sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or Shalom wanting to have what

00:01:26--> 00:02:12

are called the art in Bala Wakulla Torah Infinera my bad researcher brothers and sisters when the last drama of Ramadan comes around. Many of us believe that Ramadan is over. This is the last Juma of Ramadan. Now let's prepare for Eid. But let us not be in that understanding because we still have two more nights where we can seek the night of later Nakada there are two more nights where we can achieve more than we can achieve in a three years. There are still at least two more nights, two more on nights where we should stand for Allah subhanho wa Taala and read an abundance of Quran and make immense amount of is too far to Allah subhanho wa Taala just right now outside some of those

00:02:12--> 00:02:51

came to me and they start saying even bother to me. And I'm thinking to myself, they're either still next week. And just because the Joomla is over now you're starting to see you're even brought up to me. But this is a this is a mindset that we are in the now Ramadan is over. But that is wrong. Ramadan is not actually over yet. And so even though we do have three, four days left, depending on whether it is on Tuesday or Wednesday, but let's continue to push ourselves. Let us not finish over here and let's not drop here, because this is like a marathon and we have to reach that finishing line. And if you have ever run a marathon, that as you approach the last mile of that marathon, it

00:02:51--> 00:03:18

gets difficult, then when there's three quarters of a mile left there is even more difficult. When there's half a mile left it gets more difficult and when there's a quarter of a mile is the most difficult. We are right now in the last we are approaching the last quarter mile of the marathon. So let us not stop here and give up and say let's prepare for Eve but let's push ourselves to the last day so that we can attain the maximum benefit of Ramadan.

00:03:21--> 00:03:25

Brother and Sisters just like Ramadan is going by very quickly, very swiftly.

00:03:26--> 00:04:02

Our life is no different. Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran, he talks about the sunset he talks about the the rotation of the Sun in the moon and their alma they say that if you look at the rotation of the sun, the moon just like they move around very quickly so does the life of a human being. Today we look at Ramadan that we began Ramadan and we were looking at Ramadan in a very you know we were looking at Ramadan, that we have an entire month left. And now we are at a point that we only have three four days left or four or five days left.

00:04:04--> 00:04:47

Life is going by like this is going by very quickly. And the question is that what preparations have we made for the hereafter? Every time Ramadan comes we hear the same ayat of the Quran. We hear the same a hadith Rasul Allah so Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and every single theme gives their own approach to how they give their own approach and their own idea that how you should approach them avant, you always hear about Ramadan and goals Ramadan gameplan Ramadan plans, but the question is that all these things can be delivered to us and all these messages can be conveyed to us. But if we're the ones who are not changing our lives, then the Quran should not be blamed. It is not Allah

00:04:47--> 00:04:57

subhanaw taala who should be blamed. It's not that a hottie that should be blamed for not motivating us, but it's ourselves that we should be blaming ourselves that we have not motivated ourselves enough.

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

What have you

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

achievement in Milan, look at yourselves. Don't look at anyone else. Look at yourselves and ask yourself, how much have you changed?

00:05:11--> 00:05:54

The true answer? Or the real answer will come up on the day of read and after the day read. Because right now, this is just a training taking place. Just like people when just like when a person wants to become a police officer, they go to the Training Academy. And they go through this training and they go through this rigorous program, so that when they're actually in the field, they know exactly what to do. When they're going and they're learning how to handcuff someone. They do that and they know that this is not a real life situation. But when they go out in the real field, and they have to handcuff someone, or they have to use their skills, that is when the real test comes. That is why

00:05:54--> 00:06:34

when a police officer, he succeeds in the outside world, he gets a badge he gets he gets he is honored by the chief of police. Why? Because whatever training that you went through you were able to demonstrate those things outside in the real life. So we'll move on the time that we are going through Ramadan all this Quran you think is easy, you think is difficult to read Quran and Ramadan? Absolutely not. Everyone is reading Quran around you. So it becomes easy to read Quran everyone's praying to Yama lane so even if you're sitting in the back you feel guilty that I need to engage with pm lane so you coming in you engage with the I'm Elaine you think is difficult to fasten

00:06:34--> 00:07:14

Ramadan Absolutely not. I'm not talking about the heat and and Texas heat I'm just talking about in general because everyone is fasting so when there's an atmosphere that everyone is fasting for you because for you fasting is easy for you Quran is easy for you Korea, Malaysia is easy for you because easy for you is that far as easy. But let's see after Ramadan when there is no one fasting are you so fasting when no one's reading Quran? Are you still reading Quran? When no one's waiting for pm or late at night I used to wake up at 4pm Monday. When people when people have forgotten about Allah subhana wa Donna? Do you still remember Allah subhanaw taala Anna when people have left

00:07:14--> 00:07:54

the kind of Allah so making vicar to Allah subhanaw taala Do you continuously remember Allah subhanaw taala when people have stopped making instant fire to Allah subhanaw taala or use Are you still making stuff out to Allah? subhanaw taala that's the question. And if the answer is yes, then even after Ramadan, I continuously come to the masjid because I'll tell you from now, the day that announced the day that Eid is announced that tomorrow's Eve you will see that in Saudi Arabia we only go back to three four rows. Right now in Saudi Arabia is packed, the budget is full there's no place to walk. But as soon as the day of Eid is announced,

00:07:55--> 00:08:13

then then the congregation becomes shorter. People start coming less to the masjid that what difference has Ramadan made in your life then was Ramadan just about staying hungry and thirsty? No Ramadan is changing ourselves it's not Ramadan is not a break from coming in Haram

00:08:14--> 00:08:26

because this is what happens in many of our Muslim communities is that as soon as it is announced the second thing that happens is there's so many parties taking place Shaundra parties on what what that means but

00:08:27--> 00:08:51

but all these parties are taking place and we go back to commit the same haram intermingling and you know people committing haram so what was Ramadan then for you then was Ramadan just a break so that you don't come in haram for 30 days? And you go back to what exactly you were doing? No, if that is what our understanding of Ramadan is, we have totally misunderstanding what Ramadan is all about.

00:08:52--> 00:08:59

So but rather what needs to happen is that even after it is announced, that day, we will come from Southern Asia.

00:09:00--> 00:09:41

The next morning, we are now working for Sahara, but we will make it a point to wake up for southern Fajr and we will come for southern Fajr because Ramadan is about changing ourselves. If there is no change, then we have blown this chance has been given to us by Allah subhanho wa Taala so that's the question that we need to ask ourselves, are we changing or not? Year after year Ramadan comes around and we're the same person. So once again, Allah Subhana Allah is giving us an opportunity now when opportunity, multiple opportunities and yet we continue to blow each opportunity. We waste every single opportunity. Now you think about this, when you Simon for Allah subhanaw taala when we stand

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

in for Allah subhanho wa Taala and the day of judgment, and Allah subhanaw taala says that I give you so many opportunities and yet you blew every single opportunity. Then who do we have to blame? Should we say that Allah subhanaw taala is not Merciful? Allah Subhana Allah is merciful. That's why He gave us the month Ramadan to change ourselves.

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

So this is one of the most important things to keep in mind is that Ramadan is going by swiftly and we all know this, but we have to still make up the time that we still have left. Ramadan has not gone yet. Majority of Ramadan is gone, but still we have few days of make that make, make, you know, create, you know focus in these last few days. And not only that, but let's try to understand the what is Ramadan all about? It's about bringing a change within ourselves to become a better person. Are we human beings? Yes, we are. Do we have faults? Yes, we do. Do we have weaknesses? Yes, we do. No one is perfect. There is no one who was perfect. But yet every year you build upon that every

00:10:37--> 00:10:52

year you build upon that. The next thing I want to mention as we are approaching the end days of Ramadan is the concept of his diploma. As the hubby came to us wa sallahu wa A man came to the Prophet sallallahu ala he was telling me he says the Arasu Allah tell me something.

00:10:54--> 00:11:07

Tell me something in Islam, that I will not ask anyone else or I will not ask you about again. Give me something very comprehensive that I can apply in my life. And I will not have any questions after this.

00:11:08--> 00:11:50

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, I'm going to be learning from Muslim that say you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and then you remain consistent upon that. You remain consistent upon that. Why did the Prophet some just say say you believe in Allah and then you remain consistent upon that? Because when you say I believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala it doesn't mean you know one is by saying that I verbally I verbally say that I or verbally declare that I believe in Allah subhanaw taala. But when a person says money to Biller, to biller means that I believe that have Iman Allah subhanaw taala and according to another Hadith of a sorcerer Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he says Eman

00:11:50--> 00:12:33

OMA what god awful upon Eman is that which is in the heart. So when the Prophet Solomon tells us man that you say I believe in Allah, I have Iman Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling this man that verbally and by your actions you have declared that you believe in Allah subhanho wa taala. And then he says, Then you remain consistent upon that. You have to remain consistent upon that, in anything in life, anything in life, if you want to see the results for anything in life, consistency is required. It doesn't matter how much you find it boring. It doesn't matter how much you're fed up of it, but you have to be consistent. People who are pursuing

00:12:33--> 00:13:15

education, people who are pursuing degrees, they get sick after a time they get fed up of whatever they're studying. After a while, but guess what they have to keep on going at it. You have to remain consistent. The doctor gives you a prescription and says that you have to take this for the next two weeks. What is he telling you you have to be consistent. You have to be consistent. When you look at anything in life, you even look at sports. The youth we relate to this example. You look at sports, they always tell you training, camp training, camp training, Camp consistency, consistency, consistency, why? Because consistency brings about results. For person does it only for a while, and

00:13:15--> 00:13:50

then he leaves it you will never see results. You will never see results. That's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he tells us about consistency. He says that not the Quran, Mithra Fudan and Kenny accumulate for Tanaka pm will lead you not become like that person who stands up and then he does not stand up. Rather the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is telling us that there is one man he's giving us an example. Imagine there is a man who performs a hammer lane. And then he leaves his pm later. The problem is I'm saying that do not become like this person. Rather do your piano Lane every single day. The protocol itself is not telling us that you have to precise with the buckler in

00:13:50--> 00:14:34

your lane. He says even if you set up every single night, and you mean even sort of a class and sootel Kota in European Malay at least do that every single day but be consistent upon what you're doing. The problem is or somebody's not telling us to go and give $100 and 100 bucks every single day. But he's telling us to at least give me give $1 even maybe $1 But do that every single day. Do not leave out a single day, remain consistent upon it. A you will realize though a day will come that that $1 will turn into two and then five and 10 and you have this habit of giving for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala if we are not in the habit of coming to the budget every single day.

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

You remember this is a dose of spirituality when we come to a budget every single day. This is our necessary dose of spirituality on its own daily basis when Ramadan is finished. If we are not in the habit of coming to a budget every single day, then at least are off with one time during the day. Just come once. But do not let days go by and you're not coming to the masjid. But come to lunch every single day. If you if you cannot come back

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

anytime today and you feel like the right now I have to start from one time, let it be one time then

00:15:06--> 00:15:49

let it be one time Let anyone say whatever they want to say but start with one time, but be consistent with one time. And you will see that because of the consistency you will increase in what you're doing. This is why Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran, he says he just didn't he whenever he talked about Iman, when he whenever he talked about our commitment to Allah subhanho wa taala. He established the concept of is the karma. He associated the idea of, of declaring our faith with the concept of St. Palma Allah subhanaw taala says in the lady in apologia buena Allah, those who say that my Rob is Allah subhanho wa Taala when I say that my Rob is Allah subhanho wa Taala that means

00:15:49--> 00:16:09

that everything else becomes irrelevant before Allah subhanho wa Taala it doesn't mean that everything is actually irrelevant. No, there are a lot of things in life that are relevant, but when it comes to the matters of Allah subhanaw taala everything takes a backseat and what Allah subhanaw taala has told us to do, that takes precedence that always comes in the front.

00:16:10--> 00:16:54

So Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran in Alladhina Paulo Laguna Allah Verily those people who say that my job, or our job is ALLAH SubhanA wa taala. The Songwriter No, then he says to Mr. Como, then they have as they come upon that that they are consistent with that same of the without saying, they are consistent when it comes to their commitment to Allah subhanahu wata Allah. Allah then says, tetanus is no other human Monica. When these people they leave from the dunya Allah says that unnecessarily human Malayaka the angels they descend upon this person and what did they say that this person, The Hafele that today from today, there is no more grief while at the zoo and do not

00:16:54--> 00:17:34

fear anything? Well, I will appreciate Ruben Jannetty Lottie quantum to adorn and receive the glad tidings of Jana that has been promised to you. Now we may think that this is a fairy tale, but this is just a chronic idea. Yeah, the Sahara the ultra unknown, they will probably see angels during their lifetime but today we are we are going to see angels I mean this is the Quran is for the Sahaba of the Allah Tala animal. That is what our mentality is. But I'll tell you, there was a friend of my father's there was a friend of my father, during his time during his life he was, it was during the end part of his life. He's sitting in the hospital, a man who continuously came to

00:17:34--> 00:18:14

the masjid a man who supported others, a man who brought a smile to those who were less fortunate. A man who cared about others, a man who will recite the Quran, a man who live the spirit of Ramadan when he was even Ramadan Wallah, he this man, this, this friend of my father, when he when he was passing away, and he's in the hospital, and I didn't say that much and he's in the hospital. He's telling his family members that now you leave. This is not a fairy. I'm not making this up. I'm telling you, honestly, I'm standing on the men but I will not make this up. He tells his family members I want you to leave, I can see the angels coming into my room.

00:18:16--> 00:18:40

This is not a fairy tale, my brother and sisters don't think that this is only for the Sahaba Rhodiola to run home. If we made a commitment to Allah subhanaw taala. And then we are true to our word, we are consistent, we have steadfastness. And we have is the karma in our life. And this is the age this is our nature through our entire life. I guarantee you, Allah guarantees you that you will see angels at the time of your death.

00:18:42--> 00:19:11

And this is what this man said. He said remove the angels are coming in open the windows, the angels are coming in, I can see them coming in. This is how this man left from this dunya do you and I want that kind of ending? Absolutely. We all want that type of ending but we don't want to work for that type of ending. That's the problem. We want to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala for a month in the month of Ramadan. And then we want to forget about Allah subhanho wa Taala that's not the recipe of success. That's the recipe of failure and destruction.

00:19:12--> 00:19:20

That four month for a one month you worship Allah subhana wa Tada and then we forget about Allah subhana wa Tada. So this is why it's the karma is so important.

00:19:22--> 00:19:59

And there are a few things that you can do to help yourself after Ramadan. First of all, is create realistic goals. Don't Don't say that for the next one year I want to become too much every single day. Create goals for the next at least I'm going to start off with two weeks. If I'm not in the habit of coming to the masjid. I'm going to start off with simple goals. Realistic goals. Two weeks, two weeks turns into four weeks and you continue to build upon be number two be around those people who will remind you of Allah subhanho wa Taala be around those people be around those people who will bring you to the masjid. This is a problem, especially for amongst the youth

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

Then if there is a youth who if there's another friend of yours who is trying to bring you to the masjid automatically you label that person as a religious person. Or are you the Imam now now you're bringing us to the masjid. He's your friend. He's trying to bring you to the masjid. He's trying to prepare for you. He's trying to help you for your IRA. Take his advice. Take her advice, and come to the masjid. If they're trying to stop you from committing haram. Then take their advice. Be around those people who will remind you Allah subhanaw taala Do not be around those people. Listen to me very carefully. I don't care how much this brother or sister might be your friend. But if this

00:20:41--> 00:21:19

person encourages you to do haram, and whenever you do something right, he discourages you, that is not a good friend for you. Stay away from that kind of person. He is not a good friend for you. He's going to drag you to the fire to handle him he's going to drag you with himself. He's taking you away from Allah subhanho wa taala. So number two is stay in the company of those people who will remind you Allah subhanaw taala number three be in the environment, like the environment of a masjid where you hear continuously, all Allah and Allah rasool Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam for a lawyer calls Allahu alayhi wa sallam. So I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that we can keep these things in

00:21:19--> 00:21:54

mind. I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that even after Ramadan is over we continuously live the spirit of Ramadan even after Ramadan is over. I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that even after Ramadan we are continuously coming to the masjid. We are continuously reading Quran we're continuously fasting on the days which are prescribed to us lotsa Allahu alayhi wa sallam such as Mondays and Thursdays and the young beeld and the other days during the year I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that he gives us the ability to act upon what has been said in a hurt Baraka Allahu Allah Now when it comes to I know them what I find out ye accumulator with a good Hakeem stuff Lulu Holly welcome what is said in

00:21:54--> 00:21:56

Muslim festival in the hula hula Rahim

00:22:03--> 00:22:16

Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Anna who don't want to start in who want to start fiddling with all the villa humans and visit me you had the Laflamme medulla I mean you'll do fella had yella wants to Allah, Allah wa they will actually wanted to do I know Muhammad and I'll do what I sue my dad

00:22:17--> 00:22:39

for the call of automatico to Allah, Allah Allah mochila for Quan Hamid Bada was in ministry on rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim in the law woman at the southern island lobby yeah you're letting me know Salo Allah He was telling me the steamer alongside the Allah Muhammad Allah Allah Muhammad, Allah Tala Ibrahim wala Ali Ibrahim and the Camino mochila barik ala Muhammad wa ala Ali Muhammad Ali Ibrahim Ali Ibrahim and Camila Majid, my bad

00:22:41--> 00:23:20

but brothers sisters, I've said this before one of my other foot buzz that while we are focusing on ourselves, let us not forget about our family members. Many times the adults are so consistent about coming to the masjid standing the first row, second row, but they forget about their children. They have no idea where their children are. Remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala and so today in South Africa, we we will recite an IRA, where Allah subhanaw taala says yeah, you have the deen Manu Gu and Fusa como Alikum Nara, protect yourself and your family members from the fire Jahannam you are responsibility of course you have to worry about your own your own Iman, your family members are

00:23:20--> 00:23:55

also your responsibility. They go this goes to the parents, just don't let your children go and let them do whatever they want to do know engage them with the emulator. Keep them close to you while you are reciting Quran because once again parents are very particular about them coming close to Allah subhanaw taala but they are absolutely oblivious of what their children are doing. Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, even when he told the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he's not just told the Prophet alayhi salam that you pray Salat, he says what Elijah be solid that even command your family members to perform salad and then he says what started Alia be consistent when

00:23:55--> 00:24:09

it comes to Salaat be consistent when it comes to Salah. So that's why it's very important that in these last few days, Ramadan is not over yet tried to engage your family and whatever we are doing and inshallah we will see the benefits of Ramadan in this dunya and akhira inshallah

00:24:10--> 00:24:42
