00:00:01--> 00:00:03

Why they come to live our cattle?

00:00:05--> 00:00:08

Well, it's been some days now since the EAD

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

and hamdulillah.

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

I'm still here in Hargeisa, Somaliland

00:00:19--> 00:00:25

and Mashallah, the weather is fine after some heavy rains, etc.

00:00:26--> 00:00:28

and fasting is over

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

according to Ramadan,

00:00:33--> 00:00:38

but is fasting just about Ramadan?

00:00:40--> 00:00:47

Is this month of fasting every year supposed to be shut down? And the

00:00:49--> 00:01:02

whole practice all the efforts, everything we have done in Ramadan supposed to be just put on the shelf until next Ramadan is that is that how it is supposed to be?

00:01:03--> 00:01:05

Or is Ramadan

00:01:06--> 00:01:15

a part of our lives? You know, Ramadan being the obligatory aspect aspects of fasting.

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

When we look at what Prophet Mohammed Salah Salam had to say

00:01:23--> 00:01:24

about

00:01:25--> 00:01:25

fasting

00:01:27--> 00:01:36

beyond Ramadan, we find there are so many different references and suggestions and and

00:01:37--> 00:02:02

efforts that he has proposed for us to do to make Ramadan and make fasting an integral part of our lives. And not just something for the month of Ramadan. That's the reality. So it is it does

00:02:03--> 00:02:12

behoove us to look into fasting beyond Ramadan, that Ramadan was really a preparation,

00:02:13--> 00:02:15

a preparation for

00:02:16--> 00:02:19

a way of life, which

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

includes fasting in all of its aspects.

00:02:26--> 00:02:33

So when we look into the guidance of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Regarding

00:02:35--> 00:02:45

fasting beyond Ramadan, we find the first statement he made was that of fasting six days of show all

00:02:46--> 00:02:53

six days either, you know, with gaps in between, or six days

00:02:55--> 00:03:06

following each other, however, we choose to do it. But six days of show out before the month of show while ends were encouraged to fast for six more days.

00:03:08--> 00:03:14

And these days of fasting, the prophet SAW seldom said

00:03:16--> 00:03:29

I did to the month of Ramadan gives us the reward of fasting the whole year fasting for a whole year. So Bahama law,

00:03:30--> 00:03:35

just six more days added to our Ramadan

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

gives us the reward this great reward of fasting

00:03:41--> 00:03:52

the whole year. So what is this saying? This is encouraging us in the most strongest of terms to fast regularly

00:03:53--> 00:03:58

to make fasting an integral part of our lives.

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

So, my brothers and sisters,

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

followers on Facebook,

00:04:09--> 00:04:15

let this month of Chahal not go by.

00:04:16--> 00:04:25

Don't let it go by without fasting. The six days as the prophet SAW some of them has recommended it.

00:04:27--> 00:04:28

And Sharla

00:04:29--> 00:04:36

make that effort and fast them as sincerely and as

00:04:37--> 00:04:47

focused as we were in Ramadan. Don't fight them as a tradition, habit.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

You know, a custom that's what people do. So we're doing it like them. No put everything

00:05:00--> 00:05:25

In it in these six days, try to put everything in it just as we had put in Ramadan, we were very, very careful about our Ramadan to make sure that that Ramadan was perfect. So it would bring us the rewards that were promised. In the same way. We should try to do the same thing for these six days of show

00:05:26--> 00:05:33

barakallahu li comb, and it is good to be here with you again. Still in Somaliland,

00:05:35--> 00:06:13

a place of peace, a land of Muslims Mashallah a place worth visiting. When you're making your plans for the coming year. You know where you would like to take a vacation, see another part of the world meet some of the oma, consider Somaliland, a place that I've been coming to for the last eight years. And in the course of these eight years here in Somaliland, I can say honestly, that I've only heard of two people who have been killed here. So behind Allah

00:06:14--> 00:06:33

Subhana Allah to people in eight years. I know once you heard the word Somali Somalia, Somaliland, you're thinking Shabaab explosions, you know, daily, etc. But Somaliland is a whole nother story.

00:06:35--> 00:06:47

So put it on your agenda. It's relatively cheap to visit here to live here is incredibly cheap. I mean, you can get a house

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

with walls around it.

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

Three bedrooms

00:06:54--> 00:07:06

for as little as $150 a month. I know some people contact me all the time asking me where can we make hatred? You know, where is livable work and Muslims gold?

00:07:07--> 00:07:15

Somalia Somaliland put that on your map, do some research, come and visit it and inshallah you will find

00:07:17--> 00:07:21

a land of Muslims 100% Muslim.

00:07:22--> 00:07:30

Father, we have three lines, sometimes four lines, people praying you know, throughout the day.

00:07:32--> 00:07:38

Hey job everywhere. You will not see a single woman in the street without a job not a single woman.

00:07:40--> 00:07:45

Of course the man's job needs some work. But Masha Allah,

00:07:47--> 00:07:51

Somaliland is a place to consider.

00:07:52--> 00:08:14

Seriously Baraka Luffy comme salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. And I'm closing now as the advance of the whore I sounding you can hear them in the background. Mashallah. And this is something beautiful too. No matter where you go in this city, you will always hear the other end.

00:08:16--> 00:08:20
