You know, satisfaction only comes from a lifespan of DOD, that's one of the things that we get deceived about in the dunya, we think that we're going to find satisfaction in the dunya. And that's just not what we're built for. That's not what the dunya is built for the dunya is not built for satisfaction. And that's why the Prophet I set out to sit down, he said, you know, if a person had a value of gold, they would want another, right, that's the nature of desire, you think that and it might be material thing, or it might be not material thing, it might be, you know, a certain income bracket and a certain type of house and a certain type of neighborhood or whatever, or it might be a

It doesn't work like that the universe is not mechanistic, it's not materialistic. There's things that you can't see, the people of faith are the people who believe in the unseen, there's more than just neurons and

00:01:36--> 00:01:56

hormones going on. Right? And so that's why these things are things that a lot can give, and only a lot can give satisfaction, right? A true self a sense of self worth, right? True love, right? And these sorts of things are things that Allah has found that I was the only one that can grant them or take them away. And so at the end of the day, we have to turn back to him if those are the things that we want
