What's your particular words of advice regarding the on the occasion of Ramadan approaching us?
My advice would be that every Muslim, he or she should make it a point that they should make a resolution that they should fast each and every day of this lesson month from now. And we should try and acquire all the benefits of this month. And we should not waste a single minute in this segment on things which are evil, and try and concentrate as much as possible. In remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala
we should try and look for his mercy. We have to try and ask for forgiveness.
We have to try and seek for his love. And we have to try and increase our piety, our righteousness and our patients
and our beloved prophet of Muslims.
In sable Harris Howdy. We're number three, in the book of fasting. How did number 1903 our beloved prophet masala Sallam said anyone who does not leave
the force action and for speech,
Allah subhanho wa Taala does not care if he leaves his eating and drinking. That means if a person does not abstain from false action and false speech, alas, vanadyl does not care if you abstain from food and drink. That means your fasting will not be accepted, unless you stay away from for section and for speech.
And a beloved prophet masala sallam. He also said it's mentioned Saturday,
which is written in Muslim amad run number two, Page Number 230 added number 714 it and it also appears in sooner Nephi chapter number five added number 2106 where our beloved prophet masala son said all people
the blessing month of Ramadan is approaching.
And Allah has ordained for you that you fast in this month.
And the gates of heaven will be open in this month and the gates of hell will be closed and the devils they will be chained
in this month is the night
which is better than 1000 months.
And if a person is deprived of the blessings in this month, he is truly a deprived person. So we have to make it a point that we gain the benefits of this segment.
A Beloved Prophet masala Some said as mentioned say Buhari 123. In the book of fasting,
added number 1901
a beloved prophet masala Some said
that anyone who fasts in this month
with faith, seeking that award of Allah subhanho wa Taala all his past sins will be forgiven.
That means if we truly with sincerity, fasting this month and feed that word of Allah subhanaw taala all of our past sins will be forgiven. Imagine it is such an easy way to have our sins forgiven of the past. And our beloved prophet masala samosa is mentioned say Buhari
was number three, in the book of fasting, and did number 1904. This is a very long Hadith, which has basically four points. Our beloved prophet muscle of someone said that all the children of Adam, all the deeds that they do, are for themselves, except for fasting. Fasting is for me, and I will reward him.
And he further said that fasting is a shield.
It prevents you from sin.
And the person who observed the fast it should abstain from obscenity, from yelling, and from ignorance. And if someone yells at him,
or abuses him, he should say, I'm fasting and fasting.
And the third point a beloved Prophet said in this additives, that I swear by Allah, in whose hand is the soul of Mohammed Salah that the breath of a faster the person who fasts is sweeter to Allah subhanho wa Taala, than the scent of musk.
And he finally said that there are two things when a foster is happy and looks forward to it. The first is when he breaks the first and the second is when he meets the Lord at last minute.
And further, as mentioned, the Quran
is renewed. Chapter number 24 was number 31 it says or you believe
truly have faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala
and fake the bliss. That means time and agenda, as mentioned to the
verse 13, and 14,
that those are the people who worship none but Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And they are steadfast in faith, the word is to come.
They're steadfast in faith, that there's only one Allah, no one else. And they shall not have any fear, nor that a grief. These are the people who are the people of Paradise and they shall be rewarded for all the goods they have done.
So this is advice for the people that they should take the best of this month and should not spend time on trivial things and spend the time in the worship of Allah and reaming Allah subhanaw taala and asking forgiveness Mashallah.
