Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, my brothers and sisters in Islam Alhamdulillah for Allah has fever upon us. We are still living in these beautiful sacred days of the sacred month of Rajab ask Allah azza wa jal to allow us to reach Ramadan, and to bless our actions and our deeds in Ramadan. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, I wanted to bring your attention to something very important. And I'll begin with the example. You know the fish, if it was removed from its environment, which is the water in the ocean, what happens to that fish? If you observe it closely, you will find that he shakes and he trembles violently

00:00:43--> 00:01:32

because it's panicking. It's worried that he's going to be the end of its life. Why because it was removed from its environment. Similarly, my brothers and sisters in Islam, the human being is created. Allah subhanahu wa taala has made for for us an environment that we are supposed to embrace and engage with and remain in. And that is the environment of Iman and Islam and the Quran Allah subhanahu wata either we our entire body, including our heart and our mind, was created to fulfill La Ilaha illa Allah. So the moment you abandon the Corolla, if you move away from the Quran, from sila to Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, if you move away from the crolla, from the prayers from

00:01:32--> 00:02:21

fasting, from the circles of knowledge, if you move away from this, your state is going to be that like of a fish that has been removed from the ocean and the water Allahu Akbar, the heart will shake, it will tremble, and nothing will bring tranquility and peace and comfort to the heart of a human being other than him returning to his environment, which is Victrola, which is Allah Eman. This is our environment.

So use this month and the days that remain in this month and the month that comes after Shabbat and Ramadan. Use these bliss days to work on bringing yourself back to the environment that you are created for. Once you find your environment and you sit in the gardens of Eman the evening there you will find comfort be if you learn you will find peace and tranquility Subhanallah and that my brothers and sisters in Islam does not mean

that a committed believer will not be tested and will not go through moments of stress and calamity and difficulty. No. It just means that the believer who is in the environment of Eman and has committed to righteousness almost definitely find stress in his life and calamities and difficulties and hardship. But he will be able to manage it really well. He'll be able to practice patience really well. Allah azza wa jal will give him the ability to do so.
