Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim hamdulillah Hello I've been alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah while leaving your SOP be humane.

00:00:10--> 00:00:20

As to what follows my dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam. I wanted to share with you a very important message.

00:00:22--> 00:01:15

And this it concerns every Muslim we should all be aware of this. And we're LML Allahu Allah, the said that keeping away from that which Allah subhanho wa Taala prohibited and finding your desire and your knifes against the hot arm and against the sins is much better than engaging in nowhere fill in voluntary good deeds. And this is something that I shall be Allah one here mentioned. And Hassan Ali Allahu anhu mentioned Omar and Abdul Aziz and Raja Ibrahim of Allah, and so many of our Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala restore his mercy upon them. And why did they say this? Why is it the fact that keeping away from prohibitions in keeping away from the hot arm, fighting yourself to

00:01:15--> 00:02:14

stay away from the hot arm and since that is better than engaging in nowhere fill fasting the days and praying nights and reading or earn and all the voluntary deeds. Why is that the case? This is because keeping away from prohibitions, keeping away from the Haram is a wedgie. It's obligatory to keep away from how long and the visa Allah wa alayhi wa sallam He said, If then I hate to Comanche in fish, Denny bow. If I was to forbid you of something, then keep away from it. When the V Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran he says in Surah tel and I am one at the global power html vahana min hair, why my bottom? Allah azza wa jal he said do not come ne alpha haish sins do not come need the

00:02:14--> 00:02:17

major sins. Melville Haram in her

00:02:18--> 00:02:23

public sins and private sins, don't come need them at all.

00:02:24--> 00:03:00

So how Allah Yanni Allah Zoysia did not say, don't do the sins, He said Don't come near them. So keeping away from prohibitions is an obligation. It's worship, that we keep away from sins, while doing voluntary deeds, such as fasting Mondays and Thursdays, or praying some of the night reading or and these are voluntary deeds. Doing voluntary deeds will always remain voluntary, it is not obligatory.

00:03:01--> 00:03:57

Therefore, keeping away from sins is an obligation. And this is much better than engaging in voluntary deeds because voluntary deeds always remain Mr. hub, a recommended practice and a recommended matter. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, the one who keeps away from the Haram, the one who keeps away from Xena, from alcohol, from a Riba from gambling, from dressing immodestly, the one who keeps away from stealing wealth, the one who keeps away from deception and cheating and lying and fraud, all of this harm all of these prohibitions, the one who keeps away from them, and he fights himself against these sins and Mujahidin, he is much better than the one who is engaged in

00:03:57--> 00:03:58

voluntary deeds.

00:03:59--> 00:04:20

Because the one who's keeping away from the prohibitions is doing an obligation by keeping away from them. And the one who's doing voluntary deeds is only doing something that is recommended and it is not what it is not obligatory. So how to look for you must understand this principle, my brothers and sisters in his

00:04:21--> 00:04:59

alma mater, Abdelaziz wahala. He said, Lisa, de bois de amor Laila Wasserman the hell, he said, taqwa is not about the voluntary deeds. It's not about fasting the days the summoner days. And it's not about praying the Knights are more of an Abdelaziz. He said, rather a dakwah or the oma thiruvalla whatever Kuma harmala. He said true taqwa is to do that which Allah obligated us to do that which Allah commanded us to do. And truth up what is to keep away

00:05:00--> 00:05:15

From allowing them to keep away from the house because that's an obligation. Like my brothers and sisters in Islam, the one who keeps away from the Halong and fights his knifes to keep away from the Halong

00:05:16--> 00:05:26

and fight is knifes to keep away from the evil desires and temptation such a person is rewarded. He's given how senad he's rewarded any

00:05:27--> 00:05:38

FOCA, her or him or her Milan scholars or flipper, when they defined a harm when they defined on how long they said that it is.

00:05:39--> 00:05:53

Or they said that your variable their Riku hair while you're on Cabo fare, elucha. And how long the definition of how long is that the one who keeps away from it is rewarded. He's given how senad

00:05:55--> 00:06:15

and the one who commits them, earns siet. For you need to keep this understanding in your heart and in your mind present. Whenever you're faced with a desire or a sin. Understand that when you fight your enough's, to keep away from a sin, you are being rewarded.

00:06:16--> 00:06:25

You are being rewarded. Not only because you're obeying laws command, who said to you keep away from the sin, but because you're also

00:06:27--> 00:07:02

exercising patience, because it requires patience to stay away from the how long it requires patience, for you're rewarded. Now, understand this, my brothers and sisters in Islam. Finally, I share with you one more thing. And that is I don't want you to understand this message wrong, and that we are belittling or saying that voluntary deeds are insignificant No, when either we let I'm not trying to give you this message. And I will say at the end, that we must also keep in mind that voluntary deeds are very important.

00:07:03--> 00:07:06

fasting days and praying the nights reading

00:07:08--> 00:07:50

charity, and all these voluntary deeds are important. Why are they important? A person must never ever neglect these completely, because from the benefit of voluntary deeds is that they wipe away the bad deeds that accumulate upon us after we have disobeyed Allah so vision. So yes, keeping away from the prohibition is much better than engaging in voluntary deeds. But we need to do the voluntary deeds so that it wipes away the bad deeds that we have. After we have disobeyed Allah subhanho wa Taala. For my brothers and sisters in Islam, next time you're faced with a sin.

00:07:51--> 00:08:41

Next time you're alone, thinking of committing a sin and your desire is growing. Think, think that a law social is watching you. And if you keep away from it, and you fight yourself, and Allah Zoysia knows your struggle, you will be rewarded and you earn her Senate. And if one law he if you fight your knifes the entire night to keep away from the harm that is much better than a person that is standing and praying overnight law. Why? Because the ones standing and praying overnight is doing something that is voluntary. He's doing something that is Mr. hub, it's recommended while you spend your night doing something that is obligatory and that is fighting yourself to stay away from the

00:08:41--> 00:08:42

sins.

00:08:43--> 00:09:17

I asked a lot of social that he opened our hearts and that he cleans he opens our hearts to the meanings of the urn, and to the meanings of the sooner and that he cleanse our heart from every fuel fee, attribute and treat and quality. We asked him subhanho wa Taala to bestow upon us His mercy and to grant us His forgiveness in the holy Veliko father Ali sallallahu wasallam Obamacare Elena you know hammered while early he also be Ashmolean, which is como la jolla, la
