Episode Notes

After the defeat of the Muslims in the Battle of Uhud, Allah revealed aya 139 of Surat Aali Imran, giving believers timeless lessons in dealing with dejection. Allah advises us against allowing failure and disappointment to wear us down, describing with great precision the state of grief people will enter after a serious blow. He tells us not to let this sadness overwhelm us and not to beat ourselves up because our faith in Allah has placed us in a supreme position. While situations change, Allah is a constant source of empowerment.

Salam Alaikum everyone. Welcome to amused by the Koran a series in which I love sharing with you things I find amazing about Tolkien today, a small expression from the Quran that is an insight to depression and sadness allows, it just says, Well, you know what I want to Milan in quantum meaning, don't be don't feel weak, don't be weakened. What happened in Arabic is actually a feeling of not being able to exercise change. In other words, no matter what you do, things aren't changing, things aren't getting better, or your best attempts have failed. And now you feel incapable of succeeding. When one when that starts settling in, like all my efforts have failed, or I haven't been able to

00:00:47--> 00:01:23

accomplish, then the next phase Well, I don't know. And then don't be in a state of grief, sadness kicks in, you become that that original paralysis, that original, you know, failure, it then leads you right into hosen. So Alaska doesn't just say don't be sad, he actually went to the root cause the root cause was some kind of failure, some kind of disappointment that kind of wore you down and it started taking away your own confidence, your own belief that you can actually do better, you know, Subhan Allah, so Allah azza wa jal, and he did this by the way, one of the places he did this is in the Battle of Ohio, where Muslims suffered amazing amount of loss and incredible amount of

00:01:23--> 00:02:01

loss. But he turned that loss into something positive he actually in the very next ayah says em syscom Karma Karma so Karma Karma slow you know, if you've been injured and so on the other side has been injured to what is called a young w happiness. Now, toughen up, these are days that flip between people you're gonna be you're gonna have easy days, you're gonna have hard days, don't let this overwhelm you. And just, you know, beat yourself up as a matter of fact, hosen is a state in which a person is actually torturing themselves. The sadness is when you're beating yourself up, a situation beat you up. And now you allow yourself to get beat up on top of that. Allah says, Don't

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

put yourself in that position will enter Milan in contempt, meaning you're going to be in the supreme position so long as you're, you're totally your total believers. In other words, these situations they come and go, but Allah is a constant, oh, you never lost Allah, the One treasure that you don't, you know, once you lose that you lose everything and when you have that, nothing else counts. Nothing else is a serious loss. So long as you have that you are never ever, ever going to be in a state where you need to be depressed, that he no one attacks him so so beautiful metalizer which will make us the people who don't feel overwhelmed when facing facing failure and
