Bismillah Ar-Rahman Ar-Rahim.
Allahumma solli 'ala sayyidina Muhammad wa 'alihi

Here are also a couple of questions that Habib answered in the lesson:

1)Someone complained about being weak in their wayfaring and seeking of Allah.

Habib `Umar said:

“Even if you yourself are weak then have strong determination and ambition and seek strength from the All-Powerful for then your weakness will be transformed into strength. Take strength from being broken for His sake for He says: ‘I am with the ones whose hearts are broken for My sake.’ Your feeling of weakness should not drive you to despair, rather it should be a means of truly submitting to Allah which pushes you to truly seek Him.”

2)Someone asked: “How can one rid oneself of having a bad opinion of others?”

Habib `Umar said:

“Learn to revere the knowledge of Allah, which encompasses everything. Know that Allah knows and you do not know. If someone claims to be certain about an assumption he has made he is claiming to have knowledge. However if he knows that Allah possesses all knowledge and has hidden knowledge of many things from him in order that he has awe of Him he will be ashamed to have certain belief in his own assumptions. Only He knows what our ending will be. Allah ordered us to have a good opinion of His slaves and warned us against disobeying Him by having a bad opinion of them.
He says:O you who believe avoid much suspicion, for suspicion in some cases is a sin. So we should obey Him and be in a state of shyness in front of His knowledge.”

And Allah Most High knows best.
