A khutbah on the state of our mosques and the need for more etiquette and manners in them.
In Alhamdulilah namaha wanna stay in
the villa in surely unforeseen our citm Elina Maria de la la la woman Yulin Fela hi Deanna.
Wash Allah Allah hi Lola wash the hula shriek Allah. Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was happy he was seldom
in higher and higher the ticket
was higher on howdy howdy Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was shadow moving data to Hakuna
Matata Hakuna Matata tintina
all praise and thanks belongs to Allah the Most High we thank him and we seek His help and aid and ask Him to forgive us and we seek His protection from the evil of ourselves and the sins that we commit. Indeed, who serve Allah guides no one can lead astray and whosoever allow leads astray no one can guide and I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah Hello, then Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is leaving messenger. The best of speech is the book of Allah. And the best of guidance is the guidance of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the worst of religious matters are those that are innovated, and every religious innovation is a bit every dice
misguidance and every misguidance will be in hellfire.
Allah subhanho wa Taala allows nations societies communities to prosper
if you have specific elements, conditions.
And these conditions
come from the fact that they have an authority a leadership
that looks after their affairs and they listen to it
comes from the fact that they cooperate with each other to achieve their common goals
comes from the fact that they have the good manners and character to be able to build a society that can stand and prosper. And it can be a model that can attract others to it.
And every once in a while, it's good to have a hot bar that will be like a mirror that reflects some of our behavior shortcomings.
So that we can improve the vanilla
hamdulillah there is a lot of good in our communities, but at the same time, there's a lot to be desired mistakes
that stemmed from the fact that either we do not know
or we forgot what we know. Or we forgot how important these things are. So we need to be reminded.
And we'll focus in Sharla today
on the masjid
as an institution as a space
and the respect that we owe to it
We adapt some of the adapt, that we should observe while we are in the masjid
that reflect our flaws,
and really reflect our strength and weakness as a community or a sub community.
First of all I talked about that no community can prosper without authority
that they respect that can organize their affairs. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran,
Rasulo de la Marina
obey Allah His Messenger. We're laying foundations here in
there, we'll be talking about some specific examples. But these are important to understand, obey Allah obey the messenger.
And then he says only the people of authority among you.
People want been entrusted with your affairs. So they are guiding you wanting these affairs.
You'd have to listen to them. And the loss of Hannah was emphasized that is specific, because the Arabs were very rebellious
at that moment,
and they resented the fact of having someone else be on top that they would listen to
their anti establishment in a sense.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to bring to their attention and ours as well they futile not listen.
As long as they don't command you to do Masia, but if you do not listen to your leaders, you do not prosper.
So I we must it
represents or has any people will have a portion of this.
That they are people who, in a sense, not complete as the halifa but they have been entrusted to run the affairs of the masjid.
And if we all do not listen to them, whatever missed it, I'm not only talking about this place, what are the mysteries you're in,
specifically in affairs that are aimed to organize the masjid
and its affairs, parking
where you can go How are you can enter from regulations. If we do not come together to respect this, we will not have a Masjid.
If we reject all of their commands, or all of their regulations, all of their recommendations, we will not have institutions. If we disrespect.
These institutions that are supposed to represent us we are only weakening our own selves, because we're weak on our own, stronger as a collective.
I'll come back
to this point.
We also always missed it as a space.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us in many Hadith that
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says
that a person who is waiting for the sun
will receive the blessing of the prayer of the angels of Allah.
As long as you're sitting in the masjid,
the angel of Allah or praying for you making dua for for you. He says madam you defeat him and
as long as he does not introduce he or she introduce harm in it.
As long as they do not introduce a sin in it will continue to receive this from Allah subhana wa Taala. But when they harm other people, and knowing other people, or sin in domestic it stops.
Once a man during the hot cocoa like this comes into the mystery
has stepped over people's necks.
Meaning is making his way through the roads.
And the prophets of Allah is in them notice that
and by Mike making his way he's disturbing this person and that person. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam stopped him and said ageless. Sit wherever you are.
You are disturbing people and you're late.
That is he stopped his hook but you tell him you disturbing others
you disturb others in the message and you harm them.
You are really violating the message of them as did what it was built for.
You stood out from your home turn has an ad from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But when you disturb and harm others, that stops
and you'll be burning since.
He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also in another incident to illustrate
why the mustard was built. Man comes
once looking for his red camel
in the messenger where's my red camel, listen to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What did he do?
And you know that the Prophet does was gentle.
The prophets will always gonna be gentle. But he's teaching there that man and also lesson he says once
Gemini who's the one who's the owner of de la la, me, you will never find it.
In massage lm to Madhava, the messages will not build for this.
The messages will not build for this.
What were they billed for in that commentary? What were they billed for? For the nickel? Voila.
They were billed for that. He says so in another Hadith, the famous Hadith. When a person comes in, he urinate in the masjid and I'll be a nomad does not know any better. He comes and urinate at the profits all of a sudden because he doesn't know was very gentle and merciful with him. Don't interrupt him. Don't say anything bad to him, he bring him brought him and he says in a massage.
It says this pollution contamination is not suitable for domestic why Nima Haley decree law he was selected.
It is for the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala reading the Koran
for saga, this is what the message is built for.
So there is a specific respect that you owe once you want to enter the masjid. You have to remember this is not my house, this is not their house. This is a house that belongs to a loss of Hannah who What? I should respect it and Treat it as such.
do we treat them like that? Do we have these inside the house of a loss of data?
When you come out from your home,
before I come to specific examples when you come out of your home and you want to go to tomorrow
and you're thinking about why am I coming to Salatu Juma not just simply out of habit.
Just simply out of habit, or this is what I do every week. Let's get it over with not that.
But you can actually get a lot of rewards from it.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says you know if you do specific things before you come into Friday, you come early, you obey, you come close to the Imam. And one of the condition he says was
he says he listens attentively, does not engage in idle speech.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says that with every step he takes will be like with the reward of an entire year fasting and praying.
every step that you take to come to tomorrow would be the reward of entire year of fasting.
But you have to stop low
meaning in domestic law when you're listening to the Imam all of us should know by now. It's haram for you to talk. How long for you to give Salah how long for you to respond with Salaam haram would you to play with your phone? I said before people playing with their phones. How long for you to do this?
How long for you to nap someone shared with a joke with them?
You have to listen to what the Imam is talking about attentively. If you want that rule from Allah subhanho wa Taala whether we're talking about the man or the woman,
this is how it should be.
Is it because how we are in the masjid in the house of Allah subhanaw taala tells us a lot about our own manners. And whether we can be example to other nations or not to non Muslims are not.
Whether the masjid is a welcoming environment or not. Are we turning people away because of it?
Consider as an example
This is not something that I've seen.
This is brothers and sisters who come to me and say can you talk about this?
brothers who are standing outside in the call on behalf of the administration of the masjid
when you come into the MS did you have to listen to them? Not only common sense
but religiously. You have to listen to them because they're standing there to make your life easier. Imagine if there's nobody to organize outside. Will they just leave us to ourselves would be punching each other outside
but they're standing there in the cold for you.
Now they tell me we get disrespected every week.
Miss mistreated every week.
Some people yell at us. Some people accuse us. Some people insisted this obey what we tell them take the space know that other space. They insult us sometimes some others say if you don't give me what I'm on. I'm leaving. I'm going to another mistake.
He says every week we have to deal with this. And it hurts.
What are we supposed to do with this? Now ask yourself you're coming out of your from your home to hurt another Muslim.
This is what do you want to do? Is this
doesn't even make sense. You're coming toward has to not or say
you want to be happy with you're unhappy with you? Do you want to waste the reward of your Juma just because you want to fight with someone in the parking lot?
You think they doing that? Because they hate you?
And if you feel that why don't you take their principal their position their space one week and see how hard it is? We have to thank them,
not for them and insult them. We have to thank them and say me Allah reward you or at least
If you cannot attend don't harm. If you can say something nice, don't say something awful.
logically, we have to listen to them because they're organizing our life our message.
So the panelists Think about it. Every time we go into a mess, did we insult each other and make our life difficult? Some of us will stop coming.
Some of us will hate this space, because this is what we find every time and Is this what you want to do?
And this is indeed,
if we do it and persist in doing it from our Sundancer Vila, from turning people away from the path of Allah subhana wa tada and I'll talk more about this inshallah, in the second photo holy cow that was Dr. olalia.
hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Hamden, Catherine Pavan, gotta compete.
Also your Salah, marsudi, Mohammed, Ali Ali, he was, he was seldom
some of the principles that I want to also emphasize
is the respect especially in the masjid, that we owe to the Quran.
And we owe to the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
You know, the
Quran, Allah who wants to come to the moon when the Orion is being read? What are you supposed to do? Talk
or listen attentively, so that you may attain Allah subhana wa tada
whenever the Quran is being read, the respect if you really remember that these are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala you do one of two things. You either stay in your place and you listen or you leave, because you don't want to be caught talking while loss of power what
words are being recited
that's disrespectful. Imagine yourself be standing before a lot of lies talking and you're talking at the same time.
And it's the same thing with the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
Yeah, you ballerina Amanullah.
All you who have, Don't raise your voice is
the voice of the Prophet
Don't raise your voices above his voice. the wide end of the eye says and
your actions become invalid while you do not know.
There is a few do it after Allah told you if you do it and you keep doing it, your actions
may become invalid. Something good that you have done may turn to become invalid. Yeah but has no reward for it because you doing this sin
when I'm so happy that he cried, because his voice was loud naturally he says I'm gonna go to hell definitely. Because I'm loud. By nature. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, No, you are the people of gender not of the people of hellfire.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam has passed away.
But the LMA have said that raising your voice when he's had he has been read is like raising your voice. When he was alive and talking subtle law it was in my medic.
Before he sits to read the Hadith, he they put on perfume, best clothes and sits and reads the Hadith of the Prophet sollux. He says I want to honor it.
I want really to honor it. And he wants to convey this honor to the people who are around him. And if someone talks about
he'd be rough with him.
And he says this could be included
in that. Don't raise your voice over the voice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. hamartomas he did the same thing
is if he speaks if he gives the Hadees and people start talking, he does I'm afraid they'd be included in that.
And he said they have to listen to the Hadith when it's being read.
Like they're listening to the Quran.
Now imagine yourself
going to MSDN and throwing into
because we know that in the Salatu Juma not supposed to talk we know that by now.
But when there's a Hanukkah taking place
and you're talking
the mom or whoever is discussing the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you're talking and you're loud.
That is included in it.
Because you're raising your voice above the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and not only doing this, You're disturbing other people
for coming to listen.
I specifically received this complaint from the sisters
whenever there's a hell of a lot, but at least what I have received whenever there's
there will be some sisters persistently talking,
being loud, distracting others on the phone,
preventing them from listening to the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu.
an honor to have Ray to be included in this
Aren't you afraid? And I'm talking to the men as well. If you go to
any other Masjid, and you go in, and you're loud, and you're distracting, and the hell is going on, aren't you afraid that you're pulling people away from listening to what saves them? What benefits them
and this is what I said is
to be a block to turn people away from the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala
people have left their home and they could be doing anything else they
could be doing anything. They are just because they want to listen to something. And I and it's explanation had eaten. It's an explanation. But you come
with this regard for the mission of the message in this regard for what is going on this regard for your brother and your sister and what they want to do. You annoy them, you stop them from learning, you make them upset.
And all of that is sin upon sin.
A lot of struggle and stability law right turning people away from the path of Allah as an independent, serious sin
in an arena.
It says those who disbelieve and turn people away from the path of Allah we will increase in punishment upon punishment because of the corruption they introduce. These are two crimes, they this will lead and they turn people away.
In the path of a lot because a person could just disbelieve, but not turn anyone away, and it's really going to himself. But if he just believes and turns people away from the path of Allah,
Allah subhanaw taala says we will give him punishment
So it's an independent crime.
And the misdeeds as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said and recorded into Haiti, were not built primarily for socialization.
You can socialize, but at the right time,
the right amount, the proper way. Listen to all the prophets, a lot of his companions used to do it.
It is after the prophets a lot of them would sit and read, remember Allah Subhana, WA tada and the crew of Allah,
the companions would do the same thing until
then they would pray. Now they're done with a bada. He said, Now they will sit together and the properties in their midst. And they'll remember some interesting stuff they used to do in their daily recount. So they would laugh. And he sallallahu wasallam would smile. It has its place for brothers or sisters, but it's appropriate place. It does not rival or contradict the Battle of Allah subhana wa Taala.
You don't come at a time when there was
one at a time and there is
and you are knowing others and distract them and earn a sin because of it.
So I'm telling you, if you do that, and Obama no DACA and
I'm guaranteeing to coming back with since to your home, it's better that you stay home
for the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala because it reflects who you are, and your manners.
And Subhanallah it's not only the young who are doing it to whether we blame them as the old as well.
And they are persistent and stubborn and told when you give them advice, they will start to panel I don't I cannot imagine this. Somebody comes and reminds you and he says stop something else is happening. Respect and they say no and they persist in their mercy.
That is why you will like Baraka in your life.
That is why Allah subhanho wa Taala me blood here.
Because this is how you're treating the hadith of His Messenger sallallahu is, this is how you're treating it. This is how you're treating your brother and sister. So
don't be surprised if Allah sends you a test Don't be because you're earning that. Every time you come in, you're sitting and You're disturbing others you're earning that and you're turning people away from domestic
Why are you coming this is your mission. So panel lights and gamma to have a message if
you don't, you don't realize it but it's you take it for granted.
Until a lot takes it away from you. You have to really thank Allah subhana wa tada
to have a place where you can come and you can learn
to come here and to make dua to be close to Allah subhanho wa Taala it's not a place that you can come and polluted so that others don't want to be in it anymore.
So how can I what messed up places?
If we treat them like this? How can they attract other Muslims, if we treat them like this?
are we up to the responsibility
of being an example. We begin with our message, we begin with our message. And third thing a third time I will say it We begin with our message. You make it the best place you can make it better than your own home you respect it better than you respect your own house, you instruct your children before they come here to respect it and behave better than they behave in their own homes.
You tell them that this is the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you will be the model you will be the model.
And then if we take care of our messages, then they can be shining examples of they can attract others to it. for Muslims and for non Muslims as well. They can be places for our for community growth, for community development, but you disrespected you dishonor it, you weaken it, and then you can play that it's not doing its job, it's you
who is not doing his job. So let's all collaborate with nilla Zoda Let's all collaborate. When we come to the parking, you respect those brothers.
When you come inside the masjid you respect that people are organizing the message and taking care of it. If you have advice. Go and give them that advice.
No backbiting, go and give them that advice. Tell them how they can improve
offer your services do your part.
And when there is the COVID Allah subhana wa tada in the masjid respected and I a hadith that is being read, respected. Otherwise, if you're done, pack your bags and leave and let others learn if you're not willing to learn
so the messages have a lot subpanel a lot of bad data in them and these are just few of them. But let's try to apply some
and not to be so stubborn when somebody comes and tells us brother and sister remember this is what you're supposed to be doing doing or what you're doing is wrong.
Be gentle. Accept this advice and change.
We ask Allah subhana wa tada to help us improve our character and respect his house and respect the brothers and sisters in the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala he Allah help us to make your house the best of the houses better than our own homes. And to respect it better than we respect our own homes. Yeah, lawmakers of those who attract people to Islam call people to Islam, not people who repel them away, not the people who turn them away, yellow make as examples unto Muslims, to non Muslims so that we can bring them closer to Islam. Allah improve our character and the character of our families, the character of our children, the character of our community or apply them in Yala
united saw upon your book and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and give us a strength on this earth your bellami so we can spread your word, Allah grant us a grant of sincerity, grant this fall the following of your of your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he Allah increased love among us. And please greet the love that we have in our hearts for you. And we ask you that you love us and return the money and increase the love that we have in our hearts for your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and for his companions and for the setup of this old man make them our model the outcome or Allah we ask you for all the good in this life and in the Hereafter, and we
seek protection from all evil in this life and in the Hereafter.
And we ask you for gender and everything that will bring us closer to it. And we seek your protection from jahannam and anything that will bring us closer to it.
