All praise and thanks belong to a lot, the Most High. We thank him and we seek His help and aid and we ask Him that He forgive us. And we seek His refuge from the evil of ourselves in the sense that we commit. Indeed, whomsoever Allah guides, no one can lead us astray. And whomsoever leads astray, no one can guide and ever witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone, that Mohammed Salah Lavalle you seldom is a slave and messenger. Indeed, the best of speech is that of the book of Allah. And the best of guidance is that of Mohammed Salah Lavalle you ascend them and the worst of religious matters are those that are innovated that religious innovation is a bit and
everybody is misguidance, every misguidance of being hellfire.
how long has it been? Since the month of Ramadan has expired?
And more importantly, how long does it feel? Does it feel like it was days? Does it feel like it was weeks? Does it feel like it's even longer than that? And how is our state now after that we have
said goodbye to the month of Ramadan and spent two days a couple of weeks outside of the town our state? What is our state of Eman? How close are we to Allah subhana wa Taala what is our spirituality status like?
Now of course, it would be very difficult almost near impossible to continue the status that we have reached if Allah subhanaw taala had blessed us to continue and maintain that status that we had in Ramadan.
Because the month of Ramadan is a month of an intensified worship to Allah subhanho wa Taala even the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would worship a lot more than Ramadan, then outside Ramadan. And that would have a definite mark that the companions of Muhammad would be able to see on his character. So it's the same thing with us. It's very difficult to maintain that same level of excellence, if a lot helped us reach that level. But at the same time,
it's also difficult for us to exist as two different individuals inside the month and outside the month as two different communities inside the month and outside the month.
We need to
and you know that and you've heard that before the month and after the month we need to integrate some of what we had learned in the month of Ramadan, some of that proximity to Allah, some of that closeness to Allah subhanaw taala to bring it into our daily lives.
But the question here is how can we do this?
Because we could say and we could object
and say that we are overwhelmed. There's so much happening in our days and in our weeks.
We don't have the company that we had in Ramadan, we don't have the atmosphere that we had in Ramadan. How can we maintain all of it? Or some of it at least? An hour question here is perhaps similar to the question that someone had to the messengers will allow you to send them
when he came to him and he said, he Rasul Allah insha, Allah islamicate hora de la. It says, oh, messenger of Allah,
that commandments of Islam,
the branches of Islam, what Allah has commanded, had recommended all of it, the Sharia had become too overwhelming for me.
Forbidden he became a Tisha addition to be so telling me advise me of one thing that I can cling to.
And another duration, flexibility be a marine Jameer. Tell me about something that is comprehensive. And maybe we sometimes feel like that i with the obligations of Allah subhanho wa Taala, and also the recommended acts, sometimes they could feel
So what did he say? So a lot of you are using them
to listen to
the advice that he gave him, he says, Let your tongue continuously be moist because of the remembrance of Allah.
This is what he told him. That's the reporting advice that he gave him of all of Islam. This is what I'm leaving you with. And why did he sallallahu wasallam choose that because when you think about it, then you observe all acts of worship, all acts of worship that we do are to remember Allah subhana wa tada and that's the essence of them.
That is the essence of all of it.
As Allah subhana wa tada says,
walking is solitary victory. Solomon the hula hula was done for a reason the cover came in so that any degree established the salah, to remember me, that's the that's the advantage. That's the purpose of establishing the solid that's why you pray five times a day to remember Allah subhana wa Tada. In another area, Allah subhana wa tada says, you probably know this very well in the salata, tenha Russia evil Mancha. Then, what is the Corolla cover? So solid forbids commands good and forbids evil. Then Allah says, well, Nikolai Akbar, and you can understand this in two complimentary ways. One is the Nikolai Berman decree komiya. That when you remember Allah, Allah remembers you.
Imagine this, you know stop with this a little bit, as the messenger sallallahu Sallam said in the Hadith, in the Hadith heresy that Allah has said, is the currency of defeat of see the cartoon enough See, if my slave remember is made himself I'll mention him in myself, I remember him and myself, why in the currently female.
If he mentions me in a crowd, among a people in a gathering is occurred to him and I invited him in home I will mention his name and a crowd among a people or in a crowd that is better than they are. Here. The Creator of the heavens of the earth, the Lord Allah subhana wa Taala is mentioning your name, your name, when you remember Allah subhana wa Tada. So when I think about the numbering of Allah subhanaw taala when you mentioned your name is better than when you mentioned his name.
The other one will talk about that is the Salah which brings the dhikr of Allah subhana wa Taala has or performs that superior act which is greater than commanding good and forbidding evil.
Because the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the goal and the aim.
What is the benefit of remembering Allah subhana wa tada and that has tremendous benefits. So I'm going to just talk about a little bit of them.
One of it is that when you remember Allah subhana wa Taala you will love Allah. So you ask yourself, do you love Allah? Do you want your love of Allah to increase? Are you looking for that type of relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala or not and if you are, here is your chance inshallah.
We know that if someone likes something, loves something cares about something automatically, he will talk about it. You can't stop them or stop her. If they love something. And it works the other way if you want to love something, talk about it. mention it, keep mentioning it.
So to love Allah subhanho wa Taala is to remember Allah and to remember Allah is to love Allah.
So this is one huge advantage.
remembrance of Allah subhana wa Tada.
The second one among many
is that when you remember Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah cleanses your heart.
And when you stray from the remembrance of Allah, the shaitaan jumps in and your heart hardens.
Your heart becomes hard, callous, insensitive. Notice the sensitivity of the messengers of Allah, Allah you listen. When he says, in the hall, indeed as in the Hulu one or Allah kalbi, when needed hasta la, Mia, Tamara,
it says, indeed my heart, and I'm going to explain this gets covered with line.
And I asked Allah for forgiveness 100 times a day.
So what is this line that is that covers the heart of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they say in the language of the Arab divine is the delicate, white cloud,
delicate white cloud.
What he's saying so Allah, Allah you it was said to them, that it is impossible for a human being who's living on this earth. to continuously be remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala all the time. You have to deal with family. You have to deal with problems with your wife, with your children with the state. And imagine the responsibilities of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with all of his worship. Still, he says, right through the day, that slight sensitive, almost transparent covering creeps over my heart because of it. I want to chase it away. I say it's 200 times. And if this is the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who prays so much at night, who remembers Allah so many
times during the day? And still that type of slight covering? Does creep and how about us?
Worse yet, when we are sure I'm the creator of man in a bun and for the whole Corinne, the one who strays from the remembrance of the man. What happens to him? No, we will send the devil to him. Because there is no protection, he will send the devil to Him and He will be his companion and tell me brothers and sisters, what will happen to you and your devil is in his in his your companion.
He's sitting right there on top of your heart, shaped by New Jersey monocle. bieniemy sitting on top of your heart for the Corolla harness. When you remember a line withdraws, you forget he comes back and he sits on top.
If you feel depressed, anxious, right? angry, irritated. And all of these things, right? It is because of the shaitaan is sitting on top of the heart and the remembrance of Allah has not been allowed inside.
When you remember Allah, what do you remember? brothers and sisters? What do you remember that Allah is the only one who's eternal, that everything around you will perish and leave? No type of trouble is going to continue is not going to continue harassing you which will end when you want to do something you will say do i do it for Allah subhanho wa Taala? Or do I do it for other people for their satisfaction and approval, and you know that everybody else is gonna die, but he's the one who's gonna stay. So you say it's for a lot. And when it turns to a loss of Hannah without a loss and serenity, and calm and peace to your heart. When it's the hereafter other than this dunya your
perspective will change your priority will change your personality, your personality will start changing, be more tolerant, more forgiving, you'll have a smile on your face. Even if you're going through some hardship, you will have a smile on your face. Why? Because you're not connected to that trouble. You're not governed by it. You're not governed by the shaitaan who's telling you you're going to be poor, you're going to face even more trouble you're not connected to that you can actually do to Allah subhanho wa Taala who reminds you, no, I'm going to give you forgiveness. And I'm going to give you prosperity and what awaits you the next life is a lot better than what you
have here a lot better than what you have here. So remember Allah subhanho wa Taala so he can help you. What are other benefits of the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala
if you want sustenance from Allah provisions, you want a lot to help you with it. Remember last time
they weren't they came to a companion or a follower of the companions and hustle and bustle. They told him we don't have a lot of wealth a lot of money we're in need. Caesar this tequila, just ask Allah for forgiveness. And in more than one place in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that if you engage in the rooms of real remembrance of Allah especially is still far Allah subhana wa tada will provide to you, but you have to believe and you have to trust
for her to come in who can have a photo you see the semiotic Mitra
ask Allah for forgiveness because he is are forgiving. And Allah subhana wa tada will send the rains pouring on you that is where the sustenance comes from. So you want Allah subhana wa Taala to open doors for you. You want to watch the power to Allah to bless what he already has given you.
Take the key of this, asking Allah for forgiveness. Take the key of the remembrance of Allah subhana wa.
And if you want assistance with other types of worship,
because as we said, you're fasting is only just remembering Allah. Eureka is only remembering a lot if you want assistance with other types of worship, that you might find difficult,
that you might actually be performing but you have lost somehow or we have lost somehow the taste the sweetness of that worship, engage in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala repeatedly and often and as much as you can. And Allah subhana wa Taala will restore that taste of that worship for you and will make it easy for you to perform it.
That's why that man when he went to the messengers of Allah, Allah you it was Solomon Yes. One thing took me hold on to he said remember Allah because when you remember Allah, everything else falls in order.
akula Cody had our stuff in a lot he would have confessed.
Hamdan cathinones even Moroccan fee will suddenly was suddenly monado Sunni Mohammed while he was happy about
our speech is not theoretical only.
And so it can have a practical aspect to it, I want to discuss select remembrance of Allah subhana wa Taala. And I want you inshallah, to concentrate and take if you can do all of them, then it happened in a little bit earlier. And if you already are doing all of them, then hamdulillah but if not, then try to do all of them. But if not pick one, concentrate on one of them and say this is the one that I'm going to hold on to and practice and see what is going to happen. So that your Eman can increase and your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala can even be better and better. So first if you do not know it, inshallah, listen carefully, if you know all of them but you're not practicing
them, practice or at least one. And if Allah had blessed you and you know all of them and you practiced all of them, then I want you to do something very important which is I want you to go and teach it to one person.
It could be a spouse, it could be your child, it could be a neighbor, it could be a family member, but pick one and teach it to them. And as long as they will continue doing it, that reward will come to you very easily reorder.
The only thing that you do is just teach it. The first one.
He said sallallahu wasallam and Allah Subhana Allah Who are the new will be handy sapan Allahu Allah Vimeo will be handy. will reset Luna latinfeels Jana,
the one who says sapan Allahu la Lima be handy.
A date tree will be planted for him in paradise. Just that statement.
You have a house in paradise.
I'm not making this up. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that you have a house in Paradise, whether you're going to make it there or not, is not an issue. You already have it. And if Allah blesses you, and rescues you from Hellfire, you will see it.
And if you want to plant and develop that house, is your chance. SubhanAllah I love him or be humbly or Subhana Allah He will be hemmed in, you have a tree.
And the day trees by the way, are very expensive in this role. They're not cheap.
And they're even more expensive over there. They do look a lot like what we note here, they may have gold.
So if you want something especially when you look at your life and you compare it to someone else, when she tells you look at somebody else's life, he has more than Bell blessed more favorite more, he has this, this this and you don't when that happens, remember this Vicar and engage in it say today by the will of Allah subhanaw taala want to have 100 trees in Paradise and engage in it. teach it to someone else. And you will feel the satisfaction overwhelming you
because that is the promise of Allah and the promise of His Messenger so Lavalle you earlier said so this is the first one
The second one
faulty model, the low unha comes to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon the advice of her husband, do not be silent.
Because she has been so overworked,
doing housework. And it has lifted smart on her hands and on and on her shoulder. And he she couldn't continue with it. It was very difficult for her. She wanted to come to the prophet and asked to help provide her with a servant. She didn't find him. So she went back home. The Prophet knew about what she wanted. So when he came, and both Olive knew her husband and she was there he came. And he said, allow kabiru gonna be hiring, documenting masal to Mashallah not tell you about something better than what you've asked for?
What is it?
He says, You say Subhana Allah 33 times before you go to bed.
And hamdulillah 33 times Allahu Akbar 34 times harder for her the hirundo Manhattan, this will be better for you than a servant.
Just before you go to bed, just before you go to bed, you say, and it doesn't take that much time from us 33 times to Panama 33 times and hamdulillah 34 times Allahu Akbar, and you're done.
And he says, you will see when you continue doing that, the effect of that the next day.
Because he asked for physical health, he said better than that physical health, Allah will give you best interpretation of Allah will give you the blessing, the strength, the determination, to be able to do whatever you want to do. So if you find yourself exhausted, tired, out of time, out of breath, without the mood without the ability to do something, engaging that that's a prophetic medicine, better than any physical medicine that you're going to take, you are linking yourself to the last panel with that. So engaging that.
Now you can add something extra to that.
If you have the ability, if you want to add something extra. He said sallallahu Sallam in another Hadith he says two things that if a Muslim does, he'll enter Paradise. And there's so easy called omega C, or Holy Roman Yama, Ruby when it says they are simple and easy to do, but very few will actually practice them.
What is it called a 274 law? I shoulda woulda, coulda, shoulda woulda, coulda, woulda, shoulda woulda, coulda Salah, he says after every Salah, this is what you're going to say. So Pamela 10 times hamdulillah 10 times. Allahu Akbar 10 times. Kala fatica Mia to him soon I believe this is 150 on the tongue for the five daily prayers right 150 alfen Welcome. Soumya Hill meezan 1500 with the scale with Allah subhana wa Tada. And before you go to bed, use you say Subhana Allah 33 times, and 133 times Allahu Akbar 34 times like the second hottie that we mentioned Kamiya to Phyllis and this is 100 on the tongue 1000 with Allah subhana wa tada Fukuyama rufio I'll find me at Hashanah Which
one of you commits a day in a single day 2500 cents
so if you want your scale to tip in your favor to this
well the sheet only view
that's why it's not easy to stomach leave you for k omega zero minyama Rubina Khalid How is it that it's not easy for people to do color either when he preys on a kiddo who can
live in salvati, he says he will remind him you have this and you have that you've got to go up and you have and you will leave before he does this simple thing. Why da da da da who you know who it is when he wants to go to bed and he wants to say this let him go to sleep. You'll have a very sound sleep when you want to say ticker Tomas upon our data, you will never stay up because they just don't is gonna come. Hey, sleep, because I don't want to hear the numbers of Allah subhanaw taala. But if you're serious about it, how much does it take from our time, but it takes determination
minutes and you're done. But it's rumination. So if you want to be among the few, that Allah subhana wa Taala blesses, just engage in that after every Salah starting from this divine shala and then to also measure the ratio and so on 1010 1010 1010 and you're done before you go to sleep, you know, be aware of the plots of the Shavasana before you go to sleep, don't lie down just sit and then say all of them then you know lie down if you wish. And the last thing inshallah before we leave
Most of you saw a lot of you it was selling them also said Magnum Coleman he was soon emerged as a net kurunegala hace la cama de facto Mr.
Ratan Yama, Yama, he says there are no group of people who will be in a setting sitting together chatting, talking.
And they rise and leave without mentioning the name of Allah during their stay. Except that they would leave as if they have left a carcass of a donkey and the donkey behind and it will be regret for them on the Day of Judgment.
That is if you sit and you're talking, and you don't remember Allah subhana wa tada at all. And perhaps you're engaging in some other things that displease Allah. When you leave, it's as if you've left a rotten, dead animal behind. That's what Allah subhanaw taala looks at it. And when you face a lot on the Day of Judgment, you will say why didn't I remember Allah during that day? Why didn't I ask Allah for forgiveness? So whenever you sit with your family, with friends, whatever setting lets your tongue flow with the remembrance of Allah Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah Masha Allah hasta la something like that.
So that that setting would be blessed and you will not regret it when you meet Allah subhana wa tada and you can conclude by saying what szczepanik Aloma will be handig a shadow Allah Allah hyena and a structural kawakubo and if you need this inshallah after the Salah, I can write it for you or I can repeat it for you. So panic alarm I will be handing a shadow Allah hyena and stuff like what is this do when you say it at the conclusion of every setting? messenger said it I can imagine so this can be a useful one if you're setting a good setting, remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala reading the Koran or in the study circle something like that, you say it at the conclusion it will be like a
put on it. When will this seal be opened? When you meet Allah soprano data be protected and preserved for us that this is the seed If not, if this is a image, this level idle talk, a talk that allow me not like or not favorable, not recommended, what happens can occur farther than that it will expiate the sense whatever you said there.
So inshallah pick one of them or if you know more, take as many as you want. But the essential message brothers and sisters that are remind myself first before I remind you is that do not forget remembering Allah Subhana Allah to Allah after Ramadan and engage in his remembrance is this is like the water to your heart without it Your heart will die. Your soul will shrivel.
So we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us of those who remember him often. Allah make us of those who remember you often. And that you also remember often Allah elevate our ranks in Paradise will elevate our ranks in Paradise will elevate our ranks in Paradise. Allah forgive our all of our sins and the sins of our families and the sins of all the Muslims. Allah forgive our sins and the sins of our families and the sins of all the Muslims. All we ask you that you protect all the Muslims throughout the world, while we asked you that you protect them and aid them while we asked you that you protect them and ate them while we asked you that you forgive all of our sins and the sins of
