Mashallah the blessed month of Ramadan is just upon us, and to welcome this noble and blessed man. We have inaugurated a series otherwise known as hot softness, where we will be touching on a heart softening piece of advice every single night after Dharavi in sha Allah, the advice is first and foremost for myself and then all of y'all May Allah subhana wa tada open the dose of goodness for us. And may He the almighty accept this from us. And may He make this gathering and the gatherings to come? A gathering where the angels shroud us with their wings, the Sakina tranquility of Allah subhanho wa Taala descends upon us, the Rama of Allah subhanho wa Taala envelops us and may He the
almighty make high mention of us in the seven heavens, mighty respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam.
I wish to ask you a question. If a noble guest were to visit one of us, what what do you think we would do? Would we ignore that guest? Would we go around with our usual chose and ignore that particular guest a noble and a blessed guest? Or would we entertain that guest? Would we make time and entertain that guest with the best hospitability available? I'm sure all of us would entertain the guests. This blessed month of Ramadan is indeed a blessing and a noble guest who has come to visit us so it is upon us to welcome this blessed month of Ramadan and use this month of Ramadan to the maximum and reap as much as good deeds as possible as it is a season where we're supposed to
leave our good deeds melas behind them for diala bless us all.
Ramadan, what is the purpose behind Ramadan? Why has a lost behind and what Allah prescribed fasting for us? Why is Allah the Almighty made us fast in such a way that we are to starve From Dusk Till Dawn is it mere stabbing from dusk till dawn name there is there is a much greater objective behind why Allah subhana wa Taala has prescribed fasting upon us he himself states in the novel called
oh you believe Gucci ballet camassia fasting has been prescribed upon y'all and also the nation's before y'all. For what reason? Lyla kung fu now comes about the topic for this Nighthawk softner so that y'all adopt taqwa of Allah. So then you will become people of taqwa taqwa is the ultimate goal behind Allah subhanho wa Taala. Creating, as he says, In the noble Koran, one
I have not created gene kind or mankind for any other purpose other than worshiping other than worshiping Allah behind Medina. And then he says, Yeah, you
owe mankind worship your Lord, who created you and then even created the nations before you all. Once again. Now I'll tell the phone so that you will become people of taqwa.
Allahu Akbar taqwa is the ultimate goal behind a lost behind the hood Allah even creating us what is a taco is an Arabic term which stems from the root waka Yaki recoil, which means to put up a barrier. Some people have translated taqwa as the fear of loss of the hand and Medina, some people have translated it as the consciousness of a loss behind them or the island, but rather, it is both of these meanings coupled together, and it is fearing a loss behind and Medina simultaneously being conscious of a loss of the high net worth either, because the amazing part about the fear of a loss of a high net worth it is the more you feel a loss behind and hautala opposing fearing other things
in general, maybe you fear other things, you run away from those things. But when you feel a loss of data, the more you fear Him, the more you run towards him. And I would say the most beautiful definition in regard to taqwa is the definition of Imam even hydrolysed Kalani Rahim Allah, Who says that taqwa is to put up a barrier to put up a protection, a barrier to protect you from the anger of Allah subhana wa Taala. And from the punishment of loss behind it, what Allah May Allah the Almighty save us all from his punishment and from his torment. I mean,
the last one he wants men to obey even the COVID of the long line and he asks about human capital the love line, yeah, obey the law one. Yeah, obey. Define taqwa for me, obey human capital, the long line with us over the long run. Yeah, I mean, have you ever walked down a thorny path? He replies in the affirmative. Yes, I have. So what did you do about human capital, the long one who asks him so what did you do when you were walking down that path? Remember the other one who replies I gathered my clothes together I took precaution and move down that path very carefully. But bear human capital, the other one would then say that is exactly what taqwa is. Because the part that we are
traversing is this temporary life that are lost behind and what Allah has blessed us with. And the tones are the Muhammad of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the prohibitions of Allah subhana wa Taala, that are far and wide, where the devil uses those stones to snag us and make a stumble. So we are supposed to take much precaution and move away from those stones and traverse down the path, then that is taqwa resulting in us being successful in this world, as well as the hereafter. Let me share with you a beautiful story, a story that took place many, many moons ago, a story that was narrated to us by our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Heidi is in Bukhari and
Muslim. The story is of three individuals, three men, they were once journeying past a few mountains, they were tracking down a steep mountain here. And what happened was, suddenly a storm overtook them. And they saw this particular cave and they took refuge in that cave, the minute they took refuge in that cave of Boulder, a big rock rolled over and blocked the entrance, there was no way for them to come out of
that particular cave.
There was no way for them to come out of the particular cave. Now what they did was they were talking amongst themselves and they decided, let us pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Let us pray to Him. And let us ask a lot behind and what Allah mentioned in some of our good deeds, Allahu Akbar. So the first individual he prays to Allah, behind them with Allah, Allah, I am a shepherd. I am a shepherd. And I had this habit each time I go to graze my flock of sheep, whenever I return home, the first bowl of milk, I go, and I offer it to my parents before I offer it to my family and my children. But one night when I came, my parents they had fallen asleep, Allahu Akbar, they had
fallen asleep. and due to that I stood by their bedside, until they woke up and Allahu Akbar, they only woke up in the morning, my children were crying by my feet out of hunger. They were crying by my feet, but I waited because of the love and the respect that I had for my parents generation goes along the lines of these words, and only when my parents had had their fill and had after they had said he hated their hunger, only then I fed my family Yala. If I did this for your sake, please help us and take us save us from this predicament. This problem that we are in the rock the boulder moved a bit, but it wasn't enough for them to move out. So the second individual now Praise to Allah
subhanho wa Taala. And
an important thing to be noted is that this is one of the forms one of the permissible forms
Have tawassul one of the permissible forms of getting close to a lawsuit behind the hood Tyler by mentioning your good deeds. The second individual he prays to Allah Subhana Allah, Allah. I was madly in love with my cousin sister. I had a cousin sister who was who I was madly in love with. I tried to approach her many times, but she wasn't interested in me. But then one fine day poverty hit their family, and she comes to me seeking help. I promised to help her. I promised a sum of money under the condition that she involves in a sex sexual relationship with me, Allahu Akbar, to which she agreed because of the dire necessity and poverty she was under. And what happened was after this
agreement with his cousin sister, he goes to a private place now he is with the woman he's about to commit something that is haram, Xena, adultery, fornication. Scholars go on to say that he was almost on top of the woman when she says my brother fear of loss behind her what Allah the minute she said that it struck a chord in that individual's heart. He got up and he said you keep the money that I promised you he did not commit Zina. He moved away. Yeah, Allah He prays to Atlanta. Yeah, Allah if I did this for your sake, yeah, Allah, please help us and get us out of this situation. Out of this problem. The boulder now moves some more, but not enough for them to come out. The final
person he prays to Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, I had employed laborers who are working under me, there was this one particular laborer who did not come to collect his wages, but he left and he came after a long time, his wages that money that I owed him, I had invested it in my farm, and that money resulted in me in multiplying and I, I do from those wages, I own multiple sheep, camels, and cows, etc. The laborer comes to me after some time and he's late says oh slaver for law, do you remember you owed me my wages? Please pay them to me. He looks at that man. Now he prays to Allah, Allah, I told that laborer, look around you. You see all of these sheep, the camels, the cows, all
of that belongs to you. That labor he looks at him and says, Are you mocking? Are you playing around with me? To which he said No, I am not mocking I'm serious. You can take whatever you wish Allahu Akbar. He prays to Allah, Allah if I did this sincerely for your sake, Allah help us out of this problem to which the boulder completely moved out of the way and they were able to come out Allahu Akbar. There are so many lessons Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim. There are so many lessons, so many motives to be derived from the Hadith. But as time does not permit I'll just stick to that which is in relation to taqwa. Look at the final two individuals. He was on the verge of committing Zina on
the verge of committing Zina nothing to stop him. He is in the privacy of his room or of his home, perhaps there was no one to stop him. nothing other than the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala, which struck a chord in his heart, resulting in him moving away from that sin. And likewise, the second man, there was nothing to stop him from just paying off the wages to that individual, but taqwa fear and consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala made him think that I don't even want to consume a penny which is haram. He paid out all that which he owed that man, Allahu Akbar. Look at what taqwa does Madea respected elders, brothers and sisters in
Islam, taqwa is something that governs our limbs. The minute we ingrain taqwa in our lives, the minute we infuse our hearts with taqwa, it keeps us away from sins, it makes us abide to the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala resulting in us being successful in this world as well as the hereafter as our powerful maker states in the noble for an in mustafina.
Indeed, for the people of taqwa his success is victory, Allahu Akbar, success in this world as well as the hereafter. So let us use this month of Ramadan to ingrain taqwa in our lives, to infuse our hearts with taqwa. May Allah the Almighty forgive all of our sins, and May he accept our good deeds, and may He help us to use this month of Ramadan to the maximum and may He help us to make the best of this month of Ramadan as if it is our last month of Ramadan.
