inshallah huhtala everyone is well, the mind, your mind is your battlefield. The reason why I chose that topic is, you know, I've had a few random streams and now I just kind of want to be a little more positive in Sha Montana, just a tiny bit more positive, because life comes at all of us hard. Life comes at us extremely hard sometimes, you know, and that's just the nature of life. Life is hardship. This is part of, you know, the way life is designed by Allah subhana wa Tada, we entered into this life hardship, we're gonna leave it a hardship, and I've talked about that. But the place where that battle takes place almost every single day on a daily basis, a patch, especially for

00:00:57--> 00:01:35

those of you who are struggling, especially those of you who might be going through difficulty, those of you who might be going through hardship, the place where your main battle is going to take place is right here in your mind, your mind is your battlefield. This is the battlefield. This is the moment when you open your eyes every single morning, when you open your eyes every single morning.

And unto him, we shall return this was the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam upon waking, so we wake up with that attitude of

This is how you make it. Let me tell you from experience from someone who's been through it, and in

00:02:18--> 00:03:00

my next podcast, I'm going to drop some bombshell revelations of a four year period of my life where every single day was a war, every single day was Warzone, but in real life. And the only way I survived that the only way you make it through that and then you make it through the rest of your day. And the rest of your struggles is you wake up with that mindset that I'm ready to do battle to date. I don't care if you don't feel it right here. I don't care how you know, down it gets I know it's so hard. But you have to wake up ready to do battle stepping into the Coliseum saying today is my day. Today is the day I am going to go to war because life is going to give you excuses. shaitaan

But I want you I want every single one of you listening to remind yourself that you are successful, you are a winner, because Allah subhanho wa Taala has promised you Allah has not promised us that life would be easy.

The mind is such a powerful, powerful tool that was given to us by our Creator. It has the ability to perceive reality in a certain way. So when you wake up in the morning, number one with the idea of gratitude that I'm thankful to my Creator that I have woken up today. And then number two, that whatever obstacles are put before me today, whatever struggles come my way, whatever hardships whatever enemies I faced today, I'm going to take each and every single one of them down in sha

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

Allah you have to have that mentality when you wake up every single day. Because Allah has promised you your Lord has promised you success but he is not promised to ease. He's not promised you ease He has promised you success. But he is also told you that you have to put in the work. You have to put in the work because Allah Yes, he said a full moon but he also commended us to put in the effort.

Paradise, Valley guru falls within. This is the greatest victory. This is the greatest victory. But that victory is in the hereafter. That victory is in the hereafter that victory goes on to the next life. So what about this life? In the next verse? Allah says what a Buddha nostro mean Allah will fatten he wabasha meaning Masha

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

Our Lord is too good to us. Allah he's too good to us. In the next verse, Allah says in this life will lead to a boon Haha, I'll give you that which you love. I'll give you that what you desire. I'll give you that what you're making, for I'll give you that which you're dropping tears rolling down your cheeks for natural mean Allah, I'll give you my help. I'll send you my help. And when the help of Allah comes, Allah says when Allah sins his help, who is it that can stand against you? When Allah decides to help you brothers and sisters, there is nobody that can stop your victory. There is nobody that can stop your success. There's nobody that can stand in your way. There's no enemy that

00:06:44--> 00:07:24

can come against you. There's no army that can come against you. There's no darkness that can overcome you. When Allah has granted you success nurserymen Allah and then Allah says, What for turn cream, then I'll give you a clear victory. I'll give you a clear victory that everyone will see.

00:07:24--> 00:07:59

nasro meet Allah he would fit on Karim. Then Allah ends it by saying wabasha meaning so give glad tidings to those who have faith. So I'm asking you brothers and sisters today. Do you have faith? Do you trust in the one who created you? Do you trust in the one who woke you up this morning? Do you trust in the one who gave you food this morning? Who gave you drink this morning? Do you trust the one who gives you air to breathe every single second? Do you trust the one who put the heart in your body to beep and pump beat and pump blood in you? Do you trust him subhanho wa Taala if you trust Him, then put in the work and you'll see the results because he's promised it that is one thing I

00:07:59--> 00:08:17

will tell you with no shadow of a doubt, no reservation, as our Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, and he whose hands is my soul, I promise you that if you put in the work, went to jail he doing ccbt law he became what he called one fujichrome. If you put in the work, Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you the victory.

00:08:18--> 00:09:03

The battlefield is right here. It's right here. cheban will come to you here. your your your depression will come to you here. Your anxiety will come to you here, your difficulties will come to you hear that voice that tells you to give up comes to you here. This is where the battle takes place. This is every single day trust me, someone who's been through depression, someone who's been through anxiety, someone who's been in the deepest of dungeons, in physical terms, the deepest of dungeons. And when you hear my next podcast, you will understand what I mean. Trust me that battle here every single day, you have to fight this. You have to fight this. And if you can win this

00:09:03--> 00:09:43

battle every single day, if you can get up every morning and say I have on my boots today, I have on my gear today, I am ready. I might not feel like it there every single day I wake up there's a reason for me to not feel like putting in work. There's a reason for me to not feel like getting up. There's a reason for me to not feel like coming on the stream and expressing myself to you guys. There is every reasoning excuse in the world for me to do not not nothing. But I refuse to listen to that voice. I refuse to let it shut down when I refuse to let the depression when I refuse to let the anxiety when I refuse to let the darkness have root. I refuse to let my lower selves take me

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

over. I'm going to put in the work and put in the battle I might lose today. I might lose one battle today. I might lose another battle tomorrow. I hell I might lose four or five battles for the next week. But the war I will win it insha Allah who I will win it by last

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

Because Allah says whoever fears him. Yeah, Allahu Maharaja, I will make for him away out. Whoever fears me, I Allahu Maharaja, I will make for them away out, and I will provide for them in places they did not know. So brothers and
