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

haven't talked to anyone in so long

00:00:16--> 00:00:20

they will never bring this data we will fail fade into the

00:00:30--> 00:00:32

30th Gen.

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

It's been almost 10 days.

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

10 days in support of me die.

00:00:41--> 00:00:43

My problems are just piling up. No.

00:00:45--> 00:00:46

I have to pay off debts.

00:00:47--> 00:00:52

And now and now begins the dreaded discussions regarding who's getting dad's things.

00:00:54--> 00:00:57

And I've never ever heard a story where this part of life goes smoothly.

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

What about me, though? What can I say?

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

I've been trying. I have.

00:01:05--> 00:01:12

I've been trying to rebuild myself by keeping on top of my prayers. I agreed in the Quran, making the Arab

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

surely

00:01:17--> 00:01:29

I know that's not their purpose. But it will be nice to feel a little scientific at all, like anything to show that things are going to be okay. And that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

00:01:30--> 00:01:31

I remember a long time ago,

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

in a lecture,

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

the speaker said that

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

just because you're suffering in this world,

00:01:41--> 00:01:43

doesn't mean you're being punished.

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

I'm losing money.

00:01:48--> 00:01:52

I have no hope. I have to deal with difficult people.

00:01:53--> 00:01:56

I'm struggling to get back to normal life.

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

And I'm struggling to get my life back.

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

How is this not a punishment?

00:02:06--> 00:02:09

Understandable? Brother, I do my you feel like that.

00:02:10--> 00:02:22

When any wound is still raw, it's so easy to slip into a mindset that says, How could this not be a punishment? And like you said, it's a very paralyzing thought.

00:02:23--> 00:02:26

But bro, I promise you, it's not as black and white as

00:02:27--> 00:02:38

and punishment is not always the default case. You know what the good news is? That's not even my opinion. That's not even the opinion of the speaker whom you heard speaking at that lecture.

00:02:39--> 00:02:46

Those are the words of a person whom I know you hold dear man who was connected to the heavens through revelation.

00:02:47--> 00:03:19

The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was once asked explicitly, leaving no room for doubt, a unity I shall do by that and who are those who are tested the most? Who are they? What did he say? A disbeliever or an alcoholic or a hypocrite? He said NBR the profits from an Anthony Phil Anderson, then those who must resemble them, then those who resemble them demote then he said you've done a Raju Allah has been any fan can if you didn't he Salana Eastern del Bella, a person is tested.

00:03:21--> 00:03:46

According to his religious commitment, if his religion is strong, the test increases. When can I fit in here call it Allah, Allah Allah has been easy, but if the religion is fragile, he will be tested accordingly. What is the fruit of all of this he goes on to conclude and says, thermal Jabra l Bella will have the EMG and an RB ma leaking company. And a person will continue to be tested

00:03:47--> 00:03:51

until he ends up walking on the earth carrying notes into his name.

00:03:52--> 00:03:55

Never forget the ordeals of Prophet Musa are

00:03:57--> 00:04:05

the things that he went through in the making of him as a prophet. He had no idea of the wisdoms behind the back to back sufferings that he was enduring.

00:04:06--> 00:04:19

For starters, Adam he, Musa was born with a death warrant to his name, because in the law of the pharaoh of Egypt, every male baby deserved execution and was separated from the arms of his mother.

00:04:20--> 00:04:24

And the mother of Musa felt compelled to put him inside of a box, as you know,

00:04:25--> 00:04:32

to lower him in the river Nile, which would then find its way to the palace of the Pharaoh himself.

00:04:33--> 00:04:51

Later on Prophet Musa would accidentally claim the life of a man would flee Egypt, in fear because he was now informed in this for the second time in his life that his life was at risk. Imagine imagine like behind him, authorities that want Him dead ahead of him, a completely bleak and unknown future.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

doesn't even stop there, though does it? Musa would experience tremendous fatigue starvation as he fled Egypt

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

He would work as a laborer, for 10 straight years after having come out from the palace of a king, that's not easy.

00:05:09--> 00:05:19

But then afterwards he would set off with his wife walking towards a completely unknown future. And up until his very first conversation with Allah Musa had no idea

00:05:20--> 00:05:33

why all of this was happening to him. But now as he hears Allah speaking to him, for the first time, it all makes sense as he hears Allah saying to him was going to clean up see, I have prepared you for myself.

00:05:34--> 00:05:46

Assume the best of Allah, brother Adam, and I hope that he is also preparing you for himself. And Allah will be as you expect to be him. Adam, bro, allow me to share with you a very simple formula.

00:05:47--> 00:06:30

If you're testing circumstance has pushed you, God forbid further away from Allah and Islam, then I agree with you got to worry. I may be in the thick of a punishment you may say. If however, the trial has brought you closer to Allah, and you're a noticeably better person closer to your religion, then and that is the case with yourself see it as a mighty sign insha Allah of your nearness to Allah subhanaw taala and a sign of your growth as a Muslim brothers and sisters during his life our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was exposed to every possible dimension of tribulation. Do you know why that is? Because Allah subhanaw taala wants to give him from every

00:06:30--> 00:06:52

dimension of happiness in the hereafter. He himself once said, in a moment jazzy, Amin Bala. The mightiness of a reward is directly connected to the mightiness of a test. And then he said we're in Allah either had the Coleman epithelia and whenever Allah loves a people, he tests that

00:06:54--> 00:07:04

feminine Robbia via Horiba woman Sofia Coppola, who soaked so whoever is content will be given contentment and whoever is displeased will earn displeasure. Are you suffering?

00:07:06--> 00:07:25

Are you wondering what path you've been put on? Are you wondering who you are in the eyes of Allah in the middle of your trial? I say to you as the predecessor as they say him and we'll see maybe che in a minute Bella Faqad Sunni can be hit or you could NBR whoever is afflicted with a trial has been placed upon the path of the prophets.

00:07:39--> 00:08:00
