And um maybe I'm going to move a little bit on this journey.

00:05:28--> 00:06:18

A little bit from the topic of CRM I'm going to move to in general in general you read a lot will be coming to us from what Allah wants from me and you is ease is ease so always there is in everything I see in this Deen This is very important for us to remember there is ease in it and I will just talk more about this is you read a lot who become will use Allah once always easy for you. When I read you become universal and it does not want hardship for us. So always when I as I am practicing my religion as a Muslim, when I see or feel or I think that there this is something difficult. This is something hard. I can't understand. Always remember this verse, you read the law who become a

00:06:18--> 00:06:26

USA, Allah loves for you is what are you ready to become laws and he does not want hardship for you.

00:06:27--> 00:06:27

Okay,

00:06:28--> 00:07:15

now Ramadan is coming. Let's learn a little bit things. Maybe it's simple, and maybe we have never heard it before. Part of the ears of Allah subhanho wa Taala part of the sooner of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he makes things easier for us. Things comes gradual. What does that mean? If you go for fasting Subhan Allah fasting the month of Ramadan didn't come this way first, meaning Allah did not made fasting Ramadan right away, immediately you go and fast the hormones, no. In fact, the obligation for fasting the month of Ramadan came in the second year of withdrawal. So you had all the time of factor.

00:07:16--> 00:07:55

There was no fasting Ramadan, the whole month, there are sorry salt was migrated to Medina and in the second year. So what did they do before there was no fasting? No, it came gradual. And that teaches me something that's when I need to get a goal. And especially if the goal is something I am not used to have not done it before, we need to take it gradually and this will apply to Ramadan also. Why? So I will reach my goal and I will not get tired and then stop doing what I am doing. As rasool Allah salatu salam

00:07:56--> 00:07:59

said in a hadith the meaning of

00:08:00--> 00:08:35

don't be too hard on yourself. And then you will be like that person too hard too harsh too quick, too high goals without real planning and gradual going through it and then you will end up as he said, that is a lot Oh Sarah, the that person who was on amount on an animal and then love off on Africa. What are our lucapa He did not reach the goal. And he did not even keep the animal because he kept whooping whooping whooping on the animal and animal died.

00:08:36--> 00:08:48

What is this? Look at how Ramadan how the fasting of the month of Ramadan came to us Muslims. It did not come right away. It's come in graduation. The first

00:08:50--> 00:08:56

obligation of fasting was actually one day, which is actually the day of Ashura.

00:08:57--> 00:09:55

It was an obligation before Ramadan became an obligation. Imam Al Bukhari in his book narrated that Saraswati salatu salam said Karna are slightly aside to a sinner Karna Yamato be Siani Ashura, he used to he used to order and command the fasting of the day of Ashura. Then when Ramadan came in, he said, Whosoever want to faster Ashura that day or cannot, it's up to you. So the first step in fasting for us as Muslim came as one day, which is actually the the month of Ashura. At the day of Ashura, another Hadith jab rudeness similar in Muslim he said Roswaal is AutoSum Can I Maura be CME Ashura for Mr. Fuller Ramadan? Let me up Mona Willemijn, Hannah Willa muta had not in the can I know

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

Busia Ashura originally, he used to command us and ordered

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

was too fast won the day of Ashura, which is the 10 days, the 10th day of the first month of the lunar year.

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

And not only he used the command as we heard finale he used to really encourage us and want us to do with where to how to handle anger, and he was particular about us, fasting the day of Ashura for Lama fully Ramadan when Ramadan became obligation. Now you see the graduation the graduality, gradual right lemma for Ramadan, whomsoever wants to fast or not, what do I learn from this? When I come to Ramadan, and this is extremely important for us, why not Ramadan came, comes in. And here I am, here we are, we have not had fasted, we have not had done two or three hours of taraweeh every single day for the whole year. We need to take it gradually in this way, because what we normally

00:11:02--> 00:11:54

see, and this is sometimes unfortunate, is that the first day of Ramadan, we have so much energy, and we fast, and we are up and where it's Koran. And then gradually, as the month goes by, and of course not everybody but we start to see our him, our resolve becomes weaker and weaker. Why because we started very fast, and we started very strong, but we were not ready for this strength. And that is why are Swati salatu salam used to fast majority of Shabbat a lot of the time in Shabbat and why getting ready graduality take things gradual and prepare is extremely important in the month in Islam and is specifically for the month of Ramadan. I still have about 11 days, so I'm not there

00:11:54--> 00:12:45

yet. It's there, it's coming I can see it, but it's not there yet. I need from now to start getting myself gradually. But So on day one Ramadan comes in some of the things became habit. And for for the fasting if you have not fasted yet, it is not recommended to start fasting after the middle of Shabbat in the last two weeks of Shabbat unless it comes in a habit but in general, the things that we need to start from now get ready for his relationship with the Quran and the relationship with a sunnah because Ramadan is not only fasting, the obligation is the fasting is like you're baking a cake to make a cake you need the cake, but that's just the cake. But if I want to make a good cake,

00:12:45--> 00:13:04

tasty cake and tasty cake looks beautiful, I need to do frosting inside, I may cover it I may put fruits chocolate, the idea, aroma, avant fasting is the base, but many other things on the top and the top and the top. I need to get ready for that.

00:13:06--> 00:14:03

establish the relationship with the Quran, establish a stronger, firmer, more loving, loving relationship with the cider and generosity and giving and we'll cover this all next week in sha Allah when we started coming in what other things we do in Ramadan beside the fasting. So graduality Ramadan came in first was Ashura. Then when Ramadan came in, that fasting of Ramadan was not an obligation yet, it's actually in the verse I recited to you, it came in as an option. Third stage which is the verse 185 is for men Shahidan call chakra failure song whosoever witnessed the month and the obligation and the fasting is an obligation on him or her then they have to graduality

00:14:03--> 00:14:59

thinks things are graduate. Why? Because shuttle and Milan shuttle Ramadan is as the days goes by, actually the virtues and the act of worship and Nevada increase. And the end, the last 10 days is the finale. And in them is the finale night. So what I need to do is I need to build up on my acts of worship, on my relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala on my relationship with the Quran, on my relationship with the Salah, I build it up, I don't start very high. And then I get tired, and I cannot continue on the contrary, I need to gradually build up, build up, build up, build up so when the last 10 days of Ramadan comes in, I'm ready I've trained spiritually

00:15:00--> 00:15:48

Relationship love feeding I all, so make sure all of you, and all of us from your OB, I mean, I am number one is besides I'm not talking about the fasting, I'm talking beside the fasting, I need to start gradually so day one of Ramadan, let's say I've never read Quran before, I am going to discipline myself and I'm gonna read, let's say, three pages, four pages, 10 pages, but then as the Ramadan goes in, I will increase. The sooner however, is actually you read one juzo a day because our soiree salatu sera and say even a jubilee used to come to him and review it Adara sir oran he was review that he used to review the Quran with Satan every once in every month, except the last

00:15:48--> 00:16:36

year when he died alayhi salatu salam it was actually twice so graduality This is one of the first thing as we are welcoming it I need from now I have about 11 Maybe 12 days left for Ramadan. He lets me go up. Let me go up so normally now I do my salah I do with the humbler, but I do it you know, whenever I can. Now I am going to gradually I'll say okay, every day I'm going to be at least to choose to solder obligatory that I am going to perfect them I'm going to work on the quality of them. I am going to make them longer. I'm going to read Quran longer, as much as I know one I don't do sooner, maybe it is time now to start doing maybe one or two sooner gradually but increase so

00:16:36--> 00:17:01

when Rama like put a goal somewhere Ramadan comes in again, a lot no second or third of April. I have already established a base and the base is way better than my base today. So and then I will go up and up and up and up again. So that's number one. I needed all of us to remember is to build up, build up number two,

00:17:03--> 00:17:24

the month of Ramadan is called Ramadan. Right and Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned this month in the Quran by the name at the I resorted to Chateau Rama Ivana levy on Zillow fee Hill Quran, who then leanest Oba enacting that hotel for shallow Ramadan, who called it Ramadan.

00:17:25--> 00:17:27

And why it's called Ramadan.

00:17:29--> 00:18:23

Actually, the Arabs before Islam, the months the lunar months, when they came in, there is different opinion about who gave them these names. The idea when the time came in, and they start giving the months, the lunar months names, they gave them the names according to the season that year. Because as you all know, the lunar month smooths. So it's like not all the time Ramadan is in the summer. And not all the time Ramadan in the winter, actually it goes as we all know goes back every year about 10 to 11 days. So when the month of Ramadan was that time, when the lunar months it's the Arabs decided to give it to name them, Chateau Ramadan, which is the ninth month of the year, the

00:18:23--> 00:18:58

ninth month of the year, that time Ramadan came that month, came the ninth month of the lunar year came in the time of summer and not only summer, but the extreme heat it was that month in extreme heat, I need you to remember this because this is remembering this is this is related to what I need to feel and what is the goal and what should I come out from Ramadan with. So it was called this

00:18:59--> 00:19:54

it was called this because it was the time of naming the months was the nine month was actually in the summer with extreme heat, but has to be a name for the name has to have our relationship because every act of worship that Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered us to do. There is the external name but the name has something to do with the goal of the with the goal of the worship, for example, and Hajj. Okay to hedge Allah subhanho wa Taala called it in the Quran. El Hijo asuran baluarte Hajin is an appointed well known months, but what is the word Hajj mean in the Arabic language? We all when I asked you is what is heard you say okay, that when we go to Makkah in that time of the year, it's

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

true, but that that's Islamically but linguistically, Hajj is all

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

cost is the goal is the aim.

00:20:04--> 00:20:33

So when I am going to Hajj inshallah we'll discuss this when Allah subhanaw taala when make us live to the time of Hajj May Allah invite everybody to be me is a cost. So when I'm going, I need to remind myself there is a goal. I'm not going for vacation. I'm not going just to see the car but I am going there my cost my intention, my goal, my focus is to please Allah to be his guest to respond to His invitation. So what is our mobile?

00:20:35--> 00:20:44

The word the Ramadan comes from Ramadan, the origin of it is Ramadan. And Ramadan is extreme heat.

00:20:46--> 00:20:48

Ramadan, extreme heat.

00:20:49--> 00:20:52

So what is extreme heat has to do spiritually?

00:20:54--> 00:21:46

What is the goal of Ramadan, as I shared with you just now, in the verse La La Quinta taco, so you may attain taqwa and or stop or Allah conscious. And what is Allah conscious mean? Allah conscious mean, I'm going to do everything he's pleased with and I am going to be staying away from everything he doesn't want. I'll show her Ramadan. If I do it, the way Allah subhanho wa Taala went to me as much as I can. Focused on him. Focus on what I am doing, and not only holding food and drink and marital relationship in that timeframe, or rather, holding every cent making Allah is my focus, doing every extra I can. Then the end is taqwa. It will burn my sins, it will remove some of the

00:21:46--> 00:22:18

Noble is like the sun burns. They said, Ramadan, when we do it properly. This is what it was. This is why it's extremely important for us from now, to change the way we look at Ramadan. We all celebrate it, we all are very happy. I mean, some of us even counting the days. There's a special feeling internally and we're looking at it and you're Olara Milan is gonna come and we'd have a lot of blimey Muslim still still well you can still

00:22:19--> 00:23:13

glorify Ramadan, know the virtues assess art Ramadan Hamdulillah. But what I need to do is from now, put goals for myself, for me when I leave Ramadan, that I achieved those goals and I'm going to take them with me. And one of the goals of Ramadan coming from its name or Ramadan. Extreme heat that burns is actually it will burn my sins, meaning my fasting, the proper fasting, my relationship with Allah, my salah, my PM, my night salah, my charity, my conduct, all of these cannot be multiplied not I'm not going to do the casual, neither quality, not quantity. I'm not just going to do total cost after Russia. I'm going to do my taraweeh and I'm going to do longer and my relationship with

00:23:13--> 00:23:33

the Quran I am building and building so how is my sins will be burned? Because Allah said it in a personality. You the humanists say yeah, for me salata purifying in a hurry was all a family in the Hassan RT, you Huebner say yeah, Allah said this at the end of solitude. It says to rasool Allah salatu salam.

00:23:34--> 00:23:51

Fatima salata Baraka in a hurry was all of a mentally perform Salah at the two ends of the day and part of the night for our Kamisato Rafi na he was hola Femina. Late. Why? In al Hassan RT Wehrli good deeds you inhibin SC at remove,

00:23:52--> 00:24:41

expiate by deeds. So here I am, gradually I am building from now and the day of Ramadan day one, day two, day three, day four, I'm building on building on building more good deeds, and building a better relationship with Allah and building better relationship with the Quran. And but I'm building more better relationship even with the people around me. These are all good deeds, let alone Salah and of course the fasting and the family These are all good deeds in Al Hassan RT with humans say good deeds. Remove bad deeds or Ramadan and this only in Ramadan. Subhan Allah Ramadan has this special uniqueness in it that good deeds is very easy and we all know the Hadith, right in Adana or

00:24:41--> 00:24:44

Jaya or Ramadan, right, put your head above bulletin.

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

That Saraswati salatu salam said in many narration in Imam Malik in Muslim in Buhari, he said his idea or Ramadan in Imam Malik narration that Allah Ramadan when the Ramadan comes or enter what happens for Jihad

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

bulletin

00:25:02--> 00:25:05

the doors of China are open the gates of Gennaro open come on.

00:25:06--> 00:25:23

Well only catch Ababa now and the doors of hellfire closed will actually it's like absolutely locked wasafi datashare thing and the devil's shaytaan are chained.

00:25:24--> 00:26:00

This is a metaphor, meaning if shaitaan is chained has no power over me. In general, good deeds is much easier. obeying Allah subhanaw taala is much easy, it's easier. I need to keep reminding myself of this as I am preparing, getting ready for Ramadan that don't think it's going to be too hard at all. Don't say it's too long. Oh time change. Now it's longer. Don't say that. Oh, it's in the middle of the exams. Oh, I am working Oh, why didn't I take vacation? Don't say any of these.

00:26:01--> 00:26:52

On the contrary, remember this hadith. When the gates of gender open means what is not physically open? It means the people who will it's going to be welcoming people to come and what is the number one reason after believing in Allah to entertain as good deeds is good deeds. So Hiranya for Jihad Ababa, Jenna meaning good deeds are easier. Good deeds in Ramadan in general is easier. So graduality and the graduality will be quicker because doing good deeds are easier. Well, holy crud Ababa now, then the gates of Johanna, the gates of the Hellfire are closed or locked, meaning doing bad deeds are harder. And one of the reasons is because Shayateen is chained. So here I am. Second.

00:26:53--> 00:27:44

So three things so far for me, I have about 11 or 12 days, it's not too late, never too late. And Allah Subhana Allah wants ease for me, and he put it in between I had to say, in between the verses of fasting, he puts that a lot once is for you. So I say to myself, never too late. I still have time. Let me prepare not only mentally that Ramadan is coming, or even now many, many of the of us preparing, you know, preparing meals, preparing food preparing, but also spiritually, I'm going to be prepared preparing myself that I am going to be day one of Ramadan. Or I will say day two of Ramadan better than day one, day 12 Better than day two, and day 22 I'll be better than the 12 and

00:27:44--> 00:27:54

two, and let alone at the odd nights, the 23rd 25th 2729 and the last night of Ramadan. Whether it's 29th or 30th.

00:27:55--> 00:28:43

The 29th I am going to be I am definitely going to be I'm going to put this as a goal. Much better, much better, if not hugely better if I can use this term than day one. And this is how the curve will be the curve of my relationship with Allah and the curve of my acts of worship will be going this way should not go that way. And sometimes we see in massage this in massage Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen your allah how grateful we are to you. The massages are open, they open maca. Amara is open Alhamdulillah Europa halloumi your Allahu Allah and I'm seeing this to everybody. Let us all don't let us not forget two years ago, how was Ramadan?

00:28:44--> 00:29:22

When there was no masajid there was no tarawih Subhan Allah there was no h bar with people Subhan Allah. But Allah is Rahim Subhana Allah has Karim generous Subhana Allah has OFF or ON or dude or for giving all loving loves to give love. And he brought us back. Let us all this is the first year after two years. Let us not forget that where we are back to normal. No social distances hamdulillah no limited numbers Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah so let's not forget this nearmap

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

Let me show khardungla as either knuckle if you are grateful, I'll give you more water in cover to another fabulous read. And if you are not, if you are ungrateful, Allah forgive us. My punishment Allah see, if you are ungrateful, my punishment will be severe. I need absolutely to be grateful to Allah in this Ramadan more than any other Ramadan simply because we tasted for two years we tasted the bitterness and the sourness of not going to the masjid

00:30:00--> 00:30:49

Have not praying in drama of not seeing each other and enjoying the sofa but from Oban I call it now which is back. So three things remember the name of Allah especially those all of us Europe be me that we will live to see Ramadan the near me that we have reached Ramadan the near me that it is open hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen then Yama the near term of me able to fast your OB I mean or even if I am not able I can Allah pantalla gave me other options to do good deeds and there is other good deeds I do want to gradual meaning going up the curve this Ramadan will go up to not go down. Absolutely it will not go down. Lala cantata on day two of Ramadan, my Taqwa better than day One day

00:30:49--> 00:30:59

10 Or day nine or 11 My Taqwa Allah conscious Allah love Allah feel is better than day one and day two and day three,

00:31:01--> 00:31:06

three that graduality need preparation from now, I still have time.

00:31:07--> 00:31:47

Increase your relationship with the Quran, build it up, improve your Salah quality and quantity and improve your relationship with the people around you. Ramadan is not only externally bad, and we're going to cover this next week is not only external Ramadan is not only not eating and drinking and not having marital relationship in this timeframe law. This is the only superficial if we look at our Mo Vaughn only this way if we look at Ramadan only this way, we will miss a lot we will miss a lot and getting to the Allah confidant will be much harder.

00:31:49--> 00:32:10

Ramadan is actually I call it a training camp at training camp in me to remove all my ill characters and bring forth and improve and nourish my good characters. With the relationship with the people around me as we call it labored

00:32:11--> 00:32:25

HOCl a battle from now gradually I'll work on my external and my internal my heart every day from today, till we get to Ramadan everyday in Ramadan, examining your heart,

00:32:27--> 00:32:33

examine your heart, and I'm not talking as a physician and I'm going to put the stethoscope and listen to the heart. No.

00:32:34--> 00:33:21

Look inside your heart. Let me look inside my heart. What will I see in my heart? With thoughts? What feelings I need everything in my heart to be pleasing to Allah pantalla that's my bad and everyday, they want better than the last day of Siobhan. Two and three and as we go on, on, on I internally, I'm a better person with people around me for giving pardoning no hatred, no jealousy, no anger. I'm Ramadan everyday and my relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada my relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala is even everyday is better.

00:33:22--> 00:33:41

Now, go don't forget the name Ramadan to burn my sins. Ramadan is is it's gonna burn my sins. Questions always come in. Why? Ramadan is called Ramadan. And we said this but why Allah chose Ramadan?

00:33:43--> 00:33:47

And this is a question the reason I am bringing this is because

00:33:48--> 00:33:56

these days because of the technology of everything we have. We're getting answers to almost everything. And we are

00:33:58--> 00:34:05

learning to ask questions. 10 years ago, nobody asked. Nobody wondered why Ramadan is called Ramadan

00:34:07--> 00:34:27

which is good to ask for sometimes there is no answers, and we need to learn to submit the will of Allah. So Allah chose Ramadan and this is what I'm getting to. Number one. And once I learn this, and comprehend this, my relationship with Allah will change. Number one, Allah Allah Allah will Hackie

00:34:28--> 00:34:43

Allah is Allah Ali will Hakeem. Allah is all knowing. And Allah has always for his wisdom, for his knowledge. By His knowledge, he chose Ramadan to make it a special month of the year.

00:34:45--> 00:34:54

Same same Allah chose certain times, certain places, certain creation of his to be special.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

Meaning Allah said this sort of hedge Allah stuffing million Malacca to Sudan

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

Amina NAS, Allah choose from among angels

00:35:05--> 00:35:47

to become messengers and from people to become messengers. He chose them. He chose Satan, the debris that's in Nigeria will deliver the Quran. Why the hikma wisdom? Allah has it, why I'm saying this, one of the changes, that's one of my goals in Ramadan will be that I as a human being, as a servant of Allah, as his creation, I need to learn to submit to the will of Allah. Not everything is why, and it doesn't make sense. And I'm not convinced. That is not how it is with Allah subhanho wa Taala Islam by itself.

00:35:48--> 00:36:17

The word Islam is to submit and to submit to earth, to submit to the will of Allah. And that is why there is things we don't know why. And we don't know how. And Allah is capable of showing it to us. But he kept it unknown. The hikma as we say, for all wisdom, one of the goals in me in Ramadan, I need to learn to submit to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:36:19--> 00:36:47

for example, I always might to live this concept I remind myself, or I asked myself this question. So why Ramadan is front why fasting is from dawn to dust. So from six, let's say this morning 537 right to 701 Why not? 702? Why not? 659 It's only one minute or three minutes earlier. If somebody's in Ramadan, or at any time fasting.

00:36:48--> 00:36:56

Anytime fasting, the mother of his let's say 701 and I eat at seven my fasting is nullified

00:36:58--> 00:37:16

what I'm trying to say, one of the core core character of the Muslim, that he or she submit to the will of Allah and that and you know why we should all submit without even a blink of an eye. Because who Allah

00:37:17--> 00:37:41

because he is Allah. And he is Al Hakim de ys, Al Ali the All Knowing so when he told me you fast from this time to this time, I submit when he told me and then I take this and I apply it on my the rest of my life. When there's things happens in my life that I cannot understand why this is happening to me.

00:37:42--> 00:38:37

I need always to remind myself, stb Rila. Submit Allah's pantalla as Allah Subhana Allah says in surah Nisa, in the chapter the woman Woman is an Adina women s LEM, wedge her hula he wahama sin with Obama letter, Ibrahima Hanifa. Who has better Diem religion than than s NEMA which hola submit to the submit his face meaning all his body and his word to Allah wa who are messing with Exodus, no arguments why it doesn't make sense. Why this? Why that. That's what Ramadan also teaches me. And that's what I need now in this 12 days to come to terrain myself, to submit to the will of Allah subhanaw taala not only in fasting, meaning I'm not going to eat I'm not going to drink in this

00:38:37--> 00:39:25

time, but also to the will of Allah because I'm reading some of your questions on the chat. I was like I'm getting so stressed out because of work and all the things which is true, all of us get this but but the more I have a relationship with Allah subhanho wa taala, the more LRB, the Karela, he thought my inner Kurobe Wehrli by the remembrance of Allah, hearts will reach serenity. And what is anxiety is when my heart is not in peace, when my heart is not at rest, when I am connected with Allah pantalla with his dica with his remembrance was submission with Doha, with asking him I will learn to submit. So gradually, gradually, I'm going to focus on graduality today, gradually from day

00:39:25--> 00:40:00

one, as I get to the 30th I am going to train myself to submit to the will of Allah and hold myself when I say why. I am not convinced I need to know the reason then I am not yet the fully Muslim, Allah subhanho wa Taala want me to be I am not yet the full Muslim. Allah subhanho wa Taala wants me to be so short on Ramadan let's go back again. Then. Allah as I said, chose the Ramadan as a month he chose angels for

00:40:00--> 00:40:55

Example signature breed, he chose the Roswaal as AutoSum from from among people, he chose messengers he also chose places Arafa he chose maca as we have discussed and not long time ago. So Allah chooses the Hickman, I am going to reinforce the idea we need to live. One of the names we need to live in Ramadan is Mullah al Hakim, the name of Allah al Hakim, always, always whatever happens to me, I always have to say number one, before I say why, why me? I say Allah there is a wisdom please show me your Allah show me their wisdom. Show me their wisdom Malala the Allahu when we start having this personal relationship with Allah, I know you are wise. I know you let you are allowing me to go

00:40:55--> 00:41:10

through this difficulty. There's a commercial me. This is too hard for me Allah I can do it. Tell me for I'm commenting on the comments I just said about anxiety. And she what Allah subhanho wa Taala wouldn't do Subhana now

00:41:11--> 00:41:43

graduality the core, the the lat land, the mark of Ramadan is fasting. As fasting, why Allah chose why Allah said so trained, Allah said so he wanted me and the beauty of fasting. There's so many beauty of fasting also will cover it in detail at the level of fasting next week in sha Allah. But what I'm trying to say is Kulu Amelie me Adam Allah Illa song for holy one, Zb.

00:41:44--> 00:41:46

Let me translate that's a hadith of

00:41:47--> 00:42:18

cuyama Livni Adam law Illa. So, for holy one exhibit all the deeds that the son of Adam do is for him meaning for his benefit for his dunya benefit and akhira benefit Illa Psalm in Assam, except fasting, for holy it is for me, and I rewarded by it. What the scholars teaches us about this, every good deed we do, every good deed we do is timestamp

00:42:19--> 00:42:29

Minja it has an IT fellow Asheville untidy Allah said this is also an add the cattle whomsoever do any good deed, it's time 10

00:42:31--> 00:43:18

Except the fasting, when this hadith quartzite this hadith the saying of of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and came to us the Torah Swati sought to serve his wording that all the deeds of the human being is for him is a song for holy one, Zb and why? And then he said yet to Katama, who was shot all the who they are yet to kutamo Sharabi Warszawa truly, what do we do in fasting, we don't eat, we don't drink and no matter till relationship, why? For Allah, this is where I want to reach. If I can do this for Allah, and it is not easy. Fasting and not drinking and not eating alive goes on for us who lives in the West, life doesn't change, continue. Right. And no matter tell relationship for Allah

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

subhanaw taala in this 12 or 14 hours, it depends where you live. If I can do this for 30 days, I can do much more outside that that's why I called it's a training camp. If I can for 14 hours, not eat or drink and no marital relationship, I can stay away from sin gradually, gradually.

00:43:44--> 00:43:45

Gradually

00:43:47--> 00:44:38

Utakata Amahoro Serravalle whenever you feel and this is for everybody. I see a lot of comments here. You know, but the difficulty, remember this hadith or So Marie, when Zeba I want you to live Ramadan with this hadith, Allah Allah, Allah is going to make you much it's going to make it much easier on you and you you see it on the screen, a very good action is rewarded by 10 times up to 700 times except fasting which is for me, and I reward it or I do yeah, I reward it. When I feel tired when I feel exhausted, emotionally or physically or both. When I feel I am not to me I'm not giving him what he should subpoena or I'm not giving Ramadan what it should be remember this hadith or

00:44:38--> 00:44:58

Somali? Don't belittle that anything little good deed you're doing a normal bond donorship on do this to you or your knifes do this to you. And what's pushed me to do more is when I remember I'm doing it for Allah, all of us Subhan Allah when we when we

00:45:01--> 00:45:06

love someone. When we love someone, we do things for them

00:45:08--> 00:45:13

all with all our heart, we do our best because we love them.

00:45:14--> 00:45:20

Whether it's our children, our spouses, our parents we do this. But But

00:45:21--> 00:46:07

when we think of the love, when we think of them, we do and we do it way better than normal. Now if I am thinking of Allah subhanaw taala or so moody fasting is for me and I'm doing it for him Subhana Allah I to this hadith, literally send yourself reminder every day on your phone, write it in a place where you see it. A so Molly, fasting is for me and who is me? So last Hannah who dad, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada an eye and there is no reason for me leaving my food, leaving my drink, leaving the relationship with all the hardship we go through for 30 days except for him.

00:46:08--> 00:46:35

Except for him, what will he reward and that's why there is no accounted reward. Because fasting is the same as a patient is both inter interchangeable interchangeable in Nemo for Cybertronian agile Hungary hisab those who practice patient they will be rewarded and accounted for we don't know how much same idea

00:46:36--> 00:46:43

00:47:40--> 00:47:50

comes in the goals becomes much easier. Why? Because the doors of Gennaro open the doors of Jahannam are closed and Shayateen are

00:47:52--> 00:48:05

chained, so the good deeds become much easier. And Allah subhanaw taala would help in I always say this to myself and I want you all to remember this when I really want to obey Allah and he seemed me

Absolutely because Allah subhanaw taala what makes Allah so happy? Subhana laahu Asha do Farhaan be Toba haidakhan Nothing will make Allah more happy than when he see you and me returning to him in Toba in repentance, that's the Hadith or Swati Santosa that's when Allah subhanaw taala see a servant of his you on me and anyone going back to him in repentance, meaning turning back to Allah, I want to do what pleases Allah, I want to get close to he is more happy Subhana and he doesn't need me and he doesn't need
