00:00:01--> 00:00:38

You know, the beauty of this is that this entire discussion of belief in Divine Decree and knowing that the pen already wrote, not when the heavens and the earth started with 50,000 years before the heavens and the earth, the creation even started, what it does is it establishes the trust that the believer has an Allah subhanaw taala, to work with Allah to completely rely and trust in Allah subhana wa tada and trust, that what he wrote was written for our good as well, and that everything happens for wisdom, and that, you know, sometimes we can't figure it out. But at the same time, we are comforted and we are content, we are content, knowing that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows what

00:00:38--> 00:01:12

he's doing. You know, a lot of times we try to play God and we try to say, Well, if this would have happened, or did that really have to happen for this to happen? Or why didn't this happen? Or why am I even here? Why did Allah decide to do this? Well, first of all, you know, let's first establish the basis that there's a creator and that there is meaning. And then you don't decide to do or you don't decide what the creator decides, at that point. You know, you have to submit your own logic. And you also have to submit your own idea of what should and shouldn't happen to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. That's why I'm loving Ambassador de la on who he said that when a person establishes their

00:01:12--> 00:01:52

belief in God and the Divine Decree, they really establish their tohave they establish their belief in Allah. And when they have deficiencies in their belief in God or in their belief in Divine Decree, then they also have a deficiency until hate it shows they don't trust Allah subhanaw taala. And they doubt some of the abilities and the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the believer is really at ease, you know, he's at ease with the writing, knowing that everything that happens in this life only happens by the will of Allah. And there's a very beautiful Hadith, or the context of Hadith that we've actually already mentioned. robots to Osama totally Allah and the great companion,

00:01:52--> 00:02:36

he, he says to his son, alwaleed, at the time of his death, he's giving him his last words, his will. And he says to him, yeah, boo Nia, oh, my dear son, in nucca, land taggi, the farmer happy cotton email, you will not taste the sweetness of the reality of faith had to attack lemma Anima or Saba lahmacun neoplatonic, until you come to this conclusion, the satisfaction, this knowledge that, that everything that has struck you was not meant to have missed you won the afpak let me use the back and that which missed you was not meant to I've come to you. And then he quoted the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and know that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:02:36--> 00:03:10

sallam said that the first thing a lot created, or of the first things that a lot created was the pen. And that was 50,000 years before the heavens and the earth, and so on, so forth. So he's telling his son, you will not taste the sweetness of the reality of email the reality of faith until you understand this that the pen has already written. And when you come to that comfort, then you'll be able to taste the sweetness of email. Now, somehow, what he's mentioning here, he's not saying that you won't be a believer, if you're not pleased with the decree of Allah subhanaw taala. In order to be a believer in order to be a movement, you have to know that Allah subhanaw taala

00:03:10--> 00:03:45

decreed. And you know, you have to you have to have no doubt whatsoever that Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed in accordance with his knowledge and that everything happens for a reason and so on so forth. But there's a difference between that knowledge and actually appreciating it and actually coming to terms with it, and actually saying, Alhamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala gave me what was better for me, though, I know that though, I might have thought that something else was better for me. It's, you know, what's the difference between a person who eats through a feeding tube who's got a tube up their nose, and they're barely You know, they're surviving through that food coming up and

00:03:45--> 00:04:20

actually tasting good food, which is known as a Willa bill cover, to be pleased and satisfied with the decree of Allah subhana wa Tada, where you're not only you not only have this piece, or you not only have this knowledge that you know what it happened for a reason to have the deal. And sometimes our attempt at ILA is you know, we're saying all praises due to a loss penalty is almost like a qualifier for our complaints like will complain about the decree of Allah Subhana diamond say, but it happens a dealer, right. So we've, you know, in essence, we've done everything that contradicts this so called gratitude. But then we just throw in that statement to sound religious, right?

00:04:20--> 00:04:53

There's a difference between that and actually saying, Alhamdulillah I know that Allah subhanaw taala knows what I don't want a Santa crochet, and you might hate something and it's better for you. So that's where you taste the sweetness of faith and you're able to come to terms with your faith. When you know the storm hits you, you're able to weather that storm. And this gives you much more you know, the very famous hadith of an ambassador the Allahu taala and who we have in our bustle, the Allah Han who says that the prophets lie Selim was riding in front of me. And then he stopped and he started to give me advice. He turned around, he started to give me advice. And he said, Oh,

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

young man, let me give you some words of advice. Allah be mindful of a lot. You have a loss of management Allah will preserve us.

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

follow the law, be mindful of a lot and you will find him in front of you. And he said were insulted and if you ask ask of Allah, and if you seek help seek help from Allah subhanaw taala. And the prophets I send them said, know that if the if everyone was to gather together to benefit you with something, Lemmy And Pharaoh can be sure they will not be able to benefit you with anything Illa catabolic, except that a loss parents owner has written it for you. So it doesn't matter what connections you have, and who can do what for you, they can't do it for you, unless Allah wrote it for you. And if that what and if they all came together to harm you with something, let me or the

00:05:36--> 00:06:10

Royal Commission, they would not be able to harm you with anything except that Allah subhanho wa Taala has written it for you refer to a plan which refer to so have the pens have been lifted, and the pages have dried. In essence, what it what this does is it empowers you. So number one, you know, this, this gives you peace of mind that everything happens for a reason that Allah subhanaw taala doesn't allow anything to happen without purpose. Right? Number two, you don't kill yourself over if I would have done this, then this might have happened. And if I would have done that, or if this would have happened, then this would have happened. Right? Because the Prophet slicin um said,

00:06:10--> 00:06:45

Don't say the word low if, because it opens the doors of shape. And, you know, it also causes us not to fear people but to only fear Allah subhanho to Allah. You know, a lot of times we get overly paranoid about things. So for example, you know, when something bad happens to us, the first question is who put the evil eye on me, the evil eye exists and who envy me and that that exists as well and who tried to harm me and so on so forth. But at the end of the day, Allah is more powerful than the evil eye, which is why all of us about the evil eye are really putting your trust in Allah subhanaw taala is more powerful than people trying to harm you and their plots against you. So you

00:06:45--> 00:07:24

you seek you seek that protection from Allah subhanaw taala because they can't harm you, without a loss of pantiles permission, even shape on the profits license that don't curse the shape on because when you curse the shape on jaquard, he becomes greater hatay acetal caliphates until he becomes like as big as a home. Why because you've given him more power than he actually has. He says instead say Bismillah say In the name of Allah. And when you do that shape on becomes smaller than a fly. Because you're in essence saying that Allah is more powerful than the shape on so it gives you complete Tilak could complete trust. And if you are able to master this law master this pleasure

00:07:24--> 00:07:41

then your affair in this world is amazing because the profits licenses adds up in the Unreal moment. How amazing is the affair of the believer, when good comes to Him then He praises a lot he thinks Allah subhanaw taala and that's better for him. And when hardship comes to him, he's patient and he still thinks a lot and seeks to reward and that's better for him.
