All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:10--> 00:02:13

And peace be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

or testify that is no god except Allah.

00:02:19--> 00:02:26

Muhammad is the Prophet and the Messenger of Allah. And I encourage myself I need to feed no one but Allah as Allah subhana wa Taala

00:02:27--> 00:02:39

states in the Holy Quran, or those who believe Fie Allah Fie Allah Fie Allah the way you should be feed and do not die unless you're in the state of Islam.

00:02:40--> 00:03:02

And the month of Ramadan is the month of fearing Allah subhana wa tada as Eliza gel makes mention the holy Yeah, you're Latina, Amano quotevalet como si mo gamma katiba la la, la la cuenta con Odessa believe Allah subhana wa Taala prescribed upon your fasting know why hated on a previous nations before you

00:03:04--> 00:03:08

acquire the chief taqwa. So Allah commands you

00:03:09--> 00:03:27

defeat him. Allah subhanho wa Taala commands you defeat him the way he should be feed it duckula. haka. toccata others you believe it Allah, the way he should be feed that feed Allah subhana wa tada and give a lot of lip service. Not just fear Allah subhana wa tada say Allah.

00:03:29--> 00:03:46

Allah azza wa jal wants from you that you feed him the way he should be feed the reality of the fear of Allah. Now when you feel as though a judge and you remember Allah subhanho wa Taala you constantly obey Allah and never ever disobey Allah. That's the reality of fearing Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

Hakata

00:03:51--> 00:03:54

see Allah, no way you should be

00:03:55--> 00:04:06

done just say feed. When it comes to the crunch, when it comes to the reality you don't really feel a loss of parallel with data. You don't pay your price on time when allies

00:04:08--> 00:04:22

come close to price come to the price and respond to the call of praise. You don't reply to Allah subhana wa tada with a large set of tools you did this. You didn't do it. When Allah told you not to do this, you still do it. That's not the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:23--> 00:04:32

it de la Hakata Fie Allah. No, it should be Fede. And the month of Ramadan is the month of fearing Allah.

00:04:34--> 00:04:34

Allah.

00:04:36--> 00:04:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala wants you to feel out of fasting.

00:04:41--> 00:04:58

Allah wants you to be conscious of him out of fasting. This faster you're fasting right now on the first day you just fasted for the last six days, and you still got another 21 days to God. Allah subhanho wa Taala wants you to acquire his speed and his consciousness.

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

Fasting

00:05:02--> 00:05:03

to be conscious of Allah Subhana

00:05:06--> 00:05:26

Allah subhana wa tada wants you to increase a light soldier wants you to strengthen your fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the month of Ramadan. And right now after fasting to Allah six days and today is the seventh day, you need to assess yourself now and look at yourself, did you increase? And did you achieve matakohe? In the past six days I'll be fasting.

00:05:28--> 00:05:28

A question

00:05:30--> 00:05:37

a very important question that you need to pose to yourself. The past six days though you had fasted,

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

and today is the seventh day

00:05:41--> 00:05:46

do you find yourself more conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala more fearing of a

00:05:47--> 00:06:04

more mindful of Allah subhanho wa Taala you need to assess yourself. Seven days, I'd already gone past one week out of four weeks of the month of Ramadan had already gone past. You need to look at yourself right now and say you know what, there are increased?

00:06:05--> 00:06:09

Because if we didn't, then that's a very serious concern.

00:06:11--> 00:06:27

If you look at yourself right now, and he asserts itself now and you realize that you did not increase your Dakota lives or you did not increase to become more mindful to Allah subhana wa autonomo fearing of alive, though, again, then you have a serious concern for you to be concerned about.

00:06:29--> 00:06:34

Because the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, may be someone

00:06:36--> 00:06:36

who

00:06:38--> 00:06:45

may be someone who is performing fasting, and the only thing they get out of fasting is hunger and thirst.

00:06:47--> 00:06:53

There are people out there from us. It could be me, it could be me. Oh, yeah.

00:06:56--> 00:07:08

Exactly what the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he described them. They fast in the month of Ramadan. And the only thing that I changed out of their fasting is hunger and thirst. That's the only thing that I achieve.

00:07:09--> 00:07:10

That's an early achievement.

00:07:12--> 00:07:16

What I mean, that's the only thing they achieved. That's exactly what the prophet Muhammad Allah said, had made mention

00:07:17--> 00:07:30

that some people fast, and they fast in the month of Ramadan, and the only thing that I achieved the only thing they earned the only thing that I acquire is hunger and thirst, or messenger of Allah. What about rewards?

00:07:31--> 00:07:34

What about the tacos, Allah subhanho wa Taala had made mention

00:07:35--> 00:07:37

of fasting. Why?

00:07:38--> 00:07:49

Unfortunately, not the top person that achieves taco out of your fasting, whatever reward, unfortunately, not even the type of person that achieves the rewards of fasting. So what did you achieve out of fasting, just hunger and thirst?

00:07:51--> 00:08:00

What you fasted like everyone else, you wake up, like everyone else. You did not eat and drink from dawn to dusk from

00:08:01--> 00:08:09

everyone else? Why is it the other people managed to acquire? And you did not. There's a serious concern here.

00:08:10--> 00:08:14

And that's why you might assess yourself today, after seven days of fasting.

00:08:16--> 00:08:43

You're going to look at yourself and say, you know, I don't feel any difference. Between the day I began fasting and Terra after seven days, and next week, after seven days, in which you get through halfway through the month of Ramadan, and you still feel the same thing. And then by the end of the month of Ramadan, you're gonna compare yourself to the beginning of the month of Ramadan, and you're still the same. And then you become like the type of person that the Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah mentions

00:08:44--> 00:08:49

some people fast, and the only thing that acquired of their fasting is hunger and thirst.

00:08:51--> 00:08:57

Why? Because number one, my brothers in Islam intention was wrong from the very beginning.

00:08:58--> 00:09:04

intention near the intention was incorrect from the very beginning.

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

You did not intend

00:09:08--> 00:09:09

the acquire

00:09:10--> 00:09:21

your intended out of your fastings for you to blend in with everyone else and to become like everyone else. You look around and you wake up in the morning and you saw everyone else fasting. So for that you fasted look.

00:09:24--> 00:09:32

And you looked around and you saw everyone not eating and drinking so you did not eat and drink because you wanted to blend in. And then by the end of the day, when the sun sets

00:09:34--> 00:09:40

on the table right in your face because everyone else is breaking their fast becoming Mr.

00:09:41--> 00:09:45

naive, as the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says,

00:09:46--> 00:09:46

No If

00:09:48--> 00:09:56

you follow what other people do, he doesn't follow it because you believe in it. You follow it because you saw other people doing it.

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

And the Prophet Muhammad Allah Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

On top of character,

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

don't you ever become naive?

00:10:06--> 00:10:07

This strong?

00:10:10--> 00:10:22

Strong, consider yourself reinforce your belief and do what you believe. Then do it because other people are doing great because you believe in it. Because a lucky man did you did good

00:10:23--> 00:10:26

because it's a call of a loss of heritage upon you.

00:10:27--> 00:10:33

You are fasting not because everyone else is fasting. You are fasting because Allah subhanaw taala commanded you to fast.

00:10:34--> 00:10:47

You are fasting because the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at fasted, you are fasting because you are not quiet. You are fasting because you want to please Allah subhana wa Tada, you're fasting because you want to do the right thing. That's all you're fasting.

00:10:48--> 00:10:55

But Subhana Allah, unfortunately, of the seven days, one week already had gone past. Can you believe

00:10:56--> 00:11:00

one way to really go past? It's like a blink of an eye.

00:11:02--> 00:11:05

We haven't, we haven't even come to terms

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

of accepting the reality in the month of Ramadan had begun.

00:11:11--> 00:11:20

And look at it now. It's already when we passed, assess yourself. Look at yourself, because that's what the prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam used to do. He says himself?

00:11:21--> 00:11:22

certainly do.

00:11:23--> 00:11:27

And he commanded the successor. So it says something to

00:11:28--> 00:11:42

assess yourself. evaluate yourself, the way they assess you. So when it comes to everything else, when it comes to you, my brother and sister, when was it last? They assessed yourself and assist you even

00:11:43--> 00:11:50

when was the last time you said that between yourself and he assessed itself and evaluated yourself and he said, You know, I've been doing good in this area.

00:11:51--> 00:11:54

I've been doing better than this area I need to refrain away from and keep away from it.

00:11:55--> 00:12:01

Rarely, because Islam is about assessing yourself, not about others assessing you

00:12:02--> 00:12:25

the problem that we've got, we wait for others to assess us. We work with someone to say you know what, brother? How can we ever be coming to the masjid? Oh, yeah, you know, I need to start coming to the masjid. You know, some of the assessee to remind you to come to the masjid. Rather than reading the Quran. Yeah, you're right now you work for someone else SSE so now you start to read the Quran Quran? No.

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

No way for other people to assess you. And you know,

00:12:30--> 00:12:44

and then assess other people, you assess yourself. We've got two problems. We wait for others to assess us. And we assess others and we forget and neglect ourselves. Assess yourself. Look at yourself,

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

by yourself, judge yourself,

00:12:48--> 00:12:51

as the law says,

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

has civil enforcer

00:12:55--> 00:12:55

of law and

00:12:57--> 00:12:57

was

00:12:59--> 00:13:19

an icon. judge yourself before you are judged by Allah subhanho wa Taala in the hereafter. Why you didn't before Allah Xhosa was your deeds upon in the hereafter in this dunya in this world, you can do you can add he can do a lot of good deeds. But there's no judgment in the hereafter this judgment, but there's no good date.

00:13:21--> 00:13:40

Have you assessed yourself because the month of Ramadan? One of the lessons that we learn out of the month of Ramadan is to give you the time and space for you to judge yourself for you to assess yourself. And what we got already gone past the month of Ramadan. Did you really assess yourself my brother in Islam? And if you didn't, then you need to assess yourself today.

00:13:41--> 00:13:42

Look at yourself.

00:13:44--> 00:13:44

Stop waiting

00:13:47--> 00:13:51

for other people to come and assess you. No one knows you as much as you know yourself.

00:13:52--> 00:14:00

And then pretend because at the end of the day, no one can reward you except Allah subhana wa Taala say you want rewards from Allah azza wa jal not for mankind

00:14:01--> 00:14:03

for mechanics is not what a Sunni face.

00:14:05--> 00:14:07

woman cannot is not only do

00:14:10--> 00:14:23

we have a Margaret's for the sake of Allah and the Messenger of Allah, migrations for the sake of Allah and the Messenger of Allah and Margaret for the sake of this dunya for the sake of a woman getting married to a woman, then their migration is what they migrate it for.

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

What are you fasting?

00:14:27--> 00:14:33

What are you praying? Because the second part of the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:14:35--> 00:14:49

When he says that some people fast, and the only thing that they get and achieve out of their fasting is hunger and thirst, and other people pray. Other people pray and the only thing they get out of the presses exhaustion.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

So your first thing during the day, but some people only get out of their fasting hunger and thirst, and then you are praying, annoyed and the only thing that you get is getting

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

Why'd

00:15:01--> 00:15:10

you get tired? Ah, so Pamela you got tired? You need an aching What about your email weapon their weapon then?

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

Why don't you look into your email? Did you increase a man?

00:15:15--> 00:15:18

Do you feel that sense of connection between you and a loss of an author?

00:15:21--> 00:15:25

Do you feel that sense of connection between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala after this

00:15:27--> 00:15:27

voluntary

00:15:29--> 00:15:44

my brothers in Islam lemme tell you something about this a habit of the unknown and the true righteous believers. A true righteous believer on my brother and his thumb when he just praise to Allah subhana wa Tada. He feels that he had taken a step closer to Allah xojo

00:15:46--> 00:15:49

that's the true moment. malvazija makers from amongst them.

00:15:50--> 00:15:54

I truly believe that my brother and his thumb when he prays to God,

00:15:55--> 00:16:00

he feels they had gone closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala one step

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

just to knock out

00:16:04--> 00:16:09

a true believer when he remembers Allah subhanaw taala wants on his time and he says

00:16:11--> 00:16:15

he feels they have been drawn closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:16:17--> 00:16:18

He feels that

00:16:19--> 00:16:20

true. Amen.

00:16:23--> 00:16:26

You all know the story of the magician's of frown.

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

When they come and tell us mozzarella,

00:16:30--> 00:16:42

mozzarella salad Salam came back after he left Egypt he came back and he came back with a mission from Allah subhana wa tada which a lot of Masai Salaam to go and preach.

00:16:45--> 00:17:01

And Allah subhanho wa Taala strengthened and reinforce Masada is Salah with miracles, miracles that fits in that conforms with the Roman era of around at the time in which magic and magicians was so prevalent.

00:17:02--> 00:17:40

So Masada returns back to for around and he shows him all those miracles I stick turning into a snake, a hand that just gets under his arms and then goes and goes under his arms again it goes back to normal. And all those miracles Allah subhana wa tada made appear on the hands of Masada before for the hour, and it was a challenge. So what it will do for our own lotto lottery, he went and gathered these musicians, and it was a time an era of magic. He gathered his musicians, and they all came with the sticks and roses Allah subhana wa Taala makes mention of him not only once or twice or three times 70 times.

00:17:41--> 00:17:43

Allah mentions the story, the big challenge.

00:17:45--> 00:17:49

The big challenge between masa and for our most

00:17:51--> 00:17:52

for our has the magician's on his side.

00:17:55--> 00:18:04

And they stood face to face. And they said almost the magician said almost should we cast on our ropes and sticks

00:18:06--> 00:18:25

or should you throw and cast your stick? Someone said but Anton, you throw your ropes and sticks. So Allah subhanaw taala makes mention of him and I don't want to get too much into the depth of the story. Allah subhanaw taala says that sticks are rubber stamped into snakes and all these different animals

00:18:27--> 00:18:33

become a little bit petrified. So Allah subhanho wa Taala told him not to have them be afraid the loss of habitat is with you.

00:18:34--> 00:18:41

So Allah subhanho wa Taala commands masala salam to throw his steak what happens? That steak becomes this gigantic stack of snakes.

00:18:43--> 00:18:49

That's not the story that I want to talk about. I want to talk about from what happened then. What happened then when the magician saw that

00:18:51--> 00:18:53

when the magician saw the realized

00:18:56--> 00:19:01

it's not magic. There's no way any magician on the face of this earth can come up with something like this.

00:19:03--> 00:19:04

So that was convinced.

00:19:05--> 00:19:15

They acknowledge and they were convinced you know that what mosaic came with? It's not the fabrication of any minecon it is the Christ of Allah subhanho wa Taala for

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

all prostrated to the Lord of Masada Salaam.

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

I want you now to be with me

00:19:25--> 00:19:29

10 seconds before rewind. Where were they challenging

00:19:31--> 00:19:54

when they saw what they were challenging, and they saw the miracle of Allah subhanaw taala like that turn from a steak and ate all the ropes and all these things and their snakes or whatever animals they had there. They frustrated to Moosa, obviously not to Masada. So number two the laws of Moses a respect. And then they said, Man, I will not be masaharu we believe in the law.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Okay, fast forward, what happens after that?

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

wrong turns around and says you're supposed to be with me.

00:20:03--> 00:20:09

You came to defend me. He came to support me. Now you stand with my enemy.

00:20:12--> 00:20:18

I'm gonna chop your hands and your legs together your right hand to the left for your right foot with your left hand.

00:20:20--> 00:20:39

These people what would they those positions what would they just want me to know enemies of Islam? no enemies of Masada Islam. They can't the contest and the challenge Masada is Salaam. Amina Amina my brothers in Islam. I just want you to stay ponder and I want you to stop at that one minute. One minute.

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

They came to challenge

00:20:44--> 00:20:53

and then after that, they surrendered to Allah subhanho wa salatu salam. So the threat comes from for our I'm gonna chop your hands. I'm gonna chop your feet.

00:20:54--> 00:21:02

One minute. What did they do? They got scared and said no, no, no, no, no, no. Okay, if that's the case, please. After one minute

00:21:03--> 00:21:05

60 seconds of a man

00:21:07--> 00:21:21

Allah subhanho wa Taala made them to be history and allow them to be mentioned to the day of government versus to be mentioned about them to the day of judgment from the level they were from being those who came to challenge Allah and His Messenger into those who came to support a loss of one minute he became a Muslim for decades.

00:24:11--> 00:24:25

You face that threat. What you're saying stance? You're gonna say you know what are you gonna do with me? I'm gonna get to the gemba are you gonna buckle and surrender after one minute of Amen. They saw with the eyes they saw the and eyes

00:24:26--> 00:24:49

forward with Masai Salaam they surrendered to Allah subhana wa tada became a reserve Allah subhanaw taala just one minute before that there were enemies of Allah azza wa jal, they came to challenge most Allah subhanho wa Taala what's happening to us with all this fasting and prayers, a reading of the Quran Karim and attending the masjid. What are we shall weaken our Amen. There's something wrong there. My brothers in Islam. I want you to assess that tonight.

00:24:51--> 00:24:58

Make the as part of your assessment tonight. Figure about your business tomorrow. Forget about your family. Just vote tonight

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

and assess

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

Forget about yourself. Assess your relationship with Allah subhana wa tada how's your relationship with you analyzed origin?

00:25:07--> 00:25:10

Where do you stand with you and Allah subhana wa tada How strong

00:25:13--> 00:25:22

is your amen? What progress did you practice the last week in the month of Ramadan? Even your beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was shocked.

00:25:23--> 00:25:25

He was amazed

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

and

00:25:27--> 00:25:39

shocked and amazed to see someone, no one experienced the month of Ramadan and Allah subhanho wa Taala did not even forgive them. He was ascending the member first step, he says, may the nose be rubbed on the ground. This

00:25:41--> 00:25:57

is the second step while he's ascending the member, may the nose be rubbed on the ground the Sahaba again, curious to know who is the Messenger of Allah and third step the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam assenza member and he says May the nose be rubbed on the ground. So that said, O Messenger of Allah, Who is he?

00:25:59--> 00:26:07

So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says the one that lives in the month of Ramadan experiences the month of Ramadan and Allah subhanho wa Taala did not forgive this since

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

even your beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is amazed from such a character from such a personality from such a person that lives the month of Ramadan, first in the month of Ramadan, encounters the month of Ramadan and comes out of the month of Ramadan Unforgiven.

00:26:26--> 00:26:35

It didn't even make sense to the Prophet Muhammad Salah it's like someone gets in the shower comes up thinking even more. doesn't even make sense. They just had a shower.

00:26:36--> 00:26:49

He's still stink. What did you do in the shower? It doesn't make sense. And he got in the shower of the mercy of Allah which is the month of Ramadan and still come out of the month of Ramadan Unforgiven, that doesn't make sense, either.

00:26:50--> 00:26:55

But it's all about that one minute my brother in Islam, one minute can be a turning point in your life.

00:26:59--> 00:27:01

One minute, can change your life.

00:27:03--> 00:27:24

One minute, if you stop, pause and ponder, you could change your entire life and reconnect with a loss of Hannah hautala and reconnect with a lot of soldiers so strongly. That's why my brother and Islam the month of Ramadan is the month of pondering, contemplation, thinking, reassessment,

00:27:25--> 00:27:54

evaluate evaluating your relationship with a loss of Hannah Montana and how can you even be closer to Allah azza wa jal, so take opportunity of this month, seize opportunity of this month. And make sure by the end of this month, you're a lot more closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala, and you're forgiven by Allah azzawajal. Otherwise, I'm sorry to say you become the one that the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says may be someone who first in the month of Ramadan, and the only thing they achieved out of the fasting is just thirst and hunger. molars are not mixed from them.

00:27:56--> 00:27:59

And my brothers in Islam, the month of Ramadan is the month of opportunities.

00:28:01--> 00:28:05
