Then what they require that they ever eat in the day for eat, you want to have eat lunch or supper with your family. If you have enough food for yourself and your family, and you have more than you are liable to pay a sucker to fix it to make sure that nobody goes hungry on the day that nobody is looking for food and they never eat. And it's required on everybody, whether you're rich or poor, everyone has the same amount. You need to give that sucker to fitter and it has to be paid before eat Salah. So if tomorrow is eat before the Imam says Allahu Akbar, it has to be distributed to the poor. And what do you get in exchange, as an assistant says that none of us who are fasting is
perfect. We looked at things that were not permissible. We set things we opened our phone we checked into and supposed to do well in the month of Ramadan, now to wipe away all those blemishes, all those marks all those scratches to polish your Ramadan. That's the kind of filter that what is it? Between 25 and 75, grand whatever it might be, depending on the if you're able to give more you give more if you give less you that will remove those tiny imperfections so that when the deeds are presented to Allah, it is presented pure. So everybody make that intention. If I haven't paid my secretary fitter, and the Seattle fitter of the people under your custodianship, your kids your
wife, then you need to pray today in sha Allah as a as a deadline.
The next matter about Ramadan. And this is the real challenging part. The challenging part is not Ramadan. It is post Ramadan. Because we get so close to Allah during Ramadan, and we are so consistent in our worship, we are in the masjid every single day. We are fasting
29 days straight. We do tahajjud we are reciting the Quran daily. Why is it that at the end of Ramadan, we can't hold on to any of those good deeds? Why? How do we maintain this level of spirituality, we'll never be able to achieve the height of spirituality like we do in the last 10 nights but we don't want to let everything go that you have achieved. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Do not be like the woman who foolishly unravels her yawn after it has been spun. So after the lady took all her time to sew and stitch together something beautiful a garment she then takes it bit by bit thread by thread, she pulls it apart. And that sort of Allah is giving the analogy of after
you've done good deeds, you put all that effort in to make this beautiful, beautiful Obeida don't distract each part of it, bit by but after Ramadan.
So we need to focus on is the karma is the karma is being consistent. And Allah says in the Lilina, cholera Boone, Allah Verily those who say Allah, You are my Lord to Mr. Karma, and they are consistent, that unnecessary, that unnecessary or the eternal pseudo Allah, human melodica The angels descend upon them, Allahu Allah subhanho wa Taala know that you don't have to feel scared, and you don't have to feel sad. Well, obviously it will be Jana, I'll let you continue to I don't and if you do this, so if you have achieved a level of spirituality, and you then maintain it, the guarantee for you is you will get Jana. And at the moment of your death, you won't feel sad and you
won't feel scared. And this is the challenge. First, the team come out with Milter woman Turbomeca what to hope, and Allah say the prophecies stand firm, Allah says and stand firm and be be consistent in it. And so the real objective, obviously karma. And I think this is something that all of us need to think about. How do I mean what what am I going to maintain after Ramadan, it's not going to be possible. And let's be realistic, it's not going to be possible to do all the good deeds you've done, you can't force every single day after Ramadan, and you won't be able to make a taraweeh every single night. So take one of the deeds that you've done this Ramadan, whether it is
charity, whether it was some vicar whether it was reciting Quran and say, Yeah, Allah, I am not going to be able to do all this that I've done, but I'm not going to let all of it go away. So choose one deed that you will maintain and continue. Remember the resources, the most beloved deeds to Allah are not the ones that are big and then even huge amounts. It is the small ones that are done consistently. So everyone make that near as we made the near before Ramadan, I want to have the most beautiful Ramadan of my life, make the NIA I want to have the most beautiful rest of my life. And I'm going to take this one DDR Allah, whether it is I'm going to wake up five minutes before
Fajr and that will be my tagit or recite matura guys, that's my touch. Oh, if I haven't been if he was a certain sin that I was doing, Allah forgive us for our sins. If there are certain sins that we were doing, and we stopped it during Ramadan, don't let all of it come back. Make that near ya Allah this thing I'm going to leave off permanently, permanently. And that is the karma and that is a sign of your Ramadan being accepted. The best way of knowing if my Ramadan is accepted is to check yourself next week when we come when we come to Joomla next week, we ask ourselves how much of Ramadan is left? How much of Ramadan is left?
One of the greatest acts of worship to do after Ramadan is of course the sick
states of Chihuahua. So we remind ourselves after the first show Allah, Allah has gifted you the month of Shiva that if you for six days in it
after you've completed Ramadan, and for the ladies who anyone who has sculpt, we have paid unpaid days Ramadan, you finish those days, and then you fast an additional six days of show. Well, the reward is like you fostered the entire year.
So who of us can force 365 days a year? Can't do it impossible. No one can do it. But then Allah gives these freebies, okay? You force it Ramadan, I'm gonna multiplied by 10. So that's 10 months. So 10 months, you've got to lift two months short of a year. So for six days in Chawan, and we'll give you 60 days, that's two months. And so maybe another Nia to make ya Allah, allow us to foster six days of show well, you'll find it's very, very difficult to do that when it's up to you when it's you and yourself. And there's no one watching over you or there's no it's father, it's compulsory, now becomes the difficulty. And that is the is the karma. That is the thing that builds
that through sincerely to Allah, I force it for you in Ramadan, I'll force for you after Ramadan as well. The next method to touch on and see a few things we need to talk about and see before we speak about our end of our series on dua is of course, the issue of Eid, Labrang. And another is always this discussion about Moon fighting the moon was Star Wars The moon was
Moon fighting Luqman, citee And subhanAllah. Again, we just remind ourselves about the way we work with a lunar calendar. Allah says the US in the Quran was Aluna. And they asked you about the moon say that it is a means by which malarkey to it is to keep records of Hajj it's a means by which we keep time it is for us to keep time. And in the time going to be Salam. There wasn't fancy technology, there wasn't even spectacles. And so you had to go out and visualize and see the moon. And some cities would see and some cities wouldn't see. And it's, it was very, very common that you had in Mecca, they saw the moon and another in Medina, it wasn't. And so each one is on their own
calendar. And that's how it was. And then as modern technology even developed, and that wasn't from the Western world, our our whatever, the leaders of science and technology and astronomy, the founders of it were from the Muslim world. And so already, almost 1000 years ago, we already had the concept of we have calculations, we have a timetable that can tell you exactly when the moon will be born. And at the same time we have new telescopes and binoculars and all these things that can see the moon we don't have to do to the eye. And so the Allama are now at the spectrum. Some said no, the Hadith says you go observe the moon. And if it's cloudy, you continue fasting, they are stay on
literal to the text, while hamdulillah there is piety in that. Another group says, well let us use the technology, nothing wrong to use technology. And so what hamdulillah they observed the moon with technology. And you have a third group that says why do we even need to go observe the moon none of you go out and look where is the sun for the wintertime and Margarita and you just simply look at the calendar because we can calculate when it's sunset. So why not do the same with the moon and hamdulillah in that there is also goodness, the point of Edo eight the resources you keep Eid when the people keep eight, one community
should keep it at the same time.
And this is an this to prove this point. If a foreigner comes from another country, and he only Foster 28 days, you can't have 28 is not enough, you must force 29 And he comes to a country and they keeping it he's not allowed to force that day. You must keep it with him even though he's behind he will make up the day after Ramadan. You keep it as a community. That is the purpose of it. We force it together. We may do art together, we cried together. So surely we must celebrate and graduate together. You know at the end of the university, the graduation ceremony, all the classes come together even though they've never interacted with one another. All the faculties have one day
of graduation and that is what it is all about. And on that point. It is the Sunnah of Nabisco Salam, when they eat time came. He did not have the Eat Salah in the masjid. Why because the machine was too small. Unless you remember we is the second holiest machine on earth. And he then took the GEMA out of the masjid and said we will make it eat out in the open. Why? Because everyone must be the the main the women the children and the ladies in their head we know the hate ladies can come to them as all of you must come out and have a together so the ladies in hate would not make Salah for eat obviously she can't make salah but she said they to be part of the congregation. And that is the
Sunnah of Nabi Salam and throughout his life, except when there were some
extreme weather conditions was raining. The eat the Eat was what we call the Eat gap. It was done outside and oh hamdulillah on that insha Allah and we're so happy that we're going to have our India year in the cukup inshallah tomorrow weather permitted Bismillah we will be having eat Salah in Wall Street and several of the massage it will join up. And what's beautiful is you're going to see your fellow brothers and sisters who fostered and they maybe they were attending a different Masjid but
Now's the opportunity to do to greet one another. And so in sha Allah, we make dua that the weather holds. And we'll see all of you at the Eid masala and the timetable I'll give you at the end inshallah
we conclude our series on Darfur. And we see that dua is the special gift Allah has given us where we can change. We can change any situation. It is the essence of worship.
Really worship our religion. If you want to take Islam and someone asks you someone who never heard about Islam before, say, tell me what is your religion about your religion seems so complicated. There is Salah and fasting and and stingier and dal cheese and it's a lot. You know, I'm so confused. What is your religion about? Simply our religion is La ilaha illallah that we have one Creator. He created us. He watches over us only He can reward us only He can withhold when we die, we'll go back to him. It's just me and him. one on one relationship. That is what Islam is all about. To worship Allah alone. When I'm alone on an island or worship Allah alone when I'm in a
whole gathering of people, I worship with me and Allah, no one else is going to take me to Jana. It's only my deeds and Allah's mercy. And so do Ah, is that most basic relationship for you speak to you creator daily, yeah, Allah, I speak to you, to thank you to praise you to glorify you, and I speak to you to ask you of what I need. And that is what do i is. That's why the Narcissus Da Hua li ba da da is actually the quintessential of worship is dA and it's the foundation of our relationship with Allah. And when we ask him, it makes him happy.
When you ask Allah, the asking alone gives you the words.
You asked for something I want this I want that I want whatever I was giving you, you will just for asking because he loves being asked. And no do algos on answer. It's a promise from Allah you promise when when you ask you will respond in one way in a manner which he wishes, you will either give you what you want, or you will give you something better, or you'll avoid a calamity or he will give you something in the akhira but he will answer your DUA, you will get what you asked for. And it has the power to make the impossible come through. Last week we spoke about all the impossible to ask the MBR made.
You can't have kids, you can't get that promotion. You can't you know kill that disease. Do Allah is the thing that has no limits because Allah has no limits. And so at the end of Ramadan, we know the man the person that the man or the lady was fasting, you will do as armster job is answered. And on Friday, it's a special day we do as are answered, and the last hour of Friday is the most holiest hour of the day. So we have one last opportunity. One last opportunity. But one very special opportunity to ask will be answered even after Ramadan, every time there is answered. But you have a maximum opportunity now. And you can now see ya Allah. After 29 days of thirst and hunger and
struggling for your sick, I raised my hands and ask you for your assistance. And so use this opportunity. Take that last half an hour or last 10 minutes five minutes of Ramadan before mothership and make that sincere do as of your heart ask Allah whatever it is that you want and need. And in sha Allah he will grant you we close the series with a DUA and the point of this dua is to show you the format as we spoke about, we don't start to do and so yeah, Allah Who line who line for you don't speak Do you have a process, how you make dua to Allah.
