00:00:10--> 00:00:12

haven't talked to anyone in so long.

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

They will never pray that

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

we will fail fade into the

00:00:30--> 00:00:31

27th Gen.

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

A lot can happen in a week,

00:00:36--> 00:00:58

people can lose that that they can start to worry about how they go to sit exams, pay for bills. And to top it all off. Once you finally think that things are starting to heal, starting to get better. A doctor who has no understanding of your situation decides to tell you what's best for you. And what's best for me, apparently, is to take some time off school.

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

My old depression that's why.

00:01:05--> 00:01:16

I mean, even if mild depression, you either have it or you don't. And apparently I need to clear my head. So I can be effective in my studies.

00:01:20--> 00:01:23

He gave me some medication, right?

00:01:24--> 00:01:30

What's that supposed to do? It it's supposed to cure me make me feel better.

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

Why instead is doing the total opposite.

00:01:38--> 00:01:41

Staying at home, it's not what I need right now.

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

It only brings back memories of of that,

00:01:46--> 00:01:47

at least when I was studying,

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

it will help to take my mind off.

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

Even it will just fall into why.

00:01:56--> 00:01:57

And now that I'm at home mom,

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

I see my family.

00:02:03--> 00:02:06

And in other circumstances, of course, I would love to see them more.

00:02:08--> 00:02:13

But not now. Not following the death of that. Wherever we one is glum, everyone is down.

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

It's only getting me down as well.

00:02:19--> 00:02:42

No doubt out of room you need time to clear your head. No doubt. You want to keep your mind off things and keep yourself busy. But just remember one thing please. Keeping yourself busy is about two things, keeping your body busy with important doings. Agreed. But more importantly, keeping your mind busy with the most useful of thoughts.

00:02:43--> 00:02:49

Because if your mind isn't positioned correctly during your struggle, your body will struggle as well. Right.

00:02:51--> 00:03:07

So with that allow me to share with you just one thought that gives so much perspective. Adam, realize that your difficult circumstance is in fact a medicine that Allah has so generously sent in your direction.

00:03:08--> 00:03:24

And you know that bitterness is the nature of most medicine so embrace it as much as you can and keep yourself far from showing displeasure or Allah or impatience because the healing properties of medicine will be reduced. Can I elaborate

00:03:25--> 00:03:49

your email with no claim he wants said that fanola And the hosel panel you there we will be doing until me honey olive de la de la paga Wagga Watteau. He said that if it wasn't for the fact that Allah remedies His servants with the medicines of trials and tests, they would end up transgressing or pressing and becoming haughty.

00:03:51--> 00:04:09

And then he says Wallah, who either rather be RBD he hired on Sarkar who there was a minute if Tiller II will empty honey alcohol. And whenever Allah was good for a person, he will give him a drink of medicine, in the form of tests, and trials.

00:04:10--> 00:04:56

Yes, step three OB he means Lika he says, causing the person to vomit out dangerous illnesses that were lurking inside of him. Had they either had that when a poor who was suffer who had a holy earth show of immorality be dunya Why would he have to hold until this person is shaped through this medicine and cleansed and purified and therefore qualifying him for the highest grade in this world? And that is the true worship of Allah. We're out of the ether why will ask you? Well, who will you have to work with who and qualifying this person is well for the highest rewards in the hereafter? the seeing of Allah and being married.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

I'm sure you will agree with me one

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

I say that those who offer you medicine today, they're usually people who want the best for you. Right? And similarly, the fact that Allah has sent these medicinal trials your way ticket as an amazing sign that he wants you to grow.

00:05:15--> 00:05:33

He wants to develop you. He wants what is best for you did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say either or Allah who be IBD in Hira? Isagen Allah Who batarfi Dunya whenever Allah wants to good for a person, what will he do for him? He will hurry for him his punishment in this world

00:05:35--> 00:05:45

will either around Allah who will be somebody he shut off, I'm sick and who will be them be he had their UEFI here monthly or however what Allah wants evil for a person? What would Allah do?

00:05:46--> 00:05:54

Allah will withhold the punishment from him in the life of this world so that he pays the full price for his sins on the day on judgment.

00:05:57--> 00:06:23

Adam, Allah subhanho wa Taala works in mysterious ways. He may withhold metals from you in order to give you he may test you in order to give you wellbeing, he may cause you to fall ill in order to cure you. He may give death in order to give life to keep yourself at the doorstep of contentment. And see your trial through this lens. It's a medicine that I am in desperate need of

00:06:25--> 00:06:36

and it will be a cause of my renewal. Of course from my growth. Brothers and sisters, how often has it happened when an arrogant person prideful, craic sinner

00:06:37--> 00:06:52

is stopped in his tracks through a disaster that befalls him, forcing him into humility, transforming him into an amazing individual of punctual Salah attachment to the Quran, a woman of Doha, a woman of lifelong righteousness,

00:06:53--> 00:06:57

I say to Adam, as I say to you, rest assured,

00:06:58--> 00:07:07

because the medicine of calamities will read you have illnesses that you may not be able to see. But they are illnesses that need to go before you are lowered into the grave

00:07:08--> 00:07:14

before you meet Allah. So thank Allah for the medicine don't waste the opportunity.

00:07:28--> 00:07:49
