really much Oh feels that they are if they account so in order to be the last panel that

00:28:50--> 00:29:32

you know we think about the important parts of that everyone has things on your mind. I know someone is planning a wedding. I know someone yet is starting a career. Someone is thinking about retiring with my family issues money to do or thinking or planning those are important things are part of life. But anyway, I had one real objective is good. That's that's really what counts. And if the the only currency that matters, good deeds bad. It's that's what it comes down to good these bad deeds. simple equation. The good deeds are more to go to China and Java are all of us again, cost efficient. All of us have done enough to get to Jana, who is an EU feels of that enough.

00:29:34--> 00:29:38

Nobody feels and that's come to audit that.

00:29:41--> 00:29:59

I don't know what that is. Some of them in our alums thought you would keep the ScripTalk to remind the Sahaba to remind them and remind us that now this what is coming upon us is a month where everybody can achieve gender. Doesn't matter how far behind you are in the race. How freeing your good deeds are

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

How many of bad deeds are this is in 30 days, you can fix a lifetime of 90 years of security fix in

00:30:08--> 00:30:11

30 days, it's an opportunity for everybody.

00:30:12--> 00:30:13

That is what.

00:30:16--> 00:30:46

And therefore 100 Tala has allotted this a number of Ramadan for each and every one of us. Some of us have a number of years 5060 Ramadan's and you need to just get one of them properly. You just need to get one of them that is you know, hits the target and insha Allah you can secure your Jana, and we don't I mean, I mean, but we don't know how many we have left. In fact, we don't know if we've used them up already. And what then this coming Ramadan in two weeks inshallah has not been decreed for us. But we hope and make dua that we get.

00:30:47--> 00:30:57

To make you understand to make me understand one day of Ramadan fasting is greater in value than fasting an entire lifetime every single day of your life. One day of Ramadan fasting,

00:30:58--> 00:31:15

the NABI Salam reminds us that in Ramadan, there are multiple avenues. We every single sin of the last 3040 5060 90 years of your life can be forgiven. The same way we get that feeling of I get to Arafa

00:31:17--> 00:31:53

I'll give all my sins forgiven. Ramadan has that same same ability. We were forced the month with iman. We were ever forced the month with iman and hope for Allah and he would be fast with sincerity and Allah will make Salah and you know it's beautiful that maybe some didn't give a number of rockers, you need to make 1000 records of Salah it is just to be in that month increase in your Salah with sincerity. And if a month is too long, 30 days is too much to be consistently sincere when at least one night of later to Qatar, if you make Salah on that you capture that night. Just think about it one night to catch it and Allah forgives your entire life of sin.

00:31:54--> 00:32:25

That's what's coming up. It's a big event on your calendar. Like I said, I know someone here on his calendar is getting married soon. I think this is bigger than his marriage. This is bigger than any you know this is this is eternal salvation coming up. And therefore we need to be in the best frame of mind. And so the starting point of getting the most of Ramadan is to really understand what Allah has given us than at least Islam use the analogy he said the doors of Jannah are open and the doors of Jahannam are closed. What that means is if every company said

00:32:26--> 00:33:04

we would say for the next 30 days the stock is free, you can take as much as you want. And as much as you can take that to you the bank said the vault is open as much money you can take this for you you only have 30 days make sure you can't get make it account. Allah is saying the door of Jana is open whoever wants it you can take it it's free. Now you can have it I'm giving it away for free basically if you just try a little bit of effort and that is why the inefficiencies whoever does not get have the benefit of Ramadan what can I that person is like there's no words for such a person is really been lost. And then on top of the special month of Ramadan which is unique to us. Allah

00:33:04--> 00:33:30

edited by giving us a special night of little other which no other Omar received the night when the angels receive the decrees the night when life and death and provisions is is awarded that night is in the night of Ramadan. It's flavorful code that is not on the 15th of Shabbat it's in Ramadan. And that is if you have any big question in your life well I you know have another child well I get more risk well my health be

00:33:31--> 00:33:38

killed with my sickness be cured. All those matters will be made clear but Allah in the next month, in the

00:33:39--> 00:34:18

next month or so, and your DUA dua that's why we make dua the idea the concept of making dua, in the light of Shaban was I will do as count. So all these things are coming up in the next few weeks. And it's important for us to to get mentally in shape ready for this spiritually for this event. And that's why the thing that will make us really appreciate Ramadan is to ask ourselves, if this was the last one, and we're told by Maliki remote look I don't know the status of your count all I know is you're always going to be pulled before the next one. Make this Ramadan count what would we do what would we change what we do differently if this was our final Ramadan? This was our final

00:34:18--> 00:34:57

Ramadan and that's where the hygiene Masha Allah I think the hijab have because they genuinely know they only get one shot at this. It's all or nothing they get their money in order the family in order they change their life before Hajj and because they know I only have this one week to fix to get Jana some because we feel we might get Ramadan again and again and again. We will not take the full the full benefit of it doesn't matter how young or old we are. This could be the final Ramadan. So how do I make sure that the Ramadan I get the most out of it? How do I prioritize if someone said okay, I want to make this the best Ramadan of my life. I want to get it accepted. Do I How many

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

hotdogs was I decided to doing wrong?

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

Hold on how many tangents was I make? Then I'm going to be my stand on all 20 raka Swatara we remember it was never gonna be so never gave us quantity was never about quantity. It was about sincerity and consistency, sincerity and consistency. And in sha Allah I've done this so many times and I do this lecture get what advice can I give to you and me where we can focus on and make the most out of Ramadan and what is the quickest way to get to Jana? The reason Salam does not want you Allah does not want us to get to Jana. The difficult way if there is a shortcut to Jana take that you will get to Jannah if you can make one little vicar that gives you the quantity of the whole

00:35:41--> 00:35:51

night in Salah take the ticker that's better for you easier for you. So what shortcuts what hacks what advices can we give first advice

00:35:52--> 00:36:26

to ensure that even if we don't get to Ramadan, let's get the reward of Ramadan and that is to make your Nia now make your Nia now and the NIA is not no way to assume over the index of the NIA. That's the NIA of I'm going to force the model the NIA is your Allah I'm going to force this month of Ramadan yeah Allah I'm going to make this the best Ramadan of my life. Yeah, I promised you I commit to you that this is the one that I'm going to change my life yeah Allah I make the NIA that with your help, I will get later to other even if we don't get the we know the reward is there for us.

00:36:27--> 00:37:04

So take an opportunity in the next two days this evening before you go to bed to make that promise between you and Allah. That is the easiest thing to get the reward of Ramadan is to have that sincere need. And it's the foundation that the next that the whole of Ramadan will be built on. That you remind yourself to this is the one that I'm going to this is the one I'm going to wing Ramadan. I mean they get the most out of it. And Allah subhanho wa Taala all will will give us our reward based on our new year in sha Allah. The second point the second thing is off to a sincere Nia if we get to Ramadan, now you have to be strategic about your time is limited. We still have to work, we

00:37:04--> 00:37:15

still have school, instead of family we still have to sleep you deduct all the hours you really don't have that many hours of just pure Ibadah so how do I focus on Ibadah systematically

00:37:16--> 00:37:19

the most important thing is we start with what is compulsory

00:37:20--> 00:37:38

compulsory meaning your Salah your father salah the form of Salah is more important than the Sunnah salah the final salah of the word and acid Marguerite Penny shy and fudgier is more important in tahajjud and thoroughly you can improve so for anyone who's starting if they haven't been making all their works on time

00:37:39--> 00:38:18

if you're near is your Allah I'm going to make all my works on time this person has gone from zero to uncomfortable this person the DV Ramadan benefited them Alhamdulillah I hope everyone here makes Salah in they worked I mean we hope that we hope so. And even if you're not Alhamdulillah we try just improve just get better just do every work on time but if you are making your work on time like most of us when do we make our works oh it's almost time to do it ourselves so we make the work now the last hour or so. Let us prioritize I'm gonna make it early. When the work comes in. And if you are making when the work comes in for the main in JAMA is just improving on the Farrar it remember

00:38:18--> 00:38:59

if I get you get this is more reward than making another target to make the Ferrari Edmo perfect. You will Zakah if there's any Zakka that is is Do you pay it out now in Ramadan in sha Allah. Then if you do the compulsory things correctly, now you have infinite amount of Sooners. There are so many sunnah deeds, we can't even keep up with him. Should I focus on making a hard time? Should I focus on tahajjud? Should I focus on giving charity should I focus on Salah to Doha in the mornings? Remember then every Sunday reminds us after we do the Farrar it with Allah the compulsory things with Allah. The next important thing what's the next important thing to ensure we are good to those

00:38:59--> 00:39:37

around us? In this hadith and everyone says Should I not tell you what is better than sunnah, fasting and Sunnah charity and Sunnah. Surah better than tagit it is to reconcile between people. It is to be good with the people around you. Ramadan should be the time where as you as you increase in your EBA with Allah, it is also the time to be on your best manners to be the best student in class to be the best co co worker, the best neighbor, if you have any issues with your neighbor, if you have any issues with someone and yes, you might really detest and resent that person. It's human nature. Don't do it for him or her. You're doing it for your Jana.

00:39:38--> 00:39:41

If that person is the obstacle to getting Ramadan

00:39:42--> 00:39:59

take it take it on the chin and get Ramadan and get Jana in its place. So look at how you can reconcile, remove arguments remove ill feelings and again Subhanallah we know this when the Haji before he goes to Ottawa he says I can't go to Ottawa and I haven't asked Mark for

00:40:00--> 00:40:37

other people I've heard he understands that that my Ibadah my dad, should my extra hard times are not going to be accepted. If I genuinely have someone that I've heard that I've wronged that hasn't as ill feeling was making dua against me. I'm making dua here and he's making dua against me. I don't want that. So I asked myself, so anybody, if you look through your list of contacts, and I use it who I haven't spoken to this one, I have an issue with that one, you send out a message and say MAF us footmuff Sorry. Let us just move forward. I wish you the best of Ramadan. Someone asked me yesterday, if I haven't spoken to my sibling in years, how do I start this conversation? I don't

00:40:37--> 00:41:14

even know what we all do that but I just know we haven't been speaking for years and otherwise, just us. Ramadan, Mubarak, all the best for you and the family and making dua for you. If that person doesn't respond at Hamdulillah, you've tried that's your it's a great act of Ibadah that takes more effort than making 100 items. Really. So systematic about EBA is your compulsory things with Allah and you compulsory things with the people around you. Then of course there are so many sunnah eBUY that and yes, Ramadan does focus on sada who's gonna visit whoever makes Allah so make as much sunnah Salah as you can, especially the evenings now, again, it's about consistency.

00:41:16--> 00:41:50

The person who makes two records every single night is better than the one who's even though in quantity it might be less than the person who made the first 10 Nights a lot and the last 10 Nights a lot and then he missed the middle he didn't do anything for the middle. It is about consistency that Allah wants for you to say they will not be a single nightmare Allah we I will we I have missed out without performing a thorough with if I couldn't get to the masjid I will make at home I will recite Quran Allah who had or they will not be a single night Why don't make tagit ontology it can be five minutes before so so who I'm gonna make Toorak as Corolla had that's my judgment. That's the

00:41:50--> 00:42:17

promise. That is consistency. And there are short ways of making the whole night to be filled anybody if you say look, it's difficult for me to do consistently by the Sunnah Ibadah and then remember the shortcut to that is Fajr and Isha in the masjid. If you make Fudger in the monastery Tanisha in the masjid, it is counted as if you made the whole night entirely or Daljit. So everybody that says I can attend the masjid, at least Fajr any shy, that's a shortcut Allah is giving you

00:42:19--> 00:43:00

in terms of Salah, extra Salah in the evenings, and really that's the time Yes, in the masjid. We make Salah in taraweeh and many people they want to do more but they feel they can only make it in groups, Ybarra is an individual thing. It's an individual conversation between you and Allah. Take the time, in this month of Ramadan that's coming in sha Allah take the time to make that tagit before before we've also heard and then make dua in your own language to Allah. The closest you will be to Allah is in the last third of the night. And that's when you speak to Allah about your issues and stress and what is that is what you ask Allah for the things that you want specifically in your

00:43:00--> 00:43:38

career, what you want in your life for you and your family. That is where you make the time. So let let Ibaadat actually become a Buddha is an objective is to have a relationship with Allah. Allah says Allah Allah, Quran, Allah says all of this of Ramadan, hardens and fasting and sada is that you will have a relationship with me at the end. Sometimes you can't have a relationship if you come to the masjid but you're not. You're just following. You're not yourself engaged in a battle with Allah. So yes, Salah is the priority if you have all the acts of worship during the month of Ramadan, but also charity, and they are very easy ways of making sure you want to have your Allah

00:43:38--> 00:44:12

every day. Like if you were to stand and you give a report on you giving a report of Ramadan, you said Yeah, well I fasted every day. And I've made extra touches every day either. I made that choice in the masjid. I gave charity every day and charity can be one run. It can be agreed to make a sandwich for Soho, wrap it up and on my way to work, I'm gonna give it to somebody every single day. That's the consistency. And that what am I always use this analogy. If you bring your wife 12 Roses, she'll be very happy. But if you bring her one rose for 12 days, every day, she will be so much happier. Look at the ladies little smiley, they didn't see it don't don't take my word for the old

00:44:12--> 00:44:47

smiling the same amount of rows, the same amount of rows of spine Allah. But it's because you thought of me. You made that effort I was on your mind. I was you were sincere. So every day I'm gonna give that one round some people they have and I'm gonna do these apps, you know, even now they take it make it easier, where you can have an automated payment every day I'm gonna make one grand or 10, grand Gaza, whatever it is, so I don't have to think about it. My bank does it for me. And that means every single day I have my charity everyday I made. If you can't do a hard time recite Quran everyday. recite Quran everyday is better for someone to sit for 510 15 minutes with the Quran

00:44:48--> 00:44:59

than to rush at the end to try and finish your heart and it's about that consistency. And then of course Ybarra there are many, many interesting types of Ibadah that we don't we never venture into

00:45:00--> 00:45:22

We sometimes get stuck in the era that we're comfortable with. Some people are good at hard times. So they can make a hard turn very quickly. So they're gonna, they're gonna say, this year, I'm going to improve on my heart and I'm gonna make another heart and that's fantastic. But then there are certain actions which are more difficult. Maybe it's difficult for you to like, as someone who has ever come and vacuumed the Masjid.

00:45:23--> 00:45:37

Who has done that. That's a different, that's a new Ebeid I haven't done who has ever, you know, gone out and said, You know what I'm going to, to go to the orphanage. That's why we have like the orphan program here at Bronto. I'm going to do

00:45:38--> 00:46:14

something like that. I'm going to do that. Oh, I haven't sat in a class to learn. I haven't read a book. Honestly, I'm going to do an EBA I haven't done before another EBA which maybe we've never done before. Be off the off the Fajr for that hour before sunrise, whoever sits in the masjid until sunrise and then he makes a Tuukka as of salatu wa salatu era, you get the reward of Hajj. That's every single day not only in Ramadan, but you said Yeah, Allah, I've never done this. I'm going to try and doing it once in Ramadan, I get the reward of Hajj in Ramadan. So there are many unique acts of Obeida that we haven't done before. Now is the opportunity to experiment and do them.

00:46:16--> 00:46:50

With regards to so that's remember, everything is a simple equation, good deeds versus bad deeds. So that's about that. And the things that you need to focus on. Be consistent, prioritize the Farrar it prioritize relationships. The second one is sin. Now hamdulillah Ramadan, I think naturally, people give up so we should. And if we are not, if there is no change in our sinful habits, things that we look at things that we say things that we talk, it's a problem, in fact that I recently mentioned that the man who does not give a false speech, lying, swearing, arguing

00:46:51--> 00:47:25

he would What do you mean fighting? Moon fighting? If you don't give these things up? Literally the kuasa is what benefits Allah doesn't care about you being hungry, you were just hungry for the day, you know? So besides speaking ill of people, what are the things that we do and because you know, I come from a financial background, look to your financial transactions, fix any Rebbe investments, fix any interest bearing debt, I say this to the hajis you don't want to be an alpha. You don't want to be in the Magellan little quarter, but your interest is accumulating, and it's sinful major sin.

00:47:26--> 00:48:04

You know, even the drug addict understands a sponsor I must leave my take off for now. It took isn't a major sin riba it is a major sin but Riba is the biggest Riba is one of the seven major sins. So we will tell that person that junkie a drug addict, yeah hamdullah you're coming to the masjid for for a photo shoot. It's fantastic. But you can't do this and be smoking drugs. Now we'll say the same thing. You can't be crying in this hadith the man comes to Allah disheveled, crying and begging any sincere but Allah sees his money is haram is food is haram is clothed is haram, how can I accept this man's ibadah? Or in another narration? The man because the two brothers are fighting,

00:48:04--> 00:48:42

quarreling, arguing, they haven't made peace with one another. Allah will say leave their good deeds until they reconcile. So look at the sinful things. What I reason why I bring this up is there's so much effort and energy that we use in Ramadan. We do a lot, but we have something which nullifies all of it, then it becomes like a wasted activity. Don't let the sin nullify all the deeds. So look at the sins that we do. And part of our Nia is you're allowing him to stop all these sinful things I'm trying to the best of my ability to fix it for the sake of of making this Ramadan. The one that I need to get the objective of Ramadan number four, remember Allah had given two objectives of

00:48:42--> 00:49:06

Ramadan number one, you have Taqwa which means you have a better relationship at the at the end of Ramadan. To say that I have had a spiritual closest I feel closer to Allah. That's the objective. Ask yourself how I feel now. with Allah and afterwards of Ramadan. That's the one objective. The other objective is that you may be grateful. And let's speak so also people.

00:49:07--> 00:49:26

You need to be hungry. The days are getting longer. Ramadan is getting longer it's going to be so you there might be that day. And make sure it doesn't happen. But if you Oh, you overslept pisode it's gonna be a difficult day. What is it? Swakop wasa that's a good day. Because now you know Subhanallah how millions of people live every day.

00:49:27--> 00:50:00

And you realize I realize all the things that I make dua to Allah, I want this I want that the things I don't have in my life, I forget to thank Allah for the things that I do have. And that is part of the spirit of Ramadan at the end of Ramadan. It because during the month, I couldn't just take out of the fridge even though it was the and I couldn't just enjoy my wife even though she was sitting next to me. You now appreciate what Allah has given us. And he will say that hamdulillah for these things. So Ramadan wants you to feel a little bit of loss temporarily so that you begin to enjoy another thing about loss Ramadan

00:50:00--> 00:50:18

As usual time we take stock and we look at all the people that are not here anymore with so and so is nothing the most cheap, that person passed away that person to get to. So we think of all the people that are not with us anymore. Ramadan is a time when we reflect to it's almost like our anniversary. And that's we we take stock of I don't know if next year I will not be on the list, I will not be in the budget.

00:50:21--> 00:50:22

Last two points.

00:50:23--> 00:50:40

Later to cover we spoke a little about about it. And I always use this analogy. If your boss told you in the next 10 Nights, week and a half, if you work hard enough. And you do your best if it I'll take your salary now times 1000 It's payday today, right?

00:50:41--> 00:50:50

Today was payday. Take that amount, you got times 1000. Brother, you want to mention how much you earn times 1000. But if you take it times 1000 Is it a big number?

00:50:51--> 00:51:21

If you got that number, would you work come to work again. Just think about it. So take that number times 1000 Would you come to work? Will you would you retire would you quit your job after having that in your account, you'd retire? Right the brothers in there's no need to work, meaning the reward that you will get of getting a blue collar is a lifetime. I don't have to work a single day, meaning ya Allah I can die and go to Jana. Now, later to Qatar is only in one of the odd nights on the last 10 nights.

00:51:22--> 00:51:42

We can if your friends cool you guys come let's let's take a break after Iftar. Or let's skip that. We don't have the luxury for that. I'm not going to you're going to lose that salary, for anything in the world. For anybody in the world, no matter what someone tells you for that amount of money, it's not worth it. Allah is giving something so much greater.

00:51:43--> 00:52:13

So whatever effort we put in when you get to that last 10 Nights, give it your absolute all those of us who can take leave, take leave whatever it is, because I just need to get that little quarter correct. And then I have my sins forgiven, and a night greater than 1000 as to 1000. That's why there'll be some 1000 months. That's why the numbers might take off. Even him he wants to take it to the next level. And he said I can only do that like in the masjid. I'm completely immersed in Nevada, you didn't make it decaf any other time in the only the last 10 nights of Ramadan, the last 10 days of Ramadan. Whoever can do it. That's great. And so

00:52:14--> 00:52:58

we laying out the the plan the strategy, I hope I've given some of you some guidance, and the end to end of certain hacks and pitfalls. Don't make these mistakes. Don't let a day go without performing an act of Nevada extra act of event obviously, don't lose focus after the first few nights, the moseyed we know the budget is full a lot, the first three, five nights of Ramadan, and then it gets less and less and less. And then the last 10 nights it comes alive. The only it's not about it's not about quantity, it's about consistency. Don't be derailed by huge Iftar parties, good to have people over and break the fast. But don't don't let that derail you and you miss a night because of that.

00:52:59--> 00:53:08

Don't lose focus off the 27th Subhanallah because it could be the 28th 29th or the 30th of Ramadan, eat clothing and eat shopping. That can be actually done now.

00:53:09--> 00:53:43

This two weeks to go. People ask what am I going to do before I will try to get that maximum I'm going to hit all the restaurants that I'm not going to get to I'm going to go away really a few hello we should it's no problem How is halal in a way it's also good to say Allah I know my Nia is the I'm not going to even I can no one stops me but it's my email that I'm going to force but prioritize now I'm going to make facilitate my Ramadan if you know it's going to be difficult. Get your eat shopping now with the bangles, banks all sorted out now. Whatever it might be sisters, don't let the kitchen occupy you. For the men are in the magazine and the ladies are in the kitchen.

00:53:43--> 00:54:22

It's not the time. If ever, you're going to have assistance to help buy food. It's in Ramadan, make it easy for you make your Ibadah convenient to avoid distractions. Some of us, we are now so focused, but then we we don't talk to people we don't engage in stuff we're not going out. But then we are longer on our cell phones. And even though we are on our cell phones, we're not watching movies and those things are really there is no time for any Netflix. There is no time for anything of you don't want to waste it. You don't know while I'm sitting the that's the time Allah had given me the time to Gibreel came to visit the house. The angels come during the month of Ramadan, the

00:54:22--> 00:54:48

Nazarene melodica, tomorrow coffee on the night of labor to call them the angels and God will come and attend and visit the houses of the people to you know, then God has no reason to come to the earth anymore. Why is finished is no more revelation. He's the inch of Revelation, but he comes down in late two quarter to engage with the people of the earth. Now why don't you come in and we busy watching Netflix it's you know it's a problem. So

00:54:50--> 00:55:00
