We are struggling with this difficulty, this hardship. And yes, we will preach and promote the taking of precautions. Because definitely that does help. We're taught as people who believe that everything is predestined, no doubt, we're also taught that nothing can happen to us except that which the Almighty has willed for us or has written for us. But we're also taught that the Almighty has given us a certain capacity that we can use we should be using in order to achieve that which we believe is beneficial for us, and that which will protect us from harm. So he's given us a capacity and he's told us, I want you to do this, and I want you to stay away from this. And we're supposed
to be using that capacity to achieve what he has ordained. However, he definitely knows the outcome. You know, time I always say is a creature of Allah subhanho wa Taala. One day, he will actually get rid of time,
he will cause the death of time itself and the tenses that he created. You know, the past tense is a creature of Allah. The present tense is a creature of Allah, the future tense is a creature of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So
there will come a time when there will just be eternity Subhan-Allah, and for us, my beloved brothers, my sisters, what we need to realize is, Allah created us within what we know as present tense, we will face challenges Allah wants us to go through whatever he has ordained for us and to pass the test. He knows how we will fare because he knows the future. You know, we believe the knowledge of Allah is such that he knows absolutely everything. He knows the past the present the future, he even knows that which was never and is never going to happen. If it were to have happened, how it would have happened. That is part of the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Like we say; --ya'lamu ma kana wama yakunu, 6 00:02:09,900 --> 00:02:15,810 wama lam yakun iza kana kaifayakunu-- that explains exactly what I said earlier.
