We begin by praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, declaring that none has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him. Subhana And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is his final messenger and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to send his peace and blessings upon him. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to join us with him and his companions and his family in the highest level of Jonathan for a dose

00:10:41--> 00:11:21

Allahumma Amin, their brothers and sisters, if you notice every hotma that we start with, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to do well so allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to mention the verses that command and enjoined people to have Taqwa to have fear of Allah subhanaw taala, and to have piety and awareness, and it's also no secret that each and every single one of these ayat and if you think about them as we go through them, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to each and every single one of the commands to have Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala. And to be aware of Allah subhanaw taala is immediately followed up with a command and with an action

00:11:21--> 00:11:58

item, and with a manifestation of that taqwa in the way that you deal with people and in the way that you deal with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So for example, you already know I'm an otaku. Allah wa Kulu Kolon studied, that a person would speak well, if they have Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala. It would affect the way that they talk it would it would affect the way that they talk about people the way that they talk to people, the way they talk about Allah and the way they talk to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, taqwa should affect the way you speak. Allah Subhana Allah Allah also, when he mentioned a tough word, the next verse, you know, Allah azza wa jal talks about what Quran

00:11:58--> 00:12:42

Allah Tala Alikum is going to be done for Allah for being Apollo become for us, but when we near Marathi, he one Allah subhanaw taala mentions how people's ego is lifted through taqwa and how hearts are joined, and brotherhood is formed and the bonds of friendship and the bonds of the Ummah are formed through Taqwa of Allah subhanho to Allah. Allah azza wa jal starts off one of the most detailed sewage one of the most detailed chapters in regards to commandments and objectives and laws that we find in the Quran. Surah Nisa with a verse of Taqwa to fear Allah subhanaw taala and to be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala and to be aware of Allah subhanho wa taala. The point is dear

00:12:42--> 00:13:22

brothers and sisters, Allah azza wa jal is mentioning the manifestation of Taqwa in our everyday lives, and in everything that we do. And obviously, you've heard this verse Now as we come to the last Friday of Ramadan, over and over and over again cootie Valley como si amo, Kemah kuchibhotla, La Nina and publikum la isla come Tatacoa that the entire purpose of fasting the reason why it was prescribed for you, as it was prescribed on every nation that came before you and Subhanallah Can you imagine how many owners have come before us how many nations how many prophets, each and every single one of them had a commandment to fast because they're because fasting achieves that very

00:13:22--> 00:14:03

specific objective of having Taqwa of Allah subhanho wa taala. It truly is, you know, it truly is magical. And what it can bring out of a person and what it can do to a person after 30 days And subhanAllah many lives change through them Allah and many people do change through fasting. Nothing makes you as aware of Allah subhanaw taala as aware of his blessings of his blessings upon you as aware of the sins that he told you to stay away from nothing makes you more aware of them, like fasting does. So Allah azza wa jal says he prescribed it upon you the way he prescribed it for each and every single OMA that came before you so that you may gain a sense of Taqwa so that you may fear

00:14:03--> 00:14:41

Him so that you may be aware of him so that you may gain a sense of consciousness and Subhanallah what that tells us right away is that if that goal of tequila is not realized through your fasting, then your fasting was in vain. If that goal of tuck was not realized, it doesn't matter if you can sit back and say you know what, I read the Quran. You know so many times in Ramadan I finished it five times or even two times or three times I finished reading the entire Quran, or you know what I pray tell them we every single night this year, I caught the tahajjud every single night I did this I did that. I mean this they could I achieved all of those goals and this Ramadan. If the goal of

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

Taqwa is not realized through that, then fasting is in vain. Now Subhanallah it's not too late and many of you are thinking, Well, you know, what does that mean? Everything I've done up until now is basically out of the window. No because Taqwa is something that can be realized through sincerely

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

So But at any moment of your life, and it's something that can continue far beyond Ramadan, and that's why the command to have it is expressed throughout the year. It's not just expressed within Ramadan. And when we talk about Taqwa when Mr. Little the Allah Tada and when he said that the Sahaba as they heard the prophets, lice and I'm constantly, you know, telling people to have Taqwa of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And Allah azza wa jal obviously constantly reminds us to have Taqwa of him. Subhana Allah to Allah. They asked the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. What exactly is taqwa? How do we describe Taqwa? How do we describe this piety, this fear of Allah subhanho wa

00:15:36--> 00:16:16

taala. And this hadith is an Al Hakim, the prophets I send them says, and you'll know that Allah subhanaw taala is to be obeyed and not disobeyed. It starts off with obeying the commandments of Allah subhanaw taala the obligations that Allah Subhana Allah has placed upon you without disobeying Him. When you've caught off Allah you answer, and that's the harder one, that Allah subhanaw taala is remembered and not forgotten, that you constantly remember Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and you don't forget Allah subhanho wa taala. Now the problem with that is that you know, as you go through the motions of life, there are times where you're naturally not paying attention. And you're

00:16:16--> 00:16:50

naturally not you know, you're not remembering Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in the sense of spiritual thicket in the sense of, of mentioning the remembrance the phrases of remembrance of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Is that what the prophets lie Selim is talking about that, you know, in every single moment, if you don't say Subhan Allah and hamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Akbar, you're a failure and you don't have Taqwa. That's impossible for us as human beings to achieve. But rather as the amount of time Rahim Allah said, that as you go through those motions of life, as you go through them or on the law, as you go through your interactions, your social

00:16:50--> 00:17:31

interactions, the way you deal with people, you are always conscious of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah as you deal with everything that comes to you. So it's not necessarily the mention of Allah subhanaw taala because Taqwa is never is never restricted to the tongue. But rather it's how you act. It's how you carry yourself. That the Mothman the believer, even as he's at his workplace, as he's approached with a situation out of nowhere, right away when he sees the Allah subhanho To Allah is going to be disobeyed. When he sees that he's in a position where his Deen has been compromised, it clicks. It's like spidey senses, right? It just comes up right away. And

00:17:32--> 00:17:53

we find that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah constantly mentioned a top what particularly in the way we deal with people. Okay, so Allah azza wa jal mentions it in the way we deal with our financial dealings, the way we deal with our children. If everyone can please move forward in sha Allah to Allah, we're filling up pretty fast. So if we can please move forward in sha Allah to Allah, as much as we can.

00:17:57--> 00:18:35

And so Allah Subhana Allah to Allah expects that behavior from Allah azza wa jal expects that mindset from you that in Ramadan, whenever you're approached by someone who challenges you, or who uses idle speech with you, or who uses you know, harsh language with you that you say in the salt, and that I am fasting, and outside of Ramadan, the same things that you're approached with the same things that you face, instead of saying in the slot and you say me Muslim, I'm a Muslim. Right, you know, and it's Hala. It's funny because a lot of the A lot of times the things that we debate about whether or not they're halal or haram, they're clarified in Ramadan, because we stay away from them

00:18:35--> 00:19:14

while we're fasting. Right, you know, I can't do that while I'm fasting. So for example, I want smoke while I'm fasting. But I'll still argue that it's not haram. I won't listen to this while I'm fasting, but I'll still argue it's not how I'm fasting right now. That's why I can't do this. I'm fasting right now. And then Subhanallah after Ramadan, you're not fasting anymore. And again, you're missing the entire point. Allah azza wa jal just showed you what you're capable of abstaining from, for 16 hours a day. Why can't you abstain from it outside of Ramadan? Why now? Why are you going back to it was not the point was that the goal? Absolutely not and Euskara. When you answer that you

00:19:14--> 00:19:57

constantly remember Allah Subhana Allah that Allah is always on your mind that Allah has always in your heart with everything that you face. So when you encounter a situation, I am almost like, I can't do that. I can't act that way. I can't cheat. I can't treat people like that. I can't act in this manner because I'm a Muslim the same way in Ramadan as I was saying, I am fasting in the salt. Now there's a very interesting idea in particular and SubhanAllah. You hear it? Every single Juma and I mentioned it in the beginning. When Allah subhanho To Allah says yeah, you Alladhina amanu it tuck Allah, Hakka to ka t. This is this is frightening. Because out of all of the commands to fear

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

Allah subhanaw taala have Taqwa of Allah subhana wa

00:20:00--> 00:20:33

Add, this one adds a new component to it. Because you know a lot of times the way we view tuck one the way we've viewed on mobile and much of what our Dean becomes is what we want to do for Allah subhanho to Allah, not what Allah subhanaw taala requires of us. Religion is more about how you feel, not what Allah Subhana Allah Allah commands of you, and demands from you. And so we find this command here where Allah Subhana Allah says fear Allah, it took a lot to it, the way Allah subhanho wa Taala added deserves to be feared.

00:20:34--> 00:21:16

Can you you know, that's such a terrifying standard for Allah subhanaw taala to set for us to say fear Allah the way Allah deserves to be feared the way Allah should be fear. And subhanAllah we find that when this idea was revealed, the Sahaba felt such Masako they felt such hardship that they would push themselves beyond the limits in their worship. And so there's a lot when it started to become obsessive, there's the app, they started to go to heights and bounds that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not command them to do. And they always felt the sense of shortcoming. They always felt that they were troubled. And that's why it's very interesting that

00:21:16--> 00:21:55

this is the only idea and sort of early Emraan, that the majority of the scholar says when Sue has abrogated the one idea and this entire Surah that had been Abbas will be allowed to either unhorsed and Imams John Clayton have all been, you know, most of the scholars, the majority of them, they say that this idea is actually an abrogated idea. Even though the Prophet spice and I'm continuing to use it, but you know, it's not abrogated in the sense of meaning it's abrogated in the sense of law. Allah subhanho wa Taala did not place that expectation on us and Allah azza wa jal abrogated it with what I have What did Allah subhanaw taala say to abrogate it? Allah azza wa jal said, fetac when law

00:21:55--> 00:22:39

must apply to fear Allah as much as you can. We don't stop reading the AI. We don't stop reminding everyone that and ourselves that we shouldn't be trying to meet that standard, where we are worshipping Allah Subhana Allah as he deserves to be worshipped, where we are obeying Allah Subhana Allah to Allah where we are as he deserves to be obeyed where we are, you know, where we are trying our best to motivate ourselves, but because the Companions felt such hardships, because of their sincerity to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah Allah azza wa jal revealed fedtech Allah Mustafa atom So fear Allah as much as you can. Now let me tell you with the the problem with the usage of this idea

00:22:39--> 00:23:16

now, most of the time, most of the time people say fear Allah as much as you can when they're involved in sin. You know, what I'm involved in a little bit of Riba. I'm involved in a little bit of interest a little bit it's okay that tuck Allah Mystile platinum fear Allah as much as you can we live in this country. It's really hard to get out of that. You know, look, I'm not committing outright Zina, I'm not I'm not committing outright fornication or adultery. We're just dating. We're just going out with Allah homicidal thoughts on fear Allah as much as you can. Right? I'm fearing Allah as much as I can. Right? This is the best that I can do. But then look at the context of this

00:23:16--> 00:23:57

idea. And if you read some how to love the idea that comes before and this isn't sort of tied to love and Allah so it just says intimate and welcome to confit. Nettuno Allah and the whole, a general theme. Allah Subhana Allah says your wealth and your children are but a trial there a test. And Allah Subhana Allah has with him a great reward factor, Allah humma stata Artem Sophia fear Allah as much as you can. Meaning this is what it's actually trying to tell you is that you cannot worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah with the same level of determination at all times of your life. It's only natural that when you're at home that one year with your spouse's that when you're with

00:23:57--> 00:24:35

your children that whenever you're out at work that you're not going to be able to fear a loss of Hannah which Allah as much or remember a loss pannacotta or worship Allah subhanaw taala as much and for us that might not pose a big problem but the Sahaba had a major faith crisis with that why you find the you know, the famous Hadith I'm just gonna paraphrase it because we've all heard it so many times of hamdulillah the Allahu Taala right who said Nafa HANDLER handler has became a hypocrite. He's become a hypocrite why? Because your suit Allah whenever we're with you, and I will back it up the Ultra and we thought the same thing right? Whenever we're with you the way we think about

00:24:35--> 00:24:43

Allah's France out of the way we remember Allah subhanaw taala you know, the way that we're worshiping Allah Subhana Allah, the Eman rush that we feel,

00:24:44--> 00:25:00

is incomparable to any other time when we go back to our homes and then we go back to our families and then we get back to the real world. We don't feel it anymore. We don't do as much as we do in your presence. Right and what did the prophets I said I'm say to Humboldt or the Allah Tala annual

00:25:00--> 00:25:35

If you were to stay in the same state, as you are in my presence, the melodic and the angels, you know how they come down on data together, they wouldn't just come down and they live together. They wouldn't just descend on your gatherings, they would shake your hands in the street. It's impossible. There's no way you could be that holy. It's absolutely impossible. It's a standard that cannot be met by a human being, just by the nature of our obligations and how we're created. I'm the love No, I'm gonna be also the Allah to Allah and for the young man with so much zeal, Subhan Allah that the prophets I send them had to calm him down and tell them to to lower his standard because

00:25:35--> 00:26:15

he's not going to be able to meet it and he's going to burn out who was fasting every day? Who was reading the entire Quran once a day? Right, who was who was Subhanallah praying the entire night to a point that his family felt neglected by him and also lost I Salam had to calm down his zeal had to bring him back down. And what does he say after the Prophet SAW Selim passes away? He says the Hadron ama William Herbert, Ilya mammoth, lay him out. Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam he said, For me to be able to do a good deed today is twice as beloved to me as when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was alive. Why? Says the Anaconda man rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:26:15--> 00:26:56

Yamuna and Astra well that to him when a dunya when the prophets I send them was with us. All we thought about was the hereafter we didn't care about the dunya. But now the dunya has engulfed us from all sides. Meaning what the Eman rush that you felt when the prophets like Selim was around you, the closest to Allah you felt when you were looking at the best of Allah's creation, observing him, you know, seeing his smile sallallahu alayhi wasallam seeing his very bad that you know, it motivated everyone around him still Allah Azza wa sallam, even more so than Ramadan could do with us. Because there's a person in front of you that represents perfection. And so naturally, when you

00:26:56--> 00:27:34

see perfection in a person in front of you, you want to meet that perfection. And the Sahaba felt they were you know, they were terrified of what Allah would do to them because they could not worship Allah subhanaw taala with that same tenacity when they weren't with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that's the context of this ayah feta Kola must apply to them. Fear Allah as much as you can meaning worship Allah as much as you can we find it in our salah. If you can't pray standing up, you don't just say oh, well, no Salah for me, no, you pray sitting down, you can't pray sitting down, you pray lying down. We find it in our sleep in our fasting, right? If you're

00:27:34--> 00:28:09

traveling you're sick, then you know what you at that moment you don't have the means you don't have the capability you make it up later on. And if you're permanently sick, then you offer a fit. Do you offer a compensation? We find that in ours that cap if you don't meet the threshold for Tacoma, homicidal thoughts on fear Allah as much as you can, it's okay. Allah azza wa jal is not going to overburden you, not in your Salah, not in your fasting, not in your Zika not in your hedge. These are the these are the greatest obligations. These are the pillars of a snap. For Tuffle law must apply to them. Do as much as you can, in your Cleon would lead the prophets I send them he said,

00:28:09--> 00:28:41

what the prophets of Allah and he was send them said that whenever you stop knowing what you're saying, and you get really, really, really tired, and you're just holding yourself up, and you're leaning on the guy next to you and you're falling asleep here and there, then at that point, leave your job. That's not the time to be doing that doesn't mean watch movies all night and then make the excuse that you can't take the lead because you're tired. No, I mean, subhanAllah you tried you woke up You did everything that you you couldn't do to enjoy your piano and you're tired, but you know what it got to a point where instead of reciting Quran you were talking about yesterday, and you

00:28:41--> 00:29:18

woke up and your eyes open, and you were in Korea, AMOLED take a break. Prophets lie Selim is teaching us that sup Allah, muscle Titan in changing things around you. And changing things around you when we see hopeless situation, supposedly hopeless situations around us. As malt meninas believers, we don't just say, Oh, well, I can't do anything about it. No, whoever can change it with his hand to do so. And if you can't change it with your hand, forbid he Sunny, then you should change it with your tongue, then at least speak out against it, or at least do something about it. You know, and if you can't change it with your tongue, then at least hate it in your heart. The

00:29:18--> 00:29:58

point is, is that this sentence of FETs up Allah must depart from fear Allah as much as you can, is not to be used as an excuse not to worship Allah subhanaw taala and as an excuse to disobey Allah subhanaw taala it's actually telling us that no matter what your situation is, you have a way to worship Allah subhanaw taala and a way to obey Allah subhanaw taala no matter what, you will never be able to find a way to completely escape obligations. And that attitudes Pamela translates into our worship, it translates into our worldly affairs. It translates into the way you see yourself as an individual, the way you see your society, the way you see your local politics the way you see

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

your world politics.

00:30:00--> 00:30:36

right with what's going on in Gaza right now, and in Syria and in Burma in the Central African Republic and all over the world in Kashmir, you can name the country right? There's some people that say you're not going to do anything anyway, these governments and these interests in this lobby and why are you even talking about it? Why are you even doing anything that tequila must apply to you right? If you can't change the oppressive ruler, Kenny mental Hopkins have been injured, at least speak a word of truth in his face, do something. That's what the idea is. The eye is telling you, you have to do something, no matter what your situation is. Even if you're paralyzed from nose down

00:30:36--> 00:31:18

and you're laying in a hospital bed. You know what, use your eyes to pray, and use your brain to remember Allah Subhana Allah, Allah fetac, Allah must apply to them. So fear Allah as much as you can. And it's amazing Subhan Allah that as we see, as we see that this refers to Alana, this refers to the commands, it doesn't refer to sins, where people commonly use it as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, either in order to convey in fact to men who must obey or to eat and I hate to come on Sheikh touched any book, this hadith is in the sahih, Hadith, the prophet sys, and I'm sad, when I commend you to do something, do have it as much as you can. But when I forbid you from

00:31:18--> 00:31:22

something fetched, enable, then abandon it altogether.

00:31:23--> 00:32:02

You cannot continue to live in your sinful lifestyle and claim that you're fearing Allah as much as you can. This by the this principle, this axiom does not apply to our sins does not apply to sinful habits and sinful lifestyles. And if the only thing you come out of Ramadan with is that you've abandoned your dibba, that you've abandoned your haram relationship, that you started to fulfill an obligation that you started to pray on time that you've started to wear hijab, that you've started to do the things that Allah commanded for you to do, and that you've started to avoid the things that Allah subhanaw taala forbade you from if that's the only thing you come out of Ramadan with,

00:32:02--> 00:32:41

you realize the goal of Taqwa because that's what Allah azza wa jal demands of us. You cannot claim to say I'll only take from the sin to what my knifes will allow me to do so while this while this ayah is still somewhat there, I still have somewhat of a consciousness and awareness of Allah subhanho wa Taala fetac Allah hostile towards him? Absolutely not. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to mica so people who abandon that which is displeasing to Him and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us the people who are honest and truthful and sincere with Allah subhanaw taala and put forth what Allah Subhana Allah has made us capable of putting forth and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to add it to

00:32:41--> 00:32:58

make us the people that realize their potential, both on an individual level and on a community level to do that which is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala and forbid that which is displeasing to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah Allah Amin Akula Califa was stuck with Allah you will not come with a certain Muslimeen First off, you know in the whole world for Rahim.

00:33:18--> 00:33:44

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen whatever Guan Illa Allah Ameen Well Ana people tuned in with something a lot more Saudi was telling me about a kind of Abdi kala so they come home and then sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was trying to sell him to him and cathedra everyone can move forward and sha Allah to Allah as much as you can. I know that we've already squeezed in a few times, but try your best this is it tough Allah who must apply to him. This move up as much as you can in sha Allah to Allah as much as you can, even if you make room for a few more brothers in sha Allah Tada than it's worth it.

00:33:46--> 00:34:00

The brothers and sisters in conclusion, as we go into the next layer as we go into this next phase of our lives, being there eat, I want you to remember something and this is something that's very, very crucial and very important for us to understand.

00:34:01--> 00:34:39

It's a lot easier as people of faith and people of religion to observe holidays and rituals than it is to observe commandments and obligations. It's far easier to come out and enjoy the mood in the atmosphere of Ramadan and everything that it brings with all its with all the socializing with all the thoughts and all the samosas and all that whatever it it's very easy to enjoy that. It's very easy to take part in the rituals and the holidays. It's very easy for us to come to Salah to the age where we get to dress nicely and enjoy coming with our families and meeting everyone else and and giving each other hugs and congratulating each other on that which we have just completed. That's

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

all easy to do. But what Allah subhanaw taala really wants you to realize from this rehab is what is to be realized from any form of rehab, which is to maintain function to move forward and do what Allah Subhana Allah has commanded you to do, and to gain that greater awareness of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:35:00--> 00:35:39

And you know not just be a person who needs the optimal environment to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala because at the end of the day as I'm beloved number three little the Allah to Allah and who said you should get accustomed to the idea that if everyone on the face of the earth disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala, you would still be obeying Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Allah, if everyone around you as a disbeliever if there was no message it if there was no place to worship Allah subhanaw taala if you were incapable of doing Ramadan because of your circumstances, Allah azza wa jal would still expect from you that you don't disobey Him. And so it's very easy for us to say salam to one another

00:35:39--> 00:36:12

in the masjid. It's very easy for us to be humble and to stand right and to, you know, for the sisters to slip on the hijab and the brothers to straighten up and get quiet when the Quran is being recited in the masjid. It's very easy for us to pray a few more guys when it's going on in the masjid anyway, and we know that after eight after 20, whatever it is that you pray after that there's going to be something and we're all gonna meet together and talk that's all very easy. But the most beloved actions to Allah subhanaw taala are the consistent ones, even if they're very small, and what the prophets like Selim said, and this is an analogy that we should take for every

00:36:12--> 00:36:49

phase of our lives, especially as we come out of the month of Salah and Quran as well as fasting. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says it Adolphe booty come insalata come one at a time we do have a water, the authentic hadith, leave some of your prayers, a share of your prayers for your homes, and don't turn them into graveyards. And so I want you to think about what the prophets lysozyme is saying to us here. Even as you pray in the masjid, even as you come and I hope the masjid will remain full because Juma has an obligation next week as well, by the way, and Russia and budget are obligations every single day. I hope that the message is always full. But make sure that

00:36:49--> 00:37:29

your home your private time has a share of your Salah, and of your data and of your thicket of your remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala don't turn it into a graveyard. Don't turn your home into a graveyard. And don't turn your heart into a graveyard by depriving it of Quran for the rest of the year. And don't make your life one in which you express only your joy and your love of Allah subhanaw taala when you're around people that are doing the same, but you live a life of disobedience to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and your brothers and sisters, always always find that hope and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, that if you are trying fetac Allah muster platinum if you are

00:37:29--> 00:38:07

trying, then Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will recognize that effort and Allah azza wa jal knows what you are capable of. And Allah subhanaw taala knows how sincere you were to your potential and that's all Allah subhanaw taala will ask you for and the prophets lie Selim he said in authentic hadith he said that let not one of you die don't leave this world except that you have personally been and Allah subhanho wa Taala except that you assume well of Allah subhanho wa Taala if you did what Allah azza wa jal commanded you to do assume well of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And if you're not doing what Allah subhanaw taala is commanding you to do then chastise yourself and then meet you

00:38:07--> 00:38:42

know, meet that expectation that Allah azza wa jal has set for us we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make us the people that worship him inside and outside of Ramadan, that worship him inside and outside of the massages that fear him whether we are in worship or whether we are with our families or whether we at work we are at work we ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to make us from an monoterpene to make us from NMRC need to accept from us our Ramadan to accept from us Laylatul Qadr to allow us to have observed or to observe Laila to other and to gain the full reward of Allah Amin Allah humma for me Nina will not one Muslim you know what a Muslim out here even when I'm watching
