Bismillah alameen wa sallahu wa to why he was Salam. ala Nabi Hill Karim, Allah of Masada to itema tasleem rubbish Ronnie Saudi way acidity Embrey or hammerlock that Emily Sani of Gabor Bodhi, my brothers and my sisters a set him where they come or a little while he will work out.

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

So

00:00:20--> 00:01:07

the way technology works is that I begin the session, two of you are watching 40 of you are now getting a notice that two of you are watching and you should join as well. And as I'm saying this, five more of you have joined. And 50 more people have gotten to notice that seven or eight of you are online watching. And so they start to join. And so when you start these online sessions that are live, you are pretty much all by yourself until you start to see people trickle in. The downside to that is that when the class starts, people are literally trickling in because they're in the middle of doing things. So all of what you've been hearing me say so far has just been the ramblings of

00:01:07--> 00:01:26

myself going on and on. As we wait for people to trickle in. Some of you benefited and enjoyed a laugh out of that rambling of mine. And others of you are probably sitting there going well, what on earth is he talking about? That's okay. Because every single one of us goes through things in life that just don't make sense.

00:01:29--> 00:01:45

Have the lie I hope everyone is doing well in sha Allah. That's just me, you know, stalling and buying some time so that people are you know, able to click on the link and start joining the session. We have you on four or five, six different locations and hamdulillah.

00:01:47--> 00:02:29

It's Friday night, and we typically go through our essential thick No, sorry, we typically go through our etiquettes class, right Friday night. But I was talking about a few things with quite a few people today because of the announcement that was made for us in Ontario to be going through stage or entering into step two of reopen, sorry, entering into step three of reopening from next Friday and shot a lot of data. And what does that mean for us here in the masjid in the community and so on? Well, for us in the mustard, it doesn't really change much. I'll be totally honest with you, it just changes some fingers that doesn't actually change anything on the ground. What it means

00:02:29--> 00:03:14

is that we will be allowed to open at full capacity while still maintaining the six foot distancing. Physical distancing between each person that's within the masjid for our congregation, therefore, allowing us to still only gather a maximum number of people that we have been able to gather since reopening anyways. So it doesn't really change, we're not really able to gather more than 200 people in the masjid at a time instead of being able to go up to 1500 people. However, what it does do for us is it's a step forward closer to another step of allowing us to gather as we used to. One thing that I was sharing with some community members today is the fact that we used to have in person

00:03:14--> 00:03:24

Friday night sessions, right where we would all come to the masjid and there would be, you know, good 500 or 600 people here in the masjid in the mosque at the Asana community center of Milton. And

00:03:26--> 00:03:33

it would be fun, and it would be filled with energy, excitement, you know, we'd have tea, we'd have snacks, we'd have you know,

00:03:34--> 00:04:12

treats for the children, candies, and cookies and chocolate and so on. We do quizzes, and we basically have fun, and we're looking forward to that very soon in sha Allah. But for now, we continue in doing things the way we are doing them. I know it's not the best I know it's not the greatest honestly, when you know it, it probably feels really strange for you. But just imagine how it feels. For me, I usually have 600 people sitting in front of me with all this chaos and everything. But that's the fun side of it. And right now I have just a bunch of numbers and I keep seeing myself on all I have multiple screens in front of me where I could see myself and every time

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

I move like this, I just see like all I have like 15 hands in front of me right now. So that's the interesting thing of the online world that we live in right now. Getting into our topic for today. Today in sha Allah Allah considering that Sunday will be the first day of the ledger, right? I figured that we would build upon our topic of the Jumana hook but today in the hook by the hook was usually very short. And we don't get time to elaborate a lot more

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

you know, on the topics that we're discussing in the hook but

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

of the Friday Sermon for those that are that are wondering what I'm referring to. So what we're going to do today, tonight here right now in sha Allah to Allah is just talk about the importance of the hedgerow and I want to take a second

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

back, I want to take a step back to hedge. hedge.

00:05:06--> 00:05:11

I was thinking earlier and usually, you know leading up to this time of the year,

00:05:12--> 00:05:51

I'm packing my bags, my wife is packing her bags. You know, we're booking flights nonstop from morning to evening, we're looking at different flight options. We're looking at timings, we are looking at, you know, logistics and names of people that are coming with us for hedging the group. You know, we are sending emails back and forth nonstop with regards to vaccinations with regards to visas with regards to transit time with regards to airlines with regards to, you know, family and where we're going to drop the children off and how they're going to spend the time when they're at their grandparents and so on and so forth. And so it's usually a very busy time of the year right

00:05:51--> 00:06:01

now, this this this week, basically, this weekend would be the weekend that we would most likely fly out to Macau for Hajj. But we're not doing that this year.

00:06:03--> 00:06:31

And so for many people that have the intention to go for Hajj, or many people who have gone for Hajj, or many people who go for Hajj regularly like myself, you know, having been blessed with the ability to go for Hajj, year after year Alhamdulillah with Allah so you know, it's a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala and and really do ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and pray and hope that we can go again for Hajj very soon, hopefully next year in Atlanta add.

00:06:34--> 00:07:19

But it really makes us think to ourselves, when people go for hedge, they usually are so excited that they are going for hedge and they've been chosen to go for hedge that all of their focus and attention is on that. And this happens to myself as well. When I go for Hajj, you know, I'm thinking to call us the events that are here that are staying behind that are looking after the community while we're gone, they will be focusing on now they will be focusing on you know, preparations that we'll be focusing on educating the community as to the importance of the ledger and what to do in these first 10 days, and so on and so forth. And we usually focus on, you know, reading the books

00:07:19--> 00:07:47

and you know, refreshing our memory with regards to the Gema with regards to most deadly foe with regards to Mina with regards to performing the Ramadan with regards to certain very fine details. Hajj has general you know, guidelines, and then there's very fine details that most people don't think of, until they get to Hajj. And while they're there in the days of hedge. They're like, Oh, this happened to me, what do I do? You know,

00:07:49--> 00:08:21

I stepped out of the boundaries, what am I supposed to do? Or I violated my home? What am I supposed to do? Or I'm unable to perform my own before going for hedge? What am I supposed to do? So these are all thoughts that run through the minds of the people as they get there and experience hedge but for people who are going as leaders, we need to be prepared to answer these questions. So a lot of the this time of the year is usually spent, you know, refreshing my memory and revising books and putting my my little you know,

00:08:22--> 00:08:36

I would say little toolkit right of books together, putting them in my bag and making sure that I go through certain topics and chapters every single day, and also preparing my lectures and preparing my notes for what I'm going to be teaching in hedge.

00:08:38--> 00:08:53

And in our in our minds, what we're thinking of is, I'm going for hedge so the reward is whoever performs the hedge, as we see in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right, whoever performs a complete hedge.

00:08:54--> 00:09:24

The reward for them is Lisa, who just you know that person has a reward of paradise. And they return to their family or they return to their country after they're done their hedge. k Yo, meanwhile, adatto they return as though it was the day that their mother gave birth to the meaning clean and pure from any sins in their account. All has been removed. You are fresh, you're new, you are starting once again, a new chapter in life, right?

00:09:25--> 00:09:28

And so we feel that the reward is great.

00:09:29--> 00:09:34

And we know that the reward is great. And so that's why we prepare for it.

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

But what about every single one of us who is unable to go for Hajj or not going for Hajj that year or has gone for Hajj already but not able to go this year or wants to go for Hajj but hasn't been chosen this year? Right or whatever year it is? What about them? Is there any reward and this is where Allah subhanho data gives us hope year after year.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Year after year,

00:10:02--> 00:10:05

that fasting a single day,

00:10:06--> 00:10:55

a single day, from the days of the ledger, fasting on the ninth of the ledger, which is the day of alpha. The reward for fasting on that day is expiation of sins that we've committed from the previous year. And the preceding year, the year to come. Look at the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Look at that abundant amount of mercy that comes from a lot zoa jet to those who are not going for hedge those who are sad already, right? We feel really sad when we are not chosen to go for a job, we are not given the opportunity, the ability to go for hedge that year, we feel extremely sad that Allah has not chosen me this year and not blessed me with the ability to go. And

00:10:55--> 00:10:56

so

00:10:57--> 00:11:02

I feel what you feel. And I know some of you are saying but you've gone for hedge so many times Yes.

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

But I'm not going this year.

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

Right. And I didn't go last year.

00:11:10--> 00:11:15

And despite having gone for the years before that. Allah subhana wa tada

00:11:16--> 00:11:28

teaches us through the hardships that we go through or the blessings that are taken away, that you had something you should always be thankful for what you have

00:11:29--> 00:11:52

and pray and hope for what you can have moving forward in the future. We can be invited to Hajj in the future. In fact, some of us can be invited to hedge this year. You never know what Allah Subhana Allah has in store like blessings and mercy from Allah subhana wa dyana. They come at random times when we least expect it. Well, maybe at that

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

level massage. We also come in Hey, Tula said Whoever has taqwa in Allah subhana wa sallam fears of punishment of Allah if we do something wrong so you're focusing on doing what's right. He had john level MK Raja he makes a way out for us.

00:12:12--> 00:12:21

In it, you know from from the hardships that we're going through in the challenges that we face in life. But he says, We are zuku Min, Haytham Allah

00:12:24--> 00:12:34

and Allah blesses us, provides for us provisions from places that we could not even imagine, we could not even comprehend.

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

So

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

it's never impossible.

00:12:41--> 00:12:45

It's never impossible. As much as we want to feel as though

00:12:47--> 00:12:50

Ah, this is what has been chosen for me.

00:12:51--> 00:13:13

Things can change just like that. Just like our health can diminishing drastically just like someone who's sick can immediately or or on, on, what's the word I'm looking for, can spontaneously be granted health right from Allah spanaway to add, anything can happen and change. And so my brothers and sisters keep in mind

00:13:14--> 00:13:38

that as sad as we are that we're not able to go for Hajj this year as much as we may have wanted to and we may have invested or even set some time and energy towards going for Hajj last year and we did not get the opportunity to go and then the intention to go this year and now not having the opportunity to go remember Allah subhanho wa Taala has mercy is not only upon those who go for Hajj.

00:13:40--> 00:13:41

So here we are,

00:13:42--> 00:14:04

at the beginning of the days of the ledger, which are going to be upon us from tomorrow evening, right starting tomorrow evening is the beginning of the ledger. So the blessings of these first 10 days are for the days the daytime of the ledger, okay these 10 days of the ledger,

00:14:05--> 00:14:31

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says mermin a urine in alignment of Sila houfy her a hug will eat Allah he mean her the hill a year. There are no days where good deeds and actions, right anomalous solid throw these days. Good deeds and actions are more beloved to Allah than these days of the ledger. flock. Allah Hello.

00:14:33--> 00:14:42

Okay, so if these are blessing days, and these are awesome days that we are about to embark upon, we are about to experience what am I going to do differently?

00:14:44--> 00:15:00

What am I going to spend my time doing? What am I going to stop doing as well? See, we usually as Muslims focus on the things we need to do. Well, what about the things we should stay away from doing? Maybe I should stop back by

00:15:00--> 00:15:20

My brothers and my sisters, maybe I should stop swearing and using bad language. I'm giving examples. I'm not saying that this is me, right? Maybe I should stop cheating and stealing from others. Maybe I should do my job honestly, when I go to work and not take advantage of others, maybe I should

00:15:22--> 00:15:24

stop consuming things that are hot.

00:15:27--> 00:15:30

Maybe I should stop telling lies.

00:15:31--> 00:15:37

Maybe I should stop dressing in a manner that is not appropriate for the believer.

00:15:38--> 00:15:40

Maybe I should

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

stop spending so much time on social media.

00:15:45--> 00:15:58

Maybe I should stop eating unhealthy foods, right for the sake of Allah. So that we can stop doing things that are not good for us.

00:15:59--> 00:16:24

And by default, we are doing things that are good for us. Right? So there's a balance in our life, of doing good deeds, and cutting out things that are not good for us as well. My brothers and sisters, these 10 days of the ledger, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would increase in a bad debt increase in worship.

00:16:25--> 00:17:08

What can we do throughout the day, I want you to give me ideas. Now, there's quite a few of you on here, right? I'm seeing in front of me approximately, I would say 50 to 60 people. Okay, so what exactly do you think give me ideas type in it, right? type in the comments section, you know in the chat in front of you type in what you think are good examples of good deeds that we as Muslims, not just you, anyone can do you might not be able to do these or you might already be doing them. Right give examples. Let's see, I want them to roll in and shout aloud to Alan I will say them out loud to everyone else. What do you think are examples of good deeds, good actions, types of worship types of

00:17:08--> 00:17:54

rebar, the types of sadhaka types of goodness that Muslims can do throughout these days of the hedger. Okay, the first thing that comes in is increase in night prayer very good on the law even though it's at night we can set a routine to try to increase in our night prayers. Okay, make dua Oh, very good. hamdulillah forgive those who have done wrong to you. Absolutely right. forgiving those who have wronged us more no acid. Okay. sadaqa nephele prayer like tahajjud pray more enough Asana Vicar, very good Vicar. How easy is it to do Vicar and we forget to do that, right? We forget to do it. Even right now we can say Subhana Allah because we're like, oh, I can't believe I haven't

00:17:54--> 00:18:32

been doing my card lately. Allahu Akbar or in Nelly la who are in that you know you're on your own or stuff that a lot of stuff that a lot of stuff a lot, right? So we could do that even right now. And it's so easy. Other things that are mentioned, keep typing them in, I want you to think more. There's a lot of things out there. There's hundreds of good deeds that we can do. And I want you to list them in sha Allah who to Allah giving sadaqa every morning increasing Vica sadaqa fasting make connection with the long lost family members Very good, very, very good, right reaching out to family members, more no effort, volunteering at homeless shelters, senior centers, etc. Absolutely

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

hon in a while you're

00:18:34--> 00:19:13

giving sadaqa asking forgiveness from everyone asking forgiveness from everyone right asking people to forgive you those that you may have wronged those that you may have wronged and don't even know of it. And I'm going to ask you all now, right we are in the last hour of Friday, if I've wronged you or done or said anything wrong, please forgive me for that. I may have said or done something intentionally or not. That may have usually it's not intentional, that has harmed you or made you feel something within you forgive me for that for usually I'm the one talking and you're the one listening So usually when the person who's doing all the talking is doing the talking then that's

00:19:13--> 00:19:42

the person that usually makes the mistakes right the most mistakes so forgive me for anything giving senem to everyone fasting throughout the 10 days very good, helping people feeding fasting Muslims good not only fasting but feeding the fasting Muslim. So a Muslim who's fasting giving them some food to eat to break their fast at the time of if at all, so that they are rewarded and you are rewarded with the reward of them fasting as well. I love UCLA. Absolutely amazing. Okay.

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

Doing is still far is still far and more is still far right. seeking forgiveness. We need to seek more forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Okay, and Sima says sent out and everyone's will say, yes, getting sent out as well as a good thing right? What about smiling

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

What about helping someone cross the street? What about seeing something that's garbage on the ground or something harmful, something that's on the street and we go and we pick it up or we move it out of the way. That's part of our belief, right? as Muslims, we believe that we have a responsibility to look after the place that we live in. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that the lowest level of Eman is email thought that I need Tarik to remove something that is harmful from the pathway of the people, right to simply move something out of the way. That's a good deed, that's a table very bad. That's a type of worship. And so my brothers and sisters, there's

00:20:41--> 00:21:23

lots of things that we can do lots of things that we can do, we can also be patient, when faced with some sort of trial or difficulty. Here's something to share some how Allah today, again, for the third time since April, I've had a nail or screw in the tire of my car. Three times in the last few months, three times, some of you might say, I've been driving my whole life, and I never got a nail in my tire. I've had three since April, Allahu Akbar. And what do i do i get home, took my phone off, put on some, you know, work clothes, get out there, plug it five minutes done. hamdulillah. Right. It's annoying, it's irritating. It's frustrating. It doesn't make you feel good. But at the

00:21:23--> 00:22:08

end of the day, if we think this is a blessing from Allah, right, this is a blessing from Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah that came to us, that may have slowed us down to prevent us from something else that we may have faced, had we been driving on the road. Allah knows, preaching Islam, right, sharing Islam with others, telling others about Islam is also a good deed that we can do. Right? Helping people visiting the sick, visiting people who are sick. Now we know it's COVID time people are worried about visiting people who are sick. But not everyone has some sort of illness that can be transmitted. Right? You may have a family member, a relative, a friend and neighbor, a colleague,

00:22:08--> 00:22:48

someone you know, who is undergoing some sort of treatment, someone who you can visit someone who you may be able to just make a phone call to, right, you may not have to actually go in and physically visit them. Because of COVID and protocols and stuff like that nowadays, we may be able to simply suffice with making a phone call. So these are all good deeds, that we can do and share with each other to benefit not only for our own personal selves, but everyone that's around us, right, people who are around us as we do these good deeds benefit from them as well. So my brothers and sisters, remember to keep up these good deeds now.

00:22:49--> 00:22:58

hamdulillah That was good. That was a nice long list of many, many blessings that we can seek throughout these 10 days.

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

One of the blessings is also to offer the sacrificial animal, right, to sacrifice an animal and it's not simply a sacrificial animal that is offered.

00:23:13--> 00:23:20

It is an animal that is sacrificed for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala in submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah.

00:23:22--> 00:24:06

But the meat is given to others to eat to benefit from, it's not wasted. And so it is a charity that we do, how expensive is it to go to the store and buy meat? Very expensive, right? It's very expensive. I know back in the day, over 10 years ago, was a lot more than that. 15 years ago, my dad used to have a halal meat store. And, you know, I used to work as a butcher. And I know how expensive it was I used to look at the meat and think to myself how to love like cutting someone sirloin steak, and putting it on the scale going machelle lots of articles, I would love to grow this and hamdulillah you know, I could simply take some meat from my dad whenever needed and

00:24:06--> 00:24:50

barbecue a little bit myself, instead of paying for this, it's expensive. But some of the blessings that we can earn throughout these days of the ledger that are coming up in front of us are to offer that sacrificial animal to not only sacrifice the animal for the sake of Allah like in some other faiths, they just put plates of food, right. I used to live in Malaysia and I've traveled the world and I've been to many places many many places where people offer plates, or bowls or bags filled with food, oranges and bananas and you know rice and and meat and vdna and plates that literally literally food from the restaurant is placed in front of idols and that food is going to waste

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

as Muslims we're not wasting the other here the core Bernie is going to those who are in need and that's from one of the best

00:25:00--> 00:25:50

One of the best things that we can do throughout the 10 days of the ledger, right, as in on the day of the 10th, and then the 11th and the 12th. The days are varied, we can offer that animal to the sacrificed a lot. That's amazing. It's absolutely amazing. Right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as even Omar the Allahu anhu. Allah says right I believe in Allah, the Allah and Allah. He says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lived in Medina for 10 years. And every year on their aid, he sacrificed that animal every year on he sacrificed an animal that's showing us an indicating that the animal to be sacrificed is a Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:25:50--> 00:26:42

the scholars say it's a pseudonym, aka one that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam always did on eat, right? He always would do. And he would have an animal sacrificed for his family, right for that household. And so you do not need to sacrifice one animal per person. If you live in a household, let's say it's husband and wife and five children, one small animal is sufficient or a share in a large animal is sufficient for your household. hamdulillah absolutely amazing. Right? And so Allah subhanho wa sallam makes it easy for us to attain forgiveness, easy for us to attain rewards from him. easy for us to seek higher levels in paradise. But we need to submit we need to

00:26:42--> 00:26:45

submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala Now

00:26:47--> 00:26:49

there are some questions that I've seen that come up

00:26:54--> 00:26:57

okay, I saw nails and I thought someone was asking about clipping nails but

00:27:02--> 00:27:17

sister Luke now was just mentioning last penny Tyler knows you're an expert in cars, and that you're able to remove it and fix it and plug it in five minutes and that's why he made you experience three nails in your tires in the last few months of hamdulillah.

00:27:19--> 00:27:24

It's not really something that I really want to take credit for but having been in

00:27:25--> 00:28:13

it is what it is. Alright, so my brothers and sisters, that's with regards to the first 10 days of the hedger you know, fasting as well, was encouraged by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam throughout these days, we can fast two extra days, and especially on the day of the ninth of the ledger, which is the day of alpha, imagine the her judge that are going and standing on alpha, the sacrifice that they're making the hours and hours of raising their hands and seeking forgiveness and making dua to Allah subhana wa Tada. And we sitting here in the comfort of our homes, can fast for that day and receive a year's forgiveness for the previous year and a year's forgiveness for the

00:28:13--> 00:28:22

coming year. Look at how Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses us, right. But remember, take examples from those who have gone for Hajj

00:28:23--> 00:28:28

for the hours that we stand and we make dua to Allah Subhana hauwa to add,

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

we should dedicate some time as well throughout these 10 days to make dua.

00:28:34--> 00:29:14

There are many people that are suffering, that are struggling, that are facing oppression and hardship and going through difficulty in various different countries around the globe. So many different countries, so many different regions, so many different places, even places in our own backyards as in right down the street. Sometimes there are people that are suffering that are suffering COVID-19 this pandemic has really made it difficult for everybody, everybody, right people who say no and hamdullah it's been a breeze. Yeah, but you're tired of certain things as well, aren't you? Right? Yes, tired of them. I'm very lucky and humbled in every one of us has faced some

00:29:14--> 00:29:57

sort of hardship, some sort of difficulty. So make do or how to Allah subhanho wa Taala because you never know. It may be your neighbor who lives right next to you. It may be your spouse who lays down in bed next to you. It may be your sibling, your brother or sister who shares the room with you. Right, who is going through some sort of hardship up here. There's a lot of pressure, right? A lot of pressure in our minds. People are going through difficulty thinking to themselves, when can I visit family once again? When can we enjoy the Friday nights in the masjid like we used to write? When can we come together and sit and enjoy a cup of tea outside of you know the prayer hall in the

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

gym. Right? When can we come and sit and down

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

office and he will make us a cup of coffee or tea. when when when hamdulillah Hamdulillah, we have the ability to make dua

00:30:12--> 00:30:17

to make dua, Allah to Allah subhana wa Taala. For when those days come.

00:30:18--> 00:30:59

When Allah opens those days, as in opens the ability for us to benefit from being together, and enjoying all the things that we enjoyed and going and sitting down and having a meal with family and friends inside of a restaurant, or wherever it is right? doing the things that we consider normal once upon a time. When those days come, if we seek Allah Subhana Allah to add his pleasure, maybe he will bless us with an even more joyful feeling of sitting down, and spending time with others, and doing Sadako you know, by feeding them and helping them and assisting them in whatever it is that they're going through.

00:31:00--> 00:31:41

And will feel so much more happiness than we used to. And we will feel so excited. And Allah Subhana Allah will make us appreciate it so much more. And Allah may bless us as well, the things that we don't even think of like, no, we're not going to back by it because we're taking we're not going to take this for granted. We're not going to speak bad about others, because we're not going to take this for granted a lot to get away from us for some time. We don't want him to take it away from us again. So let's not go back to making the same mistakes. Allahu Akbar. Wouldn't that be an amazing achievement from every single one of us? If we were to simply stop the things that are no good and

00:31:41--> 00:31:46

cut them out from our lives? Absolutely amazing. So my brothers and sisters,

00:31:47--> 00:32:02

make dua that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah allows us to enjoy the rest of our lives in the years to come upon amen and Islam and doing goodness in his obedience. I mean,

I want to see the whole prayer hall completely filled with people of course we are still observing the physical distancing measures that are in place. And so do this right now.
