Wagga Marina

O'Hara Marina hakima,

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

Yamuna Yamanaka,

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

Peter Navarro, amin, Hamada

00:04:09--> 00:04:13

y Fabiana, Annabella. Tina, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:04:14--> 00:04:17

so many things that one would want to discuss

00:04:18--> 00:04:21

on this day, so many irrelevant issues.

00:04:22--> 00:04:27

But the one thing that the entire nation has been talking about for the past week or so.

00:04:31--> 00:04:36

And the aftermath of the tragic shooting of Newton, Connecticut,

00:04:37--> 00:04:43

where 22 innocent children of the age of six and maximum seven

00:04:45--> 00:04:47

were shot to death in their classrooms

00:04:50--> 00:04:53

where they're supposed to be receiving

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

education, where they're supposed to be protected, where they're where they're supposed to be safe.

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

In sound,

00:05:02--> 00:05:03

they were shocked to death.

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

And I'm not interested in discussing

00:05:08--> 00:05:11

the details of this horrific

00:05:12--> 00:05:13

criminal act.

00:05:15--> 00:05:19

Nor am I qualified to give any analysis

00:05:22--> 00:05:23

of what led to it.

00:05:25--> 00:05:37

And, and and or engage you or myself in a debate about various policies, policies and political issues that many politicians are engaging in.

00:05:38--> 00:05:41

So today's talk was not about gun control.

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

And today, what today is about,

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

it's not about

00:05:49--> 00:05:51

proposing a solution

00:05:52--> 00:05:55

for these kind of unfortunate incidents. In fact,

00:05:57--> 00:06:08

within half an hour of that, of that crime, within half an hour of that crime, and I forgot whether it was before or after, same day, within half an hour

00:06:09--> 00:06:11

1000s of miles away in China.

00:06:13--> 00:06:18

And mental mentally disturbed individual walked into a school, a public school

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

with knives,

00:06:22--> 00:06:31

killing 20 Sorry, I said 22 children died in Newtown, it wasn't 22 it was 20. But in China, 22 children

00:06:32--> 00:06:35

with a knife, no guns involved.

00:06:36--> 00:06:53

So you can take over guns that people have, that will not stop a criminal minded individual. from carrying out these kinds of actions. The unfortunate part is in today's world, we won't be able to stop these kind of incidents. Now, we may be able to reduce them,

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

we may be able to prevent some of them.

00:06:59--> 00:07:02

If we address the real issues,

00:07:03--> 00:07:09

everybody is overlooking. And I know some people will say that is probably the these violence

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

programs,

00:07:13--> 00:07:14

and video games

00:07:16--> 00:07:25

and entertainment media that our children are into these days, all these violent videos that they watch that desensitizes them.

00:07:27--> 00:07:36

But again, I don't want to get into that. There is something deeper, something that comes before all of this brothers and sisters, that nobody's talking about.

00:07:38--> 00:07:39

Family Values.

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

family structure.

00:07:43--> 00:07:49

This individual, it is known that this man who carried out

00:07:52--> 00:07:57

this again, horrible, horrible Act

00:07:58--> 00:08:00

came from a broken family.

00:08:02--> 00:08:04

His parents were divorced. And I'm not saying every

00:08:06--> 00:08:15

case of divorce is going to produce something like this. But we know statistics show beyond any reasonable doubt. There's plenty of studies out there. In fact,

00:08:16--> 00:08:18

there is one study that suggests

00:08:19--> 00:08:20

that

00:08:21--> 00:08:24

three out of four, that is 75%

00:08:26--> 00:08:30

of criminals, especially young

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

men,

00:08:33--> 00:08:37

75% of them came from broken homes.

00:08:39--> 00:08:41

households where the father was not present.

00:08:43--> 00:08:54

This is something very serious, because in today's world in today's society, whether it's here in the United States of America or other parts of the world, right, this is becoming the norm.

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

This is becoming the norm.

00:08:58--> 00:09:03

Family is under threat. Family Values are under attack.

00:09:05--> 00:09:09

And as Muslims, not only do we have to set a good example.

00:09:11--> 00:09:16

For other people, we also have to advocate

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

for the importance of family and family values.

00:09:22--> 00:09:27

And for anyone who may say wait a minute, this doesn't apply to us. I'm hamdulillah. We Muslims and we don't.

00:09:28--> 00:09:30

The sad reality is that

00:09:32--> 00:09:36

these statistics and numbers that apply to other communities

00:09:37--> 00:09:38

apply to us.

00:09:40--> 00:09:41

Most of them,

00:09:42--> 00:09:58

some people come in they say well divorce rate in our communities, not 60% as it is here in America. Well, it's 40%. have, you know, not, you know, this is as far as we know, and I'm sure that it's not 40% it's a little worse than that.

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

A little worse than them.

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

So, big deal.

00:10:04--> 00:10:09

10% difference 15% difference, big deal. It's becoming a norm.

00:10:10--> 00:10:13

It's becoming a norm brothers and sisters.

00:10:14--> 00:10:20

Right? When, in my own, in my own experience

00:10:22--> 00:10:28

when three to four out of 10 marriages end in divorce within such a short period of time

00:10:30--> 00:10:33

in families where children are present

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

that is not good news.

00:10:39--> 00:10:45

And there are so many factors that I won't be able to address this broad and very important issue in this football.

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

But let me just shed light on two points.

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

First point

00:10:53--> 00:11:00

is lack of understanding of the importance of family, lack of sense of responsibility.

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

And that's what this book was about.

00:11:05--> 00:11:09

Many people start a family, former family without understanding

00:11:12--> 00:11:18

how serious this is. Allah Subhana Allah in the Quran talks about those who are

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

the manifest true

00:11:21--> 00:11:24

losers, the real losers.

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

Just to simplify, that is

00:11:28--> 00:11:43

one of the most terrifying hires in the Quran. To me when I look at it, Allah subhana wa tada to say to them, that the true losers called eternal hustling, the ones who are broke, the ones who are bankrupt, those who lose everything.

00:11:44--> 00:11:52

And Medina hustle and Fusarium, Yama, pm are those who lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection.

00:11:53--> 00:12:02

They come up with a day of judgment, they could have been the most successful people in this life, but they come on the day of judgment and they get nothing they lose themselves.

00:12:04--> 00:12:11

to shame upon and to his ways and therefore the dwellers of Hellfire, and they lose their families.

00:12:12--> 00:12:15

They fail and fulfilling one of the basic

00:12:16--> 00:12:17

duties

00:12:19--> 00:12:26

of members of any household and loss of habitat in the Quran says to us, oh, you who believe Yeah, you know,

00:12:28--> 00:12:29

protect yourselves

00:12:30--> 00:12:32

and your families,

00:12:33--> 00:12:35

from the fire

00:12:37--> 00:12:47

from hell, protect yourself, it is your responsibility or brother, it is your responsibility or sister. It is your responsibility, our responsibility

00:12:48--> 00:12:51

as couples whom Allah Subhana Allah blessed

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

first, with the ability

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

to get married, second,

00:12:59--> 00:13:06

with with a spouse, with a righteous spouse where we made a conscious choice.

00:13:08--> 00:13:11

Third, with children when so many people

00:13:12--> 00:13:16

suffer because they were deprived from this NEMA three things.

00:13:17--> 00:13:40

Right there. If any couple were blessed with children, right there, they have three numbers and allows parents it would remind us of this, one of those in one of the prophetic statements. The Prophet says that Allah subhana wa tada will bring his servants and he would remind him of his favorites, one of the failures that he would remind him of would be didn't I allow you to get married?

00:13:42--> 00:13:43

Marriage

00:13:44--> 00:13:44

and family.

00:13:46--> 00:13:59

This is one of the minimus of Allah subhana wa Tada. It is our duty to protect ourselves and the members of our house of Allah subhanho wa Taala praises His Prophet, Mary, for being so

00:14:00--> 00:14:01

keen on this.

00:14:03--> 00:14:15

And where did this married? Salaam learn this? He learned it from one of the best fathers ever. One of the best fathers in history, Ibrahim aneesa, who himself

00:14:17--> 00:14:25

right was tested, unfortunately, with a horrible father. But he himself became a wonderful, amazing father.

00:14:27--> 00:14:33

So he smiled, and he said, I'm Allah Subhana Allah praise him one of the qualities for which he was praising.

00:14:34--> 00:14:46

And I'm sure that he has so many great qualities Eileen celeb, is married and has great qualities. The Quran, however, highlights two or three of them, one of which is one

00:14:48--> 00:14:50

where the Configure tab is now

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

in the hook and I'm assuming Libyan workout model will be select USA or Canada and there will be in

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

Hello, Kevin de Vaca rasuna nebia work and I mo Allahu alayhi salatu was the cat you are kinda in the lobby Maria

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

right, mentioned in the book, Ishmael

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

who was true,

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

and his promise and fulfilling his promise and fulfilling the covenant.

00:15:22--> 00:15:38

And he was indeed, a messenger and a profit from a loss of Hanna with Adam. And of his qualities, that is the fact that he used to demand command order enjoin upon his family, salah and Sokka.

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

This is someone who understands the responsibility when

00:15:44--> 00:15:45

I was at a youth camp.

00:15:47--> 00:15:53

And a young man of the age of 25, we were having one of those intimate discussions.

00:15:54--> 00:16:01

A young man of 25 year old, young, professional, amazing. The pride of his parents

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

shared with me

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

how

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

it hurts him,

00:16:08--> 00:16:13

when he remembers that his father did not care

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

to wake him up for future prayer.

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

Or did not follow up and asked him when he was growing up, whether he prayed or not.

00:16:26--> 00:16:42

I said, you know, most most of us found that just to be honest, I'm going to be honest with you. Most of us complaint, most of us, we used to be annoyed. Right? When our parents were like, did you pray Did you pray? He said she didn't understand.

00:16:44--> 00:17:03

I find I find that to be in it to be very painful. I say Why? Because he said, Now I realize as much as my father cared about taking care of me and, and feeding me and supporting my education. He didn't care about my salvation and Africa.

00:17:05--> 00:17:08

He didn't care about my spiritual well being.

00:17:09--> 00:17:11

So everything else doesn't matter.

00:17:12--> 00:17:18

And I have to basically calm him down and tell him listen, he did his best, maybe he did it. No, you cannot hold this against you. In

00:17:21--> 00:17:29

fact, you need to go and, and thank him for the good that he did. And whatever he didn't know out of ignorance, or whatever he did, you can't hold that against him.

00:17:30--> 00:17:46

Like this, and hamdulillah that Allah subhanaw taala, the end of the day, so Allah who guides on Hamdulillah, that Allah subhanaw taala has brought you to this point where you realize this, but imagine, imagine you do everything that you can for your child, but you neglect this very important aspect.

00:17:48--> 00:17:55

And imagine, if you and your child don't find the value or the importance of this until it's too late.

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

until it's too late.

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

I have seen with my own eyes, parents, or a parent who would cry at the funeral of his own child and adult child.

00:18:12--> 00:18:17

And of course, devastated that his child died at a very early age.

00:18:19--> 00:18:21

But the real pain is not

00:18:23--> 00:18:33

because of the fact that he died, but because of the fact that he died upon a path that was that was not pleasing to a loss of Hanna without

00:18:36--> 00:18:42

the real pain is because of the fact that that child's never entered the masjid

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

until he was a janazah

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

till he was dead

00:18:49--> 00:18:57

because of the fact that he won't have someone that he can count on to make draw for him as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:19:01--> 00:19:05

so brothers and sisters, this is very important to us.

00:19:07--> 00:19:10

And the recent visit to the juvenile hall

00:19:12--> 00:19:15

I met with eight and nine year olds,

00:19:17--> 00:19:18

one of whom was Muslim

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

from Muslim family.

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

And it was painful for me to see someone

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

there

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

that identified himself

00:19:32--> 00:19:38

as Muslim, because I didn't I didn't expect that I was wondering whether I'm gonna run into a Muslim or not. Right. But I saw that

00:19:40--> 00:19:46

it was very painful to see someone that comes from our community. They're

00:19:47--> 00:19:52

spending a lot and um, how many months in the juvenile hall locked up,

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

got into the system

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

because the parents did not understand

00:20:01--> 00:20:05

They have a responsibility towards him and his siblings.

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

The parents who didn't understand that

00:20:10--> 00:20:11

children needed stability.

00:20:12--> 00:20:14

Children need maturity.

00:20:15--> 00:20:28

Children need spiritual nurturing, and they need Islam. More than anything else. I say this and asked a lot. So just to make you and I have those who listen and follow the message, they listen to a cold or hot or cold and soft

00:20:46--> 00:20:50

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was salam, O Allah, it

00:20:51--> 00:20:54

was a close examination.

00:20:57--> 00:21:01

When we are close look at the student of the Prophet sallallahu the prophetic tradition,

00:21:02--> 00:21:05

right, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam paid attention

00:21:07--> 00:21:08

to the members of his household

00:21:10--> 00:21:50

and particularly to the children of his household, his own children, cousins, grandchildren, stepchildren, I live in salatu salam, he was well aware of their affairs. He was engaged. He was relevant sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They could relate to him la salatu salam, he was able to relate to them. He came down to their level. And he brought them at certain occasions to higher level and then select himself. He was fully engaged. Because many people Unfortunately, most or or most of those who are guilty of neglecting their children are many,

00:21:52--> 00:21:56

many we think that we should not get involved until us high school and college.

00:21:57--> 00:22:24

By then it's too late. In fact, I was talking to an Imam who was involved in family counseling. And he was sharing with me something that I think Malik and Leonardo, one of the early scholars was talking about when a man came to me and said, advice me. Right? What can I do? For my child? Allah has blessed me and I'm a parent right now. And he asked him, he said, How old is your child? He said, he said, I think he's few weeks old, few weeks old, and he's born.

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

So he said, it's too late.

00:22:27--> 00:22:33

And you get the point. I mean, it's not late, it's never late. But he said to him, it's too late. You get so you should have come to me before he got married.

00:22:34--> 00:22:58

If you're really concerned about the child, I'm just saying, you know, it may be a bit of an exaggeration. So imagine when someone comes and says, oh, help me out with my daughter, or with my son, how old are they? They're in high school, it's a bit late. At that time, we just have to still by all means go and do intervention and get serious counseling whatever they need, right? And make lots and lots and lots of

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

but the damage has been done.

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

So brothers and sisters,

00:23:07--> 00:23:10

the earlier you start the better it is.

00:23:11--> 00:23:28

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in tune, he was aware. He was well aware of what was surrounding them in magic. Consider this, a young man walks to the Prophet sallallahu It was not even his own child, and approaches the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was comfortable enough.

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

Right?

00:23:31--> 00:23:32

Maybe I should reword that.

00:23:33--> 00:23:42

He may he may not have been fully comfortable. I'm sure that he was nervous. But he was comfortable enough to approach the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:23:44--> 00:23:58

to help him address this issue. And he said he believes in a young man. We know this is an authentic narration. He approached the province otherwise and asked him for permission, because he was struggling and struggling with his sexual desire that he had.

00:23:59--> 00:24:12

The point here is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was accessible. And this man felt comfortable approaching the messenger will last a little while and he was saying in public. And when What did the Prophet of the Lord send him to do? He said, young man get closer.

00:24:14--> 00:24:27

Get closer, he didn't chase him out of the message. He said get closer. And the prophet SAW said and reasoned with him, had a dialogue, had a discussion, counseled him, placed his hand on his chest and he prayed for him.

00:24:29--> 00:24:42

And that was enough of a healing and a cure for the problem that he had. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got involved and entertained young children. He would say Salaam to them specifically

00:24:43--> 00:24:56

in a specific salon for the children or he will be involved about where his pet bird dies and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes in and basically comforts him

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

in comfort

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

Yeah, I may have messed up I don't know what happened to it. Exactly how did it die? Tell me

00:25:08--> 00:25:21

what's up he was thinking that the Prophet was not making fun of him he was he was asked him open up What happened? How did your pet bird die? Tell me how did you know what happened? He gave him attention he gave him he knew that his birth died.

00:25:23--> 00:25:37

He took interest someone loved him. And when they're younger the prophet SAW him with with carry them on his back on a soldier center. crawl around on his knees, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the best human being ever

00:25:39--> 00:25:43

on his back, and they would pretend that he is their camel.

00:25:45--> 00:26:01

Right? And the Prophet civilize them does not ruin his their funnel or say to them, Oh, don't call me camel. He says my German German Kuma actually the best of camels is your camera. You guys got the best camera. So that pretend play of there's the province of the law. Listen, I'm guessing.

00:26:02--> 00:26:24

Genuinely, genuinely, he wasn't pretending the province. I said him genuinely gets involved with it, and allows them to have fun. So make sure that when he was praying in his sujood, one of his children or one of his grandchildren came, saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in that position and mounted a client on the back of the prophet SAW a lot in his home and sat down

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

there so his camel

00:26:28--> 00:26:35

and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam stayed in that position prolonged his his sujood. So much so that some of us have a we're very concerned.

00:26:36--> 00:26:38

And when he finished a prayer, he explained to them

00:26:40--> 00:26:54

how that how he didn't want to ruin the fun of his grandchild. He didn't want to ruin his fun. And it's more time for him with a loss of handle and doing things in that state. This is our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:26:56--> 00:26:58

And when I saw the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam,

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

showing compassion and being affectionate to his grandchild, and another narration his son, he said to him, oh, you pay attention to this and you kiss children. I have 10 boys that I had never kissed any one of them. And I thought it was like manly for him.

00:27:18--> 00:27:24

Honey, you know, you have time for this. And you know this is not manly. This is this shows weakness.

00:27:25--> 00:27:29

Right? profitable law that says woman Emily law

00:27:30--> 00:27:35

says What can I do for someone whom Allah azza wa jal has deprived from compassion.

00:27:36--> 00:27:56

You're losing out, you're losing out. And then I have, you know, I have cases where, where a child would come. A young man and a young woman would come and say, I my father had never embraced me the last time that I remember hugging him I that was when I was three or four for 20 years.

00:28:01--> 00:28:09

So brothers and sisters is a big responsibility. Let us learn from the example of the prophet SAW the love and connect with our children before it's too late.

00:28:10--> 00:28:22

Before it's too late, and ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us for what has passed. And ask Allah Subhana Allah to give us success, and, and what's coming ahead of us.

00:28:24--> 00:28:32

As for those who may have paid attention to today being the 21st of

00:28:33--> 00:28:45

December, just want to quickly comment on this today is the 21st day of the 12th month of the year 2012. And we're still here.

00:28:47--> 00:28:48

The world didn't end.

00:28:49--> 00:29:12

Right. And I'm not being you know, sarcastic or facetious. And the minds were right, their world ended. But they were just 700 years off ended in the 13th century, or the 14th century. But for those people who were making fun of this, or those people who may have believed this, I urge you.

00:29:13--> 00:29:22

And if you know anyone, urge them to go and learn their faith and study, first of all day of judgment is no joke and it's not to be taken lightly.

00:29:23--> 00:29:33

And it's made come anytime, right? Our time may end any moment. We don't know. And we have to prepare ourselves for that.

00:29:34--> 00:29:36

Secondly, brothers and sisters,

00:29:37--> 00:30:00

for those who may have considered what if what if Subhana Allah is the only one that knows when the hour will come as a loss of Hannah without an even the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't know and what matters and I conclude with this what matters the most is not when the Day of Judgment is because some of us are obsessed. The science of the day of judging

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

Great to learn them and know about them. Some of us are obsessed with the end of the world. Right? So what if the world ends? Two points? Two points if this is what you would remember out of this book, but it's great two points number one, when a man asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa send a message, or messenger of Allah, when is the hour? When does the Day of Judgment come? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam answered with a question

00:30:26--> 00:30:29

pointing out what matters? He said, What am I?

00:30:31--> 00:30:33

What have you prepared for it?

00:30:34--> 00:30:42

Who cares if it's today or tomorrow? What difference does it make? What have you prepared? Are you ready? That's the question. Are you ready? What have you prepared for it?

00:30:43--> 00:31:10

So that's a question that we need to answer. That's number one. What have we prepared for it? The other thing brothers and sisters, if you're doing your best, continue to do your best. What if? What if it is next week? What if it is in an hour or two or three, the province a little lower instead of in the Hadith, which was authenticated by the scholars, he said in comedy sir, it will be Eddie I had econ phocoena. Famous so far, and you have Risa

00:31:14--> 00:31:19

that if the hour of the day of resurrection starts, the day of judgment, the end of the world starts

00:31:20--> 00:31:27

while one of you has in his hand, a plant that he was planning to plant.

00:31:28--> 00:31:40

Right, small plant that he was about to plant, palm tree takes forever to grow. Right? If he can manage if he can finish that task and plant it, let him do it.

00:31:41--> 00:32:12

Which means we continue to do our best and worship on loss of Hallo with Allah make a difference in this world in which we live and be productive to the last minute. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter, even if we're not going to we plant seeds of goodness, even if we're not going to benefit from the trees in this from the fruits of that tree in this life. Because we count on something bigger on a on an everlasting life. That is the life of the hereafter on the true life. That's how we think as Muslims.

00:32:13--> 00:32:49

And that should be our mindset. I asked him to make you an idol to listen and follow the vessel for the innocent to ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless this message in this community. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to bless the members of this of this community and the members of their households and the youth of this message and I just learned that my Salah, the youth of this Masjid, participated in a basketball tournament and they won second place in that basketball tournament, which which says something about what this community is trying to do for the youth. So May Allah Subhana Allah bless them and protect them. So please do not forget, we are approaching the end of

00:32:49--> 00:33:00

the year in order for you to be able to claim any of your donations he has to be done before the end of the year. Support your message support your message. It is your responsibility and law somehow Allah will bless you probably

00:33:02--> 00:33:04

have been lucky enough to have a narrow vanilla

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

Khurana in the canteen we'll have Allahu

00:33:11--> 00:33:12

00:40:08--> 00:40:10

Long luck well

00:41:22--> 00:41:24

address the real issues.

00:41:25--> 00:41:31

Everybody is overlooking. And I know some people will say that it's probably the least violent

00:41:33--> 00:41:34

programs,

00:41:35--> 00:41:36

and video games

00:41:38--> 00:41:48

and entertainment media, that our children are into these days, all these violent videos that they watch that desensitizes them.

00:41:49--> 00:41:58

But again, I don't want to get into that. There is something deeper, something that comes before all of this brothers and sisters, that nobody's talking about.

00:42:00--> 00:42:01

Family Values,

00:42:03--> 00:42:04

family structure.

00:42:06--> 00:42:11

This individual, it is known that this man who carried out

00:42:14--> 00:42:19

this again, horrible, horrible Act

00:42:20--> 00:42:23

came from a broken family.

00:42:24--> 00:42:26

His parents were divorced. And I'm not saying every

00:42:28--> 00:42:37

case of divorce is going to produce something like this. But we know statistics show beyond any reasonable doubt, there's plenty of studies out there. In fact,

00:42:38--> 00:42:40

there's one study that suggests

00:42:41--> 00:42:42

that

00:42:44--> 00:42:47

three out of four, that is 75%

00:42:48--> 00:42:52

of criminals, especially young

00:42:53--> 00:42:54

men,

00:42:56--> 00:42:59

75% of them came from broken homes.

00:43:01--> 00:43:03

How households where the father was not present.

00:43:05--> 00:43:16

This is something very serious, because in today's world, in today's society, whether it's here in the United States of America or other parts of the world, right, this is becoming the norm.

00:43:18--> 00:43:19

This is becoming the norm.

00:43:21--> 00:43:25

Family is under threat. Family Values are under attack.

00:43:28--> 00:43:32

And as Muslims, not only do we have to set a good example,

00:43:34--> 00:43:38

for other people, we also have to advocate

00:43:39--> 00:43:42

for the importance of family and family values.

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

And for anyone who may say, wait a minute, this doesn't apply to us. I'm hamdulillah. We Muslims, and we don't.

00:43:50--> 00:43:53

The sad reality is that

00:43:54--> 00:43:58

these statistics and numbers that apply to other communities

00:43:59--> 00:44:00

apply to us.

00:44:02--> 00:44:03

Most of them,

00:44:04--> 00:44:24

some people come and they say, well, divorce rate in our community is about 60% as it is here in America. Well, it's 40%. How do you know? Not? You know, this is as far as we know. And I'm sure that it's not 40% it's a little worse than that a little worse than that. So, big deal.

00:44:26--> 00:44:31

10% difference 15% difference, big deal. It's becoming a norm.

00:44:33--> 00:44:35

It's becoming a norm brothers and sisters.

00:44:36--> 00:44:43

Right. When, in my own in my own experience,

00:44:44--> 00:44:50

when three to four out of 10 marriages end in divorce within such a short period of time.

00:44:52--> 00:44:55

In families where children are present

00:44:57--> 00:44:58

that is not good news.

00:45:01--> 00:45:07

And there are so many factors that I won't be able to address this broad and very important issue in this hospital.

00:45:09--> 00:45:12

But let me just shed light on two points.

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

First point

00:45:16--> 00:45:22

is lack of understanding of the importance of family, lack of sense of responsibility.

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

And that's what this book was about.

00:45:27--> 00:45:32

Many people start a family, former family without understanding

00:45:34--> 00:45:40

how serious this is a loss of Subhana Allah in the Quran talks about those who are

00:45:41--> 00:45:43

the manifest true

00:45:44--> 00:45:46

losers, the real losers.

00:45:48--> 00:45:50

Just to simplify, that is

00:45:51--> 00:46:05

one of the most terrifying hires in the Quran. To me when I look at it, Allah subhana wa tada to say to them, that the true losers come in and the ones who are broke the ones who are bankrupt those who lose everything.

00:46:06--> 00:46:14

And Medina hustle and Fusarium, Yama, pm are those who lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection.

00:46:15--> 00:46:24

They come up with a day of judgment, they could have been the most successful people in this life, but they come on the day of judgment and they get nothing they lose themselves,

00:46:26--> 00:46:33

to shame upon and to his ways, and they're from the dwellers of Hellfire, and they lose their families.

00:46:34--> 00:46:37

They fail and fulfilling one of the basic

00:46:39--> 00:46:40

duties

00:46:42--> 00:46:49

of members of any household and loss of habitat in the Quran says to us, oh, you who believe? Yeah, you know,

00:46:50--> 00:46:51

protect yourselves

00:46:53--> 00:46:54

and your families,

00:46:56--> 00:46:57

from the fire

00:46:59--> 00:47:09

from hell, protect yourself, it is your responsibility or brother, it is your responsibility or sister, it is your responsibility, our responsibility

00:47:11--> 00:47:13

as couples whom Allah Subhana, Allah blessed

00:47:15--> 00:47:17

first, with the ability

00:47:18--> 00:47:20

to get married, second,

00:47:21--> 00:47:28

with with a spouse, with a righteous spouse, where we made a conscious choice.

00:47:30--> 00:47:33

Third, with children, when so many people

00:47:35--> 00:47:39

suffer because they were deprived from this number three things.

00:47:40--> 00:48:03

Right right there. If any couple were blessed with children, right there, they have three numbers and allows parents to remind us of this, one of those and one of the prophetic statements. The Prophet says that Allah subhanho wa Taala will bring his servants and he would remind him of his favorites, one of the failures that he would remind him of would be didn't I allow you to get married?

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

Marriage

00:48:06--> 00:48:07

and family.

00:48:09--> 00:48:21

This is one of the neuromas of Allah subhana wa Tada. It is our duty to protect ourselves and the members of our house of Allah subhanho wa Taala praises His Prophet is married for being so

00:48:23--> 00:48:24

keen on this.

00:48:25--> 00:48:38

And where did this married? Salaam learn this? He learned it from one of the best fathers ever. One of the best fathers in history, Ibrahim and his son, who himself

00:48:39--> 00:48:47

right was tested, unfortunately, with a horrible father. But he himself became a wonderful, amazing father.

00:48:49--> 00:48:55

So he smiled and he said I'm a Muslim cannot Allah praise him one of the qualities for which he was praising the poor and

00:48:57--> 00:49:08

and I'm sure that he has so many great qualities I think Sam is married and had great qualities. The Quran however highlights two or three of them. One of which is one

00:49:11--> 00:49:12

where the conflict keytab is Mary

00:49:15--> 00:49:30

in the who cannot monsoon in Libya. Well, Karen Morrow ahavas Salatu was oka oka and gonna be in the Hokkaido saga converted to Kerala Sula, nebia work and Mauro Allahu alayhi. Salatu was the cat you are kinda in the beginner Lee.

00:49:32--> 00:49:35

Right. You mentioned in the book, Ishmael

00:49:37--> 00:49:38

who was true

00:49:39--> 00:49:43

and his promise and fulfilling his promise and fulfilling the covenant.

00:49:44--> 00:49:59

And he was indeed, a messenger and a profit from a loss of Hanna with the ad and of His qualities is the fact that he used to demand command order enjoin upon his family, sama and

00:50:00--> 00:50:00

Daca

00:50:01--> 00:50:05

This is someone who understands the responsibility when

00:50:06--> 00:50:07

I was at a youth camp

00:50:09--> 00:50:10

and a young man

00:50:11--> 00:50:16

of the age of 25, we were having one of those intimate discussions.

00:50:17--> 00:50:23

A young man of 25 year old, young, professional, amazing. The pride of his parents

00:50:24--> 00:50:25

shared with me

00:50:26--> 00:50:27

how

00:50:28--> 00:50:29

it hurts him,

00:50:30--> 00:50:33

when he remembers that his father

00:50:34--> 00:50:35

did not care

00:50:37--> 00:50:39

to wake him up for Frazier prayer,

00:50:40--> 00:50:47

or did not follow up and ask him when he was growing up, whether he prayed or not.

00:50:49--> 00:51:04

I said, you know, most, most of us found that just to be honest, I'm going to be honest with you. Most of us complained, most of us, we used to be annoyed. Right? When our parents were like, did you pray Did you pray? He said she didn't understand.

00:51:06--> 00:51:25

I find I find that to be in it to be very painful. I say Why? Because he said, Now I realize as much as my father cared about taking care of me and, and feeding me and supporting my education, he didn't care about my salvation, and

00:51:28--> 00:51:30

he didn't care about my spiritual well being.

00:51:32--> 00:51:33

So everything else doesn't matter.

00:51:34--> 00:51:40

And I have to basically calm him down and tell him, listen, he did his best, maybe he did it, no, you cannot hold this against you. In

00:51:44--> 00:51:52

fact, you need to go and, and thank him for the good that he did. And whatever he didn't know out of ignorance, or whatever he did, you can hold that against him.

00:51:53--> 00:52:08

Like this, and hamdulillah that Allah subhanaw taala, the end of the day, so Allah who guides on Hamdulillah, that Allah subhanaw taala has brought you to this point where you realize this, but imagine, imagine you do everything that you can for your child, but you neglect this very important aspect.

00:52:11--> 00:52:17

And imagine, if you and your child don't find the value or the importance of this, until it's too late,

00:52:20--> 00:52:21

until it's too late.

00:52:23--> 00:52:33

I have seen with my own eyes, parents are a parent who would cry at the funeral of his own child and adult child.

00:52:34--> 00:52:40

And, of course, devastated that his child died at a very early age.

00:52:41--> 00:52:44

But the real pain is not

00:52:45--> 00:52:56

because of the fact that he died, but because of the fact that he died upon a path that was that was not pleasing to a loss of Hanna without

00:52:59--> 00:53:04

the real pain is because of the fact that that child's never entered the masjid

00:53:05--> 00:53:07

until he was a janazah

00:53:08--> 00:53:09

till he was dead

00:53:11--> 00:53:19

because of the fact that he won't have someone that he can count on to make dua for him as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:53:23--> 00:53:28

so brothers and sisters, this is very important to us.

00:53:29--> 00:53:33

And the recent visit to the juvenile hall

00:53:35--> 00:53:37

I met with eight and nine year olds,

00:53:39--> 00:53:41

one of whom was Muslim,

00:53:42--> 00:53:43

from Muslim family.

00:53:46--> 00:53:48

And it was painful for me to see someone

00:53:49--> 00:53:50

there

00:53:51--> 00:53:53

that identified himself

00:53:54--> 00:54:01

as Muslim, because I did I didn't expect that I was wondering whether I'm going to run into a Muslim or not. Right. But I saw that

00:54:02--> 00:54:08

and it was very painful to see someone that comes from our community. They're

00:54:09--> 00:54:14

spending a lot and and how many months in the juvenile hall locked up,

00:54:16--> 00:54:17

got into the system.

00:54:20--> 00:54:22

Because the parents did not understand

00:54:23--> 00:54:27

that they have a responsibility towards him and his siblings.

00:54:29--> 00:54:31

The parents didn't understand that.

00:54:32--> 00:54:33

Children need a stability.

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

Children need maturity.

00:54:38--> 00:54:50

Children need spiritual nurturing, and they need Islam more than anything else. I say this and asked a lot. So just to make one I have those who listen and follow the vessel. They listened to a cold or hot or cold and soft

00:55:09--> 00:55:12

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was salam, O Allah, it

00:55:14--> 00:55:16

was a close examination.

00:55:19--> 00:55:23

When we are close look at the student of the Prophet sallallahu, the prophetic tradition,

00:55:24--> 00:55:28

right, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam paid attention

00:55:29--> 00:55:31

to the members of his household,

00:55:32--> 00:56:13

and particularly to the children of his household, his own children, cousin's grandchildren, stepchildren, AlLahi Salatu, wa sallam, he was well aware of their affairs, he was engaged, he was relevant sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They could relate to him la salatu salam, he was able to relate to them. He came down to their level, and he brought them certain occasions to higher level and then select with Sir, he was fully engaged. Because many people, unfortunately, most or most of those who are guilty of neglecting their children, or men,

00:56:14--> 00:56:18

many we think that we should not get involved until us high school and college.

00:56:19--> 00:56:46

By then it's too late. In fact, I was talking to an Imam who was involved in family counseling. And he was sharing with me something that I think Malcolm Leonardo, one of the early scholars was talking about when a man came to him and he said, advice me. Right? What can I do? For my child, Allah has blessed me and I'm a parent right now. And he asked him, he said, How old is your child? He said, he said, I think he's few weeks old, few weeks old, and he's born.

00:56:47--> 00:56:48

So he said, it's too late.

00:56:50--> 00:56:55

And you get the point. I mean, it's not late. It's never late. But he said to him, it's too late. You get so you should have come to me before he got married.

00:56:56--> 00:57:21

If you're really concerned about the child, I'm just saying, you know, it may be a bit of an exaggeration. So imagine when someone comes and says, oh, help me out with my daughter, or with my son, how old are they? They're in high school, it's a bit late. At that time, we just have to, still by all means go and do intervention, and get serious counseling whatever they need, right? And make lots and lots and lots of

00:57:24--> 00:57:26

but the damage has been done.

00:57:27--> 00:57:28

So brothers and sisters,

00:57:30--> 00:57:32

the earlier you start, the better it is.

00:57:34--> 00:57:50

The Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was in tune, he was aware. He was well aware of what was surrounding them. Imagine consider this, a young man walks to the prophet SAW Omar It was not even his own child, and approaches the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was comfortable enough.

00:57:52--> 00:57:52

Right?

00:57:53--> 00:57:55

Maybe I should reword that.

00:57:56--> 00:58:04

He may he may not have been fully comfortable. I'm sure that he was nervous. But he was comfortable enough to approach the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:58:06--> 00:58:20

to help him address this issue. And he said he believes in a young man. We know this is an authentic narration. He approached the province otherwise and asked him for permission, because he was struggling struggling with a sexual desire that he had.

00:58:21--> 00:58:35

The point here is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was accessible. And this man felt comfortable approaching the messenger will last a little while and he was saying in public. And when What did the promise when the law was sent him do he said young man get closer?

00:58:36--> 00:58:50

Get closer, he didn't chase him out of the masjid. Or he said get closer. And the prophet SAW said and reasoned with him, had a dialogue, had a discussion, counseled him, place his hand on his chest and he prayed for him.

00:58:51--> 00:59:04

And that was enough of healing in a cure for the problem that he had. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got involved and entertained young children. He would say Salaam to them specifically

00:59:06--> 00:59:09

in a specific salon for the children or he will be involved

00:59:10--> 00:59:18

about where his pet bird dies and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes in and basically comforts him

00:59:20--> 00:59:22

in comforts him

00:59:23--> 00:59:27

Yeah, but I'm a mess. I don't know what happened to it. Exactly. How did it die? Tell me

00:59:30--> 00:59:44

this it was things like that the Prophet was not making fun of him he was he was asked him open up What happened? How did your pet bird die? Tell me how did you know what happened? And he gave him attention he gave it he knew that his birth died.

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

He took interest someone love it was seven and when they're younger the profits on the line same with with carry them on his back on a salon to Santa crawl around on his knees. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the best human being ever

01:00:01--> 01:00:05

on his back, and they would pretend that he is their camel.

01:00:07--> 01:00:23

Right? And the Prophet symbolize him does not ruin his their funnel or say to them, Oh, don't call me camel. He says my German German lucuma actually the best of camels is your camel. You guys got the best camera. So that pretend play of there's the province of the law. Listen, I'm guessing God.

01:00:25--> 01:00:46

Genuinely, genuinely he wasn't pretending the province. I said him genuinely gets involved with it, and allows them to have fun. So make sure that when he was praying in his sujood, one of his children or one of his grandchildren came, saw the prophet SAW a lot of sediment deposition and mounted a client on the back of the prophet SAW a lot in his home and sat down

01:00:48--> 01:00:49

there so his camera

01:00:50--> 01:00:58

and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam stayed in that position prolonged his his sujood. So much so that some of us are habit were very concerned.

01:00:59--> 01:01:01

And when he finished a prayer, he explained to them

01:01:02--> 01:01:16

how that how he didn't want to ruin the fun of his grandchild, he didn't want to ruin his fun. And it's more time for him with a loss of kind of dad and doing it in that state. This is our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

01:01:18--> 01:01:21

And when I saw the province on the law, they send them

01:01:22--> 01:01:38

showing compassion and being affectionate to his grandchild and another narration his son, he said to him, oh, you pay attention to this and you can children. I have 10 boys that I had never kissed any one of them. And I thought it was like manly for him.

01:01:40--> 01:01:46

And he you know, you have time for this. And you know, this is not manly. This is this shows weakness.

01:01:47--> 01:01:50

Right? proximal, Alison says Wilma. Emily

01:01:53--> 01:01:57

says What can I do for someone whom Allah azza wa jal has deprived from compassion.

01:01:59--> 01:02:19

You're losing out, you're losing out. And then I have, you know, I have cases where where a child would come a young man and a young woman would come and say, I my father had never been embraced me the last time that I remember hugging him I that was when I was three or four for 20 years.

01:02:23--> 01:02:31

So brothers and sisters is a big responsibility. Let us learn from the example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And connect with our children before it's too late.

01:02:32--> 01:02:45

Before it's too late, and ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us for what has passed. And ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us success and and what's coming ahead of us.

01:02:46--> 01:02:54

As for those who may have paid attention to today being the 21st of

01:02:55--> 01:03:07

December, just want to quickly comment on this today is the 21st day of the 12th month of the year 2012. And we're still here.

01:03:10--> 01:03:11

The world didn't end.

01:03:12--> 01:03:34

Right. And I'm not being sarcastic or facetious. And the Mayans were right, their world ended. But they were just 700 years off ended in the 13th century, or the 14th century. But for those people who are making fun of this, or those people who may have believed this, I urge you.

01:03:36--> 01:03:44

And if you know anyone, urged them to go and learn their faith and study, first of all day of judgment is no joke, and it's not to be taken lightly.

01:03:45--> 01:03:55

And it's may come anytime, right. Our time may end any moment. We don't know. And we have to prepare ourselves for that.

01:03:56--> 01:03:58

Secondly, brothers and sisters,

01:04:00--> 01:04:40

for those who may have considered what if what if Subhan Allah, the only one that knows when the hour will come as a loss of Hannah without even the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't know and what matters. And I conclude with this, what matters the most is not when the Day of Judgment is because some of us are obsessed, the science of the Day of Judgment, great to learn them and know about them. Some of us are obsessed with the end of the world. Right? So what if the world ends? Two points, two points if this is what you would remember out of this book, but it's great two points. Number one, when a man asks a prophet sallallahu it will send a message or messenger of

01:04:40--> 01:04:46

Allah, when is the hour when does the Day of Judgment come? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam answered with a question

01:04:48--> 01:04:51

pointing out what matters. He said, What

01:04:53--> 01:04:55

What have you prepared for it?

01:04:57--> 01:05:00

Who cares if it's today or tomorrow? What differences

01:05:00--> 01:05:04

Make What have you prepared? Are you ready? That's a question. Are you ready? What have you prepared for it?

01:05:06--> 01:05:32

So that's a question that we need to answer. That's number one. What have we prepared for it? The other thing, brothers and sisters, if you're doing your best, continue to do your best. What if, what if it is next week, what if it is in an hour or two or three, the province a little lower, instead of in the Hadith, which was authenticated by the scholars, he said, in comedy sir, it will be at a hacker conference center for me so far, and

01:05:36--> 01:05:42

that if the hour of the day of resurrection starts, the day of judgment, the end of the world starts,

01:05:43--> 01:05:49

while one of you has in his hand, a plant that he was planning to plant,

01:05:50--> 01:06:02

right, small plant that he was about to plant, palm tree takes forever to grow. Right? If he can manage if he can finish that task and plant it, let him do it.

01:06:04--> 01:06:34

Which means we continue to do our best and worship and loss of Hallo with Allah make a difference in this world in which we live and be productive to the last minute. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter, even if we're not going to we plant seeds of goodness, even if we're not going to benefit from the trees in this from the fruits of that tree in this life. Because we count on something bigger on a on an everlasting life. That is the life of the hereafter on the true life. That's how we think as Muslims.

01:06:35--> 01:07:10

And that should be our mindset. I asked Allah as a joke to make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of who they listen to ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless this message in this community. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to bless the members of this of this community and the members of their households and the use of this message and I just learned that Mashallah they use of this message, participated in a basketball tournament and they won second place in that basketball tournament, which which says something about what this community is trying to do for the youth. So May Allah subhanaw taala blessing and protective so please do not forget, we are

01:07:10--> 01:07:26

approaching the end of the year in order for you to be able to claim any of your donations he has to be done before the end of the year. Support your message support your message. It is your responsibility in law somehow Allah will bless you. Robin at United Jr. has been a philanthropy has been working out enough to have a narrow band
