Indeed, they are very difficult except for those who have a full state of acceptance, those who know that they are going to meet their Lord and today to him they will return.

00:03:28--> 00:03:30

This is a post eight hotbar

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

they're very typical.

00:03:34--> 00:03:44

I'm not going to start a new series today. Because I think it's important that we take a moment and analyze a little bit what we did for 30 days straight and how this week has gone for the majority of people sitting here.

00:03:46--> 00:03:53

As I was driving over, I had to stand for maybe to stop in my car for me two minutes, because a couple of Canadian keys were crossing the road.

00:03:55--> 00:04:14

Now don't get me started on how much I love Canadian geese. But the concept that I thought about that I wanted to actually bring to this football was had this happened anywhere else, anywhere else that I grew up, the people driving their cars would have found satisfaction and running them over multiple times, you would have found it very joyful to do so they probably wouldn't take pictures after they were done.

00:04:16--> 00:04:52

And when you think about it, it's not for a lack of Islamic literature or texts, holy text that tells us very clearly the importance of showing compassion and mercy towards all the creations of God, specifically animals. I did a full 30 minute dose just in Ramadan about how the Prophet Allah, Allah to them treated animals. So it's not for the lack of literature or text or teachings or principles or ideas. No, we have an abundance of that. Yet if you go to the majority of Muslim countries, an animal crossing the road having a chance of making to the other side. You know the joke where they say Why did the chicken cross the road in the middle of our country's it wouldn't

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

have made it to the other side for the question to exist in the first place. But again, it's not for the lack of proper teaching. And what is it why is it what's missing?

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

Why is it that other places don't stop? There's something called by him.

00:05:05--> 00:05:46

There's something called by him is different than the existence of the ideas, principles and ethics. Those are there. We have all of the amazing ideas, principles and ethics as Muslims, we have the best ideas, principles and ethics. They are not flawed in any way. They do not. There's nothing missing in them. They're actually very well established, very well demonstrated, you have role modeling for them. You have extremely well defined and described rationale and reasons for all of them. You have examples. There's divine wisdom, there's a human reward for doing them. The full package of amazing ideas, principles and ethics. What's missing is the buy in. What's missing is the

00:05:46--> 00:06:11

buy in. You see the profit out of your salon to build the OMA on 100,000 Muslims that he spoke to on the day of hedger delivered a Farewell Sermon. No, no, no. He built Islam and a much smaller group. The group that actually committed to his teachings Allah He has taught to us were much smaller with the the evidence that's obvious was he died out of his throat to Assam, a lot of Muslims stopped paying zakat to the to the state. And the words of Red Devil apostasy had to occur.

00:06:12--> 00:06:17

A lot of Muslims accepted Islam during his life, how do you start to a salmon weren't fully committed to it. That's why we have within Islam and

00:06:19--> 00:06:31

there's a part of zakat that is given to those who aren't really fully there. He needed a lot, he started to give a lot of wealth. He built Islam in a very small group of people. That group of people had fooled by him.

00:06:32--> 00:06:44

Because now it wasn't only him holding himself that Allah Allah sent him to the standard that he held himself to the golden standard ethics, principles and values. But he had Muslims with him who are holding themselves to the exact same standard.

00:06:46--> 00:07:22

It's hard for a group of people for a population to follow along a set of teachings that only one person pulls himself to the standard of not hard is impossible won't happen. If only one person is holding themselves to this standard, the rest of people be like, okay, even if that person is human, fully human flesh and bones, not divine in any way. As he was saying, Allah, Allah, he always like to sell them not. He was human, he was man. Oh, he was not beyond that. But it was only him holding himself to that standard, people aren't interested. They need to see examples of others who do the same, there has to be a group. And he had a group out of his salatu salam, he had a hobo and OMA

00:07:22--> 00:07:39

Northman and I leave and I Isha Khadija and Fatima, and Saeed inside and 100 Zubayr. All these people who held themselves to the standards, and others were able to watch them, and others were able to use them as examples of those who carried the highest standard of ethics, values and principles.

00:07:41--> 00:08:23

Which is what we need. I am a firm believer in the 2% theory, that in order for you to change the population, you just need 2% of them, just 2% will hold themselves to the standard that Everyone claims to believe in. We all claim to believe a lot of things everyone's sitting here, we claim to believe many, many things, a lot of ideals, principles, values and ethics we all claim to hold on to we love them, we celebrate them, we will describe them. If a non Muslim asked you will, you will, you will go ahead and tell all the stories that you heard throughout your life, these beautiful ideals and principles and values and ethics. We claim to believe in them. Or let's say we do believe

00:08:23--> 00:08:28

in them, but then who practices them. But who's holding themselves to that standard

00:08:29--> 00:08:41

in every aspect of their lives in their daily dealings with people around them their transactions, how they run their businesses, how they treat their family, their spouses and children, parents and siblings

00:08:42--> 00:08:48

how they make their money how they are we are they are they practice there are they practice and that part of life?

00:08:50--> 00:08:57

You need by him? You need people to do that. Without it without that buy in. This is just Calum. It's just

00:08:58--> 00:09:34

we're just talking. I just get up here and I talk you try to enjoy the talk. We'll come back next week for another talk and we'll just we'll just talk but nothing actually changes in order for change to occur as he explained to us supine it without right you know, this is again, another eye that is used so much recited so in so many different ways by so many people all the time in Hola Hola. Hola, yo, yo, homie, we know it to the point where people have memorized it. Yes, you will. You will not be unfussy him. And then it just it turns into a cliche after a while. Yes, Allah. Indeed, Allah does not change the status of a group of people until they change themselves or what's

00:09:34--> 00:09:35

within themselves.

00:09:36--> 00:09:39

But nothing changes until change occurs.

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

If we are not happy with the status of ourselves or OMA or our communities or populations or societies, that something has to change, something has to change or something has to give one of two things. Either something will give in some points because we don't change anything and then we have to repeat. We have to deal with the consequences of things that

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

had been for a very long time or are we start changing? And I claim that the 2% principle here works

00:10:10--> 00:10:43

and why am I giving this after it? Because you've established you've discovered a few things after a few things were discovered off trade you discovered that Allah subhanaw that really what you did in Ramadan wasn't your wasn't me like, Okay, I'll talk about myself. So I don't come across as offensive. I discovered that whenever I was doing a Ramadan wasn't a meet me, wasn't me at all. Because it's still me. I'm the same guy I was 10 days ago as I am today, same person, nothing's changed. But by the by God have I am I different? Just tells me that it's not it wasn't about me. Ramadan was about Allah subhanho wa taala, he opened the doors, and he closed other doors. And he

00:10:43--> 00:10:51

said, Come to me. So I came to him subhanho wa taala. So with all about him, I had nothing to do with me. Nothing about my mind or my ability or my commitment, or my

00:10:52--> 00:11:12

open heartedness, nothing, it was about Allah subhanaw taala his love for me. And he specified a time and he said, Come to me, so I came to him, and he opened his doors, he allowed me to enjoy, he allowed me to, to embrace my face to be closer to him Subhanallah and to actually taste the sweet nectar of being close to him some high notes either for 30 days, that's all him. So I know, I just got used to discovered that a week after.

00:11:14--> 00:11:51

You can see that you can spend time feeling bad about how we're not today as we were eight, nine days ago, or we can just realize it's impossible. You can't be today, the way you were nine or 10 days ago, because Allah subhanaw taala opened the doors then and the doors aren't open today. So it's normal for there to be a difference. However, he didn't give you this taste like an open book, favorite thing to hear face. You like it, you want something like that? Alright, well, you could get you could continue to have a certain portion or degree of it. If you just focus a little bit if a few changes occur in your life. Ramadan is there to give you a sense of what can be what when be

00:11:51--> 00:12:23

here, here, here, here's how beautiful it is. Here's how amazing being close to Allah subhanaw taala actually is you taste it, you felt it. If you came from Milan, any part of the world and you message it anywhere and you pray during those last two nights, for example, you attended tomorrow, you fasted it something happened, it's like you felt something different. You enjoy something something nice. You say you want to enjoy that it's possible you can continue to have something like that. Yes, it's not gonna be the same because Ramadan is a very specific time that Allah subhanaw taala grants us certain things, but He does it so that we can actually take it as a as a

00:12:24--> 00:13:02

as an example, you know, go to Costco and do someone's giving out these little tastes and you you enjoy the ego by the actual product is the same thing. Allahu Allah Ramadan here, here's a taste, here's the what can be. It's not gonna go on forever. The person after they give you two or three bites will get rid of you because you have to go by it if you want it. Ramadan is similar. Here's a taste of what can be all right, all right, you want to continue to enjoy that after Ramadan it very possible. But some things have to change. Some things have to change. If no change occurs then. And here's the idea. Ramadan is there to allow us to change it's there to for us to start to jumpstart

00:13:02--> 00:13:07

our changing. Instead of Ramadan continuously be just being a novelty or being this

00:13:09--> 00:13:39

this time of the year that nothing is similar to that you'd enjoy for a certain period of time, then you completely drop off until it comes back 11 months later. It can be like that, or it can be something different. Again, you just need buy in from 2% of people 2% Who will enjoy them avant understand the profoundness of being close to Allah subhanaw taala, wanting to have that making some changes within themselves and allowing them of God to be the reason that that started that next time around, they're closer to God. So they actually enjoy on a higher level. Now on the same level on a higher level, because they've actually made some progress and some

00:13:40--> 00:13:43

movement forward, then people will start doing that as well.

00:13:45--> 00:13:49

Instead of us running over the animals on the street, a couple of us actually stop.

00:13:50--> 00:13:56

We do it a couple of times, and everyone kind of gets on board. Yeah, maybe we should stop too. Well, everyone seems to be doing it not every one to 2% of people.

00:13:57--> 00:14:30

Sometimes you overestimate the power of law, by the way, you say well, if you know you'll be random over policing, I can tell you that he's not you know, the law doesn't really know. The law doesn't have as much as you think it does. It's a culture. It's people's cultures. We have accepted as a culture that Ramadan is a fluke, you enjoy for three days and then you go back to how you were before for No, that's not how it is. That's not to be like that. It wasn't designed to be like that. Let's see if we can change that. It's not the heart, not the heart we can change that a little bit. So next time Allah you're closer to Allah subhanaw taala so that we as a community can experience

00:14:30--> 00:14:44

Ramadan and a higher level or else imagine imagine someone doing my job how how boring it'll be for the next 40 years exactly the same thing, because everyone's gonna regress to the exact same place they were before Ramadan have to start from that spot from at the start a bit higher as a group.

00:14:45--> 00:14:55

Nobody the year after we start at a higher spot, which is what he did Allah His salatu salam. By the time he passed away, I said Allah Hi. So he was saying he didn't leave amateurs. He left scholars.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

He left scholars of Islam. He loves peace.

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

Both were capable of carrying an OMA on their shoulders by themselves without him being there. So how do you use them as evidence with your existence right now, as evidence of you sitting here?

00:15:14--> 00:15:19

Where do you come from? I can tell you that the majority of people here are not from Croatia,

00:15:20--> 00:15:59

or in crystal, or Laos, the majority of people here come from other parts of the world myself, beginning with myself. It's because of those people and the buy in that they showed during his life, how to use them and the advancements and the growth that he exhibited in themselves as he taught them. And as I said, Ramadan and other times of God were presented to them the elevated in their status and they were able to to continue this even when he passed away. So ALLAH HAFIZ lives, organizations and companies and massage it where if the leader passes away the whole thing, it goes, it goes, imagine Muhammad Rasulullah what wa salam dying pm even imagine that, even imagine if I

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

told this day the scholars will say that there is no more sleep, that is more that was more impactful or had worse consequences or is worthy of our sadness

00:16:12--> 00:16:21

and the death of Muhammad Rasulullah Allah has languished till this date, there is no mostly about that even comes remotely close to our loss of him not to his love to us. And yet Islam continued.

00:16:22--> 00:16:23

Islam continued,

00:16:24--> 00:16:33

yet I know massage that the Imam dies the masjid is close to a company the CEO dies, the company loses it. Why? What was the problem if Islam could continue?

00:16:34--> 00:16:48

And Islam had the most impactful human being to ever live for so Allah Allah, Allah is because he helped people grow we have to change in order for change to actually occur. I was told that Allah honey welcome First of all, if you don't be afraid of Lakonia Fosun will stop feeding and stop.

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

you have to Allah subhanho wa Taala Alikum used to hate macaroni after hoobie Here I like but here's

00:19:18--> 00:19:34

what I want to do at the end of this is give you three categories to think about where change I think occurs individually. were changed actually actually encouraged individually, I think of three categories. The first category again, you cannot go back to what you were doing in Ramadan, you are fasting daily, you can't do that.

00:19:35--> 00:19:54

You can barely get the six days of shoden you can do daily. You can obviously pray for an hour and a half every night. Maybe Allah Allah granted some of us the ability to do but most people can't. But let's talk about something that can be done. So three categories number one ritual that comes to any burden when it comes to our rituals. Let's see if you can make a step forward.

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

Let's see if you can commit yourself maybe three days a month FCM that's the 13th

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

1415 Not possible any three days, most scholars are happy with any three days of the month month. Yes 1314 15 being the best of the of the lunar month, but anything

00:20:10--> 00:20:43

having a specific amount of invocation of dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala daily, something small, a couple of 100 a couple of 100 daily just something to keep Allah subhanaw taala his name on your tongue let you continue to remember him gentleman because for 30 days that's all you cared about everything was connected to Allah your you woke up professional you motivated you fasted you broke your fast you pray everything was about Allah subhanaw taala it can't be like that after Ramadan. I hope I've established that for you. I'm not I'm not aiming that high. You can't aim that high anyways, anyway, but you can say Let's take something, something, maybe a little bit of wisdom, a

00:20:43--> 00:21:03

small amount of Quran a portion of Quran daily, there's something a page off a page, a couple of lines, something of Quran, make sure the day the 24 hours don't pass, don't you picking up the book of Allah subhanaw taala reading something, even if it's something very simple. Well, let me just say earlier, but just make sure that you're doing an automatic and you start from the beginning and you move on take a few minutes to think about the person that you read.

00:21:04--> 00:21:14

Hello, Gemma operates, how many how many pairs of Gemini? Do you do a week? You only do Jumeirah to that come once a week outside of Joomla. For Asia for a visual for a virtual.

00:21:16--> 00:21:38

You come everyday once, make it twice. You come a couple of times a week, make it every day a week find something give yourself a little bit of an improvement, push yourself just one step forward. I've been doing this for the majority of my life, and I don't really feel God at all. And then I'm Allah comes in I feel God, well, maybe just maybe if you added something, just something to your schedule, maybe you'll feel something just try it. You haven't tried it before?

00:21:39--> 00:22:12

What was the loss? What's the risk here? Try something more. Give yourself a little bit of a push forward. add something to your routine. Take a look at your routine and be honest about it. What do you actually do when it comes to the remembrance of Allah? When it comes to the Quran? What comes to prayer? What do you ask you to write them down? You will be mortified. You'll be very upset when you look at what you actually do. When you actually see the numbers you'll be I can't believe this all I'm doing. And I'm not saying that. Let's change that completely. I'm just saying add something does something well, or something simple. Maybe to lock on every night, every night, maybe Monday and

00:22:12--> 00:22:31

Thursday night or something. Or just pay to unlock something, give yourself give yourself a boost forward. It's very Ramadan gave you a taste of something beautiful. It's worth maybe making a little bit of change in our routines to see if we can get something of that back. Well, you'll be surprised. You'll be surprised how quickly Allah subhanaw will come to you come to your aid.

00:22:34--> 00:22:58

Chevron, corrupt Villa de la and my attorney emigrated to Ottawa, if you come to me just a couple of centimeters, I'll come miles for you. You walk to me, I'll run to you Gela gentle Allah and there's no answer morphism and it's dumb, but the concept is there. It's metaphorical. It's obvious. Just show me a little bit. Let's do something. So the first one ritual is trying to add something at anything, improve yourself just by one thing. Look at your routine and add something to it. Number two.

00:23:00--> 00:23:01

knowledge seeking

00:23:02--> 00:23:16

knowledge seeking is almost built on your craft. It's built on the concept of learning learning. It's built on Elm. Elm is what saved it. The loss of Elm is what NAILED IT AND ELMO hybrid resurface again.

00:23:18--> 00:23:58

Any aspects of reform or any hopes of us standing in our feet again, as an OMA will come through the door, the gate of L. And with O knowledge we're going nowhere. Our number one problem number one with a huge drop down to number two is there's lack of knowledge, proper knowledge, proper knowledge does not come from watching a five minute video on YouTube. It doesn't come from a short three minute doesn't come from that didn't come from a long process of going to massage and learning and discussing and changing mentalities and growing our weight and understanding the thought process and the rationale of how Islam actually works. You're going to run into things that you don't

00:23:58--> 00:23:59

necessarily like or believe in.

00:24:02--> 00:24:35

Normal, or you can just keep on messaging me with questions and I'll continue to ignore them. It's impossible. It's impossible to answer 5000 people's questions when no one willing to learn anything. If there's no willingness to learn, then there's no point you can't figure out this time sitting on your couch while in between the commercials of a Netflix show. You need to actually commit yourself to learning Islam you have to come you have to show up. You have to find one or two lessons a week that you commit to you have to find a course we run courses provide a course that you can actually sign up for and you go through the course and you write that assessment you learn something about

00:24:35--> 00:24:50

your deen you find a scholar find someone that you're willing, you're willing to commit yourself to learn from them over a long period of time 25 years and you're not even close to actually coming anywhere near what you need to spend time doing in terms of seeking knowledge.

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

But everyone's cup of tea everyone's everyone has their own opinion on stuff. And the shift is only as good as how much he will adhere to your way of thinking

00:25:00--> 00:25:31

Seeing the only as good as however the things that you agree to and the moment they say something you don't agree to them, that's not good anymore. So I'm really not even sure what I'm here to do honestly, besides trying to be agreeable with people. Because it doesn't seem that I'm teaching anyone, anything doesn't seem that there's any knowledge being distributed doesn't seem to me to be the case. If I'm saying what you agree with that, amazing, if not, you'll find out the shift. That's not seeking knowledge. That's not learning anything. I am not the standard of knowledge. And you know what, guess what, neither are you. And learning system takes a lot of commitment and time. And

00:25:31--> 00:26:01

there's nothing in my mind, as far as I can tell, that trumps that in terms of priority, I don't know what's higher than that, you'd have to come and tell me what's higher than learning Islam, then learning tells me, you have to make a really good argument to convince me that there's some activity that's more important than learning is time appropriately, to make sure that your kid is gonna need a portfolio. So they can actually have an identity and have a narrative. They don't have to feel embarrassed about the answer that that was offered to them about a question that they asked a simple question. And they got an answer that made no sense to them, and they're embarrassed to actually

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

share it.

00:26:02--> 00:26:28

And that continues to eat away at them in their hearts for years until they become older, and no one has the proper answer. And they leave this time altogether. And then we're called in. And then the cashier, can you do it? No, I can't. No, I can't talk to them. No, I can't, I would love to, I would love nothing more for them to come here. So I can explain things to them. But again, I can't help them after 20 years of being told the wrong thing. I can't help them. And no one can. Because we're not interested in education.

00:26:29--> 00:26:56

Learn something, commit yourself to doesn't matter if you'd be seven or 70 Makes no difference. You find something by someone find a scholar, you find a weekly, you commit, you learn, you take notes, and you and you increase your understanding of Islam, when things don't make sense. You're committed to something really you ask questions until things make sense to you so that you can carry a narrative that is healthy, and you can help others carry a narrative that is healthy as well. Well, well. Number three, volunteerism, the power.

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

He defined where your piece of the puzzle fits, what is it that you're going to do that's going to be left is going to leave a legacy for yourself in this world? How are you going to help the OMA, what is it that you're going to do? In what way? Are you going to volunteer? Oh, is it through your work to pro bono stuff? Is it helping me sell your drawing? I don't know what it is. I don't have an answer for you. If you come and ask me. I will tell you I have no idea. I can barely figure out how I'm going to do it. But you have to figure something out. There has to be some sort of volunteerism, something that you offer the OMA Yes, you go to work everyday you make a living for yourself and

00:27:27--> 00:28:02

your children. There's a gentleman that you get a jail for doing that to making sure that you and your family are not going around asking people for money and that's your wealth is there is Azure Linux beautiful. What are you doing for the OMA? There's more that is needed? Oh reach, for example, Dawa mentorship, what is it that you want to offer others? There has to be something again, it could be seven or seven, it makes no difference. You have to find something, some field, some category some some way to contribute positively for the OMA something that you can offer the community so something that you got time, expertise, wealth, what do you got? You must have something everyone

00:28:02--> 00:28:14

does. Everyone has something to offer. It may not all be at the same level of flashiness. It may not have the same level of profoundness. But it's something and if you're offering what you have, Allah hope Bella can what you have.

00:28:15--> 00:28:22

If you even if it's something simple, but you're offering it Allah subhanaw taala will insert Baraka in it, and it will grow it will become meaningful and offer something for others.

00:28:23--> 00:28:58

These are the three categories I think we should think about. Think about growth, and all three non one of them and all three, they give a small amount of growth in your rituals, something simple, something that you can maintain something you can continue to do for the rest of your life. Even if it's small, think of growth in your knowledge seeking and your end point are you going to learn more about your own Deen, you must understand, understand Islam correctly, you must invest time. And this is not something simple. It's not easy. It doesn't happen overnight, it takes a long time, you must invest something there, and you must invest a little bit in volunteers, and contribution. We're all

00:28:58--> 00:29:33

here to serve the concept of law. In the law. We're here to serve Allah subhanaw taala. Allah does not need service from us. He needs nothing from me at all at all. Which right up front may seem confusing. But he said he want to serve me serve my serve my creation, serve people service them serve the ones around you. So he made sure that his service was channeled through the service of you. So I had to spend time thinking how I'm going to serve you. But you have to spend the exact same amount of time thinking about the exact same thing. I'm sorry, sorry, sorry, you had to do the exact same thing. Not everyone's gonna serve by getting on the member. And by by what by the way,

00:29:33--> 00:29:59

this is very overrated in terms of what actually does. There's way there are many more doors and gateways and channels of service that are much more profound and much more meaningful and lasts longer and get more agility than standing up and speaking into a microphone. We just have to be willing to take the chance to think and search and then find it and then commit ourselves to it. That was what I have to offer you as advice after aid. Yes, you don't feel as connected as you did before. For us, obviously

00:30:00--> 00:30:37

Maybe maybe made a lot of mistakes in the last week that's normal to actually just goes to show you how impactful Allah subhanaw taala was calling is what he said come to me you came to him and you were able to commit for three days and then after the when the when the calling stopped look how lost we got look how lost we got because it's all about Allah subhanaw taala his calling and his love you want it you want to go back and enjoy a little bit you want to wait another 11 months for it no let's even get some of that back. Yes some of that back a little bit of change has to occur a little bit of change think about the categories in which change shows some buy in into this and

00:30:38--> 00:31:10

hopefully inshallah Tata will resume normal activities here at the masjid not not maybe maybe next week and I won't be doing anything this week and still I still have to do things like to wrap up but we'll start some will resume regular activities starting sometime in the middle of this week and the next week and inshallah Tada we have to do some post Ramadan evaluations and debriefing to figure out what worked and was not going to work what we're going to bring back or we're going to bring something new in involved. So in Charlottetown if you have any ideas you're welcome to share with us and you'll hear through our WhatsApp groups and Facebook inshallah when we talk about the resuming
