Along with a little cameo up but how did he learn because you know, it was kind of like the book and I'll tell you I'll see bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla you know that you know more along the lines of money that enhance the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is to listen to the short 1015 minutes as part of the lead prayer May Allah subhanaw taala make this for him chose were accepted on this day and move on to our brothers and our sisters here and all around the world. All praise is due to a loss of power to Allah. We asked Allah subhanaw taala to send His peace and His blessings upon this messenger Mohammed salah, long writing masala and all who follow Him until the

00:00:57--> 00:01:43

end of times along the journey. We will also Pilate accept your efforts, your fasting, your hard work throughout these first 10 days of the angel. This is a day of festivities. This is a day of happiness. And as we believe as Muslims that you can be cited as an act of worship to get closer to Allah when you're thinking about happiness as well as an act of worship and we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to grant us the happiness the side of this life and the next life Allahumma Amin there is a greater happiness there is an eternal happiness when the believers meet Allah subhanaw taala in the next life there's no comparison to that moment. Would you wouldn't Yoma even now, Isla Rob beha now

00:01:43--> 00:02:24

Vera the faces will be seeing Allah subhanaw taala and these faces will be radiant and bright brothers and sisters. Please allow us inshallah Tada for the next 10 minutes without any noise so that the brothers and sisters around you can listen can benefit allow us to explore just one specific thing inshallah Tada. Imagine the believers entering Jana May Allah make us from amongst them Allahumma Amin and as they take the first steps into Jannah Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran about the reaction, what will they say Alhamdulillah Praise be to Allah Alhamdulillah Allah you sada Kanawa Al Hamdulillah Hilary Hidin early her the woman could nearly Natalia Lola and

00:02:24--> 00:03:00

her done Allah praise me to the one who guided us to this without Allah we would not be here without Allah subhanaw taala we would not exist without Allah subhanho wa Taala we would not be guided to Islam. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us and keep us guided Allahumma Amin. This is a day of happiness. And despite the fact that we all have struggles, and there are many people suffering here and all around the world of our brothers and our sisters, may Allah alleviate their affairs Allahumma Amin despite that fact, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam struggled, the companion struggled and many people are struggling today. And yet this is a day of festivities while

00:03:00--> 00:03:38

praying for them while thinking about them while working for the relief as well and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to utilize us for the benefits of others Allahumma Amin recently when we were taking groups for Hajj, may Allah allow us all to go for an accepted hygiene hombre Allahumma Amin, there was a beautiful phenomenon I want to share with you I noticed with my group every year, the very last thing you do in Mecca before you leave and this is what will happen in the next few days as our brothers and sisters are hudge are leaving. It's called the farewell to off. And as they are leaving this is supposed to be the final act of worship. I noticed something interesting in myself

00:03:38--> 00:04:21

and in my group. I noticed that even though your energy hudge rises and falls and sometimes it's very difficult. Once you get to the last tawaf there's a new energy, there's a new dedication. I like to call this the farewell effect why we have a precedence for this in our religion. I noticed the people in the group are now making more dua, they're more passionate, they care a lot more now that hajj is coming to an end, what you thought is far away the end of Hajj, what you think is far away is now very close. The opportunity is about to leave. So what do you do? Naturally, you cherish the time you cherish the opportunity. Likewise, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us

00:04:21--> 00:04:58

something very important. In an authentic hadith, a man comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said, Ya rasool Allah, I eliminate Whoa, just teach me something but make it concise. Teach me something brief. Why the man wants to be able to practice the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, peace be upon him said three things. And if you take these three things, you've taken an abundance of height. The first the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, either interfere Salah Tikka Masala salata, Muhammad Darren, when you stand to pray every time you pray the five prayers throughout the year and other prayers as well. When you stand to pray, pray the prayer of the one

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

who's bidding farewell

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

What does that mean? pray the prayer of the one who believes this is my last salah. This is my final chance on Earth to pray to the One who created me and now I will return to Him. If you thought you were praying your last prayer, would you really rush? Can you imagine any of our loved ones, any of our brothers and sisters who departed before us? If they were with us today? And they could see that this was their last salah the final prayer they had. Do you think they would rush the salah? Do you think they would skip a prayer? Do you think they'll be distracted in Salah thinking about something else? No, because they believe this is their final prayer. One of the greatest pieces of advice, if

00:05:38--> 00:06:19

you want to focus in life is this concept of bidding farewell. We had a brother, a beloved brother here in the Michigan Community was diagnosed with cancer and this has happened many times to our brothers and our sisters. May Allah grant us all Aafia and may Allah grant her brother and sister she felt this particular brother mentioned when he was told he had several months left to live. He said I felt more alive than ever before, spiritually, why? He said, I remember this hadith. Now when I talk to my family, when I talk to my children, when I interact with community when I read the Quran, when I pray my salah, I really believe this is my last chance. So I make the best of it. Can

00:06:19--> 00:06:55

you imagine if you made this a habit, how happy you will be how happy your relationships will be? How happy Allah will be with you, when you depart from this world, knowing that you did the best that you could. The second piece of advice from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said, Do not say anything today for which you must apologize later. Do not say something today to Teddy Roman, who you have to apologize meaning what? Think before you speak. So many of our relationships between parents and children, between husband and wife, between friends and community members and relatives would be so much better. If we were just to pause and think, Is this something that is

00:06:55--> 00:07:33

pleasing to Allah? Or is this something I will regret later on? Will I have to apologize? Well, I have to say sorry, well, I have to ask for forgiveness. Think before you speak to your parents, to your spouse, to your children to others, and you will be the happiest of people in terms of relationships. And the third the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, What do you mean ready yet? So I'm Murphy ad nurse and give up any desire to have what other people have. One of the main reasons people are affected today in their mental health is because they are not grateful for what they have because they're constantly looking at what somebody else has. She has this he has that

00:07:33--> 00:08:09

they're following people online influencers, social media, who are you watching? Are you following, all they're showcasing is their worldly material possession. So when you see people advertising more than what you have, your Eman might be affected by that. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to do the opposite. Look at those who have less than you, you will be much happier and content with what you have. Let us be cautious with this. Now what I want us to take from this the farewell effect when you wake up every day believe this could be my last day. So let me cherish it. Let me value this time. Let me value the relationships that Allah subhanaw taala gave me let me pray

00:08:09--> 00:08:50

each prayer knowing today could be my last day and hopefully by the will of Allah subhanaw taala this will be a reason for you to die in a good state. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us that we all say in these last 10 days you've heard a lot. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illa Allah, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar when Allah Hill hunt, as we make tech be wrought, as you say, Allahu Akbar, as 2 billion Muslims in the world are living upon Allahu Akbar, in billions in terms of quantity in terms of how many times it's been said, we need to live upon it as well. When you say Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater, Allah is greater than my desires, greater than our distractions,

00:08:50--> 00:09:27

greater than other people, greater than our fears and opposition. Allah is greater than the enemies of those who are harming the believers all around the world. When you say Allahu Akbar, it means you are living upon it, you know, Allah is watching you. And because you know who Allah is, your character is the best of character. The way you treat your spouse, your parents and your children is a proof of how much you believe Allahu Akbar, the way you pray, your Salah is a proof How much do you believe Allahu Akbar, the way you dress in terms of modesty, men and women in terms of what Allah commanded is a proof of Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater than other people's validation other

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

people's desires and other people's thoughts. And on this note, I actually want to specify this part of the hutzpah for our youth for the young Muslims. May Allah subhanaw taala bless all of our young Muslims all around the world. Allahumma Amin, many youth today are raised in an environment that is different than their parents, even if the parents are in the same country that their children are growing up in. And oftentimes parents are not aware of this. The Times change, technology changes, culture, shifts norms come and go

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

And as these changes come about, there will be new struggles that every generation will deal with. This has always been the case. But with the advent of technology and social media, and the quick, rapid changes in beliefs in society, we must be more aware of the influences on the developments of people, adults, and especially youth as they are developing. So parents who want to be aware and those who want to be parents and even the youth themselves should be aware of this. There needs to be communication, transparency between parents and their children, about what is happening in the world, about the struggles in the world, about the different things in society that no doubt, no

00:10:37--> 00:11:10

doubt, if you don't talk to your children about them, I promise you they already know about them from somewhere else. They are learning about them from many other places. And we all know this young and old we all know this. We are exposed to so many things. Today, we need to talk about what's right and wrong. We need to talk about why these things should be avoided. Why this thing is pleasing to Allah and why this thing is hated to Allah subhana wa Tada because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yet to other nurses a man or sabe to feed him Allah Dini he Kelapa the island John, a time will come upon the people we are living in this time today, a time will come

00:11:10--> 00:11:47

upon the people in which the one who is holding on to his or her religion, with patience with patience with patients is like the one who's holding on to a hot coal, meaning it's not always going to be easy. If you're a young Muslim living in America today, you already know this. It's not always going to be easy to say I am a Muslim. It's not always going to be easy to say I don't do this. And I don't do that. You know, it's not always going to be easy to stand out because you're wearing the proper hijab. We're praying a proper prayer. It's not going to be easy. Sometimes. The criticism is not even from non Muslims, sometimes it's from our community, sometimes it's from your family. Allah

00:11:47--> 00:12:24

subhanho wa Taala wants us to turn to Him, to hold on to him to the connection with him, is starting to be Sabri, was Salah with perseverance, trying to perseverance in terms of what you're able to do and hold on to and prayer, turning to Allah subhana wa Tada and asking Allah subhanaw taala for st karma for steadfastness, it's not always going to be easy. Many youth today are exposed to many things that hurt them and harm them in their mental health. And they are affected but they don't open up to their parents and their parents are not initiating these conversations, that youth are not initiating these conversations. The problems oftentimes are not resolved. And so I urge the

00:12:24--> 00:12:59

parents to be a little more open. If your son, if your daughter comes to you with a problem, a mistake that they've made, don't make them regret coming to you. Let them know that yes, maybe there's a consequence, discipline, whatever, maybe but right now, they've come to you with a problem. They're turning to you for safety and security for redemption and change. Who are we to push them away? If Allah subhanaw taala accepts Toba from the one who commits should and becomes the Muslim from the one who was slacking off and started to pray than what about your child when they've made a mistake and they come to you and say I made a major mistake. May Allah subhanaw taala protect

00:12:59--> 00:13:33

our youth all around the world to the youth a reminder here, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said hi to compel you to complete at the best of you are those who are best to their families. Be bused to your parents, parents, be best to your children, for they have rights upon you as well. be best to your relatives be best to your uncles and your aunts and your cousins have the best of manners how you to come how you to calmly early. This is the command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for all the young Muslims have a high standard for yourself, no matter what you see in society. No matter what you see in the world of pressures, you have something that the world is in

00:13:33--> 00:14:11

need of the problems around us in the world can be resolved through what you have of Islam. So have a high standard for yourself and hold on to it. Number two, remember, religious knowledge is light, the knowledge of the Quran of Allah subhanaw taala and the things that improve your character will Allah He it is liberating. In this day and age in which people are intellectually confused in the age of post truth and post modernism. It is beneficial for you and the world around you to know your religion, you have a high standard you want a PhD in a secular field, go for it, but don't have a low standard for the knowledge that will help you and your athlete as well. And that will save many

00:14:11--> 00:14:36

other people in society. And number three, always keep good company always keep good company and that might be the thing that protects you from going astray and stay active and benefiting other people in serving society in serving Allah subhanaw taala is cause all around the world we ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless our youth and accept random seek forgiveness from Allah Akula Cody ha That was stopped for a while do not confess stuff you do in the whole of a photo Rahim.

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar Allah. Allah Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah Allah Hill hunt, brothers and sisters we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to accept from us. Invest, invest, invest in your youth in your family, invest in time with them, that is quality time, the time that they have

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

Have we all have with devices is not time that benefits the family in general, let us connect as families in this era of individualism let us become more connected than ever before and appreciate the time that you have with your parents or your spouse or your children before that time runs out because eventually that time will run out. So enjoy these days cherish these days, cherish these moments for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. Number two, keep investing in the youth of your community and the youth of your family. Because it takes today and OMA to raise a child, it really does. And for the youth, you can be part of the process as well make it easier for your parents to

00:15:37--> 00:16:12

understand what's happening to understand your struggles and express your concerns. And number three, to the youth love your parents love your family members appreciate the good that they've done. We learn about the sacrifices of Ibrahim alayhis salam during this time for his family. Why for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala so many of your parents have done so much. They've worked so hard to raise you in this society and to try to preserve Islam for you because they know its value. And because they love you. So you might not always understand why your parents are doing what they're doing, or asking you to do certain things or staying away from certain things. But a day

00:16:12--> 00:16:49

will come in which you might look back and say I understand it now. And I wish I was a little more appreciative. I wish I was a little more patient. At the end of the day. The greatest of gatherings in this life are the ones that we will reflect on in the afterlife meaning what the gatherings in which you mentioned, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada especially as a family. And then in Jannah The believers will be reflecting on the gatherings that they had in this world and say we remember when you used to call upon Allah subhanho wa Taala brothers and sisters to soften water Salah who were of Shu Salam o primo Brahma was seen on arhaan What a threemile giran was cry the other nikuman Tata ID com

Lord, you mean on this day, reach out to others and make them happy and appreciate what you have of Islam. Show it to your neighbors, Muslims and non Muslims. Reach out to those who cut you off and forgive them. And may Allah subhana alleviates our affairs and bring our hearts together. In addition, find those who are living alone, whether as single students or convert to Islam. Make sure you are not abandoning a single person in the

00:17:22--> 00:18:01

community for we are all one OMA and at the end of the day, live upon Allahu Akbar, with pride live upon Allahu Akbar with pride and you will die with something that is sweeter than anything else in this world.
