Many years ago, this guy came up to me at the University in Virginia. And he was, he said, and he was being sincere. He was, you know, born and raised. He was born with a Muslim name. That's basically it. Right? He said, Why does Allah care if I get some ham in my breakfast or not? And in his and he actually said, shouldn't Allah care about more important things? If I murder someone if I steal if I like, What is Allah care if I go McDonald's or give me a mug Porky will call us and eat it? Like, why is that a big deal? What I picked from the menu. Why does Allah care about that? So I told them, yes, and this is the thing when people belittle the action, right? It's not about the

00:00:48--> 00:01:08

action. It's about the bigger umbrella it comes under and that is disobedience to Allah azza wa jal. So I said, Yeah, you can pick the thing easy, and then just pay $1.99 And it's simple. No one got killed. So why is it a big deal? The big deal is you're disobeying Allah azza wa jal. I told him imagine you're at work. The phone rings and your boss is standing right there. He says, don't answer the phone.

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

And you just pick it up. Hello.

00:01:13--> 00:01:17

So he tells you, you're fired. You tell them why?

00:01:18--> 00:01:28

Because they can kill anyone. I just picked up the phone. It's not like I took it across the room just not even a yard half a yard and I only said one innocent word. Hello.

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

gonna suck Lionel Richie and don't listen.

00:01:32--> 00:02:09

So he'll you'll get your last. That's like I told someone like if you go to court you shoot someone in the judges. Why did you murder him? Your Honor, it's not like a strangled him until his face went purple and then the lifeless I just shot him It took half a second law heavy. So the idea is that it's disobedience to Allah as we That's why I started Easter earlier when he said what the the saying of the early Muslims were you know, no one wants to do not look at how small the sin is. But look at the greatness of the one you're sinning against. That's the big deal. So that under that, through those lens, everything is a big deal. It's disobeying Allah azza wa jal. These are all

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

small, big that's the big deal.
