My dear brothers and sisters we have all made vows to allah subhanahu wa ta’ala. allah subhanahu wa ta’ala tells us in Surah Araf out of verse 172 and to remember when Allah subhana WA Ta’ala extracted from the children of Adam their loins from their backs and made them testify.
Am I not your Lord?
and they said, indeed we have testified so that on the day of judgment, we will not be able to say that we were heedless of this affair, that allah subhanho wa taala is our creator and sustainer, and that was one of the first things that came to my mind the velvet of the vowed the covenant that we made with allah subhana wa ta’ala greater than any vow that a husband makes to a wife or a wife to a husband or a mother to a child or any other relationship. yet you see when it comes to allah subhana wa ta’ala Shaitaan has won this battle in distancing us from Allah subhana WA Ta’ala, so I want to dedicate to this talk to loving Allah subhana WA Ta’ala again.
I want to dedicate this talk to getting to know allah subhana wa ta’ala again in hopes that we can fulfill our vow to allah subhana wa ta’ala no matter what happens in our lives no matter how bad that amnesia gets no matter how bad the accident, we will always know who Allah is and why we love him.
let’s start off by how Allah subhana WA Ta’ala commands us of this in the Quran the famous verse that all of us know he reported many many times aware Allah
subhana WA Ta’ala says
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنْسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
wa ma khalaqtul jinna wal insa illa liya’budun
that I did not create the mankind in Jin except for my worship
the greatest mufasal’ of the quran abdullah bin Abbasid allahu ta’ala anhu MA he said about this verse that to
worship allah subhana wa ta’ala is to know allah subhana wa ta’ala meaning
that the greatest form of worship that we can do is to get to know who allah
subhanho wa taala is because once you truly know who allah subhana wa ta’ala
is you cannot help but to worship allah and to love allah and to venerate Allah subhana WA Ta’ala likewise, Allah subhana WA Ta’ala tells us in Suratul Hashr,
That allah subhanho wa taala tells us and do not become of those people who forgot Allah subhana WA Ta’ala so Allah subhana WA Ta’ala made them forget themselves indeed these people are the transgressors, now there’s two points in this verse.
