Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah but mighty women sisters Alhamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us on Al Karim let us value that I want you to do what I always do in at the beginning of every row everyone I try to recall all the people who were with us last night but who are not with us this Ramadan because they passed away

00:00:29--> 00:00:35

and I remind myself and ask myself this question that those people who were there last hour

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

and then who passed away after that, did they know that last Ramadan was going to be their last?

00:00:45--> 00:01:43

Obviously they did not know because we do not know which is going to be our last but what we do know what you know and I know is that one Ramadan will be our last for me whether this one is going to be my last or not, I don't know and same thing for you. So the sensible thing the intelligent thing to do is to treat every Ramadan as if it is our last because one Ramadan will be our last. Now what does it mean to say treat the Ramadan as if it is your last? It means that treat it as if you have only 30 days of life left which means that now you prioritize your life for these 30 days do only that which is absolutely critical for you for this 30 days and do only that for which you are going

00:01:43--> 00:02:27

to be sure that are you are sure that you are going to get a reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala because we don't know these 30 days at the end of 30 days if I am still alive then we look fine we will see what is to be done if I'm not alive then it makes no difference right? So these 30 days I'm going to treat it as if this is my last so what is my priority? What is definitely not my priority is social media. What is definitely not my priority his Facebook and WhatsApp and what's not and everything else. What's definitely not my priority is Netflix and video games and computer game may Allah protect us. What is not my priority is World Cup and you know all of this Super Bowl and

00:02:27--> 00:02:34

whatnot. Right? None of these. What is my priority is to please Allah subhanho wa Taala diligent

00:02:36--> 00:03:05

and last minute Allah told us that He created us in order to worship him. Americana Pugin, Evelyn's and Ali Abu Allah, Allah Allah, He said, we have not created the human beings and the jinn for any reason other than to worship me. So let us use these 30 days of Ramadan, as if we want to try to fulfill our purpose of our creation, and not just as if try and fulfill the purpose of our creation, which is to worship Allah subhana that

00:03:06--> 00:03:18

sleep less, eat less, obviously you're fasting but at the end of fasting, let that not become a feast at the end of the first No, eat less, sleep less. And then worship Allah subhanho wa Taala the maximum

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

Brothers Sisters Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:24--> 00:03:29

didn't just send us this month, Allah subhanho wa Taala loaded this month

00:03:31--> 00:03:34

in our favor, Allah subhanaw taala chin the shayateen

00:03:36--> 00:03:50

so obviously it's no longer a level playing field the playing field is skewed in our favor let's take advantage of that. Allah subhanaw taala chain the Shatin so in the in Ramadan if you do something wrong, then guess whose fault is it

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

shaitan is Jade.

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

So whose fault is it so let's not let's not become witnesses against ourselves shaitan is jailed, stay clean.

00:04:05--> 00:04:55

Make sure that we maximize the benefit of this month shaitan is chained the reward of nothing is the reward equal to that of a further novel times the reward of a foreign is equal to 70 times or more in keeping with Allah's generosity into of novel times one four is equal to 70 or more. Now think about this in the context of what I said yesterday, which is praying the fourth Salah in the masjid imagine you're praying the formula in the budget by Gemma that is 27 times the reward anyway, plus multiply that by 70. And then all of these numbers and sums and math is for us. Allah subhanaw taala gives without his app, ask Allah subhanaw taala to help you and to support you and to reward you in

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

a way that you cannot imagine. Or Salah Allah Allah Allah will carry while Ali was available

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

But I want to get on with life
