The Friday sermon delivered by Sheikh Muiz Bukhary on the 23rd of October 2020 at the Jawatte Jumuah Masjid in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Manny Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa Sallim wa ala shut off in a beer. mousseline. Maybe you know Habib in our karate ioannina Mohammed Ebony Abdullah, Allahu Allah, Allah He was happy. He saw that you were done with this Lima back for the fall along with
that are going to be led him in a ship on a big. Yeah, you held it in a monastery. The slavery was
in Allahabad Saudi.
We begin by praising Allah subhana wa Tada. We ask him for his help. We asked him to open doors of prosperity for all of us. We asked him for cure. We asked him for healing. We asked him for safety. We asked him for security, and we asked him to send his choices of blessings and salutations upon the beloved messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions and all those who preyed upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of
my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. In an authentic hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam once passed by a grave, and I am narrating the Hadith, this incident in my own words and paraphrasing. The narration goes along the lines of these words. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he passes by a grave.
And he sees a lady, a lady by the grave, she's beeping, she said, She's sobbing, she's in grief. The profits are alone while he was in them, he looks at her. And he tells her, be conscious of Allah, and hold on to patience, be conscious of Allah, his spirit, it was very be conscious of Allah and hold on to patience. This lady, she looks at the prophets and allamani when he was sending them, and she did not recognize the messenger, she more or less tells the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to let her be. Leave me alone. Leave me alone.
In other words, go away and leave me alone. So the prophets of Allah Almighty when he would send them in, she retorted, as such when she said that the prophet Elijah moved on. And there were others who are observing this, they quickly run up to her and tell her that was the Messenger of Allah sallallahu.
Now, she's disturbed, she's perturbed.
She now runs, looking for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and perhaps the Prophet was a domestic. Perhaps the Prophet was at home, she arrives, she finds the Prophet, she goes to him, and now she excuses herself. She apologizes. She says, Yeah, I did not know it was you. Forgive me, please excuse me. And at that junction, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam artizan statement. He tells in NEMA sobre in the southern Mati Buddha, he looks at her and she says, because now she's willing to take the advice of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. She said, you know, the law, forgive me, excuse me, I'm going to hold on to patience because it's the Prophet advising her right? So then
the Prophet looked at her and he said, that indeed patience is at the beginning of the trial. It is at the holding on to patients is at the beginning of the trial. So from this Heidi, what we learn, what we understand, is that
this life, as Allah says,
Allah, Allah, Allah azza wa jal hyah. Interestingly, firstly, depth is mentioned. It is Allah who created death and life, not life and death, again, to get our priorities straight. Don't get misled by this one, the life death, death is inevitable. So it is he who created death and life for what purpose, Leah
to test you all. So a test is not going to be rosy. A test is not going to be rosy. And this life is filled with trials, tests and challenges. Now a lot of us are disheartened because of the difficulty that we are in because of the turbulence that we are in. Oh, no, not again. Oh, no, not again. We really can't take it anymore. We can't take the economic crunch. We can't take the fact that you know we'd have to stay at home Hawaii all over again. Why? Why another cluster? Why a certain way? Why this? Why that? And we want to question every single thing.
I do brothers in Islam. This is part and parcel of the plan of loss
has been a law or an ambiguity in nanomolar. When
and what does the beautiful teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah teach us at this point.
Hold on to patience. A sub A sub patience is of three types at least number one, a sub Anil Mohamad,
to hold on to patience and stay away from that which Allah has made Haram. Yes, that particular transaction looks seemingly lucrative, seemingly, there's a lot of incentive for you to go ahead with a transaction, it's very attractive, the way they are pitched, it is very attractive, you feel like you want to go ahead with that transaction. It's a lucrative job offer. It's a lucrative transaction. There's so much of ambiguity. But when you look at the transaction, you're putting in this little money from this side, and on the other side, you're getting so much more in return. Even you don't understand the transaction, it's so ambiguous. All you know is you're putting 10 rupees on
this side. On the other side, you're getting hundreds and 1000s. So it seems very attractive.
But what does Allah say? Allah has made certain things cut off.
So now you need patience to turn down that job offer. When you know that you're going to be involved in haraam, directly or indirectly. It takes a lot of courage.
Because now everything is so bad that you know what
it's almost like you know, when you take the metaphor of drowning at sea, any piece of driftwood that floats away, you want to grab at it. So right now anything that comes my way in order to talk about Allah haram after the pandemic, but right now whatever comes my way, let me just grab it. It's a test to see whether at this juncture you're holding on to patients and to stay away from that which is how long to stay away from that which is hard on for the youngsters, let's say the opposite gender, if you're talking in the context of Xena, just the youngsters, even for the older young girls also you have the context of Xena let's say there is an attractive lady in front of you the
attractive opposite gender in front of you. And the setting is perfect. No one knows no one can see everything is hidden hush hush you can get away with it. But now as you hold on to patients to stay away from that which is haram to stay away from that which is haram for the foodies out there is this tasty delicious dish in front of you. And you're so hungry and you want to taste it but then you think is it allows us
to stay away from that. And as you can see it goes into every aspect of our lives.
And then you have a southern island Allah
patience when it comes to performing your obligations.
With regards to your spa with regards to your fasting with regards to with regards to height
you need patience to fulfill the commandments of Allah subhana wa tada let's say waking up for budget waking up at the hygiene class in the month of Ramadan giving out Zakat from your heart and wealth from your money giving sadaqa reading the Quran you need patience to fulfill the commandments of Allah. The last one because about to conclude a sobre la masa.
Patients when it comes to trials, difficulties and challenges. My dear brothers in Islam today this tomorrow it will be another thing
but the believers attitude should not change. So hold on to patients. Hold on to patience and you're being rewarded every step of the way. Beautiful every step of the way of being rewarded so much the accent the professor Addison tells us even a thorn creaking a believer, even a thorn.
I mean, compare that to the inconvenience that you are in right now. Or let's say if it's a terminal illness or terminal sickness, Allah forbid, there's a lot of a lot of pain, a lot of difficulty, even atone you're being rewarded. So every step of the way, you're being rewarded. As long as you hold on to patients you're not going to be removed in the Masada in the southern mokopuna as a professor, I listen to that lady. At the very beginning you have to hold on to patience. You can't grumble you can't complain you can't wait to walk now there are many of us waging war we've got
Oh, I hate God, I hate life. Why is life so unfair? Why is God doing this to me? Why is God doing this to us? I don't believe in God. Allah forbid. These are statements blasphemous ones that should not come out from our mouths. La la la
la escuela Allah, Allah is enough for us. There is no power, no mic except for Mama. So my dear brothers in Islam as we conclude, let us remind ourselves, to hold on to patients to work on our fate and to constantly keep turning to align to today's a Friday. Don't forget what a special and powerful day this is. And please don't forget that it is the Java the hour during the show.
answered by Allah subhanho Medina and as per the opinions of most of the scholars, it is one hour before my trip approximately one hour before my with the last hour of the day of Friday sees that our to make dua there's so much for us to make of ourselves, our families, for our community for our country for our fellow citizens. Make the MiG tau alpha safety MC two alpha security MC two alpha good health, wealth, prosperity, mega alpha, a man for faith, for steadfastness, for truthfulness, positivity make dynamic. Don't just make life a materialistic things make up for the things that are really important. And don't forget to send excessive lessons and salutations upon Muhammad
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's a Friday to send blessings and salutations. I presume most of you might have read. So I have to try and do the other deeds as well allocate a
chunk of charity that you give out on Friday, these are deeds.
Buddy brothers in Islam, you will reap the rewards. I mean, you might in a way undermine them, but they are powerful deeds, powerful deeds. Just imagine from a worldly perspective, if some financial institution, some financial institution,
okay, if they were to tell you every Friday, at a certain hour
5pm if you deposit 1000 rupees, we will do something something.
And by next week or after a period of time, you're going to get it 10 times multiply 100 times multiply
you and I and what we do to make it for that 5pm we would set reminder for the reminder to ensure that we deposited that money that 1000 rupees at 5pm. Why? Because it's a birthday incentive. We can see Oh, they're going to give us this much this much this much. But here you have
and most of the time when they give these crazy because you know what happens? You can kiss your money, goodbye.
But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would he lie? would he lie? Would Allah Subhana
Allah Tina, who is more truthful than Allah, Allah and His Messenger, they're promising What a powerful day this is that you're seated in. What a powerful our socket is to Java is how many rewards you stand to accrue by sending blessings and salutations upon the profit. If you want ease in your life simplicity, this annotations upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
We want prosperity if you want all of the good things that you want, send blessings and salutations upon him make the get closer to Allah Subhana Allah Allah, that is more long lasting Mario Brothers in Islam shaytan the devil will come and try to you know, misguide you, but don't fall prey to his traps. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us from the traps of Shabbat.
So as we conclude, we pray that Allah Subhana Allah Allah forgives us of our sins, we pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala takes us back to normalcy soon. We pray that Allah subhana wa Taala opens the doors of the masajid completely once again, we pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala invites us back to his house in Makkah on aroma and on hydrojetting deprived My dear brothers in Islam should make our hearts break. We pray that Allah invites us back to his house again. I mean, we pray that Allah subhana wa Taala blesses our country, we pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses the economy of our country, we pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala
helps those who are in positions of power to guide the community to guide the citizens towards that which is right and that which is good. We pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala keeps us united. We pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala cleanses our hearts of all toxic elements towards one another. We pray that Allah subhanaw taala cleanses our country of racism of bigotry or hatred of negativity, may Allah fill all of our hearts
with goodness with kindness with love and caring towards one another. And just as how he united us here at this Masjid for Juma on this Friday, May Allah subhanho wa Taala unite us in the beautiful gardens of gender in the company of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I mean I mean last
