Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah well Allah Allah He was heavy on Manuel, but
my brothers and sisters,
we continue with taking stock on our habit change. And let me talk about the other two most important of those one is where we earn from. And the second one is
what we eat and drink, so earn and spend, eat and drink.
In Ramadan we tried this we made you made the effort and you made the NIA insha Allah to remove all haram
means of earning from your life.
Right we made this near but we will not earn Hara
rather than gives us the opportunity to reflect that our OB Jalla Jalla, who
is another for the coverted Mateen. He is the one who is the Creator, the Sustainer, the maintainer, the protector, the supporter, and he does not need us to indulge in something which is haram in order to feed us. Allah subhanaw taala has the power to feed us. And he didn't ask for our help. On the other hand, I was right that I said I created you for My worship you do that I will feed you. I'm not asking you to feed me. So let us take stock. Have we got out of all haram in our lives, in our earnings in our businesses? If we have borrowed money on interest, Are we closing those loans? What is the plan
do not leave Ramadan without a clear plan of how to get out of haram.
What you can get out of straightaway get out of it, throw it in the garbage,
what may require some more legal, you know, efforts and whatnot or whatever you need to do make sure you do that.
Similarly Alhamdulillah throughout all of that you did not eat halal because Allah said don't eat in this time period you did not drink Halal because Allah said do not drink during this time period.
What about eating something which is not halal or drinking something which is not halal? I know you will not inshallah deliberately eat something which is haram. But eating doubtful things is as bad as eating as long as it doesn't upset do Halal is clear that I was clear. Between them are the doubtful things the one who indulges in the doubtful things is actually indulged in the hub. So let us not fool ourselves and stay out of eating or drinking anything which is doubtful.
It is our responsibility. It's not the responsibility of the government, it's not the responsibility of somebody else is our responsibility to ensure what goes in his mouth is hella
right. So ensure that if you have a doubt, don't eat it.
Don't eat it. Now I'm not saying die of starvation, nobody's dying of starvation, we are all on diets because we want to lose weight. So let us let us not fool ourselves nothing will happen even if you don't eat the whole meal nothing will happen to you. As a matter of fact, what will happen to you will we will be good. Not bad. So if you are not sure of the food of what you are eating don't touch it don't go near it
same thing with drink don't drink stuff with secret formula. Right? How sad how tragic that we fast all day and then you break your fast with the Coke or Pepsi? Something with the secret formula in it. We don't even know what is that? How can a Muslim drink or eat something that he doesn't know.
And I've seen this one I mean this is such a such a shameful and tragic thing. I've seen Alama
scholars of Islam are breaking their fast with Coke and Pepsi. How horrible is that? Please don't do that. Don't fool yourself on halal, spend Halal eat halal drink Halal then Allah subhanaw taala inshallah will accept your doors and Allah subhanaw taala will accept God by that and when you raise your hands to ask then your hands will not come down unless Allah subhanaw taala gives you what you asked for. Put that over to that power into your da by earning halal and eating Allah. If you earn haram and odd eat haram. Your dua is not valid, it is not accepted. Your dua is rejected. Please don't do this to yourself. I ask a lot of our intelligence to be pleased with
Thus and never to be displeased with Allah Allah Allah Allah will carry while he was going to have to go
