How can an errand equal might be that my brothers and sisters today is the 29th of January 2021.
And today marks an important today
in our history as Muslims here in Canada, but before we get into that in sha Allah, Allah, we want to understand one of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the name of Allah, Allah bossier.
celibacy as one of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala is found in the Quran approximately 42 times okay 42 times and Allah Basia is the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That means the old seen, Okay, last week we spoke about a semi, the all hearing as Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who hears everything and is able to understand everything that goes on without us even being able to hear it. And so he hears the call of the one who's making dua or the cry of the one who's making dua, in the silence of the night when their family is asleep and they are just internalizing that Doral, Allah subhanho wa Taala a semi hears it and that's what we learned last week. Today we're focusing on the
fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala is a little bossy as well, okay.
So he is the one who sees everything, whatever is apparent invisible to us. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah Basia is aware of it, and whatever we don't see, Albacete is aware of that as well. Now typically, a lot of people would think to themselves Okay, so the things that we don't see are like the creation of a law that we don't see like the gin, right. Oh, bossier can see the gin. We don't. Okay. Well, bossier has the ability to see everything, including the things that we may not even think of at times.
So for example, bossier, the whole scene, a lot of the one who sees everything, he could see the ENT in the ant hole, or in that little tunnel that they've dug in the middle of the ground, somewhere in some country underneath our own house may be right where the ends are living right now. they possibly could be walking in and out of our homes, and we don't even know it, but Alessia is aware of it. Allah subhanho its addressee is the ENT, and sees the fish in the bottle in the bottom of the ocean or the bottom of the sea, and is aware of what that fish is in need of and aware of what that fish is eating and consuming, and Albacete is bringing other you know, food for those fish as well.
As bossier sees the blood that flows through our veins and goes to our heart and pumps through our hearts. Obasi, you see is what we see from our eyes, whether we can even see from our eyes or not. Before we even see what we're going to see and look at a bus see it is aware of it. Right? Allah subhanho wa Taala is aware of everything. So he's not only Albacete. He's not only a seminar, he's not only an Eileen, he's not only a Lackey, he has all of that combined together, and more. And so that's what makes you know, one of the things or one of the the aspects are the parts of loss of how to avoid data that makes him so amazing to us is that there are so many complexities, so many things
that are going on that bossier sorry, C is aware of it.
So, as I said, like the blood that's flowing through our veins, we don't see it, but Basia is aware of what's going on, and he's able to see it, he can see how our heart is functioning. He can see what our lungs look like.
Like without even taking an X ray, right and i will see him knows what we can seal within us as well. Right? And so this is why it's important for us to learn many of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala to try and tie them all in a less accountable way to Allah says in the Quran, laser Kenneth Lee Shane
was semirara balsley there is none
like a law or similar to a lot lace I can meet Lee shake, nothing. Nothing is similar to a loss of Hannah what Tiana? Well, who were and he is a semi elbasy. Now why do we say that nothing is similar to a loss of handwheels either we learned a little bit about this last week, part of our belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala as a seven year old Basia Li Li Mo Habiba al Hakim and so on and so forth is believing that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has certain attributes, those that he mentioned to us in particular, and so Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran,
while spiritedly hooked me up big for in
cabbie, are you Nina, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah tells us so be patient, with your Lord's decree, what Allah has has decreed what Allah has planned for us, be patient with it. And Allah says for in naked the air unit, for you very or truly are under our watchful eyes. So an Basia a law is showing us he says, The inika be our uni now. His eyes
We leave that up to a law, what his eyes look like how his eyes are, how big they are, how small they are, are they shaped this way or that way and so on and so forth. We leave that to Allah subhanho wa Taala. None of us knows and none of us should even try to comprehend or try to explain, you know, further details, in addition to what Allah subhana wa Jana has already explained to us, so whatever Allah has revealed to us, we leave it at that anything more than that we should refrain from doing that. And so, Allah Subhana with Allah is Obama said he sees everything he has eyes. So part of us believing in Allah is believing that Allah is able to see everything. And if he described
himself as being able to see through his watchful eyes, then we leave it at that Allah Subhana water Anna has watchful eyes. In verse number 30 of Sunil Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala states that he gives in abundance in a lot, right? A lot provides for us a lot. You open your fridge, you have loads of food in there, you go to your kitchen cupboard, you have loads of food in there, you pick up your phone, and you go to Uber Eats or any restaurant menu and you choose whatever it is that you want, you have the choice and beyond, right, and they also can return and make it easy for us to be able to have that choice and beyond in this life and in the Hereafter. But Allah subhana wa Tana
also mentions in the same verse, so to sum up, verse number 30, he mentions how he has or he gives in abundance, or in a limited provision, sometimes a lot doesn't give us the ability to pick up the phone and even make that Uber Eats delivery or, you know, make that order and have it brought to our home or to go and pick it up in the restaurant or to even go and buy groceries, milk and eggs or sometimes even, you know the ability to pay the water bill to be able to drink some water. And so Allah gives in abundance, but sometimes he restricts it, he limits it. And he then says at the end of this verse,
he does this in abundance or in a limited format to whoever he wills for certainly, he is all aware of all seen, which means a lot is completely and entirely aware of our situation, whatever it is that we're going through, whether ease or difficulty, whether happiness and joy or you know, hardship and sadness and you know, even depression and anxiety and stress or severe
Allah Hakim Al Habib, Allah subhana wa Jalla is aware of everything.
And he sees what we are going through. So my brothers and sisters, there should never be a time in our lives that we feel alone. There should never never be a time in our lives that we feel disconnected from our Creator except in the case that we are disconnecting ourselves from him. So when we reject a law
Then it's normal for someone to feel disconnected from their Creator. But the creator doesn't disconnect himself from those who disconnect themselves from him. What did we learn in the past that even though people may disbelieve in Allah, he still provides food for them, he still gives them shelter, he still grants them protection, he still is making their heartbeat and their blood rush through their body and you know, the the lungs, purifying the air and absorbing the oxygen and, and letting go of the the gases that are no good. So kind of all of these things are happening even though people reject a lawsuit.
So he's merciful.
He is a little bossy.
my brothers and sisters,
I mentioned at the beginning, that today is the 29th of January.
And you'll notice that I have this right here, right, this green square, this green square is important on this day.
For us as Muslims,
we were shaken to our core on the 29th of January 2017.
That marked a day
who typically come to the mosque or to a Masjid to pray, were targeted by someone who did an evil act.
And his consequences we leave with a loss of Hannah Montana.
But we need to focus on what's important for us. And I remember clearly, the Jumeirah right after that incident,
something absolutely strange happened right here in our Masjid, while I was delivering the Juma Kota.
I was delivering the cookbook.
And as I was speaking to one of the speakers, in fact, it wasn't even a speaker. It was I think, you know, one of the breakers or something had shorted and the amplifier for the speakers of the microphone that I was that I was delivering the lecture through, had completely stopped. But when it stopped, it made a really loud like, sound.
And what I saw in front of me, was Muslims, community members, sitting attentively listening to the drama of football, literally jumping up in one stance just straight up on their feet looking around nervous as those something was just about to happen as though their lives were going to end.
And I thought to myself, Subhana Allah, look at the condition of the oma look at how within a split second, immediately, every single person was still remembering, still thinking, what happened not too long ago
in Quebec City,
where that shooter came in and took the lives
of not only six Muslims,
but injured many more Muslims, and destroyed
some of their families
really putting through putting them through some difficulty. I personally visited the homes of every single one of those six brothers that lost their lives. And I visited the homes of some of the other brothers that were shot in that Masjid. And I visited some of them who were still in the hospital. One of the brothers in the community is a doctor and he brought us to the hospitals to visit some of the brothers that were still in the hospital after the event had happened. And I personally, you know, met the wives of all of these brothers, I sat with the children of these brothers. In fact, my sunglasses that I had just purchased in Medina, on my way back, we went to Quebec City, and you
know, the children of one of the brothers, you know, they were playing they had, they were jumping all over me, they took my sunglasses off, and they just bent them and distorted them and broke them and I was completely fine.
Because I thought to myself, these children need us to be their
supporters. These children are climbing all over us, as a few brothers and sisters who went to visit these families to offer some help, and to grant them a little bit of comfort through maybe visiting them and spending some time with them. These children are growing up. Four years later, we see our government and how
The law handed in law, many thanks to all of the Islamic organizations, first of all, many things to all of the, all of the organizations I should say out there, whether Islamic, you know, run by Muslims or not many thanks to all of the, you know, politicians, or you know, people who are influential to imams to families, to children who stood up and said, this is wrong, we need to change. We need this to be recognized. So I can't list all of the different people who have contributed towards what we saw being announced yesterday. The declaration of January 29, being the National Day of Remembrance of Quebec City, mosque attack, and action against Islamophobia. Allahu
Akbar, Allahu Akbar, what an amazing achievement. What an amazing achievement. And some people will wonder and ask themselves what was achieved.
What was achieved, in a nutshell, is
a little voice
shared with the whole nation,
that we as Muslims get targeted, and we face hardships, and this needs to stop. How many Muslims run food banks? How many Muslims are doctors and nurses currently right now working the frontlines helping our entire community? Right? How many Muslims are teachers and educators in schools and administrators in you know, educational institutions? How many Muslims are counselors and therapists, how many Muslims are contributing in every way, shape or form just because you don't fit that category of the four or five, you know, professions that I mentioned, we are all trying to do goodness, a huge part of our Deen is to look after the society that we live in, whether they are
Muslim or not
looking after our neighbors, looking after the people we reside next, and every single one of us taking that responsibility to look after our neighborhood contributes to the entire community being looked after by the Muslims, it's our responsibility. And so Al Hamdulillah This is an achievement that the government recognizes that yes, we have been targeted, and we are still being targeted, and this will inshallah, who to how to be the first step or one of the steps forward to stop us from being targeted. Now, you wonder what the green square is about.
The nccm started a campaign A while back, the green square campaign. And the green square represents the green carpet, that those
it represents the green carpet, that those brothers
and sisters that were sisters there as well.
Were standing on
when that event took place.
And I was blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I know some people would say that's not a blessing, it is a blessing. I was blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. To not only stand on that same carpet,
to not only pray inside of there, mustard, I was blessed with the opportunity to lead the prayers there to teach that community, something of the deen that I had within me that I had learned. And I was blessed with the opportunity to stand
in spots where there was blood that had dried and stained after being cleaned. It stained the carpet.
And it took them some time
to even change that carpet.
Or to have it properly cleaned. And I was blessed with the opportunity to put my hand on the glass where there were bullet holes through the window. And why do I say this is a blessing. I say that this is a blessing for me personally, because it's a learning experience. It's an opportunity for me to be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala for all that I have. It's an opportunity for me to be able to give first hand stories and first hand experience to the people that I meet. It's an opportunity to motivate myself to do what I feel is right and what's good and what's needed within our communities and all the communities across this nation and across the world. It's an opportunity my brothers and
sisters, for us to stand strong and come together, to be united to be people that
Look after the goodness of each other, like brothers and sisters, the green square is just a reminder, a reminder and of course, what that cared for in Africa. 10 very remote meaning Allah Subhana Allah is telling us in the Quran to be reminded right? Well that cared for in the cotton very remote meaning that's remembrance benefits the believer, when we remember the hardships of the people of the past,
we remember the difficulties that the people of the past endured, whether for their obedience or for their disobedience in Allah subhanho wa Taala, it should change us. We should become better. We should recognize our position and who we are, and time this into Albacete. Allah subhana wa Jalla told Musan Harun Allah Hema center, when he sent Moosa with his brother Houghton to go and speak to fit.
Right there. I love that car.
Maybe he would remember that his position is not that position that he claimed, oh yeah. Or he'd become fearful of the punishment of a loss of cannibal attack.
But he tells Musan Harun Ali Hema Sanam
in any mera Kuma
he tells Moosa and Harun
I am with both of you as smart one Well, I hear I'm aware of everything that you're going through. And I see your hardship Don't worry, I will be watching over you. I will be listening to your journey. When you go and you communicate with moose with with their own, I will be watching over you. And so he sends a muscle can with Anna sends these two profits, one a profit, and the other a profit and a messenger to go and speak to fit our own was the leader of those people, right? Who was, you know, considered the king of those people at the time to try and bring about change.
Brothers and sisters, we have to be the ones who take that action.
We have to be the ones who respectfully come as a loss of hand with Allah told them for all level Cole and Lena, speak in a nice, beautiful manner. Try to convey a message that is understood, make people comprehend what it is that you're saying. And don't just deliver a message that just goes in an ear and out shake the hearts of the listeners, not in a bad evil way, but in a way that makes them want to do more goodness. And that's our responsibility. My brothers and sisters elbow sleeve knows what we're going through and bossier, you know, was fully aware of what happened on the 29th and the 29th and eighth of January in 2017. bossier till today, is still overlooking, not only us,
but those children whose fathers were taken away from them. Those widows whose husbands never returned home that night. So Pamela, one of the, in fact, all of them, but one of the sisters, one of those widows when she was telling us the story,
in her living room, of how she kept calling and calling and calling and calling her husband's cell phone, and he never answered.
And her friends were telling her, just wait, just wait, don't worry, I'm sure he's fine. He must be helping others.
And then she went from hospital to hospital to hospital, looking for her husband.
And no one giving her an answer.
until the following day.
Imagine spending your whole night trying to find your husband in the city that you live in. And it's not like a massive city. You know, just in the area that you live in. You're trying to find your husband who went to the mosque to pray and never came home and still never came home.
But where did they go? They returned to a loss of Hannah Montana.
In the house of a loss of Hannah water. We see that as a blessing and honor. an honor. Yes, it's difficult. But every single every single one of those families had accepted and had stated that their loved ones returned to a law with honor a lot of
my brothers and sisters, how will we return to a law
some of us will return to Allah in the comforts of our homes. And we ask Allah to make it easy for us to live throughout this life and not go through any hardship or difficulty.
But remember my brothers and sisters
We need to work towards doing good.
And our good deeds are not gone unnoticed. Allah bossier
knows Allah who is Allah bossier. He is all singing he sees the good deeds that we do.
And I remember going back to the mosque one year after the shooting happened
and the boots of those brothers were still sitting on the shelf where they had left them.
The boots, those winter boots of those brothers, were still sitting on the shelf where they had left them in
the mosque and the community members just couldn't move them
and left them right there.
In the house of Allah Subhana Allah Allah, what a beautiful thing. What an amazing opportunity.
Our hearts should be tied to the massage.
We should be linked to Allah subhanho wa Taala through the massage.
If you have a minute,
throughout your week,
you know we've been staying home and we go do groceries and we're told to stay home. So we try and do our part. But if you have a minute when you're doing your groceries and you're on your way home, just drive past the masjid. As a reminder,
as a reminder for you and your family. This is the house of a loss accountable dad, we should be doing our part financially as well. Looking after the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala
for that community is still struggling as well.
To fix and to repair and to secure their Masjid from an attack
that may come again in the future. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to save us all, to grant us good goodness in his life and in the Hereafter. And
Allah Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala See, you know when you've never heard whether it was it was suddenly a lot of marriages in Islam or when wasn't it me? What is Islam and Muslims? A lot mostly linear what I was looking at where I've seen a
