O Allah Rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ABI shortly suddenly you are suddenly Emory law but that's me Listen you have a holy so the Chanukah la Mulana Illa ma lantana in Naka Antara Hakeem my brothers and sisters in Islam Welcome to this new series about better me my latest book 365 ways to transform your everyday life as of this moment we are recording this these episodes prior to Ramadan about one month before the month of Ramadan.

00:00:52--> 00:01:36

in Ramadan then congratulations and May Allah subhanaw taala accept from all of us. I mean our blood I mean my brothers and sisters in Islam this year, we thought to come up with a new idea and that is discussing few coats 30 coats in sha Allah tala one coat at a time, one code every day during the month of Ramadan in sha Allah, there are 365 quotes here, we will just select 13 shout aloud to Allah and relate to them in our everyday life in sha Allah. As you know, there are a lot of series going on during Ramadan beautiful reminders from various missionaries and speakers around the world. So I intend in sha Allah to make my series very brief and to the point so shall we dig into the

00:01:36--> 00:02:23

first coat in sha Allah, the first coat in our episode today inshallah, that aspect is titled feeding people. The cold states, one of the noblest acts ever is to distribute food among the needy and hungry on the top of that, you can also feed them with knowledge, encouragement, validation, and love. Now, there are a couple of reasons that why I have actually selected this quote for the first episode of our series in Ramadan. Now one of them is that it's very relevant to Ramadan. I mean, people be fasting hungry and you want it to eat, so it's the best opportunity for you to feed them on the top of that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam informed have informed us of the great reward of

00:02:23--> 00:03:11

feeding the needy, the hungry and the fasting people in the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said that if you provided food to a fasting person, whether during Ramadan or outside the Ramadan, you will get the reward of that particular fasting person without diminishing anything from his reward. So it's an opportunity to multiply double or multi multiply your own reward. So it's a great great act of goodness. In fact, the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam when he migrated from Mecca to Medina, his first speech was a yohannes or people actual Salaam, spread peace, what our time with Tom and feed people's panel of the second item on the list in this beautiful speech was to feed the people

00:03:11--> 00:03:56

so it's, it's a great virtue and by the way, the prophet SAW Selim in this narration, he did not say feed the hungry, he said just feed with food, provide people with food, any people, poor or rich. Of course, the less fortunate people among the Muslims and even non Muslims, more deserving of food and shelters and other necessity. However, this is not just the command that the professor Sam give is not just limited to those who are poor and hungry. So invite each other in Ramadan with that particular intention. And don't think that because you perhaps don't have the means to invite people for big fancy meal outside or at home. Remember that a companion came to the prophet SAW Selim or

00:03:56--> 00:04:36

certain group of companions and they told the process that we don't have the means to provide food and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told them perhaps you can give them some dates and they said even dates we don't have the process I'm said even a cup of water, even a cup of water to to break the fast have a person during the month of Ramadan with grant to the same reward. So what are you waiting for now? This is the first month of Ramadan I want you to plan in sha Allah to Allah ahead of time. How many people are you going to feed during the month of Ramadan so that you can you can gain this beautiful reward charlo Tyler. Tomorrow we're going to give you another tip on how to

00:04:36--> 00:04:40

transform your life during the month of Ramadan for the better. Salaam Alaikum
