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

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam, ala Ville MVA will mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Just live on coffee and coffee, Rama Babu, my dear sisters, lots of nano data sent us this beautiful Deen of Islam. And you sent us this Deen of Islam in order that we win with that we may practice it, and that it may become a means of goodness for us and for all those around us in this world.

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

My brothers sisters, and also allies are seldom

00:00:37--> 00:00:58

mentioned in this had these innocent Mohamad narrated by Abu huraira. Delano, who said that rasulillah salam said, I have only been to perfect righteous behavior. I have only been sent to perfect righteous behavior. I see the wording of this heavies

00:00:59--> 00:01:21

not saying I've been sent to perfect behavior. He's not saying I've been sent to convert bad behavior into good behavior. All of that, of course, is part of part of it. And he was sent for that and that's what he did. But he's saying I have been sent to perfect righteous behavior behavior which is already righteous. I have been sent to make it even better. Right? Allah,

00:01:22--> 00:01:32

Allah Libya de mucho la policia de la de Sakamoto, Leah boo, boo boo, so Ramallah we have returned,

00:01:33--> 00:01:55

death and life in order to test you to see which of you will do the best deeds? Are you going to Isola best deeds, not to see which one will do good deeds and which one will do bad deeds, no, to see among the ones who do good deeds, who does even the best, one better than

00:01:57--> 00:02:12

the issue of perfecting behavior assumes already a certain standard of good behavior. And perfection consists of over that, exceeding that standard. And I have come to do that for you.

00:02:14--> 00:02:18

A man came nosa salaam in another edition Buhari marriage where wherever vellano

00:02:19--> 00:02:32

a man asked him, came to him and he said jasola please advise me and as well as Allah Salaam said, Do not become angry and furious. Now one of the beauties of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

00:02:33--> 00:02:53

was that he knew his people he knew individuals. And so in many cases, you will find that he gave advice to people, which is of course, generally accepted and generally applicable to all of us. But it was advice given very specifically to certain people, because he knew them very well. And so

00:02:54--> 00:02:57

he's advising that man, and he's saying to him,

00:02:59--> 00:03:02

Do not become angry and furious. The man asked

00:03:03--> 00:03:04

the same,

00:03:05--> 00:03:21

or jasola please advise me and Michelle esalaam said, the same thing, do not become angry and furious. He said, jasola advised me, he said, Do not become angry and furious three times, one after the other. Now, I was at a party.

00:03:24--> 00:03:32

He said to a referee said that as soon as he quoted him and he said that he said it the whole lot.

00:03:33--> 00:03:45

Hi, Zuma. He said have Taqwa of Allah, wherever you are, and follow an evil deed what they say he has an utter

00:03:46--> 00:03:48

follow a evil deed with a good one.

00:03:50--> 00:04:30

So, Tom, who will hardly be NASA, be Hello, kill hazard. Behold, and treat people with good behavior. So he said to him have Taqwa of Allah wherever you are. Whichever situation you might be, have Taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Follow an evil deed with a good one. Meaning that even though you may have Taqwa, you still make mistakes. When you make a mistake, follow that up with a good deed. So that the good deed will wipe out the evil deed in our house and at UC versa. Yet the good deeds, wipe out the evil deeds and treat people with good behavior.

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

Now

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

let us look at these bodies of our solar cells and see how we can apply them in our lives. The purpose of all of these lectures is to remind ourselves is for me to remind myself and for you to remind yourself that the purpose of Islam is for us to follow it. The purpose of Islam is for us

00:05:00--> 00:05:06

To live our lives according to it, that's why we call the these sessions leaving Islam, not

00:05:07--> 00:05:35

not acquiring information about Islam or not learning about Islam, but rather learning about Islam with the intention of following it in the intention of leaving Islam. So, that is the purpose of this. So, let us see what we heard in these three, I had this one, when Abdullah Salam said, I have been sent to perfect a righteous behavior. Now, let us look at our own

00:05:36--> 00:05:49

actions and see which are our good actions and what can we do to make them even better? I think the most obvious and the first example is that of Salah.

00:05:50--> 00:05:54

It is the best of the actions inshallah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to

00:05:55--> 00:05:59

accept it from us and to make it easy for us

00:06:00--> 00:06:15

the best of the actions is Salah. Now how can I improve myself? How can I make it better, right perfecting righteous behavior. So Salah is righteous behavior, how can I improve the quality of my Salah.

00:06:17--> 00:06:22

Now, the quality of the Salah is based on or rather the quality is measured into

00:06:23--> 00:06:29

two areas. One is the internal quality of the Salah, and the other one is the external, the external is

00:06:30--> 00:06:54

easier in that sense perhaps because it's visible and we can we can monitor it and measure it which consists of making proper and perfect will do that doesn't mean spending a lot of water. It means doing it correctly. That's all but doing it in as little water as possible is part of the perfection of blue light not

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

know not making widow

00:06:59--> 00:07:00

and wasting of water.

00:07:02--> 00:07:17

So start with that. And then of course it is the the horseshoe and the NEA are going to match it or if you're bringing it up to your place of prayer with the intention of pleasing Allah subhanaw taala and

00:07:18--> 00:07:28

the sincerity to do that only for the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala so this is part of the external then we stand in Salah make sure loads are

00:07:29--> 00:07:51

appropriate and clean. He was a place of prayer is clean. And then we stand before Allah subhanaw taala we go through the entire all the actions of the Salah. I don't have to describe them to you, you know that because you all pray as well. So starting from the seguida harima Allahu Akbar all the way to the Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah

00:07:53--> 00:08:19

making sure that we do all the actions properly and in a state of peace and tranquility. Not in a hurry. Like Sam said, he said, Don't make sudo like, corrode you know, packing or drinking water kind of thing is just wrapped up into such a finish. No, take your time, make sure resources unsaid between the

00:08:21--> 00:08:34

in each of the movements, the bones max must come to rest. So when you make, make Rico and stay there, until the body is at rest, and then you stand up in Sam, and so forth.

00:08:35--> 00:08:49

Similarly, in one of these numbers, racetam said, the worst of the people are those who steal in Salah. So the Sahaba asked him he said Dr. sola How can anybody steal in Salah? Rossum said to do the movements of Salah

00:08:51--> 00:09:12

partially, and you know not to do them properly is to steal in Salah. So you may have seen people who go into loco and they go into Rico, almost instantly, they have stirred up not fully, they just stand up partially and they go into such them immediately, right? So they were to go like this.

00:09:14--> 00:09:26

And then of course the center also is very short, literally tapped up again, between the two pseudo they don't sit up properly, this partly and then back into so all of this amounts to stealing in Salah.

00:09:29--> 00:09:35

Then the other things of recitation of the court are to recite it

00:09:36--> 00:09:44

to the best of your ability, trying to ensure that you recite it correctly. And what we don't know we should learn

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

so that we don't make mistakes, because Allah subhanaw taala is the one to forgive mistakes. So we ask Allah to enable us to recite without making mistakes and if we make a mistake, we ask Allah subhanaw taala for his forgiveness.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

So to ensure that we do that,

00:10:02--> 00:10:15

and then if this doesn't apply to government alone, I'm not talking about reciting anymore. I'm saying when we do our Salah when I'm reciting my, when I'm doing my Salah by myself, nobody's there,

00:10:16--> 00:10:40

and I'm doing my own recitation, it must still be perfect. It's not that we worry about that when we are reciting before you know in front of people and somebody is listening. We This is about our own Salah when I am praying by myself alone in my home, maybe dadgad maybe whatever, the recitation must be perfect, we must make sure that we do it correctly.

00:10:41--> 00:10:45

So also that as we add in Rico and Sergio must be done

00:10:46--> 00:11:43

perfectly and they must be done peacefully and harmoniously and in tranquility, not in a hurry. At least five times seven times. Three is the absolute minimum. So if you miss this one as well, so a big hanabi Allah Allah and think about the rugby you know, as the Glorified is Myra, Glorified is Mayra pure is Myra. So, let's wonder give us this as we had the gifts of Allah Subhana Allah gave us this, so that we may be honored to call Allah as our right Allah did not say he didn't address himself and Robert Allah Subhana Allah Allah knows that Subhana Allah Zi. So therefore, it is something to be thought about. So this is all these are all the external parts of the Salah, which

00:11:43--> 00:11:44

must be perfected.

00:11:46--> 00:12:07

Then we come to the internal aspects of Salah, which is the horseshoe, and Ko, which is the concentration, the dedication, the sincerity, the class of the Salah to continuously constantly while we pray also to make SFR and Toba and ask Allah subhanaw taala, to save us from Korea from showing off

00:12:08--> 00:12:59

from trying to impress people, all of this must be the heart should be cleaned from all of this, I'll be completely pure. And when we stand before it was Raja was there and with a distorted sense of humility, humbleness, you know, broken and spirit scum there as a beggar before on this matter. And to beg Allah subhanaw taala for his mercy, for his forgiveness, for his generosity for his gifts. This is the purpose of salah and to do that five times a day so that we are constantly reminded again and again and again of who is the greatest Allahu Akbar. Imagine this. May Allah bless the chef who gave that lecture, I saw a very small short clip on WhatsApp

00:13:01--> 00:13:43

where this shirt he mentioned that he said which is the word which is the word that you say the most often. And then he said it is Allahu Akbar. And then he mentioned the number of times you see Allah Harbor, in Salah itself, starting from like Buddha Dharma, throughout Salah, except for Sevilla, Herman hamidah and Santa Monica, the sliver did. Other than that, it's not law, but every time we stand up and sit up, and he explained it so beautifully. He said that when I come and stand in the way in standing Salah, I throw the whole world behind my back is Allah Akbar. Allah is the Greatest. This world is not the greatest circumstances are not the greatest political powers are not the

00:13:43--> 00:14:17

greatest economic powers are not the greatest. Right? And nothing is the greatest only Allah is the Greatest, which means that when I'm saying a law but I am cleaning my heart of all massive Allah of everyone other than Allah number one number two, I'm cleaning my heart of all depression and all stress and all fear and all tension, completely totally clear because what tension what fear when I say a lot but everything else is as long as everything else is solid, everything else is is insignificant is

00:14:18--> 00:14:29

is worthless, right? I don't have to worry about the law. Then I decide the Hamden Savalas, Nana Tara, I decided to cut out my MC door to him and then I go

00:14:30--> 00:14:46

in Roku, and then something Allah, Allah Subhana Allah insha Allah Akbar is to do it again. Maybe a thought comes? What about this? Allah Akbar? Close the Vedas is another thought comes. What about Coronavirus? Allah Akbar

00:14:47--> 00:14:56

thought comes What about economic collapse law whatever thought comes What about this government that government what happens if this one gets elected that one gets elected a law awkward

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

no matter who gets elected, no matter what

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

happens no matter what doesn't happen Allah subhanho data is

00:15:05--> 00:15:13

there is no one who is greater than Allah, there is no one who is more powerful than Allah, there is no one who is

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

who can or who can

00:15:19--> 00:15:46

allow harm to come or who can prevent harm from coming other than illness. So when I am standing before Allah and I'm saying Allahu Akbar, everything else pales into insignificance. This is the meaning of perfecting that righteous deed, and that righteous deed is Salah, to understand what we are residing in the Koran, to understand what of the Quran we are reciting, to

00:15:47--> 00:16:02

focus on it to reflect on it to think about it. Right? Think about I mean, there's so many beautiful eyes of the forum, when we when we read the column of Allah subhanaw taala almost any I pick it up, reflect on it and swallow what is Allah telling us?

00:16:05--> 00:16:15

We are gonna say, Well, I'm yours, or lime yours, this is my connection with you. You are a buyer, I'm here I'm here. I'm here. la Vega la mala back.

00:16:16--> 00:16:24

And Allah gave us these words, unless it caught me like this. He said to me, You I am your oil or you are the only one I was

00:16:25--> 00:16:29

the only one whose help I seek, because nobody else can help me.

00:16:30--> 00:16:43

So, this is the beauty and this is what allows rather than telling us and then as soon as Ursula is telling us as far as the, as far as our behavior is concerned, and he said to the man,

00:16:44--> 00:17:04

do not become angry and furious. Now, this obviously applies to anger and fury, because anger and fury is where we our emotions, you know, take take over. And then they we do things, we say things and then we have to weep about that and we have to regret it.

00:17:05--> 00:17:25

May Allah forgive me May Allah forgive us. How How terrible is that imagine the whole of life is being only in this light, the whole of life is going only in getting angry and furious and then making amends for it. stuff. how tragic is that.

00:17:27--> 00:17:42

So to control anger, that is the the the essence of strength. And none of them said the strongest man is not the one who can defeat a wrestler or defeat another person and swim on the ground the strongest man is the one who can control his own anger.

00:17:43--> 00:17:50

Very difficult to do I know it is very difficult to do I mean I'm speaking from my own experience, but if it if we can do it,

00:17:51--> 00:17:58

if we can try to do it, and remember everything, nothing changes overnight. So things over time, it takes time, but inshallah

00:17:59--> 00:18:35

it is you will be successful and last rantala is the one who rewards the effort. So make the effort. Even if you are not successful, it doesn't matter what Allah subhanaw taala rewards the effort so you are getting reward anyway, for the effort that you are making. It is so fantastic Evelyn sisters, human beings don't forgive. Human beings do not forgive human beings carry grudges, they carry them in their hearts, they you know the, the, those grudges are things that they love, but not Allah Subhana Allah does not carry grudges. Allah subhanaw taala forgives.

00:18:37--> 00:18:47

So seek forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala control anger and do not become furious. And the third Hadees which I mentioned to you here is the Hadees of

00:18:49--> 00:18:52

I was on a video where as soon as Islam gave him

00:18:54--> 00:19:21

three different three different pieces of advice. He said have Taqwa of Allah, wherever you are, right? This is the most beautiful advice that anybody can give anybody else I was a very well delana was very special. He was one of the earliest of the Sahaba he was one of the earliest of the modular. He belonged to the tribe of ofr. And he was one of the first people to accept Islam. And he was a very, very strong Muslim Mashallah.

00:19:23--> 00:19:30

He was an ascetic. He was a person who was very strict with himself.

00:19:32--> 00:20:00

And nobody loved him very much. He was a man whose dow was so powerful that thanks to him, the entire tribe of the fire became Muslim. And then one day, as soon as a wrestler was in Medina, when somebody came running in this they brought news and this is a big cloud of dust in the distance and it looks like an army is coming to attack Medina and everyone got very

00:20:00--> 00:20:25

Worried, but when I checked, it was another tribe and that whole tribe had come and that was a tribal Aslam. And this whole tribe came and they said we want to accept Islam. So I asked them who invited Islam what what's the story and they said the tribe of Weaver has accepted Islam. And because they have accepted Islam We will also accept Islam. Now both the river and the Islam or people who are either of us

00:20:27--> 00:21:05

so now it's a it's a twin benefit twin bonus, which is that thanks to the double of our referee on the line who the tribe over refer became Muslim meaning they gave up also their highway robbery. And the influence of that was such that the tribal Aslam also became Muslim. And they also gave up their IV robertson is not only a matter of just changing a religion, but because Islam is a religion of practice. It means also changing your way of life and learning to do good things instead of bad things. But this is

00:21:06--> 00:21:10

such a beloved companion. So have you have

00:21:12--> 00:21:23

such an important one. He's so important in the history of somebody who had such a huge effect on people. And

00:21:24--> 00:21:38

one of the beloved earlier of Allah insha Allah. Everybody's advice doesn't give him the advice he said have Taqwa of Allah whenever you have Taqwa of Allah, wherever you wherever you are into Hola,

00:21:40--> 00:22:07

hazemag. Wherever you are, have the formula. What is the paavola taqwa of Allah, to be concerned about the pleasure of Allah? problem comes because we know I mean, I know all this, but I remind myself that I need to have these speeches that I must think, before I speak, and before I act, because if I don't, the problem is that the problem is yes, I know I must have covered when

00:22:09--> 00:22:45

especially that's the reason why I mentioned these two ideas together, but especially when you get angry, now you may have a reason to be angry, they may it's not to say that you are me after all, you are not insane. So just you won't get angry out of nothing, there is some reason, but when that reason is there and when we get angry, then we react and when we react we do we say something or we do something which obviously does not please Allah subhanaw taala which means that at that point in time, the tub of Allah was not there. Now this is what the wisdom is telling him to say that every time wherever you are, have the taqwa of Allah, have always wherever you are the consciousness of

00:22:45--> 00:23:28

Allah subhanaw taala has presence in your life. Yesterday we talked about filling our hearts with the glory and majesty of Allah, this is dukkha dukkha is to fill our hearts with the glory and majesty of Allah in such a way that we will remember Allah subhanho wa Taala constantly. And when we do that, as I mentioned earlier, many times and I shall mentioned many times, again, two very important things happen. One is that this consciousness of Allah subhanaw taala, has presence in our lives, the consciousness that Allah subhanho wa Taala is with me real time that he's seeing he's watching who was who Samuel bussiere, who alleman visa is pseudo. He is aware of what is in my

00:23:28--> 00:23:49

heart, this awareness, what it does is that it It protects us from sin. Because obviously, if I can remind myself that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching, and last minute Allah is listening, then I and if I'm about to commit some sin, then the obvious

00:23:50--> 00:24:37

result of that is that I will not commit that sin. You know, it makes no sense whatsoever that I remember Allah subhanaw taala and yet I still commit the sin can't happen. So if I'm remembering Allah subhanaw taala then automatically, I don't commit that sin. Or if it is something that has happened, then I immediately make this forum Toba and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive us and we have complete and total faith, that Allah will forgive because Allah promised to forgive. So that is the first benefit of having taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala wherever we are. The second benefit of having taqwa wherever we are, is a sense of confidence, a sense of confidence, a sense of being

00:24:38--> 00:24:50

protected. A string a sense of strength, a sense of being supported, by Allah subhanaw taala, diligent and that is the second benefit of

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

of having taqwa wherever we are, that we have the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala in our lives, and therefore, we are

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

protected and we

00:25:03--> 00:25:18

can then live without fear. Because my allies with me, whatever is happening, Allah subhanaw taala is with me any problem any difficulty Alhamdulillah Allah is with me because this is the benefit of this awareness of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:25:20--> 00:25:21

in our lives,

00:25:22--> 00:25:42

which is the meaning of taqwa. So Solas Arsalan advised him he said, have Taqwa of Allah, wherever you are. And the second thing he said to him was that if you do something bad, immediately do something good. Give some charity, make burrito cup of Salah or whatever.

00:25:43--> 00:26:32

Make is different OVA and then immediately do something good because good deeds, wipe out evil deeds. And that's what Allah subhanaw taala told us in the Quran in de la Surat Yunus. He said, verily, the Hassan the good deeds, they clean and wipe out the evil deeds. So I gave him this advice to say that follow up. So now, even though I have Taqwa, even though I'm conscious of Allah subhanaw taala in my life, but I am human. So I forget and I sometimes say something which I should not have said I do something which I should not have done. I give into temptation, or I forget. And then of course, immediately, I realized now what, immediately as soon as you realize, then immediately make

00:26:32--> 00:26:43

a stuffer make Toba consciously, and then immediately give some further follow up the good deed for the evil lead with something good.

00:26:44--> 00:27:16

As an alibi, Tabitha delana was sitting in the budget. A man came and he started to make boy he said, Yeah, Allah forgive me, Allah forgive me. He called me to community when the man came, he said, said analysis rather, and said to him, this is not how you ask forgiveness. This is not how you ask forgiveness, you ask forgiveness, by, first of all, being conscious of what you did in your heart. And being contrite and being very regretful and feeling very bad about it and being, you know,

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

being very

00:27:19--> 00:27:46

seeking, being feeling ashamed of that I should not have done this, I did it. So being ashamed of that. So one is it starts in the second thing is, is that it's a question of then seeking forgiveness. So if it is something that had to do with Allah subhanaw taala, one of the most amount of data, then you make is too far you ask Allah to forgive you. And if it is something on the other hand, which had to do with people, then you make amends with that person, the person you harmed the person you,

00:27:47--> 00:28:13

you transgressed against the person whose rights you denied, the person who abused or whatever, then go and apologize to that person. Because as soon as I said that, Allah will not forgive until that individual, the person that you wronged until that person forgives you, a love not for you. So seek the forgiveness of that person, that's very, very important. And he said, then,

00:28:14--> 00:28:45

give something good pay, give some charity in a follow up the evil deed with some good deeds, so give some charity and then make us the fart or loss monitor and then come and ask a lot of forgiveness. So this is a, this is the protocol. This is the procedure of gaining the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala inshallah, and finally Rasul Allah racetam said to our refer to Delano, treat people with good behavior, treat people with good behavior.

00:28:46--> 00:29:29

Today, if you look at it, we are having all these, you know, protests in America. Black Lives Matter protests in America, which are anti racist. And it's very important in today's world to be anti racist, not not sufficient. Just not to be racist, we have to actually stand up against racism, and racism based on color is only one kind of racism is not the only kind of racism, racism based in Western culture is one. But other forms of racism are also there, which is discrimination, which is based on the based on religion on political, you know, political

00:29:30--> 00:29:46

leanings of political inclinations, or whatever you support and so on the different kinds of things, there is discrimination based on gender. Women are routinely discriminated against, and so forth. So the point is here, that

00:29:48--> 00:29:51

Islam is against all of this. So no, Islam is saying,

00:29:53--> 00:29:57

treat people with good behavior. So that was saying in this black lives matter,

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

protests that are going on

00:30:00--> 00:30:41

The beautiful story, but I was on one day got angry with Bill Irwin Navara Golan. And he he called him something you know he which we should refer to him in a like a like something like a racial slur, right he called him he called him the son of a black mother or something like this. Now, when this happens and then a Bilal obviously was upset, so he complained to him, as soon as he immediately called, I was on Friday or Delano and he said, Have you gone back to the days of, of jelly? Have you gone back to the day or days of ignorance that you are behaving

00:30:43--> 00:30:45

like people used to do in those days.

00:30:46--> 00:31:29

I wasn't immediately realized what happened. He apologized rasulillah salam, then he went in search of Bilal Delano. And he went to bill out of Illinois and he profusely profusely apologized to Bella Bella Milano for whatever he said. And then he said to bill out of there are no I am going to lie down on the ground. On the on my, with my face on the side, I want you to stamp on my face with your shoe. We seem to be out there, I won't lie down. I want you to you know, put your foot on it on my face and stamp on my face with your shoe now obviously said that our beloved Alanna said No, I will not do that. And he said I refuse to do anything like that. I know God did it. And if you don't do

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

this, I will complete resources.

00:31:33--> 00:31:47

That is good. I mean, you are you came to apologize to me now you want to complain about. So anyway, that is a between the two brothers. And they loved them the Sahaba loved each other more than we love our own brothers and sisters. May Allah protect us. But point I want to make here is

00:31:48--> 00:31:59

that being treating people with good behavior, the Sava two took it took it so seriously, that if something had gone wrong, then to make amends, they went to

00:32:01--> 00:32:07

an extent which can be called an extreme, but they wanted to make sure that their accounts were cleared

00:32:08--> 00:32:20

in this life itself. They didn't want to take any of that with them into the next life. That was the whole point. The whole point was this. Why is why did they insist

00:32:22--> 00:32:40

that say that our biller must do this because I want to finish it here. I want to prove to Alice Renata, that I'm really, really extremely sorry for talking to you like this. And I want you to completely whatever is in your heart. Take it out. Right. Do you agree with me completely express your anger?

00:32:41--> 00:33:01

Don't keep the anger, etc, below, man with a big heart. So he's no, that's actually you have apologized to me. That is enough. I will not do anything of the sort. I am not going to stamp on any any person's face, or anything like this. But the point is that this was the nature of Islam, where he said that even if you do something wrong, yes, maybe you

00:33:03--> 00:33:22

you abused somebody you didn't realize that you were abusing that person, you didn't realize what was happening. Maybe you did that doesn't matter. Make amends, make amends. Do not. Don't carry that with you. Right, if you would, if you did abuse somebody don't carry it with you. Yes, it may have happened. And it may have happened without your

00:33:24--> 00:33:38

what happened without your knowledge. But certainly it can happen. Without your intent. You didn't consciously want to do that you didn't set out to do that. But it happened. But don't let that continue. Stop it immediately. Correct.

00:33:39--> 00:33:40

I think this is the

00:33:41--> 00:33:51

the whole point of it, which is that we need to take hisab of our own lives every day. Man, I recommend this to you.

00:33:52--> 00:34:10

Please try to do this in the in the evening. Sit down and I consciously tell people sit with a piece of paper because that's the best way of recording. Not all these devices sit with a piece of paper and a pen and write down. I'm not saying I'm not asking you to write a diary but write down yours for yourself.

00:34:12--> 00:34:35

Firstly, you write down what did I learn today? one lesson, one life lesson that you learned today. You may have learned it anyway. Maybe it was just a thought that came into your heart or mind. Maybe it is something you read maybe you something watched, maybe something was happening and you were watching it and you learned a lesson whatever it was, maybe somebody said something to you, thanks to that person, you will learn the lesson whatever it was

00:34:36--> 00:34:40

talk about that and say this is what I learned today. Alhamdulillah

00:34:41--> 00:34:45

right, write that down. Then second thing is you write down one thing

00:34:47--> 00:34:54

which the mistake that you may have made and right right now the mistake and write down what you did to correct the mistake.

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

correction of mistakes is to accept the mistake. Yes, I did this wrong.

00:35:00--> 00:35:12

And then to fix it in such a way that you do not repeat that mistake again. Repeating mistakes over and over again is a sign of stupidity and foolishness. I learned myself more than anybody else.

00:35:13--> 00:35:34

Do not try to live your life in a way where you do not make the same mistake twice. As soon as Muslim said the Muslim is the one who's never bitten from the same hole twice, right. So, it is very important for us, let us live our life in a way where we do not repeat our mistakes. We all make mistakes, everybody makes mistakes. And so those are the

00:35:35--> 00:35:41

people are the the most of those who make mistakes are those who make Toba.

00:35:43--> 00:35:47

So therefore, let us be among those who make mistakes,

00:35:48--> 00:35:51

and be among the among the people who

00:35:52--> 00:35:53

regret and who

00:35:55--> 00:36:01

correct their mistakes, and would try not to make any more mistakes. Just as we are living in a world, which

00:36:03--> 00:36:07

seems to be in a sort of tailspin, you know, every day you get news, which is more and more and more negative.

00:36:09--> 00:36:53

Don't, don't, don't focus on that, look at yourself and say, in all of this negativity in this world, what is one positive thing that I can do? What is one good thing one useful thing that I can do, which will help somebody somewhere light which can light up some life somewhere which can benefit somebody somewhere? What is it that one thing which I can do and try and do that? Right? I think if we can do this, inshallah, this is enough for us, that if we can live our lives in a way, where we focus on that's why the whole issue of leaving Islam, I keep telling myself and I tell others that don't worry about others, focus on yourself, focus on yourself. If you correct yourself,

00:36:54--> 00:37:12

then automatically the world will become a better place because you cannot correct yourself then you will do the right things you will see the right things. And because of you the right kind of influence will spread in the world. And this is beneficial beneficial to everybody. The more it spreads, the more people are benefited by

00:37:13--> 00:37:14

government assistance.

00:37:15--> 00:37:30

We do not know how much time we have left. So let us focus on this and act and treat each day as if it is our last and one day will be our last. There is one night.

00:37:31--> 00:37:35

The morning the morning following that night.

00:37:36--> 00:37:37

I am not destined to see

00:37:39--> 00:37:48

there is one morning, the night that is to come after that. I'm not just interested. I don't know which morning it is. I don't know which night it is.

00:37:50--> 00:38:20

But there will be one night and they will be or they will be one morning which will be the last money or the last night of my life. Let us treat every morning and every night as if it is the last because that is how it will be. That's why wrestlers wrestle and use this formula for us. He taught us this formula. He said treat every Salah as if it is your last Salah, pray as if this is your last Salah because one Salah will be your last.

00:38:21--> 00:38:39

treat every Ramadan as if it is to be the last because one will be our last. Just think about our friends or whoever we knew who passed away just after Allah. Did they know that that Ramadan we just left less than a month ago?

00:38:41--> 00:38:45

Did they know that that Ramadan was going to be their last? They didn't know that?

00:38:46--> 00:38:47

Neither do we

00:38:48--> 00:39:18

Neither do we. So when we have something good and the best of what we have is time let us take advantage of that time. Let us make the most of that time. Let us use that time to the best of our ability to get the maximum benefit from that time. Because once it is gone, that is not going to come back and we do not know whether we have anything more in the future.

00:39:19--> 00:39:39

ask Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Allah who would be pleased with you whenever to be displeased and to enable you to do that which is pleasing to Him and to save you from everything we just presented. masala harana will Karim Allah Allah He was IPS main we Rama Tikka Amara camino al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
