00:00:16--> 00:00:42

our days of Ramadan passing by me Allah subhanho wa Taala except our deeds, I mean, brothers and sisters in Islam I take you to sudo to the anchor booth for today's lesson, and in particular is number 69. The last part the very last part of Sora, Turan Kabuto Allah subhanho wa Taala says insert rancor booth right at the end or levena jaha doofy Nanana de

00:00:44--> 00:01:00

su bolena Allah subhanho wa tada says, and those who strive for us, those who persevere intending the pleasure of Allah for no other than Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:01--> 00:01:09

Allah says we will surely guide them to our way to that which pleases Allah to the right path.

00:01:10--> 00:01:14

And then Allah says and Indeed Allah is with the doers of good

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:01:18--> 00:01:26

If you ponder over the translation of just shared use, you would notice a connection to past lessons this month.

00:01:27--> 00:01:36

In our series related to Ramadan reminders, the series is related to principles from the principles of life, and success taught to us in the Quran.

00:01:38--> 00:01:44

Many come to mind, I'd rather you revise our previous episodes, so that we don't

00:01:45--> 00:01:50

flood this particular episode with summaries of past episodes.

00:01:51--> 00:02:13

But if you go back to those previous episodes, you will see some handler mini a lesson that has an association with the reality of today's lesson. Those who strive for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says we will surely guide them to our way. Now it's interesting that Allah subhanho wa tada

00:02:15--> 00:02:32

he ends surah to Anka booth with this ayah because at the beginning of surah, to Angkor Wat Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us a massive reality. Allah subhana wa tada says, has he been a Roku, a Roku?

00:02:34--> 00:02:58

Or whom less than Allah says, Is it enough? Does man think? right there's this creation think it's enough for them to just say they believe and allow will not test them. You won't be tested. You won't see the trials. You won't see the tribulations. You won't see the disasters of life, the difficulties of life, or why they're fat and

00:03:00--> 00:03:07

poverty him Allah says Indeed, we tested people before them before us people were tested.

00:03:08--> 00:03:09

For La

00:03:12--> 00:03:13

La, la de

00:03:15--> 00:03:42

la lemon. The bien, Allah subhanho wa Taala says we tested people before and made manifest which one from them truly walked the talk said they believed and truly believed. And we also made manifest those who are hypocrites, they just said they believed, but they never really believed. when push came to shove, the character of belief didn't shine.

00:03:43--> 00:04:29

So Hannah law, so this is a massive reality. And Jen, you know, it genuinely brings tremor to the heart, it genuinely causes the hairs to go white. That's a Pamela. This is the nature of the world that we live in. And, you know, surprising is the affair of the person who enters a trial and the surprise that they are in a trial. No brothers and sisters in Islam. We don't ask Allah for trials will save us from trials. But the default status of the life of this world is that it is filled with tracks. You should only be surprised when you're not going through a trial. And the reality is we always in a trial during the good times and the difficult times. Unfortunately, we only sense trials

00:04:29--> 00:05:00

in the good times. You know, the hardest trials are during the good times. Sorry, we only send trials at the difficult moments. The hardest trials are during the good moments, brothers and sisters as well because Allah, you know, gives us goodness, and it's a test. Right to make manifest which one of us will be thankful and still put a love first sometimes Subhan Allah Allah Allah blesses us with blessings and gifts, and we become arrogant as a result of it. We stop putting Allah first. We start making lists. We start observing

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

Estrella are the quality of our sellers not their mela savers. This is a reminder to myself first brothers and sisters in Islam that how would our quality level? How are we as insane long Stan, Allah who we are weak.

00:05:14--> 00:05:27

So it's also a dryer. And then there's the difficult parts of life that we normally then stand up and say we are going through a trial. And Allah puts us in that circumstance to make benefits which one of us will strive

00:05:28--> 00:05:54

for the pleasure of Allah meaning they'll be patient through it and we spoke about, you know, in earlier episodes, the importance of taqwa and sober the concept of patience, right? So we need patience to get through the trials. And we also need patience, in ensuring that we don't become victims of ourselves during the times of ease and the pious before us used to say rather calamity that brings us closer to Allah than a blessing that takes us away. Because blessings can take people away and that's the drive.

00:05:55--> 00:06:36

But as believers We ask Allah not to, not to give us blessings that take us away from him and not to give us difficulties that bring us closer to him. Rather we ask Allah to grant us a life have always been close to Allah subhanho wa Taala. During the good times, and the difficult times, if that makes sense. If that makes sense, brothers and sisters, the point is, the default status of life is that there will be trials. And if you're going to enter this world, you better wear your seatbelt, because the journey has turbulent, massive turbulence, and we are on a tie of some journey to Allah subhanho wa Taala in necrocomiccon, Arabic Allah, Allah likens our journey to him to the farmer who

00:06:36--> 00:06:45

tunes his land under the hot sun, with his pic, moving from one end of the land to the other so you can plant the seeds and then he has to be patient hoping the rainfall will come

00:06:46--> 00:06:46

in.

00:06:47--> 00:07:22

So when Allah highlights this reality at the beginning of pseudo reboot, and that fear is there in the heart tremors and the hairs are going right to Panama you get to the end, and then you see the promise of Allah, a principle of life that the one who strives for the sake of Allah strives to put a love first. That alone will never let him be left alone will never let her be left whoever puts Allah first during the times of ease and puts Allah first during the times of difficulty when things are easy. Alhamdulillah eyes is moist and easy on their tongue. And when things are difficult Subhana Allah is moist and easy on their tongue.

00:07:23--> 00:07:48

Right? In LA we're in la hora de Rouen rolls off their tongue, they always put Allah first. Allah says the lady in the home Subala we will never ever put them last we will guide them to the right path we will Allah is the promise of Allah. Allah is saying you do your bit, and rest assured Allah will do his woman ashtakam in La Jolla Tila, who is more truthful to Allah. In speech, no one

00:07:49--> 00:08:31

loves promised brothers and sisters in Islam. So we have no other option and we have nothing to lose. We have to fight for our salvation. We have to fight to claim our here after in this life, brothers and sisters in Islam. By always doing everything in our capacity to put Allah first live our life with sincerity, and solely for him and his pleasure and doing everything in our capacity to live our life upon the sooner as he wants us to parenthood to Allah. Because if you are going to live for the sake of Allah, then live Allah how he wants you to live for Him not how you want. This is another flaw that we have. And it goes against the concept of this idea. And thus we're not

00:08:31--> 00:08:38

following the principle of life. Allah wants you to live for his sake. And if you're living for your sake, then live how he wants you to live.

00:08:39--> 00:08:46

Don't live how you want don't say I'm going to define my relationship with a lie. It doesn't work like that we are the slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:08:48--> 00:09:31

why brothers and sisters in Islam I feel exhausted from this lesson Subhan Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us always, grant us the understanding. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala inspires us to be upon that which pleases me Allah subhanho wa Taala hold our faith for us throughout our lives and keep it strong and keep it protected from shavon. From the weaknesses of the human self, from our egos from the evil aspects of our hearts and, and and the impurities of our soul. I mean yeah, but I mean, we Allah subhanho wa Taala enters into gender without any accountability or money We are weak. But at hamdulillah we know that our up our Lord is a fool Rahim, the most forgiving the Most

00:09:31--> 00:09:34

Merciful. Until next time, Salaam Alaikum warahmatu overcut
