daru

00:00:26--> 00:00:30

Sharif, in English in English in English

00:00:37--> 00:00:41

hamdulillah the first two things that the shade mentioned.

00:00:42--> 00:00:47

And the main objective of fasting as the Shaykh mentioned number one is to obtain template

00:00:48--> 00:01:04

number two, the shape mentioned that it is a means for one to refine his character. And so then the day that a person fast is not like the day that he doesn't fast. And if a person continues to find that throughout Ramadan, watching what he says,

00:01:06--> 00:01:14

making his eyes fast his ears fast his limbs fast that Ramadan will not leave except that he is a different person is different than he was he is better.

00:01:15--> 00:01:29

He has improved, his character has improved throughout the course of Ramadan. The third point that the Shaykh mentions here is that it is a means for

00:01:30--> 00:01:50

one to have, in general, you have the ability to eat three meals a day whenever you like. It is a means for these people to remember they're less fortunate brothers. And this creates generosity. And this is one of the themes of Ramadan

00:01:52--> 00:02:00

is that you become a more generous person, both with your wealth and with your time with your status with everything

00:02:02--> 00:02:07

that you become more generous you become a person who was known for lending a helping hand for example,

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

because the profit is selected

00:02:12--> 00:02:22

as even as best said, kana edge what is the profit is salatu salam was the most generous of the people

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

what can I just get them a Hulu film Yvonne?

00:02:28--> 00:02:32

He nailed kaaboo jabril for you That is so cool.

00:02:33--> 00:02:43

And he was the most generous that he would ever be in the month of Ramadan when he would meet with gibreel and read him the Quran.

00:02:46--> 00:02:54

And as the scholars have mentioned, there's a lot there are a lot of benefits from this hadith in and of itself one of them. And this is important for us as we look at

00:02:55--> 00:02:58

our approach to the Quran and Ramadan.

00:02:59--> 00:03:01

The Prophet alayhi salatu salam

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

Canada you daddies who are as if he was studying the Quran, with gibreel.

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

And the scholars take from this

00:03:12--> 00:03:17

that it is better for a person actually to read the Quran to someone else.

00:03:18--> 00:03:20

And especially in Ramadan.

00:03:21--> 00:03:27

And a lot of times what happens is, we forget this point, so we read the Quran by ourselves.

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

And then without that extra push,

00:03:33--> 00:03:43

sometimes we get negligent or lacks. But the reality is, is that if you have someone who's you're going to meet every day and you're going to read a juicer or I know to juice with them

00:03:44--> 00:03:50

and you stop at certain if and ponder over the meanings. And perhaps go back to some tough,

00:03:51--> 00:03:56

tough series of the grind that this is more likely that you will continue

00:03:57--> 00:04:05

along the path because you have someone else pushing this is why the prophet SAW the light it was on him encouraged us to have good friends to be in good company

00:04:06--> 00:04:21

and explained that the difference between good company and bad company is like hemming and misc whenever you look here. It's like the difference between a seller of musk and a the blacksmith.

00:04:23--> 00:04:42

So the one who sells musk he's either going to sell you some so you smell good. Or he's gonna give you some you smell good. Or at least you get a pleasant smell from him. The point is then look for good company and Ramadan. Look for somebody that you can read the Quran with here.

00:04:45--> 00:04:57

Even I bet says that the prophet SAW Selim would be the most generous and Ramadan. And the scholars say that is because of the attachment that he had to the speech of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:04:59--> 00:04:59

And the fact that when

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

One reads the Quran.

00:05:03--> 00:05:06

They become more in tune

00:05:08--> 00:05:18

to their ultimate reality, the inevitable pollun of sin. The eclipse will note, every soul shall taste death.

00:05:21--> 00:05:25

As a person reads the Koran and they read about gentlemen, and they read about now

00:05:27--> 00:05:28

they read about

00:05:29--> 00:05:33

Allah Subhana Allah data, his names and his attributes.

00:05:34--> 00:05:46

They read about the stories of the NBN, the prophets and the messengers of the past, they become more attached to where they're going, and less attached to where they are.

00:05:47--> 00:05:49

Because it's the inevitable journey.

00:05:52--> 00:05:59

And they recognize that this is the path of the solid hain and the righteous and this is the path of the corrupt.

00:06:01--> 00:06:07

And so once you realize that this is what in the doubt, I'll ask your telehealth haiwan

00:06:09--> 00:06:13

that the Hereafter is the real life.

00:06:14--> 00:06:32

When a person reads the Quran more often than this becomes a reality to him. It's not just lip service. And it's not just something that's on the back of his mind. But now it becomes part of his thought process. And so he thinks about the hereafter. If a person is thinking about the Hereafter,

00:06:34--> 00:06:38

that $5 he has that $20 20 100

00:06:39--> 00:06:44

and he recognizes that it is going to be rewarded 700 times over.

00:06:47--> 00:06:52

And he recognizes that I don't need this. In reality, this is extra.

00:06:53--> 00:07:03

If I don't have it, my family is not going to start well hombre de la Houma, la ciudad has put me in charge of it, there's no doubt that the best sadaqa that you can spend this on your family.

00:07:04--> 00:07:08

Don't go giving to other people and leave your family in need.

00:07:10--> 00:07:13

Give them but give them with the intention that it is for loss of habitat

00:07:14--> 00:07:25

that you are fulfilling a whadjuk a responsibility and know that the most beloved, of these soulless habitats are those that he made obligatory upon us and every man has to take care of his family.

00:07:26--> 00:07:30

So spend on your families be generous with your families in the month of Ramadan.

00:07:31--> 00:07:55

But also, if you have extra you have surplus, and you find that there are people in need. There are messages that need their institutes and need Islamic schools in need. Then give and give generously. Give like a person who doesn't fear poverty. This is why the scholars say that there is no way that a person a person can be both generous and a coward

00:07:57--> 00:08:00

because the only way you're going to be generous is when you don't fear poverty.

00:08:02--> 00:08:06

And poverty. Most people fear poverty more than they do an enemy with a weapon.

00:08:07--> 00:08:11

And because they fear poverty, they become the slave to money.

00:08:13--> 00:08:18

They enslaved themselves to money to ward off the opposite of wealth, which is

00:08:20--> 00:08:29

not that they fear their enemy. So if a person is generous, they'll be in the land and he will also be a courageous person.

00:08:31--> 00:08:40

And these are from the attributes of the real believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala was shot hold on hold on and let it
