00:06:39--> 00:06:40

hello

00:06:43--> 00:06:47

all

00:06:51--> 00:06:59

Isla lalong

00:07:05--> 00:07:58

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen I share the word La ilaha illallah Walia Salah him. Well, I shall do under Mohammed Abdullah water solo Hartman and BIA he will more saline Allahumma salli wa salam ala Abdi COVID a su Li Ka Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa manda da vida de he was tender be so naughty Illa Yomi Dean was tell them to Sleeman Kathira Allah bad fo cecum are enough see the top Allah azza wa jal was Sam he will talk while you're cool, I'll hug Suparna Yeah, you have Latina on a taco la haka to Kati wala tomo to Allah wa and to Muslim on all praise due to Allah, Lord of the worlds and surely Allah is the friend and protector of the righteous.

00:07:59--> 00:08:37

And I bear witness that Allah has one and has no partners. And that Mohammed the son of Abdullah is His servant and his last messenger. May Allah always constantly send peace and blessings to Mohammed to his family to his companions. So all those who calls to his way and establish his sunnah to the day of judgment as to what follows I begin by reminding myself and you have the eternal Words of Allah azza wa jal, who has told us or you who believe, fear Allah in the way he should be feared, and do not die,

00:08:38--> 00:08:41

except in submission to Allah.

00:08:42--> 00:08:50

Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala has enabled us and allowed us to pass through the month of Ramadan

00:08:51--> 00:08:54

and to be now opening into the new year.

00:08:57--> 00:09:02

And Allah has revealed mighty words eternal the words in his book

00:09:03--> 00:09:20

and he reminded us that we should constantly have the consciousness of the Creator and that consciousness that Taqwa is not just on special occasions. It is not just in the month of Ramadan, but it's all year round.

00:09:21--> 00:09:34

And that Taqwa can protect us against the trials and the tribulations which are awaiting us in the world that we are going into, as we have left the month of Ramadan.

00:09:36--> 00:09:40

And for Abdullah, for the servant of Allah.

00:09:42--> 00:09:56

Ramadan was like a training ground, Sophia to shayateen. The Jinn were controlled evil, thoughts were under control, and the doors of paradise were opened.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

And so Ramadan was like a training

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

round before we go into the game,

00:10:03--> 00:10:08

to prepare ourselves, for what is ahead of us. And for Abdullah,

00:10:10--> 00:10:13

the spirit of Ramadan continues

00:10:14--> 00:10:21

to love for the Masjid. The easy option in his life or her life,

00:10:22--> 00:10:31

to pray to Allah azza wa jal remains constant. And for Abdullah and Emma to Allah, to male and female servants of Allah,

00:10:32--> 00:10:44

their hand is still loose with giving. And so sadaqa will flows from them, as it flowed from us, especially in the last 10 days in Ramadan.

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

For Abdullah,

00:10:48--> 00:11:33

calling to the good, forbidding evil, recognizing what is around him, what is around her, is part of a consciousness that is with him or her constantly. It's like a flow. And so the E day is like a door, and the door opens up. And now we are back in the world, with all of the trials and all of the tribulations that we faced before and even more. Because we learned that Allah told us shahada, Ramadan, Allah, the onzie, the fee helper, and who done the NASWA units, and min alHuda. Well for Khan, we knew when we learned that this month of Ramadan was the time of the revelation.

00:11:34--> 00:11:42

But it was a time of guidance, clear proof evidence, from the guidance of Allah and from the photon

00:11:44--> 00:11:46

that separates the good from the evil.

00:11:48--> 00:11:55

And so the eyes of Abdullah remain low it

00:11:56--> 00:12:02

it doesn't change. Because Ramadan has left, the tongue remains clean.

00:12:03--> 00:12:10

And so the person naturally stays away from saying evil and bad words, or lying.

00:12:12--> 00:12:16

The hands of Abdullah and Emma Tula stay with that consciousness of Allah.

00:12:17--> 00:12:21

It stays with that feeling of submission to the Creator.

00:12:23--> 00:12:24

And that is a great blessing

00:12:25--> 00:12:29

that Allah has given to us as we enter into show while

00:12:31--> 00:12:34

but there is another character who lives amongst us.

00:12:35--> 00:12:37

And that is not Abdullah.

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

But it is up to Ramadan.

00:12:40--> 00:12:42

This is the slave of Ramadan.

00:12:44--> 00:12:50

And the slave of Ramadan is in submission not to Allah. His submission is to the month of Ramadan.

00:12:52--> 00:12:58

And so when the month comes in, when the new month comes in, he changes.

00:12:59--> 00:13:02

His eyes start to look at everything.

00:13:04--> 00:13:08

His mouth starts to say things that he would never have said before.

00:13:10--> 00:13:19

His understanding of himself and other people changes because his lord has died.

00:13:21--> 00:13:26

But for Abdullah, his lord is Hi Yun lair moot.

00:13:27--> 00:13:30

Allah is alive and will never die.

00:13:31--> 00:13:45

And so we all need to struggle against this. Abdul Ramadan that lies within us. It's a test within us all and definitely, it has changed. No time is going to be like Ramadan.

00:13:47--> 00:13:53

But the conscious choices, the conscious submission to the creator

00:13:54--> 00:13:57

needs to say stay on the same level.

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

And that would move us smoothly

00:14:02--> 00:14:06

into the time that we are in at this point.

00:14:08--> 00:14:26

And so when we reflect on Ramadan, we recognize that Allah subhanaw taala blessed us with this fast and blessed us with a way to increase our Taqwa. So, the shields around us increased in the month of Ramadan.

00:14:27--> 00:14:33

And Allah subhanaw taala also blessed us with the ability to see

00:14:35--> 00:14:39

what is in front of us and that is the type of bus era

00:14:40--> 00:14:58

because the angels do not have desires like human beings. They are not desiring food they are not desiring procreation like human beings. And so in Ramadan we are in an angelic state.

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

We are in

00:15:00--> 00:15:19

A state of submission where we consciously are submitting to Allah, we are consciously depriving ourselves of things, we turn off the desires. And so by the end of month of Ramadan for the person who was fasting properly, and not over to the nighttime

00:15:22--> 00:15:23

a whole body

00:15:25--> 00:15:30

and the relationship to food has changed. And shahada, Ramadan,

00:15:31--> 00:15:33

gave us Alpha con.

00:15:34--> 00:15:49

It gave us that criterion that could separate good from evil. Because as people were eating and drinking in the society, we would not eat eating and drinking, we would not thirsting for these

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

desires.

00:15:53--> 00:16:01

That is the animal stage, the animals get up in the morning, and their main struggle in life is food, it's survival.

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

But the angels are on a higher level.

00:16:06--> 00:16:14

And so we were able to come out of the animal state into the higher level, into the higher consciousness

00:16:15--> 00:16:19

to recognize the blessing of Allah subhana wa taala.

00:16:20--> 00:16:27

And for those who were conscious of the fasting, we recognize that the fast has levels to it.

00:16:28--> 00:16:36

There is the general level, the soma awam. And we learned that that was the fastest people who are just struggling the food and drink.

00:16:37--> 00:16:51

But there was so milho was, and that is the high level of fasting. And that was where the eyes were fasting, the tongue was fasting, the hands were fasting, all parts of the body with fat.

00:16:53--> 00:17:04

And we recognized and we tried to reach them in the last 10 days that there is a highest stage. So Kawasaki was and that is where the heart is fasting.

00:17:05--> 00:17:15

And that is the highest level because the consciousness of that person, the heart of the person, not just the physical heart, but the conscience was fasting.

00:17:16--> 00:17:22

And so that type of fast, enables the person to overcome pride,

00:17:23--> 00:17:45

being proud of ourselves, because we come from a certain country or because we look a certain way or we speak a certain language tried, we were able to overcome this because we recognized by the end of the day, that we are human beings and the body needs sustenance. So how can you consider yourself a god

00:17:47--> 00:17:50

we will also protected from hasard

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

protected from envy and jealousy.

00:17:55--> 00:18:13

The hardest cleaner part is able to see past the life of this world and to recognize that the life of this world is but sport and play. It is here today and it is gone tomorrow and as Allah told us, well, Malhotra dunya in the title of

00:18:14--> 00:18:19

the life of this world is nothing but material, deception,

00:18:21--> 00:18:22

material deception.

00:18:24--> 00:18:24

And so,

00:18:26--> 00:18:30

the higher level of the fast was protected

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

from

00:18:33--> 00:18:49

all of the bad qualities got up the anger as we learned from the Prophet so seldom that if somebody wanted to argue with you, or to fight with you, that we should say to that person in the saw him I am fasting

00:18:50--> 00:18:52

and so outside of Ramadan.

00:18:53--> 00:19:09

When the argument comes when the negativity consultant comes when insults are thrown at us, we should also remember we might not say in the saw him unless we were but we could say I am from the fasting people.

00:19:10--> 00:19:20

So being of the fasting people means that we carried on the struggle that fasting became part of our personality.

00:19:22--> 00:19:38

And now the flow is there and we are able to enter the May Dan into the field of the struggles in the hieratic dunya in the life of this world, and the struggles have intensified.

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

It has intensified

00:19:42--> 00:19:47

and we recognize from this struggle of Ramadan, the fasting was a personal thing.

00:19:49--> 00:19:51

And that personal decision

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

that personal submission to Allah subhanaw taala needs to continue and the Muslim world is now

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

In the barrel of decision

00:20:04--> 00:20:29

in most of our countries, a serious struggle going on between the haves and the have nots between the so called powerful people, and those who do not have the weapons, a serious struggle, but Allah subhanaw taala has power over all things. And as in the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, those who did not have the material world, were able to overcome

00:20:31--> 00:20:35

the proud tyrants that lived in this planet.

00:20:36--> 00:21:28

And so as we leave this month, as we have now entered into the new field, we can only ask Allah subhanaw taala to continue to bless us to enable the Muslim world, to strengthen to bring sense back to our leaders to bring sense and courage to those who are on the ground. And we pray that Allah azza wa jal would accept from us, our fasting and our prayers, and our standing in the night. May Allah azza wa jal accept all of our good deeds. And may Allah clean and purify the Muslim world with this fast may Allah raise up a new generation who will take us from darkness into light. And may Allah azza wa jal help us to be with them. And help us to be of those people whose last words are

00:21:28--> 00:21:45

their best words. Whose last words would be Kelly Mala ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hakuna Kohli Helga while stopped Fulani, welcome. Well he certainly was the minimum Coulee Dam been Estelle Pharaoh inna who who have a photo Rahim.
