My dear brothers and sisters and elders, Alhamdulillah,

00:01:55 --> 00:01:56

Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah,

00:01:57 --> 00:01:58

as we are gathered here today

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

to listen to the Khutba of Eid ul

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

Adha,

00:02:03 --> 00:02:05

it would do us well to remind ourselves

00:02:06 --> 00:02:07

of the spirit of the sacrifice

00:02:08 --> 00:02:09

that we are about to make.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:11

Today,

00:02:11 --> 00:02:14

the best rebaat or the best form of

00:02:14 --> 00:02:16

worship that you can possibly do is the

00:02:16 --> 00:02:17

Udhiya, the Qurwani.

00:02:18 --> 00:02:20

There is nothing that pleases Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:02:20 --> 00:02:21

Ta'ala more

00:02:22 --> 00:02:22

on this day.

00:02:23 --> 00:02:23

Rasulullah

00:02:24 --> 00:02:26

said in the Sayyid hadith, in Tirmidi

00:02:27 --> 00:02:28

and ibn Imajah,

00:02:28 --> 00:02:29

the son of Adam

00:02:30 --> 00:02:32

does not do any action

00:02:32 --> 00:02:35

on the day of sacrifice which is more

00:02:35 --> 00:02:36

pleasing to Allah

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

than the sacrifice of animals.

00:02:40 --> 00:02:41

In another hadith in

00:02:41 --> 00:02:42

Musa Adi Muhammad

00:02:43 --> 00:02:45

and in Ibn Majah,

00:02:46 --> 00:02:47

Abu Warrilla

00:02:50 --> 00:02:51

narrated

00:02:51 --> 00:02:54

that Rasool Allah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, whoever

00:02:54 --> 00:02:56

can afford to offer a sacrifice

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

but does not do so, let him not

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

approach

00:03:01 --> 00:03:04

our place for prayer, the Iqbal.

00:03:05 --> 00:03:05

Alhamdulillah,

00:03:06 --> 00:03:07

if Allah

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

has given us

00:03:09 --> 00:03:09

the ability

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

to sacrifice,

00:03:12 --> 00:03:14

then this is something which is

00:03:14 --> 00:03:15

what you want us and we must do

00:03:15 --> 00:03:18

it. My brothers and sisters, I want to

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

remind myself and you that the

00:03:21 --> 00:03:24

meaning of being Muslim is to submit to

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

Allah

00:03:25 --> 00:03:26

without question,

00:03:27 --> 00:03:28

without argument,

00:03:28 --> 00:03:29

without reservation

00:03:30 --> 00:03:30

or hesitation,

00:03:31 --> 00:03:32

to submit joyfully

00:03:32 --> 00:03:33

and eagerly.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

That is the symbol of our trust in

00:03:36 --> 00:03:39

Him and that trust is what earns His

00:03:39 --> 00:03:40

pleasure and His help.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:43

That is why the iconic symbol of Islam

00:03:43 --> 00:03:44

is the sajdah,

00:03:45 --> 00:03:46

a state of total

00:03:46 --> 00:03:48

and complete submission

00:03:48 --> 00:03:51

and helplessness before Allah a

00:03:51 --> 00:03:53

symbol of total unhesitating

00:03:54 --> 00:03:54

obedience,

00:03:55 --> 00:03:58

a symbol of total trust and faith.

00:03:58 --> 00:03:59

The life of Ibrahim

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

is a symbol of all these things. The

00:04:02 --> 00:04:03

reward of tawakkur,

00:04:04 --> 00:04:04

reliance

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

and trust

00:04:06 --> 00:04:09

is the nusrat of Allah SWT, the help

00:04:09 --> 00:04:10

of Allah SWT

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

who is not subject to any of his

00:04:13 --> 00:04:14

laws.

00:04:14 --> 00:04:15

Remember,

00:04:15 --> 00:04:18

tawakul comes only and only from obedience.

00:04:19 --> 00:04:21

Tawakul is the gift that Allah

00:04:22 --> 00:04:24

gives to those who are obedient to Him,

00:04:24 --> 00:04:25

jalla jalaloo.

00:04:25 --> 00:04:28

We cannot live a life of disobedience

00:04:28 --> 00:04:31

and expect our hearts to be filled with

00:04:31 --> 00:04:33

the noor and sukoon of

00:04:59 --> 00:05:01

says, it is neither their meat nor their

00:05:01 --> 00:05:03

blood that reaches Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:05:03 --> 00:05:05

but it is taqwa

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

from you that reaches him. Thus, we have

00:05:08 --> 00:05:11

made them subject to you that you may

00:05:11 --> 00:05:14

magnify Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala for His guidance

00:05:14 --> 00:05:17

to you and give glad tidings, O Muhammad

00:05:19 --> 00:05:20

to the Muslim.

00:05:20 --> 00:05:21

Truly,

00:05:21 --> 00:05:22

Allah

00:05:23 --> 00:05:25

defends those who believe.

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

Verily, Allah does not like

00:05:29 --> 00:05:30

any treacherous

00:05:31 --> 00:05:31

ingrate

00:05:32 --> 00:05:33

and that is people who are

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

disobedient

00:05:36 --> 00:05:36

to Allah.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:40

The purpose of the Uddhiya, the Khurbani is

00:05:40 --> 00:05:43

to inculcate the spirit of submission of sacrificing

00:05:44 --> 00:05:47

our personal desires to win the pleasure of

00:05:47 --> 00:05:48

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:05:49 --> 00:05:51

and to become among those who Allah Subhanahu

00:05:51 --> 00:05:53

Wa Ta'ala called Al Mursinoon.

00:05:54 --> 00:05:55

Every act of worship

00:05:56 --> 00:05:57

has an essence

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

and a physical manifestation.

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

The manifestation, the physical manifestation of salah

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

is the qiyam and the ruku and the

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

sujood,

00:06:07 --> 00:06:09

but its essence is the khusho,

00:06:09 --> 00:06:12

the humility, the awe, the reverence, the concentration

00:06:14 --> 00:06:16

towards Allah Subh'anaHu Wa Ta'ala.

00:06:17 --> 00:06:19

The manifestation of fasting

00:06:19 --> 00:06:21

is to withhold ourselves

00:06:22 --> 00:06:22

from everything

00:06:23 --> 00:06:25

that breaks the fast from sunrise to sunset,

00:06:26 --> 00:06:28

but its essence is Taqwa.

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

The taqwa of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, the

00:06:31 --> 00:06:33

consciousness of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala in everything

00:06:33 --> 00:06:36

that we say and do. The manifestation of

00:06:36 --> 00:06:38

Hajj is Tawaf and Sahih

00:06:38 --> 00:06:41

and standing in Alafa and so on. But

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

its essence

00:06:42 --> 00:06:43

is honoring

00:06:43 --> 00:06:45

the symbols of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:06:46 --> 00:06:49

The manifestation of dua is the raising of

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

hands

00:06:50 --> 00:06:53

and the praise and the request but its

00:06:53 --> 00:06:54

essence is the brokenness

00:06:55 --> 00:06:58

and the need of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:06:59 --> 00:07:00

The manifestation

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

of zikr is saying, Allahu

00:07:03 --> 00:07:04

Akbar, Alhamdulillah,

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05

lailahaylallah,

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

subhanallah

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

and so on. But its essence

00:07:09 --> 00:07:12

is the remembrance, the actual reverence and the

00:07:12 --> 00:07:13

love of Allah

00:07:14 --> 00:07:17

in what we are saying when we say

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

the Quran.

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

For on the day of judgment, I remind

00:07:19 --> 00:07:22

myself anew that it is the hearts that

00:07:22 --> 00:07:23

will be exposed

00:07:23 --> 00:07:26

and only those who come with a heart

00:07:26 --> 00:07:29

that is repentant and submitted completely and totally

00:07:29 --> 00:07:30

to the will of Allah

00:07:31 --> 00:07:32

qalbun Saleem

00:07:33 --> 00:07:36

who will be saved. Let us therefore monitor

00:07:36 --> 00:07:39

our hearts as well as our speech

00:07:39 --> 00:07:40

and actions.

00:07:40 --> 00:07:42

My brothers and sisters, I would like to

00:07:42 --> 00:07:45

remind myself and you that the nusrah, the

00:07:45 --> 00:07:47

help of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala comes only

00:07:47 --> 00:07:49

to those who choose to be obedient to

00:07:49 --> 00:07:50

Him, Jallajiragu

00:07:52 --> 00:07:54

and Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala provides

00:07:54 --> 00:07:57

for them from sources that they could not

00:07:57 --> 00:08:00

imagine, but all that is only for the

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

muttaqoor,

00:08:01 --> 00:08:02

the obedient,

00:08:02 --> 00:08:03

not for the fasikood,

00:08:04 --> 00:08:05

not for the rebellious.

00:08:05 --> 00:08:06

Selective obedience

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

is disobedience.

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

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala said,

00:08:19 --> 00:08:20

O believers,

00:08:20 --> 00:08:22

enter into Islam wholeheartedly

00:08:23 --> 00:08:26

and do not follow the footsteps of Shayta.

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

Surely,

00:08:27 --> 00:08:29

He is your sworn enemy. Now, brothers and

00:08:29 --> 00:08:32

sisters, in the kind of world we live

00:08:32 --> 00:08:32

today

00:08:34 --> 00:08:37

to build a relationship with Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:08:37 --> 00:08:40

Ta'ala is increasingly more important. Since you can

00:08:40 --> 00:08:42

only give what you have, your responsibility

00:08:43 --> 00:08:44

is twofold.

00:08:44 --> 00:08:46

You need to build a relationship for yourself

00:08:47 --> 00:08:50

as well as to create an environment at

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

home

00:08:51 --> 00:08:51

where there is concern

00:08:52 --> 00:08:55

for Allah and this concern is voiced on

00:08:55 --> 00:08:57

and worked on. A concern for the pleasure

00:08:57 --> 00:08:58

of Allah Subhanahu

00:08:59 --> 00:08:59

Wa Ta'ala.

00:09:00 --> 00:09:03

Remember, you can only give what you have.

00:09:03 --> 00:09:05

Only a lighted lamp

00:09:05 --> 00:09:06

can light the lamp

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

of others and illuminate the world. Remember

00:09:12 --> 00:09:14

that when you and I are lying

00:09:15 --> 00:09:17

with our breath stuck in our throats,

00:09:19 --> 00:09:21

a time that will come upon every one

00:09:21 --> 00:09:24

of us, man or woman, It is only

00:09:24 --> 00:09:26

that connection with Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala which

00:09:26 --> 00:09:27

will help.

00:09:27 --> 00:09:30

All your money and friends and power and

00:09:30 --> 00:09:34

family and your politics and your, your willing

00:09:34 --> 00:09:37

and dealing will not be able to do

00:09:37 --> 00:09:40

anything to help you, even to breathe easily.

00:09:41 --> 00:09:43

They cannot make you live and they cannot

00:09:43 --> 00:09:45

even help you to die easily.

00:09:45 --> 00:09:47

Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala said this

00:09:48 --> 00:09:49

to us very clearly.

00:09:58 --> 00:10:01

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala said very, very clearly

00:10:02 --> 00:10:04

that when you are there with your breath

00:10:04 --> 00:10:06

stuck in your throat and they are standing

00:10:06 --> 00:10:09

there and watching you dying, Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:10:09 --> 00:10:11

Ta'ala said, they cannot do anything. We are

00:10:11 --> 00:10:14

there with you, but we are not visible

00:10:14 --> 00:10:16

to you or to them. So leave them

00:10:17 --> 00:10:19

and obedience, leave obedience to them

00:10:20 --> 00:10:20

and

00:10:21 --> 00:10:24

leave pleasing them by displeasing Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:10:24 --> 00:10:27

Ta'ala and cling to the obedience of Allah

00:10:27 --> 00:10:29

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala no matter who is displeased.

00:10:30 --> 00:10:33

Remember that the only one who is displeased

00:10:34 --> 00:10:36

with obedience to Allah

00:10:36 --> 00:10:37

is Shaytan

00:10:38 --> 00:10:40

who sometimes looks like a human being. Ignore

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

him and recall the example

00:10:42 --> 00:10:44

of the ambiya who we follow.

00:10:45 --> 00:10:46

I would like to wish you all a

00:10:46 --> 00:10:49

wonderful Eidur rasa and request you in the

00:10:49 --> 00:10:52

middle of your enjoyment of eating good food

00:10:52 --> 00:10:54

and meeting relatives and friends to spare a

00:10:54 --> 00:10:56

little time to remind

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

remind each other and remember

00:10:58 --> 00:11:01

the true spirit of sacrifice that was here.

00:11:02 --> 00:11:04

To remember and remind each other of Muslims

00:11:04 --> 00:11:06

in other parts of the world who don't

00:11:06 --> 00:11:07

have the means

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

or the safety

00:11:09 --> 00:11:12

to celebrate this Eid. Muslims in in the

00:11:12 --> 00:11:13

Gaza, especially

00:11:13 --> 00:11:17

Muslims in Sudan, Muslims in Yemen, Muslims are

00:11:17 --> 00:11:19

all over the play in the world where

00:11:19 --> 00:11:20

they are not able

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

to celebrate

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

this great,

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

age of ours in safety like you and

00:11:27 --> 00:11:29

I are doing here. I want to remind

00:11:29 --> 00:11:32

you that many such people also live right

00:11:32 --> 00:11:34

amongst us. Let us go and look for

00:11:34 --> 00:11:37

them and bring a smile to their faces

00:11:37 --> 00:11:40

and ensure that they have a good, full

00:11:40 --> 00:11:43

meal today and that their children wear good

00:11:43 --> 00:11:44

clothes. May Allah

00:11:45 --> 00:11:46

be pleased with you and accept your worship.

00:11:46 --> 00:11:47

Eid Mubarak to all of you. Accept your

00:11:47 --> 00:11:48

worship. Eid Mubarak

00:11:49 --> 00:11:50

to all of you.
