Allah, Allah, Allah Allah,

00:01:24--> 00:02:04

Allah, Allah, Allah wa mssql Mina, listen me below what he was caught was the robber robber. For in the Kamala nary law taqwa are servants of Allah, no children of Adam, indeed, all praises belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Alone, we praise Him and we seek his assistance and guidance and we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and the adverse consequences of our deeds. We testify the room serve Allah guides then can misguide and whomsoever He misguides, the nun can guide and we request praises and blessings upon the final messenger, Muhammad Ali Abdullah Saleh Allahu alayhi wa sallam, I bear witness that there's no one worthy of worship, besides one Allah and that Muhammad

00:02:04--> 00:02:27

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his best is his fine his his messenger. Brothers and sisters in Islam are servants of Allah and no children of Adam. Here we are at the end of the month of Ramadan, at the end of our month, at the end of our time, with the generous guests that visited us a few weeks ago.

00:02:28--> 00:03:20

It doesn't feel like a long time. It feels like he visited us a few days ago. But in reality, this guest has been with us. for several weeks. This guest came with the gift of fasting, and the gift of standing the night in prayer, and the gift of South Dakota, and the gift of the night of power and decree and virtue and the gift of freedom from the hellfire. This guest is so generous. It came with all these gifts, and in quantities sufficient to cover every Muslim home that this guest visited. And as the time has come brothers and sisters in Islam, for this guest to depart for another year. And as we experienced yearly, at the end of our time with this generous guest, we go through the

00:03:20--> 00:04:05

bitter sweet moments of the month of Ramadan bitter, because of Hana lights about to end and sweet because of the day of read that no doubt will follow the day of prize giving the day in which the servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala they receive the prizes. But things are not done yet brothers and sisters in Islam and we shouldn't be overwhelmed by the bitter bitterness of Ramadan, ending just yet why? Because we still have much to do. Yes, there's little time to do it. But we still have much to do, and have the lights of mercy from the Messenger of Allah upon us that actions are judged by the endings allow will judge our entire month based on how sweet the ending to our month is how

00:04:05--> 00:04:51

sweet we are to our guests at the end. No doubt it's all about the entire time with our guests. But Allah will look especially at our time with our guests. At the end of the month of Ramadan before the departure of Ramadan actions are judged by the endings and if our ending is strong, then glad tidings to the one who has a strong ending and a person who started strong but ends weak then we say Allah who Mr. And actions are judged by the endings and Allah subhanho wa Taala gives everyone a chance to redeem themselves. Those who started strong, they can end stronger and those who started weak they can end strong and all together collectively we can receive from the treasures and the

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the prices that will descend upon the Ummah on the day of eat, brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

From the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah will look at the best facet of our month and we must try and make it at the end. We should have the best one right at the end we should beat the best that we've already achieved. This is how we raise towards Allah subhanho wa Taala and compete with each other in building a great gender. Why do we want to do this? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala will look at the rewards of the greatest act of that month. The greatest sadaqa the greatest fast, the greatest throw away. When I say greatest I mean in intention and application and Allah subhanho wa Taala will apply it across all our nights of our month across

00:05:41--> 00:06:21

all the days of our month across all the same practices done during the month is from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is easy for Allah subhanho wa Taala and so we see some kind of law Ramadan comes with hope and at the end it brings us even greater hope that no matter what has happened oh seven of Allah here Abdullah and yeah, I met Allah or male servant of Allah and oh female seventh of Allah, you have a great chance to redeem yourself. So yes, we feel better that our month is coming to an end. But we should, we should convert what we feel into greater motivation and greater inspiration to push and push harder and engage Allah subhanho wa Taala with all our minds

00:06:21--> 00:06:44

and all our ability and inshallah get to the day of read with the strongest of all endings Bismillah to Allah, my dearest brothers and sisters in Islam, as we speak about the end of Ramadan from the greatest acts of worship of this month is a surgical tool fitter, which in today's day and age is approximated to be between two to three kgs depending on what quantity of foodstuff or staple

00:06:45--> 00:07:30

food item you are giving out. And if you want to be saved, and no doubt 2.5 is a good average of 2.5 to three you always save with this and and hamdulillah we have our local scholarship to guide us with more specific figures and more specific numbers. Most of us under lockdown won't have a solid this year, but we must ensure that the Federal is paid before what would normally constitute the time of need had the situation be normal. So be sure to take care of this brothers and sisters in Islam so that it brings to us the blessings of this other cultural fit, which is Allah subhanho wa Taala rewarding us for a sadaqa as well as using that many to redeem any minuses, any defects that

00:07:30--> 00:08:05

we might have had in any part of our application during the months of the solder battle fitter is another opportunity for us to end the month stronger because it brings to us blessings that covers any mistakes that we might have had whilst we were fasting or praying, and so on and so forth during the month. But if we delay in giving the total faith, then it will be accepted. But it will be accepted as a general sadaqa. It won't. What we understand from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is that it doesn't carry the same virtues as it carries when one gives it out before the prayer. So since we don't have the prayer this year, let us think about the normal time that we do

00:08:05--> 00:08:40

pray in Salah every year or had things been normal this year. You know what time would that be and ensure that we take care of it before that even better take care of it before the end of Ramadan. It was a practice of the Sahaba to give this other turtle fitter a day before read or even two days before it so there's no problem in this no doubt the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was aware of this, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he never mentioned this to be an incorrect practice. So this is something that we can manage before the day of read because, you know we could forget and Subhana Allah, if we don't want to get into a situation where we fall into regret. So in

00:08:40--> 00:08:53

these moments, take special care in finding out the best way to distribute your sadaqa to Theatre in your town in your city, in light of COVID-19 and the new circumstances in play and take care of this great act of worship brothers and sisters in Islam

00:08:55--> 00:09:34

with this set, so panela and now as moving forward, we have the day of read and the day of eat brothers and sisters in Islam is a day of celebration that Allah has given the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know in a recurring way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as we know from the hadith of Venice rhodiola and when he went to Medina, he found them celebrating two days or celebrating so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, what what is happening they said, these are days that we celebrate and have fun in and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said in Allah, Abdullah combi Hema Hiram in Houma that Allah subhanho wa Taala has replaced these

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

two days for you with two better days, he would have had and it will filter the heat at the end of the first 10 days of the hedger and then at the end of the month of Ramadan, and as we see Subhana Allah that Allah subhanho wa Taala brings these days of celebration for us at the end of intense see intense moments of worship at the end of seasons of worship. Ramadan is a season of worship the last 10 nights already

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

Season of worship the first 10 days of the hedgerow season of worship. And a love brings us these days to celebrate why celebrate brothers and sisters in Islam, because Allah is freeing us from the hellfire. Have fun, be happy, where you best celebrate on Earth. This happiness that Allah has freed you from the Hellfire May Allah free as well from the Hellfire, I mean also celebrate because Allah subhanho wa Taala has raised our ranks in gender and built for us our agenda and the fruits of our labor, fasting, praying, reading the Quran increasing in our recitation, increasing in our charity, increasing in how good we are with people reconnecting in a better way with our Lord, detaching

00:10:37--> 00:11:20

ourselves from the dunya all the rewards of this, Allah subhanho wa Taala is, is handing to us the fruits of our labor. Thus, our agenda is growing in leaps and bounds with Ella Hill Hamden on this day, and we are saved from the hellfire. And indeed, this is not something that you can pay with the entire dunya brothers and sisters in Islam. This is something that comes with the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So even though this deal for eat, we will be in our homes where I am, it's a 24 hour lockdown, so we will be stuck in our homes we can't go out. But brothers and sisters in Islam, the opportunity of eat, the results of eat the praises of eat are still intact. And this means we

00:11:20--> 00:11:57

should do everything in our capacity to enjoy the day to see the opportunity and not be bogged down by the obstacle. I don't know where you're viewing this from everyone has different circumstances and situations with regards to the day of read and what they can do and what they can't do. But for example, myself, we are under 24 hour lockdown, but it's in Portland upon us to live that day, to the best of our ability with, with amazing happiness, do things with the kids that surprised them. If you bought them a certain amount of gifts every year, buy them more this year, of course to the best of your ability brothers and sisters in Islam, I'm not saying go bankrupt. Everyone has their

00:11:57--> 00:12:31

own unique financial circumstances and situations. But you get the idea. It doesn't have to be a monetary physical gift. Maybe it could be you putting the phone away for half of the day and telling your children I am with you for 234 hours. It's just me Baba and the children are mama and the children. We're just going to be together and we're going to have fun. We're going to do a puzzle together build some structure together, we're going to do something that is even more different than what you'd normally do and make sure you bring the excitement of the day. And before I move on I released a video about making sure that we meet rubberband with the same excitement that we meet

00:12:31--> 00:12:43

Ramadan every year because the opportunities are still there in front of us the opportunity of freedom from the Hellfire, the opportunity of Alhamdulillah being having our previous sins forgiven, all these opportunities are there.

00:12:44--> 00:13:07

And now we have the opportunity. We've gone through Ramadan, we have the deal of read and the opportunity of freedom from the Hellfire and an amazing Paradise is still there for us and it will be given to us by the light Allah so we celebrate that day. Yes, we won't have Salam congregation, depending on the nature of your lockdown, but make sure you have the nice bath and you you you know people in many countries Mashallah there's no

00:13:08--> 00:13:44

the barbershops are close, the hairdressers are close, right, some of the men are starting to look like like some some form of Wolverine. Right? Because, you know, they don't have the headdress at their disposal, the above at their disposal. So make sure you know you buy yourself a pair of clippers, a pair of trimmers and hamdulillah you know, trim yourself make yourself look appropriate as you would do you know at the end of Ramadan before eat as you would do for the days I've read, bring out your best clothes. You don't have to buy one any if you can't bring out your best clothes that you have. Wear your best editor recite the tech beer. As soon as they say the moon has been

00:13:44--> 00:14:20

cited or the 30 of Amazon has completed announced the takbeer Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, Allah Allah Allah Allahu Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Allah Allah he'll hand announced the tech be and and make the children say out loud with you and make it something which is repeated every now and again throughout the night of eat. And then before they eat prayer before you gather for the prayer, if it if you capable of doing it if the scholars of your vicinity allow you to then do the prayer together. And then after eat open the presence with the children, right? wrap the presence it makes it more exciting for them. If you normally give them the gift without being wrapped, going unwrap

00:14:20--> 00:15:00

the present this eat it creates more excitement for them more, it makes them more interested and so on and so forth. So it makes the occasion better. You know, make sure you have that normal eat meal Yes, you know visitors are coming. But nonetheless make it whatever your special eat day is meal is make it and go through the day celebrating the day why it must be with what Allah subhanho wa Taala has told you to do to the best of your abilities. This is our day, brothers and sisters in Islam, whether we out whether we in we're going to show up and we're going to celebrate our eat to the best of our abilities and remember brothers and sisters in Islam, that the celebration

00:15:00--> 00:15:34

Read also happens not through disobeying Allah. So make sure that you don't bring into your own practices that nullify your Ramadan, like dancing and music and bad movies and so on and so forth. This is not what we saying I know some people say is the DFE tell us we're going to sit on Netflix and binge watch when he has a villa. Don't burn your Ramadan on the day which is given to you to celebrate the success of your Amazon. So be people have Taqwa because the dakoda Allah you worship the Ramadan is the same Allah you have to worship on the day of eating after the day of eat, but celebrate by building your agenda much more Subhana Allah when Allah tells us celebrate the read, he

00:15:34--> 00:16:13

tells us to do the tech beer. What do you do Kabila? Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar when Allah hit him, this is a better by doing this our agenda grows. So we celebrate by building gentleness and more. We go through the prayer. This is a celebration by building gentleness and more. So this is what we do brothers and sisters in Islam. When it's about celebrating eat, we celebrate by more building of gender and we stay away from any bending of our gender. So yes, bring the happiness but within the boundaries and guidelines that Allah subhanho wa Taala has set for he set them and he said tilka hoodoo de la sala chakra boo Ha. These are the

00:16:13--> 00:16:36

boundaries of Allah don't go near them. Don't go near them. But with regards to halal, Allah tells us Helen and he says kilka who do love Allah. Allah says this is what is halal. You can go right to the boundary, but don't cross the boundary. But with regards to Haram, Allah doesn't tell us to even go near the boundary. So remember this and that you have to do everything that is Hillel go right to its boundary.

00:16:37--> 00:17:11

But don't go beyond it. Because if you go beyond it you inherently and with regards to haram Allah says don't even go near the boundary. So remember this brothers and sisters in Islam. Now many questions are coming in with regards to the IID prayer, and what should we do? And how should we do it? brothers and sisters in Islam take guidance from your local dilemma. They will guide you with regards to this matter, and they have a greater right towards guiding you with regards to this matter. Don't be shopping for advice over the internet from outside chefs try and be united as a community in in whatever the scholars of the community have decided. Because the reality is, this is

00:17:11--> 00:17:49

a matter of difference of opinion whether the Salah can be prayed by itself or it can be prayed by itself. The Hanafi madhhab views solitude as an individual obligation, whilst the hanbali method views it as a communal obligation. Once the magic is in the Sharpies, they view it as a recommended prayer. So naturally from this, you're going to find different views with regards to the scholars, the Hanafi method, for example, by default, it doesn't allow the insula to be prayed in homes and in private places that are not accessible, especially if you don't have general permission from the rule of the land or if you notice the minority than the Mufti and share who is in charge of the

00:17:49--> 00:17:53

affairs of the community. However, we've seen in some

00:17:54--> 00:18:30

hanafy scholarly circles, some scholars have allowed it if you have four adult males in the home, and if you don't have four adult males in the home, then there's no Insider, because they use some of the statements that go back to adult life and mess around and allow the allow and that don't promote bring it by itself, but rather you pray general Salah, like Salah to Doha, and you increase in the prayers, if you normally pray to, you can pray for and this suffices for you. But if we look at the other math hubs, they allow making up the prayer at home either individually or with the family but not they talk about it as something being made up if you miss it with the masses, but

00:18:30--> 00:19:02

this year, it's different, obviously, because it's not a case where the masses are doing it. In some countries, there's absolutely no need happening in some countries. So what I'm saying is some scholars have said because there's no it happening then this issue of using the hadith of NSE, but Malik Krabi, Allah and whereby he made up the prayer, it doesn't apply because he made it up because he missed it what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Ours is a case where there's no need happening anyway. In some cases of hamdulillah people can gather up to 50 so they will have a communal lead based on 50 people and that makes things easier for the rest of the people to make it

00:19:02--> 00:19:30

up at home based on the heads of NSA and so on and so forth. The point is brothers and sisters in Islam, it's a it's a complicated matter to try and figure this out on your own. And Allah subhanho wa Jalla doesn't want you to figure it out on your own. Allah says Allah Allah Vikram Quintanilla, Allah known as the people of knowledge, who you don't know who are the people of knowledge, you should ask your scholars of your community, they know your community better. They know what is Allah and better for the community. And they will guide you the community in terms of what to be done whether to do it at home, whether or not to do it at home. If you do it at home. Should you do it

00:19:30--> 00:19:40

individually? Should you do it as a family? Should you have a hot bath? Shouldn't you have a hot bath, they will guide you appropriately so keep your local scholars busy, don't be calling

00:19:41--> 00:20:00

different scholars from other lands and and seeking guidance from them in this matter unless you have no one local then you can of course access an international scholar but explain to me your circumstance and situation. Now with regards to how to go about the prayer. If we our scholars allow it then your local scholarship will advise you as well but in general

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

It'll, the eat prayer will happen in the same way that it normally happens when you pray during normal circumstances. Okay, the two units of prayer with the extra tech beers depending on the method that you follow. So this is the advice brothers and sisters in Islam of this last Juma of Ramadan. And before I leave brothers and sisters in Islam, I want to highlight to you all what to come after Ramadan, what should be our way after Ramadan, the way forward after Ramadan because no doubt when we go through these bitter moments at the end of Ramadan, we feel all this motivation and all this inspiration, right? This is what we feel, we feel all this inspiration that we're going to

00:20:38--> 00:21:11

have to eat. We are going to be doing this and we're going to be doing that we're going to be reading so much and we're going to be doing so much salah and we're going to be doing so much fasting brothers and sisters in Islam. Come down. All right, be pragmatic, be practical, be excited, but don't be don't come up with something that will burn you out a few weeks after eat such that Ramadan becomes a distant memory and all your progress of Ramadan becomes lost. The month of Ramadan is different to the month of each month of show. While in Ramadan, Johanna may shut in show while it's open in Ramadan.

00:21:14--> 00:21:51

The doors of gender are wide open in show while it's different, right? The sharpener changed in Vermont in a while it's different. Also naturally your life changes for a man is going to go back to normal in show well. So understand have a good sit down with yourself before before Ramadan ends this year, and really figure out what your timetable is really based on how it was before Ramadan and the forecast of it after Ramadan and figure out what is practical because everyone has different timetables, different realities because of how many children they have, which schools they go to how they work and so on and so forth. Is it online on site Is it far close, everyone has different

00:21:51--> 00:22:27

circumstances. So have an understanding of what your timetable is. And based on that work out a practical way moving forward in terms of how you will manage the motivation you receive from Ramadan, moving forward until next Ramadan such that you are progressing. If you are doing a quarter juice a day before I move on and Mashallah a juice a day in Ramadan, you're not gonna do a juice a day after Ramadan. You might, but most likely you won't. Okay, so you got to go back, I was on a quarter, but I'm going to build myself up. So maybe I'm going to start doing half a day in Sha one and see how that goes. If it's easy, I'll do three quarters if it gets hard, I'll drop to a quarter

00:22:27--> 00:23:05

until it gets normal. Then I'll push up a quarter and one page if that's normal, a quarter and two pages if that's normal a half and so on and so forth. So you burn yourself in you take extra it will be a struggle but as it becomes normal when you increase as it becomes normal then you increase and you do the same with your Salah tm ln your fasting every Monday and Thursday and the three days of every month, burn yourself in so you can comfortably get to the next Ramadan Al Hamdulillah in a way whereby you are better off than you were before the last Ramadan. So this is parting advice brothers and sisters in Islam that I leave with you all may Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our month. May

00:23:05--> 00:23:23

Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our deeds. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless what remains And may Allah subhanahu Allah grant us the rewards of Laila to paddle and the rewards of being freed from the Hellfire and the rewards of our sins being forgiven. I mean, your lemonade May Allah subhanho wa Taala take us from strength to strength I mean your
