So please keep everyone here dwad May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect our brothers and sisters May Allah subhanho wa Taala save them. And so far the numbers I was just looking at the numbers before Southeast Asia there are I mean once again, there's always gonna be variations when it comes to numbers. But the latest number I saw was that there are approximately 4000 people died due to this earthquake. They have already mentioned that they are they have found kids, kids whose entire families have been wiped out only the kid is left in the family. So Allah you know, you read these

00:00:41 --> 00:01:17

May Allah subhanaw taala help them may Allah subhanho wa Taala aid them may Allah subhanaw taala help them recover from from this tragic incident. And all over on WhatsApp and everywhere you will see that various Islamic organizations are doing a lot of work. They're trying to send aid in their own capacity. We hear also an epic we're trying to collect money here. We're working with other charitable organizations to send the aid over there inshallah. So, if you want to donate and help our brothers and sisters, there's two ways to do that. Number one is through the kiosk. Inshallah.

00:01:18 --> 00:01:58

The other way if you want to send the money through Zell, you can do it at earthquake at Epic missouri.org That's Zell email address, earthquake at Epic missouri.org we want to do a turkey by once again, since you know there were multiple earthquakes and they happen in both countries. So this is the email address that we we you know, we have set earthquake at Epic majid.org. Now, I also want to remind everyone that we made the announcement earlier that we are collecting money for families for Ramadan. So it takes at $2 to take care of an entire family throughout the entire month of Ramadan. So on your way out also just want to remind everyone you may have forgotten, we have

00:01:58 --> 00:02:37

boxes outside and if you want to Zell I think there's Ramadan forgotten for that the that you want to just for this L but on the way out you can see there are boxes over there, you can stop at the kiosk also and donate over there once again $82 will take care of a entire family overseas for the entire month of Ramadan. So please donate generously for our brothers and sisters and Turkey and Syria. also donate Inshallah, for the Milan for Milan food drive. Inshallah, once again, we're working very diligently with other organizations. So this is one I just made this announcement for the reef hotrock this will have Mannerheim one of the things that we see today often when it comes

00:02:37 --> 00:03:23

to our children, and even when it comes to adults, we're focused on the amount. We're always focused on quantity, there is quality and there's quantity. We're always focused on quantity, Allah subhanho wa Taala he focuses on what quality Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran. I love the holofoil Mota will hire this is the second hire. So they'll mark Allah says Tobiah rockin lady be Eddie Hill Monique, that first of all, all the baraka belongs to Allah subhanho wa taala. He is the one from whom Baraka emanates, and he is a source of all the baraka and then the Quran says, in his hand belongs the kingdom and the milkier of every single thing. Allah then says well who are militia in

00:03:23 --> 00:04:06

Cadiz? He has the power to do anything he wants. And then he says, Allah the Hala Kalamata will hire Allah has created life and death. Why did Allah create life and death? Leah Balu Welcome to test you. To test you two things about this word number one is that Allah subhana wa Taala understands that within the human being there is a component of competition. Okay. There is a component of competition. We like to compete with each other. He has this house, I have this house, he has this much I have this much. He has this many businesses. I have this many businesses, there is a competitive, competitive nature to the human being. Allah subhanho wa Taala understands this, and

00:04:06 --> 00:04:45

this is where Allah subhanaw taala wants us to compete when it comes to good things. That's why Allah subhanho wa Taala says will be that he can fail yet enough hustling with enough he soon when it comes to dunya we should not compete. But when it comes to coming close to Allah subhanho wa Taala there is nothing wrong if we compete with each other. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is the very first thing this means. The second thing this means is that from the same word, Leah Balu ACOEM comes the word IP Tila, if Tila means adversities, calamities difficulties. So when your back is against the wall when the calamities come, that is when our true loyalty is tested before Allah

00:04:45 --> 00:04:59

subhanho wa Taala that is why is easy to be patient. But when the calamity hits and a person's patience is then truly tested. This is this person a true sob it is she a sobbing or not. That is when that

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

Has comes. So at that particular situation. It's not about the quantity. It's about the quality that Allah subhanho wa Taala looks at. And he says Lee Eberly welcome a you come to us and who am Allah, Allah gave us life and death. Allah created life and death to test who is the best amongst you in terms of the quality of deeds? Allah never said Leah Balu Akuma you come AXA Romulan, he never said that we have created life and death to test who will commit who will perform the most amount of deeds. Allah subhanho wa Taala says us and what Amala come from this word accent comes the word heir son, there is Islam there is Iman and the highest level when it comes to Allah subhanho wa Taala is

00:05:45 --> 00:06:23

what your son as we find in the Hadith Algebra II, the point I'm trying to make is brothers and sisters. Today, a lot of times we are overly obsessed with the quantity but we have to be patient we have to pay close attention to the core, we have to pay attention to the quality, not the quantity, the quantity will come later on, but we can never forsake the quality. That is why we fight and that hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a man came to the Prophet alayhi salam and said, what if I did only the basic bare minimum I prayed only 510 days solid, I not do anything extra. If I just gave the basic zakat on an annual basis just once a year, I give my money for Allah subhanho

00:06:23 --> 00:07:05

wa Taala and I perform hygiene a lifetime and so forth. Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said that if this man truly sticks to what he is doing, but he does it with quality, he will enter into Jannah This is the most important thing a person can read 100 Because of solid, but if there is no class, it is no good. Rather a person prays to raka solid, but if it has quality, then it will be before it before Allah subhanho wa Taala it will be accepted and Subhanallah pay attention to the world that we live in to look everywhere around us. No one pays attention to the quantity everyone pays attention to the quality. Let me give you a very practical example. When COVID first hit, okay, we

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

all know what happened to the economy. We know what happened to the food industry. We know what happened to especially the car industry. We saw we saw dealerships, the parking lots or parking lots are empty, okay, they have limited amount of cars, the prices have spiked and so forth by ask you or ask you one question. All these companies, they know that they have a shortage, they have a shortage of cars. Did they ever if they were to ask compromise one thing, compromise your quality or compromise your quantity, they will compromise their quantity, they never will compromise their quality. They made sure that their quality still remains at the highest level. They will never

00:07:45 --> 00:08:27

compromise your quality. Every single company. They have people hired not as quality control. They want to make sure that whatever there are, they are releasing from that company. It has quality And subhanAllah when you say the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it was always about quality. Rasul Allah, some Thai his Sahaba it's not about the quantity, it's about even if we are a little even if we are only a handful, but if we are truly dedicated to Allah subhanho wa taala. That's all that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala looks at. And therefore you see that early on, Muslims were very limited. Muslims were very limited, but because they had quant quality over quantity, Allah

00:08:27 --> 00:09:09

subhanaw taala aided them in the Battle of butter 313 versus 1000. Of course we look at it quality from a from a quality perspective, they don't even match but because these 313 were so illustrious, there were so amazing in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah gave lucky victory to 313 over over that. And not only that, but even in the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we also learned that whenever the Sahaba they felt that their quality, their quantity mattered over their quality. Allah subhanho wa Taala made them face defeat. So that is why brothers and sisters, everything that we do, we need to first of all, make sure that we do everything with quality. It's

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

not about the quantity, it's about the quality. And yes, the quantity came later on in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when you had a Bilas tribes that came into the fold of Islam in our come earlier on. They came all afterwards when Allah says in the Quran, what are at NASA Yeah, the whole Luna feeding Allah He have words and you will see people coming into many folds into the fold of Islam. You will see people coming in great amount of numbers into the fold of Islam. This is something Rasulullah Salallahu Salam saw at the end of his life, at the beginning, it was not about the quantity, it was about the quality and that is why we have to also focus on the

00:09:51 --> 00:09:59

quality the the quality first and here's the here's the most important thing we have to understand. If you if the quality is there, listen to this very carefully.

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

If the quality is there, the quantity will increase. Okay? If the quality is there, the quantity will increase. And that quantity that will increase it will have quality. But if the focus is quantity, and over quality, then whatever good we're doing is going to last only for a very short period of time. This is a Rule of Life, take anything in life and whatever I'm telling you apply this rule and you will see what I'm talking about. When you do anything without quality, you will not last for a very long time because why? Because your heart is not into it, you have not invested into it. That is why when it comes to ourselves, when it comes to our children, we always teach them

00:10:45 --> 00:11:27

when it comes to the matters of dunya always put quality over quantity. And when it comes to the matters of our deen we always put quantity quality over quantity when I read Quran even if I read Quran, I read Quran the correct way is not about reading the entire Quran. It's about reading the Quran the correct way, if a person read the Quran, only one Jews the correct way, versus a person who read the entire Quran. And there were so many mistakes, so many mistakes and so forth. The person who read one just the correct way that is more dear to Allah subhanho wa Taala a person who read Torah Kassala was in class versus a person who does not pray at all with no in class, the first

00:11:27 --> 00:12:07

person is the better person. So that is why brothers and sisters, our dean has also taught us do everything with quality. Leah Balu Akuma, you can ask Amala when it comes to our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala with our son. So this is why we keep this in mind going forward. And especially now that Ramadan is not very far, we're only like, what 4344 days away from the month of Ramadan. Starting now we have to start thinking about Ramadan, we have to start planning for Ramadan, that when Ramadan comes whatever I do, I have to make sure that I do it with the highest amount of quality. It's not about the quantity, but it's about the quality. If the quality is there,

00:12:07 --> 00:12:45

the quantity will eventually come. But if the quality if the if the quality is not there, only the quantity, the quantity will not last for a long time. That's why you look at Ramadan, I'm going to finish on this. Look at our Ramadan because there's no quality, the quantity is there. We say I have fasted for 30 days, the quantity is there because there's no quality to the 30 days. That's why the spirit of Ramadan is gone the first night of Chawan because the quality the quality is not there. So that's why going forward. Let's understand this and we have to teach this to our children. Also, quality always matters over quantity. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us amongst those who do

00:12:45 --> 00:12:52

everything in the best way with our son immunoblot I mean, what is that Kamala Hey, salaam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh in
