You keep on calling out to Allah you keep on asking Allah even though Allah knows what the end is going to be, because if you didn't, and Allah would have known that you gave up and therefore you did not achieve something. So this is what you need to remember because you don't know. And Allah knows, does not mean that you should give up. Rather, you don't know. So you should try your best and make sure that whatever is written, inshallah it's going to be the best. I'm going to go to Paradise by the will of Allah, I'm going to try my best and going to seek forgiveness. I'm going to keep on calling out to Allah, not just for guidance, but guidance being the most important thing

00:00:37--> 00:01:17

thereafter, all my needs. I first start with Allah. Let me give you another example. You go to the doctor, and the doctor diagnoses you and says you need a procedure. Firstly, you before you go to the doctor, you call out to Allah, Oh Allah, I'm going to the doctor make it easy from cure me, let the doctor diagnose correctly. When you go to the doctor and the doctor diagnosis it will be the help of Allah that will have guided the doctor to do the right thing. See, when the doctor says a procedure is required, you ask Allah Oh Allah, Oh Allah, guide the hand of this doctor so that the procedure can be fulfilled in the most correct way. And so Allah guides that hand. And so the

00:01:17--> 00:02:01

procedure is successful. It was the supplication of Allah, the acceptance of Allah to guide the doctor to do the right thing, ultimately, who was it? Because Allah, Allah gave the doctor that capacity just like Allah gives you the capacity to stand up or to even watch this right now or listen to it. Subhanallah my brothers, my sisters, many of us give up after we've called out to Allah. Remember, Allah Almighty does not want you to give up what he wants from you. He says you call out to me, I will give you either what you want as you wanted. One of the ways of accepting the prayer. Or if I know that it's not good for you, I will give you something else in place of that.

00:02:01--> 00:02:19

That's another way because you don't know what the future holds. You're asking Allah for something. He knows, hey, that's so bad for this person. He doesn't give it to you. Sometimes Allah delays what you want to the appropriate time in this world or perhaps he will keep for you something amazing in the hereafter or he made

00:02:20--> 00:02:48

you know, he may protect you from calamity that was coming in your direction, as a result of the DUA that you have made. So remember, keep making dua to Allah whether he is going to give you exactly what you want or not leave it to Him and trust Him and be happy with what he gives you as a result. That is the favor of unlucky let's keep calling out to Allah subhanho wa Taala and let's keep seeking His mercy and guidance. May Allah guide us all to the straight path I mean,
