There is about him Subhana about this life about the hereafter. But when he say yeah, we're Latina am and this is a specific direct communication between him Subhana to me, and to you. And I need to know what is he telling me? What does he want to tell me? Yeah, you're living? What is it your law? Here I am. I'm ready. Tell me. Could you Barry camassia. Number one, fasting became an obligation. Now. Fasting is an obligation. Okay? Come on equity rather Latino public, as it has been

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

obligation on the people before you. Okay. What is the code

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

La La Quinta tekun So you may attain taqwa,

00:05:06--> 00:05:31

everybody. So my goal and your goal at the end of Ramadan, and this is how I am going to welcome Ramadan with this goal is to cuando la la quinta taco. So you may gain tacos I bought his taco. What is taco? Taco is translated in many ways. I personally love this taco is Allah conscious.

00:05:33--> 00:05:50

Taqwa is Allah conscious. Now, me being Allah conscious, you are Allah conscious, we are all a lot conscious. It doesn't mean it doesn't mean a lot conscious. When I am in the masjid only.

00:05:51--> 00:06:15

It doesn't mean I am Allah conscious. When I am fasting only. It doesn't mean I am macdaddy Allah cautious when I started my Sia, my fasting or what I ended my cin, my fasting or when I am in tarawih or when I am reading Quran, no learning the content to own it's general

00:06:16--> 00:06:26

throughout the whole day, and the night as I am going to sleep, what keep should stay in my mind

00:06:27--> 00:07:20

and keep reminding myself don't remind anybody. I need to be remembered first. And I cannot remind you unless I remind myself first and my reminder and your reminder will not bring fruit unless I practice it. As as one of the righteous people says, I am reactive for Bellarmine knowledge to call for actions. Otherwise action will leave meaning if I only learned if I only learned and I don't practice it and you don't practice it. You know what even that knowledge will leave because started bringing fruit. So Allah contact upon Taqwa what is taqwa? What is Taqwa? And we really need to define it in a way practical. So I know am I at this moment with ducky at that moment, McDuck. Allah

00:07:20--> 00:07:35

conscious means we means I am all the time. Aware that Allah is with me, listening to me, seeing me and will ask me

00:07:37--> 00:07:54

all the time. Allah is with me. And that's very good because I need this. I need this strength. If Allah is with me, and Allah has with you, how strong I am, who can make me weaker.

00:07:55--> 00:08:45

Keep reminding myself, Allah is with me. Killer in nama ARB, Cid, as as a Musa said, when he was running, he and the people who just believed in him, run away from Pharaoh. And the people who believed would say, No Musa looked back as Sophia round behind. And they and they they said, all in Allah mudra raccoon, that's it. They are going to catch us, they are just behind us. And he immediately say killer, nay, look at that moment, moment of fear, moment of test and trial. And immediately because he lived with it with Allah is with me. He says Kela nae in the mayor of BCIT in my Lord is with me is going to guide me

00:08:46--> 00:09:36

la la Contacta con throughout the day. And we need now from now, three, four days keep reminding myself I need to bring a reminder for myself, even I send reminder for myself through my phone is what in namah ARB. Number one Allah has with me, the fact that Allah is with me Subhana specifically, meaning I will not go astray, he will help me he will guide me, but at the same time he's looking at me, I need to keep reminding myself. So the way I drink, the way I break my fast, the way I stand up for Salah, the way I deal with other people, the way I respond to people, that's all Allah is watching a lot man, but Allah is also seeing me. Right? So Allah is with me. I like

00:09:36--> 00:09:42

seeing me a lot is hearing me and Allah will ask me

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

then I am a ducky. Firefly this. Now you're going to tell me this is very difficult. I'm going to say this is very hard. But at least I start with a point. And if I cannot get it all, that doesn't mean I'm going to leave it all. At least I start

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

I start with myself from the morning to the evening, that it's aroma line. It was It is supposed to burn all my sins, as we said last week, and I am fasting not because everybody else is fasting. Not because it's an obligation, but that that's the superficial. The deeper one is La La Quinta taco. So I will be the hub, the servant that when Allah Look at me, or he is looking at me and looking at you, he's so pleased. What is the core? How did people that the scholars and the righteous people define it? And I'm going to give you some definitions and then we will apply it practically right.

00:10:43--> 00:10:47

Total Koebner. Habib, he said a taco and Tammy, we know Rila

00:10:48--> 00:11:07

and Tamil I'm sorry and gamle we thought Attila Allah nori mean Allah to reduce our Allah, taqwa Taka is you act, you act by the obedience of Allah. And I'll give some practical example. I act you act by the

00:11:08--> 00:11:37

obedience of Allah, Allah nor him in Allah, based upon what he said, not what I like and you like and what everybody else is doing. And why I'm doing it. Total Judo of Allah. I only the only reason I'm doing it for no other reason. But for Allah to reward me. Well and turtuk Marcia, Allah, and you stay away from the disobedience of Allah, Allah nor him in a law based upon what he said.

00:11:38--> 00:12:02

Mahabharata a cappella, you're afraid of his punishment? Let's apply this in my daily life in Ramadan, right? I act by the obedience according what he told me to do, what did he tell me to do? Fast? Meaning externally, I'm not going to eat from morning from dusk to dawn.

00:12:03--> 00:12:55

And who said that? And I know even Allah, it's, it's in the Quran and the Sunnah. And why? Why? That's the sincerity, that's the class for no other reason. For no other reason, other than he will reward me. So when I and you in front of him, and his opening the book, the book of sorrow of Muhammad, Abdullah of a fat if anyone, right, he would open the book, and he will see and he knows Subhana that's on that day, April 2, April 3, I and you and us we all fasted for only one reason why I need my reward your OB rewards me Allah and that is why our Swati Sato Sir, in this famous Hadith reward reporting by say Naboo hora, and then many

Wife expiated and another version, man sama what Ramadan wahama Ramadan, you fasted and you prayed or you spend the night of Ramadan in Salah TM standing meaning in prayer. So taco again, we're going to go back Toccoa I act by the obedience of Allah,

00:14:17--> 00:14:29

based upon what he told me, and I only want the reward from Allah subhana wa Taala only no other reason. So when someone come and irritate me

00:14:30--> 00:14:52

say something that bothers me for no reason. immediately comes to me Lala cantata Hoon, you're fasting. That's why Roswaal risotto Sara, said he that kindness only only had gone if someone is fasting. Right. And someone that said Bahasa Tomahawk had if someone come and irritated you

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

got angry and said things that is curse you basically polyalkylene Nissan, let him say

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

He or she, I am fasting. What is that? That's the obedience of Allah based upon what he taught me how to Hisar to a sinner and why? Because I want my reward your Allah, when I meet you, you RMB I want my reward. I want my remote because I was a MacDuffie in that moment

00:15:24--> 00:15:55

when I stand up in tarawih insula whether in the house whether in the Masjid Al hamdu, Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Alhamdulillah yorubaland me, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen This is the first Ramadan after two years of tour Ramadan where things are back to normal, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Tao we have open massages are all open, there is no social distance makeable at home this open, Amara is open, Medina is open oxide is open, all the massages are open.

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

How grateful I am going to be

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

how grateful I am to Allah subhanaw taala how grateful I am to Allah subhanaw taala least I am going to be is I am going to act as a monk doubly grateful to Allah Spanta. We talked about this last week for gratefulness. But today we're going to focus on this. So here I am. The moment of breaking my fast the goal Lala contact taco, prepare wholeheartedly work on my taco. And if I can do it for 30 days on V is Mila by his help, I will be able to do it after all. So here I am coming to break my first is a breaking my fast errata Atilla is it something pleasing to Allah Now he told me actually what did the other Rasul Allah saw Sarah told me is like, it is highly recommended to break your

00:16:51--> 00:17:39

fast quickly. Don't delay it. Don't delay it. So I picked up the date. Or if they don't have a date, I got the water or whatever Allah subhanaw taala allowed me Sunday is on the date. But could you be I am in a place or working and I don't have it doesn't matter. So I'm breaking my fast. Why? Because he told me to that's the thought. Now how I am breaking the fast. I need to remember this. What is the most pleasing way of breaking my fast to please Allah subhanaw taala the way of a soiree salatu salam did dates if I have it, right? And if I don't on the war, gentle, and then I make the Doha I make this application, especially when you're drinking the water, what are you going to say right

00:17:39--> 00:18:30

there have a woman of Tality law with a Buddha Inshallah, the thirst has been extinguished, right, and the veins are wet because the water is coming. And the edge of the reward has been recorded. So I say this. See, it's a simple things we don't need to look after our major thing I can't be these people who are Mottaki, where am I from them? No, no, the SEC is simple. Simple things are going to be doing it on daily basis and Ramadan are gonna take you through that. So when I am breaking my fast is that a TA? Is that an act of obedience? Yes, I'll have to rely upon me. Now the way I do it has to be also an act of obedience. So I am going to do with with a dua gentle, I feel it. One why

00:18:30--> 00:19:13

I'm doing this because that's what he told me a salatu salam and actually the timing Allah told me for Kulu washer ah boo ha ha there como Hyper V automata, heightened S word immunol. Fudge, tomahto. Muslim LA, that's the person so autoboca Each, each tool, you know that we talked about it last time that like the dark from the white line, basically, these days at Hamdulillah. We have it all in our phones. And then I think mostly and don't eat and drink till the night sunset. So I did it based on what Allah subhanaw taala taught me and what our Swati sought or self taught me three, the most important thing we really need to remind, remind ourselves of this, because sometimes what happens

00:19:15--> 00:19:29

we do things for casual. And not only casual. Why do I'm sorry, we do it as a casual, but the reason we do it as casual because it became a habit. I don't look at it as an act of worship, Deep.

00:19:30--> 00:19:59

Deep is an act of worship, the most beloved, I just finished the most beloved actor Allah spontan on daily basis Imagine if we remember this, I just did an act of worship. That is for Allah only a solitary one RGB. Fasting is for me and I rewarded by it. So this is how it is and tabooed Allah and dabbled a lot and

00:20:01--> 00:20:36

Tabitha alotta, Atilla and I normally mean a lot already with our law, you do an act of worship based on the light from Allah Al Quran and Sunnah and you are looking for the reward. And the opposite. This is half Taqwa. This is only half Taqwa I can to be a Mottaki. And again, we're going to speak practically it's only three, four days left. I can't be a tepee and I can to be I want lol a contractor on day 30. And the moment I break my fast and eat, the next thing I'm going to do, I'm going to do this obedience to Allah.

00:20:37--> 00:20:53

What whether in my tongue, whether in my ear, whether in my eyes, I start looking at this and that, or I start listening to this and that, or I start eating this and that that is not pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala, then then that's 50% Taco only in the morning.

00:20:55--> 00:21:44

And then the goal is not been achieved is like somebody, they want to lose weight, and they told them, You need to be, let's say, on this amount of calorie, and you have to do that much of exercise to reach your goal. And guess what? I do half and half, and my goal will be half. And when I'm in front of Allah, I'm getting only 50%. So do based on looking for do the act of worship, looking based on what Allah told me, and we're looking for my reward, and I stay away from the disobedience of Allah based upon what he told me not what people say what he told me. And I'm looking for my reward. I say this all the time to my beautiful sisters who get their menstruation during Ramadan.

00:21:45--> 00:21:57

And the sisters feel really sad and I feel it and I know they're feeding but my answer to everybody my answer to everybody, why are you fasting?

00:21:58--> 00:22:05

The first thing when the woman asked me I was like, like Sister Eva why do we Why can't I fast I really love fasting.

00:22:06--> 00:22:54

And I my answer is why do you want to fast? Because it's something Allah told me to do. It's not because everybody is fasting it's easier for sure when everybody else is fasting, but I am fasting could he told me to shorter Ramadan Allah the only life here Quran, who then leanness you're re enacting that for anyone who financially them and we know who they are for financial aid me come Shafilea soon, whomsoever live or see the their money, the moon of the month, legend fast. So I am doing it to please Allah. Then I come and I say to the sister, and this is for all the sisters listening to me. What does he want me to do? When the woman is during that time of the of the month?

00:22:54--> 00:23:43

Not too fast? Then I am motivated. Because I stayed away from something he told me not to do, although it is an act of worship. But he told me not to fast then Samia, no Aparna I hear and obey. And this is based upon our Soiree. Salatu Salam Murthy said what he told us and I am looking for my reward. This is extremely important for the sisters, when I don't fast in Ramadan, I will be rewarded the same way that person who fasted why because these both are acts of worship. And these are both pleasing to Allah, the person who's fasting and break the fast then this he or she has fulfilled the order of Allah and the woman who is didn't fast because of the menstruation and I'm

00:23:43--> 00:24:00

specific specifically here about menstruation because it's really sometimes gets very hard on the woman. They will get the reward for being commerce pantalla Lala, contact her own. Keep saying this to yourself. wholeheartedly, wholeheartedly. I'm waiting for Ramadan. Because you're

00:24:02--> 00:24:07

this is the month that is much easier for me to obey you.

00:24:08--> 00:24:15

Much easier for me to get close to you. Much easier for me to make my scale heavier

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

to make my scale heavier, but the way is me how much I am going to get is me

00:24:25--> 00:24:59

is me. Let us not be a wrestler hamdulillah let's let's maybe I will move a little bit and I will go back to Taco there is a three levels of fasting. And we all need to remember this. There is the fasting of the commoners everybody and that person should he or stay away from food, drink and marital relationship from this time to this time. That's everybody. That's the commoners this fasting. I don't eat either.

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

Don't drink this actually and no marital relationship from this time to this time that actually will fulfill the requirements of the obligation. quotevalet camassia, CIN became obligation, that's the requirement. But That's level one

00:25:18--> 00:25:20

that I need level two and level three.

00:25:21--> 00:25:26

So then there is a second one song well how us is the first thing of a special?

00:25:27--> 00:25:56

So the first thing of the special, who wants to be special? Well, actually the answer the question should be who doesn't want to be special? We all in this life. All human beings want to be unique, want to be recognized? Want to be special? I want to be different than other people in a good way, in the positive way. So the second Solmar Whoa, us the fasting of this special? Who are they

00:25:57--> 00:26:02

definitely fulfilled. The first one. Definitely fulfilled the first one.

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

Then the second Psalm and cool mahadi Mila

00:26:10--> 00:26:16

fasting from anything, that is disobedient Allah.

00:26:17--> 00:26:30

Fasting from everything that is disobedient from Allah, what is fasting I stay away I hold. So any this will be the answer of Allah, which is part of the taqwa we just said it.

00:26:31--> 00:27:21

I am going to be staying away from it. Meaning I am not looking. I'm not using my eyes, and I am fasting in anything that is not pleasing to Allah. I'm not gonna look at any haram. While somebody will say well, especially for us live in the West, it's all around us. I would say lower your gaze. Don't look at it. Unless you you see it first time and then lower your gaze. I'm not going to use my eyes in anything that will lead to disobedience of Allah. I am not going to use my ears in anything. That is disobedient to Allah. I am not going to listen to anything. I want my fasting to be special. Hold heartedly. I'm looking forward to Ramadan because the I am going to be different. This Ramadan,

00:27:21--> 00:27:23

I am going to be level two.

00:27:24--> 00:27:25

I am going to be of a special

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

so when I come to Allah subhanho wa Taala er ebme With my fasting and his opening of my book, I am going to be among the special not the ordinary and the common. The communists.

00:27:40--> 00:27:51

My eyes will not look at her or see haram or lead haram or post haram anything that is unlawful. My ears will not listen

00:27:52--> 00:27:58

to anything that is unlawful immediately I was like this is Ramadan. Two, three.

00:27:59--> 00:28:01

I am not going to say

00:28:03--> 00:28:24

say anything that is not pleasing to Allah. I am not going to say anything that is displeasing to Allah subhana wa Tada. This is one of the hardest one. That's why he said the Roswaal Esau to sit down when someone come and curse you say bad words to hold a say in the saw and say I am fantastic.

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

My hands are not right. We're not type. We're not post anything. Anything that is displeasing to Allah.

00:28:37--> 00:28:56

I want to be special. I want this Ramadan to be different. I want my fasting to be special. It's not going to be like everybody else. It will need work. It will need work. It will need me to do things. I have not done it before. On maybe I have done it a long time ago.

00:28:57--> 00:29:13

So my ears, my eyes, my tongue not say anything, my hands, my legs where I'm going, especially after football. Now we eat when I'm going to go with my with my feet.

00:29:15--> 00:29:28

level two, level three is the highest May Allah pantalla give us a moment of it. That's called the fasting of the special of the special. And that's actually the fasting of the heart, the fasting of the heart.

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

What does the first of the heart mean? Subhan Allah, when the heart fast your OB one day, one day Allah when the heart fast from anything, but him Subhana This is not my words, actually. Absolutely not my words.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

This is the scholars of the heart scholars who who work hard to get close to Allah when my heart went out to be occupied with the

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

Daily matter that we are occupied with, in other times outside Ramadan in Ramadan, my heart will be occupied with him only Subhana the one and only. So three levels. Let us all everyone who's listening, let us not accept for 30 days, our fasting will be level one. Just fast, don't eat, don't drink your marital relationship. Once I break my fast everything changes. That's the commoners and nobody wants to be a commoner we all wants to be special, let alone special in the eyes of Allah span dad. And number two,

00:30:42--> 00:30:49

the special and three Maybe Allah Spanner by his generosity will give us number three

00:30:51--> 00:30:57

00:32:32--> 00:33:19

and he will not find me not eating because I'm busy still working. Then I'm not lucky at this moment. Again, I'm talking about moments not in general LW but in that moment, because he was looking to see me basically eating he didn't find me eating that's not pleasing to her. At that moment. I am not. It's as simple things I'm not talking about major sins. I'm talking about general because this is daily life. Although her time time for low where does he want me standing in sauna that stuck up and he doesn't want to me or when he looks and he sees me on my phone texting, nothing urgent. Or I'm scrolling through my social media. It's solid time, then. That's not the definition

00:33:19--> 00:33:33

of taekwon Yejide takahito Amarok fragile time for those who live close to the masjid. Especially for the man. And it's Ramadan. Let's, let's say you you you work and you can't go everyday in the weekend.

00:33:35--> 00:33:47

What does he want me to be? Absolutely insane I standing let alone in the masjid when he looks at me how he will see what I am in the masjid praying Fajr and knots and lie at the Kahuna hug

00:33:48--> 00:33:53

and he will not you don't want him to see me and you may Allah protect us all sleeping.

00:33:54--> 00:33:58

Sleep sleeping. That's not the code. That's not my lock on the taco.

00:33:59--> 00:34:28

Yeah, did you cry through a mark? And you'll always have this is why it's a lock conscious because it the moment you are in or I am and the thought in my hand in my head should be where does he want me to be? What action I do that pleases Him not what I want and what I like and what everybody else is doing. That's not it. It has to be him and him only think through him. speak through him.

00:34:29--> 00:34:59

Don't speak through him. Don't look through him. Let's bring back Allah to our life. Not the casual way. But to bring Allah subhanho wa Taala the way he deserves of Hannah, be fit him. Be fit him. You know when we love someone, we always think of them. When we love when we have the feeling of love. We always think of that person we love

00:35:01--> 00:35:15

If we have the true love of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he's always in with us, with me in me thinking of him, the Lakota taco, it may get hard.

00:35:16--> 00:36:03

And we all see the second week of Ramadan, get tired, especially if you are not used to fasting. Again, life doesn't change in majority of us living in the West, life doesn't change. You still work, you still do the same thing. You probably may be on call in the night and then for Mother's Day at the children, they have to take care of them. Maybe they have a newborn, all these things, right. Remind yourself that will help you in the path of taco and Ramadan. A yam and MA do that. That's what he said Subhana a Muda. It's few days counted days. How many of us every year and remember this? That's what Ramadan starts with like wow, there's a 30 days. And next thing is what

00:36:04--> 00:36:38

is the last 10 days. Next thing is what night of aid And subhanAllah we're praying aid as if it just came a left. Everyone say that. So when you feel tired, when you feel exhausted, when you feel the Himba the Resolve is getting lower, get up and say it's only a few days a year Mamadou that few days. Don't let shape on. Let us not let Shavon lure us change us throughout this 30 days

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

and keep living a Yemen model that few days or so only one exhibit. Fasting is for me and I will reward Allah

00:36:50--> 00:37:01

another thing in Ramadan this is a true Ramadan and we talked about it last week in general shadow Ramadan what Allah the opposite of here Quran

00:37:02--> 00:37:20

is the month of the Quran there's so many names of Ramadan by the way, one of the names chakra aura shadow Quran, the month of the Quran. Now as I am picking up my Quran, and that's an act of worship, no doubt about it. I need to be Lala contact upon

00:37:22--> 00:37:57

my picking up the Quran reading the Quran flipping the page, la la quinta home. So you may attain Taqwa. Or is that let us all everyone? Let us all not have. The goal of reading Quran is when will I finish? When will I finish? When will I finish my hotma? Let us not be that is not the one that's literally Allah is watching me seeing me looking at his words. And my goal is just what I'm going to finish.

00:37:58--> 00:38:02

Think of it this way. Allah has exhausted from analogies of Hana.

00:38:03--> 00:38:20

You wrote a book, a letter, a text, right? And you gave it to someone and they are reading and you're watching. And it's a long letter. Next thing after two or three minutes pay for this as Rajat and you say really?

00:38:21--> 00:38:27

You didn't even spend five minutes what how you will feel? How will I feel?

00:38:29--> 00:39:24

What I wrote is not very important. They're not focused on what I said. They focused on just the reading. Let us not have this relationship with the Quran in Ramadan. It is not about how many times I finished the Quran. It is not about how many pages I read today. It's about glorifying the words of Allah. It's his words. That's why we always have to go back and connect everything with him. Subhana It is His words is the Quran. It's have a lightning Mateen it's the strong rope with Allah subhanaw taala it's known it's Vahagn it's light, it's an evidence more been clear. And you go through the whole names of the Quran when you pick it up Lala Contacta home so you may attend the

00:39:24--> 00:39:59

call. So you are Allah conscious. You are doing an act of worship based upon what he told me and I need my reward. I want your My reward and I know your reward me a lot. So I can pick it up casual and just read. There's always this question comes up, is it finishing it or no the meaning finishing it at least one is the sooner for Soiree. Santosa. Does what he did was say Nigel green except the last year before he passed away. A Serato snap he read it twice. He read it twice reviewed it for saying that you brief or twice

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

Can I do both?

00:40:02--> 00:40:03

Can I read the Quran?

00:40:05--> 00:40:18

Can I read the Quran and finish one part? And maybe from that part, I take few verses, and I spend more time to understand what Allah is telling me. I'll struggle of course. But

00:40:19--> 00:40:31

there is nothing comes easy in this life. No, we say it's always in the United States. There is no free lunch in this country. Nobody does things for free. You have to pay for it. You have to work for it. You have to earn it.

00:40:32--> 00:40:37

Let alone the pleasure of Allah. The gender of Allah.

00:40:39--> 00:41:22

And the gender of Allah is very expensive. Allah Inessa Lata La Jolla. Allah insalata Legion, what Allah has very expensive. What Allah has is Jenna. Jenna and Allah remind us twice in the Quran am Hasebe to enter todo lo Jana. Do you think you will enter Jun? While I'm Miami La La Nina Jahad oming where Allah ma Sabri Do you think you will go to Jana? And Allah will not see those meaning those who struggle for him and act with patient with insurance. Do you think meaning to enter gender

00:41:24--> 00:41:31

and the gender of Allah subhanaw taala let alone genetically for those the highest level, let alone single loss pantalla. It's not easy

00:41:32--> 00:42:21

to things I need jihad. Strive struggled with work hard work and patient and endurance and perseverance. Perseverance, keep going. So when you pick up the Quran, Lala Contacta con we're not going to forget this goal. We will not forget this goal. The goal is to Allah cantata Han I think Taqwa Allah, Allah helped me I've come to Doha. But let's work on the Quran. First, I'll pick it up. My goal is taqwa. Well, I don't understand the a word from the Arabic read it with dako read it with the struggle that you are struggling and the goal is Allah Who reward you. And then maybe you finish the villa. And then you pick one verse and try to understand the meaning. Lala comfortable, I'm not

00:42:21--> 00:42:27

reading it. So I tell people I finished around five or six times I've finished my Quran. That's not the goal. That's not that.

00:42:29--> 00:42:35

I'm not reading it just because it's Ramadan. Of course I'm going to read Quran Alhamdulillah but that's not Lai la quinta De

00:42:36--> 00:43:18

La La Quinta. tahune I am seeing Allah subhanho wa Taala seeing me pick, reading His words and looking for my reward the Allah and then he sees my struggle in it. He sees how difficult it is for me Allah to read, especially for those who don't read the RRB May Allah reward you or let alone those who doesn't understand the struggling he sees it. Do you think he will let it go? Subhana No, Lala contacto third, which is an integral part of Ramadan integral part of Ramadan Subhan Allah is duha is supplication.

00:43:19--> 00:44:04

supplication, do Ha, asking Allah and in case maybe you some of you may know that I have noticed that if you look at the verses of the Quran, the verses of fasting in Surah Al Baqarah. From the first one I just shared with you, you already know Amazon quotevalet camassia till the end of the verses talking about sia in between them in between them. The famous verse about supplication when they sell okay Bardiani near curry but G buta with a die either the heart for yesterday bully, what do you mean OB la la mujer Shodo if they ask you about Me, I am near close

00:44:05--> 00:44:12

or Gee Buddha with a day that I respond to the one to the caller, who calls me

00:44:13--> 00:44:31

probably yesterday Bulli let them responded, meaning let them do what I'm telling them while you're aminu. Let them believe in me not only believe external, believe and believe in everything he is going to give me long your shadow so they make it guided they will be guided.

00:44:33--> 00:44:45

Doha Lala Contacta con I'ma Mottaki in my dua. What does that mean? I know Allah is Hearing me. I have no doubt. I know he's listening.

00:44:46--> 00:44:48

I know he will respond

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

in this affirmation in this year Thane this certainty that our last panel Ouattara is listening and he

00:45:00--> 00:45:22

He will respond to me how he will respond. That's a different story. Because Allah subhanaw taala when he respond to my and your DUA doesn't mean necessary, he will give me everything I want. Or he will give it to me exactly the way I asked. No, because sometimes what may be I am asking is not the best for me. And he's the only one who knows that.

00:45:23--> 00:45:51

But don't you ever ask ALLAH and you are in doubt that he will not give it to you. Although Allah went to morphine University job as a Roswaal risotto syrup said, Ask Allah and you are sure, internally, you're so certain that he will respond. Either he will give you exactly the same as you asked, either he will remove harm from your life or he will leave it the reward till the day of judgment

00:45:52--> 00:45:53

and the hereafter.

00:45:55--> 00:46:48

So the reason I'm making dua, Allah Contacta con because that star do is an act of worship at dua who will a bad supplication is an is the act of worship. So I'm asking Allah Santana, even if I don't need anything on who doesn't need, who doesn't not need, but I am first of all, lifting my arms, crying to him, because that's something act of worship. And he told me, the verse I just shared it with you, and I know he will reward me for the act of asking not to reward me giving me what I want. That's also he will do but mainly he will reward me look at the generosity of ALLAH SubhanA Subhana and how much we don't know that, who is his of Hannah? The fact I made him and I

00:46:48--> 00:46:54

raised my hand, asking him he will reward me for raising my hand at dua who labored.

00:46:55--> 00:46:58

The fourth thing these are the highlights of Ramadan,

00:46:59--> 00:47:01

in acts of worship, fourth thing is Salah.

00:47:02--> 00:47:46

Let us not have the casual Salah as the hadith of our soiree salatu salam, the famous Hadith for mercy if he salata that sahabi, who did not do is set out correctly or he didn't do it properly. He said, certainly for necroptosis Ali, or just only El jefe was only for necroptosis only go back and pray. He didn't pray. What did he do? He just did it very quickly. What did he do if you read the hadith is a very famous Hadith. What did he do quickly? Because he went How do I how do we know he did it quickly? Because when he came back third time, said Yara, sola, this is what I know. I don't know any way any way else of praying. He said to him, and he explained that when you say Allahu

00:47:46--> 00:48:05

Akbar, take your time stand, put your hands and when you read, think of the reading. I mean, he didn't say this, but the point he was explaining to pay it off to an end, when you reach a point in every action of Salah of serenity. Take your time. This is a private moment with Allah.

00:48:06--> 00:48:53

Lala contattare own I know Allah has seen me so when I say Allahu Akbar, and actually will lead to ascend to excellence. I know he's seeing, I know he's listening to me, and he is hearing me and I know you will never let me down and he will reward me Illa Allah Contacta con in your act of of Salah from we need to start from today. But let alone throughout Ramadan. We should not be the casual. The imam is reading in taraweeh when we are sitting checking our phone, we just finished a tarot card. Don't do that. The Allah contact upon is difficult, let alone in the middle of taraweeh people pick up the phone and see who called let's just shut off the phone during taraweeh because my

00:48:53--> 00:49:41

goal is not to see how many followers and who loves me or not. Or who's calling me or not. My goal is that a contractor so you must reach the taqwa you may reach Allah conscious you may have your OB I mean all of us the the level of those special fasting let alone the special of this special May Allah subhanahu wa Tada reward May Allah subhanaw taala give us life to live to Rama Jambi me May Allah Spano Tala helper CRO be NACA Allah militia in Quantic help us to not only fast not only read Quran not only makes Allah not only make dua not only be better human beings, but all of them European every act that pleases you help us to do it in the best quality or so we may reach at the

00:49:41--> 00:49:46

end. What we all want to do is to reach the level of maturity in your BME.

00:49:47--> 00:49:51

We promised you that this akmola had everything everyone who is

00:49:53--> 00:50:00

joining us I see people are joining us from all over the world drobilka hammelmann, and almost every states here in the United States. I promised

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

I will take some of the questions we are very limited time left but let's see what Allah subhanaw taala will allow us how do I soften my heart before Ramadan? I feel like I don't have enough for sure in my prayer. I'm unable to offer sooner for our to prayer Subhan Allah may Allah Yeah, Shane May Allah subhanho wa Taala that's a beautiful question. The question itself has a lot of hair in it. Don't disappear from yourselves. My dear sisters and brothers, that question tells me this person, this Muslim loves Allah and wants to get close to Allah because why we are asking, I don't have a short

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

other personal essay what time did I prayed?

00:50:43--> 00:50:53

This is what it is how do I soften my heart? So the question actually has an answer is the reason I am not having short is because I don't

00:50:54--> 00:51:20

my heart is hard. How do I soften my heart? That's another whole lecture inshallah. But you can go back in our website and look at our Teskey or on the YouTube and look at our Teskey How do I the types of the hearts and the process of purification? It's on our YouTube gender Institute, YouTube channel, but in general, in general, stand long in Salah

00:51:21--> 00:51:39

it's actually one of the one of the righteous saints said that if our Jetta Cassata albick If you feel your heart is hard for authorial to stand longer and so even if you don't know what you are saying, meaning is the same verse I'm repeating is fine in Nampula Salah actually open the Quran read from authorial Tia

00:51:40--> 00:51:55

right and if you are not yet for author to see and know what we are already fasting, that's good. And then it says you know what, why touch the head of an orphan, go and find an orphan and talk to them.

00:51:56--> 00:52:06

But mainly mainly long Salah alone. Inter alia is beautiful but when we are in JAMA spewer for the feeling is beyond. But

00:52:07--> 00:52:15

if I still after all this, with a terrarium, still sawed My heart is not as soft as I am, is actually

00:52:16--> 00:52:21

do longer Sala alone. And

00:52:22--> 00:52:35

what soften the heart is also a lot of STR for. A lot of it's tougher ask Allah for forgiveness. I don't know what I did. We don't know what we did. Allah only knows and a lot of sada Allah rasool Allah, His salatu salam

00:52:38--> 00:53:25

my father in law is non Muslim, May Allah guide everybody what I be sinful if I cook for him in the daytime? No, on the contrary, No. The non Muslims who who needs to fast fasting is an obligation upon a Muslim illogical value. And a Muslim, the Muslim person who's accepted Islam and the local adult, and the alcohol available adult I'm sorry, our current state of mind and then mocking the person who is not a traveler and add to it, the woman who is not in a state of menstruation or bleeding after delivery. Your father in law is absolutely non Muslim. On the contrary, look at it this way, when he knows you're fasting, and how difficult it is to cook. Right? He knows you're

00:53:25--> 00:54:08

fasting, but you are serving him. You're serving him that maybe is Neela and with a lot of your DUA and you're fasting may Allah subhanaw taala guide guide don't gotta get Latin Nakamura Rahmatullah don't disappear from the Mercy of Allah, you will never know many of the non Muslims became Muslims by interaction with the Muslims even these day and age Subhan Allah I mean, my first Ramadan Allah may Allah make it easy for us to open my first Ramadan and I am a bit frustrated why? I've been trying to ask my doctor if it is safe for me to fast I have still not received an answer. What should I do if I don't hear back in time? Hold them? Maybe he doesn't know call a Muslim physician.

00:54:09--> 00:54:52

I don't know where are you? But ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide you number one, I always when things doesn't get easy, I always turn to Allah your OB you know, should I fast or not because you don't want to fast if it's going to harm you. And that's not pleasing to Allah Lala contractor and you you should fast if you have no no, seek bad sequence or harm happens to you because of the fasting. Try to find a Muslim position Google ask ALLAH ask a lot don't be frustrated. Frustration is from safeline frustation from safeline absolutely turn to Allah in your Salah. Your A B you know I want to fast this is a three days and four days please let them answer me. Latte or not. Oh latte

00:54:52--> 00:54:59

Asuna Rohilla don't despair from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and may Allah Subhana Allah make it easy for everybody.

00:55:00--> 00:55:30

Last punct Allah is Ever Merciful Subhana most compassionate Subhana most generous Subhana He is pleased with anyone who makes DUA and ask for his help. Alhamdulillah absolutely, absolutely Allah. Remember this I'm just giving you the meaning of the Hadith. Allah subhanho wa Taala either let Musa Salli ala AlDub if he is not asked, he gets unhappy or angry Subhana in the way they fit him, when we don't ask, ask him, ask him Subhana

00:55:32--> 00:56:12

My question is, sometimes I feel guilty in asking Allah for things that I want to Dounia things and want to happen in me, because it might appear I am not contented with what I have. Now, why is that? This is another mean of shaitan unless what you are asking which I doubt it, but unless what we are asking is not pleasing to Allah. So somebody wants children why not? Of course who's gonna give me children except Allah subhanaw taala and and Manuel by non Xena to hire to dunya wealth and children is the beauty of the slide. That's what Allah said and sort of calf. But that doesn't mean I'm not gonna ask for children, no Alhamdulillah and are not only children, righteous children are more than

00:56:12--> 00:57:05

100 laquer of Branimir Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala loves it, when he hears us asking him as long as what we are asking is not displeasing to Him. So don't let say fun. Do this. Having said that, don't focus in your DUA only on the junior matter. That's something we all have to remember meaning I need to ask I need to have the balance of dunya and alpha the hereafter and this life so I need to ask focus in your DUA Yama give me Jana your Allah give me a hostile hottie May Allah give me a good and yeah Allah make my grave a piece of Jana yo Allah SurveySavvy Allah makes you taking me accountable make it easy your Allah give me genetic Fritos your Allah don't deprive me from not

00:57:05--> 00:57:37

seeing you all these of the journey of the dunya Allah improve my manners y'all Allah bring me closer to this all of Africa but at the same time yeah like if somebody is not Maggie Allah give me a righteous spouse. If you are married and your spouse is not you want your spice to improve your Allah improve my spice my spouse your Allah make him or her righteous people. So there is nothing wrong with asking of dunya matter as long as we don't forget the will take one more because it's one minutes

00:57:40--> 00:58:14

okay, I wanted to do a little with a group but it didn't tour a dot Allah Masha file. That's how we say Allah decree and whatever Allah decree happens, I'm sad, but it was the result of doing is to Hara Al Hamdulillah, then why your son? He didn't want you to go for a good reason.
