Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah leaving behind my brothers and sisters in Islam. There is one major matter that Allah subhanho wa Taala warned us about when we enter the sacred months and the sacred months are four, and we are currently in one of them and that is the month of Russia, which is two months before the month of Ramadan. One major Mata Allah azza wa jal mentioned that in the Quran, and he said to keep away from it, when Allah azza wa jal said fell out of limbo fee hidden and full circle notice, Allah azza wa jal did not say when the sacred months begin. Do not commit Zina, do not steal, do not lie. He didn't say all of this. He used a word much

00:00:48--> 00:01:34

more comprehensive, he said fell out of limbo fee hidden and forsaken. Do not wrong yourselves. Do not wrong yourselves. How does a person wrong himself by engaging in prohibitions by committing sins by rebelling against Allah and by leaving obligations? This is how a person wrongs himself Subhan Allah and notice the wording Allah azza wa jal Lee said, Do not run yourselves. He did not say you do not wrong Allah. Because primarily when you commit sins, you're ruining yourself, you're harming yourself, you are not harming Allah azza wa jal, the consequences of the sins are upon the sinner. The consequences of the sins are huge, they are immense, they are great, and you will feel them in

00:01:34--> 00:02:17

this life in the grief and the hereafter, if you do not stop and make Toba from your sins, so this is a huge matter to be committing a sin. During the sacred months, my brothers and sisters in Islam the world is ignorant about this. The world is heedless about this fact we need to preach and teach and make this world a worldwide message. People are supposed to respect and honor these months because Allah azza wa jal honored them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them a special status as opposed to the rest of the months, fell out of liming fee hidden and full second, imagine you went right next to the cupboard, and you wanted to sin right next to the cupboard. How huge is that? How

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

major is this? And so there are places that are secret, that the sin in them is great. And at the same time, there are times that are sacred. Just like the month of Russia. The one who sins in the month of Rajab is like someone who is sitting next to uncover next Kaaba is a secret holy place, and the month we're in is sacred holy month. So there's no difference. For we need to be aware of this fact. Stop the sins altogether. It is disrespectful to sin in these months. The month of Russia is supposed to be a month of preparation for Ramadan. It is a month of vicar to Allah subhanho wa Taala a month in where you're engaging your heart with Allah azza wa jal by preparing this heart with a

00:03:02--> 00:03:43

Tober you're moving away from sins. You're asking Allah for repentance asking Allah azza wa jal to give you the ability that you arrive to Ramadan and you're able to fast the Ramadan and benefit from Ramadan. So how silly does it sound for a person to continue singing in this month, and then in Shaban, and then when Ramadan comes? How is he going to be ready? How is the hub going to be ready? Imagine someone came to us Salette and he rushed he ran straight in and the prayer was already commencing and it began and he came in Allahu Akbar. And he was huffing and puffing. How is such a person going to achieve for sure. And in the same manner, if a person was sinning and continued to

00:03:43--> 00:04:24

sin, and then just entered Ramadan like this, hoping that he will repent them, he will reform in the first day, it's going to be very difficult, it's going to be very difficult. So now compare this to someone who came to the masjid early, sat down, heard the event, pray the Sunnah. Pray, read some Quran may die, and then proceed the follow up with the Imam. His heart is ready. It's prepared. He's able to attain who you are in his solid. And in the same manner, the one who began from now in the month of Rajab to start preparing for Ramadan, and in Shaban, he begins to increase his fasting. And in these months you begin to work on your heart. You cleanse the heart from sins, you make Toba and

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

it's still hard. You engage with new habits so that you're able to prepare yourself for Ramadan. Such a person when Ramadan begins. He's ready. His heart is ready to accept the mercy and the blessings and the forgiveness that are found in Ramadan. We ask Allah azza wa jal to keep us aware of this month we asked him subhanho wa Taala to forgive our sins, to cleanse our hearts and to prepare us but if Nila for Ramadan and ask him Subhanahu wa Taala to allow us to witness the days in the nights of Ramadan in the holy veliko called the rally or SallAllahu wasallam Opelika ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germaine
