Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim masala who say they know Mohammed

00:00:05--> 00:00:51

He will send them 100 in there as salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. First of all, I want to congratulate all of you inshallah for this blessed month that we've entered in, which is the month of Ramadan. This is one of the greatest blessings that Allah Subhana Allah has bestowed on this community. Each year, we're able to renew our faith, to restore our relationship if it's been severed with the great book of Allah subhana wa, tada, the Koran, Shahada, Rama bond, Allah Do you own zero fear or and this is the month in which the Quran was revealed to our beloved Prophet sallallahu sallam. So this is really a great time, my advice to myself and to all of you is to seize

00:00:52--> 00:01:40

the day, to seize the moments that we have. It's short, one of the verses in the Quran says I am and I do that these are limited days and is actually uses a plural in Arabic, which is called the plural of porosity. So it's their short days, they go quickly. And we have to make the best of it. So my advice to myself and all of you is go on a fast not just of your physical appetites, but also what you put into your mind. Go on a fast from social media, go on a fast from television, if you're watching television, go on a fast from all those things that are distracting us from really one of the most important things that we have in our life, which is to focus on where we are and where

00:01:40--> 00:02:21

we're going. And so this is about spiritual development. So my advice to all of you is to really to take the benefit of this month to its utmost attempt at least one reading of the Quran. Don't let this month go by without going through the entire Quran. Hopefully you can also hear it recited in teta we, if you're able to, and maybe give some portion of the night, if you're able to. These are all really really important. The doors of mercy are open. And Allah subhana wa tada is waiting for us to come back to him. Return to him 100 as a tuna college, we're blessed. This is

00:02:23--> 00:03:00

the month in which we have a graduating class this year, class of 2019 Alhamdulillah. It's a really excellent class. And we've seen some extraordinary students that have come out of this class. We're a small college, but we're able to have some real quality in the people that have come. We have two students that got into good medical schools. So we've had our first pre med students that finished the program, which is a great blessing for us. We also have this month our first law student graduating.

00:03:02--> 00:03:48

Reema Latif, so she she has finished law school. So we're starting to see the fruits of what you've helped us start and what we hope will continue to grow. This is our 10th anniversary as a tuna. We founded it with Dr. Hatton imams aide, and myself in 2009. So we're in our 10th anniversary. And we're hoping that this is really going to be a blessing. Ramadan for us, the more help you give us, the more we're able to do. So I really hope that I know. Most of you, if not all of you have have many, many responsibilities and you're generous people that are donating to a lot of different organizations. The Muslims are in desperate need in many places. But I hope that you can find it in

00:03:48--> 00:04:28

yourself to continue to support us and we appreciate greatly that support. So I'm looking forward in sha Allah to seeing some of you. If you come visit us at the school, you're all welcome. And I hope inshallah you all have an incredibly blessed Ramadan. I hope it's the best Ramadan that you've ever had. And may Allah subhana wa tada accept all of your prayers, your fasting your standing and may He bless your families and may He fill your homes with lights with blessings with gifts, and may you inshallah see many more Rama bands to come to zakum lock pattern was set on YT como de la hora.
