00:01:19--> 00:01:21

My dear brothers and sisters.

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

migrated from Mecca to Medina

00:01:32--> 00:01:33

before entering Medina

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

he stopped on the outskirts in Cuba

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

and built the very first Masjid in Islam Mr. Kuba

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

that was the very first thing that he did

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

before he even entered the city of Medina.

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

Then after that he proceeded on on to Medina

00:02:00--> 00:02:03

and after entering and being welcomed by the inhabitants of Medina,

00:02:04--> 00:02:07

the very first project that he undertook

00:02:08--> 00:02:10

was to build his masjid

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

and after he built it,

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

he built the apartments of his wives around it.

00:02:19--> 00:02:25

And the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu all built their houses around the mistake

00:02:31--> 00:02:33

and then from that day onwards,

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

the Masjid became

00:02:37--> 00:02:40

the focal point of that community.

00:02:42--> 00:02:44

The Masjid became the center.

00:02:46--> 00:02:49

He became everything in the lives of the Sahaba

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

he was from the masjid that they learned their Deen

00:02:57--> 00:03:00

he was from the masjid that they spread their Deen

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

was the masjid that was everything for them.

00:03:07--> 00:03:08

The Masjid

00:03:10--> 00:03:11

was where they went.

00:03:13--> 00:03:16

To not only worship Allah subhana who went to Hara

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

but the masjid was

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

where they settle their disputes.

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

And so the masjid was a court.

00:03:28--> 00:03:31

It was a town hall. It was a school.

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

It was a place of shelter,

00:03:38--> 00:03:39

a place of refuge.

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

It was a place to go

00:03:44--> 00:03:48

when the entire world came crashing down on you and you had nowhere else to go.

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

But now let our Let us ask ourselves

00:03:58--> 00:04:00

does that seem meaning

00:04:02--> 00:04:06

exists in our lives today? 1400 years later?

00:04:07--> 00:04:10

What does MSG mean to us?

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

Do we hold it as dearly

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

as the first generation holdings?

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

And so my dear brothers and sisters, the answer to that question

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

is found

00:04:29--> 00:04:32

in your sentiments and your feelings

00:04:34--> 00:04:37

over the last several weeks and last several months

00:04:38--> 00:04:40

when the masjid was closed

00:04:44--> 00:04:48

and its doors were shut. How did you feel?

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

If you felt that state of grief,

00:04:54--> 00:04:56

missing the masjid

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

Then in sha Allah Who to hell, it's a good sign.

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

telling us about seven people who will be shaded

00:05:11--> 00:05:23

by the shade of Allah subhanho wa Taala on a day in which there will be no shade except his. And among the seven that he mentioned, why don't you don't call myself

00:05:25--> 00:05:28

a man whose heart is attached to the messages

00:05:29--> 00:05:33

in another narration, every time he leaves, he longs

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

to go back to it.

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

And so my dear brothers and sisters

00:05:42--> 00:05:43


00:05:44--> 00:05:45

have felt that

00:05:46--> 00:05:50

the Rebbe went down, their Eman went down.

00:05:51--> 00:05:55

Their relationship with Allah went down as a Rosarito as a result

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

of being distanced from the mystery.

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

Why, what is it that makes the mystery so special?

00:06:05--> 00:06:07

What makes the mystery so special

00:06:10--> 00:06:13

is that it belongs to Allah subhana wa Tada Allah

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

and doesn't belong to any human being.

00:06:21--> 00:06:28

It's a structure it's a place that was built for Allah alone and for nobody else.

00:06:30--> 00:06:31

And that's why in the Quran,

00:06:33--> 00:06:41

Allah subhanahu wa taala attributes the masjid to himself, and doesn't leave it open without attributing to anyone.

00:06:42--> 00:06:44

He doesn't attribute it to anyone.

00:06:46--> 00:06:47

But rather he attributes it

00:06:48--> 00:06:49

to himself.

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

Well Enel massage either Lila

00:06:57--> 00:07:04

and the massage belong to Allah. So do not worship do not call upon anyone besides him.

00:07:05--> 00:07:09

feeble uten Eddie in Allah Who Allahu en to refer our youth to cut off he has

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

usurped the hula hoop, he has been who do we want

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

in houses,

00:07:18--> 00:07:19

that Allah has permitted,

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

for his name to be remembered,

00:07:26--> 00:07:34

for these massages to be raised elevated, and for his name to be remembered, and for him to be glorified in these massages

00:07:35--> 00:07:36

D in D O.

la to Li him t jar or to in Walla Walla, what you call him is Salah, what Eater is your half woman or young woman to the con la movie.

00:07:51--> 00:07:52

In it are men

00:07:53--> 00:07:56

who are not distracted from the remembrance of Allah.

00:07:59--> 00:08:11

By train by buying and selling by business, they are not distracted by that from the remembrance of Allah and establishing salah and giving into calm

00:08:12--> 00:08:26

and they fear a Day in which the hearts and the eyes will tremble in fear. In Moodle messaggi, the law firm and a biller he wants to make what are called masala. What does occur

00:08:27--> 00:08:28

when I'm usually

00:08:31--> 00:08:36

the only ones deserving of maintaining what does Allah say, the masajid of Allah

00:08:38--> 00:08:44

or none. But those who believe in Allah in the last day, established their salah, giving there's a cap

00:08:46--> 00:08:48

and they don't fear anyone except from LA.

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

now that our masajid have reopened

00:08:58--> 00:09:11

let us let us attach ourselves to them. For we have no excuse anymore. Just like we made our homes into a masjid over these last several months.

00:09:12--> 00:09:15

It is time now to make the mystery.

00:09:16--> 00:09:30

00:10:40--> 00:10:42

My dear brothers and sisters

00:10:45--> 00:10:48

as the lock down slowly and gradually comes to an end.

00:10:51--> 00:10:54

And as the restriction slowly and gradually

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

begin to become lifted.

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

There are several lessons

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

that we have learned

00:11:07--> 00:11:09

over these last several months

00:11:11--> 00:11:11

of being

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

in this lockdown

00:11:16--> 00:11:19

among these lessons is first and foremost

00:11:21--> 00:11:22

that everything

00:11:24--> 00:11:27

is in the hands of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

He controls this universe.

00:11:31--> 00:11:35

He controls every single thing that happens in this world.

00:11:38--> 00:11:41

And so when we human beings thought that we had reached the pinnacle

00:11:42--> 00:11:45

of our human advancement

00:11:46--> 00:11:49

in science and technology, all of a sudden,

00:11:51--> 00:11:54

our world came crashing down to a standstill.

00:11:57--> 00:12:01

And we realized that everything is in the hands of a lot.

00:12:03--> 00:12:08

And that he is wrong questioned about what he does, but rather whatever Allah does,

00:12:10--> 00:12:12

is for a higher wisdom,

00:12:14--> 00:12:14

law use

00:12:16--> 00:12:19

Elune don't question Allah.

00:12:20--> 00:12:29

Allah is not to be questioned, but rather Worry about yourself, because you are the one who will be questioned by Allah on the Day of Judgment.

00:12:30--> 00:12:33

We also learned that Islam taught us everything

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

that we need to know

00:12:38--> 00:12:42

in every situation, in every circumstance.

00:12:44--> 00:12:54

So we learned how Islam taught us about cleanliness, for example, 1400 years ago, things that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam taught us

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

that are today being encouraged

00:12:58--> 00:13:00

by health professionals.

00:13:01--> 00:13:07

We learned the importance of bonding with our family,

00:13:08--> 00:13:20

being Australian home and spending time with the family, in a day and age, when people have become disconnected from their family members, and those closest to them.

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

We have learned

00:13:23--> 00:13:36

that we can change our bad habits. Yes, many of us who thought that we can never change some of our bad habits, we were able to do so.

00:13:37--> 00:13:40

In these last several months, we learned

00:13:42--> 00:13:44

that there are many things

00:13:45--> 00:13:49

that we are used to having in our lives that we could do without

00:13:51--> 00:13:54

we learned that many things

00:13:55--> 00:13:59

that we spend so much money on in our lives,

00:14:00--> 00:14:10

whether it be material things, whether it be material temporary enjoyment, we found that we could do with all these things

00:14:13--> 00:14:17

and that these are the things the extra is in this dunya

00:14:20--> 00:14:23

that that the extra is in this dunya

00:14:24--> 00:14:27

that will benefit you in the very least in that

00:14:29--> 00:14:35

we learned my dear brothers and sisters, that being distant from Allah subhanahu wa Tada

00:14:37--> 00:14:39

and sins

00:14:40--> 00:14:45

are a reason for having blessings taken away from us.

00:14:47--> 00:14:48

And that the only way

00:14:50--> 00:14:55

to have blessings to remain with us is by turning to Allah subhana water and

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

seeking His forgiveness

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

Turning to him in repentance.

00:15:06--> 00:15:09

There was once a student

00:15:12--> 00:15:13

who was told by his teacher

00:15:16--> 00:15:17

that if

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

you were traveling,

00:15:21--> 00:15:23

and you came across

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

a shepherd with his dog barking at you,

00:15:28--> 00:15:31

how would you meet the dog to stop barking?

00:15:34--> 00:15:37

He said, I would pick up a stone and throw it out the door.

00:15:39--> 00:15:41

He said he'll go chase after the stone.

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

And then he'll come back working out.

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

So the student says What should I do?

00:15:52--> 00:15:55

He said go to the shepherd, and asked him

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

to take control of his dog.

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

And if you do that, then that's it.

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

You'll be able to proceed.

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

And so in this is a lesson

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

for us today.

00:16:11--> 00:16:13

That although many of us are worried

00:16:15--> 00:16:17

about material means of protection

00:16:19--> 00:16:22

from disease and viruses, we have forgotten

00:16:23--> 00:16:27

that the ultimate protection lies with ALLAH SubhanA Horta

00:16:29--> 00:16:39

turning to him so hard on what to do, and if we want this pandemic to cease, and to come to an end, then you have to turn to Allah subhana wa Tada

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

in repentance,

00:16:43--> 00:16:59

and realizing our shortcoming in Allahu Allah, you will not be who you are humanity and to see him. Allah does not change the state of people, until the themselves change and turn to Allah Subhana Allah

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

We ask Allah subhana wa Tada

00:17:04--> 00:17:24

to protect us, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to cure those who are Ill ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to have mercy upon those who have passed away. Allow him to see me you know when we see that, what am I meaning what may not even notice me or even with the intellect along the divine warfare,

00:17:25--> 00:17:36

Allah mitzvah warfare I will Bella was Zilla with me when I was in theta and emails or Amin home about on

00:18:01--> 00:18:01


00:18:02--> 00:18:04

as it could. But is it cool
