What I shall do Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola Shetty color wash how to under Mohamed and other do horror pseudo about Allah azza wa jal reminds us in the Quran when he says yeah, you will lead Hina Armano top Allahu Akbar Takata wala tomahto Nila one two Muslim moon are you who believe be conscious of Allah and do not die except in the state of Islam. Dear Muslims, today is the day of Eid the day of the sacrifice the day of evil out ha our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the
day of our offer and the day of read, these two days are the most blessed days of the entire year. And they come at the end of the 10 day holiest timeframe of the whole year. During these 10 days, we should have increased our worship, our vicar, our prayer, our of charity, those that would have gone for Hajj, they would have come back totally different people. All Muslims should have raised the bar in these 10 days. Now that these days are over, I remind myself and all of you that what Allah loves is not a quick burst of energy and religiosity know what Allah loves is consistency in his worship. What Allah loves is we continually do deeds, even if they are small and that is why the Quran
praises those that regularly pray. Allah you know Allah Salah to him done imune the Quran praises those that continuously give charity well Ladino homeless Zuccotti far in on the Quran praises those that are always doing Dicker with that good in Allah hookah theodon Without Carroz This is what the Quran praises the continuity of the worship, and not just a day or a month of extra zeal and extra worship. The real Taqwa that comes real Iman manifests itself in continually worshiping Allah and not just worshiping Allah during short bursts and timeframes. No relationship will last if you only show enthusiasm for portions of the year. If you only worked in your company one day or one month,
if in your marriage, you only showed compassion one day
A would anything like that flourish, And to Allah belongs the more perfect example. And that is why do Muslims as we come to the end of these 10 days, what I advise myself and all of you is that we choose one or two or three good deeds that are small, that are doable that we can put into our schedule, and that we maintain those good deeds. During these 10 days we all should have increased our thicker check bill to spear dammit. Now that these days are over, let us emphasize times to do thicker. Let us sit after our five daily Salawat instead of rushing away, sit there for a few minutes and do the car there are Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded us to do continuously
every single day.
These 10 days we fasted on the ninth, let us take that habit once a month twice a month, three days of the month is perfect three days of the month if possible. Let us fast those that can do more than this twice a week, Monday and Thursday. Begin to add to your schedule you routine, just like the one who goes to the gym working out. Once they get to a certain level. They don't just stop that would be useless. That would be counterproductive. Once you reach a level something needs to be done to maintain it. During these 10 days we gave some charity some old, okay, we cannot give every single day. But every few months, every few weeks, find the charity, find an orphanage find some old hair
that will feed the hungry and poor and put it into your schedule. Once a month. I will do this once every five months I'm going to do something bigger once a year I will spend this put it into your daily and weekly and monthly routine. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, once he started a habit, he would never give it up. Once he started something as an act of worship, he would maintain that act of worship because he did not want to be of those the Quran says don't be like the one who spun a beautiful carpet. And then after the carpet was finished she Anwar COVID with her own hands. The Quran mentions this as a metaphor. Don't do good deeds, then destroy them with your own hands by
doing other things contrary to that, and remember what our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and with this hadith or conclude the first holdover, remember what he said, hobble the eel Allah He, Eduardo Ha, we're in call. The most beloved of all deeds to Allah, the Most Beloved, is that which is consistent, even if it is small, for you to do thicker, every single day for even five minutes is more blessing than to concentrate in the previous 10 days maximum amount of liquor for you to give charity every few days, every few weeks is more beloved to Allah than for you to spend a one off qurbani and that's it. Try to be consistent and add things every season, every Ramadan, every little
alcohol, keep on adding and raising the bar. So that insha Allah huzzah Allah spiritually, your iman goes higher and higher and higher, so that the best year of your life will be the last year of your life so that your level of Jannah will be dictated not by these 10 days of extra and then it goes down. No, it will be dictated by your consistently high level that you have achieved by continuing to raise the bar bit by bit, the most beloved of all deeds to Allah is that which is consistent, even if it is small. May Allah bless me and you within through the Quran. And May He make us of those who is versus they understand and to implement as halal and haram throughout their lifespan. I
ask Allah's forgiveness he was will ask for he is the law for the Rahman.
Alhamdulillah Halawa Halal hadn't had a summit helenium yet William Beulah, welcome your co Loco and ahead. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. ilaha IL Allah Allahu Akbar. Well, Allah Hill Hemd dear Muslims, many of us are struggling in this timeframe. Almost all of us have lost family and friends. Almost all of us are hurting financially. Almost all of us have problems that we didn't have before this COVID crisis. All of us without exception, we are missing the friendship of our family and friends of meeting and visiting so many blessings that we took for granted are no longer here. And some of us are in jail.
You in difficult circumstances, to those, I remind all of you have one simple verse in the Quran for in the use run in number three Yusra with every difficulty, Allah will reveal multiple ease. Ease will come along with the difficulty. As Allah says one difficulty down for a number one Rasul. Allah says you sir, and then Allah says another user, Ibn Abbas commented, he said, two easy things, two users will always win over one looser, one difficult thing because the verse mentions one difficult thing, then Allah says, I'm gonna send something good, then I'm gonna send another thing good. And two doesn't mean two, it means multiple for one difficulty, Allah will send multiple goods, multiple
blessings. And this is so true, dear Muslims for every difficulty. Look at what positives you have. During this crisis. Many of us we rekindle the relationship with our families and children during our crises and this crisis many of us we drew closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. During this crisis, many of us we discovered this beauty the sweetness of worshipping Allah azza wa jal, there's always going to be blessings and our religion teaches us to look at the bright side to look at the cup as being half full and inshallah soon it will be completely full. We are commanded to be optimistic, and we're commanded to always have the best of thoughts. So dear Muslims, don't feel down don't feel
dejected. Don't feel any type of of discomfort and know that whatever difficulty you have, Allah is giving you right here and now is as well even if you don't recognize it, Allah azza wa jal is sending down things to make the difficult easy, so make Allah so make dua to Allah as the prophet system would do that oh Allah make the difficult easy Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah Masha Allah Who Salah and one day that she has an assailant. This is a prophetic dua Oh Allah, nothing is easy, unless you make it easy and oh Allah you have the power to make the difficult easy, so make the difficult easy. Memorize this dua and say it daily We ask Allah azza wa jal for his ease
