Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh exactly six months to go for what you might ask for the month of Ramadan. It's the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and Subhana Allah, we are already in the third month. So we have exactly exactly six months to go. My brothers, my sisters, isn't it a great feeling? We have one concern. Notice how every Friday is coming so quickly. The weeks are passing, the months are flying. We were just in the month of Ramadan not too long ago, and we're already looking at the next month of Ramadan. Subhana Allah, isn't it a great feeling? May Allah grant us the ability to reach that month of obedience because as the narration says way, lumen other

00:00:46--> 00:01:32

aka Rama mana follow me over formula destruction upon the one who has witnessed the month of Ramadan and not achieved forgiveness. So that is the amount of forgiveness if we've passed it and have not achieved forgiveness. This ask Allah, we're looking forward to the next one, grant us the chance to witness the next month of Ramadan. And forgive us in the interim, it doesn't mean I need to hold on with all my sins, continue doing them until the month of Ramadan and then I repent. You may never witness that month, my brothers and sisters, that is reality, how many people have left us in the last few months? How many people have left us in the last few days? Who says we cannot go? So

00:01:32--> 00:02:19

remember? Let's prepare? How do we prepare? Yes, number one is we must be from among those who look forward to a good season, you know, to a spiritual blessing time, the time the month of Ramadan is unlike any other month in the lunar year, the Islamic calendar. Ramadan is the best month I'm looking forward to it. And so should you. We look forward to worshipping Allah in a beautiful way this time, you know that the last time around, we were affected by the virus and the restrictions and in most countries of the world, we were unable to fulfill the tarawih and the Riba in a way that we've been used to. So let's ask Allah to grant us Ramadan, this time, in the proper way, we would

00:02:19--> 00:03:06

be able to fulfill everything, according to what he has taught us, may Allah make it easy for us. Secondly, every week, we have a gift, the gift of fasting as a sweetener on a Monday and a Thursday. Try to live on that it's not compulsory, but it's sooner try to do it, it's rewarding, and it's very beneficial. And at the same time, it will make the fasting easy for you when you get used to fasting Subhan Allah. Similarly we have three days every month that are soon not too fast, the 13th 14th and 15th of every month, the lunar month. So find out when those days are every month and fast those days, each each fast would be multiplied by 10. So you would achieve a reward of having fasted the

00:03:06--> 00:03:49

entire month. My brothers and sisters also increased the recitation of the Quran in anticipation for the month of the Quran. Now why I say increase it from now you don't know if you're going to make it and if your intention in your heart is that I'm going to give great importance to the poor and this coming Ramadan. And I've already started it now Allah will reward you by your intention and by the few deeds that you are doing continuously. That's why the Hadith says hey girl Amelie Medina, la here in can, in one duration, the best of deeds are those that are done regularly even if they're very little. So if you were to read a page a day, it's better than reading a whole portion today and

00:03:49--> 00:04:00

closing the Quran for a whole few months and then picking it up again whole portion instead of that read every single day space things out so twice a week in Sharla

00:04:02--> 00:04:43

the three days of the month in Sharma and the daily pour on inshallah, the vicar, the remembrance of Allah and become a little bit more regular with your prayers adding in that which is soon enough in many people who are practicing Mashallah they do fulfill their prayers. May Allah strengthen all of us to fulfill beyond just that which is compulsory, and go further. So exactly six months to go. We're literally in a countdown this time. We're praying to Allah that He gives us the chance to worship Him in a way that we've always known and even better, and May Allah strengthen every one of us. We value the houses of Allah, we value these acts of worship that we're taught to fulfill

00:04:43--> 00:04:51

collectively, may Allah let that happen for all of us. akula Kali hada was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Who was Allahu Allah Nabina Muhammad
