Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa salatu salam ala mode with Rahmatullah Alameen. And the Vienna What have you been a Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam I'm about

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


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

the level of Sharon I mean, she has so far.

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

Alfa Romeo is nonverbal and more fiddly. The actual

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

Ashura offend where she'd

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

be the light Allah I will be your guest today in sha Allah speaking about this important topic.

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

First of all, I would like to thank especially Feras and the organization he is leading, if he is the leader there

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

may Allah subhanaw taala grant you good and success in life and may Allah smart Allah accept all the efforts you're doing to benefit the OMA of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

Today be the light Allah will be dealing with

00:01:05 --> 00:01:10

a topic which I consider to be one of the most important topics to be discussed in these days.

00:01:12 --> 00:01:15

Subhan Allah the Ummah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is tested

00:01:17 --> 00:01:34

almost everywhere. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned some part of this test in the Quran. And he says well, Neville wonder condition in middle Cove you will you will now proceed Minella moily Will unfussy with filaret whereby she'll sabe Allah subhanaw taala says

00:01:36 --> 00:01:50

we are going to test you in this life Be sure in miracles you will you will not go see Minella moi they will enforce you with a Murat. So we learn from this that the Omar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is going to pass a pass through these tests.

00:01:51 --> 00:02:31

Allah subhanaw taala says Alif Lam Meem has he been Natsu and you Turku and you're cold and warm light afternoon to people think just because they say we believe Allah subhanaw taala is not going to test them. While a confessional Levina mean cobbly Him filiana Mon Allahu La Nina Saba Sabado Allah subhanho wa taala. He said, We have tested those people who came before them so that Allah subhanaw taala will know he already knows. But this is to differentiate between the truthful ones and those people who are astray who are not truthful in whatever they say in the emaan in their statements, you know, so these are some of the reasons why Allah is one test testing the OMA to

00:02:31 --> 00:03:19

segregate between the truth and the falsehood. You know, as I said, the OMA is facing a lot nowadays. And with the new visitor that we have, which is the Coronavirus to add on top of the lack of peace that Omar is going through any many people went out of their mind. So the solution has been given to us. I will start from day one. What do I mean by the day one, the day one was the day Allah subhanaw taala sent down Adam to the earth. And you know what really happened. And this is the most important thing that the Muslims should focus on, to understand that, whatever happens to him in this life, it is actually because of him not bearing with that which Allah subhanaw taala asked him

00:03:19 --> 00:04:01

to pay attention to, he doesn't heed the message. He doesn't focus on the message. It doesn't apply that which Allah smarter wants him to apply. And as such, the evil consequences take place. Adam when he was placed in Paradise after his creation, Allah subhanaw taala told him that you have a right to do everything in this place. You know, you can eat whatever you want. And there will be no fatigue, there will be no hunger, there will be no awareness, there will be no worry in this life. So he has a very excellent and pleasant life where he doesn't worry about anything. So Allah subhanaw taala told him this is what should be doing. But there is a restriction and this

00:04:01 --> 00:04:46

restriction Subhanallah It was absolutely simple. It was absolutely simple. And this exam exam, this is actually the example of our life, all the restrictions that allows me to put in our life. When he says we cannot do this, we cannot do that. Wallah who they are absolutely simple and easy. But unfortunately, you know the battle between you and your real enemy is continuous, a promise Allah sponsored to block all the means that can lead you to succeed in this life. So Allah subhanaw taala told either mother, he Salam, do not eat from this tree. Do not eat from it. He said if you don't eat from it, you're going to enjoy life. But unfortunately, he was deceived by the devil. That was

00:04:46 --> 00:04:59

the real enemy of humankind. So devil told him shaitan told him that the reason why Allah subhanaw taala asked you not to take from this tree is simply because he doesn't want you to stay here for him.

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

Have you had an experience the place you know how it tastes, you know how excellent is the place. So if you take from that tree, you will remain in that place forever.

00:05:11 --> 00:05:20

Adam was not supposed to trust him. But this entity saw by Allah, He said to them, I swear by Allah and giving you an Asiya

00:05:22 --> 00:05:57

Adam forgot the promise between him and Allah subhanaw taala and the word of Allah when he told him Do not approach this tree, he ate from it, and this is the beginning of the tragedy. Once he ate from this Allah subhanaw taala took off his cloth, let him became become naked, which confirms to us that the real dress and the cloth and the uniform or whatever you are having hijab as a hijab to cover you and to cover you out from others senior our is what is your taqwa

00:05:58 --> 00:06:24

Allah Subhan Allah to Allah Subhan Allah after this, when he blamed Adam for that which he did, and he forgave him because Adam repented immediately and he realizes his mistake. Allah says, You're forgiven, but you have to go down because it is it appropriate for somebody to commit sin in that place. So Allah has monitor forgave him, but he held him somehow accountable of that which he did. He brought him down to earth based on the color of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:06:26 --> 00:06:31

Before he came down, Allah subhanaw taala told him there is a possibility for you to come back to the place.

00:06:32 --> 00:06:43

And the request is, I'm going to send along with you and your descendants, a guidance that will lead you back to the original place which is the best place that everyone should be aiming for.

00:06:44 --> 00:07:09

Allah azza wa jal says Enza Natalie, Kamali bison you are so article Malaysian wali Bassett Taqwa Velyka, higher, Allah azza wa jal says we send down along with you Libras Libras is a cloth, something to protect you a shelter. But then Allah Azza told them while he was a taqwa, Velyka hire the best Libras you know the cloth you have to cover you and to protect you our is the righteousness you have.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:33

And that's why Shavon when he taught Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm going to deceive Adam and his descendants, or I'm going to deceive his descendants. He said Well attitude ACARA home Shakira and you will never find most of the descendants of Adam being thankful to you. You're speaking to who to Allah subhanho wa Taala so that you and I will know that the real enemy we are facing is shaytaan.

00:07:34 --> 00:07:48

But is there any way out? To get out of his trap? To avoid falling in his traps? Yes, there is in the same place when he said he's going to deceive everyone. Allah subhanaw taala told him no.

00:07:49 --> 00:08:32

In everybody laser like Allah Himself thought, what can five Europe be? Kokila? Allah subhanaw taala told him that my slaves, you have no power over them? What if I become a killer, and you have to know that the only one who can protect who can guard the person is Allah subhanaw taala alone. So brothers and sisters, I guess if I stop here, anyone who is suffering from mental illness, or depression or anxiety, all of these family words, if you're suffering from them, the only remedy you have Allah has nothing except to go back to Allah subhanho wa taala. We found it so simple, very conservative nowadays, when you talk about this topic, people will think that you're not being

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


00:08:35 --> 00:09:11

And let me tell you something, my brother and sisters, if I'm the one who produces this phone, you know that when it gets problem, you should come back to me to tell you what exactly should you do for you to fix it, the best person to tell you how to fix the problem that exists in something who is created by another person is to revert is to refer to that person, you know, to get the information about it, how does it work? That's why they produce manuals, you know, so that if you cannot reach that person who is the producer or the creator of the thing, you can just read the manual to see how they work. And if there is a problem in it, how do you fix it?

00:09:13 --> 00:09:16

Hopefully greater human beings, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.

00:09:17 --> 00:09:39

And obviously, it is actually common sense, you know, based on the common sense that the best person to tell you what exactly human beings are suffering from is is the one who created them. And the best to tell you about your illness is Allah subhanaw taala. And obviously the best tell you about the cure for the illness is Allah subhanaw taala.

00:09:40 --> 00:09:48

So I'm going to be very brief to talk about the causes of this mental illness or anxiety or collect they call it in Arabic.

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

And then I talk about the solution. That's all about my lecture. It is up to us as Allah subhanaw taala says OpenGL Haku was about Allah aku

00:10:00 --> 00:10:42

Welcome Arabic information for human Omaha affiliate. This is what is going on nowadays. We like to test Allah subhanaw taala. Our trust and I Eman and Allah subhanaw taala is very weak. That's why we don't see the result. But if you're going to be truthful with Allah if you're honest to yourself and you're honest to Allah subhanho wa Taala you will see the result and you will never any write it if you wish you will never be in a state of depression in this life. Allah smarter season when you tackle the hedge Allah Huma Caja, Whoever fears Allah subhanaw taala Allah promised to guide him and to give him away out of his all of all of the problems that can face him in this life. Who is saying

00:10:42 --> 00:10:51

this, your Lord? Allah subhanho wa Taala is giving you this promise that as long as you have Taqwa with you, Allah smarter said he is going to grant you a way out

00:10:52 --> 00:11:02

in the Quran in surah rod Allah subhanaw taala says Alladhina amanu wat toma in Nikolova hornbaker Allah, Allah Vivica Allah hit at my Nicola

00:11:04 --> 00:11:30

remember this I am a verse says, I'm going to come back to it. It is the solution for all of the things we are suffering from in this life, anything that happened to the with the heart, depression, you are disturbed mentally, the best solution you have, if not the only solution you have is found in this idea that I have just quoted to you, a Latina woman who were tattooing in Colombia whom Vivica Allah and advocate Allah hated minor.

00:11:32 --> 00:12:14

This anxiety and depression and mental illness, how does it get to be generated in a person? What are the causes of this, there are a couple of them mentioned by the scholars, but all of them we can combine them and put them together in one element, all of the causes mentioned by the scholars to be the causes of anxiety, you know, the causes of depression in this life, the causes of mental I mean discrepancy, you know, an illness is the causes of them, we can put them into 1.1 element. They talk about the health, the fear of the future.

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

You know, they talk about

00:12:18 --> 00:12:25

you will not have in taqwa and Allah subhanho wa taala. They talk about weaknesses in the Eman to be the cause. They talk about

00:12:26 --> 00:13:06

a lack of knowledge and Victrola not remembering Allah subhanho wa taala. And they talk about you being deceived by shaytan. And they talk about strong fear that you might fail in the future, which might lead to depression. You know, they talk about elitism. The mother had an ocarina occurring, you know, you look at yourself, you didn't feel you, okay, you know, you have some people who have these diseases nowadays. They don't feel they okay. They belittle themselves, they feel they feel that other people are better than them, they look better. That's means looking at other people's and ownership and properties. And what Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them looking at other people's

00:13:06 --> 00:13:11

belongings. And the last one I will mention here is a T shirt.

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

A T shirt, is to always have suven

00:13:18 --> 00:13:20

That's what we call pessimism.

00:13:22 --> 00:13:41

Not to be optimistic in your life, which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hated so much. Well yet so almost Tamil and always been in a state of despair, of the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa taala. So all of these, I can put them into one category, which is Alberto, Daniela has to

00:13:42 --> 00:14:10

stay away from Allah subhanho wa taala. This is the source of the color. That's why a calmness, the least in terms of depression in their life, and stress in their life and melt mental disturbances the least they are those people who attach themselves to Allah subhanho wa Taala they are the least you don't need any statistics to tell you this. They are the least. And if you see somebody who is really dedicated to Allah subhanaw taala but he's depressed at the same time.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:19

Believe me, my brother and sisters, there is something lacking in his Eman in Allah subhanho wa Taala that one needs to be fixed.

00:14:20 --> 00:14:37

And as long as he doesn't fix it, he will remain into that depression although he might be a righteous person. But you know, sometimes we will advise others do this do that but when we affected by it, we crumbled you know, you forgot that you are the one who is telling people do this, do that.

00:14:38 --> 00:14:49

So you need Allah subhanaw taala to be with you. You need to reflect you need to remember all of those things that you have been telling people that happened to be the solution to these problems.

00:14:51 --> 00:14:59

So, as I said, all of these are causes of the depression we can put them into one situation which is Albert Angela

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

So Bucha at burden Allah has the agenda which is to stay away from Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:12

So, let me look at these causes one after the other, and then I come and shed light on the on the solution itself.

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

I'll have

00:15:17 --> 00:15:19

you have the fear of losing your job.

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

You have the fear of

00:15:25 --> 00:15:33

I mean, losing your wife, you have the fear of not getting the proposal that you propose to bury somebody you know.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:37

This one also sometimes

00:15:38 --> 00:15:42

contribute in the increase in the depression that some people are suffering from.

00:15:44 --> 00:15:50

You have the fear of failing not being able to succeed in graduating from your from your school.

00:15:52 --> 00:15:54

How do I deal with that?

00:15:55 --> 00:16:01

The solution for this is to believe in the cover and the cover of Allah subhanaw taala

00:16:03 --> 00:16:10

what does that mean? To remember that everything that is happening in this life is based on the color of Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

you will love my brother sisters.

00:16:14 --> 00:16:18

Why do I need to get afraid of something which Allah has already decreed?

00:16:19 --> 00:16:22

You know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said,

00:16:23 --> 00:16:31

he said, I will mercuric Allah Who al Kalam. The first thing that Allah subhanaw taala created

00:16:32 --> 00:16:35

was the pen. That was the first creation of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:36 --> 00:16:39

The first thing created by last botella was the pen.

00:16:40 --> 00:16:43

When Allah's monster created the pen, Allahu

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

Allah subhanaw taala told the pen, right?

00:16:47 --> 00:16:50

The pen said, What should I write yet Allah,

00:16:51 --> 00:16:54

Allah subhanaw taala said, Write, what happened

00:16:55 --> 00:17:05

and what will happen and what is happening. The three tenses have been written 50,000 years before the creation of the universe.

00:17:06 --> 00:17:12

Whatever you see in this life, is moving according to the way Allah azza wa jal planned it

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

very accurate and excellent system for the benefit of those who understand.

00:17:21 --> 00:17:40

That's why if you believe in the color of Allah subhanaw taala, you will put all the efforts to attain that which benefit you but if you fail, you're not going to say this is because of this and that. You will say what? This is the decree of Allah subhanaw taala and now I know that this has not been decreed for me.

00:17:43 --> 00:18:03

What must you do after that? Move forward? Look for something else. That's how Allah is going to make it very simple for us. You put effort, you're looking for something where it miss you, you already know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said we're alum and Nima aka let me call you see back. What's whatever happened to you?

00:18:05 --> 00:18:15

Whatsoever miss you will never come to you. Subhan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, you should know that whatsoever reach you, it will never miss you.

00:18:16 --> 00:18:22

And whatsoever missed you it will never reach. Imagine everyone believes in this.

00:18:23 --> 00:18:55

Why are you going to be depressed? Just because you lost something? Why are you going to be depressed just because you're afraid of losing your job? Nowadays, you know, I'm telling the truth. There are some people who sacrifice their religion, you know, they compromise their religion. They disobey Allah subhanaw taala in a wrong way. It is always a long way. But I mean, because of the silly and shallow things of this dunya somebody is willing to disobey Allah subhanaw taala just because he wants to keep his position.

00:18:56 --> 00:19:24

He forgot that Allah's mantra already decreed everything 50,000 years before the creation of the universe, this job that you do it this way, if you're looking for that you're looking for this husband that you're looking for this business that you're looking for this business that you're looking for this money that you're trying to preserve, trying to get this thing that you're looking for whatsoever you're looking for in this life, wala Hema brothers sisters, if it is written for you, it will never miss you

00:19:26 --> 00:19:27

will never miss you.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:40

So, we find so many people after the graduation, they are depressed. People will come and ask Chef, can I go and do this job because this is the only opportunity I have.

00:19:41 --> 00:19:49

I have been missing opportunities but this job is like this. And what do you find out you see that this job is absolutely Hello.

00:19:52 --> 00:19:56

You see this person worried his affairs are scattered everywhere.

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

cannot relax in his life. All of the

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

My brother and sisters are due to the deficiency in the belief in the color and the color of Allah subhanaw taala

00:20:08 --> 00:20:43

are the wise when it comes to the risk, my brothers sisters, I know that this is already written, and whatsoever is written for me, I'm going to get it. So all that I have to do is to use the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam that says its alumni and Veronica was telling the lie what charges it says always try and hasten towards that which benefit you and seek the help and the support of Allah subhanho wa Taala and don't you ever be lazy in looking for that which benefits you the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said either comical pm

00:20:45 --> 00:21:01

or fi ad hottie Kimmy facilita needed an URISA if there is clear my is coming to you, you know that the angel of death is there. The prophets Allah sama said at the same time you're holding a piece of what he called a seed or branch of tree that you want to plant.

00:21:02 --> 00:21:06

You know that? The prophets Allah sama Cydia holding that one, but then you see death coming.

00:21:07 --> 00:21:14

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, if you can be able to plant it before death * you, he said do it.

00:21:15 --> 00:21:18

That's how much is how much Islam cares about that which benefits you.

00:21:19 --> 00:21:24

So you put your effort to look for that which is beneficial for you.

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

If you miss it, you already know that this is not decreed for me. Almost you do. Let's move forward. A believer doesn't know anything about worry.

00:21:37 --> 00:21:53

Allah subhanaw taala says let's assume a Rahmatullah And subhanAllah as a movement, you should remember that whatsoever Allah's mantra has chosen for you, it is better for you actually. That's where Allah subhanaw taala says we're Assa and Decorah who che and okay, we'll look.

00:21:54 --> 00:22:03

Sometimes perhaps you might be looking for something from Allah subhanaw taala. But Allah subhanaw taala will not grant you that what you're looking for? Why is that because it is not good for you.

00:22:05 --> 00:22:15

And you might be looking for something which is harmful. At the same time, you might be staying away from something which is beneficial for you, Paula, we are more into quantum law.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:19

Allah subhanaw taala knows, and he didn't know.

00:22:21 --> 00:22:49

So I will give you a gift. My brain says when it comes to the risk, I know this is one of the vast majority of the causes of anxiety in this life nowadays, after I graduate, what should I do the job? What kind of job am I going to do? I'm not going to find a job or I'm not going to find a job. If I marry how am I going to sustain the family? How am I going to do this and that? No, my brain says all of these are not meant for you. What Allah is meant to want you to focus on is to present

00:22:50 --> 00:23:19

your present make sure you're doing the right thing. The future is guaranteed for you as long as you're doing the right thing in the present. And if you believe in the Kedah you know that every single thing has been planned for you Allah has pointed decreed and design you will live and it is going to go like this according to the way he decreed it. Whether I like it, I don't like it when Allah He the decree of last month is going to pass on me in the way Allah azza wa jal planned it. Let me give you a gift, when it comes to the to the risk.

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

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said mankind at dunya Hama JAL Allahu fucka Holbein it was shattered Allah Hashem Lu, while I'm tied to him in a dunya Ilana Cotabato

00:23:34 --> 00:23:53

if dunya dunya this worldly affairs is the only thing you're thinking about how to get this dunya you worry so much about it. Allah subhanaw taala says, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah will remove the contentment from your heart, you will never be satisfied.

00:23:55 --> 00:24:24

This is proven on a daily basis. You see people who have who have a lot, but still, then they don't have this contentment. And my brain says this, the real sustenance is what is the contentment if Allah is one to remove the contentment from your heart Wallahi you will not relax in this life although you have a lot. That's why the Salah is Allahu Allahu Salam and the Hadith of a Buddha. He says

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

yeah, but

00:24:28 --> 00:24:31

I totally Malvina, it said the you know what is Rena?

00:24:32 --> 00:24:36

Okina is a risk ECL Brother, do you know what is the risk?

00:24:37 --> 00:24:59

opposer said yes, risk is having a lot. In some narration. He said, Do you think having a lot of money is richness. A Buddha said yes, yes. Who Allah? And he said, Do you think poverty is having a little amount of money? And Buddha said yes, yes, yes, we're Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I said no. richness is not a

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

on how much you have richness is the richness of the heart. That's why some people they have a little

00:25:06 --> 00:25:24

bit Allah's motto put Baraka in it, they will be satisfied you will see them happy. That's the most important thing. Are you really happy or not? You Allah, that's the most important thing is not about how much you have. You might have one ring in your life, but Allah has might have put happiness in your life you are the richest person on earth.

00:25:25 --> 00:25:46

As the reason why the Prophet said Allahu Allah, he was celibate circle Alpha men As Salam wa Ruzicka coffin, Papa now hula hula atta, the one who accept Islam succeed, especially after Islam when Allah smarter granting Kapha Kapha means the amount of wealth that is sufficiently enough for you to address your needs.

00:25:47 --> 00:25:50

That is sufficiently enough for you to address your need.

00:25:51 --> 00:25:56

Get it so you need hospital you have something to address it with it.

00:25:57 --> 00:26:02

You need education you have something to address it with it. You need food you have something to address it with

00:26:04 --> 00:26:40

the Prophets Allah Islam I call it if it is working now hula hula atta as long as the last Marcela grant you contentment from that which I mean in that which He granted you it said this is the best gift you get from Allah subhanaw taala Islam and enough risk and also contentment of that wealth last mile to the gratitude. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, if you're not thinking of everything in this, anything in this life except dunya it says Jan Allahu vichara, Who binani Allah smarta is going to put poverty between his two eyes. That means you will never be contented

00:26:41 --> 00:27:10

and you know what is so painful? You know, in this situation, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, worship to Allah Hashem lo wollam tetrahymena dunya Illa marketable and Allah azza wa jal is going to scatter his affairs. And that's additional fact among I mean, factor that will promote the stress in you because you have a lot of work and you're not able to accomplish your mission to make any achievement in them.

00:27:11 --> 00:27:19

And this has a causes the prophets Allah, Allah said, I said, you might be too much engaging in dunya that's what Allah is Marta is dealing with you in this way.

00:27:20 --> 00:27:42

So he was cutting you affairs. And then at the end of the day, you're looking for dunya, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, Well, I'm Ted to him in a dunya, Elana Cotabato, and you will never get anything from the dunya except that which Allah is smarter has written for you. So brothers, sisters, why do you worry so much if at the end of the day, you will only get that which Allah subhanaw taala granted for you?

00:27:43 --> 00:28:12

You worry you don't worry, Allah will never change his decree. It remains in the way it is. That's the secret behind having those good ones. You see them always in a state of happiness. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam i said i Jubilee Emeril moment, in Umbra who Kulu hide in our Sabbath who the Raja Sabha campaign Allah are in Assam but who Sarah Shekar Africana, Kerala, what is the dedicated learning moment? The province of Allahu Allah you cinema said that affair of a believer is amazing.

00:28:13 --> 00:28:19

Nowadays, this pandemic comes May Allah protect you from it and protect all of us from it.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:27

How many people went into this mental illness and depression because of it, strong fear of the sickness and the disease.

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

And believe me, my brother and sisters, if you understand what Kadar means, Allah, He will relax. You know, it is a tragedy, you know, it is a calamity. You know, it is really disturbing for you to be in the situation may Allah is meant to protect all of us. But at the same time, if you understand the fact that either of Allah subhanaw taala will never miss you if it is written for you, you will relax. That's the reason why I live in Avatar Lim said global Mota to hola como la jolla look for death, the life will be given to you

00:29:02 --> 00:29:12

look for death, the life will be given to you. He doesn't mean she to take a sword or weapons and go and fight looking for death. No, he meant don't worry about death.

00:29:13 --> 00:29:54

Don't worry about death because this is something that is confirmed whether you worry or you don't worry, it will come. So if I keep thinking, death, death, death, I will never be productive in my life. That's why I have some people. They just sit down they don't work. They're not productive at all. Why? Because they worry so much about death. Everybody will no Kata met some of these people he told them stand up and go and look for risk from Allah subhanaw taala famous Emery mutesa Because we still have time Subhanallah that's why the most relaxing people were the companions of the Prophet said last summer because they do understand what Islam means. And they do understand the concept of

00:29:55 --> 00:29:56

al Qaeda, al Qaeda.

00:29:57 --> 00:29:59

So that's the reason why I said my brothers sisters

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

Why do you worry so much? If Allah subhanaw taala has already written that which will come to you, and you will never get that which is not written written for you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said algebra lamrim movement in America, no hide, whatsoever happens to you is always good for you, as long as you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala correctly. He says in number who Kulu hide, all of his affairs are good. Well, they said allocate 11 Mormon, and nobody get this except a believer.

00:30:33 --> 00:31:13

So it's talking about this virus, so many people are depressed, you know, family lives have been cut off and destroyed. Why because now the husband is living almost 12 hours with the wife and the wife is living with him and the children also living with them. So people mess up their life, you know, marriage marriages are broken, you know, many people went into depression, we have heard about a suicide attempt, you know, by by our brothers and sisters, you know, all because of this. Whereas a good believer will take it as an excellent opportunity to establish a good relationship with his family members, to increase the love between them to know each other properly, before he used to go

00:31:13 --> 00:31:21

out. You don't sit with your family members, you don't know who they are properly. And now it is an opportunity those deficiencies that used to have now you can fix it.

00:31:22 --> 00:31:43

That's the most important one of the most important there is no lessons that we can benefit from this moment. As a student of knowledge, you have been negligent so many times you have not been addressing matters you know now you have your free time you are kept about alas monitor at home for what to complete the cupboard that Allah's model has written for you.

00:31:44 --> 00:31:50

And this disease. If Allah is smarter has written for you, it will come that's the reason why I say why do you worry?

00:31:52 --> 00:31:59

Allah says Am I to call you to come and moto while quantum people Rajan, Masha yet wherever you go, death is going to come to you.

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

and wallah if you live in the midst of 1 trillion people who are infected by this, this disease, and Allah didn't write it for you Wallahi oximeter villa, it will never come. I'm not saying you should go and put yourself into that. Now Allah says what I took will be a big complaint to helewka but you don't go and test your iman and say yeah, if it is not written for me, No, you shouldn't do that. Because Allah Sparta put a cause and suffer for everything. But what I meant is you at home, you in your office, you wherever you are, just take the necessary precaution and relax. worrying too much will never stop the facts and the reality and the decree of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:32:41 --> 00:33:11

So why do you need to disturb yourself? Wallahi sometimes I get surprised when I what I have heard about people who are going out of their brain who are having mental problems, you know, because of this issue. I'll be asking why? Why? We have a lot to do, you know, we have a lot to do. But unfortunately, our life is too much, you know, too much attached to the dunya. And this dunya is outside when a train how to live alone, which is supposed to be the other way around.

00:33:12 --> 00:33:20

That's why one of the scholars said in giving us advice he says letter Hollington us because you know I'm telling the truth, my brother and sisters, when you mix with others, you're going to get hurt.

00:33:21 --> 00:33:26

There will definitely harm me there is no way for you to mix with people without getting harm from them.

00:33:27 --> 00:33:29

This is 100% expected.

00:33:30 --> 00:33:36

If you think the opposite is going to take place. This means you have colored a problem deficiency in the way you think.

00:33:37 --> 00:33:45

What does he say this color, he said let's call it the NAS wallet if I recall correctly, the harlot the home and oak do not mix with people.

00:33:47 --> 00:33:48

And don't stay away from them.

00:33:49 --> 00:34:05

These are two contradictory advices he said don't mix with them, and then stay away from them. Because if you mess with them, they're going to harm you. And if you stay away from them, you will feel they'll feel the loneliness go crazy because you cannot live alone. And in Sonoma the new

00:34:06 --> 00:34:14

social being you cannot live alone you have to mix with others. So almost you do just be with people whenever there is a need.

00:34:15 --> 00:34:25

He says HR whom can never be tested for Obeah in the hijab, make them like the fire that you always look for whenever there is a need.

00:34:27 --> 00:34:42

So you have to train yourself, you know, to live like this. It doesn't necessarily mean that you have to go out of your house. You know, if you're too much attached to the out of the your family, you're going to get into trouble when problems like this take place. You know,

00:34:43 --> 00:34:59

even the Tamia when they put him in jail. He said mother if mother if I do will be he said my enemy doesn't have anything to do with me. cannot do anything to annoy me. He said if you put me in jail, he said this is an opportunity for me to go back to my books real quick

00:35:00 --> 00:35:03

On, memorize and do things which I couldn't do them before.

00:35:04 --> 00:35:14

He said, If he cheers me away to, from my country to another country, he said, This is Alhamdulillah a chance for me to go and explore some other places to learn, you know, to increase my knowledge.

00:35:16 --> 00:35:57

If he's going to kill me, I might be granted the shahada from Allah subhanho wa Taala Subhan Allah, this is the best way to understand life. In Saudi Arabia is a man he tries to live according to the time you're living in. And every single time will lie Allah has to granted you the way to address that time and the environment wherever you are living. You just have to address the matter through attaching yourself to this call us. So back to the main issue. I was quoted that hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he says actually, I'm removing in number Hokulani. So if you believe in this, that every single thing that Allah Sparta has chosen for you, is good for you. You

00:35:57 --> 00:35:59

will relax you will never be depressed.

00:36:01 --> 00:36:09

The province that Allahu Allah Who sellable asset in natural health could see never theory and learn to move it and have soon had that a second pillar is kaha

00:36:10 --> 00:36:27

Gibreel alayhi salam inspired me that nobody will die. This Hadees should be written with the ink of gold. You pray told me the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam I said, nobody will die before he accomplished that which Allah azza wa jal prescribed for him

00:36:29 --> 00:36:38

you know Allah subhanaw taala decreed that you're gonna get this you're gonna get that he said you will never leave this life before you get every single thing that Allah sponsor has written for you.

00:36:40 --> 00:36:45

So if this is the case, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said fact of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:36:46 --> 00:36:58

He said Fear Allah subhanaw taala whenever you are looking for risk, make sure that you're looking for it through the Halal means, because it is already written for you, whatever you will get in this life has been written for you but alas.

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

It says well I Millinocket is Tripta or risky and tofu the daily Mahala hula in Nama and Allah He Lena elaborate it here. It says, Don't you ever be deceived by the delay in the risk which might lead you to go and look for the risks through the Haram way? Because that which Allah subhanaw taala has cannot be attained except through the obedience and righteousness.

00:37:26 --> 00:37:42

Brothers and sisters, I'm not here to talk about the anxiety and the mental illness, the description of the mental illness, what is it? What does it mean? Each and every one of us knows what it means. Each and every one of us knows what it means.

00:37:43 --> 00:37:56

You know what depression is all about? You know what stress is all about? You know what mental illness is all about. So here I'm just going to give you the solution. If you really looking for solution, here are the solutions.

00:37:58 --> 00:38:06

You remember I quoted an ad that says Alladhina amanu wortmannin, Nicola Wuhan BDK Allah, Allah be decorrelated my inner Kulu

00:38:07 --> 00:38:23

Allah subhanaw taala says those who believe and thy heart find no way to be tranquil, except through the remembrance of Allah Maha remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala you should know that only through the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala two hearts find tranquility

00:38:24 --> 00:38:36

this is the solution for any depression that somebody is suffering from in this life. Only when this idea is addressed, then the advice from the psychologist can benefit

00:38:38 --> 00:38:58

we go through all types of told types of psychologists to address our matter. But in most instances, we're gonna go in deeper and deeper in the problems. I got some people they became like my Janeen and the problem increase when they start address when they start addressing the matter through the psychologist.

00:38:59 --> 00:39:09

Allah subhanaw taala gave you the way out in a very simple way in this ayah Alladhina amanu were toma in Nakuru boom Vivica Allah, Allah be the killer hated my uncle.

00:39:10 --> 00:39:13

That's why my brothers sisters, let's be honest to yourself,

00:39:14 --> 00:39:21

the only remedy you have and the real remedy you have for this is to hustle Allah katika Belaya

00:39:23 --> 00:39:25

to fix your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala

00:39:26 --> 00:39:59

fixing your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala through what through an email to Villa first to believe in Allah. And what is Iman a strong conviction, you know of the heart. You know, you believe in everything that Allah is going to ask you to believe in with your heart. You say that belief with your tongue and you put whatever you believe with your heart into practice and action. That's EMA. That means you believe in Allah, that He is the Creator. He has no partner and he is the one who brought everyone and he is the controller and he is

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

The one in which every single one is going to return back to him and you are going to worship Him without associating partner with him in whatsoever. That's the Tawheed. That's the real solution for all of these things in okay him had mentioned in his sermon is the Hanafi had mentioned in one of his writings, he says you should know that there is no light for the heart. Because the source of this mental illness and this distress and depression the source is coming from the heart, not from the brain membranes is from the heart. Allah subhanaw taala talks about the hearts to be the source of all of these things. And if the heart is okay, everything is going to be okay with you. So this

00:40:43 --> 00:41:13

caller said, there is no way for the heart to be in a state of tranquility, there is no way for the heart to be at ease. There is no way for the heart to be in peace, except if this heart attached itself to Allah subhanaw taala that's the reason why I said the main remedy and the medicine for Kulluk mental illness, depression and stress. The main main remedy for this is personal lakum Allah has to fix your relationship with Allah subhanho wa taala. How do I fix it? I have strong Iman in the last

00:41:14 --> 00:41:53

six things mentioned by the prophets, Allah someone for us to believe in them to believe in Allah subhanaw taala that means you believe in His existence. You believe in his in his Rubia that's mean he creates and He control and he owns and you believe in his own here, you know, that means he's the only one to be worshipped. And you believe in his smart was he valid, thus means he has the names and attributes and they don't resemble any name or attributes, they are very unique in their nature. And you put these names and attributes into practice and action. How do I put them into practice and action? When I know that Allah subhanaw taala sees I should restrict my my actions to that which

00:41:53 --> 00:42:13

Allah is what I make it permissible because he sees whatever I'm doing. You can see how Iman in the names and the attributes of Allah Sparta can regulate the life of the believer. What I know that Allah is smarter he is. That means I shouldn't say anything that Allah is smarter, less angry with. When I know that Allah is right is the most powerful. That means I shouldn't oppress anyone whatsoever.

00:42:14 --> 00:42:54

What I know that Allah smart is the most merciful, that means I should mercy upon others, when I know that Allah is smarter is the source of everything, as somebody that's in a less means I shouldn't worry in my life completely because I have somebody who is controlling everything and he said, if I go back to him, he he will provide me definitely with everything I need, you know, loot Alehissalaam when those people visited him, you know those criminals when they entered his house, look, Alayhis Salam said, I wish you know, he said, I wish I have some strength to fight you back. There million he's alone. He said, I wish I have a strength to fight you back.

00:42:55 --> 00:43:04

Or I can go back to a very strong protective place and protect myself and these guests of mine. The angels did not know they were angels because they came in the form of human beings.

00:43:05 --> 00:43:15

You know what the prophets Allah Allah who said him, I said, he sent me Allah show mercy upon our brother, Luke Alehissalaam. He forgot that he's the only one who is holding upon the strongest pillar.

00:43:17 --> 00:43:25

And subhanAllah look at what happened to those people to show and confirm to you that definitely Lutz alayhi salam was holding upon, though the one who is

00:43:27 --> 00:44:00

the strongest pillar, that's Allah subhanaw taala. So Allah is Marcela every day, mostly we're living this tour almost every day people who Allah had when you say Allahu Samad it means the only one that you return to whenever you need something. And he wants you to come where do you worry he wants you to come if you're sick, Allah guarantee you go back to Him, He will grant you that Shiva. If you're looking for risk Allah subhanaw taala grant you the risk, if you're looking for wife, if you're looking for business, if you're looking for admission in the university or school or whatever, if you're looking for a job, Allah smarter guarantee you if you have to go back to him,

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

he's a summative. So that's email Billa. The second thing Iman dilemma is to believe in the angels. And there are many, the most important thing we can learn from these angels is, is that they are very dedicated to Allah subhanaw taala. very dedicated to Allah subhanaw taala. You learn this from from the angels, they don't go against Allah subhanaw taala at all. That's how a good believer should be. Because we're human beings we're going to get go against Allah smarter from time to time, almost we do. We should go back to Allah Sparta in repentance, he will clean that page, which is not good in our record.

00:44:37 --> 00:45:00

And then you believe in the books. The only one that is with us nowadays is Quran. That's the requirements you believe in whatsoever, isn't it? You learn it, you read it, you put it into practice and action. You obey that which Allah Smita mention it. And you believe in the prophets and messengers, all of them. You respect them. The one who is with us is Rasulullah sallallahu Allah who said

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

Law test means you respect him you believe in him. You follow his sunnah one of the scholars said, if you can make a mean you're wearing of the shoes, you know, the wearing of your shoes based on the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, I do it. That means every single part of your life you make it according to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam,

00:45:18 --> 00:45:57

and then believing in the Hereafter. And it's very interesting because we do whatever we want in this life. But if you remember that a day will come Allah smarter will bring you back for accountability, Allah you think wisely, one of the righteous, one of the righteous scholars was in the presence of one of the leaders and the leader told him how come whenever I remember Allah Azza barrage, that one he told him, can you tell me my situation in the Hereafter, he said, your situation is going to be one of the two people you will be one of the two people in the Hereafter, either you are a good person. So that means you you will be asked in in the Hereafter, like

00:45:58 --> 00:46:10

a missing person who is going back to his family, how the reception is going to be so excellent. You are missing for ages, and now you're coming back to your family? How do you think the reception is going to be?

00:46:11 --> 00:46:49

He says, either you are this one, or you are somebody who is no righteous. So you will be on the Day of Judgment, just like a slave that ran away from the master. And now the master has sent somebody to bring him back and they brought him back to the master. You know, the Corinthians. So for instance, is very important fact that a president has to remember all the time, because it regulates the life of the believer, it makes you righteous, it makes you I mean, stay away from any worry in this life, because the real worry is that one, and that one is a fact. So you don't worry that much. And you will be looking from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how to do things in the right

00:46:49 --> 00:47:28

way so that you can avoid going into trouble in the hereafter when you meet a lot smarter. The last one is the one that I was talking about to believe in the Divine Decree of Allah subhanaw taala that every single thing has been planned by Allah subhanho wa taala. And nothing is taking place in this life. He has said that which Allah subhanaw taala decreed, which I said, is the secret behind what the life of a believer being made easy by Allah subhanho wa taala. So by birth sisters, to have the Eman first and then to pray to Allah subhanho wa taala. I'm just going to give you some tips. You know, the first thing is to believe in Allah smarter in the way I have mentioned. And the second one

00:47:28 --> 00:47:30

is to establish the prayers

00:47:31 --> 00:48:00

or establish the proofs. I'm just going to give you four things I believe in Allah subhanaw taala establishment of the prayer, how do you pray in the way we are praying nowadays? No, that will never take you anywhere. You have to precisely and exactly in the way Allah is going to prescribe it. This is the prayer that helps to give you relief in your heart, the prophets, Allah Allah Himself, I used to tell them, we need some relief. You know, when they are so tired, they get relief from the prayer. I mean, they get that relief from the prayer.

00:48:01 --> 00:48:14

They pray so that Allah is what I can grant them peace of mind, and they got it and they enjoy it. That's why they don't, they don't I mean, I mean, become negligent when it comes to the prayers. So how do I pray?

00:48:16 --> 00:48:18

In a way this prayer will be very effective

00:48:19 --> 00:48:45

in granting me the cue from this depression that I'm suffering from in this life. First of all, you pray for the sake of Allah sincerity has to be there. Second of all, you have to pray with who, who should mean to be very attentive, your heart has to understand what exactly you do. Crying is not part of the kazoo. You can pray to Allah sportaid Don't cry at all but your heart is knowing exactly what you're doing. This is what Allah smarter wants you to do.

00:48:46 --> 00:48:54

And third of all, you pray according to the Sunnah of the Prophet said last and the way it will last. The last time I used to pray is to pray calmly, not rushing,

00:48:56 --> 00:49:08

you know, calmly and not rushing, and you focus. Lastly, you pray on time, because taking the prayer out of your time, a lot smarter will make that prayer useless.

00:49:10 --> 00:49:23

So we have Iman, we have prayers, and we have the remembrance of Allah Victrola in the ayah that I have quoted Allah subhanaw taala says Alladhina amanu Wautoma inocula barbequed Allah, Allah Vivica related minor Kulu

00:49:24 --> 00:49:28

is is only through the remembrance of Allah smart Allah do hearts find tranquility.

00:49:30 --> 00:49:53

That's where Allah Azza Horta artifice his infinite mercy and blessing he granted humankind's all the whole creation not just human being this ability to, to glorify to engage in doing the test. We were like brothers sisters, you just didn't know. But this is one of the greatest source of tranquility and peace of mind and to grant your way out from any problem that you might be facing in your life.

00:49:55 --> 00:49:59

Lastly, rare instances recitation of the book of Allah smart Allah, we did

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


00:50:01 --> 00:50:03

recitation of the book of Allah Spiderwort tiltable.

00:50:04 --> 00:50:10

So this combination of all of these is called what Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:50:11 --> 00:50:21

So as I said, my brothers sisters before, the only solution you have to all of these problems is to let Allah smart Allah be involved in your life.

00:50:22 --> 00:50:45

And that is only one way for you to get Allah's Mercy involved in your life, which is to show direct dedication to that which he had revealed to you. And that's the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet, Allah. So forget about all of these illusions, people have been trying that kind of life and they regret it. And many of them actually did not regret in this life, they regret it in the heat of death, that was the worst tragedy.

00:50:47 --> 00:51:15

So I really advise my brand sisters, you relax, get Allah smarter involved in your life, but leaving Alaska to fix your iman hold upon your religion, do not compromise any part of the religion of Allah subhanaw taala and I can guarantee you with no doubt, you will never be depressed in your life. To close, I will recite this ayah which is the Saint of Allah subhanaw taala and I will assign him indicate in our own farewell who are Macmillan fella no Ian who hadn't been Eva.

00:51:16 --> 00:52:02

Allah subhanaw taala says whoever engage in righteousness, become so righteous. And he put this righteousness based on Iman and he, I mean, this righteousness is based on EMA. That's mean he has a strong belief. And he put that belief into practice and action. Allah smartasses Mohammed Hassan Hammond vicar, our own fact whether male or female, will hormone mean and he's a very good believer. So two conditions Allah subhanaw taala laid down for us to reach the success in this life. Iman, and also allowed me to have a strong faith and believe in Allah subhanaw taala and also to engage in righteous to be good, be kind to Allah subhanaw taala be kind to yourself, be kind to everyone you

00:52:02 --> 00:52:40

are meeting in this life. Allah subhanaw taala said if you do that, he says he promised Allah smarter says definitely he promised you a pleasant life. He says hat and by Eva this this is Nick era, you know, he Allah's mantra did not restrict it to a type of hair, any kind of life that can bring success to you. Allah's motto grant you that the only thing he wants from you is taqwa and righteousness and patience because you might be hazing and you know you want the result to come now, no Allah smart Allah put things in the right position. That's why he's called Al Hakim. You might want something to come now but Allah knows if he gives you give it to you now you might be in

00:52:40 --> 00:53:20

trouble. So he will delay it for for your own benefit.

Subhanallah so my brothers sisters, it is not a joke Wallahi any solution you're looking for, you know, any solution you're looking for other than this, which I have mentioned based on the Quran and

00:53:20 --> 00:53:58

the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, versus it will take you nowhere, you might see a physical solution but what Allah he will never last. The only solution that can sustain is to attach yourself to Allah subhanho wa Taala he's the only one who can protect. Allah says Where were you wanna generally, he's the only one who protects and if he's looking for you, nobody can protect you. So brothers, sisters, let's all ponder upon this. And I decided to make it in this way because this is a reality, talking about the description talking about this and that you will never take us anywhere you can go to Google and get all of these things but we need reminders like this. And these

00:53:58 --> 00:54:36

are the only reality we have. Other than that, to be honest with you, my brand says believe it or not, it is nothing but illusion. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to guarantee good, may Allah smarter put better can you live and may Allah subhanaw taala save and protect you from any form of depression and mental illness in this life? And I really urge him a baron says relax, be realistic in your life. Understand the Divine Decree of Allah subhanaw taala and relax, look for whatever you're looking for from Allah subhanaw taala and take the back seat and relax.

So put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala and don't rush ask Allah subhanaw taala everything and He will definitely grant you that one. Baraka love equals Subhana Allah Morbihan devotional Lila land as thankful God were to Rekha so I will leave the platform for you guys.

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

If you have any questions, please do come away with it. Salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:55:07 --> 00:55:08

Alright Salam

00:55:10 --> 00:55:10

is that

00:55:13 --> 00:55:14

all of us?

00:55:17 --> 00:55:22

We've got quite a few questions that has come around like, Okay, I'll go through the questions on

00:55:23 --> 00:55:25

cam in sha Allah article off

00:55:29 --> 00:55:32

the first question, this is a question from someone.

00:55:34 --> 00:55:58

I am 21 And I'm going through a lot of things in life right now. I pray I read Quran and Hamdulillah I do feel peace, but there are days when I feel on blocks, and I feel like ending my life. I know my mistakes. I know what I did wrong, but these things what am I supposed to do? I know that I was behind on what Allah is a rock man and that he forgives us. But some days I feel just lost.

00:55:59 --> 00:56:00

So this was the

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

the beginning of the question, I miss it.

00:56:08 --> 00:56:19

The question was about this person does a lot of things. He reads grant and he also paid space, but sometimes it feels lost money means like anything is fine.

00:56:21 --> 00:56:35

And this person stated that they know the mistakes, but these things haunt them. So what are they supposed to do? They should repent to Allah subhanaw taala sincerely, you know, we have to be honest with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:56:36 --> 00:56:45

if I'm going to repent to Allah subhanaw taala but at the same time I go back, you know, I repent to the GoBar the evil consequence will take place and it will remain.

00:56:46 --> 00:56:59

But usually what we have learned from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are that if a person fix it, Allah subhanaw taala might test you, you know, to be an to be action as an explanation you know for you.

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

I'll give you a simple example with those companions of the Prophet Allah, Allah Who selama that miss one of the battles, they will very honest in their repentance, and they refuse to compromise any part of their religion. One of them got a proposal actually, from one of the kings of the Arabs, you know, telling him that we have heard that you've your friend is disrespecting you nowadays. So come to us, we're going to respect you, we're going to honor you even need to stay in that state of human humiliation. Subhanallah imagine they were in a situation whereby Allah's monitor, I mean, prohibited you know, everyone to speak to them. You are staying in a place where your wife cannot

00:57:43 --> 00:57:58

talk to you. Your father cannot talk to you. Your mother cannot talk to your children come and talk to you people out of the house cannot talk to you. You know, Allah says without Allah human, ordinary Mara but the earth is so big, so vast, that Subhanallah they look at it as if they're living in one room.

00:58:00 --> 00:58:41

Imagine how much depressed a person is going to be. But Subhan Allah because they were very sincere to Allah subhanaw taala he got them out of it. This repentance of this was mentioned by Allah smart Allah in the Quran, that depression they used to face because of the evil attitudes because what they did was bad. When they repented Allah smarta test them but that test was just for a while for a while to see whether they can sustain it or not. And subhanAllah the past. Nowadays, we crumble. I just think that yes, when I did the right, the wrong thing and then I repent to Allah's Maha Rotella. Tomorrow we'll see the solution is coming. No, it doesn't go like this. Allah has pointed

00:58:41 --> 00:59:20

out of his infinite mercy and love. He doesn't treat the believers in this way. Instead of having that sin remaining on in your account, Allah is smarter sometimes will grant you another opportunity. By testing you. When he tests you, you will remove all the balance of the sins from your account. So by the time you meet Allah smarter you have an empty account when it comes to the evil deeds. So my brother sisters, the first thing I will tell the questioner is to be sincere to Allah subhana Kotel and your repentance as you said you know your mistakes you know your problems, address them and stay away from them whatsoever Allah smart Allah says he doesn't want to stay away

00:59:20 --> 01:00:00

from it. Allah Hebron says says there is no way for a person to be in a state of peace as long as he's engaging in the Masse so we have to repent to Allah subhanaw taala and come back to him very quickly. That's why one of the scholars call even a Josie he said in Noma in tuk tuk be him will be rod. Wareham legit la Hemara zine. For interval Marcia Tila, if I record you home of Allah, who in LA new Villa Manasa. It's a these people he's talking about as Harold Massey, although they are so rich. They are so rich, but unfortunately they engage themselves in disobedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala he says when Dr.

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

copy him will be hard pressed to you might not understand this because you don't live in a place where you find people riding horses and mules.

01:00:09 --> 01:00:11

Sometimes what they do is

01:00:12 --> 01:00:37

they put under the hoops of the horse some metal so that when that when the when the horse move, you know the horse is moving you hear the step Duck Duck, that's why he says when Takata himmelberg Wareham legit Allah human Praveen and you know that sound that is produced by those heavy horses, you know. So sometimes those people they will be proud of riding those horses and mules they will come to the city. So that led to show off so that people can see them.

01:00:39 --> 01:01:09

And many people will be deceived by this. Oh, so and so and so person is so extremely rich is enjoying his life. But you know that share what he says. It says for interval Massey today, if I record you help, the humiliation of Marcia will never stay away from their faces you can see that this person is not at ease in his life. Many of these people, my brothers that are living with us nowadays if you are to talk to them, and if they are to tell that they are to tell you about their life, Wallah, you will never take it free of charge.

01:01:11 --> 01:01:40

I have heard one of them when he converted to Islam. He used to be a musician. I guess many of you know him. I met him here in Malaysia when he was talking. In one of the lectures he gave. He said I woke up at night. There was a time I just woke up. I was questioning myself How come I'm not happy? He said I have houses he said I have I have gallops is it I have cards you have I have the latest and I'm so rich, you know? But he said I was questioning myself at night How come I'm not happy and to now

01:01:42 --> 01:02:17

that is no cause for this except that this person is away from Allah subhanaw taala so the only thing that I can tell you my brother is to be patient and to intensify your repentance and keep repenting to Allah smart Allah and do not give up. Don't you ever say that these things are coming? Allah He they will go out as long as you're sincere with Allah subhanaw taala they will go out my brother and sisters if you're with Allah smart Allah even the nightmare in the dream doesn't come. Believe it or not. I'm telling my brother and sisters, if you're with Allah subhanaw taala even to have the nightmare in a dream, those gains that shape and usually play with others in the dream, you

01:02:17 --> 01:02:19

will not see them in your life.

01:02:20 --> 01:02:57

It just a matter of trust. You trust Allah, Muhammad Allah, and Allah smarter will let you see miracles in your life. So my brother says I really urge you to exercise more patients or patients so the questioner repent to Allah subhanaw taala be honest with Allah smarter and make sure that those problems that you said you know your problem addressed them properly and sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and stay away from them and be patient don't have this kind of business with Allah whereby you are given a loss monitor this and you want the solution to come as quickly as possible, or exercise more patients, that solution is going to come be eaten later, or

01:02:59 --> 01:03:00


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

Just like a lot clearer.

01:03:04 --> 01:03:06

Another question has come.

01:03:07 --> 01:03:12

So this the question, are they comments on seeing a counselor?

01:03:13 --> 01:03:27

I feel like opening up about my concerns and revealing about other people's wrongdoing to someone else by suppressing or chemically alter myself, and it has become really unhealthy and I'm starting to feel

01:03:30 --> 01:03:35

sorry for us. I was trying to fix my charges if you can say it again.

01:03:37 --> 01:03:57

Okay, are there any comments on seeing a counselor, I feel like opening up over concerns of revealing other people's sins or wrongdoings to someone else. But I end up suppressing how I feel which has become unhealthy and I'm starting to feel a sense of hatred. And of what I missed that one

01:03:59 --> 01:04:04

starting to build resentment, or hatred, hatred person is giving it all to themselves.

01:04:06 --> 01:04:35

Okay, let me just put it for you in this way. When it comes to your relationship with Allah smarter and the Cynthia Corbett, in between you and Allah subhanaw taala the best way to get rid of them is very easy. You know, what Allah is going to want you to do is to identify, identify, identify your sins, to know what they are, and just sit down between you and Him and ask Him to forgive. You know, ask Allah smarter, even in your language if you cannot speak the Arabic language. Ask Allah smart Allah to forgive.

01:04:36 --> 01:04:49

After the sincere repentance, you know, if you repent to Allah subhanaw taala sincerely, and what does a Tobert in the Sahara means? A target in the Surah? What does it mean? It means you stop doing what you do which is wrong.

01:04:50 --> 01:05:00

And you have a class in that you are doing that sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. And you ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive and you have intention not to go back

01:05:00 --> 01:05:20

to it. And if that sin is related to somebody else's right that you have taken before you return it, you return it back to them. These are five conditions mentioned by the scholars, as long as you fulfill these conditions by Baron sisters, don't you ever worry at all because Allah subhanaw taala he himself, he says, Ask me to forgive, and I will forgive your sins.

01:05:21 --> 01:06:00

And he was talking to who in that Surah solipsism he was talking to somebody who exaggerated you know who goes beyond the limit in terms of the commissions of the saints. Even that one Allah smart Allah says if he can come back to him, Allah subhanaw taala says you forgive. So my dear brother, why do you need to go and tell somebody what you're doing after Allah subhanaw taala make it very easy for you to go out of it. Whatever you're doing in this life, including Sheikh even if you're committed chick as long as you come back to Allah smarter repentance, Allah smarter will accept your repentance be even light Allah. So after you repent to Allah subhanaw taala what must you do? The

01:06:00 --> 01:06:14

past you should keep it in the past. Just focus in the presence. I will give you a gift. And I hope the question is still there. I'll give you a very nice and beautiful gift to qualify that which MC now

01:06:15 --> 01:06:40

somebody met for the living area. And for their living, he asked him How old are you? He said 60 years. He said, You should know that since 60 years ago, you have been on a journey to Allah subhanho wa Taala and you're almost reaching Allah subhanaw taala Subhanallah this man woke up because he never think about it in this way.

01:06:42 --> 01:06:56

He never think of it to be like this. So for relevantly, I told him that you are on a journey. 60 years you have been on a journey to Allah subhanaw taala he said, My dear brother, you're almost reaching your destination. That means you're almost going to meet Allah subhanaw taala

01:06:57 --> 01:07:20

you're almost meeting him now. So the man says you have Abderrahman What should I do now? He said in that Allah when neither Raju and what should I do now? You know what he told him? Almost exactly your question my my dear brother. You know what he told him? He said, relax, and do not worry at all. He said us in female bucket, you will for lack of market Maga.

01:07:22 --> 01:07:27

Is it be good in that which left for you in your life? Allah will forgive the past.

01:07:29 --> 01:07:53

So why do I need to go and tell somebody what I did? Actually, my my dear brother is wrong for you to share those evil doings with others unless if you really need to mention it for somebody to grant you a way out. That means when you speak to a scholar and he needs to know that for him to know how to get you out of it. Other than that you are not even supposed actually to share your evil doings that you did in the past with others.

01:07:54 --> 01:08:38

So how am I supposed to do with them? I already know what I did. You repent, you just close your page and fix your present. Be good in the present. Allah forgive the past. And the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam has said in the hadith of other men asset a female Bucky who ferula who mama Alma, but if you are good in that which remains for you in your life, Allah smarter will forgive you a pass and Allah sporto forgive the present also. So it's very simple, my dear brother, don't worry at all since that already passed, please close that page. And that's it. I have met so many people who I have been advised that Islam is very simple. They worry so much about what they did in the past. To

01:08:38 --> 01:09:04

good idea as long as as long as you are coming back to Allah subhanaw taala Allah's motto will accept you what else is greater than COVID? What can you imagine in this life which is bigger than comfort? What is that there is nothing greater than comfort? If Allah subhanaw will accept a cafe to come to Islam and Allah smartasses Islam erases whatsoever was before it. How about the ASCII, the sins that we are committing, which are lesser than that?

01:09:05 --> 01:09:36

So relax my *, this is taking Islam take Islam, very simple, and very easy and it is like that. Just repent to Allah subhanaw taala and come back to him in repentance, Allah Subhan Allah will accept you and don't you ever focus on the past, you know, because it will really hinder your productivity. You will never be productive if you are so much focusing on the past, Whatsoever is done in the past. Just close that page and open a new page with Allah subhanaw taala This is what Allah Subhan Allah wants you to do, either Lightoller Monica rafiqul

01:09:38 --> 01:09:39

Is that a long?

01:09:41 --> 01:09:47

Question? I hope I answered your question associated with this question.

01:09:48 --> 01:09:59

What about the mental illnesses such as chronic depression and personality disorder, which accurately needs medication and treatment? My sister is one of the most religious person I know my Shaohua but

01:10:00 --> 01:10:07

Since as a teenager, he has been diagnosed with those mental illnesses, and she needs medicine.

01:10:09 --> 01:10:51

Yeah, when I was talking, I'm not saying that the the physical, or the tangible medical approaches are useless. No, they're not. But sometimes, and actually, most of the time that the issue is supposed to be addressed spiritually, actually. So sometimes we'll be wasting our time and going into this medication. And you know, sometimes, you know, not only sometimes I guess, in most instances, once you begin this medication, you have to continue, you know, you have to continue. So your life is going to be based on it. If they don't give you this medicine, then you're going to go back to that thing, again, whereby in most instances, to be honest with you, my brand sisters, this

01:10:51 --> 01:11:15

thing could be addressed spiritually, a person need to readjust the way they think you might see a person being righteous, but there is some defeat there, there is a deficiency in the belief, he has some misunderstanding. And as long as these misunderstandings are not clarified, he might be in a state of depression. We have seen righteous people, very good people, according to what appears to us, but they are depressed.

01:11:16 --> 01:11:52

Does that mean Islam is not giving them the solution? No. It means nothing. But most likely, they're not using the correct way given to them by Rasulullah, salallahu Alaihe, salam, they need to see somebody and they need to read the whole story, you know, what exactly are they suffering from? Wallahi I'm telling you, in many instances, these things they don't need any medication, they just need the spiritual approach. Somebody just need to understand what ignorance means. When I say ignorance means there are situation which you have to close your eyes and ignore them. Shaytan will bring them you ignore them shape and bring them to you ignore them. We have righteous people, very

01:11:52 --> 01:12:06

dedicated people who will tell you they are not evil Muslims nowadays. Why is that because of what too much confusion in life and a lot of misunderstanding, you know, they adapt, and they attach the religion.

01:12:07 --> 01:12:44

So what I'm trying to say now, is that I'm not saying that a person shouldn't go for medication, if somebody is diagnosed by these kind of diseases, and mental illness, where the this kind of medication is needed, a person should go for it. But I was suggested a family to approach a very, I mean, a righteous and good Islamic counselor, somebody who I mean, remember the last Maha channel knows the religion properly and he can advise them properly. Sometimes you might not need to go to anyone, and I'm talking based on experience, sometimes you might not need to go to anyone after that, the problem will be gone.

01:12:45 --> 01:13:04

But sometimes we just submit you know, we hate and we just want a solution now that's why we go to those pills and all of these things which throughout our life, you might remain in them. So I will repeat again. I'm not saying that we shouldn't approach what he called doses psychologists or we go to for the

01:13:05 --> 01:13:32

medication that we received from the doctors No, which we can do that also. But I'm just saying let's do the spiritual approach first, before we start going for the medication, the medication that kind of medication should be the last result okay, you use this use that is the zoo that then you go and try that one also, but if you are going to use this spiritual approach correctly, be even a light Allah it'll it'll work Inshallah, may Allah smarter grant is good.

01:13:37 --> 01:13:38

that go along

01:13:43 --> 01:13:44

with your question.

01:13:47 --> 01:13:50

Last question. Okay, that's good.

01:13:54 --> 01:14:08

This is something which confuses me sometimes. We all know that all humans naturally said regarding other was our sensory didn't do or did we chose to say, or was it written that we will choose to send?

01:14:09 --> 01:14:12

If I send is it tried to think that it was written?

01:14:13 --> 01:14:20

If our sins are written, does that mean that it goes it will go to * and who will go to heaven in the very beginning?

01:14:22 --> 01:14:28

Okay, very, very good question. Actually, very good question that allows me to preserve all of us upon the truth

01:14:29 --> 01:14:59

in Allah subhanaw taala, to our knowledge, those creations that can think and analyze and make a decision, you know, that have occurred they use it in the way we're using it are three human beings, Angels and Demons. And those Allah's Mattila created them in the way they don't have that free will to go against Allah subhanaw taala didn't go against Allah. Whether we say they have the free will or didn't have but Allah created them in the way didn't go against him. And you have

01:15:00 --> 01:15:07

The last two human beings and the genes. These are the ones that are created by Allah smarter to have free will to choose what to do.

01:15:08 --> 01:15:21

When you do something, Allah is not forcing you to do it. When you stay away from something Allah is not the one who is forcing you to stay away from it. This is absolutely your choice, you are the one who is choosing to do it or not to do it.

01:15:22 --> 01:15:59

So what is written in the cutter? What is written in the color of Allah subhanaw taala our choices until the Day of Judgment, what Abraham is going to choose, for instance, Allah knows. And he wrote that knowledge of his, in the book of local baffles that Abraham is going to choose to be delivering this lecture at this moment. So Allah Smita has written my choice. It's not that to say that Allah subhanaw taala already picked up those people who are going to paradise whether you like it or either like or you choose Allah and choose Allah, you're going to go to that choice. Allah did not make it in that way. But since Allah smarter created us and I wish I wish you're going to pay

01:15:59 --> 01:16:24

attention, I mean, you will be paying attention to this. It says Allah smart Allah created us in the way we can choose, we can deny we can reject, you know, and he knows our choices, you know. So based on what we are going to choose in the future, Allah smarter decreed who will be going to paradise who will who will be going to help, because Allah knows 50,000 years before the creation of the universe, Allah subhanaw taala knows that frown will never choose to obey Musa alayhis salam

01:16:26 --> 01:16:54

around will never choose to obey Musa and Allah knows that Abu Bakr will accept Islam and be very dedicated and Allah knows that Abuja Hall will never accept Islam. Allah Allah knows that carry mean a nurse will choose to commit sin at this moment. So these knowledge is this the knowledge of Allah smarter has been written about our choices, there is no contradiction at all. So if I commit sin, I cannot say this is cutter of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is wrong.

01:16:56 --> 01:17:01

I cannot use the cutter you know to say that yes, because of the cutter, I commit a sin, this is wrong.

01:17:03 --> 01:17:39

This is my choice. And Allah Sparta knows my choice and he has written that I'm going to choose to commit sin. But if somebody blamed me, okay, pay attention to this. If somebody blamed me after I repented, you know, when I commit the sin and I repented, and then somebody come on, tell me, Ibrahim, how come you are so on and so on, you're committing the sin, I can tell him that was the creator of Allah subhanho wa Taala because I already repented. That's why the scholars said, and teachers we will cover by the Toba sahih, you use the cuddle to quieten, to stop somebody who's blaming you after you repent to Allah subhanaw taala is correct.

01:17:41 --> 01:17:45

When somebody comes to me and tell me, why do you why are you committed the sin?

01:17:46 --> 01:18:23

And then I tell him, if Allah did not write it, I will not be able to commit the sin. This is very wrong. And this against the concept is against the belief. This is against the common sense because if this is the case, then why do Allah subhanaw taala asked me to stay away from it if I don't have a choice. In the Quran, Allah says don't in the Quran, Allah says do if I do not have a choice? Why is it possible for Allah smarter to command me to do or not to do something? That's against the common sense. So when I get the command from Allah subhanaw taala, that I am commanded to pray, I am commanded to fast I'm commanded by Allah subhanaw taala to do this and that and to stay away from

01:18:23 --> 01:18:57

this and that, that means I do have a choice. I have a choice to say no. So what is written in the law? homophones is the knowledge of Allah smarter of our choices in the future, whatever we are going to choose to do Allah smarter has written it and since he is the all know when his knowledge can never be wrong, because he knows Abraham will never choose anything except this one that he's he's doing right now. To get an idea, and based on our choices, that law smarter knows, then he categorized people according to their, their, their positions in paradise own *, because these ones he knows that they will never choose paradise, they will never choose the right way. So Allah

01:18:57 --> 01:19:15

has monitor already put them among those people who are going to * based on what based on their choices. So that's the best way to to address it. So just to fix that thing that I have mentioned, I'm going to repeat it so that you can understand it properly. You cannot say I'm committing sin because Allah subhanaw taala decreed.

01:19:16 --> 01:19:59

I have to commit sin because if it is not decreed upon me, I will never go for it. This is wrong. But if somebody blame you for the commission of a sin that you already repented, you can tell them yes, this is the cutter of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is what happened exactly between Musa and Adam Musa alayhis salam blamed Adam, he said Because of you we are suffering nowadays. If you are patient, and you do not eat from the tree, Allah subhanaw taala will never took us, you know, down the earth. You know, Adam told him, how can you blame me upon something that Allah is smarter has already decreed that I'm going to do it 50,000 years ago, he knows that it won't happen because

01:19:59 --> 01:20:00

Adam already

01:20:00 --> 01:20:03

He repented and Musa came and blamed him for that.

01:20:04 --> 01:20:46

To get idea, so this is how we should look at it, you know? So if you do this and this is your choice, if you do the righteousness, this is your choice. That's why those people who are saying that we're doing this because of the other evidence not decreed for us we will never do it. I will tell them also the following. Why can't you do the good thing and see this is what Allah smarter has decreed for me. Somebody stole something and omit it. Even a Khattab is going to cut off his hand because he saw so the man said to Omar, how can you cut off my hand for doing something which Allah smarter has already written it for me? You know, it is either of Allah subhanaw taala How can you

01:20:46 --> 01:21:01

cut off my hand because of doing something which is part of the cutter of Allah Subhan Allah He forgot he was dealing with Amara de Laval. Omar told him yes, you are right, it was written that you're going to steal. And it is also written that we are going to cut off your hand

01:21:03 --> 01:21:07

cutter which he said was written and it was also written that we're going to cut off your hand.

01:21:08 --> 01:21:42

So you cannot use cutter to justify your sin. This is wrong. That's the reason why Allah smart Allah tells you stay away from this stay away from that because you have free will to choose what to do. So Brian says Let us understand this concept properly. The best way to understand clutter is to be busy doing that which Allah smart will ask you to do. And stay away from anything that Allah smart will ask you to stay away from it and believe that whatever happens to you if it has already happened, then you know that this is decreed by Allah subhanaw taala when it happened, you don't bring it by yourself. But when it's happened, you know that this is decreed by Allah subhanho wa

01:21:42 --> 01:21:45

Taala upon your BarakAllahu ego

01:21:48 --> 01:21:51

yes Feras this is a this is the last one he said right.

01:21:53 --> 01:21:54

This is

01:21:56 --> 01:21:57

a radical Ahikam

01:21:59 --> 01:22:37
