Honorable Allah microm respected brothers, elders, mothers and sisters, as chef has introduced the topic to you depression versus contentment.
While the world continues to progress technologically, I swear by a lot faster than its growth in technology. It is the retrogression morally and spiritually
we find ourselves being exposed to a society that has become so immoral like say either Mojave or the Allahu said.
Morocco Zamani, La Mancha Rosa monin padmavat. Woman Kuru Morocco Zamani lamb Yachty. such deep words
food for thought Satan Amalia Londo said Morocco Zamani. Now, the good of our times were the sins of the previous times. What you and I consider as noble spires as righteous was considered a sin advice and transgression in the previous times. While Morocco Samana Mancha was a man and woman Kuru Morocco Zamani, lamb Yachty. And what we consider as vice and as evil and as the wrong today will be considered noble and pious in the time that is to come. There is why in Bukhari, there is one commentary we want Sahabi addressing his companion said, in Nicola Tama Luna Allah Allah.
Allah unique Amina Shari, qu Nana de rasulillah salam wa alayhi wa sallam Amina Moo because that all my companions I see you perpetrating many crimes which you trivialize I swear by allowing the time of Libya Li Salam these were considered as the most destructive crimes and as we draw closer to the Yama this continues, so while the world progresses definitely in technology like one scholar mentioned, while the world boasts that now we are traveling by a forgetting not that while we are now traveling by air we have also polluted the air of Allah with Guna. So in mud a wine is being consumed in mud escena is taking place indeed these growth and technology but coupled with that is
the retrogressive in in morals and values. Wildlife seems to become easier theoretically. In theory, when you analyze life today, we have such advanced modes of transport such easy ways of communication. In theory, life seems easier than previous time. But practically life has become more challenging than the previous status. Tension, depression and frustration has one law become the order of the day.
happiness, joy and prosperity is something of the past. may repeat what I said. Tension, depression and frustration has become the order of the day, happiness, joy and prosperity has become something of the past. Never mind becoming a victim to any tragedy, which perhaps might warrant depression. A person met in an accident lost a beloved, lost his well lost a job, some tragedy, some calamity, some catastrophe came in his way, which definitely warrants depression. Nevermind The tragedy is that you know, a person becomes a victim to any tragedy, the very fears, the very fears that are haunted the mind of an average man is sufficient depression, the very fears that haunts the mind of
every individual that are ever looking, I must never become poor I must ever be diagnosed of cancer. This must never happen to fears that I ever look in in the heart in the mind of every man is sufficient depression in the life of every person. You know, like the poet says, I wish you could understand Arabic you can appreciate this couplets if you understand Arabic. He says he presented in the surgery of a position so terminal at a Baha de Ronda Yamini merseybeat Eb Sol terminal Atiba de Ronda Yomi miss a V.
He says I went to the doctor and I asked him the doctor assess me I've gone white, what is the reason? my CV like it comes in authentic ha ha de la Sallam said when the Vla Salaam was told to ship at a auto suit alone to be overlay you are aging you are becoming white Navy Elisa Lam said she
is the frightening description of cuyama in Surah Hood which makes my hair whites
and we learn in the authentic hadith 20 strands of white hair on the blessed body of nebulae salatu salam and another poem comes to mind while I'm saying this year, the poet says Lana has a Yamaha to Lana horto a Yamaha to obey in Houma mahalo petal de de de facto solid MP by Avi what a
piece of body I wish you can understand Arabic really, you know it has to be understood in Arabic. The time says the poet says, I have a pen and the time has a pen the era in which we are living. It is a pen and as we are talking, our time is just moving away. That is my husband, Pastor he said regarding the Sahaba to Aquaman,
that I said in the company of Sahaba. And I found them more possessive over their time than they well. I found them they were more possessive they cling on to it. They were flexible with their money. They were not hard on the money, but they were very hard on the time. Nobody could take time from them.
me here. So the poet says, I have a pen and the time has been obeying the woman mohyla told me Daddy, the only difference is the ink for
my pen has black ink. I write with black ink on white paper, and the time writes with white ink on black hair.
piece of body that is the difference.
Nonetheless, he says I asked the doctor the doctor examined me Why am I going whites.
So he said you have a lot of phlegm in your body.
Instantly I said doctor I respect your expertise. You need to understand Arabic to appreciate what has been said. I appreciate your expertise. But definitely I think this got nothing to do with phlegm. Instead This is depression. This is the result of depression in my body. This is what has happened. Tip any person let him pour his heart out to you. Every man is in crisis.
In the air I took a Jelly Belly
my brother I seen you sitting before me the very gesture of your face indicated depression
in La kawakubo
take life easy calm down relax as in Australia. They say no worries. No worries. That's the term I remember when we were that I had to give a talk at a particular university I met a man he says asking where are you going? I said I've got to go to the to UT Queensland University of Technology. So no worries you go straight to come to runabout to take a ride to get in straight to come. I didn't know what the man was saying. Nobody is Relax, relax
and put your reliance on
For verily the one that relies on Allah takes life easy.
mono, the only way to avert financial depression. The only way to avert and divert financial depression is to convince yourself that Allah is the Sustainer when you've convinced yourself that allies is sustainable, now, the fluctuation in the currency, the fake predict predictions of the economists, the competitors in the market will not make a difference to you.
So, this is this is the modern day politics, if we can put it that way, that in the midst of effluence there is no joy in the midst of comfort in luxury, there is absolutely no joy. This is the modern day poverty, which stared at every person and perhaps the hadith of Nabi sallallahu wasallam whenever you
held the hand of a Buddha, and he said
how do you consider excess wealth, excess of provisions as well, and lack of provisions as poverty? I said only we have a law that is the apparent definition of wealth and poverty, that if you have a lot, you're successful, you are healthy, you are prosperous, and if you don't have then you have a depressed life, you have a sick life.
You have your mother, let me set the record correctly, as they say just to put the record correctly.
Then setting the white man in the Medina as in a local woman can elvina fickle behave. Guru Malati Amina dunya, Noah Bowser, wealth in essence is the contentment of wealth in essence is the contentment of the heart. And no, no Niagara Falls no Victoria Falls can give you that contentment that is divine from Allah. Woman Khalil will be the one who has contentment in his heart.
Amina dunya the no amount of calamities and tragedies will harm this man will depress this man. Nothing in this world will depress this man.
You see, today Every man has a different perception of content. Every person feels some feel that if I get married, and I have a beautiful wife I have that is the goal of my life. That is the ambition of my life. And I foresee my joy in that in that woman. Others fail if I pursue a degree I graduate I earn so much, then that is my particular accomplishment. And that is the pinnacle of my joy. Like they say for people with dribbling, or three people perhaps in a simple example. They were speaking different languages. One spoke English one spoke or the one spoke Arabic. Someone came in gave them $1 now they had to split the dollar. What are they gonna do with the dollar the one that speaks
Arabic? He said
I'm gonna buy it.
Okay, the other one that speaks English, he said no, no, I want to buy grapes. I want to buy grapes. I'm not buying. I'm buying grapes. The third one
enough. I want my grapes. So they came along one person who spoke all three languages like you know, they say Padre
Padre Lovato, Maria Maria Corona
Masada Pecola, sonnenfeld hottie in Santo. The more languages a person speaks, the better it is for him. So this person said, You know what, I will resolve your problems, you'll give me that $1. And I will get your own glory or individual grades for you. I'll do everything, even devote a bunch of grades. And he came and gave it he says this is your hunger. It is your gift and it is yours. So the expressions are different. But the common thing is peace. Every man is searching for happiness. Every person is searching for inner contentment. And voila, Allah has not get in the capacity of the things of this world. You take a child, you give him an item, he senses it for a period of time and
the next thing is tired. Allah isn't kept in the capacity of this world, anything in the capacity of this world to satisfy this restlessness of men in this cave of men, this ego of men, we continue to have economies and a lot a
woman Khalil sacrifical be the one who has great in his heart, the one who is contentment in his heart, nothing of this world nothing. It is the perception that if you are healthy, and you're wealthy, you're content. This is the deception and the delusion of the devil. Last year, I had the opportunity to go to Malawi, which is the neighboring country from South Africa. The Quranic claim was translated in the local vernacular language for the first time, and they had the launch of the Quran. And there was an opening of the masjid. So some scholars were invited from South Africa. I was also among those that were invited. We were there we went to a particular location. And this
particular scene, you know, really caught my eye and I thought I related to you. There was a small little hut which was the house of this man. safely. I can say your laundry room is bigger than
His entire house nearby there was a small Well, there was some goats and some children were playing. It was extremely hot. There was no food, nothing, no fan, no echo nothing. This elderly aged man was sitting outside his particular heart in the heart of Africa, living in abject poverty. But that particular man, it's such a broad smile. And he transmitted such warmth, that I swear by a lot. It left an indelible impression in my heart, in my mind, and it left me thinking that really what is wealth and what is poverty, who is wealthy and who is poor, who is content and who is depressed A few years ago, we were in Jordan, we were hosted by a very, very wealthy man. You know, Subhana
Allah, Allah has given him such wealth. He does his water 16 times before it comes out of the tap.
He had spent in excess of 2 million US dollars on his garden. He received us at the airport, a breathtaking view, very scenic, Mashallah. He owns more than 20 food outlets in the United States. And you know, he received us in what a beautiful atmosphere we performed Muslim namaz on his lawn. It's on one of the high mountains of Amman. It was really unimpressive scene. But then grosman and the engagement of that male was such I did not cherish or admire or envy that man's well for a split second, and I kept on admiring the smile of this man living in abject poverty.
What even as a woman can elvina physical be, he was contentment in his art follow your guru Maliki Amina dunya, no calamities of this world with depression.
You see depression.
Fear only sitting on his throne.
The vision was so on. The someone seeing the vision EULA, do moulden ever have blue collar Ed, that a child will be born and you will lose your kingdom at the hands of that child. The child is not yet born. Your own is still governing. But scholars right from that day onwards Waterloo.
Voila Shut up. That was the end of food brings happiness and joy. From that day onwards. Imagine the child is not yet born. They haven't yet made the diagnosis of cancer doctors suspect the skill set at the end of joining the life of that man. How many people aren't they who own more of wealth, but because of sicknesses. They have such restrictions that the dog in that house eats better food than
the men for breakfast has a very restricted diet. For lunch you cannot have this you cannot have that the dog in that house eats better foods. And this is what the world is chasing. This is what the world is advertising. This is what we have been brainwashed with and been exposed to
look at it very well. Hadith in Bukhari Sharif, when there is contentment in the hearts food for thought in particular for our sisters applied nabby robot says Abdullah
tells me Allah
should I not show you a woman of gender? I said please do tell me. He said how the human to soda. It nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you see this woman have ever seen in a region? Can I tell you a story about this woman. She one day came to LA Salaam to get the condition in her life. It does not mean when a man has contentment when Allah has given him the calamities will not come? No, no, Allah will give him the strength to react differently. You will not get emotion by set your emotional by situations divinely inspired him and I will elaborate on what I say.
money can buy you a house like this money can buy a house but not a home.
money can buy you a bed but not sleep. person can be sleeping, you know, whatever it is, they say insomnia is a medical condition that's only growing in the world, deprived of sleep. And on the other hand, he's a beggar a proper sleeping under the tree in traffic. The people are driving people are busy engaged, and he's enjoying the divine sleep of a lot in the shape that Allah has provided, while La la la la la casa de la la. He appreciates the shade that Allah has given an another man sitting in front of the ocean, having a beautiful view with his beloved wife on the third floor of that particular hotel. And he's tossing and turning and he cannot sleep. Waste and pleasure coming
from. Look at this particular woman. She comes to nabire Salam jasola in neostrata Casa Li suffer from epilepsy. Now what a fatal illness she's suffering what is sickness now as the world hops upon it. Did you know if you are there's so many anti aging products, you must have an age you wouldn't be sick. There are so many sisters that are destroying their health just to look thin. Just to look attractive, seductive dramas look cinemas look appealing
This particular woman on this magazine and that magazine, because I am made to believe that evil looks in sweet, attractive and seductive, then I am successful and I am content. Yet that particular person is destroying that woman. She is suffering. She's deprived of food. You know, like they say the typical American mentality of dropping the levels of obesity is going to a particular shot. Can I have a double cheeseburger and a diet coke?
Why the levels of obesity are too high, so I'll have a Diet Coke or a double cheeseburger.
So anyway, this woman comes to me via Karim Salatu, was Salam ala rasulillah, in Nusrah Subhana Allah look at contentment, I swear by a light comes divine from Allah.
Allah, I suffer from epilepsy.
And when I have these attacks, my center is exposed. Could you perhaps make dua to Allah, Allah kills me.
Now what a tragedy in life it was to tell depression
Subhan Allah the teachings of nivia Karim sallallahu wasallam
One was to lift his hands and instantly make dua and Allah will respond positively and cure the woman. But then Have you ever like gave her a choice in city law?
We're in cities subharti we're lucky Jana, you have one of two choices, if you so wish.
I will make dua to Allah now, he will kill you instantly, permanently, totally. On the other hand, if you endure, persevere, and exercise patience, I promise you, that is yours.
Now in today's terms, when a person understands that sickness means depression, it means medical expenses. It means burdening the family. It contains a host of other things. Naturally, a person is so desperate for to do anything and everything.
Another one while I'm speaking about this, another Hadith comes to my eye shadow Fatima. Ilana comes home she's hungry.
what the world has painted as depression.
And what Islam tells us with regards to contentment,
there is absolutely no food. Now person is living in difficulty is some financial problems. Again, this Warren's depression, you find today, most of the circular degrees that a person pursues is in relation to his monetary return. Most of the things a person is becoming a doctor, very few are those whose aim and whose ambition is to serve humanity. It might be a sideline, you know, option. But the primary reason the priority in pursuing that particularly is the monetary returns. What will I get back by giving so much how much do I get back? These are the reasons why because why the perception is the day I have wealth, I am successful, and I'm content. I am happy the day I have
well, they do they end of sadness, depression.
And that's apart from the depression which is as a result of Gura and I'm coming to that still. I swear by Allah the greatest contributing factor to depression is gonna as the young boy, who after he thinks, and he's on a bus and he's on cloud nine in his safe, you know, floating somewhere else. As soon as he becomes sober. He goes through such depression that he's left with one of two options. Either he commits suicide or takes a pill again, there is no other choice in the life of the young boy. I personally have dealt with many youth involved in drugs. My ex wife perpetrating the crime, he enjoys fake pleasure, but the sooner he becomes sober, he goes through such depression, my
intervene sallallahu wasallam said in the Hadith prophesizing, the things of the Ummah, a man will come to the grave, to the grave of his brother, not to respect the disease, not to come in conveyed to him yet tomorrow, he was interning the soil of the grave and he will say Layton economic and the Sahaba my brother, I envy you, you are gone. I promise you I cannot bear the calamities of this world any longer. I wish I was beneath the soil and you are above the soil.
In the midst of all the comforts that is Allah Moulton yoba a study for the life shamala Rafi, someone said Irish Can you tell me someone who's selling debt? I want to buy debt. I'm frustrated with life and you've come with all the comforts all the luxuries all the affluence. Like in order they say, Taka Baraka can a camera dying a maraca beach in Nevada Tokido Jaya.
Now in the foot of frustration, you say I wish I die. I wish I die. I wish I died.
And then they speak of euthanasia, mercy killings.
Alberto Guevara K. Kamara j&j, you take any youngster to a rehabilitation
When he's been admitted in that particular rehab, the first thing they ask him is the symptoms of drugs. The thoughts of suicide cross your mind. That's the first thing is,
this is nothing these antidepressant tablets, you know, they have antidepressant I give this example, perhaps I share it with you. It's nothing that is escapism. You hide in reality, you are disguising and camouflaging. You are not solving, you're not soothing, you're not unwinding, you are not relaxing, is like a person went to a particular motor mechanic had a problem in his car, says, You know what, as I'm driving, this is very strange and peculiar sound coming out. And I can't trace the problem. So the motor mechanic had a look at the car. But he couldn't trace the problem. He says, You know what, I can't really find anything. But I got a way out, I can solve the problem for
you. If it really bothers you, while driving, just put your radio bit louder.
If the noise bothers you just put your radio and I promise you your problem will be solved without any money. I won't take a cent from you. You just turn the volume a bit louder. And that's it. I swear by Allah daddy's antidepressant tablets, you have more problem, you have only camouflaged it, you've disguised it, the problem remains become sober and it's worse than what it was.
There is antidepressant tablets.
Around said La hawla wala quwata illa Billah is the cure of 99 ailments the least of which is depression, the least of which is depression
in the South Dakota seem to fail. Let me complete that Howdy, Fatima, the olana comes home.
There is no foods. What happens to a man today again, the perception is that when there isn't wealth, when these informed when the sickness these things weren't depression in western circles, what happened to people in this situation?
Alanna tells Fatima the olana that go to your father and ask him if there is some food for tomorrow the Alanna comes to the house of Nabi sallallahu sallam.
How did they react to situations? Sometimes it's just the change of attitude. It's not the change of condition. It's the change of attitude that brings pleasure to life. For tomorrow Ilana comes in knocks on the door.
From the very tone of the note nearly Salam said Allah taco Fatima This is my prathima knocking at the door.
Tina famously, and my prathima has come on a strange time. Normally my Fatima will not visit me on the stand. Definitely something that is bothering my daughter. She enters the house of Mario silom which father wants to see his daughter coming home with hunger. And Allah forbid that don't happen if it comes in happens to her how would we react to the situation? We will go through depression that I don't know what anyway, we will go look at our next
release. She sits down she then praises nebulous and I'm zeroed in on the noble personality. And then you know she very in a very subtle way she indicates in a very modest way. Yasuda Allah sallallahu wasallam harville melodica Dharma with the spirit with the need from Allah. Allah the angels glorify Allah perpetually satisfy the needs by worshiping Allah, myself, your son in law and your grandchildren have absolutely no food. Could you perhaps make some arrangements?
Do you know what a emotional meeting that is? Can any father contain himself Allah Don't let me let that happen to us. To find your daughter coming in this way to see your grandchildren hungry.
It's gonna be over last eyes become moist. He comes into emotions, but he calms himself down Subhana Allah divinely contentment. Allah inspires him, then to be of Allah says, Oh Fatima, Allah to that woman and I want to mention, woman Khalil will be the one who has contentment in his heart. No voli condition will depress him, conditions will come upon him. conditions will come upon him.
Like they say having a law on your side
does not mean sailing on the ocean with no waves.
It doesn't mean that but having a lot on your side means sailing in such a ship which no storm can see.
That is what it means. It doesn't mean you will not have stones. You will have stones you will have waves. But when you have a lot on your side, no storm will sink that ship. No star will sink that ship. That is divine contentment that Allah will give and nothing of the world can give you this.
They have tried anything and everything to get that happiness and you
Then there's nothing
when the wealth of pleasure came into Madina, munawwara Ilana started crying.
Man you've now said in Missouri amirul mumineen wealth effluence prosperity. This is a dark day of train. This is a day of victory. This is a day of joy, such wealth we anticipate Allah has given us. Why are you morning where the light is opening the days of victory. But look at the first sightedness of Omar. How deep is sight in our fire his vision was he said in his alma mater Hello Coleman Illa Allah Aveda Humala da, ba ba study the history of effluence what they say the nama say, study the history of affluence. Whenever it came to a nation it divided them. Whenever it came to a nation it snatched joy from them.
It took no happiness. There were times when one person will work in and 10 people will live in and everybody was happy. today. 10 people are working end of the day, not one is happy. end of the month, not one is happy.
This is the modern day poverty. In the midst of all comforts and luxuries there is no happiness there is no joy.
The object of Nika is that when you look at your wife, it must put an end to depression and not start depression.
The logic of Nika is that when you're looking at your wife, it must put an end to depression and not start depression.
jarle Allah the Quran says, Let the school know that when you come home and the spouses meet, that must be the end of depression, the fatigue the frustration that the husband experienced throughout the day, the tiredness the wife had an agenda, the children the house, the domestic work, so many duties board had a long, tiring day that exhausted the respective partners. The Quran says the fundamental object of your marriage is that when you meet it must put an end to depression. If you're meeting with your spouse, and it is starting depression, I swear by Allah even if you live in, in in a palace in in effluence. The very fundamental object of that marriage is for kids.
Who are lovey Jalla Lacombe in boo taken Sakina Allah says the object of your houses it must put an end to tiredness and fatigue. Today no man can sit at home this weekend run commodity go if your house if your house can give you comfort then better than that is the Quran says the object of your house. It was bring in a joy in a satisfaction that there is no bounds no restrictions, no pride No No formalities you can relax yourself. You can sit as you want to you're free and it Liberty if your house cannot contain you cannot attract you in English they say the one that doesn't find joy at home we'll find it nowhere.
The one that does not find joy at home will find it nowhere.
So then the viola Levin tells his daughter Oh Fatima
if you want I will give you five sheep which someone brought and gave to me. I give it to you.
You take it home slot eat and eat it
and if you want a lamb turkey ham salamati Nala mini Hindi gibreel
otherwise I teach you five words five, five why's which if you recite will soothe you satisfy your your hunger, your depression, your pain, you agony today tomorrow when your father is around and when he's gone.
We learned from these Ahadi that there is a price for this divine joy. There was nothing wrong for the Navy of a law to say you're my daughter take the sheep also and take the dogs also. But he didn't do that. He said take the sheep or as a draw one of the to bear in mind this is a Father who sees his own daughter hungry. There is no words of any language that can translate the emotions of such a father
and Fatima who might be loved the most men could have been a woman Agha Adani. Whoever loves my Fatima loves me. Whoever dislikes my Fatima dislikes me.
Hassanein Hossein, the coolness of my eyes.
She said only we have a lot I will prefer those five words. I will prefer it let me Elisa Lam says okay then say after me. Oh my daughter. Yeah.
Mateen yahama Rahimi, she takes this. She reads this she
goes home she returns to her husband met and your wife send you a shopping list and you come back with a
nevermind you know you just come back with a different item and you know what happens
you know like they say this particular woman she came home husband he brought tomatoes for his wife came and he left the data packet she says no I don't want this ones I want the one in the box when the one in the wooden box. He said Okay, no problem. He went outside he found a wooden box to get put the tomatoes inside the box on a budget officer. This is the one I wanted.
Anyway, she comes with no what I'm saying these are situations that bring depression to us. I don't know his the tragedies of our times become more obvious our forbearance levels drop more
petty, petty things today through your things a man goes through depression. And immediately you know he needs to do this he needs to go you know he's back onto his drugs he's doing this is the trivial trivial things and a person cannot contain himself petty issues that a man is divorcing his wife.
And so hello, look at this condition, husband, wife and children are hungry. She comes home. She read the husband, the husband is happy. The children they sued the children the children are too young to tender to fathom to appreciate how Allah gave contentment to Fatima through this
Fatima hunger was the price of this contentment. I said it on a full stomach my brother You heard it on a full stomach. Because I can appreciate what I can do and either you can appreciate I and you both will have to collectively knock the door Fatima to understand the hidden quality that Allah has skipped in this law.
Neither I nor you to take quality that Allah has kept and how soothing This door is that we live to ours Fatimah hunger and my husband and children collectively was the result of the Divine tranquility that Allah provided to us
like to say this person was sitting in relaxing so someone said get up and do something good in your life man would you rest in your life for is a one man is what must I do? It says go work and make some money man and then get married and then well you can perhaps go for a vacation and then what sit by the beach and relax. So what I'm doing that now
I'm doing that now as I go through all those procedures. As I go through five procedures and relaxing now
in an alarm.
mean has certain data turabi if I did not accomplish my material goal in life, what's the harm? You died as a doctor? I died as a grown man. But then we entered through one door.
What's the first we made it well and good. I didn't make it Well, what's the difference? End of the day who is happy in his life?
Who has divine happiness? Enjoy? Do some soul searching and ask yourself
that have you ever lost this woman?
If you want to make dua to Allah will kill you. And if you want you make supper internet, no, she's suffering epilepsy. So behind Allah contentment, he says all the way over life, you promise that I have patients dignities minds, then I will prefer living with this sickness, and I will prefer to die in with the sickness. As long as you can confirm, then that is nice. However, I'm very conscious of my modesty. And when I have my epilepsy attacks, my stutter is unveiled and it is exposed. I want you to make that amount of drama that in the future attacks that I have I mustn't be unveiled. There was a time when a woman was conscious of her morality in the midst of sickness, which perhaps anyone
can display this, you know, debate is she being excused in the sense of the sickness that she has that have you ever made, that in the future attacks that she has a set of mustn't be exposed, but Allah gave her contentment on her sickness. Allah gave her content well on her sickness. She lived with epilepsy. She died with epilepsy and on the tongue of the visa lottery wasallam her abode internet was confirmed. Hence it is a perception. It is a deception. It is a delusion that if I am healthy and I'm wealthy, I'm successful and I am contents. He cannot to fall somehow. Melaka Lola mia caminhar ihlara tell Bethany, it is contentment. grab on to it. I swear by your life you have
it. You're a king without your throne also.
Waldo Lima, Malika dunya, big Maliha and look at those who own the entire world. Those who own the entire world.
Those that when they all went in the same way, nothing more.
Like in Arabic, this a lotta photography, philosophy, I don't think about three things This will add to your depression.
This is the formula of depression. This is the formula of getting depressed. And today inevitably Every man has this in his mind.
Don't think about the day I won't have money. Today I lose my job. Today this happens to me don't don't play. Don't don't, you know, fear don't sit in. You know, think about the moments where I won't have wealth. Why is this will only increase your greed and it will add to your anxiety and it will multiply your depression.
Number Number Two
do not plan a long future in life. Allah Allah knows the destiny of every man. But if a person plans a long future then you will have to miss much more because you say at the age of 70 meters at an ATM meters at 90 I'll need to say because I'm around 100.

And they were talking about you know, having an affair with strange woman. And this particular I don't know if you can call him a human.

is like saying burn yourself. I've got an ointment for burn finger, so burn yourself. I bought this burn myself who's gonna use this? So let me bring myself let me bring my laptop, I brought it here in case something happens. So let me burn. There is not the time to reflect on the mercy of Allah.
Scholars explained if a person polders over the mercy and forgiveness, the kindness and the tolerance, the respect and the clemency of Allah prior to perpetrating a sin, his minor sin will become a major sin.

And amongst those that are guilty of sinning openly are people who sell by night secretly. They sell by nightwalker the birthday is through hora boo. And Allah conceals the Manson he does a sin commit Zina takes a pill does whatever wrong. And then in the morning, he gets up. And he doesn't do this until he doesn't unveil the veil of Allah. And he goes and says, I enjoyed this woman and I had this wine to bring this pleasure. Such a man has committed a crime which is unpardonable in the eyes of Allah.
So contentment comes from Allah, it comes on the obedience of Allah.
Let me explain to you the incident. I don't know what is my time allocation.
I think I just got to worry about my flight. And that's about it. But anyway,
let me explain to you an incident.
When a lot wants to give peace in the Battle of votes, this has got nothing to do with wealth. It's got nothing to do with health. In fact, I did I decided that I really want to explore we haven't started. And that is what Allah says, Whoever will obey Allah, Allah promises a good life. What is the definition of a good life?
It's the perception that it's a healthy and a wealthy life. Let's define let's have a common definition of a good life.
And on the other end, Allah says, Whoever disobeys Allah, Allah will give him a narrowed life. The apparent life that the kuffaar have is wealth affluence, comfort, fame, luxury.
In yet the Quran says every coffee has a narrow life. And the believers Allah say those who obey Allah, they will have a good life. The most deserving for this good life is the galaxy of the prophets and the noble companions of nearly salam, because the quality of the Salah was falling in them to the highest extent, nobody could have this more than them. And hence we do not find health and wealth common amongst all the prophets. At times, perhaps it could define a good life, but it doesn't necessarily entail the total definition of a good life. Perhaps gives it to someone like me to sue the Mona Lisa lamb. What a kingdom what a dominion. What advanced Empire law had given him.
Save your money salat wa salam. Scholars write two things define a good life and a content. This is the definition of a good life which Allah promises. The first thing is that whatever situation comes in your life, Allah gives you the ability to focus on the reward promise in that challenge in Africa. What does Allah give you? That this condition has come upon you like I spoke about Fatima, I spoke about that woman. A challenge comes when you're the definition of a good life is Allah enables you ally empowers you ally and reaches you. This is not something that I can say or you can purchase this is divinely inspired. Allah enables you
To focus that this is the challenge this is the calamity This is on me in my life. This is what my Allah has kept for me in Africa. And the second thing that defines a good life is that Allah gives you contentment. Now let's just briefly run through the life of a human is Salatu was Salam.
O Allah had given him health, wealth, comfort, luxury, affluence, you name it inherit 80 years of total prosperity. They have decided to test him. Allah tested him in such a way Allah took everything. Allah took all his farms, all his orchards, everything burnt away. The roof of his house and his authentic narrations, the roof of his house collapse, causing all the occupants of his house to his 14 children to die instantly.
A person loses one child and never recovers, the trauma never recovers. He or she is never the same human onwards, 14 children he loses at one instance, he loses all his farms and that's not all. He develops such a sickness that he has ulcers on his entire body.
The only pillar of support that he had was his wife. And as I mentioned, the fundamental objective of marriage is to put an end to depression and not to start depression. The Quran says Amina tea and Hakuna
Matata were the primary reason behind marriages that it puts it into depression. It puts happiness joy solace in place. And by by by virtue of the bond of marriage, Allah promises to love and mercy, love and mercy. They in the kumada scholars write generally love translates itself in the initial stages of the marriage marriage, Kayla Alma de Sha, Allah, Jews, and mercy for the respective partners often translates in the latter part of the marriage. in the initial stages, it's more motivated by love and lust.
So anyway, the pillar of support for him was his wife. His wife was the granddaughter of Yusuf Ali Salam.
He was a hottie he was a man.
He will Halima zolgensma shackelton sabella this woman seen the era of prosperity. When things are good, then the partners Oh, wonderful husband wonderful. What more to complain Why? Because life is prosperous, everything is going well. But when difficulties comes, when challenges sets in, now, this is the time to support your partner. More than often in western circles, these marriages dissolve. Why because there are challenges. But look through this bond, when Allah gives content when in the midst of difficulties What joy there is, like I'm a swan Allah, you know, they say in Arabic.

And it's midnight and everyone is sleeping, and Subhanallah you come to a conclusion and you deduce some point it is a pleasure which

So what happens to a human a salam, the pillar of support was his wife. And she stands by he said she stood in the days of prosperity as as well as the days of difficulty.
But his life continued seven years of difficulty, or you believe Salaam, the sickness took a toll on her. We often sympathize on a person that is sick, we forget to emphasize with those living with a sick person. At times they need more sympathy than the sick person. What about those that are living with a sick person? So he started taking a toll on her seven years lapse? She comes to her husband, she says, Don't you think it's high time you make drop to a lot that now he kills you and you know, once again restores your health, and we can see prosperity again. The tunnel is dark, it's raining, it's pouring. Life is narrowing upon us. Don't you think perhaps if we're lucky and open up things
in our life, and we have a more brighter future? But this is an Abbe of Allah. He asked his wife
or my wife, how long did we enjoy health and prosperity? So she said Samani eight years eight decades, cannabis to fill Bella, how long did we live in difficulty? And how long am I sick? And how long is it since we lost our children? So she said it's seven years if I recall, correct since this difficulties came in our life. So say, You've said Mr. stuffy. And Attila would mean Allahu Allah He.
He that I enjoyed prosperity for 80 years. And Allah is only tested me for seven years. I feel shy, I feel embarrassed to ask Allah to substitute this difficulty by prosperity when I enjoyed the divine privileges of my Lord for 80 years, and my allies only tested me for seven years.
