In Al Hamdulillah nationals who want to start you know who want to start from when I was a biller Himanshu reenforcing our women say, t.

Well I shared one La Ilaha illa Allah who the who will actually Keller Why should you and Mohammed bin Abdullah who was Zulu sallallahu alayhi wa, early he was her the woman sir Arlen G will Mr. Nabi Suniti he laomi DD buried for Tapachula au Allah

00:07:08--> 00:07:45

Brothers and sisters. First and foremost, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to shower his acceptance and forgiveness on each and every one of us here today. And furthermore, we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala forgive us of our shortcomings and our mistakes Allahumma me and you will abide by our brothers and sisters around the world that are struggling in their own way. May Allah subhanahu wa taala give them ease patience and strength Allah whom I mean, brothers and sisters, we are about a month away from welcoming our students back home.

00:07:46--> 00:08:11

For many of us, high school students, middle students, college, university, it's all about to end very soon. And you're going to probably hear a lot of reminders about how to keep young people engaged throughout the summer, things that you should keep in mind and more or less reminders even for the students themselves, to keep them inspired, to keep them strong and focused and so on and so forth with respect to Islam.

00:08:13--> 00:09:05

Before all of that happens in sha Allah Huhtala there are three things I want to share with you. That I think is important for us as Muslims, to be an example of, especially to our students, they need to see always and forever these three things in each and every one of us whether you are a parent or not. As long as you are a member of this ummah, young people in particular should always see certain qualities or examples within this omit especially from the elders from the mature adults and those of us who have pretty much put that point of our lives behind us. Number one,

00:09:07--> 00:09:12

I cannot say it enough, a HELOC. a HELOC, a HELOC

00:09:13--> 00:09:59

etiquettes and mannerisms. Some of our scholars tell us that a HELOC is so important that it is the thing that protects you and keeps you in a safe place. When you're confronted with a situation or thing and you don't have knowledge on how to deal with that. If someone confronts you, or if you're in a scenario or a predicament, and you're not exactly sure what do I say do I argue back? Do I defend myself? Do I meet them at their level? Do I stay quiet? Do I say nothing Am I using Should I just be patient should I should I take it all what exactly should

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

I do. And they will say that when you don't have that knowledge, and you don't know what the next step is, a HELOC always saves you how?

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

Because part of etiquettes is just when you don't know what do what are we taught in Islam to do when you don't have knowledge, when you have nothing good to say, what are we taught, simply remain silent. You know, there was a

00:10:24--> 00:10:38

great, very famous Tabea by the name of robia Ibnu, who theme Rahimullah he was one of the close companions and students have ignoramus eroded over the Allah one woman.

00:10:40--> 00:11:00

Even though Hussein was known for a particular quality, so this is the next part of this whole massive topic of a club. I'm not going to say to you, well, here's a list of a lot, make sure you know them and make sure you practice them and make sure that everybody sees and appreciates it except your kids. No, I just want to share with you this one story.

00:11:01--> 00:11:08

If you know Hussein or Hema hula was known to have a particular quality about him.

00:11:09--> 00:11:20

He was known to lower his gaze, such to the point that the people in his city and community thought this man was blind.

00:11:21--> 00:12:00

Such to the point, the story is narrated that if he ever were to visit any of his friends or families, when he came to their door, they would announce, oh, the blind one is here. Because he had this discipline in him, that he would constantly monitor what was around, he was constantly aware what was around. And if he felt uncomfortable, his eyes was to the floor, or he was into something else, or he was reading or his eyes was simply focused on something else, whatever that may be. Why am I telling you this?

00:12:01--> 00:12:09

Here is the point about a club that young people have to see in us, I get it, they may not see everything.

00:12:10--> 00:12:13

They may not see how hard mom works,

00:12:15--> 00:12:52

how tirelessly she works, to make sure that everything in his or her life or in the children's lives are okay, that she's there to give them all the attention that they need. They may not see all of them, they may not see and understand. They may not even know what exactly does dad do when he goes to work? What's his actual skill? What duties does he perform? How does he take care of us? How does he pay for things? They may not see all of that. So what don't really teach us is they say that stories like this whenever you read a story of a particular individual, and there's a quality in them that's highlighted.

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

Find that quality in you.

00:12:58--> 00:13:01

What's the one etiquette?

00:13:02--> 00:13:08

What is the one manner in you and me that stands out?

00:13:09--> 00:14:02

That's what young people should see in us when they see you. And they see me. But they don't know what me or you what we do in our homes and in our private lives to work so hard to hold on to this Dean. But you know what they do? See, man, every time I talk to him, it doesn't matter what day or time of the night. He's so kind. She's so willing, she's always there to help I see that quality in them. That's how the engine of etiquettes and mannerisms begin. It starts with one and then the rest continue. Which leads us to the second point. So this is with respect to a flock, parents and brothers and sisters, young people need to see in all of us, especially that one quality in you and

00:14:02--> 00:14:11

me that stands out that stands out from above the rest. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for all of us and our sons and daughters Allahumma me number two,

00:14:13--> 00:14:17

number two, the killer, the killer, the killer.

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

The remembrance of Allah.

00:14:22--> 00:15:00

This subject is very unusual, why the kid is one of those topics where it has like this high moments and points in our lives. So it can have like these high points during the year where we experience and feel and we interact with vicar moreso than others. So you have like these different seasons of the year, the first 10 days of the hijra, then you have hatch season. Then we have Ramadan, then we have Joomla then we have solid the massage and you have these moments where it ignites and sparks this relationship of vicar then it has these mom

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

Once word literally dies and it's, it's gone.

00:15:04--> 00:15:13

We're busy with just life. And if you don't do that with the right intentions, the kid is literally gone and it disappears.

00:15:14--> 00:15:25

So listen to how the dilemma teach us. And I'll explain to you in sha Allah Huhtala why this is important for young people to see, especially in you and I the example.

00:15:26--> 00:15:39

I want to bring your attention to an incident that our Prophet alayhi salatu salam told us about that Musa alayhis salam asked Allah, Oh Allah, teach me a DUA

00:15:40--> 00:15:48

and Allah subhanho wa Taala responds and says to Musa alayhis salam, c'est la ilaha illAllah.

00:15:50--> 00:15:53

Now, if you were Musa alayhis salam,

00:15:54--> 00:15:55

and you heard that

00:15:57--> 00:16:16

the Redeemer they say that Musa alayhis salam asked this question, because he wanted a dua that was unique. Nobody else knew about nobody else was going to say that Allah gave him this exclusive Dora say this.

00:16:17--> 00:16:26

So Musa alayhis salam asks Allah again, this is all narrated in the same narration. Yeah, Robbie, teach me a dua

00:16:27--> 00:16:33

that no one else has known about or said except me.

00:16:34--> 00:16:42

And Allah response to him and teach us Musa alayhis salam, a lesson for him. And for all of us, says yeah, Musa

00:16:44--> 00:16:49

if you were take the the killer and the remembrance

00:16:50--> 00:17:11

of everything in the heavens and the earth and what is in between the relevance that you say that this is everything that makes tisby and the care of Allah, all the angels, you name it, they are all in this category. Allah says if you take every zikr, interspeech that they have all made,

00:17:12--> 00:17:25

and you put it on one side of a scale, and you put La Ilaha illa Allah on the other side, this, this shahada will outweigh all of that.

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

So what does this mean?

00:17:30--> 00:17:34

Keep this in mind. Every one of us know la isla hurt you

00:23:20--> 00:23:55

One word. That's it, the lives of these people changed completely. Let our young people see. I just went to a hotel. And it changed me. I just heard it remind my mom, my dad, my brother, my sister, my friend, they just reminded me, it wasn't anything to do with Islam. They just told me Listen, chill, relax, there's no need to be upset. That's all they told me. But I took that seriously. That is the wisdom behind these stories, these companions, these scholars, these great people,

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

when they heard Savannah,

00:24:00--> 00:24:01

while Varna

00:24:03--> 00:24:42

they completely submitted to the message which leads us to the third thing which is what we will conclude within this in the third, second part of the hook, but I pray that Allah subhanaw taala keeps on our hearts and our lives always open to welcoming any teaching any reminder any guidance from our dean. This is the path that Allah has prescribed for you and us to find success in this world and in the era. I pray that we are examples of that, not only to each other, but to especially our sons and our daughters. Allahumma Amin, OPPO Domantas Marlon was staford Hola. Hola. Welcome Marissa Erie Muslimeen I'm in Cali them first of Pharaoh in the hood la foto Rahim.

00:24:51--> 00:24:55

hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah woebot number three

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

what does Islam

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

I mean to you.

00:25:04--> 00:25:28

You ever get asked that or think about, like, what does Islam mean to you? And if we went around here and asked every one of us What does Islam mean to you? I'm sure we would all speak very passionately, very sincerely, that this is our life. This is my purpose. This is why I'm alive. I want to serve Allah and this is the way to do it through Islam.

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

So brothers and sisters,

00:25:34--> 00:25:36

couple of things I want to leave you with

00:25:38--> 00:25:40

the great companion, Abu Dhabi,

00:25:41--> 00:25:42

for the Allahu Allah and

00:25:44--> 00:25:51

he was known that before Islam, he was a very wise and successful businessman.

00:25:52--> 00:26:08

When the Prophet alayhi salatu salam receives the revelation becomes a prophet, Abu Dhabi, Dan leaves off his business after he accepts Islam, he leaves off his business, he literally shut it down. Now I'm not suggesting you do the same.

00:26:09--> 00:26:17

I just want to paint an image and then we can extract something from this image from this example. So Abu Dhabi shuts down his business.

00:26:19--> 00:26:23

And his family describes that after that, after Islam came

00:26:24--> 00:26:49

his entire life, his attitude, his perspective, everything changed. He became a man that would fast during the days pray during the nights give for the sake of Allah, He gave up all of this for Allah keep that image in mind. Number two, the second example, the great companion sebut ignore Christ and not have the Allahu

00:26:51--> 00:27:30

subid Hypno Christ was known to have a loud voice. Like he just, we all know somebody like that. Like it's just they're just loud. There's no matter what they're talking about, even if they quote an A or Hadith they're just allowed, but it's different when you're talking about Islam. Because when you're talking about Allah or His Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam there's an etiquette that's involved here that you have to train yourself to follow. And that etiquette is captured in the first area of sudoku Maratea you will Latina Mendola Tulfo swatter. confocal Sultan Nabi, or people of Eman if you have an ounce of iman in you Don't raise your voice above the voice of the Prophet are

00:27:30--> 00:27:48

they his salatu salam, the real amount they explained this is not just the literal thing. Like you don't this is wasn't just for the Companions because the Prophet is there when he's talking just lower your voice. Even you and I have to practice the same a how when you hear Behati

00:27:50--> 00:27:58

when you hear Muslim, when you hear my daughter Mizzi when you hear an AI being quoted to you being talked about being brought up in a conversation

00:27:59--> 00:28:06

this is an attitude relaxed low your voice Listen, how Muslims treat this etiquette today.

00:28:07--> 00:28:44

How sometimes Muslims get into arguments and you start fighting about issues of Islam thinking they're solving the problem still thinking they're solving this issue and not realizing Wait a minute that basic etiquette I'm missing. When that bit of no Castel Rahim mahal already Allah Han heard this year was revealed. You know what he did? He went home and he locked himself in his house for days. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam noticed where it's dabit or the Allah Han and the companion said, Ya rasool Allah when he heard this was revealed, he locked himself in the house and he doesn't want to talk to anybody.

00:28:45--> 00:28:51

Later on, he asks him, Prophet alayhi salatu salam meets him and asks him

00:28:52--> 00:28:59

Why did you lock yourself in the house like this? Listen to his response. Yeah, rasool Allah.

00:29:00--> 00:29:06

I was afraid that when this verse came down, I was gonna go to the hellfire.

00:29:08--> 00:29:22

Because listen to my voice. Listen to the way I talk out also to Allah. And because of his attitude, the seriousness he showed, the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam says, Oh third that you will go to Jannah.

00:29:23--> 00:29:28

One etiquette, that's it. Finally I leave you with this.

00:29:30--> 00:29:39

There was a man by the name of Abu Dhabi, Jana Ansari, he participated in the Battle of better this is what I leave you with.

00:29:40--> 00:29:48

And when he participated in the Battle of Beto, he saw someone from the Quraysh throw an arrow

00:29:49--> 00:30:00

and the arrow was going straight towards an area where the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was, it wasn't aiming for him directly. He couldn't tell but

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

he saw he was going towards that direction. He ran over, jumped around the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and took the arrow.

00:30:10--> 00:30:14

The other companions when they saw that, they said the arrows kept coming

00:30:16--> 00:30:21

until the narration mentioned until we thought we were looking at a hedgehog.

00:30:23--> 00:30:38

If you don't know what a hedgehog is, go online and just look at the picture. That's the image that they thought they were looking at. Why have I told you these three things? This is what I leave here with my brothers and sisters. What does Islam mean to you and me

00:30:39--> 00:30:56

to these companions, one year change their whole life. They went home they started thinking my goodness, my voice, what am I going to do? How am I going to change? And because of that concern, that importance, they got Janna

00:30:57--> 00:31:09

another companion our risks, it's all because why I don't want the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hurt, okay, he's not here with us anymore. But when you hear that our deen

00:31:10--> 00:31:18

has these arrows being thrown at it every single day. How do you respond?

00:31:20--> 00:31:22

You know, somebody was telling me a few days ago.

00:31:24--> 00:31:32

Imam should talk about the real issues. And this is the exact words he says you guys are too soft. I looked at the brother and I said

00:31:34--> 00:31:36

where is your voice?

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

Why don't you participate in this?

00:31:43--> 00:31:50

Don't throw this all towards one person or one group. Where is he? Where the how important is Dean is to you.

00:31:51--> 00:32:35

The skill the knowledge the presence Allah put you alive in 2023 not the rest of us. Just not you as well. Where is your voice? That's what young people need to see in us brothers and sisters and this is what I leave you with. They need to see that no matter how little mom and dad knows about our deen no matter how little those brothers and sisters that domestic they know about the deen Subhana Allah when they know something they commit themselves to it. If you still don't get this talk to our grandfathers and our grandmothers, and see how Islam how they were taught back home where they came from. One area one Hadith one Masjid in the tyre, village, that's all they had. That was the Islam

00:32:35--> 00:33:05

of their entire life. So there is no excuse for us. I pray that Allah subhanaw taala keeps us close to him. May Allah continue to teach us this deen and may Allah subhanho wa Taala continue to elevate us Allah who was then peace and blessings to our Rasul Salawat turabi wa salam O Allah subhanho wa Taala Phaeton xili in Allahu wa mela Iike tahu EUSA Lunarlon Nabi your Latina Emanuel Solu Ali who was a Limitus Lima Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad wa ala Ali Muhammad Kamal Seletar Ibrahim
