The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us that these are the days of being grateful and thankful to Allah subhanho to Allah, Allah our visitable us Muslims and there are days of eating and drinking as reported by the manager media Rahim Allah.
One of the best thing that you can do today, the prophets of Salaam told us as a tirmidhi reported, he said there is nothing dear to Allah during the days of sacrifice, then the sacrificing of animals which is Allah subhanaw taala specify for us which is an omen here. It is a highly recommended signal that in the case of Salam never missed it in his life, not a single year of his life. While his residents are traveling solo on a Sunday, he encouraged us to care for it by his actions by leading by his actions and statements along with it while he was he has offered cameras cows sheeps on behalf of himself and his family and his own masala Lord is seldom fulfilling what Allah said in

Allahu Akbar Kabira. Allah
Subhana Allah He bukata wa sallam, my day Muslim brothers and sisters, Allah have order us with the greatest Oldbury ever commanded human beings, which is to worship Allah alone and not to associate other with him. That's the essence of our religion that care for tau hidden the fear of shirk is something that should not we should not ever lose sight up, that we should raise ourselves and our children, our family, to only submit themselves to the Lord, and not to submit to their desires or to any other than Allah subhana wa Tada. We should learn that the essence of our faith and our belief is to worship Him alone, and not to associate anyone with him. subhana wa Tada. My dear
brothers and sisters, only hypocrites Do not fear share record hypocrisy. As for the true believers, the fear
Should have the fear that they will not hold on to that essence of a man all their life. That's why they are so committed. They are into prayer for Allah subhanho data to almost protect them, as Ibrahim alayhis salam used to say, What do not need to have any and nabooda snam protect me and my children from falling into the worship of the idols or idols.
This is an essential issue and sometimes we cannot overlook it. We think that faith and a mentor he is for granted, but it's not everything you should you want to keep it you have to work, to earn it, then to work to keep it and to make it flourish and increase. Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna said to us, yeah, you harness all mankind are good Allah worship your Lord, the one who created you, and created those who have before you.
And that's the first order comes in the Quran, in Surah tillbaka. My brothers and sisters, one of the greatest obligations upon us as Muslims, and upon those who believe in Allah, that we honor Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has rules, and we call them a sacred, we honor them, we respect them, we just don't break his rules. And without being careless about it, or with no regard to it. accumulating sins after since leads to the to that, that run, which is something that seal your heart, and it turns it to dead, as Mohammed was, I said, them go after them. You need to Allah Subhana Allah said in the Quran, no, rather, this stain has covered their hearts have that which
they were earning. It is the result of the sins and the obligations that keep missings kettlebell run. Ruby McCann was known
the country, Maya swallows them goofy ionic. Yeah, boom, we're in the law. Country. My other movie ionic, yes, we're in the law. And for mine said it perfectly correct. The way you treat the sense Allah will treat you treat your sins. If you send something so big, and you worry and you're afraid, Allah will see it as something as small. But if you see the something small and you don't care for it, Allah will see it as something major and big.
People sometimes say, Chef, you know what, I do a lot of bad things and nothing happened ever to me. I have a perfect life on healthy and wealthy. I have children everything going good in my life. My brother, one man once a man once told that hasn't been through similar thing that it has almost he said, Don't ever think that the results of your sin necessarily means that you lose and you became poor or not healthy or anything of these materialistic things? No, because this dunya worth nothing in Allah's eyes. He give it to those who he loves. And those who he doesn't care for those who believe in him and those who don't. Then he told him do you pray in the night? Do you fast do you do
this act of worship? He said No, not really. He said that's enough for you as a Prevention's and being illusion, that you're losing this opportunity to do all these good deeds. Sometimes people tell me Oh, I hear in social media, people saying, You know what, I used to put a job I used to pry. I used to be Muslim even. I know I'm not I'm not doing anything of these things. And you know what, I feel fine. I'm enjoying my life. It feels good to be free. You know, and all this kind of feelings and they they express that and I think they are correct about what the expressing I don't think they making it up. But I know why. Because Allah told us in the Quran, why people feel that way. When
they do sense. They actually feel that you know, hyped up and you know, feeling good sometimes about Allah said in the Quran and many verses in the Quran fmln Xena Russo or Imani.
You will know my
fella, enough Sugata him has ordered in Milan he
is now listen to what Allah Allah said, then, is one to whom the evil of his bead has been made attract.
To shoe he consider it good. He considers something good and attractive. In many verses Allah told us that the Satan have promised Gods something that he will mislead his creation and he will make them feel satisfied happy with the sin that they do.
BB ma Hawaii that was a nana nana whom Phil made I will made it attractive to them that which they will doing. The Satan made the misdeeds appealing to them was the year Allahumma chez Paloma, can you hear me alone? What can I can see you know Lima sloughi in American Yama noon, and this how the list deeds of the transgressor have been made appealing to them. This concept appears a lot in the Quran. And I promise you that Joel, that feeling that high and kickin feeling that you get after the same, it's a temporary, and usually people find it in the first and the second, maybe week two, maybe a year. And after that, ask how the life turn around. My brothers and sisters this last night
yesterday was the diff out of file what Allah said, Today I have perfected for you your religion and completed my favor upon you and your Mac move to the convener. My dear brother and sister that means there is no space for someone to add something to the religion, which is not from it. In our religion, one of the major sins is innovation and religion is to invent something in the religion, which was not in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as an act of worship, even if people see it as something good, it is indeed not good, as if Nero Marathi Allah and said that's why my brothers and sisters, we live in a time when there are so many changes. So many things introduce
the religion which is not part of so many culture have enter
line with the with that with their religion, and may change to the pure message of a snap, and that require from us to protect ourselves by learning the deen. I can't emphasize enough today that to make that commitment is shallow to add 10 more to the masjid to the classes, to learn to Islamic school for your children, to attend conferences, and to listen to beneficial knowledge. Let's make sure that you ask about the source of the knowledge that you take. So you take it from an authentic source. My brothers and sisters, any righteous knowledge reads leads to like just deeds.
Can you imagine if you want to imagine the importance of righteous deeds, think about it this way. We live in a very difficult time with so many challenges ahead of us so many tractions so many things, calling us right and left. And the way to deal with this to meet these challenges to be strong. So I want you to imagine this, a person going to fight his enemy, a person going to a big journey ahead of us with a lot of obstacles. And in his way, he felt like his armor is too heavy. So he took it off and a sword is too heavy, then you throw it away. Then he even find out that the food and the blankets that he carrying in his backpack. I made him heavy. So he took the backpack and put
it away and putting the water like as the time he arrived to face his enemy all these challenges, he will be already exhausted and nothing to defend themselves. And nothing to feed himself or to strengthen himself to face these challenges or to face his enemy.
This is the same applies to someone who finds doing the digger is too heavy. The Salah is too heavy, the sooner prayer is too much. That car is too many. And we find the same, it's too hard. And the Seneca It is not easy. So we keep dropping all these things until he meets his enemy or immediate challenges with nothing basically, he already defeated before he arrived to meet his enemy he already weak before he start the challenges. So that's why it is important for you and for all of us to make sure that we increase our good deeds as much as we can. Until we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala while he's pleased with us, Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, WA Annandale ham. eponymous American
Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, Allah and him
among the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he and Aiden used to address specific message to the sisters. And they have a message for the sisters and for the brothers. But I start with the sisters, I say in my talk in the few minutes long.

This been said, I also want to sign my sisters, don't ever forget, don't ever feel that this is less important, or something that old school or not befitting in our days, that you realize that mother is the first teacher for her children, your children needs to see you need to hear from you need to learn from you.
