All praise is due to Allah. May Allah Peace and blessings beyond the last messenger of Allah.

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

attaining inner peace,

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

in times of trial

00:00:49--> 00:00:52

speaks about or addresses

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


00:00:55--> 00:00:57

we as individuals,

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

as a community

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

can achieve the equilibrium

00:01:06--> 00:01:07

the balance

00:01:09--> 00:01:15

which distinguishes the believers from the disbelievers.

00:01:16--> 00:01:21

Allah describes us, as Martin was at

00:01:22--> 00:01:25

the middle nation,

00:01:26--> 00:01:29

the nation that has the balance,

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

that is,

00:01:33--> 00:01:37

in harmony with a laws creation.

00:01:40--> 00:01:41

Inner Peace

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

is an expression of this harmony.

00:01:48--> 00:01:54

And there is a particular Hadith from Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.

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

in which

00:01:58--> 00:02:00

he laid for us

00:02:01--> 00:02:05

the foundation for the equilibrium.

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

The foundation for the equilibrium

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

was exemplified

00:02:18--> 00:02:18


00:02:20--> 00:02:21


00:02:22--> 00:02:24

Islamic Maxim

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

When, when,

00:02:28--> 00:02:30

the when when Maxim

00:02:31--> 00:02:35

was expressed by Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

in a hadith

00:02:39--> 00:02:42

narrated by sohaib even

00:02:44--> 00:02:44


00:02:47--> 00:02:54

in which the province wa salam said Agia Burnley amaryl movement in Amara who could know who, la higher

00:02:56--> 00:02:59

the affair of the believer is amazing.

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

The whole of his life has beneficial

00:03:04--> 00:03:07

Walesa, luckily I had in a lateral movement

00:03:09--> 00:03:13

and that is only in the case of the believer

00:03:15--> 00:03:19

in Sabah to Surah Shakur, Africana highroller.

00:03:20--> 00:03:38

When good times come to him, he is thankful and it is good for him. We're in a sorbet who the raw sabara for Canna higher Allah and when bad times befall him, he is patient, and it is good for him.

00:03:42--> 00:03:45

This is the win win Maxim

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

as divinely revealed,

00:03:53--> 00:04:11

it addresses to essential elements in human life necessary to achieve the harmony, harmony within the individual harmony within the family.

00:04:14--> 00:04:20

balance within the community within the nations.

00:04:23--> 00:04:29

The two key elements are gratitude and patience,

00:04:30--> 00:04:37

gratitude and patience. When good times come to the believers

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

they are thankful

00:04:42--> 00:04:44

and as such they're rewarded

00:04:46--> 00:04:52

and when bad times befall them, when trials before them. They are patient

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

and they are rewarded.

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


00:05:03--> 00:05:08

is praised in the Quran and in the Sunnah

00:05:09--> 00:05:12

in many verses and in many hadiths

00:05:14--> 00:05:15

just to mention

00:05:17--> 00:05:19

one from each,

00:05:20--> 00:05:22

from the Quran in surah Ibrahim

00:05:24--> 00:05:25

verse seven,

00:05:26--> 00:05:33

like in Chicago to La zedan nakum if you give thanks, I will give you more.

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

The more thanks you give,

00:05:38--> 00:05:39

the more you get.

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

And from the prophet SAW Selim,

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

he said,

00:05:47--> 00:05:58

any servant who is blessed by Allah and says Alhamdulillah that is thanks to Allah will be given better than what is just received.

00:05:59--> 00:06:09

My am Allahu Allah avidin near Martin for call Alhamdulillah Ella cannon lady Otto who asked Allah Bhima have

00:06:11--> 00:06:20

any servant who is blessed by Allah and says Alhamdulillah will be given better than what he has just received.

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

On the other hand,

00:06:25--> 00:06:29

the opposite of gratitude, in gratitude

00:06:30--> 00:06:31


00:06:32--> 00:06:35

disgraced in the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:06:36--> 00:06:41

There are many texts, which speak against it, which warn against it.

00:06:43--> 00:06:49

In the Quran, that in gratitude is even referred to uncover

00:06:50--> 00:06:51


00:06:54--> 00:06:56

A form of kafir, kafir Namah

00:06:58--> 00:07:31

Allah says in the same chapter that we looked at Abraham, verse seven, well, I encourage them in other vilasa did. But if you disbelieve, indeed my punishment will be severe. If you give thanks, I will give you more. And if you don't give thanks that is, if you disbelieve, you don't recognize what I've given you. Then my punishment will be severe.

00:07:33--> 00:07:43

And from the Sunnah, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam said, in a hadith narrated incinerated me the authentically

00:07:45--> 00:07:48

man lamea, scoring NASS lamea escuela

00:07:50--> 00:07:53

whoever does not thank people

00:07:54--> 00:07:56

does not thank Allah.

00:07:58--> 00:08:02

One who doesn't thank people does not think a lot

00:08:04--> 00:08:05

cannot think a lot.

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


00:08:09--> 00:08:12

much of what is given us is given through people.

00:08:14--> 00:08:15

A law chooses people

00:08:16--> 00:08:26

as the means by which his mercy, His grace, his beneficence is bestowed on us.

00:08:27--> 00:08:33

So by not thanking those people, were in fact, not thanking a lot.

00:08:34--> 00:08:59

Though some people will say I should really law thanks belongs to Allah. These people are only means. However, the prophet SAW Selim told us we must thank those people to Yes, we have to believe ultimately it's coming from our last man to Allah. But we must stand people when Allah gives us things through them, because that is a means of encouraging them

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

to continue to do good.

00:09:05--> 00:09:15

Allah will give us whether we find chemo we don't thank him. Human beings will give us if we thank them, but if we don't thank them, they won't give us

00:09:16--> 00:09:22

that's the nature of human beings. So in order to encourage them to continue to do good,

00:09:24--> 00:09:27

we are obliged to thank them.

00:09:29--> 00:09:32

On the other hand, patience

00:09:33--> 00:09:39

also has a number of supporting texts in the Quran and the Sunnah, praising it.

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

We can find into Al Baqarah verse 155. will enable and accomplish a man on how he will jewelry will not consume mineral and while he will amphis was Murat wabasha sabihin and certainly I will test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth

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

lives and fruit, but give glad tidings to the patient. Give glad tidings to the patient, glad tidings of what? Of paradise

00:10:15--> 00:10:23

and from the Sunnah, Prophet Mohammed Al Salam had said in a Hadith, which is narrated in Sahih al Bukhari

00:10:26--> 00:10:47

my or it I hadn't a thought and a thought on hi Ron. I'm in a Sabra. No one has been given a gift better or vaster than patience. No one has been given a gift better or vaster than patience.
