Samantha Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Asha philam be able mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam to Stephen cathedra cathedra everyone sisters we were talking about the issue of Ramadan al Karim. And the issue of obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala della Dorado

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

and that Ramadan Kareem comes to teach us to become with Takuan to teach us to become obedient to Allah subhanho wa taala. As I mentioned to you, the fundamental belief of Islam is our meeting is the belief in our meeting with Allah subhanaw taala after I die I will be resurrected and I will meet Allah subhanaw taala Taqwa is this condition I must be in which will be the best thing for me to meet Allah Subhan Allah.

00:00:51--> 00:01:14

Allah subhanaw taala told us about those who deny this meeting or call who either failed or the in vehicle Kinja de balloon baleia ca Europe beam coffee rune Allah subhanaw taala said these are the people who say after we die and we have become one with the earth we have disintegrated we have decomposed and become dust.

00:01:15--> 00:01:22

How is it that we will be will be redirected again and Allah subhanaw taala said that they are denying the meeting with their

00:01:24--> 00:01:25

now point is

00:01:27--> 00:01:47

that if I want to meet Allah subhanaw taala I want this meeting to be the best. And the only way of doing that is to ensure that I meet Allah in a state of Islam, Allah so Allah Azza wa Taala Illa to Muslim who do not die until you are Muslim until you have submitted to Allah subhanaw taala completely and totally

00:01:48--> 00:02:14

to teach us this comes from Al Karim to submit to Allah subhanaw taala totally, rather than comes to teachers that How's that, as we all know, in Ramadan during the specified time period, which is between the dawn and the dusk, we are forbidden to engage in things which are otherwise halal for us which is to eat and drink and to

00:02:15--> 00:02:48

have a physical relationship with our spouses, which in normal circumstances all of these things are halal. But Allah subhanaw taala told us not to do that during this specific period of time in the month of Ramadan or when we are fasting at any time. Now when we do that, the reward of that is such that Allah Subhana Allah said Assam will li wa ZeeVee my the fastest for me and I will reward it. Another thing to remember is very important for us to remember is very important, which is that what is being

00:02:49--> 00:03:37

taught to us here, what is it that is being emphasized for us, and that is that we obey Allah because Allah said So now think about this that why do we fast? A simple question. Many people ask this question, why do you fast? There is no there is no so called mythical scientific answer we don't fast because fasting is good for purifying the blood or it is good for losing weight or it is good for cholesterol control, control or it is good for this fasting is because Allah subhanaw taala said so in order to obey the order of Allah subhanaw taala Now why is that important? Because this is the meaning of Islam and Islam is to submit to Allah subhanaw taala to make all my desires

00:03:37--> 00:04:16

subservient to the home of Allah subhanaw taala what Ramadan is emphasizing on me is that in this period of Ramadan between this time and this time, I am submitting and I am sub subservient, making subservient, my halal desires to the hug of Allah that I will not and I should not touch it. War, how much more important is it for me to continue this same spirit of obedience with regard to all that Allah has prohibited all of the hallmarks of what Allah has made haram. What Allah has made Haram is haram anyway.

00:04:17--> 00:04:59

It's not haram on that particular day. It is haram anyway, dealing in interest, alcohols, Zina, lying, cheating, taking away somebody's rights and so on and so forth or haram, how much more important it is for me to leave those haram things right throughout my life. So therefore in Ramadan, Ramadan comes to emphasize this so that we can remind ourselves and say for the sake of Allah, I lived halal. So how much more important is it for me to leave haram also for the sake of Allah? And for this we ask Allah Subhana Allah for His mercy for his forgiveness, and for his reward in sha Allah, or some Allah Allah, Allah will Karim Allah Allah he will say

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