I commenced by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala I asked him the almighty the Lord of all words the exalted to shower his choices of blessings and salutations. upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path, with a with utmost sincerity until the day of
media respected elders and brothers in Islam. First and foremost, I remind myself, I enjoined upon myself and then all of you all present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to be conscious of your makeup during every single second of your lives, if you wish to attain success in this world, as well as the hereafter. maleness of Hannah Montana, make us all from the people of taqwa and make me make us from the victorious and successful ones. I mean,
the topic for today's is going to be in the name of Allah.
In the Name of Allah, the first idea that came down the first commandment that came down from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And also the one he said a long while he really was lm was a pull up this mirror because he read in the name of your Lord, the Quran Bismillah be calory holla read in the name of the one who created Panama.
So, there are many ayah in the Quran, that talks about remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala remembering the name of Allah azza wa jal and bringing this remembrance into our lives. Allah says in the Quran, yeah, are you hella Veena Am I new the guru la de Coyne Cafiero was said, Behold, I see them or you will have brought in a man whose Kuru Lucha de con Cafiero. remember Allah excessively make the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala excessive in your lives. So if we wish to attain success, if we wish to attain a good life, in this world as well as the next it is upon us to bring in this remembrance in our lives, is a beautiful Hadith. And authentic hadith that has been
recorded in the book of mama did marry him a whole lot in Miami but imagine and other books as well.
And the narration goes along the lines of these words, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he once asked his companions, a lot when you can be fading, should I not inform you all of the best of deeds. You see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was sent as Bashir on whenever Iran bashira and Iran, he was sent as an individual as a person bringing glad tidings and one as well to warn us about the anger of Allah to warn us about the punishments of Allah. And this is the balance that the Quran strikes throughout. It's not just only all about love, care and mercy in the Quran, but you also have where Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us about his anger about his punishment and
this balance is of utmost importance. Some of us we feel uncomfortable or we say that Oh, why does the Friday Sermon always have to commence with the preacher saying, fear of loss? Fear God, fear your Lord? Why do we have to fear Allah? I mean, shouldn't it be love Allah? Should it be love your God? But you see my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, the beauty is that Allah our maker, he knows he's the one who created us he knows us best. He knows what kind of a balance needs to be struck. To illustrate vanilla Hill method will add allies above all these examples but for our weak minds to fathom and comprehend, think about a mother, a mother who brings up a
Now obviously, mothers love their children so much. We know that all of our mothers love us so much pantyliners as far as we do love our children, but think of a mother who brings up a child with only love care and mercy, where she loves her child so much. She doesn't she does not rebuke him for anything. She does not reprimand him or her for anything. Perhaps this child is hanging out with the wrong company, but the mother tells herself or tell the child You know what, I love you so I'm not going to tell you anything. I'm not going to warn you against it. I'm not going to correct you. The child is indulging in a bad habit, perhaps addictive behavior SubhanAllah. Maybe their mother
witnesses the child indulging in pornography or consuming drugs, what not bad habits? And the mother thinks to herself? No, no, no, I love my child. I should not tell him anything. This is this is how I show my love to my child. Do you think what this mother is doing is wise?
No, she is leading her child into rumination.
She needs to correct her child. It can be done lovingly, but the child needs to be warned, certain disciplinary measures need to be brought in.
That's the only way at that point, perhaps the child might feel it to be unfair. Or perhaps the child might feel that, you know, my mom is being strict with me and my father is being strict with me. But at the end of the day, it's good. It's for the good of the child. It's for the greater good. So likewise, Allah Subhana. Allah knows mankind. If only pleasures are put forward, if only rewards are kept as the incentive, that's not going to be enough. That's not going to be enough. man needs to know that if he were to anger Allah, if you were to trespass and transgress the limits set by Allah, then repercussions have to be met, you will have to face consequences. May Allah subhanho wa
Taala save us on. Nonetheless, coming back to the narration the prophets Allah listened and looks at the companions and says, should I not inform you all of the best of deeds, a deed that is better than spending gold and silver, a deed that is better than defending the lands of Islam fighting the enemies of Islam
and the prophets of Allah. then goes on to inform the Sahaba because they very eagerly asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tell us the Rasul Allah tell us, and in that particular narration, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam Allah in the sense of Prophet sallallahu Sallam he mentions a deed that you can do
whilst walking whilst sitting whilst reclining, you can do it with a face in the table or not. You can do it with Budo or without Budo. You can do it wherever you and you basically do it when entering your home and exiting your home. When entering the toilet when leaving the toilet, you do it just before you go to sleep, you do it when as you wake up, you do it in the morning, you do it in the evening, you do it in Salah, you do it outside of Sora and that is nothing other than remembering Allah subhanho.
Victrola Subhana Allah, this vehicle. We have very narrow minded understandings in regards to Vicar and the benefits of Vickers upon Allah. liqueur is not just to sit in a corner and keep repeating a form of remembrance. No, it is upon us to ponder it is upon us to contemplate the greatness of Allah. As you read the Quran, you remember Allah and this reminder is necessary as as believers, Allah says, with a cure for inadequate and meaning remind for remind this prophet, the believers, why do you think you come every Friday for a Friday sermon, we need that spiritual boost, we need to be reminded, I need to be reminded you all need to be reminded we need to keep reminding ourselves,
lest we drift away May Allah save us all. So this is necessary this constant remembrance
and in terms of the benefits, they are colossal Subhanallah so many benefits in regards to thicker, so many. You are going to be blessed like I said earlier with a good life in this world, as well as the next in the Hadith where the prophets Elias and talks about the Night Journey. He says he meets Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam and Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam
tells the Prophet sallallahu Sallam inform your people inform your own mind that the lens of Jenna along the lines of these words, the lens of gender are fertile.
They are fertile in a sense when you have a land that's fertile. Whatever you sow in that land, you're going to get a good harvest the lands of gender are fertile but
They are empty. They're empty, not barren. If you have a barren land, nothing is going to grow on it. The land is fertile, but it is empty.
The planting needs to be done here. Every Subhan Allah that you say every Alhamdulillah that you say every Allahu Akbar that you say trees are being planted for you in Jenna. orchards are being readied for you in Jenna palaces are being built for you in Jenna Subhana Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all from the people of gender. I mean,
when you go to gender, we're all going to be in general.
In general, the only size of regret of the genders of gender because we won't have any other worry, we won't have any other sadness nothing. The only size of regret the only size you know are the only size of sadness that the dwellers of general will have. will be Oh, I should have said one more.
I should have said one more Allahu Akbar. I should have said one more Al Hamdulillah I should have read two more I can I should have read one more is Allah because for reading the Quran. Every letter you get in rewards as per the words of the prophets a nihilist. I mean that he went on to say Alif Lam meme is not one letter. But rather Elif is one lamb is one meme is one. So if you were to read, and if
me 30 votes, mind blowing.
Just imagine if someone goes to tell you in place of the rewards that you're getting in general, if you read one letter of the Koran 10 Durham's is going to be put into your bank account, Panama, everybody will be reading the Quran, why 10 billion. That's a lot of money
for one letter, so let me 30 day terms,
teaching teaching you you will do it.
But the incentive is engender for you. And here you can earn you can spend and you can get that money back again, you follow rules. But in general, no sooner you enter the gates agenda. No sooner you pass away. There's no way for you to get more good deeds, in a sense, apart from the ones that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has mentioned, like sort of Algeria and all of that. But once you enter gender, there's no way for you to get good deeds. After you go to gender. That's it. So in terms of gender up we have the Hadith of the Prophet Isaiah tells us that gender is of 100 levels of Hanauma, the highest of it is genital for those May Allah grant us all entry into Jonathas. I mean,
so let's say you are in level number 50, you're going to be sad, there's going to be regret, oh, if I had done a little more, I could have made it to 5152 53 each level, there's always a possibility that you could have gone higher. But this is the chance to do that. This is where you need to plant and harvest. So no doubt by doing this great deed you're going to secure massive rewards in general. And on top of that, you're going to be blessed with a good life here as well. Allah is going to ease things for you. Allah is going to ease things, you may have to go through problems, you may have to go through challenges, you may have to go through difficulties that is part and parcel of life. But
yet Allah will ease things for you and make a way out for you. Panama, you see, during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
his beloved daughter,
She's married to Eileen, for the Allahu, and
now what happens is she's involved in a lot of housework, okay, and she's only 18 years old. She's a young girl involved in a lot of household chores. And unlike the women of today, unlike our women today, the women of the past had to put in a lot of hard work.
Today, if you want to buy bread, you go to the bakery and you buy bread. So, but in the past, you had to literally make the bread at home. You had to knead the dough, you had to put it into the makeshift hour and you have to take it out and make bread. If you wanted to grind something you had to take, you know the old crude methods of grinding things with heavy rocks and stones. Today you put it into a modern high tech blend or grind or whatever it is and it comes out the other side of analog grinded fine, but in the past it was very difficult. Today when you want water, you just open the faucet and you get water. In the past they had to carry pictures they had to carry jugs and make
their way towards wells that were located far away. fill those jugs and pictures and bring them back home. So the work was obviously very intense, and she's finding it very hard to cope with the household work.
At the same time, you know, when this was happening, a smile of the alarm line and if I'm not mistaken the sister of eyeshadow, the alarm line, our mother, I showed the loved one how she used to be involved the same kind of work. And one day she was returning back after fetching water from a well, she had the junk with a pitcher by her side and she was finding it very difficult. She's crossing the desert. We have the hot desert sun blazing on top of her, and she's making her way home. The profits of nihilism is returning back after a journey and he spots her. He feels sorry for her. He feels sorry for her and he offers her a ride. But she at that point, politely declines
because she's shy and she's modest. And and in that narration, she mentioned she remembers the the way, the possessive jealousy of her husband's obey of your loved one. Anyway, point being she goes back home and later on what happens is her father Abubakar, viola one, he gets a servant for her and then she says no sooner my father got me a servant. It was as if I was freed. It was like I was a slave and I was freed the maid I got a servant because I was freed from all my household shows. So now first of all, your loved one hi is in a similar situation. So there is a discussion at home between her and the other one and she decides to go to her father to supervise that along while he
was lm and ask for some help, ie, you know a maid to help her out with her work.
So what does she do? She goes to the house of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam. she knocks the door requesting to meet her father only to find out that her father had gone out who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had gone out. I shadowed the loved one who was present. She puts forth her needs to eyeshadow the last one her and tells Ayesha the loved one how to convey to her father and she returns back home. The prophets Allison and returns home in the evening I shadow the alarm. One had mentioned what family model the loved one had told her and no sooner she does this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam gets up and he goes to the house of his beloved daughter Fatima
at about one half.
He goes to their house, family a loved one and I do the love wine in his house. He knocks the dough, he goes inside and he sits between them on the bed. And he asks her The reason as to why she came to visit him early in the morning. And she tells him you're sort of line finding, or my beloved father, I'm finding it so difficult. With the household chores coping up with the household chores, it would be so helpful, if you could, you know provide me with a maid servant to help me out. So like salaries and they say Should I not inform you of something that is way better than a server then some help. They're waiting for the response on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he says, say
subhana wa 33 times say Alhamdulillah 33 times say Allahu Akbar 34 times.
Earlier the last one who says from that day onwards, we never ever missed what the prophet sallallahu Sallam instruct instructed us to do. And scholars who comment in regard to this hadith they state that they were given strength, they were given power, they were given ability to look after their own shows. And this is why we have scholars of the past who right after they would go sit by themselves and indulge themselves in Vicar remembering Allah as carosa barrhaven Masada morning evening after they would remember Allah.
And they would say that if we were to miss this, it is almost like we have missed our breakfast. Our breakfast consists of cereal and Michelle, you want your sausages and your omelets and eggs and whatnot.
The people of the past the pious people of the past the liquid of Allah was their breakfast.
The reporter said if we don't have it, we will feel zapped the entire day. We will feel weak, lethargic the entire day and supanova that's the other benefit. by constantly being in the remembrance of Allah you protect yourself from the attacks of the devil of the enemy.
Shabbat is our sworn enemy and he's looking out to keep pushing us into pits. SubhanAllah this this war began
from the time of our father Adam eiling. So that was set up and it will go on until the day of the AMA.
So if you want to save yourself from the traps of the enemy, if you want to Don a spiritual armor,
you have to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala you have to constantly be in the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal you have to read and Carlos kobashi will Messiah you have to enter your house remembering the name of a lot mentioning the name of Allah. You leave mentioning the name of a lot you eat mentioning the name of Allah you sleep mentioning the name of a lot you wake up mentioning the name of
A lot and then think to yourself each time you're constantly mentioning the greatest of names Allah the name of Allah. So do you think any Devon any jinn any human being, any creation for that matter can harm you when you constantly keep remembering the creator? No Nothing will be able to have you.
Therefore constantly remember Allah Subhana Allah, may Allah azza wa jal make us of those who constantly remember Him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala moisten our tongues when we constantly remember Allah subhanho wa Taala many moisten our tongues with the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal akuto Kohli had a stuffed robot and he decided it was the minimalism festival in La Jolla don't carry mmamoloko for him.
hamdulillah hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa Sallim wa ala even mousseline be you know, Habib in our karate Amina Mohammed Abdullah la vida and he was happy with this Lima back, beautiful la vida de la la vista mc kumin Islami the robot in wiscon. called Long Island Victorville, Kareem. Yeah, you Hello Dean Armando de la kulu. Colin said either you slip like Omar mela como fidlock unova menyukai la hora Sula, muhfucka d'affaires fosun ld.
So I was mentioning in the first part of the hotbar to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala constantly. You see the effects of the devil you have to understand shaitaan is not someone that you should take lightly. He is an individual who has been present
before our father admire his salat wa salam because obviously he existed before that Allah created him before other Marlene salat wa salam, he still exists, and he will exist until the day of Dharma and then he will be destroyed Yes, because he made a door out of beyond the Nila Yoruba iPhone, Allah grant me time and to the day of the AMA and Allah subhanho wa Taala granted that the alpha in the community mumbler in you have you are from those who have been granted respect. Instead of seeking the forgiveness of Allah instead of economic, acknowledging his mistake, he goes on to challenge a lot. He goes on to say that he will mislead as many from the children of Adam as
possible. Somehow he went on and on in his arrogance.
So he is an individual who has been there for so long, so don't take him lightly. He studies you and don't think that his straps are one size fits all. No he tailor make straps for each and every one of us according to the professor land Islam, he measured them. He runs in our blood shaitaan runs in your blood and he studies you He knows your weaknesses. He knows what buttons he needs to push
to to push you into a pit May Allah save us.
Constantly remembering Allah you save yourself from all of this there are many a hadith Subhan Allah is one particular Hadith authentic hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his report proves that when an individual enters his house along the lines of these words when an individual enters his house,
if he remembers Allah shiping cries out today we don't have any lodging in this house. He cries out to his minions he cries out to his progeny, he cries out to his tribe. Today we don't have any lodging in this person's house. When that person goes inside and starts to eat the food if he says Bismillah and he starts eating with his right hand shape and cries out today we don't have any food in so and so's house. But on the other hand, if the individual enters his house without mentioning the name of Allah shaitaan announces today we have free lodging in so and so's house. Do you want to make your house a motel or hotel for the devils to handle for him to come and crash in your house
and chill in your house?
And then when eating if you don't mention the name of Allah He cries out today we have free food everybody can indulge in so and so's food.
Now we might take this lively but remember the professor Elisa Lam
one ninja how're Marbella? Sahaba Kuma wah wah wah ma young Deacon in our in our in our new ha he does not speak out of his own desires in regards to the deen of Allah what he says is divine revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala so he's telling us that the devil comes in if you don't mention the name of Allah, sometimes you're wondering what's happening at home. Why is there so much of toxicity in my house? Why am I constantly arguing with my wife? Why are my children not listening to me? Why is there are no Baraka in my house. Why am I facing problem after problem it your brother? Don't you understand? Don't you realize your housing the devil inside your house? A toxic
Allah what what else can you expect? angels are not going to be coming into your house. Angels are beings of light pure beings you want now you see this gathering is shrouded that's why whenever you enter a Masjid, you feel this sense of peace. Why? Because there's constant Sakina descending upon us tranquility coming from Allah, there are angels who shroud us. You want your houses to be like that. Therefore your house you need to remember Allah you need to read the Koran. If not, what happens is it becomes like a graveyard. And graveyards attract the jinn graveyard attracts the devil basically. So the devil comes and houses himself in your house he eats from your food, he loves it
at your house, you're going to be affected by the negativity of the devil.
And we as human beings we are affected by positive vibes as well as negative vibes, you know the vibrations and that's why the avocado soba hiromasa offer us a spiritual protection you don't the arm in the morning you read the escar evening you read the healthcare and you go out the devil's arrows cannot penetrate through your arm. negative things around you will not affect you because you are filled with positivity. You are emitting positive vibrations, the people around you are also affected in a positive way by your positive vibrations.
In the night when you go to sleep, you know that the devil ties three knots on you.
When you make will do when you remember Allah when you pray all those nuts not undone. But if you don't do any of that you wake up late logic. And there are people who ask one another Did you get out of the wrong side of the bed? Because you look so grumpy in Islam we don't have the right sir on the wrong side of the bed.
You're woken up with the effects of the devil and that's why you're so negative and so toxic. But if you remember, if you remember why and wake up the correct way, you're going to wake up positive, you're going to wake up light hearted, you're going to wake up filled with illumination, and you're going to be able to look ahead of you with clarity with with focus. You're not going to be like a bobbing thing in the ocean with no prep with with no focus, with no priorities with no goals in life knows panela
so therefore my dear, respected elders and brothers in Islam.
constantly remember Allah subhanho wa Taala seek refuge in Allah from the accussed David. Don't forget to read the adkar as you go through the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you will find various types of Asgard that have been authentically reported to us by the prophet sallallahu Sallam such as Bismillah Hilary lyoto Thomas Michigan Phil audible officer Matthew was similarly in our only Kelly Mattila. hidin my dementia Reema holla, I could see the grand isn't the most powerful ayah in the Quran. There are many as God given to us by the prophet sallallahu Sallam and when we read it, we reap its benefits and rewards in this world, as well as the hereafter. May Allah
subhanho wa Taala make us of those who strive hard to acquire authentic knowledge of the deen and act upon the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam may He forgive us of our sins? May he accept our good deeds, and just as how he is united us here in this beautiful center may unite us in the gardens of gentlemen, with our beloved Prophet Mohammed said a long way that you very seldom and may He bless us all to drink from his blessed hands at the fountain and mean, and given that today's a Friday, it is the best day of the week as per the prophets of Allah as per the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, therefore we should strive to send excessive blessings and
salutations upon Mohammed Salah Manuel earlier so
as our makers would handle what Allah in the Quran, he states that he did it first and then the angels and then he informs he commands the believers at large to send blessings and salutations upon Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam as per the A in the lotto melodica who you saw Luna Island Navy.
