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 lot he led the Lahore Murphy's Law, this path of Allah, Xin 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, the ones who is the one who manages it, don't have doubts about this, don't have doubt about this than the last one that says, We're way too little caffeine, I mean, I've been cheated, those who are not guided, those who refuse the guidance, those will 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 an azeez, the Almighty, the one who deserves all praise, so love will take care of them.
And to allow 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 cathrine 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 either
way, so don't answer Viva La Jolla buena.
Allah says all views 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 era is eternal, endless. and
above, there's abundance that 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 something seems to be very obvious, extremely obvious, would you exchange 70 years, let's 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 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 old woman hadn't done enough an archeological lammeter the whole beauty, the whole enjoyment, everything that's fun, everything is 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 one or higher to dunia. I'll ask you why so don't answer Viva 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 way, 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 there, they champion freedom, and they support freedom, they actually go against it in passive ways. They go against it in passive ways, 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, I would say in 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 upon false for they're not happy with you following something else as well. Last month, Allah says in the Quran repeatedly what decade thielmann Allah kitabi that we are doing a comin back to him and ecophon hustler in finance. Some of the people have this scripture. A lot of them. They wish to turn you back to disbelief. Allah said hassard and out of envy.
What is lol RT Luna comm patreon.com and Dini comunista, Allah talks about the polytheists of the Arab 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 out, sometimes you'll find just talking about sexual orientation talking about Come look, unload, unload, load alehissalaam 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 their with his guests. With his guests were actually angels come in the form of men human being. And then the people of loot as well. They said, a hurry do a loop in Korea to come in nomina Sunita Harun.
Okay, Luke chose certain what we say straight sexual orientation for himself, right? And his follow was 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 and you're going to find this, you will find this. People who have something people who have believed 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 as 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 think, Oh, my ways are not optimal.
That's how humans automatically think so this is why when you disagree with someone, they take your personal
they take your personal
very few people are mature.
enough to be able to rise above that ego kind of game. So we're also doing Ansible and they push others against the way of Allah weeaboo and a half a word and they insist, and they make a conscious choice to follow a crooked on straightway
on straight weight, without you can feel balandin buried, 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 have a word and they seek the crooked path. He mentioned something he says. So the people of disbelief will always give a bad name to the path of a lost 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.
What I also learned was Julian inlab, rissani homie healio been around for a little longer, Masha, Masha, Allah says we he 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 buy in a home 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 subhana wa tada the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala, that Allah sends the right people with the right tongue, with the right approach at the right time, and so on, so forth. So last month, in a sense, every message is speaking the language of the wrong people. And this is why it's very important for Nora, 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 a, they get a surface meaning but the wife of that person, she figures out a very deep meaning a very, like 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's some kind of code between friends because they have their own unique experiences their own unique history, they've 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 culture 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 that one. And here are 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 with Stan 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're 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 because Allah says no, that's beautiful. That's beautiful for Muslim culture.
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 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 Oh, so basically, it's them confiscate 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 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 receive the message. But that's not really what Islam says. 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 is Homs, automatically, automatically, I find the hatred towards it, I don't want it. I don't even have any desire to have, I found 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 a people, they need to understand the 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 Salama rasulillah recently told me to buy a home 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 your little law homie your shirt. Where do you make your shirt? Well, one as easily hacky, a lot guides whomever he will allow misleads, sorry, alarmists guides, in the sense that a lie leaves to go astray whomever He wills, and the Lord guides whomever He wills and we said previously, this is based on the justice of a Lost Planet, 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 as easily and as as we said, 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.
the right context, everything is just right, everything is just appropriate. So al Hakim here means that Allah puts guidance where it belongs, according to his wisdom.
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 his wife is very important as well. And our, when we speak 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 are 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, the last one to Allah when he
mentioned his blessings on on the on the Arabs, he says Rasulullah min unforeseen we sent a messenger from amongst themselves. Allah saying to that I sent your 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 their own schools 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.

So remind them of the days when Allah destroyed ad and the 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 Furlong was killing their children
and when the throne was keeping them as slaves, remind them of those days. Because we save them afterwards. We save them so let them remember the blessings of Allah upon them to save them from further on and there's gonna it was gonna mention this again shortly.
With the Columbia mela in Nevada Kela iottie licola 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 and 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?
Who you all know Sally, Sara falola cannot create an AMA and that's how 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, communists and those who believed and how He punished those who disbelieved and challenged the last panel to add in a few that he can attend equally substantial in those days, there are signs there are lessons there are wisdoms for every suburb and Chico, suburb and Chico. sebata is someone who has patience, high level of pain, when somebody is not patience. Patience is a small fraction of
patience is a lifestyle.
Patience is a life style is not only or sober is a lifestyle. It's not only patience, it's not only perseverance,
patience, or somebody has so many meanings among them as patience, forbearance,
Consistency is part of patience, consistency, commitment as part of patience. There's so many meanings to patients or to sub
sub sub bodies a way of life and it is achieved by a high level of maturity. Now, the scholars of Islam and I will pay you mentioned this in his book wobble asleep
and say he'll kill him a pipe, which is a book of car he talks about patience and he says or talks about suburb and he says, suburb is the highest level of teskey
We spoke about teskey and right. He says a suburb is the highest level of Ischia and he says all the luck, all the good manners, all the ethical principles in Islam the heart of them is a symbol. The heart of if someone This is why the prophets of Salaam says Morocco had an upper and better aim and it will last and Amina.
The province of Southern says no one is given a blessing from Allah. After a man that is better than suburb,
suburb, if you have suburb, you're going to automatic. It's so central pivotal, that once you have suburb automatically, you grow in every aspect of your life, in every goodness that you can think about. You're going to grow up automatically. You're going to have shujaa, you're going to have courage, you're going to have a sort of truthfulness and honesty. You're going to have generosity of color, you're going to have
insight, you can have insight and Basilan. You can 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 the few that you can get in NyQuil the sub bell
for every human being has reached this high level of a sub shackle is also thankful. thankful to Allah Sparta, 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 and thankfulness is what Allah said sudo de la Sara mailloux. Buddha Shaka, or family of the word and the followers of their own acts, 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. Patients are sober. And sugar
is why again, she has come to me, says a dino. Je Malik Dean, the whole of Dean of Islam is this from some brown was from Chicago. It is half of Islam, a suburb, the other half of Chicago. That's it. That's what Islam is. You want to understand Islam. This is what it stands for Islam, sama, and sugar.
These are profound things. But for us, we take several, or just be patient. And that's it. Pretty simple thing, small thing. I know, it's a way of life, and sugar, 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, I'm 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 we 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 your day, and your night. You feeling thankfulness you feeling indebted to Allah, throughout your life, in 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 have blocked this any work now these days, whatever social media, whatever 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 all the things I need to do there are things I 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, food, basic cetera, once you get me, onions, garlic, and lettuce, and
You might be having a nice day. But there's something bugging you throughout the dates. 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 Oh, should come 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 going to see things for what they really are. As well law says interview that he can I think, Nicolas on Balenciaga 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 are able to take lessons other people because they don't have Saba, they don't have sugar.
What happened? They can't see the screen. They just can't see
it emotionally for me
with Colonia Mata La Jolla, la you come enjoy coming around so Mona
Mona, Mona como esta hora de ser, a CO, op de la cumbre, camaleon 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 Why do they want to go to gender? Because it's good for them, right? By the way, that's why 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 the last person to make it to paradise, that 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 Subhana, Allah says to him, remind them of the blessings of Allah.
how Allah saved them from around from his people, that they used to punish them, they used to put them under very extreme or under extreme conditions, and they kill the newborns, and they leave the women. They use them as slaves. And there was a and this is a great trial. If you daddy cumbre navabi camaleon. This is a great trial, what you went through, but there's another meaning that has double meaning here, Allah says that he that he combat, Arabic, Muslim, and in the fact that Allah saved you from around there is a great trial for you, are you going to be thankful or not?
So the blessings of Allah are a trial for you, when Allah saves you from something bad, that's a trial that has been out for you, that's a trial for you. Are you going to be thankful?
Are you going to be negligent and ungrateful?
If the available come in Shackleton as Eden comala incoterm in Russia. And that's a very important point that resonates with what we just said. And a law declared
by the tunngle mortality Center, a law made a clear statement that almost and this is a universal law, or if the common law in Chicago termed as either
a loss 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 your sales handler. Or you're just not just once in a while who 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. It 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 more blessings of a law coming to you. That's a rule that does not break
With the nonverbal communication as even
So Allah is saying to them if you are thankful, if you are grateful, I should increase you
will incur fortune.
If you act ungratefully COVID here COVID in Arabic originally means being ungrateful By the way, one of the meanings of performance, ungrateful. That is why we say not with Khufu, NEMA, you're ungrateful to the blessings. You're ungrateful to a blessing, that's powerful NEMA, 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 Missouri's 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 it 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 principle on the sofa that says, to be a mom in
the meanings in the Quran, there are general statements, although they come within a context, like the story of mortality among these 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 panel shall not 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 going to 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 allow is going to give you back more. And that's where a lot where the Hadith of the Prophet unfolds. Nana Samira 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 you never 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 logic away from you by means of some charity or something good you did.
This is why the prophet SAW Selim says and authentic hadith, Sunnah Iranian mahalo kita de Masada Su, 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
when incoterm in the hobby, the Sinead O'Connor Moosa in tactful, and to woman will oblige me and in Allaha levani Yun Hani the
most assertive people, if you disbelieve. If you they live in denial to Allah subhanaw taala I'm grateful 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 a lot is self sufficient. He doesn't need you. He doesn't need your 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 or he becomes more praise worthy.
Allah stands in need of you. So that's all for you. So
and this reminds me of the Odyssey and also he lost pounds on a says

So I'm not there's not a you guys think oh, I'm standing in defiance to do nothing. Do nothing. Don't think you're just making a show of yourself.
And Amir tickle Navajo Lydian amicably come to me, no one was a mod lady in the Himalayan mo Illallah De Tomaso engelbertina idea home fee for him, will call in Naka for Nabina or seal to behave in acuminata Runa la mo de las manzanas saying I couldn't be more sir relating this to these people. And it couldn't be our last month on 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 that were drowned
will add and the people have had as well they will destroy velocity and thermo as well they will destroyed by a law firm metamodel for only co but party Allah destroy them the people of solid will a model for only covariance of jihad. Allah sent to to them a lot and destroy them by a strong wind to them. miroku jmbm era destroys everything via the command of your Lord and those who came after after them. Didn't you receive the news about them that were destroyed, that is believed 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. JACK tomasulo, humble bayonet, they're messengers came to them with the truth, the signs, clear signs, and the revelation followed the idea home fee for him
about the idea of your vision, their hands or their palms back into their mouth. What does this mean? scholars of Tafseer 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 have a
physical gesture that shows rejection, disgust and denial.
We'll call inaka form habima or cell tomiki. We're in refugia Kimi method Runa la Marie. So these people said we have disbelieved 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, is that 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 down as the
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 doubt, to challenge spiritual truths that you know, in your Fatah, you will be lost.
You will be lost.
Anyway, so 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 inshallah. So we're gonna stop here.
Verse nine, we'll start next time with verse 10. Sure, a lot, will take no questions if there is any questions.
You always save us.
First of all, I haven't been figured it out.
Anyone better than
any apology? Boy.
Okay, let's let me mention the question in question and answer the 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 then 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 heart, at least, they turn or 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 limit your interaction with them, to the least possible without cutting off 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, like when I see my mother, she destroys me. She destroys me, she's very negative, she knows how to, like, make me feel like like dirt. 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.
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 being 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, and he 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 a lost pounds, and he knows if someone is really knows what they are doing or not. But we can have a general assessment if 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?
Hulk, Satan, either
creation of Islam and the refusal of a belief to prostrate and was there a fire there?
We know that it believes is from jinn. 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
beliefs became jealous.
And the ration says that actually, please, when Adam was just physical body before Allah blew the soul into the abyss. So Adam, and he checked him out and he realized he was hollow inside in the sense, he has an inner passage and outer passage. He checked in 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. And he says that insulin to La callowhill 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 like graded Adam a cinema. So at least felt jealous. 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 the angels to prostrate themselves before Adam as a sign of glorification to Allah through Adam.
the punishment of Allah is severe regardless, we talk 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 the Sunnah, saying that,
at least was promised the Hellfire specifically
if he refused Allah's command
if you refuse the last one, but we know that Shabbat 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, 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.
But 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, I 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 a
case of al Qaeda, whatever 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, the meaning here, Sybil is having power over them to harm them.
Now, we said
mobium said that, according to the level of your Eman, Allah will protect you from the disbelievers from their harm, 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 believe is like the prophet SAW Salem top Hema,
but the prophets of Salaam in Macau was ridiculed. The camel intestine was put in his back
in a hut, the prophet SAW Salah was wounded, right? And his cheeks he lost some of his teeth and so on and so forth. But this is why Seville 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?
What I need a lot of caffeine. I'm Amina Sevilla. I'm not sure
when they are afternoon questions this right. Yeah.
Yes, but I think it's it's more about this
show. It's more about this to me. Yes.
Okay, last question.
Sort of growing
up resembling myself
in a situation
Yeah, how to grow patience and food and thankfulness, how to grow suburban Chicago, 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 daily practice write down. And I'm saying writing because it helps you don't have to write but it does enhance the experience for you write down every day.
The same the morning and 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,

And the stick in front of you look at him, he says man, Tulum Mahal afia, Han et la Malala to sub, 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 leaving telawi in a Masjid in stomach, some sort of clarington and Curtis near Oshawa.
And I was leading a 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. supercycle factor and your deciding factor, hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. And I really read so I got like, I reached a point. I couldn't take it anymore. I couldn't focus. And so Rosa was reciting, and he doesn't know that. But he's this sort of catching my might 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 finished these toy cars, 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

I thought about this and I said that's the benefit in the future. automatically. I lost my annoying
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 for you.
You're going through a very hard time difficult time to say, you know, in three days from now, this will be part of the past. Wow, this will be really 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
