house as we expected, and inshallah tada in just a minute for just a few minutes for the cloud is going to go up and he's got that long list of good news and also some policies and some of them are going to be following throughout this month in Thailand, some things, some housekeeping announcements for the message. But in the meantime, you know, I just wanted to give a few tips that come to the left, we're here, we're here in the month of Ramadan. So the first thing we think of loss of veterans out of for giving us the opportunity to live to see this month many people passed away in the last few months in the last few days, of course, our dear brother and icon,

00:00:37--> 00:01:17

have mercy on him just a few days ago. And we're here today. So the first thing that we do is we thank the last panel data for giving us an opportunity to live to see it hold on, once again, many of us last year might have thought it was our last one, and 100 of them, were here once again. And for some of us, this is our 30th Ramadan, or 40th Ramadan, some people have been doing all along for 60 plus years. And each and every single time is a testimony for you. And I want to share with you all the stories of how it is very powerful that it actually today happened. So I actually just came back from Houston, where I was visiting my uncle, I asked you all to please make an awkward Ashika

00:01:18--> 00:02:00

attitude to cure him completely, and to make it easy for his family. And there was a brother that took Shahada today, with brother majestic in Houston, and he's a former US Marine, he's an army veteran, a marine veteran. That's how a lot today, he took his Shahada. And I want you to imagine if today was your first day being Muslim, on your first day being Muslim, you're already asked lots of tunnels, and you already have to fast the next day. Can you imagine what that struggles like, you know, right away, you're jumping right into them alone. So May Allah grant him and all of the people that are doing all along for the first time, may Allah grant them firmness, and to be able to bear

00:02:00--> 00:02:35

this the struggles of this month while still tasting the sweetness of it alone. I mean, so why do I mention that? Why is that so important? You know, the forum? Have you heard football after football, we had a talk over here a lecture over here about the importance of getting shot down and right, planting the seeds and not preparing yourself and so on so forth. And right now what you could be doing is beating yourself up because you realize you didn't do any of those things you didn't fast and Chairman, like you said you would you really didn't plant many seeds in Russia, and so on, so forth. So now you're here and you might be beating yourself up and wondering, Well, what hope do I

00:02:35--> 00:03:10

have. And the fact of the matter is that it's not time to dwell on that right now. The fact of the matter is that you'd hear that and not in Ramadan. What you do now is don't give yourself any excuses for the rest of the month. Don't be a victim of the middle Amman dip, make sure you're here every night for total week, some, you know, some people will already let the laziness start to creep in. Once you miss out a week at one time, then you'll start to miss tumbleweed over and over and over again. And you will come to Russia on and off. Once you you miss your juice for the day, then you might start slacking off and missing you're out for the rest of the month and you give up on

00:03:10--> 00:03:45

your standard. So keep to your regimen. Keep to your standard. If you fall behind one day, don't let that mean you'll fall behind for the whole month. So inshallah tada let's keep ourselves vigilant. And the first thing I want you to do in Charlottetown, is I want you to introduce yourself to the person next to you or both people next to you. And I want you to to memorize that face. Memorize both of those faces. Why? Because if you don't see that person, that's totally another night that I want you to walk up to that person when you see them back and say hey, we're missing on Wednesday. Let's keep account for each other but

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

Introduce yourself.

00:03:55--> 00:03:55

Again,

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

face

00:04:02--> 00:04:03

to face.

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

Okay, and it's not a big deal.

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

Others vigilant

00:04:15--> 00:04:29

so may last time and keep our hearts together, connected to the message. And may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to gain freedom from Hellfire, this Ramadan and to attain His mercy and His forgiveness. Now I'm going to

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

go over some of the housekeeping announcements for the month.

00:04:42--> 00:04:45

Unfortunately, I have the task of delivering news that's not as exciting
