Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you all Subhanallah our month has come to its close. And we have one final episode in our series moments with Allah subhanho wa Taala and other brothers and sisters in Islam this episode has to be focused on the ending of Ramadan but the fact that every ending provides for us a new beginning and that is what Ramadan is about. It's about new beginnings it comes it transforms us and then it sets us on our path and way Brothers and Sisters in Islam for today's moment with Allah subhanho wa Taala I want you to take moments before Ramadan comes to an end and sit down and analyze
how you felt at the end of last number one or the Ramadan before that and what you did they were resolutions that you probably made a mental note of you've probably jotted down you probably spoke to your family and friends about things that you were going to put into effect after Ramadan after being inspired by Ramadan and then think about what happened thereafter when you know the next Ramadan came like this Ramadan came your resolutions from last number one, what's the gap between you and those resolutions? Did you execute them effectively? Or did you sort of just burn out
or procrastinate not get on to doing what you were supposed to do? And then this Ramadan arrived and now you feeling the same and you make a mental note with new resolutions and so on and so forth.
So, have a moment with Allah in which you sit down and contemplate you know, why did I grow from my last Ramadan? What is the reason for that? What can I do to ensure that that reason doesn't consume me again, so that I'm not prevented from growing as I feel I'd like to grow right now at this moment in the remaining moments of Ramadan once I feel so inspired, so motivated, what will prevent me from greeting Ramadan next year if Allah gives me life?
what would prevent me from achieving what I want to achieve in this moment right now. It's important we do that Brothers and Sisters in Islam because as a wise man said, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing. expecting different results. If you do the same thing, after this Ramadan, as you did after the last Ramadan, then trust me, Allah gives us life to the next Ramadan
nothing will change. You'll be you know, looking back at the year and thinking Subhan Allah there's so many things I wanted to achieve since last number one and I didn't end up achieving it. So think about this Brothers and Sisters in Islam use the remaining moments in our month to have moments with Allah subhanho wa Taala in this way, moments that really
show our sincere desire to achieve it's not an infatuation that we have with the moment that we're in, but we sincerely love Ramadan and love what Ramadan has done for us because love is substantial. Love is substantial. Infatuation isn't substantial, it comes and goes very quick Love is a true emotion. If you really love Ramadan and love what Ramadan has done for you, then you'll be ready to work moving forward. But sometimes we get brought down by a poor process, not understanding ourselves better burn out sometimes, right? So this is why I'm saying have these moments with Allah and figure out what worked, what didn't work, the things that didn't work, why didn't they work?
What can I do to ensure that I'm not in the same situation moving forward? It's been a pleasure being with you all. I'm speaking to you again from yet another airport, Manchester Airport it will be this time as I head to my parents to spend the day with them. May Allah preserve our parents in disobedience and preserve us odinist obedience. May Allah accept our Ramadan except our fasting except our recitation of the Quran except our two hours except our other car, except our seeking of knowledge. May Allah subhanahu Allah, writers from those who are forgiven during this month and freed from the hellfire and those who were written to be from amongst the righteous, and those who
are freed from the fire and those who are granted paradise the greatest paradise I mean, may Allah righteous from the successful and may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us many, many more Ramadan. So whilst we are in good health and a good state of faith, and I'll leave you with these two as and inshallah This is not a full stop, it's just a comma. Inshallah, we will continue our adult and youth development sessions after Ramadan OBT in a different series, irrespective of the series, right? Whenever we learn from the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. Those lessons provide us moments with Allah. I apologize for some unpleasant sounds you might hear around me It's
beyond my control. As I said, I was speaking to you from the airport just before catching the flight. I love you all for the sake of Allah. Please remember me, my parents, my family, and my teachers and my colleagues in the hour and those who are second
Those who have passed away and all our loved ones in your house as well take care everyone had a wonderful Ireland salam ala aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
