Salam Alaikum Is it just me or has Ramadan come back so fast this time? Perhaps it's because of what's going on and the lockdown and everyone's occupied and the days are passing. Guess what, we're almost back into the month of Ramadan Subhana Allah. Now I want to share with you something amazing from now, you must start planning what you want to do in Ramadan. And I'm going to tell you what that will do for you. So you must plan how much porn you want to read how you want to fast what Salah you are going to read in terms of voluntary Salah over and above the compulsory fire of Salah, you would you would perhaps get the chance to fulfill a lot more what you're going to read in terms

00:00:46--> 00:01:20

of books, what you're going to listen to in terms of lectures, what you're going to do to expand your knowledge what you're going to do in terms of extra ibadah standing at night, what you're going to do to make this Ramadan more meaningful and productive. Start planning from now learning the Quran, reading the meaning of the Quran, trying to understand it, putting it into practice, changing a few things in your life, seizing the opportunity of Ramadan, to change completely. Now, the reason why it's very important to make serious intentions already.

00:01:21--> 00:02:12

We don't know if we're actually going to witness the month of Ramadan. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say Allahumma boliviana Ramadan, O Allah, let us reach the month of Ramadan allow us to witness Oh Allah allow us to witness the month of Ramadan. It's not yet Ramadan, I may die before Ramadan. And that's a reality. I may who knows May Allah grant us all agenda to infidels make it easy for us? May Allah give us paradise. But in the case where we don't make it to Ramadan, because Allah has taken us away, guess what? You will have a full reward of everything you seriously intended to do. Because in our Marubeni, yet, definitely all your actions are judged by their

00:02:12--> 00:02:55

underlying intentions. So the Hadith says whoever intends to do good and was unable to do it, Allah writes a reward for that person Subhana Allah, so you will get a reward for whatever you intended to do, but couldn't do it. And if you end up doing it, and Ramadan comes, you will actually have a multiplied reward in that particular case. Look at the mercy of Allah. So this is why it's always good, when you have an opportunity to think about what you want to do to plan it to plan it out in a beautiful way, so that you're serious about it, to start thinking about how you're going to be spending on Milan, and in Sharla, how we're going to be making an omelet, may Allah open that door

00:02:55--> 00:03:40

for us as well to say, I mean, so Hannah law, I mean, you're a black woman, and how we're going to be spending the days and ibadah and the salah and reading the Quran, and how many times we'd like to complete the recitation of the Quran, how we want to improve our greed and so on, make the plans from now and start intending these things so that you have a full reward, even in the case where you haven't made it to the month of Ramadan. And Allah takes you away before that. And even if you're you become ill or sick during those days, and you're unable to fulfill what you intended to fulfill, you will still have a full reward of what do you planned to do? Subhana Allah Amazing, isn't it. So

00:03:40--> 00:04:21

this is the beauty of the month of Ramadan and planning for it. And if Allah allows us to witness Ramadan, and we happen to be able to fulfill what we planned, even if it wasn't to the full extent, we will still have a reward and a multiplied reward for everything we were able to do. May Allah forgive our shortcomings and grant us the ability to fulfill this in an amazing way. So one of the most beautiful things we need to start doing now in preparation for our plan is to start intending making Nia and start planning and start promising that inshallah I'm going to do this and inshallah this year I want to do that. I'm going to change my life. I'm going to do this and do that. And you

00:04:21--> 00:04:58

know what, you can start with a few of these things. Now don't wait for others. Don't wait for Ramadan because we might not see it. And we still want an increased reward show Allah that we are serious about these beautiful promises that we're making. May Allah bless you all spread this message far and wide because when you spread a message, anyone who follows what you've said, you get a full reward of whatever they've planned to do in Ramadan. How cool is that? So pan ally herbal Allah May Allah bless you all and grant us all the ability to understand the Time Is Flying. We don't know how long we have to live. People are falling ill passing away sometimes some are

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

surviving the majority of

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

But we don't know. Allah has prescribed and written and destined the time that we're going to be leaving this earth for better for greener pastures, basically, for a better place. And we don't know when that's going to be, but inshallah a true believer looks forward to that trip akula Kohli had I was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
