00:00:03--> 00:00:08

My dear brothers and sisters, in this union, we train hard.

00:00:09--> 00:00:14

We work hard to achieve many goals.

00:00:15--> 00:00:18

For those of us who want a certain career or a certain profession,

00:00:20--> 00:00:23

we work hard, we train hard. We take courses

00:00:25--> 00:00:26

that keep us honest.

00:00:29--> 00:00:32

For those of us who want one nice body,

00:00:33--> 00:00:36

we go to the gym we training we do

00:00:37--> 00:00:40

for a goal that we have in mind.

00:00:41--> 00:00:42

But why is it

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

that when it comes

00:00:46--> 00:00:53

to the commandments of a law, to the prohibitions of a law, why is it that we don't strike? Why is it

00:00:54--> 00:00:58

that we may try to strike we may try to struggle, but then we give up?

00:01:01--> 00:01:02

The answer is,

00:01:07--> 00:01:07

the answer is

00:01:11--> 00:01:12

our evil inclining left

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

our external enemies

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

and

00:01:24--> 00:01:25

we are attracted by

00:01:26--> 00:01:28

this dunya is visible,

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

as opposed to the

00:01:32--> 00:01:33

that is invisible.

00:01:35--> 00:01:51

I swear by a law that if me and you knew you were to see what Allah has prepared for the believers and the disbelievers in the afterlife. If we were to see with our eyes for even a split second,

00:01:53--> 00:01:57

he would not see he would not disappear for even a single day.

00:01:59--> 00:02:08

But it is because this dunya is visible to us and the athlete is from the world of the unseen. It is because of that, that

00:02:10--> 00:02:11

that striving

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

and struggling to perfect ourselves.

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

It is because of that,

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

that it becomes difficult. And it is because of that.

00:02:25--> 00:02:29

That the majority of us. We give anything up and we give up. Give up
