00:00:00--> 00:00:21

Said I'm running into Lahore Baraka Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah and Avi Hill Karim, Allah, Allah, Allah to attempt to slim or be shortly Saudi way acidity Emery orchidectomy lissoni of Cabo Kohli, my brothers and my sisters send them why they come to ye over cattle.

00:00:23--> 00:00:33

So today is the third day of fasting during this month of Ramadan. And I think that it's going well, I think it's going well for the most part, at least for me, it is humbler I

00:00:35--> 00:01:15

do have a little bit of back pain from the move that we made recently. But other than that happens a lot, you know, the fasting seems to be going, alright, you know, year after year, we usually meet community members and people who have to spend their time you know, going to work and doing physical work, right, so people who are doing a lot of physically demanding labor and stuff like that. And it can be very challenging, especially during this time of the year during the month of Ramadan. So I know for a lot of community members now that are staying home and having the ability to stay home hamdulillah they, you know, don't don't really have to exert themselves so much those that are going

00:01:15--> 00:01:59

out to me Allah subhana wa tada have mercy upon you and make it easy for you and your family throughout this difficult time. We know that it's not easy for anyone, even if you're staying at home, it is very challenging, just to you know, be stuck at home and not be able to go out and about and do the things that we typically do. So it can be very challenging. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make it easy for every single one of us. So I do see a few people saying senem for HANA or assuming that we say for HANA, right fA r j A j na lang equals n m and brother did one I saw lots of Article last week and I actually live closer to you now we moved just down the street from you. So

00:02:00--> 00:02:03

I'll see you soon inshallah. Hopefully, it will see you when we drive by.

00:02:04--> 00:02:19

And that I see by him when he comes to Morocco to what you're about to counsel. And you know, everyone on Instagram, it's a pleasure to see all of you once again and have the law and martial arts of Trinidad and Tobago. Man, I need to get my doubles and bicep shot.

00:02:21--> 00:02:44

I'm going to LA we have people from all over the world attending and that's a, you know, such a blessing from the lesson Hannibal which I know I need to send him to every single one of you, when you're probably in Malaysia or maybe from Malaysia. And I know some of the other people here in our community as well saying sent him so I think I'm gonna send him to every single one of you and your children. I'm sure there's probably a lot of children that are watching. So I'm ready to come to every single one of you.

00:02:46--> 00:02:53

All right, so let's get into it. inshallah, we're going to begin the fourth joys of the end today. Okay, the fourth Joseph M.

00:02:55--> 00:03:37

And so we're still within sort of early Emraan. Okay, the fourth Joseph is still within sort of early on, and then we will transition into near the end of the Ges, we begin to sort of Tunis up, okay, that's what I titled The women, okay. So, at the beginning of the fourth was Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah begins this just with the mentioning of this righteousness once again. And we spoke about it the day before yesterday, if I'm not mistaken, about righteousness and piety, and the loss of Hannah with Allah says, Lisa and Bill were unto Alou. How come tibula mushrik evil masquerade? Well, our Kindle did woman and I've been learning while you're in Africa, and the verse goes on,

00:03:37--> 00:03:41

right? It's a fairly lengthy verse. However, here we see at the beginning of this jizz

00:03:42--> 00:04:12

and I see someone who just pulled up in my driveway so my doorbell may ring any second now. But we see how a loss of handling data starts this just off by saying, Len Tanner, a little bit of a habitat student people met your husband, Allah Subhana Allah mentions that you will never achieve righteousness until you donate some of what you cherish, right you donate some of what you cherish, and whatever you give is certainly well known to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah Subhana Allah says

00:04:13--> 00:04:13

Tana

00:04:17--> 00:04:17

CFO,

00:04:22--> 00:04:23

former

00:04:24--> 00:04:25

CFO,

00:04:32--> 00:04:44

Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights righteousness once again. And he says you will never attain righteousness, as we saw in sort of two bacara Allah Subhana Allah says, Lisa, unto a

00:04:45--> 00:05:00

machete will Muslim whether kingdom, men and a beloved law he will yo will ask at what karma Sala were at his account. And then Allah Subhana Allah goes on into discussing giving work, right and spending on those returns.

00:05:00--> 00:05:14

Traveling those who are in need and those who are, you know deserving. Here was a pen which added says once again, you will not fully and truly attain piety until you give what you cherish what you love when people mess your head wound.

00:05:15--> 00:05:32

So my brothers and sisters, a huge part of pleasing loss of travelers and gaining that connection and righteousness with Allah subhanho wa Taala is found in us giving up the things that we love from this dunya and from the things that we love the most

00:05:33--> 00:06:15

lucky the things that we love the most of this dunya the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says we're fitna to own Mati filmen, the fitna or the trial, the difficulties the hardship that we will be tested with right in terms of what we love, what we desire, you know, the things that we enjoy and cherish Allah Subhana Allah mentions will fitna to Almighty filled man, the fitna of myeloma is in wealth, right in wealth in money. And so my brothers and sisters, when we see that a loss of Henry's head is telling us now you will not truly and fully attain righteousness, piety with Allah subhanho wa Taala until you give that which you love,

00:06:16--> 00:06:20

when people not to headphone, I love dates, right?

00:06:21--> 00:06:22

The dates that we eat

00:06:24--> 00:06:46

could you have dates, you know, like tomato dates, and so so Canada when you give them away, a loss of Henry Tanner blesses you with much more the other day some handle I went around and you know, just stopped off at some people's houses. I had some extra boxes of dates and gave them away as a gift. Some of the new neighbors some of the people who helped us during the move, because we had to move during this Coronavirus, you know, COVID-19

00:06:48--> 00:07:27

pandemic, and some of the brothers came out and helped us move and handle that was such a blessing. And I thought, you know, what, what, what an amazing thing to do to give dates to people who helped you move and to earn the reward of them fasting as well. And so some had a long and went around giving giving people some dates, but also what we noticed in the last few days we've been receiving so many dates people have been giving us dates like crazy. And so that I was thinking today the amount of dates that I gave away I probably we probably have received already from others. It's a blessing from Allah Subhana Allah to add. So what that says Lenten Allah, if you will not truly

00:07:27--> 00:07:51

attain piety righteousness have to people meant to have gone well not when people mean shade in for in the law have been here Allium and whatever you give is certainly well known to Allah subhana wa tada Allah knows it. So you can give away something simple you might might like this. And we give it to you. Don't ask for it's my wife said I'm not gonna give it away.

00:07:52--> 00:08:25

But no, so how do I you might like it. And you know, we give it to you and Allah subhana wa Jalla knows that this is something so simple, it's just a piece of wood is just a design is something you just put on the wall. hamdullah It looks nice. It Yes, it is a mentioning of you know, the is or the surah of the Quran that are important, but sort of to airfloss and the Mara with a 10. However, it's something but sweet. It's simple, right? But Allah Subhana Allah knows when you give something you sacrifice something you part with it for the sake of pleasing the lesson. How do I get out of it, he gives us so much more in return.

00:08:27--> 00:08:48

And we can't fully and truly attain righteousness until we start to give away the things that we cherish the most. Remember, we're not going to be here forever, right? So it's important to try to start doing that. Alright, let's move down just a few more verses. Verse number 96, of Sora. Earlier in Milan, Allah Subhana Allah says, in one ibtm

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

nesina ledi be bad ketemu

00:08:56--> 00:09:46

any, Allah Subhana Allah says that surely the first house in elevating all the alumnus, the first house, that's a place of worship, right a place to worship Allah subhana wa Tana, or the first place that we go to to worship Allah subhana wa tada established for humanity as a loss of Henry's Allah says we'll be adding ness. Lizzie be Becca, it is the one in Baca. What is Becca? Where's bucka? bucka is one of the traditional names for Mecca. Okay, you used to also be called back. And so today if you go to Mecca, the people who live in Macau, if you say Alhamdulillah what's on the back? They will say Alhamdulillah Allah near Mattila, right or something like that? Do they understand they

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

know that MCC used to be called bucha Okay, and so Allah subhana wa tada uses that word in the Quran, but the former name for that totally city where we find

00:10:00--> 00:10:26

The cabin today and Allah Subhana Allah says more about can a blessing sanctuary and a guide for all people fi tune by ye nurten McCollum Ibrahim in it are clear signs and the standing place of Prophet Ibrahim Allah has sent out the McCollum of Ibrahim v i to beginner to him, woman definitely walk in and you know,

00:10:27--> 00:11:13

Allah subhana wa tada is talking about Mecca, this traditional city known as Becca, where it is found the very first place that has been positioned for us in terms of worship as the believers and followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam MCC in itself was established. And we see that Prophet Ibrahim Allah has sent him when he built this carrabba and he established it there with his son Ibrahim, and his son is married early him his son and the two of them, they built the carrabba Allah Subhana, which Allah gave Ibrahim and he sent him something to stand on something that would elevate him and allow him to put the bricks higher and higher in position to form the counter back.

00:11:14--> 00:11:14

Okay.

00:11:15--> 00:11:57

Now we'll also kind of add dimensions here, you know, in its are clear signs and the standing place of Ebrahim. Today when you look at the Kava, it brings tears to the eyes and sadness to the heart, because you wish to be there. We were supposed to be there for Umbra, just a few weeks ago, right just before Ramadan. We were supposed to have returned during March at the end of March. We didn't get to go. And when you look at the pictures, and you see that there's hardly anyone there, you know, some kind of law my, my wife, sister, for example, she, you know, waited her whole life to go for either Hajj or Umrah. She's in her 40s now.

00:11:58--> 00:12:22

And Subhana Allah wished to go to Mecca, and finally was able to go she decided, you know, her nephew, our nephew was taking her and went as her mom with her as a single mother. So he said, you know, he'll go with her and Subhanallah he went with her, they went for ombre, but they could not perform Arma In fact, they were in Mecca, but they were not even allowed to perform.

00:12:23--> 00:13:03

And so all they could do from the first floor is performed the left and that was it. So imagine you wait your whole life to be able to go to Mecca to back to the city of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he's established for us to turn to for when he would you can shop around the musty dill harem. We learned that yesterday that we turn facing the direction of the carrabba and it is a place that we stand in direction to worship Allah but it is the home of Allah subhana wa tada in the sense that it is a place of worship. It's a place of every day that we go there to worship above some kind of water at it. And so you make the walk around the Kaaba, and then you stand back behind McCollum

00:13:03--> 00:13:51

Ibrahim, in the place in position that the prophets of Allah subhana wa tada stood, right. And you see the stone where the footprints of Ibrahim alayhis salaam are preserved. And then you go and you make your life sorry, your say, between Safa and Marwa, the place where hajah, the wife of Ibrahim Allah has sent him when he left her there before the caribou was even built. He left her in that area, there was nothing It was barren, empty land, and the loss of hanwa data provided for her Zamzam. Right, that came from the ground isms Um, well. And so you stand in those places you pray in those places, you may be making such data, putting your head to the ground, worshiping the loss of

00:13:51--> 00:14:37

hanway data, and placing your forehead in the same position on Earth, that one of the prophets of Allah subhanho data had placed their heads as well. were one of the messengers or even heard of right or baby is married and could have been placed on the ground there to rest while his mother was, I don't know getting some some some water. Right? Some blessing in it are signs we run between the valley in the middle of luck in the middle of suffering muddle up, you're traveling between those two mountains, right, and the valley in between we run. And as men we run, reminding ourselves that a woman ran it and ran in this, this place. And she ran looking for this water to go back up

00:14:37--> 00:14:41

the next mountain to search for something to give to her child.

00:14:42--> 00:14:53

And we as men, we run there and we remember this was one of our mothers, one of the mothers of the prophets of Allah subhana wa tada and a wife of the Prophet of Allah subhana wa,

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

who ran here in search of provisions for herself and for her child.

00:15:00--> 00:15:23

So last weekend, we had a brings us there. And he shows us that there are signs clear signs here and will somehow do it and then says, What did woman definite a woman, sorry woman, definitely who can Amina whoever enters into MCC is safe, you're protected, you're safe. And I always remind you know how sometimes you go for high drama.

00:15:25--> 00:16:02

And you get there. And sometimes the workers, you know, they're frustrated, they're tired. They're dealing with a huge crowd, 3 million people, you know, walking around, there's lots of noise. It's very crowded, it's congested. Sometimes you feel nervous, you might even get an anxiety attack. Right, one of the sisters with us last year, she had a really difficult time, her anxiety was so high because she's in a crowd, there's so many people, you feel nervous, you feel scared, like something may happen. And if something happens, are you going to be safe? And so sometimes with the workers, they're when they're stressed, you know, and they get upset, I say things to them, like,

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

you know, this is a place that we are safe.

00:16:06--> 00:16:30

And they are providing safety to us. Right, a loss of handwork. And it tells us as pilgrims, when we go there, we are protected, we're safe. And the people have looked at there, they're serving us, right? They're serving the people that come. And I remember one time, you know, I went to the very first time it took my wife or I'm going to the immigration officer in the agenda airport, you know, he was giving people a hard time, for whatever reason, right?

00:16:31--> 00:16:42

He's giving people a hard time and everyone has their stories on how hard it was and how difficult it was and how patient they had to be. And so when we finally reached the counter and gave him our passports,

00:16:44--> 00:17:24

you know, he started to treat us like he was treating everyone else. And I wasn't going to take that right because I know I lived there for so many years. I was like you know, able to speak to them in Arabic able to communicate with them. And so I told him, I said you know, you should be treating us a lot better. You are the people who hold the keys to the Kava, you are the people who Allah has chose to look after his house. And Allah has chose to welcome us as her judge as Martha meeting as people coming to perform pilgrimage here. And so you are supposed to be taking care of us and honoring us because Allah has honored you. And immediately he changed he was like where you from?

00:17:24--> 00:18:06

Canada I gave him my passport. But and then I told him I said I'm a graduate from the Sadek University. So I studied with people like you. And so you guys have been placed in a position of honor and respect from a loss of Henry Tana to look after his home and look after the Dean of Allah. And so he felt really like honored and happy and then he treated me and everyone after us very decent we've had a lot so sometimes you need to remind people you know, we get angry we get upset, we're stressed, but Allah subhana wa tada says woman definitely who can Amina whoever enters into mcha, you're safe and protected. When he left here Island nurse he had jewel bait him and he stepped

00:18:06--> 00:18:11

on her. He said Allah, Allah Subhana Allah says, and for Allah

00:18:13--> 00:18:35

pilgrimage is made to his house as an obligation to those who are able to minister Bara la he Sevilla who are able to perform that pilgrimage and whoever disbelieves then surely Allah is not in need of any of his creation. someone chooses not to believe someone chooses not to go for Hajj someone chooses not to go for a month

00:18:37--> 00:19:19

that's that's their choice, right? Remember, we learned yesterday that it can all have 15 there's no compulsion in the demark and a force anyone into doing something and so we need to take it easy, but a loss of halloweentown is showing us Whoever believes and whoever is able to and travels to pilgrimage to Mecca to perform weather had your I'm gonna we do it for a loss of henrick I had it for no other reason. However, at the same time, what we see here is those who choose not to it's okay Allah subhana wa tada says he's not in need of it. He doesn't need us to go and perform Hajj he doesn't need us to perform pilgrimage. And this my brothers and sisters is the reminder for us in

00:19:19--> 00:20:00

the condition that we see MK in today. Little loss of headboards and is not in need of us making the walk around the caravan. Allah subhanho wa Taala is not in need of us going between Safa and Marwa Allah subhanho wa Taala is not in need of us going and seeking forgiveness. We are in need of Allah subhana wa tada and so my brothers and sisters when it comes to mcca Don't feel sad. Don't feel like you know we need to do something in order to uplift or upkeep our Deen a simple example people say well we have to have some action and we have to

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

have thought all week and we have to have a guarantee cuff No.

00:20:05--> 00:20:55

At a time like this, if we can't have it, don't forget, Allah doesn't need us to do these things. We need Allah subhana wa Tada. So in the safety and protection of your home at this current time, due to loss of habitat is still expects from us. He's still expecting us to pray Our solar every single day. A loss of habitat is still expecting for us to treat Juma as a special day in the week even though there is no Sala of Joomla. There may not be solid to Joomla but there still is still there still is an recitation of the Quran. There still is due out supplication there still is seeking forgiveness, there still is sending Peace and blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:20:55--> 00:21:40

still is taking a shower a bath and putting on this clothing and grooming ourselves beautifully. And putting on perfume and cleaning our mouth and teeth and making sure that we come early and ready. So we are busy and that is still part of Friday. So my brothers and sisters don't feel that Allah subhana wa tada needs us. He doesn't, we need him. So in a situation where we're stuck and we're not able to go to the mustard, we're not able to gather for Tada, we were not able to congregate for even if decaf and stuff like that. Alhamdulillah at least we are safe and still able to fulfill the aspects of ariba that we need from a loss of animal. That's right.

00:21:41--> 00:21:54

We move on the next verses that we will take verse number 103 of sort of Ramadan, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Where does the mo be happy Nadler hegemony and

00:21:57--> 00:22:27

I'm not going to read all of the Arabic In fact, in order to save time, I'm going to start reading less of the Arabic and just explain the English inshallah Allah Subhana. Allah says here in verse number 103, and hold firmly to the rope of Allah and do not be divided. Right? Do not be divided as an Ummah we can't afford to be divided. We need to be united. So hold on to the rope of Allah. What is that rope of Allah? Like Tarzan. Oh,

00:22:29--> 00:23:05

right. So have a look. I remember we grew up watching Tarzan, I think many of our kids don't know and Tarzan is notice. Right? But Tarzan, what is he holding on to he's holding on to this rope and it's like his rope of safety. If he falls from it, he falls in he may die. The rope that we hold on to as believers is the rope of Allah known as the Quran, right in the core, and that we're reading through the end that we're learning right now that we're spending time with, that is the rope of Allah subhana wa Jannah. And Allah tells us hold on to it all together, every single one of us hold on to the rope of a lesser kind of which I had, where I don't see where we have lived that hegemony,

00:23:06--> 00:23:17

when not to form rapoo and do not be dispersed. Do not be divided amongst yourselves don't go different ways come together, be united be together, right?

00:23:18--> 00:23:59

And then he says, and remember the favors of Allah subhanho wa Taala that were upon you as enemies. And this is of course talking about the tribes or the tribes during the time of the Prophet some longer and even some that were divided, and you know, they differed and Allah Subhana was added says that you were on the edge of the cliff and you were about to fall into Janna. But you were saved and you held on to the rope together and you brought your health your hearts, you know together United for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and he then says, When Turkoman Come on madonia neurona you know clean. Let there be amongst you a group of people who call others to goodness. Call others to

00:23:59--> 00:24:44

goodness my brothers and sisters. Have you called someone to goodness recently? Have you invited someone to the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala have you shown someone else? The beautiful method of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in living our lives in 2020 Have you done that? Have I done that? Have we been able to do that? You know, some kind of law simple example. Our sisters sometimes do it all the time without even noticing it. Right and as brothers we may fall short, our sisters they wear the hijab they go out that's a such a clear cut sign of Islam. Especially at a time when people are like, you know putting down Islam and people are you know, taking away from the rights of

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

the human beings. Allah subhanho wa Taala is showing us as a woman who goes out who's wearing her Hey job, you are showing an example of Islam to others. You're calling people to Allah subhanho wa Taala and nowadays when you look at it, you see people wearing masks, right?

00:25:00--> 00:25:32

Around, people wearing masks on their faces, right? And they're covering themselves up. They're not just wearing masks. They're wearing gloves. People used to laugh at our Muslim sisters who were covered up completely protecting themselves from the harms of society. Now, and I'm not saying that this is, you know, the reason why we're going through all of this pandemic and stuff, no, not at all, not mentioning that at all. And I'm one of the first ones to say, Allah Subhana Allah knows best why this is coming to us and why we have it. However,

00:25:33--> 00:25:48

you know, people would mock Muslims. And now look what we saw yesterday, LA, for the very first time, Medina mustard downtown, I remember when I was young, I used to go in Jamaat, right I was studying in a data room in a in a,

00:25:50--> 00:26:29

in a mother cell, right, memorizing Quran, and we used to go in Jamaat to believe in jamaats and we used to stay there, don't do that anymore for the record, but you know, somehow when I was younger, we used to go and we suspend you know, weekends at Medina mustard. We used to go there and sleep the night. And so how do I it's transformed so much. Now look at this 2020 after everything that's going on since September 11. Until now, you know, Muslims in the media being shown as or being portrayed as being evil and bad and stuff like that. And look how Allah subhana wa Woods added, change the hearts of certain people, where the eye then is permitted to be called downtown, just very close to

00:26:29--> 00:27:18

downtown in the heart of Toronto, out loud on the loudspeakers until the end of the month of Ramadan. Every single day, the again is going to be called from Medina Masjid Toronto, at the heart of the city, for Salah to motive until the end of the month of Ramadan, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, like, what more do we want? And we are not. We are not doing this in order to make life difficult for our neighbors. No, it is calling upon a law, the creator of all of the human beings, if there are any non Muslims that are watching right now or may watch this later on. They might say, Well, why do we need to do that? This is Canada. Right? creeping Sharia. I know this Sharia law and stuff

00:27:18--> 00:28:03

like that, that people are talking about? No, we are not doing anything that we feel is harmful to others. And it's such a beautiful tone. And it's being heard by many people. It's a call to prayer, a call to success, a call to the oneness of, you know, to worship the oneness of God, right to worship God. And it's something that we do in order to also indicate to those who are fasting during the month of Ramadan, it's time to break your fast. It's time to break your fast. How many movies did we see the then being called in or the freeze, Allahu Akbar being mentioned in movies, and people run? They're like, Oh, my God, oh, my God, something's gonna happen. Something's gonna blow

00:28:03--> 00:28:32

up. Allahu Akbar, is not a call to danger. It's a call to goodness, a call to success. In fact, it's just a simple phrase. That means God, Allah is the Greatest. But when we see it being mentioned in movies, it's usually like, Oh, no, here we go. Alright, they're making the Muslims look bad. And I remember a few years ago, I traveled with my father, we flew to Pakistan.

00:28:33--> 00:29:10

We flew from Toronto, to London Heathrow to Abu Dhabi to Karachi. And then to Islamabad, and, and back, and on the way there. Something was in my dad's bag, right, it was something in my bag that they noticed in the in the x rays, they pass it through, and they're like, you know, what is this thing? And is basically an ISA bond, right? Those of you who were like a lot of companies, you know, right, it's, it's just that that stick with a string on the end, and you put the other string through that you pass through your pants, and basically, it's a belt, but it's a belt that's like five meters long.

00:29:12--> 00:29:46

For the show water that you wear. And so long story short, we're going through the airport, and they see this in my dad's bag, and they pull it, you know, they pull his bag aside and they open it up. They're like, what is this and they're frustrated, because they don't know what it is. And my dad's getting frustrated with them, right? He's old. And so he's like, he's like, I don't understand these people. They're just making life difficult for Muslims, right? He doesn't travel a lot, and I travel a lot. And I'm like that Come on, just chill, man. Don't get upset. And he, I remember we were, we were in Toronto, and then we were in London Heathrow and the same thing happened. And he got upset

00:29:46--> 00:29:51

and somehow my dad, when he was front, when he's frustrated, he just goes along.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

In the airport, and he's like, what's wrong with these people like that? We're in the airport.

00:30:00--> 00:30:30

There are certain words that listeners know not to use in the airport. And he's like, What? Don't be scared these people, they're just trying to make life difficult for you, like, I know, but like, I don't want to make life difficult for them. And I don't want to call them these people. They're human beings. They're doing things for the safety of everyone, right? And so they're just questioning what is this thing in your bag. And then once it's fine, they'll let you go with it. And at hamdulillah they let him go with it. Right, everything was fine, we traveled and it was just awesome. But that's an example of how,

00:30:31--> 00:31:13

you know sometimes we call people to Islam. And, and, and we don't realize that one of the simplest ways of calling people to ascend is not to use this. It's not to use this not to use our mouth. It's to use ourselves, to be a good person, to show a good example, to share goodness to share height, right to spread the example of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in our speech, or even without our speech in the way that we do things. We don't cheat, we don't lie. We don't steal, we don't harm others. We look after each other. We don't discriminate. If we see someone, let's say, you know, there's a house burning. Maybe not use the example of a house burning because we're not supposed to

00:31:13--> 00:31:47

encourage people to run into a house that's burning, right? But we see someone that's in need someone fell, or, you know, a woman is crossing the street, and a car is coming down the street and she doesn't see it. And you as a Muslim man, you're gonna stand there and go on not my Hunter. So I'm not gonna, sorry, I can't do anything. And you're watching the car and the car comes in hit, sir. Oh, as I'm listening, if there's a woman or men, anyone walking across the street, and there's a car coming, there's harm, we have a responsibility to save that person. Yes, in times of ease, for example, you know, Muslim,

00:31:48--> 00:32:03

myself as a Muslim, a woman comes in and sticks her hand out to shake my head, I'm not going to shake your head because that's something I choose not to do for the sake of my Deen for the sake of my weirdness with Allah. And because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned something you know about this. And so I choose not to do it.

00:32:04--> 00:32:41

And I feel that this is the best thing to do. However, at a time, when I see a woman is standing in the street or crossing the street and a car is coming in and going to hit her, I would run and like, push her and grab her and take her away, right? So that the car doesn't hit her. That's what we're supposed to do. So as Muslims, we have to be the people in society that show the best example that people start to question. It's fine for people to question us, especially when we're doing good. So people see us praying as Muslims. We shouldn't get offended with people questioning what are you doing? We should be like I'm praying. I'm showing you an example of what we're supposed to do. So

00:32:41--> 00:33:18

when you stand in the street, for example, Coronavirus Now please respect all the you know, laws and bylaws and all this stuff that's out there, but generally speaking non Coronavirus, because inshallah This won't last forever and shot a lot of data and, you know, maybe people will be watching this years from now, you know, if you're standing outside praying and people come and question you, are you wearing your hijab and people question you don't feel offended, feel honored. That you are showing people an example of your deen and people are recognizing your deen and they're not coming in harming you. They're coming in questioning. Why do you do this? They want to learn?

00:33:18--> 00:33:59

Maybe Allah Subhana which Allah is opening their hearts to Islam. And we as the Muslims are like, oh, everyone's against us. No, not everyone's against us. Maybe that person's heart is opening to Islam. And Allah is making you a means of conveying the message of assent to the hearts of that person. And so don't get offended my brothers and sisters is why Allah Subhana Allah says in the end, either a fault of a manager you know in a call center when someone ignorant comes in says something to us, we respond in a nice peaceful way. We move on. Also Penrith. Allah says why not a kulu can Latina tafadzwa who wanted a full embarrass the manager a hormonal billing unit. And do not

00:33:59--> 00:34:52

be like those who split into sex who split themselves up and deferred after clear proofs had come to them. It is they will suffer a tremendous punishment. My brothers and sisters Islam is clear. The Deen is clear in terms of a bada the things that we're supposed to do to worship Allah subhana wa Tada. They are clear clear clear, right? We do not pray to Allah subhana wa tada in ways that were not shown to us by Mohammed some along with Allah usnm we do not perform Hajj in a country or a place other than MK and you know Mina and was deadly fat and alpha and so on and so forth. We do not fast during the month of the Garda for 30 consecutive days, the ways that we worship Allah subhanho

00:34:52--> 00:35:00

wa Taala are shown to us clear we understand that we fast during Ramadan we go for Hajj and mcca was that if I prefer and me

00:35:00--> 00:35:21

We, you know, do certain things we shave our head we wear certain clothing, right? We are respectful to one another, we don't harm ourselves or harm each other or harm society. There are things that we follow in our Deen and the loss of highlights and is showing us it's clear and those who choose not to follow it. Well that's their choice, right? That's their choice. Move on.

00:35:25--> 00:35:32

Here we'll go to verse number 133. Allah subhana wa tada says, what's said here,

00:35:33--> 00:35:39

Isla molefi rotm beacon weijun

00:35:41--> 00:35:42

was

00:35:45--> 00:36:35

worried that he would be in a loss of panelboards Allah tells us and hasten the quick rush towards the forgiveness of your Lord and paradise that is vast as the heavens in the earth. prepared for those mindful of Allah. rush towards the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala ask yourself this. How many times have I said a stoic feudal law today? How many times today? Have I said a stop of law? Have I even done it once? Right? One of the beautiful things I don't have my phone, I'm using it to stream on Instagram. But one of the beautiful things about you know technology and it really bothers me sometimes when I meet people are like so against technology. I like technology and

00:36:35--> 00:37:13

hamdulillah I also have my reservations towards technology, but some of the things that are out there are beneficial for example, you know, the Muslim pro app, you go on it, you have the timings of sauna right yeah then timings prayer timings you also have like you know, a tracker so you can go in there and keep track of all the days that you fast in the days that you may have missed fasting maybe you were sick and you didn't fast so some people say you know what, I don't remember how many days I missed last year we have no excuse anymore. Use the technology that we have. You can mark off the days that you fast you can mark off the solid that you pray or you can use it for your children

00:37:13--> 00:37:54

to say hey look yesterday you prayed for prayers maybe today you can try and pray five right? And so we can use the technology that we have. It's there for us rush towards it. And there's also things that encourage us there's it reminds us to do is still love it reminds us to you know remember of us a pen with an in the morning in the evening. There are things that we can use right? So Allah says was Sadie aroo, Ito fealty middle have become strive hard push rush towards the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and towards Jenna paradise. We need I don't know how much longer I'm gonna live. You don't know how much longer you're going to live? What if we only have five more days? What what

00:37:54--> 00:38:24

size genda have I built? And can I increase the size of my paradise in the next five days? Absolutely. If I say so Han a lot. A tree is planted my agenda becomes bigger, right? If I if I pray my daily Sunnah, right the sun and a robotic, the pseudonym okay that the prophets are longer and he will send them never miss those 12 Raka extra 12 or aka that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed.

00:38:25--> 00:39:07

If we pray those every single day, a palace is built for us in our agenda. If a palace is built, it means that the agenda is getting bigger. It's not like existing land and you build on the land, no loss of penguins and it makes the land grow bigger and bigger. The more we do, the bigger the paradise the more rewards we get. The bigger the paradise The higher the greater, the better the paradise. And so my brothers and sisters don't think of Paradise as like one set amount of space. It keeps growing, the more that we do and the more that we get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and worship Him and letting you know, if it's some rah, rah Allah Subhana Allah is reminding us now to

00:39:07--> 00:39:08

give in

00:39:09--> 00:39:53

prosperity and adversity, control their anger, people who control their anger, and Lydia infrequent if you will. Well, Calvary mean and faith, those who control their anger and pardon others, right? forgive others someone harm you. It's okay. Right? Someone took away something that Bond's you. It's okay. I'll get something better. Right? You gave away something to someone else. It's okay. Don't worry hamdulillah it's fine. Allah will give me something better, right? And Allah loves those who do good. Right? Well, longer your head will Marcin, Allah loves those who do good when Latina either 30 or 30 shirt and over no more. And for some, that code of law her first of all is obey Him. When

00:39:53--> 00:39:55

many of you don't know but in a law when I'm using wirelend

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

yellow moon Allah Subhana Allah says they are

00:40:00--> 00:40:23

Those who who are these people, unless panamericana just finished mentioning, you know, people who hastened towards forgiveness, they want paradise rights and a huge paradise. It's prepared for them. They are those who donate in prosperity, right? they donate openly, secretly, lots of little amounts, right? A loss of handle, willing to accept whatever we give.

00:40:24--> 00:41:14

Those who control their anger, those who forgive or pardon others, Allah Subhana was added loves those who do good. Who are these people? They're those who, when they commit a sin, an evil deed, or wrong themselves over them and for someone that Carol law her fairstone photo live and obey Him. They remember a law and then seek forgiveness and do not knowingly persist in that sin. And who forgives sins except a law. Question mark. Right, who forgives sins except Allah? Allah Subhana Allah then says when am you said were identified to me Allah moon, right? Allah subhana wa Jalla is the one who forgive a woman Yo, fiddle, Doodle, but Illa Allah, what am used to identify the warm

00:41:14--> 00:41:54

yellow moon. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who forgives us of our sins with that you can just move on to never be imagenet a loss of hundreds and then blesses us with lots of things. But the point here, my brothers and sisters is that it's important for us to rush towards the forgiveness of Allah subhana wa tada when we make a mistake, it's fine. Allah subhana wa tada is pointing out that from the best of people of this earth are those who when they make a mistake, they rush to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's important. We need to do that. Allah knows that we're going to make mistakes. You made a mistake. You made a mistake. You made a mistake.

00:41:54--> 00:42:40

You made a mistake. You made a mistake, and I made a mistake, all of us. Right. But the beautiful thing about our Deen The beautiful thing about Allah, The beautiful thing that we learn from the Sunnah of Mohammed some along with it, who ascended them is that Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna loves to forgive, and he will forgive so long as we ask. And so ask my brothers and sisters and Allah subhana wa Jalla will forgive verse number 142. I'm hesitant to intend to hulu's agenda when I may add any level that enoggera huduma income where I massaged it in. Do you think that you're going to enter Paradise without a law proving which of you truly struggled for his cause and print and

00:42:40--> 00:43:16

patiently injured? You think you're just going to enter into paradise without a lesson plan with Allah testing us so that we have the ability to show Ya Allah? Here we are. Yeah, Allah. I'm ready. Let's go. I'm ready to give it all I've got 110% for you. All right. And so Allah Subhana Allah is asking us this question. Um, hasenhuttl and Ted, hello, gentlemen, you think you're going to enter into paradise without having gone through any hardships without being tested without you know in showing that you're able to endure? And so how to love

00:43:20--> 00:43:34

I'm going to ask my family upstairs to close the door please because they're the sound is basically bouncing back and forth. So Allah subhana wa tada here is showing us we need to endure when you think of it during Hajj, Nina, can you close the door upstairs?

00:43:36--> 00:44:16

When you're going for Hajj, and things are too hard, and someone comes beside you and puts their arm you know, locks their arm in your arm and says Bismillah heya. Let's go. And you're like, No, I can't go like no Bismillah we're going we're going to do this right. I remember not last hedge the hedge before, there was a brother who is having a really, really hard time walking. He got sores on his feet and blisters and stuff. And he couldn't go he was I don't I can't do this anymore. I can't do it. I'm like, hey, Bismillah we're gonna go. We have to do this. You came here for this. You came here for this. You came to sacrifice, you came to struggle, you came to seek forgiveness and

00:44:16--> 00:44:59

forgiveness is not easy. Gender is not easy. When someone leaves after performing their Hajj completely, perfectly according to the Sunnah. They return back to wherever they came from. Kay Yeoman, what adetokunbo as the day they were born, their mother gave birth to them. What is that day pure, pure pure purity. So how are they holding this baby in the hands? Pure. Right? No sins, no mistakes, no, hold on, no, nothing pure. A person who returns after enduring hardship for a loss of hand with Allah. Allah gives to that person, so much of this dunya and so much of the hero, but we need to make that sacrifice and we need to endure it.

00:45:00--> 00:45:42

has to be a struggle my brothers and sisters. So what we're going through right now in the world, this struggle is good. This struggle is needed. This struggle is real. We need to feel hardship in our lives in order for us to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala without this hardship, remember, and has seemed to enter the Hollywood agenda when a mayor the mila larina jahad woman Kumbaya Anima savini right, you think you're gonna go through this super easy without patiently enduring what Allah Subhana Allah has given to us and you're going to get the highest ranks of paradise? No way. No way be done about the alumni

00:45:43--> 00:46:23

below or the long run his footsteps were heard in Paradise, and the prophet SAW longer and he was sent them asks him What is it that you do that I heard your footsteps in paratis how to love brothers and sisters. If you're able, if you live in Milton, and you're able to look out the window, look out the window. Look at the sky. So Pamela I see pink and purple and shade all beautiful kinds of shades that no iPad can can replicate Subhana Allah such The sky is so beautiful right now, I actually want to leave this outside and look at it. Those of you who know me, you know I love I love the sky. I love to be in the sky.

00:46:24--> 00:46:28

You took pictures of it. So handleless a beautiful sky. Right?

00:46:29--> 00:47:02

And remember what I was saying? Someone reminded me I was talking about sacrificing and being patient and enduring below the alarm and his footsteps were heard in paradise the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is asking what do you do? Now think of it before we even know what below are the alarm and did Who is he? He's someone who his clothing was stripped of his body. He was placed on the hottest of surfaces right in the middle of the desert, with his skin burning with a stone going on top of him. And what is he doing? 100

00:47:03--> 00:47:47

He is not denouncing a loss of hand with Allah in his obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala at all at all. All that is beloved of the Lama and so what did he do that his footsteps are heard in paradise? Every time he made Woo, or the love and he would pray to God to allow some kind of water a simple thing he would follow through with the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, every time you make will do just pray to God. Right? you refresh your room, pray to it aka have Sunnah. The extra Sunnah prayers is what gets us to paradise my brothers and sisters. And so the patience that we endure in worshipping Allah subhana wa tada will take us the distance.

00:47:48--> 00:48:10

Then in verse number 176, when I zoom can Medina You said your own nephew Cofer old Prophet, do not grieve for those who raised to disbelief. Don't be saddened over those who choose to reject the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Surely they will not harm a lot in the least.

00:48:11--> 00:49:03

It is a laws will to dis allow them a share in the Hereafter, and they will suffer a tremendous punishment. My brothers and sisters, it isn't us. We want goodness and a loss of hand with Allah knows that we are sad when people reject a loss of kindness and he knows that we are sad when we see our family, our relatives, our friends, our neighbors, our colleagues, people who we know we interact with, who dis obey or who disbelieve in Allah subhana wa Adana, he knows that we're sad, and he's telling us Don't be sad, because it is not us who chooses the destiny of the person in the hereafter It is Allah. Don't be sad. Continue to invite continued to be good continue to call to the

00:49:03--> 00:49:25

way of Allah subhana wa Tada. If people choose it, they choose it. If they reject it, keep trying, you will feel sad, you will feel hurt. Allah knows that we will. But they are not doing what they're doing for us. They're doing it for a law or they're doing it for themselves. So we leave it at that my brothers and sisters

00:49:27--> 00:49:30

and then we move to verse number 175

00:49:31--> 00:49:42

verse number 175. of super early on, and I see someone else at our front door. So how to love this neighborhood is amazing.

00:49:43--> 00:49:47

It's like I'm intentionally recording down here or live streaming from down here.

00:49:49--> 00:49:50

Because

00:49:52--> 00:49:55

Manuel Lena if you're upstairs Hannah is at the door.

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

Sorry, man is his email. I know. That's Hannah.

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

Camilla, so she's at the door.

00:50:02--> 00:50:22

So some kind of law, you know, this family came by yesterday and drop some stuff off and they came today again and drop some stuff off kind of law. You know, such an amazing neighborhood to live in. And that's what's important. You know, you have good people. Then verse number 185, I'm suitor anemone, Allah Subhana. Allah says, Good alluded

00:50:31--> 00:50:32

to a feminine,

00:50:35--> 00:50:36

feminine

00:50:39--> 00:50:40

what would the female

00:50:45--> 00:50:47

woman hire to do

00:50:49--> 00:50:49

in

00:50:54--> 00:51:02

Los Angeles a showing us here and we'll conclude with this. I know there's just five minutes until actually what seven, seven minutes until the end

00:51:03--> 00:51:06

and loss of hundreds and is reminding us could you do nesting that you could

00:51:08--> 00:51:10

just make sure

00:51:12--> 00:51:14

I wasn't happy with that is reminding us nesting.

00:51:16--> 00:52:01

Every soul shall taste death, every soul shall taste death. And you will only receive your full reward on the day of judgment on brothers and sisters, sometimes we want our full reward in this dunya it will not come to us in this dunya our full reward will come to us in the reward looks kinda like you give $1 a loss of hundreds and it's not going to multiply that $700 and give you 700. Now, Allah Subhana Allah can multiply it however he wishes, whenever he wishes, in whatever form he wishes, whether in this dunya or later on, Allah can give it to us now, don't get me wrong, don't think Allah subhana wa tada can't write. And I encourage us the more we give, the more we get, the

00:52:01--> 00:52:14

more we continue to give them more content, we will be with a lot and the more the more pleased, we will be with giving, but also kind of Anna's reminding us what to do in a scene that you've gotten, every single one of us will taste the taste of death.

00:52:16--> 00:52:57

How that taste is is up to us, you know, you go to the kitchen, you smell the food, right you're cooking it is there, you either fry it, or you bake it or you roasted or you grill it or you know, there's different ways that you can cook it. And then when you taste the flavor of your food, it tastes different based on how it was cooked. Death can taste different based on how we cook ourselves in this life. And what I mean by cooking is how we prepare ourselves to leave this world. How are you marinating yourself right now? It's kind of weird to say that but it's true. How are we marinating ourselves right now? What are we what are we marinating our soul with and the way that we

00:52:57--> 00:53:22

what we marinate our souls with in our hearts, if it's goodness, than our soul will leave with ease. And if we're marinating our soul was sin and evil and bad, and it's just dark and gloomy inside of us, then we will return to a law in a very sad, very difficult, very hard state. My brothers and sisters will conclude with that for today come to the law.

00:53:23--> 00:54:05

We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to have mercy upon us, to grant us the best of this dunya and the ephemera to make us from amongst those whose fast is accepted to bless us with the reward of having fasted all day, and to bless us with the happiness and joy of standing before Allah subhanho wa Tana and being called into the gates of Runyan, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to have mercy upon every single one of us who is not able to fast for whatever reason, for it is not a punishment from Allah, rather Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen us to experience a different aspect of life and a different aspect of this Deen. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us ease and safety and

00:54:05--> 00:54:19

protection and mean just on the level of haven. We'll see all of you tomorrow once again in sha Allah, Baraka level ficam or some lower send them robotica Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Sallim wa Salaam wa Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
