The Islam-led movement is a critical aspect of Islam's success, as not breaking promises and dedication to the goal is key. The success of Islam is demonstrated through the success of Islam-led behavior, such as honoring promises, staying true to Islam, and not giving up on behavior. The movement is also critical, as it is necessary to not abandon a relationship with the Prophet sallam and finding one's own success. The segment ends with a mention of a new series starting next week.

Salam aleykum Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh Mr. Nahum I know 100 A little bit Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi aji marine was sentiment esteem and cathedral cathedral about restructured brothers and sisters I hope you all are doing well. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us May Allah keep our family safe. And now we are here after the month of Ramadan I ask Allah subhana wa Taala that may Allah accept our Donavon Amina but Allah mean May Allah subhana wa Tada accept all the km and all the CM and every height and every good that we did in the month of Ramadan, especially our doors that we made in the month of Ramadan May Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:07--> 00:01:52

accept from every single believer, every single Muslim and Muslim around the world me Robert aalameen. So now we are here after the month of Ramadan. Brothers and sisters, when it came to them avant we truly showed Allah subhanho wa Taala that we do have the capacity and the stamina to stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala to dedicate ourselves to Allah subhanho wa Taala to give our time and our efforts and you know to sacrifice our nights and sleep for Allah subhanho wa Taala Ana, especially the last two nights of Ramadan, we were fasting during the day, we were awake at nights were reading the Quran and we were excelling in the last 10 days in Lavon. Brothers and sisters we

00:01:52--> 00:02:39

have truly shown Allah subhanho wa Taala that if we truly have that sincerely in our heart, and we truly want to do something we can and Allah subhanho wa Taala has shown us that when Ramadan finishes, if we feel like that I cannot dedicate myself to Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah has shown us that we do have that ability. Remember Allah, the rub of Ramadan is the same Allah of the Nakada Chawan the cada Elijah and all the other months of the lunar calendar here, brother and sisters when you and I when we came into this dunya we took an oath and we said to Allah subhana wa Taala when we were asked an S to be or become a my not your Lord. And when Allah asked us this

00:02:39--> 00:03:26

question bureaux be calm. That means that we acknowledge the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala is our Rob brothers and sisters Ramadan was not so that that was a time that we connect we connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala but Ramadan was there. So we come close to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we develop Toccoa from fasting so that when Ramadan finishes, we can maintain that Taqwa. This is why even after Ramadan we all know that we fast and we are Recker is recommended and we are encouraged by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam too fast for six days of Chawan why? Because to keep that spirit of Ramadan alive, even after the month of Ramadan, brother and sisters you and I have taken

00:03:26--> 00:04:09

an oath to Allah subhanho wa Taala we have a pledge with Allah subhanho wa Taala a commitment with Allah subhanho wa taala. And I want to bring your attention and draw your attention to a verse in the Quran. That in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Makkah, there was a woman who used to sponge who she used to spin yarn. And whenever she would do that, after she was finished, she finished have you know, of spinning that yarn? Then she would untangle that yarn? And the Quran highlights this and it says wala Taku cavaletti naqada The Muslim embody cool within an Katha the all the hard work that she did. Why was she untangled? Why would she undo all the hard

00:04:09--> 00:04:53

work that she had done? Allah subhanaw is telling us do not become like that. But what's interesting to note, and when we have to pay attention is to the IRB for that. See, if we just look at this idea in itself, we may not understand the implications and the context without looking at the IR what comes before or what comes after this. Look at the IR before Allah subhanho wa Taala he's telling the people of Medina, he says what own food be I had the lie either I had to you made a commitment. You made a promise to Allah subhanaw taala you have to honor that promise. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who was overlooking that promise. Allah is aware of that promise. So when you have

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

made that promise, do not break your promise. We have made a promise to Allah subhanho wa Taala in Ramadan

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

And we're able to rekindle that relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala were able to connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala people who are far from Allah subhanho wa taala, the month of Ramadan was there to reconnect with Allah to come back close to Allah subhanho wa taala. So when we after the month of Ramadan, where we abandon everything, we abandon the fasting, we abandon the PMO lane. If we abandon the Quran, we abandon our Salawat that this is no different than that woman that Allah subhanaw taala highlights in the Quran. This is why brothers and sisters, we have to understand that if we I want to be loved by Allah subhanho wa taala. If I want to just be an ordinary person, then

00:05:46--> 00:06:28

fine in Ramadan, you will rededicate ourselves to Allah after Ramadan, you don't dedicate yourself to Allah. But what makes a person extraordinary? What makes a person special? Ask yourself, are you special in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala Are you dues doing something that is absolutely loved by Allah subhanho wa Taala here's how you can do something that you can become extraordinary during times after Ramadan. See Subhanallah I want to give you some examples from the Quran from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu ala he was sending them that talks about few people that they did something special than the and that is why they became extraordinary. Look at the story of a bucket

00:06:28--> 00:07:09

of the Allah THON for example. I mean, there are so many people in Medina, there's only people in Makkah, there's so many Sahaba but we all know the status of Oba Viola Quran, a man that the Prophet sallallahu some love so much a man that he gave everything he could for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he also holla well we don't know is that in Makkah, especially the time when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is spreading his message. It's a brand new message in the society. People are accepting the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But at that time you had some Muslims that were very strong in their faith. And you were you had some Muslims

00:07:09--> 00:07:46

that were on the fence. So they believed in the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they would come to the Holocaust of the Prophet alayhi salam, but at the same time, sometimes they would have questions, sometimes they may have doubts. So when they saw a mirage took place, you know, the kuffar the Quraysh, they went to some of these people, and they said, You believe in Muhammad, right? And they said, Yeah, we believe in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. You believe in everything that he says? Yes, we do. Do you know that last night he is now claiming that last night he went to install in Mirage, he went from here, all the way to the land, the Holy Land?

00:07:46--> 00:08:29

oxsoralen and from there he went to Allah subhanho wa taala. Do you believe that? There are some books of sia that actually mentioned that there were some people that were on the fence? And because of that, they were like, I don't know. Like, I mean, if he said that, like, you know, could it be true or not? This is why obika was so special, because when they came to obika, Yalta on what made him extraordinary, is that when they they told him obika The whole time, that this is what your friend is saying. This is what your Prophet is saying. He didn't even flinch. He did. I mean, there was no amount of doubt in his heart. And he said that if he is saying it, I 100% agree and I can

00:08:29--> 00:09:10

testify that he is speaking the truth. He was all like some other people. This were made obika of Yola, an extraordinary when you look at Ibrahima Islam, what made him extraordinary compared to all the other prophets. I mean, he is a prophet that till today we refer to him as our forefather Ibrahim Ali Islam. He is the one man that today we mentioned in our salon, every single Salah Allah with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when it comes to sending our peace of blessings upon the Prophet alayhi salam, this is a man that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he visited him, Ibrahim Ali Salam is telling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that convey my

00:09:10--> 00:09:55

Salaams to your own Ma. What made him extraordinary is the fact that he made such sacrifices. Allah subhanho wa Taala told him to leave his family in a place where there is no means of life. And not only that, but what did he make dua to Allah. He says I'm doing this so that they can come closer to you from banally up Musa salata fragile fer Tamiya nurse, that oh Allah through the sacrifice give us ability, that we come closer to you, and we come close to you how through Salaat through prayer, this way brought him out of your son's making dua for and not only that, but after after so many years after being reunited with his family. Allah is putting him up to a challenge that Allah has

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

not challenged any other prophet in this way. The sacrifice your own son

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

And Ibrahim alayhis salam did not even question once. In fact, even when he went to his own son, it was to mentally prepare his son. And his son was so strong in his own Iman. But the point I'm trying to make is that because of what Ibraheem Alehissalaam did, it made him extraordinary And subhanAllah even when you look at it mahadji rune amongst the Sahaba of your time you had the Mahajan and you you had the unsalted and if you stay the Sahaba of the Ultra and home, not all the Sahaba were were equal. You had some Sahaba they had a higher status compared to some of the other Sahaba or the autonome. The Mohammed clearly had a status above the unsolved. Why? Because in the time of the

00:10:42--> 00:11:26

unsavoury you had the Prophet coming into Medina, there's an it's an Islamic state, people are coming into the fold of Islam, but to be a muhajir. To believe in Allah to believe in the Prophet sallallahu it was sitting where you have a very hostile climate in Makkah, it took a lot of mental fortitude and mental strength to become a Muslim at that time. This is what made them extraordinary. Brothers and sisters, it is easy to say that in Ramadan, I worship Allah. But what will make us extraordinary what will make us very special is even after the Lavon when everyone has forgotten about Allah, when everyone has left, I'm left fasting when people are no longer reading the Quran.

00:11:26--> 00:12:09

If I remain connected with Allah, if I remain connected with the Quran, that will make me special. If I am doing everything I can in my capacity and trying in finding every way to come close to Allah, then this is a sign of one's Iman and this is why in a hadith of kotse, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that when a person he does everything in his capacity, and he does differ oil, and he does dinner Wi Fi and he does extra to come close to me. Then I become his hearing, I become his scene, I become his his hands and I become his legs, through which he walks meaning that Allah subhanaw taala will help us and He will guide us and He will help us use these faculties that we

00:12:09--> 00:12:48

have in the correct way. Brothers and sisters, we have to become extraordinary. We have to become special. We have to in the month of Ramadan, we every spell after the mantra move on, we have to make sure that we maintain everything that we're doing after the month of Ramadan. Finally, I will share this with you. In the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions a very beautiful idea. In fact, the Buddha Abasto the Allah anima he says that this idea was revealed because of a bucket of the Alexon because they see the Quraysh they would come and they will say that Allah is our OB and this is actually mentioned in the Quran when Allah says well inside the Talmud Holika smartwatch will

00:12:48--> 00:13:26

have their own Allah if you ask them who created the skies in the earth, they will say Allah created but they were Krishna, they would come and ship with ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala they will say that the angels are the Banat of Allah subhanaw taala, the daughters of Allah subhanho wa Taala not only Billa and Abubaker of the alotta on the other hand, he will say, I believe in Allah, and I believe in the Oneness of Allah subhanho wa taala. And I believe in no other thing that you can shake with. I don't believe in any of them. And I believe in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I'm going to stick to this. And this is why even Ibis says that this idea was revealed in men Lavina

00:13:26--> 00:14:09

Callooh, Rob Boone, Allah thermos Docomo, tetanus is no other human melodica. Think about this. If I am steadfast, just like in Oman, I was doing everything. African mobile, of course, there will be a dip, it is natural that there will be a dip. But I'm still trying to maintain the spirit of Ramadan in my own personal life. And that is called stick karma. Allah says that at the time of this person's death, that the angels will descend upon this person, and they will give him this this this relief that you have nothing to worry about the past. The past is the past and you have nothing to worry about the future. Allah to Hafele wala tassa No, no grief. There is no there is nothing to

00:14:09--> 00:14:50

worry about for the future. What Abby shootable Jana, and we give you the glad tidings of Jannah. Brothers and sisters think about this. Is there anything is there any other Armen mentioned the Quran that Allah says that the angels will come down upon this person, there is not. Allah talks about stick Allah, Allah talks about being a you know, having continuity, being steadfast upon the good that we are doing. In fact, ortholite we're not a fan of your turn who says that this idea means that doing everything that Allah subhanaw taala wants us but he says more than that it is sincerity. When a person says for Mr. Camo, it means that they are sincere to Allah subhanho wa

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

Taala or you know the author and he says that this is in reference to the ferocity of that a person who is performing the fraud and they're sticking to their for if that Allah

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

subhanho wa Taala will bring upon them these angels. And not only that the hustle and bustle Rahmatullah Lee is mentioned about him. Every single time he will recite this ayah he will stop and he will make dua for it's the karma. This is why go back to the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a man came to hit the prophet at some INSEAD told me something about Islam that I can do. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said what oil meant to be love first say that you believe in Allah through Mr. Kim, then you stay steadfast upon that. That's exactly what's in this ayah in the medina Kalu Abouna. Allah my Rob is Allah then they are steadfast upon that. And

00:15:39--> 00:16:18

those people who are steadfast in sha Allah, there is Jana for them. Ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that to give us the ability to remain steadfast upon our deen even after Ramadan May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us steadfast upon the Quran upon our of God, may Allah subhanaw taala give us the ability to click to continue all the good that we did in Montreux, in the month of Ramadan, even after the month of Ramadan, I ask Allah subhana wa Taala that in times like these, and times that we live, where there's so much chaos going on, there's so much uncertainty that is going on in the world that we live right now. Ask Allah subhana wa to give us clarity to guide us to give us the

00:16:18--> 00:16:47

ability to do what is right and to stay away from what is wrong in May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us strong. whatever comes our way will allow us to ask a lesson behind to keep us strong in every single way in every single matter amenable Alameen Insha Allah we will be starting a new series inshallah starting next Monday, and we more details about that new series inshallah will be coming in the next few days. Ask Allah Subhan to give all this ability I mean, it'll be to Allah means is akmola Hey, Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
