I sit down I wonder at the time of the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu. When they accepted Islam, they had pain coming in their direction from the kuffar. In our lives, there is pain coming from Muslims, Allah, He is happening. I have so many people, they revert to Islam, and then a few weeks down the line they feel Subhanallah you know, it's so hard. Everyone's on my case. Everyone's telling me this, you can't do this. You can't do that. I always say listen, take it in your stride, move at a good pace. Inshallah, as you learn your practice, your journey is your own journey.
For as long as you know you're getting closer to Allah, there are so many born Muslims who are not even where you are today. Not even where you are today. So this is the reason why go easy on others. If you want to be hard on anyone, be hard on yourself, develop your character, your bad habits, you we have not yet dealt with our own bad habits and we want others to deal with their bad habits. I wouldn't be rude to ask you to raise your hands if you smoke cigarettes, but I will tell you that before you leave this hall, if you say I've quit Wallahi you're it. You're successful.
something as minor as cigarettes. Look at the silence in the room. We grew up saying well, it's macro. Its macro. There's so many other things that people are doing. They say, well, it's macro. While it's macro is macro, a decent thing. Is that a good thing? Imagine meeting Muhammad salallahu Salam. Salam aleikum. What do you think you're doing? What on earth? Do you really think? Look at yourself in the mirror? That's what I say. Do you think that you will be meeting Mohamed Salah Salem the way you are all you need to improve yourself I need to improve myself in sha Allah. I hope and I pray that I'm acceptable.
All of us have weaknesses. I might have mentioned a secret but we have others other weaknesses too.
With all due respect to those who smoke, I think I've hit a nerve there are a lot of smokers here. Can't really smell much but anyway.
Nonetheless, my brothers and sisters we are gifted to have the deen of Allah, the day you appreciate the favor of Allah upon you. Just because you have the deen of Allah is the day that you are very, very close to Allah. Even Anita Allah by His will and permission, understand and realize the gift you have Wallahi we have a gift and the gift is not just for me. The beauty of this gift is the more you spread it and the more you give it to others, the greater the reward for you. Perpetual reward, constant continuous reward. So go easy, be humble. Give the message across carry yourself in an amazing awesome way so that it can catch others will see others will follow and you get a full
reward for it. May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless every one of us.
