Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. So today on to reflect again on a self held principle from Islamic perspective. And that's something you're very often in the field of self confidence, right? I myself have written a book on self confidence, and just to share it with your test of creation and Islamic Microsoft conference. And one of the reasons I wrote a book on this topic, is because many of the books are written from a secular perspective on this topic, include principles which are actually an Islamic, right, a dictionary executive one today and that one is often yours in the field of self confidence, that you are the captain of your

00:00:40--> 00:01:19

own ship, you are in charge of your own destiny. This is not accurate from an Islamic perspective. I mean, this actually contradicts our theology, our Akita as Muslims, because we have a belief in God in destiny in Allah subhanho wa Taala, being in control of everything. And so for us to adapt this principle that we are in charge of our own destiny, this is an Islamic This is something that directly contradicts our theology, our Arpita. So yes, if somebody had to tell me, you are the captain of your own ship, I would say yes, I'm the captain of my own ship, but a lot controls the ocean, he controls the waves, I did some things that's beyond our control. So the Islamic

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

perspective is, there are certain things which are within our control, and certain things which are not. And the Islamic way to build confidence is to combine personal effort, with good expectations, with the worker with trust in Allah, with acceptance of other with accepting your destiny. When you combine these factors, and you throw into it as well asking a lot for assistance, then you can approach any project with confidence. Right? So it's a very different framework from how the non Muslims approach, self confidence. You know, the eye, the Dave approach is very individualistic, it's all about me, I can do it. I have the ability, I'm capable, I can accomplish anything. Our

00:02:02--> 00:02:43

perspective is all about Allah subhanho wa Taala. with Allah's help, I can do this, if Allah wills, I can do that. But unless assistance, anything is possible, it's a very different dynamic. And it's a much better dynamic, because if things don't go your way, and you had this wrong belief that it's all about you and everything's on you, then this can be really soul crushing, that I feel what happened, you know, it can be a matter of, I'm not good enough. But when you have belief in color, and things don't go your way, color, Allah Masha, Allah, Allah, Allah destiny, whatever he was happens, it must be better for me because Allah has willed it. You know, it gives you a more

00:02:43--> 00:03:24

positive way of accepting when things don't go your way. And so you just keep moving forward towards your goals, without falling into a into a form of depression, because you have accepted your order. Right? So these Islamic concepts like other accepting one's destiny tawakkol, trusting Allah, Krishna, don't be locked, having good expectations of Allah subhana wa Taala making up all of these are fundamental for building your confidence in an Islamic manner.
