De Nova, come on a la hora Sula, who occupies 1000 ottima. My dear brothers and sisters, last Friday of the month of Ramadan, many people have multiple questions. And I intend to address some of these questions in today's photo.
One of the questions that many people ask, have we made it was last night later to Qatar was the night before data to put the roses the 21st I had a strong feeling that it was the 23rd another person says no, I saw the signs on the morning of the 25th that must have been another person comes in says what if it's tonight? The 29th what is the last night? That's what a researcher says? Every year is the 29th.
And nobody really knows only a loss of Hannah what Allah knows. But are you someone who's seeking later to? Or someone who's seeking the pleasure of a loyal soldier?
Are you someone who's seeking a shortcut? Or are you someone who's seeking to worship Allah subhanaw taala even if you live at three years,
if Allah subhanaw taala says that Ramadan is to be extended at three years,
you as a believer servant of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah devoted to Allah loves online as messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you would have no choice but to extend your fasting and your Ramadan spirit for 83 years.
Ramadan is not over.
This is my second answer for the other question, Is it over? It's not over.
And people ask another question that goes along with this one is eight.
And when the scholars in the past were asked when is read, they would say the day your sins are forgiven?
You Go figure.
Eight is the day your sins are forgiven? Can any one of us say when that day is?
So until the last day on which Allah Subhana Allah, Allah grants those who maintain their sincerity and those who pursued a loss of Hannah what Alice pleasure and those who are asking for a loss of hello to Alice forgiveness until the very last moment, they are granted forgiveness and acceptance because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, mon sama Ramadan amen and yT serban or fear on the home as
a man and
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says who ever whosoever fasts the month of Ramadan, all of it all the way till the very last day maintains his fasting and maintains his Ramadan spirit.
All of his previous sins will be washed off they will be forgiven.
And whoever prays Burma late
all the way until the very last day.
His previous sins will be forgiven. had them or they'll be here so Lola Hey Heather, my wife Debbie la hora, sola.
Posada, la hora Sula.
Another question that many people ask or remark, I'm very sad, I'm depressed, I'm upset or I didn't do much the Ramadan is over. Why should you be upset? Why should you be depressed? Why should you be sad? Allah Subhana Allah didn't ask us to be sad. It wasn't part of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam guidance, where have you read the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam towards the end of Ramadan, he will give a very depressing quote. And he will be crying and the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim will all be said, No, as a matter of fact, on the eve of read, we are told to celebrate the remembrance of Allah and rejoice.
Every day that goes by every single day of Ramadan,
calls for celebration.
Every day that you live in a loss of hearts, Allah gives you the chance to observe fasting and break your fast, gives you a risk to break your fast and gives you the energy and the Enlightenment, to and the motivation to go and pray taraweeh
and do good deeds every day of that nature is worthy of celebration. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he saw me for hotel.
For a person who observes fasting, there are two moments of joy
for her and definitely, one moment is when the person breaks his or her fast
and not because of the food.
But because of the accomplishment.
Not because of the variety that they have.
But rather because of the fact that they were able to finish a day of fasting.
There are many people who are not capable of doing that.
Either they are not well spiritually, may Allah Subhana Allah guide them and strengthen them.
Or they are not well, emotionally and psychologically. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, Grant and alfia
say I mean, or they're not well, physically, medically, they can't.
And it takes a toll on them emotionally, as well.
These are three different reasons people can't.
They can't do it.
But you Allah subhanaw taala gave you the ability if you're one of those people, whom Allah azza wa jal has given the ability. So instead of crying about the day that passed, why, so long you have done your part, so long that you have fasted,
and you did your best?
that cause for celebration? That's a moment of joy Allahumma laka swamp allistic after you gave me this,
Praise be to Allah subhanho wa Taala they have Obama of tele tillamook. This is what the prophet teaches us to say every single night. They have Obama of intelligence. This is prophetic.
Right? So the Prophet taught us this.
And then, on the eve of rate, we're told to say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, and rejoice. Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala gave me the ability to fast 29 days, or 28 days, or 27 days and hamdulillah I'm going to continue until the very last day. And when the day of the eighth comes, we're going to go and celebrate and rejoice in the letter Allah by the grace of Allah azza wa jal.
So this calls for celebration.
But again, what is it that we're celebrating the remembrance of Allah, the fact that Allah gave us the ability, right?
Another question that people ask, What's the best thing I can do now that there is only, you know, less than 48 hours left? Perhaps the last few days?
Is it over I didn't do as well as I intended to do or as I wanted to do, or as I had hoped to do in the beginning of the month, and as they say, sometimes you may start weak but what matters the most is that you finish strong.
You go all the way or you go home.
So don't give up. There's still a day left. Still, this is Duma. And there's a special hour today, and tonight is the 29th. It's an odd night, it could very well be later.
This is the finalists stretch. Tomorrow is Saturday, you're off.
Perhaps one of the best things that you can do.
for yourself is catching up now with from now until tomorrow or until the morning of read, catcher.
If you have missed any Salas repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala make commitment and tonight beg alonza for forgiveness cry out to align ask Allah for guidance ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to guide you, to give you the strength to maintain your Salah to give you wisdom to know the value of this
and make a sincere commitment to a loss of Hannah with Allah and Allah will help you
that you will never do this again. And that's it. This is going to be 10 Tonight is the night of Toba the night of repentance. You know we're told in some narrations that on the last night of Ramadan, Allah Subhana Allah forgives the sins and grants emancipation meaning Allah Subhana Allah frees people from Hellfire says these people, as many as he did for the whole month.
Every night Lila Hirotaka, every night The Prophet said, Allah Subhana Allah forgives or frees people from Hellfire
except the very last night of Ramadan, Allah Subhan Allah to Allah forgives and freeze as many as you did throughout the whole month. So your chance is even higher on the very last night of Ramadan.
So catch up with your Salah, and make Toba. If you missed any days for ask a loss of habitat if you intentionally missed any days, repent to Allah azza wa jal, it's a grave sin, ask Allah for forgiveness. You have, if anything, the month of Ramadan, brothers and sisters have made you and I realize that we really don't need much food. People started the month eating a lot over eating, and then they just got tired of it. Even the variety of people get tired of them, like you know, people in the beginning of the month they eat every night in there. And I tell people do so because it's sooner, and then they get tired of it. And they're like, Oh, I can do without the month of Ramadan
is you and I discover
that we don't need as much sleep as we think we need. Or as much food as we think we are as much conversations of vain talk or as much entertainment as I don't know about you. But that's, that's one of the greatest lessons I got from this month.
We can do with very little. And we can manage to do many things that we think that we're not capable of.
If there is a commitment, so try to catch up. So and if you miss any days,
then make a determination that the very next day, the day for it, you can't fast but it's starting from Monday, you're going to
make it up because it's a debt and you repent to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And if you are if you ask for fetch when the scholars say you have to pay 50 or something for that you have to pay a penalty, then paint, do it. Don't don't end up standing before a loss of Hannah who was to Allah and by the way, be very thankful that allows which did not take your soul on that day that you broke your fast intentionally.
Cinema from Allah Subhana
cinema from Allah subhanaw taala so repent, to
repent to Allah. And don't listen to shape on saying oh there is, you know, there is a hadith that I read somewhere where whoever breaks his or her fast intentionally in the month of Ramadan, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will not accept anything from them. This is from Shere Khan.
It's a serious with repent to Allah, Allah azza wa jal except Stuber, there is no sin that is greater, that the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala does not encompass. Allah just says that he was gay. I don't know about you. But in the month of Ramadan, I kept hearing it all over. Every night there is a verse in the Quran that invites us to repent to Allah. Allah azza wa jal tells his prophet not be everybody to my servants, and me and Allah fudo Rahim that I am the most forgiving and most merciful.
Yeah, anybody say to them all Mohammed, all my servants will have wronged themselves
who have gone beyond limits, who have transgressed against their own souls, sort of who Allah unfussy him. Allah doesn't say, say to my servants who have believed.
It does say that in some verses, but in this particular verse,
which the scholars considered to be
the verse that brings should bring most hope for people the most hopeful verse
50, Tabitha bolia eva da la de la sorrowful, say to them, all my servers who have transgressed against themselves or wronged themselves and committed
All kinds of sins.
Kanako Muhammad, Allah, Allah,
Allah somehow prohibits and Allah Subhana Allah for this, these people, law prohibits these people have forbids them from
disappearing from the mercy of Allah do not give up on the mercy of Allah. In the law for Indeed Allah Nova Jamia, he forgives all sins. So no matter what your violation or your sin was, and this month, asked a lot of forgiveness, and he will forgive you, and make a commitment to make up for it, and to start making up for it right away. Catch up with your fasting if you if that's the case. And if you were blessed to finish the whole month, you did not miss any day and hamdulillah. then guess what, catch up, make a commitment to fast six days from the month of show what, six days, you could start on Monday, and go all the way to Saturday, and you're done. Or you can do Mondays and
Thursdays throughout the month of chawan. Or you can do any days, or you can do weekends, if that's more convenient, but do six days, any six days from the month of show well to be added to your 29 or 30 days of the month of Ramadan. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam promises that it is as if you have fasted the whole year.
Whoever finishes the month of Ramadan, and add six more days. And by the way, I urge every one of us to do it this year. I don't want to say I challenge. But I urge every single one of us to do it this year. You know why? Because I learned a great lesson a couple of days ago from one of my teachers and one of my mentors, he said encourage your people to defeat chiffon twice.
Or as many times as they can. So I said how so he said if they for instance, make a pledge to donate or if they want to give their the cotton filter or something, teach them and you yourself do it at a little bit more more than the bare minimum. throw in a little more for yourself for your effort, even if it's $1. So if it's $10 make it 11. So I said why he said because when you do something
against what shaytan tells you, you have defeated him once. But when you go and add a little more.
Now you have really knocked him out. That's a knockout punch.
in boxing, what do they say? Where are people? One Two? is a one two, don't just give him a one. knock him out with a second one.
So you fast the month of Ramadan.
Right? Don't be of these people that say hamdulillah Ramadan is over Oh, I can't wait.
Like you are serving the whole month. Come on.
There are people who who don't have anything to break their fast with.
There they are almost in, in, they're forced to be fasting through throughout the whole year. One day they eat one day, they don't have anything to eat
mellows out to help them were spoiled. Just push yourself a little more and add six more days from shut and knock shaytan out
and be amongst those who are fasting for the whole year.
Right. So if you're done with your fasting, catch up with your core and
if you are like some of us who are still not where they're supposed to be they're behind today is your day set up somewhere. And make sure that you catch up and you finish the recitation of the poor and don't wait until the very last moment. Don't be amongst those people who will come so close but then not not finished. who ended up coming on the last day of Ramadan saying Yeah, somehow Allah, you know, I couldn't do it. I stopped at the 28th just
how painful 40 more pages than you would have been done. So today catch up.
If you're not where you are supposed to be if you're not at the 28th just today, you make sure that you reach that or you're at the 29th be ahead so that by tomorrow you're done.
And if you're busy today because you have to go to work, then make sure that tomorrow after you stay in the masjid, lock yourself up. Bring someone with you. Chain yourself to the member if you have to.
You're not gonna die. You're off tomorrow. Stay from after surgery until the who prays over here and if you have to stay until also to stay until awesome and finish your plan and go home and then after that sleep tomorrow is the last day
but to finish up, catch up with your
sadhaka xhaka. If you haven't done that catch up with that. May Allah Subhana Allah accept from you and I
ask Allah subhanaw taala to make you an AI amongst those who listen and follow the best of where they listen to please move forward and fill in the gaps in sha Allah Allah
Hi there, what's up? Y'all know Holly welcome first off
Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam O Allah evadne, living in a sofa that my dear brothers and sisters, I said, Please catch up, catch up with your cat if you haven't done us a cat. And when you calculate your as a cat do a little extra just to be on the safe side, I'm not saying you have to, I'm just saying, Do it for your own good. I'm just recommending it.
And if you haven't, if you feel like you have not either given enough sadhaka or if you feel like you have made a lot of mistakes, right, give sadaqa maybe that will make up for any shortcomings. Any days where you're fasting was not where it's supposed to be. And that also the loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam obligated us to give us a capital filter. And the capital filter is meant it has multiple, the wisdom behind it has multiple reasons. One of the reasons it is to finally saw him, it is
an explanation for any deficiencies in your fasting is we all fasted, but did we fast, really, I mean, from saying some, you know, indecent or saying, you know, using improper language or getting at I mean, there are all kinds of blemishes and deficiencies in our fastening, sort of so lots of services gives a carton filter that will wipe out these little offenses that can diminish the reward of your fasting. And the cattle filter or filter is mandatory. And, and the person responsible for it is the head of the household.
And he or she should pay for every single member of their household. Everyone, even newborn babies, even if they were born one hour before the day of rate,
you pay the cat, and we estimate it to be $10 per person, at least, if you were to do more barakallahu May Allah subhanaw taala Bless you, right. So that's what's a catheter, and now is the time for it, it's getting very critical, you need to make sure that you do it before eat prayer. After eat prayer is sort of
the timing for it is now and the idea is that we collected and we send it to where it's needed the most so that people can have it before on the night of eat, or on the day of rate.
And people will be fed on your behalf insha Allah azzawajal Alhamdulillah I remember in the old days, you used to have to go get your filter,
you know, and you have to go and find somebody and all of that and delivered now Allah Subhana Allah blessed us with brothers and sisters who are dedicated who are taking this task on our behalf May Allah Subhana Allah bless him, they made it very convenient. You go put it in the in the box designated for as a cattle filter, right or if you put it in an envelope right on it's a cattle filter, make sure that you do that. Right. And it will be taken care of on your behalf by the law eater Allah.
I also want to say brothers and sisters, and I must say this if I may real quick share with you something that I shared with with the congregation the other day just for the sake of those who are not around to stories moved in with him was one of the brothers that came Few days ago and ended up or Allah Subhana Allah mentioned so many times, in many places, at least by the way in 30 places a large region promises to give us back
and more places Allah azza wa jal says do give give emphasis to Malcolm Mandela de
Sena who wants to learn the world's origin.
The other day I was overwhelmed certain headin like Allahu Akbar.
When the Sahaba when the companions heard these verses, they were responsive. When Allah said Mandela de la when he said I will give gives a la carte Hasson carrozza, Hassan, Allah doesn't he? But he that's what he called it. A Buddha came to the prophet and he said, Allah has asked us for a loan Rasulullah said Yeah.
He gave us the wealth. He's asking us for the Lord messenger of Allah. He said yes, so that he could forgive your sins. It's just a loss of habitat is giving you the opportunity. I would have just said O Messenger of Allah, I have indeed given my property
I lend it to Allah. I'm gonna get it and after lend it means Allah will pay you back one and after, but Allah is so generous that he will give you in this life. So but that goes back to his wife who was in the property, and he doesn't enter the property. He stands outside and he calls her out.
Be in email. Hi, it's a blue Daddy.
Daddy and he goes on and on.
He uses poetry. He says come out to you and the children. This doesn't belong to us anymore. I have lent I have given it to a loss of habitat as alone. she yells from inside not screaming or anything but celebrating she's like Mashallah cola happy hearing or fara. May Allah give you glad tidings of clear and Farah Muskoka dama de wala phi. And she goes on and on praising him and praising Allah and thanking Him. And then she goes to her children, and she says Empty your pockets, from all the fruits that you picked up from this property. It doesn't belong to us anyone anymore. And she empties their pockets in their mouth from everything and she pulls them out. This is a data of the
alarm. And, and I will tell her they love her and and other companions who came to the Prophet anytime. So respond. So one of the brothers the other day heard a verse from the poor, and we have a lot of promises, that if you give something, he will give you a back. And he's like, Well, I have to act on this. He went in, he did it
the very next day within 24 hours.
And I don't want to mention again, how much it was, what he did, and how much he got back. It's overwhelming.
So I mentioned the story.
Shortly after I left the machine, one of the brothers came caught up with me. He said, Well, ah Gosh, if the same thing happened to me yesterday, one of the brothers who prays with us and never a person came to me and he said, Well, La Jolla chef, whatever you said, it's happened to me the other day. I said well, it doesn't surprise me. This is the most generous
don't test a lot just do it and has an imbecile he says Allah promises in the end 30 times he had to repeat it so many times why or law and shavonne Allah mentions in the one time that she upon promises you poverty, he scares you of poverty don't give, don't give, you're gonna go broke. But Allah in 30 places in the Quran and has been busted. It says How shameful that we believe she upon and we don't believe a lot
Subhana Allah do it for your own sake. And one of the best causes that you can give to is the masjid and that real quick I'll tell you why. Because the masjid is like putting it in a mutual fund, especially this machine. Because we invest everywhere for Allah everywhere.
For the Miss on on Wednesdays we take care of the refugees and people who come here and all that so we give them a sack cane and we give for our tonight we invite you to come and listen to what we have accomplished. There are people accepting Islam coming into Islam, PR prison outreach, or at a school where we have last night celebrating the graduation of to an 11 year old boy and a 12 year old girl finished memorization of the Quran. And for the past five years we have been every single year graduating one to two individuals who finished the memorization of all of it happening here.
And in many other programs, so you're investing in all of them.
