be and I do not make myself declare myself free of sin. Indeed the soul the knifes is always calling to that which is evil. The enough's is always calling to that which is evil except for that or those whom Allah subhanahu wa taala has mercy upon so our souls naturally inclined to words that which is desirous of that word of this world. And Allah who believes that you will Jalil has placed a beauty in that so naturally, we inclined towards it but but remember that Jahannam has been surrounded by these desires. And this is why the Hadith tells us prophetic Maori will be showered Jahannam the fire has been surrounded by that which is desirous so you look at Zina, you want to do it you look

00:02:21--> 00:03:10

at hammer alcoholism, you want to do it you look at the freedom that the non Muslims enjoy in this world to live without any strings attached, not worried about the Creator not worried about Halal not worried about haram. You want to do it, but remember, behind that is the fire and this is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us in NEMA Mithali one method will come I cannot tell you how giulini Still Kardan Allah indeed my example and your example is like that of a man who has kindled a fire to jollity they were born for our Shuja Karna fi so the moths and the animals are inclined to fall into that fire for no reason be huge as equal one to a homeowner fee. So I am

00:03:10--> 00:04:00

Don't go to it. And you don't be Hijazi come, I'm holding you back. So as Muslims, we need to remind ourselves what these sins mean. These sins mean the hellfire, these sins mean punishment. These sins mean darkness in this world as well, as much as those who engage in joy for a short moment. They suffer the consequences in this world as well. Why? Because there is a darkness that comes with that a burden that comes with that. And this is why Allah Allah will is that he will Jalil tells us

00:04:01--> 00:04:05

a long way that he will Lavina men who will read

00:04:07--> 00:04:59

lumati Elan? No, indeed Allah is the guardian of those who have believed he removes them extracts them from the darkness into the light from the darkness says into the light. Allah Allah is that you will Jalil called it darknesses. Why? Because it is only darkness over darkness over darkness. It is a dark pit. And this is why when we commit a sin, we find ourselves blameworthy we find ourselves sitting and saying why did I commit that sin? It weighs on our hearts it weighs on our conscience. Why? Because Allahu Akbar Allah is that you will Jalil placed a system within us as human beings that tells us this is bad. This is evil. This is not

00:05:00--> 00:05:52

Good for you. So Hola. Hola. Buenas Zeti. Will Jalil created a way out for those who engage for those who commit sin for those who actually are enticed by that. What did he do? He says, what Allah who you really do a $2 income and Allah wants to forgive you, Allah wants you to turn to Him. Allah wants you to ask of him to beg of him to acknowledge your sins to Him and He will forgive you why? Because He is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful. You see, the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us from Allah Allah Bullis that you will gel as never Abdullah them been a servant commits a sin. Takada Allah Who McFeely so he says, Oh ALLAH forgive me for call Allah. So

00:05:52--> 00:06:39

Allah subhanahu wa taala in all of His Majesty says, Ali, my Abdi, another war bunny, who there'll be them be wealthier of them, but Gadhafi or Tula who my servant knows that he has a lord that takes to task for the sins, He punishes for the sins, and he has a lord that will forgive the sins I have forgiven him for mad. Then that servant he goes back to the sin and he commits it again and the process is repeated again. Alima de Anala Hora Bunya who will be then be well you're the pharaohs them are the Hoffer Tula who I have forgiven him through MA and then he goes back to the sin and the process is repeated once again. Allah forgives him and then at the end of the Hadith, Allah who is

00:06:39--> 00:07:27

that you will Jellal says familia Masha, let him do as he pleases. Now, why because the servant realizes his relationship with his maker, he realizes that he is the servant and his Lord is the maker. So he will always turn back to him. He knows Allah can take him to task and he knows Allah can punish him. So what does he do? He turns back to Allah subhanho wa taala. And he hopes for the mercy and the forgiveness of Allah Allah is is that you will Gela Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam. In reality, this world may seem like it is a prison to us. But if we imprison those desires, then Allah subhanahu Attallah has created ultimate freedom within that. And this is why we find that

00:07:27--> 00:07:27

he says

00:07:28--> 00:07:36

yeah, are you here Lavina man was 30 Wulin you only have on Sunni either.

00:07:38--> 00:07:38


00:07:39--> 00:08:33

Lima Yi Khun, Oh you who have believed respond to Allah and His Messenger, when He calls you to that which gives you live that which gives you life, this Sharia these rules, these strict laws that we abide by are giving us life. Allah subhanho wa Taala created them to make our lives easy. So if we abide by them, then naturally we find the freedom within it is easy for us to navigate our lives. Yes, the soul is calling to evil. It is calling to desire. But as you go about your lives, and you fall into that which is wrong, you turn back to Allah subhanho wa taala. And then slowly but surely you get rid of sin by sin, you get rid of them one by one, get rid of them, get them out of your

00:08:33--> 00:09:19

life, you will find a freedom within that prison of the Sharia. Yes, it may seem like a prison, but it is liberating to the soul. A dunya CJ mean was your natural caffeine. The dunya is a present for the believer. So if you go into the laws, this is haram. That's haram that's not allowed. This is not allowed. Yes, there is a lot of Halal that Allah subhanho wa Taala has made, but he has also made much that is haram. So a person may seem to think that he is in a prison when he looks at the way the people on the outside who don't believe interact with this world. When they want to do something they do it when they see something they engage they do immediately. So a person may assume

00:09:19--> 00:09:30

that I'm in a prison, but Allah Allah Boulez that you will tell is telling you that within that prison is your freedom is the liberating of your soul. You see,

00:09:32--> 00:09:59

something that we don't realize is that on the outside, they're actually looking at us through the window and saying, I wish I had something that would make my life easy. I wish I had peace. I wish I had contentment. So on the outside the disbelievers and those who are engaging in the last hour wishing for that peace they want

00:10:00--> 00:10:52

It's that peace. They can't wait to have it, they just don't know where to find it. And on the inside, we are sitting and looking at them and saying, I wish I had their life yet in reality, Allahu Bucha is that you will Jalil has granted us freedom. Now all of this can be summed up in the analogy between our lives and fasting. So in the first Allahu Bucha is that you will Jellal he has prescribed for us to keep away from food, drink and sexual desires from the dawn until sunset until sunset. So a person is not allowed to engage in these in this time, you're not allowed to engage in that which is usually halal for you. This is the analogy of your life. So you're not allowed to

00:10:52--> 00:11:41

engage in certain things. Haram Allah subhanho wa Taala made illegitimate sexual intercourse haram. He made illegitimate activities haram so keep away from it. Yes, it's tough. Yes, it's difficult just as the fasting person's throat becomes parched. Without water, this person feels deprived in this world. But then comes the filter. Then comes the breaking of that fast you saw him in for hotton a fasting person has two points of happiness for Huttunen the three a happiness when he breaks that fast so you know when you take that first gulp of water and it goes trickles down your throat and you can feel it moving down into your stomach, remember, hola hola. Bucha is that you?

00:11:41--> 00:12:34

Will Jalil has made janma for those who believe the moment you take your first step into Jana, it will be peace, it will be Salem it will be happiness why contentment because you've deprived yourself in this world. So Allah horrible is that you will July has made Jana as the football, the breaking of the fast of the believer at the end of his life, the first of this life and this is why the Hadith carries on to say what for hatoon indelicato europei not only is there a happiness when he breaks his fast but there is a happiness when he meets his load when he meets hola hola Bula is that you will Jalon so you deprived yourself in this dunya Allah Allah bless that you will Jalil

00:12:34--> 00:12:44

will give you the era we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to grant us Janet will feel those are our heroes. Anil Hamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen
