We begin by praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, we declare His greatness we declare His Oneness, we thank him for the many blessings that He sent to us, amongst them, this beautiful month of Ramadan. And

00:10:42--> 00:11:18

amongst those many blessings, the sending of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, as a mercy to the worlds we ask Allah subhanaw taala to send his peace and blessings upon him, the prophets and messengers that came before him, his family and companions that served alongside him and those that follow in his blessing path until the day of judgment and we ask Allah to make us amongst them Allah Maha Amin, dear brothers and sisters, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, couldn't be fought Lillah wa rahmatullahi fabby Dominica for the opera who hide on lineage, Marilyn, say in the bounty of Allah and in His mercy in this guidance that he has sent, not just the text, but the

00:11:18--> 00:12:02

context, not just something that is abstract, but something that is so beautifully manifest in the person of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam in this guidance that fills a void in the hearts that cannot be filled with anything else. Let them find joy in that. And that is better than what anyone else can compile. That is better than and how can we to care for those that are destroyed by the pursuit of quantity, that guidance that fills the heart, that guidance that gives you a sense of purpose, that guidance that gives you a sense of clarity, and whoever has clarity has joy has happiness and SubhanAllah. What I want to speak about in these few minutes that we have today is

00:12:02--> 00:12:41

when Allah subhanaw taala mandates joy when Allah commands you to have joy, what does that even mean? On this day right now? It would be haram for you to fast, it would be prohibited for you to fast on this day or on the other eat. Why? Because the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam said these are days of joy, celebration, feasting, these are days where we are to celebrate the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala upon us this is not a day of fasting, if there is any good in it. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who loved his Ibadah more than anyone else or anything else. He would have fasted Salah Hardy, who was salam as a form of coming close to Allah, but he did not do so it

00:12:41--> 00:13:24

is Salatu was Salam, the same prophet, and he his Salatu was Salam. And the Companions who were in the masjid with their tents pitched for 10 consecutive nights worshiping Allah subhanaw taala with their eyes bloodshot. As soon as the day of Eid came suddenly in that same masjid, you have the Abyssinians during war dances, you had the children running around and playing and singing. And this was not a cognitive dissonance, in fact, because they found their joy and they found their fulfillment from the same source Allah subhanaw taala. And so these were not a people that turned the page of obedience into disobedience. These were people that found joy in their Salah and found

00:13:24--> 00:13:54

joy in their celebration, and connected it all back to Allah subhanaw taala and understood that Allah gives us these things for our own good when Allah commands happiness, some of the brothers and sisters would say, how can we celebrate Eid knowing what's happening to our brothers and sisters in Palestine or in Afghanistan? How can we celebrate eight How can we smile? How can we find joy and laughter? You know what? Allah never cancelled aids. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam never cancelled aid.

00:13:55--> 00:14:36

At what year in the life of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did they not bury Shahada? Did they not bury martyrs? When were they between bedded and or the conduct and everything in between? What year? Did they not have widows and people that suffered great catastrophes? What year did the Prophet sallallahu angsana not lose one of his own family members, but they never canceled or eat, no matter what happens because Allah subhanaw taala knows that we need this sometimes we need that joy. And it's not sinful, to be happy. Sometimes it is necessary because you can be happy without being heedless. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam as Abdullah and how to follow the Allah to

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

Allah and who says Mara a to add and cut. I never saw anyone in my life Aclara Testament when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who smiled more than the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, I want you to think about that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam carried the hand carried the burden of his own man more than anyone else will soon allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam suffered when anyone suffered the Prophet salallahu Salam

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

could hear the complaining of the animals.

00:15:02--> 00:15:40

Still the prophets lie some smiled. The prophets lie some buried his children. Still he smiled. Salalah Harney was salam. The prophets lie some suffered from such extreme poverty that he had to tie a stone to his stomach. Still, he smiled sallallahu alayhi wa sallam still when I showed the Allahu Allah Allah Allah says that the Prophet sighs I'm used to come home, he did not come home sad He didn't come home bringing the ham bringing that this stress that he had on the outside into his house. She said she said Will the Allah Tala and that the prophets lie Selim used to be full of laughter when he came home, always making jokes, always bringing joy to the house. He didn't bring a

00:15:40--> 00:16:20

heavy presence to the house. He brought a an uplifting presence to the house sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because he had that balance or the his Salatu was Salam. He understood that when Omar cleavable The Allahu taala, and he says that in a culture where we used to mourn our dead for months and years anniversaries every month after someone passes away, anniversaries every single year after someone passes away, the types of practices that signified death and mourning muscle Allah salAllahu Alaihe Salam prohibited us from mourning our dead ones more than three days except for a widow for husband, four months and 10 days. That doesn't mean that you don't feel sadness after that. But

00:16:20--> 00:17:02

Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam understand that you need to move forward, not move on. You don't move on from Ramadan, you move forward with Ramadan. You don't suddenly move on from those knights of tilba that you just had those knights of repentance and say all of that is done. You move forward with it. And when you bury a loved one or you bid farewell to someone that you love, you move forward, not on from them forward with them. You carry the lesson you carry a new unlocked level of Taqwa and reverence of Allah subhanaw taala. But you have joy, you have joy, Allah commands it. Allah subhanaw taala commands you to thank him And subhanAllah the equivalent of E to

00:17:02--> 00:17:46

Ramadan, dear brothers and sisters, is when you finish your Salah and when you finish your Salah, the first thing you do is you say a stuff that Allah stuff and Allah stuff that Allah Yadav Forgive us. Forgive us for our deficiency in this prayer. But then you say Allah Allah Anta Salam wa Minkus salaam to Bharatiya dal Jalali will come, Oh Allah, you are peace. You are peace and from you is peace from you is peace, as if to say that Subhanallah the peace that I just found in this prayer as salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah peace to everyone that is to my right, and peace to everyone and everything that is to my left Allah Allah Anta Salam, I'm full of a sense of salam from Eunoia

00:17:46--> 00:18:26

Allah, there is something that came through this prayer. Likewise, when it comes to hajj, there is a celebration after the day of alpha. Can you imagine the tears of the prophets lie some in his companions on the day of alpha, the most sinful of people, when they go on the day of alpha will find a way to cry. Can you imagine the prophets I summon his companions on the day of alpha, but once they move forward, they said the same thing that we say today, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illa Allah, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, when Allah al HEMTs, they praise him, and they thank him. And they said, hamdulillah for these moments of joy, their brothers and sisters,

00:18:26--> 00:19:04

we have a deen that gives us optimism, a religion that teaches us to be joyful, to be happy, not heedless, to be grateful, not greedy to see the best of everything in every situation that is put in front of us, and to be able to say Alhamdulillah in every single situation, and Allah subhanaw taala did not even exempt did not even exempt our relationship with Him. Allah azza wa jal did not make it so that we would be crying on the day of our eat and wondering if I Ramadan was accepted, from the moment that the chawan Halal came in.

00:19:05--> 00:19:45

You transform that is too far that seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala into a moment of gratitude and joy. And we say yeah, Allah, we call upon you with certainty that you have accepted our Ramadan Baden Allah He to Allah, the Prophet sighs sunset other Allah wa and Tomoki Nona BT jabber call upon Allah certain in your DUA, Ya Allah as your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told that told us to call upon you with certainty.

And we ask

00:20:38--> 00:21:20
