the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a hadith collected by
ohare Muslim and others very famous Hadith, perhaps maybe
very basic to the level where some of us may not even remember when how old they were when they memorized it
was perhaps, maybe the second, if not the first Hadeeth that anyone would be taught as a child.
So today I want to talk about the basics.
basic tenants of
our religion, Islam.
Many people today is the 15th of Shabbat, according
to a calendar that is based on MOU signing.
A lot of people of course, you know, last night was a special night for sure. Many people asked about what is it that I can do? We're looking for that one night, one day one a special day one a special night, one special hour, where we can do something extraordinary and be set for life or for the year or for the month.
Often people come and say what can I do?
Or what for Allah azza wa jal? Are you taking care of it? No, no, no, I'm not talking about this. I'm talking about something special, something different, something out of the ordinary.
Right. Something that other people don't do. Not realizing
that the basics are more important.
In the eyes of Allah subhana wa tada than anything that I would recommend or anything that someone can suggest to you, or anything that you yourself can improvise or come up with.
When a man came to the prophet SAW that bedroom, came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he asked the Prophet, what is it that Allah Subhana Allah, century with? The prophet SAW some of them told him and he told him to pray five times a day to do this. And every time he mentioned something,
he said a lot. He said, Is there anything else other than the five day life, you know, everything else all the five. And then when he finished the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the man said to the prophet will la isla as he rally him?
By law, I will not do anything more than
I will commit myself to them.
Right, I will get 10 out of 10 I will commit myself to them.
But I will not do anything on
the horizon was a man walked away. He said, EFF law in South Africa, this man is truthful. If he keeps his commitment, then he will be successful.
This shows us the importance of it, because some people what do they take from this? They're like, Oh, you know, they take from it. Oh, I don't need to do anything extra. No, you always need to do extra.
If you really get the fruits. If you commit yourself to the basics, you will find yourself motivated and inspired to do more
What are we taking care of the basics?
What are the basics the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we are told by Abdullah hartog May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with him and his father. He said Samia to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I heard the Messenger of Allah This is where the way one of the strongest
when used in transmitting and narration. When somebody says I heard, meaning he directly heard it from the province of a lot, isn't it? Similar to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a boon I heard him saying
gonial Islam Allah Khan's
Salaam was built upon five, five elements, it was established, it was built upon five elements, Shahada to Allah, Allah, Allah wa.
the testimony of La Ilaha Illa. Allah, there is no god worthy to be worshipped except Allah, the only deity that is worthy to be worshipped. There are other deities, but none of them are equal to a loss of habitat nor any of them deserves to be worshipped. The only one to be worshipped is the creator of Hannah who went to Allah, the Sustainer, the maintainer, the cherish subhanho, wa Taala, a loss of habitat of the Almighty Who created all of us who was unlike any of his creation, and none of his creation is like him. subhanho wa Taala The only one worthy to be worshipped, so to make that testimony, and to commit to it and to believe in it, and to live upon it, and to die upon it.
When Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the son of AB de la the son of
the highest Hashemite,
that amazing man from Christ, a descendant of his Marine, the son of Ibrahim alayhis salam may Allah be May Allah peace be upon all of them, that that mountsorrel Allahu alayhi wa sallam is
truly the Messenger of God, God's last prophet and messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to believe in him.
And to commit to everything
that this statement entails everything.
That whatever it comes from him is nothing but the truth from Allah subhanho wa Taala, that he did not speak of his own desire, but he spoke by the permission, and the will and the authority that Allah Subhana Allah has given him some Allahu alayhi wa sallam that he was truthful in every claim that he made some Allahu alayhi wa sallam and to love Him and to believe in Him and to follow him into humble ones self, Hector, you hacky McAfee Masha your avena home until they make you or Mohammed.
They seek your judgment and whatever disputes or issues they have amongst themselves, the Malaysia doofy emphysema, hello Jemima, they not only do they seek you as a judge or Muhammad and look for your judgment and your opinion and your your decision. No.
Whatever you rule, they will not find any issues with it. In their hearts. They will be totally comfortable with it. They will submit to it. They will surrender themselves to it.
Malaysia doofy unforeseen herrada they will not find any issues, no discomfort.
If they do then they work on themselves they don't second guess you all Mohammed they don't second guess your tradition. You are certain that they don't look down upon it.
By the way, there are people who have done that. During the time of the Prophet Salaam Lavazza for make sense. That means whether he said it or not, you're rejecting it.
Because simply doesn't fit your, your, your your, your tastes, it doesn't just doesn't sit well with you.
So you already made up your mind. So you're going to look for ways to D legitimize or rejects or question the credibility of any source.
There's something wrong with with a spirit with a soul, it's a disease.
It's a disease.
And some people went as far as saying, oh, if if Mohammed ever tells me this, I would have, by the way, a statement like that. Even if you go to as far as saying, If Mohammed didn't like someone, some some and I'm telling you this because now this is becoming public. I'm not I'm not propagating this or anything.
So you might even hear it from people who stand on the pulpit sometimes saying things that are not appropriate
and in some cases blasphemous in nature.
How could any sane person any person that understands or knows his tradition would ever say a statement like this person who said, If Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
the master of the children of
he said, he claims that if the Prophet did not tell him or if the Prophet did not tell him to believe in Jesus, he would reject Muhammad.
level of Subhan Allah here any ignorance or
lack of adapt?
Right? How could any Muslim say something like this?
If Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says something, is to be obeyed, and is to be followed and to be believed in
Allah and when they came to him, and they said, Mohammed, you know, your friend is saying that he went to Jerusalem, and then he went to heaven. And then he came back and said, Ah ha, ha, pasado casada. If he said it, and then you say, let's try to understand it. Let's, let's try to verify it. If it's verified, if the chance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying it is more than 50% 51%, if there is a chance that is 51% true, you have to submit to it. That should be the attitude of the believer. And by the way,
what, one of the great greatest companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, some man from the time of after the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away, and one man came passing by,
by Machado, and he says, oh, how lucky are these eyes that saw the Messenger of Allah. Allah just said, you know, why would any one of you wish
to have witnessed something that Allah subhanaw taala did not allow them to witness.
He said there were people yelling, he's trying to basically be humble and make us realize that is an error that we were born into slept.
Right? He said, there were people who rejects it. So Allah the Prophet, sallAllahu, Alayhi salat, they saw him and they knew that he was the Messenger of Allah. Allah loves it, but because of that kind of attitude and arrogance and ego
they rejected him sal Allahu
Allahu Allah, says Allah azza wa jal cast them on their faces and hellfire.
Afraid that there are people who are born into slip, who have that same disease of arrogance and ego,
who may end up being dragged to Hellfire because of the attitude and the rejection of the authority of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his tradition. So this is the testimony of faith.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Well your common Salah
establishing or praying Salah five times.
By the way, for those who say, No, we don't need the you know Buhari Muslim, we don't need the sun and all that. I tell them by the way, when the Prophet said we have polished Salah How do we know that it's five times? If it wasn't for the Sunnah?
Or when Allah just established Allah How do we know that the Salah that we're establishing is the salaat you see how far one can go?
For those of us who say yeah, if you reject the sooner You're right, it doesn't make sense. Half of the DNA is going to be gone not not half of the DNA entire DNA is going to collapse. There will be no Dean. If it wasn't for Mohammed, Salah Larissa, you and I would have not known what to do how to how to clean ourselves, we would have not known that we need to humble ourselves. So the Prophet says what if Parliament's Allah in establishing the five daily prayers, the five daily prayers before we asked about salata to Serbia, MP MLA and tahajjud we need to commit ourselves to the five daily prayers and make sure that we establish them properly on time as Allah subhanho wa Taala
What is the car in delivering the car willingly and allows that what he tap to deliver the car, he doesn't say to give the car
to deliver it
doesn't belong to you. If you are liable or eligible, however you want to look at it. If you're liable to the car, then your attitude should be.
As was mentioned about some people who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right, seeking the blessings of the Prophet the blessings of Allah and His Prophet. They used to bring their Zakah
they used to adorn there's a cat they used to beautified
packaged nicely, and they would come and they would bring the best of their wealth and present it.
That's what they used to do. That should be the attitude.
There was there was a tribe that was a waiting for the Messenger of Allah to come to collect
for the Messenger of Allah to send someone to collect Zika. And when the man didn't come show up on time, they went out.
And on their way, they went up on their way, some people saw them, they thought they were coming to invade Medina.
And the prophet SAW Selim was about to declare war on them. What Allah Subhana Allah revealed to him in the poor and to
slow down, verify the news. You were living in Abu Dhabi. So they came, they showed up they came, an army came.
And when the Prophet asked him, What are you coming here, they said, messenger of Allah, you're represented representative was supposed to come and collect the car. And then he left without doing it.
They used to give
all of them used to give and the ones who couldn't give a lesson handle transportation for you. So you go back. They did not say Alhamdulillah we're exempt. We don't have to participate. Allah Subhana Allah tells us in the Quran
Illumina demaree has an Elijah Duma amphipod, they turned around they went crying. They were in tears. Allah azza wa jal tells us because they were sad because they couldn't have anything they did not have anything to spend. They did not they did not have anything to give up.
That was the attitude.
That's how Islam reached us. That's how they were able to transform and change the world.
Within a decade,
or whatever it is, okay, that should be the attitude delivered as a willingness to look for opportunities in places like
sama Ramadan and too fast the month of Ramadan, which is coming and we'll talk about that in sha Allah azza wa jal bate and to make pilgrimage to the house of Allah azza wa jal.
Brothers and sisters I ask Allah Subhana Allah to make you and I have those who understand the basics, to understand what Allah Subhana Allah loves the most Let me close by saying the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah the Almighty says, Allah says, Allah tala tala tala v Isla de Vichy in a hub de la mmf turaco la,
my servant will not come closer to me, there is nothing that I love the most more than my servants seeking
my pleasure and coming closer to me than him fulfilling the obligatory elements, whatever I have obligated him to do.
It's very simple. You tell your son, son, I obligate you to do 123 and you go and then you come back and you find him not that he did not do any of them. Or maybe he did one and he didn't do the other two. What did you do wasting your time? Oh, that but I did this and I did that and I watched your car and I did. Okay, all these things are nice. But what I told you to do is more important.
You ignore what I told you what I told you to do and then you go you do your own thing doesn't work like that.
So obviously Allah subhanaw taala told us to do, what are the most important things to him subhanho wa Taala and and fulfilling them and adhering to them. We show our full submission. We show our we show our humanity before Allah azza wa jal.
So let us focus on that. May Allah Subhana Allah help you and I
overcome our weaknesses and our shortcomings in Allah. So just keep us safe and preserve us so that we can reach the month of Ramadan and fast this month and experience it once again and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to accept whatever these we are doing and forgive us for any of our sins aku todo esto para la de when a confessor ferrovia Lacan
Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was salam, ala de la Stata Was that your brothers and sisters there are a couple of
items that I want to talk about.
And then share with you some very important announcements. Item number one is the middle of the month of Shabbat. We're told by now that Allah subhanaw taala examines the deeds of everyone and those who have any grudges or ill feelings against any of their relatives or friends or right any other Muslim and they're cutting them off. husband wife, brother, sister, cousins, Uncle art, it doesn't matter.
Reach out to your loved ones before it's too late. Humble yourself and ask for forgiveness and forgive people
discover the power of forgiveness, the most courageous people. I consider the most courageous people, those who are able to confront their own ill feelings and grudges and anger and hatred or whatever they have resentment
as well as the legitimate feelings. Some people have legitimate feelings. So if you don't know what they did to me, I understand what they did to you. Would it be worse than what was done to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but he is a messenger of Allah. And I tell you, yes, he is the Messenger of Allah, he's our inspiration.
The purest and the greatest soul Don't you want to be as pure and as great as he was? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or at least aspire to to get some of that greatness and all of what it takes is for you just to pardon someone, get over your anger.
There are cases of years people going for years, not weeks or months, but years.
How can anyone live a healthy life
holding on to ill feelings, forgive people, Allah loves forgiveness, he wants to forgive us, but he forgives those who forgive us. Please move forward and fill in the gaps you know, move forward. So do it.
Sit with with yourself
in front of yourself
and get over your anger.
issue or the second point that I want to make is whatever we mentioned of salons and all of that do not do not postpone to do not
put it off.
Don't say I will do it after Ramadan. I will start the shower next year. Once I'm out of harem. You know maybe when I retire or when I'm 40 or 40. You never know. You may not even make it until then. And I'm not trying to scare you or anything but this is the reality. You know two weeks ago I told you about a young student of mine who died in his sleep, don't put it off.
But if you're capable of making Hajji now do it now Sign up now. You haven't done it. If you have a car if you owe anything to a loss of habitat fulfill it now if you have any fasting that you haven't made up make it up now if you're not praying your five daily prayers commits now before it's too late. Don't wait until after your death people start you know, a fun me or what is it called? Is if they have it in this life and we have it in the hereafter I'm not saying don't have fun, but don't let it distract you
from what matters the most.
And I'm only saying this because I love you. Well, I love you and I love myself. So I'm reminding myself and reminding My dear brothers and sisters of what matters the most.
Real quick brothers and sisters, our 25th anniversary, my community if you know my community, the way I know that you would want to be there forever.
I'm not going anywhere. It's not what life's not. I wish I can afford you know getting tickets for everybody getting dinner. We want you to be there so we can share with you what we have been doing. I want to accomplish
