Everything in this dunya starts small and then it grows slowly, slowly human beings, plants, even our careers our job, we start small and then we slowly slowly progress and get promoted and so on, except one thing, trials and tribulations, they usually hit hard and we start huge, massive, and then they diminish slowly, slowly as well. Depends on how you will be able to deal with them and find peace within these dramas that you may experience a life but remember one very important matter. Allah subhanaw taala had tailored made our trials and tribulations every one of us every individual can bear the trials that Allah subhanaw taala had destined and decided for us so don't

00:00:59--> 00:01:08

ever claim that your trials and problems are harder or bigger than others. Allah Subhana Allah Allah says in the Quran lay you can live long enough sin Illa

00:01:09--> 00:01:55

Allah subhanho wa Taala will never test you with any trials unless you are capable of handling it. The question now is how to deal with these trials when they strike how to find peace within ourselves. In the middle of all these dramas that we experienced in life in this episode in sha Allah Allah we will discuss six points that can help us cope with these trials and tribulations in sha Allah dial. Number one, remember, it is the cover of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Kula Shea in Hala Punahou because, indeed, everything we have created with a pre destination or pre planning Allah subhanaw taala pre planned every single action that you have witnessed and that you will

00:01:55--> 00:02:41

witness in the future as well, including those trials and tribulations and part of our Islam part of our faith is to submit to Allah His will. If that's Allah subhanaw taala his plan upon you then my brothers and sisters in Islam, we must accept it. Yes, we may shed some tears we may feel sad and grieve the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam cried when his son passed away, and he said, Indeed, the heart is grieving the eyes are shedding tears, but we only say what Allah subhanaw taala will be pleased with and that is, we belong to Allah and to Him we shall return. So feeling sad and going through these emotional battles is acceptable in Islam, there is no problem with it. However,

00:02:41--> 00:03:28

acceptance or being discontent is what could lead you to a problem in on the Day of Judgment. Number two, remember, your grief and your sadness will never drive away the trials, the trials already came to existence now you have to deal with it. So your grief and your sadness will never change that situation. What you need to do is to be patient and to think with people around you on how to go about this trial and how to ensure a lot of other learn lessons and wisdom from it. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran was Birla hochma Robic and be patient for the decision of your Lord, be patient, maybe Allah subhanaw taala will bring something good out of it or will train you and

00:03:28--> 00:04:13

prepare you for maybe what could be worse in the future. So remember to be patient and avoid any unnecessary grief that will never change the situation. Anyway. Number three, remember the trial that you're going through could have been worse Alhamdulillah the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, how amazing the condition or the affair of a believer is, if a trial before him, he is patient, and it is better for him. And if goodness have touched him, he is grateful and it is also better for him. So remember that that trial is much better than the situation other people are going through. So thank Allah subhanaw taala. And again, going back to point number two was number

00:04:13--> 00:04:58

four, also remember to every plan to every destiny that Allah subhanaw taala had distant upon us there is a specific wisdom that is something a reason behind it, that maybe we are ignorant of we don't know what Allah subhanaw taala intends by testing us in that particular way. So if we are lacking the knowledge of that particular wisdom, then we shouldn't, you know, question much about why things happen the way they happen. I had met a friend of mine some times ago who had lost her husband, and a couple of months later she lost her mother and she was questioning why Allah is doing this to me. Allah subhanaw taala is testing us. Allah subhanaw taala is putting us in trials to test

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

who will be firmed.

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

and accept the destiny and the power of Allah and who will show different attitude and behavior. That's why loss of the $100 cylinder, and Wally Nam Luan netcom. We surely are going to test you with loss of people, loss of family members, souls, provision businesses, and so on wabasha sabreen again patient is coming sobre is coming solver is actually the source of peace that that peaceful moment that you will experience is through patient was good enough. Sekar ma Levine I the owner of the home below that he will aashi you redo nawada and be patient with those who remember Allah tala day and night the they want it. They don't want anything they do. They don't desire anything other

00:05:45--> 00:06:27

than his pleasure. So you see, patient will be always the key of happiness MPs whenever you want to achieve anything in this dunya so don't question why things happen the way they happen, because sometimes we will not be given the wisdom or the reason behind these matters. Number five, remember that every trial that you go through with patience and perseverance, there is a reward to it. Remember the reward associated with trials and painful moments in this dunya the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed us that even a form that may poke you and cause a little bit of pain could be an expiation of previous sin. So it's a blessing sometimes, if you again if you

00:06:27--> 00:07:13

exercise patient what Bashir or sabreen and give good news to those who are patient and levena either asaba Tomasi button Paulo in LA or in LA Rajon simple those when they are afflicted with calamities and trials, they say we belong to Allah and to Him we shall return we submit to the other of Las panatela because at the end of the day, he will reward us when we reunite in general in sha Allah of that number six and the final point on my list in this episode in sha Allah, Allah is to remember one thing, realize that if the trial is not in your religion, it is the easiest drive to live with. Thank Allah so the handle dial, that Allah did not test you with your religion, that

00:07:13--> 00:07:56

Allah subhanaw taala did not test you with lack of faith or leaving the faith altogether. So when you look at some of the believers, some of the faithful will have actually neglecting neglected the salon neglected that I buy that and remove their hijab and and gave up their faith altogether. And then you look at your problems here Al Hamdulillah the older tries that I'm dealing with are not related to my religion, if we can practice and bring to realisation these six points that we have discussed then definitely you will be able to find peace in the middle of trials and tribulations as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
