consideration others that may be around them taking consideration their health, many factors that the mature deliberate person has to understand now we have deliberation and determination determination is ASME is ASTM and deliberation is to unmute or enter. As we know one companion that was came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after the whole group of individuals rushed to him and we mentioned this in another, another gathering. When the prodigal son came to Medina they all rushed him, but he stood back, he was deliberate. And some say he changed his clothes and wore clean clothes in approached him, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, in the figure,

00:01:44--> 00:02:27

lacosse Latina you hit boom, Allahu wa rasuluh. He said, There Verily, there are two characteristics in you that a lot His Messenger love. And then he said, as a Hindu will enter an Hellmuth webinar, which is patience, or gentleness, and deliberation. So here, deliberation is something in this so hobby, he waited for everyone. And then he approached him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when we have determination, it's very important that we have deliberation before that determination, and then proceed on with the action, that we're careful and consider it how one of the best ways of doing that is to have sure to consult those that you trust. This was a practice of the Prophet

00:02:27--> 00:03:09

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Rather, it was an order from Allah Subhana, who would to add to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to do with his companions, when he told them for whom was still following Michel, with whom Phil when he told them part when he told himself Salaam, pardon them, by a scar to heartache by lessening your rights and considering them Do not worry about your rights, pardon them, was still for the level and to seek forgiveness from them from Allah from any shortcomings in how Allah was shared with whom feel Amelie, and to consult them.

then trust in a lawsuit panel does you see here, determination by seeking consultation, or excuse me deliberation by seeking consultation. Then after they see the cost of the consultation, he has the intention to do something to Nia, then he is determined to do that thing. And he trusts in Allah subhanho wa Tada. deliberation does not mean that you do not trust in Allah. Rather, it is taking the proper means that Allah has given you on this earth to properly trust in Allah. Because you see, Allah gave him in order to do something before actually saying to what cut Allah subhanho wa Taala. And also, we as individuals do not want to miss understand patients, that one should be patient, but

00:03:53--> 00:04:32

one should act. The problem lies in between those two things to where you're too patient, and it leads to analysis paralysis, and you don't or you're spontaneous, there's a fine line. And we see in this beautiful verse, and of the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. One should not say not to have his action, deliberation to where it makes them handicapped, and don't do anything, because that will be full of regrets, act, do the action and trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala was there in Billa. Well, that touches him as opposed to some said, seek help and Allah and do not give up. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us of those that are deliberate within our actions that are

00:04:32--> 00:04:44

thoughtful primarily of what our Creator wants from us, and make us of those that seek trust in Him seek His help and trust in him. When we do the action. A Samadhi can refer to it over the cat. Thank you
