We are only a few days from Ramadan. A few hours a few days separates us from the blessed month of Ramadan.

00:00:09 --> 00:00:57

And of course one of the greatest that we make during this time is that Allah azza wa jal extend our lives until we reach Ramadan. And we ask Allah azza wa jal also that he bless our actions and Ramadan and except from us, because the point is not to reach Ramadan alone. Many people arrive to Ramadan. Disbelievers will witness Ramadan will Muslim and non Muslim and the hypocrite and everyone will witness Ramadan even animals will come to witness Ramadan. But the achievement of Ramadan is to take advantage of it and to be enabled by Allah azza wa jal to do righteous actions that have been pleased by him and that he Subhanahu wa Taala accept them and reward you for the match the real

00:00:57 --> 00:01:41

achievement in Ramadan. So as we ask Allah azza wa jal for the Brothers and Sisters in Islam I begin with a hadith and this was narrated by Ibn obey the law of the Allahu Anhu and I share this hadith so that we can really understand what does it mean that Allah Azza wa surely grants us another opportunity for another Ramadan in our life, while having to obey the law? How about the Allahu Anhu narrated, he said and knowledge you learn even believe Kadima, Allah rasool Allah, his son Allahu alayhi, wa salam or Cana Islam who measure me I am in the midst of Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that there were two men that came to the messenger salAllahu alayhi wasallam in El Medina, they were

00:01:41 --> 00:01:47

from a town Loon is believe it's close to El Medina. And they accepted Islam together at the same time.

00:01:48 --> 00:02:01

One of them had more effort in Deen as opposed to his friend. So what happened is that he joined one of the battles of the messenger sallallahu alayhi, wasallam. And eventually he was martyred.

00:02:02 --> 00:02:14

And his friend that accepted Islam at the same time, died a year later, one year after Shahid one year after his friend, and natural normal death on his bed.

00:02:16 --> 00:02:31

So I'll help him obey the law of the Allahu Anhu. One night he sees a dream. He sees that him and those two that exists except that Islam was standing outside the gate of the paradise. And it was opened and an angel came outside.

00:02:32 --> 00:02:47

And he welcomed the one who died a year later to enter the paradise first, he invited in to enter first. So he entered first. Then the angel invited the one that died as a Shaheed and the second

00:02:48 --> 00:02:56

then he came out the angel and he said, people have been Obaidullah, your time is not up, go back. And he woke up from his dream.

00:02:57 --> 00:03:01

And he was confused and he inherited this dream unto the people in an Medina

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

until the news reached the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Paul have been obey the law, the Allahu Anhu went to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there was in the presence of the messenger many companions. And he said, the apostle Allah, this is what I saw. So maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam saw the state of the companions, and that they were amazed and shocked.

00:03:27 --> 00:03:32

What are they amazed and shocked that? How can this person who died a natural death

00:03:33 --> 00:04:14

at his bed, enter the paradise first, before shade? When we all know the virtue of a shadow minister? How can this person enter the paradise first and yes, there is a big deal. You see, both of them did enter the paradise but there is a big deal as to who enters first and second and third. Even today, in school and in carnivals, and in sport. The first one is always given a unique price and a gift then second, third and fourth. So there's something special about the first. So in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam you said, Well, I mean, he Velika Taj baboon, what do you people surprised about? What do you amazed off? Then he said to them, our laser cut.

00:04:15 --> 00:04:43

Our Lady said he's in the midst of Allahu Allah, you know, suddenly he said our laser cut the Mecca husana. Didn't he live one year longer than his friend Shaheed they said yes. He said to them, what are the Rabona FASAB mo Salah Kava Kava didn t also have a chance to witness one extra Ramadan and fast and praise so many

00:04:44 --> 00:04:59

extra they said yes. So in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam said firmare being you know Homer, a baboon or being a sinner you want Maha Aqua. Know you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said the DIS

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

Since between both of them is the distance between the heavens and the earth.

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

What gave him that special virtue other than the fact that he lived one extra fee to witness one Ramadan and take advantage of it? And he prayed a lot more like out and a lot more prayers. Then his friend that had died as a marker that their one year extra in life, taking advantage of it, worshiping Allah azza wa jal in it was the reason for why he was given preference over shaheed. And so this narration and story teaches you and I, that Ramadan is a golden opportunity that Allah azza wa jal grants and gives each and every single person that Allah decrees for him to live and witness Ramadan. The question is, are you going to take this opportunity? And do the best you can so that it

00:05:58 --> 00:06:28

can make a difference between you and others? Or is it another Ramadan just like every other Ramadan in where you go in and you come out and nothing has changed in your life? This is what we need to discuss. And we also need to discuss how to prepare for this golden opportunity that Allah azza wa jal gives us and in support of this hadith, and what he teaches, in Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam taught us a standard rule. He said,

00:06:29 --> 00:06:38

how you will nurse mum Paula who were hustler Emmylou Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, The best of mankind.

00:06:39 --> 00:06:45

The best of them are those who live a long life, full of righteousness and goodness.

00:06:47 --> 00:07:29

So the aim and the point in life is not to reach a long life and die attain that 8090 is old people, Allah azza wa jal has already decreed for the man, but the achievement is what you feel this time with. And so every day is a new opportunity for you to enhance that relationship with Allah Azza vision by doing that, which Allah azza wa jal is pleased with. And that was the state of all the prophets and the messages. If you were to look at the case of Musa alayhis salam, when he rushed to Allah azza wa jal to the mountain in order for Allah azza wa jal to speak to him and to reveal to him a Torah the book

00:07:31 --> 00:07:52

Allah azza wa jal questions Musa, he says the mama Arjuna can call mica Musa, he says to him, why did you Russia Musa, why did he come to the mountain really early? And we left the people behind? You know what Musa alayhis salam said, listen to this, pay attention and learn something from it because it's teaching us something.

00:07:53 --> 00:08:09

He says why he to elago Billy turbo. He says, My Lord, I come rushing to so that I may own your pleasure. Please understand this. Musa alayhis salam is a prophet of Allah.

00:08:10 --> 00:08:18

Not a normal profit from only Nazmi. Men are also from the noble prophets choosing selected and they were five.

00:08:19 --> 00:08:25

Allah azza wa jal spoke to him. Allah is already pleased with him. Allah already loves him.

00:08:26 --> 00:08:38

But you see his attitude. He's rushing to Allah. And the only reason for rushing is little though, so that you can be pleased with me so that I may earn your pleasure.

00:08:39 --> 00:08:58

But yeah, Musa, Allah is already pleased with you. Should it you relax, kick back a little bit. You've already earned that station with Allah. What are you rushing for? You see, the believer doesn't depend on his righteous actions that he did in the past that's done that seal the finish we get that

00:08:59 --> 00:09:28

every single moment on earth, and every single minute is yet another opportunity to earn Allah assertions pleasure, every day, and every month, and the greatest of them is Allah mobile. If this area is this teaching you and I, that we're supposed to refresh our understanding of the opportunity of life for every minute and second we live Imagine then what attitude we're supposed to have when we know Ramadan is coming.

00:09:29 --> 00:09:33

The month that Allah azza wa jal has selected from all months.

00:09:35 --> 00:09:37

And he blesses us with many things in this month.

00:09:39 --> 00:09:41

So what are his two innate gullibility turbot,

00:09:43 --> 00:09:59

we pray many prayers in our lives. And after this lecture in sha Allah who will pre select in Asia, you've already printed a shirt yesterday. Does anyone sit and say I've already predict yesterday and the day before and the week after? to worry about that. This is yet another opportunity to Oh

00:10:00 --> 00:10:24

On the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala that's the entire purpose of life. The entire purpose of life is to earn Allah's pleasure. If Allah is pleased with you, that means the forgiveness of your sins and you enter the paradise you don't have to worry about these things anymore. That's why Allah azza wa jal, he said that the end of swallowtail Fisher, teaching us what our objective in life is, he says,

00:10:26 --> 00:10:28

he says subhanahu wa taala.

00:10:29 --> 00:10:51

Although we attend Malviya Yeah, a year to Hanif Sumatra, in Russia, you know, Arabic era we at an Malviya the idea of Allah azza wa jal being pleased with your soul all via them for the Holy everybody what holy Jannetty Jannetty at the end, because if you earned Allah's pleasure, as the Paradise is guaranteed no problems.

00:10:52 --> 00:10:56

So this will be learned from the narration. And so there is absolutely no doubt

00:10:58 --> 00:11:44

that Ramadan is the opportunity for all of us to increase in our record of good deeds. And that would be the only thing that is valuable to you at the time of your death, the good deeds, everything else on this world, their life you will not take with you in your grief. The moment you die, everything stays behind your wealth and your cars and your businesses and your friends and even your own family. Everyone stays behind that didn't go with you. They inherited and taken by others. The only one thing that will accompany Him to grief are your righteous deeds as the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, this is more of an encouragement for you and I to look at this

00:11:44 --> 00:11:46

month with a serious look.

00:11:47 --> 00:11:53

And to understand that whatever I do in this month, is going to accompany me in my grave

00:11:55 --> 00:11:59

when there will be loneliness and darkness and tightness in that home.

00:12:01 --> 00:12:35

But your righteous deeds will be transformed into a Man that smells good and looks good. And he will see that I'm a Luca salah I am your righteous deeds and he keeps you company until the hour occurs and you come out of your grave as the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, so an opportunity from Allah, you're the one that benefits from your deeds when you do them, and you finally move on from this world their life. And so we have every reason to take advantage of this month.

00:12:36 --> 00:12:53

It's such a huge blessing that even the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself would express amazing excitement at the arrival of Ramadan. Abu Dhabi Allahu Anhu. He narrates, he says that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:12:54 --> 00:13:01

and he had a gathering of companions with him. He said to them, Khadija a crucial role Ramadan

00:13:02 --> 00:13:07

is set to the Companions, or Melbourne has finally arrived. It's coming.

00:13:09 --> 00:13:48

Whether people know Ramadan is coming to what's after Shabbat other than Ramadan, why is he telling people Ramadan is coming? When that is common sense and everyone knows this knowledge. This implies is excitement. It's like if if someone huge and someone everyone looks forward to walks into this masjid, I'll look at him and I'll say, Brother has arrived. Ever you can all see him you know that he has arrived. But the way I express excitement is that I say Allahu Akbar, our brother has arrived. So Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is so excited for this opportunity. He says to the Companions, Ramadan is coming.

00:13:49 --> 00:14:19

Then he said to them, Sharon Mobarak he's exciting them. He's giving them information they need. So you and I are in desperate need of this information as well, because it excites the believer to look forward to this month. He said to them at Sheldon Mobarak. It's a blessed month. What does it mean? It can mean two things. Either it means that it is a dua from the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to his mother, may Allah bless all for you Ramadan.

00:14:21 --> 00:14:34

And it could also mean that it's a blessed month in the sense that there is baraka in this month. And what does Baraka mean? Baraka is when something gives more than expected

00:14:35 --> 00:14:48

if I had a plate of food, and I said this is food for one person, but to eat from it, that food is baraka. It gave more than expected and so Ramadan gives more than expected

00:14:50 --> 00:15:00

because there is within this month a night that is worth 1000 months plus. So you worship Allah a couple of hours and added to your right

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

God is ease and ease in ease of worship. This is baraka

00:15:05 --> 00:15:13

and the deeds in this month are multiplied. This is all baraka of this month. Then he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:15:14 --> 00:15:30

he to start with a Bible Gina, the gates of the paradise are opening this month, Mohawk Brothers and Sisters in Islam in just a few weeks, two weeks a few days, there's going to happen a huge universal change.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:40

Something huge we would have never known about had the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never told us, the gates of the Paradise will be wide open.

00:15:41 --> 00:15:57

The ahaadeeth will say for a Bible Santa, even the doors of the heavens, the doors of the sky will open. And not a single door shocks all of them open, every gate opens. And this is teaching you and I something

00:15:58 --> 00:16:35

that there is no barrier. There is no date that is shocked between us and Allah azza wa jal. It's like there's a connection between the Earth and the Heavens, between the Earth and the paradise. Everything is open. The message is Allah wants you tend to from this door, he wants you and I to enter the paradise. That's the message when we know that the gates open, you sit and you say, what do i Why do I have to know if the gate is open on our product? What difference does that make in my life? It's a message a message that I want to tell from this door, the doors open.

00:16:38 --> 00:16:39

Enter whichever one you want.

00:16:40 --> 00:17:06

And at the same time, what to look goofy here blable Jehane. The gates of the Hellfire are shocked. All of them are closed. Nothing remains open. What's the message? What's the point? Why do I need to know that the gates of the Hellfire closed, that they see Jesus Allah is saying I don't want you to enter this hellfire. I don't want to come in from here. I've closed it.

00:17:07 --> 00:17:13

So that even if you get to the doors, you see a chirp and you're forced to turn around make it over and go the other way.

00:17:14 --> 00:17:21

The message is I don't want to punish you. I don't want you to enter the cell phone you're not even for a bit.

00:17:22 --> 00:17:26

So where is the heart has to have

00:17:28 --> 00:18:07

become a weakened by these messages of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on up. This is what he's going to open the hearts him to be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said oh, this in a few seconds. And it was enough for the companions to be really eager and active and excited and motivated towards seeing the first day of the month. Now unfortunately, today, we need to spend time go up, go down, come again, deliver the message this way that way, repeat it so that we can become a week like a Sahara. And understand that this is no ordinary matter. Ramadan is no ordinary season, it just comes around and goes

00:18:09 --> 00:18:13

according to how you view them above. That's how your attitude will be.

00:18:15 --> 00:18:24

If this hadith is not opening up your mind, and you feel like Ramadan is just like another month, that most likely you will take advantage of it.

00:18:26 --> 00:18:48

But if your heart is awakened from the very beginning, and you understand the opportunity in this love, you understand the greatness of this month and you're excited, most likely you will perform in Ramadan and you'll take advantage of it. The heart needs to be alive and active and awaken before it starts.

00:18:49 --> 00:18:51

According to what attitude you have now

00:18:52 --> 00:18:55

is what you will be ending up doing in Ramadan.

00:18:56 --> 00:19:19

The heart is not looking forward, nothing will be done. The heart is excited, something will be done. And you can only get the heart excited by exposing your ease and your heart to the words of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and understanding what is required from you and I and then the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said WHAT TO * Luffy he che rpm

00:19:21 --> 00:19:47

and the devils are chained in this month. Lockport the biggest distraction in life, Allah removes it. So you don't have an excuse to say Allah has che upon was all over me. And as a result, I couldn't do anything. Now the biggest distraction Allah gets rid of it. And the devils are two types. There is an internal devil which is unclean, and there's an external devil. These are the devils that roam around.

00:19:48 --> 00:19:52

So which of the two are chained and locked away?

00:19:54 --> 00:19:59

From Allah They explained to us and they see the external devils that roam around they're the ones

00:20:00 --> 00:20:46

Is that a chained Cincinatti shell Murata to Shell up in the chain. As for the internal devil and Korean that's inside of each and every single one of us, and he flows just like blood flows in the veins and arteries, then he remains with you, he is not chained, but he is negative effect upon you is dramatically reduced. So he's a lot more controlled. And that is because you're fasting. And the idea is when a person is fasting, and the first hour goes by, and then two hours and then five hours, six hours, when a person is hungry. All he thinks of is food. So he thinks of something halal.

00:20:48 --> 00:20:52

And you don't think of something haram when you are starving.

00:20:53 --> 00:21:08

So as a result, a chaperone, his evil was was is dramatically reduced. Because your mind is somewhere else. It seems something halal, and that's fine. You see when there's a person start to think of desires and sin and how

00:21:09 --> 00:21:47

when he fills his stomach when he's eaten, and he's no longer starving, that desire has finished. Now his mind begins to play and take him to things where he shouldn't be. But then Ramadan, all of that is reduced because you have a D activity that is the fasting you have a night activity that is a Salah to taraweeh at 1pm Listening to do with liquor and then a few hours late they have a sore throat and then you're preparing a fee there's no there's no room for the shape on inside, to become big and to have that negative effect on you. By the mercy of Allah soldier. He removed the biggest distraction.

00:21:49 --> 00:21:57

And so for you and I, we should take from this part of the Hadith. What are your worldly distractions? Remove them also.

00:21:58 --> 00:22:05

One of the greatest distractions of people today is this phone that they have and the social media that is on it.

00:22:06 --> 00:22:24

How are you going to spend the days and the nights of Ramadan people the virus majority of mankind today that own food and have social media spend their days and night in scrolling from reel to reel on whatever social media app it is.

00:22:26 --> 00:22:30

What in Melilla in LA last year when a huge calamity and a disaster.

00:22:32 --> 00:22:36

Study is mentioned that people are scrolling about 60 meters a day.

00:22:37 --> 00:22:46

Then everything you scroll if you put it all laid it out, it's about 60 meters. Was that from about a heater? To a bit more than the end of the Masjid?

00:22:47 --> 00:22:51

Did a person walk that for the sake of Allah azza wa jal?

00:22:52 --> 00:22:57

Did you do that 60 meter walk to the house of Allah azza wa jal for a solid or not.

00:22:59 --> 00:23:19

This is a distraction. You don't benefit anything from it. You expose your mind to over 50 topics in less than five minutes. You absolutely take nothing, zero. And between all of that and haram that you see. This is not the life and the attitude of a believer is called can a scrolling

00:23:20 --> 00:23:25

up and down benefiting nothing. An idea comes by barely listen to it.

00:23:26 --> 00:23:39

A reminder, barely listen to it unless it looks attractive and as the colors in the video and it has a few singing noise in the background maybe captures your attention what has happened. What has happened with mankind.

00:23:40 --> 00:23:42

The believer is above all this stuff.

00:23:44 --> 00:23:55

And so don't you dare allow this to bite and to consume your BS in your precious moments of Ramadan. Allah removed the biggest distraction.

00:23:57 --> 00:24:17

And then the greatest all the distraction. The phone and the reels are still active in your head, you benefited nothing. What did you take from this part of Hadith. So it's worth it that you cut every distraction in life. And above the list is that phone and only only

00:24:18 --> 00:24:26

have it in your hand. If you already know there is something beneficial that will be aired on it and posted on it.

00:24:27 --> 00:24:38

You enter you take the benefit and you leave. No time for careless scrolling. No time. The things are going. The minutes are moving. The seconds are moving.

00:24:39 --> 00:24:46

The first thing this goes so quick. How many times we look at each other. Well, Allahu Akbar firsthand is already gone.

00:24:47 --> 00:24:51

And then before you know it, it's the last 10 nights

00:24:52 --> 00:24:57

you don't even feel the last 10 Nights people already talking about leaving at the bottom of the 27

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

and before you even

00:25:00 --> 00:25:18

can't even think of anything we're standing praying Salah tonight on Ramadan go. And even even Allah when he spoke about Ramadan in the Quran, you know what he said? He said a Yemen man do that. He said the Ramadan is a few days.

00:25:20 --> 00:25:38

There is Shugborough Ramadan, the month of Ramadan. But when Allah counted its days, he said a year might do that just a few days. You know this has a psychological impact on the human. Instead of saying one whole month, he said a few days,

00:25:39 --> 00:25:48

a few days, it creates the sense of urgency and panic in your heart. This is just a few days, a few days and it's all a few days in the sale. There's got

00:25:49 --> 00:25:58

a few days in this bargain this deal with one in a lifetime, or one in a year opportunity is going to end. Yeah, my do that.

00:25:59 --> 00:26:04

And so the idea is hurry up and make the most you can during this month.

00:26:05 --> 00:26:33

It's like you say to someone there's a farm, enter the firm, you have one hour maximum and go and pick whatever fruit you want from there. Take everything you get your hands on, and then walk out. How would this person's attitude be inside of that farm. When he knows that he has only one hour really would he take care of his phone and look at messages and scroll from reel to reel and waste a bit of time I got one hour

00:26:35 --> 00:26:54

you'll be in there non stop picking whatever you can't put it in in bags Hurry up is 40 minutes left half an hour 10 minutes left quick, scattered shoot. But Ramadan is more than entering a farm and picking fruits. Ramadan, you're entering in your harvesting and Hassan to good deeds.

00:26:56 --> 00:26:59

These are the heaviest weighing deeds you'll see on the Day of Judgment.

00:27:00 --> 00:27:12

So the believer needs to be aware of this matter. Allah removed the biggest distraction. So don't be distracted by things that are smaller than that. Be careful. Be careful from the very beginning.

00:27:13 --> 00:27:28

And teach this to others especially to your family as well. Make sure phone time is limited in the house. televisions are probably often shut down altogether there's no need and then the distraction get rid of it and focus

00:27:30 --> 00:27:45

Subhanallah then in the the sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, feeling a little human and official. He said to the Companions, there is a night somewhere in this month. It is better than 1000 months of worship.

00:27:48 --> 00:27:49

Lay you let on he didn't tell us when

00:27:51 --> 00:27:56

that's from the mercy of a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he didn't tell us what I imagined he told us when

00:27:58 --> 00:28:05

there is absolutely no doubt that 90% of the men with hibernate in their homes and only come out late at the paddock.

00:28:06 --> 00:28:21

So out of mercy, He did not tell us when even though it was known and then that knowledge was removed. Imagine how much of a fitna would have been if we knew when les little cuddle was imagine. Can you imagine the state of people?

00:28:22 --> 00:28:37

If we certainly knew that Lee little cuddle was the 27th for most likely could be 27. But no one can ever tell you guaranteed it's the 27th of every we don't know. Can you imagine what would have happened if we certainly knew it.

00:28:39 --> 00:29:28

It will cause the big fitna people would have avoided extra effort and then put the most in that one night. And that's someone that did not benefit from Ramadan. So it's hidden, it's somewhere there. So that each and every single night of the last 10 You put the same effort equally in all of those nights as a result, you will win the reward of little cuddle and you will win the entire month. Because your efforts on that night was different to the other efforts of the last 10 Nights. You've won Leela together and you've won the last 10 nights as well because the last 10 Nights are also part of Ramadan. They also Ramadan they're also an opportunity. Now then in the visa Maharani he was

00:29:28 --> 00:29:32

in love warned us about something. He said man holy Maha Yoga has

00:29:33 --> 00:29:42

anyone who is deprived of the goodness of that night. Then he is deprived in the sight of Allah. This person is a loser.

00:29:44 --> 00:29:59

So you see the Hadith It began with a lot of excitement, a lot of joy, a lot of good news. There was a lot of encouragement at the beginning of the Hadith. A blessed month doors of the paradise or open doors of the * are shouting at the shape on is locked up and

00:30:00 --> 00:30:06

So much goodness and at the end in the Bissell Allahu alayhi wa sallam concludes it with a warning.

00:30:07 --> 00:30:24

So as much as we are excited, we're not fooled and deceived. We know that there are people that will enter this month and at the end of this month, they are losers in the sight of Allah We ask Allah azza wa jal not to give us this ending,

00:30:25 --> 00:30:32

but the reality is that is happening. Wouldn't it be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying this at his time?

00:30:33 --> 00:30:37

Can you imagine how much more were in need of warning one another?

00:30:39 --> 00:30:44

of warning one another not to take advantage like that and to take it for granted.

00:30:45 --> 00:30:48

Man hurry Mahela fucka Huria

00:30:50 --> 00:30:56

imagine at the end of the month your label as someone who is a loser and deprived

00:30:58 --> 00:31:03

while I hold our quota in Lebanon, this is why the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to

00:31:04 --> 00:31:12

me the one who enters Ramadan and comes out of Ramadan and Allah hasn't given him me he be disgraced and humiliated.

00:31:15 --> 00:31:33

Allah made this dua because he taught it to Djibouti. Djibouti in situ, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sent them to make it wouldn't be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Amin, Allah Djibouti and the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, all of them sit me into this door.

00:31:34 --> 00:31:36

That's a big, big, big danger.

00:31:38 --> 00:32:10

Why? Because there are many, many opportunities to be forgiven in this month. The fasting if you did nothing but finance the month, you will be forgiven. If you did nothing, alongside your fast you prayed the nights, that's another opportunity of forgiveness. If you took advantage of little cuddle, that's another opportunity of forgiveness. If you did the Ramadan opportunity of forgiveness, if you made the opportunity of forgiveness, if you fit the poor opportunity of forgiveness if you made thicker opportunity for forgiveness, era Quran opportunity for forgiveness.

00:32:11 --> 00:32:28

So the one who leaves the Ramadan and Allah hasn't forgiven him. And then he was disgraced. What did this guy do? You had more than a million opportunities. Every single day Allah frees mankind from the Hellfire twice a day.

00:32:29 --> 00:32:40

Yanni that seeks the opportunities, you missed all of that. You want to be given because you're fasting because you're solid because of limited Codenomicon. What did you do?

00:32:41 --> 00:32:59

How bad could this person be? When he had a million dollars of forgiveness and he took advantage of nothing. This is why he was disgraced and humiliated at the end. So need to be very careful that we treat this month in the manner Allah wants us to treat it with full seriousness.

00:33:00 --> 00:33:01

Brothers and Sisters in Islam.

00:33:02 --> 00:33:04

That's why it's very important to prepare.

00:33:06 --> 00:33:10

In order to avoid being disgraced by Allah assertion.

00:33:11 --> 00:33:38

And just like anything in life, we always prepare in order to see success. In life, you must prepare for your exams, if you want to pass, you have to prepare. You can't just rock up to the examination room and do an exam. Right? This is maybe 1% of mankind can do this people that are gifted really incredibly different, can walk in and do an exam and pass and beat everyone.

00:33:39 --> 00:33:41

But the standard is you need to prepare

00:33:43 --> 00:34:19

before you achieve success in anything in life. If you're preparing for a meeting, or if you had a meeting, you need to prepare an agenda before. If you don't, then every member in that meeting is just going to waste time and at the end you benefit nothing. If you have a job interview you need to prepare for it. You need to prepare in the way you dress in your paperwork and your documents to have a chance to be successful and earn that job. If you rock up with no preparation and most likely will be rejected. Even our chips we need to prepare for them. And I look at our solid you just don't walk in from the door Allahu Akbar and your prayer for

00:34:21 --> 00:34:40

you make booboo. Come to the masjid you pray select the Sunnah you sit down a little bit of thicker some Dora. Then you enter alpha c over that was a preparation for a solid so you can make the most out of your Salah. And so many people that complain about their prayer.

00:34:41 --> 00:34:59

Almost most of the times you find brother that you're complaining you're not finding who you are in solid but what preparation Did you meet for a solid? I think he got up straightaway once the Allahu Akbar and he finished. How you know a fan. If a fan is on, if I turn it off

00:35:00 --> 00:35:04

It still spins, it needs like another minute until it stops and comes down.

00:35:06 --> 00:35:10

When you come to a solid, and you say Allahu Akbar with no preparation,

00:35:11 --> 00:35:40

that fan that will be fan is still on the end of the Salah, now you'll be ready for the proper Salette. But by then you've already finished your fault. So that's why the sooner was there. The sooner was there to calm you down, cool you down, turn off that old life and it's distraction slows you down. Then you get up on fourth, now you're prepared, at least somewhat your heart is there in terms of focus and concentration is everything in life, we need to prepare for

00:35:41 --> 00:35:46

what has as well, no different. And so Ramadan is no different. We need to prepare for it.

00:35:48 --> 00:36:14

And even in the beast, Allahu Allah human syndrome, you know the famous story of an Israelite William Allagash. He goes from Mecca, tbaytel MK this and then from there up to the heavens. You think he was just awakened all of a sudden at night and taken on this journey. He was prepared for the journey. And that's when God came and opened his chest and removed his heart and washed it and fill that with no rule. And

00:36:16 --> 00:36:21

that was all in preparation for that journey to meet Allah on social

00:36:22 --> 00:36:24

preparation is important.

00:36:25 --> 00:36:31

What is wrong with the majority of us, we don't understand preparation in the way we're supposed to understand it.

00:36:33 --> 00:36:51

And so once sort of Mabon arrives, we just enter, we got no clue what to do, and how to do things. And we learned along the way, in the first day, we learn something in the second day in that first week, we learned something else. And by the time Ramadan is finished, we've learned so much of Ramadan, but but that was for Allah.

00:36:53 --> 00:36:55

So we need to prepare. And the best way to prepare

00:36:57 --> 00:37:23

is with knowledge. And the first way to prepare is with the right attitude. And I told you that hadith enhances our attitude. So now we're excited. If you have that excitement within you, most likely you will take advantage of the month. The right attitude. Add to that as well. That Allahu Allah, this could be your last Thermoball new witness.

00:37:24 --> 00:37:25

We always say this.

00:37:27 --> 00:37:29

and wallah when we say it, we're not lying.

00:37:30 --> 00:37:41

Because last year when we said it, or whoever you heard it from, wasn't it true for many people around the globe? That indeed it was demonstrable? So it wasn't a lie.

00:37:42 --> 00:37:45

It was a fact. It was true.

00:37:48 --> 00:37:54

But you didn't experience the plus trauma, it could be I don't know. There's still a few days left.

00:37:55 --> 00:38:06

If Allah azza wa jal grants us that life and we see the Salama bomb. Your attitude from the beginning should be this could be my last thought above all.

00:38:07 --> 00:38:18

Because one Ramadan will be your last one. We didn't know. Is it 2020 fours or Milan or 2025 zomba? We don't know.

00:38:19 --> 00:38:24

But there is absolutely no doubt one of them will be your last.

00:38:25 --> 00:39:00

So once you have that, in your mind, your attitude changes, creates that panic and that urgency that I need to look after this because perhaps this could be the last one. And by the way, you know, diesel Allahu alayhi wa sallam used to do this for certain worships with his companions, he would see two companions at times advising them, he would see their content you know, solid, solid, solid and what their Did you know that He even used to say that he used to see to the Companions if you get up to establish a solid, then pre the fair, willing prayer.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:13

What's the fair willing group? What does that mean? You only pray this as a rule. This is the goodbye salad. That said I will not live to see another solid Cypriot as your last prayer.

00:39:15 --> 00:39:21

He used to say this to the Companions. Imagine when you're told this just before your Salah.

00:39:23 --> 00:39:27

This changes your attitude to that solid completely in a different way.

00:39:28 --> 00:39:35

Imagine I told you this is your last selected shirt isn't you're not going to put it after that. No more Fisher after this.

00:39:36 --> 00:39:45

How is your salad going to be Wallahi it's going to be for for sure. Even if you did not know what who you are is somehow you learn what oh sure is.

00:39:47 --> 00:40:00

If you knew this was useless to have solid, who sure will come from the sky. Automatically you will know what it is. You will not rush in that prayer. Well look you will not you will take your time. You

00:40:00 --> 00:40:08

to perfect your Aquarius route. If you're the Imam you will not care what people see behind you. If you took long or you don't, you will not care.

00:40:09 --> 00:40:13

Right? If someone was calling you while at one login, you will not care.

00:40:14 --> 00:40:18

Because you're certain this is my last one and after it I'm going

00:40:19 --> 00:41:01

so mad as well in my life with a perfect solid so I can meet Allah with it. What's different? What's different? Who guaranteed you you're going to live another prayer? Who guaranteed you you're going to witness another Ramadan who? No one. It's just the wishful desire that's within us. It's a wishful desire within us. It keeps distracting us telling us that you will live on and on and on and on. But the reality is one day it's going to come to an end. You don't know when that's why you cannot afford to just sit down and relax and I think most likely My death will be the end. What's the end? What's the end?

00:41:04 --> 00:41:05

Look around you today.

00:41:08 --> 00:41:17

In the past, many use the dying in old age today equally as much a dying in younger age

00:41:18 --> 00:41:20

equally as much if not more.

00:41:23 --> 00:41:33

So you need to be careful and aware. Fast. the fasting of a fair willing person CML mu D may call it

00:41:35 --> 00:41:49

treat the first day of Ramadan as though this is the last first day of Ramadan you witness in your life. And yes, continue to ask Allah to give you many more Ramadan's. But don't sit on that because that's not guaranteed.

00:41:53 --> 00:42:05

So the attitude needs to be corrected. Coming to them are born with this attitude. You will find Yahushua and you taking advantage of this month a lot better than if you did not enter with this attitude.

00:42:06 --> 00:42:10

Imagine a Ramadan without the attitude that this is my last storm of all.

00:42:12 --> 00:42:16

You could have done better had you assume this one knows your last.

00:42:18 --> 00:42:47

So we remain focused about this matter since it's a little things. It's few things that will make a huge impact on your online if you things is correct here, correct here and approach Ramadan with that you don't need a lot and it will make a big difference in your life. From the greatest matters to prepare is the preparation of the heart, no doubt, right? You don't want just your body fasting. Your heart also needs to be prepared for the spiritual occasion.

00:42:48 --> 00:43:06

And the best preparation for the heart. Is that you purify it, clean it. You see Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before the oil mirage in going to Allah His heart was purified, it was cleansed. Like we know that Gibreel is not going to come to us and open our chest, take our heart and wash it that's not going to happen.

00:43:08 --> 00:43:22

But Allah azza wa jal has taught us something that can give the same effect and purify that heart from its evil and blackness and sins and heedlessness. And that is, Allah.

00:43:23 --> 00:43:25

Don't take this lightly.

00:43:26 --> 00:43:33

I know we hear the concept over and over again. But he needs to hear it from this perspective. A Toba to what is still for

00:43:35 --> 00:43:39

seeking Allah's forgiveness, and asking Allah to accept the October.

00:43:41 --> 00:43:43

There is nothing on earth we know

00:43:45 --> 00:43:49

that purifies the heart more than a list of all with Toba.

00:43:50 --> 00:44:06

Nothing on earth we know that cleanses the heart more than an STL file with Dola. So this is not a light matter. It's not something that we know the toggle is still for no promise of loss of law.

00:44:07 --> 00:44:20

See that attitude with is still far requires as is still for that that attitude of is still far is wrong, and that requires and is still falling in itself. Because he did not value the greatness of him is still hot.

00:44:22 --> 00:44:28

And he still fall was taught by Allah to Adam when he sinned and eat from the tree.

00:44:30 --> 00:44:34

He ate from the tree he disobeyed his Lord while saw them all above all.

00:44:36 --> 00:44:42

And as a result, he faced a huge calamity in life and that was he was removed from the paradise and put on Earth.

00:44:43 --> 00:44:48

We're all here. Because of that sin and Allah had decreed so

00:44:50 --> 00:44:52

then Allah azza wa jal

00:44:53 --> 00:44:59

had mercy on Adam and taught him words he can see that are so powerful

00:45:00 --> 00:45:04

that will cleanse your heart from the sin in the mistake you did.

00:45:05 --> 00:45:22

He taught him see, or better Valentina and fusina for him and his wife Hawa our Lord, we wronged ourself a wolf enough's. We wronged ourselves. No you didn't run us. It is us that wrong our own selves.

00:45:23 --> 00:45:30

And that's the first condition of a proper is still for you got to acknowledge your own yourself.

00:45:31 --> 00:45:36

The heart is in the state it's in because of your own doings and no one else.

00:45:37 --> 00:45:46

So acknowledge that before you a lot of alumna. fusina I've been bad to myself. I've hurt myself

00:45:48 --> 00:45:54

are better Valentina and fusina were in London, fear Lana, whatever Hamner a lot.

00:45:56 --> 00:46:10

If you do not forgive us, him bestow Your mercy upon us Lynette Coonan and Minam ha CD in. We are going to be losers. This is what your father our father, the mother in his celebs said,

00:46:11 --> 00:46:28

What are you without still far and Toba? What? I tell you what you are without it, or a loser. That's what Allah said. Linda Coonan Minahasa CD, you're a loser. Without still far with Tober.

00:46:30 --> 00:46:34

See, if you don't have this, you will be given Ramadan as a loser.

00:46:35 --> 00:46:37

You will end as a loser. You benefited nothing.

00:46:39 --> 00:46:50

The greatest preparation of the heart is still far with Toba in Allah still fought with don't wait Allah involves three things.

00:46:51 --> 00:46:56

One related to the past, one related to the present, one related to the future

00:46:57 --> 00:47:16

is a condition of October. Give you it in a simple manner so that you never forget it. One related to the past, and that is that you are remorseful for everything you did have bad in the past. remorseful, you feel bad? How could I have done that?

00:47:17 --> 00:47:20

How could I have disobeyed my mica and my Lord?

00:47:21 --> 00:47:24

Didn't I understand and know his Greatness?

00:47:25 --> 00:47:31

See, you feel deep regret that you had done something you were not supposed to do.

00:47:32 --> 00:47:36

And Adam October to Nadella told us all about Regret.

00:47:38 --> 00:47:41

Regret that cigarette that you have been smoking all along?

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


00:47:46 --> 00:47:49

And how old you have been seen in consuming?

00:47:51 --> 00:47:53

Regret and how old that you have been listening.

00:47:55 --> 00:48:02

Regret al haram that you did with your hurts? How can you have done that? Why y'all knowing that Allah saw you

00:48:04 --> 00:48:05

want to shine?

00:48:06 --> 00:48:12

won't be embarrassed? Won't you ashamed? That Allah saw you doing that and you continue doing it?

00:48:14 --> 00:48:17

You can tell a signifi set the scene in front of your father, you wouldn't do it.

00:48:18 --> 00:48:25

And even if you did, it would be a lot less than sitting before Allah because your father will not hold you to account on the day of judgment.

00:48:27 --> 00:48:28

How can you have done that?

00:48:30 --> 00:48:36

This is how you're supposed to discuss the matter with yourself. And we're all that person all of us.

00:48:37 --> 00:48:38

No one is an exception.

00:48:39 --> 00:48:44

So that's the first matter that's related to Adobe, the past, regret,

00:48:45 --> 00:48:53

then the present. And that is your Epstein from that scene in the present moment. Keep away from it.

00:48:54 --> 00:48:58

keeping away from the sin itself is a good deed Allah gives you

00:49:00 --> 00:49:02

if you leave a sin,

00:49:03 --> 00:49:12

because Allah forbid, that's a hustler. Every time you lift, it doesn't do hard work here, honey, it did not benefit.

00:49:13 --> 00:49:17

That's a hassle every time you intended and you left it.

00:49:18 --> 00:49:29

And then to the future, you make a commitment between you and Allah. You don't alter any words, but just an intention that you will never step foot in that direction of the sin ever again.

00:49:31 --> 00:49:42

And if you do happen to fall, don't plan it. But if you do happen to fall, you immediately pick up and you repeat this process once again, with seriousness and honesty and

00:49:44 --> 00:49:59

and sincerity in the heart. That's how you got to begin now this is the preparation you need before Ramadan. Because if you do that, Allah promises the heart becomes cleansed. For in who're tab

00:50:00 --> 00:50:11

Suki la boo somos I seldom said if he put an end to those sins, and me the Toba and is still a foul, his heart becomes polished.

00:50:12 --> 00:50:13

That's the promise.

00:50:14 --> 00:50:18

You see him Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not playing tricks with us.

00:50:19 --> 00:50:22

You This is the formula that's the equation for a pure herb.

00:50:24 --> 00:50:29

Don't only steal for guarantees you from ALLAH and a pure heart.

00:50:30 --> 00:50:34

If the heart is pure, it's going to benefit from Ramadan.

00:50:36 --> 00:50:38

If you're interoperable with a black art,

00:50:40 --> 00:50:42

so much goodness, you will be deprived of it.

00:50:43 --> 00:50:51

She needs to focus on you still fall from now to Ramadan and through Ramadan, so much will still fall is a way of life until the day you die.

00:50:53 --> 00:50:55

It's a way of life and it's still far

00:50:57 --> 00:51:10

and choose the good times. And the best time for eliciting far is just before an official is called the time of Saha. The time in where people consume a soul.

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

That's the best time for a steal vault.

00:51:14 --> 00:51:18

It's the time of who should work of sincerity of humanity.

00:51:20 --> 00:51:22

Because there's no distractions at this time.

00:51:23 --> 00:51:40

No one takes phone calls at that time. No one responds to emails you don't take children to school at that time. Is not a time for preparing a big meal and eating a soul Aslan the best so who is a date? She kept things simple. That time is 40 stilvoll.

00:51:42 --> 00:51:50

It is a time where Allah has social distance to the first heaven in a way that suits his majesty. Subhanahu wa ala

00:51:51 --> 00:51:55

and he's the one who's calling on to us whose us

00:51:57 --> 00:52:00

He is calling seeing him in western fear.

00:52:02 --> 00:52:07

Is there anyone out there desperate for my forgiveness? Admin Mustafa?

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

If anyone out there

00:52:12 --> 00:52:16

Mustafi see Mustafa is member for all meaning.

00:52:17 --> 00:52:18

I am Mustafa.

00:52:19 --> 00:52:25

In the sight of Allah, He sees you as a Mustafa and he calls you out there some stuff.

00:52:26 --> 00:52:34

Forget your name and forget what you're known by. It is an honor for you to be known as a Mustafizur.

00:52:35 --> 00:52:39

And a Mustafi is someone who wants Allah's forgiveness.

00:52:40 --> 00:52:46

Forget your name. Now, forget your titles and who you are and how you're known among people forget that.

00:52:48 --> 00:52:49

If Allah social

00:52:51 --> 00:53:09

can look at you, and call them out and call you a Mustang fear, you have passed you've on success. You know why? Because Allah says, Is anyone out there seeking forgiveness for our fear Allah, so that I may forgive him.

00:53:11 --> 00:53:15

That's Allah saying that every single night

00:53:17 --> 00:53:17

of the

00:53:18 --> 00:53:47

because we're in need of forgiveness every night of the that's why this occasion happens every night you might default. If Allah comes down, that's a huge event. That should have been like once a year, or maybe twice a year max. You see when Jibreel comes down as little cuddle, when she breathed comes down, it's Lea little cuddle, you really comes down once a year now. And that is for a little cuddle.

00:53:48 --> 00:53:51

Allah comes down. What's the occasion?

00:53:53 --> 00:53:54

Allah who wants to forgive you?

00:53:56 --> 00:54:05

So if you're serious about the purification, what would you be do? You would be up at that time seeing a star for Allah a star for a lot of stuff.

00:54:07 --> 00:54:10

If you're not serious about forgiveness,

00:54:11 --> 00:54:14

most likely you will be sleeping at that time.

00:54:16 --> 00:54:18

There's no other explanation.

00:54:19 --> 00:54:23

Your Lord has come down, saying Would anyone like to be forgiven?

00:54:24 --> 00:54:26

And you're sleeping means what?

00:54:28 --> 00:54:32

I seems to be I'm not in need of it at this moment. Maybe tomorrow night.

00:54:34 --> 00:54:36

How can the believer reach such a state?

00:54:38 --> 00:54:53

Get up and take advantage of that moment when Brothers and Sisters in Islam Allah He even even if you remain the bed and you just open your eyes and you set the stop for Allah. Remember, and it's still far with Dobo Dwyer doesn't require elbow doesn't require you facing the Qibla

00:54:54 --> 00:54:56

doesn't require any of these methods.

00:54:57 --> 00:54:59

You can even be upon generika

00:55:01 --> 00:55:14

But open the eyes. You don't even have to open your eyes if you want to keep them closed but your mind is open. They're in your heart is with you in your bed. Stuff Rola stuff, make, make his stuff on your bed.

00:55:15 --> 00:55:21

If you feel it's heavy to move out, it's still far from your bed just before them and Fraser

00:55:23 --> 00:55:27

didn't take this opportunity, you deprive it on yourself, no one loses but you

00:55:28 --> 00:55:30

and yet it comes again the next night.

00:55:31 --> 00:55:52

And yet it's there every single moment of the day. You have the Mercy of Allah so but none of it we're speaking on another level, right? We're speaking about a higher level. I'm telling you about the best of time. Otherwise, there is no time that is bad for still for every second is a time for stilvoll So long as you're alive.

00:55:54 --> 00:56:02

But we're speaking about a better time, a time that will give you that charge in that energy and that goodness

00:56:03 --> 00:56:21

is that it's still far as * Allah praise these people as highly OMYA still have a wound. You know that Allah praise Mycenean in the Quran. By see Nina people have high level. One of their quality is what they seek Allah's forgiveness, the time of Sahaba.

00:56:23 --> 00:56:31

So be among them, Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Because if that heart is purified and cleansed, you're off to a good start B is the Lakita Allah

00:56:32 --> 00:56:41

and if not, the heart is blocked with the sins it's going to struggle with the month of Ramadan Basketball Association to grant us forgiveness and mercy.

00:56:44 --> 00:57:07

Another thing the believer could do, and this is very important as well reconcilable between you and those who via cut off, especially family members, reconciliation is very important. I tell you why. Lenin Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the two people who have boycotted one another

00:57:08 --> 00:57:26

and haven't mended the relationship and three days go by and the angels Allah tells the angels respite these people, give them time, they will not be forgiven until the mend and fix that relationship for the sake of Allah.

00:57:27 --> 00:57:36

On will will have a new day of study where they are deprived of forgiveness until we fix between one another

00:57:37 --> 00:57:48

Obon Mr. Abu Dhabi Allahu Anhu was asked okay for condemned the stock below Ramadan. How did you companions? How did you prepare for Ramadan?

00:57:49 --> 00:57:56

This is a question right? How did you prepare for Ramadan have been Masaru gives us another perspective alongside what I've been saying.

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

He says

00:58:01 --> 00:58:02

none of us would dare

00:58:04 --> 00:58:13

to enter Ramadan and within our hearts is an atom's weight of hatred or enmity or jealousy towards one another.

00:58:15 --> 00:58:17

Mecca and I had on Asia.

00:58:18 --> 00:58:20

None of us would dare look at his language.

00:58:22 --> 00:58:36

We wouldn't dare to enter the month, we still got beef and issues and boycotting and hatred and jealousy and enmity between one another. You wouldn't dare to do that.

00:58:39 --> 00:58:42

And so keep the records for the sake of Allah has solution.

00:58:44 --> 00:58:53

Trying the very best you can. We know sometimes situations are difficult and oppression has taken place. And the one oppressed

00:58:55 --> 00:59:00

has not been welcomed by his person. Sometimes that's the case.

00:59:01 --> 00:59:10

Well ask Allah azza wa jal to rectify the hearts and tickly the matters. But I'm giving a general statement here. I'm seeing trying the best you can.

00:59:11 --> 00:59:18

Even if you were oppressed, and you have that encouragement and you have it all there in a deen

00:59:19 --> 00:59:47

and you're able to do reconciliation with the one who wronged do. If you can do it for the sake of Allah, then indeed your reward is huge in the sight of Allah, Allah who will not forget that for you. I do reward you greatly for it. You know, I had a story of a chef of mine he tells us very inspiring moving story. A chef of mine he says that he was in his local masjid. And an issue happened between him and one of the attendees of Al Masjid.

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

Was chef was completely innocent. They had nothing to do with it. The attendee of the masjid got it all wrong, and he became very upset with the shack and he boycotted the

01:00:00 --> 01:00:13

And he did not attend the masjid again. He left stayed at home. Of course the chef was concerned and but what did we do with this man? Let's go visit him for the sake of Allah and fix things up and clarify what happened.

01:00:14 --> 01:00:17

The brother was not interested. Paulo's doors shut.

01:00:20 --> 01:00:26

Months go by, a year goes by. And the matter is not sitting light with the shark. It's very big.

01:00:27 --> 01:00:46

So he said he went to his chef to seek advice. He said their chef, this is an incident that happened in the masjid. I cannot ignore it. It's growing big and big in my heart. The brother I did not wrong him. This is actually what happened. And he's decided to boycott us and he hasn't come to the masjid for ye.

01:00:48 --> 01:00:59

Allah, you know what the Sheikh said? He said to mama, he, I don't know what to say to you. But what I can say is this. If that man enters the Hellfire is because of you

01:01:00 --> 01:01:02

get any other cause? You're the reason for it?

01:01:04 --> 01:01:08

Who are these changed the attitude in the face of a chef? What do you mean?

01:01:11 --> 01:01:34

A chef, we want to be the reason why people enter the paradise. Not reasons why people enter Jahannam he couldn't do it. So he sent a group of his brothers to go to him and preach in once again. See anything he wants will do. Chef is not in the wrong, doesn't matter. Anything he wants to do.

01:01:35 --> 01:01:41

So the brother finally he said, I want the chef to apologize in front of the people in the masjid.

01:01:43 --> 01:01:49

This was very difficult for Punisher like and for the sake of Allah and they were teaching people to reconcile the candidate yourself.

01:01:51 --> 01:01:52

So he swallowed

01:01:54 --> 01:02:18

and after solid inertia, the congregation he announced, saying that we have wronged our brother for the sake of unity and reconciliation. He made up saying we have wronged our brother we seek his forgiveness. May Allah forgive us and him and sha Allah who are willing for him to come to the masjid Palace and the news reached the brother that chef has apologized and

01:02:19 --> 01:02:52

the brother said none of that that's not enough. Apology. I'm a member of Salette and humor after Joomla when everyone is dead. Shakes have Allahu Akbar. That was huge. But he said because I did it once and it was solid in Asia. It made it a little bit easier now to do. The Grande is still fall and Toba on the nimble in front of everyone and solve selected Joomla after Joomla he announced an apology a public apology for that man. And then finally he came in the matter was resolved.

01:02:53 --> 01:03:15

Inspiring Subhanallah you want to be a reason for why people enter the paradise not the hellfire. Even if you were wronged. You might be wronged but you see if your oppressor goes into the fire has because of you that wrong that you have. So you know it's different with everyone but to ask Allah azza wa jal to mend those broken relationships

01:03:17 --> 01:03:17


01:03:21 --> 01:03:25

and from the matters that I can share with you as all is an

01:03:26 --> 01:04:00

increase in intensifying your adware now before Ramadan comes in when Ramadan comes that's a whole new opportunity with a door open. From now tomo bomb, ask Allah assertion that he grants your life to Ramadan and He enables you to do righteous deeds in Ramadan, he bless them for you and accept them from you. Because as I said, at the beginning, it's not about getting to them about you know, a common diet that is among the people is what Allama Boliviana Ramadan for yoga, if Allah azza wa jal allowed you to reach Ramadan, and how did you achieve something?

01:04:01 --> 01:04:05

What's the achievement in that? If you reach Ramadan and did nothing

01:04:06 --> 01:04:40

but rather it could be a witness against you? She reached it and did nothing. So the point as I said to you, it's not just about reaching in Omaha. It's about oh Allah allow us to reach your mobile and enable us to do righteous deeds that you're pleased with. Bless it for us and accept it from us. That's the complete door for approaching Omaha. Also have a lovely Allah who used to make six months of dua before Ramadan, not two weeks, six months, that Allah allow them to reach Ramadan and benefit from it.

01:04:41 --> 01:04:48

So we make dua, because every good deed you do is by last permission, you know that?

01:04:49 --> 01:04:59

Even in the beast Allahu alayhi wa sallam used to say Allahu maintenace and Luca Farah, La Jolla, la whatever Kalamoon Cassatt used to say, oh, Allah enabled me

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

To do the good

01:05:02 --> 01:05:22

and enable me to keep away from the bad. I ask you a question. If a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can do good deeds, without the help, why is he asking if he could do it alone? Why is he asking Allah? Why is he saying, Oh Allah enabled me to do righteous deeds? If he can do it by himself? Why is he asking?

01:05:24 --> 01:05:34

That's an acknowledgement that even he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will not be able to do a single good deed without the permission of Allah.

01:05:35 --> 01:06:06

And that's the state and condition for every single one of us. You see why it's important to ask Allah to give you the ability to do righteous deeds. That's why after every solid fault, we say Allah Houma, I need an electrical Shoukry cause the river that which means Allah enable me, support me, helped me strengthen me that I consistently remember you and be grateful to and then I always worship you and perfect my worship for you.

01:06:08 --> 01:06:45

You make restore after so after you've prayed, you've already prayed was already given you the ability to worship Him, you prayed why you asked him after salah. Because you consistently need the help of Allah. For every moment in life, if you're going to worship him subhanaw taala and remain on that path. You don't when you're concerned by a big battle in life, you make dua out for it, right? How many people come in, they asked me about how do we do? Do I list the horror? automatically when someone asks this, I know that he's concerned by a Mata and that's why he wants to learn because he needs to make dua for it.

01:06:46 --> 01:07:00

When someone comes to me and says Brother, please make dua for my parents they're sick make dua for my child is sick May Allah azza wa jal grant us all Shiva. I automatically know that that's a big concern for him. That's why he's asking.

01:07:01 --> 01:07:04

And any matter that is big in your life, you always turn in a

01:07:06 --> 01:07:09

same attitude, put a total Milan.

01:07:10 --> 01:07:21

If you're making dua for a mobile, then automatically that says a lot about the fact that you have Ramadan is a great concern in life.

01:07:22 --> 01:07:28

You want to know if you're concerned about Ramadan coming on, measure yourself through the DUA you're making.

01:07:30 --> 01:07:43

If you're increasing your DUA, that Allah granted the ability to witness Ramadan and to benefit from it and you're doing this in every Salat of yours, and day and night, that's a good indication that Ramadan is a great concern for you.

01:07:45 --> 01:07:51

If you're not doing any dua for Ramadan, the most likely Ramadan is not a great concern for you.

01:07:54 --> 01:08:08

Other than being a great concern is attached to a dark house, this is the this is the rule concerning this matter. So increase your DUA so that Allah azza wa jal grants you that ability for Ramadan.

01:08:10 --> 01:08:18

And finally, Brothers and Sisters in Islam as a then Alicia approaches us one final thing

01:08:19 --> 01:08:28

you need to know that the greatest Mata in Ramadan is what is the fasting, fasting it's days.

01:08:29 --> 01:08:48

That's the biggest thing of Ramadan, because that's the obligation invulnerable, everything else are voluntary deeds, like the prayers at night reading with Will is still far all of these are voluntary. Of course, the believer is encouraged to increase from that as best as you can.

01:08:50 --> 01:08:55

But the biggest unique for in Ramadan is the fastest.

01:08:56 --> 01:09:11

So how can you be prepared for Ramadan if you enter and you don't even know how to fast correctly as a big disaster. So one of the greatest ways to prepare for Ramadan is to understand how to fast correctly.

01:09:12 --> 01:09:23

Many assume that fasting is just an app refraining from food and water and intimate relations from failure until sunset and that's it without we fasted.

01:09:24 --> 01:09:37

Allah Allah, Allah they used to see this is the easy type of fasting is to say fasting is two types. The first thing of the body, or that's the easy one, and the first thing of the limbs and that's the difficult one, and that's the correct fasting.

01:09:39 --> 01:09:59

The first thing of the limbs you see what's the point? What's the purpose of fasting? Every single you hear it? Not once more than once. You hadn't Edina m&r katiba Aliko cm chemical Dr. Levine having publikum la Liko that taco the purpose of fasting is a tough world to attain a taco development

01:10:00 --> 01:10:18

The talk goes on from there. But hang on a second. What is a taco? A taco is basically to increase your good deeds and to decrease reduce your sins and your disobedience is what applies more good deeds less and less and less disobedience and sins until we're all the way to the floor. That's a Taqwa.

01:10:19 --> 01:10:31

So the first thing itself, yes, you refrain from eating and drinking. But the correct and real fasting is the fasting from sins and transgression. Because that's what nurtures a Taqwa.

01:10:32 --> 01:10:35

Leaving food and drink doesn't know Jataka

01:10:36 --> 01:11:17

what not is a Taka is leaving since that's what nurtures a Taqwa. Right? Otherwise, giving a food and drink with everyone does this. People do it for diets, athletes, the people that want to cut down on their way do it children that everyone knows that this is a really cheap one in this other than of course, we do it with the intention of worship. But the real achievement is to cut down on those sins. That's the real fasting. That's why in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam taught us alongside refraining from food, drink and intimate relations. He said, there's another three things you have to leave out as well. He said millennia that oh the zoo anyone who doesn't refrain from

01:11:17 --> 01:11:50

evil speech, swearing, lying, cursing, slander, haram, gossip, backbiting, anyone who doesn't refrain from this while I'm Melody, and refrain from evil actions, from haram that could be done with the eyes with the ease with the hands with the feet while in jail and anyone who doesn't give up ignorance, and that is foolish character and bad behavior. Felisa de la hija Farah Yoda and Muhammad SHA, Allah doesn't need you to refrain from food and drink, might as well go and eat and drink. You didn't benefit anything.

01:11:52 --> 01:12:35

That's what the Hadith says. alongside those three things, you gotta give up these three things as well. The tongue, the seams of the limb, and the foolish character. This is why if someone wants to be arrogant and foolish towards you and obnoxious towards you, during the day of Ramadan, you're supposed to say to him, What, what's the Sunnah? And in you saw him? What does that mean? What does it mean? I'm fasting. He didn't offer you an apple. He didn't say he eat the older brother and fasting. He's swearing at you. I'm fasting in context means I'm fasting from evil speech. I will not talk because this is going to diminish my Alma bar. It's going to take away a lot of its reward.

01:12:36 --> 01:13:01

You're going to be left at the end with just starvation. You just starve yourself for a few hours. You did the obligation but you just stopped this if you have nothing. So we'd be very careful and understand that still on mobile and that we want Brothers and Sisters in Islam we ask Allah azza wa jal to grant us goodness and acceptance to ask him subhanho wa Taala to be still in his mercy and forgiveness upon upon us all. Your circle Mala Jorge la sallahu wa salam, O Allah Allah and Amina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine
