brothers and sisters in Islam
there is the signs in Islam, which is so
If you have a grip
of it, the higher aims behind the commands.
You see one of the names of Allah subhana wa Taala the old wise
we mean Allah doesn't legislate something for you a need to do for no purpose.
There must be a purpose behind it.
It must impact you. It must better you as a person.
This is what they call al mocassin the aims and the objectives behind the commands of Allah subhanahu wa tada
and just for you to learn the significance of this.
One of the evidence is used to the date with an atheist,
an atheist, someone who denies the existence of Allah subhanho wa Taala is actually this how someone his life is messed up.
he's doing drugs.
He is having issues in his house family issues all type
give him six months only give him six months. Just follow Islam
pay five times a day
fast first Ramadan
and you will see the change within six months how this person will transform from insignificant individual actually harmful agents on humanity to add beneficial
and this is one of the things Omar will have probably have your loved one live
60 some years 62 I believe if I'm not mistaken,
half of it
in ignorance in know Islam,
the other half in Islam.
I can sum up his life in Islam
in two lines.
I need volumes to talk about him after Islam.
Why because of this guidance Allah booth
with it in the Taj Mahal de la hit
a rock man
hmm. Allah Collins in
the Most Merciful.
He designed the curriculum first before He created you.
Wow, that that's the mind the power that you design. You see when when Honda Allah Allah Allah to design a car, they produce the manual afterwards, don't they?
And they still do recalls.
Because there was a defect
with Allah subhana wa tada there is no defect in the creation itself. Also, the manual was meant to maintain the creation of the two races, Adam and Jim, because the rest are in good shape.
Look at the sun, look at the moon. Look, we calculate the sunrise with the second why no interference.
No choices need. The sun is in a state of submission was one of the evidences that we use. When we talk to an atheist, to establish that there is a God that this God created and he knows what the creation needs.
How this creation should function. And this is again in that window of El mocassin. The purposes the aims and the objectives of this knowledge of this of the religion of Islam.
Know the scholars, they differ regarding acts of worship.
They said recent acts of worship will also be a taboo.
You don't have to know why you should pray for you to pray.
You see, acts of worship is a little bit different because Allah Jolla to mean he taboola the main aim of the higher aim of the acts of worship I'm talking about Salah zakka fasting had
rosewood has an idea. The higher aim is to worship Allah subhanaw taala even if you don't understand sometimes, and they use always the statement which Lima Evita would combine the sunon of
11 when he said Listen, if the religion if worshiping Allah was based on opinions lokeren a deal. He Lacan and master Allah s fell ill Fany Allah, Linda hurry
that when you wipe,
you know when you were a little sock to you could why, instead of taking it off with you why you are
on the top here, you don't want even the bottom.
Farley is saying if the matter has to do with the opinion, it makes more sense to wybrane
but not everything you have to understand.
Once it comes to acts of worship,
what tocom law where you are living kouvola
have Taqwa meaning exercise the act and Allah will teach you the wisdom behind it. But don't wait until you understand why. In order to do it.
Some Han Allah is still go for hikes. And every time you learn something else, something that you never thought of, he sees something different. You just keep doing it. So the more you do the act with sincerity, the move, you will find more purpose that this act should impact you.
I came to talk about the higher aims of HUD just returning from HUD quite frankly arrived two o'clock in the morning and alarm Stan ask Allah to guide me on a tool to benefit you today.
But let me just talk about the higher aims of acts of worship in general because there are shade is
one of the greatest
things that impact an individual
which impact a community is since
Yeah, it was since one of the worst thing about them, at least the distance you away from Allah
when you engage in sins, and that sin could be between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala or inflicting harm upon another person.
You name it. So I will cover one of the main aims. One of them basic ease of acts of worship in Islam
is to take care of that.
Look, how do you feel Salah imagine Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam given you
a metaphor when he said, Imagine you have in front of your house a river
every single day, you jumped in that river and Dave five times.
Then he asked you how we up car Min dharani here's
the thing, any dirt will be left on that buddy. Five that five times meeting.
Thus, the seller does this deal.
When you pray five times a day, this is what the Salah does to you.
You come out of the cities
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he had
a son our two humps the five daily prayers will do more to rely on Joomla and from jomar to Joomla kuffaar the expeed the sins committed between them but provided you take care of the major sins Also, be careful, these sins are not about the rights of other people.
You see you can play as long as you want. But if you have caused someone harm Muslim or non Muslim,
Muslim or non Muslim you have to take care of that.
You have to take care of that.
You see Allah will forgive the sins between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala the power between you and Allah, but once it comes to others for you, look at this.
Look at this occur.
This area for subrata Toba this verse in Surah Toba and look at the context of this verse one una de de uno de him Kala Alonso de Hanwha
Asa La Jolla to baja de, in a chapter one of the LA the latest chapters revealed in the Quran, called the Toba Baba Subhan. Allah in this chapter, Allah subhana wa Taala categorize the Muslim community to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said one of the things that he said to the prophets of Allah, and in your community, the community of us have
some who do good deeds and bad deeds.
Do you do Boo.
Boo Boo Boo him holla to him and I'm sorry.
How can they treat this whole
saga sadhaka. Takahiro whom what was a key him beha was a lolly?
How can they take care of the sins? Ask them to pay the cat to give charity.
Ask those to give charity. The charity is zeca whether it is the mandatory or the optional, the voluntary takes care of the sins. So that's again, these are shaped higher aims in the acts of worship that is supposed to cleanse the individuals from the sins and cleanse the society from the sins because a community or an individual who sins will suffer will not have a good lifestyle whatsoever for you. Look at fasting
look will Hadith
Ramadan to the next Ramadan they exclude the sins wakandan Devi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam man sama Ravana a man and rocky seven who fear Allah who man camara Madonna a man and rocky seven
men calm and a little cadre man
however past Ramadan all the sins of what?
Look at hi
Carla Salam Lavalle he was held and
this is this is particular to Hodge.
This is particular milho so Seattle had
I asked a loss of Hannah with I'll have to send you all brothers and sisters in Islam to hide and please if you have not made had
If you have not done the please make an intention will law he it's all about the intention. The means a lot bring it to you just intend that you want to do it next year Be it Mila tada Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam man hija Fela Mira while me
Raja I mean coup de comunidad.
Whoever performs had
fulfilling the conditions, staying away from the unlawful things, he will come back like a newborn. A new start.
That again, the higher aims of the acts of worship in Islam was meant to cleanse you to cleave you off as you were hornady sallallahu alayhi wa sallam faema Raja Alina Mashallah, when
they do they have given O'Meara Kiba with hygiene, ombre follow hybridoma almost has always, always, always keep up with it as much as you can. Why? Fair enough.
And it just came to my mind because of the subject, of course, because once it comes to how much you have to spend 678 910, sometimes 11, sometimes $10,000, especially if you go with your spouse is quite costly. Imagine the Prophet sallallahu wasallam saying what happened, we'll help you get rid of cells and poverty.
sins and what
bhavati you see those two being paired together in the Hadith, that means there is a relevance.
There is a relevance, one of the causes of poverty sins. And when you get rid of the sins, poverty is removed, and Rich's hopefully, is instilled.
This is one of the purposes, the higher aims of the acts of worship in Islam in general, look at another one.
And one Liaquat Hodges is very special once it comes to this. Because imagine, especially if you go with a group
that you don't know the individuals, like myself, I normally go with a national group, from all walks of life. So some guy from Florida, some guy from Los Angeles, some guy from Seattle, some guys, all walks of life 300 people together.
And Subhanallah everybody has his own style.
Everybody has his own style, someone is harsh, you know, someone is soft.
And you now have to stay with these individuals for five days in attempt. travel together in attempt, not in a hotel. I'm talking about the five days of hygiene attend. And now imagine the patience that you have
the patience that you have. Why? Because one of the conditions for an accepted hedgewitch will give you that birth certificate which I talked about a minute ago, like a newborn femen forever fee hidden and had j fella alpha one alpha super legit elephant had something about had you're not supposed to argue.
Even if you have a point, even if you're right.
Imagine this, like fasty somebody slaps you hear what they say in Christianity give me
give the other one. Don't Don't try to bake. Don't
imagine the amount of character that you must have the one that comes to patience. And you're talking about three, four. Sometimes I really see it 5 million people in one place. how crowded This is. And some people by the way, they come from these, you know these spacious homes. You know, you notice the heavier guys went to Colorado Springs there is a place there with the houses of the old place in Denver, this is huge houses there. And then that person has to stay with what
it's it's very interesting. It really gets to you how much you can be. And that is the significance of character in Islam having a character having patience. Why? Because you know
if you mess up your heart, your heart
If you're gonna argue, likewise the salon, look at the salon
in a solid 10 mil fashion
one of the higher aims of salon
to help you with the character. One of the most fascinating things about Salah It teaches you humility and humbleness. Look the closest position a Muslim during his Salah to Allah is when he places his forehead in the ground.
humility, humbleness, quality.
In the same line there is a Muslim there is a doctor there is
it doesn't matter what is your rank outside that your equal?
Look at sia zeca is one of the things that deca catering for the pool
and it treats you from stinginess and treats the pool from envying you that you have money.
It's about character, look at fasting for either can do more. So if you're fasting, fellow, one, if so, let him have a good character. Even if somebody causes you somebody fights you say I'm fasting,
again, is about characters. So the higher aims of these acts of worship brothers in Islam. beside it cleanses you from the sins. It also helps you develop a good character, develop patience, develop compassion, develop theory for the others, in many ways. One of the most also obvious aims of the acts of worship in Islam is the concept of community.
and it shows you that
you know, the Muslims are singing in one area.
And the matter is another area.
You know how many times you hear Muslims talking about unity, we want to be united. We want to be together. Listen,
together, this is a harvest
is not something that you do
is something that you harvest because of doing something
as long as you worship a mosque together
according to the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam and killing you these hearts will be put together
at the end of the trip, while more he those people that at the very beginning you started question. You started questioning started. You don't want to leave them. You want to stay with them and
you didn't want to leave them
when the hearts are united on the head on the worship of Allah subhana wa Tada.
brotherhood. sisterhood will happen. And Subhanallah because I saw this multiple times. When I get a brother and a sister who are at the verge of divorce.
spouses Yeah, they're about to divorce. One of the advisors can you afford the camera? Please? Mr. Beckett? Can you take it away from just take it away from I'm not saying
go together from
what lies 99% when they return, they never called me back.
I know what happened for us.
is harvest of worshipping Allah, of monotheism and following one way to worship Allah subhanaw taala you don't make your way to make my way.
And this is what you see in hajj. You see me to understand something unique about her that no other act of worship has
had his tie to a place and a time
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did it one time, not two times. One time. You see why why do you sometimes see some Muslims when they come back for more he does like this. And he does like this because the Prophet did both and both of them are correct.
had one time the prophets of Salaam was copied one time only one time
That copy is placed in a book that is kept. Now for you to perform and accepted help, you must follow that manuscript and that is why you find every Hadji who cares about the validity of his copies. And that is why there is unity.
You see other rituals do shift finance it this book, I'm Hannah America, but this Imam said that but this year, there is there is you could find it in the books, but very rare, in hajj, you find the difference will be
very rich. accept certain issues you wish they had em satisfactory, but that is why had is considered to be the international conference for this Muslim brothers and sisters in Islam. One of the greatest things about her and I tell you this personally,
this religion will not die
And this is why when,
when you read how do
you understand why the Antichrist
the Antichrist would want to enter to those two cities. Why?
For that reason,
they occur some of you some of the people may not know this, now that we believe that right before the outs there's antichrist who will come down and he's gonna try to
kill Muslims and basically get rid of Islam. And then he said, Okay, I'm gonna go to my camera. That's it is not working McHenry.
And then when he gets near the angels have no no entry. But by the way, I don't want to say that everybody there is good.
We'll do that. Allah subhanho wa Taala will cause Mecca and Medina when the Antichrist is there, to has an earth to have an earthquake, Earth will shake. And all the hypocrites inside those two cities will go out to the Antichrist will be hunted by him. So there are hypocrites living in
Ghana Don't misunderstand me I'm not saying that there are angels there. No, I mean, but what I am saying is somehow that religion will stay the same. It will not die.
And it will be always a source imagined for millions million Muslims Muslims from all over the world. from Africa to Costa
Rica Pakistan and you go to Australia you go to here you go to America they go and take from that fountain
how many of us wouldn't have had years three four, I can see 234 and 1234 in each city.
They bring back again refreshment the fresh if they really got
the purpose of
the aims of such a cool holy hell that was the Florida
hola handle huson was Santa with me?
Why shadow Allah, Allah illallah wa sallahu la serie Kala yaku will have the surreal watch Mohammedan Abu rasuluh sulla la vie salovaara Lee
brothers and sisters in Islam.
One of the higher aims of high
is the concept of happiness.
It seems like in the material world, we're getting it wrong.
You know about being happy.
You know, the happiest, most joyful
days Knights have had is the night when you sleep in the ground.
You know if you're familiar with the rituals of Hutch, basically on the eighth, you wear that garment which is very similar to the garments they clothed you with before they value the shroud that to white
and then you will refer
the first day you spend the night in minutes.
It is a lot of work and then you
and then you finish out of an after sunset, you traveled to Lewes Delaware. Now when it was delivered, you're supposed to sleep on the ground.
And earth when those two things. One more here, if
you're sleeping in the ground and looking up, do you feel like you're the king of the world, you own the world.
And look what you're wearing.
Your clothes by now is dirty. And I mean by dirty, there is no impurities on them. But dirty in the sense of there is dust. You're dirty, you're been sweating, especially in Saudi Arabia, the the,
the the country is extremely hot. you sweat all the time. You sweat all the time. And you're sitting out there and that's happiness. That's happiness brothers and sisters in Islam. And you hear me saying this over and over. Because it's a reality. It's a fact. You know, we we can bring happiness to America. We live in a very depressed society. You know, even a lot of Muslims are affected by that. And I'm sorry to say this again. And there is nothing wrong with taking anti depressant medication if you need it. I'm not, I'm not letting you down, you know, but the highest show medication in America is antidepressants. We live in a very depressed society. Why? Because people
are just keen on fulfilling the material aspect of their lives. But they didn't know about the spiritual. And somehow in America,
somehow in America, they turn that religion into a taboo thing, you can talk about religions, you know, when you go into a gathering, and oh, that's a personal thing, is you can talk about everything else except God. If you talk about God, then
that that's the way it's designed. And
we gotta as Muslims, we gotta break through this because that formula is in Islam, that spiritual
you see a lot of body and a soul, body and a soul. life begins when an angel comes to breathe, the soul into that flesh and body ends, when the soul is extracted.
Now in between, you have to nourish both. You have to provide food for both. Yes, you do very well. Olive Garden, Red Lobster, all kind of nice food here. But what happened to the soul?
The soul nourishment is what brings happiness. Yes, you have to take care of your body. But this is what Christ teaches you brothers and sisters in Islam, in regardless of how much you have, as long as you're fulfilling that spiritual side in your life, you will always find the Xi of happiness in this life, regardless of how difficult it is, and this is the essence of a statement of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he said, les Selena and careful Atilla Lara
kinal Rena Renan knifes, riches is not about to have is not about having a lot is about being happy with what you have. Being content with what you own. That's what riches are you happy with who you are with what you have Alhamdulillah
that is what is meant by brothers and sisters in Islam. Finally, I don't want to prolong this
sacrifice. Keep going.
Keep going. You see when Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to build his house, in Mecca.
in Mecca, he wanted to build his house. So Pinilla he needed the construction of his house around the sacrifice of a family.
The whole construction of the house is about the sacrifice of a family. And then who faced his community because they were worshipping associates in association with Allah they were worshipping idols Ibrahim Ali Salah they thrown him in Hill
and fire me
walking in fire.
Imagine for La ilaha illallah
wa salatu wa sallam tells you brothers and sisters in Islam
Time will come. When the person who's holding to with his faith is a man
is going to be holding fire in his hand like this.
sacrifice, sacrifice for the hereafter
for the hereafter.
Look, his family he was living in in Jerusalem. He was marrying with Sarah.
He wanted a child. Allah sent him to Egypt.
He ends up bringing back hogger
his wife tells him listen, I'm barren and you want a child.
You know, why didn't you marry my knee? Go into my knees and have the child you want? Ishmael was given a smile at a salon was given. Okay, take a smile to
take him to mark.
And did he imagine a command from Allah?
Take your wife and your baby infant with little dates and then
Come back sacrifice This
is all about sacrifice. You're gonna keep going brothers and sisters in Islam as long as you're alive, your tests still on. You just keep going in sha Allah.
