Eman and watty Saba warfare Allah hoonah taka dynamin zombie out of belief in Allah and hoping in the reward of Allah will have his sins forgiven.

00:02:26--> 00:03:06

So congratulations to the ones who have earned these prizes. My condolences and commiseration are extended to those who have missed out on these opportunities and gifts are late pilot would say when the month of Ramadan was about to finish or had finished later, sorry, men in Baku, Mina Fado honey woman in Module Two in philosophy. He would say oh, I wonder whom among us here has had his worship accepted and home among us here has had his worship rejected so that we may offer him condolences.

What are you Halima home? Jabara? Lucha Muslim?

00:03:18--> 00:03:27

Oh, you whose deeds have been accepted by Allah, congratulations, and who you who has been rejected by Allah,

00:03:28--> 00:03:31

may Allah alleviate your calamity.

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

In these days,

00:03:34--> 00:03:45

the Muslim is to establish a special and private relationship with Allah and His to exert himself in a way, which he has never exerted himself before

00:03:46--> 00:04:13

you or to push yourself on myself as well in a way which we have never done. So before in terms of Ava and the worship of Allah. for three reasons, two of which are commonly known, the last of which is not so commonly known. The first reason why a Muslim should push himself now more than ever, is the well known reason that we are now bidding farewell to Ramadan less than a week's time it will be in to us as salaam alaikum.

00:04:15--> 00:04:26

And therefore, our mother I would say you cannot lie. So Lola while he was Alameda de la, la La, la, la, la, la gente. De was

00:04:27--> 00:04:48

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he would experience the last 10 nights of Ramadan. He would spend the entire night in the worship of Allah and he would wake up his family to do so as well. And he would be serious in the worship of Allah and he would strap up his waist high an indication of the seriousness of the messenger in these 10 days.

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

So the first reason is because we are bidding this month or well in less than a week's time. The second reason is because we are all now on average.

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

Spread pursuit for Laila. The Muslim now should be searching for Laila. More eagerly than a mother search for her last child.

00:05:13--> 00:05:34

Laila to cuddle is a day where if your worship coincides with it, as you know, it is how you don't mean elfish are better than 1000 months, that is over, or approximately 82 years of worship for one day, that's what I call an investment. And that's what I call value for your ibid.

00:05:35--> 00:05:54

Imagine an individual who reaches the age of puberty at the age of 13, and then dies at the age of 70. And fats, the Ramadan in between that's 57 consecutive Ramadan, assuming his worship coincides with the Laila to cuddle every single year.

00:05:55--> 00:06:01

That's approximately four and a half 1000 years added to your dismally short life.

00:06:04--> 00:06:29

We are in search for laser cutter. This is the second reason why we are in pursuit and we should be exerting ourselves in these days, more than ever before in the worship of ally one. And the third reason, which isn't so known by the masses, is because we are living in times when the worship of a law is becoming increasingly difficult and rare.

00:06:31--> 00:06:44

Because of the tribulations involved in our times, we must confess to this and we must be honest with ourselves. worshipping Allah today is not how it was yesterday and the days before. Other than that,

00:06:46--> 00:07:13

I am not referring to li da da Astoria. They are outward forms of worship. We are all engaged in that fasting and prostrating and giving charity. I'm referring to Allahabad and have the the true worship of Allah where your heart and soul is frustrating to Allah along with your body, your mind is clarified for the worst of Allah. This is what is becoming rare and difficult because of the fitting and the tribulations of the oma today.

00:07:16--> 00:07:21

And that is why the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say, as was narrated by Mark Ellis

00:07:23--> 00:07:27

and reported by a Muslim in his aiva to fill her g

00:07:28--> 00:07:42

ke gerat in LA. He who worships Allah, during times of Alhaji and I shall explain what that means in a moment will be given a reward similar to a person who has immigrated to me.

00:07:44--> 00:07:50

Look at the rewards of the earliest Shahada who immigrated from Mecca to Medina. The reward that they were given for

00:07:51--> 00:07:58

the Messenger of Allah Allah He was telling the saying, if you find the clarity of mind to worship Allah during times of unheard

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

your rewards will be like a person who has immigrated to not Medina, but to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam himself Allahu Akbar.

00:08:09--> 00:08:28

We are living through these difficult times what is allowed. in Malmo, Noah, we explained in his shop and he says, Well, morato belhar Jihoon and fitna, we learn how to move in US was Abu castrati about the fee and the National History una una

00:08:29--> 00:08:35

una Illa fraud. He says what is meant by the term inherent in the Heidi is times of

00:08:37--> 00:08:47

adventure things are not clear and the affairs of the oma are ambiguous. And he says the reason why the reward of worshipping Allah during those times is so great.

00:08:49--> 00:09:08

Because people are occupied, people are distracted and it is only select few individuals who free up their mind for the worship of Allah. We are going through these times at the local level fitness. Fitness has reached the very pocket of the Shabaab

00:09:09--> 00:09:21

sugarwod. doubtful matters spill on the on the left, right and center. Then media attacks everyone and everything to do with Islam and the movement of Islam.

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

Unprecedented illnesses, sudden deaths, internal conflict. And then when you look at the international political level, Egypt, Allahu Akbar is on fire. Syria is on fire. Allah is not with us turmoil in the Islamic world. We are experiencing times of hardship when things are not clear. Therefore, the nurses have been vacuumed and sucked up into these calamities, and the nurses have had their focus totally stripped away from them. Therefore, therefore, he or she who finds the ability to free up his or her mind

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

To worship Allah, heart, mind and soul will be given an abnormally great reward.

00:10:10--> 00:10:24

We are to push ourselves in these days, because Ramadan is bidding farewell, because we are in search for Laila to number three because we are living through testing times, the reward of which will be abnormally different.

00:10:26--> 00:10:37

enact and intention from now my beloved brother, that the moment Ramadan bid you farewell, you continue your acts of worship to the best of your ability all throughout the year

00:10:38--> 00:10:52

and turn off the lights once and for all upon your sins and bad habits. And if you do, then you are treading a profitable path. And this is one of the starkest indications that Allah

00:10:53--> 00:10:55

has accepted your acts of worship,

00:10:56--> 00:11:06

brothers who are saying give us indications that our acts of worship have been accepted in this month, our thirst and hunger, and now and Vicar

00:11:08--> 00:11:25

has been accepted. Give us an indication, this is one indication for me knew that you continue your ibid out side Ramadan as well, because as the scholars of Islam say, I'll have Santa the good deed gives birth to another good deed.

00:11:26--> 00:11:31

And when it does, it's an indication that Allah has accepted the first

00:11:32--> 00:11:50

you find that now I rather become sweeter to you than honey. And now Allah is opening up for you the doors have occupied and now entering these doors becomes the most beautiful thing to your heart. That is an indication that Allah has accepted your bed, it gives birth to another act of worship.

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

For

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

men, our Taka was

00:11:56--> 00:12:04

personally Acero de nuestra, Allah says he gives in charity, and has fear of Allah, wa.

00:12:06--> 00:12:49

And he believes in the best reward, we will ease for him a path of ease, look, Allah says we will ease for him a path of ease, I bet that becomes easy. I bet it becomes continuous, I bet that becomes perpetual, not a monthly endeavor. As for he who is already planning a wretched return to his sense, already planning from now the month of Ramadan departs, and he will return to his bad behavior and he would return to the illicit relationships and pornographic websites and music. This is one of the most manifests of indications that your iPad wasn't even lifted and taken up to Allah in the first place in the month of

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

March. He says

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

when he started for a belissa

00:12:58--> 00:13:00

while called bahala Matsuyama code

00:13:01--> 00:13:13

was mucho Anuradha lol mahasaya teabagger shout out for Surya mahana hemara dude, babble kabuli fever, he must dude.

00:13:15--> 00:13:25

He says, He who repents to Allah with his mouth, his tongue Forgive me, forgive me what law but his heart is insistent that he will return to sender.

00:13:26--> 00:13:32

Then his fasting has been rejected. And the door of acceptance has been closed in his face.

00:13:34--> 00:13:48

The first indication that your idea has been accepted in this method is that you continue what you can from it all throughout the year after Ramadan until there's a second indication that your fast has been accepted

00:13:49--> 00:14:36

is that upon the completion of fasting, Allah Almighty inspires your heart to repent to him and to seek His pardon and forgiveness. That's an indication Allahu Akbar, you come out of the month of forgiveness by asking Allah to forgive you. That's an indication. And when you look in the acts of Sharia, many of the acts of worship are concluded with Stefan, when you finished your solar, a great act of worship, you see a stark field of law. Pardon me, Allah forgive me over law, when you finish your pilgrimage or you are coming down from them out arafa Allah says, a few Domine highfather ness was done. Go from where people are going on the day of hygiene and ask Allah to forgive your sins.

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after 23 years of jihad, and worship and establishing a Muslim nation and sacrifice and he finally conquered Mecca. Allah says, Mr. Pharaoh, ask Allah to forgive your sins. In the night, you may have spent the entire night worshipping Allah doing Vicar and tm. But when the last portion of the light comes, what should you do? Allah says

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

One must stop feeling as though you repent to Allah in the last portion of the night. Therefore, it is incumbent upon us when this beautiful month departs, and now that we are still in it, to ask Allah to forgive our shortcomings in this month, to forgive to ask Allah to pardon. Our incomplete act of worship is deficient and incomplete to pardon us for our sluggishness to pardon us our complaints and complacency to pardon us for the labor that was mixed with sin and pride and showing off

00:15:33--> 00:15:41

cutterbar Omar Abdullah zz LLM saw the team Lucia Ramadan, Minister, Masada

00:15:43--> 00:15:54

Omar Abdullah has sent a letter to the countries that were under his rule saying to them, make sure that you end the month of Ramadan with repentance to Allah and the Sunnah, fatale.

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

And he said in his letter,

00:15:58--> 00:16:02

repeat the words of your father,

00:16:04--> 00:16:20

alumna and Susana or electone, Elena, Elena coonan. Allah, we have wronged ourselves, and if you do not forgive us and pardon us, we will be from the losers. He said to them in the letter, repeat the words of no prophet nor who said,

00:16:21--> 00:16:31

If you leave me a comment. If you don't forgive me, and pardon me, I would be among the losers. Repeat the words of Moosa, who said

00:16:33--> 00:17:22

in the UFC, or be in the LM two NFC first, Verily, my Lord, I have wronged myself, so please forgive me. Repeat the words of the known who said La Ilaha Illa. Anta subhanak in niku, Amina Valley me there is no god worthy of worship except few subhanak. I have been from the wrongdoers. Repeat the words of Ibrahim, who said well let the Atma young Pharaoh leave to Medina. He is a law of hope, forgive my sins, on the Day of Resurrection. This is the affair of the believer. This is the affair of the elderly, the close friend of Allah, He puts forward a good deed to the best of his ability. And when he does, he raises his hands to Allah and said, Oh ally, did you accept our law? Pardon me

00:17:22--> 00:17:27

for my shortcomings. Forgive me, I have not worshipped you as you should be worshipped.

00:17:28--> 00:17:50

As we finished the month of Ramadan, the Muslim should gather in his heart between two emotions. The first is an incredible sense of hope in the mercy of Allah, because he has given you permission to worship Him. And the second emotion is incredible sense of fear that perhaps Allah may reject your act of worship hamdulillah

00:18:01--> 00:18:06

Al Hamdulillah wa salatu salam, ala Nabi Ababa, an athlete

00:18:07--> 00:18:12

in the 2000 or 3000 meter race, finds himself accelerating

00:18:13--> 00:19:01

the most, just before he reaches the finish line. And lo and behold, we have almost reached the finish line of the month of Ramadan and thus Now is the time to exert ourselves like never before. Now is the time to give your worship attention like you have never done before. Now is the time to weep over your sins, to weep over your eyes, that does not weep, to weep over your heart that does not humble itself from the fear and love of Allah. Now is the time before the month of Ramadan finishes. When Allah Almighty speaks about how we should be on Earth, on this world, Allah says from shoe from shoe FEMA nakida, walk, walk in the path of Allah. And Allah says,

00:19:04--> 00:19:04

Allah,

00:19:05--> 00:19:35

the slaves of Allah, man, are those who walk on the earth calmly, solemnly. But then now look at how on last week's about our relationship with good deeds and the Allahu Akbar, the language of the Quran now changes all together. And now when Allah speaks about Vicki, Vicki, Allah says, first of all, Eliza karela, rush, walk, rush to the remembrance of Allah to Allah. When Allah speaks about our relationship with good deeds, Allah says a steady

00:19:36--> 00:19:59

race in good deeds. When Allah Allah speaks about paradise and his forgiveness. He says, Sorry, I was to race and rush to the forgiveness of Allah and His paradise. When Allah Almighty speaks about his majestic self, how we should be with him. He says fulfill in Allah rush to Allah escape to Allah, to Allah to Allah.

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

To be in

00:20:02--> 00:20:03

a love your honor in

00:20:04--> 00:20:09

Saudi Arabia because the rights of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said calmness.

00:20:10--> 00:20:19

tranquility is good in everything, except in the deeds of that you should rush to that you mustn't procrastinate that you mustn't delay.

00:20:22--> 00:20:35

Ramadan is about to leave. And Ramadan has ascended its mount Ramadan has settled on its own. Ramadan has picked up its whip and is about to give us farewell. Are you aggrieved?

00:20:37--> 00:20:38

Or are you relieved?

00:20:39--> 00:20:44

Are you saddened at the departure of Ramadan? That's a sign of Eman

00:20:45--> 00:20:51

or are you relieved? Good riddance. That Ramadan is leaving? That is not a sign of Eman?

00:20:52--> 00:21:03

Are you amongst those who repeat? After that righteous Polish would cry? lamenting himself over the departure of Ramadan saying? Yeah, me Phil buka

00:21:04--> 00:21:08

zddp Caliph was a hadith

00:21:09--> 00:21:12

Makana Santa was shalom Mooji Tommy

00:21:13--> 00:21:58

Lee makani to carry. He would say don't blame me for my tears as I bid Ramadan farewell. How beautiful were we as Muslims gathered, pray and recycling? Allah? Are you from that group out of the makers from this group who have felt and experienced the sweetness of Islam of this month and recognize with honesty, our criminality and our injustice to Allah subhanho wa Taala Are you from the second group with That wretched group? Who says good riddance Ramadan welcome back to my sense of Ramadan returned to my day to day routine go back. Like that sick poet who said well Allah God for hottie hi Asahi Mustafa attend Casa de la mustafi.

00:21:59--> 00:22:02

He said the Ramadan has gone finally.

00:22:04--> 00:22:05

So reunites me with my wine.

00:22:07--> 00:22:10

reunite me like two lovers are reunited after they were far apart.

00:22:12--> 00:22:41

He who is planning a return to sins and smoking and shisha after Ramadan, was never from the people of Ramadan. He who was planning to miss his Salah in congregation after Ramadan was not from the people of Ramadan. He who is planning to retreat and reverse to his previous habits and behavior and not conduct and manage after Ramadan was never from the people of Ramadan to begin with.

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

The law history says

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

you have

00:22:51--> 00:23:01

to do good deeds, he says they are done by the good and the bad Muslim. However, it is only as to do a truthful Muslim who abstains from since

00:23:02--> 00:23:49

I know and I'm perhaps you do as well, drug dealers who are fasting in this month praying in this month, perhaps even weeping in this month. fornicators. Those who consume alcohol who deal with interest, they are fasting this month and praying with us. This is done by the guy that the good Muslim, May Allah give us he die and then as for those who stay away from things, that's a different level altogether. This is the CIC D This is the truth for Muslims. Allah Almighty says My beloved, while at akula keleti naka de la mina Overton and katha says, Don't be like see who unused her thread which she had spun, after it had become strong. You and I have been spinning a thread for an

00:23:49--> 00:23:59

entire one. worshipping Allah preparing our estates in Paradise, which we hope we will claim one day. Don't unspin that thread.

00:24:00--> 00:24:31

Don't throw away your assets. Don't throw away the deeds that you have been so eagerly trying to claim. Continue your acts of worship all throughout the year. Have you ever seen an individual who spends a lifetime and that's well, and then finally, when he has a huge sum of money, he displays it to the public to take from it as they wish without guards and without protections? Of course not that would be stupid because his money would deplete his efforts with deplete.

00:24:32--> 00:24:51

Likewise, is an individual who has been spinning a thread and worshipping Allah eagerly for an entire month. Then the first day of aid comes in a day which is supposed to be a day of gratitude. And it begins with savings or reversion towards bad habits. You will have knocked out all of the good deeds that you have done.

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

Ask yourself my beloved. What have you taken from Madonna? What have I taken from the month of Ramadan

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

What are the what are the effects of this month on me? after Ramadan? If my deeds have been accepted by Allah, then I need to see Ramadan with me in chawan and the hijab

00:25:13--> 00:25:20

and all of the months of the year, a lot Allah speaks about a certain group of disbelievers saying, what is

00:25:23--> 00:25:24

the Hello Bill coffre

00:25:27--> 00:25:29

Allah says they come to you these disbelievers

00:25:30--> 00:25:32

and they say to you, we believe

00:25:33--> 00:25:57

they come to you Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with disbelief and they leave from your gathering as disbelievers as well. In other words, they came as believers, they listen to your body, they listen to the Quran, but they left your gathering with the same disbelief in their heart they did not benefit. Likewise, Allah Almighty speaks about the wives of profit, loss and profit, no. And he says follow me when he is.

00:25:59--> 00:26:10

Being in the household of prophethood did not benefit either of them. They died this disbelievers and they will be in the fire. Then you ask yourself, and I asked myself, have we taken from upon?

00:26:11--> 00:26:26

Has it benefited us? We entered the month of Ramadan carrying sins and shortcomings and bad habits have we left Ramadan with the same sense? Same shortcomings in the same habits? This cannot be my brothers and sisters.

00:26:29--> 00:26:30

That is understandable

00:26:32--> 00:26:38

that we cannot keep the entire exact same momentum, which we had in Ramadan all throughout the year. That's difficult.

00:26:39--> 00:26:56

We know Realistically speaking of Ramadan brought with it an era of ease and differently environment. The gates of Jenga were opened up. The Devils were chained up, and the worship of Allah is sweet and easy in this month.

00:26:57--> 00:27:26

However, there must be a total cessation to your acts of worship after Ramadan you will not be able to maintain the exact amount all throughout the year. But you must have been terminated. You must have polemic from hero to zero there must be a continuation even if it is in a small amount because these are the deeds that are most beloved to Allah. The continuous ones even if they are little. If the season over Ramadan has ended,

00:27:27--> 00:27:34

the season of Salah Then there is another season that comes not once a year but five times a day

00:27:36--> 00:27:54

which was c'est la vie Islamism and Tanaka Salah there is no portion of Islam. For he who leaves Allah. It comes five times a day not just in Ramadan, my beloved. If the season of Ramadan, the season of the Malays pray at night has departed.

00:27:55--> 00:27:59

The light is still around, it comes every night. Or who

00:28:00--> 00:28:03

Allah ha Hello fatten lemon arada

00:28:05--> 00:28:45

Raja Shakira Allah said I have made the lights and the day come in succession one after the other for he who wants to remember me or he who wants to show gratitude when it stood around when it back to box Allah to lay the greatest prayer that you can pray after the obligation prayers is the night prayer. If the month of Quran has gone, the month of Sadako has gone. The month of fasting has gone. These are seasons that still exist every day of the year. Do you only fast in Ramadan? My brother? Do you only give sadaqa in Ramadan? My brother? Do you only pray at night in Ramadan? My brother, I will close

00:28:47--> 00:28:48

by narrating and

00:28:49--> 00:28:51

Abdullah says

00:28:53--> 00:29:04

he had a slave woman and he sold her once to a particular family. And when the middle of the night came in before God, she said to them aside.

00:29:05--> 00:29:09

Time to pray time to pray. They woke up and they said

00:29:10--> 00:29:16

Is it time for Fiji already? She said to them that can lead to some loner in tuba.

00:29:17--> 00:29:27
