Oh Rama

00:00:03--> 00:00:03

Rama

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

Murthy merci.

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

Welcome Rama,

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

Rama

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

on this very first evening of Ramadan. So much will be shared about the beauty of the days that awaits us and I wonder if the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was with us today. And he had access to social media.

00:00:30--> 00:01:04

What would he have posted this evening? About the month of Ramadan? What would he have chosen to say? Well, I think that the following narration really does give us a hint about what he may have just said, because on one year, when Ramadan had arrived, he ascended the pulpit and made a public announcement to the Companions saying Khadija ACOEM Ramadan, Sharon Mobarak the month of Ramadan has come to you a blessing month.

00:01:05--> 00:01:15

If not, Allahu Allah Ecosa now, we're in Allah has obligated within it fasting to the Hafi of wobbel Jana, where the gates of paradise are opened,

00:01:16--> 00:01:43

where you will have coffee available to him and the gates of the Hellfire are locked up, but to run up he shall clean and the devils are chained up feel a little higher on mean elfish arraignment Halima Euro forgot to hold him. And within this month, there is a night that is superior to 1000 months, and whoever is deprived of the goodness of night has certainly been deprived. Those were his words.

00:01:44--> 00:02:27

Had the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam been with us on this evening, he would have most likely congratulated the Muslims for the gift of a month. The gift of a month that many of us are yet to appreciate the weight of that is why Imam Raja been humbly he said that some scholars have said this hadith, the one that we just cited this hadith is a key evidence for the practice of congratulating one another for the arrival of the month of Ramadan. And then he says Allahu Akbar. He said Why shouldn't the believer be congratulated when the gates of paradise have opened? Why should have the sinner be congratulated when the gates of hell have been closed?

00:02:29--> 00:02:38

Why shouldn't the intelligent one be congratulated for a time when the devils are chained? He said how can this month be compared to any other time?

00:02:40--> 00:03:02

So first things first, to all of those who are experiencing the very first night of Ramadan to all of those who attend to use the month of Ramadan as a month of reformation and serious worship and genuine change. I say to you, many many congratulations. Oh Rama

00:03:04--> 00:03:04
