We as Muslims, take the word Muslim, take the word Islam, Islam is an Arabic word, and it means submission. And in the religious context, it means submission, yes, submission and to what submission and to the will of the Almighty submission to the will of our maker.

You cemento talking about life as much as we may wish otherwise. Hello, the holofoil motor will hire Talia Beluga calm life is a test. Life is a test with good times and bad times. And life is completely unpredictable and uncontrollable. And this year has proven this to be completely true.

00:01:19--> 00:01:35

As the days and weeks and months continue to pass, and as we continue to live in incredible uncertainty. And as this micro organism, invisible to the naked eye multiplies so rapidly,

00:01:37--> 00:02:33

wrecking havoc along its path. At this point, at this juncture, many brothers and sisters, it's important to remind ourselves that even though this year feels so badly out of control, there might actually be an ounce of comfort in knowing that there was never any full control in the first place. As believers when talking about this concept of submission, this concept of surrender, we realize that life yes does bring up challenging situations. That makes us want to try and control every single aspect, hoping to influence the outcome hoping to influence the results. But this makes us anxious with worry. It makes our minds continue to spin contemplating what actions slash decisions

00:02:33--> 00:03:02

we can take and make to get what we want. Now, as we all know, plotting and spinning and manipulating a situation rarely brings us what we desire. And subsequently it makes us feel even worse in the process. Every single time you try to do this. I'm sure you relate. You are presented with a roadblock.
