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

This session in sha Allah will be very beneficial in sha Allah, full of practical points, spiritual points and technical points as well. It's an all encompassing lecture in sha Allah. But there's, of course, a lot of details not included. But just something to give you a strong understanding of what Ramadan is, because that's one of the main pillars to exceed in life is to understand what is it you're exceeding in. So may Allah grant us beneficial knowledge amenable alanine. And before I proceed, I want to share with you that table of contents, we will discuss five, eight, only five eight, from Chapter number two solo till Bacara, from verse 183, to verse 187. So 8384 8586 and 87

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

in sha Allah.

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

If I were to tell you, if you were told in this example, we'll take it from our mache that you will be winning $10 million

00:01:01--> 00:01:47

in a few weeks $10 million. How would you feel be very honest with yourself? The greatest mood in the world? Few weeks, few weeks away, I'll be a millionaire. Few weeks away, I'm gonna be rich a few weeks away, my life will change few weeks away. I will never be who I am today. A few weeks away. I'll have a whole new page, Allah waka. So two weeks later, That Man That Woman has $10 million. But you know what Allah says? Colby Fogg Lillahi wa rahmatullahi fabby Delica. Felicia Franco who were higher on me Maya mountain. Allah says, when you know Allah's blessings upon you and Allah's mercy, it is greater, be happy with Allah as Rama be happy with Allah's forgiveness, be happy with Allah's

00:01:47--> 00:02:28

blessings, because there's nothing that can match it. So what I'm trying to say here, the joy that people may get for knowing you will be a millionaire in two weeks and a few weeks. We should be happier than that person because Ramadan is coming in a few weeks, because Allah Rama is more valuable than everything. Because everything in this world called lumen aleja fan, everything will go to an end, everything will be finished. You and I will be done in this world. But the Senate the good deeds that say you add the bad deeds will always carry on till we meet Allah subhanho wa taala. So five Aya from SUTA Baqarah that we will discuss in sha Allah. Throughout these five verses, I

00:02:28--> 00:02:41

will take practical and relatable tangents in sha Allah. So we'll go through the idea we pause, go out a little bit from the if then come back to it in the lives of Hanwha to Allah and may Allah grant us all success say me

00:02:42--> 00:02:44

Bismillah the first part of the ayah

00:02:45--> 00:03:07

I will be leaving the shaytani R rajim. Allah says yeah, you are letting me know. These are the only set of verses about Ramadan in the whole Quran. The only set of verses so pay close attention to every word as much as you and I possibly can in sha Allah, or you who believe this is a call to all believers, may Allah make us die with La Ilaha illa Allah Sammy

00:03:09--> 00:03:54

and even Mr. Audra the Allahu Anhu he says a very powerful statement. He says either send me to La Jolla cool if you hear and you read the Quran where it says Oh you who believe pay attention. He says Pay close attention whenever you come across this line in the Quran why? Even Mr. Wood said or the Allah one because never does this statement come except it is followed by an obligation which you have to do or a prohibition which you have to stay away from. So next time inshallah throughout Ramadan and throughout your life as you read the Quran, yeah, are you kidding me? No. What's next? It's a command coming up May Allah Allah was to fulfill the following command. The command in this

00:03:54--> 00:04:12

area you Alladhina amanu Allah says quotevalet camassia fasting has been obligated upon you it's wajib not just that katiba Alikum cm cm is So worship is so obligatory that it became one of the

00:04:13--> 00:04:36

centromere Allah bless you one of the five pillars of Islam five pillars and if you take one of the pillars out it will fall how many pillars that this podium have if you got from the bottom how many pillars and a simple three right? If I take one especially in this way it was designed I take one the whole thing collapses so there's no such thing as I'm a Muslim I do four of the five

00:04:38--> 00:04:47

because they hold Islam will collapse even the younger brother collapse from exact Allah may Allah bless and protect you say I mean right because I know I'm a very good Muslim why

00:04:48--> 00:04:57

No, I do just follow the five that the whole thing will collapse because Islam was established on five pillars Ramadan being one of them may Allah Allah was to fulfill all five say, I mean

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

cootie ballet como

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

See him? Then Allah subhanho wa Taala when he talks about cm now I'm going to go on a tangent, can we go on a tangent? What is fasting consists of, you're not allowed to eat, you're not allowed to drink. And for the adults, you're not allowed to have intimacy with a spouse. three main parts and common you'll see different things that break the fast and so on and so forth. Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam though you're not supposed to eat and drink, he said something very profound. He says,

00:05:30--> 00:06:15

fasting is not just the abstaining from food and drink. No, that's not just it. He says, there's no point in you fasting if you will not let go of flying and bad language. And if I lie, or I say bad words, I broke my fast lap. Don't get too excited. May Allah forgive us Europe. If you do say bad language if you do a light emblem Oban and fortunately, it is very damaging to the reward that you are deserving of. If for example, you're supposed to get 100 Good deeds, it gets diminished for every bad word, every bad scene that you looked every backbiting that you're hurt, every backbiting that you said everything the Haram consists of the reward diminishes, diminishes and diminishes, may

00:06:15--> 00:07:00

Allah protect us. That's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, there's no point of view fasting, when you don't let go of these two things. So this is as a warning. Proper fasting is the fasting from food, drink and intimacy, but also from bad language and so on. Because the last thing that you want, the last thing that you want, is to fast and work hard struggle, sweat, feel thirsty, and there's no outcome except what I just said. Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Rupa saw him in late Salah hoomins Yami, il June, there are some people that fast all day, and the only outcome is not good deeds. The only outcome is not greatness and achievement. The only outcome is

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

being thirsty and hungry. That's it. May Allah make us of that group, yada, yada.

00:07:05--> 00:07:13

Then also a lice Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam even advised you. He says, as you're fasting, if someone comes and wants to argue with you,

00:07:15--> 00:07:54

okay, what do you do? You're a loser. And you're a loser. Okay, I'm gonna punch you in the face. I will Katella even wants to start a fight. In normal in one fasting? What do we say in the liberty? Allah man you saw, may Allah protect you heavy. You say two times. I am fasting. I am fasting. You know, we don't usually tell people the good stuff that we're doing. By the way I pray pm last night, you don't usually say that. You shouldn't you know how much I donated. By the way. Let me show you my bank statement. We don't usually do that. But when it comes to fasting, though, it's hidden, but you say it. So to remind yourself and remind the one who is you're speaking to, and calling this

00:07:54--> 00:08:11

problem. I'm fasting. So I'm going to excel further in my patients, I'm going to excel further in my humbleness, I'm going to excel further in my forgiveness, you name it because I'm fasting. Because if I get into this, my reward diminishes. You see that? I remember one time at work.

00:08:12--> 00:08:37

Back in the day we used to work from from work from the office. We used to have cubicles. So I remember the brother right next to me a Muslim brother. It was one of the automotive companies and older brother, the manager. She came to him and she gave him like a task. And he was angry. It was Ramadan. He was so upset. He told her you're lucky. I'm fasting.

00:08:38--> 00:08:47

She's like what? He said, I'm just telling you, I'm gonna tell you something. You're lucky. I am fasting because I would have just whoo all the words coming from my mouth.

00:08:48--> 00:09:29

Then she actually walked away. It's like okay, whatever. So when she walked away I felt this man just ruin the image. So I went to her and it was Kim. She passed away. So I went to Kim and Kim Ashwin explained something my friend here my brother on the other side. What he meant is that while we're fasting Mr. Bond there's extra emphasis on avoiding bad language. So we avoided throughout the whole year Miss games not just today. It's not like in a week He can say whatever he wants in Ramadan while fasting there's extra pressure extra emphasis on avoiding bad language may Allah protect us era balala mean? What's the next part?

00:09:30--> 00:09:43

Some of us may be hearing this for the first time. Maybe we have some non Muslims in the crowd. Even some Muslims are like a little bit concerned. 5050 I'm excited for Ramadan but I'm a little bit nervous but I don't want you to get nervous because of this.

00:09:44--> 00:09:56

Allah says come out kuti by Alan Levine. Mm publikum Ramadan was prescribed fasting. No think of Ramadan. Fasting was prescribed upon you just like I was prescribed on those before you.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

What do you benefit from this line?

00:10:01--> 00:10:04

What do you guys benefit share with me something and let us Milla God Allah Allah

00:10:11--> 00:10:29

I sent very good point he said since previous prophets Moses and Jesus moose our isa Ibrahim, they had this legislation this comes to show you that it's all from the same source I love that sent nine my nose mashallah they couldn't read my notes to be honest with you. Yes Allah

00:10:30--> 00:10:40

I'll tell him Salahuddin Allah Salah all from the same source. See we keep learning. Okay? What does this line mean to you? Bismillah

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

all the way in the back

00:10:49--> 00:11:00

there is correct before you were born it was prescribed on to you like a god decreed it. But it means before you guys even existed previous nations. Excellent. What does it mean to you?

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

Last one, Santiago.

00:11:09--> 00:11:26

Excellent. This is a command from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So you got to do it like everybody else. But one of the things to help those who are struggling and so on, and also appreciate there's multiple means to it. Anybody here don't raise your hand. Ever had a test back and you got an F? Test? Okay, no no's?

00:11:27--> 00:11:40

Right? All those who got an F, right? May Allah protect all teachers say I mean, all teachers. When you got an F, what do you do? What do people typically do when exams are passed back? What do people usually ask? What did you get?

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

What do you get? What about you?

00:11:44--> 00:11:49

And then when they're asked the ones who got an F, when they're asked, how about you? Like, I don't know, they're telling you.

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

Don't worry about it.

00:11:52--> 00:11:58

What benefit will you gain? If I tell you my great benefit will happen? massive benefit?

00:11:59--> 00:12:09

So then the guy was asking you He says you don't want to tell me, whatever. But I'm going to tell you what I got Okay, what did you get? I got an F, you can add me to

00:12:10--> 00:12:23

what happened. I became comfortable. So when everybody had to do it, you got all become comfortable. You got this you can do it in Sharla. Fair enough. We all got this.

00:12:24--> 00:13:12

The unknown is what grantors fear. When you lack knowledge, that's when you typically you're scared. The more educated you are, the less fearful you are from the world in general. But the more you know Allah, the more fearful the art to him. Subhanallah I remember one time I had for the first time ever, I went on a camp in Ireland. And they took me on a hike, beautiful place, Rochelle Tabata Kala, or near Dublin. So when I was taking this hike, and those who take hikes, they know some roads or paths are starting to get difficult. So I started to get into bit nervous first time my life is start getting steeper, okay. And I was like the guest speaker in this camp. And it got worse, it got

00:13:12--> 00:13:22

more difficult. I actually panicked. That I told the guys one question, what was my question? Similar to this? Did you guys ever take this path before?

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

That's my only question. Do you know people who went through this and they made it.

00:13:29--> 00:14:05

So the guy as things became very difficult, actually, this, by far is one of the top three moments in my life where I was about to lose my own life. Long story, but let's make it short. So while I was going through this, it was it got so hard in a way that itself became a one way that type of height is one way there's your climbing is not going to go down. It's almost impossible. At least for a beginner like myself. So then I told the brothers was this the first time? He said honestly, yeah, I'm like, Why you do this? You're a guest speaker. How am I you can see my tennis shoe. And I was angry. All my jokes are gone.

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

Right? I'm lucky on your wall. Every lecture I earn. I'm trying to remember all that had he was suffering. Suffering was terrible.

00:14:16--> 00:14:18

By hamdullah eventually, I can see him here.

00:14:19--> 00:14:28

Right. But you know, what really helped them motivated me is I was climbing and I was struggling. I sold something up there a sheep.

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

I'm looking at the sheep did it I can do it.

00:14:33--> 00:14:48

And then they the people from Ireland, the Irish if they're watching us, you know Allah forgive them. But Allah, Allah forgive them in sha Allah. After I was done with the cam, they gave me a book. And the cover they did not sign they said we're sorry. And always remember the sheep.

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

Many times in life, try to search for that sheep, the one who exceeded in that example, to believe that you can do it in Sharla as well and learn from their mistakes. They don't repeat it as well in the last panel.

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

Allah, you see how powerful there's much more to it but we have to proceed in sha Allah quotevalet como cm Chem ACQUITY, Valentina Kubla Khan. Why? Why was fasting obligated? La La comme Tatacoa? Very important, very critical. By far one of the most important points in the entire ayat Omer important, but this gives you the wisdom when someone asks you, Why do you guys fast? Yes. What do many people saying, because when we get hungry, we think of the poor and the middle of this fortune Correct. There's truth to that. But your number one answer to come from here is what Allah said while you're fasting. Why? Lala Contacta con, I want you please, you heard the word Taqwa many times

00:15:44--> 00:16:11

before right? God consciousness, being mindful of Allah. But I want you to pay even more attention in a way that when you leave these doors, if someone asks you what is taqwa you answer with confidence in sha Allah, you promised Inshallah, you will try the Allah Contacta con, this is the goal of cm. I want to go back a point then I will go back to this. Why were we created? What's the goal of our creation?

00:16:12--> 00:16:13

Further yesterday.

00:16:17--> 00:16:46

I sent Allah He basically he says the ayah in the Quran, Allah says I did not create the jinn and the human beings Jen is a different creature creation. I did not create the jinn or the human being except to worship. So what's the purpose of our creation? Is to worship so creation and arrow goal is worship. But do you know that there is the goal of all goals? Not they don't stand.

00:16:47--> 00:16:51

There is the goal of why we worship Allah.

00:16:53--> 00:17:22

So you thought or some of us thought the goal of our craziest worship Allah That's correct. But there's a goal to the worship of Allah. That you got to give me an verse brother, you can just make up stuff on that and you have a nice stage. You get the chance to say whatever you want. Give me an A give me a hadith. Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah revealed to him in the first call in the Quran. Yeah, let's test you guys out. What's the first need that yeah, you have the first one in the Quran? What is it? Go ahead.

00:17:24--> 00:17:35

Yeah, I sent out one of the first revelation to the Prophet. Yeah, one with death. But the first year you are in Surah Al Baqarah Chapter Two. The first all people I kind of give it to you.

00:17:37--> 00:17:39

Yeah, you didn't say all believers. I said. Yeah, people.

00:17:40--> 00:18:03

So yeah, you have nurse. Yeah, you have NAS Allah says, oh people, not believers. Yeah, you are NAS Allah, or Buddha or bekam. worship your Lord ready for this. It's coming. or Buddha or back home worship your Lord, the One who created you and created those before you. So you may

00:18:05--> 00:18:15

have Taqwa Nikita Takuan. So the goal of worshiping Allah is to attain. So Taqwa is the goal of all goals.

00:18:17--> 00:18:33

Colosse Taqwa is the goal of all goals. So Allah created us to worship Him. To have Taqwa this hour. Allah says, Thank you, brother. That critical. Please give us a couple of minutes tell us what Taqwa is. There's a lot of definitions.

00:18:35--> 00:18:54

One of them Taqwa comes from the word we call, which means protection. One more time very important, stuck with a goal of all goals. So be patient with me. duckula come from the word we're Korea, which means protection. Okay, so how was that relatable?

00:18:56--> 00:19:03

When there was COVID, and there's possibly still COVID What was your protection?

00:19:04--> 00:19:48

The mask, so that was your work higher. So attacking COVID means put on your mask. One more time, it ducktail COVID meaning put on your mask. A tequila is not a mask. It's the good deeds that you do and staying away from the bad deeds. That is the mask from jahannam. One more time. One more time. Okay, one more time. Ethical COVID have Taqwa about COVID mean poor a mask so that virus does not hit you. So the virus does not come to your body. It tequila the best of examples mean protect yourself from not the virus from Allah's punishment.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

Protect yourself from Allah's punishment. Okay, what's that protection, not a mask. It's doing the good deeds and staying away from the bad deeds. So the more good deeds that you do

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

The more haram you're away from the bigger than as the bigger the barrier the bigger the protection from Allah as punishment. So what does Allah say attack Allah haka

00:20:11--> 00:20:30

Misha haka to Katya Allah says Be conscious of Allah build the barrier between you and Allah as punishment the way Allah deserves Allah million barrier and billion masks a billion walls will not protect you from Allah's punishment. It will burn through all of them. You cannot work so hard.

00:20:31--> 00:20:35

So then Allah makes it easy for you and he says, for double Lucha

00:20:36--> 00:21:21

Mr. Patton that Allah does another verse where he says have Taqwa as much as you possibly can. May Allah increases in Dukkha say I mean so Taqwa is what Ramadan is all about Ramadan or fasting that's the your opportunity to maximize that protection. Remember the first example I mentioned that $10 million in two weeks? This is the opportunity that is coming, you build that protection, so Allah protect you from Johanna May Allah protect us era Bella Alameen. Let me give you one definition from Abu Hurayrah or the Allah and you want a definition from the Sahaba here is one and then came to the sahabi Abu Hurayrah. He says yeah, Buhari Ira met Taqwa what is Taqwa? And look how he answers. He

00:21:21--> 00:21:36

says he has the authority conda choke? Have you ever walked on a path? Let me just use the example for today's time is okay, I'm just gonna. He says do you take a path? Well, there's thorns, but in our time I will use Did you ever take a road that's potholes? They do that.

00:21:38--> 00:21:43

Have you ever taken a road that has potholes? He says none. Of course Michigan no he didn't say Michigan

00:21:44--> 00:22:09

right. So then the driver asks him okay when he saw a pothole, how did you behave? He said I tried to avoid it. I drove around it not to fall into the pothole and ruin my rim and my tire. And his case was a thorn. He said that's the one there's a haram there's a wrong don't go into the pothole taco and tequila

00:22:10--> 00:22:35

tequila okay, this is this is wrong I got a pass I gotta do somewhere else. I'm not support don't ever be in a place you're not supposed to be at never Book a vacation to our place and location or buy tickets to a place you don't want to die at that stock war. I don't want to take more chances. And hustle bustle Rahim Allah says some people stuck on became so much but was in balance that they are times with even avoid the Khaled

00:22:37--> 00:23:19

sometimes don't be extreme be understanding you have a family work together you don't live in the world by yourself but in general there's a small pothole it will not damage my tire. So how about I'm not taking chances. You see that? I got I got a raptor Ford Raptor shot 150 All the you know hooked up it's okay I'm not taking chances. May Allah protect us a little bit alanine, a video on real tick tock shady taco I tequila. Right? Hello all of us. We have to be God conscious in sha Allah.

00:23:19--> 00:23:25

that, yeah, Allah the higher Allah bring you. If you have the taco of Allah, one of the most important points step one.

00:23:27--> 00:24:09

Allah says, Woman yet tequila, ah, Allahu Maharaja, if you're stuck in a situation, but you're a man or a woman of taqwa, Allah will always find you an exit. You know what's so cool with this connection? Because usually when you're cornered and you're stuck, you start to justify things right? Well, I know this pothole is here, but you know I'm in a rush so I'm gonna go over the pothole, but you might really ruin the tire. Allah has the best of examples. If you're stuck in a situation. Many times you have options that are wrong, agreed. Many of us are desperate for something and the only way to get it in your eyes is through the Haram path. Agreed? Oh, I have

00:24:09--> 00:24:56

these desires. I have to fulfill them. Everybody's rejecting me. I got to do law. You fear Allah you'll always have an exit Romania tequila jello. Maharajah because God appreciate something in you. You avoided the pothole you avoided the Haram out of respect to God and as a reward to you I'll get you an exit that you've never thought about before. When you're a zoo come in Hi thriller.

May Allah Allah was to witness the sweetness of that verse say I mean, Lila contattare Khun Allah Taqwa is Allah, Allah to speak about Allah Contacta con, another reward. Allah says Allah says

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

only about 10 times on the Quran 10 different groups, one of them in

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

Allah you Hibou and Mata cane. Allah loves those who have Taqwa. May Allah make us of them. Do you know what it means when Allah loves you, and Allah loves you.

00:25:11--> 00:25:15

You have someone that loves you so much, that will hook her up in ways that you've never imagined.

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

I'll give you a simple one.

00:25:19--> 00:25:22

So my mom just went to go get a COVID test.

00:25:23--> 00:26:06

And the doctor offered or the Secretary said, $35, she has to cross back to Canada. So my mom, she said, Why 35 The next door says 25. My mom did right. But she's doing the right thing. And I want to see like, is your test any different? Is your I don't know the the what is it called? The Alton Dineen. The swab is like, I believe it, right, a swab is like different material. I won't sneeze after like, why 35 is a you know, because a stamp, you're crossing the borders, whatever. She's like, it doesn't make sense. But whatever. She has to make a point handler, right. So then that wonderful doctor, he comes in, and then he that does a swap. And he says who who's say Oh, magic,

00:26:06--> 00:26:18

and then he knows my brother in law. He's like, Oh, your brother in law is Hani No way I will charge you a lot. I loved what he says. I thought like you'll give lectures Mashallah. And then nothing. The law my brother in law has a bigger shot.

00:26:19--> 00:26:30

Right? May Allah bless him say I mean, is the guy your brother in law? Me? I'm not charging you? No, no way. So then we left and there's from 35 to zero Brother, what's the point?

00:26:31--> 00:26:47

This is an example, a human example of someone loving someone you're not paying me. I don't want to get paid. That's how much he loves that person. And that's a human example. There's many many more examples are bigger than that. Allah has the best examples when Allah loves you, you know what Allah said? He does.

00:26:48--> 00:27:02

What has happened when Allah loves you tell me a hadith. Tell me something. When Allah loves you what happens? It tests That's That's true. Another another one give me another Hadith. When Allah loves you he becomes the site which you see with

00:27:03--> 00:27:44

Allah is Hadith petitioners authentic. When Allah loves you, he becomes the hand which you hold things with. When Allah loves you, he becomes the legs which you walk with. When Allah loves you, He will never turn down a call that you make when Allah loves you. He helps you in every situation. Going to send our Lady yes now. I'll be the hearing which you hear with. What does that mean? Alo protect your ears from things you don't need to hear. Allah protect your eyes from seeing things you're not supposed to see. And if you did see it will not enter to your heart and corrupted Allah Akbar. May Allah Lovas This is the fruit of taqwa, just like in a way in a way, but not exactly like

00:27:44--> 00:28:27

a game. every pothole that you avoid, the more Taqwa you have, the more Allah loves you. So this is the life that we live in. Avoid the Haram do the good deeds. May Allah love you. Amenia rabbil aalameen Tight continue. La La Quinta Takuan. Allah says a yam and Matt do that. What does that mean? For a limited number of days? Once again, Allah showing you his mercy. This fasting, I'm obligating upon you is only required for a number of days, just a few days, it will not be all of your life, a yam and not do that. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah was to appreciate that how many times I asked you by Allah, how many times that you went through the month of fasting? And you're

00:28:27--> 00:28:46

like really the 10th of Ramadan? No way. 15th So Pamela, the 25th eighth, and you're shocked. Remember this Allah says a Yemen motto that it goes so quick, so fast. May Allah protect the CRO bulahdelah Nene. Then Allah displays more and more of His mercy in the next part.

00:28:48--> 00:29:34

feminine care I mean cummerbund, our other suffer very dear to me, I am in a hurry. Allah says yes, fasting is an obligation upon you. But if you were sick, or if you're traveling, then you can break your fast and make up for it in future days. Allahu Akbar. This is our deen. This is our religion and we're very proud of every part of it. Yes or No? Allah subhanho wa Taala shows you there is Rama there's ease there's understanding. Allah says in the Quran wema Jalla la confy Dini Min harbourage Allah said, I did not put anything listen. I did not put anything in the religion that is impossible for you to fulfill and you're capable. There's no way nothing I can't pray while I'm standing. You

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

can pray while you're sitting Shall I can't while I'm sitting while you're laying down. Allah did not put anything in the deen. That is impossible. If it's impossible for you, you'll always find a concession and so on. May Allah protect us era Bellami. So let Allah decide what's extreme and what's not extreme. Not a TED Talk. Not a TED Talk tells you and i What's extreme what's not, not

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

With a guy in a video, when he shows two images, he shows an image of a woman wearing hijab. And he shows another image of a woman wearing a bathing suit. And he puts his mind to be the judge, not Allah, his mind, his mind is his ALLAH. So he says to the crowd and the TED Talk, look at this hijab, which is covering your face and so on. And look at this wearing a bathing suit. Then he says, Can we not be somewhere in the middle? People People were like

00:30:31--> 00:31:11

can you be who says what's the middle? What? Catolica Jana cometan What's up ah, Allah tells you what's the middle. Having a beard is not extreme. Having a beard is the middle. Waking up for Federer is not extreme. Waking up for Federer is the middle you see that? Allah tells you what's in the middle and what's not the middle, not a TED talk one more time, because I watched that segment. It was so irritating, not just because of what he said, how people in a way fell for it as if he is the one that determines the heart and the bottle, the truth and the falsehood. So let's Allah decide so Allah system and CanAm income Maria, whoever is sick. So with up to what point and stick

00:31:13--> 00:31:18

right? Yeah, people ask that question like how bad like I have a headache, they break my fast.

00:31:19--> 00:32:06

You're the judge. You're the judge. And be sure to prepare an answer in front of Allah had he asked you why you broke your fast if you're able and comfortable to answer that to Allah one on one. Then proceed in sha Allah with Eman and hikma and this is advice. Similarly, I got from an IRS expert. Yes, Uncle Sam, the taxes people. So there was a guy used to work for them. And he was a Muslim brother is a halal he moved beyond that point now. So I told that brother teach me something about taxes. He says whatever you put on your taxes, whatever in the world that you put, be prepared that if they do an audit, you can respond. Beautiful. So whatever you put in your taxes, just make sure

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

if you get an autographed response to each and every single point that you have, and that's it, general and so on. So with sickness, deal breaker fast, Allah will judge you and be sincere with Allah subhanho wa taala. And be careful with what you say I'm sick or not. Do you guys not realize every Monday, I pay attention every Monday at 7am Your middle schooler says My throat hurts.

00:32:33--> 00:32:54

Subhanallah every Monday at 7am The throat hurts. I don't think I can go to school today. Why was it not Saturday at 7pm? So I've had What about Sunday? 11:59pm? Nada, because it's Monday. So Ramadan will come back on Thursday Rama Baba, look, I'm dehydrated. Look at my lips. Baba. Baba tequila.

00:32:55--> 00:33:27

Right? You got this Insha Allah, may Allah make it easy for all of you. Hello. But Allah mean, so Allah will be your ultimate judge. But of course, having a minor headache is understandable. Agreed. Being a little bit thirsty is understandable. Agreed. So all these things that come perhaps with fasting. But what about traveling? When it comes to traveling? Traveling is like a fact I'm traveling or not. But that too, there's a discussion, very deep discussion. What do we consider traveling? Well, I live in Dearborn. And Dearborn heights is traveling to me. Yeah, and the zip code is different.

00:33:28--> 00:33:38

Right now many people in Dearborn, by the way, traveling to them, genuine this honest, traveling to them is different than people who are living in Flint.

00:33:39--> 00:33:53

Some people in Flint, they came for this lecture to you imagine the biggest ship in the world and Flint, you're not going you bring them over? And the Dearborn right? Everybody comes by halal meat from us. Right we have

00:33:54--> 00:34:37

who are we to go to Hoover right? SubhanAllah. So to some people, for example, true story. New York residents when they go to New Jersey to them that suffer and why do I go to New Jersey. But New Jersey residents when they go to New York, that's an everyday commute for their job Subhan Allah so the Traveling is a deep discussion. I don't want to go too much into it. But I want to connect it with fasting ready. And in Sydney Malik was asked about fasting in Ramadan while traveling. Look what Anna said ready? He said safarnama Arasu the layers of Allah and he said and we did actually travel during Ramadan one time with a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fella me either saw him

00:34:37--> 00:34:56

and move through well, I'll move through I'll assign the one who chose to continue fasting. chose to continue fasting did not rebuke the people who broke the fast. You're not a man. Well, it's only a couple of hours that he didn't say that because it's your right you can break it because we're traveling lemmya Unless you're a tough guy flat.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

Right? That's why you got rejected

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

All

00:35:01--> 00:35:42

right, and then the one who broke their fast did not tell the people who wish to continue you guys are extremists. The Prophet said this Why don't you break your fast? They didn't know one would be the other. This is also harbor Radi Allahu Allah may Allah Allah was to respect that Amenia La Bella Alameen Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was asked about fasting while traveling. So he said, Yasser Allah is there any issue if I break my fast when I travel any issue, so he says he rocks so to mean Allah, it's a concession. It's a easy path Allah gave you if you wish to take it for Hassan and that's great, great that you would break your fast. Women have the any assume and if

00:35:42--> 00:35:53

you wish to continue fasting, there's not a problem. You can even see the encouragement to use whatever Allah has a concession for you. And I want to remind you this hadith, please, please remember,

00:35:55--> 00:36:01

the Sahaba said we were traveling with the prophets of Allah Allah wa salam ala Nabi SallAllahu, wasallam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:36:02--> 00:36:15

And some people broke their fast and others chose not to break their fast so far, so good. So the Sahaba says for Sakata Sun, Moon,

00:36:16--> 00:36:57

the ones who were fasting they got dehydrated and the traveling they gone I have a headache, right? Something Rukia or whatever is necessary. Again, let me just take a break there was struggling. Those who broke their fast they're the ones who were serving, cooking in the travel, setting up the tents, you see that? So the ones who broke their fast were the ones that had the energy so they're you know, fixing the dining table motherland putting up tents and all that stuff, cooking the food because they're traveling like the rest area. So what's the Hadith? Rasool Allah is Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said they have been moved to Rouen and Yama, villager those who broke their fast

00:36:57--> 00:37:37

they are the ones who got all the reward Allahu Akbar, right or got so much reward. So here you had to break your fast you're knocked out you struggling even one time Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you can tell these travel Allah and fasting a month even one time he encouraged them if you guys are suggested if you guys want to break your fast go ahead. There's a battle there's a jihad coming up, but was the day of the battle he says break your fast because that will strengthen you. So we understand our deen May Allah protect us era BL alanine, then Allah says vary the tone. What is it? That the tone mean? I am an author, then you can make up the days after Ramadan? When do you

00:37:37--> 00:38:21

have to make up the days when? That's one question and what's the second question? If I missed multiple days do they have to come in order that to make them up in order so I missed four days in a trip going to Europe came back when I make up for it I have to 1234 in a row two questions. In both there's flexibility Ishani you can make up the day you missed any time in sha Allah throughout the year, anytime that you want and it does not have to be an order. The Hadith that we share with you in sha Allah is the hadith of Ayesha or the Allah Juana. Isaiah says in an authentic hadith in Al Bukhari, I used to not make up the days I missed all the way until Siobhan

00:38:22--> 00:38:28

ation is Siobhan it's the month number eight what's month number nine

00:38:29--> 00:39:14

so she used to make up the days of Ramadan that she missed a few weeks before the next Ramadan That's how far she went Subhan Allah so if people want to for example, they struggle with fasting and they traveled in a genuine travel not makeup stuff. I got to go to Orlando right usually go through Ramadan, may Allah forgive us. And you kind of wait for the short days. It's okay. It's fine inshallah Sounds good. All of this from the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. So perhaps we may all have Taqwa. Now. There's a next part of this wonderful area. Allah says well, Alan Levine, UT Kuno Vidya to empower miskeen I was a little bit hesitant Do I go into depth? Do I tell you the

00:39:14--> 00:39:59

difference of opinion or not? But let me try in sha Allah and make it as simple as I possibly can. May Allah grant us success say I mean? So a little bit heavier than the usual but inshallah we'll tackle it nicely with wisdom ready? Well, Allah Deena ut who now so now I want to remind you, Allah says you have to fast right in the previous area. Then Allah subhanaw taala says but if you're traveling or you're sick, then make up for it. Fantastic. But then Allah says and for those Island, Medina Utako now there is a difference of opinion. In the five I at five is about fasting the month of Ramadan. There's two parts where there's a difference of opinion. If it was me

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

variegated or not luxurious way, abrogated in a way that Allah will send an area. But this area is no longer applicable. But Allah sends another area as like supersede the one before I'll give an example. Allah when he says about alcohol being haram, it did not come and say alcohol is haram. It didn't come like that it was in stages. I'll give you one stage. Before it was 100% Haram. Allah said do not come to Salah acaba Sato Ando suka Hatha that talent until you know, so do not come to La sala while you are drunk. That's how we started. It was not haram. Just make sure when you come to Salah you're not drunk. You see how it's like step by step. But then Allah revealed the verse,

00:40:51--> 00:41:09

that alcohol is wrong. Alcohol is filthy, so stay away from it. So that's when the done deal. But Allah kept to the first verse for us to read and now we understand and we appreciate Allah's mercy. Fair enough. So some scholars said, This verse is no longer applicable.

00:41:11--> 00:41:35

No longer applicable, some said it is applicable. So if it's not applicable, that means there's another verse we will tackle soon inshallah we'll discuss coming after that. Fair enough. So two opinions I'll share with you actually three to be specific. Number one, many scholars say, well, Allah levena, UT Kuno. For those who can fast for those who are capable of fasting,

00:41:36--> 00:41:38

but do not want to,

00:41:39--> 00:42:30

but do not want to, they can break their fast no punishment, but they have to make up by paying by paying or feeding a needy person for every day not fasted. Fair enough. How does that make sense? Because the ultimate they say when fasting was prescribed, there was an option to break it with no punishment. So it's not a complete YG of YG. Fair enough. That's what many of the scholars have said. Ceremonial. Aqua says this Sahaba Rhodiola. In al Bukhari, he says, lemma nessa to Allah Dena UT, Kuno, Vidya, tomtom or miskeen when this verse came kind of an odd, a new third wife, Teddy, whoever wants to break their fast they could have because Allah says and those who are able to fast

00:42:30--> 00:43:12

but don't want some people, some people said you know what? Yeah, I don't want to fast so they want to pay for a needy person. Fair enough. One more Hadith. To back up that first opinion. There's three first opinion, the second Hadith, Kung Fu Ramadan, this is Hadith in Sahih Muslim authentic narration. We were emblem our bond during the time of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Mencia, Assam woman Shafter it was completely open you want to fast this up this optional it was not something if you don't do you get punished. That's how it started. We thought of it after Debbie Tommy skin then used to pay for a PD person until the another AI came which I will touch on soon.

00:43:12--> 00:43:16

Okay, the I did not say it yet. Second Opinion,

00:43:17--> 00:43:50

even a Berthelot the Allahu Anhu. He says in the authentic narration, how the liar does not necessary not abrogated, this is still applicable to those who can only fast with extreme difficulty. The second opinion which is even at best, he says, extreme difficulty he limits it to two people. Elijah was a mirage Elijah Jews was shaped as KB only this is only applicable according to an ibis to the old men and old women who cannot fast. Fair enough. Third and last opinion

00:43:52--> 00:44:08

scholars they merged with even best said but the added to it more than the two categories. What were the two categories? elderly men and women so the scholars they said, no, no, if we will add more to that those with extreme difficulty.

00:44:09--> 00:44:23

Those with extreme difficulty, they can break their fast. They don't need to make it up right fit yet on top of miskeen and they can pay for a needy person per day the Demas

00:44:24--> 00:44:28

halaal drumroll who did these scholars include

00:44:29--> 00:44:30

pregnant woman

00:44:32--> 00:44:33

and women who breastfeed

00:44:34--> 00:44:41

and that's when we go into so much depth but I'll pause right here inshallah. So why did he share with us all three opinions to respect all three?

00:44:42--> 00:44:52

So if a woman who's breastfeeding, she follows the opinion that I don't have to because I'm pregnant. Okay, brother, I'm pregnant. You know what number kid? You know what kid numbers? This is eight.

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

And subhanAllah every Ramadan I'm pregnant. So you want me to make up for AIDS and Ramadan's that

00:45:00--> 00:45:45

say months. So they follow the opinion that I don't have to make up the days I missed. I will just pay for every day for defeat me skin a person in need. Fair enough. So we respect the opinion. Other scholars said lie. Oh, you chose to have a child. Different way, right? That's okay. How many months realistic how many Rama bonds? You were pregnant? I was pregnant. Ramadan. 2014 on Ramadan. 2016. That's 60 days I have to make up for brother 60 days, two months. How long do we live? Right? The kids are now older. And now you have the time. Maybe you have the ability. So why not? So there's difference of opinion. May Allah make it easy for all of you. I mean, there'll be plenty. So why the

00:45:45--> 00:46:30

lady in your corner who feeds on Tama miskeen. Then Allah says, Simon totowa Hiren. Whoever would like to work, volunteer and give more, give more, in what sense? Give more either in terms of money to the needy, because there's a specific amount you pay, you don't go pay a guy $100 miskeen. That's a lot of money for a meal. So you pay him for that needy person for the one day. If you want to increase the amount, go for it. Now, what's the amount? every locality has a specific amount. I cannot mention the amount in Dearborn, similar to people in London, UK. I cannot do it in Riyadh, Saudi Saudi Arabia, the amounts differ from one to seven you can also I don't want to just increase

00:46:30--> 00:46:36

the amount I want to pay for more needy people, whatever you want to do. Go for it. For men totowa halen for Hoover Hiren

00:46:37--> 00:46:47

highroller. Was that okay? That we mentioned that? Forgive me if you didn't understand that much. Probably from my end, may Allah protect us and forgive us Seattle. Bellami. Okay.

00:46:48--> 00:47:36

Next one. Tasuku Hiren lakum In Kuntum Tyler moon. Now this part, the people have the first opinion. What's the first opinion it was optional, too fast. They say C H Allah, Allah, Allah. Allah says, if you fast, it's better for you. This shows that was optional. So they use the ending of that verse to support their opinion that it was optional. But I want to go into a little bit depth because this is powerful. How beautiful is this? Salah one more time? Well, I'm Tasuku Hiren lecom. In quantum Tyler moon, Allah, Allah says, fasting is good for you only if you know, if Allah says it's good for you, I'm not gonna take no one else's word for it, assuming I'm healthy, but if a doctor tells you how

00:47:36--> 00:48:13

the shorter it's an evil thing for you, it will ruin your health. That's understandable. But in a general sense. If Allah says I don't love them, it's highly recommends good for you. And sometimes you go online, and I was trying to research some health benefits of fasting, and what happens sometimes you get articles that support it, it's great for your body. Very healthy, then you have other articles. It's bad for you. I don't know how Muslims to do it. You can't even drink water. This is inhumane. If this lasts for longer yourself, which it is and you actually the germs your body will expand. Is it good when it's not good? One of the best things that I heard, I'm not saying

00:48:13--> 00:48:31

it's the best. That's one of the best things I've heard about the health benefits is from a doctor who is not a Muslim about Ramadan specifically. And he says what I kind of shared with you right now. He said when you read articles about fasting that some say it's good, some say it's bad and you are confused.

00:48:32--> 00:49:15

It's very much because of what you eat after you break your fast and what you eat before you start your fast. Yeah, and he's saying your photo and your soul makes fasting good or bad for you. Allahu Akbar. Did you see that? And this was one of the best explanations so he says if you're eating unhealthy stuff at a farm unhealthy stuff number three MC chicken at the whole don't expect like you're gonna wake up no headache and like all healthy mashallah, what is this ladder mistake I could saw back when difficult CMS little very tough for you. That's one of the best I've read. So what you eat is what determines bad Allah subhanaw taala how you will feel throughout the day is that very

00:49:15--> 00:49:42

clear for all of us inshallah. So one of the things that I read very frequently that I know we have doctors in the field of nutrition and so on that one of the things that I read very frequently, what are we told avoided and Ramadan avoided Ramadan avoid and fasting, what type of foods that have high carbohydrates carbs, they say avoided. Imagine. Just imagine you start five some Moses.

00:49:44--> 00:49:50

Okay? And Azzam and OSHA, okay and a soda um Allah Allah.

00:49:51--> 00:49:59

May Allah be with you and reward you for what you're about to face because what's next is more difficult than what you fasted for eight hours

00:50:00--> 00:50:17

right and in taraweeh Forgive me about I just learned in Dearborn this doesn't exist in Windsor. Okay, we do it differently in Windsor and Canada. But when it first came to Dearborn and sorry if it's a bit gross yet but just to tell you what we suffer these are facts in taraweeh and the message here and the message I saw one guy in Salah it does this

00:50:20--> 00:50:51

look what is he doing? I never seen anything like that. And few seconds later on that oh my god, the guy was burping May Allah protect us. Right so so avoid doing this hamona Have Rama inshallah now just because of your body because of my body to ensure like for all our lungs and retain any less of Hannover to add, but may Allah bless them also people have sicknesses so they have to burn so that's understandable May Allah protect us era Bellami one Tasuku Hiren lakum in quantum Tyler Moon

00:50:53--> 00:51:31

health benefits remarkable I strongly encourage you to read articles that talked about the benefit and when you read it what do you keep in mind I'm eating what healthy keep this in mind the articles that say oh, it's bad for you to the most part. They're considering what food that you eat that is wrong. That's why it's not good for you. So by eat healthy, you'll be shocked at how little tired you may be. How little thirsty you may be. May Allah put Baraka in your health inaudible Alameen but how can I talk about good for your body, but not talk about good for your Acura yes or no? Good for the body will be healthy cleans up your body, but let us talk about how good it is for your akhira

00:51:31--> 00:51:50

fasting, fasting fasting? Rasool Allah is Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam AB OMA he asked him yet also Allah didn't need me I'm in Tunisia, Jana Euro. So tell me like this one great action. One great deed if I do it, I will go straight to Jenna.

00:51:51--> 00:52:41

Yes, you may guess the answer based on the topic. But I want you to know what he said after the answer. He said what he's saying. I like a song. You want a path to Jannah strong, powerful, fast, fast, ready for the addition? The inner hula is nothing is like fasting. He said nothing is like fasting. So much so that some scholars debate that imagine earlier Matt, PhD doctors in the field, forget not actual certificate, but olema they debate is fasting, the best act of worship in Islam. Allahu Akbar, isn't the best thing that you who says La ilaha illa. Allah can do, there's a debate. But in sha Allah and Allah knows best fasting is the second best act of worship in Islam. Number one

00:52:41--> 00:53:30

is Allah may Allah Myka steadfast upon salah. You see how fasting is? Look at fasting. Allah subhanho wa Taala says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, some Allah Allah wa sallam, he says, Kulu I am indeed me, Adam, you don't have we don't have any good deed that you do. It will never be one to one ratio, I do a good deed, I get paid 100 I do two good deeds, I get paid. 200 never works. Every good deed that you do is multiplied to what extent he says b Actually, I'm fairly happy let me at your death, every good deed that you do is times 10 to 700 and you work for an hour your paycheck how much you make an hour $20 But then you do one hour, the whole $20 Allah that never

00:53:30--> 00:53:54

is the case. To him, you work for one hour, he will pay you at least as if you work 10 hours. So your check minimum is $200 for an hour, up to 700 times Allah Akbar any $14,000 per hour. You want to get that job worked for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And much more than that. So then the what's the connection between this and fasting? No, ma'am Jay, I'm coming.

00:53:55--> 00:54:12

So Allah says the good deed is times 10 to 700. But then he says except for fasting. What? Except for fasting elhassan This calculation these numbers don't exist for it. To what extent Allah says fasting is for me and I'm the judge,

00:54:13--> 00:54:56

Yanni and we're talking beyond 700 and in this means the reward is too much for you to comprehend. Yanni the angels when they write they won't say that so he read Alif Lam Meem Elif is 10 good deeds Lambton good deeds mean 10 Good deeds Rena Quran they will simply say she fasted and my bad I don't know. Allah will judge because Allah will know your sincerity and accordance to your taqwa according to your truthfulness. Allah will reward you will enter sumo Hiren lecom In quantum tournament only if you know one last one Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say some Allah Allah wa sallam, he says, fasting imagine someone is in the grave. May Allah protect you all from the grave and edible

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

criado it's a fact it's a true thing about the deen

00:55:00--> 00:55:41

So Allah subhanho wa Taala told Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, some people be in the grave. And you can imagine some people will have to be punished in the grave May Allah protect us, but the person who deserves to be punished. Imagine, as the rule is about to be applied this man punish him, this woman punished her for one, two and three, all of a sudden, the embodiment of fasting comes fasting is intangible you can't touch fasting so but Allah will make it tangible and fasting will speak on your behalf yeah Allah please not hurt your Allah not him Why me not to Tama Shut up. I came and they didn't eat and didn't drink for your sake Allah please for me who speaks

00:55:41--> 00:56:07

00:56:42--> 00:57:14

Some people say it all on the Shabbat and I've I don't know Anyway, respect lemma. Not every difference of opinion is valid. The Islamic calendar does not coincide with the Gregorian calendar. Sometimes Ramadan comes in September. Sometimes Ramadan comes in January and sometimes Ramadan comes in April I sent thank him for us for trying May Allah bless him. accent so who knows 12 months in a row you ready? Yet?

00:57:22--> 00:57:32

accent I went to my fanny. Roger Chavan Ramadan Chawan. The Kedah that we're

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

00:57:37--> 00:57:48

to be I don't want to discredit what you did a great job on the topic we've added all the I mean can you imagine recapping over january february, march ever? December

00:57:50--> 00:58:14

Allah bless you. But this is something that we should be proud of less because many of us do not know Salah and why is it so important sister? I think he gave me one benefit and overhead should know the month and SME calendar the rule in short, Ashura egeria. Why 21 benefit? Anyone benefit we have to know it's not optional. Like I know my bad No, you have to know why.

00:58:15--> 00:58:23

Can you know when there's Ramadan? Right you need to know when is Ramadan as excellent and very get ready for this one. Are you ready?

00:58:24--> 00:58:25

I sent

00:58:26--> 00:58:34

your Zeca annual payment is not based on the first of May. It's based on the day on the history calendar.

00:58:36--> 00:59:23

So if we knew that and we ignored that Allah may hold us accountable. So you're Zeca you're one of the five pillars of paying yours the care is based on the Islamic calendar mission Gregorian calendar. So may Allah forgive us and protect us era but let me tell you, what is the meaning of Ramadan? Now we're pushing its way there's differences of opinion perhaps about this but I'll share with you one that was so cool ready for this? The meaning of Ramadan? It says Ramadan, and the word or rumba are related. I'll share with you a Ramu ba means intense heat. Intense what heat so Ramadan was called the Ramadan because your throat feels the intensity of the heat that you want. Water so

00:59:23--> 00:59:26

it's called Ramadan because it gets intense.

00:59:27--> 01:00:00

Yeah, water I'm thirsty. But the other Meaning Definition Yeah, Allah. Rumba means intensity that's unknown. But some say not because the throat is hurting. When a burning you want water. It's heat because the good deeds are burning the bad ones. How beautiful is that? Because the good deeds are destroying the bad deeds, erasing them, burning them down Subhanallah extinguishing them, may Allah extinguish all our sins and mutable Alameen Shahara

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

Mabon

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

shadow Ramadan Haku Ramadan Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says something about this month. That is so cool. He says I Omala to fear Ramadan Tajo Hijjah during Ramadan Ramadan grants you the reward as if you did Hajj

01:00:20--> 01:00:51

Allahu Akbar it doesn't mean it's a substitution yes Shiva Bennett Allah but you could just put in a real tick tock ha de la Milan, right get hired for $1,500 and Ramadan. You can do stuff like that. The reward is there but it's never a substitute Subhan Allah is Rama Rama Ganga takes about two hours. Hajj, it's about five days. You go for two hours in Ramadan. Allah will grant you the reward of hijab and we said that this was the reward of Hajj. Allah subhanaw taala but will he do go for it?

01:00:52--> 01:00:56

Just waving to me. I'm traveling. I said good.

01:00:58--> 01:01:42

Sent Allah wipes away all of your sins and you come out as a newborn baby in terms of your records may Allah grant us our own blind Ramadan I mean, and it's now easier than ever before because I'm sure you guys know that before he had to had a group you had to like get a whole like Visa send it to the embassy it's mature as a project. But now you have the tourist visa. I think like $150 or something you apply it within 24 hours 48 Max more than that your wanted okay. Okay, you get the visa you book your ticket Hi like all by yourself if you go from Chicago 624 $624 You go Ramadan Yeah, you come back done. Allah nothing do it is Mr. People like I will do it. I'll tell mama Baba

01:01:42--> 01:02:21

didn't die. You know when you go I encourage you to go with a group. That's my encouragement. Don't go by yourself. That's advice but do as you see best. So I'm gonna Mabon equals to hedge. So what does this tell you about a Mabon? What does it tell you? Because of the blessing of the time, every good deed and Allah knows best will be multiplied more than the usual your Quran will not be taken the way it is before or after Ramadan. Allah subhanho wa Taala told Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says mon sama Ramadan whoever fast the month of Ramadan but two conditions miss because mama told me that because it'll be embarrassing if I don't do it as an adult. Whoever fasted Mabon

01:02:21--> 01:03:00

under two conditions, who knows two conditions, Amen and what he saw but you have to remember that may Allah bless y'all, whoever first from Oban, amen, meaning belief that fasting is a Ramadan as a one of the pillars of Islam. Believing fasting is not a cultural thing. It's a religious thing. Amen. What the Saba, you're actually hoping for the reward. You're excited. I want to be rewarded if you have these two conditions. Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says the law for that matter, cut them in them by all of your sins are forgiven. May Allah apply it to all of you say I mean it's unbelievable. What month gives you the Ramadan? Sharrah Ramadan

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

after all of that, after all that forgiveness can I share with you something of fear can I do that? Can you not Inshallah, do your best to

01:03:12--> 01:03:50

do your best to understand the deen Inshallah, because the deen there's hope, and he has fear. So we have to share both to be balanced. As mentioned before, things are subjective. The sooner if someone is dying on their deathbed, you talk more about hopeless here. Hope the guy is about to meet Allah Hamas. And you can tell his heartbeats the doctors are saying it's very much over the doctors call the like, I encourage you there's a chance that this might be it. So you give them hope the guy's dying. So there's a balance and there's an approach subjectivity and then some other people who are careless

01:03:52--> 01:03:54

mark the religion you give him hope

01:03:55--> 01:04:04

he subjective you see you what's needed. Maybe they need fear Allah Allah Allah Adam, some people when do they drive better? Let's be honest. When do you like

01:04:05--> 01:04:06

when there's a cop?

01:04:07--> 01:04:12

It's the straight up you have no issues with that is anything wrong with what I said? There's a police police.

01:04:13--> 01:04:50

Right and the Quran was vicar Well, I know the Fila Han is Takala Lavinia Allah Tov, I'll never do it again. Right? May Allah protect us. So there's bliss, but if you're told your triple A insurance will be discounted by $10 by the end of the month if you don't cause stop sign, who cares? So hope didn't work with you? Encouragement didn't work with you. Reducing insurance didn't work with you, but having a contract with you. So I'm gonna let some of us so why this whole introduction because Allah subhanho wa Taala he did say all three of them, I forgive you for the worst mistake. But he also said she didn't have carbon I will punish him more than anyone in the world. So it's both this

01:04:50--> 01:04:59

is Allah Jalla Jalla Lo and you can never have hope until you have fear. So Allah What will you hope for if everything is fine? There's no hope it's guaranteed

01:05:00--> 01:05:16

I know for me to have hope I have to be terrified. So what's a terrifying moment? Rasul? Allah is Allah Allah said a made dua to Allah Allahu Akbar. Jibreel Allah is Allah make dua to Allah so the best angel and the best human being ever

01:05:18--> 01:05:35

prayed against an individual. So whoever has an ounce of intellect will do whatever it takes not to be that individual. So Allah Gibreel makes a dua Rasul Allah says Amin has done it's over Allah will accept what was a dog

01:05:36--> 01:06:25

Gee breed Ali salaam next door dua several narrations Rosina and for Rachel, may he be humiliated May he be ruined. The one who witnesses the entire month of Ramadan, summon salah, homina from your for Allah with this is the whole month of Ramadan doesn't care about it. And the whole month leaves and does not end up being forgiven. Look, you have to go out of your way not to be forgiven. The options to forgiveness, you will fast 30 days 29 days are forgiven. If for example you go to America and Ramadan is like had forgiven you pray the nights of Ramadan. Another Hadith you pray just the nights, few minutes. Allah forgives all of your sins. Allah even says on one date the last 10 Nights

01:06:25--> 01:06:51

one night Allah forgives all your sins. So the options are right and left and center is like I don't want to I don't want to do dodging like The Matrix. I'm in Lithia Hawaii, if you're not good night prayers, be good at fasting, stop cursing. You're not good at this stuff. Make sure the last 10 nights you work really hard. Do something about it Subhan Allah, so he says May he be humiliated, the one who witnesses the month of Ramadan and does not end up being forgiven.

01:06:52--> 01:07:02

And Gibreel makes a DUA and the Prophet says Amin Oh Allah accept Subhana Allah may Allah protect us era but Allah protect us that why Ramadan is so special.

01:07:04--> 01:07:05

Why is it so special?

01:07:07--> 01:07:13

Why it sounds nice Ramadan, there's a letter that most languages don't have. What's that letter?

01:07:14--> 01:07:16

bod? Yeah, but that's not why it's so special.

01:07:18--> 01:07:20

Chateau Ramadan.

01:07:21--> 01:07:27

A lady on the left in Quran what made Ramadan special is because Quran was revealed in that month.

01:07:29--> 01:08:16

What does it mean? If our relationship with the Quran in Ramadan is not any different than before Ramadan then we do not understand Ramadan. One more time. What made Ramadan special is the Quran. So the Quran of yours in Ramadan has to be different than before Ramadan and if it wasn't any better when you improvement then it's a sign that someone misunderstood what Ramadan is all about Ramadan and let the shadow Ramadan and lady on the Fenian Quran houden the nurse Quran is guidance to the people. I don't understand it. No, you have to be honest. Whether you anatomy and Houda there's a lot of verses that are clear cut, agreed. Some Ayat ABCD od Wonthaggi then very clear. Some if I

01:08:16--> 01:08:36

need to open up a book, ask a scholar, no problem with Farrakhan and the Quran is what helps you distinguish the right from the wrong and Quran. You know, what's so cool about Ramadan? Is that to the most part, the revelations that came to the prophets before us came during Ramadan. You guys ready for this?

01:08:38--> 01:08:39

Thank you.

01:08:40--> 01:08:41

Zack Kamila here

01:08:42--> 01:08:57

by Ibrahim Ali Salam he received revelation. What night of Ramadan? We have authentic narration here hasn't sound narration. Only let's have Ebrahim on the first night of Ramadan. Nice.

01:08:59--> 01:09:03

What about the Torah Torah, which Prophet received it?

01:09:04--> 01:09:24

Musa alayhis salam at Dora was revealed six days of Ramadan says Nice. As for L injeel. That was the book reveal to which profit is happening Miriam. And it was revealed on which night the 13th

01:09:27--> 01:09:45

Zaboo whose profit which rough as double the wood why attain the Buddha the Buddha prophet the wood received revelation in which night the family ash or holiday Ramadan after 18 days of Ramadan and the Quran was revealed in which night

01:09:47--> 01:09:59

Oh smart. Little cutter has a smart answer. May Allah bless him I sent him we cannot confirm 100% There's difference of opinion. May Allah protect us and grant us wisdom Yara balala mean so

01:10:00--> 01:10:17

She said laser cutter so we have to talk about laser cutter agreed. Ramadan mates was special because the Quran was revealed in Ramadan. Which night we did not know but can you imagine? You have Ramadan fasting, put in Quran mix it that night is unbelievable.

01:10:19--> 01:10:27

Agreed. No Ramadan by itself is Wow What about the exact night the Quran was revealed in Cairo meat and fish?

01:10:29--> 01:11:09

Is that night the worship of that night is better than the worshiping Allah for 1000 months better than worshiping Allah for 83 years. So Hamdulillah we have this nema. Some people were concerned. They were very concerned. There are people that love competition in a good and a good sense. No Holly salaam knew Hello Sam gave Dawa Noah gave our call people to God for how many years? The calling project now his lifespan. Just the project he handled that one How long 950 years 950 years I'm excited. This is our fourth year of this excited about Sinhala

01:11:10--> 01:11:29

no le Salaam 950 years now once a month like this miskeen 950 years Leyland wanna Hara night and day. Silently, one on ones he had one on ones No. And Jihad I had public sessions 950 years How can you compete with that generation?

01:11:31--> 01:11:57

You go to Jana and they are for those who Allah winter first level I live for 6375 24 Not at all. There's no way. There's no way. So now when you hear I can compete with them through one night a year. One night, more valuable than 83 years. So if you only witness 10 rubberband, just 10 that's all more than 800 years you're old.

01:11:58--> 01:12:42

But Old is gold. In terms of Huseynov yes or no? So, see, when I told you the beginning of the session $10 million. You get excited. You're happy for Allah's offering, we should be happy Subhanallah May Allah Allah was to witness that to say I mean, laser cutter, powerful May Allah Allah was to witness it and pray on that night because that one night, Shiva offers whoever fast 30 days or 29 days of Ramadan. With faith and hope and reward Allah forgives all their sins. I struggle sometimes I lose my temper. Whoever prays the nights of Ramadan authority broke your fast don't relax, right 30 Nights Swain night nights with hope and belief that tarawih Emmalyn is a reward from

01:12:42--> 01:12:47

Allah and I believe in it. Allah forgives all your sins while abroad. I work night shifts

01:12:48--> 01:13:30

by the heavy last headin shovel offers last last deal. Whoever stands one night, one night. One night one lowrider Cartman car, my latest car driver stands during the night of other with faith, you believe in it. This is the night one of the meanings which Allah decrees things for the next year. This is the night where the Malacca descend. This is the night where they're dry is accepted and unlike any day before, similar to our family of origin Allah knows best. This is the day I believe in it and I hope and the reward I believe in it. I'm excited. All your sins are forgiven the one night one night, isn't it not time for us to take vacation days? Isn't this the right time to

01:13:30--> 01:13:35

take our vacation days to utilize them as men as women and do our best to

01:13:36--> 01:13:58

some families did something very interesting. I heard of our family. This was actually yesterday. May Allah bless them. They were like busy buying stuff. And was like what do you what are you doing? I'm buying the eight gifts. He gifts. What a genius. rubberband did even start yet. Right? He just because I don't want to read

01:14:01--> 01:14:03

Yeah, he does. Yes. Our holiday.

01:14:05--> 01:14:17

So like why would you do that? Because I don't want to be busy on the 27th night on Amazon. And calling them it says shipping between 5pm and 10pm I want my shipping 299 back that's why I went through this I'm venting by the way.

01:14:19--> 01:14:47

Right? So the point being is it's passive or smart business. Let me go by the gifts Now early on in Ramadan because the last 10 Nights is not a joke. Rasool Allah is Allah Allahu Allah He was telling me know what was said about him in authentic hadith. Either the last hour when the last night start. What's the first night the 21st the first night of the 10 is the 21st Why the last 10 specifically because one of the last 10 is when laser cutter is we don't know exactly what

Layla and he stays up as much as he can during the night of dua. Onsala it's one night I'm not going to miss out Subhan Allah, may Allah protect us, Seattle, Bill alanine, how powerful How beautiful is that? There's so much to speak about the Quran and having that relationship with the Quran. Let me just share with you just one thing and Sharma Can I do that Mithila one thing Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says salAllahu alayhi wa sallam. He says there's one thing I will leave behind. If you hold tight to one thing I will leave behind. If your heart hold tight to that thing, lung to the loo you will never go astray. You will always be successful but hold tight. Your life has to be

01:15:40--> 01:16:08

held tight with that thing. What is he say? Kitab Allah, the book of Allah, the book of Allah so under that Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what does he say? Method will lady yes Quran. The example of the one that mentions Allah does vicar and the best remembrance is reading what helped me Quran he says that the example of the one who reads the Quran or does dhikr and the one who doesn't, is like the one who is alive and the one who's dead

01:16:09--> 01:16:26

international heartbeats everything blood pressures, fantastic. You check to the doctor that you're dead if there's no Quran in your life, and you're alive even if you're very sick if the Quran was part of your life may Allah make the Quran special to our lives me hon Alameen Ramadan Quran

01:16:28--> 01:17:05

then beautiful May Allah bless y'all just akmola heifer coming to Zachman Luckett for allowing me to prepare this content I've never ever understood the vs. The way I understand it today. So thank you so much alphabetic vehicle may Allah bless y'all. May Allah honor You. May Allah allow you to witness the Night of Qadr and stay stand up to the extent where Allah forgives all your sins era and grants you everything that you asked for. That is good for Yato but I mean just come on. Look at me Allah bless you. But I bet if he could, so then Allah subhanho wa Taala Oh Brother, did you go back to the verse from the past law? I want to now go back technical technical yes be patient.

01:17:06--> 01:17:35

Financial freedom income Shara failure some Allah says whoever witnesses the month of Ramadan, then they should fast is there clear the obligation while they were here? Whoever witnesses this month, let them fast. Anything sounds optional here? No. So the scholars who said it used to be optional. They said it was abrogated after this was revealed because Quran was not revealed at once

01:17:36--> 01:18:02

you guys get the inshallah Thurman share them in commission off and then Allah says a woman can ever read that whoever is sick or was traveling fast that mean I am and then you make up for the days ready for the question? Well, if I have cash, I will I will tell you to sell. I'll give it to you. The previous time we read the same sentence very similar, whoever is sick or traveling? Did we read that before? We read it before?

01:18:03--> 01:18:08

But what came after that in the first time? See it's in English.

01:18:11--> 01:18:15

accent the labor fee question Allah. Right. I'll show you, I'll show you.

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

So Allah says, hear the same thing, whoever is sick or is traveling and make up for it. After that two things came up. And those who can fast but choose not to, there's a different translation, choose not to just make up for it. But now when Allah reveals this verse, Shadow, Ramadan, that part is no longer there. So that's why the scholars said their rulings have changed and this is one of the two that we'll share tonight in sha Allah. Alright, so Allah says whoever witnesses the month of Ramadan is non negotiable as became an obligation. If you're sick or you're traveling, that room is still available, but it's no longer optional to break your fast if you're capable of fasting, but

01:18:58--> 01:19:08

you know what, Allah that took these words off, right? But guess what he added? Look at this. Look at this. Yeah, Allah. Allah how beautiful

01:19:10--> 01:19:11

How beautiful.

01:19:12--> 01:19:23

How beautiful is this? Is this not enough? Okay, English. Is this not enough English teachers is it's not enough. Allah was easy for you. Does Allah have to add this?

01:19:24--> 01:19:32

Because if I if Allah says I want things to be easy for you, what does it mean? I don't want things to be hard. But does he have to add this That's how much he loves you.

01:19:33--> 01:19:59

That's how much he wants to make it comfortable. You got this sama bond well you guys live in North America who the hours among the bar late. Allah once ease for you. So now we are grateful for watching the ruling and we are thankful that's no longer optional too fast. You see that? We're thankful to Allah made that watch. And Allah changed the ruling because it sounds like now tough, right? It used to be optional, voluntary too fast back in the day.

01:20:00--> 01:20:08

Now it's obligatory like I'm nervous No. Right after you told you it's an obligation he told you I want things to be easier for you that's why I changed it. Yeah Allah

01:20:09--> 01:20:25

beautiful. Yeah. You read the law because this is the Dean had that had the dean that this is the religion that we follow. Allah, everything Allah told you to do everything is for things to be easier for you everything. What does Allah say? law you can live for long enough and Allah.

01:20:26--> 01:21:03

Allah never tells you to do something beyond your capacity. If it was beyond your capacity then Allah will not hold you accountable if you don't do it. You see that now you can live for long enough St. Lucia. You cannot fast you're traveling Heartbreaker fast, but if you're capable, then know that you can do it Allahu Akbar, you read the law become a US Allah when things are easy to be for you. You know what also allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam see some Allah Allah wa sallam. He says regarding a vs similar to this, you need to let her become a use. When he sent people to Yemen, we have a lot of brothers and sisters from Yemen. Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say some

01:21:03--> 01:21:04

Allah Allah, Allah.

01:21:05--> 01:21:24

He says to the people who was a very famous habit, they went to Yemen, he you know how to know that. Look at the many common names and Yemenis, Yemeni brothers was the name, but we have a whole mission mission was you go to New York budget more because more ad was the companion that was assigned to go to Yemen right now.

01:21:27--> 01:21:36

Now, and there's also another Sahabi that was sent along with him. So while you're sharing this with us, because when Rasul Allah is some Allah has advised him to go, he said,

01:21:37--> 01:22:23

But Shirou your siru tell them the ease of this religion, when to know Pharaoh, don't let people run away from this religion. Know how to speak, know what to say, and when to say and how to say make things easy. Not sugarcoating the IATA there, but be clear Allahu Akbar. So this is the deen you read Allah become a nuestra wala you read to become a nurse. You are one example but no shirt or Mabon one one example follows you sir. Ready for that? Amazing, amazing. You guys will also say hamdulillah very sad hamdulillah after I'm done Shama can sit him down whenever you want. In the law, to jail was an ohmmeter Mahad d'etat de un Fusa her mallam Tamil out of the kalam translate

01:22:24--> 01:22:35

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah has overlooked Allah will not punish you for the thoughts that go through your mind are really bad.

01:22:36--> 01:22:47

And he has know exactly what is being said here. Sometimes we have thought that I would be love. Right Like man oh my God, I hope no one was able to see that. And some of us are crazy if you

01:22:48--> 01:23:26

protect us era. But this is not us. Sometimes. That's not us sometimes. Who is it? Fun? Sometimes shaytaan that puts it imagine you daydream of something. Or you think of something that's so haram, Allah punishes you for it, or lum sila, like why What do you think of brothers but mind your own business just like you? Right? We all have really weird thoughts and very bad thoughts sometimes. So Allah from his mercy, He will not punish you under two conditions. mallam Yetta Kellan de, you don't discuss it, let's say you thought of a bad word came your mind. Right? Very bad word. If you say it, you get held accountable.

01:23:27--> 01:23:39

If you think of a bad action, you do it you're held accountable. But if you kept it here, you don't say it. You don't do it alone the whole day accountable. Now you should say as hamdulillah hamdulillah yella Bismillah

We spoke about Ramadan, we spoke about Siyam.

01:26:22--> 01:26:36

We spoke about Ramadan, we spoke about cm. And there's an area that just like may not seem to connect. There's an idea that comes in the midst of all these acts of fasting Ramadan.

01:26:37--> 01:26:38

What's the ayah about

01:26:39--> 01:26:40

the Allah

01:33:50--> 01:33:56

whoever faster I'm okay.

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

Okay, ready?

01:34:03--> 01:34:18

At the time of Iftar you're about to break your fast whoever makes dua, Tao what and muster Assam men in the star Lateran your dog will never be rejected if you make dua around Iftar time

01:34:19--> 01:34:30

and you can mixed everything together her loss this is like this is it if there's something you're desperate for you got 29 days at the peak time you're about to break your thought do I have to do it before or after

01:34:32--> 01:34:52

it's flexible the news? It can be few minutes before it can you have a date and you do it right after it's okay a little bit before or a little bit after so around a star time. Fair enough. Make this dua and you need to remember when you make dua What should you say? Oh Allah bless brother magic, okay.

01:34:54--> 01:34:59

May Allah bless and protect you? Holla so do your best because why that moment is so powerful. What are the mistakes

01:35:00--> 01:35:39

said because the food is very much prepared. The minutes are away from Iftar. And with all of that you're holding tight to Allah Allah, Allah far and to make dua for him Allah and to make dua to Allah subhanho wa taala. So may Allah allow us to remember that you are a blessing. And may Allah forgive us for our shortcomings era. La, la la mia should in the last area. The last area for the last area. The last area has a lot of technical stuff in it. And obviously very spiritual and very practical, but I will show summarize it's Can you shall be patient with me Sharla Oh, hey, Leila Camilla to see him as you can see here. Allah says during the night of fasting, the night of

01:35:39--> 01:36:14

fasting, what does it mean the night of fasting, the night of fasting means the next day is the day of fasting. Okay, so during the nights of fasting After Maghrib and before Fajr it's permissible for men and women to have the intimate relationship, Hootenanny bathroom lakum your wives are clothing to you, and you are clothing back to them. Allah knows that you used to betray in a way that the command this element they said about this idea, initially ready for this very interesting stuff. Initially, you know, based on authentic narration,

01:36:15--> 01:36:18

focus, after Mildred you can eat so

01:36:20--> 01:36:55

if you sleep after melody, but before Fajr. And then you wake up let's say at 3am You're no longer allowed to eat, drink or have intimate relationship. So you're fasting starts the time you sleep Naja. He didn't know that. I didn't know that to authentic narration. But that's how it used to be. So this area, I remember I told you to if that were abrogated the second one. So I'll change that. And you will see. So they're fasting was from Madrid until when they sleep obviously of course they'll measure as well if they stayed up one time the authentic hadith, there was a Sahadi

01:36:56--> 01:37:08

measure of time King. He asked his wife this hate is loaded by the way. He asked his wife, is there any thought any food? She said law of thought and what happens today? Is there any food?

01:37:10--> 01:37:22

Any food? And then she says law? Well I can answer like so. But I will go and then I will get you some food when she went to get some food. And forgive me for that example as a bad example that

01:37:24--> 01:37:29

when she went to get some food and then she came back, what was her husband doing?

01:37:31--> 01:37:33

She said hi Burton lucky and EMC

01:37:35--> 01:38:19

had alebo minor disaster. Why? Because he was awake at Madrid. But he didn't eat anything and he slept. So even if he wakes up in 30 minutes, it's over. He so the Hadith continues. So then he woke up and he's shocked. I didn't eat anything. He stayed all through the day for me. I like that he fainted clearly all day for almost more than 24 hours. Then Allah sent this verse or hidden telecom. It became hard for you throughout the night. That's one of the meanings were Kulu was shabu Pattaya Tobago Lachman hypermobile, don't mail Keitel Eswatini Fajr. So Allah says Now we can eat until when until the sleep until the sleep lab this thing changed. You may eat and drink until you see the

01:38:19--> 01:38:24

light of dawn breaking the darkness of night. Let me tell you the exact translation bear with me.

01:38:25--> 01:38:46

Eat until you see a Hypo labia the white string from the word color string black. So the prophets Allah Allah says, Eat until you're able to distinguish between the white string and the black string. Hmm until it's clear for you. Now ready for this. This is all cool, authentic

01:38:48--> 01:38:50

minerals, treasure was not revealed yet.

01:38:51--> 01:38:57

The Quran was not revealed all at once. And somehow yet we're not revealed all that together even though one is

01:38:59--> 01:39:05

to authentic narrations I'll share with you one or two. That one is in the time. There is one Sahabi

01:39:06--> 01:39:18

who used to tie. So listen, you can eat and drink until you distinguish between the black rope and the white rope. I'll have the Hublin heighten

01:39:19--> 01:39:30

this Sahabi had a rope that was black and a rope that was white. And he tied it to his leg. So he would eat and look

01:39:32--> 01:39:47

and look why. Back in the day. There's no lights. So when it's night, it's dark. So when it's very dark and you have a white string and a black string, a white string and a black string in a dark room, can you tell the difference?

01:39:49--> 01:40:00

You barely This is almost impossible. And if there's no light at all, you barely have a candle. Can you see black and white? No, I can't distinguish. That's how he understood this verse, until I can see the black string from the white string

01:40:00--> 01:40:07

I'm gonna stop eating until then I'm going to continue eating and he says you may come in with soluble fiber and then the sunrise a little bit okay now can see.

01:40:09--> 01:40:44

So then they went to the prophets of Allah Sedna, and this was said, then Allah revealed Meenal Fejn to clarify, okay, so Mati Matsuyama, elated and fast all the way until the night clear until now that I've explained that winner tabash You know, who knows? Tomorrow for nothing masajid as I told you this the technical part, because there's a lot to talk about it calf was the it calf, seclusion in the masjid only for the worship of Allah. So Allah says, Do not be intimate with your spouses while you're meditating in the mosques. Even like how

01:40:45--> 01:41:07

it's okay this is anything I didn't know. I told myself I'm not gonna stand on stage. tell you to come on, brothers want to bash you don't know Intermatic even if in my side, it says brothers and sisters, and I don't know how does that make sense? If there is something outside of I don't know. I don't know. Allah says Allah says, back in the day, they used to put tents in the masjid. And this is a proof that a woman can do it calf

01:41:08--> 01:41:09

Sera.

01:41:10--> 01:41:53

Allah says do not approach your wives when Attica that means woman can do Attica with their husband, wife and husband. But while you do Attica and there's a tender seclusion, there's a screen. Don't be intimate, Allah will have to ration who know and Tamaki funa thin massage at the end. tilaka How do the lovely fella takanobu Ha. These are the limits Allah has placed everything that you heard from breaking the fast from Taqwa from dua, from Iftar. From everything that you said our limits, but did Allah say Don't cross the limits what Allah say, did Allah say don't cross? Allah says don't even come close. Don't come close for that acaba thosaigh. I know I know the Haram is here, but I'll

01:41:53--> 01:41:58

stand right here. Yeah, baby. Why? How many times you say that your kids I asked you by Allah, your kids are on the curb. So how

01:42:00--> 01:42:41

do I know not standing? Yeah, but why take chances? You say that your children? You too don't take chances don't get close. Allahu Akbar. He knows that the closer that you get, the more tempting it gets solida for that? Don't get close to it. Don't play games. And don't exaggerate. Those say omega is that 60308 to 610 la is 603 you have a fantastic soul three. Hamas it lovers. Those who just want to be safe I can still see some light. It's not about the light. It's more about the sun disc no longer being visible. So the time of magic comes don't think you're too righteous if you wait, wait another 30 minutes Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says when he says tilicho doodlewash These

01:42:41--> 01:42:59

Allah's limits. He says this OMA will be in higher this OMA will flourish this OMA will succeed ma Jennifer as long as you're hasty to breaking your fast when mother comes in those yellow Habibi Iftar time, five more minutes not instant.

01:43:00--> 01:43:37

I have a bottle of water in your room, have a date and go eat it and don't wait five minutes from the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim. You follow the Sunnah this almost succeed May Allah protect us and when I tell you about Ramadan whether Ramadan all about Ramadan is all about what is it all about? And this is the ending of the academic uh, you know low at Trinity law home, yet account so you may attain Taqwa. May Allah increase your taqwa. May Allah allow you to have that barrier between you and Allah punishment. May Allah allow you to avoid potholes dunya and akhira Yara Bill alameen and if you allow me Can I finish with one Hadith and one story and I'm done. You allow me

01:43:37--> 01:44:23

just one last one. One last one. I promise what rasool Allah is Allah Allahu Allah He was and this is the end I promise. In authentic narration. Paul have no obey the law or the Allah one will have not obeyed the law. He says there were two people that accepted Islam on the same day, I guess with me, Paul Hubner, Obaidullah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his friend. He said, there were two people that accepted Islam on the same day. Okay. He said, They were together, one of them died. And the other one died when the other one died when one year later. So they both accepted Islam the same day, same time, perhaps even same location, but one died one year after the other. Okay, what's

01:44:23--> 01:44:33

the story? Gonna have no Obaidullah he has a dream. He sleeps in his dream. He sees himself and he says who the two guys that died.

01:44:35--> 01:44:44

He says, an angel from Paradise told tell her or told the people so and so come over.

01:44:45--> 01:44:47

And who was the first one that was called?

01:44:49--> 01:44:50

Who was the first one that was called

01:44:52--> 01:44:55

the one who died a year before or the one who died a year after

01:44:56--> 01:44:59

the one who died a year after. So the later one who died

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

I was the first one to go to

01:45:03--> 01:45:03

Jana

01:45:05--> 01:45:20

and then the one who died before and it was in a battlefield now that occurred. The first one died a year before energize battlefield and he had a shot of Foreman Cobra unbelievable. And the second one died a year later, a regular death not in the battle.

01:45:21--> 01:45:29

Then the angel from Paradise said so and so come the one who died in jihad in the battle the year before he went in second.

01:45:30--> 01:45:33

So 10 100 Obaidullah, he says then I said, Don't worry about me.

01:45:34--> 01:45:59

He says law bad you're not your time. Why? Because that's how we're still alive. But how wakes up? He's concerned. He's He's disturbed in a negative way. But how? How can a Mujahid who find the battlefield gave up his life where Allah goes second after someone who died a regular death? So you're going to Rasul Allah is Allah Allah and he spoke to us harbor. He says, You know what, I had a dream.

01:46:00--> 01:46:05

So they went to the Prophet. He said, Yeah rasool Allah. There's someone who went to Jana

01:46:06--> 01:46:17

after the one who died a year later, a regular death the Mujahid the fighter, the soldier now why they're shocked people in this dunya they fight over who is the first one to get an iPhone, so

01:46:18--> 01:46:54

I'm serious. They were in lines I'm the first one to watch the new Star Wars Alia dick. Okay. And they do tend to Attica next to the AMC, may Allah protect us. Agreed. And we will take it serious I'm the first one who got this under you know, I got my mesh out of my PS five from China when they first made it the guy that hooked it up, and you take pride in it take photos, may Allah forgive us. These Sahaba Allah No, they don't care who got the iPhone first. They care about who goes to Jenna first. They don't have an Intel it doesn't matter as long as they get there. No, I care what how, what time I get there. I want to be the first one that goes in. I want you all to be the first ones

01:46:54--> 01:46:57

to go there. May Allah make us the first group say I mean, so they can

01:46:59--> 01:47:13

just enter and that's all what matters. That's not the goals of the believers. So tonight's concerned how is the Buddha head going after the one who died irregular death ready? Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and why are you shocked?

01:47:14--> 01:47:34

So what I mean mimma Tajo Boon Why is it a shock to you that the guy who died a year later a regular death goes to Jana before goes to Jenna first then the one who died in the battlefield city also Mujahid so Rasul Allah is Allah Islam asks the one who will live the year later.

01:47:36--> 01:47:37

Did he not pray more?

01:47:38--> 01:48:19

Yes. Did he not witness one more Ramadan extra than the other one? Yeah, Allah. Did he not witness one extra rubber but they both became Muslim same day. So the one who died later with this one extra Ramadan? He said yes, he said, they know Houma. karabiner Sana a lot. The difference in levels between the one who died a year later a regular death and the one who gave up his life a year before. It's like the difference between the heavens and the earth for extra Salah and one extra Ramadan. Allah Houma. bellisima Ramadan, may Allah Allah was with us the month of Ramadan, and may Allah forgive and have mercy to all those who passed before it. I mean, Robert Alameen thank you for

01:48:19--> 01:48:25
