Smilla Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Ali he was heavy with one one hour bad
habit other than Sisters, we were talking about the issue of DA and what dua to make. Remember the ads which I mentioned to you referring to the VA, which is in the middle of the aisle referring to Ramadan Kareem, but Allah subhanaw taala said with us, Allah Kaiba Danny for anybody. Would you build out a diary that full yesterday? Whoo Lee? Well, you mean OB? La la mia shouldn't? Allah subhanaw taala said when my slave asks about me, I am close to him. So this is the Bashara when we ask about Allah when we are interested in turning towards Allah, Allah subhanaw taala has made it easy, Allah says I am close to him.
Let him ask me what he wants and I will give him and then Allah subhanaw taala put a rider He put two conditions, what are the two conditions for yesterday bully while human OB Allah said let him obey me and then let him have EMA on me
long years ago, so that he may be rightly guided now.
Let us remember these two conditions. It is Allah subhanaw taala as will and wish Allah accepts doors from anybody but the acceptance of the
Allah will even accept the dua of somebody who has been away from Islam, somebody who has disobeyed Allah monitor or somebody was denied Allah subhanaw taala someone who has joined partner with Allah subhanaw taala, the golfer, the mushrik. Allah will accept all their drugs, when they are making repentance, when they are making stuff aren't doba
but that apart for the Muslims,
and again, I'm not the one putting conditions Allah subhanaw taala I'm telling you what Allah subhanaw taala told me and told you and me, and that is full yesterday, bully while you mean we obey and have faith.
And of course Allah subhanaw taala has the power to accept dua in any way he wants to conditions obey and faith. Now think about this. Why does obedience come before faith? Why is it that faith doesn't come before obedience? Because actions
convert the heart
actions change the way we approach Allah subhanaw taala
go to the masjid whether you feel like going to the masjid or not.
That will bring about in you a love for the masjid and Allah for Allah subhanaw taala.
Pray whether you feel like praying or not, because this will bring in you a sense of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala
do a good deed whether you like it or not, for example, that's what I'm saying. Do go to the one who does evil to you give to the one who denies who the who does not give you your right, give it to him. You give it? Why is he saying that? Because the reason why we do something
should be for the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala if I do good to somebody who's doing good to me, there's always a doubt that I did this good not to please Allah but because that person did good. So it's a reciprocity. It's a reciprocal thing that I did.
But if I'm doing if I'm doing good to somebody who actually harmed me or tried to harm me or you know, he denied me my rights, then there's no reciprocity involved. Nobody can say you he was good to him, because that was that was not good trade. So now why was he being good because he wants to please Allah subhanaw taala. So these are hamdulillah
when we do good to them,
to someone who has not been good to us, this is a evidence in our favor.
To say that the Allah, I am doing this only for your pleasure.
Obey and have faith and have you been
obedient to Allah subhanaw taala and even these are the two conditions for the acceptance of dua. Let us use Ramadan
to drill this into us, rather than Kim to teach us obedience. Ramadan is all about obedience.
So don't just blindly fast and you know I'm not I'm not eating or drinking No. Think about what is the actual reason why I'm doing this. I'm doing this to drill into my mind and my head and my heart. That obedience to Allah subhanaw taala is absolutely supreme and nothing supersedes that
I obey Allah because Allah is Allah because I am a slave and His apt you ask Allah to put this into us are some of the Allah will carry while he was a Vietnam era to God
