00:01:20--> 00:01:28

Alhamdulillah to the blessings in the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada we have finished the first of the month of Ramadan.

00:01:30--> 00:01:31

And this blessing

00:01:32--> 00:01:49

is something that the Muslims are proud of, because it was something that was just given to this ummah, only, all the nations will order too fast as Allah subhanho wa Taala said and suited Bukhara Yeah, you know quotevalet Kumasi, m Kanaka.

00:01:52--> 00:02:18

O you who believe fasting has been prescribed for you as it was fasted for those who prefer to prescribe for those who prefer you. But the difference is they didn't have Ramadan. And we had the Ramadan. Allah bless this oma with the month of Ramadan, and the night of laser cutter. And he blessed us with the opportunity to have all our sins forgiven for those who first and pray during this Blissett month.

00:02:19--> 00:02:44

Also, one of the great things about Ramadan that a lot of us tend not to pay attention to is that Ramadan is a madrasa. It's a school, which teaches us how to be proper Muslims and how we should be all year round. So it's a renewal, a revival for us and our Eman And this is a call and a reminder for all the Muslims to continue after the month of Ramadan.

00:02:45--> 00:03:02

And one of the greatest things that Ramadan focus on teaching the Muslims is the issue of taqwa to have Taqwa. And that's why I said in the verse that I mentioned before, a minute ago, when Allah subhanaw taala said that fasting was prescribed for us and those will be for us at the end of the verse.

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

Perhaps that you obtain the taqwa the fear of Allah subhanaw taala. And

00:03:09--> 00:03:15

as even Habib Rahim Allah as he described it, he said and Tamil

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

Allah, Allah told you

00:03:20--> 00:03:30

that the chakra is to work with the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala and light from alarming the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

and normal law

00:03:34--> 00:03:44

that you want the reward from Allah subhana wa tada to your actions. And then he said in the second part, one touch of mercy at the law LLM in a law

00:03:46--> 00:04:16

or the law that you leave the displeasing the bad deeds and the sins which is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala on life from Allah subhanho wa Taala you fear the punishment of a law and in a small definition, evil Tamia Rahim Allah He said that a taqwa is to do that what you have been ordered and to stay away from that which you have been forbidden. And you move on, you find that Allah subhanho wa Taala. He focuses on the issue of a temple, for example, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

will tend to assume

00:04:21--> 00:04:46

the issue of a choco he unless he causes in the name of the men, and he tells us to feel alone and to have every soul look for that which he puts forth for tomorrow. The most important thing in this dunya is that we put forth is what we put for tomorrow. So before it also tells us to focus on this. He says it's not the law. And then after he says what the law again, he mentioned that against supanova Tada, this is one example.

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

And you'll find the issue of Tableau and the prophet SAW them all through the sooner you'll find that he mentioned the taqwa and the famous Heidi it tequila, Fear Allah subhanaw taala wherever you may be, so the chakra becomes part of your life.

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

Not just in the masjid not just in Ramadan when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says

00:05:06--> 00:05:12

that you feel alone at all times in all places in all aspects of your life. So we need to focus

00:05:13--> 00:05:20

on benefiting from the tacos we have gained in Ramadan in building on it and continuing inshallah throughout the year.

00:05:21--> 00:05:45

And we'll also need to focus on is the issue of the plan Alhamdulillah. During this month, we have renewed our relationship with the Quran. Unfortunately, so many of us we tend to become busy with the affairs of the dunya and we forget reading the Quran when Ramadan comes to Canada with a new relationship with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala we need it in our lives. It's who then as

00:05:46--> 00:06:24

described in the Quran, its guidance to mankind is she found enough it is a cure for what is in our hearts and we need this. So Pamela even though in some researchers, they found that the non Muslims when they hear the affected by it, because of the beauty of the new citation, and they're not out of their understanding. So how about the Muslim who use the Quran and so we must focus on shall on benefiting and having a relationship with the Quran continued. And as the scholars of Islam mentioned, that a Muslim should read at least everyday one Jew zoo, so we can finish every every month have one. And if you can't do that, at least half of us Oh, he finished every two months in

00:06:24--> 00:06:25

shallow to about a katana.

00:06:27--> 00:06:52

Also this month and reminded us to remember Allah subhanaw taala at all times, and to focus on purifying our souls. And humbler we can say as Muslims. Now the non Muslims they focus on chasing the things of this Junior thinking that they will find happiness, but we know as Muslims that the true happiness is in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala very clear in the Quran, Allah decree law

00:06:54--> 00:07:24

that clearly to the members of a law, the hearts are sure. And he mentioned in the other verse, the people who turn away from his remembrance of Allah what's Allah woman out of the Gryffindor, whom I shot and banca that whoever turns away from my remembrance, that he will live a miserable or difficult life. So we need the remember the remembrance of Allah dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala in our lives at all times. And that's where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when one of the Sahaba came to him and he said, give me advice. And he said to him, there is

00:07:26--> 00:07:38

that your turn to always be amazed with the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala is to constantly remember and also patana at all times, and this month was the month of Ramadan, it is a month

00:07:39--> 00:07:55

of honor for the Muslim ummah. Because it is the month where the Muslim almost made victorious, and several battles throughout the history of Islam. Some of the most famous ones, obviously was the lesser was the Battle of better the first

00:07:57--> 00:08:36

battle between the Muslims and the non Muslims with loss of human football when he showed the truth between the head and the bottle during this great battle. So the country of Mecca, Mecca It was during this month, also the conquering of Indians, which is now known as Spain today, it was during the month of Ramadan in the year 92. And also the famous war of angels also was doing this and many others was doing this, so it's a month of honor for the Muslims. And this reminds us that hamdulillah even though the Muslims now are at a time of weakness, then inshallah Tada. The truth will come back and it was there for two days here, but he will continue, it will go strong again.

00:08:36--> 00:09:09

And the honor will be for the Muslims at the end and shall automaticall Tada. And this also reminds us when we see how the Muslims battle during Ramadan, the importance of benefiting from our time, because unfortunately Muslim nations time has no game It means nothing to the people. But when you see that the Muslims that some of the greatest battles of Islamic history were during Ramadan, it shows you that there's a time for the Muslim holidays to strike even when they were fasting during Ramadan. And if you look at the ayat and you make the EML you focus and reflect on the ayat FCM after loss upon what Allah said what

00:09:11--> 00:09:24

he said to that specific amount of days, also the focus and teaching the Muslim during this month and benefiting and focus from benefit of his time. Also we learned during this month in the School of Ramadan. The importance

00:09:26--> 00:09:33

of being steadfast on the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala by doing that, which is pleasing to the law and stay away from it, which is pleasing to them.

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

And we learned during this blessing month, that domestic abuse Allahu alayhi wa sallam holding firm to the tune of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you find the Muslims during this month, whatever, wherever whatever school of thought they're from whoever they're from. If they're a weak Muslim, a strong Muslim, all the Muslims want to know how to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to best Why do we break our fast with dates. A lot of people maybe in their customs, they don't eat dates.

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

When a big

00:10:01--> 00:10:27

assume that our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, anybody focused on breaking their fast with the DCE just this is one example if you look at the total we're coming together focused on reasonable on more Holidays from the sooner so people hope faster, the sooner and this is what we need to do. If we want to be successful as with the whole firm to the suit of our profits in the long run, he was sitting in the premises and he said he told us, they have been urging you to hold on too tight with your teeth. And he said in another heavy

00:10:29--> 00:10:32

maintenance said to be the new body of law.

00:10:33--> 00:11:13

I have worked with you. If you hold firm to it, you will never go straight the book of the law and my sooner. Imam Malik Rahim Allah He described the sooner as like Safina at noon, the ark of Noah La Silla, so that we will not be successful as only people who are successful who got in the ark with noelia salaam. Also the only people will be successful in this journey and only the Muslim who will be successful is if they hold tight to the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described the fast, he said has siano agenda, that the fasting is a shield, a shield, just like you have a shield when you're in battle, and you

00:11:13--> 00:11:51

put it up so you won't get hit by the swords in the spiritual have you. Also the best thing is a shoe for you from all the evil from a chiffon. So let's look at some examples of how the fasting was a gender was a shoe for us during this blessed month. You'll see that we learned during this month to control and lower gaze verb investor as Allah subhanaw taala orders to do in the morning. I'm sorry him, all the Muslims know that they must know their gaze when they see a beautiful woman or something that is fitna and also the proposition and he prescribed us the same thing. The Muslims know this, but they become weak. And the fitting. And the time we live in is so much but um, that

00:11:51--> 00:11:54

during Ramadan, a Muslim reminds himself when he's fasting, he says

00:11:55--> 00:12:31

I'm fasting. So this is how we should be at all times. So this is a training session for us to continue on this after Ramadan, also being truthful and stop lying and stop cursing and saying everything is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam auditors to do in the famous Hadith, when we are fasting we have trained ourselves to do this during Ramadan and we must continue inshallah after Ramadan as well also leaving el Viva backbiting in the MENA Alhamdulillah. We are successful in doing this more so in Ramadan, she was important also that we finish that we continue inshallah to do this after Ramadan, especially for our sisters, because

00:12:31--> 00:12:42

our sisters and their siblings, they continue to they talk more than the men. So they fall into the backbiting more than men. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala in certain jobs,

00:12:45--> 00:13:19

that another people should not make fun of other people. And this means if I'm also kind of wattana, we have just said this, it would have meant the male and female as it is in all the verses. But then he said after this well, and he said, he said, and that women from women, they show the importance because the women, they're famous in their cities for talking about other people. So now Ramadan, our sisters, and also our brothers have focused on leaving this backbiting and talking about others, and we must continue on inshallah after Ramadan. Also we have learned during Ramadan and trained ourselves to control our anger. And some of the biggest problems that we face in society come from

00:13:19--> 00:13:25

people not being able to control their anger. If we were to go to the judge now and see somebody who was

00:13:26--> 00:14:00

who's convicted of murder, they'll operate things off from that. But if someone is getting convicted of murder, why did you murder someone? So what's he gonna say? I was angry. The divorce is now the person adores his wife the first time, the second time, the third time now she's not Hello for him. He's looking for a way out. Why'd you divorce your wife? I was angry. Why would you patient I was angry. And so now you see now that the relations between people in the room between the anger handler through the first thing we teach ourselves to control our anger during the month of Ramadan. And we must continue after the month of Ramadan as well. Also, the say that fasting helps us when it

00:14:00--> 00:14:20

comes to the brothers who are in business. And they have fallen into peril by cheating other Muslims or even non Muslims cheating people who come to buy from them, who deal with them by cheating them. So when you look at the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when it comes to cheating, it's very, very strong, heavy, machinery.

00:14:22--> 00:14:59

Very strong, heavy, the person who ever cheats us, but he's not famous. So anybody who lies when they, when they sell stuff to people, when they deal with other people, the process of describing is not being famous, it's a major thing. And a lot of the brothers will fall into this how they were able to stop this. So we must continue as well after the month of Ramadan. Also when the greatest things that a woman has trained us to do, is the issue of loss to have sincerity to a loss of power. Tada. And why is fasting so great, and making a loss or sincerity so strong? Because fasting is from the expert, nobody sees it. Nobody knows about except Allah subhanho wa Taala if you're fasting

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

knows. Now you can go into your room you can drink you can eat nobody knows except Allah subhanaw taala so you're training yourself to have a clause and a stranger the importance of to heed that you only offer your exhibition only to and also kind of Atlanta and you don't offer any acts of worship to other than Him subhanho wa Taala so is a training session for you on this that you continue after Ramadan as well. Also we have trained ourselves during this month to focus on the slot in JAMA to focus on our prayer in the congregation with the Muslims and this is something we strive to do also after Ramadan, also the pm of Lee that we continue to pray the pm during the night and not just

00:15:35--> 00:15:55

during Ramadan. As you mentioned, the position of Mr. play all the time all year round. It wasn't something he did just do it. He might increase in Ramadan, but he would always play 11 rockets and he would play so long even outside of them are going to his feet will become soon it is Salatu was Salam. And as he said he has them you do this and loss of Allah tala has forgiven your past and future sins. And he said

00:15:57--> 00:16:13

Do not be a servant who is thankful to Allah subhana wa Tada. And also the father's wrestling he prescribed the night prayer to the Sahaba even during the Mexican stage in order to make their emotions strong when he did that after he put him to heat and this night for that's why they're so successful when they reach Medina

00:16:16--> 00:16:18

also we have we have trained ourselves during this blessing

00:16:19--> 00:16:52

with a great thing that all of us need which is a sober patience because it's not easy now to leave that which is Helen for you pay attention to this when you're fasting you need that which is Hello for you need food and drink sexual intercourse all of this you leave which is highlighted for you with your with your wife, or when you're eating and drinking. And needlessly also play for Allah subhanho wa Taala doing this specimen so this tissue patients also we mentioned before the training of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for us, if somebody were to approach you or say something bad to you what you say in the sign in the sign very interesting, very interesting to teach yourself

00:16:52--> 00:17:16

patience and will not be successful as individuals also have an appeal to pay patience and the problems we face in this union. That's what most of what Allah said was that he noticed that he was allowed and to seek assistance through the prayer to the suburb barakallahu li will happen for animals sooner. Wonderful anywhere can be my family. I had to pick him up Ooh, holy Heather was the follow Holly will happen for Sophia Whoo hoo, hoo hoo.

00:17:29--> 00:17:32

Bismillah hirokawa salatu salam ala nabina Mustafa with

00:17:34--> 00:18:09

the blessing of Ramadan has trained us and taught us so we can continue after the month of Ramadan as well. And from the things that has taught us the importance of a brotherhood in Islam, we come together with our brothers don't we we come together as brothers doing it for the rich, the poor, the different nationalities, we have all come together as one. And they'll have one hope, which is for the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala. And also it is tennis to be generous during this month in the publisher send them as it came to the head, the kind of edge within this, he was the most generous of people. And the more generous he would be was during Ramadan, but also the Muslim has to

00:18:09--> 00:18:43

be generous all of the time. And I want to point out, we talk about these points and their points number 12 and 13, which is the importance of brotherhood and being generous, that what has happened to our brothers in Pakistan. I mentioned this morning, I'll mention it again now that how many million 12 or more million who are homeless now and don't have anything because of the floods. So we need to remember them and they were a blessing here, we need to remember them, every man should take out part of his money and see how to send it obviously need to check out a good way I'm sure I'm sure you have the charity organizations here, the either organization or whatever, then they will

00:18:43--> 00:19:13

send the money and make sure the money gets to the brothers. So everybody should take a part of his money, then these next few months to send to the brothers and sisters there because they are in dire need of it. Also this month has trained us to make dua to Allah subhanaw taala is the period this month is that we come together and make dua during the Torah. And the do is so important, and unfortunately tend to forget, then we're so busy in the dunya we forget about the importance of duality, as something bad happens to us. The first thing we do is look for the last stuff who can help us out.

00:19:14--> 00:19:41

People will forget to make dua to Allah subhanaw taala. So Ramadan has remained this know that principle, and having our heart attest to it, as the President said in the Hadith, even if it's something if your shoe were to be whipped, and you make dua that you get to get it fixed. Even the smallest thing you should look out for as we will talk about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also this month has trained us it's the month of villager and the whole formula supernodes Allah, hope and fear of initial panel data, we hope

00:19:42--> 00:19:46

that whoever fasted Ramadan whoever prays during Ramadan whoever prays later,

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

three men and through the hope that he'll get the word from Allah subhanaw taala that his sins will be forgiven. So this month teaches reject have strong hope from Allah subhanho wa Taala. He will accept from us our deeds

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

And also to be fearful Muslim subpoena wattana we trained ourselves to stay away from all that was just pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala in order to have our good deeds accepted, and we talked about the hope and the fear and the hope in the worship, we see that the scholars of Islam they described the whole thing that our agenda, the fear and the hope as the two wings of a bird. They said, it's so important in your act of worship that you have hope, the same amount and the same amount you have hope and fear 50% 50% you have a lot of hope.

00:20:30--> 00:20:33

For Rahim is the most generous and if you get the he's

00:20:34--> 00:20:53

a severe punishment, so Muslim must be 5050 and it's just like the two wings of the bird. And they said, just if something happened to the one wing of the bird, what's gonna happen, he's going to crash and fall down, he's not gonna be able to fly. So also the Muslim if he doesn't have this as like his a burger will not be accepted from him. It won't be correct.

00:20:55--> 00:20:59

The next point is that Alomar has taught us about

00:21:00--> 00:21:05

teaching us to hold ourselves to account just as every time we will do some days Hello, remember it's Ramadan.

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

When I say I wish

00:21:10--> 00:21:33

somebody curses at us we say we're fasting. So we've been training ourselves and we score them passively you're holding yourself to account and the importance of this mahaska that some of the self rahimullah is to say that every night before you go to bed, you should hold yourself to account for everything you have done during the day every night. So you see what what you've done wrong and make sure you don't do it the next day. And now what you have done good and you increase in Charlotte next day as well. And the last point we want to point out

00:21:36--> 00:21:47

is that we need to be returned a certain amount is to be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala which were lost at the end reverses of the same that we will be thankful for this

00:21:48--> 00:22:25

is one of the reasons that the same is prescribed for us to be thankful. So let's be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala that he has blessed us with His blessing month illness continuing to either he will slip from us and make us default or there was any shortcomings from us inshallah He will make he will he will look over it and he will accept from us our fasting and MPM in all the goodies that we have done during this month. And we must remind ourselves as I said in the beginning that one of the main things that Ramadan is teaching us one of the main goals of Ramadan is not just forgive us our sins, it's to give us the capital that we need and to call us to continue throughout the year to

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

do all the good deeds that we have been doing.
