allows for season we continue with our preparation for the month of Ramadan. And I quote again, the same verse that I quoted last week, Shahada Ramadan, Larry Windsor Luffy
hotel Ignacio begginer team in alhuda, al Furqan, until the end of the of the verse
I don't know if it's a conspiracy against me that the microphone is only turned very low on a Friday.
Because the other morning, it was very loud for fudger. And also national light last we found the right balance, but I can feel really down I'm going to be out of breath. And my throat is going to be completely dry by the time I'm finished with today's football. So I have to now conclude that maybe my time is over at this merging, maybe people are giving me a sign that you know, one of these days of Michael Gove completely and then you will then you know that you have the sign that you know you've reached the end of your days.
Hopefully now inshallah i think is coming up or somebody at least setting it up, hopefully inshallah.
Otherwise, I'd like to scream over them. I'll have to take the mic off and then scream at you. And this is this is an international Muslim problem.
We ever you go we ever I spoken all over the world is always a problem with the mic. Oh, is a problem with the mic. And number two, it's always a problem with pocking. Muslims cannot talk. And Muslims can add the best systems installed in the best magic in the best areas. Whether it's in Qatar Airways in Malaysia, whether it's in Egypt, wherever it is, is always even in Makkah up to now. Something always sometimes went wrong with a microphone even in the harem. So, you know, we need to get our story right as far as these things are concerned. I mean, we can't even get the microphone right. In what about our Dean, when are we going to get to the sirata Mr. Cream as far as
the dean is concerned.
So we are hamdulillah past from that hiccup. We are on the cusp, on the threshold of the greatest and most significant and most beneficial month that allows for handleless chosen for this oma from all the months that allows personalized created. And needless to say, all the ambia alima salatu salam and all the books that were sent to hold the MBA alumnus alum, all was revealed in the month of Ramadan. So half of Ibrahim, there's a hadith by Anna Cindy Malik. So half of Ibrahim, the books into a Silas Salaam and the other MBA will receive kutub. And of course, the Kitab of the whistling in the Koran at a la sala revealed Muhammad Salam on the 27th of
of Ramadan, not on the 15th of Shabbat.
Let us look, a
just a quick glance at the history of fasting. We've done this before, but just within the context of the verses which I'm going to quote, which is verse and the only three verses in the Quran that deal with fasting, only three verses. In fact, only two verses the middle one. The most important one doesn't deal with fasting as such it deals more with the revelation of the Quran. But the first verse as we all know deals with the history of fasting. So first the history of fasting that Allah tells us about Shahar Ramadan about us about we then allows for talks about the relationship that we have with Allah. The third verse deals with our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala and our
relationship with Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam these are very significant vessel 183 184 73 184 185 186
so remember the first quotevalet camassia Kama katiba Allah Allah de la publikum La La Quinta takuan These were the historical background to fasting What does it tell us? allows father says yeah, you're Latina man. Oh, you people who have faith. Oh, you people who believe Oh Muslims, Omar Mohamed Salah, Salah. What does Allah say to us? quotevalet camassia forthing has been prescribed for you. It has been written for you. It has been a law made for you. Karma katiba Allah Levine among publikum
exactly the same as it was prescribed to those before you know different
when fasting started what Allah say, the exact number of days and the exact month and the rules were somewhat different, but it was prescribed for those who are those who came before you,
from Adam and those who came immediately before you whether, the B'nai Israel, the Christians, and the Jews
landed a contract upon Allah, Allah says, so that you may develop the consciousness of the presence of ally in your lives. So you may develop taqwa means to be conscious, not have a lot of the Presence of Allah, because we are all conscious of our laws.
But in Ramadan, we will develop the fact that Allah is with me, Allah sees me Allah looks at me, I'll appreciate me. Allah smiles with me or ever you under think of Allah, Allah and Allah, I ended up the donlevy Allah says, I am what by seven things I am. I am what my seven things. So Allah Subhana has given us this physical means to a spiritual end. The means is physical, staying away from food and water is a physical exercise. But the at the end of this exercise is to gain the taqwa of Allah, meaning the presence of allows for higher motala in our lives.
Then Allah, Allah says,
a year mama do that.
Was Allah talking to what is Allah telling us about Allah telling us about the fast which was imposed obligated on those before the sama?
Allah says a Yama ma do that.
It was a certain number of days and Madhu that is the
is jam. Oh Kayla. It is in Arabic refers to the plural but the plural which is the lesser plural between the walk between numbers one and nine. So the number of days that was placed upon the bernisa either were they add also too fast between one and nine days, let's say nine days. And initially, the Omar Omar was also obligated to fast the same number of days a year mama do that.
And was a holiday into a mama do that for mankind? I mean
this is also for the ministry. This was before Ramadan, Allah says womankind I mean Kumari, Allah suffer, in fact that to be a Amina, for
those of you who are ill on a journey
you should make up the days later. So you're allowed into bernisa at the beginning of Islam, if somebody couldn't fast Oh, no, if he was a lawyer was traveling he could make up the days further. What Alan Levine at Punahou. Then Allah, Allah says, For the bunnies started in the early Muslims, and those of you who
find it difficult to fast, those of you find that difficult.
Well as a native foreigner, senior to scheme,
you can give a failure by feeding one poor person every day.
So though there was an obligation on the peninsula in the early Muslims, if they could afford to pay their way out of it, they could pay their way out of it.
Well, Avenida de poner Allah Allah says, if you have the money and you can't be on a force, it's fine, you know, give me the purpose.
then allow, that is the first that is that is the nine days that Muslims and Jews and Christians are set up to the time and allows Rihanna reveal the verse, Shahada Ramadan.
Now Allah speaks to allow
anyone to remember
this verse 183, of surah. Baqarah refers to who? The bunnies, right? Jews and Christians.
So when were they excluded? How can they relate excluded from Ramadan? How did they become excluded? Why does Ramadan not apply to them as well? Because they excluded themselves and why did they exclude themselves because they said we cannot follow Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam because Mohammed Salam is not
as he's not a member of the of the Jews. He's not a member of Bernice al is an Arab and allows him to lie in the first
verses of surah to nakara.
Give you the old charge seat is a sheet a charge sheet
All the crimes of the B'nai Israel committed. Law songs are laid out, this is what they did. That's what they did. Then they asked for a car to be slow to the name they did this and then they did that. And every time these to question the prophets about this and about that, and at the end of the chargesheet allows Muhammad Allah tells talks to them about Ibrahim and is married and is Hakan and yaku.
And allows Juana tells us that Jacobo when he was dying, he had 12 sons, as you know, eventually became the 12 tribes of Israel. The other name of Dr. COVID is Israel. And Allah say Dr. cuckold is 12,000 said, Mata Abu Nam inbody. Who will you worship after me and they said, We will worship
ilaha illa. They will worship your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers it was it was the forefather of Nambiar code. Now, he now the smile of his heart.
Of course, the Jews and the Christians say that
the one that was sacrificed was not a smile, but was, but was but but was his heart. And of course, the Bible, of course, attests to the fact that who has sacrificed his only son.
The Bible says that Allah that God commanded Abraham to slaughter his only son, and who was an only son could not have been.
Who was the only one, the only son can ever be the youngest son, isn't it? So if there's a young son a must be another son.
So if our last one that's his only son, it could never refer to the youngest son.
Because he was a younger son, he must be another son. So in Allah, Allah says in the Bible, that Allah commanded Ibrahim to slaughter
is my ideal. It was the youngest son, not the only son. It was the youngest and is married. And that is where the nadie salatu salam comes from.
And also at the end of the chargesheet that Allah gave about the bunnies eel. Eventually we know what happened that initially like the fasting was given to the peninsula in
the capital of Islam was also given to Bani Israel, the Qibla was also given to Bernice right. And what was that Jerusalem? The cabler, right up to 13 years in Makkah, was the Qibla Jerusalem
and a few months in May in Medina with the Qibla was Jerusalem. And then what happened allows on the change the people and when the Qibla changed, remember what the Jews did you not have us Obama says Allah, we can't follow you. You're not the Prophet that is prophesied in the Torah, because you're actually a Jew, and you're not a Jew.
But look what happens when all that changes.
I mean, if you if you pray anyway, and I'm sure a lot of you have prayed every way in airports and on your car, somewhere on the road, people who come past non Muslims have come path. Jews or Christians wherever they may be, they're not interested in which direction you pray. Then ask yourself why are you standing in their direction? Why wife? Why are you standing behind your car in front of your car? Why do you stand next to the tree or whatever? They didn't ask you that because they're not interested in that. But listen, what the what the juicers in Medina when Allah changes the paper.
They say Matt ma Allah whom an Qibla t melotti, COO, COO, coo talay karnali.
Allah they say, Allah timeless, as they say, they say to the Muslims, why you change the Qibla? You first on another table? You first followed your resume, why do you change a pillar? Why do you take this interest? Why did they suddenly take this interest? They denied Mohammed as a prophet, they denied Islam is the Dean bonala change the Qibla from Jerusalem to Makkah, suddenly, then I became interested, suddenly now they wanted to know, but you Muslims used to pray to Jerusalem, why not you praying to?
Allah Subhana. Allah is trying to say to them, in other words, they recognized the Muslims as having had the Qibla of Jerusalem.
They recognize it, they had this in common. So why did they have this reaction?
Because they realize a loss of $100 was sending the Bernie's message. And the message was that they were the chosen people of Allah.
The B'nai Israel, the Jews were the chosen people of allowance for hautala and Jerusalem was the capital of the Muslims before the coming of Mohammed Salah lism.
Abraham was a Muslim, that his heart was a Muslim of his mind was a Muslim who was a Muslim.
So now Allah says, I'm not only changing the Tabler, I'm changing the Qibla to the new capital of Islam
and the new capital of Islam is getting to
the old Capitol was Jerusalem, upgrading a new capital for Islam.
And I am
choosing Islam as the new vehicle or the new nation Muslims as the new nation and Islam is the new face of this new capital.
So maca will be the eternal capital of Islam and Muslims, no matter what, no matter what political changes
or whatever we may think whatever may be going on there that is the capital of Islam
and that capital capital was created with a loss of a hammer to the VA.
So when we look at the second verse of fasting what is almost a shadow Ramadan, and levy on Zilla
allows pongola says that all Muslims I've chosen for you maka as you do capital
and I'm giving you 30 days to celebrate the institution of this new capital
which is called NACA.
And that's when Allah Allah tells us speaks to us. The oma Mohammed about fasting Allah doesn't refer to fasting.
Previously Our Allah refer to fasting.
Yo Latina Manu Coulibaly camassia mahkamah gudivada La Nina me publico La La Quinta Taku allows Allah uses a physical means for a spiritual objective. What is the physical means fasting? And what is your objective
to become conscious of the Presence of Allah subhanho wa Taala
and how do we do this for nine days was given now allows Rhonda has given us 30 days to do this. And what is this training How does this training work?
How does this training workforce
from the physical to the spiritual from the stomach to the heart
then Ramadan we change our emphasis from the stomach from the eyes from the ears to the heart
center Ramadan somebody sent yo WhatsApp and it's a girl a stranger to you maybe to end or a marry or whatever it is and she sent you a nice message and you say
you have to wait 30 days before I answer this WhatsApp not in Ramadan
as part of your training
what fiber training is no
not enabled on your person that used to go to clubs and all these things and all the wrong things. You say no.
Travel have to wait for another month. I'm in training now. I'm strengthening my heart. It's all about becoming conscious of our laws.
So in our countries, you will see your your neighbor if it is at odds with Africa you work in a big company somebody sits next to you at the desk we sit with a bottle of water if Devin takes a sip of water you know and he says
you look at him and you dry mouth you know and you say no and he says come on man you say no no no no.
And so you walk in the street in Ramadan you in town wherever it is. You see a beautiful girl with a short skirt with though and you and you say no to Ramadan
don't say I'm gonna wait 30 days to do this Ramadan. This part of my training
and training is of such a nature that if you don't pass the training
you can't get the job.
If you don't pass the training, you can't get your certificate at the end of Ramadan.
So this is how we use
and the annual eyes I mean you don't have to switch to the TV I mean all that stuff that you see there you know cleanse your eyes from all the things in the month of Ramadan don't go in or to go post to go train hard strengthen the art because what awaits me after Ramadan to a whole nother another 11 months of facade we live in a non Muslim state. We live in Nazca we know you know what I'm talking about.
There the Ramadan is that month where you can strengthen yourself and I guarantee you that you strengthen your heart you strengthen your soul. you strengthen your nafs you stand up and become a happier person. Why? Because I'm less happy with you. Why are we so depressed? People go to psychologists. People go to all kinds of people because they dependents My wife is depressed. Even children become depressed.
My five year old grandchild the other day said to me I'm
Mommy stresses me. See what you find is stressful.
Then I said, you know, why are you stressed because you said too much with a tablet. That's why you stressed. You spent too many hours sitting with a tablet that's not your mommy that's stressing you as you are stretching yourself, until we become stressed when we sit too much in front of the television. Why? Because you see on TV, all the Unreal things, things that you could never have things that if you no matter how long you live, you're able to have it because it's a it's a it's not the real world. It's not reality. It's all make believe. And we put ourselves into that make believe world and we come out of that make believe world. And we come out of that and we think now
where's the money and where's that card is that doesn't happen. So Ramadan is this month of, of spiritual training. And eventually, we will develop the Presence of Allah was pioneer who without
coming back to the the birth of of Shahada Ramadan Allah The
law says, so the month of Ramadan
not in which fasting was prescribed analysis to us.
We going a bit further than fasting now for your own Muslims. This is the month in which revealed the Torah is number one. Then allows Rama tells us what about the virtues of this Quran.
Allah says who deadliness
guidance for mankind, young man came to speak to me the other day
to tell me about some organization that he wants to launch. And
research so young daughters University is such a young lady. I'm just kidding. So he says to me, that one of the amazing things about Islam is, or one of the amazing things that we should be as Muslims is that
we should not use the word society. It's a long discussion, I will give you just the gist of what he said. He said we should not use the word society because if you say that you you you're doing something for society or you're working for society, or you're working for the betterment of society. Immediately when you use the word society, you're dividing your humankind because society means social strata, social divisions, black, white, rich, poor. Society consists of that.
He says we should talk in terms of humanity, that Muslims were sent to humanity.
For our sin wouldn't leave the Muslim even know. The Quran was not seen as a guidance for the Muslims allows Allah says, orderliness houden leanness as a guidance for humanity. And so, when we structured organization, he says, For the New World, then we need to structure an organization talks about humanity, and all inclusive humanity, which includes every single person, not religion, not status, not color, but not a lot of thought and allows one talks about Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in what way Allah says, He will send the raw metal not even to mankind, Allah says, You are Mohammed is a merciful all of the universe.
for all of the whatever is there in the universe,
I have sent you as a mercy for the whole of you know, as my mercy is through you to the whole of the universe. And sometimes we miss understand the personality of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
And we sometimes equated Mohammed with allows for Karnataka to shift.
But sometimes because we do not understand Islam properly, we cannot distinguish between
our relationship with Allah and our relationship with Mohammed. These are two entirely different relationships. And in the last verse, Allah talks about this relationship Allah says, What is their sound like? I barely identify in a curry. Allah says
the Sahaba used to come to the farm and say Rasul Allah, Allah.
Allahu Akbar aimed for Luna de I'm Carrie Panaji.
And this is a messenger of Allah is Allah faraway. So making my shouts for him two years should we raise our voices when we want to speak to allows for hermit Allah? Because maybe Allah is far away from us.
Oh, no, no Gee, well, can we whisper
whisper, softly whisper and Allah will Yes. Half Price Allah away from us.
Two things the Prophet could have done. You could have said something out of himself. You could have said the word he asked via me, I'll speak to
you gonna send it I said, I'm the closer to Allah and all of you. So ask me and I will ask Allah Don't worry.
He kept quiet and waited for revelation, what is the revelation? revelation came and said?
Where is our Salah Chi Ba da,
O Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
if my servants come to you to ask you, about me,
which they did
for India, Karim.
Allah doesn't say, oh Mohammed Hassan, tell them this is the answer. Allah doesn't say Pula, whom Allah says kulu Allah had
when Allah talks about himself, and he wanted to tell the NaVi to say to the oma is to say, say this, pull out the bear urbanites say.
He's the lord of man, pull out of the follow up. Your leisure, the word say, Allah says, is a solitary body. And
if they ask you about me, not tell them, I'm near to them, I'm near to them. I'm near to them. In other words, you are not included in this relationship of Mohamed Salah my relationship with my creation is a direct relationship that I have with him.
My relationship with NASA, with with with the Muslims, is a direct relationship doesn't include you. When my servants call upon me, they call upon me.
Gee Buddha, what a die Eva da, Allah says, I will answer their prayers when they call upon me and if they call upon me,
finally, as a bully, but they must know their reciprocal responsibility, and the reciprocal duty to also hearken to my call, first as a bully, when you want me to be and they have another responsibility to me, that they must believe in me.
So too, we have two sides to our relationship with the last one is
that we must call upon who
allows the Dhamma to his
Eman Bella, who is believe in allowance?
And what is our relationship with Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam our relationship with Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam ease that allows Allah gave him the revelation and Allah commanded us to follow him
in whatever he commanded us to do.
That is our relationship with Allah. there that we follow his Sunnah. And the revelation that allows partner given to you. So a friend of mine was in Medina about two weeks ago, he sent me a message. And he said, I'm here by the prophets of Allah. So Allah Tell me Can I ask via the property was very least yet he's got cancer and he went, and he said, Can I ask what this little book I'm reading here? This book says that
then I be will be very close with me if I don't ask via him. ask Allah for my health.
So I say to him,
that our relationship with Allah is that Allah is the one that we asked.
There is our relationship.
Our relationship with Mohammed Salah means is not Allah.
We follow his son
and his son now was that he himself only asked alone.
So we follow that sooner, Mohammed sallu alayhi salatu salam. And this distinction mario brothers and sisters have to be absolutely clear, because if we close those that relationship didn't recommitting share.
And I don't mind if you say he only talks about shape, you can tell the world that
you can also tell the world I'd like to speak about beta. And you can tell the world that you say it this way would and if at all it is this way, but then let them be because my Prophet used the word share and he used the word beta. So I use it. Following him I use it, to follow the tune of Mohammed Salam is to call a beta beta. That's a sadhana
to say schilke when he gets another Turner.
Don't talk to me about middle Islam, and this kind of Islam and your Islam. And this Islam No, not the only one Islam.
The Islam we our relationship with our lives.
One of our
Rob and Ella enslave and my relationship with Mohammed Salah means that he is the one we should follow in everything which allows foreigners commanded us to follow him. If you had if you had the clarity now before Ramadan, your Ramadan will be a real Ramadan your Ramadan will be a successful ramadan ramadan will be a Ramadan built on tawheed Northern all kinds of vice versa that people preach nowadays.
So a long time to Shaolin Ramadan and lady on the left,
who deadliness guidance for all of humanity. So Allah has given us the responsibility of taking this guidance to the rest of humanity.
whereby he nodded and allows for Angela says that it is clear signs for guidance.
Our relationship with allies in the Quran our relationship with NaVi Salam is no Quran. Our relationship with a friend of mine is in the Quran, our Surat and Mr. Team is in the Quran. All these clear signs for guidance is to be found in the
anatomy and alhuda workflow
and in the Quranic clear signs for guidance houda
and protocol, our system has just named for calm
clear guidance what is Furqan clear guidance as to what is right and what is wrong? You want to know what is right and wrong.
look in the camera not like today What do people say today? People will come to me and say Yeah, but you know shift there are some people who say you can ask via the process of salah
and then you know when I say to them but allow them that says what he has done okay but they hadn't knew what they say. They say but you should respect other people's opinion.
People say this
i'm sure they've said it to you also. So they say yeah, you know, you can speak to the dead in the grave and you say yeah, but I didn't that's you know that sheer apathy are people who say that they Allah will say that
and they say but you must respect we are told you as you speak people's opinion, you know, difference of opinion must be respected. Allows panelists is what beginner terminologia was
wrong and right is not my prerogative I can declare this is right and this is wrong. This man's opinion is right. And that man's opinion is wrong. My opinion is right if it agrees with the Quran
and my opinion is wrong when it disagrees with a quad in the Bahamas awesome I can't just say oh this somebody some way loved in the 12th century you know will say this kind of thing and so yeah he's opinion must be respected
that's absolute nonsense that is a
totally nonsense out which means there's no right or wrong anymore. All opinions must be respected. Hola
whether inoty mina Luda Walter con
Simon child I mean como shahara Foley so
now allows for handler says
allows long now doesn't say like you say to the bunnies right? If you take on a journey
you can pay in the days
analysis if you find yourself present in the month of Ramadan. Your presence alone determines whether you should fast
so when you are present in the month of Ramadan
you must fast not nine days 30 days
womankind Mr. edano Allah suffering.
Find the two minute same rule applies if you stick on a journey you pay and
then our last formula say something strange Allah says you read the law of becoming a user of Allah you read Rasul, Allah changed the number of days from nine to city.
Now Allah says, Muslims, I just want to make it easy for you.
I don't make it difficult for you really increase the days from nine to 30 and you say that you want to make it easy for us vanilla.
And that's what I said last week. I said in reality it is exactly as ulisses because in reality, it's very difficult to find just one day outside of Milan if you miss some days in Ramadan of last year, or difficulties VG painters days I'll
tell you, but Ramadan 30 days
no problem. Whether you pass 18 hours, eight hours, 20 hours, people
Fast 20 hours a day in the north in London and Sweden and Norway. I haven't met a single Muslim they complain, they complain This is long hours, yes, but they fast because Allah guarantees for us. Allah says, Don't worry.
It may look ethical but I am going to make it easy for you.
What does this mean is this easiness is not just about Ramadan this evening This is about the whole of Islam. All of Islam is easy, we make it difficult.
We make Islam very difficult with all of our other practice we make it extremely difficult and expensive also.
If you just spend on that which Allah has commanded us to spend
if we just do what we were asked to do by Allah and His Messenger nothing will be difficult. So the added
the add ons is a
better way to you know, it starts off with the bride and the bride groom and an engineer overdraft
that's related to the poor father poor father's say. So I'm still paying off the weddings of five years ago.
So allowed to handle it then
makes us far as a training ground.
And we should look forward to this challenge
from Amanda Sullivan challenge
it says challenge of the whole body no other a body challenges the body in such a way that the Ramadan challenges the body challenges your ears, your eyes, your mouth.
Look after the words that you say no matter if you're a man who loses your temper in the month of Ramadan you should make me and now our last round Allah should
temper you down, you know turn you down a few notches that you already make an intention now.
Don't tell you why she'll take advantage.
But you yourself.
You tell yourself now renegotiate and remember, and that's that's also Allah makes it easy for us. Allah locks up shaytaan
avaliable 11 months away is difficult. Because you know, he whispers and he whispers and he whispers until you say okay,
And then you do it and nothing happens. Oh,
but Allah knows. So he does not Allah locks up. She makes it even easier for you to do what you have to do. Keep it simple. You know, and I've spoken a lot about Ramadan.
She has spoken so much in an hour. You know what I do your numbers? No, no, no, no, no. All you have to do is what you have to do. Like a five times salon every day.
Be good. Direct your eyes, your ears, nose. Don't speak ill about other people that don't speak about other people period.
Because you started by saying something good and ended by saying something bad. So my philosophy is don't don't start at all in speaking or mentioning other people in your conversations. Don't do it. Why not? Because they think all the words if
you say something about something in Ramadan, he says if you if you said one thing about him he is
given 100 things about.
So imagine you speak about three people in the month of Ramadan. Three times seven is 2100 of your good deeds is God
just by mentioning three names of other people in a conversation.
Now if you can only do that in the month of Ramadan Baraka, intergender, fidget fast, pray five times a day
and just not think about others. If you can set that goal for you. You don't have to do anything else. I'm not saying you should not do anything No, don't say no, you should have a simple date No kidding with Robin him next to me and no Nick
will leave you that is if that is a goal you set yourself and if you can reach a goal, or you say to yourself, I'm not going to look at a strange woman in the month of Ramadan
except by mistake
to go you could set yourself and it's a golden in this kind of difficult. It's difficult.
But imagine you can actually do that in the month of Ramadan are pleased Allah will be with him. And now you will be trained after Ramadan
because we all look only when you train yourself that you contain yourself not to do it allows families displeased with this simple that is so don't go for the big things. Don't go for the Imams read my Quran but until you finish your Quran in the morning go to work. Then all the facade begins what's the point? You read the Quran at night in the morning when you wake up and you go to work. Everything is gone. You don't set yourself up such Heidi Oh Nick hatanaka Kalani choose Pecha to
lose money make money
you don't speak to your wife You don't speak your children
read the Koran at your leisure. read the Quran when you have time do it every day but don't spend hours read other books as well things read the theater of Mohammed Salah read the hadith of Mohammed Salah become an all human being all person all Muslim that's important
now me and my wife and I have made near to go for Amara next week inshallah.
On Sunday, I will make to offer you inshallah
I don't know all your names but I'll make the offer the GMR to this merger
please make the offer me I hope to come back inshallah I don't know if I will, but I hope to come back.
But you know, I've made this near to go. So, I looked at myself in the mirror and I said to myself, no, what kind of preparation do I need?
How do I somewhat in my humaneness guarantee that if I go there and as you spend money, you go to a place x 45 degrees so your house also may be get impacted.
So you go and you know you go with this
with Allah must forgive me and allow me to do this for me and Allah must do that for me. How do I prepare for this journey?
What do I do?
I ticked off
that I believe one cannot leave the shores of this country to go for hydrometer unless you've ticked of this first box
and the first box you need to tick off is the box of Dhaka
because remember, this journey is genuine money and he's standing to spend money to go to pocket money.
spending it in the way of our laws.
If you don't have the money is not a compulsory thing to do. not compulsory for you to go from Moscow for hedges between Amara as a more great as its greatest sense of responsibility on the Muslim to prepare himself absolutely perfectly as far as money is concerned.
Maybe our Eman is just about the money part is extremely important.
Now many of us pay out the car in the month of Ramadan
I pay myself in the month of Ramadan first of Ramadan that's fine. That's my my financial year end. And when Saul says that you're financially in debt is your financial year in SAS wants to know on that day, how much money you have, how big your business is, what your stock is, how much money you have collected in this and that on behalf of SARS whether they call it sales tax
the sales tax
and build if you don't pay dove into SAS
so now we have a situation where allows the harmattan is placed as on as the responsibility
and allows harmonise Joe, nice to us and so good too. As he says, you set your end date you set your date, you set your 12 month period every year.
Mine is say that first of Ramadan. You may say that haram you may say that in November, December, whatever it may be, but let's assume that my date is in Ramadan and I've been makin Ramadan I'm going I'm traveling.
What is my responsibility to our last name or the acceptance of Alma depends on this if I don't do this, on the rise Bothell
Barfield, Bothell bath, you may say, Well, he didn't hear me properly.
Because if you, your sockeyes, do on the first of Ramadan, and you in Makkah and the first of Ramadan, and you have not made provision for the payment of your car that Amara is gone.
And we say Why?
Because your first responsibility to Allah subhanaw taala is to pay off the car. So if you're not going to be here, you should take out your car now. Leave it here or give it out to
distribute it distributed before you leave. If you can't distribute it before you leave, you have to take it out of a bank account and put it somewhere else. You can't say well, I'm leaving it in my account. If I come back, I'm gonna pay and I said no, that's not good enough.
Why not? Because your money a lot of money must be separated from your money on the day.
You can't tell us I keep it in my bank account. So
when you ask for it, I'll give it to you
which never will happen obviously.
So what is your responsibility when your whole company when your annual financial accounts when end your money that that term has not be in your bank account.
Even if you're not going to give it all out on that particular day, you have to take it out, keep it in cash or keep it somewhere else. And you should say to your accountant, or to your daughter or your son or to your mother or your father or your wife buys a car is in the cupboard I've taken it out there it is and it happens to be I've already taken out allows foreigners do wipe as you take it out
because if you don't take it out, then
the HAC of Allah is mixed with your money
that which belongs to Allah you've kept with you doesn't mean your intention is not important.
You can't say well, it's not gonna be doing
I'll make it tonight off the shy I'm gonna make it of course I'm gonna make it. I'm going to make the word but no now can you do that? You can do that. You can say I've got the money. And now I must pay 1000 and have the cover up keeping it so long. You know tomorrow I'll give it to somebody or next day I'll give it to somebody or in a month's time I'll give it to somebody. I'll make an EFT transfer tomorrow morning to somebody No.
You can't do that with with saliva. You can't defer it at a time when it's convenient for you know,
save your money is mixed with almost half your money because bothy
if you steal money from somebody
and of course it works like this if you put that if you have money in the bank and you stole from somebody and the case is made against you and a claim is made against your money
where will they go for the money
in the bank different money you've got in the bank? You can't say that's my money
the law assumes that whatever money you have the same the money you stole is part of all that money
in some way part of that money
so when you don't give us half you keep it you taking money from who from our last pinata. So that is our solemn says people will go ahead and they will be tired and he will be burning down on them and I'll be standing in front of that. And they'll put up their hands and they will say lambay Allahu Allah be the bakerella shadie Kala Kala bacon Allah will say,
no lebap the man who came with his hair on the closure of on his forearm, the food you eat is how you are determined you are not interested.
You say but how is that? Because maybe the money that you have is mixed with money.
Maybe the money you came with is mixed with the car money. Remember, you can make Toba for the car.
You can say Well, I didn't pay the car you know in 1969 1970 or 1983 19 to the year 2000. So you know alum Please forgive me, you know?
no forgiveness. Because why? dates are not forgiven. If you owe me money, you can't make dua to Allah say I owe five 500 grand Allah Please forgive me. You must pay me
say mother loves pinata. So when you go home or go for Hajj, remember, it's very important that you should have paid all your debts. People say people always come to me and say, you know, oh, somebody money can I go for Hajj. They never asked me I love money. Can I go for it? Nobody's ever asked me that question. Jeff, you know, I haven't played soccer when I was you know, I was neglectful. They never they say you know oh my brother money can I give him from my you know, can I make a loan against my inheritance? You know, man heritance is still coming through. You know, I want to go for Hodgkin and make a loan for my inheritance, you know, to go for height, because you can make a loan
from a logical part.
But we are the people who say you know, I haven't played soccer, what must I do? You must sit down for 10 days and work hard, more or less what you owe Allah Subhana Allah and first way I was dead, and then he can seminar.
San Diego for Amara. You first pay on less debt, you first take out that money and then
you give it in the car or you keep it you give it to your
whoever you want to give it in as an Amana and say, if I don't come back, then this is the money you give it to the poor and the needles is a calf and whoever you want to give it, this is a very, very important message. Because you know, we go through life sometimes, and we're not aware of these very important
preparations that you need to have is like Santa, can you make?
salata Sharlto Voodoo, even if you have to have to do.
Similarly, we know you have to pay your debt, isn't it? Before you go for high drama, isn't it? You all know that? But why do we neglect the debt that we owe to our lives?
And that is part of our training. So remember, you go there.
First settle your debt with a loss
that's between you and a loss.
First, settle your debt with Allah, whatever you do. You know, people say sometimes there are people is a very good message. When they say janazah then somebody will stand up and say, my father said, if there's any person who owes him money, who Oh, he owes, he owes money to please would you speak to us? No. And tell us how much my father's I've never heard anybody say my father owed Allah 500 then for soccer with 1004 soccer and you we are going to pay on behalf of our father Oh, is there money behind too because we want to expose him but because we want to set an example then it's a good example. So next time when somebody dies when before somebody dies, your father his mother
first go to them and say
mommy I repeated the car My dad is coming because they have you paid with a car. Do you need any help? Can I work it out for you? Can I do something for you?
Because a lot harder says well levena yakhni soon as the Hubba wha wha wha la una fiesta de de la for Bashir when the other bit it allows Harmon says and those who don't pay this occur. Those who award the golden their silver they owe their money they don't pay for Bashir on the other banally Allah has given them the glad tidings give them stylings over of a very serious and vicious punishment from Allah was final. And sometimes my wife says to me, we shouldn't use such vicious words in the Juma you know when you speak to people I see when Allah uses these words Allah uses Jana What was I say? Some very warm plus.
And really, I mean I tell my wife You know, I'd love for myself I must love for the people who are around especially my mom has love for me Alterna for you. What do you like keep this to myself and I say this to myself and I find myself by saying all these things, but when I come to you I put you know speak very softly to you and say
