I hope that everyone is doing well in sha Allah Allah. This is the second Friday after the month of Ramadan, a week of the month of Shadwell has already passed and as a reminder again to those who are motivated to embark upon the journey of fasting an extra six days and I call it a journey because for some people fasting is not easy. And there may be some days of fasting that needs to be made up. And it may be a little bit difficult for some of us to you know to fast those extra days. So as a reminder once again, that the month of Shadwell is ongoing, and the rewards for fasting are great. Having said that, my brothers and sisters today in sha Allah to Allah, we see what's going on in the
world. And in fact, we heard just yesterday that there was a seize fire that was happening between the
Palestinians and Iranians, sorry, Israelis, Palestinians and Israelis yesterday.
And already just fast forward, not even 24 hours later, we see that that was not really this. We saw on you know, media outlets that you know, many of the Muslims were being targeted and being shot at using rubber, you know, ammunition
at mustard, aka at mustard oxide, a place where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would turn and face a direction where Allah subhanho wa Taala legislated for the Muslims to face in their prayer in their swana in their a bada until that command was given to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to turn and face for one leverage hacker shop all masjidul how
to turn into face musty them how long now my brothers and sisters, what are we seeing happening in the world? Not only in Palestine. But what are we seeing happening to
our brothers and sisters in Syria?
What are we seeing happening to children and orphans whose parents were killed and murdered? What are we seeing happening in East Turkistan? What about in Myanmar and Burma?
What about in Central Africa?
What about in Kashmir? What about Afghanistan or Iraq? Pakistan? Many countries around the world where there are so many injustice is happening right now? Brothers and Sisters Today's topic is about I did justice. Allah subhanho wa Taala I listen we hear this usually at the end of every Jamal hotbar when we're standing in the masjid for the hookah or the Habib is standing and everyone is sitting down listening to the hookah. Just before we start the prayer we usually will hear that Imam quote from Surah two verse number 19 where Allah subhanho wa Taala says in law the moon will be largely well if
carry well Bobby Yeah, you
Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in Surah two verse number 90.
Indeed unlock justice in the La Jolla movie loudly. Well, son,
what ether is in Korba? Allah Subhana Allah mentions three things here that as Muslims we need to uphold, we need to focus on and today I want to focus on I did justice, Justice in the La Jolla Manuel de langue Allah subhanho wa Taala commands, justice. What is justice? Now when we look at justice course, as human beings, especially in the world that we're living in nowadays, we will very quickly respond online on social media and try to do justice as best as we possibly can, given the circumstances and given the tools that we have to use, for example, phones or tablets or devices or computers, right? It could even be smartwatches that we use to connect with the world we use to
share a message we used to send or deliver a statement message to others. But Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the law, what will be loudly, will SM justice and grace as well as courtesy close relatives. So my brothers and sisters when we talk about this topic of justice
it's not just justice for human beings around the world, Justice in every shape and form. Let's take an example of justice in our lives with regards to our own selves. In fact, let's take many examples insha Allah to Allah justice is to do what is right and what Allah subhanho wa Taala encourages without taking the rights of others without harming someone else without causing any sort of destruction.
ultimately, is in the hands of Allah subhana wa Tada.
But when we think of doing what's right,
we have to remember what Allah subhana wa tada says about doing justice. He says idi Lu wa Acropolis taqwa right? Be honest, be fair be just
that is closer to piety that is closer to taqwa. Now, what is tough? Well, we know very well if we're talking about just talking about tequila, then tequila in itself, we could say that it is like being conscious and aware of Allah subhanho wa Taala, at all times, doing what Allah Subhana Allah wants from us at all times, making sure that they're not going to harm the rights of others or do anything that is wrong.
And displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala at all times.
Which means if we're going to
and it's linked to justice, bear with me for a second here. And justice is closer to piety. That means, in every shape and form of everything that goes on in our lives, we need to be thinking of a law and not taking away the rights of others.
And just because the rights of others are taken away, doesn't mean that as Muslims, we have the right to take away the rights of others as well. Now what I mean by this is,
my brothers and sisters,
Allah subhanho wa Taala has shown us in the Quran, as well as the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how to be. And when we, when we see what's happening in the world, that's a higher level of justice. A lot of the time it's not in our hands. But let's focus first off on ourselves, because we always say that Allah subhanaw taala will not change the condition of a people until they change that which is within themselves. And Allah subhanaw taala says that not us, right? It's Allah who teaches us that now, if that's the case, then how is my Salah?
Am I doing justice in my preparation for Salah for prayer? You see, my brothers and sisters when we want change in the world, I have to ask myself, am I submitting to Allah in the way that he wants? So that when I do raise my hands and ask Allah when they do bow down and make or make such that and place my head down to the ground, and submit to Allah azza wa jal to the creator of all of humanity.
Am I doing what's right? In preparation for that in order for my daughter, my
Prayer my supplications to even be accepted.
You see when I think of preparing for prayer
Am I just rushing through it?
Am I washing myself properly?
Am I making sure that the elbows are washed? Am I making sure that I'm doing my massage properly? Right? Am I making sure that I'm washing my hands according to the way of Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Am I making sure that I'm not wasting too much water? Am I making sure that I'm not taking away the comfort of another person who may be waiting outside of the bathroom door in order to use them? Sometimes people only have one washroom in their home, and a child or a parent or sibling needs to use the bathroom and we're like, oh, too bad. I'm in here and weak our time and we take away the rights of another person to go into the bathroom to relieve themselves. Right? Are we
actually fulfilling the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala in preparation for prayer.
So we start with Sadat, and the preparation for Salah. Now when I'm standing in prayer, am I doing justice to Allah subhanho wa Taala is my mind focused on my prayer
is my body cleaned and purified?
Is my heart clean and my thoughts pure from evil? As I'm standing in prayer, I might be thinking bad if someone else I might be thinking like going and doing something. That's how long I might be playing out to go somewhere that I'm not even allowed to go to or meet with someone I'm not allowed to meet with or do something or consume something that I'm not even allowed to consume.
So in the prayer itself in my doing justice to Allah subhanho wa to add
our recitation of Salah of Quran insula in prayer, I might doing justice, how many years of our lives do we live? Same tomorrow I will start to learn to recite and better tomorrow I will open the Quran. Tomorrow, I will try to perfect my Tajweed my recitation of the Quran Tomorrow, I will try to become a better Muslim. And tomorrow turns into the difference 65
or 70 or 75 years old, or the day we're diagnosed with some sort of illness or disease, or the day that we feel we may be returning to a law very soon. And then we realize
I waited too long.
It's too late.
My brothers and sisters
inshallah itself, there's so many things we can focus on. So I'm not going to go any deeper. Let's transition.
Sorry, I have the window open because our AC isn't working so well. So the noise in the background forgive it.
Let's transition justice related to us.
Our own health when you think of your health, when you think of your stomach, for example, how much food do we put into our stomach now that Ramadan is over? How much are we eating that is harmful to our health? How much exercise am I doing? That is encouraged in the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala and my action actually fulfilling that upon myself? Am I doing justice to my health? Am I doing justice to my family and looking after my health, making sure that as I live throughout this life,
I'm helping my family to be healthy and helping myself to be healthy to look after them. Am I doing justice in that way? And you know, my brothers and sisters something really important and really interesting. When we think of justice for other human beings. There are many protests, there are demonstrations, there are rallies, there are social media posts, there are videos, there are things that we could send and share all over the world. Human beings will gather in masses when we see that others are need of some sort of justice, that human beings will not gather in masses, when we are not eating healthy.
When we are not praying our prayers correctly, when we are not doing justice to our own selves, when our children are suffering our children living in our own homes, who we may be providing for and we as parents say they're spoiled. Are we doing justice to them?
are we speaking to them in a correct manner, a way that we want them to speak to others.
Similar to that, to that method in the future
Am I saying and using words with my children with my family with my spouse?
That I would appreciate them to repeat to others? Am I doing justice to my tongue?
Am I doing justice to my ears by only listening to what is permitted and what is halal and what is good? Or am I sitting listening to gossip?
am I sitting listening to backbiting? am I sitting listening to how long
and then with the same ears, with the same mouth with the same hands that we consume things that may be how or do things that may be how long maybe in our earnings, our wealth that we are seeking for ourselves to provide for our children, we might notice that the same ears, the same mouth, same eyes, the same ends, the same arms, the same legs, the same body, we turn to Allah after doing so much how long we turn to Allah subhanho wa tada and expect Allah to grant justice to who
we are not doing justice in our submission to Allah.
We are not rallying and petitioning to do justice to out and to Allah subhanho wa Taala to our Creator.
And we then in return, expect justice to come from Allah,
for ourselves and our family and our relatives and friends.
It doesn't fit.
It doesn't match. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says de leeuw will occur a bullet taqwa.
When you have that justice in every aspect, every component of your life that is closer to piety.
And when we have that level of piety, that taqwa that Eman that is increasing within us, it takes just one of us. It takes just one of us
to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And to beg, and ask and request and state and point out in justices around the world. And like this, Allah will bring that change.
It takes just one.
But the question is, is my heart pure enough?
My brothers and sisters, we will never be 100% pure. I know some of you are sitting there. Some of you even messaging me. You know what? hamdulillah good. But don't forget the people of Palestine, I see the messages. We're talking about the people of Palestine and all the people of the world that are being oppressed. My brothers and sisters, that change begins with us. We can't just keep pressing buttons on our phones. We can't just keep sending messages to others. We can't just keep swiping non stop.
A simple tip that I put on social media a few days ago and I will share with you as well here.
My brothers and sisters, the time that we spend watching videos about injustices happening to other human beings. The time we spend posting and typing out and forwarding messages on WhatsApp on telegram on signal on Tick Tock on Facebook, on YouTube and snapchat on Instagram.
Add up that time.
And as a tip, make dua to a law
for at least an equal amount of time that we are watching and posting and typing and forwarding on social media accounts. spend that time in dwara begging Allah for that help.
We can't expect to just share things with the world all the time. And then just say Allah will help us. Allah is looking for our sacrifice. Allah is looking for our submission to him. Allah subhana wa tada Allah is checking who's waking up for 200
who's waking up for 200 and I say this all the time and I'll say it as a reminder to myself first, when we are truly in need of something when we need just this for our health to come from Allah because we were diagnosed with something we turn to oil in the middle of the night when we need justice to come from a law because we lost our job.
We turn to Allah in the middle of the night, when we need justice for help to come from Allah, because our children need to go to university need to find a good spouse are going through hardship in their marriages, or you know, there's an issue with the grandchildren or whatever the case is, we beg from Allah subhanho wa Taala in the middle of the night.
If what we see happening to human beings around the world
doesn't wake us up at night, then maybe it's just not important enough.
And we could say and post the most powerful messages on social media.
But something's missing.
Justice towards ourselves,
in submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala had
fix the way that I speak.
Fix the way that I listen to things. If I hear something that's wrong, and how long for me to listen to, I should
fix the things that I look at, and only look at that which is handled for me.
How many times do we hear the example of mammas Shafi or Hema? Hola who complained to his teacher walk here?
Shut Shaco to Isla work here is so heavy, right? He complained to his teacher about his memory being weak.
And what did his teacher tell him? Look at this look at this example of a teacher and a student. He Namah Shafi Rahim Allah we know who he is, right? The famous scholar of the deen. He complains to his teacher about his memory being weak. He remembers that he saw something of a woman that was not permitted for him to see what
just above her ankle, just above her ankle, a simple example. something so small that affected his memory.
Why? Because the nor of a loss of Hannah water that comes to those who protect themselves from the harm that's in this world.
If you want to hide and goodness in your life, if you want to see your dog being accepted, if you want to recognize the help of Allah happening in our lives, we need to cut out the thing that are held on around us and repel them by putting up a barrier between us and those items.
So he saw the leg just above the ankle of a woman
who is not Muharram or he is not madam for
and that affected his memory
that affected his memory. Someone who would look at a page of writing and memorizing it, and memorize it. He had photographic memory. He saw something that affected his memory. And that was because the news of loss of Henry Tanner doesn't come when we let them into our lives, whether through our eyes or through our mouth or yours or our actions, our thoughts, our heart
and soul, my brothers and sisters, when we're out and about and there are things that are held on around us. Don't go towards it. Don't go towards it physically. Don't go towards it mentally. Don't go towards it. It spiritually and emotionally in our hearts wanting what is how long No, don't desire it.
Don't go towards anything that is wrong and head on protect yourselves. And then you'll be doing justice to yourself. And then you'll be able to seek justice even more efficiently for other human beings on earth. Because the duala
of the ones who are closer to Allah is no doubt more powerful than the doer of those who commit sins day night. And we all commit sins, but consciously willingly knowingly. making an effort to go and commit a sin is very different than someone who's committing a sin.
By mistake or not intentionally not premeditating it. So my brothers and sisters in Allah, yet Moodle be loudly well, Essen will eat either. corba Allah indeed commends justice, Grace as well as courtesy to close relatives weigh in her annual fascia you will moon carry well Bobby
And he forbids indecency, wickedness and aggression.
Yeah Are you locked into that?
And he Allah instructs you. So perhaps you will be mindful, love. Perhaps we will be mindful, the next time that we use indecent language, the next time that we are wicked with someone else, the next time that we are hard and use aggression with others, whether in our speech and for some people, whether yours will be Allah, may Allah protect us all from being physically hard upon others.
Allah reminds us so that perhaps we can keep it in our memory, perhaps we will turn to Allah with Better Behavior, treating other people in a nicer way.
My sisters, we need to purify our hearts, remove the hatred in our hearts towards others. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I will end with this, the problem where Allah your sanlam
would wish for goodness towards others,
wish for the defense of others wish for the strength that people use against Islam to be used for Islam.
wish for people's intellect, further knowledge and wisdom to be used towards conveying the message of Islam towards others. The same way that people use things in this world to do injustice. We should make do and wish that they use that wisdom and knowledge and strength and power and might in ways to do justice.
My brothers and sisters, may Allah subhana wa Allah have mercy upon every single one of us and every single person that is going through hardship and oppression of this world. We conclude by sending Peace and blessings upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah on my Sunday Allah Mohammed Ali Mohammed cameras on later, Allah Ibrahima were early Ibrahima in Hamid and Majeed or Baraka, Allah, Muhammad Ali Mohammed, come about Dr. Anna Ibrahim, our early Ibrahima Indigo hamidah Majeed,
