what the artist is in chapter number 29 verse 69, after I finish a bundle Jean, what are the Naja had to feanor Lana? Deanna whom Sue bolena we're in Allaha lemma Allah mercy Nene. And those that strive in our path, we will guide him to our way and Verily Allah subhana wa tada is definitely with the good doers. Now when speaking about Allah subhana wa tada talking about those that strive in our path, we see the two conditions here striving, the work, the toil, the effort, for what purpose, why, in our path, the intention,

Allah will guide them to his way. So when one struggles and goes through a Porsche apart in their lives where they feel it's the limit, and they keep pushing past the limit, because they have a purpose fee now for that purpose for a loss of kind of data, meaning they do it for the pleasure of God, they want God to be pleased with them to make them better people as a reward. And in result, they will go to Jenna by the mercy of Allah and their actions in sha Allah to Allah to Allah.

And it is a promise when we look at the Arabic language or in the LA lemma Allah mercy mean that he is surely

with the ones that are more singing. When we look at the basis of the word morson. hacer una means to beautify it's opposite of something that is not pretty or not good to look at. It is something that is beautified. So when you do a sin, the action that you are doing is a beautiful action and a lot pleased with it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a beautiful Hadith and I want to share this hadith with you because it ties into the verse and what I mentioned earlier.

00:02:38--> 00:03:29

He said, as a man who will be caught on malcare ami, Sephora, tilbyr Allah, the matte hair, the one that reads the Quran, and he is experienced in it is with the noble Angel scribes, one of the Koran way at attack Taro fee, he will who Allah He shall the who are drawn, then the prophet SAW Selim said, and the one that recites the Koran, and it is difficult upon him or her, and they stutter, yet that's an attack, and they stutter when reciting it in difficulty, or it is difficult upon him or her for them as two Awards, two awards from what they were award earlier from the person that may have been experienced.

hard. In reciting the Quran is the one that you see leading and taraweeh. Or the one that you see reciting beautifully, or the one that you see at the Quran competition know, the one that you have converted to Islam, or the one that you are a renewed Muslim being that you have found this level of certainty of yaqeen in your heart, and you think this is the right way. And this is your first Ramadan, that you're practicing, to turn a new leaf to try to start praying to try to read the statements of Allah. You want to reach that point to where there was a statement of Allah that you say, wow, I remember that statement. And that statement got me through. I remember al hamdu Lillahi

00:04:10--> 00:04:53

Rabbil alameen, that Allah is deserving of all praise and human beings may be praiseworthy in some things, and not praiseworthy in others. And as a matter of fact, that is the nature of the human that shows that they are not perfect, but a lot is perfect. Therefore, all praises are for him. And that's just the first verse of the Quran, when remembering that it pulls you through. So what I want to say to you is this month of Ramadan is coming, practice now, let that Koran be a means of discipline for you, and struggle to get to that goal that you want that purpose and guess what, even if you don't reach the goal, Allah loves the struggle, and that's diverse and those who strive in
