Who you who believe fasting is prescribed upon you, as it was prescribed upon the people before you so that they could learn taqwa. This comes in the Holy Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala St. St. toccoa.
I'm going to explain to you in the my personal, best explanation insha Allah and hopefully you understand what that is. But the easiest example for taqwa
is that a person who identifies that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching him 24 hours. So for example, let's just say after fudger Salah, you're driving home, four o'clock in the morning, there's no pedestrians, there's no police officers, and you standing at a set of traffic lights. Now these traffic lights, have a camera, you know, has a camera, nobody's there, and you're going to go through those traffic lights. You're not because you know that there's a camera there. But let's just say that camera wasn't there. If the camera wasn't there,
there's a good chance some individuals who shouldn't be doing this, but some individuals would cross the camera nights and just drive through.
And one instance he's identifying that someone is not there but watching and one instance he's identifying that no one is there and he's going through. If a person brings into his life that Allah Subhana Allah is watching you with that camera. 24 hours, you're wrong and you're right, your sin and your good deed is seen by Allah subhanho wa Taala and you God fearing individual, and you always conscience that Allah is watching, I cannot commit the sin. This is what you call taco. Now what's the relation between taco and Ramadan?
It is the best explanation and we will stop here. Know in the month of Ramadan, Allah subhanho wa Taala says fast
and what did the Muslim oma start doing? They start to fast rather people start preparing. before Ramadan comes they start to prepare too fast. They start to buy the groceries they start to you know fixing their schedules and everything and because the month of Ramadan is coming, no the month of Ramadan arrives and now you're eating for 11 months. You will drinking for 11 months when you want it how you want it. You're doing things for 11 months.
The know the month of Ramadan. You can't do anything you can eat when you you cannot drink when you
for 11 months you were doing this and now all of a sudden you're not doing it for one month who you're doing that for
for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala you're doing it for Allah right? No in the month of Ramadan is here Allah has sent Allah shown us
the Juno and the 11 months when your parents tell you or when the Imam tells you stop committing sin stop listening to music, stop drinking alcohol, stop taking drugs, stop swearing stop having bad manners, stop doing this stop doing this and and you say I can't do it. It's like an addiction. I can't stop listening to music It's impossible.
Last proven tune this month.
That when you're alone at night, or you're alone in the morning or during the day when you're fasting, no one is watching you and your pocket or when you're walking past the fridge you might see cold water but you're not drinking it anymore. You're not going to take the sweets and eat it even though nobody is there. But while you're not going to eat or drink it because you know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching.
This is inevitable that every single person Muslim has the core.
So if everybody understands that they have taekwon Allah shonas that I told you to stop eating and drinking and you stop like this the day Ramadan started, you stopped eating and drinking. That means that if you wanted to stop any sin for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala regardless if you're alone or with people, you could do it just as you give up eating and drinking for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala Anna so taqwa is automatically built in you. Those individuals are fast, automatically, you've already accepted it, because you're starting to fast know in the next 11 months, if we try to keep toccoa preserved and take this taqwa that is almost given to us. That is
given to us by last Montana as a part of us and carry on to next Ramadan, we will become the closest people to Allah subhanho wa Taala in sha Allah
