Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah my brothers and sisters in Islam are about five, six days into Ramadan now, and this is when laziness begins to creep in and people start going backwards in their worship, and then there is citation of the Quran, solid telawi. Now people begin to skip these in the masjid, the prayers, the obligatory prayers, people start deleting them were at the beginning of the month, it was a fiery, powerful start. And this laziness is an issue and it needs to be addressed. Well hamdulillah Allah azza wa jal has provided a solution for every matter. The very first thing is, there are two accounts that you need to be consistent upon. And
these two accounts or remedies they are treatments for laziness. The first one is layer, hold our Quwata illa. To see this, and to continue to repeat it throughout the day and throughout the night. set for yourself a goal seeing about 50 times 100 times 200 times, don't even put a number say it until you feel that your heart has become nourished and energized for the worship of Allah azza wa jal La hawla wala Quwata illa Allah and acknowledge and understand its meaning, lay a whole meaning there is no
movement, there is no movement whatsoever and how old you are and how will mean Harlan Illa. Ahead. There is no movement from laziness to energy and no of movement from comfort to Eman and no movement from sin to good deeds and from bad habits to good habits, what are cooler and there is no power, no mind Ill labeler except by Allah subhanahu wata and you will not be able to change your situation of laziness into energy to worship Allah azza wa jal except if Allah azza wa jal was to give you this power, so you repeat these words and this is why in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam said that if the slave says later, how will our Quwata illa Allah who would say us them Abdi was the slum that my
sleeve has submitted, he has submitted to me and he has surrendered to me, it's like you've given up, you've given up you've put your hands up when you say La hawla wala Quwata illa Allah, meaning you're saying, Oh Allah, I direct all my affairs to you all my affairs, I direct them to you. And if you have directed all your efforts to Allah, meaning you have directed them to the source of power and to the source of mind, and to the source of strength and ability. And so if this is who you're right, relying upon, if you're relying upon Allah azza wa jal, and that is by saying La hawla wala Quwata illa Allah, then such people Allah azza wa jal gives them energy, energy in this world they
live to fulfill their daily activities and energy in their worship spiritual energy, so that you continue worshiping Allah azza wa jal in the manner that is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa taala. So that's the first thing and the second thing is to see Subhan Allah Well, hamdulillah Allahu Akbar before sleeping, you see Subhan Allah 33 times Alhamdulillah 33 times Allahu Akbar 34 times and that is a total of 100 times, and this is the dua a dikkat, that in the sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught or the EOB Allahu Anhu and felt the model the Allahu Ana, his daughter, and he said to them, before you sleep, see Subhan Allah 33 Alhamdulillah 33 Allahu Akbar 33 for their leikam how you let
go ma'am Harden, this would be better for you than a sleeve and a sleeve in the house. He helps fulfill daily activities and so on. For Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam is telling him you will have enough strength and energy with this liquid that you won't even need a sleeve to do daily work at home. And so this liquor as I said, it gives you energy to fulfill daily activities, and also spiritual worships, then my brothers and sisters in Islam, once you've energized yourself with this Likud and you've mentioned La Hawla, wala Quwata illa, Allah Subhan, Allah Alhamdulillah Allahu Akbar, afterwards be realistic, set realistic goals, not for the rest of Ramadan, I'm saying for
every single day that you're going to live, especially now these days of Ramadan. So as soon as you wake up in the morning, what do you got? What do you want to achieve of worship during this day, set a plan. If it's reading five pages of the Quran, right? I will read five pages of the Quran. You don't have to finish the Quran. Some people, they have this journey, expectation that they want to get to, but it's not realistic for them. I want to finish the whole who has never finished the Quran in any other month outside of Ramadan. And then at the end, once we come into the fifth sixth day, realizes I haven't read the six issues that I need to be reading so I can complete the whole out at
the end of the month.
And then that's it he gives up or she gives up. This is a problem. So if you don't if it's not realistic that you're going to finish the Quran at the end of Ramadan, set something, any a target that you will reach, if it's half issues, 10 pages, five pages, and remember in the V sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I have Amelie Elahi Duomo, our income, the most beloved deeds to Allah Beloved, this is something Allah loves from the servant are the deeds that are consistent, even if they were minimal, even if they are small. It is better for you to read a page of the Quran for the rest of your life
for the rest of your life, be consistent on that. Then to read the entire Quran 10 times only a Ramadan and then the tip T later you don't see the Quran. After that. Understand my brothers and sisters in Islam, this laziness sometimes we bring it upon ourselves because we set unrealistic goals. And then at the end of the day, of course he cannot achieve it. Therefore, laziness kicks in. But if you plan your day and your night of Ramadan with things that you're able to do, then you will be able to find some energy in yourself. Sit out so when Saturday Sunday comes, for example, maybe there's extra time you have on Saturday and Sunday plan to read more of the Quran. On that day,
attending solid total we had demonstrated or praying it at home anyway, try to be realistic in your goals and that is one of the practical ease that removes and separates you from laziness. We ask Allah azza wa jal to grant us all strength and ability that we worship Him in a manner pleasing theme SubhanaHu wa Tada Allahu Allah.
