It's been just about a week since the end of the month of Ramadan, and Alonzo which are blisters to see out this month of Ramadan that just passed and risk of loss of Hannah Horton on this day of Joomla added a large social acceptable good deeds from this month of Ramadan. There are large social mixes from amongst those who earned his forgiveness and his mercy throughout the month of Ramadan. And Allah mixes from amongst those who will live to see and benefit for many more Ramadan to come.

00:01:49--> 00:02:31

One of the things that we all notice and that we all see a week after Ramadan passes is the contrast between ourselves over a week ago in the month of Ramadan, and how we are today. The difference in terms of our acts of worship, the difference in terms of the time and the concentration and the focus that we had upon our religion. In the month of Ramadan, we had so much time and so much focus towards Allah subhanho wa Taala, we made time, the 24 hour clock in the day in the night, it's the same time. It's the same clock, we had the same chores and responsibilities. But we made that extra effort and time in the month of Ramadan. But as soon as that trumpington announcement of read was

00:02:31--> 00:03:12

made, we found that we went back to our normal sounds, we found that it wasn't the same. And that's normal, to a large part an extent. But it's not just the first time that it's happened. It happens each and every single year. And it's not just in the month of Ramadan. But that there are other seasons and times within our life when we have that extra drive. And that extra urgency or extra sense of determination. Perhaps it's when we go for lunch. Or perhaps it's on the day of our offer for those of us that don't go and perform Hajj. We have those seasons and those times in the year. But as soon as those seasons, those months, those days elapse, we go back to our normal songs. And

00:03:12--> 00:03:56

one of the reasons for that is our mindset, the way that we think, and the way that we deal with the seasons of worship. You see, Islam is a marathon. It's not a sprint. It's like the 100 meter race. Those of us that spend all of our time and all of our energy in the month of Ramadan and we run up flat, often even before the month finishes. Within the first week, the first 10 days of Ramadan, the first half of the month, were done and misspent because we thought that it was the 100 meter sprint, whereas Islam in reality is a marathon, a loss of Hannah Hotel in the corner and he tells us that this religion this life is a race, but he doesn't tell us what type of race it is a loss of Dionysus

00:03:56--> 00:04:42

servio a llama filati Mira become legitimate in the summer you will read that we live in a man will be la he was on a race with one another, towards the forgiveness of your Lord and towards gender power dies, the width of which is like the heavens and the earth. It has been prepared for those who believe in Alon believe in his messengers. That race isn't just a race for the month in the year. It's a race that lasts throughout the lifetime. And so there is a difference between the two between the person who trains and Wednesdays and prepares themselves for the 100 meter sprint. As for the one who trains themselves and prepares themselves for a 26 mile marathon, the sprint racer, they're

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

looking for a certain set of skills. They have priorities that they need to work on. for them. It's all about agility and speed and pace is about how quickly they will start because that race only lasts for 10 1520 seconds. It's done after those 1015 seconds

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

Whereas the marathon runner, that person is someone who's looking for a completely different set of skills for them is what's so important about technique. It's not so important how quickly they start from the starting blocks. for them. It's about endurance. For them, it's about stamina. For them, they know that it's not about 1520 seconds their race is going to take 246 810 hours before they reach that finishing line. And yes, there are times when the marathon one there has to sprint, when they have to race where they have to overtake people, but they need to make sure that their body can last for the long haul for that eight hour slug, the 26 mile marathon. And that is what our religion

00:05:42--> 00:06:23

is. It's not just about those moments like Ramadan, those days like autofill Ashura, those few weeks when you go for a meal, you go for Hajj, Islam is about the long haul. And so we often a soul spent out by the end of Ramadan, that for the rest of the year, those 11 months for the rest of the year, we find that there's nothing left. And then we just about ready ourselves psych ourselves up for the next Ramadan to come. And that's a problem in the way that we approach our worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Without a doubt, Ramadan is a time when you should put in more effort, Hajj and Umrah Times and Seasons when you give more than normal. But the meaning of this region isn't that you

00:06:23--> 00:07:01

focus so much on those periods and seasons, that you don't do anything outside of them. Or that you go back to such a state that you don't feel that you have any motivation or energy to worship a large religion for the rest of the larger world tells us when he raised when we in that verse of racing, when we're meant to compete and race towards his forgiveness, a law says the only comfortable law you t minissha that is the boundary of Allah He bestows whomsoever He wills. Not every single person is a marathon runner. Not all of us have the ability, the stamina, the endurance, to run a marathon. That's one of the blessings that Allah bestows. But it's something

00:07:01--> 00:07:43

that we need to work on those sets of skills in June. It's the stamina, understanding that we have not just a few weeks to worship Allah, but that we need to continue worshiping a larger region after those months and those seasons elapse. So I want to bring to inshallah tada in this book by three points. Three things that we can do to help build up our insurance, our stamina, to worship Allah azza wa jal for the rest of the three things that if we focus on inshallah, to Allah, we can take what we had in the month of Ramadan, and take it forward for the rest of the year. The first point is look for that which Alonzo Virgil has made easy for you. Find your niche when it comes to

00:07:43--> 00:08:25

worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala even in the month of Ramadan. Some of us excelled in the recitation of the Quran. Others from amongst us were good in charity. Others from amongst us were good when it came to prayer and standing or lightened taraweeh and rarely do you find those people who can combine and selling all of those things? Find what is easy for you. In the Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari the Prophet told us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mailloux for Kowloon Maja serani mahonia Paula, perform acts of worship act. For Indeed Allah has made easy for you that you have created for some people find it easy to worship Allah in one way. Other people find it easier to worship Allah

00:08:25--> 00:09:05

in a different way. A man once came to me man Malik Rahim, Allah tala, the famous, illustrious scholar of Islam, one of his contemporaries, another scholar from his time living in Medina. And he said to me, ma'am, Malik, I find that you busy yourself in teaching, and you don't make enough money bad. You don't worship a lot enough. And he's referring to the Noah Phil is not referring to the federal law, some prayers he's not referring to Zika or the month of Ramadan, he's referring to his now wife, if you're not a man of extensive rabada you spend your time busying yourself with teaching when the reading the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu. Earlier, he was sending an email, Malik

00:09:05--> 00:09:43

replied and he used this hadith. Every single person finds it easy for that which they were created. Even amongst the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The majority of them are like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who excelled in every single act and every single arena of worship. Very few from amongst them were like Abu Bakr radi, Allahu Allah and Omar, who were able to go and do and excel in all of those different parts of Nevada. Rather, what we find even amongst the companions, is that each one of them excelled in a certain area is they fulfill their obligations. Yes, they will still people who did more than they did the optional deeds, but they had

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

an area that was the niche in which they excelled. Holiday vanilla lead rhodiola Wang, the great illustrious military leader, the strategic the warrior of Islam, but when you come to look at Halima lead, as a scholar, as an arranger of Hadith that are

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

Only 730 rated in the six books of Hadith only seven. That doesn't mean he's got a great companion. But his niche his expertise his field of specialism was not the reading of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but then you have a Buhari rhodiola, who on another hand, when they're rated 1000s upon 1000s of Hadith, he only spent four years in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Holly who leads by contrast, is a companion who spent slightly longer but Abu huraira narrated more, but is not known for his jihad. He's not known for a person who was a warrior companions, it sounded different issues in different areas of the life and I'm not the only one whom

00:10:41--> 00:11:19

I was known for his following. I'm the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Abdullah bin Ibis is a scholar from amongst the companions as man. Abdul Rahman, radi Allahu anhu, among others, were known for their charity for the generosity for the kindness in the sada each one of them excelled in a different area. And that's something that we need to do. What is it that you find easy? When it comes to worshiping Allah azza wa jal after you fulfilled your obligations, you're doing what it is that a lovely eated upon you. What is it that Allah has made it easier for you is a charity you find easier to give than to spend? is it helping others being a source of good for the

00:11:19--> 00:11:59

community, helping those people who need your physical help, they need your advice, they need you to come and be by them. Or is it that you're a person who wants to spend your time with a person or a person have a bad day you find it easy to fast, and to pretend or feel, and to fast those optional days throughout the year. Whatever a large surgeon has made easy for you. That is what you should do and what you should excel in our model for colon Masami mahakala to what it is that a large surgeon has created you for made it easy for you to do. The second point that I want to bring to your attention is that when it comes to those acts of worship that we want to perform. In our study,

00:11:59--> 00:12:40

there is a thing called the rich, doing things in a gradual manner, taking things step by step. When you look at many of the legislations of Islam, many of the things that are not obligated or made haram upon us in this religion, they were done in a gradual way, step by step. We a lot of people who can listen to those narrations from amongst the companions or from amongst the scholars, that they would finish the Quran in Ramadan every single day once, whether they would spend the whole night awakened prayer, whether they would go home and you would give everything they own in charity, that takes a gradual step by step approach. It's not something easy to do takes time and it takes

00:12:40--> 00:13:20

effort and it takes years of determination and focus. When alaric xojo made the month of Ramadan obligatory it was done in stages to the beginning of Islam, and the Muslims use Tony fast as an obligation one or two days of the year. Today of Ashura, the 10th of Muharram, one or two days of the year, that was the only obligation of fasting in Islam. And then a Larson will reveal the verses of fasting and sort of Bukhara, but he gave the companions of choice if you want to fast the month of Ramadan. And if you don't want to feed for every single day, a poor person, they had the choice. Some of them fasted, some of them would feed the poor, and then only at the third stage, did Allah

00:13:20--> 00:14:03

make fasting Ramadan an obligation upon everyone, every evil Muslim must fast and only those who are unable to fast can feed the poor, was done in a gradual way to Sala I will prayer wasn't just obligated in that way all of a sudden altogether, shall do laguan herself says that at the beginning of Islam, Salah was two records for every obligatory prayer. every prayer was only two records. But then that was only made for the travelers, the travelers when you travel, you'll have your awesome Eurasia is two records. And as for the resident, it was increased to four done in a gradual way when it came to the prohibition of alcohol and wine. Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran, he says just

00:14:03--> 00:14:09

soluna can you know how many will miss it? Wolfie Hema is mon Kabir woman afternoon Enos with

00:14:10--> 00:14:52

Hema they asked you about gambling. They asked you about alcohol see to them that indeed within it is a great sin. There are benefits but the sin is greater than the benefits wasn't made haram the Muslims were just told spirit for you to leave. There is more harm than there is good. And then a second stage came when a large surgeon said yeah, you live in Amman lotta Prabhu salata into sakara. Don't approach the prayer whilst in a state of being drunk. If you drink you can't play. So now the Muslims Virgil lohana, Asan, Madrid, Russia, those five times during the day, they have to avoid alcohol. And it was only after that, that a large village had finally made it Haram in them and

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

humble me soon, unsolvable Islam. Rich some anomaly Shivani fetch Danny boo. These issues are the bump

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

nations of Satan, so stay away from them. Sweetheart I'm done in a gradual way. So likewise when it comes to us and worshiping Allah subhana wa tada after the month of Ramadan, the training that we receive them Ramadan. That's what we have to take forward to it in a gradual way. If you want to start fasting after the month of Ramadan stuffed with the 16th of Shinwell fast for example, today, we're short on the day route of try the three middle days of the month before you go to Monday and Thursdays. Because if you start trying to fast every week, day in day out, or the rest of the world, which is the best of fasts, that you fast one day and that you miss one day, you will last for a

00:15:38--> 00:16:17

week or two, and then you will stop those people who want to leave the Torah we pray Ramadan, continue with pm Elaine, it's difficult every single night to sleep, and then wake up and gamma Lee takes training. So the scholars would recommend that you pray at the emaline after select militia, the emaline starts after the rishad prayer. So start off after Isha master still awake, but you don't have to go to sleep and wake up, pray to records pray for cause whatever is easier for you. And then as your body becomes accustomed to it as you become accustomed to this form of worship. That's how you then go to the situation where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would sleep

00:16:17--> 00:16:55

and he would wake up and he would pray, and then he would rest again before he would stand up for solidly federal sadaqa giving charity. giving so much charity is difficult to do on a consistent basis. But if you train yourself once a month, only going to give five pounds, only going to give 10 pounds only once a month, I can do more. But I'm not going to because I want to make it a consistent I will gradually build myself up. And that's how you come closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. And that is why our Prophet told us to Allah while he was seldom a humble early in Allah at the woman, however, in the most beloved actions to a larger agenda are those which are consistent, even if they

00:16:55--> 00:17:33

are smaller few. It is more beloved to Allah, that you give five pounds a month, then you give 20 pounds once in a year and then you don't look at Southern again, that you pray only taraweeh in the month of Ramadan, but you never look at the AMA lane again, spirit for you to do something which is consistent and small, but on a regular basis. The third point that I want to bring to your attention, terms of building up our stamina and endurance for this marathon that is our life in trying to attain a loss forgiveness and the reward of Allah subhana wa tada is balance tawassul being balanced in the way that we approach our religion. Our Prophet told us a little while he was

00:17:33--> 00:17:44

selling the hadith of Abu huraira rhodiola one collected and Sal Buhari in Medina useful will a new shadow Dena hadden Illa Allah for Cirque de Du Bois de boo.

00:17:45--> 00:18:28

He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this religion is easy. It's easy. What Allah has made obligatory for you, is only small and few. The Bedouin man came and he said to the Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or messenger of Allah, I will offer my five Salas and I will fetch the month from a bond and I will give my sucker and I will perform a hedge, but I won't do anything more. And then he left. That's it. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said after the man had left a flower light in southern this man by a life is truthful in what he says he has gained success. What Allah has made obligatory is few and easy in Edina use of woolen Lucia Dena huddled in lava lava.

00:18:28--> 00:19:08

And no one makes Islam difficult amongst themselves or for themselves, except that it will overpower them or overcome them. Because Islam is a vast religion. It is an amazing religion, for the person was enjoyments and stamina to worship by day and by night, to fast one day off and one day on, to give all that they have inside of Islam comes under accommodates for that individual. Islam is easy, but if you want to make it difficult for yourself, it can become difficult. Like the companion who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said that I want to fast I can fast every day, the processor himself only faster three middle days. He said I can do more. He said fast Mondays and

00:19:08--> 00:19:45

Thursdays. He said I can do more. He said fast one day and then one day off. He said I can do more I can fast every day on messenger of Allah. He said there is no more. You fast one day you take one day off. That is the first of the Buddha he said, it is the best type of fasting that seemed companion when he became an old man. We can infirm and he's still had to fast the day in and day off, because that's the pledge that he made to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said that I regret that I didn't take the advice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made things easy for me, but I made it difficult for myself. And so when you make it difficult for yourself, then

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

this religion will overpower you. Find what is easy for you what is comfortable for you to perform. And once you reach that level of comfort, and you get into that habit, then you can push that boundary, then you do more than you excel for going from zero to one

00:20:00--> 00:20:13

100 that's extremely difficult and rarely does a person managed to achieve that. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, even when it comes to the Salah, telling us to be balanced, what our job is for lotic Allah to have it be her.

00:20:14--> 00:20:53

Daddy Casa de la, don't be overly loud in your Salah, no be too quiet brother take the middle path between the two. Because there are some people who when they play, they play and they play loud so that everyone can hear even though they're praying alone. And other people pray when they don't even move their lips. They're playing so silently that they don't even move their lips it is between those two extremes that Allah tells us to go. But it comes to South Dakota law says, Well, levena either and let me use 3412 What kind of a Nevada karma those human the spin and they give charity. They don't go to the extreme of giving everything away, not to the extreme or they become stingy and

00:20:53--> 00:21:31

miserly, don't give anything but rather the take the middle balance path between the two, really from amongst the companions was anyone given the permission like Abu Bakr rhodiola, one, to give all of their wealth and sadaqa few of those people were able to do so and manage that situation. For the rest of the companions don't do that. The companion said, O Messenger of Allah, I think that I'm about to die, I'm going to give all of my wealth away in charity. He said don't do so. He said O Messenger of Allah, Allah give two thirds of he said don't half of it in childhood, don't a third or messenger of Allah. He said the follow through was to luthier a third and then third is more than

00:21:31--> 00:22:09

enough in charity. It is better for you that you give that wealth to your children, to your family, then you leave them poor that they have to go and beg from others. That's the vast majority of people that we have to take balance in our religion, in the Hadith in the Muslim Ummah, Mohammed Rahim Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the head of Dena Mateen. For over a fee, he believed this religion is strong, it is strong, so be gentle upon yourself. Strong meaning that the more that you want to do is them gives you the scope to do so. If you want to be like those fellows used to travel 1000s of miles just to learn a single Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:22:09--> 00:22:49

sallam, although scholars would tie their hair to the ceiling, to the roof of their houses, so that it might if they became tired and they began to snooze and drowns. They had their head would be to be taken up by the by the string that was attached to their hair. Islam allows for that gives us the provision to do that. It is a strong religion, but you have to manage yourself over the feed if Be gentle with yourself. One of the scholars of the tambourine he said, in the commentary on this Hadith, he said, Well, actually the land of security by the tala don't make a dislike for yourself to worship Allah. You worship Allah so much for one day, two days a week. You spend so much time and

00:22:49--> 00:23:28

effort that you can have a look at the plan for the rest of the year. You cannot you can't motivate yourself to play an optional prayer for the rest of the year. You gave so much sewed up on the 27 nights of Ramadan. The idea of childhood in your mind isn't something which comes across it for the rest of the year. Don't make the worship of Allah, something which is disliked to you. Because you spent so much energy in a single goal that you have nothing left in the tank. Be gentle with yourself. Don't make it slight for yourself, that you should worship Allah subhanho wa Taala for in Melman bacta la Motta Bula. Veronica, because the one who breaks down on a journey, if you're

00:23:28--> 00:24:04

traveling to Manchester to London to Edinburgh, you break down on the journey, you have neither achieved your destination, nor is your car fit for purpose, didn't get where you want it to go, and you broke the vehicle that you were driving. That is the example of the one who spends all of their energy trying to do good. They don't reach their destination because they can't do anything for the rest of the year. And the little energy that they had, they didn't space out, they lost your role in a single goal in a simple blog. So I will religion tells us that Islam is America. Islam is something which takes time and perseverance takes stamina and endurance to achieve attaining a large

00:24:04--> 00:24:40

xeljanz mercy and forgiveness isn't something which you achieve in 10 1520 seconds. For the most part, it is something which takes time and effort and it takes motivation takes endurance and it takes stamina, as for lots of parallel data that it gives us the ability to worship him after Ramadan as we did in Ramadan. That alarm soldier gives us the endurance and the stamina to worship Him in a way that is pleasing to Him that Allah subhanaw taala mixes from amongst those people who are better after Ramadan than we were before Ramadan and during Ramadan and escolares Oh God makes his rebellion, his worship beloved to us throughout the whole year. So panicle lahoma will be handed

00:24:40--> 00:24:44

a shadow Allah, Allah Allah and as the Furukawa two boys

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. While earlier he was talking to a woman while that was still him at the Stephen King

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

Fira amudha one of the issues that our religion brings to our attention. One of the realities of our situation that Islam tells us is part of the normal daily routine of the Muslim is the fluctuation of Eman that we have seasons when our Eman is strong and it is high. And then we have times and places in the minority man becomes weaker and it becomes law that is part of everyday life. It is normal to be so. But the reason or the solution rather, to that issue is not why our demand has become low. But it is how do we get our demand to become strong again, to be like we were in Ramadan outside of Ramadan isn't going to be the case. It's not the case. We Excel more than Ramadan because

00:25:44--> 00:26:23

the rewards and virtues are greater, more on offer hedges attainment, we Excel and ombre. Because there are rewards and virtues that are on offer. There aren't an offer throughout the rest of the year or in the rest of the world. We Excel. But then after the period of expanding we form and the trick of Eman is to find how to make that demand stronger again in the hadith of humbler when Abu Bakr radi Allahu and passed by him, he saw that this companion looked to be distressed. He looked at me disturbed and perturbed, looked like he wasn't happy. So he said to him What's wrong or humble? and humble? I said naffaa humble a backer, backer humble and talking about himself humbler has

00:26:23--> 00:26:34

committed hypocrisy. You see, the companions weren't afraid to be self critical. to accuse yourself of hypocrisy is no small issue. hypocrisy is the worst of all states to be in

00:26:35--> 00:27:14

a large religion in the Quran. When he speaks about the hypocrisy. He says they have the worst of punishment. They're in the lowest depths of the fire of hell. But this is a companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being self critical. Self analytical knows that there's a problem and isn't afraid to seek help from others. naffaa handwara whale from Bala Abubakar de la one doesn't judge doesn't just race to judge him or condemn him, while humble Oh, what's wrong? He says, Oh Baba kuruman. I'm in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he speaks of a paradise and how fire who reminds me of a land the hereafter. He says if my Eman is so high, but then I leave

00:27:14--> 00:27:53

him and I go back to my family, my home my job. And I find that my Eman plummets. This is hypocrisy to me. Abu Bakar the last one, the greatest of this oma after our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the most learning and noble of the companions. You said, By Allah, I find what you find. I feel as you feel. So let us go and seek the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you find this an issue with your Eman. There's a problem doesn't seem right. Don't hide. Don't just think that it's something that you can't do anything about. Don't go and lock yourself away, find a solution, find a path to come closer to a large religion. It is a trap of shape and to think that there's no hope

00:27:54--> 00:28:31
