Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh How's everybody doing with fasting? I hope you hope inshallah you're all reaping the fruits of the beauty of this month and sha Allah. Just remember that fasting is not just fasting of our valleys, right? Our mouths are fasting from saying anything that displeases God, our ears are fasting from listening to anything that is not we're not supposed to be listening to our eyes are fasting from not looking at anything that we're not supposed to be looking at. Our entire body is in submission to Allah subhanaw taala. And fasting from anything that displeases Allah. And I know some people sometimes feel like, Oh, my God, well, I just said this, or
I looked at this, or I listen to this, but I just break my fast. No, as long as you're aware of your actions, you're not an hafla, you're not kind of like sleeping off and dozing and not realizing that you are fasting. That's great, right? You're aware of your actions, you're in continuous state of what, like, basically, in a fight with yourself, you're going back and forth, back and forth. It's perfectly fine, as long as you're aware, and you're doing continuous tob and sha Allah and then getting back again on that track. Now, the thought I want to share with you today, a lot of us kind of grow up. And of course, we love Ramadan, it's exciting and this and that. But we don't fully kind
of appreciate the ability of being able to fast, I want to share with you a personal story for the past two years. Subhanallah one night before Ramadan starts, I get very sick, and I can't fast and Subhanallah I remember that first month, when the last day of Ramadan, the last day of the metric came in. And I knew I wasn't going to be fasting, the month is over Ramadan was over and I couldn't fast. And I realized Subhan Allah, it's such a blessing that we take for granted. So many people out there cannot fast and we just don't really appreciate it. But one thought that a very close friend of mine shared with me, that kind of soothe me a little bit. And she told me think of it this way.
There are so many people who are unfortunate, so many people who are not capable of purchasing what would suffice them to eat or break their fast and sometimes Allah subhanaw taala when some of us are ill, or some of us are elder or cannot fast in this illness, there is a sustenance for these people who are in need. It was such a beautiful meaning it was just like a little pat on the shoulder Subhanallah but it really did make me kind of realize that it's such a blessing that we take so much for granted. Fasting if you're able to fast now see Al Hamdulillah and really appreciate it and enjoy it as much as you can. I remember hamdulillah like you know the sloth the beginning of this
Ramadan when the first van of the metric came in and I completed my fast again. I was literally in tears and until this day I'm always afraid that I'm gonna get sick again Ramadan and I just said hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah think Allah subhanaw taala for the blessing of your health and use it wisely while you haven't. May you all inshallah have the best of health Europen sha Allah and complete your fast and have full fasting of all your parts of your body, not just your bellies, and inshallah you see the fruits of this inshallah and every single aspect of your life inshallah. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
