It took Allah haka to party he wala termo tuna Illa one to mostly mourn thought that Amma buried my brothers and sisters, on this blessed day of this blessing our of human
Jumar let us begin by asking Allah subhanho wa Taala to shower his Rama and his forgiveness and His pible and acceptance on each and every one of us. Each and every one of us here today. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us of our shortcomings, our mistakes Allah whom I mean, you will bob my short reminder for you today takes us back to an important subject that is not really addressed as often as it should. We talk about the importance of the code of the importance of the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala Island. We talk about the blessings of vicar, but we rarely we talk about the impact or the effects of Vicuna in our lives. When you have the vicar of Allah, the remembrance
of Allah in your life.
And it's constant, you're comfortable where you are in terms of your remembrance, so you know all of the devices that you should know and you're constantly learning more when you pray before you pray. And after you pray, you say your tests B and your F code. So you have a good routine. You recite your poor and you make your dua you have all of this other account of Allah subhanho wa taala.
Except there's one problem. There's one problem
when Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses to
So your frustration is tested, your patience is tested, your anger is tested, you get into an argument. You want to say, you want to react.
And unfortunately, law lots of Muslims will say, will react. And we all know that's not appropriate for you and I, as people have killed people who live and remember and have that relationship with Allah subhanho wa taala. So how does the vicar of Allah impact you? How does it control you, especially when you need it the most. When you're being tested, somebody cuts you off while you're driving. It's very easy to just react, maybe do the same thing back, but something has to hold you back. Something keeps you under control.
How does the vicar of Allah do that? And so brothers and sisters, I want to bring your attention to a surah of the Quran so little hasher
many of us who are familiar with the surah you know that SUTA hasher is not only a Medini Surah but this chapter of the Quran has one very special unique aspect to it and that is, it is the one surah that has the most Names of Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in one Surah Surah Al hasha has the most Names of Allah mentioned in one chapter of the Quran. If you're not familiar with the surah you probably are familiar with these yet who Allah who led the La ilaha illa who those are yet those are yet that Imams love to recite because why they are filled with Allah's names and Allah's attributes. Now, the second thing about the surah
the surah addresses an audience that forgot to Allah or have trouble remembering him. Let me say that again, this surah Now the whole Quran does this. But this surah concentrates on people who have an exceptional difficulty and struggle to remember Allah, especially when they needed the most. So that happens to all of us. Especially when you need Allah the most you have to dig real deep in here to remind yourself I'm Muslim, I can't talk this way. I can't act this way. I want to say I want to react but I hold myself back. So if you shift your attention to the end of the surah Allah starts talking about how to deal with this problem. So here's the next point.
When it comes to how Muslims practice their religion, they usually fall into two extreme categories and one of them is what I call the ultra conservative group. This is the group that Masha Allah Tabata Cola, they are coming to the massager they are in Sofia, our their reading poor and they've gone for her drama, Ramadan. tarawih all the works, but you can't trust the brother. You can do business with him,
test his anger and see what happens. See when he or she loses their patience. See how they act when they're in an argument. See how they stand up in line for food. See how they go out and leave parking lots on Jomar day how they obey the laws on the street. The signs all of these little things that we often take for granted see that part of it so they are great Muslims Masha Allah struggling to just be a good person. So these a yet listen to them. Allah subhanho wa Taala first and foremost begins and concludes the surah by giving his parting message This is his farewell message of Sudha to hash out yeah, you holla Dina Amen. Taco love will tell the Roanoke Zuma Kaduna academically
Huddinge WhatsApp Allah, then Allah concludes in the Lucha Libre you don't be alone. We all know these yet. So here's your first step to making the remembrance of Allah work for you especially when you need it the most. Number one
have Taqwa of Allah, which we have Alhamdulillah while downloading of sunnah could definitely hard look in the mirror and say Subhana Allah if today is my last Jumar if I just pray my last Juma today, am I ready to meet Allah and say, Oh Allah, here's my 40 years my 50 years my 10 years, here's my 60 my 70 years you gave me Oh Allah, I tried my best. If you're comfortable to say that that's one thing, but the reality is that
Most of us need more time.
So when you develop that sense of urgency each and every day, and you live as though Subhanallah today could be my last day, believe me, in sha Allah, when you need your E man to control you to keep you calm, to keep you civilized, it will come into play B's nila, it will work for you be Nila. Because you will not take the most valuable asset for granted time you will value it and you will say to yourself, my frustration is tested.
Let me at least react but react in a civilized calm manner. Nobody is saying don't do anything. Nobody is saying go out there and just consume and take abuse. Just listen to all the pain and absorb it and be quiet. Nobody is saying that because part of our as soon as we can react but we have a methodology how we do that. We can just do it the way that we want. So this one and you begins to sort of lay the laws and give us some sense of perspective and direction. Here's number two.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says something really remarkable will lie. This area here is truly remarkable. Well Aleta Kuhn and Ken Levine and Ursula for unser home and foster home, Willa eco human fasciae Cohen, just think about this I am. Don't be of the people who forget to Allah. I know some of the MF CEO remember to be and others they say this he is referring to a number of groups. Some of the MSA is referring to the moon Afia cone of Medina, others saying it's referring to liars and dishonest people in general. But the point is, they are fasciae porn. These are people who are inherently corrupt. They have a bankruptcy in here and it starts to manifest in their action. How
did they get to that stage?
Allah subhanho wa Taala says don't be of the people who forget to Allah.
Because when they forgot to Allah, as a consequence, Allah made them forget themselves.
You know what that looks like?
Forgetting Allah doesn't mean that you forget who you are as a Muslim. You forget your religion, you forget that Allah exists. No.
Forgetting Allah in this area, means that they don't have that steady connection with Allah subhanaw taala. They know he's there. But they don't have that steady connection. They're praying but not really. They're reading and making their door up but their heart is still sleeping, that kind of connection. This group Allah says, You don't know who Allah is you. So as a result, Allah forgot you. Allah abandoned you, Allah
but he could survive emotionally and mentally. And psychologically, if you don't have a connection with your Creator, this world will consume you. The problems and distress of this world will overwhelm you. It'll drive you crazy. But when you have a lot in your life, when you have Allah's Remember, it's in your life. There's nothing in this world except that ALLAH gives you some sense of clarity. You can understand how to handle the worst of the worst. That's why you probably see from time to time
that I mean, this happens a lot where I come from in Toronto, but I'm sure it happens. Every now and then here. You know, there was a report of a young Muslim man who was a cab driver, and a lady he picked up she left her purse in the car. There was 10,000 Canadian dollars cash in her purse, the Muslim Brothers when he saw that he found her ID he called her he returned, he drove to her house and gave her the person her hand. She was so pleased by that. She offered him some of it. He said No, it's my duty as a Muslim. Before you know it, he's on every channel front page of every newspaper, every news outlet, because why Subhan Allah He did the right thing.
He did what he was supposed to do.
You're supposed to give back something that doesn't belong to you. And he says this on on, you know, the news reporters. It wasn't mine. I have to return it.
That's what happens in the world that we live in. When your Eman steps in. And it forces you and it encourages you and it pushes you to stay on the right path when
The rest of the world is going this way, you're still going to be civilized, you're still going to treat people with respect. When you see and hear about racism, you're going to stand up at workplace or at school or whatever and be like, Dude, that's wrong. You can't talk to you can't treat people like that just because of their skin color, just because of their background, just because of their culture. You start to develop that and it remains with you. That's when you know the count on the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala is not just restricted in the masjid, it's not just restricted in poor and time. It's not just something you feel in sujood
you feel it every day everywhere at every moment, may Allah subhanaw taala count all of us from amongst them. We will conclude with one more point in sha Allah Huhtala with this beautiful area, because there's a hidden message in there that I really hope in sha Allah, it serves as a reminder for myself and all of us. And I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to uplift us continue to increase our E min. Continue to bring us closer to him because hamdulillah By Allah's grace, we are still here. The doors of Toba and Estefan are still open to us. So as long as we are alive and we are here we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bless our time and bless our efforts. Allahumma Amin al colonna tomorrow

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Allah who have total Salah women while married Walter Kunal Killa, Athena and Ursula
that unser home and fulsome, so don't be amongst those who forget Allah. Because as a consequence, Allah made them forget themselves. What does that mean? Does it mean that you wake up, you don't know who you are, it means that your life looks like this.
You wake up, brush your teeth, have breakfast, go to work, go to school, come home, relax, chill, go to bed. Do it again the next day, Friday comes along, you might go out you might show with some friends and family do something we can chill out for a bit Monday, same routine.
And that becomes your whole life and then you die.
And Allah is saying here when you forget yourself. You forgot the real you.
You forgot your purpose. You forgot why? You say subhanallah 33 times Alhamdulillah 33. You forgot what these things are supposed to ignite and keep lit spiritually in your heart. You forgot all of these things. This is what Allah talking to us. You didn't know how to use this anymore. It'd be it's not as meaningful as it used to be. So your whole life became this routine. Then you leave this world. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and uplift us. Allahumma Amin. Then Allah says Allah eco humulene Fassi Poon.
When you think that that's bad, then Allah says these are the people who are fast hippo and fast upon comes from fiscal and fiscal and literally means somebody that's inherently corrupt. And I want you to think of an example just to visually understand what FISP is. Imagine you have a fruit. And you leave it out for some time, after a week or two weeks, what happens to that fruit starts to get moldy, rotten, decayed.
And that's what happens to the first step. If they don't start addressing this problem. Their heart starts to develop this spiritual fungus and decay.
And you want to know how to test your heart and my heart to see if it's decayed spiritually. How does your heart to respond when it's being reminded about Allah and His messenger? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?
How does your heart feel when it's praying? How does your heart feel when it's reciting some portion? How does your heart feel when it's doing something that's directly connecting it to Allah subhanaw taala if that heart is on one side, where it's man, we can't wait for the Imam to finish his Salah is way too long. He said this, we can't wait for him to just go or is your heart even though I don't understand Arabic Subhan Allah and it's just beautiful to listen to Haoran even though I don't get to go to the masjid as often as I want the one time I do get to go there. I'm so happy to pray beside my fellow brother and sister and just being such that together. I just
appreciate my fellow Muslims. It where's your heart? That's Willa Iike holdfasts if you don't want to be or you don't want to have the kind of heart that when por en and Sunnah is trying to get in there. It can find a place because there's just too much decay. And the last and final point that I
leave you with insha Allah Who tarla
many of us know how Surah Al hasha began began sub battle Allah past tense they used to make to speak of Allah.
How does it end? You said beho
present tense. So something happened when they journeyed through Sunita hasha they started off that they use to remember and make us be have Allah. But as they journeyed through this surah and Subhan Allah Allah put most of his names in this one surah to reignite that connection. So they started connecting back with Allah just started reading more reflecting more understanding more taking the time to understand and reflect and all of that they started doing this more. And by the time they got to the end of the Surah You said big now to speak is reignited. Our Prophet alayhi salatu salam told us that the croaking of the frog is it's tisby
in another area
in Surah Al Hajj Allah tells us that the sun makes us be the moon takes test be the trees make test be the mountains make test be all of these creations of Allah the animals have their own way of tests beer.
So if all of this creation of Allah is doing it consistently, then the question that I leave you with is
what happened to you and me?
Why is there that struggle from time to time?
This poor en su little hasher Allah said it shook mountains. Though insulin a hurdle Quran Allah Jebin la Atia who Harsha matassa them in hatia. Tila, like you'll see this if you put this pour on on a mountain what happens to the mountain, it turns into Dustin it crumbles the mountain can't handle pour and but Allah put it in my heart and in your heart. We're not crumbling, Allah gave us the strength to carry this message. So you and I have been honored with that. And I pray that insha Allah Huhtala especially when you want to see the fruits and reap the fruits of all of your efforts, especially in the moments that you need it most. I pray that in sha Allah, the short reminder can
help us to have that help us to be reminded and help us to use these reminders, these as calendar these tisby and these are the bad debt, not just only when we're in that spiritual routine, but when we are in our daily routine. May Allah subhanaw taala bless our time, may Allah subhanaw taala honor us in this world in the Hereafter. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala always and forever can account us or count us from amongst the righteous in this world and in the Athleta Allahumma Amin we send peace and blessings to all Rasul Salah Torabi, wa salam, ala Kemet, Amana subhanho wa Taala Phaeton xili in Allah one Allah Iike tahu usaw Lunarlon NaVi Johan Latina ermine or solo early he was a limo,
