After praising Allah subhanaw taala and sending humans greetings and salutations upon the final prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam,
we find the life of the believer is to review themselves we find a famous statement woman and a hot dog, her Sybil and Fusa comb cobbler and to her Cebu bring us a fourth accountability before you put forth to accountability. So Muslim, every day they assess themselves. And for some people may sound like a childless ritual, or some people may think but to review yourself at the end of the day, the plus points, good points and bad points, the negative things where we may have heard made mistakes, that person thinks that for tomorrow, I'll prepare myself to be a better Muslim, a better individual. And most of us do this in other aspects of our life anyway, when it comes to business
transactions or dealings or whatever it may be, we always think at the night that wasn't right, maybe we need to improve on this. But when it comes to Islam and our ritual practices, sometimes we seem to not pay so much attention towards preparing ourselves to become better individuals. Even though the Quran is full of statements inside the encouraging us to better ourselves, and at same time warning us about not losing our good deeds. Because you find that after Ramadan, that many of us or some of us, hopefully you hope that only a few of us lose the good deeds that we carried out in the month of Ramadan, as Allah mentioned, sorted for konwar Kademlia LM am Illumina Amylin for
Jana Hubbert and men thorough, we've been forced to actions that they've done and we make it become like, particles of dust blown away on a windy day. Even though this is speaking about non Muslims about their perception but as we know in the science of aluminum Quran, a little bit of the movie Love the lobby, also sub the lesson is to be taken from the generality of the words and not from the specifics of Revelation. So this verse can equally apply to us Muslims, that whatever we done, our lives were condemned I lemma, Amin, amin Amberlynn Fajr, and no Habermann for that massive amount of action do inside our lives to be just become wasted away. And if we become more specific, that in
certain conditions that we know for actions to be accepted by Allah subhanaw taala is oh well in class is sincerity in actions that we do. And secondly, Al Matoba the action that we do correspond with the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. And just to refresh a memory that Eman evidences from the Quran, first we find the end of so to calf the 18 chapter Quran verse 110. Whoever hopes to meet Allah Subhana Allah for yarmulke Ammoland Salah wala you should be regarded here or be ahead. Whoever hopes to meet Allah is planted on that last day let the individual believe in Allah subhanaw taala and not associate any partners with him Subhan Allah Allah and carry out righteous actions. A
moment and facility mica theories are intercede. He mentioned that according to his verse, there's two conditions for actions to be accepted by Allah subhanaw taala. One is sincerity. And secondly, it conforms with the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, a Muhammad Bulka we another famous Mufasa makes the feel of a different verse inside the Quran from soul to milk, who Allah the follicle Motol hired Leah blue accom A you can ask and who am Allah? He is One Who created a Lost Planet Allah death and life to see a UK, US and who am Allah, Who among us is going to be the best in actions, the most accurate and actions and he mumbled belco inside his deaf seed makes exactly
the same type of serious applica theory. He says us and where am Allah Allah didn't say a thorough armella whoever does the most actions. Allah said us and who am Allah. Anyhow that started to seed Makana us closer who are swab or who whatever is pure and whatever is correct, then describing so what is pure, Martina Collison lay subhanaw taala what is pure is done sincerely for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah and that which is correct is done according to the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, so two different MUFA city in two different eras, two different writers, two different verses make exactly the same deduction and that's what is classified as a holy sadhana is not one
parameter, one timezone one area, you find that numerous scholars from different eras different centuries, will all come with the same principles. That's what it means to follow Allah subhana wa Jamar is not a certain personality or certain individual principles remain really well right principles and people come off and will follow those principles. That's that's why we don't follow personality individuals. That's what it means to follow the text and the source. You're following the principle that laid out those people came before and those who come after us whoever follows those principles falls into that general bracket. It doesn't mean has to be a specific individual
who says something that has to be the accurate truth. The truth doesn't lie with one individual. It can lie with numerous individuals who follow exactly the same principles and come with the same end result. So this verse, as we mentioned, sorted for con just to give us a backdrop that so two for con is the 25th chapter the Quran and makansutra because the theme of the of the surah is highlighting inside them
Find that distinction the bar Kalinina zero for corner ideally Hakuna little island mean and zero Glorified be Allah subhanaw taala who sit down and for con el for con is one of the names of the Quran amongst the 25 odd names occurrence at the Quran is Imitate me and his works at them a few salt of seed mentions this is Alfred Kahn is one of the names of the Kuranda criterion, the distinction between right and wrong between Tawheed and Sheikh between good and bad, between that which is pure that which is impure. That's what the Quran is, is making that distinction. So Allah's Brandeis sent down this book the foregone as a kite criterion to establish the belief in Allah is
pantile tell us that which is good and that which action is going to be accepted by Allah subhanaw taala so inside the story find various verses that we're going to mention which are relevant to today's topic about that criterion following that which is hold something that which is good and staying away from that which is corrupt or take somebody person away from Allah subhanaw taala even slightly Sora the individual say, Well upon me, what will put me I took so it definitely fallen kalila look at the learning on a degree but a journey will permit took such or such individual as a comrade as a friend that he misguided me off the guidance had come to me. So in Ramadan, we had good
friends good companionships soon as Ramadan finishes, we move back to the same crowd, same type of people. So you can only blame your own self. I can only blame my own self because now I'm by default, making that choice to now move away from God towards such type of individuals and most of us we know what type of crowd these people are. In a hadith a fine movement law you will know when you're when we're heading Mortain A believer is never stung from the same hole twice. Now we get stung from the same hole many, many times. So is there some misunderstanding regarding this hadith? Because hadith is a movement the believer has never stung from the hole many times over. The the
safest conclusion is that we're not really believers, we may perceive and think we're believers, because a real believer doesn't make the same mistake twice. The real believer picks up the mistake and decrypt. Maybe it can happen. But we make those mistakes time and time again, that we don't learn as we began from mistakes that we make how to better ourselves, how to take ourselves away from certain environments. We mentioned that as we mentioned many times over Toba isn't just to say I repent Allah is to physically retract yourself from that sin from amongst the conditions Toba to be accepted and yeah, Clara and Marcia person physically takes himself away from that sin is a sign
of Toba it Allah's paradise, if they returned it that's a different topic. But that moment in time, they've got that strong recognition in themselves, not to return back to that is a sign of turning back to Allah subhanho wa taala. So this verse that we find that the person's action become null and void, and we pray that doesn't fall upon any of us here tonight, but just we find that to awaken ourselves to maybe my friends or people around us who just thrown Ramadan behind their backs. So we've split these type of people into three broad categories who approach Ramadan, and this splitting is occurs inside the Quran as well Allah makes various divisions in other Muslim Mena,
while Muslim as well many in our Muslim men, Muslim women believing men believing women that we find or when it speaks about charity, in the Masada to Lille for Coryell. Misaki and all his distinction that Allah makes his distinctions inside the Quran, different levels of different types of people. So there's nothing wrong in dissecting from the Quran, the different levels of different types of categories that exist inside the Quran or outside of the Quran. For us to see which category that we fall into, and which categories we should avoid what the Quran speaks about. So the first type of people are deceivers. So some of us we might find that very strange is that people amongst us who
approach the month of Ramadan as deceivers, who are deceptive individuals, and yes, unfortunately they are, as you mentioned many times over that if a person makes an intention of beginning of Ramadan just to be a good Muslim, and as soon as Ramadan is over, they return back to their normal way of life, whatever haram whatever they're doing, that that's what a deceiver is, and made it a *up discuss such type of individual makes what's known as a double intention for sia mobitel. That person's fasting is invalidated. They've wasted 2930 days of life. We don't speak about an average Muslim all of us that will sin will air we make mistakes. We speak about somebody who
specifically inside their heart and their mind says I know is 2930 days of fasting. But during these 1290 days fasting, I'm not going to mail off a bit take drugs for indicate commit adultery, drink alcohol, to haram, whatever it may be, I'm not going to make conscious decisions inside their mind that I'm going to avoid it. But the same time conscious decisions inside their mind that as soon as it's over. I'll go back to my normal lifestyle.
Don't be deceived as people who do make the intention. And a strange thing is that they complete 2930 days of staying away from the Haram which is a which is a sign that they can stay away from it.
psychologists have spoken that a person who does something for 21 days habitually, it becomes normal practice. So if you can avoid something for 21 odd days, you can even break that habit up we speak about chain smoking whatever it may be, you can break the habit because you already stayed away from it. The sad things that we find lines of people on the wards of the masjid What are they doing?
That there's a smoking cigarettes or smoking we speak about other things. So it shows that they don't really understand what Ramadan is that they made a real intention within themselves they'll be able to break these bad habits and become better individuals closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. So we find those individuals who are these deceiving individuals that we find that Allah mentioned once again inside sold for con will call the Rasul Malley has because we are being called Metaxa to have the Quran Mathura the mess you say what is the matter Oh my Lord, what is the matter with my with these people? They have abandoned the Quran riba Imam nawawi Rahmatullah speaks about what is very
basic what is well what is abandoning of the Quran so all is abandoned the Quran recite the Quran reading the Quran, understand the Quran that many people didn't get a month of Ramadan what happens after it.
People go down from what they used to read from, from the from the Quran, at least one juicery mentioned goes down to barely regional Quran. Some people just don't read the Quran until the following Ramadan, or Allah mentioned that's a sign and we're not judging any individual that a person is fasting hasn't really impacted them. That the daily fasting, reading the Quran, now they begin to wither away, or the good actually begin to wither away is a sign that they haven't really strengthened their Eman during his blessed month in Ramadan, and other places that the Quran Allah mentioned verse 101, or sort of Bukhara Kitab, a labourer of the Horeca unknown Lea Allah Mon. Some
people throw the book of Allah and the behind their backs and no malaria and pneumonia as if they don't know. What does that mean? Once again, people say always speak about your home because that's what the main theme was sort of Bukhara is node. We failed to understand that the Quran is speaking to us speaking to me speaking to you never ever approached a Quran that is speaking about Allah in a Sabbath clean, don't approach the Quran Anna mindset approach the Quran is speaking to me, is addressing me is telling me what to do that's when you're going to benefit from from the Quran. That's when Allah mentioned at the beginning of Quran, Allah Deena you may know nebula you be those
who believe in the unseen. Then Allah mentions that these are actions that we do. Allah never said established a prayer and gives the God first. He mentioned the unseen because the more stronger your belief in the unseen is, the more easy is going to be for you to do the actions. If you just do the rituals. Anybody can do Richard, anybody can copy them. And even the stranger I came across someone who's saying that when they were offering the prayer, everyone thought that they're praying. They were praying to the devil. They were paying to shaytaan so they were bowing, they were prostrating, they were doing sujood so on face value, you could think this person is praying, but they intention
in their mind with a bowing down to the devil. So wasn't even a statue there wasn't something that was visible in front of them but inside their heart, their mind. So no one knows what a person is praying to except for Allah Subhana Allah while you're buying while you're frustrating, so these rituals, they don't really mean much.
That if the heart is unfocused or even how do you speak to a person with Melania Collazo will Amel be whoever it is utterly false speech and action via Allah has no need for you to abstain from food and drink. And that is a needed. You just wasted your time you just earn a tab, fatigue, tiredness, 2930 days of praying and fasting and you never benefited your own self. Because Allah Mensa, the Quran in Allahu Allah, you haoma be calm in Hatha Yoga Euro maybe, and fusi him, Allah will never change your condition with people until they don't change your own condition. We do understand that principles change something dramatically, something is not going to happen that the world is going
to just flip over. It's going gonna go to new dimension, that's not how it's going to operate towards the end of times. There's a there's a process that has to take place. So we believe that somebody is going to come and just change it all over. That's not true. That suffering that we're facing, it sounds very harsh, is what we've done with our own hands, unless inside so to room the horrid facade will bury will Barbie Marchesa ad nurse do the combat that Lydia Amarula Allah whom you have to look at stranger Quran is Allah say that facade corruption has appeared upon the land of the ocean because what you sent forth with your own hands, we can even take that literally the
destruction the ozone layer, is by what man sends forth his own hands, the oil spill in the oceans, what we do with our own hands, and then the vices of the sins that we carry out on the face of this earth.
So that we may taste the fruits of our own labor. And Allah then also mentioned the alarm we are Giroud that we might then repent back and we see this corruption on the earth. There's a wisdom behind it, that people then begin to repent back to Allah Subhana Allah, for Allah to buena Ilahi. Why don't they repent back to Allah Subhana Allah. Allah Your Honor, no move today.
If you could do I am in Marathi and Marathi in Somalia to Boone wala whom he has a Tarun donates. Don't you see that once in a year twice in a year, trials, calamities, difficulties, obstacles they happen to inside your life, what purpose that you made, then repent to Allah Subhana Allah you may reflect upon that. So all this is is a reflection. That's what life is life is is a reflection to see, to judge and assess our own selves. So even on a day of judgment that you find, we said a crock Kitab read your own book is not going to be said someone else read my record is going to be said to myself read your own book. There have been a seeker yo Malika has Eber you as yourself stands a
witness over your own self, that all of us are witnesses. We're all adults, we're all mature enough that all of us our own record, will speak for itself that and will testify this is what I carried out inside my life. And the only way to change that record is by making change. As Allah mentioned that even once again is mentioned the whole theme is unsuited for con, that Allah Allah mentioned that those individuals who make a change towards from from bad to good What is Allah do to us individually for Allah aka you but the Llosa yet him has an advocate and Allah for Rahima Allah change their bad deeds into good deeds. That's what happened. We've tried to make that change
towards Allah subhanho wa Taala we find a numerous verses inside of Quran if you mentioned about people not respecting the Quran, or holding fast to the Quran, or as we find today's nitpicking inside the Quran most people know what's Halal haram many people to come in and ask him questions that he saw challenging are starting but what the evidence is this the Quran says you may as well not ask us
if you have if you have a pre lewd pre text inside your mind, or you have what's known as today's as photoshopping you know we know ribeye is haram you know if you said I know is haram you know that's it. You know it's a sin it's I'm involved in it, I'm trying to come out here or person is doing something haram inside their life. But when a person tries to justify it, tries to then make that will ensue start to interpret the text to justify what they're doing. This is a form of gopher
there's a form of disbelief. Just to help us to understand the fate of a person any shucks a lady yesterday a person who commits adultery commits fornication and they admit that it's wrong. But lust desires temptations overcome the person he's a sinful person. A person who never ever commits it inside their life, but says what's wrong with people doing it? See no harm in it. So free, free environment, free society, people free to practice whatever they want to practice. This person can become a carrier.
See the difference? One is a sinner and acknowledges their weakness. One doesn't do the action.
But says what's wrong with it because this person is now CHALLENGING GOD, this person is challenging, challenging Allah Subhana Allah Allah. Yeah, I don't want to call luck. Whoa Latif, will hubiera let's lay down rules, parameters, regulations, and he's trying to challenge Allah's PandaDoc Why should this punishment be there? Or why is this a sin? Why is this a vise you know, this concept that we're living in the 21st century is why is it a sin today? You know, as a side by most of the sins that we practice today are the same sins existed a time of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam music, singing women fornication, adultery, cheating, lying, robbery, fraud, read
deceit of the courage, it is no difference. It just a timezone, the same vices, the people that are we're living in some difficult times at the moment. Croatia surrounded by that they lived in an environment and they were far worse than some of the things that they've done read some of the life or some of the companions, the type of life that had notorious individuals that they were when people said that maybe about Roman kebab that rather his donkey will become Muslim before he becomes a donkey.
That's why I said about Omro kebab and what happened to him kebab. Such a staunch individual yet you find when that when the Quran the impact with the beginning of surah Taha 20 of Chapter Quran until verse number 14, element by Hawkins works of delight Lenovo were mentioned all the way until it got to the first bar have Monza now liquid Qurani Tesco Illa co lead Subhanallah in nanny anillo La ilaha illa NFR Bodine Aki salata the decree, these diverse that penetrated the heart and a mind of Omen a kebab went to kill the prophet Elijah to Salam.
And that's what the approach of Islam should be, they can change anybody's heart and mind that they focus inside their lives and they hear the Quran the right message the Quran, will change individuals and bring people close to Allah Subhana Allah rather than us making wielaard Making excuses well we will live in the modern world. We should be blunt about this what we believe in obviously is good manners, good etiquette, good behavior, this is what we believe in this our principles are what we try to follow inside any life. So these individual Quran begins to speak about the deceivers Allah mentioned. You have their own Allahu Allah Dena Manu wama yesterday Runa
Illa and for someone Maya Sharon fie Colby maroon facade of Milan Matador so strange is Quran begins by highlighting speaking about 1112 verses about alguna Alfie Kohn Have you ever sat down thought about why is the Quran beginning but speak
combat the hypocrites. Why is it a page your soul about the hypocrites four verses about believers? Two verses about the disbelievers then 11 or 12. Verses speaking about hypocrites. Why is it dimensional Quran in such a manner? Why hypocrites because to give us a warning, you heard their own Allah will ladina Iman that we think we can we can trick Allah's power and those who believe always trying to find a way out. Regarding Islam we don't want to practice it really inside their lives. So Allah begins by warning us about that ficolo be Marylebone and inside their hearts is a is a sickness. A sickness of hair we find doubts should be heard. That's why you find there's two forms
that entered the heart the individual, one is should be heard or one is showered either one and they enter they will destroy the heart individual. If both entered into the heart is a totally dead heart. So half of the people they doubt the doubt shoe had come into the heart or into the mind about belief in Allah Subhana Allah belief and the last day about destiny, Ocado that we find other things that Allah may have mentioned Halal haram inside the Quran, he tried to question them, and doubts begin to spring in the mind until they begin to waver in their faith, or the other way is showered and Allah speaks about both but his head in the beginning Allah mentions fi Colby marathon,
talking about doubts about the arcade that they believe in under patient of Quran sutra hijab, for yet May Allah defeat kalbi Marone Allah says about the believing women on Muhammad main the Mothers of the Believers. That say Hakuna say a good word a blunt word. speak bluntly to speak to the person opposite gender. For what purpose? For yet malady feel called be murdered. Don't let that person in their heart is a sickness. The sickness here mean doubt in beliefs. No. Maratona be Manoj Sherawat last desires lets us speak in an alluring manner to the person of the opposite gender, it arises temptations within the heart. That's the language of Quran is a very unique language the Quran has
the way he approaches certain things. That is important to understand the language of Quran the intent of the Quran what the Quran is teaching us and telling us to do because it tackles all these issues that we all face inside our life. And likewise classical works at the facility speak about many things, but because we don't understand the language of Quran we're not able to access it just to go to a tiny refine. So to look look man the 31st chapter Quran verse number six. What is Allah mentioned woman a Nassima yesterday Allah will Hadith and you did the answer. Belinda. There's people who purchase vulgar speech vain speech, to derail people away from the path of Allah has
found out about the classical works at the fancy speak about what is it referring to music and whatever is linked to it. Mm suitings that is to see the Dolman thought he mentioned that the person came and they hide that singing girls. And he said go and play the musical instruments go and dance in front of them, pour the wine, get them drunk, keep them away from the message of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, same concept exists today. How to derail the massive people away. So when people speak about oh, the Quran doesn't speak about the issues that we face at the moment are limited. Firstly, don't speak about them. The problem is that we don't understand the language. We
can access what classical cinema has spoken about those things that were dead in the heart those things that will destroy us and derail us away from Allah subhanho wa taala. So these individuals who are known as we mentioned that deceiving individuals of sickness inside their heart, Allah mentioned will Makoto Makoto, Allah, well, lo Hyrule mercury in the plot, and they plan and Allah subhanaw taala is the best of planners, that some of us we plot, and we plan to wherever wise, whatever sins we want to do. So the use of is a point in case the brethren decide that we're going to harm Yusuf alayhi salam, and I'm sure most of you are familiar with the story. But what concerns
us look at the month the logic of the brothers, they said what what a corner in the coalmine, Salah when after this. We're going to become righteous people. How many young Muslims that's their mindset today. I'll do whatever I'm doing live my life what I'm doing, you know, when I get to your age, 50 years old, I've lived and maybe I'll retire and stop what I'm doing. You know, we never had enough of life. You know, I'm sick of doing it, then I'll return back to Los pantalla you know, for most people that that life never comes.
That never comes comes to them who have the aspiration I'll carry on doing what I'm doing my life. At some moment in my life. I'll then repent and turn back the Lord's Prayer for many of them it doesn't come not that we wish that upon them. But it's a reality that you see it that those people had the aspiration at some time later inside my life. I repent back to Allah subhanaw taala especially those involved in severe vices, severe sins in the Ladino buena and tishie Alpha Heisha to Phil Adina Manu Lahoma Azabu Alleman fifth Daniel Acura, those who love to spread vise inside society they love it. They thrive upon that, you know once again there's two different types of
sinners a person has a personal sin is a personal vice that I have is my own personal mistake. I'm a human being and then those who push things inside society, those who live
Have those scenes inside society the message inside so to know in the Latina you have buena Anta she Alpha Aisha those who love to spread vice haram Finissage society Lomasa boo le McPhee dunya Allah says get to be a severe punishment for them in this dunya before then again inside an era what we find inside that Muslim society, the biggest diapers or the biggest drug dealers whatever it may be a home at the mall Muslims we should be ashamed of ourselves
we should be ashamed of ourselves that you know we should be boast about we feel proud about it. And even those people who are involved in these actions because we're going to come to even Ramadan and Eid what these how these people they Delve and how they live their lives is worrying
that he was we began with non Muslims were speaking about them that some non Muslims have a better conduct and some Muslims today notice that he's Muslim the disbelievers but it's something to reflect and to think about that non Muslims will say will say you know, this is haram this is not this is not what your your religion teaches you that you should make in his practice inside your life. They have to remind us which is a shame upon us. Well, we should be reminding them of staying away from the vices and the scenes that taken place inside our society. Let me suggest another place that the Quran said Surah Ibrahim wakad McCormack macro home we're in delay macro home when can a
macro monitor zoulah menholt GBL
they plot and they plan and they plotting and planning is with Allah subhanaw taala and even the plotting and planning is to move a mountain away from its place meaning some people so so accurate you know today it could be a building across the road here is a mountain there you come back the following week the mountain is gone it doesn't exist the pathways of change. That's how accurate they're plotting in their planning is that they move mountains out of their place but that can't be hidden from Allah Subhana Allah Yeah, and then even warmer to fish so Dora, Allah knows what the deception of the eyes are and knows what the hearts contain. So even look at Deep the Quran is that
people will say okay to look at maybe opposite gender, look at someone you know, no one really knows. But Allah is addressing deep down that Allah knows what the eyes what the what the perception of the eyes is, why the eyes are looking.
And what the hearts what they desire, what they conceal. That's when they only the concealing the hearts will only be exposed.
On the day of judgment of the heart it contains where they really believed in Allah and Allah really had that perception towards Allah subhanaw taala. So this concept Allah mentions that not to become those individuals who sway away to the other path. What are the Kulu Kaladin Anna sola Anselm and foster home Allah eco Mufasa code don't become like those individuals who forget Allah. So we do all these actions, then we forget Allah Subhana Allah, Allah ecoman forsaken, these are the rebellious individuals. And this reason if you mentioned from sort of, for Connie mentioned this criterion between the good and the bad, and that always makes this equilibrium as a natural Muslimeen Talmud
remain mellow concave attacco moon are we going to make the criminals like the Muslims? Malcolm kafer document how do you judge and that's another extremity somebody finance society that we make we make Muslims that they're so so lost so away from the path
and give non Muslim more respect over other Muslims. Allah says that the Quran financial misdemeanor column which we mean, are we going to make Muslims to be like the criminals Malcolm gave a document how do you judge likewise, another patient inside the inside the last panel mentioned once again that those individuals, I'm not the only Latina Samuel Saleh article moves sildenafil out are we going to make those people who believe and carry out righteous actions like those can move sildenafil out those people who see corruption upon the land. So Allah is not going to deal with people.
And he the way that we understand that is dunya, those who are trying to be good Muslims, there's going to be a Jew reward for those individuals, those who are corrupt those who fall astray those who do wrong things. Those are wrong intentions, Allah will judge them we're not judging them, Allah subhana wa jal, those individuals, but Allah Subhana Allah lays out as soon upon this earth that whatever you're intending it will eventually it will come out of the individual you know, it's a vessel the heart is a vessel it needs to it needs to express itself you know, just say that whatever your heart contains love emotions, it pours out that's what the heart is. So eventually it will come
out what interest the person holds inside their heart and Allah is Panda describes the Alladhina DESA will be number one we're Lottery but those individuals who take the deed as play and as amusement was rotten will hire to dunya and this word has deceived them for Yeoman and some commander Sulekha yomim herder will forget them just like they forgot this meeting with Allah subhanaw taala so people have taken their Deen as play and amusement. What does that mean? Look at today What is Islam? What is everyone speak about Islam. We need entertainment.
It has to be refreshing.
We need a substitute. There is no substitute something which is haram.
You're going to get that cliche away from my mind that this is haram and have a
subject that's what you find that from from smoking the substitute is vaping. It's been designed for people to come off smoking, but it's become a fad. It's become a craze in our society. The intent behind is to take away soften the person smoke cigarettes, it helps them it becomes a detox them to eventually give up smoking. But today what we find is a big phenomenon inside our society. Everybody vapes
you know, we totally want to empty out their pockets now. I wouldn't be surprised if a bucket full of people may Allah forbid have vaping inside their pockets. A whole bunch shake is only a bit of tutti fruity and these are gonna have some bubble gum, government drink have a milkshake have something sweet.
You know we'll have concluded medical has been proven is haram
is dangerous to your health. Medically has been concluded. Islamic Lee is concluded but because maybe it's possibly Macedonia we love this word Nakuru. But look Islamically What does the word Mukuru mean? Mukuru means something which Allah has under despises dislikes. And then likewise the prophets dislikes that action. That's enough for you to reflect you don't need me to come and preach to someone to preach to everyone just a basic Muslim Allah's panda does not like this action is repulsive in front of Allah subhanaw taala and then the person doesn't like that action as well. That's enough, there's a person full thing to think inside the law that I need to try my best to
avoid this. Like I said, we all have weaknesses. We're not here to pick on people expose people since we'd hate to encourage ourselves that this is something which isn't good is detrimental to my Eman to my health. As I studied a *tier when it says baseball necassary show you five intends to the stomach claw plays anything. Find any single thing and place inside these five elements. Hey 14, Walmart oneness.
That's what there is to preserve your mind, your body, your intellect, your property, your honor, your dignity, your dean, take anything that's halal. And place it inside these five points. They will is beneficial for your wealth, your property, your knifes your soul, your Eman, your faith, your family, your lineage everything, take anything that's haram. What's the repercussions? of smoking of drugs of alcohol? What are the repercussions they that this is what it does to people and how it damages a person. So they all approve is that this is something that we need try to avoid inside our lives. Unlike in today's world find a great look. Look around our area at the moment only
how many shops to have these vape shops you haven't had a community era these machines should be a forefront of clamping down upon these things. Not that we have people from a Muslim entrepreneurs businessmen, you know think yeah, I'm going to open up a vape shop
and how much money you're going to earn out of that anyway realistically, or are you just trying to spread vise inside society?
And then how many fights that we ate this? There we go to such top environmental people go to the shisha lounges. They say I was an N music playing smoking shisha smoking the Bubble Bubble Bubble the pipe or that maybe the hookah sickness speaking about World Politics speak about this. Speaking about that.
You know, I was in Morocco a few years ago, and it's three o'clock in the morning, and we're going to fudge it and people have been sitting there from Asia all the way until Fudger. They hadn't paid the budget and the discussing the whole world.
The one that the Muslim world is in a state
to desolate so we do. That's what life is. And same thing with today at the moment. That these vices they live around us. We don't really bother about them. We don't care about them. Everybody just becomes a bit your thing. Here now we find that smoking and taking drugs is useless. It's a common practice. It's everyone alignments. It's a layman's activity now. Every other person is a common practice for them. To smoke. This country's marine living skunk
hasn't even attractive.
You read up the middle of skunk means
but you find that it's a common practice when we was growing it is very rare. It was very rare. Only a few people spoke this trash just rubbish and they will ostracize is our society. Now we become this what happened with the weakness of a man and our faith and not against our society every I hate to say every other Muslim youth that Dibble and dabble in drugs.
That's a common practice for them. Or their mindset is that that's what they want to be inside their life. The biggest player the biggest dawn, the biggest drug dealer, the biggest warlord, whatever it may be, is also so rubbish.
What does it get for you? What does it get for you inside you'll have read or read the history last few years how many people been shut down gunned down by the police?
Don't people read the people out or the innocent people they didn't have nothing on the read between the lines, most of them carrying weapons with them loaded weapons inside their cars. You know a normal person I don't I don't carry a gun in my car.
Which same person carries a gun inside the car. You only carry a gun in your car because you know you've either got beef with people outside there, or you know there's going to be issues. So you have to keep a peace with you to keep peace within your own self. But if you're not involved in these things, you don't have to worry about it. But this is how many as they say you live by the gun you die by the die by the gun.
That's what it is.
That's what many of our young youth look at their lives, how they're passing away, especially on the day of either a touch of the day of what happened. Most of these people a night of Eid, they're planning their haram. That's called deceive. They're planning what I'm going to do on the day of Eid.
And he puts us to shame as Muslims. How we come out on the streets, how we behave, how we conduct ourselves, the things that we're doing, it makes us look makes us shameful inside society that is this our religion our faith is, is this what 2930 days. And this phenomenon it was worse because we had it going on in Ramadan.
We have people fighting and all sorts of taking place outside the masjid that this is supposed to be Ramadan where the sheltering the devil is supposed to be chained up. So that was the answer is Hadith, that the devils are chained up somewhere else I said, it doesn't mean physically all devils are chained up. But there's going to be devils have human beings. Shelter you know, God will instance devils have human beings that dare devil, the devil's the devil is a disguise walking around on upon the face of this earth and they carry on, carry on carrying out device upon the face of this earth. And the second thing, common thing inside of society is free mixing.
Even in Islamic events and gatherings that we find we just think it's a common practice. You know, in a in a masjid, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, there is a reason why they never had barriers of certain things were in place because of the nature of the buildings. And appropriately some will say that wait there until the women folk have left the salah. And when they used to come to the masjid, it was like black crows with black garments upon them. And they will walk as close to the to the woods as well that the dust and the dirt of the woods will come with their garments, and no one could recognize the women.
It's not a fashion show. You don't come to a masjid as a fashion show. You don't come down beautification, even though remember who allowed the unveiling of the face read the works of the Folk Aha. They said, if the face resembles beauty or the woman beautifies herself, she should cover a face. So if you want to use the words, the lenient scholars who have that leniency, they still write, that if she's got makeup on her face, and she has to cover a face, she goes out to society.
But what we find in when talking about out on the streets, we're talking about in the masjid, that people are coming dressed in this manner inside the house of Allah's pantalla house of purity, a house of remembrance of Allah Subhana Allah dhikr of Allah Subhana Allah nada, not a piece of fitna. So if at that time, some of the companions were arguing whether women should come to the masjid or not, that's 1400 years ago. Imagine if somebody were alive today. Do you think you would allow women to come to the masjid
at 1400 years ago debating and saying that no, we shouldn't allow them to come? Because they don't conduct themselves appropriately.
If I'm called to be sad, it just seems to be the IRS people some people don't want to listen to me, tell our women for read through to nor read so to Nyssa the fourth chapter of Quran read through to note the 24th chapter Quran reads so to read the surah of the Quran what does Allah say know what we say? Allah says, Allah Azza wa Cordner fi booty could not wala tuber Raja Raja Jai Ilya till Gula remain inside your home that don't come out that the times of Jahangir
Imam called to be inside is to see he mentioned that the way that hijab with the earlobe showing and the top of the neck showing that's a hijab of Janelia
that's hijab, what Jamelia does hijab of what modernity, the 21st century there is just a scarf on the top of your head, your your earlobe is showing your neck is showing that hijab who said that hijab
which focus does hijab so that's what MUFA Serena written time ago, about how these people who conduct themselves will take lessons from that. remain inside your homes you come out for a need exists for persons not to come out inside society, and flaunt your beauty and show your beauty inside society. That's not the way of the believing women. As the Quran tells you this is the way that we they need to conduct themselves this leads on to what vices inside society, promiscuity, lewdness, wickedness, bad conduct, bad behavior, breakdown of the society that's what it leads to that we don't nip it in the bud and teach ourselves and our family but this is what the editors of
Quran tell us to live in throughout our lives. Not that eat the day of Eid becomes a fashion parade, a fashion show, inside of society that we do stop these displays we find inside that's taking place around us in the Latina Avenue from metalphoto. From the airmen who was there do COFRA
that's what these people are first they believed and it can be tougher than they believe they can go for summers there to cover an increasing cover. What does that mean?
That's when you're in the masjid. We're believers. When we come out with a chameleon we change colors come back in the machine again believers come again with something else. You know people know how to change the colors and how to speak to each individual accordingly. So in an estimate gathering and Abdullah Islamic texts or Islamic quotes and everything, when it comes outside in Sofia, that's not
does not change
changes that you're you're trying your best to shake off all these all these previous practices. The second type of people you find is people who show off about Ramadan. Once again, we might find that strange other other people show about Ramadan. Yes, they are. People both look I fasted 2930 days. You know, I've done this I've done that. In we should be thanking Allah's pantile for giving us the Tofik to do certain actions just every headline inside of Saudi Arabia you leaden Amarula Pellucida Katsucon Bill Monday Well other don't destroy your good deeds. Bill money will adapt by continuously mentioning them in harming someone. So you do somebody's somebody something good? You don't keep on
mentioning it to them.
Even you do a good deed you try your best caveman and hacer not just that we try to conceal our bad deeds we conceal our good deeds. The only time person reveals the good deeds is possibly to encourage somebody else. Either that person is tries to conceal their good deeds, or conceal their bad deeds. So person shouldn't show up about the actions that they've done. We find this communist society we find when young people speak another person that way maybe you know, your bed is not long enough, you know your trousers dragging down you know, you don't have a third one today. Why are you wearing Nike for why you got these trainers? Why are you shopping there? Why are you having a
milkshake for why are you doing that for
you know what is that but you can see in the words, you can see the tone the words and what it is is trying to have a go at the person
trying to belittle but that's what we become we just become a display into three more videos want to see these three four codification personalized, and that's what symbolizes a good Muslim. That's not what symbolizes a good Muslim. That's not as similar as a good Muslim. Get that fruit your mind that's not similar as a good Muslim. Because you know, in two, three months, anybody could do that. Anyone could just go and grow their bed in two months. And that's why the fashion people don't shave. You don't bother That's it, just go and buy throw up just go down the shop buy it. So where we're at opium Walker, and that said, I'm a religious person is a religious person is
yes, this essence of truth that these are certain things we have to do. I'm not mocking it, somebody may try to twist my words. Now. That's not my intent is what we've made. That's the only thing.
If that's the thing that displays only what Islam is, and we've misunderstood what Islam is that we're not focused upon the entire internal development of ourselves. You know, amongst a practicing Muslim, the most difficult problems are the social problem amongst practicing Muslims, within their homes, within the family unit with their family members, with his siblings, with the brothers, with his sisters, with a wife with the children. And he's supposed to be practicing Muslims.
You know, as a mom, we don't want to deal with this, this cases of people bashing your wife with a baseball bat, he's in the budget first row, you'd think he's an angel. You think he's an angel, but he battered his wife with a baseball bat when he goes home.
But he looks the part doesn't he? Or he goes home and he takes crack and cocaine.
But he looks the part doesn't need so it's not about looking the part it is a social issues for many years of experience living amongst our people that we need to we can take out these social problems and stop falling into a trap of just a certain display of certain things that this is what Islam is
the real reformation reformation of changing ourselves inside within ourselves what we find so the showing off or making other Muslims look down. The other Muslims, you know, equal to the statement, where was I? A few months ago, then where was that? What was I doing then? Then all of a sudden, I've become some form of control over the rest of society around me to judge what other people were doing. Few months ago, I was a scum lying on the streets.
Now the next response now I'm supposed to be some great angelic form, telling people what to do inside their lives.
And this is this isn't just off the top of mine I've seen I've been in the woowoo area. I've seen a person who has been Muslim for three months. He's making one when he's busy backbiting that the Imam the Imam, he doesn't know what he's doing. He's dissatisfied. And he's thinking well, you have just been a Muslim for three months and I'm sitting there thinking Imams been there for 30 odd years being the Imam you have the audacity you don't even know how to perform or do properly to sit there back by back chat about the Imam is that what we're teaching the people or they may have a problem but he's been a mom for 30 years he's been praying 30 years of his life you telling me Allah is
gonna waste that
you judging that Allah is gonna waste that okay, let's say for example, argument's sake, a person who does some innovation inside their life there's some element of innovation okay, that may be null and void does that not make everything else about the in life null and void? Who are we to become judgmental about other people that we judge other individual where they're going to what's gonna happen because these are once again, sicknesses inside our society. And we don't speak about them openly. Then what's going to happen is will become common practice everybody wherever you go, that's what they talk about. Even Ramadan what are people talking about? Don't go to that Masjid that Imams
like this. Don't go there. Don't pray there. Don't do that. Don't listen this person don't do that. But that's your Ramadan gone wasted. How much Quran did you read? Or maybe one juice?
That's what you spent Ramadan doing? How much Quran you listen to not much
How much trash Did you listen to a lot of it
that's that's us Muslims
and then we want to speak about what impact Ramadan had inside our lives. Also Allah mentioned about this this concept of we think we're doing a great favor. Allah to Allah Moon Allah be Dini come we think that was perfect becoming good Muslims. We're doing a great service to Islam, the end of SoTL 100 Allah warns us don't think you're doing a good service to Allah today we should be thanking below your mu Allah Nadal Kamala Imani In Kuntum Saudi again, what is the blessing of Allah is trying to guide us to this, that we're able to carry out these righteous actions by the permission of Allah Subhana Allah Allah, the third type of people and people who benefit from Ramadan we find a
hadith a Salah in a Salah volume Aquila Juma Ramadan in Ramadan ko Farah to Lima Boehner Hoonah one prayer to another prayer. One drummer to another drummer one Ramadan to a number of Ramadan is a expiation forever sins took place between the two as long as the person stays away from major sins because they need physical job of a person to remove them. But what is Hadith mean? shall contain me number two line expressions of Hadith he mentions a modern interpretation that the impact of one Salah takes you to the following Salah so when you leave one Salah you go back to work your family, whatever you're doing, you know Eman doesn't remain the same. It will remain the same. You're busy
doing what you're doing the call of prayer come so it refreshes your Eman again. You come to your Mazuma you hear the more either your head admonition head hotbar that Eman takes you all the way to the following You're welcome is Thursday and Miss Juma Your man is lifted once again. And the impact of Ramadan 2930 days of fasting. There's an end on the first show one. The impact of that goes all the way until the following chadburn. Siobhan is just finishing it enters Ramadan. That's a more than the interpretation as to what they may not realize given this hadith, the impact of one prayer to another prayer impact one Juma to another Juma one Ramadan to Rama another Ramadan so if some of
us Ramadan Susanna was over, we just straight back into what we're doing before May Allah forbid that's a clear sign about we haven't benefited from Ramadan. So benefit those individual those who feel a change person, no one's going to be 110% but you feel it inside your heart you know Hamdulillah I feel I'm a better person. I'm more closer to Allah Subhana Allah and obviously the journey it continues, coming close to the lowest point that we could all see. If we look at when we were 1516 year old leading reading our Salah and we look at 50 years old there's a clear distinction not in the format of the prayer. There's a display distinction in what in the maturity of the mind
and understanding so no one can say that when I was 15 out my level of kosher and focused like now I'm 55
There must have been some sin at the age of 15 your mind matures your thoughts mature so that's what that all of us we feel closer this moment so another Ramadan we feel even more closer another Ramadan even more closer the journey continues in coming closer and closer to Allah subhanaw taala and that's why Assam Juna Assam Dunya is a shield is a protection protection from the Hellfire in the hereafter and a protection side is dunya that is a shield as a gives us the ability to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala so as we began with the concept of Maha Sabha accountability, all of us can sit down and say where do I fall short
inside this month of Ramadan
the praise that I miss May Allah forbid Did I miss any prayers? Or did I miss any praise in congregation praying in Jamara trying my best so not for next Ramadan I can begin not to think now plan ahead that some people may not have had time off work you know for holiday everyone plans five years 10 years ahead puts money away for the you know the holiday for life whatever you know, most would like to do that put 50 P a week away wherever so when they go to 7080 that make this lifetime holiday. Right? We might joke about it but the concept is true. They've got a vision that I want at this age I want to be there why not? Why can we have that same vision? Everybody comes as a question
oh they don't let me pray at work. Don't let me have time of Ramadan. You don't need to speak about Ramadan. You can book your holidays in advance five years in advance you can see in the calendar that may Allah give us all a long life that Ramadan in the year 2026 is going to be in this month in February book your holidays now what's stopping you? Why do you leave it to the night before Ramadan and say oh my bloody boss carefree and is there any other
it's your own fault. Nothing's preventing you but when you want to go on holiday you want to do something it's all in place isn't it? It's all been booked all organized but when it as we began with but for Allah subhanho Leave it to the last minute so maybe in the last minute you know the doors agenda might slowly open I just squeezed my way in.
May if you do and humbly learn will Allah make that happen to all of us to squeeze in some ways in it, but don't rely upon that? Because there's no sin not Allah that's not the Sunnah of Allah Subhana Allah Allah will develop this summer in the heavens on the earth. There is a there's a natural sunnah los Manos laid out we need to try to do inside our lives. So
likewise you find the fasting the control just to be controlled as stomachs and private parts etc Now outside of Ramadan are we controlling ourself and so many animals speak about the real fasting is is fasting the faculties some will i Some will although some original some will yet fasting of the eyes the hands the feet that we find this real fast thing that is you know the other day I was on the housing the train and I just looked and there's maybe one or two people reading a book every single person these would you call the pods inside there is swiping music D Is there any other you just sit there's like a zombie no one talks no one looks no one engages a dead society that's what
the world has become that's the old everything that's all the world is
you know so this is faculties you know people spend all day long listening to music all day long and you know especially is going to be the winter days. It is a fast people get up at 12 Whenever somebody will sleep all the way until four o'clock that's not something we're looking forward to Ramadan in the winter days. Go sleep all the way to 355 Get up brush your teeth Guess what 358 Open your fast Allahu Akbar What a lovely fast
Yeah, this is a reality of people that's what it is. Many of us the day begins what for for people. It begins first your time even the scambling people can pm will don't get up in the morning for Fudger or don't get up for vote or whatever feeling so tired so fatigued. You know the prayer is one prayer
whether you pray Sinatra, we you pray tahajjud Akiyama Laila the old one prayer, different names, they're not three separate prayers. If you pray straight after Aisha is called Sinatra, we if you pray slightly later on is called tahajjud. You pray later and closer to fajita becomes clear Malay any one of them you pray is fine.
If you pray isha with the Imam, you pray Fudger when the Imam is written and as you prayed all night,
so rather than rushing to get to tell Malayala get somewhere, make sure you pray your Isha in JAMA and make sure you pray your Fajr in Jamar because this is another fad as well that we find going from one recited to another site that one should not respect to speak at the Imams element, they're just doing their job. They just carry with the deen is where the problem in a lot of social problems around that people like to have a dig at the Imam or the Imam was at this event he was there. They're not to blame for the external things that take place. There's only so much we can do. We're not always static police to go outside and, and physically always. Obviously when I was younger, I
should do that. I was able to do that nowadays. People just say who are you, you know, get out my face. So you'd have to walk away? You know, but before that before it wouldn't happen.
It wouldn't happen you say to Muslim youth that why you do why is that what you're doing is they'll feel ashamed.
They feel ashamed. And I don't want to sound derogatory. I find that more and more non Muslims when I faced them. They have a lot more respect about the tenants of Islam than for some of us most of what we do inside our lives. And as I mentioned becomes worrying for us. Likewise Quran in conclusion, how much Quran did we read? How much Quran we read out that we feel that we focus towards the Quran even you stutter you find it difficult, don't give up. A person who stutters and visa Quran will have two rewards given to them so try your best to read the Quran especially this past month of Ramadan and during the year to build up so when you come to next Ramadan you become
more fluid in reading the Quran. So that's these three broad categories that we spoke upon. They're mentioned inside the Quran is that sort of father Allah mentioned for minimum volume will NFC while minimum oxygen minimum Saba can be fairer to be a dilla Delica will funnel Kabir. So Allah mentioned the you spoke about categories inside the Quran. As I mentioned for minimum volume Malinowski, they those people who oppress their own selves. So we began with the first category is people who are the deceivers.
Those people deceiving themselves those the hypocrites etc. Why are they valuable enough, so they only oppressing their own selves. That's what they're doing. While minimum mocassin and those who are middle in the middle part, that's many of us, sometimes doing good deeds, sometimes doing bad deeds, sometimes he is wherever the wind blows, but we're trying. That's the key element that we're always trying. Because, you know, an unnecessary murder can be so in the marine or be in the soul, inside. So the use of Allah mentioned, is always calling the nurses calling towards that which is evil at times, and especially person is surrounded by evil, it becomes easy to do evil. Just when we
began, if you're in an environment, it's easy to do evil because you're already in that environment. If you're not inside that environment, it becomes hard for you to fall into evil. When you place yourself inside an environment how many young boys that I know who just say to me, you know in today's language, you know, shake I just caught with these people. They're just my friends I move about with them. I don't do anything.
And next minute they the big daddy on the road.
And I was cleaning the nose with a tissue and it was when a young boy
The same person saying that I just don't I don't do these things.
I just move about with them. Birds of a feather flock together.
So be careful of who your friends are. Because real friends don't want you to go down that path. They don't want you to go down that path a person most people when they see somebody that when I was growing up if somebody older than you so you will say to say to your older brother, you know what I saw you Mr. Khan, I saw you walk in with silence on the street.
My big brother give me a quick round ahead.
Today we find big brothers, sisters, brothers, smokes drugs together, do haram together, to do all sorts of thing together, they think is honorable.
And we should be ashamed of vessels. Worried about our society, worried about our people was taking place amongst ourselves. So these are the deceivers. Second people are Muslim and sometimes they sometimes they at least were trying inside our lives. And the third category fine, the muda cone
sabich Humble hierarchy, always trying to do good deeds, trying to better themselves. That's what whoever makes that change what was planned and nothing prevents anyone from reaching that level Matakohe and don't think there's some special attire some special weird, some special dhikr some special dress sense. Nothing prevents him every time you mentioned that Kulu Mottaki who will EULA every person who's pious is a friend of Allah.
This is we had a Maghrib Allah will you ladina Amano your regimen of Guru Murthy. Illa nor Allah is a friend of every single believer, takes him out the realms of darknesses and brings him to the door. So if you make that conscious effort inside your heart, your mind that Allah I want to come to the new to the light, Allah won't fail you. Allah will guide you towards that light will take you that's why the opposite there's so many young young people they find they've they haven't seen these things inside they live we should be we should be happy about that as well. That haven't seen this scene is read the scene of the Prophet I saw his inspiration. And you want one or two occasions like
that almost seated, right that he just want you to see what the Quraysh for day. So for the mountain, he just came down just to see what they're doing. As he's coming down the mountain, some irlam of Sierra, they don't accept authenticity, but just to encourage us because others have reported and mentioned a wealth of Syrah. He fell asleep.
He fell asleep. So Allah is trying to protect that even from seeing what was taking the courage for doing and that's when we want our youth to be we don't want them to be seeing this haram or having this perception of st Haram is seeing what's on the other side and then changing aside our lives. No, we want them to stay as far as possible. So that's where the machine should become a conducive environment of strengthening our image and strengthening our conviction towards Allah subhanaw taala that's why the Quran we mentioned the whole concept Ramadan yo yo Latina amla, Kubelik Musa Musa makuti Bala determine Kamala Kamala Khan, that taco, that's the message of Ramadan, that you might
become pious in the videos. May Allah grant us all the Tawfeeq inability to find a question or search to become those pious individuals any deficiency we had during the blessed month of Ramadan to change those deficiencies into positive traits inside our life to change them over into into good deeds give us inspiration and mindset to better ourselves in preparation for the following Romanized many celebrities to pray to Allah get us to the following Ramadan and with a visa from Donna Allah accept it from us so now we're praying to Allah get us to the following Ramadan Ramadan or de there are many Ramadan is over they were able to to better ourselves become good individuals may Allah's
Pandora place these words in a museum of Huseynov accepted from all of us Akula COLA that was stuck for Lalibela come with me must mean for stuck through known hola go for Rahim. You stop for
