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

From the Rila assembly line,

00:00:06--> 00:00:06

Ronnie

00:00:08--> 00:00:15

and fusina Marina Mayor de la, la la, la la de la,

00:00:16--> 00:00:41

la la la la la la la sharika wanna shadow? Muhammad Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam he was having a woman died without what he lie about because our brothers and sisters in Islam are Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Allows Johann with Allah speaks to us in hola Quran Allah says,

00:00:42--> 00:01:11

Shahada Ramadan, a letting own Zilla feel for an orderliness Baba united Neruda or for con ferment Shahid amin comitia Americana Merida Allah suffer in fact, the two main aim when you read the law hobbico Musa wala you read the book of molosser Well, it took me right to kabiru la llamada con la la Koo touch Guru sakalava

00:01:13--> 00:01:22

and the verse I spoke about the last time we met was the verse after this where it says like I buy d&d when myself and asked about me that was last the last time we met.

00:01:28--> 00:01:38

For many, many years I've been reading these verses of the hola from rival Latina Amano. quotevalet kusa mo kamakoti Bala Latina, Minh, publikum la la quinta, taco

00:01:40--> 00:01:50

and then reverse the next verse, verse 184, that was 183 sorts of Baccarat. Now, one thing that worried me about death versus always one word,

00:01:53--> 00:02:34

I could never make out the meaning of that when all the Tafseer I ever read on it could never clarify for me what it meant. And now that's why I said to my wife the other day, I said, You know, I care I became older, too late in my life, the knowledge I have now, I should have had 20 years ago, I should have been old 20 years ago, with a knowledge of course, not just the age, but it just shows shows me and it shows all of us that you know, the seeking of knowledge is something which continues under the death care until you die. And you can never say I know, a Muslim or a person that never say, I know those two words can never come out of his mouth. I know. Could you really

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

never know until you really know.

00:02:38--> 00:03:04

And today inshallah I want to maybe shed some new light on what is the word that I was always concerned about? alswamitra CCIE Latina hamano quotevalet camassia fasting has been prescribed for you, as it was prescribed to those before you. La La Quinta taco. And what is the purpose of fasting allows for nurses? Perhaps you may develop taqwa Allah says, I placed clarifying for you as I prescribed it to those before you.

00:03:05--> 00:03:14

Maybe, Charla, the last one that says maybe you will develop taqwa. And I always wondered why Allah Subhana Allah says, perhaps you will develop

00:03:15--> 00:03:36

what is knowledge you say and you will develop taqwa. What is almost say that you first chances are you may develop chances are you may not develop taqwa. To me that wasn't very inspiring. But today I am going to give you the reasons why allows panda like said that. And also the second thing that bothered me about this first verse was

00:03:39--> 00:04:01

the next verse is a Yama model that a German model that for those of you know Arabic, or know what it means, this word Madhu, that is Jambo Killa it is a particular kind of plural in the Arabic language and different kinds of plurals in the Arabic language. This will only is called the plural where you refer to something which is less than 10.

00:04:02--> 00:04:05

So, anything less than 10 you will do you use this

00:04:07--> 00:04:10

type of plural that

00:04:12--> 00:04:17

a Yama model that model that means days less than 10

00:04:19--> 00:04:21

when we know Ramadan is not less than 10.

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

Ramadan is either 29 or 30.

00:04:26--> 00:04:36

So why does Allah say less than 10? Why does Allah say Farsi has been prescribed for you as it is prescribed before you and the next day next verses a yamamah do that less than 10 days

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

and many of the scholars of the seal

00:04:44--> 00:05:00

will just skip it, they will just ignore it because it doesn't fit into the understanding of CRM being of 30 days. But of course there is no such thing as coffee. There is no such thing in the Quran. It's all about understanding all of our accounts.

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

To know what it really means in the context of the quarter.

00:05:05--> 00:05:06

First of all,

00:05:07--> 00:05:39

there are a few things we need to know. And I want you to listen carefully those of you Mashallah our been graced with long attention spans today. And listening ability, my stomach is empty. So the brain should work better today, and is not so cool. So your brains are not frozen today. So you should read them and ask you quite a few questions today, especially the people sitting in front. I'm not going to point our fingers at anybody, but be prepared for some very tough questions today. All right, so the first thing we need to know is first thing very important

00:05:40--> 00:05:43

that Allah talks about Ramadan watching the whole Quran.

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

Do you know that allows one the speaker in the

00:05:49--> 00:05:54

other mode only once in the whole of the 114 chapters of the

00:05:55--> 00:05:59

only in the surah in verse 184, of Surah Baqarah.

00:06:01--> 00:06:13

There are other things also read aloud to me only mentioned once and you know when you mentioned something once it means that something is extremely important. Extremely Oliver for example says kulu Allahu Allahu

00:06:15--> 00:06:29

Allah refers to himself only once in the Quran is a HUD that he is one. Allah had what I had appeared many times in the Quran, but in reference to Allah that is the only time Allah says a hunt.

00:06:30--> 00:06:39

Which means that is very important, extremely important, that that is allowed for this. I'll use another another word that many words for example, the word

00:06:40--> 00:06:51

Arabic Allah, Allah Allah, Allah. Allah is also mentioned this once in the Quran, Allah says to the prophets of Salaam read in the name of your audio created

00:06:52--> 00:06:55

Khalid al insana mean Allah created man from Allah.

00:06:57--> 00:07:05

Lam cough three words, Allah says I created when from three letters sorry number three letters, and this word Allah only once in the whole Quran.

00:07:06--> 00:07:14

Why? Because very special word. If you look at the word Allah and you and you and we've done a lecture on this before,

00:07:16--> 00:07:20

that Allah in fact refers directly to DNA, it refers to the

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

what he call it, the helix

00:07:26--> 00:07:34

refers to the helix and helix is the very absolute foundation of every single human being and every single human beings DNA is different.

00:07:36--> 00:07:54

Every single human being is made from different data today there. If they can find a of the criminal or whatever or does from his skin, they can find out exactly who he is through DNA studies. So we see that these words like Ramadan once in the whole forum,

00:07:57--> 00:08:10

Allah you talks about taqwa many times in the Quran about ashira about the prophets, Hatcher example, mentioned 31 times in the Holy Quran. Salah mentioned 140 times in the Quran

00:08:11--> 00:08:18

xhaka mentioned 42 times in the Quran, but the Ramadan and Ramadan fasting

00:08:19--> 00:08:31

is probably the heaviest on the scale that have kiama because it is that I bada which will be rewarded for and given to you only the deaf piano yet Allah meet only once and we will we'll come to the

00:08:33--> 00:08:46

The second important thing is that so that's number one. Ramadan comes first I mean Ramadan comes only once in the second thing is it's very important to know the way Allah mentions Ramadan in the Quran.

00:08:48--> 00:09:00

Number two, where does Allah mentioned? Our said way, Allah mentions verse one eight, for the roundabout 184 I'm not exactly certain, but certainly between 183 and 185

00:09:01--> 00:09:15

which means that Ramadan is mentioned immediately after what if you read the Quran which refer to find that the first half of Surah Baqarah speaks only about the bernisa in

00:09:16--> 00:09:55

Allah speaks only about the Jews in the first half of Surah Baqarah What does Allah tell him? Allah points at all the mistakes they made, changing the Quran, and so forth and so on. And the most important thing Allah tells them is over and over. You're not people of taqwa. You have not developed taqwa. And because you have not developed taqwa, despite all the things I've given to you, I'm not going to put the Prophet dude again, amongst the bunnies, right? Sorry. You've had your turn. He was a nation you were those people. I gave you all the profits after he moves on everybody else around everybody came to you. But now things are going to change and it's going to change

00:09:55--> 00:09:57

because you have not developed a core

00:10:01--> 00:10:25

So let's fix and I want you to remember this because at the end of the goodbye it's going to be it's going to be very important. Then when allies completes that, after Allah tells the B'nai Israel that they have not developed taco despite all the things which allows for handler done to them and given to them. Allah mentioned Habib Rahim Allah salatu salam, why?

00:10:26--> 00:10:29

Because so now you can return a Baccarat again and you can

00:10:30--> 00:10:47

see what a speaking Allah mentioned there be Brahim Why? Because Nabil Brahim is the link between the Arabs and the Jews. We know his smile was the son of Nabil Ibrahim. And from a smile came the

00:10:48--> 00:11:02

quiet responses came they can the Arabs, and from his Hawk, also the son of Ibrahim came when Israel the Jews, so a common ancestor brought a Muslim. So Allah now tells the Jews

00:11:04--> 00:11:14

I've given you your chance. I've given you everything. I'm not going to choose a prophet from amongst you. But remember, you and the Arabs have a common interest.

00:11:15--> 00:11:18

So if I choose the prophet to come from

00:11:19--> 00:11:37

the other side of Ibrahima, that is my choice, but it is still part of you. That Prophet was the Why do you deny this allows hamdullah Why do the Jews not want to accept Muhammad is the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he was also offspring? progeny of NaVi briny malissa

00:11:38--> 00:11:46

But no, the Jews wanted specifically a prophet to come from his heart and no prophet ever came from his heart.

00:11:47--> 00:12:14

The Prophet that came was from Allah He alayhi salatu wa sallam. So the idea then that the Jews in the middle of Surah Al Baqarah, Allah stripped them of the title as the chosen people of allowes pinata they are prior to that they got everything they got most of the good reason they will say about last time we look at the sea open for them the heavens open food came down for the Mashallah

00:12:16--> 00:12:19

they prefer to heal the sick raise the dead, all these things happen to them.

00:12:22--> 00:12:50

And when allow song that I stole them all that allow and what versus Allah subhanaw taala talk about when Allah talks about nahi Brahim today. What is the verse which verse and you can read this in the Quran? Allah Swami says, What is the urfa Ibrahim al Khawaja we debate What is my Allah says. And when Abraham and Ishmael laid the foundations of

00:12:51--> 00:13:17

elbaite which is that, which is the Kaaba, Allah says to the to the Jews, who lay the foundations of the Kaaba is smile and Ibrahim robina Taco Bell Mina in the canta similarly, and what did they say? What Ingraham say? And he smile say when they laid the foundation they said, Oh Allah accepted from us with the art the old hearing the old boy.

00:13:20--> 00:13:21

So the burning of the Kaaba then

00:13:24--> 00:13:27

in the first half of Surah Al Baqarah.

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

And why is this important?

00:13:31--> 00:13:35

It's important because Allah is still talking to the Jews. Now let's telling them

00:13:36--> 00:13:40

that I want to remind you that it was your

00:13:42--> 00:13:45

the father of your profits, Ibrahim that builder's club

00:13:50--> 00:13:52

and you know if you isolate in what's going to happen

00:13:55--> 00:14:07

after this Allah Allah Swanton told the Jews that you haven't developed a prototype Ibrahim Elisa Swami, the merkabah allows the hand with Allah commands the Muslims

00:14:08--> 00:14:11

to pray towards the Kaaba

00:14:13--> 00:14:17

to turn away from magic roxa and to turn towards acaba.

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

And

00:14:24--> 00:14:26

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Of course,

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

always wanted to pray towards the Kaaba.

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

In fact, when he was in Makkah,

00:14:35--> 00:14:40

it was possible for the Nabi sallallahu wasallam, to face the Kaaba and by to look at this

00:14:42--> 00:14:51

with an emphasis on praise in the Quran, used to pray in such a spot that we could face the Kaaba and you will be facing magic locks at the same time.

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

You know that's possible.

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

But when you came to Medina was not posted.

00:15:01--> 00:15:13

If he wanted to face the Kaaba, if you wanted to face big locks, I had to stand with his back to the cabin couldn't face both at the same time, but allowed logs in and knew that Mohammed Salam wanted to face the Kaaba.

00:15:15--> 00:15:20

He missed facing the Kaaba, when he was in, in in Medina

00:15:21--> 00:15:23

and so a lot of time that tells them that

00:15:24--> 00:15:25

Alibaba chick

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

fil a in the world liquid Latin

00:15:30--> 00:15:44

allows formula setup. So Mohammed Salah, we noticed that you, you're not at ease, your face turns in the heavens. You want to face the Kaaba and allows you to handle again

00:15:46--> 00:15:52

in the second year of the hegira change the Kaaba from by tremendous to the karma

00:15:57--> 00:15:58

and I want you to listen carefully to this.

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

A nation is known by its capital.

00:16:06--> 00:16:11

Whether it's the French in Paris, or England and London America it's

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

Mashallah

00:16:15--> 00:16:17

Washington, South Africa it's

00:16:20--> 00:16:30

a Pretoria doesn't sound to me as the capital of Cyprus something wrongly you know, which, say Johannesburg, it sounds a little bit but Pretoria seems a bit on the fringes. But anyway, that's our capital

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

and capital of Islam

00:16:36--> 00:16:37

is Makkah.

00:16:39--> 00:16:48

When Allah changed the Qibla, Allah changed our identity. When Allah change the Qibla, Allah changed the identity of the Muslims and made the Muslims

00:16:49--> 00:16:51

from then onwards a separate nation.

00:16:52--> 00:16:57

Because a nation can only be a nation of United own capital, when you know that,

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

that

00:17:03--> 00:17:10

when there is war, you can conquer all the cities have a nation, but you won't conquer that nation until you conquer the capital city.

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

Only when the truth masses marched into Berlin.

00:17:15--> 00:17:18

The end of the Second World War, the second world war was won.

00:17:20--> 00:17:22

Until the land didn't fall.

00:17:23--> 00:17:51

The Allied Powers then win the war. So allowed to hunter Lavine changed our Qibla from beta to Makkah, he gave us a capital and he made us a new nation. So immediately after that we read in sort of a backer Allah says Waka jalna, como, mutton wasa? And so we made you a nation, a middle nation, but we made you a nation on its own.

00:17:54--> 00:17:56

And the Jews, Allah tells us in the Quran

00:17:57--> 00:18:06

that the Jews didn't like this. They didn't like this. They didn't like it that allows. Mohamed Salah has now had now turned away from Michael McCandless

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

and was now facing Mecca.

00:18:11--> 00:18:31

And he says why didn't they like it? I mean, if you have a Christian friend who have a Jewish friend, do you have a Hindu friend or a Buddhist friend? What are the content which way you face when you make Salah these are interested in where you fish and mixes notice none of your concern is a Jew or a Christian or Hindu or whatever it is. Why does he care about where you stand where you face?

00:18:32--> 00:18:43

So what what do you think why do the Jews care that allows Abdullah Mohammed Salah has now now abandoned the joint in common Qibla and now he was facing

00:18:44--> 00:18:45

Mecca.

00:18:46--> 00:18:55

Now latrunculin first it was in the Quran. Surah Baqarah. Allah says sepuluh sufa mina nurse, Mauer lavonne Qibla tm Allah.

00:18:56--> 00:18:57

Allah Allah sadhana says,

00:18:58--> 00:19:02

and the silly people amongst the Jews, the ignorant people amongst the Jews.

00:19:04--> 00:19:30

So for our grossmith idiots amongst the Jews, asked the Arabs as the Muslims mavala who would change them what made them change their Qibla from vital Modesto to Makkah, what made them do it? And you know, it's always it's always the senate people that brings out the truth. That was actually the what, what, what, what all the Jews were saying, change and change people.

00:19:32--> 00:19:34

They were offended why they were offended

00:19:36--> 00:19:37

because now

00:19:39--> 00:19:49

the Muslims were no more a part of that line. That line of recognition of the chosen people.

00:19:50--> 00:19:51

You must remember

00:19:55--> 00:19:58

before this change before, a lot of change the Qibla

00:20:01--> 00:20:03

We used to force in the same days as the Jews.

00:20:05--> 00:20:18

before Ramadan came before I let Mr. Ramadan the Quran was for three days it was less than 10 days, but exactly the same days you start the fourth on the same time you stay in the fourth and the same time we used to pray in the same direction was locks.

00:20:20--> 00:20:26

We used to pray at the same time in the morning before Salah we can fall in the morning and in the evening.

00:20:27--> 00:20:38

Why? Because Mohammed Al Salam was commanded to follow the Sharia which came before him until Allah replaced it. And what Sharia was that

00:20:39--> 00:20:45

the Sharia musasa because who did you meet a narrow who told him to go back to Allah?

00:20:46--> 00:20:57

Why was it moose out of 1400 prophets? Why did Moses a Mohammed Come come from Yama, those chives, they're down there, in Cape Town in New elsayed. I'm going to pray 50 times a day.

00:20:58--> 00:21:04

Why? Because Moosa knew that these bunnies couldn't do it. They couldn't do it.

00:21:05--> 00:21:33

So we have a very strong link with it with a Jewish prayer the same time fostered the same days at the same Qibla because Mohammed Salah Salam was an instruction by Allah subhanaw taala, that until Allah changed the law, the law he would follow the law of Moosa AlLahi wa Salatu was now allows, since verse of the Quran. What is the verse? refer to the beginning? Allah says, Yeah, you will Athena hamano

00:21:34--> 00:21:47

kutti baalei camassia karma katiba de la Vina means we don't have to have this music. I think my voice is musical enough. So please, switch of all your music that you have, please.

00:21:49--> 00:21:56

So Allah says, are you people who believe fasting has been prescribed for you as it was prescribed to those before you?

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

Who are those before us?

00:22:01--> 00:22:04

The Jews, who are those before us when Israel

00:22:06--> 00:22:07

in the first house,

00:22:08--> 00:22:15

Ben Israel, the Jews. So Allah says, Oh, you Muslims, are you Muslim sala de sala de la Muslims.

00:22:17--> 00:22:21

Fasting has been prescribed for you as it was prescribed to the Jews before you.

00:22:23--> 00:22:27

Which was how many days less than 10 lolicon.

00:22:28--> 00:22:46

So that perhaps you may develop for taqwa. So now the meaning becomes clear. The emphasis is not on perhaps, but on you so that you may develop taqwa. Those chaps the bunnies that I couldn't develop taqwa, you inshallah will develop,

00:22:47--> 00:23:05

allows father says so, but if they spoil their chances in developing taqwa, but inshallah I have faced a lot of Fontella that you and levena Avenue, those those of you who accept La Ilaha Illa, Allah human developed.

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

So what then

00:23:11--> 00:23:23

is Taka? Taka comes from Korea in Islam Of course, we translated just generally as fear of a loss actually means with IRA what is retired means protection.

00:23:25--> 00:23:27

taqwa means protection

00:23:28--> 00:23:30

and protection from what?

00:23:35--> 00:23:54

protection from everything that can harm us. Economic faith, can ama physical bodies can allow everything. So we seek protection from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the real meaning of taqwa is, it is fasting is a means to protect yourself.

00:23:55--> 00:23:58

It is a means to protect yourself.

00:24:00--> 00:24:06

Now, what does that mean? What does it mean that fasting is a means to protect yourself?

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

You know, if you want to

00:24:09--> 00:24:11

lots of you work in companies.

00:24:14--> 00:24:17

way, if you're a new worker, what do they do to you?

00:24:19--> 00:24:19

They train you.

00:24:21--> 00:24:28

Training is very important. For example, you want to be a policeman, or you want to be a fireman, oh, and to be a soldier.

00:24:29--> 00:24:38

They train you first so that your body can adapt to the challenges that you will face out in the field. For example, if you're interested in a fire, man, what do they do?

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

They create a fire.

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

They make a fire, they control the fire. And then they teach you how to put the fire out different from what is going to be outside. They tell you to climb down a tall building but this is under controlled conditions. And when they see that you strong enough, you've had enough training then they put you into a real fire and real buildings to climb down.

00:25:01--> 00:25:02

Same with fasting.

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

The same with fasting.

00:25:07--> 00:25:12

I mean, you will agree with me that when you fast you feel a lot of there's a lot of feelings that goes through your mind. You feel hungry.

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

You feel thirsty.

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

There's a war going on inside your body.

00:25:20--> 00:25:25

It's always telling, you know, especially the younger people, maybe men, just

00:25:28--> 00:25:36

saying, you know, who is this applies, you know, look up is no supplies coming down. So some people get into this.

00:25:37--> 00:25:42

But what what do you say the good Muslim, the strong Muslim says no, no, no, no, no.

00:25:44--> 00:25:46

My heart has submitted to Allah.

00:25:48--> 00:26:00

Therefore, I don't care what the body says, I don't care what you tell me. I don't care with you crying out for food. I don't care whether you says he doesn't matter to me. I've submitted my heart to allow

00:26:03--> 00:26:09

as much What have you done, you've trained your heart to submit. you've trained your heart to control your body.

00:26:10--> 00:26:20

You've undergone train like the fire man. He's been trained. He knows how to fight a fire. So you Ramadan is the period where you train yourself. You train your heart.

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

And why is this important?

00:26:25--> 00:26:48

Because when Ramadan is over and finished, your heart needs to be completely trained to face the challenges that will come after Ramadan. So after Ramadan, because your heart is in charge of your body and not vice versa, you will look at what you eat. You decide what you want to eat, what you don't want to eat. You also decide where you want to go. You'll also decide what you want to look at.

00:26:51--> 00:26:54

Because your heart is no stronger and is the heart

00:26:55--> 00:26:57

chakra in the heart. We're in

00:26:59--> 00:27:12

financing Minta Khokhlova last longer says taqwa is in the heart. If the heart is strong, the heart controls everything else. So young brothers, I'm talking to the young people, the young girls and the young boys.

00:27:13--> 00:27:17

Remember, if you watch movies, at home in Ramadan, you're not fasting

00:27:19--> 00:27:27

while you're not fasting, because your urges and your desires are controlling your heart and not vice versa.

00:27:28--> 00:27:32

You are not training your heart to control your eyes.

00:27:33--> 00:27:54

Because this taqwa is not just controlling what goes into the stomach, it also you must also control your eyes when you look in Ramadan. Of course, always but particularly in Ramadan. When you see something you're not supposed to look at, once you say to yourself, you say yeah, Allah, I'm looking away for your sake. Yeah, this is what you must do. You must say, you're not looking for you.

00:27:55--> 00:27:56

I'm doing this for you.

00:27:58--> 00:28:02

So the greatest and the glory of you, I'm not doing this.

00:28:07--> 00:28:09

So the only exercise of fasting then

00:28:10--> 00:28:16

is not just the heart controlling the stomach, it's our controlling you fight or Mohamad whoever is

00:28:18--> 00:28:27

allowed to analyze saying, and if we don't do this, young people, if you don't do this, you are just like bunnies, right?

00:28:28--> 00:28:35

They've lost it. But they didn't develop Taekwondo Allah, Allah removed everything from them. In fact, they were cursed after that.

00:28:38--> 00:28:41

So Los Angeles says to the Muslims

00:28:44--> 00:28:47

quotevalet camassia it's now your turn.

00:28:48--> 00:28:55

spoken to you by bodyside in the beginning of Surah Baqarah. Now's your turn. I might not forcing compulsory upon you.

00:28:57--> 00:29:00

And hopefully inshallah, you will

00:29:01--> 00:29:15

develop protection. You're going to the training to train your heart to be strong to protect and to guide the rest of your body. But really now what do we think when we think about Ramadan? First thing we need to think about Ramadan is

00:29:16--> 00:29:17

what do you think?

00:29:18--> 00:29:20

Now, what do you think? What do you know?

00:29:21--> 00:29:27

What does your wife do in Ramadan? before Ramadan comes? What is the first thing you think about? If staff

00:29:31--> 00:29:31

just like you,

00:29:33--> 00:29:35

we must get the samosa supply.

00:29:36--> 00:29:39

But that's the first thing. The sisters

00:29:41--> 00:29:47

we don't think about fasting. We think about food. But we think about food.

00:29:49--> 00:29:54

And yet fasting is your training. It's our training

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

to say without food, but the thing we think about the most is food.

00:30:04--> 00:30:27

And allows longer has made it easy for us fasting. First of all, he says while Sophie that the Shire theme this is another thing which always bothered me also, Allah says shaytan is fastened, but I don't know I still think he's there he still does things to me that I'm not supposed to be looking at or seeing or doing he still put things in my life. So do you find the same thing?

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

Am I

00:30:32--> 00:30:35

my bad person? No.

00:30:36--> 00:30:42

He has been fastened. But you know you look around during the world safe I can't even

00:30:44--> 00:30:51

look again into how the Nautilus is. But you see, we don't read the Hadith properly. I was always right. And we always wrong.

00:30:53--> 00:31:06

Remember that if you doubt and you think that unless you know what's happening look at you know, I'm shouting out I'm swearing at my boys I'm doing all the things and so you know, this is supposed to be shut down to work in an unwelcome Shavasana

00:31:07--> 00:31:11

allows the prophets of Salaam says while Sufi that he shall

00:31:13--> 00:31:20

listen what is how do you think? The shouting not shaytaan shouting is plural of shaitaan

00:31:21--> 00:31:23

Allah says and all the shaytans

00:31:25--> 00:31:25

are tied up

00:31:27--> 00:31:38

are you more confused? But some of you will be not because I've I've given you some of this information after that afternoon I'll give a give a short talk in the message. Yesterday I gave was it yesterday yesterday.

00:31:39--> 00:31:42

Who is she thought kushida

00:31:44--> 00:31:47

you see now that we go wrong shaytan is not the devil.

00:31:48--> 00:31:49

Wow.

00:31:51--> 00:31:55

You say wow. Excuse me. Satan is the Devil Satan

00:31:57--> 00:31:59

allows Bhangra says in the Quran

00:32:03--> 00:32:07

say altino intelligent. Allah says shaytaan

00:32:09--> 00:32:10

is men and Jean.

00:32:11--> 00:32:16

You get mentioned on human beings wash a THON and gene that the shaytaan

00:32:20--> 00:32:23

that's why we say are all the Billahi min Iblees

00:32:24--> 00:32:28

you tell the Berlinale Please no. You say oh Billahi min ash shaytaan

00:32:30--> 00:32:31

Why not?

00:32:33--> 00:32:48

Because when you say ultimate when you seek refuge in Allah, you seek refuge in Allah from mansha Khan and Jean chethan. And who's the police? He's a corporate it's a beliefs. That is the devil

00:32:49--> 00:32:53

it bleeds is the devil he's army it's called child theme.

00:32:55--> 00:32:56

Blue love shaper.

00:32:57--> 00:33:02

So when Allah says the child theme is tied up in means the shaytan amongst us

00:33:03--> 00:33:10

because you're fasting so all the shayateen amongst us I think maybe somebody was loose till

00:33:11--> 00:33:13

I get that impression but let's have a listen.

00:33:15--> 00:33:27

So allow to others made fast and easy because he's tired of all these child teams he says remember the devil is not a thought the devil is simply a thought. I mean I'm not I mean we can be shouting

00:33:29--> 00:33:32

like diner chef misshapen anyway.

00:33:35--> 00:33:37

So when Ramadan is over

00:33:39--> 00:33:52

shaitan is loose because more difficult so Ramadan should be easier. So let's move on. I said in the beginning, a lot of farmer says a year after Allah says inshallah you will develop taco Muslims don't be like the Jews

00:33:53--> 00:34:00

go through the period of training 30 days I gave it a train controller heart. Allah says am Mr. Duda.

00:34:02--> 00:34:03

Fasting is

00:34:05--> 00:34:21

on a number of days and model that as I said is my Gemini killer. It refers to a number less than 10 net from nine downwards. So Allah says you're fasting is nine days he was referring to the Jews so does Why is not about

00:34:22--> 00:34:24

the Muslims. This ayah

00:34:26--> 00:34:31

refers to the man Israel says and the money is ill fasted less than 10 days.

00:34:32--> 00:34:36

A Yamato dot from Academy in Camarillo, Nevada suffering.

00:34:38--> 00:34:46

Come find the tone. Allah says if you are sick, or you are on a journey,

00:34:47--> 00:34:48

two ways to fix it.

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

First you can pay in and then Allah says one Nadine at Punahou. Forget Antonescu. You cannot force in the month of Ramadan. Allah says two things you can do.

00:35:01--> 00:35:02

You can pay

00:35:03--> 00:35:04

or you can

00:35:06--> 00:35:10

feed a poor person. Remember this remember this remember

00:35:14--> 00:35:17

for Who is this for the Jews

00:35:19--> 00:35:26

but I'll also on the tos woman totowa Hara, find Allah shackelton

00:35:27--> 00:35:27

Allah.

00:35:30--> 00:35:31

So Allah says you can

00:35:32--> 00:35:39

find the dominium Johar or you can feed a poor person. And Allah says, you can choose

00:35:41--> 00:36:12

you can choose if you want to feed a poor person if you can fart in the month of Ramadan, or you must fast in who has that for, for the Jews, we can do that we can choose to be free or not. If you can pass in brother You must fall in. You can say well, you know the currency No, that is not meant for us. In the time of benissa. Allah gave them two choices two ways to fix if they couldn't pass in the month of Ramadan, one was fasting, or they must give failure and they could they could choose between the two. Now comes reverse allows for hunger says

00:36:18--> 00:36:19

Shahada Ramadan

00:36:21--> 00:36:32

only time in the whole Quran of all the five finals and allez mifold upon us. Now let's check Ramadan towards shabu from

00:36:34--> 00:36:35

then allows longer says

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

so when the Sahaba

00:36:46--> 00:36:59

contemplated on fasting, the first verse the first 183 so that is what I thought about those are the rules of fasting now allows holidays comes Ramadan.

00:37:05--> 00:37:11

What comes immediately after that shall Ramadan Allahi katiba faecium

00:37:14--> 00:37:20

so Ramadan is the month in which allegedly try fasting for you?

00:37:25--> 00:37:31

No, no doesn't say that. Allah doesn't say shout Ramadan is the month in which I prescribed for Allah.

00:37:32--> 00:37:34

Allah says Allah the Quran, Allah Fie.

00:37:35--> 00:37:45

Allah says, month of Ramadan, nothing Allah doesn't mention fasting or a star or food whatever Allah says, Allah the own Zilla field.

00:37:48--> 00:37:51

So what is the most important thing about your Ramadan?

00:37:56--> 00:38:05

The Quran and Who says that? allows all Muslims remember Shahada, Ramadan, Allah He owns Isla fi Hill.

00:38:08--> 00:38:09

So we have to ask ourselves the question.

00:38:13--> 00:38:17

Fasting is secondary. Number two. Number one

00:38:18--> 00:38:24

is that Ramadan, the month of Ramadan is the month of Ramadan because of

00:38:26--> 00:38:31

Ramadan is not the month of Ramadan because we stay away from food and drink no

00:38:32--> 00:38:43

Ramadan is because that is why when we do not read the Quran in the month of Ramadan. We haven't even memorized one or two verses of the Quran in the month of Ramadan.

00:38:45--> 00:38:50

Or we haven't even tried to understand something of the month of Ramadan.

00:38:51--> 00:39:01

In the Quran or something about Quran know all of us redacting for example, how many of you have read the tafsir tafsir aura or the translation sir, yes.

00:39:02--> 00:39:04

There is a man to the Quran

00:39:06--> 00:39:09

maybe we should try to memorize something Amanda Rama, Ramadan.

00:39:11--> 00:39:14

So Allah has given us the entire month of Ramadan

00:39:16--> 00:39:17

to celebrate the Quran.

00:39:20--> 00:39:22

So what did we say? We said

00:39:25--> 00:39:26

that

00:39:28--> 00:39:30

every nation has a capital.

00:39:31--> 00:39:34

The capital of Islam is maccha, namely the Kaaba

00:39:37--> 00:39:39

and what is what else does every nation have?

00:39:41--> 00:39:44

a constitution. Every nation has a constitution.

00:39:45--> 00:39:48

And what is our constitution? The Quran

00:39:49--> 00:39:54

so what might make us a nation and john we have a capital and we have a constitution

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

and every nation has gone

00:40:00--> 00:40:13

diffusion day where they celebrate the writing and implementation of the Constitution allows for hundreds given us not one day to celebrate our constitution allows Euler says I'm giving you a whole month to celebrate this Koran which are given to you.

00:40:19--> 00:40:22

And I'm going to give you Ramadan also as a month of training

00:40:24--> 00:40:26

the heart to control the body.

00:40:29--> 00:40:35

Then Allah says, who the leanness nothing about fasting, nothing about nothing shall Rama Allah

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

says, and this Quran was sent

00:40:41--> 00:40:43

as a guidance for the whole of humanity.

00:40:44--> 00:40:52

First time in the history of prophethood, that a prophet said that he died, his constitution was all of mankind.

00:40:56--> 00:40:58

Last time the Jews were upset about this,

00:40:59--> 00:41:14

because all the prophets would just send to the bunny side, Isaiah Musa Tao who wrote oats and was just sent to the Jews. Now Allah says, No, no, no, no, no, no, no, you hegemony in having prophets and it's only for you, and you are the chosen people, those days are gone.

00:41:15--> 00:41:18

Every person in the world can become a member

00:41:19--> 00:41:22

of this nation state whose constitution is the Quran

00:41:24--> 00:41:25

and whose capital is

00:41:26--> 00:41:27

no exclusions.

00:41:29--> 00:41:32

And we know a Muslim can never be racist.

00:41:36--> 00:41:54

We never get in the world and you look at churches, for example, you get the Greek Orthodox Church, every church, every deed, not only denomination, but every language is going to change. If you go to America, Europe, you'll find churches for black people, churches, for white people, churches, for Hispanics, churches, for all for Arabs who are not Muslim.

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

But in Islam,

00:41:59--> 00:42:02

the whole of the United Nations can be found in one mistreat

00:42:06--> 00:42:21

sometimes the boss ends the back and the employee stand in front. Sometimes the employee is a mom and the boss has to stand behind him in normal life, the black and the white everybody if you come first that you can stand with me you understand if you want to be

00:42:22--> 00:42:23

and that's what

00:42:24--> 00:42:39

I cannot understand why some Muslims insult other Muslims or other people, they look down upon some nation some people they say oh that person is like this or that nation is like that, or people who speak that language you can't trust them, etc etc etc yet Islam

00:42:42--> 00:42:48

brought us Allah so if you are a scholar make if you make Salah you can never be a racist person. Absolutely not.

00:42:50--> 00:42:53

And you know, we may know we may not know each other's names, I don't know all your names.

00:42:57--> 00:43:21

But there is something that binds me to you which is greater than blood, thicker than blood stronger than blood. And that is La Ilaha Illa La Ilaha Illa. Allah makes my relationship with you even though I don't know your name. But that makes a relation and the Quran is the glue that binds us together because when you come to the magic, what do we listen to when we listen to the Quran? In a way you're going to the world, no matter who you are.

00:43:22--> 00:43:27

Then Allah says, whether you inactive in a Buddha or for nothing about fasting,

00:43:28--> 00:43:38

still nothing about fasting. The verse is going to its Haffner Allah says and in the Quran, you will find multiple proofs

00:43:41--> 00:43:47

for this guidance which you find which is in the Quran, the miracles of the guidance which is in the Quran

00:43:50--> 00:43:54

so all this allows one to speaking about the Quran

00:43:57--> 00:44:00

Why is Allah doing this? Because he wants to make sure

00:44:01--> 00:44:07

that every Muslim has understand that Ramadan is about the Quran. And really

00:44:09--> 00:44:25

it must be about the Quran. Because if we really understand as you can hear from the hardware if you really understand the for so many things become clear to us. And you know, today we have no excuse we have the internet web publishing so many languages were books written on the web so much.

00:44:26--> 00:44:38

And that is why we left the AMA this oma Obama would have done excused in front of our loss handler nobody will be able to say I don't know. I didn't know. We can't there's no such thing. Ignorance is no excuse on the left.

00:44:43--> 00:44:47

Who says I don't have 10 minutes left? Put up your hands.

00:44:50--> 00:44:55

Nobody Mashallah. So I'm not feeling guilty by gone. I want to tell you just a little story.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

Maybe I should leave that for last.

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

So,

00:45:03--> 00:45:16

as I said, let me finish this sort of verse of the Quran. Nima said and there were two ways if you couldn't pass it on hold on Allah Sarla gave the Jews two ways of getting out one was

00:45:18--> 00:45:21

paid in make it up second was feeder poor person defeated?

00:45:23--> 00:45:24

Now Allah says

00:45:26--> 00:45:30

one can I mean Kumar Eden Allah suffer inside the tubing

00:45:32--> 00:45:36

for Allah say now and if you are ill on a journey in the month of Ramadan

00:45:37--> 00:45:40

you have no more choices now you must must buy in.

00:45:42--> 00:45:44

There is no Murphy Deanna.

00:45:45--> 00:45:51

Allah says you Muslims, you didn't foresee Ramadan for because you were ill on a journey you have to pay in?

00:45:52--> 00:45:54

Is that the more difficult or less difficult?

00:45:56--> 00:45:58

More difficult? It's harder.

00:45:59--> 00:46:00

If you had a choice to give to

00:46:03--> 00:46:06

give him a plate of food, you know, that's harder but what is Allah?

00:46:08--> 00:46:22

Allah says, you read the law become a user of Allah. Allah says, How to make things easy for you. I don't want to make things difficult. What is this? You've taken a choice and when you say I'm not easy, but you make an odd what would you say making it easy for us?

00:46:25--> 00:46:36

To give you another choice, I mean, we would have loved just to feed a poor person. Because we were sick in the month of Ramadan. Or maybe the woman was rated in the month of Ramadan no choice. Why

00:46:39--> 00:46:47

is a powerful lesson in this for us? What is Allah saying? Allah says I'm taking choice away but it's still easy, I'm still making it easy for you.

00:46:49--> 00:46:53

And what is the lesson allows pantalla is saying

00:46:55--> 00:46:59

to fast in Ramadan is easy to fast at any other time.

00:47:02--> 00:47:09

So rather fast in the month because fasting in Ramadan. You know this, you have to pay your 14 after Milan.

00:47:10--> 00:47:16

Justice is a shabaan I mean, the whole year has gone past but you just can't get to fasting in

00:47:18--> 00:47:36

your first 30 consecutive days in Ramadan, but after Ramadan shot becomes extremely difficult. So that's why Allah says you read the law who become our Muslims I have made the month of Ramadan easy for you to fast. So you should if you want to fast fast in the month of Ramadan

00:47:37--> 00:47:40

because after that comes 10 times more difficult.

00:47:42--> 00:47:44

I want to just tell you a little story

00:47:45--> 00:47:46

about the Bernice rail

00:47:49--> 00:47:50

and about

00:47:51--> 00:47:54

musasa to Salah, Moosa Elisa.

00:47:56--> 00:48:03

Now, if you ask any Jew, and I got this from somebody who had asked a rabbi a question

00:48:06--> 00:48:19

he Muslim said to the rabbi Moosa is not a Hebrew name. Moosa is not a Hebrew name. So the rabbi said, but how can moose are not the Hebrew name when, when when musasa was a Jew?

00:48:20--> 00:48:24

Musa was a Jew. So the Muslim children listen to me.

00:48:26--> 00:48:28

Moosa was born way

00:48:29--> 00:48:32

you can answer the questions whereas Musa born in Egypt

00:48:33--> 00:48:34

and then what happened to him?

00:48:36--> 00:48:40

His mother put him in a little cradle on Robben Island he went into Whoopi came up,

00:48:41--> 00:48:43

around around twice.

00:48:45--> 00:48:45

She was a Muslim.

00:48:46--> 00:48:49

So what happened?

00:48:50--> 00:48:52

He grew up in the house of

00:48:53--> 00:48:54

now.

00:48:56--> 00:49:22

What? What do they want to do with him? Do they want to keep moose as a slave or as a child of this? Ah, so who gave them the name? Who breastfed him? His mother his mother was a slave. Would they give you They asked the slave to give him the name of the master gives the name the master would use the name was the master you know the master was a word Egyptian. So what name did they give him? An Egyptian name.

00:49:23--> 00:49:33

Moosa the Jew says, Moshe, Moshe, that's Hebrew. Moshe was Moshe made movements water shamans.

00:49:35--> 00:49:37

person. So move shamans.

00:49:38--> 00:49:53

From the one from water made from water. Of course we know everybody's made from wood. So they said no, no, no, no, don't motion. We got a Hebrew name. This is an Egyptian name. Do you agree with these three verses? Yes, I agree with these three. She says the Egyptian name.

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

But time of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and Mohammed Salim came

00:50:00--> 00:50:04

Egyptian land which was already dead for 3000 years

00:50:07--> 00:50:08

to

00:50:11--> 00:50:14

Jefferson land which was dead for 3000 years

00:50:17--> 00:50:22

okay. So, when Allah when the talks about Moosa in the Quran

00:50:23--> 00:50:26

the Arabs didn't know what it meant, they just thought there was a name Musa

00:50:27--> 00:50:31

why because in gyptian name and the Egyptian language was Did

00:50:34--> 00:50:37

that make sense right now.

00:50:40--> 00:50:42

So, the the the Muslim says to the rabbi

00:50:47--> 00:50:49

but we now today

00:50:50--> 00:50:51

in the 21st century

00:50:53--> 00:51:00

we know that the Egyptologists has deciphered the Egyptian hieroglyphics.

00:51:01--> 00:51:04

They know now what the alphabet means and they know everything.

00:51:06--> 00:51:09

So, now we know today what Moosa means.

00:51:11--> 00:51:12

Today we know what Musa means.

00:51:15--> 00:51:16

And what is Musa mean?

00:51:17--> 00:51:19

Allah Subhana tells us in the Quran

00:51:22--> 00:51:24

it was our last 100 a new

00:51:26--> 00:51:33

he was Allah just a miracle of the Quran. Only the one knows the Egyptian would would that be?

00:51:34--> 00:51:38

Allah? Allah says, as

00:51:39--> 00:51:41

a young foreigner,

00:51:42--> 00:51:44

oh Natasha, who

00:51:49--> 00:51:53

allows one that says, when asked to borrow news or to figure out

00:51:55--> 00:51:57

she said to him, What did she say to him?

00:51:58--> 00:51:58

She said,

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

perhaps don't kill him. Perhaps. She said

00:52:06--> 00:52:07

he will be a benefit to us.

00:52:09--> 00:52:12

All we can take him for us as a newborn.

00:52:15--> 00:52:15

Lesson.

00:52:17--> 00:52:22

What did she say to him? She says, because she wanted to charge she couldn't have chosen a phone she wanted to.

00:52:23--> 00:52:40

She said, Oh, my husband, please take the chair. I know you want to kill all the children. You will kill all the boys older. But let's keep this one. Maybe Maybe he will be beneficial to us. Maybe you can take him for it because I can't. Let let's take in with tell everybody that this is our newborn child.

00:52:41--> 00:52:45

And you know what Moosa means. Guess what Moosa means newborn.

00:52:47--> 00:52:49

The word mouza means newborn

00:52:51--> 00:52:59

allows you the Hatano was telling the Muslims and telling us that allows Mandarin new hieroglyphics.

00:53:02--> 00:53:03

Only Allah.

00:53:04--> 00:53:08

So Allah says, I tell you how I know because I put it I put in his name in the

00:53:10--> 00:53:26

newborn. And so they gave the child's name. And today they've discovered that the word Moosa in our glyphs in Egypt, Egyptian language, with giant 3000 years ago. Now 4000, maybe longer ago, means Moosa so May Allah give inshallah that

00:53:28--> 00:53:32

we, you know, all about change of mindset.

00:53:34--> 00:53:51

And it's so beautiful because allows wondrous places to reconnect, the change of mind says we can look at something and that's why the Quran is a miracle in itself, because the mindset can change as it as that new knowledge comes in our mindsets change, we change our perspective on everything we need medicine.

00:53:54--> 00:54:02

I mean, today they have machines to catch up anymore, they just take the thing and they pointed and it burns the whatever is inside your stomach go inside your brain

00:54:04--> 00:54:09

without even performing an operation, that signs the Quran is the same scenario it

00:54:11--> 00:54:11

was the unforeseen

00:54:13--> 00:54:21

says I will show them in themselves and in the world in the environment. that this book is the hack from Alok

00:54:26--> 00:54:26
