Oh, my God. We begin by praising Allah subhanaw taala we praise Allah subhanaw taala as he deserves to be praised, and we send peace and blessings upon his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
when he came to the city of Medina, and he saw its people with their own celebrations, with their own days of commemoration.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said to them, in an equally coalminer lead, what
he said to every nation, they have their days of celebration, and these are our days of celebration.
The reality my brothers and sisters, is that celebrations
are inevitably tied to our values and to our beliefs. We value what we celebrate, we celebrate what we value.
If we value our nation states, then we're celebrations will be nationalistic.
If we value our tribe in our lineage, then we will have tribal celebrations. If we value our history and our past victories, that our celebrations will be historical, but this is our leads in an equal age, what are you doing? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said to them in the lock with Abdullah Combi Habima
men who are either love her or even better, he said Allah has replaced your eyes with that which is better than them, which is the
end of fifth. And so we are blessing that we have these days.
And now our days of reads are tied to the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. The our celebration is intimately tied to our purpose in life.
Can I ask the sisters in sha Allah please not to have conversations during the Second Law theater.
Our celebrations are tied intimately to our purpose in life. It keeps us grounded.
It allows us to forego the temporary pleasures for long lasting happiness. Allah subhanaw taala tells us could be from the law he will be rahmati for the dalai Kefalonia.
He said that say in the bounty of Allah and in His mercy in this they should be happy. We derive joy from the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala we derive joy from the fact that we worshipped him that we turn to him in this month of Ramadan, and that Allah subhanaw taala is appreciative that he forgives the sins that He rewards our effort and our sacrifice. Our Prophet sallallahu sallam said, No saw me for 450 he were forgotten and because of that, he said to the one who fasts they have two forms of joy. The joy that occurs when they break her fast and the joy that occurs when they meet their Lord. Today we have broken our fast and we are joyful for it. And tomorrow in sha Allah we will meet our
Lord subhanho wa Taala and be joyful for what he will reward us for our efforts. As we fasted during this month. Allah subhanaw taala says, while he took me to what he took a bit of Allah Allah
while I let him touch moon, he said that you may complete the appointed time, and that you may make tech to be at odds that you may grant defy Allah subhanaw taala over what He has guided you, and that you may be thankful. So it is important for us to reflect over our time in Ramadan, to be grateful for the blessings of our time in Ramadan. To be grateful for everything that Allah has facilitated for us in this month, to be grateful that we strove in our prayers, to be grateful that we strove in our fasting, to be grateful that we strove in our charity in our dua, and our recitation of the Quran, and that we continue with it. Our gratitude means that we continue moving
forward with what we were able to do as much as we can after Ramadan, where I would love
worship your Lord until the certainty comes to you, meaning death comes to you, which is certain.
just as we were worshipping Allah and this month to continue after, and just like in that month of Ramadan, we were not done
of the actions that were voluntary. Sometimes we tell people this is a that is sunnah that is Mr. Hab. It is voluntary but it is good to do and they say it should know. And in their mind that means they don't have to do it. But in Ramadan we were doing the Sunnah we were coming to pray today, which is sunnah we are standing for pm and lane which is sunnah we were giving charity which is sunnah we were making extra dua which is sunnah we were doing vicar of Allah, which is sunnah. We were not dismissive of the Sunnah during Ramadan. So let's not be dismissive of after Ramadan. And the prophets of Allah where it was salam said that Allah Azza metaphoric Devi in a have any
amendment ferrata Houari that my servant is not come closer to me with anything more than what I have made obligatory upon them. And he said what I said, Well, Abdi, it's a follow up.
And my servant does not continue to draw closer to me with the voluntary deeds until I love him. And so we should remember this in order to continue to doing the extra the voluntary Unto Allah subhanaw taala loves us and as we move forward into this month, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Min sama Ramadan. What about her who was system and Chawan the Whoever fasts, the month of Ramadan, and then follows it with six extra days from Chawan forgetting them al Sama, Dara Kula it says if he has fasted the entire year all together, of the blessings of Ramadan, my brothers and sisters, was that we were in the company of unrighteous Muslims. We were coming to the masjid to pray to eat a
thought to be in the company of other Muslims. And this elevated our spirituality and connected us to Allah subhanaw taala.
And many of us in this month, when we were around each other, we were striving to bring happiness to other Muslims with our time volunteering our efforts giving charity, this gave Ramadan a beauty, a sweetness. This is one of the ways we draw closer to Allah subhanaw taala especially on the day of AIDS, but on every day that we try to make the Muslims around us happy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I had been nursed in a
man in Allah to rule
Muslim. He said that the most benefit the most beloved people in the sight of Allah are the most beneficial. And that's an action that is most beloved to Allah is bringing happiness to the hearts of another Muslim. We know the Hadith when a man came into the masjid. And our beloved I mess with the Allahu Anhu was doing out decaf in the masjid. And a man came to him and said about the problems that he has. So that I best said I will come with you. I will intercede on your behalf. I will try to fix your problem. And they started to leave and some reason. I'm dilla Are you going to leave the messages when you are doing it? Are you going to break you out decaf? And he said yes. Because I
heard my beloved son Allahu Allah, you are sending them saying, learn MC ma as he if he had it in his
famous tree, the heart chakra. He said that I worked with my brother in his moment of need to help him in his need is more beloved than if I were to do our T calf in my Masjid meaning the message of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for an entire month. This is our religion. And so after Ramadan, and many, many people have done our T calf for us to get the reward of that it
is to be in the aid of our brothers and sisters in Islam and to help them whenever we can. This is the religion of bringing happiness to other Muslims. And Kenny McCoy Eva sadaqa. The Prophet said the kind word is a charity to the symbol Kofi what she has GFC sadaqa your smile on the face of your brother is a southern. And so we should strive especially on this day of varied, but in many days and every day to try to bring happiness and joy to other people. Likewise, from the blessings of this month of Ramadan is the increased time with our family. We break our fast every night with our family. We sit together we eat together, we talk to each other, we're in each other's company, we
feel a connection to our family. And it's incredibly important after we leave this month of Ramadan, that we continue to strive to strive and to try to establish better connections with our family. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
He reminds us that Allah subhanaw taala says Anna Rahman will hear
that I am the most merciful and it is a rough and raw means literally the womb, but it can be translated as the family. Allah created the family. And he said, I am a rough man, I am the merciful and it is a Rahim. I have taken it out of my name. Allah has created this concept of family and he said I split it or I took it out of my name of Rama.
And so Allah Subhana Allah bestowed a tremendous honor on this concept of family that he created Japan onwards the Isla, the Prophet, sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that after Allah created the creation,
the family, the womb, the family connections, cling to the Throne of Allah,
a claim to the Throne of Allah and asked Allah what is my status with you?
And Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Are you not pleased? That the one who connects you, the one who takes care of the family relation, the family ties, that I will connect to them, and the one who severs the ties of family, then I will sever my ties with them. This is the power of family in our religion. And the early days of Islam, a man from outside of Mecca came to our Prophet Sall along with him, and he said, Hey, man, and who are you? The Prophet said, I am a prophet. He said I was a newbie. And he said, I'll send an Allah Allah has sent me to the people. He said, What did he send you with? This is the beginning of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
Otto said in the vicinity.
When you want Allah widow should we share two things The Prophet said, he says me to connect the family relations, to connect the family relations, that's one and to break the idols, and to have people worship Allah alone and to not associate in the worship of Allah, anyone. There's two things to worship Allah alone and the family relations. At that time, there's no Sudan, there's no obvious commandments come later. This is the essential part of our religion, to establish the family. And we live in a day in an age where the family is seen as being an evil.
We're having a family and the connections of family and families having expectations of each other is seen as an evil. This is an inversion of the fitrah that Allah subhanaw taala gave us of the way that Allah created us. Allah created us with this concept of family for us to take care of it first to establish the ties amongst each other. We live in this day, where children are encouraged to go no contact with their families, to sever the ties of kinship with their families.
This is the definition of evil by the standards of our religion, the inversion of Islamic ideals, and this leads to the breakdown of society and ultimately of individuals. And this way Allah subhanaw taala says, fell
into a lake and Tafseer
what are hanekom? Allah says, Have you thought? Or that perhaps, if you were to turn away from Allah subhanaw taala that you would cause corruption and that you would break the ties of family, you would break the ties of kinship, may Allah subhanaw taala protect us from that may Allah subhanaw taala keep us and our families United upon the truth fell
through in order for him.
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah hee hee hee, hee hee, woman who Allah, Allah, Allah are servants of Allah fear Allah subhanaw taala
and be dutiful to Allah subhanaw taala in all your affairs.
As we reflect on the blessing of family on this date,
it's important for us to realize as well, that one of the methods of destroying the family that has become popular in today's day and age is to drive men and women against each other, to make them resent each other, to make them blame each other, to make them hate each other, to make them enemies of one another. And our religion teaches us that we are allies of one another. Allah subhanaw taala that says,
Well, let me know and I will move
God the believing men and the believing women. They are allies of one another. Yeah moon roof way and helping out on the moon cover up Munna salah they enjoying what is good, they forbid what is evil, they established the salah they give Visakha will tell you when Allah Allah saw that and they obey Allah and they obey His messenger. And so in the obedience of Allah subhanaw taala we will protect our families and the obedience of Allah azza wa jal, men and women become allies to one another, and the obedience of Allah subhanaw taala were able to find the right path away from all of these isms, away from all of these deviant ideologies and conceptions of turning people away from
Allah subhanaw taala. And so men, in our communities in our families should remember the responsibility to leave their family, with honesty, with sacrifice. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us no servant, is entrusted with a flock and does not care for it sincerely, except that they will not smell the scent of paradise. So men, Allah subhanaw taala made you leaders of your families, take care of it with sincerity, with honesty, with kindness with sacrifice,
as Allah subhanaw taala has commanded you to do, and women in our communities, you need to remember your responsibility towards Allah subhanaw taala and towards your family and our prophets of Allah who are already using them said it so let's

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide us to guide the men in our community and the women of our community and the children of our community to the right path. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep us and our hearts firm upon his religion. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept from us our good deeds in this month of Ramadan, our prayer and our fasting and our charity along with
