Santa Monica Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh Bismillah Ohana Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah he Muhammad wa why the Li was so happy edgy marine about a salamati comply with aka two brothers and sisters wherever you may be asked Allah subhana wa Taala to help us or give us the ability to witness the month of Ramadan I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to accept from us and our do us and our I'ma in the month of Ramadan and ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada that wherever you may be, may Allah keep you and your family protected amenable to Allah mean. So yesterday, if you remember I talked about Takua and the fact that Ramadan is all about Toccoa the primary

00:01:11 --> 00:01:59

objective of Ramadan is Taco up. Now the question that I do want to ask is that what is the connection between staying hungry and thirsty and Taqwa? Because a lot of times even our children will come to us and say, okay, you know, what if I stay hungry and thirsty, and I feel and I will have sympathy and empathy for those who don't have anything to eat, I understand that. But then what is the connection between staying hungry and thirsty? And then piety and Toccoa and being connected to Allah? What is the correlation? I want to explain this first, the correlation or the connection is such that there are two things that we have in our life. What is necessities? Okay, and then

00:01:59 --> 00:02:43

things are the second thing is that the things that we want. So first thing is necessities, eating, drinking, companionship, there are so many things that are considered as necessities. And then there's things that we want to do in life, like things that are at times if we do something haram, or we do something that is prohibited by Allah subhanho wa taala. It is not a necessity, it is something that we want to do. Likewise, there's so many other things that are considered as things that we want to do, but they're not considered as necessities. Allah subhanho wa Taala when he keeps us hungry and thirsty, what the whole idea is, that if I'm keeping you away from fulfilling your

00:02:43 --> 00:03:24

necessities of life, then hopefully, you will stay away from those things that you want to do in life that are considered as haram. Hence, when you stay away from those things that are haram, and things that you want to do, then that is where Taqwa comes into the picture. If your life is, if your life is clean, if your life is such that you don't commit haram, that that means that you have taqwa in your heart. But if a person does come in Haram, that means there's a lack of Taqwa in their life. This is the connection that Allah keeps us away from our necessities, so that eventually we can stay away from those things that we would want to do, that are considered as the Muharram of

00:03:24 --> 00:04:07

Allah subhanho wa taala. This is the connection. So this is something that we all should understand. Now, as I said yesterday, to in the segment of Hadith of the day, the what is the benefits of Taqwa. As human beings we are incentive driven. We want to see benefits, you know, is similar to kami Liga, you know, if I do this, What benefit do I get? So, here I want to share some, I added the Quran, the what do we get when we apply taqwa in our in our life and when we have the court in our life? First of all, is that go back to the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that highlights his final sermon. It is mentioned in a hadith and one thing that we will notice is in his in his

00:04:07 --> 00:04:52

hospital, whether or in hospital whether the hotbar that he conducted, time after time, what is he reminding the Muslims? It took Allah it Akula it Akula fear Allah be cautious of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells us that do you want to be successful? If someone asked you and I do we want to be successful? Absolutely. We all want to be successful. We want to succeed in this dunya we want to sit succeed in the akhirah the question is that what do I need to do in order to succeed in both places? Allah says what the law law allows him to freehand have the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala perhaps you may be successful. Not only that Allah subhanho wa Taala he

00:04:52 --> 00:05:00

tells us in many places the Quran I want to share with you some very beautiful ones. First of all, is you know, have you ever found yourself in a

00:05:00 --> 00:05:47

deep trouble or in a deep problem, and you're always looking for solution. You're always looking for a way out. Allah subhana wa Taala says we're making yet tequila yeah Jah Allah Who Maharajah ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and the Quran says, Whoever has Toccoa in their life than Allah will create away from him, okay, Allah will create a way out for him. Now that means that in any situation we find ourselves in, Inshallah, Allah will create a way out for us. But not only that, but in the following I have the very next ayah Allah said, what? Why your resume in high Thula you have to say, Allah will give you sustenance from places that you can never ever imagine from. So Has it ever occurred

00:05:47 --> 00:06:26

to you, or it may have happened in your life, that you may have applied somewhere, you apply for a job somewhere and you never got the job. But the place where you never thought you may get a job, you actually got the job from there. Or how many times has it happened, that's something that you're not even expecting, and you got something from Allah subhanho wa taala. This is what happens when a person has Taqwa Allah says we will give him risk. Now see, here's the thing that we need to truly understand. And this is the most beautiful thing about Allah subhanaw taala that Allah tells us where that risk was coming from never. Allah says, I will give you from places where you cannot even

00:06:26 --> 00:06:28

possibly imagine.

00:06:29 --> 00:07:11

Now if we try to go deeper and we're like, where is this coming from? And where can Allah give me this? Allah say, you don't have to worry about that. The only thing I'm demanding from you is have taqwa in your life and leave your risk and your sustenance to me. Another ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, mania tequila, Allah Humann Amity he uses raw, Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us that if you have taqwa in your life, Allah will make your matters easy for you, your family affairs, inshallah are going to be easier than a lot of other people. Then when it comes to your job, it will be, it'll be easier in sha Allah, all your affairs of life in sha Allah will be easy.

00:07:11 --> 00:07:55

Once again, Allah is not guaranteeing a problem free or challenge free life. That's not what Allah is saying over here, Allah is saying that Allah will make your matters easy. That means that even if you're going through a problem, Allah will ease that problem. Now, you know, we can have a problem. And that problem can be a very painful experience. And it can be a very big problem. Or we can have that problem in our life. But Allah can make the damage. Minimal. Allah subhanaw taala can make that matter easy in the sense that dealing and coping with that issue is not going to be too difficult. Allah subhanho wa Taala also says in the Quran, yeah, you had a lady in Amman, who this is Allah

00:07:55 --> 00:08:41

referring to us talking to us, the believers, and even Misuzu the author and he says that when Allah says yeah, you Hola, Dina, I'm a no, it is our obligation to listen attentively. Because either Allah is going to say something very important that we must do, or he's going to tell us something very important that we must stay away from in this ayah Allah says, Yeah, you're living in Amman, Oh, you people who believe in tactical law. If you have the Taqwa of Allah subhana wa to Allah. Allah conferred on Allah subhanho wa Taala will create for you a criterion. How many times does it happen, that we're not able to make the right decisions? Sometimes we make a decision and once again

00:08:41 --> 00:09:19

for recall and means the ability to decide what is right and what is wrong. In terms of what is halal and what is haram. A lot of times we're not able to make those decisions. A lot of times we make decisions that we fall into the haram. Allah subhanaw taala is telling us when we have taqwa, Allah Subhan Allah will give us this ability that we can differentiate between what is halal and what is haram. Now it doesn't mean that we don't know what is halal and what is haram. But a lot of times when you and I if we learn and we do something that is haram, we know very well that is haram but Allah will you don't have enough ability within ourselves to take that which is halal, but

00:09:19 --> 00:09:59

eventually we go to the Haram so this is why Allah subhanaw taala says yeah, Jaya I come for recon and Allah subhanaw taala says that he will. He will give us ability to differentiate between truth and falsehood. Allah subhanho wa taala. He also says in the Quran, that Allah subhanaw taala was sent down tranquillity in the hearts of those people who have Taqwa, brothers, sisters, tranquility is one thing that you and I will all are looking for. We want to have a peaceful and content life. We want to have a life where we have no problems, or very few problems. Allah Subhan Allah is telling us that if we have taqwa in our life

00:10:00 --> 00:10:48

Then eventually Allah subhanho wa Taala will give us a life that is that has tranquillity. Another thing that you know we all are searching for and we look for is honor and dignity. Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells us that the person who has the most dignity the person who is the most dignified is not the person who comes from a certain ethnicity. It is not the person who speaks a certain language. It is a person who has a certain color of skin, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada he addresses mankind. Allah addresses mankind, the entire mankind entire humanity. He says in Hala, Panera Coleman beckoning, we're on the verge of commercial Obon, Wakaba, Elita raffle, in Accra Rama comb,

00:10:49 --> 00:11:03

the very the most dignified amongst you all the most noble amongst you all is that who, in acromial Kumar, in the law he at core calm is the person who has the most Toccoa in their life. So this is why brothers and sisters,

00:11:04 --> 00:11:43

at the end of the day there are so many benefits I can share. And of course, there are so many a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, wherein he mentioned it the law is law. And not only that, but there are a hadith that tells us also such as there's a hadith mentioned in other will Morford other will offered by the way is a book written by as a book of Hadith compiled by Imam Bukhari. Rahmatullah Ali, many people may not know this mumble hottie did not only compile sorry, who Behati he also compiled other one more fraud. And in there there's a hadith Narrated by Abu Hodo Viola Quran, where in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned that were the two things

00:11:43 --> 00:12:26

that can lead a person to jahannam it is the misuse of their * and their mouth, and where two things are going to lead a person to Jannah it is good character. And the second one is what Allah kocowa leads a person to Jana. So this is why let's try to make this month of Ramadan all about Toccoa once again, now we understand that what is the connection between staying hungry and thirsty and piety? And now we understand that if we have piety, there's not only one benefit, there are multiple benefits, benefits that will apply to us in this dunya benefits that will apply to us in the akhirah What more do we want? So Halloween What more do we want? This is Allah subhanaw taala

00:12:26 --> 00:12:48

giving us this and finally I want to share a dua also, where the Prophet SAW Allah Allah He was some he would always make this dua after this a lot Allahumma in that Ness a local Houda so as a Luca means I am asking you Ness I Luca means we are asking you alHuda what to call when to offer well Alina, this is Allah subhanho wa Taala
