ama but before I proceed, actually, with my hotbar just
actually hit me right now that this is the first hotbar on this pulpit.
And it would have been more worthy.
sure he also called the to be standing right here, as he has been part of building this community. And he had a major role with this particular center. What I can put down Allahumma sha Allah subhanho wa Taala as well was that Allah azza wa jal allowed me this opportunity to be here. And I humbly appreciate it. And I ask Allah subhanaw taala to beg me worthy to be part of this beautiful community.
We had plans, but Allah subhana wa Taala had his own plans.
And ultimately and always, Allah's plans take place.
And it could have not come at a better time.
That Allah subhanaw taala allows us access to this place
after a year
in which we were deprived from having such gatherings
a year. That should have been
a good opportunity
Do for all of us really, to look deep into our souls, and see whether we're living a lifestyle that is consistent with the purpose for which Allah subhanho wa Taala created us.
So Allah Subhana Allah allows us this opportunity to come and gather in this place for the first time
in the first Juma
of this month of Ramadan
and this is really something that
is worthy that we sit with ourselves and really reflect and ponder upon this
as a panela, it's Allah subhanho wa Taala as well
that we do not abandon our old mo salah.
Right, just immediately shift from one place to another but rather after a year, in which we were not able to access it as we were we were used to.
And then all of that there's higher for us. But the fact that you and I are here today, right?
The fact that we're here today, the fact that Allah subhanaw taala spared us and allowed us
to fast three days of the month of Ramadan, and then be here on the fourth day on the first urine
reminded me of a hadith and a story, if you will. A story that made me appreciate every opportunity every year Allah Subhana Allah allows me to experience the month of Ramadan. The story is about two companions, both of whom accepted Islam together at the same time they came into Islam together.
After some time, one of them was killed in the battlefield as a murderer.
So he became a martyr Shaheed
shahada is something that the companions of the prophet is allowing us to pursue. And we know it's a great status for someone to have Shahada.
A year later, the other companion his friend who accepted Islam with him, died of what we would call natural causes.
Another companion had a dream about them.
And in the dream, he saw that the one who died a year later due to natural causes interest Jana before the other one. So the soul of the one
who passed away due to natural causes. He goes ahead of the martyr the Shaheed
so he came to the prophesy asylum and he told him the story or what what he saw.
And they were amazed. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them that the other one had an extra year, in which he was able to pray more and do more righteous deeds. And he had an opportunity to fast one extra Ramadan.
He had an opportunity to fast one extra Ramadan.
We all know that, at least in my circle, without even looking at any numbers or statistics, I can tell you, it was the deadliest year.
And this community alone,
more than 50 people died over the last year, more than 50 people. It couldn't be 60
some of the ones that used to pray to him I was asked regularly, are no longer here.
Within my own family,
people pass away due to this, because of this pandemic because of COVID-19 or other causes.
But I had never given condolences
and share thoughts and prayers with as many people as I did during this last year.
It's a fact
some of us may be skeptical about it, but it's a fact.
Because there are so those of us who have been affected by it.
And this makes me humbles me that Allah subhanaw taala gave us an opportunity to witness Ramadan and again, here we are the month of Ramadan comes and makes us discover that many of the excuses that we make for ourselves or that shaytaan comes
and uses as tricks are really have no validity.
Right? We fasted three days nothing happened to us. We didn't die, it was possible. What stops us from fasting three days every month.
unless we adopt the same mindset that you and I have right now. And that mindset is that the month of Ramadan is a golden opportunity. So what do we do? We take advantage of it and we do things that used to be used to feel like Mission Impossible.
Playing taraweeh reading more and spending more time with our family members. Right now
So today my dear brothers and sisters, I want to remind us of the value of this opportunity that we have. We have to understand what is at stake the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it says Masamoto Madonna Emanuel 87 If you don't know who might have had them in them be whoever faster mother from Amman out of faith and counting on the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala and expecting that award from Allah azza wa jal, their previous sins will be forgiven.
Mana Palma Ramadan whoever prays the nights of the month of Ramadan, Eman and YT seven same thing out of faith
and expecting the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala will
then be his previous sins will be forgiven the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said miserable is a person who gets the opportunity to experience Ramadan and does not manage his sins to be forgiven.
loving Him and for Him and Rocco Ramadan when I'm up for Allah. This is the month of forgiveness.
This is what is what is at stake my dear brothers and sisters,
the forgiveness of our sins
to be granted emancipation from hellfire, let it come in and now every Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that Allah Subhana Allah the Almighty grants emancipation frees people from hellfire every single night of the month of Ramadan.
So it's not a little puzzle. So we have to take every moment of this month.
And let us not forget.
So again, when introducing this month,
says Shahid, oramo Vaughn and levy Uzi levy Hill on
the month of Ramadan, during which the Quran was revealed. This is the month of Quran
this is the month where we're supposed to reengage the Quran, but not only for a month and then forget about it, but get a taste of what it's like to live a life that revolves around the Quran. With the hope that we actually internalize this usually talk about this concept at the end of the month of Ramadan.
But it should be really discussed right now.
Right? Before it's too late, so that we pay attention to it and we try to internalize the lessons that come from us engaging the Quran listening to it, reading it, understanding it, and hopefully applying it.
Allah Subhana Allah says that this Quran came with a leanness it came as a guidance, it has a solution for all of our problems.
It does, we just have to engage. So today I'm here to remind myself first and foremost and urge you
we live a lifestyle that revolves around this beautiful, amazing and extraordinary book a living miracle. Who the leanness were being united minute Who dabbled for con.
So make sure if you haven't already started, if you're not up to date with well
have a lot of time to catch up.
But before you know it, right, almost 1/8 of the month is gone. Before we know it is going to be gone the entire month. So take advantage today, as soon as you this
place. Reengage the Quran, hold on to your must have. Read it. pause, reflect upon its meanings and ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless your life
and to bless your family
and to bless every aspect.
By the virtue of this book, Allah hoomin Find our findable Quran and Aleem which Allah will enter Imam Muhammad

I know that we have many community members here who work for FedEx, my heart goes out to any of you who may have suffered the loss of a colleague.
I don't have enough information about the incident that took place yesterday
in the state of Indiana, I believe.
But again, this is another reminder that this country has a serious problem.
So far more than 45 mass shootings in the last month.
So serious problem that needs to be addressed.
And ask ALLAH SubhanA Huhtala to protect us. But it's again another reminder that we're not we are not as safe as we think we are.
And we have to always rely on Allah subhanho wa Taala for our protection, so therefore I didn't want to leave
this far without reminding myself and everyone
that we need to fortify ourselves
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us beautiful.
It's easy to remember it's easy to memorize,
but very hard to maintain.
All it takes is literally less than a minute to say it. Alright?
if you can't,
you know, remember for for whatever reason, put a reminder for yourself, maybe in the car when you
write somewhere, maybe on your phone.
You can you can set it up until it becomes a habit. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us to say, when we leave the house
telecoil to Allah Allah, Allah La Quwata illa
Bismillah to a Cal to Allah Allah. Allah Hello La Quwata illa villa.
You want to add more to it? Right? Bismillah Hillel Duramax me sure you fill out a duel every summer you will host any olallie in three times.
Right? And then
you're under the protection of Allah subhanaw taala but there is another form of protection daily protection.
extended to all of us
is when we attend federal prayer and pray Fisher with a Jamar the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says when Salah Subha who have even met Allah, whoever prays treasure in with the congregation, that person is under the protection of Allah subhanho wa taala.
My dear brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said a solo ad to enhance the five daily prayers from one salon to the next. Well, you're more apt to either Joomla from one Friday to the next Friday.
What I'm Alana Isla Ramadan, and from one Ramadan to the next kuthodaw to Lima, VEDA Han.

What a beautiful gift, the five daily prayers between fire and Zoho or uma if it's the day of genre, between the horror and also whatever happens in between. We're all sinners.
We're sinful by nature.
And we do minor things that we don't pay attention to.
That we lose count of. One of the ways to have them forgiven
and purged and canceled and deleted and removed from our record
on daily prayer x one from one job to the next one, from one Ramadan and Allah azza wa jal blesses, to yet experience another Ramadan. Ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to forgive our sins and accept our deeds and make us of those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to. May Allah Subhana Allah bless this beautiful community may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect and bless this beautiful institution of ours the center, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make it a beacon of guidance and light for all mankind. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah bless our family members and our children and our spouses may Allah subhanaw taala guide us to that which brings us closer to him and may Allah
