mother rasool Allah all
How are you I know sorry
Hamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen Well I RP but a little more talking well IRD one Allah Allah dolly mean wa Sherwin La ilaha illallah wa ala Sharika wa shadow Ana Mohammed Abdullah who was a Zulu. So Allah Allahu Allah, when Allah Allah He was happy women da vida when he was tender be so naughty. Allah yummy Deen was salam to Sleeman Kathira Amma bad for we'll see come when FCB taco Allah azza wa jal with some EVA you call it the hawk Subhana Ooh, the bIllahi min ash shaytaan the regime? Yeah, are you Hala? Dena Armano taco law, Kumar xrdp.
All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds
and surely the best reward is for those who have Taqwa.
And surely there is no animosity except for the oppressor.
And I be a witness that Allah is one and has no partners. And that Mohammed the son of Abdullah, servant is 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 you of the critical importance of Taqwa and how far Raja, that we should fear Allah subhanaw taala yet hope in the Mercy of Allah, and this consciousness will protect us and surround us not only in the masjid, but even in the world.
And Allah subhanaw taala has revealed in his mighty book or you who believe, have the consciousness of Allah and be with the truthful
and Allah uses here a Saudi theme.
And when we speak about a Saudi Kane the truthful we are talking about a sage finia Well, Cole Well, Wafa that the person should be truthful in what they intend,
and truthful in what they say. And truthful in what they do.
Now that tells us commands us be with the truthful wise, the honest ones, the sincere ones, and that is so important today when we are living in the time of deception.
We are living in the time before the coming of the great deceiver, a digital well email to be loved.
And so human beings are developing the ability to deceive to make
True, what's false, to make false what appears to be true.
And now even to train artificial intelligence,
to even create other aspects of confusion in our lives, but Allah tells us very clearly be with the truthful and that said, needs to be in our relationships with people. We have to have truth even in our wealth, try to have money and wealth that is not just in the bank have wealth of gold and silver and land. That is the Islamic wealth. It is tangible wealth. It is not theoretical wealth. So diversify your life don't get caught up in the hype. Don't get caught up in the pied piper story, dragging us into a state of confusion.
And so today with such a beautiful crowd of Muslims, and an all of the masajid they call it Good Friday.
People are marching in the streets, in Christian lands.
And for the Muslims. It is a beautiful Friday and the prophets of Salaam has told us Pharaoh Yeoman Tala Tala he shrimps, your mille Juma fie Holika Adam will fee Akela Jana will fee free German ha Walter comesa Illa yo ml Juma the Wahoo Muslim. The Prophet Sal Sal them told us the best day on which the sun has arisen is the day of Juma. It is the day that Adam was created, the day he entered Jannah is the day he left from gender and the last hour the Day of Resurrection will come on Joomla
the Prophet SAW Salem also described Joomla saying say that I am your Mazuma
Azam OHA and Allah heeta Allah Allah
and Allah him in Yama will fit over your mulata
the Prophet SAW Selim said the master of the days is the day of Juma and it is greater in the eyes of Allah even then eat the Joomla is greater than eidl fitter and greater than eidl Atta and so we need to take advantage of our Joomla fill our Masjid like this every Joomla
because every Juma for us is a Good Friday.
We have sattell Mr. Zhao but there is an hour in this day in which our prayers will be answered. We need to read surah till calf, the chapter of the cave and the Prophet Sal Salim said min para ser hotel Cafe yomo. Juma er da Allahu wa Mina Nora ma banal Juma attain.
The Prophet Sal Salim said whoever read Serato calf on the day of Juma a light will come for him in between the two Dumars.
Oh you who believe
another strange season is upon us. In the world of deception and confusion. People are coming out of themselves in the northern countries. This is the time and we see it nature is changing right in front of our eyes. Beautiful plants are rising up. Life is coming back after the death of the winter season.
But we see on this occasion that they call Easter we see symbols of rabbits and eggs and flowers and candles. It is a strange occasion, like the winter solstice December 25. When they said it was the birth of Christ. But yet it was a pagan celebration. Yet
Santa Claus was the main individual
and the mid February celebration of the Lupercalia which Christians now even celebrate Valentine's Day.
But it is a time of immorality. And now in the spring equinox, the spring Solstice that we are in right now.
After the death in the winter, in anxious times in the northern countries, people were so joyous about the dramatic change that is happening. Flowers are coming out
Almost coming out of their hibernation, it is a time of life after death.
And so, the pagan goddess, they called her Easter
And the symbols of this time and if you ask a Christian a person, what do you think of when you say the word Easter, they will tell you rabbits, they will tell you eggs.
They will tell you flowers, they will tell you lights. These are the symbols of fertility. It's a nature cult. These are the symbols of the Sun worshipping people. When the early Christian preachers came into this, and were being attacked and insulted and killed, they combined the two.
these teachings of Isa lay Salem with the nature.
So therefore, when we say Easter today, they say it is the greatest Christian holiday.
But Easter has nothing to do with Christians.
But they brought it together.
Life after Death.
Resurrection after crucifixion.
So they brought it together to try to gain from both sides. And they brought in the cross as the symbol. But the cross was 1000s of years before the time of Isa Leyzaola, the symbol of eternal life.
Allah subhanaw taala told us very clearly and we are so blessed to have the last revelation to clear up deception. To clear up confusion. Allah tells us in His mighty book, or it was a bIllahi min ash shaytaan the regime mal Mercy who been a Mariama Illa Sulan Kahala admin cubberly Here Russo were uma who said data can Colonia Tom on the K for new Bayesian Allah Humann is set to Mundo and now you have a coin. Allah revealed to us the Messiah, Son of Mary was no more than a messenger. Clear.
He was a prophet, he was a messenger. Many messengers had come and gone before him. His mother was a woman of truth, and they both used to eat food.
See how we make the science clear to them?
Yet see how they are deluded from the truth can now yet Kolani Tom, can God eat food? No. Can the Son of God eat food, no clear discussion for the common masses of the people. What the reality is, it is a delusion that people are living in. And now it's even coming strange things are coming in. Even in countries like Finland and Sweden. The little girls dress up dress up like witches. This weekend. In the Philippines, they marched in the streets barefoot and beat themselves.
And a man in the Philippines even he bragged about the fact that he crucified he was crucified 25 times
they put him on the cross 25 times, nailing his hand and he wants 26
He's a full
it's a delusion and Allah told us very clearly what market aloo masala boo we're lacking, should be Hala home. They did not kill him. They did not crucify him. But it was made to appear to them that they did. And so the truth is, this is not a Good Friday. This is a great Friday and a blessed month in the month of Ramadan. And we need to take maximum advantage of the benefits of the month of Ramadan we are in the second half of the month. It is leaving us take benefits to get forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala seek that forgiveness be sincere
and pray to Allah.
Because the Prophet SAW Selim said min sama Ramadan, Eman and YT saben who fade Allahumma Takata madmen Danby, that whoever fasten Ramadan with faith and confident expectation of the reward of Allah, all of their sins
are being forgiven.
This is a chance for us to take maximum benefit of Toba to make repentance. And that is to me
analyze ourselves if we have done wrong.
ask Allah to forgive you for the wrongs you have done. But don't stop there. Toba means you must make the intention never to return to the sin.
Toba also means rather than mythology that you have to compensate people if you have done wrong to them. Toba also means you need to analyze yourself. You do self analysis, and reconstruction. So this is a time we can analyze our faults and our lives and we can reconstruct ourselves. That is the beauty of a Toba. They thought they destroyed Islam hundreds of years ago by Allah gave us Toba and when they killed the Muslim and destroy the Muslim, there were more of them coming back. There were some people who left their faith and came back into the faith. So let's take maximum advantage of this. We also have to take advantage of being able to give sadaqa to give charity during this time.
And this is the time when the Prophet Sal Sanlam was the most generous and we need to be the most generous with our wealth that Allah has put into our hands. We need to spend, we need to spread peace everywhere we possibly can. special prayers, take advantage of this. We are coming into the last 10 Nights Tuesday coming with dealing with the odd Nights of The Last nights in Ramadan. What possible Leila toccata how you don't mind elfish Ah, it is better than 1000 months take advantage of this.
Let us take advantage to unite with other Muslims. And our unity should not be just words.
The unity is to show compassion. That means we identify with our brothers and our sisters. We emphasize with them we feel what they feel.
And we look at the world and we see the Rohingya Muslims are in terrible situation.
East Africa is having one of the worst droughts in its history.
We see all over the world confusions happening. Muslims under the test earthquake victims and now mastered Al Aqsa.
We have to emphasize and we have to feel what other Muslims are feeling.
And for those who are not aware of this how important muscle Aqsa and the land surrounding it is the Kaaba in Mecca was the first house of worship on Earth. And it was in the shape of basil more Adam Alayhis Salam
Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam built on the foundations with Ismail Alayhi Salam.
And 40 years after building the Kaaba,
Master Al Aqsa was put up in Jerusalem
and is Hawk alayhi salam Yaqoob alayhi salam prayed inside of this area, and the native people who lived in the area for 1000s of years. You must never forget that from back in the time of Ibrahim alayhi salam, the native people, the indigenous people, as we would say, here in the land for 1000s of years with the Palestinians. And it was the Palestinians who supported Ibrahim alayhis salam.
They are the ones who took care of the house.
When the children of Israel were in bondage in Egypt, who took care of the house. It was the native indigenous people of the land.
And after centuries of destruction in this land, Allah subhanaw taala sent the Prophet Sal Salim in the year 621.
On Israel and Mirage,
it was from Jerusalem.
That is how sacred he prayed with all of the prophets
of the sacred place. And even though the Byzantine Romans controlled the area,
Allah subhanaw taala enabled the Muslims under the free Laffitte of Omar Al Khattab to take over Jerusalem. And to open it up and say done our Omar Abdullah, one received the keys from the patriarch and he made it walk off. He made this area to be a trust not only on the Sahaba but a trust on all of the Muslims and then the
Still a trust up until now.
The Crusaders attacked
and they ruled the area for 88 years. But in 1187 Sultan Salahuddin Rahim Allah opened up based on mock tests, he opened up Jerusalem again. And the Muslims rule there 761 years, till 1948 761 years,
allowing Christians allowing Jewish people to come inside some of the oldest churches of Christianity, the Church of the Nativity is there.
And they cooperated with the Muslims. And so we need to raise up our voice individually as a group to condemn what is the atrocities that are happening in my subtle AXA in the month of Ramadan?
What can we do?
We can pressurize our governments on the local level, on a higher level the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that it should condemn this. We need to stand together with our advocacy groups, the NCC M and advocacy groups, stand together with them, do whatever you possibly can do, at least make to
make dua that Allah subhanaw taala would ease up the burden on our brothers and sisters and would open up this beautiful place. We pray that Allah subhanaw taala would have mercy upon this ummah. We pray that Allah subhanaw taala would protect us from the evil deceptions of this world. We pray that Allah subhanaw taala will have mercy on the children of the ummah of Mohammed Salah salah. We pray that Allah would protect the dignity and the honor of the women of the Ummah, Muhammad Salah Salem. We pray that Allah would protect and strengthen the men of the Ummah, Mohamed Salah salah. We pray that Allah would raise up leadership in the Muslim world, strong leadership, to guide us from
darkness into light. And we pray that Allah would help us to be with them, and to be those who truly stand for truth, regardless of the cost.
