Since Ramadan started Subhan Allah, we still remember I personally still remember when we were talking about

00:00:48--> 00:01:37

preparation for Ramadan, few days coming and left I mean, a week left the two weeks last few days and then that we can before Milan Subhan Allah, it's like flying. And here we are, the beautiful, the journalists, the amazing guest King showered us with all the blessings and left and Allah subhanaw taala anytime the time changes, or the same thing happens again. So and then the eighth comes again or like for us, then the United States this coming weekend is the memorial weekend every year. It's usually the Monday, the last Monday in May. So every time time repeat itself again, remember this verse in the Quran, almost pantalla said it's at the end of sort of four on a page

00:01:37--> 00:02:07

before the last before Allah Subhana Allah start talking about or describing his servant, a battle Rahman, the servant of the All Merciful he's put two vs tabarrok Allah the drala for summer he bought order, which if he has your origin will come around money or you notify him blessing him. The one who made for summer in the sky, JAL FERC. Raja a shining lamp, WA camara monniera an illuminating moon

00:02:51--> 00:02:57

00:02:58--> 00:03:16

winter comes and then go from hold on comms and then go. And inshallah he'll be I mean we will be alive. And next year when he comes again. He for sure is coming. But we don't know if we will be here to welcome him.

00:03:17--> 00:03:34

So hamdu lillahi, Rabbil aalameen these times when they come and leave it some way of reminder for us. He had dead cattle. So they remember, what do we need to remember when we talk about or Milan and the title you all have read it? What do I need to remember?

00:03:35--> 00:03:46

Yes, so my bond comes on goes, life is going I am getting older. All these are the most important thing fought related to Ramadan. A question comes in

00:03:48--> 00:04:42

three weeks ago, I and you and almost all the Muslims, we were absolutely in a different spiritual realm. We were in a different zone. We were connected with our loss pantalla at different levels, but all of us, all of us really liked those who can fasted Alhamdulillah all of us. Those who could try their best exception is very rare. Were able to stand on night. We were all dying to see a Jambi which night was near to each other. Everybody read the Quran, everyone, whether it's a page, whether it's the whole Quran, whether you have read the Oregon many times, everybody did their solar power law. We were in a completely different run. As if, like when you go back and just think of

00:04:42--> 00:04:58

especially the last 10 days of Ramadan. Some of us will say this is me. I was able to do that. The answer is yes, it was you. It was me. I was able you were able By Allah, Her Grace to do it.

00:04:59--> 00:04:59

And now what's hap

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

And

00:05:01--> 00:05:06

Ramadan ended aid came in and then here we are

00:05:08--> 00:05:20

some of us are martial law to Baraka law still at the same level majority of the people are not the same. And may Allah protect us may even weigh less.

00:05:21--> 00:06:09

And this is what after Ramadan what are some, some may tell you it's they call it alpha total by the Ramadan. The feeling bored feeling disconnected after Ramadan. First thing I want to remind myself and everybody this is a natural normal phenomena. What does that mean is to okay know what I'm seeing is a las panatela taught us this man. I thought I Swati salatu salam Imani as you dwell on such actually principle for the people of a sooner I assume now. We all believe in this that a man faith increase and decrease. What does that mean he man doesn't stay the same

00:06:11--> 00:06:52

at all. So Ramadan comes in and then we go up that high is not going to go this is not going to continue the same, it will go lower. But also can will go up so it is up and down. And even the Sahaba King Tora Swati Salatu was set out. And this was actually one of the companions who was talking to say now boubakeur, and he said, Yeah, I will back up. This is what I feel when I am with a roswaal. He is on auto center. I am. I feel so close. so energetic. I'm giving you the meanings. so energetic, so spiritual, close to Allah, I do all this. Then we leave our Swati Salatu. I leave over Swanee, Sato sir, then I go back to the family. And it's not the same as a normal backup. So

00:06:52--> 00:07:26

the same with winter roswaal, he saw to us and said this to him, that you're also a lot when we are with you. We are different people. We think of the hero we don't think of dunya. And then when we leave and this is exactly what they said, we go back to our homes and then we are indulged with family and with dunya. And then we are not the same. And Allah Swati sought to Salaam replied, and he saw to us and if you stayed all the time, the same way you are with me, angels would have shake your shake in your hand.

00:07:27--> 00:07:33

Meaning meaning this is a phenomena is there.

00:07:34--> 00:07:42

But that doesn't mean it's going to continue the same, because I just shared with you and I just said that he man faith goes up and down.

00:07:43--> 00:08:32

So we don't need to despair. We don't need to say Here we go again. What would What will I do to you to change? Let's not get choked on come through this despair mode. Having said that, we need to look at what do I need to do to continue 50% of what I did in Ramadan. And let me put 100% at least some days of the week. What do I need to do? And the next question, is it really possible Is this something possible? It will happen? The answer is yes. The answer absolutely easiest. How's that? There's a verse in sore to tober hamdulillah we just left Ramadan all of us full God will occur with Orion Allah and the last page of sort of October

00:08:33--> 00:09:05

and he lost pantalla revealed this verse. What did he say? So Hannah? He said what you down mountains you're not sure when a chapter was revealed? Right? For Minami or who are you comes out to her the manner when they hear this verse, they say to each other, which one of you this verse increased their email, increased their faith and Lavina Armando Posada to me manner, those who believe or the believers that a man will increase

00:09:06--> 00:09:13

meaning possible it will happen and there is a hidden message here is the verses of the Quran.

00:09:14--> 00:09:32

So yes, and now let's come to practical, what should I do? Where do I start? Start with the usual and I always start this with the following and at the end I'm going to give you like 10 or 15 quick points, but let's start with the beginning. Everything in life is the way I look at it.

00:09:34--> 00:09:57

Some people go through so much difficult time but you see them still composed and they are still not down. And you wonder what why is the way they look at things. So let's go and look at what to get stronger, to stay stronger after Ramadan and then inshallah as this continue, it will continue. Number one

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

look at this life.

00:10:01--> 00:10:28

As they say, also America in dunya look at this life, how long we will live. This is a reality that we forget an out of the Rama of Allah makes us nothing of it every single day otherwise it will be impossible to live. But the problem we all have is we forget it completely. And I always remind myself how often I undo think of the hereafter how often

00:10:30--> 00:10:41

So number one, let's look every day make it a point in your day to take a minute or two or three whatever Allah opens up and think of this life just around you.

00:10:42--> 00:11:06

And hopefully couple of the verses of the Quran or the meaning of it can come to you. How did Allah describe dunya and this in the end the Quran? Yeah animal? No, that's what Allah says is normal and normal higher to dunya no worldly. This lower life do your lower Bay's life

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

What is it you're allowed

00:11:09--> 00:11:10

to do? label

00:11:12--> 00:11:13

enjoyment while

00:11:15--> 00:12:06

having fun wasting time. Now who is it usually is the things you do that you waste. You're bored you just want to kill the time level and love is something you enjoy, but it's also waste your time. Yeah, no, the creator of the dunya is telling you and me. Wake up and know about the reality of the sly animal No. Animal hire to dunia let Avon wallow, enjoyment, amusement, wasting time and was Xena to glory beauty, whatever home usefulness water Catherine holding, I mean collecting more and more. On one you will all add more children more wealth. And then Allah gives the parable of it and I highly recommend for you each one listening to me just hamdulillah these days is so easy in your

00:12:06--> 00:12:15

core and search, search description of this life in the order and this one is going to come to this as a sort of headed, the one I just shared with you.

00:12:17--> 00:13:07

And it's like a rain. This is how Allah Most of the time describe life or rain comes in. Vegetation comes out flowers comes out to beautiful and then they become dry and die. That's life. I need to remind myself, why do I need to remind myself of this? Because the more I think of the hereafter of the Acura that I am meeting a lush pantalla there will be a day I am going to be asked there will be a day I have to respond. There will be a day I have to be no excuses. But I am going to have no excuses. The war I will be more focused and less distracted. And again, one practical example when we go when we hear somebody died and we go and pray janazah or we follow the and you see if somebody

00:13:07--> 00:13:12

is being put in the grave. How do you feel what interest in life you have.

00:13:13--> 00:13:19

Most of us when we come back from funeral or one way or janazah prayer we will say life's too short.

00:13:20--> 00:13:24

One day I'll be there. One day I will be preyed on

00:13:25--> 00:14:02

so number one. Anytime you feel the emotion is low, faith is low. I am bored. I am not connected. I am disconnected. I'm lazy and going up getting up for Salah is not as as energetic as I was in Ramadan, fasting little more any of the acts of worship. I'm feeling myself lazy, are feeling myself going back to my usual actions. Think of this life. And take a moment. This is tough. But it's so helpful. Think one minute

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

that yourself or I in the grave.

00:14:06--> 00:14:50

This this thought by itself literally paralyze us that we will be in there. What that will give me is just like your child, when you want your child to do something he doesn't like we discipline them right in different ways. Same thing here I am my nurse is becoming lazy. It's going back to square one I need to bring her back. So I discipline her in which way in a way of reminding her that one day you will be in this one by one, two by two, six by six meters. You're there under the ground. So number one, think of how short life is and we just started talking about trauma one now we are done. Number one, number two

00:14:51--> 00:14:56

and this really is helpful. If you look at Ramadan, what did we do in Ramadan.

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

We literally deprived our

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

For many of the lawful things, we didn't eat and drink for 16 hours average, and food and drink is hella, we're talking about halal food within drink water. We didn't eat anything, right? We didn't drink coffee, tea, that time of the fasting. Why is that? And what's the result of this on my relationship of Allah, when I deprive myself from the extras, I discipline myself,

00:15:29--> 00:16:26

I discipline myself myself, the eye becomes more, excuse me more discipline, meaning, it will be easier for me to tell myself to tell me do something. So what do I need to do now? Yes, absolutely fast. Don't stop it. Don't make it. The last I had the last time you fast was the day 30 of normal one. And the next time I'm going to fast again with the next year. No, we will go downhill, we will go downhill. And scholars of spirituality. They always teach us this, that getting closer to Allah. And more spiritual spiritual is like getting up or like climbing or hiking. It's difficult. It needs exertion, it needs resolve. But the more you go up, the more energy you have. And the closer you get

00:16:26--> 00:16:26

to the top.

00:16:27--> 00:17:16

So fasting, don't make it. The last time you fasted is the 30th and hamdulillah Hello brandy most of us have not all of us are aware of the six days of chawan we are here, six days of shaohua roswaal. This is a hadith of rasa Salatu Salam comso ever passed in the month of Ramadan, followed by the six days of chawan, as he or she fasted the whole year? How come 30 days of Ramadan, six days of chawan, that's total 36 days. Every good deed timesten. That's 360. That's a whole year. If the woman needs to make up the days that she didn't interest in Iran, Milan, is her choice. She wakes up at the fasting first. And then she makes the six days of chawan if she can, or makes the six days of chawan

00:17:16--> 00:17:36

and then makes the Cabo or make up later on in Sha one or later on. But you cannot combine them. I just said this because I got a lot of questions about that. You can't combine them. But you can do it Monday and Thursday. So every Monday and Thursday, your knee or your intention is to it's fasting show one, and it is on Monday.

00:17:37--> 00:18:09

Why did I come to the fasting because don't over? Don't go overboard in the mobile and things that is lawful. We moved from 16 hours of no eating, no drinking, minimum sleep and live going on and working. Do you want to continue in the same spiritual momentum? Then don't give yourself everything? Yes. And as we celebrated 100 learn we ate and we had everything. Now I'm talking about now.

00:18:11--> 00:18:59

Not fasting, but don't give yourself too much that they say a toaster of a mobile hot, you have too much of the lawful things, three, four kinds of juices. And I will eat two or three, four or five kinds, three, four or five times a day. Let's not do that. Let's get less than what is normal for us. don't deprive completely yourself less. Why is that? Because then I will have more control over my knifes. So this is number two. Number three. Again, reflect on Ramadan. What's happened in Ramadan, and what do I need to do? Let's look at the day in Ramadan. What did we do right morning. We were in a state of a bad we were fasting. Then we came in during that time. At least we have

00:19:00--> 00:19:42

prayed on time. The five we have most of us have had a little bit or listened to the Koran. And most of us have made dua, all these are acts of worship. When we came in big the fast we may do ha that's act of worship. Then we went and prayed model that's act of worship. then most of us went either to the masjid act of worship, or we prayed it at home act of worship more or and we were more generous. That's why all the fundraisings went on a bomb because people get what I'm trying to say number three, keep yourself surrounded, surrounded or immerse yourself

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

on your daily basis in spiritual environment. The environment is extremely important. The peer pressure is not only for teenagers, or for children or young people. Peer pressure is for everybody.

00:20:00--> 00:20:53

Allah subhanaw taala said the Torah Swati salatu salam. So to recap, we read it every Friday, when I took my cell phone now Alba one the cleaner with trabaho. What kind of football do not follow, do not obey la tapa felina. Elbow don't want to be with those who their hearts are hideous from the remembrance of Allah and then their matters are shattered. I need from now tell myself I need to surround myself with a spiritual company, whether physical, whether Al Hamdulillah these days is all online. Which means they remove any of the factors that will remove you away or from Allah or they will immerse you in the disobedience of Allah.

00:20:55--> 00:21:10

This is extremely important this is how we get weaker and weaker. Because the more we stay away from Allah we the way we The more we push ourselves away from Allah the weak come we are shaitaan will grab us or disobey Allah and it's gonna continue.

00:21:11--> 00:21:49

So look around you. Even if you live alone, even if you live in a remote place. Alhamdulillah there is always this the Nirmal of the internet. Make sure you listen at least daily, daily 510 20 longer better, something to remind your philos pantalla in knowledge, extremely important, extremely important. Don't stop the relationship with the Quran after Ramadan. Don't stop the relationship of learning after Ramadan. Every single day, make a schedule as you're driving to work as you're walking to work.

00:21:51--> 00:22:45

Something that will remind me of a law. The goal is to stay as we were in Ramadan, I need to act i need to act. There's actions and there is then the Favell, the grace of Allah subhanaw taala we're talking about the actions now. So even MERS yourself, immerse yourself with spiritual environment. For example, I will give you also a hadith of roswaal a sort of setup and you will know what's the influence of the environment, not people, I'm talking about the environment, or swatting Assad who said and taught us that the most beloved places to Allah, a massage and the mosques, and the most disguised, disliked by places to Allah pantalla swag markets. That's the environment. Why? Well, I

00:22:45--> 00:23:29

have to go and buy things. I need to go and get some groceries I need to go and get things I need. But why did he say this? So call it the what is the most What do we do in mosques in Ghana? Why do I go to the masjid? To remember or law to pray? The people aren't going to meet people where the mountain reminds me of on law, spiritual environment. When do we go with to the market What do we do is not because that's our intention, but the environment we will be heedless coffee, we will not be remembering our law. We will be looking at this and looking at that and immersed in things push me away, if not even make me disobey a las pantile and some of us are things like your own or they used

00:23:29--> 00:23:42

to go intentionally to the markets and just say Subhan Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allahu Akbar, and then they live. So they say Allah will not write us among those who are heedless.

00:23:43--> 00:23:46

So he will not write us among those who are heedless

00:23:47--> 00:23:52

environment. So here you go, reflect and think of this life.

00:23:53--> 00:24:04

don't over do or don't immerse or do too much halaal too much lawful things. Look at your environment.

00:24:05--> 00:24:59

Make sure and this, most of us, most of us are able we can change some of the environment I will not say everything, but at least I have control of some of my environment. I have a control of what I see in my phone, what I watch on TV, when I am alone, I have this control. So make sure that you eat right these points and ask Allah subhanaw taala and we're going to come to this very important point but make the environment around you more spiritual. More reminder, remind the environment remind you more of Allah subhanho wa Taala number four, which is the, to me is the most important one, which I hope you all have prayed for yourself in Ramadan. For this point, you ask Allah to keep

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

You steadfast along with me as I look at the Bat Allahumma

00:25:06--> 00:25:16

your Allah, I asked you steadfastness. I asked you steadfastness is not easy. It's not easy.

00:25:17--> 00:26:11

As the Sahabi came to Russia, he saw to cinema and he said, Tell me one Give me one advice. And don't give me too much one advice in this day, but don't give me too long, too many. And he said, I meant to be Latimer stop and he said, say, I believe in Allah, and stay steadfast, faster, steadfast, keep on the right path. Keep on the same path. Don't go right don't go left. Don't oscillate. A loss of the total swatting thought was the end of solitude the end of solitude he said first time come out on your woman tab America will topple Otto steady steadfast you and those who believed with you and don't over don't over don't do too much too. Don't do injustice. ask Allah and

00:26:11--> 00:26:53

you can you you know some dogs Oh did you say it in your own language? Yeah Allah just like you made me You made it easy for me to fast the whole 30 days you made it easy for me to stand up. Pray all that long nights you made it easy for me to read Quran you made it is easy for me to stay away from the disobedience your Allah state, make it easy for me afterward. What do you think Allah will do? What do you think Allah who will do? What Allah Buddha only yesterday Blackcomb? Your Lord said, asked me on Whoo, respond and are swatting salatu salam

00:26:55--> 00:27:51

and towards segnale. And he said, his realizada will ask Allah ask Allah to be that he guides you all the time. And he makes you say and do the right thing. I said the right thing. And I believe he always used to pray for himself along my journey to use rock alone me a Sydney use rock yo of law, facilitate for me his use of his things. Meaning things that that the act of worship are easy. Remembering you is easy. reading Quran is easy, staying away from disobedience is easy. At Doha, or open Allah to zocalo bana bother it had atena will have been a militant Khurana in the Canton Wahab Allah said this assault Allah Emraan that's what we need. Love to zocalo wanna bother in headaches?

00:27:51--> 00:28:44

And yo Don't let our hearts deviate. After you're guided us. Think of it in the concept of Ramadan. We were guided. The Cinderella now does occur overnight. Why don't let it happen, that we will deviate by the Wahhabi anomala don't karma and give us your loving mercy. In our hub, you're the one who gift. So ask Allah to stay steadfast, stay steadfast, I always say this to all the sisters who start wearing hijab, they start dressing this dynamic way. And this is not easy with a lot of challenges. As most of the woman knows, I always ask them say this to a lot. A long line yes and that your ally asked to stay steadfast stay on the same path that pleases you, your Allah Daiquiri

00:28:44--> 00:28:56

number five. What do I do? human beings which is we said this also in Ramadan. we human beings, by nature. By nature, we get bored.

00:28:57--> 00:29:07

I can sit for five or six or seven hour just reading. It's amazing, beautiful act of worship. But we get bored. We get bored.

00:29:08--> 00:29:14

Change, alternate between good deeds

00:29:15--> 00:29:45

and what is good deeds, good deeds in general. Let's make it very simple for ourselves. Good Deeds either I'm going to do a good deed they call it but any in my body or I'm going to do a good deed with my wealth Malli with money or I am going to good do a good deed only saying or I am going to do a good deed. I will be in my heart. So good deeds, my body, my wealth, my tongue, my heart. in general.

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

My body for example salah and also cm right in my body, but to add to it walking to visit a sick person or texting asking about a sick person. That's that

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

A good deed with my body.

00:30:04--> 00:30:08

Just think what can my body do a good deed, saving this earth

00:30:09--> 00:30:37

not wasting us using becoming a person who think of the earth as sustainable sustainability. We all talking about it these days. It's an act of worship. I always remind people, lots of sinful all the bad Slayer, do not surprised mischief in this art after Allah, rectified and beautified and we have repeatedly said this in the Quran and we all look at the pictures of the ocean What did we do?

00:30:38--> 00:31:18

So betania good deeds with your body, look at everything you do in the day and use the right media intention it becomes an act of worship. Again Salah so young walking to visit someone to help someone driving to become somebody to take them to an appointment any good deed my body can do. And if there is nothing in your life ask Allah to facilitate it for you. Ask a lot of facilitated for be part of soup kitchen, be part of volunteer to help in the masjid volunteer to go and visit the needy people the less fortunate or this betania

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

Kalia

00:31:21--> 00:31:28

with my tongue there's two things here. Stay away from this obedience of Allah This is daily

00:31:29--> 00:32:19

like making a daily schedule of things that will keep me going so I don't go downhill make sure what I say please Allah spawn tada what I say please en las pantalla it doesn't have to be Quran doesn't have to be da in general. Something remind people have a last Pantanal of his creation remind someone of the NEMA they have and to be grateful to Allah that's a good deed that's a good deed or higher will have a smooth as Swati salt or Sarah Tata say good or stay quiet cotija which means well I'm not gonna use my tongue to this obey Allah, backbiting foul language or lying or false testimony all these things. Then I have Mallya with money

00:32:20--> 00:32:41

don't stop the good deal with Ramadan. That's it. I don't make it to every place asked me for donation and I don't do any more time next year. No, my email will go down. Because spending money for the sake of Allah is an act of worship. Look at it, it's an act of worship. I am going to keep doing this $1 a day.

00:32:42--> 00:33:16

This place that place I go to the masjid anywhere I do it regularly, regularly. And remember this hadith of Rasul Allah Sato, sir, a humble family the law Duomo Hawa, incarnate, the most beloved deeds to Allah, the One that we do it constantly, even if they were little, the most beloved de to Allah, the one we do with constantly, even it was little, I can do only one Monday in the month Alhamdulillah but keep doing it

00:33:17--> 00:33:30

constantly. I can do only three days of the month Alhamdulillah fasting, I'm talking about fasting. Three days I can fast only Alhamdulillah but keep doing it. Don't do it just one month after Ramadan then you stop.

00:33:31--> 00:33:35

So good these look at everywhere. And then all

00:33:37--> 00:34:01

calvia my heart, this goes on and on and on. There is the act of worship of Allah via with Allah subhanho wa Taala and there is an act of worship commune with people. No hate, no grudges, no ill feeling towards anyone that's act of worship, even when, when it is very difficult, that you're struggling to please a lot. That's act of worship.

00:34:02--> 00:34:24

In my heart, I'm so pleased with Allah subhanaw taala with everything he gave me, doesn't mean my life is perfect. But I'm so grateful to Allah. I'm so grateful to Allah, I'm still alive. That's a brother Colby. That's a predatory law. That's about to shake off. That's the act of gratefulness. Act of being pleased with a law. That's a huge act of worship.

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

So, change it, change it, change it. One act of worship, that we should not stop, don't stop going to the masjid. That's not to be the masjid is the place you go only from one room to the other. Don't do that. Try your best. Once a day. Any of the Sala especially for those who lives close to the masjid. hamdulillah it's open handed in lack of blasphemy hamdulillah think of last year and hamdulillah we can go anytime we want. Go

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

Go, even if you cannot make it at the time of Salah go

00:35:05--> 00:35:19

take your family you make your Salah there if the masjid is open better with the Jamaat, of course. So make Masjid part of your day, make the masjid part of your day, not part of your day only in Ramadan part of your day.

00:35:20--> 00:35:48

So multiple acts of worship, alternate reading Quran, Quran was one of the cornerstone of Ramadan, let's it not to be that sit back on the shelf only when someone die. I need to continue to continue if I started memorizing continue, if I was reviewing continue, if I read continue, if I started to understand words of the Quran continue. Now remember I keep saying continue.

00:35:49--> 00:36:00

Definitely, don't be less continue and ask Allah to give you more. ask Allah subhanho wa Taala your biani to give you more.

00:36:02--> 00:36:10

One of the things which is related to the force that keeps me going also is the way I look at things. When we said look at this life,

00:36:11--> 00:36:13

we need to look at the other the other option

00:36:14--> 00:36:28

or the opposite, or higher to dunia we said Allah talked about it libelula amusement enjoyment. What is the opposite? What is what manga like? What is what does Allah have for us?

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

Mine the local hiring local, what Allah has for you is way better. What does Allah ha Jenna what is Jenna?

00:36:37--> 00:36:40

What is the paradise? That's one of the things I need to think of

00:36:41--> 00:37:29

in my daily life. Because that will bring me back close to a loss. pantalla you want to be in Jamaica for dose? You want to be in seven heavens. You want to be the neighbor of total Swati santosa you want the lowest pantalla to look at you or to you see Allah Subhana Do you want to live in no sorrow, no pain, no grudges no ill feeling. You want to be always the same age 33 don't have food comes to you don't even move and on and on and on of the name of the blessings of gender that actually we have covered this all last semester on Sundays in our test class where we covered all about Jenna and we are doing one shot law starting in few weeks where we're going to do the opposite

00:37:30--> 00:37:46

to hell fire our summer classes. One of them is about the hellfire. So remind yourself of what is waiting for me if I do that. What is waiting for me if I do that, think of an alpha.

00:37:47--> 00:37:55

Very important. And I love this by itself. A sign out of sight out of sight out

00:37:56--> 00:38:14

you know a total sweaty sight or sit out the last words he returned he autant fissara Asana Asana former Melaka to emang the last words before he died I think he saw a toss it out. That's what he said.

00:38:15--> 00:38:20

prayer, prayer prayer. And what's your hand process?

00:38:22--> 00:38:22

A shout out

00:38:24--> 00:38:25

Don't let it go

00:38:26--> 00:38:27

Don't let it go

00:38:29--> 00:38:31

Don't compromise it

00:38:32--> 00:38:37

don't make it last minute thing. Don't do it very quickly.

00:38:38--> 00:39:04

Think who you were and how did you pray in Ramadan You're the same person two weeks ago you were able to do it then you can do it longer. This is this is what I will say number one longer, longer, longer, read longer. The longer you read inshallah you become more connected to it to power law.

00:39:06--> 00:39:07

These things

00:39:08--> 00:39:23

you have to try it and you feel it and then our last pantalla will make you edit to it for longer whatever you know from the hora if you know only one chapter, just one chapter three verses of the Quran that's the only thing you know, keep reading it longer.

00:39:25--> 00:39:41

And then we go for your record. Make it longer when you go for so dude, spend longer time remember on mobile, you were able to do 20 Records in the night. So Salah, Salah Sarah. Do your best on time.

00:39:42--> 00:40:00

on time, don't compromise it. Don't make it lasting. I finish everything and then I go and pray that I will pray that I go and do everything unless of course it's something absolutely necessary. So sauna timing, quality, quality. Think of salt

00:40:00--> 00:40:31

Allah, and this is one of the things helps, but you will not think of Salah as a gift as a gift. You're giving it to almost pantalla it's not a gift, it's an obligation, but I'm just trying for us to think you're giving it to Allah. What a gift I am giving. Look at also human beings, right? When we give somebody a gift, what do we normally do? We spend time we choose it, we wrap it. So these days, we all don't take our time. And look, which is the best what they love. We want them to be happy or sending a gift. You want them happy.

00:40:33--> 00:40:46

This is a law, my creator and you and I'm standing in front of him doing something he asked me to do as an obligation. And I will be the it will be the first thing I'm going to be asked about what quality

00:40:47--> 00:41:17

what kind, what did I do? How long it take. It took me time yourself. Time yourself. And again, I'm not talking about when they're when you're really squeezed in time of necessity. I'm talking about in general, when you come home and you had dinner done. Why do we do two minutes? Why do we do lecture only five minutes if we do it. Of course our Eman will go lower. Asana, Asana, Asana

00:41:18--> 00:41:21

and think of Ramadan.

00:41:22--> 00:41:30

20 euro card, a true card. We all did extras in the night, keep doing it. Even to only after I show to

00:41:31--> 00:42:02

you did your Ayesha hamdulillah you did your son Alhamdulillah. Two more extras. Because you want to keep going. What do you have do ha with with asking Allah pantalla with the sincerity Allah says in our hearts, he will pull us even more. And he will make things easy. So extra sun at Aloha, the two or four or six or eight in the morning after sunrise to which is the solder or the charity of my body and yours?

00:42:03--> 00:42:11

Do you have a break at work? People usually go and take a coffee break to take us on a break just to target

00:42:13--> 00:42:14

and we can do it at home.

00:42:15--> 00:42:52

For those who doesn't work on the weekend. Do it. So now my point insula after Milan, I'm going to ask a loss pantalla to make it easy for me to do the following. I want you to be helped me please, that I pray five times a day on time your law, better quality or be longer remind me Help me to do this. And not only the obligations your law lets me not to be miser in dunya when we want things for life, we always want to extras only one kind of clothes only one kind of food Don't we all say that there are

00:42:53--> 00:43:47

this and that that old. The Autobots Allah only only obligation say this to yourself only obligation. Why not extras? Why not before and after? Before the obligation after the obligation of Maha Witter evening. My point is, I don't want to give you too much then it gets overwhelmed, but definitely do extras. The extras that will keep me strong, the extras will keep me strong gurobi I mean, I will end up with giving you just points 12345 to the law, by His grace, Allah will keep us going and will keep us a stronger your obey me. Now. We all have to remember one thing Alhamdulillah we are dealing with a Rahmani Raheem. We are interacting with the All Merciful, the all giving our

00:43:47--> 00:44:06

owner of mercy, the benevolent Allah so how he will respond when he when I look inside your law, please. Well, I want to be as good as I wasn't normal. How he will respond. He will let me go No, subpoena. So number one, renew your intention have intention every act

00:44:08--> 00:45:00

to learn yourself this even you are eating Bismillah that's an actor. You're near I am drinking. It's an act of worship. Keep my body healthy. And I'm going to say Bismillah digney ethic renew your intention. ask Allah to help you a bag the tool is Tiana Yakubu You we worship the way you're gonna stay and we turn to you for help. ask Allah always keep me going Billy Let me go. Don't let me disappear. Don't let Satan overtake me. Don't let me go back to where I was staying Billa three, as I said Salah on time. Salah sola, sola, sola because it is why I'm stressing on this because this is the connection with Allah. Our Salah is a sinner. Asana is the conductor

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

Three, four,

00:45:02--> 00:45:04

morning and evening cough.

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

Keep your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah.

00:45:09--> 00:45:34

You're driving you haven't done a deal with as you're driving, keep the morning and evening as car is also a protection. So his ministry finds Arizona shaitan is a protection from shavon. Again, as I said, make sure don't make frosting the last time you fasted is aroma one, do fast. this coming Thursday, three days of the month, six days of chawan whatever you can do.

00:45:36--> 00:45:53

Make sure you read Quran daily as you do the normal one, even one page, even one verse, but make sure there is Quran in your life daily. Daily once you start lagging lacking things will go down Quran

00:45:55--> 00:46:15

pmla even total cat after you finish your Asia Don't go. Remember shatta will remind me of everything else I'm so tired, I don't have any more energy just to recap, two minutes, but keep going. Keep going the whole idea what we need to do and number one is to keep the momentum to keep the schedule.

00:46:17--> 00:46:23

Choose the times of dwa that unlock keep you going and strong.

00:46:24--> 00:46:30

After Salah when you hear the other end, if you're fasting before you break your fast

00:46:31--> 00:47:06

and the last 1/3 of the night, if the time of rain, all these good the times that are swallowed salt or sand taught us where our heart will be granted use it to ask Allah to stay strong. Because I cannot do it. You cannot do it alone. We can't or I'm alone is a different we all say this. This was Ramadan. Ramadan, the blessing and you all in sha Allah have listened to the 30 days reminders. We talked to you about the names of Ramadan. That's why we were able to do it. But that doesn't mean we cannot but only Allah who make it easy. Allah will make it easy.

00:47:07--> 00:47:11

ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bring you closer to

00:47:13--> 00:47:40

bring you closer to him, you know where Allah subhanaw taala said to say you know Musa was turned out to clean up see, Allah said to save the Moosa Astana to clean up, see, I have chose you, or made you for me, Panama. That's a mimosa. So what do I want? I want the last pantalla to look at me from all these billions, right? And says she's sincere, she wants to get close to me. He wants to get close to me. I'm gonna bring them

00:47:41--> 00:48:23

ask Allah to bring you closer to him. Ask him even if you're doing nothing, but you're censoring you're asking Subhan Allah, charity, daily charity is amazing. Our Southern adultery or horrible charity, extinguish the anger of Allah, daily, daily and again, money. We talked about charity a lot during Ramadan, whether it's money, whether it is in a word, whether it is an action that you help someone, whether you make somebody happy, whether you remove and harm from the pathway, any kind of charity, you can do, do it.

00:48:25--> 00:48:28

Coming to a point that I did not mentioned it yet.

00:48:29--> 00:49:00

Our manners has to continue the way we would in normal manners General, with Muslims and non Muslims. generosity. Number one was the month of generosity not only in money, but we were also more we wanted to please a lot more. Keep it going in your manners. In manners, you'll forgive someone, you pardon someone you give more than what you normally do. You smile, you've you you.

00:49:03--> 00:49:51

Don't pay attention to the details what people say and does just ignore it. All these are good manners. Be patient with people like you want people to be patient with you. So look at your manners, and choose one, if not many, but one that I'm going to improve. As I said it, and I'm going to repeat it again. The environment, the environment when I am alone, and the company, the company, now 100 Blimey, at least for us in the United States, things are going back to almost normal 100 of lack of planning. Now we are meeting people handler we are attending functions Alhamdulillah but don't let this drag you away from Allah, choose the company. Choose the company, people other than

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

You don't need them. You we are undo we will regret it. If we don't do that,

Choose the company, the company that push you away from Allah stay away from them, they will drag you with them. And as you all probably know, and you've seen a

00:51:01--> 00:51:52

disobedience to Allah is very easy, and sweet, and beautiful. And everybody does it. obedience to Allah is hard. It's challenging. It's against what I want. It's against to most what people are doing. I need people who will remind me of this who will help me to do this, who will make things easy for me as our Swati salatu salam taught us hoffa telogen lebrun makara Jenna surrounded by things we don't like.
