Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh brothers and sisters This is your brother Muslim Khan. Welcome back to ask Muslim I guess today in shallow tyla what we're going to do is we're going to talk about Ramadan 2014. Here it is, again. It's come upon us by the will of Allah azza wa jal and we are all here enjoying its bodykits blessings. So I hope that wherever you guys are you all you guys are also enjoying the blessings and the bottom of Ramadan and is treating you well. Today I just really want to touch very briefly on one important concept that all of us have to keep in mind if you want to be that Ramadan superstar. The first thing really is to understand the hardship and

00:00:50--> 00:01:30

when I'm all done, I chose to stand outside here because the sun is literally burning on my face. It's extremely hard. We're almost at 40 degrees here in Toronto, I don't know it could be even more for some of you. But still Allah azza wa jal told us that you still have to fast what that teaches you and it is exactly what Paul is teaching us. Allah azza wa jal says in sorted earlier in Milan, what EU feasibility, you're going to go through pain after pain if you want to come into the path of Allah. So fasting in this month where everyone else is eating, it's the summertime you want to go out to the picnics, you want to enjoy your life. Allah said no, for one month, I want you to devote

00:01:30--> 00:02:10

that just to me and I want you to fast. This is really shows the discipline of a Muslim, it really shows how devoted we are to our Creator. It really shows that regardless what's happening around us, we are still here and we're still for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So at least at an individual level, I know that it's difficult, I know that it's hard. fidgeter. So earlier, Asia is so late and then you have tarawih you have so many things to do and everything in between. Allah is saying that this is the hardship that I want for you to go through. Why? Because there's one thing waiting for you. There's a gift, Alice's little Catherine and him say to him, Well, Odyssey Lennar home, Jen, Allah

00:02:10--> 00:02:43

says that I'm going to bury all of your ugly deeds. And then on top of that, I'm going to give you his he's going to give us his paradise. And we ask a lie. So would you like to give us his paradise. So this is really the fruits of why we go through this. Even some of our non Muslim friends probably think we're crazy for fasting in this weather and fasting in this time of the year. But really, and truly, that's the real joy of a Muslim, you should be very proud of yourself, you should be very proud of what you're doing. And you should be very proud that this is the sacrifice that you're going through every single day of your life, just so that you can please your Creator. If you can do

00:02:43--> 00:03:23

this, then everything else becomes easy. If you can put aside all the joy, the fun and the desire right now in the midst of all of it just for the sake of Allah. It really tells a lot about who you are really tells a lot about what kind of person you are. So you should be very, very proud of yourself that Ramadan is here. Take full advantage of every moment that you have take full advantage of its Baraka, its blessings, I hope in sha Allah hota Allah Allah blesses all of you that we can maximize this month to its full potential because Allah hytera So having said that, guys, I just want to take a personal loan. I wish you guys all a blessing shalom Oban May Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:23--> 00:03:26

Bless you all so that while a little boy he will work hard to
