Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh so I wanted to share with you a couple of thoughts and things I learned within the past couple of weeks. I've been trying to prep for Ramadan, not just with my declarations, but also prep internally by listening to a lot of lectures and try to get that you know that neffs or the spiritualities up there in sha Allah. So a couple of things I want to share with you that I heard one from Imam Sahib Webb and the other one from Astana Manali Han. The first one was the meaning of the word Ramadan or where it comes from. And it comes from something called Ramadan, right or the root of the word is Ramadan, which basically what is heats or scorching

00:00:38--> 00:01:18

heat and when you think about it, when you want to have clean water, what do we do? You boil the water because that he gets rid of the toxins, and you get the water in its purest form. Same thing when you want to get the best out of a metal in its purest form, you heat it and the heat does what it gets rid of those toxins and as if Ramadan is coming to like, heal us out and kind of like squish us out and get all these toxins and purifies it up inshallah from our sins. The second thought that I learned or heard about this week as well was someone says nominally heard and it was really neat. And basically he said that he was talking about the idea of fasting. Yeah, you had Latina Emanuel

00:01:18--> 00:02:02

quotevalet CUCM Kamakoti Valentina mean, publikum La La Quinta Takuan. And he said something really good or neat? Basically, he said that fasting was prescribed upon you, as it was prescribed and those who came before you. Why? To be hungry to be thirsty to to what the main purpose is what La La Quinta taco and so that you may want to have taco and Taco we said before is basically being aware of Allah subhanaw taala its presence conscious laws, you know, where Allah subhanaw taala. And he said, the place for Taqwa is in our hearts in our club, right? And basically, is that it's like a struggle or a war. The goal is a conversation that goes between your heart and your stomach during

00:02:02--> 00:02:38

the day, right? Like your stomach gets really hungry during the day, you know, starts growling sends a message to the brain. The brain is like you know what's going on. And then the hearts like Stop it, no food right now. And then later on your stomach starts you know, making funky noises. We all know about those. Again, it sends another message and then the heart says like, just keep it down. There's no food now. And basically what he said is at the end of the day, every single day for 30 days, your heart wins, because that's where the taqwa is. And what I want to tell you basically is that shaytaan always tries to make us believe that we're not capable of doing things that we're not

00:02:38--> 00:03:17

going to be able to wear that hijab and keep it on, we're not going to be able to, you know, leave what Allah's pantallas forbidden us from doing and keep on or continue in doing that. Or we're not gonna be able to wake up for fish because it's going to be so hard, we're not gonna be able to do this or that shaitan is very, very clever in putting us down. But Allah subhanaw taala and Ramadan is telling you that I am showing you that your heart with your taqwa, you can win, and you win for 30 consecutive days. Because for 30 days, no one's watching you. You could be all by yourself. But again, what do you do? You don't eat although no one I know of course, Allah subhanaw taala is

00:03:17--> 00:03:53

watching but I mean physically, no one is watching you. It's between you and Allah subhanaw taala. And just like your heart wins, you have to understand coming out of Ramadan, that you have that power, it's inside of you, you are created with it. But you have to say I will be laying in the shade on the regime. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to eat you and to help you and be certain, just like you're going to be able in sha Allah to fast for 30 days this month, that in sha Allah, you're going to also be able to keep the good habits that you did in Ramadan. Whether it's praying your sin, or asking about your family, or visiting the sick or giving to whatever it is or controlling your

00:03:53--> 00:04:14

anger, whatever it is that you're struggling with. You have to know that you are capable of controlling yourself because if you can fast for 30 days, if your heart and the taqwa can win for 30 days, then you're capable of doing anything else. Insha Allah, may You all Europe have a very blessed Ramadan. We'll call it Santa Clara Robin Sharma Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
