I'm amazed from the character of the believer. When Allah subhanaw taala gives him something. When Allah grants him a bounty, a mercy, a gift, he thinks Allah subhanaw taala. He acknowledges that is from Allah subhanaw taala. When Allah subhanaw taala test same, yes, patience, for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, then the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Danica in learning moment, this character, this quality, this trait, that when Allah subhanaw taala gives you something good to thank Allah subhanaw taala for and you acknowledge is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and when Allah subhanaw taala tests, your patience for the sake of Allah azza wa jal and you do not react in an

00:12:55--> 00:12:58

Islamic way or negative way in every sense of says.

00:13:00--> 00:13:09

In the moment, this character is only limited to the character of a believer and I believe x log this

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

only I believe are things Allah subhanho wa Taala for his name a

00:13:15--> 00:13:22

believer has patience over the tests and trials Allah subhanaw taala tests him and a believer, other people rebelled.

00:13:24--> 00:13:27

Other people react negatively and islamically.

00:13:28--> 00:13:48

In a very bad manner and why. But we as believers, we thank Allah for everything that Allah subhanaw taala has given us and we are patients of any test that Allah subhanaw taala tests us we are patient, some of them if you are tested right now in your in your home, in your family,

00:13:49--> 00:13:58

and you socialize amongst your people within yourself. You have personal challenges that you are encountering, this is the foundation Allah subhanaw taala they are true believer.

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

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

everything but I'm not happy at the end of the day.

00:14:35--> 00:14:36

Not happy

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

but still discontent.

00:14:41--> 00:14:56

Everything that I had given them they're not happy, they're not satisfied. But yes, I believe Allah Subhana Allah will grant you the nirma the bounty of satisfaction and contentment even though you only have little sustenance. You thank Allah

00:14:58--> 00:14:59
