We begin first and foremost With the name of Allah subhana wa tada the Most High the most majestic,
the Most Merciful.
We praise Allah as he is the only one worthy of all of our praise in entirety exclusively.
We think Allah as he is the most deserving of our gratitude.
We ask Allah for guidance as he is the one who guides and deems who will be misguided.
We ask Allah for assistance as he is the most powerful and he needs the assistance of no one.
We asked the protection of Allahu subhana wa tada because he is our Creator and he is the old seeing and he is aware of our weaknesses and inabilities.
We ask a lot to protect us from ourselves from our own poor choices and from the evil within us and the evil consequences of our sins.
And we bear witness that our Creator Allah subhana wa tada is the only one worthy of worship alone.
And we bear witness that his beloved messenger, and servant and slave Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the last and final messenger sent to all mankind
as a mercy and as a guide and as a role model.
May Allah subhanaw taala shower him and his family and his companions and all those who follow his way with Peace and mercy and compliments and salutations and blessings, until the end of time.
As Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded us to do.
Let us remember and remind one another to have Taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
To be in the mindset that we are commanded to be in in this month.
And in all of our times on this earth in this dunya to protect ourselves from the displeasure and the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala by fulfilling what he commanded and staying away from what he prohibited.
It feels like just yesterday we were expecting the month of Ramadan to come upon us.
And now the month is coming to a conclusion.
This is the last Juma of this month. Today is the 28th day according to when we started
in there but a few nights left.
And the fact that this month is coming to an end
is part of the Sun novel line his creation
as everything in this dunya will eventually come to an end.
That is the nature of this dunya that is what the dunya is by definition.
It is something temporary and it is something fleeting
and it is something deceptive
and the deceptive nature of this dunya is it creates a false sense of comfort to where we forget about the fact that it is going to end and expire.
But there is nothing more truthful about this dunya except that it will come to an end and everything within it will come to an end.
Could Lumina la have fun
Whatever power you want because in general you will Ekrem
everything from the creation of Allah will eventually come to an end.
And only Allah subhana wa tada is the one who has no beginning and no ending.
And so as we reflect
over the fact that this beautiful month that we love,
and as much as we don't want it to end, even though there's a lot of struggle, and there's a lot of effort, and there's a lot of fatigue.
It's not easy to be fasting in a hot summer day while you still have to go to work and you still have to go to school and you still have to do everything that you have to do in your daily life. And then on top of that we encourage you come to the masjid and Salatu Tel Aviv and in the last 10 nights to her job and then people are asking you to increase in your sadhaka
all of that requires effort and that takes a toll
and you may experience some amount of physical fatigue and that's okay.
It's okay to have a little bit of fatigue
because you are engaging in a business transaction with Allahu subhana wa tada
in Allah has still Amina me Nina fuson, b n Naira, homodiegetic Allah subhana wa tada promises to purchase your wealth and your lives and what you have and give you Jenna in exchange and nothing that we have
can pay the price of gender but that's the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada Allah in Necedah, La Jolla, the commodity of Allah subhanaw taala is very expensive.
To la hingegen, the commodity commodity of Allah is gender.
And so as we reflect over this ending, and the fact that everything in dunya comes to an end,
we should also remember that we also will come to an end as well.
Some people in our very own community did not even live to the end of this blessed month. They began it with us.
But now they have been buried beneath the ground.
And when we think about our ending, we should ask ourselves, what is it going to be like?
There is a concept that we have in our Deen
it's called hurstville hajima.
To have a beautiful ending,
to end on a strong and powerful and positive and good note,
to end our lives to end our period of stay in this dunya
in a manner that is pleasing to Allah subhana wa Tada.
And on this topic, we are reminded of a very, very scary Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam.
One that would make the hair of the scholars stand up.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the authentic hadith recorded in the book of Muslim
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Monrovia Marina Jana
hatanaka lubaina Hua Bina Eleazar
alley Hill kita
for your Emmylou bi Maria, Helena, you've heard Hulu her.
Maria Haley now
Maya Kubina who have been a healer your
face before la Hill kita
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that some of you will be engaging in the actions of the people of Jenna.
Everything that you are doing, the people that will enter into gender, that's what they were doing. You're on the right track.
You are on a path and an action plan that leads only to gender.
But then that path gets interrupted.
And when that path becomes interrupted, then that person then engages in the actions of the people of the Hellfire for us before it hit Kitab and that is the time when the decree of Allah comes down that that's when they will die. So they end up leaving this dunya in a state of being and the actions of the people of Hellfire, so they will enter into the hellfire.
And likewise, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam also gave us a reason for optimism
that somebody will be engaging in the actions of the people of the hill fire. You look at this person and you look at what they're doing. They're on a path that leads nowhere else other than to the Doom of the hellfire. May Allah protect us. Oh,
Except they interrupt that path.
And they change their ways to become the actions of the people of Jelena for your speaker on the hill kita.
And so the decree of a law that they will die comes at that time, when they are engaging in the actions of the people of gender, and they die. And so they are admitted into gender.
And what we learned from this Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
is just like as the popular saying, and the metaphor goes,
that you don't look in a race to who is leading in the beginning.
Because things can change. And there can be curves in the racetrack, and someone can check and someone else can get a burst of energy.
But you look to who is at the front of the race at the end of the race.
And that is the
that is the ending.
I saw the Allahu taala and he narrates that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in an authentic hadith
when I have belly or Allah, I have Bella holy.
The individual that loves the meeting with Allah that is longing and looking forward to the meeting with Allah. Allah is also longing and loving and looking forward to the meeting with that servant.
Woman Carrie Hailey, Allah Carrie, hello Holika
and the one that is hateful and not looking forward to the meeting with Allah, Allah also is not looking forward to meeting that servant.
But a Chateau de la hota and her
her intelligence May Allah bless her our mother, she asked a question that perhaps many of us have on our minds as well. She said O Messenger of Allah.
She said almost all of us, we have some discomfort when it comes to death. Nobody sits there fantasizing about death. It's something scary.
Nobody is looking forward to the moment of dying.
Nobody is looking forward to the moment of leaving their family and their friends and their wealth and their comfort and their luxury and going into a place unknown.
Nobody died and came back to tell us what it's like. We will only know what it's gonna be like when we experience it, other than what a lion is messenger have described to us.
So how our messenger of Allah when we all have this discomfort?
The prophet SAW Selim said, No, it's not like that.
You've misunderstood Asia,
but rather allotment the believer when they're at the time, just before their death, and the Angel of Death is going to extract their soul.
And they will be given Bushra they will be given glad tidings. Congratulations.
Then they know that what is to come next is only far better and greater.
Its reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they long for the meeting with Allah. And Allah loves to meet them as well.
As opposed to that individual when the Angel of Death comes upon them, to remove their soul, and it will be an arduous and a painful process because that soul does not want to leave that body.
And they do not have congratulations.
They realized that what is to come next is punishment and torment, because they live the life of hoffler of heedlessness a life of disobedience of a law, a life of not seizing the opportunities that Allah gave them to come closer to that creator, like what we have right now in this month of Ramadan.
Opera opportunities to come closer to Allah. So because they know that what has to come next is not enjoyable. They hate that meeting. They don't want to meet Allah. They don't want the day of judgment to come.
And Allah likewise does not love to meet them.
You do boo boo. Allah told us in the Quran, on such a day when some faces will be illuminated and bright. And other faces will be in a state of darkness having no light
and those that have the light on their faces. It's because they live the life of obedience to Allah subhana wa tada
and those that have lights devoid of faces devoid of light, it is because they live the life devoid of obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
But there are some people as this hadith told us that live a life of sinful behavior, that never life of heedlessness a life in which they expect
this dunya or at least are behaving as if they expect this dunya to go on forever.
But before that time comes to an end, the repent to Allah subhana wa tada
and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most forgiving.
And that is the mindset that we need to have. Now
as we are about to witness, the ending and the closing of this blessing month
My dear brothers and sisters, we've been on different levels on this month. Some of us Mashallah have been working so hard,
sacrificing sleep, sacrificing wealth, putting in so much effort to do extra, the extra push and they push themselves, they felt tired, but they said, You know what, it's okay. My mind only comes once this year, what if I don't live next to normal, but they gave it their best?
May Allah accept from them.
There are other people who put in a moderate amount of effort hamdulillah Ramadan, they were happy, they did something extra than what they would have done outside of the month of Ramadan. But not that much. They could have done more.
But they did it.
But my dear brothers and sisters and elders, there are some of us who our lives didn't really change very much, if anything at all, from before this month and during the month
didn't make a big difference. Maybe we fasted.
But at the end of the day, we ate so much we made up for all of the lack of food anyways.
Maybe we came to the masjid a couple more times, but we didn't really give it our full attention or heart really wasn't in it.
We were called upon for a call. But we're like, sick and tired of these fundraisers.
We were encouraged to read more Hold on, but we don't know how to read. And these translations are boring.
We were called upon by friends or family members or desires or other distractions that kept us from giving it our 100%.
And if any of us here, feel that we might fall into that category, to notice remember this idea
that a person will be doing the actions of the people of hellfire. But you know what, they changed that road just before the ending.
And that completely changes their condition for eternity.
So although we are on the 28th day of Ramadan,
and although we have passed that famous 27th night,
that's so many people give high regard to so much so that they end up behaving as if it's a day of read and there's no mortal Milan after that, which is problematic.
Ramadan is still not over.
And the chances of ladle are still over.
If we have not shed one tear in the past 28 days, we still have an opportunity to shed some tears, longing for the mercy of Allah. If we did not open the Orion and read it. If we forbade our eyes from looking at the words of Allah, we still have an opportunity to allow these eyes to witness the words of Allah so that these eyes can witness for us on the Day of Judgment. No matter how God him elsina, to whom we're at him.
We make and we accept when Allah tells us in the Quran on the Day of Judgment, their eyes and their ears and their hands, their feet, their vision will be a witness against them on the Day of Judgment. People will be shocked. They'll talk to their own limbs, like what are you doing? We're part of the same team. You're a part of my body. you're witnessing against me? Well karate Judo to him was a hit to Marlena. They said to their own flesh. Why are you witnessing against me? We are having the same
token Allahu Allah v m. Takahashi. Allah is the one that gave us tongues and the ability to speak now the one that gave everything the ability to communicate.
And you behaved in this dunya as if there was not going to be any meeting with Allah. We behaved in this Ramadan, some of us as if it would go on forever, or as if there was nothing really special about it.
And if that was the case, then we still have the opportunity to change that behavior before the ending comes.
And take that as a metaphor, that we still have the opportunity to change our lives. Before that ending comes out of Colombia with me whenever anyone can be Murphy human at with him. No matters maranoa Sofitel la Hollywood a Kumari sadita Muslim a name in Cali them bid for sofiero in LA who will have a photo of him, repent to Allah for he is the most forgiving and most merciful
wa salatu salam ala Milena Viva La masala Sayidina. Muhammad in Africa vasudha Nabeel omiya Allah Allah He was so happy he was a limited Sleeman kathira
if you see any space in front of you, please fill it up right now and move forward as much as you can.
There is a lot of space here in front of the chairs please brothers move forward as much as you can to make space for those that are coming.
Come close to one another level increase the vodka and the gathering
As we come to the conclusion of this blessed month, two things that we should be mindful of
is number one, let us not fool ourselves
by thinking that we have achieved something so great that we have done Allah subhana wa favor.
Whether we work so hard, or just a little bit, or not very much at all.
We have not brought benefit to anyone except our own selves. Allah subhanho wa Taala is not in need of our a beggar. But we are in need of Allahu soprano to either accepting our order from us.
That's number one.
And number two,
although there is some sadness when thinking about the departure of this blessing month,
Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us to rejoice and be happy when he took me Don't
worry to Kabir Allahu Allah Maha Jacko. Complete the appointed time of Ramadan and glorify Allah and exalt a lot and praise Allah subhanaw taala that he has guided you to be able to engage in Nevada in this month, and blessed you to witness yet another month of Ramadan. And that's why making terabit is of the sunan of the prophetic practices of the night before.
The night before aid We begin by increasing integrity in the masajid in the homes in the marketplaces in the streets, wherever we go, Allahu Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar,
should be on our tongues and our minds and our hearts. Allahu subhana wa tada is the one that guided us and blessed us to be able to do any of the good that we did, and we seek His pleasure and we seek acceptance from him. Let us also remember about Zakat will filter some of the aroma of Tafseer they extrapolated the kettle filter from the verse and sola to Allah. Allah Herrmann was a smaller beef Allah, Allah says he is successful the one that did zeca that did purification. They said this is the purification of the cultural fit or purification from any mistakes or shortcomings or mishaps during the month of Ramadan. Whether it be for salah and made mention of his Lord Allahu Akbar and
Salah some of the setup said Salah to eat.
So let us not forget to make sure that we pay our respects and Philip if we have not done so. And of course the mustard here facilitates that for you and delivers it to the needy.
As we conclude, let us remember to never lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada
and let us yearn for the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala let us beg Allah subhana wa tada for his mercy and for his forgiveness. I swear by Allah The one who is forgiven in this month has nothing to be afraid of. And the one who this month ends and they have not been forgiven, has lost everything around him and for Ramadan.
salatu salam May his nose be rubbed in the dirt, the one who witnessed the Ramadan and did not seize the opportunity to be forgiven. Allah subhana wa tada has opened all the doors of forgiveness for us. We beg Allah subhana wa tada for forgiveness Allahumma Filipina or Hamner, or if in a word for an occur in New Zealand. We ask Allah to forgive us and to pardon us and to protect us to conceal our sins to erase the record of our sins. Allahu Melville Anna or Hanna
Barbera Amina now We ask Allah to forgive us and to have mercy
See upon us and to save our necks from the Hellfire or benefit Lana oliwa Deena, we ask Allah to forgive us and forgive our parents or bilham Houma came out of bonuses. We ask Allah to have mercy upon them as they raised us when we were young children. Oh Allah, you are the one who said in the washroom It was your Aquila Shay, My Mercy has encompassed everything. Oh Allah, we beg you to accept us into your mercy. Our law, your mercy is what we seek. Oh Allah, we are here in this Masjid, calling upon your lot. Your servants. Some of us have worshipped you tirelessly in this month over law. Some of us amongst us here are pregnant mothers in law. Some of us are mothers who
gave birth or law Some of us are those who are ill, or law some of us worked very long hours. Although we did not wish you as much as you deserved in this month. But we asked you forgiveness. So a lot. We ask you mercy.
