A discussion today is about preparation for a bond.
Find the famous cliche that to fail to plan is to plan to fail.
And that in general, unfortunately, not to sound too harsh. Some sub many of us Muslims at the moment, whether the local level on a global level, some of us we think that to plan and to organize yourself, is some form of non Islamic trade. It's a form of kufr disbelief, following the western system of Western etiquettes. And here should be mentioned that not all Western etiquettes are bad etiquettes. Because you find there are many aspects of the wider society around us, which are actually the teachings of Islam that people have extracted from Islam, or the following way of life which is close to Islam, good character, good behavior, etc. So the Muslim, Mr. One, take metabolic
movement, a belief is the one that the wisdom is the last property of the believer.
Wherever the believer finds that those property, he has the most right to claim it back and to implement it once life.
And as a side point, some people tried to quote this as a hadith. This is not a hadith not authentic, these words to go back and to attribute them to the Prophet Muhammad. Some of us and many of them have had these as mentioned, but it is a wise saying that goes back possibly to some of the companions or those who came after the companions. Anyhow, the meaning is true, that wisdom is the last property of the believer. So our task hamdulillah we thank God that we've gathered some good 10 or so days before Ramadan, to prepare ourselves to possibly change the normal climate of the way that we organize, we conduct ourselves in our lives. So we find that minimal preparation that we
begin to take in our lives and especially towards a monk in your grammar barn, we slightly flip this over to the other side, and begin to reflect and begin to think that what has Allah Subhana Allah prepared? So here we're looking at the concept of preparation. First thing we want to look at the Quran mentioned about preparation for those individuals who don't believe Allah, Allah mentioned for Dr novel that he will hold to a nurse who will hegira or edit them carefully for that fire who's few his men and stones which has been prepared or entered that's the key word we focus focusing upon or in that which has been prepared for the disbelieving individuals that you find a stance the creed
kind of atmosphere not his agenda to Hakuna Paradise is a truth is a reality like was a Hellfire which has already been created by loss of Hannah Hannah would be filled of the day any of judgment. So here we find are added to any or indebted Catherine something which has been prepared for the disbelieving any individuals. Numerous other is in southern Colorado we find in Nevada are added in carefree Arena
in Nevada are indeed the last crime that is prepared for the disbelieving individuals a humiliating punishment tortures be prepared for those individuals. Life was lost pounder Allah mentioned what de nada la tea or a cafe de de that fire, which has been prepared for the disbelieving individuals and a mass portion of the people upon this earth on the way in agenda on the way towards the Hellfire prepared.
by Muslim Hannah who with the AMA, likewise, you find the opposite. That's the way the Quran mentioned one it mentioned the opposite. So the Quran mentions what has been prepared the disbelieving individuals of fire. It also mentioned the opposite for the believing folk, for those individuals, or for I mentioned was to 1130 in Europe, the corner, watching nothing outdoors somewhere to an Earth, or a dead limb.
race with one another, in gaining the forgiveness from your Lord, and gaining the paradise, which is like the heavens in the earth, or in that little puppy, this occasion which will be prepared for whom, for the pious individuals. So Hellfire has already been prepared. And likewise, you find paradise has been prepared for the pious in individuals. Likewise, in the beginning of social dakara that we find robust sharing with many unknown Jonathan kobashi. right in the beginning, the first time discussion begins to take place on verse 24. So for the first time the crown begins to discuss paradise. It mentioned well, but she removed me and gave them glad tidings of rivers inside paradise
and partners and spouses that have been given to them. So this is something which has already been prepared for the believing individuals. Another verse inside the Koran that we find
are in the villa Dena Manu Binda, evoluzione. Indeed, paradise has been prepared for those individuals, prepared for them those who believe in Allah and believes inside his messenger, in a famous Hadith also that we find are added to the ability to solve the hidden Birla Well, certainly I will accept or Allah can be
added to I've prepared for my believing righteous servants, what No, I have seen what no he has heard and no feeling or perception has come from the heart or the mind of any individual. And then the Prophet Mohammed from optimum greatness has its potency, rating his heartbeat he mentioned the verse in the Quran for the animal not so no fee alone, mean karate gesture and the American young man knows, no one knows, the rewarded recompense that will be given to these individuals, which will be a coolness, attendance for the eyes, just recompense reward, the bad can we are my known because of the actions they used to do were inside that hereafter in the era or for this dunya.
This is the we convince the reward that we given to those pious individuals on the Day of Judgment. So this is, in this introduction, it's time to make a mindset to begin to think about preparation, this will most primed as prepared for those people disbelief. This is what the Lord has prepared for the people who believe. And likewise then we find a more specific preparation in the month of Ramadan, that allows you find that all the gates of Paradise are swung open, all the gates of Paradise are swung open, and all the gates of Jannah are locked. And the share of being the devils in the inside the howdy mobile women, Mr. mcquarry and Muslim insiders. In the authentic me
connections, and all the doors of Paradise are open, meaning that there's more opportunity for person to come close to lost time to add more chances the individual doesn't mean that necessarily everybody dies in Ramadan, we're definitely going to Paradise is more chance of that individual. Because of the month of blessing and focus and devotion. That person has more opportunity to go towards the path of Paradise, and the dose of jahannam unlocked. That doesn't mean no one's going to end up getting two gentlemen, and the devils are changing. That's what many individuals poses question of how come some people still end up doing evil, even in the month of Ramadan hedorah Lemma
given various explanations. Amongst them. They've mentioned that the devil you need the smaller devils any unchained. As for the rasa, the main devils they are still free lurking around but so the smaller soldiers that you find their own chain that others have mentioned, that when a person does evil inside Ramadan, then this is their own inner self, their own essence within themselves which is corrupt comes out because a decent individual in the month of Ramadan will become vigilant about themselves but a person who's corrupt and we're going to talk about some people that hate Ramadan. They get upset when it's the month of Ramadan. So they corruption comes out. So this is blameworthy
only upon the source of the evil actually they carry out in this blessed month of Ramadan, like was in a hadith and Sunnah among many going back to the concept of preparation. When it is the first night of the month of Ramadan. A caller calls out or seeker of good act will come towards that goodness. Then another call or the same quarter calls out or seek of evil, have bad actions then restrain yourself and every single night under contract freeze an individual from the fire and that's every single night. So imagine this
In preparation for last pandadoc telling one of the angels to call up to people to come to goodness, also to call out to the people to stay away from even and every single night, a neck, an individual is freed from the fire and entered your name into paradise and had the the pseudonym of Timothy like qualified that the reward is multiplied. If I misheard, you could see, indeed that last time that I said that all of the actual son of Adam, our phones are for him, except for fasting, it is for me and I will recompense the individual. Now here this had eaten face that you sound strange, because we all know as basic Muslims are all of our actions are to be done for him for most of hamdallah so
why in this hadith is it mentioned that so nearly a cm Li fasting is for me, and I will reward the individual. When the Quran mentions good enough solder to do Suki mama Yo mama Mati dinero, para de mi, luxury della who will be their little omit we're under a widow muslimeen say my praying, sacrifice my living my dying is all dedicated towards Allah Subhana Allah, that is the Civil Code of a Muslim total devotion towards Allah Subhana Allah. So why in this hadith is it mentioning when we all know all of our actions should be directed towards Allah Subhana Allah, once again, rhythm of Hadith had mentioned, is the reason why such wording has been mentioned, is because when you fall
when you pray, you're visualized by people that you pray you perform, how do you visualize by the millions who are around you even give charity in secrecy somewhere along the line the person gave money out there may mention it, that the person Hope you're done this.
But when it comes to fasting, no one knows that you are truly fasting in the law, except for Allah Subhana Allah, because that person has failed for those panduranga person could eat secretly go downstairs to the kitchen, eat something and pretend to their family, I'm still fasting. So that's the reward is multiplied to such a level. Because the level of taqwa the person, because they can be no signs, definitely individual who knows. I remember when I was growing up many young individuals, you'd be with them and you're fasting and they're eating all day long. And then they when they running home, say mom, I'm starving, I'm hungry. I've been fasting all day, eating all the food they
know. And I tried to pretend that Oh, you're fasting, I'm suffering been a long day. So the bill Muslim is the one who understands that they abstaining from fasting from eat soy from eating and drinking. A marital relationship for the sake of muscle Canada does the reward is multiplied many times over. That last contract give recompense for individually because that person isn't as on a higher level of commitment of devotion taqwa towards Allah Subhana. Allah, like, wasn't happy to Buhari that we find the person he abandons his food and drink and desires because of me, fasting is for me and I will want recompense for it. And a good really good deed is rewarded 10 times over
other words to other attorneys, while many times over as much as the last time, the eloquence even the smell, the breath, that foul odor that comes out from my mouth, because medical has been proven when the stomach is empty, that you find this odor will begin to develop that some of us most of us shy away from the fact of you try to hide whatever it may be, is no fun. We are Muslims. This is something that refreshes the body, it tunes the body, a full year of 11 months of eating, drinking, enjoying a normal life. So now the body needs to be refreshed once again. So many Muslims are supposed to take a modernistic approach and begin to give their own symptoms because we're
surrounded by non Muslims. You know, my breath may have a foul smell, so I'm not going too fast. I just pass on the weekend. And those type of people don't call me Mohammed, Mohammed COVID minion Mo, como Jamil Kumi Jan, you know, but then you know this type of attitude that we have. I do pray. But I pray at home when I come home. And I pray as a Muslim and Asia in five minutes and then I go to sleep. But during the daytime because I'm surrounded by non Muslims, I can't really display myself as a Muslim or petty excuses that maybe the toilet is dirty or a non Muslim walks by me and distracts me These are excuses the raising of those that are going to accept excuses like that on
the Day of Judgment. So these are Muslims who believe that because non Muslims were worried about the file spend most of them you could spend the mouse will come to their mouths anyway not to disrespect them. It's either cigarettes or drugs or alcohol or whatever it may be comes out of their mouth. So our smell is an actual smell. But remember to the laws of Canada Allah
and you find one lead in FCB at the hollowfibre sign up Yahoo and the lemon we think misc that foul smell, if we can call it a foul smell in front of a loss panda Allah is better than the smell of musk
Remember that think about the loss of Canada in front of a lot of data that's meant that comes to my mouth that in front of a lot better than the sweet smelling fragrance of muscle that we find. So, imagine this is the general preparation, but loss and the specific preparation a month of Ramadan. Now let us flip the other side of the coin. And what is our preparation now for the month of Ramadan? Just like we began with that many Muslims on a local level on a global level we were ill prepared. The Quran mentioned we are into now Mr. Platon, Koba want to be
prepared for them all forms of steeds of warfare. Now when he is encouraging warfare, like Rama mentioned that a people a nation who are ill prepared for warfare are ill prepared for everything else inside their life. And you study this concept in great detail, you'd understand what I'm referring to developed nations have an army, they don't necessarily have an army to attack people or whatever it may be. That's what you find many countries, it becomes a form of a legal concept like in France that you find if you live in France, you have to legally serve in the army for a year or two years. It's a law in Egypt as well. If you graduate is the law of the country, you have to serve
in the army. You know what it creates, it creates discipline. That's what many of our Muslim youth they lack. They talk a lot about not a big things. But to get up in the morning, you'll see an abundance in it. Most people will spend at night, whatever it may be talking, eating and drinking, and then this will wait till when, till
then from Go Go back to sleep, sleep all the way now what nicely now is an origin to NASA. And guess what, for some of these young individuals, that's what their life revolves around. There is no higher limits. There's no higher focus. Oh, but you know, I'm praying five times a day, I'm fasting. Well, guess what? There's millions of people out there in the world who pray five times a day, who are fasting monkey, and in circumstances more difficult than us, and they still try to earn a living, trying to follow a career, follow education, have a better life. So what's so special about us now, just because we happen to be living in the West, no, we should move higher limits, higher
grounds, be disciplining ourselves that we want to change the concept of the of the future, or the difficulties that we're facing that we need to begin to strive more, and instill within our youth, higher limits and expectations. Many developed nations and countries that have been caught, they overtake a knife. The Rome wasn't built in one day, one night, it took a long time to build Rome. It was destroyed in one night in the killings of Julius Caesar, whatever it may be, but to build Rome, it took a long time. So to build the Muslim Empire, once again, it's going to take a long time to indoctrinate people with the right teachings, the right focus, that for monks, us once again that
say with these people who rise once again, if you have lofty goals and lofty aspirations, so Muslim is one who plans their life, yes, it may be once you begin to plan, your life is taken away. There is no harm in that in planning for our lives. If I even if the day of judgment comes begins to take place in front of your eyes. You have some seeds inside your hand, should you throw them away.
The Prophet Muhammad advised that if the day of judgment comes, you have seeds inside your hand, you should plant them in the ground
is the day of judgment. Are they going to grow? No. Let your nominal biography shape. don't despise any good opportunity for life. That's what a Muslim is. Whoever it is an atom's weight of good will see it on the Day of Judgment. We received an activated evil receipt on the Day of Judgment. We find that email is above 70 on branches of faith all of us know the highest level of faith is what
what the lowest level of faith is to the other party to remove an obstacle away from the path what we see all the rubbish data a twig something in the path remove it. That's a branch of email something only the upper level is just all that email is no email is your conviction in to do certain actions to show your conviction. Any Islam tells us you have to pray if they force you to do these actions. Not like some of us are becoming really begin to make simple statements. simply says that I believe all of
them told me one or two.
Bedouin Arabs have both been said that we believe the Quran rebuked them, he says you have not believed but say you have only submitted
so many of us, we don't even show a proper submission. The Woods have also come down in water on a local level and the differences the huge differences that begin to take place aside from the present sighting of the moon when the Prophet Muhammad SAW the moon the crescent, what did he begin to say? All the bring upon us in his mouth a mouthpiece of such
30 minute note is
that's the beginning of his mouth that he's preparing himself that let me be focused in this. And we were between were arguing about Serato travi. How many records? Is it when it preys on this email, that email, you know, these arguments, we know will famous, you know, these arguments will take you basically, you know, how long for more than 1000 years.
So, some of us we think, you know, we read something, you know, praying this is good and praying that is better, or whatever it may be, some of these arguments have been taking place for more than 1000 years enter for power. So what makes us so full of ourselves to make sure that now we're going to remove the state that we listen to our answer to certain disturbing rulings and regulations that you find, and
that effect is open in them, the person at time has to be tolerant towards the other side of the coin, as they say, just because we may be pulled with a certain view, with the shift and the teachers that we have, that doesn't necessarily mean that the opposite view is incorrect. Because you know, strangely enough at times, as you begin to study and develop more, the people who have an opposite view to you guess what, they rely upon exactly the same evidence that you rely on your evidence supporting the ruling and you deduce from my hobbies is exactly the same idea that they use to take their own ruling. So what do you do now? And as you probably take me role famous, referred
me Balaam, an augmented, famous book removing the blame from the noble scholars. And this the reason why scholars may differ what may begin to take place, the head needs to be strong in front of you, in the order that you respect follow, and it could be fun another group of random I guess what they say by the Habib, a nova is it could be famous or even having a nanny and obviously, you remember that the famous Redeemer who could say, you know what, this had been different about his body, what do we do now? What's the response now? So at certain instances, Ramadan, some of us just end up wasting our Ramadan in bickering amongst ourselves, which is quite sad, that a person should be
focusing upon them. So we a person has the ability to advise to change to correct to rectify, and find his goodness in that, but just to become a fitna mongrel inside the masjid and outside the masjid, this is an etiquette, which has become common practice for many of the youth, may the Shabaab that's all that they're good for inside Ramadan, and unfortunately, inside Ramadan and outside of Ramadan as well. So we need to go back and assess so for this Ramadan, that our focus is what what is our focus going to be used to make positive changes certain characteristics and behavior etiquette, person presents and people will listen to each other people will change. But we
become aggressive in our view and aggressive in the way we want to change people. And this will only be detrimental to one in one's own the least likely part that we continuously many of us the average Muslim, we get stuck, or we get stung from the same hole again and again. So every longer line it comes and goes for many years. And we continuously making the same mistakes again and again. In many of us most of you know American OSHA, we know the places evil Bad Company and bad friends, whatever it may be bad relationship.
after Ramadan, we returned back once again to doing the same things maybe there could be a lack of conviction, a lack of sincerity inside our hearts in the way that we're making Toba towards a Muslim Dianna we're not here referring to a sin that many of us can return back and commit sins. We talk about something which is clear cut something which is detrimental which is harmful to the some for some Muslims they become what's known as Ramadan warriors, you just have normal human people come rushing to Juma and then rest of the time don't pray like as Ramadan you have these Muslim so eager you know may grow a beard and look the part and everything come Ramadan. Everything goes out the
window. You know some relevant mentioned documented a person who makes an intention. I will only be a good Muslim in the month of Ramadan. Ever talking about an average Muslim we all go to see in the day to make mistakes after Ramadan, whatever could take place. It could happen. We're talking about a person who specifically says to himself inside the eye. In this month of Ramadan, I would be a good Muslim. I'm going to pray and fast switch my phone off. Stay away from this stay away from that you know what I mean? But as soon as Ramadan is over, guess what? Hey guys, I'm back.
If a person makes the intention, you know for our mentioned for cm party.
Think about a KV score 10 more days to go maybe slightly more than to rectify tension. If for some was young individuals, even elderly individuals have got that intention to 29 or 30 days of fasting or waste of time.
The words are not sinful.
Young Bob in your fasting is null and void finish. You're wasting 2930 days of your life.
So think about that deeply. If you know someone and you've got that intention inside your heart, you need to rectify that intention. It's not something trivial, that you're thinking I'm just going to do this in his mouth Ramadan and go back to what I've done. You can see me the Muslim youth.
And he may Allah forbid, look at many of them, they don't have that much even inside themselves. That on the first day of show Well, the final data entered from Oban on that night. This is common practice. It is an exaggeration in the House of Lords friends, I want to restrict our language. But there are going to be many young individuals who collect their drugs, collect their alcohol, where they're going to fooducate and what they're going to do on that on those blessed days, that's becoming more and more and more a reality. And it's hard to say well, this is enjoyment, this is celebrating a deed or whatever it may be. This is celebrating Erie.
This is this what you call celebrating remember lots of hands on with Maha Brahma with her on things, doing such actions on blessing days at the end of Ramadan, throwing everything away that you may have done inside Ramadan and falling into a mane. These individuals have a bad day for the last few days. And many times people come to us and say, Look, we want you to participate in in the feud rule and say a few words, we don't see any words. Because as far as we're concerned, this is not a super katima as an even ending, the last time that we judge those individuals, stopwatch said anybody to help or to or to paralyze, and last time with judge, Sue inhotim as evidence person died
four o'clock in the morning in a state of drunkenness, intoxication, hanging out their car, den individually and tried to come and say to us, oh, he was a good lad, who was just enjoying himself, what four o'clock in the morning, driving around the West End, stock, your car crashed your car goes inside your car, and then come and tell us that we have some blind individuals. We don't know what you're doing on the street, and they use a good lad. He just happened to be out and about.
This is becoming more more intolerant inside the society the burden that a man has to be harsh to the people who send out the strong message that don't play game to the shadow of Allah Subhana Allah and as you find the Quran it begins by mentioning right in the beginning of the first three four, which talks about the believers and it talks about next one or two is about the disbelievers you know the risks the journey the Koran the following and Reverend Bo Alia
you know whom he talks about? Because for some of us when we come to slaughter Torah we we don't seem to understand the language
it spends the next pages are talking about whom the monarchy or the hypocrites you have your own Allah well, Alina, one may have their own agenda and for some women is going to be in Morocco.
Morocco, that's how the Quran begins. These interviews trying to deceive trick a lot. Those who believe the only trick and deceive their own selves, woman. They cannot even perceive it inside their hearts the sickness and a lot of contact with increases sickness inside their hearts. That's not the type of Muslim we want to be inside. So to find some powerful is inside it. And many of us if we understood the language of foreign and mentioned skateable body, we can
learn from the book have a left hander behind their backs, as if they don't know what happens to many people after Ramadan, straight out the window. As a totally new NaVi barbaric interview with a full moon.
Do you believe in part of the book and reject another part of the book? That's what happens to many Muslims. Then we talk about the state of the Muslim The answer is quite simple. In the law, now you may be coming had a you may be unforeseen. No will never ever change a condition or state of a people until they don't change their own selves. And that's a reality that most people is Islam maybe rising is a what they say renascence or resurgence of Islam safwat that he stabbed me as they say they may be by the same time there are many, many people who are far away from the deen of Allah.
And you can see that in Ramadan. Where does everybody come from Wolf, a southern
little cutter a point where you don't find space. You've never seen these people ever in your life. But everyone is watching saying make sure you come to live further. And according to
according to random is no strong proof that layers of color is what the 27th night. That's the that's the stance that the Imam should teach to people that this is good to come to the mercy last televise the ordinance etc. But there is no concrete proof that every single year that the 27th is relative color. Rather if I had even said Muslim or Buhari that was not mistaken, that the prophet SAW inside a dream is frustrating in mind because obviously the measure that he had constructed or bill made upon the fiber that was
The roof. So if you began to rain heavily, the water will come through and seep onto the ground, and you find the ground will become muddy. So, he saw in a dream that he was frustrating to be in mud. So, when you relate that to his companions, that was the 21st you need that it rained, and that was the 21st night of Ramadan. So he had already mentioned his proof that in relation to other can be the 21st time can be the 23rd can be the 25th February 27, and can even be the 29th. And especially if we differ when Ramadan begins. So now look, go back. What does that mean now that every single night in the last 10 nights should be what should be focused?
Especially many of us because we're differing, aren't we between this country, that country or whatever it may be, and there is no concept some people want to come in, you know, politics becomes the bandwagon of Ramadan, some people should feel most proud of any of the of the rest of the talk about politics are the common emotion so and so is the sois corrupted to come and spend your emphasis on the machine. Or they're changing the day of Ramadan because it's the King's birthday, which is this column in effect, so a waste of time. Okay, it's all a waste of time. There's no proof that's also told them to change the date and even Earth inside the best advance have clearly stated,
you force with the majority of the people inside your country. If it differs with Makkah and Medina no harm, even difference by two days, three days, you forced with the masses of the majority inside your own country simple. So therefore to answer their country's what some people are trying to push, that they impressing that the whole world is to pass with them, they understand that the time difference is a time zone is different lands is different visualization based on a headache soon at first, when you visualize it, when you visualize it, that means that every country will have its own sighting of the crescent, and it will change depending on the location. So they don't impose upon
any individual. They say to you fast with the masses of the people inside your country, and you break your fast, even if they happen to be guess what it is they happen to be wrong.
If they happen to be wrong, you force with them the masses of the country. So you travel to a different land now, they fostered a totally different day. You know, from our blessing country, we forced to three days later, I was there once they forced the two days after everybody in the world has started Ramadan, they started different names, some of the brothers they were upset. And the first was given to them over the research that they have to force with us. Because that is the day that the country has begun and you force with them and you break your force with that land with that unique area. So you will know for a fact that as you're doing your masters in this world, is a
planting ground for the hereafter. So we have to take the right opportunity to benefit during the days and during this opportunity on this earth. As you find a hadith a Salah Illa sada when Juma Tula Giamatti, one prayer to another prayer, one human to another Juma one Ramadan to another Ramadan kufr to lima bean ohana much to libertine cabaret is an exploration of the Midas sin that takes place. Those person avoids any major sins. What does Hadith mean? In today's tutorial about explained one prayer to another prayer, so you create one prayer, go back to work or back to your family, your email is slightly dropped, it changes doesn't it? Isn't that true? That alone is given
again, you once again you revitalize your email. So the effects of one prayer takes you to another prayer. That's what you find that prayer is short, in the meaning the effects of demand are short. By consumer demand, the effects of Juma don't last you walk up the machine of the door, the powerful the copy of the email, as we find the Prophet, his eyes would read him and his voice would become angry. And he would say harsh words on the sermon to wake the people up to is required to stir up their hearts, their emotional feelings and to make them shed tears as they're visualizing paradise or visualizing the El fires. That impact of that hope by the year. Unfortunately for many of us, we
just walk out the bat and here it goes. The impact loss. We will wait until when until your homies until the following Thursday. And guess what? hey presto in the morning is what you're going to learn. That's the impact. Likewise Ramadan, the 2930 days of fasting, the impact of that email or 2930 days of tuning yourself or purifying yourself, the impact goes all the way until when till now. Till Chaga and guess what as our batteries begin to drain most of our eating normally drinking normally living a normal life. Guess what Ramadan comes in again. And once again we enter into a life of spirituality and devotion and once again so we find
In this area cognition However, all of us our directions are different
it's quite sad just like in life everyday life our directions are different. Even at times in the month of Ramadan our directions are different as well. There are some people may just be
there is some people who meet the month of Ramadan with discontent and displeasure
Don't be surprised. They are literally Muslims when Ramadan come, they are upset. They are upset that I can't eat in public office even in the Western world you can eat and drink in public no one knows etc by the Muslim lands in it's a great big taboo, you find that shops, restaurants everything is closed finished if you walk into a shop try to get a bite something to eat you know unless you convince them that you're traveling or something nobody will really serve you and most shops will be open so some people they find a crate the any disk contained inside the hard now account go and open the account eat country combo at night, as every area says that a religious tip and everyone's
praying and fasting. So they they're unhappy. They are literally unhappy that is now the month of Ramadan. So then somebody would begin to do, man Yes, that will be suffer, we'll have some people ready to meet the monk Ramadan via excessive traveling and running away.
Don't be surprised. You find some Muslims will intentionally leave a Muslim environment and try to use the excuse. You know, you don't need to force when you're traveling. This is true. Once again goes back to what is your intention. If your intention is to come out of a Muslim environment, so that you can't force and you don't need to force
that your intention is an evil intention. There are some people who meet a month of Ramadan with excessive food. All the people needed probably took your home made sure that the freezer is full with samosa and chicken tikka. And this that and the other people getting it prepared right now aren't they.
And when you open the freezer, once most of missing all hell breaks loose. We fill up that fridge once again, that one's the most affected and gone down. So some people assume they're worried about an intro you could you're trying to figure out when you hear a verb and you can smell it briyani this, some people have kind of been pre they've eaten so much. And you actually should be eating after throwing
in some of the machines and food is quite sad to mention this. Normally between strings after another Muslim, what it most machines do is straight away they pray. But this happens in Ramadan is seven, eight minutes 10 minutes for you to have a nice snack and then to pray when you should test the sunlight every time for Muslim benavente with karma, they should be recording. There should be two units of prayer where he wants to pray them, get ready make Google come into the machine prepared himself. But in Ramadan, you find 10 minutes are given now for people to have a light snack or whatever it may be not to say it's haram but look at the mentality likewise fudger for many
massages happens it goes all the way to what the earlier time because it's convenient already up. So we may as well pray budget at the time the rest of the year the furniture is paid when right as the last time Why is it praying provider the last time yes it may be convenient may be acceptable. So we find the prayers to be prayed when at the beginning time. I have boulangerie the way to handle the most beloved action to Muslim that Allah is Allah, Allah walk to the prayer, and it's beginning time, right and it's due time is the best time but now we can see how you come upon, everything is just over. And then you find for free. The category that we should be searching for is those who
meet the month of Ramadan with happiness, with contentment, that, you know, maybe it's not been a good year of singing of mistakes, or being out of focus that this may Allah has given me another opportunity to better myself, just as we began our lecture with a trophy. Meanwhile, you Subhana Allah, that he was most proud to announce this an individual that gives the individual opportunities to do good actions will lead to failure, then as the unknown sabudana whoever strives in our paths, we will open up our paths for those individuals. So first made that sincere intention. And all of us we hold the intention and challenge to become a better individual to become more focused. This is
the ideal opportunity, the month of Ramadan, to make those positive steps towards change because the whole environment is a very easy environment, where you may have found it difficult before. But now you can find it more easier. likely find where people may not be praying on a regular basis. Take that month of Ramadan to begin to become more functional and praise and reasonable. We mentioned this is because especially in our culture, you find that many people will fast but they don't pray five times a day. And many people will rush to pray so lots of rubbish and they don't pray the daily prayers to pray thoroughly is highly recommended. But technically not that we're encouraging this
but just to teach us all to help us to understand how sometimes we mix it
Now, technically, if you did not prepare our wage, so after issue, you know, pray behind the email or the eight or 20. Or if you follow the view of 36 and add some more statements as well. If you do not face that are with us tired, it's a long day, the summer days got work in the morning, you have an exam, you have to travel you have to do something, you're not feeling to where you want to rest. Technically you're not pray, you are not sinful.
Okay, we're not encouraging that. No, say that. Now, suppose we say right, I heard a mistake. I'm not going to Petra we know technically, you're not sinful, but it's highly recommended. You should come and pray. Now many people rush and carry on this highly recommended action and they don't pray five times a day. Some of us we believe that if I don't pray throw, guess what they believe. They believe in come fast in the morning. Okay, that's a common belief. If I don't pray throw away or count fast in the morning. That's when many of the people they flock to Asian subcontinent flock to be the preys on that intention and that's incorrect. And likewise, we find that if you are not some
credible mentioned and these are harsh words, this is only to wake us up. Once again, if you're fasting and you're not praying five times a day and once again your fasting is invalidated
Okay, that's just to highlight the severity of the affair. We're not pushing anybody away if you're if you're not praying five times it No problem. Any we're just highlighting the severity in a Muslim land. That is the stance of a lot of our inner mother you fast and we don't pray your fasting has been validated because prayer comes before the fasting and was legislated before fasting. So that's another thing we do is Ramadan to work upon that inshallah, that if I'm doing this good deed of fasting etc. to why we're not praying. Why not take an opportunity to make your life as an act just as we began with to plan those who have worked have career and booked your holidays for when for
Ramadan? The last 10 nights of Ramadan or any more days in Ramadan you can perform your liberty you can be away I don't know Muslims have the sheduled as we began we can't you book now you could those people in 2007 a book the Olympics holidays, haven't they? Some people even booked their tickets from them. You know, yes, we think they're crazy. That's discipline up and then the day when they make you don't make it as simple as Muslims. So if you know that this year, Ramadan is going to pull that this period, you know how you're going to fall in this period. Then take that opportunity and you can take your unrelieved you could take those days, especially when you put them on will be in
holidays. Somebody from school from college university a prime opportunity to focus more home in more phenomenon and to reap the benefits of bettering oneself so those days of rebirth is strengthened you and you return back to the the wider community so that's defined in the early murders solidified they were happy they used to rejoice the month of Ramadan has come and after the month of Ramadan, we should ask those from the accepting legally actions in front of us. possibly some of the reasons we will we take some positive some questions which Allah The reason why he could find these hurdles regarding Ramadan is tangible. Misha is the heart, our hearts, many of our hearts
living in the West have got chewed to desires and temptations.
Every difficult disease to overcome is other temptations of life a person can overcome them. When desires enter deeply into the heart. That becomes a great big obstacle in the life of the individual. Likewise, if I'm shackled to
a level of wealth, makes it difficult burdensome for the individual in need to spend their money. The appropriate moment in the month of Ramadan is described as Joe word can be seen the early morning breeze. Anything that was given to me is give it away give it away give it away. Imagine that that was the Prophet Muhammad and give it away wherever you have just given giving, giving away a lot of time that would bless the person more wealth, more wealth, more enriched look at Abu Bakar Sunday. How would you be well if he gave away How would you return back in another form? And that's the person takes that opportunity that wealth remains in your hand. It is an entity your heart
remains inside your hand it will always benefit you enters into your heart It will be a form of disruption. That's the core I mentioned them 10 different hats had to do memento hipbone you will never ever attain piety. So it isn't to dress in a pious manner to pray the pious man and locodoco Ron mentioned had to film Nima
Did you don't spend of the things that you love? You read it up see you this is to see where can we get the explanation is first that you find that a Buddha he had a garden this garden was known by everybody in Medina, even the Prophet because of a drink from the well from the water the spring will eat the fresh dates when he heard this ayah that you will never attain piety and Tiki don't spend the things that you love. He said you're a pseudo love all this garden you know my garden, all the facing away from Laci commoner
Imagine that that's the level of email that entered into their hearts, that they keep everything in a wave of lost contact and loss. And we should not give anything away. But the point is that we try to do that Sham, a lightweight, fun shadow to burn a love of food makes for some was difficult in eating too fast and in Ramadan. So we this is the time to tune the body think about the power of fasting that I've mentioned, is to reflect upon the poor individuals, how many of them not just for one month, but for many years of their life, by the water that we drink is pure water and
the water they drink is contaminated. It's mixed with mud. With faith, they have no choice but to do what to drink it.
So we should be thinking is what I'm about and the food that we enjoy, with our families, all of us I'm sure they know none of us can say this country that I don't have a good Amazon terms of eating and drinking, that take up some work and some opportunity to send some money away to those people. Buy them some gifts for Ramadan Don't get involved in political dimension that don't give to so and so don't give to so and so you stand all alone in front of a Muslim 100 Allah and those poor children, those poor orphans, those poor family, those poor women, that we all get to dress well and eat well on the days of read excetera send them a gift, send them a gift, send them some money, and
you may not recognize it in your life. But those poor people from you all I need of the hour, those poor people that when they raise their hands and they say oh, bless this person, you said this wealth, you said this food who said that clothing. Imagine that your RS applications come in for us benefits coming for us for just doing something so simple and we will have these opportunities in our life. But many of us become hesitant in trying to gain that opportunity. So in the month of Ramadan
and finally conclusion that we mentioned this amount of tobacco still for month over mistake for the whole the whole theme of Ramadan.
quotevalet camassia cannot put a ban in the minimum publikum nandakumar.
Fast in the prescribed for you as it was prescribed to those people that came before you that you may attain taqwa consciousness of a lot of time that is in generic humans, our actions have been placed there for you to gain God consciousness. That's the intent of many of the actions that we don't gain that it becomes an evidence against us. So the actions we're doing to bring us a Chicago, Illinois, USA Canada. Likewise Another benefit of Ramadan is as you saw them, each one of us should make a strong resolution to be focused because of what I mentioned is talking about Ramadan am a man who needs a restricted set days. Because none of us know if we're ever going to come back to another
Ramadan. So a person has to have as we saw a strong resolution commitment, they're going to be focused this month of Ramadan, next refine there are a lot less who had a little early for us colors kind of give us the trophy and the ability in action that we do know what you think oh, this is because of my own. So my own mentality, my own strength, our own ability now, it's all from whom from the last time that
I mentioned what he does the underneath for me Sorry, oh gee Buddha with a dairy that they earn for the study boonie What do you mean ob I love your show do the seven asks about me I am close call upon Allah and Allah call upon me and I will respond to your call and rectify your affairs. So the person sincerely calls upon last 100 month of Ramadan. This is mentioned all in the context of Ramadan calling upon or not so Canada Allah, like our divine another benefit that we all need to read is to know
is the citation of the Quran itself and mentioned talking about the context of Ramadan Shaka Ramadan, and let the zero fee or hotel dinners, obey the native minute Buddha word for the month of Ramadan is the month of Ramadan, Mr. Malik will leave all of his doors, all of his teachings or the lecturing everything, and spend the whole month focusing upon what
people always ask him what to do. Rather than just holding focus in upon the program. read the Koran standard, read, intercede. implemental for and memorize the purpose, because the greatest tool, the greatest weapon for your email, after belief in a boss panda is the word of Allah Subhana Allah, wherever you go, if you have those words inside your chest, inside your mind, that you will reach other successful individuals. And if you understand those words, with a testament on you understand the word of God that makes you powerful individual in the sense that you're able to protect yourself in the womb personally even the home around you because you have these words of God
Close Combat within your heart and comprehend them and understand them. But that's when a person comes, follow the anisotropy. If you don't understand the Arabic language, then my advice to myself and the rest of your respective button sisters is to go home. And to read that chapter read that Jews was being read most of because we can read English fluently, we possibly go ahead of the email. So when you come the following day, when you hear with color, Mousavi moves us at this you will read it. You don't need to be an expert in Arabic. But if you read it, you think it right. Sufi Baka is talking about this context. Most other salon. This is where use appropriate use of the story use
about a salon. But if you're not bothered to read it, you're just going to be standing there drifting away. There was some earlier mentioned based upon the hobbies a person gains only what fatigue and tiredness inside the trolley. There is no benefit for them. So the person comes engaged, I'm going to benefit from the call and the words of the Quran. So you read a juice every single day. By the 29th 30th day we will compete in one region.
If you follow the EMA for 29 or 30 days, you'd have heard that the Quran for a whole month as two colons and if you read the Koran in a language you understand not to say that's the program but that could be possibly three four arms. So imagine that in one month, in a person you need each other. And he does that in China. They will in each other will stop the charges take some possibly some questions or some corrections in China
May Allah reward the chef for coming down giving us such an inspirational talk and making us think at the same time
Firstly, I'd like to apologize I know I said that we're gonna have a break in between the two talks but you know, as things were running quite smoothly, we thought we just continue straight through. So the refreshments will be after Margaret for both brothers and sisters. If you guys can last that long. Okay.
fast way to refer to multivitamin Canada.
Okay, so we're gonna go straight through to the question and answer session. handler sisters have
many questions to ask, which is always good. So we'll ask we'll start with the sister sisters question and then we'll move on to our brothers and sisters and a brother I'm very conscious of time so we'll try to make this in about we'll try to do this in about seven minutes each other.
So when needed to further comms Can you make sure that we are working quickly
obviously many of us Muslim we have this concept that everything is a quick fix you know we live in a in a false world so you know you want to grab something to eat go to McDonald's. To take money out the bankers want to shake went to America just go through a drive thru bank and you want to get married and get divorced at the same time go to a drive thru church. So they have in the States. So obviously some of us we think you know, as soon as I prayed for both power and response should be given instantly. At times the response is given instantly, at times response is stored to the individual. At times a calamity could be before the interval is removed, and something else is given
to the individual or the reward to be given inside their head often. Likewise for even payment. Josie you mentioned the famous in his column teskey of the people famous student, the most common student in the Tamia documentary that he mentioned, that person makes the Atomos panda that the dog is like a sword. Now, a sword is sharp, you will always strike and harm an individual. But the impact of the sword depends on upon the usage of the sword. So the prerequisites of the person, the strength of the arm, the ability to use it comes into play. So there is a sword. See, lateral movement is a sword the weapon of the believer, by the way the sword is used and understood is where
many of us don't understand the way to make the partial loss. We may think we do the right there are times when Mike was mentioned that you're earning something the person carries on making the response is very, very close to the time the last time that Allah wants to test a provision in the beginning is a science of the art. You know in the first journey, your drawings are answered instantly. But as your image begins to develop, and as you begin to mature, your daughter is deveined to begin to see that are you really committed? Are you really focused? Do you really believe because just like excuse expression about the child, if every time they try and ask for
something, give the child something that child to comfort, a spoiled brat? Okay, so many of us Muslims, we spoiled individuals. We think we are the chosen children of God as they say,
okay, that's what many Muslim days
You know the tone is very deep. The Quran uses certain words or the Quran, booty, but it will build up to a number for people. indignities been smashed upon them wherever they go. Yes, that may be talked about certain group of individuals. But I've seen a mention of or an omen or an emperor be enough for me now, because there are a brother lesson is to be taken from the generality of the words, and not from the specifics of Revelation. So we, as Muslims at the moment, are living under the wrath of God.
Most Muslims don't want to think like that, you know, read sort of 30 have said at least 17 times a day, guidance to the Prophet those who have not sent the straight or those who have an anger.
You know, many of us under the anger from Canada,
devoran, the heating of interest of loans of mortgages
all throughout the Muslim world when Tahira Alba New Caledonia you know, the Quran mentions only one sin inside the program. you commit Zina, you drink alcohol, you still lie, cheat, love commit homosexuality mentioned inside the program,
you could be forgiven could be part of one sentence or the Quran mentioned. If you enter that into your life, then know that Allah and His Messenger have declared war for that individual. Some Muslim we don't think we think I'm return a war upon us or this bush award. This is the Warriors but we could be true. Have you ever sat down and think that was declared war upon us
the corruption inside I believe the corruption is our actions is driving many years away, not adding the blessing of Santa Ana. So sometimes the dirt is about is ripening is about to drop, like a fruit or even payment Josie mentioned is about to drop this what happens. Many of us are some of us we turn away and when we turn away, the fruit drops. And we
don't have the patience.
you said earlier,
if your intention is for Ramadan to be good,
and you've done that too bad
example people have jobs.
Maybe not allowed for example.
Say they stopped work for the whole month, but then they go back to their job.
But as I mentioned that a person has a double intention inside their heart in their mind. after Ramadan they're going to go back to what they normally do. So first of all number does a haram action which is evident from Ramadan whether it be in Ramadan or outside of Ramadan. That action does not affect
