A brand new Islamic here is just around the corner 1445 history. So I'd like to remind myself and then all of you all with regards to an extremely important deed at this juncture and this deed is known as Bahasa butternuts taking account of yourself. Alma Radi Allahu Anhu is reported to have said hi Cebu and fullcycle Cabela. And to her Cebu take account of yourselves before you are taken into account. Before we are judged in front of Allah subhanho wa taala. before Allah azza wa jal takes us into account our good deeds or bad deeds, it's important that we audit our books that we take ourselves into account. And the pious people of the past. They used to do this on a regular
basis, especially when circumstances would change when new circumstances came about, they would do it. So for example, they would do it at the end of a month. They would do it at the end of the year, why they would even do it on a daily basis. We have certain reports of certain pious people of the past, were on a daily basis as the sun would set, they would address themselves, they would address their new shoes by saying yeah, nefs what have you the sun is setting today? What have you done today? What have you achieved? What have you accomplished in terms of good deeds? What have you prepared for tomorrow, ie tomorrow of the Hereafter tomorrow a Hara the life of the hereafter? When
I stand in front of Allah azza wa jal? What have you prepared? Where did you go wrong? Where did you drift away from the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala What have you said to please Allah azza wa jal and what have you said, that may have, you know, earned you the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala they will take themselves into account.
They wouldn't, you know, live their lives, he'd let heedlessly, you know, almost like bobbing in the middle of the ocean without any any bearings or any any direction, they would constantly take themselves into account. So, you and I, my dear brothers and sisters, as this year 1444 Hijiri comes to an end, we need to take ourselves into account, we need to address ourselves, we need to reflect on the fact that a year has gone past Subhanallah so that translates to one year, reducing from your lifetime.
So how much more time have we got left? That is a question that you cannot answer I cannot answer Kulu nevsun cottonmouth we must reflect on that. Every soul shall inevitability test that I am at the corner you drink cool mouth, so wherever you may be that will reach you well quantum field Guruji macheda All of these ayat in the Noble Quran as Allah says even if you you know roughly translates to even if you were to be in lofty and fortified castles and towers, you can be in the middle of a fortified bunker. But if Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed that that is to reach you, then you will even travel to the bottom of the ocean.
And you will experience death at the appointed time. May Allah subhanho wa Taala beautify our endings I mean, please say I mean.
So we need to reflect on the fact that a year has gone past
and that Allah subhanho wa Taala is blessing us with another year, another 12 months, another 365 days, approximately, if you will,
fresh opportunities, fresh chances to mend our ways to turn to him in Tober and it is still not too late. Why because the doors of Toba are still open. Allah is waiting for us to turn to him in Toba to seek his forgiveness to mend our ways to turn over a new leaf. It's a new chapter 1445 history
and yes, you may have drifted in the past year in the year 1444 history. You may have not prayed on time. You may have
you know, committed
certain sins you may have gone wrong.
But reflect on the words of your messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or slave of Allah or believer or follower of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam do not lose hope. Do not lose hope. Shaitaan wants you to lose hope but you must be stronger and greater than that. Do not lose hope. Reflect on the words of your messenger. Here are his words.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a reporter have said
he talks about every, every every son of Adam khulumani Adam, Hatha, every child of Adam is a sinner. We're Hyrule Hatha in a Toba bone. And then the Prophet salallahu Salam goes on to say, and the best of those sinners are those who were Boon
are the ones who indulged in Toba are the ones who repent in Allah, you hate Buddha ouabain Indeed, Allah loves those who repent those who turned to him in Toba. So my Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam as we come close to the end of this year, let us reflect let us take ourselves into account. Let us turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala in sincere Toba let us prepare ourselves mentally, physically and spiritually for this new year that Allah subhanho wa Taala is blessing us with 1445 Hijiri. It does prepare ourselves to make the most out of it in terms of good deeds in terms of positivity, in terms of getting closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. And as we take ourselves into account,
as we take ourselves into account, we must reflect on where we went wrong.
What we need to work on,
if it's your Salah that you need to work on then focus on your Salah. If it is your relationship with the Quran that you need to work on, then improve, enhance that relationship.
If it is your heart that you need to work on, then work on your hearts. If it is your tongue that you have to work on, then work on your tongue. Each and every one of us we know of the demons that we are battling with. So we need to work on those things. We need to fight those demons harder.
If you know as you're taking yourself into account that you have wronged so and so you have heard so and so. Do not let
the sun set on this year
with that negativity with that hurt with that pain. rather put that wrong right my dear brother, my dear sister, take the higher ground. be the better person.
Know that if you have made a mistake. Swallow your pride. Crush your ego and go and seek forgiveness apologize.
If your relationship with your mother has gone bad, don't wait. Because you may not live to see another day. She may not live to see another day, another day. Many things if things have gone sour Mendham immediately go seek her forgiveness say sorry, say sorry. And patch up.
If your relationship is strained with your father mend it. If your relationship with your siblings are strained mend them. If your relationship with your spouse is strained mend it. Eliminate toxicity as much as possible. distance yourself from toxicity. Focus on the greater things.
Stay away from bad habits stay away from gossiping. Stay away from holding grudges stay away from envy, envy, hatred, jealousy. Berge, your life, your heart, your soul and your mind from all these negative and toxic qualities of thinking bad about others of judging others of looking down upon others of you know, being proud of yourself. Subhanallah stay away from all of this as much as possible. Strive to be a pure hearted kind individual, my dear brother, my dear sister.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala help each and every one of us to do this mean? May he help us to reflect on our lives to take ourselves into proper account before this year ends 1444 Hijiri and may he help us? We sincerely pray he helped us to turn over a new leaf to mend our ways to turn to him in sincere Toba and to make the most out of this brand new year that is around the corner 1445 history and the years that are to come that remain in our lives may help us to make the most out of these years preparing for the beautiful life of an era which is full of bliss and happiness.
