00:00:32--> 00:00:39

It was good. Okay. Hamdulillah. This is a good crowd handle. Today is beautiful it but it may be difficult to

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

how I want to say this without scaring you. No, I'm just kidding.

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

To apply it on a daily basis, I think this is a good one. To apply it on a daily basis, this is going to be a challenge for majority of us. And what I'm going to talk about is is our rainbow to be pleased with Allah.

00:01:02--> 00:01:14

That's why it's pleasing Him, pleased with him. Not pleased when he gives me because we all are and if we are not, we're ungrateful. Is the issue when he doesn't.

00:01:16--> 00:01:35

When I want something, and he doesn't give it to me, when I make all this dua and then it doesn't happen when I don't want it but he gave it to somebody else. And I was like, why is it why they have it? I don't. And then you have to practice not solve or not being patient. This is completely different. This is You're happy. You're pleased?

00:01:36--> 00:01:39

How many of you can say I'm sorry.

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

Can you hear me?

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

Can you hear me in the back?

00:01:47--> 00:01:48

It's a low

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

I need what?

00:01:53--> 00:01:55

I don't know what does that mean? But I will do it.

00:01:57--> 00:02:03

Okay, I'm good in technology, but not that good. Okay, can you hear me now? Hamdulillah. Okay.

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


00:02:06--> 00:02:18

how many of you can see here, right? And nobody's seeing you again, camera is on me. That you know what? Whatever Allah gives me. I'm fine with it. And I said, whatever.

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

Cool Allah give Robin Aquarius.

00:02:23--> 00:02:39

This is a very famous Egyptian slang. It's absolutely translate to the state. Anything comes from Allah is good. That's what they say. It's very common. If you go to Egypt, and you know a little bit of Arabic one of the ones you hear it is this. So how many of you says this is me?

00:02:41--> 00:03:05

I love it. I love the response, huh? Like what's really? I wish right? Okay, how many will say and I'm not talking about things you like, things? I don't like? I asked. It didn't come? Or someone has it. I don't I never thought of it. When when I saw it, I was like, You know what I want? I wanted to how many of you say maybe once a week.

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

I am pleased with Allah once a week

00:03:12--> 00:03:16

once a week when these things happen, not when I get what I want.

00:03:20--> 00:03:24

Okay, we'll try I'm glad that we know what's good news. I didn't hear inshallah.

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

This is a huge change.

00:03:30--> 00:03:42

So I'm gonna take you through it. Actually, those of you who read our Ruby, this is actually beautiful. It's written by Imam Abdullah M, which is my dad who just said to him, but this specially this chapter, this is why I didn't look anywhere else.

00:03:43--> 00:03:59

So what is it? Number one? What does it mean? That you are on the radar? Let's keep saying this word. So when you hear it, it will ring a bell. What is a redeeming translate? I'm satisfied. I'm pleased. I'm happy.

00:04:01--> 00:04:18

I am absolutely feeling in peace. I mean, in a peaceful state. That's a real law. So for example, when someone comes again, practical, you're an interview, and they gave you the job. Usually after that you're accepted. What's the next thing you're going to discuss?

00:04:19--> 00:04:26

Its benefits and salaries, right? That's the usual so they then most of the people say what is your offer? Right? And so they give you a number

00:04:27--> 00:04:32

and then you are absolutely fine with this number. It's like hamdulillah that's

00:04:33--> 00:04:47

when you don't argue when you say Yeah, sure. That's perfect. So number one the question there's a couple of questions I'm going to share with you may Allah put baraka and the time I think we have enough time today inshallah. Is it something we have to do?

00:04:49--> 00:04:54

Is it an order from Allah? Or is it highly recommended?

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

It's silenced.

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


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

it's a science class today

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

is it something highly recommended? Or there's an order in the Quran or in the Sunnah, that we have to? What do you think?

00:05:13--> 00:05:18

Absolutely, highly recommended and that's of the Wrath of Allah. Because if it was

00:05:19--> 00:05:22

obligation once a week

00:05:23--> 00:05:45

remember when I asked you how often once a week, so what do you learn and it's something recommended because there is number one, no order in the Quran. And number two, Allah complimented those who practice this. You all know the famous statement and the Quran part usually comes in the Quran part of the ayat which one I'm going to say.

00:05:46--> 00:06:18

Now Radi Allahu Anhu were all the one they are pleased with Allah actually starts by Allah has pleased with them, which we all want. And have you ever thought what does it mean? I am pleased with him. That's how it is Radi Allahu Anhu are the Allahu Anhu we're all know and Allah has pleased with them. But we are pleased with Allah. Have you thought of this? Did you all read it in Ramadan? It's more than one place in the Quran. Right? Did you read it? What does it mean?

00:06:19--> 00:06:24

So Allah has you please with me? hamdulillah haram, that's my dream. What does it mean? I'm pleased with Allah.

00:06:26--> 00:06:37

And how some of us are, how do I dare even say, I'm not pleased with Allah. Right? But he specifically said what are the one? What does it mean? I'm pleased with Allah.

00:06:40--> 00:06:41

Another silence Bismillah?

00:06:44--> 00:06:45


00:06:47--> 00:06:50

So you're satisfied with his decisions? Very simply answered.

00:06:52--> 00:06:58

And I'm going to add a little bit. Make it a little bit harder. No, I'm just joking. Whatever Allah brings me

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

I am satisfied. Literally, this is how it is. whatever comes my way. I'm fine.

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

Allah puts me in Irvine. I'm fine.

00:07:11--> 00:07:17

Allah tomorrow decided to move me to New York. I'm fine.

00:07:18--> 00:07:21

Allah decided to give me children. I'm fine.

00:07:22--> 00:07:27

Now coming to the other ones, Allah decided not to give me children. I'm fine.

00:07:28--> 00:07:34

Allah decided I'm gonna get married. I'm fine. What? I'm gonna get divorce. I'm fine.

00:07:36--> 00:07:37

Did you see

00:07:38--> 00:07:39

how easy

00:07:41--> 00:07:43

it's not easy at all?

00:07:44--> 00:07:47

At all. However, is it impossible?

00:07:48--> 00:08:11

No, because Allah would not have mentioned it. Because he mentioned it's in the Quran. World. One there is meaning there are people, right majority minority sometimes once a week, once a month, but there are people which takes me to the next one. This is what we all need to start because we all know you know what? I'm not there. This is not me. But can I

00:08:13--> 00:08:15

that's the question for everybody. Can I?

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

Yes or no?

00:08:19--> 00:08:23

Yes, of course. Come on. Take it easy. Right. Fine.

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

We'll see her next month right now.

00:08:27--> 00:08:34

So can I my answer should be if our last edit. That means I can.

00:08:35--> 00:08:58

I didn't say it's easy. We're going to do it tomorrow. But since he said the Radi Allahu Anhu we're all one then there are people who have done it before me. And we always say if they can do it, I can do it. Right? Or at least what's the next step? I'm gonna try. I'm gonna take the path. Is that clear? Bismillah

00:08:59--> 00:09:10

they say to what cool relying on Allah yesterday last week if you remember less Allah will be caffeine Abda isn't Allah enough for me? You reach that stage. Now the next step is you're pleased with him.

00:09:12--> 00:09:15

And that's why this they say this is one of the highest levels.

00:09:16--> 00:09:59

I want you to think this way. The past one last point out I am in this dunya right we are going to Allah subhanaw taala we like it we don't like it. We think of it this is reality. Right? I am every day I get older I'm literally getting closer to Allah and then that's physically but then there is spirit or spiritually Where is my heart in this journey? Is it way ahead my age way behind my age. So this is the stages they call it mahkamah While these other names but the stage is where am I? Am I still? Do I love him? Maybe am I really afraid of him? Maybe remember all what we have said so far. This is class eight

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

are seven all alone, this is seven. So every stage I'm absolutely getting into a step and a step. And by the way one leads to the other. There is a reason why they put them in that sequence. Because you will never, never be able to be pleased with Allah unless you love them.

00:10:17--> 00:10:37

It's very difficult. If you don't love someone, you're not happy with them. True or False. Always think of people and then Allah is Exalted. So I have to be, I have to love Allah, I have to know him. I have to love him. And then I have to trust him. That's last week, then I'm pleased. Why? Because if I trust him,

00:10:39--> 00:11:03

that he takes care of me, like nobody else. And he really takes care of my fear. And whatever he brings my way, by wisdom, then I'm pleased. And that's what they say the end of it. The end of relying on Allah, you start with it. There's two hadith of Roswaal usados and I'm one of them. We do it in the morning and the evening deathcore.

00:11:04--> 00:11:39

He said the following and this is in Muslim delicata mo Eman Monrovia Billa here Oba Oba we Muhammad in the video but it's Tammy, Dina, will Islam. Do you know Muhammad in Libya? You will know what faith mean. They'll taste it. Not I believe. But I really know what it mean. Like when you say I know what caught what, for example what honey is, but I've never had honey. So I really don't know what it is. Once I taste it room. This is good. This is honey. So they say you will be a true real believer

00:11:40--> 00:11:47

living as a believing person, man or a woman when you are so pleased that Allah is my Lord.

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

Allah is r&b

00:11:51--> 00:11:54

and then Allah chose Islam for me.

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

And then Rasul Allah is soft or Salam is my or a soul.

00:11:59--> 00:12:01

How many of us honestly,

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

can say this statement applies to

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

ABS absolutely happy? Allah is my job.

00:12:12--> 00:12:18

Absolutely, this is not 50% to 60% when I can when sha Allah

00:12:19--> 00:12:20

this is I am.

00:12:21--> 00:12:29

Here's my rub. I am a Muslim, and Rasul Allah, He Salatu Salam is my Rasul. How many of you say this is me?

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


00:12:33--> 00:12:49

already, let's talk about it. So what does it mean? Right? What does it mean? You know what you may be? Sometimes we don't know. And turn to be we are so let's see rally to be la Hara Burmese what? Number one.

00:12:51--> 00:13:01

You will love you. And this has to be only everything I'm going to say before it is only you can't have anyone else with it. You only love him.

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

You only afraid from him. You only have hope in Him.

00:13:10--> 00:13:12

And you only turn to him.

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

It's only

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

did you see now?

00:13:20--> 00:13:31

Meaning reality. When I come to a daily decision, this is our life. We always have decisions to make, right? How do we base our decisions in general?

00:13:33--> 00:13:58

You know, you calculate this is good for me. Whatever, whatever, whatever. And then know what but when you make made your decision decision based on only this is pleasing to Allah. I don't like it. I absolutely don't like it. It's very hard. No one will help me. No one will support me people will blame me. Are you crazy? All this you hear? But you're you're saying

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

this is what he wants me to do? And he this is what pleases him. I'm doing it. Are they to rely on?

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

How many now?

00:14:12--> 00:14:13

I don't see 100.

00:14:17--> 00:14:18

Say that again?

00:14:20--> 00:14:33

Raja hopeful in Allah's pantile only. It has to be only then really to be like Europa and then comes with it and really to builder as I am his servant. I worship Him only.

00:14:35--> 00:14:44

He's the only one who deserves to be worshipped. I'm absolutely happy with whatever he brings to me. There is no if and what and why.

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

That's why I told you this is not easy. We can say it, but one day the life comes in. However, if I do it once a week humbler that means I can do it another day. That means I'm in sha Allah I'm working on and this is really inshallah

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

I have the intention. I'm going to work on it.

00:15:03--> 00:15:11

And the lead to will Islami Deena that's how many say I am so happy I'm a Muslim, all of us Bismillah

00:15:12--> 00:15:16

why do we argue about them what Allah wants from us as Muslims?

00:15:21--> 00:15:22


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

It's not easy in our life.

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

But it's not he did not make it hard.

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

The life changing.

00:15:34--> 00:15:42

And the challenge, to be a Muslim is not easy whatsoever. And by the way, living wherever you are living.

00:15:44--> 00:16:02

So when I say I love being a Muslim, and I'm not a claimer, that means whatever Allah told me to do, I'm doing it. I'm not going to say what they will say about me, but none of my friends does it. But we're living in this in America who does these things anymore? Then I am not ready to release the media.

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

Are they to be Mohamed in Abuja

00:16:06--> 00:16:08

everything he told me to do?

00:16:09--> 00:16:52

Some Yeah, now. I hear and I obey. That's why when you reach that level, you know what faith is. And I'm going to share with you at the end, what will I get when I have this state of radar? Because we all say what I'm going to get it is very hard. What I'm going to get I'll leave it best to the to the last. Second one which we do it. One of the jurors when you hear the Adhan same concept are the two biller here OB OB Stamey Dena of new Hamedan Obeah when you hear that done, when you say hola Mara by the doubt tamo. So that's an argument you see this one also in the Roswaal as auto Salam said whomsoever, say it, all his deeds, I'm sorry, all his sins will be forgiven.

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

I'm going to cut a couple of things I want to share with you.

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

Yeah, hidden why those Janya? Absolutely a person who I knew wants to be like him, he was asked, When do I get there? Much I have Lola amarela. When I'm going to get that status, he said,

00:17:16--> 00:17:25

Write this it's beautiful honesty, right? And ask Allah subhanaw taala to give it to us. He said, When I practice the following four,

00:17:27--> 00:17:47

then I have reached it. When I practice these four, then I have reached this status of I'm pleased with Allah. What is it? He said? And he's talking to Allah, either our attorney cupboard, if you give me I'm happy, he's talking to Allah. If you give me I'm happy.

00:17:48--> 00:18:08

Why am I not attorney will do it. And if you're gonna hold it from me, I'm pleased. We're interactive, any habit. And if you didn't, if you if you did not help me, I'm still your servant. And endowed attorney. And when you asked me, I will respond

00:18:10--> 00:18:31

a seat one more time. And let's apply it because unless I do in my daily life is going to be hard to understand these concepts. Either our attorney covenant, if you give me I am, I will accept it. What does that mean? He decided tomorrow Subhana that I'm gonna get sick

00:18:33--> 00:18:45

is our beta and he gives me don't think always have what we like. Because everything comes from Allah. So Allah tomorrow decided that my life will change something I don't like.

00:18:46--> 00:19:09

I'm, I'm fine. Clearly give Robina Quays? It came from Allah, I accepted and accepted me. There is no me. Well, here I am, or that doesn't mean you're not sad. We're going to come to it later. Doesn't mean I'm not an angel. Of course, I'm going to feel it of course I am going to be crying. But I am not going to say why me this is not fair.

00:19:11--> 00:19:15

And if he didn't give me I'm pleased.

00:19:17--> 00:19:29

He didn't give me I deserve the job. I have the qualification. I have the training. I did an excellent interview. And everyone told me will have the job guess what, guess what? I didn't get the email.

00:19:30--> 00:19:44

I didn't get accepted college and everybody other than me who much less than me. In all the qualification got accepted. I didn't get accepted to that university. What normally we do.

00:19:45--> 00:19:51

Young and old parents and the children he's if you hold it all fine.

00:19:53--> 00:19:57

And if you did not support me, I'm still your servant.

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

So you

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

made a DUA, and he didn't give it to you.

00:20:03--> 00:20:05

You're still going to go and do your Salah exactly the same way.

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

And if you ask me, how did this is something you have to learn this relationship with Allah, if you ask me, he's talking to Allah, I'll respond.

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

What does that

00:20:23--> 00:20:27

mean? You say, Well, he's gonna call me for Hajj, I'm gonna go, of course you can occur.

00:20:28--> 00:20:32

And if you're not gonna go call me call it go. White.

00:20:34--> 00:20:37

Meaning when he puts you in a situation,

00:20:38--> 00:20:42

that you will be his servant. But it's very difficult.

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

It's very hard.

00:20:46--> 00:20:48

And no one wants to do it. But he chose you.

00:20:49--> 00:20:51

I'm gonna say, I'll do it.

00:20:52--> 00:20:53

It's me.

00:20:54--> 00:20:56

Parents, and let's take

00:20:57--> 00:21:05

candy, not young children, but children in the house. Right? Your mom looked at you and says, I want you to do the dishes today. Do you like it?

00:21:07--> 00:21:08

Who made her speak?

00:21:11--> 00:21:13

Who made her speak? Answer?

00:21:16--> 00:21:20

Doubt, and he called you to wash the dishes?

00:21:22--> 00:21:27

You think this doesn't? This is how it is? I can't move without his permission. Do you think I know.

00:21:28--> 00:21:45

Now let's get parents, parents, right? Or let's say spouses, your husband told you to do something or you ask your husband. And this is both sides. Right? And you're gonna say? Is that what Allah wants from me? What did we say last week about, say the halogen?

00:21:47--> 00:21:48

When Satan Ibrahim left her,

00:21:49--> 00:21:55

our la Monica Vihara? Is that what Allah told you to do? Go, that's when he calls you.

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

Subhan Allah.

00:22:00--> 00:22:33

Now, it's not necessarily when Allah test you or test me or test us that I'm not going to complain. I'm not going to feel sad, or I'm going to cry. It's not like I'm not an angel again. But I am not going to again say, Why me? resist it. It's not fair. I'm going to say your OB, this is your decree. I'll give you an example. As I was reading in preparing, when I was in Turkey, when I wasn't in talk here one week after I can tell you what I saw. This will never leave my memory.

00:22:34--> 00:22:51

Can you it's beyond your imagination. And these people are majority. All of them are actually Muslims majority. And they are good human beings. I mean, I met some of the survivors, Allah, they are probably better than you and me. And you look and you want to accept this.

00:22:53--> 00:23:09

You have to accept it. It's the decree of Allah. Do you see this as easy and I am not affected. I'm not a victim victim. I didn't have people died. I didn't have my home collapsed. I looked and I said to me, I said, Who Karela de la.

00:23:10--> 00:23:29

I give me the status of being pleased with this. This is your decree. And then I said it. And I think some of you may heard that I was like lateral law. There is no objection to what you decree. So if I say that, or I feel that or I feel sad, that doesn't mean I'm not pleased. But I don't say this is not fair.

00:23:31--> 00:23:51

Here I am. I'm a Muslim. Why is this happening? That I am not arguing with people I'm arguing with him SubhanAllah. And so he says there is no contradiction between feeling sad, feeling pain, it does not contradict realize it's like a patient when he drinks the medicine. It's bitter, but he's drinking it.

00:23:52--> 00:24:06

Because he knows this is good for him. And I know everything comes from Allah is good for me. How many of you let me see hands. Don't worry. This is not a hard question. Right? You went through a tough time in your life doesn't matter young or old.

00:24:07--> 00:24:14

A month later a year later, five years later, you find out this is the best thing ever happened to you? How many?

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

That's it.

00:24:18--> 00:24:19

But at the time when it happened?

00:24:21--> 00:24:23

Did you say this is for sure. Good for me.

00:24:25--> 00:24:26

I love No.

00:24:27--> 00:24:45

Now we need this is one of the steps to be pleased with Allah decree. Remember before when you went through a tough time or when you went through states status or state estates where you were not happy then you found out later this was the best thing ever for you. And that's what everything comes from Allah is the best.

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

How do I do it?

00:24:52--> 00:24:57

Number one, here two things. Who am I? And who is Allah?

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

It's very lovely. So

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

I highly recommend those of you who read Arabic read the book. It's beautiful. He said yesterday that he catalog, it's very easy for the servant greedy,

00:25:10--> 00:25:12

said the following number one, who are you?

00:25:14--> 00:25:18

When we say human being what do you say? Sometimes we say it

00:25:19--> 00:25:36

to ourselves or sometimes if I'm weak, I'm not strong. And that's the one of the criterias of human being, human being when Allah created us, we're not we think we're strong, or we're not, there's always something stronger than us. So you remember who you are, then you remember who is he?

00:25:39--> 00:26:01

You have to start with who is he because everything is coming from him. And when He is all knowing, all wise, all merciful, all the names of Allah, then what comes from him, is good for me. And this is how I need to keep reminding myself and one of the most what I will say this is first or second, is you need to ask him to give you the status.

00:26:03--> 00:26:12

When something befall on you, and it is very difficult. You beg him to give you this you ask Allah, I want to be pleased with you.

00:26:14--> 00:26:21

Give it to me, say it's hard, you know, I'm weak. I'm just a human being. And you say Allah give it to me Subhanak.

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

I'm going to share with you some of the dialogues between righteous people.

00:26:27--> 00:26:32

And Hussein of Nadi, the grant child of rasool Allah Who salatu salam.

00:26:33--> 00:26:41

He was told about the role of ARIA companion said, being four is more beloved to me than being rich.

00:26:44--> 00:27:02

What do you say about this statement? So the grandchild of Roswaal risotto Saddam Hussein was told that other a companion said, being too mean to him being four is more beloved to me than being rich and being sick, more beloved to me than being healthy.

00:27:04--> 00:27:06

The quote he said, Rahim Allah,

00:27:07--> 00:27:10

may Allah bless her brother.

00:27:11--> 00:27:13

For me, this is what I say.

00:27:14--> 00:27:17

This is the grandchild of rasool Allah salatu salam.

00:27:18--> 00:27:22

I want what Allah chose for me.

00:27:25--> 00:27:28

I want what Allah choose for me.

00:27:29--> 00:27:58

He wants me to be rich. That means it's good for me. He wants me to be poor. So that means it's good for me. He wants me to be healthy. He wants me to be sick. Basically I want and I'm going to teach you a dua let me say it now just in case I don't forget it. I don't remember who said that dua Allah whom in law or read and read lemma to read

00:27:59--> 00:28:11

I'll say it again Arabic and I'll translate a lot in the last read and lead inflammatory your Allah I don't want

00:28:12--> 00:28:16

to want but what you want

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

focus with me I don't want

00:28:21--> 00:28:23

but what Allah wants

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

this is a riddle

00:28:29--> 00:28:30


00:28:33--> 00:29:16

so Elizabeth man uncovering maybe Roswaal say NO to NO OTHER worth man was asked about the crosswalk as autos run the door I just shared with you, it's like your Allah make me pleased with your Kado. He said, When they asked him why did he say after? Why didn't he say before? Why didn't you say Allah, whatever is gonna come to me make me I am happy with it. He said, Because when it's before you, and then you don't like it, this is when you need to be pleased. Before it comes to you don't know what is going to come its way come something you like, which means you put the application, right, and then the application Come on, you will not accept it. I need to be happy before I have

00:29:16--> 00:29:20

hope. You know what I did my homework, everything is gonna come.

00:29:21--> 00:29:22


00:29:23--> 00:29:26

One of the definitions of it, you have no choice.

00:29:28--> 00:29:36

And this is the day and time off. Choice, no choice, meaning let Allah choose for me.

00:29:37--> 00:29:43

Let Allah choose for me. Now. Another definition of it is when your heart

00:29:44--> 00:29:46

is absolutely in peace.

00:29:47--> 00:29:48

With whatever comes your way.

00:29:50--> 00:29:58

You're in peace. You came to the class, you left our hand and you're driving and you took the day off so you can and then guess what?

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

The car ends

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

middles stopped, there was an accident and highway was jammed

00:30:06--> 00:30:09

your heart who allowed this to happen,

00:30:11--> 00:30:17

your heart in peace, then you are in a state of riddle satisfaction.

00:30:19--> 00:30:25

And I say not would have not have Bob wrote to have almost a luxury. And he said, Let me tell you something,

00:30:27--> 00:30:36

as he would say no Homer said about that. He said, all goodness will come when you are pleased with what Allah chose for you.

00:30:37--> 00:30:49

Every good thing will come. fentanyl, higher Aquila, Ofori law, all goodness will come when you are pleased with what Allah if you can be pleased, do it.

00:30:50--> 00:30:55

And now he knows you and me. And if you couldn't, then at least be patient.

00:30:57--> 00:30:59

You can't be pleased unless you're patient.

00:31:01--> 00:31:12

So number one, aim goal is up high a plus. Sometimes in this a plus it's not very easy, then at least I am going to practice patient.

00:31:13--> 00:31:51

Now you all know the famous verse Your Napster not mine. Right? Or GA Iran wiki. Aha rah, the earthen model, you all saw this, this you would love to. I don't think anyone in this room will not want that. That's when you are dying. I want this I want to hear this in my ears, that the angel is saying to me also that the one that Allah is pleased with. Go back. You are pleased with and you are pleased.

00:31:53--> 00:31:54

europea mean

00:31:56--> 00:32:04

so what does that mean? What does that mean? Allah says go and enter my my Jana. Meaning you practice this.

00:32:07--> 00:32:10

Imagine this is imagine I don't know how much this is gonna

00:32:12--> 00:32:14

imagine all of us live this way.

00:32:17--> 00:32:18

All of us live this way.

00:32:19--> 00:32:23

What is going to happen on this earth everybody, not only the people in the class.

00:32:24--> 00:32:35

Imagine everybody in your school. Pleased with Allah. Everybody at work, pleased with Allah. Everybody in the masjid. Please with Allah, what is going to happen?

00:32:37--> 00:32:38

Peace on Earth.

00:32:39--> 00:32:45

Peace, internal, peace, external, and most importantly, peace with each other.

00:32:46--> 00:32:54

We will live in peace will enjoy this life. We will love what Allah gave us. Or he didn't give us

00:32:58--> 00:33:08

what will I get? I'm going to practice this Today you'll learn this. Let's it I'm going to start from today. I'm going to say whenever I open the fridge,

00:33:09--> 00:33:11

and I know I put my dinner in the fridge.

00:33:12--> 00:33:18

Right? How many times this happens? You open the fridge and someone a children

00:33:20--> 00:33:34

write we're not gonna say Who's that person it doesn't matter. Right? Or someone came and cleaned the fridge and thought this is it was a leftover but you loved it. And someone thought you don't want it. May Allah forgive us all.

00:33:36--> 00:33:39

What happens usually Now don't tell me about three one reality.

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

It depends.

00:33:45--> 00:33:55

There is a range from screaming who there did this to me? Who took this from me? And especially if you knew who was it?

00:33:56--> 00:33:57

That person needs to disappear.

00:33:58--> 00:34:14

Right? Then you have no idea. What rebar mean. Right? You bake? Do you have guests coming in? And let's not play him only the youth have guests coming? And you made this whatever. Right? And then somebody came and started eating from it.

00:34:17--> 00:34:20

Right World War World War Three in the house.

00:34:22--> 00:34:23

That's not true at all.

00:34:24--> 00:34:33

So when would I get if I'm going to practice this. So I opened the fridge and I didn't see my dinner. What do I'm going to say?

00:34:38--> 00:34:42

Before you say you have to mentally prepare yourself.

00:34:44--> 00:34:44

You're going to say

00:34:46--> 00:34:56

a lot took it away. You always have to say Allah. Remember we said it's easy when I know who Zi and who I am. And I'm going to say Allah take took it away.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

Now you're going a little bit

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

If I calm down, you're not going to be blaming people. You're not going to be blaming people because Allah took it away. Right? So the first thing is Allah took it away, but I'm hungry

00:35:11--> 00:35:41

and I love the food. This is how we are this is reality, keep saying the one who gave you the leftover and took it away or give you another one, come down. So number one, the more you practice this before I say this one, let me ask you also questions, wake you up and make you feel it. How many of you on the Day of Judgment, when I am in front of Allah subhanaw taala and we all will be is going to look at you and me and says My servant,

00:35:43--> 00:36:25

My servant, He not I am saying it he. So he identify you not by your name, who you are, where you live, or how much money that you are His servant, which is the highest level. You know that Subhanallah the Astra be Abdi langeland Elmers Masjid Haram Madras, notify Allah Allah said this first verse in Surah to Israel, glorify Him who carried his servant. He called the Rasul Allah sought to serve his servant, and the nine journey. So if he calls me and you, and that day, his servant, I and you are reaching each level.

00:36:28--> 00:36:44

So the first thing you will get from practicing this heart, the practice, it will lead you in that journey to become the real servant of Allah. Why is that? Think with me? What does the slave do?

00:36:45--> 00:37:31

What does the slave usually do? Right? So if you're on Hamdulillah, we don't right? But if you have seen even a servant, some of you may be and if you go back home, this is not unusual, right? You have a servant, the servant you go and tell her or him Get me water, for example, I need my tea. What they usually do want that tired 3am In the morning, they didn't sleep doesn't matter. Semi I now apply now. That's the serpent radar. When I'm pleased, gradually acting, I feel I get up. I do it. I remember who is he? I remember who I am. I remember everything comes from Allah is higher. I have the reach in this life, before I go to him, the level of servant of Allah.

00:37:34--> 00:37:35


00:37:36--> 00:37:38

because now I'm his servant.

00:37:40--> 00:37:43

You're on be me, may Allah make us all of us. Number two.

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

Do you want Allah to be pleased with him?

00:37:49--> 00:37:50

No answer, okay?

00:37:51--> 00:37:52

You don't want it?

00:37:53--> 00:37:56

Do you want Allah to be pleased with you? Of course.

00:37:58--> 00:38:01

To reach that, I have to start.

00:38:02--> 00:38:14

And I'm not talking about fasting, or doing all the acts of deeds that we do. But I'm talking about I need to reach this level of Allah looks at me, your Allah, I mean?

00:38:15--> 00:38:21

And he says, I am happy with you imagine, oh, I'll die before that.

00:38:22--> 00:38:32

Right? Or he looked at you. And you think and people think you're nothing or Ria, but he sees you. And he say I'm happy with her.

00:38:33--> 00:38:35

What do I need to do to get this?

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

Very simple.

00:38:39--> 00:38:40

Be happy with him.

00:38:43--> 00:39:01

Here this is how they see a desert woman John Solomon, you are happy with Allah. Meaning everything comes from Him everything we have just said that result. Not only I am servant of Allah, but I'm going to go back and he says probably Allahu Anki ah.

00:39:04--> 00:39:08

Now if you think that level, practicing it become

00:39:09--> 00:39:20

easier, it's not easy right away it becomes easier and then becomes as we continue becomes habit because there is people like that Subhanallah three,

00:39:21--> 00:39:22

what is gonna get me

00:39:23--> 00:39:34

that's what we need these days. The more I am happy with you. Again, let's talk between you and me. You the more you're happy with me? What is the chances you're going to argue with me?

00:39:37--> 00:39:46

No, right. So when I am happy with Allah, what is the chances chances? I'm going to be arguing with Allah? Do we argue with Allah? Yes, we do.

00:39:47--> 00:39:50

3d. You don't say why me?

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

You don't say why don't I have it? You go for an invitation and the Woman House mashallah Tabarrok

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

a lot. And I don't have Don't you feel it inside you maybe don't say it, but don't you feel it? Why not me? Then you're arguing with him.

00:40:10--> 00:40:12

We are arguing with his decree

00:40:14--> 00:40:14

or a DA,

00:40:15--> 00:40:30

I'm pleased. Whatever it comes, we'll get rid of this. Because immediately I will say he chose this. He chose this for her. He chose this for me like what we just said, I'm not going to argue

00:40:33--> 00:40:35

the most to me,

00:40:36--> 00:40:37

benefit of this,

00:40:38--> 00:41:06

I and you will live in peace. We will live in peace. We will not be agitated. We will not say why I didn't get it. I'm not going to feel sad. I'm not going to feel anxious. What makes us sad. Other than losing beloved ones. But even with that, you're going to apply this doesn't mean you're not going to cry. You're not going to feel sad, but you're not going to say they left too early.

00:41:07--> 00:41:09

They didn't live enough.

00:41:10--> 00:41:11

It's only 20 years old.

00:41:12--> 00:41:23

Why she left me I need her all these. You're not Yanni. You're not intending to argue with Allah. But reality is I'm questioning.

00:41:24--> 00:41:37

I'm questioning this. So it's gonna give me peace. Peace. Actually, this is exactly what he says is the fact I live with this. It will make me live in peace.

00:41:38--> 00:41:43

What is the dua Satan Abraham did to Allah subhanaw taala other than the Kaaba

00:41:45--> 00:41:52

or he made the DUA and he says, nobody will get this unless they come to you with hypersaline.

00:41:53--> 00:42:04

You said your Allah don't disgrace me in the Day of Judgment. This is why I'm just going to pause for a second here. To reach that level, you always have to focus on Earth hero.

00:42:05--> 00:42:34

If you focus on dunya, it gets very difficult, very hard. Honestly. I mean, we can read and enjoy the talk but to practice it, if I only focus on my dunya and the beauty and the wealth and all the enjoyment, halal, all halal, nothing is haram Hamdulillah. But that's my focus. And I'm not putting the AF euro as my goal. Being pleased with Allah Santana, it's going to be not an easy ride.

00:42:35--> 00:42:39

So go back again and says I want to go to Allah with Culberson,

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

pure heart like I was born.

00:42:43--> 00:42:55

One of the ways is be pleased with his decree. Be pleased with whatever he gives you how many of us look ourselves in the mirror? Don't show me hands, because I don't want to put you on the spot.

00:42:56--> 00:43:00

And you say 100 Allah, He created me this way.

00:43:01--> 00:43:07

Whether I'm 20, whether I'm 40, whether I'm 70, I say?

00:43:09--> 00:43:10

How many

00:43:11--> 00:43:12

these days?

00:43:14--> 00:43:17

And how many wrong to do or whatever, you know,

00:43:19--> 00:43:22

all the surgeries, whatever.

00:43:23--> 00:43:25

When I change something Allah gave me

00:43:27--> 00:43:29

indirectly what I'm saying.

00:43:33--> 00:43:38

When someone gives you a gift, and then you go and return it, what does that mean?

00:43:40--> 00:43:44

It's like he opened it now. Okay, and does all my hair she and she wants and got the gift. But

00:43:46--> 00:43:57

let me go and change it. Very few of us you return it because you don't need it. That's good. But most of us would keep it I will read it later on. Because I loved it. But I don't say that.

00:43:58--> 00:44:04

But once you when you get a gift and you don't like it, how the person who gifted you that feel

00:44:05--> 00:44:07

when he or she knows

00:44:08--> 00:44:09

who gave me my look?

00:44:12--> 00:44:14

Say it? Yes.

00:44:15--> 00:44:22

Right. He gave me this way, then I am very happy when I go and change it.

00:44:23--> 00:44:43

Indirectly, again, it's you most of people don't think about it this way. The goal of the class today is to change the way we think the way we look at a loss pantalla what he brings us the fact that I want to go and change. That means I'm not happy with the way I look. That doesn't mean certain circumstances in your life, you're not going to change it.

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

You are unhappy in your marriage. That's not gonna mean you're not gonna do anything because then I'm not pleased with our loss. pantalla No, that's not it. You're gonna take the path to change, but the result in his hand and whatever the results will be you're happy with

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

Have it. Are you all hamdulillah Herbrand when I am pleased with Allah? Absolutely. As a result, I'm going to be grateful.

00:45:11--> 00:45:15

This elders, I'm so happy with the gift, what are you going to do right away? textile

00:45:16--> 00:45:19

design kilo, how did you know I really wanted this.

00:45:21--> 00:45:28

It's amazing. This is the color I like. You're happy. And you are grateful.

00:45:29--> 00:45:45

So whenever comes in handy again, I told you, I gave you a heads up in the beginning, that this is not an easy class. I took you through all this. This is how it is. But when I think of it, it's coming from Allah. My mindset should change.

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

Because he is the one who can give me anything you want. But he chose this for me that when this is good, I'm so happy r&b. I'm grateful to you. Even if you don't feel it, fake it till you make it.

00:46:02--> 00:46:05

I really mean it. Most of the scholars of Tesco have teacher this

00:46:07--> 00:46:21

because it's not easy to reach this. It's not too easy to be patient. It's not too easy to be obedient to Allah. And he I wish it is. It is not. That's why Jana is expensive. And that's why Jimena is surrounded by everything we don't like.

00:46:23--> 00:46:31

Jabri, Larissa was with the Roswaal usato son and he saw Jana when Rosa de Santos and he said I can't imagine

00:46:32--> 00:46:40

nobody wants to go to John or nobody will work to go to Jana. And then he said look with Allah surrounded the Jana with

00:46:42--> 00:46:43

everything we don't like

00:46:44--> 00:46:58

her fatigue Ginebra Makara that's why it is not an easy ride. And the Hellfire when he saw it, he said I can't imagine anyone would do anything that will he was told or she was told this will lead to the to Johanna.

00:46:59--> 00:47:05

And he said through a see what Allah surrounded it with everything we like

00:47:07--> 00:47:12

Subhanallah now a couple of comments about it is very nice.

00:47:13--> 00:47:38

The person who is now many of you raise your hands in the beginning, some said once a week some says yes. So now let's come and say what is the test that I am pleased? They say the person who is pleased with Allah is pleased with his choice. I'm translating please with whatever Allah chose. For him. We all agreed on that. But look at the next one

00:47:39--> 00:47:42

does not want anything he wants to choose.

00:47:44--> 00:47:45

I'm not going to choose.

00:47:46--> 00:48:00

And this is because you know what Allah choose for you is better than what you choose for yourself. I've seen people literally literally, they don't even any Allah when you get in the company of these people you feel you're like a baby.

00:48:01--> 00:48:05

You traveled with them says I'm not going to choose a seat. I was like why? What is wrong with choosing a seat?

00:48:07--> 00:48:08

Right, what is wrong with them?

00:48:09--> 00:48:10

They are connected.

00:48:11--> 00:48:13

I want him to choose for me.

00:48:14--> 00:48:17

And I said what about if you're going to be in the middle and five hours?

00:48:18--> 00:48:20

He said that's what he chokes for.

00:48:22--> 00:48:23

What are you gonna try

00:48:25--> 00:48:51

to get there? In the beginning, don't always do what you like. In the beginning in the first Jenny Bismillah as we say Bismillah I'm just starting. That's everything you like you have to do it. Wait, let's see what Allah wants for you. You know this your honesty Hara you all know, right? When we tell Allah subhanaw taala choose for me, this is good or this is not good. And you don't have the answer. You wait, he is going to send it to you.

00:48:52--> 00:49:08

Now this is a dialogue between three very righteous people. Get ready Bismillah so Soufiane story who's a follower? And he's absolutely he's actually had a school of thought, but not most of it didn't reach us. He said I don't like to die suddenly.

00:49:09--> 00:49:10

Okay, what is wrong with them?

00:49:11--> 00:49:35

And he said I used to if he is alive now I don't know what he will say. But he said this is after Rasul Allah Assad was and he said, I used to hate to die suddenly today, I want to die. And they said why? He said from all the tests and trials, the fitna we are seeing let them come now. Right. They would have wished never born

00:49:36--> 00:49:47

then the other person. He said, Yeah, why do you don't want to you want to die now? He said, Because I'm so worried from all the temptations that is happening around me.

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


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

use of he said the other person and he said and he says, but I don't like to stay too long also. And he says but you do

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

Want to die? He said, No. He said why?

00:50:06--> 00:50:12

I love this one. This gives you hope. He said maybe he will give me one more day

00:50:13--> 00:50:20

that he will open the door of Toba for me the door of repentance and getting closer to him, why do I want to die?

00:50:21--> 00:50:44

He was more optimistic with what Allah will bring. And then these two, look at the third one what he said, so once said, No, I want to stay. I'm not worried about the temptations. Allah will open the door of Java. The other one says, No, I don't want this is too serious. Look at the third one. That's why it is here. He said, I don't want to choose anything.

00:50:46--> 00:50:48

I love what he chose for me.

00:50:49--> 00:50:53

Or him boo, daddy, Callie, a lady had the whole laundry.

00:50:55--> 00:51:15

I like what Allah Who will give me what Allah loved for me. And then Sophia, and God came and kissed between these two eyes, which meaning a sign in, and especially between scholars that you really nailed it. You really said the right thing. They usually come and kissed you between your on your forehead between your eyes.

00:51:17--> 00:51:17


00:51:22--> 00:51:26

say no more often than as you said, when you wake up in the morning. What do you feel?

00:51:28--> 00:51:32

Let me ask you first. You wake up in the morning. What do you feel?

00:51:33--> 00:51:37

Didn't have a good night's sleep? My head is spinning.

00:51:39--> 00:51:39


00:51:40--> 00:52:03

Oh, it's Monday if you only know how many things I have to do. Right? And it's true. And they were not busy while they were busy. But they were conducted he said. They said what do you feel in the morning? Say no more of Nautilus is the fifth Khalifa he said, I woke up in the morning and I have nothing happy. Nothing will make me happy.

00:52:06--> 00:52:10

except what ALLAH who will decree for me today?

00:52:13--> 00:52:15

Nothing will make me happy.

00:52:16--> 00:52:22

Except what he doesn't know what Allah has decreed. How do I know? Except for Allah, Allah bring my way.

00:52:24--> 00:52:34

And Abdullah Bloom is old. He said richness and coolness is to animals. I don't care which one Allah will put me on, because he will choose the best for me.

00:52:35--> 00:52:44

Bottom line of this class today. For us, we're not our beloved nosode. We're not saying no, we're not there.

00:52:45--> 00:52:46

But from what I see.

00:52:47--> 00:52:50

Most I think all of you, you really want to be there.

00:52:52--> 00:53:03

Because it's the highest level is going to need me and Jimmy was being the servant of Allah. Jana will be waiting for me but before even Jana, I will live here happily.

00:53:05--> 00:53:18

I am going to say Allah, help me, help me to reach that status because I can do it. No way. I am going to do reach that status.

00:53:19--> 00:53:39

Unless you help me and I will end with this dua are soiree salatu salam. No since it's a number of knob disease also he said Allahumma Rajani we alike your Allah make me pleased with what you decree wabarakatuh robotically V cada Ric

00:53:40--> 00:53:43

and put baraka and blessing in what you have already decreed.

00:53:45--> 00:54:23

So that your la hatherleigh or Hibou to ajuda che in a Horta. So I don't want anything that you did not allow it to happen to happen yet. And I don't want to delay something you already brought it in. Let's say it one more time. And we will end up here. Your Allah number one around the knee, we like your work, please make me pleased with what you decree. And I want you to take all the spectrum, each one of us have issues very different from the other. It doesn't matter I need to be pleased with it.

00:54:24--> 00:54:34

I can do it alone, he will help me rather than me being called or helped me to be pleased with what you will decree. It didn't happen yet.

00:54:35--> 00:54:59

And then he said bless what you have. What will you decree meaning what will happen? So here I am tomorrow morning, the plan is let's say to go to class at nine o'clock you know I have I have to go to work. So I'm going to say your alabi please make me happy with whatever is going to happen in the class and whatever will happen at work. It didn't happen yet. Then I go and

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

Something happened really worse.

00:55:02--> 00:55:19

Or, even better. I'm asking Allah after what happens, I want you to bless it, too. And then I reach this point. So whatever comes in that time, I'm happy with it. I don't want something didn't happen to happen. I don't want something happen not to happen.

00:55:21--> 00:56:11

The last which is the and this is somebody was asking me actually this morning I had an interview with a TV and they said what do you how do you teach your children? What do you advise mothers of children and to me to know Allah and to love Allah and this was a one day I'll do this dua oil on this hadith for you but just this one just came to my mind. When I know for a fact for fact, not a single atom of doubt. What happened to me will never miss me. And what missed me will never happened to me.

What I'm going to say I'm going to be happy because that's how it is.
