Polycom Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh him as one brother remarks, you've seen my bedroom, you've seen my garden and now you're seeing my car as well. And that's because these reminders are taking a different places because end of the day, a message that I just want to say is that reminders are not fixed to one place, you don't have to be in a special place to have reminders, reminders can be any time. And that's the nature of remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala. And as you're reading the fifth reminder today, from the book, 30 steps, it's all about refund, configuring your hardware, and by that you would have read, it's about how happy you are the content and satisfaction that you feel as

an individual. No doubt there are people who know what makes them happy. And they'll say, you know, I could do the bigger house better car, this and that, which will make me happy from the material life. But consider this, if what makes you happy isn't material, then material is absent is not there, then you're not going to be happy anymore. If what makes you happy is the people around you. If those people no longer there, you're not going to be happy. And that's why it's important that the happiness has to be inside has to be in the highest to be in the mind of how you think you have to feel that way. And while it's easy just to say that it really is about a realization that

00:01:22--> 00:02:06

pleased with you. So you increase happiness. And that's why it's very important for us to seek search and look for those meanings in our daily lives. And especially in a normal vine. It's an opportunity for us to reconfigure our software hardware, our internal reconfigure what we're really about so that you shall law we find that happiness with being a Muslim happiness with putting our forehead on the mat as we prostrate to a loss of panatela will feel happiness when we are hungry. Can you imagine that we are happy when we are hungry because we know that that hunger is an act of a bad it's an act of coming closer to Allah subhanaw taala and even if we're tired at night because we

00:02:45--> 00:03:03

have to get up, we are also happy because we're doing that for Allah Subhana Allah so this number one, search for your happiness, reconfigure your insights that you're happy with the nos pantalla is not an easy process. It will take time and it's very important for us to make that conscious strive to gain that inshallah to Allah. Take care
