00:01:28--> 00:01:29

my dear brothers and sisters.

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

Another Ramadan has come.

00:01:35--> 00:01:38

And another Ramadan is ready to depart.

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

Another opportunity came in our lives.

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

And another opportunity

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

is ready to leave our hands.

00:01:54--> 00:02:04

And so we need to ask ourselves where we stand? And did we take advantage of that opportunity when it came? Where did we let it to go to waste.

00:02:05--> 00:02:10

And so my dear brothers and sisters that Reba of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

It's not something easy.

00:02:17--> 00:02:21

It requires a strong resolve a strong determination.

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

It requires effort.

00:02:28--> 00:02:33

It requires sacrifice. It requires dedication.

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

And that's why

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

the reward for it is great.

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

And so as Ramadan

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

comes winding down to an end,

00:02:55--> 00:02:57

there are those among us

00:02:58--> 00:03:06

who took advantage of its nights. And its days in the event of a loss of Hannah who would die.

00:03:09--> 00:03:12

So we should not wait for our reward.

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

In this life,

00:03:18--> 00:03:21

we shouldn't wait for our reward from anyone

00:03:22--> 00:03:24

other than Allah Subhana who would data

00:03:26--> 00:03:27

because

00:03:28--> 00:03:33

there is no reward greater than that which is with a loss of hair and who want to add

00:03:34--> 00:03:38

one to cut the movie and through SQL mean hiring do

00:03:40--> 00:03:41

whatever you have put forward

00:03:43--> 00:03:47

of good no matter what it is, no matter how small or great it is.

00:03:49--> 00:03:54

You will find it where you will find it with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

And so now is not the time to be slacking off.

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

Now is not the time to be slowing down.

00:04:05--> 00:04:07

Now is not the time to be resting.

00:04:08--> 00:04:11

But rather just like

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

we should not be slacking off. Just like

00:04:17--> 00:04:24

we should not be slowing down in our lives until our last breath.

00:04:25--> 00:04:29

Likewise, we should not be slowing down

00:04:30--> 00:04:44

as we are coming to the end of Ramadan. But rather we need to take advantage of each and every single day and each and every single night and each and every single hour of what remains.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

What I would drop back to kuryakyn Allah subhanho wa Taala how to commend His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, worship your Lord until when until you attain your key

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

Meaning until death.

00:05:04--> 00:05:07

And so my dear brothers and sisters, there are those among us

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

who worked hard in this month

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

until now is not the time to be slacking off or slowing down.

00:05:19--> 00:05:23

But rather working even harder in what remains.

00:05:24--> 00:05:26

On the other hand,

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

if you found yourself to be among those

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

who wasted

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

what has gone by in this month of Ramadan

00:05:39--> 00:05:40

in sleep

00:05:42--> 00:05:43

in enjoying yourself

00:05:44--> 00:05:52

in chasing after your desires your wings in not respecting the sacredness of this month of Ramadan

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

then beware

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

beware

00:05:59--> 00:06:03

for the Prophet salallahu it he was telling him once he got up on the member

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

and he said mean three times.

00:06:09--> 00:06:10

So the companions they asked them

00:06:12--> 00:06:14

why have you said amin thrice?

00:06:16--> 00:06:21

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said attorney dubrow eden for Allah.

00:06:22--> 00:06:23

Yeah, Mohammed

00:06:25--> 00:06:27

gibreel alayhis salam came to me.

00:06:29--> 00:06:31

And so he said, Oh, Mohammed,

00:06:34--> 00:06:35

whoever

00:06:37--> 00:06:40

is alive and their parents are alive or one of them.

00:06:42--> 00:06:45

And they don't enter agenda as a result.

00:06:46--> 00:06:51

Then they are humiliated they are disgraced. See, I mean, so I said I mean,

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

then he said

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

whoever

00:07:01--> 00:07:03

whoever wrote Lima and

00:07:05--> 00:07:09

Ravi informally in Urdu, Raka, Ramadan

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

Phelim, you without

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

humiliated be the one

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

who Ramadan came.

00:07:21--> 00:07:26

And it went without him being forgiven his sins.

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

So gibreel said, See, I mean,

00:07:32--> 00:07:33

so I said, I mean,

00:07:36--> 00:07:37

my dear brothers and sisters,

00:07:38--> 00:07:40

Who among us

00:07:42--> 00:07:44

is not drowning in sin.

00:07:45--> 00:07:47

Who among us

00:07:49--> 00:07:53

has not been tired Oh, with the sins

00:07:54--> 00:07:57

that are a burden on our shoulders?

00:08:00--> 00:08:03

Do we not need the forgiveness of Allah subhana wa, Tada.

00:08:05--> 00:08:10

times like this don't come every day. Only once in a year.

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

Don't waste it. Don't let this opportunity to go.

00:08:19--> 00:08:26

And so it's not too late. Even though we are in the last stretch of the month of Ramadan.

00:08:28--> 00:08:32

And so it's not too late. You still have time.

00:08:33--> 00:08:36

You still have time in what remains.

00:08:38--> 00:08:39

But it's not.

00:08:41--> 00:08:42

It's not about

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

it's not about what remains, but it's about what you care about.

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

There are some among us

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

who all they care about

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

is this life of the dunya.

00:09:02--> 00:09:05

enjoying it, living it to pass

00:09:06--> 00:09:07

in sleep in enjoyment.

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

They don't care about what comes

00:09:16--> 00:09:18

after this short life of yours.

00:09:21--> 00:09:22

But there are those

00:09:23--> 00:09:29

who they care because they value and they know the true value

00:09:30--> 00:09:42

of the life to come as compared to this present life. And so that is why they dedicate their lives. And that is why they sacrifice these few moments

00:09:43--> 00:09:49

in this life, because they knew they know the value of sacrificing

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

these few moments

00:09:53--> 00:09:55

later to look harder

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

is a night as Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that

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

is better, more virtuous, more rewarding

00:10:04--> 00:10:06

than 1000 months.

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

Think about

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

more than 80 years of data

00:10:16--> 00:10:18

if you stood up one night.

00:10:20--> 00:10:25

And so there's no doubt that the one who is truly deprived

00:10:26--> 00:10:29

is not the one who has been deprived

00:10:30--> 00:10:35

of something of the dunya of a certain fortune of a certain

00:10:37--> 00:10:39

amount of money of a certain

00:10:42--> 00:10:54

material gain in the dunya. But rather, the one who has truly been deprived is the one who could not exchange a few hours

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

for a lifetime of data.

00:11:00--> 00:11:01

And so there are those among us.

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

Who would prefer sleeping in these nights,

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

giving their body that pleasure of sleep,

00:11:12--> 00:11:19

rather than exchanging them for seeing up in the event of a loss of Hannah with data,

00:11:20--> 00:11:28

in exchange for the reward of a loss of Hannah, who, what data. Finally, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

remember that what matters

00:11:34--> 00:11:36

is not our hard work.

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

And our a bad day.

00:11:42--> 00:11:45

What matters is not how much effort we put into it.

00:11:49--> 00:11:53

But rather what matters above everything else,

00:11:55--> 00:12:00

is whether our EDA and our hard work has been accepted or not.

00:12:02--> 00:12:05

And so my dear brothers and sisters, they said

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

they wouldn't care about the actual data, and the actual good deeds that they would do.

00:12:16--> 00:12:17

Contrary to many of us,

00:12:19--> 00:12:27

who we care about the actual good deed, and then once we've done it, we relax.

00:12:28--> 00:12:33

And we think good of ourselves that have done such a huge good deed,

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

not realizing

00:12:38--> 00:12:40

whether it has been accepted or not.

00:12:41--> 00:12:45

And so it'd be Roger beer, he mentions that some of the seller

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

on the day of the eagle fiddle

00:12:51--> 00:12:54

while everyone else is happy and enjoying themselves,

00:12:55--> 00:12:58

they would appear depressed and distress.

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

It's all they were asked, today is a day of joy, it is a day of happiness, what is wrong with you?

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

And so they would say,

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

Yes, that's true.

00:13:14--> 00:13:16

Today is a day to enjoy.

00:13:17--> 00:13:18

But

00:13:20--> 00:13:26

I am in I am a servant, who has been commanded by his Lord,

00:13:27--> 00:13:28

to do something,

00:13:29--> 00:13:33

to do certain acts to do certain good deeds.

00:13:36--> 00:13:37

And I don't know.

00:13:39--> 00:13:41

Was it accepted for me or not?

00:13:45--> 00:13:46

And so it's no different

00:13:48--> 00:13:59

than some of us who go to school. And we put in so much effort into passing our courses and passing our exams.

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

And once we have given our exams and the semester comes to an end, we are not satisfied and we will not be at peace until until the final greens have been announced.

00:14:17--> 00:14:23

So this is how the true servant of Allah subhanho wa Tada. He lives in this life.

00:14:24--> 00:14:51

He should never be content and satisfied over what he has done until the grades have come in. And the report cards have been given out and that won't be in this life. But rather that will be on the day in which the books will be distributed. We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to make us from among those whose deeds have been accepted

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

barakallahu Li walakum, Felker and Avi. Whenever anyone can be Matthew human, it will declare Hakeem akuto Matisse Maru was

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

00:16:18--> 00:16:26

as we wind our way down to the last days of Ramadan, and it's last night and it's last hours.

00:16:28--> 00:16:30

We are reminded of the fact

00:16:32--> 00:16:35

that we will be enjoying our aid

00:16:37--> 00:16:43

in the comfort of our families. And while we have nice clothes to wear,

00:16:45--> 00:16:48

and we have food to eat,

00:16:49--> 00:16:56

there are those from among our brothers and sisters who don't have that fortune.

00:16:59--> 00:17:05

And so this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala legislated at the end of this month

00:17:06--> 00:17:11

to give the cattle fitter, along with the fact that it is a purification.

00:17:13--> 00:17:15

It purifies our shortcomings

00:17:16--> 00:17:19

that were made in this month of Ramadan.

00:17:20--> 00:17:25

On top of that, it is to bring joy to those less fortunate.

00:17:27--> 00:17:32

And so there are certain rulings that we must be aware of regarding as a cattle fitter.

00:17:34--> 00:17:38

And so, first and foremost, the cattle fitter

00:17:40--> 00:17:51

is mandatory. It is obligatory, it is not something optional. It is obligatory upon each and every single member of the household.

00:17:53--> 00:17:59

Not just the adults, not just those who have attained puberty, but also the children.

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

Every single household, every single member of the household, some scholars, they even see the fetus that even hasn't come out of the womb of its mother.

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

And so every single member of the household

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

is a cattle fitter is obligatory upon.

00:18:19--> 00:18:23

Secondly, the one who has to give it is the Wali

00:18:25--> 00:18:42

and the guardian of the household, the Father, the husband, even for his wife, even if she may be rich, it is not her responsibility, but rather the responsibility of the husband. Thirdly, the cattle fitter must be given

00:18:44--> 00:18:45

as staple food

00:18:47--> 00:18:51

whether it be rice flour, whatever it be.

00:18:53--> 00:18:59

It must be given as food to the poor and the needy, and not as cash

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

and not as cash. Fourthly,

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

you are allowed to delegate someone

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

by giving him money,

00:19:13--> 00:19:20

asking him to buy that food on your behalf and distribute it to those in need.

00:19:22--> 00:19:29

Which is something that we do here in this part of the world by sending our money abroad overseas.

00:19:31--> 00:19:36

And so what we are sending is not cash that will be handed

00:19:37--> 00:19:39

over to the poor and the needy but rather

00:19:41--> 00:19:52

food that will be given to them. And so there's nothing wrong with doing this. As long as we make sure that what is being given is food and not cash.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

Also, we can give the cattle fitter locally if we if we want to

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

For we can send it abroad wherever the need is more pressing, that is where we should give it

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

And finally,

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

the cattle feeder must be given

00:20:13--> 00:20:17

must be given before so not too late.

00:20:18--> 00:20:19

And so, this is why

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

we ask you

00:20:22--> 00:20:40

to give your money for as a cattle fitter, if you want it to be sent abroad by Mr. Abu huraira. For we are collecting, we are collecting you can make your payment online and we are collecting until tomorrow

00:20:41--> 00:21:01

in order to make sure that the cattle filter is given on time, we have made the deadline for tomorrow. So, make sure that if you have not given until now make sure that you do so, by tomorrow. Finally, a reminder to our brothers and sisters

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

who are tuning in online

00:21:05--> 00:21:08

that tomorrow, tomorrow night.

00:21:09--> 00:21:11

Saturday night is the 27th

00:21:12--> 00:21:14

night of Ramadan.

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

And although we do not know which night later to cuddle

00:21:20--> 00:21:34

is precisely the scholars say that it is most likely and anticipated to be on the 27th if we were to compare all the nights, this is the one that it is more likely to be on.

00:21:35--> 00:21:51

And so Mr. W Herrera plans on having an evening in which we will be completing the recitation of the Quran insalata Torah which that will be followed with the Dr. of Hutton.

00:21:52--> 00:21:56

Alongside that we have a list of Messiah's and

00:21:58--> 00:22:03

who will be joining us who will be joining us online from around the world

00:22:04--> 00:22:15

to give us beneficial reminders on the special night. And so we ask all of you to tune in in sha Allah to Allah from 930 tomorrow night, Saturday night,
