Mostly moon. All praise is due to Allah, the Exalted, we praise Him we seek His help his guidance and his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils within ourselves and the evils of our sins. Whomsoever Allah guides, there is no Miss guidance for him and whomever he rightfully causes to be led astray, there is no guidance for him.

00:01:18--> 00:01:30

And I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah alone. Now bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam peace be upon him, is His servant and final messenger.

00:01:31--> 00:02:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us in the Noble Quran, what is translated as, Oh you who believe, be conscious of Allah as he deserves for He is the Creator. Be conscious of Allah as he deserves, in public and in private amongst Muslims and non Muslims, whether you are with friends or family or strangers, be conscious of Allah wherever you are, and give him his right as is his right as the creator and do not die except in a state of submission. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to allow us to live upon that and to allow us to die upon la EDA in Milan. We welcome you. For the first time in three months to this message. It's first hopeless since March and we praise Allah subhana wa Tada

00:02:17--> 00:02:57

for this blessing. We praise Allah subhana wa Tada and we are optimistic and yet we are cautious we are safe, we are watchful, we are alert. We ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make us amongst the grateful Allama John lamina shuck it in Allah Amin. There are challenges and no doubt many challenges that some are experiencing more than others. And many have experienced during these times. Some people have experienced challenges and trials in their health. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us all our loved ones Schiefer some have lost loved ones may Allah subhanaw taala accept them as Shuhada as martyrs, Allah Amin, some had been tested in their livelihood in their income, some

00:02:57--> 00:03:36

had been tested with their children, some had been tested in there faith, may Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us resilient, enduring and reward us for our patients. Allahu Allah, Amin Allahumma Amin, we have experienced a most unique Ramadan, a most unique read a Ramadan in which many people realize they could do more from within their homes than they previously thought. And oh my god in which pedal we was revived and pm was revived in the homes all around the world, unlike any other time we have seen during our lifetimes, and the question is, what did we do during the most severe part of the lockdown? What were we doing when we had the opportunity to do more? Did we take advantage Did

00:03:36--> 00:04:15

we pass this test as it is still being unfolded? The lockdown is still in place in many different ways in many different places. When we put in effort, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to reward us, there will be a day in which many of us will look back and remember this prayer right here. There will be a day in which we will look back and remember inshallah in coming weeks and months, the prayers in the masjid with the gaps in between. And this brings me to the main point of the short reminder today and I have to keep this short in sha Allah, the topic of and the reminder of gratitude and freedom as shook. Well, Hurriya. How are these two intertwine? I'll mention three

00:04:15--> 00:04:58

points very briefly in sha Allah, gratitude and freedom. The first is gratitude for the blessing of being able to worship freely in this country, being able to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala without conditions, being able throughout our lives to pray in the masjid whenever we wanted. And yet, how often did we take advantage of that blessing we saw during COVID-19 and we see even today, the restrictions upon us, there is no blessing you have in this world that is permanent. And so the wise believer and the grateful believer seize the opportunity of freedom as a blessing that is not lasting, but one that must be taken advantage of today, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us

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

grateful for the misogyny

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

Long after this pandemic is lifted long after the lock downs are lifted all around the world. When we talk about the freedom to pray in the masjid

00:05:10--> 00:05:51

and the gratitude we should have for praying the massages. We reflect to number one on appreciation for the massage after COVID-19 as well. How many of us will come back and find Sakina and Raha just sitting in the masala just sitting in between prayers listening to Hawala enjoying the programs here connecting socially in this blessing Duma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make this amongst those who are sincere to our claim that we miss the misogyny so that when this lockdown is lifted, we are back in the masajid regularly, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep our hearts attached to his houses, Allah, Allah Amin and the second reflection with

00:05:51--> 00:05:52

regards to the masajid.

00:05:53--> 00:06:09

Think about the brothers and sisters all around the world who are oppressed for saying Allah you know, Lola, and do not have access to masajid because they believe in Allah and it is not because of COVID-19 that they cannot pray in the masjid. It is because of their Islam.

00:06:10--> 00:06:53

And when they hear the entire world the entire Ummah talking about their sadness with regards to the closing of the massage during this pandemic, they say what about us throughout the year and throughout many years and decades, wishing to just pray in some places in East Turkistan in the concentration camps. They've told us many of the refugees and survivors that if we were to pray, even sitting on a chair, barely making any movements, that person would disappear, that person would be taken, wearing the hijab is forbidden. Appearing as a Muslim is forbidden. How many of us living in a land like this, appreciate that we have the blessing to practice Islam as we want. And yet we

00:06:53--> 00:07:31

see Unfortunately, many of our youth and many adults as well sadly, losing their identity and rather losing their religiosity over time living in a land with many options, living in a land in which we have the freedom to choose. We ask Allah subhana wa Tada to allow us to be appreciative and grateful for the blessing of Islam and the ability to practice Islam and we reflect on those who are kicked out of their homes and those who are oppressed for saying Allah Allah, Allah Allah, wishing to be in our shoes, wishing to be able to wear the hijab, wishing to be able to pray in the houses of Allah, may Allah make us grateful and allow us to work for their cause, Allah Amin. Number two,

00:07:32--> 00:08:15

we reflect today on the blessing of health out of fear and the blessing of loved ones. And we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to preserve our health and to preserve our loved ones, Allah Amin, many of our community members have passed away during this pandemic. And some have passed away right before this pandemic. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept them as shahada We ask Allah Subhana Allah to elevate the ranks and to grant our families patients Aloma Amin, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep their families patient so they are rewarded as well Allah Allah Amin and we are reminded that whatever you have of health, it is not guaranteed. And whatever we have of relationships and family

00:08:15--> 00:08:57

members and loved ones, it is not guaranteed. Everything belongs to Allah, in everything returns to Allah. And that reality, the reality of our mortality. The reality that we will return to Allah is one we cannot forget, especially during this pandemic, Inna LilLah we belong to Allah, we're in Iran, Iran and to Him is our inevitable return. The more we are attached to our privileges and blessings without utilizing them without cherishing them without cherishing relationships, without asking Allah for the preservation of our health, and our families and our loved ones, the more we lose out on the blessing of gratitude there after May Allah subhanaw taala keep us grateful. And

00:08:57--> 00:09:33

there's one ayah that perfectly summarizes all of the different types of trials during this pandemic. The idea we hear often the one we will recite in the prayers well in sha Allah, what Allah blue one no Combi che immunol hope you will Jewry went up so middle and while he will unfussy what Thermalright what Bashir is Sabreen Alladhina Edo Saba Tomasi, but don't call you in Rila he were in a in a urology room, ALLAH SubhanA. Allah tells us that we will be tested in different ways through fear and the loss of loved ones the loss of agriculture and food and so on and so forth, and give glad tidings to those who are patients who are the patients they are those who say to Allah we

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

belong, and to Him is our return. And the last point in sha Allah is gratitude with regards to safety and security. How many of us are grateful for the ability to live without worrying about our lives ending due to injustice and oppression around us? But how many of us are truly safe, regardless of your skin color, regardless of a person's background, ethnically their language even around us?

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

As people's religions win, we are living in a society, especially today, and we are commemorating this Juneteenth for those who do not know, the 19th of June, the oldest celebration of the end of slavery in this country. And yet, and yet as we talk about freedom, one type of freedom was or rather, one type of slavery was disguised and replaced with another form of systemic racism, one that is embedded in the policies of this country. And if you are not aware, you must be made aware. If you are not aware, watch the documentaries, do the research, talk to people, because this is part of what is happening today to a big part of the population, and it affects every single one of us.

00:10:43--> 00:11:21

And so when you see something like the prison industrial complex, or police brutality, significantly affecting the black community more than anyone else in this country, we cannot remain silent as Muslims and we will refuse to remain silent as Muslims. Because any type of injustice in every time and every place affects us as Muslims and requires us to step up to the plate that is a part of our belief system. We ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make us amongst those who are working for the end of oppression and the end of injustice in this country, and to make us amongst those who are actively part of the solution. Rather than standing on the sidelines. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us

00:11:21--> 00:12:08

amongst the people of justice. They are people that are beloved to Allah will oppose Cebu be just in Allah, your headwind, OxiClean Allah loves those who are just under greatest freedom and I will end on this note, with the first Hotbot the greatest freedom, beyond all worldly freedoms is to be free and liberated. Of all worldly desires to be liberated, of being shackled, being shackled by social secular trends and the worship of Wands However, once desire and rather submitting to Allah subhanho wa Taala freedom is to liberate yourself from the expectations of the creation and to submit to the expectations of the Creator. Because those who are free by worshipping Allah in this world in the

00:12:08--> 00:12:47

next life, they will express gratitude and they are the only people who express gratitude when the people of Jana intergender May Allah make us all amongst them. I want you to reflect as we came out of our homes today. And as the lockdowns are lifted in coming months in sha Allah at a quicker pace, as people come out and reunite, Inshallah, in good places like this, we want to imagine and hope for and pray for and work for the day in which we come out of the graves, the day in which we are standing before our Lord, the day in which we are given an ease into paradise May Allah Subhana Allah make this amongst the people of Ghana. And as the people of gender enter Jannah their first

00:12:47--> 00:13:01

words are the first are the words of gratitude. Alhamdulillah he led the solder upon the Praise be to the one who fulfilled his promise to us. And Hamdulillah he led he had done he had wama

Saturday Allahu Allah, Allah praise me to the one who guided us to this without him we would not be guided Alhamdulillah he led he and her husband, praise me to the one who lifted this difficulty from us. If you are free in this world, by worshipping Allah alone, then you will enter Jannah May Allah make us amongst the people of Jana sing the words of praise, gratitude and freedom are intertwined. And the people who are truly free, are grateful for clarity are grateful for lights and they empower others to also achieve that gratitude and freedom. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst the people of Jannah make us truly free and may Allah Subhana Allah guide us to the highest levels of

00:13:46--> 00:13:51

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

Life of worldly shackles, of the expectations of the creation, let those who want to enter Jannah and the highest levels be consistent in their worship of Allah and gratitude to Allah throughout the year. Look at how quickly life changes. Look at how quickly the world changed. Look at how the economies of the world came to their knees. With something we cannot see with the naked eye.
