Salam Alaikum, not every day will be the same. We're just human beings. So a day you feel very, very close to Allah and you feel energized to engage in acts of worship, and you feel like you want to do so much recitation of Quran, your Salah, your dress code, and so much more, and you feel that way. And another day, you might feel lower, you might not feel as strongly as you felt the previous day. That's because you're just a human being, in order to ensure that we maximize whatever goodness we can come up with. And we can do, we must make sure we're in good company. And we always make sure that we interact with good things through the day. So try to stay away from bad company, stay away
from negativity, and don't be party to that which is displeasing to Allah. don't associate with that which is displeasing to Allah, don't do sinful things. Don't watch that, which is not nice. Don't waste your time watching things that are going to take you away from Allah. Be careful, my brothers and sisters, if you want to be a person who is empowered a lot, learn to listen to an empowering, encouraging lecture perhaps, or a lesson or verses of the Quran and so on. And that's what the lectures and lessons are derived from. And this is taken from the lives of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, who used to feel energized when they used to hear a good
motivation from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they said that to him, that when you talk to us, you know, it's as though we can see Jenna and jahannam heaven and hell in front of us, and we are so energized to do good. And then after a time, we actually become weakened. That's because we are human beings, the same thing happens to us, maybe on levels that are far worse. But we're just human, learn to turn back to Allah to seek His forgiveness and remember, work on yourself. The general movement should be a movement that is forward closer to Allah inching forward that which is empowering you, developing you that's the general movement. That's how it
should be not backward. Don't go back on your achievements. No, don't go back on what you used to do for the pleasure of Allah. Try to increase it every day in such a way that the last day you live on Earth, you would be upon the highest level you ever were. May Allah grant that to us and May he be pleased with us. It's just normal when you fluctuate in feelings, but there's a way of working towards improving that. inshallah. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
