Some allowed him to last all summer so la Santa Monica hola barakaatuh. Maybe I'd like maybe to ask or request if you could join us here. We will look nicer Inshallah, if you were to join this Jamar, this gathering. This is how it used to be at the time of the Prophet Mohammed dosa, Sudan, they used to come so close to the Halacha we call this halacha a circle, if you can, but if you would like to sit, you can sit in Charlottetown and it's no problem. You can use a chair, but this is just to bring in the Spirit, you know, the feeling of being together close to one another. There used to be so close the Sahaba like shoulder to shoulder and they used to have that very calm Subhanallah that
spirits so much so, so much calmness that a bird would come and fall and like land on their shoulder. They would think the birds would think that they're just trees and branches off of trees. This is how you know calm and you know they were when they were listening to the Prophet Muhammad I said him, especially when the Prophet is talk about Jana. When the Prophet as I said we should talk about Jana and describe Jana the Sahaba will come so close to him. They feel as if they were already in Jannah and when the prophets of Allah says describing hellfire, they will start pushing back and pushing back like you know, they feel like oh hell awesome already. I'm seeing it they're above the
law and the mcbomb keep ahead of them. How are you doing? Eventually them Okay?

We're alive on this because we're okay hamdulillah
first of all, I'd like to share with you this hadith, because the topic of today is very, very crucial very important.
Three people whose fasting will not be accepted
not only fasting fasting prayer Vica whatever they do, not in will be accepted from them three people were was talking about them today inshallah.
But first, the blessings the virtues of these type of gatherings.
The Prophet Muhammad Ali Assam says hate reported by Bihari very some Hadith, Mr. Malcolm people that I get togethers.
P Bateman we Utila in a house of Allah azza wa jal just like this.
You have little sort of an orthodox Osuna who they're studying the Quran or making the Quran this is a hell of a decal.
Halak our by the name of Allah is mentioned. So we're making vicar of Allah azza wa jal, we're talking about Allah.
Few things will happen to them. These people just like you so I'm telling you here, you're not here because of the Iftar you have better Iftar at home for sure.
You're here because Allah has chosen you to listen to this and to get the reward of what I'm about to say now. Is Allah Wa, Russia toma Rama first Rama Mercy of Allah who have overwhelmed them
when people did get together just like this, about when overwhelmed and that's number one number two, when there's a tidy him was Sakina tranquility serenity will will descend upon them. Who will lead the unzila Sakina. Taffy Apollo will not nearly as they do Iman ma Imani him
is see Amen. He man is not a girl because when I see him he says oh that gay man that lady no Eman is this one the chef you know on the on the TV on time. Just please make the half for me.

Iman is faith.
Faith Eman goes up and down.
It goes up in an environment of Eman and it goes down environment of trial being reopened.
Live in outside of this type of environments, so this event booths that you have now, Charla, how do you feel empowered? You know when you come to the masjid it is not the same as when you are on your phone or watching TV or playing, you know, Playstation or whatever you do. And I'm not saying it's haram. No, I'm not saying that. But I'm saying the Eman is not the same. When you're here you feel empowered in the masjid when you listen to lecture when you leave or when you will feel empowered. But when you are doing you know whatever you're doing watching TV or or flipping channels you know, in email will definitely decrease. I didn't say again, it's how I'm only saying that Iman goes up
and down. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says he is the one who sent down Amen.
Onto the hearts of the believers Leah's dad to email in my email to him so that that email will increase Sakina will descend so when the Sakina descends Iman gets up. Gamer Iman gets boosted a man gets empowered in this particular gatherings Allah subhanho wa Taala sends down this serenity this Sakina we call it Sakina in Arabic it peace you may call it peace you may call it tranquility

outside sometimes my chest Dizzy no tight and I'm going through a lot of issues and being bothered I'm depressed, but Subhanallah sometimes yesterday I feel I feel I feel hindered or suited I feel good I feel peaceful. When you are in these types of environments. So Rama will overwhelm them Rama mercy will overwhelm them. Number two Sakina will descend upon them. Number three will have Fatone Mala Iike the angels will surround them at this very particular moment the angels are here surrounding us within wings

So these angels are here right now. That's what I'm trying to tell you. Because we are in this environment in the house of Allah azza wa jal talking about Allah azza wa jal in angels, Western deserts number three, remember, because I'm going to ask you questions, five things would happen. Number one, Mercy number two
Sakina tranquility number three angels will surround us. Number four, was the call of a home Allah Hafiz and ainda and Allah is mentioning their names to his angels right now.
When we are sitting, that's why I'm saying please come to these types of gatherings or do them even at home. You know, when you hear of a lecture happening, go and sit and why. You may say I'm not going to benefit anything. I know everything that Shaq was talking about. I know you know, mashallah, I know you know, but you know, the purpose is high the aim is that you get this as well you get this reward you get the the empowerment of your Eman and Allah is mentioned your names to his angels right now a lay saying to the angels, all my angels.

Ziad yet ear I'm RIA your EOD is here talking about me. Allah is mentioning your name do you have to understand what that means? Allah was mentioning to me Yes, Allah, to whom to his angels. Subhanallah Tara, and at the end of this sha Allah will not make it too long for you. Just a short, sweet talk in sha Allah. At the end of this talk at the end of the gathering, a caller from the heavens will call and call them up for under contract booty, let's say as compassionate stand up and leave we're done. At the end, a caller from the heavens with called stand up and leave. All your sins have been forgiven.
and your bad deeds have been converted into good deeds at Bucha that's a compassionate these are five things that we get when we have these types of gatherings.
So I wanted to start with this introduction sha Allah to Allah to pave the road as to what's to come next in sha Allah to Allah my brothers and sisters, I said that
in Ramadan, this is the month of Ramadan. This is the month of Baraka. This is the month of the Quran. This is a month of june of Quran of generosity. Everybody loves this month you know, there are a lot of videos on social media about people you know, having fun and at night and in Muslim countries going out and you just like that spirit of Ramadan, right Subhanallah even those who don't fast, you know, this video was going viral on on social media, you know, this guy was talking, you know, how's, you know, it says Ramadan, Gnosis Hamdulillah I don't feel hungry, I don't feel thirsty. So your fastest is not not fasting is not resting, but he's happy. And often angry, I don't
feel there's these I just love resting. And that really was going crazy online. You know, even those without their happiness, Ramadan, everybody's happy to Ramadan, right. But there are certain people whose fasting would not be accepted from them.
And that is the topic of today. Who are these people, we need to fix this. We need to fix this, you and I need to fix this in sha Allah Tana, not to be amongst those people, because you don't want to be just fasting and then a waste of your time. You're fasting but all you get is hunger. As the Prophet Muhammad says in one hurry, you know, there's a man or the person who's fasting is getting nothing off of his fasting except hunger. And another man who's doing pmla Is that he's getting nothing other than just being tired. You know, he's not getting no actual no reward whatsoever.
I wouldn't go home the very first
prevented or precluded. There is one person, the very first person to fill the first category
of those who are prohibited from earning the reward of fasting
is somebody who's sick.
He's been hit with cancer.
But what kind of cancer?
A heart cancer
literally, not literally heart cancer.
His heart is sick, Mara Tsaatan. It's a disease. It's more than cancer. It's a person who holds grudges in his heart or her heart who has not spoken to his friend or relative or whatnot for more than three days.
A person who chose not to meet the hearts.
You had an issue with someone
and you stop talking to that person.
You cut ties let's call it cutting ties
for more than three days.
fasted 2020 2022 2021 2020 2019 None of his fasting has been accepted.
None of his fasting has been accepted. The Prophet Muhammad Ali salatu salam when he says in his head it was very sound very authentic.
Are you muslim,
any Muslim that you desert for more than three days?
As the Prophet says that the amen our deeds
get taught before Allah subhanho wa Taala every Mondays and Thursdays on Mondays and Thursdays the deeds are put before Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet says that Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives everybody except two.
Who are having grudges among one another they stopped talking to one another Allah would say hold on for these hats as Polly hat until they make up.
I know you will have questions and I will answer those questions. Because you may say I maybe I tried talking to him but he does not want. I tried calling him on the phone he hung up or she hung up. I tried to visit him but they slammed the door on my face. Right.
But the property is saying
that these two people every Mondays and Thursdays by the way this is what Prophet Muhammad used to face on Mondays and Thursdays right now, because the AMA got to Allah azza wa jal on that on those days and in the month of Shaban as well. The muscle Shaban which is the month before Ramadan and Mondays and Thursdays Prophet Muhammad used to love those you know used to love fast in those days, because the AMA are put before Allah azza wa jal and then Allah will say he will forgive everyone, except to people who have not been who have cut ties with one on
either when was the last time maybe some people have stopped talking to their own parents? Or maybe their own brothers or sisters? Maybe because known in our countries may Allah forbid inheritance problems. Some people who has cut ties with their family members because of some money Mark mostly moneymatch matters or whatnot, mostly mostly money matters. Start talking to and start talking to ankles. My mother told me if I were to talk to her, she will no stop talking to me. My mother told me my father told me and now having problems amongst families because of some
the first thing is not only that of the belly, this is why I said the first thing is that of the heart.
The Prophet Muhammad Ali saw to someone he says about the I had the I in the Quran at the LA Coliseum. Okay, Makati Bahadur leadin, amicably con la la
la la quinta de Pon CM has been prescribed that upon you. It has been prescribed on people before you that you may attain Taqwa. This is the purpose of fasting. The main purpose of fasting is to attain Takota Comins piety. And where did the prophets point with his finger? When he says about piety? He pointed somewhere in his buddy about turquoises a decoy stalker is here by he is here but it is here and he pointed somewhere where did he points? He pointed towards the heart. He did not point towards the belly when you're fasting Yeah, because you're fasting is like I'm hungry. But the Allah says fasting so that you may attain Taqwa you may attain piety righteousness, but the Prophet
pointed to his heart is a Stocco Hona piety is here. The purpose of Ramadan is that you cleanse your heart. You purify your heart, you attain Taqwa Taqwa is IAD
Right. And he's that come here.
I'll give you an example of what taco means because he missed okay, what's piety? So, EOD is here. In a in a land in the field, right there's a field and in that field, there is broken debris. You know, maybe broken glasses and and thorns. Right? And er is here crying.
And then And then about yet about Yeah, the father. Yeah describing is grind
grind, you know, because because a lion is coming to to attack yard and there is glass broken glass and debris and and thorns and right. So so about yet is coming barefooted and making it even worse right so I'm I'm I like to pray these things. He's barefooted and Eon is crying.
is crying and there is a line coming about Yan is wants to save his son what he will do.
What would you why would you why would you because you have glass and broken but your son is crying? What are you gonna do?
He does not care he's gonna go on jump he's going to
glass or debris or forums or what he does not care is care about his child is going to jump and save his son. All right. But when you walk
I like to I'm very visual, right? So I like to visualize things and I like it to see you know sometimes so that you can understand when you have what I asked in the what I said let's say in this field of God, glass and Ashok eonni, like forwards and stuff and you want to walk you want to cause that feed you What are you going to do before you put your your foot you're going to look where to put your foot. This is safe. Yes. Not safe. Not a go right? Yes. Safe. Yes, go Bismillah. And then before you put your foot, you see where you put your foot so that you don't harm yourself. That is taqwa.
That's Taqwa. Thank you, Zack Allah.
That is piety. Before you do something, wait, is this Hala? Is this haram Halal Bismillah haram back, back off. Before you say word before you're writing email before you send a text is this right? This is wrong. You know, this is what taqwa
and the Prophet he pointed to his heart. Taqwa is here Taqwa is here sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So there are certain fasting people. And excuse me, this is very tough. And I need to say this because it's often
On the Quran and the Sunnah and the Hadith, there are certain fasting people who are cursed by Allah. And I will give you the evidence from the Quran.
This is not a joke, and please those who are not here this video will be posted on on social media inshallah to Allah, or at least take the message and go and inform other people about this. There are certain fasting people there, they're thirsty, they tried to collect other but instead they're collecting Letna from Allah azza wa jal, they're collecting couriers from Allah subhanho wa Taala
because they have deserted their family members or or whatnot are some you know, brothers or sisters or
uncle's or what they have not spoken to. They have cut ties with those people for more than three days. Why three days because this hadith that says the deadline you have three days, and the best person is the one who start Sudan first.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says and so what Muhammad by the regime, for hell as a tongue in cheek, our Latham to vsido, Phil
to FSI to fill all of the water PacBio our hammer comb, hula, you can lean Allah and
the under whom Allah he says about those who cause corruption on earth. And they cut the ties of kinship were to cut them
they cut the ties of kinship. Hola, Erica, those among those are those who have been cursed by Allah subhanho wa taala. They are cursed by ALLAH SubhanA This is a solid Muhammad. And I'll give you an example from the life of the prophet Muhammad Salah Allah and He will sell
because Allah in Swarthmore, he has in fact ordered us to forgive one another. You may tell me and I've got this and I mentioned this in fact, in one full hotbar one day and some people who came to me and he said, but you don't know what they have done to us. They have really caused Jani hammock in our family, they are they have a segregated our family, you know these people this
I didn't tell you to to forget I said forgive forgive it is within your control.
What would you do? May Allah forbid, if someone my brother was to accuse
your own daughter of something Hara and she's innocent. She is innocent. And someone I'll give you I'm making even more like
luring for you. Not only that this person accused your daughter of doing something haram and she's and she is. She's innocent. You used to support financially this person.
You supported him. Yeah. And he used to pay for his school he used to pay for his food used to pay for his transportation and to pay your back he goes around spreading rumors that your daughter has committed something haram what would you do?
You will stop everything. You will be angry you will this is how you pay me back house. Is that what Sonny? Said for the ad I have to get the bed. Is this how you pay back the sun?
This happened to Abu Bakar
the story really went No.
And whose daughter the wife of rasool Allah, the daughter of somebody who sent them the daughter of, of the Abubakar
they accused her of stuff of Allah committing adultery had it as if we call it the slandering of Aisha the very well known story. The slendering of hi Isha and Aisha, she's the wife of Rasulullah. could she do something like that? Oh, the Willa. So what's this man Mr.
even harlot even further behind
Abu Bakr used to support him financially.
He used to help him.
So this man this
mostly he accused because there are certain people who accused her Isha amongst them in the first day was the first Jonnie slendering was started by the hypocrites,
who started by by by the by the hypocrites, and then it spread among some of the believers as well.
But later on those who uttered the word of slandering, they were they were they were lashed.
Because they had no evidence. So amongst them is this man by the name of
think I know what you want. Here just here. Yeah, yeah. Oh, you're right you're good. You're right.
Exactly There you go. I speak the language my salah
So what was I when container rendering of ice just landed on
here we go there we go arrow all right
You're good now okay good so when I was I said with Asia
he was taking care of Abu Abu Bakr Are you following me my brothers sisters? The sisters are here but they are okay I feel bad that I'm giving candies and chocolate to the brothers but this is how but us How about us give their husbands I give the husband the husband will give them inshallah to Anna okay
so what happened? He was so angry he was so angry that he stopped he stopped his help. He stopped his financial support.
Then Allah subhana wa Tada revealed the iron insalata mu
well yeah, for Warriors follow Allah to hit buena AMI, Phil, Allahu Allah.
He says, I shall I shall I shall I shall. Allah is standing in the area and so I know let them forgiven pardon. For Yes, Rafa. Yeah, I flew from the name of Allah. And I flew. You see, Allah has beautiful names. He has the beautiful name of a web Allah for Allah far, very soon. On the last day nights of Ramadan, you and I are going to be making this dua to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to accept you know, our Ebola in the in the last night the 10 nights of Ramadan speech related to because I should also Allah and he told her say Allah Monica she put out for for for ANA using the name of Allah Allah who don't want faces the sins. So Allah is saying let them pardon. Well, yeah,
for what Yes, follow, forgive and let go. Don't you want Allah to forgive you?
So Abu Bakr says, I shall I shall forgive, I shall forgive. This shall answer your questions to those who have been having problems with the family members not talking to them cutting ties, we know for so many years I tell you look at us all Allah, the Prophet of Allah his wife, they use their of slandering above Abubaker her you know the Father, and despite all that, he let go and He forgave and not only that, he went back and he resumed his financial support. A Na Na
yes the other one he got lost because ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada you know, revealed
for the innocence of eyeshadow dilemma and how Allah so He got whipped
but Abubaker forgave and
Allah subhanho wa Tahara
or the Prophet Muhammad Ali, so to Sudan, look at this hadith, very, very, very dangerous.
Man has a whole focus on Earth. So Mohammed the Halima
who deserves his brother for more than three days and he dies he shall be thrown in her fire.
Yeah, and you cut ties for more than three days that's why I said the deadline is 72 hours.
Go and make that move first. Go and pick up that phone first. If he hangs up, you did what you're supposed to do. You go and open that door and say sir mighty come Ramadan Mubarak or eight Mubarak. If Allah MSF. If Allah Allah Allah, Allah, may Allah forgive us all.
If that person refuses to forgive, that's his problem, but you did you did your job, so that you're not amongst those where it may Allah forbid that if you were to die after three days, we don't want to be told to hit fire. That's why I said no fasting will be accepted. No man, I just said Matt fastI but no, no, this will be accepted. If that person has cut ties for more than three days. Go on the rush and fix that problem sha Allah who died
Ali about the Allah Allah Wa Al Hassan Ibn Ali, Al Hassan, the son of Allah Allah. He used to tell his children Don't be friend, those who cut ties with their kinship. Don't befriend them. Why? I saw them that they are cursed.
In the Quran, in more than one area, they are cursing. And those who cut ties with the Allah will remove baraka
from their lives. Whereas those who keep ties with the kingship, Allah will put Baraka in their life.
There is this really beautiful Hadith with some man, he says, Yes, hola. My family, they harm me and I'm good to them.
See, it's not because they am good, they're good law. They harm me. But I'm going to them. Should I still keep the NAM give ties don't get it.
I'm not saying you're free, befriend them and go to them and have that I'm not saying that but just don't cut the ties A salaam salaam Salaam Alaikum.
So I don't want again sha Allah who died i This is very, very important. So the first person or the first category because I don't want to make it too long. The first category are those who cut ties for more than three days.
And I mentioned the Hadith of the Prophet. So Sam
regarding in Oman, ha ha ha focus on that. And also the Hadith that says that the ML go up to Allah azza wa jal every Monday and Thursday and Allah azza wa jal will hold will forgive everyone every more hate every Moorhead every believer, except two people who have Chanel will have graduates amongst one another and they start talking to one another Allah which are the angels stop their deeds Stop stop you and you're praying everything but nothing is accepted until humans entity you reconciliation between one another and then Allah subhanho wa Taala will look at those and you know accept them from that's number one. Number two, somebody who's fasting
but not fasting for himself is fasting for others.
I'm fasting, but I'm not taking my reward for myself. I'm giving rewards to others. I'm giving Hadia to others. I'm gifting others with my own reward. What does that mean? Those who go out backbiting and backstabbing
riba an amoeba Amina is fasting, but he's given the also to others.
Reba Winona Nima
she said he said she did he did
you know, I'll tell you how dangerous this thing is. Because sometimes we deal with my brother and we don't even realize that we're doing it.
We don't realize the Sheffy now there are certain instances where it is not considered to be Riba. You know, you come to me my brother and you say this. I know this guy came to ask my daughter for marriage. I don't know him but you know him. What can you tell me about him? This is not considered the Rebbe NEMA or there is this imam who leads the Salah, but we know that I know he know that he does haram or he does Jani is not there or he commits haram and we need to inform people about this Imam you know he's the Imam of the masjid May Allah forbid right? So this is not considered Riba and Nima for instance. So for instance, Abu Bakr Siddiq.
I'm about to say that my brothers and sisters and
you know what I want you to do now before I say that story, it's a beautiful story. Want me to share it with you? It's a beautiful story when we share it. You all stand up
the all vaccinated ISU, so you hug the person next to you. Yeah, just hug each other. You hug your son haggadah? Yeah, it's Ramadan. Mubarak.
Love. It's read today's read. Anyway, hug the person next to you Zack Lufia that's all I want. Hey, wow, that's all Isn't that beautiful? Zach, I'm lucky thank you so much, Monica Luffy
I'm not only a public speaker but I've got a certification from a from a trainer now the scene psychology because I teach this and I learned this in psychology people can only be listening to you for less than maybe 1520 minutes you can grab their attention for no more than 20 after that because they will they will fly away so you need to do certain things to keep them back and bring them back so you know maybe I make people hug or maybe sometimes they do get you know you'll do push ups or or jumping jacks or whatnot you know anything that brings you know to get that you know the break the ice and bring them back so I'm about a normal they needed to travel they hired they had a maid with
them, you know who to cook for them.
So when they reach this area, and then Omar Baba Tala Rama, where's this guy? Where is he? We don't We brought him with us to cook for us. She says I was in the hotel. Hello nowhere. He says he's a sleepy man. He's sleeping. He's a sleepy man. Wake him up. Let him cooking. Okay, so he cooked and then they said go and ask for Salah.
Join us for food. So the man went to law school of law. So he also law Bahama, they invited you.
Barbara told him go and tell them they've already eaten.
The What did they say? says they've already eaten. So the rest of us we have a solid love. What do you mean? We've already eaten with inviting you? He says you ate the flesh of your brother.
You ate the flesh of your brother. What did we say? You said about him? He's a sleepy man.
Yeah, and the in the hospital know when they'll Albina when he loves to sleep. Even that is considered to be backbiting.
Here's another another
incident that happened incident happened to show the Alana with one of the wives of Rasul Allah is a sitter and then the prophet who was talking about one of his wives Zeno and then i She says her like this, she said this, just with her hand. You know, sometimes we do like with our eyes, three Shree eyes what?
You know, you don't, he didn't say a word, but even that is considered to be Riba. The Prophet said, What did you do? She didn't get this? Yeah. And she's short. She's short.
The daughter of Osama Hapa what's her name?
And then the Prophet told her what you did, if it was to be mixed with the ocean, the water of the ocean, it will fill it with, you know, with with this mess that you have done. Just this, this little action that you have did. If he was to be mixed with the with the ocean, it will change the color of the ocean of water.
This is something very, that's what I said. Yeah, and you're fasting, but who's getting the fast the reward of you the person that you're backbiting?
Then Allah azza wa jal says, you know, don't eat the flesh of your brother. The Prophet Muhammad was walking with the sahaba.
And then he heard two people talking about somebody. They were backbiting the Prophet didn't say a word. And then they passed by a dead donkey. She ma economical, Mala dead, not even dead. Then he stopped he called the services come here come to see who was backed by thesis. Eat from this donkey
is a donkey who may yet come on yeah, and the donkey and dead and how long to eat from the dead. It says what you did earlier was more grave was more harm than what you're eating from this dead donkey. You're talking backbiting about your brother and sister.
Prophet Muhammad I just said I'm with the Sahaba they were sitting you know, about to eat food.
And then the man was talking to another man talking about another man doing riba doing me by backbiting him again, not in his presence, but in his absence.
The Prophet told him go back and rinse your mouth. The food wasn't even been served yet. Go and rinse your mouth from above.
There was a lot I haven't eaten yet. Yeah. And what did we eat? And then I will boy says, Now you ate? You just ate the flesh of your brother.
Hassan Busey Rahmatullah Lee one of the pious predecessors, hustling bustling, they, somebody came to him to tell him that, you know, somebody was backbiting he was saying this, and this and this about you. So I said that basically, he went and he bought some, you know, a basket of apples. And then he went to that man, he knocked at the door, and then he gave him a gift. He says, I heard that you were backbiting me, you will give him a headset. You will give him me good deeds, and I have no good deeds to give you SATA to buy you this presents this gift.
So you're fasting.
But you're talking about so you're talking about her and you're talking about him and he did this and she said, Oh, I
was sending messages. Did you see what she did you hear? And sometimes you may not even know you might not even be sure of what happened. But then he was just spreading rumors backbiting backstabbing. Did you rest assured that whatever you're doing you're only given hasnat with other person and sometimes I say Yeah, can you give him has not
so my brother's all you have to know about this is whatever you have generated in terms of good deeds.
It's gone to that person that you've been backbiting so this is number two. Number one is who?
The one who cut ties of kinship that's number one, who's number two, who's fasting is not accepted. On a by that? Yes, in the back.
Who is data?
Number one, number two, number three chef. Number three is somebody who collects collect Hasler during the day. At night he gives them oil, whatever he collected during the day
He gives it during the night
he's fasting during the day
did you ever do that the Sahaba used to say when you fast let your eyesight fast let your guys in the back are you guys watching stuff or talking about Hiroshi? Are you guys doing Reba Nima you talking about her and him and watching stuff because fasting is not just you know abstaining from food and water just so you know alright you guys I know I know I'm just reminding you hear me I love you guys you know you might
so fasting is not just abstaining from water and food it's also you know trying to you know, let your your day of fasting just like the day of real when you're breaking the fast yeah and the respect that fasting respect the fact that you know, this is what my dad this is cm and I remember when I said about cm cm is the purpose of it is to attain Taqwa is to attain piety is to attain righteousness. This is the purpose of it. So the righteousness is in the heart. In the heart, let us clean this heart. Let us try to purify this heart. If the heart is not pure yesterday, I can be talking to you all I want kids, boys and girls.
I remember a long time ago in dismissive.
I had youth your age, and they have programs with them. Every week, we used to have programs for you know, just like your age. Today, the same kids that I used to hamdulillah they are today they are leaders of many multinational companies here in Canada. Mashallah. coetail nebula, just like you guys, some of them are married and have six and seven kids. From this misery this Majid was my home at some point time that when I first moved from the US to Canada, so when I see you, it just reminds me of a long time ago in 2002.
Okay, I love you.
I'm a habit cutter who? Crafty who? Isn't cutter. Okay, good. So I'm okay.
Like I said, the third person so at night, and I don't want them to screw you know, screw up stuff.
You know, it's a verb, right? It's a verb. It's a verb, you know that fastI. to corrupt to school to
to mess up the fasting, they have to mess up the fasting.
Why? Because maybe you couldn't be watching something not right. And here you're fasting but what's the point and you're watching something you're not supposed to be watching or talking about something not supposed to be saying or
Yeah, and you're listening to something else was to be listening fascinating. Just not again, not just abstain from food and water. Fasting is a comprehensive term. So my brothers and sisters, these are the three people you know the three categories of people, whether by Allah subhanho, wa taala, will not be accepting that a bad debt than a bad for Hara Hara to Allah. We need insha Allah Who Tada does not Ramadan is not the rasa. This is the beauty. What after Ramadan, etc. Allah azza wa jal he can you know the the way he does his things? It's you know, it's really marvelous. When you think about things you have, you have Ramadan, Ramadan, it's madrasa. It's a school it's good of
what it teaches you you know what we talked about last week? You know how to control yourself to control your whims and desires you know, your spiritual your spirit your your Eman, your indisposed your Subhanallah this this Sahabi always it's weak you know in terms of its relation the rate of but some some people said you know it's okay to mention it that this the hobbies to say I love hanger I love to be hangry and I love to be sick and I love to I love death and then he was asked why do you love to be hangry since when I when I'm hungry it has
this model of Ramadan and after Ramadan comes what
after show well after show what comes what
isn't it the preparation for has
this is the reason why we needed the Ramadan before Hass Ramadan teaches you something prepares you for hedge because hedge it's it needs lots of you know not only physical but it is also your spiritual you know side as well. So Ramadan teach you that spirituality and then prepares you for that which to come which is harsh. This is how it comes you know in Islam along with the Quran, so my brothers and sisters inshallah Tada I'm gonna end my talk I'm going to add my talk and ask questions and give you some candies inshallah Tada as well. These are the people whereby the fasting will not be accepted. Please share this message with others. Tell them about those mahalo Munna Mina
Mina mahalo Munna Munna Ramadan Allah mahalo morning Arabic we call them and mahalo moon, those who are deprived
those who are deprived from the blessings of fasting from the blessings of Ramadan, if you're having any Shahina any issues with your families that you have not been talking to for
Some time, please go and mend the hearts. Please go and reconsider. Yeah, that's number one. Number two.
Stop the backbiting and the backstabbing. Not only when you're fasting because remember fasting Ramadan is madrasa it school at the end eighth, eighth is graduation day, as is the graduation day. So don't just stop backbiting and backstabbing while you're fasting and after fasting yella, go back and whatever you have not done during the fasting, don't make it up during the breaking of your fast no stop back by teen stop backstabbing, stop giving hustler to somebody else. That's what you're doing and stop eating. Imagine eating your own blood brother, his flesh when he and he's dead, why he is dead, because the analogy here is the man that you're Backbiting is absent. His dad is absent,
he's not there. So when you're backbiting what you're doing is you're eating the flesh of your own brother dead. Look at the analogy. Look at the example Allah has given in the Quran so that a second person who's fasting is not going to be accepted. And the third are those who whatever they collect during the day they give it away during the night by committing you know, things that are haram, I ask Allah subhana wa Tada to help us to practice and to convey any quick questions
the first point about the mandate of the hearts or the cutting of ties of kinship
Okay, Zach, Allah, hey, that's a very good question. non Muslims. Okay, you know, when I say even with Muslims, somebody who's been harming you, they they're not showing respect. You know, and you say, I want to cut ties. We don't want to go to that extreme to be cutting ties. Yes, you need to earn you know, make them earn your you earn your respect, and you make them earn that respect as well. You're not going to allow someone to, you know, to step on you to, to ridicule you and to mock you, like we're not going to Allah is as he's right. So you need to be you need to live with the name of Allah and as he is, but at the same time, don't give them a chance, but stay strong, you
know, show your, your, you know, this is, this is why I am and I'm not gonna give you a chance to disrespect me. Don't let them disrespect you so respect them. So to be to feel that you're, you know, to get that respect in return, but at the same time, I'm not going to be friend them they're like meaning going out and visiting and doing things that I'm not going to go to that extent to that level, because I've only getting heart from those people. Yes, when I have a chance to give them mercy. I will give that Naseeha maybe, you know, ask about them, see how they're doing that, you know, call them on the phone and whatnot, but not to cut ties. This is when Muslims or non Muslims
are like, Oh my God
what do you have to say or advice about Muslims and family members not
the question is some family member members whenever I hang around with them, you know, my Eman goes down because they're just like, bad company. Unfortunately, Bad Company. Same thing applies to the what I said to that Brother Brother MASU. I said, you know, I don't want to be you know, when the Prophet says saw him, you know, attacking me will be friend, the one who is righteous, the moment befriend the moment where they are called Tamaki Illa. Turkey and the one who enters your home should be righteous, I'm not gonna let inside my home, anybody and I just met us today, Ella, some that come to my home. No, my home is my hour. Right? So I would befriend the pious I would befriend
the believers and know and select and filter who I know who I'm befriended who I'm being acquainted with, and those who have not, you know, need to be acquainted with but at the same time, you know, if I would need to take I don't want to cut ties. I don't want to cut ties. If I were to visit I will make it you know, like a short visit to do my dues to pay my respect and then move on, right? If you know and be careful if I have my children as well. I don't want them to affect my children, you know, so no, but I don't want to cut the ties. If I bring my children need to warn my children beforehand, come in and do my thing quickly and then leave or maybe make it on the phone or if they
need help send them some help. Maybe whatever help they may need as long as we don't cut off those ties. Yes yet.
cutting ties with somebody Nice.
Does that make it twice?
Zack clucking amazing question. What if you cut ties with someone that you've known for a long time? You know, you were younger and you cut off those ties is does that double the sin? You see? You didn't know I did not know that I was wrong to cut off ties with this person. But now I know. Now I'm gonna make that effort to make up if that person refuses to forgive that say I wronged you, let's say i It's my fault. I wronged you. I'm gonna go and ask for forgiveness. Please forgive me. If that person refuses. That's his business. How does I've done what I'm supposed to do? So
people that came to me says Even my dad my dad's been divorced from my mother for a long time and he he deserted us he you know
we even when we try to visit him he doesn't let us in and this and this and that do what you're supposed to do you do your thing between him and Allah. That's your dad but you do your job. Last question. There was one a what photography Are you Yeah, he was before
I only have one more minute
fast with it. Okay, Zach Aloka Good question. Very good question. Somebody who deals with the river and in
fact is unfastened when he does we deliver
somebody who does would usery What did he buy? Right? He invites me to breakfast at home should I go or not? I believe there is no yes I will go I know I will go with many intentions. My first intention is man the hearts give advice. You know I don't want to cut ties especially if he's a member in our family of my member especially like I need them to see the true Islam the true image of Islam I'm gonna get your haram you care for you care for you care for you care for and not You're not Hello? Hello I anywho then you're the only moment and you're going to attrition that alone is only for you. I'm gonna but let's say I know this man. Let's say he does not eat halal. I know for
sure he buys food from this or then here is you need to use your judgment if you did say you only 800 food advocates that we have would that be helpful and this matters not so nice you need to make that ahead of time listen I only eat their behalf food please o'clock if we can accommodate that right so I would go because the buyer and maybe take a chance or take an opportunity to give advice or whatnot and that this is between omega for that person but I'm not going to cut ties with that person doesn't affect his fasting yet he somebody asked me this question somebody who does not pray any fast why why is he fasting he doesn't pray you know any and the prayer is everything so if the
brain is the pinnacle, and then this man does not fast maybe he shouldn't even fast at all. I say why actually why the five pillars of Islam now um he does not pray he is committing a major sin but don't commit another major sin an addict with another major sin there so you have two major sins not praying and not fasting now definitely his fasting is not going to be the same remember when we're talking about the first thing the first thing the armor the depression of the heart the first thing of the eye the first thing you know all these beautiful things that it's a bouquet man it's a bouquet of flowers. You know, it's just like okay, I'm fasting from dawn until sunset but then after
that what did you get from over you're fasting now I'm winning prayer and Vicodin and and these are the you know when you have the cake and then the icing of the cake right? But I'm not going to say what he doesn't he deals with rebar. He shouldn't even fast now let him fast Of course this is funnel daddy. Allah will guide us all right, Zach, I'm lucky about a coffee can we have you know only a few minutes in shallow tell me what your new year will do. Make your DUA in sha Allah because that is accepted at that at this time because you're fasting so make your diet in shot low to HANA as a common law should I ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless you I ask Allah subhana wa Taala
