Useless Pelican alaikum.
I also feel lubeck I'm
warming up a la hora Sula, who
has 1000 hobbema am about
my dear brothers and sisters.
Today is the 15th of Ramadan.
Half of the month has gone by.
And it's true what Allah subhanho wa Taala says
about this month
They are simply a number of dating.
And so it seems as if it was only yesterday that we were welcoming this month.
And yet today
we have already passed half of it.
And so the countdown begin.
It was only a few days ago that we were looking forward to this month. But now we're already counting down
So my dear brothers and sisters at halftime,
we need to do a reality check.
And we need to ask ourselves where we stand.
As half of the month has gone by,
we need to ask ourselves
how much of this month
in the data of Allah Subhana Allah
we need to ask ourselves
where we stand.
And so if we were lagging behind,
now is the time to pick up.
If we were doing good,
then now is not the time to stop. But rather it is a time to increase in good.
And so although the DS are decreasing,
although the DS are decreasing,
we need to increase
that are a bad and our good deal.
So ask herself
ask herself where you stand.
With regards to your fasting.
Allah subhana wa tada tells us that fasting is supposed to achieve something
and that is the taqwa of Allah subhana wa tada
as your taqwa increase, as the days have been going by,
ask yourself where do you stand with regards
to the Big Bang.
What a loss of Hanna who would Allah has made
And obligation upon each and every single one of us.
Where do you stand with regards your five D lease on a lot?
There are those unfortunately who fast the month of Ramadan but they don't pray.
And so before anything else the first thing we need to be asking ourselves we need to be asking ourselves
is about what Allah has made compulsory and obligatory upon us.
There is nothing that we get closer to Allah through
then what he has made obligatory upon us
matakohe Robert, Elijah,
have done Illa Mima to hurry
and then after the water bath
ask yourself where you stand with regards to the Nuffield.
So if you find yourself bringing salata tarawih, but you're not,
you're not perfecting your five D Salawat. There's a problem.
So we need to prioritize
what is obligatory then after that moving on, to what is not obligatory?
So my dear brothers and sisters,
as we count down the days of Ramadan,
by the time
the month is over,
there will only be one of two people.
We will be in two categories.
One are the winners
and the other are the losers.
There is no third.
So yes, this month is a competition.
And we should treat it like that.
Wasabi who Isla ofuro Timmy Robbie can
compete with one another.
A lot command does us to compete with one another?
are the forgiveness of Allah subhanahu wa tada?
Have we been doing that?
Have we been looking at those who are better than us?
In terms of our relationship with the loss of Hannah who with data?
have we been comparing ourselves
with the people of the dunya?
And where have I reached
in terms of my status in the dunya?
What are we competing for in this dunya?
Are we competing for wealth? Are we competing for a status in this dunya?
Or are we competing
for the forgiveness of a loss of Hannah who was the highlight
not only the forgiveness of a loss of Hannah who would data
but as the law says compete
is like that of the heavens and earth combined.
This is what we should be competing for my dear brothers and sisters in this month of Ramadan in this month of competition.
And so Allah subhanahu wa tada
made the end
of the month of Ramadan
to be better than its beginning.
And this is not only with regards to the month of Ramadan.
But we notice
all virtuous times.
All those times that Allah has made virtuous
he has made the last part of it to be better than the first part.
And so, no more drama
is a virtuous day.
And the last hour of it.
Allah subhanho wa Taala accept the dua
of those who call upon him.
the first 10 days of total hidden
Are virtuous days, but it is towards the end
of the ninth and the 10th Yamuna. These are the best of those days. And on Yom Malhotra on the day of arafah, it is the last hours that are more virtuous. Likewise, the month of Ramadan is virtuous.
And the last 10 nights
in this month are the best nights of the year.
And so my dear brothers and sisters,
the reason for this
tend to weaken
and our souls start to lose steam towards the end.
We're full of energy in the beginning.
And then we start to lose steam and we start to slack off.
And so that's why Allah subhanahu wa tada
he made the ending more virtuous
so that our determination and our hymnal remains high
and our energy
gets a boost towards the end. Because that is the time
that we need the boost.
And so those who are lagging behind in the beginning of Ramadan
start to pick up towards the end.
They are better than those
who are doing well in the beginning.
Start to slow down towards the end.
And this is true across the board in any competition in any game for the winners, those who put more energy
into what remain
in the end.
So my dear brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
that the result of our D
depend on their ending.
What matters is how we finish off not how we start.
And that's why
a person who may have seen wrote his life
becomes at the end of his life
with a sincere Toba
like those who accept Islam at the end of their life,
as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
there's only an arm's length and arm span left between them and the hellfire.
But because of Allah decree
for them to accept Islam
at the very end of their life,
they will end up being from the inhabitants of Geneva.
And so what matters is the end, not the beginning.
At all my dear brothers and sisters
of the month remain,
now is the time to put in more effort. So if you are lagging behind, now is a time to catch up. And if you were doing well, from the beginning, then now is not the time
to take arrests, but rather the time to put in more effort

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was described by a bass Ravi Allahu anhu ma
ba ba says
and in Nabhi use Allahu alayhi wa sallam he wanted to know
what kind of goofy Ramadan you know, your debris
can add, why do Bihari minari hurry myrcella
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was the most generous of people.
And he was even more generous
when gibreel used to come to him in the month of Ramadan.
So, he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the month of Ramadan, when gibreel would come to him, he was more generous
then the blowing wind
then the blowing wind
that he was quicker
giving in the month of Ramadan,
then the wind when you blow
it has it been harder, he says.
Why did he specify Why did he specifically mentioned the blowing wind? He says because the blowing wind it is continuous
and whatever it comes across it benefits.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was more generous
So why is the month of Ramadan special?
When it comes to giving and being generous?
There are many reasons.
But among these reasons is that Firstly,
the month of Ramadan is a virtuous time.
And it is in virtuous times that Allah subhanho wa Taala multiplies our good deeds.
So although sadaqa at any time is multiplied greatly,
as Allah says, up to 700 times,
it is even more greater
and multiplied even more in the month of Ramadan.
the month of Ramadan
is a month in which people are worshipping Allah Subhana Who is that?
People are fasting.
People are praying.
And so since the month of Ramadan is the month of worship,
whoever helps a person who is worshiping Allah
in his worship,
that he receives the reward of the one who is worshiping Allah.
So as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Men are saw even
Allahu mithila he saw
the hula assuming a jury saw
the whoever feeds
the person who is fasting, meaning he helps him to break his fast. He gives him some dates. He gives him a meal to break his fast when
he will have the same reward as the one who is fasting
and the reward of the one who is fasting will not decrease in any way.
No matter what it is, no matter which good deed it is, if you help someone to do it, then you will get the reward of the one who is doing.
those who fasts
and those who give in sada
and those who pray at night
and those who speak only good
for them is a special reward.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
in the region that you refer Rafa
euro Whoo hoo ha mean Butoh Neha Babu Neha
they're in general are chamber
they can be seen from the outside what is inside they can be seen from the outside and what is on the outside can be seen from the inside.
So, they asked your rasulillah
demon here, who are these chambers for
So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Lehman valuable.
Well, Oklahoman Tom
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
these chambers in Geneva
are for those
who speak good word.
And for those who feel goofy people,
and for those who regularly leave hat
and for those who pray at night, when everyone else is asleep,
this Harry was greeted as hessen but I suppose of Heidi.
And so all of these four qualities are present. Now in the month of Ramadan, we are fasting. We are praying at night.
We're not allowed to speak anything but good.
And what remains
is to give
to feed others.
both fasting and giving in sadhaka are a means by which we can have our sins forgiven.
And they are both means
by which we can protect ourselves
from the punishment of the hellfire.
And so when we combine these two
it's even greater in having our sins forgiven and being protected
from the hellfire.
without a shadow of a doubt
will have deficient
none of us
can guarantee a perfect pass.
But it is the perfect fast
that Allah subhanho wa Taala
when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said mon sama Ramadan Amen. And he said, who fear Allah una tarde de means me that the one who passed the month of Ramadan with a man and seeking the reward of Allah, and for him, all of his previous sins will be forgiven. But for Who is this
the one who pays attention to his fast
he doesn't do what nullifies his fast.
And so many of us, our fasting gets affected by not controlling our tongue
by not paying attention to our intention
and through other ways by which there are shortcomings in our fast
and slow so the one
who gives in sort of
he makes up for that shortcoming. And
he makes up for that shortcoming in his fasting. Which is why at the end of Ramadan, we give the capital for
to purify our fasting from the evil and the shortcoming.
And so, my dear brothers and sisters remember
that the month of Ramadan is a month
and So, remember that your wealth
your wealth is something that will eventually disappear.
But what will remain
is what you invest your wealth in
and that is giving your wealth
for the sake of a loss of kind of home with that
giving it for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa tada
menjalani yo creo que la Cadogan hesson a yoga hula who is euro?
Who is the one who will lend to Allah a good loan.
So that Allah
will multiply it for him.
When we go into a transaction with Allah,
it is not
getting something back equally.
when we go into a transaction with Allah,
we are getting something back multiply.
Many hundreds of times
one of the companions heard this if
you went to the Prophet sallallahu it was sent.
And this was Abu Abu
Dhabi Allahu Allah.
He said yada yada Sula, WA
Is it true?
That Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to give him subhanho wa Taala alone.
How is that possible?
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yes.
I said Yasuda law open your hand.
And he put his hands into his hand.
And he said Yara sort of law,
the wall of aboda
he had a wall behind which was a farm that had over 600 deep pump rooms. He said yeah, Yasukawa.
My wall, meaning my farm.
I have given it
as a loan to Allah Subhana who was
in this was where he used to live with his family.
When his wife found out, how does she react?
He said Yeah.
What you have done,
you have given a good loan.
You have given the best loan that anyone could give.
And then it was the same Abba Dada.
Who went and fought in the Battle of Ohio.
And he fought until he was killed. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was going around visiting
In the Battle of praying for them.
He came across the body of other data.
And what he saw him knelt down and he said
how many trees have you changed over the data?
For the bees of Jenna.
And so what did he get in return?
He gave up the trees of this dunya
he gave up dates. He gave up wealth
his agenda, which is as wide as the heavens and
so my dear brothers and sisters
this Ramadan is like no other Ramadan.
It is a Ramadan in which
our massages have been closed and shut down.
And during the month of Ramadan, we used to give generously to the same massage.
So now is the time
to give that good loan to Allah subhanho wa Taala
In exchange for the forgiveness of Allah
and everlasting life engine,
to your messages. The avenues are open, we could give online we could give at the comfort of our home.
And we could give
without anyone knowing. And the best sort of
is to give when no one else is aware.
The best sort of car is to give it conceal.
And so we ask Allah Subhana who will
accept from us our fasting an hour
an hour so that
they will so lucidly mu Rahim Allah.
