The next question Assalamu alaikum. This is Dr. Farhan Khan, from Hyderabad, India. I want to ask where the sins of grandparents forefathers have an impact on present future generations? I don't know. But this present generation of a family including me, find ourselves in hardships and struggle, even for simple things. As for many others, it comes with ease. With a blink of an eye. I hope you will give guidance in this issue.

00:00:33--> 00:00:37

Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah Nam chapter six was in 164.

00:00:39--> 00:00:45

While I was here to visit Oprah, no soul shall bear the burden of the other soul.

00:00:47--> 00:01:09

Every person is responsible for his or her actions. And I would request you to be optimistic, you should not be a pessimistic person, you should be thankful to whatever Allah subhanaw taala has given us, we all should be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala for example, if you make a profit of $10,000

00:01:10--> 00:01:24

it depends upon how you think, if you say I've made only a profit of $10,000, it is not good. But if you think in optimistic manner, and you say I have Alhamdulillah made a profit of $10,000.

00:01:26--> 00:01:30

Similarly, if you make a loss of $10,000

00:01:31--> 00:01:37

and if you're ungrateful to Allah subhanaw taala and say, I have made a loss of $10,000.

00:01:38--> 00:01:51

But if you are an optimistic person, you will say I have only made a loss of $10,000 I could have made a loss of $100,000 Alhamdulillah. All Praise to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:01:52--> 00:02:14

So you should always be an optimistic person. And why would you blame your grandparents or forefathers or why would you say they are responsible for your deeds, in no way they are responsible for your deeds, every person is responsible for his or her deeds, and whatever they did, it will not have an impact on your life.

00:02:15--> 00:02:18

The others they are getting it in a blink of an eye.

00:02:19--> 00:02:25

You are thinking it that they are getting it in the blink of an eye, but because they are optimistic.

00:02:26--> 00:02:30

Therefore it seems as if everything for them is in a blink of an eye.

00:02:32--> 00:02:54

So even if you are optimistic, you will have a peaceful and a happy life and you should always be content to Allah subhanaw taala for whatever he has given you, for the air, for the food, for the water for the shelter all the things that he has given you, you should be thankful and grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for the niyama for the blessings that He has given you
