Don’t Mess Up Your Attained Ramadan Reward On Eid Day | Mufti Menk And Dr. Omar Suleiman

Who deserves to have Eid? It’s only those who took the month of Ramadan seriously, Allah says in order that you complete the entire period So Allah gives you the day of Eid because He’s guided you. If you have followed them, you deserve a day of Eid.

If you did not respect the month of Ramadan, you don’t deserve a day of Eid. Make sure you don’t mess up the reward that you’ve attained throughout the month of Ramadan.

When you’re dressed appropriately, it doesn’t mean here is the day of eid, I remove my appropriate dress. I covered up so nicely. In Islam, clothing is there to cover. in other cultures, sometimes clothing is there to reveal. Ask yourself, am I clothing in order to cover or my clothing in order to show and reveal.

Allah says, when Ramadan ends, don’t go back to the old you That was before Ramadan, but rather maintain that goodness in that balance and understand I need to improve myself. I must do something better than I did before Ramadan, after Ramadan.

We thank Allah by what He has given to us, by what He has done for us, by Ebadh / by fasting. But celebration is very unique in Islam; the idea of Eid is very unique in Islam. Our two Eids in Islam is that they both come after worship, they both come after sacrifice.

When you sacrifice for Allah (swt), then you have the joy of reaping the acceptance of Allah (swt), the reward in that sense in this life, and you have the greater joy of seeing the reward of it in the next life.

Our Eids mark our own efforts; they come after our own efforts and then depending on the mercy of Allah (swt), celebrating the mercy of Allah (swt).

Allah says, call Me, I will answer you, call Me, I will answer you. The Prophet (pbuh) said call Allah with the certainty in His response.

It’s celebrating the mercy of Allah that ya Allah, you allowed us to worship You.

We celebrate our Eids not in heedlessness, not with disobedience of Allah (swt), We celebrate our Eid with recitation, with celebration, counting on the greater celebration with Allah (swt).

Simple These 3 Things To Uphold The Spirit Of Ramadan After Ramadan | Ustad Asim Khan

You do an Act of worship; does it automatically mean that Allah has accepted it?

Allah says He only accepts from those who are righteous, meaning not only do you have to do the good deed; you have to do it for the right reason. When those two things come together, you’re doing the good deed with the right reason. Then it is accepted by Allah (swt).

In fact, some of the scholars, they say that the tail end of Ramadan is the sign from Allah, whether the whole Ramadan has been accepted.

When you see your life in the Grand scale of the hereafter, you think that you only live for the blink of an eye. Subanallah, In the same way Ramadan comes and goes to teach us that your life will come and go as well. What then are you doing to take advantage of these moments?

Ramadan as a training camp wants that inspires you to be a better version of yourself.

So there are three things that you should continue to carry on after Ramadan

The first one is your connection with the Book of Allah (Swt).

The Second thing: fasting, fastingis an Act of worship not confined to the month of Ramadan. Don’t we know that the prophet (pbuh) used to fast every Monday and Thursday? And he did so because he said, my deeds are presented to Allah on those days, the Angels present our good deeds to Allah (swt), And he said, I want to be in a state of fasting when those deeds are presented.

And the last thing is, what, is your Salah, Salah, Salah, Salah.

If there’s nothing you can do in your life, the last thing should be is my prayer. I cannot let go of that, subhanAllah. It should be the last thing that you ever let go of. Nothing should come between you and your salah.

Are You Feeling The Pain For The Masjid Al-Aqsa! Mohammed Ali | Speakers Corner

Allah (swt) says in the Quran: Verily, the believers are Brothers.

If your brother in Islam is being harmed, if your mother is being harmed, your sister is being harmed, If your child is being harmed, would you stay silent? You wouldn’t stay silent, would you?

Our brothers and sisters in Islam are being harassed by these cowards of the occupation forces.

Allah (swt) says in the Quran; What s wrong with you? Why are you not standing in the way of Allah against those who are oppressing women, children?……

Then Allah (swt) says those who believe stand in the way of Allah and those who disbelieve stand in the way of the devil.

We should spread awareness about this. We should support their own brothers and sisters. If you see anyone talking about this, share it, like it, let other people know.

Now, where are these hypocrites of the media? Whenever a Muslim does something, You hear them speaking about it, now we don’t hear him speaking about what’s happening in Palestine.

The prophet (pbuh) said the true believers are like one body; If a part of the body gets hurt, the rest of the body feels the pain. Are you feeling the pain?

The prophet Muhammed (pbuh) said, None of you will be a true believer unless he loves for his brother while he loves for himself.

You love security for yourself, don’t you? You love to pray in the mosque in peace. You love to eat your meal in iftar, You love to sit down in your house without a bomb coming in your head, don’t you? You love to do that.

So why you don’t love it for your other brothers and sisters as well?

This is an issue of Aqidah / Creed. This is our mosque; Masjid Al-Aqsa. This is not an issue of just Muslims being prosecuted. But it’s also an issue of Creed. Who doesn’t defend Masjid Al-Aqsa today, he will not defend Makkah If something happens. He will not defend Medina, If something happens, there today today, we can see who are the true believers for who are the false believers.

At any given time, Ramadan or out of Ramadan, a believer chooses to be in the right place and always asks Allah to guide him or her to be in the right place at the right time.

Then this evening as the Sun set, we entered into one of the odd nights from among the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Did you know that laylatul qadr could be any night of Ramadan to start with, from the beginning to the end?

But there is a greater likelihood that it is one of the last 10 nights any one of them. So we’re taught take every night seriously, the dua if I were to ask you that would be most loved by Allah on Laylatul Qadr:

o Allah, you love to forgive. You are forgiving, you love to forgive. So forgive me.

Don’t ever let the night pass without having sought the forgiveness of Allah.

Your life is Transforming is changing. You’re feeling like a rejuvenated person. That’s Laylatul Qadr.

So remember that it’s the mercy of Allah, and not only this night, all of the 10 nights of Ramadan.

Allah Gifted Laylatul Qadr To Prophet ﷺ For The Ummah And A Narration Of Catching It | Dr. Omar Suleiman

When we look at the prophet (pbuh) and his relationship with Allah and our blessing and good fortune of being from the Ummah of Rasulullah (pbuh) There are two things that Rasulullah (pbuh) always does on our behalf.

He always advocates for Allah (swt) to lessen our burden and he always advocates for Allah (swt) to increase our blessing.

Imam Hasan al-Basri (rah) tells us about our Messenger (pbuh) anytime Allah gives him, the prophet (pbuh) thinks how does that translate into giving to the ummmah?

The prophet (Pbuh) wanted something for his Ummah. So Allah gave him Laylat-al-Qadr;  Allah (swt) gave him Laylat-al-Qadr as a gift to the Prophet (pbu)’s ummah. The Night of Glory is better than a thousand months.

for some people, laylatul qadr is not even a thousand months. It’s thousands of months. For some people, the Tasbeeh of Ramadan is not even times a thousand. It’s times thousands up toward Allah (swt) decides to reward his servants with and that comes back to each and every single one of us calling out to Allah and Subhanallah you connect that …… better than a thousand months.

 

When And How To Prepare To Catch Best Night Laylatul Qadr During Last 10 Nights Of Ramadan | Mufti Menk

In these 10 nights there is one night; There is more in terms of value than a thousand months, which is 83.33 years. And Allah speaks about the night of decree is better than a thousand months. That’s Allah (swt) speaking about it.

The Prophet (pbuh) says search for the night of Qadr or the night of decree in one of the odd nights from among the last 10 nights of this month of Ramadan.

It is one of the best seasons that you can have. The primary aim is to achieve the forgiveness of Allah.

One might ask, well, which are more blessed; Is it the first 10 days of dhul hijjah or these ones? The first 10 days have the most value from all the days of the year, Right? In terms of a season, those are 10 days in a row. Here, It’s the night that we are being spoken about the last 10 nights.

Imagine, when we meet with Allah, We’re going to be presenting our deeds and it’s for ourselves and Allah is there.

The last 10 nights of Ramadan, Become conscious nof what you’re doing. What you’re saying. Do you read the Quran? Do you fulfill your five daily prayers? Start that this is the preparation of your vehicle for the main day of the race, Right? So my Salah needs to be in order. My dress needs to be in order. My recitation of the Quran needs to be in order. My relationships need to be in order.

Seek the forgiveness of Allah even prior to these 10 days.

There is a beautiful quality that Allah loves; when you forgive others, Allah will forgive you.

What Make Laylatul Qadr Meaningless! Barrier To Your Accepted Dua | Shaykh Omar Suleiman

We know the Hadith of the Messenger (pbuh) that a person comes on the Day of Judgment and they have their prayer. They have their fasting, they have their siam. But the point is, despite all of that, you cursed this person. You backbited this person. You slandered this person, you hit this person, and you denigrated this person.

So respecting Rights of Fellow Humans (Huqooq ul Ibad) the people that you hurt line up and they take your good deeds until you have nothing left. Laylatul Qadr  is better than 1,000 months. 50,000 months of good deeds gone because of the people that you hurt with this.

It’s a warning from the prophet (pbuh); the barriers to our good deeds being accepted or being profitable on the Day of Judgment.

As we’re getting into the last 10, we need to make tawbah from those things that might take away everything from the last 10; your good deeds going to waste because you’re not reforming your akhlaq, you’re not reforming your manners. And so if you want your Ibadat to be accepted, you have to reform your akhlaq.

If you want your Act of worship to be accepted, you have to reform your manners. Laylatul Qadr is the night of Decree. So you want something to happen in the next year? That’s your night. That’s the night that your next year is going to be decreed in the next 10 nights. Your next year is going to be written down.

When you messed up, turn back to Allah and put in the place of your sin a good deed.

The insistences on poor manners make our Ibadat meaningless. You’re insisting on your ways and then you’re insisting Allah answer your supplications. It doesn’t work that way with Allah (swt), and on what basis are you going to be responded to?

Ramadan resolutions mean difficult, difficult, difficult sacrifices. Remove the means that are causing you to constantly fall in the sins over and over and over again. every one of us has to look deep, deep, deep, deep, deep. Because when you show Allah (swt) that you’re going to insist on these ways and you’re not willing to make those sacrifices, which are the barrier between you and your supplication.

Let’s hold ourselves accountable and Let’s make some difficult sacrifices. And that’s how you get your duas answered.

The Special Dua For Laylatul Qadr During The Last Ten Nights Of Ramadan

The last ten nights of Ramadan are filled with Barakah and opportunities to draw near to Allah . Within these final days, Muslims seek that one night that is better than a thousand months, Laylatul-Qadr.

Allah subḥānahu wa ta’āla (glorified and exalted be He) says in the Qur’an: The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. Peace it is until the emergence of dawn. [Qur’an: 97:3-5]

The blessed Laylatul Qadr can be found in any of the last 10 nights of Ramadan, which are the most blessed nights of the year. As such, we should increase our worship and devotion during this period.

Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, said:

I asked the Messenger of Allah: ‘O Messenger of Allah, if I know what night is the night of Qadr, what should I say during it?’ He said: ‘Say: O Allah, You are pardoning and You love to pardon, so pardon me.’ ”

(Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and Tirmidhi).

Let’s us learn and memorise the dua

What To Do When Your Parents Tell You To Divorce Your Spouse | Mufti Menk

In Surah An-Nisa, which is obviously dedicated to the women. One thing that is clear in the Surah; Allah has repeated the issue of Justice several times in the Surah.

Many of us are guilty for not being just when it comes to our women folk; Be it our wives, be it our mothers, our sisters, sometimes our daughters and even our in-laws and so on.

May Allah (swt) grant us an understanding that when we came, we brought nothing. When we are going to leave, we will leave with nothing besides our deeds. So this whole world is actually there for us to do as many good deeds as we can.

Allah will throw into your examination; Women, wives, children, parents, siblings, in-laws, business partners, whoever else. Allah throws them into your test in order to see what do you do?

this is why, when it comes to laws of money, there is no other Act of worship that Allah has mentioned in such great detail than that of the wealth that you leave behind when you die. There are very few minor differences of opinion when it comes to inheritance. There are very few minor differences of opinion when it comes to inheritance.

So I call on you, my brothers and sisters, to learn the rules of inheritance, to learn that the money is not yours. The wealth that you found on Earth belonged to Allah.

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? The answer is, when it comes to who is right, you’ve got to look at what the issue is.

Sometimes you might have to protect your wife from the harm of your own mother, and sometimes you might have to protect your mother from the harm of your own wife.

What’s the point of me failing in the last moments when I’m about to meet with Allah (swt)? And my will is totally upside down, completely unislamic, totally in the opposite direction of the instruction of Allah. And that’s the last thing I needed to do as I left. You’re not going to take your wealth with you.
