Fasting in general, is a great weapon against a person's desire. Fasting is a great weapon against a person's desire. How long does I'm speaking about. And you know how many people today complain that they cannot control their desire. They cannot control their gaze, especially when it's the month of summer. Or, you know, with plenty of fiddling around in the world, especially the mobile phones. However, I could sit in a room and watch what's held on hours and hours on end. Not only that, people are watching the how long at work. People are watching the how long while they drive their cars, not fearing that allows social could send upon them anything that will destroy them at that

moment. Any long time ago, when they were only this tops, people would watch the harm in their house. Now when it's on the phone, people are watching the harm in their car in the bathroom. in the workplace, Allahu Akbar. And I don't know of any case of a person watching something Haram in the masjid, but it's not far fetched. Allah hook but people could do anything with shavon has deceived and fooled the people. Even fasting is a great weapon against a person's desire. Fasting destroys the desire. Fasting gives you control over your desire. It gives you control over your uncontrolled desire and uncontrolled gaze. Where's the proof of diffident? Where's the proof for this and Nabi

00:01:34--> 00:02:16

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, you know, a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he advised the person that's unable to marry, that's unable to find someone to get married to what did he advise him and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised such people that don't have the means to get married. Let's say he doesn't have money. He didn't find a spouse yet, or whatever it is. He said to him, finally he was sown, then commit to fasting for inner hula who is yet because fasting Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, fasting is a means to control and reduce a person's sexual desire.

00:02:17--> 00:03:01

In and this is why you need the first three days of every month to control your desire to suppress this desire that's going to destroy you, my brother and sister in Islam if you don't do anything about it. When Obi salallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, finally, he was so committed to fasting for him, a hot boy elbasan Sanyal in photos, because fasting is a means that will control a person's gaze, and it will protect his private parts, it will protect him from Xena and from doing anything. How long, just like Xena in a put in where a person fulfills his desire. This is the effect of fasting and its experience not only to sit down and explain to her how this happens, anyone that

00:03:01--> 00:03:50

fast realizes that he's able to control his desire much more than a person that is not fasting. This is very true. My brothers and sisters in Islam, a fasting person has more control over his gaze and over his tongue and over his desire more than a person that is not fasting. You know why? Why? Why Why so? Because of fasting person truly and genuinely fees, Allah subhanho wa Taala where is the proof of this? You know, in Sultan bacala when Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke about fasting. And he said that fasting has been prescribed upon you just like it was prescribed upon those before you why what was the purpose of fasting, like on the moon so that you may attain dulquer that was the part

00:03:50--> 00:04:37

of what was the purpose of fasting. The purpose of fasting is to aid in taqwa. So a fasting person is truly and genuinely fearing Allah subhanho wa Taala a fasting person. If we told him Go to your room, no one will see you go to your room and eat something. What do you do it? Would a fasting person go to his room? When he knows no one is watching him and he would he do it? One lot, he will not do it. And if we ask him, why didn't you eat when no one was in the room to see you. He would see one lie he would see because Allah is watching over me a lot like well, where did this come from? That's what fasting does. It puts the top bar inside the people. And so as a result, this is

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

why I'm saying a fasting person has control over his gaze. He knows how to lower his gaze and turn away from looking at that which is how long and a fasting person is able to control his desire. Because if the gaze is controlled, if you're not looking at what's wrong, then B is Nila hidayatullah. Your private part will not be engaged.

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

In that which is Hello Subhan Allah. So this is the second reason for why we should commit to this fasting, especially for those people who have this problem in where they cannot control their desire.

00:05:12--> 00:05:20

Or people that are finding it difficult to get married because they don't have the financial means to do so. Or they haven't found the right spouse yet.
