Baba, Marana subhanho wa Taala Phaeton z. Yeah, you Hello, Xena M and topple la helppo to a party, wallet mo tuna Illa wa and to Muslim moon some very, my brothers and sisters. Here we are.
We are only moments away from concluding what perhaps could be for all of us or many of us, the most special time of the year, a time of the year where it's very unique for each and every one of us. We experienced the month of Ramadan very differently from person to person. Our goals are the same. We want to achieve telkwa as Allah azza wa jal tells us in the quarter end, you fast and it was prescribed to you so that you can attain some level of consciousness, protection and taqwa of Allah azza wa jal, some of us will achieve that. Others may not others will still have to continue the journey. Others will still have to continue the struggle from within. But there is a category of
people my brothers and sisters that I want to bring your attention to today. This group of people they're not only found in the month of Ramadan, but all throughout the year you might you yourself might come and meet others, or people who simply don't want the reminder of Allah subhanho wa Taala they refuse Allah's remembrance and Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke about the consequence of somebody there's a difference if you forget to Allah that's one thing. But the consequence for someone who refuses to hear a loss remember it's they skipped all we intentionally because they don't think it's important. Why should I go there? I haven't eaten all day then I'm going to go pray for an hour or
more. So forget thought all week. They refuse that kind of remembrance and listen to what Allah azza wa jal tells us in Surah Taha, Allah azza wa jal, he tells us women out of the victory for inilah humare shirt and banca when I show who we own multi Amati erema here's the first problem. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that the one who refuses his remembrance, Allah azza wa jal will cause that person to live a life that is restricted and difficult. banca is a term that's used to describe somebody who is never happy. They're a grouch. And the way they deal with their problems each and every day, is very unusual. These are the kinds of people that when they're having a miserable day,
they'll go into their car and they're blasting music, they'll want to unwind because they feel trapped. So they'll probably go and do something that they shouldn't be doing. They'll probably unwind from all of their responsibilities, sit in front of a computer and click those websites, they shouldn't be clicking on the way that they deal with their issues as they feel very strained and restricted. They can't find the beauty that sapan Allah, Allah blessed me with children, whether it be one or many kids, but they're all a problem for me. I can't see happiness in any of them alone, as the widow says in the corner and the when you look at your wife, and when you look at your
children, one of the doors you make to Allah Latina Yoku Nora Bana habla de Minas wodgina was the Maria Tina kurata Aryan. One of the things that you hope for when you look at your family is that when you see them, your move to tears of joy and happiness, hold on to is there the coolness of your eyes. But if you're far away from Allah's remembrance, or you don't see that that is important, each and every day, you give it a schedule or a time and place. Allah says here's the first consequence your life is going to be miserable. It doesn't matter how much total we are sold or what you pray. The irony behind that is for those of us who don't understand the Arabic language, you'll be praised
Sala but you're not experiencing the sweetness of the prayer that you hope for. So how would you do you have to somehow figure out a way, as part of your journey learning this language, until you get there that you've learned Arabic, you have to somehow compensate for what you're losing in Salah. So you might be praying behind the Imam and the Imam is crying, the person beside you is crying, and you want the same feeling. But you simply don't know the language or you're still in the process of learning, then what you have to do is you have to compensate that loss. And the easiest way to do this is you got to keep a low with you. Hmm, point wherever you are. You have to keep alive. So a
job when you're walking out of this building, when you're in your cars when you're at home when you're in school. Now, what are we talking about? What do we refer to when we say you must keep Allah with you?
I want to bring your attention to another surah.
This surah is phenomenal to me. Especially its conclusion. The conclusion of this surah teaches you and I had to train our hearts and our minds to constantly think of Allah regardless of your knowledge, regardless of your background. Whether you are a scholar whether you are the least practicing Muslim, it doesn't matter. These verses will work for you. Listen to the conclusion of Seurat la muran Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in a fee hoppy summer what you will hold off de la fille layli one our
liberal album who is Al Bab Allah Zina is Corona la PML wok will Rue de la la juubi him with a Corona for help is somewhat he will have a lot of Bana mahalo tienen subhana wa Pina urban Now listen to the set of verses here they are absolutely beautiful. These verses if you haven't studied them already, they will change your life. Allah subhanho wa Taala says indeed within the heavens and the earth and everything in between them, there are a yet
matching telling. Imagine telling somebody who refuses to be reminded or they don't take reminders of a law seriously. Imagine if you were standing outside in the parking lot with them. And you said to this brother or sister, look at the sky some Hana Look how beautiful it is. Look, look at the clouds. Look at the grass into trees. Look how beautiful Allah subhanho wa Taala is creation It is for this person, they would look at that and you know what they might be thinking? What's your point?
Okay, so the sky is blue. So what they don't get the message as opposed to somebody who is constantly remembering Allah, you know what they will see. They will look at the sky and the trees and the grass and they will say Mashallah, that's incredible Subhana Allah, they will start praising Allah for things that they encounter every single day. Why does this happen? The answer.
This verse concluded by addressing a group of people called Al Bab Al Bab comes from the word lucban lucban Bhima Anna or Rajan bachlin Sala hin lucban is referring to somebody who has a clear and sound mind. Now I want you to test yourself. We just went through about 28 days or 27 days or 29 days or 10 days. You decide where was your peak in the month of Ramadan. But we are in this madrasa this school right now, where it was three semesters long. The first semester started for 10 days. That was our orientation and adjustment phase of Ramadan. Now this program that we're all involved in, this is a program that you will get a certificate or a degree in taqwa. And your professor and
your teacher is Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you already have Taqwa, think of this month or this course or this program as an upgrade to your oil. So here you are, you finished the first 10 days what he learned him. For most people the peak of Ramadan is the second semester or the second 10 days of Ramadan. This is when they are at their peak, they have adjusted their schedules, they're accustomed to the fast and they're in a nice routine. Now we're in the last semester, which is just about to conclude. This is where if you are a student in school, what are you thinking about when you're in your last semester, you're thinking about how am I going to get a job? What am I going to
do next? Do I want to take another course do I want to improve myself?
skills, you start thinking practically what your plans are as you move out of that program? Well, my brothers and sisters, all of us here have to be on the same page right now, if we're not on the same page, we at least have to be on the same page with one thing. And that is, we all have to train our hearts and our minds to think about Allah. How do you do that?
Be amongst people who are from the verb.
The Al Bab are people that have a clear and sound mind. Their brains aren't filled with junk, or useless information. Their brains aren't filled with like music, backbiting, gossiping, lying, wasteful talk, none of that stuff is there. They sift all of that garbage out, so that when useful information comes to them, they can appreciate it. So the first thing you can test yourself right now is when you hear a reminder at whatever scale that reminder is given to you. How do you welcome that reminder in your heart, in your mind? How are you moved by that reminder? Are you somebody that actually listens to this person who's talking to you regardless who they are, what their background
is, as long as they're telling you something beautiful about your religion? Do you find yourself that you're appreciating it? Or do you find yourself saying, When is this guy going to finish? When is he going to stop talking? This is not my favorite speaker. I don't want to listen to him. If you find yourself thinking like that, there's a big problem. There's a massive bankruptcy with your Ramadan.
You haven't experienced what you're supposed to have experienced at this point. But there's still time. Ramadan is not over. Allah subhanho wa Taala continues in the same conclusion of sudut and you're a moron. He tells you how to do this spiritual cleansing Allah the name of the Quran, Allah PM, they are the ones that remember a lot while standing while koruba while sitting, why did judo beat him? And once they are on their side? Why don't you help us somehow What do you want out of they are constantly thinking about the heavens and the earth. This is quarter ends way of teaching you and I, whenever you see verses that say, we are constantly in the state of reflection, we're
constantly thinking and pondering about the heavens and the earth. This is poor man's way of training you the student and the reader of this book.
You have to have Allah with you everywhere you go. Wherever you are on earth, and even in the effort or even in the effort, you're still remembering Allah. How do you achieve this, my brothers and sisters, you have to get useless information out of your hearts and out of your minds in order for useful information to resonate with you to remain with you otherwise, you know what happens? this one a month on For some
it's just another month.
I have met some brothers and sisters this month, who have never prayed a total week in their entire life. And they didn't start this month either. And you know the irony behind that I met them in a Masjid. That's the irony. But they just can't seem to gather themselves to push themselves that extra mile they can do it. So they remain with the basics. They just pray their five solo at no sun, no prayers, nothing. They'll fast but they are also counting every hour of God of Ramadan. They can't wait for this month to finish. You know the setup Rahmatullah Hurlingham for about six months after Ramadan, they're in tears, six months, they're in tears, because they can't believe that month
is actually gone. And then six months before the next Ramadan, they're also in tears, but this time it's tears of joy, because they can't wait for Ramadan to be welcomed. So in essence, these people are thinking about Ramadan, all throughout the year. May Allah subhanho wa Taala increase us in our faith in our Amen. Allahumma Ameen.
Now having said that,
there's a third set of verses that I want to share with you and then I'm going to put all of this together and explain to you why I have chosen this topic. The third verse that I want to share with you, I want to bring your attention now to suit and hasha
for those of you who are not familiar with sorta tell hasher
Always remember this about this particular surah number one. This surah deals with an audience that's having trouble remembering Allah. This is a special group. This is a particular group of people that no matter how much they try, they just can't seem to keep Allah subhanho wa Taala with them. They can't seem to remember him each and every time that they want to remember him. They're too distracted. They're filled with so many responsibilities. So little hasher helps to get through that problem. And listen to how it does it. Sort that hash of stuff started off with subvalvular they use to make this be the verb that's the sort of begins with it's in past tense. They used to do
this but something happened to them and they forgot, or they just ignored Allah subhanho wa Taala but you know, here's the second beautiful thing about the suta suta. Tell hasher is also the surah that has the most Names of Allah mentioned in one surah so it started off talking about people who forget Allah. And then it concluded by mentioning the most names and attributes of Allah in one Sora you all know the sutra you all hear the verses Hola. Hola de la isla in the who are the Monterey Bay was Shahada to Rama and Rahim and it continues until the end of the sutra. This is one of the most beautiful sutras that he memes love to recite in their sadhana. But what I want to bring your
attention to is this particular verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us
what at the Kunal Kela Dena sola for answer home and foster home Ola ecoman fasea. Poland. And you know, one of the nice things about today's Kobe is I see a lot of young people here. So for the adults in the mothers and fathers, if you allow me to Can I address them directly for at least a minute or two, for the young brothers and sisters that are here, the students, not just the students of the Academy, all the students here regardless of your level of study, this area needs to be on the screensaver of your cell phones and on your iPads. This area parents, you need to put this on the wall in their bedroom. So they see this verse every single day that they wake up. Allah says in
this in this particular surah Don't be of the people who forget a lot, because as a consequence, a lot caused them to forget themselves. Ola, ecomo facetune. These are the people that are inherently corrupt. You might be asking yourself, what does it mean to forget yourself? Well, for a lot of youngsters, but some adults are guilty of this too. A lot of young people this is how their life looks like they wake up.
The first thing they do is they get on Snapchat or Facebook or Instagram and get their nightly update. Then they might go, you know, brush their teeth, have their breakfast, get dressed for school or work. Then if you don't bug them, and you don't remind him Hey, you didn't pray fudger like, Okay, I gotta go pray the fetcher. And hopefully inshallah, when you're not supervising and monitoring them, you're hoping that they actually prayed fudger then they get to school, and you're hoping that they're still the same daughter and the same son you had at home, when they're at school, then they come home, they eat, they chill, they relax, they go to sleep, they do it all over
again the next day. Then Fridays come, Fridays come about? All they're thinking about is TGI F. Thank God, it's Friday. And then thinking about
let me call up some of my boys. Let me call up some of the girls. Let's go do something. Let's relax. Let's go watch a movie. And this is why in the entertainment world, do you notice that all the new movies are released on a Friday, because this is the way to capture this audience. So you can just continue wasting your weekend and just fill yourself with this stuff. So they're thinking about Okay, let's do something. Let's go out let's play video games. Let's do anything that isn't informative or beneficial. And then Monday comes along. And then so many of them do this all over again. You know what the problem with this problem with this is?
Then you die.
That becomes their whole life. Your whole life was just about chillin. And then you leave this world.
One of the ways Allah subhana wa Taala helps us revive and rethink and remember the true us.
You listen to the verse.
Listen, don't be of the people who forgot Allah, you forget Allah guess what he's gonna do? He'll cause you to forget yourself. So you wake up like a zombie. And you just go through a story.
schedule, then you leave this world. You'll hear about the world and how on the Day of Judgment, the earth will crumble.
This entire earth will crumble to dust. But for some young people, when they hear that they say, Oh, I saw the movie 2012 so what's the big deal? That compared to something else, and you're thinking to yourself, you're missing the point. This is what happens when the mind is cluttered with useless information. There is no room for an area to sit and resonate. And if it does, it's only there for Ramadan. It's only there for Joomla it's only there for one sada it's only there for the lecture. It's only there when that guy lectures but many other lectures I can't listen to them. It's only there when I'm when I want it to be there and then it disappears. May Allah subhanahu wa taala
cleanse our hearts, may Allah azza wa jal cleanse our minds May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept from us our cm, yo b we plead to you in these last few moments of Ramadan, or Allah except from us our cm, except from us, our PM, increase us in knowledge and event and strength era Belladonna mean we are all are live right now in 2017. Because Allah sees that every single one of us have what it takes to carry the message of the Quran. Because if you didn't have what it takes, you would have been in a another generation, you would have been in a generation where if you heard the word Xena, or you heard the word murder, you would be wondering why would anybody do such a thing? But Allah
put you here in the midst of Islamophobia, racism, discrimination, and I'm going to talk to you a little bit about that in the second part of the hookah. We all have what it takes to be great people. We all have what it takes to improve and become better people and better Muslims. So May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us with His mercy that we continue to increase ourselves.

Allah and handily lower Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah vida le he was happy he woman Wilder and barbaric.
You know, it's not every week that you get to see an audience to this magnitude. And so coming back to a lot of the young people who we also don't always have an opportunity to speak to,
you know, lots of youngsters have this mentality, this attitude that they have their whole life ahead of them, that they can just chill and mess it all up now, but later on, they'll fix things. For our young brothers and sisters, listen to this. And just remember, you remember a few days ago what happened to system nebra
system in the United States in Virginia, she went for tahajjud she wasn't chilling and just doing whatever she went for a pm.
She came out of the masjid after 200 she was with 14 or 15 of her friends. She wasn't at the wrong place at the wrong time. Allah selected her.
And she went through a rigorous torture.
And as a result of the at 17 years old, her life was done.
Allah subhanho wa Taala grant her genital Feder doses other young people you don't have a lot of time.
You don't know if you're gonna go to school and come back and see your mother and father that you probably haven't spoke to for the last three days. You know, you don't have time system nebra. And many like her are an example that you go to a cemetery you'll see people that were born 2015 and die 2016. And the reason why I'm telling you this is there is no one else except you, the young people to be standing here one day, and to continue to carry the torch of this religion, you will have to continue to develop some self respect and dignity within yourself. You have to look at the companionship and friends you chose to associate with. And if these people are actually helping you
or they're destroying you, and they're making you waste your life and waste your time they're making you hate your family because your dad won't buy you the iPad you've been asking for. Your mom won't buy you the pair of Jordans you've been begging for. So your friends tell you You know what? Your parents are messed up, bro. Don't even listen. Don't even do what they want you to do. If you have companions like this, we're running out of time. Get them out of your life.
So that you start building some sort of self worth, you start instilling the confidence that all the mothers and the fathers here are trying their very best to give you. And so that if one of us, our cuddle is going to be written like sister number of
male allies, so it'll help Have mercy on her. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for her family. You know, we're just like a day or two away from aid. It's supposed to be a time of joy. You know, you're shopping for gifts, you're getting ready for the happiest day of the year. And this family is grieving. This family is in tears. I don't know what the thing. And I don't know, I'm a father myself. And I can't imagine if that was my daughter, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for them. And for our young people, we're lucky I think I speak for all of the mothers and the fathers when I say, we love you, and we want the best for you. That's why sometimes we have to be a
little bit hard on it's just because in our hearts, there's nothing that brings us greater joy than to see you doing the right thing. And so male allies so we'll protect our sons and our daughters, male allies, so we'll protect our mothers and the fathers that are here to hear a man whom well Am I right and those who have passed away May Allah azza wa jal reunite us with our mothers and our fathers and genital fitter. dosen Allah Allahu them, I mean, these are the words that I leave you with my brothers and sisters, take it for what it is, it's food for thought reflect on it, and reflect on it in a way that you can improve yourself. I need it and you need it. And so May Allah
azza wa jal give us the reminder that we all need. May Allah azza wa jal continue to bless this oma and accept the goodness and forgive us of our shortcomings along mean, we send peace and blessings to our Rasul Salatu was Salam who la Cana Marana subhana wa tada Phaeton xili in the LA Houma la ecotel who you saloon Ireland ob Yeah, you're Latina ermanno solo our levy was suddenly more Taslima Allahumma salli. ala Muhammad Ali Mohammed came so late Allah Ibrahim Allah earlier Brahimi in nikka homido Majeed along Moffitt and Massimino well Muslim at all meaning you know when Nina, Allah here in Houma mud in the Caribbean semi on Mooji Buddha with Allahumma Indian Ennis local Jenna amaco
