00:04:02--> 00:04:05

and you can see the promises that you receive.

00:04:06--> 00:04:17

When you are happy with all of that and satisfied. What do you say this after the event? Whether you see it in the morning when you wake up after your ledger, or you generally say it

00:04:18--> 00:04:21

as part of your Vicar as part of your

00:04:23--> 00:04:23

return.

00:04:25--> 00:04:30

To be happy and fully content with Allah azza wa jal and that is the first one.

00:04:31--> 00:04:35

What is that mean to have read all about Allah azza wa jal.

00:04:37--> 00:04:44

We're familiar with the fact that we want a lot to be happy with us. And Allah mentioned in the Quran radi Allahu

00:04:46--> 00:04:47

Allah is happy with them.

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

But Allah also says what I'll do, I'm who and they are happy with him and they are satisfied with him. So Allah is happy and satisfied with them. The believers

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

The prophets in their followers allies happy with them, but they're also happy with Allah as origin.

00:05:07--> 00:05:13

And it means to be happy with Allah as I've been happy with Allah as an honor.

00:05:14--> 00:05:25

To have to be happy with Allah as an ILA, it means that I'm satisfied with him. When I rely upon him, I don't need to rely upon anybody else.

00:05:26--> 00:06:03

When I trust him, I trust him more than I trust anybody else. When I asked him I don't feel the need, or the urgency to ask anybody else unsatisfied with him. As an ILA. I'm satisfied with his liberta when I worship him, I don't need to worship anyone or anything else because I get everything that I want from him. subhanho wa Taala he leaves no me No need of mine unmet. Some satisfied with his a bother. I don't desire people's praise. I don't desire

00:06:04--> 00:06:14

favors from them, because I understand. The best of praise is the praise of Allah. And the best of assistance is the assistance of Allah.

00:06:15--> 00:06:37

So when I worship Allah azza wa jal, I worship Him alone, I'm satisfied with him and happy with him as best as we re in his decrees, subhanho wa Taala, whatever he gives whatever he denies, whatever way he sets my life, even if it goes against my own plans and will. I'm also happy

00:06:39--> 00:06:44

with the deal, the decree the preferences of Allah subhana wa Taala.

00:06:45--> 00:07:08

And of course, it is easy to say this when things are going our way. When Allah has given us exactly what we want and what makes us happy, it is easy to be happy with Allah azza wa jal, it is easy then to say Alhamdulillah because everything is great in our lives, we are happy, but when things go opposite, our intent.

00:07:10--> 00:07:23

When Allah chooses something, unlike, or contrary to our choices, that is the moment with happiness with Allah azza wa jal clearly manifests itself

00:07:25--> 00:07:33

rasulillah lives of the law do sell themselves in either messages or email even better is the great reward is what a great test

00:07:36--> 00:07:48

comes when, when there is a great test. When the law either have bajo Manila home, if Allah loves a people, he tests them, meaning he afflicts them.

00:07:49--> 00:08:03

For mineralia Fela, horiba woman Sahaja fellow so the one who's happy and satisfied, will receive happiness and satisfaction and the one who is displeased will will receive displeasure.

00:08:06--> 00:08:07

Of course, when things

00:08:09--> 00:08:37

when bad things happen to me and you, of course, they are going to distress us, of course, they're going to bring us some pain. Of course, they're going to bring us this satisfaction. But here, once the believer knows, and he remembers and ponders the fact that this is a last choice, this is something that Allah wants and though it is not my

00:08:38--> 00:09:23

it is not my first choice, but I understand that Alice choice is better than mine, I understand that there is wisdom behind it that may escape my understanding. So I'm happy and content with Alice choice more than my own choice. Because I you know, it will bring me greater good than anything that I could have chosen myself. When the believer receives this information, this affliction with that certainty, then you can start being happy with whatever other Allah xeljanz sends your way. Whatever Allah xeljanz sends your way you're naturally happy when you are healthy. But if you become sick, and it's painful to be sick, but you remember that this is better for you, you could be happy for

00:09:24--> 00:09:26

the choice that Allah had made for you.

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

Because either way, you're going to get sick.

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

Either way, you're going to lose money. Either way, you're going to lose loved ones, how are you going to deal with all of that? So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying that if you're happy with the laws decrees, you'll receive happiness fella who return you'll have the return of Allah azza wa jal when he looks at you and he says, he's happy with my choice. Happy though he's going through difficulty. He's happy with my choice. Of course.

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

There is a room for you to change reality to change what's happening to you change it. But there are many instances where we cannot change. somebody dies, there's just just you lose some money, you lose a loved one.

00:10:16--> 00:10:37

You just simply cannot do anything about it. If you're going to be unhappy, and if you're going to be grumpy, if you're going to be dissatisfied, you're going to receive the dis dissatisfaction from Allah azza wa jal to begin with, and then your own life will be unhappy life. Because you're not happy no matter what happens. You can't

00:10:38--> 00:10:39

because bad things will happen.

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

But if you receive it with a good spirit, knowing that allas compensation is waiting for you, that allows pleasure is waiting for you that this particular thing is soon going to be over. And what will what you will receive a reward from Allah then it is easy to tolerate and be patient and in fact, be happy with this. actually be happy with it. Because you know, that Allah only brings you the best

00:11:08--> 00:11:16

someone was asked is how do I know? If Allah is happy with me? Okay, fat, Mo encanta la hora de and

00:11:17--> 00:11:21

he says, Look, if you are happy with Allah,

00:11:23--> 00:12:05

Allah Lord, either. Antonia hiroya it says, How do I know if I was happy with me says are you happy with Allah, if you are happy with a law, that is a sign that allies happy with you. But if you are unhappy with Allah azzawajal every time something bad happens, you blame him, you curse your life, you curse your luck, you can deal with it, then that is a sign that you don't know Allah, you don't trust him Chapin or to Allah, and you're not happy with his decrees. Again, it doesn't mean that you're going to receive loss as you receive gain. You receive birth as you receive death. It's not it doesn't mean that but it means that when you receive it, you have the man to deal with it, and

00:12:05--> 00:12:19

eventually overcome it and be happy with Allah azza wa jal. This is what it means. And when that happens, when you're happy with Allah azza wa jal, it will have several fruits that must follow.

00:12:20--> 00:12:54

One of these routes is that you're not going to care about what people say or do. You only gonna care about your relationship with Allah azza wa jal and all other people become secondary, no one can hurt you. Because you know that all power belongs to Allah azza wa jal, once somebody said to another, you said, I'm going to make you sad, I'm going to hurt you. He said, How can you hurt me? Can you make me or forced me to leave Islam? He says, No. He says, then you cannot hurt me. Because whatever you try to do, if you happen to be successful, I'll know that Allah allowed it.

00:12:56--> 00:13:00

And if Allah allows it, I know that he allows it for a good reason you can't hurt me.

00:13:02--> 00:13:07

Just a we are in the whole holiday, meaning you can reach such a degree where you do not really care.

00:13:08--> 00:13:18

If I wake up tomorrow, will I be sick or healthy? Will I be rich or poor? Because you know that all of this no matter what's going to happen.

00:13:20--> 00:13:39

And of course, Before we continue, you take your precautions. Of course, you try to preserve your health, you try to preserve your wealth. But if something goes, despite your best efforts, and you wake up tomorrow, you don't care about it, whether you're rich or poor, or healthy or sick, because all of them are by Allah's decree.

00:13:40--> 00:13:58

So that leaves you with a great satisfaction inside, nothing bad is ever going to happen because Allah is choosing it. So nothing bad can happen. And if Allah chooses it, it must be good. And if Allah chooses what is good, Allah will assist you, through it, until you

00:14:00--> 00:14:37

until you endure all of it. This is what happened is with Allah zildjian means one of its roots is not going to quarrel with people as much. You're not going to disagree with people as much. Because you know that whatever they do, whatever they do, even when they try to hurt you, and they could be at fault for it. But if they try to hurt you, eventually Allah azzawajal allowed it if you want to change that reality. Don't seek vengeance. You can punish if you wish, with justice, but don't seek vengeance, but ask Allah Zoda to change it.

00:14:38--> 00:14:49

Because your beef is not with this person or that person. Your problem is with your own sense, that bring on that affliction. repent to Allah azza wa jal and no one can hurt you.

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

It also will bring on the fruit of less reliance upon people. If you're satisfied with it,

00:15:00--> 00:15:24

As origin and if you need something, you bring your need to him. I don't need to ask so and so for assistance or not, not as much or so and so for money or at least not as much because I bring my needs to Allah zildjian Allah is sufficient for me. Your relationship with Allah is so solid that everybody else as we said is secondary. Our full authority Heather was very welcome.

hamdulillah European alameen Hamza and Kathie Lee van Mubarak and Fie. He also lives in Lima Nora so Lee Li sallallahu alayhi

00:15:58--> 00:15:58

wa sallam

00:15:59--> 00:16:18

to be happy and satisfied with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a prophet and messenger as an ABN as a Rasul means that he believed that he is a prophet and a messenger. And if you believe that he's a prophet of the messenger, carrying the words of Allah azzawajal that means that whatever he is saying is true.

00:16:20--> 00:17:03

It means that what he is doing is true. It means that he is the best model, the best educator, the best teacher, it means that when he says something, you will follow it because you know that he's bringing it from Allah subhana wa Taala. He means that no one else is going to impress you above Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It means if somebody offers another model and under the way other than his way, and he is Salatu was Sam, you're not going to rush to embrace that way but you rush to embrace what the Messenger of Allah Zoda is telling you what to do how to do Allah as urgent says about his prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If you obey Him, you will be guided. That's not

00:17:03--> 00:17:07

for anybody else except for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:17:09--> 00:17:16

Find out what do you mean una Hata you hockey macafee Masha rabina, whom Allah azza wa jal says, He swore by

00:17:58--> 00:18:30

True Amen. to happiness with him as a prophet. True love for him, requires that you say, I'll follow what you say, but not somebody else. I'll follow what you say. But not much not my However, my desire my emotions or my mind is saying, it means to follow his sin. And he is Salatu was sit down in the big things and then the small things, to try to be as much as him as possible to hope that when you die, you get to meet him

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

and you will get to be with him in general.

00:18:36--> 00:18:51

So be satisfied with that. You have to be satisfied with him in this life. And the last part, to be happy and satisfied with Islam as a religion This is part of being happy with Allah azza wa jal

00:18:52--> 00:18:58

if I'm happy with his decrees, meaning whatever he made possible or not possible in this life for me.

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

I should also be happy with His revelation and with his Shetty as well.

00:19:06--> 00:19:07

If he tells me that this is Halloween,

00:19:09--> 00:19:16

then I do it. If he tells me that this is haram then I know that it is disasterous if I do this,

00:19:17--> 00:19:36

if he tells me about what died but benefits me in Islam, I believe it. Allah says what are the two lagoon Islam Medina Allah says about this Islam. I'm happy with this Islam unsatisfied with it. for you as a religion, Allah is happy with it, but you're unhappy.

00:19:37--> 00:19:49

Allah satisfied with it, but you're unsatisfied. Allah believes it to be complete, but you believe it to be incomplete. How could you be happy with Allah and His Messenger if you're not happy with His revelation,

00:19:51--> 00:20:00

to be happy with the origin as a source of happiness and guidance, to be happy with the Koran as a way of treating others

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

physical and spiritual illnesses, to be happy with his Shetty

00:20:06--> 00:20:47

in organizing our lives individually and communally to be happy with what he has revealed, believing that if I open almost half, if I open a book in the sun, if I know what his journey is, I know what guidance is. I don't oppose this with my own mind. If our mind is rebellious, I don't oppose this with my own emotions and preferences. I don't oppose this with any particular fad or trend in society. I don't oppose this with peer pressure. I don't oppose this with my with my my family is telling me I don't oppose it with anything else because I know it is supreme. If I'm happy with it, then I will follow it.

00:20:49--> 00:21:33

So when we go back and say it'll lead to be a hero but Islam Idina will be Mohammed in Libya, we have to think about it and we have to mean it. I'm really happy. I'm really satisfied. And he says so the lohani he was sending them the Ottoman Imani Monrovia Villa here Ababa Islami, Dena Mohammed in Libya, it says, you have the taste of a man, you will find the taste of a man, if you are happy with Allah as your rub, and with Mohammed as your Prophet, and with Islam as your religion. So let's step back a little bit and look at it and consider whether we are happy with them or not. Because the way to get the happiness of Allah is to be happy with all of them. We can take small steps that

00:21:33--> 00:22:11

will bring us closer to Allah, to his religion and to the Son of his prophet, we get we can learn more about it. And the more that you will learn about it, the more that you will be impressed and happy and satisfied. We can start practicing it little by little, and the more that you practice, the more that you will be happy because you're going to see the fruits of your practice, you're going to see the game the more and more you will be happy with Allah and His Prophet and his book, and you're going to say to yourself, I don't need anything else. I love Allah azzawajal I love his prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and I'm so fortunate to be a Muslim are a choice, I will continue

00:22:11--> 00:22:56
