To learn on
me no salatu salam ala ala l mursaleen. Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doesn't even consider and cathedra from mavado American sisters.
We are beginning this new series, a flock of the oma at the manners and the behavior of the Almighty of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and those around atella convert a great favor upon us that he made us Muslims, and that he made us Muslims in the moments of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, anybody who was born and who lived in the time of any of the messengers and prophets of Allah subhanaw taala was an almighty of that Prophet. He was a Muslim, but they were not rheumatism Mohamed Salah. There are special favors conferred upon the oma of Mohammed Salah Salam Alhamdulillah, Allah subhanho wa Taala decided in his wisdom and in His mercy to make us among those
who will be the beneficiaries of these special favors. We ask Allah subhanaw taala for his mercy and for his forgiveness, especially at this time, when we are in the midst of this enormous crisis, the crisis of the Coronavirus, my brothers and sisters, it is a unprecedented crisis. It is a global crisis. It affects everybody, wherever we might be, whichever country nobody is exempt from this, we ask Allah subhanaw taala for mercy for his mercy for his forgiveness for protection for everyone everywhere, wherever we might be.
Just just, it is.
In the midst of all this, there is great hope.
And that hope is that we have this unique opportunity as Muslims, of showcasing Islam, of showing us of people showing people what living Islam means showing people what it means to be an oma to Muhammad Sallallahu listen. And that's why that's why I thought we will start this new series called a flap of humanity.
In this, this is supported by my book by the same title, a call of duty which is on Amazon. And it's on all
software platforms like Kindle and iBooks and so on. It's it's available free. on Amazon, if you feel like a paper copy, there's some minimal charge which which Amazon always charges.
This book is based on a set of Ayat of Surah 200, which is a very important sort of for us to learn in order to understand
the way of living as a Muslim and as an homage to masala. This is not a Tafseer of the surah it's not at the mercy of the earth it is lessons from those ayat.
So as I was saying in these times today, on the one hand, we have the problems with the virus and so on and so forth in the danger of the danger it represents. But on the other hand, we have also the great mercy of blessing of Allah Subhana Allah that Allah gave us this opportunity to showcase and present Islam to the world in a way, which shows them the beauty of this beautiful religion.
Islam came to practice. Islam didn't come for us to philosophize on it Islam didn't come for us to just talk about it. Islam came for us to practice it. My brothers and sisters.
There was a man who was driving down the streets.
And he saw children he saw children begging at the street corner.
The side always affected him. And he wondered at the inequities of life. Master, he cried to his teacher, why doesn't our Creator do something about these people?
He did, said the master, he made you
and that is why I say to myself when I say to you,
you are the instrument of Allah subhanho wa Taala in this world, ask yourself what purpose do you serve?
You are the instrument to do what?
Look at your your life and say what is it that I am doing with what Allah has given me? Am I using it to make this world a better place? Am I using this to build some capital for my own Arthur sacado Jerry? Am I doing this to showcase Islam to the rest of the world and show them what a beautiful religion This is? Or am I squandering it by wasting it? Am I doing whatever I'm doing?
If there's one word that can claim to sum up the entire question of leadership, it is responsibility.
When we choose to take a leadership stance, we choose to hold ourselves responsible
We choose to be held responsible, we say to the world that we are prepared to account for what we say and do and to be judged by the effects of that.
Without the willingness to accept responsibility, there can be no leadership. Accepting of responsibility is called accountability.
If there's one thing that ails us today, it is that we don't act on what we do. This is true for everyone, especially for Muslims. Today as I sit and talk to you here, most of us know enough to enter Jannah without hisab inshallah, if only we practice what we know how many of us do not know that praying five Salah a day is the guarantee for Jana inshallah.
How many of us have not heard the Hadees or sorceress Allah if you haven't heard it, let me tell you about this.
Observe that Allah subhanaw taala said
I have made five Salawat followed on my slave.
If my slave prays those five Salawat on time, right, my slave phrase, those five sellers on time, then Allah subhanaw taala said, I guarantee him, it is my responsibility on the day of judgment to forgive him and enter into jhana just the vibe for Salawat you pray on time, wherever you might be. Allah subhanaw taala is guaranteeing as I say that he is responsible for us,
for forgiving us, and for entering us into Jannah. Now there's Allah subhanaw taala does not go back on his promises, we know this. And what would what do we need to do justified.
And that is the importance of acting on what we know. And as I said, even if you don't learn anything new from today, what we know is enough to get us Jannah insha Allah, but we don't practice. And so we condemn our lives, ourselves to a life of misery in this world. And if Allah doesn't forgive us, then too much more in the academic be facing, I asked a little smarter to forgive us and to save us from ourselves.
Our brothers, sisters,
everything begins with attitude.
If we love something, then we need no encouragement to do it.
On the other hand, if you find something to be meaningless, then all the money in the world will not put any energy and enthusiasm in our engagement with our activity. The same applies to religion. If we love Allah, then we will be encouraged to obey Him. We would love to obey Him as we look forward to our meeting with him jealous Allah
and vice versa. If you don't love Allah, then we don't want to meet him. We don't want to obey Him. And the sooner Salah Salem said the one who wants to meet Allah, Allah wants to meet him. And the one who does not want to meet Allah, Allah does not like to meet him.
This doesn't mean you won't die, you will die, he will go for last one Hunter, but he will go before somebody who didn't want to meet and somebody who doesn't want to meet you. That's a huge, huge, huge problem.
My brothers and sisters,
the only people who are a guarantee of gender after the MBR lemma Salaam are the Sahaba of a silver salsa. He called them the best generation hydrocone khurmi.
From ballerina, you know, someone in a room and he said, after them, best generation is my generation and after them those who came after give after
there's no guarantee for anyone else for Gen.
Now, the Xibalba sources were a blessed group, they were taught directly by a seller. And in some cases, Allah subhanaw taala also did the interview, as we will see, as we go along in this series of, of classes.
They took the DNA in its purest form from socialism directly. And then they took the message to the rest of the world
today, the fact that all of us are Muslim is
a mark of the excellence with which they fulfilled their duties.
Now so the app is a surah of the Quran, which has perhaps the maximum number of instructions about attitude and behavior with respect to resource and salah and the fact that Allah subhanaw taala likes.
There is a mention about these things also in sort of the Lhasa, Serrano, and other places but in this surah these matters are stated very clearly and powerfully. And that's why I thought it would be a good idea for us to focus on this most critical of matters.
as that is the foundation of our religion.
Allah subhanaw taala said, Yeah evil Athena Amano LA to co d mu Bina de la hora Saliba takala in LA LA Samia le, which means a lot that has been said, and we'll come to that meaning I was a dancer
Yeah, you will levina Amano LA. Sua Taku focus Alton Abbey, Willa TARULLO who will Kohli kachari bodycombat bata amen Welcome to LA showroom in de la Vina yo Dora aswad the home in da su de la hula eco la Vina Hara lo Uber home. Taco lahoma zero to one as soon as he
the first three I had which means all you will believe do not put yourself forward Do not try to go ahead of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu Sallam and have fear of the of the anger of Allah. Verily Allah subhanaw taala is all hearing and all knowing,
all you who believe, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and do not speak aloud to him as you speak aloud to one another. Lest, if you do that, less your deeds may be rendered fruitless while you do not see it. Verily, those who lower their voices in the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala as messengers, Allah Salah, they are the ones in whose hearts Allah has tested. They are the ones whose hearts Allah has tested for taqwa for piety, and for them his forgiveness, and a great reward.
In this beautiful ayat, Allah subhanaw taala has done two things. One, he has given us instructions of how to behave with Rasulullah saw salah and how to look at ourselves how to test ourselves to see whether we have duck or not.
Today, you might say, well, Russell Russell have lived in the seventh century. I didn't live at that time I'm living now in the 21st century, how to behave with Russell Russell. Sam is obviously interesting, but how does it apply to me? how it applies to you and me today is how do we behave with the instructions or with the words or sort of
the instructions for the Saba or to how to behave with this person as well, which today we deal with his speech
was book as governors Oh, by the great scholar Ali Rahi. It is narrated by
their horsemen from Donald Tamim went to see Russell as a seller. And so Abu Bakr radi Allahu said appoint
Alex aka Ma Ma ebrima. But as the leader, Omar Abdullah on the on the other hand, he said no appoint Accra habis as the leader, a worker of the law who said to her no SATA, you just want to oppose me. Omar Abdullah said I don't want to oppose you and they argue to the extent that they raise their voices on each other about this incident, these words of Allah subhanaw taala were revealed. And this is from Bukhari, from Al Hassan Mohammed in a Saba
where Allah subhanaw taala said Oh, believe, do not put yourself forward before Allah and His Messenger solo salah and fear the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Verily, Allah subhanho wa Taala is all hearing and all knowing who you believe, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and do not speak to him aloud in the way that you talk to each other, lest your deeds may be rendered fruitless and worthless, while you do not even know. Meaning that treat them in a very different way from the way you treat each other. First, don't don't say something which goes against what he has said, Don't put yourself forward meaning don't give an
opinion before you've heard his opinion. And if you have heard his opinion, don't give an opinion which is contrary to that. And second thing is don't raise your voice meaning just the voice itself. Also contradicting water, solar solar subsidies amounts to raising your voice. So it's the actual physical raising of the wise means don't shout in his presence and so on. This is not the way to talk to him. Don't talk to him, like the way you talk to each other is not just his one is not one of your buddies. So talk to him with the respect that is due to the Messenger of Allah. And when you speak to him do that in a way where you don't contradict what he's saying. And then Allah subhanaw
taala gave a very, very severe warning Allah said if you do that, Allah subhanaw taala will wipe out all your deeds and you
Will not even know. Meaning that if you behaved with our solos on a solemn without the respect that is due to him as the Rasul of Allah sallallahu sallam.
Then when you go before our last rounds on the Day of Judgment, you will find that your account book of accounts is clean, it has nothing in it. It is blank, not clean, it is black. All the good you did in this world is wiped out because you were disrespectful to the NaVi Elisa. being disrespectful to the rubbish Allah Salam in today's time means to deny his hobbies to go against his his statements to make fun of what he said, to decry them to disparage what he said, to treat that with disregard all of these things amount to that. Seven min highs. Even a Seamus or delanco is a famous study of the Quran and one of the Sahaba Salah research on loved him very much now he was hard of
hearing. So when he spoke he always raised his voice used to speak loudly when these ads were removed, but when these ads were revealed
cyberdemon Hazel delanco stopped coming to the machine.
after a couple of days he asked about him he says Where is he?
And as other lanos
said, that, when this I it was revealed where Allah subhanaw taala said do not raise your voice above the voice of the Nabi sabich. When he said I am the one who used to raise his voice above the voice or source muscle. Therefore I am in the Hellfire because Allah did wipe out the deeds. So if Allah is wiped out the deeds, then
my my deeds are Gods I mean the hellfire.
So this, they told we shall
go to him and tell him that he is from the people of gender. Imagine this is the wages of others. Here was a man who the I didn't come for him. It was not nothing to do with him. But he took it upon himself and he said, Well, I raised now he was not raising his voice as a matter of lack of other. This he was out of hearing it like most people who are who are hard of hearing he used to raise his voice. So when he raised his voice and when that was brought with when when the ad was revealed, he took it on himself and he said swallow this means that I'm finished,
encouraged him and he said no. He said, Tell him that he is from the people of Ghana and then he started going back to the mud this cassava used to point to him and say there is a man of gender there goes a man of gender.
In the land who said after this I would I it was revealed sola sola would hardly hear what Omar bin Al Khattab used to say to you know, the law. He had asked him again and again, what did you say what do you say? Now, this was because as an hour also had a powerful voice, he was a big man. Now, some some people have said that, or put, put some pebbles in his mouth. And he was to talk with those tables so that his voice couldn't be erased. As soon as he used to have to ask him again and again. You've never heard the alarm said when the words of Allah subhanaw taala Do not raise your voices above the voice of the prophets of Salaam were revealed a worker of the law who vowed to himself
that he would speak to the progress of a salon only in a whisper and that is when verily those who lower their voices in the Presence of Allah, Allah messenger, they are the ones whose hearts Allah has tested for piety. For them his forgiveness and a great reward. This ad was revealed as a result of this while I'm working to see the
desire it was revealed for delana to encourage him and to
to reward him for making this statement to say I will speak to the parser Salaam only in a whisper. Sister these were these were glorious people these were people who are smarter especially favored the our relationship relationship to them is Alhamdulillah that we are from the same oma these are the same people who are the people who are our leaders, our elders, and we need to follow them and if you follow them inshallah, Allah subhanaw taala promise Jana for all those who follow the Sahaba
main bill so
everyone says these are the gold standard. Now.
What must we do in our own context? How do we understand these if and what must we do and what must be guard against?
These are not simply important because they are the ayat of the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala. But even more important, because Allah subhanaw taala divine our attitude towards Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he told us what their attitude should be. And he told us in clear terms what would happen if he failed to develop this attitude? These are teachers manners. This teaches how to deal with a pseudo solemn and is blessed sooner. There are three matters in these is the first one is how to
Deal with orders and rulings of Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger sallallahu sallam. Number two, what if you argue with these orders or refuse to accept them? And number three, what of those who accept the orders and bow in submission? So, let us look at each of these. First one. How do you deal with the orders and rulings of Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned his messenger sallallahu Sallam along with himself to reiterate the importance of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam
as the lawgiver. Allah said, putting yourself out before Allah and His messenger. This refers to elevate to elevating our own opinion and desire in competition with the order of Allah and His Messenger savasana. This form of address, Allah and His Messenger has come many times in the Quran to emphasize the importance and the high status of our solar system. And to emphasize that Rosaura serasa only conveys the orders of Allah. The orders of Allah and His Messenger are never at odds and they are never contradicted one another. Amaya antiquity La Ilaha. Allah said he does not speak of his own by his own volition. He doesn't speak of his own desire, he speaks only what has been
revealed to him. What Rasulullah sallallahu says is always in support of and explaining what Allah subhanaw taala has already ordered. That is what Allah subhanaw taala is drawing our attention to this I also and its meaning and instruction that rasulillah salam is to be obeyed without question or argument, even to the to the extent of accepting his rulings, not only outwardly but also in the heart. This is supported by several other if Allah subhanaw taala equated disobedience or obedience of not not equated obedience to a pseudo Salah to obedience to himself. This doesn't confer a divine status on the other Ibiza Salah, but underlines the fact that there are soldiers that are pseudo
pseudo did not say anything of his own will. He only said what he was ordered to say by Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanaw taala zip, my UT Rasulullah sakata Allah, tala from Murcia naka de him hafeez la and those around Dallas It is
he who obeys the messenger Muhammad Salah Salam has indeed obeyed Allah, but he who turns away then we have not sent you or Mohammed as a watcher over them. The matters are pseudo Salaam only orders. What he is instructed to is even more clearly spelt out by Allah subhanaw taala in the ayat of surah, which I mentioned to you before Mayan diwani lava in Hawaii lava.
Allah said he does not speak of his own desire. It's only what he that is sent. Allah mates so jealous Allah who made complete obedience to Rasul Allah so solemn, a condition of Eman and said that anyone who didn't obey a Surah Surah Salaam completely, both inwardly and outwardly is not even a Muslim. I invite those who speak against the Sunnah to reflect on what they are doing to themselves and on and of the day, when they will meet Allah subhanho wa Taala number two, number two, what if you argue with these orders, or refuse to accept them? Allah subhanaw taala took an oath by himself and declared that anyone who doesn't accept the ruling of Rasulullah sallallahu
has exited Islam. What can be more severe and stronger than a ruling as a ruling than the ruling of Allah himself?
And as well as it for Allah or a bigger law, you may know
you have chemo, FEMA, Sharjah rabina home some law you do fee unforeseen Hara Mahadeva will sell the motus demon, Allah subhanaw taala said which means but no by your verb Allah has taken oath by himself. They can have no Eman. They do not have Eman, they are not Muslim. They can have no Eman until they make you ohama salatu salam, the judge in all disputes between them, and they find in themselves in their hearts, no resistance against your decisions, and they accept them with full submission.
The IRS clearly mentions two things, accepting both outwardly and in your heart. This means to obey and to do that with complete acceptance and joy, not as a burden with bad grace. This happens only and only when we love Allah and His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah subhanaw taala described the attitude of the believers as an attitude of complete and total and joyful obedience, not only obeying, but being eager to obey and to please Allah subhanaw taala
Such people. Allah subhanaw taala from his gender in Ghana call me Nina Eva Dorito la hora su de Akuma bayda home colusa Ravana Willa ecohome Alma freehold Allah. In so to know, the only saying of the believers of the faithful believers when they are called to Allah subhanho wa Taala, which is the Quran and His Messenger sallallahu Sallam to judge between them is that they say serenata we hear and we obey, and such people are the successful ones. These are the people of Ghana. Allah subhanaw taala gave a blanket order to us to the believers to do whatever Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam told us to do, and to stop from what ever he stopped us from wa Kumara Sulu, Romana Haku man
who Fanta who what the hola in the LA Harsha de kaap. Allah said in whatsoever the messenger sallallahu Sallam gives you take it and whatsoever he forbids you abstain from it, and fear Allah subhanho wa Taala Verily, Allah Subhana Allah is Severe in punishment in this sort of lashup Allah subhanaw taala give a blanket thing whatever he tells you, obey whatever he stops you from stop. And if you don't do that, remember that Allah subhanaw taala will punish my brother sister. The biggest sign of this fact is that in the archives, the Pillars of Islam, which are all acts of worship, Allah subhanaw taala deliberately left the implementation, how to do it, the methodology of it to
his messenger sallallahu Sallam to explain.
In the caliber, in the Salah. In Zakat in fasting in hajj, we have to and we must look to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam to see how each of these acts of Nevada are to be done.
We have to see how they are to be done. We have to see what is the value of them if something goes wrong, how must I correct it? All of these are not given in the Quran. These are given in the Sunnah of Rasulullah saucer, I want you to reflect on these if and to ask yourself, if Allah said in all these cases, make my messenger the judge between yourselves and accept without question and without resistance, whatever judgment he passes, and take whatever he gives you and leave whatever he forbids you from? Would he then have allowed the teachings and rulings of Rasulullah Salah Salem to be corrupted and to be lost and be forgotten? If this were true? How could we follow slap?
If we believe this, then believe me we are blaming Allah subhanaw taala of injustice of injustice. This is a false doctrine of those who seek to reduce the authority of Rasulullah Salah Salah, and to replace his authority with their own authority about what is right and what is wrong. These are the people I won't name any names. But you know the names who promote this issue of rejecting has had this issue of putting their own opinion and say this is what the hobbyist says but I don't agree. I have a contrary opinion. Most well companies do that. But read the act of the Quran about what Allah subhanaw taala said will happen to you if you do that.
I rest my case. Point number three. What of those who accept the orders and bow in submission? Allah subhanaw taala himself guaranteed gender for the Sahaba and for those who follow them in excellence in the Lydia will Dona sua tomentosa de la de la Cala de dum de Hannah Lo, Luba homely, taqwa Lo, Mo Farah, Luna z. And let's say the very least those who lower their voices meaning those who accept those who bow in submission to the orders of Allah and his messages are those who lower their voices in the presence of Allah's Messenger. They are the ones whose hearts Allah has tested for piety for them his forgiveness, and a great reward. Now brothers sisters, this is I mentioned came in the
honor of Abu Bakar Silvio de la but its meaning applies to those who submit to the orders of Rasulullah salah and do not put their own opinions forward and desires forward above the orders of Allah and His Messenger salasar. All those today who seek to make music, which are soulless and prohibited. All those who seek to deny the importance of the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in terms of their appearance. All those who seek to introduce customs and practice practices into Islam that are soulless,
prohibited, they must reflect on what they are doing to themselves. Why are they so insistent on refusing the bizarre agenda? Because remember, the Bashara is only four
Those who lower their voices meaning who submit their own opinions to the teachings of our solar system. I will not even mention those who mock the sun I make fun of the Sun now because there are other is where Allah subhanaw taala has dealt with them specifically for this lesson. It is sufficient for us to have the best belief about our brothers and sisters, that their disobedience is because of our lack of knowledge and is not a sign of rebelliousness. So let us become aware of the attitude of the people of Ghana and inculcate those attitudes in ourselves so that we may be included in that list. It will be necessary to reflect and face some painful facts
and make some changes in lifestyle and in friendships allows that allows Rotella mentioned the Sahaba and he mentioned what will happen to those who follow them in excellence. Allah subhanaw taala said was sabi who's Allah wa una manera hygena Well, I'm sorry. When the know about whom? Nene about the Allahu wa one will Abdullah whom Jonathan deji Tata Helen ha ha livina Fie Ababa, Daddy likkle foes with Ozzy, Allah said in the first to embrace Islam of the Maha Judo and the answer, and also those who followed them exactly the first to embrace Islam, among the immigrants and the helpers, the mahadji rune and the answer the people who went from Accra to Medina and the people who
supported them in Medina, Allah subhanaw taala. So the first of and the first to embrace Islam of the Mahajan and the answer and also those who follow them in Asana who followed them in excellence and exactly in faith, allies well pleased with them and they are well pleased with him. He has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell there in forever. That is supreme success. See the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala This is if Allah had said wasabi Hoon Allah wa una manera Mahajan, Avalon sorry, and Adi Allahu anhu. Number one this would be complete. But Allah subhanho wa Taala opened the doors for all the generations to come thereafter it would be you and
me. If we follow the Sahaba in excellence, then Allah lifted or open for us to be their companions in general for those inshallah We ask Allah for this, because Allah Azza wa sahbihi una la luna, middle Mahajan, Ansari, one, Xena, Tara home biasa, and those who follow them below us and we ask a lot of bakers among those who follow the Sahaba will Essa, my brothers sisters? Remember that this guarantee is not for anything other than following the Sabbath faithfully without question. It's a guarantee only for those who submit to the Sunnah, not for those who think they know the deed better than the Sahaba. And that's why I began with my quote on attitude, because it is attitude, which is
at the root of all good and evil. It was the attitude or the release, which drove his action of rebellion, which produced the result of eternal damnation. And it was the attitude of Adam and hawala, his father and mother, which drove their behavior of seeking forgiveness and lead them to being forgiven.
Remember, when he believes otherwise Salam and hawala, Sarah also disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala. But when the matter came when it was drawn to their attention, what did they say? They said, Rabbana salam, non Susana, we love the fella tarhana Nanak una nominal, Casa de la we have transgressed against ourselves. We have committed a sin. Oh, Allah forgive us. And if you don't forgive us, we will be among the losers. And what did he believes do? He believes first of all justified justified what he did? Yeah, he said, Allah autonomy. Na, mahalo tormented. I am superior to him. And a hydro minnow. I'm better than him, because you made me from fire, and you made him from clay. And then
when Allah subhanaw taala questioned him, he said Anthony Illa Yomi bassoon, he said, Give me time until the Day of Resurrection, that this is the difference in attitude, when we come at us in we are human beings, we would make mistakes, but when we come into mistake, do we immediately seek forgiveness or do we say let me have some time let me wait let me and delayed which What do we do? Because if we do, if we do not accept our mistakes, if we do not make us the forum Toba if you do not change our ways, that we are following the way of shaitan and euro and I know where that leads us nevertheless, so therefore, let us check our old attitude towards the orders of Allah subhanho wa
Taala and the Sunnah of his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and see if it is one that is likely to get us to Jan to Jana, or to the other place. Let us ask, am I serving Islam? Or am I using Islam to serve my enough's? We
Let us ensure that we don't allow our so called knowledge to become a trap for us knowledge without practice without practice l without ml is like a horse without a rider. It may be the fastest horse in the world, but without a rider, it will have no direction or drive. And we and it will never win a race. So stop collecting horses and learn to write, practice what you know, I remind myself when you let us practice what we know. Let us create metrics to measure how well we are submitting our will to the will of Allah. Measure the number of Sunnah that we follow, let us do that, especially at this time we are sitting at home doing nothing in this Coronavirus,
compelled isolation that has used that to examine our lives, measure the number of sooner you follow and measure the number of sooner you break measure because one day we will be measured by brothers or sisters, I remind myself
let us remember that Allah subhanaw taala Jalla Jalla who He created us for a purpose. And that purpose is to follow him to obey Him. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us always
to obey His orders and to live our lives in a way that is pleasing to Angelina sisters.
The key thing to do is to me Sarah, Sarah was asked and he said whatever I tell you do it to the best of your ability and whatever I stop you from stop completely now. See the difference between the two? The Haram must be stopped completely totally there's no there's no leeway in that. But what you are recommended what's recommended for you do it to the best of your ability for example, praying Alhamdulillah This is recommended this was a tsunami Salah how many rockets Should I pray? The man asked him he gave us this amount given us
gamma which is how much they prayed. He said pray two by two. He didn't give him a specific number. He didn't say pray eight or 10 or 20 or 30 or 50. He said pray to buy to how many as much as you can pray Alhamdulillah but in terms of what must I leave, right Take for example, my my pet topic which is interest base earnings. Allah subhanaw taala What did Allah say Allah said if you don't leave it, then accept a declaration of war from Allah and His Messenger savasana. Now what can be more clear than that? What can be more severe than that? Similarly, other things, whatever Allah subhanaw taala has prohibited we leave immediately, whatever privated we need to believe immediately what he asked
us to do, we do it, we do it, but we do it to the best of our ability. Alhamdulillah Allah did not put a condition on that that must be Allah for example, Allah told us to pray Allah and have a house we pray, we must pray Our service be like this Allah Mohammed Salah Salah, because that is the example we have falling, but Allah did not say for example, that until your Salah is of the quality of Mohammed Salah Salah, I will not accept it Allah did not see that Allah subhanaw taala said, as I mentioned in the Hadith, Allah says the slave who prays five times a day at the correct time, the time is in our control a hamdulillah we can pray at the correct time, but the quality of Salah
inshallah we would like it to be better we must work on it we must try to improve it but Allah is not saying that I will reject the Salah until it reaches the standard which I set because what is the standard the standard is a Salah bomb salsa or you might say that you know that was never gonna happen happen in my life Allah Mashallah. So then why should I pray at all so this is the the thing from shaitan which adds and tries to discourage you by creating this image so no need to get discouraged Alhamdulillah we do what good has been told to us we do it to the best of our ability what we have been prohibited from we stopped completely there's no there's no leeway in that. For
example, I if I was not paying on time Now I know that that is something that I have to stop from when from the next Salah whichever Salah is going to come now.
