00:00:47 --> 00:01:22

praise Allah we seek his aid and his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and the evil of our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allah guides none chemists guide and whomsoever Allah allow us to be led astray, none can guide a right and I've ever witnessed that there's no one worthy of worship except Allah the Exalted in that Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him is his last messenger and slave. Oh, you believe through Allah and dinette except in a state of submission to Him alone. Humanity figure Lord Who created you from a single soul being Adam, from that created his mates and from that scatters many men and women of humanity for your Lord and do not cut off

00:01:22 --> 00:01:57

relations with your kin and deed Allah as the ultimate monitor over you of humanity for your Lord and speak the truth, in order for law to accept you have your deeds and forgive you of any sins you may have committed. And indeed, whoever follows Allah and His Messenger has indeed achieved the greatest achievement as to what follows the best feature is the book of Allah to Allah. And the best guidance is that of a Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him and of the worst affairs in our doctrinal system of Islam are the newly invented wands for every newly invented affair in this situation is an innovation. And for every innovation is a form of going astray. And every form of

00:01:57 --> 00:02:06

going astray isn't the fire of *, a man walks inside of the waiting room, asks where his relative is.

00:02:08 --> 00:02:20

He was told by the nurse at the charge station, when she pointed to the direction of the clothes curtain. He walks over there, he opens the curtain and he sees his relative relative is about to get surgery.

00:02:22 --> 00:02:44

And he walks in. And he has sat and he sat in at the situation. It leads him to speak about what were the things that that individual did, or what was done to them that led them to that particular sickness, or was a particular ailments to where it required surgery.

00:02:45 --> 00:03:03

But the person that was Musab the person that was the patient kept telling them, it's okay. Don't worry about it. It's fine. It happens. It just happened to me. It's okay. But the relative out of Ishfaq out of sadness for them is saying no.

00:03:04 --> 00:03:08

To her, the patient just outright said, look, let's stop complaining.

00:03:10 --> 00:03:14

Let's do what's within our power. And let's hope that everything turns out okay.

00:03:15 --> 00:03:26

Complaining brothers and sisters. There have been many changes that have taken place within these past couple of months and many of us don't want to hear about Okay, is there another COVID chutzpah?

00:03:28 --> 00:03:32

But in reality, a lot of these changes that take place will continue.

00:03:33 --> 00:03:45

The most important thing is what is the attitude of the Muslim? What is the attitude of a person that has a belief and the one that has created everything and allows things to happen? Good, bad and quote unquote, ugly.

00:03:46 --> 00:04:00

When we complain, we really have to evaluate the situation and ourselves, the situation and ourselves what happens to and around us and our response to those events.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:04

The reasons that we complain are primarily to

00:04:05 --> 00:04:58

being complacent and impatient, complacent and impatient. How, how is it that when we are complacent it breeds or genders, lack of pleasure to where we complain. Many of us have had a new supervisor in our job, or many of us have went to a new location or had a new position. And we have encountered or we have been the individual that has complained, because of the change. We naturally do not like change. Some of us when hearing that we had to stand six feet apart. We were not happy. Some of us complained in our households. Some of us complained when we were at home and the mosque was closed. Some of us complained that we have to wear masks

00:05:00 --> 00:05:34

Many of us have complained on one or maybe some of us haven't complained on any of these or have heard someone that has. Because we naturally do not like change if we're used to something we don't want to change. And this was the essence of why the people went against their prophets, when they would call them to change the most important factor of their lives, which was to whom we are being, which was where is your heart? Or Should your heart be devoted to? And how do you manifest that devotion,

00:05:36 --> 00:05:47

when it was calling to one God, and when it was calling to following the man that was trustworthy, unknown, it was difficult for them because it went against what was commonly practice, it went against the norm.

00:05:48 --> 00:05:51

And the second thing that we see is impatience.

00:05:53 --> 00:05:55

All of us suffer from impatience.

00:05:56 --> 00:06:00

Many of us know that when we drive on the road, and we're trying to get somewhere

00:06:01 --> 00:06:13

and someone blocks us and we do not find out within the next 30 seconds, what is going on, we may say, do or at least feel some kind of way that could possibly be out of character.

00:06:14 --> 00:06:15

We are impatient.

00:06:17 --> 00:06:23

But what's important for us is to accept that reality as a loss of Hannah with the analysis and the chapter of marriage.

00:06:24 --> 00:06:41

He said afterward, we'll never cheat on a gene in Santa Holika helluva either master who shot who just who are either Master who will hire men who Allah says that mankind was fairly he was created hallouwe and Yanni Heller, Adam, a suburb

00:06:42 --> 00:07:16

that mankind was created impatient. And then he defines it with a similar word, either Messiah who shot who just who is evil, quote, unquote, evil or what he perceives that evil at the moment, if he was or she was to have to be afflicted by that they are impatient, they are sorrowful, they are angry, what either Messiah who hate all men who and if God was to befall him or her, if something good, quote unquote, that they perceive as good was to happen to them, they are prohibited they prohibit from giving, they prohibit from spreading that clear.

00:07:18 --> 00:07:26

So when seeing Allah subhanaw taala acknowledges and lets us know about ourselves tells us about ourselves.

00:07:27 --> 00:07:35

Whether you admit it, accept it or not, is totally up to you. But accepting that truth is what is most important

00:07:36 --> 00:07:52

that we are created as people that we want something immediately and as we see in this society, the press of a button can start your car, the press of a button can fire someone, the press of a button in a matter of seconds can fulfill your desire whatever you want.

00:07:53 --> 00:08:27

And when something less than that happens takes more time, we express or show an attitude of impatience. So when understanding these two primary aspects of complaining, let's look at evaluate ourselves and see am I someone that does not accept change even if I know that it may be for the better? And am I someone when that change happens? Or when something happens to me that I do not anticipate expect once? Am I impatient? Of Hulu? Call it hello stuff Lolly welcome resettling Muslim InfraStop throw in a horrible following.

00:08:35 --> 00:08:40

Alhamdulillah here on a Sunday he was sugar level and tofi on tonight.

00:08:41 --> 00:09:20

So understanding this brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu ala he was setting them speaks about this in numerous places in the Quran. There are many events that took place with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the companions that addressed this reality. Firstly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given some meat or some soup. And the companion relates it's a female she gave him some soup with some bread and the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam dipped his fingers in it for a Hinako cassava and it burned his fingers. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Salah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said has and some say hassy It's kind of like an

00:09:20 --> 00:09:21

expression like

00:09:23 --> 00:09:36

upon that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something to remind himself and all of us he said in Nibbana Adam is a sovereign who borrowed do Allah has were either a saw but who rehearsal Allah has

00:09:37 --> 00:09:46

Subhanallah he says, mankind upon this he was burned, His fingers were burned. He said Subhan Allah mankind, if used to be a flick
