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

y sobre la ilaha illallah wa,

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

Allah,

00:00:44--> 00:00:44

Allah,

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

Mohammed Abu

00:00:52--> 00:00:53

Salah

00:00:57--> 00:00:58

named

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

Bali

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

while he was

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

a monk in Hong Kong

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

also. So

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

now we will see

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

how

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

to see more, for

00:01:31--> 00:01:31

example,

00:01:40--> 00:01:40

what's up

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

Salida

00:02:00--> 00:02:14

We begin by praising the last time points out and thanking Him and glorifying him and declaring this perfection in our own imperfections, we bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for a loss.

00:02:16--> 00:03:00

And we bear witness that will come in subtle, along with some of his final messenger, satisfy a loss of what's out as a mercy to all of the world as a guide for mankind as an example for us to follow. And so we asked the last time to send his peace and blessings upon him and his family, his companions, and those that follow until the day of judgment. And we asked the last cabin without it to make us amongst them among the brothers and sisters. As you all know, and shout out, probably next week, a week from today, you might be hearing the first football overall blog itself. And I think, you know, the topic, the theme of the blog is salad, a company that will guide me throughout

00:03:00--> 00:03:42

the massage for a month and events, not six months, like the Sahaba. But at least for a month, people start to get excited about it, we start to hear you know, these programs about them a lot, we start to get ourselves prepared for the physical robot, we get ourselves hopefully spiritually prepared with knowledge and things of that sort. But in reality, it all comes down to your practice, at the end of the day, it all comes down to your exercise, Ramadan is as practical as it gets. And so many lectures, as you might hear about Milan, as as much philosophy, as you might know about Milan, as many ideas as you might know, as you might know about a person that lives in a third world

00:03:42--> 00:04:11

country that's never heard any of these lectures, but knows that when it's time to get serious, it's time to go to the Muslims, it's time to read more and more, and to avoid everything that's naturally displeasing to Allah. And that makes me uncomfortable, this Leon might be better than your car and my car, just because he's practicing it. It's simple. At the end of the day, it's complex, but it's simple. Understanding its beauties, and its wisdom is important. But at the end of the day,

00:04:14--> 00:04:14

blah,

00:04:20--> 00:04:20

blah, blah with

00:04:24--> 00:04:57

all the decisions that came before. Now, the problem that we usually have is that we usually look at what comes first and what comes last and we forget what comes in between. Usually this means if I pass them along, all of my sins are forgiven, simple as that. But we forget the two words that come in between which are the seven you have to pass them also with each other out, you don't just pass them along and all of your sins are forgiven, because there will be some people upon whom Ramadan comes that are not forgiven for their sins and What a loser that person would be. As

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

was was saying again,

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

Honey, honey.

00:05:03--> 00:05:06

Love. Why are you saying I mean, as we know to believe it

00:05:07--> 00:05:10

was making against three people.

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

And in one day, why

00:05:14--> 00:05:22

is nose in the ground meaning he's humiliated? What a humiliated person he is a wonder eration cobble hustle.

00:05:23--> 00:06:05

He has lost the one upon one cane and left and he was not forgiven. For instance, how could we in this month with this opportunity not be forgiven by the lost count of what's out? If this is not the time that you're going to be forgiven? If this is not the time, you're going to repeat yourself that when will you ever redeem yourself at the bottom, when we've won the sale, or locked up is not the time that you finally kick your bad habits, that you finally do away with the things that you're not supposed to be doing that when will you do those things, in fact, the most unpleasant time of the year, you're not able to do that. And I wanted to talk briefly, first and foremost about these two

00:06:05--> 00:06:52

concepts as well as as it relates to trauma, because it's actually very special event, as we know, it's fake its belief. But Ramadan is one of those very rare apps that engages each and every single aspect of your email, it engages An email will build up in a way that no other option could be loved more than anything else, because as the last countdown, puts it up all of the options of the sum of alcohol for him, except for CL suffering is gospel of soul body when fasting is for me and I reward according fasting is mine, everything else is his, that doesn't mean that your salad doesn't count your saw is more important than your past. That doesn't mean you don't have to give

00:06:53--> 00:07:20

them a bonus, right? But you think about it. When it comes to any other action. There is some public element to it, you're a slot, you're here, people see you in slot, there's some form of a public element, here's a cow, at the very least the person you get here, as a doctor knows that you're doing your job, your house, millions of people will see you doing house, your group will see you in touch, people will know that you went to hide you come back, people will start to call you but

00:07:22--> 00:07:51

there is a public element to every other aspects of your faith. But although there is a public elements here, there has to be some level of loss, there has to be some level of sincerity, because who knows, you know, maybe whenever you're not in front of people you're eating, you're drinking. So that which will restrain you from doing those things requires a different sort of excellence requires a level of sincerity and that's why I lost

00:07:52--> 00:08:18

this one is mine. And I will reward accordingly. This is between me and my service. So you can gauge the amount of the love. You engage as Amanda malaita faith in the angels in a way that you would not engage with other options. Why because in this month, you are watching yourself, making sure that the deeds that are being written down are the beats that you want to be presented. So

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

there is no point as a prophet

00:08:23--> 00:08:31

who has lost contact or has no need for a person to abandon his food and his drink. If he does not abandon lying and

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

you know bonus or false false false testimony

00:08:37--> 00:08:53

does not need you're abandoning the food and drink you're just dying. The point is by restraining yourself from those halau things you learn to restrain yourself from the out things at the same time. So you're learning to engage

00:08:54--> 00:09:06

more than anything so if we look at sort of love or the lies or just mentions the body on the second page of sort of allows us to references to a body in the first one. What

00:09:09--> 00:09:20

is his body marine is someone who's tied to someone who's who's tied to such a close friend that needs it you would refer to as a buddy

00:09:22--> 00:09:43

of mine. They were being tortured in the early days they were called a funny name. They were literally tied up and beaten together. So I was describing your buddy as saying how the amount of the IP your angel has saved us this is what I have to present this is what he's done. And alas those are response LPs

00:09:46--> 00:09:55

last kind of title says go into Hellfire every disbelieving arrogance. That's a few layers of lost count Allah says later

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

peace

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

He said, Oh my Lord, I did not lead him astray. And who is nobody here? It's not the angel. It's a bomb.

00:10:08--> 00:10:37

It's a bomb. The same word is used to describe opposite entities. If you're an angel of St. Paul, and a normal dog, we have an opportunity because we know as possible along with some semblance of the sale, the sale feet are locked up. So now it's you hear enough about those angels to see what they are writing, and what they're presenting to a loss. You're aware, you're paying attention. And then we know that this month as a non

00:10:39--> 00:10:45

belief in the books of the last hour, and authentic narration, we know that the messenger will last.

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

Every single scripture was revealed that

00:10:49--> 00:10:54

every one of them was revealed in them a lot. And in particular, the first way

00:10:55--> 00:10:58

to describe this last month of Ramadan shout

00:11:01--> 00:11:04

out, this is the month that was revealed.

00:11:06--> 00:11:19

This is the month of the app, this is the month that you engage support app, this is a month that you read the ad in a way that you would not read it throughout the year. Now whether that is a salary and a lot of taking it from once a day, twice a day, or

00:11:21--> 00:12:05

taking it from seven times a month to 14 times a month, or whether it is the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, when tiberian Sun comes to him, and instead of reviewing it with him once to review it with him twice. This is the month that you acquaint yourself with the whole app, this is the month of the self study, the person does not complete the recitation of that is a sign of his hypocrisy. This is when you're listening to the core and being recited in such a way. When you have your own resume. This is shuffled out. So you're engaging Kitagawa and you're engaging all the good stuff, because they were all revealed a lot. And the roots of the belief in the messengers a lot. How would

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

we know how to fast had it not been for a while? So a lot of it was set up? Aren't we trying to look at the sickness of the province?

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

How did the province sizing and breaking stuff? How did he?

00:12:19--> 00:12:27

How did he do this? What happens during normal? What we try to actually learn to walk in the footsteps of the Messenger of

00:12:28--> 00:12:40

Allah? What was the ground that he made whenever he broke his house? What was this what was that we look at his life and we tried to copy it. We tried to follow the follow in his footsteps. And in fact, we engage all

00:12:41--> 00:12:58

all the messengers, because as the mother in law said, there was not a single messenger a lot except that Allah mandated honestly, except that he had a regimen of fasting. So we're following in the footsteps of all of the messengers. And then we have been

00:13:00--> 00:13:01

believing in the hereafter.

00:13:02--> 00:13:25

And think about this for a moment. When we know from the messenger sallallahu wasallam. The person is two pleasures. One when he breaks the stops, now sipping wine never tasted so good grades and stuff. And he feels that sense of relief. But the real pleasure, the real relief is when you meet a lot of what's out.

00:13:26--> 00:14:07

That's the real relief, when a loss of habitat will remove his face from the Hellfire a distance of the journey of seven years. Because He fasted that day for the sake of a loss of that that's the true relief. you're engaging in alcohol because you want the greater relief on appeal. So you put yourself through that little hardship because he wants to be a loss and be relieved of your hardships. Now, as we know we believe in Divine Decree. How do we engage belief in Divine Decree, labor to cover more than anything else. In this month, there is a night of love. Sometimes Allah will decree all of the things to come for the next year, when it will be transferred

00:14:08--> 00:14:25

to the records of the angels, all of your deeds, all of your actions, whether or not you will even go to heights, everything your risk decreed on that night. So don't you want to be worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala on the night when that is decrease in the next year. Of course.

00:14:27--> 00:14:35

He knows what he's up when he says to seek the reward. And isn't that the true meaning of good the bad equals the

00:14:39--> 00:14:45

very early fasting was prescribed the Bible Atlas for thrive on those who came before you so that you could gain a sense of

00:14:47--> 00:14:55

you could learn how to learn to be conscious of a loss and severe them as a result of that consciousness

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

describes a person walking on a path

00:15:00--> 00:15:17

Lauren's making sure that he's holding himself, making sure that he doesn't get hurt. And if he does get hurt, what does he do? He comes right back, he comes right back, he doesn't just continue to walk and keep getting poked. No, he comes back, seeking the reward, holding himself

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

what Tupac has

00:15:23--> 00:15:37

abandoned in the small ones and the large one because that is not one that's true top one was not. So follow the show, you know, now you're walking on a land that is full of thorns, making sure that you're not stepping on any of those spikes. Now, the longer salvia on,

00:15:40--> 00:16:07

don't, don't do not be middle, the smallest action, the smallest sin, because fairly knock things are made of covers. This is a type of tough one. You watch every single thing that you do come from galaxy, watch those things. Watch those bad beats, and you hold yourself. You put yourself back into order, because this is a time of redemption. And how do you see that this month, you look at the definition of tough,

00:16:13--> 00:16:25

be rushed to the forgiveness of your Lord and a paradise that is as vast as the heavens and earth promise for those who are conscious and fearful of Allah subhanaw taala. Who are they and the

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

law of the law,

00:16:30--> 00:16:43

those who give in both hardship and ease. They're giving, they understand a loss habitat is normally provides. And I know normally, when you see someone standing up to fundraise, you say

00:16:45--> 00:17:12

we just had one yesterday, but your attitude should be attempted a lot. This is more real estates in Jamaica, this is a greater chance to increase my stock with a loss. You restrain yourself from greed, you restrain yourself from stinkiness and you give even though you might be in a hard situation, you give according to whatever your circumstances are. And isn't that the spirit of Allah the Prophet was

00:17:15--> 00:17:49

buried in the month of Ramadan more generous than the blowing week in discriminants, like a tornado or a hurricane coming through. everywhere around the province my son was experiencing his father. He always gave silicone in Ramallah it was even to a greater extent when we need a lady and the ones who swallow their anger. And what is the proper size of them. Tell us in Ramadan, if someone comes to you, and starts to argue with you or fight with you are smart speakers, or smart students to speak in an ignorant way with any song let's say

00:17:51--> 00:18:15

that the cell is seeking the reward of the person who's insulting me. I'm seeking reward with the one who's angry at me. So I swallow my anger and I say Oh, a lot. Of course on a private level, I say Oh, a lot. I sprained my ankle from this person, although I was fully justified and responding. So restrain your anchor for me. But have you not noticed? Not only that, but they pardoned people.

00:18:16--> 00:18:19

They read they reconnect those bonds that were broken.

00:18:21--> 00:18:40

What benefit would it be, if you found this entire month, and you read the entire month, and you did everything right? But then a loss of animals out of rejects everything. Because of a grace between you and another brother, there could be two people right now that try to avoid each other after Salah

00:18:42--> 00:18:46

informed us that whenever the deeds are presented to a loss of data, and the narration

00:18:48--> 00:18:53

or law looks at the deeds of two people that are correlate and says lol we'll

00:18:55--> 00:19:13

leave these two until they fix what's between them. I don't even want to see their games. What's the benefit there? You pardoned people, even though you know that that person was wrong? You go to that person and you say, forgive me. Forgive me. I'm sorry. Let's be brothers. Sisters.

00:19:14--> 00:19:20

I forgive you forgive me. You pardon people. Why? Because of the

00:19:21--> 00:19:28

loss of a loved one. So specifically in Ramadan. What was his favorite job and the last night allows him

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

to help with Africa.

00:19:33--> 00:19:44

Oh ally, you are one who loves to party. You are the partner The one who loves to party so pardon me, forgive me. So you want a lots of forgiveness so you forgive other people.

00:19:45--> 00:19:47

Milan, II none.

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

You fastball a lot with email.

00:19:55--> 00:19:56

Then you can expect that

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

it will forgive all of your previous sentences.

00:20:00--> 00:20:30

We ask a lot of departments for our shortcomings, we ask the loss of data to overlook our mistakes, we ask Allah to allow us to live to see them a lot. And so now's the benefit. And so allow us to be forgiven this whole month. And we asked the last hand without and not to make this amongst those from the best of the angels. All law is of the best of mankind, to outcomes, but rather, we asked a lot of parents out to elevate us to the status of the level of

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

companionship.

00:20:34--> 00:20:37

In the highest level, paradise alumni,

00:20:48--> 00:20:49

alumni

00:20:56--> 00:21:02

like to ask everyone to move forward, as close as possible. Please move forward and make space for those coming in late.

00:21:12--> 00:21:30

Your brothers and sisters, I want to conclude with connecting taqwa with something that allows kind of what Allah has connected with what we're supposed to be gaining through this month of Ramadan more than anything else, when the loss of kind of what to Allah says Yeah.

00:21:32--> 00:21:34

Wow, what who saw that?

00:21:35--> 00:21:42

Oh, you who believe fear of law, and be with those who are crucial to us.

00:21:43--> 00:22:20

You know, many times, when we're in our vulnerable states, we make promises to Allah. Whenever we find ourselves financially distraught, we make a promise to Allah. We say, oh, if you give me money, if you allow me to get over this financial hurdle, I promise you, they'll start getting more charity, I promise you, I'll start going to the masjid more often, oh, a lot. If you let me get into the school, I promise you, they'll start doing this, I'll start doing that all a lot. If you just get me out of this situation, I promise you that I'll never go back to that sin. Again, we make a lot of promises where we're vulnerable, even people that are wishing he will fall, disbelievers will

00:22:20--> 00:22:26

make promises to a loss out of the data, whenever they are in their moments of vulnerability where he

00:22:30--> 00:23:12

tells us that whenever there being envelope by the waves in the ocean, on a dark night, imagine a person drowning. Even though he's a Catholic, he's a disbeliever, he will call upon a law sincerely made promises to a lot of you get me out of the situation. If you saved me, I promise you, I'll be a better person. I promise you all do this. But once Allah subhanho wa Taala rescues them, and brings them to short they completely forget, they completely forget. And let's face it. Many times we do that too. If you ever look on an airplane, whenever the turbulence starts to get really bad, everyone starts to close their eyes, and they go out in their own way. And then as soon as the

00:23:12--> 00:23:30

turbulence stops, they become their cell phones, they call everyone that they know they say they talk about how crazy their experience was. But how many people will actually follow up on that there are that they were making at that moment. It's a form of job. And the point is, is that usually when we're in vulnerability, we are it's easy to make.

00:23:31--> 00:24:14

It's easy to ask a lot of things, it's easy to say oh, I promise you this. And I promise you that how many of us are struggling with a sin and a loss of kind of out of state due from a near death experience. A loss kind of data saved you from something huge whether or not you ascribe to him, Allah saved you from something. And then you said, Oh, this is the last time I'm never going to do this synagogue. I'm never going to do this synagogue. But we're forgetting something very important. The point is not just to make promises to us, either when you're vulnerable, as a matter of law, being truthful that a lot is fulfilling those promises when you're in that situation that allow no

00:24:14--> 00:24:17

you in your adversity could not allow for the target to

00:24:18--> 00:24:59

be with a lot in good times a level No, you're vulnerable times a level answer that you're vulnerable. But we have to learn to be truthful with a lot when we say we want to be forgiven by a loss of this formula. When we say we want this to be the best come along with our lives. When we say oh, I'm ready to change. I'm ready to change. I promise you I'm going to change my life Hold up. How serious are we when we make those claims? How many teenagers make those claims when they hit a really hard situation? How many people struggling with the economy make those make those claims make those promises whenever they're struggling with their job situation. People always

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

make promises when they're vulnerable.

00:25:03--> 00:25:04

But there are people

00:25:09--> 00:25:11

there are people that are truthful with a loss

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

with the promises that they made

00:25:16--> 00:25:55

and I want you to really think that all on your time for redemption, but a lot your time for forgiveness, Ramadan, your time to really change your life. How disgusting will it be if all along comes and goes and you still have a sense a penny of our money? How disgusting will it be this robot comes and goes and you're still insisting on the same sin. How disgusting with a PETA from along comes and goes and you have not abandoned your relationship and you have not abandoned your drugs and you have not abandoned your your your ill behavior your bad behavior towards your family members. How disgusting with a B is what a waste it will be a form of on comes and goes and you

00:25:55--> 00:26:08

don't change those things about yourself. And that's where the true self with a lot. The truthfulness with a lot really silence because as the other good fight Rahim Allah said

00:26:11--> 00:26:17

anyone can do good deeds, good deeds, anyone can do good deeds. Anyone can read more. Anyone can.

00:26:19--> 00:26:41

Anyone can do more volunteer work, anyone can give more charity. Anyone can do good deeds. There are atheists that do more volunteer work than Muslims. There are atheists that like to praise I like to do meditation and yoga. There are atheists that do these things. Anyone can do that about a sinner and a righteous person what we are talking about.

00:26:42--> 00:26:45

But no one can abandon sins unless he's truthful, if

00:26:47--> 00:27:07

that's what you really know, your series will unlock when you're able to get rid of the poisons in your life when you're able to get rid of the one because the diseases that stop you from progressing in your relationship with a boss, or a lot, I'm willing to hold myself, I'm willing to restrain myself, I'm willing to practice the out.

00:27:08--> 00:27:26

cr as the means restraints, the linguistic meaning of CR is restraints on holding myself through or alone. that's been true for the last hour or so. So there's a direct connection to your brothers and sisters. Between a tough one was a couple

00:27:27--> 00:27:45

of slides that I want to leave you all with one. Story. One, authentic narration, some Jama narrative. novalja is a very beautiful, beautiful narration. And I've mentioned it two times in the last month. So if you've heard it before, forgive me without

00:27:47--> 00:28:04

reminding each other because we reminder benefits of illegal were out in Norway. The law alongside article says that I have a dream one night, and I was standing at the gates of Geneva. And next to me were to mount

00:28:05--> 00:28:13

su Sahaba. Both passed away. They both became Muslim on the same day. Both of these men came

00:28:15--> 00:28:28

the same day. One of them died a year before the other as I said he's he died as a martyr. The other one live for exactly a year after he died in normal death. He died in normal death.

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

So we're standing near these two Sahaba Why not?

00:28:34--> 00:28:39

And then the caller calls, whose agenda, the one who did not die.

00:28:40--> 00:28:43

And who died the year after the other one we called him to paradise.

00:28:44--> 00:29:21

Then the other one was called to turn also they both entered into paradise. And I saw myself standing in front of the gates of Paradise and I still have not answered until I was told go back because it's not your time yet. It's a good dream for him because that means he's agenda that we can use for national agenda that sub province paradise. So he said the next day when the sun was sacred. My son used to ask us a holiday we used to say which you saw a good dream last night. used to always ask them share your good dreams. So I said I had a strange dream. And he told him this dream.

00:29:22--> 00:29:24

And the Sahaba were shocked. And

00:29:26--> 00:29:43

then at the time what do you shop for the city also, the guy who wants to jump in first was not as good as the other one and the other guy said he saw how wrong you were to jump in first. And the prophet SAW Selim listen to his answer. He says, He said However,

00:29:47--> 00:29:50

this person lived a year longer than this person said yes.

00:29:53--> 00:29:58

And he caught another robot and He fasted and created it. The right

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

They said yes. And

00:30:06--> 00:30:20

so the distance between them is greater than the distance between the heavens and the earth. Now, every time I mentioned this narration put together as authentic narration some of the method someone comes up to me afterwards and says that I insulted the show by that I didn't insult the show. It

00:30:22--> 00:30:42

was so close I sort of did not insult the show. Or somebody was telling us this month of Ramadan is really really really bad discussion. It's not much of a mercy from a lot. It's not just the first 10 days of university the second Sundays for goodness the third Sundays the protection from health I actually got married this week. There's nothing there. He's

00:30:43--> 00:31:06

equally yoked what a lot. A lot when I'm not every day hold on his mercy forgiveness and being protected free from Hellfire every day allows him to write some people, the first second third day maybe the 27th, maybe the 21st. Maybe the 18th 17th everyday allows you to write on Google people who he decided to free from hellfire. Because of that they have learned a lot

00:31:07--> 00:31:20

about whether the mercy of a loss of habitat and we can't take for granted that we will live to see it all along. So we asked last cottonwoods out and shot love with full sincerity a lot.

00:31:21--> 00:31:22

A lot.

00:31:23--> 00:31:24

A lot.

00:31:26--> 00:31:26

A lot, a

00:31:28--> 00:31:29

lot, why not what else

00:31:35--> 00:31:35

cost me

00:31:40--> 00:31:40

a lot of money.

00:31:48--> 00:31:50

As well as you know the reality of

00:31:54--> 00:31:55

Slovakia,

00:32:01--> 00:32:02

Slovakia, Russia,

00:32:04--> 00:32:05

the Burma,

00:32:07--> 00:32:12

Iraq to start with this model, what the service is out

00:32:14--> 00:32:14

of the

00:32:25--> 00:32:25

way

00:32:27--> 00:32:28

to tell you as the

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

young man

00:32:46--> 00:33:30

Tamati pacella, one GB RAM comes to him. And instead of reviewing it with him once to be around, reviews it with him twice. This is the month to to acquaint yourself with the whole app, this is the month of the son of a person does not complete the recitation of that as a sign of his accuracy. This is when you're listening to the automatic beat your sight and sound away. When you have your own resume. This is shuffled out. So you're engaging Kitab law and you're engaging all the goodwill because they were all revealed to him a lot. And even the roots of the belief in the messengers a lot. How would we know how to fast had it not been for a while so a lot of it was set up? Aren't we

00:33:30--> 00:33:32

trying to look at the symbolism of the prophets

00:33:33--> 00:33:46

throughout the month? While How did the Prophet sighs embrace us? How he does? How did he do his follow up? What happens during normal? We try to actually learn to walk in the footsteps of the Messenger of

00:33:48--> 00:34:00

Allah, what was the drought that he made whenever he broke his spouse? What was this what was that we look at his life and we tried to copy ads. We tried to follow the follow in his footsteps. And in fact, we engaged all

00:34:01--> 00:34:03

all the messengers, because as he

00:34:04--> 00:34:18

said, there was not a single messenger of a lot except that Allah mandated on him, except that he had a regimen of fasting. So we're following in the footsteps of all of the messengers. And then we have been

00:34:19--> 00:34:21

believing in the hereafter.

00:34:22--> 00:34:44

And think about this for a moment when we know from the messenger so a lot of doctors a fascinating person is two pleasures. One when he breaks and starts, now sipping wine never tasted so good, great stuff. And he feels that sense of relief. But the real pleasure. The real relief is when you meet a loss.

00:34:46--> 00:34:56

That's the real relief when a loss of habitat will remove his face from the Hellfire a distance of the journey of seven years because He fasted that day for the sake of a loss.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

That's the true relief. you're engaged.

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

And after because we want the greater relief on the appeal. So you put yourself in that little hardship because he wants to be a loss and be relieved of your hardship stuff and

00:35:11--> 00:35:44

believe in Divine Decree, how do we engage belief in Divine Decree labor to cover more than anything else. In this month, there is a nice, a lot of supplements out it will be great all of the things to come for the next year, when it will be transferred from schools to the records of the angels, all of your deeds, all of your actions, whether or not you will even go to heights, everything your risk decreed on that night. So don't you want to be worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala on the night, well, that is decrease in the next year. Of course.

00:35:46--> 00:35:54

He knows what he's up when he saw is to seek the reward. And isn't that the true meaning of taqwa good, the guy

00:35:57--> 00:35:57

who

00:35:59--> 00:36:05

barely fasting was prescribed the Bible as was prescribed by those who came before you so that you could gain a sense of

00:36:07--> 00:36:08

you could learn.

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

Learn to be conscious of a loss of habitat and severe them as a result of that consciousness. A lot of times we describe a person walking on a path of thorns, making sure that he's holding himself, making sure that he doesn't get hurt. And if he does get hurt, what does he do? He comes right back. He comes right back. He doesn't just continue to walk and keep getting poked, no becomes seeking the reward. holding yourself

00:36:42--> 00:36:56

abandoning the small ones and the large one because that is not one that's true top one was not to follow, the show can go now you're walking on a land that is full of thorns, making sure that you're not stepping on any of those spikes. Now

00:36:59--> 00:37:24

don't don't do not be middle the smallest action the smallest sin because fairly Nazis are made of covers. This is a tough one. You watch every single thing that you do come from galaxy. Watch those things. Watch those God beats and you hold yourself. You put yourself back into order, because this is a time of redemption. And how do you seek resolve that

00:37:25--> 00:37:27

you look at the definition of taqwa. And

00:37:28--> 00:37:29

that was how do we get

00:37:34--> 00:37:44

to the forgiveness of your Lord and a paradise that is as vast as the heavens and the earth and promised for those who are conscious and fearful of Allah subhanaw taala. For

00:37:49--> 00:37:57

those who give, and both hardship and ease, they're giving. They understand a loss

00:37:58--> 00:38:03

provides. And I know normally when you see someone standing up to fundraise, you say

00:38:04--> 00:38:32

we just had one yesterday, but your attitude should be attempted a lot. This is more real estate in Jamaica, this is a greater chance to increase my stock with a loss. You restrain yourself from greed, you restrain yourself from stinkiness and you give even though you might be in a hard situation, you give according to whatever your circumstances are. And isn't that the spirit of Allah the Prophet was

00:38:35--> 00:39:07

married in the month of Ramadan more generous than the blowing week in discriminants, like a tornado or a hurricane coming through. everywhere around the province. I was experiencing his father. He always gave silica but in Ramallah it was even to a greater extent. When Cal the Nina light of the ones who swallow their anger, and what is the profit slice of them tell us in Milan if someone comes to you, and starts to argue with you or fight with you, or starts to curse you, or starts to speak in an ignorant way with you?

00:39:08--> 00:39:09

Let's say

00:39:10--> 00:39:35

that I'm seeking the reward for the person who's insulting and seeking reward the one who's angry, so I swallow my anger and I say Oh Allah. Of course on a private level, I say, Oh, well, ah, I sprained my ankle from this person, although I was fully justified and responding. So restrain your anger for me. What have you noticed? Now without a pardon people

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

they read they reconnect those bonds that were broken.

00:39:40--> 00:39:59

What benefit would it be, if you found this entire month and you read the entire month, and you did everything right, but then a loss of animals out of rejects everything. Because of the grace between you and another brother, there could be two people in the motion right now that try to avoid each other out.

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

A lot

00:40:01--> 00:40:06

of informed us that whenever the deeds are presented to a loss of data, and the narration of

00:40:08--> 00:40:12

a law looks at the deeds of two people that are correlate and says, lol we'll

00:40:14--> 00:40:33

leave these two until they fix what's between them. I don't even want to see their games. What's the benefit there? You pardoned people, even though you know that that person was wrong. You go to that person and you say, forgive me. Forgive me. I'm sorry. Let's be brothers. Sisters.

00:40:34--> 00:40:51

I forgive you. You forgive me. You pardon people. Why? Because of the necessity of a muscle alone by yourself specifically in Ramadan. What was his favorite guy on the last night Allahumma, Nika who to help with Africa?

00:40:52--> 00:41:04

Oh Allah, you are one who loves to party. You are the partner, the one who loves to party, so pardon me, forgive me. So you want the lots of forgiveness. So you forgive other people.

00:41:06--> 00:41:07

He none of

00:41:10--> 00:41:12

you, first of all a lot with the man

00:41:14--> 00:41:19

then you can expect that you will forgive all of your previous

00:41:21--> 00:41:40

partners for our shortcomings. We are the last ones out to overlook our mistakes, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to live to see them a lot. And so how's the benefit respond a lot, and so allow us to be forgiven this whole month. And we asked the last half hour not to make this amongst those from the best of the angels and also

00:41:42--> 00:41:52

the best of mankind made to outcomes, but rather we asked the last hour to elevate us to the status of the level of gender for those in the competitive with the lowest

00:41:54--> 00:41:56

and the highest level of Paradise alumni.

00:42:08--> 00:42:10

Along with Sony's assembly robotic crowd because

00:42:15--> 00:42:22

if I could ask everyone to move forward and shuffle as close as possible. These were formative shuttling space for those coming in late.

00:42:32--> 00:42:53

Dear brothers and sisters, I want to conclude with connecting taqwa with something that Allah Subhana Allah has connected with what we're supposed to be gaming through this month of Ramadan, more than anything else, when the loss of kind of what's Allah says, Yeah, you have a couple of our mouths.

00:42:55--> 00:43:35

Oh, you who believe fear of God, and be with those who are crucial to us. And without, you know, many times, when we're in our vulnerable states, we make promises to Allah. Whenever we find ourselves financially distraught, we make a promise to Allah, we say, oh, if you give me money, if you allow me to get over this financial hurdle, I promise you, they'll start getting more charity, I promise you, I'll start going to the message more often. Oh, a lot, you let me get into the school, I promise you, they'll start doing this, they'll start doing that all a lot. If you just get me out of this situation, I promise you that I'll never go back to that sin. Again, we make a lot of

00:43:35--> 00:43:45

promises when we're vulnerable eating people that are much the key for fall, this believers will make promises to our loss out of the data, whenever they are in their moments of vulnerability that

00:43:49--> 00:44:31

tells us that whenever there being envelope by the waves in the ocean on a dark night, and as in a person who's drowning, even though he's a Catholic, he's a disbeliever, he will call upon a law sincerely made promises to get me out of the situation. If you saved me, I promise you, I'll be a better person. I promise you all do this. But once Allah subhanho wa Taala, rescues them, and brings them to shore they completely forget, they completely forget. And let's face it, many times we do that too. If you ever look on an aeroplane, whenever the turbulence starts to get really bad, everyone starts to close their eyes, and they go out in their own way. And then as soon as the

00:44:31--> 00:45:00

turbulence stops, they pick up their cell phones, they call everyone that they know and they say they talk about how crazy their experience was. But how many people will actually follow up on that dial that they were making at that moment. It's a form of drama. And the point is, is that usually when we're in vulnerability, we are it's easy to make your art. It's easy to ask a lot of things. It's easy to say oh, I promise you this and I promise you that how many of us are struggling with a sin and a lot of people

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

How to Stay due from a near death experience. A lost kind of data saved you from something huge whether or not you ascribe grace to him, Allah saved you from something. And then you said, Oh, this is the last time. I'm never gonna do this synagogue. I'm never gonna do this again. But we're forgetting something very important. The point is not just to make promises to us, either when you're vulnerable as a matter of law being truthful that a lot is fulfilling those promises when you're in that situation that allow you in your adversity could not allow for the heart gotta

00:45:38--> 00:45:51

be with a lot in good times on mobile know you hear vulnerable times a mobile answer that you're vulnerable. But we have to learn to be truthful with Allah when we say we want to be forgiven by Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:45:52--> 00:46:21

When we say we want this to the best of our lives, when we say oh, I'm ready to change. I'm ready to change. I promise you, I'm going to change my life Hold up. How serious are we when we make those claims? How many teenagers make those claims when they hit a really hard situation? How many people struggling with the economy, make those check make those claims make those promises? whenever they're struggling with their job situation? People always make promises when they're vulnerable.

00:46:23--> 00:46:24

But there are people

00:46:28--> 00:46:34

there are people that are truthful with a lot of what's out with the promises that they made.

00:46:35--> 00:47:15

And I want you to really think that all on your time for redemption, but a lot your time for forgiveness, Ramadan, your time to really change your life. How disgusting would it be if all along comes and goes and you still have a sense of penny of our money? How disgusting will it be a robot comes and goes and you're still insisting on the same sin? How disgusting Lupita for all along comes and goes and you have not abandoned your relationship. And you have not abandoned your drugs and you have not abandoned your your your ill behavior your bad behavior towards your family members. How disgusting will it be is what a waste it will be a form of on comes and goes and you don't change

00:47:15--> 00:47:26

those things about yourself. And that's where the true self with a lot. The truthfulness with a lot really sucks because as the other the

00:47:29--> 00:47:55

other one does. Anyone can do good deeds, good deeds, anyone can do the deeds. Anyone can read more. Anyone can come to the most important, anyone can do more volunteer work, anyone can give more charity. Anyone can do good deeds. There are atheists that do more volunteer work than the Muslims. There are atheists that like to praise that like to do meditation and yoga. There are atheists that do these things. Anyone can do that as

00:47:56--> 00:48:00

a sinner and a righteous person, what we are talking about

00:48:02--> 00:48:26

that no one can abandon sins unless he's true for the last time. That's when you really know you're serious with a lot when you're able to get rid of the poisons in your life when you're able to get rid of the one because the diseases that stop you from progressing in your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala Oh, a lot. I'm willing to hold myself. I'm willing to restrain myself. I'm willing to practice the

00:48:27--> 00:48:36

car as the means restraints. The linguistic meaning of sciatica is restraints on holding myself through or alone.

00:48:37--> 00:48:47

that's been true for the last hour or so is that there's a direct connection with your brothers and sisters. Between a tough one was a couple Ah, whoa, whoa, whoa, man.

00:48:48--> 00:49:05

I want to leave you all with one story. One, authentic narration some kind of scenario. novalja is a very beautiful, beautiful narration. And I've mentioned it two times in the last month. So if you've heard it before, forgive me, without the collective

00:49:07--> 00:49:11

remind each other because the reminder benefits of a leader were called out

00:49:13--> 00:49:24

all the time article says that I have a dream one night, and I was standing at the gates of Geneva. And next to me were to mount

00:49:25--> 00:49:48

su Sahaba. Both passed away. They both became Muslim on the same day. Both of these man came on the same day. One of them died a year before the other. He died as a martyr. The other one lived for exactly a year after he died a normal death. He died in normal death.

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

So we're standing near the SU Sahaba. One

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

and then the caller called whose agenda The one who did not die so he

00:50:00--> 00:50:22

Who died the year after the other one, we called him to paradise service. Then the other one was called to turn also they both entered into paradise. And I saw myself standing in front of the gates of Paradise and I still have not answered until I was told, go back because it's not your time yet. It's a good dream for him because that means he's going to gender. That means an international

00:50:23--> 00:50:27

paradise. So he said the next day, when the

00:50:29--> 00:50:40

sun used to ask us a holiday, we used to say which of you saw a good dream last night? used to always ask them share your good dreams? So I said I had a strange dream. And he told him this dream.

00:50:42--> 00:50:44

And the Sahaba were shocked. And

00:50:46--> 00:50:47

then a

00:50:48--> 00:51:03

shock from the city also love. The guy who went to Jamaica first was not as good as the other one or the other guy said he saw how you were to jump a fence. And the prophet SAW someone listened to his answer. He says Elisa, however,

00:51:06--> 00:51:10

this person lives a year longer than this person said yes.

00:51:13--> 00:51:14

And he caught another robot.

00:51:15--> 00:51:21

And He fasted and created it, the right port and they said yes. And

00:51:26--> 00:51:40

so the distance between them is greater than the distance between the heavens and the earth. Now, every time I mentioned this narration put together as authentic narration centered method. Someone comes up to me afterwards and says that I insulted the Shahada. I didn't insult the Shahada

00:51:43--> 00:52:25

insult the Shahada or someone was telling us this month of Ramadan is really really really tough discussion. It's not much of a mercy from a lot. It's not just the first 10 days the diversity the second 10 days forgiveness the third seven days the protection from hellfire. Actually domination is weak. There's nothing there is equally Yeoman will be all along or the bottom and I'm not. Every day of Oman is mercy forgiveness and being protected free from Hellfire every day allows you to write some people the first second third day maybe the 27th, maybe the 21st maybe the 18th 17th every day allows you to write a group of people who will be decided to free from Hellfire because of that a

00:52:25--> 00:52:25

lot a lot

00:52:28--> 00:52:39

of the mercy of a loss of habitat and we can't take for granted that we will live to see it all along. So we asked last time was out and shot love with full sincerity a lot.

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

A lot.

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

A lot.

00:52:54--> 00:52:55

cost me

00:52:59--> 00:53:00

a lot of money.

00:53:08--> 00:53:09

As well as you know the reality of

00:53:12--> 00:53:13

the matter on wall.

00:53:19--> 00:53:20

Street stayed

00:53:22--> 00:53:36

long enough in Burma long enough in Iraq with the Pakistan models, what the service is out of balance, but we could have

00:53:38--> 00:53:38

to

00:53:39--> 00:53:40

debating style you need to

00:53:48--> 00:53:49

be able to select

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

one of these will

00:53:55--> 00:53:56

hold on
