Oh, Allah, I seek refuge in you from

00:00:01 --> 00:00:05

worry and grief, from incapacity and laziness,

00:00:05 --> 00:00:07

from cowardice and miserliness,

00:00:07 --> 00:00:10

from being heavily in debt, and from being

00:00:10 --> 00:00:10

overpowered

00:00:11 --> 00:00:11

by others.

00:00:15 --> 00:00:17

The first few words of that du'a.

00:00:18 --> 00:00:19

Do you see the first few words?

00:00:24 --> 00:00:25

Right? I seek refuge in you the way

00:00:25 --> 00:00:28

we seek refuge from shaitan. I seek refuge

00:00:28 --> 00:00:29

in you from what?

00:00:30 --> 00:00:31

Alham

00:00:31 --> 00:00:32

wal Hazan.

00:00:41 --> 00:00:44

Whatever it is, they're speaking to something that's

00:00:44 --> 00:00:45

directly mental health related,

00:00:46 --> 00:00:48

and here is the prophet

00:00:48 --> 00:00:49

who I just told you is perfection embodied.

00:00:49 --> 00:00:50

Why does he get up on every day,

00:00:50 --> 00:00:50

Because

00:00:57 --> 00:00:59

they're human emotions.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:03

Because they're human emotions,

00:01:04 --> 00:01:05

and he is human, sallallahu

00:01:06 --> 00:01:06

alaihi wasallam,

00:01:07 --> 00:01:09

because he is a living example that teaches

00:01:09 --> 00:01:10

all the rest of us how to live

00:01:10 --> 00:01:13

life, how to do this thing called life,

00:01:14 --> 00:01:15

and that they're going to be amongst his

00:01:15 --> 00:01:17

companions and the people, all of us, the

00:01:17 --> 00:01:19

many generations thereafter of Muslims,

00:01:20 --> 00:01:23

and people, humans, who are going to experience

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

worry and grief, and by example he is

00:01:25 --> 00:01:27

teaching this is what you do.

00:01:28 --> 00:01:30

You ask Allah for protection from that,

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

but you don't deny it, you don't hide

00:01:32 --> 00:01:34

it under the rug, you don't make believe

00:01:34 --> 00:01:35

that it's not there,

00:01:36 --> 00:01:38

and you don't shame people and stigmatize people

00:01:38 --> 00:01:40

and that Ayib balik and bat on you

00:01:40 --> 00:01:41

and shame on you, and you don't have

00:01:41 --> 00:01:43

enough iman, and you're not praying enough, and

00:01:43 --> 00:01:44

go read Quran.

00:01:45 --> 00:01:46

That's not the answer

00:01:48 --> 00:01:50

because it's not the prophetic example.

00:01:52 --> 00:01:54

The prophetic example is you face it.

00:01:55 --> 00:01:56

You ask Allah for assistance,

00:01:56 --> 00:01:59

and then you go do something about it,

00:01:59 --> 00:02:00

as they're going to see here shortly.
