So if you notice in all of the tantrums that shavon throws and really we can call them tantrums because he's constantly complaining about something and screaming about something and challenging Allah subhanaw taala you know, which is a stark difference from the shape bond that we described before he finds himself in the situation of disobedience. You know, when he's speaking to Allah subhana wa tada with this audacity that he has and talking about how Allah subhanho wa Taala led him astray and so on so forth. One of the amazing things about what shavon is saying is that he does not once mention any of the favors of Allah subhanaw taala upon him, like he doesn't say to Allah

00:00:54--> 00:01:32

subhanaw taala be emailed to me, by the way that you exalted me, I'm going to do this to other people. Instead, he is he attributes to Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhana wa Tada. humiliating him, he doesn't think the last penalty he doesn't even mention that Allah subhanaw taala put him in paradise literally gave him access and a position that no other Jin has ever reached before him or after him. And you know, he's just constantly mentioning what Allah subhanaw taala did to him in regards to evil which in reality he did to himself. Now the reason why that's so significant is because of the lack of mention of those blessings that Allah subhanaw taala mentions in the Quran

00:01:32--> 00:02:04

will be near material Be careful with that you know, speak about the Blessings of your Lord not in a boasting fashion but when you speak always incorporated hamdulillah always incorporate optimism. Always incorporate you know what the prophets lie some called to head this be net Rahmatullah to speak of the blessings of Allah and what that means is, you know, someone asks you how you're doing, you don't say it's terrible. It's been a long day. I have a cold, those types of things you said hamdulillah The day was wonderful. Everything went well at work, which is rare for many of us, right? And everything was great at home and everything is going well. Alhamdulillah. To head this

00:02:04--> 00:02:42

mean at Mattila to speak about the blessings of Allah, not with any reason, not with any boasting just to show that you're grateful. shavon doesn't do that once. In fact, the only time that he says the word Rob be my lord is when he wants something from a loss pentatonic. Right? That sounds familiar, right? When he calls upon Allah, that's when he says, My Lord, but other than that, not a single mention of the position that Allah has given him the agenda that Allah has given him the the the favor that Allah has bestowed upon him the way that he lost panatela saved him when he lost paradise and the angels to destroy the jinn and so on so forth. And that attitude that behavior is

00:02:43--> 00:03:21

condemned by Allah subhanaw taala both when it's a collective behavior of a community and one it is the behavior of an individual. So for example, a loss us to Benny is sloppy, yeah, Benny is sloppy with Kuru netmeds. La alaykum, remember the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala upon you and a loss as well and the foul ball to C'mon, Ilana mean, I chose you above all other nations I've given you things and that I have not given to any nation before you. And you don't want to attribute that to Allah subhanho wa Taala as a nation, in fact, you only turn to Allah, when the Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala starts to descend upon you. And you blame a lot you blame the messenger that Allah

00:03:21--> 00:04:03

sent to you. And you continue to be arrogant and ungrateful. Right? So this concept of ascribing only evil to Allah and only good to themselves, is a concept that that's highlighted throughout the Quran. And it's the opposite of what the prophet slicin was when he used to say, and hydrocodone lluvia de quoi several laser like that all good belongs to you, Oh Allah, and evil is not to be attributed to you. And we even see that on the day of judgment when I last palitana mentions the disbeliever being raised the one who is wicked being raised and he says to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah when he's raised blind, Lima hotshot attorney Atma wakad quinto basura Why did you raise me

00:04:03--> 00:04:44

blind when I used to be able to see, it's like he you know, Subhanallah he's not attributing the blessing of Allah bustle, the blessing of being able to see for all of those years to Allah subhanaw taala and studies attributing the blindness to Allah subhanaw taala. And he's showing this entitled behavior that I used to be able to see why did you take that away from me, not you, you You created me in a way that I was able to see and then you decided to take that not what did I do to deserve my, you know, losing the eyesight that you gave to me? He simply says to Allah subhanaw taala Lima hotshot attorney Ama wakad quintuple Sierra, why did you raise me blind and I used to be able to

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

see. So when you speak, speak in a way that that that reflects not the behavior of shape on but the behavior of the profit slice them, not the behavior of the wicked of bending a slide but the behavior of Musashi is someone who constantly mentions the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala fine

00:05:00--> 00:05:25

that fine line where you're saying Alhamdulillah without saying like, look at me but you're saying and hamdulillah I am a humble servant that does not deserve what Allah subhana wa tada has given to me but Allah subhanaw taala bestowed this upon me without going, you know, excessively into the details and so on so forth in a way that you're boasting. Otherwise you're just like the shape on where you only attribute evil to Allah subhanho wa Taala and you only attribute good to yourself.
