Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakato Bismillah R Rahman Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While early he was happy when my brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala has created within us the love of certain things. People love, for example, their conveyance. People love wealth, they like gold and silver, for example, people love the opposite sex and so many other things that people love. But Allah subhanho wa Taala says that if you were to be conscious of Allah while trying to get that which you love, then you would definitely be in comfort, in contentment, and in the Hereafter, we will grant you paradise. But if you were to try and go and get those things

Then Allah says you're plunging yourself into destruction, and you will take away your happiness. In fact, there will be a crisis.

00:02:10--> 00:02:35

For those who are conscious of Allah is indeed paradise. What that means is when you are trying to achieve these things, you must be conscious of Allah, the rules, the regulations, the do's the don'ts that he has laid, or not laid there in order for you to be distressed, but they are there in order to govern your life and make it beautiful so that you can achieve comfort at all times.
