filarmonica humbler Hello, Bill alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala mousseline Mohammed also relies on other highly while he was I was allowed to sleep and Kaziranga sera. From Abbado, my dear brothers and sisters,

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

and how

00:00:19--> 00:00:35

we continue with our series of providers in Nevada and Kareem, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable this to be a means of enabling us to make this the best Ramadan of our lives in sha Allah.

00:00:36--> 00:00:38

And as I said, I think on day one,

00:00:39--> 00:00:46

we need to do that we need to strive to make this the best. Because we don't know whether this will be our last run.

00:00:48--> 00:00:50

And to bring that into perspective,

00:00:51--> 00:00:56

you know, and I know that if we were to speak to

00:00:57--> 00:01:01

our friends who have passed away since last year,

00:01:02--> 00:01:09

and if we could ask them last Ramadan, when you were in Ramadan, did you know that this would be your last?

00:01:11--> 00:01:13

The answer would be no.

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

But it was.

00:01:18--> 00:01:24

And just like that, this one, which we are in might be our last

00:01:26--> 00:01:30

azkals raw data to give you this Ramadan and many more to come in sha Allah

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

with his mercy and blessing,

00:01:35--> 00:01:38

but let's make the best of it while we have it.

00:01:40--> 00:01:46

You know, if somebody asked me to describe the whole purpose of Ramadan,

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

and what we should really achieve,

00:01:50--> 00:01:55

I remember amusing, but very poignant.

00:01:57--> 00:02:04

incident that happened many years ago, over 30 years ago, or actually, probably 33 years ago.

00:02:06--> 00:02:12

where two of my neighbors, they're twins, and they must have been about two years old at that time.

00:02:14--> 00:02:17

And they were in their nursery they were playing

00:02:18--> 00:02:23

with their toys, and there was some territorial dispute.

00:02:25--> 00:02:30

And one of them decided to convert that toy into a drone

00:02:32--> 00:02:35

aimed at his brother's head.

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

And the brother says to him

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

allama day Cray.

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

Allah is watching

00:02:47--> 00:02:55

the little two year old Malaga Mr. Hamilton keep them with that thought in their minds and hearts all their lives.

00:02:57--> 00:03:02

hamdulillah the beautiful young man and now they have their own children,

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

which makes me a kind of grandfather hamdulillah.

00:03:07--> 00:03:11

The point I want to make is Allah Jacory is the

00:03:12--> 00:03:20

essence. We extract the rock of water either al Karim must achieve for us.

00:03:21--> 00:03:22

takes one second to say that

00:03:24--> 00:03:27

Allah is watching time it How long does it take?

00:03:28--> 00:03:33

But that is the essence that is the fundamental truths.

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

And hamdulillah if we get that right,

00:03:38--> 00:03:39

then Believe me, we got everything right.

00:03:42--> 00:03:45

Now this is not just my conjecture. I'm not just saying this out of the top of my head.

00:03:47--> 00:03:48

This is what the Quran tells us.

00:03:50--> 00:03:59

where Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in Surah to Iraq, with respect to Abuja, hell, but as we know, the Quran applies to all of us.

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

Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:04:03--> 00:04:06

Allah said, Does he not know that Allah is watching?

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

Does he not know that Allah is watching?

00:04:14--> 00:04:23

Now this to live your entire life with this awareness that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching me.

00:04:25--> 00:04:31

This is the sum total of the message of Islam 100

00:04:33--> 00:04:34

that I live my whole life

00:04:35--> 00:04:41

with this complete and total understanding that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching me.

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

Right?

00:04:46--> 00:04:57

When one lives without understanding, believe me, to commit a sin will become literally impossible, and that's one of the best things to happen to make it impossible to commit a sin

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

and if you stick

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

do commit a sin because of forgetfulness. I mean, I don't think anything else could be a reason and out of forgetfulness because we have forgetful, forgetful people, then instantly the person would seek Pottermore seek forgiveness would make his default.

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

Right.

00:05:22--> 00:05:28

Robin, how to lay in the mocha Dima in the opening of his book.

00:05:31--> 00:05:32

He describes the near

00:05:34--> 00:05:43

intention of doing something and he says Alessandro ni, fi equally acquired of equally Amalfi equally.

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

Albar is a two one coffee.

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

He says the awareness of the near

00:05:52--> 00:06:09

the manifestation of the near the visibility of the NEA that is how of the NEA. In everything we speak in everything we do and in every situation we find ourselves in whether this is visible out in the open or whether it is hidden. elbahr is

00:06:12--> 00:06:21

this is the meaning of awareness of nia. Now why is that important? Because if a person is questioning himself by everything to say, why am I doing this?

00:06:23--> 00:06:52

And then he is aware and he says well I'm doing this to please Allah. When obviously he could not be taking an interest based loan to please alive will not be drinking alcohol to please Allah will not be gambling and putting money on horses and dogs and god knows what in races to please Allah He will not be wasting his time to please Allah could not be missing Salah to please Allah, right, oxymoronic things, because if you want to please Allah subhanho wa Taala gela delallo there is only one way to do that which is to obey Him.

00:06:54--> 00:07:00

And that obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala is called the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.

00:07:01--> 00:07:12

So if I'm living in a world where I'm obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala and my life is predicated on the Sunnah of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:07:14--> 00:07:17

then I'm good to go. hamdulillah two gentlemen.

00:07:19--> 00:07:25

And how does that happen? By living life thoughtfully, not forget fully

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

by living life thoughtfully.

00:07:31--> 00:07:33

So this is the message that

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

we get from this so RM, yada, yada, yada does the person not know that Allah Subhana Allah is watching.

00:07:43--> 00:07:50

To be aware of this, and to constantly be aware of this in every single aspect of our lives.

00:07:53--> 00:08:00

Especially where we are facing questions and dilemmas of various kinds.

00:08:01--> 00:08:11

Where we might be tempted, or we might be coerced, or you might be somebody who have you tried to force us to do something which is clearly disobedience, disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:08:12--> 00:08:19

What is the reaction of the one who is aware of that Allah is watching. Standard reaction, sorry, can't do it.

00:08:20--> 00:08:21

cannot do it will not do it.

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

There's no doubt in the person's mind.

00:08:27--> 00:08:31

All stress comes because of doubt because of Chuck Shu heart.

00:08:32--> 00:08:35

A person who does not have a doubt will not be stressed.

00:08:36--> 00:08:47

So Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Yara, the person who is saying that will not lie will not cheat will not deceive anybody. Because he knows that if he's going to tell lies, Allah knows the truth.

00:08:48--> 00:08:49

Allah knows the truth.

00:08:50--> 00:09:06

So if he is going to tell a lie, whatever the reason might be, I don't care about whatever there is, he is going to tell lies. Allah knows the truth. If he wants to deceive Allah knows the truth. If he wants to cheat somebody, Allah knows the truth. And one day he is going to meet Allah Subhana

00:09:07--> 00:09:26

Allah so just simply ask yourself this question stand in front of the mirror and say, am I going to meet Allah or not? Am I going to die or not? I know it sounds like a dumb question. But seriously, if we look at our lives today, sometimes you have to say, Well, I think I better start somewhere This is the best place do I am I going to die?

00:09:27--> 00:09:34

And when I die, will I meet Allah subhanho wa Taala What is my Yaki what is in my heart.

00:09:35--> 00:09:43

If in your heart you do not think that you will meet Allah, if you do not think that you will die,

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

or you might think you will die but you will not meet Allah and I have nothing further to say to please live your life anywhere you like. But remember, just because you do not believe in gravity does not mean that if you jump off for 2424 or 20 floor building, you will go out

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

Instead of doubt doesn't mean that reality is that which does not depend on your belief for its existence, reality is real. Allah is real, death is real. The meeting with Allah is real, and therefore we better get real.

00:10:15--> 00:10:27

What is the meaning of that? It means live your life, With this in mind, that Allah is watching Allah May Allah be Allah Allah hi Allah, but Allah Allah me.

00:10:29--> 00:10:47

Yes, you are watching and i want to be aware and live my life in a way which shows that I am living my life, knowing with this full and complete knowledge that Allah Subhana Allah is watching me was Allah Allah Allah will carry while Allah He was I remember I had to go
