smolov manual him hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was so happy all Manuela brothers and sisters in Islam 10 days and nights of Ramadan have come to an end. I record this as we begin the 11th night of Ramadan along with Stan The days are going by so fast me Allah subhanho wa Taala except

00:00:22--> 00:00:54

our first 10 days and our first 10 nights and we have lots of Anahata ALLAH forgive any mistakes there in. And we also have hanworth Allah only caused us to move from strength to strength. As I said, in yesterday's broadcast, please don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah He is the possessor of all messy irrespective of how these first 10 have done. Make sure you don't say what's the point of me acting now I've missed the first 10 or I did this in the first 10 or I should have done that in the first 10. Whatever is done is done. actions are judged by the endings. Let's push on brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:00:56--> 00:00:58

Tesla, we saw the end of

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

Sora to an app and the beginning of throttle are off. And, as always, you know so many lessons with Hannah law. The hardest part of this program that we do every day is choosing what to share. And I promise you it's hard because sometimes I pick an eye and I know that Pamela has so many other ideas I want to speak on however, obviously that night has gone and that Sora has ended. But for tonight I luckily have

00:01:33--> 00:01:50

a loss of Hannah who Alice's will in the celerity will usuki Amaya Rama Murthy. Illa Allah me this ayah brothers and sisters in Islam touches on an earlier lesson I shared with you earlier in terms of how to make your entire life agenda building exercise by making it for the sake of Allah.

00:01:51--> 00:02:34

And that's obviously the extended understanding of the idea. But the base understanding of the is one of the heat, right, the reality upon which everything exists that there is no one worthy of worship besides one of Allah subhanho wa Taala in this ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala says call in say indeed salatu salam, ala Suki and my sacrifice for my high and my living Rama Murthy and my dying Lila. From Bella alameen. belongs to Allah, the Lord of the worlds belongs to Allah Subhana Allah This is teaching us where we need to take our lives brothers and sisters in Islam. We need to take our lives to a level whereby our entire life is an endowment is a workfit belongs to Allah. No one

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

has any

00:02:36--> 00:03:17

shares in our life. No one has any shares in our life everything we do is governed by that which pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala and done for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his pleasure subhanho wa Taala This is the reality brothers and sisters in Islam and this reality happens truly when you build your Eman to the appropriate levels and your love for Allah subhanho wa Taala to the appropriate levels. In pseudo tabacalera Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about you know those people who worship the idols in worship, they are the gods and you know how they love the gods but Allah says when Latina, a shadow Bella, those who believe they are even more intense and severe in

00:03:17--> 00:03:44

the love of Allah Subhana Allah, right, that these people they worship Gods they call them Gods they're not really gods and they love them. They do things for them. Brothers and sisters in Islam today, how many times? Have you heard the conversation? Or maybe had the conversation yourself where you said that's upon Allah? Look at these Christians, how they leave the luxuries of the Western they go settle in mosquito infested waters in Africa to spread Christianity? What would make them do that? What would make them leave? They

00:03:45--> 00:04:24

they water systems and sanitation systems, and food systems and financial standing and material well being to go to a place where sanity is very poor, the quality of water is very poor. Disease is rampant. What would make them do this brothers and sisters in Islam? Right? The Christians? Yes, they say we're doing it for the love of God. Right. So brothers and sisters, I mean, we can take this further in terms of paganism and the Hindus today and what they do for the gods and the sacrifices they make and they do it with all of themselves and with absolute happiness with absolute

00:04:25--> 00:05:00

desire. This is what they do. They do it for falsehood, because they love that falls through them to them they call it God. What do we do for Allah subhanho wa Taala brothers and sisters in Islam What are we sacrificing for Allah subhanho wa Taala and it's not really a sacrifice whatever you do for Allah is really an investment because Allah multiplies what you give him and gives you back and we discussed yesterday how we will always be in debt to Allah. So what are you sacrificing for Allah? slash investing for Allah subhanho wa Taala right. Are you only going to send your child to study Islam when he's failing at school? Are you going to send the child who's

00:05:00--> 00:05:31

Passing while at school, give a lot the best. Are you going to? Are you going to invest your high performing childhood for the sake of Allah? Or is it going to be sent the child who's failing because head is failing, nothing else you can do as for the ones who are passing, that send them out in the dunya I'm not saying that. I'm absolutely not saying that it's wrong for us to invest in our kids becoming doctors, etc, etc, we should, because the old man needs representation in all fields, but you get my point brothers and sisters in Islam, when you open your wallet and you're going to give charity did you do you give the least amount in your wallet? Or do you give the most you can

00:05:31--> 00:05:53

give truly because there's a lot of excess in your wallet anyway, and I'm talking obviously, about those who Allah has given financial standing and material well being and they have access, right. So $5 is above your requirement $15 is above your requirement $50 is above your requirement $100 is above your requirement. But instead of 100 up five, or maybe 15 or maybe 20 well levena among

00:05:55--> 00:05:59

those who make the Alliance for the sake of Allah in a celebrity or do sukima Yeah, I

00:06:01--> 00:06:09

mean, they make their lives or work such that no one has partnership or share in their life, their life is 100% owned by Allah, in terms of,

00:06:10--> 00:06:15

you know, its governance on Earth. Yes, those who who do this, they will be assured

00:06:16--> 00:06:50

they will give for the sake of Allah and sacrifice for the sake of Allah we know what how Ibraheem alehissalaam was tested to put his young child in the middle of nowhere, barren, a barren land when he was a baby. And then when this child grew up, smiling, it is Allah what Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded him to do in a dream to put a knife on his neck because Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded It was a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Obviously, nothing happened because Allah replaced is married with ihram. Until the day of piano, we practice the student of Ibrahim and slaughtering on the day of April.

00:06:51--> 00:07:28

But you get my point brothers and sisters in Islam, let's use the cinema one to ponder over this message. And this reality from the Torah we this evening. Let us ask ourselves, how much truly are we doing for the sake of line giving up for the sake of Allah? Do we give up our holiday so that we can spend, we can take time off work for the last 10 nights of Ramadan and do a decaf? Or is it I can't do a decaf because there's no you know, work and I want to save my my time or for holidays. Or you know that money you might have saved for that vacation that you want to go to. And then you see someone from the oma calling showing you a great need for your money for the sake of Allah and you

00:07:28--> 00:07:33

choose to keep your money in your pocket. Why? Because as for my holiday, you choose your holiday over

00:07:35--> 00:08:10

an activity that you know, you will find Allah subhanho wa Taala there at that activity and there's so many examples. I just want to, you know, jog our contemplations. And obviously, I'm not accusing anyone, please don't take this in an offensive way. It is a reminder for those who do not fall under the remit of of this message. It's a reminder and for those who do fall under the remit of this message, it's a lesson and hamdulillah I say it and I promise you because I love you all for the sake of Allah. intend no maliciousness brothers and sisters in Islam. Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our past and inspire our futures I mean until next time, Salaam Alaikum alaikum warahmatullahi

00:08:10--> 00:08:11
