o produto. Lots of Hannah hautala and face me upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam testify that there's no god except Allah. Allah testify that Mohammed is the Prophet and the Messenger of Allah, and I encouraged myself and you defeat a number of Allah subhanho wa Taala as a large zoa God Lord states in the Holy Quran, or those who believe fear Allah Fie Allah, Allah that way you should be feed and do not die unless you're on the state of Islam. My brothers in Islam
as well, only few days away from the month of Ramadan, the month of taqwa, the month, that we fear Allah subhanho wa Taala the way you should be feed in which Allah subhanho wa Taala clearly stated in that verse, though I mentioned to you before Fie Allah Fie Allah the way he should be feed and do not die unless you're in the state of Islam. The month of Ramadan is the month of taqwa. The month of Ramadan is the month of fearing Allah azzawajal Namaste month of Ramadan is the month of piety. The month of Ramadan is the month of righteousness because Allah subhana wa tada he says, Yeah, you know, gudivada como si amo gamma kuchibhotla Latina Min publikum la la cuenta con, who believe a lot
prescribed upon you fasting the way he did on the previous nations before you said you could say you could acquire taqwa, said he could acquire, acquire taqwa, acquire the stock or the loss of Hannah what Allah mentions a tequila Hakata
Allah subhana wa tada
wants you to be in the field Allah subhana wa tada is deserving.
Not lip service fee, lip service fee.
Practical fee. What's the practical fee that you feel
alone and never ever disability the loss of Thailand that's what
he says a lot. Fasting upon you in the month of Ramadan so you could acquire taqwa so you could strengthen your temple so you could strengthen your appliances so you could strengthen your righteousness, your fear but last
month in the month of May only days away from the month of Ramadan. Next Friday is going to be your last Friday before the month of Ramadan. So two Fridays from now is going to be the month of Ramadan.
You'll be fasting in the month of Ramadan
We want to get
out of the month of Ramadan as it is not only abstaining from food and water during the day. Not only that we are hungry and we are thirsty in the month of Ramadan
acquiring taqwa increasing our relationship with Allah subhana wa tada increasing,
increasing our righteousness, increasing our piety.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala clearly states
that fasting for you. First thing is for you to increase your for you to strengthen your taqwa for you to be more than less.
Or someone who feels a lot more for you to be someone who feels alone.
During the month of Ramadan, after the month of Ramadan, and before the month of Ramadan. That's what taqwa is about.
As many of us think of
things that you wish if Allah and never disobey Allah, Allah and they may even neglect the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala in your life. That's what taqwa is about. Many Muslims think of is just about Allah subhanaw taala just about doing good deeds, just about worshiping just a man increasing from the good deeds. No. Duck law is about you staying away from the harem before you initiate more good deeds in your life.
So if it's a class between doing something good and keeping away from the heroine, no keep away from the home before you start anything good. That's what taco is.
Tyler I know he says it tucked in behind him a duck on either the nurse keep away from the huddle up the best worshipper in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Keep away from the Hara, yo,
the number of friends that you pray and the number of days that you boys I bet you keeping away from home, keeping away from the familiar actions. And that's why the month of Ramadan is the month that trains you up the month that strengthens you the month that teaches you to keep away from the home, but keep away from the house in the month of Ramadan, then relapse and go back to the heart of after the month of Ramadan.
turquoise I bet you're constantly and always hearing Allah subhanho wa Taala in the month of Ramadan, and more importantly, after the month of Ramadan. More importantly after the month of Ramadan. ramadan
ramadan, how much are you? And how strong Are you the loss of Hannah hautala
Allah contact upon
from food and keeping away from water, it's about you increasing.
does not keep away from the fullest talk in the month of Ramadan is not in need of him, keeping away from his water and keeping away from his food.
If you did not stop heroin in the month of Ramadan
to make yourself hungry and thirsty,
neither of you to keep away from your water to keep away from your food
wants you to do is that you keep away from the harem. Keep away from the actions. And when you're gonna do that, you're gonna do that with the month of Ramadan is no,
no, that's wrong. And this is where a lot of us get it wrong. We went for the month of Ramadan to be announced. And then they want to stop the huddle. If you really wanna
get the most out of the month. You need to stop the huddle right now.
You need to stop the huddle right now. You've got less than 10 days to go for the commencement and the beginning of the month of Ramadan. And if you really want to get the most out of the month of Ramadan, and you want to be the person that took off by fasting in the month of Ramadan
and experiencing the month of Ramadan, then you need to stop the Haram now and you know yourself. No one knows you more than yourself. You know that they are involved in you that you've been indulging in you
Have you been committing, you know, the sins that you've been stealing and the sins that you've been committing? No one knows you more than yourself, you know, the heroin that you've been eating.
been listening to.
You been looking at even grabbing and touching.
If you really want to put in the month of Ramadan, you must stop the Haram right now. Stop it from now from today. And you should have stopped from yesterday. That's why my brothers and it's them. We live the month of Ramadan every single year, and we passed every single year.
But we come out of the month of Ramadan as if we did not even experienced the month of Ramadan.
We did not even increase our party
did not even get stronger with it even foster the relationship between us
strengthen the relationship between us and
so we come out of the month of Ramadan into the month of Ramadan.
Because we did not even stop the harem
within a subtotal haram before the month of Ramadan. And then we tried to stop the month of Ramadan. But at the end of the month of Ramadan, Ramadan was over, we went back to the harem. We went back to the heart as if that's the month of Ramadan was something that just went past.
A bypass that just went past, no changes. If you really want to better yourself, if you really want to get closer to religion, if you really want to get a better relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala you need to stop to have a
look at yourself. Assess yourself, look at the huddle that you've been committing stop around now whether it's major minor, and please, please please do not deceive yourself and say is this a major hurdle or is this a manohara? Is this a big hurdle? Or is this a small harm as well as do some people come up to me asking me if it's smoking is a major hurdle.
Looking at the opposite gender is
doing this is our major
brother, if it's major or minor at the end of the day, the one that you are disobeying is one that's Allah Subhana hota so then look at the size.
The Look at the size of the
look at the
look at the
end of the day.
big, big or small
end of the day you
deserve to be
your love your maker does not deserve to be disobeyed.
you will never ever disavow
whether it's a big or small
whether it's a big, small size, one kilogram, one gram of at the end of the day
and you shouldn't be disappearing
from the first place.
Then look at the size of the economy. Look at
to Muslim on Wi Fi Allah the way he should be feed.
Fear Allah subhana wa tada the way he should be feed and the
everything whether it's a big or small
I feel Allah subhana wa tada ramadan
ramadan, Allah subhanho wa Taala during the day or during the night
whether I'm with my friends
wa tada whether I'm going through hardships or not hardships, Allah subhanho wa Taala during tough days.
Allah subhanho wa Taala the way he should be feed, that's the word Allah subhana wa tada should be feeding. That's the feed Allah subhana wa tada is deserving off. And the month of Ramadan teaches you teaches you that fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Zoda should be feeding the cocoon, so he could acquire tequila, say could increase their tequila. So if there's one thing that you need to prepare yourself for now for the month of Ramadan, prepare yourself to start keeping the head on
from this connect yourself. Disconnect yourself from bad habits. How many bad habits that we have in our lives? How many which became bad habits. They were still in dogs.
They were still involved in continue to sin.
I know Tara is watching us
are still watching the harem are still involved in the huddle.
In the huddle room
are still doing
about you increasing your tequila, but that's not gonna happen. If you're not gonna prepare yourself for it before the month of Ramadan. Don't wait for the month of Ramadan to be announced so you could increase your taco increase your taco for now. Prepare yourself for now. Get yourself ready from now. So when
you're ready and that's where you feel Allah subhanho wa Taala the field is deserving of
you and you find yourself getting closer to Allah in the month of Ramadan
you're only connected
aim for the month of Ramadan for you to be forgiven. But aim before the month of Ramadan you're forgiven. So when you enter the month of Ramadan you already forgiven
yourself with other things with other normal religious things in the month of Ramadan.
Not just I am going to repent in the month of Ramadan No, I am going to repent before the month of Ramadan. I'm going to go into the month of Ramadan and experience the month of Ramadan and I'm already forgiven Alexa already showed me with his mercy Alexa, show with me with this forgiveness. I'm gonna enter the
arena forgiving my sins and in the month of Ramadan
that's what I'm gonna do in the month of Ramadan. But if your faith your objective then I'm going to wait for the month of Ramadan to stop for me to be forgiven and then the month of Ramadan starts and then you start preparing yourself to be forgiven and then by the end of the month of Ramadan
and then the month of Ramadan ends and here you are you go back to old habits. Nothing has happened. The month of Ramadan is about you being a better person after the month of Ramadan than what you were before the month of Ramadan. Ramadan is about
the month of Ramadan is about your condition, your status
vaada Ramadan and that's why if you want to look at yourself, how are you before the month of Ramadan last year and how you became after the month of Ramadan last year you look at yourself most of us will tell you I probably didn't even change I'm the same person as they used to be before last year's Ramadan as they became after losses Ramadan is not what you want to experience this year. They're gonna leave
and unless it blesses you with this great blessing with this great grace, the loss of
experience another month or Ramadan in your life. And here you are, you're not even gonna get the most out of it. You know my brothers in Islam just for you.
Just by you experiencing another month of Ramadan in your life. That's a great blessing of Allah subhanaw taala upon you.
Just for you to live and experience one second.
That's a great blessing
upon you. I know for a fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala chose you to live another Ramadan in your life. During the time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam three companions embrace Islam. So the provider is Salatu was assigned a senior companion to look out for their three companions. So two of the three companions passed away and they died on a battlefield. So they thought the Shahada matters. Then the third one, he passed away one year after the other two companies a pastor on the battlefield on his bed.
So the company that was looking after him, he saw his dreams, he saw that the water passed away one year, after the other two companions, he passed out on the battlefield entity agenda before the other to say he was amazed. He went to the premiere Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him on messenger of Allah, I saw this dream that those who died and passed away as much as in Sharjah on the battlefield empathy agenda after the past one year after him and he thought on his bed
and usually we got the perception that the doors on the battlefield is a lot more harder, or he's a lot more senior. He's a lot more
on debit? And that's not always the case. Yes. Does
that have a high rank, but it's not always the case it has the highest rank.
Reporting this companion is said to him, why are you shocked for why are you surprised, didn't open the door after him. But when you deliver an X ray for him to pray to Allah subhanaw taala during a live an X ray for him to read the Quran, Karima didn't delete an X ray for him to face. And then the provider is also says he didn't he leave an extra fee for him to live and experience another Ramadan in his life. So Pamela, one extra Ramadan in the life of this companion made him more higher rank than the other companies who have died on the battlefield. So Panama. Great, a great virtue. A great reward that Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you just for you living and experiencing another
Ramadan in your life. And if you do live to this Ramadan that's coming to the next Ramadan. On the doors of this Ramadan, we are around the corner from the month of Ramadan. We just experienced this Ramadan that's coming for 2016 this is another blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you Why? Because the Lord says he loves you. What because I love to forgive you. Because mercy upon you wanted to get closer to him. Why? Because I know Tyler wants you to increase your taco word because I lost it to give you the agenda.
Elevate your position. But are you prepared for that? Are you ready for that? Yes, yes. No, it's not that lip service here.
With your tongue? Have you really prepared yourself for the month of Ramadan? The answer is most of us did not even prepare themselves for the month of Ramadan. We haven't even prepared anything. The only thing that we are preparing for the month of Ramadan is taking some time off work, and what are we gonna eat and as I am and the invitations that we're gonna get, and the people that we're gonna invite.
On this day, we're gonna hang out. That's all prepared. That's the compensation discussions that we've been having. But did you really repent? Did you really keep away from the Haram? Did you look? Are you so?
Did you contemplate and ponder between you and you stop and say you know what, I've got 12345 bad habits I've got in my life that I need to stop them on. I need to stop them now. And those light
just gonna continue to be even more later. That's all my brothers in Islam. The month of Ramadan is
the month of Ramadan. It's the preparation that you prepared yourself before the month of Ramadan. The Prophet Mohammed salallahu alayhi wa sallam
used to prepare himself for the month of Ramadan, so much so
first, the month of the month that we're in right now, the month before the month of Ramadan, it's done the Ramadan
or the vast majority. And the vast majority of days in the month of shotgun. The Prophet Muhammad SAW seven professing salt for the month of Ramadan, preparing himself and he's the Messenger of Allah. He's the one that has the highest level of taqwa. He's to prepare himself for the month of Ramadan in the month of Shabbat. And he said this is people neglect why because I want to prepare themselves for the month of Ramadan. And I don't want to be from amongst us Allah subhanaw taala looks and sees to be someone who's neglecting this month preparing himself from above. And that's the greatest man that ever stepped foot on the face of this earth. That's Muhammad sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam. He used to prepare himself for the month of Ramadan. What a man which is the month of
the vast majority of the month
I just says I've never seen
as much as he did fast in the month of
to prepare for the month of Ramadan six months before the month of Ramadan not six days or six hours and some other six minutes Oh, Ramadan Oh no. Did you announce Ramadan Oh no. Did you see the moon No you didn't say the moon is tomorrow Ramadan is that calculation recently installed a laser minty Sandy's Amanda handle everyone else preparing themselves with a month of Ramadan is gonna stop and we've become so occupied about one the month of Ramadan is gonna stop rather than us occupying ourselves about what are we going to prepare ourselves for the month of Ramadan.
And that's why my brother's an experiment is one thing that you need to avoid before the beginning of the month of Ramadan. Avoid the debatable issues about the beginning of the month of Ramadan. It's not your job. Just leave it to them. Let them decide.
On. And if you want to go with any particular ideology or any particular particular opinion go with it without engaging yourself in any debate. Let's see. So Pamela, we'll start with the month of Ramadan, debating at the beginning of the month of Ramadan. We're ending
the end of the month of Ramadan.
And then we'll tell you
the very beginning of
the end of the month of Ramadan, start the month of Ramadan with love, with respect with unity with understanding.
At least with this. No, I'm on the hook is on the bottom we got with me and starting he goes with calculation. Whatever someone gave me, it's not your business. Just keep it between your last panel. Take whatever opinion you want to take. Take whatever opinion you want to take but don't start with debates. In the base.
says when Allah subhanaw taala wants to destroy a nation, the first thing
that destroys them with is for them to start debating and arguing with one another. So Pamela the month of Ramadan is a month of blessing and unity not a month of hardship of disputing with one another or a month of disunity. Keep away from debates. Keep away from backbiting. Keep away from slandering keep wrong things we need to prepare ourselves for this month. The ask Allah to make us from amongst those who listen and hear and act upon what they listen to and prepare themselves for these blessings month the month of Ramadan. I mean, I mean
the Muslim in fire oppose them stuffing in a stuffy room in a hula for
100 times and Catherine Kamara ash guru Whoa, whoa, whoa. de vida Merci de Lima Shakur, wa salli wa sallim wa barik ala nabina matava shadow Allah ilaha illallah wa salli ala Muhammad Abdul
el presidente Allah subhanho wa Taala and peace be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brothers in Islam once again or do remind myself or remind you of the importance of us preparing ourselves for the month of Ramadan. It's very important that we continue preparing ourselves for the month of Ramadan, not today from yesterday.
Gohan today I start thinking about ways of you preparing yourself mentally, spiritually, physically, mentally, prepare yourself for the month of Ramadan. These are sort of things that you need to grasp. These are sort of things that you need to collect in your work and start working on start moving towards and is less than 10 days for the month of Ramadan. And so 10 days What are you going to do 10 days if you at least want to get the most out of each day of the month of Ramadan. Each day of the month of Ramadan needs one full day preparation one full day. So you've got 30 days of the month of Ramadan, you should have at least prepared yourself 30 days before the month of Ramadan for
each day of the month of Ramadan prepare one day
for each month of the month of Ramadan prepare one month and you only have 10 months now 10 days for the month of Ramadan.
For Dharma brothers in Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to see us closer to him in the month of Ramadan. Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to repent to him a true repentance
is a lie. So Jim mentioned the Napoleonic idiom, a true sincere repentance for the sake of Allah, Allah He I am. I am your servant, knocking on your guides seeking forgiveness. I want you to repent once you take repentance, I am repenting to your love. Forgive me,
upon me your love that you ever ever turn me back. That's all you need to do and prepare yourself from now.
This is the month of Ramadan, a blessing, a grace, a mercy, forgiveness, salvation from the hellfire. What more can you ask for?
us giving you something within 30 days or less something that you could even dream off? What are you gonna do with all those blessings Allah subhanho wa Taala is giving you
are you gonna just go through that month and get past that month and that's it just fast for everyone
Take it to the next level. You want to advance that you want to take advantage of every single moment of it. Stop thinking about it. Stop planning for now, but you're going to be held back.
You're going to be held back if you continue indulging in the harm.
If you do not abstain away and keep away from the wrongdoings from the Haram from the bad habits, then I'm sorry.
You're not gonna go too far in the month of Ramadan. That's why you never got too far in the month of Ramadan because you're still held back with all the harm that you're involved in with all the harm that you engage with, with all the harm they indulged in. abstain away, free yourself from the Haram. So you could free yourself to
free yourself from the home. So you could free yourself to
disconnect from the home so you could connect yourself because you will never ever connect yourself with a religion, when you're connected to the huddle will never happen. You can't. You can't have two hands. One hand you on
the other hand, you want to connect to the huddle, it doesn't happen.
You can't connect the darkness a lot at the same time.
You can't have two for
those doesn't happen. So if you want to be with Alonzo, again, you need to disconnect yourself from the huddle. You want to get the most out of the month of Ramadan, you need to disconnect yourself from the hierarchy for the month of Ramadan. If you want to forgive you need to repent before that your allies mess up on you anytime upon yourself by you disconnecting yourself from the harem. That's what the month of Ramadan is about. My brothers in Islam are announced to every single one of you that during the month of Ramadan will be operating three centers that you may all be operating three centers. This center you may revote Perry Pac National Sports Club, and Greenacre public
school, three centers in Sharla. We will be operating during the month of Ramadan. And in those three centers we'll be praying for a lot of Asia every single night at seven o'clock regardless what the time of Asia is. Every single night at a set time seven o'clock every single night and every night will be
a short reminder in between Sinatra we have about 12 minutes to 15 minutes in English. All brothers their family and their children are welcome except your answer children the answer to children.
They're not welcome I'm telling you from now, if you're going to have a child or a kid, a boy or girl that's going to be running around and crying during the time of data we keep them at home and it's better for you to stay at home with them and so they get more rewards than you bring them to the center and then them crying and distracting about two 300 people. Your wives are also welcome your sisters are also welcome but the most convenient place in which has a lot more space for sisters to the experi Park. So we have a small room at the back with the sisters and we have a small room agree like a public school but Perry Park has a big and a big size area for sisters too shallow
for them to price a lot that we have. So inshallah during the month of Ramadan once again we will be operating three centers, three centers you may revolt National Sports Club Perry Park and Greenacre public school three of them starting out at 7pm and don't forget to take a my Ramadan calendar before you guys go over the details of all the different programs and venues that will be operating during the month of Ramadan. And also one in the month of Ramadan is the month of generosity. And a lot of people want to play this account in the month of Ramadan if you want to play the card before the month of Ramadan which is also a good opportunity. We are taking Zakat money and we use this
money to fund brothers to go study overseas for them to come back as imams Of course to teach your children or children. So this is the second project that we've got inshallah we're also collecting accounts before the month of Ramadan and in the month of Ramadan and finally don't forget after the month of Ramadan if you want to be steadfast and continue being in our environment and surround yourself with the right people who've got the person Ramadan you to my brotherhood camp inshallah, if you want to register, register and buy tickets from now
