All praises belong to Allah subhanahu Allah, and peace and salutations be upon the final messenger Mohammed ibn Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is his final messenger.
My dear brothers and sisters, all praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. For blessing us to be from amongst those that observed the selected feature
in JAMA this early morning, from the early mornings of the best of all months, the month of Ramadan Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about this month, say it shall who shall have Ramadan, that the best of omens is the month of Ramadan. And
he also taught us for the love of Allah He was seldom,
therefore the one who walks in the darkness of the night to the masjid, to observe this prayer.
Then, glad tidings be upon him.
Glad tidings of a bright light
that will be for him on the day of paella. Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those that are blessed with a bright light on the day of me and me. My dear brothers and sisters, this is the month of Ramadan,
the month of even greater action, the month of even greater application, the month in which we surpass our efforts of demands before a MOBA of the month before.
And when we say efforts we refer to bodily efforts,
which includes the efforts of our tongue and the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. As well as the activities, actions and efforts of our implicit meaning of our hearts, the ribeye death and worship of our hearts to should increase whereby our Eman become stronger in this month, and our taqwa achieves a greater value in this month, and our
dependence upon Allah subhanho wa Taala and ability to place our trust or rather this concept of power, and ability to place our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala becomes greater in this month, and our abilities to be patient upon difficulties become greater. During this month, all the actions of the heart grow as well, as our bodily actions increase as well. Our bodily actions increase with the stipulation of fasting this month. And with the recommendation of standing, it's night in prayer this month, my dear brothers and sisters, is a month of great reward a month in which you and I can build our agenda in a way we could not have built it in this way, in any other month. Besides this
month, we know that
this is a month in which Allah subhanho wa Taala causes the gates of gender to become wide open. And this is a month in which a person
trying his or her level best to ascertain a door specific to those who fast.
This is the video off of a video of perpetual water and the door which never allows one to be thirsty. This is a man which has a night known as the night of power, a night in which if one observes this month, and spends its night intending Allah subhanho wa Taala then Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant them a reward better than 83 years, better than 83 years. This is a great month of servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam. And that is why when we look at the life of the pious predecessors before us, we see nothing less than excellence. During this month, everything would become increased. And why not when they were taking the lessons from the best teacher, Muhammad
sallallahu alayhi wasallam and in the month of Ramadan, he was even better in his rabada Allahu Akbar. And how great
He was he in his rebounder throughout the course of the year, but they say whenever he became even better in his rabada during the month of Ramadan sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And how could this not be when he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was nurtured by wahi and Revelation, he was nurtured by the Koran. And his character was the Quran. And the Quran cited this month as the month of taqwa as the month of the Quran, as the month of fasting, La ilaha illa Allah, so we see nothing less from them in terms of excellence. And that is my brothers and sisters, especially now, when we have entered the second 10 days of the month, we've entered part two of the month of Ramadan, this is not a time
for complacency. Normally we find that we saw hyped up at the beginning of the month. And we start off well. And then as the days move, and the hours pass, and the second stick, and the stars roll on what happens to us, we start entering a slump, we experienced some form of fatigue, and we experienced like burners, and thus the second 10 days ended up becoming mediocre with regards to the first 10 days, and then a guilt sets within us towards the end of the 10 days because we remember the night of power, and then the hype of the last 10 nights and it's our hype in its right place, brings us back on track and we push
to cover the remaining days of Ramadan, we shouldn't let that happen to us this Ramadan, inshallah we didn't let it happen to us in previous from us. But if you did this, don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And let's realign ourselves and refocus ourselves and understand that this is still the month of Ramadan. And understand that this is a month of training as to become people of diligence throughout the course of the cause. My dear brothers and sisters, the same Allah we worship in every other month, other than the month of Ramadan is the same Allah we worship in our Mama, understand this. So whenever the evil of yourself and this is a month of understanding the
evils of ourselves, right? We see normally in autumn as we say when I let him into the unforeseen woman say he at our Marina, we ask a lot to protect us from the evil
of ourselves and the consequences of our deeds. This is a month for you and I to realize to realize our issues, our weaknesses, how vulnerable We are the gaps in our firewall.
For the IT people in the audience, the gaps in our firewall that Chapin uses to instigate us to take us further away from Allah. This is the man this is a message from Amanda Shapira tied up, Sophie that they are tied up. If you have tendencies that are not ideal, you cannot blame shaper.
This is a chance for you to step up and say you know what, I have these issues get a pen and paper out and write them down. During the course of the I overlooked the since he upon now it's a chance to return to Panama it's an issue that I have. It's a Do I have to shut SharePoint instigates me through these doors? mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala
and that if I Allah says after telling us that we supposed to leave had on food and drink and marital relations from federal till sunset for one month, Allah says you read the law
or are you ready to become a nurse that Allah has difficulty for you? allowance ease for you. This is the difficulty This is ease the benefits that you can get doing this far outweighs the benefit of eating and drinking and quenching your desires for you and I, we were born to live to beyond the grave, not to the grave. We were born and put into this world for the hereafter for the hereafter. So this realization, or we have an opportunity to acquire this realization in the month of Ramadan. So brothers and sisters,
take stock. See what you've done during the first 10 days and see how you can increase what you've been doing. And don't lose hope for what's been lost. Don't lose hope. Because actions are judged by their endings. Right. You're as good as your last performance as they say. actions are judged by the end you don't lose hope. seek forgiveness from Allah for what has passed. And let's make amends for Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Most Merciful some actions which should try and bring into your day and make it a daily practice. So it becomes part of
All of our lives before the end of this month, is to ensure the two locker ads before
the tour occur.
There are many stories from the pious predecessors before us of how they were forgiven only because of touriga act they would offer in the darkness of the night when others were asleep before the time of ledger kicked in with Allah subhanho wa Taala descends to the earliest heavens.
And Allah who is a solid,
totally independent cause unto you and me who are totally dependent help me into a belief or two, why is this someone who has done those major sins
and they want to seek repentance so that I can accept the repentance. Hellman Mr. Ruda is the anyone who's consistent with the minuses and has done some major sins, that they may seek forgiveness and I'll forgive them
helped me in say in in therapy, is this someone who needs something, someone who's going through difficulty, someone who is in need of something you living in this life This life is full of needs.
And ups and downs and trials and tribulations? Is this somebody who needs something
that they can ask and I will give them
a lot for this is not a seller, that you and I who believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and accepted the prophecy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and believe in the last day should ever live up. Never.
We should never live without how we love a law.
A guest knocks on our door at 4am in the morning, what would we do? And we love this guest
our child knocks on our door. Our wife knocks on our door we carry on sleeping now. A good friend calls you at 4am 4:30am Mashallah. The cold temperature is now
six o'clock, that anyone shall have the fast in Australia. Early breakfast and early dinner right now we just skip lunch. So issue there.
Who wouldn't open the door brothers and sisters. This is Allah subhana wa.
Allah our Creator, our nourishing our sustainer our maker, the one who gives us life The one who gives us death, the one who gives us the ability to breathe even though we sin even though our worship is a weak man who Allah even though we complain and complain and complain, he shows upon us blessings and blessings, the blessings of Allah He, it was another human being you and I will not be worth mentioning today. The way we behave, but Allah gives and gives and gives, and he is calling unto us even though we are dependent on him. We are in need of he is not in need of us. Allah he also does doesn't increase the majesty of Allah, our disobedience or decrease the majesty of Allah.
And even though he calls unto us never leave this to Raka make dua to Allah in this one video Allah make me perform this to look at for as long as I live as Allah, seek assistance from Allah.
That as I wake up in Ramadan, let me wake up outside of Ramadan.
Then ensure my dear brothers and sisters that you bring into your timetable too soon and
bring it into your timetable. The most beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala never left this.
And Allah told us that if you want the love of Allah and if you want the forgiveness of Allah towards the end of the fourth Jews factor be Rooney follow Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and he never left the sooner to before.

in this current vocations that if a person resides them, you will be protected to this evening. And if he recites them in the evening, you'll be protected to this morning in this car. That if you recite them and you die in that day you will die upon Islam and Allah and if you decided at night when you die in that night, you will die upon Islam and Eman inshallah

be the best of justify.
Going to sleep with our slates wiped clean, waking up with our slates wiped clean.
We can carry what has put you in a deception of your Lord, who is carrying
the anchor of the morning in the evening.
And in the month of Ramadan, try your best to feed someone everyday you break your heart, this was the way of the giants who walked this earth before us giants upon whose shoulders you and I tried to walk upon. We know from the Sahaba even Oh my God allow me to make sure that a poor person would would would break his fast on his table. As some reports have come to us. We are together as a team in general. And there are many from the Sahaba who practice this. If you cannot, then there's so many countries that have their allies will lie he made the world a corner as we say in the Arabic language. Allah Allah mazovia he's a corner every everybody you know, in a corner everyone meets up
Right. There's four people who don't know of now we know that we know of the plight of organizations on the ground and they inform us and they say it's easy for you donate this much. We'll do the rest.
You can make sure that a family breaks fast upon your donation upon your giving for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala every day
and everything for the rest of the year. In these poor countries. It doesn't cost much $2 or $3
This feeds an entire fan.
But this is the month to start to get the ball rolling. You know, when you're on a cycle, you cycle it so hard that when you stop cycling, what happens to the wheels, they can't even rotate. The cycle doesn't stop, right?
Even though you've stopped pedaling. That's what you got to do in this month, you got to cycle so hard that your bicycle keeps on moving to the next level.
That's how hard you have to push yourself brothers and sisters

Right let's cycle hard to gain some good momentum, some good calories.
Right? So these are very few events that I've shared with you something that won't take time from our day in our life that it was agreed upon locally, amongst animals best, everything correct. Said is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's perfect at any mistakes or from myself and shirvan we have lots of kind of words and acceptable fauja except this reminder. May Allah Subhana Allah accept our Ramadan, our standing, our fasting, our recitation of the Quran, our supplications, our invocations, our charity, our tears for his sake, may Allah make every tear shed during this month a means of extinguishing flames of the hellfire. And we Allah make us from amongst those freed from the
Hellfire before the ending of this month, and make us from the people of taqwa had Allah Allah Allah Salallahu Salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ultramarine Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
