Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.
He says I don’t have a job, people show him a job, and he does not like it. He complains the whole time, “Why should I live in this life? Let me die and be saved.” Our Holy Prophet (SAW) says about them, “Do not wish for death.” He wants to die because he cannot do anything in this world. There are some types, it is the wisdom of Allah, who do not like whatever you offer them. If you offer him the best job, he does not say he does not like it but makes excuses saying, “They fired me. This and that happened.” You could offer him a hundred jobs and he still would not work, but when it comes to complaining he complains.
So it means these people are not happy with Allah. Allah has granted us this life, He created us as Muslims, gave us the greatest blessing (nima), and you go ahead saying, “I don’t like it. Let Allah take my life so I can be saved!” If a person does something good for you and you respond like this, he would call you ungrateful. Allah Azza wa Jalla created you. He gave you hands, feet, and faith. He created you as Islam. You cannot go ahead saying such things. It does not fit manners (adab). Such a thing neither fits Islamic manners nor does it fit human manners.
Allah (JJ) created millions of people like you, and they are all working and trying. So are you the only one? Will Allah Almighty and Exalted be He not look after you? You need to start somewhere even if it is the lowest work. Then Allah would give you the blessing (baraka). It does not work if you think like, “I want to get rich quick. Allah should give me everything!” Such a thing is foolishness. It is both foolishness and ill- manners towards Allah. You will work. You need to work. Laziness is not good. Shaykh Mawlana (QS) would always say, “You would make an allowance even if at least you bought a crate of lemons and sold them.” But no, he wants it immediately. Then he will say, “I bought the crate of lemons and I got stuck with it.”
You tell him, “Do this,” and he says, “I did it and this happened.” So he gives an excuse for everything and then prays to Allah not to make him live anymore. However, Allah forbid when something [scary] happens, he does not know what to do from fear. Allah gave people great blessings. Our being created as humans is the greatest blessing. Humans are in the highest station among creation. With faith it becomes more acceptable, but even if a human is faithless he is in a high station, because you never know when faith might come. A person could pass away with faith even in the last breath. Therefore, we need to show respect to people. It is also obligatory (fard) to be thankful for the blessings (nimat) Allah has granted. We need to keep our manners.
May Allah give us all good manners. You should say, “No matter how much my ego suffers it is little.” Allah granted us great blessings. There is health, appetite, and all kinds of blessings. Go for the job you find. Millions of people come from outside of this country and thank Allah they are receiving from the blessings (baraka) of this country. They are looking after their families and are being a blessing all around. This is a blessed place. It is blessed everywhere but it is also blessed here. The man who says, “I don’t have a job as I can’t find a job,” is a liar and is lazy. May Allah not make us from them. May Allah give people sense and intelligence Inshallah.
Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.
