Villa Rama Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Shafi via Eva mousseline Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Haile he right Ali, he was able to sell them to Steven cathedra and cathedra, from Abu, my brothers and sisters,

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

you know, one of the

00:00:20--> 00:00:30

characteristics of our modern culture and society, is this emphasis on being popular on popularity

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

in one form or the other, do you have friends in school? Do you have friends in college

00:00:38--> 00:01:11

popularity on social media or whichever channels and if you are any media content creator, then how many likes did you get and what not all kinds of stuff. So, popularity, popularity is the thing, right? So, this is a characteristic of our times is we want to be popular in that context, we want to be among the many. So, if you ask if you tell somebody if you find somebody doing something wrong, and you if you try to point that out, they say why, you know, I'm not the only one.

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

Everybody does it.

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

So, what if I do it?

00:01:18--> 00:01:22

Right, this is the usual sort of, excuse you get.

00:01:23--> 00:01:28

Now, I want you to think about this and I want myself and you to think about

00:01:32--> 00:01:47

one day said an hour and a half out of the law, no, he was walking in the market and he found his a man who was making dua and is in demand said oh Allah make us of your few.

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

Make us of your few.

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

So,

00:01:56--> 00:02:09

say that our other Ron who was very particular about these things, you know, and people make midwives and they does things used always asked me he said, he said, Where did you get this from makers of the few wars this few.

00:02:12--> 00:02:17

So the man said Allah subhanho wa taala. In his book, he says, We're Karela mineralia Shako

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

Allah subhanaw taala said,

00:02:22--> 00:02:27

only a few among the herba among the slaves of Allah are grateful

00:02:30--> 00:02:38

for was amazing man. You know, the general impression about our is that he was a big tough man he was he was the victim of the professional wrestler, he was huge.

00:02:39--> 00:02:44

But also he had a very, very soft heart and send an order that I know would weep.

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

So you wept he cried. And he said so Allah He said, Yeah, I want

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

everyone in the world has more knowledge than you

00:02:58--> 00:02:59

now think about this.

00:03:02--> 00:03:06

As I said, when you tell someone don't do this thing they say Oh, I'm not the only one.

00:03:08--> 00:03:14

Think about the Look at this. Now if you say popular most actor

00:03:15--> 00:03:18

see what Allah subhanaw taala says with regard to

00:03:19--> 00:03:29

the axle, most people unless your IRA doesn't well I can accept a nasty lie Allah. Allah said but most people don't know most people are ignorant.

00:03:30--> 00:04:20

The majority are ignorant people who do not know that Allah is rotten in Hola Hola. Hola. Oh fondling Allah NASCI wala Qin X Sara nasty lash guru. Allah says Allah Subhana Allah Allah does his follow. Allah gives his blessing to people, but most people are ungrateful. Allah subhanaw taala said in whole hubco mere rabbinic Wallach, in Accra Nathie let you know Allah Subhana Allah has said this is true and the truth is Allah the truth comes from Allah subhanho data, the message that you are conveying ya rasool Allah says Allah is the truth, but most people don't believe so most people are giant most people are ignorant. Most people are ungrateful, most people do not believe. And then

00:04:20--> 00:04:40

Allah swelter as it were, I can accept a come first the whole Allah said most of you are far 16 which is deliberately you do wrong, you know it is wrong, you still do wrong, you are rebellious. Allah Azza Walla Walla can accept a home Yes, hello. Most of them are jarhead.

00:04:42--> 00:04:54

But ignorant is not just a matter of jail is not just a matter of not having knowledge. Jail is to do things of Jehovah to do despicable and bad things, unless rather than has it

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

been a bad actor home. Yah, Ala Moana haka for her memorial.

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

If Allah said most of them most people they know the truth but they turn away.

00:05:06--> 00:05:07

They will not believe.

00:05:09--> 00:05:21

They know that idol worship is wrong they know that telling lies is wrong. They know that Zina is wrong, they know that boring, uninteresting is wrong interspace dealings are wrong, they know that giving and taking bribes is wrong, they know all of this stuff,

00:05:22--> 00:05:25

but they still do it, they turn away from the path of luck.

00:05:28--> 00:05:29

So be of the few,

00:05:30--> 00:05:58

stop chasing the many, the many are not worth chasing, be of the few who are the few wanted Alaska say what the view Allah said, which I decided before. Welcome Hello Mineva do Shaco few of my slaves are grateful. Let us be among those who are grateful to Allah subhanaw taala make sure that we consciously tank Allah subhanho wa Taala every single day in tahajjud every day make it this rule for yourself. Thank Allah for at least one thing.

00:06:01--> 00:06:43

She has decided in the in the in the sub went out to an amateur Lai La Torre saw her and also said if you want to count the blessings of Allah you will not be able to count and Allah is Witness why this is so true. So what you do is every day in the huddle, in soju tank, Allah subhanaw taala for one thing that he blessed you with. For each one I was at a different time. Think of that one thing, maybe it's a person, maybe it's knowledge, maybe it's some ability, whatnot. One thing that you have to be grateful for thank Allah subhanaw taala for this, there was an amazing piece of research they did with people with with a depression. And this is you know, Baba and depression in the University

So they had a control group who they took them off all antidepressants, and they put them on a regimen they said every day, they give them a notebook is every day write down 10 things that you need to be grateful for 10 things in your life that you are grateful for. That's it, no medication.

00:07:14--> 00:07:18

And in one month, they found that these people were better than the people on medication.

00:07:19--> 00:07:34

Just by thinking of things which they're grateful for completely changes your mindset makes you positive makes you happy hamdulillah and especially in today's world, and especially because we are bombarded with bad news from everywhere.

00:07:35--> 00:07:59

How many countries in the world can use I have a situation where like now there are over 100 of you most of them Allah bless you and accept your coming more than 100 review.
