Salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu so I was visiting my surgeon the other day in, he asked me about my job and what do I do for a living and so on? And I told him that I'm a student counselor. He said, Yes, but what do you actually do? I said, I counseled people, I try to help them figure out what do they want to do in life, get rid of their addictions, sought out the miseries and so on. He said something that I never thought of before. after that. He said, Have you ever seen your parents or your grandparents visiting a counselor, I really posed, and I said, never heard of such a thing. During my days growing up in my home. He said, These people didn't need a counselor. And he started

00:00:50--> 00:01:38

laughing. And I to start laughing. Because it is absolutely true. I remember my grandmother telling me one thing all the time, whenever there was a problem, don't worry, Allah subhanaw taala will sort it out for us. These people had a lot of faith in their hearts, even though they weren't so educated. They were in fact, illiterate. They never been to school sometimes. But they have that faith in Allah's promise that He will fulfill whatever he says in the Quran. Even if life seems so difficult for us, even if problems and difficulties are coming from all directions in Allaha la you California, Allah subhanho wa Taala will never ever break his promises, especially for the

00:01:38--> 00:01:46

believers. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, well, Medina, man Juan, you saw on your high do you want

00:01:47--> 00:02:40

to be man who's Zilla? More 100 Whoo hoo ha COVID beam can fall on home say to him, guff phoron home say to him, What else La Habana home. Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanaw taala sang this beautiful idea that those who believe in Allah subhanaw taala those who believe in the message of Islam, and do righteous deeds, and believe in that which was sent down upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it is indeed the truth from Allah subhanaw taala what will happen to these people, Allah will erase the sins completely will clean up the history from whatever they have done in the past. Not only that, but he will fix their affairs, Allah subhanho wa Taala will take care of the state,

00:02:40--> 00:03:15

whatever that state may be, maybe mental, maybe psychological, maybe emotional, maybe physical, Allah will take care of the state. That's why these people didn't need to see a counselor. They were firm in their belief about Allah subhanaw taala this promise in Allah lay up for me. Allah will never my brothers and sisters break his promises and this is enough for us to expect the best from him. Isn't that true? Allah subhanaw taala also stated Minami la slaley Hon. That caring owl

00:03:18--> 00:03:18

mean

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

he

00:03:22--> 00:04:13

who hired labor one ina jerseyan Whom I do along the axon EMA again Oh, man, oh Mon. Allah hug and those who do righteous deeds while they are believers. So this is the condition believe Eman and ALLAH SubhanA. Allah Allah and His message, what will happen to them, Allah will grant them a great and good and happy life, their true higher the true life that Allah subhanaw taala will grant us in this dunya and in the next in sha Allah down. Not only that, but such believers will receive the rewards in a manner that they haven't even expected. We never thought that's the promise of Allah subhanaw taala my brothers and sisters in Islam, so face these difficulties and trials, why do you

00:04:13--> 00:04:56

have that faith in your heart that Allah subhanaw taala will never break his promises If you fulfill the conditions of Eman if you lived in this dunya with number one priority in mind, Allah subhanaw taala and his religion that's why this old generation even though they have faced a lot of difficulties as well don't think that the life was so easy but they have that spot in the heart that will always direct them to the path of Allah subhanaw taala and that's Eman. My granny I will never forget when she told me just make dua Don't worry somebody died in the area and I was so down and sad and so on. She said just just ask Allah to relieve that sadness from your heart and I was young

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

at the time I didn't even hear what she said I didn't care about making dua

00:05:00--> 00:05:53

I just told her, our neighbor is gone. She said Yes, true. He's gone because Allah subhanaw taala took out his soul from his body, the soul that he had given him earlier and the one who take Souls is capable and able to take away your sadness. So make dua, Allah, if you look at the mindset, this lady, never been to school. She just had firm faith in Allah's promises. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, while Paula mu Komodo oni as 30 Lancome, Allah subhanaw taala said, Call upon me make dua and I will respond and they believed in that I wholeheartedly in action. Allah does not break promises. So call upon Him when you face these challenges and difficulties but make sure

00:05:53--> 00:06:33

that the DUA you making is not asking for something haram because Allah subhanaw taala will not respond in that case. Make sure when you make dua, you're not hasty you're not in a rush to receive the response from Allah subhanaw taala because the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said, Allah will respond to your data so long as you're not in haste so long as you're not rushing Allah subhanaw taala work according to Allah's plan and time not according to yours. Get back to our episode where we talk about the right time is a lost time not yours, your job is to make dua that's it. Make sure when you make dua to be certain that Allah subhanaw taala will respond to you don't

00:06:33--> 00:07:17

ever think or doubt that Allah subhanaw taala will never look at your DUA or hear it or fulfill it because the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim said although Allah and to move, you know Nabil ejabberd call upon Allah subhanaw taala you are certain in the response and the fulfillment of that da before making dua even remember, that Allah subhanaw taala will not accept or will not respond to your da if your source of income is haram your clothes is it from haram or Halal income your food that you feed yourself and your children? Is it from Halal income or otherwise? Please remember the process and said for end, use the jab Allah How could Allah respond to such an individual and finally, when

00:07:17--> 00:08:02

you make dua insist upon Allah subhanaw taala to respond to your dog don't ever give up and say I've been making this go off four days, four years and Allah never respond almost to the power of the Allah Anwar law. He said that I never cared or I never worried about the answer or the response of my dua. I care about making the DUA that's my job, because once you are gifted with the DUA, because that is worship and worship is a provision, Allah subhanaw taala picked you to make a DUA, Allah Subhana Allah Allah selected you to worship Him Subhanallah all the if you are gifted with raising of your hands and making dua, the response will be already there but the wind go back to our episode

00:08:02--> 00:08:46

a last time is the right time. So remember my brothers and sisters in Islam II man and righteous deeds are required so that Allah subhanaw taala can respond to you as a result you are granted and promised higher Tom Cleaver, beautiful wife in this dunya and in the next Allah subhanaw taala promised to erase your sins completely. Allah subhanaw taala promised excellent rewards on the day of judgment that he can't even imagine or fathom. And on top of that, Allah subhanaw taala promised to respond to your DUA to respond to your call, so call upon him and don't ever give up May Allah Subhana Allah accept our diets, and may Allah subhanaw taala make all of these verses all of these

00:08:46--> 00:08:54

promises a reason for us to expect the best from him. Zack la hyaluron Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah
