00:00:51--> 00:00:52

When we

00:00:54--> 00:00:59

feel some sickness, we go to the doctor

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

and especially these days, if

00:01:05--> 00:01:22

someone tells you that if you're feeling fatigue, headaches, sore throat, make sure go and check for COVID These are all symptoms of you may be having COVID.

00:01:24--> 00:01:32

Well, are there symptoms to indicate that I have weak Eman?

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

Are there symptoms

00:01:36--> 00:01:54

of weak faith? And the answer is yes. And in sha Allah Tala, today we will be discussing seven symptoms of we weak Imagine if I see any of these symptoms

00:01:55--> 00:02:01

or if I am going through any of these symptoms, I should immediately

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

pay attention and try to

00:02:06--> 00:02:14

fix this problem and increase my faith in Allah Azada

00:02:15--> 00:02:16

the first symptom

00:02:18--> 00:02:21

when we start committing sins

00:02:22--> 00:02:31

and not feeling anything that's a sign that the Eman is weak.

00:02:32--> 00:02:37

committing sins without any remorse without any regret.

00:02:38--> 00:02:49

I drink doesn't mean anything I miss Zoomer does not mean anything I see haram happening in front of me does not mean anything Subhan Allah

00:02:51--> 00:03:31

that is an indication that the Eman is weak Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said could lumati Martha, all my man could possibly be forgiven except the one who openly openly commit sins because we commit sins, but we regret it ya Allah why did I do that? How? What was I thinking? And we immediately ask Allah for us to fulfill for forgiveness, we we commit, we say we do Tober but a person who does not feel anything after committing a sin, that's a sign of weak. Iman.

00:03:33--> 00:03:41

My brothers and sisters, even miss old are the Allahu and he said the believer sees his sins as a mountain on his back.

00:03:42--> 00:03:59

Very heavy load how you know, he feels like he cannot wait to to ask Allah to forgive him and remove that loan. And he said, The while the sinner he feels the sense as if as if they are a flying a passing fly.

00:04:00--> 00:04:21

And he just he says such and such to it to remove it. He doesn't care. Just like you know, this is how since how the center feel about the sense don't mean nothing to him. When we reach that level, we have to be very cautious that something's wrong with our iman.

00:04:22--> 00:04:48

The true believer, the minute he or she commits a sin, they feel so bad. Allah subhanaw taala said we're Latina either alfalfa hay Schatten or vellamo. And for some the karula the stuffer only then will be him once a year with the Aruba Ilala. The true believers are the ones when they commit a sin. Even a tour could be a major sin immediately they make a safar and they remember ALLAH

00:04:49--> 00:05:00

and they will not be persistent on on that sin. That's the first sign. The second sign the harshness of the heart. The heart is sustained.

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

It's hard.

00:05:02--> 00:05:19

You listen to lectures. You listen to Juma chutzpah, you listen even to the Quran and nothing moves doesn't mean anything to you. No tear will shed no action will be taken after the hook by nothing, nothing. You even see

00:05:20--> 00:05:27

our Muslim brothers and sisters suffering all over the world and that does not even shake you.

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

That's a major sign that

00:05:32--> 00:05:47

the color is Kasi. The heart is very hard and that's an indication of the weakness of Amen Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told us that the Muslims are like

00:05:49--> 00:05:52

one body if one part of it aches.

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

The whole body stays up

00:05:59--> 00:06:09

in pain Subhanallah so when I do not feel anything with my brothers and sisters that are suffering all over the world, I do not even make it to

00:06:11--> 00:06:15

the DUA is heavy to perform. Then that's a sign of

00:06:17--> 00:06:18

of weakness of Eman.

00:06:20--> 00:06:23

I am bored in the salaat i

00:06:26--> 00:06:45

Even though I can spend hours on social media, but when it comes to solid when it comes to Quran immediately I feel tired I start yawning that all our signs of weakness of iman, third sign arrogance.

00:06:46--> 00:06:47

Our Deen

00:06:48--> 00:07:00

taught us a humility. Our Deen taught us to be very humble. So when I start feeling that I am better than others, I don't belong with these poor people.

00:07:01--> 00:07:20

I feel like I am. I have certain privileges more than anyone around me. All these are signs that a person a person's Eman is very weak

00:07:21--> 00:07:40

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He told us that if someone has a mustard seed of arrogance in their heart, they will not go to Jannah Allahu Akbar. Arrogance is a major disease and a major indication that our Eman is weak.

00:07:41--> 00:08:29

Fourth sign still stinginess. stinginess is a major sign of weakness of Eman. Why, because Allah azza wa jal in the Quran in many eight have encouraged us and told us to spend from what he has given us. All that wealth we have is from Allah subhanho wa taala. So when Allah subhanaw taala, always telling us enviable, enviable and the one who spent for the sake of Allah this way, he will get this and she will get that and then the person is stingy. That means he does not believe in the promise of Allah that indicates that the man is weak. And there's so much Salam said in the Hadith, that stinginess and Eman cannot dwell in the same heart.

00:08:31--> 00:08:37

One of them will kick the other Eman will kick the stinginess or the stinginess, will kick the Eman.

00:08:38--> 00:08:39


00:08:40--> 00:08:51

stringiness is a disease and if someone is stingy, he's definitely have a major weakness

00:08:52--> 00:08:54

in his or her Eman?

00:08:56--> 00:09:07

The symptom number five if you have it will indicate that you have weakness of Eman is feeling envious and jealous of other people's blessings.

00:09:10--> 00:09:23

Feeling envious of other people's blessings? A person with a strong faith knows that Allah azza wa jal bestows His blessings upon whomsoever He wishes. When I

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

complain, why do they have that big house why their children are so good? Why is she having such a nice husband? Why I'm always complaining about my status and envious of others. I'm envious of others. That means I am accusing Allah stuffer Allah of being not fair. My Eman is weak. That indicates that a man is weak. And same thing goes to Hadith that Eman and hazard. Eman and envy do not exist in the heart of a true believer. So the fifth symptom

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

And that we have weakness of faith is that being envious and jealous of other people's blessings.

00:10:11--> 00:10:12

Symptom number six.

00:10:15--> 00:10:20

Feeling very lazy when it comes to the acts of worship.

00:10:22--> 00:10:26

Feeling very lazy when it comes specifically to Salaat

00:10:28--> 00:10:34

either como la sala de comme vous salah. And when they get up to pray, they are very lazy.

00:10:35--> 00:11:01

They don't want to pray and even in the prayer, they don't know anything. They do not know what they're saying. They cannot wait for it to finish they have no clue what the Imam recited. They, they have no interest in the in the Iboga they have no interest in fasting, even the DUA and they're making it so quick rather than ripen, then they get up no interest whatsoever. All these are indications of weakness of faith, my brother my sister.

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


00:11:05--> 00:11:14

ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala told us that a sign of Nefab a sign of hypocrisy is that being lazy and performing solid.

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

So Subhanallah

00:11:19--> 00:11:34

when I feel that the Rebbe that the acts of worship are very heavy for me to perform. That's a sign of weakness of faith. And subhanAllah we have a very clear evidence.

00:11:35--> 00:12:09

And the formula is the more I perform acts of worship, the higher is my Eman? What's the evidence? Look in Ramadan? And Ramadan? I am fasting we fast we pray tahajjud we read a lot of Quran all these are extras than the normal other months. Right. So the Eman I'm performing more a Baghdad so all of a sudden it is the same imam in my misery that is reciting he is reciting the same Quran but now I'm crying.

00:12:10--> 00:12:23

I am I'm tearing I feel something different inside of me SubhanAllah. That's an indication that the more a Baghdad I do, the higher my Eman is. So

00:12:24--> 00:13:04

on the flip side, the lesser a buy that I perform the weak is the weaker is my image. So if I feel very heavy to pray for Azure to pray a shirt, to pray this to pray that I feel very hard to donate it it feels very hard to fast. I'm not talking about health issues. In general, any kind of a bad reading the Quran one page, I don't even feel like reading. And I can read books. I can read a book 1000 pages in one day. But to open the Quran and read one page or two pages. It is very heavy. That's an indication of weakness of email, my brother, my sister.

00:13:05--> 00:13:06

And the last one

00:13:08--> 00:13:14

is extreme panic, when a calamity takes place.

00:13:15--> 00:13:36

We all go through hardships and problems. All of a sudden you get a message your son got into a car accident. Your house is on fire. You lost your job. How do you react to these things are an indication is a thermometer is a measurement of your iman.

00:13:37--> 00:14:30

Allah subhanaw taala told us in Surah Baqarah when Medina is a Sabaton masiva Carlu in Kerala, we're in a theological whomsoever is hit by calamity, they say we belong to Allah and to Allah, we shall return. This is the statement that every true believer should say when they are hit by a calamity. But when someone says complain, why and start screaming and panicking and I pray and I give money, why is this happening to me and no, no, no, that's an indication of weakness of Eman. We all know that whatever Allah decreed to us, even though sometimes it looks very, very hard. We as believers know that Allah only decrees higher whether we see it or not. So the higher my Eman the easier the

00:14:30--> 00:14:33

effect of the calamity upon me.

00:14:34--> 00:14:44

And exactly the opposite. The weaker is the Eman the weaker the man is, the tougher the impact of the calamity.

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

So my brothers and sisters, these are seven symptoms. If you have all of them, then you have a lot of weakness of image. If you have one or two of them, then your image is weak in that aspect and we have to fix it. So in sha

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

Allah Allah, there will be a follow up episode of What are the reasons of having weak Eman and absolutely also, what is the cure of the weakness of iman? May Allah subhanaw taala strengthen our iman May Allah azza wa jal make our last deeds, our best deeds and make our last words La ilaha illallah I love you all for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah Allah, masha Allah Allah Allah and a stuffy Roca Manitoba Nick
