De was like me as marine among medicine Linda mahanta who Salah, Jilin has an either sheet assembler or BSc voila, you are still with me milk a woman can stream we thank Allah how cool is that you Angela for having gathered us here once again and we ask Allah subhana wa tada to surround us with the mela he can and to cause his mercy and His Sakina to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR Allah animal salatu salam, and those whom he has mentioned with them. I mean,

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

there was a woman in Makkah known as

00:00:59--> 00:01:51

she was from Korea. And what she would do is that she would spend some time taking up some yarn, and thread it together, order her slaves to do so as well. And when it was beautifully, a carpet or a cloth, and it had been thread into something that could be used, by the middle of the day, she would command all her slaves to then take that and undo it. And they would undo all the hard work. This woman was mentally ill he was mentally challenging. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us the month of Ramadan, in which we are to prepare for the rest of the year in which we are to learn a lesson as and take it as a matter of self as a school for the rest of the year and how we should behave in the

00:01:51--> 00:02:40

rest of the year. The person who only worships in the month of Ramadan, and as soon as read comes, they engage in wrong and in harm, they are happy to go back to the old habits and ways are similar to that woman in Makkah. Allah subhanho wa Taala gave you the opportunity you gain closeness to him. You are very close to him at the end of Ramadan and as soon as Ramadan ends, what happens? The razor blade comes out, we shave off the beard, the hijab comes off the head immediately. And we no longer want to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala mm hmm Allahu taala was asked about a people who worship Allah subhanho wa Taala only during the month of Ramadan, and then as soon as the Ramadan has ended,

00:02:40--> 00:02:45

they forget about Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he says, how old he

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

was he sort of bad and

00:02:50--> 00:03:04

those are the worshipers of Ramadan and they don't worship the Lord, the creator of Ramadan. Allah What do you think about that? Allah subhanho wa Taala remains, a Muslim has gone.

00:03:05--> 00:03:56

Allah subhanho wa Taala has not changed he gives you an opportunity every day of your life. As long as you wake up and you are breathing there is air going into your lungs and coming out. Allah subhanho wa Taala has provided you with an opportunity not only is an opportunity but Ramadan is a madrasa for the rest of our lives and the rest of the year and this is why the Hadith says while I'm Allahu Isla Ramadan Kapha to me muy bien a Muna to Liberty Canada in Ramadan to Ramadan is a compensation for the bad deeds so long for so long as you keep away from the greater evil deeds. So it is the Ramadan that keeps you away from harm in the rest of the year that is an accepted or an

00:03:56--> 00:04:20

urban, not the person who sits and waits. I can't wait till the end of Ramadan. Why? Because I need to go back to this habit or that habit of mine. Someone might say that it's very difficult for me to change my entire life. At least if you see some change in your life. after Ramadan, you know that you have spent it in the right manner. You see, in Ramadan, we made it

00:04:21--> 00:04:59

and we ask Allah subhana wa Allah to accept it from us. Yeah, mocha libelle colusa bit Can you be hygienic, Oh Allah, The Turner of hearts, affirm my heart to your religion. Part of that religion is your leaving of the movies that are one part of that religion is the leaving of any sins that you are committing before Ramadan. Part of that religion is the Salah that you performed for Allah subhanho wa Taala before Ramadan and during Ramadan. So Allah subhana wa tada remains when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away from this world.

00:05:00--> 00:05:30

Abubakar simply called the Allahu anhu. He had heard that there were some people saying that whoever says and in fact it was wrong about the Allah one who he says whoever says that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has passed away. Then I will slice his neck. I will cut his neck. How can you say such a thing? Abubakar? Oh Cindy told me Oliver and Manu office. He went out to the people and he says in a woman can Abu Mohammed,

00:05:31--> 00:06:13

Mohammed and Padma The one who was worshipping Mohammed, Mohammed has passed on Salalah or any new senator and woman can out would allow her to in the law, how you lay a moot but the one who was worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is Ever living and he never dies. Allah is Ever living and he never dies Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is gone, his time has gone in the same manner other Milan is gone, but Allah subhanho wa Taala remains. So, some of the Salah that we will perform it let us perform it, let us continue with it. Some of the other time that we were doing, let us do it even out of the month of Ramadan.

00:06:14--> 00:07:02

Allah subhanho wa Taala in fact the scholars they mentioned that the explanation of the Hadith will have Julian Mabu Lisa, who Joseph and Jana and the Hajj that is accepted, there is no reward for it except for Jana. There's no reward for it. Except for gentlemen, the scholars explain that how do I know that my hedge is accepted? When I see myself behaving in the right manner after the hedge I know that hedge has been accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala in the same manner, if you see yourself worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala after Ramadan, you see yourself having changed after Ramadan, then you know that you will Milan has been accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let us not be

00:07:02--> 00:07:08

worshipers of Ramadan but rather worship is of the love of Ramadan. You know Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:07:10--> 00:07:19

that, oh Milan is the month of the Shahada, Ramadan and maybe Uzi Laffy Lupo who then

00:07:20--> 00:08:07

see what the ina ciminelli Buddha wonderful pon the demon month of Ramadan is the month of the Quran. It is a guidance, a means of guidance for the people and an evidence where the United mean and Buddha went for Khan and a criterion between right and wrong. Now when the month of Ramadan has ended, you've performed you know Salah you've read you're on the entire month of Ramadan, reading it tirelessly. Not getting tired at all knowing that there is a reward with Allah subhanho wa Taala Don't let it be such that as soon as Ramadan ends that will arm shuts and you don't see it until the next Ramadan. Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the condition of such people near or soon. The

00:08:07--> 00:08:14

messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will complain about such people on the day of work on asanoyama.

00:08:18--> 00:09:09

And I'm Angela and the messenger will see indeed my people my people have left the sport on they have divorced the sport and Oh Allah. Don't be from amongst those people. Let you let the worship that you were doing in Ramadan has an effect upon you after the month of Ramadan in the same manner. My Lamia de toda su de la mera de Waal Jalla Pele Selena nifi hijacking any other any other michelada the one who did not mean evil speech, false accusation, bad words for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah does not need his hunger and his test. You did you did that in the month of Ramadan you avoided saying any evil and bad speech as soon as the month of Ramadan ends? You find

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

yourself swearing at your workers. Why? Why is Allah subhanho wa Taala not watching you anymore? Is it that you don't care? And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, shouldn't that's why my mind has been a lesson for you to leave or evil, evil words and bad speech. You know, I find it amazing, especially when it comes to swearing. I find it amazing that people have to add this into the language. Why? Why? You know, an occasional slip of the tongue is not excused. But you can understand that sometimes a person is in a rage and they say something but every word every second word. No this effing man and that fn lady and that F and forgive my language. I have to say it. Why? Because I

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

hear it.

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

One more time one more he thought Mullah. Sometimes you come out of the masjid and you hear these words in the copper Allah what I love What? Why? Why didn't add value to you language? Why do you say Allah subhana wa tada says further he said he had a year to a year, Masha Allah, Allah doesn't mean him to leave his food and his drink. What does this mean? That even your Salah was a karma doesn't mean why? Because you can't utter good words. You can't say good words. Love walk like never say back. And you know what it does, it doesn't decrease the person that you speaking to in that manner in any way. He decreases your status amongst the people they look at you as a person who

00:10:45--> 00:11:30

cannot control his tongue as a person who is actually you know, vulgar. And this is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that the mock mean, you don't find him swearing all the time, you don't find him and that he shall but he is not immoral in his speech all the time. Why? Because he has a man and belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let us leave this evil and false speech. Allah subhanho wa Taala. He gave us this month of Ramadan as an opportunity for us to gain closeness to him and for us to learn. If we take a look at the way the fast goes in the first place, we begin our fast at shuffle. And we have that little meal. And we start out fast. In the beginning of the first

00:11:30--> 00:11:56

day of school, it is easy for us to move along with the past 910 o'clock, 11 o'clock, it's okay. Now when the sun begins to heat up, we begin to feel that hunger. Now, I like to liken this to our entire life. Why? Because as the day goes, you find it gets harder and harder, tougher and tougher, the challenges become more and more and then comes is fine.

00:11:57--> 00:12:41

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says that they saw me from Hatton the fasting person has two times of happiness from her two main three hear from her tune in the lobby, there is a happiness when he breaks his past and a happiness when he meets his love. Why did Allah subhanho wa Taala join these two together? Why? Why? Because your fast is like your entire life, you find it easy. In the beginning, it gets harder and more difficult that the hunger and the thirst kicks in the challenges become more it becomes harder for you to control your tongue towards the end of the day. And then comes the happiness with Allah subhanho wa Taala the same way you are born into this world life is

00:12:41--> 00:13:09

easy for you, your parents look after you. It's easy. But as you grow the challenges get more you go to school, you've got to do certain things, there are certain restrictions that you have to watch out for. And then it becomes more and more challenging. As you think that now my life cannot get any more difficult, it gets even harder. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you a chance. And now he's testing you as you go closer to your death to becoming harder and more difficult, more difficult for you. And then we'll come

00:13:10--> 00:13:52

to the end of your three or four how to name delay. When you leave this world you break your fast of this world and you leave it whatever you will meet Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is the happiness of APD that is a the happiness of a believer with Allah subhanho wa Taala I went through these challenges I went through these problems Allah, Here I am to receive my reward. So let us make this month of Ramadan a lesson and a madrasa for us for the rest of our lives. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the ability to do that. And we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us the tekoa that we are supposed to achieve from the month of Ramadan or sallallahu wasallam opelika ala nabina
