It is only if something is the most important event in the year or month in the year that we will be speaking in advance regarding the preparation of the month of Ramadan.
To prepare for the month of Ramadan, you need to start off by thinking about what it is, how blessed the month is.
Happiness and contentment is achieved primarily by understanding Allah’s plan. By understanding, you have to worship Allah alone. You have to build a relationship with the one whom you are going to go back to one day helplessly. Helplessly. I’m going to go back to Allah.
That’s what I want to say today, that your preparation for Ramadan is a commitment from now to say, I’ve started it.
Today, for some petty reasons, your father could tell you divorce your wife. What is right for you to do?
You need to ask yourself, is my father right or is my wife right?
Amazing verse in the Quran;
O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allāh, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allāh is more worthy of both.1 So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allāh is ever, of what you do, Aware. Quran- 4:135
Ikhlas (Sincerity) is a cause of erasing sins, even the Most Major of them. Ikhlas (Sincerity) melts away a lifetime’s worth of sins.
Ikhlas (Sincerity) is our savior in the hereafter, when you will hear the announcement, Allah said on the Day of Judgment, this day the truthfulness of the truthful ones will be benefited by it. That is the day the people of Ikhlas (Sincerity) will shine.
Don’t give up. Ikhlas (Sincerity) isn’t about removing insincerity from your heart forever and eliminating it. It’s about managing it and realizing it’s an ongoing struggle. It’s a battle that in of itself is a sign of sincerity that you’re scared of it.
Satan’s aim is to make you an indiscipline person, one who follows his own whims and fancies and desires. a person who is trapped by Satan would not want to follow any rules. He wants to fulfill what is known as my wish, my whims, my fancies, what I desire.
Religion comes in and Allah Almighty, the Maker, what has He told us? The rules and regulations are there to discipline you, to make you a person who will succeed without regret, a person who does not just have a moment of joy followed by a lifetime of regret, but rather a person who understands that I need to follow rules and regulations in a way that my contentment is extended, not just throughout my little life on this earth, but beyond going into the hereafter.
What about the admiration of the One Who created the universe..
Who created you, who fashioned you, who gave you your eyes?
Whenever we see something that’s contingent or reliant on something that has to assemble or fashion it in a certain way.
So, for example, the universe is contingent, it’s reliant upon helium and hydrogen and all of the other things that make the universe. Whatever is reliant on something cannot be the explanation for itself, but requires an explanation for its existence.
And what you can’t have is a series of material explanations infinitely going in the past because you can never traverse an infinite number of steps to reach this step; we’re talking today here in Speaker’s Corner.
Question: why is my heartbroken and how can you heal from my heartbreak or from the diseases of the heart over time
Remember, the One Who heals the heart is none other than the One Who made it. In fact, nobody, nothing, whether it is material or in the form of people, can ever heal your heart. The only one that will heal your heart is its Maker.
So the more you attach with your Maker, the better your heart shall be, the stronger it will be.
It will be healed not only from heartbreak, but from the diseases of the heart.
Indeed, Those who believe their hearts are comforted by the remembrance of Allah.
