We are grateful to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for allowing us to gather here in the worship of Allah Subhan Allah, Allah, we are grateful and thankful to Allah, Allah Allah for allowing us to witness the month of Ramadan. We are grateful to Allah Who super had to like your Isla for allowing us to complete the month of Ramadan, we are grateful to Allah Jalla wa Ala for allowing us to pass the month of Ramadan, the prophets of Allah when he was sitting them said, but saw a lot of Allah Eva than what had been a whooping
them being the one who first the month of Ramadan, having faith in Allah and hoping for the reward than all of their previous sins will be forgiven. My brothers and sisters, we have glad tidings of the prophets of the love where I was telling them that if we fasted the month of Ramadan, not being perfect, not making sure we do every single thing that we plan to do, but trying, hoping, believing in Allah and hoping for the word of Allah subhanaw taala that our previous sins will be forgiven. My brothers and sisters, I want us to think about today, as a new day, as the first day of the rest of our lives a day on which we are reborn, a day in which we are cleansed from our sins, and we begin a
new life, post Ramadan after Ramadan, a day on which we have learned the lessons of the month of Ramadan where Allah, Allah Allah allowed us to do things in the month of Ramadan that we've never thought possible for ourselves. We fasted during the days, we pray during the night reciting or odd we helped one another we give charity unlike possibly we've ever given given charity before. This is an indication from Allah. This is proof from Allah for you. And for me, my brothers and sisters, that we have the capacity for an immense amount of good sometimes that she upon comes to us and tells us you can't do it. You can't be a good listener, you can't do this. You can't do that. You
can't pray five times a day. You can't do charity, all this stuff, you just can't do it. And we proved this she thought wrong. In the month of Ramadan. We proved our own knifes our own selves what our self is talking to us and telling us that we can't do it. In the month of Ramadan. We learned about brothers and sisters, that Allah has given us the capacity for so much good. And so today my brothers and sisters is a day of celebration a day and we sell a day hours we celebrate the success we have had in this previous month. My brothers and sisters today is a very, very special day. There are only two days in the whole year that are like today. You know the Companions came to the
province, some of them I live were selling them in Medina and they said the pagans have all these holidays and all these festivals and the prophets of Allah I think it was him that said Allah has replaced that for you with something which is much better. Are you going up how and even the day of have had that big of sacrificing the day effect on which is today my brothers and sisters, there is no celebration, like the celebration of today. We may have other holidays we may celebrate Mother's Day and this and that and anniversaries and birthdays and all that none of that comes close to the celebration of the day of eight because this is the only day along with the other half the day on
which we are rewarded by law for celebrating. We are rewarded by Allah for having fun. We are rewarded by Allah for reaching out to our brother
was insistent and enjoying this day. There is no other day other than today in April, on which we are rewarded simply for celebrating, being in the pleasure of Allah Subhan Allah to Allah. So this is a day of celebration. This is a day of thankfulness, and thankfulness, my brothers and sisters needs, that we reach out to those who may need us today, with a blessing that Allah has given to us, we reach out to our neighbors, we reach out to our friends. And first and foremost, we reach out to our families. So if there's a family member that you haven't spoken to in a long time, today is the day to reach out to them. If there's a family member that you haven't been upset at, or a friend
that can get them set up, if there's someone you're holding something in your heart against them, or there was some things have gotten in your heart. My brothers and sisters, today is the day to reach out and to make amends because the deep part of our temporal part of our piety is split out to one is to is to enjoy the ties of kinship. And my brothers and sisters today is a day also of unity, because they should have thought had been left free and know that the Shabbat is upset, he's upset because he spent the last month worshiping Allah we spent the last month our brothers and sisters coming together, coming together in this very Hall to worship Allah and the chiffon was upset. And
now the goal of the shacklock would be let me break them apart, let me cause problems and differences in arguments and fights. And this is a form of working hard. So we say that we've done this year upon We seek refuge in the law from the accursed, see upon, we made sure that our parts are binded together, because the strength of our community, my brothers and sisters does not lie in all of us agreeing because that will never happen. We will never always agree on everything. The strength of our community lies in coming together for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala was just a movie huddling in Germany, while others who come together hold on to the rope of Allah together and
Allah says, do not be divided. Allah does not say do not be different. Because we will be different. We will have differences. We all come from different backgrounds. But Allah says, do not be divided from what did not say when I was getting food. Do not be different. When I have differences. It's part of life. We're gonna have differences in the community, in our household in our families, it's part of life, but Allah says hold together to the local Allah and do not be divided. A Buddha Pocahontas the Fulani went up a little bit.
And humble anatomy as far as salam O Allah was study Latina was saying you don't even know what happened while you will find me
as it was the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I want to take just two minutes, if not less, to address my sisters that are here today to pray with us. The prophets I send them would make special time on the day agree to deliver a football to the women as well. And today I would like to do the same. My Sisters in Islam. First and foremost, I would like to say to you dissolvable
May Allah reward you with the best reward because indeed my sisters without you, our own math would be broken. Without you, our communities would be broken. Without you, our communities would not be able to face the challenges that it faces. The reality is that there are people out there, there are people in this society that wants to divide us on different levels. And sometimes they want to divide us by gender. They want to divide us as men and women. But Allah Husum how do i That brings us all together as believers, and we need you and you need us and that is the only way forward when I spoke about unity my brothers and sisters that includes our sisters, for us and for for most Allah
subhanaw taala specifically addressed the women in the Quran not because when Allah says yeah, that the the avenues that women are excluded, but perhaps someone may think that Allah is only speaking to the men. So Allah was how do I get out? I said, Oh, believing women, so that women understand that their role in our communities in our society is a vital role. And then as I said, Without you we will be broken. My sisters I also know that you you are not always appreciated. I know this because even as a man it is part of human nature that we don't always recognize the efforts that we are putting in for one another. But I watch the rumble reminds my sisters that Allah was kind of
like to hide I said even though my yet while you're still in the hola hola yo I got a voice in me that if you have tempo. If you're conscious of Allah, you're leading your life. It's submission to Allah and you have patience.
then know that Allah does not allow the reward of those who do good to be lost, even if men don't recognize it, even if your spouse and don't recognize it, even if your children don't don't recognize it, even if your community doesn't recognize it know that Allah agenda why Allah recognizes every ounce of effort that you have put in for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And that message is not only for my sisters, that message is for my brothers as well know that every ounce of effort that you put in for the sake of Allah is preserved by Allah who's who kind of like the Allah whether we get recognition in this life or not. So I ask Allah Spanish, Allah to grant a sincerity
as we have been working towards sincerity in this last month, I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make all of our deeds purely for the sake of Allah agenda when I asked Allah subhanaw taala to grant us the best of this life and the next life I am the one who said how do I get out of audit and make this a month in which our sins were forgiven? A month I wish we were free from the Hellfire a month in which we attained the baraka blessings that will remain for the rest of the year ha that will follow to Allah and I'm really looking for Barack Obama with no income please get up and greet one another and lo and
