Brothers and sisters,

00:00:11--> 00:00:14

I remind you as I remind myself,

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

to fear Allah

00:00:19--> 00:00:21


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

the fear of Allah taqwa Allah

00:00:26--> 00:00:27


00:00:28--> 00:00:31

the essence of faith.

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

Where there is no taqwa

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

there really is no faith.

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


00:00:44--> 00:00:48

let us keep that always in mind,

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

in our understanding

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

of Islam

00:00:55--> 00:00:56

in our

00:00:57--> 00:00:58


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

working, playing,

00:01:04--> 00:01:10

let us keep taqwa law, foremost in our mind

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

where that consciousness

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

is present.

00:01:23--> 00:01:24

It is impossible

00:01:27--> 00:01:27

for us

00:01:29--> 00:01:30

to be depressed.

00:01:32--> 00:01:33


00:01:36--> 00:01:38

is the biggest killer

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

in this world

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

more than cancer,

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

heart disease,

00:01:52--> 00:01:53

heart attacks,

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


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

or any of the plagues,

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


00:02:07--> 00:02:10

strikes all over the world.

00:02:13--> 00:02:16

And many lives are lost as a result of it.

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

But the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

when he was in the cave,

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

on the way to Medina,

00:02:31--> 00:02:32

with Abu Bakar

00:02:34--> 00:02:37

hiding out from the kurush

00:02:40--> 00:02:47

who had followed them seeking to kill Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.

00:02:50--> 00:02:55

And when it seemed as if they were about to be found,

00:02:58--> 00:02:59

and the story

00:03:02--> 00:03:04

most of us have heard as children.

00:03:07--> 00:03:12

A spider made a web over the entrance of the cave.

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

This is not true.

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

It's a fairy tale.

00:03:22--> 00:03:26

No spider made any web over the engines.

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

The Quraysh came close.

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

So close.

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

That abubaker

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

became afraid

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

became Southern,

00:03:46--> 00:03:48

Southern to the point

00:03:49--> 00:03:52

that he felt they were going to be caught.

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


00:03:56--> 00:04:01

that took him to a level of depression

00:04:03--> 00:04:12

that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam pulled him out of saying to him Latin, in Allah hamana

00:04:13--> 00:04:16

do not become depressed

00:04:17--> 00:04:19

because a law is with us.

00:04:24--> 00:04:28

Now this statement has been

00:04:29--> 00:04:33

mistranslated as, don't be sad.

00:04:35--> 00:04:40

And even a well known book was written by Shanghai the coordinate

00:04:41--> 00:04:45

with that translation in English, don't be sad.

00:04:48--> 00:04:53

But reality is that human beings will be sad.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

Who is not sad? At some point in his life wasn't Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam sadly

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

His son Ibrahim died. Of course, he was sad.

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

So the issue is not about being sad or not being sad.

00:05:10--> 00:05:10

We are not

00:05:11--> 00:05:13

going on the

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

banner of be happy.

00:05:19--> 00:05:25

You know, because that is the corollary, that's the counter. If you're not going to be sad, then you should be happy.

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

And there is even a song about that some years back, be happy. And everybody loved this song be happy.

00:05:34--> 00:05:40

Sounds so nice, be happy. But reality is you can't be happy all the time.

00:05:41--> 00:05:47

People try drugs, music, all kinds of things to be happy. It lasts for a little while and it goes.

00:05:49--> 00:05:53

That's not what our life is supposed to be about. Trying to be happy.

00:05:56--> 00:05:59

Our lives should be about pleasing Allah.

00:06:02--> 00:06:12

Whether in happiness, or in sadness, because our lives will be between happiness and sadness, we cannot escape it.

00:06:13--> 00:06:14

There is no escape.

00:06:15--> 00:06:16


00:06:17--> 00:06:26

we don't allow that sadness to reach the point of depression. That is the point.

00:06:29--> 00:06:38

We don't allow sadness to reach the point where we become depressed where everything around us is sad.

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

We're sad about everything.

00:06:42--> 00:06:44

We cannot see any good anywhere.

00:06:46--> 00:06:47

That is the state

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

that the believers should avoid.

00:06:52--> 00:06:53

And it is avoidable.

00:06:55--> 00:07:01

And its source is from shaitaan. In fact, there's a verse in the Quran

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

and which

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

Allah says

00:07:06--> 00:07:09

in the manager, Amina shape on

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

layout zanella Dena amanu

00:07:14--> 00:07:15


00:07:16--> 00:07:20

the secret meetings and considerations

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

are from Satan.

00:07:25--> 00:07:26

In order

00:07:27--> 00:07:30

to make the believers depressed

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

it's from shape on

00:07:36--> 00:07:38

that state of depression where

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

one cannot see any good

00:07:43--> 00:07:44

wherever have been blinded,

00:07:46--> 00:07:47

blinded by shavon

00:07:50--> 00:07:51

and then

00:07:52--> 00:07:55

that takes us to a point where

00:07:57--> 00:08:02

so many people kill themselves, kill others around them

00:08:03--> 00:08:04


00:08:05--> 00:08:15

That is an evil state. And that because of that Prophet Mohammed Salim used to make the Dalai Lama India also be criminal, harm me, one has

00:08:17--> 00:08:21

all I seek refuge in You from worry

00:08:23--> 00:08:24

and depression.

00:08:26--> 00:08:28

masala used to frequently make this

00:08:30--> 00:08:31

we should do the same.

00:08:33--> 00:08:51

When we're feeling down, we start to go on that slide. Remember that de la Allahumma inni will be coming at me. While it's longer than that. There's other things that we seek reference from but that part is enough. You just focus on that.

00:08:54--> 00:08:57

To protect us from falling into that state.

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


00:09:02--> 00:09:03

a last month Allah

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

and His mercy

00:09:08--> 00:09:11

had Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam

00:09:14--> 00:09:17

point us to a verse in the Quran

00:09:19--> 00:09:21

which is a further reminder for us

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

to be aware

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

of depression.

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

This verse refers to a time

00:09:33--> 00:09:36

in the life of Prophet Yunus.

00:09:37--> 00:09:38

The noon

00:09:40--> 00:09:45

who had been sent to a people it is said that it was in Nineveh

00:09:46--> 00:09:47

in Iraq

00:09:51--> 00:09:58

and the people rejected his message as is the Sunnah

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

Have all of the profits, that when they brought the messages to their people, they rejected them is nothing new.

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


00:10:11--> 00:10:13

prophet Yunus

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


00:10:16--> 00:10:20

so saddened by it, Kathy gave up hope

00:10:22--> 00:10:23

and his people

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

and then

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

he abandoned them

00:10:31--> 00:10:32

on what off

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

and then abandoning them.

00:10:38--> 00:10:44

He was abandoning a responsibility which our law had placed on his shoulders.

00:10:46--> 00:10:56

So his sadness at his people's on willingness to accept the message from Allah Allah

00:10:57--> 00:10:59

sent him to that point.

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

So Allah

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

took him back.

00:11:06--> 00:11:08

He guided his people

00:11:09--> 00:11:10

in his absence.

00:11:11--> 00:11:13

And when he

00:11:15--> 00:11:25

sought to go further away from that land, that rejected the message of a law as far as he had understood,

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

he ended up on the sea

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

and in a storm

00:11:34--> 00:11:38

and ended up in the water.

00:11:40--> 00:11:49

How exactly the different narrations about what actually took place. But what concerns us most is he ended up in the water.

00:11:52--> 00:11:53


00:11:54--> 00:11:56

he was swallowed by

00:11:58--> 00:11:59

a creature of the sea.

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

A big fish,

00:12:04--> 00:12:04

a whale.

00:12:05--> 00:12:10

What Allah knows best, a creature of the sea, swallowed him.

00:12:14--> 00:12:27

And Allah protected him from being digested by that creature because that's what should happen. You end up in the stomach of a creature like that you you're going to be digested, you'll be eaten

00:12:28--> 00:12:30

a lot of protected him.

00:12:32--> 00:12:35

And inside of the stomach of that sea creature.

00:12:38--> 00:12:42

He turned back to a law and he made the law

00:12:44--> 00:12:49

La Ilaha, Illa and subhanak in the country.

00:12:52--> 00:12:56

There is no god worthy of worship besides you.

00:12:58--> 00:13:04

May you be glorified. Indeed, I am among the sinful.

00:13:06--> 00:13:06


00:13:10--> 00:13:10


00:13:13--> 00:13:14

is so powerful.

00:13:16--> 00:13:18

That Prophet Muhammad sallahu wa sallam had said

00:13:20--> 00:13:23

Allah will relieve the distress and the depression

00:13:26--> 00:13:31

of anyone who prays the prayer of my brother

00:13:33--> 00:13:33


00:13:36--> 00:13:37

This is a promise.

00:13:39--> 00:13:41

A law will relieve our depression.

00:13:42--> 00:13:45

So we have the driver Sula, la sauce Allah,

00:13:46--> 00:13:52

Allah Khomeini I will do becoming an HMI well, Hazard

00:13:54--> 00:13:55

as well as the DA

00:13:56--> 00:13:58

of Prophet, Yunus.

00:14:01--> 00:14:08

This, Islam is provided to deal with a trial

00:14:10--> 00:14:15

and tragedy that happens in so many lives.

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

instigated by shaitaan

00:14:23--> 00:14:24

we should be aware.

00:14:26--> 00:14:34

Take this cure. Allah described the Quran as a cure. Take this cure Islam as a cure

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

for our illnesses

00:14:38--> 00:14:42

and use it in our daily lives.

00:14:43--> 00:14:44

I asked last month Allah

00:14:47--> 00:14:48

to guide us

00:14:50--> 00:14:51

back to him

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

and to spare us

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

the pain and the suffering of depression.

00:15:01--> 00:15:04

Depression from shavon.

00:15:06--> 00:15:10

To protect our children, our family members

00:15:12--> 00:15:13

those we love

00:15:14--> 00:15:16

from this terrible state.

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

I asked a law

00:15:22--> 00:15:28

to protect all of us from depression,

00:15:30--> 00:15:32

distress, worry

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

and extreme silence.

00:15:38--> 00:15:41

From the story of Prophet Yunus.

00:15:42--> 00:15:46

There are four main lessons to be learned.

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

The first

00:15:50--> 00:15:57

is the need for patience in all of our affairs,

00:15:59--> 00:16:01

the need for patience

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

because with patience,

00:16:07--> 00:16:10

depression, cannot overcome us.

00:16:11--> 00:16:13

That's the fact of the matter.

00:16:15--> 00:16:16

For most of us,

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

impatience is the norm.

00:16:24--> 00:16:26

Holika insano ajuda.

00:16:27--> 00:16:34

Human beings are created with a hasty nature

00:16:36--> 00:16:38

and impatient nature,

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

that is part of our nature.

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

Those people who are born

00:16:48--> 00:16:51

who seemed to be patient, from the earliest

00:16:53--> 00:16:55

times of their lives, there are a few

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

we admire them,

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

there are a few,

00:17:01--> 00:17:05

but patience is achievable.

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

It is achievable.

00:17:10--> 00:17:13

Otherwise, Allah subhanaw taala

00:17:14--> 00:17:23

would not have put patients as the ultimate

00:17:24--> 00:17:30

route for achieving success in this life and the next

00:17:32--> 00:17:38

after telling us that we are going to be tried well under blue and accomplish a mental health your jewelry.

00:17:40--> 00:17:52

He went on, to describe all of the forms of trials that we may experience in life, loss of wealth, life, family

00:17:53--> 00:17:54


00:17:56--> 00:17:59

he close that advice

00:18:01--> 00:18:03

with for Basha sabreen

00:18:04--> 00:18:11

give glad tidings of Paradise to those who are patient.

00:18:13--> 00:18:17

Those who whenever they are struck by a calamity.

00:18:19--> 00:18:30

They say in LA he was in LA he Roger when we belong to a law and to Him, we must return.

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

Now, normally,

00:18:37--> 00:18:39

when somebody says that people say, well, who died?

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

somebody died in your family.

00:18:46--> 00:18:57

But that's not what the law said. It didn't say whenever you have somebody die, you say in 90, like I said, Whoever has any calamity in their life.

00:19:01--> 00:19:02

If they're a patient,

00:19:03--> 00:19:04


00:19:06--> 00:19:16

in the law here in Ireland, Roger, they're guaranteed paradise if that becomes their way, whenever any tragedy trial

00:19:19--> 00:19:23

what we call bad luck and know that there is no such thing as bad luck.

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

It's a loss other

00:19:28--> 00:19:30

whatever happens

00:19:31--> 00:19:40

no matter how small or how big. We say in law, he was in LA he Roger was

00:19:42--> 00:19:44

a reminder to ourselves

00:19:45--> 00:19:50

that everything is in the hands of a law

00:19:52--> 00:19:53

that says

00:19:54--> 00:19:56

it's all with a law.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

So we need to just put our trust in Him.

00:20:01--> 00:20:07

patiently and everything will work out.

00:20:10--> 00:20:11

So bring this sooner.

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

This so now given to us by Allah Subhana Allah practice by Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, bring it back to life

00:20:21--> 00:20:26

as a means of helping ourselves overcome depression

00:20:28--> 00:20:34

they do is we've got them through our units, the DA Rasulullah saw Salaam tortoise

00:20:37--> 00:20:40

from last one to Allah in the Quran to us in general.

00:20:41--> 00:20:43

Use these

00:20:44--> 00:20:47

make them a regular part of our lives.

00:20:49--> 00:20:54

And inshallah we will overcome depression, we will not become depressed.

00:20:56--> 00:20:58

and patience is achievable.

00:21:00--> 00:21:08

No matter how impatient we feel ourselves to be, and we think it's impossible, I cannot be patient.

00:21:09--> 00:21:10

Yes, you can.

00:21:12--> 00:21:23

If you're saying you cannot be it is impossible for you to be patient, then you're saying that a law has created you unfairly.

00:21:26--> 00:21:36

He has created you so impatient, that you cannot achieve patience. And then he told you that if you want to go to Paradise, you need to be patient.

00:21:38--> 00:21:39

That's unfair.

00:21:40--> 00:21:50

Well, I have lamora bukata. And your Lord will not be unfair to anyone. This is what Allah told us.

00:21:52--> 00:21:56

So know that patience is achievable.

00:21:57--> 00:22:02

And Prophet Mohammed salatu wa sallam told us how to achieve it.

00:22:04--> 00:22:09

He said, Well, maybe at the top bar is a beautiful law.

00:22:10--> 00:22:11


00:22:13--> 00:22:18

strives to be patient pretends to be patient,

00:22:19--> 00:22:22

forces himself to be patient.

00:22:24--> 00:22:27

A law will make them patient.

00:22:29--> 00:22:39

Now, some people might say, well, you're forcing yourself you're pretending to be patient, when in fact you are not. This is a kind of hypocrisy

00:22:42--> 00:22:43

is hypocrisy.

00:22:44--> 00:22:45

It's not you.

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

Well, Rasulullah Sallam told us do it.

00:22:51--> 00:22:58

In our terms, you might look at it as hypocrisy. But it has with it a principle

00:22:59--> 00:23:03

for developing and changing character.

00:23:05--> 00:23:08

That principle is that if you keep doing something

00:23:09--> 00:23:16

regularly, you keep working with it, eventually it will become natural. That's the point.

00:23:18--> 00:23:26

So when you pretend to be patient, externally, people see you as patient, but internally, you're exploding

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

with impatience,

00:23:30--> 00:23:40

eventually, that explosion will get less and less and less unless until there is no explosion.

00:23:42--> 00:23:42

And it becomes

00:23:43--> 00:23:46

you have become patient.

00:23:47--> 00:23:51

That is the advice of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.

00:23:54--> 00:23:55

The second

00:23:56--> 00:24:01

point that we should learn from the lesson of Prophet Yunus

00:24:03--> 00:24:05

is that we should

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

acknowledge our mistakes,

00:24:10--> 00:24:17

acknowledge our mistakes to Allah subhanho wa Taala. and acknowledge our mistakes to those around us.

00:24:20--> 00:24:21

Nobody likes

00:24:22--> 00:24:23


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

acknowledge mistakes.

00:24:27--> 00:24:29

We prefer to hide it.

00:24:30--> 00:24:46

That is our nature again. We don't want to be exposed. We want people to think the best of us. So we try to defend and cover our mistakes instead of acknowledge them. However, you cannot change.

00:24:47--> 00:24:53

No change will take place. As long as you don't acknowledge your mistakes.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

Because when you hide it, you keep doing it over again and you hide it

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

You do it and you hide it.

00:25:03--> 00:25:06

So the only way forward, the only way for us to

00:25:07--> 00:25:08


00:25:09--> 00:25:11

and become better people

00:25:12--> 00:25:20

is to acknowledge our mistakes. Because when we acknowledge it, then we can work on it, then we can change it. The third

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

is repentance.

00:25:26--> 00:25:33

Turning back to a law, in repentance, for the sins that we have committed,

00:25:35--> 00:25:37

quickly, not delaying it.

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

That the way forward

00:25:43--> 00:25:51

is to recognize, acknowledge our mistakes our sins and seek repentance from our laws.

00:25:52--> 00:25:58

We asked him, there is no sin to great that we cannot seek repentance from.

00:26:00--> 00:26:03

But that process of repentance

00:26:05--> 00:26:07

gives us strength

00:26:09--> 00:26:14

builds us to be able to overcome those sins.

00:26:15--> 00:26:24

And the fact that we did it and we came back and we asked repentance, and we did it again. And we asked repentance and we did it again. And of course a thought would say Look at you.

00:26:26--> 00:26:30

There is no repentance for you to keep doing it.

00:26:32--> 00:26:42

But reality is that if we strive sincerely, yes, you may do it again. But it won't be like the first time.

00:26:43--> 00:26:51

The third time won't be like the second time, the fourth time won't be like the third time eventually it gets less and less and less.

00:26:52--> 00:26:55

For some people they repent one time they stop and finished done.

00:26:56--> 00:27:00

But for most people, it takes time.

00:27:01--> 00:27:08

So we don't become depressed. shaitaan wants to put that thought in your mind No, no point See, it's a waste of time.

00:27:10--> 00:27:12

Allah will never forgive you look at you.

00:27:13--> 00:27:22

But the point is, Allah is able to forgive all sins, no matter how great they may be.

00:27:23--> 00:27:28

And this is the message of the Quran and the Sunnah. The fourth point

00:27:30--> 00:27:33

is that we should glorify Allah.

00:27:36--> 00:27:37

We should praise Allah.

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

throughout our day,

00:27:44--> 00:27:45

Su Han Allah.

00:27:47--> 00:27:50

Al hamdu, lillah Allahu Akbar.

00:27:52--> 00:27:54

This should be on our lips.

00:27:55--> 00:28:02

Throughout the day, not just after Salah, we sit and we say Subhana Allah Al hamdu Lillah Allahu Akbar.

00:28:04--> 00:28:09

And then we go on to the rest of the day, till the next Allah Subhana Allah Al Hamdulillah.

00:28:11--> 00:28:12

Next Allah

00:28:14--> 00:28:16

This is not what was intended.

00:28:19--> 00:28:36

What is intended is that when we're saying Subhana, Allah, Al hamdu, lillah Allahu Akbar after our prayers, this is a reminder for us that between the prayers we should be saying so the Hannah law, Al hamdu, lillah Allahu Akbar.

00:28:37--> 00:28:43

Because there are so many occasions, there are so many things happening in our lives,

00:28:45--> 00:28:50

which should be graced with the statements of Hannah law.

00:28:53--> 00:28:54

Why not?

00:28:55--> 00:28:57

So the HANA law, you see something amazing.

00:28:59--> 00:29:00

What do we say?

00:29:02--> 00:29:04

No, we say, wow.

00:29:05--> 00:29:18

Yeah, every place where you want to say, Wow, say subarna law. Those are the places where Suhana law begins, you know, belong, that's where we should be saying so by the law.

00:29:20--> 00:29:21


00:29:22--> 00:29:27

every day, there are things happening, good things that have come to us.

00:29:28--> 00:29:38

There is place for Alhamdulillah we do say that one we say a little more often because at least in Salah, we are beginning our prayers with Al Hamdulillah it's there all the time.

00:29:41--> 00:29:42


00:29:43--> 00:29:48

let's try to say Alhamdulillah with real meaning.

00:29:49--> 00:29:51

You know, hamdulillah we as we say Allah,

00:29:53--> 00:29:53


00:29:55--> 00:29:57

but Alhamdulillah

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

it really Alhamdulillah

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

Now we just need to try to put some more meaning into it. Really think Alhamdulillah

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

and Allahu Akbar. Of course, there is no end of opportunities and circumstances in our lives, when we know that Allahu Akbar is appropriate. Allah is greater than all of these things.

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

how powerful

00:30:31--> 00:30:33

the enemy seems.

00:30:34--> 00:30:38

hurting Muslims, bombing Muslims,

00:30:39--> 00:30:42

misguiding Muslim, Allahu Akbar.

00:30:44--> 00:30:50

People think, oh, Allah is just waiting on the battlefield jihad, you're going to kill that. No, Allahu Akbar.

00:30:51--> 00:30:56

No, that's not the only place. Yes, on the battlefield we say Allahu Akbar.

00:30:57--> 00:31:03

But the battlefield of our lives, there are many places also where we need to be saying allow awkward.

00:31:06--> 00:31:11

You got fired on your job? Because you tried to do the right thing.

00:31:12--> 00:31:15

You refuse to agree to a kick back.

00:31:18--> 00:31:18

You are fired.

00:31:21--> 00:31:23

This is the time Allahu Akbar.

00:31:27--> 00:31:27

Allah is greater.

00:31:30--> 00:31:32

You can't hurt me.

00:31:33--> 00:31:35

If I'm doing what is pleasing to Allah.

00:31:37--> 00:31:42

You did that you think you are going to hurt me because I didn't go along with your

00:31:43--> 00:31:47

plan to earn yourself extra money

00:31:48--> 00:31:50

illegitimately. bribery,

00:31:51--> 00:31:58

kickbacks. Under the Table deals I refuse. You fired me. Allahu Akbar.

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

Yeah, Allahu Akbar. Allah will take care of it.

00:32:06--> 00:32:08

So I asked her last month Allah

00:32:10--> 00:32:14

to bring his remembrance back into our lives to toccoa.

00:32:16--> 00:32:20

Through following the guidance of His Messenger, Muhammad Sallallahu, wasallam.

00:32:21--> 00:32:23

and protecting ourselves from depression.

00:32:25--> 00:32:35

I asked the last one to Allah to protect our families, our children, to forgive those who went before us, those who we have lost.

00:32:37--> 00:32:45

We asked a lot to make their graves gardens from Paradise. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to make the way forward,

00:32:46--> 00:33:14

good and clear for the Ummah to protect us from the evil of those who seek to prevent the spread of Islam to distort the image of Islam. We ask Allah to make us truly His servants from his Alia, those who are close to him, and who love him, about whom he said, Lao finale him, Willa whom

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

no fear will overcome them.

00:33:20--> 00:33:23

nor will they be depressed
