Hello and welcome to

00:00:19--> 00:00:54

All praise due to Allah and His praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family, his companion and his followers on ask Allah subhanaw taala to shower this university, and the faculty and the students, and this must have been those who attended with his mercy and His blessings. And I'm so happy and glad to be with you. today. I would like to extend again my thanks to the Vice Chancellor of the University and

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

a new Masjid and the great scholars who hamdulillah

00:01:03--> 00:01:07

have been blessed to meet in this trip.

00:01:08--> 00:01:56

My brothers and sisters, I would like to talk to you tonight about a very dear subject to me personally. Because whenever I think about optimism, I think about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and I suddenly Mallika the Allahu and once described the prophets of Salaam by saying, Can you hear bufala QMF is Sahih al Bukhari Muslim reported that the prophet SAW Selim, he used to love optimism. And not only that he loves optimism sallallahu sallam. No, he himself was in a very optimistic person, very obstinate, optimistic person. So a lot of them. Not only that his personality is based on optimism. It's also his Shetty is based on optimism, the ideology of Islam,

00:01:57--> 00:02:46

the ideology of Islam, the foundation of our towhead of our belief is based on the concept of optimism that you always view Allah Subhana, WA Tada. And whatever he decreed in a positive manner in a positive way. Even the rulings of the Sharia is based on optimism is based on optimism. For instance, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us whenever you make your art whenever you ask Allah Subhana, Allah and soeharto he said, He that I had to confer upon Allah homophily in shape. When you make when you pray to Allah, you shouldn't say Oh Allah, forgive me insha Allah if you wish, if you want, no you said Oh ALLAH forgive me. Without if without buts without f because that certainty in

00:02:46--> 00:03:35

the heart is motivated by your optimism that Allah Subhana Allah and listening and accepting what you say is not like oh if you want if you wish, No, you shouldn't do that. You know the whole concept of a Toba the repentance and you repent to Allah Subhana Allah and anytime while you are deeply believe that Allah Subhana Allah world coming you know hesitation. No, you don't think about it twice. What motivates you what this based on based on the concept of optimism and abuse Allah Allahu Allahu Allah wa sallam. His level of optimism is even beyond. Yeah, and he this and maybe salatu salam as also a Muslim reported insight that when he leaves in a journey, let's say this is a

00:03:35--> 00:04:22

journey, and he will hear someone his name Salim can either send me a silent Cartagena Salomon, we will come back Yeah, and it silent is some that means safe. So he said we will come back to our family safe. He went to build that sense of optimism in the heart just by hearing the name Sadie. If it's if it's a journey, where is war involved, and he here to have somebody his name NASA, he was said that said we are going to give victory in sha Allah nano mon Sol in Baden Illa. He even even use these names to build to plant the seeds of optimism in the heart and the mind of the people and abuse of alcohol to sell them when a Lost Planet Allah told him to migrate from Mecca to Medina. Do

00:04:22--> 00:04:59

you know what Medina is used to be called? used to be called yesterday? What's yesterday of yesterday? It has a negative connotation in it, it means that something will decrease minute three Okay, so in the case of Salim said calella to some mohyla three, nobody should call Medina anymore yathrib. Ah, nobody allowed to call it this in nemaha. The goodness the city of goodness. See he wants to build that sense of optimism in their mind in their heart. Roger Jackson and maybe Shannon and he said your shaula mind

00:05:00--> 00:05:50

As Harold hellebore, he said no bill silly. No change it to peace. Name yourself peace. Two men came to the process and said What's your name? He said we both known in our family as El mohanan. The only the disrespected once he said no from now on your name should be alimak Roman, the two honorable people, Kannada Sinhala and I'm in the academy Sheldon Bharara and I'm an author of the new Corolla hombre. All this in a hurry, the newbies are fallen. Over the course of his years. Somebody told him jasola I came from a valley known as the Valley of the misguidance said no go back to people to change the name of this valley. Let it be the Valley of guidance. Yasser Allah I came

00:05:50--> 00:05:57

from a land known as lebra. The dusty land, he said no change this to be hubiera to be green.

00:05:59--> 00:06:52

Not just this sense of optimism in the profits or someone's life. It is so unique. It is so unique. It is one of his main characters sallallahu wasallam, in one of the most difficult times, during the profits of salons, time and life when he was surrounded with the kuffaar from every corner in Medina, every corner around him from Medina, the Arab tribes have settled, they came together to attack the prophets of Allah. At that moment, the prophets Allah what he was telling his followers, what he was telling the believers, what he was telling his companions, he was telling them layerable Ivana handle ma bellava this religion will reach as that light reach every corner in the earth.

00:06:53--> 00:07:11

It will go to the farthest east and to the farthest West. It came over from Medina to Malaysia, it go over from Medina to Japan, it go all the way from from Medina for somebody like me coming from Houston to speak about Islam, Allahu Akbar, Allah

00:07:12--> 00:07:25

this Deen have no borders. This religion has no limit does not have a specific any race or or color.

00:07:26--> 00:08:11

It's a religion and the prophets of Salaam have given that sense of optimism in their mind in that difficult moment. But being an optimistic person is not something like I said today, we don't have a button in our body, you push it and I became an optimistic From now on, it doesn't work this way. And nobody says on them. He puts something, a rule that when I teach a course in ethics, and when I teach the students I told them that one of the things that the process I'm told us and it's one of the principles of ethics, that enemies of Salaam said in tandem was sambro with the sub bordwell hell movie tandem, Manu sabetta somebody he sets our Salah, in order for you to achieve, to achieve

00:08:12--> 00:08:48

suberb to achieve him to be patient, to be calm, to be Kava control over yourself. You need to go through process, you need to go through struggle you need to achieve that it's not going to happen automatically like that you became all this good conductor, you will be inheriting it or it's natural coming. No you have to work on it. It's like knowledge knowledge you don't just born yeah and knowledgeable person, you have to acquire the knowledge and same thing with character. You have to build your character you have to build your character.

00:08:49--> 00:09:06

So how can we build that character? How can we became an optimistic people, optimism, optimism, it is simple optimism It is to be able to see all those opportunities in your difficulties.

00:09:07--> 00:09:47

Opportunity, you see all those opportunities and your difficulties versus pessimism. The person this person is the one who always see difficulties in his or her opportunities. Every time I give them opportunity they see difficulties in it. Anytime you see that that's a pessimist person. And there is so many of them around on onsala ceramah Tanaka How can you became an optimistic person I have few points I want to share it with you. And I will make sure that these are very practical points that you can start from now working on it in yourself.

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

Number one,

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

in order for you to have an optimistic person, you need to understand the right understanding of the concept of other alpha which is the predestined

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

Because if you don't understand this concept clearly, you, it's very hard for you to be an optimist. And parts, there's two big subjects, something I will be teaching shall on this coming weekend in a moment of class, but what concern me in this particular topic, which is related to optimism, to know one thing, that Allah Subhana, Allah put a rule in this dunya, which we call it a spa and massage the bat, to care and attach. In order for you to have the results, you have to take the necessarily means I was finally met this Junior like this. It's like he is engineers, and you study engineering, it's one plus one equal to you do this process, you get this results, very clear. That's the system

00:10:48--> 00:11:32

that a lot put it in this life, that builds a sense of optimism. So I know if I do 123 that will lead to that result. If I don't do this, I'm not gonna take that result. That's how I build that system. That's part of that Allah subhanaw taala didn't make things based, no system, no everything on this earth, everything happening to us, there is a system for it, you can see it, you can see the pattern of it, you can know that if you do 123 that means you deserve gender. If you do 123405, if you do this, you'll be happy, you will be successful. And when Allah subhanaw taala decrees something upon you, because of reasons he did it this way, because this is the perfect way to do it,

00:11:32--> 00:12:15

because that's the best way to do it. That's the right formula for it for it. One also thing that helped me to understand the concept of a paddock make you an optimistic person to know that we have a free will. We not like some people believe human beings have no way at all, when if you have no Well, you will never be an optimistic person, you have a free world, you have a free choice. And Allah subhanaw taala out of His justice, that he loves you to choose your action, and he will hold you accountable for it in the Day of Judgment. And he will hold you accountable for it in the Day of Judgment. But you have the freedom to make your choices, make your choices. So it's up to you what

00:12:15--> 00:12:54

you want to do. It's up to you to be an optimistic person who passes, it's up to you to choose how you react to certain things that happen to you in your life in your life, we might not be able to change the direction of the wind when we are sailing. But always we can adjust our sailing, to sell and to go to new destination in life, you always have the choice to make a new start to make a new beginning to start over again. That's That's the power of the philosophy that Allah has given to human beings over angels, for example.

00:12:55--> 00:13:00

Number two, the second point that tells you to be an optimistic person,

00:13:01--> 00:13:01

which is

00:13:03--> 00:13:08

interesting. It's one of the thing that make you an optimistic person, your appearance.

00:13:09--> 00:13:11

How you carry yourself

00:13:12--> 00:13:32

has a huge impact in you modern psychologists, in all psychology, you study old theories, they always say the old saying, Let me state the new one, the new ones. The new studies agree that our physiology impact our psychology, not the other way around.

00:13:33--> 00:14:20

All the new modern studies agree on that, that our physiology impacts our psychology. The way you carry yourself, it will affect your mood will affect the way you think. So Pamela, and this is something that Islam took great care of it. Why do you think Muslims speak a lot about you being clean? You look nice, why our messages look nice, what our city should be clean our street should be looks nice. Why is that to speak about and Nevada that you the moment it shouldn't be always clean? It is because when you like that you act upon this Subhanallah studying the history of African American in America when they brought them as slave. They were not slave in Africa. Some of them

00:14:20--> 00:15:00

were princes. There is a new movie called The slave Prince. I don't know if you saw this movie or not. It's a movie just recently came up. Speaking about a Muslim Prince was taken from West Africa as a slave to America. And later on Abraham Lincoln freed him and give him his title back. Give him his title. It's a beautiful story. Very inspiring story. But one of the things that is so interesting about this dark era in the history of America, how they treated slave, the slavery, that's the slave masters, one of the things they used to do. slaves are not allowed to take a shower for a week. They

00:15:00--> 00:15:34

Not allowed to wear good clothes. They know why you think they do that, to break their spirit, to make them act like animals, not like human being, it is because the outside impact the inside the outside impact the inside. So if you want to be an optimistic person, you have to look at your appearance. Allah Subhana Allah when he described the believers, what a bad man in the arena, the servant of man, the one who would expect next Can I come?

00:15:35--> 00:15:50

The ones who pray now, the one who fast No, the one who donate no has nothing to do with the one book who have certain article effect No. And let the name shoe only

00:15:51--> 00:16:04

speak about their appearance, the way they talk, the way you walk. Because the way that you walk, it will impact the way you behave. Do you walk with arrogance? Do you walk like a dead

00:16:06--> 00:16:12

man walking like you know, dragging his feet and like you know then

00:16:14--> 00:16:15

straighten up

00:16:16--> 00:16:33

a lot of time in Edina don't make our legend dead. stand out. That's why in the piece of Solomon he stand when he walks his back straight, jab, unsaid sometimes we we kind of run out of breath just to catch up with the prophet SAW Salah

00:16:35--> 00:16:55

when he walked he doesn't drag his feet like dead person. He walked with walk full of energy, full of enthusiasm. That's the walk that you want to see our Muslim brother and sister walk with confidence. You might be you might not be a king of some font, but you can walk like one.

00:16:56--> 00:17:18

Don't walk with arrogant, walk with high self esteem with confidence that will make you believe it or not an optimistic person. Raise your hand up and don't walk with like somebody who is sick or something like that. His style is the image of the character. Your style is the image of your character. That's why I

00:17:19--> 00:18:02

used to love to dress in the nice clothes. I'm not talking about to be too expensive, but it's been nice. Something you care about. You care about your appearance, and maybe some saw a man his old and his his white his beard is white and it's missing his beard snazzy in Ibiza for them said two things he said on one occasion car. McLaren Allahu schaffen Ukraine if you want to grow a beard, take care of it. Take good care of it if you want to grow hair take good care of her. It's not like some grown here some gone there. No, no, you have to look nice. That's why you trim your mustache you don't want your mustache eat with you. Okay, it is the appearance the look

00:18:03--> 00:18:10

also in the face of Solomon another Hadith he said dye your hair don't don't don't keep it white like the diet

00:18:11--> 00:18:18

because it was so missing so you only can who Sam atambayev offer honey. He's like like a cloud.

00:18:21--> 00:18:45

So this is one thing you need to work to work to work on it. Make sure that you have a good style. Even your new young because that will build your character will make you have confidence in yourself. And that's what will build also the sense of optimism. Number three just do with the appearance. But I put it by itself. Smiling

00:18:47--> 00:18:59

smile. You know what I always noticed this whenever I go to country visit to community visit domestic I see how many people smile to me when I'm a stranger

00:19:00--> 00:19:14

in a smile is such a beautiful things. Well, like brothers or sisters. Yeah, in your teeth is not our own. You can smile. You can show it It's okay. You know smile. Smiling is such a beautiful thing.

00:19:15--> 00:19:30

If you Yeah, and you find your friend, your colleagues, with without smile, give them one of yours. And he will have it immediately. Just let sprint smile in Nabhi sallallahu wasallam

00:19:31--> 00:19:51

job jabber. So many so many companions said almarai to nebia salsa Illa motivation. I never jabber said I never met in person unless I found him smiling. Another one said every time I saw the person my life he was smile. Can anybody say that about you?

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

can even listen you know every time I saw this person, every time I roll my eyes, I lay my eyes on them on him or her

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

She was smiling. And his wife saying smiling because Mashallah some of us all smile with their friends outside, but when you go home, okay, you know, completely different attitude. But he said no, he's smiling inside the house and outside the house.

00:20:19--> 00:20:23

You know, there is some of you, I don't know, did you lose your smile?

00:20:24--> 00:20:34

If you lost your smile, I have a good news for you. Your smile didn't go anywhere just right under your nose. Just fear see you smiling. So

00:20:35--> 00:20:41

smiling is not going to make other feels good. It's going to make you feel good.

00:20:42--> 00:20:53

Smile, give a sense of confidence, sense of happiness, a sense of acceptance to yourself first. And that's the basis of the basis of optimism.

00:20:55--> 00:21:18

Number four, you want to be an optimistic person in life. Make sure that you fill your heart with goodness for others. Don't fill your heart with hate, jealousy, envy towards others. Your heart is like a cup. Whatever you're gonna fill it up with it's going to be filled up there is no more space. That's the amount of

00:21:20--> 00:21:26

emptiness inside that you are you filled it up with good it will it will be only producing good.

00:21:27--> 00:21:29

Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran

00:21:31--> 00:21:34

he or Allah mila roofie Paulo,

00:21:36--> 00:21:37

Chico

00:21:39--> 00:21:50

pharmacies, in your heart goodness, he will give you a good news. He will give you good that's how it is. I was looking at our hearts.

00:21:51--> 00:22:04

This optimism it will never come from a heart filled with envy filled with jealousy filled with hate. Those people cannot be optimistic they cannot be an optimist optimistic people.

00:22:07--> 00:22:08

Number five,

00:22:09--> 00:22:13

if you want to be an optimistic person learn to be positive thinker.

00:22:15--> 00:22:31

Be positive thinker. You know that is this farmer. He has two children he has Mashallah twins. But they are completely the opposite. One is a very optimistic person and the other person kid is the most awesomest kids you can think of.

00:22:33--> 00:22:53

So he want to do an experiment and the kids so they bring a big huge box and their birthday gifts. Big Huge bottles for both of them. So the open the first part that the passengers ticket, he opened it and he found inside this shiny beautiful bicycle.

00:22:54--> 00:23:05

beautiful red and shiny is very beautiful. And another train, you know Thomas train, if they have a train very, two gifts, it was their birthday.

00:23:06--> 00:23:34

So immediately the kid said, Dad, Mom, why did you give me that gift for you should give me only one now to I'm going to be confused which one I'm going to play with? That's going to make me feel bad. And you know what? Why would you give me a shiny bicycle for it's easy to scratch and its own scratch? It will be look it will look bad. And then now I can I have to worry about it more than enjoying and he made it the most miserable thing ever happened to

00:23:36--> 00:23:39

so the other kids open the box to big box

00:23:41--> 00:23:44

and all what he found manure.

00:23:46--> 00:23:46

Just the manure

00:23:48--> 00:23:50

and maybe a little bit of hate.

00:23:51--> 00:24:05

Then he said that? He said he said Where did you hide the pony? You know the little horse? You hide it somewhere? I'm sure this just the introduction is positive thinker.

00:24:07--> 00:24:24

You know, where's the horse? Where did you hide the horse? Okay, so it's might be a positive thinker. Can you think positive? Why would you think I was in a negative way? There is a hadith maybe some of you heard this hadith before.

00:24:25--> 00:24:59

But I'm not sure if you ever thought about it this way. There is a very famous inside of a hottie in a bizarre solemn said there is three people entered a cave and a huge rock came and block the exit. So each one of them start asking along with one of his good deeds. One of them said Yala. I used to have a female cousin. And I like those girls so much. And so many times I tried to seduce her to seduce her, but she refuse. Good Woman. One day she came to me and she asked for money I asked her for to give me herself first and when

00:25:00--> 00:25:11

I was very close to that. She told me why you don't marry me. If you want me so bad like that, just marry. And Hello. Why would you do that? He said, I gave her the money and I let her go.

00:25:13--> 00:25:16

I have a question. When you hear this story.

00:25:17--> 00:25:49

Most of us when we hear this story, what we will be focusing on? Wow, how a bad guy this is taking advantage of his cousin. When she needed money he took advantage. See, we think about the negative part of the story. But Mohammed Salalah Solomon, he mentioned the story, he was not even talking about this at all. Actually, the main point from the story is the last portion that he lets her go. So the profits are only focused in the positive part of the story.

00:25:50--> 00:26:00

Which is him in the end, realizing that this is not noble thing to do, and he let her go. That's how positive he is. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:26:01--> 00:26:22

It may be so solemn look at the Society of Mecca. Can you think what do you think of back at that time? what they do? They bury their dogs. Some of them bury their their daughters alive. They still they fight for over nothing. They fought 40 years to tribes in Arabia 40 years, a bloody war for 40 years. Why over a camel?

00:26:24--> 00:26:33

40 years over a camel because the camel win the race. So somebody else came and kill the camera. 40 years of bloody war.

00:26:34--> 00:27:03

ignorant. They make the off campus news, nobody we're close when they make off how ignorant this could be how ignorant people you can think of. And you can think of so many things like this, but listen to it, the process of himself kind of in a birth to 10 minute muckety muck of law. I came to complete the good manners that you have. He didn't look at the society as something doing something bad something wrong.

00:27:06--> 00:27:23

You know, one of the beautiful things I have to say since they land in this country in here in Malaysia, one of the best thing I ever noticed that this positive way. So many people talk about I saw the local the people from Malaysia, they always talk about the great things that this country have.

00:27:24--> 00:28:02

They talk about how Mashallah beautiful masters we have how very good How great freedom that we have is it how advanced technology and never heard anyone say or like every country I go to it all we have this we have this and every country has its own problem, like maybe something haram or halal not allowed. Practice is one practice. But when you go to many countries, all the people of that country focus on that wrong practices in the society. But since they landed here, I noticed that everybody pointed out the positive. And that's why this country going forward. Because they're not focusing on these little things.

00:28:04--> 00:28:41

And this isn't a key point in success in life. If you want to be an optimistic person, you need to learn how to be positive thinker. You think about the positive thing, you focus on the positive things, and maybe some of them said and the Muslim there is a group of people intergender not because the fast so much not because they pray so much. No, but their heart color reviva it's like the white burbs very doesn't know any bad or evil feelings, they are positive, there are positive.

00:28:44--> 00:28:56

When you look being positive, even when problems happen, even when when calamity strike you think about it in a positive way. Think about it in a positive way. A man

00:28:57--> 00:29:02

a man was brought to the into the province of Southern drunk, completely wasted.

00:29:04--> 00:29:18

So on the basis of them to apply the punishment. So one person said that anahola man what person all was the catching drunk? Then individual Salim said, Don't do that. Don't say that.

00:29:19--> 00:29:20

Don't say that.

00:29:21--> 00:29:24

This man loves Allah and His messenger.

00:29:25--> 00:29:41

Yes, he's drinking. But he still have other good things in his heart. Yes, he's not the best Muslim in this area when it comes to drinking. He's weak when it comes to this. But there is another area he is so strong in it. And there is something good in his heart in

00:29:42--> 00:29:45

this regard, that positive thing that this person has.

00:29:47--> 00:29:53

Unfortunately, drinking is not something simple as a major sin, but still the process I'm said he loves along his messenger.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

A woman committed Zina, he still mentioned out the tills repentance.

00:30:00--> 00:30:13

Such great thing. She repented to our last panel. He did not focus on the mistake sallallahu wasallam because he's an optimistic person. And optimistic people focus on the positive. Think of the positive.

00:30:17--> 00:30:39

When you look at the, as I said, the calamities that strike you in your life, you start thinking, what is the wisdom behind? What's the benefit that I get out of it? So Allah, sometimes brothers and sisters, sometimes our eyes need to be washed with our tears. So we can see live more clearly.

00:30:41--> 00:30:43

We can see live brighter afterwards.

00:30:44--> 00:30:52

That tears that comes to you, it meant to wash your eyes that make it to your vision, even stronger. Thinking in a positive manner is

00:30:54--> 00:31:00

also part of being passengers. And the opposite of being positive being negative.

00:31:01--> 00:31:09

To only point the wrong but also there's another aspect here. We're being superstitious,

00:31:10--> 00:31:44

being superstitious, you know, like people, they are basic services with system numbers. Like for example, funny things even America you know, we're on America like I always tell Americans, you guys all say we're advanced with this. But you know, they're they have very, any belief to number 13 you will not find a bed code number 13. In America, like in hospital, you will not find a floor it's called 13 and buildings, you will not find a role in the airplane called 13.

00:31:46--> 00:31:56

Because the suspicious with this, they have the superstitions with this number. And some people they are associated with so different somebody superstition with their mother in laws for example.

00:31:58--> 00:32:16

People have different things. Think of it negative way some burns some colors. This lamp came to destroy that meaning. numbers they don't have enough cannot be superstition with, with numbers with names with month was days with no.

00:32:18--> 00:32:21

It be called form we call it a papaya which is in

00:32:24--> 00:32:26

the form of minor should.

00:32:28--> 00:32:46

If you want to be an optimistic person, you have to watch this your language. I said today language is the dress of felt. You have to watch your language. Make sure that you say the good words. Don't say negative words. What the Navy Sallam said,

00:32:48--> 00:32:58

say good or remain silent. That's true. So don't use don't use negative words. Don't use evil words. Don't use strong words.

00:32:59--> 00:33:15

Use always positive good words. If you want to be an optimistic and this is something I said because people think optimism is being unrealistic, no optimism It is based on being realistic, be realistic.

00:33:17--> 00:34:04

And the more you know the live the nature of this life. It should help you to be more even realist. For instance, you know that there is no life without challenges without calamities and being realistic. But also I know that there is exists, there is solutions. I know that there's so many some of you said Jeff, you say that because you're like Mashallah, maybe having a easy life, but you don't know what I go through. You don't know how many problems I have home, at my house, at my country, bla bla bla, you know what all of us have, every one of us has own problems. There is no one here in this setting can claim that you know what, everything is just perfect for me. Everybody

00:34:04--> 00:34:05

has on struggle.

00:34:07--> 00:34:18

But I am 100% positive and 100% sure that there is so many problems out there. But also I'm 100% positive ensure that there are so many solutions out there

00:34:20--> 00:34:39

as there is problem for solutions. Allah subhanaw taala just unfair. And that part of being realistic that as you know there is a problems you know, as I said today, man's and alarming da da da da every disease Allah provide a cure for a cure for it.

00:34:41--> 00:34:43

If you want to be an aerialist,

00:34:44--> 00:34:48

an optimistic person, you need to learn how to discover you.

00:34:52--> 00:34:56

You need to learn how to discovery before you discover anything else on this world

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

will lie and that is so much a new

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

So much in you, but unfortunately untapped.

00:35:04--> 00:35:15

There are so many of us, so many of us will live and will die. And we did not even use 50% of the talents that Allah has given us.

00:35:16--> 00:35:35

Why are you still young, so many fewer. There's so much there's so much talents you have just discovered data. Use it, utilize it, over talents that you have, it's a gift to you. What do you do with it? It is your gift back to Allah subhana wa tada

00:35:38--> 00:35:47

I always say every one of us is gifted, but the different the different that so many I know in life, they never opened their package yet.

00:35:48--> 00:35:49

Still.

00:35:52--> 00:36:04

Make sure if you want to be an optimistic person, make sure you discover yourself discover the talent that you have. Allah subhanaw taala said wahoo one lady Gianna kumana amo

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

bokun phone

00:36:10--> 00:36:12

Leah boo acun female

00:36:15--> 00:36:16

a lot put you through test

00:36:17--> 00:36:21

to see if you're going to utilize us what Allah has given you.

00:36:22--> 00:36:28

Allah subhana wa tada told us that we all came out of your mother. No nothing.

00:36:29--> 00:36:39

Nobody No, no nothing. You know you and Bill Buhari Rahim Allah Shafi Rahim Allah wa hanifa Emma Hala Abu Bakr Sunday

00:36:41--> 00:36:51

we are all equal the way we came out of your our mothers. Do you think Buhari Rahim Allah came out of his mother and instead of saying what saint

00:36:55--> 00:36:59

or a chef he came out of his mother saying masala no fat Well,

00:37:00--> 00:37:03

no, he's like he was maybe inclined.

00:37:05--> 00:37:15

But the different, the impatient, the different, that they have high goals, the different than the determined to discover every talent that Allah has given them

00:37:16--> 00:37:17

and utilize it.

00:37:19--> 00:37:29

You know, there is a great king in Islam, one of the greatest King ever one of the greatest sulphonic ever, this Muslim history known his name, and he's a companion more

00:37:30--> 00:37:30

and

00:37:32--> 00:37:37

more are going to be soufiane was walking with his mother one day, your kid

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

and a man

00:37:41--> 00:38:18

was sitting around the cabin. And he said to the mother, your kid looks so smart, so intelligent, make sure that you don't let him disfigure himself. Because in the Arab culture at that time, you know, to be a small pond to be king to be great to be respected. You have to have a good feature in your body. Okay, so see, see, make sure that you don't make a scarf or something like disfigured himself. So keep your knees take good care of him. Because I think this boy grow up, he will rule the earth.

00:38:19--> 00:38:21

He will be the ruler of there. You know what the mother said?

00:38:23--> 00:38:24

She said harbor hustle.

00:38:26--> 00:38:27

In America.

00:38:28--> 00:38:33

What is such a loser boy, if he's only going to rule the error,

00:38:34--> 00:38:38

only to rule there that's a loser boy. I want him to rule the world.

00:38:41--> 00:38:49

Because she knows that she can use if you will able to utilize all the talent that the Lord giving you worldwide there is nothing can stop you.

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

You have to find out

00:38:54--> 00:38:57

what is so unique about yourself.

00:38:58--> 00:39:01

Every one of us is unique in his own way.

00:39:07--> 00:39:08

The next point was number nine.

00:39:11--> 00:39:13

You need to learn how to be patient.

00:39:16--> 00:39:19

optimistic pure people are very patient people.

00:39:20--> 00:39:47

And somehow Subbu Sterling, the brothers earlier it will pay him Rahim Allah said a beautiful Jim about the meaning of patient. So many times when we think of being patient, you think of you being passive, do nothing. But actually a subject is not being passive. You know, a solver it means you ability to adjust to the new situation that you're in,

00:39:48--> 00:39:48

and life.

00:39:49--> 00:39:55

Your ability to adjust to the new situation in life. That's what being patient is a sub.

00:39:57--> 00:40:00

So being patient is one of the elements

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

That allowed you to be an optimistic person.

00:40:08--> 00:40:13

If you want to be an optimistic person, make sure that you full of enthusiasm

00:40:15--> 00:40:29

for excitement. You need to learn how to excite yourself, you like, I'm gonna do this, I'm gonna pass this test, I'm going to be an A students, I'm going to discover this, I'm going to invent that I'm going to do this, be excited about the thing that you do.

00:40:30--> 00:40:40

Be excited about your future, be excited about your career, be excited about the path that you have chosen. Don't take things being cold. That's not let's not

00:40:42--> 00:40:54

be excited and full of interest and enthusiasm. It's going to fire yourself up from one time to another See, you keep always basically looking forward to improve your self.

00:41:01--> 00:41:06

Finally, I would like to say or two points number 11.

00:41:09--> 00:41:11

optimism is

00:41:12--> 00:41:14

a contagious attitude.

00:41:15--> 00:41:23

You only hang out with people who are optimistic, they will make you an optimistic person. You hang out with a bunch of loser, they can make you a loser.

00:41:24--> 00:41:33

You go to your friends and said, Hey, I have this new ideas. Yeah, you think yourself what you're gonna invent another Facebook?

00:41:35--> 00:41:39

Yeah, sure. I mean, this the last person is going to be hanging out with.

00:41:42--> 00:41:48

You need to be around people who will inspire you, will help you to improve yourself.

00:41:49--> 00:42:03

So make sure you understand this concept. If you around people always pop negative view or be negative like them. If you hang around, people will always criticize or what you can do is criticize, you cannot build anything anymore.

00:42:04--> 00:42:07

So make sure that you know this fact.

00:42:10--> 00:42:13

Especially if that person is the closest person to you to your spouse.

00:42:15--> 00:42:23

That's something you should carefully choose your future spouse to be someone who would help you to grow, not to bring you down.

00:42:24--> 00:42:26

Unfortunately, some parents even have this problem.

00:42:27--> 00:42:32

You go to your dad to mother tell them you don't have this idea, son, please don't.

00:42:34--> 00:42:48

You know, try to limit. They don't despite being realistic is good, but also not to put people down. You do need you do need this kind of people around you too, because they're not allowed you to grow.

00:42:49--> 00:42:50

Finally,

00:42:51--> 00:42:53

the last point which is 12.

00:42:56--> 00:42:58

optimism is completely based

00:43:00--> 00:43:01

on personal vulnerability

00:43:02--> 00:43:08

that you always view a loss as something positive. You always expect good from Allah.

00:43:09--> 00:43:24

Allah Allah said, and he said, an industry MTB I'll be always there meeting my servants expectation. You expect good through me that really gonna get you expect that you're gonna get.

00:43:26--> 00:43:29

So it is about how much you know Allah.

00:43:31--> 00:43:36

Well, if you study a lot of names and attributes, you will not arrive to any conclusion but

00:43:37--> 00:43:46

the to someone that you really can trust. Someone that you really loves you, someone who really cares about you. You know, one of our last names is

00:43:48--> 00:43:52

you know what that means and movement. It means led men were

00:43:53--> 00:43:54

men who

00:43:55--> 00:43:57

were men when a bad mental.

00:44:00--> 00:44:03

In moment, it means that the servant is creation.

00:44:04--> 00:44:15

always feel safe, that he will never forsake them. He will never disappoint them. He will never let them down. He will never be against them.

00:44:18--> 00:44:30

It was Canada Allah. He doesn't ever enjoy making us suffer. But Allah subhanaw taala is wise. As he said early this morning, he has his own way of doing things and putting things together.

00:44:34--> 00:45:00

There's so much out there waiting for you. If you if you go to life, walk, go to your apartment or your room tonight and go tomorrow to your to school and to your life. While this is something you have planted inside your heart, in your mind, that I'm going to be a positive. I'm going to be an optimistic person. I'm going to be like Mohammed

00:45:00--> 00:45:22

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam always seek goods and others always invest in the goods that in this life, I guarantee you, you will be completely different person and you will be able to make a change and other people's life and other people's life but all what it needs it carriage, it needs determination, it need that you will stay the course

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

you know

00:45:26--> 00:45:44

the person cannot discover new options unless you lose the attorney unless you have the courage to lose sight of the show. Otherwise, you're all staying the show if you have the courage to go follow and to lose sight of the shark that when you discover new places in the world.

00:45:48--> 00:45:56

So I hope that inshallah my words it will encourage us to improve ourselves into

00:45:58--> 00:46:23

Kobi Mohammed salah and insulin in this character in this article, Mohammed Salim is not only a role model in the way we pray, but also his role model for us in the way we behave, and the way we live our life. Thank you very much for coming tonight. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to reward your tremendously and I will ask your permission shalders. I wouldn't take any questions we're going to pray in sha Allah. And

00:46:25--> 00:46:40

the reason because I have to still drive two hours and have another program tomorrow morning in sha Allah tala. So it was my pleasure. And I hope of this weekend some of you can join us in the course it will be my pleasure to see you again. Salalah salon and

00:46:41--> 00:47:26

I also like to say that one of the way I don't come to this part of the word often Yeah, and he but today with this social media, it will be always a great chance to keep in touch with each others and the something I would love to say that time that I've been active on was I meet people like you keep in touch in sha Allah through the Facebook or Twitter you know, that's something we can keep in touch with it and this is Neverland and Allah subhanaw taala that you've given us this, to keep that communication and going, inshallah to Allah so if you're interested, you always can go to my Facebook fan, I have a like a fan page where as I always share back and forth. I answer people

00:47:26--> 00:47:33

questions, my Twitter's only, which is Willie Kay bassoon. Charlottetown thank you very much Somali for hematoma.

00:47:39--> 00:47:52

It's like knowledge, knowledge, you don't just born yeah and knowledgeable person, you have to acquire the knowledge. And same thing with character, you have to build your character, you have to build your character.

00:47:53--> 00:48:09

So how can we build that character? How can we became an optimistic people, optimism, optimism, it is simple optimism It is to be able to see all those opportunities in your difficulties.

00:48:10--> 00:48:50

Opportunity, you see all those opportunities and your difficulties versus pessimism. The person this person is the one who always see difficulties in his or her opportunities. Every time I give them an opportunity, they see difficulties in it. Anytime you see that, that's a pessimist person. And there is so many of them around Allah subhanaw taala How can you became an optimistic person, I have few points, I want to share it with you. And I will make sure that these are very practical points, that you can start from now working on it in yourself.

00:48:51--> 00:48:52

Number one,

00:48:53--> 00:49:15

in order for you to have an optimistic person, you need to understand the right understanding of the concept of other alpha, which is the predestined because if you don't understand this concept, clearly, you it's very hard for you to be an optimist. And part there's two big subjects something I will be teaching shall have this coming weekend

00:49:16--> 00:50:00

in a matter of class, but what concern me in this particular topic, which is related to optimism, to know one thing, that Allah Subhana, Allah put a rule in this dunya, which we call it, a spa and suddenly back to an attack. In order for you to have the results you have to take the necessarily means almost wanting to make this dunya like this. It's like he is engineers, and you study engineering. It's one plus one equals two, you do this process, you get this results vertically. That's the system that Allah put it in the slide that builds a sense of optimism. So I know if I do 123 that will lead to that result. If I don't

00:50:00--> 00:50:43

Do this I'm not gonna take that resolved. That's how I build that system. That's part of that Allah subhanaw taala didn't make things based, no system, no everything on this earth, everything happening to us it there is a system for it, you can see it, you can see the pattern of it, you can know that if you do 123 that means you deserve gender, if you do 123 it is or how far if you do this, you'll be happy, you will be successful. And when Allah subhanaw taala decrees something upon you, because of reasons he did it this way, because this is the perfect way to do it. Because this is the best way to do this the right formula for it for it. One also thing that helped me to

00:50:44--> 00:51:25

understand the concept of a paddle, make you an optimistic person to know that we have a free will. We're not like some people believe human beings have no worries at all. When if you have no Well, you will never be an optimistic person. You have a Free Will you have a free choice. And Allah subhanho wa Taala out of His justice, that he loves you to choose your action, and he will hold you accountable for it in the Day of Judgment, and he will hold you accountable for it in the Day of Judgment, but you have the freedom to make your choices. Make your choices. So it's up to you what you want to do. It's up to you to be an optimistic person or passings, it's up to you to choose how

00:51:25--> 00:51:57

you react to certain things that happen to you in your life in your life. We might not be able to change the direction of the wind when we are sailing. But always we can adjust our sailing, to sell and to go to new destination in life, you always have the choice to make a new start to make a new beginning to start over again. That's That's the power of the colossal panic Allah have given to human beings over angels, for example.

00:51:59--> 00:52:03

Number two, the second point that tells me to be an optimistic person,

00:52:04--> 00:52:05

which is

00:52:06--> 00:52:11

as interesting, it's one thing that make you an optimistic person, your appearance,

00:52:12--> 00:52:35

how you carry yourself. However, it has a huge impact on you. Modern psychologists in all psychology and you study old theories, they always say the old saying, Let me state the new one, the new ones. The new studies agree that our physiology impact our psychology, not the other way around.

00:52:37--> 00:53:24

All the new modern studies agree on that, that our physiology impact our psychology, the way you carry yourself, it will affect your mood will affect the way you think. SubhanAllah and this is something that Islam took great care of it. Why do you think Islam speak a lot about you being clean? You look neat? why our messages look nice, what our city should be clean our street should be looks nice. Why does that speak about and Nevada that you the moment it shouldn't be always clean? It is because when you like that you act upon this Subhanallah studying the history of African American in America when they brought the slave. They were not slave in Africa. Some of them were

00:53:24--> 00:54:09

princes. There is a new movie called The slave Prince. I don't know if you saw this movie or not. It's a movie just recently came up. Speaking about a Muslim Prince was taken from West Africa as a slave to America. And later on Abraham Lincoln freed him and give him his title back. Give him his title. It's a beautiful story. Very inspiring story. But one of the things that is so interesting about this dark era in the history of America, how the treating slave, the slavery, that's the slave masters, one of the things we used to do, slaves are not allowed to take a shower for a week. They're not allowed to wear good clothes. They know why you think they do that. To break their

00:54:09--> 00:54:30

spirit to make them act like animals, not like human being it is because the outside impact the inside the outside impact the inside. So if you want to be an optimistic person, you have to look at your appearance. Allah subhanaw taala when he described the believers, what a burger man in

00:54:32--> 00:54:37

the servant of man, the one who What do you expect next? Can I come?

00:54:39--> 00:54:52

The one who pray? No, the one who fast? No, the one who donate No. Has nothing to do with the one book who have a certain article effect No. And let the name shoe

00:54:54--> 00:54:59

speak about the appearance, the way they talk, the way you walk. Because the

00:55:00--> 00:55:08

Whether you walk it will impact the way you behave. Do you walk with arrogance? Do you walk like dead

00:55:09--> 00:55:15

man walking like you know, dragging his feet and like you know then

00:55:17--> 00:55:18

straighten up

00:55:19--> 00:55:36

culatta metallian Edina don't make our legend dead. standout that's why in the piece of Solomon he stand when you watch his back straight, jab rodella and said sometimes we we kind of run out of breath just to catch up with the prophet SAW Salah

00:55:38--> 00:55:58

when he walked he doesn't drag his feet like dead person he walked with walk full of energy, full of enthusiasm. That's the walk that you want to see our Muslim brother and sister walk with confidence. You might even be a you might not be a king, have some fun, but you can walk like one

00:55:59--> 00:56:21

dog with arrogant walk with high self esteem with confidence that will make you believe it or not an optimistic person, raise your hand up and don't walk with like somebody who is sick or something like that. The style is the image of the character. Your style is the image of your character. That's why I

00:56:23--> 00:57:06

used to love to dress in the nice clothes. I'm not talking about to be too expensive, but it's been nice. Something you care about. You care about your appearance, and maybe some saw a man his old and his his white his beard is white and it's missing his beard snazzy in Ibiza for them said two things he said when one okay to con men clan Allahu schaffen you krim if you want to grow a beard take care of it. Take good care of if you want to grow hair take good care of her it's not like some drone here some gone there you know No, you have to look nice that's why you trim your mustache you don't let your mustache eat with you. Okay, it is the appearance the look

00:57:07--> 00:57:13

also in the piece he said dye your hair don't don't don't keep it white like that diet

00:57:14--> 00:57:16

because it was so missive so

00:57:19--> 00:57:21

he's like like a cloud

00:57:25--> 00:57:48

so this is one thing you need to work to work to work on it. Make sure that you have a good style even your new young because that will build your character will make you have confidence in yourself. And that's what will build also the sense of optimism. Number three just do with the appearance but I put it by itself smiling

00:57:50--> 00:58:02

smile You know what I always notice this whenever I go to country visit the community visitor master I see how many people smile to me when I'm a stranger

00:58:03--> 00:58:17

in a smile is such a beautiful things when light brothers sisters. Yeah, and your teeth is not our you can smile. You can show it It's okay. You know smile. Smiling is such a beautiful thing.

00:58:18--> 00:58:54

If you Yeah, and you find your friend, your colleagues, with without smile, give him one of yours. And he will have it immediately. Just let sprint smile in Nabi sallallahu, wasallam, Isha jabber, so many so many companions said, Our motto is to never be a source of motivation. I never jabber said I never met an ambitious alum. Unless I found him smile. Another one said every time I saw the person my life he was smile. Can anybody say that about you?

00:58:55--> 00:59:20

can even sit you know, every time I saw this person, every time I roll my eyes, I lay my eyes on them on him or her she was smiling. And his wife saying smiling because Mashallah some of us always smile with their friends outside, but when you go home, okay, you know, completely different attitude. But as you said, No, he's smiling inside the house and outside the house.

00:59:22--> 00:59:26

You know, there is some of you, I don't know, did you lose your smile?

00:59:27--> 00:59:37

If you lost your smile, I have a good news for you. Your smile didn't go anywhere, just right under your nose. Just fear see you smiling. So

00:59:38--> 00:59:44

smiling is not going to make other feels good. It's going to make you feel good.

00:59:45--> 00:59:56

Smile, give a sense of confidence, a sense of happiness, sense of acceptance to yourself first. And that's the basis of the basis of optimism.

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

Number four

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

You will not be an optimistic person in life. Make sure that you fill your heart with goodness for others. Don't fill your heart with hate, jealousy, envy towards others. Your heart is like a cup. Whatever you're going to fill it up with, it's going to be filled up. There is no more space. That's the amount of any emptiness inside that you are you filled it up with good it will it will be only producing good.

01:00:30--> 01:00:32

Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran.

01:00:34--> 01:00:38

He Allah mila roofie pulu become

01:00:42--> 01:00:53

a pharmacy's in your heart goodness, he will give you a good news. He will give you good that's how it is. I was looking at our hearts.

01:00:55--> 01:01:07

This optimism it will never come from a heart filled with envy filled with jealousy filled with hate. Those people cannot be optimistic. They cannot be optimistic people.

01:01:10--> 01:01:11

Number five.

01:01:12--> 01:01:16

If you want to be an optimistic person learn to be positive thinker.

01:01:18--> 01:01:34

Be positive thinker. You know that is this farmer. He has two children he has Mashallah twins. But they are completely the opposite. One is a very optimistic person and the other person kit is the most awesome skins you can think of.

01:01:36--> 01:01:56

So he want to do an experiment and the kids so they bring a big huge box and their birthday gifts. big huge box for both of them. So the open the first part that the passengers kit, he opened it and he found inside this shiny beautiful bicycle.

01:01:57--> 01:02:08

beautiful red and shiny is very beautiful. And another train in a Thomas train if they have a train ferry to gifts visit birthday.

01:02:09--> 01:02:37

So immediately the kid said, Dad, Mom, why did you give me that gift for? You should give me only one now to I'm going to be confused which one I'm going to play with? That's going to make me feel bad. And you know what? Why would you give me a shiny bicycle for it's easy to scratch and its own scratch? It will be look it will look bad. And then now I can I have to worry about it more than enjoying and he made it the most miserable thing ever happened to

01:02:40--> 01:02:43

so the other kids open the box to big one.

01:02:44--> 01:02:47

And all what he found manure.

01:02:49--> 01:02:50

Just the manure

01:02:51--> 01:02:53

and maybe a little bit.

01:02:55--> 01:03:08

Then he said that? He said what? He said Where did you hide the pony? You know the little horse? You hide it somewhere? I'm sure this just the introduction is positive thinker.

01:03:10--> 01:03:27

You know, where is the horse? Where did you hide the horse? Okay, so it's might be a positive thinker. Can you think positive? Why would you think always in a negative way? There is a hadith maybe some of you heard this hadith before.

01:03:28--> 01:04:12

But I'm not sure if you ever thought about it this way. There is a very famous Hadith. And Nebuchadnezzar themselves. That is three people entered a cave, and a huge rock came and block the exit. So each one of them starts asking Allah with one of his good deeds. One of them said, Yeah, Allah, I used to have a female cousin. And I like those girls so much. And so many times I tried to seduce her to seduce her, but she refuse good to him. One day she came to me and she asked for money. I asked her for to give me herself first. And when I was very close to that, she told me why you didn't marry me. If you want me so bad like that. Just marry. And Hello. Why would you do that?

01:04:12--> 01:04:14

He said, I gave her the money and I let her go.

01:04:16--> 01:04:19

I have a question. When you hear this story.

01:04:21--> 01:04:52

Most of us when we have this story, what we will be focusing on? Wow, our bad guy decide he's taking advantage of his cousin. When she needs money he took advantage. See, we think about the negative part of the story. But Mohammed Salah Solomon, he mentioned the story. He was not even talking about this at all. Actually, the main point from the story is the last portion that he lets her go. So the prophets of Salaam only forecast in the positive part of the story

01:04:53--> 01:04:58

which is him in the end, realizing that this is not noble thing to do, and he let her go

01:05:00--> 01:05:03

How positive he is sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

01:05:05--> 01:05:25

It may be so solemn look at the Society of Mecca. Can you think what do you think of that time? what they do? They bury their dogs some of them bury their their daughters alive. They steal they fight for over nothing. They fought 40 years to tribes in Arabia 40 years of bloody war for 40 years why over a camel

01:05:27--> 01:05:36

40 years over a camel because the camel when the race so somebody else came and kill the camel 40 years of bloody war.

01:05:37--> 01:05:55

ignorant. They make the walk around the cabin news. Nobody wear clothes when they make off how ignorant this could be how ignorant people you can think of. And you can think of so many things like this. But listen to it the process of himself kind of in

01:05:56--> 01:06:07

a 10 minute macadam at UCLA, I came to complete the good manners that you have. He didn't look at the society as something Doom something bad something wrong.

01:06:09--> 01:06:26

You know, one of the beautiful things I have to say, since I land in this country in here in Malaysia, one of the best thing I ever noticed that this positive way. So many people talk about I saw the local that people from Malaysia, they always talk about the great things that this country have.

01:06:27--> 01:07:05

They talk about how Mashallah beautiful masters we have how very good How great freedom that we have is it how advanced technology and never heard anyone say or like every country, I go to it, oh, we have this, we have this and every contract its own problem, like maybe something had armor halaal not allowed practices, wrong practice. But when you go to many countries, all what the people of that country focus on that wrong practices in the society. But since they landed here, I noticed that everybody pointed out the positive. And that's why this country going forward. Because they're not focusing on these little things.

01:07:08--> 01:07:33

And this is an a key point in success in life. If you want to be an optimistic person, you need to learn how to be positive thinker. You think about the positive thing, you focus on the positive things, and maybe some allow anyone to sell themselves and the Muslim there is a group of people will intergender not because the fast so much not because they pray so much. No, but their heart, correct.

01:07:34--> 01:07:45

It's like the white birds, very doesn't know any bad or evil feelings, there are positive, they are positive.

01:07:47--> 01:07:59

When you look being positive, even when problems happen, even when when calamities strike, you think about it in a positive way. Think about it in a positive way. And then

01:08:00--> 01:08:05

a man was brought to the into the province of Southern drunk, completely wasted.

01:08:07--> 01:08:21

So in order to apply the punishment, so one person said that anahola Mela person all was the catching drunk, then individual Salam said, Don't do that. Don't say that.

01:08:22--> 01:08:23

Don't say that.

01:08:24--> 01:08:27

This man loves Allah and His messenger.

01:08:29--> 01:08:49

Yes, he's drinking. But he still have other good things in his heart. Yes, he's not the best Muslim in this area when it comes to drinking. He's weak when it comes to this. But there is another area he's so strong in it. And there is something good in his heart. And let me just tell him did not dis regard that positive thing that this person has?

01:08:50--> 01:08:57

Unfortunately, drinking is not something simple. It's a major sin. But still the process on said he loves align His Messenger.

01:08:58--> 01:09:16

A woman committed Zina, he still mentioned out the tills repentance is such great thing. She repented to Allah. He did not focus on the mistake Salalah Salah because he's an optimistic person. And optimistic people focus on the positive. Think of the positive.

01:09:20--> 01:09:42

When you look at the, as I said, the calamities that strike you in your life, you start thinking, what is the wisdom behind what's the benefit that I get out of it? Salah sometimes brother and sisters, sometimes our eyes need to be washed with our tears so we can see live more clearly.

01:09:44--> 01:09:46

We can see live brighter afterwards.

01:09:48--> 01:09:55

That tears that comes to you. It meant to wash your eyes and make it to your vision even stronger. Thinking in a positive manner is

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

also part of being passengers.

01:10:00--> 01:10:04

And the opposite of being positive being negative

01:10:05--> 01:10:13

to only point the wrong but also there's another aspect here with soup being superstitious,

01:10:14--> 01:10:47

being superstitious, you know, like people they are basic superstition with certain numbers. Like for example funny things even America you know we're on America like I always tell Americans you guys all say we're advanced with this, but you know they're they have very any belief to number 13 you will not find a bed at con number 13 in America like in hospital, you will not find a Florida called 13 and buildings you will not find a role in the airplane called 13.

01:10:49--> 01:10:59

Because the suspicious with this, they have this superstitions with this number. And some people they associate with so different somebody superstition with their mother in laws for example.

01:11:01--> 01:11:19

People have different things of think of it negative way some birds some colors, that Islam came to destroy that meaning numbers they don't have, you know, cannot be superstition with, with numbers with names with month was days with no.

01:11:21--> 01:11:25

It be called form we call it a papaya which is in the

01:11:27--> 01:11:29

form of minor ship.

01:11:31--> 01:12:01

If you want to be an optimistic person, you have to watch this your language. I said today language is the dress of felt. You have to watch your language. Make sure that you say the good words. Don't say negative words what the Navy Salam said hi and I will say good or remain silent. That's true. So don't use don't use negative words. Don't use evil words. Don't use strong words.

01:12:02--> 01:12:05

Use always positive good words.

01:12:06--> 01:12:19

If you want to be optimistic, and this is something I said because people think optimism is being unrealistic, no optimism It is based on being realistic, be realistic.

01:12:20--> 01:13:08

And the more you know the live the nature of this life. It should help you to be more even realist. For instance, you know that there is no life without challenges without calamities and being realistic. But also I know that there is exists, there is solutions. I know that there's so many some of you said Jeff, you say that because you're like Mashallah maybe having an easy life, but you don't know what I go through. You don't know how many problems I have home at my house at my country, bla bla bla you know what all of us have every one of us his own problems. There is no one here in this setting can claim that you know what, everything is just perfect for me, everybody has

01:13:08--> 01:13:09

on struggle.

01:13:10--> 01:13:21

But I'm I'm 100% positive and 100% sure that there are so many problems out there, but also 100% positive ensure that there are so many solutions out there

01:13:23--> 01:13:42

as there is problem for solutions. Allah subhanaw taala just unfair. And that part of being realistic that as you know there is a problems you know, there is solution as I said today manzanilla Hammond da da da da. every disease allowed provide a cure for a cure for it.

01:13:44--> 01:13:46

If you want to be an aerialist,

01:13:47--> 01:13:52

an optimistic person, you need to learn how to discover you

01:13:55--> 01:13:59

need to learn how to discovery before you discover anything else on this world

01:14:00--> 01:14:06

will lie and there is so much a new so much in you but unfortunately untapped.

01:14:07--> 01:14:18

There are so many of us, so many of us will live and we'll die and we did not even use 50% of the talents that Allah has given us.

01:14:20--> 01:14:39

Why are you still young, so many few years? There's so much there's so much talent you have just discovered tap it, use it utilize it over talents that you have, it's Allah His gift to you. What do you do with it? It is your gift back to Allah subhana wa tada

01:14:41--> 01:14:50

I always say every one of us is gifted, but the different the different that so many I know in life, they never opened their package yet.

01:14:51--> 01:14:52

Still.

01:14:55--> 01:14:59

Make sure if you want to be an optimistic person, make sure you discover yourself skills

01:15:00--> 01:15:00

With a ton of

01:15:01--> 01:15:07

Allah subhanaw taala said wahoo one lady Gianna, kumana amo.

01:15:13--> 01:15:15

Leah Beluga. confini

01:15:18--> 01:15:19

a lot of put you through tests

01:15:21--> 01:15:25

to see if you're going to utilize us what Allah has given you.

01:15:26--> 01:15:31

Allah subhana wa Taala told us that we all came out of your mother know nothing.

01:15:33--> 01:15:43

Nobody know nothing. You know you and Bill Buhari Rahim Allah Shafi Rahim Allah, Allah Allah Allah, Abu Bakr Sunday

01:15:44--> 01:15:54

we are all equal the way we came out of your our mothers. Do you think Buhari Rahim Allah came out of his mother and instead of saying what St.

01:15:58--> 01:16:01

Or a chef, he came out of his mother's saying masala? No.

01:16:04--> 01:16:06

No, he's like he was maybe I'm crying.

01:16:08--> 01:16:18

But the different, the impatient, the different, that they have high goals, the different than they are determined to discover every talent that Allah has given them

01:16:19--> 01:16:20

and utilize it.

01:16:22--> 01:16:33

You know, there is a great king in Islam, one of the greatest King ever one of the greatest cellphone ever, this Muslim history known his name, and he's a companion, more notably, Sophia

01:16:36--> 01:16:40

morakniv, Sophia was walking with his mother, one day, your kid

01:16:43--> 01:17:21

and a man was sitting around the cabin. And he said to the mother, your kid looks so smart, so intelligent, make sure that you don't let him disfigure himself. Because in the Arab culture at that time, you know, to be a salon to be king to be great to be respected. You have to have a good feature in your body. Okay, so CCC, make sure you don't make a scarf or something like disfigure himself. So keep your knees take good care of him. Because I think this boy grow up, he will rule the earth.

01:17:22--> 01:17:25

He will be the ruler of there. You know what the mother said.

01:17:26--> 01:17:27

She said harbor hustle.

01:17:29--> 01:17:29

In medical.

01:17:31--> 01:17:36

What is such a loser boy, if he's only going to rule the error,

01:17:37--> 01:17:42

only to go there. That's a loser boy. I want him to rule the world.

01:17:44--> 01:17:52

Because she knows that she can use if you will able to utilize all the talent that the Lord giving you worldwide It has nothing can stop you.

01:17:55--> 01:17:57

You have to find out

01:17:58--> 01:18:00

what is so unique about yourself.

01:18:01--> 01:18:04

All every one of us is unique in his own way.

01:18:10--> 01:18:12

The next point is number nine.

01:18:15--> 01:18:16

You need to learn how to be patient.

01:18:19--> 01:18:22

optimistic period people are very patient people.

01:18:23--> 01:18:50

And somehow Subbu Sterling, the brothers earlier it will pay him Rahim Allah said a beautiful, Jim about the meaning of patient. So many times when you think of being patient, you think you being passive, do nothing. But actually a subject is not being passive. You know, a subject it means you ability to adjust to the new situation that you're in,

01:18:51--> 01:18:51

and life,

01:18:53--> 01:18:58

your ability to adjust to the new situation in life. That's what being patient needs a sub.

01:19:00--> 01:19:08

So, being patient is one of the elements that allowed you to be an optimistic person.

01:19:11--> 01:19:16

If you want to be an optimistic person, make sure that you full of enthusiasm

01:19:18--> 01:19:32

for excitement. You need to learn how to excite yourself. You like this, I'm gonna do this, I'm going to pass this test. I'm going to be an ace students. I'm going to discover this I'm going to invent that I'm going to do this. Be excited about the thing that you do.

01:19:33--> 01:19:44

Be excited about your future. Be excited about your career. Be excited about the path that you have chosen. Don't take things being cold. That's not that's not gonna

01:19:45--> 01:19:57

be excited and full of interest and enthusiasm. It's going to fire yourself up from one time to another see you keep always basically looking forward to improve your self

01:20:05--> 01:20:10

Finally, I would like to say or two points number 11.

01:20:12--> 01:20:14

optimism is

01:20:15--> 01:20:17

a contagious attitude,

01:20:18--> 01:20:36

any hang out with people who are optimistic, they will make you an optimistic person, you hang out with a bunch of losers, they can make you a loser. You go to your friends and said, Hey, I have this new ideas. Yeah, you think yourself what you're going to invent another Facebook?

01:20:38--> 01:20:42

Sure, I mean, this the last person who want to be hanging out with

01:20:45--> 01:20:51

you need to be around people who will inspire you, will help you to improve yourself.

01:20:52--> 01:21:06

So make sure they understand this concept. If you are around people always pop negative, you will be negative like them. If you hang around, people will always criticize or what you can do is criticize, you cannot build anything anymore.

01:21:08--> 01:21:10

So make sure that you know this fact.

01:21:13--> 01:21:17

Especially if that person is the closest person to you to your spouse.

01:21:18--> 01:21:26

That's something you should carefully choose your future spouse to be someone who would help you to grow, not to bring you down.

01:21:27--> 01:21:30

Unfortunately, some parents even have this problem.

01:21:31--> 01:21:36

You go to your dad to mother tell them you don't have this idea, son, please don't.

01:21:37--> 01:21:51

You know, try to limit they don't despite being realistic is good, but also not to put people down. You do need you do need this kind of people around you too, because they're not allowed you to grow.

01:21:52--> 01:21:53

Finally,

01:21:55--> 01:21:56

the last point which is 12

01:21:59--> 01:22:02

optimism is completely based

01:22:03--> 01:22:04

on history not only will

01:22:05--> 01:22:27

that you always view a loss as something positive, you always expect the good from Allah Subhana Allah Allah said and he said and in the history of TB I'll be always there meeting my servants expectation. You expect good from me that really gonna get you expect that you're gonna get.

01:22:29--> 01:22:33

So it is about how much you know Alice Peridot.

01:22:34--> 01:22:39

Well, if you study a lot of names and attributes, you will not arrive to any conclusion but

01:22:40--> 01:22:50

that is someone that you really contrast. Some of the two really loves you, someone who really cares about you. You know, one of our last names is alignment.

01:22:51--> 01:23:00

You know what that means our movement. It means led men were a bad men who avoided we have men a bad Aminu.

01:23:02--> 01:23:06

Hold on a moment, it means that the servant his creation,

01:23:07--> 01:23:18

always feel safe. The team will never forsake them. He will never disappoint them. He will never let them down. He will never be against them.

01:23:21--> 01:23:33

Was Canada Allah, he doesn't ever enjoy making us suffer. But Allah subhanaw taala is wise. As he said earlier this morning, he has his own way of doing things and putting things together.

01:23:37--> 01:24:26

There's so much out there waiting for you. If you if you go to life, walk, go to your apartment or your room tonight and go tomorrow to your to school and to your life. While this is something you have planted inside your heart in your mind, that I'm going to be a positive I'm going to be an optimistic person I'm going to be like Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam always see good than others always invest in the good in this life. I guarantee you, you will be completely different person and you will be able to make a change and other people's life and other people's life. But all what it needs it carriage. It needs determination, it needs that you will stand the course.

01:24:27--> 01:24:28

You know

01:24:30--> 01:24:48

the person cannot discover new oceans unless you lose your enemy unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. Otherwise you're always staying the show. If you have the courage to go follow and to lose sight of the shore that when you discover new places in the world.

01:24:51--> 01:24:59

So I hope that inshallah my words it will encourage us to improve ourselves and to

01:25:01--> 01:25:27
