00:01:20--> 00:01:21

My brothers in Islam

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

after the end of the month of Ramadan,

00:01:27--> 00:01:33

a beautiful blessed month that Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed us all to experience

00:01:34--> 00:01:56

this month. I know for a fact there is a grace and a blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you that you've experienced another Ramadan in your life. And now after 29 beautiful nights and days, in the month of Ramadan, we finished from the month of Ramadan, another month

00:01:58--> 00:02:02

we finished from the month of Ramadan to begin a new month.

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

And let me say one thing my brother and Islam

00:02:07--> 00:02:13

that right now after the month of Ramadan, the real challenge and test begins

00:02:15--> 00:03:02

the month of Ramadan he had everything easy hamdulillah not only that we fasted very short and cool days in the month of Ramadan. But keep in mind the shayateen were locked up. You had a very beautiful environment to attend every single night. everyone around you and the vast majority of those that you know were fasting so you were forced to be on the right path. But now after the month of Ramadan was a shout out and had swarmed out, coming towards you, and to get the most out of you keeping away from me for one month not now I want to make the most out of you after the month of Ramadan. And now the environment and the nature of the environment that change when you no longer

00:03:02--> 00:03:09

have people around you fasting the way the way in the month of Ramadan. Now the real test and challenge begins.

00:03:10--> 00:03:17

We thought the month of Ramadan was a bit of a challenge but the reality is after the month of Ramadan is the true challenge

00:03:18--> 00:03:21

after the month of Ramadan is the real test

00:03:22--> 00:03:57

has your status after the month of Ramadan. You look at many Muslims now and you could see them declining in their Eman the very next day after the month of Ramadan. You see people start to drop in their email after the month of Ramadan. People start to even neglect this Allah after the month of Ramadan. People even start to fall into the Haram after the month of Ramadan. People went back to their old habits after the month of Ramadan. Then what was the point of the month of Ramadan if we did not make a change in our life in our in or after the month of Ramadan?

00:03:58--> 00:04:04

Allah subhana wa tada he says in the Quran, Allah Kareem in the learner. Coleman had

00:04:06--> 00:04:38

to say, Allah does not change the condition of people until people themselves change their condition. If you want your condition to change, then you need to change your condition. Then expect change to come from outside. If you want to better yourself you need to start making that change in your life and not just wait for the month of Ramadan for you to make that change. It's about what's after the month of Ramadan. Where are you after the month of Ramadan? Where do you want to be after the month of Ramadan?

00:04:39--> 00:04:49

Why do we see this phenomenon and the same amongst the Muslims? The after the month of Ramadan not only the decline in the email but they plunge in the a man.

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

People start slacking off after the month of Ramadan as if Allah only exists in the month of Ramadan. Where's a lot of the month of Ramadan

00:05:01--> 00:05:18

Where's the field Eliza gel after the month of Ramadan? Where's the connection to Allah subhana wa tada after the month of Ramadan. Allah exists in the month of Ramadan after the month of Ramadan before the month of Ramadan before you were born after your death, Allahu Allah.

00:05:19--> 00:05:19

Allah.

00:05:21--> 00:05:26

Allah is not God except Allah, he's the everlasting one.

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

He's the one that lives and never boys.

00:05:31--> 00:05:37

Was the reality of the in our hearts that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one that lives and never dies.

00:05:38--> 00:05:43

Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran, Karim wapo drop back

00:05:44--> 00:05:54

wobbled Rebecca had to Kalia keen worship You Lord Allah until you meet your death.

00:05:55--> 00:05:59

And do you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala now

00:06:01--> 00:06:08

aroma balm, worship Allah when Ramadan comes Allah subhana wa tada commends

00:06:09--> 00:06:28

Allah orders Allah demands and he's the one that has the rights to command an order and demand and he says yeah, are you are Latina Amano law Hakata Carter, oh those who believe fi Allah the way he should be feed

00:06:29--> 00:06:54

and fearing Allah subhanho wa Taala the way he should be feed is that you feed Allah subhana wa Taala during every single moment of your life during every single moment of your life, not that you feel alone in the month of Ramadan and then you no longer fearing allies or gel after the month of Ramadan. Allah haka. toccata Fie Allah the way you should be feed.

00:06:55--> 00:06:59

Fie Allah subhanho wa Taala. The fearing that he's deserving of

00:07:00--> 00:07:06

fear Allah subhana wa tada in a way that Allah is Zodiac humanity that you feel

00:07:07--> 00:07:16

for them our brothers in Islam. It's important for us to keep up and maintain the good that we started in the month of Ramadan.

00:07:18--> 00:08:06

It's so important for me to continue taking those steps forward, after the month of Ramadan, be steadfast as alive xojo commands the Prophet Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be steadfast with Allah commands Muhammad Allah is salatu wa Salaam Namaste and the teacher of steadfastness. And Allah soldier system, Mohammed, he says to Mohammed Yes, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for stukken gamma Ahmed, Mohammed be steadfast? Yes, you Muhammad. Yes, you Mohammed. Yes, you're the Prophet and the Messenger of Allah, and you're the teacher and the master of steadfastness. And yet Allah azza wa jal continues to command him and allows her sister Mohammed, Mohammed, you be

00:08:06--> 00:08:11

steadfast you, woman turbomeca and those who repented with you.

00:08:12--> 00:08:45

If Allah azza wa jal commands Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be steadfast, and he is the master steadfastness. What about us? What about me and you? What about us? Where do we stand when it comes to steadfastness? for them our brother in Islam, it's so important for me to continue to relive the month of Ramadan after the month of Ramadan. I'm not throwing everything that I've gained in the month of Ramadan behind because one of the worst actions

00:08:46--> 00:08:54

one of the worst actions that you could ever bring upon yourself is the good the Easter you throw it behind you after you've started it, Allah.

00:08:56--> 00:09:11

Allah put you there. Allah Subhana Allah chose you to do goodness, Allah Subhana Allah chose you to the righteousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala chose you to do the good deeds and actions Allah chose you that you worship Him.

00:09:12--> 00:09:44

When you pray to Allah azza wa jal you pray because God chose you to pray. And when he first Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah chose you too fast. And whenever you do a good deed know for a fact you are doing it because Allah chose you to do it. So be appreciative towards Allah subhanho wa Taala have chosen you for and the way that we appreciate to Allah subhanho wa Taala chosen us for is that we continue maintaining the goodness Allah azza wa jal had granted us

00:09:45--> 00:09:50

and there is no greater goodness than the goodness of the worship of Allah.

00:09:51--> 00:09:53

In our my brothers in Islam,

00:09:54--> 00:09:56

worshipping Allah is a risk

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

worshiping Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

is a risk. What does that mean?

00:10:04--> 00:10:39

When you ask people, what risk sustenance or provisions to you, people say sustenance to me is money, wealth, health, children, houses, cars, this is your risk. Yes, it's risk. But what else? What else do you consider our perceived risk to be? And people only look at the materials of this world to be a risk. But you know, you need to add something into that. You need to add something to what we just mentioned before, that when you worship Allah azza wa jal, it is part of the risk that Allah subhanaw taala had written for you.

00:10:41--> 00:10:59

So not only that, Allah azzawajal decrees upon you the risk of food, and the risk of water and the risk of wealth and the risk of health and the risk of children. But also part of the risk that Allah subhanho wa Taala had decreed upon me is the risk of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala.

00:11:01--> 00:11:17

So when you see yourself worshiping Allah azza wa jal and excelling in the worship of Allah subhana wa tada and doing good in the worship of Allah azza wa jal know that Allah subhana wa Taala has decreed the risk and gave you more risk in his worship than anyone else.

00:11:19--> 00:11:25

So the moment that you pray to Allah azza wa jal, it is also part of what Allah has decreed upon you.

00:11:26--> 00:12:09

The moment when you attend a gathering of this gathering. It is also a decree that Allah subhanaw taala had decreed upon you. The moment that you read the Fulani Karim is also a decree that Allah subhana wa Taala decreed upon you the moment that you first Allah subhanho wa Taala It is also the risk of Allah subhanho wa Taala had written upon you and Allah says in the Quran, Allah Kareem woollacott for Donna Baba Kuma, Allah badan Phyllis, we have favorite some of you either others were at favorite some of you or others when it comes to this book. So Allah subhanho wa Taala favored some others when it comes to reserve when it comes to sustenance and provisions, while others have

00:12:09--> 00:12:20

Anahata decreed to provide you with and that's why when we see someone wealthy, we start looking up to them. And we say, well, Allah azza wa jal had given them all for me, I wish I was in this position.

00:12:21--> 00:12:33

When we say someone with a lot more money than us, we start looking up to them to say, I wish I have the risk. When was the last time you saw someone worshipping a large xojo more than you and he said, You know what, I wish I could become like him.

00:12:34--> 00:12:38

We didn't look at it that way. When we look at the materials of old,

00:12:39--> 00:13:03

we only want more money in our life. We want more wealth in our life. We want more we want more prestige in our life. We want more strength in our life. We want more prestige or more influence in our life. But when was the last time you looked at someone who worships a lot of stones are moving in. And he's more excelled and advanced than you when it comes to the worship of Allah and he said, You know what, I want to become like him.

00:13:04--> 00:13:21

I want to become like him. And that's why my brother and Islam. Keep in mind that the good day you do and the worship of Allah azza wa jal that you worship, it is part of the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you. And it is part of the list that Allah subhana wa tada had favor of others.

00:13:22--> 00:13:33

So I appreciate the risk of Allah subhanaw taala what type of risk am I talking about the risk of worshipping Allah because Allah favors of others. A lot chose you to do this good.

00:13:34--> 00:13:42

Allah Subhana Allah chose you to do this worship Allah Subhana Allah chose you to remember him, my brother, just think about it.

00:13:44--> 00:14:07

Man you to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala he always remember lies. So again, who am I to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm nothing in front of Allah azza wa jal. I'm the one that depends on Allah, Who am I to remember Allah and Allah to remember me in return? And Allah subhanaw taala to reward me And who am I? To give me the agenda?

00:14:08--> 00:14:31

That's why the worship the worship of Allah is part of the risk of Allah Pani. So thank Allah subhanaw taala for it and they look up to other people say, Why did Allah give him more water me because maybe Allah gave him more water than you as part of the risk of Allah Pani. But Allah subhanaw taala gave you another risk and that's a worship of Allah azza wa jal upon need.

00:14:33--> 00:14:35

A lot of this people are Wilfred don't even pray to Allah.

00:14:37--> 00:14:52

A lot of those roles that people don't even return to Allah remember Allah and that's why you find that challenge and competition amongst the Sahaba the alota Allah I know, during the time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were the poor companions.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

The poor companions came to the provider is Salatu was Salam complaining team saying team or messenger of Allah, the rich

00:15:00--> 00:15:30

Believers the rich companions has surpassed us had surpassed us the head of us when it comes to worshiping Allah azza wa jal than us. So the provider is salatu wa sallam says in which Why? So they said O Messenger of Allah, they pray like us, they fast like us, the readable arnicare him like us. There remember Allah azza wa jal like us, but they have more wealth than I in the path of Allah and we don't have that wolf. Look at this competition.

00:15:31--> 00:16:08

They're not worried about them having more wealth than them are because it's got a bigger house, a nicer car. And he's got more people, maids and slaves around them. No, no, we're concerned about the rewards that we're getting out of the nation for the sake of Allah. So our messenger of Allah, this is the complaint that they loves to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, saying that the poor, the poor companions are getting less work less rewards than the rich companions, the rich companies are getting more rewards than the poor companions. Why? Because the prey like us, they fast like us, the reader Chronicle him like us, they remember our lives or like us, but the thing is, they donate

00:16:08--> 00:16:19

because they have extra worlds. They have more money to donate for the sake of Allah so they get more rewards in their donation and their charity. And we don't get any of that because we don't have the money to donate.

00:16:20--> 00:16:23

So the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam says to them,

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

Didn't you know?

00:16:26--> 00:16:30

The boy is saying Subhana Allah, that's a charity.

00:16:31--> 00:17:12

Sangha. sigle hamdulillah that's another charity, saying Allahu Akbar, that's another charity. And then the provider is salat wa salam says, sang La la la la, that's another charity. It's equal to the one that's given the $100 or $200 or $300 sound the same way that these people are giving the wolf as a form of charity for the sake of Allah azza wa jal also remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala is a charity. So saying Subhana Allah is a charity setting that is a charity setting Al Hamdulillah is a charity sila holla La quwata illa is a charity then the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, he says, calling for which is good is also a charity

00:17:14--> 00:17:23

preventing from which is bad is also a charity. you encourage someone to do something good. Allah gives you that as a reward lucky donated for the sake of Allah.

00:17:24--> 00:18:00

Yea, discourage someone from doing something head on. That's also a charity. And then the provider is salatu wa sallam he says what a more total other and authority sadaqa removing a harmful object, something that will harm people on the path of people on the road or the street is also a form of charity. Then the provider is salatu salam says when a man and a woman when a husband and wife have intimacy and love, it's also a charity. So the Sahaba said O Messenger of Allah, people fulfill their sexual desire. And Allah Subhana Allah gives them rewards for that.

00:18:01--> 00:18:42

says, if he did it in the Hara, nigrosine so they said yes or messenger of Allah. So the prophet SAW sort of says Likewise, if it doesn't in the halal Allah give him rewards. Look at the amount of rewards or loss of annata Allah continues to give. But then what happened when the other rich companions that have the advantage of having extra water donate for the sake of allowing get the rewards of charity for the sake of Allah, when they found out what the provider is Salatu was Salam had thought and mentioned to the poor companions about them saying Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allahu Akbar, they get rewards. So these rich companies also at the top of what

00:18:42--> 00:19:06

they do, and what they give for the sake of Allah, they also start to remember Allah Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allah Allahu Allahu Akbar. So the poor companions came back to the provider is Salatu was Salam. And they said, O Messenger of Allah, Nether also got what you have given us. So NaVi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, this is Allah subhanaw taala his will, he chooses whoever he wants, for whatever he wants.

00:19:07--> 00:19:09

For that my brother in Islam,

00:19:10--> 00:19:20

that moment that you worship Allah subhana wa Taala It is part of the reason. It is part of the provision that Allah subhanho wa Taala had decreed upon me.

00:19:21--> 00:19:34

Likewise, when Allah azza wa jal opens the doors and the gates of often have the love of God a successful business or making 1000s of dollars a day and ever loved and happy, and he said, hamdulillah

00:19:35--> 00:19:47

Allah azza wa jal had opened the doors of reason for me, I'm so happy and proud and I thank Allah Xhosa for that you should be a lot more overwhelmed and you should be a lot more joyful and happier

00:19:48--> 00:19:52

in the moment that Allah subhanaw taala opens the door of risk of the Iboga

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

when Allah azza wa jal opens the door of the provision of worshipping Allah subhana wa tada

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

We need to start changing our mindset and not look at the birth as a form of burden.

00:20:07--> 00:20:26

We look at the burden as a burden. Ah, Salatin Juma one o'clock now I have to make widow drove all the way to the masjid praise Allah Juma burden. After close my shop fi customers Mark can pass on my list some business on my list some customers is becoming a burden. You need to change it.

00:20:27--> 00:20:31

You need to transform the thought from a burden to love and joy

00:20:32--> 00:20:36

to love and joy that must be in our life.

00:20:38--> 00:20:51

the worship of Allah azza wa jal must be in my life, the most joyful moment throughout my entire life. The moment I worship Allah azza wa jal, it is the most happiest moment in my life.

00:20:52--> 00:21:25

It is the most joyful moment in my life. The moment I raised my hands and said Allahu Akbar, it is indeed the greatest moment for me to stand before Allah. So it's not a moment of burden again, to have to pray five times a day. You know how many people ask me that question? Can it be three? Lower live, Allah makes it through you're going to say Can it be one? And if Allah makes a once a day, you're going to say Can it be once a week? And if Allah makes it to you once a week, you have said can it can it be once a month, you Subhana Allah, this is the nature of mankind.

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

This our nature, so greedy.

00:21:30--> 00:21:59

so greedy. Always want things to our advantage. And we'll look at things differently for that my brothers in Islam, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in this beautiful Hadith, and I want you to pay attention to this hadith. Pay attention to Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you as the Prophet Mohammed sallallahu Sallam he says in this hadith man Gannett era to Hama jhala Halina houfy Kobe was Yama, Allah He Shimla

00:22:00--> 00:22:04

to dunya Hiroshima woman Ghana to dunya Hama

00:22:05--> 00:22:06

jollof.

00:22:09--> 00:22:19

Allah He Shama, what am Yachty Mina? dunya Illa Allah, listen carefully to this Hadith, and this hadith can open a lot of gates and doors for you.

00:22:20--> 00:23:06

The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam wants to paint the true image of this dunya and akhira where he says Allah is Salatu was salam, whoever, whoever is so concerned about the hero, whoever has the he after as his primary a main objective in his life. In other words, when you say that, Allah subhanho wa Taala so your main objective is Allah azzawajal your main concern is the pleasure of Allah. What you want in your Danny morning is the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal in a recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says in this famous Hadith, however, is so concerned about the effect on the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will grant him, Allah azza wa jal will grant him

00:23:06--> 00:23:48

wealth and to become rich in his heart. So Allah azza wa jal will grant you something not being rich with wealth, because being rich was worth it does not mean that you're rich in your heart. But being reaching your heart It means that you are rich with everything. And the world Allah azza wa jal will grant you is that contentment, that contentment that the most wealthiest and richest people are missing out on that contentment in their heart, that they've got everything out there but they're not content inside there. Ha sandhi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, Whoever is so concerned about the agora, your main objective and goal in your life is to please Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:49--> 00:24:07

Allah azza wa jal will make yourself rich in your heart, that you feel that you are really the most wealthiest and richest man standing on the face of this earth. And he don't care about the materials not that I'm saying, being rich or wealthy is wrong. But be rich and wealthy in the heart comes before being rich and wealthy with your own money.

00:24:08--> 00:24:16

And not only that, but the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam he says, What Jama Allah inshallah, Allah will organize your matters upon you.

00:24:18--> 00:24:59

Your financial matters, your social matters, your marriage, and marital status, your children, you serve Allah subhanaw taala organize this for you. Everything will be under your control. You will be satisfied with your marriage life, you will be satisfied with your social life. You'll be satisfied with your financial life, you will be satisfied with everything Allah azza wa jal brings everything upon you. So Allah subhanho wa Taala will organize and arrange everything for you. Everything is falling into place. And then the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says not only that, not only that Allah azza wa jal will make you rich in your heart and Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

organization

00:25:00--> 00:25:20

Ranger murders upon you, but Allah subhanho wa Taala will came in the dunya the entire dunya of its wealth and prestige and influence and strength, Allah azza wa jal will command that do need to come running to you. So you become control of the dunya not the dunya control of you.

00:25:21--> 00:26:08

Born other hand, in ob sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, and he ever is so concerned about the dunya All he cares about is this dunya wakes up in the morning so concerned about the dunya slips are not so concerned about the dunya his entire life revolves around the dunya it's all about the dunya Allah azza wa jal and the pleasure of Allah has no place in his life, however, is so concerned about the dunya and only concerned about the dunya and his goal is the pleasure of the dunya the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says Jalan lo felco beignet. Allah subhanho wa Taala will make him poor, at a low bring poverty upon his eyes. You find yourself you've got all this

00:26:08--> 00:26:24

wealth, but he's still poor from the inside. Still poor. You've got all these fancy cars and beautiful houses, but he's still full pull a lot as our gel makes you enslaved his creation, rather than being slave to the crater.

00:26:25--> 00:26:53

And not only that, worship data, Allah insha Allah, Allah subhana wa Taala will divide your matters upon you. You have no control of your marital life. You have no control of your children. You have no control of your social life. You have no control of your financial life. He doesn't even have control over yourself. You are let loose. That's why so Pamela you've got all this wealth, but he's still not satisfied.

00:26:54--> 00:27:21

He still discontent you find that you're not happy with your wife in a happy with the children. If one dies everything's just so disorganized in this aura. Everything just all over the place. And not only that, the prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam he says, while I'm while I'm at him in a dunya Illa Allah and Allah azza wa jal Allah give me from the dunya the minimal decree that he had decreed upon you.

00:27:22--> 00:27:39

So you come up with nothing. If you concern his allies, so Adele and the pleasure of Allah and to please Allah, Allah azza wa jal make you succeed and gain this world and the hereafter. But if your concern is this dunya and the creation of Allah, Allah will make you lose this dunya and the hereafter.

00:27:40--> 00:27:44

For that my brother in Islam, what's after the month of Ramadan?

00:27:45--> 00:28:06

Where's that connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala and link with Allah Almighty after the month of Ramadan, if you want to be happy, you want to be content, you want to be satisfied. You want to enjoy life, then that all comes through the pleasure of Allah and you concern must be Allah azza wa jal see what Allah subhanaw taala gives you a return.

00:28:08--> 00:28:51

But once you disconnect from Allah azza wa jal, then you become the slave of the Christ of Allah, when you should be the slave of the Creator, Allah Almighty. And a huge difference. Huge difference between being the slave of Allah and the creation of Allah. ask Allah azza wa jal to make us the true slaves of Allah. And ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept from us and ask Allah subhana wa Taala to accept our fasting and ask Allah azza wa jal to make us from amongst those who listen and hear and act upon all the listening Alhamdulillah Handan theater on camera amaresh Guru hawala de la dama de de Lima Shakur, wa salli wa sallim wa barik ala Nabeel mata burwash Chateau La ilaha illallah wa

de la sharika lah shadow ana Muhammadan. Abdo Rasulo, my brothers in Islam, as I remind myself I need to feed number Allah Subhana Allah the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam encouraged after the month of Ramadan, the first six days of the month of Shabbat, which is the month that comes after the month of Ramadan. And he says to the virtue of the rewards of fasting, the six days of the month of Shabbat he says I'm a Salatu was Salam. Anyone that first a month of Ramadan then completes and adds to it another six days from the days of the month of Chahal as if he had fasted the enjoy because for each reward and day that you get or the day that you've asked Allah gives you 10

00:29:30--> 00:29:59

rewards. Six days after the month of Ramadan in addition to 29 days in the month of Ramadan, that's about 35 to 36 days, times up by 10 to 350 to 360 days. That's the aim of fasting six days after the month of Ramadan and fasting that six days. It's not necessarily that you must ask them consecutively. You could fast them one day yes, one day no one day yes. 10 days now however you want. You could fast one day yes two days no than one day. Yes. Three days. No

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

You don't have to first and after each other, but the essence

00:30:04--> 00:30:43

and the at the gardens of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon fasting the six days. And the secrets from behind them is what the scholars say that continues your steadfastness. After the month of Ramadan, he don't want to just come out of the month of Ramadan after you fasted 29 days and that he does not stop and he doesn't fast anymore. So after the month of Ramadan, he continued fasting after the month of Ramadan, so you could continue that connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that's the aim, as the scholars say, and the purpose of fasting six days after the month of Ramadan in the month of chawan. And you could follow them however you want. And if you

00:30:43--> 00:31:23

didn't fast then there is no sin upon you. But it's something that's highly recommended that you fast those days and do your best to pass those days. Also, my brothers are do remind you that in sha Allah, we want to relive the month of Ramadan together in two weeks time from now, on the sixth and seventh of August, we'll be going in sha Allah and attending the May brotherhood post Ramadan camp, all the brothers are invited as more flies to be given out and inshallah it's two weeks from now.

Those the fee the loss of anodal in this world and encourage you to feel Allah azzawajal together will be cautious of your

00:32:43--> 00:32:57

friends and mates in the paradise. And I'll leave you with this final Hadith as the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says while the people of the paradise are enjoying their time in the paradise, some of them will start saying Yup, what happened to our friend?

00:32:59--> 00:33:36

What happens our friend that used to attend the mosque with us while our friend they used to fast with us what happened to our friend who is to sit down and remind them of Allah Subhana Allah we can't see him in the paradise. So Allah azza wa jal will say to them, he's in the Hellfire by Allah. Why? Well, you don't know where he's to do. You don't know where he's at behind your back. So he's in the hellfire. So this friend of yours, they used to remind you of Allah in this dunya and this friend of yours, they used to encourage you to feel a loss of anodyne in this dunya and please Allah surgeon, this dunya He will say to Allah while he's already in the paradise, who say, Allah, my

00:33:36--> 00:33:55

happiness is not complete. My happiness is not complete, until you bring my friend I had in this dunya bring him with me to be with me in my company in the paradise. So Allah subhanho wa Taala will take his friend out of the Hellfire into the paradise because of the intercession of this friend,

00:33:56--> 00:34:36

because of a good friend that you had in this dunya a good righteous friend that is the reminder of Allah subhanaw taala in this dunya this man will intercede for you in a paradise while you are being punished in the hellfire. So the angels and people will ask will say what happened to this man had to become and end up in a paradise after he was in the Hellfire or any of his parents or any of his brothers Shahada did no need to save the dangerous intercede for him. No, no did the prophets and messages intercede for him? No, no to have to end up in the paradise after he was in the Hellfire, a righteous friend of his interceded for him to be in the paradise. So Allah accepted his

00:34:36--> 00:34:36

intercession,

00:34:37--> 00:34:59

friendship, so important. So important that we choose our friends very carefully, which is our friends, and we're so cautious who we hang out with and who you are with. I want to be with someone that will remember me in this world and remember me in the paradise I want to have a friend that will always remind me
