Assalamualaikum my brothers and sisters, I just want to tell you something very interesting. I met a brother, who was concerned about his son. What happened is, he says, My son was doing very well, Corona came in. And then he perhaps got immersed in a bit of social media life changed. Schools and his aims and objectives and everything was shuffled. And now he's not doing so well. He's always anxious about the future, perhaps he has quit some of what he was doing. And you know, he doesn't feel well, and he's just a teenager. So I was telling the brother, this is a common problem with the teenagers and the adolescents and even others were during the virus life changed tremendously. Life
changed so much that some people actually became depressed. That's the word and others became anxious. That's another word. What am I going to do in the future? Where am I going to earn what type of a job am I going to have? How am I going to survive? Do you know what leave it in the hands of Allah do your best for today, have a plan that you're working towards? Don't be shy, or Don't be weak when it comes to changing the plan if need be. And leave it in the hands of Allah live a day at a time, look for opportunities, seize opportunities thrown at you by Allah Almighty, work very hard trust in Allah. And you need to have that reliance and conviction. So this is something very
important rely on Allah, if Allah could feed and take care of the ants and the insects and the locusts and the rodents and the birds and the fish, what about us, Allah will take care of us. But we need to remain steadfast in our connection with Allah, we need to have this conviction that Allah will take care of us. We need to live a day at a time, be thankful to Allah subhanho wa taala. If you've had one, good day, successful, thank Allah, there are people who really don't know how the next few hours are going to go. Because they're either in a war zone, or they're either in a zone where there is natural disaster, or they're living in constant fear of an enemy or an attacker.
They're not safe, they may not have food and drink at all for the next for the day. So thank Allah, Allah has given us a lot He's given us folks, He's given us family. Many of you are watching this video, at least you have internet you have a phone minimum. But so thank Allah for that. And Allah is great. Allah will definitely open our doors he will grant us the healing.
Yes, it is a problem be determined, even if it means repeating the exams, you may have failed as a result of COVID no problem you might have been a year or two back it's because Allah knows he wants to open the door for you in the future that was far bigger than had you passed up in the first perhaps a year. So failure in terms of worldly life is not necessarily failure in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa taala.
Please understand that, be happy if you have had passed today where your salah is in order, your relationship with Allah is in order you've eaten a little don't over indulge. You've eaten a little with the name of Allah, thank Allah for it. You have a few people who care for you around you. And you've protected yourself from sin. That is the great success you have really achieved. If you have achieved one day like that you can achieve another day like that. And if you've achieved a few days like that, Allah He you have really succeeded. So we thank Allah Almighty for this and we really ask Allah Almighty to grant us from His blessings.
Remember, shaitan makes us anxious about the future. Allah says rely on me trust me. Do your best don't laze around, build your relationship with me and I'm the owner of everything I will give you constantly call out to Allah.
May Allah open your doors, my doors, the doors of the child of the brother who was speaking to me, at least it brought us a few words to remind the people about and yes, it is an issue. People are anxious, but we need to remedy that inshallah. Similarly, it's very good to talk to someone who can counsel you to talk to a group of people perhaps SubhanAllah.
It's really a good thing to have a group where we can actually speak to people and tell them that you know what,
this is what I'm going through. This is what or this is what someone's gone through. Maybe listen to what they're going through how they dealt with things. And in that way, we can all help each other. Make sure they're genuine. Baraka Allah. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
