So now money comm Welcome back to Allah loves. So this is a Hadeeth that you're going to be hearing, especially as we get to the end of Ramadan. And you're encouraged now to make sure that you continue the deeds that you learned in Ramadan. And the reality is that all of us always experienced a drop off after Ramadan right? this hadith is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked a lot of money I have which of the actions are most beloved to Allah and he said sallallahu wasallam Duomo ha were in the consistent ones, even if they are small, the most beloved of deeds to Allah are the consistent good deeds, even if they are small. And as I showed the law and a sudden Allah Mohammed

00:00:53--> 00:01:29

and Salalah and he was some that the family of Mohammed saw I saw them either I mean Ramadan, but to when they did a good deed, they maintain that good deed. And so a person might feel well how am I going to continue today we have to Ramadan will totally physically emelin. But there's no way that you're going to be able to pray the same amount of pm after Ramadan, there's no way you're going to be able to fast every day after Ramadan, right? There's no way you're gonna be able to maintain the same level of charity or victory or remembrance, but maintaining consistency is a sign of your love for Allah and as a sign that you are loved by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now how does it speak to the

00:01:29--> 00:02:05

love of Allah in particular, the scholars mentioned it in this way, they say that if a person is able to maintain the consistency of a good deed, that's actually a testimony to its being sincere for a long time. Why because if you waver with your good deeds, then that's probably a sign that there are external circumstances that drive the performance of those good deeds, or the lack of performance of those good deeds, which means that those good deeds rests upon something other than the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala, or at least are highly motivated by things external to the love of Allah subhanaw taala. But if a person is able to be consistent with a good deed, even if it's

00:02:05--> 00:02:44

small, that's a sign that they are also consistent with their love of Allah subhanho wa Taala that they're maintaining the steady Presence of Allah is love and of concern for a lot of love in their lives, no matter what's happening in their lives, no matter what their emotional state is, no matter what's taking place. And so especially as we come to the last 10 nights where we're supposed to push ourselves to the greatest level of worship, and then suddenly you hit this wall of aid, where you stop doing everything altogether. Think about the things from now that you're going to be able to continue outside of Ramadan, and let them be small, reasonable goals. Don't be guilted into thinking

00:02:44--> 00:03:21

that if I do something small after I'm alone, that's a sign that I lost my job, Ah, no, take small things in sha Allah, that you can continue so that you can continue the mention of those things and so that when the seasons come again, of those good deeds being increased and amplified, that you're able to kick it into the next gear, without it being a foreign concept, like you break down throughout the year, but then telawi comes and you've amplified that pm and you've taken it to the next level. So again, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, do the deeds that you are able to continue with, take things that do not exhaust you, a lot does not tire of your worship until you

00:03:21--> 00:03:42

tire of worshiping Allah, the Most Beloved of deeds to Allah subhana wa tada are the small ones, even if they are consistent. May Allah allow us to take some of these good deeds that were performing in this month and maintain them after this month as well throughout the year. And until we meet him Subhana Allah to Allah Allah I mean, Zack malachite on was Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
