mudman a person who is addicted to intoxicants of any nature and they don't even have a plan to actually quit it or to seek the forgiveness of allah and you're coming in for example on an auspicious occasion people are all being forgiven but you're not being forgiven why there is a problem there's a barrier subhanallah what is that barrier you don't have an intention to quit the bad that you are addicted to in terms of that which is intoxicating or sinful you don't have an intention that's why my beloved brothers and sisters remember one thing when you are doing something wrong habitually
as a movement at least feel in your heart what i'm doing is wrong allah he that feeling will save you you see what i'm saying because the first time you committed the sin you feel guilty the second time the guilt is less the third time the gift is even less the fourth and fifth and sixth time guess what happens you don't even feel it's a sin anymore it's just becomes nature so allah says when you feel bad with your sin it's a sign that you're a believer why would i feel bad because i love allah i have a weakness but i love allah i want him to forgive me strengthen me and don't just make do
