It's my first time seeing him like Masha I mean, he's always Mashallah Northern Ireland or and just just full of joy. But, man, you've come a long way from last year school and 3430 with the curtains blowing in the back and, you know,

the fan, we already got a facepalm we didn't even have to wait for an 30 for them to get a facepalm out of chef Abdullah.

00:04:00--> 00:04:10

But his cameras like super high def. So I think the rest of us should probably just, you know, just let him talk the whole time. Right. But hamdulillah blessed to have chef Abdullah duru

00:05:00--> 00:05:06

You're in Canada. And I'm looking forward to hearing all of your insights bit in the nighttime. So welcome to the entire panel

00:05:09--> 00:05:13

located exactly last night, I'm happy to be here

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

and

00:05:16--> 00:05:29

check the brain Health Canada tell us about Canada first property. So do you want to like switch the tune on Canada? Well, like you guys know, we all live in igloos and our money's worthless.

00:05:33--> 00:05:44

Under that, I can't wait inshallah for you guys to be able to visit us hopefully after all this COVID stuff is over. I have to show you around the best hazard food scene in North America is in Toronto, so

00:05:45--> 00:05:51

we have a lot of secrets here that's one of them. I got to get one of those beaver tails What do they call those beaver tail things?

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

Good. That's my cheat day.

00:05:57--> 00:06:05

You got to try to shorten up protein to okay this fella Milan. Alright, so so Milan prep and we're already talking about food.

00:06:07--> 00:06:47

I've heard quite a bit from the from the normal bond prep. So this meant that let's get started that inshallah just to mention one more thing before that Imam Wahid will be coming in later to join us soon inshallah tada he is at a janazah for one of his friend's father's May Allah reward him And may Allah have mercy on the brother that passed away in sha Allah, He said he'll join at some point. So we'll look forward to having him when we can in sha Allah. So Allah Ramadan, like his sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I want us to just sort of start off because each one of you inshallah is going to be connecting a Ramadan experience that would be closest to his sallallahu wasallam. And I think

00:06:47--> 00:07:30

it's important for us to just say that whether it comes to Riba, the realm of worship or the realm of character, the realm of just being, you know, the best servant of Allah subhanho it's out of the best slave of Allah, the best, the most pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam is the supreme standard. And so anytime we become more connected to Allah, we become more beloved to Allah and we become closer in resemblance than to the beloved one of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was not just this example for us to marvel at, but he is a sweater and has Santa Lehman county elder law with Yamanaka, he is in you know the

00:07:30--> 00:08:11

supreme example for those that desire that long for Allah and goodness on the Day of Judgment. And remember Allah subhana wa tada frequently and so the more we remember Allah, the more we worship Allah, the more we seek to refine our character, the more we remove those things that are undesirable from our lives, the backbiting, the the gossip, the waste of time, the closer we become to Allah, because the closer we resemble the most beloved person to Allah subhanho wa Taala, which is our messenger sallallahu wasallam. And I wanted to start off inshallah, and then we'll, we'll start with Allahu taala. With each one of you in sha Allah. We'll start with Sr. sada. I want to

00:08:11--> 00:08:53

start off with something that I noted, you know, a few years ago, that I find very profound that Rama blaan engages all of the articles of email, it engages all the articles of faith and engages your belief in Allah. It engages your belief in the angels. It engages your belief in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the messengers because you are following the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and fasting the way that all of the prophets used to fast it engages Eman, Bill kutub the belief in the books because it is Sharon Quran. It is the month of Quran. And we honor ourselves by the recitation of the Quran,

00:08:54--> 00:09:36

in our lives, particularly in this month, and it is of course, what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the month in which all of the divinely revealed books came down, all of them were revealed in this month of Ramadan. Subhan Allah Tila, the indeed were all revealed in this month of Ramadan and the Quran was revealed Of course, on Nathan covered and this is shuffled on. So it engages the belief in the in the books and particularly, the belief in the book in the ultimate book that it engages our belief in the era in the Hereafter, right? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Southern Hadith could see that Allah has said, all of the children, all of the deeds of

00:09:36--> 00:09:59

the children of Adam are for him except for fasting. Fasting is for me and I reward accordingly, meaning it is a specific deed on the Day of Judgment, a specific reward on the day of judgment because it is such a sincere deed and such a rewardable deed in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then it engages and engages Divine Decree Laila through father is in Ramadan

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

Our decree for the year will be written bidding Allahu taala on the list of others and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for the good of it. And so it engages all of our pillars of faith, all of our articles of faith. And we basically see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, everything that he did outside of Milan that made him the magnificent person that he was at his Salatu was Salam in Ramadan, he just took it to the next level. And so when we compare ourselves to the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, we're striving to be you know, anything of what he was it his salatu salam throughout the year, but in Milan, you know, he just took it to the next level. And so I think

00:10:43--> 00:11:04

the lesson that we learn, is proportionality. Right? If the Prophet slicin I'm increased in this particular deed, which we were already lagging behind, in, then we should increase in that deed, right. And the things that were the features of the Ramadan of the Prophet slice of them should be the features of our Ramadan, as well, except for one thing, and it's very interesting.

00:11:05--> 00:11:45

And that is the abandonment of sin. The prophet SAW Selim was never found the Prophet slice Elam was never one to engage in the mafia and the disobedience to Allah subhana wa Tada. He was never one it histological salaam to, to engage in those deeds that would bring about the displeasure of Allah. And that is actually our starting point that we have to see quotevalet como Seon, Kim ikuti vandalia Dena min publikum landler counter taco and fasting has been prescribed upon you the way it was prescribed on those who came before you so that you may gain tequila so that you may become more pious conscious of Allah and abandon those sins that are a barrier between you and Allah. what's

00:11:45--> 00:12:08

what's just so powerful about that is that what that tells us is that what is preventing us in excelling in those good in those good deeds is in fact the presence of those bad deeds. What is preventing us from taking that next step is our insistence upon that regressive step. And so I just think always and inshallah Tada, I'll then pass it on to sister sada

00:12:09--> 00:12:46

you know about the saying of the mom, hustle and bustle Rahim, Allah when he was asked about why we can't break the AMA lit why we can't pray the night prayer. And he said, Don't disobey him during the day and he will wake you up at night. Don't disobey him during the day and he will wake you up at night. And so the ultimate ingredient the first ingredient, was that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not one to engage in the disobedience of Allah. And therefore he was always oriented to the obedience of Allah. And so when the month of Allah comes, the month of Ramadan comes, then it's just you know, you're kicking into next gear rather than starting the car. And for

00:12:46--> 00:12:56

a lot of us, we're just starting right and so how do we start and inshallah tada with that, I'll go ahead and I'll pass it to sister SATA bidding in italics to get us started.

00:12:57--> 00:13:37

Just like well, no higher than I was when I was listening to the last one and he was happy when mother and her bad jackal, lock it down for the all star lineup here, Michelle. Now I'm excited to prep for my personal Ramadan and listening to everybody's tips in sha Allah. So the one that I wanted to focus on for today is, you know, I think when we're talking about transitioning into Ramadan, a lot of us naturally think about the increase in external acts of worship, which are very, very, very important. But the one that I wanted to focus on today is more of an internal act of worship. And that's important as well.

00:13:38--> 00:13:55

And so, you know, this particular one is one that can allow for spiritual, mental and emotional growth in sha Allah. So it frees up space in your life for what's important. And it's based on the hadith of little suicide Salaam, where,

00:13:56--> 00:14:39

in sitting in the masjid, a man before before he walks into the masjid little Salaam says that a man from the dwellers of Paradise will walk in now. And then Amanda walked in, and this happened three times. And so one of the companions of the rituals iclm Abdullah, if the armed, you know, was very curious, there's three times that are slms, saying that this person is a dweller of Paradise, what does he do that is so unique, that makes him from amongst those who has such a high status in the eyes of Allah patata. And so he decided, you know, he requested to spend three, three nights with this man and the man accepted and he goes to his home. And what really stood out to him was that

00:14:39--> 00:15:00

nothing stood out to him, right, that that the external acts of worship were not, you know, he was doing all of the things that he's supposed to do in terms of the law in terms of things like that, but there wasn't something that that was really really, you know, like a huge increase in in typical acts of worship. And so you know, he addressed him directly

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

He said, The Russell's are Salaam, you know, mentioned you as a dweller of Paradise three times and each time it was you who walk through those doors, you know what, what is it about you that gave you such a status that led you to deserve such a status. And the man said, you know, what you saw, like my deeds are nothing more than than what you saw. And so Abdullah Nanda walks away, and then he calls him back. And he says, you know, my deeds are nothing more than what you saw. But the only thing that I do that, you know that that might be something special, right? The only thing that I do is that I don't hold a grudge against any Muslim or envy anyone for the bounties that unless my data

00:15:42--> 00:16:27

has granted them, right. This this idea of like has not been right thinking giving people the benefit of the doubt, not holding on to ill intent in one's heart that if somebody has done something that has hurt you that has offended you to not hold on to that and perhaps one of the ways that he did that is through this idea of giving benefit of the doubt of being able to see this from a from a light a positive light of positive intent. And you know, another handy little Caesar salad that stood out to me about this, this concept is one that also Salim is, is describing the Kava, so Panama, and he was describing the Kava and you know, such a beautiful ways is, you know, how pure is

00:16:27--> 00:17:11

your fragrance, how great you are, how incredible is your sanctity and things like that. And then in the end, he says that the sanctity of the believer is greater to Allah than your sanctity. And then he ends the heavies by saying, to assume nothing but good of the believer. Right in comparison to the Kava. So it tells you the significance of you know, how much those sorts Isola was encouraging us to do this Subhan Allah. And so it's something that, you know, some of the questions that come to my mind when I'm thinking about this for this upcoming Ramadan, right, is, what would you be able to focus on, if you weren't holding on to that grudge. If you weren't struggling with those negative

00:17:11--> 00:17:56

thoughts about that person who said something that bothered you the other day, if you weren't so busy searching for possible ways that people might be intending to hurt you? Right, if you could let go of that, imagine how much space in your heart and in your, in your mind and in your time is freed up for other things, right SubhanAllah. And there are so seldom, you know, talked about this, you know, my intent in sharing this is that it truly makes things better between people. But it truly is so much better for you. Right husband is for you. It's not for that other person, it's for you, but in reconciling things, between you and that other person that is for you, as well. But also Salim

00:17:56--> 00:18:04

said to his companions that you know, shall I not tell you, you know, shall I tell you about something that's better in degree than extra fasting prayer and charity?

00:18:06--> 00:18:46

Extra fasting prayer charity, what could be better than those things? Right. And there's also Salim said, reconciliation between people making things right between people, and having positive intentions that you attribute toward other people, helps to make things right between you one of the rewards of of jedna Subhan Allah, one of the rewards that we insha Allah, Allah subhanaw taala, through His mercy grants has done now one of the rewards of that is that unless pass Allah will remove what is in our chests in terms of resentment toward other people. That's a reward of Jenna. Right? So what if we could, you know, to some extent gain that for ourselves, this animal done?

00:18:47--> 00:19:29

Right? And so, you know, some of the things to ask yourself about this, right is, you know, somebody has done something, is there another way that I could possibly be interpreting this? What might be going on in that person's life that led to that moment that hurt me? Right? Is it possible that I've been hurt by other people and so because of that I'm searching for possible harm in in this particular situation, is any good going to come from me attributing negative or ill intent from this person? And what could I do instead, if I let that go, and I moved forward from that. And so I asked the last half hour inshallah to increase us and the ability to give people the benefit of the doubt,

00:19:29--> 00:19:39

to increase us and the ability to attribute positive intent to them and to allow that to be a purification for us this Ramadan and after Ramadan, as well as in Shama.

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

Baraka, la Viki, and you know, some Hello right away by the way, what came to my mind is the shotgun the shadowbanned regimen more than anything else is clearing your heart making space for Allah. And I think that is something just the connection between Shannon and should

00:20:00--> 00:20:13

Right. I talked about this a few weeks ago. It was something one of my teachers had shared with me a long time ago and I never forgot it the connection between China and Schick which is malice and choke, which is polytheism to associate another god.

00:20:15--> 00:20:20

And he said, the sheer total Tito Dean was Shana tally with Dean

00:20:21--> 00:20:34

sherek invalidates faith. And Shana hatred, shaves it, as a prophet. I'm sad, because it's born out of envy and things of that sort. And I think what you just mentioned is very profound your opportunity costs, you know,

00:20:37--> 00:20:51

the greatest thing you're missing out on is not you know, your your peace of mind is not, you know, I'm not able to enjoy this time with my family, I'm not able to the greatest thing you're missing out on is you're not able to really enjoy your worship, because you're so immersed in your hatred, and

00:20:53--> 00:21:15

you know, and what could even be your righteous anger sometimes about something that was done towards you and relinquishing that grudge is really removing a poison from the hearts panela. And one other thing, personal love and Allah and personal love and the people has no one in Allah is actually directly connected to that, because you're hosting along with the people

00:21:16--> 00:21:49

includes a natural element of you know, if there is something I'm missing, or if they are indeed, as you know, if they are indeed, as bad as some say they are that some, there's a voice inside of me telling them that bad or that this was done, or this was the intent than my personal one and Allah that Allah is not going to let the edge of that go to waste, Allah won't let the reward of that go to waste. And so there's a connection in the personal one and a lot of the good expectation of Allah, and the good assumptions that you have of people that, you know, the biggest fear of having good assumption and people is what they'll take advantage of that. But if you have an oven and

00:21:49--> 00:21:59

Allah, they can't take advantage of that, because you'll take advantage of it, because you'll get the reward from Allah subhana wa tada with anything that happens there. So does that come off here for that beautiful reflection?

00:22:00--> 00:22:35

Well, yeah, come on. No, you know, as you said, that I'm sorry, just to add one thing that came to mind, from like a brain perspective, the connection between like hundreds of people and hasn't done a Ls prodata if you're scanning your life for ways people might hurt you, you're going to end up scanning your life for ways that you're going to, you know, feel a sense of distrust from LS pantalla as well, right? Like if your brain is in protective mode constantly, that can even affect the ability to trust. And you know, expect the good of Alice Pat data as well. So so that's what came to mind as you were sharing that does everyone love it?

00:22:38--> 00:22:52

That's a beautiful connection, because when you have bad expectations of people, we mentioned that the other is part of our Amen. So you have bad expectations of what's going to come from what Allah ultimately has control in. Right? So that's the beautiful connection within and I like how you mentioned

00:22:53--> 00:23:25

as a part of law, you know, and not having any grudges with people, you know, Subhanallah and that's, that's one thing I remember one of my mentors told me a long time ago. He said, Ramadan is when I send texts out call people, you know, and ask, Is there anything in the hearts you know, saying if there's anything that I've done, there's a possibility of one person, you know, I send a text or I call him before text was, you know, I just call them and see if there's any anything in the heart and if there is and we can, you know, talk it out so Pinilla so that's that's very important and it takes it takes effort you know, and that's what you know Sugarman was saying about

00:23:25--> 00:23:42

the process of selling it was kind of you know, Ramadan kind of edge with the mayor coin as a companion said that he was the best selling best manners. So it takes digging deep within yourself and making that call or sending that text for the sake of Allah said kind of without it's not easy, but it's not supposed to be easy.

00:23:47--> 00:24:04

Santa look nursery rhyme Amish almost no heat. That's not how you be given. How are you? Hello, how are you sir? South Florida. La vertical multi sub, we know you just came from janaza and milazzo did have mercy on the one who passed away

00:24:05--> 00:24:38

and lost pets or reward you for being a part of that. Can you share who he was so we can make dog for him inshallah. So the people yes, he was one of my close friend. He, his mother passed away. He was busted. His mother passed away. He was maybe like, in seventh grade or eighth grade. So this person took care of him all his life. He was his uncle, his mom's brother and he got diagnosed with cancer a few months ago, and his health started deteriorating in the last week or so. And so they were expecting it, but it happened very quickly. And he passed away Friday, early morning between the hunters and thunderous Allah.

00:24:40--> 00:24:53

And so today was the janazah. And, you know, it's just, it's I don't know how to put in words, but it's the first janazah and art institution since my brother passed away six months and four days ago, so it was kind of

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

Yeah, I mean, I'm on here. So inshallah we'll see if it works, but it was kind of difficult because it's the first time we bought a

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

body to our since our building since that time, so I just brought memories of that.

00:25:05--> 00:25:41

But underlying login Jennifer Dawson was a sick man. And I always my when we when we put my brother in his grave. My older brother said like he was the youngest among us. And now he's the oldest because he's 33 years old now. So this all these mean sometimes we're all 65, seven years old who will not who would want to be young again, who wouldn't want you know, full hair on their head again, who would want to be and the moment you pass away and Samaniego agenda you're 33 years old, the identity so i mean you know these things started coming but Sharla he's an easy he's in a better place but I'm not sure if we are but inshallah we'll be fine.

00:25:43--> 00:25:54

Okay, my long lost planet, Allah have mercy on him and have mercy on your brother. Eliza, allow them to be from the people Jenna through those and allow us to be joined with them a lot. I mean,

00:25:55--> 00:25:56

it's like a mafia.

00:25:58--> 00:26:03

It's hard to sort of transition back multi sub How about you just while we have you in sha Allah?

00:26:05--> 00:26:09

Sure, share your words, your heart is in a good place for the nightowl and you can

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

prep inshallah for us. So sister sada just spoke about the importance of hustle and love and Allah and her son of London, the people as well. And removing from our hearts, scratches, removing from our hearts, things that would prevent us from immersing ourselves in Milan. So would you have anything to sort of build on that? And Charlotte, what's your what's your normal one prep tip for us? All right. So Hong Kong is good, you brought that up, I would, something I was working on last Milan. And I'm so grateful that I was started working on it last Milan. And

00:26:45--> 00:27:12

it helped me out. This is something that really helped me out when my brother passed away. On October 5, one of the things you heard from people was that don't find yourself alone, you know, don't be driving alone in the car. And don't ever see yourself alone in the house. Because that's when it's really going to hit you always be around people. And that is true to a point that definitely it's true. But I found that the most comforting moments was when I was alone.

00:27:13--> 00:27:41

Because nobody really understands what you're going through. Other than Allah subhanaw taala because he put it he puts you through it. So yes, you can speak to this person, when you speak to people around you, it makes a difference. Just getting it off of your shoulder, just speaking, letting just venting, even talking to people on Oh, you don't understand how much difficulty there is this that it just helps just speaking about it. And we understand that it's a factual thing. You don't constantly let the person speak, wants more to speak the better they feel.

00:27:43--> 00:28:24

I feel that in Ramadan there's so many collective about that. things we're doing together all the time. So we eats hold together we pray a lot together and charlo would be in the masjid then we go for we go to work we come back we prepare for if thought together then we Muslims in Asia everyday. Ramadan is a good collective month where everyone's together and it's great. But my tip for this Ramadan to all of us is schedule a time of your day in which you are alone with Allah subhanaw taala. And in that time that you are alone scheduled this to be on your to do list. I mean, there's so many things, people will tell different variations, different weather models, say different

00:28:24--> 00:28:38

things. This is the top 10 things to do on your lawn dog this that all these are amazing, but that but for me personally, and anyone who is going through something similar, like going through difficulties, whatever it is in your life that you're going through

00:28:39--> 00:29:13

the most comforting thing to me of course reading books and learning knowledge and speaking to people is comforting, but the most comforting thing for me and I want to continue in Milan is just speaking to Allah subhanaw taala it's common knowledge that I started this last Ramadan, you know, even though I was really weak at it, but it really helped me out after my brother passed away because you started this habit and you could bank on it after because, you know, you just go right back into it. And then you just cry in front of Allah, you just open up your heart in front of Allah and he understands what you're going through. And so I would say that this idea of you don't you

00:29:13--> 00:29:46

don't need you don't need to learn to us. You don't need to learn certain words. You just need to speak. He's your friend. He understands what you're going through. Just speak to him in whichever manner you're speaking to him and it comes in handy to the person who's speaking to Allah and he says, Oh Allah, you're my slave and I'm your Lord. You know, like he literally switched it up. And Allah forgive him because of that just because it was the way he spoke to Allah. Kabbalah. Allah He says, so long poem but you know something that we can reflect over he says something what we're going through similarly, he says dounia ki methylome say Octavia who

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

can look for Angie Mancha job de bajo surestay baka home, they will do the hemera so good. Just perfectly bifido Marta hamo shipper.

00:30:00--> 00:30:45

yatsuhashi domande makakuha Kook a tortoise jump raho Azad figures who was ultimate then gusano dunya k romka del tsikata Nichols. Yo. He says dunya Kima philosophy Dr. guerra Oh Allah, I'm just tired. I feel like I can't breathe. I've heard this like three, three times in the last week from people. If I feel like I'm suffocating, even though you're in the middle of everybody, you have everyone around you, but the cafe can't breathe. And this sort of thing over here. All I feel like I can't breathe. So Cal looks on Japan catch up, did he put together what is what benefit is there in this crowd in this audience? When you're restless from inside? He said, Oh, Allah, I'm trying to run

00:30:45--> 00:31:18

away from this, you know, not that I have to avoid, of course, the person a problem said, a person who meets people and his patients who have any exercise or she exercises patients on the difficulties they receive is better than the one who's alone. But still, Allah Sing to the problem for you, therefore, after fansub What about the related Tila? You know, when you get done with everything, oh, Prophet of Allah, Please spend some time alone along with me. And the Prophet would yearn for that time where he would be all alone with the Lord Allah, and he would not compromise anything on that time. This is only for him and Allah subhanaw taala. And the people of the past,

00:31:18--> 00:32:01

they were the you know, they were the people that brought the best, most justice and they brought so much greatness to this world. But one thing they never left soft and it brought money, never missed time at night speaking to Allah, Allah. So he says, so good, just perfectly bifido. So Homer, this is crazy line. He says, I'm searching for such silence, in which even speeches would envy. So you have speeches that affect and motivate you, right? You're like, man, I heard that speech. And I, like it motivated me so much. The new season coming up. I'm like, yeah, that really pumped me up. But he's saying, I'm actually looking for such silence, or even speeches with envy, like, Whoa, how

00:32:01--> 00:32:42

did this have such an effect on this person? How long he goes on by seeing different things that you know people understand will do for him, you know, Shazam, or you don't understand it so I can really think about it. And another place he says, oh, Gabi, Ruth, Bader Hoda, Giovanna may know it here on Ko, Gonzales monamy. So once you have this spirit of this Falcon, which is it's roaming around everywhere, it's a public bird. But at the same time, one of the things about this bird is it finds time alone, alone somewhere, if you develop this quality, Kabbalah law says then you can see your destination above the skies, meaning you could see the light beyond the tunnel. You can envision

00:32:42--> 00:33:22

things in a much different light, I found that if we all can work on this quality in any way it's going to be it's going to be very awkward at the beginning, you sitting down all alone, but then you start speaking to Allah as if you could really, really like feel that Allah is listening to you. It's a different feeling. And just, you know, everything's in your heart. Today, we know how to share our problems on social media to people all around us. But we just don't know how to speak to the one who is the solver of our problems. So let's present present our problems in front of him. So he can solve it. And I'll conclude by saying the people of the past they were they just knew how to

00:33:22--> 00:34:00

speak to us Matala. They never really asked Allah for too much, but they just knew how to speak to him. One scholar he used to say in his every single day in his Manasa tea so say, let him call up Tony be the newbie the otol even Nicki Affleck, while in Parliament and Eb Toba de la la palabra Taliban can be so high well in adultery and narla they're on al anon and you have a book, his name level salamander and he used to say, Oh Allah, if you ask me if you present my sins in front of me, then I will present all the pages of Quran Hadith about your forgiveness. So I'll look at my my sins, your forgiveness, they don't even come close to each other. Then we'll look if you present me

00:34:00--> 00:34:18

by saying to me that Oh, where's your Toba? Like, yes, I will forgive you, but where's your tober? Then I will present your generosity to you. So Allah you also said you're generous. Then he says, Oh Allah, if if I know I'm not worthy of gender, but if I ended up in janome, I will tell the people of janome that I love you. Well, I never understood this until when I

00:34:20--> 00:34:56

went through with my brother, where people are looking at you people are not Muslims. atheists are looking at you like okay, this is really gonna break this person. And you look at them in their eyes and say, I love Allah more now. I don't care what happens. Right? And those people cannot believe that our relationship is completely different. So we just say all love about what you put me through a new book. I still love you. This is a conversation. I urge everyone to start developing in this collective month of ours. still find time where you're sitting alone, and you're speaking to Allah subhanaw taala you will find that this will be the powerhouse for your whole day you will not get

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

tired. If you look you look forward to this and then you build upon it for the rest

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

Do I hope I never took more time than a lot of time even though I do all the time.

00:35:09--> 00:35:27

Man, you you really touched our hearts in a way I don't think you can imagine. So males aren't rewarded You made us want to have mercy on the the dear brother that you bury today and your dear beloved brother that you had to endure the pain of bearing six months back. So May those $4 bless you in a second well cared for that beautiful, beautiful reminder.

00:35:32--> 00:35:39

alone, I mean, we know you know, I found it so powerful. The way that you were talking about

00:35:40--> 00:36:19

taking your emotion and making it into a.to help you connect with Allah has data. And I was thinking about know how to use that and, and how on the put on Allah, you know, he's described as saying, I'm so defeated, so help me right, like he takes this emotion. And he turns all those past data and seeks help from the one who can who can help him. And I, you know, in in hearing my like my clients who share their emotions in therapy and that's one of the pieces of therapy that's supposed to be healing, right. So can you imagine the healing that can also come from sharing those emotions with the healer, right, the source of healing so panela and so it's such a beautiful reminder does that

00:36:19--> 00:36:21

come alongside and for sharing that?

00:36:25--> 00:36:29

will go on a phone call after and I'll translate those poems for you. Okay?

00:36:31--> 00:36:34

What wouldn't be it would not be a Mufti of that

00:36:35--> 00:36:39

moment without an acrobat poem and Urdu and

00:36:40--> 00:36:45

yeah, and then making us cry and then making us laugh like that just wouldn't it wouldn't be the same so as

00:36:47--> 00:36:48

well our award you and

00:36:49--> 00:36:52

yeah, I was proud to bless you.

00:36:53--> 00:36:56

And by the way, I'm wearing the vest in the normal bond series. So

00:36:57--> 00:37:05

I mean, you know, people been asking how long it should wear like, it's like a secret they see around I'm like, he's just a want to be you know, like, we

00:37:09--> 00:37:13

this is something the marketing team put them to this, I can tell you that for sure.

00:37:15--> 00:37:34

I'll tell the story. I'll tell the story of the vest. Because you never gifted me with one and you guys never gifted me with one. So I'll have to tell the story. I got it from a random nikka as I was going into record meeting Hamlet's license I said you know what, this looks pretty nice. I'm gonna keep it on so you never got me one because you You obviously don't find me worthy

00:37:36--> 00:37:47

you know of your poetry or of your of your clothes. But hamdulillah someone else gave me one share so we're good. So now I can I can pretend I can come to Mr. And I can done the best I can but

00:37:48--> 00:37:59

we have to get you a turban that goes seven times on your head not six. It has to be seven has to be it has to be big enough. She'd have to like don't do this response. I'm gonna see you in a robotic lawsuit or Milan

00:38:01--> 00:38:09

is doing a space poms in high def right now like super high def. And with that we just you know, we still got a lot of time to go this month. So with

00:38:10--> 00:38:13

Shaykh Abdullah Abdullah Moscow Ron

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

you're on mute chef.

00:38:20--> 00:38:33

Good No, you're good. Yeah. I'm gonna lie But I mean, so a lot of some of my back and I interviewed him while he was remaining my but just to kind of capitalize on what Shake Shack of their members mentioning.

00:38:34--> 00:39:14

Was was was was very beautiful in regards to you know, just reminding me of which will come at the end of Ramadan. But does that mean that it's only confined to the end of Rome along with the last 10 days of Ramadan being at caffeinated tea Caf is to be stationary or devotional worship within a place. Primarily the masjid. I remember one of my Subhanallah one of my best friends that I was sitting with in Medina suppiler he got accepted to Medina, you know, when he was around 1718 comes from a very strong family, Mashallah to Batticaloa. And I remember, he gave me advice, you know, to just go to a when you go to the masjid because I used to go to the huddle and make a ticket. So as

00:39:14--> 00:39:52

soon as we get to the door of the house, I'm like, okay, so I want to try to catch go off somewhere where no one knows you. And there's no distractions. You know, so that was that was huge advice for me because it was normal for him. But it was kind of like, it really touched me when he did that because as soon as he did it, I knew what he meant since he shook my hand and looked at me, we traveled for hours. And I'm like, okay, gotcha, right. So, it was kind of like, never forget, it was immaculate and Pinilla was the last year second birthday mean was given the Holocaust giving the lessons in Mecca and, you know, every time he would speak every couple of you know, minutes,

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

you know, he was coughing and things of that nature are him allowed to, but it was an experience that after that I was hooked. You know, it was really

00:40:00--> 00:40:41

calf was my you know Subhanallah my go to particularly because of that reason of spending time alone with the loss of kind of more data and conversing with him through the slots through reciting the Quran through asking Allah subhana wa Taala and not being distracted at all and I think that is a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful point that he mentioned and guidelines and pointing for us to to really ponder over and just ask ourselves how much alone time on purpose for Allah have we spent? That's what I want to talk about roughly. Not exactly the alone time but what would get us there insha Allah tala. As you know the beautiful Hadith of the Prophet sallahu wa Salaam is actually

00:40:41--> 00:41:26

three and it's easy for us to memorize. You know the Prophet sallallaahu Selim, he said, three the Hadith in Bukhari and some Bukhari Muslim said Monica Mara Medina he managed to seven who fear Allah who met at the moment MB, mon sama Rama, Donna Eamon and we're at 703 Rolla who met at the moment thembi woman farm and a little other e Mannan. yt sabun. A Wolfie Rolla who met at the moment and so there's three things here. And these two, how do you process them the first one, he said, Whoever fasts the month of Ramadan, with firm belief and conviction, and hoping for his reward, then he will his previous or her previous sins will be forgiven. Second, Heidi, who stands the month of Ramadan,

00:41:27--> 00:42:09

with conviction, hoping for his reward, then his or her previous sins will be forgiven. Third hyden whoever stands the night of other Khaleda to other with conviction and hoping for his reward, his or her previous sins will be forgiven. So we see just the first part of the Hadeeth is something that is slightly different, but it's all in the month of Ramadan. So the promise a lie that was cinemas talking about standing in the month of Ramadan, which is prayer, which is some of the scholars mentioned is in another Hadith that the prophet Elijah was sending. He used to desire for the Muslims to stand in prayer and primarily the scholars mentioned this being tunnel we when Abu

00:42:09--> 00:42:47

huraira mentioned this that it was him hoping for the companions to stand but he didn't want to make it obligatory upon them. So as a as an encouragement, he mentioned this how do you man famara Madonna email with whoever was to stand in the month of Ramadan in prayer primarily totally. With full conviction hoping first reward, then he or she will be forgiven, their previous sins will be forgiven. So this is beautiful because when we look at total, we it's something that should, you know, looking at the Jamaat and looking at the congregation, especially this year, for those of us that are able to make it to the masjid or here those that are able to go you will see people that

00:42:47--> 00:43:27

you haven't seen in a while and you will see all of your brothers and sisters and you're all praying together, listening to the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala being recited, and also in fasting this month of Ramadan and standing in the night of God. But I want to touch on primarily the second part of this study because that was the first part. There's three The second part is where he says he man we're at seven and Subhan Allah is beautiful and reading the works that have no fame Josie or him Allah tada when he talks about this concept of a man anti SAP, even though I translated it as conviction on a European platform hamdulillah seems like they put it in a common McAllen head on

00:43:27--> 00:44:10

makaan. You know, we can say conviction and it is that which is it pushes you to do an action of hair to Allah to your Creator. You know, and that's the belief in Allah Firstly, knowing who he is, knowing that he is one and he is not like any other and he is a Creator of all things therefore, everything other than Him His creation and naturally the ingrained quality of yearning for one deity that is what is ingrained within all of creation and that Eman is that which one needs in order to pull through and that's why he says he man and we're at seven and every they call us my friend they actually let the reason that they did this action was for this purpose. So it was a man and a loss

00:44:10--> 00:44:49

it kind of went down a belief in the last month on a conviction trust, honor love all of these aspects of worship this Amen And Allah so what I like to say is this is your motivation. This is what got you up in the middle of the night. This is what after Sha this will be all of us but the reality is after you may have had your hugest thought and you know you unbuckle your belt buckle you go to the extra hole you know that is you know, it's got to get a little bigger and Eli Okay, we got to get we gotta totally but you still getting up to go to totally. It's that a man that motivated you to do so inshallah it's that a man that pushed you to go and pray for a week with the Jamal

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

because hopefully when you are there you have which is next the destination. So we talked about the motivation and your destination that which pushed you to do an action is

00:45:00--> 00:45:38

Eman and whadjuk any man who wants to have the Eman the initial belief that you have, I believe that God created me. And I believe also that Allah made this obligatory being this Ramadan. And I believe also that this total week will make me a better person. If I go and pray to our week in the congregation or I pray at home with myself as opposed to someone did by himself or with his family. This is something that Allah loves, you know, Subhanallah i was i was i was at a public place the other day and he reminded me of my children and all of us are faced this you know, I saw the guy in the island he was with his children and his children like Baba, look at me, look at me, look at me

00:45:38--> 00:46:12

look at what I'm doing. And they were performing and actually look at so they wanted their dad to see them because they wanted their dad to be proud of them. Well we as all evangelia we want unless you kind of want to audit to see us we know that he sees us at all times. But we want him to be happy we want him to be pleased with us. You want to go to Jenna or last without says Robbie Allah who is one of the one that Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with them and they are pleased with with him what he has given them. So this Eman is something that is very, very important for us that when we have this motivation, and we have this belief in Allah, that he's made it obligatory, or

00:46:12--> 00:46:46

he's made it, you know, recommended for us and that we will receive the reward. That is where the anti SAP comes from the at SAP, as far as as mentioned of authority mentions, later on, we'll stop feeling for a yummy stuff dealing with the hang of it to me. He says that, you know, the one that hopes for the reward is the one does that does not feel a burden. When fasting was stuff good and 50 means heavy, it is not a heavy burden on you. And later most of the lift, am is like, oh man, it's gonna be the 16 hour part of the year, man.

00:46:48--> 00:47:31

I guess I'll do this, let's just let's just get it over with, right. We really have to check ourselves and see this at Sam, we're really hoping for the reward. We want this reward from Allah subhanho data because we know what it means because of that event. We've established that relationship or we're trying to establish the relationship because of that amen that we have. So trying to establish it setting your alarm clock looking at your calendars saying you know what, I'm going to make a change, or this one thing that I'm going to be consistent on which we'll talk about inshallah, tada, it is that motivation to get to a destination motivation, ie man, the destination

00:47:31--> 00:47:52

at SAP. And that is something that is so beautiful because when one is constantly yearning to get to that place, or constantly yearning for the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala what's the reward? rule fear Allah who met at the moment I'm being what's interesting is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam oufit Allah who met them matter,

00:47:53--> 00:48:34

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what previously his previous and future sins will be forgiven, but for us, our previous sins will be forgiven inshallah, if we had this motivation, trying to get to this destination hoping for the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And standing in Ramadan in prayer permitted total we the last third of the night, and then also fasting in this beautiful month, and standing for later to other this beautiful aspect of this motivation and destination is also so profound. Because when we look at our previous sense, you know, shout Ben as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said had that shot one young photo and huka theorem and he

00:48:34--> 00:49:17

said, this is a must that many, many people are negligent upon because it's between Roger menasha rehome the prohibited months, and also the month of Ramadan, it is the eighth month shabang and he loves to fast this month, and it was these were raised. What why he was fasting, because as scholars mentioned, even Roger and others the promise of the lotto, some always took advantage of doing actions of worship in times where people will be negligent. As we see in times of fitna the thought of a human to lay the left side of the night suburban layli when nasrani and prayer agree at night when people are asleep, trying to do actions of worship when the majority of people most likely may

00:49:17--> 00:49:55

not be doing it. Now with that reality let's look at the last 10 months because maybe shot back home The Riddler you know, we fasted a good amount of it, we're, we're conditioning ourselves to doing a great job. But the past 10 months, when we look back, there definitely was some toxic, there definitely was some negligence, there definitely was some sins that all of us could have committed. And that's the beautiful wisdom behind looking at all that who meant to put them in them be that it was a it's the passive tense of the verb, that it was forgiven, previous sins will be forgiven that we see in this in this beautiful, beautiful Hadith. But it's an encouragement for us to look at how

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

we can initially motivate ourselves to continue on this act.

00:50:00--> 00:50:37

While we do this act of motivation, that we want the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I want to end by saying, I do, I don't primarily like the word motivation a lot, because it is something that is temporary. It's when you light the fire to motivate, but to keep it lit, you have to be disciplined and discipline always outshines motivation. We're going to talk about that being the lead time. So my last point I'll make us of those that have this a man and he said when standing in the month of Ramadan, standing on data to other and fasting in this beautiful month hoping for his reward that is endless, and that cannot be domesticated to any shape, form or fashion. Hello.

00:50:40--> 00:50:54

Absolutely beautiful. It's like my fashion will feel at home at Academy Lambie. I never thought of the connection between the profits, I'm forgiven for all of his previous and future sins, and we seek to be forgiven for all of our previous sins. May Allah reward you.

00:50:57--> 00:51:01

We haven't heard much from Sr libnah, Chef Ibrahim. So

00:51:02--> 00:51:40

I thought it's kind of like, you know, I was reflecting on this the other day that all of like the concept of fasting itself, is all about building that Emacs up. Because, you know, fasting differs from other actions and that you can't see someone fast. You know, we meet each other and Ramadan, I assume you're fasting, you assume I'm fasting really, nobody knows if I'm sneaking off somewhere and eating some food. And if you're doing the same, a lot of them right. So at the end of the day, it's a secret between us in the loss of handle to Allah. And the only reason you would follow through on a fast is because you know, that one day you're going to meet a less penalty if one day you're going

00:51:40--> 00:52:11

to you know, get that reward from Allah subhana wa Tada, right. It's where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, This slimy forehead turn right to the one who is fasting, they have two forms of joy, the joy when they break their fast Well, if God has an under the robe and the joy when they meet Allah subhanaw taala. So the only reason we would fast is because we have that Amen, we're going to meet a loss penalty Allah, and that this fast is going to have value. And so it's kind of as a beautiful talk from shahidullah that really all of is building our email and it said, we're building our faith and are expecting that reward from a wasp

00:52:15--> 00:52:18

Xochimilco sister, look now Bismillah, Falcone

00:52:19--> 00:52:20

echolocating.

00:52:21--> 00:53:02

That just to reflect briefly, I should have the light, I think that's a, you know, a beautiful reminder. Because I know, for some of us, perhaps we've been fasting for many years. This was something that we were used to doing. And for others, maybe we're entering the the folds of Islam just recently, and maybe this is our first time with them. For some, maybe they were born into Islam. And maybe this is a practice they used to do when they were younger, but for some reason, this has been a time where they have fallen off of either sola or you know, prayer or or fasting. And for some, I know there's some, you know, there's some jokes that go around about Ramadan

00:53:02--> 00:53:41

Muslims, you know, but but this what you reminded us of, I should have done that is that, you know, it's never too late for us. Because with that, amen. And with that said, that can propel us to say, this is the Ramadan, I'm going to turn around, you know, and all you can do is just start one day at a time. So it's so it's really a blessed opportunity for those of us who are all of us on our spiritual journey. And for some of us who have really, you know, this is a time that we're just trying to come back from, from a period of time and where we have we've been heedless, or perhaps we've been a neglectful, I should say, I should say neglectful in our responsibilities for the last

00:53:41--> 00:54:09

month Allah, what a what a blessed opportunity, we have to start and it's never too late. And Allah smart Allah would never turn down your efforts, despite other people, maybe judging you and saying, oh, you're just you're just doing this, you know, because it's Ramadan. So we should never belittle such a thing. And, and I hope any of you out there that are watching and this is your, this is your time where you're really thinking I want to turn myself around, come to like, grab on to this opportunity. I just want to Allah, you know, inshallah, whatever you meant to say, I will reward you for it. inshallah.

00:54:11--> 00:54:12

I would just like to

00:54:14--> 00:54:30

Sheikh Abdullah Ibrahim for mentioning those things. I feel like the word sub sometimes like we could, we could, we could be in a position where we don't fully understand what it really means like this up. And I found that

00:54:31--> 00:54:52

the time where I fully understood that what this meant was when I coupled it with another word, which is called is the bar, right? And it's the bar means being mindful, present minded. So think about this for a second. What is the single most

00:54:53--> 00:54:59

effective ingredient to benefit from your journey to Medina and maca. Hello, this is

00:55:00--> 00:55:13

I believe this will be the top of the list, this is the single most effective ingredient in order to benefit. The more you have of this, the more you benefit, and the less you have less you benefit. Of course everyone benefits inshallah. And

00:55:15--> 00:55:54

if I'm not sure if your kin knows this, but I think I'm like, I can call first on almost every video that comes out. So the last video that came over, just came out a few minutes ago and I was just walking to the for my car to hear it. I played it. What would you say to the process? Um, if you've seen him show Homer, you know, I mean, I'm sure most of you haven't even watched the actual Homer. I just I just watching this, it's apologists this is this is something that you should think about it. So here's what is that one most the most effective ingredient and I believe it is for being present minded, when you arrive in Madina munawwara understanding that this is the same city, same soil that

00:55:54--> 00:56:38

the professor once walked upon. These are the this is the same mountain that the profs on one saw, this is the same Kaaba, where the prophet SAW with his tears with his blood, which he hung to hug on when she what she saw on the day of conquest of Makkah, what she saw when he was leaving Makkah, I mean, think about all these different things, and then you can feel it. And if you just look at the Kabak the Kaaba is really, I mean, nobody, like nobody in the world would make a home like this, you know, it's just, it's a structure there. And people you know that there's the curtain of the Kaaba, but it has such an important you know, it's, it plays such a huge role in our lives. When I look at

00:56:38--> 00:57:12

the Kaaba and this is what my father taught me this I look at the Kaaba, I try to think of all the different times that the Prophet some saw the Kaaba and the Kaaba and I, I will say if the Kaaba had a tongue, what would it say? Right, if the moon had a tongue loaded, say, if Ramadan could speak, what would it say? So have it's difficult to be present, if you're present minded, when you go to Medina and Mecca, you're able to benefit you kind of, that's why my mother would never walk with his shoes in Madina munawwara so many people, they're so pretty, like, I hope I don't walk on the same place where the person walked upon, right? And so I could speak about that some other day. But

00:57:12--> 00:57:52

coming back to the Milan, imagine, imagine Ramadan now, and imagine how the prophets of Salaam would interact with the month of Ramadan. And it's not like, you know, hunger was the order of the day before it was not like they were just hungry in Milan. Hunger was order of the day there they were hungry before and after. And the month of Ramadan came to them as as this gift. And they said, Okay, this is an opportunity to really benefit from the treasures of Allah pantalon His mercy. So they were so present minded about every single moment they could they said, the people in the past, you could literally count how many words they would say in the month of Ramadan, because they wanted to

00:57:52--> 00:58:31

live capitalize on every single moment, because it's not really at that point that it is tiles in front of you it is this big structure of monopoly, but they can look beyond that, you know, that's looking beyond that. Yes, it's a month of Ramadan, you know, Brahim said, Well, I don't know you're fasting if I'm fasting, but you know, that's the truth, but look beyond that. Look at look at how much benefit you can have from this. And then that leads you to this up, when you're present minded, then it leads you to now understanding what the reward is. And I don't know if I if there's anyone more excited honestly to even though this Ramadan will be extremely tough for our family because the

00:58:31--> 00:59:08

first lash Milan was the first Ramadan in which all of our brothers were together. Because there's COVID and we'd let that always me, Chicago, Aziz and more of the three of us, we let our RV and read the Quran in my mother's house, with my mother behind us, and our you know, my sister in law's my wife, and, you know, every after arrow guards me and my mother, because I'm the tea guy in my house. So I make all the different types of teas, I act like I can make tea, you know, make a lot of noise in the kitchen, break something, do this and, you know, pretend like I'm doing a lot. And so I mean, him used to make the tea and he used to serve. And I could imagine I just, I can't even imagine how

00:59:08--> 00:59:44

difficult it's gonna be for my mother and my father. And I know how difficult it be for myself. But at the same time, like this is another opportunity to really like okay, this is we're going to come this month of Ramadan, with a broken heart with a different type of feeling. And now we're gonna try to get even more reward from and maybe this is the month, which can completely heal us from our pain. That's how we're looking at this month. So Sheikh Abdullah, like thank you for mentioning the SSR part because I believe that it's coupled with this law, being mindful and present mind that if you don't have that, if you come to salah and you're not in a present mind that you're in Salah, how

00:59:44--> 00:59:52

can you be present minded enough to think seek the reward, so you have to be mindful that you're there and then it leads to seeking the reward.

00:59:54--> 00:59:55

cycle.

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

That's a beautiful point you mentioned it, just remind me about the we saw

01:00:00--> 01:00:34

The process on right? You know, the process that we saw is where he would fast continuously he wouldn't break as fast every month you continue on for days fasting. And then some of the companions would do it and then this and then the process of mastering why they're doing it and they mentioned it really we see you too awesome. He said, anyway, you'll earn money, Robbie will your skin and some of the scholars mentioned that it was because he was so moustache litter. ccme just like you mentioned, he was someone that was so present, that that wasn't even a thought, you know, Subhanallah and as you mentioned, the alone time, we're decaf. And I highly implore Muslims to

01:00:34--> 01:01:10

really you know, to make anti caffeine if possible if it's not the 10 nights one night between monger many shouted scholars have mentioned just you know, time on purpose spending alone with Allah subhanho wa Taala will lie when you reach a certain point to where you understand the whole concept of how the process automated we saw because you're just your mind is in your soul is so divided, so undivided, you just really were the last to kind of with data. And as you mentioned, what I tell a lot of youth, even new Muslims, you know, when you're praying and what do I think about when I pray and youth I tell you I tell my sons I know sometimes you're you're thinking you're not thinking

01:01:10--> 01:01:42

about you know your prayer when you're in your prayer, think about things that happened in your life and associate that to a name or action of a lawsuit kind of more than anything, you know, if it's something bad you've done before if it's something good good you've done you know and Hamid You know, he said hamdulillah a shocker just anything that's happened in your life you know, when you see movies you'll see scenes and things of that nature. So do the same thing when you're when you're praying or when you're trying to focus on Allah think of things that have happened in your life and that may help you be more stuck than someone that is present in the moment with a loss of kind of

01:01:42--> 01:01:46

with Allah and not anything else so exactly what they're allowed to tell you on that point that you added inshallah

01:01:50--> 01:01:56

I cannot relate with the example you gave me when you see movies like what is that all suffered?

01:01:57--> 01:01:58

There you go. You know what?

01:02:00--> 01:02:00

Let's

01:02:02--> 01:02:07

be honest started how many how many? How many you don't watch movies in English That's all it is. All right.

01:02:09--> 01:02:14

refuses to watch movies in English. I've never seen the guy eat non DC food.

01:02:15--> 01:02:23

Really must have the right man. Yeah, like how jeez that guy and had this like roasted chicken. What's this? You know? Let me go find

01:02:25--> 01:02:25

he's

01:02:27--> 01:02:37

only doesn't like like he's too good for Americano, coffee. He's too good. The key word for masking movies is documentary. He's going to say that hellos then yeah.

01:02:39--> 01:02:42

That's right. That's right. No, I'm sorry. Hey,

01:02:43--> 01:02:44

sorry about that. But yeah.

01:02:47--> 01:02:48

Chef,

01:02:49--> 01:02:55

Allah bless you. So you know inshallah, we've got just about 25 minutes or so left. So I want to

01:02:57--> 01:03:04

let's kind of go through sort of our final advices but aren't but you know, we really haven't heard much yet from Chica Brahim Stella Luna, so

01:03:06--> 01:03:22

I know both of you inshallah have a very specific message for us, then we can kind of just end off and I'll try not to, hopefully most of that I don't want to say anything that provokes a reaction kind of keep it keep it the way that it is. But by the way, one thing before I hand it back off and Sharla the ad

01:03:23--> 01:03:29

or the video that just went out on the on the meeting the profit slice on them

01:03:30--> 01:04:03

is a very that was a very beautiful experience for me personally. So I actually interviewed people and I had these questions I first put them in Medina I said, Have you ever been to Medina and then start to then ask them okay, well, do you think the Prophet slice on wanted to meet you? It's like me and then it's like yes, he actually did want to meet you and then after that, okay, well, what will you say when you meet him it his salatu salam so it's a it was a beautiful experience to ask a diverse group of people those questions so please do watch the video on Charlotte's I just got released actually before the webinar and benefit from a bit ninja and to remind everyone the Greek

01:04:03--> 01:04:29

Ramadan with sebata link is in the description sha Allah Tada. So please do inshallah consider being a keen supporter as always been an icon on your donation will be processed on the first of Ramadan and with that, inshallah Tada. We started this Mullah, your final advice some words for us as we're going into them a lot and then we'll go to shake the Brahim and sha Allah and give everyone just a few words to end off inshallah. inshallah.

01:04:30--> 01:04:50

Allah wa salatu salam ala cinema Sula, totally been enjoying the back and forth conversation I'm delighted to have benefiting and hamdulillah and as so I like this you know, find nuance you know, not really movies but documentaries, right. It's all in the wording. And that ties in nicely to what I was going to talk about until I kind of um, you know, one of the things

01:04:51--> 01:05:00

sister sought out handle I mentioned, you know, kind of the, the inner reflection and the and the inner type of worship that we want to be doing when it comes to posting about others.

01:05:00--> 01:05:12

There are people that can help us when it comes to blood on the wall last month, Allah and Sheikh Abdullah reminded us about, you know, our worship in that Hadees talking about fasting, prayer, and then

01:05:13--> 01:05:18

pm in particular, and then prayer and lots of other dreamlands or other chudleigh.

01:05:19--> 01:05:57

You know, and another form of worship that I would like us to think about is as our marma lead is our dealings with Allah subhanaw taala his creation, so part of our, you know, you know, responsibility towards the last month Allah is doing the the acts that he has commanded us to do, and that's between us and Allah smart Allah, when it comes to fasting when it comes to prayer, when it comes to the southern Gaza cut, of course, other cut benefits people but hamdulillah This is we're dealing with Allah subhanaw taala. And one of the ways in which we deal so often, and yet, maybe we're not so mindful of is when we speak to allow spontaneous creation. How are we speaking to

01:05:57--> 01:06:03

them? You know, in this very brief, concise, had the evidence of NSF nomadic or himolla?

01:06:04--> 01:06:11

Right, do I should say, may Allah be pleased with him, you know, as we know, that from the age of 10, that he lived with

01:06:13--> 01:06:26

his mom, you know, asked that he could serve Hoffman's license, we could learn for him from him. And he lived with him for 10 years, I should say. And, and one of the things that he reflected upon the character of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that

01:06:27--> 01:07:11

he mentioned that rasulillah peace and blessings be upon him, never said off to him. Never once said of, and he also continued and said, and he never said harshly. Why did you do that? or Why did you not do that? And it's, to me, this speaks volumes, it's kind of like, it really speaks volumes. Because when you translate, you know, you can say, no, maybe some of us say that today, when somebody asked us to do something, or it's in response to something, maybe it wasn't very nice that somebody says, but you know, we can do that in terms of an eye roll, shrugging our shoulders, a hand flip, like, whatever, or whatever, you know, subtitle, there's so many ways in which we can do that.

01:07:11--> 01:07:52

And if we were to only reflect upon how Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam dealt with people, you know, here, he's dealing with a youth, he's dealing with somebody who's serving him dealing with somebody in the privacy sometimes of his own home. And here is where, you know, we see, in many ways, of course, we see profiles, like someone's character, shine, because he was not the type of individual that only when he was in the market, he was very kind, because no one's gonna see him, or only as a statesman. And as meetings, that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be, you know, you know, moral and use good words and be kind to individuals or do the right thing. Um, you know,

01:07:52--> 01:08:32

it wasn't just a doubt, he was who he was, which was an amazing individual, Prophet, Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, always exhibiting good character, not only in public, but also in private. And, and I, this is something I would like to always work upon, you know, work on myself. And a reminder for all of us today, inshallah, that, actually, it's our private, you know, our private interactions with those who are around us the most, those are probably the interactions you want to be the most aware of, because you're on your best guard when, when you're outside when you're at work. But perhaps due to you know, we're tired. At the end of the day, we feel the most

01:08:32--> 01:09:09

comfortable we love these people the most yet, sometimes these are the people that we can, tends to just kind of let our guard down and and just say whatever. So how amazing is it? And there's so many times where we could point something out, especially the second part of the highlight, why did you do that? or Why did you not do that? You know, you see, you see the trash cans outside? And you tell your time? Why don't you put them in the trash? Or did they tell you not to play video games should be praying Did not you know, why didn't you do this? or Why did you do that? Subhanallah you know, we have a narration from Mr. Malik, when he one time a prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon

01:09:09--> 01:09:19

him, send him out, send him out on an errand and told him to do the errands. And to not to get caught up and play in the streets, you know, not to delay this errand. And,

01:09:21--> 01:09:59

of course, what happened as a youth and as he runs along, he went out and he saw kids playing in the street. And and he started playing and he forgot prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came up to him from behind, he put his hand on the shoulder, he did not say, what are you doing playing? And he did not say, why did you not already do? He just asked him knowing that he had not finished the errand. He said, Did you complete the errand? And then and I said, I'm going right now. I love his answer to I love Prophet Mohammed so long way sometimes, you know, question it wasn't Why didn't you or why did you? It was Did you do it given given Ennis the honorable opportunity

01:10:00--> 01:10:35

right to speak with dignity for himself, he didn't have to be ashamed. He didn't have to be put down. It wasn't a criticism. He says, I'm doing it right now, does it Subhanallah we can learn volumes from this type of interaction, it shows dealing with other people with kindness, even though you have the authority, whether you're in a business situation, whether in a family situation, you're a mentor, you're a parent, or as a child, as well, you know, you think, you know, um, you know, my parents, or maybe you're caring for elders, or maybe you know, you're in different situations where you think you can just answer in any way because especially in Ramadan, you're

01:10:35--> 01:10:38

tired, maybe you're hungry, maybe you're having that

01:10:39--> 01:10:59

before, before measure of headache that I always get tempted, or I shouldn't say always, I quite often get, and you just feel like you can respond in any way. But this is a reminder for us, that even when you have the authority or the position, to just kind of respond in any way that you really be mindful. And I like the word that

01:11:02--> 01:11:31

our beloved chip reminded us of, um, it's the head on that mindfulness, that mindfulness, you know, if we're mindful of our words should come they're human. If we're mindful of our words, if we're if we're really thinking and we're having Tough luck, we're thinking about is what I'm about to say pleasing to Allah, smart Allah, is what I'm about to say, is it displeasing to him, if we're mindful, then we are able to take our character to the next level, and really choose our words wisely.

01:11:32--> 01:12:12

Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned another Hadeeth, to speak good, or keep silent, speak good or keep silent. So if you know what you're going to say is not, you know, it's just kind of a little bit of attitude, it's, it's, maybe there's some validity in it, but it's not going to come off in the right way. delete it, and maybe when you're in a better situation, you can think of a better thing to say, address a real situation, timing is also important, then you can speak, um, but otherwise, silence is golden. And the last thing that I wanted to mention what's really interesting, and, you know, this is the psychology of, you know, negative negative talk, you

01:12:12--> 01:12:53

know, whether it's a self criticism, you know, for every negative self criticism that you think of in your head, it takes five to six times positive thoughts about yourself to overcome that. And the same ratio is really interesting. This is the research that that I've read, you know, as a, as a lead person, but that in business, that the most successful teams are the ones in which management had like a 5.6 ratio of negative, you know, criticisms, you know, this is probably not a good idea you know, obviously it's set in the right way but it's still considered negative that that their their positive comments outweigh the negative 5.6 to one it's really powerful I'm I'm here we see it

01:12:53--> 01:13:05

in action. So until we take this opportunity to be not only mindful of our worship, in terms of you know, when we're fasting and when we're praying, but also mindful of how we deal with a loved one thoughtless creation, inshallah

01:13:07--> 01:13:09

zachman welfare check Ibrahim

01:13:12--> 01:13:13

Rahim, you know,

01:13:14--> 01:13:16

just to give, inshallah some

01:13:17--> 01:14:00

reflection that I had recently just dealing with my community as we're coming into them online. And, you know, one of the things that has been, that I've been thinking about is, you know, we talk about some of the amazing examples of the righteous people when it came to this month of Ramadan, that, you know, for instance, Iceman or the Allahu Allah and recited the Quran, all of it, and one Raka during Ramadan, that would be not the medic and was also narrated in mathematic would do hot some of the Quran once every three days. And I think that those stories are so motivational if you're in the realm of their a badda. Right? If you're somebody who can do to have some of the Quran, you know, do

01:14:00--> 01:14:36

the Quran twice in normal blind, then you read these stories, and you're like, you know what, maybe I can do once a week. But the problem is, we have a lot of people in our community, they've never read the Quran cover to cover. And they'll hear some of the stories and it has a de motivating factor for them. And so I find that people sometimes fall into two categories. One of them is they think that you know what, these examples are way beyond me, I'm demotivated, there's no way I can accomplish anything in Milan. So I'm not even gonna try it because I know I'm going to fail. And the other kind of person is the one who says, You know what, let me try. If other people could do it,

01:14:36--> 01:14:59

I'll do it too. And they go as hard as they can. And they, you know, are praying and recite, don't put as much as they can. They do one night, two nights, three nights, and then they all burn out. And all of us know this. Anybody who's been at the masjid, we see the dip happening after a week of Ramadan. people stop showing up and, and we know that's the case. And so, you know, there's been amazing lessons that everybody's been sharing today. The one lesson that I just want people to know is

01:15:00--> 01:15:36

You know, the most important thing you can do for yourself and during Ramadan to prepare yourself for this month is to figure out things that you can do that are consistent that you can consistently carry on during the month. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was asked, we know he was asked what is the best deed? He said duanmu one of the what is consistent amongst the deeds even if it's a little bit, and another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam spoke to the people, he said, Hello minute, Ahmed metal to own, he said, do have the actions of the good deeds, that which you're capable of enduring, that what you're actually capable of doing. Like, don't take on so much that you know,

01:15:36--> 01:16:09

you're not capable of doing it, and that you're gonna burn out because of it and you're going to end up not being able to take advantage of this month. And then he said, Indeed, Allah does not tire until the servant tires, meaning that less power that is not tired of rewarding you of giving you until you tire out completely right. And so if you're doing something and then he sent in, Indeed, Allah loves the most the actions that are consistent. So if we're consistently doing something, even if it's small, even if it's not a lot, if we're consistently doing it throughout the month, and Allah is consistently rewarding us. And if we do so much in the beginning, and we try to do all that

01:16:09--> 01:16:43

we can and then we burn out real quick. What's happening is that Allah is rewarding you in the beginning, and then he's not rewarding you for the other days. And so that's something that's really important for us to think about as we're entering into this month. And you know, there's, there's an interesting story of the Prophet sallallahu. And he was sending them when he entered into the masjid. And he saw a rope tied between two pillars. So he asked the people what is this rope for? They said, this rope is for Xena for the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu. I do send them that she used to pray to hedge it. And sometimes she prayed so much that she was afraid, basically a falling.

01:16:43--> 01:17:18

So she would lean onto this rope and hold on to the rope. So they put this rope there so that she can hold on to it while she's praying. When the prophet SAW Allah He said, I heard this, he said, untied the rope. Don't let her have this rope. He said if she's tired, she should stop. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was mindful of people taking on more than they're capable of too quickly. Right? And so when we look at the example of the Prophet, we say, we want to have a Ramadan, like our Prophet sallallahu you send them the methodology of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam is to build himself up with consistent actions over time. So it's easy to look at the prophet

01:17:18--> 01:17:56

and see all the bad that he's doing and trying to do it right away, recreate it right away. But that was not the method of the Prophet the Prophet built himself up in his body rather slowly with consistent actions. And so we need to follow that same methodology. And the scholars they say, you know, beautiful statement Rahim Allah, if enough So, if enough so that Allah Subhana Allah has mercy on a person who knows themselves. And so one of the best things you can do coming into Ramadan is knowing yourself, who are you, right? And what are you capable of doing? What is you know, Ramadan comes in it appends our routines, our life changes that forces us out of our comfort zone. So

01:17:56--> 01:18:33

Ramadan should force you out of your comfort zone. But what is an achievable reasonable thing to do outside of your comfort zone? Right? If you rarely read the Quran? Can you make it a reasonable goal to recite half of the page a day? Right? Is that reasonable for you? Is that something that you're capable of doing? You need to ask yourself, know what you are capable of doing? And push yourself to go a little bit outside of your own comfort zone and have even the profits a little low and send them you know, Salatu hams for drama Ivan Juma Ramadan in Ramadan, that the Prophet SLM says, you know the five daily prayers and drama to drama and remote Guantanamo blaan will cut throughout the

01:18:33--> 01:19:10

Marina Bay never know that they are expiating have the sins that are between them. And you know, when you read this, it makes you think that you should be evaluating your drama to join us every week, you should evaluate your week every drama, and every row Milan you should evaluate one normal bump to the other. Right, what did I do last Ramadan? How can I make this Ramadan? 5% 10% better? 15% better, right? What did I do last year to do better and the people who really benefit from Milan are the ones who every year Ramadan, Ramadan is getting a little bit better getting a little bit better. And so inshallah that's just my little advice. And you know, finally the Prophet said

01:19:10--> 01:19:36

himself or call the boss at the door, right? You know, be moderate in your actions and try to be as close as you can. Eyes in the process. So as I'm saying, you're not going to be perfect. Nobody is going to be perfect. Don't give up on your deeds because it's not perfect because it will never be perfect. rather just keep trying keep doing as much as you can consistently even if you fail, just keep trying again, because it will never be perfect. And Allah subhana wa tada can still give us from his mercy and enter us into agenda because of our actions in this one.

01:19:38--> 01:19:44

Zack la Hayden Shaka Brahim and Pamela, you know, I really appreciate the the bridge.

01:19:45--> 01:19:59

Sister, look now, you talked about the importance of us trying harder to be kind and you know, it's not easy sometimes. And if we can be consistent in our behavior, like there's no way you go through 30 days of being so mindful of the way that you talk to people. The

01:20:00--> 01:20:37

You just go right back into it after all Milan and the same thing is true I think with a regimen of very bada you're not going to carry the same portion but you can carry the same motivation the same the same habits to a lesser extent after a Milan bit in the nighttime to resemble the prophets I seldom, most often, inshallah tada as we're as we're coming towards the end just to remind everyone once again, about the Greek Ramadan with South Africa campaign and I just want to say this Shahla, you might have noticed that hamdulillah it was with the support that we got last year Milan, in particular that we were able to produce multiple series this year and 100 and also European the

01:20:37--> 01:21:20

European team grew and our content grew we had prophetic parenting chief Ibrahim, Chef Abdullah did his series on pillars you know, sister SATA continued Michelle the wonderful work on you know, on trauma and the series they're handed in Donald brown I mean, and we've we've been able to grow and grow and grow and grow and muscular man series on bad and overdue or do poetry that's not out yet. We should do a high quality series though with you doing some finally let the overdue come out. inshallah but and instead of looking of course, has been a constant presence as a board member, as well but but we've been able to produce so much and hamdulillah and that's the idea that the more

01:21:20--> 01:21:44

inshallah tada support we get, the more that we can continue to crank out free resources inshallah for the benefit of the community. So please do consider supporting us just as you did last year, and did the line title if you can do more, you can do more and share with others the link and shot lots on it. And with the last seven minutes that we have, I'm going to go around and ask for one minutes. It's really hard for us to talk in one minute.

01:21:45--> 01:21:48

I'll just say me, I'll say me and mostly

01:21:49--> 01:22:07

everyone else Michelle, Allah knows how to talk in one minute but we Shaykh Abdullah just give you the facial expression and that'll tell you everything that you need to know. And I was gonna ask who started looking at by the way does this count as part of because if it is then bill is in trouble. He does a lot of face palming. Well, he doesn't want smiling so Michelle, I think

01:22:08--> 01:22:09

it's a good one.

01:22:12--> 01:22:18

Let's go around Sasha from de la Fonda. Give us one minute sort of last advice, word of advice to everyone Shahla.

01:22:21--> 01:22:25

You're muted. I wasn't serious about just needing to facepalm want to hear you man.

01:22:27--> 01:22:30

Uh, you know, Subhanallah as I was just thinking of a

01:22:32--> 01:22:33

you know, even a play him he mentioned in

01:22:35--> 01:22:40

one of his books, beautiful book, just talking about the importance of victory primarily.

01:22:41--> 01:22:53

The first part of it, he mentions a lot of really interesting points about a stiff comma and being upright, and how the how the heart can be upright. He mentioned something very beautiful. We kind of touched on in the beginning, when we kind of touched on it

01:22:54--> 01:23:36

in regards to sins, and how sins can be a blessing how, because when you ponder over your sin, you feel so much regret, and that can assist you in being more of a muchness and being sincere, and that's the reality of Toba. Toba is having to return to something. So you're kind of turning away from that sin because you feel so bad about it. That you are so sincere in the dollar, as opposed in a time of our thought and time of easy you make dog which is not which is which is preferred which is which is great. But when you think about that sin in prayer is something that you did weeks ago, you know, a month ago, a year ago, a decade ago, you pondering over that sin is one of the strongest

01:23:36--> 01:24:09

means for you to be a Muslim is to be sincere. So just taking advantage this this Ramadan now, even now and just thinking about some How am I doing a roll call, you know, why your insula, and anytime you know, especially when you're alone with the loss of pain with data, the time when you know that you had a grudge with somebody and you refused, you saw them far away, they didn't see you and you didn't want to walk that way to give them sometimes, you know, the person that you know, as you as a father, you as a mother that you said you raised your voice and you saw the facial expression on your son, but you wanted to remain the parent and didn't want to show some type of apology, or show

01:24:09--> 01:24:43

that you have some form of regret because you want to remain that authoritative, had that authoritative nature within the house, even though you know it's not right. Or the time that you you know, knew that you would not be consistent in something but you overwhelmed yourself because you want it to impress people, right? Each and every one of us has fallen into that. So I would just say look over those sins that you have, especially in times where you're alone Allah subhanho wa Taala Chicago he mentioned document mentioned when you're alone in the last month how to do a roll call every single night and just see wherever I've been deficient and inshallah that can be a means of

01:24:43--> 01:24:46

you increasing your amen and hoping for the ultimate reward from him inshallah Tom

01:24:48--> 01:24:49

long Hi, Ron sister Sana.

01:24:52--> 01:24:59

Just like well, I'll fight on, you know, as I was hearing both so that lagna and Chica Brahim speak the

01:25:00--> 01:25:41

The tip I'd like to give is more dedicated to the parents out there being a mother and hearing the things that that you were all sharing. You know, a lot of Ramadan one thing that's so powerful about it is that it builds our distress tolerance, it builds our distress tolerance in the ability to tolerate difficult situations because you're physically depriving yourself of something that you normally wouldn't deprive yourself of. And so your window of tolerance can increase and so you know, kind of tying that into what Senator Levin was saying about kind treatment toward other others you know, we build our our physical distress tolerance, but let's build our emotional distress tolerance

01:25:41--> 01:26:19

as well you know, and so thinking about the example a little sassy lamb in the way that he treated everybody including those who you know, he had so much power over us as parents you know, thinking about our children this Ramadan and trying to make it a very positive experience by building that distress tolerance and being able to you know, withstand some of the struggles that come through pausing for a moment tying into that theme of mindfulness we were talking about and pausing for just that present moment and deciding how do I want my child to remember this moment and realizing this is part of Ramadan in my Ramadan experience and my connection to all this data but also in the

01:26:19--> 01:26:22

experience of my child's Ramadan as well inshallah?

01:26:23--> 01:26:24

Not a colossal Tiki

01:26:25--> 01:27:06

shaker Brahim, give me a tweet like a tweetable quote, men advice really quick, like, if he invites, yeah, give me a pain bite. You know, I just want to show maybe just mentioned what the brothers have talked about earlier about having her daughter and for sure, in this month, and you know that when we say the word So sure, what does it mean? We could talk for a long time but its definition but let's count the other you know, he uses the word in one verse will flush it out in a slot to the right man sucks for the Day of Judgment, the all the sound will be hushed, you know, quiet down in front of the recommend. So how then what data and you know, it's interesting because part of the

01:27:06--> 01:27:33

show I think is really a chert we're turning down the volume of everything else in this world that doesn't matter to us, and only listening to our connection to Allah subhanho data and so as we enter this month that we want to have that presence and that connection to Allah subhana wa Tada, we should have that mindfulness that push or when we just look at all the things that are not useful for us in this world and try to turn that down that volume in this month and focus only on Allah subhanaw taala

01:27:34--> 01:27:39

that's so tweetable turn the volume down. It's like well if it started up now

01:27:40--> 01:28:19

is that cool? Okay, then I wait until a quick advice is uh, you know, everybody has a different life situation and it doesn't change during Ramadan so you have the single mom you know, who's who's you know, trying to hold the fort down doing everything you have people taking care of maybe their elderly parents you have students that are in the you know, the throes of completing a thesis or what have you and you have people you know, maybe who are taking care of small children. So your Ramadan is not going to look like everybody else's you know, and I think we can still benefit and inshallah Allah, Allah will still accept from us whatever it is that we're able to do. So plan your

01:28:19--> 01:28:47

Ramadan according to your life situation of course, push yourself and set those lofty goals. But this is not a time to feel bad because of a life situation that you're in that you can't change and just adjust your goals accordingly inshallah awesome awesome article awesome. Mufti sob Listen, this is not like when you stand up after my what I've been saying gonna be five minutes and it goes 1520 minutes All right, please. One minute that you get it wrong. It's the airline that says there'll be a short

01:28:49--> 01:28:49

short

01:28:52--> 01:28:57

no sign up. No, no long talk just give us a minute Bismillah an English please speak English please.

01:28:58--> 01:29:03

Come on then. I speak English inshallah. So I would say that

01:29:04--> 01:29:46

something that we can work on this Ramadan is our end of our fast which is the third time right what happens is sometimes we build up on our momentum, our spirituality. And at that moment, we we forget that we are not supposed to save our portions of food for one time and eat more rather, we're supposed to the point of Ramadan is try to eat less so we can make that the way of our life Isilon says in a beautiful she says beautiful beautiful power statement of her she said in our Bella in Hadith if you had it on my brother, Allah in the Vidya a Shiva The first thing that went wrong in this Noma after the person left this world was people started customarily habitually eating to their

01:29:46--> 01:29:59

fault always for in the cobbler Masha at Moton home when people eat to their full semi net up down home they of course you get unhealthy your body gets bigger for the sun. Alberto Lupo home was Yamaha to another place. Welcome

01:30:00--> 01:30:39

Hello, boom, then the hearts become hard and our craves become very our cribs become overpowering so we always have to go we were not if if we're sitting there after after we ate so much now we're like I just stay here I'm not sure if I go for tarawih I'm not sure about Ava and so I would say that you know if we can really it's not that hard if we could make it easy upon ourselves or a newcomer leaving them to Latin America no matter the color or my son when the when we when you eat your fault your neck we can't even move then the vision a person has it goes to sleep you can think about things anymore properly. Well how long does it take my you lose wisdom worker the worker added a lot

01:30:39--> 01:31:18

more under labor and the limbs of your body become weak and they sit down and they cannot worship Allah about that anymore. So I would say that try to add affordance or understand that use of an assumption say that when he was asked why do you always Why do you stay hungry more often? And he said that I stay hungry because I don't want to become insensitive to the people who are always hungry so I want to stay in that state. So I would say one thing we could do is try to eat less at a foreign soil give it a shot it's very powerful and at nighttime you can stand for a more ibadah and cry easier because the more you eat the heart becomes harder it becomes harder to do good all of

01:31:18--> 01:31:25

what you said right now would be just so easy if we just relied on sufficient provision only there's like a local

01:31:26--> 01:31:34
