Okay, we similar manner. Hey, WA salatu salam ala mode Rahmatullah al Amin and Abby Now have you been on Mohammed is that Allahu Allahu ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salim Ababa.
Thank you very much for granting me this opportunity to be in your presence, speaking about a guest that is going to visit us for a while in sha Allah. And as I always mentioned that there's always blessed by Allah subhanaw taala with opportunities.
Allah subhanho wa Taala promised that he will make us the best in the hereafter and that necessitate effort from ourselves. But Allah is marked out of his infinite mercy and blessings. He granted his opportunities and events and also second
circumstances whereby a person can do a bit and a little bit Allah's motto granted huge reward, which he can supersede those in a region that came before us. Fasting is one of these opportunities given to us by Allah subhanho wa Taala A man asked Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam what is the best thing to be done in order to please Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, Ali Can you see me in the hula? Allah Who said I advise you to fast for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala because I couldn't see anything similar to that. Fasting is one of the best acts of worship that somebody can do to please Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam I said, coal or Iron Man, Libya, Allah Who Allahu Illa so our Illa cellfina Holy one IGV every righteous deed you're doing to please Allah subhanaw taala is yours, except for the case of the fasting. So if you think deeply you will understand that there has to be a secret because Allah subhanaw taala says in the last part of Surah Tila and will in the Salah, T also ki wema Hi Oh mama T Lillahi Rabbil aalameen la sharika OB Delica Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, tell them my prayer, and my life and my act of worship, my sacrifice, whatsoever I do is supposed to be for Allah subhanaw taala alone. But here Allah smart Allah is
saying, or surah Allah Azza Allahu alayhi wa sallam is saying that every single deed you do to please Allah subhanaw taala is yours, except for the case of the first thing Allah says fasten his mind and I'm the one who will be rewarding you for that. There has been there is something secret between you and Allah subhanaw taala when you fast and by Allah subhanaw taala it does exist, you know, because it is one of the most secret activities that only Allah smarter can confirms it.
Only Allah smarter can confirm it. So if you do truly for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala you will be addressed by Allah subhanaw taala in this manner. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah has monetarily word the person that he's talking about fasting, so he said Allah subhanaw taala grant you your reward multiplied by 10 up to 700 times. So when you fast for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala Allah azza wa jal multiplied up to 700 times, you know, in Ramadan, this goes it goes beyond that. And that's why the Rasul Allah said Allah Allah Himself has said he'd Allah, I think cathedra several motivate multiplication by Allah subhanho wa taala, which only Allah subhanaw taala
knows when you fast for his sake. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah subhanaw taala says it Allah, so find the holy one RGBW except cm, and I will be the one who will reward you. And Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the reason why he addressed you in this way, because you stay away from you natural desires, you stay away from it, you stay away from drinking, you stay away from sexual relationship between you and your spouse for the sake of who for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala
that's actually the definition of fasting. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went on to say that Luca Luffy promessa me up the harbor and Allah He Mindray Hill misc. The bad smell that comes out of the mouth of somebody who fasts for the sake of Allah is more pleasant in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala than the smell of the misc.
And then he says Lisa Farhatullah, the one who first has two moments of happiness, the one who first has two moments of happiness, Farhatullah in the factory, when you break your fast you will be happy, and that's a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala we all witnessed this. You don't need me to explain to you how happy is a person when they will add in makes the other you know, everyone is happy waiting for that moment when he uttered the first word of that then so that we can break fast as a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala to make you happy after completing your first or we take it in in other way that the promise that Allah Allah
NAU Selma is talking about the completion of the first thing in the month of Ramadan when we break our fast for the sake of aid. That was the greatest happiness in this life. This one is insignificant if you compare it with the one that will come afterwards. And I want you to feel it because we are heading towards the day, which is the most difficult today. The most difficulty.
Whoever is meant to be happy on that day, this is the most successful person. There's a hardest time that can pass a humankind and the incidents that will take place on that day are detail by Allah small town, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you have a lot of momentum that day that will take the consciousness of a person which Allah is going to detail that. So on this day, you're going to be taken back to Allah Sparta for accountability.
And you know what Allah smart Allah says, I'm going to summarize to you the situation. In a statement of one of the scholars when he was addressing one of the kings, the king asked him, he said, Please, I just want you to tell me my position in the hereafter.
He said, Sir, you're going to be one of the two people.
Either a righteous feet person, if you're a righteous person in this life, you will be like a missing person who loves his family for so long. And now he's coming back to them.
Did you hear that? He said, You are one of the two people on Earth. If you want to know your position. Look at your status and relationship between you Allah's Murata, you're going to be one of the two people, either a righteous person or a wrongdoer. He said, If you're a righteous person, don't worry, because in that, on the Day of Judgment, you're going to be nothing but a person who miss his family. You know, he was absent from home for so long. And now he's coming back to meet the loving ones. You know what I'm talking about how much people are becoming happy. And subhanAllah we're, Allahu Allah so much is going to make you like that. And when I look at this statement of
this color, and I related to some of the mentions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, I'm a believer. How Familia is a believer when he reached his his home in paradise. He said when a believer get into the Paradise, he recognizes his house much more greater than the way he recognizes his house here. And there will be the greatest welcoming because Allah subhanaw taala says,
he says Walmart are eager to
get to Kelowna he mean coolibah scatola imagine the first day you get into the paradise and you're welcomed by WHO, first and foremost the angels, you know, Allah is meant to welcome Uverse better than the angels everyone, Allah smarter says they will be saying to us, salam alayka, the masala to Infinia la casa da.
This is this status and the situation of a righteous person. May Allah smarter makers among them. As for the other ones, he said, you're going to be like a runaway slave, a slave that run away from the master. Go and read the history of the slavery in the past to see who was a slave in the past.
They are, they are less than the shoe lace, you know that a person can fight you because you touch his shoes, but you might kill his slave and he will not say anything.
The slave is useless. No, they have no value at all. Only after the arrival of Islam then the slave was considered as human beings and a brother to the Muslims.
Look at this when a slave ran away and the master looked for him for so long, and for ages. And then finally they got when they brought him back to the Master. What do you think will happen to him? You know what will happen? So he said, either you are a righteous person, you will be like this, or you are around the world, then you will be like a slave that ran away from the master and now they brought him back to them and you know how much punishment this person is going to go through.
The best example, belongs to Allah subhanaw taala we didn't give Allah subhanaw taala these type of examples. He says, Well I feel like I've ever had
What are you?
Nobody punished like the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala so my brain says, we all know who we are.
With no jobs, you know who you are, what kind of relationship you have with Alaska you know that you know, you don't need somebody to to tell you go and sit down and reflect upon your life and see how much tragedies you have. And imagine today you have it you're taken back to Allah subhanaw taala for accountability and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said that they will come. Allah is meant to bring you back to him. You will be standing before Allah subhanaw taala and there will be nothing at your right side except
you need at your left side there is nothing except your deed and in front of you that is nothing except the hellfire. There is no going back at all. And no tournament. Nobody is between you and Allah subhanaw taala This is the greatest moment in your life and this is what you should be reflecting upon you remember it all the time. Allah says I'm in half I'm a coma Robbie, wanna hang up? zonula Why my camera be?
Because I'm telling if you have a man in your heart and you're going to sit down and remember the moment you'll be brought by Allah smarter to be standing in front of him alone. For accountability to answer the questions from Allah smarter about your life. You know Rasul Allah, Allah Azza, Merced lent azul Academy Abdullah Hassan Arwa, you will never move from your position until Allah is going to ask you about four things. You want to be Christian, but Allah smarter about your life, about your youth, about your wealth, and about your knowledge, what did you do with them? So the entire life of yours you're going to be Krishna about that.
Imagine Allah is going to get you back reflecting on your life right now. Do you have answer to these questions? If the answer is negative Wallah, you have to reflect and change your attitude and change your mind.
Life is very dangerous in this case, if you don't fix it, but if you fix it, it will be good and it'd be nice, you know,
sort of flex and remember this moment.
This moment is the worst. If you don't have answers to the questions from Allah subhanho wa taala. So some are going to be trouble from this moment and some are going to be happy. Allah subhana wa Taala said in that hadith, he says Lisa, the Prophet said Allahu Allahu salah, said, Lisa, if you have two moments of happiness, one in this life, we already witnessed that. Well for hatting indelicato Roby and the second for her the second happiness is the one that you will be getting by Allah's mother you will be given by Allah's mantra when you meet Allah subhanahu totalis panela.
Imagine that this moment, Allah is what is going to make you happy. And Allah is not like his creation. Allah places this happiness and choice on a place that deserves it.
To get it, when Allah is going to grant you this, there will be no change. You know, I tell you something, I changed somebody's child something he changed but the Creator when he put it, it works on that face.
Allah small child doesn't change. So always remember these members, sisters, when you've asked for the sake of Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah promised to make you happy on on the Day of Judgment.
These are some of the values and the importance of fasting mentioned by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there are many others which the time will not permit us to mention that
when it comes to Ramadan, Ramadan is a special moment.
Fasting is highly recommended by the Sharia. Fasten in the month of Ramadan is not just a recommendation, but it is a pillar. It is not just an obligation, no but it is a pillar in Islam, which means your Islam will not be accepted. Unless if you accept it. Your Islam will not be accepted unless if you practice it, then you will be a true believer in in Islam.
So that's fast enough wisdom here it is enough to show you how great is the first in the month of Ramadan. But as I said, the month is so special. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, either duckula Ramadan, food whatever I will, gentlemen, when Ramadan arrives, the doors of Paradise will be open and the doors of hell will be locked.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said sofidel to share with you know mother decision, the devils and the arrogance and the evil from amongst the shell feed and the genes they're going to be changed.
That's means the influence of the devil is going to be restricted to the lowest level. Now what left is you and your attitude and your manners? Because Chapin already planted in you Allah
to the reflection of that remains and this the answer to the question that people always ask if Shavon is chained up in Ramadan How come we see people still committing the sins?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not talk about Allah subhanaw taala tie in the shaping of NGS you have two types of Sheltie Shelton of INS three types actually or even more than that, sheltering ins and you have Shatin.
And you also within yourself you have this evil attitudes, you know, that you have to fight a lot to curb your soul from doing that which Allah Sparta doesn't want. So before Ramadan and Ramadan Chapin is pushing you so that you can go and do it.
But inside Ramadan, that evil adages remains is still there. That's why somebody says Shavon works before and after Ramadan. But inside Ramadan, his agents are replacing him.
He doesn't come and work but he has his agent which we also participate in that. So you have to try your best but down Allah smart Allah informed you that the shouting, they have no influence on you. So it's up to you. You cannot blame anyone for not doing that which is supposed to do in Ramadan is it's a fear it's a shouting, Amara teacher, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, I said,
an angel will come forward and make this announcement to every Muslim, although he's not here but we believe that every single day of Ramadan this is happening that an angel is analysing in the morning, or the time Allah smarter send send him to say what, whoever is willing to please Allah Smarty should come forward because this is the month that he shouldn't be making an effort to do that. And whoever is thinking of committing sin, you should stay away from this because it doesn't fit this month. And Allah subhanaw taala free people from hell in this month, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in every night of the month of Ramadan, Allah smarta is freeing
people from going to hell. That's the reason why degreed Allah His salah, he said to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ragi my brain.
He said coolamon Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, it says me, may Allah make this person to be the real loser, the one who met one of his parents, but still he did not go to paradise.
Hala, we see this nowadays, right? Parents have been disrespected.
Parents have been accused, you know, a lot a lot.
If it doesn't go to assassination, also
Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam indicated that this is one of the easiest way for you to make it to paradise to make your parents happy.
That's what he says three, the law theory, the quality, the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala lies in the pleasure of the parents. If they're happy with you, Allah Smith is going to be happy with you. If they are not happy with you, Allah Sparta is not going to be happy with you. Unless if that lack of happiness was based on you obeying Allah subhanaw taala and they don't like it, then it will not affect you. Because Allah subhanaw taala says, if they fight you to go against the law of Allah subhanaw taala to commit Szybko to go against that which Allah is going to doesn't want,
then you should not obey them. But other than that, in the dunya matters, the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, even if they asked you to go out of your dunya instead go out of your dunya for their sake, they deserve everything from you, and you cannot compensate them. Whatever you do, you can compensate them.
The only thing you can do is to keep making dua for them, and to make them happy all the time. So he says, and may Allah subhanaw taala make this person to be the real loser, the one who's your name is mentioned who your name is mentioned, but unfortunately he did not make a lot of you how many times you hear the name Rasul Allah, Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but he refused to say sallallahu alayhi salam. Nobody says you should raise up your voice and say it very loud, but unless you use your tongue and say it you know, Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, nobody ever honored you and sacrificed his life more than Rasulullah wala, including your parents and whoever,
amongst government. Nobody ever did want their suit allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did for you.
He put his life into a danger and risk you know, he was almost going to be killed many times, you know how many times he has been looked for by those enemies to kill him. You know, they traveled, they broke his teeth. They broke some part of his head. You know, he fell into the trap. All of this because of you. They throw stone on him he bled you know all of these things you you already know what I'm talking about. For who for you so that the religion will reach you peacefully.
But then his name is mentioned. You don't have time to say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Anything Allah's motto, let it go. Never. That's the reason why God said Rocky Mount from Ray, the character fella, Mr. Laker.
And for your information you as a student of knowledge, the scholars mentioned that that abbreviation that we have in our articles and our thesis shouldn't be mentioned in the case of Rasul Allah, they said, This is disrespect. You don't shorten your name. You don't make the name of your father short, you know, and especially nowadays we do have the clock is all about copy and paste. Why can't you just face it?
The scholars said either you write it completely, or you leave it empty without writing anything so that the reader when he comes he read it by himself.
That's Rasul Allah Allah says he deserves everything from you
And that saying, all right and so Allahu Allahu wa sallam is an act of worship.
We should always remember that. And the lastly he says, let this person be the real loser, the one who reached Ramadan but unfortunately his sins are not forgiven by Allah subhanho wa Taala
and I can understand that and I guess everyone can understand that because if he says every night there are people that Allah smarter is making them free from hell, they will never go to hell every night. What does that mean? The first night Allah Sparta opens the door and you miss it Shala not you but somebody missed it. Second day also Allah opens the door and somebody miss it 3030 chances have been given to this entity and he burned them all. It remember that is not that Allah asked me to give him two or one or two chances no 30 times the last one is opening the door and he's missing them one after the other.
What else you you want for this person?
You can understand why this person is a real loser because all of the chances and ability have been given to him by Allah. Michelle Pina Chino, you know, the dose that can lead a person to evil or restricted. You see that Madonna is so blessed by Allah squatter, even the wrongdoers also they try to monitor the activities in the month of Ramadan.
So that you will get motivated right, the month of the month of April. So brothers sisters, there are a lot to be said concerning the month of Ramadan. And as such, my advice to each and every one of us is to reflect upon that which I mentioned earlier that life is not guaranteed.
And this life is temporary. We're going to leave
Allah who eagerly
hundreds if not 1000s of people 1000s of people used to be with us last year but they will not be with us. You know how many days left for Ramadan? One or two days right? Believe it or not only Allah knows how many amongst the Muslim they smell it but they will not see it you know
we didn't know whether we're going to be amongst them on our winner no Allah He some people died right under the Ramadan begins you know, they see it and then they go
we also were like that and as such
a smart person to say
let me make this Ramadan as if this will be the last Ramadan I will see my life because it is enough for me to learn the lesson from my predecessors, those people who witnessed the last Ramadan but now they couldn't see it.
A smart person should make this decision. And as such Member Assistance you should be prepared for that.
You should be prepared to set in from now. Fix your intention. Fix your attitude, cleanse your heart, make it appeal, be righteous do everything that will bring you closer to Allah subhanaw taala close the gap and the barrier between you and your Muslim brothers and sisters
intensify the amount of ability in Dawa you know to bridge the gap and to maintain the unity among the Muslims
and be prepared for that. When Ramadan comes
the first and the most important thing you should be doing to make this Ramadan life is to fast.
The most important thing to be done is to fast. Too fast. When I say too fast it mean too fast in the way Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I used to fast faster means a tab booty a little bit in psyche I didn't move Irati mental advisory in a rural bishops
to worship Allah when I say to worship Allah, there's a key in this definition. If it doesn't exist, fasting doesn't exist. Because I must stop eating and drinking because the doctor asked me to stop eating and drinking and I'm not fasting. So intention is needed. That means I'm doing it for Allah subhanaw taala in order
to stay away from what eating, drinking and having a sexual relationship and then alike from the rising of the dawn until sunset.
And to fast also according to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. How did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I used to fast he used to delay this
to the last minute. He used to delay the Sahara to the last minute
in the suicide in the beasts that Allahu alayhi wa sallam didn't let those texts and the Hadees from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or they indicate that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I used to move this a hole until the last minute
whereby the by the time he finishes the hole, you have only a few seconds for Bilal to set up and make the oven for the Fajr.
There is no gap between the Sahara of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam according to the authentic narration and then of the biller
Why Some scholars mentioned that between his hole and the oven I mean the time he begins to suffer and the oven is the time that you can finish recite in 50 i And
that's misery talking about five to 10 minutes. And then the prophets Allah sama will, will begin his fast and he said, This OMA will keep receiving blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala as long as they delay this
as long as they delay this ahora and they hasten, you know, they do it as quickly as possible. They've thought so this house should be should be delayed. And what what should you eat into the hole? And this is my personal advice my brain says because fasting according to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we believe in that fasting is what is Jana Jana means shield. You know, protection. Amor, whatever you use to protect yourself from the weapons that comes from the enemies.
So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, Yeah, Marsha Shabbat, the Minister of farming cool Berta violators, I was
fine, who are not the real boss, it was Julian Farraj. He says he was talking to the youth. It says whoever can afford marriage, Alba means you have ability financially. And you also have ability to approach a spouse sexually. You have these two abilities, then the prophets Allah Allah Who says I recommend you that you should marry. Why because Sharia doesn't want you to go and stretch your sight and look at those whom Allah subhanaw taala made them prohibited upon you
to look at the opposite agenda. So what will happen naturally we do that there has to be a barrier or something that can help you to maintain the good manners in this regard. So Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and it can be the watch Mary,
because Mary, marriage is the best and to help you to lower your gaze and to protect your private heart. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he should do that because marriage will help you to do this.
He said if you cannot do this family can be so then you fast because so fast and it is going to
act as a shield
against this human natural desire.
That's the first protection you have. So the prophets Allah sama said, it is Jimena. It helps you to lower your gaze. Why? Because you will be busy with righteousness, you will not remember all of those things. I think this is experienced by almost every one of us. But my question is why nowadays, people are asking
me for people who will tell you that we first we first we first we first but still the desire is so strong.
I don't want to question the intention of those people. But I question the way they fast.
Because what is faster to stay away from eating and drinking?
What is the benefit of staying away from eating and drinking? While during this whole I ate the whole foods at home you know, until Maghrib I don't feel anything
we eat and eat and eat and eat up to the time that you are sure that insha Allah before, you will never get into trouble by become angry.
That's why it doesn't work. You know, because when you eat these natural desires, they come laziness you have this desire, you have all of these things. So when you first correctly in the way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I used to do how did he use to do
he says it is always good that the Sahaba of a believer should be what a terminal FUTA Mirage
key I don't ask you to go for this but if you can go for this as the best way to do it to the Soho take few to Murad FUTA Murat and drink water and does it.
But unless if you don't have the timer, you do don't eat a lot.
Eat them which you need until you are satisfied. When I says you are satisfied. I don't mean the satisfactory that means you cannot put anything anymore you know don't misunderstand.
It's a bit you know, drink water. Relax. So that this natural desire you know will be gone during the time on your fasting.
Allah wish my bread sisters you will listen to this because only then you will feel it. And this takoda Allah is what I mentioned, Inshallah, we'll be able to get the place in your heart.
The Prophet said, Allahu Allahu Simone, he breaks his fast. He also does the same thing.
And this is also my advice to you. My brain says when you break your fast, make sure that you don't eat a lot. Take a bit of time
Not together with water. And then wait. How many people you know I'm telling you the truth how many people you see in the masjid praying with them or sleeping with the imam in therapy.
As well sometimes you have you know, you got to sleep you have to make sure that the one next is what is so strong because you will lean to him after a while. If you want to avoid this, the best way is not to eat a lot after after maghrib. And they say it also,
naturally your body is not ready for heavy food at that moment.
One of our scholars said if you can just eat tomorrow, because it will possibly be digested within an hour. This is what your body needs, so that it will make it ready for the heavy foods to get in. But what do we do? The first time the Maghrib comes, we eat everything. Sometimes you go to the masjid holding your stomach because you have some problems, you know, for sure you're going to sleep with the mom in the throwing prayer.
So these are some advice, and that's why fasting works with them. And in most instances in these days of ours, it doesn't work with us. That's the reason why I said fast like Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So, the most important thing to be done to make Ramadan alive is to fast. One of the best acts of worship to be done is a night prayers.
The night prayers if a person can do it at home, some scholars said you do it at home. Unless if the massages are going to be neglected then you come to the massage it taraweeh is something which was done by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as part of the night prayer because you have the night prayer pm Elaine and the tahajjud you know all of them their night prayers. You do them in Ramadan, you call them tearaway. You do them in some part of the night you call it to hedge it but all of them their night prayer. The prophets Allah Allah is cinema did not differentiate between this and that. And checklist. I mean, Jamia says it doesn't have a limit when it comes to the amount
but it has a limit when it comes to the time according to the seller for Salah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I've never make it like that. But we do believe we do believe that the best is what was chosen by chose by Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which is to pray. 11 But when you find a masjid, praying more than that, I advise you to say and do with them and do not go until the end of the prayer.
Because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever prays with the Imam until the end of the prayer, Allah smarta is going to forgive all of his sins, the past sins that he had committed, Allah is going to forgive them.
So don't leave the masjid and go home and then pray.
The nine prayers that the best prayers, the best Sunnah prayers that somebody can do to please Allah subhanho wa taala. The hadith of Gibreel confirms that when Jabril alayhi salam told Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it says,
Yeah, Muhammad, he said, live as long as you wish. But you should know that a day will come you will die, and love whomsoever you wish, but you should know that a day will come you will live this person and do whatever you want. Allah is what is going to judge you based on that. And he said, You should know that you can only gain these high rankings and noble positions in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala through the night prayer. So I really advise you, you shouldn't miss it. Especially the night prayers during the last 10 days of Ramadan, because Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam used to ask somebody to go and wake up the sisters at home and tell them Aruba Cassia to fit dunya
in Yamakawa when the last 10 days of Ramadan arrives, the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa sallam I used to ask somebody to wake up the sisters at home, asking them to pray because perhaps
you might see somebody who's affairs or concealing this life but in the hereafter last month is going to expose everything. So you want Allah smarter to conceal your secret and judge you in the best way. You should keep the night prayers. This is a indication from the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salallahu Salam. One of the righteous deeds is the Quran recitation of the Quran, which I suggest that if you can or less finish the Quran once at least finish it once. If you want to be among the best unless three times in Ramadan
and go more than that and try also find a time to read Quran with terrible try find a time to read Quran with terrible Ramadan is the month of Quran Quran was revealed in Ramadan and degree leads to come all the way to the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa sallam every day to read Quran with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they used to finish Quran every every every year in Ramadan. He and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then that year the prophets Allah Allah who said Emma died, you really came twice to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So my brothers sisters take this opportunity. And as some of us away from the book of Allah smart had developed this attitude in this
Ramadan May Allah smart Allah grant is good. And the last thing I will mention is the sadaqa
Ah and the aitikaf were mentioned we are making sadaqa is one of the acts of worship. There used to be done by Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam and Ramadan and Sybil Malik said if Ramadan comes Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam our God Bill Haman original masala. He said when Ramadan comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I usually become more generous than the air we breathe Hala. This is so generous you know wherever you go, it chases you. But rasool Allah is Allah sama is more generous than this. He should also participate in that and Allah azza wa jal will grow that which you give to please Allah subhanaw taala until the Day of Judgment, it will never stop
growing. And the last one is aitikaf which you go to the masjid and stay for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala is a very strong devotion that a person does for the sake of Allah. What are you supposed to do? You're supposed to stay in the Moses starting from Fudger right after the fajr prayer this is the time the prophets Allah allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began his aitikaf you know, and it ends when you will see them the month or the moon for for sure. What
are you supposed to be doing? The vicar Allah recitation of the Quran, prayers, or sleep?
No chatting, no talking with others. So that's why if I'm to advise, I will say well, cut your relationship can have your relationship with others for these 10 days, if you decide to make the aitikaf switch of your phones, no chatting with anyone. These are only 10 days, you're going to be with Allah azza wa jal, you have 350 days to go and be with others. Make this for your own self. You need it to Allah, you need it, you need it. When you decide to make it make a real aitikaf. Don't be with friends, except if those friends they'll they are better than you, you know that they will never talk to you then go with them
as somebody who can motivate you.
And lastly, members, sisters, in the last few seconds left, I would like to address the situation in the university or in almost all of the universities in Malaysia, we're going to have Ramadan, you're going to have
extra barrage and exams in Ramadan.
My advice is that a Muslim should be honest to himself.
We know we have time.
I know it's too much pressure on us. But if we are honest to ourselves, we still have time.
give the vast majority of your time to exams, according to what exams needs.
But try speeds sometimes between you and Allah subhanaw taala and don't you ever belittle it? Allah if you don't have a time except to read one page only Allah Sparta knows how much you have. And if your intention is to read more than one page, but unfortunately you couldn't read it because of other responsibilities. Allah is meant to see the intention you might be given a reward of somebody who read it
so what I'm trying to say is just be honest yourself let Allah smarter sees that you are not doing because you can't
not just because exam exists no exam doesn't stop you from the unrighteous deed because we don't read all the time. We don't revise for the exams all the time.
So understand the reality then just say no exams comes in Ramadan banana, this Ramadan I'm not going to be able to do this and that no, do not do that.
Manage your time properly B is in light Allah you will be among those people who will succeed in this month. But as I said, if you cannot do it because of your exams or because of other responsibilities, do understand that that small which you put to please Allah subhanaw taala could be valued in the eyes of Allah smarter in the way you will never expect. So let's wait for that and inshallah after that then I will make a conclusion in sha Allah
I would just make conclusion is
McGraw Hill salatu salam ala Mothra hotel el Amin and the BNF. Habib, Ahmed Hassan Allahu Allahu Allah, Allah, he was suffering he was salam.
Let's take a few moments to conclude insha Allah. So as I was saying, I'm aware of what is going on in most of the universities and schools that we're going to study in Ramadan, and also we have exams in Ramadan. So that's shouldn't be a problem. Many Muslims fought the Battle of Badr and many other battles you know, in in Ramadan.
that's greater than having an examination in Ramadan. So it shouldn't be something that demotivate you from being a better person in the month of Ramadan. As I said, the most important thing is to let Allah subhanaw taala seize your honesty you know what you can do and you know what you can't utilize your time and understand that this is an opportunity that might not be given to you again, can reduce the amount of your sleep and other extra activities which are not part of the requirements stay away from them for a while.
The vast majority of the games and the sport and all of these things cooled down a bit you know, until after Ramadan then you come back to the normal life because we didn't have Ramadan every month. It just comes and goes and as I said we're not sure whether it will come on out. So let Allah's Mercy is that which is in your heart that you don't have time to participate. You know, and personally I do believe if you manage your time properly they even the light Allah you will have a time as a student you don't study all the time. For sure you're gonna have time. We also study we went through the system we know how it is. We live students also we know how it is. So study for the
exam and the rest of the time utilize it for them other
than the rest go unrested if you're working in a place for sure you don't walk like your Makina like machine 10 for hours like that. There are times which you have in a break. There are times agenda doing anything And Alhamdulillah nowadays, by the Grace of Allah subhanaw taala almost every single person has Quran with him, you know in your phones we have these apps, you don't need to carry around with you.
In the past we used to carry around with us but now you don't need to do that. You have the Quran all types of copies you have.
You have although you didn't have although then you can read through the absolute
you don't have
time you still come into the masjid to pray every single prayer read a page you know, make a program for yourself I'm telling a smart person is the one that says I have time because we do have time.
But as I said, if you can do it, then stay away for it and go for the necessities. We have a principle in Islam that if you cannot afford doing something because it is beyond your capability Allah smarter will grant you the reward of that thing if it is your attitude
to good idea that's why if I'm if I'm I wanted to make a to cough but unfortunately my family they really need me to be at home taking care of them is wajib appointment. If I go and do that, that will be greater than making a teacup in the masjid you know that and if something stops you from doing something which you have strong intention to do it Allah smarter, Alessi will grant you the reward of that, that word of intention. And only Allah's mantra values if you don't know how much it is, nobody can say to you this is this this or that no is up to Allah Sparta to reward you with whatever he has. So don't worry at all as long as you cannot have the ability to do it. Don't worry,
do whatever you can Allah says Allah mustard Otto, you can do a bit, do a bit.
The problem is with the person who can do a bit but he doesn't want to do that bit relying upon their excuses. You know, I have this I have that I have this I have that. That's the reason why I said my brother sisters, let's be honest to ourselves, you know you do have sometimes utilize that time even with a little bit hidden light Allah Allah will value it for you.
And also look into the activities. We don't have only recitation of the Quran in Ramadan. We don't have only Sunnah prayers in Ramadan, we have other things which you can do, you can give charity, enjoy participating and giving charity. Say in Salem and engage in
you know, do something, you know, acts of worship, righteous deed, the Lord. The scholar said, Here Theodore Kanuma, Colima, hamdulillah whoever got mineral Amanullah, doing anything that Allah smart, Allah loves and he's pleased with that. How many times do we have a lot? And subhanAllah Imam Malik, when he was addressing this question, he told one of the brothers, he said you should know that not everyone, Allah is going to guarantee my ability to do everything. We have people like to live in America, they talk about him, they said he participated in Jr. He participated in charity. He participated in camera Les and he's one of the greatest callers in in Islam, you know, he has all of
these qualities around him. But he's
is there other people also? I mean, it's everyone like him no. So Imam Malik said you should know that not everyone Allah sports are granted disability, some people Allah smarter, give them strength and power to be part of gambling. Some people they are student of knowledge, they like that and they really active in that some people there in charities, some people that this everyone should realize and should take that which Allah is going to grant him more ability and utilize that. The same should be applicable to Ramadan. So my brothers sisters, I ask Allah smarter to help us to grasp some of these mentioned by us in this place and utilize it in the month of Ramadan and ask Allah
subhanaw taala to help us to see them alone and to be able to practice that which should be done according to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam and ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us among those people who are blessed by forgiveness in this month of Ramadan and also we get freedom from the hell May Allah subhanaw taala help us to see a lot of Ramadan and may Allah is not accepted from us in who ecology Amin and caffeine Subhana Allah Morbihan DECA Chateau La ilaha illa and iStockphoto to really Baraka la sera Wallach marketing
