And my bad for us to call Hadith the Kitab Allah wa Sena, had you had you Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
Rocco llamada in VEDA will attend Bala were called out in phenom. Brothers and Sisters in Islam. The title of our hotbar today is how to end a good deed. And in short, when you complete any good deed that you present to Allah subhanaw taala there are two ways to end the deed and that is with the vicar with remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala and with so far, and you will see this message repeated in many different aspects, not just many different acts of worship in many different aspects in Islam. Even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
at the end of his life, was given the same advice to make vicar and Easter for and that is one surah Nasir was sent down Allah Allah Allah says Bismillah Hirahara Rahim either Janasena Allahu alayhi wa eight and nausea the whole Luna feeding Allah He of Raja for sub Bebi. Hamdi Arabic, so now you're making praise of Allah subhanaw taala, which is liqueur, Westover, who in who cannot awaba And so towards the end of your life, you end it with vicar, and you end it with Esther for seeking forgiveness from Allah azza wa jal. Same thing with the month of Ramadan, you see that you are striving to do good deeds throughout the entire month. And towards the end, the focus becomes on
forgiveness. Even the best night which is the night everyone is striving for Leila to cada and Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam, when I should ask them what should I say? It goes back to pardoning which is even higher than is too far.
Hola Hola Anika I for one to hibel Funny or Hola. You're the one who pardons and you love to pardon? So pardon me so even higher than forgiveness. So ending things with Victor and ending with is tougher we'll focus on the far one of the most clear examples is that what we say the minute we finished the Salah, the minute you finished praying which is the best act of worship done through the body, you say stuff for Allah three times. And that is something that you typically say after doing a bad deed. But why are we saying stuff for Allah three times the scholars say number one, your shortcomings, whatever I presented in the Salah, whatever lack of focus, whatever lack of
humility whenever my mind wandered. So the first thing is I'm asking Allah Subhana Allah is forgiveness for that. And then it's like saying, Your Allah, this Salah that I just completed is not deserving and not befitting of your greatness and not befitting of Your Majesty. If you claim Rahim, Allah the scholar, he said, It's like presenting your your good deeds, you wrap them up. And then when you give it to Allah subhanaw taala. What do you say? He says, When you love someone, and you want to present them with something, you present it with an apology. So when you love someone and you present them with a gift, you present it with an apology. You know, this is just a mere token,
this is far less than what you deserve. You deserve a lot more than this. I wish I could have done better for you or I could have done more for you. So it's like presenting this Salah to Allah subhanaw taala without apology because there were shortcomings in it because you deserve more than this. Yeah, Allah's region, and in quantity and in quality. And then what it does for the believing man or woman is that there is no way you can be arrogant after understanding this, that you finish an act of worship, and you're still asking Allah subhanaw taala to forgive, and you're still making the good of Allah, there is no way a person can be arrogant. If you just look at all the good deeds
that were accomplished in the month of Ramadan, realistically, all of them were a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala. Allah azza wa jal facilitated that and it could be that Allah saw goodness in someone's heart, and so caused them to draw nearer to him, and shower them with his mercy. And
the month of Ramadan, Allah subhanaw taala chose it for us and told us to strive hard and to read Quran and to pray at night and to do all kinds of good deeds. So Allah azza wa jal had guided us to that there is no way you can be arrogant after presenting what you presented to Allah subhanaw taala because the truth is, when you're making clear, and you're fasting and you're sitting down reading the Quran, are you really doing something for Allah? Or is Allah azza wa jal doing something for you? And who is more benefiting here? Who is more in need? It is definitely from our part, we're the ones benefiting we're the ones in need. So Allah Allah is actually doing something for us. This
yesterday I saw this man and he's always just sitting in the same corner in the masjid, reciting Quran day and night, the whole month. So he said for a moment I looked at him, I said, look, look what he's what he's doing for Allah. And then he said, No, look what Allah Allah is doing for this man. How he spent his whole month with the book of Allah contemplating purifying him, increasing his Eman. Look what Allah is doing for this man. So how can someone ever think they could get arrogant after presenting something to Allah azza wa jal and Allah azza wa jal facilitated everything, even specifically, look at the recitation of the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala made the Quran appealing and
he made it lovable and likeable. And he made it made it comforting when you read it you Eman increases and you receive comfort from it. And while you're reading it physically, or you will you're getting and as you're going through it, the motion of reading it you are getting rewarded for reading every letter of it. So all this Allah subhanaw taala facilitated that. How can someone after this sit down read the Quran for two hours and feel arrogant that they presented something to Allah, Allah Allah Allah azza wa jal presented something to them.
And who else rewards you for benefiting while you're benefiting? Yeah, now Allah azza wa jal will give you reward when you sit for an hour or two reciting the Quran. But when you're sitting, reciting the Quran, you're benefiting and Allah has really is rewarding you for sitting there benefiting and what analogy can we give to explain this? It's like someone who works at a place where he prints money for himself. While he's working there printing money for himself to take home he gets paid to do that. You're getting benefit from benefiting
and it's Allah subhanaw taala who assisted us and as we say everyday, he cannot do what he can Stein. And if it wasn't for the assistance of Allah subhanaw taala we wouldn't pray we wouldn't fast and there are many people right outside the
this room who were not fasting they didn't even know that it was the month of Ramadan they had no clue what it is upon us and didn't even know that Ramadan came and went but Allah subhanaw taala guided us to it. So that's why we make so far that's why we're seeking Allah subhanaw taala is forgiveness and we see this in many places I was going to look at or we're going to look at Inshallah, then you make dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala. And you see this in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says willing to get better Allah Allah Maha Dokkum when Allah come to school, so you seeing that it could be rot, which is dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala. Also, for either of up to min
Arafa both of these are sort of Bukhara. And what is an out if you go and use nada and the visa Salam would combine the whole and the answer. So it combined them at the lower time. And then from that moment, until Maghrib, he is making dua to Allah azza wa jal with his hands up like this. They said even if he needed to do something, he would do it with one hand and keep the other hand up. So it's somewhere from five to six hours of straight DUA and asking Allah Subhana Allah to forgive and that's what Hajj is all about, and that's when you will be forgiven. Yet, after all, that Allah subhanaw taala says for either a foot two men out of that first kulula You just spent five six hours
in decurrent Dua and is the VOD but Allah says when you're done with alpha, furred, Kula, and then Masha and haram in here would be Mustafa. You still gotta mention Allah subhanaw taala. And not only that, the next day the process, prayed vegetarians deliver. And then he went and stood in May dog for about an hour and then he went in through the first Gemma rod and made dua for about an hour then went to the next one and made to offer an hour then went to the after hour of the day, the morning after Arafah is still asking Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness, even though Hajj is an act of worship, that if you complete it and it's accepted, you come back without any sins, but
you're still being commanded by Allah subhanaw taala to keep making stuff up, that's how you end the good deed. And if you contemplate after Hajj, and after Ramadan, what do we say? In the aid that could be rot? Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Azza wa ala Hill hump making dhikr of Allah subhanahu wa Tada
and the resort Allah Azza Sallam told the companion MA The bingeable Allahu Anhu. He says Yamaha in Nila of hymnbook he says, oh my god, indeed love you. Letter the Unoh dubara kula Salah tin to hold. He says Don't ever leave or forget to do this at the end of each salah. Allahumma inni Allah the clicker will shoot cricket. Oh Allah assist me in your remembrance, and in being thankful to you one as he's saying this at the end of the Salah, which was the epitome of remembrance of Allah azza wa jal was never the trick.
So right after salah, you're asking Allah Subhana Allah to assist you in decurrent to assist you in Shuker after a Juma on the day of Friday and Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, for either fully at the salah Fen tissue roof in herbs so when the prayer is over, so spread about in the land. Well beautiful woman fugly Allah with Kuru Lucha Kathy Iran LUCAM to flee home seek from the assistance in the bounties of Allah and mentioned Allah much so that you may prosper. So the message is that it's not Ramadan is over, it's now vacation time Ramadan is over. Now I go back to lifestyle A which is me outside of the month of Ramadan, but it's you trying to continue to do good trying to
continue to be better. And that's our job to try to get to continue to draw nearer to Allah subhanaw taala. And we try to as The Scholars say, you move from into art in ilaqua. I try to move from one act of obedience to another act of obedience, as Allah says in the Quran, for either for of the fun sub, where a lot of big effort, there is not a break, when you're done. And you go back and you turn back to Allah subhanaw taala immediately.
So what are the verses really the translation is saying so when you are free, exert yourself to the utmost and devote yourself to your Lord.
It is also important to remind me a lot of times and you hear this a lot in Hatha Benin speeches, people say things like one of the signs that you're fasting has been accepted is when you continue upon the same fare after Ramadan that you were upon in Ramadan. And the scholar said this is not accurate. Yeah, and Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam himself was not the same in Ramadan is outside of Ramadan and not the same in the last 10 Ramadan as he was in the first 20. So it's not true that this is one of the signs of acceptance and these things might even end
Make someone lose hope a little bit since they find the change after the month of Ramadan. But the point is that we were supposed to acquire and pick up good habits that will continue throughout the month of Ramadan and do our best to continue to remain devoted to Allah subhanaw taala Akoto colada was stopped for Allah Allah them Leo welcome in Gmail Google first off through fire hose almost for free and ask Allah subhanaw taala for his forgiveness Indeed, those who ask for his forgiveness shall prosper
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah hill I mean what are the the he was a big mind about the second hotbar just wanted to mention a couple of things related to eat salads a cut and filter.
So the first thing is the cutting filter, you have to pay it and you'll see boxes labeled in the back there and it's $10 per person per family member so anyone who's in your home under you so to speak, you would pay even if your wife were pregnant, you would pay for the unborn child $10 per person. Some of the new some young people might ask them I live in my father's home and I work now so should I pay for myself or should i It doesn't matter at this point if your father pays for you it's acceptable if you pay for yourself it's also acceptable, but you have to do it before the Eid Salah if you do it after that it will become a sadaqa like any other sadaqa but you do it before the
The other thing is we after the Salah inshallah we want to do some light gathering light amounts are not aggressive, basically fundraising for the works. And to explain the work first of all, and everyone would dream to come to a masjid where there is not much yelling all day and night about give, give, give give. So the wealth of idea is this amount that we're trying to raise, and then it's going, it's being invested. And if like it's just what it always says if we started this many years ago, the mission, not just our Masjid. But if Muslim organizations started this many years ago, they would all have in the millions. And anytime they gathered money from the community would
just be to assist others and for other projects and things of that sort, but at least the massage it would be their operational costs would not be dependent upon people giving constantly to keep the masjid operating. But what's great about the opportunity of the work, we know when you give Allah so how to other rewards you more forgiving, you do a good deed, Allah rewards it by multiplies it by 10 and then multiplies that by seven then multiplies that by 100. But now you're going to give money which Allah always inshallah rewards you for.
But this money now is going to grow. So it's like double the benefit, something that will multiply and then multiply again. So that's the great opportunity of giving to the world. So we'll do that after the Salah in sha Allah.
And then the last thing is like if anyone has any symptoms or a lot of things going around these days, if anyone has any symptoms, obviously you're free to come to Tarawa and free to come to the aid prayer but we do recommend that you wear your mask as just as a courtesy to other people so you don't spread whatever you have. So with that, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make use of those who recognize the truth as clear truth and follow the best of it. And to make us of those who recognize falsehood as clear falsehood and abstain from it.
