00:03:51--> 00:03:57

back home, warming up a la hora Sula, who felt Cardiff as if it was in Lima.

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

My dear brothers and sisters

00:04:04--> 00:04:06

imagine there was a woman

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

who sat down

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

to spin her yarn.

00:04:13--> 00:04:16

And so she gets all of her yarn together her tools together

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

and then she starts spinning her yarn

00:04:22--> 00:04:27

putting effort into it putting time into it.

00:04:28--> 00:04:33

And then after her yarn has been spin spun, she looks at it

00:04:35--> 00:04:38

and she decides to unspin it.

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

So she spins it until

00:04:43--> 00:04:47

until it goes back to what it was returning back to zero.

00:04:50--> 00:04:52

So my dear brothers and sisters,

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

those of us

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

who put who put in time and effort

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

In the month of Ramadan

00:05:03--> 00:05:19

in the IBA of Allah, in doing good deeds, and then once Ramadan has come to an end, they return to their normal lives returning to a life of sin, they are no different to this woman.

00:05:21--> 00:05:22

They are no different.

00:05:24--> 00:05:25

And so such people

00:05:26--> 00:05:36

they only knew Allah subhanho wa Taala they only recognize Allah subhanho wa Taala in the month of Ramadan, such people

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

they worshipped Ramadan, not the Lord of Ramadan.

00:05:43--> 00:05:46

And so whoever worshipped Ramadan, the Ramadan has gone.

00:05:48--> 00:06:02

But whoever worshipped ALLAH SubhanA who went to Hana, then Allah is a heavy, he is the Ever Living and he never die us. And so my dear brothers and sisters, it was said to

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

be sure and happy Rahima hula, he said that there are people

00:06:09--> 00:06:33

who put a lot of time and effort into worshipping Allah, and to doing good deeds in the month of Ramadan. And then once Ramadan is over, they stopped doing the good that they had started. And so he said, he said that such people are a miserable people. He said,

00:06:34--> 00:06:42

the miserable ones are those who only know Allah subhanho wa Taala in the month of Ramadan.

00:06:43--> 00:06:45

And so whoever tastes

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

the sweetness of a bad

00:06:49--> 00:06:55

whoever truly tastes, the sweetness of worshiping Allah

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

and doing good deeds.

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

That sweetness and that serenity that he feels.

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

He never wants to give it up.

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

And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us well, me Yeah,

00:07:11--> 00:07:17

well, me Yeah, men. Woman, I'm 11 Camila Solly. Han, means that Karen

00:07:18--> 00:07:19

well who am I,

00:07:20--> 00:07:24

that whoever does good deeds, whether he be male or female,

00:07:25--> 00:07:30

as long as he is a believer, fairly, you know who hired them per year

00:07:31--> 00:07:37

that we will make him to live a good, pleasurable life life.

00:07:39--> 00:07:46

And so a good enjoyable pleasurable life is through the aid of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:07:48--> 00:07:56

It is through recognizing Allah subhanho wa Taala throughout our lives, not once in a year.

00:07:58--> 00:08:11

It is by not only recognizing Allah subhanahu wa Tada but also doing that which pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala throughout our lives, and so a good pleasurable life

00:08:13--> 00:08:37

is not found through material gains through wealth. It is not found by living a long life, if it is void of the worship of Allah subhanho wa taala. But rather, a pleasurable, serene and peaceful life is only found in that connection that we make with Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:08:38--> 00:08:48

And making sure that it is continuous until the day that we meet him subhanho wa taala. And so we have to remember

00:08:51--> 00:08:55

that we don't have, we don't have to.

00:08:57--> 00:09:03

We don't have to be worshipping Allah subhana who had to hide at the same level that we were in the month of Ramadan.

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

Ramadan was a virtuous time,

00:09:07--> 00:09:14

it was a special time for a bad no doubt, for extra data for extra good deeds, no doubt.

00:09:16--> 00:09:21

And no one is saying that we have to return to that same state as we were in the month of Ramadan.

00:09:26--> 00:09:29

But what we should focus on is the bare minimum.

00:09:31--> 00:09:34

And so the bare minimum is making sure

00:09:36--> 00:09:41

making sure that we are at least fulfilling the obligations.

00:09:44--> 00:09:45

The obligations, the basics,

00:09:47--> 00:09:48

making sure

00:09:49--> 00:09:55

that we are fulfilling the bare minimum. The formula is our daily Salawat

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

the Sunon

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

that are more emphasized, the sooner in Canada, whether it be related to Salah or any other good deed.

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

And that includes fasting,

00:10:13--> 00:10:21

not just fasting Ramadan, but fasting after Ramadan. And so my dear brothers and sisters, remember

00:10:23--> 00:10:24

remember

00:10:25--> 00:10:28

that good that is continuous

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

is far better,

00:10:31--> 00:10:52

that good, even if it is small that is continuous is far better than good that we do that we consider as being big, but then we discontinue it for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a Hubble an early Ilahi I the one who were in

00:10:53--> 00:11:06

that the most beloved of deeds in the sight of Allah subhanahu Uttara are those that are continuous, even if they be small. And so

00:11:08--> 00:11:13

there were various good deeds and acts of ADA that we started in the month of Ramadan.

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

We can continue them after Ramadan

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

without

00:11:20--> 00:11:21

without

00:11:22--> 00:11:25

them having to be at the same level.

00:11:26--> 00:11:36

As we were doing in the month of Ramadan, no one is saying to pray, eat raka ha heart every single night or too fast every single day

00:11:37--> 00:11:41

or to recite a juice every single day.

00:11:42--> 00:11:46

If we cannot do that, if that is too much for us,

00:11:47--> 00:11:53

then we can do what is far less than that, even if it be very small,

00:11:54--> 00:11:59

as long as it is something continuous. And so

00:12:00--> 00:12:01

let us make the habit

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

of fasting.

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

We can choose two days of the week, Monday and Thursday. If that is too much, then three days of the month as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised

00:12:16--> 00:12:23

if that is too much, then at least fast the Day of Arafah the day of Ashura.

00:12:26--> 00:12:36

Praying at night, if we cannot get up in the last part of the night, then at least pray a few raka hat before going to sleep.

00:12:37--> 00:12:41

Even if it be two or four raka hat, ending it off with Witter

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

reciting the Quran if we cannot

00:12:46--> 00:13:01

recite an entire juice or even half of a juice every day, then at least a page or two pages, as long as it is daily, as long as it is continuous. This is more beloved to a worst of heart and

00:13:02--> 00:13:05

then then

00:13:06--> 00:13:07

to read a truth

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

and then

00:13:11--> 00:13:15

finding it too difficult to continue and then abandoning it, abandoning it

00:13:17--> 00:13:24

too difficult. And then not going back to the Quran. Except after the next Ramadan comes.

00:13:26--> 00:13:37

And likewise, our sada caught many of us we gave Allah in the month of Ramadan, no one is seeing that we have to give the same amount

00:13:38--> 00:13:40

every single day after the month of Ramadan.

00:13:42--> 00:13:44

But what stops us from giving

00:13:46--> 00:13:48

a few dollars a day

00:13:49--> 00:13:59

even if it'd be $1 as long as it is daily or continuous once a week for example, that is more beloved to Allah subhanahu Attallah

00:14:00--> 00:14:08

then giving $100 $1,000 and then not giving again except after next Ramadan comes.

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

And so my dear brothers and sisters

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

let us continue the good that we had started.

00:14:17--> 00:14:26

Let us continue the good that we had started in the month of Ramadan. No matter how small it may be. BarakAllahu li Walakum fille Quran Allah when

And my bad fit taco la isla de la. What are the movies? Certainly when Najwa Yeah, you had a lady in a taco Lucha cool aku Maha Saudi clean. And my bad my dear brothers and sisters

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

who ever truly benefited from the month of Ramadan.

00:15:50--> 00:15:53

His state after the month of Ramadan

00:15:55--> 00:15:59

is bound to be better than it was before Ramadan.

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

And so those

00:16:04--> 00:16:07

whose deeds were accepted in the month of Ramadan,

00:16:08--> 00:16:09

they are those

00:16:11--> 00:16:12

who changed

00:16:14--> 00:16:17

their lives after the month of Ramadan.

00:16:19--> 00:16:24

And this is because the sign of good deeds being accepted

00:16:26--> 00:16:29

is that we do other good deeds after them.

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

In a sign that deeds have not been accepted

00:16:36--> 00:16:43

is going back to sin. Going back to the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:16:44--> 00:16:48

And that's why a sign that one's Hajj has been accepted

00:16:49--> 00:17:06

is that he changes his life. After he returns home. He's no longer the same person that he was before. And a sign that his head was not accepted is that he returns to the way he was before.

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

And so

00:17:11--> 00:17:12

this is why

00:17:13--> 00:17:24

we need to make an effort to continue good deeds after the month of Ramadan, not to discontinue the good that we had started in the month of Ramadan.

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

And here after the month of Ramadan,

00:17:29--> 00:17:37

we have a golden opportunity to continue the good and that is by fasting six days of Shaohua

00:17:39--> 00:17:46

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said masama Ramadan, some Tibet I who sit in miniature world

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

Gannicus we are

00:17:51--> 00:17:54

the Whoever fasts the month of Ramadan

00:17:55--> 00:18:04

and then follows it up by fasting six days of the month of Chawan then it is as if he has fasted

00:18:06--> 00:18:10

a very long time it is as if he has fasted the entire year.

00:18:12--> 00:18:13

And this is because

00:18:15--> 00:18:21

generally good deeds are multiplied by 10 as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us

00:18:23--> 00:18:25

and so if you fasted the month of Ramadan,

00:18:27--> 00:18:30

one month is like fasting 10 months.

00:18:32--> 00:18:35

And then if you fast six days after that,

00:18:37--> 00:18:55

multiple multiplied by 10 you have 3060 days. So you have two months in addition to the 10 months and so that is one entire year and the bounty of Allah subhanahu wa Tada and the reward of Allah subhanho wa Taala has no limit.

00:18:57--> 00:19:24

And so, we should make an effort to fast the six days and one of the wisdoms of why it is legislated why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us to fast these days is because we are coming out of the month of Ramadan already prepared already having that momentum already being mentally and physically prepared to fast more.

00:19:27--> 00:19:28

And so,

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

if we are to fast in these days,

00:19:33--> 00:19:39

it is far more likely that we will be able to do so than any other time of the year.

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

And so it is better

00:19:43--> 00:19:47

that we fast the six days immediately after the month of Ramadan.

00:19:48--> 00:19:50

But for those of us who cannot

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

then we can distribute it throughout the month fasting, those days that it is encouraged to fast on

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

I like Mondays and Thursdays or the three middle days of the month, the 13th, the 14th and the 15th.

00:20:09--> 00:20:12

And also, let us not forget

00:20:13--> 00:20:24

let us not forget that those of us who have outstanding fasts from the month of Ramadan that we missed for legitimate reasons, and we have to make them up

00:20:25--> 00:20:43

let us not delay let us not delay making those up. Because, as I said, we are now mentally and physically ready to continue fasting. So, let us not put it off for a time that it will become difficult for us. And then before we know it,

00:20:44--> 00:20:53

the next month of Ramadan is here. And if we don't make it up before then then we are sinful. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:20:55--> 00:21:10

to accept our good deeds in the month of Ramadan, we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make us from among those who continue the good until the day we meet him. We ask Allah subhanahu wa Tada

00:21:11--> 00:21:52

to help us to help us to continue doing good deeds until the day we meet him subhanho wa Taala they also do a Salim Rahim aka Mala I learned that you can Mohammed bin Abdullah come at a Moroccan daddy karoq Boukenger la Viola for Cara to Allah COVID and Karima in Allahu la mala Iike who you saw Luna Allah Nabi you hold Edina and also Lou Halle he was a Limitus Lima Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Nabina Muhammad Ali Baba whom the handful of you will be back in what room or what was the man are highly one sir it is a habit the LGMA in one Bureau Hermetica whakaaro mica yeah economic economy
