Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:03--> 00:00:20

We deeply regret for the inconvenience caused because of the technical issues. And I'm sure Allah will grant us adger for this meeting, because we all have been waiting for knowledge knowledge in the way of Allah subhanaw taala So, I request the sheet again to please resume this

00:00:22--> 00:00:32

learning exercise and the sheet will be back shortly. So please bear with us for this technical breakdown which we have just had

00:00:34--> 00:00:35

certain times

00:00:36--> 00:00:38

these issues cannot be avoided.

00:00:41--> 00:00:56

Shake if you are back, can you please resume? Yeah, inshallah we have shaker with us right now. So once again, we apologize and we will ask the heat to please bless us with this knowledge. Thank you so much.

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

Sharla said I'm ready como Rahmatullahi wa barakato

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

leak Muslim?

00:01:04--> 00:01:13

Brother farakka. I must mention this Subhan Allah when we talk about problem solving, there comes a problem in technical you know, side of it, Mashallah.

00:01:16--> 00:01:24

Mashallah, Mashallah, indeed but Alhamdulillah we'll be back soon. So Alhamdulillah, Allah has granted us the solution for that problem Alhamdulillah

00:01:26--> 00:02:13

that gives us the sense that Subhan Allah every problem has a solution. The point is, we shouldn't give up we should not ever give up insha Allah. So let me reiterate what I was mentioning. hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim Ali, he was happy in my beloved brothers and sisters, welcome, again to our second live webinar on the topic problem solving series, our topic that we are continuing in sha Allah in the session two is personnel problems, I was mentioning about the areas of problem or the categories of problems that we can actually, you know, zoom in and see that there are problems that could fall under one of the categories whether it is

00:02:13--> 00:03:03

spiritual category, whether it is physical or health issue, category, whether it is social problem, that will, we'll face problem, whether it is you know, on the academic or the courier, you know, up front, whether it is Subhanallah, on on, on financial level that we face problems. So, problems, as I was mentioning, are bound to be there in our lives. And this is kind of inevitable. So the only way to move forward in our lives is to ensure that we deal with them. Running away escaping from the problem is never a solution. And Subhanallah if we just close our eyes on the bride day night, or you know on the bride date, that doesn't make it as a knight, it's just that we are closing our

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

eyes, so the day will remain there. So we need to ensure that we move forward in our life. So problems could come or will fall under one of these five categories. And when we actually categorize the problem, then it will be much easier for us actually speaking, to deal with them with wisdom and knowledge in sha Allah. We also mentioned about the

00:03:29--> 00:04:24

core principle we call it Golden Rule of problem solving. Having this mindset will ensure and will give us strength and skill to be able to deal with any sort of problems any time whenever it comes in our way. And the golden rule as we mentioned to how long my beloved brothers and sisters is number one. Number one, believe that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the ultimate problem solver and submitted to him believe in the ultimate problem solver and that is Allah subhanho wa Taala and submit yourself to Him. And you'll see that Subhan Allah problems will depart from your life or even when problems come on your way. Allah will give you strength and ability to deal with those

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

problems, inshallah it will be a different ballgame altogether. The second thing which we need to ensure and understand and believe and practice, my beloved brothers and sisters, is that are on is the book of solutions for the problems of the humanity. So we need to find out, investigate and look into the Glorious Quran to find out solutions for the problems in sha Allah. The third golden rule to prepare our mind and to have this kind of mindset

00:05:00--> 00:05:50

It is the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is indeed, the practical demonstration of dealing with all sorts of problems. So Hanalei was mentioning this to someone, you know, just few days back, that when anything comes from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, it is just not a lip service. It is definitely not a lip service, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had actually gone under those situations, those scenarios, those problems, he actually and physically witnessed those, and then he actually advised us the solution. Therefore, the problems that he thinks we are also going to face and the people who's going to come after us will also face and the solution was

00:05:50--> 00:06:41

given by the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, which is realistic, and practical Subhan Allah so we can never, ever ignore the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when it comes to problem solving in our life. So Allah is the ultimate problem solver. Quran is the book of solutions, and three, the life of the prophets and the lower and Islam is the practical demonstration of problem solving. So panela We also mentioned that many of us, if not all, many of us, in our minds, problems are the definition of problems, or the perception of the problems is quite shallow, you know, whenever we talk about, or we interview or we discuss about, you know, the people's problem, they

00:06:41--> 00:07:12

say that, you know, I have anxiety, I have, you know, depression, my life is full of stress, I have, you know, problem of, you know, bipolar disorder, I have a confused mind, I'm not able to focus anything, I have a financial distress, My children are not behaving well, or I have family problems, I have a social disconnect, people will actually throw these problems, we can never, ever

00:07:13--> 00:08:09

avoid or alleviate these problems. But the real problems that we are supposed to think Subhanallah are these problems, number one, number one, my beloved brothers and sisters, having weak Eman, this is the point that should actually bother us the most, if I'm not able to connect myself with Allah subhanaw taala that is a real problem. If I'm not able to have that good relationship with my Creator with my makeup, that is a real problem, if I'm not able to believe with certainty in Allah subhanaw taala that is a real problem. So my problem, you know, it should not be you know, sidelined only or limited these sort of things which we will deal with it insha Allah so when we have this

00:08:09--> 00:09:01

perception that if I'm not able to have good relationship with Allah subhanaw taala Well, that is a problem. We need to recognize we need to identify in our lives, whether this problem exists or not. And Subhanallah in many cases, in our lives, these problems do exist and because we do not actually solve these problems, we are not able to resolve other minor or tiny problems Subhan Allah so the first problem that we need to recognize and identify in our lives this is my is my Eamon week in Allah subhanaw taala and we should work on, on on the problem of this nature. The second thing, my beloved brothers and sisters is missing Salah many of us we miss Salah like anything somehow No.

00:09:02--> 00:09:43

Well, that should be treated as one of the biggest problems. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us that on the Day of Judgment, the first among all the questions that will be asked is about Salah about prayer. It's not going to be asked about value and you know anxious in your life. Did you have depression in your life? No, this is not the question that's going to be asked primarily. So primarily, we need to treat this as a problem and solve those problems. So why I'm highlighting these My beloved brothers and sisters, many times we actually tend to forget and fail to realize to address these problems and find out these solutions somehow to life. We are not

00:09:43--> 00:10:00

able to recognize this as a problem itself. Then how are we suppose to bring up the solution in our lives to deal with these problems Subhan Allah so we need to understand and identify the problem of having week in

00:10:00--> 00:10:49

Allah number one number two missing Salah Is it is it a problem? You know, in my life? If yes that I need to fix it, I need to deal with it soon and Allah number three My beloved brothers and sisters is to identify that I'm not, am I not touch in touch with the Quran? Am I reading the Quran and deep down in my heart? Is my life touched by the Quran or not? If not, then that is a problem that should be treated as a real problem. If I or my life is not connected with the Quran, then that is a real problem. Because if I'm having that problem Subhan Allah, I will not be able to solve other problems, always understand that. The fourth problem, the real problem that we should also, you

00:10:49--> 00:11:43

know, find in our lives is not utilizing our life as much as we should, not utilizing our lives, in all sense, should be a real problem. You know, if I am not being utilized for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala for the pleasure of Allah and my life is going in terms of origin direction of displeasing love, that is a real problem. My underutilization of life is a real problem. Why? Because I have just one chance one life that said, If I die now, my biggest worry is how am I going to answer Allah subhanho wa Taala. So my beloved brothers and sisters, we need to identify and recognize this as a as a problem as a real problem. Insha Allah, the fifth problem that we need to

00:11:43--> 00:12:04

always identify and recognizes, am I am I working for gaining my akhira in this life, I have to identify you have to identify I have to recognize, you have to recognize is this a problem in my life, that I'm not able to, you know,

00:12:05--> 00:12:55

move forward in my life, or work towards gaining a asherah because if I'm not striving for it, then in reality, I'm a loser, no matter what I gain in this dunya no matter what I have in this dunya No matter how much happy you know, apparently speaking, I might be in this dunya it's not going to be helpful for me because the real life is the life of the hereafter. The real problem should be that if I'm not working for the sake of gaining an ark era, saving my Ark era, getting my Janna in place, then that is a real problem. Allahu Akbar. So, you know, I would like to share with you one one powerful, powerful Hadith Subhan Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, and it is

00:12:55--> 00:13:44

narrated by mnemonic rhodiola and who the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he opened the window of reflection for us to see or perceive our lives as, as it is supposed to be Subhan Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said and listen to it when mark these words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it is translated as whoever the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said, Whoever is concerned about the year after you see if you're not being concerned of the year after that is real problem. So the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, he says, Whoever is concerned about the year after, what will happen, what is the outcome, if I am concerned about how am I supposed to gain

00:13:44--> 00:14:39

my assura then what will happen? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Allah subhanho wa Taala will place richness in his heart, Allahu Akbar, if my concern is to gain our Hara, then Allah subhana wa tada who the Creator of the heavens and the earth, a lot of Bonanza, he will place richness in my heart, Allahu Akbar, what is the richness of our happiness, contentment, sukoon satisfaction, pleasure, joy, these serenity This is what we are looking for in long lines and Subhana Allah because we adopted something else, we are not able to find the solution. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever is concerned of an era, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

will place richness in his heart and not just this. Further to this, he will bring his affairs together, meaning things will come in his control, because he has a bigger goal. Things will come in his control because he has a bigger goal Subhan Allah and the world

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

Come to him, although is reluctant of it, so Han Allah, the world will come on your feet if your concern is that our Hara

00:15:09--> 00:16:04

the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, he continues, he says, Who and whoever is concerned about the world, the engagement of this world, Allah subhanho wa Taala will place Allahu Akbar, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Allah or Buddha, Inza will place poverty between his eyes, this order his affairs, and he will get nothing from this world. But what is designed to get Allahu Akbar, my beloved brothers and sisters, this is to be treated as a real problem. We need to have a concern over the hereafter. And Allah will place richness in our heart, he will bring the world together for us, the wall will come towards us, and we go towards an era. But if we shift our focus,

00:16:04--> 00:16:50

and that is a real problem that we need to identify, if we shift our focus and concern just about the dounia. You see, don't take me wrong, my beloved brothers and sisters, we're not saying you just forsake the dunya No, you have to utilize this dunya you have to make sure that you make your art Euro in this dunya because this is the one and the only chance the problem comes when you give more importance to dunya. While we are supposed to give more importance to Alok era, that is a problem. So as long as you enjoy in this world, you make sure that you live happily, and you do everything you earn, you have a family, you you have a beautiful career and everything, then Suhana law we need

00:16:50--> 00:17:44

to ensure we need to ensure that we have to have focus that should be concerned for our health. So we need to have these problems to be treated as problems. My beloved brothers and sisters, many of us, we live our lives, we live our lives, we live our lives in such a way that we don't even identify those as problems, you know, having low Eman, we don't consider it to be a problem. You know, having missing our Salah we don't consider to be as our problem. We don't consider Subhan Allah, having detachment with the Quran to be a problem we don't consider, you know, not utilizing ourselves to be a problem. We don't even consider, you know, Subhana Allah having our workout for an

00:17:44--> 00:18:33

Acura as a problem. So, these are the real problems to be dealt with. SubhanAllah but of course, as we live in our lives, we have certain problems that we face. And this is the problem, you know, that we could list out as like for example, anxiety, you know, depression disorder, Subhanallah the problem of ego, the problem of envy, the problem that we have of you know, sometimes inferiority complex, the problem of jealousy, the problem of selfishness, the problem problem of suspicious, you know, a mindset, the problem of negativity, the problem of failures, you know, fear of failure, as we mentioned, the problem of health crisis, the problem of family, marriage, social, the you know,

00:18:33--> 00:18:57

the problem of finances, the problem of different natures. So these are the problems that we face and Subhanallah these have solution when we actually fix our real problems, to have certainty in the belief of Allah subhanaw taala and believing in Him as the ultimate problem solver looking into the origin as a solution as a lot of binaries. He says

00:18:58--> 00:19:41

about the Quran that this has, this is the Shiva Oh, Lima sudo. This is a cure solution for whatever lies in between our hearts or Subhana. Allah, we when we actually look into and zoom in, these problems have got solution and we mentioned Subhan Allah in our previous session, I'll just quickly reiterate those as well. The first thing that we need to understand is my beloved brothers and sisters, is that Allah subhanho wa Taala He made us capable of dealing with the problem and then he gave the problem people when you understand this

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

point, that you are bigger than the problem. The problem itself looks very trivial, very smaller, you know, in front of you. We have to admit that Allah subhanho data and we need to believe in it that Allah subhanaw taala he says

00:20:00--> 00:20:48

Now you can live long enough Sonny Laos, Allah will not put a burden upon you and me which we can't bear. So what is the burden the burden is a problem the burden is a challenge. The burden is an obstacle, the burden could be any difficulty of different nature Subhan Allah, so we are bigger than those we are stronger than those we are capable to deal with those. When we have this mindset, life we'll move on in sha Allah. Second thing which we mentioned, is that we need to have the belief that not everything lies in our hands. You know, we actually get over, you know, tensed many times, thinking that why I'm not able to solve this? Well, you and I do not have complete control and

00:20:48--> 00:21:11

authority and power over everything. It is Allah subhanho wa Taala who says in Allah, Allah Cooley Shane coded, so believe in the coder of Allah subhanaw taala believe that he is or coddle, you and I do not have that, that power. So why do we worry about such a thing on which we do not have capability on

00:21:12--> 00:21:52

instant we need to rely on Allah subhanaw taala and believe in his power, Allahu Akbar, when we do that, Subhan Allah, my beloved brothers and sisters, life will move on. And this is what Allah subhanaw taala reminds us that in the Quran, that sometimes you like a thing, which is not good for you, and sometimes you just like a thing, which is good for you. And Allah knows, and you do not know. So we perceive sometimes things which are good, but it's actually bad for us, we sometimes perceive things which are bad, where but that's good for you. So Allah knows, you and I, we do not know. So we rely on Allah subhanaw taala and that this will resolve lot of problems Subhanallah

00:21:52--> 00:22:02

whether it is of any nature, Allahu Akbar, my beloved brothers and sisters, one very, very important point that we need to understand and remember is the self care,

00:22:03--> 00:22:57

we need to really take care of ourselves, we need to really take care of our mindset, our intellectuality we need to really preserve our intelligence, we do not have to contaminate our heart, we make sure that we live healthy, we have to be aware that we deal with the problems in a very, very wise manner Subhanallah we cannot afford to, to take things or to take people, you know, overly, you know, pressurizing to us, we should never ever do that. That is the reason problem solving techniques. One of the powerful way is to make sure that you make up yourself, you know, make up yourself, make up your mindset, make up your heart, make up your whole character, the whole

00:22:57--> 00:23:44

personality, such that it is strong, it is something which is dealing with things in a very strong and sensible way. Why? Because your personality is backed up by the sump by someone with the ultimate ultimate problem solver. Your life is backed up with the solutions from the Quran, which is the word of Allah subhanaw taala, your, your personality is backed up, your whole character is backed up with the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So that is a reflection of a profound and powerful character, Subhana Allah and that needs to be done very well, my beloved brothers and sisters, let me take a moment and I want you to engage yourself right now and think how much amount

00:23:44--> 00:24:35

of investment that you do on yourself? How much time do you give to yourself, relax, have rest. give time to yourself, and be at peace with Allah subhanaw taala give good sense of belongingness to yourself, take care of your body, you have a responsibility, take care of your mind, you have a responsibility, take care of your heart, you have a responsibility. The problem is we do not want to take care of ourselves and we just be overwhelmed and over pressurized by the surroundings. You see in our lives, we encounter people we encounter problems, we encounter solutions, we encounter events, we encounter incidents, the way our personality should be that whenever we encounter these

00:24:35--> 00:24:59

people problems, solutions, incidents, events, we should deal with them wisely. We should deal with them sensibly. We should deal with them responsibility wise, you know, we have to have that mindset. So how does this state of well being will come into play when you take care of yourself. We grow ourselves many times and we expect solutions will come from Skype

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

It doesn't work like that the prophets in an hour I didn't even send him he said, trust in Allah, but tie your camel. So tying camel is taking care of yourself, taking care of your mind taking care of your whole life and how and develop a strong personalities. SubhanAllah also my beloved brothers and sisters, we need to ensure that problems actually help us to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala if there are no problems, we generally generally speaking, we do not tend to go towards Allah subhanaw taala. So every problem comes as an opportunity treated that way. It could be any problem, we know there are different problems that you have shared with us. We know you have different

00:25:42--> 00:26:34

challenges in life. But remember this logic of life, and that is, every problem can be treated as an opportunity. When when you think that the more the problems that comes in your life, the more that you get closer to Allah subhanaw taala what an outcome, what our beauty, what a blessing indeed, that every problem is taking me closer to Allah subhanaw taala problems will go but a lot of will resolve will stay in my life. And that is what I need. Allahu Akbar, my beloved brothers and sisters. So every problem develops us every problem gives us a better way to deal with life in a more better way. Insha Allah also we mentioned my beloved brothers and sisters don't live with

00:26:34--> 00:27:20

problems, it will increase for example, if you're not in talking terms with someone, go break that logic and talk, the more you live with prob with problems, the more it's going to increase and make it worse. So, we have to have that that you know, mindset of breaking those boundaries barriers and obstacles and go overboard and you know, get the solution out there Subhanallah delays procrastination is from shaitan any good thing when it comes as a delayed and that is definitely from shapen. So defeat, shutdown and move forward in your life. Also we mentioned that you know Subhanallah problem solving is a learnable skill, you and I can learn it, when was the last time you

00:27:20--> 00:28:12

have actually undergone a proper professional, full time course of dealing with problems from a reliable source Subhan Allah someone who gives you solutions, which are balanced and cohesion, when in line with the Quran and the Sunnah your life needs these solutions from the Quran and the Sunnah You and I have to learn about how we need to deal with the problems in our lives. Subhan Allah, we we have read and studied so many books, so many chapters, so many subjects in our lives, but the issue still remains that we are not able to deal with the life with the problems in life. Why? Because we have not actually undergone with a proper, profound course or a series or sessions such

00:28:12--> 00:28:23

as these isn't Allahu taala that can help us a way forward in our lives. always understand my beloved brothers and sisters that life is like a football game.

00:28:24--> 00:29:13

If you have challenges in front of you in in the form of players, you have a bowl and you have a goal. Every time you go inside Subhan Allah resolves your problem. So you can't imagine life without the goal. Similarly, similarly, you can't imagine, you know, a problem without solution, every problem has a solution. As I said, Subhanallah sometimes the solution lies in the time you you give some time and it will resolve inshallah, sometimes you need to be patient. Sometimes, for example, a person is physically ill, you know, he has a disease, he has to be live with that problem, but making sure that he has patients in place, making sure that he don't live his home, leave his home

00:29:13--> 00:29:59

in Allah subhanho wa Taala And third, as we said that you need to be really strong and work out and find out things study, you know, in order to resolve those problems inshallah, my beloved brothers and sisters, we also need to understand that we have to set our egos aside and take solution from anyone's many times, we tend to, you know, rely on only selective people Subhanallah sometimes, a good friend can give you a solution which can resolve your problem. Completely be as an ally to Allah with the help of Allah subhanaw taala. So you need to be a person who set ego aside and accept this solution from anyone in sha Allah obviously, among those are

00:30:00--> 00:30:57

well wishers, insha Allah, also my beloved brothers and sisters, we need to ensure that we engage ourselves in a way that can give time to ourselves. As I mentioned, the self care is the best care that you and I can adopt as a technique as a solution from the problem solving method, methodology. Insha Allah, my beloved brothers and sisters, as we said, the the more that we think about just the problems, the more you will be, you know, don't get upset and you will be destroying yourself. So, the idea, the logic, the wisdom that the Quran gives Subhana Allah, Allah is he says, with hardships, is ease so when you have problems at exactly at the same time, you have a chain of

00:30:57--> 00:31:46

solutions Subhan Allah, you have lots of blessings to count on. At the same time, you might have problems and this is the the typical way of life Subhan Allah, a lot of malaria is a clearly states under the helical Mottola hayata Leah Balu welcome, you come as a new ama that a lot of malaria has created the life and death so that he may test us to see who is in best of conduct. So this is a part and parcel of our lives problems are going to be there as I said again, and these problems have to be dealt with wisdom with strength with skill set with proper process, in line with the Quran and the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam My beloved brothers and sisters,

00:31:47--> 00:32:38

fundamentally, this is also the pointer that we should always keep in mind that these problems of life are temporary in nature, and they are very trivial if you treat it that way. But the problem if you if you actually fill a lot of air in the balloon of that problem, it's gonna you know, blow more so Subhanallah mind these words, my beloved brothers and sisters, that these problems are temporary and trivial treated that way. And you will see insha Allah solution will come on your way, as long as you feel that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the ultimate problem solver. As long as you keep visiting the Quran, learning and reflecting on the Quran, as the book of solutions inshallah, as

00:32:38--> 00:33:07

long as you reflect on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam you will definitely find solace, comfort, ease and solution from his life insha Allah and you will be able to deal with the problems Bismillah heeta Allah, my beloved brothers and sisters, I would like to you know, share the you know more pointers inshallah, when we have the question and answer sessions, until then insha Allah are here with our Anna and hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen.

00:33:10--> 00:33:55

Joseph allow her in shape for that wonderful session are humbled like was very beneficial. She, we have some questions, I'll try to couple of questions together, where a brother and sister has posed a question, which is with regards to halaal risk, how the sister has quoted with regards to eSports or whether eSports can be considered as an halaal risk. So can you repeat? Yeah, eSports eSports is generally what the sisters commended. It's a form of a sport competition using video games. So it often takes the form of organized multiplayer video game competitions, particularly between professional players individually or as teams. So probably like video games, on internet online

00:33:55--> 00:34:00

playing games which may involve money into it. So will this be halaal

00:34:01--> 00:34:59

brother photography can be more precise and closer to the topic that would be better inshallah. inshallah. inshallah. So, can we just briefly address that what how do we go for a long risk show. So now one of the biggest problems in our lives or vast majority of the people face is the problem of sustenance is a problem of a risk is the problem of Finance. And this financial stress sometimes makes a person commit suicide, this financial stress many times, you know, lead to starvation, and that leads to death. SubhanAllah every single day, there are hundreds and hundreds of people, they are dying because of the starvation SubhanAllah. Now, the whole idea of halaal risk is based on one

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

fundamental principle and that is you

00:35:04--> 00:35:59

follow derossett Allah will give you the risk many times we tend to follow the risk so much so, that that we even forget the Razzak The one who actually provides right so, you follow the rasik and he will provide you the rest inshallah, number one, number two, anything anything that you want to do, as long as it comes under the parameters of the Sharia of Islamic principles, that is halaal for you. So, it is not a defined thing as such that you just need to do this particular you know, work or this particular job or that particular business, no exceptions are given clearly for example, things which are related with interest things which are related with alcohol things which are

00:35:59--> 00:36:56

related with gaming with something of you know, clubbing in terms of, you know, competition with with racing war many times, it is it involves, you know, Haram, you know, concepts Subhana Allah. So, exceptions are given and clearly outlined, and we need to ensure that we be considerate with those exceptions, and the field is open far and wide, whatever we want to do, as long as it is essentially correct, and the way is correct, then it is absolutely permissible, and that is allowed income. And one of the ways also is to ensure that you basically work for it, you know, Subhan Allah, many times people have a very shallow understanding of reliance on Allah subhanaw taala, as I

00:36:56--> 00:37:43

mentioned during the talk, you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, trust in Allah, but tie your camel, meaning you have to have trust in Allah, but you need to work as well. You can't sit back at rest, and thinking that there is going to be, you know, a platter which is going to be given to you while you're at home, no, you need to work I need to work as long as I'm working. As long as I am believing in rasik, as long as my work is, is pure, it's halaal it's it's the way is also you know, permissible is permitted in the light of the principles of the Quran, then I am allowed to do any and everything in sha Allah. So, this is a primary deep you know, look out or

00:37:43--> 00:37:47

the view of Islamic principle when it comes to halal earning insha Allah

00:37:50--> 00:38:37

and just have a love friendship shake the another issue which has been given by one of the sister is an alcoholic problem, the sisters husband is addicted to alcohol and whenever there is a problem, he starts his alcohol consumption increases and he goes to hotels and then he comes back again when he comes back again he is normal. So, the problem itself is the root problem is alcohol. So, how to address this addiction problem Subhanallah if you actually see in the world today that we are living in, there is a substance abuse and because of addiction, certain addictions of alcohol, drugs for that matter, pornography for example, you know, gaming, which is destroying clubbing, you know,

00:38:37--> 00:39:28

racing on these sort of things which are which go under clear, you know, guideline which are not permissible in Islam. So, the first of all, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to help that brother, sisters, husband, and also everyone, every Muslim, who is engaged in this, you know, vices of intoxicating themselves, it is actually poisoning themselves, it is actually destroying and killing themselves Subhan Allah. So how do we deal with this, this is a given problem, number one, number one, we need to ensure that we make dua to Allah subhanaw taala for the solution of that problem, ask Allah in the peak time, there are peak hours where we say it's the time of acceptance of your

00:39:28--> 00:40:00

das Subhana Allah one of them is the last part of the night, where Allah subhanaw taala comes at the lowers of the heavens as it suits to His Majesty. ask Allah on those times, ask Allah subhanaw taala as a lot of theories say he says, Ask and I will grant you so the first thing is you need to pray and have that that conviction when you make do out because this is Dumas is about as well as we say, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam he said a doula who la bada. So that's the

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

One, number two, you need to make that person get into counseling.

00:40:06--> 00:40:49

counseling will help a person to understand why does he actually lead himself to that which is intoxicating. Many times people think that taking intoxicants, you know smoking for that matter, taking drugs will actually get them away or out of problems, when that's not the reality, they will still be in the problem, it's just that they get into a passive mode, but the problem is still active, even though they are passive. So, they think that they have to take relief, they have to take rest, they have to get out of this problem, and they assume that they are out of the problem, but they are not. So when do they actually recognize this when somebody sensible religious well

00:40:49--> 00:41:38

wisher, counsel, that person, that person needs definitely a counseling, because I believe whenever there is a problem, he thinks in toxic and has a solution, he has to shift his focus and believe in Allah subhanaw taala he has to find out that there are solutions which are more reliable, which are actual, you know, beneficial, not that problem, you know, Subhanallah we need to counsel these people in a way that they need to understand that while they are trying to go out or away from that problem, they are actually creating a new problem. So problem after problem. So even you know, sometimes the problem that they have because of fish, they've gone into that destruction Subhanallah

00:41:38--> 00:42:26

this problem perhaps might be lesser than the actual problem, which is the getting into, into into into intoxicants. Subhan Allah where the Allah subhanaw taala he clearly states in Surah Surah number five is number 90 fajita nimue Now Allah come to your home eschew from it, abstain yourself from it, prevent and protect yourself from these vices. One of them is intoxicants that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the Quran, so that you may be successful. So, the obstruct obstacle from success is number one, in this ayah is in toxic and so, he has to be counseled, he has to be you know, looked into, he has to sometimes be admitted into rehabilitation centers where they can go

00:42:26--> 00:42:42

into a proper mental you know, therapy and try to diagnose and help them understand that solutions are there other than you know, what you're adopting which is actually a destruction, not a solution in sha Allah,

00:42:43--> 00:43:33

just have a little handshake, May Allah help us all to get away from our vices, I mean, you know, Malala mean, shaker another, like normal problem what Francis is trying to ask is with regards to personalities, which are timid and shy. So, how can these personalities be worked upon so that they can be made assertive? The question is with regards to sister's daughter, right Subhanallah what we need to realize and understand is and have this strong belief is, it is lack of belief, true and authentic and genuine belief in Allah subhanaw taala that makes us ill confident, if we do not have strong belief in Allah, we can never be confident this is a done deal. So, the idea is a person

00:43:33--> 00:44:24

needs to be exposed to the belief factor in Allah subhanaw taala when he has that belief, he knows that nothing and no one can take control of anybody's life other than Allah subhanaw taala a person becomes strong, a person becomes confident a person will carry his personality in a better way. The problem is we get nervous, we get timid we get you know, weak because we worry about people and situation instead of worrying about Allah subhanaw taala we are concerned about people we are concerned about situation we are concerned about things, incidents, even when that's not supposed to be our way of thinking. So we need to have a life pattern. What is the life pattern is our pattern

00:44:24--> 00:44:59

of life should be based on the belief factor in Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Al Emraan surah number three, number 139 while at the Hindu 1001, Tamil, Alona in control of meaning, a lot of ERISA, he says, Don't be afraid. Don't be greedy, don't be sad and fearful. You will be successful if you are believers. So a believer is always confident. So you and I, and our children, our family, our society, the whole oma should be

00:45:00--> 00:45:52

exposed to the real belief factor in Allah subhanaw taala The more you experience the belief in Allah, the more you will feel there is a strength that comes into your life you will be more capable to deal with with such issues inshallah. So my advice is to give a very strong upbringing in terms of believing in Allah Subhana Allah, that's number one, number two, you need to expose that child to various situations, not making them isolated or not making them feel that they are you know, weak, making sure that they come out of that stigma that that mental block and it they have to be exposed to the environment, they have to be given encouragement, they have to be told about this trends,

00:45:52--> 00:46:17

their capabilities, their skills, they have to feel positive, they have to experience positive environment, they have to feel a bit they have to feel that they can do much better insha Allah and they are strong internally. So when we work on this psychologically as well, inshallah you will find there could be a better improvement a lower item with

00:46:22--> 00:46:37

just Apollo currency for that comprehensive answer. Alhamdulillah. shaker we have plenty questions on family, which we have asked our viewers to inshallah, join us next session. So we will take the last question for today's session. inshallah.

00:46:38--> 00:47:28

This question is based on black magic, where one of the sisters is trying to say that one of the family members is lost to black magic, not sure exactly how this is, but I presume it's with regards to suspicion and so how to deal with these kinds of issues shaped like these kinds of officers. Yeah. handler This is one of the ongoing problems that we actually face and deal with in our lives, is people who are jealous about us, people who are, who have envy who have this wrong or negative, you know, feelings about us, people who feel that they were not supposed to live happily, they actually get engaged into such evils and such wrong practices Subhan Allah, it is definitely lack of

00:47:28--> 00:48:23

trust in Allah subhanaw taala that makes a person inferior, and that actually lead to such evil practices Subhan Allah, may Allah protect all of us from that black magic from the in the light of Islam is real, we need to have that belief intact and Subhanallah as I mentioned, every problem has a solution. This we need to really figure it out and have that clarity in our minds. Every problem has a solution. The solution for this problem of black magic is the recipe from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu. And he said I'm certain I add certain surahs which are clearly outlined and context with black magic is number one, for example, Surah Al Fatiha, this surah is a

00:48:23--> 00:49:21

recipe in totality Subhan Allah, this is the surah which is considered as a Shiva as a solution as a cure this surah is considered as the omole Kitab Subhan Allah the mother of the books, because it comprises it contains the essence of the entire lessons of the Quran. In a nutshell Subhana Allah so when you believe strongly in Allah, and when you go take the recipe and the remedy from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, that's the way forward to deal with this problem of black magic. So sudo Fatiha, the surah baqarah surah number two and number 102 to 103. This is again a very powerful idea you need to recite Surah Baqarah surah number two and number 285

00:49:21--> 00:50:00

onwards until 286. This is also very powerful v surah. TL, you know, follow surah tunas. These are also very powerful Surah Al Baqarah surah number two and number 255 which we call it as ayatul kursi. The greatest idea of the entire Quran is so profound is so powerful, that with the usage of this with the belief in it with the stronger You know, remedy as as as a cure for all illnesses, including the black magic, I tell course is very, very powerful way of doing it and Subhanallah sometimes, we need to

00:50:00--> 00:50:46

also consult someone who is specialized in this in this field of knowledge who definitely go in line with the Quran, and the teachings of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, I'm aware of the fact that many times, if not all, but many times, we tend to think that everything is because of the black magic, everything is because of the gender issue. Everything is because of you know these things. And this leads us to suspicious attitude and behavior. And this is something which is definitely not encouraged in Islam, we need to ensure that we don't have to panic, we don't have to get nervous, we don't have to get upset we don't have to be a person who gets into depression because of these

00:50:46--> 00:51:32

issues. Rather, find out the solution as I mentioned and advised from the Quran, find out a person who is specialized, who is reliable and who is trustworthy who himself is, is is a person of taqwa insha, Allah and and deal with these kinds of problems. These are real issues. And there are definite and clear cut solutions for these issues in sha Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect all the people from these, you know, actions and also prevent those people who are already engaged in such evil practices stub their hands and make them you know, a person of guidance in sha Allah, Allah He Darla

00:51:33--> 00:52:01
