Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah in
in the first Juma
were all these victories,
which the oma had during this month of Ramadan, throughout history,
until talking about
conquests and victories that changed the landscape in this world that rocked the world.
Brothers and sisters in Islam, you will be amazed to find out that the major victories that happened in the life of this oma did take place or they did take place in the month of Ramadan.
For example, the battle for this young woman, Khan was in the 17th of Ramadan.
The conquest of Mecca, was in Ramadan,
the Muslims conquering Al Andalus and the rasiya. Under the leadership of Museum, we're Musab
Rama Humala, the year 93 after he died or 92 after he was in the month of Ramadan.
Salahuddin when he expelled the Crusaders, from Philistine from Jerusalem from Jerusalem
was in the month of Ramadan.
When the Crusaders came to the Muslim world, and they slaughtered everybody, their hands came on.
sala de let them go. And he actually said to them, I'm doing like my messenger did with his enemies in the day of Mecca when he returned, conquering the place where he was expelled from where he was fought by other people by its people. I'm going to do like them. I'm going to give you a safe passage and actually select with Dean Rahim Allah giving them safe passages because a lot of Muslim groups at the time disagreed with him. They said we should end up even he actually fought prevented some Muslims from attacking the Crusaders in their way out in
a famous battle, which was fought against them ago. It was in the month of Ramadan taboo was in the month of Ramadan.
Al qadisiya was in the month of Ramadan.
I counted over 12 major
battles that the Muslims won and all of them fall in in this month are from
Was it an accident? No, it was not.
Because quite frankly brothers and sisters in Islam
before we wage here is the scary word jihad. Again, it's people
you're supposed to wage jihad against an enemy that resides inside you. Each with you, sleeps with you.
I'm talking about your neffs
your neffs brothers and sisters in Islam is the first arena
And the Muslims were able
to produce out these in the other arena. Once they were able to defeat themselves, they feed their neffs brothers and sisters in Islam and Ramadan amongst that comes and exposes your knifes to you
in a classical traditional life a time of the eve when somebody commits a sin right away he says shaitan
now in Ramadan, we read in Hadith ebihara Ravi Allah one
I understand that there is some debate amongst the scholars regarding the level of effects the jinn do have on fasting people, whether it is zero effect, or whether it is lessons, but the bottom line, your enemies change. His impact is not going to be like when he is released. So you cannot blame shaitan anymore.
You will your left says Dave,
if you're doing something wrong still in Ramadan. That means it's dangerous. The guilt the blame should be on the neffs and once you're able to purify the sniffs once you're able to give that knifes
what Allah subhana wa Taala commanded us in the Quran to do
when I've seen
when I've seen women
brothers and sisters in Islam
Raja Halima Muslim, Paula Salalah alayhi wa sallam in
ujima ofI but only he
misled Alec to Malika
basically, the creation of each one of us states the following stages
40 days as verb
40 another for add 40 days a clock
another 40 days a piece of flesh to 220 days.
Then an angel called the angels of Allah the angels of the souls come and breathe is into the womb of the mother, the soul into the piece of flesh.
Now, when you receive that soul, and when that song was born into this world, it was a good soul. tala sallallahu alayhi wasallam solemn the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says the added value also
kulu the new
every newborn is born on the fitrah good so you receive the good soul when it was born, when it was handed over to you. But you were warned that if you do not work on purifying the soul, the soul will take you to evil. The soul will take you to wickedness and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala brought the curriculum brought the manuscript with which you're supposed to occupy your soul
And if you do not occupy your soul with the truth with the heart, your soul will occupy you with false hood with sin, with big data with whims with desires with ego until it becomes a wicked soul. Brothers and sisters in Islam, in Ramadan, and every Ramadan, each one of us is given the opportunity to be exposed 100% you and your soul if you're slacking, if you're not observing the Salah in the Ramadan, when it was made easy, this is your soul. If you're committing sins, this is your soul. If anything that you do in Ramadan is your soul, if you still get upset and angry, you cannot control your timber is your soul. And this is where you have a chance to correct that. This
is why brothers and sisters in Islam they call the month of Ramadan, the amount of change if you cannot change in Ramadan, then forget it. And this is the wisdom why the Prophet salallahu
again is a person who cannot even after all these powers are taking away the genie or taking away the human shayateen are taken away, you only have to handle knifes, that devil of your knifes and the Muslim is not doing it.
And this is the relevance between
the early Muslims
achieving and accomplishing all these victories which rocked the world, change the spectrum, change the landscape, the land that the real states in the world because they were able in the realm of on to do this brothers and sisters in Islam.
Like I said, a lot of Muslims and this is one of the reasons why
we don't take care of our souls. They don't understand that the soul within your body is an enemy.
We know Rasul Salam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Kumasi author of numerous shows.
Every time he would stand on the bobet he would begin his football similar to what I started my football with. And they call this football
and in every sermon of alhaja, he would say what do we lay when I do Billahi min truly am fusina O Allah protect us from the evil of our souls. When Abu Bakr su de colo
he said Dr. rasulillah, O Messenger of Allah, teach me words with which I can call upon Allah subhana wa Taala with in the morning and at night, one of the idea that we love God which we do as girls, and as government, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him multiple, and in the middle, he said, we'll call
him in shereena FSI, I seek refuge with Allah from the evil of minus
makes another door and says do not let my inner state charge of me, even for the blink of an eye while attacking me LFC perfetta I'm not even less than that. Brothers and sisters in Islam. How in Ramadan,
we're able to conquer,
to conquer, then
the first place, fasting and sincerity.
The first battleground
where your nifs once it changed in the dunya is showing up.
When you want to do something, your neffs demands recognition.
Any ad that you do and don't Britain
we all guilty of this.
First thing is one of the acts of worship will then a has almost zero competition.
The Muslim develops sincerity out of nowhere
You may come across a Muslim who doesn't pray five times a day doesn't even observe a lot of diversity that he's even guilty of a lot of the sins, but when the month of Ramadan is here, he will fast and you know, he will be starving to death
and he will be dying from thirst and he would wish to have a drop of juice or water to nourish sisters and he will be alone. In the house. No one is around him. But he will never drink he will never eat. He could eat and drink and come out and pretend that he's fasting. He's not gonna do it.
This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says fill it
in Lhasa Sol for inaho li
Zi B. This is the reason why Allah subhana wa Taala said about that ritual of fasting,
I will reward you accordingly.
I will reward you accordingly. Because I know the amount of sincerity you put in this act, you
demanding or your neffs cannot demand so much recognition. This is the first area brothers and sisters in Islam, developing consciousness of Allah subhanaw taala developing sincerity and sincerity is one of the conditions for any act of worship to be accepted. And in Ramadan, a Muslim is able to do that easily. Another victory that a Muslim
achieves in Ramadan again his his neffs the whims and the desires
the things that you desire. Imagine someone who deprives himself from lawful things. Food is low for water is lawful. But during the course of the day of Ramadan, dawn until sunset, no.
So imagine here you are depriving yourselves from what is lawful not Haram in a regular time. And you come and you commit the unlawful doesn't make any sense. And this is why brothers and sisters in Islam. Ramadan is the best time brothers who are smoking for example, well if
I met these brothers here and there during the year, he would not even stay without a cigarette for one hour. And when you talk to us, I can do it. I can do my job in Roma. He does not do it the whole day, 24 hours 12 hours or 14 hours.
It's a person is able to say no to his knifes once it comes to the whims and the desires brothers and sisters in Islam and our battle, which is a lot of Muslims fail throughout the day. But in Ramadan they are very careful not to fall in it not to fall not to lose that battle is the Battle of character. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us regarding this, he said
melomania da cola zu alhama de la salle de la hija de La Hoya Sharapova if you do not abandon speaking falsehoods, lying, cheating, backbiting, gossiping, acting falsehood, stealing or
doing something with your limbs? Then there is no need for you to refrain from eating and drinking forever can I help?
If you're fasting, be polite, be quite be nice to the people. Be nice so that he will have a good character. Well, Lloyd what I see brothers and sisters in Muslim communities not just in North though they devote their time to the service of the brothers and the sisters who come to break their fast they don't understand how much reward they get.
And at the very beginning, I shared with you that further Mecca happened in the Eve in the month of Ramadan. Imagine Muslims are marching from
Medina all the way to Mecca.
One of these days was extremely hot, extremely hot. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told about the difficulty of continuing to observe the fast.
So he decided to call for a drink of water. And he stood he utilized the license from an Karen I mean Kumari.
I mean I am in offer, he utilize the license. He took a drink, letting his companions know that they broke my fast today, some of the companions decided not to fast, and the majority of them decided to fast. Now, when they arrive at the location where they're supposed to overnight, of course, they are supposed to vote the turns, get the water, tie the animals there is a lot of work, a lot of work, a lot of work. Those water fasting had no energy.
They fall in in the ground, resting, but those who broke their fast because of my sins, went around and served everybody the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood up and he said
today, God bless the world. Why? Because they had that this character of serving other Muslims for the sake of Allah.
Having a good character brothers and sisters in Islam
when he spoke about
I believe it's the narrator. Ask your rasulillah
what makes this
you know what he said? He will call
that you spoke softly to the people. You show kindness to the people and you feed them you give them food, you serve the people in high talking about character brothers and sisters in Islam. Ramadan is the best time to develop the character. It aches, it makes you a little bit upset. When you feel see some Muslims have tried some Muslims strict about dealing with one another Muslims. Muslim lady in the believer is lenient. He should say salam O Allah.
How are you doing? Alhamdulillah This is the character that we need to develop in the month of Ramadan, brothers and sisters in Islam. Another battle that we waged again, it's in the month of Ramadan, and we do it in the month of Ramadan. A lot of Muslims do this is the Battle of stringiness the Battle of miserliness brothers and sisters in Islam. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, hello, Tom Luke una causa. Matthew Robbie is the Lamb septum crusher?
What Kamal insano cateura Imagine if you
have a law.
Can you imagine? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to be learn one day and
and don't be afraid that the Lord of the Throne is not going to give it back to you.
The hands of alloys fool
what he has doesn't decrease because of what he spins from it. Look how much did Allah subhanho wa Taala spin since he created the heavens and the earth. Here is the verse is still in you and me that a trade a disease of
a disease of denox is stinginess, even if you have in your possession the wealth of a law. Hello, I'm
We're currently in Santa Clara.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says can only be the end even if the
have goals. He will say hamdulillah he wants the third one.
So hon Allah. The month of Ramadan is the month of generosity. A lot of us plan to bathers occur in the month of Ramadan. A lot of us take the courage to feed those who need to be fed in Ramadan Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam given the incentive, that if you give food to assess the person regardless whether he is wealthy or food, you will receive an equal reward to their fasting without them losing any of the reward. A lot of Muslims in the month of Ramadan are very generous with their money. They held out the Muslim community, the causes of Allah This is why, why? Because you're able to because she normally would turn you away from this, but the message here, if you
still want to get into Ramadan, then this is a bad sign. This is an outside because supposedly.
Supposedly there are 70 jimny there is done the other honey who are inviting you enough to spend but in Ramadan, brothers and sisters, sisters in Islam, we see the generosity of our Muslim communities. Why? Because of Ramadan, brothers and sisters in Islam. Another battle, which is waste is that which a lot of us don't pay attention to the value of laziness. of slacking. Rasulullah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saya them in El Cajon, Oh Allah, I seek refuge with you from laziness in Ramadan. The script was so uptight with everybody. While long he wouldn't be attention to the mothers and what they go through. Especially the mothers with kids having to prepare the kids get the kids going and she is fasting. She's trying to develop some spirituality to it amongst where you feel like you're able to do a lot even though you're fasting even though you're fasting brothers and sisters in Islam, brothers and sisters in Islam, Ramadan is a month where you defeat
your disconnect your Hajj with the Quran.
Imagine you come every night and you listen to columella being recited in front of you, and you're willing to stand for an hour, sometimes a half, sometimes even 15 minutes, just to hear the recitation of the book of Allah. This is again why because you were able to get your knifes to do so. Brothers and sisters in Islam, Ramadan is among also when you defeat sins, would you take care of sins When you come out of sins? Allah, Allah Allah Allah your Salah mention that whoever first Ramadan, he man was the server.
Whoever observes them in Ramadan, he man

Ramadan, ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bring this oma back to the deen to the manner with which they can purify the neffs with which they can make their nests in a good shape so that they are able to defeat their enemies our
brothers and sisters in Islam nothing will change from the condition of this oma unless each one of us work so hard to change that knifes in the law Hello.
Hello and never changed the condition of a community unless the individuals inside that community will change. Be truthful with yourself be truthful or the law sees the opportunity.

convey this theme, but what is missing?
the guidance is preserved. The medium is missing.
enough's is missing, the character is missing. And this is where Ramadan comes to reform this. Let's make a difference brothers and sisters in Islam. We can only try for the sake of Allah. And if you truthful, Allah subhana wa Taala will give it to you think about a change. Imagine the Muslim Mama, were able to conquer their enemies with their minds and power. Look at your agenda. What is your agenda? What are you trying to conquer? praying five times a day? Is that too hard? Is that too hard to start from Ramadan and carry on? Pay there's a cafe user can have a good character. Your agenda is not as huge as the agenda of the oma as the agenda of fighting the Crusaders fighting the
theater. The mongul fighting the European standard low your agenda is little one. Just walk in it. Get it going. is Stephen Miller he doesn't.

Brothers and sisters in Islam, let Ramadan also be a chance that you defeat your knifes your ego to make up with your brothers, with your sisters, especially your kins. Belay by law. If you cannot do this in Ramadan if you cannot pick up the phone and call someone that you don't agree with someone you're having issues with and say Ramadan Mubarak to you. When are you going to do it? When the sharpener released when it becomes more difficult? This is a time for Scylla Callahan to make up with your family and friends and brothers and sisters. Listen, we're not perfect. I'm not perfect. They are not perfect. It's a big mistake yet what to expect other people to be angels could look
near them apart. We all make mistakes, do it for the sake of Allah and expect no return. I understand in some scenarios that you call those people and they start nagging and nagging and begging. They give you a hard time Why are you calling me just do it for the sake of Allah. Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lacell wa was McAfee kinal was

No is the one who tries to connect with his relatives and they don't allow him and he keeps trying. He keeps doing it that you call them Don't Don't call me back I'll call you. You're my sister. You're my brother. I love you for the sake of Allah. And I'm sorry if I wronged you. This is the attitude we need to unite brothers and sisters in Islam. We need to unite in our homes. We need to unite in our family circle and that unity will spill out in our massages in our communities. And with that unity we can do all along when Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke about
