warming up our pseudo code is
dear brothers and sisters
when Allah subhanahu wa taala created us
to live in this world.
He created us for a purpose for a reason.
Not just like that without any purpose without any reason.
And so Allah subhanho wa Taala created us
to serve him
to worship him
to live our lives
in the way that he wants
to Regina will
not have not created the jinn nor mankind
except to worship me.
However, the biggest challenge
that we face
is not that we don't know about this truth from Allah subhanahu wa tada
it's not that we have trouble accepting it.
It's not that we have trouble believing in it.
So even is easy.
Believe in the heart is easy.
To say with your tongue is also easy.
But the biggest challenge
me and you face in this life
is that after our
we are being held back
from living a life of a
life of ease still
remain steadfast upon that path of
both inwardly and outwardly.
And so one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He said Yasuda wa
polyfill Islamic Allah.
The old messenger of Allah
told me something about Islam.
that I will have to ask anyone besides you.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he did not give him a long winded answer.
He did not quote for him in value from the brand.
But rather, he said, in two words,
to be loved.
Don't stalk him.
I have believed in a law
and then remain steadfast upon that.
Leave away from Mr. Koerner.
I live a life of steadfastness.
belief of obedience to Allah subhanahu wa taala
so email alone is not why Allah subhana wa tada created us.
is not gonna land you in jail.
In la de la, buena wa who saw most of
those who said we believe, and then they followed up that he man with righteousness with a life of his Tacoma.

The angels descend upon such people
at the time of death,
saying to them,
Do not fear nor grief.
Do not fear as we take away your soul. Do not fear about where you're going to.
nor grieve over what you are leaving behind of your family your children
do not fear nor grieve.
be given the glad tidings of
which you were promised.
And then the other is in the Roku, Roku Nova to Mr.
poly de de Botton miana loon,
those who say we believe and then
they follow up that belief within karma
there shall be no fear for them, nor shall they grieve. They are the companions of gentlemen,
to abide in zero forever.
Does that be materno Yama loon, a reward
for what they used to do.
And so my dear brothers and sisters, a man is one thing, but to follow up that a man
to follow up, that a man with action, with steadfastness upon the Straight Path of Allah,
until the day you meet him, this is a completely different thing.
And so, if you want
or a co worker, or any law,
whenever anyone can be male or female, it was declared Hakeem aku matches by self Irrawaddy, welcome, Marissa.

But your brothers and sisters
if you wanted to travel somewhere
you want to get in your car
and you wanted to travel somewhere.
Let's say it's very far off.
You're gonna look
for the shortest path that leads
you're going to look
for the straightest path to your destination. You're going to
Look for the most direct your destination.
So once you start reading that path,
you wouldn't go right or left.
You were a stray off of that path.
But rather you stick to it and only take a break when you need it.
the path to
Allah subhanahu wa tada needed to be a straight path.
Not a path that's worse, going right or left, but rather a straight path. Why?
Because this path leads to our destination.
Because the one who treads this path
he is focused on what is in front of him.
He is focused on his desk.
But someone else
who doesn't want to take that street
will go right and left.
He'll swerve off
deviate from the straight path.
And then in front of him he doesn't have
he doesn't have the destination of Jenna.
He wants to take a break. He finds it difficult to boring.
This is the nature of the st. Pat's of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. This is why so many people they complain that to live a life of religiosity.
Why? Because they're knifes has its desire.
Their enough's wants it cabri there are enough or cdva left and right, satisfying its pleasure,
which it does not find upon that string.
That is leading to a loss of Hannah, who were to Hannah. And that is leading agenda.
And so this is why many people, they start off on the straight path.
But then after a while you find
that they start to slow down.
Some of them have burnouts.
Some of them go backwards.
Some of them go rain. Some of them go left.
But just like in any race,
you have the winners and you have the loser.
What is the description of the winner?
Those who start off diligently.
And they continue diligently until
they reach the finish line.
Just like in any race.
The winners are those who remain steadfast.
Yes, it's difficult. Yes, there will be barriers. Yes, there will be hardship.
I'm not gonna get distracted from my end goal.
But the losers who are they?
They are those
who want to give in to the pressure. They are those
who want to give in to their enough.
And it's desire. It's desire for rest.
Wanting to deviate, right and left.
And so my dear brothers and sisters, there are many barriers that come in between us
and continuing diligently
upon a strict path of a loss of heritage.
Among these barriers
is that many of us we think that to live a life of obedience to Allah to live a life of his karma. It means
that I'm going to miss out
on the enjoyments of
the comfort of the dunya.
Among the barriers, is
not being able to picture ourselves
as being religious Muslims, yes. Many of us we can't imagine ourselves
as being religious Muslim,
this is from shavon
whispers this into our minds into our hearts.
Also, among the barriers is a lack of your team.
Some of us are not convinced, is this really the path leading to Jenna?
Is this really gonna land me
Among the barriers is a lack of
We started off on the path.
But then we start to lose steam.
And we start to lose determination to continue.
We become distracted
by shaitan by the dounia.
And we lose that determination to continue.
Among the barriers is peer pressure,
societal pressure, especially in this society in which we live in
live a life of Mr. Karma means that you're going to have to stand up,
it means that you're going to have to live as a stranger.
And you're going to have to look, you're going to have to be seen stranger.
These are some of the barriers that come in between us and choosing to tread that path.
And so, there is one thing
the most important thing that will help us
to tread that string path of velocity.
And that is
by keeping ourselves focused
by keeping ourselves focused on our destination.
Keep it in front of your eyes, every single moment of your life.
Keep in front of your eyes the reality
is life of yours can come to an end.
It's either agenda or the hellfire.
No third path
at any moment
it could come to an end. The Angel of Death
does not come
with an appointment.
rather he comes with
dear brothers and sisters.
The leaf of an ester
is what Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to tread
it is the life that Allah subhanahu wa tada created us for.
Yes, we're not perfect human beings.
And we will have shortcomings. We will commit mistakes along the path.
But don't let yourself
swerve off the path permanently.
Come back to the springtime
sooner rather than later.
that the life of his Tacoma
is as Allah subhana wa tada wanted, not as me and
unfortunately many Muslims out there today. They have a concept of religiosity.
They think that to be religious
by applying certain aspects of Islam
and not applying other
taking it easy
as Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded His Prophet
what 100 command his own Prophet and Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
as you wish known as you have been commanded,
pasta cream comma, woman, woman tada Marika wanna taco
steadfast as you have been commanded by Allah,
and also those who have repented with you, meaning the believers,
and do not, do not go astray.
Do not go too extreme.
And so if this was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
autolyzed, commanding him to remain steadfast as he has been commanded. And how about the rest of us?
We ask Allah subhana wa tada to grant us a man that is the karma.
The karma upon St. Pat's, as Allah has intended and not as we intend, a lot not feeling samina one Muslim and what it would mean you know what I mean, not
in Mecca, some even or even Mooji but
