So today's decision is, this is not who I am. Today's decision, I will change according to what Allah wanted me to change, I will worship Allah subhanaw taala on his terms, not on my terms, desires while I was talking to someone just last night, so panel I love him about telling me that I don't know what to do because I have this driving desire to do a sin and I don't want to go into the details of that particular sin. And I gave that person an example I say supposedly,

00:04:18--> 00:05:00

now I'm married that hamdulillah I have children supposedly I had a desire for another lady who is not my wife. Will I follow that desire just because it is driving me crazy. It is occupying my thoughts or will I battle that desire will I fight back that desire and that person say definitely you must find that desire and so with any addiction with any sin, if you surrender and say this is who I am, then you will die in that state.
