Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah He was sabe here's mine, my brothers and sisters in Islam. The very common question after Ramadan is how do we remain committed and steadfast upon the worship of Allah azza wa jal after Ramadan. But you know, the reality is that this wasn't a question that Sahaba the Companions would ask Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it just wasn't a question because they knew that the purpose in life was to worship Allah until death. The Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu knew two things as we enter Sure, well, there were two things that they would know. Listen to this, number one, they would know that steadfastness and firmness upon

00:00:40--> 00:01:19

the worship of Allah is a way of life. There was a man who came to the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said to him, Kali hold and fill Islam let us and one who had an Iraq he said, O Messenger of Allah, can you teach me and tell me something about Islam? That I'm not able to ask anyone else but you so whenever he salAllahu alayhi wa sallam answered him, and he said to him, pull em and to be left full. Stop him. Look how short the answer was. He said to him say that I have believed in Allah, I have faith in Allah. And then after this is stuck in stand upright, meaning adhere to the commands and the laws of Allah subhanahu wa taala until death, Allah azza wa jal he

00:01:19--> 00:02:03

commanded the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in solitude, for stepping command, omit that stand upright and be firm upon the worship of Allah azza wa jal, as you have been commanded, for this is something that also have a new that was the first thing, that steadfastness upon the worship of Allah does not end with the end of Ramadan. It continues until the day a person dies. And the second piece of information they knew, and this is very important, that towards the end of the Islamic II, that is a season of worship. We have six, seven months, it's a season of worship. It begins with Rajab, and worship is the first of the sacred months. And worship is a month in which a Sahaba like

00:02:03--> 00:02:42

abnormal Radi Allahu Anhu would perform an unbeliever it's a month of camera and so on. This worship in this It's also referred to as the month of planting the seeds. You plant the seeds in the month of Rajab. Then after this, the month of Shaban comes, this is where you're watering your seeds. And then in Ramadan, you harvest and Shaban was a month of fasting a month of reading the Quran, a month of preparation for Ramadan, whatever you're going to do. In Ramadan of worship, you do it in Shabbat, and then the huge month of worship Ramadan comes will Quran and fasting whatever we do with the care will a little further than Ramadan finishes. Nothing finished yet the season of worship is

00:02:42--> 00:03:25

still with us. Then Cherwell comes and the first of its days is the day of an eighth and then we have six days to fast of your word. And then shall well is the start of the month of harsh Allah azza wa jal he says and has yo asuran Malou mat that Al hush is known months and the month of harsh shall well, though Canada which is the month after and the first 10 days of the Asia. So this is a month in which the RG those who are going to do harsh begin to prepare from now. They pack their bags up Allah azza wa jal he said in the higher Rosa the taqwa the best thing to pack up is a Taqwa. This is a month of Taqwa. This is a month in which you're supposed to charge up for an homage, and

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

then they'll care that comes. And then third Asia comes. And the first 10 days of the Asia are the best these on Earth are the best the most beloved these to Allah has version. These are these in which we are recommended to fast, right, and how it takes place in these days. And then we'll huddle on comms and muharram is a month in which it's the best month to fast after Ramadan. And there is your martial law in that month. So we are still in the season of worship. This is what the Sahaba knew. So there is no time to be lazy, and time to ease back. Yes, of course your worship after Ramadan is not going to be like Ramadan, however, keep what you did in Ramadan, at least something

00:04:10--> 00:04:30

And so on. You keep this going. And of course, being firm and steadfast upon your obligations we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive us.
