So now I want to come over to Qatar everyone welcome back to the faith revival. So this next episode we're going to actually talk about the advice of another prophet other than the Prophet sallallahu wasallam about how a person can guard the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala so this is a long Hadith where the Prophet slicin and mentions Yeah, here it is Salaam john, as john stands up in Jerusalem and he starts to give a speech, and Jesus peace be upon him or SRT Salaam is standing next to him. So imagine the scene and the prophets lie Some said, Everyone comes out to listen to you here. And they fill their balconies and yada yada his salon calls out to them with the commandments,

00:00:43--> 00:01:26

the commandments of prayer, the commandments of fasting, the commandments of the commandment of charity, all of these different commandments. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says, Yeah, and he his Salaam says, amongst the commandments, he says, And Allah commands you to remember him, Allah commands you to remember him. He says, For indeed, the parable of one who remembers Allah is like a man who has been chased down by his enemy. And as he as he's cornered by his enemy, he finds this this fortress that cannot be penetrated, and he jumps behind that fortress, in which he protects himself from them, until his enemy flees away from him out of despair. So imagine a person running

00:01:26--> 00:02:10

away from his enemy and then he gets behind the fortress, and his enemy tries to find ways to get around that fortress and he finds it impossible, until he despairs and runs away. He says, This is like a person when he remembers a lot. He does not protect himself from the shape on except by the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is why vivid remembrance is called heslin Muslim, one of the most famous collections of remembrance of Allah is called fortress of the Muslim heslin Muslim, because the Prophet slicin said your remembrance of Allah is a fortress for you from the shape on if you are constantly in a state of remembrance, then shape on cannot have an entrance

00:02:10--> 00:02:48

inside of U shape on cannot penetrate your faith in any way. And a lot of times people think that, you know, I have to be in an environment where remembrance takes place so that I can remember Allah, but the fact of the matter is that the prophets lie some prescribed Vicodin prescribed remembrance for places that the shaman is likely to get you. So one of the most rewarding times to remember Allah subhana wa tada to do thicket is when you're entering into the marketplace, because a bond can get you in those spaces, right. So doing the draft of a soup the supplication as you enter into the marketplace, when you're doing remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala in a gathering, where people are

00:02:48--> 00:03:29

likely to back by people are likely to gossip. Basically any amount of no playing Rahim Allah says, the vicar of Allah is most important. the remembrance of Allah is most important in the places and times where shavon is most likely to get your faith. Think about that. What is your most likely sin? What is your most likely action to distance you from a loss of Hannah Montana? And how much do you remember a loss of Hannah Montana in those moments? And that's why we go back to our terminal hopital the Allahu taala. And the profits license such shape bond takes another road from shape on cannot even be on the same street as almost because almost always in the zone and armor is always in

00:03:29--> 00:03:52

the remembrance of Allah. And that garment of Eman that the profits license saw that garment of faith is there. He's always protecting himself. And a loss of Hannah Montana mentions and was was Elena's he describes the shape on as the one who frequently whispers and the one who sinks away and has an embassy Rahim Allah says either vecow

00:03:53--> 00:04:29

either laferla was was that when you become heedless shape on whispers what either that Corolla kindness and when you remember a lunch on sinks away and flees away from you think about the fortress and how you're protecting your Imam and think about when you remember Allah and establish a regimen of the remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada in the places and times where shape on usually gets you that's your workplace, you need to remember a lot in the workplace. That's the marketplace you need to remember a lot there. If it's in gatherings, you need to remember a lot there. If it's in the privacy of your home, when you're behind a computer screen, you need to have a regimen of

00:04:29--> 00:04:54

Vicodin something that reminds you to remember a loss of Hannah had to add in those moments and to start speaking or or verbalizing that they could have a loss of Hannah Montana from the heart. So that shape bond cannot penetrate and start leading you away from faith. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us from him and grant us that fortress of Iran and the remembrance of Allah Lama.
