Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim hamdulillah alameen wa sallahu wa Taala Allah say, Lima aka in the Vienna Mohamed Salah, alihi wa sahbihi Vegemite, or bat Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. The month of Ramadan is rolling in, time is changing, and we are moving into the month of fasting. But what is the essence of fasting what is the essence of this month? It is a special time. It has been designated by the Creator of the heavens in the earth. And in the 185th verse of Surah Al Baqarah. Allah subhanaw taala has told us Shahada Ramadan, Allah, the unzila fi helper, an houden, the NES, what big netadmin alhuda one four Khan, that this month of Ramadan is the time which the core and
was revealed in as a guidance to humanity and as clear evidence from the guidance and from the photon, that which separates truth from falsehood. And so this is a time of guidance. This is what we need to look for in this month. Right now in the world in this year, we are so much in need of guidance. We are so much in need of big net clear evidence, no longer gray areas and false things, false statements and false understandings. We want things to become clear. So that we will have the for con we could separate Hawkman obatala truth from falsehood, we would be able to see what is around us and to be able as an oma to come out of the stagnation that we find ourselves in. As the
world is going through its tremendous changes. Ramadan is a chance for us to energize ourselves is a chance for us to stand up again to make Toba to repent to Allah azza wa jal to come back to the straight path to correct some of these mistakes that we have been making before it's too late to hold on to our brothers and sisters, instead of our fearing other Muslims or instead of opposing and wanting to hurt other Muslims, and also to be able to reach out to all of humanity and not to be afraid of people as our beloved Prophet Mohammed Salah Salaam, was a rahama he was a mercy for all of the worlds not just the Muslim world. But the world of other people of other faiths.
The plantlife world, the world of animals, the world of the jinn,
the universe, the environment itself, which is suffering so much in which is throwing off heat is throwing off forest fires. It's throwing off volcanic lava, it is rumbling with earthquakes. It is causing the wind to blow in terrible ways. It is causing the rain to pour down and floods to wash wash us away. This is not by chance. This is by design. It is a test. And it is guidance from Allah azza wa jal. So as we move into this sacred time, as we fast as the world falls under the mantle of Ramadan, may Allah bless all of humanity with this mantle, whether they know it or not, May Allah help us, protect us and give us the best the best in this life. And the hereafter was Salam alaykum
