called emotional wisdom. That's why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said calamities happen to everyone, we all have problems, that is part of life

00:00:10--> 00:00:41

in South Africa, but indeed man was created in the state of cabinet, you know problems all the time. What is sad Is this my brothers and sisters, some of us can only see their problems, they can only live their problems, what happens is this problems are inevitable. They are inevitable, you cannot escape them. Problems are not capable, you have no choice. Problems are not scalable, but misery is optional.

00:00:43--> 00:01:17

Misery is optional, meaning that it is not the problem that should worry you, but rather, how do you react to that problem? is a greater question to ask. So now part of what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching us is the emotional wisdom. Do not be under shackles, because of the type of way that you choose to react to the problems that are going around, liberate yourself of this, live a frame and problems that are happening. And like we said the other day, if your problem can be solved, then don't worry. And if your problem cannot be solved, then worrying will not help you.

00:01:18--> 00:01:32

So why are you worried? And then again, we learn the process will speak of many other shackles, Oh Allah, in ability of speaking of emotional wisdom, they say that there was a man that was blind,

00:01:33--> 00:01:44

and he was crippled. And he just had all sorts of problems. And he's sitting down, and he's saying Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. So someone passed by him and said,

00:01:45--> 00:02:13

Alhamdulillah Look at you, you're blind, you're crippled, you're bound to this chair, and all we hear from us hamdulillah What are you talking about? Susana Hamdulillah, that Allah gave me a tangle. That is constantly remembering Allah. So that hamdulillah that he gave me a heart that has accepted the will of Allah, settle hamdulillah that has given me a body that is patient with the tests of Allah

00:02:14--> 00:02:27

would happen is that he could have said, Oh, La Ilaha Illa. Look at this and look at that, and you know, and you'd give yourself every single excuse to feel miserable in your book. What about

00:02:29--> 00:03:02

Allah hates misery and faking misery or being grim misery upon yourself? It is not my brothers and sisters, again, it is not befitting to the character of a believer, liberate yourself of this have what we call emotional wisdom. Similarly, emotionally, some people are just easily angered. And that stops them from achieving. They break many friendships, they are always in problems with their spouses. They're always you know, they're they can be triggered by anything. But then the process element time came to his companion said, mentor aduna,

00:03:03--> 00:03:27

whom he considered to be a strong person. So now the answer is very obvious. They said yeah, Rasul Allah Manya. Sorry, john, they said prophet of Allah, it is he who is able to rustle down other men. Then the process of them says LA, laser Korea, we saw that the strength is not determined by you wrestling other men in our we, Madame liquinox

00:03:28--> 00:03:33

isn't a strong man is indeed he who has control over himself when he is angered.

00:03:34--> 00:04:11

When we go again, emotional wisdom, liberate yourself of this, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes on to say, of these shackles, his urges and Castle, in ability and laziness, in ability, what it is, is that you have the desire, you have the will, but you have no means case and laziness is when you have the means but you do not have the desires and the possessions at all. I don't want to be in that situation where I am crippled, where I am shackled when I am put down and you know what they say about lazy people. They will always do more work tomorrow.

00:04:13--> 00:04:17

Isn't that what lazy people do? So we will do more work, but tomorrow
