00:04:49 --> 00:04:59

companionship of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his Sahaba mean Yoruba aalameen. Brothers and sisters, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala provides many exams

00:05:00 --> 00:05:49

was in the Quran of the farmer. And how the farmer he plants that seed, he waters the seed, he looks after that seed. And as it grows, he has to protect his investment he has to protect that crop. And there comes a time where he's able to chop down all crop and make money from it and provide for his family. The reason why Allah subhana wa Taala provides these kinds of examples in the Quran is to give us an example or help us understand about our relationship and how we're supposed to view the akhira. Just like the farmer, he plants the seed and he looks after it, and he invest, he's investing his time. But there comes a day where he benefits from all the hard work. Likewise a

00:05:49 --> 00:06:32

believer at the end of the day that we put in a lot of hard work, and at the end of the day we all insha Allah will receive that we work from Allah subhanho wa Taala all the reward of our hard work which is inshallah called gentle for those who Allah Inshallah, but the idea is that to prepare for tomorrow, and that's why very interestingly, Allah subhanho wa Taala whenever he talks about tomorrow in the Quran, often it is in reference to the Hera, whenever ALLAH SubhanA wa talks about the future, it is often in reference to the akhira. So the idea that I'm trying to get to all of you are trying to help you understand is that there is a understanding within our deen to prepare for

00:06:32 --> 00:07:17

tomorrow. Now when it comes to our current situation, the we are in the month of Shaba. And we finished the month of Rajab, now we're in the month of Shaban, and we're less than 30 days away from the month of Ramadan. And it is a month where Allah where the provinces that Allahu alayhi wa sallam he referred to this month as a month, where most people are in the state of hafla. Most people are in the state of heedlessness. And what we have to understand is that what that means is that between Rajab and Ramadan, this month is often a month that where we need to prepare ourselves for the Ramadan for the month of Ramadan, but rather Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was telling us that rather

00:07:17 --> 00:08:00

than preparing for Ramadan, most people are simply unaware, or people are in the state of heedlessness, and they're not preparing for the month of Ramadan. They are in the state of God's love. So first of all, is that what do we learn from the month of Rajab? How are we supposed to prepare in Shabbat? And how are we supposed to benefit in Ramadan? This is the mindset of a believer, you plant the seed in Rajab, you water that seed in Siobhan and you harvest those crops in the month of Ramadan. Often we wanted make a very drastic lifestyle change in the month of Ramadan, it does not work. Any time in life when you try to bring a drastic lifestyle, or you try to make a

00:08:00 --> 00:08:45

drastic lifestyle change. It does not work. It may work for two three days. But there is no consistency in that action. And that is why it been Rajab has in has emphasized upon this, that you plant your seed in the month of Rajab, what that means is that whatever we want to do in the month of Ramadan, we start doing that now. Many of us probably have not even read the Quran in Ramadan. Yes, many of us many of us have made it a point to read the Quran in Ramadan. But there are many people in the community who have never read the Quran from cover to cover at least once in the month of Ramadan. Well, if you want to even achieve something like that, you have to begin in Rajab, I'm

00:08:45 --> 00:09:23

not saying that you have to finish the entire Quran and Rajab, but you have to at least are reading the Quran and Raja, that is how you will build up the Quranic reading in the month of Shaban and then you will you'll do much better Inshallah, in the month of Ramadan. Let me give you another example. When we talk about the farmer, when we talk about the farmer, the farmer understands very well, that if I'm trying to grow watermelons, for example, because I need to sell watermelons in the market, he understands that it takes a certain amount of time to grow watermelons. If you even look up on Google, how much it How long does it how long it takes, it probably takes around four to six

00:09:23 --> 00:09:59

months, as many people have predicted that this is how much it takes. This is how much time it takes to grow a general watermelon. Now the farmer understands that if the watermelon season is in summer, that I need to start planting my seeds in February. And they do that why? Because then they can harvest at the right time. If they're not harvesting and they're not planting at the right time. The weather is going to have an impact on that plant on that seed and they will not be able to make money. So the farmer understands that whatever fruit they're growing, they know how long it takes and the plant the seed

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

At the right time, why? Because it comes to matters of this dunya they use that money to pay their bills. Unfortunately, you and I, we don't understand that language there. We're here we're talking about Hassan and here we're talking about good deeds. We may not see the benefit of good deeds in this dunya but the benefit but good deeds in itself, the high Senate rd is the only currency of the euro is the only thing that matters in the grave and in the euro. So today you and I we take this very lightly, but brothers and sisters ask every single person how many Jeunesses we've been part of this one year how many geneticists have we been to the graveyard for how many people have we buried

00:10:43 --> 00:11:26

how many people have we witnessed being buried there? They those people, as many scholars they say but Josie says that if they were given one wish, what what they could have back they will say one day in the month of Ramadan. And first of all, we have not even reached the month of Ramadan I ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us reach the month Ramadan. I mean noble Allah mean, but the point is Brothers Sisters, we find ourselves in this situation every single year, and we have no plan. We have no idea how we're going to approach them Yvonne but we'll move on is a time where we go through a spiritual journey is a time where we make ourselves better with Allah He each one of us we have a

00:11:26 --> 00:12:10

spiritual disease. Any person who says that I am absolutely picture perfect the way I am. No, you are not no one is perfect, neither am I perfect nor you are perfect. We all have flaws. And Ramadan is that time where we fix and correct that flaw. There are many people who claim that I am the most religious will Allah He anyone who says that you are you when you think you are the most religious, you have the biggest problem. Each one of us we have problems. It is our job that mantra job has already gone by many of us have not even planted that seed yet. And now the month of Siobhan is here, we may even go through the month of Siobhan without planting that seed. And then in the month

00:12:10 --> 00:12:52

of Ramadan, we're trying to plant that seed, water that seed and then grow and benefit from that seed. It's impossible brothers and sisters. So that is why the month of Rajab is that time where we make that change in our life. Now when it comes to the mantra Raja, just for a point of perspective. When we talk about an SR, one Mirage for a moment, let's just say yes, there are a lot of actigraph that did it. Start with a mirage happened in the month Raja or not? I'm not gonna talk about the story now. But all I want to take from that story is the fact that Allah revealed and Allah gave Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam five times daily prayers. Now not only that, the month of

00:12:52 --> 00:13:35

Rajab, as we all know is considered as a shadow Haram is considered as one of the sacred months. And in the sacred months. What people would do long time ago is that they will make sure that all wars and all battles will cease during those four months, the four sacred months, you have the cada the hijama haram and then you have Roger, and these four months there will be no battles. Roger stands by itself all alone. The other three months are consecutive months, but Rajab stands by itself, all alone, in this month. Think about what kind of changes a you and I we can make in the month of Rajab, keeping in mind, and so I will mirage. And if we take the opinion that it happened in the

00:13:35 --> 00:14:22

month of Rajab, in the month of Rajab, the change that you and I we can make is, we can start making sure that we are punctual about our five times daily prayers in the month of Rajab, not only that, but in the month of Rajab, we started getting rid of all the sickness in our heart, the hatred, the malice, the jealousy that unite we harbor in our hearts towards others, we can get rid of that. Let go, let go of your anger, let go of your grudge against others. This should be done in the month of Rajab, now when the heart is clean, and now we have seen a lot in our life. Now we have begun this spiritual journey. We are coming closer to Allah with Salat, and we are coming close to Allah with a

00:14:22 --> 00:14:59

clean heart. Now the month of Rajab is the month where we water that seed, and what that means is that also Lhasa Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he will often fast in the month of Shabaan he will often fasten them on the Chava. And, and especially he would fast often as many a hottie they say he would fasten the beginning 15 days and then the next 15 days he will take a little of a break so that he can once again rejuvenate himself and regain his energy to ensure that he has a very meaningful Ramadan. So in this month of Shaban, what are you and I were supposed to do? Once again, if we are coming close to Allah, we have

00:15:00 --> 00:15:41

We have recurrent reconnected to Allah, our hearts are clean and the month of Shaban, we start fasting in the month of Shabbat. We started reading Quran in the month of Shaba. And we increase our liquor in the month of Shaba and start teaching your kids exactly what Ramadan is. Let me be very clear when it comes to the kids. As adults, we understand what Ramadan is. We understand the importance of Ramadan, but ask yourself when you were the age of your own kids, were you taking them on this seriously? Were you taking Ramadan? This seriously? The answer for many of us here would be no. When it comes to children, they may not understand the magnitude of Ramadan. They may not

00:15:41 --> 00:16:23

understand the spirituality of Ramadan. They may not understand what is the hikma and the reward behind fasting, but it is our job as parents to keep on educating them to keep on pushing them forward. If our kids fasted last year, 10 days this year, we encourage them we provide some incentive that starting from now start making up their minds now because by the way, when Ramadan starts Yes, the first week for many of them, especially in Plano, they're gonna have all for spring break. So that's a good thing that they're going to be able to be at home while the mantra of avant begins. But after that, they do have school, they do have school, they have homework, they have

00:16:23 --> 00:17:06

deadlines to meet, they have projects as it is because now we are approaching the end of this the academic year. So they're gonna have responsibilities. But as parents, we push our kids as parents, we encourage them as parents we provide incentive to them. They you fasted last year 10 days this year, inshallah you fast for 20 days, push them, give them a reward for that when you see your teenage kids, when you see your teenage kids, not taking them along seriously, encourage them from now to do this. Sit down. Think about it from now. Play even some YouTube videos on your on your Smart TV at home. Let people in your family hear about them avant because when they hear and hear

00:17:06 --> 00:17:46

and hear about Ramadan, that inshallah by the time Ramadan comes, they will be prepared for the month of Ramadan. Another thing to keep in mind Subhan Allah from the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where he says that a month where most people are in the state of Allah, brothers, sisters, of course, we cannot overlook of what is happening in Gaza. And of course, we always talk about visiting our husbands and our hot rods and so forth. But the reality is that in this month, let us also not fall into into the state of Allah of what is happening over there. We overall as a Muslim Ummah, we are in a state of La Fleur, we are pulled in so many different

00:17:46 --> 00:18:23

directions. Even now there are people when you tell them what it was, you know, you're you're hearing people say now that I have too many things going on in my life right now, this is not something that can be worried about. I'll make dua and that is the best I can do. Brothers Sisters, yes, there's only few things. There's very limited things that we can do here as a Muslim community. But Subhanallah what's my fear is that Ramadan starts and we keep on seeing the casualties grow in the month of Ramadan. It's already been over 100 days that our Muslim brothers and sisters have been going through all this. And yes, our Muslim brothers here in America and all over the world. We

00:18:23 --> 00:19:05

showed a lot of reaction when this first started, and now the reaction is dying down. Now you're finding less and less people who are proactive about this matter. So even during this time, when we talk about waffleh waffleh is in all capacity. Let us not be in the state of flow regarding our spirituality. Let's not be in the flow regarding our Quran. Let us not be in love flow about our relationships. Let us stop being in the flow of what is happening to the Muslims all over the world. If we as a human being, if I cannot do so much for my brothers and sisters in the USA, then do whatever we can do. There's very limited that we can do as it is but when we try when we become a

00:19:05 --> 00:19:45

muffler when we become a muffin when we become heedless and oblivious of what is going on there. That in itself is a crime. That is wrongdoing. We need to be aware of what is going on with our brothers and sisters of Azusa. It's not that it's been going on. It's part of what we are now is part of our life. We have to keep on hearing this know whatever we can do we keep on doing forward inshallah for our brothers and sisters in Gaza. And finally, when it comes to the month of Ramadan, brother and sisters, let's make sure that this Ramadan is our best Ramadan. You've heard this sentence before so many times. But you ask yourself, each one of us we ask ourselves, did I change

00:19:45 --> 00:19:59

last year in Ramadan? Did I change and move on? If there was even one good thing that you change in your life and hamdulillah your Ramadan was productive, but we have to make sure that each one of us we all have sicknesses. We are sick

00:20:00 --> 00:20:36

You know what's the biggest issue when it comes to a sick person is when they deny the fact that they are sick. The doctor is telling them you are sick and they're like, You know what? I'm absolutely fine. I'm absolutely healthy. The doctor is saying Take this medication and he or she is saying, I don't need to take any medication because I'm absolutely fine. That is where you and I we are today. That is where you and I we are today. We feel like that there is nothing wrong with me how many times I approach people I am the most religious man and no one follows the Quran sunnah more than I do. No brothers and sisters, we all have flaws, and we need to fix those flaws. Let's

00:20:36 --> 00:21:17

not lie to Allah subhanho wa Taala Yes, we may show our face in front of others. But we cannot lie to Allah. We cannot lie to ourselves. We have to be honest with ourselves. And let's try to use some avant to make that change in our life. So the month of Rajab is the month of planting that seed, and the month of Siobhan is the man to plant that seed and to water that seed in the month of Ramadan is the month to benefit from the from from what has come from that seed. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us the trophy to use Rajab and Shaban and Ramadan in the best way possible. Mirabella al Amin Baraka BarakAllahu li Walakum fipple and Alim whenever I know what you're coming at you with

Lastly inshallah I will say this that when it comes to anything, the very first Hadith that we find in Sahih al Bukhari is about Nia. The very first Hadith that we find in Rio Salado Hain is about Nia, what is our Nia going forward? What is our Nia when it comes to the month of Ramadan? I just said you don't have to make drastic changes in

00:22:08 --> 00:22:47

your life. Just bring one change in your life. If you go through 30 years of Ramadan 40 years in Milan and you make only one change every single year. That means that you would have brought 40 new habits 40 new good habits in your life. Unfortunately Ramadan comes Ramadan goes I will be in sha Allah if Allah Subhan Allah has given me life and given us life. We will be sending here on the day of wreath also saying that we were talking about Ramadan, now in Ramadan is over what are we going to do? So keep in mind brothers and sisters this is a very important time the year we talk about Ramadan, Allah subhana wa that talks about Ramadan the Quran, Allah talks about Ramadan in the sense

00:22:47 --> 00:23:27

that it is the month of the Quran. So less from now let's make it a point that we want to connect with the Quran. We want to increase in our Ibadat let go of all the grudges let go of all the grudges let go of all the hate, because the more our heart is occupied with people's hate, then there is no way that Allah can enter into that heart, because the heart is filled with something else. Try to imagine as a glass, if the glass is filled with water, you can put any you can put anything on top of that, when the glass is empty, you can fill something in that in that glass. Likewise if the heart is filled with hatred, jealousy, malice, and you know and all the the the

00:23:27 --> 00:24:07

spiritual diseases, there is no way that Allah can enter into the heart. We have to first empty out that heart clean out that heart so that we can put Allah and His Prophet SAW Salem in their love in our heart. I ask Allah subhana wa to ganas de tofi May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us Ramadan May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us many more Ramadan May Allah subhanho wa Taala make this Ramadan our best Ramadan so far in our life Mirabella Allah mean Allahu Masuda Islam one Muslim in Allah who must Islam one Muslim enough equally McCann Allahumma Sorona Allah mon holla finna Wofford Bella Donna was the hola Jana was female Ivana Why are female with Alana?
