inshallah every day after the prayer, we will have a short session, we won't let it go over 1015 minutes inshallah apologies. And in the sessions

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

we will be covering a short reflection on Ramadan. And everyday just a little reflection, a little reflection so we can take that reflection pack with us and implement for the next 24 hours in charleville Aziz and

00:00:45--> 00:01:22

I was actually reading a very beautiful book before longer written by Dr. McLennan who is a living scholar in Saudia and he's written a book in English translated as 30 lessons for those who fast so I've been taking a lot from there and you know, I've thought that maybe we can cover that book, and in one lesson each day, inshallah I didn't go over it. So the first thing that we'll be covering today inshallah, the first point of reflection, that we can have our own blog, is that when we look at the Ramadan of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the very first simple thing that we learned is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would increase in a god. Mm hmm. He

00:01:22--> 00:01:56

mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ramadan, if compared to the other months in the year, you found that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from Vaughn has more Eva in there. So for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would generally really put on, but in Ramadan, now the Prophet of Allah while he was sitting would increase his recitation of the Quran. Until we have the narration the very famous narration that jabril Ali Salam would come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam everyone would live and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would revise with Islam, whatever had been revealed until that point, and the final year before the Prophet sallallahu

00:01:56--> 00:02:27

alayhi wa sallam passed away. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam completed his revision not once, but how many times twice. And this was a sign for the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was going to pass away because it was out of habit. And there were very few things that were out of habit for the purpose of the law while he was sort of so the purpose of the law while he was sort of increased his recitation of the Quran, we also see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the month of Ramadan, he increased his the 100 Salah he increased the late night prayer and the purpose of the lohani was set on you know, we see after a show Salah we don't

00:02:27--> 00:02:58

just hit the bed, we stay awake and we pray art but are we prevented are we entitled are different, but from what aspect they will consider that as a part of family that we are standing during the hours of the night in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And one thing very beautiful. According to the Hanafi school of thought, you can easily combine your intentions. So while you're praying that prayer, you can easily combine the intention to say I'm also praying to Allah. So from one gathering, you can walk away with not only one reward, but how many rewards to rewards very easily. And we know the nights are short, and for many of us to wake up for the 100 Salah again may be a

00:02:58--> 00:03:33

little difficult. So we should make our intention when we're praying artha with prayer, at least for the last eight rockets, or the first last year targets better because that's the word that should be at record and the last eight records that we pray followed by them with their sauce that seals that off, and then we can go ahead and get some rest. Allah subhanho wa Taala says regarding the companions that women are late allows we just says the reward of those who pray that Allah Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, Amina layli for the hedges v nephila, tallac arsa, yerba sakara buka autonoma Buddha, and then from the portion of the net lemina Leyland from the portion of the

00:03:33--> 00:04:15

night at the head jet be he nafi ratanda prey tahajjud Salafi for the sake of Allah as a voluntary act, and if you do this, it's very possible your Lord on the day of judgment will resurrect you and the Praiseworthy station mahkamah the Praiseworthy station and the scholars they say that macabre Mahmoud is a reserved place in Jannah. That that's a very high rank. It's kind of like the VIP VIP VIP station. So the 100 slot is how we get there. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and when beautiful and very, very beautiful tradition. Shut off for a minute the AMA lane, where is the who is still number one in us. Very beautiful tradition. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:15--> 00:04:26

said the honor of the believer is standing in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala during the night. I remember our teacher once said to us that the night he said in order to it's very interesting, he said that soniclear don't even know

00:04:27--> 00:04:44

that who said the night was made to sleep in the night was made to stand in front of Allah subhana wa Tada. So the honor of the believers when he stands in Fiamma lane. And the second thing, the second part of the Hadith is very powerful as well. Where is the who is definitely one in us. And the honor of the believer is that he never asked from anyone other than

00:04:45--> 00:05:00

Allah. He doesn't ask for anyone. He never lets anyone feel that he needs them. He won't let that feel he won't anyone feel that? Because that's honor. That's how he maintains his honor. Very beautiful tradition. At the same time, we see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam also increased

00:05:00--> 00:05:32

his, his his differ and the purpose of the law while he was said and we know he mentioned that there is a time right before it's thought that if a person makes why and there inshallah we have high hopes that a law that law will be accepted inshallah so we should use our umbar for making the law and in particular this whole time in America for so for Saturday in the morning, don't just eat and go back to sleep reserve a little time to make a little while while the food's being warmed up after you're done eating waiting for the stream minutes make a little while allows me to run as hard as it

00:05:33--> 00:06:09

allows me This is another part of the Quran. Asahi de Masada Tina, Tina Waldman, 15. A Well, Mr. fillerina bill as hard as we just mentioned regarding the Sahaba that they use that late part of the night or early part of the morning for making us too far and remembering Allah subhana wa Tada. We also see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the month of Ramadan, he increased his take up. The gap is like a spiritual retreat, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, what less than his communication with people. So in the month of Ramadan, we should also cut back on our socializing, cut back from our Facebook, cut back from our Twitter, cut back from YouTube, cut back

00:06:09--> 00:06:41

from whatever it is that we can cut back from trying to make cutbacks on it. I'm not saying don't invite people over to your house for thought. What I'm saying is that if the purpose is a thought, feed them and then after that, avoid the backbiting. Avoid the slandering, avoid the gossip in the month of Ramadan, what we're trying to do is we're trying to take time that we waste a little from here a little from there a little from here a little from there, and add that into our schedule. That's how we increase our Avada in the month of Ramadan. And that's how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam increased his Ibadan the month of Ramadan. So the first lesson that we're learning

00:06:41--> 00:07:10

today inshallah and Aziz is that we need to increase our either our Ramadan, 24 hours should not be the same 24 hours outside of Milan, there should be something extra added something different, something we weren't doing, let's add it into our inbox. So we pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us all the trophies and ability to act on what has been said. And that also allows it allows us to implement these beautiful reflections into our lives. So para la de Subhana Allah humbug hamitic Allah Allah, Allah and the stock phylloquinone willeke after the honor and
