hamdulillah Muslim aid has facilitated and sponsored this event for our message, our center Edmonton Alhamdulillah.
It's from the virtue and most of our lots of panels out at that time after time that were honored with our machines. So the idea Mashallah is come all the way from Canada
to benefit us and many of us were here the whole bunch of day. And we can really see the concern and the power and the reminder from our chef mela preserving and longest life and his family and take care of them. It's a very short announcement from the brothers from Muslim aid. It don't work for them. I can rely on one of your own here and one of the brothers from the community
Mashallah brothers were not able to make it. So we took it upon ourselves to raise some funds for our brothers and sisters across the globe is one project that they'll be working on today, which is feeding the family in the month of Ramadan for 60 pounds. We have some pockets and some phones at the back in front of us want to partake in this beautiful act. And remember the month of shark van is a training for us. So perhaps we can start from today.

software testing and kathira Allahumma salli wa sallam was able to kind of see you know, Mohammed infidelity also you were sending more than Mohammed infidel 15 a lot more than you were sending was able to kind of see you know Mohammed Informatica data of tomorrow. I mean, we always begin with the praise of Allah we send our prayers of peace upon that whenever you get 100 sold a lot, a lot A lot earlier, he was talking to you what's happening. It's always a pleasure to gather together in the house of Allah zildjian massages that he's done.
And the abode of mercy that we seek with a loss of power
in the house of worship, that we're gathered in today is a special aim that a believer always has that we always seek to improve our relationship with Allah subhana wa tada that we come back to a path that is pleasing to Allah, and enriching to our existence. And today you're having to be loud for the next 3040 minutes because we lack the data. I wish to speak about preparing ourselves for the month of Ramadan using the month of Ramadan as a stepping stone to greatness to changes in our life that we know we need to make. And I pray that Allah subhanaw taala allows us to facilitate that have that Kalani accordant just so that our discussion is built on a methodology I wish birth to
speak about who you are and what you need.
And knowing who you are, allows you to know what you need and we need to speak a little bit about the Islamic philosophical perspective of what you are as an insane as a human being. Right, who are you? And why has a loss of Hannah Montana written upon you a cm Can I put the violin Nadine, I'm in public and as it was always written upon the nations who came before us therefore there is a special purpose for accidents for holding back from things that are permissible
this bottle of water there's no harm in it. And yet Allah subhana wa tada for many of you just like my my family in the month of Ramadan here it's not like back home I live in Australia at the moment Mashallah I'm scared to tell you my do a little bit of hazard on us. We break our fast at 515 in the afternoon, Mashallah. I call it afternoon for you people, right? You keep going until nine 930. So karma will be added.
No harm comes from this water. And yet, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells you leave it.
Don't partake in food that is halon that you've earned from Helen that you purchased with Helen that you prepared in a halal way, don't touch it. Whether people see you or not makes no difference. And therefore there has to be higher aims. So who are we? And why is fasting something written upon us as it was written upon those who came before us? Let's answer that first question in Sha men and what are you?
There are two words that Allah uses in the hole and to describe the human body first,
meaning hairless animal to Panama. It's a very important statement from a scientific perspective. I know there's I'm sure students of science here, those who have studied things like evolution and biology, all of a sudden the loss of Hannah Montana coals you and I this species of Benny Adam, the hairless one, that's your name, Russia, you have a bachelor
that there were other creations of a law who were not what, Harris there were other things that had a cognitive understanding who had obligations to a law creations before us who had a responsibility to Allah. But there's one unique species that came out of the malleus salon were entered into a new from his offspring and its progeny.
The second name is
the forgettable one, one after the other. We gave a covenant to other men from long ago before he came to this earth.
Fantasyland. Imagine Depo asthma. But we found that Adam was forgetful and had no constancy in his remembrance and his deliverance of what was ordered. And therefore you and I were created with a particular defect. Our natural default is the fifth law is a natural inclination of doing what is good doing what is right but there's a defect that we forget. So a law sends to you and I add the cross cutting an ever important to wise reminder.
And therefore the Orion one of its names is Vic. What in the holodeck, it is a reminder. Allah subhanho wa Taala wants you to remember the word Vic in the context of the Quran means one of five things the word dick means one of five things something you know but forgot something you don't know what that something you don't know and I was going to introduce it something you know but didn't forget but one to forget pretend it's not in your life pretend you don't see it. Like I don't know.
I think is something that is a reminder to you so that you can remind others for that field in the quantum realm of money remember your Mohammed so that you remind them as well so when they see you pray, they pray when they see you make your decree or to speak they will make their dick show the profits of a lot of audio and send them said in the A to will eat a lot. He was still feel a whole video at Salomon, Sabrina. Why does he tell you how much is the founders he makes a lot
to remind you, he's not showing off a little like, could you imagine if I come to you and I say Solomonic magic today I did 100 so far.
What are you telling me that Mohamed Salah he was sending me to buy Yahoo Finance, show it to people so a lot of you are sending them when
people need to see this example. Finally, number five, the word dig. It has the context
of you remembering that there is a day you will be questioned that inside your heart you try to forget. So you live your life in a way where you have to live mm. Or have a long life. I have many days I have many moments in sha Allah, I will make Toba I'll go to Hajj
and you forget that at any moment at any time you can be returned to Allah subhanho wa Taala without warning.
Allah subhana wa tada has created you as an intern who forgets though he's giving you the capacity to remember and from the orders of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to recite upon us the whole and to remind to us where you are live on community tab when hate matter where you said to purify you, meaning take away the things that you're doing wrong by showing you what to do right in its place. And the concept of victory is that Allah subhanho wa Taala introduces for us the right things to do before he strips us away of the wrong things we need to stay away from for our own benefit. So whenever you hear a loss of Hannah went to Ireland speaking beforehand, he says what
horrible. Then he says one hand in Hong Kong, instruct them in what is good. And then remind them about what is evil forbidden upon them.
So you are in session
one who is prone to forgetting their relationship with Allah subhanaw taala
a lot created you
and made your tech Queen from three themes. There are three parts of me as I sit in front of you now and three different components that are together. This is from an Islamic philosophical perspective. The first thing I am is this
70% of me is what
what john nominal
I destined the law said I created everything that is hype. given life from this water.
In front of you, you in front of me, most of you is h
me to have a lock Napa from the earth, you were creative. One meaning had your ego come into the earth you will be buried for me to handle free to come out and
see the wound of this tree. And me and you are very similar. Your inorganic species Did you know your Abdullah, when someone had a defective heart, there was a problem with their heart at Valve that instead of keeping the blood out, it would see blood, you're going to die. They said, Hey, we need to fix this. Let's find an animal like this room because you can open a human being you can take another human beings heart, put it in you and keep them alive. Let's take a valve from a species similar to a human being.
So they went to the pig.
They, you know, a pig's heart. If you were to see it, you can tell the difference between it and a human heart. Unless you run tests, from looking at it, no difference. The valves are the same that genetic makeup is almost identical 99.9% identical to you and army.
So they would take that, put it in them, stitch it into the proper valve of another human being. And people will live for many, many years decades with a little concoction of drugs to make your body not rejected. It recognizes its genetic similarity.
As a physical being you're from this water, you're from the same genetic sources, that everything else that walks the earth very similar to you.
A primate very similar to you.
So what makes you different?
Well, you're not just physical. You are a medicine, but you're more than about them. You're more than just the physicality you're more than this.
So there is another component. The second component is you have
you been given rationale, discernment understanding, you're able to decide right from wrong good from bad, you have emotions and expressions and language, the loss of Canada Medina says, Yeah, yohannes enough, I mean, that carry more
than one for that you let me down for that you talk with one another, recognize one another. And one of the creation of a love that is given to us is that we have a communicative capacity I lemon in Santa man
is the first word
Bismillah beacon Levy, Holla Holla insane I mean Allah
wa bukalapak from a levy, I learn a little further, when the angels ask Allah so Allah subhanho wa Taala, not asking in rejection, but in understanding I think many of
us we could demand one afternoon simply for becoming the camera, no law, or law will you put upon the earth, one who will share the blood and cause corruption because they've seen it in the previous creations of alone
in the other species that are like us that weren't special. But there were other creations who had levels of knowledge levels of intellect.
What makes them different. So Allah says why
Allah gave Adam knowledge. Tomorrow Don't
call me on eBay has not
shown me the knowledge you have called Illa mal antenna,
cornea Adam, and
tell them about the names of all things knowledge, you and I only have the capacity to learn. More importantly, not just to learn and keep within, but to learn and to teach. It's unique.
But other species are able to train and learn. Monkeys are being taught at the moment to read and write.
monkeys have a greater cognitive capacity to you and if I was to give you a 10 digit number, and I asked you to remember it, and then come back a little while later you forget it.
If I give you 10 digits, 10 digits, forget it. If I give you the order you forget. eights are able to keep it though things are able to keep it
from physical or intellectual, the third is we've been given something other things have not, which is called the ruler.
you've been given a soul that makes you different to the animals makes you accountable to a loss of Hannah Montana, no more some kind of a Donna says that he created but the items he asks me
in the best and most complete of his creation. So Hannah Montana, and therefore you and I is an individual.
We've been created with the three components. Anytime one of them is not addressed. Your life is out of balance and you're unhappy.
Internally, mankind is prone to excess. And what are you studying now? They believe themselves self serving, I don't need anyone.
He laid out them become Buddha does that person not know that to a law that will be their return
you'll have this capacity to go too far.
Too far physically,
too far mentally. And sadly, too far in extreme
The loss of Hannah Montana, therefore settings for us something to Central us something to bring you back to a Serato mustafi in a straight level path
to a path that is neither a flop or toughly. It's neither excessive nor negligent, that you don't go too much, or too little. My loss of Hannah Montana brings you back to the center. And one of the greater aims of the month of Ramadan in your surrender to a one year submission to Allah as a part of your total heat is that you say Oh, I love what you're asking me to do, I will do even if at times I do not understand it's complete wisdom and aim.
You begin later to understand some reasons. And we don't fast because it's good for our health, but it is good for your health.
Those who fast, excepted consecutive days one after another are less likely
to have free radicals within their system, cancerous cells within their system. It purges, especially within your gut, you're less likely to contain a lot of bad bacteria in your stomach, which is now being seen as one of the most powerful reasons for a lot of the cancers and ailments that troubles human beings, little bacteria within you.
There's many reasons that can be deduced from the wisdom of fasting. But I want you to think of the higher aims as a human being physically.
So Young comes to recalibrate, readjust
your processes, your physical being, intellectually, if you're fasting correctly, which we will talk about that shortly in sha Allah, it begins to allow your mind to be clear about what your real goals and aims in life should be, what your plans should be, how you should think of your place in the world and your place with other people. And third, and finally, it comes as the law says, could you Valley from Leon kamakoti Valley levina main company from La La home, the home that you may throw in a sense of consciousness what taco Hakuna taco is in within here, within your heart, meaning within your spirit, within your soul? It's a part of who you are, it's an expression of your faith in Allah
subhana wa into Anna,
I want to clarify something for you in chat law. There's a difference between Sudan and South
Sudan. They come from the same group. Yes. Some is voluntary.
So Young is mandatory. When I'm also kind of speaks about fasting the month of Ramadan, the use of the word to young cookiebot A Kumasi young fasting is mandatory, so young, in our Chevy is that there's no food or water when the sun is up or conjugal relations with your space. I love that. So yeah. So is in addition to seeing
the profits of the long running we send them described soul as being now an extra process of thought that you do not just the hunger and thirst of the body, not just physical, but it's an intellectual pursuit. Many
Let me get that hold up zoo, when I'm gonna be
the one who is unable or unwilling or incapable or leaving off vanity of speech, sinful words, sinful discussions gossip, backed by lying slander, the one who doesn't leave off those words. today. He said he now he had Yeah, and yadda yadda for animilitia allies and no need of them to leave their food in their drink.
Because now it's not just Leon. It's not just food and drink. It's not some money and Maria sent him a lot orders her that when she is carrying her child as she's walking, bending US law is going to accuse you of having committed sinfulness to produce this child.
Thing mentally and emotionally I hadn't
been allowed to know what money so man, which assignment felon who killed him and the young man in Syria. The conceptualization of Sloane is that you're going past the normal so young, it's an active process, where you make decisions of what you say, what you hear, what you see, what you spend, who your when it becomes a process where you voluntarily go beyond hunger and thirst,
among maganda May Allah make us of those who have sung to Allah subhana wa tada and not just fulfill the obligation of CME, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he warns us,
not just about CME, but even about solid enough that they can eat, for example, the profits on the long run he was selling themselves.
Perhaps a man an individual farmer, you suddenly will stand up and pray to Allah when a new level and nothing will be written in reward for that individual in lambda school, ha,
ha ha, they will only get half of the reward of their prayer, a quarter of the reward of their prayer, maybe for some at 1030.
They stood up to Allah and he got one out of 10 in reward. And there are some who will fast the month of Ramadan, and they don't get the reward of sallyann because they have not permitted themselves to enter into song.
So their punishment is not that they are didn't fast to a law, their punishment is that they're not getting the completeness of its reward, a minute agenda. law protects us from being a victim.
I want you to start beginning to think about the month of Ramadan is bringing harmony to those three parts of who you are physically, intellectually and spiritually.
Reboot, restart. Going back to a purity of beginning one of the most beautiful statements of the profits of the long run innocent and I want you to think about why the reward of sallyann
is this particular reward that your sins are forgiven?
Why is it that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah informs our prophets I send them are so Moody, we're an extra HCD
fasting is only for Allah. And only Allah will give it through
every good deed you do. It's multiplied minimum by 10 times you recite and if let
me search 30 has an olive Olive lamb part of me. Well, Hashem has to be actually
Illa solemn, Allah says except fasting. For me, it's only for me, what adds up, I'm the one who gives it reward greatly or a Sema, a smaller amount. The basis of CRM
is what psychologists today would call deferred gratification. So
in to teach you to be patient
is to hold on when others crumble is to go further than others would is to learn that in life, not everything should come the moment you want it.
And that you can look at your watch and there's half an hour left Firstly, I'm and you're hungry and nobody's there, but I'm not going to break my trust with a lot. I can be sitting in my office on a hot day. Nobody in the world will see that I took a sip of water, nobody.
But it's between me and Allah. Wa so Woody, why not?
Nobody knows what is the reward that I will have with a lot because it's with a loss of time and went to
In your work for saw the Luna at your home the leader hasaan. What makes us understand that Southern Sudan are attached to each other is that Allah uses the same reward for both act as being equal to each other, the one who has patience, they will be given a reward that is unlimited, while the one who finds to Allah and perform so with their Seon, their reward is unlimited with a loss of Hannah, which is
why did I use that word delayed gratification. In the 50s
psychologists had an experiment, it's called the marshmallow test. They would bring in young children three, four years old, bring them into a room system at a table, a camera and the coordinator, the child doesn't know who's recording. As they're sitting at the table, they would put a marshmallow that was the treat.
They put a marshmallow in front of them. And they would say to this four year old boy and girl, this marshmallow is yours. But you can eat it. But if you wait until I go to my office and come back, I'll give you another another one. You'll get two marshmallows.
Just wait three minutes. I'm going to go to my room and I'll come back if you can. Wait, don't touch this. Don't eat this. If I come back, this marshmallow is still here. I'll give you a second one you've double what you have.
They found that there were a number of types of children one child before the men even left aged
he's like yeah, yeah, okay, I'll you Mashallah. How impulsive could not wait. And not stop.
There was another child who was deceptive.
They pick it up, make it
smell it, take a little bit of the powder, eat the base of it.
Eat half of it, put it back. Take another piece put it back.
They come back and then what happened? I don't know.
Who did it I didn't see. You shouldn't even touch it.
The third and they're less than 15%
less than 15%. With those saw the marshmallow and waited.
I can get to Mashallah double
sum when the men came back they said if I wait more, will you give me another one.
I'll wait here all day.
I have that string. By the way you're not born with that. You're taught that it's something your parents to do now might assist us to prepare our children for life.
Some of us we weren't taught that. Some of us you want something so you cry your mother gives it
you throw something so you're here. The child begins to cry take my phone.
You're hungry eat.
Everything is provided before request. There's no suffering, no deliberation. So some of it is because when we were younger we didn't have what we wanted. So now that we have children, I'm going to give them what they want. So Panama I used to ask and I couldn't have now I can give Why should he not?
And we create a monster
in them a you want to add your home.
Have you ever walked into a brother or sisters house and for the children they built a Toys R Us
they had every toy machine among the shop and none of the toys are being played with and they keep adding more and more and more. You go home and you see one of the children has got a PlayStation how many games you have 1420 1515 games How many of you play by play one or two?
Because we've been taught al hakam and the castle
You want more? So a lot LD Lana dye. This little one saw
this patient, you're going to assist his hands how many scarf that she had. She's got a pink scarf, a light pink scarf, a dark pink scarf, a pink scarf with grey with orange with yellow.
I remember my wife I like the idea of having a hammer.
She says Yeah. Can you get me a gray and pink scarf. I said you have one close now. This is pink and gray.
Gray and pink or pink and gray. It's the same thing. I'm like this life.
The first group of children impulsive. You know what they did with these children and they followed them for
40 years, those same children from 1952, they followed them into the senior us until they began to pass away.
The children who ate what he posted, were the least likely to finish school, the least likely to have a career, the least likely to remain married, the least likely to advance in their finances and own their own home. This is reality, right? The least likely to succeed in a material physical sense, metric sense.
The ones who were deceptive were the ones who would succeed and then lose it.
They get married and be happy and have children and then lie and get divorce.
They'd have a career and finish school in advance and blow it all.
They were the ones who are most likely to have addictive behaviors.
tobacco and alcohol, Xena, they were the ones who fell into problems although they had success in life. They gambled it away.
were the ones who became the distributors.
The ones who are happily married, the ones whose children also resisted the marshmallow test.
sub is something taught.
Allah teaches us sobre la
rocky Macumba he said that patriots is of three times the most difficult thing to be patient, a Sabra Island not more. To Be patient in what Allah asked you to do.
In the HANA career of sada ally it's a big thing. Very difficult.
In other hajjarian except the one who's humble, who's silent in their heart with a BA,
you will have a greater battle with your soul with your mind with your body to wake up for failure to every day of your life, than it will be for you to not take drugs, not to commit Zina, that's easy not to drink alcohol or go to a bar or committed rebound. It's more difficult for you to do your phone now than it is to stay away from prom.
Because it's a real, it's a major theme, a Sabra fly, when you're ready to do the very difficult second, a sovereign
to be patient. And when a law says Don't come near the protocol I said and said either, in fact to be methodical, whenever I recommend something, do as much of it as you can. And that's why there's so many of web to hide, so many gates are good, you can do all of them. You do as much of them as you can, when either now hate to come on chain.
But when I tell you stay away from something, don't go near it some a lot, a
third, a something better. The least thing that you have to worry about is something when I'm not testing, although that's the one we put in our mind. It requires some discipline. That's the least thing you have to worry about. It's not often that Allah sends you a bar map a major calamity.
Piquionne in merata normal routine once or twice a year to afternoon you get a fitna
every day, there's federal every day there's a shot.
So a mug gives you the month of Ramadan and adds it extra for that Panama Have you ever seen the Muslim who doesn't recognize you but comes to follow me? Well law law in my community so Camelot there'll be some brothers who are not regular in the ministry
not the I mean maybe even some of the Federal complaint should speak to him about federal so canon law the month of Ramadan comes suffering
fornia aka a broker doesn't matter what you pray he's there the whole night
the wish for the high you
you will see somebody who doesn't who doesn't pray fast in the month of Ramadan long hours
you don't want a job maybe you don't pray and the month of Ramadan hungry and thirsty for a month because it's meant to encourage you to change things within you whether you're committed and that's a blessing thing don't ever make anyone feel awkward about increasing their a bath in the month of Ramadan say Where were you asking you if
you're only a worship in Ramadan Yeah, I'm hungry LA.
Mama give them Shabana Ramadan man, look into
May Allah increase the year after year
when were you
a few years ago
and therefore Ramadan comes to teach us
to delay gratification, to be able to hold on for something greater. So a lot of promises you the greatest thing for fasting that there's a door in Jelena lion in the salt you know no one enters from that door except the one who festival muscle panels.
May Allah allow us to enter from that gate along.
My final words of advice in Sha,
I don't take too much of your time
is amending the height of change and methodology, things that you can do building one on top of the other to bring about change this or Milan that maybe you did not experience in previous homeobox first of them is an easier intention.
The prophets Allah La Jolla alayhi wa sallam said, Well, I would have eaten the first alliums of a body, another house sitting on the bottom line and bla bla from a literal meaning.
And he's the only one who reports it from the prophets of Allah.
Allah azza wa jal Bahar, nobody
in America have immediate actions or judge in accordance to their intentions. What does this mean?
It means in everything in life, when you put a goal in your mind, you will achieve it.
You want to be an engineer? Yes, you want to be an engineer. You make that media here, you can see it in your mind. You put it in here and you're going to give that you're going to work. If you put a target in your mind, you want to be a millionaire, you put it in here and work towards it.
This is what a lot is saying. enamel Anna Lou Binya, you know some of the unbelievers they have the same they call it the secret. You listen to Oprah Winfrey and these people she says, I found the secret to success. What is it? You wish in your mind and it will come?
Meaning near you put in your mind your target and work towards it. It sounds simple. But it's difficult. anything you've ever made true sincerely, and for you have accomplished in your life. Go back with yourself. Sit with yourself tonight. And I want you to think about the things you were serious about in your mind and your heart. You said I'm gonna do it. Anything you said I'm gonna do it. And then you gave it Amen. You put it into practice you attain it. It's a promise of a lot and is very welcome advice.
So what's your idea for Ramadan? You smoke?
Make any media? What's your idea? What do you want? I say this to some of my students. I'm a principal. I'm a deputy principal of high school.
Are you here to be cool? That's what you get. You're the cool guy in school because
you dress cool. You talk. You're hanging out cool.
No problem. Are you here to be an A student. That's your name. You're going to do your homework, you're going to give attention in class, you're going to sit away from your friends, you're going to take some of your lunch and your reason to do extra work. You're going to follow up with your teacher that's your Nia law, you're gonna achieve it. What do you want? What do you want out of life?
What's your aim?
in Tamil Nadu, India,
in another way in Nevada, man to be me. Yeah. Not me yet flew the media one year.
What's the one thing you're going to focus on?
And I want you now to sit with yourself. You know what Allah says to the machine. I do come to Africa. Allah says I give you advice in one thing.
And the whole map now of all of that when you're thinking there, we're thinking should we believe in Mohammed or not?
Matt Namah Harada sit by yourself. Or maybe with someone you trust one other person don't sit in a group and talk. Talking is for fools. You have action. That's what you do. That's how you gain Mac now Florida, you and one other person or just on your own some methods that go then you think
I make a decision.

What's going to be your success? What are you going to achieve?
the knee? Yeah.
Your Iman will only follow what you need is at any time you do admin and stop. Anytime you begin something and it ends you don't complete it. Do you know what the problem was?
You start a tool to finish it. Why? Because you weren't interested you it's not your media.
It's not your media. You didn't take it serious. It's not your mind, not your heart. There's no drive. That's what athletes talk about. They talk about you know, you got spirit. He's got courage. He won't stop. He gets he gets put down. He gets up. Nia called heart to what I keep a boxer standing on his feet.
It's not that his body can take more punches, but his heart can. Nia
for the profits a lot he was sending he says in the heat of Lima Muslim.
They're in your body there's a place either solid or solid.
If that place is pure, which is where your intentions inside, if it's sorry, everything else will be said
with a feather that fastener if it's not everything else comes to ruin. Man look, give us some hearts along man. So make your media this formula. What do you want? Do you want to finish the whole plan from beginning to end? Do you want to make sure you pray every single rock it with a man?
Do you want to change something negative in your life that you're struggling with outside Ramadan and you will hope that Allah will help you will soon see that you shall be model the telegin that the devils are put away that you can focus is that your media?
This is the month it's a month of Baraka.
Number two, understand that the month of Ramadan is Chow mobile. It's a month of blessing. Do you know what the word Baraka means?
Who can tell me what what is Barack Obama have you
It's excessive good. That comes after hardship. So Pamela, think of everything Allah said it has
a loss of hemorrhoids. Allah tells us Mecca maka Rama is a place of Baraka. Yet he when he said to Ebrahim, go to this valley in Baca Ibrahim season. He says three of them however these are there is no vegetation. No water in the bay taken Muharram near your sacred house. Yeah, Allah. It's barren. Nobody here
sense somebody who have soft hearts to my wife and is married my son.
Where is the bottom?
It's not in it coming on its own. It's in your struggle. How can I lay a salon she stands on a mountain of sofa about to die.
Day after day her washer has come to an end to her milk has dried up her son is crying.
She's making the son of the Prophet is thirsty. Yeah, Allah alone is not enough.
So she runs from one mountain to the other. Major again. Nothing again 123567.
Finally, Allah says the Indian
Baba, Baba can lead hardship
that your patient in to receive reward. Allah describes better luck with Jerusalem and let him die off and I hope Baraka all around Jerusalem is the most contented, contested city in human history. Destroyed over and over and over and destroyed by the Romans destroyed during the purge and destroyed, destroyed destroyed with
Zion. Allah mentions it in Salton Baqarah Okay, let him
he comes upon this city, this village that used to be a place of worship. He sees Jerusalem having been destroyed way ahalya tonight arushi How can I How can I bring this who will come to worship Allah here again? So I'm not the one who may have lost
Allah puts in mind your death through Nevada weeks. Mr. Alexander is
more than 100 years old. Man with your horse it your donkey is dead.
They put it back into your bones come together.
Go now and see the city.
After destruction, you rise
after heartbreak after scene after mistake to become better.
You change the month of Ramadan after hunger after thirst after soda after giving you become better.
Baraka is ascribed to the month of Ramadan, Sha, MOBA it's a month of difficulty to attain ease in the manner of use. There is no use or without because you won't know it's useful unless you've experienced a loss. Unless you've experienced hardship, you won't enjoy the ease. Unless you know difficulty you will not understand facility.
May Allah Subhana Allah give us Baraka allow us to endure the hardship with Sadat with faith in Allah.
Was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Libyan Mubarak. Did anybody have more Baraka Mohammed? Salah? Nobody, and that's why you have the most difficult life. Some of the highest he buried five children, some of the law days Could you imagine? He buried grandchildren he buried spouses his wife Khadija money rhodiola Juana how long
uncle who he loved, but would not come to faith.
In Nakata, demon
He would see our mom

The next time I see you is genuine.
your promise would mean I will see if I can't do anything about
this man, move on his hair banca his fichte Baraka, his touch Baraka his your Baraka yet

so understand Baraka understand that when you ask a law for higher in the month of Ramadan you might not be given higher straight away unless you have to struggle and a struggle is a good thing it means a laws helping you protecting you saving you from Alabama and how we there's two ways a law tests us regularly small ways every day every week something some common law comes up Yeah, right and left every day or something difficult. He said the law
has to be alone
a lot sufficiently or may or may not protect everything is happy
nothing bad if you're sitting with me right now and nothing bad be worried. The prophets I seldom said a movement level so law at the lever has a headache so the lower center
of the lever always has a headache always I'm worried on their mind if you're sitting here and you Mashallah that ilaha illa Allah May Allah protect your
profits I tell them sir
Come on. Oh Lima baja de la
for more if you see a lot giving somebody everything they know everything you everything they love
that man that woman you see them also see every time they want something from Allah their job family, happy money health. Pamela I don't mean doesn't pray when you pray and found your into had you then withdraw and Sunnah. Subhana Allah Fisher have been looking for a job for eight months, one year, two years. chefs have come along my father's unwell My mother is this.

Understanding that difficulty is
it's a blessing.
And the month of Ramadan is a month, where you want to put your body to test fast and pray, be hungry and thirsty, be tired,
have black eyes under black marks under your eye you only slept for hours. Because you did your plan and you recited your plan. And you would like it as Allah
has wanted. The prophets of Allah He was seldom said asleep when for an illegal act cannot only Muslim so young and foreign will ask a lot to protect you on the Day of Judgment. Your furusiyya probably even a two hour show although a shot was
so young will say oh I kept him from eating and drinking and is lost in the day along with your fear and if you're in love Let me speak on His behalf. We have food for the whole animal say a lot of men the men have to know medically
or like kept him awake at night.
For an for half an hour.
It was meant to be recited in melody in the evening hours. Yeah Johan was telling me the Pullman lady
that the job had to go home and in Madhya Allah says that your back your shoulder has Jessica has hates for your bed as hate
your job. That means if you walk into a room and you see someone you say disgusted by you, you walk out that's what a believer has when they see their bed at night. Alabama chef a I'll give you an example of a chef I used to make an app against his bed.
He would look at his bed and he would say
man You're so soft
you keep asking me to come and sleep man
I hate you
that comfortable there just for
the month of Ramadan. There's there's totally 100 sada and there's
go with the honey you will find the bug third and finding the hidden in the data
is to make peace with those who wronged us or we have wronged them. And I begin with those who wronged you and say
if I if they wronged me Why do I make peace with them? They should make peace with me.
You don't understand the deen of Allah so again, if this is your mind,
you need to find love in Ramadan.
I've written two articles called finding love in Ramadan part one in
google it in Sharma read it on your own time. In the month of Ramadan. One of your greatest aim is to fix what others have broken
You're gonna say to me, Chef, yeah, this guy, this girl, this lady on law he they're wrong. Well, lucky. They said about me. Well, like they did to me. Well, it took for me and I say I agree. mesh.
hello, what do you want me to do?
Don't let them do it to you again. But Forgive me.
What killing amarinder needed to Abbas and Hannah die.
But if that person who took from me who wronged you who borrowed
Money didn't return it asked you to come to his daughter's wedding go. They get sick. Visit
his llama barn and they invite you for food. Eat it and go
up one Muslim, Allah Muslim. Pamela, you see them?
say SLM or even before they say, Well, let me see if I, if I say, if he saw me he wouldn't say it to me. I didn't ask if he would say to you, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, the one who's better is the one who begins. But he owes me money. I know he owes you money. What does that have to do with that one, and massage that you came to the metric that many stands with you and he faces off into each other? He's a Muslim.
He owes you money asked him for it. As somebody to intervene, given time, forgive me.
But don't put in your heart rubella. Una de la.
Or la don't put in our heart anger, anger, wrath against those who believe that.
Or lucky, it's difficult. It's difficult in your heart to free from hate towards someone who you should hate them in someone. There's no reason for you to love them. They rongji
one of the most beautiful Hadith.
And there's a chapter for
the prophets I send them said
that said, What's your picture? Why'd you read my handwriting? My love the love of Allah is YG
To those who love others for me. You don't need to say I had that a lot better. I love you for a loss sake. What does this mean?
I remember my teacher he said to me.
What do you want me to say? I said yeah.
We love each other.
More than this.
It's that you love the unlovable.
I love my mother. Of course. She's your mother. I love my father. I love my children love my wife, love my friends love my family easy.
You want a love love. It's not to love them. That's natural.
You have to find love in your heart only for Allah sake. If it wasn't for Allah, I would hate you. If it wasn't for Allah, I wouldn't look in your face. If you're watching for a live would never stand next to you. But
that person was handed a lot into Islam.
A lot of men
that the prophets all along ask you for your love
and the love of those who love
and love you
and the love of doing what will bring you love. What is this doing is that you love others who are unlovable, difficult to love. Who took from you who wronged you who misspoke in the month of Ramadan is the month you're going to say Allahu la fille de la Forgive me. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, it'll have melted out of your hand for Memphis center. If you show compassion and forgiveness to those who live with you on Earth. The one above the heavens will show you compassion meaning or love Forgive me. You can turn them and say well, I'll never forgive you.
never forgive you
How can you drive the
no in the month of Ramadan that you do it is subjective to what you're willing to give to others. May Allah subhana wa tada open our hearts
to asking him to give guidance to those who wronged us. Could you imagine if the prophets of Allah what he would send them? Could you love ermotti along line?
Could you imagine
it because of their past through their actions, the prophets I send them couldn't fosse by herself, help me
open a new beginning.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala his blessing the month of Ramadan fix what we have broken and connect hearts that have been separated. I think if there's someone in your home in your family that you're not speaking with before the month of Ramadan, give them a call. Well, I had two brothers blood brothers who hadn't spoken with each other. He means
and I'm sitting with this. I said, Call your brother. He was the last boy. I'm the only one
who can beat me. He has to come
You're in front of me call your brother. He goes well, I deleted his number. He doesn't even have his brother's number in his phone. I said so.
Here's his number. Yeah, I can remove it. When I go home I said Oh damn. Right now
if he sees my number he won't answer I said I'm not asking you if he will enter or not. I'm asking you Cole.
he looks at me I'll
his brother starts crying
in the afternoon I missed it.
So he starts crying or lying last day
if you were to ask them why did the fight start we can remember
over the winter eating the bad for what what separate
I can't remember exactly what he said exactly what he did. But he must have done ties
in this pleasant month of Ramadan
open your heart even to those who you don't feel deserve it. They may not deserve it but a lot of demand they don't deserve it. But a lot asks you Allah to hit
this one Don't you want a lot to forgive you forgive?
Don't you want a lot to forgive you?
A lot of muffins and I was laughing
a lot Medina you know which turned out that I didn't ask the last panel data to open our hearts to lead us to that which is pleasing to Him to make us from those who are fortunate that he's doing an alpha and to make us from those who have a Ramadan that is accepted along number 11 on Ramadan ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to reach the month of Ramadan along with a minimum of on our previous Ramadan mailmark Executive from us a lot of money or if you have to try or something that
was it was a you know whenever you know Mohamed Salah Maha it was Saturday. I said
before I turn you over
and the brothers from Muslim aid, they asked me to see to offer you happiness. So you have two options in Sharma. All right. I'm going to take in China and I say this not to for no other reason than to inspire. Today I'm going to commit to 60 pounds for the month to feed a family to Canada. A whole family for the whole month of Ramadan.
You have an opportunity that you're so young is not one so yeah, but it could be the CMO 567 people everyone you feed you get there
man. Mm hmm. Said the one who gives a five to one who is fasting can the level mythical Angela saw in
the one who gets through to somebody fasting, they receive the reward of the one who is fasting even though the reward of the one who's fasting will not diminish.
And perhaps the one who is fasting in need in poverty and hardship. Maybe their fasting is accepted and yours is deficient. Now muscle panel down allow all of us to make a commitment to 60 pounds.
Two pounds a day. Well luckily I bought a cup of coffee. Your coffee is very expensive in London.
four pounds 50 What is this? Do you know what that is in Australia? That's $9 I get a coffee for $3 20. That's like three cups of coffee in Australia. London is not cheap.
For a cup of coffee, you can earn genuine
You can save yourself with half a day.
It does not want to be shipped
Tomorrow I have a date.
Buhari, a Muslim, a woman knocked on the door.
And she had two young daughters. And she came to the house of urbanization, asking for food. She has nothing for herself in
Asia in the time of poverty before high Eva, she turns to her and she says that we don't have anything except the three dates. She only had three three Tama in the house of Nabina. Muhammad.
For Tamiya, she gave it to the woman when you give it to the woman, she gave one to this one to this daughter, and she's gonna eat the third. By the time she gave this one, one.
And they looked up at the the one in her hand. So her son met her. They know she broke the date and she kept hungry, mother home, she stayed hungry, and she gave it to them, sadly, but minha actually surprised, astonished by the math and why. When the Prophet returned, she told me I also love this woman that this is a father that she fed her own daughter, her own daughter, the prophets I send them say, gentlemen, is hers. Some
May Allah give this gentleman through the service and feeding of others up to a more
precise and unsexy people that hold him gently jannetty set up your entertainment in peace, law Medina.
The second option is that you do one pound a day, which is 30 pounds for the month of Ramadan. Whichever of the two up, I prefer for you 60 times in law, where you live to live with human nature. May Allah give us the reward many more times, Allah May Allah use your wealth for more than you and your family. May Allah use your wealth. For those who you've never met Subhana Allah the Prophet size hasn't said a sort of a boreham charity is evidence on the data, you'll see darkness all around you and then there's light far away.
You'll see light and say who's like this My life? I see my life. This is me. This is my evidence or law, bring it to me and someone will come in it's your
evidence for you on the day of government that what Allah gave you You didn't keep to yourself. You shared it with them. It's now law increasing and good. Do your part in child law for those who are near and far more significant moments anyone's privacy, you know, whenever you have a roof over your head over stuff in the lobby. So kind of a lot more handy for sure, like events and stuff that are quite doable right hand off to solder. If you need to make your own. Oh, please do refresh. It was at MIT
