and hamdulillah Harrowby Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Hill. I mean, what? He was so happy he remained about no doubt everyone is completely aware of the fact that Ramadan has passed so quickly. It was almost yesterday that it started and we welcome the month and now we're bidding it farewell. So in this hotbar we would like to see what are some possible lessons and contemplations from the Quick passing of the month of Ramadan? What does that tell us? And what does that make us aware of in our lives? First of all, the idea of time passing more quickly was mentioned by the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam as one of the signs before the Day of Judgment, Imam Hamid narrates
in his Muslim himolla from Abu Huraira, the long line who, that the prophets of Allah wa sallam said lert, Abu Musa had yet to power a busy man that the Hour will not be established, meaning the Day of Judgment will not come until it ACARA Busy Man time will get nearer or closer, meaning shorter. So some of the scholars said, this is a reference to how the modes of transportation will change. And they have a good argument, they said, In those days, you used to measure distance by time. So this place is a distance of three days, this place is a distance of one month. And then when the means of transportation change, that place that used to take you two months to get to now only takes a few
hours to get to. So that's one explanation. And it's very plausible. The other most popular and more common one is that there will be less Baraka in time a day will still have 24 hours in it, an hour will have 60 minutes in it, but you will be able to well, you will not be able to do as much within that same amount of time. It's as if Allah subhanaw taala takes the baraka and the blessing outside of that time. And it seems that we are aware of that, and we've experienced it in our lifetime, especially those who are a little older, have experienced this in our lifetime, how time passes so quickly, the Hadith that we mentioned in Muslim Ahmed, but and maybe sauce Allah mentions that a
year will pass like a month and a month will pass like a date.
And if we're not there yet, we're we're definitely headed in that direction. So time itself now seems shorter, and you get less done in the date. One of the things you can do about that there are certain things you can do that will bring about Baraka in your day. And we'll take an example in it's an excellent example from shareholder Islam. Even Tamia Rahim Allah.
As you know, he used to write an a tremendous amount of volumes and books, and he would spend a lot of hours writing. And he would mention that there were days when he would start writing at right after fajr. And he would write until Maghrib. So you would imagine with all this time and using all this daylight, you would write the largest amount in this period. But then he says there will there will be some days when he will make thicker, he will pray Fudger in the masjid, and sit in the masjid making the Quran until mother until the whole time. And then he will only start writing from the horror until mothering. So that means he spent somewhere around five hours or so making the call
of Allah azza wa jal five hours that he otherwise would have spent writing. So you would imagine he would write a lot less in a day like this. But he would say that on days when he makes liquor until the horror, he would write five times more material five times more. So that means there are certain things you can do in your day to bring about a little bit more Baraka, such as making the case of Allah subhanaw taala, such as finishing and completing the morning as car after you pray Fudger you finish all the car for the day. And those of you who regularly complete the car, you'll notice a difference between the day where you finish them completely, and the day where you skip them, how
much more you get done, how much more Baraka Allah subhanaw taala puts in your day. So the first thing we see and we become aware of from how quickly Ramadan passed is how time is passing. And when you're aware that time is passing, you're aware that your life is passing. So how Ramadan passed just now is similar to how our life is passing
If and if there is a reminder in how people feel regret that the month is almost over, no doubt.
Most, if not all of us feel I wish I did more in the month of Ramadan. I wish I prayed more. I wish I made more dhikr I wish I recited more Quran. So now towards the end of the month, we start to feel this regret. And that should give us a reminder of how towards the end of life, people feel regret, how on the Day of Judgment, people feel regret. Allah subhanaw taala described it as the day of Hazara the day of regret when people regret every minute they wasted their, how they wasted their life and how they didn't take advantage of their time. So in that same way, when Ramadan is over, it reminds us of that, and makes us aware of that. So we put effort now in our life, and we don't have
the same regret when our life is over. And it's a reminder how our life is short as well. Just like the month is short, just like Time is flying, our life is passing by. So are we going to make the best of it? Are we going to invest in it or not? The other thing is that you see that no matter what you did in the month of Ramadan. And if you stood for hours and you felt pain and your feet were swollen, or if you sat for hours reciting the Quran, that the minute the next day comes that pain, that effort, that difficulty is gone. You don't feel it anymore. If someone broke their back, trying to worship Allah subhanaw taala to their best of their ability, and even their body couldn't take it
the next day, the pain of yesterday is gone. And the day after that the pain is gone. It's the end of the day you will find that it was you invested your time. And whatever difficulty you experience, it just disappeared. And this is how the early Muslims were like they worship Allah subhanaw taala. And sometimes their body would give up
a beautiful story of abou Muslim or non Muslim and how I learned Rahim Allah from the Taliban. He was praying at night, and then his feet started to hurt him. So in his break between the record he actually struck his his legs. He struck his feet. And he said Oh, Johan was horrible. Mohammed. A. Yesterday you will be he doing Anna? Do the companions of Muhammad think they're going to have him exclusively without us, meaning they were his companions in this dunya. And they will be his companions in the Afra. But do they think it's going to be just them exclusively? He said, Well, Allah Helen is the human Nomad on hold. He said we're going to crowd them at the pool of the
prophets of Allah Tala. So they know that they left real men behind them. Yeah. And it's beautiful that he is in pain. He hurt, but he wants to keep going. And where is that pain of his today? Where is it? And the next day? Where was the pain from studying at night? or the week after it just went? It disappeared? Yeah, so he might as well put his time and effort into worshipping Allah azza wa jal.
And the other thing we learn is, and we see clearly the importance of patience in obedience to Allah azza wa jal, we always hear the scholars mentioned point patience is required in three areas in staying away from the Haram and calamities and in being patient upon the obedience of Allah azza wa jal, the last 10 nights of Ramadan is when the prophets Allah Salam would tighten his belt and put his best effort and you find in communities in the last 10 years people this is when people now their patient starts to wear off their sleepless nights starts to catch up with them. And they start to the numbers start to dwindle in the misogyny the exact opposite. But you see with your eyes the
importance of patience, with the obedience of Allah patience in worshipping Allah subhanaw taala Coolock holy hada Mustapha Allah Allah them Nivola comin Jamia don't overstock raffia foes almost offering ask Allah subhanaw taala for his forgiveness indeed those who ask for his forgiveness show prosper
and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah hill I mean what early wasabia Jemaine about
will conclude with what we've said before on dismember and that is, that Allah subhanaw taala loves to see effort from his slaves, and it might be that you will not succeed in in accomplishing your goal as far as worship as far as reciting the Quran, but you might succeed in pleasing Allah azza wa jal
And in the fact that you showed him that you tried to make effort that you tried to put some effort. And Allah says he loves to see effort from His servants and that's why he allowed an extended the life of a bliss he allowed him to live a long life, so that people will struggle against his temptation and struggle against his plotting. And Allah subhanaw taala loves to see you put effort. We mentioned a simple example of how Allah azza wa jal made vajor before sunrise. And if Allah subhanaw taala made Fudger at 11am, who would miss Fudger everybody would be from the people of Fajr. If Pam was during the day, who wouldn't be from the people of Clem, but Allah subhanaw taala
put it at a difficult time, because he wants to see effort from His servants, he wants to see you try it. The scholar said something about Salat al Fajr. They said, if someone sets his alarm clock for Fudger and he doesn't wake up, he sincerely tried to wake up for failure. But he didn't make it, he missed it. They said he doesn't get the sin of missing Fudger he doesn't get the reward of praying it on time, but he doesn't get a sin for missing it, because he made the effort. Whereas someone else who sets his alarm clock for 9:30am he's clearly not in his intention whatsoever to wake up for Fudger that person doesn't get the reward of praying Fudger on time and he gets the sin
of missing Fudger. But the difference between the two, even though they both failed, technically one of them put effort. So a few days left, there are just a few days left, just show Allah subhanaw taala that you are going to put effort in worship. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to assist us in that.
We ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us of those who recognize the truth as clear truth and follow the best of it, and to make us of those who recognize falsehood as clear falsehood and abstain from it for Lahoma and and haka Hakuna was naughty ba Why didn't allow Tila Balticon was witnessed in Alba Allahu Allah Jalla dunya kumara Homina Well, I'm a blogger in MENA whether it or no Remo Sirona
