What's the Murat for Bashir is Sabri.

00:03:18--> 00:03:27

Probably struggling is somebody who is silly Omri one. Okay, that's a Melissa Annie, you have to who totally my beloved brothers and sisters.

00:03:28--> 00:03:50

It is indeed an honor and a pleasure to be able to be with you again, with a live webinar on a very significant, relevant and important topic. And that is challenges in life and Islamic recipe.

00:03:51--> 00:04:05

My beloved brothers and sisters at the outset, we need to understand that in life, we cannot avoid challenges, meaning challenges are bound to be there.

00:04:07--> 00:04:19

We can control our emotions, but situations we can't control many times and they actually come as a challenge in life.

00:04:21--> 00:04:59

That's the reason this webinar is presented in order insha Allah to remind ourselves about the recipe from Allah subhanho wa Taala in the light of the Quran and the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my beloved brothers and sisters people react differently towards challenges. Some people they actually lose hope. Some people they lose control. Some people they get into depression, anxiety, and some people at times and

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

Fortunately, they lose their lives as well. Subhan Allah

00:05:06--> 00:06:07

in Islam Alhamdulillah we have been blessed with a recipe that works and deals with different kinds of challenges in a way that will help us succeed in this life. And in the year after insha Allah Allahu taala. Through this webinar in sha Allah, my beloved brothers and sisters, you will learn to get up instead of give up, you will learn to try to deal with challenges, instead of crying over the challenges. Through this webinar, Inshallah, you will be able to get certain tips and strategies in order to deal with these challenges in life, and Subhan. Allah in life, we have different types of challenges, challenges are of different nature. This is for sure that we all go through challenges.

00:06:07--> 00:06:57

But it is important to understand that we must grow through challenges. So there is a difference. We always have to actually go through challenges, but we need to learn how we can grow through challenges Insha Allah, in this webinar, this is what we are going to address. So as I said, there are different types of challenges. But if we actually classify or categorize, we can say that they can be broadly categorized into five categories. Alright, five categories that we can actually look, these challenges to be fitting in. The first challenge is the spiritual challenge. And we'll talk about it in detail. The second challenge is the emotional challenge. People go through emotional

00:06:57--> 00:07:07

challenges. People go through financial challenges, you know, people go through health challenges. And lastly, people go through social challenges.

00:07:08--> 00:08:05

Before we dwelve into each challenge and address them, I would like to reiterate, and remind myself and all of you, do you know that behind every challenge, there is an opportunity, because every challenge Subhanallah, it makes us stronger. Do you agree? Every challenge, it teaches us something on the other, every challenge, it gives us a new experience, every challenge gives us a new opportunity to look into the different window of reflection SubhanAllah. And the biggest of all, the beauty of challenges is My Beloved brothers and sisters. It takes us closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala if we don't have problems, if we don't don't have difficult situations, if we don't have

00:08:05--> 00:09:00

challenges in life, it's very rare. And very few of us, actually, they get closer to Allah subhanaw taala. But we see the vast majority of us, we actually, you know, get into closeness with Allah subhanaw taala when we have what problems, you know, we may have situations where we can't deal with it. So we go back to who to Allah subhanahu wa taala. So the biggest nevermind, a blessing indeed, as an opportunity against these challenges is we get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and return towards the reality when hamdulillah so my beloved brothers and sisters, let us take up these challenges in this webinar and try to find out what is the Islamic remedy and a recipe and a

00:09:00--> 00:09:54

solution for us in life because we need to know we need to really know about it. Because the fundamental fact that we need to understand my beloved brothers and sisters in Islam is that recognition of a challenge. Recognition of a problem is the first step of finding a solution. Subhanallah many of us we are not aware of certain problems, even you know, and eventually, you know, we don't have any answers because we don't we don't recognize those as problems as challenges. So we need to understand that that we should be number one, self aware, self aware and take ownership of those problems. We, as an individual personally have to be accountable and we are

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

responsible on an individual front for our own selves. So we need to know

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

Oh, that we have to be aware of what kind of challenges that there are there in my life, what kind of problems are there in my life, some are apparent, there are obvious, and some are not very clear, they are obscure. So we need to address both of them in our lives. And this is how we actually can sense the the problem and we can diagnose it in a way that is, that is, you know, pleasing to Allah subhanho wa taala. So my beloved brothers and sisters, the first challenge that we face, and this is the challenge that we face, every single day.

00:10:40--> 00:11:06

This is a universal challenge. This is a challenge, which is the biggest according to you know, Islamic perspective and that is a spiritual problem or a spiritual challenge, spiritual challenge, you know, what shaitan has made a promise to Allah subhanaw taala what was the promise, the promise and commitment of shaitan was that he is

00:11:07--> 00:12:10

desperate to deviate us as human beings. He, according to Allah, subhanaw taala defined as interval likoma Dovin Mubin. Most certainly, he is to you an open enemy, Allahu Akbar. So who is saying this, Allah subhanho wa taala, about Tomb Shavon. So obviously, you can't expect good things from who from enemy or shaytaan. So he is desperate to deviate. So his thirst and fundamental attack on the believers, in particular among the humans on the believers is spiritual attack. He wants us to be spiritually vague, he wants us to be spiritually collapsed. He wants us to be spiritually in crisis. He wants us to be spiritually in coma condition And subhanAllah you many of us, many of us, my

00:12:10--> 00:13:06

beloved brothers and sisters, unfortunately, gets into a trap of shaitaan and makes him a winner. But the believer, but the believer, he is always understand, he always understands the plots of Satan, and he deals with it. So spiritual challenge, we face it as an attack from shaitan on our belief, he wants to contaminate, pollute, he wants to destroy, in fact, the belief that we have in Allah subhanho wa Taala he wants number two, he wants to weaken us in our practices of our deen. Number three, he wants to collapse and destroy our luck. And number four, he wants us to, you know, contaminate and spoil our way of dealings and transactions and in ways that we actually deal with

00:13:06--> 00:13:53

and treat with others Subhan Allah, so these are the challenges from the spiritual front that he attacks, you know, us on, on our iman, our belief, he makes us weak in our practices, he destroys and he is he is there to, you know, instigate things matters, which drive us to the path of destruction when it comes to our character. And number four, he wants us to, you know, manipulate things and destroy our fair dealings. Subhanallah so this is the spiritual challenge that we have. And we'll we'll address the solution shortly in sha Allah. Number two, emotional challenge, my beloved brothers and sisters,

00:13:54--> 00:14:51

we all experience again, this emotional challenge, what is the emotional challenge all about emotional challenges about very much to do with within you number one, as a person, how you actually, you know, deal with things Subhanallah when when it comes to you, as a challenge, how do you address them? What is your mindset? How are you, you know, at your heart, how are you behaving? And what is kind of your attitude towards the challenges. So, these are our emotions, and that is the reason we need to be a person who master our emotions, not being driven by emotions. Emotions is a part of human being. In fact, it's a part of your grief, you know, creation as a whole in fact,

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

right every creature has emotions. In humans, they do have a lot of emotions, emotions, which are related to within yourself.

00:15:00--> 00:15:51

emotions related to your beloved ones, your family emotions related to your relatives, your friends, and anyone who is beloved to you. So emotionally, you are a second attacked as a as a form of challenge and how do you actually deal with those, we'll talk about it in sha Allah. The third challenge, my beloved brothers and sisters is the financial challenge. You see, whether you you look at job opportunity, and raishin life is inevitable, you know, with with challenges Subhanallah so you just got a void challenge in the financial aspect as well. So financially, people, sometimes they lose their jobs, sometimes, you know, they they have a bad career goals, sometimes they have a

00:15:51--> 00:16:45

loss in business, sometimes there is an issue of inheritance, you know, wealth, you know, conflicts. So, in different areas and dimensions, people actually face financial challenge. And we'll we'll address the remedy as well about this challenge. The fourth challenge is the health challenge, you know, SubhanAllah COVID-19, has actually created us, you know, awareness for us actually speaking, that health is beyond wealth, people, they actually are tend to give importance to the wealth over health. But now COVID-19 has brought this into our minds that come what may, you know, anything can be owned back, but not the health, once you lose it, you lose it forever. SubhanAllah. So health

00:16:45--> 00:17:37

issues, health challenges, when we undergo health challenges, how do we actually deal with them? How do we actually cater to the ways and what are the strategies to deal with those health, you know, challenges in our lives, and Subhanallah This is a game as a creation, we are weak. And obviously when we are weak, we are prone, and we are, you know, open for any and every kind of illness SubhanAllah. So it could be physical illness, it could be a weakness, with our body, it could be, you know, mental illness to cannula, it could be a person that he is getting into depression and anxiety in different ways actually speaking. So, health challenges, again, a big challenge in our

00:17:37--> 00:17:48

lives, and we need to understand how we should deal with it. The final fifth challenge that I would like to address my beloved brothers, that we know that it's a social challenge. Now socially,

00:17:49--> 00:18:37

V, many times get gets obsessed Subhanallah we want to be defined by the society, we want to be rated by the street by the people, we want to live a life which is which is seen by the people, and therefore we get ourselves as a victim in the society. And as a part of this process, we face different challenges. Because we are defined by who the society we are driven by whom, by the society, we have set expectations by who the society so what happens, we obviously take these as challenges in life Subhanallah

00:18:38--> 00:19:27

I don't mean to say that we need to be cut off from the site, not at all, that's not Islamic principle is we need to know how to deal with those challenges and we'll address them as well Inshallah, when you actually do my beloved brothers and sisters and analysis, you know, these are the five challenges that we you know, come into and we need to know how to deal with them. However, when we actually analyze it, as a case study, where we see there could be you know, five areas wherein we feel there is a there is a loss, there is a challenge that is involved, very much there. Number one, the weak belief, you know, as we said, spiritual problem of spiritual challenge. One of

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

the main common issues is the weak belief, right, this is seen as a common issue in the society number two, losing someone who you loved, whom you really care about, right? So, the second is losing the loved ones. Number three, the failures when people face face failures, be it in any area in any of these challenges that I mentioned. When they face failures, they're really brought

00:20:00--> 00:20:54

Come down, they really do know how to get up and push themselves and, you know, go forward in lights. Number three is the setbacks in life, you know, sometimes you have different setbacks in different areas in life. So, you really can actually put different kinds of setbacks from different challenges and look into from that angle number five is the injustice, you know, injustice that happens actually, in any of these challenges. Again, this is something which which is seen widespread, because of these, you know, main main areas, why people actually, you know, face challenges Subhanallah Let us now talk about the remedy, the recipe, the solution. So, as we said,

00:20:54--> 00:21:45

number one, my beloved brothers and sisters, the number one, what we need to realize whether it is a spiritual challenge, it's a emotional challenge, it is a, you know, emotional challenge, whether it is financial challenge, whether it is health challenge, or whether it is social challenge, certain guidelines are universal for all the things and you can actually address it, you know, through these principles, and through these strategies or tips, as you may take it as in dealing with these situations and, you know, challenges Subhan Allah, so, my beloved brothers and sisters, we need to understand the first thing, as the Islamic recipe as a solution for these challenges is, number one,

00:21:45--> 00:22:41

see, challenges as opportunities, I see these challenges as opportunities. Now, when we actually see these challenges as opportunities, the biggest benefit that we actually gain is, we become positive in the, in the, in the plans of Allah subhanho wa Taala we know that nothing happens without the will of Allah subhanaw taala so we actually try ourselves and Dr. With this principle in life that we need to see challenge as an opportunity. Every challenge, as I mentioned, is an opportunity is actually a lesson for us to learn in our lives. Sometimes the lessons are better, sometimes they are best sometimes, you know, we really come out of something and we can actually address a bigger

00:22:41--> 00:23:01

problem in a better way because we have gone into it. So Subhan Allah challenges the nature of challenges such that it is bound to grow you remember this mark these words they are bound to grow in it is you and me who should receive it in that way. Right. So challenges

00:23:02--> 00:23:54

should be seen as opportunity opportunities. Number one, I have read to you and I have from the Quran from Surah Baqarah surah number two is number 155. Allah subhanho wa Taala in this ayah he says I was a bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, while another Luna can be che immunol Houthi while Jewry. We're not zooming in on Valley what unfussy? What some are what were Bashir is sabe, read Allah subhanahu wa Tida. He says that surely, certainly, without an exception, we will test you, you see, meaning that every one of us will get into a challenge will have to face the challenge. So Allah says, surely, surely we will test you with something of fear. Sometimes we

00:23:54--> 00:24:45

feel things fear of loss, fear of, you know, society, your of business, fear of wealth, fear of losing loved ones. So Allah says, We will surely test you with something of fear, the fear of and the hunger, you know, sometimes we, because of our living, we do so many things, and we are we are so much you know, infused in getting those things. Subhan Allah, so Allah says, We will surely just test you with something of fear, something of hunger, loss of wealth, loss of fruits, but Allah Allah is He says, where Bashir is sobbing, and give good news to those who are patients. So every challenge, every test should be an opportunity for you. And that is the reason as I said, and you

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

can mark these words, we need to learn how to grow through difficulties, not just go through difficulties we need to grow and how do we grow by looking at as an opportunity and we have to

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

Be as I said, we have to take ownership as a problem, okay? This is a problem I have whether it is a spiritual problem, if I am actually facing some disturbances in my faith in my connection with Allah subhanaw taala I recognize that issue I need to diagnose it, I need to address that issue by connecting myself with Salah for example, connecting myself with the Quran, for example, connecting myself with a vicar for example. These are the ways how you can actually address the problem. But the main thing is you need to see those challenges are there to grow you not to break you understand that. So look at these challenges as an opportunity because they you cannot live without it. Right?

00:25:46--> 00:26:36

A lot of Isaiah He says, The purpose Subhanallah of life and death is what to test us. Allah says in surah Mulk surah number 67. Iron number two Allah Allah says Allah the Halacha moto will Hayato be your beluga calm, or you can pass on Ramadan, we have given life and death so that we may test you who is investor of conduct. So the idea is, we have to see the challenge as an opportunity. That's number one. Number two, accept Allah's plan. This is Wallahi I'm telling you this, my beloved brothers and sisters, this is by Allah, by Allah and by Allah, this is the biggest relieving factor for us as human beings as believers. In fact, we need to understand that anything that happens is by

00:26:36--> 00:27:26

the will and the plan of Allah subhanaw taala and we know macaroon. amacher Allah will allow halal market in the plan and Allah also plans but the plan of Allah is the best and Allah is the best of all planets, he planned our lives, understand that he has written everything, 50,000 years before the creation of the heavens and the earth. Before everything, he has written everything down. So everything what is unfolding every day, every week, every month, every year, ear by ear, right? It's all a plan of Allah subhanaw taala. And we need to accept the plan. As believers, we need to accept the plan of Allah, we need to willingly accept the decisions by Allah subhanho wa taala. And that's

00:27:26--> 00:28:00

the way forward for believers believe there is no other way that you can be happy, you need to do your job. Number two, you need to trust in Allah subhanaw taala and number three, you need to make dua, that your efforts be translated into results. And now before whatever result comes, submit, submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is the way forward for believers. That is the way that Islam prescribes as a recipe as a remedy as a solution for any and every challenge, be it

00:28:01--> 00:28:48

physical challenge beat a health challenge, as I said beat you know, financial challenge. You know, sometimes we want to gain something financially, but Allah subhanaw taala he has a different plan. We don't need to get upset. We don't need to be disheartened. We don't have to be disappointed. We need to submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala As believers, we need to accept the plan of Allah and remember the plan of Allah is always the best. So imagine a person has this framework, he does whatever he can from his capacity. Number two, he trusted Allah subhanaw taala he doesn't trust in the effort he trusted in Allah's plan.

00:28:49--> 00:29:37

Number three, he makes dua he says yeah, Allah, I have for example, I have I'm looking for a job and I did get you know, an opportunity and I'm actually I did really well in that opportunity in an interview everything is okay going good. And now I have done my clock my part now I am trusting Allah subhanaw taala number three I'm making dua O Allah have the opportunity make it good for me make it fair for me make it fair for my Deen make it fair for my marriage for my financial you know, uplifting make it fair for me Allah so you making dua but suddenly you receive a call that we got a better candidate that then you you don't need to be upset. You don't need to lose faith in Allah

00:29:37--> 00:30:00

subhanho Tana because you did all what you can. So rely on Allah there is a better opportunity waiting for you, my beloved brothers and sisters, whether it is your financial aspect, whether it's a social aspect, whether it is a spiritual aspect, the remedy, the recipe remains the same Subhanallah that you need to accept a

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

last blank And subhanAllah a lot of there is a says into a top student under 65 is number two three and and for a lot of reasons he says woman Yetta que la jolla Jana who Maharajah.

00:30:15--> 00:30:55

A lot of women resign. He says whoever gains the consciousness of Allah, whoever gains the Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala Allah will make a wave easy for him. So you might be in any situation any challenge spiritual challenge you have an emotional challenge and financial challenge you have you know health challenge you're going through social challenge beat any challenge the recipe remains well mine yet today La Jolla. Allah Who Maharaja Allah when Isaiah says, you gain consciousness of mine, and Allah, I will make a way for you. And Subhan Allah, Allah but it is a he goes further and he says,

00:30:56--> 00:30:58

well your resume in high school.

00:30:59--> 00:31:48

And Allah will provide in the ways in which you can't imagine Allahu Akbar. So you know, you lost one thing, you lost your beloved ones. Don't worry, everyone has to depart from this world, someone is sooner the others or later, everyone has to depart one day, everyone has to lose something one day we have to depart one day. So everything we can manage, but what we cannot and should not lose is the faith in Allah subhanaw taala the consciousness of Allah subhanaw taala that cannot be you know, put at risk at all at any point in time. So my beloved brothers and sisters have Taqwa of Allah and this is the plan of Allah that you have to take it and accept it and willfully willingly

00:31:48--> 00:32:33

submit it. Allah subhanahu wa taala he says in Surah Al Imran surah number three, number 160. Allah subhanaw taala says, if you know if Allah helps you, none can welcome you. And if Allah leaves you, who is there, who can help you, who can hold your hand, who can change your life, who can remove this problem, remove this difficulty, you know, eradicate this challenge from your life who is there? So let the believers and instruction comes from Allah. So let the believers put their complete trust in Allah azza wa jal, this is something which we need to have. And this is a pointer under the category under under octave, accept Allah's plan. That's number two, number three,

00:32:34--> 00:33:26

practice patience in life. Any challenge, you need one key ingredient which is clubbed with two actually speaking, patients and prayer patients in prayer throughout your life, whether it is in the spiritual front, whether it has to do with your your emotional, you know, life, whether it has to do with financial, social or health. Allah with Isaiah He gives, He gives a recipe Allah says in Surah Al Baqarah surah number two was dying, you know, the Sabri was salah, two great tips, comes directly from Allah subhanaw taala as a read remedy, as a recipe, seek the help of Allah through patience and prayer. When ever you face any challenge, have somebody remember this Have patience and what is

00:33:26--> 00:34:24

patience, patience, we have actually not understood it very well. It's just not a word. It's a concept. It's a concept where you and me have to go under a realization, we have to you know, undergo into a process where we have to go and forward ourselves with what Allah has commanded us. Number two, we need to make sure that we prevent from that which is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala three, which we need to understand very well that when ever anything happens, whether we understood it or we receive it as right or wrong, good or bad, we need to accept the degree of Allah subhanho wa Taala as we said, in the previous point, accept Allah's plan. So accepting the decree of

00:34:24--> 00:34:59

Allah subhanaw taala. Accepting what Allah has decreed for you and me is something which we gain through patience, and prayer. Make a habit, make a habit, every single day for any and everything you want to gain some help, and some success. Make sure that you pray and that is the reason we have for every single thing. Subhan Allah, we have patients, a lot of ERISA to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam prescribed us Salah in

00:35:00--> 00:35:51

Almost everything Subhanallah you want is the harp makes a lot you want, you know success in something or the other makes makes a lot you want to establish yourself and gain the firmness in your life makes a lot. So, Salah is everywhere, so Salah and southern is something which we have to take it as a principle for all these challenges Subhan Allah who are then number four, my beloved brothers and sisters, as a point of for us, master your mind, master your mind, meaning, understand that these challenges are temporary, but the opportunities are forever. What do I mean by this? I mean to say that these trials, these tests, these difficulties are temporary, right? As our life is

00:35:51--> 00:36:44

temporary, a lot of diseases could Lunasin the cartoon mode, every soul has to taste death, right? So we need to go through this, this phase, the phase defines and determines that we have to end one day, obviously the challenges will end with us. So what do what do we understand by this, these challenges are temporary, number one, opportunities when you and me go through patience, when we have Salah in our place, when we have Iman intact, that is all those situations are opportunities for us in these opportunities are reserved for us as what as hasard and they will carry in your grade they will be with you in our era and they will insha Allah by the mercy of Allah, Allah Riza

00:36:44--> 00:37:34

will take you to Jana. So master your mind, understand that the challenge is not bigger than you. This is very, very important for us to understand. You have to make and play your role bigger than the challenge, you might have a big challenge, understand the fact that this is not bigger than you why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala says, you know in the ayat of surah, Al Baqarah surah number two iron but 286. Now you can leave for Allah who Nisan Allah was Allah, Allah does not put a burden on you, that which you cannot bear. So Allah will never placed something on you which you cannot bear. So how come the challenge will be bigger than you? Not possible? Challenges can never be

00:37:34--> 00:38:23

bigger than us. We have to be bigger than the challenge and that's how you actually attain by mastering your mind. You should not be driven by the challenges but you should drive the challenges and that is what I call it is as challenge the challenges. Challenge the challenges. Let any challenge comes my backing is with Allah subhanaw taala I bank on Allah. My power is from Allah subhanho wa Taala my rub is Allah subhanho wa Taala my Sustainer is Allah subhanaw taala my planner is Allah subhanho wa Taala my protector is Allah subhanahu Tiana who can take anything from me when Allah is with me, Allahu Akbar, my beloved brothers and sisters. This is empowering, isn't it? Yes,

00:38:23--> 00:39:15

it is. Because this is Allah, who you're trusting my beloved brothers and sisters. So you need to understand that these challenges are temporary, but the opportunities are forever. Allah subhanaw taala also guides us with a releasing factor and that is for intermodal grocery, you syrup. A lot of Arizona says with every hardship, there is ease. When you have hardship, for example, spiritual hardship, or physical hardship, or financial hardship or emotional hardship or social hardship, any hardship, remember, in life, there is ease as well. So you don't have just problems in life. You have so many solutions in life as well. But the people who are who are, you know, who do not have

00:39:15--> 00:39:59

real trust in Allah, they focus on problems rather than on solutions. They focus on what they don't have, instead of what they have. They don't think about the blessings, they think about the issues they don't have focus on what they are blessed with by Allah subhanho wa Taala but they think what they are losing in this life, Allahu Akbar, my beloved brothers and sisters, we need to understand that Subhan Allah, these challenges are trivial, are temporary, we need to be bigger than the challenge and that is the fourth point. The final point my beloved brothers and sisters and after which inshallah we will go ahead with a question and answer session. I would really I will

00:40:00--> 00:40:16

really love to hear from you to share, you know, whatever I can, inshallah add up as a value proposition in your life be as an ally to Allah. So the final point, my beloved brothers and sisters, that we need to understand and take it as a recipe as a solution, as

00:40:18--> 00:41:08

you know, solution from the Islamic perspective for the challenges in life is, we need to take time to decide things, and consult the specialists. Now, this is very important in everyone's life, I advise you, my beloved brothers and sisters, to have a consulting, you know, consultation body, in your life, in your life, they must be specialists in different streams, whether it's spiritual, whether emotional, whether, you know, social, whether financial, whether, you know, emotional or health wise, you need to have a team of consultants who should be your consultants. So, Allah Buddha, he says, in Surah, Nahal, Surah, number 16, and 43 and many other places, a lot of resources

00:41:08--> 00:41:12

plus a new and a victory in quantum latter the moon

00:41:13--> 00:42:01

as those if you do not have that knowledge, so, what does it mean? It means that there are certain specialists in the world, in, in every field, there are certain specialists in every field, there are specialists in the spiritual, you know, area, there are specialists in the emotional area, there are specialists in the financial perspective, that are specialists with regards to social, you know, bringing of well being, there are specialists who are, you know, healthcare workers. So every area you have specialists, what you need to do in life is you need to have certain specialists in your life, who things good of you, who look for your well being who look for something that is good for

00:42:01--> 00:42:47

you, you need to have that. So when you face for example, spiritual challenge, you need to consult a specialist and share, share that problem, when you recognize don't just die with it, rather take that problem and share it. Sometimes when you do Mushara. That is, when you do consultation, it can actually bring a solution. That is what we expect, through consultation, the objective is what to get the solution so you can get the solution from the spiritual perspective. Similarly, if you have emotional challenges, you're going through relationship crisis, you're going through this trauma, you know, in your own family, consult someone who is elder who is wise, who is knowledgeable. And

00:42:47--> 00:43:32

that's how you address the issue or the challenge of emotional, you know, perspective. Similarly, for the rest of the areas you need to have and keep in your life, certain specialists and time and again, you need to consult those people, whenever there are issues and that is a part of decision making. What do you do in decision making is you bring up things together, you don't decide, just like that. You take some time you evaluate, you assess the situation, and then you you know, consult and take some opinions and then you decide what's good for you insha Allah by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala so my beloved brothers and sisters, these are the five recipes that I've shared.

00:43:32--> 00:44:17

Number one, see challenges as opportunities. Number two, accept Allah's plan. Number three, practice prayers and patients number four challenges, you know, are temporary and opportunities are our you know, permanent inshallah and number five consult specialists. So with these five Inshallah, because in Allahu Taala recipes and solutions, which are derived from the Quran, from the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, part of it is making lots of dwarves, but part of it is, you know, engaging yourself with the Quran, part of it, which is, you know, engaging yourself in the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala ensuring that you enslave a lot of enslave to Allah subhanaw

00:44:17--> 00:45:00

taala as much as you can and in serve the people as well that's how you can actually feel better. And these are the ways that you can actually find some solution isn't a lie to Allah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala my beloved brothers and sisters, we ask Allah barista to ease and release the problems, the situation's, the difficulties, the issues that each and every one are going through. We know that there are situations that are difficulties, there are problems in life. But the the good thing is we still have demand in us. The good thing is that we still rely on Allah subhanaw taala The good thing is

00:45:00--> 00:45:41

Still we are together learning about the deen of Allah subhanaw taala learning about the divine recipe, learning about that which can help us permanently and practically in sha Allah be in the light Allah I ask Allah to ease everyone's matter. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to remove the problems, the difficulties and the challenges that you are going through, I would really ask Allah to make us among those who will be in the company of SallAllahu I didn't send them witnessing the face of Allah subhanaw taala in the highest levels of Jana, my beloved brothers and sisters, as I mentioned, make sure that you share whatever you can in order that we can actually help y'all. Our

00:45:41--> 00:45:54

purpose of doing these sessions is to help ourselves first and to help you be with the wisdom and the knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah. What are your Dawa Anna and hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen

00:45:57--> 00:46:33

JazakAllah Heron Shaikh for such an insightful lecture on a well deserved topic a handful hand picked topic on the challenges in life. Snap allow her and children I can I can see some comments in the chat then this was a very, very beautiful lecture and people have definitely gained Subhanallah What beautiful tips that challenges opportunities. What a beautiful tip Alhamdulillah Inshallah, we surely have learned immensely from this lecture. Brothers and sisters, if you have any questions, you can please put it in a chat box. Shaker.

00:46:34--> 00:46:36

Can somebody pose the question orally as well?

00:46:39--> 00:47:17

Yeah, why not? If it's not very much personal, people can benefit in sha Allah. But if there is too much of challenge of taking, you know, the unmuting and all that stuff, then it's better if they can actually post it on the Zoom chat as well. So that you know, inshallah we can answer them. Your brothers and sisters, I think you know, because probably it will be very difficult for the host to individually understand who has got a question and unmute them. So we would appreciate if the questions are put in the chat box and inshallah I will pose it to the chef on your behalf. So please, please proceed. Chef. There is somebody who is saying a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa

00:47:17--> 00:48:09

barakatu. Please help me. Government, as of 25 years is the second child for me, he's unable to pass his back. His engineering exam since four years is giving exams all the time, but could not pass them. My husband is senior electrical engineering engineer at Deva shake ups for the show. Sure, sure. as we as we know that, you know, for parents, definitely, it's a point of concern, making sure that the education part of our children, you know, goes well, inshallah so the first thing that I would advise is, number one, make sure that your child is not into, you know, a trauma or not into an unnecessary stress. Sometimes what happens is, psychologically, we put so much of pressure on our

00:48:09--> 00:49:00

children, that they actually lose out the focus, they should not be, you know, pressed or or burden themselves with the, with the education, rather, they should enjoy the educational journey. So just evaluate I'm not sure whether it's the case or not, but I'm giving a general guidelines understanding this question. So number one, make sure that this your child enjoys the learning and see to it that some expert evaluate and get you can take the consultation on that particular you know, area of specialists, consult with with some specialist and ask the you know, how your child is going through and how he can actually overcome those, you know, mistakes or issues. Number three,

00:49:01--> 00:49:44

which is very, very important for us as believers, make dua make dua to Allah subhanaw taala for everything, you know, subhanAllah In fact, you know, I personally, I would say I even pray for getting the parking in Dubai, for example, sometimes, you know, because getting a parking is also sometimes really challenging. So even for the parking you pray, so a lot of whatever he says he says, the only a statue welcome, asked me and I will grant it and this is something which is really really needed my beloved brothers dua revival, this should be a notion for everyone. Sometimes we rely on our efforts. That's very, very wrong. We shouldn't rely on the efforts we should make sure

00:49:44--> 00:49:59

that efforts are in full swing to the best of our abilities, but we rely on Allah subhanho wa taala. So success comes from Allah Buddha is so make dua a lot. Number four, you also need to ensure that you

00:50:00--> 00:50:48

When when he is going through that exam, whether it is of his interest or not, sometimes we don't get through from certain, you know, areas of specialists, you know, the children they can't go through, because that's not of their interest. We enforce sometimes certain things which we want them to be. That's not the ideal way of upbringing. Ideally, we need to know the interest of our children, and we need to give them support in order to accelerate and Excel Excel in those areas of interest. So these are the things that I have in mind and you can make sure that there are certain to us for increased improvement of the memories for example, or President Wilma for example. Hola.

00:50:48--> 00:51:28

Hola, Sandra. Illa magia alto Santa wanted the GI Bill has not either shaped Asana sometimes you can also decide, you know, your your child can, you know, recite certain ayat of the Quran for example, rubbish. Rouhani sundry why a surly angry one Okidata melissani Yes, Kaho coli. So these are the two R's, which involves the matter of easiness the matter of seeking the help from Allah subhanaw taala the matter of improving your mind your mental, you know, ability. So when you adopt these things, insha Allah be as an Allah, He to Allah, I hope, and I pray, and I asked everyone to pray for this child, may Allah

00:51:30--> 00:51:36

you know, get him through from this exam, whenever he appears for it next time in sha Allah isn't likely to either

00:51:38--> 00:52:20

mean I mean, I just allow for that wonderful answer. I'm sure sister will benefit from it. And we all pray that made the brother clear all his backlogs and all his exams. I mean, Sheikh the Another question is, when you spoke with regards to the specialist, what should we do when we can't find a specialist? So, like, if somebody is in a situation where they are unable to go to a specialist, so what can they do? Right now, it depends on, you know, where you live in, for example, it's very hard to believe that there are no specialists out there, there are definitely certain specialists out there who are dedicated sometimes you know, for the for the help, so, it depends on which area that

00:52:20--> 00:53:11

you are looking a specialist on for example, if you're looking for life skills, go to you know, people who are who are, you know, with with a lot of Eman in them, not anyone who is you know, sitting out there just to you know, earn money, but, depends like, if you are not able to find specialists, you can in fact, send an email to us with regards to what are the issues that you have and we will inshallah take upon us to link you with certain specialists in the area that you require help Inshallah, and that is the purpose of our center will Hamdulillah that we try and strive to help people and create some value in their lives. Insha Allah, we want to touch people's lives, we

00:53:11--> 00:53:36

want to help you out. So the fact that you are actually already in the session asking this question is an opportunity actually speaking? Well hamdulillah so you can actually write to us an email asking what kind of you know, help that you require? And inshallah we will make sure that you are linked up with someone who is a specialist in in thing what you are looking for inshallah be the right item.

00:53:39--> 00:53:51

Just have a low orange shade, and may Allah reward you for that answer. And here there is another question. Salam aleikum, shade. Welcome slob. Please, what advice do you have for me

00:53:53--> 00:54:16

having thoughts about that, and this makes me have panic attacks and depress me because it keeps saying what if it is now and I pray for long life? Along the line? It makes me avoid sin and easy to Allah. What am I? What is the negative feeling that is attached? Comes please advise me Sheikh I have been having this feeling every day for over three years.

00:54:18--> 00:54:59

At the outset, I ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant ease and peace in your life in sha Allah. I mean, my beloved brothers or sister whoever is asking this question, remembering death is a blessing. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Remember, the destroyer of pleasures. The Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, he said, Remember, the destroyer of pleasures. And what is the destroyer of pleasure is death. The wise men they say that whenever you remember death, the first thing that gives you benefit is that you do not die you you know things

00:55:00--> 00:55:48

In this world, as much as you value Allah subhanaw taala. And being in our era, number two benefit of death is it makes you content, you are satisfied because they, you have to leave, you know, a billionaire cannot prevent himself from death. A billionaire cannot prevent himself from death. He can't say the Angel of Death, you know what, you take a billion and just leave me, he can't he can't say that. A celebrity, no matter who is a, you know, they can't prevent that. So death is certain. So what, what Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam meant was, remember, the destroyer of pleasure is because in reality, the moment we die, the moment we die, we are cut off, and we are disconnected

00:55:48--> 00:56:39

with every beloved ones. And with every beloved things, we disconnected. So that's destroyed off pleasure, the pleasure that we were taking through our, you know, family, friends, relatives, and through the pleasure that we take from the things that the house, because the bungalows and what not all things are the pleasures of this room, we, the death is a destroyer of these pleasures. So the point is, we need to remember that for sure. And that helps us actually speaking, it should not scare us rather, it should make us more vigilant more, you know, wise, and more strong in terms of thinking that Subhanallah If I die, for example, if I'm talking to you, right now, I'm a die, while

00:56:39--> 00:57:10

you're listening to me, you might die. So dying is not a problem. The problem is what goes after we die. So Subhanallah if you are getting panic, because of that, just try to re evaluate that they should not be things which you love so intensely, that you are, you know, scared to, you know, leave them and go to Allah subhanaw taala. So, reduce the love of this dunya

00:57:11--> 00:57:20

as compared to the love of Asherah this is something which can help you out. When you manage, you know, we all have attachments with our

00:57:23--> 00:57:44

bad that's a part of lives. In fact, that's something which is governed by Islam, that is accountable by Allah subhanaw taala, but extensive attachment or excessive closeness with people and things will actually make you worry, you need to understand this fact.

00:57:45--> 00:58:37

And that is you have only one beam whom you have to have unlimited love and bondings and that is Allah subhanaw taala and the one who will never whom you will never use, that's the only one Allah Allah is whom you have to have extreme Unlimited, you know, inflight loves Han Allah, but with the people you need to have love but in in a in a very manageable way, that when you lose someone, you shouldn't be the one who will commit suicide next, no, you need to understand that everyone has to depart. So the panic that you are creating, make sure that your attachment for this dunya should should turn down it should it should come into a manageable way where you don't feel so much of

00:58:37--> 00:59:24

attachment for the for these things. But if your worry is like when you die, what will happen. So the the Weizmann they say that, and the scholars of Islam, they say the intelligent and the wise person is the one who remembers his death and you prepares for it. So you need to prepare for your death. And my and I have to prepare for my death, because that is certain, it's going to happen any moment anytime without any invitation. So we need to have that that notion that that perspective in mind, and we don't have to be, we don't have to get into panic or in trauma. Thinking about it. Rather, we should focus on the preparation, not on the passing over. We need to definitely ask Allah

00:59:24--> 00:59:59

Allah Riza for good ending for good ending because what matters in Islam is your ending. So you need to prepare yourself and you need to ask Allah subhanaw taala that Oh Allah, you know have my my last moments as karma will create the ending with hair with goodness insha Allah and inshallah love and you also have the remembrance of Allah as Allah says in surah Rotto number 13 and 28 Allah busy Karela he taught in non Kulu the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala gives true

01:00:00--> 01:00:29

and quality Sakina sukoon satisfaction pleasure in real, real joy in your heart. So when you do vicar of Allah inshallah you will be stable, you will be strong, you will be able to face things and you will be able to have the right priorities in your life. And that's how we have to move forward as believers. JazakAllah Harun Sheikh, may Allah may Allah grant this beautiful land all of us, Amin

01:00:30--> 01:00:43

Sheikh the next next question, what is the duty if we already failed to face a challenge, according to the pleasure of Allah and later realize it, especially when it is related to others? That is others?

01:00:47--> 01:01:36

Look, the idea is we all face failures, we all go wrong in our lives, it's impossible to think that I will not go wrong or you will not go wrong. We all face problems, and we all do face failures. facing failure is a part of our life. And this is something which is dandy. Now, what happens when, as in your case, what happens when you actually face a failure and you displease Allah subhanaw taala. And someone else is also affected by that. Now, with regards to Allah subhanaw taala, Allah subhanaw taala has, you know, arms are wide open, Allah is ever ready to forgive any and every one any and every time. So Angela, every single night, the last third part of the night, he comes down

01:01:37--> 01:02:33

to the lowest heavens as it shoots to His Majesty in us and gives a call to every one of us who is there who wants to be forgiven, I will forgive so the call of Allah is coming every single day. Our V responding to that call is a question. So if you have done something wrong, the moment you realize it itself is a NEMA is a blessing. Because those who have emaan in themselves, they actually regret and they realize that I've done something wrong. So treat it as a blessing. Number one, number two, turn to Allah for repentance, and Insha Allah, Allah will resign. He says in Allah young Pharaoh do Luba Jeremy Jermy, Allah is ready to forgive everything Insha Allah, as long as your sins your your

01:02:33--> 01:03:22

repentance is sincere. And number three, if someone else is involved and got effected and damaged through this act of yours, then you need to make sure that you seek forgiveness from that person. But if it has something to do with materialistic things, then to the best of your abilities, try to compensate with that person while you're alive. So that inshallah you don't have any regretful feeling in your heart and you know, that inshallah with the Toba that you make sincerely to Allah subhanaw taala He will forgive you and that's how you actually sought this matter out. Allah Allah masala just have a locker and share. Shaker The next question is from a student, a family members

01:03:22--> 01:03:28

fight with each other often has I am a student? How should we take it? How should we deal with it?

01:03:29--> 01:03:30

Right.

01:03:31--> 01:04:18

When family members, they fight with each other, the first thing we need to know who is fighting for example, if you are a kid, and your parents are fighting, you need to if you're mature enough, you need to talk to your father separately, talk to your mother separately, and try to share if you have a handler that that wisdom and that, you know, value based education from the Quran and the Sunnah, then you need to end you know, counsel them, advise them and try to reconcile with them in sha Allah, and that's how you can actually address them individually. And when you talk to them, sometimes it is even allowed, sometimes it is in even allowed to speak alive, as we know,

01:04:19--> 01:04:59

for the betterment of reconciling two people together. SubhanAllah. So you can you know, say good things about your, your father, to your mother, for example, if even if that that good thing doesn't exist in the Father and saying you can do with the mother as well. And if the if the family members meaning if there are brothers and sisters, if they are talking fighting with each other, try and understand and make them understand from the fundamental or the outcome of that fight. What is the outcome of that fight, and even sometimes you can actually go and

01:05:00--> 01:05:40

Find out why they are fighting at the first instance, what are the root reasons why they are fighting. So if they are fighting because they don't like each other, make sure that you work on those things, which can bring them closer and they can start liking to each other. If they are fighting, because of some, you know, financial issues, make sure that you bring in someone who is either and dearer to both the parties who can be an arbitrator, and to resolve that issue for them. If it's because of the you know, spiritual thing, then you can consult someone who is an alum, who is a chef, who can actually counsel both parties and resolve these issues. So it is it is this way

01:05:40--> 01:05:46

how you can actually address and deal with with them insha Allah isn't Allah to Allah? Which is Allah?

01:05:48--> 01:06:36

Once again, for that comprehensive answer, Sheikh there's another question from a sister, please help me I cannot have emotional trauma, but could not discuss it with my parents, nor could I find a specialist, because I'm not that much open in cases of talking about my problems. But the more I keep silent, the more I'm getting depressed, what should I do? Right now, this is very common issue, actually speaking, you know, because of that guilt, because of the insecurity that you actually live with. This is the reason why what kills you actually speaking, you know, silence many times, it is it leads people to destruction. You know, we need to understand that emotional trauma is something

01:06:36--> 01:07:20

like any physical illness, when you are physically ill, who do you consult, you can't say that, you know, what, I have fever, and that is intense. And I will not go to doctor because I'm shy, you don't see that. Right. So similarly, understand that emotional trauma is also a kind of sickness, and you don't have to be ashamed of that. You don't have to be, you know, living with a guilt and with a, with a complex in your mind and your life. And you know, you don't have to be, you know, feel insecure because of that. No, you need to consult and you need to open up Allah subhanho wa taala. He says, In the Quran, you had Latina, I'm gonna talk Allah, Gulu Golan, sadita, or you will

01:07:20--> 01:08:11

believe be conscious of Allah, and speak straightforward, you need to be open, clear, and straightforward. Many times this itself will bring you a solution in your life. I understand sometimes you don't want to be open with someone who's you know, whom you feel that when you share that such kind of, you know, things with them, they may get really affected and it will become it will be counterproductive, in fact, so, but make sure that you try to find out someone and release the guilt or the pressure that you have in your heart and release it, release it when and that is released only by Shane. There is no other way. You know, in son, it comes from wounds, you know that

01:08:11--> 01:08:22

it has that that that belongingness that link that relationship with each other. So when you communicate your issues, only then you can expect the solution.

01:08:24--> 01:09:14

I'm sure you're you're you're able to follow it. Make sure that you speak out your issues, your problems, many times it is resolved only by sharing Subhanallah who knows Allah will put a point of, you know, advice in the person's mind. And subhanAllah you will get a wonderful suggestion. That beautiful, one piece of advice can change your life by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala so who knows, this could happen in sha Allah. So don't be shy enough to share things of this nature. Fundamentally, make sure that you consistently pray to raka every single day you know as a special tool aka making a Nia that you know, Allah gives you relief from this emotional trauma that you're

01:09:14--> 01:10:00

going through Salah Subhan Allah salah, does wonders in our life will line Salah does wonders in our life, understand this fact. So Salah is a solution treated as a solution, as I said was Torino with Sabri was Salah. So you need to seek the help of Allah through patience and prayer. So I would advise you these two things. Number one, keep yourself engaged with with Salah going through June and ask Allah make dua that's the position which is the best position I call it as for the believer for the worshipper of Allah subhanaw taala. Leave aside those positions of the CEO, the managing director, the chairman levers like every other position, the best position of

01:10:00--> 01:10:23

A believer is right there in the sujood where he finds Allah to be the closest with him. So go into Jude, make Salah and also consult, consult if not parents, consult someone who can help you out in giving you and give you a beautiful piece of advice in the light of the Quran and the teachings of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

01:10:25--> 01:10:55

which is our current shape for that comprehensive answer I'm sure system benefit from it. There is another question from one of the sisters and I presume this is a common problem nowadays. She says my son's 23 years old is a Halford mashallah, but now he's 24 hours with mobile games he praises for when the time is running out. He doesn't read Quran. When I tell him to pray or recite Quran, he becomes wild. And arrogantly replies mind your own business.

01:10:58--> 01:11:24

Sister, you need to you need to tell him minding your business is my business Subhanallah mining, you know, parents, business is minding children's business, for that matter, just on the side notes, anyways, how to deal with this issue. Actually, we are many times the originator of that problem, we need to accept and agree to that many times we make, you know,

01:11:26--> 01:12:22

this tool, which could be a part of success, or it could be a path of failure or destruction, this mobile or for that matter, gaming and these things, this could take them closer to Allah or by far, they can take away, take them away from Allah subhanaw taala. So many times, fundamentally, through this question, I would like to say that to myself and to everyone out there, that we have to make sure that we take control of our children, right at an early age and define them the limits of the usage of anything for that matter. When we define the limitations for them, it becomes a lot more healthier, and it will definitely reap out some happier ways for you and all of us. So making sure

01:12:22--> 01:13:28

that fundamentally, we don't become the root cause of those consequences that we face today. That's number one. Number two, now that you have already are encountering the problem, making sure that he being a hospital Quran, he needs to be counseled in a very different way minded that you cannot treat current generation with the way that we were treated by our parents or our parents were treated by our grandparents, we need to treat them wisely, we need to understand the fact that they are matured. And they have to be counseled, treated, advised in a certain way, that does not take away the Eagles take away that the tempos meaning that they have to know that what's going out from

01:13:28--> 01:14:20

the from the parents, from mother or father for that matter is something which is good for them, not for bad reasons. And what I would also like to highlight is there are two things that we need to keep in mind. In Islam. The there are two things that comes in when it comes to tarbiyah when it comes to governance or when it comes to, you know dealing with with issues such of such nature. Number one, the instruction itself, which is obviously as a as a parent, you know that it's good. Number two, the way should also be good. So the way makes a lot of sense. It matters a lot when it comes to tarbiyah. So you need to find out ways for example, you need to be a child with the child

01:14:20--> 01:14:51

for the first for some for some time, you need to enjoy with them, or perhaps few Romans have what they are doing, to be able to be with them and to be able to give them confidence that you know what, I'm with you if you want to enjoy life for a certain period in a limited time. I'm there for you when we can both enjoy but then later on slowly, gradually he will understand that you are a good

01:14:52--> 01:14:59

advisor and counselor and that's how they will start teaching. They will start receiving the teachings that you are

01:15:00--> 01:15:50

giving to them. So, there are so many things that actually requires for us Inshallah, we are also planning to conduct a webinar on the topic, steps and strategies to raise pious children Inshallah, I'm sure Inshallah, in that same webinar, we can address this at length but in short, we need to understand that the instruction and the way must be proper, many times we adopt the right instruction, but we practice a wrong way. And we actually face certain consequences that we are facing today. May Allah make it easy for you and for the rest of the parents and guide all the children for for for respecting their parents at par excellence insha Allah

01:15:51--> 01:16:34

and just allow handshake, may Allah make it easy for all the parents and may we be able to raise pious students and keep them away from this Ignaz and piles. I mean, shake we have three more minutes to go for Maghrib Shala and there are more than we'll take one last question shall one last question inshallah. Brothers and sisters, we are sorry, we will not be able to take all the questions that are more than 39 questions right now shape and we will take the last question each and every one for for for this effort. I mean, I mean, I have bipolar disorder, I feel down for petty reasons and feel down very often. So self value is also very less so what would you advise a

01:16:35--> 01:17:24

bipolar is actually a mental illness where medically you need to get treatment, I'm sure you're going through that. But at the most what you need to also do and rely upon is the recipe from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And you know, he taught us so many dramas for, you know, anxieties, and this bipolar, you know, diseases and for that matter, any kind of stressing thing that we are going through, you know, so we need to make dua as for for that purpose, and to, obviously, which is very, very important to understand that a lot of ERISA has given the Quran as Shiva lemma is to do, this is a cure and a solution for whatever lies in your

01:17:24--> 01:18:18

hearts, meaning it could be bipolar, it could be depression, it could be anxiety, it could be heart, you know, failures, it could be anything walleye have extreme and intense belief in the kalam of Allah subhanaw taala and read it, read it, because many, many of us we do not read the Quran as a Shiva. We read it either to, you know, gain burqa we read it to understand four by four and we read it to reflect but also one of the offerings from the Quran is also that it provides solutions to your issues, whether it is mental issue, physical issue, emotional issue in nature. So Allah Allah says, this is the Quran is live Shiva only Matthew pseudo. This is a cure in whatever that exists in

01:18:18--> 01:18:30

your chest. So make sure that you read Quran and listen to Quran with an intention that oh Allah give me the ability and give me strength to make

01:18:31--> 01:19:15

self management number one, number two, help me to drive my emotions in a way that is, you know, good for myself and others and make sure that insha Allah over a period of time, many times it's V over exaggerate things many times so make sure that you don't over exaggerate, you know the issue that you have insha Allah trust in Allah, take the recipe from the Quran that is a collab of Allah inshallah You will be alright be in reliance Ira I ask Allah subhanaw taala to to heal you and heal everyone who is going through any and every kind of challenge insha Allah is an Ilahi to add.
