The best of speech the book of Allah and the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early May Allah subhanaw taala makers amongst those who listen to the best of speech, the book of Allah and follow its commandments and the Allah Subhana

Allah makers amongst those who come to know the best of ways the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early and make us amongst his followers Allahumma Amin Allahumma, Amin Allahumma Amin.

00:01:43--> 00:02:24

They say that life was very difficult to knock upon those who chose to follow the Prophet peace be upon him. Life was so difficult that when the Prophet peace upon him publicized his mission, and people openly started accepting Islam, they were ridiculed and they were ridiculed for being lowly for being poor. For being foolish following this man Muhammad sal Allahu Allahu early and then they say that Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals in the Quran surah number 94. So rattle insurer or a sharp expansion or the opening

00:02:25--> 00:02:27

aid eight simple verses

00:02:28--> 00:03:14

that said what was going on? Believers are being ridiculed, they're being mocked, they come to the Prophet peace be upon him and they tell him about the societal pressure that they are feeling. And all the ridiculing that is taken place, the surah is revealed and they say that the Prophet peace upon him came to the believers and he said, after she grew up, she wrote, I have good news for you. Allah Masha Jalisco, Ara alumnus, Rahila, Cassandra, have we not expanded diehard for you? And they say that in our view, when you ask these types of questions, the point of the question is not that you are responding or that you are waiting for an answer. But here it said, as Allah has not been

00:03:14--> 00:04:03

good to you, did Allah not expand your chest for you so that you accepted this, this mission? And they say here the heart is symbolic because that is the seat of knowledge and intellect. As you know that the Quran argues that intellect is an activity that takes place in the heart and not in the brain, the humpal overlay of owner behalf, they have hearts by which they do not understand. They're talking about finding neurons in the heart so much so that nowadays people are talking about the heart has a mind of its own. So that is the seat of knowledge, as well as the seat of intelligence. So Allah said, did we not a big make a big difference for you in the heart? Did we not expand? Did

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

we not open your heart for you?

00:04:06--> 00:04:47

And I'm not sure how to consult the rock or we're gonna anchor with the rock, Allah the own puddle or rock, whatever Anala classic rock the verses go on, to remind the Prophet peace be upon him about the different favors that Allah has had upon him and upon the believers. Did we not lift this burden from you, that has weighed heavily on your back and people say that this has to do with things that were done in the the past and then Allah said, well, Rafa and her luck as a crop, did we not elevate your remembrance. And the point here is not just remembering Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early, but the way that we remember Muhammad Sallallahu ala you will earn, how much reverence people speak

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

when they speak of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, we speak about his qualities we speak about his character, and then comes the Pickety in the valorous are useful in

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

Last Resort. Indeed with every difficulty, there will be ease indeed with every difficulty, there will be ease. And when these verses were revealed to the Prophet peace be upon him say that the Prophet came to his companion and he said, absolu appeal is said glad tidings, I have good news for you. And he recited these verses upon upon them in Madras very useful. Indeed, with every difficulty, there shall come ease, and then repetition for the sake of emphasis, indeed, with every difficulty, they have shall come is shaping the attitude, a positive attitude towards the future, by the believers, by virtue of being a follower of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early, we are expected

00:05:53--> 00:05:58

that our attitude towards the future is a positive attitude.

00:05:59--> 00:06:48

In the midst of these difficulties that are taking place in America, the Quran insists in normal ursery useful in dealing with every difficulty there is going to be ease and that is why my brothers and sisters As believers, we cultivate, we nourish, we revive the sense of hope. A believer must be optimistic. Part of following Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early is that you must be an optimist. In the Hadith, we are told that the Prophet peace be upon him said, and Lucius newhope was shook Massoud follow. And he said that to be a pessimist have to be an optimist, that is the best character to have the best quality and the character to have worship must follow. And to be a

00:06:48--> 00:07:38

pessimist is the worst type of character to have these radical muddiman por la luna several miles of Omaha, not only of the eyeshadow would have settled Emily, so that this idea when hope when hope is gone, then in its place, there is only darkness. In its place. There is only hopelessness. In its place, there is only despair. Our issue the Prophets wife sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us Ghana Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you have somebody equally said that the Prophet peace be upon him. Love the idea of being an optimist in all of his affairs, see, my brothers and sisters, sisters are not here but my brothers sisters who are inshallah listening to us. They say that

00:07:38--> 00:07:44

optimism is very crucial in times when there is difficulty,

00:07:46--> 00:08:32

very easy to be optimistic, when everything is going well. The same way we say that it is very easy to laugh when somebody tickles you. But if you laugh when somebody tickles you, that doesn't mean that you have a good sense of humor. Similarly, if you are an optimist when things are going well, that does not make you an optimist, optimism is about seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, when there is a lot of darkness that are around us. That is optimism. And that's what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught taught to us. And we say this because of the circumstances that we are living in. It's very difficult man Subhanallah you just, you just listen to parents, you

00:08:32--> 00:08:52

listen to children, you listen to kids, and just they tell you, it is very miserable. You know, the house is becoming very chaotic. We are just everybody is bored. It is very tight and it is very boring. Wallahi there is a lot of truth into this. And afterwards is not somebody that denies reality that just makes a silly.

00:08:53--> 00:09:37

You're not an optimist, because you're denying reality. You say, look, despite the reality that is taking place. I choose to only think positive not that I am blind about these difficulties, but I only choose to see positive and utter that positivity. To illustrate. They say Reese Ali Salam Jesus peace be upon him our beloved prophet. He was once walking with his disciples, and they passed by a dead dog that smelled bad that looked bad. So the people grabbed their noses and they just looked away and they say Matt antenna Rhea OMA acaba Hashem. It said, it smells very bad. It looks very this. And then recently he said, I'm looked at he said, Subhan, Allah of your boss said Glory be to

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

Allah got white, you know,

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

white teeth. And then the disciples said, yeah, and he Allah in the hotel Boonmee say prophet of Allah, it is just a dead dog. And then Jesus said, our item as well as if he were to convert them to cinema TV, we'll take a look. So that use all the words in it and you spoke and I showed the

00:10:00--> 00:10:51

stick in it and I spoke not that I did not smell what you smell. Not that I did not see what you saw. But I chose to remain positive, positive people. optimistic people are pleasant people to be around, because they are the ones that are the cheerleaders for everybody else. When everybody else is draining our energy, people who are optimistic they are the one that boosts our energy. When everybody is crushing our soul, people who are optimistic are so pleasant, they build up our story. They're not blind. They're not gullible. They're not simplistic, but rather, they are prophetic in that way, that they have a positive attitude towards the future. May Allah subhanaw taala increases

00:10:51--> 00:10:57

in understanding out of an island, a whole accommodate other stuff like it Well, first of all for.

00:11:11--> 00:11:16

Hamdulillahi Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Hill Mustafa for Allah among

00:11:19--> 00:12:06

being an optimist is an attitude that is firmly rooted in the heart. It is an attitude that shapes our look into the future, that insha Allah has something good will come out of this in sha Allah, something positive in sha Allah, this difficulty will come to an end because Allah promises for a NEMA anniversary, you throw in another recipe you syrup, and they say that the Prophet peace be upon him commented on this and he said lie on your answer on your slide. Because of the way that the language construct of the sentence, Allah refers to one difficulty. But yet Allah the first two two types of ease, the Prophet peace be upon him said, No one difficulty shall overcome two types of E.

00:12:06--> 00:13:05

So let's cut out a we will bring is to your we will bring ease to you without naming what that is, without naming what that is. So have that positive attitude to the to the future. And then my brothers, it is very important that this reflects in the words that we utter the words that we use, words have power, they can either crush our spirits, or they can lift our spirits. We want to pay attention to the power of words that we use Ali alayhi salam used to say, Milan at Colima, to who Zara that will have beautiful so whoever speaks gently, pleasantly is that find that people effortlessly, they tend to love that individual because of the beauty of the words that they utter.

00:13:06--> 00:13:43

Let us make our presence with our families. A pleasant pleasant, if you a an optimistic, positive presence, that when people see us they literally become more optimistic. When Baba when Daddy comes home, everything lights up because of the positive attitude, the good energy that they come in with not because we're giving people false hope not because we are blind to what is going on. But because we have a positive attitude towards towards the future.

00:13:45--> 00:14:23

May Allah Subhana Allah grant us a positive attitude towards the future. May Allah Subhana Allah help us and enable us to become like Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah Subhana Allah grant us a beautiful character of being Optimus Jarrah. But Eileen, may Allah Subhana Allah make us amongst those who shun away evil and Bhushan away pessimism your bill alanine, may Allah Subhana Allah make our presence where ever we may be a positive presence, a pleasant presence, Europa Island, if any of us or our loved ones are going through difficult times may Allah subhanaw taala ease our pain.

00:14:23--> 00:15:00

recovery. If any of our loved ones has passed away, may Allah subhanaw taala bless their souls. If any of us or our loved ones have lost the way may Allah Subhana Allah bring us back to his PAF era but I mean, may Allah subhanaw taala bring a positive outcome to this difficulty or Bradley May Allah Subhana Allah ease our pain very soon Europa Island, Allah Subhana Allah make our homes and our houses Happy Places Europa Island, Allah in the car forward Kareem and hippos are far far far enough.
