Salam aleikum everyone and welcome back to our the second of our Ramadan series which I've got nadwi She is the principal and co founder of SLM Institute thank you everyone for joining in Sharla and we hope more of you can join us soon. Our first session our first Ramadan session session was in the first week of Ramadan if I'm not mistaken a few days into it And subhanAllah time has flown by we're now reaching the second the last third of Ramadan the first of the odd nights the starting today or for some people tomorrow but the last 10 days is upon us some of us may have started Ramadan with loads of last lofty aspirations as strict Ramadan schedule and maybe we've just experienced a dip in
our Ramadan we've experienced just a bit of a burnout or maybe some of us have started Ramadan and it didn't go that well and we're looking for just some motivation and some planning for how we can end it in sha Allah and the best way possible. So yeah, this this session will be on the last 10 days of Ramadan seeking Laila to the other and inshallah we will have a q&a at the end just in the last 1520 minutes so any questions as always please just put it in the comment section and I will be able to see them and check we'll be able to answer them in sha Allah so without any further ado check let's get started.
Oh definitely lie a bit I LME was for that or Saddam or Saudi Mohammed Viola early he was
for I will be learning Mina shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Wallmark adaptogen our inside larly I will do
so 100 Allah we have fasted
these 20 days of Ramadan, this is a great blessing from Allah subhanaw taala and Rama from him, we should thank Allah subhanaw taala we have no idea how much reward we get when when we first and only one day of Ramadan to now we have fast and 20 data for Ramadan. And then in each day, the prayers that we do fight or the prayer or we do this we have dhikr there are so many rewards that nobody can count them, you know impossible to count them even when people normally Say Subhan Allah one time, the reward is that
you know so much that it fills all the space between the Earth and Heaven was hunted.
In in, in other days, by Ramadan, the dudes are multiplied by many many times. So Hamdulillah this is the great month of Allah subhanaw taala in a month other good deals, people should do as much as possible, either at the obligor T on the people to avoid the sins because sins are also multiplied in these days, many many times to like lying, backbiting
and or other sins, they must be avoided in the month of Ramadan.
Uh, one thing I would just like to remind you, you know, now the last 10 nights are coming. And these are the, you know, the best data for Ramadan, this date and best nights of Ramadan. So we should really use them properly.
But the way that we do Ali Baba, that's not actually what Allah subhanaw taala wants, you know, just, you know, increase the quantity. You know, people read many of Quran many, many times, people will just be many meters very fast.
Just somebody was assisting to me, there there have been people in the surf, who fished the Quran between us and Mallory. So impossible the meaning basically, they I don't know how the people read. Similarly, if somebody reads the Quran three times in their night, how is it possible that people have been saying all these things, either their sinful things, or the impossible, and I don't know how people believe in these texts. Anyway, you know, don't follow these exaggeration of some of their lives. Don't follow them. You know, think really what Allah wants from you, and what Allah wants from you, that what the prophets have done. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam did
not do finish did not finish the whole Quran in one day, or like that, you know, to look at his life, how he to do things, that what we need to do.
So first of all, I encourage you that
in every single why bother, use your mind as much as possible? Think, try to understand everything. When you read the Quran, Make effort to understand it. When you first make understand matron effort to understand what fasting is, you know, when you make an effort to understand what prayer is when you ask for some water or something.
Try the mind to be there. Everything you do with the mind that what is accepted, and that what makes you stronger. Anything that you do
With such that the mind not only bother me by that cannot happen without the intention without the mind being there, if people don't have mind it just other you know Hybrid Hybrid does not make it bother to two very, very important to make effort to think to understand and what is the thinking here, then given that look at everything from the angle of the Creator
in what he wants to find Apple where Allah made mouth what why did he make the mouth? What did he want for the mouth, when he made made the nose? What does he want from the nose? Now, somebody starts eating through the nose, maybe they can for the food inside themselves? Is it a lot? Is it legato like it? No, we get a misuse the way of Allah has done everything he wants you to use the mouth to eat and use the nose for something else.
He wants to use it for something and AFR something
for everything he made a poor function, you have to understand what he wants. And when you do things, either he was or to police him only then it becomes solid data
in every single thing, look at this purple thing, that money Why did Allah make money?
What are the perfect what are the function is what he wants from us in the money that he was in the money that we spent the money on ourselves and the family on the poor people on the related or on any Islamic minute we spent on them? Not to keep the money, you know, but it rather than to spend the money in this thing and to what is it that he wants? If we do that, then we do know about that.
But if we don't spend the money that he was not I bother to for example, if we spend the money to make a nice food many types, the thing really, that allows me to our diversity of the foods.
Some people have 10 dishes 15 dishes, but just look is it this is what Allah wants. Look from Allah angle. He's about to be happy with my FAR. Because I miss so many different different dishes. No, don't do this.
You know, we have Celeste to look at everything from Angola, Phyllis. Hautala.
Now are you discovering? You're going to make clothes for you, yourself and your family? Look really? What are the walls, how many clothes he wore for our for us? What type how much money he wants to spend on that? What will make him happy? Then do that. Not more than that.
In every single thing is start looking from the angle of Allah.
When Allah created me, what did he want from me not what I want, I want to eat and drink, enjoy the life with the friends, you know so many times what No, go with the family, you know,
to see the city and the world, you know that what we wanted to enjoy the life but did that what he wants? Allah was for us like that, too, when you have this mind
looking at everything from the angle of the Creator, there your understanding, because you know very, very rich very strong, then you will never miss it. Never miss shaitan cannot miss due to you. The reason she autonomy salutes you, because you forget that
so he will make you to you know be proud
and he will make you to enjoy the eating and drinking he will make many things and then you start liking it
so he use your desires for this purpose. But when you look from a love angle, then you don't do this till
you know you want to go on a walk around it for so much money and everything the local realtor Allah want that isn't that wasting of time wasting of life
to when you look, it will stop you from wasting your time. So I advise you very strongly that he lost in night's focus on this one matter just hold that let me do everything from the angle that Allah was. Then we read the Quran, read from that angle that you know you read Surah Fatiha. Just think what Allah wants to teach me not what I want to learn. You want to learn like you know how to be impressed by the Quran or how great it is how eloquent the Quran is, and how Quran makes it clear. You just want to be impressed by the Quran. And people will teach you like that. Don't do that. Just think really that Allah revealed this book to the Prophet masala lism and he taught us
what Allah wants from sutra Fatiha, what he's teaching us. What does he want us to learn? When you read something about
Gotta think really what Allah wants me to learn from sorcerer Bacara.
Not what you can do. These are two different things really, it could be possible that you read Surah Fatiha, and you bring many, many points, which are amazing, very impressive.
And you're so much impressed. Just spend your time on that. But you don't realize your letter not like that. Allah has no interest in all these points. You're wasting your time.
And you're thinking you are in the Quran, you serving the Quran, you know, and spending your time with the Quran, to Allah must be happy. No, he's not happy. He's not happy with everything that you do with the Quran, he will lead a happy with you. When you do with the Quran what he wants you to do. That's all. If you do anything else, he will never be happy.
In this body, we need to learn properly. Seen the prayers, when you met the prayers? Think what he wants, he will not just count the karaka I prayed for tilaka behind DC mama daddy mama and this splitter? Does he want that? No. He wants people to pray in order to get humility, nearness to him during a kudos to him. If you get that, then you doing what he wants. If you don't do that, they don't get what
he wants. Everything's functional. You know when you look at the function for a function when limb needs what Allah made that thing for that to function for Ramadan. Why Allah made Ramadan Oberliga tree for us function of prayer, why Allah made the prayer obligatory for that for us. function of the Quran is why Allah revealed the Quran, to the prophets, Allah so what he wants to teach us. The function of the prophets, Allah loves me, why Allah wants us to follow him to look in, follow him on how to obey Him, learn from the Syrah. This is a very, very importantly, don't be deceived.
You know, don't start in running behind your desire. And course, if you like, no, stop the firewall.
You know, when the sun rises, many ideas come to your mind. But think really, what Allah wants me to learn from sun.
The not that when you have food, many nice ideas can come to your mind about the food. But you think what Allah wants me to learn from the food. He wants you to learn that how Allah created the food, how he created the need for the food, and how he doesn't mercy upon you or upon you, how he feeds you.
Do you remember him thinking to the food before being full for your stomach, with the food for your mind, you know, for your heart, it makes it easier to lose Hautala when you drink the water, think really, why Allah made the water, why He gave you water, think about that. Water, drinking the water will make you near to Allah subhanaw taala
thank you not only what you see with your tongue thinking, how you feel how you understand things. So this is a very, very important thing, really many people that use the Quran, and then they start fighting, you know, looking for the scientists, you know, science in the Quran, that you know the science, you know, they will have so many things, how can we get those ideas in the Quran? And did they look after that, you know, they can prove that you know, the earth is moving, that we can find the Quran to so many scientific facts, they start finding the Quran wasting time because Allah did not reveal the Quran to prove all these things that in other matters, some people can, you know,
find from for outside but you don't need to use Quran for that.
You have to think some people
are impressed by the numbers in the Quran. And the same miracles of the numbers in the Quran. Waste of time. You know, it is not what Alyssa wants you from the from the Quran. Some people look in the Quran to find the future in the Quran, that will mahadi will accompany the GRE will come with Gog and Magog will come where Muslims look at the power again and they look for that. This is not why Allah reveal the Quran far.
Sometimes they want to find the file in the Quran. They just turn the page whatever comes on the first line to the thing it's going to solve the problem or it is actually some important teaching for them. Allah never revealed the Quran for this purpose that you take Quranic guidance in learning and understanding
if you want to marry someone, so that the procedure Allah has taught in the Quran, the Sunnah look for that. Not that you turn the Quran, don't allow us to marry this woman with the right family tomorrow, not until you open the page and whatever comes first, you think that it is strictly from Allah, this mistake, he did not reveal the Quran for that purpose that you learn this way. Quran guidance instruction. You know, if you want to marry someone what qualities you look their Quran can teach you. There's a similar can teach you but not that the first word or the Quran or first letter the Quran is going to teach
Do something with all misuse of the Quran. Never do like that same thing people do always the hara than all those none of them are from Chronos another person
to let me first I this, this point again again, that started making this habit that you look at everything from the angular the creator
is not from your angle, not from the angle of the people, not from the angle or the pores of philosophers or scientist or your parent, just one angle. And that angle often was a Hautala. When you do this, you become clever, you become wise, you become nearer to Allah subhanaw taala data to then read the Quran with that, that you know, I'm reading all sorts of Fatiha let me think really what Allah wants to teach me through the surah
and how I can learn and keep in mind, I go to this little button, let me think what Allah wants to teach me
in Sue's booklet on how the Quran is guided, how does Quran guides me how Quran is structured, you know, how helps me for everything, that when you do this thing, your mind will change, your life will change. And it will be real change, which will be changed forever. Not that people follow their own thinking, it is just a mood. It only survived for a few days of a few moments moments, but when you emphasize to learn a lot for purpose,
the good training it remains with you all the time to start this thinking is spent time just lie down. Just think you think people don't understand really thinking itself is Alibaba.
You know, many people think that just reading many meters, Vijay, but no thinking that why bother when you think about Allah subhanaw taala and what he wants from me is why bother? Just sit and think Can you play it in a focus? You know, you've got so much reward for that.
Thinking many, many good men have come to me when I'm lying and thinking why not I can sit here it makes them near to Allah subhanaw taala to this learning process with Ali Baba, evaluate not only the things that people do, as ritual, learning and thinking, that's very, very important. Why bother
to focus on that, then do your you know other parts of the body with your body either much you can do easily in they're not going to make you tired? Palace ohata is not intended to make you tired he just wants you to do obey him account your ability
to fasting them reported that you do any way to long term debt also keep your eye on you know, don't miss any fasting. Do it properly with an Iftar on the time.
Then you last night's do your prayers nicely, as much as possible, especially the further prayer the news of Sunnah prayer.
Then after that, if you have more time and more energy than to Tara, we
have more downloads, or other prayers as much as possible, keep doing.
This would be
but I will emphasize really all the bad that even if you do little with thinking that he will allow you to give more and more Baraka levels, raise them grow them, they become bigger.
But more important than that is don't backbite
don't lie. Don't hurt anybody. Don't harm anybody. Don't laugh at anybody. In this, don't make fun of anybody. That and more and more importantly, because when you hurt anybody, then all your good deeds are given to that person and you become hated will Allah hates people, a lot of not like people when they hurt anybody. Don't worry about the world, worry about yourself.
Just think and similarly, you know, in the family, all these problems if they remain in Ramadan, they're very, very harmful, that the prophet or husband or wife, between the parent and the children, between sisters and brothers, brothers, brothers or sisters, sister, between France and France, people need to solve them. Because if the people keep their attention and hatred, you know it, then nothing is accepted. And other than not want that.
Similarly, your expectations, husbands have expectations from their wives and wives have their own expectations from their husbands. Parents have expectation from the children and children have expectation from their parent and sisters and brothers have this expectation from everybody and all the university every Muslim holiday
quotation from other people check that because it couldn't be possible what expect is not right.
Always look from a love anger, what a loved one from you.
Not what you want what you desire, you want your husband to do this thing for you this shopping or their shopping or your husband wants you to do this cooking or that cooking. But think of it that way. Isn't that what Allah wants?
If you want your husband to do something, and Allah does not want, there is no Baraka.
No barakato No, to this last night's many, many families waste in, in making Allah angry with them. They will only discuss shopping, eat cloth, you know, eat things, and waste their time. None of those things are in a no likened by LaLana that length, he wants something else to do to you don't make your husband to follow your expectations. And don't make your wife to follow your expectations. What is do think really what Allah wants me to do for my wife.
What Allah wants me to do my husband, what Allah wants to do for me to do for my brothers and sisters, on what Allah wants me to do for other Muslim fellows. That what you do, if you do that, in last 10 Nights, Allah will be happy. And you will get more and more Alibaba more and more rewards that you can imagine it because your habit in the future, that that's a very, very important all the way they make a lot and get it only angle. Don't make your angle. And if somebody does something right, it will not angle, then don't mind it. Even if you don't like think you know you're this person doing something what a lot of arson, that's fine, then even if I don't like it doesn't matter
what matters, the heater the water Lagomarsino.
That's a very, very important
thing to understand, really. And if people do any good deed to you, any favor is more. Don't be upset, always you can do this and that no cigarette, he had done something, or she had done something to the fact the person and ask Allah to reward the person, even if he does not do as much as you want, because of what you wanted. Not necessarily, right. But what a lesson with Allah has said that what is right, this is a very, very important thing to understand. Many people will think that you know, it is Ramadan, let's go and spend the night in Amara and all those things, if you can do properly, and you can afford it without making pressure your wife or husband or anybody else. And
she recently told us Mater, you got reward for that. But sometimes people do the O'Meara and all those things to show off. And then they lose the reward. Actually, somebody should not do more, or they get more reward. If they stay at their home properly, and they do what Allah wants them to do. Sometimes you need to be at home, you know, looking after your parents, your family, or somebody else they need you they depend upon you. Sometimes spending time with your family will be more valuable than going into 400 rendre.
You have to ask if you don't understand, I'll ask those who know distinct.
Similarly, sometimes you spend money on certain thing. Maybe it's because like you give mother's money in a madrasa or this thing or 13 Yeah, you got to wait for that. But sometime fully possible that you have got a relative
who is very urgently at the money and he had no one to give him maybe spending on that relative will be more reward than anything else. Look real that yeah, I've got all these possibilities to spare money, which one is best in if Allah subhanaw taala
just follow that I have an answer. Hautala should be in your mind, more important than anything else. And then either in this month, this last night's more likely the one night and that night
for our says
is better than 1000 a month and the right of Syriza that 1000 month had a mission will lead to make a huge number. Because people's number one told them the last number two when they want to sell something huge. They said you did not really want how there will be many, many others. And also it's better. So it's really a very important thing for a believer to get this night.
So that night we don't know where to go to heaven for at least 10 Nights, make sure that you don't bite, don't hurt anybody in 10 Nights. Do i bother easily as much as possible? And think about Allah subhanaw taala do you get the reward of thinking about Allah for so many years that you don't understand? So, you know, this is
a summary of I wanted to teach it really that you know that I myself have been thinking that to make a law
was anger, dominant my thoughts? So I stopped it here and if you will, of course you will be asked
exactly the current chef. Okay, let's have a look in Sharla
and go to the first question that we have. Can you hear me okay? Sure. Yeah, yeah, definitely. Yeah. Okay, perfect. Okay, so this is we have a question from Sonova. And I think this is something that most of us can resonate with if we're working full time or studying with exams. She's asking how can we make the best of these nights with a hectic schedule?
You know, at least start with the listing listing, I will tell you the prayer for the prayer.
Marie on tomorrow time is on the Showtime and for the undefeated time to at least you have God the reward of these prayers in the night of the other huge thing that you know, more than 1000 years ago, were written by up to one Elisha, and you got the reward off more than tau then Asia, Asia more than 1000 nights to fasting with basic thing. In distant nights, nobody stops you for our for the pair.
Do for the pair. Then after that, you have all your work, see what easily I can do subsequent NFL player so now player easily match between Mallory Malaysia, you can do some raka maybe don't do all it because you have your house your family, you know some time washing the pots and cleaning but maybe you can get time for two raka the tunica and after Isha in the middle so again cleaning and all those things and go to sleep early. You can get Taifa Forca to do Forca and when you get off after school, then go to Morocco at a time when
you've got so much reward you cannot imagine.
And then meanwhile when you lying down, give thinks of 100 Allah Subhana Allah Al Hamdulillah keep saying this and understanding them to you get in this nursery What about this this? So you know even people who don't do materialistic they can get in this not so much the word
but the condition is don't do sin yet that more more than just nobody I really prefer if you do Mallory Venetia and finally on sleep or tonight is still fine. It's still you gotta Mallory, Aisha and Fajr and all these nights, but
when you sin that a problem so avoid the sin as much as possible.
sure if I would actually like you to maybe speak on a topic that we brushed last year in Ramadan. And this is I think in terms of speaking about the topic of people being busy and having a work schedule and also feeling overwhelmed and wanting to do it better. With a lot of men of course that are working. A lot of them think that in order for them to gain reward or for them to make the use out of these these days they have to go to the machine for not only is this is this correct? Do they have to go you know think that the for the printer that people should do. Many men specially women also they want to do in the masjid with the Jamar but the NAFLD prayer area prayer is better if
people do therapy at home they will get more reward. They're praying in the masjid. If people pray sunnah at home, they get more reward than praying in the masjid. You know Moscato perhaps Allah Allah has so much reward. But the professor did not play the Sunnah in the masjid. He took prayer at home, he took literally at home not in the masjid and sent a companion most of these to pray Travia at home, except those who don't have space at home, they used to pray in the masjid. So every player at home had more reward than the most except for the player that had this is a Buhari and other books of the Hadith.
So there are other allies, people if you want to Telavi read your own Quran maybe you can't, I don't know, to hold the most half. I'll read from that and do Telavi you get more reward that bring in the muscle.
Okay, does that.
Let's have a look. We have a question from
I'm just trying to see if there are common questions just on the topic of the last 10 days.
Let's see in sha Allah, let's take a question. Okay, this isn't specific to the last 10 days but let's take each other. But he was asking, you mentioned about doing things while looking through the angle of Allah. Is there not a balance that can be reached where we enjoy certain aspects of life by recognizing that it is a blessing?
Not thinking we're willing to look at other things from anger Phyllis Hautala. Enjoy. We'll come to
Yeah, he's Angus included to make people happy. People don't understand that he's not you know, he's not you know looking sort of man. What it is instance Rama he did not say that he only created food for you. He said he makes he created for you Mirjana Lulu the pearls is towards all Xena
to look for with angle he wants you to use Perl, he wants you to use the inner precious stones that were created, He counted at the mercy of from him. Another, another angle is not very narrow.
But a love angle. Very comprehensive. And it makes everything connected together with Alibaba, our angle disconnectors. From Alibaba, we want enjoyment without Alibaba, what allows us to give us enjoyment through the Alibaba you people get in properly. You know, Allah never said that, you know, huge Harar food and what cook nice, you know, unless you eat halal food for the professor to you, but you can make it and process nicely. There's no flavors and you know, spices, whatever you can make as good as possible. He doesn't mind that. When you wear the cloth. You know, he wants you to protect yourself from gold and the heat and also cover your body and worship Him. But if you want to
make it nicer look, he doesn't mind that. He allowed that after maybe you get reward for that to another angle, not very narrow, a lot and actually more comprehensive that our angles narrow. Our angle actually narrows down everything only to superficial enjoyment. That's all it is just
leave people and tell them that you do what you enjoy. You know what will happen? Then you eat those foods which are actually harmful to you. Unhealthy quantity will be big and you're going to be destroying your life. Do you look at a very narrow angle, what allows you to look all that
get enjoyment, but look at your health. Look the quantity look at this, he will tell you tend to take the stage with enjoyment plus, you know not not harm you human and that's all with a very narrow very very narrow there where you see all the wars happening in the world. The resources that Allah has given to the people they don't need war. People can live in them why the war happens because the people have made their anger very narrow and love angle never makes it narrower. Don't leave a peaceful for the people peaceful for your mind is that you do everything from the angle of Allah subhanaw taala
I was I was hoping Jeff if you could speak about in terms of connecting with the Quran this month, I think for a lot of especially non Arab speakers, non Arabic speakers, they can often feel quite overwhelmed overwhelmed when it comes to the Quran, they feel overwhelmed of okay, I want to recite I want to make a complete Makoto heighten of the Quran. But I also want to be able to understand and connect with it and they don't know where to start so sure, what advice would you give to someone who's maybe abandoned the Quran this month, and they want to start in you
know, nothing. Really, Quran is a book of guide, there's no doubt that notebook guys have guided as Quran that Allah, Allah subhanaw taala keeps reminding people that contemplate think reflect on the Quran, and that what he said to the Prophet what what the Quran Attila? When you read the Quran, read slowly, you can understand and when people listen from you don't understand is a message he wants people to understand it. It is not really that he wants people to just finish many, many time. He never was interested in, in finishing, finishing our anger, he's not Allah's angle. Learning a lever has been that people complete the Quran many, many times, he never said it with this. He never
asked anybody to do this, and will only have been one that tried to understand the book and follow it, act upon it, that what good for you, too when people read slowly, nicely, and the reader universe understand or reflect, then they look for that more passive meaning they are more reward because that what Allah wants from them. So in this month, if you don't want to be that fine, if you don't want to be
they'll find out any good translation to read Arabic, one verse and then read translation and try to understand what Allah wants from you and get a good meaning of that, then move to the second one or third hour. And then when you have done terawatts together, then reflect again, that how these 10 verses make a good connection, how they're connected to each other. That whole sooner reflect one university read the whole surah the reflect again, what I get from the whole Surah how they make some important points, what are the points that they want to make, then it will be useful reading. Otherwise the finishing the Quran again again, does not actually guide anything, nothing will happen
Okay, Inshallah, let's take a question from Sharia. His question is, I found in the Quran that the last day the day of resurrection and the hour are used in different ayat, what's the difference between them and what is the Hikmah of using different words for the same event
you know, everything has many many aspects. So when you understand this thing, to when Kurata yarmulke Yama eater the meaning is that when the people who will be raised from gresty you look at that, that all the humanity have died, and they will come with a largest and we'll make one command. And everybody's coming out from that when Allah said Al Al Yeoman, aka, then you know really that this world that we live in is just temporary, that you will find a day somewhere else which will never end this is going to end but that is never going to end. You know, after same reduction path, that how will love boost the soul again in you. So these words, you know they did relate like
Alassane Ouattara when you say a rough man refers to when he said Rahim, it reversible Salazar. It also the festival. It also was referred to as nostalgia, but they had their own meaning either. When you say reserved, it means hola but it also meant that he provides provision. When you say man, it means Allah, but it also means that Allah is merciful, either Rama. Similarly, all these words, they meet the Day of Judgment, but in different way, not the same way to honor all these Anglesey in the verse verse you read are important to reflect on that think while I use this word
but don't force your only meaning. either try to understand from Quran don't bring your desired Quran not from your insight outside external book, your understanding should be coming from outside how the prophets used to do how our language supports this not just what you think your your, your desire from inside is not it did not decide the meaning of the Quran, meaning of the Quran should be learned from external sources
Okay, Inshallah, chef, I was hoping you could speak about maybe some tips on making dua. Sometimes. Sometimes we're at a loss of words for words of how to start a diet or maybe we have so many things to ask for, we don't know where to start. But can you give us some practical tips on how we should be making dua
you know, fasting, really, in this world, everything happens with the command of Allah. He said that what is truth of the matter really is, you know, for example, your food, when you eat the food that you think that your mom made, and all these people have made nothing but the reality the lamp commanded and this happened. So everything happens with the commandlets or Allah subhanaw taala but for many things he had hidden is a command through certain cartels to let you know the water causing the Command of Allah, but he made the cloud and Frank allow the rain
you know, you look like the but truth really, it all this just content, you know, the cloud did not have any water, nothing, not nothing to just add last command. And you know, it happened unless water makes it through so many ways. Just coming to fasting understand that everything is will with the command of Allah he's the one who does nobody else does. You know, the cloud don't do. So when you make dua, that what you're doing really, you are asking the real source, the real Doer to do things.
Tell me really
when your mom gives you the food in the plate and the spoon, do you look for that's coming to the plate, but you don't think the plate don't think the spoon in order to Mom has made you thank the mom, she does she has used so many means, by never thank you, thank you, your mom seemingly endless Hautala to all the things I
look at that the doer is endless mattala Dwyer basically means that this, it could be possible sometime means that not very clear to you. But you asked him he will clear the means, because in this world, he does things for the means he does not do directly for a reason. He has got this item. So he he he can do as he likes really on all the means are created by him anyway. But for a reason. He just wants to make it within carton. We don't need to ask more or do this. We know he can create things in many many ways as he wants to just ask him directly and trusting that he will do you know not just with the lift, lift with a little nothing happened. When he asked him he did it. That
nothing nothing more effective in this world.
Then draw that nothing more for that, you know? And when you ask him, he did it.
He anonymized it. You know, whatever you ask him. He did actually he did the more than that, more than you ask, you know, he did do it the most effective, effective thing that you can see in this life, even the hearts that everybody said, There's no way to remove it. And you asked him, he can remove it, he can create from where you cannot know, really, he creates things. So all of that for every need, you need to come to him and ask him to spend time with into our you know, when you in the lack of these notes as well make it work properly, or unofficially asked him to forgive you to make die on the man to give you paradise to protect you from the Hellfire deal, to protect you from
the punishment as a grave to decrease use the knowledge to make your family in a blizzard, and you know, make them and they become near to Allah subhanaw taala de la de da that you need to ask a little water as much as possible, but believing that he don't want to do
and generally, when you do to her after the bad, then your heart is more attending to like after the prayer, you know, sitting Oh after reading the Quran, or after what not the Quran, you know, after fasting this Ali Baba, then you make dua at the end of the fasting, before you start, you make a dua it is accepted. See this, in the early morning, you will make dua that accepted you know, an art for tomorrow's Friday, you know, Friday morning in particular it is starting from night really, two very, very important day, and especially the time between us and Mallory one Friday, and a very, very important to us spend time on the list of Hautala ask him make a dua read more and more Quran
will accept but dua should be your weapon all the time. A light then I don't want to tell you the stories really. I can tell you in my own stories, that it is impossible, a nice ask you typing and it's happening everywhere in life in your life. Not only my Lord is the Lord of all the universe, in unbelievers. If unbelievers ask him, he listens. So you know, make a connection to him. When you come to the people. They can't do it. They humiliate you, but when you come to Allah Allah restricts you to see if you come to me and ask me to help you for 1000 pounds, though you know it will hurt me I will not be so happy but when you come to a lesson Hautala here because more more happy
is Ikea furniture.
Okay, let's let's take this question.
In Ramadan, we hold up our hands on mobiles during throwaway prayers. Please can you clarify if this habit can be continued outside of Ramadan for example, in the sunnah or no after prayers?
Yeah, you know nothing of prayer is not there. You can read from the Safa from the phone or from anything that you know you can read that no harm that not only for Ramadan, you know you can talk to people who allow it, it can be done anytime. But when you are doing your own reading by following a mom then daughter or Mustafa you get the No need really hearing from the Imam anyway. But when you're doing your own reading, you can hold yourself it's good to you know to do after because sometimes people need to read long sutras. So they can almost have a read but not for the current offer. They should be more concentrating on belly but I do I do.
Okay, let's take a question from very her.
Her question is in spite of doing good deeds and a burden, sometimes I get this anxiety that maybe Allah is not pleased with me and what If Allah doesn't forgive me on the day of judgment? How should I deal with this thought?
You know, thinking that the bad thoughts are very, very bad, really, you have to remove it, why Allah will not forgive you. If no thing if Allah makes you to do good deeds, that is sign is accepting you.
While he make you, He will not like you to do either. He, you know, when he makes you to do good deeds, certainly reward God not miser. If he said for the pleasure, what this reward and you pay him to reward it is impossible, that you do things and he will not reward you. It never happens. Even people don't do this, why Allah will do this. So I don't know where you got this idea from. Don't look at what a ladder cutter he is more, you know, pleasing, more fulfilling his promise than you do what He commands. That's all either I said to you in the beginning. Look everything from the angle of Allah. Just do what Allah commanded you and the target because Allah will reward that no doubt
about that. To do your do your prayer and believe in the rewards that Allah had my father, that it will certainly will happen. Allah never breaks His promise he sent the Quran in
Hola Hola. You got it for me hard, and London ever breaks His promise. If he made a promise he will do it.
But do sincerely over 50 Don't look at Allah don't test yourself, I'm doing right where I am doing right intention could be your intention, right? You do too. So the people sometimes don't do that account as soon as possible. So, you do this account to your own way, without learning how to do nicely
not be with a lapse of not your worry should be whether I do like to not die if you do rightly. Certainly Allah will devote you.
Chef I was hoping if you could maybe speak about sometimes we speak about Ramadan for people who are working and for.
I don't know, we mainly just speak about people that are quite busy. But sometimes we neglect the mothers, and maybe even the new mothers. So for example, if I was speaking to one of my one of my friends yesterday, she has a newborn. And she was saying I don't have my time is not my time anymore. When the baby's sleeping, I'm sleeping, and when the baby's awake, I'm tending to her. And I don't have any energy for anything, I just about half the time to pray. And sometimes chefs, these new mothers, they compare their Ramadan to how they, how the Ramadan was performed motherhood and how much they were able to do and how they felt. What advice would you give to mothers in this
when you do it bother, you get rewards. And then when you do other things which are last wanted you, you get more more reward if history keep doing. So, you know, like, for example, if somebody's not married, and do I bought a lot, and then after that they get married, and then you know, they earn money and spend money. And they don't do same, why bother these two paths, they get more Morrible because in what they're doing is obeying Allah subhanaw taala commanded them to earn money to spend the family to know that Alberta will be multiplied by many times, because while being busy, we did struggle as Hautala same to women, when they're pregnant, or when they have a baby, you know, or
Command of Allah, Allah has made this law, if they do properly all the all these conditions, the rewards are multiplied by many, many times. But what they should be that whenever they have time for any other, they should not be lazy. So let's have a look at that when you believe your child, that's fine, but when you are not with with the child, then that time, you know, it spends a lot of Hautala he will be happy and also when you lying down, think about Allah subhanaw taala think about taken as Hautala to he does all that to being busy with the baby or child with asthma and with the wife that does not start the report, reverse keep coming but all the commands of Allah provided not only
reading the Quran, or prayer or fasting or any command of Allah that you obey, you get reward for that. It's all die bada.
Jeff, sorry, just on this topic, one more thing. What would you say for about households were safer in, for example, in the situation where the husband, he uses his free time and he spent his nights going out to the machine and Frank doorway and doing all of these different iPads.
But instead of him helping his wife and maybe sharing the time looking after the kids the wife has spent at home, she's not able to do my job either. She's looking after the kids and the husband isn't able to do everything he wants to do.
Yeah, if he does all these things, she regret all the reward anyway, because she's
rewarded not none of the mind. In other men don't look everybody was given by lots of Hautala that people should actually the thing either I bestow my time really manage that people take out the duties of the women, they're not the duties, cooking it not that you know they do this thing or they're out of favor. They do to make sure you understand this thing in either they should do or they should help. So both of them have the duty and
the reward. But if the women somehow are forced because some men are not fear, and they do Rangareddy in one of my students, she phoned me
tonight about something I asked her to be patient, the husband is not very you know, but he's doing really that if you do this, you will have three divorce that if you do this your three divorce. So you know, just threatening her with the divorce that in Nevada and if you do this, you'll get three divorce. The telomere really and what he what he's getting is something awful here right to do wait another like to his stuff. After all these people really are bad people, that the women are patient that to somebody with these men, they get more more reward. And these men get more more sick or hurting anybody
and harming immunity to sinful act. So I think the women should be heard
If the husbands are not good, because whatever a bother they do all the rewards come to the wives, all the rewards that alignment very clear the profit when people wrong anybody, their good deeds go to that person and his or that person the bad deeds come to this person, the wife has been forced to work all the day and not really bother that all day bothered that husband. The rewards go to the wife because she's unjustly treated, and her citizen will go to the husband. So I think what can be better than that, that you get rewarded for something which you never have done?
Okay, I feel like we did cover this shift in the last session that we had, but I think there's no harm in speaking about it briefly again. Since this is I think something many women are going to be asking about
what is the best either during the last 10 nights for for women on their period? Can they get any any reward for intending to vote or are we cancela in the masjid?
Yeah, I think women when you are in their periods, it is not their intention, it is not their choice. It is done by law for a bigger purpose, you know, which is not in your hand to fulfilling unless purpose you're getting reward for that and we measure understand really, that it this condition is not a sinful condition. It is not a dirty condition. It's a condition in bigger Parana philosophy Huhtala they're fulfilling their plan. So they get reward for the dishes patient but that condition does not stop the from every good things will listen to can't do the prayer.
Or they can't fast. But everything else they can do, they can read the Quran with their eyes or even with the list some people say they can understand the Quran they can reflect upon they can do sadaqa charity, they can help anybody they can teach people you know, they can support people they can do millions of things already, you know
what listen, you can't do this to things you can't read you can't fast but everything else you can do. So I don't understand why women feel deprived, you know, especially when it has nothing to do with them like illness if I fall ill I can't fast I don't get sick for that it Allah subhanaw taala has a you know, a lesson from him. But I get it the same thing this this when people don't do good deeds out of their own choice, did they get sick but women don't have choice in this matter, they should feel happy and they should make effort to do whatever best they can do on a level forgive them and a level reward them
the women can be the better than the men with all this to say you know if a woman does not fast in doing this the time is still her reward will be more can be more than the mean can whatever is needed if he does nicely I love will reward her I'll ask the women in a should not feel low because of that rather directly thank Allah I'll be happy with that what Allah does for them that they are light to your destiny. I'm happy with that and I want to make nearness to you with whatever means I can do to do the customer 100 low or 100 lower light I don't love and love what makes a lot and the person doesn't ask Allah to foreign your sins and I measure charity and helping people all the are
you making food for other people you know when you make food for the people he thought
you got the reward or the all the people who do start to see not only one fast so many people fasting and you getting the reward when you mix a whole you get a reward of all those people in a semester reward are definitely women
anywhere you know the orientation is more deerstalker could be multiple by millimeter it all your intention do nicely even if do small things
okay insha Allah let's see if we can take one more question
Candela we've covered most of them.
Okay, son has a question. Is it true to claim that spraying 20 rockauto is is of the sunnah or is it rather of the sunnah to say that there are ways to be prayed into raka at minimum.
Understand what a simple matter really is, that in the night prayers, all the prayers are nothing really but if some enough prayers have been done by the prophets Allah Allah Selim, then they will come soon if you had done regularly, every Nifflas sunnah there are not many diversity is that so neither one with the Prophets a little hidden more regularly with all Knopfler new people to put a reward for that. And in the night prayer
are more likely to purchase something used to do in Ramadan Torterra cup we don't actually have very clear proof but more likely for of some things we can understand. But if people do to raka for Raka, six raka to recall maybe more than 2030 36 Whatever the or the reward of that, so I don't even understand what exactly want to ask
that's fine. I think the general gist of the question was answered Inshallah, I think we will leave it there inshallah. Again, Iftar is very soon, I'm sure many people have prep to do or they just shot I need to get going, but just to share for your time again, Hamdulillah, this was a second part of our Ramadan sessions. In sha Allah, then first of all odd nights for most people will do will be today. So I hope that everyone took some benefit out of today. And sha Allah, they have made some plans. And maybe if your Ramadan didn't start out as best as you hoped, these next 1010 days and 10 Nights can maybe change that up in sha Allah and hopefully by the end of it, it will be the best
Ramadan you've had.
