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

hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Rasool Ullah.

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

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah, Allah He was happy he was was he remember whatever about the brothers and sisters in Islam, this is your brother Shakeology. I see you speaking to you from my Facebook Live, and this is our

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

Friday, supplemental sermon.

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

So this sermon that we're giving every Friday is a supplement because we all understand the global restrictions that we are all under. And because of these global restrictions,

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

the majority of domestic needs are closed.

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

Muslims are not

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

advised to congregate.

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

There is a

00:00:58--> 00:01:01

policy of social distancing.

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

There is also in many cases, people are quarantined.

00:01:09--> 00:01:19

So I am here, myself, in a self imposed isolation, no family, no interaction with anyone.

00:01:21--> 00:02:13

And I've decided for the benefit of myself and to stay connected and to perform my responsibility to the best of my ability. I've decided to do a supplemental sermon every Friday. Now this Friday is the day of is the first day of Juma. I mean, yesterday was the 30th of Shaban So, you know there are Muslims all over the world who have their different persuasions in their different capitalizations. And, you know, we don't want to get into, we don't want to get into all of that. We just want to say that yesterday was the 30th of Shaban and being the 30th of Shaban, then, without any doubt, today is the first day for Juma. I mean, today is the first day for Ramadan. So, you and I are those

00:02:13--> 00:02:55

living in the United States of America. On the eastern standard time, we are now engaged in fasting and it is now 132 or 133 in the afternoon, and we are now performing the Juma prayer or the Juma sermon. So brothers and sisters, I want to just say to you that this is not like a normal hautbois to Juma, you know, this is not a normal sermon, where the Imam is standing in the mimbar and he's facing a congregation of people and he's delivering to them a prescribed set of

00:02:57--> 00:03:50

principles and admonitions from the Quran and from the Sunnah. And then afterwards, they will pray the the Juma prayer, that's not what we're doing. I am doing a supplemental sermon. That means in the place of like, when you don't eat the you don't have access to eat the right foods and you don't get the proper nutrition, then it is advised that you take some kind of nutritional supplements. So what we are doing during this time of crisis is that we are offering this Juma sermon every Friday including the Fridays of Ramadan, so that we can offer a supplement for information, inspiration, and, and and admonition to benefit the speaker as well as those who are listening.

00:03:51--> 00:04:00

Today, I want to remind the Muslims, oh, this is Ramadan. And I'm sure that all over the world

00:04:01--> 00:04:39

various leaders, speakers, students of knowledge and scholars, they will be giving instructions to the people about the rules, the principles, the procedures, the proper understanding of how to fast, when to fast, who should fast, when to begin to fast, when to end, the fast, what are the protocols of the fast, they will be spending this time and I will also do this with myself, my colleagues, my supporters, and my family members, I will do that. But I'm not going to spend much time today.

00:04:40--> 00:04:45

doing that. Why? Because we have social media.

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

You can spend a couple of hours a day watching YouTube or going to Google or reading books online. There's so much information more than was ever available before. It's available to us today.

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

So since most of us are having the same experience that we are in our homes, with our families or by ourselves, we will have plenty of time to read about the rules, the parameters, and the protocols of the fasting. here I'd like to just start by saying hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Rasool Ullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah, Allah, he was having you as well. Do you remember what we're about?

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

I would like to begin by

00:05:31--> 00:06:01

paraphrasing, from the core end from sort of Baccarat, the 100 and 83rd to the 100 and 85th. I have the Quran you know where last panel what Allah said to us out of the blind militia regime developmental he, he said yeah, Yoda, Dena Amnon quotevalet, coma cm Qmr kuchibhotla, Dena min, Cabo de con la la contactar, con, the translation of which is generally all you who believe,

00:06:02--> 00:06:20

upon you is the prescription of fasting, as it was prescribed to those who came before you, meaning in previous revelations, in order that you could learn self restraint and awareness of God,

00:06:21--> 00:07:24

then the verses go on to say, these are days that are numbered and calculated by Allah subhanaw taala. So, whomsoever, for some of you, that is ill, or you are on a journey, then you can add those days in and you can add what you have missed in Ramadan, in days, outside of Ramadan, and, and, and, and also and for those who themselves who are unable to fast they can make what is called a Vidya, that is not a penalty, but it is a compensation by feeding poor people, and and the whoever is obese, obedient to these rules, this is good for them, and whoever can follow the rules of Ramadan, it is good for them. And and and, and and it is woman totowa hiren. And, and and it is good for them

00:07:24--> 00:07:41

also, and and that you also fast. So Allah subhanaw taala is telling us so for those who themselves are able to follow this prescription and follow these rules, there is good and and and also it is also better for you that too fast.

00:07:43--> 00:08:49

If you only knew. So then the verse goes on to say that Ramadan is a month, in which the quarter end was revealed as a guidance for the humanity and also in order to make things clear, and to offer guidance and a criterion and a criterion for guidance. So whoever among you, that is in their place, their home, their residence, their country, their city, let them fast. And for those who are sick or those who are on a journey, they can make up days other than and then it goes on to say the verse goes on to say that Allah Almighty God, he has not put this prescription upon you, Almighty God, He only wants for you ease. So, so, he only wants to us ease and he does not want for us as a result of

00:08:49--> 00:09:17

this prescription difficulty. So, let so and he wants us to complete the number of these days by praising Almighty God for that he has guided us in order that we would be grateful. So this is a paraphrase of the three is that I want to use today from sutra Baccarat, the 183rd to 100 and 85th verse.

00:09:18--> 00:09:29

Now let me just summarize a bit here. It is a month What did the last panel data say here it is a month in which the court and was revealed. Now this is the main thing that everyone should understand.

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

What is the significance of Ramadan First of all, is a month in which the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but also I want to point out something that many people don't know that it is also the month in which the court and was completed sapan Allah so now after everything, after all considerations, Ramadan is the month of the quarter and this is what we should know that Ramadan

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

is the month of the quarter end. So reading the Quran,

00:10:06--> 00:10:26

listening to the Quran, memorizing the Quran, they are all preferred exercises, Dear brothers, so fasting has its rules and fasting has its conditions. Fasting is a discipline, fasting is a prescription. Fasting is a science.

00:10:27--> 00:11:04

And the prophet SAW last time he said something very powerful. Here I want to give like three sayings of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam because we we discussed three verses of the Quran. Now I want to give three sayings of the Prophet Sall awesome so we can put things into perspective in regards to the prophetic advice. The Messenger of the last the last time said men sama Ramadan, Eamon and what is urban? gopher Allahu Lovell, Mata abdomen thumbay the translation of which is whomsoever fast the month of Ramadan

00:11:05--> 00:11:14

with faith, meaning that fulfilling its prescriptions, what is urban and knowing that

00:11:15--> 00:11:31

this is done for the pleasure and for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and knowing that the reward for it is only coming from Allah subhanaw taala Allah will forgive all of the sins that they have done.

00:11:32--> 00:11:45

completely covered Allahu Allahu Mata dum dum de Allah will forgive all of the sins that preceded them completely. Now, this is one then the prophet SAW sent he said to us

00:11:47--> 00:12:30

regarding Ramadan, whoever fast during Ramadan and spends their nights in prayer, out of faith, and hoping for the reward of a loss of Panama data, he or she will emerge at the end of Ramadan. That's what he means. He or she will emerge, purified from their sins as the day their mother gave birth to them so panela see what the reward of the Ramadan is, according to the Prophet sallallahu himself, then the prophet SAW said he told us fasting is a shield. It will protect you from the Hellfire and prevent you from performance sense now, all the human beings don't believe in the hellfire.

00:12:31--> 00:13:11

They don't believe in Paradise, but we Muslims, we have Eman about Hellfire, we have imagined about paradise, we have clear distinct beliefs in the hereafter that means after here, what will happen to us when we die and onwards we believe that and so, the prophets have said that fasting is a shield, it will protect you from the Hellfire and prevent you from performing sins. Having said all of this, now, let us see or let us understand the mocassin you know the objective? What is the social outcome or the results of fasting?

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

This is the question

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

the mocassin

00:13:17--> 00:13:41

So, all this prescription, all this discipline, you know all these rules, all these conditions, you know, this matter of faith that we are following seeking rewards of Allah subhanaw taala and trying to do and embracing the principle of what the Prophet told us in terms of its value. So what is the social outcome? What is the objective? What is the mikaze of the Ramadan? Okay?

00:13:43--> 00:14:21

One fasting will improve your health, you know, even people who are non Muslims, when they fast along with the Muslims, and they observe the disciplines of the Ramadan, to some extent not for religious reasons, just from maybe a health point of view, you know, they stopped smoking cigarettes, so they stopped drinking or they stopped sleeping so much or they stopped eating so much, or whatever they're doing even they're not doing it for God, there is a benefit. And for we Muslims, there is also not just a blessing, not only a spiritual reward, but also from a physical point of view, fasting will improve our health.

00:14:22--> 00:14:28

Number two, fasting will strengthen our thinking. You see when you're fasting,

00:14:29--> 00:14:30

your mind is clearer.

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

Your mind is clean, your mind is settled. So fasting will give you more focus. Fasting will strengthen your thinking. Number three, fasting will improve your family relationships. So panela during this month of Ramadan, you will thinking more husband will think more about his wife and appreciate her more. The wife will think more about her husband and appreciate him more. The parents will think more about the children. The children will think more about the value of

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

Having parents, you know, we will be thinking about our hour an hour, I'm thinking more about my mother, she's 97 years old, God bless her and living and it muslimah I'm thinking about her every day. And during this fasting, I'm calling her every single day. So fasting will also improve our family relationships, fasting will add a shine to your face

00:15:24--> 00:15:25

panela

00:15:26--> 00:15:47

when the person is fasting, they may not see the shine on their own face. But when they go to their jobs, when they meet their neighbors, when they meet other people, when they go to the supermarket, or go to the bank, or go to wherever those people will see the shine the radiance on the face of the person who is fasting.

00:15:48--> 00:15:51

Fasting will bring humility to your demeanor.

00:15:52--> 00:15:56

You see, while you're fasting, somebody might insult you, you will just say, I'm fasting,

00:15:57--> 00:16:08

you will take it, you'll just smile. You see, fasting will help your demeanor. Fasting will make you more humble. Fasting will make you more quiet.

00:16:10--> 00:16:54

You know more reserved, more, more resigned, fasting will do that for you. Fasting will also make you more grateful. So Panama, when you break it when you eat a date in the morning or you eat a date at night, or even a grain of rice that's on the plate, you have a tendency not to leave a day and throw it away because you will be more grateful because you will be realizing that millions of people are living in the world today. And they are they are they are observing an involuntary fast. an involuntary fast, people are living off of $1 a day. You know, like 1.5 million people in the world like we're talking about one fifth of the world's population, you know is living off of less

00:16:54--> 00:16:55

than $1 a day.

00:16:58--> 00:17:24

Some people right now, they're drinking any kind of water they can find dirty, putrid water, smelling water, they didn't get it. Why because it's water. They any anything they can out of the trash. Why? Because it's food that somebody else threw away. So when we are fasting, we will become more grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for all the blessings that He has given to us also, when we are fasting, we have greater discipline.

00:17:26--> 00:17:29

We organize ourselves, we organize our time.

00:17:31--> 00:17:51

We are giving sadaqa out of our whatever money God has given to us. We are watching our eyes and we are watching our tongues. We're getting up at a certain time and we're praying at a certain time and you know we're taking everything into account. So we become more disciplined. See, during this Ramadan, also, you want this month of Ramadan, your face will be increased.

00:17:53--> 00:18:11

Your face will be increased, you will have more concentration. You will think more about Almighty God. You think more about the paradise and about the Hellfire, you'd be thinking more in semi about your the purpose of your life, you'll be more you'll be you'll be thinking more about your actions in the end and the the

00:18:13--> 00:18:54

the result of your actions you'll be thinking about that more the consequences of your actions. And therefore, you'll be reading more code and you'll be reflecting more on scripture. Therefore your faith will be increased. And also you will increase your knowledge you will read more Hadith you read the seal of the prophets allows them you will make more altcar remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala you will read more and you will read more puzzle MBA the stories of the prophets that a Muslim you know you will be discussing with other Muslims and listening to other Muslims scholars and students of knowledge and and do your leaders about admonitions and different things to benefit for

00:18:54--> 00:19:31

your life. So your knowledge will be increased and also during this month, the prophet SAW Sam said this month is divided into three parts the first 10 days is 10 days of mercy. The second 10 days is 10 days of forgiveness. And the third 10 days is protection from the hellfire. So, this is just 1010 of the physical obvious rewards that we get from fasting that is not so obvious just simply by the rules that we are following. So these 10 and much more assets equal a share of acquisition.

00:19:33--> 00:19:48

The word is acquisition when you acquire something, assets that bring you a state of acquisition. A state of endowment. endowment means you're given something very powerful.

00:19:49--> 00:19:50

energized

00:19:52--> 00:20:00

you know when you are in doubt you have been given something maybe to somebody else doesn't have you've been given something that's very unique you've been given

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

Something is very powerful. It's called endowment. And as a result, during Ramadan we have the opportunity to be empowered.

00:20:09--> 00:20:17

The brothers and sisters in Islam now, this Ramadan 2020 is a very unique and powerful Ramadan for us

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

for all Muslims everywhere

00:20:22--> 00:20:24

this Ramadan 2020

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

everyone is going to remember this Ramadan 2020

00:20:30--> 00:20:36

our children and our grandchildren are going to remember Ramadan 2020. Why?

00:20:38--> 00:20:45

Because this Ramadan probably most of us, for most of us, there will be no congregational prayers subpanel luck.

00:20:46--> 00:21:02

could anybody have imagined this 90 days ago? Could anybody who imagined this year a year ago? Absolutely not. But subpoena law. For most of the Muslims in the world right now, there will be no congregational prayers for Ramadan 2020.

00:21:04--> 00:21:08

The Masjid will be closed most of the messages in the world are closed

00:21:10--> 00:21:11

in order to do what

00:21:12--> 00:21:38

in order to protect the welfare of the public and to protect the health of the human beings, the masjids and congregational places have been closed down and people are now under restriction and isolation and quarantine because of the health pandemic during this month of Ramadan 2020 most of the messages will be closed.

00:21:39--> 00:21:41

There will be no Juma prayers like today,

00:21:43--> 00:22:09

normally we will be in Juma will be someplace in the masjid, in our ranks shoulder to shoulder listening to the football after that standing in prayer. And after that, holding them hugging each other shaking hands, hugging each other, kissing each other. But now we cannot do that. No Juma prayers. So we are forced to do something to supplement as we're doing today.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

There'll be no gatherings left out.

00:22:13--> 00:22:43

Normally when we break the fast we go to the mosque. Bring our families there. And eat and drink and pray the Maghreb and break out fast and pray the mothership and enjoy ourselves and let the children also enjoy themselves and get the blessings in the social consequences and rejoice for this Ramadan but guess what? Ramadan 2020 no iftaar in the message we will have to do if time with our families. See?

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

Also there'll be no evening total via

00:22:49--> 00:22:51

most of the messages will be closer together with

00:22:53--> 00:22:57

you know the prayer that's made the kiama whale dismayed and domestic.

00:22:59--> 00:23:05

What are the eight Raka or the 20 Raka there will be no tearaway why because of the social distancing

00:23:06--> 00:23:11

the protocols observing the recommended protocols of social distancing.

00:23:13--> 00:23:27

So subpanel see what is being taken away from us see what the shear crisis has. What has happened with this crisis. This is some of the things that we will be going without that distinguishes Ramadan. 2020. Also,

00:23:28--> 00:23:44

there'll be no it decaf in the last 10 days of Ramadan. Normally the province of Sindh recommended that somebody from the community some members of the community do decaf, they do seclusion in the mosque, maybe know it decaf. We're doing ettercap inside of our homes.

00:23:46--> 00:23:55

Some people are doing it decaf inside the hospital they're being quarantined. So Allah has created during this Ramadan 2020 a different kinds of decaf.

00:23:57--> 00:24:00

And perhaps, if this not lifted, there will be no ADAL

00:24:02--> 00:24:17

normally, when all the Muslims from any region or any town or any area, you know any community they will come together 1000 5000 10,000 100,000 Muslims will come together on the atrial flutter and celebrate.

00:24:19--> 00:24:25

Perhaps, if this pandemic is not lifted up, there'll be no it'll fit.

00:24:26--> 00:24:30

We will have to find some other creative ways to have a

00:24:32--> 00:24:33

a bit of

00:24:35--> 00:24:39

a congregational prayer for the Muslims at the end of Ramadan.

00:24:41--> 00:24:44

And for people who normally would want to go to Amara

00:24:45--> 00:24:47

during Ramadan, there's no ombre

00:24:48--> 00:24:49

sapan Allah.

00:24:50--> 00:24:56

No omura that means there'll be no to us. There's no to laugh around the heroin.

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

No prayers in the haramain

00:25:01--> 00:25:06

And no visitation? No zero, no, no, no, no, no, no visiting

00:25:07--> 00:25:10

the prophets message so long and he was sent him.

00:25:11--> 00:25:13

No visiting messages.

00:25:14--> 00:25:22

This is what has happened. And this is the characteristics of Ramadan 2020. However, I started out by saying to you

00:25:23--> 00:25:52

that this Ramadan that we are experiencing, is very unique and very powerful. And it is a month of empowerment. So when we think about all the losses, what we've been deprived of the difficulties, the anxiety, the trauma, the sickness, the death, the trials, the depression, we think about all of this is somebody might say, how is this here, a situation of empowerment? Well, it's all about perspective.

00:25:54--> 00:26:14

Dear brothers and sisters, it's all about perspective. And I started by saying that this is a month of empowerment, let us discuss that. It is a month of empowerment, because considering the restrictions brought about by the pandemic crisis, see what benefits will come to us. One,

00:26:15--> 00:26:21

you and I, we will be forced to examine ourselves this month, because we're going to spend a lot of time

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

by ourselves.

00:26:25--> 00:26:55

So Panama, we will be forced to examine ourselves. Maybe before this time, we didn't have time, we were busy. You know, we were working with sleeping, we're enjoying we're eating, we're playing, we're exercising, we got so many appointments, and so many engagements, and so many social things that we are engaged in, we never have the chance to examine ourselves, to be with ourselves. But now we do, we have plenty of time to examine ourselves, we will be forced to also be with our families.

00:26:57--> 00:27:10

Parents will be with their children, siblings will be with each other school has been postponed. families will spend subpanel Pamela, you know, hours and hours together,

00:27:12--> 00:27:30

there will be the they will get the pressure of being together that they didn't have before. And they will have to find ways of discussing things with each other discovering each other. See what Allah subhanaw taala did some time he's mentioned in the Quran and sort of Baccarat, the 100 and

00:27:31--> 00:28:14

the 116th I believe it is, well last month Allah says and perhaps you think that a thing is bad for you, but Allah He because it to be good. And you think sometimes the thing that is good for you, Allah he show you that it is not. So here, we see that this pandemic crisis, although it has caused many different things that we are clear about also, this tremendous benefit. You see, we will have time now to study and reflect the Quran you always wanted to recite that you always want to read some Arabic language you want to increase yourself in, you know the spirit of the practice of STEM, you want to know more about, you know, more Hadees that you want to review, you know, you know, you

00:28:14--> 00:28:39

want to go over your own prayer, you want to go over you want to read more and you want to sit with your family and and recite different things. The father and the mother want to sit with their children and share different supplications the children want to also sit with the mother and father and talk about issues happening in their life. So we have more time to study more time to reflect because of this crisis.

00:28:40--> 00:28:44

We will now pray with our families. Krissy we're not praying in the mosque.

00:28:45--> 00:28:48

So you get up for 5g. Now you can wake up the whole family and pray.

00:28:49--> 00:28:51

If you're fortunate to have your family inside with you.

00:28:53--> 00:28:55

You can pray together now. No excuse

00:28:57--> 00:29:11

fudger God, awesome. Margaret slaughter a share. The family is together. They can pray Gemma together that there was not during the fall. Secondly, we have the chance to study and counsel

00:29:12--> 00:29:15

and look in the face of one another.

00:29:16--> 00:29:31

Brothers When's the last time you really sat down and held the hand of your wife and looked in her face? My dear sisters, when's the last time that you held the hand of your husband and sat down with him and looked in his face? Not talking just looking

00:29:32--> 00:29:59

at the disposition, the joy, the pain, the sorrow, the neglect? When's the last time you did it? Now you have time every day to do that? When's the last time that you just sat with your family in a circle and looked at each other? talked about things. When's the last time that you cried with your family? When's the last time you held your hands up and made supplication with your family? When's the last time that the grandchildren

00:30:00--> 00:30:12

looked at the grandmother or grandfather or the grandfather and the grandmother looked at their grandchildren. When's the last time that we got a chance to do that? When's the last time well now we have the chance to do that.

00:30:13--> 00:30:17

We will start to fast together. See in the morning, we will get up and have some horror.

00:30:20--> 00:30:41

Can you imagine we was not doing that before the Father would get up and eat so or the mother would get up and sauce on didn't even go to work and she would go to work and the kids got to go to school and all that and we just email support very quickly, individually now. We have families and a lot simpler the law did. We start the fast together and we will break the fast together because we're not going to be rushed.

00:30:43--> 00:30:45

You see, this is what has happened.

00:30:46--> 00:30:59

We can hold Juma in our homes. The rule is that if there are three people you can do Juma. The father, the mother, the child if the three people do Juma. So we can do joumana homes.

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

That means you can somebody can give the sermon, if it's one if one Hadith, one adkar and then upgraded to Raka. Juma, you can do that. And if you cannot, you can pray the door.

00:31:12--> 00:31:17

You can listen to a sermon as I'm giving right now. And then you can pray as a family you can pray

00:31:18--> 00:31:18

together.

00:31:20--> 00:31:22

And we can do tomorrow we're in the evenings,

00:31:23--> 00:31:26

the kiama lay, we could do it in the evenings as a family.

00:31:28--> 00:32:09

We have the chance now to think about our families. I mean about our communities, our extended family members, we have the chance to think about our neighbors, we have the chance to give out sadaqa we have the chance to share our food, we have a chance to give sadaqa to the poor, we have a chance to look through our closets and see what we're not wearing clothing that we're not wearing, we can take it out and wash it and iron it and fold it and then put it together and take it to a place where it can be said to people who snipping out in the snow, sleeping in the rain, they have no shoes, they have no place to lay down, we have a chance to look through our closets and make an

00:32:09--> 00:32:10

inventory of what we have.

00:32:13--> 00:32:57

See your brothers and sisters, we can also make more resolutions to examine our future. Think about it, make a Ramadan resolution. Today, I will stop doing this, I will stop doing that. I will stop doing this. And I will start doing that. Make a resolution with pure intention, mega a powerful promise to Allah subhanho wa Taala that things that you have not been doing things you have been neglecting that you will do and things that you should not be doing things that you have been violating that only you and Allah knows you will stop doing. This is part of what we can do

00:32:58--> 00:33:06

to bring power to us during this Ramadan. Now, dear brothers and sisters, you have to be careful.

00:33:07--> 00:33:11

There are people who are thinking very negative because they're just like that.

00:33:13--> 00:33:14

They just thinking about the negative.

00:33:16--> 00:33:57

You know, they thinking about conspiracies about you know, the 5g and I didn't say it's not real. I didn't say that 5g is not a danger. And I didn't say that. There's no connection between 5g and the Coronavirus. I didn't say that. I'm only saying that there are people who are fixed on this every single day they just passing on these conspiracies and warnings and bringing about more anxiety and and grief and fear and confusion to the people and talking about who's trying to kill off black people who's trying to kill off Hispanic people and who's trying to kill off poor people and who's trying to decimate the human race and this and that. And so, and maybe a lot of it is true.

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

There could be a lot of scientific

00:34:01--> 00:34:02

dialectic

00:34:05--> 00:34:09

issues that are relevant. And I'm not dismissing that.

00:34:10--> 00:34:30

I'm saying to you that the profits or losses told us you don't feel Yes, zero to zero. That is make easy, make things easy for the people and not difficult for bus chiru will add to enough fear to bring good news to the people and do not bring bad news and depression to the people.

00:34:32--> 00:34:59

This is what the problem is I'm told us so dear brothers and sisters, there are people who are thinking negative. They are preoccupied with negative thinking. They blaming this and blaming that, you know they're blaming the Illuminati they blame some people blaming the designers and Christians is blaming Muslims and Muslims is blaming Hindus and Hindus is blaming Buddhists and Buddhist is blame Miss and dassen. You know, men is blaming women and women blaming Men in Black

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

Blaming whites and whites is blaming blacks in all kinds of crazy stuff. Older people is blaming young people and young people is blaming older people and just blaming just never stops. And your inbox will just be full of conspiracy, negative things, blaming and dark thoughts.

00:35:22--> 00:35:33

I advise you not to allow any negative messages to stay with you. Don't let them if they come delete them.

00:35:35--> 00:35:48

If you think they're meaningful, read them, archive them, but do not sit around thinking about it. Because you will become a victim. Although Allah wants us to become victorious.

00:35:49--> 00:36:22

Allah wants us to win. A victim never wins. You will be victimized by your thinking and the thinking of other people. So don't allow your inbox to become flooded with negative thoughts, blaming conspiracies, negative thoughts about destruction, about death and you know people scheming in line and you know, people who are doing conspiracies, conspiracies have never stopped. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran in surah. Yaseen Yeah, Benny Adam,

00:36:23--> 00:36:29

he says, All children of Adam did not not warn you, not to worship the shaytaan.

00:36:30--> 00:37:00

But that you should worship me that shaytan is an avowed enemy to you. So shaytan is the enemy, he has always been an enemy. shaytaan and the people of Satan and the minions of Satan, and the people of shaitaan, the people of evil, the people of conspiracy, they have always been there. This is nothing new. Technology didn't bring them something new. So don't don't keep on thinking about all this stuff about somebody trying to, you know, kill you off.

00:37:02--> 00:37:09

These people have always been there and they are there. And there is some truth to that. But don't be preoccupied with that. Think good things.

00:37:11--> 00:37:38

irrigate your mind, with water and knowledge. And then seed your mind with good thoughts about the future about your life, about your family, about the welfare of humanity, think good and good will come to you. You keep thinking negative. You will be a victim and victims are paralyzed. victims are in the prison of the woods who victimized them.

00:37:40--> 00:38:01

Just because we are harmed doesn't make us prisoners. because somebody's scheming against us doesn't make us that doesn't make them win doesn't make us lose, you lose when you submit to the evil thinkings. Don't be preoccupied with that this Ramadan, clean out your inbox from conspiracy theories. Read what you think you need to read an archive it

00:38:03--> 00:38:12

and do not be reminders. Don't be people who are always being reminded about being victimized. Think positive, think healthy.

00:38:13--> 00:38:32

Even though we are surrounded by disease, trauma, death and anxiety is everywhere. Still. How do you think the health workers? How do you think they keep working and going to go into work every day? How do you think the police and the firemen? How do they go to work every day? How do the doctors go to work every day?

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

How do they do it? Thinking negative thinking about the images that they are looking at how they do it.

00:38:39--> 00:38:52

They have to find a higher power to motivate them and you and I have to find a higher power to motivate us. Don't allow the negative thinking of others to make you a victim.

00:38:54--> 00:38:55

That the blessings and

00:38:56--> 00:39:06

the great provisions which God has given to us Let the blessings and the network of Allah subhanho wa Taala this Ramadan Let this be always in front of us.

00:39:07--> 00:39:18

Ramadan, Ramadan 2020 and the COVID virus is a great test for the world. It's a great test for Muslims all over the world. But the test is from Allah.

00:39:20--> 00:39:25

The test is not from shaytaan. The test is from Allah. We believe in the Shaheed

00:39:26--> 00:39:28

you know what

00:39:29--> 00:39:59

the good is from Allah. And the evil is there to test from Allah subhanho wa Taala but Allah only was good for us, we will pass the test. This will this situation will pass on in the model. In the last three years. After every difficulty there is ease after every difficulty there is ease so Muslims don't be preoccupied with the test. You will come through this test, you will win and that's why I'm saying to you that Ramadan

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

And may Allah subhanho wa Taala give all of us the reward for our sincerity. melasma will allow this Ramadan to be an opening an epiphany for all of us and not a ditch and not a dungeon. And that's something dark but enlightenment. And may Allah subhanaw taala allow all of us to be beneficiaries of His mercy

00:41:20--> 00:41:35
