I know we're living in times of fitna and practicing our Deen is challenging. We're living in times of tic Tock Snapchat and Instagram. And they've all sucked us in. We're living in times where some of us are willing to jeopardize their relationship with Allah soprano, Adana, their athlete or their eternity for a few likes or comments, mail us proper production protect us. We are living in tough times. Yes. But know with certainty that a loss of path Allah appreciates your efforts and will reward you in unimaginable ways. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said ahead of you our days of patience, when holding on to one's religion will be like holding on to hot coals. And whoever

00:01:05 --> 00:01:12

holds on to his religion in that time, very word will be the reward of 50 people.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:27

Now the companions hearing this, they're thinking about their struggles about how they were tortured about how they were starved about how they were abused.

00:01:28 --> 00:01:44

And so they're thinking 50 people, I wonder 50 of them right? And so the companion said, Yeah, rasulillah 50 times the reward of their reward. And the prophet SAW Selim said no, rather 50 from you.

00:01:45 --> 00:01:58

Meaning it's like the reward of 50 companions. Can you imagine that? Look at Allah as appreciation and his generosity to multiply our reward by 50

00:01:59 --> 00:02:22

spamela the analogy the prophet SAW seldom used a time of patience will come to people in which adhering to one's religion is like grasping on a hot coal. Why would a person hold on to some burning coal? Why would they withstand that pain? Why would they continue to hold on?

00:02:23 --> 00:03:13

There could only be one reason for someone to do that out of their own will, because it's worth it. Because letting go would be worse. Because it's salvation, because it's following what Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked us to do, and it's staying away from that which Allah and His Messenger prohibited us. And doing that is the path to bless to eternal bliss. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Islam began as something strange and shall return as something strange. So given the lad tidings to the strangers, I know it's hard, especially when everyone else is doing something.

00:03:15 --> 00:04:06

You know, there are things that are trending and that are heavy, and deep down inside, we all just want to fit in, we all want to be cool. But I assure you going down that path is one of temporary pleasures, temporary laughs temporary acceptance by others. And when it fades, we're just going to keep searching for the next group of people to accept us. But if we strive for acceptance with Allah soprano data, we should know that he is the one who's capable of granting us happiness, acceptance, wealth, and eternal success. So don't shy away from being seen as strange. Why? Because we have a lord who appreciates our efforts and magnifies our reward. Who will give this paradise not like the

00:04:06 --> 00:04:11

beautiful places that you see on travel commercials or while scrolling through Instagram.

00:04:13 --> 00:04:31

But a paradise that's beyond imagination, one that is designed in fashion by Allah subhanaw taala, the one who created us and created this beautiful world that we live in for those that he's pleased with, for those who obeyed Him, for those who are patient.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:36

So how do we do that? How can we remain steadfast on our Deen

“Our Lord! Do not let our hearts deviate after You have guided us. Grant us Your mercy. You are indeed the Giver of all bounties, Ameen!”
