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

salatu salam ala Rasulillah

00:00:07--> 00:00:07

while it was

00:00:09--> 00:00:11

sent I want to call him to mind what I can do.

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

We ask Allah azza wa jal

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

to accept from us. The first thing that we have done in Ramadan,

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

we ask Allah azza wa jal

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

to accept from us the DUA that we have done in Ramadan. And we asked Allah azza wa jal to enable us to continue this event that we've been doing it on a bomb in the days to come.

00:00:41--> 00:00:47

So, the talk in sha Allah is about the month of Chawan

00:00:48--> 00:00:48


00:00:49--> 00:00:50

in the month of Shawwal,

00:00:52--> 00:00:53

the main question is

00:00:55--> 00:01:01

whether this month is the end or the beginning

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

the end of

00:01:04--> 00:01:05


00:01:07--> 00:01:13

or it is a beginning of a battle Subhanallah the Sunnah of Allah azza wa jal

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

is that whenever we finish a bad

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

we start another bad

00:01:27--> 00:01:35

year round. We are in constant Eva to Allah azza wa jal Ramadan is the highlight.

00:01:36--> 00:01:46

The month of Ramadan is the highlight the ninth month of the lunar calendar, but it is not the only a bad

00:01:48--> 00:01:58

so once we finished Ramadan, as Allah azza wa jal said, While it took me no data, wanting to capture Allah, Allah Maha Darko

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

so you would

00:02:02--> 00:02:03

complete the term

00:02:04--> 00:02:16

and you would say that there can be Allahu Akbar. Now, if I asked you, when do we say the clear Allahu Akbar, Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar,

00:02:17--> 00:02:34

Allah, when do we say that? We say that during the ETS, I know we say that. But when do we say that frequently? We say that actually, in the days of April. So there is a connection. They are connected.

00:02:35--> 00:02:39

This is the Sunnah of Allah azza wa jal, you'll finish rabada

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

it doesn't mean that it is over, you know, you finish the abanda and Hamdulillah. And this is what we've done. Why Allah azza wa jal put the day of April 5, it is

00:02:53--> 00:03:00

the end of Ramadan. That's the end of Riba. And now, you are starting a new either

00:03:01--> 00:03:08

a new or a bye EBA in the month of Chawan. Yes. This is why fasting, the day of Eid is prohibited.

00:03:10--> 00:03:23

You cannot fast the day of eight It is a day of celebration. But after that there is a bad there are the six days of Chawan which I'm going to talk about, but more importantly, there is the head.

00:03:25--> 00:03:38

The head that Allah azza wa jal says in Surah Baqarah I 197 And had you assure me that moment, Hajj is well known months,

00:03:40--> 00:03:43

these months start from shower.

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

This is why if anyone

00:03:48--> 00:03:50

intended Hajj

00:03:51--> 00:03:56

and started the Haram on the last day of Ramadan, it will not count.

00:03:57--> 00:04:04

It won't count. But the first day of Chawan it will count even on the day of Eid, it will count

00:04:05--> 00:04:17

someone traveled to Mecca. And may Allah azza wa jal enable us again to be able to perform the Hajj as we used to. When you go there, some people can go from now

00:04:18--> 00:04:50

and they do umbra. They want to do hydrothermal. So they stay there until the eighth of the region where they start the Hajj. That's possible. So Allah azza wa jal said and had to assure Malama, Hajj is well known months, those months are Chawan, the Ricarda and this is a map that's unanimous consensus amongst all the scholars. So Chawan actually, if you look at it from one perspective, it is the end of Ramadan.

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

And this is why we celebrate. We have fasted the month of Ramadan, so we celebrate the but then Chawan at the same time

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

Time is the beginning of a new Ibadan, which is had and in between there is a bad on its own in Chawan which is fasting, the 60s.

00:05:15--> 00:05:19

So while for the pious predecessors used to be

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

a source of worry,

00:05:26--> 00:05:31

anxiety, why they just finished the month of Ramadan?

00:05:33--> 00:05:34


00:05:37--> 00:05:45

you cannot tell when you finish the month of Ramadan whether Allah azza wa jal accepted that from you or not, yes, you've done the bad

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

but that's not all.

00:05:49--> 00:05:55

Would it count? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said group assign Lai Salah home in Hungary in the Java language.

00:05:57--> 00:06:06

Perhaps there would be someone who's fasting and all what he will get from his fast is the thirst and the hunger or the hunger and the thirst.

00:06:08--> 00:06:48

So, there are people who did the deeds, but they're not accepted. Yeah, I the chest. But how would it matter whether you fasted or not? If Allah azza wa jal did not accept it from you. So how do I know that Allah azza wa jal accepted the event that because that's actually all what matters? Did Allah azza wa jal accept from you or not? Because Allah azza wa jal says in Surah tonight in the story of the two sons of Adam, in a battle Allahu Minella 13. Allah only accepts from the pious

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

many people

00:06:52--> 00:07:08

they do the deeds, but Allah azza wa jal don't accept from them, just like the son of Adam. So, the pious predecessors, whenever Ramadan is over, they would start praying to Allah azza wa jal to accept from them the month of Ramadan.

00:07:09--> 00:07:20

And that starts from this month from Chawan. And why Chawan was a source of worry and anxiety because immediately after Ramadan, you could tell,

00:07:21--> 00:07:47

are you able to continue the abandon that you've started in Ramadan? Because if you are, then this is a strong sign that Insha Allah, Allah azza wa jal accepted from but if you started something, and then you stopped, you went, like, before Ramadan, or even worse than that's a strong sign that maybe Allah azza wa jal did not accept from you.

00:07:49--> 00:08:00

How would you start a bed that pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala and then you stop it. This was not the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:08:01--> 00:08:20

As the Companions described his deeds Cana Malibu Dima, his deeds used to be continuous. So, whenever he starts something he would continue with, of course, it is expected that your deeds will not be the same.

00:08:21--> 00:08:34

Even the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the companions said can age they need to feed Ramadan knowledge they need to feel like he used to strive in Ramadan what he would not strive in other months, that is expected.

00:08:36--> 00:08:56

You You're not going to do the same thing that you did in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. But at least Are you able to continue very bad that you started in Ramadan? So if you did, then this is a strong sign that Allah azza wa jal accepted from you again, when can we tell in this month, the month of Shawwal.

00:08:58--> 00:09:20

The month of Shawwal Subhanallah is connected to Ramadan. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam connected them when he said inside Muslim man Simon Ramadan from Tibet at home, so that means you're one Kanak assuming that Whoever fasts the month of Ramadan, then follow that up with six days of Shawwal. It is as if he fasted the holy.

00:09:22--> 00:09:53

So, Ramadan and show what they are connected. Then, as Allah azza wa jal mentioned, in Surah, Al Baqarah 197 And had you assured myeloma which is well known months, those months start from Chawan. So Subhanallah as you see, Chawan is in the middle. It is connected to Ramadan, but also it is connected to the months of the cada and the picture, where we perform the last pillar of Islam had.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

So, show one. If you look at it from one perspective, it is

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

At the end of Ramadan, but also it is the beginning of Hajj

00:10:07--> 00:10:09

And subhanAllah even when Hajj is over

00:10:10--> 00:10:11

a year

00:10:12--> 00:10:35

elapsed. This doesn't mean the Ibadah is over. Because in Haram also we have a bad as well. And that's the known. This is the Sunnah of Allah azza wa jal, you are in constant battle and that hamdulillah the battle is not the same. People can please Allah azza wa jal by reading Quran, people can please Allah azza wa jal by

00:10:37--> 00:10:46

vicar, just thicker stuff in Allah Subhan Allah and hamdulillah people can please Allah azza wa jal by fasting, prayer,

00:10:47--> 00:11:05

Umrah and Hajj so year round, you have things to do you have a Baghdad to please Allah azza wa jal so the month of Chawan is the end of Ramadan and it is the beginning of the season of Hajj.

00:11:08--> 00:11:09

Okay, now

00:11:11--> 00:11:16

Chawan has unique things, other months don't have.

00:11:17--> 00:11:30

One of them is the day of eight and it will fit on that day actually is a special day. It is a day of reward, as the pious predecessors used to call it the day of reward your manager is.

00:11:31--> 00:11:47

And it was mentioned in Hadith. It's not that authentic, but scholars accepted it in general yarmulke is the day of reward, the day of price where Allah azza wa jal would tell the servants would tell

00:11:49--> 00:11:57

those who fast the month of Ramadan, it could be due July is take your prices.

00:11:59--> 00:12:01

When we go to Salah tonight

00:12:03--> 00:12:07

after finishing the month of Ramadan, the angels are spread out,

00:12:09--> 00:12:36

saying salam to us. Yes, we don't see them. We don't hear them, but they are there. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he told us that and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he would alternate his way he would go to the masjid I'm sorry to masala eat the area of prayer because the Sunnah is to pray and eat in open in the open. There used to be a place called masala eat.

00:12:37--> 00:12:51

It could be performed in the masjid, of course, but that's the sermon, it was performed in masala Lee. So he would go from one way. And then he would come back from a different way. Why? To see as much angels as possible.

00:12:52--> 00:13:03

Again, we cannot see the angels but the angels can see us. So this is something unique, you don't have in other months, only the month of the hijab also has another eight. That's all

00:13:04--> 00:13:13

the performance of read prayer. This is something we don't have in other months. There are only two read prayers in the year.

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

And one of them is

00:13:17--> 00:13:18

in the month of Shabbat

00:13:20--> 00:13:43

and the highlight is the fasting of the six days of Shabbat which most people ask about because of what the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Man sama Ramadan from Tibet, I hope so. Then Misha one can I can see I mean, Whoever fasts the month of Ramadan, then we follow that up with six days of Chawan. It is as if he fast the whole year.

00:13:44--> 00:14:06

With a simple calculation. One good deed is multiplied 10 times. So the month of Ramadan times 10. That's 10 months of the That leaves two months, the six days of Chawan times 10 That's 60 days, 60 days, that's two months 10 months

00:14:07--> 00:14:18

because of one month which is the month of Ramadan, two months because of fasting six days of Chawan it is as if you fast the holy. So that's the simple calculation.

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

Now, most people ask

00:14:27--> 00:14:33

do I do the kebab first or fasting the six days of Shiva

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

Baba is what

00:14:36--> 00:15:00

it is a must. Fasting the month of Ramadan is a must. And most of these questions come from sisters because definitely in the month of Ramadan. They have to break their fast for men, most of them unless they are sick or they are traveling. They wouldn't be thinking about that because hamdulillah they were able to fast to be

00:15:00--> 00:15:28

entire month, but for the sisters, they have this they have to break in the month of Ramadan. So, do they start with that? Because making up the obligatory a banner that's obligated. But during the Sunnah, that's sunnah. So when you look at it, the obligatory rebar that takes precedence over what is sunnah. And therefore, you should start with what is obligatory? Yes, but here is an important issue,

00:15:29--> 00:15:34

you have only one month to do the six days, which is the month of Shawwal.

00:15:35--> 00:15:36

And therefore,

00:15:37--> 00:15:53

whenever you have a time and the limited time to do it, whether you have a limited time to do either or a timed event that that will not be accepted in another time, you should do that particular event within that timeframe.

00:15:54--> 00:16:11

What does that mean? Take little beer as an example, that bake alarm and a bake. I can see that now the bake alarm when I bake the bacon actually color color bake, but this would not count. Because I am not in the state of Assam and I am not

00:16:12--> 00:16:31

doing any rituals of Hajj. Yes, I mentioned in Allah and I will be rewarded for that. But it is not the reward of Tobia there will be is specific when you start the hub. So therefore, when you start the hub, it is preferred to keep yourself busy with that particular I gather

00:16:32--> 00:16:33

the big alarm.

00:16:34--> 00:16:34


00:16:36--> 00:16:51

So therefore, in the month of Chawan when someone asks, Would you fast the six days first, or make up the days of Ramadan? First, the answer is fast the six days first.

00:16:52--> 00:16:59

All but I have days that I have to make up? Yes, you have the entire year to do that.

00:17:02--> 00:17:06

Making up the obligatory event that takes precedence. Yes. But again,

00:17:07--> 00:17:28

if you leave the month of Shawwal for some reason, you started with making up the days of Ramadan. And then you had to break your fast again. And then you ran out of time. There are no more days, you cannot have this a bad fasting the six days of shower. So you start with them

00:17:30--> 00:17:59

all but if I start with that, and then I make up the days of Ramadan, then I wouldn't be fulfilling what the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, because the prophets Allah Salam said mon sama Ramadan, so much better than Mitchell when the Prophet SAW Selim said, Whoever fast the month of Ramadan, then follow that up with the six days of Chawan. So I need to find the month of Ramadan first, yes, and you are doing that.

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

But again, you have a limited time in Chawan for those six weeks. So you can start with that.

00:18:10--> 00:18:17

And the evidence of this is what I Isha of the Illawarra used to do, I should have the illnesses,

00:18:18--> 00:18:26

there would be days of Ramadan that I have to make up and the only time I would be able to do that is in Shabbat,

00:18:27--> 00:18:34

Shabbat of next year. Why because of the position of the Prophet sallallahu was because of the state she was in.

00:18:35--> 00:18:58

She couldn't fast because she was fulfilling the needs of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, this is by no means encouraging people to delay making up the days, but it is a clear evidence that you start with the six days of Chawan and then we'll follow that up with the days of

00:19:00--> 00:19:00

the makeup.

00:19:03--> 00:19:07

Okay, now, someone else would ask also

00:19:10--> 00:19:29

I want to combine the six days of Sure well, with the makeup days. And I heard that some scholars said this is permissible. Yeah, that is true. But this is not the right opinion. Just because someone said something that does not make it right.

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

Because actually

00:19:34--> 00:19:48

the Prophet sallallahu sallam said when sama Ramadan from its Baja system inshallah you need to fast the need to fast Ramadan and then you need to fast six days of Shabbat.

00:19:49--> 00:19:53

But if you fast Ramadan, then you make up the days of Ramadan.

00:19:55--> 00:19:58

With a simple math, you didn't do both.

00:19:59--> 00:20:00


00:20:00--> 00:20:01

In Islam, we have something

00:20:02--> 00:20:24

about combining to worry about that together like the hatred masjid. And the fourth pray, if you come to the masjid, you do not sit until you pray to Raka. But if the Joomla is already in progress, you joined the Joomla immediately through

00:20:25--> 00:20:28

and therefore, it will count. But here

00:20:29--> 00:20:30

in Chawan

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

that does not work.

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

There are two different about that.

00:20:36--> 00:20:41

And therefore, they both need to be done. And if you combined

00:20:42--> 00:20:47

the six days with the intention that this is making up the days of Ramadan,

00:20:49--> 00:20:50

you didn't fast

00:20:51--> 00:21:09

36 days because that's what the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, on some Ramadan, you need to first Ramadan, some expect I hope so, that means you're one then fast the six days of Shabbat. So, this is what needs to be done.

00:21:11--> 00:21:31

So, I know there are many questions about the month of Chawan about fasting the 60s, but the fast itself is not the only event that that we have in the month of Chawan. So what is a transition between Donavon and Hajj Chawan is

00:21:33--> 00:21:46

a month that is connected to Ramadan and also at the same time it is connected to the season of Hajj because this is the Sunnah of Allah azza wa jal whenever we finish a bad

00:21:47--> 00:21:54

we start with another look at the salah. The prayer itself, which we do at least five times a day.

00:21:55--> 00:22:02

Immediately after you finish the prayer, the Lord said I'm gonna call him the first thing you say stop you're alone.

00:22:03--> 00:22:04


00:22:05--> 00:22:11

You are asking Allah azza wa jal for forgiveness what you just did something good you didn't do something bad.

00:22:13--> 00:22:21

That's the Sunnah of Allah subhanaw taala that's the way of Allah and this is what Allah's jealousies also in Surah Baqarah

00:22:23--> 00:22:37

in our public domain Asika 50 Corolla aka the creek on our show that you finished the rituals of Hajj that either are going to massacre, fifth Corolla, remember Allah

00:22:38--> 00:23:09

I 199 of Surah Al Baqarah. So you remember ALLAH, I just finished this but you remember Allah. So this is the Sunnah always when you finish a bad and that's why we finished Ramadan. Well it took me like that once we knew Ramadan is over, we start the tech Allah Akbar Allahu Akbar, from the night of the eat. Not on the day of eat from the night before. We knew Ramadan is over. But it took me a while to get beer Allah Allah.

00:23:11--> 00:23:12

Allah Allah the Quran

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

one daily fine.

00:23:16--> 00:23:17


00:23:19--> 00:23:31

Chawan the month of Chawan is in the middle, it is connected to Ramadan, but at the same time, it is also connected to Hajj

00:23:32--> 00:23:47

and it is in the middle. It combines both because this is the Sunnah we always worship Allah azza wa jal, we are always in constant repair that to him, we finished one. And then we start the other.

00:23:49--> 00:23:54

The only month that you have the cattle fatal is the month of Chawan.

00:23:56--> 00:24:28

Oh, but I paid the money. Last few days of Ramadan. Yes, in our time, that's what most people do. But at the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. The Sunnah is to pay the money. Before selected eight people are going for it prayer. And, you know, the poor, who's worthy of the cattle veto and you give it to him. If you pay that money after the Eid prayer, then it is not counted as a cat anymore. It's just southern.

00:24:29--> 00:24:42

So the obligation is actually on the day of it, but people to guarantee that they have fulfilled this obligation. They pay it early.

00:24:43--> 00:25:00

And when they pay it earlier, usually they pay it to charitable organizations and those charitable organizations. They take that money and they distributed on the day of aid before the aid prayer, but because of the number and because of the limited sort

00:25:00--> 00:25:21

Since they would start that, from the days of the last 10 nights of Ramadan, but actually as you see the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Salam is to pay the cattle flipper before they eat prayer. So it is happening in Chawan. That's a bad that is unique on me to the month option one.

00:25:23--> 00:25:31

So luckily, as I said, the only time when you perform that is in Chawan. And in the ledger

00:25:33--> 00:25:40

and the six days that will be guaranteed to count as two months are

00:25:41--> 00:26:00

ensured, they are not in any other month. So there are many I bet that in Chawan, but because we just finished the month of Ramadan, we are still in that mood in that atmosphere of the fasting.

00:26:02--> 00:26:14

The people who are preparing to perform hajj, and once again we pray to Allah azza wa jal to enable us to perform Hajj as we used to be to do that, in the years before.

00:26:15--> 00:26:24

They are in preparation, that preparation starts from Ramadan, but now they can start and they can initiate this rebellion

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

from the month of July.

00:26:30--> 00:26:32

There are other things that

00:26:34--> 00:26:44

I have been thinking about. And when the brothers approached me to give this talk to Zamyla. Farah, I need to thank them for giving me this opportunity.

00:26:46--> 00:26:53

Actually, when I agreed to give this stock, I started thinking about what I would be saying

00:26:54--> 00:26:54


00:26:56--> 00:26:57

circumstances were different

00:26:59--> 00:27:00

from what we see now.

00:27:03--> 00:27:05

When I'm talking today about this topic,

00:27:07--> 00:27:20

I feel some guilt, honestly, because I feel that this is not the right thing to talk about. Yes, you did invite people. And we did agree on the topic. And the brothers do some

00:27:21--> 00:27:33

survivors. They prepared everything. And the intention is good. But panela when we see what's happening to our brothers and sisters in Palestine, we just cannot forget about that.

00:27:34--> 00:27:37

As I just mentioned earlier, when there is a time that

00:27:39--> 00:28:21

you need to do that, within this timeframe. Now, the brothers and sisters in Palestine, they are in dire need of our support, even with even with words, words that some people think they would not matter, words that some people think would not change anything. Actually they do. And the Prime Minister of the Zionist regime, he confessed. And he said that the worst thing they are having is not the leaders that are surrounding them. It is the public opinion that is formed based on the biased propaganda. That's what he calls it, the biased propaganda against them.

00:28:22--> 00:28:25

That's what you just said a few days ago. So

00:28:26--> 00:28:33

I feel like this is our duty. They have been the entire year and the years before

00:28:35--> 00:28:46

in our means for supporting them. But actually, now is the time. So I felt what should I do. But it is my obligation.

00:28:48--> 00:28:54

This is the right thing to do. You promised to talk about something, so you have to do it. But

00:28:55--> 00:29:21

I fulfill the promise in sha Allah. Yes, I agreed to talk for 45 minutes, but I cut it short because I felt that it is my obligation. At least to just remind my brothers and sisters of what's happening here. Never, ever belittle, underestimate any good deeds that you could do to support them. Even with one sentence. Many of them are watching what we are doing.

00:29:22--> 00:29:25

What are we doing, when they are under the bombing?

00:29:27--> 00:29:29

The shelling, they are massacred

00:29:30--> 00:29:37

and they see that we are going by our life day in day out as if there is nothing Subhanallah so

00:29:38--> 00:29:54

I'm sorry, I'm going off topic because I feel and I believe this is the right thing to do. And again mashallah the brothers and drivers they have done some problems in the past I know about an axon, but now is the time.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

Our brothers and sisters they are attacked there. They have been at

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

actually during the month of Ramadan, now the attack has been wider. And it is including also the people in Gaza.

00:30:10--> 00:30:24

And now it's all over Palestine. So where are the Muslims? Where are our efforts to support them? So I feel the time now, he's about this, not about anything else.

00:30:26--> 00:30:36

There are priorities in life and in religion also. The obligatory Ibadah comes first, before any optional a better.

00:30:37--> 00:31:01

And Allah azza wa jal reminded us in the Quran. We're in Istanbul sorrow confit de facto a common Nussle that's encircling France Surah eight, at the end of Surah eight, Allah azza wa jal said, we're in a stance or openfit de fan a common Nussle. If they seek your support, then you have it's your duty to support. You see, some people say

00:31:02--> 00:31:19

I'm not really interested in that issue. I want the issues that are connected to me local issues. MCO things that I face here in Malaysia. Well, you don't have to be Palestinian. Actually, you don't even have to be Muslim.

00:31:20--> 00:31:32

To worry about this issue, you only have to be human. But if you are Muslim, this issue does concern me, because I must be the answer is the first glance. And if you

00:31:33--> 00:31:44

ignore the first pillar, you would ignore the second pillar which is uncovered. So there is no way around it. They are connected together.

00:31:45--> 00:31:55

Just as the month of Shawwal is connected to Ramadan, and it is connected to the season of hygiene, the same thing, that Mr. that Amazon is connected to us.

00:31:56--> 00:32:09

It's not about geographic location at all. It is about our religion. And they know that Subhanallah they know that. And this is why they targeted the peaceful people.

00:32:11--> 00:32:14

In the month of Ramadan, they are just performing their event and they attack.

00:32:16--> 00:32:22

And they look at the media, the Western media, it's clashes between Palestinians and no.

00:32:25--> 00:32:26

It is one sided

00:32:27--> 00:32:34

terrorists who attacked peaceful people, and you just have to be silent, you just have to accept that.

00:32:36--> 00:32:44

To remain peaceful, have self restraint, of course, you have to defend yourself. So again, I do apologize. I

00:32:46--> 00:32:51

I feel that this is our duty. I did talk about the month of Chawan.

00:32:52--> 00:32:55

As much as I felt it is needed.

00:32:57--> 00:32:59

But I feel that

00:33:00--> 00:33:02

this is the topic of the hour.

00:33:03--> 00:33:07

Allah azza wa jal forgive us for not supporting them as we should.

00:33:09--> 00:33:22

And may Allah azza wa jal enable us to be able to do something that would help them. You see, when we do something, it's not just for them, actually, they have done their part.

00:33:24--> 00:33:26

They have been standing firm,

00:33:27--> 00:33:31

in patients, sacrificing everything,

00:33:32--> 00:33:39

with open chest, to the bullets and the missiles. But the question is, what have we done?

00:33:41--> 00:33:46

They have sacrificed everything, what have we done to support them? So

00:33:47--> 00:34:16

I ask Allah azza wa jal, that these words and this time that we are spending would be counted as something that we have done to support them. So I do apologize. I'm going to finish a little bit earlier, but just as a reminder, that this time because of what's happening, we need to be always connected to that. Because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam reminded us that Marcelo Muslimeen the example of the believers

00:34:17--> 00:34:36

in their unity, feet away, are they what do they want? Or how can I say they just like one body, one body, you cannot, if you have a headache, you cannot say oh, it is in my head. My entire body is separate, it's connected, you will feel it in your entire body. If you have

00:34:38--> 00:34:49

a problem in your heart, it will affect your entire body, even in your finger. If the tip of your finger is itching, you would feel the entire body the same thing

00:34:50--> 00:34:55

we should be feeling for our brothers and sisters. So may Allah azza wa jal

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

enable us to help them

00:35:00--> 00:35:22

Allah azza wa jal give us a better understanding of our religion. May Allah azza wa jal make us among those who listen to the guidance and follow the best of it. Just like Mao Zedong. Once again, I thank the brothers and sisters and survivors for giving me this opportunity to talk about the month of show one.

00:35:24--> 00:35:31

I know there are some questions, so we still have some time for questions. If you have

00:35:33--> 00:35:49

a thought on why they can share just have a level of hatred for your beneficial insights on the topic. So the first question we have is, how do we live one's spirit if they feel that their Ramadan is not accepted and that discourages them?

00:35:51--> 00:36:43

One of the worst things is to have that thinking about Allah azza wa jal, or Allah would not forgive me. Never. Allah azza wa jal reminded us in Surah twosome Surah 12. What jacobellis Is Salam said in Hola, hey, Sonia Rohilla The only people who despair from the mercy of Allah in the total caffeine are only the disbelievers So never ever have this thinking, actually, this is from the shaper. The shaytan wants you to feel or believe that your sin or what you've done, is not worth or you've seen is too big for Allah. So just to forgive Allah azza wa jal said in Allah Pharaoh, Virginia, Allah azza wa jal forgives all sins. So there is no way for sure to tell that your deeds are not accepted.

00:36:44--> 00:37:01

Just as yes, there is no way for sure to tell that your deeds are accepted. But you always have hope of Allah azza wa jal that he did accept your needs. And if anything, that, okay, maybe my needs are not accepted. Actually, this means we should do more.

00:37:02--> 00:37:11

You see, when the child is crawling as a baby, and starts trying to stand up, but then cannot stand up.

00:37:12--> 00:37:20

He doesn't give up. He tries and tries until he's able to stand up and walk the same thing. If you feel that

00:37:21--> 00:37:29

maybe your needs are not accepted. And believe me, this is not the right feeling. You shouldn't feel like that. You see, because in Ramadan,

00:37:30--> 00:37:47

what else you could have done better? That's the question. If there was something you're sure of, you could have done better. Then maybe now is the time where you can improve yourself, but never feel that Oh, my needs are not accepted. So I will just

00:37:48--> 00:37:57

do whatever I want. No, this is from the shaman. So always have this motivation that I could do more.

00:37:58--> 00:37:59

I could do more.

00:38:00--> 00:38:43

I could please Allah azza wa jal. There is more than one way to please Allah azza wa jal. You are able to read Quran, you are able to do vicar, you're able to wake up in the middle of the night. So pray to Allah azza wa jal, tahajjud Subhan Allah always in constant a better performing fasting, fasting, Monday and Thursday. And by the way, I didn't mention that during the talk, that if you target the six days of Chawan, during Monday and Thursday, that's even better. This way, yes, because this is General knuffel, which is fasting, Monday and Thursday, and they just happen to be in Chawan. And you are fasting the six days so in sha Allah, you will have the reward of both.

00:38:43--> 00:39:19

That's different from making up the days of Ramadan inshallah. So if someone was thinking, Is it possible, or is it better to fast Monday and Thursday, then like, Tuesday and Wednesday? Yes, because there is virtue for fasting Monday and Thursday, because the prophets are sent to mention that the deeds are going to be lifted Praise to Allah azza wa jal, so he loves to be fasting during those days. So this is a good choice of doing the fast

00:39:21--> 00:39:24

is have a low python shell. So are there any more Amel

00:39:25--> 00:39:55

for Shaohua that we can do other than the six fasts? As I said, so one is the gate for the season of HUD. So, if you are unable and the chance are in our time in this year, most likely we will not be able to if you are not able, so you look at the other Ibaadat that you could do one or the other about that. Ask yourself this question. What I have been doing during Ramadan,

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

there are certain about that we cannot do that.

00:40:02--> 00:40:23

Doing salata, tarawih, for instance, we cannot do now. Yes. But reading Quran, I started that Ramadan and not just reading Quran specifically the plan of reading Catalan finishing the entire Quran. Do that. So the Amman, the deeds that you have initiated in Ramadan, continue that in the month of Shawwal.

00:40:25--> 00:40:32

That is a good start. And then the general a bad that a Muslim would do in other months.

00:40:40--> 00:41:09

So for the next question, it's not really relevant to the topic, but it's regarding the Palestinian issue. So besides making dua for Palestinians, should we be very active in posting it in on social media, etc? What else can we do more? Yes, as I said, raising awareness is very important. I personally, and all of you actually, I don't believe that any one of us attending here is over 80 years old.

00:41:10--> 00:41:54

So we haven't witnessed the first massacre that our brothers and sisters in Palestine faced. We haven't witnessed the burning of a messy the Luxor then why we are still talking about it, because this is what we have known from the people that told us the truth. We see now in our time, how the truth is diverted. And now, how Hamas is becoming a terrorist organization. And the terrorist is really military machine and system, they are called defense, and they are

00:41:55--> 00:42:15

legitimate. We see that in our time. So what will happen in generations to come? So we have to be very active, yes. Or you are keyboard warrior or true. We're not just doing that we're not relying on that, but we are doing that. Raising awareness is very important. Make to

00:42:17--> 00:42:33

support them with money. This is part of jihad. When you look at jihad, Allah azza wa jal mentioned in the Quran or Jana to be a Mali word for saying they perform jihad with their money and their selves. So Allah azza wa jal started with jihad with money.

00:42:34--> 00:43:03

They need resources. So look for trusted organizations that now a lot of people lost their homes, just imagine, because you are a Muslim standing up for your rights, they bombed your house, and now you are homeless, where do you go, but people came and they rushed to your help? How would you feel? So supporting them financially is one of the strongest ways to help them.

00:43:04--> 00:43:27

Raising awareness and talking about their just cause? That's a way to support them. Dua is also another way. It's not the only way as many people want you to think oh, we can only make dua No, we can do a lot. At least if we cannot physically be there, we can do a lot. And those things in sha Allah, as a start, they are sufficient for them.

00:43:30--> 00:43:46

To hide and check. So the next question is when Allah subhanaw taala talks about our victory against them in Surah Al Israa. Are there any conditions for us to have to gain that win? Is it just about surrendering our iman or is it just because of the disunity of the Ummah

00:43:47--> 00:43:50

it's worth? Actually, Allah azza wa jal

00:43:52--> 00:43:57

mentioned the condition in surah Allah Imran Khan tumhara on Mateen Project Linus

00:43:59--> 00:44:03

to retrieve our preference that Allah azza wa jal gave to us.

00:44:04--> 00:44:06

There are conditions

00:44:08--> 00:44:48

because even the children of Israel, they were at one time preferred by Allah azza wa jal, but when they disobeyed Allah azza wa jal, they lost that preference. It doesn't help now to say, I am a Muslim, so I am better. You are a Muslim, so show proof that you are better. If you are a Muslim, it doesn't mean that the fire does not burn you. If you are a Muslim, and you don't know how to swim, it doesn't mean that you will not drown. There are Sunon of Allah azza wa jal there are ways of Allah those ways they don't change soon at Allah He let the color theory baddie

00:44:49--> 00:45:00

the Sunnah of Allah that has already proceeded while untidy Delhi sunnah Tila hate Abdullah you will not find a change of the Sunnah of Allah. Okay, so

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

What is the Sunnah of Allah? subhanaw taala what are the conditions?

00:45:05--> 00:45:10

That Morona the macros? You enjoy the good? You don't say

00:45:11--> 00:45:19

it's not my business. No, that Morona very matter of what then how not Anil Mancha and you forbid the evil.

00:45:21--> 00:45:36

What took me no Nabila and you believe in Allah. The command came in plural. From the beginning of the Quran until the end. Allah azza wa jal is reminding us of the unity of the ummah. yakka Naboo do not yet.

00:45:38--> 00:46:13

Inna, guide us, not a me guide me. You're talking to Allah alone? Yes. But it's not about you. It's about everyone else. So the same thing, if we are united, if we are in Tanzania rely on SubCom we are upholding the religion of Allah, Allah azza wa jal will give us victory. Victory is not easy. We have to fulfill those conditions that Morona will narrow for then Helena Animoca. How hard is it for you to say that what's happening to our brothers and sisters in Palestine is injustice.

00:46:14--> 00:46:28

There are people who their livelihood is at stake. Literally, their work could be lost their jobs, they could be fired from because of their stance

00:46:29--> 00:46:51

because of that issue, but they didn't keep Subhanallah we have seen non Muslims talking about that. So as a community as an ummah, we have to be united. We have to uphold the truth. We have to join good and forbid evil that happens. Allah azza wa jal will grant us

00:46:54--> 00:47:09

a low Hidin check. So that'll be end of all the questions we have received. So we will conclude with any of the remarks you'd like to make regarding the issue or regarding the other issues we have discussed throughout the lecture inshallah. I'm already well, I

00:47:10--> 00:47:51

just asked Allah azza wa jal, again to enable us to be better Muslims, to enable us to have a better understanding of the religion to make us among those who listen to the guidance and follow the best of it. The teachings of Islam are Masha Allah, a lot and the ways to please Allah to please Allah azza wa jal are many. So to choose the best way that is the wisdom prioritizing, So may Allah azza wa jal to enable us to be able to prioritize and start with what is more important

00:47:54--> 00:47:55

Allahumma fiddlerman

00:47:56--> 00:48:13

way Serafina Fe M Rena with a bitOK Domina on sadhana alchemy caffeine in a lot more sort of about the caramel JD if you call your mechanic behind I mean a lot more sorry about that can you know if you feel this thing along Malika we sign it in Nigerian, a lot of mileage could be in for in Nam lack of rezoning.

00:48:14--> 00:48:16

I've been at enough dunya Hassan

00:48:17--> 00:48:34

Hassan okay now that now some allow a certain amount and Amina Muhammad why the annual Sunday Ah, man Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Because I cannot get off for holding this event and inshallah we will be able to have other events, shall we?

00:48:36--> 00:48:37

Just have a level of high tension
