hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
Allah has granted us. This is the second night of Ramadan. And that's another gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
The more time that we have in acts of worship, the more time we have in seasons like Ramadan. That's another blessing from our last panel to add at the time of the Prophet solo and he was setting up. There were two brothers from an unsolved they became Muslim. They embraced Islam.
One year, one of them died
and he died in the battlefield as a Shaheed as a martyr.
His brother lived one year more than his brother,
and then die.
The professor seldom indicated to the companions that the second one who died he did not die in the battlefield. He died one year later.
He's in a higher rank in paradise than his first book.
The Companions explained,
that died in the battlefield, and this man died a natural death. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Did not he live one year extra more than him? How much did he pray, how much did he fast and that prayer, all of this is written in his only scale. So that actually granted him a rank higher than his brother. So every night I'm like Francis, and Ramadan, every day in Ramadan, Allah grant says, that's a wonderful opportunity, it could actually transform you, and it could take you to a higher level in paradise. So don't underestimate the value of one night. Something I would like to point out, because I know that's a common issue in massage, especially in Ramadan.
People are busy, people have work to go to people have certain commitments, family commitments, and so on and so forth. And especially in some of the night, the days long and the nights short, and people need to go back to their homes to get enough risk quickly. Now, as I said, this is the only month of the year where almost gives us this wonderful opportunity. And it's impossible to find a prayer killer with prayer that is tailored for each individual's needs, needs impossible.
You might want to go early back home, there are people who really wish that the prayer could last for two or three hours. We have to respect each other's
wishes, and even I say aspirations and doing more acts of worship. So when I say inshallah, all the brothers here, we've met a few times, and we've discussed the issue and we always try to make sure that we provide a balanced prayer, throwaway prayer that is almost in the middle.
Obviously, you're not going to get what you want. If you get 50% of what you want. I'm telling you, you're fortunate, and we're very much on like I said, we're very skillful at choosing the time or the length of the prayer. So please put up with us and put up with your fellow brothers and sisters. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, in blue because we follow the logic of simultaneous imagine, with good character, the way we treat our brothers and sisters and the way we treat people in general. If a person has good character, he reaches the stage, the high rank of a person
who fasts all day. And he prays all nights, only with good conduct with good manners, with being easy to be easygoing with your brothers. So this is your lucky pet. Especially Ramadan. When the prophet SAW Selim says, When is the day of one of you is fasting, and someone argues with them, someone quarrels with them?
Your response would be tell them in nice light, someone even wants to fight with you. In Nissan, I am fasting. I fasted today.
And it's not befitting of a fasting person to get involved in arguments. So no matter what happens, even if you feel you don't feel comfortable, if it's a bit hot here, a bit warm here, you don't feel comfortable. If sometimes you need to leave, why not leave early?
Why do we have to get everyone to pray only we pray,
the tone with prayer, this is voluntary. And I'll say the night you need to go early. Pray as much as you can ensure that you can still go and if you if you have the intention, or if you have the intention to pray the whole prayer, then surely you will get the reward of that intention. So let's give it a shot law easy. And let's get the most benefit out of these Knights. So don't distract yourself. In all of these issues that are besides the point, your focus, your focus should be getting more hassanal getting more deeds and not causing any Muslim anyone any harm.
So inshallah by means of that we get we bought from Allah subhana wa Tada. And
just one thing I wanted to share with you, the prophet SAW Selim said love Hulu femicide, any applicable in the loving and the hidden misc. When you fast, there's a smell that comes out from your mouth actually comes from, from inside it doesn't come from the mouth itself. So even if you brush your teeth, you still come back.
is direct is more pleasant last panel than the smell of the best perfume on it
is more pleasant in the sight of a lot than the sweetest smell
Where did it get this privilege privilege, the same smell could come from the first person, an angry person who's not fasting things awaiting Islam by means of the outcome, the ultimate outcome, someone is hungry, the smell comes out of his mouth.
It's disgusting, despicable.
That's common sense. But when the same smell comes from the mouth of the person who's fasting, because of the nobility of fasting and the high station of fasting in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala
this smell and the sound of a lie becomes more pleasant than the sweetest smell of perfume on Earth.
So imagine how much or whatever you do for the sake of Allah or whatever you do to perfect this act of fasting. Even if it's small, it will be so huge in sha Allah put in store for you with a loss penalty if a bad smell occupies this high position. So what about the good things that the little things little good things that we do? That's how fasting is due to a loss penalty. So these are just
cells and just for your patience and for your support as well.
