Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah He also be mine. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam. It's now been almost two weeks after Ramadan. And people after Ramadan are of two types. There is a type of people that completely stop their worship altogether. No more Quran, no fasting, no Salah court, new vicar, no attending the Masjid.
The obligatory prayers, they miss some they attend some. And such people are people that only know Allah azza wa jal in Ramadan and after Ramadan they do not know who Allah azza wa jal is, we ask Allah azza wa jal protection and we ask Allah azza wa jal to guide such people. And there's another type of Ramadan that excelled in their worship and they advance and they know to small changes in their life when it comes to worships and matters that Allah azza wa jal loves. And I want to help you by sharing with you a principle that alone amount Rahim Allah who would speak in terms of how does a person remained consistent upon worship after Ramadan,
Yanni the likes of Imam Ahmed and other imam in Islam, other scholars in Islam inspired by their words, they made a beautiful standard. And if you memorize this standard, and work towards implementing it in your life, this is how you can remain upright and firm and committed and steadfast after Ramadan. This standard says is a lack of equally noble man in kodra beat up the woman hooked on Pollack y la hit out very simple. And arena metal hammer home Allah said make for every matter of worship a standard for yourself make a standard. So when it comes to reading Quran, this is a worship make a standard in terms of how much are you going to read every day? And what
time are you going to read, make a standard for yourself, say I'm going to read
one juice, after Fisher, I'm going to read half issues. I'm going to read two pages of the Quran after fission. And I'm going to read the explanation and the seal of it. And I'm going to do this. That's your standard. Now you start with the standard be warming rule Tom Pollack, if you find energy at certain days, then you increase and you read more than two pages more than your standard. And if you don't find energy on a particular day, and you feel lazy, and you're turned away, then at least you don't go under your standard. So you'll continue to read those two pages of the Quran that you're committed to. And so the same thing will be saying for fasting, commit to something make a
standard, you're going to fast Monday, hollows because what is Monday and Thursday, and the best of the two days is Monday. So if you want to fast Monday, set a standard. That's it. If you find energy during the week, that you want to fast more than the Monday with Thursday with it, then do so. And if you don't find energy during that week, then you do Monday and you don't drop you don't go underneath the standard. This is what you're supposed to be doing for yourself set a standard. And so you do this with the night prayers with Saba God and with every other worship you know, and understand that the point of the Ramadan is that you remain consistent upon the worship, and that
you do not cut it all together. And then the beast sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, A hobble Amelie in Allah Eduardo, however, income, the most beloved deeds to Allah are those that are consistent, even if they were small. Consistency is the main thing doesn't matter. It's not about how much you worship Allah. It's about what are you going to do that's going to be consistent of worship. And this is something that Allah loves. So if you're consistent in your worship, even if it's small, then you are ready for death, because you are on a path that Allah loves. And remember my brothers and sisters in Islam, this path to Allah azza wa jal is long. It's going to be for as long as we are
alive. There are some people on this path that are running to Allah, and they got energy and they worship. There are some people walking, some people are crawling. You know, people are on all sorts of levels. But it doesn't matter what level you are. As long as you're on this path. You're consistent. You keep moving forward to Allah. That's what Allah has Zoysia loves and if you're consistent, you are prepared and ready for death. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep us firm and committed upon Islam. We asked him subhanho wa Taala to give us the ability and the strength to continue to worship Him until the day we meet him. Allahu Allah, wa sallahu wa salam O Allah, Allah
