Salam Alaikum everyone I pray your Torah we went well, and May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept it and bless our fasts and even better, I mean, brothers and sisters, just a reflection from the first era we and the first juice and sort of Baccarat. In particular last mannahatta. Allah tells us about people who change things just for the sake of change. There's no need to change, but they are addicted to changing things. It's like a trend. They have a trend for changing things. They change things for the sake of change, and believe that that is actually changed.

00:00:45--> 00:01:12

Does that sound familiar? Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about Israel, Allah commanded them to enter Palestine was bowing and when they entered they were supposed to say HIPAA, which was a form of seeking forgiveness. But being who they were loving change for the sake of change, they changed the laws instruction, they entered in a different manner. And instead of saying HIPAA, they said him, they just added one letter to the wet

00:01:13--> 00:01:22

and this change was not praised by Allah subhanho wa Taala. In fact, Allah says, For but the levy novella Oliveira lady

00:01:23--> 00:01:30

Holly hemorrhages, Amina Sana, Allah says that Allah sent down from the skies dishonor.

00:01:31--> 00:01:31

You see,

00:01:32--> 00:01:36

not every change, brothers and sisters in Islam brings about

00:01:37--> 00:02:19

goodness brings about hair brings about benefit, not every change brings about this. The only change that is praiseworthy is change that brings you closer to Allah and the laws of Allah is change that takes you away from that which Allah dislikes is change that takes you further away from shame upon. That is true change when you change something for the sake of achieving that which pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala that is changed based upon Allah. People, they change their mobile phones, they change their clothes, why? You have a perfectly nice jacket, but you have this addiction to change. So now the New Year's

00:02:21--> 00:03:04

the new, you know, design came out so we have to change, there's no need for change, but you change the new mobile phone came up, there's no need for change, but we change, you know, we have this love for change. We try to change everything. In fact, we somebody comes up with a really good idea. But so then we'll waste time trying to come up with an even better idea not because the previous idea has issues with it just for the sake of change. This is not praiseworthy. In fact, so Pamela when we look in the Quran, we see Allah subhanho wa Taala, praising our people because they didn't change anything. Subhana Allah, Allah says mineral minari journal, sada Puma Ahad la la familia humann

00:03:04--> 00:03:20

cavanna woman Humayun tavira wa deleeuw taba de la notice what but deleeuw tab de la. In the first idea about Israel, Allah says for bed de la la, Vina wanna see the same word is used, but in the first ayah

00:03:21--> 00:03:23

Allah didn't praise what happened. But in this ayah

00:03:24--> 00:03:33

Allah subhanho wa Taala is praising those who didn't change anything. Allah says from the believing from the believers or those who

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

who are truthful to the promises they made to

00:03:39--> 00:04:15

a minimum of an ABA. They are those who fulfilled the promise of implementable they are those who are waiting to fulfill the promise. But dilutive delay did not change anything. Brothers and sisters in Islam, the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is our way. It's our best example. Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says la Candela configural su de la he was sweating Hashanah, in the example of your messenger is in his way is the perfect and best example. Why are we trying to change it? Why are we always chasing change that makes us different to the sooner

00:04:17--> 00:04:46

the only change we should be doing is changing our norms, changing our following of our cultures to following the sooner then that change will be praised with the change and not change for the sake of change. But change for the sake of transformation and progress. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding. I leave you with these short words I love you all for the sake of Allah. Please remember me in your door and speak to you all again soon. Salaam Alaikum alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
