smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen or salat wa salam ala rasulillah while leaving your site be as remain, all praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala and may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon his servant and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as thought follows my dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam as salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakato. And as we are only hours away from the holy month of Ramadan, it is very important that we refresh our knowledge

00:00:36--> 00:01:22

in order to prepare our souls and our hearts and our minds and our bodies for this pleasant and holy month of Ramadan. So what I wanted to do in shall not Allah is share with you a couple of important matters that were supposed to recognize and acknowledge from now. And pay attention to from now on all the way throughout the month of Ramadan and be in the Lair hit the Allah. They will help us in making the most of this blessed month of Ramadan. My brothers and sisters in Islam. I wanted to start by sharing with you a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is a hadith that was narrated by upon her and obey the lead of the Allah one.

00:01:24--> 00:01:58

So what happened obey the lead hobbie Allahu anhu. He says, analogy Laney min Balian Padma Allah rasulillah himself sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or Ghana is their mobile marriage me I won't happen obey the law while the Allahu anhu. He says in this narration, that there were two men from the town of belly. belly is a town that was close to Allah Medina, and these two men were Jews. They approached el Medina and they came to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they embraced Islam. They accepted Islam together at the same time.

00:01:59--> 00:02:23

So one of them had more efforts in Islam. He was more steadfast to the point that he joined one of the battles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was martyred as he Shaheed visa v the lawyer and the other one. He lived one ye longer then the Shaheed and he died on his deathbed, a normal natural death.

00:02:24--> 00:02:45

So polycarbon obey the law Hobley Allahu anhu. Later on, he saw in his dream, that three of them, the two men that have now passed away, that were Jews and embrace this lamb, one died as a matter the other died natural death after one year on his deathbed. And Tonka saw himself three of them, they saw he saw them,

00:02:46--> 00:03:08

that they are standing all at the doors of the paradise. So upon have been obey the law, how old they are long one who he says, someone came out from the paradise, and he called the one who died one year later, the one who died a natural death. He called him to enter the paradise and he entered the paradise strange.

00:03:09--> 00:03:16

Then, this angel came back out and called a Shaheed second to enter the paradise.

00:03:17--> 00:03:40

And then this angel came out and he said, Papa, urban obey the lair. Go back, your time hasn't come. So tell her all the Allahu anhu he woke up from his dream from his sleep. And he was surprised and amazed at what he saw. How can the one who died a natural death enter the paradise before the Shaheed before the battle?

00:03:41--> 00:04:25

So probably Allah, one who went around in El Medina, and he began to tell the companions and inform them about the dream he saw, and everyone was surprised and amazed. So they went to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they narrated the dream to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they said the AutoSum Allah, how can this be the one who died a natural death on his bed? He entered the paradise first. And then the Shaheed entered the paradise second, how does this make sense? We know that the Shahid has great virtue and merit and reward in Islam, and we expect him to enter the paradise first. So how can someone that just died naturally on his bed, enter the paradise

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

before Shaheed and this is of course, it's a big deal and you probably would say that, you know, both of them eventually ended up in the paradise what's the big deal? There's always something special about being first. You know, today. There's always something about being the first one to buy the new iPhone or to buy the latest shoe or to buy whatever it is that is new. There's there's an excitement in the news media, they would interview the person who first bought something that was released, so it's a big deal to be the first to enter the paradise for Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:05:00--> 00:05:22

When he heard this dream, he said to them mean a valley katashi a boon What are you amazed by people? What are you amazed by? So they said el sol Allah. We are amazed by the fact that the one who died naturally entered the paradise before the one who died as a matter for Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to them,

00:05:23--> 00:05:26

Elisa magatha Heather by the whole center.

00:05:27--> 00:05:57

And the reason Allah wa alayhi wa sallam told them didn't the one who died naturally live one year after the show he didn't he live one more year after the Shaheed they said yes for Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, What adult caroma Baba for sama, sama Kava Kava amin says that in the center and didn't because he lived one year extra. Didn't he pray this many and this many Roccat and didn't he fast on my one.

00:05:58--> 00:06:41

So Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us Didn't he have one more Ramadan extra than the Shaheed and he prayed so many like out and so many prayers more than a Shaheed they said yes, yellow Sol Allah, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them from a bay you know Homer are bad to me maybe in a summer you will or below Miko levy sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that the difference between them both of them in the Paradise is the difference between the heavens and the earth, Allah what and so my brothers and sisters in Islam, what we learn from this hadith is that automobil is a golden opportunity to be elevated ranks and ranks with Allah subhanho wa Taala. This

00:06:41--> 00:07:29

person that died naturally on his bed, entered the paradise and gained a higher rank than a Shahid Fie severely left because he lived to witness one normal born extra and he prayed many other God extra than the one who died as a Shaheed The one who died one he earlier than him, Allah hakavod when the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says, There is no one better in the sight of Allah than a believer who lives a long life, full of the speed and tech be entirely and damage to Allah. No one is better than a believer who lives a long life of righteousness, a long life of worship. And so what I'm about is a golden opportunity that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah we ask him, that he allows

00:07:29--> 00:08:13

us to live to witness this film about a golden opportunity to earn for yourself a high rank and a station with Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's a blessing my brothers and sisters in Islam to witness yet another Ramadan. We need to first recognize and acknowledge we need to acknowledge this. And we need to know that Allah azza wa jal he reprimands and he warns those that are ungrateful to his blessings, Alma bond is a blessing. If you are ungrateful to this blessing, Allah azza wa jal warns such people in salt bucket Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, What made you but dill near met Allah mimbar the measure for in Allah Harshad ido a pub, that whoever Allah says Allah warns, whoever

00:08:13--> 00:08:57

exchanges the fever of Allah Zoysia he exchanges that after it has come to Him, then Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala his punishment is severe lockable, so Alonzo Hill is telling us in this air, that the one who exchanges the fever of Allah, instead of being grateful to it, he makes it the reason for his ingratitude. He neglects it, he abandons it. Allah wants such people of his punishment. And there is no doubt that Allah mobile is an opportunity for all of us. And it is one of the greatest blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala every single he gives us on mobile is such a huge blessing that even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself would express his excitement at its

00:08:58--> 00:09:01

arrival of a horrid all the Allahu anhu he narrates, and he says,

00:09:03--> 00:09:45

Can and maybe your soul Allahu Allah He was a limit your best sure as hell like what he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to congratulate his companions on the arrival of Ramadan. He used to congratulate them, but ledger blocked him a whole line. He said this haviv is a foundation and a proof for why it is permissible for us to congratulate each other on the occasion of Ramadan, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to give the Sahaba good news and he used to congratulate them on the arrival of Ramadan he would say to them, or the akansha Ramadan, he said to them that the month of Ramadan has come it has finally arrived. Now Sahaba they all know that it's

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

coming Everyone knows that in a few days. thermobonded would come so why is in the beast of Allahu alayhi wa sallam telling them something obvious. This implies that a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself was happy and was excited and full of joy.

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

To share this news with them and to remind them of Ramadan, he would say to them paja Akasha Ramadan, Ramadan has arrived Sha Hoon Mubarak, he began to describe this month so that he can excite his companions and get them ready so that the heart soul and the heart and the mind could get ready for this Blizzard month, you would give them important information about this month. He said Sharon mobile like it is a blessed month. What does that mean? A blessed month meaning it is a month in which the good deeds they increase, because the blessing is something to increase. So you will naturally find in yourself that you will increase in your good deeds in this month, as opposed to

00:10:41--> 00:10:58

any other month show on mobile like and the show on mobile It could also mean that it's a drought from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as though he's seeing Allah make it a blessing for us, for us and then he says, Good the Bali concat Allah Allah.

00:10:59--> 00:11:44

Allah azza wa jal has ordained and made obligatory that you fast this month fee to double gnn in this month, during this month, the doors all the doors of the paradise or open Allahu Akbar, as though Allah azza wa jal is saying I want to I want to grant you my paradise. I want to admit you all into my paradise and into my mercy and in my forgiveness. Every barrier between us and Alonzo Hill is open. Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to accept His servants in this month. There is no Connect various it's as though there is no barrier between us and Allah subhanho wa Taala the connection has been made between the people on Earth and in the end and what is in the heavens and

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

in the paradise the connection is open he to

00:11:49--> 00:12:32

what to how Luffy Ababa him and during this month, the doors of the Hellfire are locked a closed as the law so gently saying, I don't want to punish you, all my servants My servants I do not want to punish you. I do not want to admit you and put you in my fire. This is for the disbelievers This is for the arrogant This is for people that do not appreciate my blessings and fevers upon them to Allah. avoidable Rahim where he too hung up his shell when and during this month, the devils are chained, they are locked up and the effect of the shepherd is going to be weak upon us. And you know a shelter you know two types. There are external devils and there are internal devils. The external

00:12:32--> 00:12:58

devils are those that are roaming around those that are free and roaming around this world. These are the devils that are chained up and obese Allah Allah sent me says what Sunil Silla to Shelby in the literally the shell three and a chain and they are locked up. As for the internal shame upon which is unclean that is inside of us. He's still around, he remains inside of us and there is a Lola while he was alive. He says

00:12:59--> 00:13:43

that in the shell porn allegedly meenie miney mo mercial or dumb the cache upon the clean the SharePoint inside of us, he flows in our body, just like blood flows in our body. However, the internal shape on al Karim, his effect is going to be dramatically reduced, and his was worse and evil whispering is going to be dramatically reduced during Ramadan. And this makes a lot of sense. Why? Because when someone is fasting during the day, when someone is fasting, the only thing he desires and thinks about is food and drink. Because he's given that up, he's getting hungry, he's getting thirsty, you're thinking about food and drink. In other words, you're thinking about

00:13:43--> 00:14:30

something permissible, as opposed to someone who's not fasting, a person who's not fasting and has eaten and drinking and his fat satisfied and his stomach is full. What does he think of that? What does he begin to desire? He begins to desire that sins, and how long well he will be there. Even as you are fasting. You're only thinking about food and drink which is something hello and this is why a sheer Pons effect has dramatically been reduced during Ramadan Allahu Akbar Luffy shell being that they are severely chained and locked up. For luck about it. Allah azza wa jal doesn't want us to be distracted he removed the biggest distraction on our life, which is a shell being the devil is the

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

biggest distraction in our life. Last version removes him and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says fee he lay in a total room in Elvish. And during this month, there is one night that is better than 1000 months of worship. This is Lila to other than Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says warning us about the one who neglects this month warning us about the one who becomes lazy during this month and ignores the bliss

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

of this month, he says manhood in Ohio I have heard him that the one who is deprived of the goodness of Lila to other, what's the goodness of little cuddle being forgiven from your sins that ever is deprived of this great reward. He has been deprived of all forms of goodness he's been deprived of Allah's mercy of Allah, his forgiveness and many other things a lot about my brothers and sisters in Islam. In this hobby of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it is apparent to see the excitement and the joy and the happiness of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam for the arrival of the blizzard month of Ramadan, and you can also see the excitement of a Sahaba of the alarm on home for

00:15:42--> 00:15:50

this blessed month of Ramadan. But at the end of this hobby, it's a little bit scary. In the reason Allahu alayhi wa sallam is warning us,

00:15:51--> 00:16:35

as good as this month is as much as Allah Zoysia wants to forgive and admit people into the paradise. If you if you neglect this month and abandon it, and don't realize its importance and its significance and its virtue and its merit, then you're upon a dangerous path. Why do I see so because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself once he was ascending the member, and as he was going up this member, he began to say, mean, mean, mean three times or so how about the Allah one whom first time they ever see this? So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam finished the whole band came down? He said to them, they said to him, we all assume Allah, we heard you seeing me

00:16:35--> 00:17:24

in three times. Why did you say mean? And mean is supposed to be said after? We didn't hear anything I've been made? Why did you say every finale sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the companions, Attorney, gibreel jabril came to me and he said to me, Mohammed, Abdullah, come on, follow me on the third level for above the hula. And in another narration, and for me in the HANA alley here on my bomb, let me over for level jabril came and made the drive and he said, or law, me the one me the one who enters on mobile and comes out of Ramadan, having not been forgiven for his sins, may he be humiliated, may he be shamed me he be disgraced. Who made this interview Salalah while he made it,

00:17:24--> 00:18:13

and then there is a llama Holly, you seldom said no, I mean, can you please make the dryer by command from Allah, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said mean, what a curse. The one who enters Oman and comes out, have not been forgiven for his sins, which is the greatest gift of Ramadan, or one of the greatest gifts of Ramadan. Such a person has been cursed by Allah by gibreel. And by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, it's important to prepare for this month, in order to avoid being disgraced. In order to be successful, we need to make the most of it and to earn the great gifts that Allah Zoysia has made for this month. And the

00:18:13--> 00:18:34

great gifts of this month, our forgiveness, the mercy of Allah being freed from the fire, elevated ranks with Allah subhanho wa Taala always a gift of this month, we need to collect all these gifts. And just like with anything in life, in order to be successful, you must prepare, we must prepare, you see look in life.

00:18:36--> 00:19:15

If you have an exam, you must prepare beforehand. If you don't prepare for your exam, you fail the exam. And as you're writing the exam, you know you're going to fail, right? And the one who doesn't prepare for Ramadan, comes in Ramadan. during Ramadan, he will know he'll have the feeling that he's failing. We must prepare for Ramadan. Just like you prepare for exams in this worldly life. Whenever you have a meeting, let's say you had a meeting, you prepare beforehand, an agenda what is going to be discussed in this meeting and so on. Otherwise, if everyone comes to the meeting without any preparation, everyone's going to waste time and gain no benefit whatsoever. Before a job interview

00:19:15--> 00:19:55

what happens you must prepare people sleep early, get up early dressed the best you can your papers are ready, your documents are ready. And then you go to your job interview and you will feel like you will gain success after that right in everything in life we prepare and so Panama even in matters of worship was supposed to prepare. So before we pray were supposed to make we'll all go to Al Masjid repeat after the more and then pray a sooner and then we pray the follow up all of this is preparation for unfold. You know so Pamela contrary to the one who doesn't prepare for solid and just comes right in Allah Kemal how's he going to develop sure and is solid. This is why we complain

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

we don't have to worry now solid because we do not prepare for our solid. Look at and how you

00:20:00--> 00:20:25

Kalonzo actually tells us what does what do Pack your bags packet get prepared before you go to house and the best thing you can prepare with Allah says that in the halal Zadie taqwa but the idea is that Allah commands us in the poor, prepare before you go to Hajj, every single worship this preparation for it, you know, and Ramadan is not different, even look look at the case of when jabril

00:20:26--> 00:20:37

when jabril came to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cut his chest open, took out his heart wash that put it back in. This was the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being prepared

00:20:39--> 00:21:16

for the journey of an Islamic marriage. He was being prepared for the journey of an Islamic one mirage. This is all preparation. Our problem today is we don't want to prepare for our worship. We prepare Allah we prepare for everything in this world we live except for our worship. And then we complain, why can't we connect with our worship? Why can't we feel the sweetness and the taste and the beauty of our worship? Because we're not preparing? Somehow the law look at the one who prays the fallen straightaway doesn't experience any for sure. And this is what we want to do. We want to pray the follow and finish straightaway. We want to first Ramadan and get her over and done with

00:21:16--> 00:21:59

straightaway. This is a negative attitude. This is a bad approach to Ramadan. SubhanAllah even today, what do we find? We find people that they want to give Dawa without learning without preparation $1 requires preparation. You need to seek knowledge. You need to seek knowledge and learn your deen for years lobbies to see mean or limit the need to learn and then you go and you preach and you teach and you give down when Allah subhanho wa Taala describe the Salah you said and what did he say about him while you are living wiki turbo like moto moto Moto G, then what are sulan eW saw el la social describe the Salah is Salaam he teaches him the book. He teaches in wisdom he

00:21:59--> 00:22:41

taught him at the law and in jail next he became a lawsuit he became a person of Dawa and he began to preach and teach the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala so everything in life requires preparation $1 requires preparation. Your prayer requires preparation to get the maximum benefit of a solid has requires preparation. And all Melbourne is no different. All Melbourne requires preparation luck well, and it requires our full attention, our full attention, because this is the only thing that is before us right now on my mind and nothing else. So how do we prepare for this blessed month? Let me share with you a couple of points. Number one, the first and most important

00:22:41--> 00:22:48

way we prepare for this month, and this could be done in a matter of moments. This is why I'm sharing with you now because we're speaking about

00:22:49--> 00:23:33

final preparations before I move on final preparations. The first of them is repentance and seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala seeking seeking a lot of social forgiveness from your sins and shortcomings ask Alonzo Hill to forgive you for all those past sins, the minor and the major, the intentional and the accidental sins and mistakes, the shortcomings that have occurred in your worships our ask Allah sosial that He forgive you. Ask Him to forgive the sickness and the illness and the diseases of the heart from arrogance and hypocrisy and whatever it is. Turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala now with humility, hoping for his mercy and fearing his punishment, Allah He my

00:23:33--> 00:24:21

brothers and sisters in Islam the most successful people in llama bomb of those who entered on mobile and having repented from all their sins, having felt regret and remorse for their sins and said a stouffville Allah Allah He my brothers and sisters in Islam, the greatest word that is going to come out of your mouth just before I move on is a stove little law. It comes out from your tongue with a Cincy heart. One law is one word is powerful enough to destroy a history of sins, to destroy an entire decades and decades of your sins that you have done in the past. Seek of law socials forgiveness in abundance as we enter this pleasant month. See Colossians forgiveness day and night.

00:24:22--> 00:24:59

In the riesel Allahu alayhi wa sallam used to seek and most forgiveness more than 100 times a day. And Allah social loves those who seek His forgiveness. And if Allah Zoysia loves them, that means you will forgive them and he will allow them to enter into the doors of His mercy that are going to open up in a couple of hours when we begin this month of Ramadan. My brothers and sisters in Islam on law we need to realize and recognize that the biggest barrier and obstacle between us and the mercy of Allah sosial are our sins. If our sins are removed, we're going to have the best

00:25:00--> 00:25:14

And most healthiest connection and relationship with Allah subhanho Medina and the way you remove these sins is bill is still followed by seeking Allah socials forgiveness scheffel Islam have been female I am Allah He says

00:25:15--> 00:26:03

that it is a must that every breath the sleeve of a law takes. You take in a breath and a breath comes out with every breath. There needs to be two things that you do one breath in where you praise Allah subhanho wa Taala you say it humbly Allah and the other breath should be a breath in where you seek the forgiveness of a law from your sins Lord, my God. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, when a non avoidable and fusa home full measure Olga for stole for Allah how a stone for Allahumma Rasool Allah worship Allah to wherever Rahim Allah God, Allah soldiers, he says and if they were wrong themselves if they were to commit sins and transgression and wrong themselves, and then they came to

00:26:03--> 00:26:47

you, O Messenger of Allah, familia or oak festival federal law, and they sought forgiveness from Allah was still a federal lawsuit and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sought forgiveness for them. logia de la had the web of Mahima they would have found Allah that is ready to accept their repentance and to be the most merciful towards them. Now why should the law you will find Allah subhanho wa Taala when you seek forgiveness and repent to him, you will find the love in your life, lower the law, and things will open up in your life Allahu Akbar, my brothers and sisters in Islam, even this is the first point and the first thing that we prepare for them upon through

00:26:47--> 00:26:56

seeking Allah sergeant's forgiveness, and making repentance from all that which has passed the second way of preparing for Ramadan.

00:26:58--> 00:27:41

And listen carefully to what I'm going to see carefully to what I'm going to see and I'm going to prove it for you so that you're not confused at the end of it. The second method is to reconcile with your Muslim brothers and sisters, that you have boycotted or hated or cut ties with, you must must reconcile, and I mentioning this because reconciling with them, it can be in a matter of seconds, a matter of minutes. All it takes is for you to destroy the shape on inside of you and run to that which allows social is pleased with and that is to mend the ties between your brothers and sisters, especially if they were relatives. Why am I saying so? Because Muslims that boycott each

00:27:41--> 00:28:29

other Muslims that hate each other, and they cut ties with each other. They are deprived from Allah Zoysia forgiveness, love. You know what this means? One of the greatest gifts in Ramadan is to be forgiven of your sins. In the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Whoever fast slow mo born out of he man and seeking a loss, forgiveness and seeking Allah's reward. Allah forgives them. Whoever prays the nights of Ramadan out of he man seeking the reward from Allah, Allah forgives him for his past sins. Whoever stands leader to Qatar in worship, out of Amen. And seeking Allah is reward Allah who forgive him for his past sins. What does this mean? This means the entire purpose of this month

00:28:29--> 00:29:20

of Ramadan. The main gift of Ramadan is Allah's forgiveness. And I'm saying to that Muslims that boycott each other and have cut ties with each other are deprived from a loss forgiveness. So they come into Ramadan and leave Ramadan having missed out on one of the greatest gifts of Ramadan which is forgiveness. And what proves that they are deprived of forgiveness and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that every Monday and Thursday to a Bible journal, the doors of the paradise are open. And Allah azzawajal forgives everyone, everyone except the disbeliever and two people that hate each other, that have boycotted each other that by uniformat Shana they are charged with anger

00:29:20--> 00:29:51

and animosity and hatred towards each other. A lot would see to the angels undo her the unit had they are slowly her en vooral have even had they'll spell your hair twice. Allah says Allah azza wa jal says on Viru heavin. What does that mean? It means delay these to delay them. We're not going to accept their deeds and we will not forgive them until you're spoiling her until they reconcile and reform and mend the relationship between them.

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

So how, how can you possibly live during these 30 days of Ramadan

00:30:00--> 00:30:35

Knowing that you have boycotted a Muslim, or hated a Muslim, and cut ties with a Muslim, especially if it's a relative, how can you live the days of Ramadan? Knowing that the one who does that is deprived of forgiveness? And then you know that the greatest and one of the greatest gifts of Ramadan is forgiveness? What are you going to benefit now? When you live these days of Ramadan? What are you going to benefit my brother and sister in Islam, when you hold this hatred against someone, or you've boycotted a relative of yours, cut this out, prepare for them alone.

00:30:36--> 00:31:20

Prepare for a move on by seeking a loss forgiveness and then by reconciling with your Muslim brothers and sisters, especially if they are your relatives. And you can forgive in less than a minute call this relative and reconcile with them call this brother call this sister reconcile with them. Make a dryer for them. A lot on social teaches us in the Quran. That we're supposed to be making a dryer. One Latina her own embody him your own or battlefield Lana, Hawaii Nina levina several owner believe man what a shalvey Paulo Vina levina Manu or banner in Nicaragua for Rahim Allah this. This is a wire from the Quran. Allah is teaching us that Muslims are supposed to be

00:31:20--> 00:32:09

making blood for each other, not by cutting and cutting off each other. This is from the Quran, Allah teaches us how to make dua for each other. We're supposed to say Oh Allah, forgive us, and forgive our brothers that came before us and have passed now, and do not make in our hearts real lonely levina M and o do not put in our hearts hatred and envy and jealousy and animosity in our hearts towards those who have believed or banner inaka for Rahim la Miko we should be making this every day in our soul on Earth. When was the last time you made destroyer and the dwell of the of the Quran. It's not only Allah teaching us how to put words together and meet via he's teaching us

00:32:09--> 00:32:52

how our lifestyle and our attitude should be towards our Muslim brothers and sisters. Letter shall feel Kubina real and no Hill is supposed to exist in your heart towards another brother or sister. And real is hatred. And the fact that you boycott a brother or a sister, and you cut ties with them. Allahu Akbar obon Massoud or their loved one who he said when he was asked, how did you companions How would you welcome Ramadan? He would see we used to welcome on my bomb, and none of us would dare listen to what he's saying. None of us would dare to hold an atom's weight of hatred or enmity or jealousy in our hearts towards another another Muslim brother or sister. My brothers and sisters in

00:32:52--> 00:33:13

Islam it is impermissible to boycott a believer for more than three days as an assault Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, lay a Hindu, Muslim and Yahoo for Pathan Earth, it is impermissible to boycott and to cut ties with a Muslim brother or a sister for more than three days, especially if it's a family relative. You know why? Because

00:33:16--> 00:33:58

what am I going to see? When you boycott someone, or you cut ties with someone? Most likely it's because of a worldly matter. Most likely it's because of something materialistic. You wanted to marry LED. So then this Muslim brother went and married her. So now you boycotted him and you got angry with him a worldly man marrying someone or he took my car. He stole my love. He does it probably a business a business agreement. It's probably over a house probably over a job. You wanted the job your brother came and took the job and eventually we boycott each other and we cut ties to each other because of materialistic matters because of manners of this worldly life. And Allah

00:33:58--> 00:34:45

sosial has made it forbidden upon us that we prefer worldly life matters over the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is that when we love each other we are loving each other for the sake of laws. So we shall lead is not allowed to make this pathetic will be life a reason for why you hate your Muslim brother or sister, which is something that allows sosial is displeased with. It is not permissible to make this pathetic worldly life a reason to destroy the greatest bond Allah azza wa jal made and that is the bond of brotherhood, law social set enamel movement, una Aqua Muslims, I brothers and sisters of each other and you're going to break the greatest bond Allah made because of

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

something wildly if then it is not allowed. So my brothers and sisters in Islam. If you have wronged or oppressed someone or have hated someone, go to him. Destroy the shape on that's within you. Go do it pleasing.

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

Allah subhanho wa Taala go to your brother, and sister in Islam today now, say t my brother, between you and i is the inner llama, between you and i is the bond of amen and Islam. And I have wronged you in the past and I seek your forgiveness. And if you have wronged me in any way, I have forgiven you for the sake of loss social and I'm doing this in preparation of Ramadan, so that I may earn Allah socials to giveness during this month, my brother, I want to end this dispute and hatred between you and I say that and then resolve your issue. If it's money that you owe him, give it back then, if it's something of this worldly life you owe him, do it, give back the rights fulfill them,

00:35:42--> 00:36:20

do what is required and necessary in this case, clear accounts with everyone before the month of Ramadan, return what you owe to the people and seek their forgiveness if you have wronged them in any way. And this is I took time in this because it is one of the most important ways of preparing for the forgiveness of Allah azza wa jal in this Blissett month of Ramadan, my brothers and sisters in Islam Allah, the most successful people with Allah are those who will meet Allah social and on the Day of Judgment. And they don't have anything in their heart against any Muslim brother or sister. They are free from

00:36:22--> 00:37:05

they are free from the people's rights. They owe no one anything. They have no grudge or hatred or any jealousy against anyone whatsoever. These are the most successful people with Allah subhanho wa Taala. On the day of judgment, they come under they have gentlemen their packages, like their baggage is like they carry nothing against anyone, like what is our aim that we achieve this kind of status. Now before we enter the month of Ramadan, my brothers and sisters in Islam. The third way in how we're going to prepare for this blessed month of Ramadan is through a Dwyer, Allah He is so important in preparing for this blessed month. Now you need to use your hours wisely that you have

00:37:05--> 00:37:49

before I'm about to make dua to Allah so we can self the companions love their loved one whom they would make dua to Allah six months before Ramadan, that Allah allow them to reach Ramadan. This is how they used to use a diet to prepare for Milan six months before. I know we were speaking now, before I move on a lot of social figures. Whoever you know, this is very important because whoever has a great concern for something makes plenty of money when you're sick. How much do you make when a relative of yours is sick? How much do you make, don't even request and beg others to make up for you. Please please please make up for my mother she's sick, please make blog for my children.

00:37:49--> 00:37:59

They're sick, please make up for this and that they're sick. Please make bio for me I'm going through a very difficult depressed moment now in my life, please. When we're concerned about something, we make a lot of glare.

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

So if you follow my Bond was a great concern for us. We're going to have the same attitude and continuously make non stop until last sosial except our dryer glow.

00:38:14--> 00:38:56

And seek the times in where the dryer is accepted. Seek the times in which is accepted after an event between an event or a power in the last third of the night and so on. My brothers and sisters in Islam you need to understand when you make dua to Allah azza wa jal asking him to allow you to reach Ramadan, add to this as well. Ask him that he gives you the ability that you worship him during this month. Say Allah give me the ability and the strength that I'm able to fast the days of this month, and I'm able to prove the Knights of this month and give me the ability and the strength that I catch the little cuddle and remain awake the entire night.

00:38:57--> 00:39:39

in obedience and in worship to us powder Horta, Allah, Allah social, he says, Now asaba caminhar 17 has entered in feminine law you need to realize you cannot worship Allah on your own. You cannot. You must ask Allah azza wa jal to give you the strength and ability to worship Him. Otherwise you cannot worship Allah alone. Allah says now Saba can mean Hasina any good deed you do for me in Allah, it was a law that gave you permission to do it. And it was him who gave you the strength and the ability to do it. Alonso is really serious about the believers. When they have entered the paradise you know what the believers see. They see what Harlan hamdulillah he loved he had an early

00:39:39--> 00:39:53

hair that woman couldn't nearly 30 and older and her dad Allah, they would say at humble love or praise belongs to Allah, that he guided us to this to this paradise. And then they will see had it not been for Allah.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

Had it not been for a lost guidance, we would have never, ever been guided

00:40:00--> 00:40:45

To this paradise when I couldn't Elena Daddy will have never been guided. If it wasn't for a lot of guidance for us a lot like what everything we do have good deeds is because Allah gave us the ability and permission. You know now, as I'm preaching to, as I'm preaching to you, this is only my mother's permission. And then sort of Alonzo Hill he says, what are your Illa ma e b if ni Allah describe the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said you preach and you teach people deal with Islam you teach them the religion of Allah, believe me, by the permission of Allah. Otherwise, if you relied on yourself, you will not be able to do anything at all. realize and understand how

00:40:45--> 00:41:26

important a Dwyer is in preparing for them avant, you must ask Allah sosial to give you the ability and the strength that you worship him you'll get the houses of law you think the people that enter the massage it into on their own accord and they pray because they desire to pray and they have the ability on their own to pray. Allah azza wa jal, he says in the poor and feeble youth in avviene Allah and too far we've got off he has small. When Allah describes the massager, he said, alvine Allah, Allah gave permission that people get the strength and come inside this Masjid and begin to remember Allah and prayer salah and do the good deeds that Allah subhanahu wa dyana gives them the

00:41:26--> 00:42:10

ability to do so. To make this to look at inshallah Telfair to have the most central area in Salton Fatiha year Can I do a year can Stein you say you're alone You alone we worship and You alone we seek your help. The first part of the year cannot what is the purpose of life? The purpose of life is you alone we worship of how are you going to worship Him? The second part of the A is the means in how you're going to worship Him. And the means is this time, we're going to achieve worshiping you through our means and that is seeking your help understanding. And this is why in the visa Mullah while he was in love with teachers companions, that after every solid meatless diet, Allahu

00:42:11--> 00:42:33

Allah Vic Rico shoukry co host a better to Allah help me, support me. Give me the ability and the strength and the energy and the power that I remember you. And thank you, and perfect my worship for you. You're asking a mod to give you the ability to do so. When the riesel Allahu alayhi wa sallam would ask Allah, Allah, Allah,

00:42:35--> 00:43:11

Allah, Allah I asked you that you give me the ability to do the good. If a medicine mamajuana Us and Them could do the good on his own without Allah's help, why didn't he just do the good? Why would you ask Allah because even he sallallahu alayhi wasallam recognizes that you can never ever do good, unless Allah azza wa jal gives you the ability to do so. Now, so preparing for Ramadan make dua, especially saying our Lord, give me the ability that I worship you I need the word is I nee

00:43:12--> 00:43:57

and one of the greatest Vicar to see and continuously repeat that alludes to Allah azza wa jal, his help for you is how we know Allah, what the 11 layer continuously say there how knowing what the 11 love, which means there how there is no power, there is no energy, there is no ability whatsoever. Now how when, and there's no power, there's no strength, there's no energy leveler, except through a loss solution, you will get your energy and your strength and your powerful the worship through Allah, not through any other means. Only through Allah subhanho wa Taala. So carry on saying there hold our quwata illa vilella However, quwata, Illa and Bismillah. You're going to see the effect of

00:43:57--> 00:43:59

this during this plus of the month of Ramadan.

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

My brothers and sisters in Islam. The fourth way in how we're going to prepare for this blessed month of Ramadan is by learning about its virtues and its rewards. You know, when you know the virtue and reward of a worship, you are more excited and ready to engage with this wash. Now give you an example. If a father was to say to his children, whoever cuts the grass, I give them $1,000. Now what happens, the children are excited, and they're ready to cut the grass because they know the reward. When you know the reward of something, you're much more excited and eager to embrace and engage in that thing. So it's very important that we excite ourself and motivate ourselves for this

00:44:46--> 00:45:00

mustard month of Ramadan by learning something about its virtues and reward and I just want to share with you a hadith Almighty my brothers and sisters in Islam, the fasting of Ramadan is the most virtuous fasting can

00:45:00--> 00:45:50

compared to all the other fast things of the end, you know, during the What do we fast? The Nine days of Asia, six days of chawan, three days of every month, Monday and Thursday, the month of Muharram the month of chabanne, this is also not too fast. But Ramadan is the best fasting compared to all the fasting of the Why? Because the fasting of Ramadan is worship, it's obligatory and Allah subhanho wa Taala said as in an Hadith and could see WOMAD acaba de la Abdi Vichy, I have a minimum of dolla dolla money that the most beloved thing with which my servant draws nearer to me, is what I have made obligatory upon him, the heartbeat means that you know, we are all seeking a loss

00:45:50--> 00:46:04

closeness. Everyone wants to be neat and close to a loss social. And Allah is saying, the best thing that you can do that will bring you closer and neat to me is that you commit yourself to the obligations

00:46:05--> 00:46:28

and fasting Ramadan is an obligation like about so you need to focus and pay attention to this. The virtue and the merit and the reward of Ramadan Allah Allah, it's unknown. Firstly, through that, Habib I shared with you one of its virtues is that it definitely brings you closer and nearer to Allah sosial because you're fulfilling an obligation for 30 days.

00:46:29--> 00:46:47

Another Hadith I share with you about the virtue watch this, let me some Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says, couldn't do Amma ligny, Adam, a wife, every single deed that the son of Adam does, its reward is multiplied, and has senate washable and 30 her Elizabeth to birth for every one good deed.

00:46:48--> 00:47:23

Alonzo Hill multiplies at a minimum of 10 times minimum minimum, any good did you do? Look, this is the generosity of Allah any good deed you do? Allah, a minimum he multiplies it 10 times. And if you do 100 he doesn't give you 100 minimum, he'll multiply it 10 times a lot, the generosity of a lot in our life. And it could be multiplied up to 700 times depending on your sincerity. And depending on your, on your worship itself, how syncios how perfect it was, how much for sure it was in this worship and so on.

00:47:24--> 00:48:13

All Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala said in law soem, except the good deed of fasting, except fasting, fasting, so multiply 10 times it's not multiplying 700 times you see all the other good deeds, the minimum they multiply 10 the maximum they're multiplied is 700. Sometimes it could be multiplied more than that, for whoever law social rules according to the sincerity except fasting. Fasting is not multiplied by 10. No by 100 times, nor by 700. It's not even multiplied by 1000 times Allahu Allah in the song, Allah Harlem, the angels do not record the deed of fasting in your account. They don't know what the good deed for it is. They don't write it. They don't record it.

00:48:13--> 00:48:19

They don't know what it is. Allah azza wa jal, he said, For him, the holy fasting is for me.

00:48:21--> 00:49:07

Well, I know Zb, and I will give it reward, I will give it reward. This Anna iccb implies that the reward is so huge that Allah said it's upon me, leave it upon me. And you know, when a king says, and he let's say you into a king, and you had a case, you had a need. The King King would say if he said to you, don't worry, we'll look after you. We will look after you and take care of you. Nothing to worry about what does that mean? Does it mean that the king is going to give you $100 or $200 and you look after yourself, it means the king is going to give you a massive giving that would look after you for your entire life. Managing the King of all kings is seeing that the reward of fasting

00:49:07--> 00:49:55

is upon me and I will reward for it Allah Come on. And why is the reward of fasting so huge, because for in the holy because it's sincerely done for Allah sake. No one knows about it as opposed to all the other worships. When you pray people can see your pre you give Zakat or silver called maybe people know that you do Hajj people can see you do people can see it. But fasting, no one knows about it. It's only between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is why it has a great reward. It is pure sincerity. They cannot be any showing off in fasting. It's pure sincerity. Lonzo Hill he says yeah, the OSHA what the what the human actually. He gives up his desire and food meaning he

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

gives up the luxuries and enjoyment of this life. Minaj Lee

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

For my sake law for a commodity you need to live with this word during Ramadan. During the days of llama Allah wa live with the word of Ashley, for my sake, feel that you're doing something for the sake of Allah.

00:50:13--> 00:50:58

And you know what this means. It means that a person has preferred the obedience of Allah, over the obedience of himself. You you your enough's wants to eat and drink, it wants it. And Allah wants you to give that up. So you say to yourself, I'm going to prefer what Allah loves, over what I love, like what and this is why the reward of fasting was such a huge reward that we don't know what it is. And fasting, it means that you've detached yourself from the luxuries and enjoyments of this life, food, drink and sexual relations. These are the luxuries and enjoyments of this life. During the day when you give that up, you've detached yourself from the luxuries of this life. Meaning

00:50:58--> 00:51:45

Where are you now you're attached to a large social, you are closer to Allah and to the reward of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then in the vsam, Allahu Allahu wa sallam said in that Hadith, your saw me for her and for happened in the few, three or four happened. And then of course, a B, and the first thing person has two moments of joy. One of them is a physical enjoyment, and that is at the time of the fall, now that you're able to indulge in food and drink and sexual relations, after having given that up an entire day. That's a moment of joy, a barrage of wahala he said, that the joy, the joy at breaking your fast only happens for the one who breaks his fast upon that which is Hillel. And the

00:51:45--> 00:52:35

one who breaks is fast upon how long like a cigarette or a drug or eating something Haram is deprived from the joy that happens to a fasting person at the time he breaks his fast. And the second moment of joy is a spiritual joy. And that is the time you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala he'll be a joy for the believers when they meet Allah so vision. Why? Firstly, because they're meeting along the meeting, they create a lot record. Imagine that moment. Everything you did in life, of worship, of fasting of salad, hash, every word you said every action you did, you tried to please Allah. So now you're finally going to meet the one who you did all your deeds for the sake of and

00:52:35--> 00:53:13

secondly, the spiritual enjoyment. When we meet Allah Zoysia would be because of seeing the huge amount of reward that allows origin has prepared for the person that fasting, you know, like, it's like a day of graduation. You know, the students, when they graduate, they're excited and they're happy, to get their certificates and finally graduate and so on. So the believers, that's a moment of joy for them when they meet Allah Zoysia. Because now we cannot wait to see what Allah has prepared for us of this huge reward of fasting that we never knew about and just about to be uncovered before us on the Day of Judgment, Allahu Akbar. And from this hadith we learn that fasting

00:53:13--> 00:53:26

prepares us for the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala. It prepares us for the meeting in Novi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying that the fasting person has a moment of joy when he meets a law.

00:53:27--> 00:54:17

Even we learn that fasting prepares us for the meeting with Allah, just like a last social prepared Musa alayhis salam, before most met Allah on the Mount of a poor, he commanded him to fast 40 days a night 40 days and 40 nights wine so that he can prepare himself to meet Allah azza wa jal on jubilo board and he met Allah. No doubt fasting prepares us for the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why? Because fasting, cleans the heart. It's a form of repentance. It scrubs the heart, it polishes, it makes the heart crystal clean. That's what fasting does. And before you meet Allah sosial You must have a polished crystal had a baby's heart, a baby's heart you need to have, you need to come

00:54:17--> 00:54:41

back to a long session with a heart in the same heart that he gave you when you were first born. See that innocent young heart that came out when it came out from its mother doesn't know any transgression, doesn't know any sin. It doesn't know any heedlessness. It only knows a Thorkil. The baby's heart only knows the word coolala law solely relying upon laws social and there you go they don't How's it look nothing else.

00:54:43--> 00:55:00

For that, that's the kind of heart you need to go back to to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that can be achieved by fasting because fasting washes the heart it washes it, it cleanses it. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says the one who fasts three days of every month, it cleans his heart from the evil

00:55:00--> 00:55:19

treats. Imagine fasting 30 days of obligatory fasting of Ramadan. What's it going to do to the heart? No, not at all to polish the heart becomes crystal clean, not workable. So how the law for the reward of fasting is scraped and the virtue and merit of it is huge. I share with you one last tip from this point.

00:55:21--> 00:55:25

This is beautiful, any at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:55:26--> 00:56:08

There was a guest he was hungry. He was a poor guest he came to Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wasallam wanting some food, so Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said these companions, who will entertain this guest of mine, and feed him tonight. So one of the companions said yes, well, Allah, I will take him in. I'll invite him to my house and and feed him. So that companion rush to his house and went to his wife and sit there. Let's prepare our meal that was meant for us. Let's prepare for our guests for the guest of all Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this man entered the house. And they turned off all the lights, and these two companions, him and his wife, they made it as though

00:56:08--> 00:56:48

they are eating, you know, they acted out as if they were eating, and they allow, and they made this food all for the guest. They let him eat over food, and they didn't eat anything. So they went hungry for one night. No one knew about it. The next day, when they woke up in the beast on the law while he was ill and went to that companion. And he said to them, he said to him, to him and his wife, a dodgy below home in sunny a coma Bilbao effect como la la, la Aqua Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, Allah is amazed at how both of you treated your guests last night law a kebab.

00:56:50--> 00:57:22

They gave up their food and drink they gave it up for the sake of the guest. And Allah loved what they did. So imagine the love Allah Zoysia has for the one who leaves food and drink for the sake of a love for 30 days seeking the most pleasure them to they gave up food and drink for the sake of their guests. And Allah loves what they did. Imagine now giving up eating and drinking for the sake of a law for 30 days.

00:57:24--> 00:57:37

With such a person how much is he loved by Allah sarjan especially when he's doing it as a worship seeking a loss reward and being sincere in what he's doing more work well, my brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:57:39--> 00:57:58

The fifth way of how we're going to prepare for this blessed month of Ramadan is to understand how to fast we need to know how to fast since the main pillar of Ramadan is fasting, the obligation of Ramadan is fasting. Therefore, you must learn how to fast correctly.

00:57:59--> 00:58:29

And first and foremost, let me see that you should understand Firstly, what is the purpose of fasting? What's the purpose of fasting? What's the purpose of the fasting of the stomach when you avoid food and drink in sexual relations? What's the purpose of that? The purpose of that is to nurture within us a duck where it's to nurture within us the fear of Allah azza wa jal by keeping away from sins. That's the purpose of fasting avoiding food, drink and sexual activity and the purpose

00:58:30--> 00:59:17

by you. So if that's the purpose of fasting, we must realize that fasting is two paths, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us and concerning this matter of nuclear Mohammed Allah He said, a sober was so majority hard in FM, or salmone. But Manish shalabi, a buyer that fasting is of two types, the fasting of the stomach from food and drink, and the fasting of the limbs from sin and transgression was set up for hammer home Allah they said the easiest fasting, the most easiest fasting is refraining from food and drink. The real fasting is abstaining from all forms of sin and transgression. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us, in addition to giving up food and

00:59:17--> 00:59:31

drink and sexual relation, he also said that we need to give up three other things. He submitted them yada polar zoo. Well, I'm gonna be while john Felisa de la hija tone Ania bar by Hon wash Allahu la

00:59:32--> 00:59:38

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Whoever does not give up false speech,

00:59:39--> 00:59:59

false speech, that's number one. Yanni we need to fast. This is the fast thing of the tongue from false speech, swearing, telling lies, backbiting, slander, gossip, cursing all of that. All of this is impermissible when you fast what's permissible after that, but this is a form

01:00:00--> 01:00:48

Fasting, especially during the day, fasting of the tongue, while I'm ellaby. And whoever doesn't give up the evil deeds, evil beats, would mean the deeds of the eye and what it sees of harm. So the eyes must fast the deeds of the he and what he is of how long the ease must fast. And the tongue, as we said, the hands, the feet, all of this, you must give up over how long so it's not only giving up food, drink and sexual relations, you must give up the sins of the eye of the E of the tongue of the hand of the feet, don't walk to something, how long don't touch something, how long, don't see something, how long don't listen to something how long, you need to feel a duck, why Abramova a taco

01:00:48--> 01:01:25

must flow in your blood in your veins. You need to feel it in every inch of your body. And the third thing you need to give up in Ramadan. And Jen as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and Jen, and Jen means two things. Number one, it means ignorance. And ignorance means when you do not implement knowledge, right, so you know, it's fun to pray, but you decide not to pray. That's Jen, you need to give that up in Ramadan. And Jan also is the foolish arrogant character. When you oppress others and so on. You need to give that up as well. You need to be patient during this month.

01:01:27--> 01:02:04

If someone wants to argue with you, or swear at you or insult you, don't raise your voice at them. Don't fight with anyone. Under reasonable law, I like your salami says Laos hub. Don't fight with anyone, Don't raise your voice at anyone. Rather, if someone is insulting you, or wants to fight with you, or raises his voice that you say to him in your soul, in your saw him twice, I am fasting, I am fasting, meaning I'm fasting. I'm fasting. So I cannot respond back to you with insults and curse and find you and argue with you. I cannot do that, because I'm fasting, and then walk away.

01:02:05--> 01:02:53

That way you keep your passing fasting perfectly, keep it clean, and you keep it pure. And if you don't give these up, if you don't give these impermissible matters up, then there's no benefit in your fasting. My brothers and sisters in Islam, alongside giving up food, drink and sexual relation, you must must give up, you must give up the as we said, the full speech the evil words, and you must give up the sins of the limbs, and you must give up ignorance. If you know something Allah commanded in Islam, that is worship, you must do it otherwise, that ignorance and you must give up oppressing the people raising your voice at them and arguing with them. You must give that up alongside giving

01:02:53--> 01:03:13

up food, drink and sexual relations. The one who doesn't do that won't benefit from his fasting. Because he's fasting is not teaching and Doppler. The entire purpose of fasting was to teach you taqwa. So if you're running wild during the day, in the night with your tongue, and with your eyes and with your ears, you didn't benefit any duct work.

01:03:14--> 01:03:42

As a result, you will lose a lot of reward a lot of reward you will lose. You see fasting is like the prayer. And what did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say about the prayer he says in nodular lay on solid for one year cootie Bella who leverageable sala de to serve her from nuha subrosa to our homes to our furnace where and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that after a person leaves you solid,

01:03:43--> 01:04:30

he might have earned a 10th of the reward. To pray he earned a 10th of the reward, or maybe earned a ninth of the reward, or an eighth or a seven or a sixth of the reward, or a fifth or a fourth or a third or a half. Now, it depends on the Hirshhorn, the more who sure you have the more reward reward the game from a select. The less sure you have, the less reward you get. Fasting is exactly the same. For more for sure you have in your fasting, the more you give up the how long the bigger your reward is in fasting. It's exactly like this. It's exactly the same as a salad into the careful of this when the B cell Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says

01:04:31--> 01:05:00

obasa also even Lisa who means to me he loves you. Or Baka me Lisa homonuclear mihaela Sol, let me some Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says there are people who fast and they get nothing from their fasting except hunger and thirst, no reward anything, just just thirst. That's all he got out of his fasting. And there are people who pray and get nothing from their prayer. But sleepiness and tiredness, Kenny, no reward. You only got hunger. You will a day.

01:05:00--> 01:05:27

You hungry, thirsty, and sleepless and tired, and you got no reward, Allahu Akbar. Or be very careful when you fast, fast correctly, the fasting of the limbs is extremely important. Because when you give up food and drink and sexual relations, that is training you to keep away from all harm to keep away from the sins of the eye and the E and the tongue in the hands and so on. laquan by my brothers and sisters in Islam,

01:05:29--> 01:05:57

people No You see, the thing is they just focus on avoiding food, drink and sexual relations that's wrong. Don't only focus on that focus on a duck where the first thing of the limbs inshallah, so you can earn the greatest and the maximum reward of Ramadan, my brothers and sisters in Islam. The sixth way in how we prepare for Ramadan is by realizing that Ramadan is only a few days, we need to remind ourselves that Ramadan is only a few days

01:05:58--> 01:06:23

a lot of social in Nepal and he says a year Mamadou that a few days, a few days Then he said to a chef Ramadan and these few days. In total, they make a month nice psychology in this a few days. The word a Yama model that when Allah describes Ramadan, he said a few days. What does that imply? psychologically, it creates a sense of urgency and panic within us.

01:06:24--> 01:06:29

Keep telling yourself a few days, just a few days, just a few days, don't waste them. They'll quickly go

01:06:30--> 01:06:42

a few days. And it's simple. It's easy to fast. We start all of a sudden, it's the 10th day of Ramadan. All of a sudden we're in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, all of a sudden it's read so quick.

01:06:44--> 01:07:30

So don't be lazy a yurman ma do that if you keep reminding yourself that mobile is a few days, then you should not be lazy push yourself the doors of the paradise are open. Allah is freeing people from the Hellfire every day and every night. There are 60 opportunities to be freed. Hurry up and push yourself a few days and the sale is all over the offer is all over for a Milan spend the night with the plan, select Vicar, a DA give charity read the plan. Avoid the harm during the day during the night. Ask a more column to Allah is still far do what he can push yourself. push it to the limit this is a few days. And then after a mobile you can rest a little bit but under my bomb do

01:07:30--> 01:07:45

Don't Don't be lazy. That's it we cannot afford to be heedless and neglect the golden opportunities in this month and the gifts that Allah Sohail is giving and handing up every single moment of this day. And every single moment of this month.

01:07:47--> 01:08:34

Show Alonzo hill that you really appreciate that he gave your life to live and experience yet another Ramadan show show a more appreciation showing that you really appreciate or more. Thank you Allah that you allowed me to live Ramadan. Can Lord show us Where's your thanks. Where's your gratitude? Show us? What the How do you think Allah for the opportunity for Milan, sit down lazy on your couch with the food in your hand all day and all night. flicking through videos, listening to music, going from reel to reel to reel and watching whatever it is, heck, this is how you appreciate the demo of a loss aversion that he allow you to live to experience yet another mobile. This is how

01:08:34--> 01:09:14

you're going to appreciate the NEMA. This is how you're going to think a lawful the doors of the paradise being open. And the doors of the Hellfire being closed and the devils being chained. You're going to say Alhamdulillah hola you did this now. There's time for my phone now. It's time for social media now. It's time to follow people. And what shall how long listen down how long just flicked from one screen to another. And in halfway in between listen to an A and then move on to another girl dancing in them. This is an embarrassment. This is an embarrassment. shut down your social media, all of it. Except what's beneficial except for it's beneficial. Stay connected with

01:09:14--> 01:09:59

what's beneficial. Stay connected in social media with what is going to keep you motivated and inspired to worship Allah social during this month. That's it. Otherwise throw it out. Throw it out. It's not worth it will lie he my brothers and sisters one law he walks in will be let it's not worth it. It is not worth it. How many people have jumped on this bandwagon of social media. How many people have been destroyed by the social media? Every two three days. We find Muslim woman becoming influences. We finding people they're just on there for the money and just on there to show themselves and how they look and how they appeal to the world. What is this? It's become a culture.

01:09:59--> 01:09:59

It's become a trend.

01:10:01--> 01:10:07

Yanni so Pamela Young, beautiful Muslim female sisters

01:10:08--> 01:10:55

jumping on this rubbish taken by society and by the norms of society and by the pressure of society. So Pamela, Pamela, the same Muslim sister, same Muslim system, before being an influencer on on social media on Instagram before that, she doesn't wear a hijab. She says, well, it's difficult to wear the hijab. I don't find the energy, when she becomes an influencer for a company that is marketing and herb and so on martial law, all of a sudden, she has a job now, all of a sudden, she's wearing hijab, and she's promoting this floored, destroyed, ruined ID of what modesty is, and what his job is. So how long we fought before you came into social media

01:10:57--> 01:11:40

was difficult. But now because it makes you famous, it brings your likes, it makes the world look at you, it gives you some attention in the world. It makes you money. All of a sudden now exposure becomes easy to wear. So Pamela, Yanni, my brothers and sisters in Islam, be careful, be careful. If I'm one lucky, I'm not here to attack anyone, if that's your case, and that's you. Fear Allah so vision and realize that you have an opportunity before you now the blizzard month of Allah mobile, you have a golden opportunity before you and what has happened off the pass, no go no problems as long as you're still alive, and your soul is still inside of you. And hamdulillah give it all up for

01:11:40--> 01:12:24

the sake of Allah with one click of a button, delete the entire account. Delete this entire understanding from your entire system and entire life. Turn to Allah so Allah I have wronged myself in these the past Allah, I'm at your doorstep now begging for your mercy begging for your forgiveness. Our Lord forgive my sins, forgive my shortcomings. Allah opened the doors of your mercy and paradise for me, oximeter biller, the woman who does that the man who does that one law he Allah subhanahu wa tada will open the door for them. Well, lucky, Allah sosial would open the door for them. And he will make the worship easy for them. And he will give them a sweetness of this worship.

01:12:24--> 01:13:06

They have never experienced ever in their life. We speaking about Allah, the Most Merciful. He is the one that will judge you on the Day of Judgment run through His mercy. Now before it's too late. I can only advise I can only warn I'm not going to follow every influencer, you know, and hit on every influencer and hidden of every single person that's understood the concept of modesty and Asia brung and come and shame them and expose them here. I don't want to do that and then do that. And it's not from a Muslim to do that at all, at all. It's not from our character to do that. But we must remind, we have to remind, because Allah sojourn says with that guilt for him, the vicar often

01:13:06--> 01:13:41

found meaning for you, mighty sister, that have fallen into a disease like this. You must recognize and realize you're in a disease, you're in a sickness, you're in a sin. Don't let anyone else fool you. And tell you Oh, you're so beautiful. You look really really beautiful with this shirt. And with this makeup, and with these clothes, and this with with this modesty Nananana This is all rubbish. None of this is modesty. None of it is modesty. And hijab has a perfect meaning. And modesty has a meaning in Islam.

01:13:42--> 01:14:22

Forgive all the songs now in Ramadan, give it all up and turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and I'm just reminding I am just reminding, and we ask Allah azza wa jal for the sisters and he there, we ask Allah azza wa jal to guide them. And this alongside my words, the advice is for the men as well, that have also chosen to go and wear tights and shorts above their knees, and go inform the beauty in society as well and become influencers as well for major companies and wearing brands and making money and so on that the talk is also for them as well. For you people, my brothers and sisters, both of you give all this up, throw it all out, throw it all out. We're lucky this disease only

01:14:22--> 01:14:59

began when you had social media. When you didn't have an account none of this happened when you had an account. And you keep flicking through these reels and through these videos and stories are looking at people and bit by bit bit by bit as Siobhan pushed you into this entire industry and he became a so called influencer Michelle law for the world. For my brothers and sisters in Islam. We're not here to insult anyone to mock anyone. We are all we are all sick, we're all weak. We are all in need of loss, forgiveness. We're all in need of repentance. We are all in need of loss, socials, mercy. We need it. We need it and the opportunity is there before so we're encouraging

01:14:59--> 01:14:59

waiting

01:15:00--> 01:15:09

Each Other don't understand my messy drunk. We are encouraging each other, to run to the mercy and to the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. My brothers and sisters in Islam

01:15:10--> 01:15:52

we were going to prepare for this month this is the seventh week is we're going to enter thinking good of Allah social only biller thing could have allowed social as you enter this month, don't enter with a negative dad fought an attitude of law, that he won't forgive me and he won't bestow His mercy upon me. Enter this month with you with humility, with humbleness, with a heart filled with the love of Allah and the certainty that allows sosial will forgive you and forgive you and free you from the hellfire. All Allah and I'm the one nap DB Allah so shall he says, I am to my sleeve as he thinks of me. In other words, Allah azza wa jal is able to treat you in the same manner

01:15:52--> 01:16:01

you think he's going to deal with you. If you think Allah will bestow His mercy upon you. And that's your fault. And Allah, Allah will do that a lot like

01:16:02--> 01:16:48

think good of Allah as we enter this month, think good that he will forgive you be certain and hope from Allah Sojin that will you will come out of Ramadan as a newborn, have high hope in Alonzo Hill, Allah He it is not impossible for a lot Zoysia to grant you what you want. The Magician's are thrown when they saw the truth. Allah forgave all their mischeif all their sins, all their transgression over a coffin and ship with one says that they made what kind of forgiveness laws so he shall grant those who worship him for 30 days hoping for his mercy and for his forgiveness. Don't allow the SharePoint to tell you otherwise. My brothers and sisters in Islam Ramadan itself is a dauber

01:16:48--> 01:17:29

fasting in and of itself is a Toba just be alive and bring this intention in your heart. You know, Stober, Adam and he said on when he ate from the tree, we ended up on Earth, we only ended up on earth because of food. So now to repent from the sin we need to give up the food. So Ramadan is given to us as a means of tober in where we give up the food and the drink, remembering that it is food that got us onto this worldly life. So fasting is a Toba in and of itself, and finally my brothers and sisters in Islam and forgive me for taking too long and too much of your time. But I end with this last way to prepare for this Blissett month and there are many ways but what I can

01:17:29--> 01:18:13

share with you now is to learn the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during fasting, the sooner What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to do have sooner voluntary acts during this month. So the beautiful tsunami of moon sighting, this is the first sooner we need to observe the moon sighting. Wait, wait tonight, until there are reports reports of a confirmed moon sighting. If there is any reports of a confirmed moon sighting, whether locally or regionally or globally, so long as there's a verified source that brings us the news of the moon being cited. Then go ahead and fast but if Neela because little Sol Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said so more

01:18:13--> 01:18:57

little at he will after all, do it fast based on the sighting of the moon and break your fast based on the sighting of the moon. And what is meant in this Hadeeth is any sighting of the moon, whether it's local, regional in your area, or whether it's global. And why do we say so? Even though there are other opinions that exists that mentioned that the sighting should be local or regional doesn't matter. But what proves this opinion that I mentioning to you a lot what makes it strong? Is that also a loss on the lawn while he was a limb before he passed away. The entire Arab peninsula had embraced Islam in Makkah will Medina Yemen and on the sides in the left and the right, all of that

01:18:57--> 01:19:45

entire Arabian peninsula had accepted Islam and the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Knowing that Ramadan is a serious and a big event of the year and it comes every he didn't tell anyone that you need to fast based on the local siding, or based on a regional siding. And since this is an important serious matter, we would have expected that he clarified however since he said nothing and he left that at SU molar at first at the sighting of the moon, then that means any confirmed sighting Bismillah it is correct. To start you're fast and don't cause issues and problems in your community. Keep far away from infidel, you for yourself. If your community is fasting local, if your

01:19:45--> 01:20:00

community is fasting local and you happen to reach or news reaches you that the moon has been cited globally, then fast secretly without anyone knowing that if you follow that up

01:20:00--> 01:20:42

of global moves citing fast secretly, and those who are fasting according to local moon citing, they will fast will hamdulillah no one argues with each other, and no one causes friction and tension between each other. While humbling if you want to fast according to the sighting of the moon, and lead at night, you receive a confirmed global sighting and you want to fast Bismillah intent and fast if your community is fasting local, and they did not see the moon tonight, and so they're fasting A day after don't inform them Don't say anything, don't run around and say well, we saw the moon and it was confirmed and guaranteed and we should fast dude cause this fitline this troll my

01:20:42--> 01:21:24

brothers and sisters in Islam fast secretly and lead others fast and lead others fast locally on humbler Yoni we ask a lot of social to accept our worship. So that's one soon another sooner well if BOD and inshallah Allah during Ramadan I will share with you the Sunnah of support when it's supposed to be done, when it's supposed to be done, how it's done, what's the best so hold to have the dua alongside with that if there is any What are we supposed to set the time and if far what is the tsunami of power learn all of these things are done behind the enam when you pray that always behind the Imam and then you leave after the Imam leaves, then you will get endgame the reward as

01:21:24--> 01:21:39

though you prayed the entire night Allah like about charity, which is a tsunami, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Ramadan, reading local and very important, remembering the poor and the orphans in the needy in blah, blah, blah and very important as one of the main objectives of Ramadan.

01:21:41--> 01:22:25

That as you starve during the day you're supposed to remember the less fortunate and the poor and the needy and that should break your heart and and motivate you and inspire you to feed them every single day every single day feed them and the subaqua in Ramadan is very very very rewarding because most likely that solar power would end up in the hands of a pole who most likely will break his fast upon it. And if he does so, the new earn the reward of that fasting person such as Louis faster two days in one day, as if you broke the fast of one person. If you break the fast of 300 people you own the reward of fasting 300 days Allah hi god this is a great tool marvelous all Allah sallallahu

01:22:25--> 01:22:56

alayhi wa sallam during Ramadan and when you fast it in inspires you and motivates you even more to give some thought to the needy and the poor and to feed them will la Harlem jazz Oh como la jolla, la? We ask Allah subhanahu wa ala to allow us to reach Ramadan, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us the ability and the strength in the energy that we worship him a lot in our CRM if you're on mobile or in altium. If you're on mobile and a lot of them are in LA they go shoukry go house

01:22:57--> 01:23:31

or Bayonetta cobalamin in Nicaragua Samir and Eileen are to Ballina in the world Rahim We ask Allah azza wa jal to forgive our sins to forgive our shortcomings. We asked him subhanho wa Taala, to accept from us automobil to deliver us to Ramadan safely, and to accept all our deeds that we do in Ramadan and to give us the ability and the strength that we worship him during Ramadan, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to free our next from the fire and the next of our parents, and our generations and our forefathers and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:23:32--> 01:24:12

to guide our children and to free them from the fire. And we ask him Subhanahu wa Allah, that he does not deprive us of the good in this life and the good in the afterlife. And we ask him Subhana Allah, that He grant us that we see him on the Day of Judgment, because the fasting person, as we said, has two joys. And one of the joys is when he sees Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we ask a lot of social that he does not deprive us of this gift of this blessing in the holy umbilical cord array or some of the law or some of the more radical and maybe you know Mohammed, he also be as marine as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
