What's up LADY MICHELLE rajim Bismillah Al Rahman Al Rahim.

00:00:06 --> 00:00:09

Woman I'm in the button fill of the

00:00:10 --> 00:00:22

warmer and not mean dab, but in any creature fill out the in the earth meaning there is no creature in the earth. That is from dal Baba the bed is to move.

00:00:23 --> 00:00:29

You see living creatures, what are living creatures? What's the definition of living creatures?

00:00:30 --> 00:01:13

Okay, those that move, but aren't plants supposed to be living also. But do they move? Some do in the sense that they close in the hunt in the sense that if there is any creature, something, then they eat it. So they close it immediately. But there are very few species that are like that. Plants don't generally move. The buyer Dubois to move that by is also used for like a horse. Because it moves and runs. It's used for transportation. So living things are what we understand what living things is that they grow. They're not stagnant, they grow, they breathe, or something like that they have certain characteristics, but that is not every kind of living creature. That is the creature

00:01:13 --> 00:01:21

that moves with its own well, it moves with its own will, whether it is a caterpillar, or a sloth,

00:01:22 --> 00:01:38

or a bird that is flying in the sky, or a fish that is swimming in the sea. It could be very tiny, like bacteria. And it could also be huge, like a blue whale. Plants are not included in that.

00:01:40 --> 00:02:35

So Allah says over here, there is no moving creature fill early in the earth inlet except Allah Allah He en Allah, this Guha, its provision, meaning Allah is the One who provides for every creature provides what everything it needs, from its food, to its place of shelter, to the air that it needs to the water that it may need to survive. Allah provides it. And if this work was left to us, there would be nothing that would be alive on this earth today. Allah is a provider. This is amazing. There are creatures that migrate every season, why? To get their risk from a particular place. Allah is the one who put their this over there and taught them that you have to migrate from

00:02:35 --> 00:03:11

this place to the other every now and then to get your risk in there, Allah Allah He is still here. We do not even know the different types of creatures that exist on the earth, let alone their numbers. How many species are there whenever we talk about the number of species, it's what the known those that are known to us? And every now and then there's a new discovery. We don't even know how many creatures there are. And imagine how many meals they consume. How many other creatures they eat. Allah is the provider of every creature.

00:03:12 --> 00:03:44

You know, a blue whale. How big is it? It's one of the biggest creatures right? Biggest alive creature is one of the biggest, you know what it eats its main diet. What is it? Krill and krill is a small creature that lives in the sea that resembles tiny shrimp. Have you ever had shrimp? Now think about that shrimp. And now imagine it tiny shrimp. That's what that giant blue whale eats. And you know how many per day

00:03:45 --> 00:04:11

it can eat up to 40 million krill per day 40 million krill per day. Now imagine Allah subhanaw taala is providing that blue whale every day. It's eating 14 million crale Every day, not once a week, every single day of the year for its life.

00:04:12 --> 00:04:21

If it lives up to three years, it's life is more than that. But if it lives up to three, can you imagine the number of krill that it has consumed?

00:04:23 --> 00:04:26

And those krill they eat something also.

00:04:27 --> 00:04:44

What do they eat something? Now imagine this entire food chain, just a matter of this entire food chain. The krill is feeding off of something and these millions of millions of krill who's eating them whales and dolphins and sharks and so many other creatures even birds.

00:04:45 --> 00:04:50

Were ma'am in the button fill ugly Illa Allah Allah.

00:04:53 --> 00:04:59

Allah Allah is still her Allah provides for it. And most of the sea creatures like krill

00:05:00 --> 00:05:34

and other types of fish, you know when they're moving from one place from cooler waters to warmer waters for the purpose of reproduction or something like that they're attacked on a regular basis. Recently, I watched this short video clip from this documentary and by BBC, it was amazing how this one type of creature is moving from one part of the ocean to the other, how many times it has attacked one type of fish, how many times their attack, and then what happens they reach a particular place near the Arctic, and they lay their eggs over there.

00:05:35 --> 00:06:23

And the whole ocean, but everything is covered in their eggs, everything and who's eating those eggs, fish, crabs, even bears, even bears that come to the shore and they eat those eggs, migratory birds that stop in the way they eat those eggs, many of them and then they fly away. It's amazing, you would think that perhaps none of them will hatch. But yet there are millions of those fish. I love Lajitas. Turtles, they go to particular beaches, at particular times of the month when the Moon is at a particular stage, then they go lay their eggs, because by the time the babies will hatch, it will be easier for them to come to the shore, there will be less predators. But yet, there are birds

00:06:23 --> 00:06:41

that know that at this part of the month when the moon is like this, that's when the babies will come out. So they go attack for eggs. And then they also go attack for the babies that are hatching baby turtles. But yeah, there's no shortage of turtles. And if they do go extinct, I mean, there's so many that that we cannot even count.

00:06:42 --> 00:07:21

So I was watching a video where there was a river and there was a forest beside the river and there was Barris there, and the baby bears like the smaller bears, they would always take their fish and they wouldn't go into the forest because of the fact that they didn't want to compete with the older bears. So as soon as they would go into the forest, they couldn't eat all of the fish. So what would happen is the like fish would decompose into the forest. And most of the like, the nutrients the forest would get is because of the fact that the bears did end up eating all of their, like, all of the fish and then in the spring, all of the nutrients that all the birds and animals would get was

00:07:21 --> 00:07:23

because of that fact that the bears couldn't eat

00:07:25 --> 00:07:35

any em everything becomes the risk of some other creature. Some other creature on Allah He does, because Allah is feeding his creation, the food that they need.

00:07:37 --> 00:07:38

In this video, there was also

00:07:39 --> 00:07:59

I think it was blue whale or one type of whale that was migrating with its baby. And a whole pack of killer whales spotted the baby. And they wanted the baby, they wanted to eat it up. Now, they use a technique in which they chase the mother and the baby continuously so that the baby would get tired.

00:08:01 --> 00:08:39

Now for about three hours that chased eventually, the baby's getting tired. Now what they did, they tried to separate the baby from the mother coming in between coming in between took another couple of hours. Now the baby is getting really tired, it needs to stay up on the surface in order to breathe. So what they did, they started attacking the baby from above so that the baby would drown. It took another like three, four hours to do that. And finally the baby just gave up and when they attacked it to eat it. You know what they ate? Just the lower jaw hollows, just the lower jaw and the tongue or something and the rest of the carcass uneaten.

00:08:40 --> 00:08:59

They didn't touch it, they just ate the lower jaw after Chase about eight nine hours that's all they consumed. Now you might say oh what a waste. That entire carcass is useless no it sinks to the bottom where there are numerous creatures that will consume it numerous creatures

00:09:00 --> 00:09:28

while mum and dad but then Phil oddly Illa Allah Allah He school her way Yara Lambo and he knows most acaba Musa car from car Ferrara Corolla Corolla has to remain in one place, so he knows it's most the car meaning its place of stay. Meaning where it will live on the Earth. Its nest or its den or its you know waters where its home is Allah subhanaw taala knows

00:09:29 --> 00:09:59

when was still Dharohar Musto dar from well dal are in EDA is to deposit and Amana so most of Eldar its place of deposit, meaning where the carcass will lie. After that creature dies. Allah knows where its home is and where its resting place in the earth is when it dies. While you're alone, when was the camera when was still dark? Coulomb Vicki Tabby mobian Everything is mentioned in a clear record.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:22

Now it's amazing where certain creatures live, how they get their food, how they survive how Allah guides them to go from one place to another in order to get there risk in times of drought and famine, shortage of food, how they survive, who was taught them. This perfect design who has given that Allah subhanaw taala. Watch this video clip, you'll be amazed.

00:10:24 --> 00:10:29

Water can provide a refuge from temperature extremes while it's there.

00:10:34 --> 00:10:37

Southern Africa is frequently ravaged by severe drops.

00:10:41 --> 00:10:44

For a fish out of water, death is usually inevitable.

00:10:49 --> 00:10:58

But these fish are not gulping air in vain. Their swim bladder forms a crude lung, allowing them to take in oxygen directly from the air.

00:11:02 --> 00:11:06

The lung fish escapes the desiccated meat by borrowing.

00:11:09 --> 00:11:14

It swallows the mud to excavate a chamber, passing it out again through the gills.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:22

Then it coats itself in mucus.

00:11:26 --> 00:11:32

As the mucus dries, it forms an impervious body bag that seals off the fish from the drought.

00:11:35 --> 00:11:41

River mud makes a secure chamber for the lungfish but it's equally suitable for making bricks.

00:11:51 --> 00:11:56

As things go from bad to worse, the lungfish shuts down and waits for conditions to improve.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:06

Central Australia also suffers prolonged droughts.

00:12:09 --> 00:12:13

Beneath the dried lake bed, other animals are buried alive

00:12:19 --> 00:12:29

the desert frog can survive and tuned for seven years. It sheds layers of skin that form a waterproof barrier, which prevents the frog drying out.

00:12:33 --> 00:12:35

Above the search for water continues.

00:12:38 --> 00:12:46

The thorny devil can survive for years without drinking. black ants provide all the moisture it needs and it eats nothing else.

00:13:08 --> 00:13:10

There are other ways of quenching thirst in the desert.

00:13:40 --> 00:13:47

The frog's bladder holds a reservoir of drinking water providing a good emergency supply for aborigines.

00:14:09 --> 00:14:11

In the desert, little is wasted.

00:14:13 --> 00:14:17

The thorny devil has a unique way of collecting water.

00:14:18 --> 00:14:19

Capillary action.

00:14:22 --> 00:14:25

It skins sucks up the liquid like blotting paper.

00:14:28 --> 00:14:33

A darkening BAM traces the waters progress across the skin until it reaches the eyes and mouth.

00:14:37 --> 00:14:40

A network of channels directs the water to the mouth

00:14:44 --> 00:14:48

and this way the lizards drink the morning dew that forms on the desert sand

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

even in Africa dry

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

Have some rust in

00:15:05 --> 00:15:11

the lungfish may wait four years before the rain water arrives to release it from suspended animation

00:15:26 --> 00:15:32

by the end of the doorman period, the lungfish has started to process its muscles as food

00:15:35 --> 00:15:38

but enough power remains in them to drag the fish back to water.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:05

How Allah subhanaw taala provides for his creation

00:16:07 --> 00:16:17

for seven years for three years suspended animation is just frozen in time waiting for more water but he had he doesn't die.

00:16:18 --> 00:16:25

Allah has started ways to preserve its body have a reservoir of water within the body

00:16:26 --> 00:16:36

amazing why ma'am in that but in Phil oddly Illa Allah Allah He does go her way our alarm almost akubra almost

00:16:37 --> 00:16:44

nothing goes to waste. Just imagine how much can a frog contained within itself how much less than a cup

00:16:45 --> 00:17:03

on 100 Allah Hilah, the Hara phirni, Metallica, behavour frontlit and Jada cathedra and mudman, Halaqaat of Leela. I was watching the reaction of many people, when they saw them and drinking from that frog was of disgust. This is the time when we show gratitude to Allah for water that is endless.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:46

And lessly available to us. And people have to go search for other creatures that have water stored inside to drink from them. But nothing goes to waste, even the dew and the drops that fall to the earth. I mean, look at how that lizard just went and sucked it up like tissue, like a sponge. Slowly, I was just thinking Subhanallah how the animals you know, they have patience to wait for Allah's risk. But as human beings, you don't have that patient. We go beyond the boundaries, we start lying and have her own risks. You see, we are part of that, but we also move right. We're also Allah's creation, Allah subhanaw taala is our provider also just as He provides for that lungfish

00:17:46 --> 00:17:54

and as he provides for that frog, but that lungfish will wait patiently for three years. That frog will wait, did you see how it was a sitting?

00:17:56 --> 00:18:40

Just sitting and waiting for Allah's decree? But we become impatient. We think we are our providers. People are concerned about how they're going to feed the overgrowing population. Allah is the provider I just say the water I think no water year in our country like if you take it back from ours, like we know summer, but it's raining every day right Alhamdulillah but if you're there to tutor most of us what why it's raining again, why it's raining here. If you if you compare this video to now our life there's a lot of country places they looking for one bottle of water. And we are last one Allah blesses with so much water with a bottle of water with the running water. But we

00:18:40 --> 00:18:45

instead of showing gratitude, we are complaining Why we complain about the overflow of blessings.

00:18:47 --> 00:19:31

We're talking about how the Lord taught the animals what to do when they don't have enough water. But when you think about it, also who taught that man how to find that water as well because he's in the middle of sub Saharan Australia, like how much can you really know if he's just, you know, an Aboriginal stuck in the desert. But he somehow knew that the bladder of the certain type of frog has drinking water from me and how he was striking the earth to see where that hollow sound will come. He didn't have any fancy tools, no fancy tools, nothing. But Allah subhanaw taala he created every creation and he also guided it guided it as to where it should go, how it should seek its risk. And

00:19:31 --> 00:19:59

Allah subhanaw taala has provided risk for every one of his creation. Well who are Lavie and he is the one who Holika summer wet you will all know who created the heavens and the earth. He said that he am in in six days. Well, those days were long or short. How much ever longer short there were Allah subhanaw taala knows but in six distinct periods of time, Allah subhanaw taala created this entire creation, the heavens and the earth will Cana and it was meaning it used to be

00:20:00 --> 00:20:05

I'll show who his throne his throne used to be where Island

00:20:06 --> 00:20:58

above the water, a last throne would be above the water and which water is this? Where was this water? Why was his arch on the water? He alone knows we don't know the details. So why is Allah subhanaw taala telling us about something that we cannot fully comprehend fully grasp, to let us know that he was the possessor of OSH even before he created the heavens and the earth. He was the King, the sovereign, even before he made us, even before the sky and earth and everything within it came into existence, he was still king, meaning he was worthy of praise. He was the owner, he was the ruler he was the master, before anything existed. He is a world the first before him nothing,

00:20:58 --> 00:21:53

then why did He create the creation? If the creation of the heavens and the earth did not increase in his kingship in His sovereignty, and his deserving praise? Why did he bring this into existence? Lee Lea beluga calm. So then he may try you he may test you, EO comm which of you is anomala is best indeed, to test the creation to test the people. What do we do? Who does good deeds with the choice and ability and the resources that Allah subhanaw taala has provided man? What decisions does he make? What actions does he perform? What does he produce in his life? Who does good actions and who does otherwise? The blue Acoma ucommerce, Anwar Mala, and this is something that we really need to

00:21:53 --> 00:22:17

understand. Because if we don't understand that we are being tested in this life with what we have been given, life can become very difficult, it can become very difficult to understand basic things, anything that's imperfect, whether it's a wrong kind of desire that a person may have, or it is anything that's not as you want it to be in your life, whatever it may be. Remember, it's a test.

00:22:19 --> 00:23:04

If there is a person who's having homosexual feelings, desires, if a person who's having desires of Zina, whatever it may be, what is that of Allah a test? If Allah subhanaw taala has created someone, as a man created someone as a woman, and created someone who's neither fully a man nor fully a woman, why Allah subhanaw taala created that person like that. A Bella for him, it just for him. This is just like Allah subhanaw taala gave one woman really beautiful hair, and another woman less beautiful hair, why a test for each person. So whether it is our gender, whether it is our wishes, whether it's the money that we have the people who are in our lives, the things that we have to see

00:23:04 --> 00:23:19

the difficulties we have to experience in our lives, whatever it may be, what is it a test, Allah created us to test us to see what do we do in the situation that we're in? And those who pass this test?

00:23:20 --> 00:23:35

who fulfill the purpose of their life who worship Allah, who respect the limits that God has set for them? Allah subhanaw taala will admit them were into Jana, his masterpiece, Leah beluga. com. Au commerce and or am Allah.

00:23:36 --> 00:24:10

Allah says whether in Kolkata, but if you are Mohamed salatu salam, if you say to the people, if you tell them that in Nakum indeed you mother Ruth, whom wants to be resurrected, mimbar did Modi after death? If you tell them just as you sleep at night and you wake up in the morning, you're going to die in one day and you're going to get up you're going to be resurrected if you tell them about afterlife, Leia Kowloon and Medina Cafaro surely the disbelievers are going to say in her illness you have been they will say this is nothing except clear magic, meaning this person is affected by magic.

00:24:11 --> 00:24:12

Meaning He's crazy.

00:24:13 --> 00:24:32

There's gotta be something wrong with his head that he's saying something like that. It doesn't make sense. It's illogical. They say it's so difficult for them to comprehend that there's an afterlife. You know why it's so difficult for them to comprehend there's an afterlife, because believing an afterlife means you have to face the consequences of what you've done.

00:24:33 --> 00:24:49

And it's very, very difficult to face the consequences of your actions to see the result of what you've done. Tell me how easy it is to view your test paper when you receive it.

00:24:50 --> 00:24:51

How easy is it?

00:24:53 --> 00:25:00

Do you go like, Okay, let me see your like, Gulp and then another goal and another deep breath and then we'll

00:25:00 --> 00:25:14

One look, and then you look, you know, back and forth. And then again, you look really, this is the mark that I got. And then you calculate again. And then you just reread what you wrote. Why? Because it's so difficult to face your results.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:57

It's so difficult. If somebody starts reminding you about your past, you know, sometimes parents remind their children about what they used to say and how they used to dress up and the kind of things they used to do. Tell me, do you enjoy it? Or do you tell your mom, Mom, come on, be quiet? Don't tell me or your baby pictures. You're like, why did you put those chords on me? How can I clean my face? How can you put me up over here? It's so embarrassing to look at your past, isn't it? It's so embarrassing to read what you wrote. If there's ever a video that your parents made of you when you were a little kid, you don't want to see it. It's embarrassing. Maybe as a baby, that was

00:25:57 --> 00:26:34

cute. But after that, when you were kind of wild, it's difficult to see it. So imagine on the Day of Judgment, we're going to be told about what we've done in our lives. It's very difficult, it's painful. Majority of the people don't want to live like that, that they have to see the consequences of their deeds. So they say in her illustration will mean you've got to be affected by magic to believe in something like that. Allah says well in and surely if a homeowner and human either we differ from them the punishment meaning because of their Cofer these Mushrikeen what do they deserve punishment, but if we defer it from them, meaning we don't punish them immediately, we let them live

00:26:34 --> 00:26:40

for some time to give them more chances. Isla until all my team Mr. Duda,

00:26:41 --> 00:27:15

Alma over here gives the meaning of a term a time. Mark Duda. Meaning numbered, fixed, limited modular is basically from other others what a number and when something is numbered, it is counted. It's limited. Because if let's say there's 100 items, now it's limited to 100. It's limited, no matter how much it is. It's limited. If you have two boxes of yogurt, I mean, it's limited. You go to the grocery store, you're like you know what, let me buy as much as possible. No matter how much you get. It's going to be limited because you're eventually going to run out of it right?

00:27:17 --> 00:27:30

Over here means term. Why? Why does it mean nation because the word OMA is like that it has four meanings in the Quran. It's used in four ways. What's the meaning that you are familiar with? Nation, a group of people

00:27:31 --> 00:28:07

but the word Allah is also used for leader. Remember Ibrahim already sent me he was told that Ibrahim right Islam was Allah's parents are describes him that in the Ibrahima, Kana Alma, he was an Obama, a leader. So a nation a leader, over here, we see that it gives the meaning of a term, a time period. And the fourth meaning is religion. And all that also we will learn. So Allah says if we were to defer them meaning their punishment until a fixed time lay Hakuna? Surely they would definitely say may be so what is holding it back?

00:28:08 --> 00:28:48

Meaning it's been so long we've been hearing from Muhammad salallahu Salam, if you don't believe there's going to be consequences. Well, what's holding it back? What's holding it back? How come it's not here yet? Allah says Allah unquestionably yo maya T him the day it will come to them. The day the punishment arrives, lay some US roof and our own home. It is not going to be averted from the muscle from sort of what the sort of mean to turn away must remove one that is turned away. It is not going to be turned away from them. Well, how probably him and it will encircle them. McCann will be here yesterday as he owned that which they used to mark. Because when they said Mayor this,

00:28:48 --> 00:29:03

what's holding it back? How come? It's not here? What were they doing? Basically, mocking. They were making fun. They were ridiculing the messenger. So Allah says that same ridicule, that same mockery is going to come in and circle them, meaning that they will not be able to escape.

00:29:04 --> 00:29:17

Now Allah subhanaw taala mentions the typical psychology of people, their typical habits. And what is that? That in good times in hard times people change.

00:29:18 --> 00:29:26

When people experience something good in their life a blessing, they don't remain the same. They don't keep their feet on the ground.

00:29:27 --> 00:29:59

And when they are suffering from some problem, they don't remain on the earth. They go deep in depression. They give up hope. They go to extremes. they fluctuate, they have really bad mood swings, literally mood swings. At times. They're super happy and then they're super down and then they're very happy and then it's like as if they're the most miserable human being walking on the earth. They don't remain calm. They don't remain composed in good times and bad times. They change

00:30:00 --> 00:30:04

Why, because of the weakness that they have inside of them.

00:30:05 --> 00:30:43

Weakness of one, weakness of trust in Allah, weakness of faith. So, whether it is some happiness or some sadness, they get affected in every respect mentally, physically, emotionally they instantly change and this is man's weakness. Allah says over here, what are in and surely if other canal insan we make the human beings taste or the corner from the taste. We make a person taste Mina from us. Meaning Allah makes that person taste experience a little bit of what Ramadan a mercy,

00:30:44 --> 00:31:35

mercy, meaning any mercy, any kind of blessing of this life whether it's a money health, beautiful body, youth, energy, friends, family, beauty, nice hair, nice job nice degree. If we make an insert Allinson means any human being regardless whether believing non-believing man, woman, child adult, this is the typical way in which people react as soon as they get a blessing. Summer then, Nizar Nair, we pull it away. We take it away. Nizar is to build something where the person doesn't want to give it up. It's like snatched away from him. Allah subhanaw taala takes it back from him. He takes that mercy back from him. What happens to the person? He stays the same. He stays calm and composed.

00:31:35 --> 00:32:26

No in who indeed he layer Olson surely very despairing, colorful, very ungrateful. Yeah, oozes from yeah Hamza seen yes to despair guffawed from cover and cover also means ingratitude. So he becomes very, very despairing, and he becomes extremely ungrateful. This is a reaction of many people, I'll insert, there are exceptions. But this is generally the reaction of people. Despair, extreme and gratitude, depression, they get very upset. They think there's no reason to live. Some people go to the expense of hurting themselves, cutting themselves beating themselves up, banging their head on the wall, trying to kill themselves, they show anger, they show rage, they become very, very

00:32:26 --> 00:33:04

furious, such severe reaction, whereas Allah subhanaw taala is the one who gave a llama, and he took that Rama away, not that Allah subhanaw taala stripped that person off of every blessing that they were given, is that so? Is the person deprived of every blessing. No. Remember that? If Allah subhanaw taala take something away. There's always still many, many blessings in your life, many blessings. The other day somebody was telling me about this lady who, when her husband passed away, she wanted to make sure that the inheritance was distributed according to the Sharia. So she did that. And because she didn't have any children from her husband, and he had a lot of family,

00:33:04 --> 00:33:30

basically, the share that she got was very, very limited. And she got extremely sick. So whatever money she got, you know, went in her treatment. And basically, she was left homeless and no family member who was willing to take care of her. So people were wondering, I mean, she decided to distribute the inheritance of Sharia away and look at how she's suffering. You see, Allah gave that husband Allah took him away. Allah gave that money, he took it away. But did he take away everything? No.

00:33:31 --> 00:33:54

This woman they were saying is so nice. She saw kind she saw happy and content and peaceful and there are family members who don't care for her. But yet there are some other distant family members who have welcomed her in their own house and she lives with them the kind of love and treatment that she's receiving from them. You couldn't get it from your own children.

00:33:55 --> 00:34:30

Remember, if Allah takes a Rama away, first of all, he gave it to you in the first place. Anyway, he has all the right to take it back, because it belongs to him. And secondly, if he has taken one thing away, he hasn't taken everything away. But what's the reaction of most people here owes? I've got nothing left in life. I've got nothing left. Go for ungrateful. Why did God do this to me? What benefit did I get? Your all's? And Kofoed. Extremely despairing. Very very ungrateful.

00:34:31 --> 00:34:32

As salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:34:33 --> 00:35:00

We all know the story, or most of us knows the story of the wise man in Musa al Islam, right. Where he was told to go learn from him and how he would Yes. And he went through so much things and he told them he can't ask any questions throughout and then towards the end, he told him the wisdom behind everything. Yeah, the reason behind everything he did. And then when he got to the part where he killed the young boy, and he said, Why did you kill that young

00:35:00 --> 00:35:39

boy who was just sleeping there. And he said, Because he later in life will bring problems his parents and his parents are very pious people. We look at it from that point of view, but we look at it from the point of view of his parents, they've now lost a son, and they're going through the loss of that child, but they most likely will have patience, because they are pious people. And if you look at it, the wisdom behind it allows them to give them another child through the loss of that one. Yes. Because when Allah subhanaw taala takes a blessing away from a servant. Remember, that in itself is a blessing. That in itself is a blessing, you know, like we say, a blessing in disguise.

00:35:40 --> 00:36:06

You know, like I mentioned to you earlier that life only makes sense in hindsight. Right now, whatever is happening, you lose something, you get something. It doesn't make sense to you like why? But two years from now, maybe 24 hours from now you will get it you're like, oh, make sense. It happened for the better. I don't have any regrets. It'll make sense to you, but later, but many people what's the reaction? Anger

00:36:07 --> 00:36:10

in gratitude, frustration, despair?

00:36:11 --> 00:36:50

Salam aleikum. My mom was sharing a story with me once how she read online that there was a couple and they lost their son when he was about 17 or 18. And another family member asked him but the mom was pretty normal. She wasn't that upset. And then the mom was telling the husband that you know, our son, he was a toy that Allah gave us to play with for all these years. And it was for him to take away this toy from us. Like it was a toy only and it was Allah's property. Remember the story of home Selene for the law, her and her husband was traveling, and our son baby fell ill. And while he was still away, the baby passed away. She bathed the baby got him ready for the funeral.

00:36:51 --> 00:37:06

Everything my husband came back, and she didn't tell him that her son has died. And this happened nothing came, gave him dinner, fulfill his wishes everything. And then afterwards asked him that

00:37:07 --> 00:37:20

if somebody were to give you an Amana to keep, and then they come to take it, would you give it like yes, of course I would give it because it belongs to them. They just gave it to me temporarily to keep Of course I would return it happily.

00:37:21 --> 00:37:43

So she said well our son was given to us by Allah and he has taken him away. He said okay, in that Allah he were in Nyla heal on your own. We belong to Allah and to Him we will return we are his anyway he gave this to us, and He will take it back. But unfortunately, majority of people what is their reaction? Your all's guff Oh,

00:37:44 --> 00:37:50

angry, frustrated, despair, unhappy as if everything has been taken away from them?

00:37:51 --> 00:37:56

Well, or in other corner who and if we were to make him taste, Norma,

00:37:57 --> 00:38:49

what is Nirma fever, blessing, such blessing that is visible, visible on the person. You like, for example, if a person is making money, it can't just sit in his bank account. It becomes very obvious that okay, this person is making money. He's got some money. How is it obvious? His clothes, his watch his glasses, his shoes, his car, his house, the way he spends on food, the way he gives charity? It's obvious. Allah says if we make him taste a favor by the love raw, after some hardship, he was suffering a lot. And Allah subhanaw taala gave him a taste of some blessings. Masato that had touched him meaning them difficulty that had previously touched him. What's the reaction? Does he

00:38:49 --> 00:39:30

still remain calm and composed and grateful and still obedient? Know what majority of people lay a colon? No, surely they will definitely say they have a say to me all the say other gone from me. All my problems are gone. And I'm so happy everything's fine. Everything's good. In Nola fairy home for who? Indeed he becomes surely further and for who further from federal how far to be happy isn't a nice to be happy. It's nice. But funny is someone who's so happy that he's almost proud which is why the next word is for hold for holders from foster and for her. You may have heard of the word for Hall.

00:39:31 --> 00:39:46

That human being has been made from the clay that is like for her CalHFA Hall for her is basically potter's clay you know clay with which pottery is made. So, imagine a cup or you know a bowl or something that is made from clay.

00:39:48 --> 00:39:59

Have you ever seen anything like that? Okay. What happens if you strike it what happens? You hear a sound, just a small touch and you will hear some noise

00:40:01 --> 00:40:06

for who it is to be boastful to be a show off, show off.

00:40:07 --> 00:40:31

He gets blessings, after some difficulty and you become so boastful. He goes on showing off like he's something like he never suffered anything in the past. He says, There was a year to Ernie Inola failure whom for whom he thinks himself is very great instead of being grateful. He thinks I'm the best.

00:40:33 --> 00:40:34

What do we learn in these two verses?

00:40:35 --> 00:41:23

If he loses something, he said, he gets very sad. And if he gets something, he's happy, he gets very happy. He's either down in the dumps, he cannot keep his feet on the ground. extremes, extremes in his life, there is no moderation. Somebody in psychology have covered a similar topic, that if someone is going to difficulty, they tend to blame the things around them. They blame other people, they blame circumstances. If you did bad on a test, oh, you know, I was distracted, something bad happened. And then when something good happens, when they're successful, they tend to boast internal, you know, properties and counsel smart. Exactly. So whenever something good happens for

00:41:23 --> 00:42:03

themselves, they say, oh, it's, you know, because I did well, I studied hard, it was my own good. They give credit to themselves. And if they suffer, they blame others. All right. And over here, what has been mentioned the reaction, but there are some exceptions. There are some people who remain calm and composed, who can keep themselves together, who don't change with what's happening in their life. Who ill Alladhina Suburu except for those people who are patient why middle solid has and who do righteous deeds. Hola. Hola. Hola. Mafia Ratan. What are you doing? Kabir For them is forgiveness, and a great reward. Who those who do sub and those who are mozzarella. They remain as

00:42:03 --> 00:42:25

they were, whether they get money, they get really rich, or they become really poor. They get very healthy or they got very sick, regardless of their circumstances. How do they remain patient composed and consistent in their worship? They don't become angry with Allah, they remain humble, they're able to contain their feelings are able to control them.

00:42:26 --> 00:42:51

But typically what happens, a person is sad. And they're snapping and they're yelling, and they're venting, and they're angry. They're breaking things. And they justify it. How that this is how I feel inside. I can't keep everything inside. I'm not a hypocrite, that I'm feeling something else inside. And I'm showing that I'm very happy. This is how they're justified.

00:42:52 --> 00:43:05

That I have to express myself. And because of that they have the license to yell they have the license to hurt others feelings have the license to do whatever they want. Is that something that befits a believer? No.

00:43:06 --> 00:43:49

The Prophet saw a lot of seven he suffered from extreme pain. He suffered from many difficulties in his life, but you don't see him yelling at people right, left and center. You don't see him hurting his family members. No, he didn't do that. Typically what happens if someone has a very stressful job? What happens immediately they go through divorce, or their children. They're abused in their house, or they are very short tempered. It affects their personality, they're not able to control themselves. They become overly sensitive. And sometimes they develop psychological issues also because they don't have anyone to turn to. You see II man it gives you hope. It gives you the

00:43:49 --> 00:44:07

ability to be patient. It gives you the ability to remain humble. Because it always reminds you Allah is watching I'm answerable to him in the medina Sabado when I'm in a Solly hat, Hola, Akena. Houma Farah to digital COVID.

00:44:08 --> 00:44:50

Like or model DE LA or New he said that Bolina bit the RA E for Savarna. We were tested with difficulties and we were patient because we saw the difficulty we realize it was a test so we tried our best to be patient but bilena Bisola. If alumnus, well, we were tested with good times, but we weren't patient. This is the typical reaction of people. When they're going through good times they forgot to be patient. And it had these we learn by He in Whose Hand is my soul, no worry, calamity, distress, illness or grief strikes a believer, even the prick of a thorn except that ALLAH will expect his sins for him because of it. But what happens break of a thorn and a big ouch as if your

00:44:50 --> 00:44:54

limb just got amputated. This is how we react.

00:44:55 --> 00:44:59

We've become so overly sensitive so overly

00:45:00 --> 00:45:11

reactive, that we don't have any tolerance, our pain tolerance is so low. Somebody gives us a look. And we think as if award has been called. Come on, man.

00:45:12 --> 00:45:24

Come on. I mean, you have some courage for every little thing. You heard me use had this to me. Ouch. And I got hurt and you didn't apologize. We behaved like children.

00:45:26 --> 00:46:00

I'm sorry. And I was thinking that when we keep these bad feelings inside ourselves, we forget them very soon. For example, I noticed recently that when I'm mad at my brother, sister, and I don't say anything to them, and I just decided in myself that I'm not going to talk to them. After 510 minutes, I start talking to them. I never forget if I was ever mad at them. Yeah. But then once I say it out loud, then it just gets worse and worse. Yeah. All right. Now again, when you're keeping it inside, meaning you're controlling yourself during subhub, some knifes, that doesn't mean that you don't say anything, but inside, you're angry, you know what it means you have to forgive them in

00:46:00 --> 00:46:10

your heart also. Because if you don't forgive them in your heart, you know what's going to happen, these emotions are going to be bottled up and then there's going to be an explosion.

00:46:12 --> 00:46:54

That is not subject. Subject is what you forgive them on the outside and also on the inside. You decide yourself, you're going to let it go. You decide that you're going to let it go, you're not going to make a big deal of it. And if you show on the outside or it's okay, on the inside, you're cursing them. It's gonna come out one day and it's gonna come out really bad. It's gonna hurt you. It's gonna break you it's gonna break them. That's not the proper way of doing sober. proper way of doing somebody's that really you forgive someone from your heart. You set yourself free. You know, a grudge is called lil Why is it called Real? Oh, Hillel chains is also from the same group. Because

00:46:54 --> 00:47:23

when a person keeps a grudge in sight, first of all, he changed himself up. But when you forgive someone, you let yourself free and you free the other person. Also, if you're going on the pursuit of revenge, take two graves instead of one. You know, that means you're going to hurt the other person and you're also going to hurt yourself. So what's the best way? Sub? Ill Alladhina sub worm it'll slowly hurt Hola, eCola Houma Farah toward June, Kirby

00:47:25 --> 00:47:49

and this is why everything is good for a believer. If he goes through our times he's patient and that's good for him. If he goes through something good. Again, he is patient and that is good for him. But this is for who? For who? Only the believer because he realizes Oh my lord my Lord allowed this to happen to me for a reason

00:47:50 --> 00:47:53

he knows I don't know I'll just accept it and deal with it

00:47:55 --> 00:47:57

know what's the best way of keeping yourself together, keeping calm when going through good times or bad times what's the best way

00:50:48 --> 00:50:56

reminding yourself, Allah gave me this blessing. hi bye to remember him because he can always take it away.

00:50:57 --> 00:51:06

And when you lose something, always remember, Allah gave it to me once he can give it to me again, remain hopeful always.

00:51:07 --> 00:51:28

Hopefully Allah will give me something better instead of this. He took this away from me so that he could give me better always remain hopeful. Whether you lose a job or you lose a person, no matter who it is what it is always remember Allah wants the best for me. If this is gone, hopefully you'll give me something better.

00:51:29 --> 00:51:33

And you know what keeps a person stay together and calm in difficult times.

00:51:35 --> 00:51:43

It's summer enameled Salia because those who do Amel salah they learn to control their emotions.

00:51:44 --> 00:52:06

They have control over themselves over their reaction over what they say. And people who don't generally do normal Salah what happens there to week before their enough's. They become slaves to their nerves. So whatever they feel like they said whatever they want to do, they do it. However they react inside, you know the storm, they have no control over it.

00:52:08 --> 00:52:54

So what is necessary if we want to remain calm and composed in difficult times, like somebody very close to us passes away. You see somebody is really calm and another person is losing their mind. Why? Because one person used to do or Mazzaglia he has the Wakulla Allah Allah, He has hope in Allah. He has faith in God. This is why he can survive that difficult test. And the one who doesn't have a greater being to rely upon. Then of course, he's going to lose himself. Take the example of concept or the Allahu anha you know, in Jaya Helia before Islam, she lost a brother. She was so sad. She said verses of board tree so much in his remembrance. She was so sad and upset for years and

00:52:54 --> 00:53:01

years. This woman embraced Islam for her sons died in the way of Allah. She was fine.

00:53:02 --> 00:53:14

She lost a brother she almost lost her mind. She loses four children now boys. She's perfectly fine. What was the difference? Amen, right. She had faith in God.

00:53:15 --> 00:53:30

She depended on Allah subhanaw taala suburb, Arnold Salia. For such people, there's mafia, why forgiveness, because for every difficulty that a believer suffers, his sins are being erased and Agilent COVID For what for his patients and his open God.

00:53:31 --> 00:53:40

So these are the times when Allah tests us, our real person is exposed and based on that will our result be in the Hereafter?

00:53:42 --> 00:53:50

May Allah subhanaw taala give us that composure and that inner strength that we can bear the difficulties of life and inshallah get something in the middle
