Salam Alaikum, Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh How are you guys doing? I just had like an aha moment, right? And I really wanted to share it with you guys. So as a mom, you know, we always worry like, you know, our kids? Are they getting what they need to get in a good time? Right? like time management? Are they getting the concepts that we're trying to teach them, you know why they're not getting it? Why is one of them faster than the other, and Subhanallah we always end up falling into this loop of comparison and just worrying which is so wrong. May Allah forgive me, but Subhanallah so I was watering my plants with the kids and I grew on a couple of weeks ago. And I wanted to show

00:00:35 --> 00:01:19

you something. So these plants, this one over here, and then this one over here, and this one over here, and this one over here, right? Different types of plants, but they were all planted on the same day, right? From the same kind of potting soil from the same bag of potting soil exposed to the same amount of water, the same amount of sunlight, but some of them grew. And some of them taking a little bit longer. And some of them just barely sprouted down here. And subhanAllah I'm thinking to myself, this is the same concept. Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us the fact that one of them did not bloom, it doesn't mean that nothing is happening down there under the soil. The same concept

00:01:19 --> 00:01:57

with our kids, we might be talking and teaching and telling them or you know, telling them what's right and what's wrong. Don't ever think that nothing is going on because underneath that soil, the one specifically that haven't grown yet, and inshallah if I don't kill them, they will grow and bloom and we have beautiful flowers. There is roots growing underneath there. They're still collecting the nutrients, right the sunlight, the water, whatever it is that I'm giving you the last panel, it's a * of courses, and one day they will bloom but at their own pace. Subhanallah just a learning moment for me, very humbling. Don't compare your kids first of all with anybody else. Each

00:01:57 --> 00:02:32

one of them is unique. Cucumbers are the diff are different from the eggplants, different from the tomatoes from the okra from the lavenders and the parsley. They're all going to grow at their own pace, their own have their own beauty and each one of them provides something different, that's beneficial. So you know have Sabra on your kids and have Sabra on those around you and just keep doing what you're doing and know down there underneath the soil. They're getting it all in and one day in sha Allah, it will just fill this world with flowers in sha Allah and benefits. Have a wonderful day Santa Monica
