Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah cats everyone. I was gonna say welcome back to call Anthony for 30 how to live my mind even went right straight to let me say welcome back to call on 3430. Welcome to our post on Milan webinar and have been a lot of it. I mean, it's not 100 all slots are sold out at Osaka in Manila. So I have the love of rhyming. As you can see, we have the whole team here. I'm the developer, I mean, not the whole team. But all of the speakers here I have the love I mean, and I think that we need this with everything that's going on. And I'll say this, because just to start right off the bat, I think all of us are rightfully consumed by what's happening in Philistine and

00:00:42--> 00:01:21

watching the news constantly and engaging in sha Allah tada as much as we can, doing the best that we can. And there can be a tendency when there's something like that going on to put everything else to the side in the sense of everybody and a sense of worship. And to you know, say well, now's not the time to talk about this, let's do let's just do another webinar, let's do another conversation about what's happening in Philistine and I think that it's important for us to remember and I'll probably say this a few times, inshallah tada that it is our connection to Eva that fuels us and that ultimately brings about the goodness that we are seeking but the nighttime for ourselves and

00:01:21--> 00:02:03

for our brothers and sisters and so on so we continue to talk about you know, our connection to Allah as those of our connection to the our connection to our good deeds beyond little Milan while never being distant from our brothers and sisters emotionally mentally and even spiritually. So how did it all but I mean, it's, it is still important for us and I want to thank everyone that's here at home that and if you look across your screen I will start with to my to my right because mostly sob wanted so bad to have that I'm on one so bad to be all the way on the right. He insisted on his position on the screen. And that's just you know, we just had to to to acknowledge it or we had to

00:02:03--> 00:02:43

just let it go. Okay, so Mufti Saab is as hobbled I mean, he wants to be Dr. tasneem is not as How was she mad, but she just happens to be on my left right now. So Dr. tasneem in Pakenham did another but I mean, and of course, the Sif Abdullah Doru, who's back at him that in NA and everyone's been been clamoring about Chicago, the ones are going to come back so he's back and handed down by me. Very happy to have him he's not going to jump into my my room I don't think he will at least that but if he disappeared at some point, I'll start worrying but but I mean, Shaykh Abdullah, Sheikh Ibrahim, Hindi and Hamza Donato. But I mean, and of course Sister najwa hamdulillah Allah May Allah

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

bless you all. How's everyone doing?

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

I'm doing

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

good on the right handle I'm so happy

00:02:58--> 00:03:05

because 134 30 you guys have looked down upon him and you guys give me some real like, you know, confidence issues in that time.

00:03:06--> 00:03:14

If you do realize that that what this you know, what you're saying about the bottom row now, so at some point, I think we're just gonna have to start flipping boxes around.

00:03:15--> 00:03:19

You've made such a big deal about positioning now we're just gonna have to keep on switching it around.

00:03:21--> 00:03:28

Being on the left, yeah, what are you trying to say by Dr. tasneem she finished her PhD so now we relegate her to the left is that what happened?

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

Because she left Michigan that's why

00:03:33--> 00:03:37

you left because he left Michigan I'm living like he was waiting will say that.

00:03:39--> 00:03:43

That seemed to there seemed to be some anger in that it wasn't just like a

00:03:45--> 00:03:51

no no, no, we would love for her and her husband to be back in Michigan so they can help us over here but said you know, so good.

00:03:54--> 00:04:16

inshallah, we're going to try and make this more conversational inshallah to Allah but I'm going to ask everyone a question about particularly you know, how we keep it going after Ramadan and sha Allah and hopefully you know, will be practical, but also, inshallah tada everyone will be building on what was said before them. So I'm going to ask a question, and inshallah Tada, everyone is welcome to chime in.

00:04:17--> 00:04:21

So I'm going to start with shaker Brahim inshallah, because shaker Brahim actually

00:04:22--> 00:04:57

is addressing Bismillah. What I think a lot of us might be feeling about the regrets with Ramadan. And sometimes we go straight to, you know, the habits after Ramadan, and we make the assumption that everyone felt like they had an amazing, Milan. And the reality is, is that some people feel like they didn't have the ideal of Milan. Some people feel like they didn't achieve what they wanted to achieve in Ramadan. And so my question to you shaker Brahim is that as people might have felt this engaged during Ramadan, they might feel disappointed with their spiritual goals. They're just Khadija is already crying about it because she's remembering how disappointed she was. How do we

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

mean how do we move forward if we feel like we didn't have the right

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

Do Ramadan experience so let's sort of start there inshallah time then we'll build on that.

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

Spend that 100 Rahim you know, I feel a certain affinity to this question because you know in most places in Canada, I think we've been under lockdown for a long time now. And certainly during Ramadan, most of us were unable to attend the massages or steer family and have a thought with other Muslims. And it's been like two years now, where we've been away from the masjid during Ramadan. I think it's on people's minds. You know, anecdotally I send messages to people just asking them like, how do you feel this trauma bond versus last. And pretty much everyone felt like this one was not as good, probably because of the stress of what we've been facing. And, you know, some kind of love,

00:05:45--> 00:06:20

like, even if you weren't in lockdown, and I know, like a lot of places in the US have been opening up. And so each country and district is probably different one from the other. But even if you weren't in lockdown, I think sometimes there's external stresses that can happen, right? Like a death of a family member, for instance, or problems at work or problems with your kids. There's so many external factors that sometimes knock us off course during the month of Ramadan or they deplete us during the month of Ramadan. Even what's happening to our brothers and sisters in Palestine, I think for some Muslims, it you know, energized or a dad made the may make even better to make them

00:06:20--> 00:06:52

you know, pray even deeper. But for some people might have just knocked them off course and they just might have felt very deflated. So now that I'm on is over and you're kind of looking back. And you know, we're talking about moving forward with momentum. A lot of people are going to be thinking what momentum like I didn't have any momentum during that month, or I really felt deflated or I didn't achieve the goals that I wanted to achieve. And I think about a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he said in the the Rabi comfier Yama definitely never had, which is a bit difficult to translate that the profits will allow me to send them says that during the days

00:06:52--> 00:07:27

of the year, there are, you know, literally means a breeze, but there are gifts from a loss of hamazon. And what the scholars intend to, you know, interpret this to mean is that there are seasons in the days of the year seasons of the forgiveness of a love the mercy of other days of the year that are better than other days, right. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says For touto, Buddha, like expose yourself to these days engage in these days, that perhaps you might get some of the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala during them. And so there are days, you know, there are seasons of the mercy of Allah of his forgiveness of is a blessing. And so imagine for a moment you

00:07:27--> 00:08:01

owned a business, and your business was a seasonal business. So your business, for instance, is a tourist, you know, focused or centric business. And let's say because of COVID lock downs or, or other things that might have happened in your life, other stresses that occurred in your life that happened during the season, you your business ends up suffering, right, you end up looking back at the end of the season, you're like, I didn't make as much money as I should have made, right, I didn't do as well as I should have done in my business. Here's the thing, it's natural to feel disappointed to feel like you've missed out. But dwelling on it too much is not going to benefit you

00:08:01--> 00:08:38

dwelling on it too much is not going to make your business better. Right. Instead, the only solution is to plan for the next season. right to say, okay, maybe part of the reason I didn't do so well, during Ramadan, maybe part of the reason why I was knocked off course, quite easily is because I didn't strengthen myself beforehand. Like I didn't strengthen my business before the season. So when I came in season, I was easily knocked off course. And so maybe what I can do is for next season, I make sure that I'm better prepared, I make sure that I'm prepared enough that whatever comes my way, I can still have a certain amount of focus on my business, or in this case, on our even on our

00:08:38--> 00:09:10

connection to a less penalty item. And so if you feel like you weren't focused enough last this past from a blog, and if you feel like you didn't take advantage of the season of Allah subhanaw taala. I love his forgiveness of his blessings enough, it's probably a sign that we didn't prepare enough beforehand. We had strengthened our Eman enough we didn't get enough into. We didn't, you know, do enough solder. We didn't do enough night prayers. And so when we were faced with stress, and with anxiety, it knocked us off course and we didn't do as well. And so feeling bad about it probably is not going to be too helpful. Instead, what's important is for us to resolve ourselves moving forward

00:09:10--> 00:09:43

to try to be better prepared, right in parallel, even though that I mentioned it doesn't specify Ramadan. Although of course, you know, Milan is one of the seasons of the forgiveness of Allah, it is the month of patients the month before and the month of July. But at the same time, there are other days in the year that are also important. So coming up soon, there's going to be the 10 days of the hijjah. Can we prepare ourselves for those 10 days and do better in those 10 days and then build as we try to get to the next one. And that's something that should wait on our minds throughout the year like the setup, as we all know, for half of the year that used to pray for a lot

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

to accept what they did in the previous Ramadan. And for the next half of the year, they would pray for a lot to allow them to witness the next level bond. So their whole year was a lot of planning around the concept of Ramadan and trying to do the best in that time. And so what's important for us in sha Allah, even if we haven't done that, that

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

Well during the past on mobile I feel like we failed a little bit. It's important for us to realize we need to resolve to do better resolve to prepare ourselves better, even if it's by doing small things throughout the year to inshallah build our Eman and strengthen our man next room over external factors come our way and charlo are able to overcome them via de la

00:10:22--> 00:10:23

vaca warfare

00:10:25--> 00:10:26

shala anyone likes to jump in but

00:10:30--> 00:10:50

I mean of course when you say that just just see I know the guy with a turban on my right has something to say Just say it spit it out just every time that happened just knew that I didn't I didn't say that. I assume I saw that you know? I mean you said it behind the scenes you know like so you you literally said it indirectly behind the scenes so I mean

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

if that's what you want so you know

00:10:58--> 00:11:34

the one of the most important qualities of a believer is this personal done with the last part Allah right whenever I did, you know, this alarm I had the job of alika took on all of this is my effort and the results are in your hands. I could all like you know, you're the one that gives me the ability You're the one that put me in the situation you did what and having the host no one after the amyl is such an important aspect of our of our Deen that Oh, well you know, I could this is what I could manage what I managed to do, and leave it the idea that a person has that Allah did not accept it's true. We should not mistake in the fact that we should not just be arrogant after doing

00:11:34--> 00:11:37

good deeds. You know, that's true that a believer is

00:11:39--> 00:12:09

you know, he has the x excellent in his deed all the time you tries his best. At the same time. It's personal gondola. So what's your Brahim setting? I feel I feel for my fellow Canadians are right across the border because the the environment of Ramadan is in the masajid you know they had 36 eight salons in Windsor 36 try to put that in right across the border 36 because 10 people are coming they started to eat seller after that they went off all the way to Lhasa because they got that in some motherboards a lot laaser was supposed to do so Lord

00:12:11--> 00:12:43

was like when someone so they did the dental before like right before the end of next Well, I mean, you can feel the vibe for 810 at a time 10 at a time you know, so I should call him you know the all the fellow Canadians and to all people all over the world. Whatever you did on mobile and sha Allah will accept you know, keep your head up. And you know, the good deeds you did in your home could be much more rewarding the good deeds are personally in the machines you know, doesn't sometimes even matter what gathering you're part of, sometimes you can be part of the guidance of the code but still written among those who are negligent and sometimes you can be part of the Guardians of people

00:12:43--> 00:13:07

who are negligent but it would be written among those who are remembering the last part Allah so inshallah you know it was it was a challenge for all of you all wherever you were and inshallah like with all your deeds, I think now it's about let's the if Allah gives us an opportunity to go to the back of the machines after the next Ramadan or after these few months, we will show a lot that we are worthy of being back here. That's that's a sentiment that I think we should develop and

00:13:16--> 00:13:23

I mean, it's just as wanting to go on I don't want to take from the show. This is like the perfect transition for whatever I'm going to share later inshallah so please

00:13:25--> 00:14:05

Oh, so if that's the case, yeah, since it's a perfect transition, but I think can tell us a little bit manana. let's let's let's hear what you guys say. Okay, now it's just a Mashallah that's a beautiful, beautiful, how do you feel beautiful man and the meaning it's to it's to cherish those beautiful days and it reminds me so panela that I always tell myself Firstly, in the communities, to be a spiritual opportunists to take advantage of these beautiful days and then, you know, take a look back at the city if you see how within the city Allah is always always giving us an opportunity to quote unquote, do the right thing, or to do better or to always increase ourselves in different

00:14:05--> 00:14:36

ways. I mean, whether it's fasting whether it's charity, as he mentioned, you know, the days that are coming up mean to take 10 days of good job whether six days of show while we have always have the last third of the night, you know, you have you know, during the day even continuously fasting, so there's always opportunities, but it's just again, you know, and especially interesting enough for hearts and it's a beautiful beautiful word that is you know, like a breeze or something that you're waiting for and of those that have made hij when it's hot, and it's after Thor and you're in Mena and then that breeze comes to power there's nothing like it so using that as a met

00:14:36--> 00:14:54

metaphorically is a beautiful beautiful thing within our lives and so kind of like it can even be your perception your enough how maybe someone else is maybe slightly different for someone else, but it's just to remember that there will always be better days and to cherish those better days whether it's universal being what's in the city, or personally inshallah llamas best

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

chef Abdullah is 3431 of your enough. Just like oh,

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

If I had Yes, that I thought

00:15:07--> 00:15:49

I have a question on this front before we move on to doctor testing. Michelle, it's a question after question, but I think for a lot of us check Ibrahim, and I'll maybe direct it to sister ninja as well, particularly because, honestly, you know, I think in the States, we were having a beautiful Milan experience and then Philistine did consume, like, like, you know what broke out and upset. You just felt like a turn in the normal atmosphere and leveled on mood. And of course, it's not like we want to enjoy a spiritual high and everything being so perfect when everything is not an ignore it and that that spiritually took us away. No, but it but it changed. It changed the entire sort of

00:15:49--> 00:16:07

atmosphere of Ramadan, right that last week where people typically were all the conversations are 27th night and last 10 nights and don't forget 29th 30th. But I think Philistine was weighing heavy on a lot of people was happening in the upside, especially seeing the images out of an mcsa. So I think a lot of people felt like they

00:16:09--> 00:16:46

they were going there on an incline and then they just kind of they neglected, if you will, some of their their, their goals in that process. I'm not sure sister Nigel in particular. You have anything to say about that, right? The way that we can feel paralyzed by that right. So it's spiritually speaking, if you don't care, when you see what's happening, then that's a problem. Right? So you should care spiritually. If you don't, that's actually an indictment. But But how do we deal with sort of, some of us were paralyzed, and then we're now regretful, because we were paralyzed, I'm thinking that we missed out particularly on the best part of them alone.

00:16:48--> 00:16:53

You know, something that that was said, that really stood out to me, it's even even before with folstein.

00:16:54--> 00:17:32

People told me over and over that this Ramadan was more challenging than last one, I don't know if it was the shutdown, or the fatigue from the pandemic, but a lot of my clients that there are students hit right which finals, or, you know, I, my peer group, a lot of people with parents, where they would want to go, including myself, want to go to pray to throw away and then you have your baby crying, it's like, oh, my God, what am I supposed to do. And so we have these circumstances, that prevent us from being able to do all the things that we want to do. But going back and thinking about the best of Allah, that maybe he'll even reward us more for having the intention for working

00:17:32--> 00:17:36

hard or striving harder to do those exact same deeds.

00:17:37--> 00:17:43

And may He reward us even though we felt paralyzed or we felt like immobilized

00:17:44--> 00:18:22

and it's interesting that you mentioned that because with hosting, in particular, you have people who completely became paralyzed, it was very difficult for them and May Allah reward them for that struggle and just maintaining that that bad, you know, for them to be able to continue that. And it's probably you had other people who that need although it was very painful, it brought them closer to Allah like Allah we are so in need of you. This I mean, who can change the circumstances except Allah, so you had people who gravitated towards him as well. But going back to to knowing that Allah knows what's in our hearts, he knows the struggle that we have. And so if it's harder for

00:18:22--> 00:18:36

you to pray, it's harder for you just to do anything. him knowing that and taking comfort in that and that just making dinner afterwards will make us the heart after Ramadan but making so far and then making you know, that a lot accepts the best of us whatever we're able to do.

00:18:38--> 00:19:08

I would just add to that, you know, we know the profits are low I do send them said, you know, the one was difficulty reciting the Quran is rewarded double so sometimes the difficulty increases our reward. Even though our actions are lesser, you're reciting less for and then the person who is easy for them, Allah can reward you more So yeah, I mean, it's stressful times it's difficult times but like, you know, the sister Nigel said and mafia man said like, it doesn't mean that the reward is going to be less than a loss penalty I that knows our circumstances knows what's in our hearts.

00:19:09--> 00:19:49

Like my lockout, I think that's very important. Insha Allah times sort of a key point is many of us focus on the feeling and not the fact that number one we are dependent on Allah's mercy. Number two, we look at our actions and our deeds and how to continue those deeds inshallah to Allah and so it is an understanding that in Allah's mercy, Allah recognizes not just the final output, but Allah subhanaw taala also sees the struggle to get to where we were getting to so if it became harder to do certain things, if it became harder to read harder to engage, then inshallah tada we pray that that's all part of the acceptance. So Dr. Test name

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

and if you can, please speak in non PhD terms inshallah, tada, you can just keep it, you know, until, basic for essence Allah which habits

00:20:00--> 00:20:35

people focus on after all along. So now that you know Ramadan, you were engaging in so many different acts of worship and you're maintaining all of them, or you're trying to maintain them throughout the month but maintaining them throughout the year is not realistic. And a chef bohem said, these are enough ahat they're they're breezes Have mercy, their seasons of mercy. So now that the season that season has passed, we have another nuff hanaway of the six of chawan. And things coming up that head john so much, but what do people prioritize now in terms of what they keep in terms of actual habits and, and deeds after them a lot.

00:20:37--> 00:21:17

So I think the way this conversation was going was perfect, Liu did that. And because the idea that I wanted to focus on our part of the headache that I want to focus on, was the fact that then you see that helical momentum agenda. No one is entering genda, based off of their actions. So I think that we want to talk about the deeds that we're going to be doing after Ramadan, that it's really we need to just to switch our perspectives a bit, and really focus on this discussion that we're having that no matter what you did all of them a lot. We spend our, you know, our days fasting, our nights awake and prayer, we were if for those of you who weren't, you know, didn't have even the best of

00:21:17--> 00:21:52

the mobile phones, you were doing something different, at least one thing, if it wasn't, you know, reading more, it was definitely fasting for most people, it was trying to do your best it was that mentality that you didn't so something was different about them a lot. But no matter whether you were one to be doing just you know, your bare minimum and you felt like you were Madonna wasn't all there, or you were that person that had you know, one of the best moments of your life. At the end of the day, no matter how much effort you put in that effort, those actual deeds are what are going to bring us into will take us into agenda, that it's almost pantallas mercy that allows puntata who

00:21:52--> 00:22:27

he is that that is what's going to take us agenda. And that was something that's really emphasized especially the last 10 minutes of Milan, if you think back to the main dot that the Prophet peace be upon him, encouraged us to resign the last 10 nights of Ramadan. In the caf when Kenny went to him last Friday, fun now, y'all know you're you know, you're the most generous you love to forgive who you are, you're the mercy of who you are, of the love that you give us is such that you want to forgive us and we're begging Alice and her dad, as a result, please forgive us. And so when you really focus on that mentality that the purpose of Milan wasn't so you could, you know, compete with

00:22:27--> 00:23:06

others to get in as many good deeds, the deeds themselves, of course, that's something that we're encouraged to do and and we want to do but don't lose sight of that end goal, which at the end of the day, is to recognize a loss peddanna for who he is, it's to recognize that this month is out of a loss patatas that it was it's as a result of Allah's mercy and His beautiful attributes, His love, His care, his generosity, that is what gets our animals accepted. And so when you think of this, when you have this mentality, it really helps to prepare for you know, what am I going to do after Milan? What are those habits? Because again, sometimes what happens is that you know what, I have

00:23:06--> 00:23:42

the best of them alongs or you know what, maybe I had a great room a lot but you know life is kicking back in things are getting busy it's not a Milan I don't have the blessing of the Milan the vibe, the energy, the the shell team, the demons are backed out now. And what happens is that because of this, sometimes we look at the our actions, our day to day actions, and we belittle that that you know what if I couldn't do my job, every single day, I was reading 20 pages of glass every single day, I was reading one page, I was doing something that was beyond my more, because I can't keep up with it, then it's all or nothing we have this black and white mentality. And again, we have

00:23:42--> 00:24:20

this mentality because we don't have this this big picture in mind that it's not about your actions, the bottles petard is mercy. And in that very same hobbies, you have my my absolute favorite, you know, reminder for the pasta salad, that after, after the Prophet says that you know what nothing none of your deeds are getting into agenda is what that what happens next is the Father Son and says and have been madly in love. And one will have applied that the best of actions unless his honor are those that are consistent, even if they're small. There's a very important connection between these two. Because when you recognize that all of your actions don't really matter, except that it's

00:24:20--> 00:24:52

almost His mercy that's entering his into Jenna, and then almost had that as telling us exactly what he wants that you know, but what I'll tell you what, it's gonna get you into Jenna, it's that just do something consistent. Because when you're doing something small and consistent, you're constantly reminding yourself almost without his mercy, you're constantly reminding yourself of that real purpose. And that purpose is is pleasing unless puntata. Les has given us that free pass here. This is what's pleasing to Me doing something small but consistent. And with that in mind when you're thinking about the habits that you want to embody in the next few months, and I'll wrap up with

00:24:52--> 00:24:54

this, it's the fact that

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

that you want to be you want to think about everything you're doing the similans didn't

00:25:00--> 00:25:35

had to have been one thing that you felt that really pushed you that really moved you compared to everything else. And so for some people that might have been reading tough see it reading, you know, the, the reasons that some of the verses were revealed. For some of you that might have been getting up to pray at night. For some of you, it might have been the fascinating thing about that one thing that made you feel a little extra good inside, and it doesn't have to be, you know, something that made you cry or something that made you you know, change your life, but really something that brought you just that one inch closer to Allah spawn, Tada. And now focusing on solely on that

00:25:35--> 00:26:11

thing, if that was reading four and 10 pages a day, just try to read one page a day, if you were reading one page a day, one verse a day. And again, a lot of times the reason we refuse are we sort of neglect doing that, you know, you might be thinking yourself, come on one verse a day, I just came out of this month, and I was going hard. What's the point, I might as well not do anything. But when you have that mentality, that it's not about the action. Let's put that aside, you just do remember me often do good things often. And I will do the rest I'll get you into gentlemen, that is really if we have that mentality. We're going to start off small, we're going to start off with just

00:26:11--> 00:26:39

going to do one verse every single day. And then I promise you and include once in a few years, you'll realize how that that one good deed will snowball into really long term habits and things that we can that looking back will be entirely different people as a result of that one simple action. So really, just focusing on the big picture, reminding ourselves what the purpose of Wonder was, what the purpose of any of our actions are, and then what inshallah was patata will do the rest, and we'll enter Jenna through His mercy.

00:26:41--> 00:26:42

Work Moonwalker.

00:26:43--> 00:26:50

My boss, you see multi sub one stories like let me add it. Let me start some of

00:26:52--> 00:26:52

that okay.

00:26:54--> 00:27:29

I think you know, as growing up, I suffered this a lot too. This is something that's very close to me. Like, we were always immersed in good environments, like for so long, extended period of time, like we were in a boarding school for like seven months and you come home and you're eating hot cheetos watching Detroit Red Wings and jolis Rena like what we just came from, like, the highest of the highest, the lowest lows, right? But you know, one day one of our artists Skylar, she's a great artist she said to me that you know she said to me that praying Muslim Salah at Joe Louis arena is more rewarding than praying it or school

00:27:31--> 00:28:12

like okay, clearly you know, like, think about that like she was like it's like I don't know where she got that from but that there's there's a reason why that you know that famous two are about you know, the, the Sufi Hadith in telemovie that you know, you don't get that the 1 million reward deeds and 1 million sins forgiven and you know, $1 million jot ranks, you know, 1 million good deeds, the Allah forgives 1 million sins now the reason why I'm doing ranks if you recite this when you enter to the masjid, these this reward is given to the person who recites this door when entering to the mall. So sometimes, like going into these places like that, that you know that Ramadan vibe and

00:28:12--> 00:28:20

everything that's happening and hold on to you, you come out in Milan, notice the mentioned then you feel like what's the point now? It's all or nothing? No, like, just reciting La ilaha illallah wa they will actually

00:28:21--> 00:28:52

call Allah How do you feel you meet? Or how you lay a mood via the hill hydrobiologia coalition Kadir that's one of the reason of this. I mean, that's it you recite that we entered the mall, like it's fine, you're in the mall now. But the fact that you remembered Allah even this little in the mall, you can that you're getting those rewards because you've got you got that in the mall. I mean, if you enter into the machine, that would not have been the same, you know, the same reward. And so like, what you're saying off the scene, it makes sense because we come from institutions, you come back, you go Umbra hedge, when you come back like now you're like, I remember one time when for

00:28:52--> 00:29:33

Hutch. I think what the OSHA homeless alumni came back. And I went straight from the airport to Wayne State University for my class. And I remember that night before I was praying Isha and Madina, munawwara right in front of the agenda. The next day, I was praying HL Salah with my sweater on the ground next to the staircase, and campus will lie the next day. And I couldn't I was like, man, like, so that you know this. And if you don't if you This is one of my favorite statements of a Sahabi because it's so like, it hits me all the time. The idea that even Sahaba went through this, like they never were on one level all the time. They even went through this, or simply No daddy says

00:29:33--> 00:29:58

Lola Annie akuna fi akula comm a cool new feature highly, highly sought after lecanto myalgia Norma choquette tofi Delica if it wasn't, if I wasn't any of these three conditions all my life, I know for sure. I've been a person of Jelena and I would have no doubt meaning there were three conditions in his life where he felt like he reached the top and that doesn't that means that he wasn't always there at all times. And he says she

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


00:30:00--> 00:30:34

In asthma oh crap when I recite the Quran or when I hear it being recited what you actually hit too hot butter Rasulullah Salam when I am there at the sermon of the porcelain when you actually hit to generate it And the third thing he said is when I would when I would attend to janazah you know these three things I mean you know we'd nowadays we don't attend the Genesis the same way a graveyard is a siren place with a loud message you know, that's what your mama says. Right? So it's a silent graveyard of the silent place with a loud message. So these three these three conditions if I'm in one of these three, massacre to be there like I would be I would have no doubt I'll be a

00:30:34--> 00:30:50

person of Jelena so started listening what you said that's true man, you know, we have this feeling that Ramadan, do everything that now what's the I don't get the same vibes? Honestly, that's true, you had that feeling, but there's so much you can do after and you will still get the reward for it and inshallah you felt that before she goes in to try to get back to that feeling, inshallah.

00:30:54--> 00:31:31

So, how I just got to know people are gonna ask about the drive by the way that you not had lulla why the whole Ashley killer level more cool, I'll hand you where you need to have a high, you know, you're more to be a little haywire locally shaking Kudu I will put it in Charlottetown in the comments as well. By the way, just something very interesting about that, during that in that sense is that the only addition to the common iteration of that, which is neither of the who would actually color, no one would call out handle who are an equity share in Kadir is up where you meet to a higher note. He gives life he gives death and he is ever living and he does not die. And one of

00:31:31--> 00:32:06

the wisdoms of that is that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught us a llama. Now he lays it all out there is no life except for the life of the hereafter. So the fact that you bring yourself to that when you go to the marketplace, when you go to, you know, a place where and I get asked the question, by the way all the time, like what if, what if I say do I want to enter into like Amazon or online shopping since things have changed, you know, I say that a lot is more merciful and generous bidding an item. But the idea was when you walk into a marketplace, even physically, it's so easy to quickly get distracted. Like if you've ever seen the traditional soup, it's so loud, you

00:32:06--> 00:32:42

know, like it's so loud, it's so distract, it's bargaining. It's all types of things going on. And even without all of that, like you walk into the marketplace, you're so distracted and it's like you're reminding yourself about Piazza sloty hat, you're reminding yourself of the things which about the society hat what Allah mentions in the Quran, of the righteous good deeds that stay are with the rhythm of Tafseer mentioned with Dr. Chesney was just talking about the small consistent good deeds, particularly the kids, particularly the remembrance of Allah. So the fact that when you go there, you still remind yourself that life, True Life is not in these things true life is beyond

00:32:42--> 00:33:24

these material things and that's why What does Allah reward you with this incredible reward? Right? So in many ways, I think the message here is to do these good deeds outside of Ramadan can even be more rewardable in the sense of your spiritual traction and movement towards the loss of hundreds you never know even the reward that may come from Allah subhana wa tada because it's so much harder to do these good deeds outside of Ramadan. So Ramadan magnifies because of the virtue of Ramadan. But after Ramadan consistency magnifies because of the I don't want to say lack of virtue because every month has its virtue but because of the downtime, if you will, that everyone is taking

00:33:25--> 00:33:26

afternoon mama

00:33:28--> 00:33:32

love to hear from inshallah Tada, sister Natasha Rahim Shahada.

00:33:33--> 00:33:37

Now I saw lots of articles. There's a lot in there, I mean, Subhanallah, how he mentioned,

00:33:38--> 00:34:12

you know, when coming into the sock, and if we just ponder over the different, the different supplications and their connection with the events, there's a reason behind it, whether we know it or not, there's an ultimate reason behind, as you alluded to, as you mentioned, you're here you meet and then distractions as upon law, you know, distraction is that which is dis from traction, that when we look at the word in English, traction means that you have something you know, tightly knit or something that you have, but distraction takes you away from that detaches you from that. And I mean, even when you mentioned Amazon Subhanallah you know, I can get more more more distracted

00:34:12--> 00:34:44

online and on Amazon then going into the store, you know, physically because you're, you know, they're related, they're related items, you click on that, oh, okay, then you click on this, you click on that next thing you know, was it's Lauren, you just click on you know, wrap your budget. So, that is definitely a distraction with all this social media. This is all kinds of distractions. Mr. Pamela, just seeing how the other year the supplications are tied to particular events, whether we know what it is or not, we know that I came that the all wise, you know, gave that to the province in a lot and it was something in the past. So some said that for a particular reason, which

00:34:44--> 00:35:00

is which is so profound, meaning that we can always have an opportunity to continue learning. And then lastly, that that beautiful Hadith from Dr. tasneem, which she mentioned, one of my favorite Hadith scholars tell this to my kids to new Muslims to myself, is that you know

00:35:00--> 00:35:33

panela don't ever be let's get on them in on my goofy shaylen right Do not be little any good deed at all. And realizing that not just reading the other day on camera which book it was when I was talking about how we should learn from children from babies. Because naturally naturally within our fitrah when a baby tries to win, tries to stand and walk, they'll fall, but then they'll get right back up, and I'm almost sure you're single for these right now. Yeah, having the whole lemon getting in there falling, they're getting up and they're not going to give up. Because they see it all. They're not going to give up, we should take lessons from them, you know, and take it just slowly

00:35:33--> 00:35:38

but surely, and realizing that we will be in lifespan without a obtain our goal show.

00:35:39--> 00:35:42

The determination of babies man dazeem of babies

00:35:45--> 00:35:51

they are determined children, hamsters, natural anything from you before we go, go on Chola

00:35:52--> 00:36:27

you know, something that just stands out for me is just kind of love. When we look at that and vichara throughout the day, it's it's in the mundane things, it's in the everyday things. It's, you know, a lot of times we associate the spiritual highs with with Ramadan, or you know, the bigger things. But it's it's that consistency throughout the day, when you go to the bathroom, when you go to the marketplace. Those are the things those are the small embedded that really add up at the end of the day. And that gives hope to that, you know, even if you didn't have the best of all Don's all that opportunity just in your everyday every night that you have to put to work on that.

00:36:29--> 00:36:30

You brought up Khadija chef Abdullah

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

I always suppose try to think about for the devil the Allahu taala and have never had it on my

00:36:38--> 00:36:42

hands all the time. I'm home. First of all, Milan, right. But

00:36:43--> 00:37:05

you know, like so the point is, is that it's probably think about the sabich won't even that didn't have it on a lot. But their place with Allah subhana wa Tada. So we're not dependent our station with Allah is not dependent on one of the seasons of Allah subhana wa tada that we certainly avail ourselves of them. And And truly, I think what you just mentioned Sr najwa does that come along here for that?

00:37:06--> 00:37:17

The reminder that it's in the daily things, Chef Abdullah, what's one word that you would use to describe the other 11 months of the year compared to Milan?

00:37:18--> 00:37:40

Uh, that's a great question. I think, I think it would be a, you know, really, for Ramadan. For me, it's I mean, it really ties to the Hadith that Dr. tesni mentioned, you know, really discipline is to be someone that is conscious of wanting to be disciplined, but you know, when you're disciplined in something, that means you have an ultimate goal or purpose that you're trying to get to.

00:37:42--> 00:38:19

But ultimately, that cannot really be fortified, unless there is no value. So I value a certain thing that I want to get to or to please so in this case, you know, we want to, we value Allah subhana wa Taala and who he is and what he loves, you know, and it's interesting, I think, shiffman some Tamia he mentions in in herbal dia, he mentioned that true love is not obtained until you love what the beloved loves, right? So that's something that's very important in regards to a loss of kind of with Allah, when we love what he loves, and the Prophet sallallaahu Selim loves, it's not something that's going to be overnight. And there may be some things, you know that that hacker is

00:38:19--> 00:38:33

so dirty now that in our in our chest, we don't understand why. Or it may not be something that we're privy to, or you know, fond of from the *tier. I mean, we're human beings. But it's important to realize that, okay, this month of Ramadan,

00:38:34--> 00:39:13

I've done something amazing. You know, we don't realize the fact that we have fasted for more than 12 or 16 hours, you haven't ate or drank, you haven't done these things. And then the next month, you go back to eating and drinking. But if you just take a look back, just because just that reality, you left all of that for something. Now, why did you do that? That's what you should constantly remember and then see that, okay, I'm able to do this for 30 days, or however many days 1520 something days, whether it was from an excuse, or whether, you know, he tried your best, but realize that it's possible. And I think that's important for us for Muslims to remember is that

00:39:13--> 00:39:51

within these 11 months, we should look at Ramadan as a catalyst for numerous personal possibilities. And fasting is just one of them. You know, and one thing that I really wanted to capitalize on capitalism in the community and for myself initially, is, you know, Subhanallah, the concept of sleep in particular, I don't think that's talked about a lot when we talk about Muslims and human beings and sleep, and how sleep some some individuals say, especially to say that it's even more important than exercise and diet combined. And we see within the secret of Islam, you know, the promise of the lie, there was something he would sleep in the first part of the night, and he would

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

wake up in the last third, generally generically, and even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not like to engage in frivolous talk immediately after selected he

00:40:00--> 00:40:35

So he would take his time and go to sleep, and he would wake up in the last third of the night. So looking at yourself and seeing, okay, which aspect of my sleep can i refine because it's all inclusive. You know, we talk about Madonna, we could talk about you know, diet and once you break your fast with, which is primarily important, we can talk about, you know, you know, a lot of guys guys and people coming up and talking about working out in Ramadan, what should I do, what should I not do? Again, back to that hadith of taking those little deeds and seeing you personally, where you thrive and where you shine, like what I tell new Muslims in particular, okay, which a lot would be

00:40:35--> 00:41:10

easiest for you in the beginning to start with, are you a morning person, evening person, start with that, and then throughout in the beginning, middle and end, always ask Allah subhana wa Taala, to keep you firm upon that and to stay upon it. So within these 11 months, it's about what personal practices that you have, that you can be consistent on and ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep you firm upon it. So along with that, Heidi, this sister testing he was mentioning, there's another Hadith that I always love to mention as well, which is the Hadith and this to Jude yummo kalibo calusa, because we are authentic, the prophets in line, it was seldom used to say and as sujood. And it's

00:41:10--> 00:41:48

interesting that his wife, I sure heard this when he was saying this in the middle of the night when she woke up, and she would reach from when she touched the bottom of his feet. And that's where you're saying sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So particularly when looking at that particular act of yours, and I'm particularly wanting to touch on sleep, and due to time constriction, looking at how we can use that to be something virtuous for us in these next 11 months. So that word really comes to my mind. And it's a very, very important word, which is very comprehensive, is his discipline. And I usually define that as constant accept control to reach a particular goal, right, you have

00:41:48--> 00:42:22

this access control to reach that particular goal. And it is guaranteed isn't the last kind of went down by the permission of Allah, if one is sincere for a loss of kind of $1. For instance, if you say, Okay, I want to, you know, sleep early in the night to wake up the last night of the night because I was doing that in the last 10 nights, right? It doesn't have to be the last the rest of the 11 months, it could be one night out of the week that you say, you know what, I want to wake up the last night in the night and I want to ask Allah for this, I want to wake up the last day of the night, and I just want to put my hands up and draw and then the next month, I want to wake up the

00:42:22--> 00:43:02

last of the night and then pray two rakaat or pray with, you know, something that will assist you in that. I think inshallah is something that is is very, very good. So when I look think of the 11 months, I think of the word discipline, but when we think of this word discipline, we have to take a step back and look at our purpose, and what we really value when we say Allah, but personally we say Allah, what does that mean for us personally, it may be one particular name, or attribute of him that really hones in is really personal for you actualize it in your life and think about it. And within these 11 months, be around the people be around the places inshallah, inshallah, that will

00:43:02--> 00:43:21

assist you, and being consistent in that particular action in sha Allah to Allah. And that's something that I really want to remind all of us in sha Allah is to think of the word discipline, and being consistent on that for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we will by the permission of Allah with good thoughts, as I mentioned, we will reach that particular goal inshallah.

00:43:22--> 00:44:01

Zack can walk in, as part of the Hadith at the end, the Hadith that was mentioned by Dr. tasneem, that's been alluded to a few times the end of it is taboo, you'll reach your destination. So they do a party will walk over who will share the mantle jetty will custom custom logo, that if you if you continue to act with this idea of balance and moderation and determination, keep making your progress towards Allah subhanaw taala. And you make take advantage of the early morning and of the evening, then you will reach your destination like an assurance from the messengers on the lines of them. And I think that one thing you mentioned that hit me right away was trying to be around the

00:44:01--> 00:44:42

people in the places. And this is something I said in the Monday night reminder too. And I'll mention it here. bringing some of the Ramadan ingredients into your show up is so important and into your outside into all the other months bringing some of the ingredients of Ramadan. What were the places what were the people who were the people? What were some of the things that really brought life to my heart, and that really spiritually charged me in Ramadan that I can still bring outside of law particularly in show one, right where six days of fasting at least right? Because you have makeup days, you may have makeup days, so that's 1/4 or 1/3 of the month, you can be fasting, right?

00:44:43--> 00:44:48

And if you just think about that with everything else, the day that I fast for example,

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

what if I read the same amount of gold on the day that I fasted show was that I did on my blog, My typical day normal, but what if I bring that because there are different strategies, right so that's

00:45:00--> 00:45:28

Take this much every day of chawan or my day of fasting and chawan What if I bring the same amount of Koran that I used to bring in a lot? What if those are the days for example, I choose you mentioned once a week, let's say you choose once a week to pray pm. And obviously total weight has its own its own thing, but how do I bring that about that particular that particular night so some of the Ramadan ingredients are very important inshallah, for us to, to incorporate as well.

00:45:31--> 00:46:09

Saying no, to the mention of sleep, because for those who know me, I take my sleep very seriously. But I was really surprised to find I remember when we were reading through an outline, so that is Sadie keen, he was talking about corrupters of the heart and, you know, how can you sort of rectify some of the diseases, the heart, he talks about sluggishness is one of them of, like, you're being you're sluggish, because you're tired, you're over eating, and all of that, and he, he specifically mentioned, the need this medical need at the time, you know, 1000 years ago, for for eight hours of sleep every night. And I think, that I remember was a really big turning point. Because, you know,

00:46:09--> 00:46:43

at that point in my life, you know, the, having been an undergrad every year before that, you know, throughout high school throughout undergrad, I was always told, you know, sleep is for the weak if you're sleeping, that means you're not productive. That means you know, there's there's like this correlation between you don't have enough goals or motivation that you're willing to sacrifice eight hours a night, every, every night for sleep. And I really, I think, like you were mentioning tshabalala it's important to think of sleep as as vital to enhance our worship enhance our in to gain that discipline, it really changes your life when you're able to manage Of course not everyone

00:46:43--> 00:47:17

has the luxury of sleeping eight hours but making sleep a priority and not sacrificing it. It isn't necessary really thinking about it as our whole holistic well being our health or the way we eat the way we sleep. The way we work out all of this is is vital to not just you know ritual acts of worship, but our the the degree of worship we do in all of our acts, whether that's through our work or relationships through school, really thinking about it as this big picture of how you want to feel and how you want and the strength you have to contribute in every aspect.

00:47:19--> 00:47:59

No, Mashallah. Mashallah was no, it was sleeping is something you know, it's something that I just think about, I remember sticking was like Cipolla, the things that are beyond our control within ourselves that we can't even control, there has to be a wisdom behind it to where it's beneficial for our existence. And sleep is one of them. So, we cannot be little that and studies are showing that like I said, it's, it's highly important, it's very important to literally for your brain, for as I say brainwashing, it cleanses your brain, even for weight loss. I mean, if you look at what's called melatonin, that's, that's an element, that's the kind of hormone that is released, even helps

00:47:59--> 00:48:35

with weight loss, and you know, it's secreted really in the darkness, you know, Subhanallah so there's a lot of benefits behind sleep in and of itself, and there has to be because of last month, Allah has placed it within each and every one of us. So it's an amazing thing. And I could go on about that. But just like luck is it's really really important that Ramadan is a time particularly of sleep, that we can really study ourselves and see what is best for ourselves and Charlottetown Shaka Villa, is it true that you don't actually work out you just you just said sleep is more important than food and working out? You just sleep a lot? That's all it is. Right? And then we just

00:48:35--> 00:48:49

that's that's how muscles grow, right? Yes, what I'm hearing from you, you know, just asleep and then you'll naturally wake up and biceps and triceps and everything was just mostly the keys. Yeah. You have to dream about working out. See when you do that.

00:48:50--> 00:48:59

Like a shadow fairy lahemaa life's dream about you know me caution. You know, knowledge. You dream about lifting weights, and you wake up and then it just

00:49:01--> 00:49:06

I don't know if you have that man's raising his hand. Oh, the last five minutes. Oh, I thought you were frozen.

00:49:08--> 00:49:10

I thought you were trying to facepalm

00:49:12--> 00:49:15

about this conversation, you know?

00:49:17--> 00:49:50

Yeah, I mean, you don't want to look mother mentioned the word the qualities of believers and sort of made me known. He also mentions the qualities of people who were on the other side, the disbelievers the people of Makkah and SubhanAllah. He could have mentioned any quality like they're they they have a whole bucket list of bad qualities. And so if Allah highlights one of the bad qualities, that means there's something wrong with that. And he mentions mistake B and A B he Samuel ontology, Ron, they were arrogant and Samuel and they were people of somewhat older some of I mean, some people they would talk at night, they would gossip at nighttime stay up late at night. So Allah

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

took our time and put it in the Quran to highlight the I mean, he could have mentioned like when you read that he could have mentioned anything with the gumball humans.

00:50:00--> 00:50:28

And some are like seriously like that. I mean that it is enough to tell us we got to watch ourselves because if the people have mcha they're bad quality was they used to sit and indulge in someone which is after after it becomes dark at night. So maybe array of Croatia solo, just sitting and chilling and gossiping. This was mentioned as a bad quality of the disbelievers of mcca. That means that's something we cannot incorporate, because it will have a very bad impact in our life. So, you know, just to just, you know, go off of what Dr. Singh were mentioning.

00:50:30--> 00:51:07

sense, exactly. That's very powerful. It's probably like the opposite of whether the normani Luckily, more than the believers are, you know, when it comes to speech, idle speech, they're very, very particular about not engaging in idle speech. When you're talking about the others. You just think about spiritually what that does to you, by the way, the late night gossip and the way you know, when people get into these long chats, right in the comments section somewhere or wherever social media outlet or WhatsApp or whatever it is, just how spiritually detrimental that quickly becomes and how the time that it wastes in the spirituality that it diminishes as well. So because

00:51:07--> 00:51:20

because I think that's, that's related as well to sleep, you're thinking about, oh, you know, well, we're supposed to be staying up at night. And you know, the Sahaba barely slept. And they were awakened pm when they were awake, they weren't awake,

00:51:21--> 00:51:35

you know, wasting hours and gossip. And I think that when we, when we look at the prophets lie, some of the injunction to try sleep after a shot, for example. Those are very powerful concepts, you know, how intertwined they truly all are.

00:51:36--> 00:51:52

I think people are gonna go online and start now Amazon and looking for the right mattress, because that's what they got from the opinion post on hold on webinars how to sleep better. And while you're at it, you find that perfect white mattress, you might find the matching turban, shut down the white turban,

00:51:54--> 00:52:00

scrap this, you know, have it right and shot, let's match your bed related and the related section. Make sure

00:52:02--> 00:52:03

he's part of your pillow and the rest of the blanket.

00:52:10--> 00:52:22

Shots fired from chef Abdullah, Chef Abdullah does not usually fire shots at people. He just took one aim. So it's all good. I Next time, I'll just come with a probable punching bag with your cane shirt on it.

00:52:26--> 00:52:26

on top.

00:52:32--> 00:52:35

Chef Ibrahim and I are in the middle. Back to

00:52:37--> 00:52:41

chef Abdullah reaching across or this way, right? Yeah, reaching across the screen.

00:52:43--> 00:52:45

therapists therapist and a doctor on each side. So

00:52:49--> 00:52:51

we're coming up on Sunday love your

00:52:55--> 00:52:55


00:52:57--> 00:53:20

We need tools and strategies, true tools and strategies. I mean, we've talked about the mercy of Allah, we've talked about the feeling we've talked about, you know, the importance of consistency. But some tools and strategies people do want to turn these habits into long term ones, right. And they've they've definitely been exposed to some of their potential and similan what are some tools and strategies and charlatans that we can take from this all?

00:53:23--> 00:54:08

Yeah, so first and foremost, what Dr. Just name said is internalizing the whole idea of that the most of the love deeds to Allah are the ones that are consistent, even if they are a few. And taking that internalizing that. Because, you know, after the high of Ramadan, people begin to feel unmotivated. You know, there's a few days afterwards with the adjustment. But, you know, when we when we look at that Hadeeth and we also look at research, we know that the people who are more likely to continue maintaining strides towards their goals are the ones that that Doom consistently. And one of my favorite tools for you know, staying consistent and trying to work towards goals is

00:54:08--> 00:54:23

make it hard for you to say no to that goal, or make it hard for you to say no to that good deed. And so when we look at habit forming and routines, now there are three, three or four major parts of establishing

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

a habit that becomes automatic. The first is usually there's some kind of cue or trigger, then there is the behavior itself. And then there's the water the gratification afterwards. A lot of times in these discussions we're looking at, we just talked about the behavior. Okay, well let me do this, let me do that. But we don't look at the cue or the trigger right before because that if you can get that that lays the foundation, it makes it easier for you to be able to carry on with those good deeds after Ramadan and throughout the entire year inshallah. So if I were to give some examples, if you were one of those people who gave

00:55:00--> 00:55:41

Money every every day during Ramadan or every night in the last 10 nights, what can you do, so that you cannot say no to that good deed, if you go to the bank or if you go even to, you know, when you go to the grocery store asked if you want to withdraw money, you can set the foundation by once a month, when you have that opportunity, you're there anyway, you're at the bank or at the grocery store anyway, withdraw $20 and $5 bills and put it in your pocket and make the intention every time you go to a Friday fair for the people who can go to Friday. And make the intention that every time you go, you're going to give $5 that day, you have set the foundation, how can you say no to that

00:55:41--> 00:55:57

you're going to the banker store, and you're going to Friday for Anyway, you have your wallet anyway, you're gonna pass by the donation box anyway. So you're setting that foundation of, well, how can I say no to that. So it can be more likely that you're going to give, if you were one of those people who decided to do

00:55:59--> 00:56:03

to to sort of prayers during the day or maybe even at night,

00:56:04--> 00:56:42

you know, make in a way that you can continue that you cannot say no to yourself. So it might be you know, praying Isha on the earlier side so that you have that you're not tired, that you have the motivation to be able to pray to, to for work as right after I show and show Oh count is clear, I'm in bed for you. Or if you're one of those people that gets up for Professor prayer earlier, you know you're making we'll do it right before Fisher comes in just five minutes earlier, if you can, you know, catch one record before Frederick comes in, then you have sustained that habit. So you're you're putting yourself in situations that it makes it very easy for you to continue on even like

00:56:42--> 00:56:43

reading Quran.

00:56:44--> 00:57:24

If you were reading Quran daily, if you can, you know, there's the core and apps, move it to your homescreen right next to your Facebook app or whatever app, so that when you come on and your board, you know, literally your thumb, it's half a quarter of an inch from from that app. So you're more likely to be like, you know what, let me just open up that app and, and read a few a sec. So making it easy for yourself to, to maintain those good deeds and focusing on being consistent. Even if they are a few, you're much more likely not even just in show one, but for the whole entire year in sha Allah, that you'll be able to stay nice things. And you know, whenever we also we all fail, I think

00:57:24--> 00:57:46

it was Dr. Singh, who was also talking about black and white thinking, it's so easy for us to say, Well, I didn't do it this day or two days went by, and I didn't do whatever that good deed was. And so using but statements, meaning that, you know, today, I didn't pray my send a prayer, but tomorrow, inshallah I will or maybe I didn't pray my sooner for better, but I will for sure.

00:57:47--> 00:57:59

So not making it a final thing than not having that black and white thinking that even if I even if I mess up a few days, in sha Allah, you know, there's more opportunities for me to continue. It's not necessarily about

00:58:01--> 00:58:36

that I have to do every single day, but it's consistency, whatever that might look like. And there might be days, that's more clustered weeks where you're decent work closer together, but it's continuing even when you fail, even when you you know you're struggling getting back up and doing that deed. And lastly, I would also suggest, you know, writing it down, writing it down helps I don't know about anybody else, but I write down goals and I write things I leave them to the side. And because time passes by I'm like, and I see it and I'm like I can't I can't believe I wrote that, you know, like that was actually really good, I should have put it somewhere where I would remember.

00:58:36--> 00:59:04

So you know, picking two or three things that you want to work on. If you pick too many, you know, whether you're in the field of business or even psychotherapy, you don't ever want to have too many goals at one time. You want them to be measurably want to be small and just two or three right those things and then like want a post it note put on the back of your door. So ensure that you remember and that that you're more likely to to not forget and that you can continue revisiting those those deeds

00:59:06--> 00:59:44

long term because the idea is that, you know, we don't want to come back to ramadan ramadan each year the way we left off, you know, that has a lot to do with the highs and the lows. But if we you know, have have that Ramadan and of course we're going to come down from the high that's completely natural. But even if like we're 1% better than the year before that that is improvement that is really good. So that each year in sha Allah even if you stick to some really small deeds and you're consistent you're coming back to that Ramadan to the new Ramadan better than before. So instead of like having this high and low you know this up and down up and down, Ganja ups, but you know, it's

00:59:44--> 00:59:51

almost like there's stairs and shot along like you're getting better and better as the time as the time goes by.

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

Common Law fair, very helpful tips on how to learn actually something you mentioned that honestly it's it's immediate and it's very practical.

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

was the the social media apps in the app, right? You just think about the wisdom from the Quran and the Sunnah of the entire idea of putting barriers between you and sin, and then exposing yourself to the hat exposing yourself to the breezes of mercy from Allah. But then that's a tummy rule to lots of shape on don't follow the footsteps of shape lon, you know, john had just put it put it put a barrier between you and the mercy of the disobedience of Allah subhanaw, taala wherever you can. And sometimes taking certain apps and putting them in one folder, for example, or putting them to where you have to make a few extra clicks, whereas the right ones are very easy for you to access. And

01:00:41--> 01:00:54

honestly, that's a good strategy. In this case, what you're saying put your quota on an app right next to the app that you typically would use. That way, it's like, you know, your thumb might accidentally open.

01:00:55--> 01:01:10

The other one, hopefully, the good one. Until that time, it'll keep you keep you busy and engaged. But in the nighttime, it's very, very helpful tools and strategies. Anyone want to share any comments? and Shawn, then we'll go off to we're going to move to sobbing Charlotte. So I just had a quick comment.

01:01:11--> 01:01:48

I think it may be just the disciplinary and me coming out by recently I was listening and there's some, you know, fancy French philosopher, put it, put it simply, he said that a goal without a plan is just a wish. And I hear this a lot people are always asking, you know, so how do I make sure I get these things don't seem I can't like I can't get up attention. I can't, I can't review my ad and I asked the first question. So it knows, did you go to sleep? What time to go to sleep? No. Oh, no. And I was laughed at this. Because you, when we think about goals, we think about planning, you really have to make this you know full effort and doing so and that is things aren't just going to

01:01:48--> 01:02:07

manifest because, you know, you've thought about it, you wanted it but it's something that you have to actively plan for. And that's the easy part planning is the easy part. And then when it comes to executing that action afterwards, like like putting the app right beside that could be you know, your Facebook app, or whatever it is, it's going to become more natural and just much much easier for you think corporate job.

01:02:11--> 01:02:24

For him speak, I was just gonna tell because our fellow Canadian over here, I'm also Canadian, and he's also Canadian, we just let him sit there and he's not speaking. So you have to speak because it's not us Americans taking over means he's filming

01:02:25--> 01:02:28

a screen coming towards Yes, like, kind of transitions.

01:02:30--> 01:02:33

He's holding like, like this, across the screen.

01:02:36--> 01:02:36


01:02:37--> 01:03:12

I was thinking about, that everybody really kind of touched upon is how important it is for people to know themselves, and know their own habits and know what they do and know what you know what they're good at, that you gather that they liked, they can lean into that, to know that the faults that they have, so they can find ways and strategies to avoid it. And it you know, reminds me of the verse in the Quran. When that's a Kunal kalinina and his wife and Salim and facade, like Don't be like people forgot about forgot a lot. So a lot cause them to forget themselves. And it shows us that when you are not, you know, when you're far away from a loss kind of data, you forget yourself,

01:03:13--> 01:03:46

you lose track of yourself and to be closer to Allah subhanaw taala account of yourself and you have to think about yourself, what you like what you don't like, what are you doing your daily life and how you can improve yourself. And so everything that we're talking about really requires the person to think about themselves, and to really evaluate themselves and know what their habits are, and know what their inclinations are, you know, the scholars have a statement, I know they use it in different contexts sometimes, but manabi, fair enough suitable for the job that whoever knows themselves will know their Lord or has known their Lord. And so there's so much about knowing your

01:03:46--> 01:03:54

own self, really understanding yourself, your psychology, what you like, what you don't like, what you're able to do, what you're not able to do, in

01:03:56--> 01:04:04

order to help you improve. And so I just thought that's, that's so important. And knowing yourself is really a route for you to be able to know Allah subhanaw taala

01:04:08--> 01:04:45

that verse right there is the, you know, the foundation of the entire philosophy with mile of Cody. So if you told me to comment on that, I'll take three hours. So I'm not going to give any comment on that idea. But for him, you have to if you look into it was philosophy of Cody, like the ones are self actualization, he literally he read this verse, And from this verse, all of his poems about what he came from there, and that's one of his, you know, main main points of his philosophy in his poetry or around that. I think it gave us a small reminder about that. And one of the European videos, too, just to just say a few words about that as well, Sheikh Abdullah adoro, between his

01:04:45--> 01:04:52

face palms, and his shiny teeth, and this, you know, broad body a scene like this.

01:04:54--> 01:04:59

Sometimes he throws out gems, you know, and one of them I remember I was watching the video he mentioned

01:05:00--> 01:05:18

Something he said and I bet you he doesn't remember you know the funniest thing is on my when I was doing my miftah with my brother online and the hold on like reflections daily I mentioned so Sheikh Abdullah once said this and I mentioned that I mentioned the statement and my brothers like I said that he was so excited I'm not you

01:05:24--> 01:05:28

know you listen he got so excited that you know, I said general like you know, put me

01:05:30--> 01:05:32

on live is one of the last few nights

01:05:33--> 01:05:34

and so

01:05:35--> 01:05:38

he said so hello i'm quoting him in front of them he wants to

01:05:42--> 01:05:42

sorry that

01:05:44--> 01:06:17

he once said that the bridge between motivation and action is discipline which is so powerful man like you know, I'm not sure if you remember him saying that but like, you know, you're motivated and then you have the act then the bridge between that discipline and then I heard this from another person, which I always love quoting you, but I just don't remember who I heard it from there was a beautiful thing. They said if you want to develop discipline, because discipline isn't easy to develop, it's a difficult thing. I mean, my arm is hurting me from 6000 sharp I took two days ago you know, and basketball not like shots in basketball. So you know, it's the art of discipline like

01:06:17--> 01:06:56

you know, it's the idea is a pain of discipline is far less than the pain of regret like I would rather shoot 6000 shots and get hurt than miss the Buzzer Buzzer Buzzer beater or lose all day I mean that's 100% so that that scholar one said that if you want to develop discipline, a good way of doing that is always pray always follows and the first 10 minutes when they come in you know that's it like that's discipline right there unless you're praying in the masjid right when it comes in a Salah to the other person was asked what's the best of all these instead praying Salah at its earliest time so imagine you're killing your time in your mind you have 10 minutes that's all I have

01:06:56--> 01:07:06

versus I have the whole night to pray so right that That in itself will give you more discipline so just wanted to throw that out there as well as this Elijah was talking about plans and goals.

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

I mentioned discipline earlier and start might be a good way to you know add that

01:07:12--> 01:07:34

the pain of discipline is greater than the pain of regret very powerful Mashallah, it's not mine that someone said that Okay, okay. You know I'm gonna know that you know once you start quoting Shekhar Bella in order to do like once you start translating shift from the love of Guru his words his gems into order that you can write a a book on chef Abdullah doros gems noted

01:07:35--> 01:07:39

one man we want to see say for chef the speaker to do

01:07:42--> 01:07:44

no I mean no word

01:07:46--> 01:07:49

when you say kill you have to do this right it's it's kill and then

01:07:55--> 01:08:08

I realized you can get away with like ocho toto today and I Joe and just like you know just use the those those words and you can get away with it. But But mostly stuff is gonna make a whole book of your jobs and oh to do

01:08:18--> 01:08:32

with that until the time musty sob give us your top two posts on Milan habits and Charlotte's either that we can we can all inshallah how to benefit from so give us two things in sha Allah

01:08:33--> 01:08:43

in English please that we can all do in Charlottetown after after them a lot that are part of your posts on hold on that we can all learn from inshallah, to Allah you may decide it or do by by local EMF

01:08:49--> 01:08:50

oh man

01:08:52--> 01:08:54

started occurring

01:08:55--> 01:08:57

very quickly concluding Punjabi, how does that sound?

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


01:09:03--> 01:09:05

you can I'm gonna end up doing the show

01:09:07--> 01:09:08

you're killing us man.

01:09:10--> 01:09:11

All right.

01:09:13--> 01:09:24

Okay, there's no problem. I'll take it easy guys. So I'm not mad at him. So Sreekumar had to give me two because he knows that I'm not going to stop at one so he was generous with me and said to

01:09:26--> 01:10:00

so I'll say this you see, I think of Ramadan as the plane is taxi that the airport you see you have hundreds of employees preparing this plane to go right you have the people with the baggage Do you have the people in the boarding pass check in all that and when the plane takes off, you have these the pilot copilot you have more or less employees working while it's at flight than you do well it's on the ground. And so I think that no Milan you have all these ways to prepare yourself you know you have thought ah we have you know fasting Quran. You have all these things.

01:10:00--> 01:10:42

Things that prepare yourself to fuel yourself so you can you know, take this flight after Ramadan. As Bali mentions about this about in reverse to a bird he says in this famous poem existed as a confocal uncompelled ion Raja hoody carozza hajah hodaka Maharaja, and the last part he says, Who bought our Luda, Iran Vanessa ambala battery to a more of a harem Ernesto pelipper Shahada, he thought he talks about this human being as a bird, and he says, a bird. The ascension, the flight of the bird is proportionate to how many specks of dirt the bird has on its wing. So before the bird flies it, you know, it just, it just takes off its wings, it sticks the dust off its wings, and then

01:10:42--> 01:11:21

it can fly and then it can ascend. So hopefully this month of Ramadan was that for us, right? All the things bad habits, we could shake them off. And then now it's time for the flight. So yes, we don't have all those different acts. But that's not supposed to be with us. The entire year. Now it's time for flight and follow until the next one, one. And among the many things that we speak about number one, I don't know why this was so dear to me this summer one and it took off and I said to the people that take off this is the this is one thing we all have to try to do after Milan it's so easy, but the reward is so great. Once the person was sitting there and he said What did to

01:11:21--> 01:11:22

unlock it to honey?

01:11:23--> 01:11:25

I wish I could meet my brothers so awesome.

01:11:29--> 01:11:35

So how the ask them our listener one colossal lock? Are we not your brother's?

01:11:36--> 01:11:42

And then he said unto masabi Yama companions were one or two nobody What?

01:11:44--> 01:12:01

He says you might you my companions. My brothers are those who come after me. I really wish I could see them. So hon Allah if I'm gonna hold on Who said that? You know, you could take everything away from me. But that one statement of the problem telling me Latin sentiment

01:12:03--> 01:12:33

or in other holography, this is all my own work. Don't forget me in the US, oh, my brother, and he called me his brother the fact that he called me his brother is so dear to me. It's more dear to me anything in this world, whatever it contains, and the person called us his brothers even though we don't deserve this, but he said I wish I could see my brothers. He said no, my brothers are those who come after me. And I wish I could see them but you know what, what other fella to whom I'll hold I'll be waiting for them on my pond. And the Sahaba asked rasulillah salam

01:12:34--> 01:12:41

what are the for now our terraform know the Hadees Are you gonna recognize these people like you have never seen them? So are you gonna recognize them?

01:12:43--> 01:12:46

What what characteristic will be the feature that you'll recognize them through?

01:12:48--> 01:12:52

And you know if he said through the white turbans hollows, you know, I'm all set.

01:12:53--> 01:13:26

I got it down. Pretend and see that. He didn't say jobs he did not say turbans mean already like I've already thought about my control up my conversation with the puffs of money. You know, I have a feeling when he ends up seeing us music. He's like, What's up with this turban? You know, why do you have it seven times on your head? And honestly, honestly, like, I thought that's what you did, you know, and that's not I wasn't doing it because I wanted to become, you know, 1000 styled or that was that was in no way. I mean, I got it was worse that I had it but I just I was doing it because I thought maybe he was like I only tried it three times there are only two you have you have it all

01:13:26--> 01:13:45

wrong. But all we could do is make the effort inshallah he would he would appreciate our effort in shuttle, you just give us the hug and see what good job you tried. But no, it's not through our turbans through a clothing through all these different things he's gonna recognize us through, he says, I'll recognize you now I will recognize you 30 doing it 130 we'll do

01:13:47--> 01:14:32

a recall. He says I will recognize you, you will come to me with bright faces, and bright hands and feet on the account of the traces of wudu ablution. This mark, nobody else will have had a lot to it. Just how will we will do is not just an act that we do to just praise Allah. But think about every time you do will do this is going to be my recognition. The person will recognize me through my wudu through my traces of water on my face on my hands on my feet. This is how the person will recognize and if I don't have this, that How will he recognize me that's what the problem is another hobby is Minnesota I mean coming to LA to find a person who could you know make his perfect his will

01:14:32--> 01:14:59

then he should do it. She should do it. And when the person was asked about the you know when he was he said, Look, I mean labial hotwire well for a widow judge Should I tell you about something that can wipe away your sins how many times you hurt someone. This will wipe away your sins. Let's look at the revenue since but this is not this is not specific to a mobile there's so many deeds we can do after a mobile that will give us the same reward of wiping away or since and this will be a means of elevation in general.

01:15:00--> 01:15:42

This Yes No please tell us he's his bow one will do I will Macari is despite difficult circumstances still doing. That's the first thing Subhanallah you know if all of us can plan our entire day, staying on whoodle it will make us It will make our worship easier for us will make us remember Allah easier, we won't have to hesitate for praying Salah every time we we will also plan our diet better because we won't eat and drink things that will you know, make us I literally last year my father told me this My dad is you know he's tall all of us will see him one day. But he says things that are so powerful for me says that I'm going to stay on auto one that when he said that, to me,

01:15:42--> 01:16:18

the first thing that left my daily consumption was coffee, I used to drink five cups of coffee every day because it would break my model so much to do more. And now when I travel with youngsters throughout the country, like every time you stop to pray that all you have to do. Just the fact that you can do will do and stay on will do this. Don't think of it as some just a normal act of worship. Rather, this is a means of your sins, forgiving, forgiving, this is a means of your elevation and paradise. And this is a means of you being recognized by the prophets, Allah, this Bible will do it with Macquarie. I mean, if we could just take this inshallah and stay on Moodle throughout the day,

01:16:18--> 01:16:53

everything are the idea, the thought of sins will also leave our body. And I thought about this because the first five slots are revealed in the Quran, or on the four of the five on the last two juices. And in the desert. Allah says with the abaca fire. That's one principle from that. And I thought about this because why is the last for the first first five sort of adrenal gland four of the five and the last two, just because and that's the last sort of reading tarawih No, Milan, and to me was that, yes, you know, that was the beginning of the prophets journey. Ramadan is is not an end, but it's a

01:17:00--> 01:17:30

symbol that comes at the beginning. Revelation was sort of alum and from there I think the second principle, which is so easy brothers and sisters, it's like, it's not that difficult to do. And that is both places. There's a lot mentioned the first two sisters stories in the Quran is one of those people of the the, the garden is Hubba Jana, and the second is of Yunus, Ali Salaam, and both places he mentioned that word was said to him, that's B into the principal from pseudoscalar mitake is just take out a few minutes a day. The problem is

01:17:32--> 01:17:32


01:17:33--> 01:18:11

should I not tell you something? Am I studying a yarmulke? Yo, Mr. over an Amazon? Should I tell you something that every single day not only in Oman, not only to Qatar with all those math and you know the equation on little quarter, every minute every second? Should I not tell you something that you could do every single day that will give you the reward of the entire mountain or what? And they said well, can you better stop the run? Amala conda, Yeoman, Mr. Hamelin? How's it possible that we can do the deeds of the equalled Mount Hood every single day none none of them in Gallico are just you're also the law. We are weaker than that remote incapable. How do you think the plan is so he

01:18:12--> 01:18:53

said he also mentioned the Saudis. And, and he said so by a woman who was in one coma, and he said, couldn't have come to solve your own problems and all of you can do it. This goes about that idea of now there's small things that are so powerful that you can still do that won't take too much of your time. Okay, for that example, so how is it possible to just say la ilaha illa La, La ilaha illa Allah, Allah, wa Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, just three things lie below give you more rewarding God Subhana Allah give you more of what Allah will give you more we will just take about 510 minutes a day in your day. Maybe when you get in the car to go to work, or right after work

01:18:53--> 01:19:20

right during lunch break. It's just a few extra minutes that you put in that mix that separates the great ones from the average ones just a few extra minutes is not three hours or five hours it's just that one hour before the game that you know stuff or empty or someone's shooting around that makes them better it's not like they're spending 50 more hours this is a little bit more time a little bit more and just takes a few minutes. your site this problem said you get the reward or hurt every single day. So these are the two things I will leave on leave you with

01:19:21--> 01:19:40

that if we could the malai cards are not just coming a little further in the rely Himalaya to fulfill the mission Allah decree. They're not just looking for people worshipping Allah, but they're looking for people doing Vicar of Allah every single moment and when faith that what you're doing oh man guess what Allah when they see people and other

01:19:41--> 01:19:59

other other angels come down. There's that protect here's the thing that you're looking for is that person has their brother or their sister. So it's not these are not specific for a Milan stay in a state of Voodoo throughout the year. Take out a few minutes every single day do this, because Allah mentioned this and sort of column the first principles from from our data and the second principles

01:20:00--> 01:20:14

For a column, I was given this much time I think already took more time than that. But if we have more time at some other time, we'll talk about the other principals for the schools. But these two I think, if we can, there's so simple the problem even gives her these various common law home common unfortunate

01:20:15--> 01:20:50

that there are people who'll be reclining under turbans, you know as pillows and the other side of the turban over their bodies, and the nice comfortable in agency turbans, but nice comfortable blankets and mattresses, there'll be remnant of us patola and then remembering a lot of these comfortable pillows and mattresses that will lead them to entrance vagina, you don't have to be like in a difficult place you could be doing on a mattress. And finally, I will say this, people always say, you know, do I have to be attentive, you know, I tried to do the good I tried to go stop for lunch. This is a power law, but in my heart is not with my tongue, and Subhanallah it's a good

01:20:50--> 01:21:23

point. And we should try to make our heart attentive as well. But don't become despondent and hopeless. One great scholarship, a separator of law said once that actually even if your heart is not with your tongue when you're doing Vicar, you should do suka to Allah subhanaw taala that at least one limb of your body is remembering him so it's fine you know a time will come and your heart will be there as well. But the fact that your tongue was given the ability to remember a lot you should actually thank Allah for that just continue doing these two things you know as my takeaway from the normal one to do it every single day stay in the state of loop at all times and try to

01:21:23--> 01:22:01

remember Allah the days and nights taking our time of single day and follow Him will be a means of Ascension throughout the year of work alone item of the song Hello reward you and what I'd like to do on cello tie just to sort of in conclusion shall law is every one you know just sort of give your last 30 seconds one minute Max and sell outside just you know quick sort of takeaway inshallah, if you have one. And I will start in shallow to actually just open floor inshallah between doctor just name chef, Chef bohem sister Nigel, inshallah. Any last last word of advice inshallah, as we wrap it up,

01:22:02--> 01:22:03

I think we think

01:22:06--> 01:22:08

that's what happened, my game is fine. So I'm just leave it open for us.

01:22:11--> 01:22:44

I'm just gonna play off of the last thing that chef, sorry, moved out of the room and mentioned, you know, at the end of the series of verses about Ramadan and fasting, Allah Subhana, Allah says, Allah come to school one, right, so as we end the month, we have to be thankful. Even you know, if you felt like you did, all of your gunnery did very little. Any moment that you had, where you pray to Allah at any moment, or you made to any moment where you gave for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, any moment where you were able to turn to Allah, you were only able to do that, because a lot wanted you to do it. And so to be thankful for the opportunity to worship Allah subhanaw taala is something

01:22:44--> 01:22:48

that should fill our hearts at the end of Ramadan as we look back escalus

01:22:49--> 01:22:54

past the last panel data to make us all thankful to be able to worship him. I mean,

01:22:58--> 01:23:34

I think for me, the thing that stands out the most is that there are so many simple deeds that we can do that have such a big impact. And that's, I think, from Allah's mercy, that it almost levels out the playing field, some of us are more motivated than others, some of us are stronger than others. And so to have simple, doesn't have simple uscar that can elevate us to such high degrees. To me, that's from the mercy of Allah and something that we can all take advantage of. You know, that it's super easy for us, regardless of who we are, and something that we can just integrate into our day to day, life very easily. handler

01:23:40--> 01:23:41

Dr. Seuss name, Chef Abdullah, Chef,

01:23:43--> 01:24:19

I was muted. But what most other friend was saying in terms of a little one easy way to get started is actually just by doing a book before you go to sleep. And this is something a friend will very randomly she had mentioned. Or you know, by the way, you know, 1015 years ago, when you go to sleep if you have to the angels are spending all night making dark be praying for you. And I remember when she told it to me in passing a call who could give up on this opportunity, you could literally go to sleep and someone else doing the work for you is as most pathetic for forgiveness. So don't undermine that. And really, if you make it a habit, then it's naturally become a habit. In the

01:24:19--> 01:24:46

daytime. You always want to have your own sort of small sort of just that night before you go to sleep. Always go go to sleep with a little and think about that as you're doing. I know sometimes it's so hard you're like you got into I'm so comfortable. I really don't feel like getting up a picture in your mind that like hey, I'm about to sleep the next 678 hours. I might as well just have someone you know literally spend all night making drop for me. It's a free pass. It's so easy and it's a win win situation. So start off small and that's that's somewhere I'd recommend.

01:24:48--> 01:25:00

Yeah, I'd say support a lot. You know, she mentioned at the very end just welcomed the uncomfortable moments, uncomfortable moments. As you know, some say get comfortable with being uncomfortable because in order to start a new habit, it's gonna

01:25:00--> 01:25:19

be uncomfortable in the beginning it's going to be stressful. But you know look at the light at the end of the tunnel and that's what we talked about with discipline and being consistent that's what I love the heartbeat that you mentioned because he mentioned consistency that he encourages you and says just a little bit so reflect to connect and reflect on yourself and use those reflections in order to be consistent to connect to a last countdown

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

I already spoke enough but I'll have to say your amakhala show Homer

01:25:27--> 01:25:31
