Know that there is a direct connection between the intake of food

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

and the state of our man.

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

We might think that that's something physical Eman is spiritual, different, not no connection. No.

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

Allah didn't prescribe this month of fasting

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

for our stomachs

00:00:32 --> 00:00:37

is prescribed it for our Eman for our soul for hearts.

00:00:43 --> 00:00:50

And if we're not able to do this, then a key element of Ramadan remains missing for us.

00:00:52 --> 00:00:55

That key element is hunger.

00:00:58 --> 00:00:59

hunger.

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

We're not experiencing it.

00:01:04 --> 00:01:09

The Avatar is four course five course meal

00:01:10 --> 00:01:11

banquet.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:17

And afterwards, we still keep eating after taraweeh

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

and then two or three course meal for savour.

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

No hunger.

00:01:28 --> 00:01:29

But this is what

00:01:30 --> 00:01:36

Allah wanted us to experience hunger in Ramadan

00:01:38 --> 00:01:43

hunger so that we could experience what

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

half of the world is experiencing.

00:01:48 --> 00:01:50

We can share in their experience

00:01:52 --> 00:01:54

that we can better appreciate

00:01:56 --> 00:01:58

the trials that they're going through

00:01:59 --> 00:02:05

and that would then cause us to be more charitable.
