demanded no pain may Allah have mercy upon his soul. He mentioned in his famous book and web aside mineral calamity, that sad that he loved or the happiness of a servant's y is in his or her reaction to the following three conditions. Number one, how would you react when you are blessed when you are enjoying the favors of Allah subhanaw taala upon him. Number two, how will you react when you are tried when you are tested with some calamities or some bad news? And number three, how would you react when you are when you fall into temptation and commit sin against Allah subhanaw taala according to imamoglu our happiness, our peace and contentment lies in the fact that when really act

00:00:57--> 00:01:42

to those three conditions, we should react in ways that will please Allah subhanaw taala only condition number one how to react to the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala by none other than showing gratitude and thankfulness to Allah Subhana Allah. When in doubt do now Mata Allah He led also how my brothers and sisters in Islam, if we were to count the blessings and the favors of Allah subhanaw taala, we will never be able to number them. So you have to show gratitude to Allah as a result of favoring you upon so many others who are not as blessed as you are. And as believers, we have to do that in three ways as well. Number one, internal recognition or internal gratitude, by

00:01:42--> 00:02:30

being content, deep inside your heart with the favors that las panatela had bestowed upon you. Number two, verbally what an venia mature obika for Hadith as for the favor that Allah had bestowed upon you tell and reveal it to everyone. And thirdly, by using these blessings that Allah has given you in ways that will only please him subhanho wa Taala the second condition my brothers and sisters in Islam is that when Allah subhanaw taala try you and Allah mentalities to how will a believer react to this test in order to experience safety, security, peace and so on. Despite the odd despite the fact that you are tested, and sometimes tested severely, the only way how a believer should

00:02:30--> 00:03:14

respond to trials and tribulations is by becoming patient a levina either asaba Tomasi button Paulo, in alila, he were in LA you're on your own. Those who are when afflicted with calamities, they only turn to Allah and say we belong to Las panatela. And to him We shall return and this is the slogan of Sabra or patients in Islam. Remember the story of the lady who was wailing as a result of losing her loved ones, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was passing by, and he saw her wailing so he told her Be patient or amateur war, be patient. So she responded to the prophet SAW Selim unknowing it was the prophet SAW Selim, and she told him you're not feeling what I'm feeling Get away from me or

00:03:14--> 00:03:59

something to that effect. later on. She was informed that it was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so she went back and apologized and she told him the Rasul Allah or messenger of Allah now I'm patient, the prophets Allah lotta sample her work in Namah sub Rufus submodel, all patients will be counted and will be rewarded for upon hearing or when you experience the first shock when you when you experience the first, you know, the bad news. As soon as you get those disturbing news, only then you display patience. That's a character that's the virtue of patience, not to say any word out of anger as a result of the news that you've heard, not to tear up your clothes when when

00:03:59--> 00:04:41

you hear someone died and so on so forth. You have to demonstrate that character of patients in order to feel later on that which was a bad news for you becomes something different you start viewing it differently as a result of your patience. The third condition my brothers and sisters, which emammal time mentioned in his book is sinning. How should a believer respond to sinning? nothing other than is the heart nothing other than seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala as a result of our error, so upon Allah the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam used to seek His default every single day 100 times Yeah, you are ness. The Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah mentioned in one of his

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

innovations to Buddha law he was stuck through repent to Allah Subhana Allah and seek forgiveness for it the prophets Allah Selim himself I seek is the far from Allah subhanaw taala 100 times per day every single day Can you imagine and those who have lost hope my brothers and sisters in Islam as

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

result of your sins. Listen to what Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the Quran to Leah I bear the Alina as rafiu Allah and fusi him. Letter panettone Rahmatullah in Allah. Hi, I'm Phil the Luba Jamia in the whole of Rahim tell them oh Mohammed My servants who have transgressed all bounds who have sinned against a las pinata eila day in and day out, tell them despair not from the mercy of Allah for Allah forgive all sins indeed in the whole offer. Rahim is the most forgiving, Most Merciful. So here you go. My brothers and sisters in Islam, if you wish to attain happiness, peace and contentment in this dunya remember how to react in ways that will please Allah subhanaw taala in

00:05:44--> 00:06:02

the following three conditions when you are blessed show gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala when you are tested and tried, be patient and when you sin and go back to Allah subhanaw taala and ask for his forgiveness as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
