00:00:54--> 00:00:56

God Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:00:58--> 00:00:59

And I started my talk

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

by quoting a verse from the Quran from Surah Zarya.

00:01:06--> 00:01:13

Chapter number 51. Was the mu 56. Well, last month Allah says, Mama Calico Gina valenza, Li Li Abdul.

00:01:16--> 00:01:23

I have not created the jinn and the men, but to worship me.

00:01:24--> 00:01:28

I have created the jinn and the men only to worship me.

00:01:30--> 00:01:32

The Arabic word used years Ababa

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

coming from the root word up there,

00:01:36--> 00:01:46

which means servant, which means slave. Ababa means servitude means worship, it means obedient submission.

00:01:50--> 00:01:58

In short, abaza means worship or obeying the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala of our great Almighty God.

00:02:00--> 00:02:13

Whatever Allah subhana wa Taala Almighty God commands us, if we obey, it is called as a bother it is called as worship. For example, Allah smart Allah says that you have to follow the five pillars.

00:02:15--> 00:02:21

So if you believe in tawheed believe there's no God but Allah, then you're doing a bada then you're worshiping Allah.

00:02:22--> 00:02:22

If

00:02:24--> 00:02:40

you pray, if you're for Salah, you're doing a Baba, you're worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. If you give Zakat, obligate to charity, you're doing ibadah you're worshiping Allah subhanaw taala if you fast, you're doing your mother, you're worshiping Allah subhanaw taala

00:02:42--> 00:02:43

Allah says in the Quran

00:02:45--> 00:02:45

that

00:02:47--> 00:02:58

you have to provide neighborly needs, so if you take care of your neighbor, as Quran says is remount chap number 107 was number seven, then you're doing a bada you're worshiping Allah subhanaw taala.

00:03:00--> 00:03:09

If you abstain from the things, Almighty God Allah subhana wa Taala has told you to abstain from the northern Nevada.

00:03:11--> 00:03:19

If you abstain from having alcohol, you're in Nevada. If you abstain from having bulc you're in Nevada, you're worshipping Allah subhanaw taala.

00:03:21--> 00:03:24

If you abstain from stealing, cheating,

00:03:25--> 00:04:16

telling lies, yada yada, you're worshipping Allah subhanaw taala In short, when you follow the commandments of Allah subhanaw taala if you submit a welder last mano tala, you're in a bada you're worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. And every act of a human being can be converted into worship. If you follow two criteria, number one is the act should be done only and only for the pleasure of our Creator. Allah subhana wa Taala why number two, the act should be done according to the Sunnah, the way, the last and final messenger, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him as done. If you have these two things in your act, every act of yours can be converted into a bada can be converted into worship.
