Allah says: <> in Surah al-Ankabut also Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala says,

00:00:06--> 00:00:07

< 00:00:08--> 00:00:11

yutrakooo any yaqoolooo aamannaa wa hum la..

00:00:14--> 00:00:26

yuftanoon>> [Q,29:2], this man thinks that it's sufficient for him to say, "we believe and then he's not tested." Allah says, < 00:00:27--> 00:00:40

qablihim fala ya'lamannal laahul lazeena sadaqoo wa la ya'lamannal kaazibeen>> [Q,29:3]: We have indeed tested them before you.

00:00:41--> 00:01:25

before before man before us Allah says we tested all of the people. I mean before this Quran was revealed at the time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah says even before you we tested everyone, in order to distinguish between who is really truthful, and who is a liar. Subhanallah, one might wonder what was the truth and the lie? Well, Allah says, before we created you, we created within you a fitr, nature, naturally, you would think, and you would come back to believing there is a deity, someone made me when I die, I cannot just disappear into thin air, I have to go back to he who made me and I'm going to give my record of deeds, I'm going to say how I did and so on, you

00:01:25--> 00:01:45

know, you go out in the morning from your house, you come back in the evening, and your parents asked you, how was your day? What did you do and why did you do this? And why didn't you do that? And well done for this. And that? Well, Allah's example is far higher. He released you into the earth. And when you go back, He's gonna say what did you do? And how did you do it? Did you worship Me? Did you remember Me? Because Allah says,

00:01:46--> 00:02:03

< 00:02:05--> 00:02:35

ghaafileen>> [Q,7:172]. Amazing verse, Allah says, you know, do you remember that time when we removed all of the souls from the back of Adam alayhis salaam and all of you were there? And we asked you, who is your Lord? Am I not your Lord? And you all answered, Yes, you are. And Allah says, Don't forget this. You don't come back on the day of Qiyamah and judgment and say I don't remember and I don't know. And guess what; we don't remember. But fitrah and the nature makes us go back to it. Ask questions. So don't take risks when it comes to worship.
