Hello Ramallah Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah schizophyllum VA will mursaleen Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah highly highly he was. He was a lump the semen Kaziranga sera from ababu My dear brothers and sisters, first of all, let me wish all of you Ramadan Kareem. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make this Ramadan, the best Ramadan of your and my life. May Allah subhanho wa Taala enable us to exert ourselves and to tire ourselves in trying to earn his pleasure and we are not alone Allah be pleased with us. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala cover us and cover you with his, with his mercy. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive us, we see the fact that

00:00:52--> 00:01:07

we have reached Ramadan Alhamdulillah and insha Allah in good health and with the ability to work to please Allah subhanho wa Taala we see this itself as a sign of the mercy of Allah.

00:01:09--> 00:01:21

We remember and recall and we pray for all those of our brothers and sisters who were with us last Ramadan. But who are not with us this Ramadan

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

Alhamdulillah so Han Allah

00:01:27--> 00:01:32

when I reflect on this period between last Ramadan and this or that

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

I lost 10 or 12

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

of my closest friends

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

and not a single one of them to COVID

00:01:47--> 00:02:03

in this period, the reason I'm saying COVID is because it's not because of COVID that we have this number of people dying, I think it's just that you know of a lot. And also these are not all old people there were some very young people

00:02:05--> 00:02:23

zulfi was like my son, who passed away mine by one of my dearest and closest brothers, you Graham. Hi, my like my elder brother, one of my dearest and closest friends. Now, Brasilia was a mentor to me and was like my father.

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

As I was one of my dearest and closest brothers,

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

then my mother in law passed away.

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

And that happened just

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

that happened in February.

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

So many of them.

00:02:50--> 00:02:53

My question is, and my question is to myself,

00:02:54--> 00:02:59

did any of them know that last longer than than Amazon before they died?

00:03:01--> 00:03:04

Did they know that that would be their last Ramadan?

00:03:06--> 00:03:08

Obviously the answer is no.

00:03:09--> 00:03:13

Which brings of course the second question which is that had they known

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

that

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

that Ramadan

00:03:19--> 00:03:21

was would be their last?

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

What would they have done differently in it?

00:03:29--> 00:03:43

Now, the reason I'm saying this is of course we first and foremost we pray for the mark for our for the forgiveness of all of those people may Allah subhanaw taala grant all of them gentlemen, for those who are very sad.

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

But the point I'm making is that

00:03:49--> 00:04:00

today Alhamdulillah we are in Ramadan, Allah has given us this Ramadan in good health with a man and with the ability to do what it takes to try to please Him.

00:04:02--> 00:04:04

The question is, will we take advantage of that or not?

00:04:05--> 00:04:10

Or will we waste our time will we allow this time to just go away?

00:04:12--> 00:04:17

My brothers and sisters Time passes Believe me time passes and Time passes so fast it is not funny.

00:04:19--> 00:04:30

I am especially aware of it because thanks to Juma which I have to give a hug by average man is literally like I finished one Koba. And it's time for the next one.

00:04:32--> 00:04:36

I mean that whole week, and even though my life is very structured,

00:04:37--> 00:04:38

and I can quite,

00:04:39--> 00:04:52

I can very easily and I have a count of it's like I keep I keep track of what I do on a daily basis. So I mean, it's not as if I don't know where the time went. I know where the time went. And the light went in good pursuits, but the point is still that the time went.

00:04:55--> 00:04:58

So I remind myself a new era.

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

Let us ensure that not a single minute Not a single second is wasted.

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

Let us ensure that is not frittered away

00:05:09--> 00:05:12

so shut down all your social media

00:05:14--> 00:05:27

stop messaging stop unless it's an emergency otherwise no messaging no sending videos hours this that no facebook facebook just deleted remove it disconnect anyway

00:05:31--> 00:05:34

remove all distraction from your life number one thing

00:05:35--> 00:05:44

completely so no social messaging no nothing tell your family and tell the people close to you if you need me in a hurry for me

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

or send me an email

00:05:48--> 00:05:51

which you can check at the end of the day one time

00:05:55--> 00:05:57

right or send you a text message

00:05:59--> 00:06:04

but no other messaging no you know I hope you're all have WhatsApp anyway.

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

But any other messaging system I mean he everything is from the disturbing point of view from the interfering in time point of view from the time wasting point of view they are all equal.

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

So, remove all distractions from your life.

00:06:26--> 00:06:34

Get your focus right and what is the focus to please Allah subhanho wa Taala gelila nothing else

00:06:36--> 00:06:39

Ramadan is a training period

00:06:41--> 00:06:43

let us use it as a training period.

00:06:44--> 00:07:01

So goal is to please Allah, nothing else. So let us focus on that. Get our goal correct. Number two, remove all distractions. Number three, make a timetable for your day in Ramallah and say that this is how I will spend my Ramadan

00:07:03--> 00:07:05

starting with the huddle,

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

ending with the huddle to starting with the huddle all the way up to Asia and then whatever else got until about you do and then you see for a while and then you wake up at the hedges again.

00:07:19--> 00:07:20

Make a timetable.

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

And then extremely importantly, follow the timetable

00:07:26--> 00:07:35

and show that in that time they will of course for Saraswati will do but other than that you're praying Tagil you're praying Salah da da da da

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

that you are praying other novel

00:07:40--> 00:07:43

that you are reading at least one Joseph Warren

00:07:44--> 00:07:51

and I'm gonna try and do even more than that. I'm just saying as a as a basic boundary condition read at least one Jews of Quran

00:07:53--> 00:07:56

ensure that you do the Oscar of the morning and the night

00:07:57--> 00:08:05

ensure that you read surah such the answer the milk in the night and sort of the workout also inshallah is good for your risk.

00:08:07--> 00:08:17

This is the basic that every single one was must do. In addition to that, even more core and memorization

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

you know, try to do whatever else you can do.

00:08:21--> 00:08:24

But please do not do anything else.

00:08:26--> 00:08:33

Obviously I don't have to say no television and I don't care which which game is happening and what's happening.

00:08:35--> 00:08:36

Just shut it down.

00:08:37--> 00:08:39

And if you have any difficulty with that,

00:08:40--> 00:08:48

just remember what I began with which is remember those who were with us last Ramadan and who are not with us this Ramadan

00:08:49--> 00:08:54

and remind yourself and I remind myself that this may be my last Ramadan

00:08:56--> 00:08:57

and then I meet Allah.

00:09:00--> 00:09:02

So let me ensure that this Ramadan

00:09:04--> 00:09:08

is the best Ramadan in my life yet

00:09:11--> 00:09:19

and make sure that I do not do i do not leave any stone unturned. I do not leave any effort

00:09:20--> 00:09:24

to ensure that this Ramadan becomes the best in my life.

00:09:26--> 00:09:54

ask Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Allah, Allah would be pleased with you and never to be displeased. ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make this Ramadan the best of your life and to give you many more in good health and good Eman in sha Allah was Allah Allah Allah Nabeel Karim Allah Allah He was Avi as vain virological Yama Rami was al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
