In Alhamdulillah enamorado when is the you know who want to stop futile? When oh the villa him in Cerulean fusina was a TR Medina, Mejia Hilda who Philomel de la Wilma youth lil fella ha de ella. Wash her do hola ilaha illallah wa sallahu la sharika oneno Mohammed and Abdullah who are a Zulu sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam

00:00:30--> 00:00:48

Udolpho in the halal Hadith the Kitab Allah He to Anna. Well here on the head you had to Mohammed and sallallahu alayhi wasallam were shahrul OMO Ramos the third to her Wakulla Maha 13 vida Wakulla be the item Bala Wakulla Allah Allah to infinity and my bad.

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

Allah azza wa jal has truly blessed us with the favor of Ramadan.

00:00:57--> 00:00:59

Just imagine that you have a month

00:01:01--> 00:01:08

where you could be absolutely forgiven and absolved of all sins. Like no matter what you've done.

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

No matter the shortcomings.

00:01:12--> 00:01:15

The door of Toba is so wide open,

00:01:16--> 00:01:22

that you can make a full return to Allah azza wa jal and wipe clean all of your past.

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

As if all the pain of the past did not exist.

00:01:27--> 00:01:30

If Allah azza wa jal just accepts

00:01:31--> 00:01:44

month where you know that the old the gates of Jinnah are open. So if you are going to enter if there is a chance that you're going to enter one of the greatest chances for it are in the month of Ramadan.

00:01:46--> 00:01:51

And if all the doors of hellfire are closed, if there is ever a chance that you will be saved from it,

00:01:53--> 00:01:55

Ramadan is such an opportunity

00:01:57--> 00:02:06

Subhan Allah, we may forget but every fasting person has an accepted supplication to every single day. Just imagine

00:02:08--> 00:02:11

that if you are aware of that, and you keep making do

00:02:14--> 00:02:19

that by the will of Allah azza wa jal there is a guaranteed dua for you in the month of Ramadan

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

and to be freed from hellfire

00:02:25--> 00:02:30

and to be given rewards beyond the human ability to count.

00:02:32--> 00:02:43

Because he said, Sal, Allahu Allah, he was a lender Allah azza wa jal said I do multiply deeds, up to 700 times and more Illa Psalm except for fasting.

00:02:44--> 00:03:04

It is for me and I reworded meaning it goes beyond the multiplication of 10 and 700. For each ordinary good deed fasting is very different. So as you're fasting, whether you are in a good mood or sometimes in a bad mood because you didn't have enough sleep, you don't have enough food.

00:03:05--> 00:03:15

All of that. Allah azza wa jal is telling you, if you could only see the reward that is waiting for you. When you do this,

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

you would wish that it would never end

00:03:20--> 00:03:23

you would wish that it was even harder.

00:03:24--> 00:03:30

Because you cannot imagine the reward when you meet Allah azza wa jal similar to who?

00:03:32--> 00:03:35

To the sick and the healthy on the Day of Judgment.

00:03:36--> 00:03:57

Now today, when you see a sick person, what do you say? And you have every right to say that Al Hamdulillah the Afghani Alhamdulillah Therefore Allah Azza did who protected me from this illness and that illness and this thing? Is such a heart condition to go through life doing this, or suffering from this.

00:03:58--> 00:04:01

On the Day of Judgment, you won't say that.

00:04:04--> 00:04:06

What would you say on the Day of Judgment?

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

I wish I had a sickness.

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

I wish I had had his ordeal.

00:04:13--> 00:04:47

I wish I had this difficulty. Why do you say this? Because when you see how Allah azza wa jal honors them, or honors you, oh, you hold going through difficult times, and you're looking at your neighbors or family and say, How come I'm the only one who's depressed or down are tired or sad or afflicted, everybody else is having fun and everybody else is laughing. How come remember this even if you're not going through difficult times now, later on, because this is life later on. If you go through something, just remember that.

00:04:48--> 00:04:52

That if you only could see the route of Allah azza wa jal for what you're going through.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

You would say give me more. And you shouldn't say give me more. You don't know if you can take it. But you will say give me

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


00:05:02--> 00:05:07

so here in Ramadan Allah has given you an opportunity

00:05:10--> 00:05:12

but it's not enough just to have an opportunity

00:05:13--> 00:05:35

he must have the mind and the heart to take advantage of it. I could give you have a million dollars but you could not see the value of that million dollars see you wouldn't take it. Allah azza wa jal could give you a Ramadan but you may not see the value of Ramadan so you don't take advantage of it. So it's not enough to have Ramadan you must have also with Ramadan what the heart be a

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

Decatur Ahmad Ramadan with which heart are you living in Ramadan?

00:05:42--> 00:05:55

What I want to emphasize is that Allah azza wa jal when he gives you an opportunity and you see yourself moved, and when he opens a door for you, you rush and you take advantage of it. Because you don't know when that doors will be closed.

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

Allah azza wa jal

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

says Sadie are Willa Filati Mia, Ravi Kumar Jana rush to a forgiveness of your Rob and a paradise.

00:06:12--> 00:06:15

The width of it is the width of the heavens and the earth.

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

That is not just simply walk.

00:06:20--> 00:06:23

Now just simply wait

00:06:25--> 00:06:31

and think about it. No rush, rush, run to it.

00:06:33--> 00:06:39

In fact, compete in fact compete when you see someone next to you

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

who is doing something good.

00:06:43--> 00:06:48

You say to yourself, am I going to be less than so and so?

00:06:49--> 00:06:52

Do I want to be left behind? compete?

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

Allah azza wa jal says we're fee that DECA

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

Valley at an office in Santa Fe soon. Just when he spoke about heaven, he says Wi Fi there are Lika Valley at an office in Santa Fe soon and in this and for this, let those who compete compete.

00:07:14--> 00:07:14

compete for what?

00:07:16--> 00:07:18

For a bigger house

00:07:19--> 00:07:20

and your car.

00:07:21--> 00:07:31

Bragging Rights about where you graduated from or where your son is over God is going to be graduating from how much you earn, what do you compete for what are you competing

00:07:33--> 00:07:34

and better than you

00:07:36--> 00:07:56

know, in the Hereafter, and the structure of the sentence by the way in the Arabic language where Allah says if he that he can in that let them those who want to compete compete means that only in this you should compete the structure of the Arabic clan sentence. That is only in this should you compete.

00:07:57--> 00:08:03

Confirming this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about the dunya

00:08:04--> 00:08:11

letaba Goo what are the Dabur for Su Well, Coonoor Eva Allah He Juana

00:08:12--> 00:08:18

it says don't hate each other. Don't turn your backs on each other and don't compete.

00:08:20--> 00:08:33

The prophets Allah Selim is talking about a different competition, right? What is that competition? As a worldly competition? He says don't compete. As if I see you rich. Is it don't look at that.

00:08:35--> 00:08:37

What I do it in a can home

00:08:38--> 00:08:40

to D to Z in its entirety. Dunya

00:08:41--> 00:09:00

don't look beyond them. Do you want the adornment of this life? Allah azza wa jal tells us Prophet sallallahu Sallam if you're reading Surah TCAF today or if you've read it hamdulillah if not, you're going to read it be the Allah azza wa jal because it's sunnah. You will read that in it. He tells him Hamid sallallahu alayhi wa sallam telling who

00:09:01--> 00:09:02

matches you and me Muhammad.

00:09:03--> 00:09:16

Ali is Salatu was Salam said with those who are remembering Allah azza wa jal don't look beyond them. You want the pleasure that dormant of this life? Don't look beyond it. Because when you look you will desire it.

00:09:17--> 00:09:27

Right? Like if you're driving and you see some of us do this, or what is this car that has passed me or it's this model of that here, when you look what do you do?

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

You desire

00:09:31--> 00:09:36

you desire. So what is he tell his prophet sal Allahu Allahu Allah wa salam tombak.

00:09:38--> 00:09:47

So that you do not want do what? So you don't desire because if you desire you will be attached to this life. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, Don't compete.

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

Meaning if you have graduated from this hamdulillah good for you, but I don't need to look at what you're doing and evaluate myself based on it. I'm not going to compete with

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


00:10:01--> 00:10:10

when it comes to your wealth, or house, or your neighborhood, or your car, or all of this, I'm not going to do that.

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

manifesta Caffee dunya phenethyl Soufeel are here. If somebody competes with you in the dunya you visit a family

00:10:21--> 00:10:28

and they say, What's your job? And how much do you earn and you feel low because of it because they are doing better.

00:10:30--> 00:11:04

So that's saying goes, if they are competing with you in the dunya compete with them in the era, put your effort in the earth era, because that's the thing that's gonna last that's the thing that will continue beyond this life. See, everything that you compete for in this dunya will perish you and the richest person will be buried in the same cemetery under the same ground facing the same consequences all that they've earned leaves them and you enter the grave

00:11:06--> 00:11:12

oh well Amara like we created you in the beginning Exactly.

00:11:13--> 00:11:16

What did you compete for? All left you

00:11:17--> 00:11:24

it all pan it vanished. Except your deeds they go with you. That's the only thing that lasts.

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

So compete for what?

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

rush towards what?

00:11:31--> 00:11:32

So you see.

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

Prophet sallallahu sallam said in a hadith

00:11:39--> 00:11:41

he said LA has said that he left with nothing.

00:11:43--> 00:11:45

There is no envy except in two things.

00:11:47--> 00:11:52

Origin Luneta hola hola Khurana Hua Liu who? Feed lady on her?

00:11:54--> 00:12:17

First Name Yahoo Jarrah. HuFa Carla Yeah, late and you will see to miss La Fuller and family to miss Armani. The first is someone that Allah had taught the Quran to they have the Quran, they've memorized it. They've learned it. So they recite it day and night. So his neighbor hears him and he says, I wish that Allah had given me we would have given you so I could do the same.

00:12:19--> 00:12:29

What I do Luneta hula hula man and for Salla Allahu Allah Halakhah de fille hub. For all who Jr, who offers me I'll be here roof Acharya lightning OTT Mithuna OTF, who learn

00:12:30--> 00:12:35

for fall to Mithuna Maria fall and another that Allah azza wa jal had given him money.

00:12:37--> 00:12:39

And he spends it for Allah sake.

00:12:40--> 00:12:51

He spends he says under halacha t mean, he spends so much of it for Allah sake. So his neighbor looks at him and he says, I wish that Allah had given me what he had given him so I could do the same.

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

You see, here envy is not a

00:12:56--> 00:13:03

evil envy. You don't wish them to lose what they have. You just switched to have what they have. They call it crypto.

00:13:04--> 00:13:12

But when the prophets Allah, Allah, he was selling them negated envy, meaning that you shouldn't be envious of anything that another person has ever

00:13:13--> 00:13:35

except for to other than that, if you see that he's rich, and you're not, don't be envious. It doesn't matter. You don't know if that's good for him or not. Not all money is good money. If you see that he's famous don't envy him. You don't know if that fame will take him to Jana or Johanna, I don't know, though envy him. It's nothing.

00:13:36--> 00:13:47

If you see him as graduated from this or that he has a lot of children or a lot of wealth or all of whatever in this dunya don't envy him it's not worth your envy or attention.

00:13:49--> 00:14:08

That's what Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said, it's not worth your attention. It's not worth your sadness. It's not worth you planning that I need to be as rich or otherwise I'm a failure. I need to be as successful or otherwise as a failure. I'm a failure. It's not worth your attention.

00:14:10--> 00:14:18

It's not worth your agony is the only thing that is worth that you see someone who has the Quran and you say I want to have that

00:14:20--> 00:14:27

and you do what you can as long as you're alive to get it. And you see someone who has money but not just money.

00:14:28--> 00:14:36

Money that is spent for Allah sake and you say I wish I had that money to do what he's doing not I wish I had money.

00:14:38--> 00:14:39

Not I wish that I had money.

00:14:42--> 00:14:53

Because sal Allahu Allah, you were sitting them sit in a hadith once when he was walking with a Buddha or the Allahu Anhu it's a hypothetical if someone were to tell you what if you had mountains of gold, what would you do?

00:14:54--> 00:14:58

Think about it. Like honestly with yourself.

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

If you had mountain

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

tons of gold.

00:15:02--> 00:15:04

Give this hypothetical to your children.

00:15:05--> 00:15:17

Teach them if they're not here when you go back home. Give them that hypothetical in the hotbar. They told us this. Want to just test you if you had mountains of gold.

00:15:19--> 00:15:24

I don't know what that would be millions or billions of dollars, but mountains of gold, what would you do?

00:15:26--> 00:15:29

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us what he would do.

00:15:31--> 00:15:36

And you know that when he says that he is Salatu was Salam. He's telling you the truth about what he would do.

00:15:37--> 00:15:42

Because when he was walking with Abu Dhabi, Radi Allahu anhu, he says Abu Dhabi, do you see this mountain of a hood?

00:15:44--> 00:15:52

You've been to Medina, you've seen how big it is. You see how big a hood is? You can imagine like, how do you think just it's a small amount. It's really huge.

00:15:53--> 00:16:14

He said, Abu Dhabi, you see, this mountain of a hood, is that if I had the equal of a hood in gold, I would not love that three nights would pass and I have anything of it. I would spend it all for Allah sake, except something that I would save if I have a debt just to pay my debt. But then, beyond that, if I had

00:16:15--> 00:16:22

made of gold, I will give it all to Allah azza wa jal. This is an Busara This is rushing

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

to obey Allah azza wa jal.

00:16:26--> 00:16:39

This is loving Allah azza wa jal and this is the mindset that you want to have in Ramadan. And we'll talk about this in sha Allah in the second hotbar holo holy ha That was the chroma Ali welcome pastor Phil.

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

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Hamdan cathedra until even Mubarak and fie he will suddenly we'll send him one or a Sunni Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam.

00:17:08--> 00:17:13

When Allah azza wa jal asked Musa to come for that appointment.

00:17:15--> 00:17:19

And Allah azza wa jal asks Musa Why did you rush?

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

Why did you come early?

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

Musa beautifully replies, why I do to La kirribilli tadoba

00:17:29--> 00:17:33

and I rushed to you here Allah azza wa jal so that you'd be pleased and happy.

00:17:34--> 00:17:36

Well, I do to La Kirby.

00:17:37--> 00:17:47

I that you called me when he came early. Why did you come early on we said, why don't you go to LA kharab be the third da so that you'd be happy.

00:17:49--> 00:18:05

Every opportunity that Allah has zodion is gonna give you in the month of Ramadan is such an opportunity. If he opens for you adore for the meaning you feel like I want to make dua, you guess what, who opened your heart to want to make dua

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

who did that?

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

Isn't it Allah azza wa jal?

00:18:11--> 00:18:17

Isn't that a gift? You're going to close that door? What is the matter with you make dua

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

if Allah had opened your heart me that I feel like I want to make dua make dua Allah has opened your heart for to make it or you feel like I want to remember Allah azza wa jal I want to say as the federal law he's just gonna let this pass make us too far siesta through Allah was inviting you say as Rula stuff federal law, state federal law, they announced the

00:18:42--> 00:19:06

and maybe for a moment you felt maybe I want to try and come of course, of course do it. And rush to it a total with a few cliche in theory Illa Emeril era, he said, Sal, Allahu Allahu Sidner. being prudent and staying back and thinking about things is beautiful and all things except matters of the akhira matters of the Hereafter, meaning you rush to get it.

00:19:08--> 00:19:11

If Allah Azza did it, open your heart for sadaqa

00:19:13--> 00:19:13


00:19:15--> 00:19:17

because Allah azza wa jal invited you

00:19:19--> 00:19:55

If Allah has loaded and open your heart to feed the hungry, do it. If Allah Azza Vinod, open your heart and he said, and you say, I feel like O'Meara and I feel like Hajj, will of course Allah had put it in you because Allah wants you to be there. So go after that. If Allah azza wa jal had put in your heart, the desire to invite people to Islam do it, whatever good deed you at this moment or later in the Ramadan, you're going to feel like you want to do rush and do it because Allah wants that from you. And don't let somebody else reach Allah before you.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

What do you see someone who had was praying in the first line

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

If you should wish for that, and usually will come early for it. When you see someone spending for the sake of Allah azza wa jal say I'm not going to be left behind. Why should I be left behind?

00:20:11--> 00:20:18

I will compete with everyone as long as they can, because I want to be with Allah azza wa jal among the righteous

00:20:19--> 00:20:20

use see when

00:20:21--> 00:20:26

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam invited Muslims to donate.

00:20:28--> 00:20:30

And overall Hatha

00:20:31--> 00:20:35

said what? He said, If I can outdo Abu Bakr

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

in any day, I will outdo him today.

00:20:41--> 00:20:47

If I can do better than aboubaker, and any day, I will do it today. So he brought how much of his money,

00:20:49--> 00:20:49

half of it

00:20:51--> 00:20:57

but it tells you about a mindset that Omar Radi Allahu Anhu had which is what I you know, I will bet Ken beats me

00:20:58--> 00:21:07

so that I'm gonna keep my eye on him. And I will try to outdo him not because I want to be better than him because I want to be better.

00:21:08--> 00:21:13

Because I want to be better. So he brings half of his money

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

and the prophets Allah alayhi salam astir Booba Omar, how much did you bring from your all of your wealth? He said half of it.

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

Half of it by the way.

00:21:25--> 00:21:35

That just in itself just requires 510 minutes of contemplation, can I go home and bring half of what I have and give it to Allah azza wa jal incredible

00:21:36--> 00:21:41

50% of what you own goes to Allah Allah just like that.

00:21:43--> 00:21:44

May Allah make us like that?

00:21:46--> 00:21:57

So he said, How much did you bring? He said the half of it. Then the mobile can brings money. He said a while back. How much did you bring? He said all of it.

00:22:00--> 00:22:01

All of it.

00:22:03--> 00:22:09

Then Omar Radi Allahu Anhu said it says I knew that I could never outdone Him or do him.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

I could never compete with him.

00:22:14--> 00:22:23

If on the day that Omar Radi Allahu Anhu thought I could do the maximum that I don't think aboubaker can do and overcrowd does him he says I cannot

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

compete with a rulebook.

00:22:27--> 00:22:30

But that's the type of competition that we want to have.

00:22:32--> 00:22:32

It says

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

that the person in Jannah

00:22:36--> 00:22:40

will look up and they will see something like lightning.

00:22:42--> 00:22:43

And he said what is that light?

00:22:46--> 00:22:53
