my dear brothers and sisters.

00:01:41--> 00:01:45

Last night, was a very very special night.

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

an A in which a guest arrived.

00:01:52--> 00:01:55

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:01:56--> 00:02:02

in either Cana a Willa Leela minchah hari Rama bon

Sufi that Shailene walmartone Raja telegin

00:02:12--> 00:02:15

on the very first night of Ramadan

00:02:18--> 00:02:21

which is the night that precedes the day of Ramadan

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

on this night

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

the SRA team

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

and the evil of the gin

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

there are locked up tied up

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

well Julio got a ba ba na.

00:02:43--> 00:02:46

fella used to mean her dad.

00:02:47--> 00:02:56

And on this night, the gates of hell fire are all locked and not a single gate is left open.

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

What would the heart agenda

00:03:02--> 00:03:05

Phelim used to mean her dad

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

and all of the gates of Jenna are opened and not a single one of them.

00:03:15--> 00:03:20

filum Yoga lachemann her dad and not a single one of them is shut

00:03:23--> 00:03:25

while you inadi Muna Dean

00:03:27--> 00:03:29

and a caller calls out

00:03:30--> 00:03:33

Yeah, the real deal.

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

Oh, do we have good

00:03:38--> 00:03:39

Now is your time.

00:03:41--> 00:03:58

Get ready. Now is your time. Come close? Why? reassure? relaxor and oduor of evil. Now is the time to stop your evil. Now is the time to stop.

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

Well Illa Hirotaka manana Radha Lika Lila Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam concluded by saying

00:04:11--> 00:04:14

that Allah subhanho wa Taala has those

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

who he frees

00:04:18--> 00:04:24

from the Hellfire and that is in every single night of Ramadan.

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:04:29--> 00:04:31

now is the time

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

now is the time

00:04:37--> 00:04:38

to start working.

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

Now is the time to get active.

00:04:45--> 00:04:54

Now is not the time to be sleeping. Now is not the time to become lazy, as unfortunately many Muslims we find them

00:04:55--> 00:04:58

on the first day of Ramadan and the first few days

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

With the excuse of fasting, they say we're too weak. They say we can't do it.

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

And so they sleep the entire day.

00:05:11--> 00:05:18

And they become lazy on this first day of Ramadan. And so those who are truly deprived

00:05:19--> 00:05:24

of the, of the grace the bounty and the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:25--> 00:05:29

are those who when times like Ramadan come,

00:05:32--> 00:05:34

they come and they go

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

without these people

00:05:38--> 00:05:42

having received any portion of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:43--> 00:05:47

having received many of the forgiveness of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:05:49--> 00:05:51

And so what this shows

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

is that such people

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

they can't make the excuse

00:06:01--> 00:06:03

that I can't do it because

00:06:05--> 00:06:09

the devils in the shower clean or too strong over me.

00:06:10--> 00:06:13

What this shows is

00:06:14--> 00:06:15

that these people,

00:06:16--> 00:06:19

it is themselves who are to blame.

00:06:21--> 00:06:30

And so they can't put the blame on anyone else, not even on the shame of being why, because the shame of being are locked up.

00:06:31--> 00:06:34

So what excuse do you have now?

00:06:35--> 00:06:39

And that's why as Allah Subhana who tells us that on the Day of Judgment,

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

the devils will come

00:06:45--> 00:06:52

our way of being who are with us in this dunya who will taze us to do evil. On that day, they will come

00:06:55--> 00:06:59

and they will disassociate themselves from us and from our evil.

00:07:01--> 00:07:05

Work on Akari. Nura bana nottoway

00:07:08--> 00:07:09

his partner,

00:07:10--> 00:07:13

meaning the devil that was with him in this dunya

00:07:15--> 00:07:23

on that day, he will say, Our Lord, it was not me, who caused him to go astray while our kin who

00:07:24--> 00:07:31

was in Canada have you go out in buried but rather he was for a straight himself.

00:07:34--> 00:07:35

And so

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

the keys to Jenna

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

and the keys to the Hellfire

00:07:44--> 00:07:46

are only in our hands

00:07:50--> 00:07:59

and that's why throughout the Quran, Allah subhana wa tada tells us that those who enter Jenna It is because of what they did.

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

We met can we I'm alone, and those who enter the Hellfire be mad at him. It was because of what they themselves sent forth.

00:08:13--> 00:08:15

Whatever we see

00:08:16--> 00:08:20

in the era, when we meet Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:08:22--> 00:08:28

It is because of what we ourselves did or did not do.

00:08:31--> 00:08:34

And so now is the time

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

to get up.

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

Now is the time

00:08:43--> 00:08:44

to work hard

00:08:46--> 00:08:52

to put our laziness behind to put our excuses behind

00:08:55--> 00:09:12

and to race in these days, which are days of competition. What sir you irana Virata Mira become and compete race with one another to the forgiveness of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

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

These days My dear brothers and sisters

00:09:18--> 00:09:24

are days in which the shape of lean are chained, they're locked up.

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

And so if they are chained, if they are locked up,

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

then what we have to do

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

is that we have to unfasten.

00:09:39--> 00:09:40

We have to

00:09:41--> 00:09:48

release ourselves from the shackles of our shadow act

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

and from our evil knifes because if we persist in evil in this month, then it's not because of the shayateen because they're they're Shut up.

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

They're chained up and locked up and shackled.

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

But it is because of our evil inclining knifes.

00:10:12--> 00:10:21

enough's amount of the soup. The knifes there is inclined to do evil that doesn't want to do good.

00:10:22--> 00:10:34

It is this knifes that we need to release from the shackles of its Jehovah its desires and we need to bring it under control.

00:10:35--> 00:10:42

We need to bring this knifes under our control and not allow it to control us.

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

My dear brothers and sisters

00:10:50--> 00:10:53

now that the shayateen are locked up,

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

what we need to do

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

is we need to permanently

00:11:06--> 00:11:07

unfasten

00:11:10--> 00:11:15

those chains and those shackles from the grip of shaitan

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

ponder over this Hadeeth

00:11:22--> 00:11:26

in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:11:29--> 00:11:31

describes to us

00:11:32--> 00:11:33

a scene

00:11:36--> 00:11:37

of someone

00:11:41--> 00:11:44

who basically has lost all hope.

00:11:47--> 00:11:49

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:11:52--> 00:11:54

lilla he assured do Pharaoh Han

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

be told that he up the hill moanin

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:06--> 00:12:08

becomes more joyful

00:12:09--> 00:12:10

and happy

00:12:13--> 00:12:14

at the repentance

00:12:16--> 00:12:18

of his believing slave,

00:12:20--> 00:12:24

more happy and more joyful. Then

00:12:25--> 00:12:29

this individual and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes him

00:12:32--> 00:12:35

mineral juhlin v erbin that we attend Melaka tin

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:13:11--> 00:13:20

that Allah is more joyful, more happy when one of us turns to him in repentance, then a man

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

a man

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

who is out in the desert.

00:13:30--> 00:13:31

And he's traveling.

00:13:34--> 00:13:37

And he has gone days and nights out in the desert.

00:13:42--> 00:13:45

And he comes to a place where he decides to rest

00:13:48--> 00:13:52

with his camel that has everything on it.

00:13:55--> 00:14:00

His food, his drink, all of His provision is there on his camera.

00:14:03--> 00:14:10

And so he goes to sleep. And when he wakes up, he finds that his camel

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

has gone.

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

It has left him

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

with all of His provision.

00:14:20--> 00:14:27

All of his means for survival. There's no water around, there's no food around.

00:14:28--> 00:14:31

He knows that that's it, it's over.

00:14:34--> 00:14:38

I have no means of survival. And so he says,

00:14:39--> 00:14:46

After losing all hope. He says let me go back to that place where I was resting.

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

And let me just wait there

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

until

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

I have died.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:15:02--> 00:15:13

For those who add Lia moot, first a cada winder hora de la to La quwata Hama who was

00:15:14--> 00:15:18

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, so he goes back to that place

00:15:19--> 00:15:23

why lies down, puts his hand beneath his head.

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

And then all of a sudden, from nowhere

00:15:29--> 00:15:31

his camel comes back

00:15:33--> 00:15:34

and he sees it in front of him.

00:15:36--> 00:15:39

on it, his food his drink.

00:15:41--> 00:15:48

And in another narration of the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and so this man, out of extreme joy.

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

He says,

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

Yeah, Rob,

00:15:56--> 00:16:08

and to have the one hour book, that you are my servant, and I am your Lord. He says this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, that he says this only out of extreme joy. It's a slip of the tongue.

00:16:10--> 00:16:21

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, For law who else should do 401 b Toba till ABD l min min has b rohilla. t he was added.

00:16:24--> 00:16:26

Allah is more joyful, more happy

00:16:28--> 00:16:32

when one of us pursue him in repentance.

00:16:34--> 00:16:35

Then this man

00:16:38--> 00:16:45

who is joyful and happy after seeing his camel after having lost it.

00:16:48--> 00:16:54

What is the explanation of this hadith and the explanation of alarge joy?

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

What's the relation between the two?

00:17:01--> 00:17:05

If Nakayama Rahim Allah He sums up he sums it up very beautifully.

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

He says

00:17:10--> 00:17:11

that imagine

00:17:15--> 00:17:16

in a war

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

there's a warrior who's fighting

00:17:23--> 00:17:24

against the enemy.

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

But it so happens

00:17:29--> 00:17:31

that they are defeated in this war.

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

And so he's taken

00:17:35--> 00:17:36

as a prisoner of war.

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

And so he's taken,

00:17:41--> 00:17:43

shackled, chained up

00:17:46--> 00:17:51

and taken to a far off land of foreign land and thrown into prison.

00:17:52--> 00:17:56

He loses all hope of ever returning

00:17:58--> 00:18:01

to his family, to his land.

00:18:03--> 00:18:04

But one day,

00:18:06--> 00:18:09

he finds an opportunity to escape.

00:18:10--> 00:18:15

He unfasten his shackles and he manages to escape

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

from the grip of his enemy

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

and he runs and he runs

00:18:22--> 00:18:24

and he travels back to his land.

00:18:25--> 00:18:27

And he knocks on his door

00:18:28--> 00:18:35

after even his family had lost all hope of ever seeing him ever again.

00:18:38--> 00:18:41

And so they open up the door and they see him

00:18:43--> 00:18:51

and so imagine the joy that comes to them and to him at that time.

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

So he says that we are in the same state in this dunya

00:19:01--> 00:19:04

in this dunya we have come

00:19:05--> 00:19:08

after having been sent here

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

by Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:19:13--> 00:19:16

shackled by our enemies shaytaan

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

constantly

00:19:21--> 00:19:24

under the command and control of shaitan

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

we can't escape

00:19:29--> 00:19:30

but when we do

00:19:33--> 00:19:34

it is then

00:19:36--> 00:19:39

that we turn to Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:19:40--> 00:19:51

and so we unfastened those shackles, and we turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala running to him, fleeing to him. So Hannah who atella

00:19:52--> 00:19:57

so why wouldn't Allah Subhana who would be joyful at that?

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

Why would he allow some

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

Who attallah be short, joyful and happy

00:20:04--> 00:20:07

when one of us unfasten

00:20:08--> 00:20:11

the shackles of the enemy of Allah

00:20:12--> 00:20:15

and goes fleeing to Allah subhanahu wa tada

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

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:20:22--> 00:20:27

if you will Josie Rahim Allah He says in a very, very beautiful statement.

00:20:28--> 00:20:32

He says that 12 months of the year

00:20:34--> 00:20:46

are like the 12 sons of yakou Valley history. We all know that yakou Valley Salaam had 12 sons.

00:20:47--> 00:20:57

He goes on to say, and just like Yusuf Ali his Salaam, was the most beloved son to yaku Yaqoob likewise,

00:20:58--> 00:21:05

among the 12 months of the year, the most beloved to Allah Subhana who were to Hannah is the month of Ramadan.

00:21:07--> 00:21:09

And then he goes on to say

00:21:10--> 00:21:14

and just like Allah subhanho wa Taala forgave

00:21:16--> 00:21:30

the 11 sons, the 11 brothers of use of Allah His Salam because of the death of one of them, have you have use of Allah has said um, he says likewise,

00:21:31--> 00:21:48

Allah subhanahu wa tada will forgive you for the 11 months of the year that went by, in which you sinned and persisted in your sin. Why? Because of your law in the month of Ramadan.

00:21:50--> 00:21:54

And so my dear brothers and sisters, the month of Ramadan

00:21:55--> 00:22:47

is the month of turning to Allah subhanho wa Taala in sincere repentance, this is an opportunity that doesn't come every day. So take it now. Take it now because it's only a matter of days a year mm hmm do that. Today you Ramadan has entered and soon Ramadan will be departing without us. even realizing it. barakallahu li walakum filco Angela whim whenever anyone he can be Murphy he mean at what decreed Hakeem aku loco, he had our esto feudo la Halle welcome.

00:24:17--> 00:24:20

Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us

00:24:21--> 00:24:23

addressing the believers,

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

oh you who believe

00:24:27--> 00:24:31

prescribed for you has become fasting

00:24:32--> 00:24:36

just as it was prescribed for those before you.

00:24:37--> 00:24:38

For what purpose?

00:24:40--> 00:24:48

To achieve what objective lacunae acun so that perhaps

00:24:49--> 00:24:54

you may achieve the taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

My dear brothers and sisters

00:25:03--> 00:25:04

Ramadan

00:25:05--> 00:25:09

and the acts of the rebels in the month of Ramadan

00:25:11--> 00:25:12

are different

00:25:13--> 00:25:14

to the act of rebellion

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

outside the month of Ramadan

00:25:20--> 00:25:29

and so worshipping Ramadan is special and what makes it special including fasting is

00:25:30--> 00:25:32

that these are acts of a Buddha

00:25:34--> 00:25:38

that are directly related to our hearts

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

they are acts of a birder

00:25:43--> 00:25:44

which we can call

00:25:46--> 00:25:48

secluded acts of a bad

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

actor very bad

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

there are done in seclusion.

00:25:56--> 00:25:57

And so even if

00:25:58--> 00:26:03

you are not in seclusion at home, you are with everyone

00:26:05--> 00:26:08

outside going to work coming to the masjid

00:26:10--> 00:26:14

and we're worshiping a lot as a community still even then

00:26:16--> 00:26:17

our a bad

00:26:18--> 00:26:20

is a private matter

00:26:21--> 00:26:24

between ourselves and Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:26:26--> 00:26:28

And this becomes even more emphasized today

00:26:30--> 00:26:32

under the circumstances that we are in,

00:26:34--> 00:26:34

where

00:26:36--> 00:26:38

we no longer have the opportunity

00:26:39--> 00:26:41

to come together

00:26:42--> 00:26:44

in this month of Ramadan

00:26:46--> 00:26:49

and worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as a community

00:26:51--> 00:26:56

in the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the massage it

00:26:57--> 00:26:58

what is it

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

that makes fasting,

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

so different

00:27:06--> 00:27:08

than all the other activity better.

00:27:09--> 00:27:14

Some which are even greater than fasting, like, of Salah, praying,

00:27:15--> 00:27:19

which precedes fasting in virtue

00:27:21--> 00:27:22

and also in the Pillars of Islam.

00:27:24--> 00:27:26

But yet what makes fasting

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

so different?

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

Firstly,

00:27:33--> 00:27:37

all the other acts of Riba and good deeds.

00:27:41--> 00:27:46

For the most part, they are things that we are required to do.

00:27:47--> 00:27:56

We're required to see, our Salah consists of actions, movements, and statements.

00:27:58--> 00:28:25

On the other hand, fasting is different. We're not being asked to do something or to say something rather, we're being asked to refrain from certain things. And so what this teaches us is that the better of Allah, and the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala is not only in doing things, in seeing things, but also

00:28:27--> 00:28:37

by refraining from certain things. And so what fasting in the month of Ramadan, what it teaches us is how to refrain,

00:28:38--> 00:28:42

how to refrain from what Allah Subhana what Allah has forbidden.

00:28:45--> 00:28:47

And so as you're fasting today,

00:28:48--> 00:28:52

you're staying away from what Allah has made Hillel

00:28:54--> 00:29:22

in general, food, drink, relations that are permissible. These are things that Allah has made permissible for us. But we're being asked to refrain from these permissible things in these days. And so this will train us to stay away from and to refrain from that which Allah has made her on. So this is how we see

00:29:24--> 00:29:38

where Allah says, Allah, Allah kokoon, so that perhaps you will achieve taqwa. And so if you're wondering, what is the relationship between taqwa and fasting, then this is the relationship.

00:29:39--> 00:29:39

Secondly,

00:29:41--> 00:29:42

what makes fasting different

00:29:44--> 00:29:44

is

00:29:46--> 00:29:50

that fasting and the reward of fasting

00:29:51--> 00:29:52

is something

00:29:54--> 00:29:56

that is based upon what is in your heart.

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

Your Salah

00:30:02--> 00:30:06

will be accepted as long as you have the right intention.

00:30:08--> 00:30:19

But what's more important is the outward act. There are certain things that will invalidate your Salah, because you did not do or you did not say. On the other hand,

00:30:20--> 00:30:22

when it comes to fasting

00:30:24--> 00:30:25

outwardly,

00:30:28--> 00:30:31

everyone could be staying away from food and drink.

00:30:33--> 00:30:37

Outwardly people could seem as if they are fasting,

00:30:39--> 00:31:03

but Allah subhanahu wa tada will not judge us and will not reward us for our fast of Ramadan because of how we are outwardly staying away from food and drink, but rather, Allah will reward us for fasting in the month of Ramadan, for what is in our hearts.

00:31:04--> 00:31:12

For what is in our hearts. Firstly, the intention, why are we fasting? And secondly,

00:31:14--> 00:31:16

because the fasting person

00:31:19--> 00:31:20

what he leaves off

00:31:21--> 00:31:25

of permissible things, is purely

00:31:26--> 00:31:37

and sincerely for the sake of Allah alone. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says kulu Amelie Benny Adam, you don't have an Hashanah.

00:31:38--> 00:31:39

Allah has an A to

00:31:42--> 00:31:43

assure

00:31:45--> 00:31:48

and has an A to be actually I'm sorry.

00:31:50--> 00:31:52

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:31:53--> 00:31:56

that every deed of the son of Adam

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

is multiply

00:32:03--> 00:32:04

is multiplied

00:32:06--> 00:32:15

up to 700 times is multiplied between 10 and 700 times and then he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:32:16--> 00:32:17

illustrious

00:32:20--> 00:32:24

Illa song for in hooghly what n z

00:32:26--> 00:32:27

except for fasting.

00:32:29--> 00:32:33

Fasting was done sincerely for my sake.

00:32:34--> 00:32:40

And so I will reward him for it. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says,

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

Allah says

00:32:44--> 00:32:44

yada

00:32:46--> 00:32:50

yada Shehata what ohana, who mean, actually?

00:32:52--> 00:33:00

How is it that fasting is different than the other activity burger? Don't we do this for the sake of Allah.

00:33:02--> 00:33:05

Allah says, In this hadith could see

00:33:07--> 00:33:15

that the fasting person refrained from food and drink and his desires,

00:33:16--> 00:33:25

for whose sake only for my sake, and that is why I will reward him a special reward for that.

00:33:26--> 00:33:28

And so in this dunya

00:33:29--> 00:33:30

everyone seems to be fasting.

00:33:35--> 00:33:36

But not everyone's heart

00:33:37--> 00:33:38

is the same.

00:33:40--> 00:33:51

Some may be just fasting because those around them are fasting. Some may be fasting, because they don't want others to see, why aren't you fasting?

00:33:53--> 00:33:58

And that's why fasting in the month of Ramadan

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

is so much different

00:34:02--> 00:34:04

than the other acts of a Buddha.

00:34:05--> 00:34:06

My dear brothers and sisters

00:34:10--> 00:34:15

This is why even if you have the right intention too fast,

00:34:16--> 00:34:19

you may end up missing out on the reward.

00:34:21--> 00:34:26

And what you get out of your fast is nothing but hunger

00:34:28--> 00:34:36

and tiredness. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Rob basa Eman Lazar Allahu minstry me

00:34:39--> 00:34:43

Maru Baka Eman les Salah hoomin ki ami LSR.

00:34:44--> 00:34:50

The perhaps a fasting person all he gets out of his fast is hunger.

00:34:51--> 00:34:56

And the one praying at night. Perhaps all he gets out of it is

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

staying up all night.

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

Getting tired and fatigued.

00:35:05--> 00:35:09

And so it all comes back down to our intention.

00:35:10--> 00:35:33

It all comes down to our intentions. We have to rectify our intentions From today onwards for this month of Ramadan. Why are we fasting? Not only because Allah commanded us to do so, but also and more importantly, because we are, we are trying to do this for the sake of Allah

00:35:34--> 00:35:37

to attain the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:35:38--> 00:35:53

mon sama Ramadan, he man and what he said and houfy Rolla hoonah taka dynamin demba who is the one who has all of his sins forgiven in the month of Ramadan? The one who fasts sincerely

00:35:55--> 00:36:02

out of a man and looking forward to the reward with a loss of Hannah, who, what to Hannah?

00:36:03--> 00:36:08

And so my dear brothers and sisters, let us worship Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:36:10--> 00:36:50

not just outwardly but more importantly, from deep down from deep down inside, let this month of Ramadan as we enter the first day, let it be an opportunity for us to reestablish that relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala Let it be a chance and an opportunity to flee back to Allah subhanho wa Taala unshackling ourselves from what is holding us back and that is our evil desires. Let us make this month of Ramadan an opportunity

00:36:52--> 00:36:55

as we sit in seclusion at home,

00:36:56--> 00:37:13

let it to be an opportunity to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala sincerely without showing off to others sincerely so that we will be rewarded by a loss of Hannah who would data instead of

00:37:14--> 00:37:25

getting nothing out of our fasting and our our praying to Malaysia other than hunger and fatigue. We ask Allah Subhana who Adana

00:37:27--> 00:37:28

to grant us

00:37:30--> 00:37:32

to grant us good hopes

00:37:35--> 00:37:36

in him subhanho wa Taala

00:37:38--> 00:37:42

This is a time for us to think of Allah positively.

00:37:45--> 00:37:52

And so many of us are thinking why would a lot deprive us of coming to the masjid this Ramadan

00:37:53--> 00:37:55

and so my dear brothers and sisters

00:37:59--> 00:38:04

I am optimistic and every believer needs to be optimistic.

00:38:07--> 00:38:09

In Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:38:12--> 00:38:13

and we must believe

00:38:16--> 00:38:18

that Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:38:19--> 00:38:28

will shower down his mercy upon us in this month of Ramadan and will bring this crisis to an end soon.

00:38:30--> 00:38:33

It is something that the believer believes in.

00:38:34--> 00:38:36

It is something that we are certain of

00:38:37--> 00:38:43

the relief of a loss of Hannah who went to Hana his tune, it's not far away.

00:38:44--> 00:38:49

It's sooner than we think. And so we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:38:51--> 00:38:53

to shower His mercy upon us.

00:38:54--> 00:38:56

We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:38:57--> 00:38:58

to open up

00:39:01--> 00:39:03

the gates of his houses

00:39:05--> 00:39:12

on Earth, just like he has opened up the gates of His mercy last night and the gates of

00:39:16--> 00:39:18
