00:01:57--> 00:02:36

There are just a few more remaining from the minus signs of the day of the AMA, after which the major signs of the day of the AMA will start to take place. And as we have been informed by our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and please remember, whenever I mentioned his beautiful name, he is reported to have said along the lines of these words that even if one of the major signs of the day of the AMA were to take place, even if one the remaining would start occurring consecutively, one after the other, just as how if a necklace with beads, if it were to if it were to break just as how the pearls or the beads would fall one after the other at a very rapid

The major signs of the day of the AMA would start to occur, one after the other at a very rapid pace. mailmark behind them what Allah forgive our sins, and may He the almighty ease the questioning of bornus let us prepare to meet a boss behind him who diala Nevertheless, the few minutes that I have with y'all today on this blessed day, I wish to touch on a short message that I wish to pass on to you all and that is in regard to maintaining the momentum even after the month of Ramadan. Maintaining the momentum even after the month of Ramadan, ie a long one is reported to have said very wise words. He's reported to have said How I wish How I wish that I could identify the

00:03:26--> 00:03:29

individual who benefited from the month of Ramadan.

00:03:30--> 00:03:42

How I wish that I could identify the individual who's Ramadan has been accepted by Avast behind the hood Allah so that I can congratulate that individual.

00:03:43--> 00:04:10

And likewise, how I wish that I could identify the individual who has been deprived of the blessings of the month of Ramadan How I wish I could identify the individual who's Ramadan has been rejected by Allah subhana wa Taala so that I can offer my sympathies to Him. May Allah subhana wa Taala make us from those whose Ramadan has been accepted by him the almighty

00:04:12--> 00:04:59

scholars Rahim Allah elaborate that it is from the signs allama kuliah. In other words, the signs of the acceptance of one's Ramadan if an individual sees himself persisting in those good deeds that he was busy with in the month of Ramadan, say if he used to make his Salah on time in the month of Ramadan if he used to dedicate a portion for the daily recitation from the opera for his daily recitation from the noble Koran. And likewise if you use to ponder on the words of our powerful maker, if he used to involve himself in very good acts and deeds such as charitable deeds, charitable projects, and etc, if he were to find himself persisting in those deeds, even after the

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

month of Ramadan,

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

Those same deeds as long as he does not remove those gods of piety, those gods of righteousness and goes back to his old ways if he or she finds himself persisting in those good deeds, Allahu Akbar, then it is upon him, he can identify that indeed his Ramadan is one of the signs that he is Ramadan has been accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this brings about the concept of karma, which is extremely extremely important is the karma. In other words, the steadfastness being steadfast on the right path. In other words persisting in doing what is good. There is no point in just turning to a lost behind a dialer, donning the gods of piety and righteousness just for the month of Ramadan. And

00:05:49--> 00:06:24

the meaning of the month of Ramadan leaves us to go back to our old ways. This is not from Toba. This is not turning over a new leaf. And indeed this is something that angers Allah subhana wa gyla because we are making a mockery out of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala because the mercy of Allah behind him with the island is indeed an encompassing ocean. We are enveloped in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Such is the mercy of our beloved maker, and that Mercy is not something that we should take as a joke.

00:06:25--> 00:07:08

Once Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam my mother, my father and myself we ransom for him. He was coming back after after an expedition after a particular battle with the Sahaba Ivanova image of mine, they were victorious, of course, and they had taken a few captives and they were coming back. And while they were returning, there was a scene which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam was witnessing and that was a mother, a mother who was taken captive. She was searching because this is natural after battle. captives are taken. She was searching for her child that she had lost during the battle. She was searching for her child that she had lost during the battle. And she was so

00:07:08--> 00:07:29

worried she was so upset. She was going around looking for her child, she was carrying one child looking at the child closely with closely whether it was her child or not. And then placing the child on the ground. She was so upset, she was searching. She was very upset. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He looks at her and then looks at the Sahaba ribbon.

00:07:32--> 00:07:50

And the minute this lady identified her child, you know, relief washed over her face, and she was hugging the child looking at the child with so much of love and so much of care. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked the Sahaba in

00:07:52--> 00:08:20

the narration goes along the lines of these words. Oh, my companions. You see this woman? You see this woman? Look at how much love she has for her child. Do you think? Do you think that she would throw the child of hers into a blazing fire? Do you think that she would throw the child of hers but she is looking at so much of love so much of care? Do you think that she would throw the child of hers into a blazing fire? The Sahaba

00:08:22--> 00:08:47

mind was amazed. They were so surprised. They said no. We cannot imagine this mother who loves her child so much. The signs of love signs of care is so visible on her face. She would never throw her child into a blazing fire. Then our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said some amazing words mediums urged his brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:08:49--> 00:09:04

He says well law he will law he by Allah. Allah is more forgiving and most merciful towards his slaves than that mother to her child. This is how merciful.

00:09:05--> 00:09:48

Allah is respected elders and brothers in Islam. Let us not lose hope. Let us not despair in the mercy of a boss behind them who are losing hope in the mercy of Abbas. Medina is indeed an evil crime it is a sin to lose hope in the mercy of a boss behind Edward Island hope and fear and Raja will have the two wings of a believer hoping Allah subhana wa Taala and the fear of a loss behind me. They are the two wings of a believer that a believer users to fly unto us behind him. So let us strike a beautiful balance between hope and fear, resulting in us being able to fly like birds towards the last behind them for the island. My dear respected elders and brothers and Islam coming

00:09:48--> 00:09:53

back to is the karma is the karma is something that we've tried to amass.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

In every single player of ours, we pray to amass behind him or die.

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

Now that Allah behind him what Allah should guide us onto the straight path and keep us steadfast on the straight path.

00:10:06--> 00:10:12

We decided to record in every single prayer multiple times in

00:10:14--> 00:10:16

a row.

00:10:33--> 00:11:15

Indiana xerocon booster theme booster theme is the commerce theme from the same route Yala, guide us onto the straight path, guide us onto the straight path, we pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala every single day asking us behind him to guide us on the straight path. Therefore it does work. It does work towards persisting in those good days that we were involved in the month of Ramadan. All of us, no doubt not intended to turn over a new leaf. To leave all of those evil ways we would have discarded those gods of evil and those gods of sin. Let us not even think of going back to those evil deeds maybe respect to the elders, brothers and sisters in Islam. May Allah the Almighty

00:11:15--> 00:11:55

forgive all of our sins and May he accept the fasting to be faster in the month of Ramadan for him and mainly help us to be steadfast on those good deeds and may help us to turn towards him before it's too late. In the last few minutes that I have got, I would like to touch on a few Sooners from the day of aid. Number one starting off with an N our rapid off with the description of the solar just before we make this one. Number one is in regard to goosal in regard to bathing before we come for soda today, most of the scholars Rafi mamula and likewise our Salah funa Soylent are pious predecessors have reported that it is very much commendable or preferable that an individual takes a

00:11:55--> 00:12:41

bath before he comes for the prayer. It is very recommended that an individual takes a bath before he comes to their in prayer. Just as how is the case with all congregation in our iba in terms of our Deen so that we do not harm our brothers our neighbors next to us with our offensive odors perhaps May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all to act upon the sooner Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the next great Suna in terms of the day of it is that an individual especially he will favor he will favor to dispel any doubts that an individual may be fasting on the day of age. It is from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to consume something before heading for

00:12:41--> 00:13:14

solitude. Preferably dates and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to have an odd number of dates before heading for solitary in the case of eagle feather, but in the case of alcohol he used to eat and and that used to be from the animals that he sacrificed for was behind him what it would be after the solid but in terms of original paper, it used to be generally before Santa Clara. So it is upon us to have something and Mashallah I see people distributing days out in the front. We are reviving this

00:13:15--> 00:13:44

morning we send them the almighty reward the brothers who are involved with regard to that. The next one now My dear respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam is to involve oneself in fact be this is something at times, many of us including myself, allama Rahim Allah, forgetting this is not something that we should forget the Sahaba is one of the highlights from the night of they used to make excessive tech beer have a boss behind him because he himself stays in the normal for a while he took me

00:13:54--> 00:14:38

on and the last behind what Allah wants you to complete the the specified number of days ie the month of Ramadan, Wali to kabiru law and afterwards he should magnify Allah subhanho wa Taala by making tech Be wary to kabiru Maha Maha upon that which he has guided your towards what I learned from fish guru, and so that you will be grateful and to amass behind him with Allah. So let us make excessive liquid in terms of our eagle feather it's from the night of eat until the EMA comes for solitude. You should make excessive that beer in terms of alcohol in terms of the Hodge festival. It is from the night of eighth until the last three days into the sunset of the last three days of the

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

shriek we should make excessive tech beer have a massive behind them were diala there are many forms of making the beer which I'm sure most of us are aware that does make the beautiful laws behind them what Allah remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala magnifying him and glorifying him. The next in line is offering congratulations to one another. There are a few brothers who are in the doubt whether

00:15:00--> 00:15:00

It is evident

00:15:02--> 00:15:21

and because you have these days you have various innovations going around. So this My dear respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam is not an innovation It has been reported from the Sahaba with one law hit Allah Allah He mentioned mine and our Salah from the soil that they use to congratulate one another using different wording such as I

00:15:24--> 00:16:05

want to define. So the scholars Rafi mahamudra, they explained that there is no harm in you congratulating one another on the day of read as long as there aren't any sinful words involved in your Congratulation, so there is no harm at all in congratulating one another. The next in line with the respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam is embracing one another, embracing one another it is a gesture, a sign of love unity brotherhood. So at times, some brothers are in doubt, perhaps as to is it permissible to embrace one another once, twice, thrice, four times five times where you embrace one on this side. On the other side, there is no issue at all scholars are explained in

00:16:05--> 00:16:35

accordance to different localities different areas different customs and rituals, you can greet one another for example, if you take the Arab lands they touch their cheeks on one another they kiss one another in depends on the location where we are from what is regarded as the norm we follow that there is no issue at all. But if a particular brother feels uncomfortable with someone hugging him three times four times he can politely decline or refuse and suffice himself with one hug. After all, it is a gesture of love brotherhood and unity.

00:16:36--> 00:17:14

Next in line My dear brothers and sisters in Islam is the eighth prayer which is of utmost importance as we will be praying in another few minutes. So we will start off with a quick description in a synopsis. There is prayer It begins with your this is one of the biggest Sooners of the supervisor the SLM some of the scholars of the opinion that is it is a Suna marcada and emphasize Suna and others of the opinion that it is an obligation upon us. Nevertheless it starts off with me is that I hope you are with me please focus as this will be the description of the Salah we will be praying in another few minutes. Starting off with Nia it is important that we intend

00:17:14--> 00:17:24

because a number llamar will be near actions apart by intention. So it is upon us to intend that we are praying for example if it is for that matter even for Serato

00:17:25--> 00:18:01

the island now whether we should articulate the NEA or not scholars have differed in regard to this I know for a fact that some scholars rahima hula have even gone to the extent to state that articulating or pronouncing your Nia is considered an innovation. So let us strike a balance because it hasn't been reported from the supervisor along with that he or the Sahaba are involved by the Allah Allah which man used to articulate the Nia because after all the place of the Nia is one's heart. So let us intend using our hearts intend that we are going to pray. So after the for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala so salata it is a two unit prayer. So now to the read is a two unit

00:18:01--> 00:18:43

prayer in other words, in the first Raka there will be seven tech beads, there will be seven will be one will raise their hands and say Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar seventh beads. So now whether this includes the neck miracle or not what is the harm that appears the harm is the first step be the Mamta is Allahu Akbar. Whether it includes that or not, it's a broad matter there is nothing to dispute about it, whether if it includes the harm, then it will be the the harm and then six thick beers or as it will be that appear to be haram and another seventh appears in Mushaf Yahuwah. He states that it is the purebred ROM and then another seven that means totally need to take the quiz

00:18:43--> 00:19:20

and the other scholars rahima homosassa dizzy Mama hydrochemical and others say that with the miracle ROM another six totaling up to seven. So whether it be seven or eight, the matter is brought there is nothing to worry. There's no harm in either following one of the two opinions. So we make six or seven technicians after the tech be added to the ROM. And each that we're the man should take some time you don't go very fast. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, but rather give a tiny pause in the middle. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. And should you recite anything in between these that means nothing has been reported from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So therefore, we follow him by

00:19:20--> 00:19:59

keeping quiet and also we should raise our hands for each takbeer Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, we should raise our hands for each degree. And after the seven tech bits in the first rocker or eight beers with the electron, the Imam will recite Surah Al Fatiha and after Surah Fatiha he will recite surah to Allah which is from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and there is no harm in reciting any other surah but it is best to stick to the Sunnah of our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now the second Raka there will be five that means that there is no technically Haram in the second regard. So there will be five that be the only five that means

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

there is no difference of

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

opinion there, they will be fine that means in total in which nothing should be decided in the middle but we should just keep quiet and after the five years, we'll find the high and another surah will be decided and the sooner also the wiser among wiling was lm is to decide to topple Avaya or Sudoku comma first Raka Allah or and surah cough second Raka it will be either Sudoku Masha or Sudoku comma. So it is upon the Imam to stick to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam because if we follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no doubt we are all going to be rewarded by Allah behind him, Medina for following the most beloved of his creation. So having

00:20:39--> 00:21:10

said that, I think we will start the Salah in a minute or two, may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive all of our sins, may he the almighty accept our good deeds, and mainly the Almighty, bless us so that we see more Ramadan in our lives, and may He the almighty help us to remain steadfast and all of those good days that we were busy in in the month of Ramadan, and just as how he united us here this morning and this beautiful day of May he the almighty Azerbaijan united all of us in the gardens of Jenna with our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:21:12--> 00:21:14

hamdulillah them
