00:01:26--> 00:01:27

about

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:40--> 00:01:41

he said

00:01:43--> 00:01:46

as the month of Ramadan entered.

00:01:47--> 00:01:51

He said either cannot or what will you let in Misha hurry Ramadan.

00:01:53--> 00:01:56

Sophie that is shayateen. One Murata told Jin

00:02:24--> 00:02:29

What Allah He wrote a call Amina now, without the caffeine you couldn't Elijah.

00:02:31--> 00:02:33

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

that on the first night of Ramadan

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

when Ramadan starts

00:02:42--> 00:02:45

the devils are shackled and chained up,

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

as well

00:02:48--> 00:02:51

as the Djinn the worst of them.

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

And on this first night,

00:02:57--> 00:03:01

the gates of the Hellfire are locked.

00:03:02--> 00:03:04

Not a single door left open.

00:03:07--> 00:03:14

And all the gates of Jannah are opened up with a single door shut.

00:03:16--> 00:03:18

And then a caller calls out.

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

Old DOER of good,

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

come forward

00:03:25--> 00:03:29

and old DOER of evil, now is the time to stop.

00:03:30--> 00:03:34

And then he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah subhanahu wa taala

00:03:36--> 00:03:46

has a set number of people who are freed from the hellfire. And then he said that is in every single night of the nights of Ramadan.

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

And so my dear brothers and sisters

00:03:54--> 00:03:55

today is the fourth day of Ramadan.

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

And we are still in the beginning of this blessed month.

00:04:02--> 00:04:07

Now is the time to take advantage of these days.

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

Now is the time

00:04:12--> 00:04:15

to change ourselves. Now is the time

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

to come forward

00:04:20--> 00:04:22

to do good deeds.

00:04:24--> 00:04:30

And as for our sins that we have become so accustomed to, now is the time

00:04:31--> 00:04:37

to stop. Now is the time you won't get any better time than this.

00:04:38--> 00:04:48

And so if you find yourself still committing sin issues in this month in which the shayateen and the devils are chained up,

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

then you have to ask yourself

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

what is the reason?

00:04:54--> 00:04:58

You have to ask yourself why am I still persisting in the sin

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

So if you're still persisting in the sins,

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

then it's most likely because

00:05:08--> 00:05:09

of your evil knifes.

00:05:11--> 00:05:20

It's no longer because of shaitan, but rather, your evil inclining us that doesn't want to give up

00:05:21--> 00:05:25

that doesn't want to give up these evil ways that you become so accustomed to.

00:05:27--> 00:05:29

And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:05:31--> 00:05:33

those who do not

00:05:35--> 00:05:38

stop committing evil in this month

00:05:41--> 00:05:49

then it's because of their selves, and not because of anyone else. And that's why on the Day of Judgment,

00:05:52--> 00:05:57

each and every single one of us, our shaytaan, our devil that is with us

00:05:59--> 00:06:02

will disassociate himself from us.

00:06:03--> 00:06:11

Walk on according Rob banner. Now 22 Who, what I can can have you bothered him buried

00:06:12--> 00:06:15

on that day when they come before Allah subhana who were to add

00:06:17--> 00:06:23

our devil and our shaytaan our clean will say Yara

00:06:24--> 00:06:32

I am not the reason for him to go astray. I did not cause him to go astray, but rather he went astray on him on his own.

00:06:34--> 00:06:36

And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:06:37--> 00:06:41

now that the devils have been chained up,

00:06:44--> 00:06:45

now is the time

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

to unfasten ourselves

00:06:51--> 00:06:56

from the chains of our evil inclining pneus

00:06:57--> 00:06:59

and turn back to Allah subhanahu Adana,

00:07:01--> 00:07:04

insincere Toba in sincere repentance

00:07:05--> 00:07:06

and change our way

00:07:08--> 00:07:21

BarakAllahu li welcome Phil Khurana when whenever anyone er can be Matthew Himalaya it was declared Hakeem Kulu Mathis maroon Western federal law Haley welcome Melissa you didn't see me and could lead them

whenever the wanna illa Allah wa he mean worshiping Allah? Allah Allah who was the who

00:07:58--> 00:08:27

was the head when no Mohammed Abdullah who are solo sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi women Tebbe I wouldn't be sending you know your medium and bad. Yeah, you have another ad for toquilla How are you bad Allah? What are people who physically when Najwa Yeah, you have lady in Tapachula Hello, Tom, do you have some academic related? What the hula in Allah has a beautiful Maroon? My dear brothers and sisters.

00:08:28--> 00:08:29

Abdullah had been our best Radi Allahu Anhu.

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

He says about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:08:37--> 00:08:44

Can I urge woodenness that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most generous of people.

00:08:45--> 00:08:49

There was nobody who could compare it to his generosity.

00:08:51--> 00:08:54

What can I do what Domeier coulomb funeral Milan

00:08:56--> 00:08:57

Pina Yahoo Gibreel

00:08:59--> 00:09:13

and he was even more generous in the month of Ramadan when Gibreel would come to me him so can Eduardo Bill Haile MENA regional masala and so he was

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

even more generous.

00:09:17--> 00:09:21

Then the wind when it blows.

00:09:22--> 00:09:32

And so the scholars of Hadith when they explain this hadith they say that what this means is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was even quicker.

00:09:34--> 00:09:38

He was even faster in giving in being generous.

00:09:41--> 00:09:54

When there would be a need that would arise in the month of Ramadan, he will be even quicker out giving than the wind when it blows when he blows.

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

This wind when it blows and it's continuous and it brings back

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

to everything,

00:10:02--> 00:10:04

to everything that it passes by.

00:10:05--> 00:10:06

And so why

00:10:07--> 00:10:23

is giving in sadhaka and being generous? Why is it more special and more rewarding in the month of Ramadan? Firstly, because all good deeds in general are multiplied

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

in virtuous times, like the month of Ramadan, and so whatever good deed we do

00:10:31--> 00:10:42

whatever good we did whatever good deed we do in the month of Ramadan, it is multiplied more than if it was done outside of the month of Ramadan. Secondly,

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

the month of Ramadan is a time

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

it is a time

00:10:53--> 00:10:58

to help the worshipers, those who are busy in a vida

00:11:00--> 00:11:15

and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said regarding those who feed the fasting person manfaat Taurus or even cannula who meet LuaJIT while you're in the hula lion CUSUM in Algeria he shows

00:11:18--> 00:11:24

that whoever gives food to the one who is fasting to break his fast way,

00:11:25--> 00:11:34

then he will have the reward of the fasting person without any reward diminishing from that fasting person. Thirdly

00:11:39--> 00:11:41

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam guaranteed Gen.

00:11:43--> 00:11:51

He guaranteed gender for those who combine fasting with generosity with the giving in their sadaqa

00:11:52--> 00:11:58

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in the village Jannetty who rotten

00:11:59--> 00:12:07

in nothing, Jannetty whare Ventura whoo hoo hoo ha mean boo Tony ha wobbu Herman boohoo rehab,

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

that in general there are chambers

00:12:12--> 00:12:13

of which

00:12:16--> 00:12:22

it's outside can be seen from the inside and the outside and the inside can be seen from the outside.

00:12:23--> 00:12:34

So the Companions they asked Aldo Lehmann here ya rasool Allah, Who are these chambers for Yasuda Allah. And so he said, Son, Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:12:35--> 00:12:39

He or Lehmann pluggable Kalam what Oklahoma?

00:12:41--> 00:12:41

What Adama

00:12:45--> 00:12:50

what commonly it was Salah was a lovely lady. When asked

00:12:52--> 00:13:02

for things, he said, they are for those who beautify their speech, they only say what is proper and what is right.

00:13:04--> 00:13:08

And it is for those who field

00:13:10--> 00:13:32

who give food to people to eat. And for those who continuously fast and for those who stand up in the middle of the night, and they pray while everyone else is asleep. And so the month of Ramadan we find all of these four qualities come together in the month of Ramadan.

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

Fourthly,

00:13:35--> 00:13:43

both fasting and giving him sadaqa or means for having our sins forgiven.

00:13:45--> 00:13:48

Our sins expiated and

00:13:49--> 00:13:52

a shield a barrier between us and the Hellfire

00:13:53--> 00:13:56

for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, or Swier who do not know

00:13:59--> 00:14:03

that fasting is a shield, protecting us from the Hellfire

00:14:05--> 00:14:07

as for giving him sadaqa

00:14:09--> 00:14:11

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:14:12--> 00:14:14

he said what that will be shortly Tamra

00:14:15--> 00:14:27

takuna Hello, Bishop Kitamura protect yourselves from the fire, please a barrier between yourselves and the Hellfire even if you'd be with half of a date.

00:14:29--> 00:14:32

And so we find that both of these acts are very bad.

00:14:33--> 00:14:44

Fasting and giving in sadaqa are means we're having our sins expiated and protecting us from the hellfire. Finally

00:14:47--> 00:14:49

the reason for why

00:14:50--> 00:14:54

generosity and giving sadaqa is more special in the month of Ramadan

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

is because our fasting no matter how much

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

We try to perfect it there will be shortcomings,

00:15:05--> 00:15:12

there will be those shortcomings that affect our fast. So, if we want,

00:15:13--> 00:15:15

if we want to make up for those shortcomings,

00:15:16--> 00:15:20

then we can do that by giving us all sadaqa

00:15:22--> 00:15:45

it makes up for those shortcomings. And this is why we give the cattle filter at the end of Ramadan because it is a means of purifying those days in which we fasted, purifying them of whatever deficiencies there were in them. And so my dear brothers and sisters

00:15:47--> 00:15:58

let us be generous during this month of Ramadan give and do not withhold, give up do not withhold. Don't let shaytaan to come to you.

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

And to tell you no

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

I need this money.

00:16:05--> 00:16:10

But rather give it give it for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada

00:16:14--> 00:16:32

he asks, who is out there? Who will give him who will give him subhanho wa Taala alone Mandela the Ukri boudoir caravan Hassan for you. If a hula hoop above and Kathira who is it that will give a good loan

00:16:34--> 00:16:44

to Allah subhanahu wa taala so that Allah me multiply for him, meaning in reward in the Quran, one of the companions when he heard this,

00:16:45--> 00:16:47

he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:16:49--> 00:16:54

And he said y'all rasool Allah, is Allah in need of us giving him alone.

00:16:56--> 00:17:04

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yes, not that he is in need, but rather it is we who are in need.

00:17:07--> 00:17:12

And then about data he said, You're a pseudo light if that is the case, then give me your hand.

00:17:14--> 00:17:18

He gave me his hand and he said he auto pseudo watt. I have a wall.

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

Meaning I have a form behind this wall. There are over 600 Day palm trees. I have given this as a loan to Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:17:34--> 00:17:37

And then, when dad passed away,

00:17:39--> 00:17:42

it is said that he was martyred in the Battle of Oakland

00:17:43--> 00:17:45

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw his body.

00:17:47--> 00:17:48

He said, Yeah.

00:17:50--> 00:17:54

Now how many deep palm trees do you have in general?

00:17:57--> 00:17:59

And so what did he lose?

00:18:00--> 00:18:06

What did a Buddha Hulu's by giving what he gave a few trees

00:18:07--> 00:18:08

in this dunya

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

dirt,

00:18:11--> 00:18:13

the palm trees

00:18:15--> 00:18:17

What did he get in exchange for it?

00:18:21--> 00:19:05

So we ask Allah subhanahu Uttara to accept from us our acts of ADA and our good deeds in this month of Ramadan and we ask Allah subhanahu Metalla to make us from among those who are for most who are racing to do good deeds in this month of Ramadan how there was on lucidly Moroccan Akuma Allah, Allah Allah vehicle Mohammed bin Abdullah Cana Moroccan Vida Nicaragua congenial, a few Runa for call at a high and a cold and Karina in Allahumma Iike who also do an island maybe?
