Prophet Muhammad wa sallam was known to be charitable, generous, whatever he had he gave it but in Ramadan he was known to be even more generous.

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

He was known to be even more generous.

00:00:20--> 00:00:24

Where is our generosity? There is no motivation.

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

The collections made at the masjid.

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

Not much different from

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

collections outside of Ramadan

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

collections for the masjid for the place that we are praying.

00:00:41--> 00:00:44

Why generosity hasn't been stirred.

00:00:45--> 00:01:00

Hunger hasn't been felt. So it's just the routine Okay, we have some money. When I was a Christian as to go to the church we had a my parents used to give us some coins you give put this in the plate, we're doing the same thing. Just the ritual.

00:01:05--> 00:01:10

Let us renew our intentions today for the next week

00:01:11--> 00:01:13

to the end of Ramadan

00:01:14--> 00:01:21

to turn this fast around and make it truly a fast for a loss of what Allah

00:01:24--> 00:01:34

let us experience the fast. The real fast for a lot of sick one in which hunger pangs hit us.

00:01:37--> 00:01:44

hunger pangs which we rarely experience hit us every day. And remind us

00:01:45--> 00:01:49

to be grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for what he has given us

00:01:53--> 00:02:00

and to be concerned about the rest of humanity who don't have what has been given to us
