My dear viewers, brothers and sisters, ladies and gentlemen as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah. This is your host of the other words, Ozzy and welcome back to another episode of reflections of Islam, where we're talking about this blessed guest Ramadan. And we talk about you know, some pointers on how to welcome Ramadan. The first point was a tailback repentance to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we explain the meaning of Toba and why we should repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala Almighty God but number two another on how to welcome Ramadan, his brothers and sisters Ladies and gentlemen, do not miss out from the blessings that descend in this past month.
Do not miss out from the opportunities that are in abundance, that in fact they sent in this special and blessed month. The Prophet Elisa two sentences in this habit, and it's how it is narrated by Obama or better no summit and reported by Ronnie harriton Hassan has a good Hadith that the Prophet Allah is of semi Ganga Ramadan, he is to say attackmen Ramadan, Mubarak Shah como lo fi Ramadan has come it's a blessing the month of shock como la huffy Rama Rama descends in this verse of the month as the Prophet is Assam says in Sofia Rama hapa then he he forgives the sins in this vessel month of Ramadan. You have to feed him papaya with the help of he and he answers the app in this lesson man
yeah and in this blessed month of Ramadan, this is the month where the simplification of Allah subhanho wa Taala is automatically granted, wastage he will feed way on the election FEC confirmed higher and then he looks at those who compete towards good deeds. When elected office conflate those who compete towards coming close to Allah subhanho wa Taala what you bear Hebei C'mon Malaika and then the Prophet Allah sutras and says that Allah subhana wa Tada. He mentioned our names to His angels of law right now.
Allah subhana wa tada is telling his angels, all my angels look at my servant, Ahmed, Mohammed Ali. Omar use of foreplay Maha Isha deja la hora. Look at them, they are fasting.
Imagine a life mission, your names to His angels.
What a beautiful blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then the Prophet Allah is such as some says, In the Sharia man Halima Rahmatullah Ramadan, the Shakti The one who is unfortunate is don't who miss out on these blessings that the sun in this vessel is really unfortunate.
And ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, my dear viewers, these blessings when they descent in this blessed month,
how would they find you? And why would they find you?
Especially in the last half of the nights? What would they find you and how would they find you in what state
sleeping, watching TV on your PC on your laptop chatting, wasting time
descending in abundance, and you are missing out on them?
Yeah, you're smart, my brothers and sisters, my dear viewers, you don't want to miss out on this opportunity. As the Prophet Allah Sufism says, By Allah you don't know whether you're going to make it into the end of Ramadan. You don't know whether you're going to make it until now until today and to the fraction of second from now you don't know. It See? Allah subhanaw taala He loves you so much that just giving you another opportunity to witness Ramadan
so make it an outstanding Ramadan, making the Ramadan like no other Ramadan before make it back. This is the lowest Ramadan Imagine if this is the last Ramadan in your life.
How are you going to live it? How are you going to fast it is how you need to fast Ramadan and every Ramadan make it as if this is my last Ramadan.
How many people that you know actually last year well faster than we do last year? We'll pray with you last year who admits pm winter last year and print and add last year. They're not here this year. What are they are they gone?
Take advantage but number three ladies and gentlemen, another pointer of how to welcome Ramadan. Asana, Asana, this is the map of Salah. This is the month of prayers of sola, sola woman Malik is a man who come as the Prophet is of some use to say, as he was dying. In his deathbed, he said that prayers prayers
are the corner. The Prophet Cyrus of Sciences in his head reported by the sooner
he is to say, what he said in this Hadith, that if
you burn and burn in committing sins, he does have way too much
power and then when you pray when you pray further, it will wipe out all the sins that you've been doing and then
and then you burn and burn committed sins.
But then when you pray, though, it will wipe out and cleans those sins that you then between first of all
and then you burn and burn committing sins.
And after I
will human beings we make mistakes. We're not infallible Ladies and gentlemen, we do make mistakes with weak so the promises Will you burn and burn in committing sins for either sunlight tomorrow
and then when you pray, it will wipe out all those sins and then tatata tatata on Friday
and then when you pray it No It will wipe out those sins and then you burn and burn committed sins and then when you wait when you pray a shot let's say that and then when you pray a shot it will wipe out all those sins to maintain amoun for a country satisfactory to
the Prophet awesome says and then you go back to sleep nothing shall be written on you until you wake up the next day can be a solid
especially in the massage in this vessel Mondays and gentlemen brothers and sisters specially the brothers
in the masjid because this is a training thing you know, Ramadan is an exercise
so you have to build that habit of going and performing the praise in the measured
by Allah ladies and gentlemen brothers and sisters you know let me ask you a question this massages beautiful massages are they made for for people to come and visit them once in a once a year or maybe no Madonna's by Allah let me ask you this
which is fold. First and Sala author we
of course first of all is is that our history.
But a lot of people they go and they revive the sooner and then he lives. The lives of
our messages are crowded Mashallah and Ramadan in a way, but first time what happens? So we need to build the habit of praying the silhouette in the masjid. Except if you have an excuse that goes along with the Sharia.
And Islamic an Islamic excuse, like you're sick, like these like pulling rain, like some wind that you cannot really come out from your home and go to the masjid.
But please, please, you know, now let me ask you a question again. A
lot of people excuses are until the movie is over.
Is that an excuse?
Or until the game is over?
Until the soccer game is over? Or the football game is over? Or the basketball game is or this movie's over, and busy as soon as they finish and then go to the masjid. Is there an excuse? Of course it's not an excuse ladies and gentlemen.
Allah, Allahu Allah if our if our those pillars in our massages if they were to talk they will be they will cry blood.
You know, the prophet Elisa stem says in the Hadith reported in Muslim
about the heaviest Salah, and for the the the hypocrites, he says social Anisha
the prayer official and the prayer of Asia and he says if they were to know the good in them in these two prayers in the in the masjid, or like the Prophet says, if they were to know the good in them, they would they would go to the masjid even if they were to crawl to the masjid crawl into them. Imagine if you were to know the good of these two players in German.
So of Salomon Brothers, let's build this habit. This is an opportunity really to build that habit of praying the silhouette inside the machine.
Another inshallah who had a
pointer on how to welcome Ramadan. Ladies and gentlemen, as I said, this is really a month whereby one should come close to Allah subhanho wa Taala as the doors of heaven are wide open
This month, and in fact, he said he didn't
go back and look at the cedar of the profit items of Sam. How was he in Ramadan? He used to do all the good Subhanallah you know that he used to do and it's sad to say that in Ramadan he used to do a lot more. He used to increase in the amount of doing good deeds. Especially, you know, donating and spending in the cause of Allah subhana wa Tada. He used to be so generous, but in the Ramadan used to be more generous and his salat wa salam.
Why? Because everything is multiplied in multiforme in Ramadan. $1 in Ramadan that you were to give a pound or ringlets or whatever it is, any any amount of money that you give me Ramadan, the least you need to multiply it by seven hundreds, the least.
And a lot more. That's only in Ramadan.
It's an opportunity not to be really missed out. You need to leverage of these hierarchies that descend in Ramadan
and do not feel poverty Ladies and gentlemen, never feel poverty, especially in this manner and donate and give for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. Let me share with you one story of the spice men by the name of Hatchimal awesome. Listen up, had a son. He was a pious man, and he wanted to go for Hajj came to him his wife and she says Well, no, you cannot go because we've got nobody to support us.
So you're the only one actually who works here so you can go and then came his daughter. He has a bunch of kids, but Kimmy is probably one of his you know his youngest daughter. In fact, she came to me she says that you want to go for his girlfriend as you are not our Zach Allah is oh Zack.
Allah is the provider of lies the Sustainer unlike the nourisher
advocate, Allah Zack subhana wa Tada. So if you want to go for his piece go dead.
And then he decided to go. Of course he gave them some means of you know, food and whatnot. He didn't leave him some stuff. But he went for hedge but somehow Russia enough the house rent of a food. And he comes the test. The mother and the other kids, they came to this little daughter, the price one and they all started blaming her it was because of what's happening to us now. We've got no food. You're the one who let your father go. It is because of you now. And they started really blaming her slimy there and then she was Myskina she's a little kid. She went out crying, crying to whom to Allah to Allah, Allah Zack. Then the reassure the Sustainer
when he went for hedge, but somehow Russia enough the house rent of a food. And he comes to test. The mother and the other kids, they came to this little daughter, the price one and they all started blaming her it was because of Unicode saboteurs now, we've got no food. You're the one who let your father go. It is because of you now. And they started really blaming her slimy there and then she was Myskina she's a little kid. She went out crying, crying To whom? To Allah, to Allah, Allah Zack, the nourisher the Sustainer
Allah subhanho wa Taala. The one who says, What is the other guy by the name?
If you might stainswhich asked you about me I am near I answered the call of the needy. The one who says tequila is
the one who says whosoever says Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala shall provide them from ways and avenues he's never thought of as that
we all believe that we as Muslims, that Allah is the provider, but do we act as if Allah is the provider? Do we live in accordance with this concept that Allah is the provider? Do you? Do we? Why do we deal with Haram, one of the Muslims deanwood Haram. If you and I believe that Allah is the provider, why do we seek wrong ways or means to provide for our families, to one crime before Allah.
And then somehow the magic happens. The Emir of that, of that town, happened to be walking with his soldiers, with his people. he happened to be walking by the House of Hanuman, Assam, and he felt thirsty.
And he says I need to drink some water. Please get me some water. They went to the closest home to get him some water and it was the home of
so they gave him some water, he took the water, he drank anaysis Hamdulillah, whose houses this? They said, This is the house of Hatem. Awesome. This is Oh, is it The Iceman? They said yes. So please call him I'd like to thank him. They said No, he won't for her she's not here.
And then he says, then it is a must on us to take care of his family in his absence. It is our obligation to take care of his family in his absence is what he said. And then look, look at the beauty look at the gold look at the magic from Allah subhana wa Tada. He pulled as their currency the time used to be from gold. So he pulled the little bag from his pocket back in those small bags full of gold
currency and then he throw it into the house of Hatchimal awesome
that he just throw it into the house of Hatchimal awesome.
And the family became happy.
money but Allah subhana wa tada wanted more. Look, Allah wanted more more what look what happened to me. He goes to his soldiers, and he says, Who amongst you loves me? He should do exactly as I did. If you guys really love me, then do as I did. And everybody all the soldiers, all these people that were behind them, they started taking you know, money from the pockets and throw it into the into the house of Hatchimal. Awesome.
Amazing, isn't it?
Amazing, isn't it?
I'm telling you.
And you know the mother now she's happy. Yeah. And she went to the doctor. Yeah. Thank you. Thank you. You know what your father can stay? He doesn't have to come back. Now, and then she was crying? Who the little girl Why are you crying baby? Why are you crying? We're so happy. We're so rich. Now.
You know what she said?
She says lack of novela Elena mahalo constructeur Nina, for K for the mother of Harlequin Elena, one of the mukluks one of the creations of Allah has looked upon us and you have become so rich. However, if Allah Himself looks after us.
And he did he was Allah who said that people that man and his soldiers, those people to take care of, of the house of having a son, who is such a very pious man who put his trust in Allah and who taught his kids especially that that daughter who taught her to put and delegate her affairs to Allah subhana wa Tada. Yes, to use the means. Take the means follow the means yet put your trust in the Lord of the means. Who is Allah subhana wa Tada. So ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, this is your opportunity.
This is your opportunity, really, to come close to Allah subhanho wa Taala. With so many things that we can do.
By like I said Toba to Allah subhanho wa Taala repentance to Allah subhanho wa Taala sincere repentance to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and rest assured that Allah Subhana Allah would accept your repentance and not to miss out from the opportunities that dissent in this verse of the month the month of Ramadan.
Asana, the prayers
especially to build this habit of praying the Salawat inside the masjid in this in this blessed month of Ramadan so that we can inshallah tada you know keep on doing so after Ramadan Why? Because we're not Ramadan Ian's are we we're not Ramadan Ian's we are Rabbani Ian's who do not worship Ramadan we worship the rock of Ramadan who worship Allah subhanho wa Taala the look of Ramadan Don't we?
Imagine if there is a river by your home and your chickens yourself five times from that river as the Prophet is Sufism says wouldn't would any any any dirt remain in your buddy. The Sabbath said no elsewhere Allah, a river clean beautiful river flying or flowing. You know by the by your by your door in your home back outside as soon as you open your door and there's a river flowing in and then you were to go every day five times a day and clean yourself like take a bath a shower from that river with any dirt remaining your buddy. No.
And then the profit is likewise the saga, the Salah, mo lobiondo coppia
Allah subhanho wa Taala would cleanse you from your sins to the side
The coolness to your eyes the coolness of the eyes of the Prophet it is such
as for that additional VIP that used to tell me that oh began we want to find some rest. Rest Aren't you resting now yellow so a lot. He's with family, you know, sitting with this, you know, and having fun
And then you'd go oh blah blah we want to have some rest. The profit is to find rest in the salon
What do you find rest
in the salon Have you felt the sweetness of Salah
Have you ever felt the sweetness of the Salah? Have you ever made one one search that Allah subhana wa tada and you never wanted to come out from that search. Why? Because you've had something so sweet. something so beautiful, so sweet that you want to just remain in that search that and not to come back out from that search.
Have you the Sahaba used in fact, to you know, spend the whole night making sushi to Allah subhanho wa Taala so was the Prophet is awesome and so many generations
want it to be that habit
with the sun.
And then like I said, and in fact we Sabina donated for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada
spending in the cause of Allah Subhana Allah tada without feeling poverty, because that is Allah subhana wa Tada. And last but not least, ladies and gentlemen, let us all do some accountability. Someone has said there
has about accountability.
Before he used to go to sleep, he used to say, mad at the corner because
what would you tell your Lord?
before he goes to bed, he used to say, what would you tell him?
If If a cow was to trip in Iraq, Allah would ask you what, why didn't you pave the road? For that cow? oma Have you paved the road for that cow, she wouldn't have tripped. This is Maha Sabha.
This is accountability. As he was distributing apples, the spoil of war overcame his son. And then he took an apple and had a bite of it. And then he took that Apple, and then he took that in, he opened his son's mouth, and he took the apple of his son's mouth, that bite.
And then the son went out crying. He went home crying. So I went home. He opened his home, and then he smelled apple. And then he was so angry. Why, who What did you guys get apples from? Is it from the support of the other words, it's from the Muslim staff that support that, that Apple used to go to the Muslims first. He sort of said, No, no, no, no, don't worry. You're the son who came crying. And they went with my own money and they bought him apple. I bought him an Apple
says, Let me tell you, well, you know what, when I took the bite off of his mouth, he was like, I was snatching something off of my own body of my own heart. But I didn't want to hold me accountable for one bite for one apple that was supposed to go to the Muslim source.
He would feed the Muslims before he would feed himself.
Not only himself but his family, he would take care of the Muslims first before taking care of his own family or the law. This is accountability. So let us do some accountability. Brothers and sisters, ladies and gentlemen, my dear viewers, just from last Ramadan until this Ramadan, just from last weekend to this week.
You know, if you were to go in and write down all your sins and put them in one scale, and then and put all your you know your good deeds that say all your goodies in one scale, and put all the bad deeds in the other scale, which can you think would outweigh the good deeds or the bad deeds? I think most of us do bad deeds. If you were to count,
but you know what, who are we dealing with? Again, we're dealing with Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah for Allah. Allah, Allah fo
the most an oft forgiving subhanho wa Taala The one who loves to forgive,
especially in this blessed month of Ramadan.
So do some accountability. Sit with yourselves today or tonight and go and lock yourself up in your in your room, and then just do some thinking?
All your good deeds on your bad deeds and, and and if Millikan note, if the Angel of Death were to take her soul today, would you be ready to meet Allah? Would you?
If the issue of that was to come today and take you would you be ready to meet Allah? Would you be ready to stand before Allah today? Me? Me, Noah. Noah me. I tell you honestly, I am not ready.
But I'm hoping for Allah's mercy. Why? Because he is our hammer Rahimi. He is the most the compassionate subhana wa tada
the Most Merciful subhanho wa Taala of Hamlet. I mean, I asked him subhanho wa Taala to forgive all our sins in this blessed month, I asked him subhanho wa Taala to to grant us the highest level of agenda, inshallah.
In this lesson, I asked him subhanho wa Taala to forgive all our sins and not to prevent us from seeing his face in general in sha Allah tala. I mean, I mean, I mean what hamdulillah have a bit of had. I mean, may Allah bless you all my dear brothers and sisters, until another episode, I greet you with the greatest of stamina I say. Assalamu aleikum wa barakato
