water in a bottle about an hour of Mr. Nava, alumna and founder and founder Mr. Linton I was a nightmare.
To Anna Malini all the rubbish roughly solder us in the MBA.
I'm Dr. Melissa Neff, totally I'm about to press due to Allah subhana wa Tada. And please be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are testify that there's no god except Allah. Allah testify that Mohammed is the Prophet and the Messenger of Allah once again, my brothers and my sisters in Islam I think Allah subhanaw taala for this lesson gathering, and gathering that we get together for the sake of Allah in the house of Allah to please Allah and to know more about Allah subhanho wa Taala and when we are only two weeks away from the month of Ramadan, ask Allah azza wa jal to make us from amongst those who live to the experience the next month of Ramadan in their life, and ask
Allah Subhana Allah to bless this month for us and to bless this month for the entire Muslim Ummah and to make us from amongst those who make the most out of the month of Ramadan, I mean Iran, I mean, are you ready for Ramadan? My brothers or my sisters? This is not a question that I'm asking to receive an answer from, but I'm asking myself before anyone else am I really ready for the month of Ramadan? Am I really ready for this blessed month Allah subhanho wa Taala had prescribed upon us yada yada Dena Amano kutub la cama cama, cama, kuchibhotla de la la quinta taco and others a believer, lots of Hannover, Allah prescribed upon the fasting. The way he did on the previous
nations before you say would acquire and increase your taqwa la la cuenta con so Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us clearly in the Parana Karim, that one of the primary purposes of fasting the month of Ramadan, so you could acquire the chief taqwa and what's taqwa is that you feel a loss of Hannah mattarella during the day and night, you feel a loss of Hannah or Darla, when you're on your own and with others, you feel Allah subhana wa Taala through every single moment of your life, you feel a loss of panel data through every single situation of your life. You feel a loss of handle data through every single circumstance in your life. That's the taqwa that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants
you to acquire and gain in the month of Ramadan and the month of Ramadan once again my brothers and my sisters in Islam, it is only less than two weeks away two weeks from now, we shall commence and start the month of Ramadan and the problem that will always have an it is a constant and continuous problem with the vast majority of Muslims that will all start preparing ourselves for the month of Ramadan just the day before the month of Ramadan or on the day of the month of Ramadan. The moment the day of Ramadan or the moment the month of Ramadan is announced a brand starts to prepare themselves it's like everyone now wants to wants to start warming up for the month of Ramadan and
that's where we get it wrong. And that's why we always get it wrong and that's why we experienced a month of Ramadan another month of Ramadan and a third month of Ramadan and we don't even get the most out of the month of Ramadan as if we come out of the month of Ramadan the wave enter the month of Ramadan when we should be coming out of the month of Ramadan in a better state than what we entered the month of Ramadan. Ramadan is about for you to better yourself for you to get yourself closer to Allah subhanaw taala for you to connect yourself to a larger origin for you to increase the Hillel in your life and for you to abandon and get rid of the harm in your life for you to
better your Salah for you to better your relationship with
But why do we get it wrong is because we don't even prepare for the month of Ramadan before the month of Ramadan and we are talking about two weeks before the month of Ramadan. So are you ready for the month of Ramadan? Most of us my answer say no. Yes mentally I am yes or another the month of Ramadan will start in two weeks time. Yes I want to do this. I want to do that. But did you really warm up for it? Do you
Do you really prepare yourself or did you really get yourself ready for the month of Ramadan? The answer is no. What extra What did we do to prepare for the month of Ramadan? I want to ask myself right now what did I do right now two weeks before the month of Ramadan to prepare myself for the month of Ramadan I'll answer nothing at the moment prepare anything for the month of Ramadan besides that I've taken some time work besides have informed my school and former boss is gonna be the month of Ramadan besides that I'm not gonna eat during those times and I'm gonna eat during those times. But did I
didn't really prepare myself for the month of Ramadan I didn't because the preparation for the month of Ramadan it's more about where you're gonna in the month of Ramadan and the days are you gonna take off in the month of Ramadan and the time that you're gonna take of work in the month of Ramadan that's not preparation for the month of Ramadan. The true preparation for the month of Ramadan is why have you prepared to get yourself closer to Allah azza wa jal that's a preparation for the month of Ramadan
so what did you really do before the month of Ramadan right now two weeks to go for the month of Ramadan in its own light to prepare for the month of Ramadan two weeks before the month of Ramadan What did you prepare for
what positive steps did you take for you to say you know what, this is what I'm gonna do in the month of Ramadan and I'm preparing for from now
we're still in those days and we are waiting a few hours before the month of Ramadan starts for us to stop the Haram
Some of us are even entrapped in the web of the iPhone and fall in the hole of the shape on and the trick of the shape and we start planning on on in our minds know in the month of Ramadan starts I'm gonna stop the huddle so I'm waiting for the month of Ramadan stop stop the Hara when you should be avoiding the Hara from before the month of Ramadan after the month of Ramadan during every single moment of your life. But this is the typical for that we have with the month of Ramadan starts I'm gonna stop the Hara I'm gonna start worshipping a large soldier. That's why when the month of Ramadan ends, you go back to home and you stop your Salah. Why because your religion is only based
on 30 days of the year. But when you want to base your life around this them and base your religion, every single moment of your life, then you need to be prepared for the month of Ramadan before the month of Ramadan. So when you experience the month of Ramadan in the month of Ramadan and you get the most out of the month of Ramadan.
Do you really get the most out of the month of Ramadan?
Do I get the most out of the month of Ramadan? Ask yourself about your experience last year of the month of Ramadan? Did you get the most out of the month of Ramadan? Did you achieve what you want to achieve in the month of Ramadan? Well, let me answer on your behalf on my behalf. We did not even probably a change 10% of what we're going to show you in the month of Ramadan last year.
We probably didn't even achieve 10% of what we wanted to achieve in last year's Ramadan.
And this is going to be the same thing. You have a big plan.
Yeah, the huge plan, you have a big ambition that you want to achieve 1-234-567-8910 and then the month of Ramadan commences and starts and he doesn't even achieve one or two of the things that you plan to achieve. Why? Because you didn't prepare yourself for
the only thing that you prepared for the month of Ramadan, our thoughts,
which let me be fair, it's not bad, but it's not good enough. Your faults are not bad. It's good that you think and it's good that you plan and it's good that you aspire to do 12345 to 10 but that's not good enough. Your thoughts need to be followed with good action.
You need to implement what's in your mind and what you're planning to do. So my brothers and my sisters, the month of Ramadan is less than two weeks away from now. And I'm gonna ask myself the question What did you prepare for the month of Ramadan? What are the preparations or need to prepare for the month of Ramadan number one, correct your intention?
Correct your intention in
the earth we're in nama Luca Manoa Allah subhanho wa Taala gives you in accordance to your intention. What you intend for is Allah subhanho data gives you in return. So number one thing you need to purify your heart and correct your intention. Correct this because it all goes back to this
to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala cin CD
so we need to correct our intention that the month of Ramadan is two weeks away from now I need to correct my intention that I want to experience the month of Ramadan and fast in the month of Ramadan to please Allah subhanho wa Taala no one else not because I want to fit in now because I want to be like the rest of the people. I want to fast in the month of Ramadan because I want to please Allah azza wa jal
I want to please my Lord.
And then it's part of my idea and my submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala that I fast because Allah subhanaw taala commanded me to fast number two.
Number two, stop the harem.
are involved in any form of hierarchy, you need to stop it from now. And don't wait for the month of Ramadan to commence
for the month of Ramadan to stop, stop the Haram now. Say you're strong enough and fair enough after the month of Ramadan to also stop the Haram because it's pointless when you stop the hell out
How long must be avoided before the month of Ramadan in the month of Ramadan and Ramadan. I shouldn't be indulging in any form of Haram. And if I really want to get the most out of the month of Ramadan. After the month of Ramadan I stopped the hierarchy for the month of Ramadan.
And that part of taqwa
part of taqwa is not that you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah. It's not that you have a law of quantity of worship, that you pray Allah and you follow the law and you read the Quran, Karim Allah and you play a part of taqwa. And before you increase from your voluntary worship. Part of taqwa is that you keep away from the heroin. You abstain away from the heart of that pot of copper. And if it's a choice, if it's a choice between increasing from the voluntary worships and abstain away from the heroin, then abstaining away from the heroin is giving a lot more preference over you increasing your voluntary wishes. You've got a lot of people these days that rather increase from their
voluntary worships probably more fast more rich put on more do this and do that at the same time know which one is given more preference over the other was given more preference is that you stop the Hara, and abstain away from the Hara before you increase from your voluntary issues. So if it's a choice between increasing rebirth and increasing voltage, if Allah azza wa jal and keeping away from the Hara, no stop the Hara before you start increasing your follow through issues.
That's given a lot more preference over the other.
side Now is the time that you stop the harem.
And train yourself to feel lots of headache.
Ramadan, not only in the month of Ramadan because it's so easy for you to feel as though during
the month of Ramadan is so easy for you to feel lots of paradata First of all, lots of
sun, there's no shame around for them to insinuate the whisper in your mind. Secondly, the environment, the environment of people, everyone fasting the impro worshipping Allah azza wa jal and the blessing month in which Allah God blesses that month in hopes you to be someone who feeds the last panel down in the month of Ramadan Safaricom allies in the month of Ramadan, it's not a big thing or it's not a hot thing. It is a big thing in our lives origin. It's something great, but it's not hard. What's hard is that you feel Allah subhanaw taala outside the month of Ramadan, so train yourself, Train yourself and accustom yourself different Allah subhanho wa Taala before the month of
Ramadan, so when you experience and you live in the month of Ramadan, not only that you are someone who is alive, but you use the month of Ramadan as a platform for you to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala and then after the month of Ramadan becomes a lot more easier to fit Allah subhanaw taala
once again in the month of Ramadan so easy. You find the worst of people the worst of Muslims on the face of this earth they feel as though during the month of Ramadan. Those who are constantly demanding how long Ramadan stop the Haram in the month of Ramadan
during allies or during the month of Ramadan.
Allah subhana wa tada outside the month of Ramadan Sofia Allah azzawajal before the month of Ramadan, in the month of Ramadan, and more importantly after the month of Ramadan
so you need to be God fearing and pious and righteous after the month of Ramadan. That's not gonna happen. That's not gonna happen if you only feel as though during the month of Ramadan and prepare yourself defeat Allah subhanaw taala that will happen when you prepare yourself for that before the month of Ramadan.
So you could feel a loss of paranoia
once again fearing a lot of Zoda stopping the Hara before you start increasing the good worships and the voluntary worships A lot of people think that fearing a loss of panel data, it's to pray a lot and to fast Allah, Allah and to come to the mosque a lot. No, no, no, no. That comes as a secondary thing. What's more important before you start increasing your worship stylized, is that you stop this
that's a lot more important.
And that's what it means when we say fearing Allah subhanaw taala that's the real fear of allies though they never disobey Allah subhanaw taala
and increase from you issues
for that my brothers and my sisters, the month of Ramadan is around the corner.
And our predecessors, the Sahaba of the law
used to prepare themselves for the month of Ramadan six months before the month of Ramadan.
Now we've got 14 days for the month of Ramadan and we haven't prepared anything
14 days before the month of Ramadan we haven't even prepared anything
at the same time to
prepare six months before the month of Ramadan preparing themselves for this Blissett month why because they want to get the most out of it only 30 days 30 days and most of the month is 29 days. So what are you gonna get out of 29 days
Easy come easy go by the timings
it is your experience of the end of the month of Ramadan
I'll be doing the same lessons for the last few years and sapan Allah
the end of the month of Ramadan
Ramadan from Panama just any moments of experience a new month a month of Ramadan coming in so quick
so how long it's early so quickly experienced one month of Ramadan then the following month of Ramadan comes after for that my brothers or my sisters, this is your opportunity if you really might want to make a big difference in your life. This is your common opportunity for you to strengthen your Eman and get closer to allies
you prepare yourself for it from now as
you prepare yourself for the month of Ramadan from now and the first thing as I mentioned that you need to do is number one correct your intention number two stop the harem
and number three
number three perfect your salon
perfect your Salah
look at the way you pray is a perfect
look at the way established your prayers are they perfect? Stop perfecting your Salah. Make sure that you are praying correctly in accordance to the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. And if you are praying in accordance in the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim start focusing kneel salah and if you are focusing your Salah, stop praying your prayers on time and you are praying on time stop making sure they increase from your Salah stop adding extra serrato this is your phone.
Number three start working on your salon. A lot of us neglect their summer whether they're praying that prayer is not on time or denying their prayers or not praying a perfect prayer not concentrating their prayers or not even praying in accordance to the way Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam when he says Toluca motto on Sunday pray the way you see me pray.
So number three my brothers or my sisters in Islam your
your foundation, because if the foundation is unstable, then the rest of the structure will be unstable.
Your foundation is the Salah. The Pillars of this religion is the salon. So if your salon is not stable if your salon is weak, the rest of the foundation the rest of the structure the rest of the building will be
unstable and weak
and the rest of the structure will be all fasting, you'll see is part of that structure. But how are you gonna have a structure when you have weak pillars
when you have weak foundations, so start strengthening.
Start reinforcing your foundation your pillars and that's your Salah. Start working on your Salah stop praying your prayers the way the Prophet Muhammad SAW center, pray these prayers. stop praying them on time. start increasing from extra voluntary praise, start doing more of that.
That's number three. Number four, connect yourself to the Quran before the month of the Quran. So you could get the most out of the
Can I talk to the Polonica and maybe some of us have not even opened the gate in four months. Maybe from last year Ramadan even opened up
connect yourself to the Chronicle and from now start reading the Quran and getting from there Don't wait for the month of Ramadan to start for you to start reading the
reading the reading from now. So in the month of Ramadan starts, you start reading more of the Quranic name not that you start reading the Quran.
You start reading more,
not that you start reading the beginning, start reading from now start with one page. Then the next day another page Saturday inshallah start reading one page tomorrow, two pages that are often three pages from now to two weeks, every day I'll start increasing until when the month of Ramadan starts. I'll be reading at least one one chapter of the Quran again by the end of the month of Ramadan Alhamdulillah.
That's my minimum goal, the bare minimum that came once in the entire month of the month of Ramadan.
Start with it from now.
I'll start with it from now. That's number four. Number four.
Stop fixing your relationship with your kids.
If there's any tension between you, and any members of your kin start fixing that relationship. If there's any tension between me and my parents, I'll stop fixing this relationship from now. If there's any tension between me and my brothers, my sisters my siblings are stuck fixed in the relationship with them from now I'll start fixing my relationship with my kids because I don't want to experience the month of Ramadan when Allah subhanaw taala opens the gates of the paradise and Allah subhanaw taala shuts the gates of the Hellfire and then I call him call and say all the one that wants good or goodness come forward or the one that wants evilness turn back. I don't want to
experience the month of Ramadan or start the month of Ramadan and there is a rift or dispute between me and any of my kings.
Stop amending your relationship with your kings.
start fixing your relationship with your siblings break that barrier. Two nights ago was the middle of the month of Shabbat and the Prophet Mohammed Salah says Allah looks at his creation on
every single creation of his except to a Muslim and someone who has any grudge or hatred towards in other Muslim
you know, you shouldn't have any grudge or hatred towards any other Muslim towards any Muslim towards anyone let alone for your siblings
Allah forgives Iran on the midnight of the month of Shabbat
Allah subhana wa tada forgives His servants in the middle of Shabbat on the 15th of China and in the north in which a loss of health and forgives him from except a mushrik. Someone who scrubs partners are lots of Pantheon and witches hamdulillah most of us don't have the issue. But then we all of us have an issue is that we have a grudge and hatred towards a Muslim.
That was two nights ago. What's going to happen in sha Allah in two weeks when the month of Ramadan starts.
Start mending your relationship with your kids. start fixing relationship with your brothers and your sisters. And then number six, start fixing your relationship with your other brothers and sisters in Islam.
Then let the month of Ramadan enter and you still have a grudge you still have something in your heart animosity or hostility towards any Muslim
to happen. You need to start working on that from now.
If you have anything in your heart towards another Muslim, or there's a dispute between you and another Muslim try and sorted out before the beginning of the month of Ramadan so you couldn't get the most out of the month of Ramadan. Ramadan enter and you've got something in your heart towards in other Muslim
whether the kings or not
You shouldn't have anything in your heart. That's why in
two weeks before the month of Ramadan, you should solve the problem with any Muslim
girl Rican soul,
but the left half of Shabbat, enter and you still have something to hide towards any Muslim.
Otherwise, Hello dad is not gonna forgive you before the month of Ramadan
to enter the month of Ramadan, not to be forgiven for the month of Ramadan already forgiven.
So to get the most out of the month of Ramadan,
not working on cleaning myself out working on advancing loss over the loss of Hatoyama, connecting myself with allies.
So number six, I need to start working on my relationship, not only with my kids, not only with my siblings, not only with my mother and father, my brother, my sister, my daughter, my son and everyone else, I need to start working on my relationship with my brothers and my sisters in Islam.
Number seven, my brothers and my sisters,
which goes back to the same point that I mentioned, keeping away from the huddle. If you have any money, get rid of it from now.
If you have any money
this is your time to get rid of the household income, any form of income, unlawful income, any form of food, any form of Haram. Alone, unlawful earning, we get rid of it right now. Because that's not gonna help in the month of Ramadan.
That's not gonna help you. Ramadan
that's going to be an obstacle between you and Allah subhanaw taala between you and the obstacle between you and the obstacle between you and getting closer to Allah xojo get rid of anything hot or
anything tangible that's how long alone will get rid of it right now.
Which brings us to the eighth point. If you are in dogs to any bedroom habits, this is your time that you stop it
any bad habit you stop it right now don't wait for the month of Ramadan to stop. If you get away from the month of Ramadan to stop you'll stop at the beginning but then you're gonna relapse and go back to halfway through the month of Ramadan. That's what's always happening. But stop it from now.
Stop it from now. And Allah subhanaw taala will support you if you want to support and help you. If you want to support you and help you in stopping the Hara, Allah will support you and help you but you need to work on it.
You need to work on it.
For that my brothers or my sisters, it's so important for us to prepare ourselves. And there's a lot for us to prepare ourselves. But these are eight points that I mentioned to you if you take them and start working on them. Well I hope you're not in the month of Ramadan and our show you if you start working on them from now you are going to experience a different Ramadan than any other experience in the past. This is Ramadan is going to be by far the best Ramadan that you've ever encountered and experience in your life. Why because you were prepared for
nothing you just waited for the month of Ramadan to start and then you put yourself in the month of Ramadan unprepared but this time, you are going to experience the month of Ramadan and you are prepared for the month of Ramadan. And that's why you are going to get the most out of the month of Ramadan
and see what Allah subhanaw taala gives you in return will law you'll experience the best moment in your life, you'll experience the best Ramadan in your life. This is Ramadan must be different than every other Ramadan in the past. Why because you are prepared for
you took on those eight points and you work on them. you're implementing them in your life. And it
Ramadan commenced and we are prepared for the month of Ramadan. For that my brothers and my sisters, there's a lot of work ahead of us. And I'm sorry to say now so late. It's not late so late next week is gonna be a lot more late. And then after That's too bad. So if you're not gonna do anything about it now, it's just gonna become harder later on and do not procrastinate.
Procrastination killed us all.
Procrastination is what's always holding us back. Procrastination is what's always destroying us. Procrastination is always disconnecting us from Allah azza wa jal stop procrastinating.
Bah what kilala depends on a lot and move forward.
So what can Allah dependent Allah subhanho wa Taala wanna die just as the Prophet Muhammad SAW
I'm Sarah and then be held back but move forward be strong and when you have the right intention Allah subhanaw taala hope you ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this from amongst those who are prepared and ready for the month of Ramadan and mean monogamy inshallah my brothers and my sisters I invite you all to the AMA pre Ramadan barbecue this Thursday, this coming Thursday at ama center revolt is starting at 7:30pm we're priced out of Asia at 7:30pm every single brother and sister are all welcome to attend.
