Salam Alaikum. Today I want to speak to you about how the chiffon may deceive us in the month of Ramadan. Now, before you say how can the shavon deceive us? How can you influence us if I said I'm told us that the shell thing are tied up in the month of Ramadan? I addressed this issue in a previous video, so make sure you go check that out now getting right on to it. Three ways in which the ship on May deceive us in the month of Ramadan starting with number one, getting us to focus only on the physical aspects of fasting the parts they send them said Monday mercola czar? Well, I will be here on a Saturday he had yet another ama who was araba that a person who doesn't leave off
bad speech or evil speech and bad actions or bad deeds than Allah is not in need that this person leaves their food and their drink. So sometimes we only focus on that aspect because it is the most visible aspect of fasting, you know, not eating and not drinking. We may only focus on that when in actuality. I'm Oban. The blessings of Ramadan is supposed to they're supposed to permeate through all of our deeds. I mean, not only are we not eating and drinking, but we're making a special effort to improve the rest of our relationship with Allah Subhana Allah as well, whether it be your speech or actions, controlling our tongues controlling our behavior, when it comes to our tongues, gave us
a specific example. He told us that when someone comes in they they argue with you or they're trying to fight with you. What should we say we say in the slot in InDesign, first and foremost, to remind ourselves, right that look, I'm in a state of worship to Allah, I'm in the state of obedience. And I don't have time for this, I'm not going to argue with you, I'm not going to get into this because I want to make sure that I keep my speech pure, and I keep my speech good. And also, this is a reminder for the person who is trying to argue with you, you remind them you say, look, once again, I'm in a state of worship to Allah, I'm not going to get into this, right, I'm not going to ruin my
tongue and my speech by arguing and fighting with you. So whether it be our speech, or our sins, or physical sins as well, our actions, just like we have the ability to not eating and drink. Likewise, we use that ability to leave off other sins as well. So whatever weaknesses or sins that we may be dealing with, outside of the month of Ramadan, we use the month of Ramadan to try and treat those sins and deal with those sins as well. Number two, leaving off important deeds for less important deeds. Now, this is a very common thing that happens in the month of Ramadan, a powerful trick of the ship, and by getting us to focus on deeds that are less important, and leaving off more
important deeds. For example, once again, very common in the month of Ramadan, you may find someone who, you know, they make a special effort to pray, thought or they may, you know, stay up in the night and pray preppy Mr. Lane, but they may miss the Fisher prayer, or they may slack in their other prayers, their five daily prayers, which are far more important than that, are we in the pmla, etc, those five daily prayers, those are our obligations, and that should come first. Yes, I'm not I'm not saying don't pray at all. We don't pray pm and so on and so forth. But it should not come at the expense of those things which Allah has obligated upon us. So the first thing that we do in the
month of Ramadan, the thing that we focus on the most, is first and foremost, fulfilling our obligations, those things that are obligated upon us and leaving off those things, which Allah has made hot or impermissible for us. Number three, giving up hope. Now we know that getting people to lose hope is one of the main goals of the ship on how does this work in the month of Ramadan? Well, one of the ways that this may happen is that sometimes we start to compare ourselves to other people. And we say, you know, so and so they're, they're reciting so much Koran, and they're praying so much, and so on and so forth. And we look at ourselves, and we're like, yeah, I have, I have a
difficult time doing that. And so what happens, the ship on comes and he convinces us that look, we're just a bad person, we're just a bad Muslim. It's not in us, we're not good enough to do what other people are doing. Why bother. And that's why it's important that we don't compare our deeds to the deeds of other people. Rather, we focus on improving ourselves. So we compare ourselves to ourselves. So we compare how we are in the month of Ramadan to how we were before the month of Ramadan, as I said earlier, for dealing with issues and problems and sins before the month of Ramadan. We use the month of Ramadan to solve those problems and solve those sins. But whatever
we're doing in terms of worship, we make sure that we're doing more than what we were doing before before the month of Ramadan. And as the month of Ramadan is going on, we make an effort that every day is better than the previous day. But remember, even though it is that I'm abandoned, we are still going to make mistakes. We are still going to sin that is normal, that is going to happen. Don't let the shape on convince you to give up hope or that you're not good enough as a muscle.
You're not a good enough Muslim, like everyone else. We all make mistakes. We all commit sins, even in the month of Ramadan. So every time you slip up, make sure that motivates you to do even better as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Follow up a bad deed with a good deed and it will remove it and that applies in the month of Ramadan as well. Every day we are renewing our intentions everyday we're making a new effort. So keep on going until the end of the month of Ramadan and keep trying your hardest and Allahu Allah to Allah knows best. Take care, said Omar Abdullah he or what I gather
