So, I think we are missing, but whoever's here

00:08:21--> 00:08:22

send me if I was

00:08:32--> 00:08:36

you know, my, I think the entire community's prayer is with these brothers.

00:08:38--> 00:09:19

Since I have the opportunity to serve the previous term, I could tell you that the amount of effort in the time that they have put in to sustain and the thing that they have done it, that we may not have seen it, I mean, 100 Allah, may Allah reward you, your family, especially Judah's high that mashallah your contribution to this community. And you know, and your family, may Allah protect them, may Allah protect all of you and your families and give the baraka in you for your services and may Allah some other asset from you, I mean, Hamdulillah that all the services that we had, you have gone above and beyond them in all the committees if I find name it, I hope I get all of them

00:09:19--> 00:09:34

here. Like for example, we had education outreach children committee that Jeanette they have introduced in this term, mashallah fundraising, operations accounting. Accounting is not based not here, but we hear that there's a lot of

00:09:35--> 00:09:52

new processes and automation that came into our accounting mashallah social services have the schools and the school neither a school, a senior Committee, which was also introduced in your resume was the liaison for sports committee. Facility it construction. Did I miss anything?

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

Marsha, that's enough. So, Marketing Committee, Marcia, the Marketing Committee, chillin. I mentioned children's committee, so

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

You could see that you know, there are many names and these are the few brothers who were who were managing it. That's where we need your help for us and I'm sure that you have provided the help to these brothers as well. So exactly the prayer for your services may Allah reward you There's nothing that we can we can you know, you're in our door and inshallah we'll do the transitions and we'll take the things from you and Charlotte are

00:10:26--> 00:11:00

among many things, that from this board, it's something that we at least you know, it's not very apparent is is the multipurpose hall and the gymnasium that we built and pretty much it's almost incompletion I believe, in a few months, inshallah Tada and there's some shortcoming there's some some money shortage, inshallah we'll we'll we'll get to it. But there's something we don't see it. This would be a state of the art to gymnasium 100 of the construction committee, there's dedicated brothers team that have been working with Abdullah Shiga who is our liaison for construction

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

my requests

00:11:03--> 00:11:20

to the construction committee and whether a doula I should have taken permission but the request is that you should continue and your team should continue so that we have a harmony and the continuation of the project we are a few months away from completing it inshallah Donna, so I hope that that will be hard but

00:11:29--> 00:11:52

we plan to look into the needs of our youth very very closely and inshallah we'll provide all the tools to help them become the best Muslim and Muslim ah for society will ensure inshallah they will learn the beautiful deen and teaching of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in a way that they can absorb and apply even living in this 21st century in sha Allah Tala.

00:11:54--> 00:12:05

As we mentioned it will continue with all the projects and is designed to complete and will take the handover of all the project from the current board board six inshallah. I think there'll be a process it's going to go for few months and

00:12:07--> 00:12:21

the day to day affairs and all scheduled programs on inshallah continue without any disruptions. But we are always open to ideas, to minimize duplication and maximize the benefit to our community with all the programs that we have.

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

There was something that we are thinking and Charlotte that I would plan to introduce a structured hierarchy of our sisters participation at Epic, so that the community can benefit the most we have a huge spectrum of diverse sisters, leaders and teachers that will bring more autonomy and structure

00:12:41--> 00:12:51

so that they can work in direct vision of the board. We will assure that their voices are heard and we will try to accommodate all their needs. That will promote Quran and Sunnah inshallah.

00:12:53--> 00:13:33

Inshallah will very soon will have volunteered Dr. Which you all can sign because I see the lot of new faces a lot of new people have moved here in last few years. So, we will have a volunteer address where we can sign up for the volunteer to different committees and we'll announce more committees and the liaisons in the leads Inshallah, as we move forward. We always strive to do the best and the things that are pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala and based on Quran and Sunnah I asked us my daughter to help us you know, go through these tests with flying colors with your daughters and unite us and be pleased with our services and accept from us I mean, it's not when it comes to

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

Allah Who ricotta.

00:13:45--> 00:14:13

Lot, Smithtown, 100 in Laos, salatu salam ala Rasulillah Loma Linda main founder and finally my lamp Anna, was it not in money? I mean, that's how Allah subhanaw taala teachers would benefit us benefit from what you told us and increase us in knowledge. Ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless this gathering in sha Allah and make us from the people at the end of the gathering. They will be taught como Mfold I'm looking, I mean your gallery type. We are still talking about the sickness. And

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


00:14:16--> 00:14:31

the chef May Allah subhanaw taala give him she felt by the way, the chef is very sick. The author of this book is in he used to live in Medina and now he moved to San Francisco because of his health. So may Allah give him she found Charla I mean horrible enemy.

00:14:32--> 00:14:42

Ship How much did you bury? Yeah, make it keep giving me a die on Shan Shan Ji Valley is our Brother Xiao Jia mode, his in laws

00:14:44--> 00:14:47

so on Hamdulillah he knows keep us updated about him channel

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

time. So he moved down to the chapter two which is trials for the believers, the trials for the believers. And he said that our life is a

00:15:01--> 00:15:32

We are created to be tested, we are created to be tested. So some people are tested by their health. Some people are tested by their wealth. Some people are tested by the children. Job Allah like everybody's definitely going to be tested. Our brothers are being tested with fear, insecurity. Everybody is going to be tested somehow wearing a blue one icon beside him they'll have majeure on oxygen. Well, unfortunately, not everybody will be tested somehow. So as I said, the example of the son of Adam is

00:15:35--> 00:15:54

he has 99 causes of death. He has 99 causes of death besides Him, if all causes of death miss him, he will fall into old age until he dies nifedipine Adam while I run betas on with Asana many here in Stockholm Anya Walker

00:15:57--> 00:16:09

at the end of the day, we all going to die, no matter who you are, no matter how strong how wealthy, you are, we are all going to die we all agree that even non Muslims agree on that that we all going to die one day. Now.

00:16:12--> 00:16:24

As a believer believers position towards this is extremely important I will discuss this only inshallah because of the time and then we could go home Sharma what is the position of the believer when he is afflicted by a calamity?

00:16:25--> 00:17:09

For a believer afflictions are instances. They are remembrance and they are tests that promise great rewards, and are indications of atonement and explanations of sins. Rasulillah Salam, Hadith very beautiful Subhanallah we all know, Azure than the Emeril Bachman Azure than the unreal movement in the camera who couldn't who would accidentally carry a little movement in our server to server server on chakra for calahonda. When I saw that, who the server again, hey, Ron law, indeed, amazing is that affair of the believer, and this only

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

to the believer of Amazon, Amazon won't mean in your blood. If something good happens to him, he is grateful.

00:17:19--> 00:17:44

And he will be rewarded for that. And if something bad happens to him, he's patient and he will be rewarded for that. And this is only for the believer. So all his affairs, whether it's good or bad, he's always accepting the color of Allah azza wa jal and always either grateful Yeah, he's living between Sabra and Shaka the believer is living between suburbs and in Chicago.

00:17:45--> 00:17:46


00:17:50--> 00:17:52

the suburb is

00:17:53--> 00:17:56

of different stages. Right?

00:17:58--> 00:18:23

When a person is struck by he should display patience, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada said, it is sobbing and Latina either Asaba Tomas Eva immediately Carlu in alila were in LA Rajang Hola, Erica la sala, Nairobi whare what will the ICA Hamamoto so he said, give the glad tidings to the patient ones I know.

00:18:25--> 00:18:27

Give the glad tidings to the patient ones. And

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

when they are hit by a calamity, they immediately say we to Allah and to Allah we shall return.

00:18:50--> 00:18:54

Then the chef mentioned the hadith of apoB nebula

00:18:57--> 00:18:59

he reported that I'm not best so the Alon said.

00:19:01--> 00:19:03

He told him Do you want a woman from Jana?

00:19:04--> 00:19:09

Do you want to see of Jana? Yes. See these

00:19:10--> 00:19:24

black into the Prophet when he was alive, saying Allah, I have seizures and exposed. So we are a soul of Allah. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to cure me.

00:19:26--> 00:19:38

As you said in Shi t subharti. We're in. We're in Shi T TAO to Allah and Viki said he gave her two options either

00:19:39--> 00:19:47

you will be paid and you will be granted Jana or if you wish, I can ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to kill you.

00:19:50--> 00:19:52

Luck, you know what?

00:19:53--> 00:19:54

What would you choose?

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

Keep in mind, years

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

You know what happens seizures? You lose all of yourself and does not look good at all. We have Dr. Rossi here, right? How, what are the reason for seizures? How long does it take for a seizure? Usually a minute to depends. It could go five minutes, it could go five minutes.

00:20:22--> 00:20:37

And he somebody's shaking, somebody is losing control for five minutes Allahu Akbar. So forming coming out form coming out of the mouth. And she is Subhan Allah one, even though she's going through all that she is worried that she will be uncovered.

00:20:39--> 00:20:54

And like I mentioned in Ramadan, one day, we have sisters that are completely sane, and they leave the house uncovered. Completely saying no seizures, no nothing. And they leave the house uncovered. And she's so worried why she's getting seizure. She's getting uncovered. So you had a soul Allah.

00:20:55--> 00:21:03

Make dua for me. He said, either I make dua for you, you will be killed in sha Allah, or you'll be patient and Yaga Jana Allahu Akbar. She said I'll be patient.

00:21:05--> 00:21:23

Be patient, yada, so Allah, but yet so Allah I get uncovered. So he said that I'll make dua for Subhanallah so why did the chef called this hadith here? Patience, she said I will be patient. Yeah. When if you look at the at the reward in the Quran, which is

00:21:24--> 00:21:35

Bhima soveral. Jen Neto, Oh hurry era, always you look at the huge rewards

00:21:36--> 00:22:09

is because you see the word Sabra mentioned, always sovereign mentioned in every aspect of your life. Sometimes in our job, we need so much patience, right? In when we are dealing with our family members, we need a lot of patience within the community. And now with the new board, they need a lot of patience. Everybody needs a lot of patience. When you are hit by calamity. You need a lot of patience to perform the bear that you need a lot of patience, all that stuff to stay away from the haram. You need a lot of patience. It's all over.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

It's all over. Now.

00:22:13--> 00:22:20

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam the chef mentioned the other Hadith, which we also we all know, also was SLM passed by a woman crying next to a grave.

00:22:21--> 00:22:26

He told him it tequila was to bury it tequila was buried.

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

have Taqwa of Allah and be patient,

00:22:30--> 00:22:58

not recognizing that that was the salah Salem, she responded, leave me alone. You have not been struck with what I what I'm struck with. Leave me alone. She does not know. It was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then she was told it was him and his Salatu was Salam. extremely distressed and agitated. At her blunder she hastened to Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam and said, Yeah, Rasul Allah, I did not recognize you.

00:22:59--> 00:23:01

I did not recognize you.

00:23:02--> 00:23:07

So Allah sallam, he told us of the very famous statement, maybe alpha

00:23:09--> 00:23:18

in the Massaro and the Submitty. Lulu, indeed patients should be displayed at the beginning at the beginning of the affliction.

00:23:20--> 00:23:46

So when we always face problems, let's remind each other it's very easy for me to say it right now. But if you are hit by a calamity, how long it's going to take to say in that Allah and La La Joan, how long you're going to start feeling Alhamdulillah this is all from Allah. He is coming Hakeem in the one who decided this the one who decreed This is Al Hamra. He mean he's the old wise, he's the old generous, he's the old Aleem,

00:23:47--> 00:23:48

have to remember all these things,

00:23:49--> 00:24:01

then to make it easy. This Subhanallah there's no way no matter what we are going through no matter what you're going through, okay, no matter how bad things are.

00:24:04--> 00:24:10

If you are given the opportunity to run your life, you will only run it the way it is right now.

00:24:12--> 00:24:19

I repeat, no matter how bad things are, if you will give him the opportunity to run your life

00:24:20--> 00:24:22

you will find out the best

00:24:23--> 00:24:27

the best state that you will be in is the state that you are in right now.

00:24:29--> 00:24:30


00:24:31--> 00:24:33

Because the one who's running your life

00:24:34--> 00:24:35

is the master

00:24:36--> 00:24:46

he is your Creator Subhanallah the second point so he said we have several supper by itself is not enough we need with it. Ah

00:24:49--> 00:24:54

What do we need to do Sabra? Because sometimes you are sober because you have no other choice.

00:24:55--> 00:24:56


00:24:57--> 00:24:59

Is my father's gonna come back from death?

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

No So what am I going to do I'm going to be patient but someone has to be associated with

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

it's always repeated Ramadan

00:25:16--> 00:25:18

expecting the reward

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

from Allah azza wa jal

00:25:53--> 00:26:30

expecting the reward for that patience, not on patience because I have no other choice. No, I'm being patient because I read about patience. I heard Hadith about patient that's why I'm patient. Somebody and he said I'm expecting because I'm patient, Allah subhanho wa Taala is gonna give me this is gonna erase some sense is going to do that.
