Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was salam, ala rasulillah, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So one of my hobbies is to interview and ask questions to those who are successful in different different fields. And one of them was an athlete, someone who competed him in sport competitions. So I asked him one day about the pain the team might experience during the training and so on. So he told me, the cold state that he told me that pain during training wasn't in his dictionary, pain during training wasn't in his dictionary. For him pain was part of the package that led him to the ultimate pleasure, victory and championship spot

00:00:51--> 00:01:34

allowing you look at those people who enjoy the pain, the physical pain in order for them to become champions like Muhammad Ali, I remember he has a quote along those lines that every time you feel pain, he will remind himself that, hey, you want to become the champion, you want to be on the top, then keep on doing the training. He said also, he hated every minute in the gym, because that's the time where no one enjoys, they just have to go through that hassle in order to become who they are. So the end result after the pain is, you know, is just unimaginable. In fact, the the forget the entire pain, even a pregnant lady would say that a pregnant lady will be screaming, because of the

00:01:34--> 00:02:21

pain of delivery. But once you see the baby she forget that entire period of those those pain as mothers, even there was a movie I think in the 90s. And this is not an invitation by the way for you to go and watch the movie but just for the sake of the reminder. And the showing the movie, Tom Hanks was the actor he got stuck in an island after a plane crash. And he's he tried to lit fire it tried to, to let fire in order for him to cook and maybe to show planes and stuff like that. And so panel is trying to hit two wooden objects to in order for him to cause fire to lit and it took a few days to do that. And the director was showing the pain and agony of the actor because he can't and

00:02:21--> 00:03:05

he would. He's He's handled, bleed and so on and so forth. But at the end, he was successful in creating the fire and support alarm. Right after that. He was dancing and cheering up and shouting and screaming of happiness as if he did not go through all this pain. This is what it means to endure with patience until you achieve what you want. So pain is part of the package. Remember this. This life is not gender. This life is meant to be for toil and struggle Allah subhanaw taala said lack of the Hala canal in Santa Fe Cabot, this is your nature you were created in in the middle of this agony and pain so accept that and excel insha Allah and Allah subhanaw taala will ease your
