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

Why should I

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

do what I do

00:00:39--> 00:00:39

for production?

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

Coca

00:00:57--> 00:01:00

Cola. Now, what are you waiting

00:01:11--> 00:01:12

for

00:01:16--> 00:01:16

it can be

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

a paragraph or two for some

00:01:24--> 00:01:24

of

00:01:26--> 00:01:30

the what, what shall I mean, it was very good with his assistance

00:01:31--> 00:01:35

must send them while giving a sermon or speech.

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

And that is specifically the phrase

00:01:42--> 00:01:54

a man walked in from his companions and sat down the message of the loves of a long running incident giving them at the benefit of the doubt he asked them, if he had prayed before he sat down, he had prayed programs before he said,

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

the man required

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

the promise

00:02:00--> 00:02:12

to stand up and pray and then sit and listen to the speech, we can learn many lessons from this many lessons, one of which is fatigue may interrupt his homework for

00:02:13--> 00:02:18

a purpose of this major, teaching someone correcting a mistake, pointing something.

00:02:19--> 00:02:27

Another lesson or another point to be taken from this is that the audience or people participating in the jar

00:02:28--> 00:02:46

can only speak to the public and not to each other because another police officer will ever talk to the person next to him, or makes a gesture or shakes as hugs whatever, that will nullify the virtue of their

00:02:47--> 00:02:59

pride. So one has to be careful. As we're having a conversation or speak to the public pointing at something, or responding to a question from him, that would be problematic.

00:03:03--> 00:03:18

Another lesson shows that it is very important for the public to be vigilant and point out anything that needs to be taken care of, even if that requires interrupting the home and many other lessons and rules can be extracted from this.

00:03:19--> 00:03:22

And I will stop right here. But there's instances.

00:03:23--> 00:03:27

It saddens me that sometimes

00:03:28--> 00:03:35

or every now and then we have to make announcement pointing out that we need to observe the sorts of rules and regulations

00:03:36--> 00:03:40

and follow the law

00:03:41--> 00:03:42

and make sure that we do not commit

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

anything that is an Islamic

00:03:47--> 00:04:09

in our endeavor to seek a loss of power without as a pleasure, and get good deeds. Those of us who came to the question on Friday, and those who come on a regular basis, obviously, by the grace of God in the show, but it is their intention to please the last panel that and fulfill their obligation. But we can pursue that

00:04:10--> 00:04:14

while committing things that violate

00:04:15--> 00:04:18

the very purpose for which we're coming in.

00:04:19--> 00:04:24

So brothers and sisters at this one, if anyone had parked his car today,

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

or double parked, blocking someone

00:04:29--> 00:04:35

over part of any of the properties around us where we're not permitted to park, especially the gas station next to us.

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

Please, I give the permission to get out and go and take care of that issue and come back. If your car's parked illegally, most likely you will get a ticket or it will be total. So let's refrain from those kinds of apps. Take the time either converting carpool or park somewhere where it's legal to

00:05:00--> 00:05:14

Part One, and remember that I mean, walk a long distance, you get good deeds for every step, you get a good deed for every step that you get a sin taken away of your record for every step in

00:05:15--> 00:05:16

elevation.

00:05:17--> 00:05:19

So I asked a lot is legit to make use

00:05:20--> 00:05:25

of these rights and obligations? Those who listen to me listen.

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

Yeah.

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

Yeah.

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

In the world

00:05:50--> 00:05:51

are we talking today

00:05:53--> 00:05:54

and it may be due

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

or maybe some might see as constitute

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

an Ico I like to present

00:06:02--> 00:06:06

anytime the most positive way to the best of my ability

00:06:09--> 00:06:14

and there's nothing wrong. In fact, there is something positive about

00:06:15--> 00:06:16

warning

00:06:18--> 00:06:20

people of dangerous

00:06:22--> 00:06:24

and pointing out the negative

00:06:25--> 00:06:29

because in that there is an opportunity for us to protect ourselves

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

and those of us who we care

00:06:33--> 00:06:40

and if there is a better opportunity for us to avoid those dangers, or minimize the risk

00:06:42--> 00:06:44

of being victims of those of those dangers.

00:06:48--> 00:06:49

Summertime is approaching

00:06:51--> 00:06:55

and too many it has already started. And what I mean by that is

00:06:57--> 00:07:05

the summer break that many of our children, many students have and with summertime

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

come many dangerous.

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

So are you armed?

00:07:14--> 00:07:19

Are you ready for the challenges and the dangers of summer?

00:07:21--> 00:07:27

Do you have a plan in place for yourself or your family for your children?

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

And for those who care?

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

Are you aware of some of those dangerous

00:07:37--> 00:07:47

statistics show brothers and sisters that during summer time, there are so many dangers. And you can look them up I'm not going to go into the specifics.

00:07:48--> 00:07:53

But children and vitality increases during summer time.

00:07:55--> 00:07:59

The risk, of course increase them from getting serious

00:08:01--> 00:08:08

and minor injuries because of the fact that they are intelligent, they're involved in many activities.

00:08:10--> 00:08:19

But there are risks that are as dangerous and as critical as those dangers on their health and abundance.

00:08:22--> 00:08:22

As we know

00:08:25--> 00:08:31

when summer time comes, many people shift or change the type of activities that they involve themselves in.

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

And one of those pages are one of those risks

00:08:38--> 00:08:40

is on the health of our children.

00:08:43--> 00:08:45

Some and I'm not talking about

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

Sundarbans in hate strokes,

00:08:51--> 00:08:54

you're aware of those things and most of us are very sensitive to those issues.

00:08:56--> 00:09:00

But um, probably the series and the real the more critical

00:09:01--> 00:09:02

heat stroke,

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

exposure or risk that we put ourselves into,

00:09:08--> 00:09:12

and this life, and most importantly the year after

00:09:16--> 00:09:17

many of our children

00:09:18--> 00:09:22

change their activities, and some due to the

00:09:24--> 00:09:28

fact that their parents are over protected by like going outside of duty because of the heat.

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

Or the dangers are maybe they aren't counted.

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

So it is a well known fact

00:09:36--> 00:09:37

that when children stay home,

00:09:38--> 00:09:42

many of them intelligence and activities or

00:09:43--> 00:09:46

way to entertain themselves like watching TV or

00:09:47--> 00:09:51

surfing the net. And one of the most destructive actually behaviors

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

is to be addicted to video games. And we know what comes with that. But recently which is in the

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

Right.

00:10:01--> 00:10:06

Despite all the attempts to bring awareness about this issue

00:10:07--> 00:10:12

15% of children under 12 in America are obese.

00:10:14--> 00:10:23

And 12% have obesity related diseases that you only hear about in adults, people who are transporting,

00:10:25--> 00:10:28

like diabetes, and heart problems.

00:10:30--> 00:10:35

So we need to be awareness and protect our children, they have rights.

00:10:37--> 00:10:41

We have to help them plan better,

00:10:42--> 00:10:46

and engage them in activities and programs that are much more productive.

00:10:48--> 00:10:54

In addition to this, there are the dangers of Of course, getting injured,

00:10:55--> 00:11:04

or getting kidnapped, if we have not visited, and one thing that I've noticed in the Muslim community, this is very unfortunate.

00:11:05--> 00:11:14

And I'm not trying to scare you here. But I've tried to make you become a little more cautious and careful. Because we can't we live in a time that is very,

00:11:16--> 00:11:20

where people don't have conscious awareness.

00:11:21--> 00:11:48

It is one of those common things that we see when we have activities for the children around the masjid, or outside the apartment or something. parents do not pay attention, and they do not monitor their children, especially those who are under age. And you can't do this. And I don't want to stand here and give you stories, horrible stories of how certain children got either injured, or they were pinned up, because

00:11:49--> 00:11:59

their parents will not pay attention as to preserve all of our children. But brothers and sisters, we have an obligation and we cannot be naive about this.

00:12:01--> 00:12:06

Legally, we are responsible and islamically we are responsible. So we need to pay attention.

00:12:08--> 00:12:23

And not leave your children unattended, especially when we engage in activities and programs for the whole family. Sometimes we get caught up in our own fun in our own conversations. So as we have this kind of programs or activities, I beg you

00:12:25--> 00:12:28

to help us cooperate with us and pay attention to the safety issue.

00:12:31--> 00:12:36

There is another danger that comes with summertime. And that is our kids losing their skills and those

00:12:39--> 00:12:42

skills that they learn during the school year.

00:12:44--> 00:12:49

I don't have to extend how to parent got planned for this extended period of time,

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

two months

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

of free time

00:12:55--> 00:13:03

where children sometimes forget what they have memorized, or what they have learned. And in many cases lose many skills.

00:13:04--> 00:13:10

Brothers and sisters have anything during summertime, our children shouldn't be gaining more knowledge. They should

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

they should be learning more skills.

00:13:18--> 00:13:21

They should not be forgetting the further they memorize during the year.

00:13:22--> 00:13:53

They should not be losing skills. We don't want our children at the end of the summer, when they go back. And they're supposed to be advancing in their schools. We don't want them to be at the same level or below the level that they were at before the sun. So it is our responsibility to set programs and activities. And in many centers and hamdulillah. In many foreign schools, there are these kind of activities and programs. However, the response from the community is very weak.

00:13:54--> 00:13:59

An example that is the program that we have here at the machine that was announced

00:14:03--> 00:14:04

two days a week

00:14:05--> 00:14:08

to help more children retain a learner more

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

summer counts.

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

educational programs.

00:14:16--> 00:14:32

And if you for some reason cannot take part in this. The least you can do is come up either with a program your own personal, custom made program or activity. Get your child to book as long as you book a book in which they can

00:14:33--> 00:14:46

find any information, any valuable information and make sure you have a contract with your child to read this book. Throughout the summertime. Maybe you want to have a list of books that they can read.

00:14:48--> 00:14:51

Maybe you want them to finish reading about the syrup or

00:14:54--> 00:14:57

maybe you want them to learn new skills, any skill

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

but we have to be awareness

00:15:01--> 00:15:11

During summer, most children lose a lot of their skills. And summertime is instead of being a nice break for them to rejuvenate and and regain their strength,

00:15:13--> 00:15:16

it becomes unfortunately at that time setback.

00:15:18--> 00:15:23

Now, the third danger, and this is the one that I want to focus on, is the danger that

00:15:26--> 00:15:27

the danger for the

00:15:28--> 00:15:31

summertime comes with many occasions.

00:15:33--> 00:15:43

Summertime comes with a blessing that is unfortunately misused, and many people are delusional about it.

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

The

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

good thing is

00:15:52--> 00:15:57

that there are two doubters two blessings are lost how God has given people, and many people

00:15:59--> 00:16:03

are unaware of them. And many people are negligent of their

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

health.

00:16:07--> 00:16:24

Many people do not appreciate health, and they do not protect their health, or they do not take care of themselves. And they do not take advantage of their health to get closer to the last panel and do good for themselves until it's either gone, or until it's depressed.

00:16:27--> 00:16:30

And that's why they said that health

00:16:31--> 00:16:34

is a blessing that many people appreciate what is.

00:16:36--> 00:16:37

The other one is

00:16:39--> 00:16:49

free time, for lack of a better term. I don't believe that there is such a thing as free time. But it's free time. Sometimes it is not. Time that is not

00:16:51--> 00:16:52

a time that is not.

00:16:55--> 00:17:01

That is not filled with some obligations and responsibilities.

00:17:02--> 00:17:20

And many of us get those opportunities, brothers and sisters, for believing there is no such thing as free time, for every moment in this life, is an opportunity to get closer to a loss of handling. And at the same time, it is something that you will be asked about. And that's why the problem is

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

that there are four

00:17:27--> 00:17:33

lessons or four elements that are most commonly asked each and every single one of us

00:17:37--> 00:17:37

have types

00:17:40--> 00:17:45

that no one will receive or the Day of Judgment before they're asked about four things.

00:17:46--> 00:17:58

One of actually two of those things has to do with time. What is a good lunch time? What have you done? What have you earned? What legacy Have you invested behind? The second one is you

00:18:01--> 00:18:06

use particular that portion of your life where you are supposed to be most productive?

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

What have you done?

00:18:11--> 00:18:17

Did you take advantage of it or not? I must have I would ask each and every single one of us when you have to prepare us

00:18:20--> 00:18:25

we have to prepare answer time is is a very precious gift and lots of how Allah gives us

00:18:27--> 00:18:31

time also swears by it. And every time time goes

00:18:33--> 00:18:34

with it

00:18:36--> 00:18:38

goes something about us.

00:18:40--> 00:18:53

Time is an opportunity for us to deposit something to deposit some good deeds. And many people that don't do that to the contrary. And instead, they leave some bad and painful

00:18:54--> 00:18:55

memories that they will regret.

00:18:58--> 00:19:02

So we needed to help our children occupy their time something

00:19:03--> 00:19:06

something positive, something constructive.

00:19:08--> 00:19:17

And there are many activities because we leave them without much guidance. This free time wouldn't be

00:19:18--> 00:19:27

actually takes about a month. And there are so many temptations out there. Many of our children learn bad habits during

00:19:28--> 00:19:30

breaks from school.

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

Many more children

00:19:34--> 00:19:43

lose their innocence. During these kind of times. Many of our children deviate from the right path.

00:19:45--> 00:19:53

Many of our children are lost. And in some cases, brothers and sisters some very horrible stories in here. They're lost for them.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

So brothers and sisters, let's be aware of this and let's have a platform. There are all kinds of things

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

Trees, all kinds of programs, all kinds of trips, cows, that we can take advantage of.

00:20:09--> 00:20:15

Last point, I wanted to make brothers and sisters similar maturity, for the family to bond

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

for the family to improve the level of their communication

00:20:22--> 00:20:26

for you and I to know something more, and something new

00:20:27--> 00:20:29

about family values,

00:20:30--> 00:20:32

and the bond that we should have with our families.

00:20:34--> 00:20:36

And those of us who insist

00:20:37--> 00:20:40

on keeping themselves busy with other things

00:20:42--> 00:20:52

during summer time, not give some time for their children and their families. They don't know what there's what they are setting themselves up for.

00:20:54--> 00:21:03

Brothers and sisters, let's take advantage of this time communicating with our children understand where they are, and try to have some

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

bonding time I say this,

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

to make your

00:21:11--> 00:21:13

own lovely.

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

Have a good

00:21:31--> 00:21:40

day. You ever been to sisters, brothers, please move forward and fill in the gaps. I know it's getting stuffy. Make sure that we allow

00:21:42--> 00:21:43

people in the back too.

00:21:51--> 00:21:59

Brothers and sisters nowadays on certain programs and activities that we have in that we are having. So you are aware of what we're doing here.

00:22:09--> 00:22:13

Our youth committee is organizing tonight

00:22:15--> 00:22:21

for the graduates from our registered members of the youth committee,

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

a celebration

00:22:25--> 00:22:28

for the high schoolers for their graduation tonight.

00:22:29--> 00:22:41

And those of you who are not part of this are invited to come and see or it will be closed at seven o'clock tonight. But this is an attempt to prove to show our appreciation.

00:22:42--> 00:22:43

For over youth,

00:22:45--> 00:22:48

we're able to accomplish this and not deny them credit.

00:22:50--> 00:22:53

As we know many people don't even make it through high school nowadays.

00:22:54--> 00:23:07

So we want them to know that we're behind them that we appreciate their accomplishment. However we are we have high expectations of them. And that's why we're doing this. And they are responsible

00:23:08--> 00:23:12

to do their best to meet those expectations.

00:23:13--> 00:23:18

For we trust them with the future of Islam and Muslim to the record.

00:23:22--> 00:23:26

In addition to that tonight will be a very accurate like

00:23:28--> 00:23:30

I forgot that we have a program

00:23:31--> 00:23:36

for the numerous celebration of the news.

00:23:37--> 00:23:54

And unfortunately, we're not having great turnout. So if you know anyone that has accepted Islam recently, please bring them let us all together everybody would appreciate them becoming part of this format this community in particular.

00:23:55--> 00:23:57

And then after that there's a gambling program.

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

This is just for tonight. And there are many activities and programs that are being flagged and that are available for you, your family and your children and particularly. So find out

00:24:14--> 00:24:18

find out about those activities and those programs and take part in

00:24:20--> 00:24:30

brothers and sisters, we welcome any kind of help, any kind of participation, so long as for the sake of a large project, and it is a positive.

00:24:32--> 00:24:40

We have some awesome commentary to bless those activities with those volunteers who are behind them. And remember, brothers and sisters,

00:24:42--> 00:24:45

that it is our responsibility to protect ourselves,

00:24:46--> 00:24:49

our family and our children

00:24:50--> 00:24:52

from melting

00:24:53--> 00:24:57

away in the heat of the temptations of this life

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

and it is our responsible

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

As well, to protect ourselves, our families and our children. From the heat of Hellfire for lost power out of the home It says, Yeah,

00:25:11--> 00:25:12

Boo.

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

Boo.

00:25:22--> 00:25:29

owe you the protect yourself and your children from the heat and the punishment of Hellfire,

00:25:31--> 00:25:49

which is fuel our mental and stillness. It is our responsibility and almost calls upon us to do this. Protect yourself, your families, your children, from the Hellfire Escalades to protect us from the Hellfire and preserve us from this punishment.

00:25:51--> 00:25:53

Brothers and sisters, remember,

00:25:55--> 00:25:56

every time

00:25:57--> 00:25:59

that unless we have a strong organization,

00:26:00--> 00:26:06

unless we have a strong foundation, unless we have strong institutions,

00:26:08--> 00:26:13

we won't be able to facilitate activities and programs that we won't be able to take care of our needs as a community.

00:26:15--> 00:26:32

And unless those communities are those centers, those institutions are independent, and everywhere in fashion, including the financial independence, and can establish your feet and have strong foundation, we won't be able to function or launch.

00:26:33--> 00:26:40

And unless that helped to secure that independence comes from the community, it won't come from anywhere else.

00:26:42--> 00:26:46

If it doesn't come from the community don't expect it to come from overseas.

00:26:48--> 00:26:58

It won't come from anywhere else. And how can I lead this community has been responsible. And mailwasher have added Listen, we have called upon you to help us pay off the debts of

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

about six weeks ago. And we presented you with an opportunity

00:27:06--> 00:27:14

to come up with 24 chairs or $50,000. Each to take care of the desk before the month of Ramadan.

00:27:16--> 00:27:38

And I haven't done that so far we have gotten a good number, we still have 12 more to go 12 more chairs in those four chairs have to come from the committee, you can do it yourself, you can rally a group of people and come together to do it. There are many ways if you have any suggestion, or if you want to take part of this

00:27:39--> 00:27:48

and free the message from even the youth By the way, even the user they're going to come back to you. Even the user taking ownership, they use the very same one share.

00:27:49--> 00:27:56

And they are planning to raise $50,000 to free their budget from that. So they can say minus Israel.

00:28:00--> 00:28:08

So if you have an idea, or suggestion, or if you want to participate in this and take part of this legacy, we have those

00:28:09--> 00:28:27

of us who have promised great reward for taking care of this houses. Doctor, brother, Neil Oguchi, who's in charge of the fundraising committee for the SEC, the acting director, or myself, or certainly not the office manager here.

00:28:29--> 00:28:33

Those of you who get engaged exactly what we're failing, there was a kind of a downer.

00:28:35--> 00:28:41

Those of you placed in LS to help you fulfill your pledge, and now must have a valid blessing for your patient.

00:28:44--> 00:28:46

And those of you who are still hesitant or

00:28:48--> 00:28:50

may have lost the strength

00:28:53--> 00:29:21

and make the trust the loss of power dynamic and take care of this. And those of you who for some reason cannot at least make the intention. Brothers and sisters make the intention to capitalize on this great opportunity that was given us. The Prophet told us that there are those who made the intention and get the reward. And once we did because they were sincere. If I had the ability to do this, I would have done it. Make them fish and take some steps.

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

And I want to

00:29:24--> 00:29:26

help you, bless your

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

brothers or sisters.

00:29:30--> 00:29:36

Do not also forget, as we talked about this big tech, that on a weekly basis, we have expenses.

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

And it has been brought to my attention that recently the amount of donations that we get on a regular basis has dropped. there's any reason for this, please bring your dog dish. But we need to remember that those who do something continuous, Allah Subhana Allah knows that action bears and blesses them much more

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

Those who do one thing at one time and don't maintain our minds as

00:30:14--> 00:30:15

we go

00:30:19--> 00:30:19

along.

00:30:21--> 00:30:21

Allah.

00:30:24--> 00:30:26

Allah Allah.

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

Allah.

00:30:35--> 00:30:36

Allah.

00:30:41--> 00:30:41

What's

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

up?

00:31:02--> 00:31:02

My friends?

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

Have you been dating a man once again?

00:31:35--> 00:31:36

So call us yeah.

00:31:38--> 00:31:39

I learned a lot in

00:31:41--> 00:31:44

poker when I was

00:31:45--> 00:31:45

younger.

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

in the

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

lobby

00:32:01--> 00:32:04

or, you know, working on the left?

00:32:23--> 00:32:28

Do you have a plan in place for yourself or your family, for your children?

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

And for those who care?

00:32:34--> 00:32:36

Are you aware of some of those dangerous

00:32:39--> 00:32:49

statistics show brothers and sisters that during summer time, there are so many dangers. And you can look them up, I'm not going to go into the specifics.

00:32:50--> 00:32:55

But children and vitality increases during summer time.

00:32:57--> 00:33:01

The risk, of course increase them from getting serious

00:33:03--> 00:33:10

and minor injuries because of the fact that they are intelligent, they're involved in many activities.

00:33:11--> 00:33:21

But there are other risks that are as dangerous and as critical as those dangers on their health and the lungs.

00:33:23--> 00:33:24

As we know,

00:33:27--> 00:33:32

when summertime comes, many people shift or change the type of activities that they involve themselves in.

00:33:35--> 00:33:38

And one of those pages are one of those risks

00:33:40--> 00:33:42

based on the health of our children.

00:33:44--> 00:33:47

Some and I'm not talking about

00:33:48--> 00:33:51

sunburns in heat strokes.

00:33:52--> 00:33:56

You're aware of those things, and most of us are very sensitive to those issues.

00:33:57--> 00:34:01

But I'm coming out with a series of the real the more critical

00:34:02--> 00:34:03

heat stroke

00:34:05--> 00:34:09

exposure or risk that we put ourselves into,

00:34:10--> 00:34:13

and this life and most importantly, in the past.

00:34:17--> 00:34:18

Many of our children

00:34:20--> 00:34:24

change their activities, and some due to the

00:34:25--> 00:34:30

fact that their parents are over protected by going outside of duty because of the heat

00:34:31--> 00:34:33

or the dangers dangerous or maybe they are unhappy.

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

So it is a well known fact

00:34:37--> 00:34:39

that when children stay home,

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

many of them

00:34:42--> 00:34:43

and activities or

00:34:45--> 00:34:47

way to entertain themselves like watching TV or

00:34:48--> 00:34:53

surfing the neck. And one of the most destructive actually behaviors

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

is to be addicted to video games and we know what comes with that

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

Obesity, which is the rise.

00:35:03--> 00:35:07

Despite all the attempts to bring awareness about this issue

00:35:09--> 00:35:13

15% of children under 12 in America are obese.

00:35:15--> 00:35:24

And 12% have obesity related diseases that you only hear about in adults, people were transporting,

00:35:26--> 00:35:29

like diabetes, and heart problems.

00:35:32--> 00:35:36

So we need to be awareness and protect our children, they have rights.

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

And we have to help them plan better, for example, and engaging them in activities and programs that are much more productive.

00:35:49--> 00:35:52

In addition to this, there are the dangers,

00:35:53--> 00:35:56

of course, getting injured,

00:35:57--> 00:36:05

or getting kidnapped, if we have not visited, and one thing that I have noticed in the Muslim community, this is very unfortunate.

00:36:07--> 00:36:16

And I'm not trying to scare you here. But I've tried to make you become a little more cautious and careful. Because we can't we live in a time that is very,

00:36:18--> 00:36:21

where people don't have conscious awareness.

00:36:23--> 00:36:50

It is one of those common things that we see when we have activities for the children around the kitchen, or outside the restaurant in a park or something. parents do not pay attention, and they do not monitor their children, especially those who are under age. And you can't do this. And I don't want to stand here and give you stories, horrible stories of how certain children got either injured, or they will die because

00:36:51--> 00:36:52

their parents will not pay attention

00:36:53--> 00:37:01

as to what's preserved on our children. But brothers and sisters, we have an obligation and we cannot be naive about this.

00:37:02--> 00:37:04

Legally, we are responsible and islamically

00:37:06--> 00:37:07

responsible. So we need to pay attention.

00:37:10--> 00:37:23

And not leave your children unattended, especially when we engage in activities and programs. for the whole family. Sometimes we get caught up in our own fun in our own conversations. So as we have this kind of programs or activities

00:37:26--> 00:37:30

to help us cooperate with us and pay attention to the safety division.

00:37:32--> 00:37:38

There is another danger that comes with summertime. And that is our kids losing their skills and those

00:37:40--> 00:37:43

skills that they learn during the school year.

00:37:45--> 00:37:51

I don't understand how can a parent not plan for this extended period of time,

00:37:52--> 00:37:53

two months

00:37:54--> 00:37:55

of free time

00:37:57--> 00:38:13

where children sometimes forget what they have memorized, or what they have learned. And in many cases lose many skills of their brothers and sisters have anything during summertime, our children shouldn't be gaining more knowledge. They should be advancing.

00:38:14--> 00:38:16

They should be learning more skills.

00:38:19--> 00:38:22

They should not be forgetting the parameter they memorize during the year.

00:38:23--> 00:38:54

They should not be losing skills. We don't want our children at the end of the summer, when they go back. And they're supposed to be advancing in their schools. We don't want them to be at the same level or below the level that they were at before the summer. So it is our responsibility to set programs activities, and in many centers and hamdulillah. In many foreign schools, there are these kind of activities and programs. However, the response from the community is very weak.

00:38:55--> 00:39:01

An example that is the program that we have here at the ministry that was announced

00:39:05--> 00:39:05

two days a week

00:39:06--> 00:39:10

to help more children retain and learn more about

00:39:12--> 00:39:13

summer camps.

00:39:15--> 00:39:16

educational programs

00:39:18--> 00:39:34

and if you for some reason cannot take part of this. The least you can do is come up either with a program your own personal, custom made program or activity get your child will book as long as a book, a book in which they can

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

find any information, any valuable information and make sure you have a contract with your child to read this book. Throughout the summer time. Maybe you want to have a list of books that they can read.

00:39:49--> 00:39:53

Maybe you want them to finish reading about the syrup or

00:39:55--> 00:39:58

maybe you want them to learn new skills, any skill

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

But we have to be aware of

00:40:02--> 00:40:13

that during summer, most children lose a lot of their skills. And summertime is instead of being a nice break for them to rejuvenate and and regain their strength,

00:40:14--> 00:40:17

it becomes unfortunately at that time setback.

00:40:19--> 00:40:24

Now the third danger, and this is the one that I want to focus on, is the danger.

00:40:27--> 00:40:28

The danger for the

00:40:30--> 00:40:32

summertime comes with many occasions.

00:40:35--> 00:40:44

Summertime comes with a blessing that is unfortunately refused, and many people are delusional about it.

00:40:46--> 00:40:47

The promise of a

00:40:48--> 00:40:50

secretary general would be

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

a sad one.

00:40:53--> 00:40:59

But there are two lessons on lost power that is given to people. And many people

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

are unaware of them. And many people are negligent of their

00:41:06--> 00:41:07

health.

00:41:08--> 00:41:26

Many people do not appreciate health, and they do not protect their health. And they do not take care of themselves. And they do not take advantage of their health to get closer to Allah and do good for themselves until it's either gone, or until it's increased.

00:41:29--> 00:41:32

And that's why they said that health

00:41:33--> 00:41:35

is a blessing that many people appreciate what is.

00:41:38--> 00:41:39

The other one is

00:41:40--> 00:41:51

free time, for lack of a better term. I don't believe that there is such a thing as free time. But free time, sometimes that is not a time that is not

00:41:53--> 00:41:54

a time that is not

00:41:56--> 00:42:02

that is not filled with some obligations and responsibilities.

00:42:04--> 00:42:22

And many of us get those opportunities, brothers and sisters, for a believer there is no such thing as free time. For every moment in this life, is an opportunity to get closer to lots of hands on with Allah. And at the same time, it is something that you will be asked about. And that's why the

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

seven sent into

00:42:25--> 00:42:27

that there are four

00:42:28--> 00:42:34

lessons or four elements that are most commonly asked each and every single one of us

00:42:38--> 00:42:39

have types

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

that no one will receive proceed on the Day of Judgment before they are asked about four things.

00:42:48--> 00:43:00

One of actually two of those things has to do with time, what is a good lifestyle? What have you done? What have you earned? What legacy Have you been left behind? The second one is you

00:43:02--> 00:43:08

use in particular that portion of your life where you are supposed to be most productive?

00:43:10--> 00:43:11

What have you done?

00:43:13--> 00:43:14

Did you take advantage of it or not?

00:43:16--> 00:43:19

I will ask each and every single one of us when you have to prepare and

00:43:21--> 00:43:27

we have to prepare answer time is is a very precious gift and lots of how Allah gives us

00:43:28--> 00:43:33

time swears by it. And every time time goes

00:43:35--> 00:43:35

with it

00:43:37--> 00:43:40

goes something about us.

00:43:41--> 00:43:54

Time is an opportunity for us to deposit something to decline some good deeds. And many people that don't do that to the contrary. And instead, they leave some bad and painful

00:43:55--> 00:43:57

memories that they will regret.

00:43:59--> 00:44:01

So we needed to help our children

00:44:02--> 00:44:04

find something

00:44:05--> 00:44:08

something positive, something constructive.

00:44:09--> 00:44:19

And there are many activities. Because if we leave them without much guidance, this free time will be

00:44:20--> 00:44:28

actually takes about a month. And there are so many temptations out there. Many of our children learn bad habits during

00:44:30--> 00:44:32

breaks from school.

00:44:33--> 00:44:34

Many more children

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

lose their innocence. During these kinds of times. Many of our children deviate from the right path.

00:44:46--> 00:44:55

Many of our children are lost and in some cases brothers in some very horrible stories you would hear their loss for them.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

So brothers and sisters, let's be aware of this and let's have a plan for them.

00:45:00--> 00:45:08

There are all kinds of activities, all kinds of programs, all kinds of trips, cows, that we can take advantage of.

00:45:11--> 00:45:16

Last point, I'd like to make brothers and sisters, some retirement surety for your family to bond

00:45:19--> 00:45:22

for a family to improve the level of their communication

00:45:23--> 00:45:27

for you and I to know something more, and something new

00:45:29--> 00:45:30

about family values,

00:45:32--> 00:45:34

and the bond that we should have with our families.

00:45:35--> 00:45:37

And those of us who insist

00:45:38--> 00:45:41

on keeping themselves busy with other things,

00:45:43--> 00:45:53

during summer time, not give some time for their children and their families. They don't know what there's what they are setting themselves up for.

00:45:55--> 00:46:04

Brothers and sisters, let's take advantage of this time communicating with our children understand where they are, and try to have some

00:46:05--> 00:46:08

bonding time with them. I say this

00:46:09--> 00:46:11

to make you an ideal solution.

00:46:29--> 00:46:29

and

00:46:31--> 00:46:31

gentlemen,

00:46:33--> 00:46:42

you ever been to sisters, brothers, please move forward and fill in the gaps. I know it's getting stuffy. Make sure that we allow

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

people in the back too.

00:46:52--> 00:47:00

I'd like to take this opportunity brothers and sisters nowadays on certain programs activities that we have in that we are having. So you are aware of what we're doing here.

00:47:11--> 00:47:14

Our youth committee is organizing tonight.

00:47:16--> 00:47:22

For the graduates from our registered members of the youth committee,

00:47:24--> 00:47:25

a celebration

00:47:26--> 00:47:29

for the high schoolers for their graduation tonight.

00:47:31--> 00:47:45

And those of you who are not part of this are invited to come and see you we will be closed at seven o'clock tonight. But this is an attempt to prove to show our appreciation for our youth

00:47:46--> 00:47:50

were able to accomplish this and not deny them credit.

00:47:51--> 00:47:54

As we know many people don't even make it through high school nowadays.

00:47:55--> 00:48:13

So we want them to know that we're behind them that we appreciate their accomplishment. However we are we have high expectations of them. And that's why we're doing this. And they are responsible to do their best to meet those expectations.

00:48:14--> 00:48:19

For we trust them with the future of the Islam and Muslims in America.

00:48:23--> 00:48:27

In addition to that tonight will be a very active life.

00:48:30--> 00:48:31

After that we have a program

00:48:33--> 00:48:55

for the new Muslims celebration of the noodles. And unfortunately, we're not having great turnout. So if you know anyone that has accepted Islam recently, please bring them let us all together, appreciate them becoming part of this Methodist community in particular.

00:48:57--> 00:48:59

And then after that there's a gambling program.

00:49:01--> 00:49:14

This is just for tonight. And there are many activities and programs that are being flagged and that are available for you, your family and your children and particularly. So find out

00:49:16--> 00:49:19

find out about those activities in those programs and take part in

00:49:22--> 00:49:31

brothers and sisters, we welcome any kind of help, any kind of participation, so long as for the sake of allies, and it is upon us.

00:49:34--> 00:49:42

We have some loss of habitat and bless those activities with those volunteers who are behind them. And remember, brothers and sisters,

00:49:43--> 00:49:46

that it is our responsibility to protect ourselves,

00:49:47--> 00:49:50

our family and our children

00:49:52--> 00:49:53

from melting

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

away in the heat of the temptations of this life.

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

And it is our responsibility as well, to protect ourselves, our families and our children from the heat of Hellfire for most parents out of the home, it says, yeah.

00:50:13--> 00:50:13

Oh,

00:50:19--> 00:50:20

no, she doesn't

00:50:24--> 00:50:30

really protect yourself and your children from the heat and the punishment of Hellfire,

00:50:32--> 00:50:51

which is fueling our mental and stillness. It is our responsibility to close upon citizens. Protect yourself, your families, your children, from Hellfire as the laws to protect us from the campfire, and preserve us from this punishment.

00:50:53--> 00:50:55

But as the sisters, remember,

00:50:56--> 00:50:57

every time

00:50:58--> 00:51:01

that unless we have a strong organization,

00:51:02--> 00:51:08

unless we have a strong foundation, unless we have strong institutions,

00:51:09--> 00:51:14

we won't be able to facilitate activities and programs that we won't be able to take care of our needs.

00:51:16--> 00:51:34

And unless those communities are those centers, those institutions are independent, and everywhere in fashion, including the financial independence, and can establish your feet and have a strong foundation, we won't be able to function or Jewish.

00:51:35--> 00:51:42

And unless that help to secure that independence comes from the community, it won't come from anywhere else.

00:51:44--> 00:51:47

If it doesn't come from the community don't expect it to come from overseas.

00:51:49--> 00:52:00

It won't come from anywhere else, that this community has been responsible. And mailwasher have added Listen, we have called upon you to help us pay off the debts of

00:52:02--> 00:52:06

about six weeks ago. And we presented you with an opportunity

00:52:08--> 00:52:15

to come up with 24 chairs or $50,000. Each to take care of the decks before the month

00:52:17--> 00:52:40

and a half after that, so far, we have gotten a good number, we still have 12, more to go to 12 more shares. And those four chairs have to come from a committee, you can do it yourself, you can rally a group of people and come together and do it. There are many ways if you have any suggestion, or if you want to take part of this.

00:52:41--> 00:52:49

And freedom, even the youth By the way, even the youth and they're going to come back even the youth are taken Why should they use committees take one share.

00:52:50--> 00:52:58

And they are planning to raise $50,000 to free their budget from that. So they can say minus Israel.

00:53:01--> 00:53:10

So if you have an idea, or suggestion, or if you want to participate in this, as a part of this might be of those

00:53:11--> 00:53:28

of us who have promised greater reward for taking care of this houses, Doctor, brother, Neil Oguchi, who's in charge of the fundraising committee, for the SEC to do the acting director, or myself, or certainly not the office manager here.

00:53:31--> 00:53:35

Those of you who get engaged as after the local family members have had an advantage and

00:53:37--> 00:53:40

those of you who played there must have Allah help you fulfill your pleasure,

00:53:41--> 00:53:43

bless you for your patience.

00:53:45--> 00:53:48

And those of you who are still hesitant or thinking

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

straight,

00:53:52--> 00:53:54

you can push that up

00:53:55--> 00:54:23

and make the press a lot of power dynamic and take care of this. And those of you who for some reason cannot at least make the intention versus make the intention capitalize on this great opportunity that was given us. The Prophet told us that there are those who made the internship and get the reward of course we did because they were sincere. If I had the ability to do this, I would have done it, make them fish and take some steps.

00:54:24--> 00:54:27

I don't want to have a problem with helping blushing.

00:54:29--> 00:54:30

Brothers and sisters.

00:54:32--> 00:54:37

Do not also forget as we talked about this big depth that on a weekly basis we have expenses

00:54:38--> 00:54:59

and it has been brought to my attention that recently the amount of donations that we get on a regular basis has dropped. there's any reason for this, please bring your dog fish. But we need to remember that those who do something continues Allah Subhana Medina loves that action. There's

00:55:00--> 00:55:07

blesses them much more than those who do one thing at one time and don't maintain.

00:55:26--> 00:55:27

Allahu

00:55:36--> 00:55:38

Allah, extra demand.

00:55:45--> 00:55:45
