Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah
My brothers and sisters, talking about making dua and having faith that Allah subhanaw taala will give us what is good for us and will give us at a time that is best for us. Allah subhanaw taala reminded us and Allah subhanaw taala said
wasa and taka, Hosea will walk or you will look, what Assa and Bucha will whichever level well now we want to let Allahu Allah said which means, it is possible that you dislike something, but there is benefit in it for you. And it is possible that you like something and there is harm in it for you. And Allah knows and you do not know.
Don't think this requires great explanation. We have it in our lives all the time.
Almost by default, everything which is of long term benefit
in the short term seems to be difficult and painful and tough.
Whether it is maintaining a healthy weight, whether it is a healthy diet,
whether it is exercise, whether it is reading, whether it is competence, development,
whether it is controlling your speech and your emotions,
whatever it is,
anything of long term benefit almost by default, means short term pain, no pain, no gain.
Allah is saying it is possible to dislike something so now when we make this dua, we are making dua for things we like what Allah's Radha is saying, it is possible that these may not be for you may not be the best thing for you.
So when we have faith and Iman in Allah subhanaw taala, we still make dua, obviously, nobody makes dua for something just like you make dua for something you like, but you have faith that Allah subhanaw taala what he gives you is what is best for you. So you're not dissatisfied. When you do not get what you have asked for. This is the reason why.
One of the servers Allah when
he said to have his one of the classical scholars, and one of our premium, pious predecessors.
He said, When I ask Allah for something, and I get it, I'm very happy, obviously. But when I asked for a love for something, and I get something else, including not getting what I want, I'm 10 times as happy. They asked him why is that? He said, because when I asked Allah and Allah gives me I got what I wanted.
But when I asked Allah and Allah gives me something else, or Allah denies what I have asked for, then I am getting what my Rob wants for me. So obviously, if Allah has given me what he wants me to have, then that is something which I am much more happy about.
But remember, these things are easy to quote, but for us to develop a kind of heart and a kind of mind, which accepts this shows our image
and that is why Ramadan comes Ramadan comes to inculcate in ourselves, the spirit of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala.
Moving even if necessary, moving for moving from obeying because Allah said so therefore it is a home therefore I do to doing it out of genuine love for Allah subhanaw taala
I do it not only because Allah said so I am doing it because I love my agenda.
When you do something for the love of Allah subhanaw taala then remember all the difficulty and pain with it. Because
this is true of anything you do out of love. It ceases to be difficult. It ceases to appear to be painful.
You enjoy doing it. Imagine doing this follows monitor.
Let us reflect on this and inculcate this in our lives. That we obey Allah subhanaw taala not only because it's not only because there may be in some cases they punish but associated with disobedience. But we obey Allah out of the love for Allah subhanho wa Taala because we want to please Allah subhanaw taala and we want Allah to be pleased with us. And that is why we are where
we ask Allah subhanaw taala to bring our hearts in submission to Him to His majesty and glory and to eliminate them with that
