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

Bashar Assad Hanif is going to be tafsir to see it. He did it last year and it'll be continuing this year continuing this year inshallah Tada and then we'll be also having a purpose for prayer course by Chef Athene. We'll be covering the wisdoms behind the scenes of Salah and it'll be doing that in sha Allah. And God is aka Allah will be doing a Koran recital the same way that we had today with Mr. Malhotra Nasir, he'll be doing the same thing in sha Allah, where he recites and the people who are here recite with him. So that's just what we're going to some of the things that are happening during the month of Ramadan. Without further ado, I want to pass the mic over to Chef abou sama the

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

heavy

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

who is no stranger to this platform and hamdulillah Mala reward the chef

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

for the

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

mainland hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah he battle

00:00:59--> 00:01:11

one apologize for being late today but due to circumstances beyond my control, actually arrived here to the mischief Street from Heathrow Airport.

00:01:12--> 00:01:26

We went up with a group of 50 people or so to perform Umrah. And we were supposed to arrive scheduled to arrive in London at one o'clock which would have given me more than enough time to get home

00:01:27--> 00:01:33

and to get freshened up and to maybe get something to eat interest.

00:01:34--> 00:01:54

But when we left our hotel in Mecca at four o'clock AM Mecca time we arrived in Jeddah there was some big explosion, some oil refinery. So the traffic slowed down. And when we finally got to the airport, and we got everything checked in with our group,

00:01:55--> 00:02:02

the planes were delayed because there's so much smoke in the sky. So we wound up arriving late.

00:02:03--> 00:02:06

We dropped the brother off, and we sped here.

00:02:07--> 00:02:12

And when asked ask Allah to bless brother Sheffield, who navigated

00:02:13--> 00:02:33

this situation, and it was really thorough and getting us here, only 15 minutes late what I'm doing ly reason why I'm mentioning this to you is not because I want anybody to feel a think that we deserve applause. No, but because of what's going on today.

00:02:34--> 00:02:43

I think most of you probably heard of what happened to the brother in America to share the dying brava

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

Earth man farro

00:02:47--> 00:02:54

who's given down in San Diego, and his Tao is being accepted by many foreign white

00:02:56--> 00:03:10

people Christians Dawa to the youngsters in the universities, data to people who are ex prisoners, ex gangsters. All kinds of data was going on in San Diego.

00:03:11--> 00:03:31

I almost moved to San Diego, but it didn't work out. But I went there a few times. And I was super impressed with what they were doing. The point here is when I was in Mecca, and I got news of him getting stabbed, I left him a message I'm not going to say what I told him on that message. But I said to myself,

00:03:32--> 00:03:41

here's a brother who has been given dowry, he's been receiving a number of death threats by terrorists extremists.

00:03:43--> 00:03:51

But it didn't deter him and we ask Allah to give him a class and to divinely protect him. As Allah said in the Quran.

00:03:53--> 00:04:22

Whatever Allah azza wa jal writes for you, no one can hurt you. lenga seabin Illa marketable Lahu Lana, nothing is going to hurt anybody except will Allah has written in decreed. But the point here is that the brother got back into the ring. He didn't tap out. He didn't call it quits. He wasn't a punk. He wasn't scared. He got right back into the ring the next day

00:04:24--> 00:04:50

when I was in Medina and Mecca, and I give these glad tidings, I kept my head under the radar because I really want to meet up with a lot of people I want to focus on my own EBA and also I want to focus on my group. But I did have the occasion of meeting some of the Shabaab who was studying in Medina, and Mecca. And I say to our community, it should Puteaux

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

up here kulula hidden Minco by now we have a generation of youngsters like to share Earth man

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

Pharrell, like the brother, Sammy and seldom, like the brother, Abu Tamia, and other brothers who I met Medina and Mexican brothers, why No. People memorize the Quran. They're not like my generation of Muslims who went to Medina and we learned and I didn't know I leave that.

00:05:22--> 00:05:31

These brothers are memorizing Mattoon and they're memorizing Kira act. And in addition to that, they have a lot of activity in the shop.

00:05:33--> 00:06:12

I will Tamia specifically, it's going to come to my mistreating Sharma in leads on Friday to get the hold but and then do a program with me for my community. If you saw his schedule of what he's doing, and I'm just mentioning, it's from the Bab of just letting you know if you saw the schedule of what he has, you will say supine Allah. So I said to myself, I'm old school compared to those brothers. But I'm not going to let those brothers who shall not do the work by themselves because the sun is under threat. A selfie is under siege.

00:06:14--> 00:06:21

We can't even say Sanofi anymore, we have to be politically correct. But I say Kela

00:06:22--> 00:06:23

No way Jose.

00:06:24--> 00:06:40

The Suning Shala will continue to go forward. For many years now we've been off the square. For many years now. We've been preoccupied with each other people have politicized the dow of self here.

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

So now, it seems and it appears in sha Allah, that we have soldiers once again,

00:06:49--> 00:06:53

we're getting ready to get in the muck and mire of giving down.

00:06:55--> 00:07:42

I suggest to those brothers and anyone who's hearing my voice, that we all have a role to play. And we should all open up our masajid to one another. So that we can regroup from all of the nonsense and a mess that has happened over the past, shakes politicizing our dollar. And I as an African American who's worried about my mother and my father dying on elements of it in Islam, my people, black lives matter. My people in America need to hear about this down in my bar and Mubaraka. But I'm going to embrace and take on the battles in the fight of a shift somewhere here somewhere there, as opposed to being busy with calling the people to a towhee than the sooner.

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

So if that brother shift, Earth man Pharaoh can get back in the ring the next day and start giving down and these other brothers have been preoccupy. You think I'm just going to leave back in the cut.

00:07:59--> 00:08:01

And just sit in the shade.

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

drinking lemonade

00:08:06--> 00:08:07

and just relaxing?

00:08:08--> 00:08:09

No,

00:08:10--> 00:08:19

I want to give a call out to any and everybody who cares about the Sunette cares about the spread of a toe heat.

00:08:20--> 00:08:23

To put aside all of this madness,

00:08:25--> 00:08:49

we need a lot of soldiers in the work. Because the people who are against Ellis Lam who are trying to change Islam, they don't sleep, they're not sleeping. So there's no time for us to be stuck on stupid, and the B group of people who are fighting each other over some problems that are political, they have nothing to do with us.

00:08:51--> 00:09:10

So with that Sharla for the next 30 minutes I had an hour ago, but they gave me 30 minutes. Now I'll take these 30 minutes to say what I have to say about today's lecture, which is the ease of Ellis lab through the teachings of Ramadan.

00:09:12--> 00:09:27

Anybody who has eyes and has an intellect can see just in the legislation of Ramadan and what we do and what we don't do. That Ellis lamb is a religion that makes things easy for people. Not a Religion of hatred.

00:09:28--> 00:09:50

Muslims hating one another, not being able to cooperate with one another. I look at this audience the vast majority of the people in this audience are real young people. Chabad teenagers, people in their early 20s. But I know for a fact Oh boy, I don't know most of you all have almost all of us have issues with other Muslims at a time when

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

there is no time for that to be distracted fighting people who share your very blood, the blood that's circulating in your veins.

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

And we have veins is the same. And you guys can't get along over some nonsense.

00:10:07--> 00:10:18

And this religion has set for us the blueprint about how to solve problems, and has given us instructions about what's acceptable and not acceptable.

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

Profit to told us Sutton Allahu alayhi wa sallam now your Hello,

00:10:24--> 00:11:05

the Muslim and you may not be knocking Yeoman authoring yet your aha folk the ferati lady, now permissible for a believer who believes Muslim who believes in love last day. If you believe in Allah and the Last Day, it's not permissible for you to boycott your brother for more than three days, three nights been boycotting people for 10 years. 15 years, that people aren't the same thing. It's just that the chef is the common denominator that creates animosity, or in the case of the people in the audience is the dunion things that keep us disconnected from our relatives.

00:11:07--> 00:11:09

So the ease of Ellis LAN

00:11:11--> 00:11:34

comes as a very clear and concise lesson in the way Ramadan is. And I have to mention is, and I'm glad it came to my attention. When I accepted Islam in 1986, I accepted slam in the blessing month of Ramadan. And I came this close to a past dating almost left Islam.

00:11:35--> 00:11:39

The reason why I almost left Islam was because of [???] for Muslims.

00:11:41--> 00:11:59

I was in a place I didn't know what Islam was. And they knew and it was Ramadan. So they told me I had to fast they were not even fasting. But I was ready to make a change in my life. I started fast, and they told me I had to fast from Salatin Fajr all the way to surrounding Asia.

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

And I never fasted in my life.

00:12:03--> 00:12:21

And it was the summer months in 1986, when I became a Muslim, at 19 hours of fasting and the food that I had, I had to save it and eat it at nighttime. The food was like a brick by the time it was time to eat it. It was like a brick.

00:12:22--> 00:13:13

So I fasted 18 hours. And then I had to eat the brick. I said what kind of religion is this? I said, I'm killing it here this thing is crazy. And a facet of my life. But by the ROM of Allah, Eliza Joe protected me and I stayed on the religion. But I came this close to a prostate in because the shudder that came as a result of not understanding this lamb with those people without community. So young people, we want to go to the London London Bridge and stab people and kill people and you want to go to Syria, and you want to do all of this nonsense. You give a bad image of what our religion is. And you do nothing to help your life. I sit here and I bite my tongue for no one and I tell you,

00:13:13--> 00:13:36

let's hold on to the religion without any apologies. Like it who likes it, hate to hate it. But when you learn your religion, you learn how to navigate. When you don't know your religion. You do things that you think you're doing the right thing, but in fact, you're hurting this land. And it happened with some of the companions that people came to perform Hajj.

00:13:38--> 00:13:44

They came to perform hajj, the kuffaar were performing Hajj, when the Muslims were in Mecca, and they were weak and oppress.

00:13:46--> 00:14:07

And it was a practice of the five Quraysh to do Hajj without their weapons. So the Muslims who were being persecuted say Yato, Sula, they don't have their weapons. It's an even playing field now. Let's get them. Let's get them Rasul. Allah told the people some Lola and why he was Salah was in sin with a religion like that.

00:14:08--> 00:14:15

If we go and kill those pilgrims, did you know what the people the Arabs of the Arabian peninsula are going to say?

00:14:16--> 00:14:22

The same thing that these non Muslims are going to say, when we behave in a way that's not appropriate.

00:14:24--> 00:14:28

So HC my hikma hikma putting things in the right place.

00:14:29--> 00:14:49

Knowing when to be soft and knowing when to be strong, and know when to fall back to the black. This is what we need. And that comes when you guys start learning your religion. Not on your own, not being keyboard warriors, but connecting with people who already know the religion.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

So today we're going to talk about SHA Eliza gel, the ease of Ellis Lang and how it comes through in the way that

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

Ramadan has been legislated. First thing I want to mention very quickly in sha Allah point number one is

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

look at the names of Allah azza wa jal

00:15:12--> 00:15:24

and learn about the Tawheed of Allah's names in his attributes one of the most important aspects of this religion Tauheed Esma will see that

00:15:25--> 00:15:33

from the names of Allah, you understand that our religion is a religion of ease. His name is Eros man Rahim.

00:15:35--> 00:15:44

And every soul of the Quran begins with those two names. Except Surah Al Bara Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.

00:15:45--> 00:16:04

Allah's name is Elijah Do we have a Lord who loves He loves that you take advantage of the Rosa, the concession you can't pray standing up, pray sitting down. You an old person SNAM takes that into consideration

00:16:06--> 00:16:06

and will do

00:16:08--> 00:16:34

we have a loving God. Allah mentioned in the Quran will allow him smell Hosanna for the row who dia with vero levena You'll hear UniFi as smell E to Allah belong all of the beautiful names so make dua to Allah by those names. And leave those people in abandon them. Those people make it hide in the names of Allah and the attributes of Allah.

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

From Allah as names as he is a Halim

00:16:39--> 00:16:55

Allah thief, he's gentle, doesn't want to just destroy people just to destroy you, wants to give you mental problems, test trials and tribulations so that you are wretched human being pay in yourself and hate in society.

00:16:56--> 00:17:06

You see, life is dark. Everything is the glass is half empty. Your Lord is Halim. He is Latif ginto

00:17:08--> 00:17:32

ELIZA gel is Olafur in the month of Ramadan, later to Qatar our mother I should say yeah rasool Allah was the best dog later to Qatar if I get it. He said you should say Allah who met in the car foon to hit bois for five when me faster dua for later to Qatar. Oh Allah you pardon you love department so pardon me for the mistakes that I need.

00:17:33--> 00:17:57

Allah mentioned no Quran, lo you will love NAS be will meet him. Ma Tara quali Herman button when I can use a Heroku in an excellent musoma. If Allah were to take every person in this room, and hold him responsible for his oppression, Allah wouldn't leave a single person on the face of the earth. Not anyone in this room.

00:17:58--> 00:18:09

And I will be the first one. But he gives them respite to a particular day, how you're going to give up and be rough on yourself and rough on other people, and your Lord is gentle.

00:18:12--> 00:18:19

So from his names, we know that he subhanaw taala is a Lord who wants to make things easy for you.

00:18:21--> 00:19:10

We have to shift I don't have enough time. Second point I want to mention the fact that there are a number of characteristics of the Nebby SallAllahu Sallam similar to that Allah said about Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam my son Naka in Ramadan, Milan, me your Rama yeah Mohammed to the people. You are Rama to the elderly your Rama to the youngsters. You are Rama to the Shabaab you are Rama to the women. You are writing it to kuffaar you're writing it to animals. Yeah. I'm not in need of non Muslims telling me about animal rights. The Messenger of Allah told me that so Lola who it was son, he's a Rama. So when he legislates in this religion, the hijab, Jew, bad knees, cop, the

00:19:10--> 00:19:59

young, whatever, he's legislating that from a place of Rama for the people, not to make things difficult for you, when he legislate. plural marriage is from a place of wisdom and Rama. It's not against you, sister. It's not against your father, your mother. Whatever the legislation in Islam is. Allah describe the prophet in the Quran, our be our Rosu SallAllahu sallam. He said in the Quran that Ajah a camera zoom in and physical azizan la Hema and tomb. Hurry Sunan a compelling meaning are all for whom that has come to you people a messenger from yourselves. It bothers him. It makes him sad that any hardship should be followed.

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

Any one of you?

00:20:02--> 00:20:23

He is really trying how to use. He's trying to help you. Allah said russula is Raouf Rahim. Allah His name is a roof, Rahim, a roof is the one who's Jim to merciful. He said that's how the Prophet was Allah what He said.

00:20:24--> 00:20:47

Next issue as it relates to the Mercia. And the easy of this religion is what Allah mentioned is so many I add about how he has legislated in this religion where there's a lot what is the cut with his Ramadan with his Hajj whatever the case is. Allah said in those ayat of fasting you really do love who become useless.

00:20:48--> 00:21:19

When are you ready to become Rasul? Allah once ease for you people he didn't legislate Ramadan so that as it's getting close, we are saying oh no, it's so difficult. Oh, Ramadan I'm going to pass state because Ramadan is tough. No, I'm gonna pass state because the Muslims may Ramadan tough. gonna pass state because my husband has his hands around my neck and the way he's dealing with me. And I'm a new Muslim. That's what's gonna make me a plastic, not the religion.

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

So some of you young people have friends, they're interested in Islam, and then they say Nah, I'm not gonna be a Muslim. Why should I be a Muslim?

00:21:29--> 00:21:46

Same thing that the Muslims are doing. I can do that. I'm doing that already. So he doesn't come to Islam not because Allah but because of the Muslims. You read Allah who become looser. Well, are you ready to become closer that I was revealed concerning fasting?

00:21:47--> 00:22:06

He mentioned another if you need to Lahu and you have full time income. Well hotel in San odighizuwa. Allah wants to make your burden light upon you. For verily mankind was creating Week. Week. He gets a job and the non Muslim says to him

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

leave your religion he said okay.

00:22:12--> 00:22:16

His job says to him, you can't go the Juma you can't pray he says okay.

00:22:17--> 00:22:39

I learned those people's situation. He knows that people are in situations where they are forced to do things. So when our religion what did he say? La you Calif Allahu nefs and Illa was, aha. Allah doesn't burden you beyond your ability. You can't do it. You can't fast. It doesn't make you fast.

00:22:40--> 00:22:44

People in our audience we know relatives are old.

00:22:45--> 00:22:53

They have fasting every Monday and Thursday to fasten and Ramadan. They fasten the fast of that ward at 70 years old. No.

00:22:55--> 00:23:00

We're going to tell those uncles and those relatives look you don't even have to come to the masjid.

00:23:02--> 00:23:20

So we have all of those I had of the Quran. Were my Giada lay comfy demon courage. Men letter A B Kumi Brahim. Allah didn't make any difficulty on you people in your deen. This is the middle of your father You brighten, know how rich

00:23:22--> 00:23:56

you know, the Christians and the Jews. They've been spoken about in detail in the Quran. And we make that dua every day, guide us to the Serrata. Mr. Team, not to the ones who Allah is angry with and those who work straight and we say I mean, well, one of the things they used to do is they used to do this asceticism, where they were fast Allah and they were hit themselves. Just recently in the newspaper here. There's a vicar who's very old. He's his 80s. He's in court right now.

00:23:58--> 00:24:51

Protecting a lady who was one of His followers, one of the members of his community. And he was persecuting that lady that's in the paper right now. The man was going to take her teeth out with pliers, told her she has to suffer in order to reach Jesus and reach Jenna, what statistic is in the papers right now? alum mentioned that in the Quran. robear neoteny Peder Ruha markertek na de him. That is a form of asceticism, that those people made up for themselves. Allah didn't write that for them. Uh, let him tell you to go into Zambia, and sit in the corner for hours talking about why they didn't tell you to do that. Allah told you to make vicar Yes. But he also told you get a job and

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

help yourself and help your family and help your community and be somebody.

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

That's the right man.

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

Have a listen and many many many I got for NMR in them I was to use raw in my house we use raw.

00:25:10--> 00:25:38

You got problems, those problems won't remain with you forever. Someone right now was under a lot of stress. I went to Mecca and Medina. I was so grateful so happy. I didn't have anything in my mind connected to this place where I was worried. You know, if you are worried anxiety, stress, you can go to Mecca and Medina. But after you finish what you're doing, you come to your hotel room every night. You're thinking about the problem messing your head.

00:25:39--> 00:26:06

I went there easy. And I came back from the lab easy. Someone is in this room right now. He has an issue now that he thinks about he said, Man, this is a problem. That thing gonna last with you forever. Allah doesn't allow it to last forever with every difficulty there is ease. So what's the point here? The point is those is all of them and many more they go to show we have a Lord who has fairing just Chintu

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

not going to be a person having problems forever.

00:26:12--> 00:26:52

Now we look at the a Hadith of the Prophet what can feel my he SallAllahu it was a meanie, a hadith Hadith warning us of being roughing tough on ourselves and rough and tough on other people in Ramadan and outside of Ramadan. This is a religion of ease. Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam on the days of their IED. after Ramadan. He let the Muslims play in the masjid he that his wife I issues a young girl looked at men who were playing with the spears and he encouraged the people to play and eat and he said that their Eve is the day of eating for us being happy and Mary buying gifts.

00:26:54--> 00:27:14

Some of us are we see in the day of eat is if someone says to you read Mubarak. Yes, the Companions didn't say that. They said the Cabal Allahu Minh. Now women come but someone says a Mubarak and he takes out a knife he takes out a sword figuratively and wants to chop your head off because you said read Mubarak.

00:27:17--> 00:27:27

yaqi there ie the Prophet said and he I am. Acklin was sure. These are the days of eating and drinking and being married.

00:27:28--> 00:28:09

Anyway, why didn't he let the Companions play in msgid he told the reason why. He said so that the yo hold and the Christians will know about Islam that I've been given he said salatu salam, and neighbor if to Bill Hanafy to somehow I've been sent with religion that makes things easy for the people. Gentle kind. We have celebrations with the celebrations always connected with La ilaha illa that's connected with sugar that connected with your mukaiyama it's not just having fun, and because life is not about fun.

00:28:10--> 00:28:45

When I'm doing your lottery Bula with Xena tune, what the fuck Rubina Kamata, Catherine, Phil Oh, lad, well, um, while the doing is a problem, but there are aspects of the doing that, okay, like getting married, and having children. If my little man who's here right now I'm shooting sha Allah shape what will happen if that little boy came to this room and started walking right now? I'm going to stop this talk and get up and pick my baby up and hug him and smell him? Because I haven't seen that dude in 10 days.

00:28:47--> 00:29:17

Those are the good things of the dunion. So the dad can't come into the house, he can smile. There's no love between brothers, or there's love between brothers and toleration between brothers. But when we go home, we're rough with our mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters, husbands and wives. When i Hola went out with a nebula. So if you want to know about the ease of SNAM, as it relates to the fasting of Ramadan, it is clear.

00:29:18--> 00:29:46

The Prophet says Allah who it was sending them one in this community and advising but Shirou when I attend a funeral as Cyril a sin what I cero he said to all of us, give people glad tidings and don't run them away from the Dean. Make things easy for the people and don't make things difficult for the people. Your baby is only six years old. Don't make them fast, the whole of Ramadan. Then on fast an hour, two or three let them fast on a weekend.

00:29:49--> 00:29:50

Take it easy,

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

like the Companions used to do with their children. They had them faston But they gave them baby dolls and toys to play with

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

Keep them preoccupied. And if they couldn't handle it, they didn't break their fast. They didn't punish the kid in the mud, wrestle with Islam, beating him up teaching them the Quran, making them hate Ramadan like those guys in that place where I went to where I found myself the institution of hard knocks and he told me I have to FAS from so that the federal to select Alicia in the summertime. Are you serious? That's what my son says. Are you serious?

00:30:35--> 00:31:08

messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam acts as companions. Do you people know who the Hellfire is haram upon? Do you know who the Hellfire is haram upon haram? They say who is it haram upon goddess hula? He said some Allah What are you sending them either couldn't be Hey, urine Leonin certainly in curry, but Hellfire is haram upon every person who is easy going. I'm a COBOL He gets along with people. And he's close and he deals with people is haram on him.

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

But what about that guy who's so intolerant? Person who who can't tolerate people? Judgmental? We all know that guy. We all know him.

00:31:21--> 00:32:04

You didn't pronounce a Salam aleykum correctly. Is it calm? Yo man back up and slow down and pump your brakes. And from the projects. I don't know what ane is for my Hamza, relax yourself. He's one of those guys makes us say I don't want to be around that guy. Because I'm afraid to say I sit down why they come to people. You know the African Americans in America we're now Muslims. They'll say to you, salaam aleikum brava salaam aleikum. That's how they say. What I'm gonna say it's not Salam. Aleikum is a Salam wa ala man, at least he's saying something that's a window of opportunity to give them dollar you can see that

00:32:05--> 00:32:17

Hellfire is haram on the one who was gin too easy, amicable, and he's close. He gets along with people. Oh, there's that father who's rough and tough.

00:32:18--> 00:32:20

He can sit down with his children

00:32:21--> 00:32:26

can sit down with his son 1617. They have nothing in common.

00:32:28--> 00:32:35

So we have a number of a Hadith from the prophets of Allah what He was sending them, telling us Don't be rough and tough.

00:32:36--> 00:33:25

Be pursues, gentle, easy and close proximity to people. We may Umrah and in the umbra, I kept telling the people, it's a perfect environment and opportunity to give dollar to people sometimes they don't wear hijab. Sometimes they don't pray. Sometimes they make an aura. The environment is conducive to dour. So do I get up there and start talking like a madman? No, you got to talk to the people in a way that they understand. A chef, an Benny Rama to lay I lay here that Tao that we learn from him. I don't like the Tao of the people can lay it and said I was said if he is stronger than el banni we say Kela that's not true. And Ben even basil's new thing mean that Tao and understand it

00:33:25--> 00:33:58

was Gentoo he used to say to the people heart appeal, lotta stuff. Taylor who be asylee become, the heart is heavy. When you have the heart you want to give it to people is heavy, it's not easy to embrace. For most people, men take the hop, you have to have a level of you know, radula to take the hump got to be a man to receive the heart. He said don't make the truth heavier. By having a bad method of relaying the truth.

00:33:59--> 00:34:18

That's for our sisters, that's for our brothers. That's for the mothers that's for the fathers. That's for the critiques of the Masjid. That's for the administration of the Masjid. That's for the item of the Quran. The Quran is the hook is heavy. You're gonna make a heavy on the child by beating the child

00:34:19--> 00:34:38

as him while you're going to make it heavy on the child as his mother. He has a full day at school, regular school and then after regular school, he has to go to the madressa and he never gets a chance to breathe. At least during the weekend. Take him to one of those spots and get him waffles and ice cream.

00:34:40--> 00:34:41

Get him a bike.

00:34:42--> 00:34:44

Praise him for what he did.

00:34:46--> 00:34:58

So there are many a hadith that come in this regard. The names of Allah Shan indicate He is Allah do da Nana Rahim Allah Halina Latif is Allahu He forgives and he loves to pot it

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

Prophet Muhammad was like that so Allah Allahu it was sending.

00:35:05--> 00:35:08

Those ayat of the Quran told you take it easy.

00:35:09--> 00:35:31

And then we have what we just mentioned, many, many Hadith. The Prophet mentions Allah Allah why he was sending them Makailah Rifkin fish, Shea Illa Zan Lizano gentleness was never put inside of something except that and made it beauty, beautiful, and roughness and toughness was never put inside of something, except that it made it ugly.

00:35:32--> 00:35:57

Be gentle yaki be raffia Take it easy, hierarchal. Matana de Roon Halycon Matana Tarun highlight Kalamata nut, their own Hadith, those were rough in tough will be destroyed, those are rough and tough will be destroyed. Those were rough and tough will be destroyed. I can't go through all of these it there are many, but we're going to shift in sha Allah.

00:35:58--> 00:35:59

But before doing that,

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

the Prophet says Allah Allah who it was setting him or his companions described them, they said, my whole Euro Rasulullah sallallahu it was setting them Bane a moraine. In the PA ESA Huma, the Messenger of Allah was never given a choice between two things, you're going to do this or that, whenever he gave you had a choice to do this or that he always chose the easiest of the two. The easiest of the two, not the most difficult of the two. That's the fifth of Islam. He always chose the easiest, always

00:36:39--> 00:37:16

a hadith meaning, but we have to go on Shama. And that's the name of that Allahu Taala has given him as he mentioned, for Bheema rock metal metal Llahi Lynn Taylor. Welcome to fervent volleyball cut reliever cult, lung folk do men hold it? Yeah, Muhammad. It was a Rama from Allah, that you Muhammad with gentlemen easy with them. Because if you were rough and tough with Abu Bakar, or my North man and alien races, companions, the men, the women, the Shabaab, if you were rough with them, you would have run them away from this religion. But Allah helped you to be like that.

00:37:17--> 00:37:41

Let's get into the essence of the topic. The next five minutes is Sharla. Rama Ramadan, look at the ease of Ellis lamb. Allah said in the Quran, yeah, una Vina Amman. kuti by the Kumu Siyam will come cootie by Adam Levine in public comme la la quinta de Pon. i Yeah, men do that.

00:37:42--> 00:37:55

Fasten is prescribed on you like it was prescribed to people before you in the hopes that you learned tequila. Allah said, and the fastest for a few days. 29 days 30 days. It's not for a whole year.

00:37:56--> 00:38:24

Now for 11 months straight. Some of us have just been sliding and gliding. No fast. That's not haram that you didn't fast. The day of our fat. You didn't fast Monday or Thursday through the whole year since Ramadan. You just fasted Ramadan, so he just was sliding and gliding. And now Ramadan is around the corner inshallah. No problem. So only for a few days. That's a wrap man.

00:38:26--> 00:38:35

Can you imagine if we had to fast for two months, three months, six months, that would have been rough and tough on us. We wouldn't have been able to do it, many of us.

00:38:36--> 00:39:16

So that is a sign. Ramadan is easy. Islam is easy. Another example of that is the Prophet used to PFASs SallAllahu wasallam. continuously without breaking his fats. It's called del Rizal. He will fast without breaking his fat. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday without breaking his fast when the Companions found that out, they started doing it. When he found out that they were doing he said don't do it. They said but you do it. He says of Allah who it was salam in ne any less took a Hey at a Deikun

00:39:18--> 00:39:38

a B to where you earn money rugby Are you stealing? He said I'm not like you people. I'm not like you people. I fast, consecutively, days upon days. But when I go to sleep, my Lord gives me food and my Lord gives me water that drink. You're not like that.

00:39:41--> 00:40:00

So that goes to show fasting consistent consistently without breaking your fast is from the Sunnah. But it's a sunnah that you can't do and I can do. Marian more than 140 women at the same time. It's a sooner but it's not the sooner that you and I can do

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

So they are the cylinders that we do and as soon as we don't do

00:40:05--> 00:40:41

but can you imagine? If we had to fast without breaking our fans, that's the Wrath of Allah. That's the ease of Elysa. You want to see another one? Prophet Muhammad when he used to fast Allah what He was sending them. And this is for the caveman from amongst us. We got cavemen, CRO magnon man, he's a caveman, rough and tough. He might as well be carrying one of those clubs because he's like that. No romance, no gentleness with his family. Probably Muhammad when he used to fast or the lady was sending them. Did you know that he would kiss his wives.

00:40:43--> 00:40:47

He would kiss his wives to show affection while he was fast in

00:40:49--> 00:40:57

just the kiss of affection. I'm going to MSG and Honey, I'll be right back. And he kisses wife. That's the sooner

00:40:59--> 00:41:16

as for the young brother, who got married right before Ramadan, and shot down, don't kiss your wife, man. You don't kiss your wife. I'm telling you don't kiss your wife. But the man has been married for men and he's been in it. Look at the gentleness and the ease of Alice lamb.

00:41:18--> 00:41:23

Another example of that is those people who are older in our community,

00:41:24--> 00:42:03

Allah revealed the eye yet and fast. And while I levena you to know who fit your tongue, skin, if a person is old 7075 8085. And he finds it difficult, fast, if he can fast and he can get through Ramadan. But after Ramadan, he is going to get sick. He's going to get sick. Unless you don't have to fast. You just feed a poor person for everyday you don't fast. He has diabetes. He has high blood pressure. He's going Sina he can fast because he's strong. He comes from the mountains have a shower

00:42:04--> 00:42:05

for an example.

00:42:07--> 00:42:18

He comes from somewhere in Afghanistan, for example. He comes from somewhere like bizarre. So he's a strong person. His environment made him strong.

00:42:19--> 00:42:50

He's been eating camels meat all his life, that lane is strong. He didn't eat this poison of what we be eating, processed food. He's strong. He can fast, but fast and it's going to do what to him. It's going to cause him to become sick. He doesn't have to fast at that age, although he can do it. If he's going to harm him. He doesn't have to do it. But what he does is he feeds a poor person. That's the ease of Islam.

00:42:52--> 00:43:00

From the ease of Islam from fasting is the so whole what the agents call the salary. The so hold on the Iftar

00:43:02--> 00:43:17

prophets Allah said, I'm told this OMA Soeharto for NFV Baraka take the morning breakfast before you fast. Why? Because if you eat in the morning before Frederick comes in, that it gives you some fuel to deal with part of the day.

00:43:19--> 00:43:38

But what do we do? You guys are going to get the calendar that says you should take your so Huria salary an hour before Fajr just so that you'll be sure you didn't go past the time. So you ate an hour before the time. That's against the ease of Islam. That's against the ease.

00:43:39--> 00:43:59

He says Allah while he was sending them, if one of you is taking your so whore, and you have the cup in your hand, and the event goes off while you do it, he said go ahead and finish what you had. Don't put it down. Throw it away. Leave it for later. He said go ahead and finish it. And the event is going on

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

as the wrath of the newbie of Islam, so Allah What are you sending them? As for the Iftar he said that the prophet in the messages will order all of them when they pray, they should hold their hands like this and salah. And when it comes to the so whore, they should make it as close to fetch as possible. And when it comes to breaking their fast, they should break their fast immediately. As soon as they hear that, then oh, they break their fast

00:44:30--> 00:44:35

before he even gets out Akbar when he says oh, he's breaking his fast.

00:44:37--> 00:44:44

But what do we do? The more evidence there Allahu Akbar, Allah Allahu Akbar. And this brother is like this.

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

making dua do is good. But that's against the Sunnah right there. And that's not consistent with the ease of fasting and the legislation of ease, break your fats, and then make

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

do odd and you'll be able to combine all of that hair without going against the Sunette

00:45:06--> 00:45:42

Abdulahi my school used to tell the people follow the Sunnah it be all when I attempted to follow the Sunnah and don't innovate. I only have a few more whining we're going to get out each Shala from the ease that we've seen in our religion, from the lessons of fasting is the fact that the prophets Allah, Allah, what He said to him said, if one of you is fasting, and you accidentally forgetting you eat and you drink, don't worry about it. Allow me to drink and Allah made you eat, you know, that could have went against you.

00:45:43--> 00:46:17

That could have been a legislative act where you ate and you drink in the daytime and Ramadan. So now you have to fast two months consecutively for breaking your fats. No you forgot. And in our religion we say Rabbana Allah to our inner Sina our Donna, forgive us if we forget or we make a mistake. If you drink or he accidentally you will shopping. The wife is shopping. She picked something up to taste it. She tasted thing and someone said oh Naomi, you're fasting. You'll have to take that out and throw it away. Just eat it.

00:46:18--> 00:46:19

It's the ram of Allah.

00:46:21--> 00:46:25

The last two that I want to meet you to shine lives which is

00:46:27--> 00:46:33

what is not from the Rama was not from the Rockman I'm done here in sha Allah is listen.

00:46:34--> 00:47:16

I give Dawa. I'm the Imam of the Masjid. I cooperate with green lane and other ministers here I want to say to all messages and all people who are responsible for messages and administration. Prophet Muhammad told us some Allah why did you send him anyone who takes responsibility of the affairs for the Muslims and he's roughing tough with them. Allah will be rough and tough you make dua that Allah is rough and tough on you. You're responsible for the affairs of the Muslim, take it easy. You're the imam in the Ummah, the Kuma NAS fell, you have fifth fenomen Worre II, a severe of dive and married with all Hajin if any of you lead the people in this salah, make your Salaat quick because

00:47:16--> 00:47:59

behind you is old people, sick people, someone has something to do got to go to work. So listen, was not easy is on the 27th night of Ramadan. It could be later to Qatar it could be some of the companions swore that it's not illegal to Qatar, and I was listening to the talk of Abu Sohaib on the way from the airport. I was super motivated by that talk. That was a good talk. Sleepover took me and next thing I knew I was asleep. I was I couldn't keep listening to it. But the beginning of that talk. I said I have to go back and listen to that. He was rolling. He was cooking with oil. That was a nice talk. And he mentioned about the Quran being revealed on the 24th night of Ramadan.

00:47:59--> 00:48:13

I don't know if anybody asked a question. But I thought the Quran was revealed and the iron knights later to Qatar. He used that hadith about how the Torah angels were born and cornersville in the month of Ramadan. Then anybody asked that question

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

anyway.

00:48:17--> 00:49:07

On the 27th night, and the Imam is making this long do out of keynote. This is not easy. So not easy, because the people in the line and their feet are hurting and the legs are burning. We've been fasting all month. 2627 days we've been fasting. And now we pray. And you've given us this long Diwan, waiting listening to that dua. We've lived thinking about our feet. We think about our legs and our knees. That's what we're thinking about. You find one guy putting them foot down putting the other foot down and saying I mean one is looking for bogeys the other one looking around devil. That is no you got to take it easy 27th night. They share the man the teacher every Salaat of tearaway,

00:49:07--> 00:49:13

he has to talk after four rockets every night. I have to talk every night. Give the people a break.

00:49:14--> 00:49:24

Give the people a break on the 27th night we want to get money want to get money so we asked for the money two hours no extra money two hours

00:49:25--> 00:49:26

Take it easy.

00:49:29--> 00:49:41

From what we have to take it easy with the people on in the month of Ramadan is as well. We don't have to use read a whole Jews of the Quran. Allah mentioned the crown chakra Mateja silica

00:49:42--> 00:49:59

mineral Quran read what is easy for you. Now if this mischief one example of that mystery they want to use a read the whole Jews no problem. You don't have to come here. So if the masjid decides to do that, don't come to the masjid and say why you guys make it tough on people.

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

No, don't do that you just go to another masjid. And I am with that, Mr. Rudd, the Alignable when he saw the Muslims, and all of those groups making the salaat and it was at the live, and then he put them on one reader, that one reader, he would read long, he gave another group of people, the intermediate people the meeting, he gave them another Imam so that he could read in the middle and then he gave a third group of people another imam who read short a little so that everybody can have his choice from the Rama of Islam that we've seen Ramadan, you can shorten your prayer you can combine your you don't have to fast when you're traveling.

00:50:45--> 00:51:21

So brothers in shot Elijah gentle take the overall pitch of the lesson and the overall pitch of the lesson as we prepare for Ramadan is take it easy in your religion and take it easy on yourself and take it easy with the people around you. You're in a household where the people are not practicing or the people are on innovation. And you realize assume that you know what it is. Take it easy with the people take it easy, so kinda kolomela behind the car, while shadowing ina Illa and a stock Furukawa to make was sent out by the camera to lay over the cattle and my available
