hamdulillah it is a great blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he has given us this opportunity to witness the month of Ramadan And subhanAllah just looking at how packed and how full the masjid is.

00:00:14--> 00:00:47

It's just it's really breathtaking and it just really makes me happy to hamdulillah and this is the Yama and the blessing of Ramadan and ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada to accept from us may Allah subhanaw taala accept power to us. And I would strongly recommend that do not take any opportunity of Ramadan as light we try to do everything that we can avail every single opportunity that we can in sha Allah last night, we recited the very first juice and today in subtle Fajr we're able to finish a quarter of a juice into the quarter with juice into the second juice and

00:00:48--> 00:01:26

and the way we usually do that is that the very first four days we try to complete five juices and then one day when Jews inshallah and that way we finish on the 29th night of Ramadan in sha Allah. So keeping that in mind there is a very beautiful idea at the end of the very first job the very first para, it says ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says Sybil gotta love the color of Allah subhanho wa Taala woman Asad Amina Allah He said Baba, who is better than Allah subhanho wa Taala in terms of color. Now usually when you hear something like this, you're trying to wonder what exactly is ALLAH SubhanA wa are talking about, and a lot of times when you see the word color, a lot of times the word a

00:01:26--> 00:02:10

painting comes to our mind. And the more color that is on a paint, the more beautiful it is in essence, but truly when you stand very close to a painting, and you focus on one color, you do not really appreciate the entire painting till you don't take a step back and you look at the entire painting as a whole and then you're able to appreciate it. So when you when Allah subhanho wa Taala says the color of Allah subhanho wa Taala you wonder what exactly is ALLAH SubhanA wa talking about? But when you take a step back and you look at the entire first jewels and in essence, the entire suatu Bacara then you're able to appreciate what ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is saying, Allah subhanho wa

00:02:10--> 00:02:53

Taala starts off subtle Bacara by talking about three groups, there is a group of believers, there's a group of hypocrites and there's a group of people who don't believe in Allah subhana what the island and then after that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, If you are wondering is almost as if there is a question posed by Allah subhanho wa Taala that or if you are wondering what kind of a believer you need to be, then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you are a nurse or a boo Rob Bakuman levy Holika calm, well, Lavina min publikum La La Quinta Khan, again, Allah subhanho wa Taala when he talks about making him aware in our life, to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala to worship Allah.

00:02:53--> 00:03:33

Again, Allah brings Toccoa which this entire month is always about is about taqwa, and attaining the the awareness of Allah. And that Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that Do you want an example? And we say yes, we want an example, because you can understand a formula. But if you don't understand if you cannot put that next to an example, today, when we sit in a chemistry class, you say in a biology class, a science class, there is a formula right? In math, there's a formula, but then the professor brings in examples, and then you we take those formulas, and we put them side by side next to the examples and we use those formulas. So Allah is saying, I have given you the formula of

00:03:33--> 00:04:14

success, but let me give you an example also. And then Allah subhana wa Tada brings the example of Iblees and admire his salaam, the look at this one, this is a look of Allah and look at it what kind of a rebellious bug look and look and accretion he became of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah gave him so much knowledge, he was in the midst of the melodica. But when Allah says First, when Allah says everyone has to make sudo to Adam Alayhis Salam, he rebelled against Allah subhanho wa taala. So Allah is telling us do not become like him, but rather be like Adam Allah you salaam that he was conscious of Allah subhanho wa taala. And not only that, but there are also state that when Allah is

00:04:14--> 00:04:56

giving us the example of Adam, Allah you Sam, he is telling us that you and I as human beings, we are imperfect, we make mistakes, and Adam out of you some also made a mistake, but look at how Adam it is some he turned to Allah and look at what shaytaan did that even though he disobeyed Allah, he was adamant upon his disrespect of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then Allah says, Do you want more examples? And we say yes, we want more examples. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us the examples of Bani Israel. And Allah says that they were a prestigious OMA and because they violated the terms of their agreement, and because they did not hold up their covenant, Allah took them from

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

a very prestigious position and took them to the lowest of the low

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

We as Omar of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah has elevated this OMA, Allah says in the Quran Kontum Hydra OMA, you are the best of the nations. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about the misguidance and the disrespect of bunnies saw that they would question Musa alayhis salam, they will not question Who side of you some because they wanted to learn. One is that a chef says something to you and you ask a question back because you want to learn know when Musa you son was say that you must do this. They began to doubt Masada you some and that is the question Musa your son when Musa alayhis salam said slaughter a cow. They began to make a mockery of that they said to

00:05:42--> 00:06:24

Musa alayhis salaam tacky Dona Hua This is why we also find in the same Jews, Allah subhanho wa Taala addressing you and I and the Sahaba of the Allah who I knew him, he says Allah Jalla wa Ala Turi Duna and Tess Alou Rasulullah come commands to Isla musalman Kabul, do you want to do you intend to question your messenger the way Bonita saw your question their messenger like if you want to ask a question most certainly you're able to ask a question but do not question your messenger do not question Russell was so long why you sell them when the profit at some tells you something you must believe in Him with your full heart and with a full conviction and then Allah, Allah subhanho

00:06:24--> 00:07:05

wa Taala also tells us about bunnies saw in that how they were a very arrogant to Musa yourself how they were unfaithful to Allah subhanho wa Taala despite the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala saved them from fit on and so forth. So when you look at all this, Allah is saying, they you OMA of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you are a prestigious nation. They were a prestigious nation, and because they did not uphold their responsibility, ALLAH SubhanA what I took away that honor, and that shot off from them and Allah has given to us but you owe Mohammed Omar Mohamed salah, if you do not uphold your covenant, Allah will take it away from you. And then Allah subhanho

00:07:05--> 00:07:48

wa Taala tells us Do you want the example of a person who fully submitted to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is where Allah subhana wa Taala brings in the stories of Ibraheem Alehissalaam that this is a man that you should follow. This is a man that you should emulate. And subhanAllah we see from the stories that Ibrahim, how he had fully immersed himself in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa taala. So hence, now when Allah subhanho wa Taala says color, now we understand what color is. And let me explain this also a little more. You know, when you take a cloth, Imagine taking a cloth to the to the person in over here, you don't see this often in America, but overseas like you know, where I'd

00:07:48--> 00:08:27

like you know, the country where my parents come from Pakistan, you often you go there to the side of the road, there are people who are dying close all the time, because they're always making clothes. So imagine taking a piece of cloth and you're taking into the person you're telling him I want you to dye this piece of cloth. The first thing that they may say to you is that this cloth is not a legible to be dyed nurse and this cloth is not illegible to be dyed. And your honor. My what they say is that imagine when we talk about us, dyeing ourselves in the color of Allah, in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala some of us are such that we are not even able to dye ourselves

00:08:27--> 00:09:12

in the color of Allah. Why? Because we have so many flaws in within ourselves. So the Allah they say that when we want to be dyed in the color of Allah, we have to leave behind our past, we have to change ourselves in order to be dyed in the color of Allah subhanho wa taala. And this is why we find from these stories of pseudo background. And then the next thing is that even when you when that cloth is put into that dye and into that color, and it comes in contact with the chemicals of that die because the dye comes into existence, through chemicals and so forth. And so that cloth has to be strong enough, the wall is going to die, it does not rip and so forth. Likewise, a believer

00:09:12--> 00:09:51

when they are fully died in the color of Allah, when they're fully into obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala challenges will come just like this cloth is going through that die. Likewise, you and I are gonna be going back and forth. We're gonna have some good times, we're gonna have some bad times. But what we learned from this is we always remain steadfast upon the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala just like we find, again from the stories of Ibrahim alayhis salam, just like we find the stories of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and in the same surah in the same Jews, Allah talks about the how he left his family, how he left his family in the desert, and then he made dua to Allah subhanho wa

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

taala. And then finally, when we talk about a dye, when you put clothes into the dye, then the dye gets into every single thread

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

And every single part of that fabric likewise a believer when we die ourselves in the color of Allah, then dean has to come to into our lives completely. And this is why beautifully in the same Jews, ALLAH SubhanA wa talks about Bonita saw it he says do not become like them that what did they do? A taught me not to be bothered Kitab whatever you want to be about, they follow some of the Quran they follow some of their Sharia law and they neglect it is not like a buffet table. I've given this example before our deen is not like you choose and you pick and choose whatever you like, and this is our deen know, our deen is what has been revealed to us by Allah subhanho wa Taala and

00:10:39--> 00:11:25

taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is why in the same first Jews, Allah says yeah, a Johan Lavina Manu oh you people who believe or the Hulu facility Kapha and to enter the Dean completely, just like that die gets into every single thread of that cloth. Likewise, Dean needs to get into every single aspect of our life, whether it's our family matters, whether it's our about that, whether it is how we deal with others, whether it's our social matters, whether it's our iba that Dean has to come into every single part of our life and hence, this is why it is called civil. Allah, the color of Allah subhanho wa Taala and finally, we find at the very end of

00:11:25--> 00:12:10

the first Jewish Allah subhanho wa Taala he says about Ibrahim on Instagram, what Abraham it is time he say he says a salam to nearby Allah mean I submit my life to Allah subhanho wa Taala and hence that's exactly what a Muslim is. When we put ourselves in the color of Allah, we are submitting our entire life or my life my wishes my desires are subjected to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala so I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala the through this month of Ramadan May Allah subhana wa Taala put us in the colours of Allah subhanho wa Taala he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us the trophy to bring Deen into our life completely. And once again, it's a journey of a lifetime with Allah it's

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

not the journey of only one Ramadan is the journey of a lifetime. We all know our own weaknesses. We're not here to judge others. We're not here to point fingers at others. I'm here to point fingers at myself, I know my weakness, I know how bad I am and every single Ramadan, we use our Ramadan to make slight adjustments in our life to make those slight improvements in our life and every year Inshallah, if that is our attitude, inshallah. In a few years, we'll see a major and a drastic change in our life. But if we go through the motions of Ramadan, and there is no heart and there is no spirit in Ramadan, then what's going to happen is we will go through the motions, we will come

00:12:52--> 00:13:18

out of this fasting probably lost a few pounds here and there and then we gain nothing out of it spiritually. So this is why this month is all about spirituality. I asked Allah subhana wa to give us till fifth May Allah subhanho wa Taala who is still fit to connect with the Quran, the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala I mean, you know, but I mean, does that Kabbalah had a salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Sure, hold on now on the
