Mufti Menk – Ramadan 2016 – Save Yourself Series – 25

We are encouraged to speak softly and politely when calling people to Allah so that people might take heed, an example of this is when Allah commanded Musa to speak politely to one of the most arrogant people (Firaun) to have trodden the earth. As Muslims, we are to save ourselves from hell by being among people who prostrate in forgiveness and not be arrogant when it comes to prostration (Salah). True believers are not intimidated to give up their faith because of threats and what people will think about them. One of the secrets of having sustenance is prayer, so keep praying and Allah will increase your sustenance. Save yourself from miserable life and being resurrected blind by not turning away from the reminder (Quran). We were reminded in this episode how all messengers of Allah called to Him in their time of needs and He answered them, so we should learn to lean on Allah, He is sufficient for us and the best disposer of our
affairs. Dear brothers and sisters don’t let your bad deeds over shadow your good deeds and be among the losers on the D day by seeking a lot of forgiveness. Do not be among those who worship Allah on edge, that is they are happy and turn to Him when they are happy but Turn their back on their faith when they are being tested.
