Bhima can we act Cebu de la la la Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, After telling us of

00:00:59--> 00:01:02

the followers of all the different prophets that Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:03--> 00:01:39

blessed with prophets being sent to them, and after telling us how they disobeyed their prophets, and after telling us how Allah subhanho wa Taala destroyed them, because of their disobedience, Allah subhanho wa Taala problem is that he will gll Allah helewka her, he says, If only the people of the cities of the villages of those places, and who believed what they believed, and they were God, conscious of Allah, meaning they were upon the laws shared to them by their messengers.

00:01:41--> 00:01:52

Allow him we would have opened up upon them Baraka blessings, Minnesota, he will out from the heavens and from the ground, rain would have fallen, crops would have grown.

00:01:53--> 00:02:02

They would have been protected from illnesses and harm. They would have been blessed with good health and children and, and wealth and financial standing and material well being.

00:02:03--> 00:02:40

If only they were pious and righteous and stayed away from sin, Allah says, Well, I can cut the bow but they chose to deny the messengers. They chose to turn away from the guidance of the messenger for I have now homeless we snatched them we took them we mechanic spoon because of the actions because of their actions, brothers and sisters in Islam. Yes, it is. Our deeds brothers and sisters in Islam. It is our deeds yesterday we spoke about entering to gender being based on the mercy of Allah, but the deeds are a means of attaining that mercy.

00:02:42--> 00:02:53

And today, we learn Subhana Allah, how sins are a means of gaining the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his punishment, both in this world and the next.

00:02:55--> 00:02:59

You know, we all see what's happening around us in the world today.

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

We all see what's happening around us, in our cities, and then in our communities, and then in our neighborhood, and then even in our own homes, brothers and sisters in Islam, parents writing,

00:03:16--> 00:03:23

seeking guidance with regards to the children, spouses seeking guidance with regards to each other. Right.

00:03:25--> 00:03:28

I'm not trying to paint a gloomy picture.

00:03:29--> 00:03:38

But many can testify to the fact that there's a lot in the world that falls under the category of depression.

00:03:39--> 00:03:48

Not that we should be depressed because Allah subhanho wa Taala he loves alpha and he loves people who have who have hope.

00:03:49--> 00:04:07

But that doesn't mean we shouldn't call the situation for what it is. There's many situations that fall under the category of depression. They are depressive situations, and they're not if they're not, you know, happiness is not going to come about because of them.

00:04:09--> 00:04:15

And brothers and sisters, it goes back to since it goes back to since it is sins that changes

00:04:17--> 00:04:54

things it is sins that converts riches to poverty, sins that converts happiness to depression, it sins that converts success, to failure. It sins that keeps the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala at a distance and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala in a gathering in a sitting 100 times La ilaha illa Allah right? We're not talking about the whole day we're talking about a sitting How many times do we turn to Allah and seek is the father sincerely I'm not talking about just think it's not gonna last for the last that's what allows you playing with your phone. While it's you looking here looking there watching the football match? No,

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

I'm talking about sincere, focused, is defined where you contemplating?

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

Since then your wrongs and you are showing sincere regret and seeking forgiveness from yourself.

00:05:06--> 00:05:37

When Eunice Allah He Salam digressed. A lock was their will to swallow him and in the way he sought forgiveness said La ilaha illa Anta subhanak in the country Nepali mean. He turned to Allah. And he sought forgiveness from Allah testify to how perfect Allah is and that there is one worthy of worship besides Him. Allah says if it wasn't for that wonderful act of worship that he did in the whale, he would have remained there to the day of Subhan Allah, La homeopathic until the day of prayer.

00:05:38--> 00:05:58

So brothers and sisters in Islam, Allah says, if the people of the cities and villages of these places are men who believed what taco and then acted upon the belief, they weren't just Muslim by name. It's not enough to be a Muslim by name, you need to walk the talk. Right? And you need to talk the talk as well. And then talk the walk.

00:05:59--> 00:06:39

You know, I hope I'm getting it right. This is the language of our our youth today, right? But you get the message brothers and sisters in Islam. It's not good enough to just say, My name is a fool and I this Muslim name, and that's it. And I believe in Allah that's it. No, it's action. And that is why in the Quran whenever Allah says, Allah No, he says why musala has Indian Latina Amano only had one Latina Am I know what I'm going to solve those who believe and do righteous deeds, it's about action. And in this ayah, Allah says, they will be punished because of the actions, they practice the wrong actions. And the opposite of this means that you will succeed and be successful

00:06:39--> 00:06:44

because of your actions, meaning your actions that will end the mercy of Allah and that mercy will be the means

00:06:45--> 00:06:46

by which you will enter

00:06:49--> 00:06:52

a short reflection, but insha Allah appointment one, and

00:06:54--> 00:07:38

I pray, it's a means for reflection. We said this is a month of action. Tonight, we need to sit down and contemplate our activities. Our sins, write them all down, see yourself on paper, write all your sins down. Right? You know, if you lie, if it's a slip of the tongue, you know, write it down. How you speak to your parents, how you speak to your spouse, right? You know, at work, you know, how are you selling yourself? Are you overselling yourself in a way that you deceiving others so that you can, you know, get the promotion? Are you throwing anyone under the bus for the sake of the dunya? I looking after the rights of the believers of Allah? What's your relationship with Allah? How are you

00:07:38--> 00:08:02

upon your own? How upon your Salah Are you success is also inside as Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the Quran, in many places, when he described the people of success they said they were the people who looked after this Allah Subhana Allah, how are you with your Salah? Really, how are you with your Salah? Do you pray when it suits you? Or do you pray when it's time to pray immediately when you know when meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala has arrived?

00:08:03--> 00:08:05

How are you with your soccer?

00:08:07--> 00:08:41

Has there ever been a time where you might have paid less soccer? Have you thought about this? Have you tried to learn the rules of soccer? Have you tried to seek knowledge pertaining to the matters that concern you in terms of your relationship with Allah to make sure you are upon righteousness? You're not in a situation where you think that you are upon righteousness but you're not brothers and sisters.
