All praise is due to Allah the Exalted, we praise Him we seek His help, his guidance and his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of our sins and the evils within ourselves. Whomsoever Allah guides, there is no misguidance for him, and whomever he rightfully causes to be led astray, there is no guidance for him. And I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah alone. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam peace be upon him is His servant and final messenger. Allah
subhanho wa Taala reminds us in the Noble Quran, what is translated as, Oh you who believe, be conscious of Allah as he deserves, and do not die except in a state of worship, a state of submission.
You will believe be conscious of what use of Allah and let every soul reflect on what you have sent ahead for tomorrow for your afterlife, for the Day of Resurrection, and be conscious of Allah verily, Allah is aware of all that you do.
Alhamdulillah that we were given life to make it to the month of Ramadan Alhamdulillah that we were given life to make it to the last 10 days and 10 nights of Ramadan and Alhamdulillah that we have made it to this day now the 29th day of Ramadan, may Allah subhanho wa Taala accept from us and keep us amongst the grateful a shake it in and amongst those who are consistent, and amongst those who are accepted and McMorran Allahumma Amin
part of the transition from the end of Ramadan to the rest of the year this important link this important transition is the question of acceptance. The wound where are we accepted by Allah subhana wa Tada and what are some signs as we finish this last day and a half and we strive even more he put in even more effort the time is not yet over. What are some signs that a person's Ramadan is truly accepted? In one of the most unique times in all of history? Having faced this unprecedented Ramadan? We want to know as we transition out of this blessed month that our deeds are accepted. And in order to answer this question, I want to take us back 1430 years ago, the Prophet salallahu
alayhi salam his last moments before he departed from this world, the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam in the 11th year after the Hijrah as he began falling ill and as his illness intensified, and he started showing signs and mentioning things that would indicate this was his last time or last phase in this world. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, for example, it was known that during the last year Gibreel Roddy Sam reviewed the Quran with him twice, usually it was once per year of Ramadan. Another of the signs was the famous statement when the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said, Allah has given a slave of his a choice, the choice between this world and what is with Allah,
what is with him, and the slave chose what is with him, and Abu Bakr began to cry and he was the only companion the gathering who understood what it meant. It was referring to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his final moments, his statement to fault Lima all the Allahu anha his statement to fall to me that he would depart soon from this world. And as his sickness intensified, and he began fainting, and in his Salatu was Salam, approximately nine days before he passed away, the final idea, the entire Quran, all of it came to fruition with the final meaning what to completion with this final verse.
I have to add one of certain Bacara a powerful verse that basically summarizes the rest of the message. What telco uma total Gerona fee ILA law all three. Mattoon worth. Kelowna FCM Casa to whom La La moon and fear the day in which you shall indeed return to Allah be conscious of that day prepare for that day, every soul will be given what it deserves what you earned what you worked for, and no one will be treated with injustice. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stopped praying with the community at this point, and asked Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah to lead and the first sign of his leadership will be called the Allah one that was to come in this final moment that we're getting
at one of the last advices from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of Salah of Salah the prayer, that prayer, maintain your prayer, maintain your prayer, the one who maintains their prayer, as we know from an authentic hadith is guaranteed protection from Allah in the next life. The one who does not maintain their prayer does not have a guarantee. And on the final day, on a Monday, the 1201 The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sweating and going through the pangs and pains of death. And as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is sweating and he's in the lap of a shadow the Aloha, he would say over and over and over again La ilaha illAllah. In an in Mattila saccharides
there is no God but Allah truly there are pains for the experience of death. And then He repeated the final statements they final passage, not Alladhina anomala while they him Mina nabina was so the Athena was shahada, it was solid Hain Allahumma fiddley what honey will help me be rafiqul Allah Allahumma raffia Allah Allah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would repeat the statements over and over again with those who are blessing by Allah from the prophets, the truthful, the martyrs and the righteous. And then he made a DUA, oh Allah forgive me and have mercy on me. Oh Allah, forgive me and have mercy on me. I choose to be with the exalted companions meaning to go back to Allah. I
choose the exalted companions. Oh Allah.
The Prophet sallallahu sallam was lifting his finger, repeating these words and he took his final breath, ending on these words, passing away in the lap of Alisha, but only a long, long hunt she began to cry. And she said, ma todo su De la ma todo su law and the people heard that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away and here define the darkest day for Medina and the darkest day for the Ummah, the most challenging time for the Sahaba hearing that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was no longer with them. How did they respond? How did they react? Some began to cry some began to make dua others were in denial. There is no way the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam
left us there's no way he left there's no way he passed away. And Omar will hotdog but the Allahu Anhu was in the masjid of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam refusing to accept because of how difficult it was that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam had died. Abu Bakr heard the news King quickly back to the masjid and he walked straight into where the Prophet salallahu Salam was on the lap of eyeshadow on the Aloha Abu Bakr on the long run, uncovered the face of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he made two out for him. You are more valuable, more precious to me than my mother and my father he also to Allah. And then he said, You have tasted the death that Allah
decreed for you. There is no death. After this. He kissed his forehead and then he walked back out to the people. And this was a defining moment in Islamic history. Because when Abu Bakr Radi Allahu and walked out, people were in panic. People did not know how to deal with this challenging moments. And oh bla bla bla bla the Allahu Allah and His voice was loud, and when Abu Bakr to try to silence him so he could speak or I'm going to refuse. So I would like to walk to a different area of the masjid and the people followed him. And when the people followed him and he began to speak, people listened. And we were probably alone and then said the famous words he said oh people are you and
us. Men kind of include me Abu Mohammed and Ferdinand Mohammed and combat oh man can I Abdullah for in Allah Hi yo lamet Whoever amongst you used to worship Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the know that he has indeed died. And whoever used to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala the know that Allah is Ever Living and will never die. And don't misunderstand this the Sahaba were not worshipping the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the people were not worshipping the Messenger of Allah and His salatu salam. But the way they were responding with their actions was as though this is the reason they were worshipping. It is as though they were only worshiping because of the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I'm referring to the people who were basically turning away, and this happened after the Prophet sallallahu Sallam departed, but I will bet throughout the long run is reminding them you are not worshipping only because Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was here you are worshipping Allah and Allah is always here.
here for in the law how you layer moot and then he recited the idea from Saudi Arabia and Iran. One Mohammed on the law rasuluh called holla at me a copy here Olson, after imata Oh, Cuttino collab tomada or Fabi come to the end of the iron that Muhammad salallahu Salam is simply a messenger amongst you like the messengers that came before. If he dies or he's killed, are you going to turn on your heels? meaning are you going to turn away from the truth? Are you going to lose your direction and your purpose? And aroma? Hotdog Radi Allahu Anhu finally said it was as though I heard this idea for the first time even though he recited it many times before. He said I fell on my knees
finally accepting the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam had passed away.
And we say on this note, and this is the link with why we went back to the question of Obul acceptance in Ramadan.
That whoever amongst us worshipped Allah only because of Ramadan and increase their worship only due to Ramadan they know that Ramadan is leaving and will leave. And whoever worships ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada in Allah how you lay a mood Allah subhanaw taala is ever living always there throughout the year throughout your life in every place in every time. Turn to Allah subhana wa Tada. This does not mean that people are worshiping only because of Ramadan. But don't make it a habit to turn to Allah in Ramadan and to turn away from him afterwards. May Allah subhanaw taala keep us consistent. One of the signs of Ebola in Ramadan is that you take something from it, and a beautiful point to
demonstrate this is a Hadith from a Telemedia in which you shall know the Aloha asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about an item for the interpretation of an item. This is the saying of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada Wallah Deena yo tuna Ma. Tomoko boom Margiela. Welcome google home wodgina To
whom Isla Robbie him Raggio phone and those who whatever good they do the still have fear they are fearful of dying and returning to a lot returning to their Lord. Now these are people who are doing good deeds, but still their hearts who do Boom wodgina They have some fear, and Nahum, Isla, Robbie and Roger on that they are going to return to their Lord. So she asked I showed all the Aloha ya rasool Allah are these the people who drink alcohol and steal and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded, No Oh daughter of a Saudi. These are the people who used to fast and pray and give in charity, but they feared that these deeds will not be accepted from them. So they used to do even
more good and used to excel beyond other people. And this is the continuation found in the in the tough seat for in the next area.
You can use your own feeling hierarchy well whom law has been Akun. They used to excel in their good deeds, and they are racing ahead of other people. One of the causes of people doing good throughout the year throughout their lives must be an element of fear. And this is the type of fear that does not paralyze someone, it does not cause anxiety where you stop doing any good. The believer is always in a state between a Rajah hope and fear. And if if that balance is perfect, if there's equilibrium in your understanding of the concept of acceptance, then we're always worried. I don't know if my deeds are accepted, but a man and Watty serve and we worship Allah with optimism with
hope that my deeds are accepted. But we're in this state where we are unsure was it accepted or not? Let me do extra good. Let me remain consistent, so that I can guarantee that my deeds will be accepted, because the one who is consistent and sincere and God conscious is amongst those who are classified as Animoto clean, and Allah subhanaw taala says about him autoclean in Nanaia Takbir Allahu Mignon motorically and Allah accepts from those who are God conscious, may Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst them or to clean and allow us to be amongst an McBurney and those who are accepted in all of our deeds. So in other words, to take from Ramadan throughout the rest of the
year, and to have a worry a small fear that motivates you and makes you productive, was I accepted or not that element of fear so long as it does not paralyze you and you have hope as well will cause you Inshallah, to remain consistent and to be classified amongst the Napoleon. The fear of not being accepted leads to consistent good deeds, will it go inside your own fly rod while hula has served me? So this is a proof that this is actually a good trait to have. I'm worried where my deeds and the Milan accepted or not, and if they were not accepted, what do we have? What is left, we ask Allah to accept from us after this month, we want to revisit and have a strong habit with the things
that we found ourselves increasing in of Salah improve your Salah if you were not praying for Yom the entire year at least at least begin praying to Allah cause for that cause before you
asleep the same way you were able to, to pray today we throughout Ramadan, pray something consistent. If you are not fasting the entire year fast three days of every month this was an advice given by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if you found yourself only giving sadaqa Ramadan increase your sadaqa throughout the year if you found yourself increasing your knowledge during this COVID era, listening to a lot of lectures and reminders online and having access to many to many scholars and masajid around the world, then find yourself inshallah with a consistent habit right after Ramadan raise to it don't wait raise to good deeds immediately after Ramadan so that you are
amongst the accepted but earn and dua make sure you have a strong relationship with the Quran the speech of Allah and with dua, so many people made so much dua during these last tonight and even tonight inshallah we still have one more night. So many people made so much passionate dua for forgiveness, for guidance for improvements for blessings for success, for happiness, for relief for Shiva for a cure for really for the entire Ummah for protection and relief for our brothers and sisters. Keep your DUA consistent throughout the year. Take that strong habit of dua slots and witted if it is not consistent for you make it consistent until the day you return to Allah. So
again, number one is the element of fear will cause us to remain consistent. Number two, choose specific habits that you pursued in Ramadan and follow through with them immediately. The more you do, the more you excel, the more likely you are to be amongst a Soviet born those who raced ahead. And Allah Subhana Allah says about a Serbia or hola como para boon, they are closer to Him. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst them. And finally number three, recognize and reflect on how despite the fact that masajid are closed around the world, still, our Ummah adjusted and adopted Alhamdulillah for the flexibility of this religion handler for the flexibility of Islam, we were
able to adjust and to adapt to have people learn how to pray for them for the first time in their own homes. People pray today we have for the first time in their homes, people learn how to adjust and fast Ramadan from within their homes. And not necessarily in the massages. This was a positive thing. If you saw yourself and you observed other people doing more in the month of Ramadan, during this type of challenge, this type of dark time this type of trial and tribulation, than it is a proof that you can do more anytime of the year. If you can do this in the month of Ramadan. In this era, in a COVID era, you can do it anytime of the year. You can improve and give this atmosphere of
Ramadan within your home in the month and the day right after Ramadan. And we ask Allah to keep us consistent upon that religious responsibility was the one exemplified by Abu Bakar worldly along line when the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam departed and people did not know what to do. Religious responsibility is something we all have religious responsibility is for you to take what Allah subhanaw taala has revealed and then to apply it in the correct manner, in every time and place equal is a man and woman can in every time and place to take what Allah subhanaw taala revealed and to act upon it and apply it in a any type of leadership fashion. And this is with one's family
individually if you live alone, even by yourself, with your community, online and offline, to exemplify this, the Ummah experience, its darkest day when the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam departed from this world, it was the darkest day for the ummah. However, the loss of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was followed up by what? By the leadership of the companions that were raised and cultivated in terms of their personalities, their understanding of their religion, they were cultivated by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. As a result, they took their consistent good deeds like Abu Bakr and Omar and others, long after the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam departed
from this world as a result, what happened to the Ummah due to this consistency in leadership, individually and as a community individually within your home as a family, and of course, at the national international level, what happened to the OMA, what happened to the folds of Islam in terms of the bounds of where Muslim more Muslims were 50 years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Islam spread east, north, south and west. 100 years spread even further. 500 years later, the most advanced civilizations in the world this is around here. 1000 were the Islamic cities and this is something that even non Muslim historians attested to reaching you know what they refer to
as the golden ages of civilization. And then fast forward 1500 years so we're not there yet. 1500 years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said his final words, our OMA will be the largest religious body in the world in less than three decades. Well, long, Adam. And the reason we bring this up is not to focus on quantity, but quality, who are the people who led this ummah forward who allowed law international law to spread? They had the proper
Our understanding of leadership the proper understanding of the religion, and they took from the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam before he departed and they acted upon it consistently after he departed, that in Allah Hayyan lair Mottola is always there. And the religion of Islam is there until the end of times of Ramadan is one month out of the year. Allah subhanaw taala is there for you the entire year. Turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala in gratitude, turn to Allah Subhana Allah inconsistency turn to Allah subhanaw taala insincerity and may Allah subhanaw taala keep us sincere, consistent and accepted Allahumma Amin remember that Allah subhanaw taala says, Who are you hi ru La
ilaha illa who he is the EverLiving there is no God bless him for the room oh Holocene Allah Who Dean worship him sincerely alone in this religion. Al hamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen All praises due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds we ask Allah to forgive us for all of our sins, the major and the minor the past, present and future we asked them also palletize to forgive us for our sins that are public and the sins that are private the sins that we remember and the sins that we forgot of Julio holy ha That was stopped federal law you would have confessed all through it now who will have a photo?

We asked Allah subhana wa Tada to send His peace and His blessings upon his final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his family and all of his companions and those who follow Him until the end of times, Aloma Amin, brothers and sisters, we have less than a day and a half left of this precious precious month. Take advantage while many people will become distracted with thoughts of read. Focus in these last moments take advantage of tonight as well. Focus and make more dua focus on your plan to transition out of Ramadan and then as soon as Ramadan and hit the ground running
with your deeds so that you are amongst those who are accepted. Without a crusade you're gonna feel Hira to raise to do good after Ramadan as well. There is always a dip after Ramadan let us not be from amongst those who dip in that time. If the OMA can strive and come back and increase and improve and spread across the world meaning in terms of numbers and quantity, and in terms of quality all around the world, if the only can continue to persevere, after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam and the most difficult time for the Ummah, we can persevere at any time. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us consistent and to accept from us. And we ask Allah to grant us many more
years to experience many more Ramadan's, we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to forgive us and to make us amongst those who are resurrected with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and our loved ones in the highest levels of Jannah Aloma Amin, Allahu Mo Farah liniment, meaning me not while Muslim in a Muslim at Iman Humala, Mewat Allahumma fiddley Whalley, Deena Why do you want to do it?
