Yeah, you know, these are the last three verses from Surah.
These are the last three verses from Surah aluma. The surah itself is titled A Juma
which is this day.
And the most important and crucial part of the day is what we are all here to establish, perform, commit to.
So Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in a sutra titled after this event of the very event that were part of today,
a loss of Hannah metallic in the part in the last part of that sutra, in three verses,
tells us in calls upon us. And he says, Yeah, you have Lavina Ave Oh, you who believe
either an odious salette even Yeoman Joomla, when the event or when the when it's called for the prayer on the day of jhamora meaning this prayer, the prayer that you just the event that you just heard right now,
when this event is made,
and whether you hear it or you're aware of it, wherever you may be. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, first I will enter a victory lap. Then proceed to the remembrance of Allah.
Run to the remembrance of Allah. hasten to the remembrance of Allah.
and leave trade.
Leave your business, leave your work, leave your family, leave anything behind
Whether you're trading online,
or you're trading at work, wherever you may be, Allah subhanaw taala is saying all you who believe he's calling upon us
Call for the prayer on the day of Juma is made, then leave everything drop everything, forget everything and proceed, run, rush, hasten to one thing and one thing only. And Allah subhana wa tada says, Allah, Allah
to the remembrance of Allah.
Then he says to us clearly and I want you to listen to this, those of us who are still connected
those who did not do what I just did, which is disconnect.
Even if you don't want to turn that your device off, put it on.
What do they call it? airplane or flight mode. If you don't want to turn it off,
disconnect, drop everything. And Allah subhanaw taala says, go to that which is the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal, then you come to LA come,
that is better for you.
That is far better for you.
in contempt Allah mon, if you only know
this is what I want to focus on. On this first clip of mine after a long pause.
My dear brothers and sisters, Allah azza wa jal in this verse clearly tells us what the purpose what the main goal of this activity that we, in this commitment that we are part of every week, called Juma prayer. Allah azza wa jal clearly tells us what the purpose of it is. The purpose of it is not necessarily for you, to get a new, interesting, fascinating piece of information.
The purpose of it is not for you to get
perhaps, some political analysis by some expert.
Right The main purpose of it
the purpose of it is not for you to be entertained, but rather than the purpose of it is for you and I to come for the remembrance and to the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal.
this part of our day, should revolve
around the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal, a Juma that does not remind you of Allah azza wa jal that that Yama does not fulfill its purpose.
If I or any hottie does not manage to remind you of a loss of Hannah who went to Allah and help you remember Allah azza wa jal, then that person has failed in their mission.
the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal. So, my question is, why?
Why the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal?
How important is it?
And where do we go from here? Allah azza wa jal if the only thing Allah as I just said in the Quran about his remembrance is the verses that we find in Surah Baqarah surah two verse 152. Allah azza wa jal says Phil Cutrone, therefore,
as Coco, and I will remember you
that would have been enough.
If the only thing that you and I will get the only reason for us to remember Allah azza wa jal and get rid of any distraction and there are so many of them and inshallah, in the near future, we're going to address this issue, this disease called distraction.
This modern life of ours full of distractions,
distractions that are messing us up psychologically, emotionally, and even intellectually.
Human Brain, the way alarms are created us, we are not meant to multitask.
We're not meant to multitask.
answers, Allison, something that my father used to always tell me that just
did not create two hearts for a man.
You don't have two hearts.
We have become so distracted.
That we can barely focus on anything we can even carry on. We can even have real conversations. We can have real relationships. We can even sit with ourselves. We can even have have a period of time where we can just be by ourselves and think and reflect peacefully.
Unless we're distracting, and now it has become deadly.
And we'll address
This issue, distractions, distractions that are now causing people to
basically inflict harm upon other people that may even cause death
is becoming a major problem.
And it's a global problem. But it's becoming a major problem here in the United States of America.
deaths that are related to people being distracted, especially with these devices, that now we became devices that we were supposed to be using, we became dependent on these devices, we became not only you see, the thing is it didn't stop at devices, it actually continued. Now, we have you have multiple abs and now it has gone as far as you becoming so dependent on it, that you cannot function without these devices.
And without these apps, not only that, now, people cannot even have real relationships, real relationships, and have conversations without these devices.
And without these apps,
so my show that some of us even lost touch with how life used to be before any of this was available, or possible.
and because of this, it is important for us to remind ourselves and to be reminded
about this very crucial and very essential aspect of our existence, which is the remembrance of Allah. Allah says fifth Cutrone, if you're coming to the only thing that you get out of this is that you will be remembered by Allah, people complain.
Time and again. Whereas Allah,
you know, I feel lonely.
And in spite of all the followers and all the fans and all the likes,
and all the friends, despite of all of this, in spite of all the thumbs up,
the person feels lonely, abandoned, forsaken.
A lot, as we just said further could only come
if the only thing you get out of this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in the Hadith, that I am with my servant when he remembers me.
You're in the Presence of Allah azza wa jal, you are with Allah and Allah Subhana Allah is with you, that would have been enough. But there is more to it. Allah azza wa jal says,
In the following verse
for either coda to Sala and I want you to listen to this carefully, brothers and sisters will lie if our lives this mess that you see in the world, this mess that you see that that that we are just sick and tired of talking about and seeing and listening to and hearing about.
Right? There's no way out of this except
with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And by Allah Xhosa and how on earth do you expect a lot as well just to remember you are loose listen to you when you don't remember him.
Not only that, we have gotten to a point where if somebody was to talk to us about the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal, we don't find it interesting. We're like, yeah, of course we all know Allah, get to the next point, give us something more interesting, something more exciting.
Here's what Allah says for either a full day to Salah when this prayer. Remember, we said that a lot has been said that this very gathering of ours is meant for the remembrance of Allah if the only thing that we do is come here together and somebody says, remember Allah and you all say la ilaha illa Allah, then this particular part of the day has fulfilled its purpose.
Allah says once that is done once you're done with the Salah, and the Imam says As salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa salam aleikum, wa rahmatullah in Friday, prayer is over. Allah says at that point for either a full deity sola and when the salado the prayer has been concluded,
disperse, fantasy roofing, disperse, go back,
fantasy roof will
disperse within the land.
Right and seek Allah subhanaw taala is bounties, you can go back to your business, you can go back to work, you can go back to trading, you can go back to whatever you are doing that is Hillel. Go back to it and seek a loss of habitat as bounties and blessings and provision whatever Allah Subhana Allah has provided for you go back to it. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What is cotulla kathira Now that you have gotten a taste of what this is all about, which is the remembrance of Allah, remember Allah much continue to remember all
so this horrible brothers and sisters is a failure if you and I leave after this and don't remember Allah azza wa jal
until and unless something devastating something happens that makes us go like oh my god I have to remember Allah so yeah.
If we do not become passionate about Allah azza wa jal feel the love or just the Presence of Allah azza wa jal and carry on for the rest of the day remembering Allah, saying Subhan Allah and hamdulillah La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, praising Allah azza wa jal when something good happens.
praising Allah, when something bad happens.
If we don't do this after this a lot, then we have failed. Allah says, do it. Why Allah? What do we get out of it? Allah azza wa jal says, Come to flee home. Do that.
So that you may succeed. You want success in your business. You want success in your family, you want to succeed in your studies. remember Allah azza wa jal, he has another benefit of the remembrance of Allah. So not only does Allah Subhana Allah remember you and not only are you in the presence of a lot as origin and a loss of habitat is with you. When you remember Allah know Allah promises to give you success.
So remember, Allah azza wa jal.
It doesn't stop there. Those who remember a lot as well and continue to remember a lot as they're just they're most likely to end their lives in the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when a man came to him, and he said, O Messenger of Allah, I'm overwhelmed
with the teachings of Islam, they are so overwhelming, they're amazing. And there are so many things, but I'm overwhelmed. So give me something that I can hold on to something very simple that I can hold on to, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him lyocell Elisa lucapa Michaela, he says, you know, make sure that your mouth or your tongue is moist with a remembrance of Allah. Because when you talk, right?
saliva, your mouth will remain moist. So he said, make sure that you continue to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala.
If this is the one thing that you hold on to you fulfill all your obligations in Islam, right? And then the only thing that you do is just remember Allah azza wa jal, you're done. You're set.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, whoever's last statement, if you are any individual whose last statement in this life before they depart this life is La Ilaha Illa. Allah, the halogen will intergender.
And no, none of us knows when that moment may come. I'm standing here. And somehow we had a brand on this last Friday and I remember exactly where he usually sits.
He witness Juma with us last Friday,
the very next day, as he was walking, he got hit by a car and died right on the spot.
That's what this life is. This is the reality of it. And his seat right now is empty or somebody occupying it. This is life.
We leave the spot and May Allah Subhana Allah have mercy upon him.
Right? You never know when that is. That's why if you're constantly in the remembrance of Allah, you have higher chances of dying upon the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal.
So, that's but that's not where it stops. For those who come on the Day of Judgment. In this very this morning after failure. We were reminded by Dr. Emma Sabra
about a man who will come on the Day of Judgment does not have any, you know, much deeds, he had nothing. He will have nothing to present. And then La ilaha illAllah. That's the only thing.
He has La ilaha illAllah the saying of La ilaha illAllah it will be brought on a cart. And once it's put on the scale, it outweighs everything and Allah subhanaw taala orders him to go to agenda.
We're not talking about someone that just said it once and that said or claimed it. I'm not talking about claiming, I'm talking to people who are committed to it who repeat it very often. La ilaha illa Allah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says those who remember Allah as origin was the kitty and aloha casiotone was accurate. And the men and women who remember a lot as frequently
as urine Aviva, Allah has prepared for them forgiveness and great reward. Thus what is what is the image for you so success in this life and greater reward in the hereafter.
So remember allies are brothers and sisters akoto had a cold was saphira la de la confessor
hamdu lillahi wa salatu salam ala Reba hilarious stuff. How about my dear brothers and sisters?
The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reminded us and taught us to remember Allah azza wa jal at all times. The more you're you remember Allah azza wa jal, the better you are going. And by the way, I can sit here the efficacy of remembrance, the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal cannot be.
Now, please move forward in shelter, I'm told for you to move forward and fill in all the gaps.
The benefits of remembering Allah azza wa jal cannot be enumerated.
If you pay him a hammer, Allah mentions about 100 of them 100 benefits, and I'm talking about tangible things. We're not talking about tangible things, right. So they cannot be they cannot be counted. But now more than any other time, we need to remember Allah azza wa jal, if you're down and you don't know what to do about your own situation, or that of your children, or you don't know how to handle your relationship. Life is overwhelming. You remember a lot.
I'm not saying don't do anything else. No, there are things that you have to do. But remember Allah azza wa jal
if you are excited, life is good. everything is going fine and you are the most fortunate person in the community. remember Allah azza wa jal
if the political scene and the mess that we live in,
is driving you crazy, and you don't know which which direction to go into or what, remember Allah subhanho wa Taala.
If this situation and the plight of the oma is over harming you and you're down, you're depressed, you're overwhelmed, you're upset, you're angry. Remember, the origin of the Quran says,
right? Remember, Allah is in a seat if you forget, if you're not decimal, the alojado said, that means if you get angry, because when you get angry, anger causes you to forget.
If you're angry, if you're upset, if you don't like the corruption that you see around you, if you don't like the options that we are given, if you're a remember Allah subhanho wa Taala.
If you're threatened, confronted with so many challenges,
If you're confronting anything or anyone allies or just says, stand your ground, and remember Allah azza wa jal visible to what koala Hakata.
Time and again Allah tells us to remember him. the remembrance of Allah just gives you strength. So brothers and sisters, I urge you and myself, as we approach this prayer of ours, to remember Allah, remember him. Remember why you're here? What your purpose in life is, who's on your side, or whose side you're on. remember Allah azza wa jal as we leave this place, greet one another remember Allah azza wa jal make sure that it's for his sake, as you go home and you embrace your family. Thank Allah Subhana Allah for his blessings for the safety that you have for greed, for the freedom and liberty that we have. And remember Allah azza wa jal
this coming Tuesday if you decide to go and I want you to do it, because you can.
Not because it's trendy. If you decide to go and cast your vote. remember Allah azza wa jal
and make sure whatever you choose is something that pleases Allah azza wa jal, if you want to protest and say you do not believe that
anyone really deserves your vote. It's up to you. I'm not going to stand here and say, No, no, you have to do it. But if you are doing it out of conscience, and you're doing it out of conviction, and you're doing it to make a statement, not because you're apathetic and not because you just simply don't care, because we cannot afford not to care. If you're doing it for a reason, then by all means, it's within your right to do it. But remember Allah azza wa jal, remember that you will have to answer for any decision that you make. remember Allah azza wa jal in whatever you do.
remember Allah and ask Allah to remember us and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to take care of us. ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide us and ask Allah Subhana Allah to preserve us. Please be mindful of the fact that there will be daylight saving.
