We will transition for the sake of preparation of Ramadan to learn a little bit about the importance and the benefits of this month.
So we won't cover one of the names of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for today. Inshallah Tada we will resume that either the next week or the week after Shabbat.
Allah Subhana Allah to Atlanta
highlights the importance of this month in verse number 185 of Solatube Bacara where he says shall who am Oban and leather you and Xena fie Hilco Mudan The nurse will be in 30 minute Houda word for con Allah subhanho wa Taala lets us know that the month of Ramadan is the month that the Quran was revealed shall Ramadan and let the one Zilla fee Hill Quran and it was revealed and came down through Angel Jibreel to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he and we know very well the verses that were first revealed. It put up this neon beacon Lady hudec credible
Insane I mean I love it. Who can come I love the I love Bill column I live in in Santa Ana neon. We don't start to reciting the Quran with these verses even though they were the first verses to be revealed. And so we see that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says in the area that we first quoted that this Quran was revealed throughout the month of Ramadan Moodle leanness as a guidance not for the believers as a guidance for every single human being
what they you know, to me know who that will Farrakhan and it is also a guide to show us what is right and what is wrong, what is true and what is false, so that we stay in between and we do what is right according to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we don't go towards what is wrong
now is the month of Ramadan is the month of the Quran
and the month where it was revealed and a month where the prophet saw love it he was sent number cited it very often. Then now a week before Ramadan begins, I think is the latest time for us to start preparing for it like better sooner, rather than later. Right? Or better now, instead of never, and so starts with preparing yourself for this month of Ramadan to come. And one of the most important aspects of this month is for us to find a connection with the Quran. Find the connection with the Quran, how many days how many weeks and maybe even how many months? Ask yourself has it been since you've last opened the Quran?
This is an honest question
that we all find ourselves stuck answering at certain points in time in our lives. We feel that everything is going good hamdulillah and we forget that in addition to the five daily prayers, in addition to the you know, principles of the deen that we have implemented in our lives, it's important for us to also open the Quran and recite from it.
And so begin from today. Take the Quran off that shelf,
blow the dust off of it, open it up
and prepare plan think where am I going to start? What am I going to recite this month of Ramadan? What are my goals and how much of it might want to recite but also how much of it am I going to try to understand Hamdulillah this year in sha Allah throughout the month of Ramadan we'll be back in person in the masjid and once again we will resume our 30 in 30 which is covering certain as of urges every single day wear a suit Bata every single day for the month of Ramadan from the beginning till the end and this will take place right here one hour before Salatin mother in one hour before is thought to encourage us to be in the masjid in the most beneficial time of the day when our
hunger is extremely high. When our patients is extremely low when we would be at home frustrated trying to find some sleep or get a little bit of peace and quiet so that our children are not running wild. We could be in the masjid learning a little bit of the Quran.
And so I encourage myself first this is one of the reasons why I love doing this program so that I can benefit from it and then share that with everyone else. Begin by planning your month of Ramadan from today. You should leave this clip by thinking to yourself Quran Quran Quran that is going to be my top three goals for this week to prepare for the month of Ramadan, set it straight. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us the Hadith Narrated by Abu Ghraib over the loggerhead
where he mentions that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said MyPhone ba was given five specific things during the month of Ramadan, that was not given to any other Ummah or any other nation. Previous.
And these five things the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam begins to say that the breath of the fasting person is more beloved to Allah subhanho wa taala, than the scent of the sweetest must be.
Now must true pure must, or misc, as we say in Arabic
is extremely expensive and actually very rare to find it comes from a deer from a pouch that is under the belly of a deer that is found in some northern countries like in Canada and also some European countries, but it's actually illegal to now possess or to take because those animals are going extinct.
Now look at this, how ALLAH SubhanA wa winter Allah has placed something so beautiful, a scent that comes from an animal that is so pure, so sweet, so nice. Yet it is hard for us to get and you and I we think to ourselves, I want this, I'm going to find a way, right people who love perfume who love it, and who love roads and stuff like that they say I'm going to find it and I'm going to find a way to get it. But Allah subhanho wa Taala loves the scent of the fasting person's breath more than the scent of that musk.
And is not only the musk of this dunya but the musk of the Akira that we strive for, that we want to attain and achieve in paradise to have the beautiful scents and the beautiful smells of Paradise. Allah subhana wa Taala loves the scent of the breath of the fasting person because of their submission. Now we think of it as you that's kind of gross. How can someone like the scent of a fasting person? You and I we think that because we are the someone? Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is not like you and I our submission to Allah in fasting our worship and devotion to Him through the fasting is what Allah subhana wa Tada admires. He knows that we ourselves don't like the scent of
our own breath. Last year Ramadan wearing masks, did anyone enjoy it? No. No one enjoyed it. We enjoyed wearing the mask knowing we can't smell the breath of other people. But it didn't help us. But look at ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada showing us it's not about the scent of your breath. It's about the sacrifice and the strain and the hardship and what drains you from your submission to Allah subhana wardown
so that's the first thing that was given to us that no other nation received prior to Muhammad Sallallahu ala eurosender. In addition to this, my brothers and sisters, the second thing the prophets Allah I think it was seven dimensions is that the angels asked for forgiveness.
Until the time that you break your fast,
the angels seek your forgiveness, they make dua to Allah to Allah subhanho wa and to add for our forgiveness while we're fasting, until the time that we break our fast. Now think of this, you know, when you're going through some hardship in life, and you reach out to someone who's pious, because you're making dua for what you want in your life but you want someone who's pious was righteous to also ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for something that you're seeking. And you hear this all the time make dua for me make dua for this Make dua I'm trying to attain this and that and we go to someone who is pious and righteous and we ask, remember me and your dog when you ask Allah subhanho
wa Taala because maybe your due out will be answered in a local granted to me. That's the most pious people that we know that we turn to and ask the angels or even more pious, no angel disobeys Allah subhanho wa taala. But the most pious believer in Allah still disobeyed is in certain ways.
No angel fails to fulfill their command that has been given to them by ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, but we fail to fulfill it every single day. There are certain things that we miss out.
So should we want to do out of the angels, of course, and that in itself is a blessing that we've received as being those who follow the OMA or follow the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that our Dwejra are doing do out for us is being made by the angels for the duration of the day until we break our fasts. We ask Allah subhana wa Tada to bless us with more and more throughout the month of Ramadan. Buddha only had our social love for Sophia what in the world before.
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa ala article today what have been while the Sony was sending more LNB who carry him at 80 of total salatu Adama Tasneem a mother and my brothers and sisters. I'm going to go a little bit faster throughout this half of the second half of the scope but because of the painting of the walls, the clocks have been taken down and I didn't know that I've taken up enough time from your day already. The next three things to remember there are five things that are mentioned in the Hadith two of them we covered already. The next three things the Prophet SAW along where I think he was suddenly mentions is that Allah subhanho wa Taala beautifies paradise every
single day and he says, My righteous servants are about to be spared from suffering and harm and be will be sent to me. My righteous servants ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada saying that those who are fasting they're the righteous servants. They will be saved they will be spared from harm.
And from suffering, and the scholars mentioned that this is referring to, to harm and suffering in this world. Because when we submit to Allah, He grants his ease and comfort, even though it might look like someone is suffering. Now you take the example of people in other countries that are going through hardship. And when we look at them, we know that it's hard, we can tell that it's difficult. But a lot of the time when you speak to them, their hearts are at ease with a loss of handling time, they may not have running water in the taps that we have, they may not have heating in the middle of the winter, they may not have clothing, but at the same time, when they talk about their hardships,
they are thankful to Allah subhana wa Tada for the ability to believe for the ability to earn a greater, stronger, more beneficial paradise for them in the Hereafter, then the world that they're living through now. And that's the example that we take of this hadith, or this part of the Hadith, that the struggles that we go through in this dunya will not seem so difficult upon us even though someone might be going through a hardship. Allah subhana wa went to Allah removes that harm. And because of our patients through it, Allah blesses us with no harm and no difficulty in the hereafter when we attain paradise before thing the prophets Allah or even some of the mentions is that the
shale clean Shea have been not shaped been shaped been plural, not just one not IBLEES but all of the helpers of shaitan are locked up with chains as the prophets on a longer It was Sunday dimensions. So they cannot go out and misguide the believers and try to take them away from goodness. So the month of Ramadan, we have the ability to do extra Riba and usually we say to ourselves, how come during Ramadan I can do so much? How come I could pray so long at night? How come I'm able to fast every single day? How come I'm able to give some other funds account and it doesn't diminish my wealth, my time my energy I feel better after Ramadan. But then when I'm all
done ends and we try to do the same armor or the same actions we tell ourselves you know it is hard is difficult. I can't do it. Because the shayateen are now let loose and it becomes more difficult for us after the month of Ramadan so benefit and maximize from that month. And the last thing my brothers and sisters is that Allah Subhana Allah Allah forgives the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the last day of Ramadan, Allah Akbar.
On the last day of Ramadan,
how many of us are 27
Night followers, as in we worship Allah every single night standing in the fasting throughout the day 27th night comes around is finished. Everyone says come to the masjid for drop come to the masjid for do Allah come to the masjid for two hours and they come to the masjid for two hours and let loose and jump jumps. Right. They get their sweets that are hungry Allah we made to our Allah's blessing us with his beautiful sweet art where I was accepted.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that Allah subhana wa Tada for users on the last day of Ramadan.
The last night specifically he mentions in this a habit of the lover at home asked him, they asked the Prophet sallallahu I do some of the other sort of law are you referring to Leila to further and he says no. For the forgiveness and the deeds of the actions of the believers throughout the month of Ramadan are rewarded to them on the last night.
So Allah is checking to see which one of us is going to slow down in the last 10 days, or slow down in the middle 10 days, or give up on the 27th or give up when the Quran is finished. And we say Alhamdulillah now let's read preparations. No, no, no, no, no. Read preparations is when the moon is seen. And he does the next morning or a little bit of time, half an hour an hour every day for you know a few days throughout the month to prepare for AIDS. And then you don't waste your time in the last 10 nights of Ramadan preparing for AIDS. So my brothers and sisters, that's benefit and maximize from this month of Ramadan and try to see every single one of us here, especially on the
last night of the month of Ramadan to ask and beg from ALLAH SubhanA wa to add individually. Don't wait for a community effort that everyone's going to come and make dua you don't need that what you need is yourself submitting to Allah. What you need is your connection to Allah subhana wa Tada what Allah wants to see is you crying and begging and asking from your heart what you want, not what the Imam thinks you want, what you feel you need from a Muslim cannonball attack. And so my brothers and sisters take advantage of this month of Ramadan along Masada Mohamed Laila Ali Mohammed
