This exclusivity is actually a cleansing. It's a mental, psychological, emotional, spiritual cleansing of things we assume to be better or to be perfect. And now we're saying no perfection belongs only with Allah.

00:00:14--> 00:00:59

And Allah is saying, you submit hula Hema for Samoa, you will fill out all creation, when it comes to declaring perfection only declares perfection of Allah. So this actually does have an immediate implication that we as Muslims become critical, investigative questioning cynical of anything that's presented to us, we want to question it, we want to check its veracity before we jump on, before we say this is good, you know, and how, and that's at an intellectual level. But even at a social cultural level, what happens with teenage girls, or boys even, right, your girl wants to take off her hijab, I stopped because she studied the issue and is now finally convinced that hijab is

00:00:59--> 00:01:43

oppression of women, none of that no, the girls in school that are popular that all the boys give attention to the girls that look so pretty, the girls that look so smart and popular, the ones that are so intelligent, the ones that are so confident and outgoing, none of them are wearing hijab, I want to be like that. I feel inferior. I feel like I'm weird. And in a corner, and I'm, you know, these are the examples of the kind of perfection I want to have. And I by doing this thing is making me imperfect, I could do better. Right? So there's an inferiority complex. And there's, I want to be like them, because they're better. This is, there's a superiority to what they have. And I want that

00:01:43--> 00:02:05

I want some of that for myself. And so when that's the case, and then the girl says, I don't want to wear this anymore. I don't want to do this. I feel like I'm being suppressed. I want to I want to feel free. You know, I want to feel Are you free? Because you look like you're wearing uniform, like the rest of the Instagram. You know, self absorbed. Selfie. Nuff. See takers?

00:02:06--> 00:02:17

Right? You all look the same. So you're like, ah, all the people who wear hijab are the same. All the people who take them off look the same. You guys even get the same fake surgeries.

00:02:18--> 00:02:48

You know? So there's a uniform on that side, too. There's a surrender. Why? Because they've accepted a concept of perfection. There. So this exclusivity is actually a cleansing. It's a mental, psychological, emotional, spiritual cleansing of things we assumed to be better or to be perfect. And now we're saying no perfection belongs only with Allah. Right? Okay, so now let's talk a little bit about adaptivity. Okay, but now the last thing about this if you thought it would never come? Yeah, it's here.

00:02:49--> 00:02:53

It's actually something that occurred to me this morning. I didn't realize it until this morning.

00:02:55--> 00:03:38

There's a spiritual journey, defined inside the Cya in its sequence. The first imagine a person who just realizes who Allah truly is, and how they haven't done right by Allah. And they want to do right by Allah now. Right? They want to understand Allah properly. When they want to understand Allah properly, and they want to remove all improper or misguided notions of Allah, they are pursuing that this be of Allah isn't it? Once they pursue that as we have Allah, something starts a feeling starts getting stronger inside this young man, woman, old man, woman, you know what that is, if there's anyone that deserves loyalty and obedience, anyone that deserves that I should follow

00:03:38--> 00:04:19

them no matter what that is who, thus Allah because he's so perfect in every way, the more I learn about him, the more loyal to him I become, the more I surrender myself to him, the more I given to him, the more I want to give myself in service to Him, I accept him as my Malik, law, whole milk, the whole milk. Now, the moment you do that, you start meeting resistance. You start meeting, you start getting criticized, you start getting questions. Oh, you want to follow this Islam? Or what about this contradiction? And this contradiction? What about this thing in this thing? And this say, what about this barbarism? What about this ugliness? What about you, you're not that perfect, you're

00:04:19--> 00:04:59

And here you are filling yourself with positive emotions towards who? Allah you're looking at the positive and all things yeah Allah, you guided me to this truth. You gave me the courage to stand by it. You chose me among the very few of your slaves who are willing to who are who want to obey you, Allah, you open that door of guidance for me, I will not be unappreciative of that the whole hand.

00:05:22--> 00:06:00

And once you develop that positive mindset, that hummed based mindset, then doesn't matter what happens to you you're okay with that. You're comfortable. if trouble comes your way difficulties come your way job loss comes your way financial loss comes your way. Marriage trouble comes your way age children trouble comes your way parent trouble comes your way sibling trouble culture trouble doesn't matter what kind of trouble comes your way?
