We would like to give them an opportunity,

00:00:12--> 00:00:14

to recite some verses of the Quran. So

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

from my my left from my right is

00:00:17--> 00:00:18

Qari Usama,

00:00:19--> 00:00:21

and he is stationed as at Masjid Darul

00:00:21--> 00:00:23

Iman for the month of Ramadan.

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

And just beside him is, Kari Murad.

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

He's actually from Algeria,

00:00:29--> 00:00:31

and he is stationed at, Abu Hurairah Mosque

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

for the month of Ramadan.

00:00:33--> 00:00:34

And, of course,

00:00:35--> 00:00:36

we have our,

00:00:37--> 00:00:37

our star,

00:00:38--> 00:00:39

Khorib Abdul Fattah

00:00:40--> 00:00:41

and, and, Khorib,

00:00:43--> 00:00:43

Ridwan,

00:00:45--> 00:00:45

Tafadl.

00:00:46--> 00:00:49

Inshallah. So we will start inshallah with Kari,

00:00:49--> 00:00:50

Usama,

00:00:50--> 00:00:52

and he will recite to us for about

00:00:52--> 00:00:53

5 or 7 minutes. Inshallah.

00:11:52--> 00:11:54

We will have, Kari Murad.

00:11:54--> 00:11:57

Kari Usama is actually from Morocco, and he

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

is stationed at Daryl Eman.

00:11:59--> 00:12:01

Kari Murad is actually from Algeria,

00:12:02--> 00:12:03

and he is stationed at

00:12:04--> 00:12:05

Abu Hurairah.

00:21:31--> 00:21:33

She's doing now? Or oh, you wanna go?

00:21:34--> 00:21:36

Oh, okay. Okay. Because he wants to go.

00:21:37--> 00:21:38

Okay.

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

Sheikh Murad.

00:21:42--> 00:21:45

Next up, we have, Sheikh Mazamil. Sheikh Muzammil

00:21:45--> 00:21:47

is a imam at, Masjid Al Ansar.

00:21:48--> 00:21:51

He has actually taught, a number of students

00:21:51--> 00:21:54

and also engaged in Quranic competition internationally.

00:21:55--> 00:21:58

Some of his students have actually won Quranic

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

competitions internationally.

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

Before I ask him, I just wanted to

00:22:01--> 00:22:03

make an announcement that someone has dropped an

00:22:03--> 00:22:04

envelope.

00:22:05--> 00:22:08

I think, on the the front of the

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

envelope, it says fitra.

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

So if you would like to retrieve that

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

envelope, please check with the brothers at the

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

donation table.

00:22:26--> 00:22:28

Yeah. If I can ask the the brothers

00:22:28--> 00:22:30

to come up come up a little more.

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

Show show them some love.

00:22:32--> 00:22:34

Can you come up, please, brother?

00:26:56--> 00:26:56

Just

00:35:24--> 00:35:24

Takbeer. May Allah

00:35:25--> 00:35:26

reward you.

00:35:26--> 00:35:27

May Allah

00:35:28--> 00:35:31

continue to bless you. Anybody knows what the

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

meaning of a hafiz?

00:35:33--> 00:35:34

What does hafiz mean?

00:35:37--> 00:35:39

Someone who has memorized the Quran.

00:35:40--> 00:35:40

Right?

00:35:41--> 00:35:44

As Sheikh Abdulhamid taught us in our resilient

00:35:44--> 00:35:45

hour on Wednesday,

00:35:45--> 00:35:47

there is a deeper meaning to it.

00:35:48--> 00:35:50

It's not just someone who has memorized the

00:35:50--> 00:35:50

Quran,

00:35:50--> 00:35:53

but it's someone who protects the Quran.

00:35:53--> 00:35:55

Someone who guards the Quran.

00:35:55--> 00:35:58

And so our hafiz all over the world

00:35:58--> 00:36:00

are guardians of the Quran.

00:36:00--> 00:36:02

If something were to happen and all of

00:36:02--> 00:36:04

the masahif of the Quran were destroyed,

00:36:04--> 00:36:06

all of the computers were destroyed,

00:36:07--> 00:36:09

then we know, and this happens only in

00:36:09--> 00:36:09

Islam,

00:36:10--> 00:36:12

we know that we have thousands and thousands

00:36:12--> 00:36:13

of huffas

00:36:14--> 00:36:16

who have guarded and are protecting the Quran.

00:36:16--> 00:36:17

SubhanAllah.

00:36:17--> 00:36:20

InshaAllah, we will pivot now to our main

00:36:20--> 00:36:20

program

00:36:21--> 00:36:22

with, Sheikh Muslikhan.

00:36:23--> 00:36:26

Sheikh Muslikhan is known to all of you.

00:36:26--> 00:36:28

He is a teacher here, an instructor,

00:36:28--> 00:36:29

a katib,

00:36:29--> 00:36:32

a youth mentor all across the GTA and,

00:36:32--> 00:36:34

and across Canada.

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

And Inshallah, he will speak to us about

00:36:36--> 00:36:38

the the the divine guidance,

00:36:39--> 00:36:40

of the Quran and the sunnah of the

00:36:40--> 00:36:42

prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam.

00:36:43--> 00:36:43

It's my pleasure to call

00:36:44--> 00:36:46

on Sheikh Khosla to address us.

00:36:47--> 00:36:48

Yes.

00:36:48--> 00:36:50

Before I do that, please, inshallah,

00:36:50--> 00:36:52

I know that all of you are excited.

00:36:52--> 00:36:54

It's the last Iftar program.

00:36:54--> 00:36:57

Give sheikh give the sheikh some attention insha'Allah.

00:36:58--> 00:37:00

We will we will talk about the Iftar

00:37:00--> 00:37:01

program afterwards, inshallah.

00:37:13--> 00:37:14

Don't worry. I'm not gonna fundraise.

00:37:14--> 00:37:15

Okay?

00:37:17--> 00:37:19

So I'm just going to ask as they're

00:37:19--> 00:37:20

setting up there.

00:37:21--> 00:37:23

I need to hear myself breathe.

00:37:24--> 00:37:27

So let's see how quiet we can get

00:37:27--> 00:37:28

this across the room.

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

And the volunteers,

00:37:31--> 00:37:33

they're clinging, and clanging, and moving thing that's

00:37:34--> 00:37:36

That's the thing we want to hear. We

00:37:36--> 00:37:38

want to hear volunteers doing their things, but,

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

inshallah,

00:37:41--> 00:37:41

the conversation,

00:37:42--> 00:37:43

somehow,

00:37:43--> 00:37:44

we have to

00:37:45--> 00:37:46

get that under control.

00:37:46--> 00:37:49

Because even out of respect for the reciters

00:37:49--> 00:37:51

as well, not just for me and and

00:37:51--> 00:37:54

tonight's presentation, but for everything that's happening right

00:37:54--> 00:37:57

now. So can we ask from everyone, brothers,

00:37:57--> 00:37:58

you look like you got it under control,

00:37:58--> 00:37:59

sisters.

00:38:00--> 00:38:02

I would come over there, but that probably

00:38:02--> 00:38:03

would be a little weird, so I won't

00:38:03--> 00:38:06

do that. But I hope that, Insha'Allah, the

00:38:06--> 00:38:08

same thing amongst the, sisters.

00:38:14--> 00:38:15

Okay. Let's get going.

00:38:22--> 00:38:23

Yep.

00:38:25--> 00:38:26

Yeah. That's cool.

00:38:26--> 00:38:27

Okay.

00:38:47--> 00:38:49

So I will speak to you

00:38:50--> 00:38:53

for about 20 minutes or so, maybe 25

00:38:53--> 00:38:54

minutes max,

00:38:54--> 00:38:55

and

00:38:55--> 00:38:56

you have to,

00:38:56--> 00:38:57

as usual,

00:38:58--> 00:38:59

run out to another program.

00:39:01--> 00:39:03

My topic for you to do today or

00:39:03--> 00:39:04

tonight

00:39:04--> 00:39:07

for this last and final Saturday program

00:39:07--> 00:39:09

in the blessed month of Shahru al Mubarak

00:39:10--> 00:39:13

is one that is it revolves around the

00:39:13--> 00:39:15

guidance of the Quran. Now I'm gonna share

00:39:15--> 00:39:17

with you an ayah. Just listen to the

00:39:17--> 00:39:19

first part of the ayah, it's very long,

00:39:20--> 00:39:22

but I won't go through the entire ayah.

00:39:22--> 00:39:25

Allah Aso Wa Jal says in Surat Al

00:39:25--> 00:39:26

Hadid

00:39:26--> 00:39:28

Have you heard of this surah before?

00:39:28--> 00:39:29

Surat Al Hadid.

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

Okay.

00:39:31--> 00:39:32

Surat Al Hadid,

00:39:33--> 00:39:34

its audience

00:39:35--> 00:39:36

is a very

00:39:37--> 00:39:38

unique audience.

00:39:39--> 00:39:42

It's not just talking to all Muslims and

00:39:42--> 00:39:44

believers and mankind,

00:39:45--> 00:39:46

but it's talking to

00:39:47--> 00:39:48

amongst the believers,

00:39:49--> 00:39:50

those that are having

00:39:51--> 00:39:52

a tough

00:39:52--> 00:39:55

and difficult time connecting with Allah.

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

So it's talking to an audience that's having

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

a particularly

00:40:01--> 00:40:02

difficult

00:40:03--> 00:40:04

time and struggle

00:40:05--> 00:40:06

just connecting with Islam.

00:40:07--> 00:40:09

So that tells you that the way we

00:40:09--> 00:40:10

connect with Allah

00:40:11--> 00:40:13

is very different.

00:40:14--> 00:40:15

There is an ayah

00:40:15--> 00:40:18

in Surat Al Isra that sounds like this,

00:40:24--> 00:40:26

Allah is telling the Prophet

00:40:29--> 00:40:30

that every

00:40:30--> 00:40:31

single one of us

00:40:33--> 00:40:34

should practice

00:40:34--> 00:40:35

this religion

00:40:36--> 00:40:39

based on what Allah has given you,

00:40:39--> 00:40:42

based on your own predisposition.

00:40:43--> 00:40:45

Now, understand this for a minute.

00:40:46--> 00:40:47

You know, some Muslims

00:40:48--> 00:40:51

are really good at putting together events.

00:40:52--> 00:40:54

You know, they can be on the streets

00:40:54--> 00:40:55

and protest

00:40:56--> 00:40:56

and advocate,

00:40:57--> 00:40:59

they're really good at doing that.

00:41:00--> 00:41:01

They can organize

00:41:01--> 00:41:02

massive events.

00:41:03--> 00:41:05

They can do so much for the community,

00:41:06--> 00:41:08

but they're not gonna give you a khutba.

00:41:09--> 00:41:11

They're not going to lead the jama'a.

00:41:11--> 00:41:14

They're not gonna be able to do other

00:41:14--> 00:41:15

elements of our religion.

00:41:17--> 00:41:19

And I want you to know

00:41:19--> 00:41:22

that based on this ayah of Surat al

00:41:22--> 00:41:25

Isra that that is okay. Remember this,

00:41:26--> 00:41:28

we don't need to do

00:41:29--> 00:41:30

the exact

00:41:30--> 00:41:32

same thing to get to Jannah.

00:41:33--> 00:41:34

We don't all

00:41:35--> 00:41:38

have to do the exact same thing.

00:41:38--> 00:41:42

We have a bare minimum of principles that

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

we follow.

00:41:43--> 00:41:45

We all must believe in Allah.

00:41:45--> 00:41:48

We must believe in the sunnah. We must

00:41:48--> 00:41:49

love this religion.

00:41:50--> 00:41:52

We must follow the 5 pillars of Islam,

00:41:53--> 00:41:56

the 6 pillars of iman. We have a

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

foundation that is exactly the same,

00:41:59--> 00:42:01

But what extends from the?

00:42:05--> 00:42:06

You know what

00:42:06--> 00:42:07

shaqlun means?

00:42:08--> 00:42:09

It comes from the word shaqlun.

00:42:11--> 00:42:13

Shaqlun is like somebody's appearance.

00:42:14--> 00:42:16

Like I would say to you, shakluhu,

00:42:17--> 00:42:20

like the way he looks, the way he's

00:42:20--> 00:42:21

dressed,

00:42:21--> 00:42:24

the way he combs his beard, combs his

00:42:24--> 00:42:26

hair, the colors he chooses,

00:42:26--> 00:42:28

that's called shaklun or shakil.

00:42:30--> 00:42:31

So when Allah is saying,

00:42:32--> 00:42:32

practice

00:42:34--> 00:42:36

based on your own shekel,

00:42:37--> 00:42:40

it means so here's your first tip

00:42:40--> 00:42:43

of how to get connected with the guidance

00:42:43--> 00:42:44

of the Quran

00:42:45--> 00:42:47

is you have got to know what Allah

00:42:47--> 00:42:48

has given you

00:42:49--> 00:42:51

that's unique to you that no one else

00:42:51--> 00:42:54

is doing. Nobody else is able to do

00:42:54--> 00:42:55

it as good as you.

00:42:56--> 00:42:58

Now I get it. There are some people

00:42:58--> 00:43:00

out there that can do a little bit

00:43:00--> 00:43:01

of everything,

00:43:01--> 00:43:04

but every single one of us

00:43:05--> 00:43:08

has this one thing in us that Allah

00:43:08--> 00:43:11

gave us that's your strength.

00:43:12--> 00:43:14

Now, it doesn't even have to be related

00:43:14--> 00:43:15

to the religion.

00:43:16--> 00:43:18

Some Muslims are just really patient,

00:43:19--> 00:43:20

some wives

00:43:20--> 00:43:21

are really patient,

00:43:22--> 00:43:24

some husbands are really patient,

00:43:25--> 00:43:28

and then sometimes or in most households, you

00:43:28--> 00:43:30

have one more patient than the other. That's

00:43:30--> 00:43:31

okay.

00:43:32--> 00:43:35

Some husbands are really tough, and strong, and

00:43:35--> 00:43:38

can handle a lot out there. Other husbands

00:43:38--> 00:43:38

can't.

00:43:39--> 00:43:42

Some brothers are really good at heavy lifting.

00:43:42--> 00:43:43

Others aren't.

00:43:44--> 00:43:47

Every single one of us outside of Islam,

00:43:47--> 00:43:48

just in life,

00:43:49--> 00:43:51

has a strength in you.

00:43:51--> 00:43:53

So the first thing that I want to

00:43:54--> 00:43:55

share with you is

00:43:56--> 00:44:00

to understand what is your unique strength Allah

00:44:00--> 00:44:01

blessed you with.

00:44:02--> 00:44:05

And this Ramadan, as we are inching towards

00:44:05--> 00:44:07

the end, you should have already seen

00:44:07--> 00:44:10

and understood what that strength is. You should

00:44:10--> 00:44:13

have already figured it out. If you've never

00:44:13--> 00:44:15

figured it out in this month of Ramadan,

00:44:16--> 00:44:18

you should have already seen glimpses

00:44:18--> 00:44:21

of a little something that you can do,

00:44:22--> 00:44:24

that others can't do, but it still keeps

00:44:24--> 00:44:26

you on the path of obedience.

00:44:30--> 00:44:32

You know, this first point,

00:44:32--> 00:44:33

I have to tell you,

00:44:35--> 00:44:36

this first point really

00:44:37--> 00:44:39

changed my life

00:44:39--> 00:44:41

because it made me feel

00:44:41--> 00:44:44

that I don't have to do everything

00:44:44--> 00:44:46

that others expect from me.

00:44:47--> 00:44:48

You know, I'll get called,

00:44:48--> 00:44:50

believe it or not, and I don't have

00:44:50--> 00:44:52

a voice for this by the way, so

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

don't think that I do.

00:44:54--> 00:44:57

I have been called several times to sing

00:44:57--> 00:44:57

nasheeds.

00:44:59--> 00:45:02

I can't even sing something attractive to my

00:45:02--> 00:45:05

own baby without making her cry,

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

but let alone sing to an audience. I

00:45:07--> 00:45:09

don't have that kind of voice.

00:45:10--> 00:45:13

So I know I don't need to master

00:45:13--> 00:45:14

that art

00:45:15--> 00:45:17

in order to be on the path of

00:45:17--> 00:45:18

serving the community.

00:45:19--> 00:45:21

Somebody else can do that.

00:45:21--> 00:45:23

I can do other things.

00:45:23--> 00:45:26

Find your place in this Ummah. This is

00:45:26--> 00:45:28

the first point. Number 2.

00:45:28--> 00:45:31

Here's the next ayah in Surat Al Hadid

00:45:31--> 00:45:32

that I want to share with you.

00:45:33--> 00:45:35

Have you heard a verse that starts like

00:45:35--> 00:45:36

this, Allah

00:45:37--> 00:45:37

says,

00:45:45--> 00:45:46

Listen to the Ayah.

00:45:47--> 00:45:48

Allah says,

00:45:50--> 00:45:53

Hasn't the time come already?

00:45:53--> 00:45:55

Hasn't it already arrived? By the way, this

00:45:55--> 00:45:58

is Allah's words. If I sound a little

00:45:58--> 00:46:02

mean, it's not me. The ayah is being

00:46:02--> 00:46:03

really firm,

00:46:04--> 00:46:05

really blunt,

00:46:06--> 00:46:08

and straightforward to you and us. Listen to

00:46:08--> 00:46:09

it.

00:46:12--> 00:46:14

Hasn't the time come already

00:46:14--> 00:46:16

that you've been believing in this faith? You've

00:46:16--> 00:46:17

had iman,

00:46:19--> 00:46:21

Isn't it about

00:46:25--> 00:46:25

time?

00:46:26--> 00:46:27

That their hearts

00:46:28--> 00:46:29

are humbled

00:46:30--> 00:46:32

by the remembrance of Allah.

00:46:33--> 00:46:35

Now, let's break this down. You have to

00:46:35--> 00:46:37

understand what this ayah is trying to tell

00:46:37--> 00:46:39

us. Okay?

00:46:39--> 00:46:42

Number 1, who is Allah talking to?

00:46:44--> 00:46:45

Think about it.

00:46:46--> 00:46:47

Allah is talking

00:46:48--> 00:46:50

to the greatest

00:46:51--> 00:46:51

believers

00:46:52--> 00:46:54

that will ever walk this earth, the Sahabas

00:46:55--> 00:46:55

radiAllahu

00:46:57--> 00:47:00

anhu. Allah is asking them and telling them,

00:47:02--> 00:47:03

what is wrong with you?

00:47:05--> 00:47:07

Hasn't the time come already? You should humble

00:47:07--> 00:47:09

your heart to the remembrance of Allah. And

00:47:09--> 00:47:11

I'll explain what that means in a second.

00:47:12--> 00:47:15

Imagine telling companions that. Imagine if Abu Bakr,

00:47:16--> 00:47:17

and Umar,

00:47:17--> 00:47:18

and Uthman,

00:47:19--> 00:47:20

and Khadija,

00:47:20--> 00:47:24

and Aisha radiiallahu anhu, all of them walked

00:47:24--> 00:47:25

into IAT right now.

00:47:26--> 00:47:28

And they heard this ayah from the Prophet

00:47:28--> 00:47:30

alaihi sallahu alaihi wa sallam. How do you

00:47:30--> 00:47:33

think they would feel? You know what Abdullah

00:47:33--> 00:47:34

ibn Mas'ud

00:47:35--> 00:47:37

said about this ayah? Listen to it, Okay,

00:47:37--> 00:47:38

brothers and sisters?

00:47:39--> 00:47:41

Just listen to what he says about this

00:47:41--> 00:47:41

ayah.

00:47:42--> 00:47:43

He says only

00:47:43--> 00:47:44

4

00:47:45--> 00:47:46

years went by

00:47:48--> 00:47:49

4

00:47:49--> 00:47:49

years

00:47:50--> 00:47:50

went by.

00:47:51--> 00:47:52

Only

00:47:52--> 00:47:56

4 years went by, we were Muslim,

00:47:56--> 00:47:58

and Allah gave us this ayah.

00:48:00--> 00:48:02

Almost all of us sitting here have been

00:48:02--> 00:48:04

Muslims for more than 4 years.

00:48:06--> 00:48:08

Abdullah ibn Masrud is the companion

00:48:09--> 00:48:11

that is said to resemble

00:48:12--> 00:48:12

the Prophet

00:48:14--> 00:48:14

the most.

00:48:15--> 00:48:17

They said that even though he was a

00:48:17--> 00:48:17

midget,

00:48:19--> 00:48:21

if you walk behind him, you would think

00:48:21--> 00:48:23

that's the Prophet alaihis salatu wa sallam. He

00:48:23--> 00:48:26

was really frail and skinny. He sacrificed

00:48:27--> 00:48:28

a lot for

00:48:28--> 00:48:29

Islam.

00:48:29--> 00:48:32

He is saying, we were only Muslims for

00:48:32--> 00:48:34

4 years and we got this ayah.

00:48:36--> 00:48:38

All of us here, most of us have

00:48:38--> 00:48:41

been Muslims our entire lives. You ever asked

00:48:41--> 00:48:42

yourself this?

00:48:43--> 00:48:45

Hasn't this time come when I get my

00:48:45--> 00:48:47

act together? That's what the ayah is asking.

00:48:50--> 00:48:52

You have been given iman.

00:48:54--> 00:48:57

This is your strength, your gift. You didn't

00:48:57--> 00:48:59

do that, You didn't get that because you

00:48:59--> 00:49:00

really love Islam.

00:49:02--> 00:49:05

You didn't get iman. I didn't get iman

00:49:05--> 00:49:07

because we love this Masjid.

00:49:08--> 00:49:11

We got iman because Allah chose

00:49:11--> 00:49:13

every single one of us

00:49:13--> 00:49:15

that we are candidates, and we

00:49:16--> 00:49:17

are chosen

00:49:17--> 00:49:19

to carry this faith. Okay.

00:49:20--> 00:49:24

So this ayah is really, really directed to

00:49:24--> 00:49:25

me and you.

00:49:25--> 00:49:27

Now, what is Allah trying to ask us

00:49:27--> 00:49:28

here?

00:49:30--> 00:49:32

There's a famous hadith by

00:49:33--> 00:49:34

Abdullah ibn Usamit

00:49:35--> 00:49:37

It's an authentic hadith. Okay?

00:49:38--> 00:49:40

The first knowledge

00:49:41--> 00:49:42

that is lifted

00:49:43--> 00:49:45

away from the ummah, guess what it is?

00:49:45--> 00:49:46

Does anybody know?

00:49:46--> 00:49:48

Shout it out to me. Does anybody know?

00:49:48--> 00:49:49

What's the first knowledge

00:49:50--> 00:49:53

that will be lifted and erased from the

00:49:53--> 00:49:55

Ummah? What is it?

00:49:58--> 00:49:58

Khushur.

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

Now you're probably thinking,

00:50:02--> 00:50:02

Khushur

00:50:03--> 00:50:05

in this hadith is called Ilm.

00:50:07--> 00:50:08

Yeah. Khushur

00:50:09--> 00:50:11

is called 'ilm, it's called knowledge. You know

00:50:11--> 00:50:12

why?

00:50:13--> 00:50:15

Khushur is not just something you do.

00:50:16--> 00:50:18

You have to understand why you do it,

00:50:19--> 00:50:21

what's in it for you when you do

00:50:21--> 00:50:21

it,

00:50:22--> 00:50:24

who you're doing it for,

00:50:24--> 00:50:26

who you're standing in front of when you're

00:50:26--> 00:50:28

doing it, and the consequences

00:50:29--> 00:50:31

when you don't do it. What's shushor?

00:50:31--> 00:50:33

Let me demonstrate, okay?

00:50:33--> 00:50:35

Everybody watch me.

00:50:35--> 00:50:37

It's the only time I'll tell the sisters

00:50:37--> 00:50:39

Yes, please. Watch me for a second. Okay?

00:50:40--> 00:50:42

Watch me, guys. This is khushur.

00:50:43--> 00:50:46

There are about 11 words in the Quran

00:50:46--> 00:50:48

to describe being afraid

00:50:50--> 00:50:51

and being scared.

00:50:52--> 00:50:54

Khushur is one of them.

00:50:54--> 00:50:57

Khushur means to be afraid. What's the difference

00:50:57--> 00:51:00

between khushur and everything else? You see, when

00:51:00--> 00:51:02

I tell you akhir, you should have khushur

00:51:02--> 00:51:03

in your salah, this is what I'm asking

00:51:03--> 00:51:06

you to do, watch me. This is khushur.

00:51:06--> 00:51:08

When you're praying in salah

00:51:09--> 00:51:11

and you're absolutely

00:51:11--> 00:51:12

still,

00:51:13--> 00:51:15

this is not khushur. You're losing khushur if

00:51:15--> 00:51:16

you do this.

00:51:17--> 00:51:19

And then you fix your jacket,

00:51:19--> 00:51:21

check your hair real quick,

00:51:21--> 00:51:23

hijab falls off, you put it back on,

00:51:23--> 00:51:24

oh my gosh,

00:51:25--> 00:51:27

Constantly throw out the salah. It doesn't mean

00:51:27--> 00:51:27

your salah

00:51:28--> 00:51:29

is canceled.

00:51:29--> 00:51:32

You're losing your khushur when you're constantly distracted

00:51:32--> 00:51:34

and moving around. Khushur,

00:51:35--> 00:51:37

you're literally frozen still.

00:51:38--> 00:51:39

It's the first thing

00:51:40--> 00:51:43

that is lifted from the ummah before the

00:51:43--> 00:51:45

day of judgment when it comes to knowledge.

00:51:46--> 00:51:48

What does that mean when in terms of

00:51:48--> 00:51:49

concentrating for Allah?

00:51:50--> 00:51:50

Your

00:51:51--> 00:51:52

focus is

00:51:52--> 00:51:54

frozen and still

00:51:54--> 00:51:57

focused on whom? To Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:52:04--> 00:52:05

You know, for sure,

00:52:06--> 00:52:07

it's really

00:52:08--> 00:52:11

scary to know there will come a time

00:52:12--> 00:52:13

all the masjids

00:52:13--> 00:52:16

will be full like you see it full

00:52:16--> 00:52:16

today,

00:52:17--> 00:52:20

and not a single person will have kushur.

00:52:22--> 00:52:23

There will come a time

00:52:24--> 00:52:28

not a single person in the entire masjid

00:52:28--> 00:52:30

will have this. May Allah

00:52:30--> 00:52:32

preserve the khushruh in our hearts and in

00:52:32--> 00:52:33

our lives.

00:52:35--> 00:52:37

Let me conclude now.

00:52:38--> 00:52:39

Why does this happen?

00:52:40--> 00:52:43

Why is it that people lose this khushur?

00:52:44--> 00:52:46

If you lose khushur, you lose Allah. If

00:52:46--> 00:52:49

you lose Allah, you lose everything. Quran, Prophet,

00:52:49--> 00:52:49

everything.

00:52:51--> 00:52:53

Why does this happen? It's in the ayah,

00:52:53--> 00:52:54

brothers and sisters, and this is what I'm

00:52:54--> 00:52:55

gonna leave you with, insha'Allah.

00:53:00--> 00:53:01

What is the next word?

00:53:04--> 00:53:04

Because

00:53:04--> 00:53:06

of the remembrance of Allah.

00:53:08--> 00:53:09

Allah is saying,

00:53:09--> 00:53:12

it's because you don't have enough remembrance of

00:53:12--> 00:53:15

Allah in you. And in conclusion, I will

00:53:15--> 00:53:16

say this,

00:53:16--> 00:53:18

Remember, the remembrance of Allah is not that

00:53:18--> 00:53:21

you're sitting with the Quran all day and

00:53:21--> 00:53:21

night reciting,

00:53:22--> 00:53:23

not that you're just saying, Subhanallah,

00:53:24--> 00:53:27

alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar all the time. It's not

00:53:27--> 00:53:29

just a verbal thing. The zikr of Allah

00:53:30--> 00:53:31

is when you're driving

00:53:32--> 00:53:32

and somebody

00:53:33--> 00:53:35

really upsets you on the road,

00:53:35--> 00:53:37

you want to run them off the road,

00:53:37--> 00:53:38

but you say to yourself,

00:53:39--> 00:53:40

I'm fasting.

00:53:40--> 00:53:43

Let me let it go. Zikr of Allah.

00:53:43--> 00:53:46

You see something and hear something that's inappropriate,

00:53:47--> 00:53:48

you know it's inappropriate,

00:53:48--> 00:53:50

you try to say or do something about

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

it, it's not working, nobody's listening to you.

00:53:53--> 00:53:54

At least

00:53:54--> 00:53:56

you remembered Allah.

00:53:56--> 00:53:58

I want you to remember zikr of Allah

00:53:58--> 00:54:00

like this, okay, brothers and sisters?

00:54:01--> 00:54:04

Imagine that all the knowledge in your mind,

00:54:05--> 00:54:08

your intelligence, is a bunch of bookshelves.

00:54:09--> 00:54:12

Zikr of Allah is you take a book

00:54:12--> 00:54:15

off of that bookshelf, and you open it.

00:54:15--> 00:54:18

Think of zikr of Allah like this. So

00:54:18--> 00:54:20

now you know for whenever the zikr of

00:54:20--> 00:54:22

Allah is called from you,

00:54:23--> 00:54:24

time, and place, and scenario,

00:54:25--> 00:54:27

there's a specific remembrance

00:54:27--> 00:54:28

or book

00:54:29--> 00:54:30

that you pull out

00:54:31--> 00:54:33

and you remind yourself at the end of

00:54:33--> 00:54:35

the day, anything you say and do is

00:54:35--> 00:54:37

for the sake of Allah. You do this,

00:54:37--> 00:54:39

you will always be close to the Quran.

00:54:39--> 00:54:41

We will always be close to the Quran.

00:54:42--> 00:54:44

I pray that Allah, Subhanahu wa ta'ala, keep

00:54:44--> 00:54:45

us close to the Quran, and as a

00:54:45--> 00:54:48

result, keep us close to Him. Say, Allahumma

00:54:48--> 00:54:51

ameen. I pray that Allah, Azza wa Jal,

00:54:51--> 00:54:52

keep us close

00:54:52--> 00:54:54

to the sunnah and the practice of our

00:54:54--> 00:54:57

Prophet, alayhis salatu wa sallam, in this world,

00:54:57--> 00:54:58

And as a result,

00:54:58--> 00:55:00

we are near him on the day of

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

judgment, and we enter with him, injanatul Firdausul

00:55:03--> 00:55:05

Ala Sae, lahuma'almeen.

00:55:05--> 00:55:06

And finally,

00:55:06--> 00:55:07

to all of you jazakamalahu

00:55:08--> 00:55:09

khayran. May Allah

00:55:09--> 00:55:11

accept from us our fast, and

00:55:12--> 00:55:14

accept from us our ibadat in this blessed

00:55:14--> 00:55:15

month of shahruh al mubarakallahu

00:55:15--> 00:55:17

min ameen. So these are the words that

00:55:17--> 00:55:20

I leave you with, brothers and sisters. Fajazakamu'lahu

00:55:20--> 00:55:21

khayra,

00:55:21--> 00:55:24

You have all been wonderful in terms of

00:55:24--> 00:55:25

your attention, jazakumullah

00:55:25--> 00:55:27

khairah, and I really mean that.

00:55:33--> 00:55:33

Sheikh Musley.

00:55:34--> 00:55:36

Our next item on the program on my

00:55:36--> 00:55:39

agenda, Sheikh Musley will re sing a Nasheed.

00:55:42--> 00:55:43

I think you can do it, Chase.

00:55:46--> 00:55:46

Okay. May Allah

00:55:47--> 00:55:47

reward you.

00:55:48--> 00:55:50

We are getting a lot of people coming

00:55:50--> 00:55:52

in and so we need to maximize the

00:55:52--> 00:55:54

space. So I'm going to ask all of

00:55:54--> 00:55:57

the brothers and sisters to stand up and

00:55:57--> 00:55:58

to make lines

00:55:58--> 00:56:00

so that we can be prepared for the

00:56:00--> 00:56:01

prayer, inshallah.

00:56:01--> 00:56:02

We're gonna move this down.

00:56:03--> 00:56:03

And,

00:56:04--> 00:56:06

all of the brothers, please come forward.

00:56:06--> 00:56:08

Sisters, please ensure that you are sitting close

00:56:08--> 00:56:09

together

00:56:09--> 00:56:10

and brothers also,

00:56:11--> 00:56:13

so that we can optimize this space inshallah.

00:56:14--> 00:56:15

Someone can give me a hand to move

00:56:15--> 00:56:18

this out of the way, Insha Allah. Thank

00:56:18--> 00:56:19

you.

00:56:19--> 00:56:21

Brothers, please come up. Fill the fill the

00:56:21--> 00:56:22

spaces.

00:56:23--> 00:56:25

If there's a space in front of you,

00:56:25--> 00:56:28

make sure that it's full and stand close

00:56:28--> 00:56:30

to each other. It's as if we are

00:56:30--> 00:56:32

going to pray soon, Insha'Allah. So,

00:56:33--> 00:56:35

we have space here. Please come on up.

00:56:35--> 00:56:37

We don't need this space right now.

00:56:42--> 00:56:44

Yeah. Not all of it. Just, just one

00:56:44--> 00:56:45

for the sheikh.

00:56:48--> 00:56:50

Okay brothers, if you are good in your

00:56:50--> 00:56:51

lines you can sit down

00:56:52--> 00:56:54

and Insha'Allah we will continue with the program.

00:57:00--> 00:57:03

So once again, on behalf of the Islamic

00:57:03--> 00:57:04

Institute of Toronto, we would like to thank

00:57:04--> 00:57:05

all of you,

00:57:06--> 00:57:08

for your great support. Last night was amazing.

00:57:10--> 00:57:13

The entire building was full, and it was

00:57:13--> 00:57:13

quite electrifying.

00:57:14--> 00:57:16

So may Allah reward you.

00:57:16--> 00:57:18

If you were not able to give a

00:57:18--> 00:57:19

donation last night,

00:57:20--> 00:57:23

please, consider giving a donation now, Insha'Allah.

00:57:24--> 00:57:25

Ramadan is coming to an end,

00:57:26--> 00:57:28

and so, this is the time of blessings.

00:57:29--> 00:57:30

This is the time of great reward,

00:57:31--> 00:57:33

and as we said last night,

00:57:33--> 00:57:34

sadaqah

00:57:34--> 00:57:36

does not decrease your wealth.

00:57:37--> 00:57:38

Believe in it. Sadaqah

00:57:39--> 00:57:41

will never decrease your wealth. This is the

00:57:41--> 00:57:43

promise of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:57:44--> 00:57:44

and his messenger,

00:57:45--> 00:57:47

and we believe in his promise.

00:57:47--> 00:57:48

So give

00:57:48--> 00:57:50

as much as you can. We wanna reach

00:57:50--> 00:57:53

our goal. I think we're close to about

00:57:53--> 00:57:54

220 or so.

00:57:55--> 00:57:57

So we do have a ways to go

00:57:58--> 00:57:59

and I'm hoping inshallah that by the end

00:57:59--> 00:58:00

of Ramadan,

00:58:01--> 00:58:03

we will be able to reach our goal.

00:58:05--> 00:58:06

A few announcements,

00:58:07--> 00:58:08

and for those of you who are coming

00:58:08--> 00:58:10

in now, please find a seat as close

00:58:10--> 00:58:11

as possible

00:58:11--> 00:58:12

to the front,

00:58:13--> 00:58:15

so that we can maximize the space.

00:58:15--> 00:58:18

So just a few quick announcements before,

00:58:18--> 00:58:19

we continue.

00:58:20--> 00:58:21

Insha'Allah,

00:58:21--> 00:58:22

on Monday

00:58:23--> 00:58:26

on Monday, we have the solar eclipse

00:58:26--> 00:58:28

and we will be doing Salat Al Khusuf.

00:58:29--> 00:58:31

That is the the prayer for the eclipse

00:58:31--> 00:58:32

of the sun.

00:58:33--> 00:58:35

This prayer will happen on Monday at 2

00:58:35--> 00:58:36

PM.

00:58:38--> 00:58:41

This prayer will happen on Monday at 2

00:58:41--> 00:58:42

pm, insha'Allah,

00:58:42--> 00:58:44

and you're all welcome, you're all encouraged to

00:58:44--> 00:58:47

come here on Monday. Once again, we still

00:58:47--> 00:58:49

have a lot of spaces in between.

00:58:49--> 00:58:51

So brothers, if you find a space in

00:58:51--> 00:58:54

front of you, please move up and sit

00:58:54--> 00:58:55

close together

00:58:55--> 00:58:57

because we have to accommodate everyone.

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

If there's a space in front of you,

00:59:00--> 00:59:02

yes, please, please fill it up insha Allah.

00:59:03--> 00:59:04

If there's a place at the side of

00:59:04--> 00:59:07

you, just look back and ask the brother

00:59:07--> 00:59:08

to come up.

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

Okay?

00:59:10--> 00:59:10

Insha'Allah,

00:59:11--> 00:59:12

when we sit too close together,

00:59:13--> 00:59:15

we feel the brotherhood and the love. So

00:59:15--> 00:59:15

please

00:59:16--> 00:59:17

sit close together,

00:59:17--> 00:59:19

to each other, insha'Allah.

00:59:21--> 00:59:24

So on Monday, we have salatul Khuzuf at

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

2 PM.

00:59:25--> 00:59:27

So please come on out with your families

00:59:28--> 00:59:30

and help us to revive the sunnah.

00:59:31--> 00:59:31

Also,

00:59:32--> 00:59:33

inshallah, we will be celebrating

00:59:34--> 00:59:35

Eid on Wednesday

00:59:35--> 00:59:36

at 9 AM.

00:59:37--> 00:59:39

Wednesday at 9 AM, and we have 2

00:59:39--> 00:59:40

locations.

00:59:40--> 00:59:43

1 here at the Islamic Institute of Toronto,

00:59:44--> 00:59:45

and the other at Scarborough

00:59:46--> 00:59:47

Convention Centre

00:59:47--> 00:59:50

right across, right beside IIT.

00:59:50--> 00:59:53

The katib here at IIT will be Sheikh

00:59:53--> 00:59:54

Ahmed Khuti,

00:59:55--> 00:59:56

and the khatib at Scarborough,

00:59:57--> 00:59:58

Civic Scarborough,

00:59:58--> 01:00:01

Convention Center will be doctor Abdullah Hakim Quick.

01:00:02--> 01:00:03

So choose your location,

01:00:04--> 01:00:05

come early,

01:00:06--> 01:00:06

find a parking,

01:00:07--> 01:00:10

in in in the parking lot. If you

01:00:10--> 01:00:12

don't have a parking there, there is parking

01:00:12--> 01:00:15

available on Nielsen Road. Please don't block the

01:00:15--> 01:00:16

driveways of other people.

01:00:17--> 01:00:20

You don't like someone to block your driveway

01:00:20--> 01:00:20

at your home.

01:00:21--> 01:00:24

Right? So don't block someone else's driveway. It

01:00:24--> 01:00:27

happened last night with the industrial building outside.

01:00:28--> 01:00:29

The truck could not enter

01:00:29--> 01:00:32

and had to hold up traffic for 45

01:00:32--> 01:00:32

minutes.

01:00:33--> 01:00:35

This is not not good on our part.

01:00:35--> 01:00:37

So please don't block a driveway.

01:00:38--> 01:00:40

Don't park near to a driveway.

01:00:40--> 01:00:42

Ensure that the truck can get in.

01:00:42--> 01:00:44

There is parking on Finch Dean at the

01:00:44--> 01:00:47

back here going to the convention center,

01:00:47--> 01:00:50

and there's parking at Torham Place,

01:00:50--> 01:00:53

and you can access the convention center

01:00:53--> 01:00:56

from Finch Dean off of Finch Avenue.

01:00:57--> 01:00:59

So we hope to see everyone.

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

Bring your prayer rug

01:01:01--> 01:01:03

and a bag for your shoe.

01:01:04--> 01:01:04

Perform,

01:01:05--> 01:01:06

the takbirat

01:01:06--> 01:01:09

on your way and pay your zakatul fitter

01:01:09--> 01:01:10

well in advance

01:01:10--> 01:01:11

of, salatulayid,

01:01:12--> 01:01:12

Insha'Allah.

01:01:13--> 01:01:14

All of the details will be on our

01:01:14--> 01:01:15

website,

01:01:15--> 01:01:17

on our Facebook page, and Instagram,

01:01:18--> 01:01:20

and please share them with others, Insha'Allah.

01:01:23--> 01:01:25

As as we said before, we have, some

01:01:25--> 01:01:28

of our Quran who are here. We have

01:01:28--> 01:01:30

about 10 minutes. So I am going to

01:01:30--> 01:01:31

ask Hari.

01:01:34--> 01:01:35

Yeah. Okay. Abdul Fatah is not here? No.

01:01:35--> 01:01:38

Yep. Ask let him know. Yes. I'm going

01:01:38--> 01:01:40

to ask, Hatim, Insha'Allah.

01:01:41--> 01:01:42

We don't see him often,

01:01:42--> 01:01:43

but,

01:01:43--> 01:01:45

he will be reciting for us for 5

01:01:45--> 01:01:46

Bismillahirwahlanirwahim.

01:01:45--> 01:01:46

Bismillahirwahlanirwahim.
