to the last or second last day of the month of Ramadan.
a month which went by extremely quickly.
And so when Allah subhanho wa Taala said a Yama do that,
in the beginning of the chart, commanding us to fast
the point of it was to remind us
that these days will come and go, a Yamaha do that, a limited number of days.
And so if that is how we feel at the end of Ramadan.
The day went by so quickly.
And it feels as if it was only yesterday
that we were welcoming this month.
Then how about
the days of this dunya?
And that's why on the Day of Judgment,
when the people are gathered, they will ask one another.
How long did we spend in the dunya?
Some will say a few days Some will say 10 days as Allah says in the Quran. But Allah tells us that the closest in estimation among them are those who say that it was only one day.
This is the reality
This is a reality of time. There are lots of Hannah who would tell us war by will also buy time. Why did Allah subhanahu attallah take an oath to buy time because of how valuable time is.
And so the month of Ramadan has gone by
and we are about to bid farewell to this month.
As we come to the end of this month.
The question is where do you stand
and how well
have you done throughout this month.
That's because the month of Ramadan
is a training ground for us.
It's a training camp
to train us
to be able to control
ourselves enough's and its desires
to train us to become conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala
to train us to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala in worship,
to train us
to turn to Allah subhanahu wa taala
and seeking His forgiveness
and so now that the month is coming to an end,
we need to be reminded
that it doesn't end here.
Whatever good we set forth in the month of Ramadan
for us should be a
and not the end.
So although the days have come to an end,
whatever we have done throughout this month,
it should now continue.
It should now continue after Ramadan.
And that my dear brothers and sisters, is the true sign
that whatever we did in the month of Ramadan has been accepted from us.
And so now that we come to the end of Ramadan,
have my deeds been accepted or not?
And the true believer
that his deeds were not accepted.
The true believer
is not someone who is filled with confidence
and self admiration, that oh, I did such a great deed. Look at all of these acts of worship that I did in the month of Ramadan. And so he feels proud of himself
thinking that he did it all on him all on his own.
And through his own efforts. So now that the month of Ramadan is over, now I could rest.
That's not how it works. Yes, in this dunya
if you put effort into something, let's say you had an exam, and you studied very hard for it, and you sat the exam and you wrote it, and you feel you did well, and you have confidence that you did well. And when you see the result, Yes, you did very well.
But that's not how our relationship with Allah subhanahu wa tada works. That's not how the believer lives in this dunya. But rather, the believer lives between two things, between hope,
that what he did was accepted
and hope in the reward of a loss of Hannah who went to Hannah, and hope in the forgiveness of Allah and hope in the mercy of Allah. But balancing that, balancing it with fear, fear of loss, punishment, fear that perhaps what I did was not accepted. And so I need to continue to do more, until my last breath, why Buddha rock Dhaka had yet to kuryakyn. This was a command from Allah subhanho wa Taala. For who, not for me and you, but rather for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best of creation, the best of mankind, the closest of us to Allah Subhana who with the help of Allah commands him
and worship your Lord until you're clean until you have arrived at your last breath until death.
And so my dear brothers and sisters
as we come to the end of the month,
we should fear
we should fear that perhaps my deeds were not accepted.
And this is why they said if
they would pray to Allah subhanahu wa Tada.
They would pray six months before Ramadan came, they would pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala allows them to witness Ramadan.
six months after Ramadan they will be praying that Allah subhana wa tada accepted from them everything that they did in the month of Ramadan.
My dear brothers and sisters,
a sign that your deeds were accepted in the month of Ramadan
is that your state improves after this month.
A sign that your deeds were accepted and your debts were accepted in the month of Ramadan
is that a transformation comes in your life
for the better that your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala improves
that your life changed around
that you leave your old habits behind
and you start on a new footing
My dear brothers and sisters the month of Ramadan was a training ground for us to train us to
Get closer to Allah subhanahu wa tada not just for 30 days,
but so that it continues afterwards.
What is a training camp, it's not just that you come and you train,
and then you leave,
not continuing what you had started.
But rather the purpose of training your yourself
is so that you continue afterwards, so that you build on what you started. Not so that you start something and then you leave it.
And so we have the opportunity after the month of Ramadan, to continue
to continue where we left off in the month of Ramadan.
To continue with the Quran,
the Book of Allah Subhana, who was
reciting it, day in day out,
listening to it,
sitting with the Quran pondering over its meanings, trying to understand what Allah subhanho wa Taala is addressing us with.
We should continue after the month of Ramadan with fasting,
fasting voluntary fasts
because as we may have noticed, fasting, it helps us to achieve taqwa.
It helps us to become conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
suppressing our desires in what Allah has made halal food and drink, and what Allah subhanho wa Taala has made her arm which is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressing the youth. He said, Whoever among you can get married, then let him get married. But whoever is not able to then let him fast, because fasting helps in lowering the games and protecting the private partners.
So we should continue after the month of Ramadan. We have the month of Shahada,
which comes after Ramadan. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advises us to fast six days in this month, and said that whoever follows the month of Ramadan with six days of chawan, it is as if He fasted the entire year.
And that's because
Allah subhanho wa Taala multiplies our deeds by 10.
And so if Ramadan is 30 days, multiplied by 10, you have 306 days of chawan multiplied by 10 gives you 60 360 days, between the 355 days of the Hijri year and the 365 years of the solar year.
We should make it a habit to fast three days of every month as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged, we should make the habit to fast Mondays and Thursdays, and all other days, which are days in which it is soon not too fast.
We should continue after the month of Ramadan,
praying at night,
Korea Malaysia. So not to hurt you're
waking up in the middle of the night, forsaking our beds for seeking our sleep, to get up
and communicate with a loss of Hannah who went to China in the last third of the night, the part of the night, when a loss of Hannah who went to Hana is nearest to us, when he descends and calls on us asking who is out there who is calling upon me so so that I could answer his call, who is praying to me who is asking me for something so that I could give him who is seeking my forgiveness so that I could forgive him?
My dear brothers and sisters, praying at night
is a means of keeping us steadfast upon this gene.
In times of fitten when there are so many
fitness out there
in these trying times, whether they are related to our beliefs and don'ts or whether they are related to our desires.
praying in the middle of the night
is a means
Keeps us steadfast.
And that's why in the beginning of Islam, before the five daily sauna, watts became obligatory. The Muslims in Mecca, they would pray, clear moonlight. And that's why among the very first yet, that wasn't Han, who was Allah revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah mentions kiama Lille in Surah total Muslim.
My dear brothers and sisters
as we approach the final hours of the month of Ramadan,
we are reminded
that the month of Ramadan
was a month
in which Allah subhanahu wa taala forgives us our sin.
It was a month in which
Allah Subhana who Adana is close to us.
And he accepts our Eva dot more than any other time multiplying our deals. We are reminded
in the month of Ramadan, that Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives us our sin.
And so this is why
Allah subhanho wa Taala commences at the end of the month
when he took me to like data Valley to Kabira la Island
when I come to school,
at the end of the day of fasting in Ramadan, Allah subhanahu wa taala says, so that you complete the period 29 or 30 days.
And so that
you make tech B
you make tech beef saying Allahu Akbar, for what?
Well, II to kabiru la highlanda Hidalgo
so that you glorify Allah, proclaiming that Allah is great, seeing Allahu Akbar, for what Allah had guided you to in this month of Ramadan.
And so what we are reminded here
is that whatever we did in the month of Ramadan, it was not from our own self. It was not from our own efforts, but rather, it was because Allah guided us to it. And so if you are among the winners at the end of Ramadan,
then it is not because of your own efforts, but rather it is because Allah guided you to it. And Allah subhanho wa Taala chose you to be among those
who would have done what they did in the month of Ramadan, when I laquinta Sharon, so that you said Allah for that. And so what we are reminded here is
that we should be thanking Allah Subhana who were to Hana for his blessings upon us.
The blessings of Allah are so many, that we can never sit down and enumerate them. But among the greatest blessings are the blessings of Islam and being guided to do what pleases Allah Subhana. Who, what are my dear brothers and sisters?
If Allah subhanahu wa taala made you to be among those whose sins were forgiven in the month of Ramadan
if he made you to be among those
who have been saved from the Hellfire, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that in every single night in Ramadan, there are those who Allah saves releases from the Hellfire
if you were among them,
then after the month of Ramadan
Don't be among those who go knocking on the doors of the hellfire.
Getting closer to Hellfire, when Allah subhana wa tada
made a distance for you between it.
And so my dear brothers and sisters, whatever good we did in the month of Ramadan, it was because of Allah, we should not feel any self admiration at the end of the at the end of the month of Ramadan. But rather what what we should be reminded of is that this was all from Allah subhanho wa Taala none of this was possible, except with the tofi and the guidance of Allah Subhana. Who, what to have, and we're also reminded to continue whatever good we started in the month of Ramadan and so at the end of the month,
We should only be seeking the reward of Allah subhanahu wa tada
we should not be waiting for our reward in this dunya
but rather we should be waiting for it
on the Day of Judgment

My dear brothers and sisters,
as we come
to the end of Ramadan,
there are a few reminders
that we need to be reminded with
as part of the end of Ramadan.
The very first reminder
to give our cattle fitter.
And so the cattle fitter is obligatory
upon each and every single Muslim to give
at the end of Ramadan.
And so, it is obligatory upon each and every single Muslim.
Each and every single member of the household, whether they are old, whether they are young, some scholars even recommended and said it is encouraged to give it on behalf of the fetus,
in the womb of the mother.
The cattle fitter
is to be given by The Guardian, the head of the household.
And it is to be given as food
as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instructed us not as money.
And so it needs to be given as food to the poor.
And so if you don't have the means you don't have the ability to give it as food, then you should delegate someone give money to somebody who will purchase food with that money and give it to the poor. The point is, that what should be received by the poor is food and not money.
So there are many charities out there who are collecting money in order
to use that money to give food as a cattle fitter for the poor.
Also the capital filter
must be given before so not too late.
And so, if you have not given yours a capital filter until now, then now is the time before it's too late to give it
the second reminder
concerning fasting for those who did not fast in the month of Ramadan, whether it was the entire month or a few days because of a valid legitimate excuse. And so, for those who had a valid excuse to not fast the month of Ramadan,
then they are in two categories. The first are those who are not able to fast and they will not be able to fast in the future either. Meaning that they have a certain illness.
That prevents them to fast forever.
And so such people,
they are to give fiducia
for not being able to fast, they're supposed to give a failure to the poor.
As for those who are able to fast, they are physically able to, but they were not able to in the month of Ramadan, then they have to make up those days after the month of Ramadan, they should hasten to make up those days and not delete them until the next problem of
the third reminder
the day of the hearings
and the current
situation that we're in.
for almost everyone out there,
our massage would remain closed.
And it's unfortunate that we're going to have to have a day of heat without gathering and coming together
Considering this situation
considering the current lockdown,
we are reminded
that although we're not able to get together for the day of read and pray,
it doesn't mean
that we lose the joy of a lead on this very special day.
And so perhaps the only thing that we will not be able to do is pray salata Lee artillery, together as a congregation.
Other than that, everything else related to the date of the read
remains this year.
on the last day of Ramadan, whether it is today, or whether it is tomorrow
based on the sighting of the moon.
Once we hear that the new moon has been cited for a while and
then we start glorifying a loss of Hannah who went to China with terapeak.
And so we say Allahu Akbar
we say Allahu Akbar allowed and we tell our family members to do the same.
From that point, all the way until the morning
until Sonata Lee.
Secondly, on this day,
in the morning, when we get up,
make sure that we eat something
after Salatu fudger
and the wisdom behind that
is to indicate
that this is a day in which Allah subhanho wa Taala has permitted us to now eat whereas the 2930 days prior to this, Allah subhanahu wa tada forbade us. And so what this shows us is the greatness of Allah subhana wa Tada.
That's the only reason why we either refrain from eating
or we eat at the same time
in the morning,
it was only a day prior that we were not allowed to eat. The only day that the only reason why we refrained was because of the greatness of Allah in our hearts.
where the best of clothes where your new clothes, your eat clothes,
put on the best perfume,
adorn yourself on this day, as you would on every beat
because it is still the day of the heat, regardless of how we spent it.
pray eat with your family.
the situation that we're in this year is a unique one.
It is one
that has not been witnessed ever before in the history of Islam.
And this is why
we are hearing many different opinions.
Should we pray eat should
Not how should we pray, if we're going to pray,
what we should be reminded here of is that this is a new situation. And we don't have any explicit text in the Quran or in the sooner or even from the statements of the Sahaba.
To tell us what to do, in such a situation,
what we have are a few statements of a few companions
or their actions what they did when they were not able to pray,
but even that was different, they were not prevented from printing it.
And so, because of this, the scholars, they different, each one performing his own personal he had to arrive at what he sees as being the correct opinion.
And so, what is advisable now, is not to be disputing among one another.
But rather we say that this is a legitimate and valid, scholarly difference of opinion. And so what the Muslims should do is follow those scholars who he would normally follow in any other aspect of his Deen and this is why we have fatawa or we have federal committees, scholarly bodies who get together and consult one another. What we should do as a community is to consult and follow the opinions of these fatawa federal committees.
And so what is advisable in the current situation
is that we pray to pray salata lead at home,
but what we should also understand is, the salata lead in the end of the day,
is not a form of dying, it is not an individual obligation, but rather, it is between either being followed via a communal obligation, or a pseudonym.
And so if you decide not to pray Salatu received, then there's nothing wrong with that. But if you decide to pray it, then there's nothing wrong with that either. And so if you decide to pray it, then it should be prayed as you usually would pray salata lead, prayed at home with your family, the first Raka maker takbeer, seven times including the first that we're and then in the second rocker, when you get up from sujood, you're to meet six, six that we write.
And all of this is without a hotbar. All of this is without a hotel.
on this day of the read,
congratulate one another.
Even if you're not able to get together physically
call your friends, your relatives,
on this joyous occasion of a
and if you're able to get together with your family, your close family with your close relatives, then do so and enjoy the day of read. For it is a day that lots of China who went to China wants us to enjoy. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept from us
and our prayers, our clean
our recitation of the Quran,
our zeca and all of our good deeds in this month of Ramadan.
We asked a lot to accept it from us and to store it for us on a day in which we will need it the most. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala
to bring our hearts together even if he has not brought us physically together. We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada
We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to bring an end to the current crisis and to allow us to open the doors of our massages once again.
