The prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam asked his companions

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

a very good question.

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

How would you describe the joy and happiness

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

of the following person?

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

Someone who was traveling on a camel,

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

loaded with food and water, but the destination

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

was far away and the process was very

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

rough. It was an open desert, empty, barren,

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

no trees, no living beings, no water, no

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

well, very harsh conditions.

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

So while he was traveling at one point

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

he told himself,

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

I will go under a tree and rest.

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

While he was resting, what happened? He fell

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

asleep.

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

As he was sleeping

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

the camel with all the food and drink

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

somehow

00:00:41--> 00:00:44

the reins, the rope got loosened up and

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

it left the man, Allahu Akbar.

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

Eventually after some time that man woke up.

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

When he woke up, where's the camel?

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

Right and left back. Where's the camel? This

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

is a dream? Nah. It's not a dream.

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

The camel's where? So he got so scared.

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

He panicked. He searched. The prophet

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

said this man, he went all the way

00:01:03--> 00:01:06

to one direction, so far away, looking for

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

the camel. Where is it? He did not

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

find it. Went to a second direction as

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

far as he can looking around it. Where's

00:01:11--> 00:01:13

the camel? No camel. Went to a third

00:01:13--> 00:01:16

direction searching for the camel but he did

00:01:16--> 00:01:17

not find anything.

00:01:17--> 00:01:19

This man was so exhausted

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

sweating

00:01:20--> 00:01:23

thirsty the heat of the sun. Oh it

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

was so bad to the point he exhausted

00:01:26--> 00:01:28

all the means and all the energy that

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

he gave up. What do you mean he

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

gave up? He gave up on his life.

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

He gave up on finding the camel and

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

he told himself, I will go to the

00:01:35--> 00:01:38

place I was at and sit until I

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

die. That's how bad the situation.

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

That's how hopeless he was brothers and sisters.

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

Now remember the question, how happy he will

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

be in the following situation?

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

As he was sitting

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

and he placed his head on his arm

00:01:51--> 00:01:53

and while he was doing that he dozed

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

off and he slept.

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

While he was sleeping who came the camel

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

Allahu Akbar and look how it came It

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

came so close to him that the reins

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

or the rope around the camel came next

00:02:05--> 00:02:08

to his hand, Allahu Akbar. Then

00:02:08--> 00:02:09

he

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

opened up his eyes, he looked and he

00:02:11--> 00:02:14

saw the camel, Allahu Akbar. He grabbed the

00:02:14--> 00:02:17

reins of the camel and then he went

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

and he said, Allah oh Allah

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

you are my slave. Hold on don't judge

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

me that was he what he said. Yes

00:02:24--> 00:02:25

he said that. Oh Allah

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

you are my slave and I am your

00:02:29--> 00:02:30

lord. The prophet said

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

this man made a mistake

00:02:33--> 00:02:36

for how happy he was. The Sahaba said,

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

yes. We can definitely answer the question by

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

saying this man was so happy

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

unlike any other situation in the world pretty

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

much. So then ready for this? The prophet

00:02:46--> 00:02:49

sallallahu alaihi wasallam said,

00:02:50--> 00:02:53

Allah is happier when his servant repents and

00:02:53--> 00:02:55

asks Allah's forgiveness

00:02:55--> 00:02:58

more than that man who found his camel

00:02:58--> 00:03:01

and belongings. Allahu Akbar. So, yes, repent to

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

Allah because you fear Allah's punishment. Repent to

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

Allah because you wanna start a new page,

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

but also repent to Allah

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

so Allah can be happy.

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

May Allah allow us to be of those

00:03:11--> 00:03:13

us all.

00:03:11--> 00:03:13

us all.
