In Islam, we are gathered here today it is a day of celebration.
It is the day that we got into thank Allah subhanho wa Taala
for blessing us to reach the conclusion of Ramadan, a month in which we fasted a month of prayer amongst the introspection
amongst the heightened awareness of a loss of cannibal which Allah
and a month in which we
put our best foot forward striving to attain tough one
to gain Allah subhana wa tada his favorite and so we think Allah subhanho wa Taala for hating us so that we may be thankful and so we thank Allah subhana wa tada for this opportunity to start freshman sophomore on avanade men and what to seven will feel a level match up at the moment then between whoever faster the month of Ramadan exclu faith to Allah subhana wa tada and seeking his reward, then all of his previous sins will be forgiven and that is truly a blessing from Allah subhana wa tada and that is why we also seek refuge with Allah subhanho wa Taala. We seek His protection on this day, Mennella Holy Bible code, the mechanical abuse of the law, it was something you're
at which either the daddy the Prophet I did select was Sudan used to seek refuge with ALLAH subhana wa tada meenal Holy Bible code. And this is something that's important to understand brothers and sisters in Islam, you know that someone wraps their turban around their head, or you see a system puts their schema on. That's called l code. It's when it's wrapped up. It's when it's tight, it's when it's in order, it's when it's in place, and how it is when it falls out of place. And so, a towel with the prophets like Selim seeking refuge from an howery battle code is that a lot is that the province like sentiment seeking reference with the last panel of data from going back to a state
of disarray after having been fixed and as he returned to the rocky mobile low tide it says that this means that you go back to a state of disobedience after our lives with gel has guided you to his obedience we spent a month worshiping Allah subhana wa tada striving to the best of our abilities, it would be a shame to go back to the person that you were before the month of Ramadan, simply because the month of Ramadan is over.
gathered and we prayed together we'll come to the lab
and we are listening to these words that are based on the book of Allah subhana wa tada and the Sunnah of our Prophet Isaiah select with them. And we are gathered, because Allah Subhana which Allah has guided us to recognize
what it is that we are living for, what this life is really about. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the Quran,
when masala genuine is a hilarya balloon, that he has only created the jinn and mankind to worship Him. Whoever fulfills that purpose in life, they will find tranquility in their hearts. They will be content with whatever Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed for them because they're either going to be living one of Allah Subhana which is blessings and thanking him for them. Or they're going to be going through a trial in they're going to be patient and they're going to be thinking the loss of power dialing for guiding him to that patience through whatever trial that is that they're going through. And they recognize as our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said late silvina I can't
watch a lot of when I can, Alina loves that true wealth is not that you have a lot of material things. But that true wealth is that you have contentment in your hearts. And they therefore
gain true success in this life. Because they have peace of mind. And they are at one with their creators to Canada with Adam. Just like they have success in the hereafter because that's what they strive for. In the devil ask you about today he'll haiwan locanto the dog the next life. The Hereafter is the real life if they only knew those who do not fulfill that purpose. They're going to wander aimlessly.
In life, busying themselves looking for something that is going to fill the void in their heart because they don't have a connection with the loss of habitat. So you have to recognize as a Muslim, that you praise Allah subhana wa tada because those questions are answered for us the questions that the philosophers have debated timelessly and endlessly for 1000s of years, who created us, why are we here? And where are we going? Allah subhana wa tada has answered all of those questions for us in no uncertain terms and a Muslim lives a life that is dignified and honor, based on the fact that they are worshipers of Allah subhanahu wa tada and therefore Ramadan serves for us.
It serves for us as a habit forming a habit forming reminder of that worship of Allah subhana wa Tada. Our worship of the lucky that stopped in the month of Ramadan, we can't be Ramadan Muslims, that's not okay. by any stretch of the imagination. We the lord of Ramadan, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Lord of the rest of the 11 months. And Ramadan is simply a time to train. It is a time that we go through a serious period of reflection and purification, so that we can strive for the rest of the year until we make it to the next Ramadan when Allah subhanho wa Taala puts us back to that training again. And you know that you train harder than the actual event. And so the struggle
continues. The 11 months of the year, it's not something that starts in the month of Ramadan. Though it may be heightened, though it may be heightened during the month of Ramadan Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, brothers and sisters in Islam, a Salah, safe guard your prayers, Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed you in this month, you may have been a person who struggled with celestial pleasure, but in the month of Ramadan, because Salatin fetchit is right after so many of the people who struggle with budget, we're making a lot of fun in the month of Ramadan. Don't let that die. Don't let those good habits that you've built in the month of Ramadan,
die, the salaat Allah Subhana which Allah has commanded us with establishing the prayer over 80 times in the Quran, and Allah subhana wa tada says we're happy to either Salatu was Salam Mustafa safe guard your prayers, and especially the middle prayer meaning Salaam to Lhasa and that is the connection. Our prayer is the connection between us and Allah subhana wa tada and it is that distinguishes the believer from the non believers our Prophet it is selected with Salim, do not ever leave off Juma for those men who have to pray tomorrow. Don't leave off selection to mine. Don't leave off praying in the Jamaat in the congregation as much as you can. Our profit idea select with
sedan said in the night yet who did minelute 100 mil casia that the wolf only eats the lone sheep. If you are alone sheep, you are a Muslim who only prays by yourself all of the time, that's what's going to happen. You're going to start missing them, you're not going to safeguard your prayers.
And that is why it is so important that you build community through your prayer. The Prayer is the first ritual obligation that Allah subhana wa tada prescribed to find his profit before his account, and before fasting and before hides and before all of the other things that have been obligated upon this month. The prayer was obligated and it was the way of all of the prophets who preceded us, Allah subhanho wa Taala to Moosa. We're up the Miss salata the victory, and establish the prayer from my remembrance when the Khalifa and the Emir of the movie named Omar Ali along with China and who was stamped, when he was on his deathbed, the first thing that he said was a salad, a salad that
was the first thing that he thought about, and our Prophet is allowed to sit in commanded us to tell our children to pray at the age of seven, you have to encourage your children to pray, don't wait until they 13 and then 14 when that pen is writing, and they are accountable in front of Allah subhana wa tada because they you have neglected your duty to call them to the most important obligation of Islam after the obligation of the Shahada team and that is the prayer Allah, Allah will let you know in the love
