Rashid Bin Mohammed – Ramadan Gathering 2017
smilla rahmanir rahim In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala Most Gracious, Most Merciful Alhamdulillah All praise is indeed due to Allah subhanho wa Taala wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was happy to Jemaine blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household his companions May Allah bless them all. May Allah bless every one of us and May Allah bless humanity at large. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us mercy in this beautiful month of Ramadan. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who are granted freedom from Hellfire and entry into general for those I mean, my beloved brothers and sisters, it is
absolutely important for us to realize that this month of Ramadan is a month we're in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala descends on to the earth. And every single person is granted the mercy of Allah if he or she would like to achieve that Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this month of Ramadan is a month wherein every night there are names of people who are granted freedom from hellfire. So make your name from among those names by seeking the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala if we are to ask Allah protection from Hellfire thrice every day, Hellfire itself asks Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to protect us from it. So it is amazing how Allah subhanho wa Taala has
granted us such a favor if we were to ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah genma tool for DOS Allahumma inmy as a local Jana Oh Allah I asked you Jenna, if you repeat that three times every day, then Jen itself asks Allah subhanho wa Taala to give you Jenna, so you'd better say Allah home in me as a local Jana,
my beloved brothers and sisters, we are going to be speaking for the next hour about the deeds that we need to do in order to get paradise. We know that we would like goodness in this world and the next the two hours that we are taught in the Quran, Rabanne
Deena dunia has Anna Warfield. He has been working
on our grant as goodness in this world, and grant us goodness in the next and save us from the fire or the punishment of the Fire. Let's do it goes to show that what is important for you and I we want a decent life on earth. And on top of that, we would like a decent death. And we would like that which is good in the hereafter. We also would like to be saved from the punishment in the grave from the punishment of the hellfire. So we asked this to Allah subhanho wa Taala but he taught us some simple things to do to earn genital fair dose. Remember my brothers and sisters, genitals are those is the paradise that belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala he owns it and he will decide what deeds you
will do that will deserve entry into Jenna but ultimately, it is His mercy to lie, wa jal the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that will actually make us enter into genital Pharaohs this evening, Mashallah. We fulfilled beautiful salata. tarawih How do I know that Allah subhanho wa Taala has accepted it, I hope in his mercy because I tried my best right. Sometimes the concentration span is not 100% sometimes we could have done better sometimes we have a small distraction yet this is Salah for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala my brothers and sisters Your duty is to try your best when you ask Allah or Bana taka bannermen in
the semi online learning or accepted from us For indeed you are all hearing you are all knowledgeable. So my beloved brothers and sisters, the first reason or the first point that we would need to have within us in order to earn genital fair dose is a man who Billa to believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala a person who does not believe in the hereafter What do they want? They are people who believe that this is just the world we'll call illuma here in La Jolla tuna dunia Namo Tijuana here. They
said the co founder of courage they used to say it is only this worldly life, we are dying and we will be alive. That's it. There is nothing more than death and life, nothing in the hereafter for them, can they expect Jenna can they expect paradise when they did not believe in it? So to expect Gen metal filters we need to believe that after death, there is something indeed I will be taken account of La sub everything is going to be taken account of and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala always tells us two things are needed from us. Not only man but together with a man there is something known as an AMA lasala which means good deeds. Every time Allah says
when levena Amano Amina Swanee hace una eco
indeed those who believe and do good deeds for them, they will be the the dwellers of Jenna or of paradise. So remember my brothers and sisters, it's not enough for us to say I'm a believer and you stop there without doing anything. You still need to do good deeds and what are these good deeds? They are the good deeds that were taught to us by Allah subhanho wa Taala through the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who really believe and do good deeds. Secondly, what we need to realize is the consciousness of Allah. We need to be conscious of Allah at all times, whatever you do, remember, you are answerable to Allah, Allah
is watching. There is a record being taken. Remember that? Now we are in the month of Ramadan. Did you know that the verse that makes the fasting prescribed actually has at the end of it the reason of the prescription of fasting, you may have heard this so many times. Let's read the verse Surah Al Baqarah Yeah, are you levina Amano kuchibhotla como sia mahkamah kuchibhotla la vena cava De La La Puente qu O you who believe fasting has been prescribed upon you in the same way it was prescribed upon those before you in order that you achieve taco taco is the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you are conscious of Allah, you are aware of what goes into your mouth, you are aware of
what comes out of your mouth, you are aware of your actions, your deeds, your words, your movements, you are aware of everything because you are conscious of Allah. So let's learn to develop this as well. The fasting month is a beautiful month whereby we can develop these beautiful qualities for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. What is also absolutely important my brothers and sisters, something that is a gift of Allah, you know what it is something known as a Toba repentance, the seeking of forgiveness and the forgiveness of Allah. It is a gift. When I make a mistake. Imagine if Allah did not forgive what would happen, we would be doomed because every one of us makes mistakes.
Couldn't no Bunny, Adama Kappa, all the children of Adam, they make many mistakes. The term hapa in the Arabic language refers to one who makes so many mistakes, not just one. But the Hadith says well, Hyrule hopper in a tow boat. The best from among those who makes mistakes, is he or she who constantly repents to Allah, so seek Allah's forgiveness. Do you know what Allah subhanho wa Taala says? He says,
In fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala when he speaks about Toba, he says, you know, he speaks about the punishment of Allah and then he makes an exception. And he says, In llama,
man our ami lasagna, for una una una
That is a verse of sort of millennium, where Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the punishment and then he says the exception, which means those who will not be punished are those who asked allows forgiveness and they do good deeds thereafter. Allah says they will be granted entry into genital fair dose. In fact, in Surah Al Baqarah, Allah subhanho wa Taala also speaks about those who have committed immorality. They did something wrong. They committed adultery, fornication, they were engaged in immoral behavior. Allah says if they reflect immediately and they repent immediately and they turn to Allah, Allah says we will forgive them and if they change their ways, they will be the
ones who will enter genital fair dose. It means my brothers and sisters, Jenna will be filled with people who made mistakes but sought the forgiveness of Allah Subhana
hautala because all of us are prone to making errors. So it is not like any one of us is absolutely perfect. If you want gentlemen Don't lose hope. There is still a chance of you to go to Jenna and for me to by doing what turned to Allah asked him to forgive you. If Allah forgives, you are the one who will enter genital filters and this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala has promised us another quick way of making your path to Jenna very easy, is in the hadith of Abu huraira Allah and which is reported in Sahih Muslim where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says man Salah Qatari Can you help me Sufi? Hyndman sahal Allahu Allahu be he para el Jenna whosoever treads a path to seek
knowledge Allah makes through that effort of his the path of entry into Jenna, easy for him. Tonight we've come here to do what to learn something. I pray that Allah accepted from us. We want to be motivated. We want to feel good about our Islam and Eman. We want to come close to Allah we want to change our ways and habits. We want to listen to a lecture that will inshallah educate us we want some knowledge. So therefore, my brothers and sisters, it is important for you to know that this effort you have made is considered by Allah. It is written down by the angels they know and Allah knows. And Allah says because of this effort, he makes your path to gender very easy. Now you might
want to know how very simple when you come, your heart is softened. You start asking Allah forgiveness. You promise Allah to read Salah you promise Allah to change your ways and your habits. As a result, your path to gender is made easy. This is why seek knowledge, make an effort to go make an effort to attend, attend the lectures and the lessons of the oma make sure that you are there because I promise you the mercy of Allah descends upon a gathering such as this in the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala It is amazing how Allah subhanho wa Taala has bestowed upon us favor upon favor. He wants to give us Jenna, this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says could
look him to the hallucinogenic ilam and Abba Killa Manya by Rasul Allah tala man aka Ronnie the halogen woman asani faqad Abba, every one of you will enter Jannah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, besides he who refuses to enter Paradise, so the Sahaba said who would refuse to enter paradise? So he said, Whoever follows me will enter Jannah whoever does not follow me has refused. They have refused to enter genital hurdles. So this is something that is absolutely important. This is a way to enter gender neutral fair dose by seeking knowledge. Another way of entering genital fair those my brothers and sisters is Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wasallam says monosol birthday in the Salah Jana. What that means is whoever makes sure that they read Salatu will Fado and Salatu will also they will intergender That does not mean they are to Salas for a Muslim you know you cannot take the Hadith and say right I heard the Hadith tonight. I'm going to read to Salah out of five that means I will go to Jenna no because those Salah are quite difficult because people are sleeping early morning and you know how difficult it is to get up for Salah to go to the masjid that smallest crowd is for for Joel Salatin ask why in the afternoon people have a siesta. People like to sleep people have a little bit of what is known as a Lula they
want to rest they feel lazy to get a four salata acid, okay, I'm going to go I'm not going to go. The Hadith says if you can forsake your bedding and get into the masjid or fulfill your Salah for you is Jenna mon Sol burden, the whole agenda look at how simple the Hadith words it whoever makes sure that you read these two, that when they are most difficult it means the other three will be easier for them. If you do that, which is very hard. You know when you have a mathematics examination, and you answer the very difficult questions for you One plus one is nothing they don't even need to ask you so Allah because you have answered extremely difficult questions. The same
would apply if you are doing that which is hard for you to do that which is simple and easy, is actually a given May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us general fair dose.
Similarly, another very important quality, a person who fulfills Hajj when it is compulsory upon him or her to fulfill Hajj, obviously, we need to follow the rules and the laws. You know, you don't just break the rules and laws and fulfill the Hajj against the rules but you fulfill the rules regulations, and you have made sure that you did your Hajj you need to know that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again in a hadith of Abu huraira Allah and he says Alhambra to LLM rashica fara to Lima in Houma.
La sallahu jazza on inland Jana
One ombre between it and the next camera that you make, will expiate the sins between the two cameras, you will achieve forgiveness so make Amara in abundance if you can, because you will achieve forgiveness of the sins between the two. But when you fulfill your Hajj, the reward of an accepted Hajj is only Jenna. It is nothing besides genital Pharaohs, and this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Raja koyomi wala omo a person comes back from Hajj similar to the day or as clean as the day that his mother gave birth to him. May Allah make it easy for us to go for Hajj and May Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted from us and May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us
the ability to thank him I mean, brothers and sisters another special way of entering genital fair dose is to fast often for the sake of Allah. Fasting is not only in the month of Ramadan, in the month of Ramadan, it is compulsory for
shahida como shahara.
Whoever witnesses the month of Ramadan, should fast that's the instruction of Allah in Surah Al Baqarah. But we need to know something. They are voluntary fasts just like Salah there is forever, there is sooner there is nothing. The same applies to zakka. There is that which is far as compulsory and that which is nanofiller, you can give sadaqa that you can do good deeds for the sake of Allah. The same applies when it comes to the issue of fasting. You fast during the month of Ramadan, the Hadees Jasmine sama Ravana, Tomas Babu, Sita Misha well kinda Casa Yama
and you know that is because we actually am Talia whoever first Ramadan and follows it through with fasting six days of the next month which is known as shell Well, they do not have to be consecutive they can be separated no problem. Allah says you will have the reward of having fasted the entire year, because your good deed is multiplied by 10 one month of Ramadan multiplied by 10 you got 10 months, the six days multiplied by 10 you got 60 days 60 days is two months 10 months plus two months is one whole year. You have the reward of the whole year but there is another super fast three days every lunar month 13th 14th and 15th. They are known as a yam will be you fast those
three days you have the reward of having fasted the entire month, because three by 10 is 30. Then two days a week Monday and Thursday so now of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam I promise you my brothers and sisters if you try to achieve this, you will earn Jenna not any ordinary Jenna through a special door known as Arabian ucol hula hula hora Yan. It is a door known as unwra yan only for those who are fasting for the sake of Allah. And this fasting is done because it disciplines you when you are fasting. What immorality are you going to do? What sins are you going to do? What Salah Are you going to miss? You have so much spare time lunchtime you don't need to worry about your
Salah. There is no lunch for you. You go for Allah Subhana Allah it increases your closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala so you will enter agenda from a special door brothers and sisters today to lose weight. We are ready to fast unfortunately some people gain weight in the month of Ramadan you know that because what happens is when they get too far they think they are doing Kabbalah for what they have missed. And they eat and eat and they eat after taraweeh and they eat again and again. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us realize that Ramadan yes it is a month of goodness and happiness but it is a month of discipline. We need to discipline ourselves. So if you can discipline yourself in
Ramadan inshallah outside the month of Ramadan you will achieve lots of goodness and the doors of gentleness will be opened wide. On the last day of Ramadan it is known as laylatul Jaya Iza. Once the moon is sited, the prize giving comes out and the Hadith says Allah subhanho wa Taala he boasts to the angels about us that Do you know what is the reward of my worshiper who stayed away from his food and his drink and his desires only for me Subhana Allah. So the angels obviously they are waiting for what Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying, and he says, wish he do come and neither for too long. I make you Oh angels, bear witness that I have forgiven them Subhan Allah,
that is the eve of eat. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us deserving of it. If you have fasted and if you have student tarawih you deserve a day of happiness, that day of happiness is to earn the pleasure of Allah. It is not a day of sin. Some people the alcohol comes out on the day of eat, the harem comes out the day of eat, the clothing, everything that they were wearing correctly, it all goes back into the cupboard and all the nakedness comes out on the day of eat. That's not what either
is all about. It is a day of happiness to make a lot of happy not to make shavon happy. Allah gave you the whole month of goodness. Now I want you to promise yourself and to promise Allah this IE we will not do anything to displease Allah. We will only do that to please Allah get up in the morning and you obey Allah read some nephila read some Quran Mashallah, this is the month of the Quran. It does not mean Mashallah was the moon cited? Yes, it was okay close the Quran. That's not what it is. If the moon was cited, we need to read more of the Quran. Because now Allah has given us the gift. Amazing. So my beloved brothers and sisters, that is one of the gifts of Allah subhanho wa Taala
regarding siyam another very important hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which is the hadith of Robbie niqab and Islamic Allah when he says once I came to Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam with a bit of water for his Whoo. And with that water, he told me sell which means Ask, ask what you want Subhan Allah imagine Mohammed Salah Allah said I'm saying ask, What do you want? What would you say? You know what he says? As Luca Mora Hakata caffeine Jana. He says, I asked you for your companionship in general. Wow. Wow.
Look at how beautiful I think our children would ask for an iPhone. They would ask for something else. They might ask for a Lamborghini. You know, what do you ask Subhana Allah, but he says Luca modificata caffiene Jana. I asked you your companionship in general fair dose. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, help yourself to achieve that by katraj to sujood by prostrating a lot. Help yourself, you can get it. Any one of us can get more Africa to Nabeel Salam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we are not Sahaba we are not companions in the dunya but that does not negate the fact that we can be companions in the hereafter Don't you know that? How? By following his Sunnah
following his path, and by ensuring that we fulfill our Salah. Now, if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says you help yourself to achieve this by engaging in prostration a lot, it means your Salah is in order, but over and above that, make sure that you find yourself in prostration my brothers, my sisters, when we fulfill our five daily Salah, I request you to think about the time that you spend in the most powerful position you can ever be in. And that is sujood acabo Maya Kunal Abdullah Biggio, who was the closest that a slave can be to Allah subhanho wa Taala is in the condition of such data. I want you to ask yourself, What is your relationship with such data? Ask yourself, how
long do you take in the most powerful position and improve it please improve it for the sake of Allah, there is no better place that you could actually put your head on than the ground for Allah. It is the closest you can get to Allah. Please take your time. Think about it from today. The lesson is for me inshallah an encouragement for myself and for every one of you to say, please take more time in solitude because you don't know when Next you will be able to prostrate for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is why Allah subhana wa Taala warns those who don't want to go into servitude, that on the Day of Judgment, when they will be called to make sudo to Allah, they
won't be able to in the hereafter May Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us. Then we have another very, very important way of entering Jenna.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has so many names, so many names, way beyond 120 140. In fact, we don't know the exact number of names that Allah subhanho wa Taala has, he has beautiful names, but there are 99 Names of Allah subhanho wa Taala if you were to memorize 99 of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala you know them, you memorize them, you understood them, you live by them, you use them to call out to Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Whoever does that, the whole agenda, they will be granted entry into general because they have recognized Allah. Allah is the Most Merciful or Rahim, the Most Merciful Subhan Allah, what are the names? there? are so many names of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Have we ever understood them? Many of us we might have a little YouTube clip play or a clip on our phone sometimes a ringtone? Yeah, man. Hola, hola, de la ilaha illa who and I'm sure you know what I'm talking about with the names of Allah and we hear them and sometimes we know a few of them. But have you ever sat and thought about the meanings of these names? Do you know what exactly they entail if you make a small effort
Allah says in Allah hit Allah This isn't a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It's a hadith of Abu huraira al Bukhari. He says, Allah has 99 names which if you were to memorize you would get Jana Manasa. Ha, ha ha ha de la Jana. Whoever memorizes them and has encompassed them will be granted Jenna this does not only mean to know them of by heart but you are living in the nightclubs or you are living in Haram. No. You need to know them and try your best to live by them. Remember this evening? The key word is Try. Try your best. Keep trying. Don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah no matter what you have done. One of the ways of ending Jelena I told you is seeking the
forgiveness of Allah. Allah says gulia Abadi, alladhina sama for Allah.
Sallam tell my worshipers who have transgressed against themselves who have committed sin against themselves. Never lose hope in the mercy of Allah. Allah will forgive all of your sins For indeed he is most forgiving, Most Merciful. This verse proves that anyone who loses hope in Allah is insulting Allah. When Allah told you don't lose hope and you are losing hope you are telling him I know better than you is through law. Don't ever do that. Don't allow the devil to make you think that you are hopeless. No, you can never be hopeless no matter what Allah loves you That is the reason why you will hear good words you will feel motivated. You will feel the closeness to Allah seek Allah
protection from the devil, and Allah will grant you that protection. But you've got to keep trying. Try keep trying my brothers and sisters, no point in saying Oh Allah helped me to stay away from shaper while you are going to steal while you are going to deceive and cheat on the way you know the thief on the way to go and steal he makes you a card of Salah Oh Allah helped me in my job tonight. That's not going to work. That is that is actually playing the fool with Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant agenda to those now we want to move on to some of the characteristics. You see there is a hadith where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaks of personal holyoake
good character. And he says myself and the one who has good character will be together in Jannah.
good character. Many of us think that Islam is only about Salah, and that's it. You know, Koran, and I dress appropriately. I've got a nice big name that sounds very Islamic. I look like a good Muslim. I read my Salah. And that's it. Subhana Allah, and I listened to Quran in my car. So now I'm going to go to Jenna. But how do you talk to people, your family, your wife, your husband? How do you talk to your children, those whom you work with your interaction? What type of words do you use? How much time do you spend with people? Do you smile? Do you ever smile? A smile is a charity and that charity can earn you Jenna, did you know that so you learn to smile. So panela the best smile comes
from those who don't have teeth. Did you know that? Because it is genuine when you have nice teeth. Some people just want to show the teeth so they smile. But imagine the older people who don't have teeth are missing. And they smile at you without even wanting to that to do that meaning they know that they don't even have anything to show you that is genuine legitimate. Let it be genuine break into a beautiful smile. My beloved brothers and sisters May Allah grant us the ability to smile in general for those. So
remember that if you are to alleviate the suffering of someone in this world, Allah will alleviate your suffering in this world and the next, if you help someone in the dunya Allah will help you in this world and in the next no matter who that person is. So above or below man who makes mention of a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wherein he said there was a man who was passing a path and he noticed a shrub that was growing on that particular path. And he decided, you know what, people are going to walk on this path, they are going to perhaps get hurt and injured by this shop. Let me spend the moment to remove it, and he removed it and he threw it aside. So the Prophet
sallallahu wasallam says, Allah loves the deed so much that he granted him entry into gender, because he saved people. It's known as email to each other and he removed harm from the path of the people. So Allah loves the deed and gave him gentlemen, how many of us would stop
In order to remove harm from the path, just because someone else is going to be saved from that harm, and this would include the non Muslims to, to protect a non Muslim from harm is also the same act of worship, because it is a general path. Imagine if we were to protect everyone humanity at large, they would look at us and they would say, these are the deeds that actually earn a person genital fair dose. This is what the Muslims are taught. Let us try our best to learn what this Islam is. And once they learn, they will at least respect the deen. Today, you know, we are living in an age where people are looking at Islam with an eye of skepticism. You know that? whose job is it to
change that well lie we all need to prove that Islam is the best faith. It teaches us from the top to the bottom, character, conduct cleanliness, everything Subhan Allah, if we reach out to all I'm sure many of us seated here, if not almost all of us, somewhere up the ladder. Our forefathers were not Muslim. They were not Muslim. What happened? Someone somehow somewhere whether we know or we don't know, made an effort and worked on them. So they accepted Islam. Today we are in the house of Allah. So in the same way you need to make an effort on other people how by being kind to them, be honest, be upright. Don't be immoral. Don't be cheap in your character and your conduct. May Allah
subhanho wa Taala grant us is then another way of earning Jenna.
The Hadith says and this is a beautiful Hadith also in Sahih al Bukhari of the founder of the Allah and men ban Allah He must didn't ban Allahu Allahu beighton regenda
whoever builds a Masjid for the sake of Allah, Allah builds a house for him in general. So you need to build a machine for the sake of Allah and Allah will build for you a house in general. Now you might be sitting here and thinking I don't have the money, right? I don't have the money. What should I do? Well, I tell you contribute somehow towards the building of a house because when Allah gives you he's not just going to give you one brick. If there was a full message and one brick was mine, I'm quite certain the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala will give me the whole house. Allahu Akbar. So contribute also. Take pride in the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you see dirt, pick
it up. This is the house of Allah. You don't like dirt in your own house? Why do we put dirt in the house of Allah? When we use the bathroom or when we are making we do make sure that you leave the place clean. It's the house of Allah. Many people don't do this. They don't realize the value of the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala Muslims are guilty of having a filthy place of ablution because they think you know what, there are workers who will clean it. My brother, would you be happy for that to happen in your own house? The answer is no. Don't do it for the house of Allah. It is a higher house than yours. Subhana Allah Today we are seated here, Masha Allah tabarrok Allah we make
dua for those who've made this a reality. We have some of the most beautiful masajid on earth in this beautiful country. Clean, lovely air condition. Lovely sound absolutely amazing facility. Make dua for the people but contribute positively in this house. Don't come and make a mess. Don't be a nuisance in this house of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness in the dunya as well as the Akira. Remember my brothers and sisters, to go to the masjid is also a very very great way of earning Jenna
The Hadith says Bashir al Masha in a field Lula mi Ll messaggi di binu return me yo malkia give good news to those who walk to the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the darkness that on the Day of Judgment, they will have a full nor
go to the machine. The machine is around the corner you hear the event, we are lazy. We have no excuse for life. We are living in a country every few kilometers there is a machine. We have no excuse. What about those who who drive 2030 kilometres every day to go and fulfill Salah in other countries they don't have the facility make use of it while it is there. You know what is strange? What is strange is in those countries where they are banning hijab, the sisters are fighting to wear it. And in those countries where it is allowed, the sisters are fighting to remove it so panela
and not only about sisters, the same applies to the masjid. in those countries where there are no massages, they are fighting to try and get some massages. And in those countries where there are so many massages, they are not even going to the massage and look at the irony. We will be asked by Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah is going to question us that look, I gave you the chance the facility, what are you doing? Are you waiting for a day when it's you're going to be in a place where that's not going to be possible, then you're going to cry for the sake of it.
Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us I want to teach you another quick way of going to Jenna. After every Salah, read ayatul kursi once, after every Salah read ayatul kursi once and Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you genital photos. It is a hadith of Abu Omar Maha viola, one in Sudan and Maasai, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says whoever reads ayatul kursi after every form of Salah
there is nothing between him and entering Jenna except death. Did you hear how it's worded? whoever reads ayatul kursi after every farrat Salah there is nothing between him and paradise except death he just has to die. He will go to Gen metal for those inshallah Bismillah. Now when we say this, obviously we must clarify that when a person passes away sometimes on a blessed day say in Ramadan, say on a Friday, sometimes you have a message saying Oh, they passed away in Ramadan, they will go straight to Jenna, they passed away on a Friday they will go straight to gender, there is no guarantee like that. No, if you lead a good life, you will go to gentlemen, but if you committed
suicide in Ramadan, what's going to happen? Allah knows let him be the judge Subhan Allah, if you did something bad you died for example, you will not fasting you were drinking you are doing something bad and then you died in Ramadan. Perhaps Allah might have mercy on you but there is no guarantee that you will go to Jenna. Yes, it was a blessing death. We do not deny that someone who dies in Ramadan it's blessing but there is no guarantee my brothers and sisters because you need to try without the trial. It's not going to happen. This is why we say keep trying. And don't lose hope you fell once get up again. You fell on second time get up a third time and so on. May Allah
subhanho wa Taala. Grant us Janna
then something very important the hadith of Abdullah Abu Salam remember this hadith because it is absolutely beautiful. It's a hadith also Mustafa la where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he came to Madina, munawwara and I'm sure we may have heard this before, there was a Jewish rabbi. And he was later known as Abdullah Abu Salam of Allah and he says, I had read in my scriptures that there is a man going to come in this region and he will be a prophet and I knew some of his signs. So I saw some of the signs and when I heard that he arrived in Madina, munawwara I went quickly rushing to see you know, and everyone was talking to him and I he was saying something,
so I tiptoed to look at him when I saw his face. I knew this man is not a liar. This is not the face of a liar. It's amazing some handler and this shows us that when we lie, it shows on our face, when we are evil, it shows on the face if you're a good person inshallah it will show on your face but someone good will recognize a good person you know with us, sometimes we are so bad we cannot recognize a good person. We see someone fair in complexion we say Mashallah look at the neuron his face, but we don't realize what nor do you have to recognize the note.
Sometimes there is a person as dark as charcoal, but the newer is such that the people who have no will recognize Mashallah, this is a very pious person, he's a really good man. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us so that we are not deceived, and we don't deceive others. So the Hadith says, I heard Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says, Are you one of Shu salam, what are your mo Tom was? Our ham was Aloo Bella Ileana Sunni that Hulu Jana Tara B combi Salam O people spread the salam, first word. Look, it's it rhymes, isn't it? The words are rhyming. This was the first words that Abdullah hypno Salam heard, oh people. Hama Salatu. Salam said Oh, people spread the Salam. Salam means peace, so
spread peace, but primarily it is the greeting As salam aleikum. I What is the meaning of a Salaam Alaikum we say peace be upon you. If you look at what it actually means, it means I promise you I will not harm you.
That's what it means. Because if I say Peace be on you that means May there be no war on you right? May there be nothing harmful on you right? who is who is talking? I am talking. So I am the one who is telling you that I won't harm you. The problem was as we say Salaam Alaikum. And we are beating them Salam aleikum. We are cheating Salam aleikum, we are deceiving Salam aleikum. As soon as we go back we backbiting about them. That is where the problem lies. I promise you if you want to better the condition of your family, your broader family and your community and the oma learn to say only good things about people behind their backs. And I promise you Your life will change. life will
change. If you guarantee that you will only say good things about others behind their backs. Everything will change community will become a better place.
Because it is really it will work. The problem was us behind the backs we say bad in front, we have such a smile so Allah that hypocrisy will destroy us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us and may He make us from those who realize so the first one spread the Salaam, the second one up to mo Tama, which means feed the food, feed the food here to whom two types of people, those who may be wealthy and those who are poor as well your relatives in those who are not related. So sometimes you get your friends and you are gathering Mashallah you have food Alhamdulillah and inshallah, if you have cooked and prepared more, you may later on one to pack what is remaining, and give it to the poor.
That is an act of worship. And I'm so happy to see in so many countries, including in this country, where there are people now who are taking a keen interest in packing and distributing the good leftover food to give those who are less privileged. While law here it is an act of worship. If you eat one morsel, and there is another morsel remaining that you did not eat, do not throw it away. If it is good enough to eat, Please pack it and look for someone who needs it. Search for him, because that search will make your door to Jenna very simple. But if you are just to throw it in the bin, my brothers and sisters you'd rather cook less, you'd rather cook less or order less. May Allah
subhanho wa Taala make us from those who don't waste.
So to feed the food, learn to feed the poor as well. Learn to reach out to them, learn to donate, learn to give. That's what it is, when you give Allah will give you unfit Yagna de la spend, Oh son of Adam, and it shall be spent upon you. Allah will grant you sustenance. One of the ways of earning more money is to put money when you have a business, what do you need to do? You need to put capital then you will get profit, right? If you don't have the capital, how are you going to start your business. So you need to put in something then you will get out something. The same applies to the deeds you need to do something then you will get the result of it. So if you spend, it will be spent
on you Subhan Allah The same applies in the farm. You cannot just sit because you have a large tract of land and wait for the dates to grow. You didn't plant anything. How can you do that? You're foolish. Oh, I bought the dates farm. If you bought the dates farm you are going to be working very very hard to ensure that everything is in order. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us ease
then silyl our hammer actually means to maintain your family ties. Every extended family has to have some form of politics. Remember that it is impossible to have a big extended family without some misunderstanding Why? Because that is part of your test from Allah. Allah made you related in order to test you will you actually go out and resolve the matters or you don't want to solve the problem? If you have a family problem you have not spoken to your brother or your sister for five years. Tonight is the night pick up the phone forgive each other and continue Subhan Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us was Sunil our hammer from the mouth of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
your family members, that's your brother, that's your wife, your in laws, your family members, your children. Some parents don't talk to their own children, and they have a bad relationship. Some siblings they are fighting why we are muslimeen if you want your path to genda to be made easy solve your problem. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us to resolve our matters. And then the last part of that Hadith the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says, shall Lubin laylee when NASA Nia pray at night when the people are sleeping, call out to Allah with us. You know when we do that when we have a problem. This is why the Hadith says in Allah either a hubbub then if Allah when Allah loves
you, he tests you. Because when he puts a calamity and a problem in your in your life, suddenly you become pious because now you quit your sin because you know you have a disease that you you need cure for. And you suddenly go to the masjid for Salah. And you are therefore tahajud and you get up very late at night and you are crying to Allah because why the doctor told you you have four months to live so Allah imagine. So Wasn't that a gift for you? Wasn't that a very big gift that you had a big problem, financial problem, this problem that was a gift. Allah blessed you with a problem so that you come closer to Allah, that was the gift of Allah but you did not realize that may Allah
subhanho wa Taala make it easy. So if we are to pray at night while everyone is sleeping, then the Hadith says what my right hand has spent Subhan Allah, this is Allah subhanho wa Taala so my beloved brothers and sisters,
that is also a beautiful way of entering genital Pharaohs another way of entering gender, visiting the sick and the ill Yeah, that will marry
Imagine how many different ways they are to enter Jannah Do we have even one of them? Few of them?
If there was only one way, then I think we would have been at a loss. But there are 1000s of ways so that you know it reminds me of a huge highway with so many lanes and all of them are going to find yourself at least in one of those lanes. So what do you do? There is a beautiful Hadith Subhana Allah hadith of Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked the question to the Sahaba he said, who is fasting today?
So the Sahaba of the Allah, Ababa Casa de la Vela and who said, Anna? I.
Then he says, who has followed the janaza today
abubaker Casa de COVID la no said Anna. Hi Subhana Allah, the Sahaba were just looking. Then he says, who has fed a poor person today, Abu Bakr, Siddiq Avila Ando said, Allah Subhana Allah when he asked, Who has visited the Sikh person today, Baba Casa de la Anna says, Anna says I all of these things. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says and this is the hadith of Abu huraira in Sahih Muslim he says whoever has done all of these will get Jenna
Subhana Allah imagine visiting the sick why the Sikh they need a boost they need a moral boost Subhana Allah they need someone to at least say inshallah you will be okay don't worry, Mashallah we are with you. Sometimes they are tired, they are bored. But my brothers and sisters, you need to know how long to sit and you need to know whether to go or not. Sometimes a brother is in intensive care fighting for his life. You say no, he had gotten married sooner sooner. I'm going and you fight with the people at the hospital and you go there and you want to sit and take your tea and talk to him my brother relax, you need to know that I time some people are recuperating. Make dua for them,
wait for them to heal and come home after that. Maybe a phone call maybe a message see, they might not want to sit with you for so long. They need the rest. So to apply your mind and your brain to eat is very important. You need to know when to go how long to go. The Hadith also speaks of manzara Allahu Allah, whoever visits a brother for the sake of Allah not necessarily seek you visit one another. You know, the weekend comes and you decide okay, let's go to this person's house. Now I do know we've become materialistic sometimes. So we go and arrive at someone's house exactly at lunchtime.
Why did you do that?
Is that really and then you say no, you know, I was reading the ad. And we had to come to your house much my brother Don't lie to me here. You visited at the wrong time. Subhana Allah
phone today we have messages WhatsApp so on, are you at home? Can I come? They might have planned something they might want to go somewhere. They may not want you there Subhana Allah, they may have decided to go out. So now you visit the house and you enter the door. And then Salam aleikum. So he looks at you alaikum Salam? Yes. He doesn't even want to talk because he's waiting for you to go. You know, when I was young, we once visited someone's house with my mother. I was very young. And I will never forget this. And I've said it a few times. Some of you might have heard it.
On the door, there was a sticker. The sticker says we are very happy at your arrival. Did you hear that? Sounds nice, isn't it? We are very happy at your arrival. But we will be even happier when you depart.
Subhana Allah. When I explained to my mother, what was written there? She said, I never want to go back to this house again. And I told her No, it's just a joke. She says no, we cannot take a joke and we never went back there. So
we never went back there. Now the reality is sometimes the way we operate in our own homes, we make it difficult for someone to welcome us in the house don't overstep that hospitality the boundary, you need to know where to draw the line. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us that is so it's important to visit as well. Then there is a very easy way of entering Jenna but not very easy at the same time, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said in many different narrations, he speaks about how a person who is merciful upon the buyer when he is selling his goods and He is merciful upon the seller, when he is buying his goods will be given general fair dose. Someone wants
to buy you know what is your price, you are merciful on them for that inshallah you will get gentlemen, someone wants to sell you know that you have the money you won't squeeze them so much because you know, the man bought it at 40 Durham's, he wants to make a profit sell it at 50. Durham's, you want to squeeze him to give you a 30 day terms and you know that he's going to make a loss. Don't do that. Give him a little bit of a profit Bismillah you have the money and inshallah he will
benefit, he will make dua for you, and the do out of other people is more likely to be accepted for you than your own. Because a more powerful than yours is to add that someone makes for you without you knowing. SubhanAllah. So imagine when you help someone, and they made a profit in their business and the school, the children are happy and so on and so forth, they are eating, and he makes you out, Oh Allah, I do business with this man. Every time he does a good deed, Oh Allah, grant him gentlemen, give him Baraka in his business so that he can keep on doing business with me what to do? And you didn't even know that. This is amazing. My beloved brothers and sisters, this is why when it
comes to business deals, be merciful. Don't be selfish. Many people are taught to be selfish. How much are you going to amass a million a billion? What are you going to use? What are you going to spend some Han Allah, let's share it with others and you will earn genital for those by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Also, if a person owes you money, to give them time to pay to have mercy on them, it will have a direct effect on your ease of the Day of Judgment.
Did you know that if you can give someone time say they owe you money. Yes, if you are in a difficult situation and you need it, you you are allowed to squeeze them a little bit obviously, because they owe you the money. Sometimes there is a wealthy person, he just has a habit of not being in that particular case. It's dangerous, you can pursue it, it's your money. But we are talking of the needy people who sometimes have borrowed money and they are finding it difficult to pay back. You have a lot of money but you are squeezing them and squeezing them and they don't know they are stressed and depressed. They cannot concentrate in Salah they cannot do this cannot do that
what will happen as a result, their life becomes stressful, Allah will make your life stressful as well.
But if you make ease for them, Allah will create ease for you in the dunya as well as the akhira going all the way back to the hadith of Abu huraira. The Allah one Muslim where he says there was a man who was asked, What do you do? What did you do in the dunya?
In the AF era, he was asked what did you do in the dunya he says, You know, I just used to do a lot of borrowing. And I used to give so much of time to the people who used to owe me and I used to even forgive so Allah says Today we are forgiving you.
Today we are forgiving you as a result. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy. Like I said, there are so many other a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, another Hadith Sahih Muslim of de familia Monrovia LA and
then I move on to
the good deeds, if you are to look after your children in a proper way to give them an upbringing, especially your daughters, and you get them married off in the correct way that Allah and His Rasool have taught you. And you have been kind to them. Allah says as a result of that we give you Jenna, why? Why? Why daughters? Why not sons? The Hadith says whoever has three daughters looks after them, and gets them married to proper places was kind to them. We will give him gender. Why? Because you brought up someone and you spent money on them. You invested on them, preparing them for someone else. That's why did you hear that? It's not easy to give your daughter away. This is why if you
someone else's daughter and you are married, look after her. Subhan Allah, be careful how you treat her. She was someone else's daughter. They spent money on her. They brought her up, they loved her. They kissed her. They played with her. She grew up for 2025 30 years, then she got married to you Subhana Allah, you make sure you treat her correctly because her father brought her up for you. That's why he's getting gender. Now do you see why? Because it's not easy to give the children away. And this is why when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us about marriage.
He tells us that these children actually belong to Allah. You will get them married according to what Allah has asked you to do. Either a documentary on a de novo wahoo Luca who has a widow in law.
If a proposal comes to you, for your child, from someone who's Deen, meaning that the level of religion and level of character is satisfactory, then let them get married. If you don't let them get married, there will be great chaos and corruption on Earth. So remember my brothers and sisters today? If you ask me, I can tell you there are 1000s of cases of people who want to get married because of the social media and technology. They have gotten to know one another somehow, and there is nothing wrong with the man or the boy or the girl. But the father says no, what am I going to show
My family what is going to happen in my society? I can't do this. He comes from Africa. And this one comes from Russia. And that one comes from America. And this one comes from Europe and this one comes from South Africa and whatever. SubhanAllah my brothers and sisters, go back to the Hadith, either attack or mentor bernadina hula hula hoop as a widow. Some simple look at the level of character look at the level of Dean if the person is respectable responsible, let them get married. If not, you are not doing the right thing. How then do you want genital fair dose? May Allah subhanahu wa taala make it easy? Give the man a chance. Let him come let him talk. Let him see and
inshallah your door of Jelena will be open because you gave your daughter away according to Allah instruction, not according to your whims and fancies. That is why you will deserve Jenna but if you want to do it in your own way, then only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows.
My brothers and sisters, so many other beautiful deeds that I can make mention of one of them is to have mercy to have mercy on one another. Our homeowner Hama Hama Rahman, Al hamdu, Manville rvr, Hong Kong Memphis sama, those who have mercy upon one another, Allah will have mercy on them have mercy upon those on earth and the one in the heavens will definitely have mercy upon you. Remember that have mercy upon those on earth and Allah will have mercy upon you. So be merciful to people be kind, develop your character it's a beautiful month of Ramadan tonight we've come here to sit not just to say Mashallah I heard a good to change your life. My brothers and sisters, it's enough what
we are doing the bad and the evil. It's enough The world is struggling and suffering will lie here we are waiting for everyone so that the world can improve if there is a problem somewhere on the globe. Allah says in Allah Allah
be comin had
foreseen him, Allah will not change the plight of the oma or a nation until every individual does not change his or her self. So if you want to see an improvement across the globe, the beginning point is with myself. This is why we're here tonight. To encourage everyone. Please improve yourself for the sake of Allah for your own sake. Quit your bad ways, your bad habits, quit your haram relationships, quit that which is bogging you down. Go into the pleasure of Allah bear patience for the sake of Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant you genital Farah dos
Subhana Allah, the hadith of Abu huraira Allah and I will end in Sharla on this note, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked
which are the deeds that will most likely get a person entry into gender? Or the proper wording of the Hadith is actually the people of Jenna the entry that they grab were granted in genital field those what are the main deeds that made them get general? He said two things. You know what he said? The koala, he was not
the consciousness of Allah and good character, good character, Subhana Allah which means they fulfilled their duty unto Allah. And they fulfilled their duty unto the rest of the creatures of the same Allah. So Allah says, they will be granted genital for those, most of the people in general if you asked him, What made you come here? They will say taco Allah or husband, or both of those Subhana Allah. Did you hear that? And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was asked the question, What about jahannam? What will be the deeds that would have got people into Hellfire? If you were to ask them? Subhana Allah, that Why are you here? They would say one of two things alpha mu Alfaro, do
two things, the mouth or the private parts. May Allah forgive us, the mouth of the private part, which means Hellfire will be filled with people who abused their mouth and their private parts. Now this mouth abuse is more dangerous because it affects people watch out how you use your tongue, and I call on you and I plead with you. Let's improve the condition of our homes because if your home is strong, the community will be strong. Go back home and solve your problem. Say good words to your spouse. The Hadith speaks about how a person who passes away with their spouse being happy with them will enter Jenna. That's also there in the Hadith.
We usually talk about the wives but Subhan Allah that does not give a license to the husbands to be bad. I'm the man. Come on. That's not how you should be. The house is beautiful.
Lady the best from amongst you are those who are best to their wives.
I challenge you to ask yourself, Am I the best? Am I good to my wife to my family members go and improve
my brothers and sisters
It's important for us to know this, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has bestowed favor upon us. There are 1000s of ways of entering Gen metal for those and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says myog Malema bettinelli v one v of Mullah Hoon, Jana, whoever guarantees me the correct use of what lies between his cheeks and what lies between his thighs, which means the tongue and the private parts, I guarantee him genitals or dose.
Now, I know many people must be saying, you know, I made a mistake. I did this I committed the sin. I didn't use my tongue properly. What should I do now? I end off by saying turn to Allah. At Evo minute thembi Kamala de Bella, remember, a person who seeks the forgiveness of Allah is equivalent to the one who did not commit a sin at all. If you asked the last forgiveness, Allah wiped it out. Because that was our last plan. You know, when Allah created Adam, Allah is salatu salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala in his divine wisdom knew that he is going to commit a sin, He will seek forgiveness, then I will put him on earth so that his progeny when they commit a sin, they need to
know what to do. What should they do? They should seek forgiveness then I will give them Jenna again.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all and May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all genital for those. Indeed it was a beautiful evening here in Dubai. I asked a lot to accept it from every one of us. Please remember me also in your prayers Apollo kolyada was Allah Allahu wa salam ala nabina Muhammad Subhana Allah Allah Subhana, Allah homopolymeric to Allah, Allah, Allah and hirokawa to wake
