Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh brothers and sisters in Islam Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our worship. I mean, I pray you had a fruitful first fast and ask Allah to bless all our fasts that remain during this month. I mean, and except all our worship during the day and during the evening, I mean, the audible and I mean, you know what we learn so much today in the turabi. There were so many lessons who panela and perhaps one that stood out

00:00:29--> 00:00:29

for me,

00:00:31--> 00:01:02

is the I will losses will entitle Vartan Kalia, who do well and Asara had to be army letter home. We Allah says that the People of the Scripture they'll never ever, ever be pleased with you never ever be accepting of you never, ever consider you as part of their circle, until and unless you follow their way in completion, until and unless you follow the paradigms, you make their paradigms, your paradigms, you make their values, your values you make their civilization, your civilization you make

00:01:03--> 00:01:16

their norms, your norms, until then, they'll never ever be accepting of you. And I think this stood out for me because it also has a relationship to the lesson we took last night about change, for the sake of change does not actually change.

00:01:18--> 00:01:19

Brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

How many of us today

00:01:25--> 00:01:29

do everything in our capacity to be different

00:01:30--> 00:01:36

from the sun, for the sake of trying to appease

00:01:38--> 00:02:24

people of other countries and other civilizations. Alright, how many of us go out of our way to make their ways our way? We want to dress like them, we want to speak like them, we want to act like them. We want to have the hairstyles, right? We want to speak the lingo. We want to have, you know, whatever is trending with them, we want it to trend with us. Right? And we actually consider success and failure based on how much we can adopt or not from the mannerisms of values and paradigms in our brothers and sisters in Islam. The beginning of misguidance starts when you become in or of other ways

00:02:25--> 00:03:11

at the expense of of being in awe of the sun. Right? If you look at idol worship, it came to the Arabian Peninsula, when one of the inhabitants of the Arabian Peninsula went to these lands where they had amazing architecture and amazing trade. And they had what they considered a civilization and this person was in awe of it. And he saw them worshipping these idols and he decided that you know what, let me take one of these idols back with us perhaps it will bring to us the civilization that I am in off here in this place. So Pamela, and as time went on, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrives and the same Quraysh they say, Are you telling us to live that which our four

00:03:12--> 00:04:00

fathers did? Yes, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was telling them to leave the norm of their forefathers worshipping this idol. And also the norm of being in awe of other civilizations, and other rules and regulations, aside of the civilization and the rules, rules and regulations of revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he sent with his messengers, you know, when there'll be no armor stood in front of them in this, this grand setting and palatial with this palatial and the ambience, and obviously before he he gets into the policy, seeing the civilization, of the people that he was amidst at the time, but Subhanallah he's not in all of it. He's not going to be swept

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

the Why? Because he is in all of the suddenness of realization the way of Mohammed Abdullah Salalah alayhi wa sallam so when wisdom 10s demon says, You know what is brought you out of the desert? What is brought you in front of me, you've left the desert you've come here what what what do you want Subhanallah because the civilizations at the time never considered the Arabs of civilization. They were a bunch of desert bandits in the middle of the desert that had nothing and you know, we have no interest in this place. So what has brought him in this group from this place to my palace? What do you want

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

you know, those Muslims that they never said oh, we came to see your buildings and to see your wealth and your treasures and and your idols and, and your your economy? No, not at all. Not at all. He says now can we've come to the origin a bad to remove the bet to remove the worshippers to remove this evidence of Allah from worshipping

00:05:00--> 00:05:32

created to worshiping the creator of everything created. Yes, we've come to, to remove you from your oppressive policies and the policies of systems outside of the Quran and Sunnah and bring you to the justice of Islam, the justice of the civilization and norms and ways and paradigms of the Quran and Sunnah La Ilaha Illa. Allah brothers and sisters in Islam action point for this evening.

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

We need to ponder over ourselves

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

are we a people that, you know,

00:05:43--> 00:05:46

subconsciously without realizing we're actually

00:05:48--> 00:06:02

doing things to, to fit in with other civilizations at the expense of the sun? How do we dress? How do we speak? What are our values? What do we hold sacred to us? Right? what upsets us what makes us happy? Right?

00:06:03--> 00:06:46

And then look at those answers and see if you find them in the center. And if not in the center, they know and understand you will find them somewhere else. And if that is the case, that Hampton is not too late this way Ramadan is here. Ramadan is here to help us come back. Yvonne is here to recalibrate us at hamdulillah. So use Ramadan, To fix this, to seek forgiveness from Allah and Rick to recalibrate the thought to recalibrate the heart to recalibrate the soul. Right use the month in the best way possible for our success because that is what this month has come it's a gift from a lot to help us go to Jana. And the way to gender is via the Sunnah of the Prophet the scholars

00:06:46--> 00:06:51

called the sweetness Athena to Naja it is it is the ship of

00:06:52--> 00:07:16

it is it is a savior, it is a ship that is a savior for those that are on it. The sooner the better. Right in English we say the sooner the better. Yes, the sooner you upon The sooner, the better. I love you all for the sake of Allah please remember me and my family and your daughter. Until next time. Ciao bella Lamanna woman consult Allah. Amen. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
