Haman hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Where on earth he was talking to him woman whether or not that just forgive me
before I give out anything, just Just so you know, I always want to make sure and sometimes it happens where you know we give something out and notice these candies you know, I never do it but I just wanted to double check the ingredients on something before give it out to anyone 100 leather halide okay, don't worry about it. inshallah Tada, they're just regular candies but usually when you look at candies that have soft filling inside of them even holes or any gum like sometimes you get gum try and end etc. You know that have like a jelly inside of them, you should be reading the ingredients and shot a lot of time. So just to be on the safe side, I wanted to double check that
and hamdulillah we will today in sha Allah to Allah forgive me for my attire and so on. I'm going to be flying throughout the night. To the western part of Canada and shuttle I have a flight at 1055 which I will catch you shot a lot
you know, benefits of flying a lot, you know when you can go in and when you can't go in. So today's topic inshallah, if we can get our youth in here, that'd be great. You know, let's try and calm them down a little bit, get them inside, and we're gonna touch upon sent them.
And I briefly spoke about this last week, right? I mentioned how when I went to Medina, I noticed how the size of mustard and dubawi and was contemplating over how the mustard itself was the size of how the entire city was back then at that time. But there's another aspect that I touched upon. And that was sent them and I mentioned when this habit of the Aloha and whom you know, they would see a tree or something and they'd be walking and if they walked around it when they reach the other side of the tree just simply going around the tree, they would give sent them to each other, right, that was something that they would renew and refresh among them. And when you think of this and panelist,
sometimes we don't think of senem or seeing a set MRI, they come for those of you that are wondering, we don't really think of it as something that's really important. Why because for example,
I want you to give me set up so say send them to me.
Yeah, he and you. Yeah, yeah. You.
Uh, next to you? Yeah.
Hey, I quickly
does anyone say snap?
Right? Or do you ever hear that you walk into your house with Sonic? Sonic calm, right? It just rolls off our tongue and usually I know now much 11 sing a set mRNA comb, a set mRNA like everyone's studied Arabic for 20 years, right? They're all like a set Mr. alikhan. Right, bringing out that I mean and everything Subhana Allah know, most of us when we walk into our home or we go visit someone when we say sit down, we usually just say Sonico. But when we say set em, we have to truly understand what it is that we're doing. We are saying a seller who is a seller
who is a salon before we talk about the word center. Who is a Selim? Yeah, Allah subhanho wa Taala. Very good. Allah subhanho wa Taala is a Salaam. And this is why when we name a child, we don't just name the child a set out. Right? We don't just say a set up. We say this is odd, just
right. Like Abdullah
and Abdul produce an Abdullah. We don't name a child a law. We say Abdullah and Abdul Quddus, right, the servant of Allah, the servant of Allah produce the servant of man, the servant of a senem. And here we see some analog that when we say a send mRNA come many a time we just rushed through it. And this was something that the Missouri corn those that disbelieved and those that wished for the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, they would intentionally say send them the way that it naturally flows off the tongues of many Muslims. They would intentionally say things like
Aleykum write a summary.
What is that? That comes from the word? A
high, no, no high. What else? anyone here know? Yes, poison very good. They would wish for poison or death or hardship or illness to be upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we don't want that right. We don't want that for each other. When I give sent them to someone, I don't say send them because I want hardship upon them. So I say Sam alikhan No, we remove that from our hearts and that's another aspect of sin. The profits on a longer and a usnm. He comes to this a habit of the alumni
Home, and he says by the one in whose hand is my soul? Who is that?
Allah Subhanallah you want all the candies today? Right? You brought the candies and while all the candies back, you can answer all the questions we can get all the candies back, I did not know. So some ham Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, By the one in whose hand is my soul. Now he's referring to his soul being in the control of who, being in the control of a loss of Hannah Montana, he says, By the one in whose hand is my soul, taking an oath. It's like saying, well, law he right. He says, You will not truly believe sorry, you will not enter Paradise until you believe. Right? Only the believers will enter Paradise and we know this loss of Hannah Montana. He
is the one who chooses we don't say, Oh, this is this person is a believer, that person not a believer, they will go to Paradise, they will not go to Paradise. We don't even get into that. Even if a person lived their life entirely upon emotion, we still after their death, we make dua or accept them into paradise. Why do we do that? Why do we do that? Why is it that when a relative passes away, or someone we know passes away, we make do I accept them into paradise? Shouldn't we think automatically This person will enter paradise?
Very good. So the decision is with Allah subhana wa Tada. Right, the decision is not with us decision is with Allah subhana wa Tada. Even though we saw someone our entire life, and their entire life living as a Muslim, we don't know how they're gonna die. We don't know the condition of their hearts just about an hour ago. So Pamela, a friend of mine from Singapore, on the other side of the world, he sends me a voice message, right? And I listened to the message. And he's saying how you know, one of their grandparents is in the hospital. You know, his relatives, grandparent is in the hospital. And he's over 80 years old. And even though they're Muslim, he never lived the life of
Islam, and had hatred for Islam and a loss of Hannah Montana in his heart. Right. And so now he's been diagnosed with a type of cancer. He's over 80 years old, and he's telling people you know, how lost my time is done. I have cancer, I'm over 18 years old, like, what are the chances of me surviving, even if I didn't have cancer, everything's gonna survive much longer anyways. And so this brother, he messages me, and he asked me, he says, What? Yeah.
I don't know, I didn't do that. That's something something special coming from that table, you can go over there and ask that brother over there under the table, he'll tell you in chocolate, okay. And so this brother, he messages me. And he asks me, he says, you know, what should I tell this grandfather of ours? What What should I, what should I do when I go see him like he's in the hospital, he's probably going to die very soon, especially if they start treatment on him. Because it's, you know, one of the last stages of cancer or you know, the tumor, and he's like, he's probably not going to last very long.
So Subhanallah, I don't want to tell you what I told him in response. But the example there that we learn,
is, is exactly what we were talking about, that we don't know how a person is inside of them. We don't know if they're going to repent and turn back to a lawn their last moments, we might have seen them their entire life or for 20 or 30 years hating Allah subhanho wa Taala. Where he has a villa, we don't wish that anyone would hate the loss of candlelit Allah, right. But we might see that this is the type of behavior that they have. But in their last moments in their hospital bed, maybe they turn to a lawn repent, because they're thinking, and this is one of the things that I mentioned to him. Just plant a seed in his mind, so that he thinks while he's there, he's thinking of his life.
Are you content with everything you did? Are you content with, you know, is there anything that you wished that you would have done? And you're sitting there and you're laying in this hospital bed thinking to yourself, Yeah, wow, there's so many things I could have done, I should have done, I would have done, but now I have no time.
And so we see here, my brothers and sisters, the importance of setup. When we give senem to each other, it removes hatred within us. And you'll notice sometimes you come to the mustard. And there's people that you see all the time. But deep down inside, maybe because of something they said, Yeah, you just it doesn't sit well with you. Right? You bring maybe maybe now, maybe right now I'll use me as an example. Maybe right now we're sitting here. And some people maybe they brought their their families here, because the children know they get candy afterwards. Right. But their children like how we don't like that wood. Yeah, he's just boring. He else has the same things, right? Or maybe
the parents are like, yeah, you know, we wouldn't come to the masjid and attend this halaqa we'd rather go somewhere else, but our children like to come because it's fun. It's happy. You know, they get to play basketball afterwards. Afterwards, whatever the case is. And so maybe the parents themselves, they have something inside of them, remove it, remove it. So Pamela, and this is what I say I will tell you for myself first before I mentioned anything to anyone else, if there's anything inside of you, that bothers you.
From what I say, or what we teach, come and tell me, come and tell me, there's many brothers that do that. Many sisters do it as well. Sometimes they just, you know, send an email afterwards and say, You know this, you said this, it hurt our feelings. You know, we feel a lot of the time that we're not really being recognized Alhamdulillah so we point that out, we try to bring it out into our lectures, we try to make it a reality. And what what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says here, continuing the Hadith, he says, You will not enter Paradise unless you're a believer, right? Only the believers will enter Paradise. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says,
and you will not fully believe until you love one another.
You will not fully believe until you love one another.
Now, how do we love each other? This is where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam catches our attention. He says, Don't look over NSA. And should I should I direct you? Should I show you something? There. If you were to do it, it's going to bring love between you. It's going to bring love in your hearts. You know, some handler someone might feel something inside of them. Maybe two guys, two boys are playing basketball last week. Both of them got into a scrimmage. I don't know. I have no idea. I wasn't here. So is that really happened last week? Allahu Allah. All right. I have no idea. I was not here. I didn't watch you playing basketball. I have no idea. This is just an
example. So if anyone thinks I'm talking about them, I have no idea. No clue what happened last week during basketball. Okay. Just as an example, maybe two of you were playing basketball last week, right? amongst the 20 or 30 people that were playing ball. And as you're playing, you're going up to maybe take a layup someone hits you really hard.
And you get very upset you think to yourself, like brothers, you really wanted to stop the ball, block the ball, do something else. Why do you have to hurt me? Why did you physically have to hurt me? You know, and sometimes people they get really interesting when they're playing ball, they tripped each other, you know, they push each other, they nudge each other in areas where they know it's gonna hurt, like in the rib cage, and so on and so forth. Someone might feel inside of themselves, you know, I'm gonna come play basketball. But if that brother is there, I'm not gonna play. And they might even tell their parents you know, if I see something if I see Muhammad there,
if I see, you know, Abdullah there, I'm not gonna play. Why? Because you know, there's something between the two of them. And here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, shall I direct you or show you something that if you do it, it's going to bring love between you. And we were all listening, right? The Sahaba of the Allahu anhu. They're wondering, What is this thing? What is this thing if we do it, it's going to bring love between us. And if we do it, it's going to complete our email, it's going to complete our belief. And if we have that complete belief, then we will be people of Paradise as well.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, I've just sent anabaena so simple, so easy, so beautiful. Subhana Allah, spend, send, spread, send them to each other, give Salaam to the person next to you. You know, today I mentioned this in Jamal, today, sometimes you come into the mustard for Jamaat before the football starts. And you see people sitting in the rows, right? Because they came early because they finished work. You know, they have lunch early, they came sat early Alhamdulillah. And how many times do we go for Jamaat or how many times we come for the halaqa and we sit next to each other all the time. I don't even get sent them to each other.
Right? Like now we've been sitting and I'm pretty sure I felt it myself. You know, we're setting up over there are talking about the computer. And I had a feeling you know, Senate anyone hears a saying, you know, we're talking about the Dell computer and how I used one when I was doing my Masters people thinking you know what, we're sitting here waiting for you to start we're doing talking about computers. We came here for halakhah. We didn't come here to wait for you to talk about computers. Right? Just in my mind. I thought that what if someone is thinking that we should move on? This is why I was telling the brothers we should start even if the projector is not
working. Start with the announcement mentioned what you have to say. Why? Because it might stir something in the hearts of another person. But you notice a panela if we come imagine that's happening and someone comes to the table and says Santa Monica, how are you today? How's everyone you brothers? Okay, Everything good? How's the Dell computer? Right? I heard you guys talking about the Dell computers not working what's going on? Right? What's the deal? And somehow when we give sent them immediately breaks the ice instead of someone holding those feelings. Yes.
If you help someone you get a good deed very good at have the law in your shirt says What does it say? Uber is awesome. I came to the mustard with Uber today.
I didn't have a ride. I brought my suitcase. I came with Uber and Ola. And so we see some handler when we have ill feelings inside of us. Sometimes we feel
I don't know what to tell that brother. I don't know what to tell Esther just forget about it. And you might go home and talk to your spouse and talk to your children chalk and talk to your family and say, You know I saw this happen. His brother came in you know, he was praying next to me
Every time you know, I'm trying to focus on my spot on, you know, brotherhood shaffers reciting, or and so beautiful Subhana Allah and you listening to his recitation, and it's so beautiful, you know, really, really nice, interesting. You just want to listen to it, you want to pay attention, inshallah. And as you're paying attention, you're focusing on his recitations of Han Allah in the words of Allah Subhana Allah, the Quran being recited this brother, you know, he's digging his foot into your foot.
He's like stepping on your your toes, stepping on your pinky toe, and you thinking to yourself, like, you move your foot away. And this brother because you move your foot away, he moves his foot over again. And then you move your foot again and he gets upset. Now I'm going to teach this brother a lesson. I'm going to pin his foot to the ground, he can't move it and he just steps on your foot really hard, you know, some hamdullah then you get these feelings inside of you. Ah, what's wrong with this brother? you finish your salon. You know, you see it all the time you turn around. We see it as an Imam sometime you finish on it and you turn around and you see people are upset after salah
and you wonder to yourself What are they upset about? We just finished praying Salah we just finished praying to Allah subhana wa Tada. We left everything we said Allahu Akbar. We removed everything. Why is it that these people their faces look really upset and they're sitting there and they're like, you know, they're looking out the corner of their eye at the person next to them.
They're looking at them and you know, something happened? You know, something happened. Why not after that happens or anything sent him or her they can
kiss Hannah, how are you? How's everything you okay? He's strong Mashallah. What do you mean brother? We mean I'm strong. He said he too much.
Strong No, no, you're strong, Mashallah, you know, I was praying my Allah Subhana. Allah has focusing I was in my zone. And then I felt something heavy on my foot, like while he was coming down, right? He says, Oh, brother, I'm sorry. I didn't know I was distracting you insula. He says, you know, he tells you I had ether too, and you maybe exchange ahaadeeth with him back and forth. And in a nice way, in a nice way and a method shown to us by the prophets on Aloha and he was sending them. What began that conversation
center or LA Komara to LA he
began by giving center and you see some handleless center itself. It's not just something that brings peace because Allah Subhana Allah is the owner of peace. It brings peace to the heart into the mind as well. It removes it. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala is the owner of safety. He's the owner of that peace. So when you say sell them to someone, you give them sell them by saying I sell them or alikum not just sell them. Not like in the text message, right? When someone says capital A small o capital A is that it's like our right? Like, what are they saying to me our word language is this. I understand most people nowadays have free text messages.
And if you didn't know you can swipe you don't even need to lift your finger or use your thumbs swipe a solemn or add a column.
Or the least thing is say center. Just say center s a l A m or if you want to save pressing N A just put one eight right sa lm right? Let's see set up send that piece make that person feel there's some some goodness coming from you. It's not just like ah like I have no time for this. No, you have loads of time for it. Say a scenario where it come to the person where had a coma setup you have free text messages, or using WhatsApp was not charging you anything. So Pamela, right. We should be people that love the center, why?
Allah subhanho wa Taala as our youth tell us is a center.
Not only that, it removes hard feelings within us. Not only that, Subhana Allah, it brings us closer, and it makes us feel as though we're a family. We're a family of the people who are going to paradise together. And you know, we talked we heard about you know, a brother in a veal was mentioning some how to love talking about things and he made a mistake one or two times on the dates because he was thinking of the May election, you know, within the the party and you mentioned a few times he's referring to March, right? The end of March, march 28 in sha Allah hota hai that, you know, Subhana Allah is mentioning a few things. What we see there some how Allah, I was thinking,
he's asking us to come together as a family.
He's asking us to come together as a family, to be Muslims, to be united to stand together to try and change something that's bad to something that's good. And the loss of Hannah Hua to Allah in the Quran, he talks about honorable maroof on Nadia Anil Mancha. Right and I intentionally did this. When I mentioned it to the sisters. I'm a little bit better off, not because you need to be the only ones that do the good. But sometimes when we say I'm a little bit vulnerable for Nadia and Moncada and we end here the sister say Oh, you're saying we're Monica.
We're evil, we're bad, there's something wrong with us. Because sisters have handled that they are very soft, very, you know, gentle in their emotions have had a lot. And this is why we when we speak, we need to be wise. We need to understand and this is why I say I'm a little bit vulnerable for Allah loves Allah Why? You'll see I'll show it to you in sha Allah hotel had a loss of handle and I'm not saying the brothers are bad. No, don't get me wrong, right? It's just something that brings us happiness in sha Allah. Allah Subhana Allah Allah says Allah, Allah, Allah here and in Mancha to encourage good, encourage the spread of good, do something that's good, promote goodness,
and stop evil, stop things that are bad, stop things that are negative. Know when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentions this.
You'll notice that he mentions it in the same way that a loss of Hannah with Anna mentions it. an admirable maroof Wanda here and in Monaco to do good. And then to stop evils. An important aspect of our Deen is to encourage goodness. When you see someone do something wrong, and you give them Sallam to correct their mistake, first of all, think, have I made this mistake? Is there a problem with me? Is there something in me that I should be changing? Second step after thinking that, now that I'm going to correct this person's mistake, before I stopped their evil, let me encourage something good that they're doing. So we take an example.
We're in the masjid.
And there's a basketball court. Right? And you see youth playing basketball? Maybe Maybe one of them has shorts on. Right? He was playing before Splenda. And you know, he has shorts on and when he comes into play, he you know, saw that started. So he came into play. And you see when he's in sujood, his knees are exposed. Okay. And you see him and you go up to him after Sala
What are you doing?
Don't you know, this is how to get out. Right? Just we just tell them get out. Right? I'm just thinking how it was for me when I was a child.
So had a lot, we immediately tell them something bad. Get out? Don't you know you're not supposed to be you're outta is exposed, right? Your knees, your thigh is showing. And there's difference of opinion on this as well. But we all know that the majority will say that the knee is included in the IRA. And so Subhanallah what positivity? Can we get out of that? Let's rewind, take that same example. Okay. same example, youth, you're playing basketball. Hey, in the corner over there paying attention to their phone.
You're playing basketball. Okay.
And you see someone else playing with you. And they're wearing those shorts. And they come into presolar afterwards. Right after I was done, they're sitting down doing their job and is bothering you that their shorts are short. Like why are you wearing soccer shorts while playing basketball? Right?
What goodness Can you promote before stopping that evil? What goodness Can you promote before stopping the evil inside of you within you? or externally? Yes.
Okay, you say send em or any come very good. What else?
Okay, you might think you know what, there was a point in time in my life where I made the exact same mistake. Very good. Absolutely great. Yes.
Sorry. compliment him about what
you see. I like the color of your shorts. Or you might think something's like what are you talking about? Man? You want to buy them off of me or something? What?
Okay, you might say Yo, those are super cool shorts Nanos like Nike. Where'd you get those? You get them on sale or something? Like I want a pair of those right? You might say something like that, but what else? What else do you notice? Especially for the uncles, the adults? Yeah. Someone here wants to say something.
someone hears throwing things back and forth. When is that a question being thrown forward? Or
Yeah, what about the adults when the adults see something what would they say? Oh, hold on. It will take away sir.
Sorry. Compliment his game Yo, man, I saw you playing before Mashallah. You can almost dunk? Very good handler? Yes.
Exactly. Very good. That's that should be the first thing that we focus on. This is a youth who could who could be out on the streets, who could be smoking or drinking or doing drugs or clubbing or chilling with girls or whatever, you know, if he's a boy and so on and so forth. So many things that he could have been doing that were wrong. But Subhanallah he's in the masjid. And this is good because
We see all the youth here, we congratulate you. We congratulate you for being in the masjid on a Friday night when you maybe want to play video games, and you just want to chill and visit family and friends and so on and so forth. But you're here you're in the mustard and hamdulillah that's a great thing. Just a second inshallah.
So Subhana Allah, the first thing that we think especially as an adult, we think Alhamdulillah this youth, he's in the masjid.
And not only is he in the masjid, he's praying with us. He's praying with us and hamdulillah that's a great thing. Because how many youth are living in Oakville? Here? How many of us didn't pray with with us? Many. And so Subhanallah that's a great thing first, right? To identify that, and then you begin, you know, maybe getting to know this person becoming their friend, you know, breaking the ice, not by correcting the mistake, because Allah Subhana Allah mentions a little bit about
encouraging good first, and he mentioned that first because that's more important, and then a Nahanni Mancha, then stop the evils that you see. And so there's emphasis put on encouraging good in our Deen and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us to continue to spread senem and to spread goodness, and to open our hearts to one another. I mean, I mean, all right. And lastly, my brothers and sisters, I wanted to do one thing is more practical thing and shut a lot of data before I leave, right? And I'm gonna have to excuse myself today no questions, please. I literally will stop put the mic down close that you brothers will put everything away, I'm going to grab my jacket
and go out into the car and shot a lot of time, okay, because I need to catch this flight. But what I am going to do first is a practical thing. For all the youth in particular, every single one of us is going to say Assalamu alaikum.
But before we do that, we're going to learn the physical setup. And then when we give Salim and we say said mRNA comm we'll get a candy inshallah Tada. Okay. But first, the thick of setup. Very easy. When someone says a salon where they come to you, what do you say back to them?
Why they comas set up. But the profits of the longer it was send them says to return that sent them return their greeting with something that's equal to it or better. So if I say I said Mr. alikum, what do you say back to me?
equal equal? What do you say back to me? I said Mr. alikhan.
Wrong. You say why and a comma, Sam. Okay. equal. When I say a Salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah wa he, what do you say? equal?
y la como Salam warahmatullahi. Okay. When I say a sin, Mr. Na Kumara to Why are you about a cattle and you respond with something equal to it? What do you say?
Good. La como Santa Marina De La Habra. Catan. But now, if someone just says I said, Mr. alikhan.
You can respond with something better than that. You don't have to just equal it. Right? You don't have to match it. You can do something better. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam teaches us. You could say what and ecomo salaam wa rahmatullah. Or you could say we're in a coma setup, what I meant to warn you about our cattle even more. And here we see some kind of line and duration that when you say y equals center, or you say son, Mr. alikhan you get 10 rewards 10 minutes. You say said I'm learning from what I've heard a lot. You get 20 you say said Mr. Robot, our cattle, you get 30 and when you respond that way, you get more as well. And so some panel that's important for us to say
set up so a set mRNA calm warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
very good Alhamdulillah See, I told you we were all going to say send them and you all get a candy inshallah Hosanna I'll leave it with one of the brothers is going to make sure that the youth get it first. And then the adults can get it afterwards in sha Allah And please, whoever is giving these candies out one who's who's going to take responsibility to give out these candies. You want to do it in sha Allah to help so you do it but prioritize the sisters first. Okay, so give to the to the sisters, maybe one of the sisters can come and get a handful and distribute it to the other sisters and chama one of the smaller girls and then you can give it out all the boys you just line up in a
row. Okay, you just line up I know a lot of you want to do the Cahoots, but I didn't plan on doing a Kahoot today and a lot of time you need to put your phone away and watching basketball and my Allah Subhana Allah right so one to each person and they need to make a straight line and prioritize the girls first inshallah. So give her give her a handful to give to the other sisters or
That's a big handful Mashallah there you go
