insha Allah just a short reminder for myself and everyone here, ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala that he makes us amongst his very bad as Allah says in surah, Zuma Alladhina SME on our own for yet we own Asana, there are those who listen to the word and they apply it, they listened attentively and they apply in the best way. Ask Allah Subhan to make us amongst them, I mean, no, but I mean, you know Subhanallah today we always hear about people going away from Allah subhanho wa Taala and usually a comes after they are going through some tough times in their life. And you know, subhanAllah it got me thinking that why is it that when we are going through tough times in our life, instead of coming

00:00:38 --> 00:01:21

closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala many of us we distance ourselves from Allah subhanho wa taala. And eventually I came to this realization and conclusion that it really comes down to this flawed mentality that we have, when it comes to our Elpida that when we talk about why do we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala if someone were to ask you, why do you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and if you say that I worship Allah because Allah gave me Islam, Allah gave me so many benefits Allah gave me so many neuromas, then that is actually a wrong answer to begin with. The reason why we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala is because Allah it deserves to be worshipped. And before this dunya was

00:01:21 --> 00:02:05

created, even when this dunya is gone. Allah deserves to be worshipped Allah subhanho wa Taala as the Prophet SAW Salem, when he was when he used to be in pm late at night, I Aisha Radi Allahu anha could hear the Prophet Islam making this dua in his sujood in the middle of the night. So behind the color, see Santa Ana alayka. And to come as Anita Allah enough sake, that you are you we No one needs to praise you, in order for you to be praised. No one needs to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala for ALLAH SubhanA wa to be grandeur. In fact, another Hadith would say Allah mentions that if everyone were to become the most evil on earth, it will not affect Allah subhanho wa taala. So the

00:02:05 --> 00:02:50

reason why we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala is because Allah deserves to be worshipped. Yes, we also worship Allah subhanho wa Taala to think Allah subhanho wa taala. And that comes secondary. But the reason why I'm talking about this is because many of us when we talk about our problems, we say that I pray to Allah. Yet Allah does this to me, I do this, I read Quran Yet Allah brings calamities upon me, and I do and we talk about the things that we do for Allah subhanho wa Taala not realizing that we are supposed to unconditionally worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and this relationship is not based on transactions, it is not a transactional relationship that we have with Allah subhanho wa

00:02:50 --> 00:03:37

Taala that if Allah gives me then I will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is why in sootel hij ALLAH SubhanA wa talks about those people who have weak faith, and he says Wamena Nassima Yabut Allah, Allah Harf there are those who worship Allah on the edge. They're always on the edge for in a Saba who hide if there is good that comes to them in life. If I'm unhappy, there are so peaceful life. We're in Assad, but who fits now. But if a fitna and a challenge comes our way, in ColorBar Allah wa Ji their hearts began to question Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is why going forward, we need to always realize that if Allah gave us nothing, if Allah gave us nothing for I mean, besides

00:03:37 --> 00:04:24

Iman, if Allah didn't put all the difficulties in our life, upon our on our plate on our shoulders, yet we don't have the right to say to Allah that I've done you favors I pray salons for you. And this is how you treat me in return. This is not a question that can come to our heart and then we cannot even ask on our tongue. Why? Because once again, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada we worship Allah, not because of what we have, because of who he is, And subhanAllah think about the angels to the angels are a man look, they are a creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala their only purpose of their creation is nothing but serving Allah subhanho wa Taala And subhanAllah. Think about even the angels when the

00:04:24 --> 00:04:59

time comes, when the Trumpet will be blown, and everything will collapse on Earth, even at that time, the angels will collapse and at that time when they will come and before actually when that happens. It says in a hadith that they will say so behind the KR Robina the O Allah ma but the NA Kahakai biotic despite the fact that they have been engaged in riba all their life till that point, the outlive so many of us here on earth, yet when they get to that time, they will feel as if they have not done enough for ALLAH SubhanA wa

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

To Allah yet today we feel the 30 years, 40 years, 50 years 60 years we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala perhaps one hour a day, out of 24 hours we worship Allah one hour a day we do a little more extra in Ramadan and we feel like that we have done a favor for Allah subhanho wa Taala let the life of Ibrahim Ali Islam it is the month of the justo let the life of Ibrahim Allah use some be an example for us. Let the life of the prophet saw Selim being example for us. And every single other Prophet mentioned in the Quran. No matter what situation they were placed in, they will always come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala they never question ALLAH SubhanA what to Allah. So next time we

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

are in a situation and shaytaan comes to us and says that you do so much for Allah subhanho wa Taala and what is Allah? What does Allah give me you in return? Allah has put challenge after challenge upon you. And so this is when a person will want to go away, let that be an opportunity to come close to Allah subhanho wa Taala and finally, you don't this hadith the Prophet son will always hear in normal Arma luminette talking about the importance of intention. Intention also means that when I worship Allah I do it because he used to be worship, not because I want something from Allah subhanho wa Taala today I mean we find this even the Quran Allah says the nature of a human being is

00:06:22 --> 00:07:04

such that they don't worship Allah, but when the time comes that they are under challenges, they come to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says Allah Maka Schaffner and will Dora. Allah removes a difficulty maraca Allah Mia the owner in our door a Messiah, they resort to their own natural, their old habits and their old personality. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that this is the nature of a human being. But that is why we need to apply sincerity in our life. We we have this sincerely in our life and in our heart that I worship Allah, no matter what the situation is, think about even in this dunya imagine if someone came to you, and they were only nice to you. They only did favors for

00:07:04 --> 00:07:45

you, whenever they needed something from you, how you, any of us will feel that we're being used, any of us will say that this person is selfish. Think about Allah subhanaw taala when he sees that he has given us every single thing that we have in our life, every single blessing that we have, it is from Allah subhanho wa Taala Yet Allah says that this person, this human being, he only comes to me when he needs me what a selfish person this person is. So that's why always remember that we are being created by Allah subhanho wa Taala and we and Allah subhanho wa Taala we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala not because he has given us these things, yes, these are secondary, but we worship

00:07:45 --> 00:08:04

Allah subhanho wa Taala because he is he deserves to be worship, we worship Allah not because of what we have, but because of who he is. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he cleans our heart may Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us on the set fast on the right path. Um, you know, but I mean, does that Kamala Hey Assalamualaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh
