one week has passed since the end of Ramadan and since we celebrated the day of read,
one month has passed since we finished that month in which we excelled in very many types of worship to Allah subhana wa Taala in which each and every single one of us according to our own ability, we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala through prayer and fasting and charity and data, and the recitation of the Quran and many other deeds. But when we can now we many of us, if not all of us feel a difference in terms of our ibadah the level that we were on in the month of Ramadan in terms of discipline and effort and hard work, it is no longer there. And it's only been one week since Ramadan. The way that we would pray and the way that we would attach ourselves to the Quran to the
book of Allah subhanho wa Taala the way and the frequency in which we gave in charity all of those many acts of worship. And there are many reasons for this but one of those reasons is because the Shakti in and are loose. And because the month of Ramadan is not like any other month, the month of Ramadan is there so that we can train ourselves and discipline ourselves and that those good deeds that we perform in the month of Ramadan, they carry us forth for the rest of the 11 months. Question of Allah the next Ramadan comes upon us, those good deeds that we have done in the month of Ramadan, no matter how few or little they may seem to us, no matter how we can deficient they may be in
within our eyes, all of us should, should understand that those good deeds insha Allah by the permission and the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala are something which have many great benefits. The problem is that when you do good deeds, they are not tangible, in the sense that it's not like money that you see an increase in your bank balance, or it's cash in your hand. It's not like property or gifts that you get calls or houses or something material that you can hold and feel and see and experience. Your good deeds are abstract, they are intangible, your good deeds are recorded in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala and only Allah azza wa jal knows the true worth.
Some of us sitting here may well have performed a single good deed and action in the month of Ramadan, and it will be the source of their salvation on Yom Okayama. That single good deed, that single prayer that single soldier, that single good word or good deed that you did someone else, it will be enough for them to nullify all of their evil deeds, and to expel them or raise them in the levels of Jannah in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala
May Allah azza wa jal make us all from amongst those people. Only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows the true value and the true measure of the good deeds that we do. But one of the things that we find within the Quran and within the Sunnah of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that good deeds, no matter how few of them you may do, no matter how small they may be, so long as that they are sincere for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They have a great many wide variety of benefits. Only Allah subhana wa Taala knows that when you do a good deed, the impact and the reach of the good deed. Sometimes you go when you see a poor person, you give them some supper, or one of
the appeals that we had in this Masjid when we were collecting for very many good causes. You gave perhaps a pound or five or 10 or 100
You don't know the effect of that money, you don't know where it goes, there is no way of placing that one pound coin or that five pound note to its recipients and knowing the benefits that you may bring to that person and to other people who may indirectly be also benefited from that as well. We don't know when we can appreciate this. But rest assured that even though we do not know and we do not understand and we cannot comprehend, it is being accounted by Allah subhanho wa Taala that alonza when john is recording it, and that Allah subhanho wa Taala on the piano will give everyone their full reward and their full Recompense. Sometimes you give sadaqa Will you do a good deed? You
say a good word, you do something for someone else. You benefit them, you benefit their family, you benefit the people around them, maybe you benefit generations to come from that single good deed, from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is that all of that goes back to your skill of good deeds. The Prophet told us on Allah when Allah he was selling them in a hadith in Sahih al Bukhari on the authority of Abu huraira Torah Viola when he said Bernard Rajan on
sadaqa for her job he said the potty Heath What do I have here the Sadek. First back we had to had the foreigner to suit the car the saddle for cuando la harmonica Hammond, la casa de Pon Nabi Sadako. For hora.

party warmer for the hot Dr. Carolyn zanier. Further under her and the story friends in one muscle Dr. Carol honey fella Allah who you're accountable for your time in Morocco hula he told us all Allahu Allah, He will send them the amount one day he made the intention to give Sadako in secret that he would give some charity. And in those days, they will no streetlights there was no way of knowing who you would go and give support to he wanted to go in secret and give charity to the first stranger that he came upon. So he went out that night and he had some money and this man went and he gave some sadaqa it just so happened that that man he gave the challenge he too was a thief. His
purpose for being out that night was to go and steal was to devour the world from the property of others and justly. So when the people walked in this morning the news had spread that there was someone in this community in this town who last night for most of the people he could have chosen, he gave his sword up to a thief. So the man said along Malakal hummed all praises due to Allah, because there was Allah who decreed that he should give the money to the fifth. So he said, I will go again the second night, and I will give sadaqa. So the second it goes out again, and he gives it to the first person that he sees. And it just so happens that he gives his charity to a prostitute.
So that people wake up the next morning, and they say the same thing for all of the people he could have chosen to give charity to, he gave it to a prostitute. So the man again praises Thailand for a third night, he makes the intention that I will go when I will give sadaqa charity. So again, he goes out and he finds the first person that he sees in secret, and he just gives him some money. And it turns out that that man was one of the richest people in that community. So again, the people wake up the next morning, and the news has spread that someone from all of the people he could have chosen, he gave his soda to a rich, wealthy man. This man will be bought and your money will be set
to him for three nights. He did this each day he wants to go and give to the poor, but he ends up giving it to other people. Allah subhana wa tada will say to this man, as for your soccer that you gave to the thief, then because of it, he stopped stealing that night. He didn't steal. And so he saved many people's wealth and their property. And as for that woman that he gave Sadako to and she was a prostitute, she stopped being a prostitute. And so because of that, she was able to preserve her modesty and the modesty of her family. And as for the third person, the rich man that he gave Sadako to that man, when he received the charity, he felt ashamed. He felt ashamed that there were
other people giving charity even though he had more than them. And so he began to give regular charity after that night. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is showing us in this Hadeeth how when you do a good deed, from the good deeds that you do in Ramadan, and outside of Ramadan, you don't know the true worth and the true measure of those good deeds. But Allah subhana wa Taala tells us in the Quran, that those people who do good deeds sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala, then from the greatest benefits that Alonzo john will give and bestow upon them is that they will have a good life.
pleasurable life. Allah subhanho wa Taala says mami lasallian mean record in our own will who mean on Fallon Oceana Hyatt and Paiva whosoever does good deeds male or female, once they have a man, then we will give them a good life they will live a good life. What an agency your home and your home be sunny Malecon, we are Malone. And on the Day of Judgment, when we give them their rewards, they will be rewarded according to the best of the deeds that they used to perform. Because we in our deeds and the actions that we perform, they are of varying levels, some of them are greater in benefit and waiter in sincerity, and others of them are less less so. But from the mercy of Allah
subhanho wa Taala to the sincere believers on the Day of Judgment, he will reward them according to the best of the deeds that they used to perform. And that's why even after the month of Ramadan, even though we may be going through those post Ramadan blues through that period where we now feel slightly, demotivated, slightly dejected, slightly unsure of ourselves because we're no longer at that same level that we were on in the month of Ramadan. Know that Allah subhanho wa Taala. So long as you continue in sha Allah on this path and you continue to the best of your ability, Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward you for the best of the deeds that you use to perform. And that's why
the believer is the one who realizes that after Ramadan, if they are in a slightly better condition than they were even before Ramadan, then that in and of itself is a good sign. It is impossible for each and every single one of us to be like we were in Ramadan for every single day of the year. Nor is it the purpose of Ramadan that after Ramadan you will never sin will you never make a mistake or you never do anything wrong because that too is impossible. But the purpose of Ramadan is to reconnect you to Allah subhanho wa Taala and to refocus your perspective in life to we shift your priorities in this life so that after Ramadan even if you were slightly better than you were before
Ramadan, then inshallah that is something which is a good sign. Because from that which Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us the Hadith and Pudsey from the benefits of doing good deeds is that when you do those good deeds, Allah subhana wa tada loves you. As the Prophet told us on Allah wa alayhi wa sallam in the Hadith and could see that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well Mr. Taco, Robert LA or Abdi vishay, in a habit
early, when I
feel hotter or hebda, there is no good deed that you can perform that is more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala than fulfilling the obligatory duties that you that are obligated upon you. That alarm soldier has made obligatory upon you. The five daily prayers, giving your soccer performing hunch once in a lifetime if you haven't done so, fasting Ramadan as it comes upon you each and every single year, so long as you have the ability to do so. Looking after the rights of those people who have rights upon you, your parents, your spouses, your people around you. These are from the greatest, most beloved deeds that you can perform in the sight of Allah subhana wa Tada. So
therefore if after Ramadan, all you did was pray five times a day whereas before Ramadan, you weren't doing that. That is a sign of goodness. If after Ramadan, now you're giving regular succor, whereas before Ramadan for years, you never gave us a car. That is something which is a good sign. If now you have bettered yourself in terms of your character, in terms of the way that you deal with others in terms of your speech and your conduct, then that is a good sign. That trauma bond benefited you. Ramadan had an impact upon you. When I grabbed the lamb now I feel hotter. And then if you do more and you do more optional deeds, more good deeds, you continue to read more or earn
and pray more prayer and give more sod up and make more data, you will not continue to do so. until Allah subhanho wa Taala loves you. For Allah azza wa jal one of the ways and means of attaining His love is by performing optional deeds, you perform the good deeds and that is something which Allah loves the obligatory deeds, and then he performed optional teams and Allah subhana wa Taala increases in his love for you. The Prophet Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, from the greatest benefits of performing good deeds. And when the sooner Nomi speaks about good deeds, it is a generic term can refer to the smallest thing that you may not think has any relevance or significance or
weight, but in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala it may be extremely valuable. The Prophet Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that from the benefits of performing good deeds even the smallest from among them, is that Allah subhanho wa Taala as a result of them, he makes things easy for you. He removes calamities and hardship from you, as it is in the Hadith available hora de Allah who are unplugged in the telemovie that the Prophet said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, man Sabra who and yesterday
hula hula hoops are in the shader in for Luke serum in a DA for raha, Whosoever would like to Allah subhana wa Taala should respond to the dwellers in times of calamity and difficulty and hardship. The let them make more do in times of ease and happiness. When you attach yourself to Allah subhanho wa Taala throughout the year, not just when it's the time of difficulty and calamity, Allah subhanho wa Taala is more likely to respond to you when you are in need. When you do good deeds, Allah subhanho wa Taala responds, and one of the benefits is that Alonso JAL removes difficulty and hardship from him from amongst the benefits of doing good deeds, as the Prophet told us on Allahu
alayhi wa sallam in the hadith of Muslim imams. Also on the authority of Allah one, that from the benefit of good deeds is that they prevent you from evil. They are a barrier that stops you from disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala. He said, sun Allahu alayhi wa sallam and orajel and jaylan Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for Kala Rasul Allah in the full URL and you saw the blame for either ospa Hassan for call us on Allahu alayhi wa sallam in the Huseyin how matter call. A man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said O Messenger of Allah. There is a man from amongst us within our community, who All night All night All he does is pray. But in the daytime, He's a thief.
By night he prays and worships Allah. By the time he steals, He's a thief. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam selling replied and he said, what you just said, will eventually stop him. The fact that he is attached closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala that he prays that he does good deed, slowly but surely it will stop him, because he will soon come to that realization that those evil deeds are impacting upon his good deeds upon his nightly prayer. And that's why one of the reasons why we don't live up to that same level and standard that we were in the month of Ramadan is because after Ramadan, we sinned more, we go back to our old ways, we go back to being negligent of Allah subhanho
wa Taala and negligent of the rights of others, and negligent of the rights of the Quran. And when we become distanced from Allah subhanho wa Taala that becomes a barrier between us and attaining the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So after the month of Ramadan, one of the greatest things that you can do is to stay away from evil deeds. If you stay away from evil deeds, that is one of the greatest signs that you had an accepted Ramadan, the scholars of the self of the past rahima Humala, they would say that every day that you come closer to Allah, and every day that you don't sin, it is a day of rape. It is a day of celebration, that day that you don't sin and you come closer to Allah,
it is a cause for you to celebrate, because you have come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. From the benefits of doing good deeds, as the Prophet told us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the immense amount of forgiveness that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives to us as a result of those good deeds. Because one of the ways that we attained the forgiveness of Allah azza wa jal is by making Toba and making this the fall and asking for loss of Hannah with the harness forgiveness. But another way in which we also seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala is by doing good deeds. As a large though Intel says in Al Hassan RT, you will hipness he act indeed the good deeds, they remove and
extinguish evil deeds. And as Allah subhana wa Taala says amongst those people, whose Toba he accepts for Allah iica you but then Allah who say him Hassan, and those are the people that Allah will change their evil deeds into good deeds. Not only does he wipe them away, but some of those evil deeds are turned and changed into good deeds. The Prophet told us all along when he was selling them in the hadith of Abu Dhabi, Allah who collected in Al Bukhari and in Sahih Muslim. He said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and por la fille. Yomi Subhan Allah He will be handy he me at Amara heard that La Jolla. When can I Miss Elizabeth dilbar whosoever every single day says Subhana Allah
He will be harmed he 100 times Subhana Allah He will be handed to you 100 times. Allah subhanho wa Taala will expound for them all of the evil deeds, he will nullify all of the evil deeds, even if they are like the form of the ocean, irrespective of the quantity or number and volume. to simply say Subhan Allah He will be handing in 100 times a day, something that won't take you more than 2345 minutes maximum. But every single day, you're conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And every single day you understand what you are saying when you glorify and praise Allah subhanho wa Taala and then you say it 100 times, Allah subhanho wa Taala expounds all of those evil deeds from you. A single
good deed overcomes 1000s if not hundreds of 1000s and millions of years.
We'll deals from the benefits of making STL file from the benefits of doing good deeds is that Allah subhanho wa Taala will not only bless us in this life put on yarmulke Yama He will make easy for them that accounting those people who do good deeds that we serve that are counting on yarmulke Yama will be easier for them. In the hadith of for the for the Allahu agonal, Bihari and Muslim. It is said that a man came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or the prophet or seldom said rather luckier Rajan on Rob bajo faqad Allahumma or Milt for Carla. I mean to me
an econ torajan The Man for All Balibar beginners, for in control for international may sorry, come on. When can I'm not sure on 3g I was to run for Karla hutan. And he heard that Joe was who and Abdi that the Prophet told us and Allahu Allah He was tell them that a person will come and normal for Yama on the Day of Judgment, and Allah subhanho wa Taala will say to him or her, what did you do in the dunya? What are your good deeds? What did you do in this life? That person will reply and they will say, Oh Allah, I never did anything good. Except that I was a person who had wealth money. This was my only good deed, I had money, and I would give it to people as loans. And when the time would
come back for them to repay their loan, if they had the ability to do so, I would collect my money. And if they didn't have the ability to do so they were harder, they were going through financial difficulty, I would forgive them, I would forgive them. So the prophets Allah subhanho wa Taala will say about this man, forgive him. Because Allah subhana wa Taala is more worthy of showing forgiveness and pardoning someone, then this man wants to those people who couldn't pay him back his money. So the good deeds that we perform in Ramadan, and the motivation that we have to continue after Ramadan, is that those good deeds no matter how small they may seem, no matter how
insignificant they may seem to us, we don't know the way they hold in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so we hope in the mercy of Allah azza wa jal and his forgiveness, even if it is a single good deed, as well, Ravi, Allah who would say, verify knew that Allah subhana wa Taala had only accepted a single good deed of mine. And this is a companion who spent decades with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so many years, in preserving his time and fighting for Islam and sacrificing for this time, and supporting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and many years after the death of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, he continued to do so as well, he would
say that if I knew that only one good deed was accepted, for more one of those good deeds, then I would place all of my hope onto that symbol, good deed. We don't know what we do, that Allah subhanho wa Taala accepts, and we don't know which one of those good deeds that we do will have such a lasting impact that our normal pmra may be the source of our salvation. So when shaitan comes to us after the month of Ramadan, and he comes and he whispers to us, and he tells us that we didn't do enough, or that Ramadan is not over. Well, that we need to go back we'll go back to our old ways. We need to be strong enough and disciplined enough to say to him, No, even if we continue to do
something, and it's something small, continuing to read only a single page of the Quran a day, read two optional records a day give something in South Africa just once a week or once a month, but every single one of those good deeds that we continue on, it is in and of itself a sign that we had inshallah huhtala a god and accepted Ramadan, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala as the companions will do after the month of Ramadan, but for months they would make to our to Allah, that he accepts the deeds that they performed in Ramadan. So important was the month of Ramadan in their eyes that they wouldn't just forget Ramadan the day after or a week later, but they would remember it for months on
end and make to our to Allah, that Allah accepts their deeds from Ramadan. So likewise we escolares the region on the special day of German that Allah subhanaw taala accepts our deeds from Ramadan, all of our deeds, our fasting and our prayer and our charity and that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes us from amongst those people who after the month of Ramadan, we are better than we were before Ramadan and it makes it an accepted Ramadan and he allows us to witness many more Ramadan in which we continue to excel and come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala barakallahu li walakum Philip oni will soon one of our annual Jacobi mefi him mlir to LACMA Allah Mantis marone onestop federal nahi

From the Delilah was shockula tofield Tina Annie, Masha Allah Allah in La La Jolla la sharika lahu talim Alicia Annie, or shadow Nana V and I will see you then I'm Mohammed Abdul Rasul Allah with one
Allahumma salli wa sallam Mubarak era he was. He was one who seldom at the Sleeman kathira mabank. One of the greatest ways of attaining good deeds. And one of the greatest ways of attaining those deeds that you don't see its ramifications and implications. But Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward you for in full on your monitor Yama is when you work for the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And your remains of goodness, and you spread that goodness to others. What we did last week in the park last Friday, and you're married when we had 10s of 1000s of people in a single place. And the vast majority of those people are not people from this Masjid, or members of this congregation,
because we only have three, four or 5000 people on a single Friday. But those other 10s of 1000s of people who also turned up on that single day, it is something which insha Allah tala, for those people who are involved, even in the slightest way, even if it was just by giving a pound towards that pause, or whatever that they did, you shall allow Tyler it is something that they will see on Yom Okayama. That is one of the greatest ways, and it was one of the greatest forms of continuous childhood. So the progeria when you do something good, and that godness spreads, and you don't even know how far it will spread, and how many people it will affect and how many generations, it may
continue for. And so on this pleasure day of Friday, one of the first juveniles that we have after either and after Ramadan, I want you to think about this very seriously, where you can do to help others and to help this Masjid, in facilitating this message of Islam and spreading it to others. Some of you have the ability to volunteer, some of you have skills and talents that you can share. Some of you have the financial ability to give, some of you have other things that you can contribute. But each and every single person in this congregation, no matter how old, or how young, male, female, whatever your condition may be, whatever your status may be, every single person has a
part to play. And that is what made the companions such an amazing generation, that all of them will contribute. And even though we only know the names of maybe a handful, or a few dozen or a few 100, there were many 1000s of other companions who are part of that community, their reward is with Allah subhanho wa Taala. They to have that status and that honor of being companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, it is from the greatest types of had a man of loss, that you see all of this goodness around you and you're in the midst of it, and you're a part of it, but you don't partake. You see everyone else going forward and everyone else doing things. And even though you
have the opportunity and you have the opportunity time and time again you stand back, it is one of the West Trump's of shavon. So now that we finished this month of Ramadan, and you have another year until the next Ramadan, don't let it be something which you don't feel with anything that is good until next Ramadan comes from today. Start whatever you can do. And even if it's not with this Masjid for you, yourself, and your individual capacity, as a community, as a family, wherever you can do, it is one of the greatest forms of charity. Some of us only have the ability to look after our children, give them a good upbringing. Make sure that they are good citizens and people who are
constructive to their communities. Even that is something which has a great reward in the sight of Allah. For the Prophet told us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that a person will come on Yom Okayama. And they will be presented with their good deeds, and they will recognize them, they will see them and they will recognize their prayer and their fasting and their charity, and all of the good deeds that they did. But then Allah azzawajal will say to that person, look over there, those good deeds belong to you as well. And so they will look and they will see those good deeds, but they won't recognize them. So will the sale they will say Oh Allah, these do not belong to me. These deeds are
not mine, I never did this. But Allah subhana wa Taala will reply, and he will say, these are the deeds of your children, you have a share of the reward your children, your grandchildren, your great grandchildren, but because you planted that seed, that reward goes back to you. And that's why everything that we do, all of the good that we do, eventually that reward goes back generation before generation until it comes to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And that's why he has the greatest station in this oma because all of the good that we do, he was the one who by the permission of Allah guided us towards the goodness, be a part of that legacy. So that when you do
God and others benefit, it is something which ultimately you do for yourself and you will benefit a normal piano. We ask Allah subhanaw taala that he gives us the ability to be people who do continuous charity, and people who spread goodness and we benefit from the goodness on Yom Okayama May Allah subhanaw taala bless us and our families, and may He reward us and our families and forgive us and our families will larger which will show His mercy upon those of our brothers and sisters who passed away in the month of Ramadan. And before the macaron and after the month of Ramadan, we ask Allah subhanaw taala that he allows us to witness many more
Ramadan's and that we take benefit from those months and that Allah subhana wa tada makes us from amongst those people who our deeds in this life will be a source of salvation and successful them in the next life.
