We learn the lesson of counting our blessings.
Counting our blessings.
Allah He we are muslims born Muslims and reverts new Muslims Alhamdulillah but we don't have to go through
what the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu went through what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went through? And do you know how you understand a blessing? You understand it
in two ways, firstly, by learning history, and this was what we opened the series with the importance of studying history, learning the way of the people before, it's very important when the Sahaba were being persecuted Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam would direct them to the people that were persecuted before for saying La ilaha illAllah Muhammad for saying La ilaha illallah for saying there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would teach them how they were persecuted, a way far more severe than what they were facing history helps you understand your blessing, sometimes you in a difficulty. But when you look back at
history, you start seeing your difficulty as a blessing in comparison to those before. It's a blessing, it could have been worse.
So we recognize blessings by studying history.
And this is the Quranic narrative as well, because we know Surah Yusuf, for example, was revealed during the hardest times after Khadija passed away. After Bhutan, he passed away after he was stoned apart if salAllahu alayhi wasallam the most difficult of times, and they said lo Castellina. If you can, perhaps share with us stories. Perhaps Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the story of use of
to ease the difficulty upon the Sahaba of the Allahu Akbar Jemaine and the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Yusuf alayhi salam and Iacobelli salah they were tested for more than 50 years. Allah knows best, a rough calculation more than 50 years. But they came out on top. So don't lose hope or believers. It's only five years it's only 10 years. It's only 23 years.
Don't lose hope. Allah in Nasrallah, he Corrib. Indeed the help of ALLAH is near. So we understand the blessing by firstly studying history.
