All praise God Allah subhanho wa Taala and please be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or testify that is the God except Allah. And I testify that Muhammad is the Prophet and the Messenger of Allah and encourage myself, a new Tofino about law as a law your Lord states in the Holy Quran or those who believe fee Allah Fie Allah the way you should be feed and do not buy unless you understate of Islam, and as Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention and says, All those who believe fee Allah and say what straight and correct
Allah subhana wa tada will fix your actions and allow forgive your sins, and those are by Allah and His messenger will indeed succeed. A great success. Our success my brothers and Islam is through the variance of a loss of Hannah Montana. Our success is three slim and our success is through taqwa. And we just came out of the month of taqwa,
the month of Ramadan, and about to start a new mom.
That comes after the month that came after the month of Ramadan
is about to end for us to start the next month after the month of July which is the month of the tida.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed us with the month of Ramadan, and after the month of Ramadan, the month of chawan.
And it's only moments from now we'll be talking about the preparation of the month of Ramadan for next year.
Allah subhanho wa Taala made us from amongst those who lived another Ramadan in their life, which means my brother in Islam, you'll stand before laws paddle down and after any new records that's been recorded another Ramadan in your life
that can determine your position from the Hellfire into the paradise.
And during the time of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam two companions, two men embraced Islam in which the Prophet Mohammed Salah la de wasallam had a sword, one of the companions to take care of him. So one of those two died on the battlefield, the other one got on his deathbed,
the other one got on his bed in his home. And the one that was taking care of those two companions who recently embraced this term Sony's dream that the one that bought on his bed in his home after the gender before the one that died on the battlefield,
in which he had the perception that many of us have
the highest level of the genders and the acquire that achieved if we bought on the better, you know, that's one way but there's other ways to
say went through the problem. Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
And speaking to the provider is Salatu was Salam in which he was amazed, was the one that got on his bed in his home amongst his family enters the agenda before the one that bolt on is the one that died in the battlefield. So the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam said,
Look, what's making you so amazed? What's astonishing. You didn't the one that boy on his bed, in his home amongst his family, didn't he leave an extra he they worship Allah subhanaw taala they only pray more during a first Ramadan.
They may add to his records. And
so when you're married Is that the one that God in his house in his hand on his bed amongst his family, one he later when he after the one that got on the pedophile the end of the agenda before the one that died on the battlefield, didn't need foster mother Ramadan. Maybe that gave him that leverage gave him the advantage maybe because of the extra Ramadan
maybe because of the extra Ramadan that this person had first of the last panel that had given him an extra advantage over the one that got on the battlefield.
So my brother needs them every single one of us has been blessed by our last panel Donna DC for them to experience Ramadan in their life for them to live their life. But in the
last hour, recall the verse the last panel dynasties in the Parana Karim
worship Allah subhana wa tada through the month of Ramadan ends
in which I'm 100% sure, Allah subhanaw taala didn't say worship Allah through the month of Ramadan ends Allah says wobbled Rebecca Hata Tia Kalia clean
continuation shipping Allah subhanho wa Taala until until death
Allah doesn't say continue
You're worshiping the Lord until the end of the month of Ramadan. No, I think we need to correct our perception he
we need to get revise that verse. Because when the month of Ramadan starts, we worship Allah until the month of Ramadan ends. But then when the month of Ramadan ends what happens there?
Continue worshipping Allah until he encountered death.
And this is the true character of a man. This is the true character of a believer. This is the character of a true believer that believes in Allah believes in the Messenger of Allah in the book of Allah and wants the most out of the month of Ramadan.
Rebecca has to continue worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala. And till that moment you die
until you put in the home. You continue worshipping Allah.
worshiping the Lord doesn't have a limit.
Once you have an expiry day, worshiping the Lord doesn't end
when your life ends,
but unfortunately so many Muslims worship Allah.
Ramadan, continue worshiping Allah until the month of Ramadan ends. What happened to those brothers and sisters that worshipping Allah in the month of Ramadan? What happened to those brothers that were coming to the message every single day and every single month every single night in the month of Ramadan. Brothers and sisters though I opened in the Chronicle every single day, every single night in the month of Ramadan. To those brothers and sisters that kept away from the Haram in the month of Ramadan. What happened to them right now after the month of Ramadan. Some of them didn't even pray. My brothers literally after the month of Ramadan, I had people come to me and talk to me
and say to me, I'm struggling to uphold and establish more praise. This person did not miss the prayer in the masjid in the month of Ramadan. Now after the month of Ramadan, he's struggling to pray the five daily prayers.
This person was waking up not for phazzer every single day in the month of Ramadan. He was getting off OPM
in a month of Ramadan every single day waking up at 3am or 4am praying to Allah subhana wa tada and then praying further in the masjid. Now this same person after the month of Ramadan is struggling to get off of
this person who's opening the gym every single day, every single night in the month of Ramadan, not the same person is struggling to even think of the plan to get him.
This same person kept away from the job.
He kept away from committing the harm in the month of Ramadan. Now this person is fully ingrained and embedded with the harem after the month of Ramadan. Why
did he read that verse incorrectly that Allah says
continue worshiping Allah until the month of Ramadan ends?
Panasonic correctly says or correctly that we understand it we
continue worshipping Allah until death encounters you
until you die.
Our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that very moment Allah subhana wa tada came into my system for them to get up and
get up and that was the first command from Allah subhana wa tada upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Mohammed gets up and Juan
Salam had gotten up and he says,
There is no longer rest after this day and Yes, he did not rest until the forest.
He did not rest. He did not rest before the month of Ramadan after the month of Ramadan during the month of Ramadan he did not rest. On the contrary, he only increased from his worship to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
He only increased from worshiping Allah azza wa jal so much say my brother and his thumb that his wife will say the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam every single not good enough for the salado
gearing up for the head to prayers. And how long did the province
praise one hour, two hours, three hours, no, in
every single night, in the month of Ramadan out of the month of Ramadan, more than half of the night.
So right now, in winter, with a minus 12 hours Your Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be praying that the Align the key and praise who will be praying the Lord for prayers, minimum six hours every single month in the month of Ramadan and outside the month of Ramadan.
The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam it was an early in the month of Ramadan. It wasn't early before the month of Ramadan. It was before, after and during the month of Ramadan every single day, every single month. That's the Prophet Mohammed Salah, praying to Allah azza wa jal minimum, six hours, six hours Can you imagine six hours standing in the middle of the night not during the day? In the middle of the night when you're tired when you fatigue when you longing to go to sleep? The Prophet Mohammed Salim is up praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala so much so my brother and his them there is an warfel say, though experienced the Prophet Muhammad says I can see the
noise every single night praying to Allah subhanaw taala until until his legs will start to Shiva. You know when he stands out long anybody standing there for me what happens? Your legs start to shiver because you've been standing for so long. You need to make a bit of movement in the V salado Sela will experience that every single month. And I just says I see that from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam every single month. So one day she tells amazon seller more no she tells him on messenger of Allah. You've been doing this every single night. Every single night I see you burning yourself. Every single morning she ever roaming he saw a boy standing and prayed to Allah
subhanho wa Taala during the month until your legs start to shiver. I could see shivering from standing. I could see your legs swell or messenger of Allah what do you do though and Allah subhanho wa Taala has already forgiven your sins the past and the future looks upon Allah look in the eyes of things.
Look at the minds of Isaiah, which is that's our mindset. biases. Monster is a lot more developed a lot more advanced. This is our mindset. Messenger of Allah, what are you burning yourself every single night six hours, minimum six hours alone um, how long he gospel one of the Sahaba says one day I saw the Prophet Mohammed sauce and I'm praying in the message during the light. This can bring in a lot of apathy. And it was just walking through the streets of Medina say went past the mosque and he saw the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praying in the masjid. So he decided to pray next to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we're talking about the novel prayer.
Not during the day, not fetcher. We're talking about the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam praying the PM, the pm pray in the masjid. So this companion stands next to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and he says I stood next to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam pray next to the Prophet Allah is salatu wa Salaam and what an honor to pray next to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam during the middle of the night, say says the provider is salatu salam was reading from Surat Al Baqarah. I thought to myself the provider is salatu wa sallam read half.
But the problem homosassa went beyond half Surat Al Baqarah until finished Baqarah he said to himself also the Prophet Mohammed Salah finishes certain batara how many pages is sort of the bucket of 50 pages you can imagine if the Prophet Muhammad SAW some results, not too quick, not too slow. The provider is taking two minutes, that's 100 minutes. That's about two hours in the base on the last and unfinished pseudotuberculosis.
And the problem, Amazon continued this companion he says I thought the perfect amazon seller is gonna read half a block, you know, it's becoming too much. So the problem Amazon's unfinished haapsalu on Amazon and continued until finished.
And then he said
he was gonna finish
and then get in and finish that's in the first record first.
Not the second, we're still talking about the first record in the base.
And you could imagine what's going through the mind of this companion? Okay, he's gonna finish. And then we saw some started with a surah after Surah Nisa, and nobody says unfinished furutani Sandy's companion continues to think that you know what now the problem homosassa is gonna require some sort of pseudo,
pseudo pseudo the makeup a quarter of the Chronicle, but it doesn't stop ever he does more and
more and this companion says the length of the record of the Prophet Mohammed Salah was as long as the problem homosassa lamb standing and reciting this word.
And then the length of the of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as long as the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim standing or reciting the sower and then the length of the second sujood of the first rock as long as the problem homosassa him standing and that's one way
or another you calculate and say you know what, doesn't make sense? Yes.
Yes, it doesn't make sense with Allah subhanaw taala everything is possible.
Because at the end of the day, if you think about it, two hours each day, what the entire 15 hours 24 hours
No is not even 12 hours. Well, Allah subhanaw taala can do whatever he wants this the blessing that Allah puts in no time.
So going back to the month of Ayesha, she sees the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam every single night. Get enough all the
arrows and arrows and arrows long. When the problem Amazon sellers pray to Allah and she sees the provider is Salatu was Salam in his salon in his culture and his devotion and the legs of the problem homosassa Lama shivering because of him, standing, because of the long standing of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, she says, or messenger of Allah, why? Why do you burden yourself? Why the overwhelm yourself? Why do you put yourself Why do you put more pressure upon yourself in Allah subhanho wa Taala had already forgiven you. You're guaranteed forgiveness. That's a you guarantee you guaranteed forgiveness, you're guaranteed mercy and you are guaranteed
agenda and not any agenda but the highest level of the agenda.
So what does the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reply back? He says, If that's the case, if Allah punto abdon Shakira if that's the case, then Sharon RBI, faithful servant to Allah subhanho wa Taala subhanho wa Taala had guaranteed me forgiveness, and Allah subhanaw taala had guaranteed me mercy and Allah had guaranteed me the agenda and the highest level of the agenda, then this is the time that I need to abhor myself I need to better myself I need to increase from my gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala
look at that monster.
Well, I just mindset which is our mindset. Allah had forgiven me, Allahu Akbar. How beautiful is there?
Dancing I'm sorry, but I'm talking about myself here. Imagine Allah informs your honor reveals to you that you know what you are forgiven that see how much
you're guaranteed forgiveness no matter what you did that say we're not gonna record the sin upon you. You know, I'm gonna do the next day I'm gonna sleep in the refrigerator. That's a good opportunity for me.
That's our mindset. The more advantage we get, the less disadvantaged we become.
But the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when Allah subhanho wa Taala guaranteed and forgiveness and guaranteed them the agenda in the Bissell Allahu alayhi wa sallam increased, increased from the salon
increased from the sacrifice.
increase from the worship to Allah subhanho wa Taala if yesterday I prayed six hours to Allah before Allah guaranteed me forgiveness. Today I'm going to pray to Allah subhanaw taala to show him a song of gratitude.
To my brother in Islam, Allah has blessed you with a similar blessing.
on a different level, where the problem homosassa was blessed with guaranteed forgiveness, the past and the future since Allah has blessed you with the month of Ramadan. What did you do after it?
Did you become an akuna abdon Shakira since Allah subhanaw taala had blessed me with the blessing of the month of Ramadan I'm gonna thank Allah subhanaw taala for the blessing of the month of Ramadan therefore after the month of Ramadan, I'm gonna be better than I used to be in the month of Ramadan was the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
Salatu was Salam. He was praying to Allah subhana wa tada sacrificing to
that moment that Allah guaranteed him the gender and guarantees and forgiveness increased. So we were sacrificing in the month of Ramadan
month of Ramadan
Kareem in the month of Ramadan good deeds and great worship in the month of Ramadan. Allah blessed you with the month of Ramadan What did you do out of the month of Ramadan? Abdullah Shakira there should only be I thankful seven to Allah subhana wa tada because Allah blessed me with the month of Ramadan Where's your status now?
What's your state
I'm sorry to say my brother's mister most of us including myself. We dropped we plugged with decreased
time four times in a message in the month of Ramadan. No we're praying once in the masjid after the month of Ramadan if we're reading 10 pages in the month of Ramadan every single day of the days of the month of Ramadan we really nothing from the Quran the Quran, with plans of Allah kuno abdon Shakira, if Allah has blessed you with this blessing that Allah made you from amongst those who lived another year another month to live the month of Ramadan, then you should be a lot more thankful and grateful to Allah subhanaw taala after the month of Ramadan insha Allah subhana wa tada the sign of gratitude,
the sign of appreciation,
which means what if the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was praying six hours before he was guaranteed forgiveness and now he's playing tenant of ours. If we were blessed by the month of Ramadan in the month of Ramadan, and what we've done in the month of Ramadan, it means up
To the month of Ramadan, we should do more than we did in the month of Ramadan.
Be a thankful thankful servant to Allah. Be grateful.
Be thankful seven to ally grateful seventh Allah subhana wa tada sha Allah subhanho wa Taala a song of appreciation. So Allah subhanho wa Taala gives you more time
as Allah subhanaw taala says, He thanked me more. I'll give you more.
Thank Allah. Allah will give you more. What more do you want to be pleased from your mo you want to forgive you more you want to elevate your position in the paradise. That's what you want from Allah subhana wa tada thank Allah, Allah who will give him more because Allah subhana wa tada is the most generous All Praise be to Allah subhana wa tada and please be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are testify that there's no god except the law. And I testify that Muhammad is the Prophet the Messenger of Allah, my brothers in Islam and the servants of Allah ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us from amongst those who are truly thankful seven Salah zoa gel and understand why Allah
subhanho wa Taala has blessed him. My brothers in Islam, we need to have that mindset of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and one of the primary reasons why we struggled to maintain ourselves and maintain our worships after the month of Ramadan. It's because of the mindset that we set our minds at the beginning of the month of Ramadan, when the month of Ramadan started, we set our mind I'm gonna get good. I'm gonna worship Allah, I'm gonna be good. I'm gonna pray. I'm gonna fast I'm gonna read the Quran again. I'm gonna keep away from the Hara, you've set your mind correctly, but you've put an expiration date and he said, You know what, I'm gonna stay along this
until the end of the month of Ramadan.
And he did. Exactly how you set your mind is exactly what you've done. But the problem that you did is that you put an expiration day
you put a deadline he said, I'm gonna get good. I'm gonna pray. I'm gonna fast I'm gonna go I'm gonna keep away from the hubbub. I'm gonna go with the good people I'm gonna do everything that's good but you put in your mind sir ends by the end of the month of Ramadan and you know what you got exactly what you intended.
That's exactly what you configured your mind and you said it this way and he did so well. So after the month of Ramadan, you look at you so many say you know what I'm struggling Of course you're struggling because that's why you prepared for you want to get from Sydney to camera 300 kilometers on a half a tank of petrol It doesn't work that way. You do that when you get to the city you didn't want to get a permit of 2030 kilometers but then you drove all the way to Canberra and halfway through the journey you break down and so what happened that's what you prepared for.
That's what you planned.
You prepared for half a tank you and a rich half a tank fill up that tank take an extra with you prepare yourself it goes back to
that mindset that's why you find yourself struggling and you say you know what? I was doing so good in the month of Ramadan happened to me now I'm struggling because you say you went away You prepared for the journey did good. Well done. I commend you for the ask Allah to accept that from me. But I'm sorry, you put a deadline there. You've set your mind and he said I'm gonna go good until the month of Ramadan.
Ramadan, that's how it is. Continue worshiping Allah until the month of Ramadan ends. Set your mind to Allah subhanaw taala says Rebecca had to Kelly again, continue worshiping Allah until you encounter death.
If you set your mind at the beginning of the month of Ramadan, that's a start from here. It doesn't end until the final end, you find yourself a lot better, at least a lot better than we expected. At least a lot better than what you thought of sama brothers in Islam. So Panama you look at it as if Ramadan was something from the past.
Ramadan was something from the past, Ramadan was only three weeks ago.
It's not something from the past. It's the past the current and the future. Your love should be Ramadan and Ramadan before Ramadan after Ramadan. That's our predecessors. You know what they used to do?
Prepare for the month of Ramadan, six months before the month of Ramadan six months. So if next year Ramadan is gonna be at the beginning of May and I start talking about Ramadan in January everyone's gonna look at me and say, Look, what are you talking about? This month for the month of Ramadan? Well, that's why I pray this is six months before the month of Ramadan prepare for the month of Ramadan. But then six months after the month of Ramadan, don't be supplicating to Allah asking Allah to accept their worship in the month of Ramadan. So they lifted up about 20 473 155 days according to the loonie.
Did you raise your hand stone
Except my worship in the month of Ramadan, the month of Ramadan was less than a month ago.
a lot of Ramadan except
for six months straight and then start preparing themselves for the next Ramadan.
My brothers in Islam we need to set our mind straight
and become an akuna abdon Shakira if that's the case I should be thankful to Allah, Allah bless you the month of Ramadan, be thankful to Allah insha Allah subhanaw taala son of gratitude, so Allah gives you more. And Allah subhanaw taala grant you and one of the things that helped you to be steadfast and to be grateful.
And I thankful seventh Allah subhana wa tada is for you to put yourself in the right environment. And that's why one of the things that we do is that you are made to maintain myself and maintain you and maintain us all is that we set our camps our brotherhood kept our dollar cap our amen camp after the month of Ramadan next weekend.
Seven days from now next Friday, we are going on the Brotherhood winter post Ramadan camp. Every single brother over the age of 16 is welcome in for you. You could get the posters you could get the flyers on the way out, attend. Put yourself in that environment. I relived the beautiful nights and days of the month of Ramadan during that beautiful spiritual brotherly environment
every Muslim dreams to be
