How you speak to yourself in your mind in your heart matters.

00:00:16--> 00:00:58

Believing in yourself is a very important concept for us as Muslims. In fact, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam first was given the Quran and gibreel arrived in the mountain of Knorr and in the cave of her art, and if correct this mural became lovey Halak was revealed to the prophets I seldom recite in the name of your Lord who created all things. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was worried, he was stressed, he wasn't sure if he can fulfill this great task, and he came to his wife Khadija or the Allahu Allah and told her, told her what happened. And she began to remind him of the importance of believing in himself and that he can fulfill this message. She

00:00:58--> 00:01:42

said in the law hilarya So okay, ever that our our Lord will never put any harm upon you. Because you're a good person. You do this and this and this, you feed the poor, you bring peace between warring factions, you're a good man. Yeah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being able to inspire within yourself, ask Allah for assistance as Musa alayhis salaam, when Allah spoke to him on the Mount of turrisi na, and Allah said to him, I am your Lord, go to Pharaoh, the first door moves that makes this color rubbish rally, Saturday, hawala opened my heart, meaning allow me to believe in myself, put in myself self confidence, because how you speak to yourself, what you say to

00:01:42--> 00:02:25

yourself, really matters, what you say to yourself, when other people around you really matters, it gives you the ability to have a greater self esteem, self confidence, to carry yourself in a more positive way to be able to face challenges and be able to cross through them that you recognize that no one is to be feared more than Allah, no one is to be loved more than Allah, and that whatever happens will happen with the knowledge of Allah Subhana, WA, into Adam. So three things that become really important as you speak to yourself, in your mind. Have you ever had that moment where you know, you might have had an argument with someone, and after the arguments done, and they left, you

00:02:25--> 00:03:06

say to yourself, you know, I should have said, and then it comes to you what you should? Well, if I had said that, it would have you know, put an end to it. So panela, that inner dialogue of hyper correction, where you correct that what you're going to do in the future. So it's almost as if you say, Well, if this ever happens, again, this argument happens. Again, I know what I'm going to say I know how to respond. That's a very important learning technique and learning tool for you to use in your life. So when you make a mistake, inside yourself, have that very first important step of correcting your behavior, hyper correction, that say, Hey, I know I did this, but I shouldn't do it.

00:03:06--> 00:03:48

And I'm going to not do this, again, that you make a promise within your heart, that this isn't something that I'm going to do. In fact, Allah gives us the example of Prophet Ibrahim in the Quran, when his father says, come and worship these idols with us for another another autumn fitting new job, he looked up into the heavens, and he said, No, I don't want to do this color in the Supreme, I'm not feeling well that I'm not going to go out with you, he avoided the mistake of that shirak. And he stayed home, right? So Allah Subhana, Allah, you know, he thought of how to avoid it, he talked himself through it, it's important for you to talk to yourself after a mistake to help you

00:03:48--> 00:04:31

recover from it. Number two, from the important things about your inner dialogue is believe you can if if in your heart, you say I can, then you'll have a chance at achieving it, you might not achieve it. But if you already have decided, if you've already said inside yourself, I can't do this, then there's no reason to even try. The reason is because if you've already defeated yourself, that thing is going to defeat you. You have to always approach things with that I can attitude. And number three is to have a growth mindset that whatever stumbles, whatever mistakes, whatever scenes, whatever rights and wrongs that I've done, all of it is a part of the story of my life. And I'm

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

growing as a result of it, that whatever I did is a mistake. I'm going to correct it and I'm going to grow because of it. And if I didn't, you know, learn how to do it and the first time the second time, the third time, even if it's 100 times, I will eventually get there. How you speak to yourself matters and how you speak to yourself negatively matters. So if you say, hey, nobody's gonna find out. I'm just going to do it. Nobody can see me. I'm going to take

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

If you speak to yourself negatively, it's what encourages you to do the wrong. Try to restrict that negative discussion. Hearing that discussion is not simply the shape on but it is in fact the inclination and the desire of your soul to do haraam. Nala warns us in the horror and in the neffs you're inside that amount of time bisou it can push you towards doing bad things. If you don't counter it and if you don't speak against it, and if you don't say oh Billahi min ash shaytani r Rajim Allah Houma. I'm aina Allah and fusina Allah help us against the inner desire that inner discussions the inner dialogue that we have with ourselves helped me against myself Oh Allah, that I

00:05:49--> 00:06:00

can stay away from what is haram? Repeat that with me. Allahumma aina Allah and fusina Allah help us against ourselves, Allah on me
