NAT hamdulillah Anna Maria who want to stay in who want to study who want to start? When I was a belimbing shadow the unforeseen ailments a yachtie I'm Melina Maria de la who Philomel de la who were my googling for la ha de la. Wa shadow Allah Ilaha illa Allah who the hola Shani Keller who I shadow under Mohammed Abdullah rasuluh Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Nabina Muhammad. While early he was talking to he was Salim Allah whom metta Sleeman, Kathira and my bad, all praise due to Allah and His praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Ali who are early he was salam sallam, my dear brothers and sisters, as we all are preparing ourselves and

00:03:43--> 00:04:32

looking forward for next week, where we will start the month of Ramadan in sha Allah to add a month that we are waiting for every year and looking forward for it and every year that it comes and it comes with a special flavor and Subhanallah no matter how many Ramadan you have witness you have fasted you have practice during that month. It's still every year it has its own excitement. It's that month, where Allah subhanho wa Taala have prescribed upon us one of the greatest acts of worship which is a cm Yeah, you have Ludhiana M and o katiba, eco Mercia, mukana katiba, Allah, Allah D and M and publikum La La Contacta Poon, or who you believe fasting was prescribed upon you,

00:04:32--> 00:05:00

as it was prescribed upon those who are before you. So you may attain Taqwa. So, ALLAH SubhanA data says, well until sumo higher Allah come. If you fast, it is better for you. It is good for you. And a tequila that's all we trying to attain during the fasting. What's a topo means? A tequila. It's a word that has three layers.

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

have all three meanings.

00:05:02--> 00:05:12

The first meaning is the basics. What do you fulfill the basics of Islam? You worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, and you submit yourself to Him.

00:05:14--> 00:05:19

And in Ramadan, it's so clear that you fulfill that concept

00:05:20--> 00:05:25

it makes logically makes no sense. Yeah, and what's the difference between

00:05:27--> 00:05:29

630 and 640?

00:05:31--> 00:05:38

The difference is this CRM is valid because it's on time and this 10 minutes later after the time it's invalid.

00:05:40--> 00:05:53

But that's a submission. It's teach you to stand where Allah subhanaw taala told me instead stop words you so you're supposed to stop the three minutes only before then I will break my fast No, you're not Allah.

00:05:55--> 00:05:59

You know, why would I stop drinking water? Okay, I'm gonna stop eating.

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

It's not up to you to decide that when either on logic, it's a full submission to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:06:07--> 00:06:17

So that's basically something that didn't, so young teach you to attain that first level of Taqwa. Which is that complete submission to Allah.

00:06:19--> 00:06:31

And you worship Him alone. subhanho wa taala? Yes, sometimes he tells us what there is everything he ordained everything he prescribed. There is a wisdom behind it. Sometimes you know what, sometimes you don't know.

00:06:34--> 00:06:45

And that's where the belief comes. Where the trust comes, because they know how knowledgeable he is how wise he is. And that's why I submit to him. subhanho wa taala.

00:06:46--> 00:06:52

And the second level of a Taqwa is to fulfill the obligations and to abstain from the haram.

00:06:53--> 00:07:24

And fasting is about that. A cm it is an obligation. Fasting teach you to fulfill the obligation to abstain from the haram. That's why the prophets of salaam said if someone fast and will not stop saying what is false, and stop saying what is bad using the all these false language and full languages and bad languages and do the wrong things. The process of them said that there is no point from leaving food and drinks.

00:07:26--> 00:07:31

So it teaches you to stop to change to stop saying and doing what is haram?

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

What's the what's fasting without praying.

00:07:36--> 00:07:42

That's why you see the Muslim care to pray all the time and the Ramadan. They teach them to fulfill the obligations.

00:07:43--> 00:08:24

A tip also has a higher level, a third level, which is when you do the recommended Act and the volunteer act. Look how Muslim cares for tarawih tarawih is not an obligation. It's a recommended act. It's a highly recommended thing to do. And you will see all the Muslim care for it. You will see Muslim care to feed the hunger and you look Muslim looking to rush and hasty the Iftar which is a sunnah and to delay the Sahara which is a sunnah reading Quran which is the Sunnah. So Subhanallah it's very interesting how Ramadan teach you all these three levels of Taqwa.

00:08:26--> 00:08:41

But that's just a push. So for you to pick up, and that's also teach you that the religion there is theoretically we say, the religion divided into principles and, you know,

00:08:42--> 00:08:59

pillars than obligations, then after that recommendation, theoretically, yes, that's correct. But practically, when you practice that religion, all of them comes together. It's not like okay, I'm going to fulfill all the obligation, then when I finish the obligations, I go to the recommendation, it doesn't work this way.

00:09:00--> 00:09:08

That's the theoretical classifica but the reality is when you start practicing religion, you're all this mixed together. It's called Better religion, the dean

00:09:09--> 00:09:10

for this now,

00:09:11--> 00:09:34

my brother and sisters, some elements of the taqwa it is unhealth mineral Jaleel. To have that respect, to have that respect mixed with fear from the Almighty Allah will MLB Tenzin that you practice what has been revealed to you Well, can I to believe that you satisfied with whatever you receive, even if it's little

00:09:36--> 00:09:37

you're happy with it.

00:09:39--> 00:10:00

And always I say when the * when Islam said you happy with whatever little you earn or you got it doesn't mean that you don't look for more. You're allowed to look for more. But you have to first to be happy with what you have before you start looking for more. That's what the what the state

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

statements means and to prepare yourself for the day will you will live.

00:10:06--> 00:10:08

And this is something Ramadan should remind you of

00:10:09--> 00:10:24

Ramadan goes on very fast. And that's how your life is. I just can't think every year I say that, but it's still I am in shock God, we fast they're gonna move on next week. And I'm not even over the last three millennia.

00:10:25--> 00:10:27

And you're going to fast next week.

00:10:28--> 00:10:38

It just so fast. That's why last month I said a year Matt do that. These are very few days. And I will remind you by the end of Ramadan, that it will go like this.

00:10:40--> 00:10:56

So make sure that you prepare yourself. I know some of you are young, healthy. But I tell you death does not discriminate between healthy and young and old and sick. when your time comes, your time comes.

00:10:57--> 00:11:11

But the point is, will you you know your time comes when you're doing something right or wrong. While you're ready for it or not. And that something is not in your hand, you're gonna die you like it or not one day.

00:11:12--> 00:11:25

Today tomorrow Musa alayhis salam Prophet Musa when the angel of death told him that this is a time for your death and he was panicking, he said can I delay that? That Allah subhanaw taala said how long you want to delay

00:11:27--> 00:11:42

he said make your hand wet and stick it on the back of like a ball or a cow and whatever how many head a lot stick your hand you can add this years to your life. Then Musa said then what is it you're gonna die? He said there's no difference

00:11:45--> 00:11:46

I'm ready.

00:11:47--> 00:11:52

So that's that's a reality that especially young people need to understand

00:11:53--> 00:11:58

and olders so you don't be so tempted and consumed by this life.

00:12:00--> 00:12:31

So important for us to prepare ourselves for Ramadan. Another thing that I will tell you that you should start from now is to have the good intention to do a lot of good deeds that Ramadan. Make sure that you have the intention from now why? Because Allah forbid anything happened to you distracted sickness, traveling whatever it can happen to you. Okay? It basically it is something that you can quickly read if you cannot do what you plan to do Allah reward you for it anyway.

00:12:33--> 00:12:43

So let's say you're planning to pray every day on time. That's my intention and I'm serious about one day or two days you get distracted you still get the edge or have

00:12:44--> 00:12:52

your near is to read the Quran and you did not Allah reward you for it. So make sure that you have the intention. And by the way,

00:12:53--> 00:13:09

you're not playing games or the Las Padala Acacia holiday with the intention to read the Quran 100 times. Sure. You know you said no, you had your own hola hola haha me playing game was Allah Allah knows what you're capable of.

00:13:11--> 00:13:13

Allah knows that you just making this up

00:13:15--> 00:13:22

that you can't do that. But something that I can do, it's in my ability and I have the intention to do it.

00:13:23--> 00:13:35

And make sure that you aim high with your intention sometimes to push yourself a little bit more. You know what last year I donated $5,000 This year I will push myself to make it seven.

00:13:37--> 00:13:41

Last year I made one cut no Quran this year I'm going to push myself to make 200 mil Quran

00:13:44--> 00:13:46

just an average recital of the Quran.

00:13:47--> 00:13:51

Like an average the center of the Quran who read slowly but smooth.

00:13:52--> 00:13:57

If you read every day one hour he makes up no Quran every three days.

00:13:59--> 00:14:10

For one hour, straight 60 minutes you read but your reading is smooth and you don't stop even if it's slow you will make Quran on every three days

00:14:12--> 00:14:13

it's not that hard by the way.

00:14:17--> 00:14:18


00:14:19--> 00:14:26

we know if you're quite faster but let's say an every 10 days yeah. You read

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

every 10 days you read the Quran, you may call it can but you have to dedicate a time anyway. So have the intention to do a lot of good deeds why intention is so good because you get reward if you fail to do it. Also, the second thing is that Allah subhanaw taala when he see that your intention is good, and you are psychologically because intention has to do with your and enter enters enter salt. So from inside you are determined you have the will Allah subhanaw taala when he sees that from you

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

He makes it easy for you to accomplish what you want.

00:15:05--> 00:15:42

Yeah, LM Illa who fear Kulu become Hira. You come higher in hola hola. angolo Isla saw they come were absurd they come when I can younger Illa Kuru become Allah doesn't look at your body as much as he look at your or he looks he looks at your heart what's in your heart. If Allah Subhana Allah find goodness in your heart, in the Quran, he will give you goodness let us find out to find goodness in your heart today this week before Ramadan start that have the intention to do so many good and I'm serious I'm determined about I'm sincere about it.

00:15:44--> 00:16:02

So Allah subhanaw taala will make it easy for you to happen. It's not easy to wake up from a bar it's not easy to stay the whole tartar away even though hamdulillah in our message is easy to pray the whole time. Because Because so many reasons. Hunger Allah, the best one of it is this beautiful community.

00:16:04--> 00:16:14

And also Hamdulillah we have always good citations good reciters the Salah is not that long is not that short, very suitable for people. So it is possible.

00:16:15--> 00:16:19

Allah subhanaw taala if he sees that you He will make it easy for you.

00:16:21--> 00:16:32

My brothers and sisters another benefit of this good intention to have from now and then insan the candidate luckily your Saudi ha yep that you have some left sided toxic

00:16:33--> 00:16:42

when you have a good intention, intention to do 123 And Ramadan start and you're not fulfilling what you intend to do you still hold yourself accountable.

00:16:43--> 00:17:05

You promise Allah subhanaw taala before Ramadan that you will do that, hey, you stay stay. Basically keep up with what you intend to do. So you hold yourself accountable for your actions

00:19:11--> 00:19:14

Somebody wants Tony Hsieh he did something he did back to me. I said, Yeah, forgive him. But he wronged me. I said, I know. What do you think forgiveness is for for those who have done good to you. Forgiveness is about to forgive those who have done wrong to you. That's the whole point. have the intention to be connected with your family members. have the intention to spend more time with your parents. Young people listen to me.

Nia to movement ablum in amellia political dilemma

00:20:22--> 00:20:59

I can't emphasize enough on the importance of this issue. The issue of having the insincerity and the intention good before you start from avant because Allah Subhana Allah says, Yo man, I am Pharaoh man whom I love and learn at a law have you been sadly when there is no wealth or children will benefit you? Except those who will comes to Allah subhanaw taala with a sound heart may Allah make us among them would almost similar to my story for Allah He would have come to study

00:21:02--> 00:21:13

hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Maria God who have asked my brothers and sisters one of the things that is so important for now to think about how I am going to excute my plans my intentions.

00:21:14--> 00:21:24

You have to think about it. Oh, I want to read Quran but okay, so what time you're going to read every day, I'm going to prepare I'm going to put this time for me to follow the Quran.

00:21:25--> 00:21:31

You know what I want to do get to Kapha understand the mustard. Okay, from now apply for a day is off. To stay in the must.

00:21:32--> 00:21:39

You have to make the plan hey, I need somebody to help me, which is a very good idea. Also tough some kind of buddy from a bomb buddy.

00:21:41--> 00:21:45

You know, if it's a family member, it's of his friends. You know what, let's work on this together.

00:21:47--> 00:22:16

So make sure that you do that. And you plan for it. And you have a clear plan of what you will be able to do according to your abilities, and being reasonable. Because I'll tell you, you might you may delay but time will not. Time will not. And Ramadan will go like this. Remember, it's not how many Ramadan's you have under your belt. Oh, I fasted 20 Ramadan. 30 Ramadan. It's not the numbers are from a bond in your life that count.

00:22:17--> 00:22:53

It's the deeds in Ramadan. That's what counts what you do during Ramadan. That's what really what does count what counts. My brothers and sisters, make sure that you free your heart from all illness, free yourself from sins, repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala and I will end my hotbar today with this example. And pay attention to this example because it was repeated several times and many references in the Quran and Sunnah. Your soul and heart is like a container.

00:22:55--> 00:23:05

It's like a container. When you're Sault and when that container is filled with something, there is no space left for other things to come in.

00:23:07--> 00:23:18

If I fill the cup of a cup with sand, that is no place to put rubies or gold or diamonds or rocks, whatever you can it's hollow, it's filled.

00:23:20--> 00:23:28

That's who you are. If you're so consumed by the Haram there is no space for the good deeds to come in.

00:23:30--> 00:23:31

You have to start cleansing.

00:23:32--> 00:23:33


00:23:34--> 00:23:47

and guess what how you fill your heart and your soul with this eyes, ear tongue, thoughts actions that would fill that

00:23:49--> 00:23:59

so if your whole entire soul and heart filled with let's say with the lowest with haram things you're listening to the Haram day and nights

00:24:01--> 00:24:03

you're watching haram their nights

00:24:04--> 00:24:10

and Haram is not defined divide or defined by me and you define but what Allah says haram

00:24:11--> 00:24:13

and what messengers are Samson It's haram.

00:24:17--> 00:24:25

And if your hearts and souls, that's one level, another level, which is all about it's not haram, but it's all things among the worldly matter.

00:24:28--> 00:24:54

Don't underestimate the dunya when it comes to the heart, if all what you come through your eyes, through your ear through your tongue, your act is all about this worldly matter. It's all about your body is all about your clothes is all about your luxury things. It's all about sports. It's all about you know all these things regardless of how good about it, but that's all what your body on your heart is filled with word Vila. There's no space for God.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

Don't think either magically you're going to have a space for it.

00:25:02--> 00:25:06

until you start cleansing and removing

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

and replacing that

00:25:11--> 00:25:16

don't underestimate what you've been doing to your hearts although you're long.

00:25:17--> 00:25:30

But hamdulillah the beautiful things about this little legend is it Toba is a dog which is open, which is that cleansing and is still hot, you always have the opportunity to switch and to reverse.

00:25:31--> 00:26:13

May Allah subhanaw taala open our hearts to accept the truth, and to be among those who worship Him in a way that it will pleases Him. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive all our shortcomings. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us enjoy the month of Ramadan, and to enjoy the bad during the month of Ramadan. And ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive those who are passed away, and to heal those who are sick and to guide those who are misguided. And we ask ALLAH SubhanA data by His names and attributes to bring peace to the world, and to end all the war, the words and the injustice that we see in the world. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us safe and our town our home and all our
