Smilla and hamdulillah Asana toss, swinging, he was up here in winter.

00:00:09--> 00:00:13

And your brothers, we have been talking about the decline of loss.

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

And among that yesterday, when Juma we talked about the best decree which is sending Salam Salam on the Prophet salallahu Salam.

00:00:27--> 00:00:33

If you think about it, the greatest of Allah subhanaw taala as bounties upon us

00:00:34--> 00:00:46

is the Bartha of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sending us the Prophet sallallaahu Salam, through whom Allah subhanaw taala guided us and gave us the blessings of Islam.

00:00:48--> 00:00:53

If Allah subhanaw taala didn't grant us any other blessing, that would be more than enough.

00:00:54--> 00:00:59

So one way of showing gratitude is by sending Salah and Salam on the Prophet salallahu Salam.

00:01:03--> 00:01:09

Continuing with that, is one way of remembering Allah subhanaw taala one way of liqueur

00:01:10--> 00:01:16

is to be in a state of gratitude at all times the chakra of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:01:18--> 00:01:22

Allah subhanaw taala tells us that

00:01:25--> 00:01:30

there are people who are thankful and there are people who are ungrateful

00:01:31--> 00:01:38

Allah last month Allah says in Medina who Seville in Masha Quran or in Makkah for

00:01:39--> 00:01:56

that we have guided them to the path and among them are those who are grateful. And those who are Kofoed. Those who are ungrateful, those who cover the bounties of Allah subhanaw taala or deny them.

00:01:58--> 00:02:05

And then at last $1 tells us of what percentage of people are grateful

00:02:06--> 00:02:15

unless $1 says, Kali alum, Mineva the Usha called, there are only a few who are truly grateful to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:02:17--> 00:02:33

Whereas Allah subhanaw taala has also made the proclamation that we all know when Allah Subhana Allah says, What is then our bukem shakar zitten

00:02:34--> 00:02:38

when an Inca farto in diabete Lusha deed

00:02:39--> 00:02:42

giving us one that has made this proclamation

00:02:43--> 00:02:51

that if indeed you are among the grateful unless Montana will increase His bounties on you.

00:02:52--> 00:03:03

And he's also warned us of the other hand, if you deny, and indeed, the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala is very severe.

00:03:05--> 00:03:23

Allah subhanaw taala has used a lot of articles of dark heat of stressing both of these. He's telling us to release the generosity of Allah subhanaw taala in its true sense, you have to show gratitude.

00:03:26--> 00:03:35

Unfortunately, we don't even realize what we should show gratitude for generally, most of us think of material things.

00:03:36--> 00:03:45

And even in that we don't show gratitude, let alone every moment that Allah subhanaw taala is generosity is overwhelming us.

00:03:47--> 00:03:50

There are people who used to respond to a question

00:03:51--> 00:03:57

of how are you by saying we are immersed in the generosity of Allah subhanaw taala

00:03:58--> 00:04:03

the one who gives us even though we don't deserve

00:04:04--> 00:04:09

and our state is that we don't show gratitude to the one who's most deserving.

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

So we should think about this.

00:04:13--> 00:04:36

Guy gratitude is shown first, at the level of the heart, that the club should recognize the bounty of Allah subhanaw taala should properly assign it to Allah subhanaw taala. And to feel gratefulness and to feel overwhelmed by last one that is generosity.

00:04:38--> 00:04:53

The tongue should express it. We should talk about the bounties of last month Allah Allah Subhana Allah tells the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam about this is the end of Surah Doha m b net Amity Rebecca Fahad this,

00:04:54--> 00:04:58

so declare and talk about the bounties of Allah subhanaw taala

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

and that

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

level of the tongue after that we should also thank Allah subhanaw taala and glorify him

00:05:07--> 00:05:08

at all times.

00:05:09--> 00:05:22

And finally, we should show gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala through our actions and through using the bounty of Allah subhanaw taala for his or booty for his worship.

00:05:24--> 00:05:29

So, the worship of the eyes, as they have said,

00:05:30--> 00:05:38

is to reveal what is good, and if the eyes should see something bad, they should veil it,

00:05:39--> 00:05:40

the ears

00:05:42--> 00:05:42

should

00:05:44--> 00:05:48

listen to that which is good and reject that which is bad.

00:05:50--> 00:06:02

The tongue should be used in glorifying Allah subhanaw taala in calling people towards the deen in enjoying good and forbidding what is evil in consoling people.

00:06:03--> 00:06:09

And it should not be used in other ways, like backbiting and slander and lies.

00:06:10--> 00:06:40

Similarly, there is the use of every part of a body in obedience, the hands should not take anything that it does not, does not belong to the person, and it should not withhold from giving the rights of others and the rights of us and so on. Similarly, the use of time, which is the essence of our life, is to be used in the ability of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:06:42--> 00:07:04

And we should recognize not just the physical boundaries and the financial rewards that others want Allah gives us but things like when we do an act of obedience, a good deed, we should not attribute it to ourselves, because that is denial of the topic of

00:07:06--> 00:07:18

that we should thank Allah subhanaw taala truly, if we have done something that is worthy of praise, especially which Allah subhanaw taala inspires us to do.

00:07:20--> 00:07:26

So, someone has said, I don't know what I should show greater gratitude for

00:07:28--> 00:07:41

the best of my acts of obedience, which Allah subhanaw taala enabled me to do, or the worst of my deeds, that he has veiled from people, so that

00:07:43--> 00:07:50

I am of a status of who I am, whereas people have no clue as to my reality.

00:07:52--> 00:07:56

So every moment we should be in Chicago from LA Sanatana.

00:07:59--> 00:08:20

Our acts of obedience or purely inspiration from ALLAH SubhanA. To be able to complete an act of obedience is from Allah subhanaw taala our acts of generosity is because of opportunity that our last month Allah gives, and then open our hearts and our hands, to be able to fulfill that

00:08:23--> 00:08:53

even the difficulties that come to us we should be grateful for because through this loss of anata, Allah is purifying us. If Allah Subhana Allah were not to expose us to these difficult times, we would meet him in a state of a lot of sinfulness. Yet it is His grace that He puts us through hardships so that we may remove our say yet our

00:08:54--> 00:08:56

mistakes our sinfulness

00:08:58--> 00:09:16

every moment, we should be thankful. That's why last one, Allah says when our donor amatola Hey, la sua, it's true that we can never count the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala because we don't even realize the majority of them.

00:09:17--> 00:09:59

So let us be among those few, that Allah subhanaw taala says, are grateful and show gratitude in our hearts to show gratitude with our tongues and to show gratitude without actions to use all of his boundaries in his obedience. May Allah Subhana Allah make us among the sheikh Karine May Allah subhanaw taala make us among the duck Corinne who are always in remembrance of Him and matter last month I accept us as His true slaves that we are and help us to reach him in a state of shock.

00:10:00--> 00:10:03
