Assalamu Aleikum when people say bad things about you, when you've done something, a lot of the times, it's because they're acknowledging your importance in their lives. They're acknowledging that you're a force to be reckoned with. And they feel that they need to invest their time, money, effort and energy speaking about you. So that's not a negative thing, take it in your stride, smile about it, and move on Subhanallah sometimes they're looking for attention. So they don't even know what happened. And they're not interested in knowing what happened. They simply want to swipe at you. And they know they're going to enjoy the swipe, because according to them, you are worth investing in,
in terms of their time, their effort, their intellect, their money, and so much more. I had a video someone made about me. And I was quite surprised because it was based on falsehood. It was not true. It was concocted. It was a clear swipe. And I enjoyed it. The brother who sent it to me, I said, I'm excited about this, because you know what? Imagine they've, if they could utilize so much of energy, time, effort and planning and so much more for me. Wow. SubhanAllah Am I not that important? So panela immediate meaning you know, I, I don't deserve that. But Mashallah they think I do. Whoa, Alhamdulillah. Imagine I just said something, and they understood 20 things out of that which were
all out of context, or not even proper, not even true. Or I visited somewhere or or perhaps I gave a talk at somebody's function or whatever. And people got so excited. They started making videos about it. Oh, wow. So para la. That's how I look at it. If you think you're gonna mean by making videos and saying false statements and swearing and calling me any name under the sun. Who, huh? You know what? the wrong person? For me, I take it the other way around. You've just, you've just made me think a lot more that in your life, I'm so important that you had to invest in me. Mashallah. Well, the reason why I'm making this video is because I can laugh at it. But a lot of you out there need
help processing what people say about you negatively. Think about what I've said today, Don't take it to heart. You know, just let it fly off. Don't even bother responding. They sometimes they want that response. Leave it so what if you lose a few friends? No problem. It's healthy, to have a few people who really hate you. They don't need to love you. Sometimes we become depressed because we want people to love us who really don't love us. And we are kind hearted. So we can't imagine why people would think bad about us. So it stresses us and depresses us. Don't worry, it says about them not about us. They they will never be a time when everyone loves you. It's impossible. If it didn't
happen to the profits that are seldom How is it going to happen to you? So with me and hamdulillah I'm really really excited. You know, I see people I even see scholars whom I used to look up to,
say, the nastiest and worst things, you know, they literally firing from their hips, and if they think it's going to come in any way. Trust me, I feel sorry for them. They need medication, I promise you. I feel so sorry for them. I mean, imagine we used to look up to you, man. And
we've become so important in your life that you actually have to take the time to plan prepare, and invest in saying bad and evil about me a small boy Subhana Allah who may Allah make it easy for everyone yay man. Allahu Akbar, Allah Allah forgive us and grant us ease and goodness. And Mashallah, don't worry, it hasn't bothered me and it won't, and I don't want it to bother you. And don't let it smile.
It's contagious. Right. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
