Don't wait until it's too late. Always, as a believer react quickly to any instability in your life. That's one of the surest ways to nurture your Eman. Don't wait too late after an argument to apologize to speak to the other person. Don't wait until it's too late to make up a missed prayer that you might have missed. Don't wait until it's too late to make a phone call to a family relative who has misunderstood something that has occurred. Don't wait until it's too late for you to begin saving and getting yourself ready for Hajj. Don't wait until it's too late. Before you are able to ask a loss of Hannah went to Allah for the things you need with the sincerity of heart and with the
repentance in your voice and in your demeanor. One of the things that will continue to help you with your Eman is to be proactive, to hurry up towards your return to Allah. And that's why Allah uses words like West Sadie or West sabya, who Allah says and race or and hurry to the forgiveness of your Lord and gardens of delight in the head that are wider and greater than the heavens and the earth. Notice Allah Subhana Allah to Allah tells us to be proactive, to launch ourselves toward doing good deeds, to be a person who seeks to build other people, to bring them toward the truth, to lead them towards it and to call them to that which will give them and you happiness in this life, because it
is about you, me and our relationship with Allah, that we want to nurture our Eman. We don't want for misunderstandings to be left overnight, that it causes me and my wife or you and your parents, you and your children to not feel comfortable with each other, that you have to slip into that dreaded silent treatment where you're not talking to each other where it takes you days or weeks for some people to recover from a simple indiscretion that had you hurried up in your discussion of it in your apology, have it in your acceptance of the apology of it, that things would have been much better. Don't wait until it's too late. Don't say oh, I'll pray tomorrow. Because tomorrow is not
guaranteed for any of us as a part of my duty as an Imam. It's one of the saddest things to see in our community, people who are young and vibrant, whose life comes to an end in a way that nobody assumed it would be in this time or in this age. It is a pain somehow not long, in my heart to know of young students that I had, who never got to graduate from high school never made it out of university, but the return was to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Don't wait until it's too late to ask a law for forgiveness, to end that haraam relationship to build a new beginning to turn over a new page to return something that doesn't belong to you. Don't wait until it's too late to give your
mom or your dad or your grandmother or parents a hug for they their time with you is never assured. Don't wait until it's too late for you to have an opportunity to be a functional worshipper of Allah subhanho wa Taala with health and prosperity. Don't wait until it's too late for you to begin memorizing the Koran and say to yourself, I'm too busy now in life, I have too many obligations. Find the time now there's always opportunity now and you can do a lot more than you think you can and you can manage a lot more than you think you are. And I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah removes procrastination from your heart. Don't wait to study for your exams. Don't wait to memorize
from the horror and don't wait to get regular with your prayers. Don't wait to make new friends and to push away from others. Don't wait until it is too late for you to make the changes that you know you need to make
