We begin in the name of Allah praising Allah Zildjian and asking him to send his finest Peace and blessings upon his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his family and his companions and all those who tried his path.
We have a lot of those into it comes from us and you and our families and our and the Muslims everywhere. This month of Ramadan and all that we were able to exert in this month of Ramadan and to even accept from us what we did not exert but intended on exerting in that month of Ramadan, where he is the most generous seasonals bountiful to kind of hold on.
The brief reminder this afternoon
is around the conclusion of Salah hijab we're in Allah azza wa jal says in rodmell mn Smls you will have the will G burly for eBay in a Mila was stuck on Amina will hammer the hell in turn. Now who can have a loom and Jaya hula? We have certainly offered the Amana the trust and responsibility, this trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains and they all declined it they all refused to accept it.
And they were fearful of it will hemella hand in sand but the human beings took it on. He accepted the Amana. He accepted the trust.
What is the Amana? What is the trust?
The trust is everything. The Trust is everything we've been entrusted with. It is the responsibility of carrying out the mission of life in a way that will deliver us
to our homecoming to our return home.
In a sense, the Amana is free will as some people put it, though ultimately Free Will it's for Allah subhanho wa Taala but it is a degree of willpower a degree of agency ability to act. And that is why in a sense, the Amana is freedom Korea. It is the freedom of the human being to rise or to fall, the freedom that was placed on the shoulders of the human being to either
raise himself to a level of true freedom and permanent freedom in the Hereafter.
And also the freedom to destroy themselves to self destruct
for eternity. And that is why it is scary. It is a great opportunity. But it's also a great risk. It is about survival forever. Or it is about Doom forever. And so the heavens and the earth and the mountains were afraid they declined. And the human being said, I will take it on I will take on this freedom,
the freedom to truly rise it's freedom to truly be free. And forever be free. Means what the freedom to it comes from you using that freedom to listen to choose to listen to Allah subhanho wa Taala listen to his instructions, listen to his guidance
and to remember that he knows your best interest better than anyone else, including yourselves.
But at the same time, the freedom to self destruct means the freedom to listen to yourself. If you want to listen to your wishes and your knowledge and your know how, and to listen to your Shavon that they know what is in your best interest.
And the story of the very first human being to carry that trust as a family history perfectly represents this equation. As I'm adding Salem our father's sin, his mistake was what is the symbol of freedom, the freedom to depart if you wish, from the instructions of Allah subhanho wa Taala it was the freedom of Adam alayhis salam to think for himself. That wound of being Adam Allah He said
I'm slipping into forgetting the instructions Allah gave him
slipping into doing what he wanted.
Not what Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted from him. And the consequence of that freedom for Adam Alehissalaam was what what was the end result is the human being not just Adam Alayhis Salam, he is the model, he is the original, he's the prototype, it is the consequences that he could never have foreseen. And likewise ourselves, when we use our freedoms in the wrong way, we can never calculate the consequences. Because it's part of our nature to be short sighted. It is part of our nature to not be able to assess the outcome, either in Salem chose to use the freedom to eat from the tree. And the consequences was
that eating from that tree would mean something very different, or removal from Paradise, where you would now have to remove the waste of what you eat from your body, something you could have never imagined. That didn't exist in Genda.
Also, we had to now have the consequences live for an entire lifetime, where he had to toil work hard, invest blood, sweat and tears, so that he could earn the next bite. After that one free bite in general, that he used his freedom to, to use
or to capitalize on and also of the consequences that he would have to now be relocated to a world where he would have to compete, tooth and nail because the world is so limited in what is available on this world. And all that comes with of emotional hurts of wounds of hard feelings of otherwise.
That was the end result of the freedom and misusing that freedom and what it did to our father, alanine salatu salam who not only has our Central LA Hollywood
Hungary Nahua Firth was salam ala Lana via via the shadow Allah Allah in the law of the hood, actually Calico shadow number from within our visible whenever you who are solo.
And so while Islam calls us to enjoying our freedoms in this world, and seeing freedom in the right way, in the everlasting way, in the hereafter and prioritizing that, we must always remember the downside of the slogan, which is that it has the potential to destroy us, not just to raise us, that was the freedom that Adam Alehissalaam was entrusted with. And it's removed him from Jana.
And the children of Adam Alehissalaam, us continue to do the same thing. Without the Toba of Adam Alayhis Salam most of the time, they continue to use their freedom to do what they want,
not what Allah subhanho wa Taala want. And at the end of our lives, you're going to have a an auditing, you're going to have a calculation of how many times you use your freedom to do what Allah wanted, and how many times you use your freedom to do what you wanted. Every single one of those actions, every moment of autonomy of choice that Allah gave you will be placed in those scales. And see how many transactions you did with that freedom that were in your favor. And that will raise you and how many of them will cause you to vomit. And that will determine your end without end.
As the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa early he will tell them said
Kulu nasioc do every single morning people set out
for that year or NAFSA who and they sell themselves meaning you invest in a cause you use your freedoms in a certain way you do you perform the transaction so that it will never settle they sell their soul. For more people her as a result of the transaction, you free yourself you actually free yourself will move it will have or they destroy themselves.
And so even the person that does not set out with his feet in the morning,
the one who slept through feds, that was a transaction he made. The ones that who actually walked out in the morning and stayed and didn't go out seeking his livelihood is an action he made and she made every single morning you set out you set the direction you use your volition, your will your choices in a certain way. Every single one of them is a signature from you on a particular transaction that will determine your rights or your fault.
And then finally, I You mentioned this topic, because it is in your hand Allah who will not rob you. He said you do this and it's up to you every single morning
because many times we get the post Ramadan
Lose and we say it's out of my hands after Ramadan.
I can't maintain I Shavon is back in control. All of these are lies that we sell to ourselves. Every single morning Allah has given you a chance to use your freedom to liberate yourself or to use your freedom
to destroy yourself may Allah azza wa jal help us liberate ourselves. By surrendering to Him, liberate us from the limitations of this world and the limitations of our understanding and the limitations of everything that manipulates us that we that we detect and that which we don't. And may Allah has no agenda to make us be of those that are known on the day of judgment as those who are emancipated. Otah liberated by Rahman Allahumma. Amin. Allahu Akbar, Lana ohana.
