We need to understand that no matter our feeling, this is from Allah subhanho wa Taala no matter how we feel about that situation, this is from Allah who is that he will Jalon now it is easy for a person to be grateful, when he is given, but what should we do and what should our attitude be when we are deprived? Or when we are struck with that which we find this distasteful? Allah horrible is that he will Joanne says, as
close che Oh, are you calm and perhaps you despise something and it is actually good for you. If we take a look at the story of use of Allah yo salatu salam, when he was in the world, and there was darkness around him his own kith and kin, his brothers had thrown him into the wild and left him for the dead.
He did not know what ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala had planned for him in the years to come. He didn't he did not know that this throwing into the well would result in him being raised to the stage of leadership. So Allah Rasool is that he will Jalil plans for us. And later on, if you see what Allah subhanahu Attallah says, can really kick it in early Yousuf. And in this manner, we plotted we planned for use of Allah who Salatu was Salam, meaning that his life was planned out by Allah subhanho wa taala. The fact that he would end up in the wild thrown by his own kith and kin, and then he would end up being seduced by the wife of the Aziz and then he would end up in prison and
then he would be taken out of prison, and then he would end up at the stage of leadership was all planned out by Allah subhanho wa taala. If use of Allah your salat wa salam knew the bounty that Allah subhanho wa Taala had planned for him while he was in the well, then you would have been happy with it. But it is something that naturally the soul, the enough's dislikes. Why? Because I am being affected here. I don't know whether I'm even going to live. But the heading of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi. wasallam tells us as your unreal movement. Amazing is the affair of the believer in umbra. Who Kula who hate all of his affairs are good for him in Asada, who may you him, Mohammed Allah for
Canada who hire if he is afflicted, if something good happens to him, then he thinks Allah subhanho wa Taala and it is good for him. Or in Asaba Houma Cara, who, for Sephora, Canada who have you and if he is afflicted by something that he doesn't like, that is distasteful to him, his child died, or perhaps his business burnt down or perhaps he is affected by a storm, etc, whatever it may be, no matter what it may be, he has patience. Why? Because he knows that this is from Allah subhanho wa taala. And that is why the DUA when calamity strikes is in early learning you are in
your own indeed we are we belong to Allah subhanho wa taala. and to Him we shall return so our lives, our souls, our bodies, our existence, our mothers, fathers, uncles, arms, brothers, everything was given to us by Allah subhanahu wa taala he chose to take away one of them today. Then I am grateful to Allah Bucha is that you will gentle I will have patience. Yes, perhaps I may grieve for a few moments. Yes, perhaps I feel that this is something serious. Yes, my I am a tear. That is all okay. That is human that is Rama and mercy from Allah subhanahu wa taala. But ultimately, as a believer, I know they are gone and we are going behind them. We are all leaving this world. So it is
patience for another 20 3040 years, and then we will be reunited. You see in the story of use of Allah who Salatu was Salam yaku Bonnie Salatu was Salam displayed amazing sovereign patience. And he says, After so many years of his son being taken, yeah, Benny have over there has said Sumi Yusuf wa he will soon assume your own healing.
All My Sons go and look for Yusuf and his brother and don't lose hope in the Rama of Allah subhanho wa Taala
What happens we have been going through trial tribulation, one year, two years, three years, a person begins to question, when is the help of Allah Subhan Allah subhanahu Metalla going to come, when is the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala going to come, I've been waiting here for so long, I don't know when it is going to open up. And if that person waits just a few more moments, perhaps it will take another year, perhaps it will take another six months. And Allah subhanahu wa taala opens up the doors in amazing ways, amazing ways. So there is never a period of darkness that lasts forever. In an island grocery use one in three uses raw, indeed with hardship, comes ease, with
hardships comes ease, you see that hardship, you may not see but within that hardship is an ease written for you by Allah subhanaw taala and after that hardship will definitely come ease. And you need to show that your team and firm belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala conviction that Allah will open my doors. And when you do that, then Allah subhanahu Attallah knows you have pastored that you have passed the test. And when you pass the test, then you opens up the doors in amazing ways. So never lose hope. Never lose hope, no matter how bad it may seem, use of Allah Salatu was Salam with the world around him the walls surrounding him in a small enclosed space. He's looking up and he he
knows nothing. He knows when he doesn't know whether he is going to survive or not. He doesn't know that there is a caravan that that's on its way sent by Allah subhanho wa taala. And even those people didn't have good intentions, they picked him up and they sold him as a slave yet he wasn't a slave. So sometimes Allah subhanahu Attallah sends you a lifeboat that you may not even like, you may think that hey, but what happened to me here, but Allah has planned something for you. And remember that as a believer, you have to have that he again that Allah will take me out of this and Allah subhanahu wa taala most definitely will. Ultimately if a person is tested in this world, until
they die, until they die, then the is Janna waiting for them. If they have believed, and they have patience, if they have believed, and they have patience, then there is janma waiting for them. You know, one Hadith tells us that those who come on the day of piano and they see people in higher levels, they will wonder Who are these people and it will be set to them. These are the ones who are tested. These are the ones who went to through trial and tribulation when they see what they have, they will wish that their skin was torn with hooks in the dunya so that they could achieve what those people achieved. So don't look at your problem as something that is, you know, not worth it.
It is an opportunity for you to gain closeness with Allah subhanho wa Taala and most important, as soon as it strikes, remember Allah horrible is that you will Jelena ask Allah subhanahu wa to Allah to grant you the ability to be patient, why not everybody can bear patients, a woman who is sitting,
a woman who is sitting and she had lost her child Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passes by her, and she is crying. So he asks, What's wrong with this lady? So they told him that look, she she lost her child, etc. So he says, Look, have patience. And she says, Elaine can leave me. What do you know about my pain? How do you know what I'm going through? And later on, she hears that that was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So she goes to him and says, You know what? I regret what I said. I regret what I did. So he says in nama sabrewing just submitting Gula suburb patients is when calamity first strikes. Allah subhanho wa Taala is testing you. What are you going to say? Are the
swear words going to come out? Are you going to tear your clothes? Are you going to slap your face? Are you going to wail? Are you going to shout out against the decree of Allah subhanho wa taala? Or will you see like a believer in the law or in Iran? We belong to Allah and to Him we shall return he gave and he has taken I thank him. May Allah subhanahu wa taala give us the ability to bear that patience and may Allah subhanahu wa taala give us the ability to thank when we are given, I mean also Allahu wa sallam Obara, Kerala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germain
