alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:03--> 00:00:20

I hope inshallah everyone has enjoyed our prayers and celebrations and I hope inshallah everyone is enjoying the beautiful summer weather that the last month Allah has given to us. I want to make a few announcements as you come in you will see that our use camp has set up

But if they are supply still less before the Joomla is finished, then you can you can support them in sha Allah also there is a toy drive that will be happening

00:00:44--> 00:01:24

in sha Allah, the flyers will be circulated outside this toy drive is not happening here at ID but the details are on the flyer and all proceeds will be going to Islamic Relief, so inshallah I will ask you to support them. I wanted to take a moment today to reflect on this wonderful program that we are having here currently at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, and that is the it Islamic Institute of Toronto summer day camp and youth camp. This year, we are celebrating 25 years of the summer camp. And that's quite

00:01:26--> 00:02:19

that's quite an achievement by the Grace of Allah subhanho wa taala. It was established in 1996. So we are 26 years. The summer camp actually happened just one year after that. And we started with a collaboration with a group called mentors, m e n d o r s, and the main players were brother Ali mommy Bangura sister just means in brother Monique Nasir and sister for Nina bernisa, Nasser and others and it hamdulillah over the years we have grown exponentially. Over the many years we have received a grant an annual grant from Service Canada this year Alhamdulillah we have received a grant to employ 18 students who are in high school, and university or college. And this has been

00:02:19--> 00:03:09

happening for the past many years Alhamdulillah through this program, we have been able to employ hundreds of youth over the years and provide a summer of fun and learning to 1000s of children. So this is quite an achievement. And I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept it. If you have children between the ages of five and 12 and youth between the ages of 13 and 15. Then I encourage you inshallah to register and register early. Our week three, which is coming up next week is already full. There are a few spots available from Week Four to week seven. The camp runs until August the 19th. So inshallah please sign up. We will also be doing a few other things in the summer, which we

00:03:27--> 00:03:50

00:03:52--> 00:04:42

the maintenance of the building air conditioning and other expenses so insha Allah your weekly contribution is important to us and crucial. What I and many others do is we go on the website islam.ca And we set up a recurring donation on Fridays. So hamdulillah on Friday mornings I get an email in my inbox and say you have donated to it. I'm only saying this because I want you to do the same in sha Allah and there is a good feeling to it. You don't have to do anything else. But you set up a recurring donation on Friday for Joomla line collection and insha Allah it happens automatically. So as our brothers are going through the lines, please donate generously. Take the

taco la haka Ducati, wala tamo tuna Illa. We're into mostly moon. I'll praise the due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.

00:10:11--> 00:10:46

Surely, Allah is the one who deserves all the praise. And I bear witness that Allah has one and has no partners. And that Mohammed the son of Abdullah is His servant, his last messenger May Allah always constantly send peace and blessings to Mohammed to his family, his companions and all those who call to his way and establish his sunnah to the Day of Judgment. As to what follows I begin by reminding myself of the eternal importance of Taqwa Allah,

00:10:47--> 00:10:52

the consciousness of Allah, the remembrance of Allah in all that we do.

00:10:54--> 00:10:58

And Allah is One who has power over all things.

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

He is the ultimate judge in all affairs.

00:11:03--> 00:11:19

And we need to remember this in every phase of our life. And Allah has revealed to us in His glorious book or you who believe fear Allah in the way he should be feared and do not die, except as Muslims.

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

Are you who believe

00:11:25--> 00:11:32

Allah subhanaw taala has willed in this year of 14 143 years after the hedgerow

00:11:33--> 00:11:36

that the Hajj has been completed.

00:11:38--> 00:11:42

People are returning to their homes, over a million people

00:11:43--> 00:11:53

establishing the rights that were originally put down and established by Prophet Ibrahim alayhi, Salam

00:11:54--> 00:11:58

1700 years BC

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

and still people today are implementing these important principles and this important lifestyle, sincerity. Struggle.

00:12:13--> 00:12:14

You miletti

00:12:15--> 00:12:19

He was Khalil, Allah, he was the friend of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:12:21--> 00:12:26

And so the hood judge returning to their homes and

00:12:28--> 00:12:41

the ritual of hudge the monastic, the actual implementation on the ground has been completed, but the spirit of the Hodge remains

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

the chapter

00:12:45--> 00:12:51

of the hutch Surah Al Hajj in the Quran, will remain until the day of resurrection.

00:12:53--> 00:12:57

And this chapter begins in a unique fashion.

00:12:59--> 00:13:11

And Allah subhanaw taala revealed to us our bIllahi min ash shaytani regime. Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Yeah, are you had NASA taco Rob bacame. In azelis, Santa Teresa shaitan or them.

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

Allah begins the chapter of the hatch, the gathering of people of all humanity, saying to us and all people,

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

all humanity,

00:13:25--> 00:13:37

reverence your Lord, Fear your Lord, have the consciousness of your Lord. For surely the quaking of the hour, will be a terrible thing.

00:13:39--> 00:13:42

And so, from taqwa,

00:13:43--> 00:13:45

to the day of judgment,

00:13:46--> 00:13:57

and the signs and the symbols that will come, as we move toward the Day of Resurrection in the cell, Salah Tessa, Shea and other team

00:13:58--> 00:14:00

and we see it today in the world.

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

We see humanity with all of our technology,

00:14:06--> 00:14:13

with all of our abilities, some are even looking into space and they want to conquer space.

00:14:14--> 00:14:20

But the reality on the ground is that because of the misuse of the technology,

00:14:21--> 00:14:26

the exploitation of people of innocent people.

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

We have destroyed

00:14:30--> 00:14:33

the very place that ALLAH blessed us with to live

00:14:34--> 00:14:47

and a reaction is coming we are being punished in a sense, the Earth is throwing back at us. And now we see the elements the elements of fire, the element of water,

00:14:48--> 00:14:54

which are so crucial for life, now are coming back upon us.

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

fire and heat, heat waves and control

00:15:00--> 00:15:22

All about heat waves, all records are being broken, leading to forest fires, leading to drought and the water itself is vanishing fresh water to drink, that gives us life is vanishing right in front of our eyes. And so it is a challenge for the whole of humanity.

00:15:23--> 00:15:28

But Muslims in particular because we have been blessed with the final revelation,

00:15:29--> 00:15:39

we have been blessed with the direct communication with Allah subhanaw taala. Our test is even more severe.

00:15:40--> 00:15:45

And so as we leave the rituals of the hutch,

00:15:47--> 00:15:49

the rituals of the eidl out Ha,

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

the spirit should remain.

00:15:54--> 00:16:04

And then looking beyond Ramadan, we need to take the ritual and evolve it into reality from ritual to reality.

00:16:07--> 00:16:08

From mechanical actions,

00:16:10--> 00:16:16

to spirited, intelligent submission to the Creator of the heavens in the earth

00:16:18--> 00:16:35

and that is enshrined in the Quran when Allah subhanaw taala is speaking about the Hajj itself. And speaking about the pilgrimage and the actions Allah told us and CIRTL Hajj, verse 32, that Lika will make you out them sha Allah in the Harmon tuck welcome loop.

00:16:37--> 00:16:50

Allah told us such as his state and whoever holds in honor, the rights of Allah, surely, honor should come truly from the piety of the hearts.

00:16:51--> 00:16:54

So the true rights of the Hajj

00:16:55--> 00:17:09

is from the taqwa it is from the hearts. It is from the individuals. And so the Hajaj and all of us, we need to now look at something higher,

00:17:10--> 00:17:17

something higher than our ritual, the salah that we are doing what do we get from the salaat?

00:17:18--> 00:17:19

The first thing in Ramadan,

00:17:20--> 00:17:30

and now the Hajj itself. What do we embody from these principles given to us by Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam,

00:17:32--> 00:17:41

the external is the actions, but the internal is something we should be carrying with us. And these

00:17:42--> 00:17:46

internal actions will be our Savior

00:17:47--> 00:17:52

in this strange world, which is evolving

00:17:53--> 00:17:54

in such a bizarre way,

00:17:55--> 00:18:05

in the Hajj itself, the essence of the Hajj is Tawheed Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam was an ummah.

00:18:06--> 00:18:14

He was a nation unto himself. And he embodied submission to the Creator of the heavens in the earth.

00:18:15--> 00:18:38

And the Hajj to hood judge and all those who listened and who have gone there if you have made Hodge this will be imprinted in your heart love bake Allah Humala bake love Baker lashari. Kanaka bake in Alhambra, one near Mata laka Well, malt luxury Kolak that will be embedded in your hearts. But what did we say?

00:18:39--> 00:18:44

We said love bake Allah Humala big we said, Oh Allah, I am at your service.

00:18:45--> 00:18:47

I am at your service.

00:18:49--> 00:18:50

You have no partners.

00:18:51--> 00:18:58

You have no associates, all praise and all blessing, belong to you last shall recollect.

00:19:00--> 00:19:01

No partner.

00:19:03--> 00:19:08

It is embedded in our heart, but the practice many will return from the Hajj.

00:19:09--> 00:19:13

But the practice changes. And this is the challenge

00:19:15--> 00:19:34

because Sherk itself comes in many forms. It is not only bowing down to idols, but it is worshiping the graves. It is worshiping created things the mountain worshiping the river, worshiping the sun, worshipping money,

00:19:35--> 00:19:50

which many people are involved in today. And so the real spirit gives us that feeling that we will not submit to anything. We do not put anything of the material world above the Creator of the heavens in the earth.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

We are at service we are at your service. Oh Allah. We will continue this Tawheed for the rest of our lives.

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

Unity

00:20:03--> 00:20:07

has brought us together, all colors over a million people this year.

00:20:09--> 00:20:15

And this is miraculous after the COVID. Over a million people made the hutch.

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

No major incidents.

00:20:19--> 00:20:32

This is still miraculous even though we ourself do strange things. But Allah blesses this action and gives us unity and united Muslims all around the world on eidl Atta.

00:20:33--> 00:20:46

And so we pray together, regardless of color, regardless of language, nationality, we prayed together, we will one surf one line.

00:20:48--> 00:21:05

But after the Hajj is over, after the ritual is over, that feeling needs to continue. So I can look at my brother and my sister and say, This is my brother, this is my sister closer to me than my own blood.

00:21:06--> 00:21:08

Because that person is a believer.

00:21:09--> 00:21:15

And so the spirit of unity then continues in Abdullah

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

in the slave of Allah,

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

the running between Safa and Marwa,

00:21:23--> 00:21:25

which was done by a woman

00:21:26--> 00:21:35

Hajah may Allah be pleased with her. She ran in between Safar in Ottawa. And we follow her making Saudi.

00:21:36--> 00:21:43

And they even tell you when you reach the point where she was on the ground, and she ran a woman ran, you must run.

00:21:46--> 00:21:50

And so we ran in commemoration to the action of a woman.

00:21:52--> 00:21:57

We respect this beloved woman. But when we return,

00:21:58--> 00:22:01

we'll our actions turn into abuse of women.

00:22:03--> 00:22:07

Will women be put down even in our society that has to stop

00:22:09--> 00:22:12

in order for us to have the true spirit of Hajj?

00:22:13--> 00:22:17

of Sati then we need to look at every woman

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

as Hajah Alayhis Salam

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

and have that love and have that spirit.

00:22:26--> 00:22:28

The HUD judge was stoning Shayateen

00:22:29--> 00:22:38

they were stoning the devils in was Delphi. And some people lost control themselves and they jumped up and they beat they beat the shaytaan they couldn't control themselves.

00:22:39--> 00:22:43

But when they returned, they act like little demons themselves.

00:22:44--> 00:22:50

So did you really stone the shaytaan if you come back and act like a shaytaan

00:22:51--> 00:22:59

the spirit would make you stone the evil one, all your life. You stone the devil at work,

00:23:00--> 00:23:31

you will stone the devil. When immorality isn't placed in front of you, you will stone the devil with your family, all the actions, all the tempting all the promptings we will continue the spirit of Hajj and put it into our lives. This is a critical moment for us in this world. The world is now about to explode. In the next few days and years, we will begin to see natural occurrences like never before.

00:23:32--> 00:23:37

What will be our stance in this? And so we need wisdom.

00:23:38--> 00:23:42

Putting things in the proper place as Muslims.

00:23:43--> 00:24:40

And in this area of wisdom. We have so many examples. The example of a mirror meaning Omar Abdullah Tom Brady Allah one is one of the great examples and his words have a touching meaning and can sometimes hit us in our heart with the same spirit that came from Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was Sunday. The Prophet peace be upon him in his Arafat sermon. He said oh people Verily shaitan has despaired for forever, of being worshipped in the in this land of yours. But he but if he can be obeyed, in anything short of worship, he will be pleased, such as those deeds of yours in small affairs. What did Omar say? He is reported to have say small sins, hardly noticed by many are the

00:24:40--> 00:24:50

most deadly to your spiritual life. Small, small sense, things that people can't notice. That can bring you down.

00:24:52--> 00:24:53

And Omar Rhodiola

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

was reported to have said I have never regretted my silence as

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

For my speech, I've regretted it many times. Think about that.

00:25:07--> 00:25:14

He was reported to have said, the less attachment to the world, the easier is your life.

00:25:15--> 00:25:22

Think about that. The less attachment to the dunya is the easier is going to be your life.

00:25:23--> 00:25:35

He was reported to have said, remind yourself of Allah. For it is a cure. Do not remind yourselves of people, for it is a disease.

00:25:37--> 00:25:45

And so we begin to see it pushed over the internet, the rich and the famous, the successful, the athletes, people, people, people.

00:25:47--> 00:26:04

If you keep reminding yourself of people, it's a disease. So remind yourself of Allah. And Omar Rhodiola. One was important to have said, A man should be like a child with his wife. But if she needs him, he should act like a man.

00:26:06--> 00:26:07

Very important point.

00:26:09--> 00:26:17

You military as the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him head and as Ibrahim alayhi salam set the standard

00:26:18--> 00:27:01

and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam completed this standard. May Allah subhanaw taala give us the spirit of Hajj in our lives. May Allah subhanaw taala give us that feeling of humility and strength. And may Allah subhanaw taala forgive us for the wrongs and sins that we have done. May Allah ease up the burdens on the Ummah of Muhammad salallahu alayhi wa salam, and may Allah give us the best words as our last words, Kelly Mala ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam aku Lokali howdah while stuck for Lolly welcome, while he sat at Muslimeen him and CO lead and Ben Estelle Pharaoh you know who who have a photo array?
