May the month of Ramadan be blessed. We reached beautiful months. The last of the 3 Holy Months, the month of Ramadan. We reached this holy month. Allah makes us reach to many Ramadans inshaAllah. With Islam’s honor and glory, with Allah’s beloved servants, together with Mahdi alaihi s-salam we reach InshaAllah. May the corruption in this world end inshaAllah. Only if Mahdi alaihi s-salam comes will people find peace.
The month of Ramadan is the sultan of all months. Allah Azza wa Jalla, our Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam) says in his hadith: “The beginning is a blessing, the middle is forgiveness, the end is to be free from hell.” For this reason it is the sultan of the months. It is a beautiful month, a month of worshiping. We also practice in other months – Rajab, Sha’ban but we do not pray fully. But in Ramadan we worship all day long. During whole day you are worshiping, you are fasting. Every minute, every second of it is written as a good deed for you by Allah Almighty. Allah gives its reward it is said. When you do a good deed, you are given 10 up to 700 good deeds by Allah Azza wa Jalla.
But fasting, He says “It belongs to Me, I give it.” Nobody can understand His gifts, grants blessings, benefits. People, when you speak about fasting with mindless people, they think it is a very difficult, hard worshiping. Shaitan shows it like that to people. “Afdalu l-amal ashaqquha” says our Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam). The best good deed, good action, is the hardest one. Fasting is also difficult, but it is a good worship. It is not a worship,that cannot be practiced. Everyone can easily make it except the ill people, travellers. Travellers may also fast if they want to but if it is too difficult, there is a permission not to. He can fast later. But if somebody just sitting saying “I cannot fast, I can not carry it.” – a healthy person does not have any excuse. Anyone can fast, as we said, except the sick people.
Allah created human beings, He knows what we can do, what we are able to do. Allah knows. He doesn’t tell you to put wings and fly. You cannot do that. You can fast. You can do any kind of worship. For this reason you must fast. The reward you get in return is so big that you will wish the whole year was Ramadan. That much reward, that much benefit is given. Not only your physical body but also your soul wants food. Fasting is its food. The relief you feel when you break your fast, nobody can feel that relief and comfort. This is the hadith of our Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam), there are two joyful moments for the fasting person – when he breaks the fast it is a beautiful moment. More beautiful than that is when he reaches Allah Azza wa Jalla. Because the gifts, the grants, that He will be giving will make him much happier. But when he breaks the fast or while he is fasting Allah Azza wa Jalla gives that beauty.
Ramadan mubarak for all of you. Alhamdulillah, we reached Ramadan. Allah make it to be for us many Ramadans also with nice peace and beautiful world and it only can be with Sayyidi l-Mahdi (alayhi salam) because people now they make it, create system who are not following Allah’s Order and it is satanic system it against Allah Order and Prophet’s teaching. Only with Sayyidi l-Mahdi will be inshallah. We hope inshallah, every time to be next Ramadan or next Eid al Adha to Mahdi (as) to come Inshallah.
Ramadan it is, Shahru Ramadan Allah Azza wa Jalla saying, calling this month. It is the month of worshipping There is three months also holy, they are coming together – Rajab, Sha’ban, Ramadan. But in Rajab, Sha’ban only sometimes you can fast. Not many people fasting and also not special praying but in Ramadan you are more nearly 24 hours worshiping, you are worshipping in daytime, nighttime also continuing, is good worshipping. You wake up for Sahur, Sahur also worshipping. Even Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam), he say to people you must wake up for Sahur, Sahur baraka meaning it is gift. Who are waking up for Sahur, they get gift from Allah to be everything more baraka meaning.
Even you see it is small thing but it is big thing. When Allah give baraka for something, very few thing it become enough for everybody, this is baraka. Like this it is 24 hours, one month, we are worshipping Alhamdulillah. For this, he said, it is the best month among 12 months, Ramadan. And it is Allah’s gift for the Ummat of Muhammad (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam). Because everything Allah reward. If you do something for ten times until seven hundred times. But, for Ramadan He said, “I am giving from My Generosity. Nobody, I don’t want to tell anybody what I give.” Allah, He is Generous and He will give from His endless Treasure inshallah. And Ramadan, first [1/3] of Ramadan, hadith, Rahma, Mercy it is Mercy. In middle, forgive, He is forgiving His people. Forgiveness for Muslims who fasting. And the end of Ramadan, Allah make you free from hell. You are not be in hell anymore. You’re in safety here and Hereafter and we are praising and loving the month of Ramadan because Allah make it in our heart and we are happy with this. And He give worshipping to be fasting.
Many people, shaytan make this fasting look like for them horrible, terrible. Very difficult to do it. It is not like this. Allah not ordering anything because He is the Creator, He create us, He know what we can do what we cannot do. And He said who are in health and not traveling they can fast but who are not fast, ill people. He give permission for them not to fasting but who was in health and he is staying not traveling, ordering for them to be fasting. And reward them, He said, for fasting people, there is two things nobody else have it. First of this, when you are break fast in Maghrib it is happiness, nobody know it except fasting people. Other one, for Akhira, when he will meet divine Presence and He will give him from endless Gift, he will be most happy one. And it is from happiness for Maghrib time maybe very small part from this Gift. Nobody in this world can have it except who are fasting and when breaking fast Maghrib time Allah show them. And it is benefit for body, body, physical body also. Very good for body and for spiritual, more and more good.
We must happy because it is for all of Muslim can do it. Poor or rich or middle -everybody can do it this worship because there is like Hajj or Zakat, maybe poor people cannot do it but this, it is for everybody. And it is very nice, you cannot tell people how it is nice. And people, they are ignorant. Many of them, they are afraid from fasting and we cannot do it. No, you can do, because Allah, He is ordering you and when you are not doing, coming on you sadness, darkness, illness. So, “sumu tasuhu”, Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam) he say, “Fast you be healthy” healthy meaning physical and spiritual inshallah
