00:00:01--> 00:00:33

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. I welcome you all to another session and we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it beneficial, just waiting for chef Ibrahim as well as some of the others who follow to join the stream in Sharla. Living in LA Today we will be speaking about Ramadan. Some of the advice which we can derive from the Quran and the Sunnah. salaam aleikum wa, Salam O Allah who about a cat how you should

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

handle in line well I hope you're well and I hope everybody else was following on well and ready for the month of Ramadan inshallah. inshallah. inshallah. In fact, that's our topic of discussion today.

00:00:48--> 00:01:07

Even in left, with only a few days left for the month of Ramadan, I think in some places too, and some places three days left for the month of Ramadan. Maybe we could speak about some of the virtues and what somebody should be looking out for, especially in the beginning of Ramadan, or how could they make the most out of these few days that remain?

00:01:08--> 00:01:23

I think gearing up for Ramadan is important and perhaps you know, eating slightly less right now during the daytime can help you just ease into the fast as you come into Ramadan, as well as at the same time

00:01:24--> 00:01:33

increasing your recitation and pondering over the Quran, etc. In these few days so that as we get into Ramadan, it won't be so difficult for you to carry on.

00:01:35--> 00:02:11

Yes, as you mentioned, also, when we look at the month of Ramadan, we find that there were many events that occurred. So for example, the Koran was revealed in the month of Ramadan. Also, we find that one of the main battles the Battle of battle occurred in the month of Ramadan, at the same time we find during this month is Laila too. So maybe inshallah we'll touch a bit on these points, even the left, what happens when it comes to the fore? And what does the last panel what the highlights say about Ramadan? Firstly, yeah, you're Latina, armano quotevalet como si m kuchibhotla Latina men, who

00:02:12--> 00:02:39

are you who believe addressing us as believers? Whenever La Jolla, Allah addresses us with a un levina and we should know that he's giving us an order either to do something or stay away from something. Here he is telling us that fasting has most definitely been ordained, it has been made compulsory upon you. In the same way, the previous nations, they also were made to fast so that they may attain duckula.

00:02:40--> 00:03:28

Yes, so that they may attain consciousness Exactly. And later on Allah subhanho wa Taala Not long after that, he says, shall Ramadan and levy on Zilla field for the month of the Quran, you know, in which the Quran was revealed. So, this is the month of the Quran and we really need to increase and strengthen our relationship with this or that also kind of what Allah has sent not only as a his word that we will recite, but at the same time ponder over and gain some benefit from some people say that, you know, only those who understand the Arabic language should ponder over the Quran. Only those who really know what Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying directly from the text should ponder

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

over it. But I don't think this is true. Because the bulk of the people have been addressed with the Quran affiliated and burn Quran to the day not ponder upon the Quran. So we need to ponder upon the Quran and its meanings even if you don't understand the Arabic language pick up a verse a an A assume that you know about or you recite regularly in your Salah. And then ponder upon that deeply because you'll find yourself rejuvenated with that fought over the colon and in the Quran.

00:04:06--> 00:04:41

Yes, as you mentioned, and I think it's important for us to break it down a little bit further. So people who are following or who will listen later on, they have different levels. They are those who maybe they cannot recite the Quran looking inside, maybe they can't recite the Arabic. They are those who perhaps they know how to recite but haven't memorized the others who have memorized. So maybe if we could give advice to every tear or every part of society, so maybe if we start off with those people, maybe they are new Muslims, or they've never learned the Arabic language. What advice would you give them?

00:04:45--> 00:04:48

Is Yes, yes. And that's a lot of the people. Exactly.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

That's a lot of the people. So a lot of people actually don't Yeah, gone gone. I think that when it comes to this group of people, those who

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

Don't know the Arabic language those who can't recite on their own, the first thing they can start doing is listening to the Quran. So maybe outside the month of Ramadan, you don't really listen to the Quran regularly. So in the month of Ramadan, make a you know a fixed time whether it's after a Salah or the first thing in the morning whatever is suitable for you take at least five to 10 minutes begin with that and just listen to the poor and try and go over it. Following very Sunday you may not understand or you may not be able to follow looking inside, but at least believe in Allah, you will attain the blessing, the reward and the Baraka of listening to the word of Allah.

00:05:40--> 00:06:26

What I find amazing about the Quran is that in this time of turmoil, difficulty, hardship, where people don't understand what is going on in the world, there's a lot of confusion. People don't really know what's going on when you recite the Quran, ponder upon its meanings, understand it, try to practice upon some of its teachings, especially after a session that you have had with the poor and you find yourself having this amazing clarity where everything becomes very, very clear. And you know your purpose you know why you're here you know what's happening, you You won't understand fully the confusion that's going on but with regards to yourself, you know in which direction to move, so

00:06:26--> 00:06:52

that no longer clouds your judgment. And I find this amazing and you know interestingly, Allah subhanahu wa taala has instructed us also once SLM has instructed us to read solo to calf for protection from the deceiver, that gel when he comes. So when you read the first verses Allah subhanho wa Taala says that Alhamdulillah hilarie Enza Allah, Allah,

00:06:53--> 00:07:00

Allah, Allah, Allah, he didn't make it crooked this book. So it gives you the clarity, it gives you that

00:07:02--> 00:07:09

understanding of how to get to the straight path, and it just opens up your doors in so many different ways.

00:07:10--> 00:07:50

You know, exactly what you mentioned. There's nobody who's tried to live with the Quran and put it into their day to day lives. in whatever way you are able to accept that you see its benefit. You see the Baraka, you see the ease, especially when you start your day off with the program. As we mentioned, for this group of people who may not know how to recite the program, begin by listening to it, then look at a translation in your own language. Maybe you're not used to reading so many pages, start with one page, we'll start with a few verses, maybe you set a goal for the month of Ramadan, the 30th juice or the last portion of the Quran, I would like to read this during the month

00:07:50--> 00:07:56

of Ramadan in my language, and try to understand a bit more what my creator is trying to tell me.

00:07:57--> 00:08:39

I keep repeating this throughout to any sessions that I have where I'm telling the people that look, we've been reciting the Quran regularly all the time. for years on end, we've been doing Hatem after Hutton. But especially when it comes to the month of Ramadan. But how many of us have really and truly transformed our lives through that recitation? So why haven't we we've got to ask that question. And then, now that we've asked the question, and we've got the answer, we know that because we don't understand the poll, and we haven't been inculcating its messages into our lives fully or, you know, benefiting in the manner that we can or to the extent that we can, so shouldn't

00:08:39--> 00:09:25

it be that we should focus more on that, rather than trying to just complete again and again, yes, maybe you have 100. And so you reduce it from two to one but focus more on the on the recitation and on the pondering over the Quran or inculcating its verses into your life. In that way, you will be able to really and truly become a manifestation of the portal and when I say this, I mean, like how Rasulullah saw Selim was described this character as being kind of hood of Guru Cohen, his character was the core and many of you saw something inculcated it into his life. And in that way, he became a better person. He learned so much from the Quran in itself, of course, it was perfect. And, but he

00:09:25--> 00:09:28

always was improving and that was part of His perfection.

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

As you mentioned, you know, it's so important that we finally start to, you know, ponder over the Quran understand what the Creator is telling us. You know, if we take a worldly example, if you write an exam, or if you had to study a book or a syllabus, and you knew it from cover to cover, you could read it without any mistakes, but somebody had to ask you, how do you implement this? What do you what does this book say about this? If you can't even understand one verse or one line, I think it's about time we also address

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

That part of it. So if that's to do with the worldly example, what about the word of the Creator? When in law his method will Anna moving on to the next group of people unless you want to add anything onto this point before we move on? No, no, please go on.

00:10:14--> 00:10:23

The next group of people are those who be able to recite the Quran looking inside. So they know how to recite, they can read, what advice would you give to them?

00:10:25--> 00:10:37

They know how to recite and read the Quran. As such people are really and truly blessed because number one, they can look into the Quran they know how to read it, and they understand correct

00:10:38--> 00:10:40

they understand.

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

Okay, so.

00:10:43--> 00:11:24

Okay, so let's say they don't understand they they are blessed because they can read the Arabic language. I know certain people who actually can't read and they've just memorized certain verses. So for them, they only repeat those verses and like you mentioned, those who and we're going back to the earlier category, those who can't actually, it should listen more and more to the Quran, because that will help them be you know, at least be able to listen to the rest of the Quran, besides that, which they've memorized. But when it comes to those who are able to read, then take the full benefit of this ability to read and recite as much as possible, but don't recite to the point where you

00:11:24--> 00:12:08

become tired and you don't even know really and truly you're not focusing on the touch, read etc. Because you know, the Hadith says that in Allah Allah Melo had testimonial, for Indeed Allah does not become tired until you become tired. Of course, the attribute of tiredness is not for Allah subhanho wa Taala we're not saying that he becomes tired meaning in the humanly way but meaning Allah subhanho wa Taala is in that regard until you have left it, you You are now out of it. He also turns away from you. So we need to you know, look into this and really try and read the Quran with concentration. And then when you are tired, then switch over to something else, perhaps listening to

00:12:08--> 00:12:15

the port, and then pondering over it, and in different ways, you know, so you you basically engage with the poem differently.

00:12:16--> 00:12:49

You know, as you mentioned, this group of people who are able to at least recite the Quran looking inside, they should recite it. Have your timetable have your goal for the month. Some people may say that we can't recite it perfectly. We may struggle. It may be difficult on our tongues. Well the heavy fasudil most of the love of Allah wa Salaam says the one who reads the poem recite the Quran, and it is difficult for him what we attack attack, it's difficult for him, he will have two rewards, one for recitation, and the other for actually struggling and putting in the effort.

00:12:50--> 00:13:06

Yes, we're lucky that's so true. Because people recite the Quran and struggle with it and they feel like Ah, you know, I should give up on this but don't give up because there's so much reward you have more reward than the one who is able to recite it fluently and perfectly.

00:13:07--> 00:13:26

And I think adding to this group of people who are able to recite looking inside also start trying to understand it if you don't know the Arabic go to the English translation, if you know that Arabic maybe it's about time you started looking into the simple or simple explanations of the Quran.

00:13:28--> 00:13:51

Yes, Allah He Allah He is definitely you had mentioned some categories. So what's the last category of people I think we could say the last category of people. The third category of people I think we could put them into for the third we would say are those who have memorized the Quran? So they know how to recite it off by heart. They're able to recite it whether it's a few Jews or the whole Koran. What advice would you give to them?

00:13:54--> 00:14:26

Well, you start use the chip now you You go ahead. I think the first thing when it comes to this group of people remember after you've memorized the Quran as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says he gave the example of a camel if you just leave it, it will run away if it's not tight. So in the same way the Quran you have to carry on revising, going over it. So this group of people during the year you go over the forum if you haven't if you've been slacking, this is an opportunity Firstly, for you to go over what you've memorized so you don't forget it.

00:14:28--> 00:14:40

is in that revision? Sorry, did you finish your point there or did it get it seems to be on my side Luckily, we can add on after you mentioned your point.

00:14:42--> 00:14:48

Okay, so one more thing is that in that revision you find that there's so many different gems that a person

00:14:50--> 00:14:57

denied from the full answer if this person as far as I got it, right. He's the person will understand the plan as well.

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

If he recites

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

And he revises it again and again, every time he comes across an area, if he's paying attention to the meaning, you find that that such a person begins to derive more and more gems from the Quran is different angles that you come to the same a from, and you derive different benefits and Alhamdulillah. You know, this is something that shows us that this is the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because ultimately, these are words that he spoke. So it is, you know, the equality of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it's amazing how you find that revision actually benefits you in different ways.

00:15:39--> 00:16:02

Along with revising, one should try and understand what he's reading, you know, you've been over the Quran, you know it by heart, maybe it's about time, you start looking at what your Creator is saying to you. Same with the previous categories. Not only that, maybe if you read an English book, or you could listen to somebody who's actually explaining the Koran, or discussing topics of the Quran

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

is yes, Allah.

00:16:06--> 00:16:20

I think the fourth category and the last the final category, we would say that those people who have memorized the Quran, and with them, they have the Arabic language, they understand the Arabic language, what advice could you give to them?

00:16:22--> 00:17:07

Yes, these these, I feel are the most blessed people in terms of the abilities. So a lot of what Allah has blessed him with the capacity to understand what he's saying to them directly. They need to make sure that number one, the understanding of the verse is in accordance with the understanding of the previous generation. So we don't want to come to a situation where you have the a misunderstanding of the verse. So number one, make sure it's the correct understanding. And then once you've got that base, there are no limits. So you understand that there are certain things that are out here, because you can't derive this conclusion based on the actual Tafseer of this idea, but

00:17:07--> 00:17:34

then there are other gems that you will derive from that idea. And those is that there is literally I think there's no limit to in fact, our minds are too limited when it comes to this. So you'll find that different people will come up with different explanations, but we won't get to the the limit. What would that I so you can just gain so much from the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala?

00:17:35--> 00:18:12

Most definitely, I think when you look at the books of IFC, you find those who explained the meaning in brief, you find those who have mainly spoken about halal and haram is that speak about fit. You find those who have mainly spoken about the stories in the Quran, you find those who look at it from a linguistic point of view. And as you said, there is no limit to that. So one who understands the Arabic who's memorized the Quran, you should take advantage of the gift Allah Allah Allah has given him and he should show gratitude of this gift is starting to read the various stuff I see or the various explanations of the Quran.

00:18:14--> 00:18:41

Yes, sir. hamdulillah so I think that that way, we've discussed how the poor actually helps you become a person who's conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Ramadan. So Allah subhana wa tada mentions it, landline, phone and then few lines down. He mentioned shalom Ramadan and levy on Zilla field. So the taqwa and consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala has a direct link with the in the month of Ramadan.

00:18:42--> 00:19:23

You know, I was reading a hadith of hadith of Ibn ambassador of your loved one woman, wherein he says Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most generous of people. And his generosity was even more apparent during the month of Ramadan, when gibreel alayhis salam would meet him in order to teach him the Quran way they would go over it. And some of the scholars derived from this heavy that if you really want to understand the Quran, and you really want a larger lavallette to grant you an opening one of the ways you can do this is by being generous, being generous with your time giving people even when it comes to food when it comes to drink when it comes to wealth, and a

00:19:23--> 00:19:30

larger nawala will help the one who helps others Allah Allah Allah will grant you understanding of this book even Allah

00:19:32--> 00:19:52

is super gentle. I've never heard that explanation actually. So how it's linked to the Quran as well because Ramadan being the month of support on your generosity will actually help you understand the Quran in a better light and in a better we I've never actually heard that. So it's it's something new that I'm learning.

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

I think we've touched on quite a bit when it comes to the poll and there's a lot that can be said what about when it

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

comes to the actual fast maybe when it comes to the nutrition waking up in the morning breaking your fast what should a person be doing whilst he's fasting?

00:20:09--> 00:20:39

I think that that hunger and thirst should remind you of Allah subhanho wa Taala you should think of why you're hungry, hungry and thirsty. It's not that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants your throat to be parched and your belly to be empty, but he wants you to remember him and be conscious of him. So that should remind you of the main goal and purpose of fasting which is to achieve the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:20:40--> 00:21:18

Yes, most definitely. During this month of Ramadan, you leave something that you love and you like for the sake of Allah, it trains you and teaches you that any bad habits if you are able to leave food and drink which are essential for survival, other bad habits may be it may be smoking or other bad deeds, even in law, you will also be able to leave these bad habits it's like Allah Allah Allah is giving you a training camp to show you that certain things Yes, it may take time but you are able to do it. So use that as your stepping stone to start getting rid of bad habits.

00:21:19--> 00:22:05

Yes, believers Ramadan, you know, doesn't only end when I say Ramadan, I mean it you know, metaphorically, it doesn't end with these days from above. So you take what you've learned here and implement it into the rest of your life. Or we you look at your own life has been you born and then you need to fast from certain deeds and you need to engage in others and be more conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala until you pass on and that's literally the breaking of your fast which is the end of your life. At which point there's no restrictions anymore so Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you whatever you want, you can now eat and drink and have enjoy and engage in whatever desires you'd

00:22:05--> 00:22:13

like in general. So I think the day of Ramadan can become a lesson for for the believer altogether.

00:22:14--> 00:22:56

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all agenda and the Ramadan which is accepted. What would you say when it comes to for example, if you look at acts of worship, you find when it comes to soccer, you find this two things which are mentioned here first is you give Zakat obviously asking for or not expecting but with the intention of gaining closeness to Allah subhana wa Tada. So is there is that aspect of your relationship with Allah. But there's also that aspect where it reminds you to be good to the people. Also when it comes to fasting, it reminds you of Allah, Allah, Allah remind you of taqwa. But at the same time, you should remember those who are less fortunate those who don't

00:22:56--> 00:23:09

have anything to eat, and maybe, or you should try your best to feed them, maybe if you could tell us of the reward of a person who provides a bar or some food for a fasting person to break his fast.

00:23:10--> 00:23:58

So the hadith of Rasulullah saw Selim tells us that if you feed a fasting person, then not only will you receive the reward of your fast, but the fast of that person as well, and he will not be decreased in any way whatsoever. So this is the general meaning of the Howdy. So he will not be decreased, his reward is not decreased, and you receive his reward as well. So why not feed as many people as possible, especially at a time where hunger and thirst becomes you become more aware of this. So you you are naturally, you should naturally feel a sense of sympathy towards these people who don't have something to break the fast with, or perhaps they do, but not enough. And generally,

00:23:58--> 00:24:15

I think that Ramadan should remind us that they are people who feel like as if they are fasting throughout the year, they feel hunger every single day. So why can't we help these people and provide for them Allah Subhana Allah will provide for us.

00:24:16--> 00:24:33

And the fact that Allah has provided for us we need to try and help people, you know, handouts are definitely something that you need to do. But at the same time, we were speaking the other day about hand, a hand up, we empower a person, perhaps you can shed some light on that shift.

00:24:34--> 00:25:00

You know, the point you mentioned, I've haven't really heard anybody put it like that way. You said, we remember those who are fasting so to speak their whole lives, they've got nothing. They you know, hand to mouth. Sometimes they starving for days on end. And you know, I think you put it in a way where, you know, we can understand if we go in through 30 days, what about those who are fasting their whole lives because they don't have

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

They don't have drink, they waiting for aid to get to them. So I think it's extremely important to think about them and help them. You're also speaking about

00:25:10--> 00:25:51

empowering, empowering or helping people to overcome certain challenges in life. As we mentioned the other day, yes, it's extremely rewarding, to give out to give out charity, to give people food, to give people money to give people things, but at the same time, it's also extremely rewarding, and at times better to actually teach and empower this person. What do we mean by this, I'll give you an example. Yes, it's good to give somebody a meal with 10 meals or whatever it may be. But however, this is consumption, there is a reward for it, it is soda. But there are also things in the Sharia, such as a wok, building something where the actual structure remains, but it carries on feeding

00:25:51--> 00:26:30

people. So for example, maybe you give them seeds, and you get into a not necessarily a contract, it could be a charity, but these people have something to sustain them constantly. So you've bought a farm for them, or you've bought a farm for the community, or they have a patch of land, and you help them to grow their fruits and vegetables. Here, they are not waiting for you, every week or every month to come and deliver them, maybe they will come and they were you unable to deliver, maybe they will come a day like the the difficulties we are facing now, where businesses don't have profits, they don't have money, at least you have empowered this community, they have their own food, they

00:26:30--> 00:26:48

have their own drink. And it's a long topic, which we can speak about. It's mentioned in the Sharia, yes, charity is good. But we should also start thinking of actually teaching these people how to fish as the same goes, instead of always giving a fish because there comes a time where you can't provide that fish.

00:26:49--> 00:27:08

Yes, Allah he, you know, handouts are definitely beneficial, and they might provide immediate relief. But at the same time, we've got to empower these beings to try and provide for themselves, and then they will be able to benefit others. So I think that in that way, the benefit will be a lot more contagious,

00:27:09--> 00:27:30

then, if that's the right word to use, you know, then a just a hand down. So I always heard this from Mashallah, I heard it from my father, actually, where he would say, hand up instead of a hand down. So that that will actually you know, elevate the person and at the same time, it gives them this feeling of

00:27:32--> 00:28:15

honor, you know, with the dignity, they feel like they've maintained their dignity, and they can now help others. So I think that's important, we can actually talk about that. On another occasion between let me give an alert even quickly going through some of the remaining topics we spoke about before, and we spoke about fasting itself and feeding people. What happens now, when it comes to a person when it comes to the main event in Ramadan, and a person who wants to witness this event later, Adam, what should a person be doing from the very beginning of Ramadan? I think very Firstly, or the very first thing a person can do is start asking Allah subhanho wa Taala. Make do are asking

00:28:15--> 00:28:48

for the trophy and the ability to witness this night and make you from the ones who benefited the most from this night. At the end of the day, we can try as much as we want. We can read as much as we want, we can practice as much as we want. However, the devil field of Elijah lavalla, his permission for you to do something is ultimately what prevails. So we should start asking a larger Nevada to grant us over 10 feet to actually be from those who attain who or who have the best shape the largest share when it comes to this night.

00:28:49--> 00:29:03

Yes, yes, in with regards to little other. I think people just need to really understand the value of this night. When we say that it's better than 1000 months, know that Allah subhanho wa Taala has said that,

00:29:04--> 00:29:53

you know, it is better than 1000 months. So if you if someone had to tell you that come and look for 1010 days or 10 nights look for this night, and one of the nights will definitely be the night and on that night, you will receive 1000 times more profit than you would usually in your business. What would you do you every night you'd stay awake the whole night to make sure that you get that night Why? Because 1000 months, not 1000 days. That's so many years. That's a whole lifetime. Why wouldn't they stay awake? Now, we might not see the immediate benefit of staying awake throughout these 10 nights but understand that you will find it one day with Allah subhana wa tada and if you look hard

00:29:53--> 00:30:00

enough, the immediate benefits will also become clear to you. You will see how Allah subhanho wa Taala will help

00:30:00--> 00:30:13

You in your life you become a better human being you you're naturally improve in your life. So I think people need to understand the value of this night in order to actually look for it in the first place.

00:30:14--> 00:30:56

Most definitely, you need to understand what it's all about why is what was the reward that the last panel what Allah has promised? Why did that happen? If we look at the previous nations, we find that a legend the one that granted them long lives, people lived up to 1000 years and more, no Halle salon is that we're only calling his people was 1000 years less 50. So when it comes to this, man, we find that there's only a few years we live, our lifespans are roughly between 60 and 70. And for many people, it's even much less than that. So Allah Allah, Allah gave us this opportunity to make the most of it. Imagine one night during these last 10 likes, you look for it. At the beginning,

00:30:56--> 00:31:34

it's mentioned that was soulless, Allahu Allahu wa sallam was looking for this night during the whole month of Ramadan, all 30 days. So in the first 10, the second time, the last time eventually he was informed that this night is in the last 10. So imagine 10 days out of the whole year is 365 or 366 days in the solar calendar, and 360 roughly in the lunar calendar. All you have to look out for all you have to you know, put emphasis and hard work in is these 10 nights. We're not saying then leave it but be evening that this will be your starting block your foundation to build even after the month from above.

00:31:36--> 00:32:30

Yes, you know, when we look at the generations of the past, and the people of ad and the mood and no Helene salatu salam, his people saw it and all of these ambia many of them had long lifespans. So they lived for 1000 years. 1500 years. We know know how to use salatu salam lived for very, very long, long time infinity Isla hum Santa Ana la semana mortality is 1000 years except for 50. So basically, they lived very long, and we have the chance to live a small life and at the same time, a short life gain very word that they did or not saying the mBiA masala to us and that the people of those ambia the reward that they gained in 1000 years, so you living 60 to 70 years, and you're

00:32:30--> 00:32:55

gaining the reward of 1000 1500 years. That means that Allah subhana wa tada has favored you, you only have to put very little effort and get so much reward. Perhaps you can surpass the reward that they have attained and achieved in their time in that whole 1000 years. 1500 years. Of course, we're not talking about the NBA Alec masala to sell them because we can never reach a level and they status.

00:32:57--> 00:33:16

Yes, as you mentioned, I think what's also important to mention, sometimes people when they hear about all this Fatherland, virtue, when Ramadan stuff the first two, three days they add it and this was not their usual habit. So they're not used to it and you'll find that they will go away after two, three days. What advice would you give such people

00:33:17--> 00:33:59

is start slowly take it easy to as much as possible. But at the same time. Remember, don't get tired in that a bed and that worship, when you are tired, change up the activity, do something with the intention of reward, but it can be normal, your household chores, etc. You're going about just sitting and thinking about the creation of Allah subhanho, wa Taala all of that which is around you. And make sure that you don't get tired of that, either. Because if you do in the beginning few days, this is a very good point that you've raised because a lot of people sometimes we find ourselves also will you do a lot in the first few days and then you you taper off and you become tired and you

00:33:59--> 00:34:41

you leave it or you become you know you do much less towards the end. Whereas if you build slowly, and you maintain what you've got, then that is in agreement with the Hadith of the messengers of Solomon where he says, I have many allies at the WeMo house in Atlanta, that the most beloved of actions are to Allah subhanho wa Taala are those which are consistent, even if they may be less, so maintain the consistency and it should be like a graph that is going up and it goes up and peaks right at the end of Ramadan. And that way you've really achieved your your consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:34:43--> 00:35:00

you know, as we mentioned the other day, whatever you do in life, you start slowly, slowly, slowly and you intending to peek at a certain place or a certain time and when it comes to the month of Ramadan, obviously it's the last 10 days of Ramadan. So start slowly build your progress people

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

consistent. So you are ready and you are able to peak at that time, even the left.

00:35:06--> 00:35:11

Even in the 100% there's a story there's some disturbance in the background.

00:35:12--> 00:35:18

But can you hear me clearly? Is there anything else you'd like to add on to the points we've mentioned?

00:35:19--> 00:35:26

shortly I think we were talking about how we're going to have this program throughout the month of Ramadan and what we're going to talk about inshallah, could you enlighten us

00:35:28--> 00:36:08

I think after discussing with you even in land also reading some of the comments today people wanted a similar sort of, you know, session in the month of Ramadan. So we were thinking even the last month of Ramadan is generally 29 to 30 days before and has 30 Jews or 30 parts to it even Illa every day we want to discuss some of the verses in that Jews so for example, they want we look at the first just maybe a story from the plan I think, I think stories people relate to and we can derive some of the benefits you know, sometimes you read the story, you understand the story, but there's a deeper meaning to it.

00:36:09--> 00:36:24

Yes, yes, I think this is going to be a fantastic series with Mainland China and guys, make sure that you remember that it's every day, so inshallah we'll be coming on everyday will advertise the time and the topic within the light Island.
