La la la la vie de la sharika who wanna shadow no hamanaka hora sudo God. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

I want to talk to you today, inshallah, about

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

a time which is inshallah coming upon us and we hope and ask and pray to Allah subhanaw taala that he makes us witness to that time and also gives us the tofik and the ability to make the best of that time

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

and that time is the month of Ramadan.

00:00:40--> 00:01:23

Psychologists tell us that habit change takes 21 days, if you have a habit and you want to change that habit or if you do not have a particular habit and you would like to inculcate that habit, then they say that if you do that particular action for 21 days continuously, then that becomes a habit, then it becomes easy for you to do for example, if you like to wake up earlier in the morning than what you normally do. So, instead of waking up at early morning at 11 o'clock, you would like to wake up early morning at 10 o'clock, then if you do that for 21 days continuously, then inshallah you will start waking up early morning at 10 o'clock. And then similarly for you know earlier than

00:01:23--> 00:01:24

that.

00:01:26--> 00:01:42

We are about to Therefore, as I said, You are about to enter the annual habit change workshop, which Allah subhanaw taala sends us as His mercy every year to help us to cultivate the habits of the gender, the habits of people of the gender.

00:01:44--> 00:01:59

As we are all aware, there is so much emphasis on good conduct and good speech and avoiding wrong behavior. during fasting that Rasool Allah Allah told us that Allah subhanaw taala does not need you to abstain from food and abstain from

00:02:01--> 00:02:44

from from drink and water and abstain from relationships and so forth. If you are not going to change your behavior and bring it in line with what Allah subhanaw taala wishes, so the good behavior and Ramadan is as important as if not more than not eating and not drinking and so on. And that is why we have Ramadan, which is a special time to practice this ideal way and that ideal way is the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we practice the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salaam with the intention of making these behaviors and attitudes permanent for the rest of our lives. Because Ramadan is not about one month, Ramadan is about bringing about changes in

00:02:44--> 00:03:19

ourselves for the rest of our lives going forward from that Ramadan onwards. Allah subhanaw taala said about this blessed month of Ramadan, yeah, you have Lavina armano quotevalet como sia mahkamah kuchibhotla Latina mean colico la la quinta takuan Allah subhanaw taala said oh believe fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you that you may become almost upon people of taqwa. The first and most critical condition of being agenda tea or being a person of the agenda.

00:03:20--> 00:04:10

is to be a puppy is to be a person of taqwa. It is good to remind ourselves, that all the promises of Allah subhanaw taala mercy and reward are for the moon and the moon. There are no promises for merely the Muslim moon, Islam and becoming a Muslim is the boundary condition it is what separates you from the people of the fire. But once you enter, that is does the door Islam is a door once you enter then you have to make effort to get to a point where you become the become the the object of Allah subhanho wa Taala as rewards and Allah subhanaw taala promises. So we need to make some effort to become happy and remember whether or not I am a Mata Ki, I cannot proclaim it for myself. You

00:04:10--> 00:04:25

cannot proclaim it for me. And I cannot proclaim the fact that so and so is a mystery for somebody else. Only Allah subhanho wa Taala decides the level of taqwa which is what elevates the status of people with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:04:29--> 00:05:00

in Accra, Rama komenda Lucha at Kakuma, Tara said the most Akram the most the person who is most honorable with Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who is the most who has the most taqwa of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanaw taala also promised hidayah and guidance only to the people of taqwa where he said in his book, radical Gita volare Buffy who de Lille moutain Allah subhanaw taala said this book is a book in which there is no doubt and it has

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

hedaya it has guidance for the month takuan Allah subhanaw taala also said that he loves them with the pain. Allah subhanaw taala said in Surah Allah Moran Bala man OVA bi d what Taka for in the law how you have butene Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke about the fact that Allah Subhana Allah loves those who have Taqwa of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanaw taala promised Jenna to the moon again. Allah subhanaw taala said in lol Mata Ki Nam have had a co

worker worry about work

00:05:38--> 00:05:41

or liars morona fi Hello.

00:05:44--> 00:05:53

I'm Rebecca Otto and hey Saba in Surah Nava Allah subhanaw taala promised Jennifer Tomodachi. And he described the agenda and he described the

00:05:54--> 00:06:21

the beauty of the agenda he described what will happen in the agenda he described what we get in the agenda. He said that there will be no idle talk in the agenda and so on and all jezza mirrabooka on his Savalas rondalla said this is the reward from their rub, which Allah subhanaw taala promised Allah subhanaw taala encouraged us to race towards the agenda, and he said wasa do a llama karate Mira Boku wa Jonathan Otto ha

00:06:22--> 00:07:16

ha ha Sahaba to all our all that little pain, Allah subhanaw taala said race towards the forgiveness from Europe and for the agenda which is as wide as the heavens and the earth prepared for Al Mata hoon. And finally Allah subhanaw taala said, when I say finally this is not the last ayat II about Morocco and many of them last time in my particular quote by today, and finally Allah subhanaw taala was said about the Mata Ki joaquina Lila Xena takoma De Anza la boum Kahlo, hi Linda Dina Sanofi ha the dunya Hi, Santa, what adoro la sera de Waal anioma da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da how Rola home via Maya una casa de kya. Juicy la Motta tiene Allah subhanaw taala once again

00:07:16--> 00:08:04

mentioned the mocha cone and Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Allah azza wa jal mala eco GB, Salam O Allah como the whole Jana. Oh, the whole Janata Bhima quantum Tama loon Allah said and when it is said to those who are the Mata cone, what is it that your Rob has sent down, they will say, our rough sent down that which is good. For those who do good in this world there is good and the home of the hereafter will be better and excellent indeed will be the home of the Moto cone, as in which is the agenda which they will enter under which rivers flow they will have their in all that they wish. Thus Allah subhanho data rewards the Mata cone, those whose lives the angels take while they

00:08:04--> 00:08:53

are in a pious state in a state of taqwa saying to them Salah mana la Combe or the whole Jana enter the agenda because of the good which you used to do in the world. hallisey Allah describing how the last moments of empathy happen where the Bashara agenda is given to the modality by the angels themselves as they are extracting his soul and there are a couple of several several other is also in the Quran which talk about the the last moments of the month, in which also point to point to a similar thing where Allah subhanaw taala said Newsela Min lafora Rahim, the angels will come and they said this is the the this nozzle is means something which is a welcome. It's a taste of all the

00:08:53--> 00:09:19

good that is going to happen all that is going to happen afterwards. And this word Nosal is used and therefore Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that now so therefore, if there is so much of emphasis on being a Mata Ki and Allah subhanaw taala is sending us this month, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to decree for us that we live long enough to see this month and then we make the best use of this month in Sharla.

00:09:20--> 00:09:47

So if there is so much of emphasis on being a Mata Ki, and if this month is so important, then what are these habits of the people of Ghana that we need to inculcate. Now I have identified six of them and which I will talk to you briefly today. The first one is obedience, because obedience is the beginning of all goods. There is no goodness for someone who does not obey Allah subhanho wa Taala. It has to be very, very clear in our minds about what does matter. There are no

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

there's no doubt about this. So the first habit to be inculcated cultivated ingrained in ourselves is unquestioning obedience to the order

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:03--> 00:10:26

and that's where it begins. Without obedience we have only a rebellious knifes and there is no hope of ever becoming a Motoki Allah subhanho wa Taala praised the obedience of the Sahaba and Allah subhanaw taala said, I'm also Ruby moundsville la mirada behavoir me known colonna mana Rila he

00:10:27--> 00:10:28

he, he

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

learned over a cobra. Mira soli work although Samana Ana Ofra Nakata Bana ye Lake almasi, Allah subhanaw taala said, the this is what the Sahaba said Allah subhanaw taala said, the messenger believes and I mentioned to you the, the Hadees that relates to the nose, all of this ayah and I mentioned this to you before, so I'm not going to mention it here it's a beautiful Hadees it is, if you read the state of Nicosia, it is there in the in the industry itself. And and what what happened to and when these ayat were revealed and why desires were revealed and so on, we will not go into those details, but that is suffice to say that Allah subhanaw taala sent down these is as a

00:11:10--> 00:11:51

consequence of the action of the Sahaba when they accepted the Hakama Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Allah says the messenger sallallahu Sallam believes in what has been sent down to him from his lab, and so do the believers. The believers also believe in what was sent out. Each one believes in Allah in His angels, his books and messengers, and they say we make no distinction between one or another of his messengers, and they say we hear and we obey, we seek your forgiveness, our job, and to you is the return of all. Samira. wattana is the position of the Muslim we hear and we obey. Not we hear we question and then we obey what we feel like obeying and we leave

00:11:51--> 00:12:03

out what we do not feel like obeying. semana wattana semana de la la Tatianna Neva Samana upasana Tatianna Neva de semana Donna

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

sabaragamuwa de

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

la la cama

00:12:17--> 00:12:41

now, it's the right and glory wise, this whole instance on on obedience because it is the right and of the glory and majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala he should be obeyed without question. This is the haka. vasanta someone who is not obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala, who is deliberately disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala is doing well upon Allah subhanaw taala so Allah imagine and Allah tala Goldman azim Zalman whom

00:12:42--> 00:13:21

zoom on whom when a man is making grooveshark with Allah subhanaw taala is doing so on him on Allah valbona z now obviously our zoom does not affect Allah subhanaw taala but that does not mean that the zoom is just because it does not affect Allah does not mean it is it is acceptable, it is not acceptable. It is the worst in Nashik, Allah Volvo Nazim Allah subhanaw taala west of sins is disobedience of Allah Subhana Allah and so let us be very clear that the sign of Odia the sign of obeyed of worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala is to obey Allah subhanaw taala the sign of a Buddha of Islam is the such De Soto and that is the reason why the such that is haram to anyone other than

00:13:21--> 00:13:41

Allah subhanaw taala because that level of obedience is only for Allah subhanaw taala for everyone else you have you have every right to question but for the Muslim once one Muslim has entered Islam The only acceptable position for the Muslim is Savannah wattana Osama bin Laden Massillon, Ohio data is our return and we asked him for his, for Him to forgive us.

00:13:42--> 00:14:24

So the slave who is who does not obey the Abdu does not obey the rub is worthy of punishment. And obviously, we do not wish to be part of that we ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us. Now Ramadan comes to teach us that Allah subhanaw taala has to be obeyed whether or not his orders appeal to our reason, appeal to our logic, appeal to our desire, appeal to our intelligence or anything else, whether or not the order we understand it, we obeyed whether or not the order we like it, we obeyed whether or not the order makes sense to us, we obeyed. Because ask yourself this very simple question. What sense does it make that for 30 days you will not eat or drink anything? a grain of

00:14:24--> 00:14:46

rice will not go down your throat, a drop of water will not go down your throat? You will not have relations with your wife who is legal for you for 30 days from dawn to dusk. Does it make sense? How does it make sense? How does this affect Allah subhanaw taala? Who is Sabbath? Allah subhanho wa Taala who's running you will Hamid just because you don't eat food it affects Allah subhanaw taala Why do we do this?

00:14:48--> 00:14:52

Within courts? This is an order which is highly unreasonable. I mean, what is the reason for this order?

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

This order is highly reasonable because it reinforces the fact that obedience to Allah subhanaw taala is

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

only and only because that is the focus of Allah subhanaw taala if Allah subhanaw taala told us hang yourself upside down from the ceiling that would be the order of Allah and it we would have to do that if that was the order of Allah.

00:15:13--> 00:15:24

This is to reinforce the fact that is the reason why during Ramadan even what is halal has been made haram on us for a period of time. What about that which is haram in itself.

00:15:26--> 00:15:30

Think about this in Ramadan, what is halal normally what is

00:15:32--> 00:15:40

Allah said eat and drink what is what is being given to you what is halal for you Alhamdulillah if we eat and drink, what is Hala

00:15:41--> 00:16:21

in the proper manner without access and if we eat and drink that and we make sugar to Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala will make that eating and drinking into an action of Eva and he will actually reward us for this eating and drinking. But the same eating and drinking in Ramadan from dawn to dusk has been made haram on the Muslim he cannot eat and he cannot drink. Why is this order this order is only for one reason, which is to reinforce the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala is to be obeyed, irrespective of what the order is that Allah is to be obeyed, no matter whether the order makes sense or not. Allah subhanaw taala is to be obeyed. No matter whether we like to do that, or

00:16:21--> 00:16:31

we don't like to do that. No matter how much you might like to eat something you do not eat it because you're fasting. No matter how much you like to drink something no matter how thirsty you are, you do not drink

00:16:32--> 00:17:07

because you're fasting. Why? Because only obey Allah subhanaw taala. Now think about this and say that for 30 days we are going to obey Allah subhanaw taala unconditionally, then after the 30th day What are we going to do with regard to obedience to Allah subhanaw taala ask yourself this question because if you don't do that, after 30 days if you start going and doing things which are intrinsically Haram, Allah subhanaw taala made interest dealing dealings in interest haram Allah subhanaw taala made gambling haram Allah subhanaw taala made horse racing and betting on horses haram Allah subhanaw taala made alcohol haram Allah subhanaw taala made all the all the things which

00:17:07--> 00:17:20

are intrinsically bad and harmful in themselves haram if you are going to do those things after once Ramadan is over, then ask ourselves whether or not we should be put in the group of morphine because then what we are doing are the actions of the morality.

00:17:22--> 00:17:29

Because in Ramadan, we are saying Oh Allah we obey you unconditionally, and Outlander, we say all of you obey only when we feel like obeying you

00:17:31--> 00:17:49

think about this. So Allah subhanaw taala gave this so the first condition is to obey and therefore there is no such thing as a non practicing Muslim there is no NPM right they have they have got non practicing Christians and non practicing Jews and so on and so forth. And there's no such thing as a non practicing Muslim. He does not practice is not a Muslim period.

00:17:51--> 00:18:31

So 30 days first habit to inculcate is what? obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala 30 days we obey Allah subhanaw taala so that for the rest of our lives become completely and totally obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala second one attention to Iman salah and to spending in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that Allah is follow the motorhome and he mentioned three top qualities of the Buddha he and Allah subhanaw taala said Allah Vina umino Nabila, Ibiza UK, Mona salata, huami, Moroccan Hong Kong, who are the otaku, Allah said, These are the people who have who have belief in the vibe, these are the people who established the salah, and these are the

00:18:31--> 00:18:33

people who spend in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:18:34--> 00:18:43

How do you inculcate these three habits? Number one, you inculcate demand, right? by speaking about the right, that which you don't speak about disappears from your mind.

00:18:44--> 00:18:48

It becomes a memory and over time, it becomes a legend and over time it becomes

00:18:50--> 00:19:16

what you keep mentioning and talking about and reminding yourself with remains real for us. And therefore, how do you inculcate demand will live by speaking about the greatness and glory and majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala by speaking about the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala by speaking about his his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salatu salam and his teachings by speaking about the Jenna and Johanna and that is why Eros Allah sola sola Sallam said,

00:19:18--> 00:19:20

he said that Allah is Huck.

00:19:23--> 00:19:30

And he said that Jenna to Huck wanna rock while he aka hukuk wanna be you?

00:19:32--> 00:19:37

He said, Oh Allah meet your meeting with us, Huck. Your agenda is Huck. You are not is Huck.

00:19:39--> 00:19:45

You and Abby is Huck. And you are Huck. Allah subhanaw taala said Coleen hakomi radbeacon

00:19:46--> 00:19:50

in Sorrento kavala, the HAC The truth is Europe.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

So first way of cultivating this habit is to talk speak about the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala not only in Juma foodbuzz in your homes

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

conversation with your children. Ask yourself how many times in the last one week from last summer to this drama in your home? How many times did you speak about the greatness and glory and majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala to your own wife and children. Ask yourself how many times in the last one week has gone by? How many times in that week? Did you talk about the agenda one are in that last one week that went past asked yourself How many times did you remind yourself and your family about the importance of the Sunnah Muhammad Rasul Allah Salah. Remember, if you had done that you would have the man because I would have become stronger in your heart. And for every word you spoke,

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala would have rewarded rewarded you and one week worth of good deeds would have been in your account.

00:20:43--> 00:20:52

As these questions asked this question, we talk all kinds of nonsensical stuff which has absolutely no meaning it's either a complete waste or in some cases it is haram.

00:20:53--> 00:20:56

But we do not talk about the glory and majesty of Allah subhanaw taala.

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

Second way to cultivate second thing do

00:21:01--> 00:21:07

is over second one establishing of the Salah Alhamdulillah during Ramadan masajid are full,

00:21:09--> 00:21:26

you know, even fitter is a day of happiness for us. But while I give the massages of Allah subhanho wa Taala could speak, they would say it will fit there is a day of mourning, it is a day when the massages will cry to Allah subhanaw taala because the massages of the world empty on either fifth of

00:21:28--> 00:21:36

the masjid would cry to Allah subhanaw taala and say Allah nclr this is this day is not a day of happiness for me. This is a day of sadness for me

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

through massage empty

00:21:43--> 00:21:44

in Ramadan Majid full

00:21:46--> 00:21:49

people who do not even pray for of Salah will go away

00:21:51--> 00:22:00

and hamdulillah very good. Please do that. But is Salah only for other What about the rest of the year? What about what should we do with a massage for the rest of the year.

00:22:03--> 00:22:30

establishment of Salah 30 days we pray in the masjid make that into a habit for the rest of your life. No Salah of yours must be prayed outside the muscles always always always try to pray every Salah in the module. All obviously pray every Salah is I don't even have to say that but try to play every sermon in the masjid or at least one Salah per day to Salah to Salawat per day in the masjid keep the masjid Abbott's do not make massages we run

00:22:32--> 00:22:42

third issue spending in the path of Allah subhanaw taala so Allah we have our spending a shaitan based it is not Allah best. You know why I say that? Because we spend only when the shaitan is change

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

you are spending is based on Python.

00:22:48--> 00:22:50

Java is to save Allah Allah give him

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

your agenda and Phil is our winner.

00:22:55--> 00:22:57

He used to say make your gem musalman

00:23:01--> 00:23:06

cheap he's a make your pocket muscle man he said your your pockets are not Muslim is a pocket cover.

00:23:08--> 00:23:08

backer

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

charity is only for another.

00:23:16--> 00:23:56

Once again habit to inculcate it for the rest of our lives. Let us make sure that for the rest of our lives, we continue to spend in the path of Allah subhanaw taala because Ramadan has come to inculcate those habits. Number three, attention to seeking knowledge and to thilawa to Quran. Allah subhanaw taala said Shahada Ramadan Allah Yun de la v Hill for an Hoda linas eva ina Tim Min alhuda wall for con Allah subhanaw taala said the month of Ramadan is the month in which was revealed the Quran which is a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and for the criterion of distinguishing between right and wrong for fun.

00:23:57--> 00:24:37

And hamdulillah in the in the month of Ramadan we read more current than we normally read. We read some Quran ourselves, we listen to Quran in taraweeh. But remember, listen to the Quran with the other of the Quran. forcing the Imam or trying to force the Imam to recite fast is to go against the Quran is to go against the other of the Quran. The Quran is to be recited in a particular manner with keeping the soul of Tajweed in mind to force the harvest and May Allah Allah bless our roofers, so Allah they are there this is the this is the tragedy of this upside down oma we have the Imam is subservient to the master in

00:24:39--> 00:24:51

Lahore La quwata illa Allah I say to the man if you do not have the guts to stand on this on this member, and if you do not have the guts to stand on this masala of nobody Salallahu alaihe salam and to tell people what is right and wrong, get out from here Leave this place.

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

You are unfit to stand here. If you are afraid of the people.

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

It is not the job of the man to follow what the moodiness

00:25:01--> 00:25:07

November pass on a drama Korea Nana takamasa lopesan Coronavirus Entertainment Coronavirus vote lenica

00:25:08--> 00:25:16

Galaga DNC Kanika lopesan A Parma, organic aloe vera Nicaragua. Nobody's happy Isaac,

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

Majid committee

00:25:22--> 00:25:57

say what is the truth without fear? And let those people who try to force the force the moms to do what is against the Quran and Sunnah, let them fear Allah subhanaw taala because that for him and for the sake of his belly, he listens to you, he knows he is doing wrong, but he listens to you because he is afraid of you more than he's afraid Allah, but that that Guna and that sin will be on your heads if you don't watch out. Please don't do that. Please make sure that you ensure that you speak only what is right and you do not say what is not correct.

00:25:59--> 00:26:19

And to recite the Quran too fast, and to try to finish the Quran, Shabana hamartomas, Allah ramka all of these things of trying to recite the whole Quran in one writes, or trying to recite the Quran in you know, finish the Quran in five days and four days and whatnot. All of this is against the other of the Quran. All of this is prohibited

00:26:21--> 00:26:22

please do not do that.

00:26:23--> 00:26:47

Lee come for taraweeh listen to taraweeh enjoy the recitation of the Quran. be big, no matter how slow the half is, resides, believe me, it makes only a matter of 15 to 20 minutes and that 15 to 20 minutes you will cry tears of blood on the day of of, of judgment. If you realize what is the value of that 20 minutes of standing before Allah subhanaw taala

00:26:49--> 00:27:14

you want to finish it fast, finish fast and go home I don't want to stand before Allah subhanaw taala I don't want the knower of Allah subhanaw taala I don't want the nose all of the Malacca I don't want the hassle of Allah subhanho wa Taala I don't want to speak to Allah subhanaw taala I don't want Allah subhanaw taala respond to me, let me get out of here. In Allah when Allah Allah, if that is your attitude, my sincere and serious advice to you standing here I'm saying do not come for therapy

00:27:15--> 00:27:16

is not for

00:27:17--> 00:27:25

pressure and go to sleep in the house you're better you're better off rather than coming into massages and making fitrah because the Imam is reciting slowly.

00:27:28--> 00:27:32

It is the job of the Imam to recite the Quran according to the adverb of the Quran

every in every conceivable situation, the first thought in the mind is Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the this is the essence of tawhid or Buddha that any issue in our lives. The first thing we think about is Allah subhanho wa Taala. If I have a simple headache, do I ask yourself the test in a minute minute you have a headache? What is the first thought in your mind?

00:32:26--> 00:32:28

the suburb is to be used.

00:32:29--> 00:32:36

We do not rely on the suburb we do not say I became well because of this thing I became well because it is the agent of Allah subhanaw taala

00:32:39--> 00:32:43

number five attention to personal conduct that whoa whoa whoa a bad

00:32:44--> 00:32:49

my brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned again many Ayat of the Quran many ad is

00:32:51--> 00:33:16

in Juma I tried to keep it all shots because we don't have too much time. But in Ramadan What do we do we protect our eyes we protect our tongue we protect our ears, we do not listen to haram we do not look at her and we do not speak her arm, we do not curse we do not shout we do not we are not angry, when we get angry we swallow our anger. If somebody is angry with us, we say and as I am I am fasting I will not argue with you I will not be I will not fight with you. We do all of these things.

00:33:20--> 00:33:47

What about after Ramadan? 30 days of abstaining from loose talk 30 days of abstaining from Viva 30 days of abstaining from cursing 30 days of abstaining from from a useless talk 30 days of abstaining from not watching her on 30 days of abstaining from not listening to her and these must become ingrained habits on the 31st day we do not do the first thing we do is switch on the television channel no

00:33:49--> 00:33:51

30 days now it's a habit

00:33:53--> 00:34:01

and Alhamdulillah it's a good habit and Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in Surah Surah Allah subhanaw taala said in number menorah watan for us

akula Murphy, he may turn sahkari, tomo wacaco la in law Hata wabo Rahim Allah subhanaw taala mentioned Allah so Allah we must make the surah his of this one because the surah is the is the essence of the law.

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

Bismillah

00:35:01--> 00:35:13

Allahu wa said the believers are nothing but brothers in Islam. So make reconciliation if there is a difference between them reconcile the difference as they are by no, make reconcile their differences.

00:35:14--> 00:35:33

And then Allah says and fear Allah so that you may receive mercy or you believe, let not a group of you laugh at another group. And let because that other group might be better than the former might be better than you. And let not the women laugh at other women because other women may be better than them, and do not disable one another.

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

Do not insult one another.

00:35:38--> 00:35:40

And do not use bad nicknames.

00:35:42--> 00:35:48

We use all kinds of nicknames I don't want to stand here and I can think of many typical Hyderabadi nicknames we give to each other.

00:35:50--> 00:36:27

Allah subhanaw taala says, Do not use these nicknames. You are not giving these names for honor. You're giving us names to insult somebody, do not do that. Unless and how bad is it? to insult one's brother after having faith? How bad is it that you have evolved and you still curse and use bad language? And whosoever does not repent, then such are those on the moon? And then Allah subhanaw taala said oh believe avoid suspicion indeed suspicion is sin indeed much devoid much suspicion. Indeed some suspicions are sin and do not spy on one another and do not back by one another. Do not may Reba Would you like to eat the food one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You

00:36:27--> 00:36:56

would hate it even the example for curry tomo Karnataka potty SMK Allah says you hate to listen to this you hate you hate to eat the flesh of your dead brother. Similarly hate backbiting and fear Allah Verily, Allah is the one who accepts repentance and is most merciful. There are many major matters of hobo Calabar which are also mentioned and which we should talk about. I'm not going into all of that because of want of time, but definitely these matters in this world.

00:36:57--> 00:37:07

From the ayah from 10 to 12. Three is talk about some of the most common things that we do our entire social life is based on Riba May Allah protect us.

00:37:08--> 00:37:25

What is Reba gaber is to say something factual about somebody which is uncomplimentary to that person, please understand this. If it is actually true, and you say it, but it is uncomplimentary, that is,

00:37:26--> 00:37:32

if you are saying something which is not true, that is even worse, because that is bottom that is you are you are you are slandering somebody

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

and what is the example of

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

the best example and this is the this is the the the epitome of good behavior.

00:37:44--> 00:37:59

Say the eyeshadow della Juana said to Ravi salatu salam about one of his other wives. And I think it was about say that Tina sadara de la she said that she's sort of you know, jokingly, she said that she is a bit heavy.

00:38:01--> 00:38:16

She says she's a bit fat she says she's a bit heavy, because Elena was also much older Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said Ayesha, if this word of yours were taken and put into the ocean, it would make the water of all the oceans bitter like poison

00:38:19--> 00:38:59

for saying what for actually saying was sadara delana was she not have she was fine that was that that was a fact but because she said it in a particular way which is like poking fun at somebody who also loves Allah Salim said this is Reba and these are this is the essence of this is what rebuys if you say about something else and may elaborate it is what do we do? We go to weddings. And then we come back and we make Tafseer about how this one looked and how that one looked over and a cutie syrup degree to cupcake is a whiskey is a rocky tempura Degrassi I was given a like Amanda chatango has done a Gaga photo album like me Kappa I'm sorry all my Arab friends sorry, we'll come back to

00:38:59--> 00:39:03

you in English we go to these weddings are you are you not don't do this only videos so you don't have to listen.

00:39:05--> 00:39:25

We go to the weddings and we make all these comments about about women's jewelry and how bad the jewelry looks and how bad she was looking and so on and so on. Then the shaitan brings the photo albums right so now we look at the album and each photograph is major capture on the photograph. Oh look at that. Am I you know what I didn't even see a like this. Oh my god, she's like this. She was like looking like that on that day in

00:39:28--> 00:39:46

the biggest tragedy about rebuys that will Reba our good deeds go to the person about whom we are saying these bad things. Yes. Now think about this. Who do we say bad things about, about people we dislike now. How intelligent is it to give you a good deed somebody who hates

00:39:47--> 00:39:55

that is Imam Bukhari Alanna Rahmatullah said, If I had to make a deal, I would make a buck off my mother. Because I say at least my good deeds will go to my mother.

00:39:58--> 00:40:00

how intelligent is it to give you

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

Good deeds to somebody you don't even like in the first place.

00:40:04--> 00:40:44

Please, these are all bad habits. Let us get out of them. Ramadan comes for that purpose Alhamdulillah because it is Ramadan we do we don't do these things in the 30 days, make sure we never do them for the rest of our lives. Last habit to inculcate is an attention on reflection and self correction finally in Ramadan, right through the month, but especially in the last 10 days Alhamdulillah for those who are lost, perhaps Allah gives the trophy to work ethic off in the massages of Allah, we spent 10 days in solitude, in silence in reflecting in taking our own hisab introspection, let us make the best of aitikaf the aitikaf is not a place to hang out a golf is not

00:40:44--> 00:41:02

a place to join with all your friends and find out which buses are going to I will go there in the rely when I go and find out which buses all the ones you hate are going to then go to that machine because it'd be easier for you to keep silent, because you don't want to talk to them anyway. So you can go and sit there and you can use your knifes a little bit try to be nice to the people who don't like Alhamdulillah maybe that's what we should do here.

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

Please do not make a gaffe into a social, social, you know, networking opportunity. ethica was not a place to hang out. ethica was not a place to eat all kinds of great food and more food and more food is not a place to laze around and do nothing and then talk all kinds of stuff is known as a calf is meant for silence for reflection. If we speak we speak only about the glory and majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala if we speak we only speak about the foreigner, Sunnah and so forth. We do not do anything other than that we worship we read or are we and if we if we, if we don't have anything else to do we make sicker or we go to sleep, we sleep less, we eat less we stand in the night in the

00:41:41--> 00:42:22

worship of Allah subhanaw taala let us make the best of that opportunity once again, why to inculcate this habit of self reflection, introspection, self correction, because we want to be, we want to make sure that when the time comes, that we open our eyes before our eyes are open for us by multiple modes. 21 days as I told you, it takes to bring about habit change. Allah subhanaw taala has given us a week more 30 days. So how live in 30 days we cannot change a habit, then we are in serious trouble. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it easy for us to bring about a habit change to make to take us to this Ramadan to grant us this Ramadan to make to give us the opportunity to make

00:42:22--> 00:43:01

the best of Ramadan and to completely and totally transform and change our lives and make them completely and totally obedient to himself from this Ramadan going forward till the end of our days. And my brothers and sisters do not fool yourself the end of our days is far quicker and much earlier than we expect. So holla we have seen incident after incident after incident where people who we did not even imagine that so and so would not be alive today is no longer alive. May Allah subhanaw taala grant them all the best in the agenda. May Allah forgive all their sins, but the fact remains that those people did not expect to die but they died neither do we expect we also don't expect to

00:43:01--> 00:43:20

die but we will also die. So let us make sure that before that time comes that we correct ourselves and we live our lives in such a way that when the time comes to stand before Allah subhanaw taala we will stand in the shade of his forgiveness for some Allah Allah Nabeel Karim while he was happy he may be Rama, Rama Rahimi, what hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen
