Beware Of The Word If When Things Didn’t Turn Out The Way That You Wanted | Shaykh Omar Suleiman And Mufti Menk

Hadith says strive to seek that which will benefit and do not feel helpless. Then the prophet (saw) said and then if something overwhelms you then say it is the decree of Allah and He does what He Wills.

So, basically this is Once you have put forth your best and things don’t turn out the way that you want to turn out then say I did my part; Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala has decreed and I’m pleased with what He has decreed.

We never become dependent on our best efforts, we instead put forth our best efforts, but we always recognize the limitations of our efforts and recognizing the limitations of our efforts does not diminish them…. balance between our role versus the decree of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala.

Patience in the midst of all of that Devastation:

Don’t beat yourself up so much over The outcome, seed the positive see what comes out of this for you in regards to the outcomes and don’t go back and say if I would have done this differently, if I would have done that differently…..

Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala had a plan for you and the end of that plan is good for you.

“I Want Good For You” The Pain Of The Parents And Vice Versa – Shaykh Omar Suleiman

You will one day come to know what I have said to you.


Allah (swt) guides whom he Wills. You don’t guide whom you loved and so you do your best but you disconnect yourself, you take responsibility, but at the same time you acknowledge your lack of control over the situation. you, leave that to God…

This person is being spoken to by their parents and saying look I want good for you. You’re going to remember this one day; I’m trying to guide you to a good path.

You’re trying to help someone and the case once your own children who you would do anything for them and they’re on a path of hurting themselves, harming themselves and you’re trying to tell them look it’s for your own good. I want you to think about the consequences of your actions.

When someone can’t hear your advice just let them know that you’re going to love them through their stubbornness.  I love you, and I’m going to pray for you and I’m here for you. The door is open.

I’m telling you something that hopefully will one day come back to you.

What will make your advice ugly is when you have ego in it, when it’s condescending, when it doesn’t,… maybe somewhere in there is some Noble intention but in the midst.. of your Noble intention is being lost. The ugliness of your words, right….

For both of these people; both the Giving that sincere advice and the one listening to that sincere advice, right the ego has to be removed from the picture and you’ve got to consider whether if you’re giving advice to someone, sincere advice to someone out of the love of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala and out of wanting good for them.

Haram Temptations Vs Rizq During Financial Difficulties With Two True Incidents | Shaykh Omar Suleiman

How Allah subhanaw taala rewards our honesty when we’re in a difficult situation. As people start to experience financial uncertainty like many forms of uncertainty; certain options become available to them and certain things open up for them.

There is a unique hardship; a unique way of a person finding themselves in a way that they could be tempted to haram when they’re in a difficult situation.

There’s something to be said about a person who holds onto their principles and does not lose them in a situation of hardship and in a situation of particularly the pinch of financial hardship.

Rewarding a person for their honesty that whoever is mindful of Allah Subhanahu wa’ta’ala during a dire need like financial hardship, Allah subhanaw Taala will make a way out for them and and Allah will provide them from places and with things from places that they would not have expected before.

The source of the rizq and the output of the rizq; the source of the sustenance as well as the output of the sustenance are unknown to you when you choose to practice taqwa, when you choose to practice piety and god-consciousness, even in a tight situation, even in a difficult situation and whoever entrusts Allah with all of their Affairs then Allah subhanaw taala will be sufficient for that person in regards to everything.

You don’t know the rizq that you will see in your life through other business opportunities that Allah will decree that come your way because of you abandoning that haram, You don’t know the blessing/ the Baraka that Allah will put in the money that you earn from halal.

Fitnah From Social Media Post And Don’t Get Your Group Involved

Ibn Abbas (ra) said the documentation of Allah is every expression, every word and every signal whether it is expressed written or spoken. That’s the way that Allah documents

If you would not bring yourself to say it to someone, don’t write it.

When we use social media use it in a way that if you were to die for some reason you would not be embarrassed about the content that you have put out there.

As a Believer we should do that which is good. We should do that which is not embarrassing if we were to die and even if we did not die, but we need to be much more responsible when it comes to the use of social media.

When Allah Sends A Specific Angel To Say Ameen To One’s Dua | AIYP Ep-11

One of the best things that you could do is to tune yourself to immediately praying for someone as soon as you see something with them.

The prophet salallahu alaihe wasalam said that when a person makes dua for their brothers or sisters behind their back, Allah sends an angel and the Angel will say each time amen for you as well.

Angelic Role: Defending One’s Reputation His/Her Absence | AIYP Ep-9 | Shaykh Omar Suleiman

What type of society are we creating? If we allow for people to be insulted and we ask them to not respond on their own behalf.

Allah tasks us with responding on behalf of other people. The prophet (saw) He said whoever defends their brother or sister in their absence that Allah would remove the fire from that person’s face on the Day of Judgment.

It’s also an authentic Hadith of the prophet salallahu alihi wasalam. He said that whoever defends his brother or sister in their absence when they are being insulted, Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala will appoint an angel that would defend their flesh on the Day of Judgment over the bridge.

But the flip side of that the prophet (saw) and whoever disgraces his brother or sister will be suspended over the bridge over Hellfire on the day of judgement until they are interrogated for what they have done.

When we respond on behalf of our brother or sister so that they don’t have to respond for themselves, we basically are playing the role of the Angel. So how beautiful is it that we start to be Angelic and character the way we seek to be Angelic with our worship.

Intention With The Remembrance Of Allah To Be Raised By Angels | AIYP Ep-7

The remembrance has to be an expression of what you longed for and desire in your heart. The prophet (saw) mentioned here two different narrations; one of them is that throughout the day you’re going to have an angel on your head. Reins on your head, on top of that you’re going to have a banner as you carry out throughout the day.

Don’t just state that remembrance, refresh your intention, renew your intention to do good in the world. And renew it throughout the day so that you can maintain that humility for Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala so that Allah makes you amongst those that proceed under the banner of Hiis love and Allah makes you amongst those that are raised in Honor by the angel that He’s put on your head.

The prophet salallahu alaihe wasalam talked about suhoor.  when you wake up in the morning and you have your meal before fajr, suhoor (pre-fasting meal) the prophet (saw) said that look don’t abandon that suhoor, don’t abandon that moment Even if you’re just going to drink a sip of water because the Angels pray upon the one who eats suhoor or takes that suhoor whether it’s through water or dates or whatever it may be.

Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala says that every single person has a guardian angel in front of them and behind them that Protect them from the decree of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala.

Every single human being has only one shaitan (devil) on assigned to them and four Angels assigned to them. Two angels that protect you and two angels that record on. The only time, the only time that they step aside is when Allah (Swt) decrees…
