My brothers and sisters you need to understand if you've been divorced and you feel it was unfair or you feel you could have made it work, but your ex spouse is just not interested. You need to know something. Allah says in the Quran, giving you a lot of comfort.

00:00:18--> 00:00:21

What a federal law you need

00:00:24--> 00:01:15

it he wacana law, who was he and Hakeem verse number 130 of Surah An Nisa. If the two separate in divorce, the two have divorced, Allah will bless both of them with his virtue, because he definitely is the owner of great virtue, and he is very wise. Allah has broad virtue Subhana Allah. So remember, divorce is not the end of your life, it could be the beginning of a much happier life. And usually, if you have faith and you keep trying, it is the beginning of a much happier life. How many times have we heard of people who've been divorced more than once, and then they marry for the third or fourth time and they are so happy, they forget all the hardship that they went through the first

00:01:15--> 00:02:02

time, the second time, etc. So my brothers and sisters, it is not the end of the world. So Allah says, when you separate, be respectful, you don't need to engage in mudslinging speaking bad about the other, you need to worry about yourself to the degree that you ask Allah for goodness, not just for you, but even for your ex spouse, more so if that ex spouse is a parent to some of the children that you have in common together. So you need to make sure the children grow up respecting the person you disagreed with, for as long as that is possible. Yes, if they have very bad habits, for example, if they are abusers, and if they have engaged in huge crimes, you may want to save and

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

protect your children to a certain degree, but be very fair and just about it. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the same surah O you who believe, be fair stand upon justice, bear witness for the sake of Allah, even if it is against yourselves, your parents or your relatives, whether they are wealthy or poor, Allah comes before all of them. That is verse number 135 of surah, Nisa be just be fair, even if it's against yourself, don't say things or do things or pass judgment that is very unfair. May Allah subhanahu wa to Allah grant us protection. So that type of a crisis, where we have discord where we have so much of turbulence in the home, let's learn to be fair, let's

00:02:48--> 00:03:08

learn to give people a chance. Let's learn to try our best and ultimately, if it does end in divorce, it's not the end of the world. We should concentrate on building ourselves and we should concentrate on trying again by the will of Allah and wishing well for our ex partners. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us goodness
