Al Hamdulillah galantamine para la sala Mubarak anabaena Mohammed Ali, he was Abu Salah Muslim cathedra sama MOBA. So from the very first few that we heard in this presentation tonight, go to La Jolla de Vaca wa tada and so Toronto and the Dena amanu boo boo medica, Allah, Allah, Allah He hit of men on kulu those who believe alladhina amanu and they find comfort and rest in the remembrance of Allah indeed, in the remembrance of Allah, the hearts will find rest and peace.
So this is all about finding comfort with the divine subhanho wa Taala because indeed there was you can find your conference. You know what comes to our life when it comes to our creation as human beings Allah subhana wa The designers designed us in a way that we will always find that missing piece regardless how much we try to fulfill our carnal desires in this world, will always find that missing piece. Why? Because we're not just flesh.
We're not just body, we're body and what is your man and soul? Allah subhanho wa Taala created this body from Earth from dirt. And that speaks about the details of this creation. When the first thing alasa spoke about soprano Madonna was an nominal man kulesza in high we've made every living creature made of what water? Water is the source of life, right? And then Allah subhana wa tada spoke about the creation of Adam, originally he was made of what to rub dirt. When you mix that dirt with water, what does it become?
What do you think,
before clergyman becomes mud, right? becomes mud. And then when the moisture leaves slowly and graduate, that's what are called clean in the Quran.
the superior moral becomes worth for her play. And then when that clay becomes very dry, becomes sounding clay Sol Sol, as was calling a call on all of this just to give us the creation of this body.
emphasizing that the source of this creation is the earth. Therefore, you have to nurture your body with earthly ingredients. You eat you drink, you exercise, you sometimes abstain from mood from food, to give your body the chance to rejuvenate and so on.
But that's not enough. Because we're not just body, body and soul. The soul comes from heavens, inherit Abdullah Soto, they love to run waterfall on the Prophet Sal, as I mentioned that the the baby and the child as develops in the wombs of the mother 40 days and 40 days and then 40 days and he said to Mansfield Malik, Allah Subhana, WA de sends the angel and that Angel will be will would carry the soul from seven Heaven, bring it with him. And that's all will come and unless I will give the order to breed that soul into the body. And then he will ride the four things about this child, what they're going to be in the future and so on. But the point here is that this soul comes from
heaven. And if it's coming from heaven, how would you nurture that heavenly element of your being? It has to be something also heavenly.
It has to be something heavenly. And it doesn't matter how much chocolate you eat. You're not going to feel as excited as much because again, the soul is missing something. It doesn't matter how much you listen to music, because sometimes you just listen to music, classic music is gonna make you feel okay. It might make you feel okay. But then there is still something empty in there. It doesn't matter how much you try. The soul has to be nurtured by heavenly thing. And one of the heavy lifting that we have in this world right now amongst us. The Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Al Quran and regada worshiping Allah azza wa jal, and on top of all of this is called what? Vicar? That's the
equivalent remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala No wonder Allah azza wa jal says Allah Dena Amano, aku medical Allah, Allah, Allah aku indeed those who believe and they find comfort in the members of Allah, indeed and remembering Allah subhana wa Tada, these hearts will find comfort and peace and tranquility. simple message.
Tonight I want you to give to make this commitment. If you're struggling psychologically, spiritually, if you have, you know, depression, if you're going through a rough time, if you're so worried if he's so anxious about the future, about your income, about your marriage, about your children, or whatever that is that concerns you. If you have all of that in your mind, and we all have these things, it slows you down to Panama. As you try to progress in life, you keep you feeling this is just the heavy burden. Doesn't matter how much you try, you feel that your heart is so tight and constrained and you
And even breathe sometimes. Why is that? Because you're not given that soul that fuel that it deserves. You're not giving that soul the energy by which it can survive. Allah subhanho wa Taala named for Andrew Hanneman emelina rule called the Quran rule which means soul or spirit, the Roma they say why the Quran was called rule because the Quran just like the rule, the rule which means the soul to the body is important for its life. The Quran was made the spirit and the soul of the soul.
So if you would like to nurture your body, exercise, eat and drink and enjoy that.
And also now if you want to enjoy having the holistic experience of being a full human being, then you're going to have to also nurture the soul. The way you nurture your soul is by remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala keep remind yourself you need to do that. You need to remind remember you remember last apana with a day and night Allah spoke about the quality of believers with that feeling of luck if you know what that cannot those who frequently Remember last Virgil men and women which means day and night. Allah Subhana mission the Quran the Quran Allah, they always remember Allah subhanho wa Taala in the morning and in the in the evening as well. They mentioned lots of Hana what Allah BM
and Rocco route and what Allah Janabi him, they always remember Allah subhanho wa Taala whether they were standing where they're sitting down on their side, it doesn't matter whichever position they are live, that's what it means. They're always remembering Allah subhana wa. How do I do that? remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala is different levels, different levels, obviously the highest and the top level of remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala is the full consciousness the full constant continuous conscience of Allah subhanho wa Taala Can you imagine if you have this full awareness of Allah subhanho wa Taala how your life is gonna look like?
How would you live your life? You always be cautious about what Allah Subhana what is Allah subhana wa Tada. You know what, that's why some of them are they say Alhamdulillah that we forget sometimes.
Because that kind of that sense of forgetfulness. What makes us human beings we are we make mistakes. But then those mistakes are also made for us to do what to remember. Because when we make something wrong, you remember how I shouldn't have done that. And that would provoke that. tober that repentance that would brings people to Allah subhana wa Adana, when they come back to Lhasa, they're in concert remembering of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Obviously, the highest level of remembering Allah as we said, the full conscious that's the angels those the melodica we can't be like that, which is why the Prophet salla salam, when he was informed by overcrossing decontrol when
the Hadith the famous Hollywood he said Yasser Allah nasaka handle I feel hypocrite today, we come to you, we hear from you, we'd like we see the agenda with our own eyes. And then when you just go home, we just go back as if we're just nothing. And the Prophet oromia hamdulillah. Listen, if you would be the same on the same state of consciousness and awareness at home the way you are with me, the answers will shake hands with you, you will see the end and the streets because you're an angel. That means you're not they don't need to hide from you. So I want you to understand forgetfulness is part of our job description as human beings.
That's who we are as human beings. But we also need to define that and also try to define ourselves by being at that key alacati number dichotic. Always remember Allah subhanho wa Taala now that happens by choice,
being in full consciousness, and being always in remembrance of Allah remembers of Allah subhana wa Taala that happens by choice. make the right choice because all of our life is about making choices. The other way of making the good is what the professor recommend to some people when a man comes to the Prophet says Impala. Rasulullah inaturalist Islamabad kasali Rasul Allah, you know, the rights of Islam, the practice of Islam are so many I don't know what where to start. Well, I'm overwhelmed. I don't know what to do. For the loony Allah. She just told me something should I should do? You can
bring me closer to Jenna and keeps you away from Jehovah. The prophet SAW Sam told him and we always expect something to be so big and great. He said call Lazarus anacapa Medical Allah as long as you keep your tongue moist and remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Like if you keep doing that, you're good.
So I want you to do this phenomenon. You keep remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala Of course bitung and then obviously, comes the actions. Everything that you do in this life, if you do it, you keep that in your mind that Allah subhanho wa Taala will be pleased with or not, would that please Allah azza wa jal or not so your actions will be active all the time. May Allah Subhana Allah make us among those that you know like it and
molesta powder make among those who would have that peace and tranquility in their hearts, your LLM in America among those who listen to the spirit.
