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

analogies

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

and medical help can be less than

00:00:12--> 00:00:13

one now.

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

To have

00:00:27--> 00:00:40

all the glory belongs to a lot of blessings, we have won the Best of his profits and the seal of his missus juice. And the most superior sleep in his entire creation are mystery comments on the wall.

00:00:42--> 00:00:56

And we justify that none is worth the worship of Allah alone. And then no one is worthy of following as a perfect example of comments a lot more on a new system. And the Choose the words, the words of a love from the west of diamonds is a pseudonym.

00:00:57--> 00:01:08

And the most matches the newly added matters into this already perfecting and completely Dean. For every newly invented marriage, this religion is leading astray and it only leads to the fire.

00:01:11--> 00:01:14

Of course, Ron is right there. Yeah.

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

And Ramallah comes and goes comes and goes his beloved guests.

00:01:24--> 00:01:29

But for sure, you know, and this has said many times and you should continue to be said

00:01:30--> 00:01:37

that a time it's going to go into Laguna come back for sure one of the motto Milan to be your last resort.

00:01:38--> 00:01:46

Last time I was my father's last. May Allah have mercy on our parents in years, and what will be my last.

00:01:47--> 00:01:50

And Allah has barred us from knowing which one

00:01:52--> 00:02:00

right? And so we need to intend First of all, to max out on this on the lawn because our profits on the

00:02:01--> 00:02:06

city limit our matter with DNS actions are high their intention. So even if we don't make it to

00:02:07--> 00:02:10

you, even if we don't assume it's so close.

00:02:11--> 00:02:24

But that turned out to be closer, we will get rewarded for our intention. If it is true if it is genuine if it is a firm resolve and determination inside us, but it must cease from within us.

00:02:26--> 00:02:43

But if he permits for us to get to an avant in order for us to truly capitalize on it, we have to realize what we're supposed to get out of it like going in you need to have a certain vision of what am I supposed to get out of this month.

00:02:45--> 00:02:50

And Ramadan, it's no secret, it's a month worrying a person has a chance to

00:02:52--> 00:03:06

refuel like a gas station on your journey to a love Yeah, to rekindle that relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala our link with Allah by putting it into overdrive.

00:03:08--> 00:03:38

Because no alaba Milan is like a huge, it's like a huge shopping spree. But for your spirit. Ramadan is like a bonus sale. Everything is on sale. And everything comes with bonuses in this month of online because you do it while you're fasting. Because your heart is in that state where it's much more connected and alert to Allah subhanho wa Taala because there's more sincerity involved as a result of practicing sincerity in your past.

00:03:40--> 00:03:52

And because the rewards of the needs in reality in Ramadan are even greater than the needs outside of Milan, aside from every other factor. So it's like this huge sale.

00:03:54--> 00:04:32

You know, they say it's Black Friday, right? Everybody's there early, trying to get whatever he can before it's all over before the products run out, or the day concludes. And we don't call it Black Friday, Fridays and the brightest day of the week for us. Yeah. And keep in mind, what happens when there's these huge sales. Think about that for a second. We usually come to the store. And we see that the product is like half the cost, or even less than half the cost sometimes. So you begin to think or assume that you need this product.

00:04:34--> 00:04:53

You start buying more things than you actually need why that's a great deal. And you buy stuff you may never use. It's just like man, look at the offer. And you start storing it away. Maybe I'll leave it and that's very wrong, by the way. And that's how we have to be very careful brothers and sisters alike.

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

Yes, sir.

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

There is a white Chrysler minivan blocking everybody from leaving.

00:05:08--> 00:05:12

There is a white Chrysler minivan plucking everyone

00:05:15--> 00:05:16

in the parking lot.

00:05:19--> 00:05:23

Kennedy gene in new park, the white Chrysler minivan, please

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

do

00:05:29--> 00:05:29

not.

00:05:33--> 00:05:57

Listen, listen, I have to make the shopping point even though we're going to get into this true, it's very dangerous center store and buy stuff that you don't need or go shopping for something they can always it's only 30% of the cost. Yeah, but it's 30% more than you had to spend if you didn't need it to begin with. Keep that in mind doesn't do that either has used for something and go ahead and buy over give it away.

00:05:58--> 00:06:25

You know there's a hadith is a controversial authenticity to it. Very beautiful study to show you just how I learned the preference of the love audience and it was about this matter, that he will enter his house and exit enter his house and exit enter his house and exit. They asked him what's bothering you see, one easy, he said I feared that there was something left in the house of the heart that we could give out that we didn't give out. Maybe there's something I can do without. Right.

00:06:29--> 00:06:37

And so donavon is that shopping spree? You enter and you try to pile on because there's no such thing as too much.

00:06:38--> 00:06:44

And this is the season when the greatest good deeds get even more inflated in their values.

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

What are the greatest good deeds

00:06:48--> 00:07:05

in Islam, the five pillars, right? They represent Islam they represent that act of surrender. They are the most great, most noble act of surrender, so Salah, zakka, Hajj and fasting

00:07:06--> 00:07:17

as for Sala that's augmented in Ramadan aside from it being the greatest act right. Whoever stands up to grace Allah with the man and seeking the reward his previous sins are forgiven

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

in in

00:07:24--> 00:07:30

he gave us an even greater bonus on that. He told us man Obama Malema

00:07:33--> 00:07:39

whomever stands not even for the whole of Milan at night. This stands behind his email

00:07:40--> 00:07:47

until the man himself leaves it is written for him there award of the whole night. big bonus right.

00:07:49--> 00:07:54

As for charities occur, I mean, look at the numbers on

00:07:56--> 00:08:05

the drop that he said cannot last little lights on the lohani he was a nurse the messenger of a loss of a lover I said that was the most generous of people.

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

You know how generous he was?

00:08:12--> 00:08:13

I just let me stop with that.

00:08:16--> 00:08:23

Narrative as well. He says that the prophets of Allah Why didn't you send them via la he

00:08:25--> 00:08:34

he later someone gave him a gift, a cloak and overcoat. While he was in need for it he really actually needed was an extra.

00:08:36--> 00:08:39

So one of the men from the onslaught got up and said

00:08:41--> 00:08:45

management had the hula hoop Sunita.

00:08:46--> 00:08:49

how beautiful this cloak is or Mrs. Roma.

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

gifted to me.

00:08:53--> 00:09:01

Can I have it so beautiful. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entered took it off and burn it out to the men gave it to them.

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

The rest of us who haven't saw the scene, they became irate, so angry.

00:09:11--> 00:09:32

And they said, How could you do that? How could you ask the messenger of a love for something that his his workers are after? And now he later and you knew that he needed it? And he didn't have another one? And that this is the point and that he is never asked of anything except when he gives

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

us the most generous people.

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

You didn't have to ask him right.

00:09:42--> 00:09:48

If he noticed or assumed about you that you like something you'd go out of his way to give it to you.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

And the when the narration mentions, I don't know that he does not

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

Say no and the reason I asked is because I wanted it to be my shroud with my caffeine when I died. Somebody had touched us a little muscle above our skin. May Allah grant us near and this to him in the hereafter

00:10:14--> 00:10:19

and gratis nearly Sue's example in Estonia so he qualified to hear after a moment.

00:10:21--> 00:10:36

And so the message of our best narration he was the most generous of people that had he continues and says what, and the most generous he was was in Ramadan, sees as an upgrade on the shopping spree is when you're supposed to be more than ever.

00:10:37--> 00:10:46

Can I hire him in a really musalla he was more generous with goodness with graciousness, then the

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

reasonable seller is the

00:10:51--> 00:11:36

I don't have a good translations word. But the unbound do in the wind that has no limit, it goes left and right and up and down east and west, north and south. Consider a culture that their life is the desert and some shade is a blessing and some a breeze is amazing. We unbound The wind is the wind that comes in, give us those that needed and those that don't. It goes in every direction, spreads the blade everywhere, even to the places that don't even need it right now. You understand? Meaning his plane was a blanket on whoever he could reach Salalah body radio says nothing, especially in Ramadan. Before I did this, I need to continue with the point of a shopping spree.

00:11:37--> 00:12:00

One of the reasons why we don't capitalize as best as we could we could do better in Ramadan, is because we're disheartened. We say man, I do try harder than donavon. With every year after Ramadan, I fall again, right? I can't keep up the where I'm at in Ramadan, you guys get this feeling right. I wish I could stay where

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

it says he was even more generous in Ramadan, which means what?

00:12:07--> 00:12:09

He was a little less generous outside.

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

And still those debtors of people, he was only second best to himself. But

00:12:19--> 00:12:27

you understand. But that teaches you that bond is not to be sustained throughout the year, or else it wouldn't be special.

00:12:29--> 00:12:53

But Robin is actually and that's why I said you put it in overdrive, you try to fill up as much as you can, so that it could carry you through the year. You understand. You really push yourself a little harder. And as for the other pillar of Islam fasting is the main worship of the month. Right. And as for the last pillar of Islam, and we had mentioned was that

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

Hajj, right, and it

00:12:57--> 00:12:58

says is the province of

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

God.

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

Ramadan

00:13:06--> 00:13:14

and making our own world Ramadan is equivalent to maybe had you with me upgrade another upgrade of your shopping spree. This is like a marathon.

00:13:16--> 00:13:29

So Ramadan is when you put it in overdrive and you get these bonuses to push you to do so many good deeds so much more than you ever would so much more than you can do for the whole year. Why?

00:13:31--> 00:13:42

Because Robin is supposed to get you help you once again coast cruise for the rest of the year. You know what it's like, as

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

one good chef,

00:13:47--> 00:13:53

one of the most beloved people to my heart. He says it's like a catapult. You know the catapult engineer.

00:13:54--> 00:14:37

What's the catapults like, you pull it back, you're gonna pull back five feet, 10 feet, 20 feet, right? And you pull it back real hard. But only this much you're pulling and then you let it go it goes to such a distance. Right? Ramadan is a time where you really squeeze on yourself. Pull Pull, pull on yourself, so that it could carry you for the other 11 months by the time your your fuel becomes low, you're at another Ramadan again, that's a gift from Allah subhana wa tada to keep us going in this journey to him. It's like those rest areas, but you're not resting you're pushing hard. The only way to rest is to work, man.

00:14:40--> 00:14:55

Whomever wishes to rest must abandon it. And this is not just talking about the hereafter even here, your only true risk is in nourishing that soul of yours and we can never stop talking enough about the hearts

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

because all that we build in this one hour

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

Two hours, three hours of just me my business was due here in Pennsylvania is one compared to all the factors that weigh in our hearts outside.

00:15:13--> 00:15:16

And so that's the image you know, another doctor

00:15:18--> 00:15:20

gives another beautiful example of what Coronavirus like he says

00:15:24--> 00:15:45

is like those fish that are stuck when the net gets thrown into the sea, they panic for a little bit. And then he realizes that that is coming out of the water is about to die. And so he backs up backs up and he gives an all he has to try to rip through the minutes to get out to his last chance. Sounds like a find that people have seen right?

00:15:47--> 00:15:48

He says

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

waiting for

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

me was great.

00:15:54--> 00:16:18

He says so the fish pulls back, pulls back and tries to gather all the energy he has to rip through the neck because he knows that if he doesn't get out now, he's gonna be on the grill in a few minutes. He doesn't know that much. But he knows that it's dangerous. Yeah, he does. Likewise us the many nets have shaved on all that they have caught us good throughout the year. And we're

00:16:19--> 00:16:36

about to give us extra incentive extra bonus to try to muster as much as we can to make up for all the ground we've lost in the battle to try to pull ourselves back so we can rip out of his nets once and for all because if we don't, we'll be on the grill as well.

00:16:38--> 00:16:42

Right We will be scorched as well. We will end up where he's ending up wherever we land.

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

And so Ramadan is really about

00:16:47--> 00:17:01

a boot camp, a tough rigorous training course to condition you to discipline you and think about it. Like if a person can stay away from hella water for the daytime that entire month.

00:17:02--> 00:17:22

You know staying away from alcohol after that they will not forgive us loads of drinking before Ramadan becomes a joke. If a person can stay away from his holiday spouse, his wife for us for that those days of Ramadan, lowering the gaze and staying away from the heart becomes so easy. Yes.

00:17:23--> 00:17:29

If you are able for a home, you know, they tell you it takes 28 days to build a habit

00:17:30--> 00:17:33

that Ramadan is at least 29 days.

00:17:34--> 00:18:00

It could be 30 days, depending on the site things of the mood, right? If you can push yourself to be conscious of a month behind closed doors, it'll become a habit. Not a habit that's mindless, you'll become habitually conscious you'll need to be because you know being conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala is all about fasting has been prescribed for you Kevin kuchibhotla

00:18:01--> 00:18:05

prescribed for those before you so you may become conscious

00:18:06--> 00:18:10

that comes on many levels like every Muslim has to

00:18:11--> 00:18:16

keep that in mind. What a simple answer the question sisters was support.

00:18:17--> 00:18:18

Let me get you in here with me.

00:18:20--> 00:18:25

Sisters, can someone tell me what's up boy, this is more than one way to explain it.

00:18:26--> 00:18:31

You can explain it by its parameters. You can explain it by its roots whatever you want to explain it by

00:18:35--> 00:18:47

southward means it's affirming superstition, protect himself shield himself avoid, you know, tough place to avoid church to protect yourself from the anger of Allah. How do you do that?

00:18:49--> 00:18:54

You're out there doesn't mean you're gonna run away from others. Because of everything you're afraid of.

00:18:55--> 00:19:23

You run away from except you work you're afraid of him you run to him to kind of beautiful is that? What a loving compassionate God right? So if you run away to Allah from him to him, meaning more meaning from his anger to his pleasure. You're friendlier. Mom, you run to your dad. When your dad slips you run to your mom. Yeah. When you're afraid of your enemies you run to your allies.

00:19:25--> 00:19:33

When you're afraid of outdoors, the winter you're running indoors when there's a fire indoor you run outdoors. When you're afraid of luck, you run to a loss.

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

There is no opposite. There is no sanctuary away from him except with him. so tough work is to have run away from a was anger. Avoid his anger His wrath is punishment by running to him. His pleasure is obedience every Muslim has because every Muslim in order to be Muslim, there has to be a certain degree of avoiding or was angry.

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

Do the bare minimum. You have, you have this avoidance of shame, right? Every Muslim avoid this belief that there's that much stuff on his life. That's very minimum, you don't avoid anymore. That's step one.

00:20:17--> 00:20:20

But step four comes on many different levels.

00:20:22--> 00:20:23

And by the way,

00:20:25--> 00:20:35

you can figure out your level of tough love by considering what shavon whispers see you Meaning what? What is it hard for you to avoid right now?

00:20:37--> 00:20:45

The highest levels of Tableau is when you become completely liberated from the whispers of shavon altogether.

00:20:48--> 00:20:59

Almost, because no one is completely liberated, right? We're not the prophets. But look at someone like he had so much stuff that shavon used to actually run from him.

00:21:01--> 00:21:03

Because he reversed the equation

00:21:07--> 00:21:11

below 100 he says that the prophets of Allah native system said he

00:21:13--> 00:21:17

met mess up silica gel Illa silica shavon.

00:21:19--> 00:21:31

Meaning man, how amazing is your affair or remark? You never take a roll. takes any other road except your room. He doesn't write the same street as you. That's a very high level of depth.

00:21:33--> 00:21:35

Right the level right under that

00:21:36--> 00:21:37

is when a person

00:21:40--> 00:21:56

gets caught off guard by shavon. once in a blue moon catches him off guard. But then he remembers right away he becomes conscious right away his support kicks in right away again, as a law so justice in the lilina taco

00:21:57--> 00:22:00

bar if Amina shaytani tobacco

00:22:02--> 00:22:14

indeed the people of taqwa there are those that when they are touched by a par five is translated as an impulse a quick kids human thought was fast about if

00:22:15--> 00:22:49

you don't catch the blindsides, you have the same fights. You got caught off guard you got blindsided. A person of taqwa is someone who when he's caught off guard by Shahzad, he remembers he returns to his Apple, he returns to his conscious things. And all of a sudden he has insight inside of what's inside the home of his greatness, the gravity of sins, He comes he becomes conscious of laying there in his greed, consciousness standing up again on the Day of Judgment, constant conscious of that book that people sell three to a love is deep, mobile, sweet, oh, he has insight all over again. That's a lesser degree of trouble.

00:22:50--> 00:23:00

There's an even lesser degree of tough luck. When shaitan can catch you on certain weaknesses, he knows about you to fall into major sins.

00:23:02--> 00:23:10

A lot of soldiers that Iran when he's speaking about the Mujahideen, there's still much appeal. He says

00:23:11--> 00:23:13

about them, when they're the

00:23:14--> 00:23:24

hisher. And those that when they commit an immorality, like a major system. So there people have tougher but they still felt it to make this a different degree now,

00:23:25--> 00:23:26

either.

00:23:28--> 00:23:48

Wrong themselves that they remember Allah, meaning they don't remember why immediately when there's a quick hit, after they fall into a big one. Then they come to their senses they regret and man How can I do this again? How can I speak back to my parents again? How do I do it again? How did I take part in Riba again, right?

00:23:50--> 00:23:52

They remember Allah,

00:23:53--> 00:23:55

then they seek forgiveness for their sins

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

of love, and who will forgive your sins.

00:24:03--> 00:24:07

And they do not persist in what they did. While they know.

00:24:12--> 00:24:37

Those awards will be a forgiveness from their Lord with genetic diversity with cacti and gardens underneath which rivers flow abiding, they're in forever. How excellent is the reward of good doers. So these are different levels of topical. The point is that in Oregon, you're supposed to up your level of stuff. And if you want to know where your level is, check what's on whispering to you right now.

00:24:38--> 00:24:40

Like if you have a certain degree of tough love,

00:24:43--> 00:24:44

right?

00:24:47--> 00:24:49

He's more strategic than that.

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

He may tell you commit Zina. If you have the urge to commit Zina. Know that that is your level right now. Meaning he's hopeful he knows he went for that.

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

Once the possibility it's a possible sell it for him. Some people may never at all think of that shape on his attack now is It's okay.

00:25:13--> 00:25:13

It's okay.

00:25:15--> 00:25:32

Because that's where they are. That's what they love that degree. so big. This one fine if they don't, he'll get you to do it until he starts pushing you into the major city then from the major city to this belief, check where the whispers are to determine your age.

00:25:34--> 00:25:51

And then realize it wherever your gauge is. Ramadan is your chance to condition yourself to have more and more temple more and more consciousness of Allah. How much consciousness what I'm about to give you? It depends who you are. It depends how you're going to fast.

00:25:52--> 00:26:09

It can give you many levels, how many levels are you going to climb this month alone? It depends on how you fast because there's different levels of fasting. There are those that fast food, food drinking intercourse, that's bare minimum fasting, bare minimum.

00:26:10--> 00:26:22

Those people have fulfilled the obligation of fasting, but they may not receive any fruit of their fast meaning a water will not punish them for not fasting The faster you get it.

00:26:23--> 00:26:32

But they did not benefit from their fast. It will not add anything to their commitment to Allah. You get it make sense

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

as

00:26:36--> 00:26:36

Melanie,

00:26:38--> 00:26:39

Nikki

00:26:41--> 00:26:42

and yet

00:26:44--> 00:27:01

whomever does not abandon foul speeches on the lawn and acting upon such foolishness, there is no need being it's for your benefit for Allah. Allah has no need for him to abandon his food and his drink. I mean, it's not enough. you fulfill the obligation. That's not enough.

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

Does that

00:27:05--> 00:27:08

make sense? He is in the

00:27:10--> 00:27:11

evening.

00:27:15--> 00:27:18

Perhaps the person will fast and get nothing out of his fast.

00:27:19--> 00:27:32

But hunger and thirst, no fruits. He fasted, okay, but there's no rules. And perhaps the person will stand and pray and not get anything out of his prayer except lack of sleep.

00:27:34--> 00:27:53

So that's the first level of fasting, the obligatory bare minimum, Susa, you will not be questioning why you went too fast. The second level superfast not just from food, drink intercourse, to fast from to abstain from everything that I love prohibits us.

00:27:55--> 00:28:01

That's why it's American about ns and so many of the seller that they say that backbiting breaks the fast

00:28:03--> 00:28:23

the vast majority of the stones or as a woman shins are of the view breaks the fast here means breaks the words the point the objective of the test, meaning you get no fruit from the past, like we said somewhere in America given a ticket literally.

00:28:24--> 00:28:30

And they said that it actually breaks your fast meeting a few backbreaker. Milan, for example, you have to make up the date

00:28:31--> 00:28:50

that just shows you even though the majority would not take it to that extent, it just shows you how serious the texts of the paralysis. Were about this issue that you need to avoid much more than to drink and intimacy in Ramadan. There's more than it's required of you for the reward of the fest.

00:28:53--> 00:29:11

And then level three is to abstain too fast to stay away from everything that you possibly can that will distract you from law to Panama. And in reality this is of the greatest benefits in the fast

00:29:13--> 00:29:22

health benefits I know tons non Muslims I've said this before they're not before the Muslims have mentioned this.

00:29:24--> 00:29:42

Articles and researches there's a lecture online for Ramadan workshop 2014 that I gave in Brooklyn. I tried to cut a bit a bit about the medical the the the psychological and the spiritual benefits of fasting for the medical this year, the first 2030 minutes really amazing things. All of them went unused.

00:29:43--> 00:29:58

And I bought you the names and the reports and the documentation and where you can go research it further and find it. But the main benefit in the fast is spiritual, no doubt is that you lock yourself your body away from being overfed.

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

Because so much food does what? it harms your body, and it shows your soul and the more dangerous of the two is that it chokes your soul

00:30:11--> 00:30:38

because when you feed the body you're not feeding spirit. And when you feed the spirit the bodies have to demand because the screams of the of the central Cardinal physical Ledger's they, they toned down a great deal. And there's that's quite inside you for as long as you live in between your body that was lunia and your soul that wants to go up to be with a lot to rotate around the sweetness of knowing him and around this throne. So kind of my god magara.

00:30:39--> 00:30:51

And so with all that said, let me take the last 1015 minutes of the talk. And let's talk about how practically speaking, we can get the best

00:30:53--> 00:31:16

out of our nobody really practically game plan. But you have to promise me that you're going to try to practice as many of these these are going to be our mobile resolutions, New Year's resolutions, our mobile resolutions, as many of these as you can, so that we get into all of on if we get into it on the right foot deal.

00:31:20--> 00:31:32

The first of them obviously is fast. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to fast Mondays and Thursdays and told us these are the needs. These are the days when the needs are presented to a law.

00:31:42--> 00:31:58

When the leads are presented to Allah and Allah so agenda loves that we be fasting when our needs are presented to him. How do we know that his problems are told us that he loves to be fasting when it happens. And surely he loves what the law says and loves.

00:31:59--> 00:32:01

Sisters if I could bother you,

00:32:02--> 00:32:04

with our requests to follow your children.

00:32:06--> 00:32:08

And it's easy, for example,

00:32:09--> 00:32:11

there's a good number.

00:32:17--> 00:32:22

And you know, just I'm not gonna get into the medical like I said, especially with the doctors in the house, I don't want to embarrass myself.

00:32:25--> 00:32:42

Recently, researchers have concluded that one of the greatest reasons for bodily illnesses across the board is that people eat food. Before the previous Li ingested food was out of their stomach like to file food on food.

00:32:43--> 00:32:48

Greatest reasons for so many complications in our in our biology and our bodies.

00:32:50--> 00:33:06

And there are of them that have said with completely no Islamic reference in the research whatsoever that a person should drain out their digestive system have it or lighten the load on it by fasting two days a week. Can you imagine?

00:33:08--> 00:33:11

To like they didn't say three they didn't say one. They mentioned two

00:33:13--> 00:33:34

and Mondays and Thursdays for the proper facilities. And they're spaced outside they work medically as well. I'm not saying that. That's the reason but why not. There's no reason why we want to believe wisdoms involved. That's just medically. You know, also our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said for those that cannot do to every single week due to every other week.

00:33:35--> 00:33:39

Even though I would tell you to keep in mind that doesn't always work.

00:33:40--> 00:34:05

Because you're left like your your weak human desires or your weakness, your sustainability to do or human desires. It doesn't come nice, like you got to put your foot down, it will fail. And the person that has insight about himself, he's introspective, he considers how his body works, he will realize that he's never seen herself as like a horse.

00:34:07--> 00:34:27

It doesn't come nicely. You either teach it this is the way we're going to ride or else it will continue to validate head down and ease. You ever rode horses you know what he's talking about? He says likewise, your inner self is like a child whatever you get used to it will get used to for the rest of us for the rest of his days.

00:34:28--> 00:34:33

And the one and the best two ways to train yourself upon something

00:34:35--> 00:34:39

is to oppose its desires and to question its impulses.

00:34:43--> 00:34:51

You find yourself always fall into the same tricks. two things. Number one, constantly disobeyed your desires just for the sake of

00:34:52--> 00:34:57

like train yourself to have willpower. If you want to use modern terminology,

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

we should have no luck

00:35:00--> 00:35:18

He said to a man, Are you thirsty? Yes, he will drink at the next world. And he got to the world when he told us companion How about we go to the well after? Okay, fine. They get to the well after he says one more. He's driving leading him on gradually.

00:35:19--> 00:35:31

And then he went on until the cross the whole day without drinking or something of that sort. And then he said to him had Kedah tufan dunia This is how you traverse get past Jr.

00:35:32--> 00:35:55

You don't put things off regarding your development, you put things off regarding your studio, because you'll realize after a while Oh man, this huge obstacle I booked for myself. It wasn't that big of a deal. Once you got past it, you realize, oh, man, it's a little child inside the screaming I want now I want now. Yeah, we all have this child inside of us. It's called the next.

00:35:56--> 00:36:34

So train yourself to this week, if you absolutely can't. Because the reason I said that is one week on one week off, the one week off will leak and you sometimes jump back on one week. Like if you're not consistent in the first day you miss out on going to the gym, and usually you fall apart for the rest of the stop using your membership at that point. Right? You know, this is true. If you absolutely cannot for medical reasons, or for granted graduations, gradual progress reasons, three days a month, as the province will allow us to fast the 13th 14th 15th the white days of the lunar month, and we have

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

less than

00:36:37--> 00:36:51

a month and a half to try to fast, you know two sets of three. And he said to us, my Lord was so great, that whomever fast three days in a month, Allah gives them the reward with fasting the entire month.

00:36:53--> 00:36:54

What to do,

00:36:56--> 00:37:05

and think about it from another angle three days a month. And if every deed is worth 10 times as much three times 10 is 130 days, right up

00:37:07--> 00:37:08

to this is the first

00:37:12--> 00:37:27

this will prepare you for the multiple online and you know what it's gonna do. Oh, so last point about fasting, it's gonna train you that you don't start at the beginning of Milan, your acts, whatever they may be, and end at the end of a loved one who's many of us are like,

00:37:29--> 00:37:36

like, you know how when you miss a slot, you have to pray for, like make up your compensate.

00:37:37--> 00:37:54

Some people do that after Ramadan, like they, I haven't committed sins for an entire month, I have to make up for those things after my lead is over now. Like our motto is the whole budget, the pause button, we see that I'm alone is not the pause button. That is supposed to be the executive budget and

00:37:55--> 00:38:01

the new system are going on. The ways to get yourself to do that is to start the formula.

00:38:03--> 00:38:09

So you're not bound. We will never succeed as individuals or as a human. When we only worship.

00:38:11--> 00:38:18

We will only become true slaves and remember our purpose in life for this one month, no one's supposed to remind us for the rest of the months.

00:38:23--> 00:38:33

Also, this is absolutely key from a bonus to reconnect you with our laws. There is a regular system and we've talked a whole series on this that connects you with a mother.

00:38:34--> 00:38:36

And you need to ask yourself honestly,

00:38:38--> 00:39:12

you know, there's a difference between a person who prays solid because he has to. And a person who prays a lot because he wants one of them praise like an employee I have to be here. Why do you bring I have to pray? What do you mean? versus Why do you pray? Why do I pray? This is the joy of my days. We have glimpses of the latter sometimes in our lives. But for the most part, many of us we have the form we pray because we have to we pray because we have to sign in and make sure we don't get punished by God.

00:39:14--> 00:39:18

We don't pray like those who love to break the province a little lower. I

00:39:19--> 00:39:34

would extend these prayers whenever he could. Whenever there wasn't a child crying whenever there was a chimera behind him. in Ramadan he would lengthen his prayers. Tara Lee is called Tara which means according some scholars

00:39:35--> 00:39:38

what where does that come from that word? You know?

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

What is Tara we mean?

00:39:48--> 00:39:49

What does that mean?

00:39:54--> 00:40:00

It means alternating wrists. You know why? Because the profits of

00:40:00--> 00:40:20

Vallejo said that this was them. That the robot, this is when you have those nice long, intimate conversations with Alma. That's when you lengthen it even more. That's when you take your time even more and enjoy what you're doing. Realize where you're standing. No has said this speech in front of your faces your brain.

00:40:21--> 00:40:33

So because of that, in order for them to be able to do that they would alternate interests, they would respond one leg and then rest on another leg. That's how long they would stand.

00:40:35--> 00:41:22

And so that's a training course at the very least, tap into your Sala Are you enjoying it or not? Do you run away from your life to your Fallout or not? It's a chance to rejuvenate your spirituality, solid, reconnecting with your creators from connection Salas pulling out of work on a hot summer day and resting in the shade a little bit. Without it your spirit dries up and cracks with this never ending pursuit of your physical pleasures, it's a chance to pull out of the rat race the never ending race of life or the spinning machine that we're in the in the out. Do you feel that the waters solid and if you do then you're solid will be your greatest deterrent against aggression with

00:41:22--> 00:41:27

others against wrongdoing in the world against yourself against human crime, all of them

00:41:29--> 00:41:31

reconnect with your soul.

00:41:32--> 00:41:34

The third thing I'm learning three four minutes

00:41:39--> 00:41:40

is

00:41:42--> 00:41:47

connected part and parcel of solid the most enjoyable part of the solid recitation of the Quran

00:41:50--> 00:42:33

that's that's you connecting with Allah subhana wa Tada, this is these are this is you listening to one of the one speaking from the throne. As we said last night, you know, we're we're in the age of connection where the age of telecommunications we're in the age of technology, we're in the age that your cousins in the middle of the farm, why this stream in your country connect with you in an instant using WhatsApp. Right? Right, the wrong. He's sitting on a very bad cow and he's talking to you on a cell phone. And you're in Times Square. Isn't this the agent? We're so connected to everybody. And we've become disconnected from the one who made us the one who created us. We go to

00:42:33--> 00:42:44

sleep at night with this thing on our pillows. We disconnected with our families because of our phones. This is supposed to be a blessing to humanity, not a destruction of the human race.

00:42:45--> 00:43:13

people enter the bathroom and say, Oh wait, I forgot my food. Right? It goes back out to get his phone so he can finish his coffee and reading his magazine on the toilet. He can't do without it. You wake up in the morning you check your phone. I'm guilty as well, right? But this cannot be your phone should help you connect with Allah and connect with those that are not wanting to connect to it. It shouldn't be an interference

00:43:14--> 00:43:27

if your phone is always in your hands, and it is taking pictures of the meal before you take it and upload it. And this wedding in that car and this joke in that post

00:43:28--> 00:43:29

downloader

00:43:30--> 00:43:38

make a promise right now that you're going to read one idea every single day with its meaning and think about

00:43:40--> 00:43:47

learn how to recite the if you have to learn how to recite them. That is such a blessing. You know when I was

00:43:50--> 00:43:54

a decade, we've made the foreign easy to remember is anyone willing to remember?

00:43:56--> 00:43:58

Listen carefully. He says

00:44:03--> 00:44:03

Mr. Faraj,

00:44:07--> 00:44:12

if Allah hadn't made it easy, had not made it easy for

00:44:13--> 00:44:37

them sons of Adam, to repeat his words with their tongues, like how does that even work? How can we be so blessed? To repeat the words of the Creator we shouldn't be able to have not Allah made it easy for it to be recited on the words of the children of Adam. None of the creation would have been able to utter the words of the great

00:44:39--> 00:44:40

the words of our lives. So just

00:44:41--> 00:44:55

recite the I have to recite it in Arabic, it's not for Adam, it's not Arabic. Even if you're struggling, the reward is double. This road recital as it says that the rotary struggle, your stuttering

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

and then read the meanings. Nobody loses

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

You must know the person is free will say haha. I don't know. They will see mad that

00:45:09--> 00:45:22

you didn't know and you didn't? You didn't read it was there read never never that sense of you have you have to make this a part of the DVD now reciting the words of a lot of articles I

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

don't think

00:45:26--> 00:45:27

the time is up.

00:45:29--> 00:45:44

Number one a food resolution. You know some of us don't wait to read to make up the stuff we missed out on and move on. Some of us eat at night to make up for the hours that we didn't eat in the day. Some of us actually gained weight and something's wrong.

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

How can that be?

00:45:48--> 00:45:50

Our hearts are supposed to soften and

00:45:51--> 00:45:55

they will not soften forget our bodies when the stomach is full.

00:45:57--> 00:45:57

You don't

00:45:58--> 00:45:59

know what he was asked.

00:46:02--> 00:46:08

They actually can have heart melt on a full stomach. He said I can't see how that's possible. How can that be?

00:46:09--> 00:46:16

How can that be? You're supposed to eat to live not live to eat? Yes.

00:46:17--> 00:46:24

Meaning eating is supposed to give you energy. If you're eating so much that it's tiring you there's something very wrong.

00:46:27--> 00:46:59

You know, even in you know in modern science, they say you don't forget the organic discussion or anything else. Just the caloric intake, how much calories we take in. They say this whole 2000 calorie a day diet defined the back of everything. They said this is garbage. This was pushed up to 2000 by the people that want to sell their products, you don't need 2000 calories and I'm guilty I know as well. But we don't need 2000 calories for energy every single day.

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

This is bogus. unfounded medically, biologically,

00:47:06--> 00:47:07

you name it.

00:47:09--> 00:47:22

I've heard this from doctors in sleep medicine that talk about sleep disorders. I've heard this from nutritionists. I've heard this from psychiatrists that deal with all these complications. They've told me the same facts over and over again.

00:47:25--> 00:47:30

And the prophets of Allah Marlena said before anybody who says my mother and knew either no we are and

00:47:32--> 00:47:36

the human being never feels that container worse for him to decide.

00:47:41--> 00:47:49

It's enough for the son of Adam regarding his food, a few morsels to record his back mean to help him stand to give him strength.

00:47:56--> 00:48:04

If there's no way around it, then a third for his food, a third fruits drink and a third foods breathing.

00:48:06--> 00:48:08

You know when you get up from the dinner and you can't breathe?

00:48:10--> 00:48:26

That's a problem. Meaning what does that mean? You're not supposed to eat until you're hungry and when you eat as my father telling me and when you eat you don't eat to your Phil. Phil means there's no more breathing. What do you mean Phil? What about the oxygen?

00:48:27--> 00:48:31

This is very wrong. This is upside down. Understanding

00:48:33--> 00:48:34

and Philemon

00:48:37--> 00:48:39

used to say hustle attorney to proceed

00:48:40--> 00:48:45

to trial does that make your hearts rock hard?

00:48:47--> 00:48:50

capital? Blimey, Catherine kelaniya.

00:48:52--> 00:48:59

talking too much. Those are the easiest in lots of cities and eating too much the easiest inlet for you to wither away in your heart to die.

00:49:00--> 00:49:09

And I would say be careful about being obese for obesity opens the door to shape on and drags you down from being able to stand in front of our humanity

00:49:11--> 00:49:14

and the biggest gateway to the fight disease upon your physical body.

00:49:16--> 00:49:30

And the last thing I want to say is to increase as part of your robot's resolution, make time lots of time recurring, repeated time to make lots of fall to seek forgiveness. Our profits have a mother

00:49:31--> 00:49:33

who did not need this

00:49:34--> 00:49:40

would make 70 to 100 calls a day who says she's willing

00:49:41--> 00:49:42

to

00:49:43--> 00:49:59

give me and accept my repentance. We ended our squad I was supposed to say souring Samaniego Stubblefield love as we say without thinking no you need to think about what you're saying. We are in need of this because even our needs are thought

00:50:02--> 00:50:09

I need to I have to close the first of the take notice a lot. So this is

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

our shop.

00:50:12--> 00:50:26

And those are the angels that carry a throne of Allah. You said before that we have the OB they celebrate the praise of their Lord will be known as he he and they believe in him. These angels are believers were selfish.

00:50:28--> 00:50:32

And they seek forgiveness. For those that believe.

00:50:33--> 00:50:38

The angels have no cities, and so they live. They celebrate the grace of Allah.

00:50:41--> 00:50:48

The human being has sins, so he's supposed to seek forgiveness more than he makes this view, you understand?

00:50:49--> 00:50:51

And so this is what my channel

00:51:00--> 00:51:16

seller would not be a Punisher of them so long as they're seeking forgiveness. If not, there is two things stopping the punishment, the prophets of Allah. seeking forgiveness, he said the prophet SAW Selim is gone and only seeking forgiveness remains nothing.

00:51:18--> 00:51:19

We have to

00:51:20--> 00:51:25

And lastly, the Hadith that was narrated by an assailant imagine from our

00:51:27--> 00:51:34

he said that the prophets of Allah or an angel asst said, Buddha manufacture the feedstock effectively still found give me

00:51:36--> 00:51:44

glad tidings congratulations to the person that finds in His Book of Records much stiffer.

00:51:46--> 00:52:00

The needs are not going to be enough to understand, picture that image day in and day out. How happy would you be when you finally get your book, and you're gonna find that you've had enough to make up.

00:52:01--> 00:52:09

So see and see it with certainty from your heart, knowing who you're speaking to end knowing how bad you need, and we are lost

00:52:11--> 00:52:20

so badly and enable us to step into one on the right foot having prepared for it correctly and enable us to take from it that will carry us throughout the year.

00:52:27--> 00:52:27

corps

00:52:31--> 00:52:32

I want to donate
