Mohammedan Ando rasuluh
allama Sunday we'll send him a letter using
me to sell him to see when can
we start now what sort of evil are him, so let's call him as soon as named after Prophet Ibrahim a salon. Because towards the end last Platinum mentions the example of Ibrahim alayhis salaam as the, the role model to be followed to be followed.
The solo starts again with three letters, the three separate letters,
l Macaca. And if
and we spoke previously about this and we said that the meaning of these
letters and what's intended by them, the ultimate meaning is known to Allah subhanaw taala. But scholars have to sail they have figured out some wisdoms, and some points behind some of the some of the sources starting with such letters. And we said amongst the most obvious, is the fact that the Quran is made of simple Arabic letters. And if meme and Islam
has mean these nudges, and this plan that is miraculous, and humans cannot come up with anything like it, it is made from from these simple Arabic letters, it's pure Arabic language. And there's a challenge there for someone to come up with something similar to the on using any of the Arabic alphabet.
And last valentinus starts to the sooner clearly that it's about the Quran. It's about the message and the mission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this is all I really talks about the mission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, we will see everything that's mentioned the sort of Ibrahim actually addresses the mission of the prophet SAW Selim from some angle. So last starts by saying keytab on Angela Hill, a little region NASA Mina Bulu Mati Eleanor even Arab beam in our Surat Al Aziz in honey.
So I was talking about the book, which is all on GitHub, and Angelina has a book that we revealed or we sent down unto you, or Mohammed. So we know the Quran is sent from Allah. Quran is sent from Allah subhanho wa Taala, down onto Earth on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and visionaries indication here that the pull on the Koran is from Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning it's the words of Allah. It's the words of Allah that are not like the Morteza and some deviant sects claim that the Quran is a creation. The Quran was a creation, that's a false idea. That's a false belief. It was started mainly by Tesla. And
and there was a big issue about this, there was a big issue. So the Quran was originated by Allah as his own words, as his own words, and that's what we Muslims believe upon. Because the Muslim scholars, the scholars of Anderson, they have a consensus Ah, man, that statement or anyone who claims or says that the Koran is a creation, this statement in itself is confirmed is a blast is blasphemy. it constitutes Kufa within itself. So we know the Koran is the words of Allah as the last ones. Allah says, when I had a minute mushy, keenest Angelica, as your who is McCallum, Allah, and if any of those polytheists of the Arabian Peninsula, that you seek your protection, they seek
refuge in You or Mohammed, then give them protection, provide them with protection until they get to a point where they hear the Kalam Allah, the words of Allah, the speech of Allah. So the Quran is the speech of Allah is not the creation, the Martinez say, they say the whole on his meanings that were with Allah. And then Allah created words
at the tongue of jabril.
And these words harbor the meanings that Allah has to himself. That's a very philosophical, wrong, false Akita. People assume that they know the Quran is the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Kitab on ans Allahu La Liga, a Koran rulebook that we sent down unto you or Muhammad, and then allow mentions the purpose why he sent down the Quran and that summarizes the mission of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He took region NASS Amina Bulu Mati Elan No, so that you take people from darkness into light. That's the mission of the Prophet saws Allah and any day any scholar
who claimed to be contributing to this mission? Their job and their goal has to be to take people from darkness into light, from darkness into light. That's the mission of the prophet SAW Selim and his followers take people from darkness into light, similar meaning was mentioned.
In the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah says For example, source added, who will lead the unit zero Allah IV. Begin at in the fridge akumina boo Mattila know, Allah, he's the one who sends down upon his servant and that's the Prophet sallallahu Sallam a addin v net verses that are clear.
And there are clear signs from last month Allah to take you out from darkness into light to take you from darkness into light and the last one isn't Salatu bacara Allahu Allah, you're letting me know your creed your home in Abu matita No, Allah is the Guardian, the Helper, the protector of the believers, he takes them home, he takes them from darkness whenever lamattina no two lights. And for those who remember, I've said this so many times, the Koran is often or the revelation of Islam itself is often resembled or is over is often given the parable or the metaphor of light. That's why we said the mission of the prophet SAW Salaam can be summarized in two things. Light, it brings
light to people and brings life light and life and this is mentioned in sort of a last minute Allah says
a woman can I meet and
well, you know on the MGB Venus karma, my fellow boo boo Mati Lisa Bihari Jimena.
Allah Singh, is the one who was dead, or had been dead, but to whom we gave life someone had been dead, but we gave him life. So we brought him from death to life. What do you know, that's life, which Allah Who knew on the MGB evenness, and we gave him light, exclusive light, with which he finds his path among others, that means others are in darkness. But this person has been given lights with which he finds the path.
him she behave in a common method.
Like someone who is in darkness, and was unable to get out of this darkness. So Alize is summarizing the revelation, or the religion of Islam as into things life and light, life of the heart, and light, it's the knowledge that shows you right from wrong truth from falsehood.
And that's what the prophet SAW sent him we said was sent to do, that's what the person was sent to fulfill in people, give them life, and give them light. But there are people who reject
the life and the light. And there is a secret, there is a secret.
the heart does not get the spark of life,
it's not receptive to the light.
If the heart does not receive the spark of life, that comes from Revelation, it stops or ceases becoming receptive is not receptive to the knowledge. It's not receptive to the knowledge
or the light.
And this can be found
in a comparison between two verses as well.
And this is something I also spoke about previously, they went to Las panatela talks about life giving life to the heart, this is this gear.
This is this key. And when a lot talks about knowledge and teaching,
That's light. So you will find a lot of a lot of speaking about the mission of the prophets of Allah you send them in Salatin. bokhara three times in the Quran. Allah mentions this saltimbocca last month and it says, who will be
chosen Juma? who led by basophil Amina Rasulullah Minh home, yet Allah Him He will use a key him Lima and use a key. This key is a key him, your aluminum teaches them. This key is to give life to the heart. Your aluminum is to give light to the heart which is knowledge. Now
where do we get the proof in the Quran, that if the heart does not get the spark of life, it cannot receive knowledge because then the heart a dead heart cannot receive knowledge. So you have to give it the spark of life in order for it spiritual life in order for it to become receptive to knowledge. Allah subhanaw taala talks about Ibrahim and he sermons
that go he made a dua Allah
yet to allow him a a tick or a loss and among them a messenger from amongst themselves, who conveys the message relates your verses. It's grown in it. That's the general, you know, duty of every messenger. But the professor was supposed to achieve two things by him and he sent me He says, Yes, we are looking at where you are unlimited Al Kitab our hikma we use a cane. He teaches them your limo home, Akita bought the book and wisdom waves the key him and gives them teskey Ibrahim a sermon he made he put knowledge before this key
knowledge before teskey meaning he put lights before life. So when Allah subhanaw taala responded,
Allah says left admin Allahu la mina is
the same source in Baccarat shortly after Allah says leopard men Allahu Allah mamina is better for him. La Suleiman emphasis Allah has blessed his sins, bless His blessings upon the believers.
If battlefield lost stolen, in the sense that he sent among them a messenger from amongst themselves a solar rather than receiving unfussy him yet through Allah him it conveys the message right that's the general admission by the law says about him and he seldom asked you a limo Makita about hekima we use a key
a lot of people responded how use a key him while you're aluminum Wilkie?
So Ibraheem alehissalaam asked for knowledge, he mentioned knowledge first, then teskey but when a lot of other responded to the DA and answer the drag the blame, how did he answer it? He says he sent a messenger amongst themselves conveys the message was conveyed to the verses of Allah use a key him pisky first then your alma homolka. So Allah patiska before knowledge Ischia before knowledge, because if your heart is not has not reached teskey, which is the life of the heart, you will not benefit from knowledge, you will not benefit and you will not receive it, you will not take it to heart. And if you learn it, you will abuse it is what a lot of other talks about the person
a lot smarter says what's really him number a lady at a no 18 F and seller
and seller ha meaner about shape on economy and relate to them the news about the person to whom we have given our air yet you know versus knowledge of the book. That's the previous nations he was given revelation. He was a scholar. Basically, he was a scholar who learned the revelation at the now via TNF and Salah homina. So he took himself out of that knowledge, in what sense he did not follow that knowledge,
for advice shape, and so shavonne backed him up in that process in that journey of not living by the revelation that Marcia Ivanova Can I mean, are we so he was from the wrongdoers? He was from the ones who went to stream.
While I was shooting a lot of I know we have a rockin holiday. And if we will, so Alex is talking about himself, if we will so would have raised him with this knowledge. But he chose the lowest levels, he chose the lowest levels. So there are people who might have knowledge. But if they don't have the test key, they will abuse that knowledge, they will justify What's wrong, they will justify What's wrong, and they will use it to manipulate. So this is why the proper kind of pavement or base course for knowledge is to ski ski so again
the the the proper kind of of sequence is that Allah gives
the spark of life, spiritual life to the heart, and the heart becomes receptive to knowledge. Now it wants to learn. Now it wants to learn and is able to learn when you learn.
This knowledge, this knowledge that you have learned is gonna increase that spark of life will help you move to a higher level of test key a higher level of the life of the heart. And once you get there, you're able to learn more knowledge and that is how the process goes. Hand in hand is how the process goes. So lots of banter that says the Quran when the Quran does the Quran.
Literally gymnasts, I mean Abu matrilineal karma Center, the prophet SAW Selim to get people out from darkness into light beam by the permission of the Lord. And this is why no one believes except by the permission of Allah. By the permission of Allah, it's not a mathematical process, you give someone guidance, they're going to receive it. No.
Guidance happens only by the permission of Allah. And who are the people that Allah gives guidance to the people who truly deserve it.
The people who truly deserve it, we said guidance is a gift from Allah. And who the who does Allah give it to Allah gives it only to those who deserve it. Only those who do
Ever Who are the people who deserve it? Allah knows aloneness but we have to trust in Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. Allah does not do injustice even if it's as little as an atom's Wait, Allah does not commit injustice at all, and allows them to see in a bad inhabitable enough to be in a coma trauma are my servants, I have made
injustice, oppression, I've made it forbidden for myself and I made it forbidden for you as well.
So Allah will never commit any injustice, even the lumbee him in our salon, Aziz al Hamad
Al Aziz in Hemet. So, so that you get people out of darkness into law into the light by the permission of the Lord, leading them into the path of Al Aziz and Hamid Olam instance to have his name's al Aziz. And actually al Aziz and Hamad Al Aziz is the Almighty. And as he is is the all mighty, the powerful, the one who has the mind and the power and Hamid is the one who deserves praise. And that means he deserves praise because he puts everything in its right place. So what this shows is that Allah guides those who deserve guidance. So Allah does not put the guidance where it doesn't belong.
Aziz is that those who hold on to the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala, they will be given his they will be given power, they will be given strength. There is something very interesting that number am says
it talks about the verse will last longer it says well on the edge Allah who live Katharina, LA, Nina Sabina, and Allah will never allow will never give power
for the disbelievers over the believers.
He says there are people who questioned this, they say but we have believers
and they have been subjugated by disbelievers. So how come but Allah is making a very emphatic statement. Well in the edge Allah who will Katharina Medina sabirah and Allah will never give power to the disbelievers over the believers. How come?
He says some people have this, they can't solve this issue, this scene seeming or the seeming discrepancy. For them, it seems to be contrary contradictory. But he says,
we have to see this. Or we have to read this verse properly with balance, that this depends on the level of when a person reaches the highest level of a man, this verse applies to them fully. So how this verse applies to you is proportionate to the level of your email, you have literally a man, a low level of a man. That means Allah will protect you from the people of disbelief in proportion to the level of your email.
The higher you grow in a man, the more Allah will protect you from the disbelievers. until we reach the highest level of highest levels of a man, you get to a point where the believers, the disbelievers will have no power over, you know, might over you.
That's how he says, as he says, you can read all of Islamic history. And you can see the only time the believers are subjugated or taken over by the disbelievers, you will find when they have committed great acts of disobedience towards a loss of animal time. So this is how we should and this is why sometimes by the way, this is a very important issue. Sometimes we take one statement from the whole on, we take it out of context, and we we have very simplistic understanding of it and we want it to apply like someone says, and I received this question very often. So when it says Allah says, are part of a book woman, only black woman, your Lord says,
Call me and they will answer you come. She says I've been calling upon Allah but so many things are not being answered,
is about lies, making clear steam made call upon me, they will answer you.
The usual answer is you need to see this in context. Allah is saying when you call upon Allah, Allah will answer you when everything else is also in place. There's a bigger context, you have to see it when your food and your provision is Helen. So
when your record with allies clear as well, when you record with Allah is clear, because you could ask for something. And the law doesn't give it to you because you have committed a sin. That's possible.
There's something else in context that you have to see but these are not mentioned in this context. But the wider context is there. So you have to see everything within that context that you have to automatically consider.
You might ask for something but there is a bad consequence in that thing for you.
So I was not going to respond. I was not going to give you what you asked him for. As simple as that. Why? Because it's not good for you.
That's another part of
The context then you have to see
this. That's a dangerous approach to have a very simplistic understanding to these
outside open or broad statements in the Parana The sooner
we have to be careful. And there is a famous story from Oliver Oliver we allow the people have asked him, they said, you know, we call upon a lot, he doesn't respond, but a lot promised response. I even thought I mentioned 10 reasons for them. He said, because your money is not heroin, is haram and your money. Allah doesn't respond to that. Because you guys have sinned, Allah does not respond to or law could hold back some of his responses. Because of the sense you have not put your trust in Allah when you will need. So that's not proper. And that's why you're not getting this and so on and so forth. So we have to keep in mind that things always have a context. Sometimes we're very
simplistic in our approach, and we say, oh, Allah makes the statement I made to my dryer is not answered the statement is not true. So that's a very simplistic approach. very simplistic approach.
Then our last one and it says,
a lie. He led the Lahore Murphy's somehow it will, Matthew, Catherine, I mean, I've been she says, Allah, this path of Allah, Hamid, who is Allah,
to Allah belongs, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, everything belongs to Allah, everything is the dominion of Allah. Allah has control over it over it. Allah is its owner, Allah is the one who runs it a lot of ones is the one who manages it. Don't have doubt about this. Don't have doubt about this. Then the last ones I says, were way too little caffeine. I mean, I haven't studied those who are not guided, those who refuse the guidance, those who turn away from the guidance, and thus the disbelief. For them, there will be a very severe punishment. That's a simple thing, the believers will be taken from darkness into light. And they have taken the path of
azeez, the Almighty, the one who deserves all praise, so Allah will take care of them.
And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. And those who oppose or those who disbelieve and those who reject and deny belief, simply they will have severe punishments.
End of story. That's what life is about. As simple as that so straightforward. Allah gives it you know,
straight away at the beginning of the beginning of the soul, Allah gives it upfront at the beginning of the soul, then Allah describes who are the Catherine who are the disbelievers and or what leads them to that state last month and it says Allah Dena is the head bone and higher than dunya.
We also do don't answer De La Jolla, buena Eva Allah.
Allah says, Allah reveals an aspect of these people.
They are the ones who give preference to this life of dunya over the, over the next life. And that's one of the main reasons for their belief. They give preference to this life over the next. This life is short and temporary, and limited. The algebra is eternal, endless.
above, there's abundance there, in general in the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala engine. So people who choose this over this, they will end up becoming disbelievers. That's the reason for their disbelief. Why would someone exchange the eternal, endless life with something that's temporary and limited? Why?
It seems, seems to be very obvious, extremely obvious, would you exchange 70 years, the say 100 years, actually 70, let's say 70. Because if someone lives up to 100 years, most of their old age is going to be suffering from illnesses, diseases, dependency, loneliness, and so on and so forth. So usually old age is not a is not a fun age. So let's say 70 years, let's say someone is going to enjoy their life for 70 years full blast enjoyment.
Would any human being in their right mind, choose this over an eternal life, last infinity, and eternal life of blessings.
That is far more greater than whatever you can think about in this life. And we mentioned the sort of the old woman hadn't done enough and I feel it lamotta the whole beauty, the whole enjoyment, everything that's fun, everything's as beautiful and pleasant about this life, if you combine it all together, compared to the Hereafter is just one one simple moment of pleasure.
Is there any comparison anyone the right mind would choose this life over the next?
And that's what ultimately that's what the disbelievers are doing. That's what they're doing.
And that DNA is to have been inherited dunia.
I'll ask you why so don't answer via De La Jolla, buena Eva. And not only they make choices for themselves, then they choose this life over the next. But they also want to force their choice on others. They're not happy with others choosing the hereafter over this life, they're not happy with this. And this is why you're going to find the people who are upon falsehood,
you will find a great portion of them, they're not happy with people making free choices.
They're not happy with this. If you don't choose what they choose, they will fight you.
And sometimes people fall for, you know, for, for what seems to be the case, people fall fall for appearance and for the facade. But
a lot of people who even claim that they are they champion freedom, and they support freedom. They actually go against impassive ways. They go against impassively they say okay, you have freedom of religion, you can choose right.
they are going to curb these choices through passive ways in directories. So they are passively aggressive. So they will exert social pressure upon you. Or you can choose to worship whoever you want, right. But we, you know, your neuro Muslim will label you as a terrorist.
When you are a Muslim you backward when you are a Muslim, okay? You narrow minded.
When you are a Muslim, you're just a blind follower, you're following culture, you don't have a free mind. You can't make choices for yourself. And, and so on and so forth. You know, the list of accusations, you know, extends forever, and always find something, even in terms of sexual orientation. Imagine you can't preach in so many environments, you cannot preach because that's disrespectful, if you preach, but you're going to find in, in schools, a lot of other sexual orientations are being pushed, being pushed in an outside a very aggressive way, that if you were to preach your religion the same way,
they would have issues with you. But when they preach other sexual orientations, they say, Oh, no, people have the right to know, these kids have the right to see other sexual orientations, right? Maybe they have this kind of orientation. So why would something else if I preach the same way you preach? My preaching is problematic, but yours also about freedom? That's the issue. So
oftentimes, you'll find people who are unforced or they're not happy with you following something else as well. I lost one of them that says, In the Quran repeatedly, what decade thielmann Allah kitabi that we are doing a commune by the man ecomcrew foreign hustler in fund some of the People of the Scripture, a lot of them, they wish to turn you back to disbelief. Allah said hassard and out of envy.
What is lol potty Luna tomahto documentdb comunista power law talks about the polytheists of the Arabian Peninsula, that they still fight you to push you back or to make you give up your religion and so on and so forth. even looking at sometimes you'll find just talking about sexual orientation talking about Come look on load, unload, load on a histogram did not engage in their practices.
Did they leave him alone? No. Like when he had guests. They wanted to engage in their sexual acts with his guests, where his guests were actually angels come in the form of men human being and then the people of load as well. They said a hurry do Allah Lupin milker yet you come in omona Sunita Harun.
Okay, Luke chose certain what we say straight sexual orientation for himself, right? And his followers the same. Now the download what they said, they said, kick these people out of your town. Because these people, they purify themselves. Come on What is freedom? Now, you're going to find this, you will find this. People who have something people who believe in something, they're not happy with you following something else. There are exceptions. But a lot of these exceptions as well, you will find them actually being passive in their approach. They're passively aggressive. They are passively aggressive anyway. But that's the nature of human beings because our minds think
as a claim against us. He says our minds think by means of comparison.
When you do not follow my ways.
You're basically a tacit or you are a hidden threat and
challenge to my ideas. Because when you do not follow my ways you say all my ways are not optimal.
That's how humans automatically think so this is why when you disagree with someone, they take
they take it personal.
Very few people are mature enough to be able to rise above that ego kind of game. So, we also do the Ansible. And they push others against the way of Allah, we a boon to have a word and they insist, and they make a conscious choice to follow a crooked on straight way,
on straight way, without it configurable and embodied those people are in great misguidance these people are in great misguidance.
And remember, Sandy here, he says,
The people of disbelief when he talks about you won't how he was and they seek the crooked path. He mentioned something he says. So the people of disbelief will always give a bad name to the part of the last part and they will call it names. They will try to blemish its beauty they will try to create accusations against it to make it repulsive to make it look repulsive. So people avoid it. And I mean we can see this almost everywhere.
When I also Nana Rasool in elaboration, economy, Helio
Masha, Masha, Allah says, We says, We have not sent a messenger except that he speaks the language of his people. We have not sent a messenger except that he speaks the language of his people, the language of his people, do you know him so he could clarify to them he could convey to them clearly and make the truth, clear, crisp, crystal clear for them.
And this shows the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala the wisdom of Allah Spanos Allah, that Allah sends the right people with the right tongue, with the right approach at the right time, and so on and so forth. So last month, in a sense, every message is speaking the language of their own people. And this is why it's very important for Dora, to think about this, to think about this, that when you, when you address an audience, you need to speak their language. And I'm not necessarily speaking about language in a very literal sense, like English, Arabic, French, Spanish, Hindi, Chinese, etc. I'm not talking about this, what I'm saying I'm saying, language is not only words, you know,
sometimes on a personal level, especially this happens with spouses, you can find, you can see that the spouse, like the wife, and it's understands what her husband her husband's intent, without him even saying a word. Or he might say something. But for an outsider,
they get, they get a surface meaning, but the wife of that person, she figures out a very deep meaning a very, she gets an insinuation a very far meaning. But she knows what her husband means. And this happens as well with friends. Sometimes friends have a secret language, I mean, they speak English, right? And you understand the words, but you don't understand the code. There is something there is some kind of code between friends because they have their own unique experiences their own unique history, they have developed some kind of common language, so they understand each other's code. Although they speak English, you understand every word that's being said, but you feel as a
stranger because you don't, you can't really decipher their code. That also falls within language. Because language is not only words, language is words, meanings, and there's a cultural with language. Language is a way of thinking, by the way, language is a way of thinking.
So this is very important for that one.
Very important for them. And here what I mentioned one example, which is really very important
to show you as well what language also means.
talking about 15 years ago,
this was in the west for Muslims speaking for Islam, appearing in talk shores and public platforms. Speaking for Islam. Muslim used to be asked the question, why can't you drink alcohol? Why don't you guys drink alcohol?
The common response because, you know, coming from a Muslim culture, from Muslim background, Muslim countries, the culture, their
obedience is valued.
Obedience, and compliance is valued. If you comply, to the norms to the culture, this actually shows good demeanor. It shows good demeanor, because the opposite of this is rebellion. defiance, and you're more of a renegade you looked upon as a renegade as in a negative sense. So
when you talk to a Muslim audience, you know, why don't you drink alcohol? I don't drink alcohol, but
Allah says, No, that's beautiful. That's beautiful for Muslim culture, or you are obedient. you comply with the commands of Allah.
But when you speak to a Western audience, because they have an issue of individuality, right? intellectual freedom, and so on and so forth, when you say this, and this happened, actually in the UK, someone asked to share, and they had had him on a public television, public television on her TV show, talk show. And they asked him, you know, why don't you guys drink alcohol? Or God prohibits me from drinking alcohol, so I don't drink it. I can't drink it.
And he thought he was giving a good answer, because he was speaking his own culture. But the audience made a sound that oh, you know, how the English you know, the English in the common house? They have they make objections by if you speak something that can just blew you out, right? That's they're not. So the audience went on to say, basically, stem confiscates your personal choice. You can't make choices.
That was the message they got. And it was a negative message. It was a negative message.
And that's the issue with cultures. That's the issue. And that's part of language. I would say, the ideal approach, and this is a lot of Duran, our handler are figuring this out. Is that
because do you know how these people received the message, I can drink? I want to drink it. I wish I can drink it. But because Allah says, No, I'm scared, I can't go, I can't go there.
That's how they received the message. But that's not really what Islam says. What Islam says is that I know, I love Allah.
I love Allah and Allah knows, and I don't know. So when Allah says, to me, something has hot arms automatically, automatically, I find the hatred towards it, I don't want it. I don't even have any desire to it, I find my freedom in leaving it. That gives me freedom. That gives me power.
Because I trust in Allah. That's the kind of message that we should communicate to these people because there was a gap. And this message was lost in the middle.
So anyone who speaks to our people, they need to understand their tongue, not only the language as words, the meanings, and not only this, the social meanings, the cultural meanings.
So when you understand their meaning making system, you're able to communicate with them. So you get your message across instead of getting misinterpreted instead of giving the wrong message across, which actually pushes people away even from Islam.
So Omar said Nana, rasulillah, very Sonico Helio by niobium. That's the word. So he could clearly convey to them the meanings. And if you don't understand the culture, you're not going to convey meanings you will convey opposite to your intention. That's the problem for you little Allahumma Yahshua where the MUGISHA well as usual hockey, law guides, whomever he will allow misleads or sorry, alarmists, guides, in the sense that a lie leaves to go astray, whomever He wills, and the law guides, whomever He wills and we said previously, this is based on the justice of a Lost Planet, Allah, Allah gives guidance to the people who deserve it. And Allah leaves the people who choose
other than guidance, Allah leaves them to go astray.
Well, who will Aziz will hacking, and as he said, he is the Almighty and he's the all wise. So no one can take guidance, without the permission of Allah. And that's what lscs means, here is the Almighty. So I cannot take guidance against the will of Allah guidance happens by the will of Allah subhanaw taala.
And Hakeem, it shows that Allah is the wise and we said, wise means a lot puts everything in its right place. The real meaning of wisdom or a hikma appropriateness, is appropriateness, appropriateness, that you put everything in its right place at the right time.
In the right context, everything is just right, everything is just appropriate. So I'll Hakeem here means that a lot with guidance where it belongs, according to his wisdom, will Aziza Hakeem, and it shows also the wisdom of Allah is that he sends a messenger to the people who speaks their language or understands their language, they can relate to him. And this is why it's very important as well and Dawa. When we speak in about the youth, it's important to have young days are able to connect with them, who understand their culture, who can that they can relate to these people. We need to we need to keep this in mind. We're human beings. We also need to take into consideration as well
sometimes in Islam, we can take even color into consideration, we can take background and races into consideration, we can take that into consideration. So for example, last month Allah when he mentioned his blessings on on the on the Arabs, he says Rasulullah min unforeseen we sent a messenger from amongst themselves.
I was interrupted, I sent you a messenger from amongst you is an Arab.
He's an Arab. He's not from that race or that other easeful amongst you. And that's a blessing, that's a gift. This makes it more likely for you to follow him makes it easier for you to follow him. So as well and know what that was, well, we should take this into consideration. Now you have in different communities, you have an African community, American African community, you have the white community, you have Spanish community, you have Latino community, you have different communities of European Communities. It's better to have who's who's who come from that background, who come from that ethnicity and who speak the language, understand the culture they can relate to
these people are much more effective, much more effective. You will find exceptions, right? Yes, but most likely, people who belong to that culture or that ethnicity are more likely to be more influential.
Well upon Selena Mousavi hyah Tina and courage coma kameena boo mochila know what a killer home be a young Illa in nephew Daddy, can it liquidity sambar in Chicago.
Last month, Allah says we sent we sent Musa alayhis salam with a Yeti now with our signs or signs in our offices, our signs, the miracles that were given to mo salesianum that prove his messenger ship, and also a total, a total that was given to moosari is
an average oma kameena Bulu Machida note. So the mission of Mossad Islam like your Mohammed was to bring your people may not follow Matt from darkness into unknown light into like the same mission, the same mission? What acutal humbly am Allah and remind them of the days of Allah? What does this mean? Remind them of the days of Allah means remind them of the days where Allah destroyed previous nations who rejected to believe who will refuse to believe and rejected faith.
So remind them of the days when Allah destroyed add into mod and other and all those nations who
rejected their prophets and messengers, and chose disbelief remind them of those days. And it also means remind them of the days or Moosa remind them of the days when Pharaoh was on top of them when he was killing their children.
And when Ron was keeping them as slaves, remind them of those days, because we saved them afterwards. We saved them so let them remember the blessings of Allah upon them to save them from further on. And this is gonna, it was gonna mention this again, shortly.
With the Columbia Mullah interview that he called it liquidity sambar in Chicago, indeed, in those days of Allah, which is basically the punishments that Allah sent upon the people who disbelieved and the honor that Allah gave the people who believed.
Which Prophet, his people believed in him.
Prior to Prophet Mohammed Sawsan.
You find most of the stories in the Koran. They're all about people disbelieved in their Prophet, right, they rebelled against the Prophet against the messengers or loss and the punishment against them, who was the Prophet that his people believed in him? fully?
You know, selling his serum for Lola cannot create an AMA and he man what in law
says the people of you honestly are the only ones who believed completely in the message of viewers, although they had disbelieved previously, but later on, they believed so when you remind them of those days of Allah, how he honored for example, communist and those who believed and how He punished those who disbelieved and challenged Allah subhana wa tada in Nevada can attend Nikolas a bunch of those days, there are signs. There are lessons there are wisdoms for every suburb and Chicago, suburb and Chico. sambar is someone who has patience, high level of pain when somebody is not patience. Patience is a small fraction of
patients is a lifestyle.
Patience is a life style. It's not only or Saba is a lifestyle. It's not only patience, it's not only perseverance,
patience, or somebody has so many meanings. Among them is patience, forbearance persevere perseverance.
Consistency is part of patience, consistency, commitment is part of patience. There's so many meanings to patients or to serve them.
So So somebody has a way of life, and it is achieved by a high level of maturity. Now, the scholars of Islam, you mentioned this in his book, wearable sleep
which is a book of car he talks about patients and he says or talks about suburbs.
He says sub is the highest level of test key. We spoke about test key and right. He says a sub is the highest level of test key and he says all the luck, all the good manners, all the ethical principles in Islam, the heart of them is at
the heart of if someone and these were the prophets was on and says, Morocco you had an upper and better than a man who built
the province of Southern says no one is given a blessing from Allah. After a man that is better than Southern
suburb, if you have some of your going to automatic is so central pivotal, that once you have submitted automatically you grow in every aspect of your life, in every goodness that you can think about. You're going to grow automatically. You're going to have shujaa you're going to have courage, you're going to have truthfulness and honesty. You're going to have generosity of Calum, you're going to have
insight. You can have insight and basura you're going to have anything good that you can think about the heart of it is patience. Once you get patience, straightaway, it spills over into all aspects of your life. So in a few dedicated areas and liquidity a sub bar
for every human being has reached this high level of a sub Shaco is also thankful. thankful to Allah sponsor, scholars say thankfulness resembles
the external deeds. It's an attitude in the heart or resembles all the external deeds. Because everything in Islam you do you're supposed to do it in thankfulness is what Allah said. sudo a Salaam Emmanuella. Tao Buddha Shaka, all family of the world and the followers have their own act, do righteousness in thankfulness. So all your deeds should be emanating from your attitude of thankfulness to Allah.
That's what worship is worship is being thankful to Allah through your attitude and actions.
So this is why these are very important traits. Patience patients, our server and sugar.
As why again, she has come to me, says a dean, Gmail Dean, the whole of Dean of Islam is this from some brown one is from Chicago. It is half of Islam and the other half of sugar. That's it. That's what Islam is. You want to understand Islam, this is what it stands for Islam, salt, and sugar.
These are profound things. But for us, we take sulfur, or just be patient. And that's it. Pretty simple thing, small thing. No, it's a way of life. And shall call, okay, I'm going to be thankful. That's it. No. thankfulness
is also a way of life. It's an attitude towards life. And when you are thankful, and we're going to mention this, it changes your life. thankfulness, by the way is a very powerful principle that can change the dynamics and the course of your life. And that's what truly that's what sugar is. But when you will, when we reduce it to saying thank you, or saying it hamdulillah.
That's a very small, tiny bit of what sugar is. Sugar is a way of life. It's a it's a current that runs through your life. So every moment in your life, in the back of your mind, there is this kind of current of thankfulness to Allah. You live in thankfulness, you feel it throughout the moments of new day, and your night, you feeling thankfulness you feeling indebted to Allah throughout your life. And every moment of your life is just when you go to work. And you have this sense of obligation and commitment and duty. And you always feel I want to do this, I want to do this, I want to do that even when you're sitting or even when you're checking your Facebook account at work.
Probably they blocked this any work now these days, whatever social media wherever you do, check your phone and your ticket, all your fi, your home feed and so on and so forth. Basically
when you do this, you always have the back of your mind. Also the things I need to do there are things you need to do or when your wife This is for only for married people, when your wife tells you, okay, I need you to go to Walmart for basic cetera. When should you get me onions, garlic, and lettuce, and
You might be having a nice day. But there's something bugging you throughout the day. It's it like keeps nudging you and poking you in the back of your head.
Oh, I need to get this for my wife, right? You can't enjoy any moment. Why? Because you have this.
You know, nagging at the back at the back of your mind of your head that I need to get this right. But conversely, in a very positive sense, thankfulness, that's what it is. It's always there.
It's not like you put it on the side, then you visit it over and over again. No, it is something that's always active. And it's always shaping your feelings and your attitude. regardless what you do. That's when thankfulness or shoukat becomes a way of life. So when you develop these two things, you know what happens? It's going to open your mind you're gonna see things for what they really are, is what law says in the view that he can I think equally sambar in Chico, when you develop these two things, sabalan sugar in you, all of a sudden you start to see things for what they really are. You can see through things and that's why you're able to take lessons other people because they
don't have Saba they don't have sugar.
What will happen they can't see the screen they just can't see
it called a masala oh me
with Colonia Mata La Jolla, la you come enjoy coming around so Mona come soon, we wouldn't be hoonah abna como esta hora de ser accom v daddy cumbre
masala Salaam was sent to his people, in order to remind them in order to warn them. And in order to put that reminder in context, because humans see things in relation to them. We always By the way, there's always a question you asking yourself, whatever you do, what's in it for me?
What's in it? For me? This question runs through your mind every time you have to make a decision.
And your answer to this question decides whether you will go for it, or you or you will opt out of it.
What's in it for me? We are pragmatic human beings. We are pragmatic creatures, even those who want to go to gender, they are pragmatic, why do they What do they want to go to gender? Because it's good for them, right? By the way, that's what even taymiyah says he says, Whatever human beings do, they do it for their own welfare.
They do it. He says, The miserly person holds back money.
Because of pragmatism, because He cares about himself. And the good person, generous person, he gives out money for the same reason.
Because he cares about himself.
But they have different ways of caring for themselves, this person found that is better for me to give for the sake of Allah. It helps me grow spiritually. And it helps me get credit with a las panatela make it to paradise. They miserly person, he doesn't see it that way he looks at he sees it through a different lens. And he says I'm going to lose money that I made, it's mine. So I'm going to lose. So I'm not going to do it.
So both of them are coming originally from the same place. But it's how you fulfill it, how you interpret it. So
in order to wake up this, their minds and make them consider the message, Allah subhanaw taala says to him, remind them of the blessings of Allah.
how Allah saved them from their own, from his people, that they used to punish them. They used to put them under very extreme or under extreme conditions, and they kill their newborns, and they leave the women. They use them as slaves. And there was a and this is a great trial. If you daddy combat never become haleem This is a great trial, what you went through, but there's another meaning that has double meaning here. Allah says that will feed Allah cumbre, honorable Malema and in the fact that Allah saved you from around there is great trial for you. Are you going to be thankful or not?
So the blessings of Allah Allah trial for you, when a lie saves you from something bad? That's a trial that is built out for you as a trial for you. Are you going to be thankful?
Or are you going to be negligence and ungrateful?
What if the available come in Shackleton as Eden comala Inca fortress in Russia lead. And that's a very important point that resonates with what we just said. And a law declared
by on the tango morsani Cinema law made a clear statement through masa. And this is a universal law. Or if the other than our community in Chicago tumbler as he then
a loss of penalty,
made a declaration that if you are grateful, if you are thankful, I shall increase you in my blessings. This is a universal rule that works everywhere, everywhere.
But you just have to be grateful.
And gratefulness is That is not to say a handler or you're just not that just wants to know why we say thank you. That's not it.
It's a way of life. It's a lifestyle. It's something that keeps running in your system. And it shapes who you are. It shapes your decisions shapes, your thoughts, shapes, your considerations that shapes your actions that shapes your intentions. It shapes everything about you. That's when you are thankful. So when you live in a constant state of thankfulness and sugar
You'll start to see the Blackmore blessings of unlock coming to you, that's a rule that does not break
with another book in the courtroom as he then.
So Allah is saying to them if you are thankful, if you are grateful, I shall increase you
will incur fortune in elevation if you act ungratefully COVID. Here COVID in Arabic originally means being ungrateful, by the way, one of the meanings of performance, ungrateful that this is why we say, Khufu, Nana, you're ungrateful to the blessings, you're ungrateful to a blessing. That's
because there's a very strong link between disbelief and ungratefulness. So
if you act on, gratefully, my punishment will be severe, so you will lose the blessings, the punishment will come back to you. That's a universal rule as well. To put this in context, in the context of the people of Mossad is Allah saying, we have saved you from from from that very difficult state
of subjugation and enslavement, and murdering your newborns, we've saved you from that. So if you are grateful, we're going to increase you in that freedom and these blessings. But if you're ungrateful, you're going to go back to slavery, you're going to you might even get worse for you. And you're just receiving the consequences of your own actions and attitudes. So this shows as well, we can, there's a principal and school of thought that says a lot to be a mom in
the meanings in the Quran, there are general statements, although they come within a context, like the story of most people, but they have universal application. universal application, this is a universal rule that applies everywhere.
And it's very important, anyone who wants more from our last panelist, Allah be grateful, just be grateful.
And you will get more. And gratefulness as I said, is an attitude and his words as actions. So if Allah gives you wealth, and you give for the sake of Allah, because Allah gave you, that's an act of gratefulness. But you have to have all of the layers, which is the attitude and the feeling in the heart. And the act of giving. If you have it as a full context, as a complete, holistic action, that's when it's gonna pay off.
But if you give, and you want to see if it comes back or not, you're testing it out.
This might not work for you most likely will not actually work. So you have to be in that state of trusting when you give that Allah is going to give you back more. And that's where a lot where the Hadith of the Prophet and false Nan Senado masataka, money will never go down. Because of giving charity, it will never go down. How you don't know how, if you count it, the numbers will go less. But if you look at the bigger context of your life, you're going to see a lot is going to bring more blessings and more wealth from other ways whenever thought of and you do not add them up.
So Allah and there might be some even hidden blessings, because
there might be some kind of a disaster that was meant to hit you and take all of your wealth.
But a lot took it away before it even materialized. You'll never get to know about this. You'll never get to know about this. Why the law took away from you by means of some charity or something good you did.
This is why the prophets of Salaam says in the authentic hadith, Sunnah Iran in my own feet at a Masada show. doing good deeds, protects you from bad ends, evil ends from disasters. You'll never get to know about these things because they're all in the unseen world when they were on on their way when they were approaching and then when they were stopped and aborted. You never saw this, but it's a blessing from Allah. So Allah pays us back in countless ways we don't know is why we have to trust.
Want to encourage them in the
world, what are the most impactful and two moments in our journey in Allaha levani Yun Hamid
masa to his people, if you disbelieve, if you live in denial to Allah subhanaw taala, ungrateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala you, my people, and everyone on Earth, everyone on Earth,
then Allah doesn't stand in need of you anyway. Because your worship is not going to add to unlock your ungratefulness your disbelief is not going to harm a lot in the least. It's not going to do anything. A lot is of any Allah, self sufficient. He doesn't need you. It doesn't need you worship. That's all for you. Hamid, Allah deserves all praise he doesn't need you're not going to add anything to Allah so he gets more praise or he becomes more praise worthy.
Allah stands in nonito view. So that's all for you. So
and this reminds me of the
Hello Good to see and also here last panzano says yeah you barely know and welcome into como Gina comm

Someone was you the

So I'm not there's not a you guys think, Oh, I'm standing in defiance to do nothing. You don't think you're just making a show of yourself?
A miracle Napoleon amicably come home. You know, why didn't
the Himalaya illallah wa salam ala unity photo ad a home fee for him? We'll call him NACA for Nabina or symptom behavior in Russia came in natrona. La Mori. Last month, I was saying it couldn't be more sir. Raising this to these people. And it couldn't be our last one. China here is initiating a new kind of
statement. Did not you didn't you receive the news of the nations that came before? People of No, they were drowned.
Were ad and the people of ads Well, they were destroyed by loss of an anthem owed as well. They were destroyed by a lot from a moto moto liko. But a lot of them the people have solid for an ad for only kobori pencils that he had
sent to to them, alone, destroy them by a strong wind to them. miroku jmbm europea destroys everything via the command of your Lord and those who came after after them. Didn't you receive the news about them they will destroy the disbelieved. They were destroyed by Allah, Muhammad Allah Allah.
That means a lot of these people are only known by Allah subhanaw taala. So what you know is very little but Allah so Allah has shared with you, some some of them, but there is much more that you don't know about. But Allah knows about these people. Jarrod tomasulo from VB net, they're messengers came to them with the truth of the signs, clear signs. And the revelation followed the idea home fee for him
about the idea of evasion their hands or their palms back into their mouth. What does this mean? scholars have to say or they say, it could be these people were biting the hands in hatred to the truth. But it could be as well as these people in denial. And some kind of amazement when these people said when the prophets and messengers said worship Allah alone, they said, Wow, like is strange. This is despicable. This is strange, it doesn't make sense. So it's somehow a
physical gesture that shows rejection, disgust and denial
will call in aka form nabeshima or seal term behavior in refugia Kimi Matta Runa la Marie. So these people said we have this believed in whatever you came with whatever message you came with, and we have a very strong profound doubts about what you guys say.
So that was the general attitude of these people said we had doubts we had doubts. And this is why doubt is not science. Yes, I mean, you can use doubt as a tool in science but in doubt is not science.
Doubt is not does not give certainty. That's the issue. So when people take doubt as their primary approach to asserting things, that's problematic,
as problematic, you can use doubt, to verify physical things. Yes, you can challenge some physical things. But if you use doubts, to challenge spiritual truths that you know in your foot, you will be lost.
You will be lost.
Anyway, so these this is generally the response of these people to their prophets and messengers was a negative one was a negative one. So I'm going to stop here because afterwards Allah will talk about the argument how it goes back and forth between the prophets and messengers, and their people, and how they responded to them and how they received them. And then what the end of them would be insha Allah. So we're going to stop here.
Verse nine, we'll start next time with verse 10. Sure, a lot. And we'll take some questions if there is any questions.
You always save.
First of all, I haven't I didn't figure it out.
anymore, but I will I will add in your apology, boy.
Okay, let me mention the question in question and answer. First one, is there any
thing that could justify not being good with?
Nothing justifies being bad to your parents, nothing at all.
If parents were negative at some stage in life, they beat the child up and abused the child, they mistreated the child. Now, when the child becomes an adult, is supposed his past his that was his test, he or she is supposed to reach a point of forgiveness, if they're unable to forgive from the hearts, at least, they turn around, they leave that behind their back. And they try to be the best to their parents.
So that's what they should, what they should what they should do. So there's no way to justify mistreatment of parents whatsoever.
What if parents are negative, still negative, like my parents still take advantage of me, they still abuse me, they still mistreat me and so on and so forth. You this also does not justify that you mistreat them. But if parents are very negative, and there are sometimes parents that are very negative, very judgmental, and they could actually destroy your life as possible, they could destroy your self esteem, they could destroy your family, this there are people who are just like this, because they're human beings. Now, if this is the case, you will limit your interaction with them to the least possible without cutting or cutting them off completely. Okay, so maybe if they affect
your family, your family doesn't have to visit them doesn't have to be connected to them. So you can maybe see them once a week.
Every other week, maybe once a month, limit the damage. Okay, but don't cut them off completely, unless in very extreme cases. In very extreme cases, there are people who are very toxic. I've seen a couple of cases
where they're especially especially daughters, now they are mothers, they are in their 30s 40s. And she says, When I see my mother, she destroys me. She destroys me, she's very negative. She knows how to, like, make me feel like I liked it. Okay.
So in these very extreme cases, we say yes, they wave. They have very, very extreme negative impact on you. Stay away, stay away from them.
But don't mistreat them. Don't miss treat them. Okay.
So the bottom line is keep away from them, or see them or check on them, like the least amount of numbers without cutting them off.
If you want to go better is check more on them be nicer to them. But going below that bottom line, which is being aggressive towards them negative towards them, no, there's no justification for this whatsoever.
The second thing is about psychological issues, people have psychological problems. Now, this is for specialists. If they say that this kind of psychological state that this person has, it does block or does affect rational thinking, we have to take this into consideration.
There are psychological states where the person does not think straight,
or they have an emotional kind of trauma. And they really do not have good control of themselves. But there's going to be a discrepancy. I know sometimes in some, because there are different schools within psychology, you will have sometimes
like a serial killer, who would say, Oh, he has psychological issue. Oh, yes, but he's a killer, right? He's a killer. And if you check, he's responsible for his actions. He knows what he's doing. So this person is actually punishable. And they should pay for their crimes.
So sometimes some psychological schools, they go too lenient into saying, Oh, this psychological issue, this person is not responsible for the actions. Sometimes they're very lenient in that. Okay. But generally speaking, the the ultimate answer of this is with the last panel to how he knows if someone is really knows what they are doing or not. But we can have a general assessment of the person who's responsible has a certain level of responsibility and over the actions, then they absolutely islamically they are responsible. Yeah.
Any more questions?
the creation of Islam and the refusal of a beliefs to prostrate and was there a fire there or no?
We know that it
is from Jim but he was with the angels in the company of the angels. And he was doing great worship. So he stood out.
When Allah created Adam and he Salaam
blease became jealous.
And the ration says that actually, please, when Adam was just physical body before Allah blew the soul into the obliques. So Adam and he checked him out and he realized he was hollow inside in the sense, he has an inner passage in the outer passage, ejected and he said, if he has an inner passage and outer passage that shows weakness, dependency,
he depends he needs, he needs food, that shows his creation has some dependency in it. Then he says, Listen solely to Alico. He cannot he says he felt jealous because Allah gave Adam so much honor.
It was such a like, seemed to be like a celebrated event when I'm like reading Adam and his Sunnah. So at least felt generous. So he said, If I'm given power over you, I shall destroy.
Then, obviously, when a law blew the soul into Adam, and the law commanded angels to prostrate themselves before Adam as a sign of glorification to Allah through Adam.
the punishment of Allah is severe. Regardless, we talked about the Hellfire or not.
So at least was aware of this.
Please was aware of this.
So I would say Bruce was aware of the punishment of Allah and he was aware of the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala. But I have nothing specifically from the Quran and Sunnah, saying that,
at least was promised the Hellfire specifically
if he refused Allah's command
if you refuse the last command, but we know that shavon is going to join people in the Hellfire, so that's going to be his end. That will be his end.
Okay, yeah. So
I'm not sure if this answers your question.
Get it out of your head relax.
Okay, if some Something happened in the accident and you say I was the wrong place at the wrong time, not necessarily something bad. Like, if you now, it depends on the perspective that you have if you're saying this
I would advise against this statement.
But if you say this from an operational point of view from an operational point of view, so, if there is a lag there is a say, someone crosses the street not from the assigned place not from the pedestrian crossing, by the way they call it in the UK zebra crossing.
So, someone is crossing not from the pedestrian
crossing place or someplace
and he gets run over by a car
in that, in that sense, he could say I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. So from an operational point of view, yes, someone consumes harmful substance, they might say yes, it was the wrong place at the wrong time. Fine. So if there is a human error in that thing, yes, you can see this in an operational sense, but not in a sense of other
kids will cuddle wherever is written is going to happen. So it's the right time is so depends on the perspective. And I think that solves the problem.
Yeah, meaning here, Sybil is having power over them to Harmon.
Now, we said,
a million said that, according to the level of your email, Allah will protect you from the disbelievers from their heart, and so on and so forth.
That's a general rule, right? When we were talking about something else, we said, we should not take a simplistic approach to things so there's always a bigger context.
So there might be some exceptions, where Allah would get the disbelievers to do some harm.
Some harm little harm to believers like the prophet SAW Salaam Tapia,
but the prophets of Salaam in Makkah was ridiculed. The camel intestine was put in his back
in a hunt, the prophet SAW Salah was wounded, right on his cheeks, he lost some of his teeth, and so on and so forth. But this is why Sybil means Allah will not empower and give the disbelievers power over the believers. So minor harm will happen regardless. But it's the kind of harm where they completely overcome you, as an individual as a Muslim as a believer individual. Well, the rule is very strong that it will apply. But as I said, other rules as a context will have an impact, they will be contributing factors.
Okay, so we still have to put everything in its right context.
Yeah, I mean, life is context. Life is context. If you miss the context, you can't solve the problem. So anything you have to see it within this bigger context and that bigger context, you have to see it within even the wider context is how things relate to each other.
Okay, Any more questions?
needs a lot of caffeine? I'm Amina Sevilla. I'm not.
I mean, they are often no one questions this right. Yeah.
Yes, but I think it's it's more about this linear. shower. It's more about listening. Yes.
Okay. Last question.
in a situation
Yeah, how to grow patience and food and thankfulness, how to grow
within oneself. That's what the system, that's what the whole system of Islam does.
That's the whole point. If you look at Islam, that's what it builds within you.
That's what it builds within you. But a way to keep this in mind, in order to be thankful, you need to be mindful of Allah and His blessings upon you. If you look at everything around you as a blessing, this will help you be thankful. So you can start it as a point. One of the good points actually a good practice to start this is to do this as a daily practice write down. And I'm saying writing because it helps you don't have to write but it does enhance the experience. If you write down every day,
the same the morning or in the evening, three things that you thank Allah for
simple things, simple things, it could be like you had a nice glass of water, you just enjoyed it. Thank Allah for that. See,
your biller can handle Thank you Allah for this glass of water was really beautiful. You had it in the morning, okay, say you're doing it in the evening, say, Allah, thank you for this beautiful glass of water in the morning that I had was wonderful. something good happen to you. Like you were trying to catch the bus and the driver decided to wait for you. So I haven't really I didn't have to wait 15 or 20 minutes. So towards the end of the day, remember this, you write it in your list, or law, thank you for making that bus driver. Stop for me, I know it's from you. You cause them to do this. I'm really appreciative feel, let yourself in on
this, let yourself indulge in that gratitude. And that feeling of thankfulness that last giving you something special. If you do this on a daily basis, you will be surprised that you're gonna start to see a lot of blessings around you. It becomes more of a mental habit. And it makes it easier for you that's where it's at with thankfulness with
with us or sober.
Cyber is so diverse that it's hard for me to like, pin it down in one practice. But I'd say what would help you in terms of cyber
is that always looking at the end, the far end of things.
And the stick in front of him. He says man, Tulum Mahal afia han et la de Mirage is the one who can see
the wellness and the benefit at the end, it will be easier for him to handle patients, because patients is bitter, and sour.
But when you see the final end, you'll be able to put up with this. I want to mention it just an example. Just to make it a bit more,
more abstract or more concrete.
Yesterday, I was leading telawi in a Masjid in stomachs, and sort of clarington and Curtis near Oshawa.
And I was dealing with Salah, and I know my son was six years old. I know he's not going to stand on the line.
So what I do, I put him sometimes next to me. So I made him pray next to me.
And for the first time he does this, when I recite I don't like to hear noise If I hear noise, I get distracted, I lose my focus, I can't read. So I'm reading and I realized he's reading with me and with a loud voice. So recycle factor and your deciding factor hamdu lillahi, Rabbil alameen are really read. So I got like I reached a point. I couldn't take it anymore. I couldn't focus
and what other sources I was reciting, and he doesn't know that. But he's just sort of catching my my tone. And he's just with me like this, and this annoys me so much.
So I said to myself when I make when I finish the story because I'm gonna, I'm gonna tell him to just come down here. So I was really agitated. But I said to myself, my son is shy, but the fact that he's standing in front of a huge number of people and he's reciting, and there is no concern about what I said that's a very good thing. I hope this would help him. Be able maybe tomorrow later on with his future, to have no issues with leading salon eating people like or in public being able to speak.
about this, I said that's the benefit in the future. Automatically I lost my annoyance.
I lost my annoyance. I'm not annoyed anymore because now I associated his noise or his the sound that he was making with a better future for himself and straight away.
So when you as a man like him says, When you see the benefit at the end, it's easier for you to be patient comes easier for you. So whatever happens, always look, always look at how things will turn out to be later on, that will help you be patient. It's more of what we call, have a strategic view.
You're going through a very hard time difficult time to see, you know, in three days from now, this will be part of the past. Wow, this will be relief. You're no longer trapped in that moment. So seeing what's going to be in the future that actually helps you develop patience. So hopefully this is gonna work. Try it. Try it out. See, play radiculopathy comes up and the last one to be on the familiar video savvy. Awesome.
