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

My dear brothers and sisters, today is the first

00:00:32--> 00:00:42

Friday after Ramadan al Karim. So it is good for us to take stock of what we gained from Ramadan.

00:00:44--> 00:00:56

What were we supposed to gain? Allah subhanaw taala mentioned Ramadan al Karim and Allah subhanaw taala told us quotevalet como si Yamanaka makuti, Valentina mean company comme la la comida tahona hoon,

00:00:57--> 00:01:20

which means Allah said Oh, you will believe fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may become moroccon. So that you may become people who are conscious of Allah subhanaw taala. And who's single point of reference as far as any decision is concerned is does it please Allah,

00:01:21--> 00:02:09

a Moto G is one who moves his focus from what pleases me to what pleases Allah. And when I say move the focus it doesn't mean that the person denies his desire to fulfill what Allah likes, but that he aligns his desire, so that what he desires is what Allah likes. It is not that the natural movement has no desires, but that the desires of the Nasir motiva in the desires or the will or the or the mother of Halloween, this is the difference between nuff soul in and the other types of nuforce which is that in when we have national Amara or national

00:02:10--> 00:02:24

law, we are struggling against ourselves we are struggling against our desires but when we have not been with my inner we are not struggling not because we have no desires but because our desires are in alignment with what Allah subhanaw taala wants.

00:02:26--> 00:02:30

I'm looking there because obviously I'm hearing a very strange bird song.

00:02:31--> 00:02:40

My brothers and sisters, I remind myself when you that Allah subhanho wa Taala told us why he sent Ramadan.

00:02:41--> 00:02:46

I remind you and my cell phone The first thing I said on the first of

00:02:47--> 00:03:17

the first Juma in Ramadan and then I asked you a question and I was asking the question to myself which is that am I entering Ramadan? Or is Ramadan entering me? Because if I entered Ramadan and if you enter rather than then now we are out of Ramadan because we are in the month of Shabbat. But if Ramadan entered me and if Ramadan entered you, then the blessings and the gifts that Ramadan came with are still with us.

00:03:18--> 00:03:45

My brothers and sisters, Ramadan came to put into us, the Asmath and the glory and the majesty and the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala to fill our hearts with the glory and magnificence of Allah Subhana Allah Jalla Jalla wa monarto Luminato and thereby to remove the fear of anyone and anything else in the mahalo.

00:03:46--> 00:03:49

My brothers and sisters, today we are sitting in the middle of this COVID

00:03:51--> 00:04:06

pandemic, and many of us everywhere in the world. Even though we are Muslim, we are afraid we are afraid of getting the disease, we are afraid of contracting it, we are afraid of dying.

00:04:07--> 00:04:21

I remind myself when you have two things, one, the only way to build immunity from this is to get it and that is why vaccines are so important. The vaccine does not

00:04:22--> 00:04:26

protect you. But the vaccine exposes you to a

00:04:27--> 00:04:33

mild form of the disease which makes you immune to the disease if and when you encounter it.

00:04:34--> 00:04:54

The second thing is that our fear of death, we need to question ourselves and say that if I'm afraid of death, then what am I really saying? What am I really saying about my email? Because how can I be afraid of death which is inevitable? How can I be afraid of death which means that is the time I meet my rock gelato.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

What is the meaning of death in a car? It is to change your condition

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

Kalona is to move from one state of being into another state of being from the Alamo Shahada into the animal berserk.

00:05:09--> 00:05:17

What is there to fear, it is inevitable it is going to happen, there is no way of avoiding it, whether it is korona whether it is something else, it is inevitable.

00:05:19--> 00:06:02

So, what do we do? We take precautions to prevent the disease from harming us, not because we are afraid of death, because we are not afraid of death. But because this is the home of Allah subhanaw taala. Now, let me ask you, when I asked when I tell you take precautions, what do you think I'm saying? What comes to you top of the mind, you might say wear masks in public wear masks when you are in a inside a building or on public transport or wear a mask where there are other people also in the vicinity. And you might say wash your hands, frequently wash your hands 20 seconds at a time.

00:06:03--> 00:06:23

maintain that cleanliness. And the third thing you might say is maintain personal distance, social distance, whatever you want to call it, stay six feet away, stay two meters or more away from any other person, don't shake hands don't hug and so on and so forth. Right? You will say these three things. But remember, I am asking you as a Muslim.

00:06:24--> 00:06:39

There are two other things before these three things that you and I should have done. And what is that? It is those doors which Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam taught us and which is which are part of our daily morning and night ask us

00:06:40--> 00:06:45

what are the glass? Nebuchadnezzar said in the Hadith narrated by Abu huraira Delano.

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

He said if a person decides this door

00:06:49--> 00:07:01

will be Kelly Mattila he Tamati Misha Rima, our weekly Mattila de Martini Sherry McCullough I'll be kalavati la Mata Mishima.

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

Min Sheree mahalo

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

Isaac refuge in the perfect words of Allah subhanaw taala. from the evil of everything that is that that it is creation, what he created. Nebuchadnezzar said there is nothing on the face of the earth, including even a sting of a mosquito, which will harm that person.

00:07:24--> 00:07:29

And then the other door, which is also directed and it is in a Muslim by Mohammed,

00:07:30--> 00:07:34

which will rely on the room is being filled out of the wall after some I was

00:07:37--> 00:07:59

the one who decides this three times in the night. Allah will protect him from every harm throughout the night and who decides these three times during the day. In the morning, Allah will protect him from every ham during the day. Both of these are and should become part of our daily Oscar. Now my point is, if you are reading this voice, what is the state of your heart when you are reading?

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

I was just reading this last because you've been told to read this verse, or do they bring about a change in your heart? What is the change in your heart in my heart that must happen as a result of these drugs.

00:08:12--> 00:08:57

As a result of this law, our heart must enter a state of complete and total tranquility and peace. This is what I mean by saying drums on Enter me because if Ramadan entered me and if the glory and majesty of my rajala gelato has entered my heart, then when I say Bismillah he'll live the lie of the room is filled with sama Eva who was similarly How can any fear remain in my heart? And if I'm reciting this door and the fear retains and remains in my heart then before anything else, I need to check my own email. I need to check what is the state of my belief? What is the state of what I believe of what Allah subhanaw taala because believe me, death is inevitable. dying without demand

00:08:57--> 00:09:01

is not inevitable. Let us not lose our a man in the name of Quran.

00:09:02--> 00:09:39

So did Ramadan Enter We are not just is what is the state of your heart. If your heart is full of peace and tranquility use Alhamdulillah Allah holy hell, there is nothing which can harm me except what Allah has written for me and if Allah has written it for me, nobody can save me except Allah subhanaw taala and I say Alhamdulillah Allah, if Allah has written Corona for me, I will get Corona and I say Alhamdulillah Hara Bella Myra wants me This is what my Rob has given me this is a gift from Iraq gelato, I will dial Shahid inshallah hamdulillah if Allah has not written Corona for me, I cannot get Corona no matter what will I still take precautions Of course I will take precautions and

00:09:39--> 00:10:00

you should take precautions, I will wear a mask and I will maintain social distance and I will wash my hands. And I will before all of that I will make the noise in the morning and the night and my faith and my belief will be in the door not in the mosque not in the in the washing of the hand on and not in the social distance and talking about a state of Eamon in the

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

Heart, Allah subhanaw taala told you to take precautions as soon as I told you to take precautions he didn't say live in a state of fear.

00:10:07--> 00:10:49

Right? Did you say that they said live in a state of terror? No, he said take precautions and how should you live? complete and total peace and tranquility Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Allah Allah alameen Mayra Jalla Jalla who knows best what is best for me and what he gives for me is a gift from him Alhamdulillah I asked Allah subhanaw taala to protect all of you from COVID-19 and from all of the Bella and Baba and all of the Messiah of this dunya will ask you to ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep you in a state of total and complete yaqeen and he managed to take you in that state inshallah. My brothers and sisters, so Ramadan came with the gift of the obedience of Allah of the glory of

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

align our hearts of making us moutoku

00:10:52--> 00:10:55

Please remember I keep saying this all the time, which is

00:10:57--> 00:11:06

measurement is everything. I keep quoting Michael Harry of Six Sigma who said if you want to see what somebody values, see what they measure.

00:11:08--> 00:11:36

Let me ask you this. Therefore, what does he do? How do I measure my taqwa? I measure my taqwa by asking myself, do I indulge in brinkmanship? Will I walk on this on this thing here? Will I walk on this fence here? If I'm doing that, then I'm not because I'm indulging in that in that which is doubtful, whereas Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam told us leave that which is doubtful for that which is not doubtful.

00:11:39--> 00:12:23

And halaal obion Mahara mobian babina Houma Mousavi had, he said the halaal is clear. The Haram is clear. Between the two are the doubtful matters, he said leave that which is doubtful for that which is not this is the sign of the Mottaki. Am I doing that? is it happening to me? This is the question to ask myself. Am I protecting myself from that which is doubtful? Or am I still eating and drinking and earning in ways which are doubtful? If I'm doing that, then Ramadan did not enter me. I entered Ramadan and I exited from Ron, the beautiful gift that Allah subhanaw taala gave of Ramadan was squandered was wasted. I hope that didn't happen to any of us. My brothers and sisters, ask yourself

00:12:23--> 00:13:07

this question. in Ramadan, the gates of Jannah were opened the gates of jahannam were shut. But for whom? Whom were they open for? and whom were they shut for? Did the gates of Jannah open in Ramadan? For the one who was not praying who was not fasting? Who was not guarding his food or his income or his tongue? Or did the open for the one did the open for the one who had accepted a declaration of war from Allah subhanho wa Taala and is Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam by indulging in interest based finance. Did the gates have general open for such a person? Did the gate of Jannah open for a person who was dealing in interest who was drinking alcohol who

00:13:07--> 00:13:49

was oppressing people who was gambling? Who was being disobedient to his parents who was troubling and and who was eating up the the rights of his sisters. the inheritance of his sisters is strange thing a Muslim will fast and he will not allow a single drop of water to go below his throat because he doesn't want his fast to break but his fast does not break when he swallows the the How can the and the velocity and the inheritance of his sisters his vast does not break when you use up somebody else's property He's fast does not break when he lies and cheats and makes money on the basis of lying and cheating. In Allahu la Raja my brothers and sisters. Please understand, if

00:13:50--> 00:14:28

the gates of general open and northern for those who are obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala the gates of general did not open for those who are disobedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala no matter what, what else they may have done, my brothers and sisters and if you were obedient and if you are obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala then the gates of Jannah are open for you throughout the year. Please understand and reflect on this Rasul Allah Salallahu alaihe salam did not die in Ramadan. He did not die on later to Qatar. He did not dry die on a Juma he died in an hour on a Monday. What does Allah want to show us? Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to show us that the one who's connected to

00:14:28--> 00:14:59

to Allah subhanho wa Taala it doesn't matter where he dies, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter on which day he dies. It doesn't matter which month which date because the gates of Jannah are open for him always because he's connected to Allah subhanaw taala and that for a person who is obedient, Allah will forgive him and Allah will give him Jenna no matter when he dies. And this is the lesson we learn from the date of the passing away of Rasul Allah is Allah Salah, and for the person who is disobedient for the person who is rebellious, the person

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

No insists on disobeying Allah who insists on angering Allah subhanho wa Taala. Nothing can save him from the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala Ramadan or no Ramadan except if Allah chooses to forgive that person. The best example of that is we have the case of Abdullah. He may obey the leader of the monasticon when Abdullah obey was dying, he when he was dying, and he when he died, his son, Abdullah bin Abdullah Delano came to us with a solemn and said jasola Please give me give me your code. Give me your shirt. I want to bury my father in it. He knew who his father was. He knew what his father was doing had done, and he was trying to save his father. So he said, Please give me the

00:15:42--> 00:16:23

shirt. As soon as I saw him in his infinite mercy, he took off his shirt and he gave him Tell me what is more Baraka than the clot which touched the beautiful and the mobarak body of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that became the coven for Abdullah even obey the leader of the munafo of Medina. And then Abdullah bin Abdullah his son requested and said Yara sola, please come and do the Salah to janazah for my father rasulillah salam in his infinite mercy went there, over the Katara Delano came in front of him he blocked him and he said jasola Please do not make dua forgiveness for this man, because this man has caused so much harm to the Muslims he has caused so much harm to you, please do

00:16:23--> 00:16:26

not make dua for his forgiveness. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said,

00:16:27--> 00:17:01

No, he said Move aside, I will do for for this man. I will lead Salah jazza for this man. This was the this was the heart. This was the compassion. This was the kindness of mine Avi Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then the sooner the Salah mentored is entered the grave and he laid the body of Abdullah even a way to rest in the in the grave. Despite all of that, Allah subhanaw taala revealed Quran when all of this was over Allah subhanaw taala revealed Quran Allah subhanaw taala said his funeral home

00:17:02--> 00:17:09

funeral home in the villa home Submariner Mr. Ratan for laying yuck fear Allahu La

00:17:10--> 00:17:56

Liga be unknown Guevara Villa he was fully Bala Hola, del Carmen fossicking. Allah subhanaw taala said in the eyes of Toba whether you Mohamed Salah Holly values, I will sell them as forgiveness for them for these munafo and for these hypocrites for this man. Whether you ask forgiveness or you don't ask forgiveness, even if you ask forgiveness 70 times submarine Amara, Allah will not forgive them because they have disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger Bahama Sora Salaam and Allah does not guide those who are fast Cohn who are rebellious and disobedient, my brothers and sisters Please understand, it is our actions which will take us into Jannah. All the Baraka is if if the actions

00:17:56--> 00:18:35

are right, if the aqidah is right if my Eman is correct, if I believe only in Allah subhanho wa Taala if I believe Lana, Viva La la la la, there's no one who can harm there was no one who can benefit except Allah. And this belief must show in my actions, I cannot say La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la la. And then I'm my actions are showing that I feel everyone and everything in the world. No, my action must show that if I have the demand and I have the actions, then all the rest of the Baraka Alhamdulillah This is in my favor. But if I do not have that image, and if I do not have those actions, then the Baraka will not help me. This is what we learn from this. I want to

00:18:35--> 00:19:18

end with this. My brothers and sisters think about this COVID spoiled our eat celebration I agree with in quotes, spoiled I don't think it's quite I think we had a very nice eat, but I'm just saying that those who think that COVID spoiled your eat, ask yourself, What are you more conscious of that you couldn't celebrate eat as usual? Or that you do not have COVID think about that. My brothers and sisters. thankfulness is the fundamental goodness that helps to open our hearts to the love of Allah subhanaw taala. So let us thank Allah, let us thank Allah constantly for everything. Let us thank Allah, Allah has kept us safe. Alhamdulillah and we continue to ask Allah subhanaw taala for safety

00:19:18--> 00:19:34

for ourselves and for all the other human beings in the face of the earth. My brothers and sisters COVID taught us to protect ourselves from harm by shielding ourselves from the contagion which spreads through contagious people.

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

COVID taught us to shield ourselves to protect ourselves by shielding ourselves from contagious people and from the contagion that is spread by contagious people. That is what Ramadan came to teach us. It taught us to stay away from all negativity, to stay away from all negative people to stay away from all disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

My brothers and sisters I remind you of myself. Negative people are contagious. disobedient people are contagious, you will be harmed if you do not keep a distance from such people. So protect yourself. Guard all the input devices, our ears and eyes and mouth our input devices. Don't look at or listen to or eat or drink Haram. If in doubt, do what you have been told what you have been doing for COVID stay away until you make sure and if you are sure it is not haram by all means do it. And if you find that it is haram then stay away permanently. ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah Allah Allah to be pleased with you and never to be displeased. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to accept this drama

00:20:42--> 00:21:21

and to accept your though as in this drama, I remind you and myself to send lots and lots and lots of Euro then Salam on Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, especially today, I remind yourself remind you and myself to read to read, throttle calf, I remind you and myself to make a lot of law because Rasulullah Sallam said that there is a PSA. There is a time in this in this day, when Allah accepts whatever his slaves are sin, so we I asked the Lord to give you that moment and to give you the door which he wants to accept from you, and for you to make this door was Allah Allah Nabeel Karim Allah de wasabia. It might be Rama TKR hamara hamina hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam

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

aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
