00:03:19--> 00:03:25

back home, warming up in LA how Rasulullah who are co defendants I was in Hawaii, about

00:03:31--> 00:03:38

when Allah subhanho wa Taala prescribed fasting the month of Ramadan and he said yeah, you handle Adina

00:03:40--> 00:03:47

Latina and then cootie Valley como su Yan Khanna, cootie ballerina in publikum La La Quinta de cool

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

when he prescribed fasting the month of Ramadan

00:03:53--> 00:03:55

and he told us the objective behind it.

00:03:56--> 00:03:58

There it is to achieve Taqwa.

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

After that he explained what this month is,

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

but not by referring to it as a month.

00:04:09--> 00:04:13

And so he did not say SubhanaHu Attallah that it is a month

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

but rather he said a year model that

00:04:19--> 00:04:24

he said that it is a limited number of days.

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

And there's a reason for that.

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

And that is to remind us

00:04:32--> 00:04:37

that these are a limited number of days. Yes, it's one month

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

but it's a month

00:04:41--> 00:04:44

that is made up of days that come and go.

00:04:46--> 00:04:47

And so today

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

we have already passed a 10th

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

of the month of Ramadan.

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

10 days have gone by

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

when it was only

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

As if it was yesterday that we had started the month.

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

And in this way, another 10 days will go by, and then another 10 days will go by and before we know it

00:05:14--> 00:05:17

before we know the month will be over.

00:05:18--> 00:05:23

And so the question is, where do me and you stand

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

at this point in the month of Ramadan?

00:05:29--> 00:05:32

What What have we so far put forward?

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

In our skill of good deeds?

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

Where do we stand?

00:05:40--> 00:05:44

Where do we stand in our relationship with Allah subhanho wa taala?

00:05:47--> 00:05:52

Is our state today like it was before Ramadan beginning?

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

Where

00:05:56--> 00:06:02

is our relationship with the book of ALLAH SubhanA wa, Medina, the Koran

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

this month, which is the month of the Quran?

00:06:07--> 00:06:10

Have we even opened up the Quran?

00:06:11--> 00:06:12

To start reciting it?

00:06:16--> 00:06:17

What is our relationship?

00:06:20--> 00:06:24

What is our relationship with our fellow brothers and sisters?

00:06:26--> 00:06:29

What is our relationship with our parents,

00:06:30--> 00:06:34

with our children, and so on and so forth. And so this

00:06:35--> 00:06:43

is a time now to stop and ask ourselves what have we done so far?

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

Now is the time my dear brothers and sisters,

00:06:48--> 00:06:52

to start filling our accounts with good deeds.

00:06:54--> 00:07:03

If we haven't done it so far, then now is the time now is the time to work hard and not to put it off and see later.

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

Because before we know it, the month will be over.

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

And this is why

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

this is why the people in the Grievers

00:07:16--> 00:07:18

the people who are not with us today,

00:07:19--> 00:07:20

they wish

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

that they could come back to this dunya to spend

00:07:25--> 00:07:27

only a single night of the month of Ramadan.

00:07:30--> 00:07:38

And that's why if you Josie Rahim Allah Allah he says, he says By Allah, by Allah, if the people of the greens

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

were told to make a wish,

00:07:44--> 00:07:45

they would wish

00:07:46--> 00:07:48

a single day of the month of Ramadan.

00:07:50--> 00:07:56

And likewise, AB Raja, he says that the greatest witch of the dead,

00:07:57--> 00:08:07

their greatest wish is to live is to live for an hour to come back to this dunya for an hour, to make up

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

to make up for what they missed of repentance,

00:08:13--> 00:08:17

of good deeds, while the people of the dunya

00:08:18--> 00:08:22

while the people of the dunya they are wasting their lives,

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

spending their lives

00:08:27--> 00:08:33

in that which does not benefit them. Rather some of them are even spending it in that which harms them

00:08:35--> 00:08:36

committing sins.

00:08:37--> 00:08:38

And it is mentioned

00:08:39--> 00:08:42

that there was a man who wants went to a graveyard.

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

And after he made dua,

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

he prayed to rockers.

00:08:52--> 00:08:54

And then he laid down on his side.

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

And he went to sleep.

00:08:58--> 00:09:04

So one of the inhabitants of the green rooms, he came to him in in his dream.

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

He came to him in his dream and he said

00:09:11--> 00:09:22

now while at allong that you guys, the people who are alive, you do good deeds, or you have the opportunity.

00:09:24--> 00:09:27

But you don't know meaning you don't know

00:09:29--> 00:09:32

the reality of life after death.

00:09:34--> 00:09:35

Whereas we

00:09:37--> 00:09:38

know now what?

00:09:40--> 00:09:43

As for us in the graves, we know the reality.

00:09:44--> 00:09:46

We know the reality of life after death.

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

But we don't have that opportunity

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

to do even a single good deed. And then he said to him, these two records of yours that you prayed I

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

I wish that they are in my record of DNS. They are more beloved to me than the dunya and all that is in the dunya

00:10:11--> 00:10:27

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

I've never had my dear brothers and sisters.

00:11:33--> 00:11:36

It is very saddening, and very unfortunate

00:11:38--> 00:11:41

that we have to spend yet another Ramadan

00:11:42--> 00:11:44

away from one another.

00:11:45--> 00:11:50

With our misogyny having to shut their doors on us.

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

This is our second Ramadan.

00:11:56--> 00:12:00

Although this Ramadan was different in that we started it

00:12:02--> 00:12:03

in the massager

00:12:05--> 00:12:06

and then we had to

00:12:07--> 00:12:09

we had to close its doors.

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

And so many of us are frustrated.

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

It's a difficult time. And it's not easy.

00:12:18--> 00:12:22

Especially having tasted the sweetness of Rebadow.

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

In the houses of Allah subhanahu wa taharah.

00:12:28--> 00:12:31

And then to have that to be stripped away from us.

00:12:33--> 00:12:35

And it's not easy, and it's difficult.

00:12:37--> 00:12:46

But the reality is that we need to remind ourselves that this is yet another test from Allah subhanahu.

00:12:48--> 00:12:50

This is a test from Allah subhanahu wa taharah.

00:12:52--> 00:12:59

And how does a believer deal with the tests and the trials that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes them to face

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

it will call you and he mentions

00:13:03--> 00:13:07

that people with respect to the trials and the tests of Allah.

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

They're not all at the same level.

00:13:12--> 00:13:15

But rather, they're on four different levels.

00:13:16--> 00:13:20

The first is the level of those who are impatient.

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

They become frustrated.

00:13:25--> 00:13:29

They can't handle that test at trial. And they're always complaining.

00:13:31--> 00:13:36

The second level is the level of those who are patient.

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

They put up with a difficulty

00:13:40--> 00:13:44

that tests they realize it's from Allah, and I'm going to be patient.

00:13:46--> 00:13:47

But that's where they stop.

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

Deep down inside. They're not satisfied. They're not happy. But they said you know what I'm gonna, I'm gonna bear with it picture.

00:13:58--> 00:14:00

He says the third level are those

00:14:02--> 00:14:03

who are not only patient

00:14:05--> 00:14:09

but who move on to the level of satisfaction,

00:14:10--> 00:14:11

contentment,

00:14:12--> 00:14:25

they're satisfied. They're content. They're happy, at the decree of Allah subhanahu wa Tahara whatever Allah has decreed for me, I'm satisfied with it, I'm content.

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

But then there is a fourth level and a fourth category of people

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

who go above and beyond

00:14:37--> 00:14:41

and these are those closest to Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:14:42--> 00:14:50

They are those who are not only patient who are not only satisfied and content with the decree of Allah.

00:14:51--> 00:14:52

But then on top of that

00:14:55--> 00:14:58

they are grateful to Allah subhana wa Tada

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

grateful for what

00:15:02--> 00:15:07

they are grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for sending them this test in this trial.

00:15:08--> 00:15:33

Not only are they happy, not only are they satisfied, but they actually thank Allah that all I thank you for meeting me to go through this. Why? Because peace tests and these trials, it opens the eyes of the true servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:34--> 00:15:42

it opens their eyes. For some of them, it makes them to return back to Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:15:43--> 00:16:05

For others, it makes them to realize that they were living a life of a blessing. And once it was taken away, they are grateful to Allah for showing them that this was a blessing from you, Oh Allah, and now you have taken it away from me. If you had not taken it away from me, I would never have been able to thank you for it.

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

So my dear brothers and sisters

00:16:16--> 00:16:19

we have to remember, first and foremost

00:16:21--> 00:16:23

that everything is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:16:27--> 00:16:31

That if we have to spend another Ramadan like this,

00:16:33--> 00:16:38

then this was a decree of Allah subhana wa Tada that could never have been averted.

00:16:40--> 00:16:52

No matter what we did, no matter how capable we were, we would never be able to we would never have been able to avert what Allah subhanho wa Taala had planned.

00:16:54--> 00:16:57

Therefore, we have to stop complaining

00:16:58--> 00:17:07

and stop putting the blame on Allah subhana who was at it? Stop objecting to the decree of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:17:08--> 00:17:09

Let us

00:17:11--> 00:17:23

well, who knows Arun? Allah is never questioned, why does he do this? Why does he do that? But rather it is a we who will be questioned about what we do.

00:17:25--> 00:17:28

What I said an Takahashi and we're hiring.

00:17:29--> 00:17:33

Perhaps we may see something as being evil as being negative.

00:17:36--> 00:17:42

But it is better for us. So we have to realize that the decree of Allah

00:17:43--> 00:17:47

it is for our own good. Secondly,

00:17:49--> 00:17:53

we have to reflect over why this has happened.

00:17:54--> 00:17:56

And so there is no doubt

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

there is no doubt

00:18:00--> 00:18:02

that blessings

00:18:03--> 00:18:10

are stripped away from us. Because we have become distinct from Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:18:12--> 00:18:15

It's because of our own demons. It's because of our sin.

00:18:17--> 00:18:25

We need to reflect deeply over this. Because once we reflect over this, we'll know how to get ourselves out of this situation.

00:18:28--> 00:18:39

And that is by turning back to Allah subhanahu wa taala there's no doubt that the only way for adversities and calamities to be lifted

00:18:40--> 00:18:49

is by turning back to Allah subhanahu wa Tada sincerely repenting to Allah from our sinful lives

00:18:50--> 00:18:56

and getting back into good terms with Allah subhanho wa taala. Thirdly

00:19:01--> 00:19:01

thirdly

00:19:06--> 00:19:08

we also need to realize,

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

we also need to realize

00:19:15--> 00:19:31

that most of us will only truly value a blessing from Allah. Once it is taken away from us. And this is the reality of most of us. It's only a handful of the servants of Allah

00:19:35--> 00:19:42

who sank Allah subhanahu wa Tada in both good times and difficult times.

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

It is only the true servants of Allah

00:19:49--> 00:19:55

who realize the value of the blessings of Allah not just when they're taken away,

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

but also when we're enjoying them.

00:20:01--> 00:20:05

And we're living in prosperous times.

00:20:06--> 00:20:08

But for the vast majority of us,

00:20:09--> 00:20:17

we only truly value the blessing once it's taken away from us, and we see that in this month of Ramadan

00:20:18--> 00:20:22

this is one of the things that fasting it teaches us

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

when

00:20:26--> 00:20:29

when we're stripped of our food and drink

00:20:32--> 00:20:33

and we have to fast

00:20:35--> 00:20:53

this reminds us that there are those who don't have anything to eat or drink, not only in Ramadan, but throughout the year. This is one of the things that fasting teaches us to value, the blessings of Allah subhana who, what?

00:20:54--> 00:20:56

And likewise, there's

00:20:57--> 00:20:59

no Ramadan together.

00:21:00--> 00:21:04

No communal is Thor's no totally.

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

No ethic as a perhaps,

00:21:09--> 00:21:10

no eat together.

00:21:13--> 00:21:17

These are blessings of Allah, that today

00:21:18--> 00:21:23

we are valuing why? Because now they have been taken away from us.

00:21:25--> 00:21:29

Now let us remember that there are those

00:21:30--> 00:21:32

of our brothers and sisters

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

who have had these blessings stripped away from them, not just in the month of Ramadan, but throughout the year. And not just a second Ramadan before but perhaps

00:21:48--> 00:21:57

for years on end, those of our brothers and sisters who have been imprisoned unjustly throughout the world,

00:21:59--> 00:22:14

and those of our brothers and sisters, who perhaps are isolated in hospitals, not able to be together with their loved ones, or participate in the misogyny in the Salawat.

00:22:15--> 00:22:19

And in all of these communal gatherings

00:22:21--> 00:22:25

we should remember them and be grateful to Allah subhanahu wa jahana

00:22:26--> 00:22:30

for the blessings of Allah subhanahu wa. Finally,

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

finally, as we sit at home,

00:22:38--> 00:22:40

unable to come

00:22:41--> 00:22:43

to the houses of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:22:45--> 00:22:46

Let us remember

00:22:49--> 00:22:52

that one of the best forms of a bad

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

is not

00:22:56--> 00:23:01

that he bad that you do in front of others, but rather,

00:23:02--> 00:23:16

the most beloved form of liberta in the sake of Allah is to do it away from the seat of people. And so today, me and you have that opportunity. Take advantage of it, because

00:23:17--> 00:23:21

it's not something that comes it's not something that comes all the time.

00:23:23--> 00:23:26

So take advantage of this time in solitude.

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

At home,

00:23:30--> 00:23:35
