It is a blessed month, even with the current situation that we're in, um, he at the masjid at ama usually this time in the month of Ramadan This place is full

00:01:03--> 00:01:17

full of brothers full of sisters who come together to celebrate the commencement of the month of Ramadan and to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala together bow look around me towards Mora left in front of me the message is empty on I feel

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

the grief of the massage and I feel that this method and every other method around the world is crying that in the month of Ramadan it's empty. But in sha Allah even though the massage the empty Our hearts are full of massage in our homes are full of massages, and I love what only increased to them a surgeon so my brothers and my sisters with the current situation that we're in, I'm very optimistic at the beginning of the month of Ramadan and I say to you Ramadan Mubarak, Ramadan Mubarak I'm Allah subhana wa diabliss this Ramadan tea, Ramadan Mubarak Allah subhanho wa Taala blisters Ramadan to all of us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us live. This is Ramadan in the best

00:01:56--> 00:02:31

day my Allah Subhana Allah give us the ability to make the most out of this season Ramadan obviously this is Ramadan is going to be different is going to be strange and it is strange. I'm here right in the middle of the message in the email and there's no one around when we used to have hundreds of people in this message. But insha Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala will continue to keep us connected to one another whether it's online or inshallah spiritually because of hamdulillah worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala is not limited to a place worshipping Allah subhanaw taala is not limited to a time and worshiping Allah subhanaw taala is not limited to an event. And today few hours ago, or

00:02:31--> 00:03:08

less than two hours ago, the month of Ramadan had come in salami I'm talking about here in Sydney in Australia, less than two hours ago the month of Ramadan had started less than two hours ago the month of Ramadan has began. And when the month of Ramadan begins the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us what happens exactly at the commencement the beginning of the month of Ramadan. Allah salaatu wa Salaam says that when the month of Ramadan commences and starts Allah subhanho wa Taala will open the gates of the paradise and there's not even a gate of the paradise that's closed. And Allah subhanho wa Taala was shut the gates of the Hellfire and there's not even

00:03:08--> 00:03:48

one gate of the Hellfire that's open and Allah subhanho wa Taala will chain and lock up the Shire thing. So less than two hours ago for us here in Australia may be global Allah subhanaw taala alum by next year was 100% every single place on the face of this earth will have the paradise open for them and the Hellfire Club for them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala lock up the same thing. The paradise had opened all its gates and the Hellfire had shut on its gate and Allah subhanho wa Taala locked up the shayateen regardless whether the massage at the open or not. Regardless, there is this Coronavirus or not regardless of this crisis or not right now, the paradise and all the gates of the

00:03:48--> 00:03:55

paradise are open. Right now all the gates of the Hellfire shot. What do we learn out of that?

00:03:56--> 00:04:33

What do you learn when the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that the gates of the paradise are open and this is not even one gate of the paradise that's closed. And when the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam says that all the gates of the Hellfire are shut and there's not even one gate of the whole fire that's open. This is an encouragement for you and I and right now we need a lot of encouragement. This is an encouragement for you and I to know that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to enter the paradise that's why he opened all the gates of the paradise for you to enter the paradise and Allah subhanho wa Taala closed the gates of the Hellfire because Allah

00:04:33--> 00:05:00

doesn't want you in the hellfire. Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't want to see you in the hole fire. Allah subhanaw taala doesn't want your destiny to be in the Hellfire Allah wants you for the paradise. Right now Allah subhanho wa Taala had opened all the gates of the paradise and Allah subhanaw taala shut all the gates of the Hellfire in which Allah is saying to you in one way or another, all my Muslim servants, the one that's fasting in the month of Ramadan or right now is the month of Ramadan in the month.

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

Ramadan just commenced and started. Oh wangi for my paradise and I don't want to see in the Hellfire Allahu Akbar. One more optimism. Do you need my brother my sister? One more optimism one more encouragement one more inspiration a after another right now Allah subhanho wa Taala open all the gates of the paradise for you and Allah subhanaw taala shut all the gates of the whole fire and Allah subhana wa tada And on top of all these Allah subhanaw taala incarcerated and change the shouting, why did Allah subhanaw taala do that for Allah subhanaw taala to give you a head stop Allah subhana wa tada is pushing you forward, Ally's daughter has given you this inspiration for you

00:05:40--> 00:06:19

to be with him. Allah wants you for him, he doesn't want you for the shavon That's why my brother or my sister the month of Ramadan is such a blessing. Whether the massages are open or not. Whether we are locked in or not. Whether we are going through this crisis are not the message are part of our lives. The massages are part and parcel of our lives. But at the end of the day, what's more important than the message is Allah The Lord of the message that we connect the source Allah Subhana Allah says the Paradise is open for you. And the Hellfire is shut and I say are locked up but doesn't stop ever he the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues to say then I call I

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

00:06:23--> 00:07:04

a better Oh the one that's seeking goodness come forward. And although on the secret evil seeking evilness Tim back run as a caller calling maybe you can't hear it with you. But you hear it with your heart. This caller is saying to you Although on the seeking goodness come forward, although on the seeking even this term back because this is the month of goodness and evilness, but doesn't stop ever he is more that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us and a lot more than one could even comprehend. And imagine in the month of Ramadan. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues to say, and Allah subhana wa tada will continue to save people from the Hellfire every single night

00:07:04--> 00:07:42

from the lows of the month of Ramadan. Every single night. Allah subhanho wa Taala make an announcement. Allah subhanho wa Taala will make an announcement every single night about his servants about a group of people Allah subhanho wa Taala make an announcement of his servants in which Allah subhanho wa Taala was saving from the Hellfire so every night leading to the end of the month of Ramadan from now to the end of the month of Ramadan, whether the month of Ramadan is gonna be 29 days or 30 days. Allah subhanho wa Taala will make a declaration or announcement every night in which Allah subhanho wa Taala say people from the Hellfire while you're on I need the aim

00:07:42--> 00:08:23

tonight. What you and I need to enter that will be from amongst us Allah subhanho wa Taala will declare us to be safe from the Hellfire tonight. I don't want to wait to the end of the month of Ramadan. I don't want to wait to halfway of the month of Ramadan. I want Allah subhana wa tada to make me from amongst us tonight from the first of the month of Ramadan. The ama nails from amongst those that Allah subhana wa tada will say from the Hellfire we should aspire for this. A believer loves Allah subhanho wa Taala so much he aspires for everything. He hangs on Allah subhanho wa Taala has mercy never lets go of Allah subhanaw taala His mercy and the month of Ramadan is the month of

00:08:23--> 00:08:59

mercy. The month of Ramadan is the month of Ramadan. The month of Ramadan is the month of forgiveness. The month of Ramadan is the month of generosity. And right now we're in the month of Ramadan Can you believe that we started the month of Ramadan Subhan Allah we are right now at the beginning of the month of Ramadan but fortunately some people are still warming up for the month of Ramadan when they should have warmed up for the month of Ramadan days if not months before. Right now we are at the beginning of the month of Ramadan where all the gates of the paradise had opened. Were all the gates of the Hellfire shot where Allah subhanho wa Taala chains and locks up the shale

00:08:59--> 00:09:26

thing. And right now there's a caller that's calling Are you hearing him saying although on the seeking goodness come forward, this is your opportunity. This is your time, on the seeking evilness term back. You don't belong in this month, the month of Ramadan carries with it the Rama of Allah the forgiveness of Allah the blessings of Allah and there's no room for the Rama forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon those who are seeking evilness, even though Allah subhanaw taala forgives everyone.

00:09:27--> 00:10:00

Even though Allah subhanaw taala encompasses everyone. So Rhonda, my brother and my sister were in dire need of Allah subhanaw taala drama and part of this Rama my brother and my sister in Islam is for us to be hopeful to be hopeful of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanaw taala says la de la toma Rahmatullah. Do not be hopeless. Do not be despondent, do not be dispelled from the drama of a loss of a job and the month of Ramadan is the month of Ramadan. The month of Ramadan is the

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

Have mercy

00:10:01--> 00:10:11

of Allah subhanho wa Taala though we want to forgive us, part of Allah subhana wa tada we want Allah subhanaw taala to accept us part of

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

our journey we want Allah subhanho wa Taala to save us from the hellfire.

00:10:18--> 00:10:56

We want Allah subhana wa tada to declare us from amongst does the show enter the paradise and never ever experienced the hellfire. And also, my brothers and my sisters, part of the regime of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one Allah subhanho wa Taala to alleviate this pain and suffering that we are all going through all humanity. Every single human being on the face of this earth is suffering from this virus from this pandemic. Part of our journey is that we want a loss of power with the honor to lift the suffering. We want Allah subhanho wa Taala to ease the pain that we are going through that's part of the Rama of Allah and inshallah is gonna happen in the month of Ramadan. I'm

00:10:56--> 00:11:01

optimistic not only that Allah Subhana Allah will forgive us in the month of Ramadan. Not only that,

00:11:02--> 00:11:29

except us in the month of Ramadan, but inshallah before the month of Ramadan ends inshallah, this pandemic will end because we are believers with dependent on large xojo we are believers, we rely on a loss of Hannah Montana, and we are believers that believe the other affairs of mankind and the creation of Allah are in the hands of Allah, in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever Allah subhanaw taala wills it will happen wherever Allah subhana wa tada

00:11:30--> 00:12:11

ordains it will happen. It's all in the hands of a license origin. So this is Ramadan is going to be a different Ramadan. Bobby is going to be a unique Ramadan and I'm talking to you right now. Usually this time of Ramadan I think you might This place is buzzing. It's buzzing with your beautiful faces. It's bustling with your beautiful presence, but sapan en la you look around, it's empty, and we are forced to be in this day. It's not that you and I have chosen this. But at the same time I'm optimistic. I believe I should always be optimistic during the easy days and the hard days. I believe I should be more optimistic during the days of hardships, tests and trials. So we are

00:12:11--> 00:12:49

optimistic and inshallah we can appreciate the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala but right now what we're gonna do in sha Allah, we're gonna turn our homes into masajid right now, you should be establishing praise or your place up right away with my kids or my family, or even at home on each of my sons to leave the praise. Or let's allow them a shadow each one of my sons to relate the list to like I have the throwaway phrase, I want to also establish my house and turn it into a message we can turn our homes into massagin because connecting yourself to Allah subhanho wa Taala and your connection to a large zoa jet is not limited to the masjid. It's not limited to the mind. It's not

00:12:49--> 00:13:19

limited to the harem. It's not limited to Mecca, it's not limited to Medina, it's not limited to anywhere. It's only with Allah subhanho wa Taala these are just platforms. platforms are right now these the test Are you turning your home into a Masjid? Are you reviving the spirit of the throwaway prayers at home? Are you praying out with your family, then you don't deprive yourself from the throwaway prayers just because you're not coming to the masjid. That shouldn't be a reason for you not to pray that away, established prayers with the family established prayers with whoever it is.

00:13:20--> 00:13:21

Whoever it is,

00:13:22--> 00:13:48

whoever it is, or you have established players, whether it's your wife, whether it's your spouse, your children, your mother, your father, even if you're on your own established at the right price, then the profits off from the throwaway praise. The month of Ramadan he is different. The month of Ramadan this year is a bit of a strange Ramadan, but in the light of Allah, it's going to be a unique Ramadan

00:13:49--> 00:13:58

and I want myself and inshallah to continue reviving the spirit of the spirit of Ramadan, the way we usually revolve the spirit of Ramadan and Ramadan.

00:13:59--> 00:14:23

Just because we're not coming to the masjid. It doesn't make any difference in my life. Just because then come to the masjid doesn't make any difference in my life doesn't make any difference in your life doesn't make any difference in our in our lives. inshallah, we're going to revive the spirit of the message in our hands. And that's the character of a true believer. We connect ourselves to Allah subhanho wa Taala not because of the boundaries that surround us, we connect a source of Allah subhanaw taala because of a large religion.

00:14:25--> 00:14:57

And this is something that we learn from the Prophet Mohammed Salah line it was Selim has the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam connected himself to a lot. When he was in Makkah, when he was in Medina, when he had JAMA, Jama when he was by himself when we had when he had 1000s of followers when the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam had the upper hand or when the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was persecuted by the people of Christ. In every cell Allah also continued to maintain his religion with the loss of Allah tala always. This is what we learn from the problem. homosassa so my brother, my sister, as the month of Ramadan commences and starts, I

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

encourage and urge every single one of you

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

to revive the spirit of Ramadan in Yon

00:15:03--> 00:15:11

live Ramadan DC, like every previous year, the only difference is it's going to be everything they usually do.

00:15:13--> 00:15:33

Everything they used to get from the masjid, you get a home, everything they used to come and do you implement deprive yourself this the test right now. This is the test I believe this is the test, maybe some halala one of the mysteries of Allah subhanho wa Taala one of the wisdoms of alliances origin in which Allah subhanho wa Taala what

00:15:34--> 00:15:49

the law is origin wants to test us that we encountered on we experienced as far as in the month of Ramadan to see what we're gonna do. That's one of the wisdoms of Eliza to say what are you gonna do? Are you always limiting yourself just to worshiping Allah azza wa jal Ramadan and just worshiping Allah Subhana.

00:15:50--> 00:16:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala 24 seven. Well, the true believer he's worship de la SOTA, who worship just 24 seven nothing stops me from Allah subhanaw taala nothing comes in between me and Allah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't put anything between me and him until he put something between you and Allah azza wa jal remember that one. Allah never puts anything between you and him. Unless you put something between you and Allah subhana wa tada and run Allah subhana wa tada everything. Allah subhana wa tada had removed all the barriers that used to exist, he removed the barrier of the whole further Allah subhanho wa Taala closed the Hellfire he removed the barrier of the shavon Allah

00:16:30--> 00:17:05

subhanho wa Taala locked them up Allah subhana wa tada remove the barrier of punishment the loss of power to attend this month into a month of mercy and Allah subhanho wa Taala will continue to give and given given this month and Subhana Allah how amazing it is that the month of Ramadan has started. And just for you in order to experience Ramadan This is a great blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us, you know for Allah subhanaw taala to allow you to experience another Ramadan in your life. This is another blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you just on this just on this on its own, we need to be appreciative and thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala that

00:17:05--> 00:17:22

right now Allah subhanaw taala make us to be from amongst us had experienced Ramadan in their life, so much to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, may the nurse be rubbed on the ground, and he said three times May the nurse be rubbed on the grandmother and must be rubbed on the ground. The Sahaba said Who is the Messenger of Allah?

00:17:23--> 00:17:58

The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he's the one or she's the one that experienced the month of Ramadan, and yet not forgiven. Even the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was shocked to someone that will live and experience the month of Ramadan yet the sins are not forgiven. So for a year and already experienced even one second of the month of Ramadan is a great blessing from Allah subhanaw taala upon us all, run Allah subhanaw taala blessed us and you know what, my brother and my sister in Islam, keep that in mind. Maybe one of the reasons that loves the petrodollar allowed us to live the second of the month of Ramadan because Allah loves us.

00:17:59--> 00:18:36

It's part of the love of Allah subhanaw taala another sign from the sons of Allah subhanaw taala upon us that Allah Subhana Allah loves you and Allah subhanaw taala loves us. Allah subhanaw taala loved us and Allah subhana wa Taala has given us this opportunity for us to experience another merciful month, like the month of Ramadan love this month in Rania Subhana Allah the month of Ramadan has started for us and particularly the ones that are living in the eastern side of Australia in Sydney it started and the next few hours Ramadan would have started in most of the world, Ramadan would have started and most of the world and in sha Allah who start the month of

00:18:36--> 00:18:41

Ramadan with an intention will renew our intention to Allah subhanaw taala

00:18:42--> 00:19:20

they are Allah, our Lord and Ye servants. Yeah Allah we acknowledge everything's in your hands and nothing is in our hands. And yeah, Allah we are seeking your mercy and you're the one that has mercy and the other one that can forgive us animals can forgive us. So the month of Ramadan is a blessed month and Allah Subhana Allah bless us all right now to be from amongst us. He had experienced and encountered another Ramadan in their life. I know it's a different Ramadan. It's a challenging Ramadan, but in sha Allah who are up for it in sha Allah with a strong to adapt to the current situation. We are believers at the end of the day. What makes us believe it's not because of online.

00:19:20--> 00:19:55

My name is Ahmed Ahmed. We've got Muslim names. Now we are believers because we have strong character. We adapt, we adapt for any situation we adapt in any circumstance. That's what makes us to be believers. And that's what we learn from our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So my brother and my sister in Islam, adapt this in Ramadan, and be a true believer in Ramadan. And trust me and my brother, my sister, if your intention is for the sake of Allah, and you want to please Allah azza wa jal and you want to really revive the spirit of Ramadan even while you're staying at home. 24 seven, trust me, my brother and my sister. You will experience them as

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

beautiful Ramadan in your life, even they haven't even stepped foot in the masjid. Why? Because

00:20:00--> 00:20:24

On your hands, it's in your hands. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whenever he's to set out for any of his expeditions. He's the second the Sahaba of the lotus, a lot of weird deaf people behind in Medina, for every step that we take, they share the rewards with us. For every mountain that we climb, they share the rewards with us for every value that we send to you. They share their rewards with us. So there's a habit tender said or messenger of Allah.

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

We are putting the time and effort and we are sacrificing and are sending back home with their families. And they share the exact same rewards with us and they said yes, they wanted to be with us, but they couldn't make it. They had an excuse, and that's why they stayed behind. But because of their intention, Allah subhanaw taala rewards him the same and exact same rewards. They are getting Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, my brothers and my sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala will continue to give us the rewards, the same and the exact rewards that we usually get in the month of Ramadan. This enormous thing I have the rewards of coming to the massage and the rewards of praying the

00:21:00--> 00:21:31

throwaway prayers and the rewards of listening to the talks and the rewards of the brotherhood and sisterhood and the rewards of staying in the masjid Allah subhanaw taala will continue to give us the exact same rewards if not even more this Shiva was telling him why because as the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said habits are humble. They have an excuse and we have an excuse. So rest assured, if you are genuine and sincere in your intention that you want to please Allah subhanho wa Taala and you want to make the most out of the month of Ramadan this year, even though you will be staying at home 24 seven and you want to even step foot in the masjid Rest

00:21:31--> 00:22:08

assured Allah subhanaw taala give you all the rewards. But if your intention you know what I'm gonna take it easy this year Ramadan I'm gonna be complacent. I'm gonna get myself too comfortable, then you know what, you'll be at home and other people are happy. They'll be getting their awards and you won't be getting anything. As the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in nomina malbun net all the deeds according to the intention so my brothers and my sisters in sha Allah wishes from the bottom Maha Ramadan Mubarak a blessed Ramadan ask Allah subhana wa tada to make the season Ramadan, a blessing Ramadan a rewarding Ramadan a joyful Ramadan, a fruitful Ramadan and insha Allah

00:22:08--> 00:22:47

We want to stay connected to you. I want you to stay connected to us and together in shallow continue to be connected to Allah subhanaw taala because no one will disconnect us from Allah and no one will disconnect us from one another.
