of places due to Allah subhanaw taala, the king, the master the Sustainer, the creator of the seven heavens and the earth. And we said Peace and blessings upon His Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam
What does Allah subhana wa tada is?
Allah subhanaw taala is the most giving
Allah subhanaw taala is mostly infinite. It's in finite
last panel that is capable of all things.
Allah subhanaw taala loves his slave more than the mother loves her child.
Love loves the slave more than the mother loves her child. After one of the one of the battles.
The Sahaba was standing there with your syllabus, and
they were standing there with Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.
And one of the female captains of war, she had lost her son.
So she was running around frantically.
And then when she finally found her child, she ran to the child and she grabbed a baby. And she pulled him onto her breast.
Danny, the Sahaba labeled to see this expression of love and joy.
Using this model will never throw the trial This is a fire.
There's no way this woman
this woman loves her child.
he hates the
unfortunate part about it is we are the ones that insists
we are the ones that neglect the last panel.
We are the ones that bring justice upon ourselves. We are the ones who choose to take the wrong path.
We are the ones who mean we are the ones that insist on doing that which displeases almost Allah and Allah, Allah, Allah he opens his doors, His mercy is always there. His ability to forgive is always there, but we are the ones that harm our souls.
That's why my brothers on the Day of Resurrection when you and I will stand in front of a lot. No excuses will work on that day.
I lost the ability to forgive my brothers in the side. Oh my slave.
Oh my slave if you can own my slave if you come to me with sins that reached the heavens, my slide if you come to me with sins that reach the heavens,
but you don't associate partners with me and you asked me for my forgiveness, my slave, I will come to you with mercy that match your sins.
But we are the ones that didn't cease.
He sent us a prophet to guide us. But we chose a path other than his path.
He sent the support and to to guide humanity but we chose a path other than the path of
today we tried to mix dunya with Dean.
Today we're trying to mix dunya with Dean doesn't work that way.
There's only one path to unlock.
This only one way you can reach a loss profile and that's the way
his path was the only path that Allah Allah chose that path.
And anything other than the way of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it will lead you to your destruction.
So my brothers Allah subhanaw taala His mercies do but we choose to harm ourselves that we choose to neglect ourselves and we choose.
So my brothers in short, you know this topic is about the month of Ramadan. You know, my brother's the greatest amount of the ease only maybe about 1920 days
a month that the Sahaba used to prepare six months in advance for
the month of Ramadan is the greatest month of V.
What is available for the believers in the month of Ramadan is not available in any other month.
The month of Ramadan is my chance and your chance to redeem ourselves.
The month of Ramadan is the month that you and I can finally get ahead
The month of Ramadan my brothers if you deal with the month of Ramadan correctly, if you give the month of Ramadan it's happened it's right on my hand my brothers you will go from zero to hero in the month of Ramadan.
The month of Ramadan is the month of the believers
it's the month of Allah subhana wa tada you can reach him. You see my brother's every single act of a bed every single act of worship. We don't we know which reward or at least we have an idea of its reward everything we've been told that if you give charity alone will do this. If you pray to Allah subhanaw taala give you this. If you look after your mother and your father will almost compensate you every act of worship has been told about except for the act of fasting. Allah subhana wa tada says, fasting is for me an hour and I shall reward him, I shall rewarded accordingly.
For the one that fasts there are two celebrations, the celebration of when he breaks his fast when he sits down with his family, and he races fast. That's the first celebration. The next the Prophet of Allah says the next celebration is when you stand in front of a light you see the reward of that data,
such as the month of Ramadan.
The month of Ramadan is the greatest month of the
the month of Ramadan is the month that every single one of us should be waiting for anxiously because the truth is,
many of us will not make the mental model.
You know I've given the talks of Ramadan many times. Sometimes it's two weeks before sometimes it's a couple of days before. I remember a few years back back home in Sydney.
We had a brother with his cousin and the girl in the back of car accident the night before I moved on.
So the reality is is you and I haven't been promised anything.
The month of Ramadan my brother's is the greatest month and what if Allah allows you to see the month of Ramadan? This is a big sign of a Muslim.
But the question is is how are we going to deal with the month of Ramadan?
Is the month of Ramadan going to be like every other month for you and I
are we going to deal with this great month like everyone else deals with this great month.
You see my brothers The reality is is the month of Ramadan is the month of fasting. It's the month of Quran. It's the month of Sabah, it's the month of June, it's the month of taloja it's the month of charity.
It's the month of piety. It's the month of Africa of seclusion.
The month of Ramadan is the month that every single one of us is supposed to say goodbye to the world and connect himself to a loss of power. The month of Ramadan is the month where every one of us is supposed to put his head down and work and work and work and work and work and he doesn't raise his head until the day over.
Unfortunately today it's the exact opposite.
Today the month of Ramadan has become a festive month
it's a month of celebration. It's a month of nightlife. It's a month of hanging out. It's a month of chilling out with the boys. It's the month of Hey you invite me in Sharla for a thought and I'm going to invite you inshallah please bow it's the month of feasts
it's the month is the month where all of our family gets together Mashallah
the month of fasting has become the month of food
the month of June has become the month of
the month of the goal and has become the month of gossip Did you see Did you eat did you go did you come? Don't you attack the dog he was on the ground and Muslims religious Muslims now
we want we wait for the month but I love the month of Ramadan Mashallah, why do you love it? This just this buzzing the a and Allah what do you do with this buzz? I do anything and everything except which almost of Allah wants me to
see my brother's one of the names of the Day of Resurrection is that many of the Great One of the names of the Day of Resurrection is the day of regret. Why because on that day when you stand in front of a loss of a toddler, and you realize the opportunities that Allah gave, the chances that Allah subhanaw taala gave the amount of time that we wasted the amount of bounties and blessings that Allah gave me and I rejected you will see the weight of all of this when you stand in front of Allah subhanaw taala today now when you when I think of last
ramadan ramadan Yeah, it kinda didn't do much. Today when you and I talk about it a bit Do you know better luck next time? Have you been there you can have that conversation. But when you stand in front of Allah subhanaw taala and you realize the opportunity that Allah gave you, and you realize how you wasted them
was on that day people will be biting on their fingers.
That's the day that's the day when the young child is Hey, we'll go green. That's the day when the pregnant woman will lose.
That's the day when people will be walking around like they're intoxicated. Allah says nay they are not intoxicated, rather than the severity of that day has driven people insane madness
today you will know when you look at the Ramadan the past you think you What's the big deal inshallah I'm gonna try better this year have you been on? On that Day will Monday you will cry tears of blood.
Again, you about the day you give the opportunity, he gave me the chance and
how can I deal with it? My brothers won't why he knows the value of the month of Ramadan. Your heart would be there in one minute, the opportunities and the chances that you have the LACMA of Allah subhanaw taala. The gates of Hellfire are closed, the gates of Paradise are open and imagine the Shanthi in a chain. This is your chance. This is your moment. This is your opportunity. And where are we run? Are we in shisha bars? We're playing cards with the boys. We're going for drives. You know, it's not very popular here. But come come well. They come to Sydney, religious brothers, they fish from Asia or the late the Virgin. And we sleep all day. Why? Because the month of Ramadan has
become a month of burden now become a month of burden.
Hanging out with the boys catching up with friends and family. It seems nice on the outside. Trust me. It seems very nice. The month of if you invite me and I invite you and he cares about manhood in the masjid and he cares about a shirt in the machine. Now let's sit down and chit chat. We can do this all year round. You know I can invite you all year round. All of a sudden do all the invites of the world. They fall in the month of Ramadan. Do you think this happens by chance? Do you think shaitan has a plan this for centuries to destroy the soma? You know it's enough that we're all correct. All year round. Then the one month the one month that Allah is basically giving you a free
ticket. What do we do with it?
What do we do?
wasted? Yeah, hello? Hello. inviting your friends over for dinner. That's hilarious.
But the idea the concept but that's not the time.
Personally is not asuna personally for me. The month of Ramadan. Forgive me The hell with my wife The hell with my kids The hell with my friends. Have you been This is my man. Please leave me alone. Don't invite me. Don't call me Don't text me are not interested. Leave me alone.
This is my chance.
This is my chance. This is my opportunity.
I tell my wife no cooking
basic foods, basic foods. any food that takes more than half an hour to prepare I'm not interested in
today in the month of Ramadan, our wives get together and they spend hours in the kitchen.
Ours is where you are like you have no idea my brothers. You know, let me tell you something. You know lately I've been saying this to the brothers you know what's killing this woman it's not Haram. Haram is not killing Luma we you know, we really know what's up homies. haraam? It's clean. There's always guilt when you do it. No one's getting Norma halen is killing this woman. It's hilarious things that are wasting our time wasting our efforts. Yes, hello. Not sure I can tell you Tom, but it's it's wasting your time.
Foods that take hours to prepare. It's
nothing wrong with it. But the idea my wife wasted two hours in the kitchen, cooking me food.
we have a particular dish back home in Sydney. I am convinced it's haram to eat. I'm convinced it's how long it takes six women they sit down and they prepare this unit for vinyl.
They put these hours preparing it and rolling it and six women sit down and the bad boy and they gossip and they laugh and they jump. It takes six hours to prepare. Then he takes 48 hours to cook
48 hours to cook
takes you five minutes to eat
It's like poison even a small dosage. It's gonna kill you. It's poison we know. He says hello. Hello is like medicine. the right dosage will cure you. But too much of it will also kill you.
We're drowning in Hillel things that are distracting us taking us away from a loss of
the hula hoop a waste of time and wasted time
wasted time the month of Ramadan is the month where you're having a more interesting
month of the month of the month of the month. Your heart Your heart Your soul is being trapped your soul has been drowning in dunya and wasting time you saw has been drowning for 11 months then this one month this one opportunity bro your chance to reach levels your chance to reach Allah subhanho wa Taala having one shot in a chain you want
to change you know change up you know for the Sahaba knowing that the same thing with chain were a massive thing but today you will I have my knifes my nuts and my desires are far more savvy than cheban that's why the local Ramadan shake on his chain but there's no change in our community Why? Because what I carry inside me
even shape on is impressed

month of Ramadan my brothers Forgive me man Forgive me your life. The month of Ramadan is not a festive month
it's not a month for dancing and singing and making sweet we have sweet stores in Sydney we have sweet shops that are traditional they have sweets that are only made in the month of Ramadan no absolutely what are you celebrating?

You guys have this issue here.
The boys we text each other who's the weakest mm.
White in Melbourne.
Sometimes what I asked myself
as well. So imagine those Sahaba who gave their lives for this honor gave their lives for love.
Imagine they were able to see this generation now and see what they gave their lives for
mention have been of that feeling.
Imagine have been like imagine like just just you know just hypothetically speaking imagine what monkey grab comes out on the lot and say how's that look just just just come in for a brother you know just come through me for a moment. I just want to show you the armor that you gave your life for. Look at its condition look the way they carry on in the month of Ramadan

And you know, like my brothers what I'm sharing with you it's not like, you know, sometimes I tell brothers you know, don't waste your time get off your phones.
get motivated for a couple of days before 30 days. 30 days 30 days they fly by they fly. They fly.
But we because we have no programming we have no schedule we you know, we have no but few people around us that we can hang out get some advice from them. What should I do? How should I spend my day? You don't have any plan any you know, in the first 10 days What do I want to achieve in the next MFF that have been it's just whatever pseudo machine has to the machine. That's why the month of Ramadan comes the first you know the first few days people are praying outside and then it's gone. No one to be seen. It's like a lot doesn't exist anymore. You know, it's like that the poor and all of a sudden is vanished off the shelves. Right? Everyone is gone. Where are we now? Now
we're in shisha bars we're hanging out we don't Yeah, hello. Hello. Hello brother. Enjoy. Enjoy enjoy. And let's say you turn on I don't want anyone leaving saying I will say this. No, no, no, no, enjoy. Enjoy inshallah. Have fun. Have fun with it. Right? Right. Oh, the whole month, the whole month, the month with the balls of General.

Did you know this? every single night in the month of Ramadan unless the Power BI looked down and found this Omar and he had peaks. He had peaks a group of people and says you Hellfire has been made haram on you permanently? And where are you alive?

Everyone's at home.
The house is on the law there are
see my brothers when you're with a boy you have to be artistic
to worship along with everyone else's worship
doesn't make you special.
Why is that? important?
What Not really? Why is it in the last third of the night? Allah is telling us that he descends down to the lowest heaven. Why?
Why not descend down in peak hour when everyone else is awake?
Have you lost the so called the beauty? You must have had these conversations with yourselves.
Why Why? Why? Why do you descend in the last day of the night.
Few are standing in play.
So when there's a few, a lot of decisions
and says Is there anyone that's in need?
Is there anyone that has any you know is any submit any requirements?
When you and I are snoring Allah has descended down to the most heaven every single night of your life. And where are you and I
So yeah, worshipping Allah when the masses are worshiping along, but trust me, that doesn't make you special.
One of the companions he embraced Islam after 20 years, after 20 years of the reseller he embraced Islam was after one of the battles, and he stood there to get the buyout to Rasulullah sallallahu. And he's still dead is watching us now. And he said words I really wish someone would understand. He said, When slam was presented to me, there was only six Muslims.
He was one of the ones who the Prophet gave him the very beginning. He rejected. He said, what Islam was presented to me there was only six Muslims.
Now I've accepted Islam 20 years later, this 1000s of years, a lot of faces in the crowd, now.
It's those, they were the special ones.
The 313 that attended the Battle of button, the 330 that attended the battle other than not like anyone else, effects so much so jabril Allah, he said, and he asks, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it says from our Prophet of Allah, the 313 that were with you in but what do you say about them? What do you say about them? So the Prophet of Allah says to him,
he says, we think those 330 within those men that were there in battle, we think them to be the best amongst us. jabril says by the angels that we're there for you rather than the best of the angels in the
prestige brother Pittsfield
while home as opposed waiting to break their fast
with seven different dishes, and you're measured with only three four other brothers breaking your fastball, thanks Have you been this is how you earn a lot of tension.
The month of Ramadan, my brother's is a very, very, very special one. It's a very blessed month, it's a month that you need. This is your opportunity to reach a loss of power. And this is your chance to redeem yourself.
This is your chance to finally Connect. This is your chance to block and walk away from everything and all that this is your chance for the month of Ramadan should be all about you and Allah subhanho wa Taala for those of you who are working, you shouldn't put in your leave. months ago I have been in the month of Ramadan. And again, it's so hard to work. But for me personally, I don't want to work.
I don't want to travel and I'm
This is my chance.
Have you been 11 months of the E I give it to my wife I give it to my kids I give it I give it to my business I give it to the boys I give 11 months of the even the month of Ramadan knows well. Like Leave me alone.
The month of Ramadan you should be working but you know like a madman, systematic clockwork.
You don't want my brothers
the Prophet of Allah
He stood in front of the Sahaba.
And he said May he be destroyed?
May he be humiliated?
May he be destroyed May his nose be rubbed in the dirt in humiliation.
You know my brothers for the Sahaba to hear the Prophet of Allah made against someone. This was this was very, very strange. This was very rare.
The Prophet of Allah, Allah He never cursed anyone never made a very rare in the serum, some of the Sahaba to see in the machine. And he the Prophet of Allah
sent me he'd be destroying me he'd be humiliate the Sahaba were petrified. They thinking Who is this wicked person?
So they said our Prophet of Allah, whom is this wicked man that you're cursing?
He said, may he be mediated?
The man that lives to see Ramadan
and he leaves out the days of Ramadan.
And he finishes the month of Ramadan and a lot doesn't forgive him maybe
people ask how come nothing's going right in my life? I don't know do you think it's a possibility that you might have been carrying the person for the last 15 Ramadan? You think maybe that's a possibility
but what is the month of Ramadan is your month to shine This is your chance to take it
take it make the most of this month for
the month of
January struggling pushing yourself to the absolute limit but why do you think we have the day of aid why because you work you work you work you work you work you work into the day until that month is over to that month is complete then
then after we've lost I'm absolutely exhausted. I can't I can't do another day. Then
we come to the machine and we celebrate and we think
and we have some food and we have some sweets and we celebrate what you celebrate because you've worked so hard because you've deprived yourself of so much because you pushed yourself to the limit sometimes so these words you hang out every single night in the Ramadan what he said and honestly what do you celebrate? What is it that you're celebrating on the day every
you've been going out every night you've been having sweets and feasts every single month you've been wearing the finest clubs everything What are you celebrating on the daily rate? Well what
genuinely actually boggles my mind What are you doing on the day
know it's the opposite
you work work work work struggling struggling struggling push yourself up
to the last minute
and then in the morning
you know that the month is done it's finished and I gave it my absolute best then
then we celebrate the we asked for
the whole month of increased control when I want I do and when I want I can't waste of time and time and time again under the law for the last
month of Ramadan is a very very very special month my brothers and some opportunity that a lot of games when a monkey is an opportunity and he sees you wasted that doesn't make
so please my money we've wasted enough time but we've wasted enough don't waste this Ramadan don't make this Ramadan like every other other one. Please. Please.
For those of you who can for those of you who care more money, I beg you I urge you all are pcn
if you can do the last 10 days of Africa from the magic please do
it's an absolute life changer.
If you can do the last 10 days of Africa, no phone, no wife. No kids just last tip the holiest lights of the the holiest nights of the last 10 nights of Ramadan the holiest lights, lights, you have no idea you have no words no shirt. No I can give justice to the last 10 nights of Ramadan.
Even the Prophet of Allah eastertide is he's the pi is built is to pull on his belt. his wives his companions knew that sexual intercourse have been nothing. These are the last 10 months of Ramadan. He used to push himself even though this is my last stretch. This is my last chance last night's work work every single night. Stand up the whole night. No time to sleep in the last night of Ramadan. No time to waste no time to gossip one time. I don't have time for anything. Last night is my chance. In these nights there is a lie.
There is a mic in the hall and Allah says one night in the last nights greater than 1000 months. I don't mean I
imagined 1000 months of worship of the law. This one night is better than 1000 months.
What are we
Even in Muslim countries, they make TV shows that oh
Have you released in Ramadan? Do you want to because of this also,
I think they're too scared to respond. Yes.
We have a very famous Syrian show called Babel holla
phenomena and the Muslim phenomena it's an absolute one why people wait 11 months for the new series 11 months
to watch. When am I watching?
Look at look at the hobbies been spinning the fan spinning?
In the last 10 nights there is one night and please don't come and tell me rather which night is it? And some of the machines said it's on the 27th and some of Habibi, there is no authentic 100% that they tell you. Yes, there are indications Yes, there's inclinations. Yes, there is this Yes, there is that. But this idea of all that's on the 27th night, nothing. There is nothing to tell you. This is the minute there's only one way you can tell
is if you work at night. We know that it's one of the odd nights we know that it's
one of the nights you work on, you wake up in the morning, there are some signs that no indication so what do we do? We say by that one night that's worth more than 1000 no chances you take off the hotel nights and you work for the termites.
The messy desert the on the 27th night people are praying outside but you sit alone insists on the
last 10 nights the holiest nights have been
your chance your opportunity.
It's the month of
July there's so many things that I want to mention
on Mondays ever and I don't want to take too much of your time. But I'm sure you get the message don't waste this month.
Go hopper go hon I'm telling you go hog ludicrous have
smashed this month.
Why? Because if you don't
and you don't own a loss, no sin this month than the profit of the last block.
I hope my message is clear today. My hope there's no misunderstandings in iteration perform.
