In this khutbah Shaykh Faraz begins by speaking about the great gifts the month of Ramadan has. This entire life is a gift. Allah chose to create mankind and treat them on the basis of mercy. Everything about this life is mercy. Shaykh Faraz goes on to explain what drove the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) to be upon great character, as he was described in the Qur’an. The Prophet’s (peace and blessings be upon him) yearning for Allah, love of Allah, fear of Allah, and deep gratitude to Allah are what made his character greater. He (peace and blessings be upon him) showed excellence in slavehood to Allah. Everything about the sunna is beauty, virtue, and excellence. The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) didn’t take anything for granted. Everything he did was an expression of thankfulness. Shaykh Faraz calls everyone to fast out of gratitude. Shaykh Faraz ends by showing the believers how to express one’s gratitude, especially in the month of Ramadan.
