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

My dear brothers and sisters

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

when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

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. Fukuda.

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 ministry.

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 also Harborough, viola who and whom all built their houses, around domestic.

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

It became everything in the lives of the Sahaba

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

he was from the message that they learned their Deen

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

it was from the masjid that they spread their Deen

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

It was msgid 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 subhanahu wa tada

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

is that same meaning

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

exists in our lives today? 1400 years later?

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

What does MST 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, that 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

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

when the masjid was closed

00:04:45--> 00:04:46

and its doors were shut.

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

How did you feel

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

if you felt that state of grief

00:04:55--> 00:04:56

missing the state

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

Insha Allah who is 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--> 00:05:21

by the shade of a wasp Heron with Johanna on a day in which there will be no shade except his. And among the seven that he mentioned, one of Julian called

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

a man whose heart is attached to the messenger.

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

many

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

have felt that

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

the Rebbe went down, there he man went down.

00:05:51--> 00:05:56

Their relationship with a law went down, as a result 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--> 00:06:11

is that it belongs to us

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

and doesn't belong to any human being.

00:06:21--> 00:06:23

It's a structure it's a place

00:06:24--> 00:06:28

that was built for Allah alone and for nobody else.

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

And that's why in the Quran,

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala attributes the master 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

What an error message either Lila

00:06:58--> 00:07:04

and the massages belong to a lot. So do not worship Do not call upon anyone besides Him.

00:07:05--> 00:07:10

Cebu tin as you know wha hoo and to refer our youth to karate he has made

00:07:11--> 00:07:12

use of the hula hoop he has been

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

in houses

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

that Allah has permitted

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

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

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

00:08:12--> 00:08:21

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

one of

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

the only ones deserving of maintaining What does Allah say the masajid of Allah

00:08:39--> 00:08:44

or none. But those who believe in the law in the last day established there's a lot given there's a cat

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

and they don't fear anyone except on law.

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 domestic your home

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

my dear brothers and sisters,

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

as the lockdown 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--> 00:11:26

is in the hands of a loss of Hannah, who

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

controls this universe

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

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 of them.

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

And that he is not 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--> 00:12:17

alone.

00:12:18--> 00:12:19

Don't question Allah.

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

Allah is not to be question, but rather Worry about yourself, because you are the one who will be questioned by a lot 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 sallallahu alayhi wasallam 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 at 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 you were able to do so.

00:13:38--> 00:13:40

In these last several ones. 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's these are the things the extras in this dunya

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

that will that the extras 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 distinct from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

and sin

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

are a reason for having blessings taken away from us.

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

And that's the only way

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

to have blessings to remain with us is by turning to Allah subhana wa tada

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 are 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 make 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--> 00:15:45

And then he'll come back barking at you.

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

So the students said, so 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.

00:16:12--> 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 a loss of hand

00:16:29--> 00:16:30

turning to him

00:16:32--> 00:16:39

and if we want this pandemic to seize and to come to an end, then you have to turn to Allah subhana wa tada

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

in repentance,

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

and realizing our shortcomings in the law you

00:16:49--> 00:16:58

had ever used to see him a lot does not change the state of people until they themselves change and turn to us.

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

We ask Allah subhana wa tada

00:17:04--> 00:17:20

to protect us We ask Allah subhanaw taala to cure those who are ill. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to have mercy upon those who have passed away. allow him to fill in the CV you know when we see Matt, what do you mean what do you mean not even not even Nickerson even for even
