AI: Summary © The group discusses their experiences with Islam and the importance of performing five daily Salah as a means of achieving their goals. The training process for Islam is designed to prepare individuals for a life of crisis, rather than just a regular day. The importance of sham and trying to stand up straight is emphasized, and the need to manage one's health and behavior is emphasized. The speakers stress the importance of maintaining a small quota and finding a small quota to achieve progress, as well as the use of various techniques such as walking, reciting, and using various foods. The conversation is disjointed and difficult to follow.

plays and thanks to you solely to Allah subhanahu antiallergic says Peace blessings and salutations upon our Master and exemplar. Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa are the early he was happy he was salam, the month of Ramadan has recently departed.

00:03:13--> 00:03:59

And we will, we will have to spend a considerable amount of time reflecting on Ramadan and begging Allah Subhana Allah to accept whatever it is that he has granted us the Tofik to attain and to achieve in that month to ask His forgiveness for any discrepancies, any mistakes, any shortcomings that we may have had during the month and to pray to Allah to ask for the next Ramadan that we that we reach it that we achieve it and that we accomplish better than what we had in the previous Ramadan. I mean, neuropil Allah mean the seller if the seller for Salah he refers to the first three generations of Muslims, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about how you could unicorny

00:03:59--> 00:04:43

to Medina Luna home from Mala Vina Luna home at the base of generations is my generation meaning the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and the Sahaba then those who follow them, meaning the Tabea and then those who follow them, meaning we at bow Tabea in those three generations, So collectively, we refer to them as the salah for Salah Hain and this is different from the contemporaneous term Salafi which refers to individuals who believe that they are attributed to those three generations, but we when we use when orlimar generally use the term Salah for Salah and they refer to the first three generations and they practice the Salah for Salah Hain they practice used to be that for six months

00:04:44--> 00:04:52

after Ramadan they would continue to pray that Allah to Allah accept what they attained in Ramadan and forgive them and

00:04:53--> 00:05:00

pray for for for acceptance of all the deeds and then the next six months they will

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

pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala in preparation for the other Ramadan. So they were always circling around Ramadan Ramadan was the was the key moment in the year that would mark the life and the patterns of their lives.

00:05:17--> 00:05:32

So the question we ask today is what happens after the the moon the honeymoon? What happens after Ramadan? It's a question that we always ask and we always think about after Ramadan. So we will take some time to explore that in sha Allah Allah.

00:05:34--> 00:05:37

I remember growing up and

00:05:39--> 00:05:58

the style was you know, not just to do more in Ramadan and then less outside of Ramadan. It was to do the basics in Ramadan and then to fail to do the basics outside of Ramadan. So for example, you may find some they don't regularly pray salah they may be praying Mallory

00:05:59--> 00:06:33

they may be pray some solace sometimes when there's other people making salah, but they're not really punctual on the priests. But in Ramadan, they become punctual on the priests because it's Ramadan. They are those who they generally don't abstain from haram but they do so to a to a significant degree in the month of Ramadan. And then outside of Ramadan, they fall short again, this is the the general you know habits that I recall in my teenage years and growing up. So it is in light of those practices that we say

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

that Ramadan isn't Allah

00:06:38--> 00:06:50

Allah created Ramadan we don't worship Ramadan we worship Allah. So our basic level of obedience to Allah is not specifically for Ramadan it is for always

00:06:51--> 00:06:54

and if you found yourselves

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

excelling in Ramadan to the point where all your bases were covered all your bases, so you will five daily Salah as well in order you were staying away from haram etc during Ramadan

00:07:08--> 00:07:16

and you will not doing so before Ramadan, it is extremely important for us to realize that we cannot go back right?

00:07:18--> 00:07:37

performing your five daily Salah as is not being pious, that's being Muslim has to be a minimum to perform Salah five times a day, every single day is the bare minimum. Right? This is not the level of whoa, I'm really good Muslim, this is the level of I'm just the Muslim.

00:07:38--> 00:07:54

So may Allah Subhana Allah either grant string, little fake, and they still come to all of those who find themselves in that position. Where is the risk of them going back to the old ways. We also less prediction shaytaan was of course released

00:07:55--> 00:08:03

and she thought he's busy again. And the nafs is busy again. The nafs now has been through the training but enough has come out of the gym.

00:08:05--> 00:08:14

My example and I think I've mentioned this before but possibly last year is that we need to see Ramadan as an intensive training session.

00:08:15--> 00:08:16


00:08:17--> 00:08:18


00:08:20--> 00:08:24

we don't look at Ramadan as the competition.

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

Ramadan is not the competition Ramadan is not the

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

the event

00:08:31--> 00:08:35

but rather it is the training for the event. The event is life.

00:08:38--> 00:08:40

When we say that what we mean is

00:08:41--> 00:09:19

our objective is not to prepay for Ramadan when performed in Ramadan, and then that's it. Now, the event is life is the rest of the year. Ramadan is the training grounds. Allah takes the enemy out of the equation, he changes the environment. And he gives you an intensive training program for 30 days 30 nights. And this training program is designed so that the knifes and the caliber and the aka the mind can be prepared for when the enemy is in fact, on the battlefield. It's like the person training.

00:09:20--> 00:09:42

US examples that I know of the person is training for big race, right? It's a oceans. The person is training for Oceans generally visit 12 week intensive training program before such an event. It's just general practice. And I'm sure the same thing applies to other sports as well. So they start the program they gradually build themselves up build themselves up.

00:09:43--> 00:09:49

But the point is not the 12 weeks. The point is the actual race, right?

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

It would be crazy of a person to prepare themselves for 12 weeks, intensively and then on the day of the race, they're just not going to bother going home

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

not going to bother training, I'm not going to rather I'm not going to bother participating. And we didn't make sense.

00:10:06--> 00:10:32

Because all that training was not for the sake of the training it was for the sake of the event. So similarly, we have Ramadan. Ramadan is an event in and of itself, yes. But it's also the training grounds for what lies beyond that. Allah take shaytaan away, Allah takes evil for the most bought out of our environment, Allah gives us an intensive time for

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

for building ourselves up.

00:10:37--> 00:10:42

The trail takes his he's champion to the gym.

00:10:43--> 00:11:01

There is no opponent in the gym. It's just the trainer and his sparring partner, and then they going at it, right. And it's day in day out of this training on the weight training on the track training in the ring. There's no opponent, he's not winning, he's not losing. He's just training.

00:11:03--> 00:11:27

And what is he training to do? He's training for the night of the of the fight. In that night comes. He's going to do the best he possibly can do. Imagine what would happen of the after this in the night of the fight. The opponent steps into the ring. Now the train is standing me having intensively trained for that time period, the opponent comes and gives him one shot.

00:11:28--> 00:11:52

Knockout. But the trainer can see that this guy he just got one shot that was the first round. He's still awake, he's just not getting up again. He's just for ease just fallen and he's kind of lazy. He doesn't want to face the opponent any longer. So he's likely no trainer who would accept that the train is going to be furious.

00:11:54--> 00:12:17

Not because he got not, but because he doesn't want to get up again. How can you not want to get up again, this is what we train for. You find kita keep fighting. No matter how many times the champ gets knocked down. The trainer will be absolutely fine with it as long as he keeps getting up again and keeps fighting the fight. And that's where we find ourselves now.

00:12:18--> 00:12:58

For many people shaitan would have knocked you odd since Ramadan if she thought it would have knocked you in one way or the other. Something happened on law barring night to something happened on Lovering day, or the next day, or maybe obviously for Fudger this morning, something shaytaan is going to find a way and all that he wants is he wants to see you lie there and just take it and not get up again. Because he doesn't want to see you fighting that good fight. And Allah subhanahu Medina will prepared you and gave you the month of Ramadan and forgave you of your sins. He didn't do all of that, so that you can just fall down after the first knock from Shaytaan. After the first

00:12:58--> 00:13:24

knock from the knifes we need to get up, we need to keep fighting the good fight. Now that action of getting up again and being upright again and standing your ground again, that action seeking to be upright all the time, seeking to stand up and face the opponent again, time after time. In Arabic In one word, that is called St karma.

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

The word is the Karma

00:13:28--> 00:13:52

comes from the root liters cough. Wow meme or cough Alif meme karma. Karma karma means to stand. And in this particular form is the karma. It means to seek to stand up straight perpetually, to seek to stand up straight perpetually. When we translate the term, we end up with the word consistency.

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

We end up with the word consistency.

00:13:56--> 00:14:16

But the reason I'm mentioning the etymology of the word is because within the etymology, we develop somewhat of a more technical understanding, consistency may give you the impression that you need to always be upright, and you need to always be on the straight.

00:14:17--> 00:14:59

Whereas seeking to be upright, and seeking to be on the straight means that you're not always upright. And you're not always on the straight, that you do fall sometimes that you do stray a little bit to the left and to the right, that you do make a U turn some way that you do take a wrong turn some way, but you will constantly seek way This means that path How do I get back to that path? Let me just find my way. That is the karma is the karma doesn't mean perfection, if it was that we are on the straight path consistently all the time perpetually never deviating that they would be called perfection.

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

That means we melodica and unfortunately, we don't have that quality lie as soon Allahumma Amara who Maya Aluna yoke, maroon, de la Malika the angels. They don't disobey Allah Eva, they are not capable of disobeying Allah. It's not part of the makeup, the mullah Iike they don't have that ability of free will and free choice that was given specifically to humankind and to Jin kind. And Allah azza wa jal created us like that he created the melodica. From noon, he created humankind from clay, right, earth and water and he created gin gain from smokeless fire.

00:15:43--> 00:16:28

Allah created us with different qualities and different attributes. Had Allah wanted us to be melodica, he would have made us melodica. So it's the farmer, as we will hear about quite frequently. Now post Ramadan is not about being angels. It's about being humans, who constantly want to walk the right path, who constantly try to walk the right path. It's about those humans who gets knocked down, but they get right back up again. They get smacked left, right and center from Shaytaan from the knifes from the dunya from the environment, but they don't stay down. They get back up again. When they slip, they turn to Allah they make dua, they make Toba, they get back up

00:16:28--> 00:16:50

again. And this they do until they eventually leave this world. They never reach a point. We now they are fine, they are satisfied, they are happy, they are understood, optimistic, and they got nothing to worry about any longer. until the very last moment before the melodica take our souls shaytaan will attempt to make us deny Allah.

00:16:52--> 00:17:31

I don't know where this comes from. But I recall specifically hearing one of my teachers mentioning that Shaytards greatest effort on your Eman is that moment when you're about to die, when he tries to make you not say your shahada, where he tries to make you not remember Allah or we he makes you feel as though you're supposed to deny Allah because of the pain that you're going through because of the difficulty that you're going through the whole our Lakota Illa Villa Allah protect us. Now that that said, listen to the passage that we quoted at the beginning of the sermon in Surah facilite verses 30 to 52. But either an Akula or bIllahi min ash shaytani rajim Bismillah R Rahman

00:17:31--> 00:18:20

Rahim in Alladhina CalU Rob buena Allahu Semesta como indeed those who say, Our Rob is Allah, through Mr. Palmer pommel, and then they perpetually seek to be upright, they perpetually seek to walk the straight and narrow, they keep going, they keep moving, that unnecessarily delay him will melodica The angels will descend upon them. This was unanimous agreement by the amorphous zero net this is referring to in Del Mote, at the time of death at the melodica will descend upon the person and they will say I let the whole fool Don't be afraid. They will say to the dying person, don't be afraid. While at the Heiser, no, don't be sad.

00:18:22--> 00:18:45

Don't be afraid for what comes now. What's coming next? Because you've done well. You've done well you are from among those who said, Rob Boone, Allah Our Lord is Allah through monster calm and you constantly tried. You keep trying, you didn't give up. You didn't lie down. You took the punch, but you got back up again. Don't fear now. Don't be scared.

00:18:46--> 00:18:56

While at the zoo, and don't be sad. You can imagine the dying person the family members or the perhaps the spouse is the kids or the

00:18:57--> 00:18:58

this person is sad.

00:19:01--> 00:19:39

If not for their own, for their own loss of dunya the business they live the comforts then, for what's gonna happen to my kids. Are they going to be okay? Is my wife gonna be okay? What's gonna happen? I didn't finish this. I didn't do that. I didn't spend that I still have to fix that. I didn't ask math to that one. I didn't give sadaqa I didn't make up my soul as the cause this comes it's not like you know when death is going to come that you can, you know, see to like right now, if we were to sit here and ask ourselves if the melodica were to come and take ourselves right now, what are the things that we would immediately regret not having done yet? Hopefully a little because

00:19:39--> 00:19:55

Ramadan just lays right. Hopefully a little. But be that as it may, I'm sure you would think like, oh, no, I still need to. I must still. There's always going to be something but the angels will come and comfort this dying person. And let us no don't be sad.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Don't grieve because what

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

You've left behind is good for you.

00:20:04--> 00:20:15

You've done well with your family. You've done well with your kids. If done well with your charity, you've done well with your praise. And what you've left behind as far as the legacy is concerned is good for you.

00:20:17--> 00:21:00

Well, Abby Shirou build Janna and they go on. They tell you Don't be sad. Don't fear don't be sad, and rejoice. Subhanallah imagine you're busy dying and the other malai could come to you. They tell you don't fear don't be sad and on top of that, rejoice, celebrate be happy. Bill Jana of the dice. Be happy about Paradise. Allah He can turn to I don't which you were promised in the soul span Allah. They come and give you the news. You're going to Jana. You still busy dying? Allahu Akbar. You haven't. You haven't officially died yet. And the angels are telling you you're going to Jana.

00:21:01--> 00:21:33

When they say as double assurance, Nano. Oh, Leah. Oh, Conville hayati, duniya, Orfila Hera, we, referring to Allah and the angels, we were your only we were your guardians. We were your friends. We were your allies in this world. Well, Phil akhira. And we will be your allies in the in the next life as well. Subhanallah because that feeling will overwhelm you. Am I going to be alone? And what's gonna happen? You can imagine

00:21:34--> 00:21:50

to get the assurance of the angels don't worry, we with you. We've got you. We've got your backs. We've got your backs behind Allah. It's like the trainer. Again, telling the champ Look, don't worry, I mean, you cone. I'm with you all the way.

00:21:51--> 00:21:53

And once you don't, don't don't stress

00:21:54--> 00:22:46

while they're comfy, Tasha, he and Foucault and in Jana, you will have literally mad dash that he that which desires and fusuma that which your nafs desires Subhanallah limits accuracy and dunya it's like whatever those things are that your knifes really want. But in the dunya you abstain because you're not allowed to give into your nafs they say now in Jannah your nafs is going to have a Joel who nafs can just have a party why? Because in Jannah you get what your knifes once it's just pleasure while a comfy hammer at their own and in Jannah in paradise, you will get what ever you asked for. As even you just do either right the aisle means to call so while comfy, hammer that down

00:22:46--> 00:23:28

whatever you call for will be the not make dua for and insha Allah Allah No, you just say it and it's the that's what you're gonna get. This is the this is still before the person has left this world melodica giving them glad tidings then they say no Zola, minimal food Ibrahim, because the question may come to this, this person being perplexed, being in the pangs of death being in pain. Why like is this for you? Like how is this possible? So they say Newsela minha foodie Rahim. This is the hospitality from raw food. From the most forgiving Rahim, the Most Merciful entered the believer. Ah, this is his hospitality towards you for what you have done in this world.

00:23:30--> 00:24:23

You go to I back up to this section again, sort of facilite verse 3232, the first verse in now Lavina Callooh Rob Boone, Allah through Mr. Como, it is for those who say it is for those who say, Allah is my Rob. have in fact, Allah is our Rob, we've taken Allah, we've taken Allah alone, not shaytaan not our knifes not our family's not our wealth, not our business, not our jobs, not our buses. None of that we've only taken Allah as our job. Nobody else decides the direction of our life, only Allah through Mr. Como, and they always try to maintain it. They always tried to maintain it. It's the karma, they kept on drying. This is not saying that they never slipped. This is not

00:24:23--> 00:24:54

saying that they never made mistakes. This is not saying that they never fell down. This is not saying that they never committed haram. This is not saying that they never missed the salah. This is not saying that they did everything they were supposed to do. No, they were human. They were human beings like all of us, but they kept on trying. They kept on getting up again. And the result is they get the glad tidings of Jannah before they even leave this world Allahumma Jalna mean whom Allah make us of those.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

Allah make all of us of those. What better Can we ask for?

00:25:00--> 00:25:11

yours What you do is that you make to Allah it's very important that we always ask Allah as much as we ask Allah for a good life. Ask Allah Allah Allah, please grant me a good death.

00:25:12--> 00:25:46

Please grant me a death, a wonderful death, the type of death that people dream of. Don't be afraid to ask Allah that Allah make the day that I meet you the day that I live to have the best day of my life, allow me to die in such that for example, allow me to die on the day of doom I can make dua to Allah subhanaw taala for these things, because having a good death is one of the greatest signs of acceptance that that Allah can afford a person because the way you die is how you will be resurrected Subhan Allah

00:25:48--> 00:26:13

so this is this is how we we find ourselves at the end of Ramadan reminding ourselves that look, we are now in the ring we are in the fight nafs is the shaitan is the the environment is the things have gotten somewhat back to normal in our lives. You bet you know full full swing at work, everything is in in place. Maybe we had some time off at the end of Ramadan, maybe not.

00:26:14--> 00:26:20

Maybe I will work environment to somewhat different maybe not. But now everything is back.

00:26:21--> 00:26:23

What are we going to do

00:26:24--> 00:26:47

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, he told us that will save a fast in Ramadan and follows it up with the six days of Shaohua it is as though that person has fasted kaneka See me. Now there's different ways of translating this you could say it's like this person is fasted perpetually, or the translations would say it's as if this person has fasted for the entire year.

00:26:50--> 00:27:03

So they we see that built into the Sunnah there are facilities for preparing for Ramadan, like the fasting of Shaban. And then there are facilities for sort of warming down. Okay.

00:27:04--> 00:27:18

It's like the person who goes into a, into a strenuous competition physical competition, before they can step into winning, they're going to spend a significant amount of time warming up, right warming up not stretches, that's not good.

00:27:20--> 00:27:36

Moving exercises, right warming up the muscles, then they get into the ring. Now they're gonna fight when they didn't when they done from the fight when they really finished now after that, they're going to do some stretches, right? Stationary stages. And this will just assist them

00:27:37--> 00:28:19

warming up. And warming down has been built into the DNA in many ways before you do a forward slash generally speaking, there's a sunnah Salah that precedes it. And after you then the fall outside, and then as soon as afterwards that follows it except budget and acid. But in those cases, these vicar altcar That you should make after so you warm up for it, you get into the main event and the new cooldown. And this is how we can view the six days of Shaohua in the form of not just abandoning Ramadan, and then going but just giving ourselves a transition phase. reminisce a little bit about what that is like. It's not possible for everyone, it's quite difficult actually. Because you see

00:28:19--> 00:28:27

everybody's eating the law barring leftovers for lunch around you and hear you fasting, right, and you know, you can eat

00:28:28--> 00:29:12

but you chose not to. It's not followed. So it's difficult. Allah grant us the Tofik and the strength and you know, give us the ability to do that. So just on that point, there are generally a few questions that people tend to ask every year so I'm going to just answer this question quickly. The one is, can you fast separated? Or does it have to be consecutively from the day of the aid for six days? So you can fast any six days of shower in in six days? Yes, it is better to do it consecutively after aid considering the wording of the Hadith meant by who you know, the follow it up with six days of shots better, but it's not required. It's not compulsory, it's not, you know,

00:29:12--> 00:29:35

fasting separated in the sixth day, in the month of shower is perfectly acceptable. So many people do this with a foster Mondays and Thursdays inshallah until they finish the six days, that's perfectly permissible. Can you fast, only on the weekends, or only in the week, or maybe every second? Any combination of the above is fine. Right.

00:29:36--> 00:29:59

Then the next major question that comes up about this is if you have makeup fast, like called or fasting is generally a question that comes from the ladies sometimes men, I don't know when they get the height, but sometimes men, they fall ill during the month of Ramadan, so they have to take medication or something of the sort. Now they need to make it up afterwards. Can you make up fast

00:30:00--> 00:30:35

and intend for the six days of show all simultaneously that the whole right like when you come into the masjid and you supposed to make the hiatal Masjid. You don't have to you don't make a separate South Africa hate imagine if this is really a Salah taking place. That's why people stand. I know most people don't know this, but that's actually why we stand when you come in and that is being read, you're not standing, because it's there, then you're standing because if you sit down you you nullify your opportunity for the hated Masjid. So you stand you keep standing until you actually make the sila that's coming with it's the two Sooners before the fall or with it's the fault of

00:30:35--> 00:31:08

itself, but your designated magic is combined in whatever Salah you make as long as you didn't sit down. So that's the idea. Can the same thing apply to the to the fasting of shower. So there are differences of opinion among the scholars about this? Some would say outright no to be nullifying your your fast entirely. That's not the view of the Shafi scholars. The Shafi scholars have two views in this regard. The one is that you shouldn't, you shouldn't do that. Explain why in a moment. And the other one is that you can

00:31:10--> 00:31:49

the one that says that you that you can, it's just basically looking at issues like the head imagine and saying, Look, you can make that whole it's fine. There's no problem with it. Those who say that you shouldn't are basing it on the fact that the prophets Allah, Allah, Allah is sin emceed whoever fast in Ramadan and follows it up with the six days of shower, it is likely fasting for a year, they understand that 30 days of Ramadan times 10 equals 306 days of show out times 10 equals 60 days, you rounded off number of Aluna 360. So if you're going to make that that whole, if you're going to combine the two, you're not going to end up with that 360. So looking at what the objective is they

00:31:49--> 00:31:59

say rather than not. So my personal recommendation, if somebody asks me, I explain this, and I tell them look, if fasting is easy for you, you don't mind doing it, it's

00:32:00--> 00:32:38

it's not. It's not a chore. It's not difficult, you don't go through any difficulty whatsoever, but rather do your CODA and use six days to get the optimal rewards. But if you're a beginner or a novice, it's the first time you're doing your six days of Shaohua maybe the first time you fasting super fast in your life. You know, you really want to try it you may be a very young child something of the sort it's difficult for you just combine it no problem hungry like you're doing it with the consciousness of Allah subhanaw taala you're following the other opinion? So the are these these scope for this in our deen while Allah Hill hunt, but this is just the six days of shower does that

00:32:38--> 00:32:42

mean okay you finish your six days a shower and now it's over like your life life is back to normal.

00:32:45--> 00:33:29

In in relation to the question of what do we maintain after Ramadan? It's very important that we understand two things. One, you cannot maintain Ramadan, exactly. Outside of Ramadan. It can't. It's just impossible. To demonstrate this, you look at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If anybody could maintain their Ramadan exactly inside as well as outside it would have been Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I'm not saying that he couldn't but he didn't kind of agitate a nurse well as you admire Kunal fie Ramadan, the Sahaba said he was the most generous of people, but he became the most generous in Ramadan. So this definitely a step up

00:33:30--> 00:33:52

in Ramadan is a step up, right? From Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. So if we imagine that we can maintain exactly what we did in Ramadan, so it's the 100 fasting and 20 records and you know, Bucha and Quran also every single day. Of course, we are deluding ourselves, right? God deluding ourselves.

00:33:53--> 00:34:22

We cannot maintain the exact level because Allah designed Ramadan in a very special way. No other time of the years Jahannam close Jana open shaytaan locked environment has changed. And it becomes you know, multiple rewards for doing single things. It's a special time and had it been perpetual added been every month like that. It wouldn't be special any longer. People wouldn't be able to maintain it. So it's a very beautiful facility in our deen.

00:34:23--> 00:34:46

But then the other side of that coin is this. Just because you can't maintain everything? Doesn't mean you must drop everything. Right. Mariela, you drop cuckoo Villa Utako julu. That which you cannot attain in its entirety, don't also abandon it completely. So how does how does one understand this?

00:34:47--> 00:34:50

And today, I just want to focus on the bare minimum, because

00:34:51--> 00:35:00

from that we can become creative and imagine how to expand on it. But I'm just looking at those people who practically

00:35:00--> 00:35:25

became Muslim for the first time in Ramadan, to use the cannula lever with Elissa market, right five times a day, on time every single day, because they are our biggest concern. If you are going to be making Salah and everything and you're not worried, then Alhamdulillah you know you've got the bare minimum. For those who are worried that they're going to be dropping the ball as they say, right?

00:35:27--> 00:35:30

It is it is of utmost importance that we understand

00:35:32--> 00:35:56

what comes first? What comes first. So before you ask about what can we continue to do and what is extra and all these things. The first priority is our salah. The first priority is our salah, don't ask you about that dude, and about how much could animals butcher and if you're not making five daily salaries on time every single day, that's priority number one.

00:35:57--> 00:36:17

That's priority number one. In fact, I might even make it to it number two priority number one staying away from haram. Just keep staying away from your haram, whatever it is that you were doing, keep staying away from that. And then your first priority is your Salah. Okay, so those things the top form, that is your followed.

00:36:19--> 00:36:21

If you can manage more beyond that,

00:36:22--> 00:36:46

if you can manage more beyond that, then give yourself a quota of how much that is going to be and make it ridiculously easy amount for you. Ridiculously Easy means it's almost laughable that that is your quota. So you could if you really push yourself, recite a juice a day you have the ability, that's not your quota.

00:36:48--> 00:36:49

That's not your quota.

00:36:50--> 00:36:55

If you can push for the Jews, then your quota is like a page or two.

00:36:57--> 00:37:06

If you could push for a half Jews, then your quota is a half a page. It must be so ridiculously easy that it doesn't even make it doesn't even take effort from you.

00:37:08--> 00:37:16

As for Sooners, same thing, if you can manage to do a track ads of tahajjud if you really push when you go to is to rock ads.

00:37:18--> 00:37:40

If you can manage to give 1000 Rand in SATA a month, if you really push for a really good month, then your quota is 100 grand a month. This is how we should determine this. The only condition is you're not ever going to let that go. You keep it perpetually as much as you can.

00:37:41--> 00:37:56

If your thing that you maintain from Ramadan is reciting Surah Yaseen on a daily basis reciting Surah Mulk every night. And that's all you do, and you manage to maintain it to next year Ramadan, masha Allah, you've you've benefited something, you've gained something.

00:37:57--> 00:38:38

But the way to keep something of Ramadan is to find a ridiculously small quota that when I say ridiculous, I mean, it's laughable for you, who's able to do much more to make that your quota. But that's what you need to do. If you want to remain consistent. Right? One of my teachers is significantly older than I am one of my first teachers, I don't want to mention his name. Now, specifically, you might not like it, but he also he tries to be physically active, right? So there was one stage we reached like 175 Push ups for the day, like on one

00:38:40--> 00:39:23

so if you ask him how you manage that, he will tell you I started with five and I just did five every single day five, for the person who is able to do a lot is like a waste of time. Right person will try to do 10 or 20 Okay, I did something but five, it's laughable, but that's exactly what he did. And he maintained it until it became thin and in 10 became laughable, I mean he did 20 And so he built himself up until he came to 175 Now when you hear 175 from the videos that you know how does how does the guy you know how does he manage this but that's how you go back to the bare minimum all we need to do is determine that for ourselves.

00:39:25--> 00:39:29

I personally recommend that use your five daily Salah has

00:39:31--> 00:39:48

even for the people who have been making sada still use your five daily Sadhas if you can if you can maintain on that. What do I mean you've already done it you know you're going to do it what do I mean? I mean, step up, step up. Bring all your supplies right

00:39:49--> 00:40:00

now you must know when I say bring it right. I mean there's a lot that we can do. If you are making sada make Salah on time. If you are making Salah on time make Salah at the

00:40:00--> 00:40:11

Beginning of its work at the beginning of its like you must be waiting for the Advan beginning of its work and you've prepared for it. If you are doing that now make cider in the masjid.

00:40:12--> 00:40:27

Now I'm excited about it, maybe not all some of them, some of them make Salah in the MSG. If you are making sign them as it makes a lot in the first soft of the machine. If you are making Salah in the first half of the magic then go early, perform more do before you leave.

00:40:29--> 00:41:13

Perform will do well with all the doors and everything involved. Listen to the other man repeat the words of them what has been make your soon as make dua between the Sooners and the fourth, after the fourth continue making a test B and you do ah and then your Sooners and if you are doing that, then start walking to the masjid and walking back. That's a reasonable distance. And if you are doing that now add the hatchet. So you can use your five daily salads. The problem is we tend to set our goals too big. When we feel depressed about not being able to attain those goals. We look at the Super bias people right we're doing astounding things in worship and we compare ourselves to them.

00:41:14--> 00:41:34

And then we make that bar so high we will never be able to attain it if we just give up on the whole thing. That's not the way to go. Bring that standard down, bring it way down, make it laughable this is just between you and Allah subhanaw taala and you build yourself up from the using your five daily Salah as you can improve throughout your entire life.

00:41:35--> 00:42:13

Because no matter how much of the physical things that I mentioned you have in order the spiritual things can always be worked on. How much concentration do you have in your Salah? How much of what you recite you understand in your Salah, how many sutras Have you memorized and can recite it with understanding in Salah how many of the Afghan in ruku and sujood you only know Subhanallah Bill Alvin Subhana Allah Allah this whole much more than that, go and learn some of that right so there's always a way to step up with our Salah has and that in and of itself can be the way we maintain is the karma to next Ramadan May Allah Subhana Allah grant us the understanding and the defeat to do

00:42:13--> 00:42:50

well may accept our Ramadan forgive us of our sins may guide us perpetually, that when we fall down we stand back up again. Allah Quran does taqwa, and it's the karma. Now let's have 100 Allah guide us and our families and our Ummah that we can maintain some of the beautiful gifts he had given us in Ramadan and carry it with us till next Ramadan Allah Allah grant us the nude and the guidance of the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to accompany us on the Sirata Mr. Team, may we never lose open Allah's mercy may we have the strength to defeat shaitan and our knifes May Allah subhanaw taala grant this will acceptance working with the Awana annual hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen
