THE WAY OUT OF ALL PROBLEMS IN LIFE – MUFTI MENK

published on July 20, 2020

My brothers and sisters the solutions to all our problems are within revelation allah subhanahu wa'ta'ala created us he knows us better than we know ourselves many times we go through issues and problems and we are looking for solutions where we will never find them

People are looking for happiness and they look at the prohibitions of Allah and they want to find happiness in that which Allah has prohibited it's not going to come it's very short lived a fake sense of perhaps ecstasy that a

Person might feel and thereafter there is a regret for a long long time no matter what it is be it someone who wants quick money in the wrong way they pinch or they are corrupt or they have bribed or they have stolen they will

Live with that fear for a long long time there will be no blessings in that money they will never ever be a moment where the person is actually very happy without any worry or concern but when you hand your affairs to Allah even if

You are struggling even if you are going through challenges your health your wealth your family you will be such a happy person you will be smiling within you let alone just on your face may allah subhanahu wa'ta'ala grant us that

Happiness if we look at the quran it has in it a lot of messages that are very very powerful they are reminders when allah blesses you he knows what you deserve and he knows what perhaps is better for you right now sometimes you

And I don't deserve luxury in this world because it may result in us turning away from allah so allah says i'm not going to give it to you and you are so upset and angry and praying and asking and saying oh allah I want this I want this

I want this Allah says I know I'm not going to give it to you because I love you if I'm going to give it to you it's not going to be good for you you and I will not have a good relationship you will forget me you will go away from me

You are going to drop into sin and there which is deviant such that in the hereafter the eternal life will be lost the best thing let me let you not have what you want for a few years and then when you come to me I will give you

Everything you want subhanAllah but man especially those who don't believe can bend to him bone and I J let our tether Gila allah says nay you love that which is right in front of you and you forget that which is to come

Which is eternal you love this worldly life such that in it you want what you want but you are forgetting that the eternal life sorry you love this temporary life and you are forgetting that the eternal life that is to come is

The reality it is what you need to work for what is your wealth going to do for you do you know that wealth when it is given to you is a very big test from Allah children when they are given to you they are a very big test from Allah

Listen to what Allah Subhanahu WA Ta'ala says in surah al-anfal verse number 27 yeah I knew and lovino letter who knew how a sunnah wa – who knew a man Tinku what don't on the moon oh you who believe oh

You who believe do not attempt to deceive Allah or to deceive his messenger you won't be able to you are deceiving yourself what do you think you're doing o you who believe be loyal be faithful unto Allah and His

Messenger you say la ilaha illallah you know it means there is none worthy of worship besides Allah but you are worshipping everything besides Allah and you are not worshipping Allah that is the essence of Tahiti to worship Allah

Alone I bear witness there is none worthy of worship besides Allah then I am worshipping everyone besides Allah and everything besides Allah that is unrealistic unacceptable then I say the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is

The Messenger of Allah and his message means nothing to me subhanAllah imagine when you believe someone is the Messenger of Allah you would know that that message is coming with for you is an honor it is a

Privilege really we are privileged that the man reached us imagine someone sends you a letter from somewhere and the postman looks for you finds you and delivers it in your hand a very important message you're going to open

It and be grateful grateful to the one who sent the message and grateful for the fact that he chose the best of the messengers that he actually found you and gave it to you honor so the same applies the Quran the sunnah of the

Prophet salallahu salam it is an honor that it came to us through this blessed messenger we are saying muhammadun rasulullah sallallahu Salim Mohammed is the Messenger of Allah Salih Lara Salaam but do we really consider him a

Messenger Allah says don't deceive don't attempt to deceive Allah or His Messenger you are not going to get anywhere if you try that and Allah says do not betray you know the term Chiana refers

To betrayal do not betray Allah or His Messenger do not betray what you have been entrusted with Amana Amana meaning a trust whatever you've been entrusted with primarily the Shahada that you hold the Deen the faith that you have don't

Betray don't be fake be as genuine as possible where you have gone wrong quickly make amends and understand that this life is definitely a test I've said it again and again that you know what the fact that you didn't choose who you

Were born to where you were born where you came what color you were already proves that there is an exam and a testing us here we are not in control the questions are asked by the examiner not by the one being tested so you

Choose very little you actually choose how to respond to the situations you are put into by the examiner why are you black why is someone else white why is another person red why yellow because Allah wants to test you that's all if it

Was for you each one would have chosen his own color or nationality but Allah says no will you respect each other will you reach out to each other will you understand that there is no value for a color besides just that it is a test

From Allah for you for I for every one of us and the same applies to everything else your financial level when the deal comes to your business Allah he it's a test Allah wants to watch is it going to make you arrogant I promise you when

Money comes quick it is a very very big test those who have not worked hard for their money I would like to think the majority of them it messes around with their attitude it makes them think that they are ruling the world and they don't

Understand Allah is the one in charge they think they can do what they want because as the olders used to say the elderly used to say they don't know how many twenties make a hundred for them it was just one twenty and it was a hundred

For them subhanAllah those who worked hard they know how many ones make one hundred may Allah make it easy because they earned it one by one by one but if you got ten thousand one shot you don't even know it's a

From Allah I'm not saying they are bad in attitude but I'm saying it messes with their attitude it's a challenge when you are a multi-billionaire and you can come and polish the shoes of someone else

Wallahi you are a man who is worth looking at you are a man who has achieved because your money humbled you it brought you down when you are a powerful figure and you can still greet and talk to the people in a proper way

You are someone who in the eyes of Allah is trying to pass that test if you don't have what you want and it turned you away from Allah you are as big a loser as a person who has what he wants and it turned him away from Allah the common

Factor is both of them turned away from Allah due to the condition they were put in what's the difference this man got so much he forgot Allah that man doesn't have what he wants he forgot Allah he's angry with Allah so what's the

Difference may Allah Subhanahu WA Ta'ala keep us happy when Allah gives you say alhamdulillah that is why on the day of judgement a caller will call where are those who used to praise Allah upon all conditions bring them forth they deserve

VIP treatment here Aladin Akana module allah hafiz sabahi what the rock those who used to praise allah in good condition in bad condition it didn't change their relationship with allah it made them better you ask me who

Is struggling i tell you the richest of the lot are struggling more than the poorest those who have seen more money in their lives find it more difficult to adjust than those who never saw that money their life was always the way it

Is may allah subhanahu wa'ta'ala make it easy for us so be humble become when you have Allah wants to see do you look at those around you who don't have and quietly reach out to them empower them look at them give them treat them well

That is building your hereafter that is fulfilling the trust of Allah Allah created people around you not for nothing he chose them as a test you will have problems with some of them you will have friendship with some of them you

Will have dealings with some of them you will have so much with some of them Allah just wants to see are you still going to make us the focus of your life or will you dwindle and drown in this worldly

Life in surah 2 dolla again Allah reminds us of something similar saying that you know what man loves that which is now the worldly life and he's prepared to pay as a price the eternal life you want comfort in this

World and what's the payment you're paying the comfort of eternity that's not worth it a person who believes knows that that's not not worth it at all so let's look at the verse the next verse verse number 28 of the same surah surah

Al anfal surah number 8 of the Quran Allah Subhanahu WA Ta'ala says in why my new cool air to come Fitness that who do nothing we want you to know that your wealth and your children your offspring are just a test they are tests they are

A trial for you we have given them to you short term your children are not actually your children they belong to Allah biologically they are yours because Allah allowed you to enjoy the statement they're mine yet

Where were they prior to their birth with Allah where will they be after they die with Allah so whose are they they are Allah is not mine temporary for a few years I can say my son my daughter Allah says hang on hang

On actually our children we have given this child to you we're going to take the child away one year old five years old ten years old we want to watch when you have the child will you help them dress

Modestly will you teach them about us will you help them grow in our obedience Salah more oh Allah the compass Allah to whom abner who subleasing in the Prophet peace be upon him says at the age of seven you should start instructing your

Children regarding prayer prior to that they should watch you and pray without you saying a word because we've kept it automatic within their nature that when they watch at an early age they want to mimic that from Allah that's a loss plan

A child will mimic who created that Allah you keep fulfilling Salah you dress properly you enjoy growing your beard for example you enjoy doing things Allah Subhanahu WA Ta'ala has created the power of mimicking in a one-year-old

Child they want to dress like you talk like you they'll go into subdued and you cannot yet talk to them in the language but they know what to do why Allah says we we have given them as a test as they grow older you will have less and less

Authority over them when they become much older they want you to have nothing to do with their lives so much so that when they're getting married the choice of marriage you will be lucky if you've given them a good upbringing

They may involve you in it you're fortunate nowadays they probably wouldn't in most cases but that's a test from Allah to prove to you the child is not yours in the holistic sense but rather belongs

To Allah so Allah says the same applies to your wealth when was your money before it was in your pocket I promise you somebody else's pocket right where was it before it was in their pocket somewhere else

Before that way was it it was either in the form of gold and silver and that was in the real world now it is it was just inked in the printing press right as they print 28 billion dollars a week in the state's backed by what I believe

Almost nothing may Allah bless us and grant disease and then they pay it to you for having worked for one week and you're so excited you've seen the greenback brother they just printed the paper you are excited because for you it

Holds value in the eyes of Allah it is nothing it is nothing believe me when you receive honor from an individual it is more valuable than receiving money from them that's why we are taught when you're giving a purpose and money you

Give it considering yourself fortunate to have been able to give because Allah says money they will come a time when no one will want it they will have enough of it people are giving value to a Bitcoin subhanAllah tomorrow they will

Give value to a who has a it will carry air in a bag and say listen this I'm paying for what for this carry air in a bag so Han Allah may Allah grant Aziz I'm speaking reality so Allah says these

Things of value they are just a test they hold no value in reality where was the gold before dug in the ground when you're digging the ground you're either dig in your grave or you're digging for gold what else may Allah grant us is

Subhan Allah you're digging a pit either you're going to be buried or either you might find gold or silver who gave it value Allah gave it value there saying that you were created from if you apply heat and pressure you create glass

SubhanAllah you thought of that if you apply heat and pressure to send you get glass and what am I created from the same sand and dust what are you created from exactly the same Allah saying man your body even

Your body is not yours it's an Amana you are going to leave it it's going to decompose into the soil on the on the day of judgment we will give you a new body another one another one not this one

SubhanAllah did you know this amazing you get into Jannah you really think you're going to have the same body you will have a blemishless body that's why every one of us there will be a small thing wrong here or there some major

Some minor you look into the mirror if you look too long in the mirror you're not supposed to you just say alhamdulillah you walk out when you look too long you start not just it is one here here right here hey there's another

One here you're starting a but that eye is a bit bigger than this one and Allah says look man you want perfection it is for the Hereafter it is not here it is for the hereafter but if you want to achieve the Hereafter understand this

Life is just a deception Allah tells you don't be deceived for one common higher to dunya one I ever won a cumbia he'll wrong don't be deceived by this worldly life it is short it is temporary it's going to end for you today

Today it's went to him oh if you're lucky tomorrow tomorrow means in the near future I think some people were worried at me looking saying today like I might go but we may I may go you need to be ready are you ready the

Answer is you're supposed to be if you if your answer is no and you don't know what the world is all about you don't know what this life is all about if you have sinned my brothers and sisters remember one thing

Turn to Allah may Allah forgive us that is one thing that will free you from Hellfire keep seeking the forgiveness of Allah there is hope your Lord is the most merciful the most compassionate the most beneficent the most kind the most

Loving he will forgive you but what is needed from you is to seek that forgiveness that's all may Allah forgive us o Allah you are merciful you are kind you are compassionate we have done wrong we have

Sinned we admit it forgive us help us to turn o Allah bless us for clean us grant us paradise we are only at your mercy and no other mercy we're at the mercy of Allah now let's talk about the issues we have the problems we are facing do you

Know that Allah says when he has blessed you he won't take that blessing away unless you deserve for it to go away did you know that the lika become over here on and coming here forcing him Allah says Allah is

Informing us telling us that Allah does not change the goodness that he bestowed upon a community upon the nation until they have changed inside they have become people who deserve for it to be snatched from them this is why when

Calamity strikes yes at that juncture the scholars the noble people they will come to you and say don't worry it's a test from Allah don't worry because at that juncture that's what we're taught to tell people it's a test but it might

Not be a test it could be a punishment from Allah how do I know if I face my challenge with contentment it is a trial from Allah a test from Allah and it is actually not a punishment I'm a happy man I met a brother who told me I grow

My food and I've been eating vegetables and so on for a long long time and I'll humble I thank Allah at least it grows and I'm saying Subhan Allah some people if they don't get meat in the week it's like Tiana has come into the home I

Promise you it's well for what look at the difference who is in adapt here the one who has not the one who doesn't because he doesn't know that there are others who have nothing nothing much but they are so excited they are happy

Because they've adjusted their lives they've adjusted their lives according to what under gave him tomorrow it changed I must cut you might need to sell my kite sold I catch public transport I'm excited to interact with

The people in the Kombi what's wrong Subhan Allah but no how can I go in there how can I go in there who are you if Allah wants you you're going to you'll walk also you might not even afford that may Allah bless us we've

Still got the legs thank Allah if you want to make a disaster out of something you'll make a disaster out of the fact that the salt is less in your food when others they don't even have the food you have Allah grant Aziz so when something

Goes wrong look at yourself tell yourself am i doing something wrong can I go back to Allah as a whole community as a nation we need to go back and check why is it

That Allah took away the goodness that we have perhaps we're involved in sin perhaps we are corrupt perhaps we have turned away from Allah perhaps our dress code is worse than anything we can imagine perhaps we have

No morals left no values left we are cheating and stealing perhaps something is happening wrong we need to correct it wholesale otherwise it's not coming back because there is another verse that shows you that the opposite is correct

What's the opposite now when you have a problem Allah is not going to remove you from the problem until you change your life in Allah Hannah you one hero man becoming hotter over here will not be forcing him Allah will not change the

Bad condition of a nation or other people until and unless each one of them changes themselves so we see problems we know the problems they are becoming worse we are passing the buck it's because of that guy it's because of this

Person no it's because of me man it's because of me I am not fulfilling my Salah I'm not interested in how to dress how to talk how to address why subhanAllah if I'm far from Allah I told you at the beginning of this talk the

Solution to the problems we have lies in revelation didn't I say that it lies in what Allah has Allah taught it to us Allah gave us come on my brothers and sisters we must change we must cut out the sin may Allah help us we must seek

Forgiveness of Allah because Allah says when you seeking forgiveness you never punish you why mankind of love with me by whom wahoo me estaphan Allah will not punish them while they

Are seeking the forgiveness of Allah a quick way of earning the mercy of Allah is to seek the forgiveness of Allah quickly seek the forgiveness of Allah Allah forgive me forgive me the Prophet

Sallallaahu Selim used to repeat it seventy to a hundred times a day he didn't need to do that but he did it to teach us so Hanh Allah and where are we so my brothers and sisters these are the challenges we face like I said your

Children are a test from Allah if Allah hasn't given you he knows he wants to give you Jannah just their patience just bare patience and if Allah has blessed you with children and taken them away your reward is with Allah you need to

Bear patience just say alhamdulillah it's not easy to say alhamdulillah when calamity strikes say it and see what happens move on Allah will unite you in the hereafter for ever and ever what's the point of losing a child here

And in the hereafter you don't get to see them because you lost your Iman after you lost the child by questioning a line becoming angry with Allah look at what's happening to others across the globe

They've lost their homes they've lost their loved ones they've lost their properties they've lost their wealth they don't have food they don't have anything and they are still saying alhamdulillah we don't have the time I

Would have given you so many examples but my brothers and sisters I pray that these few words I've said today on this blessed Friday can actually motivate myself and yourselves to do something to become a better person let's reach out

To others with kindness with goodness let's try our best to be the most upright and you see what will happen in your life even if you don't have so much money money is not everything money is not everything even if you don't have so

Much contentment is what we are looking for and that belongs to Allah he only distributes it to those who try to develop a relationship with him a cola-cola hara or social allahu wa sallam ala nabina
