Well, Philip antonova como la la la la Sula, hufa, depositphotos and alima. America do my dear brothers and sisters. Today's a great and significance significant day. However, many people do not realize the significance of this day. So today's host was going to be focused about the significance of this day, and the significance and the importance and the magnitude of this gathering. But before I say anything, I'm sure that many of you have heard of the solar storm yesterday, where, basically, I mean, the sun is full of explosions. I mean, as we

00:03:31--> 00:03:43

speak, it's just one big huge bowl of fire. Right, and they're explosions. But one of those flares of the Sun caused a storm that was heading in our direction.

00:03:44--> 00:03:51

A storm at the speed if I remember correctly, of 500 million miles per hour.

00:03:52--> 00:04:06

That's pretty fast. And it wasn't necessarily going to hit us straight. Because if one of those flares or the effects of this flare flares of the sun, strike the earth. In other words, if it whips us,

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

we're doomed. We're done.

00:04:10--> 00:04:27

We're done. It's not going to be a series of explosions and earthquakes and stuff like that. No, no, the earth will disintegrate. That's how vulnerable we are. However, today, this morning, Washington Post and I'm just gonna read the headline says

00:04:28--> 00:04:38

solar storm strengthens Friday, before means before before Wayne's new flair heading to Earth on Sunday.

00:04:40--> 00:04:44

And this is since 2004. This is the most significant of those stores.

00:04:45--> 00:04:46

Friday

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

strengthens

00:04:49--> 00:04:55

before it fades away or it goes away. It got stronger today or last night

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

and that reminded me of an amazing Hadeeth

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

mentioned by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually the Hadith that collected by mm hmm Albania Rahim Allah consider this hadith to be sound.

00:05:12--> 00:05:21

He says mammy Malachy mocha Robin was a man in one in one area in Wenatchee Valley one in El Bulli when kamiyama,

00:05:23--> 00:05:26

elona shinomiya minima,

00:05:27--> 00:05:42

that there isn't pretty much everything, the whole universe, no angel, and anything else that is living in heaven, the earth itself, even the winds, the mountains and the oceans.

00:05:43--> 00:05:48

All of them are always nervous whenever the day of tomorrow starts.

00:05:49--> 00:05:58

Because they know and they're well aware, it is programmed within the universe, to understand or know or sense the importance of the day of Joomla.

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

And it is the day of our celebration.

00:06:03--> 00:06:08

It is the day of our gathering, this is the most significant day of the week,

00:06:10--> 00:06:18

the greatest day of the week. So today's football is about the greatness of this day, the importance of this day,

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

the holiness of this day,

00:06:22--> 00:06:52

a survey that was conducted in 2008, targeted towards about 300,000, active politically active or politically oriented people included a good number of Muslims. Now, eight out of those surveyed, eight out of those Muslims who are on that survey who are asked, claim to have a strong Islamic orientation or Islam a strong connection to their faith.

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

which is which is good,

00:06:56--> 00:07:05

right? However, when asked about how often they go to their Masjid, or the place of worship,

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

it was only it was actually less than four.

00:07:10--> 00:07:17

Only 39% said that they go to the mall to the to the place of worship to their mosque

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

once a week or more.

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

In other words,

00:07:24--> 00:07:25

four out of 10

00:07:26--> 00:07:50

right, or 50% of those who claim to have good Islamic orientation or some kind of good understanding of their religion, or connection with their religion do not even go once a week to the masjid that includes Juma and it is sad when you ask people when you ask care, for instance, and brother who Sam is in the audience,

00:07:51--> 00:08:12

who's the Director of care LA, or you ask EMPAC or any of those national organizations about the Muslim population in any area? How do you how do you come up? How do you determine that Muslims in, for instance, Orange County are about 150? If that's if I'm correct, I don't know. That's what I heard.

00:08:14--> 00:08:30

And I think one of those formulas, one of those forms, I'm not quite certain of how, but one of those formulas is that you look at the people who attended eight, or you look at the people who attend Joomla. So you ask every Masjid how many people attend Joomla?

00:08:31--> 00:08:35

Right. And I think the attendees of Joomla are supposed to be with 1% or 3%.

00:08:38--> 00:09:12

How is it 5% 5%? Eight is about 10%. So you basically calculate, you ask each lead gathering, how many people attended approximately, and they give you the number and you multiply that by 10. That's the Muslim population. How sad is that? How sad is the fact that only or less than 10% of the actual Muslim population attends read and how sad is it that only or less than 5% of the actual population attends Juma?

00:09:14--> 00:09:39

Either people don't understand the significance of this day, or Juma doesn't matter anymore. Gemma has become irrelevant. This day brothers and sisters, as I said, is a great day Imam Muslim Rahim Allah reported that the best day the process of sell them saying, Hey Gary Oldman, pollachi shampoo, yo yo Ma. Fi Holika. Adam was he

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

was he

00:09:43--> 00:09:50

the best day the most significant day of the week is the day of Juma the day the day that we call Friday. I like to call it Joomla

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

because that's what a lot quoted in the Quran. There is actually a sutra titled Joomla the day over Joomla is the most significant day of the week.

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

And then the Prophet elaborates further. It is on that day that God created Adam. And on that day, Allah admitted him to Jenna, he entered paradise. And it's on that day that Adam was taken out of agenda. In another narration, the Day of Judgment

00:10:21--> 00:10:31

begins on the day of Juma and that explains why the heaven and earth and the mountains and the winds, and the angels are

00:10:32--> 00:10:36

aware of the significance of this day why they get nervous when this day begins.

00:10:38--> 00:10:58

I personally, if this day must be the Day of Resurrection. And if we're going to be around, then I rather the Day of Resurrection begin while I'm here in a gathering like this, doing what a law has ordered me to do, and doing what the prophet peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, taught us to do.

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

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not only did he speak about the significance of this day, but the significance of the most significant, the most important activity that takes place, and that is this gathering, the Joomla, the gathering of Joomla

00:11:16--> 00:11:54

and the sermon, all of this and by the way, unlike any other lecture, or class or anything, that one delivers not that they're not important lectures that talk about the Quran. And the prophetic statements are very important. However, Juma specifically, is so important that attending and sitting in and of itself is an act of worship, and one must conduct himself or herself, a visitor chooses to come to the Juma right in a fashion that is befitting for Juma.

00:11:56--> 00:12:24

So one must come early. And I'll give some some tips later at the end of the hotel inshallah Tada, but how we can ensure that we come early, but one must come early to one must focus during the hotbar. And listen, even if the person does not understand what is being said. Or even if you cannot relate to what is being sent. Even if you find me as a hottie boring.

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

You still have to listen.

00:12:27--> 00:12:55

And you still have to focus. Just like if you were praying behind someone and you're not necessarily enjoying their recitation. Or you may not even understand what they're reciting you still stand there with humility and focus. Or you try. And I know someone may say, Well, it's very hard, it is very hard. It is very hard while I'm speaking for me to focus let alone if I was sitting in the audience, so I understand that yet you just have to struggle and focus.

00:12:56--> 00:13:23

So much so that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if you mess with something, if you play with something, like even if it's beads, if you're messing with the beads, you're playing with them, or the carpet, during the time of the Prophet, it was a sand, the problem is I told them not to play with the sand in the pebbles and start, you know, making like doodling or something like that. If you do that, or nowadays, of course,

00:13:24--> 00:13:35

these devices devices that we are so addicted to, you start basically tweeting or you start checking or updating your Facebook status or texting people.

00:13:36--> 00:13:50

Whoever does that law, they have indeed, violated one of the rules of Juma and thus the reward of attending they still have to attend, but the reward of attending will go away it will nullify it.

00:13:51--> 00:13:55

In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says whoever talks to someone

00:13:57--> 00:14:02

during Juma or tells someone who is making noise to be quiet.

00:14:03--> 00:14:08

mcaliley is good. And he answered what theory Why am I finally after he saw

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

a woman love of Allah tala

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

Be quiet. Don't talk

00:14:18--> 00:14:21

that nanofibers uma so you can be very careful.

00:14:22--> 00:14:41

Now, what if someone decides to come early for those who come early for Joomla glad tidings given to them. There is a headache and I urge you to look it up. I won't be able to go through the whole headache. But there is a headache. I urge you that talks about the significance The earlier you come, the more reward he gets.

00:14:42--> 00:14:56

And there is a point at which with due respect to all all of us Sharla data, there is a point at which if you come You still have to come and sit in and attend. But the angels at that point will stop recording.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

When the Imam comes or when the hottie

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

arrives and says As salam aleikum wa rahmatullah the angels, fold their records, and they do not take attendance. That's it. So if you're tardy, the angels will not record now Allah knows that you are present no problem.

00:15:16--> 00:15:19

He knows, but the angels would not be reporting that.

00:15:20--> 00:15:22

So the earlier you come,

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

the better it is.

00:15:25--> 00:15:43

What if someone says, Well, I'm very, very busy, I have so many things to do so I only attend Joomla. At my convenience, may Allah subhanaw taala help you brothers and sisters, let it be known especially for the brothers Juma aluma. To Misha Islam.

00:15:44--> 00:15:48

If you are in a situation where you cannot stablish Joomla

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

permanently,

00:15:52--> 00:16:06

right? It is incumbent on you to change your situation. And if that requires you moving to a place where you can perform Juma or changing your line of profession,

00:16:07--> 00:16:08

then you must do so.

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

And I'm not going to sugarcoat it, I'm not going to basically say, you know, it is a serious issue.

00:16:16--> 00:16:27

Attending I remember there was a time where people who don't regularly pray, right, do more hours the last thing Joomla is what determines whether the person is still Muslim or not.

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

This This is it. This is what is left of Islam.

00:16:32--> 00:16:47

I mean, even with Christians, and I was going to share with you some statistics about other faith groups, but even with Christians, a person does not attend. He doesn't he or she don't go on Sundays if they don't go to the church once a week. That's it.

00:16:48--> 00:16:50

They're considered non practicing

00:16:51--> 00:16:51

Christians.

00:16:53--> 00:17:06

So what is left of Islam, but what people need to understand is that it's so serious in our Muslim reports in an authentic hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saying they enter he in acquirement and whether

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

Yana Antara Kimo Jamaat

00:17:10--> 00:17:15

tieman Allahu Allah pulumi him to Malaya Khun Amina hoffy

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

either those who are intentionally missing jumong either they stopped doing so or Allah subhanho wa Taala will seal their hearts and they will indeed be amongst the heedless, whom Allah mentioned in the Quran to be the dwellers of hellfire. May Allah protect you and me from hellfire. May Allah Subhana Allah save us and preserve us And may Allah subhanaw taala make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to a Hulu head of our software Allah Allah Professor

00:17:55--> 00:18:00

Alhamdulillah ham danka here on Paiva Mubarak Rafi command Bellini Jelena he really

00:18:01--> 00:18:06

well salatu salam ala rasulillah, who Allah Allah He will be women whether

00:18:07--> 00:18:11

my dear brothers and sisters, please brothers move forward and fill in all the gaps Baraka Luffy

00:18:12--> 00:18:16

May Allah reward and May Allah bestow mercy upon those who responded charlatan?

00:18:20--> 00:19:02

Allah subhanaw taala says that if it's if you're told to move or make room or a squeeze, and you handed in the appeal of Mr. COVID, majelis, yes, FAFSA, Allah, so Allah has promised those who respond to that, that Allah will forgive their sense. So don't Don't, don't let anyone else take that opportunity away from you. If you have the opportunity to respond to that. It is a call that we find in a PR ad, do it with the intention of hoping that Allah will forgive your sins. And don't ever consider any of these things little or do not look down upon it. Don't believe anything. You never know what may be the cause of you entering agenda or Allah being pleased with you.

00:19:04--> 00:19:26

Let me also bring to your attention brothers and sisters that in case of emergency, earthquake, fire, may Allah Subhana Allah forbid, may Allah preserve us in protecting soul and protect, protect and preserve this message of ours. And all of our members, please look at the nearest exit to you. Don't worry about getting your shoes.

00:19:27--> 00:19:44

Right, the nearest exit even if that's not where your shoes are, that's where so if I may just ask you this point in sha Allah tala, just to look around you and determine where the nearest the closest exit is. So for people who are in this side of the machine, that would be your closest

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

exit. And for people who are on that side, that would be our closest and people who are on this side. You can either you actually have multiple paths. And for those people who are privileged to be in the multipurpose room, they have so many exits, so

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

Consider that area as well in Charlottetown.

00:20:04--> 00:20:38

So what do we do about Joomla? Here are some tips recommended, some are recommended by the scholars of Islam and others are recommended by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself. They've been Miss Ross says that they're one of those habits that the Messenger of Allah silent did not like for us to have is staying late at night, generally speaking, but especially in specifically on the eve of Joomla. So Thursday night, to go to sleep early,

00:20:39--> 00:20:51

to go to sleep early Thursday night. So now when tomorrow comes, you are what well rested, and you can focus and you don't fall asleep, no matter how boring The bed is, once again.

00:20:53--> 00:21:02

Second tip, to stay out to attend fudger on the day of Joomla and do Vicar and read for an afterwards

00:21:03--> 00:21:43

not necessarily do like a lecture or anything. But to do that, in a way you're warming up for that day. That day is a significant day and you're warming up for that day, you're starting your day will sell out to the treasure in the masjid in the gym, and you're sitting in your reading Quran and one of those readings that are recommended either the eve of tomorrow or the morning of June Mara is reading spiritual calf. And Mashallah our brothers here have the habit of doing that every Friday, there is a group of people that sits in that side of the machine, and they read stories every Friday. And most of them are provided all of them are professional, they have work, they come early,

00:21:43--> 00:21:49

they come ready, they read, they start their day with that, and then they go to their work. So I urge you to take advantage of that.

00:21:51--> 00:22:03

Number three, to bathe or take a shower, the morning of a Joomla. Right, and also to rest and to dress up on the day of Joomla is recommended.

00:22:05--> 00:22:16

Number four to attend early, early enough that during the time of the Prophet, it was recommended that people do not ride their animals or mules or horses but rather walk to the machine.

00:22:17--> 00:23:01

Now one may tell me Of course we don't have mules. None of us have camels as well. Right. And if you do have a camel, please leave it at home. Don't bring it here anyways, on Joomla or other than Joomla. You don't want to bring it here. But what do you do? Well, ah if you want to come early enough, and park your car in the furthest spot in the parking lot, and then walk with the intention of getting the reward that I'm going to mention Alhamdulillah if you want to come especially for the youth and the young people this actually advice was given to the youth. If you want to park somewhere far right, and leave the nearby spots open for the elderly. And for the ladies and for the

00:23:01--> 00:23:43

families, you will get double reward because not only will you get the reward for being considered, but you will actually get the reward of walking. And I personally show without a starting hope you know from from from last week, I parked somewhere else and I start walking through the motions. And I would like to see as many people as possible do that. The Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Maha Salah Watterson, Yeoman Juma What? Corolla TECHO will measure when a miracle for me was xR when yellow. Canada will be cooling hot water in a row Senate in Austria, we have Akiyama

00:23:45--> 00:23:45

lava,

00:23:46--> 00:24:35

Whosoever takes a bath on the morning of Jumeirah, especially if they do also that is recommended in the student of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and comes early to Joomla and walks to the masala and comes in sits as close as possible to where the person giving the sermon stands and does not get himself distracted with anything he will receive for every step that he took the reward of fasting a whole year and standing up at night and praying. That's it. I just put it out there. For those who want to compete for that. You get the reward of someone who fasts the whole year and prays during the night.

00:24:36--> 00:24:59

If you come early, preoccupy yourself with reading for an Salawat on the Prophet sallallahu, invoking a lot of Peace and blessings upon His Prophet, reading and doing Vicar and do not engage in vain talk or you know going surfing, the net looking for you know, nonsense. So focus on something that is consistent that is of the nature of of

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

what you're here for which is a bad

00:25:03--> 00:25:46

finally once the Imam walks in, one should actually take advantage of the hot button listen carefully and then remember remember that on the day of Joomla after also it doesn't end there is a now there is a period during which if you make a long will answer your draft on the day of Juma many scholars are of the opinion that is late afternoon. It starts from after also and before sunset. That's why many of them used to recommend and use to themselves, come to the masjid and attend and sit and do Vicar. Let me also mention that many of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam reported that it was the habit during the time of the Prophet that they would not eat a heavy meal

00:25:46--> 00:26:28

or they do not eat lunch before Juma to Canada. It is very interesting. They didn't do that they only ate after Juma and you wonder why right? Because if you eat right before a gym, right, especially if you eat something heavy, chances are that you're going to be sleeping in it. So if you can also practice that that would be great. Great. Remember, to insha Allah tala have good intention in doing so. May Allah subhanaw taala alleviate the pain and the suffering of our brothers and sisters all over the world. And especially in specifically in in the region of Sham in Syria. And may Allah protect and preserve the people of Egypt from from the brutality of Assad and his regime.

00:26:28--> 00:26:49

May Allah subhanaw taala preserve, preserve and protect the people of of hems and all the other major cities that are under siege alohomora been a dramatic and a series of select national Nakula while attacking nylon fusina aloha My name is Luca and McCann's.

Corona. Corona has come Rouhani I mean, is it kinetico la, la, Mata Simone.

00:28:11--> 00:28:24

Ah, out of those surveyed, eight out of those Muslims who are on that survey, who are asked, claim to have a strong Islamic orientation or Islam a strong connection to their faith.

00:28:25--> 00:28:27

which is which is good.

00:28:28--> 00:28:37

Right? However, when asked about how often they go to their Masjid, or the place of worship,

00:28:39--> 00:28:41

it was only it was actually less than four.

00:28:42--> 00:28:49

Only 39% said that they go to the mall to the to the place of worship to their mosque

00:28:50--> 00:28:52

once a week or more.

00:28:53--> 00:28:54

In other words,

00:28:56--> 00:28:57

four out of 10

00:28:58--> 00:29:22

right, or 50% of those who claim to have good Islamic orientation or some kind of good understanding of their religion, or connection with their religion do not even go once a week to the masjid that includes Joomla. And it is sad when you ask people when you ask, care, for instance, and brother who Sam is in the audience,

00:29:24--> 00:29:45

who's the Director of care LA, or you ask EMPAC or any of those national organizations about the Muslim population in any area? How do you how do you come up? How do you determine that Muslims in, for instance, Orange County are about 150? If that's if I'm correct, I don't know. That's what I heard.

00:29:46--> 00:30:00

And I think one of those formulas, one of those forms, I'm not quite certain of how but one of those formulas is that you look at the people who attended aid, or you look at the people who attend jhamora so you ask every

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

Majid, how many people attend Joomla?

00:30:03--> 00:30:08

Right? And I think the attendees of Joomla are supposed to be with 1% or 3%. So

00:30:10--> 00:30:44

how is it 5% 5%? Eight is about 10%. So you basically calculate, you ask each read gathering, how many people attended approximately, and they give you the number and you multiply that by 10. That's the Muslim population. How sad is that? How sad is the fact that only or less than 10% of the actual Muslim population attends read and how sad is it that only or less than 5% of the actual population attends Juma?

00:30:46--> 00:31:14

Either people don't understand the significance of this day, or Juma doesn't matter anymore. Gemma has become irrelevant. This day brothers and sisters, as I said, is a great day Imam Muslim Rahim Allah they put it that the best day the problem send them saying, Hey yo, yo man pollachi shampoo. Yo yo Ma. Fi Holika Adam, Wolfie Hillel Jana Wolfie Amina.

00:31:15--> 00:31:22

The best day, the most significant day of the week is a day of Joomla. The day, the day that we call Friday, I like to call it Joomla.

00:31:23--> 00:31:52

Because that's what a lot called it in the end, there's actually a sutra titled A Joomla. The day of a Joomla is the most significant day of the week. And then the Prophet elaborates further, it is on that day that God created Adam. And on that day, Allah admitted him to Jenna, he entered paradise. And it's on that day that Adam was taken out of agenda. In another narration, the Day of Judgment

00:31:53--> 00:32:03

begins on a day of Joomla. And that explains why the heaven and earth and the mountains and the winds, and the angels are

00:32:04--> 00:32:08

aware of the significance of this day why they get nervous when this day begins.

00:32:10--> 00:32:30

I personally, if this day must be the Day of Resurrection. And if we're going to be around, then I rather the Day of Resurrection begin while I'm here in a gathering like this, doing what a law has ordered me in the end to do and doing what the prophet peace and blessings of Allah be upon him taught us to do.

00:32:32--> 00:32:46

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not only did he speak about the significance of this day, but the significance of the most significant the most important activity that takes place, and that is this gathering, the Joomla, the gathering of Joomla

00:32:48--> 00:33:26

and the sermon, all of this and by the way, unlike any other lecture, or class or anything, that one delivers not that they're not important lectures are talk about the Quran. And the prophetic statements are very important. However, Juma specifically, is so important that attending and sitting in and of itself is an act of worship, and one must conduct himself or herself, a visitor chooses to come to the Juma right in a fashion that is befitting for Juma.

00:33:28--> 00:33:56

So one must come early. And I'll give some some tips later at the end of the hotel inshallah Tada, but how we can ensure that we come early, but one must come early to one must focus during the hotbar. And listen, even if the person does not understand what is being said. Or even if you cannot relate to what is being sent. Even if you find me as a karate boring.

00:33:57--> 00:33:58

You still have to listen.

00:33:59--> 00:34:28

And you still have to focus. Just like if you were praying behind someone and you're not necessarily enjoying their recitation. Or you may not even understand what they're reciting you still stand there with humility and focus. Are you try? And I know someone may say, Well, it's very hard, it is very hard. It is very hard while I'm speaking for me to focus let alone if I was sitting in the audience, so I understand that yet you just have to struggle it and focus.

00:34:29--> 00:34:55

So much so that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if you mess with something if you play with something, like even if it's beads, if you're messing with the beads, you're playing with them, or the carpet, during the time of the Prophet, it was a sand the Prophet told them not to play with the sand in the pebbles and start, you know making like doodling or something like that. If you do that, or nowadays Of course,

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

these devices devices that we are so addicted

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

Should

00:35:01--> 00:35:07

you start basically tweeting or you start checking or updating your Facebook status or texting people?

00:35:08--> 00:35:22

Whoever does that fucker the law, they have indeed, violated one of the rules of Joomla and thus the reward of attending they still have to attend, but the reward of attending will go away, it will nullify it.

00:35:23--> 00:35:27

In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says whoever talks to someone

00:35:29--> 00:35:34

during Juma or tells someone who is making noise to be quiet.

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

mcaliley is good.

00:35:37--> 00:35:40

He answered well theory why Mr. Connelly after he saw

00:35:43--> 00:35:44

a woman love of Allah tala.

00:35:46--> 00:35:48

Be quiet. Don't talk

00:35:50--> 00:35:53

that nanofiber Juma so we can be very careful.

00:35:54--> 00:36:13

Now, what if someone decides to come early for those who come early for Joomla glad tidings given to them. There is a headache and I urge you to look it up, I won't be able to go through the whole headache. But there is a headache. I urge you that talks about the significance The earlier you come, the more reward he get.

00:36:14--> 00:36:28

And there is a point at which with due respect to all all of us ishola data, there is a point at which if you come You still have to come and sit in and attend. But the angels at that point will stop recording.

00:36:29--> 00:36:47

When the Imam comes over with a hottie arrives and says As salam o Allah, Muhammad Allah, the angels, fold their records, and they do not take attendance. That's it. So if you're tardy, the angels will not record now Allah knows that you are present no problem.

00:36:48--> 00:36:51

He knows, but the angels would not be reporting that.

00:36:52--> 00:36:54

So the earlier you come,

00:36:55--> 00:36:56

the better it is.

00:36:57--> 00:37:15

What if someone says Well, I'm very, very busy, I have so many things to do so I only attend Joomla at my convenience, may Allah subhanaw taala help you brothers and sisters, let it be known especially for the brothers Juma illuma. To Misha in Islam.

00:37:16--> 00:37:21

If you are in a situation where you cannot stablish Joomla

00:37:22--> 00:37:23

permanently,

00:37:24--> 00:37:38

right? It is incumbent on you to change your situation. And if that requires you moving to a place where you can perform Juma or changing your line of profession,

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

then you must do so.

00:37:41--> 00:37:47

And I'm not going to sugarcoat it, I'm not going to basically say, you know, it is a serious issue.

00:37:48--> 00:38:00

Attending I remember there was a time where people who don't regularly pray. Right Juma hours, the last thing you want is what determines whether the person is still Muslim or not.

00:38:01--> 00:38:03

This is it. This is what is left of Islam.

00:38:04--> 00:38:19

I mean, even with Christians, and I was going to share with you some statistics about other faith groups, but even with Christians and a person does not attend, he doesn't he or she don't go on Sundays if they don't go to the church once a week. I said

00:38:20--> 00:38:22

they're considered non practicing

00:38:23--> 00:38:23

Christians.

00:38:25--> 00:38:41

So what is left of Islam, but what people need to understand is that it's so serious in our Muslim reports in an authentic hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saying they NTN acquirement and weathering haemangioma Murat, Ian Antara chemo Jamaat

00:38:42--> 00:38:47

tieman Allahu Allah pulumi him to Malaya, Khun amin Al hafi,

00:38:49--> 00:39:18

either those who are intentionally missing jumong either they stopped doing so or the last panel attalla will seal their hearts and they will indeed be amongst the heedless, whom Allah mentioned in the Quran to be the dwellers of hellfire. May Allah protect you and me from hellfire. May Allah Subhana Allah save us and preserve us. And may Allah subhanaw taala make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to a hello hello hello hello welcome pesto

00:39:27--> 00:39:38

Alhamdulillah ham danka here on Paiva mocha coffee, command belly legionnaire he will leave his own party. Well salatu salam ala rasulillah who are savvy women whether

00:39:39--> 00:39:49

my dear brothers and sisters, please brothers move forward and fill in all the gaps Baraka lofi May Allah reward and May Allah bestow mercy upon those who responded Charlotte Allah.

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

Allah subhanaw taala says that if it's if you're told to move or make room or a squeeze and you handed in another

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

With the appeal of Mr. COVID majelis, yes.

00:40:04--> 00:40:34

So Allah has promised those who respond to that, that Allah will forgive their sense. So don't Don't, don't let anyone else take that opportunity away from you, if you have the opportunity to respond to that, it is a call that we find in a PR and do it with the intention of hoping that Allah will forgive your sins. And don't ever consider any of these things little or do not look down upon it. Don't build anything. You never know what may be the cause of you entering Jenna, or Allah being pleased with you.

00:40:36--> 00:40:58

Let me also bring to your attention brothers and sisters that in case of emergency, earthquake, fire, may Allah Subhana, Allah forbid, may Allah preserve us and protect us all and protect, protect and preserve this message of ours. And all of our members, please look at the nearest exit to you. Don't worry about getting your shoes.

00:40:59--> 00:41:16

Right, the nearest exit even if that's not where your shoes are, that's where so if I may just ask you this point in sha Allah tala, just to look around you, and determine where the nearest the closest exit is. So for people who are in this side of the machine, that would be your closest

00:41:17--> 00:41:35

exit. And for people who are on that side, that would be your closest and people who are on this side, you can either you actually have multiple paths. And for those people who are privileged to be in the multi purpose room, they have so many exits, so want to consider that area as well in Charlottetown.

00:41:36--> 00:42:10

So what do we do about Joomla? Here are some tips recommended, some are recommended by the scholars of Islam and others are recommended by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself. They've been Miss Rose says that they're one of those habits that the Messenger of Allah silent did not like for us to have is staying late at night, generally speaking, but especially in a specifically on the eve of Joomla. So Thursday night, to go to sleep early

00:42:11--> 00:42:24

to go to sleep early Thursday night. So now when Juma comes, you are what well rested, and you can focus and you don't fall asleep, no matter how boring the hotbed is once again.

00:42:25--> 00:42:34

Second tip, to stay at to attend treasure on the day of Gomorrah, and do Vicar and read for an afterwards.

00:42:35--> 00:43:15

Not necessarily do like a lecture or anything. But to do that, in a way you're warming up for that day. That day is a significant day and you're warming up for that day, you're starting your day with Salatu the project in the masjid in the JAMA, and you're sitting in your reading Quran, and one of those readings that are recommended either the eve of Juma or the morning of June Mara is reading certificate. And Mashallah our brothers here have the habit of doing that every Friday, there is a group of people that sits, you know, in that side of the machine, and the resources every Friday, and most of them are provided all of them are professional, they have work, they come early, they

00:43:15--> 00:43:21

come ready, they read, they start their day with that, and then they go to their work. So I urge you to take advantage of that.

00:43:23--> 00:43:35

Number three, to bail, or take a shower, the morning of a Joomla. Right, and also to rest and to dress up on the day of Joomla is recommended.

00:43:37--> 00:43:48

Number four to attend early, early enough that during the time of the Prophet, it was recommended that people do not ride their animals or mules or horses but rather walk to the machine.

00:43:49--> 00:44:33

Now one may tell me Of course we don't have mules. None of us have camels as well. Right. And if you do have a candle, please leave it at home. Don't bring it here anyways, on Gmail or other than Joomla. You don't want to bring it here. But what do you do? Well, ah, if you want to come early enough, and park your car in the furthest spot in the parking lot, and then walk with the intention of getting the reward that I'm going to mention Alhamdulillah if you want to come especially for the youth and the young people this actually advice was given to the youth. If you want to park somewhere far right, and leave the nearby spots open for the elderly. And for the ladies and for the

00:44:33--> 00:44:59

families, you will get double reward because not only will you get the reward for being considered, but you will actually get the reward of walking. And I personally show without a starting hope you know from from from last week, I parked somewhere else and I start walking to the machine. And I would like to see as many people as possible do that. The Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Manasa

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

level of testing your Majumdar will

00:45:04--> 00:45:06

tackle will measure when America

00:45:09--> 00:45:15

when America Canada will be equally hot within a euro Senate in Austria we have Akiyama

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

Lucha

00:45:18--> 00:46:07

whosoever takes a bath on the morning of Joomla, especially if they do also that is recommended in the student of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and comes early to Joomla and walks to the masala and comes in sits as close as possible to where the person giving the sermon stands and does not get himself distracted with anything he would receive for every step that he took the reward of fasting a whole year and standing up at night and praying. That's it, I just put it out there. For those who want to compete for that. You get the reward of someone who fasts the whole year and prays during the night.

00:46:09--> 00:46:34

If you come early, preoccupy yourself with reading for an Salawat on the prophet SAW allies invoking a lot of Peace and blessings upon His Prophet, reading and doing Vicar and do not engage in vain talk or you know, go and surf the net, the net looking for you know, nonsense. So focus on something that is consistent that is of the nature of of have, what you're here for which is a bad

00:46:35--> 00:47:17

Finally, once the Imam walks in, one should actually take advantage of the hot button Listen carefully. And then remember, remember that on the day of Joomla, after also it doesn't end there is a now there is a period during which if you make a law, we'll answer your drug. On the day of Juma many scholars are of the opinion that is late afternoon. It starts from after also and before sunset. That's why many of them used to recommend and use to themselves, come to the masjid and attend and sit and do Vicar. Let me also mention that many of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam reported that it was the habit during the time of the Prophet that they would not

00:47:17--> 00:47:57

eat a heavy meal or they do not eat lunch before Juma to karnala it is very interesting. They didn't do that they only eight after Joomla and you wonder why right? Because if you eat right before Joomla especially if you eat something heavy, chances are that you're gonna want to be sleeping. It's no that's it. So if you can also practice that that would be great. Great. Remember, to insha Allah tala have good intention in doing so. May Allah subhanaw taala alleviate the pain and the suffering of our brothers and sisters all over the world, and especially in specifically in in the region of Sham in Syria. And may Allah protect and preserve the people of Egypt from from the

00:47:57--> 00:48:21

brutality of Assad and his regime.
