Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala McSally Muhammad Rasul Allah is another holiday he wrote it, he was salam to Steven cathedra cathedra. Incidentally, this is one of the ways in which you begin your hub.

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

We begin with Bismillah.

00:00:18--> 00:00:23

Because this is our way, the way of the Muslim is begins everything with Bismillah with the name one last.

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

And then we glorify Allah subhanaw taala. So alhamdulillah

00:00:30--> 00:00:59

and then within salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam. So Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah. This is the minimum short form of that the longer form is what I did, right? So always remember this when we speak we speak as Muslims with confidence, not arrogance, with confidence to different things. And we begin with the name of Allah glorify Allah and we sent to Latin salam ala Rasulillah Salam, and then we say what we have to say,

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

farmable. So that is

00:01:03--> 00:01:10

the next step, and therefore unsafe for amabel Raja Sabha for Ahmedabad.

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

We are here to do

00:01:16--> 00:01:29

a kind of refresher and another opportunity for those of you who are in the last hotbar workshop, to practice your homework and to

00:01:31--> 00:01:37

get better at it. And inshallah we hope this will be of benefit to all of you, inshallah.

00:01:39--> 00:01:48

So, let me quickly I'm not doing the hotbar workshop itself, but since several of you are new faces here, let me quickly go over

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

the important parts of it. So

00:01:53--> 00:01:55

not have to rely on right.

00:01:57--> 00:02:35

First and foremost thing to remember about the hotbar is a hotbar is not just a speech. So this is a very important element. People get get carried away by the oh, this is a public speaking, training. No, it is, in a way yes to agree. But that's not the purpose. The khutbah is not just a speech, it's not public speaking. It's not for lecture, right? It is one of the most important of the era that one of the most important word acts of worship that a believer can possibly do. Allah subhanaw taala revealed the surah through the Juma and in the Surah. He mentioned the Salat of Juba

00:02:36--> 00:03:15

right where he is and who the hell is allottee me yo mille Jew it and then Allah told us what to do first our law degree law and he told us what not to do was obey the legal federal law have been condemned Allah when Allah subhanaw taala said, in on the day of Joomla, when the call for the salah of Joomla is done, meaning the other end for Joomla is done. Allah says run towards verse our Illa decree law that is walk not just you don't run towards first our ILA decree law towards the vicar of Allah what is the goal of Allah salah, which salah, your mudroom, I specifically

00:03:16--> 00:03:18

mean your mill Juma in the

00:03:20--> 00:03:24

first hour will Zillow run towards race towards

00:03:25--> 00:03:35

make effort towards this a lot of June. And then what not to do was roll by Allah's Leave your trade, leave your businesses.

00:03:37--> 00:03:40

And interestingly, the opposite in Russia, Allah subhanaw taala

00:03:41--> 00:04:02

did not say leave buying sha Allah said leave by selling because when you sell something you gain you get a profit, revenue you're buying you're spending money but when you're when you are selling, you're gaining something so Allah is saying leave that gain

00:04:03--> 00:04:29

and run towards the Zika Allah subhanaw taala and let's say that I don't lock him in Guantanamo. In this there is benefit for you or hire for your blessing for you. If only you understand. So, what is being said here, what is being said here is that even though you see benefit in sale and there is benefit in sale Allah Arambula Halal

00:04:30--> 00:04:55

to earn Halal risk, this is from one of the acts of acts of worship Hamdulillah we should we must always do that. But Allah is saying comparing that you remember there is no comparison between haram and jeevan Haram is haram. We are saying comparisons between Halal risk and blessing even with comparing with Halal risk the seller of Joomla takes precedence. This is better for you.

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

Right. So the hotbar of Joomla is a

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

Part of the salad salad of Joomla is different. It's not Dorsa law, even though it is done at the time, although it is not the salah for law. This is a different Salah altogether. So if you find yourself in a place where there is no masjid and you are alone, what will you pray? Lord are the one

00:05:19--> 00:05:23

who will present presume there's no drama you can you can just stand by yourself and I don't know.

00:05:24--> 00:05:38

But supposing you have maybe five, six people with you, then you have an option you can do drama, but you must search for if at all possible a masjid where Java is happening and go join that

00:05:40--> 00:05:55

Java congregation because the whole idea of Java is to be with the Java is to be with the congregation. So wherever is the congregation try to get there and do it there. Don't say no, it's more convenient here. We'll forget the matches, we just do it yeah, no, no, no.

00:05:56--> 00:06:22

The only time when you are allowed to look at the convenience is where for example, like we have a new mass you have a big congregation and there is physical difficulty to get to the mass because you don't have transportation and so on. So on, then there is a Jazza to say you can pray Juma in your own place, but you must make the effort to get to the mosque, if you can either your option was there. So if you can actually get to the mosque go to the mosque

00:06:23--> 00:06:29

that is of the that is much better than we do on your own, but if you have no other option

00:06:31--> 00:06:37

so that is one second thing is therefore this a lot of Joomla is different from the Serato

00:06:40--> 00:06:46

now, in many ways, not just one right? If you read the details of it in

00:06:48--> 00:06:57

masala Zalman Mara Jade, have his own line in his on his website, he says there are more than 20 differences between Saudi Juma and

00:06:58--> 00:07:16

the hustler. So I'm not listing all of that, don't worry about that. But the very clear physic I mean what is you know available or understandable to anybody in the Tsar Salah it is four out of four Salah together and it is there is no loud recitation in that Salam.

00:07:17--> 00:07:18


00:07:19--> 00:07:26

in Juma there are apparently on the face of it, if you look at it, at least three major differences which you can see number one,

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

the Salah is preceded by a hotbar.

00:07:33--> 00:07:40

Number two, the Salah is only two Raka and number three, there is loud recitation of the Quran in the Salah.

00:07:42--> 00:07:48

So three major differences which anybody can see and more, we don't need to go into that now.

00:07:51--> 00:07:55

So therefore, the hotbar is part of the Ibadah of Joomla.

00:07:57--> 00:08:18

It's not just a speech. Now that is the reason why the calm the hug from the orders, the etiquette, the manners of behaving in the hotbar are the same as behaving in Salah. Now many people don't understand this, but it's something to be spoken about and mentioned to people as well.

00:08:19--> 00:08:27

So for example, you will see the masjid people come they saunter in, they sit around, they pull out their phone, they're watching something doing something

00:08:28--> 00:08:31

talking to each other, somebody comes along who was a while ago,

00:08:32--> 00:08:35

right? We see all of this stuff and more happening

00:08:37--> 00:08:38

all of this

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

is not permissible It is haram.

00:08:44--> 00:09:09

It spoils your Salah, the Helgen for the hotbar is and the hotbar is when the Imam is on the member right in some massages in the hundreds of massages, you will find there is the Imam will do a lecture you will do a buyer before the other of Juma and then the other one is called and then the man goes on the member

00:09:10--> 00:09:20

and then he gives up so we're talking here about the whole we're not talking about the band before the whole band. Now that doesn't mean that in the band, you can chat you know, chat with each other now there is other to be maintained

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

in the masjid no matter what's happening.

00:09:25--> 00:09:32

So that's a different topic. We I won't go into that. But as far as the hotbar is concerned, the hotbar is what happens on the members. So now on the member

00:09:33--> 00:09:38

when the Imam goes there as a Musa li as a person who is listening to the hotbar

00:09:40--> 00:09:43

we are supposed to listen look at the man

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

listen carefully to what the hot buys don't worry about whether it sounds boring or whether the mom's accent is good or not or whether it's you know I don't none of that stuff. All of this week up like oh you know is tight is not good and it's not a great speaker it is but you didn't come into

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

an entertainment shock is not a you didn't go to a movie right? The mom is the mom. He's not the actor. He's not trying to please you. He's trying to give the message of Allah and he's also Salah.

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

So listen respectfully and look at the person number one. Number two, no unnecessary movement like in Salah

00:10:18--> 00:10:24

and do nothing except listen to the hub. You might say what about Zika? No Zika

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

What about reading Quran? No reading

00:10:29--> 00:10:33

what about and somebody says Allah Allah you don't reply if you're praying What do you do somebody is wrong

00:10:35--> 00:10:44

about himself you know what reply What about if I see somebody doing something they should not be doing should I correct them? No. Even that you're not supposed to do

00:10:46--> 00:10:58

after the Salah Yes Brother you're doing this thing that was wrong please don't do it but that's different but not at that time yet that even to correct somebody not permissible because it is like being in Salah.

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

Come enter the masjid pray Tura gotta hear the masjid

00:11:03--> 00:11:24

even if the whole buzz going on no problem pray to regatta hear the Masjid. Ideally, don't put yourself in that situation people ask this question. What should I do if there is a if the hotbar is going on? My point is why do you get to that situation the first place you are supposed to go for Salado Joomla in time that you have to work out you have time to pray to rock out of the budget and sit and listen to her but

00:11:26--> 00:11:44

don't put yourself in a position where you have to go around looking for too so that's a general rule which is which is a good rule to follow right? Sometimes somebody or an outsider or somebody's asked me if a non Muslim greets me and says salam alikoum Am I allowed to say while ago masala

00:11:45--> 00:11:48

so I said Why did you get into that situation in the first place? Why didn't you greet him first?

00:11:51--> 00:11:56

If you had if you had said to him hi or you said to him good morning that the issue would not be there. So why didn't you do that?

00:11:57--> 00:12:02

So you don't want to you don't have good manners. He has better manners the new that he's greeting you.

00:12:04--> 00:12:09

And now you put yourself into a tie yourself up in north sensation. Is it halal haram should I say while ago slavery.

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

So go in early,

00:12:14--> 00:12:18

great work out of theater budget, and then sit

00:12:19--> 00:12:25

and listen to the hotline. And then the habit is gone to stand up and you agree to rattle off

00:12:26--> 00:12:33

Forcella now after the Touriga Forcella in Joomla there is forgot of sunnah

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

and then there is another two regatta Osona

00:12:38--> 00:12:45

that you can play in the budget or you can go back home and pray and somewhere it doesn't matter but that is all part of the Joomla Asara so don't leave that

00:12:46--> 00:12:59

there is no sooner before the Fourth of July Joomla but there is forgot Asana after fursona plus another two so four plus two. Right so remember that do it now.

00:13:01--> 00:13:21

As a hadith all of you inshallah our potential holdup May Allah bless you. May Allah give you the words which will reach the hearts of people may Allah be pleased with you may Allah subhanaw taala save you from the biggest problem which is Rhea, which is showing off? biggest, biggest biggest problem. Ria is Schilke.

00:13:23--> 00:13:31

Right. So may Allah protect you from that mellows right and also protect you from fearing anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala himself

00:13:32--> 00:13:49

because this member by this I don't mean this particular member I'm saying the member of the masjid whichever member is the the pulpit is the place from where you give the hotbar it need not be you can stand on the ground. That's still the member because if you're giving the hope or wherever you're standing as a member

00:13:50--> 00:13:55

doesn't need to be a structure or something but mostly you will find it in massage different factors.

00:13:56--> 00:13:57

Remember one thing

00:13:58--> 00:14:01

who is the first Hatim of Islam?

00:14:03--> 00:14:05

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam correct.

00:14:06--> 00:14:11

So the member is the member of the Rasul Allah is Allah, it is not yours it is not mine.

00:14:13--> 00:14:19

So when I am standing there I am standing in the place of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:14:20--> 00:14:36

So the first thing I always tell people is when I'm talking about the hotbar is try as much as possible to first feel the awe and the majesty and the glory and the hive and the fear of standing in the position of Muhammad Sallallahu

00:14:37--> 00:14:47

This is not a normal thing. It is not an ordinary thing. It's a very, very, very, very special thing, which if Allah has given you then it comes with a huge responsibility.

00:14:49--> 00:14:52

Right like a major major responsibility

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

to give you an example and I'm this is a example is not related to the to the to the actual magic

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

To the thing but for example

00:15:03--> 00:15:05

you ask your friend to borrow a car

00:15:07--> 00:15:08

and your friend has got two cars he's got

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

order he started unite and he's got a Rolls Royce

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

and your friend says I love you take the Rolls Royce what would you say

00:15:23--> 00:15:40

is another another I just want a car I don't want this this is like a major problem for me I driving this thing around I you know, what? If one scratch Apple I'm dead. Right? So no way I don't want to just see these years. Give me the Rommel you're done. Okay with the bicycle.

00:15:43--> 00:16:08

That is how and as I told you, this doesn't even come close to describing the the eye and majesty of the member of the rasa or a salon. But just to give you an idea. It's not an ordinary speech is not to say oh, he's a nice lady. I have a lock. No, no, no, no, no, this is a very, very, very important a special place. Allah has honored you if you are there, Allah has honored you. But this is not a simple honor. This thing comes with a huge responsibility.

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

Now, having said that, you might start to wonder I don't want do it no,

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

you should do it

00:16:18--> 00:16:24

because Alhamdulillah to do it with that on that all and majesty Allah will help you

00:16:25--> 00:16:38

you should do it because we need good people to do so does everyone washes his hands yes or no no, this is too much I won't do it then who will do it then you will get some you know lousy guy who has no sense and you will trust that the results of not this No.

00:16:39--> 00:16:43

So, you must learn to handle all of your car here to learn. But,

00:16:44--> 00:16:50

so, the important thing now, if you have the eye and Majesty of Allah subhanaw taala and you are the member of the Rasul

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

two extremely important things, which is

00:16:55--> 00:16:59

that the Hatem himself is very important who you are

00:17:01--> 00:17:05

supersedes and is more important than what you are going to say.

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

By who you are, I mean your character.

00:17:10--> 00:17:31

Right. Your Own, your athletic your your manners, your taqwa in your heart, your connection to Allah subhanaw taala which only Allah knows. Your if last year your your insincerity of your near all of these things are far far more important than whatever message you're going to give.

00:17:33--> 00:17:43

And remember, the message is there is only when you are talking you are talking for whatever, you know half an hour or something. But who you are, is with you your whole life.

00:17:45--> 00:18:09

I can't be honorable when I'm standing there and then I go into some nonsense somewhere else. I'm in a party I'm doing some garbage. I behaving in a stupid way in on the street, or somebody is is crying you know? Maybe somebody irritates me then I sort of curse him and use foul language. No, no, no, no, no. We're happy remember, if you are assertive, you are assertive 24/7

00:18:10--> 00:18:24

You are a karate you are an imam in your house. You are an imam in the street. You are an imam in the shop you are remembered you're working everywhere. You are an imam you are a representative of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa he will

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

never never never forget that

00:18:29--> 00:18:36

because your character will come through right and people may say to you and they have a right to say to you how can you be like this you are an imam

00:18:37--> 00:18:44

now you might feel is very unfair what they're loving I'm also even No no no, no no you're not also the way you feel are you are a demon is not a title.

00:18:45--> 00:18:49

It is something which Allah has given her hamdulillah or or that.

00:18:50--> 00:18:56

Second thing is therefore also when you start with a member This is my role, but it is my role.

00:18:58--> 00:19:16

And it is not just my preference, but this comes from the Sunnah of Rasulullah salah, and the Sunnah of all the Sahaba of all the terrain of all the Allama of Islam of all the maps, which is that when they stood on the member, they dressed appropriately.

00:19:18--> 00:19:32

Now that doesn't mean you were you know, I'm not saying you have to wear sort of Brocade robes or something. Obviously you don't. But I'm saying dress in a way which is respectful and the wool number one thing there is the head must be covered.

00:19:34--> 00:19:48

Right now if you land up with a hard head uncovered, your Cobra is not invalid. It's not haram, but it is very inappropriate. Ideally wear a turban if you can't wear a double America, but cover your head.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

Always make sure that of that never stand and give a hotbar with your head uncovered. It's terrible. It's very disrespectful.

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

thing to do. And as I told you, the member, respect the member of Rasul Allah gave it to you don't don't disrespect it.

00:20:10--> 00:20:12

And then when you're giving the hotbar

00:20:14--> 00:20:18

a couple of things to be to keep in mind. Number one,

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

you're speaking for the benefit of everyone. So give a message, which is beneficial to everyone. And in that everyone include yourself always.

00:20:30--> 00:20:33

Because we are part of this be a part of the of the community, right.

00:20:34--> 00:20:43

So message beneficial to everyone number one, number two, a message which is uplifting, which is encouraging.

00:20:44--> 00:20:54

So even though part of the message you might say things which, like, for example, if you're, if, for example, if you are describing the the political situation today, the situation of the Muslims today,

00:20:56--> 00:21:03

you got some bad stuff to talk about. I mean, there is depressing stuff. But make sure that from that depressing stuff, you take them out of that, well.

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

Don't just dump them there and leave them there. That's not

00:21:08--> 00:21:18

that's not a good thing. Right? So bring them out from that. So plan your hotbar that's why the reason I'm saying all this is there's no such thing as a, you know, sort of extra bore,

00:21:19--> 00:21:28

on the fly kind of a backhoe? No, no, if you're going to give a fallback plan, it might practice lifelong. I like the hotbar

00:21:29--> 00:21:30

every football, right.

00:21:31--> 00:21:36

And every year I publish a book of 52 football which 52 weeks in a year. But right now the seventh book is

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

going to be published and the eighth book is ready.

00:21:41--> 00:21:48

Every goodbye right? Now, when you write the whole, but doesn't mean that you go there. And you have to now read out every word no.

00:21:49--> 00:22:11

But it's always always good writing is good one because at least I find this and I'm sure you guys will also find it. When you write it opens your mind, it helps you understand more and better and so on. So write the Hadera. And secondly, it's a it's a eight for you, you know, so in the middle of the hope assembling or forget something is there.

00:22:12--> 00:22:16

Always read, so prepare for the football. So message,

00:22:17--> 00:22:18

speak about

00:22:19--> 00:22:31

a situation but make sure the message is uplifting, and on a positive note, a note of hope don't dump them in the in the ditch and leave them there. That's one thing. Then the other thing is also

00:22:32--> 00:23:09

the hotbar is not the place to go into details of explanation of the Quran and of the year and all of that stuff. The hotbar is a message which is current, which helps the Muslims understand the situations that they are in. You're giving them some way of dealing with those situations. You are interpreting those situations in the light of the Quran and the Syrah the Sunnah. So they understand that right? And you're showing them a path leading to goodness. So that is the that must be the format. Now you might say well, you know what, what what

00:23:10--> 00:23:13

is a different topic? You don't do that in the joy

00:23:15--> 00:23:57

of zero Quran isn't different, we have our other halacha with a free no problem. Similarly, but in the hotbar itself, will you use Quran? Of course you will use Quran in that context, will you say an ayah? And will you explain the ayah of course you will do that. But that's not the purpose of the Hagia Sophia is not to explain the AI the AI is the aid in conveying your message. It is a delille for your message the eye is telling you is the support for your message. Right. So if I say to you that Allah subhanaw taala created us to benefit all of humanity because Allah subhanaw taala said quantum Cairo Mateen okra Lynas, Allah said you are the best of people and you have been extracted

00:23:57--> 00:24:20

and selected for the people Allah did not say, Oh, he just minuteness we have taken you from the people there, you know, for the people, therefore, we have been selected for the benefit of the people. So now I recited the ad for you I gave the explanation. But that's not the purpose. The purpose is the eyes reinforces my message that we have been sent for the benefit of the people.

00:24:22--> 00:24:32

Right. So remember, that message should be uplifting, it should be current, it should deal with people, helping people to see where they are, how they are, what they are, and so on and so forth. Right?

00:24:34--> 00:24:46

Never ever, even though in a heartbeat, you might have to point out some things which are of a critical nature, but never use the member the hotbar to attack anybody.

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

Right? So don't name people. Don't attack somebody even without naming but in an allegorical fashion in some roundabout way where people recognize who you're talking about. Never do that.

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

The hotbar is not a political platform. Even though you will talk about politics you will talk about current events. But it's not a political platform like for example, a politician giving a speech that's not you are not that you are far far far ahead or higher than that. Don't lower yourself to that level.

00:25:18--> 00:25:37

In some cases where you are for example, if you are giving a whole barrel masjid, you might have some issues with the with some people in the masjid, you might have some issues with the board of the masjid. And you might, you know, feel that well don't use the platform to settle those scores. That's not the that's not the purpose of the of the homework.

00:25:38--> 00:25:56

All of those, all of those issues that you may have are valid issues, deal with them separately, not from the football. Right? And throughout the football keep making history far keep asking Allah subhanaw taala to forgive you for any mistakes that you might make and we make mistakes, everybody makes mistakes.

00:25:58--> 00:26:12

So keep asking Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive for any mistakes which are made and ask Allah subhanaw taala to help you to convey His word in the way he wants it to be conveyed to his people

00:26:14--> 00:26:14

and be a part of that.

00:26:16--> 00:26:50

Alright, so inshallah we ask Allah subhanaw taala to help you to take the message of Islam in the most beautiful way through your words and through your actions and through the way you do deal with people you o'clock and manners all over the world manners rather than make you means of quiet and baraka for everyone who comes into contact with you inshallah. And may Allah subhanaw taala accept your doors. May Allah smiled Allah give you what you ask him and add to that from his generosity and Grace was Allah Allah Allah will carry while Ali he was happy maybe
