Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah he salam ala Holly or Sanlam? How can we get rid of fearing the unknown, fearing whatever may happen in the future. In my case, for example, not so long time ago, I was injured badly my lower back. And as a result, I was pinned to a wheelchair for nearly a year. And during this very painful time, I had this fear in my heart about what could happen in the future fear of the unknown, fear of not being able to walk again, will I ever function as I used to or not, and so on and so forth. And as a result of that fear, my faith, my Eman was affected this type of fear. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam is sufficient to destroy

00:00:55--> 00:01:40

your happiness, your contentment and worst of all, it is sufficient to destroy your Eman your very faith, the most valuable thing in the life of a Muslim but this is something that we all need to reflect on. The wealth that you've accumulated over the years may turn into poverty one day, the health that Allah subhanaw taala had given you had blessed you with may deteriorate. The peace and safety that you have experienced in life may cease to exist your loved ones, the people that you treasure, the most may pass away in front of your very eyes, all of these issues, and so many more, are major concern for every individual, no doubt about it. But what will make us unique as believers

00:01:40--> 00:02:26

is dealing with these situations properly, according to the instruction given by Allah subhanaw taala and His Prophet when these situations arise. So how can we deal with such a fear? The fear of the unknown simply by making a decision today without any further delay, that you're going to be content and happy satisfied with whatever Allah subhanaw taala had destined upon us, no matter how difficult the challenge may seem to you always raise your hands to Allah subhanaw taala and supplicate along in the A slim tuna FC like oh Allah I have submitted my whole self my whole being to you. That's the meaning of Islam. My brothers and sisters forum Vinny Bacala, ICA a and can so

00:02:26--> 00:03:11

make me happy and satisfied with your color with your destiny, whatever it may be, want to be a robot army and be kind and gentle to me. In all situations. When you do that my brothers and sisters in Islam the unknown that you used to feel in the past becomes known to you obvious and very clear. How is that possible because you have made a decision to accept the destiny of Allah subhanaw taala not only that, but to be happy and satisfied with it. And that's the very meaning of being a Muslim. A Muslim is the one who submits to Allah subhanaw taala willingly, humbly without objection, without having anything in his heart to complain about Allah's color about Allah's instructions and

00:03:11--> 00:03:58

commands. That's the very meaning of our faith of Islam. So now you are facing these trials with the mindset of it's good for me. That's why the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, other than the unreal moment, how amazing the affair of a believer is, when he struck with trials, he's patient and it is good for him and when good touches him when Allah subhanaw taala bless him with something good and great, he is grateful, he's thankful and it is also good for him. So the core of the matter my brothers and sisters in Islam is you and your attitude when you face either good news, or what may seem to you as evil or bad because the color of Allah subhanaw taala is always good, it

00:03:58--> 00:04:44

is us that we perceive it differently sometimes and so if you demonstrate the right attitude, then Allah subhanaw taala will ease your way during these trying moments. Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran ma Saba MIMO see button. It'll be in there on a human biller. Yeah, the Kolber will Lahu be cliche gnarly, but whatever trials tribulations and challenges that we face in life, it is by the will of Allah subhanaw taala but whosoever believed in Allah, Allah will guide his heart allow and make his heart content with these trials and tribulations. Allah Who equally shy in Alim and Allah subhanaw taala had knowledge over all things, so he know what he's doing and most certainly he had

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

written this upon you for your own benefits. So when you accept the decisions and the other of Allah subhanaw taala upon you with a happy and satisfied heart, a loss of 100 Allah will ease your affair, Allah subhanaw taala

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

I will strengthen you to cope with these challenge. That's why the Prophet Muhammad SAW Sam said all my youth are sambar use of beer hula, whosoever struggles to be patient upon whatever that that person may experience a loss of behind what Allah will grant him patience. So, have you made a decision yet? To be content, happy and satisfied in advance with whatever that you may face in life? May Allah Subhana Allah grant us patience, and may Allah subhanaw taala enable us to cope with all challenges in life.
