You're listening to Ramadan reflections but with the same money. This summer multicuisine will be teaching the Hadith intensive, students will study the different methods of compilation and preservation of a hadith. The major role of female scholars have played in Hadeeth preservation, the biography of famous Hadith narrators as well as different collections and excerpts from famous heady texts like Sahil Bahati. For more information visit Hadeeth intensive.com. So, a lot of Rahim Al hamdu, lillah

00:00:31--> 00:00:34

Allahu akbar wa salam ala, Papa,

00:00:36--> 00:00:36

Kannada,

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

Tamil and Bill via early hilus. Here was harbor hill at Korea about

00:00:45--> 00:00:48

the month of Ramadan is a spiritual season for the believers

00:00:49--> 00:01:08

a season in which we find avenues to gain closeness to Allah subhanahu wa tada to remove the burden that Stefan has placed on our soul and to free ourselves for the ibadah of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. This is a month where we strive to earn our entry into general production.

00:01:09--> 00:01:17

a month in which we do whatever we can to slam those gates have closed, so we have no relationship with them at all.

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

people search for different avenues to agenda.

00:01:23--> 00:02:01

One person chooses one pathway another person chooses another pathway. And the truth is that there isn't only one pathway the agenda after Mr. Human is necessary after Amman there are many pathways that can lead a person to gender and that's what Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran. When levena Jaya hadoo phenol Anna Deanna whom Sula in Allah Allah, Allah moschini those who struggle in our cause. When Latina, Josefina genome, sadhana we will guide them through our paths when de la helemaal masa Nene and allies but those were excellent. Now an interesting thing about this ayah most people when they translate this ayah they miss the one key part of this ayah those who struggle

00:02:01--> 00:02:04

in our cause we will guide them to our

00:02:05--> 00:02:47

Go ahead, not path path. There's an S at the end there, bouboulina it's not civilian, meaning there isn't only one pathway to Allah subhanho wa Tada. There are so many pathways for Allah subhanho wa Tada. Some pathways are a little congested, some are empty, some are very short, some are very long. But at the end of the day, there are so many ways a person can enter into agenda two, three of those, one of my teachers used to say, Allah subhanho wa Taala has mercy showers upon the so much. So such a heavy shower and it's raining down upon us. And it's begging us to go into agenda. But unfortunately we put up an umbrella. We're stopping the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala from

00:02:47--> 00:02:57

touching us. Otherwise, the truth is that if we humble ourselves and just close that umbrella, you won't have to even go anywhere agenda will come and find you. That's how many pathways there are to agenda.

00:02:59--> 00:03:09

There's one Hadith of the purpose of the law while he was selling better that really amazes me, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has an interaction with gvrd salaam. And in this interaction

00:03:11--> 00:03:49

more or less discusses with the progress that Allahu alayhi wa sallam three easy avenues that a person can enter into general through but people still miss out on those. So narration narrative of zema and others, that one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was climbing the pulpit for a hotel for a lecture. And he climbed the first step. And he said, I mean, he climbed the second step set. I mean, he claimed the third step, he said, I mean, once the hobby said on messenger of Allah, why did you say I mean? I mean, I mean, three times when you climb the step, this is something we haven't seen you do before. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded back by saying that as

00:03:49--> 00:04:27

I was climbing the pulpit up naughty saddam came to me and he said my Shahada Ramadan for them, you know who whoever enters or finds a month of Ramadan and that person isn't forgiving Samatha and he dies in the state that this person was not forgiving the Salah now he will enter into the fire of hell father who law and Allah subhana wa tada has thrown that person a far distance. And the Prophet said a long line he was set on set by me, meaning entering into gender and not having the decency to just raise your hands once and say to Allah I'm sorry. You really have to be a very unique creation to not even raise your hands and to alliance that y'all I'm sorry you don't have to go anywhere. Or

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

Milan came to you for Why'd you have to go to Hydra Milan came to you. All you have to do is open the door and say y'all I'm sorry. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continued on on other acabo de Houma Colonia bajo Mata Mata Fatah. The third the second person is a person who found both of his parents are both of her parents are one of the two and was not kind enough to them just to earn their laws and earned their own gender. That person then entered into the fire of hell father who law Allah subhanho wa Taala through this person are far distant away. The prophets of the long line he was sent him said I mean

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

The third person The Prophet said a lot while he was sent him said Mundo character in the home, Pelamis Ali Ali, and whoever mandzukic Tachibana. Is Rama saying the man who killed her in the in the who follow me Sorry Alec, the person who you were mentioned by and he did not say Allahu wa salli ala Muhammad, or that person did not say son, Allahu Allah he was sent him. And that led this person to the fire of home. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I mean, I mean, I mean, so these three pathways when we study them, we see these are the shortest pathways to Agenda after a man. The first of the three pathways is building a relationship with Allah subhana wa tada in the

00:05:35--> 00:06:09

month of Ramadan. The second pathway is by serving your parents. And the third pathway is by building a direct and very personal intimate relationship with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And your relationship reaches a place that anytime someone says the name of our Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the heart trembles, the eyes should tear and the heart yearns to say something Allahu alayhi wa sallam a few days back in my lecture I mentioned that we should make the offer the Prophet said a lot of money was sent him and after I mentioned this in the lecture, a few people came to me afterwards and they said, what does it mean MiG tau ad for the

00:06:09--> 00:06:25

Prophet of Allah. So I stopped making glad for the Prophet of Allah does not mean you and I make Do I look like we would make for ourselves or law Forgive me. The Messenger of Allah is not in need of that law. Making glad for the purpose of the law. While it was still the means we reached a loss upon him Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad there's a lot who I'm not seeing

00:06:27--> 00:07:10

the progress but along with it was said I'm set to the companions in Jenna Allah in the hereafter. Allah subhanho wa Taala has reserved a special station known as Mata Mahmoud, what is the con? Madame Mahmoud? And that station is exclusive for one person. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I desire I will be that person. So make do and for me that Allah grants me that station. He said this to the companions. Look how humble he was. He said to them, You make love for me that Allah grants me that station. That's why after every line, what do we say? Well, Baku, Mama Mama de la de Vaca Asa, Asa Yabba, takarazuka mahkamah, NIDA because that was a station, the Prophet

00:07:10--> 00:07:15

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted a very special, unique station. Today, what I wanted to spend a few moments on

00:07:16--> 00:07:54

when we're talking about these three avenues of entering and agenda is the second one, serving your parents. Those of us who have parents don't understand the value of them. And those of us who've lost them only desire that if we can go and look at our mother's face one more time, only if I can walk through the door once again. And she'd be sitting in front of me smiling at me. Only if I can walk through her door once again for a thought and she'd make food for me one more time. Only if I was sick again. And she would call me and say my son, how are you doing? She was the only one they were the only ones who would make dinner for you. without you having to ask anyone, everyone else in

00:07:54--> 00:08:29

the world. You can ask them to make law for you. By a law you'll be lucky if that person even includes you in their intention. When they're saying Allahumma Filipina, you'll be lucky if your name is even included in the intention when they use a pronoun in there. Otherwise, your parents are the people who are your pathway to gender. These are the people who are yearning and crying for your love. People who just want you to come and smile at them and say mom and dad, you're the best people who are waiting for you to come to their feet and say mom, I want you to make law for me. Father, I want you to make law for me. The poet he said, Yes, my thought is he just called me a doctor and he

00:08:29--> 00:08:32

sucked up me Dr. Gallo to marry masters.

00:08:33--> 00:09:11

This is such a debt to my parents that I owe that I can never pay back. Until I don't return home my mother remains in prostration making law for me, the value of parents is lost. Today we have a tough time answering the call when our parents call us. We get agitated and irritated when they call this repeatedly. We get frustrated when they teach us a lesson or when they repeat the lesson that they taught us more than once or twice. If you're looking for agenda while your parents are being ignored spending your time reading the Koran there's something wrong with your model of spirituality. If you think Gemma is available for someone who fasts, while at the same time their parents are upset with

00:09:11--> 00:09:45

them, then no there's something wrong and faulty with your model of spirituality. And he's got rugby feet on wallet was Takata Rob besotted wallet, the pleasure of your Lord lies in the pleasure of your parent and the displeasure of your Lord lies and the displeasure of your parent. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't grow up under the nurturing of his parents because they left him at a young age. But anyone after that, that fulfill the role of a parent The Prophet said a long while he was going to remember that person. When Holly Masada comes to visit the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he stood up for her. When Baraka came to visit the Prophet for a long

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

while he was in love with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam stood up for her immediately, when the Prophet was traveling past the area where his mother was buried. He stood with the companions and he cried there and they said our messenger below Are you crying the prophets that a lot and he was sent him said when I was

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

Six years old, I stood right there burying my mother, a man who felt pain. And when he saw companions being just being disrespectful to their parents, he's got a lot while he was sent on was the first person to advocate on behalf of the parents, a person didn't hit it off, you understand? You got to understand the weight of his ID or the severity of his life on the line, one city to another in the heat of Arabia on in the desert, you know, don't know if you'll make it or not a person made his you know, he just made the greatest sacrifice you and I could ever think of. And when he arrives in Medina, the purpose of the law while he was said, I'm asked him, did you leave

00:10:35--> 00:10:47

your parents behind happy or angry history, messenger of Allah, my parents were just upset with me. They weren't happy with me. The problem that a lot he was sent him said, then if you want to go back and make them happy, just as you made them upset

00:10:49--> 00:11:28

by your parents, a gift, take your body to their home, sit down and have a thought with them. Turn to your mother and praise her for her beauty. Even if that beauty no longer remains because she sacrificed her beauty serving you go to your father and tell him how strong and handsome he is. Even though today he's gone weak, because no every strand of white hair on his body came into existence because of the concerns worry and effort he put into your life being where it is, it's very easy to turn away from the people who today are probably holding us in their hands and with kisses anytime they have the chance and opportunity to kiss us. Those parents who every time they would close their

00:11:28--> 00:12:04

eyes, they would see our faces in the dreams. Those parents who've done such sacrifices for their kids, that they've never even told the kids. Once I taught to put on evening and put on class for young kids in England when I first started my position as a new mom. 11 years ago, I was teaching a class and there was a young student in front of me, a group of them. And I gave them a task I said each of you will go home. And you will ask your parents to share with you a story that you have no idea of something they've done for you that you have no idea of that they never told you before. The next day, when they came back, they were sharing stories in the class to the class, the whole class

00:12:04--> 00:12:20

was in tears, I was in tears, the students were in tears. Because these people finally understood for a moment, for a scratch of a moment, what it means to be lucky to have parents with you, those of you who have your parents, if you want your agenda, if you really want to solidify your agenda,

00:12:21--> 00:12:51

earn it through your parents, you know, earn it through your parents can go to Alan would put his face on the ground and say oh mother put your foot on my face. It's a really extreme statement. But he would say this and then he would say oh mother put your foot on my face because underneath your foot is gender. You know even said you know him Oh, Hola Hola. Hola. When he would eat with his mother, he would wait for his mother to take a bite and then he will take a bite. Someone asked him why? He said because I fear that what if I take my hand towards a morsel and my mother looks at it and she desires a very same bite. How can I have something my mother looked at with desire. I want

00:12:51--> 00:13:02

her to first look at her food. I want her to take her food. I want her to eat her food. And then after that I can take the opportunity to feed myself in the amount of your loved one. He was

00:13:03--> 00:13:38

one day walking and he came across a better one. abnormality Allah one took off his turban and gave it to that veteran. One of his students said to him that Why did you give him such an expensive gift your turban such an honorable lofty gift, you could have given him something small veterans are usually pleased with small gifts, they don't look for big gifts. So I'm going to be along with Dada in response. He said that this was a person who was close to my father. I didn't give him my my mama today. My turban today because he was a better one. I gave it thinking that he was someone who my father loved and I wanted to give him respect that I would have given to my father but not my father

00:13:38--> 00:14:17

or the law that law has passed away. There are ways for those of us who have lost our parents to earn our gentleness steal gifts on their behalf. This Ramadan, raise your hands and say yeah, Allah forgive my parents, wherever they are, yeah, I'll make their grave into our garden of paradise. What good am I as a child if I cannot be the entry point of my own parents into genitals for those. And if we step out of our way today to make to offer our kids today, for our parents today. Sorry if we go out of our way today to make love for our parents. And we have this concern that I want to be their pathway into genda then know that one day when you leave this world there will be a child

00:14:17--> 00:14:57

standing after you at your grave making to offer you there will be a child giving stuff on your behalf. There will be someone who will read on on your behalf because what you do come out to the new to them or as they say in English, what goes around comes around what you do for people will come back to you as well. They love to kind of bless us with all of the avenues of gender. They'll open up all those doors and inspire us with the strength to access all those pathways and repay to Allah subhana wa tada softens our hearts and removes the arrogance from us that we humble ourselves in front of the parents who humble themselves in front of us for our entire lives. They give their

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

life for us. Yeah Allah, we pray.

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

That you accept the remaining of our life for their sake was that Allahu Allah Allah serum Hamad Ramallah rahmatullah wa barakato
