Alhamdulillah All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala, who raised the heavens and created the creation, he spread for the earth and beauty divided with vegetation. And he gave us the cycle of the night and day in perfect alternation. He sent down to us the Koran as his speech and Revelation. And he sent to us a prophet in whose belief is our salvation. So it is Allah and Allah alone we worship and to Him, we bow our heads in frustration as to what follows Allah subhana wa tada has reminded us to be conscious of him when he says in the Quran, yeah, you hola Xena, Manu, taco la porta potti What are Timo tuna in LA?
Unto Muslim on the Muslims in Surah Taha, verse 123, Allah subhana wa tada tells us that when our father Adam and our mother, were sent down to this earth, Allah left them with one message. This is the last message that Allah gave when they were up in the heavens. And Allah says, Allah has built Amen Hi Jamie and bow bow calmly, better than I do for him. tn Khomeini houden feminine tebah Huda feather yo de louella Yasha woman, our da and D for in the Homer II shirt banca when I should Oh yo malkia Matsuyama Allah said to them go down to this earth you and a police will be enemies together. You will never you should never be friends together. And then Allah says, any time a message comes
to you, for him yet to come mini Huda guidance will come, messengers will come book shall be revealed. Tell your children this, oh, Adam, are children of Adam. Any time a messenger comes with a guidance, then no one simple rule. This is the rule that Allah said to our father as and when he sent him down to this earth. Whoever follows my guidance shall never go astray, nor shall he ever face destruction. And whoever turns away from my guidance, shall live a miserable life and shall be resurrected on the Day of Judgment blind. This is the rule that Allah gave to the very first human beings as they came down to this earth. It is a rule that every prophet preached, it is a rule that
all Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded and it is a rule whose reality we taste in our own existence. Whoever follows Allah hedaya shall never go astray, nor shall they face destruction, and by destruction here, Shirakawa it is the ultimate destruction of the punishment of hell. Whoever follows Allah's guidance, whoever follows the Buddha, they shall not go by law. What does that mean? What was the other curveball and for hada? We found you not knowing anything, and we told you how to worship Allah, the real misguidance is to not know why we are here to not have a purpose in life to have empty lives. So Allah says, when you follow my hedaya You shall be rightly guided, you shall
know why you are here you will have a noble purpose of existence, and also you will be saved in the hereafter. But if we turn away from that hedaya what is going to happen? That person shall live a miserable life. Marie schatten banca and the word bunk actually means narrow, constrained, restricted. Whoever turns away from my guidance shall live a narrow life. What does that mean and narrow life? You see, even in English, we say I'm feeling something I have a pressure in my chest, something's wrong. Even in English, we say oh, I can breathe easy. The same expressions and metaphors are in Arabic, miserable life, narrow life, constricted life what it means you will never
taste the pleasure of this world, Marie shorten Blanca, and in the Hereafter, you will face what you will have to face. You might have the outer illusions of wealth and of blessings. But internally, your heart will be constricted, internally, your soul will feel not at peace and at ease for another Homer Isha Tom banca. And this is an amazing facet of existence that most Muslims do not fully comprehend. Many of us, we believe, if I choose the religion, and if I choose religiosity, I must sacrifice this world and I will gain the next world. And that is completely false. If we choose a law, we gain this world and the next world. And if we reject a law, we lose this world and the next
world. This is what this principle is teaching us. This is what the first rule that Allah gave our father Adam is teaching us, whoever follows the hedaya in this world, you will be rightly guided, and in the next world You shall be saved, and whoever turns away from my hedaya in this world, you shall never be happy, and in the next world, you shall be punished. This is the simple rule that To be honest, we don't even need the Quran to teach it to us because our existence and our experience teaches us this reality when
Do we have religion when we have a man when we have Taqwa life becomes not just bearable but worth living. We can undertake any mission, we can bear any pain, because we have a connection with Allah subhana wa Tada. the difficulties of this world become easy for us. But when we don't have religion, and we don't have a man, and we don't have Taqwa, then all of the pleasures of this world become meaningless and empty. We can have a full bank account. If we don't have a man, our heart is empty. We can have all this world has to offer. But if we don't have religion, there is an emptiness in the soul that is never going to be satisfied by this world. And that is what Allah is saying, whoever
follows my guidance, I will give you this world and the next. But whoever turns away from my guidance, neither shall you get this world nor shall you get the next this My dear brothers and sisters is the simple rule that our father Adam was given, follow the guidance of Allah and of course the primary guidance is the Koran. read the Koran, learn from the lessons of our prophets a lot while he was send them and you shall live good in this world and good in the next world. May Allah bless me and you within through the Quran, and may make us of those who is verses they understand and applies halal and haram throughout our lifespan ask Allah forgiveness us will ask him
