00:12:54 --> 00:12:57

InshaAllah, if I can ask everyone to please

00:12:57 --> 00:12:57

stand up.

00:12:58 --> 00:12:59

Everyone please stand up,

00:13:00 --> 00:13:02

and go as far right as possible, please.

00:13:03 --> 00:13:04

Even in the Miles per hour, please stand

00:13:04 --> 00:13:05

up sisters.

00:13:05 --> 00:13:07

Fill up the masala as much as you

00:13:07 --> 00:13:08

can to the right and then please sit

00:13:08 --> 00:13:09

down.

00:13:22 --> 00:13:23

And then the brothers who are out here

00:13:23 --> 00:13:25

in the overflow, you can go into the

00:13:25 --> 00:13:26

masala so that we can make more space

00:13:26 --> 00:13:27

for brothers to come in, inshallah.

00:20:34 --> 00:20:35

Assalamu alaykum everybody.

00:20:38 --> 00:20:40

I wanted to ask insha'Allah since it's a

00:20:40 --> 00:20:41

Sunday and we're expecting, alhamdulillah,

00:20:42 --> 00:20:43

a lot of people to come and celebrate.

00:20:44 --> 00:20:46

If everybody could please do their best insha'Allah

00:20:47 --> 00:20:47

to

00:20:47 --> 00:20:49

make as much space

00:20:49 --> 00:20:50

as possible.

00:20:50 --> 00:20:53

So that means squeeze up, slide up a

00:20:53 --> 00:20:55

few inches. So if everybody in a line

00:20:55 --> 00:20:57

can just slide up 1 or 2 scoots,

00:20:57 --> 00:21:00

insha'Allah, to create another line, that would be

00:21:00 --> 00:21:02

very helpful because we have a lot of

00:21:02 --> 00:21:03

people coming to Alhamdulillah.

00:21:03 --> 00:21:06

We don't want to leave every anybody outside.

00:21:06 --> 00:21:07

It's very hot or it's going to be

00:21:07 --> 00:21:09

hot, Insha'Allah. So I wanna make sure we

00:21:09 --> 00:21:10

get everybody inside. So if everybody could please

00:21:10 --> 00:21:13

do me the favor of scooting up. If

00:21:13 --> 00:21:15

there's any space in front of you, any

00:21:15 --> 00:21:16

lines,

00:21:16 --> 00:21:17

please take that space.

00:21:18 --> 00:21:21

Do not do not leave any gaps because

00:21:21 --> 00:21:22

then people will just not sit there.

00:21:23 --> 00:21:24

Okay?

00:21:25 --> 00:21:26

We'll

00:21:26 --> 00:21:27

continue the Takbirat Insha'Allah.

00:21:28 --> 00:21:31

We're just delaying for about 10 minutes so

00:21:31 --> 00:21:33

that we can accommodate more people who are

00:21:33 --> 00:21:35

coming. There's a lot a lot of people

00:21:35 --> 00:21:36

that are still parking. We don't want them

00:21:36 --> 00:21:38

to miss the prayer. So we're gonna push

00:21:38 --> 00:21:40

it from 9 to 9:10:9:15.

00:21:41 --> 00:21:42

Thank you for your patience.

00:21:52 --> 00:21:54

Are you specifically talking to us?

00:21:56 --> 00:21:57

I was just trying to avoid eye contact.

00:22:13 --> 00:22:14

And we can continue with the Takbirat

00:22:16 --> 00:22:17

until about 9, 10, 9:15.

00:35:46 --> 00:35:47

Yeah. Just continue.

00:37:14 --> 00:37:15

Inshallah,

00:37:15 --> 00:37:18

just a couple of announcements before we get

00:37:18 --> 00:37:18

started.

00:37:19 --> 00:37:20

First and foremost,

00:37:21 --> 00:37:23

we're very pleased to have everyone here, and

00:37:23 --> 00:37:25

we hope pray that, inshallah, it's a blessed

00:37:25 --> 00:37:26

occasion,

00:37:26 --> 00:37:27

with the,

00:37:29 --> 00:37:31

over expected kind of beyond our expectation, the

00:37:31 --> 00:37:34

influx that we've had of people. So inshallah,

00:37:34 --> 00:37:36

we've come up with an exit plan and

00:37:36 --> 00:37:37

exit strategy,

00:37:37 --> 00:37:39

so that people can get out of the

00:37:39 --> 00:37:41

building. Generally speaking, a little bit easier inshallah.

00:37:42 --> 00:37:44

Obviously everyone will have to be patient and

00:37:44 --> 00:37:47

we remind everyone insha'Allah to be patient, to

00:37:47 --> 00:37:47

be happy,

00:37:48 --> 00:37:50

to congratulate one another, to spend time with

00:37:50 --> 00:37:52

each other and just be patient with the

00:37:52 --> 00:37:54

process. But in order to be able to

00:37:54 --> 00:37:57

get out of the building, generally speaking, easily,

00:37:58 --> 00:38:00

what we're asking everyone to do is the

00:38:00 --> 00:38:03

main entrance that's here in the front,

00:38:03 --> 00:38:05

we're requesting that the brothers,

00:38:06 --> 00:38:07

exit out from the main entrance. We have

00:38:07 --> 00:38:09

brothers that are upstairs.

00:38:09 --> 00:38:12

We have brothers here in the overflow and

00:38:12 --> 00:38:14

in the lobby, and then obviously, the brothers

00:38:14 --> 00:38:15

here in the main.

00:38:16 --> 00:38:18

We're asking every all the brothers to exit

00:38:18 --> 00:38:21

out from the main entrance quietly and patiently.

00:38:23 --> 00:38:25

For the sisters, obviously, we have the sisters

00:38:25 --> 00:38:26

here and the sisters and

00:38:26 --> 00:38:29

then the sisters overflow in the entire multipurpose

00:38:29 --> 00:38:30

hall.

00:38:30 --> 00:38:33

We're asking that the sisters exit out

00:38:33 --> 00:38:35

from their right.

00:38:35 --> 00:38:37

If you go back, the sisters in the,

00:38:37 --> 00:38:40

please exit back after the prayer, after the

00:38:40 --> 00:38:44

to the multipurpose hall, and to your right,

00:38:44 --> 00:38:46

on the side of the multipurpose hall, there

00:38:46 --> 00:38:48

are multiple exits, and the sisters will be

00:38:48 --> 00:38:51

exiting out from there. You will see volunteers

00:38:51 --> 00:38:53

standing here on the left side of you,

00:38:54 --> 00:38:56

directing you to go towards your right.

00:38:57 --> 00:38:59

Please just follow those directions, it'll help

00:38:59 --> 00:39:01

create kind of like a little bit of

00:39:01 --> 00:39:02

better flow of traffic.

00:39:03 --> 00:39:05

So again, the brothers, after the exit out

00:39:05 --> 00:39:07

from the main entrance, the sisters please exit

00:39:07 --> 00:39:10

out from the multipurpose hall, and that'll help

00:39:10 --> 00:39:12

us at least give a little bit more

00:39:12 --> 00:39:13

order inshallah to things.

00:39:14 --> 00:39:15

Now before we get started,

00:39:16 --> 00:39:17

I'm going to explain as

00:39:18 --> 00:39:21

had mentioned, we obviously delayed the prayer to

00:39:21 --> 00:39:22

accommodate everybody,

00:39:23 --> 00:39:23

So

00:39:24 --> 00:39:25

we're gonna go ahead and get started now.

00:39:25 --> 00:39:27

Before we get started, I'm going to very

00:39:27 --> 00:39:29

briefly explain the procedure of

00:39:31 --> 00:39:34

is 2 rakas, 2 rakas, 2 units.

00:39:35 --> 00:39:36

And the way

00:39:36 --> 00:39:38

is performed, there's multiple different,

00:39:38 --> 00:39:39

methods

00:39:39 --> 00:39:41

done by the prophet. The way we're going

00:39:41 --> 00:39:44

to be doing it was narrated by

00:39:47 --> 00:39:48

and the way we'll do it is when

00:39:48 --> 00:39:50

we stand up first for the salah,

00:39:51 --> 00:39:53

we will begin with the salah saying

00:39:53 --> 00:39:55

and tying our hands as normal.

00:39:55 --> 00:39:57

After that, I will say 3 long

00:40:01 --> 00:40:03

extra for which you want to raise your

00:40:03 --> 00:40:05

hands and release them to your side, 3

00:40:05 --> 00:40:06

times.

00:40:06 --> 00:40:09

After the 3rd time, I will then tie

00:40:09 --> 00:40:11

my hands. Everyone should tie their hands, and

00:40:11 --> 00:40:13

then we'll have the recitation of the surahs.

00:40:13 --> 00:40:14

We'll go into and

00:40:15 --> 00:40:17

finish the rakah as usual. When we stand

00:40:17 --> 00:40:18

up for the second,

00:40:19 --> 00:40:21

we will have the recitation of the Suras.

00:40:21 --> 00:40:23

After that, before going into

00:40:24 --> 00:40:25

we will have 3

00:40:26 --> 00:40:26

extra long

00:40:27 --> 00:40:28

for which you will raise your hands and

00:40:28 --> 00:40:31

release your hands. And after the third one,

00:40:31 --> 00:40:32

we will then say

00:40:32 --> 00:40:34

and go into and we'll finish the

00:40:35 --> 00:40:36

as normal.

00:40:36 --> 00:40:38

That is the procedure and that is the

00:40:38 --> 00:40:38

process.

00:40:38 --> 00:40:41

After the salah is done, remember there is

00:40:41 --> 00:40:43

a as well. There is a sermon. So

00:40:43 --> 00:40:44

please remain seated.

00:40:45 --> 00:40:47

Try to remain quiet and listen attentively.

00:40:48 --> 00:40:50

As we always say every Eid, our promise

00:40:50 --> 00:40:52

to you is that the will be short

00:40:52 --> 00:40:52

and sweet.

00:40:53 --> 00:40:55

We won't prolong it too much,

00:40:56 --> 00:40:58

and there will be 2 parts to the

00:40:58 --> 00:41:00

as usual. I will be saying

00:41:00 --> 00:41:01

the and

00:41:05 --> 00:41:07

the He would say the and the do

00:41:07 --> 00:41:09

not recite along with me. Just listen carefully

00:41:09 --> 00:41:12

and attentively. And after the is over, then

00:41:13 --> 00:41:15

will congratulate everyone, and we will start

00:41:16 --> 00:41:18

to proceed with inshallah, the festivities.

00:41:18 --> 00:41:20

So if I can have everyone stand up,

00:41:20 --> 00:41:22

there is no adhan, no for.

00:41:23 --> 00:41:25

If everyone can stand up

00:41:25 --> 00:41:27

and straighten the rows.

00:41:28 --> 00:41:31

Fill the gaps, straighten the rows.

00:41:46 --> 00:41:48

Yeah. So it's a long it's a long

00:41:48 --> 00:41:49

press to turn it on. Okay.

00:41:50 --> 00:41:51

Alrighty. Great.

00:42:22 --> 00:42:24

Straighten the roads. Fill in the gaps.

00:42:28 --> 00:42:30

If you see any empty spots, please fill

00:42:30 --> 00:42:33

them up. Direct anyone to any empty spots

00:42:33 --> 00:42:35

that you see open. On the sister side

00:42:35 --> 00:42:37

as well, please try to come together, fill

00:42:37 --> 00:42:40

in any gaps. That way, it'll accommodate more

00:42:40 --> 00:42:40

people.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:00

Alon.

00:47:11 --> 00:47:11

Allah.

00:50:28 --> 00:50:29

Alhamdulillah,

00:50:30 --> 00:50:31

it is from the blessing and the mercy

00:50:31 --> 00:50:33

of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala that we are

00:50:33 --> 00:50:34

gathered here today

00:50:34 --> 00:50:36

at this very

00:50:36 --> 00:50:39

both joyous and sacred occasion

00:50:40 --> 00:50:42

to celebrate the occasion of Eid ul Adha.

00:50:43 --> 00:50:44

We are in the month of Dhul Hijjah,

00:50:45 --> 00:50:47

one of the sacred months of the year,

00:50:47 --> 00:50:50

in the blessed 10 days of Dhul Hijjah,

00:50:50 --> 00:50:53

which were described by the prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:50:53 --> 00:50:54

wasallam as the best of days.

00:50:55 --> 00:50:57

And we are gathered here today on the

00:50:57 --> 00:50:59

day that is also known as Yomun Nahr,

00:50:59 --> 00:51:00

the day of sacrifice.

00:51:01 --> 00:51:02

That the hujaj,

00:51:02 --> 00:51:05

the people performing Hajj today, are performing the

00:51:05 --> 00:51:08

sacrifice and even those of us at home

00:51:08 --> 00:51:10

are offering the udkhiyah and the sacrifice.

00:51:10 --> 00:51:12

Anyone who is of financial capability

00:51:13 --> 00:51:14

has the financial ability

00:51:15 --> 00:51:17

to be able to offer a sacrifice, whether

00:51:17 --> 00:51:19

it be physically, in person themselves, or be

00:51:19 --> 00:51:21

able to sponsor a sacrifice,

00:51:21 --> 00:51:23

please remember to do so.

00:51:23 --> 00:51:25

Try to take care of that immediately

00:51:26 --> 00:51:28

as we conclude the prayer and we step

00:51:28 --> 00:51:30

out of here. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam

00:51:30 --> 00:51:31

who was rahmatullillahalamin,

00:51:32 --> 00:51:35

he was so merciful and so kind and

00:51:35 --> 00:51:37

so gracious and so generous. But the prophet

00:51:38 --> 00:51:41

spoke very strictly about this issue that

00:51:44 --> 00:51:46

That's somebody who has the ability

00:51:47 --> 00:51:49

to offer the sacrifice. They can afford to

00:51:49 --> 00:51:51

sponsor a sacrifice

00:51:51 --> 00:51:53

and then they do not do so out

00:51:53 --> 00:51:53

of negligence.

00:51:56 --> 00:51:57

The Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam said then

00:51:57 --> 00:51:59

that person should not have bothered to come

00:51:59 --> 00:52:00

pray with us.

00:52:01 --> 00:52:03

So please try to remember to take care

00:52:03 --> 00:52:05

of that sacrifice. It is not just a

00:52:05 --> 00:52:06

simple

00:52:06 --> 00:52:09

ritual or it is not just simply some

00:52:09 --> 00:52:10

cultural practice.

00:52:10 --> 00:52:11

It is an obligation

00:52:12 --> 00:52:14

and it is a requirement of our religion.

00:52:14 --> 00:52:16

Now after that particular reminder,

00:52:19 --> 00:52:21

the occasion of Dhul Hijjah and the Hajj

00:52:21 --> 00:52:23

and Eidul Adha and the sacrifice

00:52:24 --> 00:52:24

is

00:52:25 --> 00:52:27

all a It involves a celebration

00:52:28 --> 00:52:30

of the legacy of Ibrahim

00:52:31 --> 00:52:33

and to commemorate his and his family's

00:52:34 --> 00:52:34

remarkable

00:52:34 --> 00:52:35

sacrifices

00:52:35 --> 00:52:37

that are spoken about in the Quran.

00:52:38 --> 00:52:40

Even the companions asked the Prophet

00:52:40 --> 00:52:43

that, O Messenger of Allah, You Rasul Allah,

00:52:43 --> 00:52:43

Mahathiyalabaahi,

00:52:44 --> 00:52:46

why do we offer these sacrifices?

00:52:46 --> 00:52:47

And he said,

00:52:48 --> 00:52:50

Ibrahim, this is the way and the tradition

00:52:50 --> 00:52:52

and the legacy of your forefather Ibrahim alaihis

00:52:52 --> 00:52:56

salam. And so while we are here today

00:52:56 --> 00:52:58

it's very important that we remember back and

00:52:58 --> 00:53:00

reflect back onto

00:53:00 --> 00:53:02

the life and the sacrifices of Ibrahim alaihis

00:53:02 --> 00:53:05

salam and his remarkable family so that we

00:53:05 --> 00:53:06

can draw inspiration

00:53:06 --> 00:53:09

from it. And I wanted to share one

00:53:09 --> 00:53:10

particular dua,

00:53:11 --> 00:53:13

one place in the Quran where Allah subhanahu

00:53:13 --> 00:53:16

wa ta'ala tells us that after Ibrahim alaihi

00:53:16 --> 00:53:17

wasallam had sacrificed

00:53:17 --> 00:53:21

so much, after his family had sacrificed so

00:53:21 --> 00:53:22

much, he was commanded

00:53:23 --> 00:53:25

to stand for his faith in Allah subhanahu

00:53:25 --> 00:53:27

wa ta'ala even though they threatened him with

00:53:27 --> 00:53:29

death and tried to throw him and burn

00:53:29 --> 00:53:31

him in a fire, but Allah protected him

00:53:31 --> 00:53:34

and saved him. They Allah commanded Ibrahim alayhis

00:53:34 --> 00:53:36

salam to leave his family

00:53:38 --> 00:53:40

to leave his family in a valley where

00:53:40 --> 00:53:42

nothing was growing and no one lived

00:53:43 --> 00:53:46

and they all complied and fulfilled that commandment.

00:53:46 --> 00:53:48

Then Allah commanded Ibrahim

00:53:49 --> 00:53:51

to sacrifice his own son, Isma'ilah

00:53:52 --> 00:53:53

And again, Ibrahim

00:53:54 --> 00:53:56

and his family, they complied and they fulfilled

00:53:56 --> 00:53:57

the commandment.

00:53:57 --> 00:54:00

Time and time again Allah tested Ibrahim and

00:54:00 --> 00:54:01

his family

00:54:01 --> 00:54:04

and they complied and they followed through every

00:54:04 --> 00:54:05

single time.

00:54:09 --> 00:54:11

That your Lord, Ibrahim's

00:54:11 --> 00:54:15

Lord tested him in numerous different ways and

00:54:15 --> 00:54:17

Ibrahim and his family fulfilled all of those

00:54:17 --> 00:54:18

tests.

00:54:18 --> 00:54:19

So

00:54:19 --> 00:54:21

at the end of all of it,

00:54:22 --> 00:54:23

what was the dua of Ibrahim

00:54:24 --> 00:54:27

We know many people were fasting yesterday and

00:54:27 --> 00:54:27

we know

00:54:28 --> 00:54:30

that after you fast all day long and

00:54:30 --> 00:54:32

you endure the hunger and the thirst and

00:54:32 --> 00:54:34

the exhaustion and the fatigue all day long,

00:54:34 --> 00:54:36

your du'as are accepted at iftar time.

00:54:37 --> 00:54:38

So Ibrahim

00:54:38 --> 00:54:41

after all these sacrifices he's making dua.

00:54:42 --> 00:54:43

Now what is he praying for? What's he

00:54:43 --> 00:54:45

asking for? And Allah tells us.

00:54:46 --> 00:54:46

He says,

00:54:51 --> 00:54:52

He says, O Allah make me someone

00:54:53 --> 00:54:55

who will always be punctual

00:54:56 --> 00:54:58

and regular with my prayer.

00:54:59 --> 00:55:00

That's his du'a.

00:55:01 --> 00:55:03

That O Allah I have sacrificed maybe more

00:55:03 --> 00:55:05

than anyone before me.

00:55:06 --> 00:55:07

And up until the Prophet

00:55:08 --> 00:55:10

nobody will ever sacrifice that much.

00:55:11 --> 00:55:14

And so now any dua and every dua

00:55:14 --> 00:55:16

He can make right now will be answered,

00:55:17 --> 00:55:17

will be fulfilled.

00:55:18 --> 00:55:20

And what he asks for is,

00:55:21 --> 00:55:21

O Allah,

00:55:22 --> 00:55:23

never

00:55:24 --> 00:55:26

take away the ability to pray.

00:55:27 --> 00:55:29

Never remove from me the ability to be

00:55:29 --> 00:55:30

able to worship you.

00:55:31 --> 00:55:33

Grant me the ability to be someone who

00:55:33 --> 00:55:36

is regular and consistent with my salah, with

00:55:36 --> 00:55:37

my worship, with my

00:55:37 --> 00:55:38

prayer.

00:55:39 --> 00:55:41

Because he knows and he understands that prayer

00:55:41 --> 00:55:44

isn't just again a ritual or a duty

00:55:44 --> 00:55:46

or a task or just a responsibility.

00:55:47 --> 00:55:49

It is all those things. But it is

00:55:49 --> 00:55:52

our connection to Allah. It is our source

00:55:52 --> 00:55:54

of peace and tranquility and serenity in this

00:55:54 --> 00:55:56

life. It is the way for us to

00:55:56 --> 00:55:59

be able to live a beautiful, meaningful life

00:55:59 --> 00:56:01

and be able to achieve the eternal success

00:56:01 --> 00:56:02

of the hereafter.

00:56:03 --> 00:56:03

Pray.

00:56:04 --> 00:56:06

And we immediately get an opportunity to live

00:56:06 --> 00:56:08

by this advice today.

00:56:08 --> 00:56:10

Because today of all days,

00:56:10 --> 00:56:12

we're going to be very distracted.

00:56:13 --> 00:56:15

We're going to be completely preoccupied. We're gonna

00:56:15 --> 00:56:17

be running from one place to the other,

00:56:17 --> 00:56:19

one home to another, one celebration to another.

00:56:21 --> 00:56:22

And we have to remember to pray in

00:56:22 --> 00:56:23

between there.

00:56:23 --> 00:56:26

That's the fulfillment of the legacy of Ibrahim

00:56:26 --> 00:56:27

And then he says,

00:56:28 --> 00:56:29

And for my children.

00:56:30 --> 00:56:33

His main dua is, O Allah make my

00:56:33 --> 00:56:35

children people who will worship you.

00:56:36 --> 00:56:38

We worry about so many things and rightfully

00:56:38 --> 00:56:39

so as parents.

00:56:40 --> 00:56:43

We worry about their education and their careers

00:56:43 --> 00:56:45

and their jobs and their lifestyles.

00:56:45 --> 00:56:47

Those are not bad things.

00:56:47 --> 00:56:49

But all of that means nothing if they

00:56:49 --> 00:56:51

don't have a relationship with Allah.

00:56:52 --> 00:56:54

And if they have a relationship with Allah

00:56:54 --> 00:56:56

and then they struggle through everything else, may

00:56:56 --> 00:56:58

Allah protect all of our children. But if

00:56:58 --> 00:56:59

they have a relationship with Allah

00:57:00 --> 00:57:02

and maybe nothing else, God forbid,

00:57:03 --> 00:57:05

their life will have meant something.

00:57:06 --> 00:57:07

We've been watching

00:57:08 --> 00:57:09

for the last 8 months,

00:57:11 --> 00:57:13

9 months, our brother and sisters in Gaza

00:57:13 --> 00:57:14

getting massacred.

00:57:16 --> 00:57:18

But it's so remarkable and powerful that you

00:57:18 --> 00:57:20

know their lives meant something.

00:57:21 --> 00:57:23

Because even in the moments where they're dying

00:57:23 --> 00:57:25

and they're holding their loved ones in their

00:57:26 --> 00:57:27

arms,

00:57:27 --> 00:57:28

they're saying,

00:57:30 --> 00:57:31

Allah is all I need.

00:57:32 --> 00:57:32

They're

00:57:34 --> 00:57:34

saying,

00:57:35 --> 00:57:37

They're remembering Allah.

00:57:37 --> 00:57:39

And that's how their lives mean something.

00:57:41 --> 00:57:42

So he's making this dua,

00:57:44 --> 00:57:46

He says, O Allah answer my prayers.

00:57:48 --> 00:57:50

Our Lord, please forgive me.

00:57:51 --> 00:57:54

Number 2, he's asking for forgiveness because none

00:57:54 --> 00:57:55

of us are perfect.

00:57:55 --> 00:57:57

The Prophet salallahu alaihi wasalam confirmed this for

00:57:57 --> 00:57:59

us a long time ago.

00:58:01 --> 00:58:02

Every human being

00:58:02 --> 00:58:04

makes mistakes,

00:58:04 --> 00:58:04

period.

00:58:06 --> 00:58:07

Factual statement.

00:58:08 --> 00:58:11

He's not guessing, he's not suggesting, he's informing

00:58:11 --> 00:58:12

us.

00:58:13 --> 00:58:15

Every human being makes mistakes.

00:58:15 --> 00:58:18

The prophets were protected by Allah but aside

00:58:18 --> 00:58:20

from the prophets, all the rest of us

00:58:20 --> 00:58:22

will make mistakes. It's not a question of

00:58:22 --> 00:58:23

if, it's a question of when.

00:58:25 --> 00:58:27

But the Prophet salallahu alaihi wasalam said,

00:58:28 --> 00:58:30

The best of the people who make mistakes

00:58:30 --> 00:58:32

are the ones who turn back and repent

00:58:32 --> 00:58:33

to Allah.

00:58:34 --> 00:58:36

So today, we ask Allah to forgive us.

00:58:36 --> 00:58:37

Say amen.

00:58:37 --> 00:58:39

We ask Allah to forgive us. We ask

00:58:39 --> 00:58:42

Allah to forgive us. We repent to Allah.

00:58:43 --> 00:58:45

It doesn't it doesn't occur to us sometimes.

00:58:45 --> 00:58:46

It's a day of celebration

00:58:47 --> 00:58:48

And it is.

00:58:49 --> 00:58:50

And we will hug one another and we

00:58:50 --> 00:58:53

will eat food and we will drink, you

00:58:53 --> 00:58:53

know,

00:58:54 --> 00:58:56

coffee and we'll have a good time.

00:58:56 --> 00:58:59

It doesn't occur to us. But these happy

00:58:59 --> 00:58:59

moments

00:59:00 --> 00:59:02

are exactly the moments when we ask Allah

00:59:02 --> 00:59:04

for forgiveness. So we again say, O Allah

00:59:04 --> 00:59:05

please forgive us.

00:59:06 --> 00:59:07

And

00:59:08 --> 00:59:10

oh Allah forgive our family members.

00:59:11 --> 00:59:13

That is the best gift that we can

00:59:13 --> 00:59:15

give to family. We always wonder.

00:59:16 --> 00:59:18

What can we do for our parents?

00:59:19 --> 00:59:21

What can we do for our family members

00:59:21 --> 00:59:24

who have who have done such favors upon

00:59:24 --> 00:59:26

us? We owe them so much.

00:59:27 --> 00:59:28

What can I do for them? No gesture

00:59:28 --> 00:59:30

ever seems like it's enough.

00:59:30 --> 00:59:33

Well because we're not doing the ultimate,

00:59:33 --> 00:59:36

You know, we're not showing our appreciation for

00:59:36 --> 00:59:38

our loved ones in the ultimate way. And

00:59:38 --> 00:59:41

that is that right now when we sit

00:59:41 --> 00:59:43

here and in our heart we make a

00:59:43 --> 00:59:45

dua in the pause between the khutba, make

00:59:45 --> 00:59:47

dua for your loved ones, make dua for

00:59:47 --> 00:59:49

your family members, make dua that Allah forgives

00:59:49 --> 00:59:51

you and Allah forgives all of them. Say,

00:59:52 --> 00:59:52

And that

00:59:53 --> 00:59:55

Allah grants all of us jannah in paradise.

00:59:55 --> 00:59:57

And that Allah grants us the companionship of

00:59:57 --> 00:59:58

the Prophet Ibrahim

00:59:59 --> 00:59:59

in paradise.

01:00:00 --> 01:00:02

Ameen, make du'a for your loved ones, forgiveness

01:00:02 --> 01:00:04

for us, forgiveness for our families.

01:00:07 --> 01:00:09

And on this day, in the best of

01:00:09 --> 01:00:11

our moments, in the happiest of our occasions,

01:00:11 --> 01:00:13

in the most beautiful of our duas,

01:00:14 --> 01:00:17

we never forget our brothers and sisters, the

01:00:17 --> 01:00:18

ummah of the Prophet

01:00:20 --> 01:00:21

We are like 1 body.

01:00:22 --> 01:00:24

When a part of the body aches, the

01:00:24 --> 01:00:26

whole body suffers and feels it.

01:00:27 --> 01:00:29

And so even on this day, even in

01:00:29 --> 01:00:31

between the invitations and the open houses,

01:00:31 --> 01:00:32

even in

01:00:33 --> 01:00:35

between eating food and enjoying ourselves and greeting

01:00:35 --> 01:00:37

one another and laughing and merriment,

01:00:38 --> 01:00:40

we will not forget to make du'a for

01:00:40 --> 01:00:41

the imam of the Prophet

01:00:41 --> 01:00:43

We remind ourselves here and we will remember

01:00:43 --> 01:00:45

throughout the day and we will continue to

01:00:45 --> 01:00:47

remember every single day. May Allah subhanahu wa

01:00:47 --> 01:00:49

ta'ala grant victory to our brothers and sisters

01:00:49 --> 01:00:52

in ghazah. May Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala grant

01:00:52 --> 01:00:54

them freedom. May Allah grant them dignity. May

01:00:54 --> 01:00:56

Allah grant them peace. May Allah grant them

01:00:56 --> 01:00:57

tranquility. And may Allah

01:00:58 --> 01:00:58

bestow

01:00:59 --> 01:01:00

peace and tranquility

01:01:00 --> 01:01:03

upon all the believers all throughout the world.

01:01:07 --> 01:01:08

And that's just a part of being a

01:01:08 --> 01:01:09

believer.

01:01:10 --> 01:01:12

Ibrahim alayhis salaam remembers that oh Allah, we'll

01:01:12 --> 01:01:15

need your forgiveness more than ever on the

01:01:15 --> 01:01:16

day of resurrection.

01:01:17 --> 01:01:19

We've created a culture

01:01:20 --> 01:01:21

or we live in a culture.

01:01:22 --> 01:01:24

Today. We're bringing up the day of judgment

01:01:24 --> 01:01:26

to somehow negativity.

01:01:27 --> 01:01:29

It's morbidity. Why would you do that? Why

01:01:29 --> 01:01:30

would you ruin the moment?

01:01:31 --> 01:01:33

Why would you put a cloud over this

01:01:33 --> 01:01:34

beautiful moment?

01:01:34 --> 01:01:35

But we're believers.

01:01:37 --> 01:01:38

And it's not a scary thing and it's

01:01:38 --> 01:01:40

not a sad thing. It's a beautiful thing.

01:01:41 --> 01:01:44

Because imagine how beautiful life will be in

01:01:44 --> 01:01:47

Jannah on the Day of Judgment when we

01:01:47 --> 01:01:48

walk up to the fountain of Qathar and

01:01:48 --> 01:01:49

the Prophet

01:01:50 --> 01:01:52

looks at our face and looks into our

01:01:52 --> 01:01:55

eyes and recognizes us and says our name

01:01:55 --> 01:01:56

and then gives us water with His own

01:01:56 --> 01:01:57

hands.

01:01:57 --> 01:02:00

Imagine how beautiful that moment would be. Why

01:02:00 --> 01:02:01

would I not think about that moment every

01:02:01 --> 01:02:04

single day? And so we remember that moment

01:02:04 --> 01:02:05

and we think about that moment and we

01:02:05 --> 01:02:07

say, Oh Allah, allow us to be amongst

01:02:07 --> 01:02:09

the people who will drink water from the

01:02:09 --> 01:02:10

hands of the Prophet shalallahu alaihi wa sallam.

01:02:10 --> 01:02:11

Say,

01:04:07 --> 01:04:08

Everyone,

01:04:08 --> 01:04:11

please remember to congratulate one another, celebrate with

01:04:11 --> 01:04:13

one another, and try to be a little

01:04:13 --> 01:04:16

patient as everyone exits out. The sisters, please

01:04:16 --> 01:04:18

exit to your right from the multipurpose hall,

01:04:18 --> 01:04:20

and the brothers will be exiting from your

01:04:20 --> 01:04:22

left from the main entrance. Eid Mubarak, everyone.
