Quran Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illAllah Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, what Can't we begin by praising Allah Subhana Allah, and we do as he commanded us to do in the forum that has refinished this glorious month of Ramadan. We glorify Him and we thank him and we declare his greatness and we declared the perfection of the message that he sent to us to a perfect example, in the messenger, Mohammed some a lot more than he was sending them. And we thank him particularly for the gift of guidance. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship or unconditional obedience except for him. And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final

00:02:24--> 00:03:07

messenger. Dear brothers and sisters, here we are at the end of this month. And here we are, once again another at a loss of Hannah hoods out of blessed us with to come together and to celebrate what was so special this month. The Ramadan recipe is very interesting, it's very unique. Because if you look at almost every other faith tradition, when the holiday season comes around, or when you have specific rituals that are not on a daily or a weekly or a monthly basis, you have things that you do that are completely unique to that time period. You have a special type of prayer, you have a special type of recital, you have a different scripture that you read. But here in llama long all

00:03:07--> 00:03:51

Allah subhana wa tada has done for us is given us complete focus cleared our attention so that we can focus on the things that we already do throughout the year to show us that the Quran is always special, but you have to give it time to show us that fasting is always special, but you have to give it time to show us that the amylase praying at night is always special, but you have to give it time Subhana Allah There is not a single ritual that we do in this month of Ramadan that is not done throughout the year. Even total prayer is only the amylase in Ramadan. All it is is the night prayer and Ramadan. There is nothing different that we read. There is no drop that we make that we don't

00:03:51--> 00:04:36

make out of Ramadan. We make the same dura Lama in Mecca flew into heaven for firefighting. Oh Allah you are the one who pardons and you are the one who forgives. You love to forgive. So forgive us you love to pardon. So pardon us. Allah doesn't stop being our food in any other time of the year. There are still times throughout the year we're in the night, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said fit lady Sarah, there is an hour in the night. No one calls upon Allah subhanho to Allah except that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah accepts this prayer. So what makes him so special? What makes the Ramadan special is not a new scripture. It's not a new prayer. It's not a new ritual. It's that we

00:04:36--> 00:05:00

give it time. It's that we give our time and energy to Allah subhanho wa Taala it's that we take a break for a moment for one month out of the year to remember Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and to feed our souls because throughout the year, we are feeding our bodies and feeding our desires at the expense of our souls. So it's the time that we give and it's the essence

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

That we give. And it's the attention that we give to a loss of Hannah hotel. And that amazing feeling that you felt every single night until we or in 200 When the man was reciting in a beautiful way, or out of father time or when you met with your family and your friends and you gave them some time, that special feeling is Ramadan recipe. And it's open to you throughout the year. Allah be Vickery la he Padma ingl Paulo, is it not in the remembrance of Allah that the hearts find peace, tranquility, that happiness and that amazing feeling that you're going to miss on a nightly basis is not a recipe that isn't recreated all throughout the year, you can still give time to Allah subhanho

00:05:45--> 00:06:25

wa Taala. You don't have to pray eight hours or 20 hours, but you can still get up and pray to You don't have to read a juice every day. But you can still read four or five pages a day. But what we know from human nature is that if you fail to plan then you plan to fail. If you want Ramadan to continue throughout the year, then you need to give yourself a routine. Give yourself something that's reasonable go back to those things that gave you happiness mumbled on and go to them in smaller doses. And at some time, so how to last some days, we're going to need to recreate that recipe. Some nights you're going to need to pray for the almond lay like you did a normal duck some

00:06:25--> 00:07:07

days you're going to need to read as much more as you did in a day of Ramadan. Sometimes our massages are going to have to put on programs that resemble the teacup because the prophets lysozyme used to do errante calf at different times throughout the year. We have to go back to that same recipe of happiness, that same recipe of success that tells us that our dunya is perceivable but it should not distract us laterally Kamala Kamala Raja, c'mon decorilla Don't let your wealth and don't let your children and don't let the beauties of this world the desires of this world distract you from the remembrance of Allah, Allah Vivica de la he popma in Nakuru is it not in the remembrance of

00:07:07--> 00:07:56

Allah that the hearts find rest? Go back to that recipe dear brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the Hadith from above, all right, all the Allahu taala that Allah subhanho wa Taala has said, you have no other Oh son of Adam, to follow up near Eva tea. give time to my worship, free yourself up to worship me. Give it attention. Focus yourself and focus your energy and focus your heart on Allah Subhana hotel. I'm not moussaka, Xena, I will fill your heart with wealth. I will fill your hearts with a feeling of satisfaction and tranquility. That cannot be purchased and that cannot be given to you by anything else in this world. The feeling that you will

00:07:56--> 00:08:41

have if you give me time. If you focus on worshiping me, if you give it just a few minutes a day, an hour of your attention. Allah subhana wa tada will fill your chest with wealth and fill your heart with richness and the Prophet slicin m says ladies Selena and capital T lotto that richness and wealth is not through gathering an abundance of material in this world. We're in the middle of dinner, but rather dinner is linen us wealth is the wealth of the soul. It's when you feel sufficient inside your hearts. And Allah says focus on me and I will fill your heart with wealth. I will make you feel good. I will make you feel rich. Something that nothing that is halal or haram in

00:08:41--> 00:09:24

this world can give you their ibadah to Allah subhana wa tada the worship to Allah subhanho wa Taala were in love. And if you don't do so, mela to your data shufflin when I'm so difficult, then I will fill your hands with poverty and I will not do away will or I will fill your hands with buisiness and exhaustion and I will not do away with your poverty. Your brothers and sisters the Ramadan recipe, the Ramadan recipe, what is it that we did this month that made it so special? Think back right now to the moment that you felt best? Think back right now if you had one moment where you felt like you did not have a care in the world where you had one moment of who sure and you're out?

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

Wouldn't you love to have that throughout the year. All you have to do is schedule it. planets. Go back to a loss of Hannah, what's the way that you did in Ramadan and make a routine? Give yourself a regimen once a week, once a month, even whatever it may be, give it time and you will find that satisfaction in your heart. And I want to end with a saying from our Brother Mohammed Ali. May Allah have mercy on him who I had the honor and many people have the honor of praying janazah on him somehow along the beginning of this month, and he was asked what would you like people to

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

Remember us? What would you like people to say about you after you've passed away? So he said, I'd like for them to say that he took a few cups of love. Which we all need the normal love the love of Allah subhana wa tada and the love of one another to clear our hearts from people to remove the grudges. So that we can focus our hearts on a loss of Hana without it which is why we are told to do away with the grudges. He said he took one tablespoon of patience. And Allah subhana wa tada calls swam in the Koran he calls fasting patience was there in all the slavery was fala see closest to Allah with your patience and with your prayer, one teaspoon of generosity. Ramadan is the month of

00:10:42--> 00:11:21

sadaqa it taught us to give even when we're uncomfortable. We were bombarded with fundraisers for our own good to disconnect ourselves from the dunya as we simultaneously learned that happiness does not come from it, because we were finding a different type of tranquility within Ramadan. one pint of kindness to the symbol covey when she Ajit sabak, smiling in the face of your brother's a charity, one of the most beautiful things that we take from that month but I'm alone recipe are the moments of sweetness and support and in a father with one another. The jokes that we tell with one another. It's hella it's from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one quart of

00:11:21--> 00:11:57

laughter how many moments of laughter Did you share with your brothers and sisters? In this month? How many special moments Did you have this problem? How many people will you walk up to after salah and give a hug after it's after this age hookah? Knowing that you just went through something special together remembering those moments of joy? This message will be filled with laughter and shout lots of laughter this photo and guess what the message should be filled with smiles and laughter It's not just the Ramadan thing. It's allowed to be happy in the masjid. It's allowed to laugh in the masjid. It's allowed to smile in the masjid. They used to do so in the time of the

00:11:57--> 00:12:40

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But what is the unhealthy laughter the one that the Prophet slicin um, said, causes you to ignore the reality of your existence and the existence of the world around you. And so one quart of laughter, but one pinch of concern. You still have empathy. And you still think about those other than you. And then he mixed willingness with happiness. And he added lots of faith, and he stirred it up well, then he spread it over a span of a lifetime. And he served it to each and every deserving person that he met. That's the Ramadan recipe. That's the Muhammad Ali recipe. That's the recipe of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Let's normalize this

00:12:40--> 00:13:22

recipe in our lives. Let's plan to go back in small doses on a consistent basis to the things that made us happy and Ramadan. A humble family in a lot of one of our encounters the Prophet slicin said the most beloved of actions to Allah are the ones that are consistent even if they are small. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to forgive us to accept our prayers and our fasting and our recitation of liquid to overlook our shortcomings. We asked Allah subhanaw taala to not allow our hearts to go astray after what they have discovered. In this month we asked Allah subhanaw taala yamo palaemon Kuru submit coluna Anna Deena Oh, you who turns hearts leave our hearts firm on your path and we ask

00:13:22--> 00:13:33

a lot to forgive us if we go astray or become heedless and to make the best of our actions. The last of them alone I mean, Apollo probably had was stuck for a while you will know from what he said he must have been first off to number one before walking.
