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

We know that after the Prophet sallallahu sallam was persecuted,

00:00:06--> 00:00:09

and after he went to a part if

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

and he was abused and pelted with stones Alayhi Salatu was Salam.

00:00:17--> 00:00:21

He sat down and he was complaining to Allah subhanho wa taala.

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

And he said Allama you like a scuba cool what do you

00:00:27--> 00:00:30

think that the Haloti will Hawaiian? Yeah Allah nurse.

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

And this narration

00:00:34--> 00:00:38

some scholars of Hadith, say it is weak.

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

But at the same time, a lot of the

00:00:43--> 00:00:50

scholars, some scholars of Hadith and other general Islamic scholars, they

00:00:52--> 00:00:55

deduce things from this dua.

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

So the Prophet SAW Selim after he complains to Allah subhanaw taala. He says, Oh Allah, I complained to you,

00:01:04--> 00:01:15

of my weakness and strength, my inability to do anything, this is after he was persecuted. Later on, he says, In Aamir Khan Becca, Allah you

00:01:16--> 00:01:23

fell out and barely. Allah can now have your ticket. Oh, shallowly. Subhan Allah. So he says,

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

If you are not angry with me,

00:01:29--> 00:01:30

I'm not concerned.

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

But your I fear.

00:01:39--> 00:01:42

And Apphia is a very comprehensive word

00:01:43--> 00:01:50

that gives you the meaning of comfort, and safety and security in all facets of life.

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

He says this is

00:01:54--> 00:01:57

more comforting for me.

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

In other words, Oh Allah, if you are not angry with me,

00:02:03--> 00:02:04

I am not concerned.

00:02:06--> 00:02:22

But because that seems to indicate that he's saying, I don't care if you test me, as long as you're not angry with me. But then even that, he says, but Allah Afia is better for me. Alafaya from what from the tiller?

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

So even then,

00:02:26--> 00:02:40

not being tested in this way, is better. And we are human beings and the prophets. Allah was a human being. But this is to answer that question doesn't matter if it's a trial or punishment, the prophets of salaam wants to know.

00:02:42--> 00:02:46

If you're not angry with me, you're testing me, fine. I'm okay with that.

00:02:48--> 00:02:51

Right? But if you're angry with me,

00:02:52--> 00:03:06

then the situation might be a little bit a little bit different. So that answers the question of doesn't matter since a human feelings of how it's a human emotion, wanting to know is Allah angry with me?

00:03:08--> 00:03:10

Is Allah pleased with me?

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

So, again, as usual,

00:03:15--> 00:03:19

I hope I'm not confusing you. There's a middle path

00:03:21--> 00:03:22

of wanting to know

00:03:24--> 00:03:30

of hoping that Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with us and not angry with us but at the same time,

00:03:31--> 00:03:34

you're not going to get that absolute certainty.

00:03:36--> 00:03:45

There will remain a margin of uncertainty which in sha Allah, if you look at it, and understand it properly, will only be an incentive to do more.

00:03:46--> 00:03:48

Not to do less
