Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh why Ramadan can change you Part Four, there's no willingness to change. There's no willingness to improve. There's no willingness to become better. I want to bring your attention to one of my favorite verses in the Quran in surah tellurite verse number 11, Allah subhanho wa Taala says laahu mokuba two Min benei a d woman Hol fi for Luna humann amarilla. This verse, it begins that Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses something really important and says To Him belongs to the mark P. But more Acrobat is a term that comes from the word tag people and tag people It means protection. It's talking about the angels. And this is what you and I

00:00:59--> 00:01:43

would call guardian angels. Allah says your guardian angels that you have that protects you that looks out for you, of course by Allah's will. These angels they belong to Allah, and they protect you in front of you, what is behind you and what is all around you Minh Emory law based on the command that Allah issues to them. So this is important because now this sets the tone of what is going to come in the rest of this verse. So you understand how this verse was introduced? A lie so Joel says that the protection that he's blessed you with they belong to him listen to what a lesson next in Holla Holla you Hi euro Malbec, Coleman hattah euro mabie, unfussy him, Allah subhanho wa

00:01:43--> 00:02:32

Taala. Indeed, he will never change the state of a nation or a people unless they begin to instill some kind of change within themselves. Listen to how powerful and how beautiful this verse is a nation, a community, a group can't change unless you start doing that as an individual. So the verse starts off by talking about a group of people. And the verse concludes itself by talking about you as an individual, real change begins with one person at a time. So here you are, let's look at a family. You have the mother or the father, all practicing people, focused, they went through the month of Ramadan, taraweeh, etc. But one problem with that is the child or the children, they're in

00:02:32--> 00:03:14

a completely different world. She's up in her room all day. He's in and out of the house all day and nobody really knows whether they're fasting, whether they're focused, whether they're even praying, nothing. How do you change this focus on one problem at a time, most people like to solve all of this in one or two days. Look at the sun, talk to him understand what his issues are, understand what the problem is, he's dealing with, look at the daughter sit down and speak to her understand what her issues are and deal with them once at a time you do that a lot. So it will bring a slash and correction to the entire family. This is the ingredient that is used to bring success to an

00:03:14--> 00:04:02

entire nation to an entire oma. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala continues. And he says what either or the law will be pohlmann su unfollow model De La Romana hoomin duty he Meanwhile, if Allah subhanho wa Taala really wanted any sort of affliction or trial or evil to be to come upon you. Nothing is going to stop him. Remember how the verse began it started talking talk to you about guardian angels. So Allah is saying and reaffirming his authority over those angels don't depend on them depend on Allah subhanho wa Taala because he's the only one that can really protect you. That is why the the officially concludes will matter home in dooney. He may well, for them, there is no other

00:04:02--> 00:04:46

Guardian except him. subhanho wa Taala. So the verse started off with angels, and it ends off with Allah subhana wa Taala as your real protector. Now listening to all of this, why is it that you can change? You have to really ask yourself, brothers and sisters, if you really want to change, do you have the willingness in your heart the desire to make your life better? You see, I can sit here and tell you yet and Hadeeth but none of it is going to work if you're not willing to listen to it. Think about the example if you sit and you talk to you tell your child, you can't have a boyfriend, you can't have a girlfriend because it's hot on and you tell them all the A yet and all the Hadeeth

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

you know what that child is going to do if they're not willing to listen to you. They're going to pick up the phone after you're done and call their boyfriend, call their girlfriend and say to them, you're the only one that understands me. You're the only one that listens to me.

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

I can't listen to anybody else. Every time my parents talk to me, all they do is lecture me. This is an indication your child's not willing to listen. So you have to ask yourself, you're hearing all of these yet and Hadeeth is it actually instilling or igniting any change in your heart? If not, then understand one thing. There's a possibly possibility, Allah azza wa jal has stamped your heart, from hearing the good things, from hearing the things that will benefit you. Your heart has become desensitized to good information. One of the reasons this happens is because our heart is already cluttered with filthy information. Our minds is cluttered with useless information. So there's no

00:05:42--> 00:06:22

room for good information to be there, you can appreciate it anymore. If you listen to a lecture about the Day of Judgment. Some people compare that to a movie they saw and say, Look, I saw 2012. So what's the big deal? This is because your mind is cluttered, you can't see it. So it's really important for you to ask yourself, if you're willing to change, stop for a moment, and really, really sift out what's in your heart and what's in your mind. You do that. Then the A it's about the birds and the trees, the at about the skies and the earth, about the stars, they're all going to speak to you, no one is going to have to explain to you what these verses are talking about. You're

00:06:22--> 00:06:59

going to see the beauty in the stars. You're going to see the beauty in the trees, you're going to see the beauty analyst creation simply by hearing the verses. And so with that, I hope and I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses you and I with the willingness and the desire always and forever in our hearts in our minds to change to change and become better people. And so as a result, we become a better oma, may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the strength. If you fallen into this problem, and you don't know how to fix it. Stay tuned. And I'll tell you in sha Allah hotel Allah Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
