are Hyrule howdy howdy Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or shall ohmori Masha? Allah Masha 13 beta. Or colavita. Arjun Allah Allah. Allah Allah Allah.
Allah, Allahu Akbar, the Ilaha, Illa Allah, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa ala in hand. Truly, this is a great day.
And it is a great day. Because Allah blessed us with a great month,
a month of worship, a month of obedience, a month of discipline, a month of character, the month of Ramadan, was a law's gift to us. And for that, we say Allahu Akbar.
It is a month historically, as a month of victory. Did you know that it was in the month of Ramadan that Allah gave the Muslims the victory of butter.
And it was in the month of Ramadan, that Allah gave the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, the conquest of Makkah.
And it's always in in this month, that Allah gives Muslims, victories and achievements, in a way he does not give outside of this month. So let us begin by counting some of those achievements.
First of all,
think about it. For 29 days, we fasted the longest, and the hottest days of the year, day after day, back to back the longest and the hottest. Tell me do you know of another community who can claim to do something like this? No.
This was a law's gift to us. And to that, I say, Allahu Akbar.
Are you aware how much charity Muslims gave him a bomb? It is unbelievable.
They said British Muslims have donated 100 million pounds in the month of Ramadan alone. That is a staggering 38 pounds every second in the month of Ramadan. And to that I say Allahu Akbar,
our children, our youngsters, they sacked. The most important exams of their life GCSEs a levels, university exams, once they were fasting, the days of Ramadan.
This is an achievement. Who can say they've done something like this, fasted and done the exams. And to you, I congratulate you. Because Do you know what you have just done? By fasting? You strove for your hair often.
By doing your exams, you strove for your dunya and so you strove for both dunya and,
and this is what Allah says.
Dunya has Anna waffle up here at your house, you know, and to you.
To you, I say, Allahu Akbar.
not only the de FOS like us, but think about it.
They went about their daily lives, many days were hot. They wore their jobs, their Jill Bob's when a cop some of them
and they did what we did, but they did more.
They fasted and they helped open the fast of their families. whilst they were fasting, they were looking after the house, the children making school runs,
looking after the affairs of other people, so who time if thought time they were there serving other people. You are an inspiration to the Muslim community, my sisters and to you, I say
you are inspiration. We know in these difficult times
that the weak people in society, the ignorant people in society would like to make your targets but because
You still continue to wear your hair jobs, continue to go about living as true Muslim as
in the face of such hardship. You have become an inspiration to us for llahi By Allah, you have become an inspiration to us.
In this month, even in the face of tragedy, there were inspirational stories.
As many of our speakers have mentioned, Granville tragedy in West London where that tower block went up in fire.
Such sadness, so much to say, but I want you to remember three young Muslim individuals.
Shoshana Hanif and Hamid,
these three youngsters in the 17th floor, when they saw the building on fire. They had with them they elderly mom and dad,
and they were too old to leave the building.
And so from one o'clock, until 10, past three, those children instead of running for their lives, they stayed next to their mum and dad, because they couldn't leave them alone. They want their phones to their relatives, telling them, don't be sad for us. Don't mourn us, because we are going is a better place and we are staying and attend past three in the morning. The flames took their rooms, and we pray that a lot took their souls as martyrs. And to them, I say
you are an inspiration to us. You gave meaning to the words of Allah while waiting
to your parents. They deserve the most excellent conduct from you. May Allah make us excellent to our parents are mean.
And the second thing I want to say and I want to, I want to finish with this.
Reflect over there.
Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it was his tradition to say that to be the the wolves in Medina would echo that beat Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, the law, the law, along with
put on while he took me down
to capital la dama de Allah said in the Quran, that you finish the counter the days meaning the days of Ramadan, and then you say Allahu Akbar.
you proclaim the greatness of Allah.
And even in the salon, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made extra tech beefs. Why, what is the connection between saying Allahu Akbar bottom and the day of eight? Let me explain. Many people translate Allahu Akbar, as Allah is the Greatest, but this is not an accurate translation.
Though Allah is the Greatest, Allahu Akbar means Allah is greater. But when you say Allah is greater, it creates a question in your mind. And that is, Allah is greater than what?
And now reflects over Rama born every day, we
made haram that which was normally How long?
We can eat and drink all we like, and we like to eat and drink. But in the days of Ramadan, we said, No. We can't eat and drink. When hunger came. We said, No, we can't eat right now. Allah wants us to wait a little longer. In the summer days when our throats became dry.
And we became thirsty. We said, No, we can't drink anything. Because Allah wants us to wait a little longer, even relationships between the husband and the wife. We said, No, we have to wait. So for 29 days, you know what you did? You showed that Allah is greater, greater than your hunger, greater than your thirst, greater than your desires. And so for 29 days you prove to yourself that you can make Allah greater than anything else in your life. That is what you have done. So Ramadan was a training to show you that you can make a law greater than every other priority in your life, so that throughout the rest of the year, you can live in the obedience of Allah, making him greater than
All of your other priorities in life and so upon Allah for that, we should thank Allah and hamdulillah.
But the the real lesson for us to take is that what are we going to do with all of this training?
What we are going to do my brothers and sisters, is we are not going to abuse this blessing. We're not going to abuse this training, by neglecting our Salah
by neglecting charity by neglecting the Quran by neglecting the remembrance of Allah know what we are going to do is we are going to remain steadfast and we are going to continue to live the rest of this year until next Ramadan with that feeling of Allah greatness in our hearts and showing him through our excellence say inshallah. inshallah we will I leave you with the verse in the Quran.
In the levy Nepal or a boon Allah will
to Allah Hafiz
to be genuine Atilla t quantum to our Dune. Allah says in the Quran in surah facilite. Angels will come down to those who would see a law is our monster. And then we remain steadfast. And they will say to you, they will say don't be scared. Don't be sad. We give you the congratulations of the garden that you have been promised. Allah has promised us paradise and he has put us in this world to test us. Be great Muslims. Be faithful to Allah and you will succeed. May Allah Subhana Allah bless you all on this day. May Allah accept all of your donations, and all of your sadaqa and all of your Salah Docomo Barak, I have one final message most of us we may have not heard that buttes in
the beginning. But this is fine and Sharma because they were said and the salaat by Elian Sharla is accepted at the como bodek. What is optimal no Hayden. Obama can low FICO. Have a great day.
