Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah All Glory be to Allah who raised the heavens and created the creation. He spread for the earth and beautified it with vegetation and gave us the cycle of the night and day in perfect alternation. He sent down to us the Koran as his speech and revelation and sent to us a prophet in whose belief is our salvation. It is his religion that unites all of mankind the black and white without discrimination. So it is a law and a law alone we worship and bow our heads to in frustration, realize dear Muslims that Allah subhana wa tada has commanded us to be conscious of him. When he says in the Koran Yeah, you have Latina amanu top Allahu Akbar to call it a one or two

00:04:42 --> 00:04:57

mu tuna Illa one two Muslim one. Dear Muslims, we are all aware in this era of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he was doing the hedgerow from Mecca to Medina and they took shelter in Hadith

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

that the Quran

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

We're so close to finding Abu Bakar and the Prophet sallallahu. Either he was seldom so much so that Abu Bakar himself began trembling, and he whispered to the prophets of Allahu Allah. He was sending me out of Sula, la they are so close. I can see their feet. If they only look down they will see us and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Yeah, abubaker malvan nuca with naygn Allahu salifu Houma. aboubaker What do you think of two people, the third of whom is Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that calmness, the confidence, the optimism calmed Abu Bakar down when they had no army and they had no help other than Allah subhana wa Tada. This is but one indication of a very

00:05:50 --> 00:06:44

important concept in the life of every believer, and that is to have good thoughts of a law and to think the best of the plan of a law. To be optimistic in Arabic have fierceness one to think the best thoughts of a law. This is a part and parcel of our Eamon the believer only thinks good of a law. The believer does not allow his mind to wander to negative thoughts to evil thoughts. The believer focuses on the positive and thinks the best thoughts of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith in Buddhahood, that to have good thoughts of a law, in the first no one Billa it is of the perfection of worshiping a law. You want to worship

00:06:44 --> 00:07:25

Allah you began with the mind you began with your thoughts. You begin with where your Westwater goes, you want to worship Allah before you look at your actions. You look at your heart and you look at your mind. So how do you perfect your worship of a law? You have good thoughts about Allah subhana wa tada and about the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the famous Hadith reported in behati, and Muslim, the highest level of Hadith. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a law says, so this is a heavy Pudsey that is motherfuck at the highest level, it is the most blessing and the most authentic. What did Allah say, in this idea of Pudsey, honor in the one near Abitibi, I

00:07:25 --> 00:08:18

am, as my servant thinks, I am, I am, as my servant thinks I am. So whoever thinks good thoughts, will find the realization of those good thoughts. And whoever thinks bad thoughts will find the realization of that bad thought as well. What does all of this mean dear Muslims, to summarize, because time is always limited, I will remind ourselves of four especially specific occasions that we should think positive thoughts. Number one, when we are faced with a calamity, when we're trapped against a wall, when it looks like all the doors have been shut, when we are facing anxiety, stress, grief, worries, our thoughts should think positive thoughts, we should say, Allah will take care of

00:08:18 --> 00:09:07

this, we should think Allah will solve my problems we should have who snuck one in Allah subhana wa Tada. Just like our Prophet sallallahu he was send them did when he was trapped in the cave of foad, when there was no way out except for the way of a law, just like the Prophet yaku when he is waiting 2030 years for use of Not a single word of use of and at the end, he says to his sons, oh, my children, go forth in the land and try to find use of and do not give up hope of the help of Allah. For nobody gives up hope of the help of a law except those that have lost everything. He lost his son, he didn't lose hope in a law and he said, a law will bring us back to me law, a assumere wrote

00:09:07 --> 00:09:51

a law don't give up hope of the help of a law a law will help us so whatever your situation, whether it is economic problem, you're hunting for a job, you're in debt, you have financial issue, whether it is a family problem spouse issue, whether it is your son or daughter, whether it is a sickness, whether it is this global plague and pandemic, we think the best thoughts insha Allah soon there will be a cure to this virus, inshallah. Soon we'll get the antidote. inshallah, within this year, everything will be back to normal. We have positive thoughts of any negative situation and we assume the best that Allah will take care of it. Number two, when we have positive thoughts, whenever we

00:09:51 --> 00:09:59

ask Allah for his forgiveness, when we want is the father and mother Farah, when we want Allah's forgiveness, we always have positive

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

Have a law for indeed a law forgives all sins. And the Hadith tells us that the one who gives up hope of Allah mercy has committed the bigger sin than any sin he might have done. To think that Allah will not forgive you is a bigger sin than anything you could possibly have done. So we never give up hope of Allah's mercy, a less forgiveness. Number three, what do we make dua to Allah. We should have your clean that Allah will answer our Torah. Audra la hawan Tom mukhi Nuna bill, a Java make dua to Allah and you have your theme that Allah will give you what you want, or something better than that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah is so generous, that when his

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

servants raise his hands to Allah, Allah is too shy, to allow that hand to come back down without putting something in it. This is a loss of Allah with Allah. Allah is Karim. Allah is Karim and he shall give and give and give. So whenever you raise your hands to Allah for anything, have good thoughts, that Allah will give me what I'm asking, or something better that I don't know. And no one knows, but he shall give me something. So we have good thoughts of a law when we make do and then the final point in time is limited. I cannot go on the final point that a person was on his deathbed, and the Prophet system asked him what is your state of mind? What do you think? And he

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

said, yada Sula, law, I am worried for my sins, but I'm hopeful I'm hopeful I have good expectations that allow shall forgive me. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Never do these emotions combined at this point in time, except that Allah shall fulfill that good attitude. In other words, number four, at the time of death, it is so important that we have good thoughts of a law that we have good thoughts of Allah subhana wa Taala our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Let none of you die, except that you have the best thoughts about a law that Allah shall forgive your sins and Allah shall give you good for what you have done. So these are the four occasions and there are more than

00:12:15 --> 00:12:48

these number one at times of calamity any time of grief and stress. Number two, when we ask for a loss, forgiveness number three when we make dua and number four at the time of death, especially in these times, let us be optimistic. Let us have good thoughts of Allah subhana wa Tada. Let us put our trust in Allah that Allah subhana wa tada will give us better than our thoughts of Him. May Allah azza wa jal bless me and you within through the Quran, and may make us of those who is verses they understand and applies halal and haram throughout our lifespan. I asked God's forgiveness years we'll ask him for years the food and the rock man

00:12:56 --> 00:13:43

Alhamdulillah helwa hadn't had a summit la de la mirada mula William yaku cufon. ahead, we're about to do. One of the most beautiful things of our faith is that we are commanded by our Prophet sallallahu. Either he was setting them to read in positive omens to everything around us. In a hadith in Sahih Bukhari our prophets Allah Allahu Allah, he was seldom seen said, There is no such thing as negative omens pause your What does that mean? You know, in every society, every culture, there's something called Bad luck. If the catch crosses is bad luck, if you break glasses, bad luck, if this happens is bad luck, our Shetty I came to eliminate these mythologies, superstitions. It's

00:13:43 --> 00:13:57

not true, there is no such thing as bad luck, eliminated from your minds. Our Prophet system said la da, da da, da. There's no such thing as bad luck. But then he said, but I love a

00:13:58 --> 00:14:43

good omen. They said oh messenger of Allah, what is alpha and what is I don't want to translate as good luck. It doesn't mean that it means good omen. He said what is good omen, he said that something that a person sees and it inspires him or something that a person hears and it makes him feel good about the situation. Our scholars say, a good omen means that something happens and you take it as a sign from a law, that your situation will become better that your situation will become from from from bad to better to, to a good situation why and how because alpha means you have good thoughts about Allah subhana wa Tada. Alpha means you are dedicating your personal one and you are

00:14:43 --> 00:15:00

channeling it and you're reading in positive attitudes to anything around you. Even somebody his name can be the source of this alpha l, for example, in the famous incident of the Treaty of Arabia of the Treaty of the day before that,

00:15:00 --> 00:15:45

Multiple emissaries came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, until finally the Sahaba became a little bit frustrated then Suhail, even Amira came. And so Haile comes from the Arabic So hula which means to make easy so hula to make easy when the Prophet system was told so Hale is here, the name, he said, this is a sign that Allah will make our affairs easy optimism, good news. And indeed, Sohail was the one who negotiated the Treaty of her baby, we read in a positive sign to anything, whether it is the rainbow, a beautiful day, good weather, the name of our friend we hear if we hear that a friend of ours was sick and was cured and we have a relative who was sick, we say inshallah,

00:15:45 --> 00:16:26

this is a sign that my relative My son will also be cured. Any positive news, any sign in the world we are allowed to, we are encouraged to read in something positive, because this is alpha. This is an optimistic attitude. And it's always good to have an optimistic attitude. So there's no such thing as bad luck, dear Muslims, but a part of our religion is we read in good omens to anything that we see anything that increases our emotion in a law and good thoughts about a law that is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we are encouraged to do that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us amongst the optimistic amongst the cheerful moneymakers, so those who always look at the best

00:16:26 --> 00:17:09

situations and think the best thoughts of Allah subhana wa tada along with NIDA and for me no Obama letter if he had no me them but he loves Jakarta wha ha Manila for Raja wala deinen illa kobita whatever you want in Russia feta, what I see you're on Illa sorta allama fildena What is one Intelligencer Baku Nebula?
