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

what will be the art in Bala Wakulla bright and Finnur

00:01:35 --> 00:01:59

brothers and sisters just as the Lavon was approaching. We kept on reminding ourselves the idea of the Quran. Yeah, you have Nadine cootie Valley CUCM will come I put them in a cupboard he can now unlock them to tap on that the objective of Ramadan is to attain and to create and develop taqwa in our life.

00:02:00 --> 00:02:09

The question is, what is the purpose of the day of reads? Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the same passage, he says what he took me

00:02:10 --> 00:02:11

Willie to capital Walla

00:02:13 --> 00:03:09

Walla school. When the day of Eid comes, hopefully you will reflect upon the past month Ramadan, you will reflect that Allah gave us some avant and it was truly a gift from Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah gave us the night of lethal powder, the United power were in one night we can do more than what any person would do in a three years. And for all these gifts, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I want you to be thankful to me. But as the sisters, one of the key things about our deen is that we show our gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala we begin our day by saying Alhamdulillah we begin our BI Alhamdulillah whenever we come across good news, we say and hamdulillah and whenever even when we

00:03:09 --> 00:03:53

come across even bad news, we say an hamdulillah why? Because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he tells us so beautifully the Hadith there are many may not mean in the Umrah, hula hula who hired when I used to there luckily I had an inner moment. It is no matter what situation I believe her finds themselves in. It is always beneficial to them. And when I say the Hadith from the salon, and when we hear the Hadith where the prophet says that when you come across good times, you show your graduate to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is good for us. But what about when we go through bad times, remind remember brothers and sisters, when we go through difficult times, it is not just

00:03:53 --> 00:04:41

difficult times that we are going through Allah is elevating our status. Allah is eliminating our sins. Allah is making our Astra the load of the Athonite easy for us by putting difficulties in our life. And I remind myself and you all that when we look at the teachings of the Quran, and the teachings of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we learned that those and beautiful is what Allah says, Now you can leave Allahu nevsun Illa Allah does not put upon a person something that is beyond their capacity. When we hear this hadith we only relate it to hardships. We only relate to difficulties that were going in our life, but brothers and sisters, this is not just

00:04:41 --> 00:04:59

related to difficulties. This is even related to our deen Allah subhanho wa Taala has certain expectations from us, and He wants us to do them. And if a person says that Islam is too difficult, brother Assam is too difficult. I cannot live Islam like this in America is

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

too difficult to practice Islam. We have to remind ourselves Nathan if Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah will not put upon us something that is beyond our capacity. When Allah subhanho wa Taala gave 50 prayers to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah in his infinite wisdom and his limitless knowledge. He knew that this Emma does not have the stamina to endure 50 prayers a day and eventually from 50 It came down to five can you possibly imagine if we had do 50 prayers, how difficult that will be? But Allah subhanho wa Taala he put enough that we can do and the reason I share this with with myself and with all of you is because we just went through Ramadan, we have

00:05:49 --> 00:06:36

shown Allah subhanho wa Taala the year Allah I do have the stamina. We used to come three o'clock in the morning 4pm We used to fast all day long. We used to worship Allah during the day during the night, we just stay away from the Haram we just stay away from those things that can displease Allah subhanho wa Taala and we will Hastening towards those things that can earn the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa taala. We were punished upon our five time daily prayers we have shown to Allah that we surely have the stamina. Now after Ramadan, Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to he wants he wants to see from all of us that who can maintain that stamina who can maintain that spirit of Ramadan,

00:06:36 --> 00:07:19

meaning that they are still connected to Allah, they still are reading Quran every single day, they're still making vicar every single day there is taking time over there taking time for their self reflection. They are doing something to attain Tekoa Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to see that from all of us brothers and sisters. And when you and I when we show this to Allah, when we say God, Allah, you gave me a gift. I'm going to show you what it means to be grateful to you, oh Allah. This is what Allah wants from us. Allah does not want things from us brothers and sisters, but Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to see our servitude. Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to see that we are truly

00:07:19 --> 00:07:29

dedicated to Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is one type of sugar. Another type of sugar is that we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for everything that we have.

00:07:31 --> 00:07:34

Whether we have or we don't have and 100 enough.

00:07:35 --> 00:08:21

Today our fridges are full of food. Yeah, we say we don't have anything to eat. We walk into our closets. Our causes are full of clothes are full of shoes. Yeah, we say we don't have anything to wear. And Hamdulillah we have a car outside our house. Yeah, we say we don't have anything to drive. We live in a beautiful home, a place where we can call home a place that we know that I night I can at least go there and I will be secured over there yet we are ungrateful to Allah that I don't have enough. I don't have a big enough house. Brothers and sisters, a lot of times we become ungrateful because we focus on what we don't have, rather than focusing on what we have. And when you and I

00:08:21 --> 00:08:36

when we focus on what we have, then we will be a much better servant to Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brothers and sisters. There is no one who can tell me that they went through more difficulties than was Rasul Allah who it was

00:08:37 --> 00:08:47

a man who lost six children of his own during his lifetime, now stepchildren, his own biological four children.

00:08:50 --> 00:09:03

Today, I know parents that years go by and they cannot overcome the death of even one child. Imagine Rasulullah sallallahu it was six children.

00:09:05 --> 00:09:38

Then not only that, his life before he became even before he came into this dunya Allah took his father, at the age of six over took his mother. At the age of eight, Allah took his loving grandfather. Think about a child. If I in You were to come across an eight year old child today, and we were told that this child does not have a mother. He doesn't have a child. He doesn't have a father and his grandfather who loved him so much. Even he has passed away. We'll learn we will have so much sympathy for that child. This is also Russell Lohani he was

00:09:39 --> 00:10:00

yeah, this was a long while he was some never was ungrateful to Allah subhana wa Tada. This is when we are thankful to Allah subhana wa to Allah. Allah says Allah in Chicago with him. That is either Nico. This idea instead of Ibrahim comes after the iron rod talks about the struggles and the challenges of Bonita saw Ian. Allah did not talk about his Yama.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:26

As he talked about the challenges and then he says, if you are thankful to Allah, Allah will increase your blessing. Meaning what that when we are going through good times, it is easy to be thankful to Allah but when you're going through difficult times, at that time if we can show that yet we are gratitude, we are grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala and there is gratitude in our life, that Allah will increase the blessings that He has given us. Today brothers and sisters, as I said,

00:10:27 --> 00:11:07

today, we are ungrateful about the things that we have. We look at everyone else what they have. I want to share with you a very beautiful hadith of as well so Allahu Allah, He will send them because in this hadith, the Prophet says, it tells us that if you have three things in your life, if you have three things in your life, is as if you have the entire donor Subhanallah he says, I think there was salam min us Bahaman poem, Amin and fees servi. Whoever approaches the morning or whoever spends the morning in the state that they are secure. They are secure with their property.

00:11:08 --> 00:11:12

More often feed yesterday and they are healthy in the body.

00:11:14 --> 00:11:55

And then he says in the router, yummy he and he has food for that day. You are secure today. Alhamdulillah. For majority of us, we can say that we are secure our brothers and sisters on other places of the world. Philistine Cydia, Burma, Kashmir and all these places where our Muslim brothers and sisters are going through difficulty in China, we know what's happening in China. These are people who don't live in peace, they're not living in security, we are living in security and hamdulillah for the most part, not only that, but for the most part we are healthy too. And not only that, but hamdullah for the most part, we have the food for that day, the Prophet saw some says

00:11:55 --> 00:12:32

fucka an MRP Zettler who dunya Subhan Allah the prophet has some says is as if he has been given the entire world. Today we complain about not having enough if we have these three things the problem someone says you and I we have enough, we should be happy and we should be grateful to Allah subhana wa Tala. So let this be a time for all of us to be grateful to Allah for everything he has given us. He has given us places to live, he has given us food to eat. He has given us parents for those parents who for those people whose parents have passed away, make dua for them. This is the best thing you can do. But everything around us, it is a blessing of us behind what the the more we are

00:12:32 --> 00:13:01

thankful to Allah the less it is ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he makes us amongst those who are Shikara We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he makes us amongst those who are thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala We ask Allah subhana wa Tada on the Day of Judgment, he raises us amongst those who are grateful and are thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala Barack Allahu Allah and I will consider them when I find out well you can read the with the will Hakeem and stuff for Rouhani welcome what he's saying this manifesto for you in order for him.

00:13:07 --> 00:13:44

Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu learn who want to start in and when I started when I was when I mean surely and phocoena when say yeah, Medina manga De La La Molina, Omani a little further had mentioned a little Allah Wa la sharika.

early Ibrahim in Nicomedia Majeed

00:13:48 --> 00:13:50

brothers and sisters the day of Eid

00:13:52 --> 00:14:33

the day of Eid is a day of happiness. I just have your water unmentioned that Windows was a lot of it was some came to Medina. He saw the people of Medina celebrating days he's asked what is these two days that you are celebrating the people of Medina to inform those who also Rwanda he was sending them that these are two days of festivities. So as I said, from this point going forward, from this point going forward, we are going to have two days in our Islamic calendar, April 5 on each other. And these are the two days of the Muslims celebration. Let's think Allah subhanho wa Taala and not only that, but this is the Day of Happiness, a day where we connect with our families.

00:14:33 --> 00:14:59

This is the day that we put aside our differences and we come together and we think Allah subhanaw taala the fact that we are here together with our kith and kin in our community members, we think we are thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for that we meet each other. We meet our family members, spend time quality time with your family today. Take your kids and buy them something. Buy them something the children please do not take advantage

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

not ask your parents to buy you a phone

00:15:04 --> 00:15:12

because the other day I mentioned this, and the child went to his father and says I want to follow the mom say you got to buy me something, I want a phone. I'm not telling you about your phone.

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

But spend some time with your children.

00:15:16 --> 00:15:44

Today we have so many people of our community, people who are divorced women who are widows, we have convert or reverse of the community. A lot of times they have no place to go on the day of Eid. They come for salad, they leave. They don't have any interaction with anyone. If you know them, please call them to your home. If you are going somewhere. If you have invited people to your home, do not forget these people of the community because in many cases they are neglected.

00:15:46 --> 00:16:14

I want to advise my brothers that please take some time out now in summer and spend some quality time with your family. My advice the sisters, that always make sure that you have an Islamic environment at your home, create the Islamic atmosphere at home because for the most part the children are spending time at home. If they are living in a Samak environment they will go up with some values. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran or the journal.

00:16:16 --> 00:16:31

This ayah does not mean that Allah Allah Allah does not mean that men are dominant over women, it means that men are protectors of women. So my advice to the brothers, elder brothers, parents, youngsters, brothers,

00:16:32 --> 00:16:33

protect your women folk.

00:16:35 --> 00:17:17

It is your job even for the youngster in the family, to look after his sister to protect his sister to protect the women folk. It is a responsibility of all the men in the house to look after and protect our women. Well law he a lot of times I get stories, people come into my office that they are either oppressed by their siblings, or they are oppressed by the men of their family will Allah He Allah is going to hold us accountable for this Sunday judgment. Show your love on the day every now and then. But going forward, show your love and finally I will say this, that if we want a peaceful life a life that you and I will all are chasing for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says the formula

00:17:17 --> 00:17:58

is simple, man I mean Assad, whoever does righteous deeds will who are not men men Dhaka in our own Salah who are more men and they are a true believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says fella no fee and no higher tempo. We will most certainly not just we will give him most certainly we will give him a life of peace. And if Allah promises a life of peace will lie there's no one who can give us a more peaceful life and Allah subhanho wa Taala I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to make our matters easy for us. I ask Allah subhana wa Tada they accept our So Young as well as to the $100 that he accepts our pm May Allah subhana wa Tada accept all of our dollars that we made in the month

00:17:58 --> 00:18:38

of Ramadan. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to make our family matters easy for us. Ask Allah subhana wa Tada to unite the hearts in our families. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us every good that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has ever asked for. We asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect us from every evil and harm that Muhammad Allah some has ever sought protection from. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for a Fussel Fatima a good ending. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us the companionship of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Day of Judgment. We asked Allah subhanaw taala that he makes us from amongst those who will enter into Jana without any

00:18:38 --> 00:19:15

accountability. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that all those who have been separated from their families, we ask Allah to unite them with their families, we ask Allah subhana wa Tada all those who are living in the midst of fitna and chaos. May Allah subhanho wa Taala has helped be with them. We ask Allah that all those who are hungry, may Allah feed them, we ask Allah all those who are thirsty, may Allah subhanaw taala provide them clean water to drink, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give us knowledge that is beneficial to us. We ask Allah to give us a man to give us the ability to do those actions that are mokopuna and accepted according to in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa

00:19:15 --> 00:19:51

Taala We ask Allah Allah Dwyers that we make, he accepts that we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he grants us the love of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we ask Allah subhana wa Taala for all the good in this dunya in the Buddha after one last thing I want to quickly remind myself and you all is an humbler. We have such a beautiful facility, we have a beautiful masjid, I want you all even on the day of leave, you want to show your gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala This is also one way of showing your gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is giving something for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, Subhan Allah Subhanallah quickly when I mentioned the

00:19:51 --> 00:20:00

other day, we had a fundraiser on the night of our Phantom and people were giving and I know that there are a lot of people who had the heart they had the desire that I

00:20:00 --> 00:20:41

I wish I had $10,000 sitting around. I wish I had 5000 hours sitting around and I will give the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala but I don't have that much what can I do? I want to quickly remind something so beautiful in our deen Wallahi Allah subhanho wa Taala brothers and sisters did not say that on the Day of Judgment he's going to count our our man he's on account our good deeds, he says he's going to weigh our good deeds. You know what this means. For one person there might be some people who are so well off that for them to give $10,000 Alhamdulillah it is not even a problem. But for someone to get even $10 a month, it is very difficult. And I tell you that for the person who

00:20:41 --> 00:21:18

has give so much nothing taking away from them. But when a person gives so easily and they have so much and they give versus a person who has so much difficulty they have so much financial tightness in their life and then they give something for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is more deer in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala because you are making a greatest sacrifice on your way out, stop by the office, fill out a pledge card that every month you will give something for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala this something that Allah has given us so much, give something for the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala will you be talking about we are part of a beautiful community we also

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

are founding members, we are part of a view of a beautiful masjid, so many services and so forth that will allow you all the services they cost money. We provide services for brothers and sisters young, old and everyone but all this does takes it takes dough, it takes money. So this is why please on your way up stop by give something for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala plus something for the house of Allah Subhana Allah and Allah will always give you back in return. Ask Allah subhanaw to accept from all of us. I mean noble I mean, is that Kamala hay, even water to the entire community. So I'm already gonna play but I'll catch
