00:03:13--> 00:03:54

and replace it with knowledge. Again, I want to stress the fact that I'm talking about the knowledge that circles and talks about the three questions that you will be asked in the graveyard. As soon as the people deliver you and dig a hole in the ground and boots and in you and leave you alone. The knowledge that goes around who is your Lord? What is your theme?

Abdullah Ahmed Muna Wilma Moody, this is the first thing that you need to do. The second thing brothers and sisters in Islam

00:08:26--> 00:08:33

is your neffs is accustomed is accustomed, your soul is accustomed to a certain sin.

00:08:38--> 00:08:40

And your left demands it all the time.

00:08:42--> 00:08:50

Now, this is, in my humble opinion, the most difficult war that you must waged against your illness.

00:08:51--> 00:08:56

Because what happened is, your heart has sucked the love of that sin.

00:08:59--> 00:09:10

And all of you, including me, and everybody has this. Now, you must strive to to to do Toba from that sin.

00:09:11--> 00:09:16

You must remove that sin from your knifes. You must work hard.

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

You must do Toba as often as possible.

00:09:21--> 00:09:25

Even if you end up making Toba three, four or five times a day from that sin

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

until one time in sha Allah. If you are truthful, if you are truthful, Allah Subhana Allah will help you to get off the tin. Brothers and sisters in Islam. Again, if the heart has sucked, the heart is like a sponge. If your heart has sucked that sin and the love of that sin, like money is right. When Allah subhanaw taala said about them will remove you coleauxv him when he could free him. They loved

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

the worship of the calf, you know, they used to go around the the golden calf and drinking and drunk and naked and just they love doing that. They like that sin, they, their hearts sucked it now to get rid of this Impossible, impossible. Only those Allah Subhana Allah has mercy on your left must have sucked a sin and is your neffs is your soul is so in love with that sin. Now what you need to do is use Dr. Heart every single day to make Toba from that neffs even if you make Toba three, four times a day now, in order to help your nephew to come out of this your soul to come out of this, you must engage your nephew in good deeds.

00:10:47--> 00:11:15

I'm going to share with you today but don't take it out of context. Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told about a man who prays 200 at night and at the same time he does a certain sin. You know what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said his the 100 at night one day will help him give up the sin. One of the best ways besides making Toba to come out of that sin is that you engage yourself in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:11:16--> 00:11:19

listen to this hadith and the Hadith, a Muslim

00:11:20--> 00:11:38

Islam nakaba Islamic law be applicable Islamic, a companion of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam who went out with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in one of the battles and he used to do something every night.

00:11:40--> 00:11:42
