Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar La ilaha illallah who Allahu Akbar, Allah Allahu Akbar, wala Hill and my brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that Allah Almighty says, There are no deeds that the son of Adam does that are more loved to me than those I have made compulsory upon him. Hence, I encourage you to become strong on the pillars that Allah has set out for us to live our lives by. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illa Allahu Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar one Allah Hill Hammond, the first
pillar of Islam being the declaration of the shahada, a shadow Allah ilaha illallah wa shadow ana Muhammadan rasul Allah, I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad peace be upon him is the messenger of Allah. That is the declaration of faith. We utter it with our tongues, we believe it in our hearts, and we practice and use our limbs and organs in order to confirm what we've stated with our tongues and what is in our hearts. That is the declaration of the faith. And the first and most important pillar of Islam. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wala Hill Hamed. The next pillar of Islam the
five daily prayers, my brothers, my sisters, Ramadan should have given us the dedication to pray more and to increase beyond that which is compulsory to that which is voluntary in terms of what we know as sunnah and nothing against Allah Almighty says when my worship continues beyond that, which is compulsory getting into that which is Sunnah and nothing, he arrives at a new level of relationship with Me meaning with Allah subhanho wa taala. So, do not be lazy with your five daily prayers. It requires discipline, it requires effort, it requires you to fight your laziness, you must fulfill your Salah on time, your lives will change by the will of Allah Allahu Akbar, Allahu
Akbar, La ilaha illallah who Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa ala Hill Hamlet, all of us are in need of Allah. Allah tells us get acquainted with me during days of ease, and I will get a queen
sit with you during your days of hardship and difficulty. The problem was humankind we turn to Allah only during hardship and when we are in ease we tend to forget Allah subhanho wa Taala let's not do that we change ourselves today on this beautiful day of rejoicing by promising Allah that we will be regular with what is known as a man who deen the founding pillar of Islam the pillar of the five daily prayers, Allah had to levy by Nana Verbena whom was Salah,
the method that distinguishes us from those who are not Muslim, the five daily prayers may Allah Almighty strengthen us upon these my brothers, my sisters, no matter how much we speak about the five daily prayers, it will not be enough. But we must fight our laziness you will see your life change the timings that Allah has chosen for these prayers, absolutely unique divine designed by Allah to improve not just our lives, but to be the key to the door of entry into Jannah and paradise for yourselves and myself. The closest you can ever get to the one who made you is in a posture known as sujood a caribou Maya kulula Abdullah Ravi Wahoo Sajid Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar La ilaha
illallah who Allahu Akbar, Allah Allahu Akbar wala Hill humble. Then we have the pillar of Islam that we have just engaged in this entire month of Ramadan so dedicated, you're not allowed to give up the fast without a valid excuse. If you're unwell or you are traveling or you have a valid excuse, then you may make that fast up later on after the month of Ramadan, but without a valid excuse. It is considered a major sin to be lazy and not too fast in the month of Ramadan. How could we have brought down a pillar of Islam we thank Allah that we fasted for the entire month. Here we are in our 1000s celebrating the beauty of the softening of our hearts through the fasting through
the charities through the prayer through much more May Allah Almighty accept your prayers, my brothers, my sisters, may Allah grant us forgiveness, my brothers, my sisters, may Allah Almighty accept from us the charities and whatever else we have done in terms of remembrance of Allah in terms of recitation of the Quran, it is a month of fasting indeed, a pillar of Islam. Together with it comes the remembrance of Allah. To recite the Quran in the month of Ramadan is so powerful, we did it we heard the Quran we listened to it, we paid attention we tried to learn its meaning but we will continue outside the month of Ramadan and we will not quit reading the Quran we will not quit
the prayer we will not quit the voluntary fasting keep it up by brothers and sisters.
Keep up the fasting of the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him on a Monday and a Thursday Your lives will change your health will improve as a bonus but the intention is to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Keep up the Sunnah of fasting the three days in the month, the 13th 14th and 15th of the lunar calendar. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah Allah Hill, Hamed, my brothers, my sisters, the remembrance of Allah that we engaged in in the month of Ramadan should not stop the lord of Shawwal and the Lord of Ramadan is the same Lord. Remember to pick up your Quran on a daily basis, start your day with even one verse. And nowadays we are so fortunate we have the applications on our phones to assist us to read the Quran. We have no excuse one verse. Is that too much? Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Allahu Allahu Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah Allah in Hamden. My brothers and sisters, as we pray for those who are struggling across the globe. We must remember the help of Allah will only come to us
as humankind. If we decide to change our lives in Allah Allah yoga you Roma be comin hatha yoga. Yiruma be unfussy him, Allah will not change the condition of a people or a nation from bad to good unless they change themselves individually and collectively, all of them so I need to help the Ummah I need to help the rest of the nation. I need to help humanity by improving myself so that the condition of everyone can improve Allah Who
Akbar Allahu Akbar La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, one Illa Hill ham, my brothers, my sisters, we have another pillar of Islam known as zakat. Zakat is to give part of your wealth to charity, in a compulsory way, unique way because Allah does not want you to be so attached to material wealth, that you do something wrong to achieve it or to earn it. Allah does not want you to attach so much that you do not
reach out to those who need those who are in need for the sake of Allah. If Allah wanted, he would not have made anyone poor. But Allah created us upon different levels of sustenance, in order that we reach out to one another, and we prove that our connection is not with material items, but it is with Allah subhanho wa Taala Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar La ilaha illallah who Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wala he'll humble.
Continue your charities, my brothers, my sisters, even after Ramadan, wherever there is a need Give, give from Zakah and give from your own voluntary charities over and above the zakah. Today we should have commenced the day by giving out a charity because no one's fasting is truly accepted unless they have given zakat on Fedora or sadaqa told Phaedra that which is reaching out to the poor so that they too can enjoy the day of Eid. No one should go hungry on this day. This day. Fasting is prohibited by the instruction of Allah Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar what Allah he'll handle my brothers, my sisters then we have the fifth pillar of
Islam, the pilgrimage what I will say about it from this pulpit on this beautiful day. May Allah make it easy for all of us to visit the holy lands of Mecca and Medina for her Jana ombre over and over again say Amin, my brothers my sisters, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illa Allah Allahu Allahu Akbar, Allah Allahu Akbar wala in Hamden.
