00:04:57--> 00:04:59

we praise our Lord Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

Master, our Sustainer our Lord and our provider, whatever Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses with guidance and Islam that no one can misguide. And whoever ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala leaves to go astray due to that person turning away from Allah, His signs and his guidance and no one can guide, we testify that no one has the right to be worshipped, except our master and our Lord Allah subhanho wa taala. And that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam is his final messenger, and his servant

00:05:40--> 00:05:49

to proceed, there is a feeling in our heart, that if we gain this feeling, we will be satisfied.

00:05:50--> 00:06:14

And this feeling is something that every single person and human is looking for many secret or their life, many sacrifices to achieve this feeling. And this is the feeling of gaining happiness. Every single person is seeking and looking for it. There are people who find it, and there are people who don't find it.

00:06:16--> 00:07:15

And happiness is from the objectives of Islam, and from the objectives of the Sharia, that if we as individuals, were to understand Islam, and if we were to apply Islam in our lives, and if we were to worship our Lord, Allah subhanho wa Taala the way we should be worshiping Him, we will be happy individuals, and that through understanding Islam, that it did not come just to bring rules and regulations, but rather it came to purify us and to make us happy people. Jah to Sharia, be tactics are added by Sharia, Islam and the Sharia came, so that it can truly establish happiness for mankind. The word Shetty in Arabic comes from the word water stream, the water stream that if you

00:07:15--> 00:08:10

follow it, it will lead you to a source that those who drink from the water stream they will find nourishment, they will find life they will find energy. And likewise those who follow the Sharia, the path of Allah subhanaw taala they will find life they will find purity and they will find real strength and energy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, if there was a river stream at the doors have one of you that he uses every day to clean himself five times a day with any dirt remain. They the companions are the Allahu Taala and no one replied No, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, likewise are the five prayers. Allah subhanho wa Taala erases all your mistakes due to

00:08:10--> 00:08:10


00:08:12--> 00:08:41

Islam it cleans us, the same way the water, it cleans the outer dirt, Islamic cleans the inner dirt, and the outer. It purifies the heart and a important lesson that we should teach ourselves and our families and in particular, the youth and children that following Islam and being close to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:08:42--> 00:09:39

will bring happiness and that there is a misconception that if you become religious, then you're going to become a serious person, a boring person, a person does not enjoy his life or have fun. But in reality, Allah subhanho wa Taala he wants happiness for us. He wants us to be happy and he wants our life to be easy. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, you read Allah who become will Yusra while you ready to become a lotus, Allah once he wishes ease for you, and happiness, and he does not want hardship or difficulty for us. Allah subhanho wa Taala says ba MA and then I'll Ecole Quran and it Ashkar. The Quran has not been revealed so that you can despair. Rather the Quran has been revealed

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

so that you can prosper and become happy. And this is why whoever is a true believer and does righteous good deeds, if it's fasting, if it's giving zakat, charity, being good to your parents, praying to Yom reciting Quran doing dhikr the more he does this

00:10:00--> 00:10:50

Chin's, the more happiness he will gain. And the more he doesn't do worship and actions, and instead, the sins, the more depression he will feel, the more sadness, the more he will feel something is missing in his heart. Because Allah says, Man, I mean Lasallian mean that Karen onta well who are Mothman Fallon, Jana who hired and whoever from you? Does righteous and good deeds, and he is a believer. Even if it's male or female, then he will have a higher alive, a true life that is playable. Good, and pure and happy. And he'll be rewarded with an agenda home as Rohan biasanya. McIndoe. Yeah, I'm alone, Allah does not forget the good that you do. And he would reward you the

00:10:50--> 00:11:08

best reward for what you used to do. And the person who turns away, woman, Allah and decree for in Allah humeri Schatten Blanca, but the one who turns away from Allah, he thinks, let me explore life. Let me go to the other path,

00:11:09--> 00:11:56

deceiving himself, thinking this is where the real fun is, this is where the real joy and he turns away from Allah, then he will have a higher a life that is full of problems and difficulties. And this is why we need to remember your true happiness in this life, even if we are tested with trials and tribulations and we go through difficulties, but so long as you have Iman, and you have a relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala then you will be happy, and the person who might have all the luxuries and all the wealth, but he has no Allah in his life, then he will always feel empty. And as for the Allahu taala, and who he narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:11:57--> 00:12:35

that there will be a man that will come and he had a sheduled Bella, he had the worst trials and tribulations and difficulties in his life. However, he was among men, he had Iman, he had somewhere he had a relationship with Allah. So this person on the Day of Judgment will be dipped in paradise just for a small moment. And he will see the guidance, He will see the rivers, he will see the food. He will see the people of Ghana laughing and enjoying themselves. And you will be asked Yeah, oh servant in this dunya in this world, were you truly sad?

00:12:36--> 00:13:14

Did you truly have a hard and difficult life he will say by Allah. I never had a difficult life, because he's a man kept him happy. And likewise a person will come, who had every single thing that you can think of. He had everything in this dunya but he was a Kaffir were who the biller, he did not give sugarcoat, and thanks to Allah, not for a single small blessing. And this person will be dipped in Jahannam for a small moment, and he will see the other job, he will see the torture and the punishment. And he will be asked Yeah, in this world, were you truly happy?

00:13:15--> 00:13:18

Did you truly find ease and he will say by Allah, I was never happy.

00:13:19--> 00:13:27

The rise of mental health today in the West is at its peak, suicide rates, depression,

00:13:28--> 00:13:46

because we are moving away from faith. And we are assuming that materialism brings us happiness, when in reality strengthening ie man and having a life with Allah subhanaw taala is the true happiness. Al Imam Ibn Ibrahim Rahim Allah He said

00:13:47--> 00:14:03

that in my shop gotta tell the hub way up cassava, the hardship that you invest in any good deed that you do. Fasting is hard, sometimes praying pm during Hajj or Umrah there's that hardship.

00:14:04--> 00:14:49

There's physical hardship. You become tired sometimes. But as soon as you finish that deed you feel so good. How many of us after we pray Tara we're and Tiama lane. Or when Ramadan is over. We feel sad. Ramadan don't leave us or when we are fasting a long day and it's hot and we're tired and thirsty. The moment that Adan comes from other that we break our fast. We feel that Farah that happiness because they cite me, Farhan as the prophets, Allah as Anna said, His joy is when he breaks his false and when he meets his lord with this deed, so yes, good deeds have machaca but when you finish that deed, you forget about that machaca that hardship goes and what remains is the

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

happiness and what remains is the reward from Allah. We're in that and Maha seated had Way Up Korea acaba. Likewise

00:15:00--> 00:15:50

That is that you assume you gained all that pleasure and joy you think you gain from a sin it leaves as soon as you commit that sin, you feel that darkness, you feel that shame and guilt and sadness and what remains is the record is the accountability is the sadness that remains with it. So therefore, strengthening the Eman and the best way and the only way to strengthen the Eman is bit pa by doing good deeds and the way to affect the Eman and decrease is Bill Murase with the sins and therefore we need to be conscious of always safeguarding our heights, making it Saleem and Muneeb and Mothma in and close to Allah azza wa jal so that we can truly experience happiness a Kodiak

00:15:50--> 00:15:56

already had what a stop for Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah InfraStop Pharaoh who in who Allah for Rahim.

00:16:08--> 00:16:57

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Hamdan cathedra wa salatu salam ala shuffle mousseline, Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi as a Marine, Allah azza wa jal says, Alladhina Am I know what my inocula Wuhan basically Allah, Allah bakerella He taught my immune Kulu those who believe and their hearts find rest and tranquility in the remembrance of Allah indeed, in the remembrance of Allah, with the hearts truly find rest, man Hashem Rama and I believe will be will be Muneeb the one who fears Allah and the unseen. And he goes and approaches Allah with a caliber heart that is always returning to him, always seeking forgiveness, and repenting. Allah says Alladhina either locate

00:16:57--> 00:17:47

Allah Who would you let perubahan was Siberian Allah Masaba whom well in my opinion was salah, those who when they remember ALLAH, their hearts that affected they love Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, Allah says Allah man at Allah has been Salim, except on this day, when neither your wealth or children or anything can benefit you, except the one who comes with the height, that is sound and good. So therefore, the most important matter to achieve happiness in this world and the next is to work on our hearts and make it close to Allah subhanho wa taala. From the ways of achieving happiness is by having also a relationship with the Quran, as the Quran will make us taste the

00:17:47--> 00:18:37

sweetness of everybody. And there are many benefits and rewards we can gain from the Quran. The first benefit is through doing estimate of the Quran by listening to the Quran playing the Quran frequently in our cars in our homes, because Allah Subhana Allah says we're either putting Al Quran F istemi, arugula, for steamer, listening to the Quran, there are rewards. Then the second level is Tilawat. In Quran, reciting and reading the Quran AlLadhina attina, who will Kitab yet Luna who have Catala Watty. Those who are granted the book they recite it the way it should be recited and they recite it frequently. So just one heart of the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, you will get the

00:18:37--> 00:19:25

reward of every letter that you recite in the Quran. And each letter, the reward of it is multiplied 10 times. So an average calculation my beloved brothers, if you read just one page of the Quran, which will take you three minutes, four minutes, you will gain 3000 Hassanal recorded for you in three minutes. And if you try to do one user of the Quran, which will take us 30 To 45 minutes, then you can gain 100,000 Hassan and for those who complete the Quran, which again probably we can do once a month once every two months if we spend 30 to 45 minutes. Research says that an average person spends 45 minutes on Instagram and Facebook. So surely we can give 45 minutes to the book of

00:19:25--> 00:19:59

Allah. And if so, you will gain between three to 5 million Hasina Wallah who you'll die fully mijoshop and Allah will multiply and give for whoever he wants more than this. These are simple actions, simple efforts small amounts of time that grants us millions of Hassan ad in such an easy way The movement should hasten to do these good deeds and they'll have memorizing the Quran if reciting the Quran gains us millions imagine those who spend the efforts and recite it so many times.

00:20:00--> 00:20:34

In order to memorize it, well who is on the unit office to do really the you know to learn, these verses are preserved in our hearts as believers. This is how we preserve the most half in the siddur of those who were granted knowledge. Then my beloved brother is the fourth way and step to gain benefits from the Quran is through to the bar, through pondering, thinking, and reflecting over the verses. In fact, Tab Bar reflecting is one of the objectives behind the Quran.

00:20:36--> 00:20:43

Allah did not reveal the Quran just so that we can recite or even memorize, rather the objective as Allah says,

00:20:44--> 00:21:35

Kitab will Anza now who ileka Mobile rock, Leah Debreu it Leah Debreu the lamb literally this letter lamb it tells you the reason and the wisdom behind something. This glorious book that was revealed full of blessings Lee at that burrow so that they may reflect and ponder. And the fifth and the most important is alignment. There is no point of reciting, and memorizing and even reflecting if you're not going to apply the meanings and act upon it. Alladhina stma ronelle Cole for yet Tabea una escena. Those who listen to the book, and they follow it in the best way. The Quran, my beloved brothers is personal for each one of us. And we must have a close relationship with the Quran in

00:21:35--> 00:22:25

order to communicate frequently with Allah and to be close and whoever has a relationship with the Quran does not need a relationship with anyone else. From the ways of gaining happiness is dhikr remembering Allah frequently, what could Allah cathedra law come to your own and remember Allah frequently, so that you can make it make you can gain success. So those who remember Allah frequently, as Allah says in the field hockey summer YT will work delightfully when the IR team will Al Bab, Allah DNA of Quran Allah heracleum and maca root and why Allah you know, be him were to affect karoun were to affect Corona fakulti summer where it will rob bene ma halacha about Elon

00:22:25--> 00:22:32

Subhan, Subhana Kathina dinar, those who see in the heavens and the earth,

00:22:33--> 00:23:14

the day and the night. These are true signs for the people of understanding. Those who remember Allah, standing, sitting and lying down and they think and they reflect over the creation of Allah, the great oceans, the great galaxies, the stars, this universe that Allah created, the rivers, all of these are signs, they think about this and they say yeah, Allah Oh our Lord, You have not created all of this in vain. Oh Allah save us. O Allah guide us, save us, protect us.

00:23:16--> 00:23:36

From the ways of gaining happiness My beloved brothers is Shakur, gratefulness, gratitude. We are going through a crisis in the West, where we don't give enough thanks for our blessings. We forget about the many Muslims around the world who are suffering.

00:23:38--> 00:23:51

We don't acknowledge the basic blessings. Every one of us wakes up with a house and there's many homeless food and drink, clothes, shelter

00:23:52--> 00:23:59

and these blessings assigned of a grateful believer who will lead the experiment in amphitheatre Atilla

00:24:01--> 00:24:47

while I started millionaire AMFI Marcia Tila the real shocker is the one who gives thanks for his blessings and he uses his blessings for the sake of pleasing Allah. And this will make you a happier person because when you look at what you have, and the blessings, you think, yeah, Allah, You have blessed me so much. You have protected me you have guided me and the most important blessings my beloved barbers to give sugar to Allah. More important than everything is near metal Iman that Allah guided us to the straight path that Allah guided us as Muslimeen that we are here praying today, when there are others lost in darkness near metal Eman when he died, that we need to give thanks to

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

Allah. And by doing this. It makes us more selfless. It makes us happier people. Positive people not negative. always recognize

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

in thanking Allah, and I will end with a story a true story that we personally have experience.

00:25:10--> 00:25:10

When we did

00:25:12--> 00:25:19

some small charity work, may Allah accept and forgive us all. With the Sudan, the refugees

00:25:20--> 00:25:22

are the Eritrean refugees in Sudan.

00:25:23--> 00:25:24

And these

00:25:25--> 00:25:28

refugees in Sudan after the war.

00:25:29--> 00:25:45

They are from the poorest people in the world. And not much knowledge and awareness exists within the Muslim community. These are people that we need to hopefully make fundraising campaigns for and help them. So there was a group of

00:25:46--> 00:25:51

Sudan, Sudan who came on Hajj, because a person has sponsored

00:25:52--> 00:26:29

a big group of judges from all over the world and three of them from Sudan got accepted. So they went to perform Hajj. However, the condition was that there is no accommodation, your flights are covered. And you have to sort out your own accommodation. So they said that we live in refugee camps at the moment. So it's no problem we'll just go to the Haram will go to Mecca, will sleep anywhere we don't mind? Well, how they'll Bella deal. I mean, this is the secure place. So they stayed in the Haram. This is the best recommendation for them for lunch and dinner.

00:26:30--> 00:26:58

They went outside and they saw a large queue a large line of people taking a bag of food each. So each one took a bag and they sat on the floor. They rip the bag and they put the rice all together. rice and meat. So they started to eat the rice. And then they started to eat some of the meat. One of them put the meat in his mouth and a strange look was in his face.

00:26:59--> 00:27:10

So someone asked him what's wrong? He said Subhanallah you see this meat? I'm 42 years old. Well Allah he this is the first time I taste meat.

00:27:11--> 00:27:17

This is the first time in my life I taste the joy of meat.

00:27:18--> 00:27:25

We are so blessed brothers and sisters. We forget about the basic blessings. We have meet.

00:27:26--> 00:27:33

Once a week, twice, three, many times chicken anything we want to eat. We are living a luxury life.

00:27:35--> 00:28:21

And we need to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for every blessing and use this blessing which will help us become grateful and happy and positive people. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala the Almighty, the old kind of old, generous, the all merciful to make us from those who are happy and grateful individuals.
