00:01:49--> 00:02:04

All praise is due to Allah. We praise Him. We seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evil consequences of our actions.

00:02:08--> 00:03:06

Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray. And whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, Nan can guide I testify that there is none worthy of worship but the Almighty Allah alone. And I testify that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is His servant and His Messenger or you who believe.

or you who believe. Keep your duty to Allah, fear him and speak the truth. He will direct you to righteous deeds and will forgive your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed attained a great achievement. The best words are the Divine Words of Allah. And the best guidance is that of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was seldom and the worst things in the religion are the newly invented matters. For all the newly invented matters in religion are an innovation and be there and every bidder is misguidance.

00:03:52--> 00:03:56

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

Well as a matter of rushed

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

whereas in Anna Vera chick

Allahumma in DSL, Oka Mooji blatty, Allah hermetic, whereas in monophyletic.

A couple been selima while he said and saw the PA

was no camera filata was Luca and tefillah was the federal Kalamata alum in NACA and Tala Molho. Yo.

00:05:23--> 00:05:43

So the great companion should that was one of the Allahu Anhu says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me, when you see people are holding gold and silver, people are amassing gold, silver wealth, in our days, dollars.

00:05:45--> 00:05:58

You can amass or the best you can amass is these following words. And it's said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught him he said Allahumma inni slo Katha Berta, Phil Amma

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

or Allah I asked you steadfastness and firmness in this matter, which is the religion

00:06:08--> 00:06:14

Well as a matter either rushed, strong will and resolve upon that which is right

00:06:17--> 00:06:26

was a Luca, as in my favorite was Luca Mooji batura hermetic. And I asked you for the things that bring about your mercy.

00:06:27--> 00:06:31

What is the image theoretic and

00:06:33--> 00:06:47

the demanding tasks, the challenging tasks that bring about your forgiveness. And I asked you for a healthy heart and a truthful tongue.

00:06:48--> 00:06:51

And I asked you from the best of what you know.

00:06:52--> 00:06:56

And I seek Your protection from the evil of what you know.

00:06:57--> 00:07:04

And I seek your forgiveness from what you know. Indeed, you are the one who knows all of the unseen.

00:07:06--> 00:07:13

So this is a treasure that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised the companions

00:07:14--> 00:08:02

to hold on to at times when people amass wealth, when people chase after wealth and status and the pleasures of this world, and people feel proud about how much they make, and how much they can spend. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam gave his companions because in the other narrations of this hadith Shuddha says, cannot assume Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam your alumina had healed Kelly met in a termI the NSA that the Prophet SAW Salem used to teach us meaning frequently, he would recommend that they would learn these words and say these words and obviously there's not there's no words in Islam that are empty of meaning and embodiment. Words hold no value without

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

acting upon them and living their meanings.

00:08:06--> 00:08:13

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam guided his companions to the most precious treasure they could ever hold on to.

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

So he told them, this dua

00:08:19--> 00:08:29

that they should turn to Allah and ask Allah Hi, my name is Luca basophil. Umbra Oh Allah I asked you steadfastness in this matter. In this Deen.

00:08:30--> 00:08:36

I asked you to help me stay firm upon this religion. Until the moment I die.

00:08:38--> 00:08:39


00:08:41--> 00:08:57

there are people who hold on to Islam and practice Islam. But when a fitna or a trial strikes, they lose hearts. And then they start to have doubts about the Lord. Or the temptation is too strong for them to handle.

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

So they turn back on the heels, they give up their faith.

00:09:05--> 00:09:13

They ruin everything that they have done for the sake of Allah and no one is safe from that. No one can be saved from that.

00:09:15--> 00:09:38

Some of the figures in the early generation from a seller they said man I mean Allah Allah Dini, he taught for terrain and celebra who iya he who feels safe and takes their religion and the heart for granted. Allah could take away their religion from them. Because we live in a trial. We live in an ocean of trials, and no one has a guarantee over the hearts.

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself used to make this dua and teach his companions to make this dua. Allah Houma yarmulke liberal Hulu with a bit called Isla de Nick. Oh Allah you are the one who can make the hearts firm. Keep my heart firm upon your religion. That's the prophets of Allah.

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

O'Reilly he was salam. He used to say that every day, every day he would make this dua frequently.

00:10:07--> 00:10:17

So, the Prophet SAW Selim is teaching the Companions here to turn to Allah and ask him for steadfastness, to remain upon this religion, to remain upon the truth.

00:10:21--> 00:10:23

Because no one can guarantee himself

00:10:25--> 00:10:27

and how often you would find a person.

00:10:28--> 00:10:41

Seemingly they are practicing the religion, sometimes openly, calling others to it, seemingly superior to others in their devotion, and in their acts of worship. But what happens after that?

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

They turned to the opposite ways.

00:10:47--> 00:10:54

They fall prey for Shavon they start sometimes even fighting against the truth and the religion.

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

And no one is safe from that. So this is why we need to know that it's not a one merit that keeps us upon Islam. It's Allah subhanho wa taala. If Allah doesn't keep you up on this religion, you will not stay in it. Not even for a second. It's Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:11:14--> 00:11:17

And the Companions used to say hola, hola. Hola. Hola. Hey, Mata Dana.

00:11:19--> 00:11:29

Well, that's also Doctrina when Elsa Lena had it not been for Allah we would not have been guided, we would not have prayed and given sadaqa it's Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:11:31--> 00:11:43

This is why the Muslim is humble. It's not your merit. It's not your intelligence. It's not the goodness of your hearts. It's Allah subhanho wa taala. And Allah told us in the Quran,

00:11:44--> 00:11:49

about the people in Jannah, that they would see this fact. Clearly without a doubt.

00:11:50--> 00:12:19

They would say at hamdulillah Hillary hadn't really heard that what happened 30 Lola and Hidin Allah, Praise be to Allah who guided us to this, had it not been for Allah we would not be guided. So guidance is a gift from Allah. So never feel proud of it. Never take it for granted. Don't take credit for it. It's from Allah. give all the credit to Allah and stay vigilant. Stay careful.

00:12:20--> 00:12:30

Let's shake on, takes you away from the path of Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is steadfastness upon the religion was a localizing meta Allah rushed

00:12:31--> 00:12:33

and asked you the resolve

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

the willpower,

00:12:37--> 00:12:44

the determination to do that which is right. And the roost is a very beautiful word.

00:12:45--> 00:12:50

It signifies a sound mind a good judgment about life and about religion.

00:12:52--> 00:13:09

And this is why the whole of the Allahu Anhu were called the Khalifa of washy dune because they they had the highest level you could think of a reason good judgment, ability to manage a first according to justice, according to the truth.

00:13:10--> 00:13:29

But in a practical way, that's a rushed well as he Matala Rosten these are two things that every believer needs, the will to enter the path and that's Allah Zima and then the steadfastness and continuation upon the path and you can only get those from Allah Subhana Allah Allah

00:13:32--> 00:13:44

was a Luca Mooji batty automatic and I asked you the things that earn me Your Mercy, the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala because without the Mercy of Allah we are lost.

00:13:47--> 00:13:58

And the highest Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is His good pleasure and being entered into Jannah into paradise. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us all from the people of Ghana.

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

So we asked that from Allah.

00:14:02--> 00:14:32

And there is a beautiful secret in this. He didn't say I asked you all your mercy, but he said I asked you for the things that bring your mercy Mooji Bharati emetic because Allah subhanaw taala when he gives his mercy, he creates the reasons the causes for this messy to happen as we said in Allah either Allah che and havia s Baba who when Allah when something he brings about its natural causes to bring it about.

00:14:35--> 00:14:43

So the things that bring about the Mercy of Allah is sincerity in the heart, devotion to greed, oneness, the worship of Allah alone

00:14:45--> 00:14:55

and then acting in accordance with the we and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and living a godly life and honesty and honesty and truth and justice.

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

These are the

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

Things that bring about the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:05--> 00:15:17

Well as a matter of erotic Azima in the Islamic tradition in the Quran and the Sunnah as he made is something that requires that you exert yourself, that you go the extra mile.

00:15:19--> 00:15:30

And that brings the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala because we need the mercy and we need the forgiveness, because all of us in the Maha Maha in the world, all of the sons of Adam,

00:15:32--> 00:15:34

do wrong. All of them fall in error.

00:15:36--> 00:15:58

But the best among all of those who fall in error are the ones who repent. Those who turn back to Allah, those who acknowledge their mistakes. What was the difference between Adam Alehissalaam and Trayvon Adam Alayhis Salam when he committed a sin, when he ate from the aid from the tree, he recognized his sin and he turned to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:00--> 00:16:12

And he said, Wayne Lim, tough Ilana with Al Hamdulillah and Hakuna nominal ha serine if you do not forgive us and give us your mercy, we would be from among the losers, whereas Shavon said and uh huh your own Minho

00:16:13--> 00:16:27

on I'm better than him and he said Furby might have a wait. And he he said to Allah, You sent me a stray you made me you cause me to commit this mistake. That's the difference. So forgiveness was the Hallmark.

00:16:29--> 00:16:42

Or repentance was the hallmark of Adam and Eve, with which he earned the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala was a local band Selena and I asked you for a healthy heart and what a healthy heart is.

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

Healthy Heart is the condition to intergender

00:16:48--> 00:16:54

Allah says your Millennium for Oman on what's going on, in Yemen, at Allah Have you all been sitting

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

on that day, your wealth that people people amass and accumulate?

00:17:02--> 00:17:05

The children that they have and they have pride in

00:17:07--> 00:17:22

will not benefit them, will not avail them. The only thing that will help you on the Day of Judgment is a sound heart, a healthy heart that has Allah in it, the love of Allah, the fear of Allah.

00:17:24--> 00:17:49

The humanity before your Creator, that's the heart that enters you into Jana was Alucobond Salim and your heart is in the hands of Allah. It's in the hands of Allah, we are helpless. We are helpless. We can't guide ourselves no matter how intelligent you are, how resourceful you are, how skillful you are, how insightful you are, if Allah doesn't guide you, you will never be guided.

00:17:51--> 00:17:59

We have to absorb that we have to live by this humility. Otherwise, chiffon can use our arrogance to take us to the Hellfire

00:18:03--> 00:18:22

was a Luca Caliban Salema because if you if your heart is sound, then everything else in your life will follow suit. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Neville just said the MOBA, either solid had solid health just had a cola, or either faster that faster than just

00:18:23--> 00:18:54

olive oil. Indeed, in the body, there is a morsel of flesh, that if it's intact and in good shape, then the whole body will be in good shape. But if it's corrupted, then the whole body will be corrupted. So if your heart is not Salim is not healthy and sound, then you actions will not be sound. There are people who, you know go to extreme lengths and beautifying and perfecting their external actions without even

00:18:55--> 00:19:09

considering the hearts without checking, are they doing these actions and these good deeds in Love of Allah in obedience to Allah? Or are they doing that for some personal gain, no matter how subtle that is?

00:19:13--> 00:19:21

Was a Luca Colburn selima while he served and sadaqa and the tongue that tells the truth, a tongue that is truthful.

00:19:22--> 00:19:39

Because if your heart is sound, then a natural consequence of that is that your tongue will tell the truth. You know, for a believer if they attempt to tell a lie, even if, as they say, white lie.

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

There is a pinch in their heart.

00:19:43--> 00:19:49

There is a cringe that runs through their body because they're violating the law when they lie.

00:19:50--> 00:19:52

When they don't tell the truth.

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

People think you can lie and get away with it. You ruin your heart when you lie. There is a link there

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

is a feed between your heart and your tongue when your heart lies. There is a dark spot on your heart. There is a wound that you create in your heart. So don't lie no matter what.

00:20:12--> 00:20:18

Don't allow lying to be part of your life. Don't let your tongue take to lying.

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

A true believer when they are about to tell a lie, the tongue freezes they can't.

00:20:27--> 00:20:28

It burns them.

00:20:29--> 00:20:38

It pains them why? Because the heart loves Allah. And Allah cannot go with the love of Allah

00:20:39--> 00:20:40

when he signed on Sadiq Khan

00:20:45--> 00:20:46

what I said okay

00:20:53--> 00:20:54

that was the frontline.

00:21:05--> 00:21:13

Of hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali he was heavy he made so I skipped the part before that so I'm gonna go back to it

00:21:15--> 00:21:17

was a local emoji vertical we did that

00:21:19--> 00:21:21

was coming clearly matter

00:21:22--> 00:21:28

where it will be mentioned, rematch LM, and it asks you from what you know is best.

00:21:29--> 00:21:31

Because, you know, we can

00:21:32--> 00:21:42

improvise and try to understand according to our intellect, according to our sciences, according to our knowledge and our expertise, we can try to figure out

00:21:43--> 00:21:44

what's good for us.

00:21:45--> 00:21:49

But no one truly knows what's good except Allah subhanaw taala

00:21:50--> 00:22:01

because life is complex, and sometimes there are things that are good, but we perceive them as bad for us. And Allah says, what I said unto him Bucha why Santa Clara who che and

00:22:02--> 00:22:28

why certain to hit Bucha and one was shot walakum wa Allahu Allah more Antonella Telemon, perhaps, and how often you would hate something, when it's actually good for you. Or you would love something, when it's actually harmful to you. And Allah knows and you don't know. So that's why he said, Turn your affairs to Allah. Ask him or Allah I asked you the best, according to your knowledge, give me the best

00:22:30--> 00:22:35

and repel the evil according to your knowledge because I don't know I rely on you to help me.

00:22:39--> 00:22:46

Worse the filmmaker me Matt Allen, and I seek forgiveness out of what you know, what does that mean?

00:22:47--> 00:23:12

There's beauty in this word. There's so much beauty in this word. I seek forgiveness or ask forgiveness for what you know. You ask forgiveness, for what? For your sins, for your flaws. So you are acknowledging in this statement that Oh Allah, you know my flows, and how daring I am to know that you know what I do, and then I still go against your command.

00:23:14--> 00:23:33

So there is acknowledgement of one's crimes, or Allah I seek your forgiveness or asked for forgiveness from what you know the sins that you know, the sins that I have committed the sins in my heart that no one sees but you and the sins that are exposed and done in the open.

00:23:35--> 00:23:40

The sins of lack of sincerity, love for this dunya

00:23:41--> 00:23:50

contempt and disdain to others to the creation of Allah, arrogance, subtle arrogance, self admiration in the heart.

00:23:52--> 00:23:58

And then the external sins that we all know about, and we all obsessed about.

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

In Naka, Anta Allama, who indeed you are the one who knows all of the unseen

00:24:06--> 00:24:28

that's a beaut. This is more important than the treasure of any of all the gold and the silver and the dollars and the villas and the Yaks and the properties that people amass because they're gonna leave them they will leave them and a lot of these wealth if the person doesn't believe in Allah and doesn't use this wealth to please Allah subhanho wa Taala what will happen?

00:24:29--> 00:24:46

It will dark in their heart, it will ruin the heart and keep them away from Allah subhanaw taala and eventually what will happen they'll end up in the Hellfire they will leave the moment of death. Nothing goes with you, everything leaves you but the things that you have done for the sake of Allah

00:24:49--> 00:25:00

so this is why it's the most important treasure. And every believer every Muslim should come to contemplate these words and turn to Allah subhanaw taala ask him for these treasures these beautiful

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

All things. Yes, survive in this world. Do your best in this world. But don't let this world be your ultimate goal. Everything Oh, everything relationships, businesses, and diverse projects. Everything you do everything you engage, engage in this life is there just to help you, you know, have this journey as you go into Allah, that's it. That's its value. It doesn't have any intrinsic in a value. It doesn't have value, its utility. It just something if you need it, you use it, to take you to the next step on the path to Allah, that's it. It shouldn't become a goal. You shouldn't live just for the sake of wealth for the sake of fame, for the sake of social status for the sake of anything but

00:25:46--> 00:25:49

Allah subhanaw taala that's how I believe we should live.

00:25:51--> 00:26:05

Even your professional success and career shouldn't be for Allah. That's what it's meant for. Not for itself, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide us to the best. And at the end, I conclude with one thing

00:26:07--> 00:26:19

you know, running the masjid like this, with two buildings with a school with all the activities, the Quran classes, and the helicopters that are here and the Imams and the Iftar and

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

Hamdulillah we are blessed to have

00:26:23--> 00:26:47

a group of amazing Imams to lead the Salah and help us worship Allah subhanaw taala there are people who can give guidance, there are people who work in the background, there is utilities, there's a lot of expenses that go along with running a facility like that. And you know, there is no Alkaff there is no Ministry of Islamic affairs that can provide and that can support you know masajid and institutions like that.

00:26:49--> 00:26:57

So that requires the general contributions of the community itself. And the message is running low on funds.

00:26:59--> 00:27:00

is running low on funds.

00:27:01--> 00:27:19

And you know when you give from your plug in you get from what you love and Allah Subhana Allah says lengthen our own battle heterotrophic woman matter hipbone, you will not reach bill which is the highest level of righteousness of Taqwa. You will not reach that until you pay from what your your heart is attached to, from the wealth that you love.

00:27:21--> 00:27:30

You feel you want to keep it you feel you want to use it, you feel you want to spend it on something personal, but Allah says when you give from that, that's when you reach the highest level.

00:27:31--> 00:27:33

So the masjid needs your help
