he was happy as married alumnus and he demo sembler jagruti hasn't either she doesn't obviously want to answer with me we'll see what we can start in. We thank Allah

00:00:31--> 00:00:47

for having gathered us here today. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with demand and to cause his mercy and His second and to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR are they more Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean,

00:00:48--> 00:01:28

if we take a look at the community, we will come to realize that many of those who were with us last year are no longer with us today. And the reality is that we are present we are here we are alive and we are breathing. This is an opportunity from Allah subhanho wa Taala afforded and accorded to us, in order to build our alpha, they have gone and they have taken what they have built for the RTL we need to build for that artheon because we continue to breathe and live and survive. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you

All you will have believed fasting has been prescribed upon you, as it has been prescribed upon upon the previous nations, Laila come to the home so that you may attain God consciousness, we continue to say this year in and year out, we repeat this verse again and again. But what difference have we seen in our lives from the last Ramadan, as our life changed? Have we changed our ways, our habits, the wrong deeds that we are committing and doing, if there is a change, then

00:02:13--> 00:02:31

we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala with achieving something from our gun, if there is absolutely no change, then there is nothing that is being achieved from our own Allah. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us non stop Allah He man and what he said that all

00:02:33--> 00:03:25

the one who was the month of Ramadan was full, amen, believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala. and hoping for reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala, he is forgiven all of these sins, his previous sins are forgiven. So what we should intend is to first our bond, that will ensure that when we exited, our entire slate will be clean. And then we move to the next year. You know, one of the easiest ways of gaining some benefit from the month of Ramadan is to have a firm intention that I have this one bad habit of mine, perhaps you have 10 So I have this one bad habit of mine this year, I'm going to ensure that this one is kicked out of the door and it's gone forever. It never returns. Of course,

you want to have a toggle button or one that is pure insincere, that intends to clear all of your sins and intends you intend to never return to return to any of your sins, but the uncertain demons that all of us have been struggling with for our entire lives. We struggle with them, we strive we give them up and then we go back to them. And then we find that we have a period where perhaps a year or two years have passed and we have left it and then we go back to it. That is the demon that you want to get rid of one simple, make that sincere intention and Allah subhanho wa Taala will help you and empower you. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the ability to practice upon what

00:04:12--> 00:04:23

has been said and to forgive us all to grant us a Ramadan. That is full of forgiveness, I mean, or sallallahu wasallam obama care. I don't know why that he was like being a chameleon.
