On the 24th night of Taraweeh Reflections during Ramadan, the Sheik delves into the thought-provoking verses 33-36 from Surah Fussilat/Ha Meem, emphasizing the importance of calling people towards Allah(swt) and living according to His (swt)commands.
The verses highlight the need to practice what one preaches and avoid hypocrisy. The verses explain how the believers should act with goodness and patience, even in the face of adversity. In this modern era, where the relevance of the Quran is often questioned, these verses remind us that every aspect of the holy text is important and applicable to our lives.
The speaker also delves into the meaning of patience and perseverance in the face of evil or harm, stressing that this does not mean allowing oneself to be mistreated. Instead, it involves continuing to follow Allah’s commands and responding to wrongdoing with goodness as defined by Allah.
This approach is not easy, but it is the path to greatness and success in the hereafter. The speaker encourages listeners to resist the whispers of Shaytan, who seeks to deter believers from their mission, and to always act according to the will of Allah, even when facing challenges or opposition.
