Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam or nnb Hill Karim? Allah Allah He was off be here. Marine rubbish rattly Assad anyway acidity Emily wagnon orchidectomy lissoni of Cabo Cody.
My brothers and sisters in Islam a sent mRNA Kumara Allahu Akbar cattle
How's everyone doing?
Are you in a rush to get to read
this question, when is a Tuesday?
Are you doing FTK
And as far as I know, from what research my wife did, for me, is the moon will
pretty much not be able to be seen anywhere for it to be on Tuesday, which means that those that go by moon sighting as well as simple calculations,
etc. It will most likely be on Wednesday. Yeah, Allah knows best right luck and make the moon come whenever he wants. So
for Tuesday, in Europe,
really? So Dr. nadwi was talking about this, what did he say about us?
Keep it to Wednesday.
Yeah, that's the thing. So I mean, it's their it's their loss. We know based on calculations, it's there. But you need to see it right, you need to be able to see it. So
the calculations that we use here are calculations based on whether it's going to be able to be seen or not, whether it's there or not. See, there's a difference between calculating. And then saying, oh, but the moon is there, yes. But we calculate based on whether the moon can be seen as well. Right, because we know our weather had a lot, especially the UK as well, the weather, you can almost never see the sky period, except maybe two or three years. And two or three weeks a year and you might be able to see it as best today woke up to Panama and my sinuses are all blocked up. And I actually I woke up. I went to sleep after fudger and I woke up thinking I was like swimming.
Like I thought it was swimming. It was really strange as though I was having a dream that I was swimming and I woke up and I thought I was swimming because my nose was running so much panela
metal handler I slept it off and feel feel better.
Today in Sharla to Hannah, I wanted to focus on
time but in a different aspect. Yesterday we spoke about time and so on, we're not going to go over that again. But time using our time to benefit and maximize from the things that we don't usually get to do throughout the year.
And how you're given the opportunity to perform your T calf or for those that are not performing RT cast that are here. You know simply coming early to the masjid and spending some time here it gives you the ability to
perfect some of the sunnen some of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we do. So none is plural of Sunnah. Okay, in case anyone's wondering. So the prophets that along are AlLahi wa sallam for example, like you finished praying sauna, right? Let's say you finished praying.
And you notice how when we finished praying our Salah, what do we what do we typically do after we finished praying?
Is it good? Okay, what else?
is still far? Okay, what else do I have? What else?
I have through kursi right? We're say ayatul kursi. Okay, there's a few things that we can do.
Yeah, go ahead more how are we there? 10. Very good, until there's a cap that we do after Salah right Vicar remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But while you're here for your tea Caf, you're given the ability to look after certain things that were done by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that are not normally looked after by others, or decaf itself. It's the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Not everyone in society is doing that.
Oh, is he supposed to open the curtain?
is his son in there?
Maybe he's sleeping
Nobody's not there
and we also yeah Mashallah.
The camera is recording and people can't see who's looking at this curtain.
Maybe he's just using the bathroom or something.
So, Allah subhanho wa Taala chose you as we mentioned the other day to perform a Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to perform and take off that is something that you are upholding that the rest of society is not doing. Right? You're upholding something you're doing something that the rest of society is not doing. They're not looking after you have been chosen to do that. While you're here though, try to do some of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you yourself and many others in society overlook as well. And when I say overlook and I don't mean they don't do but they don't perfect and so you have the ability the opportunity now even though the time
isn't right, not so great, let's handle that you still have the time to perfect those sunnen because you're not in a rush to leave so for example after Sala when we do our workout we say I still fit a lot first of all right still fit a lot I still fit a lot I still fit a lot
what are we saying the stuff that a lot for Is it because someone's kid was running around and we're saying stuff it'll offer them like stuff that allow your child is like this. I stopped for a while your child was like that and stuff. But, you know, we're saying I still feel loved because we're asking a lot for forgiveness. We just finished praying we submitted we came close to a lot. Now we're asking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for forgiveness, extra forgiveness, because we did that in sauna we're asking extra forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But when we do that, we need to make sure that we are asking for forgiveness with sincerity, like what am I asking forgiveness for?
Why am I asking for this forgiveness. And similarly, we when we go into the test, we have to speak to my right which typically known as that the test be that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged Fatima out of the love and her to do it is better for her than if she was to simply get a maid that's going to help her a lot somewhat and it will help you he'll make things easy for you. And so you recite or you say Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, Al hamdu Lillah Allahu Akbar, right 33 times then 33 times 111 and 33 times Allahu Akbar or 34 times Allahu Akbar. And in other narration, 33 times a lot like that. And then Subhana Allah will handle our Latina and a lot of a lot of
ala Bella. Alright, so the TSP we know very well
for Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar
shall no this is this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him about the Allah and how to do and we see that you know, a lot is an I don't want to I don't want to get to that now I want to start with Subhana Allah First we'll get to that inshallah. Okay, so so Pamela, why do we say some kind of a what what does it mean when we say so Pamela, what does it mean?
Right? What does it mean when we say Subhana? Allah? This is tricky. Some people have a hard time explaining this.
Praise, overpraising alone when we say Al Hamdulillah we praise Allah. Okay, what type of praises Subhana Allah Yes.
praising his creations, interesting, you're on a philosophical path. Very good, Mashallah. We're gonna get to that and Sharla What about Subhana? Allah, what does it mean?
Okay, okay. Identifying the beauty of the glory of Allah subhana wa, Tada. The status of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, right, praising him in a way that glorifies his magnificence, his magnitude his his greatness, right? Not Allahu Akbar. We know what Allahu Akbar is, but Subhana Allah. Now what is said
right, see Baha, what is that?
Hey, will this be
okay, so test B, we know what test B has. We're doing test B, but what the word test B What does it come from
1010 z. Tenzin, Eva,
Tansy, bilum. Bill,
Bill, how are lamb bill? Tansy good. So glorification of Allah subhanho wa Taala also
the really that's the only way I can explain it Arabic is sometimes we understand it more than we can explain it.
Yeah, the the the glorification of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Let's leave it at that inshallah. But the word Seba, what is that? What does
To me, swimming good. Allah subhanho wa Taala says said the Halle la humor is somehow it wonderful.
Does that mean that everything is swimming?
No, that means everything is glorifying Allah subhanho wa Taala but how do they glorify a loss of Hanoi Tana by continuously doing what they've been created to do? So let's take the example of sub bahat lillahi. Murthy Santa's What am I fill out? What is in the sky, the sun, the moon, the clouds for example the stars, we know that the earth is revolving we know that the sun is moving we know that the moon is moving, we know that the clouds when we look at the clouds, they're moving as well. Right? The clouds are moving and their flow and their movement is being obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala by can.
or cologne V for locking? Yes. And another example that everything in its own path its own course of how Allah Subhana Allah created it is glorifying Allah subhanho wa Taala so even the thing that doesn't move, so you might say well, not everything is moving. What about a tree? A tree is planted in the ground, it has roots it's going into the ground. Is it glorifying Allah subhana wa Tada. Yes, how, by doing what it was created to do, and commanded to do it absorbs the water from the ground and carries it through its trunk it you know, producers in the summer the buds and then the leaves. And then maybe you might see flowers on different trees come out fruits on different trees grow. The
other day we went strawberry picking we saw some apples, the apples are starting to grow on the trees, right and then in the in the in the autumn, the leaves change color and then they fall off of the trees every single default not on its own only with the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala does every single leaf fall to the ground. And so Subhana Allah, it's important for us to understand, when we're doing our tests, that we are glorifying the loss of hanaway to Allah and not saying sub sub sub focus was for sauce. We're saying Subhana Allah, for what? For what? For everything that is that exists. For me being able to be here to pray my soul not to finish my Salah, and to then sit
and recognize the loss of Hanoi to Allah Subhana Allah. I've been chosen to do that. So Panama I've been chosen for errotica so Panama I've been chosen that I can I can recite the Quran Subhana Allah so many things. I'm capable of fasting so Panama I don't have a headache or a migraine today. So Panama. I do have a migraine today have been chosen out of everyone to have maybe a migraine or today like me, the sinus, you know, pain that I'm feeling and the headaches of Pamela It's amazing. It's from Allah subhanho wa Taala it hurts no doubt. It's difficult, no doubt. But remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us that every single one of the struggles or the pains
and the hardships that we go through is what?
What is it? Mo Farah, forgiveness, forgiveness. Even the prick of a thorn. You feel the pain. It's forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so when we do our test beer, we begin thinking what am I doing now? instead of rushing through it, you have the time the opportunity to perfect that sun, the time to perfect it in your life. So that carrying it forward after Ramadan, you will not be someone that goes back to your regular you know routine. And just come quickly pray your Salah and then leave, you know and maybe do your tests be on your way out or even if you do that you will be someone that pays attention to your test VA because you focused on it during Ramadan. You felt the
importance of it. Then you move to 100 in LA
where Elijah and OB him with a Corona
All right, very good.
Yes, yeah, no doubt. And that's that's what we're highlighting is that when we are doing our test B when we are doing any type of Vicar, any type of very bad that Allah subhanho wa Taala has Allah mentions in the Quran as our brother is highlighting for us he says a lady named kurunegala, the young man standing Odin, were alleged to be him either standing or sitting or laying down on your side and as you begin to foot Karuna, and you think you ponder over the creation of Allah Karuna, if you help this somehow it will act upon the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. With regards to the sky, the heavens and the earth on a banner, then it's a dual hot transitions burner. Mahalo Okta
heard about Lila so behind NACA Sakina dub and now we ask Allah subhana wa tada subhanak
We praise Him we glorify Him, save us in that door while we say save us.
Grant us freedom from janam from the hellfire. And so then we move on to Alhamdulillah. When we say Alhamdulillah What does it mean?
Thanks. Good. You skipped to the second part. Before we get to Thanks. Thanks is sugar. Before sugar, what is what is Alhamdulillah? When we say Alhamdulillah praise, All praise is due to Allah. All Praise center which is praise, All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we praise Allah, we say Alhamdulillah but an element of hemd is sugar. We're thankful to Allah subhanho wa to Hana. So we're praising him and thankful for the things he gave us. Now when we say Alhamdulillah in our test, we what are we saying? Alhamdulillah for?
Who a lot is, okay, who he is, first of all, so we're, we're praising him and we're thanking him for who he is and what he's given us. What he's done for us how he's created us how he's created the earth, how he's created, the hot in the skies, how he's created our food. Imagine you're sitting there you're saying Alhamdulillah This is after Muslim? Right? We finished the thought we came in we prayed Alhamdulillah I got to eat hamdulillah I need that Tylenol, right Alhamdulillah I got to drink that water. Alhamdulillah you got to you know, quench that thirst Alhamdulillah you ate a date with which naturally brought energy into you immediately energy came into use of Allah. Right? I
remember one of the things that our teachers in Medina would tell us to do when we had a headache and we were in class saying you have a headache. They wouldn't say go take a Benadryl panadol or a Tylenol. They would say eat dates,
dates, y dates immediately gives you the energy you need. Maria Maria has sent him she's delivering this child Lisa and his son Emma last minute Allah gives her dates Alhamdulillah we have the dates we have the food and hamdulillah for time Alhamdulillah imagine Allah subhanho wa Taala prescribed for us. 30 consecutive days of no food, no water. Whoo Alhamdulillah we get to eat in the nighttime, right? And hamdulillah praise Allah. So be thankful to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for everything and hamdulillah I can see Alhamdulillah I can see colors Alhamdulillah I can hear the other end, it's being called beautiful. And then when we're breaking our fast Alhamdulillah there's people with
us, I'm not all alone, in the middle of nowhere, and no one knows who I am. So there's so many things that we need to be thankful for. Yes.
So we just mentioned that right? You're glorifying the loss of Hannah Woods out of his magnitude. And then you're praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, it's they're very similar, but you're praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and the hand has an element of sugar in it. Okay has the element of sugar. So for example, you're really thirsty, you hear the other end, and you just
got down the whole bottle, even though the sun does. 123 is like no, today, it's just down at one time, right? What do you do after
hamdulillah? Why? Why are you thankful for that? As in, you're showing sugar to Allah Subhana Allah to add, but you're saying Alhamdulillah Why? Because he granted you something that you're thankful for. And you feel it in you as well. And so there's an element of shortcodes there as well. Where as you're outside, and you see a beautiful, beautiful sunrise. After you spent the 29th night tonight after you spent the 29th night in the mustard. And you gave it all you got. Yeah, right. Did you give it to the room? Is he awake?
Was it just to you just brought to Okay good. So the brother has
a migraine so remember him in your door and shala but also if any of you need anything during anti Catholic these brothers Mashallah I called them and I said you know what, can you bring some earplugs? There's a brother who just wants to rest a little bit he has a migraine and it's it's tough to rest so if you need anything let us know. Let us know that's what we're here for. I keep telling you sir. Oh, did you need anything? I look after him because I consider him like my little brother Mashallah even though he's in university now right? universe called I have class but didn't you finished high school right?
Yeah, philosophy. Remember last year you finished it. So he's a university student. Don't the little Higgs class. Higgs is better than University. Right? So Subhanallah If you need anything, let us know. That's what we're here for. Don't feel as though you know you're stuck. Like I saw you rubbing your neck if you need muscle cream or you know anything. Yeah. Let us know. Some handler will get it for you.
That's what we're here for. We feel honored to serve those that are performing etica we feel honored. And you never asked me for anything. That's why I'm coming and just doing the lectures, because at least I can give you something that I have that I received that I can give back to you. So any of us that is coming and going ask us don't ever feel shy. Really, it's an honor for us to do something for those that are performing air decaf. When we were in Medina students, we used to look for random people who we didn't even know who came from maybe other countries that were there for Ramadan, for Amara, and they were doing RT Cath and we would ask them while we're there, you know,
breaking our fastest time, you do need anything and they would say, you know, so analyze a little bit difficult and, you know, I brought one pillow, I only have one blanket, sometimes we'd put our money together and go buy people blankets and give it to them, because they feel cold because the air conditioning inside most of the novel is really good, Mashallah. And so, you know, buy them a blanket, bring them a pillow or something, and we feel honored to do that. So let us know anything that you need to Panama, we share in the reward that you get as well.
Good. So we mentioned this yesterday that you can perform empty cars, even those that come into the mustard now, you can make intention for performing at Caf while you're here until the time that you leave. So the time that you're here is a time that you are in arctica right. This is anytime you enter the mustard you can you make this intention. This there's actually there's an actual drop of erotica, right when you come in to say this it's you're making the intention or if the cosplay you don't necessarily need to say it you can simply have the intention of coming for at least for the time that I'm here and then you leave. But those that that are performing at decaf in the last 10
days of Ramadan. This was done by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and after his is returned to Allah subhanho wa Taala his wives would continue and the other Sahaba of the Aloha and
so it was talking about Alhamdulillah right and we mentioned that praising Allah and having sugar and thanks. Yes, the sunrise so you go out on the 29th morning, for example, or you just you know, look out the the garage door because I think it comes up on this side, right? Because the sun is setting there so it must rise over there. And so you see the sky is beautiful and say Subhana Allah did that quench your thirst? Did you drink something? Are you showing sugar? No, you're thankful yes for the sun but you're glorifying a lion his magnitude Subhan Allah look at the sun Subhana Allah Look at the colors of Han Allah. There is no raise of hand Allah maybe last night was was was Laila
to cuddle. And everyone came on the 27th and we got it because we were here on the 29th right. Or you don't necessarily need to be in the mustard to get Laila terracotta Don't be fooled, right? You just need to be doing something do something to try and benefit from Laila to recover. And so that's a hand and
Subhana Allah, then we move on to Allahu Akbar. What does that mean?
The greatness of Allah subhana wa Tada. But what does it mean? Allahu Akbar? What does it mean?
Okay, a lot comes first. What else?
Allah is great, good. Allah is greatest and Allah is.
Great term. Greater. Okay, so, difference of translation. Allah is great, but a lot of great is still deficient of something. A lot is the greatest and a lot is greater than the greatest. Right? So someone might say I'm the greatest. Didn't Muhammad Ali say that? Right? No, someone's greater than that. Who Allah is greater than the ones who claimed they're the greatest. Right? And so we when we say Allahu Akbar, are we actually thinking and feeling Allahu Akbar?
Right, that's what we need to know, when we're doing our tests v. Are we actually thinking and feeling Allahu Akbar, Allah is definitely greater. And Subhana Allah, you know, there's so many things that we need to think of when we do our test beer. You're praising Allah subhanho wa Taala, for who he is, and what he's given you and everything around us. And even when we see it, when we see the sun, for example, rising, say Subhana Allah, and then immediately you remind yourself, Allahu Allah is greater than this. He's much greater than this. He is the one who created it. And you think of the example of Ibrahim Allah His setup, when he saw the stars in the sky, right? And he
said, Oh, this must be my Lord. And then he saw the sun and or saw the moon, and then he saw the sun. Right? And he says, How that'll be how the Aqaba? No. Then he says, No, there's no way that this can be my Lord. Why? Because it disappeared. And my lord doesn't disappear.
And even though we don't see a lot, that doesn't mean that a lot doesn't exist, that he disappears on the other side of the world, and he's unaware of what's happening here because the moon is here now, no, the sun goes away and the moon comes, that doesn't mean that Allah subhanaw taala disappeared. Allah knows everything that is happening that we see and that we don't see that we reveal and that we conceal. And so we say Allahu Akbar, right? Even when you have, for example, that pain that you feel inside of you pain, a lot about why he created that pain, and he can make that pain intensify. He could turn it up, he could turn up the pain, but Alhamdulillah I only have this
pain that and I don't have a pain that's even worse. And Subhana Allah, he has the ability to bring something even greater.
And so when we do our test, it's important that we slow it down and we think of what we're doing, and you have the time to do that. Now let's look at is accuracy, for example, is of course,
we all know that we recite item quotacy after Salah is the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but why do we recite it? There's actually 10 perfect sentences in ayatul kursi. But how many is is it? One, it's Aya? alkoxy it is one verse of the Quran. But there's 10 perfect sentences inside the suit inside the ayah. Which is why when you resign, you say Allah, Allah ina Illa one Hi, you can you
that in itself is a perfect phrase, love photo center to wanna know, again. So we see that there's things that we should be learning in ayatul kursi as well. Sadly, we don't pay attention to its meaning. We don't give importance to the meaning of ayatul kursi. We memorized it. And for decades, we've been reciting it after Salah since we were children, and we don't even know what it means. And then we tell our children as well recite it, memorize it and recite it after Salah. And do we teach our children what it means no. And when they asked us what it means what do we say? Don't ask, just do it. Right, Nike
Just do it. No. Our children today they ask questions. What something that many of us were not allowed to do as children. Right? I remember my dad would tell me my father some buckets done. He would tell me when they were in school. He used to tell us this when we were children. And I think he might be watching. I gotta be careful what I say.
He has to tell us when they were in school, you would never ever dare to ask your teacher. Why? If your teacher tells you to do something, don't ask why. Don't question don't? Don't don't, you know, question the teacher?
Why? What's the purpose? You know, they tell you to do something. I don't want to do that. You wouldn't dare to speak back to your teacher. Is that right? Is that how did that happen? For some of us? Yeah, of course. And if you did, what happened?
You get hit not with the hand with a leather strap or with a Dundas stick or something. Right? You see, they know that like, Yeah, not anymore. Not anymore. How we're used to nowadays and especially because of where we live. The laws don't permit us to do that. Not only that, our Deen doesn't encourage us to do that. Our religion doesn't encourage that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's never reported that he hit a child or you know, physically disciplined the child in that way. made him do motiva you know what guys? Mashallah. All right? Those that are watching, they might not know
hamdulillah I never had to do it. But when I was memorizing Quran in madrasa here in Canada, it was done. Students would do it you and those who here does not know what that is? You don't know what it is for sure. The kids see the kids don't know you don't know what it is. You don't know what it is. Man if you didn't memorize your your subak your lesson what the teacher told you to memorize for the day? I'll show you I can't do it properly.
Let's do it for the people here so they can see this is what students had to do. So you're standing hopefully I don't fall you standing the teacher tells you after getting annoyed with you because you're not
you know you you're still not reciting your your Koran properly. So instead of sitting there telling you to stand instead of standing.
Oh, don't worry, we can lift this pencil.
So they tell you
so what do they do? They tell you what about Goomba Can you still do it?
So you go like this. You put your hands under your legs and you and you hold your ears. You have to hold your ears.
I never did it. And you're and you're expected to while you're doing this, to have your quote in front of you, and you're reading you're still reading as you can.
So Hannah law, punishment, punishment. But what do we what do we see comes from that
on your back? Yes. Yeah. And even worse if you're really terrible student like I remember those one student two brothers Mashallah I remember their names and their last name, they would get punished every day. They would have that with weight on their back and being beaten. From the behind, in Melilla, here in LA Roger. Is that a good thing? No, it's not. It makes students hate the Quran.
Exactly. Yeah. It makes students hate the Quran. They think, wow. If this is such a glorious book, such an amazing book, this is the words of Allah. Allah wants me to be beaten while I learn it. Wow, this must be really amazing for me. And they leave Islam. Some of them. They leave this No, they don't they feel like this is this is not this is not right. And so Subhanallah nowadays, what are our youth doing? We're telling them read ayatul kursi. memorize it. You know, go to the masjid do your Sabbath, do yourself do your lesson every single day do your lesson. They don't even know what they're reading.
They don't know what they're reading. And so it's important for us to teach them with the reading. Similarly, we ourselves for decades, maybe never even took a moment to try and understand what does ayatul kursi mean? And we recite it after
every scholar we recite it before we go to sleep, etc. And so we need to take that time you're performing guarantee cuff, open the English translation open the audio translation, whatever, just look at what it means. Just read it what it what does it mean, right? understand it. What am I saying? Why am I saying this? Allahu La Ilaha Illa who ally you'll call youm learn who the who CNET on one unknown lahoma this summer Watashi wa marfil, Mandela de la junta who in the evening, read it understand it, I'm not going to explain it to you because if I do that, you'll forget it. Right? You need to go in search it and learn it and understand it and you will remember it you will remember it
you will see the words in front of you it will inshallah you know burn a CD in your brain for you. Right, you will remember it. And so it's important for us to understand what we're doing. And our children nowadays, we need to remember we can't use those, you know, traditional tactics and trying to get them to memorize things and force them and beat them and hit them no children nowadays. If they are not happy with with you know what you tell them to do? What do they say? They say Why? Why Why do I have to read item cozy after sada? What are you going to do? can beat them, they'll pick up the phone and call the cops? Hey, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us peace in our homes. I mean,
and so learning of the Quran and learning the lessons in the Quran are important for us, especially the things that we recite all the time. The more Are we the tan Sora to floss, the last three quarters or the last three quarters, because I know people know them as the right, the last three quarters, the last three quarters of the quarter and we recite them all the time. Do we know what they mean? Do we do we take a moment to learn what they meant from Hannah law. And that's those are actually sold as of the court and they protect us from evil. They protect us from harm. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, allowed us to learn the simplest things of the Quran that actually
benefit us the most. I have to could see it's short sort of two classes really short. The last, you know, two sodas. cola was a bit of Bill Fela cola was a bit of meanness really short they protect us Surah Al Fatiha really short, it's a protection it's shifa as well, it's a means of of seeking relief in aid or you know cure from any illness or disease or sickness. And so these things alone made really easy for us easy to learn and easy to understand. The problem is we need to we need to be the ones that actively go and try to understand it.
And so here we see that those that are performing arctica
going back to my initial statement, you have the opportunity to perfect certain things in your deen you have the opportunity to perfect your test be your Vicar your remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala you have the opportunity to do is still far and learn to do is still farm in a way that it's actually you know, you you're feeling like I'm asking a lot for forgiveness. When I say a stable federal law, it's not just I saw something wrong and stuff that a lot no
It's a stone federal law for what I did a small set of law for what I thought I still fit a law for what I'm thinking of doing. I still fit a law for you know what I want to say whatever it is anything I still feel lost don't have a lot for the things that I did today throughout the day, so many things that I subconsciously was not aware of. And I did them and I'm asking a lot for forgiveness. So you have the opportunity now to do that. Perfect the other son than the other son in your life, the other son in your life. So for example, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shows us I do look on my eyelash again, should I show you something? Should I tell you something that if
you were to do it, it would bring love between you? What did he tell us to do?
Spread sent him, spread, send them say I sent them or Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. You get 10 rewards if you say send Mr. alikum. You get 20 if you say Santa Monica more amatola you get 30. If you say send Mr. La cumbre De La Hoya wa barakato. Right. You get rewarded by simply saying it but what are you saying? Last night when I was leaving the mustard in Milton.
I was just going to my trunk. I don't know what it was doing is putting something back in my trunk of the car, just leaving and the family was in the car. And the sister came out of the mustard, the door of the mustard and she walks by Santa Monica where it comes out. I thought to myself, I always teach about this I always teach about singing Salaam to the to a Muslim when you walk by them. And I've mentioned it here in our Friday night halaqa as well. The importance of giving Salaam to someone else to a Muslim. Sadly though, as Muslim brothers and sisters we feel that we are not to speak to the opposite gender at all that we can't even give send them to one another why our Muslim
sisters are being punched and kicked and pushed down. They're being hurt on the streets here in Canada, inside grocery stores in you know, public places handler they're being hurt. They're having their their day jobs pulled off of them. They are losing confidence in themselves in their level of Eman in their practice of the dean. Many Sisters now are you know, they even voice the voice that they've removed their hijab. They feel more comfortable not wearing their hijab, because now they're no longer targeted as a Muslim.
But what if we as men, as Muslims in general, if we regularly when we're walking down the streets, we say a set Mr. aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Or you're in public, you know, you might feel shy yourself. So just say, send me a send, I'm really simple. It takes three seconds, not even a cent mRNA not even two seconds, right to say that. But what are you saying? It's not simply conveying Selim.
As in the words, who is a synonym,
a law. And when we say a selam, Aleykum, you're actually making a dua, you're telling a law, put your peace, you're the owner of peace, you're the owner of security of protection, shower, that protection down upon this other person, this other person that I meet,
you're asking ALLAH, put your your protection, your blessings, your safety, your security upon this person, you own it, you're the owner of safety and security, place it upon this person. And then you say, said Mr. Li, wha to LA he, and have mercy upon that person, well, but our casual and give them Baraka as well.
And so when the Muslim sister walks down the street, and every five minutes or every 10 minutes she's being given selam Do you think she's going to lose confidence in herself? No, she's going to gain confidence. She will feel that there's other Muslims around me as well. There are other people that if I'm being attacked, or I'm being hit, or someone is punching me, or someone's yelling at me and someone's swearing at me, at least I know that for every five minutes when I'm walking on the streets, I passed by another Muslim who's giving me selam I know that if something is going to happen to me, there should be there must be an Allah will bring someone a Muslim that will be there
for my safety and protection. And that's not only for the Muslim sister, that's for everyone in general, as a Muslim when someone is being harmed or hurt. We don't take that lightly. We don't just walk by and say oh, you know, you can beat them up. Go ahead. Do what you want. This is not a Muslim I don't care No. We look after the protection safety of everyone in anything. If someone is harming an animal we look after that animal as well. If someone is harming the nature of the trees, they take a knife and they're just you know, carving into a tree in a park. You go and you stop them. What are you doing? This is this is a tree this thing brings us oxygen. You don't need to get into
it and say Oh Allah created this and no, that person might say okay, whatever man, thank you very much for your preaching. No, you make them understand what it is first. Because it is a creation of a lot and it produces oxygen for us. And it gives us fruit, it gives us greenery, we enjoy it. It makes us happy. You might see someone who's sick inside a mental health.
They come out, they look at a tree and the whole world becomes beautiful for them. And hamdulillah
it's a creation of Allah. And so when we give Sam to each other, it brings love amongst us in society. We feel better, we feel protected, we feel happy. It's important for us to re instill those values in US re instill those values. And I know a lot of people say oh, you know, it's the opposite gender. If we do that, then they're gonna think we're you're flirting with them or, you know, you give Salaam to someone, a sister who's outside and then she tells her husband, oh, you know, brother, so and so give me some Why did he do that? What?
cultural boundaries? Yeah. So people think, Oh, you know, why you? Why are you speaking of my life? I'm not speaking to you. Right? I made a deal out for her. This is good. She made a draft for me. That's good. I wasn't checking her out. She wasn't checking me out. She was walking this way. I was walking that way you walk you walk past each other. You're not, you know, the intention. So kind of, I don't know why we, you know, and the youth came now, so I don't want to use some of these terms. But I don't know why we feel sometimes, as though when we're doing something islamically towards the opposite gender. It's as though it's there's there must be some, you know, sexual reason behind it.
No, it's no reason behind it. I'm saying a set Mr. alikum. Is that something? How long? Is this something wrong? Is that something bad? You're making a draft for the protection of this sister who's walking down the street? Is it wrong? No, it isn't. So we need to be people that, like the brother mentioned, break down those cultural barriers. And re vive the son of the Prophet sallallahu I had a US and this popped into my head last night like I said, I left the mustard and I'm the family we're all getting into the car and his sister comes out and she says nice and loud SNM already convertible to whoever I can wabarakatuh hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah a sister is getting sent
him to someone else that's great. And it made me as as a man I don't you think to yourself, I'm a man I don't need safety and protection. Yes, you do. You need it as well. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us through the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the importance of giving Salah so why am I saying this? you're performing errante calf remember? We said perfect, the little Sunnah. Perfect the little Sunnah that you do? You might notice that you're the individual that when people come for a thought for example that they come for tada we you go and give Salaam to only the people that you know
right? Why not give them to the people that we don't know? Why not give them to the people we don't know why not sit with the people that we don't know why don't we get to know each other? Just randomly go to someone said Mr. honeycomb. My name is down what's your name? Right. Get to know someone. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us when you spread Salaam it creates love amongst each other unity it brings the community together. Why aren't we doing that? Another so now that we can perfect for those that are performing at Cafe those that just showed up? were addressing the mark tech caffeine and giving them advice on how they can use their time to perfect little
Sunnah, that in the community we see are dwindling away. And they've been given the opportunity with time to devote to protect and revive those Sunnah. So another son that is smile tabassum What does the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say about it? sadaqa sadaqa does that mean we're all charity cases that we all need? charity? No. It means that it makes someone feel good. You smile It is like a charity that you give to them when someone gives you an idea someone gives you a gift someone gives you something Don't you feel good? You love that person? You feel like Subhanallah I need to give them something back. Someone smiles at you. You smile back at them right you gave them back
what they gave you or you give them something nice as well. Mashallah, I'm seeing John's
catches my eye boom. JOHN, sir. See? We're happy you're sure that John's Oh, we feel happy to get in here. Mashallah, what's up? handleless smile at one another. revive the smile.
No, no, no, no.
Smile at each other. bring that back. You see Al Hamdulillah he came through the door and he said I have for you. We all felt that we all smiled, right? We're all like, oh, maybe he's gonna share something with us too. Right. So Panama. And so we feel happy when we smile to each other tabassum sadaqa. So learn to bring the smile back into our lives in sha Allah hutan little little things, little things that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did and taught us that the majority of society nowadays is overlooking. We know we're supposed to smile, but we don't have the opportunity to practice it. So practice it during our decaf. We know we're supposed to give them to each other,
but we don't do it. So practice it during our decaf. You know that you're supposed to learn what you're reciting ayatul kursi your test v
etc learn it practice it drink or decaf it's a beautiful time to do that. Simple things like some of you know miswak what is the son of miswak using them
to clean your teeth keep your teeth clean with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam uses right hander his left hand
right hand which means he never used his left hand.
He never did
know both why both
right hand right side and left side because your teeth Come on this side and well I can clean on this side with this hand in this hand. I don't know if you notice but Allah gave us you know the Canada arm. In space we can move this arm Mashallah from right to left from up to down in front to back handler 360 degrees it goes everywhere. Mashallah, why did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sometimes use the right hand and the left hand if he was approaching Sala, and he just finished making rulu and his mouth was already clean. It wasn't smelling bad or anything, but it was just before salah and he wanted to just use it to clean it. Just out of showing, you know, honor I'm
about to stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala, he would use his right hand, his mouth already smells good. He was just refreshing his mouth, he would use his right hand. But if his breath was not smelling so good, and he wanted to clean his mouth and teeth, his breath, he would use his left hand, we use our left hand to clean things, or to for things that are not not so clean, dirty, we use our left hand, right. So even with regards to this Ewok SubhanAllah. There are things that we can learn things that we can learn and things that we can re instill in our lives. We're losing some now honestly, we're losing them. We're losing them as in we're not practicing them. We're leaving
them in the books, we're not bringing them to life. It's important that we bring the sunlight to life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And, and understand, for example, combing hair, combing hair, or putting on perfume. How did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to comb his hair? I'm not talking about hairstyle. before he even styled it, what would you do? It's something nice that you're doing so he would use his right hand and he would start with the right side. And he would make sure that he combed the right side first because it's something nice, it's clean, you're beautifying yourself. So he would do the right side first and then the left side. So
when you begin, use your right hand and brush your left your right sir, brush your right side first, right and then move to the left. When putting on perfume, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would put perfume were in his left hand or his right hand. Right hand. It's clean. It's nice, it smells good. He was beautifying himself, he would begin with the right side and then the left side. When putting on our shoes, the profits that along that later on, we'll begin with his right foot and then his left foot, right always begin with the right foot and the left foot. Someone says, Well, your shoes are dirty. Yeah, but he was doing something. So if you're beginning something, you're
entering something, you're starting something you start with the right and you move to the left. When you enter the mustard, you start with your right foot and you say the door how how many of us actually say the door when we finish the bathroom? When we finish using the bathroom? things that we've lost, then people say, you know what, I'm possessed by a gym or I'm affected with this and that jinn magic, etc. But we go and use the bathroom, which is a place that is not clean, not a place of worship. There's not you know, any bad that that's happening so that so the jinn are away, and that's a place of angels. No, it's a place where you enter and you say, you are protecting
yourself. And when you come out you're also saying the DAO flajnik Alhamdulillah Illa de aza Daniella Dawa, funny. you're thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala Alhamdulillah. Again, I'm relieved of what I just finished doing in their last counterweights. I had it protected me while I was in there as well. Right. So these are little some of the profits alone. And even some we're losing, we're losing because we're not doing them. We're not losing as in the gun. No, they're in the books, but we're not putting them in our lives. We need to do that. And you have the opportunity now during RT Cath to do that. And when you do it, you teach your family members, you go back and you teach
your family. And when you teach your family, they teach their friends. And so you see you could be one person who teaches for five, and the whole community throughout the next 11 years. 11 years, the next 11 months, benefits from your air to calf. How because the little things that you paid attention to spread like wildfire across the whole community, all of Oakville benefited from the, I don't know 1520 people performing our take off because they taught their families and they taught their friends etc. Amazing. That's how knowledge transmits. And so we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us to learn the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam take our time and
performing actions of Ava and to spend time learning this Deen and seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala throughout the last few nights of Ramadan and few days
That we have left tonight is the 29th night of Ramadan.
And we see that the numbers already even though there's quite a few people here, there's far less people than on the 27th. Right? Far less people than on the 27th continue to look for later toccata
Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran was de Ruvo Isla mo phenol it

And the scholars say this is not just a competition amongst each other, compete with yourself with your own self with my knifes, you know what I want to go to sleep, you know what, but I'm going to compete with myself.

I'm going to trust that Allah is going to get rid of the hunger that I'm feeling was Sadie who I'm pushing myself and this is a type of jihad. When people always say Jihad they refer to it in the fighting sense. No, this is jihad, enough's. This is fighting with your own
desires, putting your own desires aside, and going the distance. I'm going to stay awake and recite some code and I'm going to stay awake and smile at someone I'm going to stay awake and give them to someone. I'm going to learn what I'm from someone or I learned it, so I'm going to teach it to someone else right? teach it to someone else. Sit with each other and teach sudo Fatiha pronounce it properly correctly. If you haven't perfected that during your air decaf, let that be the first thing that you do. Perfect your recitation of Surah Fatiha Allah Subhana Allah says was Sadie who Isla Mughal filati middle of become, strive hard to compete with yourself to what to achieve forgiveness

And Jenna, so strive hard to achieve forgiveness and gentlemen, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us forgiveness during this month of Ramadan to save us and protect us from the Hellfire and to grant us the highest levels of gender may not have been had I mean, what sort of la sala mobarak and anabaena Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, which is a local Faden was Santa Monica Marana to LA he was
