related to Ramadan and we are trying to extract some lessons from them for us to apply in our lives, making Ramadan as the starting point. But going forward for the rest of our lives in sha Allah.

00:00:34--> 00:00:48

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

most of the

00:02:16--> 00:02:39

Cumberland sisters. This shows us not just the importance of fasting which of course are under the law in Ramadan we do. Bar it also shows us the importance of fasting throughout the year different times the novel fast plus in connection with Ramadan, this also shows us the importance of

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

being connected with the Koran with delivered in

00:02:45--> 00:03:15

the head this year is showing us that is not just fasting staying away from food and desires. But also the standing in the night the camel laid the Koran and different parts of the time of the day. This also is extremely important. So this is very very important for us to understand as I remind myself when you over and over again. Ramadan al Karim is like a bootcamp. It is like a rejuvenation

00:03:17--> 00:03:32

retreat, where Allah subhanho wa Taala takes us out of the normal hustle bustle of life. Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us this booster of increasing the rewards for all our actions,

00:03:34--> 00:04:00

making those 70 times more and in keeping with his majesty and grace. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala also makes it easy for us to obey Him by chaining up shatin Allah subhanho wa Taala gives the genre of opening the gates of Jannah and shutting the gates of jahannam. All of these things are done to make it easy for us to

00:04:01--> 00:04:10

to practice Islam and to fast and to do to read as much of the Quran as we can and to make the Curzon.

00:04:11--> 00:04:26

Again and again, I say and I remind myself when you that. The first thing is to reiterate and emphasize in our lives, the importance of obedience to Allah subhanho that

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

this is the single most important fundamental message of Ramadan that we obey Allah because we believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and we believe in our return to Allah Spano tala, so we do only that which pleases Allah. And we do not do that which does not please Allah, irrespective of whatever anybody in the world may say or do just like we do with Ramadan. in Ramadan, we don't eat from

00:05:00--> 00:05:22

The beginning of the day to the end of the day from dawn to dusk. And it doesn't matter whether anyone else likes it doesn't like it approves of it doesn't approve, it thinks it is logical and sensible things it is illogical and senseless, whatever might be the case, we do it because we want to be the last banner data because it is the hook of Allah.

00:05:24--> 00:05:36

What then, about the other akam of Allah subhanho data throughout our lives? What about the hokum of Allah, when it comes to marriage

00:05:37--> 00:06:17

to to conducting a marriage? What about the hokum of Allah when it comes to our relationship with our spouses? What about the Hakama of Allah when it comes to our relationship with our parents? What about the hokum of Allah when it comes to our relationship with our children? What about the hokum of Allah when it comes to dealing in society, with our business with, with various things that we do in life, where we might be challenged, or we might be tempted to disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala. And all kinds of excuses are given for this?

00:06:18--> 00:06:23

What about that? What about such a time? Will we obey Allah?

00:06:24--> 00:06:29

Or will we give in to whatever somebody

00:06:30--> 00:06:39

tries to convince us as being better than obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala? Which one? What will we do?

00:06:41--> 00:06:55

This is what Ramallah al Karim comes to emphasize and reiterate, and show us that throughout this month, or the 29 or 30 days that it was, you obey the law,

00:06:56--> 00:06:59

you did only what Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered you to do.

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

You did not do what you wanted to do, you did not follow your desire. Even though those desires were halaal. Those desires were not for Haram, they were for halaal. But because Allah subhanaw taala privated, the following of that desire in that window of time, you did not do it.

00:07:29--> 00:07:32

You didn't argue against it, and you did not disobey Allah.

00:07:33--> 00:07:45

This is the framework. This is the criteria. And this is the standard. This is the template, which we must take from here and apply on the rest of our lives.

00:07:46--> 00:07:57

So now when a person comes to me and says Why don't you take a loan, why don't you take a mortgage to buy a house to build a house to start a business? So no, Allah does not like this.

00:07:58--> 00:08:03

All but this is America, this is Australia, this is India. This is no doesn't matter. Same Allah.

00:08:05--> 00:08:09

Allah subhanho data is the love of America and Australia and everywhere else.

00:08:10--> 00:08:16

And the order of Allah the hug of Allah, the decree of Allah is valid,

00:08:18--> 00:08:27

independent of time and space. So what Allah order I will follow, no matter where I am geographically located.

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

Right? This is the thing.

00:08:32--> 00:08:42

People say Oh, but if you don't do this, what will the world what will other people say? What would people say? What will society say?

00:08:43--> 00:08:45

Do you get about that when you are fasting?

00:08:47--> 00:08:51

Or fasting because you want people to say you are a great faster?

00:08:53--> 00:08:54

Great, pious person,

00:08:55--> 00:09:10

great value of Allah or are you fasting to please Allah which one because if it is the first one, then you have asked is useless anyway because you are fasting to show people but if it's the second one, inshallah, that's what it is. Then you don't care about what people say let people say anything.

00:09:13--> 00:09:50

shift it to everything else. Whatever Allah ordered, if I conduct my own wedding or the wedding of my son or daughter, according to the tsunamis, I sell them which is without ostentation, without all kinds of horrified and useless customs and practices of my culture. I follow the synonymous Asana. Some people might like it, some people might not like it, it doesn't matter. That's not my criteria of decision making. I do it because Allah likes it. I do it because as soon as salam would have liked it, that's it. Period. This is what fasting is teaching us.

00:09:51--> 00:09:58

Do that which pleases Allah and leave that which does not please Allah. This is the essence of taqwa.

00:10:00--> 00:10:14

We ask Allah subhanaw taala for this We ask Allah to help us to achieve this. We ask Allah Subhana data to make Ramadan the means of achieving this stuff which Allah was Allah Allah Allah will carry while he was average main gravity karma
