Santa Monica Moroccans library card. So everyone welcome back to the virtues of the hedger and Eve Mubarak to you all and your families. I want to reflect on something very beautiful that Allah says in the Quran and how it really ties into this law school before the law what we recommend it for be very carefully have Rahu O'Hara, Hiram, NIH, Maryland that say in the bounty of Allah and His mercy, let them rejoice in that and that is greater than all that they gather of this world when they rejoice in the bounty and the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. We have two or two holidays in Islam to feasts in Islam. One comes after the best 10 nights, the other eight comes after the best 10 days.
One or eight comes after a month of fasting, the trauma bond, and we celebrate that and again, particularly the last 10 nights there eight immediately follows that. And another eight follows the best 10 days with the best good deeds that we could possibly present to Allah subhanho wa Taala one or eight comes after Laila to the other, which is the best of the last 10 nights this one night that is worth an entire lifetime. And one eighth comes after alpha, which is the best day of the year, and a day in which we can be redeemed entirely in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is the meaning of gold, we follow the law he will be rahmati fabrisonic Ophelia for our hope that we
take joy and we we find joy and we rejoice and allows forgiveness and his bounty and his grace and His mercy, and that is greater than anything else that we could possibly attain. And this really speaks to the fact that these two herbs come with acts of worship really speaks to something special about the spirit of salvation in Islam. We are not commemorating someone else's good deed. We're not commemorating someone else's acceptance. We're commemorating Allah's mercy and allowing us to perform a good deed and then hoping for his acceptance in that because of that same mercy and because of the same grace from him. subhanho its Allah. So it is you that takes the action, you do
what you're supposed to do for these 30 days in Ramadan or 29 days in Ramadan. And these 10 days of the hedger and then you celebrate that Allah allowed you to do that. And you celebrate Allah's mercy, and you depend upon a good answer from a loss of hundreds out of the prophets licenses under a law unto molfino. Anybody Java call upon a lot confident in the response. When you do these good deeds, you are confident Allah is acceptance, not because of your supreme performance of them, but because of Allah supreme mercy and accepting them. We also find that a lot tells us or the prophets license taught us to recite in their eighth Salah, sort of the last year sort of Arla and sort of
till Arla and then sort of last year Well, last year or two hyaluron whatever bar was earlier to hide on lucker mina Lula, both of them say that the Hereafter is better than everything in this world and everything that it contains. And the read the celebration of this world is to celebrate what is greater than everything in this world, which is a loss of mercy and His bounty and his forgiveness. And just like the profit slice, I'm sad for the fasting person to saw me fall hazzan for the fasting person is to Joyce, when they break their fast and when they meet Allah with that fast for the sacrificing good Dewar is to Joyce, when they eat the fruits of that sacrifice in this
world and when they meet Allah subhanaw taala with that sacrifice, so May Allah subhanaw taala accept your good deeds, accept your sacrifice, accept all that you've done a remembrance of fasting of charity in these 10 days, all that you've done to draw close to him a loss of hundreds I redeem all of us, may Allah accept our alpha and May Allah Subhana hutan allow us to be amongst those that are sanctified on the Day of Judgment elevated on the day of judgment to the highest level of generative for those with the prophets, whose examples we follow and drawing close to Him. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to be in the same level of Paradise and as close to him Lama Ameen de
zachman ohioan for joining us on this journey. I hope that you've rediscovered that hedger and the blessings and the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala contained within the Santa Monica Mountains like a little gutter.
