I crying on ramen? For
in silico, the scheme has been wrong about
the topic of tonight's lecture is welcoming Roma.
This is a topic which I think everyone's head over another project and the topic that we normally
go through whether the UK or any other powerful before will always be a lecture
about what's going on,
you will have to separate and we are in that we are out we have the same lecture the same,
the same topic being discussed over and over again, to speak in a different way, the topic will be the same.
And the interior will be the same condition for the most part.
So the problem isn't that we don't know how to recruit
young kids, but for the vast majority of us, we know how to work.
We know what it is about the vast majority of us, I would assume we even know the rulings of the fifth of Ramadan what to do in fasting what not to do. I think one of this is something which is well known. And so in my lecture today, I don't want to go over the same aspects that everyone said, I don't want to go and regurgitate that information. Again, even though we want to touch upon some of those same verses from the Koran, some of those similar headings from above, and some of our leading will send them at the point of touching over these ideas over and over again, is as a reminder, for myself, and then for my brothers and sisters. But what I want to do today in today's
lecture, is I want to give you a slightly different slant,
a different perspective, a different view on the law. And what I want you to do with today's lecture is you're going to have to use your imagination, they will actually have to use your brain that a large religion has given you that intellectual capacity that Allah has bestowed upon you, you never have to use it today does what I want you to do today. And throughout this lecture, and in the builder promo bar, and then in Ramadan itself. And then after Ramadan as well. I want you to live with Rama, to interrupt to
treat Ramadan, as a guest.
Treat Ramadan, as against a version of a bar is live.
In Sweden, you can see it can hear, and most importantly, you can speak it has a voice. I want you to interact and live with them.
Because what you find in the world open source something specific to Windsor or Canada or any other part of the world is the world. Wherever
the vast majority of Muslims, not just to hold on to with many different acts of worship, they have considered to be the token of
gold to someone attending the rest to pray five times a day is going to think it's the most difficult thing in the world. It was rather constellation investable five years ago, HD, like I'm going to be bogged down in research that have to go and
you would want that to anything that have to spend his money. And you're
going to have just like such an arduous journey, that for the vast majority of Muslims do pray often delayed until they're 40 5060
acts of worship have become burdens upon us they chose then those things that live in the back of our heads in the back of our mind that we would want to see again, we want to know
if we have a choice for love have given us a choice
to pass the robustness of to make how to learn catches up to you. There will be no punishment if you don't, the vast majority of those diploma wouldn't do it.
Am I wrong?
The vast majority of those things wouldn't do. If one choice to do is to play or to play this football perspective you can as well as many of them study around the world. If there wasn't other choices to give us a common one, the vast majority of Muslims wouldn't be upset. And so the reason for this is what is being considered these acts of worship to be an act of choice.
Because the gospel truly Western somebody who actually worship a lot enjoys worship
He has a sweet pasta he tastes within this month.
They taste the sweetness from this act of worship, just as our Prophet so love, he will send them when he will come to pray. What would he say to you, Lamar
allows to seek comfort and rest and contentment with the prep. This is someone who enjoys watching the performance of a Bob Marley, he will send it even though all of his sins are forgiven, his past, present future sins, all of them are forgiven, even so he will stand during the night and pray to a lot to the extent that you will have visitors on his feet. He would cry so profusely. So severely, that in the morning, I showed you a lot Miranda and his wife would say that I would touch the ground, and I do feel that was met with tears in the morning, it will still be away from his tears.
This is someone who enjoys watching. Who doesn't consider it to be an act of burden, who doesn't consider it to be a chore, who doesn't consider it to be a difficulty placed upon him. This is someone who enjoys worshiping Allah, because they know that the sweetest thing that a person can do to the dunya is to come closer to Allah to gain the pleasure of Allah. And it's because we don't have this mindset is because we don't treat Ramadan, for example, because it's the subject of tremendous lecture is because we don't treat our man in that same in that same mindset that Obama has become.
Everyone sitting here knows that.
Everyone sitting here knows that in Ramadan, Mubarak opens, the gates of Paradise closes the gates of fire. Everyone knows that in Ramadan, every single night, a lot of these people from the fire, everyone knows this. Everyone knows that after Ramadan, we should be better Muslims than we were before.
This isn't something new, like everyone knows. But the fact of the matter is the vast majority of us, none of us.
We know it, robot will come and go and nothing ruptured.
When we put Loma, I'm thirsty, and it would have been difficult. So we won't actually have been in
this is the way that we come to treat our acts of worship. This is the way we live with these acts of worship. So what I want you today to do is imagine robot as a guest.
Someone that lives someone that we
can see that can hear them speak. Because if something is limited, and if you interrupt and live with that thing, then you have to treat it in a certain way. Whereas if something which is dead, something which doesn't matter, then you can ignore it and neglected and tick the box and move on. Work at something that's limited, that if you had a guest that came to your house to stay,
reading, seeing hearing speaking, you can't just ignore
them outside of the garden shed. And leave them there for a week and then come back later when
you need to interrupt.
And so that's what I want you to do with robots, live with robots interact with robots. If former God came upon us today, imagine brocco bomb came from a faraway land. And by the way, oh my god.
How many times have you seen Muslims must give every single year since the time of the Prophet sallallaahu army was pro 1400 years Ramadan, Muslims fast. It has seen the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passing the companions on the alarm. The followers of Islam. There are still Muslims. We said the Arabian house was in Pakistan and India does Muslims in Indonesia, Muslims in Canada and the US and UK, all of them.
Imagine if one was to come to you today, right here in Windsor, Ontario.
To come to you as a guest. what people say about us,
about us as individuals, about us as a community.
That fasts together that prays together in the local Ramadan, that research for us together in the month of Ramadan. What would from a conversation about imagined robot had a voice box? It could articulate his thoughts. It could speak to you let me
be very frank, robot. Most impressive things. They wouldn't make things appear nicer than they are. They will tell us the truth that it would be glitchy
would rather not say that. We are like those people that are watching
when he says your
cookie barreling to snap comm I'll put the matter in, either in public.
Or you believe fasting is prescribed for you, just as it was prescribed for those who came before you so that you may increase in height increases?
Would Ramadan come and apply the statement to us with Ramadan see us as individual Muslims, who first year in Indiana. And let's be very frank and truthful. There are many people sitting here today that I've seen on board for decades of Ramadan comes to us every single year, this child will even try to pass in the month of Ramadan even if it's only half a day already 20 years.
What would you say to us? This is first of all to us. When it
comes, we increase in demand, we see that Anwar is the turning point in our life, so that we're better Muslims in the form of Han, then we will be pulling them apart. Is this what robot would say about us? But what we can say about us, just as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that perhaps the person will pass, but the only thing that they will gain is from the answers
The rubberband comes upon us as we are and the only thing we gain is
just the rugby players come upon us every single year. And the only thing we gain is fatigue and fibers. How many people know about an already you admit the most insidious, the fastest he
is going to be terrible, right? It's going to be between 17 and 18 hour long tasks. And this is what other worried about. This is our preparation for a model. We want to see the timetable to see exactly how long this is going to be. What time is it going to stop? What time is it going to finish? What time is when are we going to get some sleep?
How are we going to make dinner for our friends in this month? How are we going to schedule our advisors?
This is the way people love you they will come to the turabian route and more than once the demand impacts. Why is the note taking so long?
Why is it taking so long this recitation is finished.
This is the way many people talk. And it's because they don't live.
They don't see it as an honorable guests that has come only once a year. And perhaps they'll never come back again.
So from optical systems only gain from that
is this our version of custom
fatigue fibers. And this is why if this is the case and this is why Brahma Lord comes upon us every single year, and we can
the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they would say that if Ramadan came upon us, we would make two to six months,
six months from the beginning of Ramadan, for six months, they will make dua that Allah accepts the actions within
six months of the year, they will constantly make dua to Allah that the actions that they performed in Ramadan were accepted in the sight of Allah. And then for the remaining six months of the year, they will make logical law that allows them to see another.
This is the status of Ramadan with someone who loves
someone who is wanting to eat from someone that monitors the other one is a guest that will come and perhaps he will never return again. Perhaps he will never see Ramadan.
Ramadan is such an amazing experience. It is something that should affect the whole community. This is the month that the Muslims should be writing to each other. The Muslims are the people who came out to preach when it should increase
or decrease. People should enjoy worshiping.
God is the reign of the Muslims. The form of
Ramadan would say to us that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once descended the minimum and he said mean three times without any reason. Is that?
What is it that you said? You said
no more when
that's all he said. So the
veteran DGP came upon me and he made three drives and he said to me after each one say I mean so I said Tommy
for almost two hours, was that you said?
The one that Ramadan will come upon them, if they cannot have their sins forgiven, then May Allah distance them from his Muslim say, I mean, so the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said
is this what Ramadan would apply to us? If Ramadan? Is Ramadan speak from a model enter upon us. Imagine the propaganda came in this country this year. What What do you see from our action?
What do we do expert in Ramadan? Other than the first thing that we do? And maybe the
recycle that you mean? What are the acts of worship to do that was closer to a law? That came the pressure of a law that guarantee that
will free us from this? how can how can we buy our freedom and our salvation?
How can we buy
because this is what it is we need to borrow our safety from the buyer and to buy our safety, you know, paid in dollars, or in pounds, you pay with Demand Action.
This is how you want to see. And so what do we do?
If Ramadan came upon us, and he was to compare us, as Muslims to pass to the companions
to the west?
And to those generations that lived in the past? What would he see?
Would he see that we're just as good as them to better who would you see that from a non
of what are less far inferior in terms of worship, there was not as in the past the idea of brothers and sisters, but when the month of Ramadan came upon them, they will close the books of Friday. And the writing of the prophets of Allah
is one of the most powerful things you can do to remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just stuck in his life. And he said that he mathematic another close them.
And they will say
this is the month of obata.
this is the month in which we recycle.
Will they be like those close to the month of Ramadan come upon them. And they would finish the Quran every single month, the recitation of the Quran, or every three months, every five months or every seven months, for all the Muslims that struggle to finish the whole Quran even Once
the economy finished
the call you can attend every single night to throw me
into many mysteries that I don't know about this one, but many messages where I come from in the beginning of Ramadan, the mosques of
the first month
and then the mosques will decrease the number
and so on the economy will come and it will be like Russia where there's not that many people. And the Muslims will decrease and decrease until it comes to the 27. And then they will return 2728
This is how Muslims are.
So is this the way that we treat our guests from Oman to come and see us? What would it say? How would it compare us to the province or not what I'm eating.
And when I say that it compels us to the province or allow our lead instead of this shouldn't be something which demotivated we shouldn't think that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was someone who was far superior to us than he was. And so we can't even achieve anything that he achieved. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was our role model. And everything which he did was there as a means for us to go and to attain that same level to imitate him in his actions in his tentacles. In his work, some of them are aliens.
And so I'm happy to see that we're no longer fit for the purpose of a Well, I mean, he will send them he will be more generous than the wind driven way. That wind, as we saw today, that drives me so fast and so far, that there isn't a single part except that arrangement.
That's how generous you are. And we want to be touched by the generosity. There wasn't a single person that will be looked at from his kindness is just how we are
with our, with the Minister of Justice with the laws bestowed upon us. Is this what
if a man was to attend
with your brothers and sisters, from a lot of opponents, what would you see about us in our homes? What would he see our families doing behind closed doors? How is the month of Ramadan different for us?
As a family, as a household than any other month in the
US, does our family and our household change? Do you have the wife waking up during the night and say, pray? It is normal mom? Do you have a husband waking up his wife, and saying prayer is one o'clock? Do you have them turning their children encouraging them to respectable, so that they can realize that the stem, the promo part is different. It's not like any other time of the Ramadan is special. There is an emphasis on worship, or institutional support.
Just like any other day, just like there's
nothing different. If you were to go into someone's house, if you didn't know the fact that it was Ramadan, you would see nothing different. If you didn't know that the people were fasting, you can tell that there was nothing in their house that makes it seem like it's custom.
We will send them when the last 10 days come upon him, then he would be even more vigorous in his worship, even more energetic in his worship, and he would make up his family. And he would remain the whole life away.
To seek the pleasure of Allah to seek the mercy of Allah, and he was someone who was sinful forgive. How many of us? How many of us use our own as an excuse to come closer to Allah? And it was from the mercy of Allah, that a lot of people so one of the first
because if there was a protocol that people were afraid to rob me, there would be no encouragement to recycle? Or
how many of us interact with all of our, instead of looking at it negatively? Why don't we look at it in a positive one, where normal one comes upon us, instead of thinking that there is an 18 hour long path? Why don't we think that the time between Russia and furnture is so short, that we can stay up during the night that we can decide
that we can worship far more, because we all know, my dear brothers and sisters, that in the last night of larussa, Magellan descends to the lowest temperature of this stuff. And he says to the people who is asked for me so I can give you who is with me, so that I can accept his we can use who is there that will seek forgiveness, so that I made two different
reasons to use it as an excuse that I need to compose the foremost number one,
the trauma one came to us from upon see and speak and deal with
that in mind that will come that is better than a house of months that will come within the last 10 days, the last 10 months of Ramadan. Would you not encourage us to seek out the money to spend that night and worship of Allah to make the right to Allah that night. But if you were to live for many, many years, you will not be able to gain the reward of that single now.
How many of us care for our families that we encourage our brothers and our sisters and our children and our parents to seek out this man?
How many of us during the month of Ramadan will encourage our family members to come to the rescue to pray version? Everyone's
everyone's eating and drinking beer have fear those things will actually come to the mustard could
they ever excuse him alone? Many of us will encourage our family members to come and play budget in the mystery.
If one would come and see us, what we're proposing to you, I want you to think about this isn't a question that you need to answer to me or to anyone else. There is a question for you. What will come upon see to you, if Ramadan would have a conversation with you, a private conversation with you to speak to you after he saw what you did after he heard what you say? What would go around CG.
If Ramadan would speak, would it not be wonders? There are no 2pm and there will be a gate from the gates of Paradise that is known as our yard. And this cage of compromise is exclusively for those who worship.
is for those who pass and only those who will be allowed to enter to the station. No one else. Only those people
come to us.
remind us that the month of Ramadan, the month of fasting isn't just a month when you stop eating.
That's not what fasting is meaning that you stopped eating and you stopped drinking but you can carry on doing anything now. Ramadan is that means that you stay away that all of your limbs pass
From the sins of a lot, from disobedience for muscle training,
so not only do you not eat lunch, do not drink, but you stopped running, and you stopped cheating, and you stopped this evening. And it's not available now.
in Ramadan, not only does your mouth pass, but your eyes, and your ears, and your hands, and your feet, and your whole body. This is the true meaning of Ramadan,
or even close to the
The one woman from a conference apartment, they still continue to evolve, and to give false testimony. And to still act upon this whole system, there was no need that they give up their food. And
if Ramadan is only really a physical appearance, that we just show people that were fasting because we don't eat and we don't drink, if this is all normal means to us, that we stay hungry and thirsty, and that we become tired and fatigued, or that we lose weight that this isn't.
This is a one.
This is a one on one. So john comes from.
But what we need to acknowledge is that in all of the acts of worship, one of
us is piety.
And that's when he speaks about sacrifice. He says
when I do not want to what are key takeaways
from the needs of the animal that you sacrifice.
But he gains from the piety that you stay on the top of that you show to him. This is what was the top What do we have? This is what it comes from sacrifice. This is what he wants from her. This is where he wants to Turkey. This is what he wants from her. And this is what he wants from number one. When he asked my dear brothers and sisters of our soldiers wants to see our demand increase. He wants to see us coming closer to him in Russia. So what can we do? How can we prepare for
In my opinion, the first and most important thing is that we have the way that we look at
the way that we treat from afar. Because most often you hear people say that when you want to prepare for more time when you need to stop asking shamba Stop asking before or more. So you get used to it. And this is true. And I agree. It is something which we need to do. We need to increase in the restitution of one. So no one comes into a routine. You need to get used to pain during the night. So the robot will already come to a routine. We need to teach our families and ourselves about the mornings of Ramadan so that when Ramadan comes when our ignorance you don't know what we're doing.
When Oman comes you should be well equipped to prepare. For In my opinion, the first and most important and fundamental thing. The crux of the matter is our minds.
Because what we want is a robot for the phenomenon to have been an experience that would have changed our life and experience that will make us
that will make us better parents, better spouses, better brothers and sisters in Islam, and experienced increases in demand closer to Anwar increase our job. This is what we want from Oman. But you can't achieve this my brothers and sisters, if you look at Ramadan, as a burden and a chore, if you look at from abroad as simply something which will come and something which will bog you down and something which will make you tired and something which will be a difficulty and a hardship upon you, then you won't gain anything from this Ramadan, except that you're stuck on some alarming dimensions from fatigue and some of them themselves. If you want to benefit from normal, if you want
to work normal, then what you need to do is we need to accept from above as an automobile guest. Just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was read from Oman as an honorable guest phenomenon came he would
play to a lot more fast more. This is what he will do in Ramadan. And when Ramadan would leave, it will be a better person and the community would be stronger and the Muslim would be on a higher Iran.
And we should be like the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when Ramadan comes, we engage ourselves in Torah. We will come to see Ramadan. We look forward tomorrow. We can't wait until the day that Ramadan comes and Ramadan leaves that they have read when the trumpets have blown and the people come out in celebration and joy and festivity.
The day is the day my robot ends, that day is the day would have changed him. That is the day of the new beginning. That is the day when our lives have changed for the better. That's not the day, but everything is allowed. All of the stuff that we try not to do in Ramadan, now we can go and it's open season. That is the day when all of our means that we are truly transformed into bedrooms.
My dear brothers and sisters we want you to do as you need from this lecture is to pay attention to how you interact with Rama. How to live with normal, how to treat from above, under normal thought actually comes upon when
we can remember these words. How would you?
How would you treat from a god? Imagine that God can speak you can hear it can see it has feelings. It is alive. How would you live with this?
How would you treat this guest that has come upon you and maybe you will never return again. This is what I want you to go away with. And this is what I want to develop in your mind. This is the mindset that I want you to adopt. And it shall I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala allows you to Ramadan to be a month, which is a blessing for all of us. a month in which we change and transform our lives for the better a month in which we come closer for love a month in which he forgives our students and frees us from the fire of the Holy Spirit
and soul longs to them.
