00:00:47--> 00:00:47

I said

00:01:05--> 00:01:06


00:01:20--> 00:01:21


00:01:37--> 00:01:38

are yours

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

are you

00:02:08--> 00:02:09

are you gonna

00:02:22--> 00:02:23


00:02:39--> 00:02:42


00:03:25--> 00:03:29

want to stop here whenever we have to be totally opposed to knowing and so you

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

may have to do that

00:03:34--> 00:03:39

we're making the put that out there what's going on the law wife last

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

question on what happened in the front door so

00:03:43--> 00:03:58

yeah maybe a couple of law hoppers talking what happens like in our home? Yeah, just a couple a couple that we caught up on the nursing one we have a hard time because of the you have a better thinking of

00:03:59--> 00:04:04

what type of loan is going to meet your account in the lock Academy? Akiva?

00:04:06--> 00:04:11

Yeah, you want to talk a lot about all problems in either your sector to

00:04:12--> 00:04:24

welcome back to normal. What are you putting down on a bad reason about how do we start a blog? Well, absolutely heavy 100 and some a lot of it

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

was shovel pulling oftentimes, what was the most

00:04:29--> 00:04:32

popular quarter water?

00:04:33--> 00:04:34

The days are really

00:04:36--> 00:04:39

our days of happiness, celebration.

00:04:40--> 00:04:45

We get gifts and each party and visit family.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

Eid is one of the laws of science. And so it should be honored. As one of those signs Allah azza wa jal says, well they lived in sha Allah He for him

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

Have you talked about

00:05:02--> 00:05:06

whoever honors the sign from Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:05:07--> 00:05:09

That is from the piety of the hearts.

00:05:11--> 00:05:15

Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us in this eye,

00:05:16--> 00:05:24

that honoring Allah's signs is an activity of piety and righteousness.

00:05:26--> 00:05:35

How each sign should be honored will depend on the nature of that sign.

00:05:36--> 00:05:40

The message itself is a sign of the love.

00:05:41--> 00:05:54

And so it shouldn't be honored with our time with our reverence, with our cleanliness with our orderliness, and with our solemn worship,

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

or even as a sign of Allah.

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

And so it should be honored to and should be honored and celebration. It should be honored with gifts and with gatherings and with happiness.

00:06:10--> 00:06:17

There is no contradiction between piety and the honoring creed with our celebrations.

00:06:19--> 00:06:38

That being said, it is also important to realize that's on a reading, we are not just celebrating a date on the calendar. But we are also celebrating a spiritual transformation

00:06:39--> 00:06:42

and the spiritual renewal

00:06:43--> 00:06:48

that was supposed to occur during this past month of Ramadan.

00:06:50--> 00:07:03

If we celebrate the dates on the calendar, without having, let's Ramadan transform us, our celebration will be somewhat hollow.

00:07:05--> 00:07:08

And we will be running at a loss.

00:07:09--> 00:07:20

Think of it who in their right mind would fast for 30 days just to celebrate for the next few days after that.

00:07:21--> 00:07:36

The exchanges are equal and even nonsensical unless we also achieve a spiritual awakening through the hardship that we endure during our Milan.

00:07:38--> 00:07:50

In Arabic, there are some lines of poetry to capture this idea laser easily but there is a need in the memory to remember Evidently, the wine.

00:07:52--> 00:08:00

Reading is not for those who have new clothes. It's only for those who are saved from the Phoenicians

00:08:01--> 00:08:12

were wherever he wants best clothes on he is the sunnah of our Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and the Sunnah of the companions and the Sunnah of the entire ummah.

00:08:13--> 00:08:41

Our best clothes are often our newest ones. And so it has become customary in many places across the Muslim world to buy a brand new outfits for a but the spirits of celebration and the sense of accomplishment that is part of the main campus simply be obtained by purchasing new clothes.

00:08:42--> 00:08:52

The new clothes are supposed to be a symbol, they are supposed to represent something that's much deeper as an internal transformation,

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

a renewed commitment

00:08:56--> 00:09:04

both to the sound of a news commitment to the message, a renewed commitment to the poor bed.

00:09:06--> 00:09:16

If, through fasting, we became more grateful, more pious, more aware of Allah,

00:09:17--> 00:09:26

more in harmony with the life that Allah subhanaw taala wants for us. That is something worth celebrating.

00:09:28--> 00:09:41

The month of Ramadan gave us countless opportunities to secure our salvation to have all of our sins whiteness clean. Does someone who fasted

00:09:42--> 00:09:52

but did not manage to secure their own salvation and Ramadan really have anything to celebrate? Now the Roman law is Oh,

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

the poem continues basically the evil demon Rockefeller fire is another evil demon characters alive

00:10:00--> 00:10:00


00:10:01--> 00:10:04

is not for the one with fancy vehicles.

00:10:06--> 00:10:09

It's for those who turn away from their mistakes.

00:10:10--> 00:10:20

Every blessing we are given exposes something about us that exposes whether we are grateful or not.

00:10:21--> 00:10:26

How was the setup? The answer is and how you respond to that blessing.

00:10:27--> 00:10:46

We were given the opportunity after opportunity and Ramadan, to repent, to turn our lives around, to turn the pain to begin a new chapter in our lives, to leave behind our old habits and reinvent ourselves.

00:10:47--> 00:10:52

To take advantage of that opportunity demonstrates gratitude

00:10:53--> 00:11:04

on the other day, to return to the same sinful behavior, after begging the loss of power, who was the islands of hardness and to forgive us?

00:11:06--> 00:11:08

That is the ultimate example of in reference.

00:11:11--> 00:11:16

It contradicts our words, exposes our insincerity.

00:11:18--> 00:11:29

And so what is there to celebrate? For such a person who not only is hopelessly stuck in their old habits? What has demonstrated in gratitude

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

to a last question,

00:11:33--> 00:11:36

the poem continuous plays for the evil demon

00:11:38--> 00:11:41

in the meaning of the topic, or the delay or role,

00:11:42--> 00:11:51

or it is not for those perfume with the finest sense. It's only for keen doesn't backslide after he repents.

00:11:52--> 00:11:58

What uses the center of the body when the center of our soul is putrid power?

00:11:59--> 00:12:09

Recall everything the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us about the art and about the soul and the effects of sin has on them.

00:12:10--> 00:12:24

Every time we disobey the law as the window our part skirts of black spots, until if we persist and don't repent, our entire heart becomes black and dead.

00:12:26--> 00:12:30

Hold on the line that best is that they

00:12:32--> 00:12:34

fit a wedge. What

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

was that? That is Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,

00:12:41--> 00:12:45

wait a second. So what are the three which

00:12:46--> 00:13:08

one would have been tempted to follow? While nothing better or not some for this one, both of them. People who were thought alone are best. The famous companions are obviously some says that every good deed and brightens the face. It illuminates the hearts. It expands your permission and your wealth it strengthens your body.

00:13:10--> 00:13:15

It even increases the love that the rest of the creation has for you.

00:13:16--> 00:13:36

On the other hand, every evil deed it dims the face. It envelops the heart with darkness. It weakens the power it diminishes your provision and your wealth and it sews hatred in the rest of creation for you.

00:13:38--> 00:14:15

The profit from the long running was also described the soul at the point of death recall that the dawn fearing soul smell fragrance and look beautiful whereas a rebellious sinful soul smell foul and look hideous. If we haven't heard our hearts or come along is there really anything to celebrate? If our hearts remain black is there any point to agreed upon upon the other was something that was only workable they certainly will significantly longer to enter the pool all right

00:14:24--> 00:14:25

hopefully that makes sense.

00:14:26--> 00:14:41

I think anyone's watching on that I think the law WiFO last week W membership was shut up and then the Vienna receded and then we'll have another who was so good with everything. When some of Ali Baba had that he was having he was when I was testing her to heal.

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

Ramadan is gone for Allah's forgiveness remains and the doors of repentance is always open, even if it's hard to earn forgiveness outside of the home above. Here are full

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

are steps to help. The first is to know Allah is.

00:15:07--> 00:15:16

Behind every single sin is a lack of understanding, or remembering who Allah subhanho wa Taala is.

00:15:17--> 00:15:22

If we carry constantly with us the awareness of Allah Allah and His perfection

00:15:23--> 00:15:27

that Alina COVID has severe and you'll see,

00:15:28--> 00:15:37

they will compel us to be righteous. They will compel us to be pious, our gratitude and all that we have for you.

00:15:39--> 00:15:43

The second is to know the effects of sin.

00:15:44--> 00:15:51

Even if your only reason for avoiding sin is that it's going to constrict your wealth.

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

That's better than nothing.

00:15:55--> 00:16:10

The third is to remember depth off, because it will put everything into perspective. And it will make you use your time wisely. attend the funerals and the burials. It's a community

00:16:11--> 00:16:18

that will help you to realize that it's just a matter of days to join those who have already passed away.

00:16:20--> 00:16:29

Finally, listen to the stories of those who have repented before us that helps to know that we're not alone.

00:16:31--> 00:16:46

There have been other centers like you and I before that have climbed out of much, much deeper holes and turned their lives around in amazing ways. If they can do it, so can we

00:16:48--> 00:16:55

just one example, man in the hour telling us his story of repentance.

00:16:56--> 00:17:06

He said that he was the most vile of sinners. He lives without barriers and without limits.

00:17:07--> 00:17:14

He drank alcohol. He oppressed the week. He delves in river.

00:17:15--> 00:17:20

He said there wasn't a sin, except that he was doing it.

00:17:21--> 00:17:25

So much so that he was notorious for us.

00:17:26--> 00:17:37

Eventually, Maliki wanted to have children. And so he decided to get married. He got married. And he had a baby girl, named probably.

00:17:39--> 00:17:43

Malik said that his daughter probably will soften his heart.

00:17:45--> 00:17:56

He loves her so much. He wants it to be good for her. So everything that went by he started to sin less and less and less.

00:17:58--> 00:18:05

Sometimes, Malik said that he wanted to save sometimes he would even reach out for the bottle of wine.

00:18:06--> 00:18:10

And his little dollar coffee mug would take them by the hand.

00:18:12--> 00:18:13

And he would feel shame.

00:18:14--> 00:18:16

And so he would turn it back.

00:18:17--> 00:18:27

This is when she was only a toddler. And Malik said that it was as if Allah had sent her specifically to straighten the mouse.

00:18:29--> 00:18:34

Then, without the maternal three years old, she died.

00:18:36--> 00:18:41

And Malik after her death, he crashed so far.

00:18:42--> 00:18:46

He became worse than he had ever been before.

00:18:47--> 00:18:54

He said that he didn't have the patience of the believers and the pious people.

00:18:56--> 00:19:08

So he fell into the worst period of his life he took back to sick took to drinking even worse than before. To the point where he'd been telling the devil was just playing.

00:19:10--> 00:19:14

One night, the demo convinced back

00:19:15--> 00:19:23

to drink more than he had ever done before. So he spent the night drinking and drinking until finally he blacked out.

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

When he was unconscious, he had a three

00:19:29--> 00:19:32

in history. It was the day of

00:19:34--> 00:19:52

the ocean that turned into fire. The mountains had floated away and the earth was shaking. Everything was chaos. Everyone was gathered and waited to be called. Until now the next thing was called but suddenly he was all alone.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

And in front of him was an enormous snake. with his mouth open, ready to

00:20:00--> 00:20:00

The Power

00:20:02--> 00:20:06

Man turned around and ran away from the state as fast as he could go.

00:20:07--> 00:20:10

And the state pursued him hot on his heels

00:20:11--> 00:20:15

just inches away from swallowing him up.

00:20:16--> 00:20:25

Man on the ground and ran until he reached a point where he saw that flames were rising up and he knew those were the flames of the Hellfire.

00:20:27--> 00:20:29

And he was soon running out of options.

00:20:31--> 00:20:34

He passed by a frail old man.

00:20:36--> 00:20:44

And now they scream sitting for help. But the beat oh man could only cry. That madness situation.

00:20:46--> 00:20:54

Off to his side, Ballard noticed that there was a mountain. And as soon as he saw that mountain, he knew that climbing that mountain was his last hope.

00:20:56--> 00:21:02

So he started moving to the mountain. And as he got closer and closer, he noticed there were children on the map.

00:21:03--> 00:21:05

Those children were praying to a boss. And

00:21:07--> 00:21:17

as he got even closer, he noticed his own daughter popping up on that mountain still, they're still three years old, praying for them.

00:21:19--> 00:21:26

He ran into him and she took her father by the hand with the right. And with the left hand, she propelled the snake.

00:21:28--> 00:21:33

And as I said that the collapse in her feet he was so exhausted and afraid.

00:21:34--> 00:21:36

He said that he laid there like a detriment.

00:21:39--> 00:21:44

Finally, he asked his three year old daughter how to make seven What was that steak?

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

She said that steak was your evil deeds.

00:21:50--> 00:21:56

You felt and felt it and it grew and grew until the almost the power of you

00:21:58--> 00:22:03

did you know that your deeds will be given form on the Day of Resurrection?

00:22:06--> 00:22:10

Not have been asked his daughter, who was that we found that I saw.

00:22:12--> 00:22:14

She said that was your righteousness.

00:22:16--> 00:22:22

You deprived him and deprived him until he was so weak he couldn't do anything for you.

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

But cry and look on.

00:22:27--> 00:22:36

And if it wasn't for the fact that I was your daughter, and I died at the age of three, you would not want to say

00:22:38--> 00:22:43

that she recited the I consoles of heavy and I didn't get the

00:22:45--> 00:22:45

flu for

00:22:47--> 00:22:48

what I have

00:22:52--> 00:22:54

no problem with the ball every

00:22:55--> 00:22:56

possible flu.

00:22:58--> 00:22:59

What can I do with

00:23:01--> 00:23:06

it? Isn't it time for the believers hearts that the humble that the remembrance of Allah

00:23:08--> 00:23:15

and what has been revealed of the truth and not to be like those before that who were given the Scripture.

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

Those people who are spoiled for so long, that their hearts became hard.

00:23:24--> 00:23:26

And many of them are still rebellious.

00:23:28--> 00:23:33

At that point, now that woke up, shouting, sweat.

00:23:35--> 00:23:45

He went and he made possible he walks through a messy, professional prayer, the first time he has been to the nesting and ate it.

00:23:47--> 00:23:52

And the man stood up and he recited this very verse in the prayer.

00:23:53--> 00:23:59

From that point on, he was determined in his heart to never go back to his old ways.

00:24:01--> 00:24:06

From that point on, he made a resolution to live righteously from that point on.

00:24:08--> 00:24:09

And he did

00:24:10--> 00:24:19

it's never too late to turn back to Allah subhanaw taala without even if you didn't take advantage of Ramadan.

00:24:20--> 00:24:23

The door of repentance is always open.

00:24:25--> 00:24:33

So my son was telling me that my mother can pay for power in Allah He people who use aluminum.
