una de respected scholars, elders, beloved brothers in Islam.

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

Upon one occasion prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam claimed on the member any address to the Sahaba and he say Mother yes

00:01:05--> 00:01:12

what is it that is hating towards you and what is it that you are heading towards? So the Sahaba started looking

00:01:13--> 00:01:16

again he repeated mother you're stuck below

00:01:18--> 00:01:22

what is it that you are heading towards and what is coming towards you?

00:01:23--> 00:02:07

who stood up and say to him that oh prophet of Allah is they were he being revealed on you is the revelation taking place. Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam repeated mother must be looking my mother tested alone, what is it that is heading towards you and what is it that you are heading towards? And then prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied it is the month of Ramadan that is heading towards you and it is the month of Ramadan towards which you are so from this study, we can understand the importance and the significance that the month of Ramadan holds and Subhanallah through the month of Ramadan. This oma has achieved so many lessons inshallah we'll

00:02:07--> 00:02:34

go through certain incidents from the time of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam in order to extract lessons from those incidents, for example, you know, we don't give importance to Soho we don't give important specially the young generation they want to stay awake till three o'clock two o'clock super they want to skip but look at how much importance prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam gave to upon one occasion, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hydra

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

Allahu

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

Allah tala who,

00:02:40--> 00:02:50

who are having some rule, can you hear my voice clearly or it is too loud? It's clear here. Alright, so they were having some as they were having to hooroo some good meat.

00:02:51--> 00:02:52

So

00:02:53--> 00:02:55

who was the Moses we used to give?

00:02:56--> 00:03:08

So he was walking by. So I said to them that the time of surah is about to end Can you people stop eating, they kept eating even Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam they kept at that below and then he came back he said one

00:03:10--> 00:03:38

prophet of Allah, it is morning you're still eating. So Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam stopped eating. And then Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam said, they don't belong. If you didn't take a sermon, Allah subhanho wa Taala, then the time of surah was going to prolong but just because you look at the some of Allah, Allah Allah loves you so much that Allah subhana wa Taala change this situation into reality, the time of surrender. That was the status of other villages.

00:03:39--> 00:04:06

And they are such friends of Allah. When they say something Allah, Allah loves them so much that Allah subhanho wa Taala changes their statements and their words into reality. For example, upon one occasion Hadhrat Abu Zubaydah radi Allahu taala who was cooking some meat goat meat in a big pot, and prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was passing by. So prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that all your VEDA

00:04:07--> 00:04:52

Give me the front part, the front legs, the front part of the goat meat prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam loved the front part of the goat the legs. So and Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam also loved milk. He used to drink a lot of milk prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam loved the sweet Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu did some love ajua dates prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam loved fresh roti fresh bread, not still fresh bread whenever he found the fresh bread he ate. If it wasn't fresh, he never used to complain, but he used to avoid the only occasion when prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ate a still roti is still bread was on the conquest of Makkah

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

Other than that, he always ate fresh rutile fresh bread. So you people should go home and tell your wife that it was asuna

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam t fresh food, right? But if your wife is clever, she's going to tell you that it was also a tsunami of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam to not complain about food, whatever he found he used to eat it. But make sure when you put it we have to understand brothers you know, in the month of Ramadan Alhamdulillah our mothers and sisters they do so much for us. Honestly speaking, they wake up pasta or they prepare food for us at the time of e 30. They prepare food for so we should appreciate their efforts, isn't it we should go and praise them even if it is not good. Sometimes you should praise Alhamdulillah The food was tasty but make

00:05:36--> 00:05:54

sure the food is from your house like this man upon one occasion. He had a buyer like this that prays the food of your wife. So he went home and there was food there. So Mashallah he ate the food. And he praised it that the food was amazing today. The wife said

00:05:55--> 00:06:09

since 20 years I've been cooking for you you ever praised my food. Today the food has come from the neighbors in your praising the food. So make sure when you praise the food, it is from your house. Nevertheless, I was talking about

00:06:11--> 00:06:17

you and him cooking the goat meat. So prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked for the front part. When

00:06:19--> 00:06:56

I heard that he gave him one piece Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he kept it on the side. Then Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said, Give me another one. Nabi sallallahu, Alayhi Salam at he kept it on the side, then Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said, Give me another one. So the VEDA said that a prophet of Allah, a goat only has two front part there are no three, four and five front paths. So the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam replied that oh beta, if you did an interview, and if you kept giving Allah subhanho wa Taala, who was going to provide for me, so some friends of Allah subhanho wa Taala, such that when they say something, Allah subhana wa Taala

00:06:56--> 00:07:40

changes into reality. So before we mess up with someone, we should be very careful who we are dealing with, especially if it is a friend of Allah, we should be very careful. So I was saying that there are certain incidents, the first incidence was about to look at this another incidence of Allah fasting has been made so easy for this woman so easy. We don't have to fast for the whole day, break the fast and start another fast Did you know that the oma before us had to fast break the fast and start the fast immediate straightaway initially, even in our Sharia, that was the same thing. We used to fast break our fast then the moment a person goes to sleep the fastest started there was

00:07:40--> 00:07:49

nothing like so. That was that was the initial Command of Allah subhanaw taala. But upon one occasion by the Asahi by the name of 100 pesos, he

00:07:50--> 00:08:18

was a farmer. He came from work. He told the wife to prepare something for his car, the wife said there is nothing there is nothing to eat. Let me go and find something. So as he was waiting for his 30 he went to sleep. Now according to that initial Sharia command, his second facet started he woke up, the wife came shouting you started another facet of yours and you didn't even break your first fast. The next afternoon in Zohar, Salah

00:08:19--> 00:08:43

fainted because of hunger, he couldn't take the hunger and he fainted. So prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked the people that what was the reason and the people told him that he didn't break his fast yesterday. So that is when Allah subhanho wa Taala heard the cry of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and give us the gift of Soho that is also who came into shell was before that the oma before there was nothing like so called

00:08:44--> 00:09:22

another Sahabi came to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he says that oh prophet of Allah, whilst fasting, I ended up having body contact with my wife. When a person is fasting, there are certain things he is supposed to avoid, right? And one of them is to not have body contact with your wife. So prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam looked at him, and then he smiled. And then he said to him, okay, you will have to expiate, you will have to pick a fara and the kafala is go free a slave. So let's have he said that a prophet of Allah I don't have enough money to free a slave Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said, Okay, go feed 60 people. He said, I don't even have

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

money for that to go and feed 60 people. He said, Okay, go fast for 60 days. He said, I fasted for one day, and I ended up making this mistake. What if I have to fast for 60 days? What will happen to me? So Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said, okay, we waited, another Sahabi came with 60 dates. So prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called this first Sahabi. And he told him that take the 60 days and go and give it to the poor people. That is your expiation, so that Sahabi tells the Prophet of Allah that oh prophet of Allah, I do not know of anyone in this community who is more deserving of this than myself.

00:10:00--> 00:10:32

Let me pay my expression to myself. So profit moments are allowed some laughed and he said that okay it is only it is only allowed in your case you can have these beads. So Subhanallah look at this incident, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave us the command through Allah subhanho wa Taala that in the month of Ramadan during the day a person has to avoid from certain things things but at night, everything that is halal for him in a normal day is halal in the month of Ramadan. At night. It is

00:10:33--> 00:11:15

so respected elders and friends. These incidents are teaching us one thing that this man is a significant man. This man is a blessed man and we should benefit the most from this man. We should try and benefit the most Let it not happen that the people who were there with us in the previous Ramadan they are not with us anymore. Let us not be from those people that next year we are from the same people and we haven't benefited from this master. May Allah subhanho wa Taala guide us May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us respected elders and friends. Another important aspect which we are supposed to look at in the month of Ramadan is the aspect of tarawih Alhamdulillah this gift of

00:11:15--> 00:11:57

tarawih performing extra prayers at night after Isha Salah was not given to any oma before us is only this oma which has been given the gift of tarawih it comes in narrations that in the month of Ramadan, Hydra gibreel Allah Salam used to come and he used to read out his Quran to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam used to stand up and then he used to read out his Quran to other jubril Ali Salaam. It is a great son of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I says this the the message which I'm about to give, I get the same message last week in Lusaka and one of the messages that we can be from that generation where

00:11:57--> 00:12:36

something wrong is taking place. And there is no one to guide with sympathy, love and kindness. I don't know how is the situation here but sometimes in some of the markets in Lusaka, you see youngsters at the age of 1213 moving in at the time of tarara and having a nice chillin smoking Mashallah. There is no one to say anything to them. I am repeating with love and kindness that all my sons let us go let us perform Salah Oh my son come Let me buy ice cream for you. Let's have ice cream from ice cream. Let's go for our tarawih Santa. So this is one of the greatest sooner prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the month of Ramadan, which we shouldn't abandon. Another

00:12:36--> 00:12:42

important aspect, which we have to look at in the month of Ramadan is the aspect of Quran.

00:12:43--> 00:13:30

Allah Allah says in the Holy Quran, Shahada Ramadan, a lady on Zilla Hill Quran, the way the month of Ramadan is defined in Quran is through in Quran is through Quran. Allah Allah didn't say that the month of Ramadan is the month in which you have to fast no at first he says that the month of Ramadan is the month in which you have to pray for and then he talks about fasting and how difficult is it for us to finish one Quran in the whole month of Ramadan among Shafi used to finish 64 on in the month of Ramadan, Imam Abu hanifa used to finish 50 Quran in Ramadan let us be practical, we are not saying we have to be like him. I'm Shafi and Imam Abu hanifa those people had blessings in their

00:13:30--> 00:14:17

timeline. We don't have those same blessings. But one simple thing that we can do is to finish five pages of foreign after every only five pages and you will see as the time of the SHA one c para is completed. If it is a 13 lines Quran you might have to read it seven pages if it is a 15 lines Quran you might have to read five stages after every Salah in one day you're going to finish one step. So do we all make the intention that we are going to finish at least one Quran in the month of Ramadan. inshallah Now one last important aspect for which I almost left seven minutes Yeah, I left seven minutes and the reason why I left seven minutes for it is because through this aspect, Allah

00:14:17--> 00:14:21

subhanho wa Taala has spread Islam a lot It is a kind of

00:14:22--> 00:14:29

Can anyone guess what is that aspect which we have to look at in the month of Ramadan? Anyone

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

know let me guide you the aspect of giving out in the month of Ramadan of giving charity there So firstly, we have to give out our circuit our mandatory charity. Secondly, a general donation a general giving in the path of Allah giving to the people in need, taking care of orphans taking care of widows, we should do it a lot in the month of Ramadan. Because that was the

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

Practice of the pious predecessors in the month of Ramadan, they used to do certain things a lot and one of them was giving feeding people. That is why when you go for Allah, you will see, you will see that there is one chef coming here, and he's telling you, oh, you have to sit on my desk, and another chef will come over you have to sit on my desk and fight with each other. You know, this person has to sit on my desk because of generosity. generosity was one of the greatest prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Look at this. Have you heard of this man by the name of Hatim type. This man came before prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he was so generous, that

00:15:39--> 00:16:28

Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has praised this man for his generosity. When the people of Arab used to read out poems in their homes when they used to talk about generosity. They used to give the example of how to tie so hot in Thai was once asked that Oh, hottie, have you seen someone in your life who's more generous than you? Who gives more than you? So I said that I met one person who was more generous than me. So panela the people used to give example of how to tie and how to tie saying that I met someone who was more generous than me. Who was that man up on one occasion, Hatim Thai was traveling with few of his friends. And on his journey, he stopped at the

00:16:28--> 00:17:18

house of one village. So the villager went outside, he got a goat. And he came with the mother's, the this part of the goat, and he presented in front of the visitors. Everyone a inhotim tie, just out of praise says that it is very tasty. So this men, this villager went outside again, he got another good he presented the mothers third, fourth, fifth, he got 10 goats, and he presented the mothers of all the 10 goats in front of him that my visitor liked it. So let me present it in front of him. So that men was more generous me. So this question has told him that that is just 10 goats. He only gave you 10 goats. What did you give him in return? So how can I replied that I gave him 100

00:17:18--> 00:17:41

cameras as a gift in return. So this question is no hottie. This means that you are more generous because that man only gave you 10 goes, he cut 10 Gods for you. And you gave him 100 camels? I said, No, no, no, no, no, no. He gave me everything of what he had. And I gave him little of what I had. So he is more generous.

00:17:42--> 00:18:23

Now this was the story of hotting. Now let us come at the time of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the time of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam few captives are presented in front of Prophet Muhammad. And amongst the captive, there is one lady, she stands up and she says that oh prophet of Allah, treat me with dignity and honor, treat me with respect. So Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam says to her that you are a captive and you are commanding me like, Who are you? She says that I am the daughter of heart in Thai. My father was a generous man, he is to assist a lot of people. I am the daughter of that had to die to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam

00:18:23--> 00:19:02

said, Indeed, your father was a generous man, or daughter of heart in Thai go, I'm forgiving you because of the generosity of your father. So this was the daughter of heart. Obviously Like father like daughter, she says that oh prophet of Allah, you have forgiven me, but what about my people? What about my people? So Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said to her indeed, you are the daughter of Fatima, I forgive you because of the generosity of your Father, God forgiving your people because of your generosity. Then she went with her people to Adeeb inhotim, her brother, and who was running away profit from Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was not ready to accept Islam. She

00:19:02--> 00:19:40

went to Saudi and she told him that Oh god, what generosity are we talking about? What generosity Have you seen in our father? Go and look at the generosity generosity of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came and then he accepted Islam. So when a person is generous, it becomes a means of Dawa. It becomes a means of spreading of Islam, and at the time of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam forget about Muslims, before prophet moments in the time of Prophet moments are some forget about Muslims, even the non Muslims used to give even the non Muslims used to assist a lot of people. One last story in Shall I will finish the Bible.

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

You know, there was one king by the name of husa Parvez this man is the same man who was sent a letter by prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to accept Islam the king at that time, he told the letter at first, but later on, he accepted Islam. And Allah subhanho wa Taala made his kingdom such a vast king.

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

He made him such a great ruler. So this story is about this man. This cluster of purveyors was seated in his palace with his wife, with the Ministry of Home Affairs, which we all have at our home, he was sitting with his wife, the fish official man came,

00:20:17--> 00:20:34

and a fisherman came with a fish, and he gave it to this king. So the king told his people give him 4000 dinar, you know, how much is 4000 dinar that is in millions of millions of water just for one fish. So when he says give him 4000 dinar, the wife,

00:20:35--> 00:20:39

you know, 4000 for such a small fish, what are you doing?

00:20:40--> 00:21:16

So the king said that, look, I'm the king, once I give you, I cannot take it back. I cannot take it back. So I've said I have one solution for you. You know, you ask him if the fish is a male or female. If he says it is a male, you tell him I wanted a female fish. If he says it is a female fishes, you tell him I wanted male fish. So the king called him again. And he asked him, What is the gender of your fish? So the fisherman said it is both male and female, that the king said give him another 4000 lira. So now another 4000

00:21:18--> 00:22:00

from four to eight, now this fishermen started going as he was going one coin from the coins which he was taking dropped on the floor. So this Fisher, a man a human is Harry's Yes, he he he's greedy. Even if he's going with all those coins. He didn't leave one coin behind. He went and he picked it up. So the wife said to the king, look, look at him how greedy he is. He's not even leaving one coin coin behind. So the king said, okay, call him back. So the king called him back and he asked him, Why didn't you ever leave one coin behind? So the fisherman replied that oh my king, this coin has your picture on it. If it stays on the flow, someone has to step on it. It will be disrespectful. It

00:22:00--> 00:22:16

is disrespectful. So I picked it out that there is the picture of my king on the coin. So the king said give him another 4000 so Han Allah even the non Muslims at that time used to give so we should live from those people may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the ability to practice on whatever has been said Amen.
