And hamdulillah Hello Beloved alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah he, I mean,

00:00:24--> 00:01:14

he was so happy. I mean, I'm 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 sallallahu wasallam as one of the signs before the day of judgment. Mr. Mohammed narration is Mr. Durham, Allah, from Abu huraira, the Allahu anhu, that the Prophet

00:01:14--> 00:01:59

sallallahu Sallam said, lert upon musah had the power of as a man that the hour will not be established, meaning the day of judgment will not come until yet a part of is the 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

00:01:59--> 00:02:43

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 Will 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 mud. But Nevis also mentions that a year will pass like a month and a month will pass like a day.

00:02:44--> 00:03:08

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 day. One of the things you can do about that there are certain things you can do that will bring about Baraka in your date. And we'll take an example in it's an excellent example from shareholder Islam, even taymiyah, Rama Hola.

00:03:09--> 00:03:38

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 are days when he would start writing right after fudger. And he would write until mother. 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 Vicar he was pray fudger in the masjid, and sit in the masjid making the call

00:03:39--> 00:04:25

until mother until the whole time. And then he will only start writing from the hole until mother. So that means he spent somewhere around five hours or so making the curve Allah zillion 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 whole 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 about our company, such as making the curve Allah subhanaw taala, such as finishing and completing the morning as come after you pray fudger you finish all the car

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

for the day. And those of you who regularly complete the fifth car, you 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

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

And if there is a reminder in how people feel regret that the month is almost over, no doubt.

00:05:08--> 00:05:52

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 liquor, 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, and loss of how to describe that 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

00:05:52--> 00:06:42

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

00:06:42--> 00:07:03

the next day, the pain of yesterday is gone. And the day after that the pain is gone. And it's the end of the day you will find that it was you invested your time, in 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

00:07:04--> 00:07:47

a beautiful story of abou Muslim abou Muslim how Alani Rahim Allah from the Thai brain. He was praying at night, and then his feet started to hurt him. So in his break between the rockhard he actually struck his his legs, he struck his feet. And he said, Oh, you will notice harbor Mohammed. I, yesterday, your ob e do? 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 ashira. But do they think it's going to be just them exclusively? He said will la halen has a hemangioma on hold? He said, we're going to crowd them at the pool of the Prophet

00:07:47--> 00:08:10

sallallahu taala. So they know that they left real men behind them. Yeah, 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 then next day, where was the pain from standing 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 GA.

00:08:13--> 00:08:55

And the other thing we learn is, and we see clearly the importance of patience in obedience to Allah xojo We always hear the scholars mentioned what patience is required in three areas in staying away from the Haram in calamities, and in being patient upon the obedience of Allah azza wa jal, the last 10 nights of Ramadan is when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam 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 night starts to catch up with them. And they start to the numbers start to dwindle in the massaging the exact opposite. But you see with your eyes the

00:08:55--> 00:09:13

importance of patience, with the obedience of Allah patience in worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala pulo Kohli hada Mustapha La la la la comunidad de novo stock thoroughfare Fazal Mr Vereen ask Allah subhanaw taala for his forgiveness, Indeed, those who ask for forgiveness shall prosper

00:09:27--> 00:09:35

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah I mean, what are the here are some big main come about?

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

We'll 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

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

In the fact that you showed him that you tried to make effort that you tried to put some effort and a lot of love to see effort from his servants and that's why he allowed an extended the life of a police he allowed him to live a long life, so that people will struggle against his temptation and struggle against his blotting 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 Subhana Allah made fudger at 11am, who would miss fudger everybody would be from the people of Fujian. If cram was during the day, who wouldn't be from the people of camp. But Allah Subhana Allah put it at a

00:10:41--> 00:11:20

difficult time, because he wants to see effort from his servants. He wants to see you tried, the scholar said something about falafel fetcher. They said, if someone sets his alarm clock for failure, 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 is clearly not in his intention whatsoever to wake up for failure. That person doesn't get the reward of praying fudger on time and he gets the sin of

00:11:20--> 00:11:41

missing failure. 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 Subhana Allah to assist us in that

00:11:42--> 00:11:54

we ask Allah subhanaw taala 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 faults with as clear falsehood and abstain from it for lahoma didn't have to happen was not
