what about my dear brothers and sisters, lots of Hannah who to Allah has blessed us
with the ability
and the opportunity to witness the month of Ramadan,
and hopefully fulfill our obligation or to the best of our ability during the month of Ramadan.
And for many, many, many of us, for many people here and everywhere in the world, another opportunity and another obligation, another duty
is approaching, which is hedging. And I have spoken before on my blog about the importance of it, and encouraged anyone who has not performed Hajj to do it, if they possess the means to do it.
And we explained, you know what, what what we mean by because sometimes people think that the means means
to have the perfect opportunity, the basically the perfect setting, everything has to be perfect, the weather has to be convenient, you know, so there's a difference between you having the ability to do it, and having the basically convenience to do it, it may not be the most convenient. But if you have the ability, then it becomes an obligation on you. And you should do it as soon as possible before that the ability is taken away from you, or before your ability is diminished, whether it's physically or financially. All right, so the the ability in the idea that you have, you have some time, it doesn't mean that you should just, you know, wait for the perfect conditions, perfect
weather conditions, perfect in every way.
There will be some inconvenience. And compared to what people used to go through, I'm not going to even say hundreds or 1000s of years ago, you know,
compared to what people used to go through a
few decades ago. It's
it's really like a hike in any of the
place places that we have around here. Compared to that.
Right. So, so HUD has been made very easy, very convenient. Some people might say well, but it costs a lot more. Yes, it does. And that's, that's the cost of, of luxury and convenience and all of that. But again, nonetheless, you don't have to go with the most luxurious or the most expensive. But do your research. And if you have the ability, if you have the means if you have the threshold, if you have enough to get you from here to go perform hajj, and then come back, then you're obligated to do so as soon as possible. And you should not delay it. There are no guarantees in life. So, so here we are between two obligations. But that's not what I want to focus on today. And I urge you to go for
those again, who knows someone or who are themselves interested to learn more about how to go back to that hotel, and listen to it, and I hope that you will find
something useful in Charlottetown. What I wanted to focus on today was another beautiful gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala taught to us
mastered and taught to us by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is the opportunity to volunteer,
to volunteer to voluntarily do things. A bad Allah subhanaw taala did not say these are the things that you have to do and that's the only time you can worship.
Some other traditions, that's how it was no. And Islam.
A Bader is available and open 24 seven,
literally, around the clock, you can be in a state of Nevada, and you should be to the best of your ability in the state of Nevada
as much as you can.
For one, we live very short lives anyways.
So, we should make most of it, whatever we can, we should, whatever we can do, to fulfill our primary purpose for which Allah Subhana Allah created us, which is why Malhotra Jean Noel ilaria, Boone, Allah said I have not created human beings and jinn, except to for the sake of worshiping me. That is their, that is their mission. That is the purpose. That is their duty. That's what their that's their work. That's where they are, what they're supposed to do. Anything else is secondary. Anything else is complimentary. Anything else is just something that we do to get by, but a better worshipping a lot, knowing more so just believing in Allah and then committing ourselves to his
worship is what Allah Subhana Allah created us for period. That's what what this life is all about.
So Allah subhanaw taala, we should commit to a loss of habitat or we should worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah,
Ramadan, and then chawan and delta and the hedger and mojarra, and the rest of the year.
Now, someone might say, but you know, it's very difficult for me to be at the same level. Yes, of course.
Nonetheless, we should not be worshipers only in one or certain seasons. We should not be seasonal worshipers.
And someone might say well, my commitment to my duties is not as as great I mean, in the month of Ramadan, I was able to pull it off and hamdulillah I was able to do maybe I did not do 100% but I did maybe 90
well that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us and urges to do totowa to volunteer. Now FL is another term that is used to voluntarily do things right. And that that door is open. It's open to Ramadan outside 24 seven, so that so there you have a chance to complement whatever deficiency whatever shortcomings you have in your obligatory bad. Now you can compensate for it through what through doing things voluntarily.
And so minffordd Lila helina, Mashable, and Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Allah Allah Allah in a minute, he was generally what? Yes sir Allah subhanho wa Taala sha Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ma
ma ma, ma ma ma ma le. Now I feel let me just see what pseudonym means Miss Leah. Mr. hubbardton

We're here at the coup de Han, Lita, Holika Jana.
So Allah Subhana Allah has again blessed us that he allowed us in the province allies and taught us in addition to the obligatory
duties that we have to fulfill, like praying five
times a day and fasting the month of Ramadan and performing hajj and giving zakat.
There are similar acts that are voluntarily that we are encouraged to do on our own.
You see, when you're obligated to do something,
that means that if you don't do it, you will be punished. So sometimes we do. And maybe for some people, it's all the time we do whatever we are obligated to do to evade and to avoid being punished.
So that's, maybe that's what you're going to get, you're not going to be punished. But how about the reward? How about gender? Okay, you mean, you may be able to avoid Hellfire?
Right, by fulfilling your obligation? But how about gender? And how about higher places and gender? How are we going to achieve that? And what if I, because no matter how hard you try,
when it comes to fulfilling our obligations, there will be deficiencies, there will be shortcomings, how am I going to compensate for it? Because I don't have to answer for that. So Allah subhanaw taala allowed us again, as I said, we have the opportunity is given to us it's open 24 seven, to do what is known as soft or
to voluntarily worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and do extra, extra, we call them extra, but they're really not extra, except in some cases, they're very essential. The province of Allah and Islam always did the Salalah. And so how do the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, whenever they have the opportunity, they jumped on them.
And you will notice that they don't take much effort. They don't take much time from us.
But they could be right, the
the braking or the tipping
element, you may come on the day of judgment and you find that your scale is is balanced, pretty much you don't have and there could be that one voluntary, you know, voluntary act of worship, that you have done. As a matter of fact, there could be that one moment in which you decided to do something less of Hamlet and as I said, because when you do something voluntarily, you are its most sincere.
Right? It could be that one thing that you need on the Day of Judgment desperately. The day when people who come on that day and feel that they have fallen short, they wish they can go back to dounia
and fulfill or add more to their everybody. By the way, even those who fulfilled all of their obligations. When they come on the Day of Judgment. They wish they can go back and do more. They wish they have prayed more. They wish that they have given more extra beyond that obligation. Right. They wish that they have you know, done O'Meara's, they wish that they have did they have done Vicar of Allah subhanaw taala they wish that they have physically volunteered to help and assist all of these Earth acts of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam imagine when people see on the Day of Judgment, the man the prophesied, said I'm told us about who came.
Right. Imagine seeing this person imagine you and I stand before Allah Subhana Allah, amongst the billions of of people whom Allah Subhana Allah created from the time of Adam until the day of judgment, and that one person, whom the prophets of Allah and incident told us about is called
to be given
to be given forgiveness and to be given grant agenda.
And then everybody's looking, okay, what is the one deed? What did he do to earn that, and then we're told that, Oh, this is the man that the Prophet told us about who removed a branch of a tree out of the way out of the path of people.
lilla he wasn't the janitor, he was not hired full time staff to do this to clean
or to remove this object. All he was he was someone full, full of courtesy, and care. And he thought to himself, I should remove this out of the path of people. It will hurt somebody. And he took that as as a personal
obligation and we just moved it.
He was morally motivated to do it.
And he didn't say By the way, it wasn't his job. He didn't say it wasn't my job. He said, I'll take care of it.
And nobody had to beg him. Nobody had to, you know, to come and say, Oh, you we're not doing this. He just did it on his own. May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with him. Honey, Allah Whoa, congratulations. And then what's going to happen to those of us who had opportunities to help and assist?
How I wish
How I wish when I had the opportunity,
It will just take him a few seconds, few seconds gret you know few seconds
you get for it eternal life in general
Raka attain the prophecy tells us that sometimes it's the five daily prayers if you fulfill them, they
hope they will ensure that you you're not gonna go to hell fine.
But it could be to archives extra tools that you have done in the middle of the night or during the day that guarantee you agenda
or highest ranks in Jannah Allah subhanho wa Taala or even the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala
the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to be very when it comes to fulfilling their obligations, they did not joke about that
they did not joke about duties and obligations,
there the competition amongst the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was not even in doing some voluntary acts, no, it was not in volunteering, it was an out performing each other out doing their competition was who can do beyond
what everybody else is doing.
Right, they did not give as much as you know, oh, so and so gave, you know, the competition between them was I will do more.
Now not duties and obligations that is that was done.
I will volunteer not as much as everybody else, I will be the best the most, the one who is always there. Whenever I have time. I'll dedicate that to Allah subhanho wa Taala and sometimes our sacrifice some of my own my own comfort in my own needs and my own peace of union.
Officer vilella him Allah.
So this is this is where they The competition was taking place. See that that's a different league altogether. Or the Allahumma so
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the in the Hadith says when it comes to who will help match up dBc in a matter of two.
Colorado in a nova scotia
right and this is the point that I want to focus on what may or
may not have been one of the our supplications and hopefully you made this drop, you've hopefully made it as much as you could. One of one of the prayers that the Prophet salallahu alayhi Salaam taught us and maybe we repeated in the month of Ramadan is to be loved by Allah subhanaw taala and to love Allah. And Allah as we did in this hadith told us
what it takes to be loved by a loss of habitat, one of the shortest one of the quickest one of the best ways to earn the love of Allah azza wa jal is to do a weapon.
Voluntary acts of worship. Now I fell by the way does not is not restricted only to praying to work as
a means to give, to help to assist.
To fast, no
The prophet SAW Selim said Allah said Hector Hippo until I love this person. Allah loves this individual in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said I used to spend some nights with the Prophet come to me to Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam and
I say to whom we will do a lot when you taught the obey, from A to B will do he will hija de Vaca Listen, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
came to the prophet and he said, I brought him water, some water to make will do and to take care of his needs all along and he will send them so the Prophet said to me, robbia asked me anything, asked me something.
asked me for a favor anything. So he said, as a newcomer, I
had his opportunity. He said messenger of Allah, I want to be guaranteed to be with you in general, I want you to companionship in general.
Right? Because again, we said, entering gender. Avoiding Hellfire is one thing, entering gender is another thing now being in the highest ranks of gender or being in the company of the prophets of Allah.
That's a different level. So he said, I want to be with you. He had his opportunity. He didn't ask for money. He didn't ask for promotion. He did not ask for you know anything. He's not asked for property he asked for
after focus people. So he said to him, I will tell you about Alec is there
Anything else? The processor meant something that I could do for you and dunia. Thank you for bringing me the water so I can do something in return. What can I do for you? He said, he said, pulled to hula duck, or Sula, that's it. I don't have anything else. I don't want anything. Just that's all I want. Insisting about the Aloha. So he said
that in the NFC code, because
that's the case then I need your help. I need your help. robia makes you do it as much as you can. Meaning, do as much as many people as you can.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Basically with this, he opened the opportunity for all of us. For all of us, who want to be in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so loved by Allah subhanho wa Taala earned the competitivity the being in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Jeddah. do extra hakuhodo la sala de

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that there isn't any Muslim that prays every day 12 Records extra
voluntarily other than the four are not the five daily prayers, not the 17 mandatory minimum that everyone should should be praying, no 12 additional, right, to be for pleasure, right for before the war and two after the war two after negative two after Asia
except that Allah subhanho wa Taala will build for him a house in general.
So this is just to show how extra deeds voluntary these will get us will earn us the love of Allah Subhana Allah and the highest places in general.
We should be looking for opportunities. What else can I it's not, oh, Ramadan is over 100 I'm going to take a break until the next season.
We should be looking for things to do. I want to do more. I want to do more. Right. And of course needless to say, My dear brothers and sisters that have one of the greatest opportunities that we have in this month is to fast the six days of Shabbat. So as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said whoever has the most complete fasting of the month of Ramadan, and
observes fasting for six days from the month of chawan, forgotten NEMA or it will be written for him or it is as if He fasted he or she fasted for the whole year. This is something that that you know,
throughout history, Muslims have been very committed to do so you have any six days of show Well, you can fast Mondays you can do any combination of days. You can fast them all together, you can fast Mondays and Thursdays, you know for the next three three weeks. But do it as soon as you can.
Because most people wait until the last week and then
and then they miss out. You know I know many cases where people you know at the end of the month, they managed to Fast Five days and then they miss up
to all six days and do them as soon as you can, inshallah, to Allah May Allah subhanaw taala accept our deeds and forgive our sins of anatomy.
