Um, it likes up from us and you mean just a heads up? Just kind of question I know I don't want to start any wars here but

So I do encourage you guys, if you've enjoyed this experience, I
don't want this to be a day of like, I know there's gonna be this automatic sadness, everyone was on 360 I try to smile till the end. And then I turn off my computer and I cry a little bit. It's inevitable. But alhamdulillah it's I want to I want us to kind of change that narrative a little bit as much as we can because I feel more positive and more excited even you know, after the fourth year reading at home than I than I have any other year because just community has just been so so beautiful to all of you who have contributed to that experience and who have made this such a special Ramadan for all of us.

To close off the session on hydro and you've been doing those beautiful Ramadan, the eyes in the middle of the night Alhamdulillah in the last 10 Nights a pleasure to have you close off Ramadan 360 with us for the final time this year As salam o Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh disciples for joining us why they can sit down what I can probably touch is that more feeling better coffee from Sister household and may Allah Subhana Allah bless and reward all of you mashallah see many of the same names I saw on day one when I did the first session may Allah spotted excerpt from you all and reward you for your consistency.
I see many familiar names from the nightly dua as well that we do at 3am. Eastern Standard Time. We did our last one last night may Allah accept from all of you. Let's get right to it in sha Allah Allah Tala because our time is almost up in the month of Ramadan. Let's go ahead and get started. We ask Allah subhanaw taala first and foremost to accept from all of us and to forgive us for our shortcomings. And to allow us to leave this month with a clean slate with purified hearts. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala for consistency throughout the year along the mean.
Allah subhanaw taala free frequently reminds us of how short life is that our time is limited. And what we'll do inshallah I will dive right into the story here. It's not really a long story, but the cause of Revelation we are talking about surah number 45 is 24 I saw some people sharing the length of Hamdulillah you can utilize this to follow along. What is the saying? of some of the disbelievers these were idol worshippers, Allah subhanaw taala says while all Ummah here in FAIA tuna duniya
wama you really gonna
be the money coming in, in
June, and they argue the idol worshippers there is nothing beyond our worldly life we die and others are born and nothing destroys us but the passage of time. Nothing destroys us but the passage of time. Allah subhanaw taala says and yet they have no knowledge in support of this claim. Why am I telling me that he can mean rather they only speculate in whom in liable noon? One of the sayings about this and I'm going to read the Arabic record translate along inshallah Tada and that'd be Hooray not only Allahu Allahu Overeater reports on in Obeah Sona Allahu Allah, he was salam upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Canada, he at opodo and the people of Judah Helia so pre
Islamic ignorance, in NAMA, your Licona Lady Wonder how Wahoo Allah do you have liquid you need to know where your Hina they would say that the only thing that causes us to die, to cease to exist is the night and the day. And that is what causes us to perish. You need to know while you're here gives us life and takes away our life. In other words, they are giving the attributes of God to the passage of time, they are giving the power of God to something like the day and the night, the day in the night. What does this mean? It means this is how you calculate time the passing of time so this is why they are referencing it for all Allahu Taala so Allah subhanaw taala then said, we'll
call uma here in Lafayette and dunya now moved to an area where you liquid Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala said these were this was revealed. And then here's a really interesting point to keep in mind. These idol worshippers and you know this from the Sierra, they believe in Allah subhanaw taala. Many of them they would say that these idols are bringing us closer to God, obviously this is shook, and idols have no benefit whatsoever to but they wouldn't deny that once they die, they would come back to life that Allah would resurrect them, they would deny the Athlon it is one of the greatest traps of the devil for a person to neglect or reject or be heedless of the life that is to come. One of
the greatest traps of the Devil May Allah protect us all. This is also the statement of some atheist philosophers. They don't even accept and acknowledge the Creator rather than deny the existence of the Creator and the resurrection. And some of them have gone as far as saying ridiculous things like the cycle of life in the universe is every X number of 1000s of years and it will continue to perish and restart on its own. It's been doing this for infinite number of years. This contradicts science. This contradicts reason this contradicts the fifth floor this contradicts revelation. So when they say Well, no, you're not gonna let down only a data what is a doctor, by the way means time? And
this is a really interesting word. Can someone tell us where in the Quran it's utilized other than in the Surah? There's only one other passage and I think many people know it. Only one the other place in the Quran in which this word Davao is used, who can tell us inshallah Tada.
So look to Lhasa salasar uses the word Al Asad. Yes, it is Surah to insert solitude in son is also known as the nickname is Surah to the surah of time, because it begins with at idle in sunny Theano minute daddy Has there not come upon human being a time in which they were not referenced? They were not mentioned in other words, and I'm going to share with you something interesting.
Actually, Sister helps mentioned one of the classes that I taught is into the mirror the introduction to Sahih Muslim with an emphasis on self development. And we covered a hadith in
Class A few years ago, and one of these narrations it is in Sahih. Muslim it is in book number 40 or chapter 40, the book of proper phrases, and there's a header for this section that says babinda here on Submit down the pro him mission of cursing time. Why? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I heard oh sorry, I'm gonna go on record I heard the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam say, Baal Allahu Allah azza wa jal so this is a Hadith Bootsy Bon Allahu as though again, you the NIV knew Adam, you're cool. Yeah, he better Bella coolin How do Camilla honey butter down in the Anadarko? Kalibo Leila who want to huddle for either shake to Palmer Uma. Allah subhanaw taala says in the
Hadith woodsy here, the son of Adam offends me, the son of Adam referring to these idol worshipers and others, because they say May time be doomed, they would curse time. And Allah says but none of you should say May time be doomed for I m time meaning I alternate night and day and if I wished I could end them both. And I want to take some lessons from this for our theme today that time is up number one this chapter is exclusive to Sahih Muslim for those interested in the different books of Hadith This is a very exclusive Chapter The chapter of proper phrases. Number two this is a Hadith kotse what's the difference between Hadith Bootsy and Hadith never we have never read the prophet is
saying some Aloha isn't it? Have you could see hear it's about Allah subhanaw taala it's saying something and it's preserved in meaning and usually verbatim according to the most correct opinion. But it's not necessarily that the words themselves are in the exact specific order. The narrator may have changed something that's insignificant by accident, but it's not something significant but the meaning is preserved. Hadith woodsy by the way cannot be recited in prayer. So Quran is reciting prayer the words of ALLAH preserved in meaning and in wording.
And then you will have the third point from this Allah says Subhana wa Tada that children of Adam the son of Adam offends me when he curses time when he curses time now offends me you Vini in Arabic means harms me but obviously this is not what it means if you understand the context, Allah subhanaw taala cannot be harmed by us. You cannot harm a lot in the home Laolu law Sharia rather it means that you are ascribing something to Allah that is not the fifth manner you need to be it's not be fair to say this about Allah subhanaw taala to curse time. Another lesson is that Muhammad and Anna mashallah for the quick notes, another lesson, the people of Jackie the, the point here the story is
when something bad would happen, and you'll see this in 2020 and onwards 2021 2022 When something difficult, I should say would happen like a disaster, natural disaster, loss of wealth, a pandemic anything else, when that would happen? The idol worshipers would curse time they would curse time and last for parents are saying do not curse time I created time when he says no. I am time means I created time. And the narration the Hadith makes it clear what does that mean? I am time is I created time Allah subhanaw taala is not literally time no law created time. It was beyond time and space. We cannot say nice things about loss of Hannah to Anna Lisa can with any issue. So Allah
subhanaw taala tells us I control the vicissitudes of time. And if I wished I could end them both meaning I created this universe. I gave you the sun and the moon I gave you the solar system, I gave you the ability. And he told me we were under the sea Nina what he said he tells us in Surah Tunis, I gave you the ability to observe and to have a night and a day. So you can know the calculations of time basically so you can calculate how things are moving forward. So now the question is, what is the ruling on cursing time? And does this apply to Muslims? Or is this only for idol worshipers? You know, in 2020 I heard a lot of people saying actually, sorry, 2019 before the pandemic, I heard
people kind of insulting the year 2019 They would say it's such a difficult year. It's such a cursed year. It's such a bad year. And they would say on to 2020 a better year with better luck and all these ridiculous things. We don't believe in any kind of stupid, you know, superstition. When people say this year only give us bad this year only give us good we don't accept statements like this. When somebody says my life my time sucks. It's all terrible. We don't accept statements like this. If cursing time as the controller as the honey mentions, if somebody's cursing time, and they're cursing a specific month and they're cursing a specific year, and they're giving it specific
attributes, yes. 2016 as well I remember that. This this could be very sinful. It could be a type of minor shift as well not major shift minor shift by giving time some kind of power. Time doesn't control what happens that your time is not an entity that controls time.
As a way to calculate things, a loss probably gives the ability to calculate things. And so to give it any kind of godly powers, divine powers is very, very problematic.
And of course, some people do this not realizing the words that they use, the jokes that they make are taken from society, from memes, from videos from social media, not realizing times that we fall into these mistakes, and it's very dangerous. May Allah protect us all. If you're talking about time as an observation, or you're somebody saying today we are suffering from the cold weather, we're suffering from today's cold weather, it is not giving time any divine powers, nothing wrong with this. But if you are cursing time, that is a problem. If you are seeing time is passing by very fast, this is not a cursing of time. This is in fact, this is a statement the prophets and Larson
tells us that the end of times it will pass by very quickly. And this is one of the signs of the end times there's less Baraka less blessings in time. So it's not sinful if someone just observing something basic, but to give time any kind of divine powers, or say that it is good luck or bad luck of the time itself. This is very problematic. This contradicts somewhere this contradicts our belief in order that we accept the decree. And of course with this, another of the benefits, the Hadith reminds us and these ayat remind us about the concept of optimism, your perspective. So being an optimistic doer, rather than a self pitying complainer being an optimistic doer, an action taker
rather than a self pitying complainer, always complaining about time always complaining about the day or who was complaining about the year always complaining about the weak person time and insulting time that brings no benefit, in fact, magnifies one's anger, one's pessimism, makes a person less happy and able to cope with what they're going through that week in life that year in their life. What Allah subhana wa Tada wants from us is to be people of action with realistic optimism. And when he tells us in an honors reuse, along with difficulty is ease and he emphasized this twice. Again, in the ayat, it's a reminder for us even when you're going through a hardship
that you do not insult that day, that year, that moment, knowing that there is a great reward for you, as you try to overcome the hardship and you are resilient and you are strong, you're persevering. You're seeking the resources that do the help, the therapy, whatever it may be, that will help you in that moment to keep moving forward. We're always thinking of moving forward towards a loss of how towards healing towards strength, and that He gives us the resilience that we need. So the focus here, the emphasis is positive action, a hope for goodness trusting in Allah's wisdom continuously moving forward. Somebody asked this question, when Allah Subhana Allah says in the
Hadith for any an adult, I am a data I am time. Does this mean it is one of Allah subhanaw taala His names and attributes? And the response is no, it is not. There's only one group known as the Lotteria that messed up with this. And no, absolutely content has shown it is not one of the names of a lot. Why? Because a lot clarifies I created time, I control time. No, it's a creation of Allah, you cannot say it's one of the names of Allah subhanaw taala. Another of the lessons we take from this, when the people are talking about a death at a time. It reminds us in philosophy, we don't need to get into this. But in philosophy, there are so many different concepts that cannot be fully
grasped by the mind. And there's a lot of philosophies about time, don't waste your time with them online. It's not worth the time, a lot of different philosophies like this, but the most important thing is what we are getting to right here, which is the value of your time. Somebody earlier mentioned when I asked where is dad mentioned when somebody mentioned a lawsuit, and also there's another word for time. Allah swears by it. And when the law swears by something, this is an important reminder like an alert pay closer attention. In fact, a few years ago, we had a YouTube series in Ramadan about the Oath of the Quran. Allah swears by time Allah swears by Aloha Allah
swears by certain things at Fudger Allah Subhana Allah swears by a loss of time by time, all of mankind is in loss
in Alladhina amanu um, you know, Saudi has also been helpful to us of sub using your time in this world, the limited time that Allah gave you to believe in Allah to do righteous actions to advise and call towards truth and to call towards southern patients. And to have patients it's a reminder for us Surah two outside one of the shortest sort of the entire Quran, people memorize it at an early age or early time of practicing Islam. And when they want to rush away from Allah in prayer, they recite the surah not because they don't know anything longer but because it's a very short Surah So it's convenient for them to leave the prayer in a quick manner and I don't mean once or
twice when there's an emergency, but rather as a habit in life. Every time they pray. They want to rush away from Salah. So they just want to recite the quickest thing possible and in this very
A Surah, you're reminded of how quickly your time will pass by, and that those who use their time to worship Allah are the most blessed and successful people, the farthest away from loss in the in Santa Fe, of course, Allah swears by time and one of the Sunnah, and according to some scholars, there's a difference of opinion, the Sahaba learned from the Prophet salallahu Salam, when they would parked in a gathering, when they would leave basically that gathering, they're talking, socializing, hanging out, and everyone's going there away, they would recite sort of philosophy at the conclusion, as a reminder, so time is limited, if you want to be as far away from loss as
possible, recite and reflect on solar to let acid because Allah has given you a blessing that is greater than all the wealth that you have. Everyone who's listening to this now is using some kind of device. And everyone who is using some kind of device therefore has some kind of wealth, whether it's a laptop, whether it's a computer, a phone, something else, you're listening to this on some device and Allah has blessed you with worldly things, the worldly things as you and I know, they come and they go worldly things Money comes and goes profits and losses throughout life it fluctuates. And sometimes you lose things and you regain and you can regain them and inshallah
increase as well may Allah put back in your wealth, but what you will lose of time, you can never regain what you lose of time, you can never regain what you lose of time you can never regain. So it is more precious than any kind of worldly wealth. It is more precious than all the wealth of this world. And someone who has wasted decades of life and has reached the final moments and the Angel of Death comes to them. If they were to be given an opportunity to give up their entire kingdom of wealth, billions of dollars, if they must, in order to live another five minutes to worship Allah, to repent to Allah, to pray to Allah, to do an act of worship, they would be willing to give up
every worldly rich, every type of wealth, every type of thing that they have. And so all worldly riches are nothing compared to the time that Allah has given you. You are rich with the time that you have right now you are wealthy. But here's the thing you don't know when your time is up. You don't know when your last moment is there. And when you lose this moment, you realize it's an opportunity that is unique. Sometimes people fall into the trap of thinking, this prayer that I'm about to pray, I'm going to pray many more likely tomorrow, meaning it's just another Salam Tonatiuh it's another fajr prayer. It's another military prayer. It's another Ramadan. But the truth is, it's
not just another prayer. This particular prayer is its own unique opportunity. Tomorrow's frigid prayer is a different opportunity. Tomorrow's Ramadan is a different opportunity, and those are not guaranteed. So our question here is what happens when time is up? This is our theme at the end of this Ramadan, your time is up. I want you to think in the first person when the angel of death comes to you. And your time in dunya is over your time is up. What will you be thinking and doing? At that time, people will not be cursing time. When your time is up, you'll be thinking about what you did and what you took, what you sent ahead and what you left behind. When your time is up your
opportunity to live for Allah and an eternal reward will end your accountability begins the afterlife for you begins. When your time is up, you won't have the opportunity to pray one good prayer once again, you won't have the opportunity to focus into law cause of prayer with a slow attentive pace at peace in your heart knowing that you are praying properly. When your time is up, you won't have the ability to repent for all of the sins that you've refused to let go of. When your time is up, you won't have the ability to say I love you or I forgive you to someone else to hug your family members one more time to bid them farewell. You've already been given a diagnosis, we
have all been given a diagnosis of leaving this world at any moment. And every moment therefore is a farewell if you did not prepare for your afterlife. And if you do not prepare for it as a lifestyle. When your time is up, you won't be channeling your anger, your frustration, your blame towards Allah subhanaw taala or other people it will be towards your own self. Why did I not do better when your time is up? Why didn't Did I not see how fast time was passing by? Why was I so attached to my desires or people's validation? Why did I care so much about what people thought and not care about what Allah subhanaw taala wanted? Why did I neglect the commands of Allah? Why did I not work harder
for the afterlife? Why didn't I keep trying every time I fell short? Why did I stray from Allah despite everything that he gave me? Why did I not pray consistently and worship consistently and repent consistently? Why was I not a source of hope and guidance and optimism for others? And Subhan Allah at the end of this beautiful blessing month of Ramadan. There's a direct link to the theme that we have today that your time is up what is the link between Ramadan
On and your time, what is the link between Milan and your time? Can someone tell us?
What is the link between Ramadan and your time?
What specific wording that is used in the Quran or the sooner? It's limited, this is true. You're closer to your death gift. The FISA you're on the right track. It's limited, but there's a specific reference we're looking for. We're looking for specific reference of how it's limited, although that's a good response.
The days are limited, limited number of days. Okay, so what does Allah Subhanallah tell us in the Quran about Ramadan? Allah subhanaw taala tells us about fasting in Surah Al Baqarah I believe maybe I have 183 Somewhere around there. 183 Allah Subhana Allah tells us the verse that we hear throughout the month of Ramadan every single year yeah, a Johann ladina or you will believe put him on a call mostly and fasting has been obligated upon you tema cortiva. On the you know, I mean, probably Kamala Khan, goon it's been obligated upon you like the people, some nations before you so that you may gain Taqwa before Allah Subhana Allah uses the word Ramadan for the first time. I'm
Alana is used once in the entire Quran before Allah subhanaw taala says anything else about the month of Ramadan, the very next words two words a yam and MA do that they are counted days fasting has been written upon you obligated upon you. They are limited days a Yemen Madhu that counted days. And what does this mean brothers and sisters, limited time means limited opportunity. Limited time remember, this means limited opportunity. And a moment will arrive in your Ramadan journey in your life in which your time is up in which those limited days are gone. Time is up now. Time is up now. And for those who are living in countries slightly east of us, like in Europe, and this was their
final day of fasting, your time is up. For those who are of course fasting the 29 days, and in a few hours here in the Eastern Time Zone you'll be experiencing the first night of shawanna are really your time is up. Time is up now.
What can we do every day as a habit. Of course live each day as though it is your last take each moment knowing that this is a final opportunity. And my advice to you similar to the analogy given by the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. live as though you are a traveler checking into a hotel for one night. Do not get attached to the furniture don't get attached to the entertainments don't get attached to the play the mutual competition that some people have for a dunya don't get attached race and compete for something that is not limited race and compete for something that is lasting. Can you imagine you're seeing two people, two people right in front of you. They're racing with so
much passion. They're running with so much energy, they're putting down all their money, their sweat, there's tear their blood, everything. And at the end of their race at the end of their competition. There's dust you're looking at. They're like, what are you competing for? What are you competing for dusts, something that will park for you in which worth nothing at all. And then you see another two people and they are competing with one another and they are competing to Jannah they're competing to Jana, with one another to paradise to the forgiveness of Allah Serbia who said, you know, Allah tells us rush, compete with one another. But this is a good competition. You're not
competing at the expense of someone else. What kind of race is worth racing? Is it towards the dunya mutual competition building your quote unquote, forever home there's no forever woman at dunya there's no forever home in this world. There's a forever home in the next life. Build for it, invest in it, think about it frequently. More so than people think about the customization of the homes that they want in this world. Think about it frequently. And know that Allah subhanaw taala promises you a richness in the heart of paradise in the heart even if you don't have a mansion in this world. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells us Father Ogbu kumta Allah this is another
Hadith kotse found in a Baba Ronnie, even Adam or children of Adam to Fedorov, Leone burnetii M la funnelback. Linen were amla daycare is on Allah subhanaw taala says all children of Adam, free yourself meaning free your time for my worship I will fill your heart with richness and fill your hands with risk with provision. And then Allah Subhana Allah says in the Hadith Bootsy Abner Adam are Children of Adam letaba omniva Embla Aleta football on what data Sugarland do not distance yourself from me. Do not distance yourself from me or else I will fill your heart with poverty and fill your hands with worthless distractions shoulder meaning busy work worth nothing the dust at the
end of the road. You apart from it you go to the grave the billions of billions of dollars you've had that customized house that you have that caused you not to worship Allah, everything you had, that you were distracted by, that was cut off from Allah. It's nothing now. You enter the grave without it. You enter the grave with your currency of deeds. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and this is where a dove
is used this is a very beautiful Hadith by the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if Allah will play it on the Huracan do good deeds in the time that you have the hope here once again using the Hadith, and he said some Allahu alayhi wa salam. What Otterloo Lena for hottie Rahmatullah and take advantage of the moments of the gentle breeze from the Mercy of Allah. Allah has moments of gentle breeze from his mercy that He sends down upon whom every He wills amongst his servants. So ask Allah to cover your faults and to protect you from your anxieties was ALLAH and yesterday our article where a new am minerality come ask Allah to basically bless you and to cover you with regards to
your sins and to protect you from your fears and your anxieties. Time is up.
When your time is up, you must now face accountability. You have to be now responsible, accept what you've done. And if you're responsible now and you're accountable now, between you and Allah subhanaw taala you will find yourself less regretful when your time is up. If you hold yourself accountable now, you're less regretful when your time is up. If you hold yourself accountable as a lifestyle, you are less regretful when your time is up the conclusion from these ayat, use the limited time that Allah has given you in this world to worship him. And Allah promises you a life in Jannah with limitless time, use the limited time in this world to worship Allah subhana wa Tada and
Allah promises you are home in which there is no limit, a home in which you can have whatever you want. For the deen a fee mentioned throughout the Quran that the people agenda are there forever to remind you of the transaction. Every one of us right now we're about to engage in a business transaction, limited hours in a dunya your life limited hours in this world for the sake of Allah for an infinite reward. So foolish is the one who does not accept this business transaction. And wise and successful is the one who takes this are the f let me know the one who takes this and act upon the one who prays to Allah the one who fast the one who refrains from sins and all who repent
when they fall short. So what do we do brothers and sisters, we bid farewell. We bid farewell to the months that have passed by we bid farewell to the time of this world and we ask Allah to accept from us. We ask Allah to grant us more opportunities. We speak frequently about those who passed away before us, the US Ibrahim Adham Rahim Allah, He said to the people of Boston when they said we're making dua, and we don't feel like it's accepted, he said your hearts have died with respect to many things. And one of these things. He said, you've buried your dead when I'm talking to him, it will be him. You don't take lessons from them. You bury the dead and you don't take lessons. What are you
waiting for? When are you going to wake up? Jeff? Ramona Shetty. flockmen. Allah was with us last summer when we were talking about planning and to invite him for our 20 year anniversary for the Muslim Institute, over 200,000 students and 20 years and countless others impacted in many other ways. And so panel, it was time for him to return back to Allah subhanaw taala just as he was praying salatu notic How will we leave this world? When your time is up? What will you be thinking when I'm alone 360 comes about next year. Some of those who attended this year may not be with us. And it's very possible some of the instructors may not be here next year. It's possible I want to be
here next year. It's possible sister Hafsa will not be here next year. It's possible those who have been attending from the very beginning in 2020. Every Ramadan 360 session benefiting from this and benefiting from Chef Muhammad Rahim Allah, it's possible that our time will be up.
If you want to be successful and to celebrate, you want to be joyful, and you want to emphasize the things that Allah Subhana Allah has given you of signs and reminders, then use the time that you have now wisely cherish the time being grateful for the time, gratitude with time ends up leading to success, and a lack of gratitude with time ends up leading to regret May Allah subhanaw taala protect us we bid farewell to this month of Ramadan in these final moments and for some of you this final day and for some of you as passed by, we bid farewell to the time of this month. And we ask Allah for acceptance and forgiveness and for more opportunities. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to
make us amongst those who take the opportunities that currently exist and those who worship Allah subhanaw taala throughout the year, not just in the month of Ramadan for Allah Subhana Allah is the Lord of Ramadan and every month and the Lord of time itself, the Lord of the universe, the Lord of all worlds and will Allah mean so race and compete for an infinite limit LIST RETURN race and don't stop racing don't stop looking ahead don't stop progressing towards Allah subhanaw taala because eventually time is up and once once it is over the opportunities and and the accountability begins and inshallah Tada with that accountability. We want to be people who are bright in the in their
faces radiant with light will do yoga even now with our faces on that day it will be radiant and bright Isla Rob beha now we're not looking towards Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam gives us advice
If you feel like this time this Ramadan has passed by quickly and well law he has, if you feel like it passed by quickly a year man do that know that your life is also a year and Maddie that limited, counted days and the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam therefore gave us some good news and some advice on sama Ramadan. Whoever fasts the month of Ramadan, of course, if it was required for you from a Tibetan will sit them in sha one and then follow that with six fasts of Chawan six days of Chawan Kana kearsley yummy daddy, it's like you fasted under all of time, meaning it's like you fasted the entire year. And if you do this every day, it's like you fasted your entire life. The Prophet
sallallahu alayhi salam said shahada Sabri with Aletheia to a yam in militia in Psalm without using the word again, this is in an essay Prophet sallallahu sallam said the month of Saudi what's the month of southern patients it is the month of Ramadan, and three days of fasting from every month is like fasting for a lifetime. So let's take the good news that Prophet sallallahu wasallam has given us too fast for a lifetime to have the reward of fasting a lifetime and may Allah subhanaw taala accept from us this month of Ramadan May Allah keep us accountable and forgive us for shortcomings. May Allah put Baraka in our time, and may Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst those who use their
time wisely in this world and encourage others to use their time wisely filtering out all the distractions that they have, and surrounding themselves and their loved ones with as many beneficial things as possible. So we can celebrate inshallah to Allah tomorrow in a home that has no limits in time in a home that is eternal in a home that is blissful in a home in which you can have Lahoma share or interfere with the nemazee whatever your heart desires, and of course the meeting with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. We end here on this note of a dua as Ramadan is ending we want to make a very quick dua inshallah Tada I have about a really five minutes or so. So I will utilize that time

We ask you Allah to grant us consistency throughout the year, we ask you a lot to forgive us for all of our sins, the major and the minor, the past and the future, the sins that are public and the sins that are private.

Although we asked you to grant us all what is best for us and to make us content with the acceptance of dua in the form that you know is best for us. We asked you to Allah and bring

We asked you Allah to free our innocent prisoners and bring them back to their family safe and secure. We asked you not to grant Muslim students, the ability to Excel for your sake, in Dean and dunya, and to have high standards as Muslims and to be proud Muslims wherever they are. And we asked the Lord to protect them and protect us all from doubts and desires. We ask Allah to heal our sick from all illnesses, you alone are the one to cure. We asked you Allah for your protection for being tested yet Allah, we ask you to have mercy on us. And for everyone who requested our
prayers. We ask the Lord to correct all of their affairs. We ask you Allah, as you've allowed us to experience the month of Ramadan, allow us to be forgiven. Oh Allah allow us to be forgiven. Oh Allah forgive us. And don't punish us and be with us. There's nothing that gives us
is the ability to call upon you and ask you for forgiveness, knowing all of our sins and our guilt and our shame and our shortcomings and our faults except what you've told us and taught us of your forgiveness, when you said Latok not Lumina Rahmatullah in Allah Hillfield Denuvo Jamia, do not lose hope in the Mercy of Allah Allah forgives all since Allah we repent to you and ask you to keep us consistent after Ramadan.

We asked you a lot for many more Ramadan to come. And that if this is our last Ramadan, that it is our best Ramadan in our record of deeds, yeah Allah, we ask you to go in and bless our Islamic institutions and scholars and their staff and their volunteers and their students all around the world. We ask Allah
to guide them, to forgive them to keep them upright. We ask you a lot to make us a people who are receptive to advice wherever we are, and to be people who give advice sincerely and wisely in in a prophetic manner. We asked you Allah to guide us to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, in character and in worship, in character and in worship. We asked you a lot to protect us to protect our loved ones to protect our brothers and sisters in this life in the grave and on the Day of Judgment, Oh Allah, we ask you to make us people of the Quran, Ya Allah we've neglected the Quran in our lives, despite knowing that it is the source of healing the source of
guidance, the source of light, or Allah make us and our loved ones people of the Quran, who take it seriously, who will live upon it to internalize it, who study or to teach it to Allah make us the people who reference the Quran every day of our lives. All I'll make the Quran, the spring of our hearts and the light of our chest, the remover of our sadness and the repeller of our stress. Oh Allah, whatever we forgot of the Quran, we ask you to remind us and grant us consistency and strength in studying it.

Alright, let's begin even the late isla.
Salam Alaikum this villa hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah him or there'll be shortly so anyway suddenly Emily while all of that and Melissa Annie fo od Robina. Zina Edmonia Karim. So we are doing sort of Jessenia and Jeff Yeah, we're going to be doing verse number 24. But as their tradition we, we usually like to go when I have before or a couple of times before in Shabak. So let's begin let me share the screen here. So I'm gonna
All right. If you want to bring up
Some of the brothers or sisters, I want to come and recite. We'll start from here and Charlo Ismaila let's get
All right. Oh, I saw him. Sorry. You're welcome. Bismillah Bismillah All right, we're going to begin with
verse number 22
Verse number 22
Okay, can you can you hear me? Yes, I can. Zyro right. Syrah Zarya, it's actually sorry as mom, I'm using my daughter's account. Okay, sorry. Okay, so ohms All right, let's go. That's perfect. That's perfect.
I was gonna let him in a shape on your regime. We'll call Apple who's
the one being the Happy Valley to Kelowna B Mac answer, but one who's using them on
Zack live. So in these verses, the context over here is Allah subhanaw. taala, obviously, is trying to reset a paradigm, right? We all have paradigms in our lives, we all have paradigms that we operate upon, or we you know, sometimes we not necessarily, you know, like, back in our minds, every single one of us we're, we're working with a certain set of principles and values and stuff. And are those are the paradigms and when we operate on those paradigms.
If they're not, right, and if they're not in the right, like the value system is not correct, then those paradigms can lead us to the wrong things. So oftentimes, what Allah subhanaw taala does, and this is part of her reflection in the Quran, what Allah subhanaw taala does is, as those paradigms are being discussed, as we are discussing those things, Allah subhanaw taala is going to in inject in that paradigm, something that should inject in the story, or in the context or in the outcome or the legislation that Allah is presenting, he will interject in it, things that should allow us to reset ourselves so that we don't get lost in the life of dystonia.
So this is one of those examples over here that Allah subhanaw taala has done over here. So Allah subhanaw taala he says, wahala Allah who somehow let the world or the bill help Allah has created that the somewhat and the earth with justice. Okay.
Why mentioned justice and when Allah mentions right after that what etudes coluna FCMB Maka Sabbath and every soul is going to be rewarded with that which they earn cassava their hands earn wahome Law Utila Mona, there'll be no transgression. Why? Why why mentioned like this, I could have also been like this. Well, halacha Allah who somehow it well, well, he told us to Luna I've seen the America sir, but we're homeless youth alone. And I could have done that. Remove the word will help. Why mentioned the word will help. If you're still up or for anybody else that wants to come up and talk about this.
By mentioned, this will help. Or you can put it in the chat if you want.
Allah is already talking about accountability. It's I mean,
not really, in vain. We know Allah doesn't create things in vain for short.
But what's the significance of mentioning this? Not necessarily truth over here will help means with absolute justice and, and you know, Allah created all of these things with absolute justice.
A lot is fair, beautiful. How do you know Allah is fair?
That's the answer. Emphasis on the Justice How do we know Allah has has helped and justice? How do we know that?
Those are all some like semantics? Who can be more fair? Yeah, we all know that. How do you know in the context of this idea
that Allah is the justice
and he is absolute.
Right? If you go around in the world,
and focus on the ISO, all the answers are great, but focus on the ayah. Allah is saying halacha Allah who somehow arte De Waal, Earle da, Allah created the Earth or the heavens and the earth, Bill help. So Allah is asking you to go and check the balance that exists in the universe, the perfection that exists in the universe, the absolute colorations, the alternations everything is taking place with absolute balance with nothing that is going out, ever of of the balance that Allah has intended.
And we look around in this entire universe of hours. And you have examples that Allah has left for us that we are left puzzled, right, you have a fish that freezes to death.
And then comes back to life when the temperatures are warm, you have frogs that die completely die, they have no signs of life left in them until they touch a certain thing or certain warm temperature and they touch us, you know, a certain they hit a certain temperature and their heart just starts beating again. All of these things that Allah has created around us wahala of Allah who somewhat while it's not hibernation, it's actually beyond hibernation, right? These animals, they literally freeze to death, their heart stops, everything stops, and then they come back to life as soon as they're thaw.
So they freeze up, and when they're frozen, everything so all of these things Allah is saying, I have created this entire universe for you and me to go and see that if he Allah has not done any injustice in the creation of this heavens in the earth, is it even fathomable that he is going to have injustice for us on the Day of Judgment. And that's why right after he affirms his justice part and allows you to go in witness all of these then he says, what you need to do is call lunar sim Bhima cast, but so that every soul shall be repaid with that which you did.
And we cannot operate with with half there is going to be injustices that we are going to do and that's how we're going to be held accountable. Well hopefully, you'll learn more and they will not be wronged
the way Allah has not done anything of injustice to the creation of this earth likewise nothing
Sorry, brother give us an early sorry it's 554 is good I know. Mashallah, we have
interest so I did not expect the 554 as an but it's okay.
Um, the next person can come up and let's do the next verses together in Sharla. Already I saw Henry's email let's hear from you. It's Mala
As you can hear you
will be a che on your Raji Bismillah your Walkman you're walking as our a Dharma talk or the ALA
is there another word it's okay.
This one is definitely a
very well thought on some he worked on it he was there are there sorry, Missouri, Missouri, we share what we share with them farming to be by the
OSI that that
okay, so Allah subhanaw taala in this after he has described to us the entire creation of the heavens and the earth, and He is telling told us that there is going to be this absolute justice that he's going to establish. And on that day, your justice, Your Honor, Your hisab is all going to be predicated on help. And the things that you did you will be held accountable for then Allah is like, wakes us up over here, Allah is like, I felt like at Amanita ILAHA hoo, ha. This is very appropriate because right now we have spent this entire been training how to control our, how are our desires, right, we were all slave to our desires. We were all worshippers of our desires we had
all submitted, we had all become out of our desires. Because we had allowed our desires to take the position of ILA, the word ILA, I, the higher level, it comes, it can possibly come from two different words. It can come from a word of any higher level, which means that
something that amazes us and it grabs a person's attention. That's why Allah is the ultimate Allah. Because every creation of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala can create things where you look at them, and you are just amazed and left at this, like you're astonished that Allahu Akbar, how can this exist? You look at Niagara Falls, you look at all these other creations of Allah subhanaw taala that are there, and you look at that, and you're, you're left with nothing but amazement, and that's an ILA. And that amazement, leaves a person leads a person to an absolute submission to Allah.
Sometimes our desires also, they get replaced with Allah as being our ILA. And that's why we can have multiple ILAs. Right? Your heart can submit and get amazed by multiple things in life. And then sometimes some people they're ILA is the car like our neighbor across the street because Zillow has the car. Every day he gets out
up every day, like he comes back from work, he's sitting there he's like, shining his, his his rims to the level every single day.
He's just never gets stopped. He's so amazed by his car and literally the car controls him more than anything else.
So Allah is like, have you seen those people, we've all seen those individuals right where one thing or the other in the life completely controls and possesses them. And they can't think out of that box they're always stuck to that attack that physical object or particular view or whatever it is the hold on to now that becomes an arena, the second meaning of it higher level EDA, the second meaning of EDA
comes from from EDA, the one you call upon to okay and Allah is the One who ultimately irrespective of
agnostics, atheists, wherever you are in your religiosity, when a calamity falls onto us, you are left with no choice but to call on him.
And laissez faire does offer a term and he tell her that yah hoo ha Have you seen that person who has taken his, his, his his ILA his ultimate submission that he you know, something that he submits to his focus in life is focal point as become what howa who has desires duniya all the things that you can your desires can lead you to what Allah Allah will law who I didn't mean the problem with this individual was that Allah had given him knowledge.
But he chose not to submit to that knowledge and then Allah led him astray. Allah let him go straight while hola hola hola let him go straight. He started deviating hola as I go on, carry on going carry on going. I mean, the sad reality was he had knowledge of what was right and wrong.
How many times we know of individuals who knew what right and wrong was
and Allah subhanaw taala let them go astray will help them Allah summary he will be he although he had knowledge but he would listen to the Quran in the month of Ramadan he would listen to the lectures in the month of Ramadan and despite how many reminders he hears how many Quran how much Qurani hears you know, his heart is sealed the person's heart is sealed Allah doesn't allow a does not know nor Ellen penetrates that person's heart and Allah protect us from them. Well hot damn Allah, Allah sent me he won't but we'll be here that Allah sealed that person's hearing and his heart. Well Jah Allah, Allah was originally shower, and Allah has placed on that person's eyesight
as the shower avail. So he sees things but he doesn't see them with the reality
that will protect us.
What Allah sent me, I mean, these are individuals whom Allah, they hear the lectures, they hear everything. They benefit in Ramadan, they're there, they're at a different level. They're hearing everything, but it's not entering their hearts while they will be here and it's not and nothing is happening. Watch either Allah sorry, he has a shot when they see the signs of Allah, they see the Samoa 12 out, they see everything, all of that is in front of them. But they only see the physical they do not see Allah through those things. Allah and His existence and his, his his eight Allah's you know, Coldzera is veiled. So they see that and they just see an object, they don't see that it's
Allah behind that object. They don't see that it's Allah has put the right at play behind that object.
And then this is this is the scariest part of the IOER Allah says, familia de he did Allah who can bring such a person back other than Allah subhana wa Tada.
There's nobody that can bring that person back. He has all the reasons that he needs, he has everything that he wants, everything is there, he has knowledge, he was guided, Allah seal his heart. Allah is like amania de He who is going to bring this person back who will guide him back. him back the law other than Allah subhanaw taala I find out that karoun Do you not? Do we not as individuals, you know, take Do we not be mindful yet as a Quran fly to the Quran? Do we not think about this? Are you not being mindful about this analogy and don't we see this reflected in our hearts? And that's why it also the LA SallAllahu Sallam he used to say with a little close up it'll
be Isla de Nick. Oh Allah authority, depending on different different narrations? Yeah, and this Hadees to Yamaka labor
Recording was another one
then last panel data says what God whom he hire to honor don't need
the people who are lost in this oblivion and they don't see things and they they had knowledge and they had everything but they're lost in this dunya What do they say they argue with you they tell you man you gotta live with once man live your life You Only Live at once do what you want to do right? Let somebody else decide I forgot yet so if you can have been with man this the smaller

sorry this one. Well Carlos so the next I lost mantra says what I do and they say what do they say mahiya Allah Hi Atlanta to me man we just got to live once in this life man let's live it you know you're only gonna live once you got to live it up.
Now move to wanna hear wama you really gonna kill that? Oh My Allah home de Vatika mean Rama Allah home be Valley come in and in home ill dyeable known right so what's their their ultimate claim there's nothing beyond this worldly life we die and others are born like you know life it's just get ill I went and somebody else came in the world what's the big deal about that? And to be honest with you all we need to do is we need to we need to burn time. Okay, then I was like nothing destroys us but the passage of time like there's nothing else that can come and and take well my Yoo hoo, lacuna. Illa data. The only thing that takes away my life is time so time is not on your side. So
let's go and kill time because time is already killing us.
Well, mine at home be Valley come in. They don't have any knowledge about the statement that they're saying.
This claim is just a baseless claim in home Ildar you haven't known all they are saying and all these statements of theirs are just speculations just guesses blind guesses that they're doing that none of this is true. So I'll just meet up what you got to tell him this individual who has knowledge who had a real and Allah misguided him because he chose not to follow that and and Allah sealed that person's heart and blinded him from the realities of of health and justice. Well, you got to Talalay him to nine when the verses of Allah are recited on this person binding act in these verses are absolutely clear there's no doubt and ambiguity in them.
Makana Hoja to whom he learned ALU
all they have is their you know when they recite their only argument they have is what
you know bring our forefathers back right follow to follow to be I attina the other night and go to Saudi teen I mean like if you really think we can be resurrected in life like why don't you just bring our kids bring my father back? Bring my grandfather back. That's the only argument they have
nothing nothing else to hold on.
Then over here Allah is telling you the state like there and like so so notice notice the sequence here I want you guys to see this. So Allah first tells us about the state of these individuals and then Allah tells us wahama Allah summary him while up it will be so summary he will tell me the person's heart and his ears both are blocked and clogged. Why do I not allow buddy he shall
A lot of that person's eyesight, he's not able to see the true reality or liquidity of this world. Then look at the examples that Allah says somebody comes. And somebody has told them yeah, if you were gonna die or lose, somebody said something to them. They heard something. That message did not penetrate the heart. But now their response is only using their apple and intellectual response. They say Paloma here ILAHA tuna dunya. They're just giving an intellectual response to that, then well either to Talalay him to another unit and somebody else comes and says let's recite some verses to them, forget giving them Dawa of like my my explanation of what I believe Islam has, let's recite
some verses to them. Macondo. Giotto even though the Verses are recited, things are entering their heart, their ears, and nothing is entering their heart, this is not working the ears and heart and are these all are examples of what happens to a person when your ears and hearts do not connect? Well, you'd have to touch it him to know but you're not in Wakanda, to whom in call to go and bring our forefathers in quantum sadiya teen.
Now Allah subhanaw taala does not want you to despair at the end of this month.
And in this ayah to
Allah says, holy law who you're here from, Allah says say oh prophet of Allah tell them, Allah who you are, he can. Allah is the One who is going to give you life. So my you need to come and he can cause you to die.
So there are two meanings over here. So my edge Malcolm and then Allah is going to, to, to to gather you all again. So Allah is like Allah is the One who gave you life in the first place.
Allah is the One who gave you life in the first place. Allah is the One who will give you death. And Allah is capable of gathering you again, once again, it's not difficult, he's already done two of the three things. The third should not be very difficult. But the analogy that Allah is trying to also remind us over here is for an individual whose heart is, is is is is dead, and they don't feel anything, that Allah is the one he can resurrect your hearts. Notice after every time Allah is going to talk about something to do with the heart, there's always about Allah is going to resurrect this earth. Don't you see the Earth coming back to life? Don't you see this Allah, Allah is the one he
can bring you back to life. It's always something to do with Allah has the ability to bring you back to life and it's always related to Allah also bringing your heart back to life in this dunya so it doesn't matter if you were disconnected Allah can always bring that heart back to life in this dunya loughrea Buffy ha in a gauge metal Camila, Yeoman piano Allah is going to resurrect you on the Day of Judgment. Lara UEFI ha rockin axon CLI Allah. Because Allah says there's no doubt in the multi AMA, but most of the people they are sadly in doubt, they're in a state and they're not in a state of knowledge about this particular information. And then Allah ends this off, while Illa human
because somehow it will out if you're still doubtful that the piano is going to take place. You don't belong. The trees don't belong to you. They don't they don't come out of the earth on your command. There are so many things around you your internal body, your your own body itself. 80 to 90% of is out of your control that is running on autopilot. While Illa he Maluku somehow it what are the are our own body is a testament that it belongs to somebody else because someone else is controlling it, not you and when you even try to control it there's only limited control that you have over this.
Likewise Allah is the Allah has the dominion of all that which is in the heavens and the earth. Well Yo my Tacomas saya and on the day when Allah is going to establish the our yo mama even on that day, yes settle on that day. I'll mobile data on yes several mobile loan, that the ones who were falsified as we used to make total claims we used to make this this falsehood claims Mobilty loan I either their judgment, their statements are all bought in there's nothing to stand on. It's in vain arguments, they will be the true losers on that day. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us from any type of loss in this dunya as well as any type of
any type of loss in Ophira as well as the Studium your loss finally Tyler enter in Jana tude for those in paradise without any hisab

I know it's good I think it's gonna be hard for people to think of questions I think we're all kind of on a on a bit of high and it's I know it's bittersweet to be ending the month that we spend so on a daily together making the eyes connecting with her and reflecting on the verses you know learning and and benefiting and connecting with our shoe, getting emotional connecting with each other sharing our own experiences our own stories. They'll make it heavy on everyone skilled deeds, everyone who's present everyone was behind the scenes who allow this to

I mean, just like compared to everyone who's been living such beautiful the eyes and messages in the chat again, I'm trying not to I've got a couple of them I try not to go through all of them but yes, we are closing off Ramadan 360 It's not the end of anything and hamdulillah the experience continues that manga community is huge. I said this the beginning this is just a taste. This is just the beginning. If you're a student who comes back year after year for Ramadan 360 I encourage you guys to check out some of the experiences
that we have with a mug to benefit from the classes the content that our she would like she had put out on their social media fill your feed with all the
For the baraka that you've been enjoying this month make sure that you're following all these instructors so that that can continue after Ramadan inshallah as well and that your feed continues to be blessed in sha Allah chef any final reminders anything that you can leave us with as I know there's been some some people who message me with the DUA I'll actually send that. Let me see if I can send it over here.
I was looking
I think I have it in my notes here somewhere. I know there's some people who are asking some questions any keep keep an eye out for your ask if they have any questions. Let me just copy and paste this guy and I'll send this over just opening my file. And the questions that I see are mostly logistical in terms of which classes are upcoming what things are happening next in sha Allah. So there's it's gonna be very busy post Ramadan in sha Allah keep an eye out for sure. I will copy this die in sha Allah on telegram as well so that we have that physical affair keep an eye out for sure. So what does that mean? Well, you know, what, are you trying to tell us? Don't spill anything else?
No spill. We don't do any spills. Cleanup afterwards. We're Muslims. We don't spill any beans.
Anyhow, yeah, Alhamdulillah I will be doing a lot of
so I do have a goal Inshallah, that I want to, you know, in the masjid that I'm in. I want this semester to be the first semester to complete the entire cover to cover explanation of the Quran recorded on high quality on YouTube and being available for everybody online inshallah. So that's the vision that we have for the next five years, may Allah give us the trophy, if to complete it. That would limit a lot of what I can do in terms of travels and stuff, because that is going to be the goal, but I think that would be a massive asset. If Allah allows me as for the OMA so that we're able to inshallah benefit, it's going to begin two weeks right after I will share the you guys know
that YouTube channel anyways, but again, if you want, it will be going on my YouTube channel, inshallah. So we'll be posting that on our YouTube channel. And then the idea would be, as I was telling Chef 100, yesterday, that we will index every single item in there, so that so that somebody picks up and they say, oh, I want to listen to just the Tafseer of iron number five in the Surah, they can go to that Surah, go to the section between like 10 to 12, or, you know, 12 to 45, and then go to that halacha. And then in the chapters, click on the ayah that they want, and they should be able to do that. So it'll be a very big project, if anybody wants to partake in this project,
because this will allow you guys to actually listen to those steps, seniors before they go out in public, there'll be in private and then you can listen to them and you know, do time stamping and stuff like that. There'll be a lot of pleasure for you guys. It's visa vie de la there's nobody being paid in this other than Allah subhanaw taala paying you for this immense reward. So that's one big thing that inshallah we'll be doing, plus some other things that are coming that we have to keep on the download
