Today we want to look at the internal struggle of the believers in the month of Ramadan.

00:00:16--> 00:00:29

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Manuela. Ramadan is a time of striving. Ramadan is a time of transformation.

00:00:30--> 00:00:42

And the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him had nine Ramadan's in his life. The believers went through tremendous changes during this time.

00:00:43--> 00:01:00

And since it came in after the hijra, this is where we see the events after the great migration from Mecca to Medina in the first year after the Hijrah the hypocrites al Munna Philippine of Medina,

00:01:01--> 00:01:06

built a masjid in opposition to the Prophet's mosque.

00:01:07--> 00:01:21

And that Masjid mashallah Dirar was a blow to the believers because the Prophet's mosque much of the novel we had been established. The community was was sound and the foundation was there.

00:01:23--> 00:01:40

And the hypocrites wanted to break this up. And it was during that time the believers did not lay down, they did not go to sleep, but they stood in opposition to this in order to unify the community and mashallah the raw was taken apart in this month.

00:01:41--> 00:02:32

In the second year after the Hijrah, the internal struggle was not just the internal struggle of the community, but it came into the material personal struggle of the believers. Because in the second year after the Hijrah, sacchetto fitter was prescribed, and that is to give something at the end of the month that you have to be now giving. You can't just look at Ramadan as a time of the abstinence from food and drink, but it is a time of giving. And that in a sense for the believers was the the essence of a victory over the self because the self wants materials, but this month is the time to let go. This month is a time when believers truly give up themselves and realize that that is the

00:02:32--> 00:02:40

essence of being one who submits to the Creator of the heavens and the earth in the blessed month of Ramadan.
