One of the names of Ramadan which is really interesting, it's called the month of Islam.
So when we hear the month of Islam we right away think of our religion there being a Muslim, which part of the meaning of the name is related to that simply because our roswaal a site or ceram taught us munia Islam Allah hums, Islam was built on five things that we declare there is no god worthy of worship but Allah then roswaal A salatu salam is His Messenger we perform so now we fast Ramadan phases occur and then we go to Hajj if we can. So these are the five pillars of Islam. So yes, Ramadan is the month of Islam. We all those of us who are working when I'm sure many of you have been notified, I have been noticed as Muslims and fasting and people are greeting you. Oh, this is
Ramadan. This is the month of Ramadan. I had neighbors have said this to me, some my co workers, nurses in the hospital Alhamdulillah. So it's one of the symbols of Islam. And one of the characters in me that tells people I am a Muslim is when I'm fasting Ramadan, and that's beautiful by itself. But there is another meaning of Islam in general, related also to the month of fasting. Islam the second meaning of it is submission to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah pantalla said it's in Surah to Nisa woman as a new dean and women, escuela Maharaja who lillahi wa Mohsen, who is better religion than the one who submits, words have meaning his direction, his goal, submitted to
the will of Allah and with excellence. Whatever amelita Ibrahima Hanif and followed the path of Satan Ibrahim, what does that tell me? What is this has to do with Ramadan? If you look at the essence of fasting, we are basically not stop eating and drinking in a certain time, and we all have the calendar and we all have Oh what time exactly how much is left and then we we start eating also in a specific time, like 740 I cannot do 739 I can do 741 What is that? Why not? Especially these days? Why not? Everything is possible? No. Because that what Allah told me and I'm submitting to His will, although Why? What is the difference? It's only one minute. But that's how it is, is
submitting to the wind, often lost find a hole with Allah is the one of Islam. What does that teaches me in my day, as I was able and Allah facilitate for me to submit to the act of fasting, your Allah make me help me make Ramadan
training camp for me to submit to the will of Allah in every single day, inside Ramadan, outside the Ramadan. When he gives me things I like and I love I submit to His world by being thankful when I am tested in things. I am not, or I'm sad about them, I submit to His will. And I say it came from Allah, it is higher when Allah ordered me to do things that it is difficult, it's hard. I don't know why I need to do this. I need to submit to His Well, it's the month of Islam 30 days, I submitted to his world too fast in that starting that minute ending in that minute. If I can do this for 30 days, why I cannot submit to Him in other things in my daily life. And that's basically the water Ramadan.
One of the lessons that we learned from Ramadan is to submit to the will of Allah and being the true Muslim in a pure and true submission to Him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala teach us this helped us this year. Be me
