Smilla Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Allah Allah He also here's mine, my brothers and sisters in Islam in Surah tell Maresh Allah subhanahu wa taala mentions one of the qualities of the believers. A very important quality. He Subhanahu wa Taala says, When Levina hoomin Or there will be him Mushfiq own. The believers are those who, when it comes to either them or beat him to the punishment of the Lord, they are Mushfiq goon they are fearful, they are worried, they are scared, they are terrified of the punishment of Allah subhanho wa taala. Why in their Barbie him or your moon, because the punishment of the Lord, they are unsafe from it, no one among us can say I am

00:00:46--> 00:01:32

guaranteed that I will never enter Allah's punishment, nor will I ever taste Allah's punishment. No one is guaranteed this we cannot say this among each other. Therefore, one of the qualities of the believers is that they are fearful and they are terrified of Allah subhanahu Attalus punishment. This is a feeling that is supposed to live in the hearts of believers. This is something that makes you and I believers, that we are afraid of Allah subhanho wa Taala this punishment, how come there are Muslims that live on Allah's Earth? And they walk around, they commit murder, they kill others. They commit Zina and libera and sin after sin and they don't care. They don't care about Allah azza

00:01:32--> 00:02:13

wa jal is punishment, and their attitude when they commit the sins, as though Allah's punishment doesn't exist, or as though this kind of quality doesn't exist in their heart. No, my brothers and sisters in Islam This is wrong. I believe that is supposed to be afraid of Allah azza wa jal is punishment, when he's doing the righteous deeds and when he's committing a sin. And that's the only thing that is going to keep you away from a sin and keep you engaged in worship. When you're always conscious of Allah azza wa jal is punishment. Allah subhanho wa taala. When he described the believers that wake up at night, he said that the GFS you know boom and in Malaysia, he described

00:02:13--> 00:02:57

the quality of the believers he said that the Jaffa you know, boom and in Malaysia, that there are signs moves away from the bed that the Jaffa meaning to move away. And mobile Asia is the bed where people rest. The believers are people who move their sights away from the bed, meaning they wake up. At the end of the night or some part of the night. He had the rune or a bone. They call out to the Lord in SONET into the thicket. They engage in worship at night, how often Wattana out of fee of Allah's punishment, and hoping for His mercy and forgiveness and the reward of the paradise. This is the believer, he's between these two qualities he has fear of Allah subhanaw taala is punishment in

00:02:57--> 00:03:41

his heart alive. And this was mentioned before hoping in Allah's mercy and forgiveness. So this is what got the believers up at night. And we need to be conscious of this quality. You need to live on earth. And Allah knows and the fear of Allah's punishment needs to be active in your heart. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam act, act as though there is fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala this punishment in your heart, every time you approach a sin, that fee should keep you away from it. Every time you're not is lazy, to commit an obligate or to engage in an obligation. You're feeling like leaving the prayer or leaving something that is obligatory in your deen. The fear of Allah's

00:03:41--> 00:04:28

punishment, alive in your heart will wake you up and keep you away from this. This is a quality of Eban This is a quality of believers, and for such people be evening Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala allows them to do the good. And my brothers and sisters in Islam, fearing Allah's punishment shouldn't be the negative kind of fee. Negative kind of fee. it cripples a person. He is turned away from worship, too much fear in Allah subhanho wa Taala keeps a person depressed and it makes him lose hope in Allah azza wa jal has mercy that's not the fee we're speaking about. Positive fear of Allah azza wa jal is the fee that helps you and encourages you to continue down the street path that

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

allows you to keep away from sin and keeps you motivated and committed on the path of worshipping Allah subhanahu wa taala. That's the kind of feed that we want. And so these are the pillars of worshiping Allah. These are the pillars, that you worship Allah out of love, first and foremost, and then out of fear of his punishment, hoping in his mercy. If you balance this out, you live a perfect life. And Allah subhanho wa Taala gives you the ability to continue to worship Him. We ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to forgive our sins, we asked him SubhanaHu wa ala teens

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

still within us the true fie of him subhanho wa Taala in the whole New Delhi Kolkata rally or SallAllahu wasallam Agha Khan and Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germaine
