the month of Ramadan
is an amazing month. It has been,
you know, a wonderful and great, beautiful Ramadan, I don't know about you. But Subhana Allah, this lesson that we the month of Ramadan teaches us every year, that's what I want to reflect upon. And somehow take advantage of the remaining part of the month.
Almost half of the month is over, take advantage of the remaining half, even if you're not pleased with how you started the month.
Right in the middle, we have our team here, make sure that you do your best and whatever is left of this month.
And try to capture
and observe the lessons of this month. And also hold on to the you that you thought wasn't there anymore.
That that part of you that just came out
when this month arrived.
Make sure that that part of you doesn't depart with the end of the month. Hold on. But we need to examine what is that part that came
when the month of Ramadan arrives, we discover amazing abilities that we have. And I know that I may allude to this lesson or this point every year but it amazes me every year, every single year.
The month of Ramadan begins and we are all of a sudden able to achieve and do and commit ourselves to things that
we made all kinds of excuses before the month of Ramadan.
And perhaps I mean it's a complex issue perhaps there are multiple
mean reasons and factors may be one of them is we somehow minimize our distractions in the month of Ramadan perhaps maybe that's that's the reason
Maybe we just follow a particular regiment and just you know, allow the month of Ramadan to organize our lives for us. Maybe Maybe we're just the type of people whose lives revolve around meals anyways, so the month of Ramadan has very strict timing, so therefore everything else falls in place Allahu Allah.
But but I see more than that the month of Ramadan is sherald s and s and doesn't mean to just show kindness to other people. But si means excellence.
We are at our best in the month of Ramadan.
In the month of Ramadan, we discover things we have been discovering over the past maybe this this quote was not is still relevant. You know? Yes, I, I spoke about this in the first shift last week, but it's still relevant because now you have experience you have experienced something in the month of Ramadan. You can take advantage of the next two weeks to make sure that not only you live and internalize
this, this the lessons and live the experience. But maybe you can help yourself. Continue to be the person Ramadan made you
in the month of Ramadan, brothers and sisters not only do we abstain from eating and drinking and from anything that invalidates our fast, right? Not only that, but we do much more than that. We do much more for them.
We're able to be more or committed to our prayers, pray on time or pray in Jamaica, people show up for fragile people discover the beauty of starting your day with prayer. Something that I've been saying for the past, you know, 10 years a day that starts with the FDA is a day worth living.
A day that starts with a federal NGO mera wala is a day worth living.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, this smartermail ordinary size and the solid federal of Aegina masala Sabha whoever prays So, morning prayer
and in the process of sermons implying in congregation and another narration actually explicitly says in German in the Gemma, right? The who are feeling Mattila, that person is under the protection of Allah, Allah extends his protection and his blessings to this as an individual, the month of Ramadan makes us achieve that. We do that. And now we realize that it's, it's we can do that, perhaps between now and the end of the month brothers and sisters, and especially sisters in your own respective spaces, right. But brothers, maybe you can make it part of your daily schedule that you start your you know, your workday with a federal law in some of the most successful people but
they're not when I say successful, I'm not only talking in terms of like career and business and earning that's very trivial. That's just a very superficial you know, way to look at success I'm talking about people who are you know, who are very pleasant individuals, right you enjoy being around them you know, they're much healthier, they're they're at peace with themselves their family members are you know, love them and people around them love them some of the most successful people I have met in my life one of their secrets one of the most one of the most essential secret ingredients that they have
is that they have this daily commitment and practice pleasure enjoy the day they miss fragile in Jamaica it's just it's not the same
you know about 20 years ago right you know we learned this in a school and we we talked about it and in my youth you know I did it but this this lesson was taught to me by someone who until this day right for the past almost almost 30 years right doesn't miss federal and Gemma wherever he may be
and I hope to be as committed as he is. So Pamela says once you discover it is like how could anyone Miss fragile?
masala super v the Mattila This is a level of sn of excellence the month of Ramadan allows us to experience
we compete to be in the front rows to come early. Perhaps maybe you know part of the motive is that we have limited parking allow it but we do right and some people like to be right behind mm they want to be in the front rows. Right they see the beauty in the virtual in that the month of Ramadan in the month of Ramadan we do this we rush we we we compete to be to arrive as early as we can now we are animals so mfine diet was soft or soft in a while.
You know a short prayer, it's beautiful to see any one third of the masjid, you know full when the event is called. And people are just patiently waiting for it. They're doing their Vicar. They don't think this is a waste of time. They think this is a time, you know,
well invested because they are in Salah, and they're being rewarded. So, they discover what the prophet sallallahu Sallam said in the Hadith, Louis Alamo nasm F in the day he was suffering a woolly mammoth steam and in the province of Southern said if people know the virtue of the front rows and in attending or being there, when the event is made, or when or giving out the you know, the event, they would compete over it.
And then and the only way for them to settle their competition, right was to draw lots or to to find you know, a process through which they can fairly allow this opportunity to everyone they would have done it. In other words, they would have been like some kind of competition going on and you know, waiting lists and stuff like that I want to I want to experience the front row.
So we discover this, we discover the beauty and the power of Salah by simply being more committed, praying on time or praying all of the prayers right in masala Russia
we discovered this we discover the secret of Salah, the secret of salah and congregation the secret of Salah in on time.
So hold on to this experience as yours is available to you throughout the whole year. In the month of Ramadan, we discover the power of the Quran. As we engage the more and more often we listen to it or we read it right. In the month of Ramadan. We discover the power of giving
the power of giving peace of really love for the sake of Allah. Right, hoping that Allah Subhana Allah will multiply our rewards in the month of Ramadan being inspired by the example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Cana giordana sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was the most generous of people. What can I do whether Maya Kofi Ramadan Hina.
And the most generous he was some allies and in the month of Ramadan, in one Hadith, it says that he was like a blowing wind, a wind that just blows everything, and its way and just scatters everything. Right? He didn't hold back at all.
We keep telling people, right?
That the month of Ramadan is about, you know, feeling with the poor and the needy, you know, this, this sensation, this, this feeling of hunger, right? makes us realize what it's like. But by the way, it's nothing compared to what people who don't, who don't know where the next meal is going to come from, it's nothing like it. Right? We, you know, as a cliche, we say, Oh, we feel that with but we already have, we know what we're, we know what is on the menu tonight, where we're going and every we got to figure it out. As a matter of fact, sometimes we just would like, we're overwhelmed with the amount of choices and options that we have.
That's nothing, right? Just Just
but but we get a small like a glimpse of it, we get a glimpse of it,
a taste of it, but it's nothing.
But if you really want to feel with with with, with those who have less, if you want to, if you want to make you need to start making a difference in their lives.
And I want you to shell it out to experience this experience, giving not but but but when I say giving not only just you know, giving the money, but actually serving the food,
serving the food, right, making yourself less, because the person who serves the food, the sooner is from the southern type is compassionate, to be the last person. As a matter of fact, there are times where the promise of Selim served his companions, or he had them hold drink, right, and the person who was actually carrying
the milk or the food was the last person and then after him the Prophet salallahu it was it was a very lesson there is Salalah and he was
right. So experienced that, you know, being selfless and putting people before before yourself.
Experience packaging the food and handing it to someone who experience giving people food that you yourself will have no will not have any share of it, you crave it. But, you know, you'll say today I'm going to give it to someone Well, I want you to experience it is a very inspirational it's a very empowering experience. Right? It's the month of giving month of asset. Let's discover
The power of this of this part of our of the teachings of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The month of Ramadan is the month of excellence when it comes to relationships, family relations, right? We have regular meals with with our loved ones. Brothers and sisters the month of Ramadan is the month of excellence when it comes to our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala via Vicar share with Vic Sharon for
the month of Ramadan is the month of excellence when it comes to calling out to Allah Subhana Allah and begging him for guidance and forgiveness. asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for the good of this life and the good of the hereafter ask Allah just to make you and I have those who listen and follow the rest of where they listened to Apollo heaven code or self Rama de

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Hamza interferon gamma Baraka fee Salatu, Salam ala rasulillah, Allah Allah, He will be one of
my dear brothers and sisters,
I will deviate from my topic for for a little bit to talk about the the importance of
being there for your parents,
being obedient to your parents, right. And this applies to all of us, this is the one thing that we all have in common.
And I want inshallah, to Allah, our
children and our young.
Brothers and sisters, I want you to pay attention to this, right?
Any one of us who has one or both, if you have both any are blessed beyond the any, anyone who has access to his parents, one or both of them. Right, is a very fortunate individual,
very fortunate individual,
direct access to gender, just like Allah Subhana Allah chose them to be the direct cause of your existence and your arrival to this world to this world. They are also your way back to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Through being obedient to them.
And in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah does not give anyone
an excuse to any cut, you have no excuse whatsoever to be, to be ungrateful or to be
or to be hurtful or to be disrespectful to your parents. Even if they don't believe in Allah, not only even you know, not only there actually the Quran says we're in jaha Dhaka, Allah and to shreeka beam la silica be here, if they actually go out of their way to cause you to turn against Allah. This is a lot of speaking, Allah is telling us that if your parents want you to offend me to offend Allah subhanaw taala, don't obey them simply don't obey them. That's a red line, sorry.
However, you still have to be kind to them, you still has have to maintain some level of respect for them.
And it can This is the promise of sell them deliver this message.
The promise of them delivered this message and he himself Salalah I think it was send them was deprived or loss of habitat, it did not give him this this privilege or this opportunity. Right. And Allah subhanaw taala told him and told all of his followers to abide by this, your parents. So imagine what if your parents are believers, not only believers, but good believers who want what is best for you in this life. And in the year after. You have to be at their feet.
You have to be at their feet as a prophet SAW Selim said to one of his companions, I want it to be enlisted. You read
enough see what we call a
You read me a corner shahida Sabina you need to
borrow in the May Allah Allah who walidah
Any akona individually her Yamaha alpha thermal Jana. He said to him go, Jen is right here.
Be at the feet of your mother. Right. This is this is what we're taught. And I can't imagine any
It's very painful to see people sometimes,
you know, pursue virtue
and and want to worship Allah Subhana Allah and follow the prophetic tradition and are very committed to their Deen. But they are disrespectful to their parents.
The very core and that you're reading the very sooner that you're trying to emulate and follow
requires you to be obedient to your, to your parents.
Yeah, when you read what some of our pious scholars and early scholars and predecessors getting when you leave, when you read about their attitude and their stories, when it comes to their, they're dealing with their parents, you'll be shocked. This is amazing.
And one of them says, I have I have never made like eye contact, like I've never looked, you know my mother in the I let them let alone I roll my eyes or challenge her or you know
it's out of this world because they understood
the the, the sacred nature of this of this position, motherhood and fatherhood.
So you can't, the month of Ramadan, Yanni I can't imagine this month, and it being without, without you remembering your living parents, as well as those who who have passed away those who are dead, you have to remember them in your,
in your in your cellar in your connection, you have to be there for them.
I don't know what happened, we used to compete, we used to compete and being the first person to deliver the water or the date to our parents
have to be doing this. And this is now becoming a forum people run first first of all just to feed themselves.
We used to
be excited and one line you will not know what it feels like. You will not know the value of your parents until you lose them by them.
fanaticism and them, then there is no inner regret will not be of any benefit to you. So if you have them, take full advantage of this and respect them and obey them and as long as they're asking you to do something that does not offend them loss of habitat or otherwise, you know, still be respectful and grateful. I asked a lot as a joke to allow you to understand the value of that of our parents and ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive us for any of our shortcomings and our mistakes.

you're responding to me, right? Actually, um, we may have done this long time ago, right? But there's something that there's a battery that we can actually perform while we are in a bad we're in a bad mood right now you sitting and listening and waiting for a lot is a bad. So there is another a bad and another opportunity that I'd like to present to you. And the prophet SAW Selim summon his companions, and they responded to him. So you know, this message it has not gotten here without, you know, by the grace of Allah without the help of generous community members like yourselves, and I don't want to stand after the salah and do my regular, you know, Ramadan, you know, fundraiser, I
want to actually extend that opportunity to 10 people here in the audience inshallah, to cover the expenses of the month of Ramadan, any portion will be will be accepted, I'm looking for anywhere from 500 to 1000 to 2000, it costs about approximately anywhere between 80 to $90,000, the month of Ramadan with the added security, electricity use water usage, you know, daily thoughts, especially avatars that we have, we have a thought we have a day called fast with Muslims, right, where we have non Muslim colleagues, co workers, city officials and county officials who responded to this we ran out of space and we actually last time I checked with brother demelza when we had more than 50
people on waiting lists
because we couldn't accommodate them so I even suggested to Jamal I said let's let's hold another one. Right It's becoming very popular faster than this. So all of this comes at a cost right? And and it and as you know we always say manfaat terasaki mypillow whoever facilities something they will get the reward of it. So I would like to extend this opportunity to 10 people in one minute if I can have a shot at 10 hands to two again remember this is the month of Ramadan you are in the middle of a bad contributing inshallah as of Jun, and I asked Allah azza wa jal to multiply your reward who would like to be the first person inshallah tada one?
