I hear this often too, this idea that

00:00:02 --> 00:00:02

the believer,

00:00:03 --> 00:00:05

the mukmin, does not actually fall into any

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

sort of depression or ikhtihad, like, as you

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

mentioned. Because I feel like we've gone far

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

from our understanding of our

00:00:11 --> 00:00:13

of the tradition of our prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:00:13 --> 00:00:15

wa sallam where there was an entire year

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

in his life in his seerah called the

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

Amul Husun or the year of sadness, the

00:00:19 --> 00:00:21

year of sorrow, the year of grief.

00:00:21 --> 00:00:24

He had multiple losses that happened. And when

00:00:24 --> 00:00:26

you think about that year, even the companions

00:00:26 --> 00:00:29

around him were very concerned about how deep

00:00:29 --> 00:00:30

that grief was.

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

And yet we know at the same time

00:00:32 --> 00:00:33

that prophet Muhammad,

00:00:35 --> 00:00:36

peace be upon him, was,

00:00:37 --> 00:00:39

right, the best of all creation.

00:00:39 --> 00:00:41

So you have someone who

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

is so incredibly connected to Allah,

00:00:44 --> 00:00:46

to God. And at the same time,

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

that does not take away from feeling grief

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

or sorrow.

00:00:50 --> 00:00:51

And every day that he would wake up,

00:00:51 --> 00:00:53

we know that there's a thought, you know,

00:00:53 --> 00:00:55

kind of remembrances of the Sabahim as of

00:00:55 --> 00:00:57

morning evening. And one of my favorite is

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

the one that he says in the mornings

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

where he says it starts off

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

with. Will I seek refuge in you from

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

worry and grief? And he acknowledging

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

that these are real human emotions even as

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

as as best of a person you are.

00:01:11 --> 00:01:14

You're still going to experience these emotions because

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

Allah created these emotions.

00:01:16 --> 00:01:18

So when I hear people say this, it's

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

almost like we've forgotten part of our tradition.
