to tell you a story starting off.
That was told to me by one of our,
one of our teachers.
It was in the middle of the night.
Brother got out of bed.
He was married a daughter.
When he got out of bed, he went to the living room
in the middle of the night,
he put in a tape
and turn on the TV.
Right when you put it on, he sat down to watch.
And his daughter got up and she came out of her bedroom came out of the room. She opened the door.
And she saw her father watching pornography.
At five years old, she said, shame on you, Father, shame on you.
Immediately the father went and turned off the TV and the data returned back to the
turn off the TV and started thinking about what he had done, what he was doing, and what his daughter had just said to him,
and the words Shame on you, Father, shame on you. repeated over and over and over again in his mind.
When flight two came,
he took a shower and he went to
And the same words kept on repeating over and over again. And tears were coming down his eyes.
He couldn't hold back
his tears and after player while you sitting down, remembering a lot of tears continued to roll down his eyes. And he couldn't hold back neither. He was crying so much that to the people who came to the masjid with him. They were asking him
to see if he needed any help if there was something gravely wrong, if something wrong if they needed it.
Because he kept on crying. He didn't respond. He just shook his head.
And everybody just loved.
That day he went to work.
His eyes in the red, he didn't get enough sleep at nighttime.
So his coworkers asked him
What's wrong? What's wrong.
And one of his co workers, one of his best friends awesome. He said
I went to
Panama in almost 40 years. And this was the first time that I made some
since almost four years and four years.
So he kept the tears again, came down his eyes. And then the whole day the word shaman
was repeated over and over and over over his head.
he wasn't feeling very well. He was very tired.
He turned off his phone.
And when he got home,
his wife came up to him.
And she said,
You know what happened?
And he was scared. He was afraid maybe his daughter said something about what she has, she has seen last night.
And so he said know what.
And she said our daughter just passed away.
I was trying to contact them she just passed away.
last night and it continued to roll down his cheeks. So they prepared for the Jeunesse.
to the grave,
in a smile came to his face.
It was the first smile at Qantas face and a longtime
friend asked me, Why did you smile?
I buried my daughter, but she left the light that still remains in my heart.
But I still have.
that light was the light of
light returning to us. And
of course, later on the brother was continuously coming to the machine and so forth. And it's like
you've always played the always on time always took care of his obligations to us. From that time, on from that time on
the word Shame on you, Father that changed his life, his daughter, reminded
this month of Ramadan is the month to change the month of October. That's what
the word means to return back to Allah
returned to allow me to change your lifestyle afterwards. to that which is better. When you say it's the cloud, it's asking a lot with your time
is changing your whole lifestyle, changing your ways of living, to the way that it looks paranoid is pleased with. And so this is the month in which Allah Subhana Allah
is giving us the opportunity to repair
opportunity after opportunity after opportunity. And we can change we can change for the better. And when we do change,
we have to make this condition in our heart that will go from now
when the conditions is that when you make Toba, there's specific Toba from specific sense that you have committed. And then there's a general tone of where you repent from all the sins that you have committed. And you make a conviction in your heart, the promise to have lots of time on that from now on, you will do all that you can to do all that which pleases Him. And you will change your lifestyle, whatever Allah tells you to do, whatever is in the sun, you will follow and do it as much as you can. This is the change in lifestyle that we have that Allah Subhana Allah has given to us make making easy for us in this month.
We give you another story of one of the big scholars of Islam. His name is aprobado.
as well it was a hybrid, Robert, highly Robert, in those times very dangerous, leads to steal caravans I used to go buy these to take them, you know the merchandise and whatever they had. And if he had to do it, if people fought back, then they would kill him was like a normal thing to
lay them out in his youth.
He used to be highly around
us so feared and ruthless that
people were afraid of him. from Mecca to Medina, people had heard about him
to the point where people were talking about him and saying, when they want their children to go to sleep. They would say if you don't close your eyes and go to sleep, I will get for later.
It was like saying you better go to sleep. What are the boogeyman?
Like in our time, that's how that's how ruthless people how much people fear Him.
And so, one day I
fell in love with a girl
with a woman who had lived in this house.
And he wanted to
he you know, he wanted to see you
want to see him. And you know, everyone knows how ruthless
he jumped on the roof. He was trying to jump in from the rooftop into the house. While he was doing that her father was praying.
He stopped to listen because he was about to jump into the house and then this man is
isn't a time for the believers to have their hearts tremble.
that's when that's from Trumbo from that which has been revealed of the truth. Is it a time isn't it time to
Soften your heart,
as the label may have heard that he was about to jump into the house. And actually, what he did, what he usually does is he gets in this Rob's house or whatever he wants, he gets what he wants.
That's the way he was.
And so he, he heard this I and he reminded of it.
And tears started coming down his eyes,
stairs, tears coming down his eyes. And so he up from the house, he went to go into the house,
he went to a small, small play small high in a small area, but it's still in the middle of the night.
And you see that there's a group of travelers, there's a group of travelers.
And so he's
lays down close to where they are. And he has been
one of the travelers.
And I think we should go right now, we should just continue on our way.
way that may always be this
way to the daytime, it's much safer, much safer.
You know, that's, that's
when he heard that he said,
There must be a reason why I'm making innocent people because two people feel
so again, his heart started to tremble.
And he remember Dahlia begins over and over again in his in his head.
Isn't it time for people to people's hearts to tremble and the remembrance of a lot, a lot
people are like trembling and fearful later.
And so he says to himself, he said, he says,
He said it is time it is time
until you become a worship
in the master machine.
And so, he repented to a bar and studied with all the scholars that he could, that he studied, may change this waste. So much so that he had the he received the nickname.
He received the nickname arbutin how to make worshiper Mecca.
In other words, he was known as the most pious, the most knowledgeable of the of the two most holiest places in Islam, Mecca Medina, who was known for his piety and righteousness. So he totally changed his way to change from
a highway robbery, murder, everything that you can think of.
But he came, became a great scholar. And so
from this story, you see that as late
as he was, he changed for the better.
He didn't just make this too far. He totally changed his life, he became the best, the other one from the worse, to the best.
opposite directions. And so
of course, all the sins and convicted and so forth and things like that.
It's still like less than the ship. In the last
lesson, I will forgive you, even if even if the ship.
And when you look at computer storage.
we've never I'm pretty sure
none of us have done a fraction of that.
But you see when you decide if you have
to change became the best.
Work that in so we can also and this is the month of change. This is the month in which we rejuvenate ourselves. Because we are all travelers. Everyone will die. All of us.
We're living in this world. As travelers, everything is temporary. And so when we move over, and we're
in a trip every time if you're in a if you're on a trip
you have a long long journey to go. You're in your car.
Could you would you be able to go from
here from Nashville all to way to Los Angeles to Seattle without stopping.
Definitely you will. You are too dry. You will need a pit stop to fill up
to continue on your trip otherwise he is going to get stuck on the way and you also as your trip.
You need a map,
you need to know the direction.
You need to have guidance, to show which which place to go, which roads to take and so forth. You haven't been
given haven't taken them before. you need you need them. And thus, we're on the trip
and a loss of data because he is so merciful. He has made pitstops for us on the way to refuel ourselves, the Messenger of Allah, Allah
the five daily prayers as well jumar to the Juma
he's a student with
the five daily prayers, and from Friday to the next Friday, from June to June, and from Ramadan to Ramallah, is explanation for everything between it, if you avoid the major sins, the five the five daily prayers are our daily pistons to strengthen our sub rejuvenator. So
you have to understand
it's not just flesh and blood, flesh, but console are so awesome. Every single day, you cannot go
a whole day or you can't go 24 hours.
without food, you're gonna be very hungry. Eventually, you're going to die, there's just a certain amount of time.
Without water, for example, After three days, your body will no longer function. And
after three days, your body will no longer function.
The same way with food, you have a longer span of time. But in the end, if you don't feel yourself
it will die.
And so our bodies, we need all types of different types of food to spend.
But the thing that we forget,
we forget is the spiritual aspect.
That also dies. And that also needs
energy and strength, rejuvenation, all of it, it needs it needs them. And so every single day, the five key daily prayers these are the fueling pitstop. These are our mealtimes but not real time for our physical body for the spiritual
because if you don't have it, you will die and you'll be hungry and you'll feel terrible.
The other side, a lot of us we neglect that side. And you need vitamins also, believe it or not eating vitamins every single morning.
We our bodies,
we enter our bodies, every single joint in our body and so forth.
All these joints
they need vitamins and those vitamins
and so forth. They remember
to strengthen us to keep us strong. And so the daily daily and our daily lives
become you know you when you're busy going to work when it's time to pray praying
that's the time when you need to refuel yourself spiritually
you have to refuel your email
on Fridays this is the weekly the weekly checkup the weekly pitstop and that the month the yearly pitstop the yearly pitstop is Ramadan
and then the once in a lifetime is
when you check yourself and that says What does oh boy do that in haloacetic but what do you need to rejuvenate yourself? What's the fuel that keeps you going
the profit and loss of Hansen is what the zoning zoning is take with you provision this fuel with you for in the highest Azad the best fuel and the best provision you can take with you on your truck right now is
and that's why we fast
the red the read Mashallah is and I'll see ya listen to the reason why we've had a loss
quotevalet como se quotevalet como si.
that I level that
was the reason for testing or you believe
First thing has been prescribed upon you, just as it has been prescribed.
For Why not?
In order that you may attain that, which is the closest translation you can probably give it is God consciousness, being conscious and
knowing that he's always watching. And this is, we fast for the sake of a lot, but the fruits of the fasting, what are the fruits of fasting? It helps you to attain piety, righteousness, and God consciousness. How does it do that? Listen to what the prophets have said.
column of the item called
all the deeds of the son of Adam, the sons of atoms, the sons of Adam or his illness, except for fasting for in only what I desire.
But except for fasting, fasting is mine, and I will be the one who
will give everyone
what does that mean?
What does that mean, when we say that fat with a loss of power says, fasting isn't everything that we do for
prayer and God and so forth. But fasting is special? Why is it special, because nobody can really fast unless you have,
unless you're sincere.
Unless you're conscious of or not, you will not be able to fast you won't fast is the only deed that you really can't force anyone to do.
If they do it, it has to be, it has to be accompanied with. Why? Because when you fast.
When you tell your kid to fast, for example, you suddenly say, son sit down in the sun fast. You tell him fast? What is prayer time you tell them to go make
when he makes a little, and he's raising his mouth, he can bring all he wants, and nobody will know. Can you force him?
When he prays, you tell them to pray if you don't see him pray
Right? But when it comes to fasting, when he's by himself, he can drink all that he wants, he can hide and eat and so forth. The only thing that will prevent him from doing or not doing so is if he's conscious.
And that's why that's the day that that is what is preventing us from drinking when we know nobody can see us. Not a single person can see you, except Allah. What is it that's preventing you from drinking,
it's because you know that if you drink, just a small drop,
on purpose, your fast will no longer be valid, and you have to make
that's the reason because you know, a lot knows, you can say, nobody will know a lot more, nobody can say that, you know.
And that's why you don't do it.
That's why you don't do it. Because you're conscious of it. So fast, it trains you to always think and be conscious of a lot. And if you can abstain from that, which is halaal these are the normal things that are allowed with normal eating and drinking are allowed for us in normal days. But if you choose abstain from something that is a requirement for life, you can stay away from it.
And so forth,
you should be able to do so also.
You can't say to us, unlike in the state from that. What do you need to live
while you abstain from food and drinks when you have to? Remember, we said you couldn't do you can't stay away from it. When nobody's watching you and you didn't drink when that met time you don't allow who's watching you. Now when you're when you're in front of the internet about to watch pornography or something like that. You think about this and now
you think about this and No. So you realize, you know what?
That's why I didn't drink. That's what I can do this and that. And so all of this. The Fast thing is to help us attain taqwa and to help us reveal ourselves and to help us change for the better. And Allah gives so many opportunities in this month for us to change. That if you don't change in this month, then I don't know what kind of human you have in your house.
Why because the loss of a hammer gives us the opportunity
To forgive us how to operate for us to repent and change our ways. Listen to what the Prophet Solomon said. And
he said that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu
wasallam said, When sama Ramadan, he abandoned the Santa.
Whosoever fast the month of Ramadan, with the true belief in Allah, and seeking the reward from Allah alone, nobody else, you do it for the sake, and you fast only because the law has told you the facts. And you only want the reward from Allah alone. And no other reason. This album is you want reward from Allah alone and nothing else. No other reason, you're not fasting because you want to lose weight, you're not fasting because everyone else is fasting. You're not fasting for this or that, even though some of these things like you know, health matters, and so forth. Those are secondary, but that's not the rest of the reason.
These are the things that you may you may attain from it, but that's not your intention. That's not your intention. And so,
if you fast solely for the sake of Allah, what it will allow you to do
mad at them into a run will forgive you all the previous
all the sins that you committed, he will forgive you, obviously. So that's an opportunity. But notice that what the prophet SAW said, Men sama, Ramadan, whoever fasts the month, he did statements on the Yeoman minimum a lot a day a normal.org, shopping a minimum about
one week of Ramadan. Now he said,
Okay, so you got it. From the beginning to the end, we do
that, let's say well, that's, you know, sometimes we can't do
a lot still gives you another opportunity
gives you another opportunity. And that's all but you know, for the woman that don't pass the whole method or not, they still get whatever
they do for a loss.
A loss of profits or loss episode set the scene for those who may be the negligent one or two days and so far, they, for one reason or another, they weren't able to achieve this, this goal, fasting solely for a second so far, for the metronome about what we just mentioned.
A lot still gives him another opportunity.
You know, you messed up on that one, you still got an opportunity, you're just like a chance. What is the process of
whosoever stands up to pray and
with true belief in Allah and doing it solely for his sake, not to show off or anything like that, but you're doing it only for hoping for the hoping for the reward from Allah Subhana Allah wolfelt Allah who might have
all of his previous sins
you'll have all your sins be forgiven for all the previous be forgiven?
If you if you stand up and nighttime to pray
whoever stands up to pray so notice that the font for some sort of live set man Palmer, Alanna, whoever stands up depending on you know what? We got classes and sometimes you got to go the morning wake up. You might miss a few days. I only got
the weekends, two days and weekends are difficult everyday to fast and pray every night. Okay. Okay, you still got one more. Last
Got one more strike.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said,
when the Palm Pilot, the man and
also ever stands up late at night, a rent
seeking them with a belief in Allah, Allah and hoping for the reward from Allah Allah. Allah is previous and
you have kind of one more chance just one night.
Just one night and you can break it down to the nights. He said yes, Tara take up even night. You got the odds. You know, you got the odds. You just have a few days.
To spend those nights make sure you pray.
so gracious, just one night, all your previous.
You do it solely for the sake of
so this is the month of change. When the boss
wants to forgive and allows for handling that wants to have
Have mercy upon people, then Allah will help you. But you have to make take the first step, you have to take the initial step first, to try to change and so repent to Allah and make the full conviction and when you know you're in full conviction, don't just go halfway make the full conviction to be the best person you can be the best Muslim you can be try to improve yourself every single day. And this is the month that Allah has given us the opportunity to do so. And he's made it easy for us also. How's he made easy for us?
was so free that
when Ramadan comes in Muslim when Ramadan comes
the doors of Paradise are open and the doors of the Hellfire close that open for those who want to go to Paradise knows how fire close
and then they
are locked up. Or shackle the shell Tina shackle
so they are shackled. Why are they shackle is your enemy. And Allah shackles him so he can get used to doing good, and they continue to doing good. And so you can change. This is your opportunity. You know like for some people, it's very difficult to pass. The sooner password is not rolled on. They can't pass nothing in one day. It's like, Oh, yeah, what a fast but will you pass. Like when you get hungry after
you come out of class and everybody's eating? Oh man, it's only sooner I can just break my fast right and it's like, so difficult, right? But when Ramadan comes, Mashallah you go to the end, you can do it. Unless your love is showing you you can and the loss of handle that has been shackled. That's why it's so much easier. So if you don't change and you don't repent, when there shall be no shackle, you think you're going to do it when he's released.
You want to wait to his release and then do it.
This is it. This is the time. This is the time to make that conviction. This is the time to change. And this is the time to ask for forgiveness. This is the time to be the time to do all that you can, that you can do now is good to change yourself. And so during this month,
this is also the month of mercy
and mercy. What is the mercy? mercy? mercy?
mercy how Why is it so important? It's important because
nobody enters paradise with their deeds. Nope. You will not be able to enter Paradise with the prophets. Nobody enters paradise. And so the companions is even you know, a lot of deeds that you didn't care to pair this because you didn't even myself, unless Allah Subhana Allah has mercy upon.
You know what that means? Why is this the case? Why can we interpret it as
our this can be a reason for mercy, but the actual entry into paradise is because of the mercy.
Why? Because Paradise is very expensive.
Paradise is so great that knowing that no matter what you do, you can never pay for paradise. No matter how much you how much how many prayers 1000s how many 1000s of prayers you pray, you can never use that to pay for paradise. Only because of the mercy of Allah. Why? Because paradise.
paradise, you can have whatever you want.
You can have anything that you want. You can do whatever you want.
Whatever your heart wants, you can you can, you know, people work very, very hard.
You know, some people, they buy houses, and it takes them 30 years to pay off, pay the house, they pay those payments. And then the house might not even be that nice of a house. And if they did buy a really, really nice offer next to the river next to the river next to the ocean, whatever it may be. Sometimes they spend, they put so much effort in paying for that house that day. Isn't that how much they have to wake up six o'clock in the morning, five o'clock in the morning, and they are never late. Why? Because if they're late too often they might get fired that might not make the payments.
And they tried to do their job the best that they can because they're afraid of getting fired. But especially with the housing markets and other foreclosures and stuff right. They're afraid to lose their job because they're afraid to lose that house. They are willing to get up at six o'clock in the morning and get out to the traffic's, no matter how tired they are every single day for 30
just to live in that house
and paradise that houses like, there's no comparison whatsoever.
You can have whatever you want.
So how much are you willing to work together?
To get everything that you want to say you've got it?
How much if people are willing to work for that they fit that many years, just to get that house and probably they're already 30. By the time you finish saying that they're ready. They don't even get to enjoy it right? Most of the time, like they say, Oh, this is my house. Most people some people don't even get that.
But they're willing to work 30 or 40 years.
that you know, what gives you even more than that, no matter how much you do, in comparison to what you're going to get in Paradise, it's so much greater, that you are only entering paradise because of the mercy.
You know, you have a child,
your child wants a bike.
Once a bicycle, this bicycle
is a very nice bike, like $250. And he wants this bike.
And he's been asking for like, months in almost a year. You know, everyday insisting is fantastic. It's really cool back.
So you really, you know, you tell your son
to keep your house clean.
This clean your room, super clean.
He goes to his room,
trying to like do the best that he can come back after half an hour.
clean and smelling good. And everything right. 30 minutes later, he's trying very hard to clean up his book. 30 minutes later.
Let's go to the store.
In 30 minutes, how much money do you make?
$250 Did you really make a lot? Did you give him money? Because he cleaned his room?
And if you can play somebody run for 20 $50. Let me do
That's pretty good. Right?
$50? Did you give it to him? Because of what he did?
No, he gave it to him because he felt sorry that he had mercy. He didn't deserve it. But because you saw. So he did. So he cleaned it so well. And like he went right away. So you felt sorry for him you have mercy. You know, you felt pity for him. You know, you felt you love them because you have mercy.
And so you go you by a friend. He didn't earn it because of what he did really what actually it is connected to what he did. But what he did was not worth what you're going to give them it's not equal? Well, you're going to give him as much more than that.
So a lot of what he's going to give you is so much more than that. But you have to earn it by earning the mercy.
So every time
you know, sometimes when you're tired,
maybe you're tired, but
I hope that a level Forgive me have mercy upon you. And so you stand up the next day.
Instead of try to focus in more focus. We're only doing this so that you're hoping that you know a lot more have mercy upon. And so maybe on that day, a lot more.
Also, and I see that you're working so hard,
even though you're tired, but you still want to take that extra step, make the extra effort, yet earned my mercy From this day on. You are most people paradise, walking on this earth picture most people
after that alone will help you do all the needs of the people.
So don't be little.
Don't ever be there. Do all that you can as sincerely as possible, and hope in the mercy of God because this is the month of mercy. Have mercy. Have mercy towards your, your fellow classmates, your fellow Muslims
here and all over the world. Maybe allow have mercy upon you just like the puppets that will affect
that woman have mercy upon those who are on earth and the one who was in the heavens will have mercy upon you.
And so this
Is the math of generosity, being merciful towards others. And don't be live have a deep because any deed, it sincere, maybe Allah will say, you know because of that deed, I will enter this person paradise, and every deed that you do hope to Allah works will have mercy upon you, because have that have that in your mind, even if it's a little thing, because you can enter Paradise, even if you just fed a dog.
And that's what happened.
When the prophets of Allah told us, he said that there was a woman, this is
She was walking around, walking in the desert, she was very, very thirsty, I came across.
So she went into the world. And she drank and so she was quite shocked.
When she came out of the world, she saw that there was a dog that was licking the wet ground around the area of the world.
And she felt sorry for the dog. And she said, You know what? This dog I was, so first
this guy is just as
just as thirsty as
they can jump in the road.
So she goes down, she fills up with leather socks, of course, she brings it up, she has the
and losses, this deed of this prostitute and the loss of parents, they taught her that the process of setting aside a Muslim
developer gave in another narration allowed into her paradise, because she had mercy towards a dog
towards a dog.
That was the that was the turning point in her life. And last saw that and is thankful for what that person did. He saw the mercy in their heart, and Allah have mercy in it had mercy towards that person.
this person was calling towards the dog,
Now imagine if that person was kind to other
kinds of human or even better Muslim
relatives. These are people these are Muslims. If you had that, you're helping your brothers helping your sister. You prefer others over yourself. When you say inshallah, you know I'm going to give this to this system or this brother because they needed more than me, maybe I
have chosen to chose you.
And you have to understand that the prophets of Allah
in Ramallah, especially the Knights of
olive trees, Allah subhanho wa Taala
freed people from the Hellfire more than any other man.
Because this is the month of mercy. Meaning Allah chooses more people and says, You know what, these are the people. He's chosen this person because this month this person did this.
So you have your chances of being amongst the people of Paradise, a way of doing this.
And if you know your chances are way up, what should you be doing?
You should be trying to do all that you can to achieve the mercy of Allah, in hopes that Allah Subhana Allah will say to you, I have chosen you.
I have chosen
amongst those three from the hellfire.
And then from that time on, I lost my hammer, the hammer will keep on guiding you and tell you eventually.
But you know, it might be 2008 maybe it was September. What's today's date?
September 6 2000. Was that night that you were chosen?
Because you took the extra step because you had that extra concern.
the process of allowing that to happen
don't ever be
meaning your brother
with a happy face the smile.
a man also into paradise because
I've just cleaned away from people.
There's a tree that fell down he was blocking the pupils way it was making difficult making it difficult. So he said you know this tree is causing a lot of hardship for them to go around.
He pushes it away. And he says the way
thanks for what he did, because it was hard.
Because you know what I want to do this,
I want to give this back to the Muslim movement is pushing this field making easy for other people to go. And you know what, he got paradox because
anytime you do something, then
as you know, when we love each other, the process overlaps and says
you will not
you will not have the, until you love each other, knows you have mercy towards each other, and you love each other.
you'd like me to show you something that you can do to make you love each other. He said, I've just
spread this around.
So spread this around, and also the thing to make us love each other.
gift, exchange gifts, love each other, give each other gifts, and you'll love each other.
It's not something that to give gifts. During the
year, you want to give gifts, no.
You get gifts when
it is a candy bar.
But you know, they're expecting something sometimes it's very, you know, like, if you enter society, right? We are living in this, you know, materialistic society.
If you ask any,
any Christian, what's the most stressful time of the year
they will tell me
holiday season, they might they might tell you at the time of joy, happiness. But they will also tell you it's the most stressful time of the year. You know why it's stressful.
Because you got to buy this person that this person this. And then in the end, sometimes you don't get what you want.
Sometimes, you don't get what you want. But you got to buy so many people. Yeah, it's good to see presence, but you're expecting it.
Normally, if somebody were to give you that in March, you would jump for joy. But you know what, you got that. But it wasn't like up to par with what you really want it and you're sad.
You're sad. So you don't have Muslims, you give gifts. But don't give it
that always do. Try to be consistent in this awesome. So you love each other. And when you love each other, it's easy to help each other do good. And this is how you achieve true.
Because it'll keep you away from sins. When you love each other, you don't back by each other.
When you love each other, you work together. When you love each other, you respect each other's opinion. When you love each other, you can get projects going really quickly. Nobody has an ego and brother is always so nice.
Let him have his way, you know, right? Then because you know, you're always helping each other. They're always giving gifts, he feels this love. And then the community goes forward. And then the MSA goes forward, and then your family, everything that goes smoothly because you love each other. And then it's easier for you to pray. Go to the masjid, when
you're not stressed out to death.
You have a mind in your heart, and you're happy. And you think the last man for all that you have. And so your path to Paradise is made easy, because you love each other.
And so next time is that this is something that you should be
when you go to the store next time when you buy something for yourself. Think of somebody, your uncle, your brother, your husband, your father, your mother, doesn't matter who it is. Just buy them something, give them a present. They're not expecting. You didn't come from you know, you're like, you know, you go back to Malaysia and come back or something like you have friends here. They are expected to buy something for the right you know, but whenever we are like just all of a sudden just cover up a box of chocolate for example.
back to chapter $3 brother
like with your spouse, for example, let's say you know, I said next
He's not expected. And then you get this present, even as a box of chocolate three and 399. Man, he's happy. He's really happy. But if she was expecting something, and for example, okay, if you have to give something, okay? If you gave her, you know, just something even more expensive diamond ring or a gold ring or whatever it is, she might not even be as happy as when she wasn't expecting.
But you know what, that's a point scoring. So whether it's consistent, you want to score points with your spouse.
It's not how expensive it is, how many points you can score.
With, every time you go to the
think of your uncle.
Uncle, I just have a gift for you.
Next time, when you give your query, right, your dad, like your dad's not expecting any come back from that, look at this pin.
Yeah, you can have your whatever you want.
But you're not doing it for that, right?
You're doing it for Allah sake. But you build this loving family. And so let's
You're used to doing it stop.
And then when they
come with a surprise,
but be consistent, and then somehow just do this, maybe somebody
doesn't have to be something very expensive. $5 and $10 we're not expecting it, man. It's
It's great. built this bond. And you'll see that your family, everything, you know, they won't be backbiting about you anymore. So you don't have to worry about what they're saying you have to be stressed out about that.
You know, in the community and the family and the, you know, in your organization, whatever it is, you see, it's totally changed. So this is the month
that we should make those convictions and start make our plan. You know, from now on, because this is a training.
You know, before you meet the enemy, you have to have your plan.
For Milan, the enemy is shackled up. This is training
in the army. And so for Navy, whatever, whoever it is, when they practice, when they train, what do they do? They kill each other
is the enemy they're the enemy is not there. But they're practicing. See if the enemy was here, what would you do?
Okay, if he's not here, okay, if he's here, this is why
he's not come from this side. This is what we do. This is the formation that we
And you're practicing prayer, fasting.
Now you know what to do. So when the enemy comes back, that's when you attack.
When he attacks you, this is your this is what he
does. He's taken away his training season for us. But he's released. If you don't train them, this time, you're not
you're not going to be ready.
So that's why this month is very important to rejuvenate, to strengthen our email
to help us gain conscious consciousness. So you remember
I was by myself.
Nobody would have known
only allowed it
and then normalize over for when you're by yourself thinking about committing a sin.
I didn't drink the most time because I knew I was conscious. And I don't think the last night conscious right now.
see, that's just a ploy. You didn't do that demo, don't do it.
You don't have to do it here controlling yourself. And maybe we'll leave a certainty maybe because of that deed that you had all these people like pulling you. And then you left it and you did for Allah sake. Maybe alongside
He was able to do it. But he didn't do it.
Why? Because he feared because he had he was conscious of chosen people paradise.
So every single day. compare yourself for example, you know, sometimes you feel the urge to backbite it's like, man, I gotta talk about this person. I can't, you know, it's like you have that urge, right? It's like, you know, it's wrong, but man I have to do it. You know?
Sometimes in that case, like, that person did such a such thing. I have to tell these people, right? Like, man, I can't use like it's about to explode, right? So you say to yourself, what do you say to yourself?
Would you prefer to speak about that person release that pressure? Or would you? I'll give you paradise?
I'm not gonna do it, because
it's not worth it.
It's not worth it, just this flashing moment, you release this, that you want to fulfill your desire.
either this or paradise? Which one would you choose?
to put yourself in?
Would you trade that preparedness? Of course not.
Why would it be this person, I don't like them anyways.
Like, I don't even like this person. And they're causing me to call
me I don't want to give to them anyway. So because you're talking to them, you give them your good deeds to them.
Like you hate them anyways, you don't even like them, but you're helping them in the process, why would want to help them. If you don't like that person, don't talk about them. Because the only thing you're doing is giving them more good deeds.
Just like in the present.
person, I'll give them a more presence. Right? If you do want to give presence give them presence of this duty.
Because that's more valuable. That's what happened.
one of the students came to him and said,
You, this person always talking about
always talking about
Such as I was talking about.
So they're thinking like, he's gonna Bash him and say something, but he goes to the marketplace.
That's a marketplace. And he goes
to give you so much.
I hate you. And I'm talking about
helping you you
give me so much all I can I can afford to give you I'll just thankful for what you did.
You know, you've given me so much good deeds, like prayers and fasting, it's tiring to get up in the morning. But if you given them for free, like anyone asked for.
So you're so generous, this is all I can give you back back to you. That's all I can afford. So the guys
trying to make a statement.
And so he repents to the past and ask for goodness.
And he becomes one of his closest students,
and just sits with him all the time. Because he realized,
instead of like, Yeah, he gives an
I shouldn't be talking about him anymore.
You know, let me learn more about it from from this person. And so he becomes one of the students. But this is the macro change, control your time. Whatever you doing, and this is, you know, this is the hope that will give you paradise
to pray every single day
join in helping other people look for projects and try to bring forward maybe, for example, we want non Muslims to realize about fasting, I think you guys have fast stuff on coming up and so forth, to help with it. Maybe your actions even though your brother, your friends and your companions, they don't know what you did behind them and to get this project going to get everything. Because all these people don't know, Allah still knows. And do that and hope that one hopes that last time will say maybe, you know, I've chosen this person and most people paradise because they
took the extra effort. They didn't do for anybody I
must say that you have chosen numerous people.
So everything that you do do it for his sake. That's why the proper sense of massaman
Well, we're back to the maximum amount of true belief in the law, the certainty in the belief with a true faith and a loss of time and seeking the reward from him alone.
It's very important seek everyone from then inshallah
I went a little bit over
the telephone and you'll get a second microphone.
love each other. May Allah Subhana Allah gathers the highest level and paradise with all the prophets and messengers, just like yours gathers today inshallah maybe we can talk to get to paradise. We asked the last panel that he's able to
anybody has a
I might ask questions.
That's what I do,
So what do you think?
Yes, it would be considered innovation, if you chose that time to be consistent, it's always that you do,
it will be considered because you have set something
you know, giving gifts, is something that's recommended.
But you chose just need to do it and you always doing the time,
then you're just imitative analysis.
In choosing that time, and as I mentioned, there are you see the ramifications.
And just think about what makes them so stressed out.
And the gift is actually not that valuable, in terms of its, you know, in terms of its effect, because you might, they might spend a lot of money on something, and you spend a lot of money, but you know what, maybe that's not what you really want. And just, it's just not, it doesn't show true love.
Natural love because you have to do it. So let's say if you didn't do it, and you didn't love that person, but you didn't, they will hate you for no reason.
You know, like they didn't, they didn't hate you, they will feel very disappointed.
You know, this is a great bait. It's a major sin now. But it's supposed to be a season of love and forget forgiving and self worth good thoughts about people and things like that, that becomes the opposite.
And that's why they take advantage advantage of it, you know, in commercial.
you know, if you don't get anything from him, try to find some chocolate every time you go to the store, buy something it doesn't cost about you know,
what do you call it?
Hershey's Kisses or something? Those you know, those are No, they're not expecting it. Even if it's $2 that we have.
It was $1 store balloon, they'll be happy.
If they're not expecting it, honestly. And so that be consistent. And you'll see that the people around you will treat you differently, but you don't do it because of that. And it will be easier for you to play.
community in the loop the whole all the Muslims
give each other, each other, speak to each other and help each other we're always helping. That's why it's okay.
To train ourselves to be Muslims. In fact, Ramadan is how we should be all year round.
But alloxan has chosen this month just to wake us up. This is how you should be it's not only for this month, we tend to be this way. This is the path
and this is how Muslim should be
as a Muslim.
It shouldn't. They should be the same.
And you should be praying the night prayers anyways, all the time. But Allah Subhana has ways shaken us up refueling ourselves reminding us Hey, you know what? All these years all these months you've been forgiving.
It's time to change Wake up.
smell the roses, right.
Know what's really going on.
