My dear brothers and sisters.
When a loss of Hannah who went to Allah created us,
He created us, he created within us
a certain desire,
a certain attraction to certain things.
And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Xena Lena, see Pusha T. Nina Nisa II Weldon in one corner
turati mina the hubby will feel
well hiral musawah Murthy well and Jaime will help the alley camera Licata. hayati dounia Allahu Allahu
Allah subhanho wa Taala says
that the enjoyment of
the worldly desires
and then he gives examples of women
of the desire for children
of the treasures of gold and silver well,
of fine horses of fertile land.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says all of these have been made appealing, attractive for many people. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, These are the pleasures of this worldly life and with Allah subhanho wa Taala is the best return.
And so these shaha wax, these natural human desires are a part of our human nature, that Allah subhanho wa Taala built within us, and it's not, it's not possible.
It's not possible to get rid of them.
And that's not what Allah subhanho wa Taala wants from us.
But rather what Allah subhanho wa Taala wants from us
is to follow
the boundaries that he has put in place, that we don't cross these boundaries and enter into fulfilling these desires in what Allah subhanho wa Taala has made her arm for us.
And so if Allah subhana wa Taala is the one who created us,
then he knows better, what's good for us and what's not good for us. And so that is why he made these boundaries for us.
And so my dear brothers and sisters, the fitna of Shahada
is one of the two kinds of fitten in the previous hookah, we spoke about the other kind, and that is the fitna of shabu had doubts and questions and objections. And so my dear brothers and sisters, the fitna of Shahada
is a test that allows
subhanho wa Taala has made us to go through to see who will obey his commands. And who will feel that tests. And so
Allah subhanho wa Taala
he made these laws.
And he put them in place in order to test us
to see who will control their desires in what pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala. And who will allow his desires on the loose without anything to put a control on them.
My dear brothers and sisters in the times in which we live in today,
we human beings
have reached the peak
of what we have invented and manufactured
in order to fulfill these human desires.
And so they are accessible today for us like never before.
There was a time when you had to go out in search of fulfilling your desires and what is held on
today, it's the opposite.
They come to you. And you have to run away from them.
My dear brothers and sisters, all of this shows us
the importance of talking about
how to control these Shahada when they intensify. And when the urges and the temptations intensify.
This is one of the two tests that we face in this life, the test of shubo hat and the test of Shahada. And so the question is, how do we deal with this test? How do we deal with these temptations and these urges, when they intensify?
Have them the tips that we can give is first and foremost
that you need to recognize
the grave danger
of following your desires in what Allah subhanho wa Taala has made her arm
no matter how small or insipid, insignificant, it may seem in your eyes.
And so a small glance,
a small thought,
one puff is not small, but it is great in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And so think of the grave dangers of it. The how the small sins lead to major sin.
Think about how these small things that we look at as being small, they end up putting a seal on the heart.
They end up putting a cover between your heart and the loss of Hannah who were to
think about how
singing in private, behind closed doors is not something small, but rather in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala it is huge, so huge, that it could be one of the reasons that your good deeds are not accepted on the Day of Judgment.
so huge that sitting in private,
where you break down
the sanctity of Allah subhanho wa Taala between you and Allah, how Allah subhana wa tada
will break that barrier between you and the people in the public.
Think about how each and every single
small sin that we commit
how each and every single one of our organs, our body parts
will testify on the Day of Judgment.
It's not something small, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in some Bizarro world, Fuad kulula, aka Carnahan, Houma, Sula,
that the hearing, the sight, the heart and what it thinks all of these will be question on the Day of Judgment, I
think my dear brothers and sisters, how these Shahada
they lead to what is greater. And those are the shubo hats that we spoke about previously.
We think as being insignificant, we think that we will never quit
Anything about this Diem, we think that we will never doubt Allah subhanho wa Taala, or the existence of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so we're free to sin.
But yet, the reality is that she will have
do not rise, except on the ground of Shahar.
Anyone who became an atheist, it was because of his Shahada. Anyone who questioned anything about this deem it was because of his Shahada, because this is where shaitan begins. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of this reality and tells us of shaitan in Nanaia Murakami suey, what is
what does he command us with to commit evil to commit him in immodesty in morality? And then what does Allah subhanho wa Taala say? What am Taku Allah Allahu Allah tala moon, and also he commands you to say about Allah subhanho wa Taala that which you don't know, to claim about this deem
that which is wrong. Why? Because now you want to justify your Shahada. So you find avenues you find ways
to question the deen of Allah subhana wa Tada.
And to question, a loss of Hannah What?
My dear brothers and sisters, among the tips on how to deal with the urges and the temptations of our Shahada
is to not look at the insignificance of the small sins that were committing, but rather to consider the greatness of the one we are seeing.
And so my dear brothers and sisters, it's a matter of the consciousness of a loss of Hannah who went to Adam.
It's a matter of how we look at a loss of Hannah who went to Hana. How great is Allah Subhana who went to Hana in our eyes?
aman hoffa Nakamura be one ahead Nuff said. Hauer for in janitor here.
That as for the one who fears what he fears his self standing before His Lordship Hannah who went to holla and so as a result of this fear,
he prohibits his his knifes from following its desires, his abode will be gentle. In our best commenting on the statement of Overwatch subhanho wa Taala. He says it refers to the one
who is in front of committing a sin he hasn't committed yet. He's about to commit the sin. And then he remembers himself standing before Allah subhana wa Tada. This fear of Allah subhanahu attallah causes him
to run away from that sin.
And so my dear brothers and sisters,
the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
concerning those who will be shaded by Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day in which there will be no shade except his, that among them is one
who was invited by a woman
and not any woman
but a beautiful woman
and one who comes from a good family a noble lineage.
What does he say?
There is nothing between him and fulfilling his desires except one thing.
And that is the fear of a loss of Hannah who went to Allah. He says no, I fear Allah Subhana who would have had
my dear brothers and sisters.
It is how you think of Allah subhanho wa Taala how you view the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala in your eyes.
Also among the tips
for dealing with the urges of our shadow axe is to reflect over the reality of these desires that we want to fulfill the objects
that we're chasing after that our enough's wants to fulfill its desires in the object.
of the very essence of this thing.
There is pure evil.
There it is pure fields
and not how shaitan makes it to seem in our eyes
shaitan makes it to seem beautiful, makes it to seem attractive. But the very reality of it is that it is evil and filth.
And that's how Allah subhanho wa Taala describes it in the Quran.
Allah Habiba two little hobbies.
Well, hobby tuna lil hobby that
that a female
adult truss is for the meal adulterer.
The female zania is for the meal zanni and the meals any is for the females Ania.
How does the law describe them as being hubby's as being filthy? And then how does the law describe the pure those who do not involve themselves in these filthy things? What they have actually been? What the Buena Vista You bet. And the pure
among the females are for the pure among the meals.
And the pure among the meals are for the pure among the females.
Think My dear brothers and sisters, secondly, a boat
the temporary nature
of these desires that we're chasing after
Think of how
that we're trying to fulfill,
how they will give us a moment of pleasure.
And then it's over. That's it.
The pleasure is gone. But now think of the consequences of it.
Of the regret that comes after it. The remorse that comes after it.
Allah subhanho wa Taala will punish you on the Day of Judgment. And so an hour of pleasure in this dunya is not worth an eternity of punishment in the IRA.
And then ask yourself, Is it truly worth it? Finally, my dear brothers and sisters
the most important piece of advice
is that once you have understood the nature of these desires and shallotte
now is it time to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala
in sincere repentance, seeking the forgiveness of Allah subhana wa tada and asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for his aid and his help Allah subhanho wa Taala commands in the Quran what to boo ello la he Jeremy I mean una La La come to flee, Hoon,
and repent all of you.
The believers are being addressed here, all of you all believers, so that you can be successful. This ayah or this part of the ayah in Surah to know is mentioned at the very end, after Allah commands us to lower our gazes after Allah subhanahu wa tada
commands us to protect our private parts after Allah subhanho wa Taala commands the believing women to cover themselves
in front of those who are not their moms, and not to reveal their beauty after all of this, Allah subhanho wa Taala commands the believers to return to Him in repentance, indicating that each and every single one of us are prone to falling into the sins, even if it is something small.
And so my dear brothers and sisters, a true repentance, that sincere repentance is the one that comes with regret, with sorrow, with remorse.
It is the one
that comes with completely abandoning the sins. Seeing that from today. That's it. This is my past. And as for my future,
it is now a determination a strong determination and willpower to never ever go back to the sins no matter how small or insignificant. They may seem to us, my dear brothers and sisters. After that, seek the help
Helping the aid of Allah subhanahu wa tada and look at how Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us of use of Allah His Salaam, and how even he sought the aid and the help of Allah subhanahu wa taala even though he was a prophet and messenger and was guaranteed the aid and the help of Allah subhanahu wa tada Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Allah Rob bcgeu la mina de Luna la

mario brothers and sisters.
There is a reality that many of us face in their battle against these Shahada.
And that is that many of them they say,
that I have realized the danger of the shower
and falling into her arm.
And I have even repented to Allah subhanho wa Taala
but I keep on going back to the sin
and so I repent and then i sin, I repent and then i sin.
And so, now, I give
the very first thing that such a person needs to realize
is that if this is the case, if you are in such a cycle,
that you are on the right path.
But if you decide to give up,
then you have surrendered to shaitan your enemy.
And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Could lube any Adam hotpot. There every single son of Adam
is what not just a sinner, but a frequent sinner will how you will hurt
him boon and the best of those who frequently sinned or who are those who frequently turn to align repentance. And so my dear brothers and sisters, the key is to not give up. Secondly, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not desert The one who flees to him subhanho wa Taala constantly.
And no one sincerely turns to Allah Subhana who had to Hannah in repentance and seeking the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala except that Allah subhanho wa Taala helps him
that no one gives up something for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala except that Allah subhanho wa Taala has promised that he will replace that thing that he gave up for the sake of Allah was something with something far better.
And so even if you don't see it, as being something tangible,
that Allah has replaced this for me.
Then there are many other things that Allah will give you the raw for greater than what you have given up for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada of a man of the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala
of the strengthening of your heart of the purification of your soul and your heart
and of the reward that awaits you
in the era. Think about that. And remember, the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala what made tequila hire jala who Maharajah the whoever fears Allah. Whoever has the taqwa of Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah will surely make a way out for him.
My dear brothers and sisters after that,
with the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala busy yourself
with the worship of Allah subhanahu wa tada busy yourself with doing good and righteous deeds, busy yourself with that which is beneficial for you and your soul and your heart. Why? Because if you do not, then you are knifes will busy yourself with that which is haram. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded the youth
that they should get married. Why? Because it helps to lower the gaze and to protect the private part. And then what did he say that if you're not able to do that, then fast because it is a protection, fast, it is a good deed. It is a way to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala it is a way to distract your neffs from wanting to fulfill its desires in that which is haram. And finally,
finally, patiently endure
against these desires of your knifes. Why? Because the one who does that
he will be rewarded greatly in this life. Before that.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has told us of this reality and giving us example after example in the Quran. One such example Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us concerning the story of poor loot
and the believers that he set a width to fight the enemy, Jonathan's philam Fasano tolu. To bill Judy color in a law movie tele convener her family Sheri Berman, who Felisa many women, who are in who Mineola maniototo MBA,
the taulupe said to them,
that Allah will now test you
with a river that is flowing.
Whoever drinks from this river.
He is not from me, he has disobeyed the command of a law. Instead, he has obeyed the command of his knifes
and so few of them, refrain from drinking the majority of them.
Then what does Allah subhanho wa Taala tell us?
The story goes on.
That when they face the enemy, the majority of them they said
we cannot stand against this powerful enemy, but the few who are suffering and who are patient, against their desires. They said no.
Indeed, Allah has given victory to few over a powerful enemy. And so they fought and the loss of Hannah who attalla gave them victory. Because of their patience. We have the other example of use of Allah His Salaam and how he endured even imprisonment.
Why? Because he didn't want to fall into that which Allah had made her on. He stood patiently struggling against his knifes. And so Allah subhanahu wa tada rewarded him and gave him leadership and authority. And finally, look at Musa alayhis salaam.
And how when he met these two women, fleeing from their own, wanting a place of safety and security
How would he met these two women and lowered his gaze and dealt with them in a modest manner? how Allah subhanho wa Taala married one of them to him
and granted him a place of shelter and protection.
My dear brothers and sisters, the key or the key here is to patiently endure
Until the day you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala.
fighting against the Shahada, it's not an easy thing.
But it is something that is rewarding in this life before the next, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, larina jaha rufina de unknown sabudana that those who struggle in our path
that Allah will guide them to the ways, many ways that seem to be difficult for them. Allah guides him to it. Yeah, you know, spirou wasabi, wasabi to
Allah Allah come to flee Who are you who believe?
Oh, you who believe? Fear Allah subhana wa Taala
and have patience, patiently endure and fear Allah subhanho wa Taala
so that you are among those who are successful. And so when the urges and the temptations of our Chihuahua to intensify,
stand firm and keep up your guard, and never give up and fight back, like a true warrior. Who doesn't know the meaning of surrender?
I ask Allah subhana wa tada to help us all to fight against the fitting of shampoo hat and sha Allah no female Muslim Nina well Muslim at me Nina one minute,
