Luckily, in either mettam and obasan, who fell in love up bill I usually in China, he alone Moodle kamisha had you to her due

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

to asthma No.

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

To be on

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

saramonic rahmatullah wa barakato

00:00:31--> 00:01:27

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. Ali, he was a happy woman what I'm about today I wanted to cover some verses in the Quran that should be memorized by us. And some of our scholars have called them verses of optimism, verses of getting our spirits high verses that are going we're going to use them and recall them during times of difficulty times of stress times of crises, because the one thing that is a part and parcel of our life is difficulty and struggle. No human being, no human being lives, a gender on Earth, you might think a person does when you see him or her with something that you don't have. But the reality is that every single human being without

00:01:27--> 00:02:05

exception is struggling in some fashion form or manner. Now, I'm not saying it's all the same, no doubt those people that are worried about bombs dropping on their heads, those people that whose families have been split split apart, those people who lost you know, children, Allah protect all of us, no doubt that is a level of difficulty. But nobody is living agenda on Earth, because this earth is not meant for agenda. This earth is meant for trial and testing and tribulation. So the one who is wealthy is being tested in his way, the one who is poor is being tested in his way. The one with family is being tested in his way, the one without families being tested in his way, every one of us

00:02:05--> 00:02:49

is being tested. That's what life is about. So there are certain verses that we should memorize and use so that we can ensure a load to other overcome the struggles I mentioned, some of them obviously, as usual, time is limited. And then I'll conclude with a verse of optimism on a spiritual note on a began verses of optimism from a worldly perspective, from a dunya we perspective, when we face a dunya we problem we should be optimistic first verse, all of you know, it's for intimate, use run in number three use wrong. This is a rule that Allah azza wa jal reminds us of, it's a rule that we should all memorize. For in number three, use raw, Allah never sends down a difficulty, except

00:02:49--> 00:03:40

that along with the difficulty, there is a use of an ease. And then notice, as we know that a set of diverse Allah dances for in nemorosa in a grocery use wrong with the same rooster is another useful. Even Abbas said, Never will one difficulty be able to overcome two or more E's, always the ease will win out over the difficulty for a NEMA I looser the lF lamb here for a normal user and then user is without any problem, my illusory use wrong the meaning here, the same difficulty Allah sends down he will send down multiple ease. So if you are struggling financially, Allah is saying Don't worry, your health will be good. If you haven't health issue, Allah saying you have loving family. If you

00:03:40--> 00:04:21

have a family problem, Allah saying society is at peace. In other words, whatever difficulty you are facing, Allah is saying, I'm going to give you multiple E's, that will make other aspects easy for you, even as you struggle with this difficulty. So have this as an optimism. The second optimistic verse, again, we all know this, these are all basic things, we should just memorize them so that we, when we have a problem, when a financial issue happens when a family issue happens, we remind ourselves the second verse that we should remind ourselves of is law you call the full load of sun illa usaha. You all know what this verse means? no soul is going to be burdened with more than what

00:04:21--> 00:04:31

it can bear. And what this means is, this is a rule again, these are rules of the Koran. These are the rules of creation that Allah is sending down. What this indicates is beautiful.

00:04:32--> 00:04:48

Some people, they think I can't bear this, it's too much for me, the struggle is too hard. I don't have what's in me. And to them, we say your Creator knows that you have it in you to overcome the struggle.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

You might not trust yourself, your Creator trusts you. You might not believe in yourself, Allah knows that you can do it, or else you wouldn't be having the struggle.

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

If you could not bear this burden, the burden would not be on you. It's as simple as that. Now you can lift Allahu knifes and in Laos, Allah, Allah knows you have the strength, you have the courage, you have the fortitude, you have the man, Allah knows you have the inner capacity and the external will to overcome this issue. That's why you're facing it. If Allah knew that you couldn't face it, you wouldn't be facing it. So trust in Allah because Allah is trusting in this case, you get my point, dear, that Allah is trusting in human in the sense here that Allah knows you can do it. So this is a second verse of optimism, that no matter what trial you're facing, no matter how difficult

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

the situation is,

00:05:46--> 00:06:25

Allah knows that you have what it what is inside of you and external factors to overcome the struggle and you shall be the ultimate and the victor if you turn to Allah never does a calamity happened to a believer never does a tragedy occurred to a believer, except that at the end of the tragedy or the calamity, the believer is the victor. It doesn't mean the calamity goes away. If you've lost a loved one, the loved ones not going to come back doesn't mean the calamity goes away. It means your internal struggle will make you a victory over that particular issue. You will come out better, stronger and with more emotion, unless it's your time to die. And if it's your time to

00:06:25--> 00:07:09

die, you will come out a movement and maybe even a Shaheed then you'll still be the winner. The Mothman the believer is never a loser. This is what the Quran and Sunnah teaches us never does the believer come out of loser because Allah has set the system up for you. Allah has set the system up for you that whatever situation you face, if you turn to him, you will be the winner. Now you can live long enough and Illa was the third verse of optimism. learned from the mouth of our Prophet Musa alayhis salam when he was fleeing the children of Israel there in the desert, and they are a ragtag group of people no army, no weapons, literally a group of peasants and slaves for

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

generations. They don't have military training horses power might a group of peasants and villagers and slave running away and behind them is who the mightiest army in the world. The army of fit own train soldiers on horses archers the whole entire nine yards. The military is there and they're running and fleeing on foot and they get to the Red Sea. And what do the bunny is right inside? The bunny is right they don't have that Eman. inala moroccon helaas were gone. For I was gonna catch us up. We're gonna die. What did Moosa say memorize it and then use it Kela in Maria Robbie saya Jean I have a law How can I possibly lose? Allah is with me in the Maria Robbie, how can I possibly lose

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

when I have Allah subhana wa Tada. My Lord will find a way out for me. That's what you call optimism. He had no weapons, no army, no training no horses. behind them is the mightiest military force known to man. In front of them is the massive Red Sea. They don't know how to swim, they have children, they have babies. And Allah says or the Moosa says, nope, it's not gonna happen. I have a lot on my side, Allah will show me a way out. And what did Allah do? Allah showed that way out. When you believe in a law and you put your trust in Allah. That's when the miracles happen might not be as melodramatic as the parting of the Red Sea, but every one of us will law he we can we can

00:08:43--> 00:09:20

experience many miracles in our lives, while law he has Allah is our Lord, we will face and we will see those miracles, many miracles for our personal lives. sustenance will come from a place whenever expected help will come from a source we never thought about. And this is the reality of lived experiences when our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in the heart filled and once again, I will bucket is trembling or the Allahu abubaker is trembling and the people around them and he knows he knows literally it's a millisecond. All they need to do. There's an opening right there, they look down and they see and what did our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam say? What is the verse

00:09:20--> 00:10:00

guys? Nada Hassan in Allah Hama, and at the same philosophy of Musa alayhis salaam of course is the same. They're both prophets laterz and in the La homina. Kalina Maria Robbie sardine. That's the attitude of the movement, the one who follows Moosa, the one who follows in the visa Lola who either he was settled up they have to say the same phrase, no matter what happens. Allah is with me. Allah is with me in the Maria Robbie in the LA Hama, Anna, how can the one who has a lot on his side ever fail? Who cares who's on the other side when Allah is on your site, but you have to attest to that you have to testify you have to affirm

00:10:00--> 00:10:46

You have to say Allah I am your servant, I'm beseeching you, you are my love and you will protect me. So this is another verse of optimism color in the mire of besides in in Nehemiah, Rob be my Rob is with me he will find a way out for me. And again so many can be said one other verse which is one of the most powerful verses of optimism when we're facing a calamity or a tragedy. memorize this for surah Toba beautiful verse. And this Allah revealed after one of the most difficult tragedies of the Muslim Ummah, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu said, they face their own tragedy and Allah azza wa jal revealed full land you'll see Bana inland Khattab Allahu lenah who am Alana while Allah He

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

failure to work with our que

00:10:49--> 00:11:36

se Allah is telling you to say this, Allah wants you to memorize this say nothing shall happen to us, except that Allah has already decreed this for us. And who is Allah? He is our protector. Our caretaker? Do you know what Mola means? Mola means the one who's in charge of protecting you. That's what Mona means. Mona means he is in charge of your nourishment. He is in charge of your health. He is in charge of your safety. That's what Mola means. So Allah is telling us to remember nothing is gonna happen, except is predestined. It's already there. Allah knew it. Allah decreed it. There are no surprises in the book of Allah. There are no surprises for other everything is planned by who By

00:11:36--> 00:12:18

Allah, Who is Allah? He is our Mola Who am Oh Nana. So if Allah has planned it, and he is our protector, he is literally our protector, then surely the one who is our protector will protect us and guide us and manage our way out. Maybe not the way we understand maybe not the outcome we particularly want. But that outcome will be for our own good in the long run, even if we don't understand it in the short run. Allah azza wa jal is our Mola. So we have to have our European our tour what could in Allah pull down you'll see banner Elana cutter Billa hula, who am Oh Nana, these are how many three or four verses about optimism of the dunya because time is limited. I'm just

00:12:18--> 00:12:35

going to finish off with one of the verses of optimism of the optimism of the soul optimism of our sins and Malfurion. Again, there's many verses actually there's we have quick time. I'll do two verses because these two verses according to some of the setup, they are the most optimistic verses of the Quran.

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

One of them is again Surah tober.

00:12:41--> 00:12:50

What are Haruna I thought are forbidden obey Him. Hello to Amazon salia Hon, what are hora say? You are so lovely on your toolbar I lay him.

00:12:51--> 00:13:37

There are other groups of people, not the elite of the Sahaba not the 18 and the Shahada. No, this is now we're moving down. What are Harun? Not the mohanan saw not high up there? What are Harun after them? What are Harun there is a group of people here a total fool between obey Him. They recognize that they have committed sins, hello to Ramadan, sila, Hanwha. Alpha say they have mixed together evil deeds and some also good deeds. They're not pure evil, they're not che altean in human form, they pray they fast they give charity but they also have sins and they recognize that they have committed those sins are a total fool. They recognize they're sinners, who is Allah who and yet

00:13:37--> 00:14:18

YouTube but surely Allah azza wa jal can forgive them. Even Abbas said, whenever Allah says arsa it means he shall do it. Whenever Allah says Assa, it means he's going to do it. Allah azza wa jal shall forgive them are so low on your toolbar, ie him, one of the scholars of the past said one of the top here when he said out of all of the verses of the Quran, this verse, it describes me the best because he said, I am a sinner, and yet I have some good deeds. And I confess that I have committed a lot of sins. And this verse describes me exactly what are Haruna uttara forbidden obey him Hello to Ramadan saw that.

00:14:20--> 00:14:58

He said, It describes me and I say if a great scholar of this type your own could say this, surely me and you were included in this verse as well. We are not, maybe to that level of aboubaker normal, that's the Allahu anhu. But this verse gives us hope. We have mixed together good and bad deeds, as long as we acknowledge those evil and we ask Allah for forgiveness, I still love you and your to violate him. Allah shall forgive us out here means he shall forgive them. And of course, the single most optimistic verse, according to the majority of scholars of Islam, and of course, it's an opinion which is the verse most optimistic is the verse that our quarter recited was a two days ago,

00:14:59--> 00:14:59

poorly or a bad day.

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

alleging a sort of rather than forcing him luck or not to me Rahmatullah in the law, yo fudosan Oh, by Jeremy, in the Hall of Fame, unconditional. Allah flung the doors open and did not put a single limit or restriction. And Allah addressed us in the first person directly, only our ebrd Allah is saying, Oh my God, he's speaking to us in the first person on my worshipers. Anybody who worships me, you're a body and he ascribed us to himself. Despite our sins, He ascribed us to himself. He said, these are miry bad. Anyone who worships Allah is in this verse. Yeah, anybody and then Allah azza wa jal is talking to whom those who have committed lots of sins against their own souls. In

00:15:48--> 00:16:23

this verse, Allah is talking to me and you he's not talking to the solid eight and the 13 he's talking to me and you all my servants who have sinned their whole lives against their own cells. La taco Nakula Rahmatullah. Don't despair of the raha of Allah, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, Allah is a food and Brahim, the most unconditional, open ended, flung open verse that tells any sinner, any sinner, don't worry, Allah will forgive you, Jimmy.

00:16:24--> 00:17:08

And then Allah says, Why? Because I am the fool. I am the Rahim. So these are some verses in the Koran that we should memorize how we should use them to always have a good opinion of Allah personal one in Allah subhana wa Taala always think positive, positive thoughts, dear Muslims, will law hate your sins are nothing compared to the Wrath of Allah, Your sins are nothing compared to the Rahman and Rahim? Do you not realize? Do you not realize the blasphemy that shaitan puts in your mind in my mind the blasphemy when shaitaan says to us, you're too sinful to be forgiven? Do you not realize that that thought that thought is a bigger sin than any sin you possibly could have committed in

00:17:08--> 00:17:54

your actions? I repeat, the belief and the thought that Allah cannot forgive you is a bigger sin than any sin or sins that your whole lifetime could have possibly committed. Why? Because that thought limits Allah subhanho wa Taala whereas your sins are nothing compared to the hammer of Allah. So when you say I cannot be forgiven, when you say I am too sinful, you are limiting the raw Hammer of the hammer raw Hey mean? Who are you and your sins compared to the infinite mercy of Allah that you dare say? How can Allah forgive me that thoughts is shaped onic get rid of it. Take it out of your mind. Allah can forgive all sins indeed, who else forgives other than Allah subhanho wa

00:17:54--> 00:18:14

Taala. So we think good thoughts of Allah, we have personal one in the law. We always have positive thoughts about our religion and about our faith in our Creator and inshallah, day by day we overcome our struggles until we meet our Lord and He will be Rahman and Rahim if we put our trust and do up in him in sha Allah to Allah with this, we will continue tomorrow.
