00:02:28--> 00:02:37

this episode, we would like to touch a very significant reminder

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

for those people

00:02:40--> 00:02:41

who are

00:02:43--> 00:02:50

there to perform hajj and they have performed Hajj and they are now going and leaving back to their homes.

00:02:51--> 00:03:15

We know that the sense of elevation in terms of spirituality, the empowerment of demand, the spirit of Islam, the eagerness to follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam the zeal of the obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:16--> 00:03:23

it is on high level high spirits right after you perform Hajj.

00:03:24--> 00:03:26

But as soon as you go back

00:03:28--> 00:03:42

you try and tend inclined towards that which is not liked by Allah subhanaw taala so this episode is concerning. A very significant question

00:03:43--> 00:03:56

and that is how to maintain spirituality after performing hajj or how to maintain our spirituality, post Hajj.

00:03:57--> 00:04:12

Do brothers and sisters we need to realize and understand that Islam is for all time. Islam is not is not a part time religion. Islam is not a seasonal way of life. It is an a way of life from cradle to great.

00:04:13--> 00:04:28

Allah subhanho wa Taala states very clearly in Surah Allah Moran surah number three number 102 Johan de Xena Amano, O you who believe in Allah fear Allah have caught him as he should be feared, one

00:04:29--> 00:04:36

Illa one two Muslim and die not except in the state of Muslim.

00:04:37--> 00:04:43

So Allah subhanho wa Taala expects us to die as Muslim. So we

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

those who perform Hajj you need to make sure my brothers and sisters that you maintain the same or similar level of spirituality, post Hajj. So what are those tips?

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

That will help

00:05:02--> 00:05:13

us to maintain the same level of spirituality even after Hajj. The first thing that you need to do my dear brothers and sisters

00:05:14--> 00:05:38

in order to maintain your spirituality after Hajj is unique to have this conscious understanding that you have to fight against shaitan all the time. This is the first thing because you need to understand the nature of shaitan. The nature of shaitan is that he is very patient,

00:05:39--> 00:06:12

yet he is very committed, he is desperate and he is dead, determined to deviate you. But he waits. He says okay, this of Allah, the servant of Allah, the slave of Allah, let him perform Hajj with all sincerity, let him perform all the rights of Hajj, sincerely let him be in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala until he completes the Hajj. But as soon as he goes back, as soon as you go back Monday, brothers and sisters, to your home, he attacks

00:06:14--> 00:07:05

he attacks. And that is the time that you need to fight against rate on mark these words, mark my words, my brothers and sisters, that we are at war, we are at war all the time against shavon. You have to wage a war against shaitaan. Think about it. What was your excitement level? What was your interest level? What was your zeal? What was your energy? What were you What was your understanding? When you were taking the stones and pelting on the site on? What was it with only eagerness with all determination, you fighting against it? remembering that Ibrahim Ali salam, he fought against a thought and you follow that sooner. But when you come back, even then you have to fight against

00:07:06--> 00:07:11

Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala declares in the Koran

00:07:13--> 00:07:14

in who

00:07:16--> 00:07:50

he is to use an open enemy to treat him as your enemy. How do you treat your enemy, you're always in fight, you're always at war, you're always trying you always try to defeat him to refuse him the correct one. And that's not easy. You have to be in the obedience of Allah subhanaw taala Otherwise, the moment when you perform hajj and then when you come back to home, when you come back shaytan attacks and if you don't fight back, you get again indulge in the same pattern that you were before.

00:07:51--> 00:08:30

So nobody would like to get into the same model of expression, the same model of living in order to maintain your spirituality. Number one, my dear brothers and sisters, you need to fight against shutdown. Number two, you need to establish Salah there is no better way to increase and improve your spirituality and maintain your spirituality than Salah. Salah is the divine link between you and the Creator. When you are in constant touch with a lot of pantalla when you are in the remembrance, through the Salah, through the establishment of Salah

00:08:31--> 00:09:02

then your spirits will be maintained high and that is very significant. Reba, my brothers and sisters, it is the first proclamation It is the first manifestation. It is the first proof of your claim that you said law a law in the law after tawheed you have to make Salah you have to establish a law and to Salah to the establishment of Salah you actually maintain the spirituality level. Hi

00:09:03--> 00:09:53

dear brothers and sisters you need to understand that Salah it prevents you from immorality and wrong. Allah subhanaw taala says into the ankle boots are number 29 and number 45 in salata, tanha and in fascia he will monger indeed, Salah prayer prevents you to get you from in morality and wrong. So if you are protected from immorality and wrong, then obviously your spiritual behind. So establishments of Salah is one of the best tips that you have to implement and practice after Hajj. The third thing that will make and keep your spirituality level maintained and higher is the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

You see, during Hajj, you always remember last palitana

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

You remember him. When praying, you will remember him by doing Vicar. You remember him by doing tawaf. You remember him by asking do you remember him while doing sorry, you remember him by sacrificing your own hair. You remember him through various means and ways. When you go back home, you need to make sure that you remember Allah in order to make your heart satisfied. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, in Surah Surah Surah number 13. And we're 28 and busy. karela he talked to my inner loop with the remembrance of Allah do hearts find serenity, peace, satisfaction, contentment.

00:10:47--> 00:10:48

You see you feel

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

full in your heart,

00:10:53--> 00:11:05

with the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala. So the way you used to remember Allah, remember Allah even after Hajj, and that helps you to maintain your spirituality level higher.

00:11:06--> 00:11:11

It helps you The fourth thing, my dear brothers and sisters, that helps

00:11:12--> 00:11:49

you to maintain your spirituality level higher is making dua and seeking stefarr and doing stuff are your brothers and sisters. Never ever underestimate the power of dwara never underestimate the power of seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala Never underestimate the power of repentance Subhan Allah, Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Baqarah surah number two and number 186 when my servant asked you, concerning me, tell them I am new to them.

00:11:51--> 00:12:25

When they asked me, I will respond to them directly. You don't need any intermediary you don't need any mediator. Directly Allah answers you make dua make drama brothers and sisters as you used to make law during Hajj and this helps you to be in touch with Allah subhanaw taala and that helps your spirituality level higher. Do you brothers and sisters you need to make stuff are the way you used to do during Hajj in order to make your spirituality higher and better.

00:12:27--> 00:13:01

Keep doing so far. For you know for sure that every single day we commit sin, day and night we commit sin no matter how good we are, we are we are disobey Allah subhanaw taala intentionally or unintentionally, unintentionally, deliberately or in deliberately, we this will be your last panel to make sure that you make stuff up and that helps you to maintain your spirituality even after hatch. The last thing My dear brothers and sisters that helps you to maintain your spirituality higher and

00:13:04--> 00:13:19

Allah subhanho wa Taala he helps to Hodge to remind us in a practical sense that we all will be gathered that we all will be gathered after we die Allah subhanaw taala in reasonable life, and we will be gathered

00:13:20--> 00:13:21

in Yokohama

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

we are going to depart this world

00:13:25--> 00:13:34

we are going to depart this world for sure. So we need to submit to Allah subhanaw taala completely and we need to make sure

00:13:35--> 00:13:36

that we die

00:13:37--> 00:13:59

as Muslims. I would like to end this episode with an ayah with which I began my talk from psoralen Ron surah number three and 102 yada yada Xena Amano, oh you believe it? Allah, Fear Allah, how God toccata as he should be fear, one atom butanna illa

00:14:00--> 00:14:10

and die not except as Muslims, except the one who submits his will to Allah subhanho wa Taala
