My brothers and sisters?
If you were told, or I was told that this was the last year of our life,
what would you do?
How would you change yourself?
How would we make a such that?
When the such that be the same way it always was.
When we're praying and we make a real court? Would the court be the same way that it always was? When we raise our hands and make up? Would we still be making your offer things of this dunya? Or would we have transitioned to make to Allah for forgiveness and things that we will benefit from in the afternoon?
When we speak to our family members? Would we still be speaking to them in a way that is rude, disrespectful, overpowering, sometimes too direct? Or if this was my last year when I start to have some sympathy
Upon my children and my spouse,
would I start to connect more with my neighbors? Would I connect with the massage? And would I devote myself to the Quran? Would I give extra sadaqa? Or would I hold on to it and say I need it for a rainy day knowing that this is the last year of my life?
My brothers and sisters, Ramadan is coming close.
None of us knows if this will be our last Ramadan.
So the beginning of this hookah is to encourage us to make sure that we prepare and plan for this album.
Take the Quran out,
perform an oil change on the hearts.
Don't wait for the first day of Ramadan and say where's my? Where's my musket? Take it out from now.
dust it off.
Prepare, what am I going to read? What is my goal for this month?
How much do I want to recite? And how much do I want to understand?
How many lectures related to the Quran? Will I dedicate my time towards throughout this month?
What about the sutras or that I add or the Jews that I've memorized already? Have I practice them and revise them enough?
Am I planning to do that throughout this whole model?
You see my brothers and sisters also kind of want to Allah says clearly to us in the Quran.
Call me to choir.
My team also reject me
that moon 81 to me
almost hanwa data reminds us that we as an oma
despite coming at the end of all the profits.
All of the prophets and messengers came before us before the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam despite being from the end, we are from the best country.
Why are we from the best rune and the barrows you attend?
you encourage people towards good and you discourage them in yourselves from evil. Want to
believe in the law?
Now how do we navigate this? I want to be from amongst these people. I want to share in the claim to fame standing before a law on the day of judgment that I am from amongst that oma, I am those people. I am with those people. I stand with them because they speak with me. And we did the same things. So the question is, what things are we supposed to do? And this is where a Muslim boy
teaches us the importance of this.
long reminds us that the plan was revealed throughout the month of Ramadan. Okay, that's good.
What's important about that, though, is it comes
to that in asking what they need it
is our guide.
It shows us where to go. We need to reconnect every single year
in order to be from amongst the best of the best people in order to give a great example to our children of how they are to live when we meet this world. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make it easy for us to start this journey with the Quran. From today.
akuto probably had a special walk for Schofield.
111 of the I mean, without the opinion on Sunday what we're sending we're getting early making a formal sadhana for coming to see my brothers and sisters this morning. The first message that I read when I connected
myself to the internet
was a message of a good friend of a very genuine brother. One of the most hospitable people I've met,
This brother was a board member of the masjid, in Cambridge, the ICC.
He was so dedicated to the masjid not only in his in his Allah, but dedicated to the masjid in terms of giving his finances, giving his time his wife also is dedicated working for the school at the masjid. And just like that, when you least expect it to the people, and the person that you least expect will be taken back to a wasp habit.
Just like that. He's gone in them and learned one thing that related logic. Why do I mention this? What guarantee Do I have that I will reach the month of Ramadan?
I just finished expressing the importance of using the month of amaan to reconnect with a plan to dusted off to plan to prepare to set goals to achieve. But what guarantee Do I have that I will reach the month of Ramadan this year. And every single year, every single year, before the month of Ramadan, there's at least one person that we find out about that passed away just weeks or days for us before the month of Ramadan begins.
And so my brothers and sisters, I asked the question again, what if this was my last year to live?
What would I do?
How do I change? What type of person would like to come? And so start from today, my brothers and sisters. Start right now. Be passionate, be zealous, be connected to a law. Right before we started the football, you'll see one of the brothers came and spoke to me right here. And I thank him from the bottom of my heart. I don't see him I don't know where he went. But he was holding one of these boxes. And he said, you know these boxes said yes, these are very important. You should encourage every single person to bring these home. And to take action on these. We all have to do our part. And you need to mention this in the book. This is what he told me, You need to tell the community
take the ball in
his passion, his desire for playing for goodness is there and seen. And the loss of power went to Allah recognizes it. I don't need to point it out. I don't need to identify this person. This person is genuine and sincere, looking for the betterment of the whole community. That we need our mustard in the future. Our children will be here when we're gone.
our grandchildren will be here when we're gone.
But I don't even know if I will pray here tonight.
So start you start now. Get ready for one. Prepare yourself mentally. Prepare yourself spiritually. Prepare yourself physically prepare yourself financially in every aspect of life. And give for the sake of a loss of having
these boxes my brothers and sisters to drive the point home or for you to take home. And we encourage every single family to take one if you took one already. Leave it behind for someone else. If you haven't taken one pick it.
Take it with you, every single family to raise a minimum of $300 throughout the month of all along. That's it for our family to raise 300 I know many of us sitting here will say I'll give 300 No, no, we don't want you to just give 300 300 and we want another 300 drink and hold on for your family to race. And you'll see the bottom kind of that comes from we did this two years ago. That's why some of the boxes still have the 2019 sticker. And the bar kind of that came from we were hoping to raise $3,000 from 1000 families who raise $300 each. That's it Look how easy it is. We have $1,300,000 left to pay on this question. And look at the Baraka that also cannot adequate in two years ago when
the number was higher. We got back $498,000 in one month
without doing the fundraising with your dedication, your hard work and the blessings of Allah
cannaboids added the Baraka that comes into it, you might think to yourself, I didn't raise 300 and we opened the box and there's 700
leave it to all, do your part and Allah will do the rest. We conclude by saying Peace and blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one was on the ground
an hour or so.
