“A lot of us, we haven’t even made that niyyat ke Allah ko raazi karna hai. Ham samajhte hain ke Chalo…Allah raazi ho jayen tou ho jayen. Na hon tou na sahi. Koi aise Bolay ga nahin, magar zindagi aise hi guzaar rahay hain: Bass jitna deen main thora bohat apni Dunya ke sath chala sakta hun chalaa lun ga. Per jo mere Apne Mizaaj, Apni dunya, Apni tarteeb mein koi deen ki aisi cheez hai jo nahin fit hoti hai, tou na sahi…
Strange, that we’ve made the Dunya the asal, and whatever deen can fit Along with that that’s okay. No no no… Deen is the Asal, whatever dunya you can fit along with your Deen, go for it. But if there’s something in dunya that doesn’t fit in your deen; if there’s something in dunya that prevents you from deen; if there’s something in dunya that makes you betray Allah; if there’s something in dunya that makes you forget Allah; if there’s something in dunya that even makes you one inch, One Inch distant from Allah; How could you do it! How could you choose that over Allah swt? Hmm? You had to choose ALLAH. It’s your choice, it’s your Choice. You don’t want to take the wrong choice in front of Allah on the Day of Judgement. You don’t want to do that.
ALLAH swt is who is going to help. It doesn’t mean ham mein se kisi ke andar itni himmat hai ke ham istiqamat ker sakte hain. Nahin. Istiqamat ki dil mein Chahat rakhna, aur iss dil ki chahat rakhte huwe Allah ta’ala se Mangna. Bass ap ka ek kaam hai, istiqamat ko chahna aur Allah se mangna, that’s it… Ye deen milta hai Chahnay se aur Mangnay se.”
