When it comes to making changes, and I'm referring to positive changes in your life, you will always have a choice to make. And that includes bad habits that you've been indulging in for the past many, many years, including pornography, gaming, Facebook, social media, whatever, whatever addiction, whatever bad habit that you are doing right now, you have a choice to make to get rid of it to break free from that cycle, you have a choice to make all the scientific methods, the spiritual methods are there for you to just apply to just execute, you have chosen to surrender to the situation that you are in at that present moment. So blame no one. But yourself. My brothers and sisters in Islam,

I remember I have a friend of mine, a very dear friend of mine who moved from one country to another country, and that another country was a non Muslim country. And before moving, he told the supervisor that I do not want to engage in any meetings in any, you know, dinners outside the office hours where alcohol will be served. So he told him, You know what, this is a non Muslim country, and alcohol is just regular and normal and served everywhere in every restaurant. He said, Well, that's my condition. That's my choice. If I want to get that promotion and move from where I am now to another country, that would be my choice. I want to maintain that purity of my faith. And that would

00:01:32--> 00:02:13

be not having anything to do with alcohol. They refused that proposal. And the brother remained in that country for a year or so. And then they needed him again to move to that same country to that same non Muslim country. He again put forth the same conditions he said, I will move provided that I will have nothing to do with alcohol. Guess what my brothers and sisters in Islam, he's performed his proposal that time was approved, and he will he and he moved to that country and he excelled in that country.
