Mohammed bin Abdullah, he sallallahu alayhi wa salam were shorter and more emotionally attached to her. We'll call them that that's in beta. We'll call them with the item Bala Akula. Bala Letson phenom,
and Hamdulillah we praise Allah we seek his aid and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves, and evil of our bad deeds, whomsoever Allah guides, knock in the sky, and whosoever Allah allow us to be led astray, and then can guide a right and bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah the Exalted and that Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him is his last messenger and servants Oh you who believe. Be mindful of Allah and dinette except in a state of submission to Him alone, or humanity be mindful of Allah Who created you from a single soul and from that created his mate and from that scatters many men and women of humanity. Be mindful of
Allah and do not cut off relations with your kin with your relatives and deed. Allah is Aurora Thebe is the monitor over you, or humanity be mindful of Allah and speak the truth in order for him to accept your deeds, and forgive us of our shortcomings and whoever obeys Allah, and His Messenger has indeed achieved the greatest achievement as to what follows need the best feature is the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. And the best guidance is that of Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, and of the worst affairs in our doctrinal system about Islam are the newly invented ones. For every newly invented affair in this situation is an innovation. And for every innovation is a form of
going astray. And for every form of going astray is in the fire of hell.
And Hamdulillah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there was a companion by the name of Jabba named Abdullah Ravi Allahu Anhu. Jabra bin Abdullah entered the masjid and when he entered the masjid the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him to get up and pray two rakaat because you see Jabra came in the masjid and he sat down. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instructed him to get up and to pray two rakaat attain coffee for 10. And I say that to say that if I see any youth now, or in the future, speaking, talking, I will address them as I'm about to address now. The youth that I see talking, the youth that I see talking, I will call you out as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam stopped the chutzpah to teach and instruct, make no mistake that I will do so because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
man, if he answered the promise, or someone said whoever says to his brother, I'm gonna sit to be quiet during the hutzpah that mean his cut back can possibly be invalid as well. It's important for us to be quiet and listen during the hotbar. And this is a reminder to the parents as well to instruct our youth to understand the greatness of the hotbar to understand the greatness of what ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is called zikalala. First out, it has decreed Allah He was a little bear to the degree that he told the Companions he told the Muslims to leave off buying and selling which is obligatory upon the Muslims, because that is the way that they provide for their family mentioning
this to show the importance of this, particularly for the parents to teach our children that when they come to the masjid, it is a different way that we act. It is a different level of respect. Who Xena to come and Nicola Masjid Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Oh, you believe who will Xena take home, take your beauty beautify yourself, dress your best dress, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also told them to wear a bill but he recommended for the companions to wear white because that is a sign of cleanliness and that during that time, the Companions probably the only time during the week that they would bathe because they were out in their farms out in their properties.
He also instructed them to make the muscles on Yama Juma and this is why some of the scholars say that it is obligatory to have muscle on your mudroom or to take a bath on Yamato Juma because during their time that was probably the only time during the week as we see in the explanation so he must live by Imam unknowing. In any case, brothers and sisters make no mistake parents
It is important for our youth to understand the importance of Yamo Jura, the mannerisms of Yama Juma and how to act in the house of Allah. With that being the case the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the companion, well, he wasn't a companion at the time his name was ID.
And he was calling him to Islam. He says, Now you federal K ID. ID what is making you run away from this truth.
That the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as his Hadith is and Muslim Imam Muhammad. He told him, what is making you run away from this truth asking him it was a question that he knew and he felt that it was become Muslim. And then he told it, do we not know Do you not know? You know, actually, that Allah is an Akbar. He is greater than every single thing. And I want us to capitalize on this beautiful name to date. That Allah subhanho wa Taala His name is Allah Akbar. One of them. And that Allah subhanho wa Taala when he mentions this name, it's important rather incumbent's for the saving our iman, maintaining our iman enriching our belief in Allah, understanding the importance of the
name of Akbar,
that when we say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar La ilaha illallah
wa Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar will Allah Hill hunt, that Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest there is no one worthy of worship except him. You notice how we say Akbar and in Arabic it could literally translate to mean greater than
which is a comparative, but in actuality, we know based on our knowledge and experience of God, that it is the superlative, meaning that he is the greatest not greater than, why do we not even say great because there is no comparison with Allah subhanho wa Taala
there is no comparison with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada in all of his attributes, all of his names in his attributes and the more you know Allah, the more you establish a relationship with him an intimate relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada, meaning that when you are by yourself, and you know you've committed that particular sin, and you go back to it consistently, you think to yourself, Allah for that Allah is the offer, giving a Rahim that Allah has a beneficent
that with the sin that I've committed, I know that I've consistently made this mistake, and I know it is a desire that I have. But when I'm alone with you, you're Allah, I feel terrible.
We know that Allah is Akbar, fuelphp Ronnie, we know that Allah, Akbar and his Rama, that Allah is the Greatest. There is no manifestation of forgiveness, Grace within God's forgiveness. You may have oppressed me brother or sister. I may have oppressed you and you still haven't gotten over it. The next year of Ramadan comes right so I'm not going to forgive that brother. Somebody gives you the phone to text him. Just say hello. Just say Ramadan Mubarak know.
Allah subhanho wa taala. As soon as you knock on the door of forgiveness, Allah subhanho wa Taala is ready to forgive.
ALLAH is ready to forgive. So when we look at that, look at the name of Akbar, we know that in all of his attributes, it is greater than we can ever imagine. Or we can ever actualize within ourselves. So if I tried to forgive someone, that forgiveness may have a certain motive behind it, that forgiveness may be temporary.
But what the loss forgiveness, it is because He loves you and he only wants what is best for you. On this day of Eid, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make us of those that celebrate his name and celebrate his greatness. When Allah subhana wa Tada is consistently talking about celebration. Yes. And the Quran. The way that one celebrates, is they ponder over what He has given them. And that's the first advice I want to give to all of us is to be thoughtful, thoughtful, thoughtful,
thoughtful, meaning that we think we ponder, we reflect and listen Arabic is vicar,
remembering Allah, thinking about his actions in our lives. We have went the past a couple of years through a sickness and epidemic that has affected the whole world
to where some of us we still wear masks because of the situation, our specific situation or that which we feel may be happening around us that can affect us in a negative way.
Because of what has emerged a couple of years ago, but we are still able to come to the mosque and to celebrate with our families to celebrate and to honor what
to honor what to honor the Creator of the heavens and the earth that has enabled us physically.
Psychologically, psychologically, brothers and sisters, we should not be little the fact that psychologically, we still have the effort, the wherewithal, and dare I say, an associate II man with our psychology to come close to Allah voluntarily.
Brothers and sisters, as some of you know, I was in Turkey 10 days after the earthquake, the wife of one of the mayors of the towns Gaziantep. She mentioned one thing that we will need in the next couple of years, we thank you for coming to our country and helping but one of the most important things is that we will need an infrastructure particularly of two things, education, and psychiatry,
psychiatric wards, because people will be affected by what they've seen their senses, and I'm saying their senses because there was some of what they've seen. And even Subhanallah what they have smelled
upon our trip over the they said, you may have to wear a mask because the corpses that you may encounter when they pull the rubble off. This reality brothers and sisters Be thankful and do not be little the fact that you coming to the masjid in the middle of the day, on one of the best days of the year, well, Allah He may Allah subhanho wa Taala reward each and every single one of you. And mean because this is so important that you are making the deen of Allah great in your life, in your day in your actions with your family and with others, that when you send a text out there even mobilock to your co workers that may not be Muslim, to the relative that you're trying to bring back
to the individual that may have had something in their life that has been very traumatizing, and you're doing your best to call them back to Allah, to call them back to prayer, to call them back to his thoughtfulness to be thoughtful about God. To know that life is temporary, and to make them ponder and think about where they will go. As all of us, Allah subhanaw taala has chosen a particular time, place event situation that he chooses to take us off of this earth. But being thoughtful about what Allah makes great is from the taqwa of the heart. It is from the mindfulness and the remembrance and the fear of the heart. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, when he
speaks about the ceremonial practices of hajj, he concludes it by saying llegan Allah Allah Allah, Allah, Allah King and Allahu tuk Weiming come.
Allah says, After speaking about the animal that will be sacrificed on the day of Eid in hajj, he said, the blood nor the meats will reach Allah. You know, when you sacrifice the animal, it's not like it's going to ascend up into the sky.
Allah says this doesn't reach Allah. But it is the taqwa that reaches Allah. It is the mindfulness that leads to obedience that leads to fear that leads to honesty that leads to all of Allah that pushed you to do I don't know why Allah chose a cattle. I don't know why Allah chose this animal. Why did he choose this day? Why did he choose in this country? Why did he choose in this situation? Why I'm wearing two towels? Why did he choose? I don't know. But you know what? I know that Allah is EK batarfi enemy he.
I know that his knowledge is greater than my knowledge. I know that he is Ec Barfi Hekmati. He
will he hooked me he? I know that he is the greatest and his wisdom and in his legislation, meaning that whatever he legislated, it may not sit well with me. That's fine, you're human. But that's where you have to make a choice. Who is more knowledgeable of myself? Is it me? Or is it the one that created me? When we say Allahu Akbar, we should think of that.
Upon the conclusion of Ramadan, Allah subhana wa Taala wants you to celebrate, but he wants you to celebrate with thoughtfulness. He wants you to celebrate with thoughtfulness to remember him to be of those that are Zack Keating, and also a Sheki. Of Gulu Cali. Hello, Stafford Ali, welcome. We certainly must mean first of all, no one before right
Hamdulillah he said he was shook a lot with with chakra Tofik iomt Nanny.
So when we talk about the first thing, reminding ourselves that we should remind ourselves, reminding ourselves that we should remind ourselves about Allah subhanho wa taala. About his greatness about His Majesty, brothers and sisters, do yourself a favor and read the names and attributes of Allah. You know the names and the names that you have on your wall, there 99 Even though there's many more than that, Allah subhanho wa Taala wants you to read them, to ponder over them. Because one day you look at the name of last year, for example, the abundance
to have a life of abundance, that Allah gives how he wills and when he gives, He gives with no limits because it is up to him. When Allah wants us to worship him, it is only for our benefit. It is not for Allah which four can express that there is a need from Allah rather, it is for the sake of Allah that Allah wants it for you to be a better you
that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one that wants the best for you. But he created you with raw materials. He created you with a motherboard. He created you with his a fitrah that natural inclination that we have that is pure and pristine, but can be affected by societal ills, friends, family, politics, it can be affected by that. And that is why it's important for the Muslim to be thoughtful and have victory of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And this day of eight which is the conclusion of a month of exponential thoughtfulness of Allah, the month of Ramadan. As it concludes Allah subhanho wa Taala in shucks instructs us to say Allahu Akbar, Allah Subhana. Allah says in the
Quran, when he talks about the month of Ramadan, and he gives some of the rulings regarding Ramadan when he says after a little bit lamina shape on regime for men Sure, hit them in comas shahada friendly Asuma woman can Amin committee one Oh ALLAH suffering and that's one main aim and Aha, you read Allah become a user where you read to become also willing to commit that are willing to commit Allah Allah. Allah Allah, Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Whoever witnesses the month Yeah, and whoever witnesses the moon fairly assume an imperative verb to fast when you witness the moon, the crescent moon, whether it's the beginning or ending that marks the beginning of the moon and the lunar calendar which we follow as Muslims.
Woman can mean committee alone and whoever is sick or traveling for that will mean a Yemen or her then the appointed days or for other days, if you are sick, and it is a bad sickness or a chronic illness, you may not have to fast and feed a poor person or if it is a mild sickness and acute illness, then you just don't fast that day. And when you're better the remaining 11 months you can make up that day but you must make up that day.
Or traveling you can break your fast if you wish, but you have to make it up that's what it means for it to mean a yam in or other days. Then Allah says, Allah wants for you ease and does not want for you hardship brother let's brothers and sisters Wallahi let's stop here.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the hair that Dean will use
in the hair the dean or user in the hair that Dino uses, he said this religion is easy.
When you share a love Allah,
he said and it will not be harmful, it will not
be hard upon the Muslim or the Muslim is not hard upon them. So shadow I hadn't. It is not hard upon the Muslim except the one that when he is harsh upon him or herself, it will overpower them
to being too hard on themselves. But this religion is easy from the aspect that one just has to try. And that trying is religiosity. Making the attempt is religiosity getting up in the morning and instructing your family or at nighttime and saying we have eat tomorrow or say I'm not able to make it but I'm going to make Juma on this day, and I'm going to celebrate the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah wants for you ease and doesn't want for you hardship. No, Allah is telling you here his intention behind your creation, his intention behind giving you a framework, what is the framework after you're created? What are you supposed to do? He gives you the Quran. He gives
you the actualization of the Quran, how do you live it? There are prophets because the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which even tells you how to go to the bathroom.
That is how much ease Allah wants from you and everything that you do. He wants it to be Oh,
to be grand, to be respected, to be moral, to be clean, to be honorable, to be honest, in everything that you do to where when people see it, the other individuals that are connected to their fitrah they will see it, they will spot it. And it's something beyond our tangible senses. It's something that connects to the heart. That is how deep the message of Islam is. Because the message of Islam is from Allah.
When we say more, a little globe, the prophets Olson was in frustration he said, Oh, the one that flips the hearts make my heart firm on the on your religion firm. So when Allah subhanaw taala says he wants to you ease and doesn't want for you hardship. And then he says after that, when he took me to it, that I will lead to capital Allah, Allah Maha dalkom. After he says he wants for you ease and doesn't want for your hardship. And then he says, and for you to complete the appointed period, which is the 30 days of Ramadan. And then after that, he says, will lead to cupbearer little Kabila tech beer. I'll Mr. Hidalgo upon what He has guided you, and to make God great upon what He has
guided you, perhaps you will be of the thankful and that's the second advice on this DVD brothers and sisters. thankfulness, gratitude,
thankfulness and gratitude, if each and every single one of us was to leave out of this message.
And we were to give you
a $500 each and every single one even the kids $500 certificate gift certificate to Costco, Sam's wholesale, any department store to where every single individual can buy a video game, or buy a pair of jeans or some socks or a barbecue grill?
You would say thank you. And you know what? Every time you come to this match, you say I'm going to ICC for Ramadan next year. Why? You know why? I'm making Salah to eat at Masjid ICC. Why? You know why?
What about your eyes and hands that you use to grab the card, your intellect that you use to use the card? Who gave you that?
So when Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about this appointed period, to say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. That is a sign of your taqwa. And that is a sign of your gratitude. And that's why he says, when I come to school law, I literally means and perhaps you may be if you think about what was just mentioned earlier, I want for you ease don't want for you hardship, complete the period, the time period and say Allahu Akbar, perhaps if you think and ponder over that, you will be the test guru and you will be those that are grateful. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us grateful on this beautiful day. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make this a day that we celebrate in our hearts
in our minds and our actions toward shows in our actions and on our tongues. May Allah subhana wa Allah make us of those that glorify His name, throughout the day, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us of those that praise him and honor him. May Allah Subhana Allah make us of those that praise and honor hit this deen and its religion.
