This Allah is a gift,

00:02:07--> 00:02:10

the value of which depends on what we choose to do with it.

00:02:12--> 00:02:16

It is up to us to make it as valuable as we wish.

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

So as a result, I gave a football

00:02:21--> 00:02:25

on the Friday which in that year was the last day of Ramadan.

00:02:27--> 00:02:30

On the authority of server and Farsi, Radha Alonso.

00:02:31--> 00:02:41

He said that also Allah is a resident zero people, the month of Allah, all that has come with its mercies blessings and forgiveness.

00:02:43--> 00:03:01

Allah Allah has decreed this month, the best of all months. The days of this month are the best among the days and the nights are the best on the nights and the hours during Ramadan are the best among the hours.

00:03:02--> 00:03:52

This is the month in which you have been invited by him Gela gelato to fast and to pray. Allah subhana wa Tada has honored you in it. In every breath you take is a reward from Allah subhanho data. Your sleep is worshipped. Your good deeds are accepted and your guides are answered. Therefore, you must call upon your rub in all earnestness with hearts free from sin and evil and pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala may help you to keep the fasts and recite the Quran. Indeed, miserable is the one who is deprived of ALLAH SubhanA waters forgiveness in this great month,

00:03:53--> 00:04:24

while fasting, remember the hunger and thirst of the Day of Judgment, give charity to the poor, and needy. Respect your elders, have sympathy for your youngsters, and be kind towards your relatives and kinsmen. God your tongue against unworthy words, and your eyes from scenes that are not worth seeing which are forbidden, and your years from sounds that should not be heard.

00:04:26--> 00:04:34

Be kind to orphans, so that if your children may become orphans, they will also be treated with kindness.

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

Repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala for your sins and make dua with raised hands at the time of Salah as these are the best times during which ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada looks at his slaves with mercy. Allah subhana wa Tada answers, if they make derive the supplicate your response. If they call you grind

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

times, if he is asked, and he accepts, if they entreat

00:05:06--> 00:05:12

more people, you have made your conscience, the slave of your desires.

00:05:14--> 00:06:06

Make it free by invoking ALLAH SubhanA wa Alterra for forgiveness, you're back may break from the heavy load of your sins. So make such that. So prostrate yourself before Allah subhanaw taala for long periods and make this load lighter, understand fully that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has promised by his honor and majesty, that people who establish Salah and such the will be guarded from Johanna on the day of judgment we ask Allah to because among the people, if anyone amongst you arranges for Iftar for any believer, ALLAH SubhanA wa that I will reward him as if he had freed slave and Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive his sins for every single person.

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

As Avi said, Yasser allah sallallahu sallam, but not all of us have the means to do this. So

00:06:16--> 00:06:26

keep yourself away from Jana, even if it is by half a ditch, or even some water if you have nothing else,

00:06:27--> 00:07:08

or people anyone who during this month cultivates good manners. We'll walk over the spirit on the day when feet will tend to slip. For anyone who during this month eases the workload of His servants. Allah subhanho wa Taala will make easy his accounting and for anyone who doesn't hurt others during this month, Allah subhanaw taala will safeguard him from his wrath on the Day of Judgment. Anyone respects and treats and often with kindness during this month, Allah subhanho data shall look at him with kindness on that day.

00:07:10--> 00:07:39

Anyone who treats his kinsmen his relatives well during this month, Allah subhanaw taala will bestow his mercy on him on that day, while anyone who mistreats his relatives his kinsmen during this month, ALLAH SubhanA wa Alterra will keep away, keep that person away from his mercy. Whoever prays the fourth prayers Salah during this month, Allah will save him from Johanna and whoever

00:07:40--> 00:08:34

observes his obligations fulfills his obligations during this month. His reward will be 70 times the reward among other months. Whoever repeatedly made dua, and as Salat and Sen Salah and Sullivan rasa salah. He said whoever repeatedly invokes Allah's blessings on me, Allah subhanaw taala will keep his scale of good deeds heavy, while the scales of others will tend to lightness. Whoever resides during this month and one eye of the Quran will get the reward or resenting the for for an in other months old people the gates of Jannah remain open during this month. Rate your agenda general know that they may not be close for you. While the gates of Jahannam are close, pray to your rub that

00:08:34--> 00:08:35

they never open for you.

00:08:37--> 00:09:11

Shaitan has been chained invoke your rub Gela Gerardo not to let him dominate you. Or if you've ever thought about the onset, I asked Ya Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam what are the best deeds during this month? He replied, Oh I will as the best of deeds during this month is to be far away from whatever Allah has forbidden. And this is in my heavy since Allah subhanaw taala has chosen to bless us let us remind ourselves as follows.

00:09:13--> 00:09:56

Make goals for Ramadan goals for reading Quran how much Quran do we want to read? Goals for giving charity goals for changing our habits? Goals to change our life goal going forward? Ramadan is a special month where Allah subhanaw taala skews the playing field in our favor. SHA Tina change the rewards of deeds are multiplied Allah subhanaw taala forgives our sins, the gates of Jannah are opened and the gates of Johanna Masha. Allah subhanaw taala makes it easy for us to earn the maximum reward that we can let us ensure that we don't waste a single second of our time in this month.

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

My brothers and sisters the most fundamental

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

belief in Islam is the belief in resurrection after death on the day of judgment and the meeting with Elijah Elijah. Take any of the other parts of our creed take any of the our other parts of our Akira including Davi the desert and so on and ask so what the answer always is because we will meet meet Allah, why should I believe in Allah because I will meet Allah why should I believe Rasul Allah because I will meet because I will meet Allah, why should I pray because I will meet all everything

00:10:35--> 00:10:40

because I will meet Allah that is the bottom line, this is the reason why we do everything.

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

And therefore,

00:10:44--> 00:11:18

I remind myself, I knew that Islam makes sense only if we believe in the meeting with Allah. The criterion of success in this meeting is submission and obedience. That is the meaning of Islam. And that is what Taqwa is all about. Ramadan al Karim comes to teach us to submit not because we want to, or because it makes sense or it is good for health or anything else. But because Allah subhanaw taala ordered it know that

00:11:19--> 00:12:11

Allah subhana wa Tala, all the promises of Allah subhanaw taala in this life, and the akhirah are for the whole not only for, for people who are merely Muslim who for almost the whole Ramadan comes to help us to join this group. The beginning of all goodness is repentance and returning to Allah subhanho wa Taala is too far and Toba. Rasul Allah as a result I'm told us that the one who is most intelligent is the one who remembers his death most often. To remember death is to remember the meeting with Allah intelligence is to prepare for it. Allah subhana wa jal has it been home video QA Europe be him GFI rune, Allah, Allah said these are the people and he's talking about the in the in

00:12:11--> 00:12:29

Surah such that Allah subhanaw taala said these are the people who are God who either will or the in Allah vehicle injuried but whom will you call him God you know, these people say how is it possible we will die and we will be buried and we will become one with a with a dust and with the earth and we will be resurrected again.

00:12:32--> 00:12:36

To the statement Allah is saying they are denying the meeting with their rub.

00:12:37--> 00:12:42

Allah is not saying that they deny Allah existence. Allah is not saying that they deny it or hate.

00:12:44--> 00:12:47

He's not saying that. He's saying that deny the meeting with

00:12:49--> 00:13:01

and what was his reply to that? Allah subhanaw taala sir call Yadava Falco say they will die malaco Tillery boo Killa Rico monocle mode has been set upon them.

00:13:02--> 00:13:12

Samira begin to job and he will extract their souls and he will bring them back to the north. Pole Yadava Ko malaco Mattila they will kill her become so mydala become dojo.

00:13:15--> 00:13:21

And then Allah said when our Torah is removed anymore anarchy So Rosie Amen. Rob him Rob

In our MOOC you don't we will become obedient people.

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

One way street.

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

That door opens only one way.

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

There is no coming back.

00:13:57--> 00:13:58

Other Sisters,

00:13:59--> 00:14:09

we must remind ourselves that ALLAH SubhanA wa Jalla asked a question. Lm Yanbian Allahu Allah. Allah Subhana Allah said Does he not know that Allah is watching?

00:14:11--> 00:14:13

The eye does woman the Zulu

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

word for Abidjan. But as we know every leg of the Quran is applicable It comes and it is the the government whose only each one of us ourselves, the Quran is Allah talking to you and me. And the eyes is good for all time. Allah, Allah may Allah here and so that will Allah Allah said, Does he not know that Allah is watching? How does he do these things? Whatever he's doing?

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

Does he not know that Allah is watching?

00:14:40--> 00:14:51

Why is that important? Because he is going to meet Allah, what will you say to all of them, if he continues to behave in this way in this life? Who is that he is me? It is you

00:14:52--> 00:14:58

and that is because the present is all that we have. Right now.

00:15:01--> 00:15:08

The past has gone over. Good bad luck coming back. The future may never happen.

00:15:10--> 00:15:18

But just think about how much time and energy and emotion and conversation we have about the past or the future.

00:15:21--> 00:15:33

Oh, it's practically 100% that we either talking about, Oh this was this way this way this way what not good or bad or what will happen tomorrow market will collapse this will happen that will happen global in knowledge.

00:15:35--> 00:15:36

What about today?

00:15:38--> 00:15:43

This is all we have, we have nothing else. The only thing we have is now

00:15:47--> 00:15:57

and what we choose to do or not to do, will affect our everlasting future till the day till till we meet Allah subhanaw taala and then after

00:15:58--> 00:16:15

Allah Subhana Allah made it very easy for us and let us ensure that we use this great month to return to Allah subhanaw taala and never leave that path. The whole of Holly has asked for Allah Hi Lea welcome Melissa Muslim InfraStop in one of our.

00:16:31--> 00:16:32

hamdulillah

00:16:33--> 00:16:42

Al Hamdulillah Hamlin cathedral grandmama Monisha Allah Allah illallah wa ala hula should you want to share the one number hamburger Abu who were also

00:16:44--> 00:16:57

a Caracalla in the love of Allah eco saloon Ira Debbie? Yeah, you already know when on Sunday he was LD Motorcity llama salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad Ali Mohamed Kumar Selita rival Hema

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

Majeed along the vertical level harmony while Mohammed come up either 30 or female either they want him in the country the Majeed rather than just as an elder elders I remind myself when you in Ramadan we stay away even from Halal things. Only because Allah subhanaw taala ordered us to do that.

00:17:18--> 00:17:42

That is so pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala that in a hadith kotse he Gela general who he said a Somali moly we're Anna GB, he said the fastest for me and I will reward it. Allah subhanaw taala did not state the reward. He didn't say that. He didn't state the quantum of reward, how much? He said I will reward

00:17:44--> 00:17:51

what is the reward? That reward inshallah will be in keeping with the grace and Majesty of Allah subhanaw that

00:17:52--> 00:18:11

this is the reward of obedience. Just think what the lesson is that we must learn from this, that in Ramadan if we even stay away from halal, how much more important it is to stay away from haram not only in Ramadan, but all through life.

00:18:12--> 00:18:20

Ramadan comes to teach us this lesson, the lesson of the importance of obeying Allah subhanaw taala unconditionally.

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

Question is, are we learning

00:18:25--> 00:19:08

when the slave changes is that his life and opens his eyes to his connection with Allah, Allah subhanaw taala is close to him and listens to him when Allah subhanaw taala is close to him and this lady wants to talk to a lot of and Altera to beg Him for His forgiveness and mercy and to ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada for what he needs. So Allah subhanho wa Taala answers you. Allah subhanaw taala reside in the middle of the earth about fasting. Where is that aside? Like I buy the honey for any curry? Would you do that? Muda with a diary that fell yesterday holy well you know we love whom your show don't. Allah said which means that when the slaves when my slaves ask you, oh Muhammad

00:19:08--> 00:19:57

sallallahu alayhi salam concerning me, then answer them I am indeed near to them. I respond to the doer of the ones asking of the supplicant when he calls on me, so let him obey me, and believe in me, so that they may be guided. The answer comes with a rider, obey me and have faith in me and you will be rightly guided. I remind myself I knew that all promises of Allah subhanho data are conditional upon action. If we want something we must do something. Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards hugely out of proportion to the deed, but he doesn't reward the one who did nothing. So let us learn to act to please Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, for that is the only thing which matters. Then comes

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

the final gift. Laila to cover

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

The worship during which is better or equal to better how much better according to the scale of Allah subhanaw taala better than worshiping Allah subhanaw taala continuously for 1000 months

00:20:17--> 00:20:18

which is more than 83 years

00:20:20--> 00:20:32

there is no way anybody can watch a continuance even for one full day you have to sleep you have to wait here is 1000 months at three plus years worshipping Allah only one night.

00:20:34--> 00:20:38

So, as a result of Dora has to search for it in the last 10 nights of Ramadan.

00:20:39--> 00:20:55

And then he said in the odd nights, the best way to do that is to make epigraph in the last third of last days, then inshallah we will be assured of finding later to cover each other on Mother's Day that I just did.

00:20:56--> 00:21:34

She asked her supervisor, he said you also allah sallallahu Sallam if I find Leila together, what do I should I make the soul as a wrestler daughter the DUA which all of us know, along mine, the guy phone to him Bula five one, Paula, you are the forever and you'll have to forgive. So forgive me. In conclusion, I remind myself and you to remember all those who were with us last time, but are not here today? Did they know that last Ramadan would be their last? Had they know? What do you think they would have done differently from whatever they did?

00:21:35--> 00:21:43

As I said before, this is not about them. Whatever they did or did not do is gone with them. This question is about us.

00:21:44--> 00:21:48

It is to remind us that this rather than may be our last

00:21:50--> 00:21:51

as I speak to you,

00:21:52--> 00:21:56

if Allah gives me this rather than next time other than I may not be here.

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

And the same thing applies to all of us.

00:22:03--> 00:22:09

And even if we get next hour and the next one, the next one of the next one, there will be one Ramadan in our life,

00:22:10--> 00:22:24

which will be the last Ramadan of that life. Even if we live for 10,000 years, and even like if the world and gives giving rather than last year, our than will be our last.

00:22:26--> 00:22:41

We don't know which one that is. So we don't know that this one will be our last. The best thing to do therefore is to treat every Ramadan as if it is the last one, because one will be the last.

00:22:43--> 00:22:44

Therefore anytime

00:22:45--> 00:22:57

that there is any thought of doing less about laziness about giving less in charity about not giving up bad habits and asking for some time. Remember the one who asked for time?

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

Who is that?

00:23:03--> 00:23:03

He believes

00:23:05--> 00:23:09

he asked for time he didn't ask for forgiveness. Two people made a mistake.

00:23:11--> 00:23:19

Our mother and father Adam Alayhis Salam and Hawa LASR and Emily's both made a mistake both disobeyed Allah

00:23:20--> 00:23:23

what's the difference? The differences in what happens thereafter?

00:23:25--> 00:23:36

Otherwise Salaam and his wife our the Hava la Salam immediately Robina Salam fossa will love the Fila now that have then I could not have done

00:23:37--> 00:23:43

all that for forgives Allah we transgress against ourselves we install them on ourselves, the oppressed ourselves.

00:23:45--> 00:23:47

Forgive us and if you don't forgive us we are lost

00:23:49--> 00:23:50

in the Hasini

00:23:52--> 00:23:54

think about the words

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

think about the words

00:24:00--> 00:24:04

in order to those of you who know and those of you who don't know those who learn to

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

visit noxa

00:24:11--> 00:24:12

and visit Hazara

00:24:14--> 00:24:15

Is there a difference the doors,

00:24:16--> 00:24:18

locks and I looked at all of this no son.

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

What haha, complete destruction. Were a Barbra Hazara.

00:24:27--> 00:24:31

They'll have three wide one disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:24:34--> 00:24:37

What did the police do? same mistake. What did he do?

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

He said give me time.

00:24:44--> 00:24:45

Give me time.

00:24:50--> 00:24:57

Don't wait. There's no time. The best time is right now. Let's make Toba and so far we ask Allah subhana wa jal.

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

I remember this

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

Should I remind myself I knew that this opportunity we will never get again.

00:25:06--> 00:25:12

And this opportunity to make changes can be the critical opportunity to spell the difference between Jana and Johanna.

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

Let us take advantage of the opportunity that Allah gives us and maximize our benefits. Because this Ramadan is not about other rather than is about us.

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

While we,

00:25:30--> 00:25:35

before I end I want to make dua for our brother Eric Mateen.
