Women made up a la hora Sula, who occupies 1000 oedema, my dear brothers, my respect to sisters, it's summertime.
And summertime comes with many opportunities. But it also it comes with some risks and dangers, especially for children, youth.
And it's actually considered statistically to be the deadliest time of the year for teens.
The month of June, July and August
are the deadliest, there is an increase any youth violence, accidents of all kinds,
heat strokes, drowning accidents, may Allah subhanaw taala protect and preserve our children. So today I intend to talk not necessarily about these kinds of dangers and how and why should parents should be vigilant and careful. And all safety measures should be taken into consideration and how we should actually make sure that our children are busy with activities that will help their growth intellectually and spiritually. And how important it is to make sure that summer time is also time for
not for a break from education, but even for you know, more education of a different type and activities and programs. Right? Many parents are aware of this, and many are able they have the resources to sign their children up with different summer programs. But not everyone can afford it. So that is something that we can inshallah to Allah maybe discuss on a Friday night program. And maybe we can insha Allah azza wa jal also invite everyone in the community to join some of our summer programs that we have very limited summer programs. But nonetheless, it's better than having nothing, we still have many COVID restrictions in place. So we're very limited with what we can do.
So that is a discussion that we can have. And many parents, again, are already
aware of the fact that, you know, they need to do something they need to keep their children busy. But what I wanted to discuss today is ways of making sure that our children are protected from a spiritual point of view. Because you see, they deal with internal and external factors and dangerous, right. And sometimes the external visible factors can be easily detected or, you know, foreseen or they can be, they can be managed, but it is the invisible the things that we sometimes don't pay attention to, that we need to be really aware of. And no matter what we do, we still
you know, we won't be able to be with them 24/7 Whether it's summer time or throughout the school year, right. So, as use of users father Alehissalaam, Yakov said right,
and Yaqoob suffered the loss, temporary loss of two of his children
use of disappeared or was actually kidnapped.
Vinnie I mean his other son was taken.
So as he was considering letting bieniemy and going again with his brothers, he said for law high you don't have you on Oahu or hammock
Right. I mean, he made a declaration. And there is a lesson in it for all of us for all of us parents and those who provide care for anyone that needs care, be it children or adults phala who halen have them a whole lot hamre I mean, there has we have to have certainty in this concept that Allah azza wa jal is the best of protectors.
It is not our vigilance. It is not our resources. It is not our capabilities. It is not our, you know, amazing, outstanding parenting standards and skills, but rather Allah Subhana Allah to Allah Sophia from Allah azza wa jal, and it is Allah azza wa jal that provides care.
From conception, all the way until the last day of each and every single one of us it's Allah azza wa jal, who is the best Hatfield protector and maintainers of Hannah with Allah, he's only one that can preserve us for long Hold on. Hello, hello, hello. I mean, there has been and there will continue to be stages where we won't be able to do much for our children. Who was there for them in the embryonic stages? Not us. We can do whatever we want. We can watch whatever, you know, mothers can watch whatever they consume when they're pregnant. But ultimately, it's ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.
It's Allah azza wa jal for Allah who don't have them on well who are hamara Hamid. So this is the first point that I would like to emphasize that we all need to remember this fella who Hey, you don't have him on Oahu or hemraj Hemi. So let's turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and seeking protection for ourselves and for our loved ones, especially for those who are most vulnerable, or children. So let's begin this this period this summer time, with this in mind, for Allahu halen hablo who are hemraj human being on Allah subhana wa Tada site
and connecting with Allah azza wa jal and maintaining our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala is the best insurance
for our safety and the safety of our children. For Allahu halen have Ulan well who are humble rahimian, Allah subhanaw taala is the best
of protectors and He is the Most Merciful subhanho wa taala. Number two, it is important that we instill in our children
this connection that they should have with Allah subhanho wa Taala not only should we ourselves be, you know, sometimes life experiences and maturity compels you to come to this conclusion that no one can protect except Allah subhanaw taala but we very often failed to pass that on to our children, to make them understand that and that can only happen if we can communicate it not only in our actions, but also verbally we can communicate that teach them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did that.
There was one time even Ibis Radi Allahu Anhu said when I was a little child, I rode with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, these car rides
any opportunity for you to, you know, do something with your child or your nephew or your younger sibling. It's an opportunity to have conversations.
So the province of Allahu alayhi wa sallam said when I wrote my bass rather said, when I wrote with the prophesy, salam, he was behind the prophesies, writing with him. So the province has said LEM,
took advantage of this opportunity. And he said, Yeah, hey, little young man, listen, in your limo Colima. I want to teach you some concepts, and I want you to pay attention to it. And part of what he taught him was, it felt the La Jolla fomka He said to him, be mindful of Allah, preserve Allah, preserve the commandments of Allah. It's a very deep statement. If Allah
be mindful of Allah and preserve Allah subhanaw taala as commandments and be aware of Allah subhanho wa Taala hold yourself accountable to the highest of authorities and standards. Allah subhanaw taala be mindful of Allah. Yeah, * in Allah azza wa jal will protect you.
You preserve Allah, or Allah's commandments rather, Allah azza wa jal will preserve you.
If Allah He said, preserve Allah or be mindful of Allah, did you do to Jack you will find Him
in your direction, or you will find him leading you guiding you.
And then until the end of the video, this is a long Hadith, but even Abbas memorize it. He remembered probably Alon, and he was a little child, the Prophet, I was tempted to say, well, he's just 10
Right? He's just 10 or nine, he must have been like nine or 10 when this took place, he didn't say he just nine No, no, he introduced this concept to him. So it's very important. Number two, it's very important that
We pass this on to them, right? Teach them this. Number three, da
da, turning to Allah subhanaw taala we find the Quran, right in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala teaches us to make dua for our family members and for our children, many people, many of us and I say this all the time that we sometimes pray for, for blessings from Allah subhanaw taala, that Allah azza wa jal gives it to us. But once we have it, we fail to pray for it. We see you can't pray for for it to be in your life, then fail to pray for it to be protected and blessed.
This is a failure. Right? This is a failure code, you know that very often caused by the distractions of bliss. We can't We can't take it for granted. So single single people pray for a spouse and then once Allah Subhana Allah give them a spouse they forget to pray for that spouse, you're gonna need to continue to pray.
Right couples pray for children once Allah Subhana Allah give them children. Once Allah gives them children, they forget to pray for their children, for their protection and for their blessings. But the Quran teaches us and I've been hablan I mean, as far as you know, with the reaction of Kurata Aryan grant us satisfaction and comfort to our eyes. Mitch, Jana, you want to make sure that you continue to make this dua it's not something that you make only on the 27th night of Ramadan or you know, once in a lifetime or when you go to forehead your camera constantly we need to pray to make this drop very frequently. Oh Allah so that your continue to your family continues to be a source of
comfort, not a source of anxiety
and panic attacks, but rather a source of comfort you're content with where your children are gonna have learned I mean as well as you know with react in a Kurata island
it teaches us to pray for their for their spiritual well being
rubbish name okay masala to mean Duryea to Allah make me of those who established the prayers as well as of my children as well. I want my children to be as righteous if not more righteous than I am. So we pray for their righteousness. Allah subhanaw taala teaches us through Prophet Ibrahim Ali is set up to pray for their welfare as well for their well being and for their welfare. Right. He says Rebecca in the US continuing to Rhea DbyD in reserve and debate tickle Moharram Robin Eliakim of Salah fragile determina Nikita, we like him. The point here is not to go over every little word but again, it's to understand the concept praying for their welfare and for their risk and not to
take that for granted not to say much Allah I'm well off I'm very I'm in good shape I'm in good health I can provide.
It's not us that we provide Allah azza wa jal in the Quran says no no to zuku como el no, no to Zuko, como el? No notice we both we provide for you and then we provide for them and for you. It is Allah subhana wa Tada. He is a Razzaq. subhanaw taala so we need to constantly do with ourselves and teach our children pray for their well being for their welfare, for their guidance for their spiritual well being for their safety, for their happiness and for their joy. The Quran is filled with these beautiful prayers, right?
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us as well to pray for their safety. And the province has sent him for instance, teaches us he used to do this with his children. And he used to do this for his grandchildren. Right? He would place his hands on Allahu Allah. He was sitting on the forehead of Hassan and Hussein, for instance, and we'll pray for them or Edo coma bikini Murthy, litem McCauley, che upon no harm, when we call the Hainan lamb
so he would he would seek refuge in Allah subhanaw taala and Allah's Perfect Words that Allah azza wa jal protects them. Right? From
and from any any you know any organism or any insect or any be it's a virus or an animal of any kind.
That Allah protects him from everything. Right? I mean Cooley is a llama and on top of that from evil eyes. Unfortunately, we live in a time where very few people say Masha Allah or they remember Allah subhanho wa taala. So the promises seldom used to do this. Right?
What you want to call it Tavi, that's fine, but this is the proper way of doing it, that you make dua that Allah azza wa jal protects him.
And also the prophesy Selim used to pray for that Allah Subhana Allah loves them Allahumma inni or a BOMA for a Bahama? He would say that oh Allah I indeed love them, or Allah loved them. Pray that Allah Subhana Allah I ask Allah azza wa jal to love my children love me love my children. I asked Allah as we get to love all of our children, ALLAH SubhanA
Water and we can't take that for granted. Make them worthy of your love, Oh Allah, make them the type of individuals that love you and that you love them and whomever Allah subhanaw taala loves will be protected.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also taught us to pray for their intellectual growth.
Alright, you know, summertime again is one of these periods where sometimes it may even parents have conflict, oh, let them just take a break Kalasa and throughout the whole year, they were bombarded with assignments and homeworks and things, you know, summertime should be a break and unfortunately, many children suffer,
you know, a decline in their intellectual and, you know, capabilities, forget many of the subjects and concepts that they and this is this should not be the case.
Right. So, the promise I'll send them, you know, may derive for our best Allahumma Aleem Hickmott I will, oh Allah teach him wisdom, increase him in knowledge. So, he became at a very early age by the time he was 13. He was he was qualified
to live in Ibis to be in the Council of Roma. Imagine the head of the state, choosing your 13 year old son to be a member of his Shura Council.
And it wasn't because he was the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, because of them had other cousins, but rather because of his level of knowledge and proficiency.
And when some people said to Omar, you know, why is this youth with us? Here sitting, discussing serious matters,
right at the level of the of the Muslim estate,
Amaro the alarm and wanted to show them and he gave them a test, he said, Elijah and Missoula who will fit. What do you understand from the sewer. And each one of them gave their interpretation or their understanding their literal understanding of it. And when it was finally the turn of had been Abbas, when I bought said what well, this surah was none other than it was actually a declaration
to the prophesy of Selim that his mission has come to an end. And that his death and departure was, was coming soon.
probably Allah, Allah said, that's exactly what I understood from it. That's what I understand from it. This is why he's here.
He is qualified. Right? And so a scholar said, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prepared him, he may do out for him. He prepared him for this role, while the Allahu Allah so it is important that we raise the bars for them. And ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless to bless them and increase them in knowledge and wisdom and wisdom. Ask Allah azza wa jal to protect and preserve our children. I've been at Taco Bell Mina in the Kansas semi or rather you know in the ghetto Rahim Akoto had a lady similar to myself, Allah who were looking for sulfuryl we have to look them in the hole for Rahim.
Al hamdu Lillahi wa salatu salam ala Abadi, Ludhiana, Stata, we're back. Inshallah, one tip that I want to leave you with is try to inshallah this summer,
to teach your child
a day, or two or three, as many as you think they can handle.
And help them engage and connect with a book of Allah, encourage them and motivate them.
I'm not asking us to pressure them or rather encourage them and motivate, motivate them so that they can connect with the book of Allah subhanaw taala. For it's the best, you know, source of guidance that they can have, but teach them prayers and supplications, especially the ones that the Prophet Salam taught us to say on a regular basis, or every time they leave we leave the house or we leave together. You know the DUA that we should say Bismillah taka to Allah Allahu Allah, Allah Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah how many out there we cannot be LA or Zilla. Bismillah hella de la Duromax mi che and let us not just teach them and help them memorize it but rather let's help them understand
it connect with it say it like they mean it. Like it's their own words. Understand what it means understand what they're asking Allah subhanaw taala to do.
I would just point this out and conclude inshallah to Allah. Many
say that. I used to say things or I used to do things, but because I was taught how to do it.
But I was never told like to do it.
I was never taught what it should mean to me. Right
So it is important in this day and age, my dear brothers and sisters, that our children not only understand what they're saying and what they're doing, but the significance of it and connect with it on a personal level, so that they can have a strong and deep connection with Allah subhanaw taala. So when they're exposed to anything at a later stage, that could actually raise some doubts in their hearts, or mess up their minds about Allah or the existence of Allah subhanaw taala or about the authenticity of this religion or about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is truthfulness, their fortified they have their own solid grounds
May Allah Subhan Allah to Allah protect them. May Allah subhanaw taala bless them Robina attina Malankara hematoma Hey, Emily and Allah Shuddha Roberta la Kaluga Anna bad headaches and no habla Kurama in the candle will help Allah melody when an animal Simeon was still life even if you feel seen, or if you say any religion was the mean.
