servants of Allah and Allah Allah and of Adam will begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala we praise Him we seek his assistance and guidance and we seek refuge in him from the evil of ourselves and the adverse consequences of our deeds. And we testify then Whomsoever He guides not can this guide and whomsoever He must guides, none can guide and we request praises and blessings on our messenger, our teacher, our Master, our leader Mohammed Abdullah sung Allahu alayhi wa sallam I've ever witnessed that there's no one worthy of worship besides one Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his message.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, it is from the universal laws of Allah subhanho wa taala. That the life of this world will give us days that are for us, and days that are against us.
And it is from the Sunnah of Allah subhanho wa Taala the universal principles of this life, that nothing in this life will remain,
every period will have a beginning, but it also will have an end. Everything that exists will exist within expiry length.
And it is also o sevens of Allah. No children of Adam, from the universal laws of Allah governing the life of this world, that insane and mankind will be anxious beings. As we learned in the opening verses I recited Allah subhanho wa Taala said in an exam the Holy alula indeed mankind has been created in an anxious state. And with anxiousness and the reality of the life of this world that we will have days for us and days against us. It's only natural that an element known as stress will also be part and parcel of the life of this world.
Stress is a difficulty for mankind.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being the human being himself, he also stressed and we read about his stress in the Quran. And in one verse in particular in Surah, two calf which we recite every Friday for Allah and Allah Qaddafi will never circa Allah,
in the mute mean will be heavy and heavy the acid Allah highlights to us the state of the messenger one of stress for the difficulty he received from the very same people He came to save. His worry for them was their safety and protection from entry into the hellfire. And their attitude towards him, was one of total inmates. He stressed about this something Allahu Allah he wasn't.
But we must understand no servants of Allah. That was all these universal values and principles governing the life of this world. Another universal reality is that Allah subhanho wa Taala
I will never ever leave mankind astray. And that for every sickness Allah has revealed its cure. And if stress is a sickness, then no doubt, Allah has revealed its cure. And if we look into the Quran and the Sunnah, we find cures related to the sickness of stress from two angles, one a contextual angle, and the second, the actual cure to the ailment and
let's discuss the contextual angle.
The Sharia of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was revealed with mighty context to help us appreciate the reality of our circumstances and situations. And when it comes to the life of this world are servants of Allah, no children of Adam, ALLAH SubhanA wa parada has taught us through His Messenger, that if Allah subhanho wa taala, that takes us to something that Allah Subhana Allah entire that will take us through it. For Allah has revealed that he will never ever burden a soul with a difficulty beyond that souls ability to manage and tap. This is the promise of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and there's no one more truthful and honest than Allah subhanho wa Taala in speech and
statement, woman have stuck with me and Allah He de la Omen Ursula could mean Allah he had eaten as Allah subhana wa Jaredite reveals
Allah the ultimate, the divine, the truthful one, he reveals that he will never burden a soul with a difficulty with a task with a circumstance with the situation that is beyond that souls ability to manage this is the context that Allah reveals for his context that helps us manage the initial shock of different circumstances that we face. We face very circumstance in the first quarter of the second us, Allah highlights particularly the most difficult of circumstances for mankind, that which causes true anxiety and stress for Allah says, Whenever you want a condition in mineral fault, you will indeed be tested. With many things with fear will joueur and hunger will not simulate loss of
financial standing and material whelming
will enforce death, with the Murad last of your harvests and agriculture. These are matters that mankind stress about today, we stressing about inflation, we stressing about exams for the students that are here. We're stressing maybe because of difficult contractors. I hear this a lot from the UK especially after moving anyone does any building for you. It's stress can't get good worksman Here Hola. Hola, Mr. And everybody is stressing about different things. The high cost of living the prices continuously going up the news constantly bombarding us with negative sentiments and emotions.
And news, just recently, we opened the news to find out that they might be power cuts in the UK Subhanallah we grew up in Africa, you know, in public, I said above.
But perhaps for someone growing up here, they don't know anything about a power cut a loving Mustang. So that brings about stress. The certain people from mankind who read the read this news insight, we take it in our stride, we've dealt with it, two days, three days, one week, no power, we survived. But there's some people Subhanallah they read it and the whole day and the next day and the next day is totally deleted from their lives. And a manifestation of this state of being is felt by the spouses felt by their children. This is the law of our lives, our cancers in the Quran, he will test us with all these matters, that brings about stress, but Allah also give us context to
help us get through it. If Allah takes you into it, he will take you through it. That's number one.
Context number 207 of Allah.
The Sharia teaches us
and this is the belief of and assuming our gemera the belief of the first three generations of Islam, those who are upon that wish the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was upon that there's nothing like through complete evil.
Evil in absolute doesn't exist. Rather something is even more difficult from an angle, but not in competition. I'll give you an example. Let's say
a group of people went to a wedding and it was a massive way, say 5000 people and they cause very expensive cars were parked in the carpark and heavy hailstones fell from the skies and smashed on the windshields. What do you think the sentiment will be?
One of the people in the wedding venue, watching the windscreens being smashed, do you think there'll be laughing smiling, saying Allahu Akbar, they've been all they'll be stressed. What do you think? Will they be in a state of worry? Indeed they will be.
But ask you a question. What about the person who sells whiskey?
What would be the state of the person who has a business selling whiskey?
Is he concerned about the hailstones? What does he see business coming to him today find that every other day, I had to be patient in stress whether the people were stressless and today Allah has given me a day where other people are in stress, and I am stressed less because Hamdulillah I have business finally I have business. Maybe I wanted to go for hygiene. And I wondered when they would come and this year in China will go for Hajj. This is the Sunnah of Allah Subhana Allah Allah, he puts people in a situation for a upon a wisdom that only Allah subhana wa Tarryn.
And this is another context which the Sharia reveals to us, that Allah gives us days to worship Him through being thankful for those days that are for us. And he gives us days to worship Him through being patient, because those are days that are against us. And this is the meaning of what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when he said, A believer is always in a win win situation, when things go their way, they are thankful that is good for them for Allah, He wants them and when things don't go the way we are patient, and that is good for them for Allah subhanahu entera that he was there. That's context number two, context number three.
You were sent here to go gender. And the only stress that you should feel is the stressful new opportunity to build Janma is taken away.
This is the reality of us as believers in existence living today, and essential servants of Allah, no children of Adam. The Sharia law reveals the context that for a believer, there's no oh of obstacle, but rather the O of opportunity. For no matter what happens to you, if you're a believer, and you manage yourself upon the mandates of the messenger, Allah will reward you in the good times when you're thankful what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, you'll be rewarded. And in the biblical times the stressful times if you're a patient, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, you will be rewarded, and in these rewards Do we have the opportunity to build our
agenda, our agenda grows, as our rewards grow. So the only stress reliever feels is when the opportunity to go the agenda is taken away.
Context number four,
every day or service of Allah only gives you the pixel. And you can never, ever understand the picture from just a pixel or a handful of pixels. The entire picture is of ALLAH SubhanA who attack the day that you are going through is just a pixel. You have to be patient and gather more pixels. You cannot be anxious and act in haste. As Allah says, I must have shown when difficulty comes to man, he's withholding he acts in haste. He's anxious, you start judging Allah complaining about Allah and setting yourself up for failure, losing your opportunity to do Jana, you don't have the picture, you just have a pixel, why are you thinking of the most negative pictures from only a pixel
which could paint 1000 pictures?
The picture is with Allah. And I'll give you an example. We'll use somebody who Sam was abducted by his own brothers and thrown into a well as an infant. No doubt everyone reading that part of the story felt some that in their hearts, what happened to him.
But over five decades later, when a massive famine and drought was gonna hit the region, and because use of was at the helm, not only the Egypt survived seven years of famine, but also Palestine because of his excellence in managing the slaughterhouses during the seven years of rain. If you are asked five decades later, you should have been thrown into the world five decades earlier. Was that a good thing or a bad thing?
What would you say? You look back and say subhanallah, that boy wasn't in the well, there's no way he would have been in Egypt. And if he wasn't in Egypt, there was no way he was going to be in the slave market with the minister found. And if he wasn't in the slave market, there's no way he would have ended up being in prison. Because of the tests he went through in the minister's home. And if he wasn't in prison, he wouldn't have met the person who ended up working for the king who sold the dream that required us his expertise to be interpreted and usually wouldn't have been given the role. If use of wasn't in the world five decades before millions of people would have died five
decades later. We're not excusing the brothers for what they did. But that was a big sell five days.
Before five decades later we have the whole picture now we understand it better. This is a handful of context I shared with your servants of Allah and I'm sure none of Adam in our journey to help us deal with stress BarakAllahu li whenever he whenever anyone here we have you say the toppling of a quantum Apple to stuff that allow the Magellan anywhere to go Melissa you Mr. Muslimeen I mean clearly who pay for stuff you know who kind of fell or to do either in the mechanical world

Jesse's been laid off I can hurry her lazy morning.
America *ed up Allah had a better luck with W yeomen to German if he ILA from AdWords or kulula. See my customers online? Or something's of Allah what we shared was the context, but also the Sharia has revealed that the cure, the cure is for stress, what are they there are many we have a few moments allow me to share with you just to take you from the cues of stress taught to us by the prophets of Allah, Allah he was suddenly the son of servants of Allah. And we also learn this in the Quran. For in the opening verses that I recited to you Allah said in that inside the holy Pahala indeed inside has been created anxiously. What's in a state that brings about much stress to them if
they're musselshell Jesu and when difficult to fix them, they they become withholding, withholding in terms of their character withholding in terms of their ability to to exercise empathy, withholding in terms of the ability to be proactive, they become withholding, they become insecure and they become selfish. While there was some of the hate maneuver out and then when goodness is given to them, they hold on too tightly because they haven't forgotten about the difficult times. But Allah says in the new Salim except for those who are on their side, except for those who are upon this or that are servants of Allah, one of the viewers. In fact, the greatest killer for stress
is Salah, and entering into a meeting with the Lord of the Worlds The one who is in total control of the situation stressing you out. If it's to do with your exams, it is Allah who will assist you. If it's job security, it is Allah who will assist you. If it is a troublesome contractor. It is Allah who will support you and assist you and don't rush your Salah because the salah that you are in you are worshiping the one who is going to help you in the matter that is worrying you before the Salah and after the Sunnah, so don't worry and rush to the Salah, focus on your Salah, and that is what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say the lab edition of the Salah announced the other
announced that which brings a serenity which brings us peace which removes us from the circumstances and situations that we are in and raises us to a to a to a platform that is stressless that is wordiness the worship of Allah subhanho attack and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as we see in the hadith of origin others whenever something wanting him, he immediately engaged his lord in son, this is number one or seven Sahaba number two is the farm. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there is no one who sincerely seeks forgiveness from Allah continuously except that Allah subhanho wa Taala would lift their difficulties lift their worries and shower upon them
assistance in sustenance and help from areas that they never ever imagined. And when Allah he will be learning about Allah who I have enough stories from our teachers and the difficulties they went through and what does Allah open for them by them sincerely turning to Allah subhanho wa Taala seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala as we know, as the Sunnah teaches us that the Mercy of Allah is always descending, but it's our sins that creates a very over us preventing that mercy from reaching us. And when we seek to step out, holes are made into those barriers and the mercy of Allah slowly but surely reaches us. And we feel that mercy and we become elevated because of it. We
resonate with it, we become empowered by it. And then we give ourselves the chance to achieve our God given potential. As believers in numbers of Hemingway's had the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was free from sin, ALLAH forgive his past and his future, and though this was his faithful servant of Allah, He says that he never said the same thing except that he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala for forgiveness 70 times you
Nothing 100 times if this is the reality of Muhammad Ali Abdullah saga Allah Allah He was sent and what about you? And I? Also, how many times do we see a uniform? Keeping our tongues moist with is still, we see a lot of things we shouldn't see. And this doesn't help us. We speak a lot of things we shouldn't speak. This doesn't help us. We hear a lot of things we shouldn't listen to. This doesn't help us. Where are we from? Mr. Farah are servants of Allah, Allah children.
Whenever you're going through a difficulty, in a process, in an organization, in a school, in a business between you and other people, what is the solution to fix your relationship with them, you can't move forward. If the relationship with that person
between you both this anxiety exists is not going to get better if you don't fix the situation between between you and the person. If the situation between two parties arguing isn't fixed, the situation between them easily sorted out, no one is going to move forward.
So what makes sense to us are servants of Allah when we're going through difficult is it not most appropriate for us to fix our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala and so we can move forward is still a cure from the cures of stress. Also sevens of Allah, the morning and evening adopt, which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam guided us towards for him these Adguard do as asking ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada to assist us in our difficult do I was asking ALLAH SubhanA wa Jalla to prevent difficulties from reaching us. Do others ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Terra to save us from stress and anxiety, and to protect us from those matters that bring into our life stress and anxiety. These two
hours have been gathered by the scholars. And it's become so accessible to us in languages that we speak. In fact, there's applications that we can download onto our phones. And the account will be with us wherever we go. Because let's face it, we go everywhere with our phones, the fortress of a believer and history and Muslim is a wonderful app that is easy to download. It doesn't take much resources and then it all you need to manage your day and face your day in light of the universal values I shared with you regarding the life of don't forget the morning and evening a couple of sermons.
Plus cannot be so sermons of Allah and all children of Adam. Do not open the door to shaper. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the believer opens the door to Shaban by saying if,
if I'm, if I only did this, and if only this happened, and if only I understood, and if only so and so did something don't open the door to shape and by saying low.
This will only increase your stress.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the believer from low from opening the door to Shavon from saying low if only for what what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam guide us towards as an alternative. He guided us towards our goal, not tobacco. But our goal to what good is taking the means and putting your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala and if you want to take Allah and if it doesn't work, you know it's good for you because you took the means and good food festival Allah subhanho wa Taala is when you don't take the means and things go wrong. And then you blame it on Allah Subhana Allah dad is saying this is the better of Allah. This is what Allah Subhana Allah
degree, this is what Allah subhana wa Tada did. Yes, Allah decrees all but even the one of them some of the decrees of Allah as an example in the well of zamzam depends on the actions of Matt. By Allah's decree, Allah revealed that the that the words on Samson would come onto Earth, but whether it will be a stream, or it would be a well was left to her
and her actions, when she did what she did, it became a well not a stream, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the Sahaba, they will have mercy on her because of her actions as zamzam remainder. Well, if she didn't do what she did, he would have been a flowing stream SubhanAllah. So sometimes Allah by decree allows results to be based on how we act and this is known as a harmony, there is the other Alcone which is the universal factor of Allah which will be and this dependent machinery which refers to mankind taking the means. And this is what he said, when he was questioned once he went with the Sahaba towards Shem. And a message came up to say there's a
plague over there, people are dying, and remember to stop with the army and said, What should we do? And at the end, he decided we're going to go back to Medina. And when he made that decision, he was questioned and said, Oh, leader of the Muslims, are you running away from the culture of Allah? He said, Yes, I'm running away from the culture of Allah to the father of Allah. This is the thick of Allah why? I'm taking the means. And then someone from the Companions got up and said, You've done the right thing for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
They that if you find out of a plague existing in a place, no one outside of that area should go into it and no one inside of it should be the time of mine. That's a topic for another day because we all know with COVID and hedgerow and confinement and lock downs and so on and so forth. But that is a topic for another day and somebody who are servants of Allah, put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala and take the context that the Sharia has revealed and take the cues that the Sharia has revealed in dealing with stress, because stress can be an opportunity for a believer not an obstacle. If we look after Allah's teachings regarding it, remembering that there's no sickness
