Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh my brothers and sisters, Ramadan is going by so quickly has your life changed? Have you taken this month seriously yet before you know it, it's going to come to an end. And this may just be the last Ramadan that you and I are witnessing. So the primary aim is to achieve God consciousness to achieve tekoa and to achieve the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala so it's important for us to constantly ask Allah's forgiveness every day. One of the most blessing times that you could actually call out to Allah is the time of Soho. That is the time the last third of the night, the time of the head Jude, the time just before the federal Alon is called.

00:00:47--> 00:01:31

And at this particular time the Hadith says Yan Zilla who Tabata quwata illa Illa sama it dounia Kula elating hain abacha sudo laden Hill fire kulu helminth aiming for a tuba la wilhelmine mustafina involve your Allah wa Hellman Sir alienvault aglia who Allah Almighty descends to the lowest heavens in a manner that is befitting His Majesty. And he calls out when the last third of the night remains, he calls out saying is there anyone seeking forgiveness that I may forgive him? Is there anyone who is repenting that I can accept the repentance? And is there anyone asking me anything that I can give them? Now the good thing about Ramadan is we're mostly awake at the time

00:01:31--> 00:02:17

for so hold in order to eat the pre fast meal. And that time we don't realize that actually, we should be also seizing the opportunity to do two more things. Number one is to call out to Allah with your needs because Allah is calling out at that time, answer Allah to say, Yes, I am the one who needs I'm the one who's repenting. I'm the one who's seeking forgiveness, that would definitely be a bonus. And together with that, the second thing is, it is the time of tahajjud which is the best prayer after the fall of prayer and the witr This is the best in terms of the voluntary prayers and the prophets I seldom used to read it's quite regularly. If you were to look at what you can do

00:02:17--> 00:02:27

to earn the pleasure of Allah. He mentions in the Quran in surah, to such depth that the Jaffa gernon Bomani Mahajan, a their own out of Hong Kong.

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

Welcome, amin,

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

upon whom

00:02:34--> 00:02:50

Pico Allah speaks of those men, and those people who live in up their homes with the remembrance of Allah and those whom Allah loves one of their qualities is their sides forsake their beddings at night,

00:02:51--> 00:03:37

they call out to Allah with hope, and with fear, fearing his punishment and hoping in his mercy, and they spend a lot from what Allah has given them. They spend in good causes, they look after people, they take care of the needs of others, financial and monetary, and Allah takes care of them. Subhan Allah so one of the qualities here is you must forsake your bedding for the pleasure of Allah. Look at Ramadan, we forsake our bedding for the pleasure of our bellies. Yes, that is quite true, where we actually forsake our beddings in order to get up to have the pre, the pre fast meal known as the suhoor, or the theory. And yes, that's a sooner indeed. But it's to do with our bellies with our

00:03:37--> 00:04:17

stomachs. How many of us would be prepared to get up on an ordinary night where we're not even going to be fasting outside of Ramadan for the pleasure of Allah in order to call out to Him and to actually seek His forgiveness. So that is the blessing time, let's try and make it a habit. Let's promise Allah once a week, twice a week, whatever we can, once a month, we can get up for Salah tahajjud just for the sake of Allah, and we will be able to increase it and to get closeness to Allah with the sooner and the nephila which means that which was practiced by the process alone, but it's not compulsory, and that which is totally voluntary. So my brothers and sisters, these are some

00:04:17--> 00:04:55

really really good reminders to say, let's use this month of Ramadan to give as well to turn to Allah when you give someone Allah will give you we've said it before I repeat it, Allah says in Hadith, Pudsey, and fake Yebin Adama onfi colic spend Oh son of Adam, I will spend on you. Which means when you give I will give you you learn to look after others I will look after you Subhana Allah you have mercy on others, I will have mercy on you. All those are part of the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Salem weigh in he explains what Allah has said. Now my brothers and sisters, Surely this is a month of

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

rejuvenating amount of revitalizing

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

A month of re kindling the relationship with Allah, a month of building on what we've done already a month of resetting, with our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala a month of forgiveness, a month of the Quran, a month of peace and tranquility, the tranquility of the heart and the soul and the mind to begin with. And this comes about by listening to the Quran by listening and reading and trying to look at the meanings and understand and by being calm when someone deals with you. The prophets are seldom says when a person is fasting, if someone were to swear you or shout you, you should just say I'm fasting. He says but you yourself should never be vulgar and abusive, especially

00:05:46--> 00:06:26

when you are fasting. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a good understanding. Now, during this month also it's important to listen to reminders that will keep bringing you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and don't become tired of them because one day someone is going to say something that will change your life by the sake or by that by the pleasure of Allah by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala Your life will change by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala and if you keep listening to things one day that will get to your ears which will really change you and you will never regret. Remember we should be coming becoming better as time passes not worse. Her Masha Allah

00:06:26--> 00:06:53

tabarrok Allah so my brothers and sisters These are a few words I thought I'd share with you today just to boost you a little bit and myself and to give us that reminder that Ramadan is ticking away. Every night is a night where Allah writes the names of those who are granted freedom from hellfire. At least one of these nights My name should be on there. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all goodness Apollo, Callie Heather was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
