Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam may Allah subhana wa Taala bless you all may Allah bless our Ramadan and I pray that you're doing well I am speaking to you all, from Sydney, Australia with today's episode number one of our series this Ramadan moments with Allah subhanho wa Taala in the book of Hadith compiled by Imam Ahmed, and also in other books of Hadith such as the one compiled by a member to media as well, there is a narration upon the authority of Al Harith al Ashbury, and he reports that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded Yahia even Zakaria to practice five things and to command
Belleau Israel to practice upon them as well. And he opens a Korea almost delayed on acting on these commands and sharing it with Benu Israel. Until recently, he Salam spoke to him and said that Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded you towards five things and commanded you to relate them to Balu Surat, Al. And if you don't, then I will. And your husband's a Korea said, Teresa, that I am afraid that if you relate to them, this instruction that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave to me it will be a means of my destruction or that I will be severely punished so immediately, yeah, havens a Korea gathers Balu Israel in beta mock this, and a large gathering arrives, and they sit on an elevated place. And he
commands them towards that which Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded to, and it was in the form of or number one Tauheed, which is the worship of one, Allah subhanho wa taala, and then the Salah, and then the cm, which is the fasting, and we are also in the month of Ramadan and fasting. And then he commanded them towards Southern and being charitable, worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala with their financial standing and material well being. And then he said, and I command you to the fifth thing, and that is the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala as SubhanAllah. And then he goes on to say that I command you to this fifth thing that we can which Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded him to
practice and relate to Israel, because it's similar to a person who is running away with an enemy, or a group of people.
This group constitutes this person's enemy chasing after him. And he's running away with extreme fear, no doubt looking over his shoulder, because he fears this enemy, this enemy is vicious, this enemy intends this person. And then this person arrives at a
at a castle
at a sanctuary and he enters the sanctuary and locks himself in and as such he is thoroughly protected. So he says that this is what vicar does for a person who lives in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa taala. And in this particular case, no doubt keeping their tongues moist, with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala that this vicar becomes a castle a century, a means of protection for the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala and older brothers and sisters in Islam she upon is a great enemy to the son of Adam and Allah subhanho wa taala. He tells us in the Quran in the show final Akuma I do want you to who I do that in the Shavon to you is an enemy, so take him as an
enemy. How do we take your gun as an enemy? If we were told that outside of our homes or in close proximity to our children, there was an enemy what would we do? Right we would ensure that everyone was in the doors were bolted shut, the windows were tightly locked, we'd have the alarm system on we'd have the cameras rotating and monitoring,
you know, every spot and we would make sure that we have eyes on the blind spots as well. Why because there's an enemy and we fear this enemy. So he Allah subhanahu Attallah tells us that shame is an enemy so take him as an enemy. So here we see Brothers and Sisters in Islam Subhanallah why we should be doing liquor it's a natural response to us understanding that we have an enemy in the form of shame upon also Brothers and Sisters in Islam Subhan Allah in the Quran in the final testament and we are in the month of Al Quran, the timeless miracle, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
This is his miracle and he left and his vehicle remains with us in this Quran. Brothers and Sisters in Islam Allah subhanho wa Taala when He commands us towards vicar, he tells us
To do it abundantly Subhanallah He commands us to many things in the Quran but when it comes to vicar, He commands us towards vicar in abundance OETKER Allah the Quran Kalyan? Subhana Allah also, if you look in the Quran, the only act of worship that we are commanded to do after an act of worship is the SubhanAllah. Even after Hajj Allah subhanho wa Taala says, For either of the two minute seeker come first Kula because the Cree come a commotion across panela after you stand the plains of Arafah, you spent the whole day worshiping Allah with Salah with dhikr with dua with a stick far with all the different acts of of worship. Allah subhanho wa Taala says when you're done
with that, then move along and remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and eco wants us towards liquor even after
the verses in relation to Sora to Juma Allah subhanho wa Taala says when you're done with the Salah was solid to do math and tissue fill out what better home in fact Villa go out in the lands and search for the sustenance and blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala has destined for for you then what does Allah say, after the Salah, Allah is what guru Wahaca here and remember Allah subhanho wa Taala in abundance this is what we should endeavor to try and bring into our lives especially in this month of Ramadan, there is no better month to try and transform Ramadan is the month that helps us to become transformed so that we become the best version of ourselves so that we are able to
achieve our God given potential Allah opens the doors of Jenna shots because of Johanna moutains. The shell being given us every opportunity to be the best version of ourselves. So let us use this Ramadan to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala diligently let's put into into play some of the processes that will assist us that will remind us to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala this there will be some intelligent applications with authentic Africa in them as well and and they beep at certain times just to give you the trigger just to give you the trigger that over time inshallah enough neurons will be created in your in our minds that will help us to remember Allah subhanahu
Attallah internally without the external help but no doubt until we get there. You know, achieving and getting some external help. Is is fine and also Brothers and Sisters in Islam put it as part of your timetable the morning at Carr remembrance of Allah, the evening of remembrance of Allah and is a wonderful book known as the fortress of a Muslim and Hassan Al Muslim a fortress Subhanallah we just talking about how vicar is a fortress right? A sanctuary a place of safety has no Muslim right the fortress of a believer there's an app which you can download this the door as in it out authentic and it has all the different doors even doors that we don't know which we can recite in
Salah it record in sujood so that we have variance
and we can we can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala in a way that you know Allah protects our worship from becoming a norm sometimes when we just worship with just one do I once application one vicar then sometimes it just becomes a norm whereby we do it without even focusing without even contemplating right. So if you have multitudes of dogs all from the sun and you've memorized them and this this is part of your thicker arsenal, then what happens now in ruku is different to as you can make Institute is different drives which you can make and then you can alternate between them so that it keeps you focused in your salon protects your Salah protects your your bed from just
becoming an either a norm whereby you just doing something automatically but rather you do it with focus because you have different drives that you are choosing from so I leave you with this message for today's episode.
Moments with Allah subhanho wa Taala and I love you all for the sake of Allah. Remember when your DUA until next time salam ala Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
