Dear brothers and sisters, before I go any further, I'd like to bring to your attention, that certain distractions actually anything that distracts you that you distract yourself with intentionally during the hook. But while the hookah is in session for the Friday sermon is a formal
and essential part of the human of this entire process of attendance. uwajima is not just merely coming and making the tour archives and leaving
when it comes to Friday, when it comes to Joomla, Yeoman Joomla this portion is very important and essential. In fact, the minute the heartbeat or the speaker takes
takes his spot in the pulpit and greets people the angels who are taking names of those who are attending will stop will fold their
sheets are their books, and they no longer take attendance. And they join the crowd. They join the audience and they listen
That's why the process would have encouraged us to come as early as possible. Right before the coffee basically begin, that's number one. Number two,
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam warned us that if one is distracted, distract himself during the hotel with playing with pebbles, and those days when they had pebbles in the masala or even talking to the person next to him. And that's why I say sisters brothers Listen to me. And this applies to both.
Yes, it's mandatory in the case of the brothers but the sisters come to Juma which is optional. And they hope for the reward of Joomla. If they do any of these things, it will nullify or diminish or pretty much void the reward of Joomla. So you don't want to do that do not be distracted with anything, whether it's
even if it's your PDA, or your smartphone.
Whether it's a Blackberry, iPhone, or Android or whatever it is, you don't want to do that. Now is not the time to respond to someone's text, or check your calendar or check your email.
Likewise, you should not even you should not even be distracted reading core app, you can't even read per hour which is which is something horrible. You can't even be opening the most have and reading in it while the hookah is in session. You can do that during a lecture if you want to. It's not proper etiquette. But you can do that. It's not as serious as you can do that, even during an eighth quotable, although you should listen. But when it comes to humor, it's mandatory. So bear that in mind, you can even be distracted with the person next to you can even tell the person next to you be quiet. It is recorded in the authentic hadith that the prophet SAW Selim said, if a person
says Be quiet to the person next to him, he has indeed, lover lover means that he has indeed said something that is vain, and will ever says that or does that whoever is distracted, his drama is nullified. So be careful, I wanted to bring that to your attention. This again, once again goes both to two for both our brothers and our sisters.
Today, brothers and sisters, as we approach the end of the year, and in fact, in this case, as we're approaching the beginning of a decade,
many people use this period to reevaluate and
look into themselves. There is a process
that is very essential and very important. In our Islamic tradition, a loss of habitat as human beings created us and we are made of three components.
three very important components Actually, that's what makes us human beings. That's, that's what distinguishes from other from the rest of the creation of a loss of Hana with that.
The most important and the most noble of these components is known as neffs. And this is self or soul or
your spirit or your soul.
The second one of those components
is the body.
And the reason I'm mentioning the soul first
is because the soul was there before even the body was created,
before anyone knew or had any idea that the body is being formed or put together or
the soul was there
waiting for the body to be made.
So, it is again what distinguishes us
the body is a second component and the third component is something that develops and that is Apple,
intellect and intelligence today and in the next few what was inshallah I would like to focus on what is neglected the most.
the most essential part of all of that
Allah subhanho wa Taala sent us messages and messengers, to teach us and to tell us how to take care of by the way of all these three of all three components.
So when Allah Subhana Allah to Allah tells us to pray and to engage in acts of worship, that is for the benefit of the body,
as well of course as a soul.
And when loss of habitat for business from certain things that are harmful to our health or our well being or physical well being that is for the protection of the body.
Likewise, a loss of handler to Allah taught us and sent us a message that tells us how to take care or how to enhance the intellect
And most importantly the soul and told us to stay away from things
that will destroy or jeopardize the well being of the soul as well as the well being of the intellect or the intelligence. This process is known as teskey, to
the purification of the soul.
And the scholars talked about this defined it
chaparro monachus monachus kiya
hereunder fushia is law
They said that teskey a means to purify
and do that which will enhance its well being. Now, if you take the word teskey, itself, linguistically speaking literally the word itself at Ischia to have bahara, when they're
in the same room, by the way, is the same word,
or the same root word from which the cap comes from.
So if you analyze it, actually, the word zecca itself comes from
zecca, which means to grow, and it means to purify.
In other words,
you must purify your soul, and you must experience some kind of growth,
just like you will have to for the well being of the body, you have to maintain, you have to maintain its purity, and you have to make sure that it's clean. And also part of the one of this size, one of the clear signs that the person or the child is healthy is that they maintain this growth that they grow
proportionately, right. In fact, if the person is not growing properly,
or if they're not growing fast enough, at the right, actually, they're growing too fast, or too slow, that's an indication of a problem.
So there has to be some kind of growth,
and the person has to maintain that growth.
Likewise, the soul has to be well maintained, and it has to grow.
And before that, it has to be purified.
This is very important.
Because it has to do with your capital, as a human being your capital is not that money that you possess.
It is rather, and it's not even the body by the way.
Body is an asset. Your capital is your soul.
And I'm not making this up the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, in a hurry at the end of the lunacy,
everyone leaves in the morning seeking some kind of briskly provision, everyone does that so badly or unnecessarily for more people.
And people are one of two types. Either someone who trades his soul everyday, by the way, we trade our souls.
And that was just connected to our spirituality, we engage in this transaction, when you get in a relationship,
you are putting your soul on the line, when you get when you get a job, you're putting your soul on the line. When you get education, you're putting your soul on the line, when you do something, or you choose not to do something that you should do, you're putting your soul and you and your spiritual well being on the line.
And it depends on the kind of transaction that you make some people profit and others lose. So the problem is, although I said about your unnecessary former Oklahoma
and the the profit and the loss comes in a form of either the soul is successful, and is saved, it is all ultimately about salvation, or it is doomed and destroyed.
And we continue to engage in this transaction back and forth on a daily basis every single day as a prophecy
until the day of judgment comes and on that day, what will determine whether we will be saved or not. Salvation will be dependent on whether we bring forth to Allah Subhana Allah the Almighty, a pure soul or not.
So it is important brothers and sisters, this is not a secondary matter. This is not this is not just some kind of, you know, we're talking about we're not talking about cosmetic
procedure. When it comes to making when it comes to a makeover for for the soul and for the heart.
That's not essential, it is critical
that when it comes to body,
cosmetics, you know,
you could, the body can survive sometimes, you know, people live with certain kind of diseases or disorders or they continue to live,
the soul cannot continue to live.
You either save it purified, or you let it die gradually.
And just like we have diseases and
that attacks the body and weaken the body, there are diseases out there that attack the soul and weaken it.
We're not going to be talking about the entire process because it's, it's actually a lifelong process. It's a it's an ongoing process, but in the next few hookless inshallah, we'll talk about different aspects of this process. But today, I wanted to put emphasis on this last panel with Alan Cooper and if he swears by something,
if Allah subhanaw taala swears by something, there's, it's called a sub. When a person is made, there is always job and there is always an answer, a reason for which a loss of habitat is making a person.
Now amongst them kamatera doesn't need to swear or make an oath.
He doesn't need to, but Allah subhanho wa Taala does anyways, to show us the importance of what is coming next. Very often in the Quran, you find one person or two or three or four, followed by a very important divine statement.
When it comes to this process, and its importance, we have a sutra called
a show ships
were a loss of habitat it starts the sutra and he makes it or he swears by the sun.
Last night it was reciting.
I think also
it was the process I'm used to recite the sutra in Asia prayer very often.
So let's take the sutra most of us memorize it a loss of habitat is his was chiemsee Aloha and I'm not going to be able to for the sake of time go through the meaning of each word look it up with shamcey what
will primary erotica
actually there's there's two right there in the first two things so not only there's a lot of times whereby one thing one of his greatest creation
but we'll go haha for unknown period will come marry that Allah and the moon when the Harry is Angela, what Lady Day I'm sure her that's fine.
When lady they have she was so mad. He was so mad.
When out of the mouth, hahaha, this each one of them could be one or two. That's that person had nine.
One I've seen one. So that's 11 right there 11 things 11 objects 11 concepts.
All of this for what?
I'll have a half a euro, Taka,
Taka indeed, at the end of these 11. The 11th. One is the soul that he created subpattern with Allah, Allah Subhana Allah says successful is He Who purifies it
11 consecutive oaths.
Allah subhanaw taala swears 1-234-567-8910 11 things. And at the end he says successful is he This is not this is not a joke. This is not a some kind of metaphor. This is serious matter. And we have to take it seriously.
So one might say, then if indeed as a Muslim what Allah says in this sutra, and the other sort of sort of add on lots of halitosis by the aphylla Herman zakka, indeed successful as he who purifies his his soul, or seeks purity of his soul and his heart. If that's the case, then how do we do this?
inshallah Tada, we'll be talking about this.
In the next few, what was that for today? This is what I want you to remember. The scholars said
as this is according
to people, in scholars like Emmanuel, Rosati and others, this is a mandatory process. The scholars different is it? Is it something recommended or is it mandatory? Is it
but it seems a lot of data and that is a mandatory process.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the messengers before him. Were saying
With this mission in mind, they came to introduce something that will help us purify our souls. Allah Subhana Allah says one lady had been mean
to Allah him as he was a key him, he is the one that he sent to the unlettered, a messenger from amongst themselves, who recite his verses is is His signs to them and to purify them.
So ultimately if the Quran and the prophetic statement as soon as and the acts of worship, and everything that the prophet SAW Selim taught us, that one, the 23 years of the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wa sallam his life where he taught
and set an example himself and led,
if all of that,
if we cannot take out of all of that a process by which we cleanse ourselves and our souls and purified,
then we have failed ourselves. The Prophet was successful in his mission, he delivered the rest
depends on us, and how seriously we take this process, part of that process, and the first step towards that ultimate goal of purifying the soul is with the scholars and listen to this. This is very interesting.
Actually, brothers, please, please move forward and fill in the gaps
will continue. And the second whatever I say this and ask Allah
to forgive our sins,
except that our deeds, rectify our affairs. Please do not block the entrance. Move forward. Any gap that you see for the lack of love hate on Apollo has no power whatsoever? aloha Tara

The profits are low I didn't even send them was reported to have said
that there are three things if one does those three things will indeed find the sweetness of email. I know there's another popular Hadith where the Prophet sort of talks about another set of qualities, if one possesses them. This one is things that person can do or should do and commit to.
The first one is an Abba de la
ilaha illa who whosoever worships none but Allah azza wa jal alone, without any partners, whoever is content with Allah subhanaw taala to be his Lord subjugates himself and his passion to learn but Allah azza wa jal
whoever does not devote his heart or his soul to anyone other than allies origin
and whosoever number two delivers the cat
of his wealth, whoever pays the cat of his wealth every year.
The provinces like Eva can be handled, that he is content with it, he's happy. He's actually excited about it. He's anxious about it. He doesn't feel this burden. Oh my god, I have to give back or I have to calculate my Zika. No.
He is contempt. He is convinced.
He is he is happy. There are some people I mean, this is a tax season. People are preparing for that.
who believe that part of being patriotic is to, to really pay your dues and it is, pay your dues, your taxes, that you should do it, honestly. And that is the case,
you should do it honestly. Now, when it comes to how taxes are allocated,
of course we should, we should be very upset, how taxpayers money is being wasted. But nonetheless, when it comes to you fulfilling your part of the bargain, you're part of the ethically speaking, you have to do it properly, and you deliver it. So some people believe that part of being here, you know, it's, I should pay my dues. And they do it.
On the other hand, you find believers,
or people who profess belief, and a man who, when it comes to giving the car for Allah subhanho, wa Taala.
They're not content, like it's not fair.
Allah subhanaw taala. You see, we give taxes to the government, it's not necessarily the government that gives us that money. But because the government basically does all kinds of things, and, and supposedly, they secure an environment and a state
conducive of prosperity and all of that. So our contributions,
payback little bit.
But what if the government was giving you everything?
What if I was giving you everything that you have, and I asked you for a little bit of it, two and a half percent.
That is, if you have extra, if you manage to save, if I gave you so much, that it exceeded your basic necessities and needs, and you were able to save and I gave you the intellect, you know, and and the intelligence and the ability
and the skill to manage your wealth and save and prosper. I asked you to give two and a half of that two and a half percent, give it and share it with someone else and allocate it somewhere else.
And you say no.
So the Prophet said, One who realizes that and delivers his car every year, but he met him behind us. That's the second element. And number three, he who purifies his soul?
Those three things
does. So one of us have asked him and this is the focus. He said, What is his key?
What is teskey? What's the definition? So it is reported to the process and defined it as a Allah and Allah has no agenda.
That he knows and he is certain to become certain
that Allah subhana wa tada is with you wherever you may be,
to be in a state of awareness where you are with Allah and you know that Allah subhanaw taala is with you, wherever you may be.
And when Allah is with you, you should know you should not have any fear, nor shall you agree.
And when a law is with you, you will be successful. It will not last with you, you will be guided and when Allah is with you, you will be happy.
So how do we how do we do this? As I said, Allah subhana wa tada these three components email, which is for the intellect for the sake of the intellect,
Islam and the Pillars of Islam for the sake of the body, and it said for the sake of the soul these three concepts were taught to us and when were introduced to us so how do we start that process? We started with through what they call a deadly deadly
attack Leah to what
possessed Leah to America here in San
Miguel alsacian venema
with deadly to hear and it's a headline inserted within our software Let me show you how to go here and so what was the key elbow? Pharaoh Bobby horrible.
They said that you need Dahlia and daddy. What does that mean? Definitely literally means vacating.
to vacate eradicate, read your soul and your heart from vices.
is literally it means to decorate,
ornamentation to beautify your soul by adopting,
enhancing and introducing noble characteristic and qualities,
In order for that to happen, brothers and sisters, we have to sit with ourselves.
And we have to call ourselves to account.
And in order for us to achieve that we have to have courage. I asked him, to give you an eye the courage that we need to confront our weaknesses and our shortcomings and ask a lot of diligence to purify our soul, allow Matthew foods and Aqua Zaki had the high omens occur until you hermana speaking of the cat brothers and sisters, we're approaching the end of the fiscal year, you have
I don't know what, two, three weeks left till the 31st of December, if you want to claim any donation, or if you want to make any contribution this year to claim it on your taxes. So reminder, give, share, donate, support,
the message, support any good cause that is out there. Again, just a reminder, we're still receiving the car, we're still receiving donations, we're still receiving soda. So do it.
And it does have this effect on the soul. So how I was listening to one of
one of the prominent scholars here in North America, talking to the other day, and he was saying, somehow he said What does giving reflect what does it show?
He was asking his audience and I think one person was finally able to answer properly he said courage he said yes indeed, a person who's capable of giving is a courageous person and a person who doesn't give is fearful person and sometimes it gets to the level where people may be coward there you know, so trust Allah subhanaw taala given Allah subhanaw taala will give you so bear that in mind, I have an announcement from the management and from the security and parking last week they found out that those this car towing
this series of car towing incidents that took place over the past few weeks were not instigated or were not reported or initiated by the management of any of the surrounding shopping centers or businesses and that some towing company basically took it on you know, their own to go and do that and they were stopped from doing that by the message management.
that doesn't mean that you shouldn't be careful
you know, and you should make sure that you you park in the designated areas inshallah tada to ease or to alleviate the that we decided to totalities to start shortening the timing for the hot water, the length of the hook when chautala will be ending the hook but sooner than then we usually do and the shallows it will start with an increment of five minutes and shower tada hopefully by the salad everything will be done by 140 in Chicago is starting the end of the month or the beginning of the new year in Chicago. The reason I'm making this statement is because I know some people wait until the last minute or the last 10 minutes and come so bear that in mind that Chicago is starting from
next week you might want to adjust that inshallah tada and ask for logs to accept our deeds and forgive our sins. And also we welcome all the projects that came back tonight we have a judge welcoming
event. We welcome them all. We asked a lot to accept their deeds or forgive their sins and they'll come to light that they were brought back safe to their families and those who are still over there overseas We ask Allah subhana wa tada to grant them a safe return. May Allah subhana wa tada reward you bless you protect you and your families and the members of your household and May Allah Subhana Allah make you and of those who listen and follow the vessel for they listen to the made a Peace and blessings of our lobby upon His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
