They want to keep up with the Patel's or the Ibrahim families, they want to keep looking over the fence. Well, what do they have? And why don't I have it? How can they have an easier life than I do? How come they get better grades? How come? How come? How come? How come? How

come their parents seem to do this for them. And what you don't know is what you don't see. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has caused for us to be like chameleons, where we shift and hide things from each other. And you may look at a person thinking that they are in the most happy state of mind, and comfort and SubhanAllah. They can walk into any store buy anything, they have fame and fortune and fashion and everything is at their disposal. And it seems like the world is in their hand.

don't ever judge another person and another book by its cover. Don't ever look at someone having something in one aspect of their life and assuming that the rest of everything and that which is behind closed doors is good. rather focus on yourself. appreciate what you have, enjoy the contentment that Allah has given you. And what you're missing out on know that there are other things that you're not appreciating. And when you look towards others with that envy, covetousness jealousy, you're actually showing a loss of Hannah to Allah, you're not appreciative of what he's giving you, which is a transgression against your belief in faith. And that shows that your belief

in others has diminished, that Allah gives good and evil to whom He wills, how he wills, that the major choices in your life are not in your hand and destiny. You couldn't choose what era you would be born in what color your skin would be, what family style you would have, what nationality you would be born into. None of those decisions were given to you but you're asked to make the best of your life according to your own a bay away and ability not by living somebody else's life and dreaming of it.

don't let your eyes look towards what splendor of a flower in bloom we've given to them. It's like a flower it's bloom. But what happens to it a day you're too when a week and it whittles away and it's leaves fall and it's done and it's dust. It was just blooming fragrant for a few little moments. Nobody's life is ever happy, complete and full of satisfaction all the time. And for you to assume that everybody has what you don't have and you want what they have. And you've shown contempt to Allah by not appreciating the blessing you have. Be prepared that Allah may test you by removing the goodness from your life that you're underestimated. May Allah protect you and I from this don't

00:03:55--> 00:04:09

transgress against the boundaries of Allah by being a person who covets and is jealous of the achievements, successes and possessions of others. May Allah protect us from this Allahumma amin
