ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada he gave every single one of us
an opportunity of our lifetime to be able to witness this Ramadan. Many of us we entered Ramadan with a lot of ambitions. Many of us we entered Ramadan saying I will do this and that
I will finish this many neurons, I will do this and that this many raka this much Southpaw, this much all of these things, there are great ambitions. But as the reality of life sets in workplace demands only increase in Ramadan.
Everything just happens in Ramadan and it throws you off track of what you had originally intended.
But here's the beauty of our religion, that Allah subhanho wa Taala he does not evaluate you and I
on how the process went through.
But our evaluation is as the Hadith says I'm a little bit how Artemia
your actions are going to be judged that oh you started Ramadan with a great intention, Masha, Allah, how did you end it?
If in between, there was like ups and downs, some turbulence, you went off track, no problem.
We still have seven more days to go.
So this message initially over here is for those who had ambitions,
but they were not able to fulfill that many ambitions that they had. They wanted to read books but they couldn't they want. Do not give up. Because you still have seven mornings you still have a very highly likelihood
With that, you may have another Leila to cuddle, you have a high likelihood that you're going to have a little cuddle. You don't know if last night was truly related to cover, there were signs with Allahu Allah Allah really knows. The reality is it's only five nights.
I mean we all need to work only five nights. I mean 10 Preferably but five if you really can't, to make sure that you hit the mark.
And any of these five nights could make it or break it for us.
The next point and this is a message for many of us that when Ramadan comes we build new habits.
Some conversations in the corridor and out on the 48 they're like Ramadan, Hatha Menudo let Ramadan finish then ajeeb Ramadan, your Allah subhanaw taala is the same in Ramadan outside of Ramadan.
So what we want to use this Ramadan as an opportunity to build minimum three habits sorry, maximum three habits, you want to build only three habits. So you want to evaluate yourself and you want to say
all right, I got into Ramadan, what are the three things my three TKE takeaways from the month of Ramadan that I will hold on to until next Ramadan
so that when next Ramadan comes and Allah grants us that opportunity, then you have a higher foundation when you entered the Ramadan, then in that Ramadan, you build another five or three or five habits and you say I'm going to hold on to this they will become like
it doesn't matter where I am which part of the world I will never leave these habits.
From amongst these three habits you can choose whatever you want some of the recommended habits from the southern facade. And these are the you know, they call them the MPLS minimum performance requirements. You know minimum performance level that you need MPLS there are certain habits that have to be your MPLS I aim for you to enter the category of mean
from a Muslim who submits to men who has firm believer and his actions reflect his statement of Islam. There are certain habits that the ruler might have recommended
and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well.
One of that is the dua that we make every night and pm.
Allah Who loves Oakland it Loudwater who are not a lady or a trough and her Oh Allah grant us the reasons
that they will feel of reciting Quran.
Anna Elaine in the middle of the night with a trough and a half, and on the smaller portions of the day, I'll watch Hillary you'll be gone. And that recitation should be as such that you are pleased with my recitation.
So one of the habits that you may want to pick up
during the month of Ramadan if you haven't even started no problem. Pick up Quran pick up a must have and do not read more than five lines in the next seven days, five lines every day.
Don't read more than five lines. If you've not picked up the most happened this month of Ramadan it's not too late. Pick up the most have and start with five lines, five lines every day. But then you have to promise to yourselves that these five lines
even if I'm in the hospital
they're almost like a full unmin that I will not leave these five lines
and if you hold on to that you will finish the Quran.
By the time you come to the next Ramadan.
Now those five lines will turn into 15 next year
because you will bump it up and those 15 will bump you will bump it up next Ramadan and if Allah gives us they will turn into two pages. But then you're reading two pages dealing the problem as we jump in and we're like two Jews one day mashallah we haven't recited the Quran throughout the year. So use the bulk of this Ramadan the remaining days to build this habit and say you know what, I'm only going to read five five lines that's it.
And don't fall traps of shaitan bus it's not what I saw just little bit read more
shutdowns I know No, no man, but I'm gonna go and read more. Go for it. You are building for habit.
There's a difference. You're building for keeping this habit. That's number
one. Number two is the habit of the Sooners, whether you believe that there are 10 Sooners or 12 sinners, it doesn't matter the 12 Sooners Urawa team
those Sooners that are after every salam to before Fajr for the for Zohar or two before the hurt depending on which opinion you follow and to after the war. And then you have to Maghrib and the two arratia. Right. These are 12 or 10 or whatever, if you stick to them. These are basically your failsafe mechanisms preventing you from ever missing your fund.
They're basically a barrier. They're like flood gates before the flood of shaytaan comes the Sooners come and protect you.
Right it's the Sunnah that goes first before your fuddled and if you can add nothing to it, that's great. If those of you that are already as soon as you add Nephal
you add to another maraca to that, but these 10 or 12 These should never leave you
and the way they are performed is as how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned the Atlanta Journal GUI with a comma Carville don't turn your houses into graveyards to have those are like how do you turn your house in a graveyard? He said that you do not pray your Sooners in your houses.
So the sooner to pray the sooner is that when we are finished from Salatin, Ferb, we leave from the masjid and pray the Sunnah is in the house.
So you revive the act of praying in the house. And your house also has the baraka of that prayer. The Sunnah is not to pray the Sunnah as in the masjid, by consensus, it's so that you go out and you pray. Now if you're traveling and it's something like that, no problem, you can pray your sooner if you're afraid that you're not going to do it. For example, you're like, Okay, I'm gonna go home, grocery list is gonna come shopping is going to come, this is going to come that is going to come washing machine problems, all of these then in that case, pray your sadness in the masjid, because you're building for habit.
Building for habit. Third thing
you should add to your routine, some form of education for your knifes not for your family, not for your you know, any, it's for you.
You must grow as an individual we must grow spiritually every day
and create a curriculum or create something that you want that till next Ramadan, these are the five books that I'm going to read. And this is not a passive reading, that you have your cup of chai in your hand and you're like, Well, I'm reading. It's a reading that is active reading. So you have the book and you've got your notes, and you're trying to learn if you can couple that many of the books have been taught by scholars in audio. So for example, the book the beginning of guidance by Imam Ghazali, there is audio explanations in English of that book. So you can pick up that book, beginning of guidance, listen to the audio tape of the chef, read the book, get your notes and get a
spiritual plan for your growth daily. Those of you that work in corporate you all know that CEOs and people who are in the upper echelon, they read avidly but more importantly, their learners. They learn about their dean,
nothing they learned about their world and corporate world, we need to learn about our DNS in a consistent, persistent manner. 20 minutes, 15 minutes, wherever it is, it doesn't matter. Whatever you want to pick, pick a book, pick us a subject that you like. And you add that to your daily routine. These three things if added, you will find yourself by next and I'm Alana, completely different person.
And as I've said before, spiritual growth does not happen by coming to the masjid and praying 100 numbers in one day.
Spiritual growth happens by spending 20 minutes a day for the rest of the year, every single day. That adds to your spiritual growth and, and consistency. And you will not see the results for the first six months.
You're going to be like YAHWAH what happened? As is the case when a person goes to the gym for three months, four months most people taper off at four months because they don't see results. Well everybody reacts to your workout in gym differently. But there is guarantee that if you consistently persistently go to the gym, 20 minutes a day or 30 minutes a day. For one year you will see results
but they won't be immediate. Like why
As is the case of your development, whether it is Quran, whether it is your Sooners, or whether it is your spiritual journey in terms of growing as a Muslim.
Now I speak to the fathers now
as a father, it is your whole and sole responsibility.
How is the spiritual growth of your family?
That's a why jib. Not Oh, I can skip this and that when it comes to the risk provisions, Allah subhanaw taala says yes, it's a Weijun but then Allah He even tells you less Alucard is conditional.
We don't ask you I if you provide them the basics. That's it. That's the basic requirement. We're not obligating you to go beyond and bring the best and the most comfortable life for your children and your family. No notice Zuko whom what year can we give this to you and to them.
But when it comes to your spiritual growth, growth, Allah subhanaw taala says, Paul fossa can save yourselves.
Who unphysical you gotta save yourself first, boo, fossa forsaken WA, Alico, Nara and your families you have to save them from hellfire. That is a wajib. It's a direct command of Allah.
So the fathers, you have to be the role models in the house.
It's not enough that you send your sense on to an Islamic school or to a Hibbs program. And we go around saying, Oh, my son is a Hafez, you can't even recite Surah Al Fatiha.
These are cultural norms that we need to end.
Islam is not cultural. I mean, on the Day of Judgment, you will be as much asked as your son How was your Salah
How was your spiritual Fatiha in the Salah. We have people that are very triggered happy when it comes to their WhatsApps and having fatwas left, right and center pasting stuff. Those same individuals if you ask them, Can you even recite Surah Al Fatiha without a mistake. Because that's what Allah is going to ask you. He's not going to ask you whether you're able to search a fatwa and paste.
So concern yourselves with that, that concerns you.
Because that is what Allah is going to ask you. And I'm just here as a reminder, you want to take heed Bismillah, you don't want to take heed, you will have to stand in front of Allah on your own, not with anyone else.
There was a woman at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Before I say this, there are some brothers standing at the back again last time, this is going to be a bigger job. If I can ask everybody to make us up. You can move up or stand up, it's easier, just make a sofa. So we'll give them space for the people at the back.
There was a woman at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in Makkah. Her name was ra a PA. She was not a Muslim.
But she was like a known
example within the Arabs. You know, sometimes you have someone within a community or society and that person because of their consistent behavior, despite the fact that that behavior is not very appropriate, but they keep on doing that same mistake again and again, again, and then he gets known by that mistake.
So this law,
right, if I didn't, I'm gonna have no cab. She had this habit that she would bring all these women to her house, and they would sit there and they would take these wounds, and they would spin it and they would form it into these that will involve and then she would bring all the other woman is that can you cut it up and make it back into the original state.
Alright, so she would do rustle of those boots, they will bring like sheet wool. And this you would put it on this, you know, this the spinning wheel and they would spin it turn it into wool balls. But then she would give that to the other woman and they would go and spread it apart and put it back into the same the way it was early. So everybody thought that was a really weird thing for her to do. But she kept doing that. So she became an example of stupidity within the Arabs. She became an example of stupidity within the Arabs. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala he says
and these are the verses that we want to quickly look at Allah says by our ministry thorndon regime in Allah higher more or builiding
Allah subhanho wa Taala commands all of us to be Joe
I don't hold on to justice. There are multiple meanings with the word added over here. One of the predominant ones is Adam.
Allah commands you that when it comes to the matter of justice, you got to stand up.
What is but usually on seeking justice, we may sometimes cross boundaries. The law is like, you take your justice but you take it with your son.
You don't do smear campaigns again against individuals. You don't chastise you don't badmouth you are seeking justice. But you have to do it with the utmost level of sun.
What he does is in Aruba, and usually when we get occupied with our justice and our cause, and protecting ourselves, the focus becomes me and when the focus becomes me our own relatives are affected.
So Allah is that in that process make sure that you're also taking care of your relatives
you're giving to them you're taking care of them when he died he did a photobomb well yeah and and fascia he went in one career well buddy, and Allah openly tells you that when if you don't get your justice, then do not resort to vain talks Basha Well, Monica and things that are disliked by Allah subhanaw taala What about me and oppression oppressing other people? You are a newcomer to the Quran, Allah reminds you so that you may take heed. Allah warns you and admonishes you so that you may take heed Take heed what what oh phobia de la he either I had to him and fulfill the promises of Allah when you make those promises. Ramadan is a promise.
fulfill the promise of Ramadan
when I tell you a man Abba Toki the HA and don't break your promises after Ramadan you said Allah will do this I will do this I will do this and as soon as the Ramadan leaves, you don't have anybody coming for Fajr you don't have anybody coming for Russia. So you've made those mashallah today Masjid was half fold in federal
half fold today. It was amazing to see the masjid half full.
All of us that were there in Fudger we gotta make a promise to ourselves man. That Allah I was here for this budget or I'll be here for the next budget. And when Ramadan is gone, I will try my best. And the only way we'll be able to fulfill that is when you create a buddy system.
You tell somebody else Listen, man, you come to come to pleasure. Let's hold each other accountable. I want to I want to I the ability with taqwa, hold one another and do you know partner in one another for things that are been good good deeds and Dukkha the matters of Taqwa. And that that way, you will still have the mustards half full every single day, but that it lifts the entire community, not just you, you become a source of uplifting the community, you become a source of bringing baraka to this community. So it's not just you coming to the masjid. It's the burden of that community that you bring when you come here. Then Allah says,
Welcome to Allah Hi, Lee Konka Villa and you have made Allah subhanaw taala and given shorty that Oh Allah, we're going to fulfill these commands. I'm a Muslim and I'm going to fulfill this in Hola Hola. Hola. Mamata alone. Allah is like I know what you're doing. Your actions Allah is fully aware of, then Allah gives the example of this woman
for us to remind us for the month of Ramadan, what at the Quran, okay, Latina call that cause la ha, don't be like this rah etha that would she would you know, she would turn that entire rule and she would put it on a spinning wheel and turning into a wool ball. And when it was done, she would knock out that because law she would rip it apart. mean by the fall within after that had become a form line, a thread
and Carson tetrahedron, Amen. Come on Boehner comenta Hakuna on Mattoon here. Bam. In Omaha, you take promises. And your only concern is oh, this group may gain more power than this group.
And you break your promises with Allah just because you want superiority of one over the other.
Allah says to that and listen to this for everyone in Nehemiah blue como Allahu Allah will test you with that. This test is true. The test of power is true. That is why we are required to read sudo because the test of power is what is going to the job is going to come and he's going to screw us over with that. You're not going to have any power in front of him but we will be tested with his power. When you see that he commands the sky to bring the rain down. Asked the earth to bring the gold and silver out what is going to happen to our today if you give $100 gives me you know when you come to the masjid you will get to see your position. You will have a lineup
power is a fifth now.
And then Allah says, What do you buy in hola como mal Tiana, TEMA quantum fee hit up telephony and these differences Allah says on the Day of Judgment Allah will settle these differences in the matters that you used to debate and argue about.
No sha Allah Who ledger hola como Mata Anwar Haida if Allah had wanted, we would all have the same views and opinions. We would all be one, we will not have any differences.
What I can what Allah says, but you will the Luma in your SHA, well, yeah, do you mean yeah Sha. Allah is the one who chooses to guide whoever he wishes and he chooses to misguide whosoever he wishes. The question happens. Oh, why if Allah is choosing my goodness, guidance and guidance and what what's up with me? Why should I even bother Allah is like this guidance and Miss guidance is because while atossa alone, alone, I'm consumed damn alone. This this test of Miss guidance or guidance is all because Allah is going to ask you about the actions you did in this dunya every single one of us is going to use alone we will be asked on the day.
So don't be like that woman who breaks the promises. Don't be like those Muslims who come in Ramadan, and they're gung ho about it, walk away with one or two or three habits and build those habits throughout the year so you can come back to next Ramadan even stronger BarakAllahu li como sal Allahu Matata Allah, Mohammed ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam.
Hello Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam.
Before we begin insha, Allah,
the Salah, just couple of things that are necessary for us to mention sha Allah, as we've come to the end of Ramadan. And we begin the next chapter in sha Allah after Ramadan, there are lots of plans in terms of creating programming that are curated for different segments of the society and the community in sha Allah, if Allah by those programs, we want to be able to run those programs with the best level of exon
with the best level of exon, and for that, we are going to need some support on the 27th. Tonight, we're going to be reading a smaller juice, ie half the juice, but there is going to be some presentation that I want to do to be able to explain what needs to happen. Because when I come here, and I see the possibilities, but the lack of initiatives, it just makes me feel like we have so many things we can give to the community. Collectively, it's not just me alone, but I want to be able to drive those initiatives. And in order for me to be able to drive those initiatives, we have have a very small target of $8,000 a month. It's a very simple target, we need 80 people to donate $100 a
month for the next 12 months. If you go to the website, you're going to see a Category A third category, it says programs and youth or youth and programs, either one or if you go to that third category, sign up all we need if you can donate more hamdulillah but we need at least 80 people to commit to that so that we can start offering consistent programming, being able to bring some external speakers commit to some conferences and stuff like that, but all of that so that those those funds are purposely driven only for the sake of programming education of the community.
Insha Allah the second part, and this is a message for all of us month of Ramadan is a great opportunity for you to participate in the overall expenditure of this Masjid. Like you know in any other message during the month of Ramadan expenses rise. So on your way out if you haven't you know, this is you don't you don't know if that one sadaqa may lead you to 700 times 70 Some billions of rewards that $1
And you may not get that chance again. So in the last 10 nights or these nights, if you want please on the way out as you're going if you can donate for the expenditure of this month, so we're able to provide the best services in sha Allah Bismillah that would go along when we ask Allah subhanaw taala that he accepts from us our salawat and our TM and we ask Allah subhana wa Tada that he grants us the ability to connect with Quran We ask Allah subhana wa Taala that he safeguards the Iman, of every single person that is here until the day of judgment. We ask that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala protects our youth from fitna and protects our youth from tests and trials.
In tribulations we ask that Allah subhanho wa Taala boosts their Iman and solidifies their Iman and become makes them like mountains in front of the test of fitting of this dunya we ask that Allah subhanaw taala sends his choices blessings on W Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allahumma salli wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, we ask that Allah subhanho wa Taala grants every single one of us a true understanding of his message, and grants us the true love of Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in our hearts and illuminates our law, our paths and our decisions in our lives with the light and Nora of Quran and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is love. And
we ask that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala grants every single one of us will Afia and what Touka and grandsons taqwa and Allah Subhana Allah forgives all those who have passed away, forgives the relatives of those who are in Kabul, Allah subhanaw taala turns their cover into a garden of paradise and protects them and raises their ranks in these last days. And give Sophia to every single one of us who have lost their parents to be one adult and saw their home the other Allah, the pious son who prays for them or the pious daughter who prays for them a call Lokali had our cell Fetullah Holly welcome Marissa in in Muslimeen festival Pharaoh for in who will have Rahim Joaquim
