00:08:16--> 00:08:33

And I ask Allah subhana wa Taala, during this blessing month, to make us all from the people of Jenna, to gift us with all these gifts, as we heard in the translation, in the Hereafter, in the best place that we could be in gender and gender to fear those I mean era but I mean,

00:08:34--> 00:08:36

today, I just want to share with you something

00:08:37--> 00:08:41

a little bit different. I call it the elephant in the room.

00:08:43--> 00:08:50

And that is we know for the past 15 months, it's been a roller coaster of lockdown, after lockdown

00:08:51--> 00:08:55

restrictions, things that we are not able to do, we want to do.

00:08:56--> 00:09:42

But Allah subhanaw taala is saying this and he knows and he will reward us for our patients. Now a lot of people are going through tough times, emotionally, mentally, and that is the elephant in the room is that no one's really talking about this much is how people are feeling mentally. And no one's immune to it. Even the prophets love it was some went through phases of depression, where he was sad. And so if the prophets Allah while Islam and the prophets went through this, then we are we are nobody we are down to go through something like this. So kind of feelings. But I want to share one story at the time of the Prophet love it was sending him when he entered into the masjid.

00:09:43--> 00:10:00

And it was at a time when there was no prayer going on hobbie by the name of Abu Mama, and he was sitting in the masjid by itself. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entered and he asked him Oh Abu Amanda, what are you what are you doing here by yourself and it is not even the time

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Prepare between the horn officer between federal.

00:10:05--> 00:10:13

So no prayer going on he was sitting by himself. So with your loved one, he said to the Prophet, love Hollywood cinema prophet of Allah.

00:10:14--> 00:10:15

I am worried.

00:10:16--> 00:10:23

I'm sitting here because I'm worried. I have these negative thoughts and I have been overburdened by debt.

00:10:25--> 00:10:30

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said to him, or above Ma'am, I tell you

00:10:31--> 00:11:17

to recite a certain few words, Allah subhana wa tada will take away this, these emotions and these thoughts and these feelings that you're facing. So what is this to either the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam asked him to recite so he said, recite this in the morning and in the evening to do it's very important that we should memorize it. And we should recite daily so that we feel we feel good this is prescribed by the prophet sallallahu wasallam this too, is Allahumma inni are all the bigger middle homies. But hasn't that all protect us from harm? And hasn't neg lots and lots of 100,000 Quran try to refrain from thinking about different things because thoughts, they go in the

00:11:17--> 00:11:36

negative dark into the negative direction, it becomes like a series of unfortunate events, we start thinking negative and things start to move in that direction. But if we think positive, inshallah things will start to look up. So Allah please protect us from negative thoughts, and from beef

00:11:37--> 00:11:53

will hazard while RDC will castle from becoming hopeless, and becoming lazy. from becoming hopeless and from becoming lazy. When we have next thoughts will start to become hopeless, then we don't want to make an effort to become lazy.

00:11:54--> 00:12:41

While it will cast while Jubilee will buckle, and then we start to become afraid of things that are not really affecting us. So the next part will be the new album is all this from cowardice from becoming afraid and becoming a coward? Well buckle and protect us from coming miserly. When we've been afraid, we start to hold on to things that we love. And when the call comes to give, when there is a need to give, we want to hold back because we're trying to protect ourselves. So, protect us from coward and from miserliness. wahala back to Daniel kohara region. And the worst case is that we become we are overcome with debt. When we stop giving, then Allah subhanaw taala stops giving and

00:12:41--> 00:12:42

what happens we go into that

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

and what happens

00:12:47--> 00:13:09

then, the people they come and they overpower us and they are to to to harm us and to do you know, when we owe somebody money and we cannot repay them, but will they come they will come and they will try to get it out from us forcefully and put us into misery. So, the last thing we ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from

00:13:10--> 00:13:49

debt and from the rest of the people. So this is a very very important too. I was I will say it one more time. I love my arrows are becoming hanmi while hasn't while I dizzy while castle, while Germany will burn.

problem. And I was telling him I said what there's so many success stories. There's a there was there was one of one of the girls who attends our classes here. And handblown, we were attending, we had 232 students, that was the largest number we had attending. In our mustard that handle law, which grew from the initial, I'm not mistaken, it was something around 16 or 20 students the very first semester back in the end of December, November, December 2018. So from November, December to 2018, up until the last semester we had, which was just about a year ago, when we finish just before we move on last year, we had 232 Youth attending in person and continued our classes, online, you

00:30:44--> 00:31:02

know, throughout this entire pandemic. And in addition to that, with extra semesters, like in the summer months, when we usually give the students off from the mustard classes, you know, Alhamdulillah, we added the summer semester as well. And a success story that I wanted to share with you that I shared with you know, our brother was saying earlier today

00:31:04--> 00:31:28

is a girl who attended our class, and us to drop her off. And this is a teenage girl, her mom used to drop her off, tell her go and learn from the shape of take from me because I don't know Islam. So her mom would drop her off every Saturday and Sunday to come for the classes. And her mom would tell her go and learn from from the get go and learn from him again, learn from doubt, because I don't know Islam. So don't don't take it from me.

00:31:29--> 00:32:11

And the girl was telling me she spends her entire day on Instagram, all she does is take pictures of things and then edit it and post it up. And you know, that's really what she spends her time with. And she says Mom, you know, she spent a lot of her time you know, just taking pictures of herself right posting selfie pictures of own self. If she continuously tells the daughter don't learn from me go and learn from the mom right go and learn the teachers at the mustard. Now as you need to play our part right we need to share in educating our children is that maybe and so as parents we'll handle that what we did is we designed classes and courses to run hear from them or the entire

00:32:11--> 00:32:41

family but specifically for the parents so that the parent can educate themselves on Islam and and share it with their children. So this teenage girl, what she does is at the end of the semester, she didn't used to wear hijab, she only used to put on hijab to come to the masjid. And then she would take it off outside of the masjid. And her mom used to tell her I thought you're learning about this. I thought you're learning about Islam. I thought you should be wearing cub by now. Because, you know, you go to the masjid, you're supposed to wear hijab. And she says, I told my mom, if you don't wear hijab, why are you expecting me to wear it.

00:32:42--> 00:33:04

And then they had this argument and fast forward a few weeks later. In fact, a couple of months later, that's a teenage girl, she realized I don't wear my job because my mama hijab, I wear it because Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with me when I wear that when I submit some panel that I had. And she started to change route. That's that's the beginning.

00:33:05--> 00:33:47

Another example, we have a student, so how to love who still comes to this Masjid, she's in university, city now. She said, I never used to pray in our favor. We wanted we just pray. And there was one that Ramadan is about four years ago, four or five years ago, one Ramadan, where I was standing on the middle of the congregation, and she says, You know what doubted you, you told us just practice one thing, just do one thing throughout this entire month of Ramadan. And she says if I'm able to wake up for school to eat food every single day, then I should be able to wake up for fudger. Because if I could do that for 30 days for the sake of food, then I shouldn't be able to

00:33:47--> 00:34:12

wake up for budget every day. And she says she made it a point and a promise for herself to wake up for Salatu fudger every single day, throughout the month of Ramadan. And this was about a year ago, she made the story. She says I haven't missed a fudger up until today. And she says I haven't missed a prayer. I pray all my prayers. And she says you know what? My parents started praying their prayers as well. And you know, it's really interesting.

00:34:13--> 00:34:55

The parents came to the masjid one day when there was a, you know, a janazah. And the families were getting together. And the father comes to me and he says it's because of what you said. And because of what our daughter did, she started to pray a lot to budget and she started to pray her regular prayers that we as the parents realized we have to pray as well. He said, it's because of our child, our daughter who hamdulillah at the time was I think 16 or 17 years old. She started to establish her prayers so that parents started to establish their prayers. That's another success story to mustard and we can go on and on and on. You know, what the mustard provides for us is a sense of

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

community. And I give you a simple example chef Lawson Hello. Bless him and his family.

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

Protect him and keep him safe upon Islam and human, always

00:35:04--> 00:35:06

analytical data as well, but the stories of

00:35:10--> 00:35:11

shareholders like I'm hearing

00:35:13--> 00:35:33

back to childhood so I, he can pull my ears if I step out of line, but shefali Allah Subhana Allah, you know, the sense of community. My father a year ago, last year, January had open heart surgery, right he had a quintuple bypass surgery in Montreal. She was doing a program in Montreal.

00:35:34--> 00:36:13

I was there. And I think Montreal to come back because I had to be here for Juma. So I left and I came back and the other was Montreal. And my mom and my dad called me from the hospital and they said you share for the yard from your Masjid came to visit my dad in the hospital in Montreal. And I thought to myself Subhanallah that's a committee like that's what the masjid does the mustard connects the hearts of people who don't really know each other, but for the sake of Allah Subhana, which Allah they go out of their way for no benefit? Share, I'm pretty sure didn't benefit from anything, no financial benefit, probably pay for parking, which I didn't reimburse you. All right,

00:36:13--> 00:36:26

you know, took his time out of his day while he was traveling as a traveler, as a traveler to go into visit, you know, my father in the hospital. Again, another example of the community. So my brothers and sisters

00:36:28--> 00:37:05

can give you example, upon arrival, we have, you know, singers who show up at the door sometimes and say I have nowhere to go, they have nowhere to go. They're facing, you know, domestic violence, domestic abuse. And so we'll handle how we connect them with certain places outlets where they can go and benefit from sometimes we even have to come in a hotel ourselves, just pay for the hotel, put them in a hotel, get them some safety, some protection, some you know some time on their own, and then they'll handle out you know, space open one of the shelters then we will work that out and sorted out. So my brothers and sisters Don't underestimate the work that comes from the mustard you

00:37:05--> 00:37:47

may not see it, but there will be a day that you or someone you know of is in need of the services of the masjid. And you can probably remember back in the day and I know uncle Jabbar is sitting over there and he told me the story of back in a when the mustard was first acquired, and how you heard there was like a string hanging across with just sheets hanging right just to make a little bit of a space for the brothers and the sisters. And then you know the buddies in the gym with the youth Alhamdulillah and look at where we are today. Look at how far we've come and that doesn't mean that we are where we want to be. We are where we're going. We're going, going somewhere else inshallah

00:37:47--> 00:38:02

we're on board somewhere else. So my brothers and sisters, I want to encourage every single one of us, myself included, you know tonight is his 27th Night of the month of Ramadan. Allah Subhana Allah Allah to make this a blessing night and the night of power the night of will cuddle

00:38:04--> 00:38:44

it's also a time where we need to give for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala that Jeffrey out earlier y'all may have federal amin he won't me he will be what Sahiba tea he will have any liquid limited him in whom yoga isn't shutting on yagni every single person on the day of judgment will be saying enough, see enough See, right people will you go to you go to you go to your father, you go to your mother, you go to your children, you go to your spouse, you go to people looks after you in this world, your mother who always changed your diaper. And even if at this age, if I became ill like that a lot if one of us became ill in an older age, let's say we were 30 or 40 years old, and

00:38:44--> 00:38:54

our mother was still alive. And we had to wear diapers in our 40s guaranteed our mother would still change our diapers. Right?

00:38:55--> 00:39:04

guaranteed she would still do these things for us. But on the Day of Judgment, we'll go to our mother asking for a single good deed.

00:39:05--> 00:39:12

Father, spouse, children who would do everything in anything for us in this dunya on that day, they wouldn't give us a deed not one.

00:39:14--> 00:39:28

Not one, which means there has to be some effort that we do on our own. There has to be some sort of goodness that we strive for on our own. And tonight is that night that iccm opens its doors to allow us to do that.

00:39:29--> 00:39:42

You see it up there in front of you on the screens. Data is there for donations. You visit the mustard website, you can donate and for those of you that want to come I think we still have meals we have meals sponsored by Paramount Alhamdulillah

00:39:43--> 00:40:00

you know for the first 200 people that show up at the MCC, you know drive through donations. They're getting a meal from Paramount find some of my brothers and sisters. The volunteers will still be outside for another hour until 1130 you have the opportunity now to jump in cars. For those of you

00:40:00--> 00:40:29

That that want to come and donate in person, those of you that are in the comfort of your home Alhamdulillah we know it's a pandemic, so I'm not going to force or encourage anyone to come out but to remember when you come to the house of Allah Subhana, which Allah has a little more of an effect on you. You see the masjid, you want to give? How many times do we get in our car and drive to the grocery store? Or go to work? Or go to drop something off somewhere or go to a store, pick something up? How many times we just get in our car and drive around often? Because we're just tired of being at home.

00:40:30--> 00:40:35

How many times have we got into our cars, and driven over?

00:40:37--> 00:40:41

Just for the sake of coming closer to the house of Allah hanway

00:40:42--> 00:41:18

to even feel the walls, you know how it will go to the Kaaba and they put their hands on the wall, right? You put their hands on the wall of the Kaaba. And they even though it's not something of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, but they still go to it and they feel like they want to get as close to a loss of Hanwha talent as possible. And they don't know how to do it. And this is why they come close, but my brothers and sisters come close to the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Instead of going where there's shovel and evil, why not come to where there's height and goodness. It's the house of a loss of hanaway to add a place where only Allah subhana wa Taala is

00:41:18--> 00:41:39

worshipped. And so tonight, we request and we ask humbly to find it somewhere within your heart, as you know, shackled I was mentioning earlier, you know, we need to purify ourselves. Find it within yourself, purify your heart. Don't be scared, don't be shy.

00:41:41--> 00:41:54

COVID-19 Wallonia zanoni Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses believers, those who truly believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala, you have no fear, and no worry, no anxiety, no stress.

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

The $1,000 you're going to pledge tonight,

00:42:00--> 00:42:00

don't be

00:42:02--> 00:42:38

when you give for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah makes a way out for you. And he provides you with more from places you can't even imagine. So my brothers and sisters, we the $1,000 pledge. And we also request that you return those that Ramadan sprint does. It's the 27th night for those of you who want to keep it until the 29th ninth or 30th nights Bismillah you know, we encourage you to do that if your family is on a roll of hamdulillah you know, we're not going to stop you. But those of you who feel like you know what, I haven't put anything in there and some time bring those boxes back and get back, put some in and bring it back. And make sure you put your

And like I said, the volunteers will be outside for the next hour insha Allah to Allah until 1130 and if you keep coming at 1130 they will stay right then Night of the 27th I can get into our volunteers will stay till Soho right if do they will. And so we ask Allah Subhana Allah to open our hearts to make us from amongst those who give for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala And may Allah subhana wa Taala bless you and your friend to the best of this dunya that are clearer, and ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to make the good deeds that we do tonight, a means of our entry into paradise. And in fact, I just

00:43:18--> 00:43:19

remembered one last thing.

00:43:21--> 00:43:28

Just say it and you'll see how you purify your heart to show who they felt was talking about earlier. And you will
