I grew up hearing the phrase that the

00:00:15 --> 00:00:18

one who lacks something can never give it,

00:00:18 --> 00:00:20

can never offer the same thing. But later

00:00:20 --> 00:00:23

in life, I've actually learned that the one

00:00:23 --> 00:00:25

who lacks something might be the one who

00:00:25 --> 00:00:27

is best and most capable of giving it

00:00:27 --> 00:00:30

back, of offering that which he lacks. Look

00:00:30 --> 00:00:32

my dear brothers and sisters in stem and

00:00:32 --> 00:00:35

everyone who's watching. No one can truly feel

00:00:35 --> 00:00:38

what you're going through except someone with humanity,

00:00:38 --> 00:00:40

with a live heart, with a sensible mind,

00:00:40 --> 00:00:43

with a mind that can understand the extent

00:00:43 --> 00:00:45

of the pain that you're going through. Even

00:00:45 --> 00:00:46

if you had never experienced

00:00:47 --> 00:00:50

that same pain. The prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi

00:00:50 --> 00:00:51

Wasallam mentioned,

00:01:03 --> 00:01:06

That you would see the true believers in

00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

regards to the being merciful to one another

00:01:08 --> 00:01:11

like the one body. If one of its

00:01:11 --> 00:01:11

organs

00:01:12 --> 00:01:14

felt any sort of pain or distress, the

00:01:14 --> 00:01:17

entire body organs will share that same ache.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:19

This is the condition of a true believer.

00:01:20 --> 00:01:22

See, we're all missing something in life, and

00:01:22 --> 00:01:25

sometimes this loss makes us broken, full of

00:01:25 --> 00:01:29

intense emotions like anger, frustration, and frustration, and

00:01:29 --> 00:01:30

resentment, and sometimes

00:01:30 --> 00:01:34

deep sadness, jealousy, and perhaps even envy. And

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

sometimes

00:01:35 --> 00:01:39

that same loss makes us more sensitive, cautious

00:01:39 --> 00:01:41

and more empathetic to one another. A medical

00:01:41 --> 00:01:44

doctor or a surgeon who may operate on

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

you and open up your body doesn't need

00:01:46 --> 00:01:49

to feel the same illness, the same sickness

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

in order for him to offer you the

00:01:51 --> 00:01:53

necessary cure and help you out, regain your

00:01:53 --> 00:01:55

strength and regain your health. All he needs

00:01:55 --> 00:01:56

is

00:01:56 --> 00:01:57

knowledge, experience,

00:01:57 --> 00:02:00

and a caring heart. Similarly, a true believer,

00:02:00 --> 00:02:03

a noble heart doesn't accept to see people

00:02:03 --> 00:02:06

starving to death just because he grew up

00:02:06 --> 00:02:08

starving and just because he grew up in

00:02:08 --> 00:02:10

poverty. Such a person

00:02:10 --> 00:02:13

refuses to trample over others just because he

00:02:13 --> 00:02:16

was trampled over in the past. A noble

00:02:16 --> 00:02:18

person, my brothers, my sisters in Islam and

00:02:18 --> 00:02:21

everyone. A true believer in Allah and his

00:02:21 --> 00:02:25

messenger and the final day is constantly grateful

00:02:25 --> 00:02:27

to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala because he knows

00:02:27 --> 00:02:29

that even the pain that he went through

00:02:29 --> 00:02:32

growing up has a meaning and a value

00:02:32 --> 00:02:34

to it. It was the best teacher in

00:02:34 --> 00:02:36

life and it disciplined him. Every scar on

00:02:36 --> 00:02:39

his body, every emotional pain that he had

00:02:39 --> 00:02:40

experienced

00:02:40 --> 00:02:43

doesn't really hurt him anymore. But rather, they

00:02:43 --> 00:02:46

make him stronger to assist others who might

00:02:46 --> 00:02:48

be going through the same or similar

00:02:48 --> 00:02:51

experiences today. A noble person, a true believer,

00:02:51 --> 00:02:54

my brothers and sisters in Islam. Many a

00:02:54 --> 00:02:56

times, if he lacks something, he is the

00:02:56 --> 00:02:59

most capable of giving it. He is the

00:02:59 --> 00:03:02

most capable of informing people about it. Nobility,

00:03:02 --> 00:03:06

faith, iman, and honor are progressive, are learnable.

00:03:06 --> 00:03:08

Something that you can cultivate.

00:03:08 --> 00:03:10

They can grow better, bigger,

00:03:10 --> 00:03:14

and more effective. So cultivate yourselves my brothers

00:03:14 --> 00:03:17

and sisters in Islam on understanding one another,

00:03:17 --> 00:03:20

feeling for each other, in believing in people's

00:03:20 --> 00:03:23

abilities and their capacity of growing and becoming

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

better themselves. If you fall in a pit,

00:03:25 --> 00:03:28

mark it, make a sign, make a warning

00:03:28 --> 00:03:30

for others so that they don't fall in

00:03:30 --> 00:03:32

it as you did. But if you never

00:03:32 --> 00:03:35

fall, learn about the harms of falling into

00:03:35 --> 00:03:38

dangerous zones and inform people, advise them not

00:03:38 --> 00:03:41

to even come closer to these dangerous roots.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:43

Because the the fact of the matter, my

00:03:43 --> 00:03:46

brothers, my sisters in Islam and everyone, many

00:03:46 --> 00:03:48

a times someone who lacks something, if he's

00:03:48 --> 00:03:51

noble, if he's a true believer in Allah

00:03:51 --> 00:03:54

and the last day will be able to

00:03:54 --> 00:03:56

give it back better than anyone else. All

00:03:56 --> 00:03:59

it takes is honor, nobility and faith.

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

Iman
