All praise and thanks belong to Allah the Most High, we thank him and we seek His help and aid and we asked him that he forgives us and we seek His refuge from the evil of ourselves in the sense that we commit. Indeed whomsoever Allah guides, no one can lead us astray. And whomsoever Allah leads astray, no one can guide neither witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone. That Mohammed Salah Allahu Allah, He will send them is to slave and messenger. Indeed, the best of speech is that of the book of Allah. And the best of guidance is that of Mohammed Salah Lavalle will send them and the words the religious matters are those that are innovated, and every religious
innovation is a bit and every bit of ice misguidance and every misguidance will be in hellfire.
Less than a month has passed since the conclusion of the month of Ramadan.
And maybe we are noticing or we are wondering, after the passage of the month, we're noticing that our commitment, our spirituality, our proximity to Allah subhanho wa Taala is not worried to work. When we were in the middle of the month of Ramadan. We were when we were enjoying the blessings of the month of Ramadan.
And we might be wondering why or how to retrieve some, if not all some of that proximity to Allah subhana wa Taala into our lives. Now to notice a difference between how we lived and existed within the month of Ramadan and outside of it to notice some difference is normal. Because even the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he used to receive the month of Ramadan, he would intensify his acts of worship, and that would transform him. So a lot of you it was seldom so that he would even increase more in his acts of worship. So the Sahaba the companions of Muhammad, they would notice that something has happened, something extra is happening.
That said, it's also ordered shouldn't be the case that we would exist as different as different human beings, inside the month of Ramadan and outside of it. Very spiritual, very religious, very committed very close to the masjid in the month of Ramadan. And the opposite of that outside the month of Ramadan, remembering Allah in the month of Ramadan, but not so outside the month of Ramadan.
So what do we do?
What is the solution
to that double life that we might be living?
Well, our situation could be similar
to that man who came to the Messenger of Allah, Allah you and he was sitting with a complaint with a problem that he wanted a solution for.
Mr. Amato, our tirmidhi for Arizona law in the Shara islamicate catani. He says oh messenger of Allah, the Sherry as of Islam, the commandments of Islam. Quite the obligations and the recommended and the prohibited and the hated and all of that surely as of Islam had become overwhelming.
For me, so for this particular individual, they have become overwhelming.
the ambreen. Jeremy is telling me about one thing that I can hold on to.
With all of these things that are overwhelming me Tell me about the one thing that I can hold on to. And another narration it says a comprehensive thing. So what did the messenger sallallahu wasallam offer him as advice? He says colonizer Listen, karatbar mimicry.
It says your tongue should continue to be moist because of remembering Allah. Your tongue should continue to be moist, because you are continuously remembering Allah subhana wa that Now why is that? So? Let us understand why the messenger is a lot it's a lot easier it was seldom recommended the remembrance of Allah. When you notice when you examine all our acts of worship from beginning to end, all of them are dedicated the intention the end goal of all of that is the remembrance of Allah subhana wa.
What Allah subhanho wa Taala says
in any Angela hula either Hi, Lana Boudin you are
speaking to Musa alayhis salam to Moses.
He says in any annaleigh I am Allah there is no one who deserves to be worshipped except I for a booty so worship me. Welcome is solid. For what purpose is
to establish the saga performed the saga for what purpose so that you would remember me? decree ID that qurani was correct. So that you would remember me and I would remember you.
And in fact, Allah subhana wa tada calls this for now so Dr. Juma licola. Here you are Latina man with a new
So this is a vicar of Allah subhana wa tada reminds you of Allah, you remember along with your tongue, you remember a lot with your action. All of our acts of worship are intended to remember Allah subhana wa Tada.
And if you will,
we know this. Right? All of us have memorized it or know it or encountered it in Australia indeed sada forbids
awful grave sins and munkar and the rest of all sins. And then Allah says, will it be cruel lie?
And the remembrance of Allah is greater? What does this mean?
It has two meanings and both of them complement each other. One of meaning of those is that if you remember Allah, Allah will remember you. And when he remembers you, it's far greater than what you have done. As well as the messengers of Allah, Allah you it was sent him says that Allah says, contemplate this heading
into the current depth enough see the
way that the currently female, the female in hiring me.
It says Allah Subhana Allah is saying this Howdy. When my slave remembers me and himself or herself. I remember them in myself.
When you are remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala. At that same moment, Ally's remembering you when you're mentioning Allah, Allah at that same moment is mentioning your name, Allah, the Most High, the creator of everything, the highest of the high is remembering you.
And what happens if you remember him in a gathering? If you mentioned him, as our gem in a gathering, Allah will also mention you in a gathering better than the gathering that you have among the angels of our loss of Hannah, what's
So all of our acts of worship, are dedicated towards the remembrance of Allah subhana wa.
And when we fail to remember Allah,
what happens to us
so we can notice that whenever we are far from Allah subhana wa Taala
the one who fails to remember Allah subhana wa Taala blind when it comes to the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala what happens now is we will send to him, we will send to her at a time and he that shaytan will be his companion. What do you think your situation your state will be when that shavon is your companion? day and night does not leave you
because you have failed to remember Allah subhana wa tada and chase that JSON away. If we are suffering from depression, anxiety if we worry about our
Future if we are saddened because of our past, if we're unsettled
if we're facing problems in our lives, let us think.
Who is my companion? Am I close to Allah? subhanho wa Taala? Or is it that I have a shaitan as my companion as a punishment because I bless Allah subhana wa tada behind
what does the remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada do to us? What does it give us? And it gives us plenty, but I want to focus on few things.
One thing that we gained when we remember our loss upon our data, and you see the effect of that in the month of Ramadan, why do you see it in the month of Ramadan because when you're fasting in the day, that's a remembrance of Allah. When you're reading the Quran, morning and night you are remembering Allah. When you come at night and you pray and you pray Tara with you remembering Allah, you when you're engaging in Vicar continuously in the month of Ramadan, you notice that your heart has changed, as becomes softer.
It's not troubled easily by the affairs of this life. But when you leave that you become a lot more anxious. Few things could anger you. Few things could unsettle you, remove you from your composure. Why? Because Allah Subhana Allah has not inhabited this heart, but it's empty. So the first thing they want to focus on that the decree of Allah subhana wa Taala can give us his love of Allah.
Loving Allah subhana wa tada it comes through remembering him.
And you will notice brothers and sisters, in yourself or in other people. If someone loves something, they'll talk about it all the time.
You don't need to prompt them. You don't need to ask them about it. They will volunteer it if they love cars, they'll talk about cars all the time. clothes, they'll talk about clothes, fashion, they'll talk about fashion, their job, they'll talk about whatever they love, they'll find it on their tongue. Right?
Well, it's it works also in the reverse fashion. If you want to gain the love of something, talk about it and remember it often. And you want to be close to Allah subhana wa tada and gain the love of Allah. remember Allah as much as you can, with your tongue, with your deeds throughout the day, throughout the night, keep remembering Allah, Allah will give you his love because you're closer to him. So this is one thing that the love of Allah subhana wa tada gives us.
The law also gives us serenity and peace and tranquility in our lives. Why is that? So?
Allah decree law he taught my inner kulu Allah subhana wa Dionysus,
the assurance of the heart, that comfort in the heart of the heart only comes through the remembrance of Allah subhana wa Taala, because the heart is empty,
our hearts are empty, our bodies are empty, and they are a void. They need something to fill them. And Allah has made it so that the only thing that can fully and adequately fill our hearts is a loss of panels.
Now, when it is empty and alive is not there, we can try to fill it with so many other things.
this dunya for instance, parts of this dunya
but it never really fits. It never really satisfies. And this dunya because it is transitory it will expire it will leave us and we know that it will leave us actually more troubled when we tried to fill our lives with our dunya you get a house, you get a new car, you get a new spouse, you get a child whatever you get, and you try to make that the center of your heart but then your mind will tell you you will lose them or you might lose them so you worry about that. So whatever you try to love so dearly and put in the middle of your heart, that thing will trouble you
and will bring with it also torture or adapt
and have a loved one who loves something other than Allah who will get tortured by tormented by the only thing that can adequately fill it and will not leave it and you will know that it is lasting is a loss of control.
That's why it brings tranquility to our hearts and peace. And when we know
when we remember Allah subhana wa tada now we know that he is our highest goal and that he will last and everything else will not and this slide will not last. We will rearrange our priorities. When we rearrange our goals in our life. And the things that used to trouble us so much, especially this dounia or I have lost this much money. I've lost that position. I've lost people's phrase, the things that you struggle with so much about this dunya they shrink because besides Allah subhana wa tada and his pleasure they amount to nothing
Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us success
gives us success and whatever effort, whatever effort you plan to undertake, whether it is religious or in this world and you need support you need strength, you need stability, you must resort to remembering the last panel data to give you something like that.
When Allah subhana wa tada charge Moosa and Harun Allah He has
to go to the biggest tyrant on this earth and deliver the message and they had no arms and he had no army with them, go to his court and deliver the message of Islam to him.
in Antigua who kbit one attorney
that's the weapon that Allah subhanaw taala gave to them. Go you and your brother with my signs with my eyes and do not falter do not grow weak in remembering me.
Because you need power you need strength you need stability.
When you're talking to someone like him to deliver data when you need something like that, any affair in your life you need something like that. So you want that support. remember Allah subhana wa tada Allah will give you that support in the most difficult of times.
Yeah, you are Latina.
Oh you who believe if you find if you encounter an enemy and you're going to fight them,
so be steadfast. And remember Allah subhanho wa Taala often said that you may gain success
in the most difficult of situations when you need Allah eight
that the beat from Allah subhanho wa Taala you need to remember Allah subhana wa tada so that this remembrance of Allah can transform you can transform you on the inside can transform you on the outside. And that's how the messengers that allow you to sit in them and his companions, may Allah be pleased with them, were able to do what they used to do,
and had the success that they had because they were so close to Allah subhanho wa Taala
What else does it do?
It will chase away hypocrisy from our hearts.
Now of course if you ask us, are we hypocrites Are we not? Most of us might say of course we are not hypocrites, but the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam used to fear hypocrisy
used to fear it.
And some of the sort of said the one who does not fear hypocrisy is probably one himself.
When you feel secure from hypocrisy, it means that you do not understand your heart and you don't understand this world around us. hypocrisy can creep in one way, or the other one who used to be afraid of hypocrisy, and he was given the glad tidings of parents.
What does the law say about them? What I have gotten a lot in la de la Do you remember a lot very little. The hypocrites remember Allah subhanaw taala very little. So you want to chase this hypocrisy away and protect yourself from it. remember Allah subhanho wa Taala often and you want to chase away, pride and arrogance away. remember Allah subhana wa Taala often because what happens when you remember him, you remember I remember how great he is and how dependent you are on him. That whatever you do is does not be fit the blessings of Allah upon you.
So you will look at it and you say, I haven't done enough and I need to do more. And that is some of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us. And the last thing I would like to mention of the blessings is that if you want a lot to provide for you
provisions, you want a lot to provide for you your need, or you want a lot of blessings, you have money but there's no blessing in it. You want to put blessings in it. remember Allah subhanho wa Taala in more than one place in the Quran.
We now can have a follow up system on a camera to the people of New news saying stuff Europa can make a step for Kala because he will he's our forgiving, he forgives plenty. And what else does he do you see this summer he will send rain from above upon you pouring upon. So you want risk from Allah Subhana Allah to bless it for you. keep remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala as much as you can otoconia there was a lot of stuff you
What hamdulillah when I either high Lama was to Panama
was a loose upon what
to call us.
So that our talk is not purely theoretical fury abstract about the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala I would like to share with you for such remembrance and decode from Allah subhanho wa Taala that it would like you and me to practice and this thing that maybe you've heard about before, maybe in the shower while you're practicing what all of us are practicing. But what I want us to do is the following if you do not know about them, that you would know about them, if you're not practicing them to practice them, if you know about it, but you're not practicing then inshallah move from knowledge into action.
So that you do them.
And also power down and then we'll open other doors of his remembrance to you will bless you with that by the will of Allah, if you know them, and you are doing them that I want us to move to the third stage of taking at least one of them, and teaching it to someone else.
And when you teach it to someone else, as long as they are doing it and practicing it, you will get the same reward that they are getting. So know it, practice it and also inshallah preach it and give it to other people. So the first thing is
something that is very beautiful and very easy. Messenger sallallahu Sallam said, Man, Allah subhanho wa Taala limi will be hemmed in, worries Atlona confusion.
The one who says Subhana light our levy will be handed glorifying Allah subhanho wa Taala and praising him That's right word sapan ally alene will be handy, then a day tree will be planted for him in Paris.
This as simple as that.
Where does this help
among the places where it helps, is when you just notice that someone else is doing better than you.
And the shaitaan comes in and he tries to plant the seed of envy hazard in you. He has she has what I don't have.
They have been blessed with what I don't have.
So if you find that somebody has done better in this life, though, it doesn't matter as much. But if you find that and it's boiling inside your heart, one of the solutions that you can resort to is to build your hereafter
build on the hereafter. And if you want that allowed subhanaw taala would give you a tree. Now trees in this life are expensive. And the day tree is expensive is one of the most expensive ones. And Allah will give you one. It's not like the ones in this slide. There are ones made of gold, Allah will give you one of them for simply saying tapanuli lovely movie.
So if you feel it sometimes write you down. Or you want to increase your garden paradise sit and say 100 low give you 100 say 1000 Allah will give you 1000 and say more than level give you more and feel the blessings of Allah that as as much as you are saying Allah subhanaw taala is giving.
So this is the first and it's very easy and very simple.
The second one
if you needed support
throughout your day or night,
Well, faulty model, the Aloha, the daughter of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because of so much housework that he she used to do, it left its mark on her hands and shoulders. So she wanted to go to her father alley so that Wasserman asked for help for a servant. She went she didn't find him. She came back and he knew somebody who sent him what she wanted to ask. So he came and he found her with her husband and he was the one
and he said and now bureau Kuma behind in documenting masal trauma.
So shall I tell you about something better than what you asked for? Better than having a servant to get to give you help and aid in your house? chores?
To serve a telethon was a Rotten
What was it what can be done with it?
It says when you're about to sleep just before going to sleep. Say Subhana Allah 33 times Alhamdulillah 33 times Allah work about 34 times this is 100 This is better for you than having a sir.
So the asked it and look at that commitment, that type of commitment to know. So the value of the matter definitely
Mohammed, he said, I've never left them. Since the time that I heard them from the Mohammed Salim said them, not a night had passed without me saying them. So they asked him even on the night of Sofia, even on the night of the Battle of Sofia, you'd said that he said even during the night of battles, that's commitment to.
So if you get tired, by if you need physical support, if you need emotional support, whatever your job, whatever your life is, if you need some type of support, say that before you sleep, this is the prescription of your profits of the law.
Now we can add something a little simple to it and show a lot that would be the fourth the fourth, the third, become something little simple.
He says the law you said them Daddy, that is
attorney now Yamato became a Muslim on the other hand,
So two things that are Muslim does he or she want to paradise
and they're very easy. And very few actually do them.
Very easy, but very few actually do them.
So what are they?
He says he does a later, facade be harsh rah
rah, rah can be Russia.
But it can be a tsunami Lisa Walsingham Soumya filmyzilla. So the first he says, When you pray, say Subhana Allah
10 times, say 110 times say Allahu Akbar 10 times, this is throughout your day with five daily prayers 150 on the tongue through the tongue, this is 150 with a lie in the scale, it's 1500. That's how it's counted.
what kept me up. So say Subhana, Allah hamdu Lillah Allahu Akbar the total of 100, like in the second one, the total of 114 Kamiya.
While fulfilling visa, so this is 100 performed by the tongue, and 1000 in the scale.
Komiyama Lu alfine.
video so says Who among you perform 2500 cents a day.
But if you actually take account of your day, and you say these things, and they are written for you 2500 hustlers, it's not possible conceivable for you to commit 2500 things a day. So of course, it naturally does all of this continuously every day, he will be of the people of paradise.
See how simple they are? Very simple.
So they asked him
they were so easy. Why are they so difficult than
was good Cara Fernando
de la hufa Diana.
So the shaytan will come to you when you're praying.
And he will say that's the plot of the JSON. That's the trickery of the shaytani will come and say remember this, remember that, remember this and remember that until you for you will forget and you will not do it. And you will leave your solid before saying any of that and he will come to you when you want to sleep and he will put you to sleep he'll make you go to sleep just so that you wouldn't say it.
So it's easy to do, but you have to battle the shape on for it. So be aware of the plot of the sheet on your prophet had told you about to be and be smarter and say it and be persistent so that you will be able to people of Paradise and the last one that I will say inshallah it says we have a lot of gatherings right? We have a lot of assemblies when we sit together with friends and families and what have you. And the messengers A lot of you send him says mommy told me Unum imagination. La Ke
Hassan Yama, Yama, he says if a people leave a gathering, where they did not mention Allah during that gathering, it would be as if they have left the carcass of a donkey. They've left a dead donkey behind, and it will be a regret for them on the Day of Judgment. So imagine if you're sitting with family and friends and you leave and you're not mentioning a lot at all, it's as if all of us were sitting around a dead rotten donkey. That's the value of what we were doing. And it's repulsive, and it doesn't benefit. And when we meet Allah subhanaw taala it will be a time that if it is not written for us, it could be against us. I brag between someone I mocked someone I did not at least I
did not mention our law so it's not written for me.
So try to mention Allah subhanho wa Taala simply by attending this panel or whatever, when you meet people and what you can do to conclude any imageless
is to say Subhana Allah He will be hemmed in szczepanik allama will be handing a shadow Allah Hi, Lancaster Furukawa and I can tell I can give you this if you did not catch it after rusada what happens when you say this province of law you send them said, you can imagine the Senate in Canada who could follow if you said if which was a measureless a gathering of idle speech, a speech that could anchor a law saying this at its conclusion will forgive what you've said in that setting. In that assembly. When can I make this a decree in Canada
but it was a an assembly a gathering of the remembrance of Allah it will be a seal upon it. And when will the sale be opened? The sale will be open when you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala and you will be in need of every single Hasina you can get. So remember this at our gatherings before you leave, either have a last panel with ALLAH forgive all the wrongs that you've said in it. Or if it's the best list of dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala is happy with it, put a seal on it and protected till the day that you meet Allah.
So we ask Allah subhana wa Taala, Muay Thai to make us of those who remember him often. Allah make us of those who remember you often, Allah make us of those who remember you often, Allah we asked you for all the good in this life and in the Hereafter, and we seek your refuge from all evil in this life and in the Hereafter. And we asked you for heaven and everything that brings us near to it. And we seek your refuge from Hellfire and everything that brings us near to it. And Allah we asked you for for the best that your messenger had asked you for. And we seek your refuge from the words that your messenger had sought refuge from a lower mainland as a local Heroku and became an
