relationship with Allah, it creates a induces an emotion with regards to Allah Azza when you know that Allah azza wa jal is Al COVID.

have them in all of their circumstances and everything that you do. And so this
duck comes from knowing more about Allah azza wa jal that you recognize, because in reality, there's none of us who sin except that in that moment of sin, that we've either forgotten a lot, so didn't we forgotten about him, or that we didn't give Allah as we did his due right? We didn't hold Allah azza wa jal, as he should be, we didn't estimate him or we didn't see Allah as as good as he deserves to be seen in our hearts. And so knowing Allah azza wa jal is the first one. The second one is to seek knowledge to actually know what a person should fear what a person should avoid. And so if you don't know that something is obligatory on you will the obviously you're not going to do it.
And if you don't know that something is haram, then obviously you may fall into it. And so if you don't know that a transaction is about, then you may fall into it. If a person doesn't know some of the details of the Sharia, I then they may fall into something that's haram and they may, you know, be absent in something that's obligatory and so learning about what a person should avoid and learning how they should have Taqwa of Allah Zosia by learning the religion that Allah has obligated on his slaves.
