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

What a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala so mighty viewers, brothers sisters, ladies and gentlemen, how can we welcome this blessed month of Ramadan?

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

How many months of Ramadan Have you witnessed?

00:09:18--> 00:09:25

Are you sure that you go into witness maybe this Ramadan until the end? Or are you sure that you're going to witness the next Ramadan?

00:09:27--> 00:09:32

How can we work on Ramadan? Like I said it's a very special month.

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

The Baghdad the the the

00:09:36--> 00:09:40

the blessings in fact that descend in this special month

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

are in multifold.

00:09:44--> 00:09:58

So how can we welcome this blessing the month of Ramadan? I'd like to share with you some elements or some pointers and shallow data on how to welcome this blessed month of Ramadan. First and foremost Ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, my dear viewers

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

repentance. I first we all first need to repent to Allah subhana wa tada in this blessed month of Ramadan.

00:10:09--> 00:10:22

That's how first and foremost we should work on this verse of the month by offering our sincere repentance to Allah subhanho wa Taala why repentance, you may ask, why do I need to repent?

00:10:24--> 00:10:38

I don't need to repent. In fact, I just prayed. First of all in Jamaica, I just prayed, you know, Asia in Jamaica, I just I'm fasting hamdulillah I paid my Zika I paid I do see I'm handled I'm fine. I just went for a hedge. So why do I need to repent?

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

Allah Akbar

00:10:42--> 00:10:45

Some people think that repentance is only meant for the sinners.

00:10:47--> 00:10:48

Law.

00:10:49--> 00:11:15

Why the Prophet so some would seek forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Taala. In a gathering, they used to count more than 70 to stick far as the profit as a means to make in one particular gathering more than 70 times the prominence and would seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he would repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Subhana Allah addresses His prophets and he says, Yeah, tequila or prophet, Allah. Wasn't the Prophet faithful to Allah. Allah is there to feed him.

00:11:18--> 00:11:33

Allah subhanho wa Taala more when he says not to go in a lion? Yeah, you're Latina, Manitoba Allah. O you who believe to win Amati Jamia yohannes v. repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala Yeah, you're Latina M and O ye

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

O you who believe.

00:11:37--> 00:11:58

repent to Allah sincere repentance. So repentance is not only meant for the sinners, ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters. Repentance is meant for everyone even the Prophet as a means to repent to Allah subhana wa Tada. Just think think with me. When was the last time you backed by Did someone or backstab someone or you missed a prayer?

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

Are you amongst those

00:12:02--> 00:12:26

who are unkind to their parents and come to the children maybe amongst those who miss that prayers, maybe amongst those who mix there they don't give charity and and are not full or do not fulfill their obligations towards Allah subhana wa tada or the system amongst those that only potential when you go to the masjid and if they leave the masjid, you take off your hijab, you think you don't need a repentance?

00:12:29--> 00:12:33

Those who commit adultery don't they think that they don't need repentance?

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

Those who did with Riba,

00:12:38--> 00:12:43

those who didn't with Riba, with haram with interest, don't they think that you need to repentance?

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

Every one of us needs repentance.

00:12:48--> 00:12:53

And to live with this beautiful name at the web, beautiful name of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:04--> 00:13:05

Are you amongst those

00:13:06--> 00:13:30

who are unkind to the parents and cut to the children? Maybe amongst those who means that prayers maybe amongst those who mix there they don't give charity and and are not full or do not fulfill the obligations towards Allah subhana wa tada or the system amongst those that only potential when you go to the masjid and if they leave the masjid, you take off your hijab, you think you don't need repentance?

00:13:33--> 00:13:37

Those who commit adultery don't they think that they don't need repentance?

00:13:39--> 00:13:47

Those who did with Riba, those who did with Riba, with haram with interest, don't they think that they need repentance?

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

Every one of us needs repentance.

00:13:52--> 00:13:58

And to live with this beautiful name at the web, beautiful name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In fact, the Bible

00:13:59--> 00:14:28

says that, that the entire religion of Islam is embedded in something called Koba repentance. No wonder why a dweb he's beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala No wonder why the word is habibollah a type habibollah No wonder why the one who who is who depends his most beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala why he deserves to be beloved by Allah Subhana Allah why because Allah Subhana Allah says

00:14:29--> 00:14:33

there will be a lot your head with the webbing Allah loves those who repent.

00:14:36--> 00:14:40

So do not think that repentance is only meant for the seniors Ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters.

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

We all need repentance.

00:14:45--> 00:14:52

And rest assured that Allah subhana wa Taala he becomes so happy when you repent to him Allah.

00:14:54--> 00:14:56

Allah becomes happy when you repent to him.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

He doesn't need me to repent does he

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

Is he going to add anything to his dominions of Hana if I were to repent? No. But he becomes happy so what the Allah when you repent what I repent when we repent to Allah

00:15:11--> 00:15:14

as the Prophet Allah circumstances in it reported by Bukhari Muslim,

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

the help narrated by us nomadic

00:15:18--> 00:15:44

about the example of this man who's traveling in the middle of in the middle of the desert with his camel with his ride, that's got all the provisions and the means of survival food and water. And then in the middle of his journey, he lost his camel, he lost his ride. He had no pagers, no phones, no, no cell phones, no computers, no chatting, or MSN, no Facebook and nothing.

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

He's lost.

00:15:48--> 00:16:00

All of a sudden, he saw when he lost his ride. And he lost all means of survival. He goes under the tree and he sits his head between his knees, waiting for medical moat, waiting for the angel of death.

00:16:03--> 00:16:38

As he's sitting there, waiting, all of a sudden what happens he raises his head and then he sees his camel his ride in front of him with all the food and water with all the provisions that he had, everything was there. Imagine few minutes ago, a few hours ago, he saw death. Now he sold life again. He became extremely happy, so happy that he invoked a law that uses a law home and empathy or another book or a law you are my my slave and I am your Lord.

00:16:40--> 00:16:45

He made this very, very severe grave mistake

00:16:48--> 00:17:02

of happiness. He meant to say Allahumma anta Obi Wan abduch. He meant to Selma, you Oh my god, you're my, you're my Lord and I'm your slave, but of happiness. He switched it.

00:17:03--> 00:17:25

The Prophet Elisa to Islam says that Allah becomes even happier than this man who lost his ride who was about to die. And then he found his right again, which means the means of survival. He's alive again. He'd be Allah subhanho wa Taala becomes happier than this man when you repent to him.

00:17:30--> 00:17:33

Allah, repentance

00:17:35--> 00:17:37

and some people in fact, they think that

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

you know what?

00:17:41--> 00:17:45

I have committed so many sins that I don't think of like and forgive me.

00:17:48--> 00:17:51

I have committed so many grave sins that I don't think Allah Subhana can forgive me.

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

What I tell those, listen.

00:17:56--> 00:18:03

Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive the man from Bengal Islam in hooking 100 lives, wouldn't he forgive you?

00:18:05--> 00:18:13

Allah subhanho wa Taala for gave the man who killed the anchor of the Prophet Mohammed Ali salatu salam, wouldn't he forgive you?

00:18:16--> 00:18:29

Wouldn't it forgive you? Allah He loves to forgive. He is the most forgiving Subhana he is at the web. The one who initiates the Toba, the one who has just stated the Toba that you and I can repent

00:18:30--> 00:18:38
