Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah while a Li or Sufi shrine, my brothers and sisters in Islam, we know that one of the purposes of fasting is so that we attain taqwa, Allah azza wa jal he says in solothurn Baccarat yeah you have Latina Amano quotevalet como si m Kamakura Allah Latina, amicably Kumar La La Quinta Taku that all you who believe fasting has been prescribed upon you, just like it was prescribed upon those before you so that you may attain duck wire so that you may attain taqwa. Now, what is a duck What? A taqwa it's commonly translated as the fear of a lost pet who died. More specifically a taqwa is being aware and conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:00:44--> 00:01:29

And being aware of unconscious of a law, social means that you are a person who rushes to the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is basically what the what is the what is when a person rushes to implement a loss of power, who died his commandment, and at the same time, he he makes sure and he's aware of the prohibitions of laws origin, and he keeps away from the prohibitions of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if he was to fall in something, how long he's very quick to quickly get up and turn straight back to Allah subhanho wa Taala in October, and follow that bad deed with a good deed. This is exactly what the idea of taqwa is. 30 days of fasting, Ramadan is going to

00:01:29--> 00:01:38

increase our taqwa meaning it's going to increase our awareness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And how is that done? This is how it's done. Listen.

00:01:39--> 00:01:43

A fasting person, that fasts for 30 days,

00:01:45--> 00:01:55

is a person who is being trained to rush to the obedience of a loss of Hannah, who What are Ireland, there is no delaying in Ramadan. What do I mean by that?

00:01:56--> 00:02:03

That fasting begins from a beneficiary and ends at any limited.

00:02:04--> 00:02:52

So the first second, in which you and I are supposed to fast is at a then official, as soon as we hear the event being called Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, for them. And at that, second, you are supposed to stop eating and drinking and stop everything that you're doing that nullifies the first thing. You see, 30 days, you are being trained to rush to the obedience of a law, social, a lot of stories, you've told us fast at this very second, and you rush too fast at this very second. So you get up beforehand, you prepare what you need to prepare, so that when you hear that, you begin to have a loss of data by refraining from that which invalidates the fasting, you're being trained to

00:02:52--> 00:03:41

be alarmed. So if you're in the very first second of the commandment, and then you fast this entire day, until Muslims and as soon as monthly event is called, you are commanded by alarm social to break your fast, and this is why the person who breaks his fast as soon as event and Muslim is called, he earns much more reward than a person who delays breaking his fast delays by a minute, two minutes, 10 minutes until he prays selected Muslim. You know why? Because such a person rushed to a better last panel what Allah Allahu Akbar, there are some people that think if I delay breaking my fast, you know, let me be humbled a little bit. Let me starve for laws origin sake, for a few more

00:03:41--> 00:04:29

minutes, let's pray Muslim, and then let's break our fast, Heather. This person didn't rush to the obedience of alarm zone. As soon as Madiba then takes place and it's called the only one thing you're supposed to doing, or doing now, is that you rushed a bit last command. And that is by breaking your fast Allahu Akbar. So now when you do this for 30 days, you rush to begin the fasting on time. And you break your fast on time, you have been trained to worship a lot of surgeon and today I must commend them on time not to delay them. And this is what taqwa is, and this is what I'm about is going to be give us so that after Ramadan, you have this awareness that as soon as you hear

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

the call to any solid, you rush to be there, that as soon as you hear the call to any good you rush in fulfilling it. Anything that allows or wants from you, you quickly rush to do it. Don't delay it. Don't procrastinate. One more bond is going to train you in how to implement a lot of soldiers commands on time. So that after these 30 days of Ramadan, you rush to the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala long ago, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from among those

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

us who are first and foremost to rush to the obedience of his command in Hollywood Delhi Kolkata rollick sallallahu wasallam OData carlina Vina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi as many
