I am taking a break from the series of lectures we were doing 2021 challenges and solutions there are two more lectures inshallah in their series to be done. I'm taking a break this jumar because this is the last summer before Ramadan and I thought it's important for us to

00:00:36--> 00:01:24

remind ourselves about this great month and this great blessing of Allah subhanaw taala that is coming up. So therefore let us see what we need to do to welcome Ramadan and to get the maximum benefit from it inshallah. Alhamdulillah inshallah, in two or three days from today, we will welcome Ramadan, asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep us all in a state of strong Eman, good health, and give us free time to be able to make the most of this month. Allah Subhana Allah sends Ramadan Kareem as a blessing and a bonus for us to be able to reboot our lives. Allah Subhana Allah mentioned Ramadan and it's special honor, where Allah Allah, Allah Humana shaytani r rajim Bismillah

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

con,

00:02:02--> 00:02:52

con touch guru soon, a lot of our data set which means the month of Ramadan, in which was revealed the Quran, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion. So whoever Have you cites the moon of Ramadan and is present at home he must fast that month, and whoever ill or on a journey, the same number of days which one did not fast must be made up from other days. Unless Ryota intends for you ease and does not want to make things difficult for you. He wants that you must complete the same number of days, which means not more, same number of days, and that you must glorify Allah subhanaw taala for having guided you so that you may be grateful to him. Ramadan

00:02:52--> 00:03:41

Kareem is a man of the Quran. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to open our hearts to his Kalam and to Allah illuminate our hearts with it, to give us The joy of listening to it in taraweeh and the peace and tranquility of reading it on our own. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make the Quran our constant companion in this life, our companion and protector in our graves and our intercessor when we meet him on the Day of Judgment, ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to understand his column to be inspired by it, live by it and die on it. Allah subhanaw taala said about the reason he sent Ramadan to for us. Yeah, you have Lavina Manu Kumar on a MOOC mukamal gudivada levina kabale kome

00:03:41--> 00:04:21

gudivada levina publikum la la quinta Poon Allah said, which means oil believe. Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before us so that you may become almost taccone people who are people who have Taqwa pious people, the purpose of life my brothers and sisters I remind you and myself is to become moutoku people who who are who are Mottaki people who are concerned with the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala alone in all that we think we intend we say or we do, people for whom Allah subhanaw taala promised success in this life and his special reward in the ACA.

00:04:23--> 00:04:52

Allah Subhana Allah sends Ramadan al Karim to give us a boost to become more takuan. To be a Motoki is to be concerned about what pleases Allah Subhana within and to do what he ordered us to do, and for that reason alone, because he said so. in Ramadan Kareem we are ordered to abstain from things which are halaal during the period of daylight for no reason. Other than that Allah subhanho wa Taala told us to abstain to abstain from them.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

This is reinforced in our minds and hearts the importance of obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

unquestioningly we don't question because we know who ordered it. Not because we are following blindly to where to obey Allah without question is the best example of obedience with awareness and thoughtfulness. Ramadan al Karim comes to drive home the point that if we can abstain, even from the halaal just to please Allah how much more important it is to abstain from the Haram throughout our lives. Ramadan Kareem is also an opportunity to change our habits permanently because habit change is set to take 21 days with Ramadan we have 29 to 30 days of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to change our habits permanently so that we obey him without fail throughout

00:05:47--> 00:06:34

our lives. In our Shabbat, Allah Allah said life is button instant Let it be an instant of obedience. I remind myself that all the promises of Allah are for the moutoku people of taqwa and lots of our data said in Allah hammer Allah Vina taco one levina Hamas, you know, in certain Allah Allah subhanaw taala said truly, Allah subhanho wa Taala is with those who have Taqwa. And with those who are mercy known people who do even more who are focused on excellence. We're focused on a son who can harm the one who is with Allah. Allah subhanaw taala told us that this world and what it contains, he gives to whoever he wishes for reasons that he knows best. These may or may not be

00:06:34--> 00:06:39

looked upon, but the ark era is for the Mata own alone.

00:06:40--> 00:06:49

Allah said Angelica Lara god this Allah mosaico me historian ob la he was biru in Allah, Allah Allah wa

00:06:51--> 00:07:14

everybody wants to lil Motoki, Allah said, Moses, Elisa Lam said to his people, seek help with Allah and be patient. Verily, the earth belongs to Allah. He gives it as a heritage to whomever He wills of his slaves. And the but the blessed end is for the motorhome

00:07:16--> 00:08:12

and what is the end? What is this blessed ending? Allah subhanaw taala described in many places in the Quran, but one of them instead of Muhammad, Allah subhanaw taala said Martha oleana Origin The lady worried Alamo taco and IV and Harun Mima as in one how long millennial amitava tamo ramen hamari Lhasa delicia Eb one har en mi na Salim most of while on V. coulis, Amara Mira Mira beam, Allah, Allah said the description of Jenna which the taco have been promised is that in it are rivers of water the taste and smell are which are not changed rivers of milk of which the taste never changes they don't go out rivers of wine delicious to those delicious for those who drink and

00:08:12--> 00:08:40

rivers have clarified honey clear and pure they are in for them is every kind of fruit and forgiveness from the rock jello journal, as well as random data to grant us all gentlemen for those without a shot. Raul Kareem comes with special benefits unlike any other time of the year. And so it is essential for us to make the most of it and earn as much as we can. about what are the Allahu anhu reported.

00:08:41--> 00:09:30

That also relies on a solemn said, Every action a son of Adam does shall be multiplied a good action by 10 times its value up to 700 times Allah Subhana Allah said except for fasting, which belongs to me and I rewarded accordingly, for one abandons his desire and food for my sake. Abra Delano reported that our solar Solar System said there are two occasions of joy for a fasting person one when he breaks his fast and the other when he meets his rub jello jello. The the smell of the breath of a fasting person is better in the sight of Allah than the fragrance of musk and this is in Makati. Ramadan al Karim is not only about not eating and drinking, but about habit change. It is

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

about building patience and forbearance and not being reactive. avora Alanna reported that also rossano Sallam said fasting is a shield. So when one of you is fasting, he should neither indulge in obscene language, nor should he raise his voice in anger. If someone attacks him or insults him, let him say I am fasting and outside and this is in Muslim, Allah subhanaw taala is always merciful, but Rama but in Ramadan al Karim. His mercy is shy

00:10:00--> 00:10:50

For even more, I remind myself and you that we humans have only two real needs hedaya guidance in this life and mafara forgiveness in the akhira whoever is fasting inshallah is on holiday. And when he does that, Allah subhanaw taala forgives his sins have reported that rasulillah salam said whoever fasts during the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah subhanho wa Taala his reward then all his past sins will be forgiven. And this is in alvarion Muslim. Just think about that. What does all past sins will be forgiven? What does it mean? It means a total reboot of our lives and opportunity for a fresh start. Ramadan al Karim is about doing more. It is

00:10:50--> 00:11:36

about putting Allah subhanaw taala first and seeking to please Him by worshipping him more than we normally do. Chief among these extra acts of worship is caramel Ale, which is called tarawih and is specific to Ramadan. It's an opportunity to pray in congregation and to listen to more Quran and connect with Allah's mercy and grace of a hora reported that Rasul Allah Salim said whoever stands in the voluntary night prayer gamma Lail of Ramadan, which is Dharavi, out of faith and in hope of reward his previous sins will be forgiven. And this is in Bukhari and Muslim this refers to cavaleiro which is the huddled as well as taraweeh in Ramadan. Finally, the deeds that we do in

00:11:36--> 00:12:22

Ramadan will be with us when we meet Allah subhanaw taala on the day of judgment and will be a means of forgiveness for us in sha Allah. Abdullah even amor rhodiola, one oma reported that rasulillah salam Salam said fasting and the Koran will intercede on behalf of Allah slave on the Day of Judgment, fasting will say oh my rub, I prevented him from food from eating and desires during the day so accept my intercession for him. And the Quran will say, Oh, my rub, I prevented him from sleeping at night. So accept my intercession for him. the intercession of both will thus be accepted. And this is in Muslim Imam Ahmed. And then just when you are saying to yourself, surely it

00:12:22--> 00:12:28

can't get better than this. Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim in

00:12:29--> 00:12:32

a movie called wah

00:12:34--> 00:12:41

wah karma Laila Toluca, Laila to Casa de si Rahman Al vicia. Done as

00:12:43--> 00:12:49

well rofi hobbies in Iraq be him, Cooley, sir.

00:12:51--> 00:12:54

So he had a motto that I

00:12:56--> 00:13:45

enjoy to cuddle Allah. Allah said, Verily, We have sent it that is the Koran down in the night of al Qaeda. And what will make you know, how will you know what the night of our cover is? The night our cover letter will cover is better than 1000 months, meaning it is worshipping in this night is better than Hiram min worshipping Allah subhanaw taala continuously for 1000 months which is equal to 83 years and four months. And this is not equal to that meaning. The worship in a local culture is not equal to that it is higher or min it is better than that meaning how much better Allah knows. They're in descent the angels and the row dubray salam, by Allah hunters permission with our

00:13:45--> 00:14:29

decrees, peace, Salah moon had multiple versions all that night there is peace and goodness from Allah subhanho wa Taala towards believing slaves until the appearance of dawn. What can I say? What can you say? What Can anybody say? the generosity of our Rob Jalla Jalla who is unimaginable. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us later to gather and the toffee and ability to worship him that night in a way that pleases him geladeira which night is there to color Rasul Allah says Allah told us to search for it in the odd nights of the last 10 nights of Ramadan. It is the hikma the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he did not reveal which night is a true color, but kept it hidden

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

among the odd nights of the last 10 nights. So don't get involved in discussion and arguments about which night it is. There are different variations. But the most authentic of them is that Russell Russell told us to search for it and did not mention a specific date. Instead, let us do our best on all the knights and thank Allah subhanaw taala for his immense bounty. The reward of worshipping in this night is more than the continuous worship for 1000 months.

00:15:00--> 00:15:52

How much more in keeping with the majesty and grace of Allah subhanho wa Taala Finally, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless our mother, and reward her with the best reward, a lady whose questions and curiosity gave us so many bounties indeed, say that Dora seda is Ayesha Siddiqa. rhodiola Whoa. On her, she asked us all as a seller, Yasser Allah sallallahu sallam, if I find later Kolkata, what should I ask Allah? He is Allah Islam said, say Allah Hama, in Naga one to humble alpha 510 Allah you are forgiving and love forgiveness, so forgive me. So Allah Alhamdulillah Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah Akbar, my brothers and sisters Alhamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:53--> 00:16:40

is incredibly merciful, that Allah subhanho data, but will inshallah We ask Allah to give us as I began, Ramadan in good health and even and the ability and the free time to do the best that we can do. Please understand and remember, as I speak to you today about Ramadan Kareem, I am remembering so many of my friends who were with us last Ramadan, but they are not with us this Ramadan. And there are so many of them, or ones and young ones. And I asked myself when I asked you to ask yourself, did they know that last Ramadan would be their last? Obviously they did not. So do I know if this Ramadan will be my last? I don't know. And you don't know either. So my submission to you is

00:16:40--> 00:16:49

please let us treat this Ramadan as if it is going to be our last. And the reason I'm saying that May Allah give you many Ramadan.

00:16:50--> 00:17:35

Ramadan is to come in good health and demand. But the reason I'm saying this to you is because whether you live for one more year or you live for 1000 years, one Ramadan will be your last. And you don't know that and I don't know that. So let us treat every Ramadan as if it is the last and get the best, the maximum that we can out of it for ourselves. ask Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with you and never to be displeased. ask Allah Subhana Allah to give you what you ask will hire an alpha. And then to add to that from His Majesty and grace and generosity, ask Allah subhanaw taala to cover your faults and cover your mistakes with his Satori with the cover of his with his cover

00:17:35--> 00:18:01

where they are not visible to anybody. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to forgive you and to enter you into general for those with the lady who shot well Sal Allah Allah Allah Karim Allah Allah He was a board member Rama Rama Rama Rama Dar Al Karim Allah Mubarak to all of you may Allah subhanho wa Taala be pleased with you.
