00:02:08--> 00:02:39

LA RJ Oh, indeed we belong to Allah and unto Him shall be our ultimate return. That is a statement you need to ponder over. So Allah is telling you at times like this, ask yourself where did you come from, oh, man, where were you before your birth and ponder over it deeply and develop a connection with he who brought you into existence and understand that you belong to him.

00:02:40--> 00:03:19

If he created you, He has a plan for you. If he made you, He cares for you. So you just need to develop that relationship with him and ponder over the fact that you came from him Subhana Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us at times of difficulty and hardship and calamity those who declare that they belong to Allah. They believe that they belong to Allah, they came from Allah. They came from the maker himself, they are going to return to the maker himself. They say, we indeed belong to Allah, and unto him, we shall return. Where are you going to go?
