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

brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:02:03--> 00:02:17

As children, we are taught many stories. Some of them are to put us to sleep. Others of them are to entertain us. And the best of them are those that teach us morals and manners.

00:02:18--> 00:03:03

Brothers and sisters, one of the best stories that we were told as children is the story of the Ant and the Grasshopper. The grasshopper would live day by day, each day when he needed something, he would go out and fetch it. And this was the same whether it was winter or summer. Where's the ant? It was the opposite. The answer would always prepare for the future. Whether it was in the summer or in the winter, he was always preparing for it. And like is our situation out here today. And such days during the winter, it is very hard to prepare for that day. And if you did not prepare for anything in advance, you will not not succeed in your daily tasks. And such the lunch was

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

successful. And the grasshopper was unsuccessful. Because when winter time came, the grasshopper had not planned for it. And he had not gathered the food that he needed, and he had not prepared his shelter. Whereas the ant had gathered its food. It had it sorted already. So when winter came, it was able to do what it had to do to survive. Brothers and sisters, this story teaches a very important lesson. And that is the lesson of preparing for the future. And this is something that our study and the texts of the Quran and the Sunnah actually insight in us, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in Surah lashup Yeah, you already know I'm an otaku. Ah, well turns out not so much but

00:03:46--> 00:04:33

definitely avoid that oh you who believe that fear Allah and that every so look forward to what it is coming tomorrow, meaning so prepared with what is coming for tomorrow. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala in this ayah is specifically referring to the Day of Judgment is specifically referring to the Day of Judgment. He says, prepare for the Day of Judgment. But we have a principle in subsea that lessons from iOS are not derived due to their context. Meaning that even though lots of high notes are specified your middle piano for this is it doesn't mean that we can't use this ayah in other instances as well. It says, unable to be learned before so sudden that we derive lessons not due to

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

the context of Revelation, but due to what can we can derive from the generality of the wording. So much of what the data says that every soul will force to what is what it is putting forth for tomorrow. Brothers and sisters Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us to prepare it for the future. And it is a great sadness that this oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has forgotten this concept, and specifically the community of Montreal and even more specifically, the community

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

The South Shore. And I will expand on it even further. But let us take another example. A man came to the pockets of Aloha and he was selling. And he said Dr. rasulillah, matassa, jasola. When is the our going to come? When is your piano going to happen? department so a lot of money was selling I could have told him, you know, what's going to happen in 10 years is going to happen in 100 years is going to happen in 600 years. But rather than telling him and putting the man in the stage where he would become unprepared, and a stage where he would not be worrisome, he told him women are dead. And what have you prepared for it? He asked, What have you prepared for your piano? Again, the

00:05:39--> 00:05:44

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is inserting that concept of planning and preparing for the future.

00:05:45--> 00:06:03

Brothers and sisters, in order to achieve any goal in our lives, and achieve any objective, we have to first figure out what our objective and goal is. And then after that, we have to take practical steps towards it. Now let us look at the stage of this oma in Montreal.

00:06:04--> 00:06:52

in Montreal, we have close to 100,000 Muslims, 100,000 Muslims, and in the south shore, we have to massage it No. And each machine will approximately get, let's say about 7000 people or 5000 people for each fella, and each of them will have children. And each of them will have brothers and sisters, and each of them will have aunties and uncles and mothers and fathers. Yet Why is it this community of the South Shore with all of its Muslim population has still not established a Muslim school yet? Why is it that this community in the south shore still cannot agree as to which day they will celebrate ages together? Why is it that we have so many Muslim engineers and accountants yet we

00:06:52--> 00:07:33

have no Muslim firm to employ them? Why is it we have so many Muslim doctors yet we do not have a Muslim hospital as of yet, brothers and sisters is because no one takes the time to plan when our wives get pregnant when our sisters get pregnant, and we have to take them to a non Muslim gynecologist or we have to take them to a male sorry, an apologist? Do we not feel that pain? Why is it that pain only lasts for a few moments? Why does it not total pain lasts forever, such that we would build those Muslim hospitals so that we can serve the needs of our sisters in Islam, and we don't have to degrade them by going to a male doctors, brothers and sisters, this is something to

00:07:33--> 00:08:14

think about. Each individual has the responsibility of thinking about goals and objectives. What goals do you want to achieve in your life? gender is the ultimate aspiration for each individual. And that is a beautiful aspiration. But likewise, you have to think about yourselves and your community and your family. What have you done for them? Is it enough that you just provide bread and butter for them on the tables, brothers and sisters, this is not enough. If you do not look after your families and do not agitate them and do not grant them the therapy that they need to live in such a society you are detonating them for destruction. You yourself are plotting a plot a path

00:08:14--> 00:08:53

towards their destruction. Brothers and sisters Think about this, that you raised an individual, you have your young Muslim sister, your young daughter, you want her to grow up as a good Muslim or a Muslim who will protect your chastity, a Muslim who knows how to interact with other individuals. A Muslim who knows just as much about her Deen as she knows about her dunya yet when you don't send her to Muslim schools, and you don't encourage her to keep Muslim friends, how do you expect to achieve this goal? Islam will not be attained overnight, but rather it takes time. When you look at the example of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the revelation of the Quran.

00:08:54--> 00:09:37

Allah subhana wa tada revealed the Quran for 13 years in Makkah, increasing the mind of the Muslims. for 13 years. This is all that was happening increasing of the month. No a scam of the city of no rulings of Sharia law is revealed during that time. And then after their email had increased, that is when Allah subhanaw taala told them about prohibitions and permissibility. Allah subhanaw taala when you prohibited alcohol, he didn't just tell the believers stop drinking alcohol because it wasn't logical at that time. People who are addicted to something you can just tell them to leave it overnight. But you increase the demand. And at the same time, you say don't drink it when you're

00:09:37--> 00:10:00

coming to salon. This is something feasible. This is something that they can achieve. And likely This is how Allah subhanho wa Taala boycotted alcohol and prohibited the other prohibitions and such we have to be with our children, that when you raise them up, you teach them about Islam. You teach them about almost the final Adana, you teach them about gender and gender. And you do this for 1314 years and then

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

You let them live in a society like this, and yes, they might survive. But when you leave your children educated, when you don't take the time, to teach them what they need to know to survive, brothers and sisters, you might as well throw them in a world because you are leading them towards destruction. And now many people may think that building an Islamic school in the south shore is something unfeasible. But let me remind you of the statement of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he said, Allah, Who are you guys on the opposition, that Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is as the slave thinks of him. So if you think that Allah subhanho wa Taala, as

00:10:36--> 00:11:19

someone who was merciful, and someone you can rely upon, and someone who will help you in your goals, then you will find Allah subhana wa tada in such a state, but an individual who thinks that he is doomed. And everything he does is, you know, doomed and there is no future for it. And he is someone who is very pessimistic, then this his results will be the same, he will have no objectives, and then he will be left to lead that to achieve no objectives as well. Brothers and sisters, there's a famous saying, even in English philosophy, that he who fails to plan plans to feel that those people who don't take the steps to plan events and plan their goals and objectives, it is as

00:11:19--> 00:11:57

if they are planning to fail, meaning that you do not want anything else other than failure. So now think about all the objectives. Think about what this community needs. We mentioned a Muslim hospital. Again, we have so many Muslim doctors, yet, where are the Muslim hospitals? We have so many Muslim accountants and engineers, but where are the Muslim engineering firms and the Muslim accounting firms? Likewise, we have so many other professions. We have so many Muslim teachers in the south shore. I know two brothers that are my age who are Muslim teachers, yet where is the Islamic school for them to teach him? This responsibility is not enough for the Imams of the

00:11:57--> 00:12:36

mustards and not for the administration of the massages, but it is their responsibility upon each and every individual. Brothers and sisters. Think about the goals that you want to achieve. Think about how you can help the unbound Mohammed Salah lohani and send them get the brothers and sisters together and see how you can make it feasible. Because in order for us to, to survive as an oma, we need all of these things in the West. We need our Islamic schools, we need our Muslim hospitals, and we need our Muslim forums. And if you are not helping in this, then know that you're only leading towards this destruction of the Omar Mohammed Salah lohani with Sena akuto, Cody Hydra was tell

00:12:36--> 00:12:42

Pharaoh la Holly welcome Elisa is a Muslim equilibriums first of Pharaoh in the who's one of the photos of me.

00:12:53--> 00:12:59

From the Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Wada, and he was supposed to be here one minute.

00:13:02--> 00:13:41

That being said, in terms of preparation and planning, we need to realize that one of the first steps that we need to partake in before we partake in any project, as we know it in terms of both there are those goals which are long term, and those who are short term. And you yourself need to think about short term goals. Think about what would you like to do during each day, you try to think that you will try at least once to align the machine each day, you try to think that maybe you will help out one poor person each day. Think about all the things that you can do in terms of short term goals, and try to achieve them and this will uplift your confidence and this will make you more

00:13:41--> 00:14:15

confident. And likewise this will increase your demand. And likewise, it will give you an idea of the state of the people when you come to the masjid. You see Muslims of all different backgrounds, the rich, the poor, the Arabs, the Pakistanis, the English speaking the non English speaking the French speaking the non French speaking, this is how you mix with people and see the state of the people. And likewise, when you meet with poor people, and you give them something to eat or something to drink, you converse with them, see what the situation is, see how you can improve it. Think about all the poor Muslims in Montreal, how can you help them and amongst them are so many

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

Muslims go to areas in downtown areas such as mustard, oma, and the mustard for them and all these areas and you have Muslims who are literally dying without food. We're in a state of poverty and there's no one to help them because again, we don't have Muslim soup kitchens. But as in sisters, this is something to think about. That is something for the short term. Now thinking long term. How do we improve the state of the oma Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the long term.

00:14:42--> 00:15:00

Women in our society and in our nation and in our history have always played an important tool. But it is sadly said in our times that Muslim men and women are equals and rather cruel.

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

needing a sense of competition amongst one another. This is not how the Omar Mohamed Salah Lavanya was set up is supposed to think men and women are not competing with one another for positions in this dunya. Allah subhanho wa Taala created them distinct. Each of them has separate responsibilities. Yet it is sadly when men and women compete with one another for positions that they forget about greater objectives. If you think about all the great men of this oma, there was always a woman by their sight. Take the example of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he first received revelation, and he was in a state of panic, and he didn't know what to do.

00:15:42--> 00:15:47

Who was it, that guy that granted him comfort and peace, it was none other than Khadija.

00:15:48--> 00:16:25

And likewise, the state of the famous Sahabi anisette nomadic, it was his world. It was his mother, at the age of nine years old, that she went to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said, Take my son as your service so he can help you and be educated. And likewise, when you look at him, I'm a chef. Who was it that sent him to the desert to study the Arabic language, it was none other than his mother. When you look at Imam Al Bukhari, he was born with blindness. And who was it ma da, O Allah, Allah, even from his blindness, and thus Allah subhanho wa Taala took away his blindness, it was none other than his mother.

00:16:26--> 00:17:07

And likewise, who was it? When matale Stella was about to be killed, yet his mother took him and sought refuge for him. It was his mother, brothers and sisters, our women play a very key role in our society. And they are not meant to compete with men and men are not meant to compete with women, but rather, they complement one another, and they supplement one another. And this is a state that is supposed to be in. And it is very sad to see that our woman are no longer being agitated, that we don't have facilities specifically for our women. We have Holocaust in the masjid, yet they are only for the brothers. There are schools that we have, yet we give preference to the males or the

00:17:07--> 00:17:42

females, and other things as well. If we do not take the time to educate our women know that we're not only harming our women, but we're harming our own as a whole. Because if you want your children to have the highest proper tarbiyah, the woman who gives you the third you have to have that third year as well. And also behind the with Donna, he gives us a terrible in the Quran, insurance of caffeine, Allah subhanho wa Taala said, well, dorable Allahumma salli ala Dena am an Emirate of Iran is that Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala he gives forth a parable for the believers.

00:17:43--> 00:17:58

And this parable is not just for the women, but it is for the believers as a whole. He says, We have sent forth the parable of the wife of their own, that when she said Robin Neely is a very gentle gentleness when a genie means our means that

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

when a gentleman saw a minister I wanna I was only here when did you need me another form of oil in that Oh, a lot built for me. I house with you in Jenna, that Oh ALLAH does for me next to you, I house in Jana, and say me far from your own and his oppression and say me from the people who are oppressive.

00:18:19--> 00:19:03

This is an example for all the believers, unless you kind of look down this list for no less than a minute with data put up put forth the example of a prophet, he could have put forth the example of a wise man in history. But unless it kind of went to Allah chose a woman in particular, to show us the importance of the woman and the role she's supposed to play. Now look at the example of the wife of your own. She was someone who lived under the most hierarchical of law rulers. Yet when the truth came to her, she accepted it and she did not hesitate. The words were said she could have had all the luxuries of this world around was one of the richest people mankind has ever known. Yet, when

00:19:03--> 00:19:44

most Elisa Lam came with the truth of Islam, and accepting Allah subhanho wa Taala, as her Lord, the one to be worshipped alone, she accepted it and abandoned the riches of your own. And she stuck with the truth. And this is an example of an interview I was supposed to give to our women, that there are people who are courageous that even though they were he judged, and they cover themselves, we do not deprive them of their courage, but rather we encourage them to be courageous, and speak out in front of a question and seek the truth, even if it means that they may lose something, and such as the example of the wife of Iran. And then a lot of times what goes on to say in the 12th is a source

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

of suffering. And we put forth the example of Maria, the one who protected her chastity and this is another example. But as in sisters, when our wives and our daughters and our sisters go to school over here, they seek to things

00:20:01--> 00:20:15

The was the education system seeks two things from them. One is to take away the modesty and chastity that you look in the situation in France, the situation in Turkey, the Bangladeshi jobs in education facilities.

00:20:16--> 00:20:52

And the second thing they seek is to corrupted our thought process, that they want them to think that Muslim women are oppressed. But what men and women are not oppressed, they are rather honored. It is our deficiency as men, that we don't take the time to educate our women, our daughters when they are young, we don't instill that courage in them. We don't instill the love of the dean in them. This is our deficiency as men. And this is why our women turn out the way they are. And that is why our women have become busy with shopping, and talking and gossiping, and being busy on the phone and watching TV all day. It is our deficiency as men when we do not do our jobs that didn't

00:20:52--> 00:21:05

come out in that state. Brothers and sisters, for those of you who were were who have been following the news, several weeks back, there was this woman, and she auctions something off for $3.5 million.

00:21:06--> 00:21:46

Now when you think about it, not even God is auctions for that much not even artifacts from the 14 and 1300s are auctioned off with that much. Do you know what's your auction off brothers and sisters and prepare yourself with this? Because Indeed, it is something very, very disturbing. She auctioned off her virginity, she auctioned off that very gift that Allah subhanaw taala told her to protect and preserve, she auction it off for $3.5 million. This is the type of society that we live in brothers and sisters. And if we do not protect our women, we do not protect our sisters and our daughters, and educate them and encourage them to leave to lead chaste lifestyles. And we do not

00:21:46--> 00:22:24

educate them to be courageous and honor for brothers and sisters, we leave our own doom. This is something very important to think about. That we need to start planning in the short term. And in the long term. In the short term, what can we do each day to improve the state of the oma, we can help our brothers and sisters, we can try to come to the massages in the long term I just mentioned one example. We need to start educating our sisters and providing facilities for them. If they need a place to hang out together and have sports activities, we need to provide Muslim gyms for them. So they have the seclusion. If they want to go swimming, we need swimming pools for them. They want to

00:22:24--> 00:23:02

go to the gym, we need gyms for them, if they want to further their education. We need Muslim schools, if they are sick, if they need some sort of medical help, we need those Muslim schools for them. But isn't sisters, take it upon yourself to think about these things. And know that you do not live just for the day, but rather you live for the long term and your life will continue even on in the hereafter. And if you do not prepare for your Acura then your your dunya is doomed as well. And it reminds you of a great commandment that Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded and started with himself when he said in the law Hello my name is Sal Luna Allenby

00:23:03--> 00:23:15

Amano San Juan de he recently Moses Lima Allahumma salli ala Muhammad in Allah Allah Muhammad, Tomas, Allah Allah, Allah Allah subhanho wa barakaatuh Muhammad Muhammad

Anton Sora is one and almost badass enough equally much an alarm on so this one was photography and I think for the Macan alone so this one is seen as eco limited Allahumma is an Islamic one Muslim in a love marriage. Well Islam honestly means a lot nicer than Islam and Muslim means a lot more in nine hours available from itself it will be more emphatic I mean robotics will be coming. While an offseason, Antarctic and sakana estimates are dynastic are some of the most sentimental about economy in America, Mohamed's
