My brothers and sisters, a lot of bronzer reminds us and told us that we need to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala in our lives for a main reason, because he is the one who created us. Obviously, the one who created us has the power has the right has is the deserving one to be worshipped.

And that's the only way that we may attain taqwa that we may attain righteousness and
piety. You know for Allah subhanahu wa taala so this key advice we need to ensure that from our life until we die, we need to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala
the second advice comes from Surah Baqarah surah number two i in number 42 where Allah subhanahu wa taala he says, What televisual haka bill bottle water to move on to the moon and do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth. While you know SubhanAllah. Again, we need to put this in the perspective of three A's as an action plan, we first acquired the understanding where Allah subhanaw taala is telling us and giving us an advice and instruction, that we should never ever mix the truth with falsehood meaning we should never, you know, mix the falsehood that is ignorance with something that is sound, something that is knowledgeable, you know, we need to ensure that we never

During the course of our lives, we should always make sure that we be on the truth, we live on the truth and we die and depart from this world with the truth insha Allah and that is La ilaha illa Allah and they need to advocate this as well to others because we see people out there that they actually mix this
truth with falsehood and they conceal the truth as well Subhan Allah, it is our duty to tell them and to give them advice from the Quran that should never, that they should never ever be, you know mixing the truth with falsehood, or we should and we should never, you know, conceal the truth rather we should proclaim the truth in our lives.
The third advice comes from Surah Al Baqarah surah number two Ayah number 44. Wherein Allah subhanho wa Taala says morona, NASA Bill, Bill Murray, what tone Sona own for second? Do you order righteousness of the people and forget yourselves? Again, let's put it in the perspective of three A's as an action plan, we acquired the understanding what is that that we are acquiring, that we should always do ourselves and then, you know, advise people, or we should also advise people while we are striving to do that good, this is the understanding that we should always keep in mind that we should never ever forget ourselves, you know, and, and, and try to, you know, invite people to
that which we are, we have no intention, no struggle, no effort to actually practice on. So that is the first thing that we need to acquire. We need to apply this in our lives. Whenever we are inviting, we should do our best. You know, if that's completely not possible, that's okay. But we need to strive and try to make sure that we, with what which we are actually inviting people to righteousness, we should also we should also practice by ourselves and that's the, you know, third A, which is advocate when we advocate people, and when we practice that which we advocate about the righteousness, then that is a very powerful, you know, advocacy. That is a very powerful way of
preaching in the law he to Allah. The fourth advice comes from Surah Baqarah. Again, surah number two Ayah number 45, in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says, was there he knew the Sabri was Salah, and seek help through patience and prayer. Again, acquire this understanding that whenever you are in trouble whenever you need help, and we know we always need Allah help, the formula that we need to understand and acquire this understanding from the advice of this neuron is that we should seek the help through patience and prayer and apply it in our lives whenever we face difficulty whenever we have ease. Whenever we have, you know, things which we are going through, we need to ensure that
we practice and apply in our lives this advice of, you know, being patient and prayer, these two things, when it is applied, it is very, very powerful. And then obviously we need to advocate it. We need to tell our wife, our children, our parents, our sisters, brothers, and the rest of that you know what the formula for you to seek the help of Allah. Allah himself says, was there No, Miss Sabri was salah and seek help through patience, and prayer. The fifth advise my beloved brothers and sisters, comes from the Koran and that is from Surah Al Baqarah surah. Number two is number 60, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, will not die, so fill out the most serene and do not commit
abuse on the earth. Spreading corruption. Again, we need to acquire this understanding that we should be the people who knows that the corruption and abusing the earth is absolutely a criminal act, and we should avoid it. We need to apply in our lives by not spreading corruption facade on the face of the earth. And we also need to advocate this fact that is to make sure that we never ever be among those who are demoscene we should always be among those who should be Muslim in not Muslim, Muslim serene. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to help us again to apply this beautiful advice as well in our lives and to help us to practice this and to you know, promote this advice to others as well.
The sixth advice comes from the Koran from Surah, two Baccarat so number two is number 127, in which Allah subhanaw taala he says the robina Taco Bell Mina in neck anta Samuel Lim Our Lord, accept this from us indeed you are to hearing and the knowing again, acquire this understanding that whenever you do good, whenever you perform something that is good, something that is righteous, something that is pious, always ask Allah to accept it. This is the understanding that we always need to develop to we need to apply it in our lives. Whenever we say we pray whenever we give charity whenever we
You know, read the Quran, whenever we do any good act which goes in line with the Quran and the teachings of Prophet salallahu alaihe salam to please Allah subhanaw taala we should always read this law, and that is the law that helps us to ensure that our efforts brings results by the acceptance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And of course, we need to advocate this again, to people out there to our own people, who should always understand that when we do something that is good, it is the help of Allah, with which we are able to do that is good, it is not a matter, it is not a point of pride that we are doing that and you know, so and so, you know, in terms of goodness, we should
always be humble, and have that humility for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala that intention to be sincere to Allah subhanho wa Taala that understanding that we should always promote that when ever we do anything that is good, we should ask a lot to accept it. Because indeed, if we do so many things, and if Allah is not accepting what we are doing, then all the struggle, all the efforts becomes pointless, and have no sense in our lives. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept our efforts, whatever we do, to please and to draw closeness with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Another advice that comes from the Quran from Surah Al Baqarah. Again, Surah Al Baqarah surah number two,
number 141, where Allah subhanahu wa tada he says, voila, to aluna Americano, Yama loon, and you will not be asked about what they used to do. Meaning when we again, we need to, again, put this into perspective of three A's as an action plan, acquire this understanding a lot of us we actually get this understanding either from our own side or from we we get to hear from people that you know, our forefathers, they used to do so and so. And that's why we are doing, you know, our, our elders, they used to do so and so and that's why we are doing truth will always remain truth, even if our forefathers did it, or they did not do it. So we need to ensure at this first acquire this

And this is the understanding that we need to acquire to we need to also practice this, apply it in our lives, that we are responsible for our own actions, and they were responsible for their own actions, and our children will be responsible once they become adults, for their own actions. I have to you know, be accountable for my own actions. Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters, we need to apply this formula and advise in our lives as well and also advocate, advocate and promote this advice, this beautiful piece of
advice to others, those who actually try to find and follow blindly people because only they were the forefathers, you know, the whether it be customs or traditions, or something that even if they go against the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala, we should advocate this beautiful piece of advice that they will never be questioned about us and we will never be questioned about them, they will be asked what they used to do.
The eight piece of advice that comes from the Quran again from Surah Baqarah surah. Number two is number 156. A lot of binaries that he says in the law he was in NA la he Raja own indeed we belong to Allah and indeed to Him we will return acquire this understanding my brothers and sisters, this is very powerful and profound. We all need to acquire and attain this understanding that we all belong to Allah, and ultimately it is to him our return. Right? When we have this understanding, Subhana Allah, our lives become so beautiful, and so content, that we basically always have this notion in our lives, this principle in our lives, that you know, no matter what I may lose in this
dunya I belong to Allah and I shall be returned to him. So this is something the life of this dunya which is very temporary, which is going to end and this is how we apply this understanding this beautiful piece of advice in our lives by saying in LA he was in LA he Roger own and we also advocate this powerful teaching
Beautiful advice from the Quran that people should also understand that undoubtedly, we and everything that belongs to us and everyone belongs to us, every one of us we belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala and indeed to him, we shall return.
Another advice that comes from Surah Al Baqarah. So number two is number 168 where Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Yeah yohannes gooloo mimma fill out of the halonen de bon wala quwata shaitan in hola como una de como bien. De La La is giving us an advice in terms of, we should be eating whatever is on Earth, that is lawful and good. We should always make sure my brothers and sisters in order for us to be productive Muslims in order for us to be people who are pleased by Allah subhanho wa Taala we should always eat that which is lawful, which means that which is halal, and that which is pious, which is good, and we should never ever followed the footsteps of shaitan now many times it happens
so that we actually you know, own something that is haram and we actually eat out of it. So perhaps the the food that we eat, it might not be haram but the earnings that comes with that is not allowed. So we need to ensure that we always keep in mind this formula of the Quran the beautiful advice from from the Quran, that is we should always go for something that is lawful and good, even if it's little, it will give you the blessing, it will give you the the taste the fruits that will be well satisfied, far more better and superior than that which is unlawful and that which is you know, not good and we should always ensure that we do not follow the footsteps of shaitan
my brothers and sisters another advice again comes from Surah Al Baqarah surah number two I am number 188 Allah subhanho wa Taala he says one cu m walakum ballyknocken bill Bothell and do not consume one another's wealth unjustly Subhana Allah again we need to acquire this understanding this powerful and very relevant piece of advice that comes from the Quran in a time where we see that people they eat up each other's property unjustly they try to you know, you know manipulate the wills, they try to you know

We need to acquire this understanding that we Allah gives us the advice that we should never ever eat up each other's property unjustly apply this in our lives, whenever you get into a situation where somebody is right has to be given, be fair and be fearful, be conscious of Allah subhanaw taala and be just in terms of, you know, distribution of that wealth and advocated as well. Perhaps there are many among our own family members who do not have this notion this understanding this piece of advice from the Quran that it is absolutely unlawful to eat up each other's property and justly We
ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us that which is pure, which is good and which is just as well and let our hands distribute that which is always fair. And just for every one of us.
Another piece of advice comes from Surah Al Baqarah surah number two, I am number 216. where Allah subhanho wa Taala he says what I said Takahashi
what I said to hibu Shang wahoo shabu la comme la jolla, Allah
tala moon, Allah subhanaw taala he says a beautiful teaching, but perhaps you hate the thing and it is good for you. And perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah knows one you know not we need to acquire this powerful teaching my brothers and sisters and we all face this kind of situation. You know in our lives. Sometimes we hate to thing but it turned out to be good because Allah planet so and sometimes we love a thing. And it is actually bad for us. That's why we don't get it. So we need to rely and trust Allah subhanho dialer and this comes in terms of our application once we gain this understanding
This, this, once we acquire this, this concept that, you know, we might hate a thing and it's good for you.
And sometimes we love a thing, and it's bad for you, you know, Allah is all aware of everything, and we do not have that kind of knowledge. So we need to apply that in our lives by trusting Allah subhanho wa Taala by trusting the decisions that Allah takes in our lives, by trusting and relying on Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is indeed one of the powerful advices from the Quran. And once we have that understanding and application in our lives, we need to advocate it to others as well. We need to tell people don't worry, if you hate the thing, you know, perhaps, and it does happen to you. It is it is some thing that is good for you in sha Allah, and sometimes you love a thing so
much, but you don't get it, end in sight of Allah subhanaw taala perhaps it's bad for you. So be happy. And what I mean will always have a win win situation, Subhan Allah, and that's what we need to advocate to people.
Another piece of advice comes from Surah Al Baqarah surah. Number two is number 220. where Allah Subhana Allah says ways aluna chi niyama Islam
and they ask you about orphans say improvement for them as best treatment to the orphans in Islam is highly, you know, encouraged to be dealt in the best manner. And we need to acquire this understanding my brothers and sisters, perhaps there are many among guru, our own family, you know, among all our own relatives, who are actually orphans, we need to take care of them, we need to sponsor them, we need to help them and give them that which they actually desire and deserve somehow to love. And we need to and that's how we basically apply this beautiful piece of advice in our lives. And if we are not able to also due to whatever limitations that we have, we need to advocate
it to others, you know, we need to advocate and promote this beautiful advice to others, perhaps others are able to do so what we can't do, and Allah does not put you know, something which we cannot bear. So we need to advocate this beautiful teaching to take care of orphans and that's the legacy that we can actually leave behind by taking care of orphans. And this is indeed one of the greatest acts of that is prescribed in the Quran.
Another piece of advice from the Quran is Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and he says, Allah who were other factors elu
aneesa A Phil Mohave. One Takara boo nahata, a Aparna a lot of laryssa he says say it is haram. So keep away from wives during menstruation and do not approach them until they are pure. This is we need to acquire as a mature people and understanding that when our women are impure, it is unlawful for us to approach them and until they actually get pure. And we need to practice this in our lives, my beloved brothers and sisters in order for us to gain that consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we need to advocate it as well to others, those who do not know perhaps they have never read this ayah but have this understanding this piece of advice is not come across in their lives,
where Allah gives guidance for that which is pure for that which is good for that which is you know,
best for us in our lives. So we need to ensure that
our understanding of the Quran is Subhana Allah that it prescribes that which is pure and perfect.
Allah subhanho wa Taala also gives a piece of advice in the Quran in Surah Al Baqarah surah number two i in number 233 where Allah subhanho wa Taala says one walidah to you they are na na hoona hoonah how Lainey calm Elaine. Mothers may breastfed, you know their children to complete yours. Now this is again very simple
potent and very powerful for our selves to acquire as an understanding that it is always important and recommended and this is something which comes as a piece of advice for every, you know, mother to give the breastfeed their children, you know for two complete years and obviously this needs to be applied as well for the practical application of the advice from the Quran and we need to advocate it as well among our own people to apply to to follow and to pay heed to this beautiful advice and there are so many benefits that we can actually you know, get when we actually do the application of this beautiful advice from the Quran.
Another piece of advice that comes from the Quran is from Surah Al Baqarah surah number two i and number 256.
Allah subhanho wa Taala he says la ikura hafi Deen.
Allah says there is there shall be no compulsion in acceptance of the religion. This comes for those who are not yet Muslims, we, as Muslims cannot force anyone, we have no right to, you know, push any people to accept Islam. It is Allah who guides people, it is the it is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala for people to be guided. But we need to acquire this understanding that we should never, ever put a compulsion on people to accept the religion and we should apply it in our lives by practicing it to ensure that we fulfill and practice this command in our lives. And we need to tell people as well advocate this beautiful advice because upon Allah Islam itself means submission to
Allah subhanho wa Taala we know submission cannot be done by compulsion, submission comes from your heart, that inclination that comes from your heart cannot be forced by anyone. You cannot incline and force people to incline their, their inner selves to Allah subhanho wa Taala it has to come from a lot of binaries. It has to be initiated wholly and solely by that individual. It is his wish, it is His will. It is his personal decision that takes it into
the acceptance of the religion. So my beloved brothers and sisters, it is important for us to pay heed to all these advices from the Quran. Indeed these advisors are from directly from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we know when it comes from Allah, it is pure, it is powerful, it is productive, it protects us and it is always permanent in terms of benefiting us not just in this life, but the hereafter as well. We ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to grant the understanding that helps us to gain these things in our lives in a practical way. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us and help us to acquire this beautiful advises mentioned in the Quran. Help us to apply it in
our lives and help us to advocate it to others as well so that we may fulfill our duty as a Muslim for the humanity was Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh aka Ivana and in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen
