Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah My dear viewers, brothers and sisters, ladies and gentlemen, as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. This is your host rather zazzy and we're still talking about 24 hours in Ramadan.
We talked about you know, from day and from morning until evening, how one should conduct his life or his day or her day in Ramadan. So, we talked about now you're, you're getting ready to go to sleep, you're getting ready to go to bed, you go and make Moodle perform your Moodle and then you decide item colisee you may want to recite solid robotic robotic lady, where the human condition coded. Why because the Prophet It is such a slim says that it is and many, many other but not it is in fact according to the Hadith reported by a hakam and Ashima the very strong Hadith that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam says that this solid mark, it will sort of mark it will accompany you in
your grave, it will accompany you in your grave it is that solar if you were to recite it it will prevent you inshallah tada from entering Hellfire and this is if you were to recite that before you go to sleep so and then you sleep with the intention of
This is the intention Now you may want to do the intention of course you have the intention of like you're going too fast and that intention is is automatically built in you have to alter it and you don't have to utter it because it's built in you're gonna wake up for so hot anyways right so what you want to wake up first of all for just wake up first of all for the sake of of eating not you wake up for a hug because you're going too fast. So that's what I'm saying the near the intention is automatically built in you know as you're going to go to sleep and wake up for for so hot. So again the intention is that I'm going to wake up as a whole and not only that, but I'm going to wake up
4pm late inshallah tada to perform some prayers, the night prayer. Why the night prayer.
The night pray ladies and gentlemen brothers and sisters is really as the Prophet our system says inside Muslim and Buhari that it is the most bit of Salah in the sight of Allah after the mandatory prayers. After the mandatory prayers, the Sultan Li epsilon in Allah subhanho wa Taala the most bit of Santa to Allah subhana wa tada after the mandatory prayers is the night prayer, why a loss of house and it comes down in a way that befits His Majesty, as reported and narrated by homosexuality. reported by Muslim and Bahar is a very sound that Allah subhanaw taala comes down in the in the luster of the night. He comes down in a way that benefits His Majesty.
How does he come down he comes down in a way that befits His Majesty. And then he looks upon His servants. And then he says Who are those who are seeking forgiveness, I shall forgive them. Those who are making the heart shall grant them whatever they asked for those who are asking me for anything, I shall grant them whatever they're asking for those are making that I shall grant this application, those who are seeking forgiveness, I shall forgive them. So it is in fact, like the icing on the cake. The icing of the cake, you know on the cake is really that that salata lay the pmla the, you know, this is the thing that really may soften your heart, as our hearts have become
so rockin. If you want something to soften your heart, try pmla the prophets have never used to Miss pmla the only time that he missed pmla or the night prayer is when he in fact was sick, or is salatu salam. He used to love praying at night when everybody's asleep, and then you wake up
and you go, Makoto and you stand before Allah subhana wa tada and pray, asking him or asking for forgiveness and asking him to graduate with the highest level of agenda, inshallah tada the family. So how do you go to sleep with that intention?

not expediting the whole meaning that you have to leave your home until, until until the almost the time of added which is another Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam that you do the Salawat inside the masjid, these are all some of the etiquettes of Ramadan.
If you if you
fast Ramadan, remember fast in Ramadan and standing up and in praise in the month of Ramadan, you will be amongst the Shahada, and you will be amongst the city clean, the truthful ones in sha Allah Hi, Tara. This is the intention. I want to be amongst those truthful ones that Allah describes in the end.

to, you know, advise yourself and be in a bag at all times.

Allah has received so many blessings, you're able to break your fast, you're able Masha Allah, Allah to fast and able to break your fast, unable to eat and drink that other people actually have the filler. They don't have that luxury, or law. So think of these blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has blessed you would do not, do not undermine or underestimate any any good deed that you can do in a MOBA. Even even a smile in the face of your brother or sister in the face of your wife of your spouse of your kids. Do not underestimate any good deeds that you may do. as trivial as again, like I said, they have a date, that's all you can afford. And then maybe you can help someone break their
fast with that date. So try to do as many good deeds as you can in Ramadan. Be careful
Have you listen your tongue and what you utter and what you speak in Ramadan what you talk about in Ramadan Be careful of this of this of this listen for the sonic effort masala Be careful of of your site and what you look at in Ramadan Be careful of what you listen to in Ramadan Be careful remember it's an exercise it's a school we call it the Ramadan in school or this Ramadan ik school because it will prepare you to live your life in shallow data in accordance with the commands of Allah subhanaw taala after Ramadan so it's definitely a school
if you want to be friend, befriend those who are you know pious righteous so that they can help you come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala befriend the pious befriend the the truthful ones inshallah tada different the righteous people and righteous sisters and brothers in sha Allah hota Let your heart also fast in Ramadan, not only your your organs, but like I said, you know, your heart has to also fast by coming closer and pondering about the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala ask Allah subhana wa Taala to save you from Hellfire every day and every night in Ramadan, every day and every night as Allah subhanho wa Taala to prevent you from etrian Hellfire, ask Allah Subhana Allah to
make you amongst those who will be saved from the torment of Hellfire in Ramadan,
revived sooner in Ramadan, revive as many students as you can and stay away from the beta. This is the time to try to revive the student of the Prophet Ali's of Salaam
try to break to try to help people break the fast in Ramadan as much as you can. And to me
if you can, but try to do it in sha Allah who tada even if let's say a cup of water, that's all you can afford a cup of water before somebody breaks his fast you're gonna give him a glass of water just please could you break your festival this glass of water that's all I can afford.
So try to do that or if you can maybe invite some friends and whatnot sometimes. And shoutout to Allah do that. So with the intention to get the other in sha Allah who to
try in Ramadan to enjoin, good and forbid evil, abominable mouth when the honeymoon card would hikma in Ramadan.
Remember what I said would hikma with wisdom? in joining good forbidding evil. There was a man in fact by the name of blah Hebrew Adam, listen, Ibrahim no Adham came to him a Jewish man and he tries to provoke him. And he says Abraham, who's cleaner, who's pure your beard or my dog's tail,
my dog's tail which is pure, which is cleaner, your beard or my dog's tail. Let's try to provoke him. But look at it that way the hikma the wisdom of Adam, Adam says if my beard makes it to Jenna.
Of course my beard is better than your dog's tail. But if your dog's tail makes it and I don't make it the gender your dog's skin is better than me.
The Jewish says will lie this is nothing but the luck that matters of the NBA of the prophets. And He impressed he stepped on the spot.
With Hickman, if you want to enjoin good and forbid evil.
Try to visit you with your relationship with your parents in llamada.
Your parents ever work on McCormack? You father, your mother, try to you know, honor them in this visit month of Ramadan, to make the effort them in this visit the month of Ramadan, to support them to serve them in this visit the month of Ramadan, if they're alive, if they're dead, I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives them and shower His mercy upon them. Get closer to serving your parents in and grab this opportunity as the prophet Isaiah Selim says it's important, you know, by Muslim
when the Prophet was climbing the member and then he said, I mean, I mean, I mean, and then the Sahaba they came to me so why, you know, he said, you know, you were climbing the gnomon button then you said I mean, I mean, I mean, and, and one of the I mean, he says that Jubilee came to me and he says, Let his nose be done to dust. Yeah, and he will be a loser.
a loser who is this loser who witnesses his parents, one of them or both. And then he does not benefit from their benediction. He does not benefit from their blessings to antigen now.
Let his nose be be be you know, run in dust.
This man so again, get close and try to serve your parents and support your parents in this lesson.
month of Ramadan, also your neighbors This is the best time to get to inshallah Tada, especially if you live in a non Muslim country to try to break that ice and go and greet your neighbors and maybe you can bring some switcheroo or something to them and then greet them and talk to them about Ramadan, Ramadan, the motto of fasting and this is a time in fact to give them power.
This is an opportunity to give the power to your neighbors you know from time enough to this is the best reporting in fact to maybe get like I said, Get some you know, some sweets or whatnot. And then go and visit your neighbors and greet them and share something with them.
Especially like I said, if you live in a non Muslim country, also set up in Ramadan.
The tie your the the tie of kingship, uphold the tie of kinship, especially in the month of Ramadan, your uncle, your aunts, uncles, call them, try to go and visit them if they're close by If not, call them on the phone, if they're alive and go and visit them try to uphold the ties of kinship with your kinship in Charlotte Allah and His best month of Ramadan. Do not argue, don't argue, stay away from arguing, you know, especially in the month of Ramadan.
Don't argue much if somebody wants to argue a llama in the sign. I am fasting. I've got no time to argue with you. If somebody wants to argue why because you're fasting, you'll always you know constantly in the members of Allah subhanho wa Taala
do lots of recitation of the Quran in Ramadan. Lots of elicitation of the Quran. And I said if you're fluent in Arabic, you have to at least the site and if not once, twice, maybe three times or more
in the format of under the time of Ramadan, trying to do lots of recitation of the Quran in Ramadan, try to do your prayers in Jamaica in Ramadan. five daily prayers, especially first Anisha in Ramadan, you know inside the masjid. Why? Because he's Ramadan, you want to get as much blessings as you can try to do lots of pmla in Ramadan, the night prayer and with long canoes, long long cord long suit in your pmla This is the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam if there is a measure whereby you cannot find your heart Don't go to that measure go somewhere else What do I mean by a measure that by cannot find your heart try to go to some place some measure where you can find
do some who sure if there's this measure that all your friends in on a lot of people go there and then by the time you just go and just you know you don't find yourself in it. You just love people talking and whatnot and laughing and you know people are not taking advantage of of Ramadan. So go somewhere else when you can find your heart or you can in fact you know, concentrate and relax in that particular mission.
make lots of the heart in Ramadan. make lots of in Ramadan. Also do lots of fun in Ramadan. Lots of fun. Also if you can do a has an ombre Allah I mean, particularly no oma in Ramadan, that is the best.
