philippou bill badger was sad to McLovin

00:05:04--> 00:05:57

McLovin in 78 comes with joy it comes to put smile on our faces. Pratap isn't still happiness in our hearts. And no doubt happiness is something it is something that every human being recognize the value of it. But not only every human recognize the value of it, it is that's why and Islam recognize the importance of the concept of happiness and Islam through its legislations, the through the sinner own the practice of the prophets on them. The teaching of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us the real meaning of happiness, once one of the wisest scholars was asked, What would truly what would really happen to the person, if he gets truly to know Allah,

00:05:58--> 00:06:00

when a man out of Allah,

00:06:02--> 00:06:22

whoever truly knows, Allah would be always happy, we'll be out, we'll find the real meaning of happiness. That is people spend all their life, all their money, seeking happiness in this life. And in the end, they couldn't find it. I still remember someone came to me in this mustard,

00:06:24--> 00:07:12

who recently accepted Islam, and told me I did everything that you can even imagine seeking happiness. I have so much money, I did this. And I did that. And he mentioned things that I couldn't believe that this person will do all this and he said, all this are seeking to be happy. And the only time I found the true meaning of happiness, when they found my Lord, when I was able to come closer to him, there is a very famous, a scholar, by the name of a chef isleton bow is from Syria. When I was young, I ranked for him what I read something he wrote, and I thought it's so profound. He said about himself on h2 solera. When I was young, I was so attached to my father, so attached to

00:07:12--> 00:07:19

my father, I couldn't imagine a day that I would live without my father. But soon my father passed away.

00:07:20--> 00:08:07

And I was so sad. And I was raised by my older brothers, like the habits and the culture of the traditional people of a sham, you will live in the house, the Father, the older brother altogether. And he said, I always thought that I will never leave my brothers, and they will always be there for me to take care of me. But soon, I also lost my by my brothers, my older brothers, every one of them got married, and has his own life. And he said, and I got my own family. And when I had my wife and my children, I was so attached to them, that I never thought that they will come where I will lose my family or will be separated my family. My wife passed away. My daughters who only had daughters,

00:08:07--> 00:08:29

all of them got married. And they found in the end myself by my iPhone, in the end, that I'm by myself. He said, I realize that through the journey of my life, through this 70 plus years of my life, I found that the only one was always there with me. was always there for me. Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:08:31--> 00:09:07

And that's so beautiful, so inspiring. Make You Feel how great Lord that you have handled Manila. Luca Nashi Amina via Ramadan. We all felt that closeness to Allah subhana wa tada during the month of Ramadan. You know, what's the beautiful things about the beautiful things about the salute? The beautiful thing about calling upon your Lord, is that you feel under your lies, how close he is to you? How swift his answer is

in the law house in the middle of America, Rebekah Illallah

la vamos rybakina la Posada. And if you really want to know the the thing that bring you closest to Allah, Allah to Allah is Asana and it is a key for happiness in life. That's why I used to say, at a behavioural start the law, so be embraced and peace due to a new facade. The most beautiful and beloved thing to me to my heart. The process, Alan said, is a sauna. That's why Allah Subhana Allah said in the Quran, happy to Allah salatu wa salatu wa booster. Always be aware of the salon, fulfill the salon, perform the salon on the right time. Women RGB

00:10:01--> 00:10:21

One of the amazing things in the Quran and Allah Amara bitcomet the salaat sebata, Shara merata Quran way that I meant was that Anika taka akula. Meanwhile, ala Sabbath Ashoka, Allah subhanaw taala 17 times in the Quran said, aka Massara

00:10:22--> 00:11:10

preferred the Salah 17 times, if you really if you think about it a little bit, you'll find that every Muslim pray 17 rock every day for Johor. Also, if you add them up to be 17 and it's 17 as it's for each Raka there is an order in the Quran, ordering you to perform the salaat in an album as Bobby sada, who will kerbin Allah, one of the most important element of happiness that you are closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. That's why I highly recommend each and every one of us to honor the Salah, and to respect the Salah. And to always make sure that to make sure that your children and your family care for it as much as you care and more.

00:11:13--> 00:12:00

Khadija, the obligatory the obligatory prayers and the volunteers prayers. Because, Suna salaat, can Harrison and Ferrara were in the outer Harris kariba, Matata, you're in for the soudan, the Senate and the center of the hub, the center thermography, Malaysia, which is I noticed that the young generation don't care for if you look at the older generation among us as Muslim, we have to medically pray similar to Asia, we pray some that look at that without even thinking even some people not very religious, they will still pray the Son of the Father. While you see unfortunately religious young men and religious young woman, they don't care for the son of the issue for the son

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

of the mother for the son of that treasure, and so on. And you realize that this cylinder attached to the Salah, it's like a guard for it. And if you let it go, soon your enemy can attack you to the core of your Islam which is as solid as the prophets of Salaam said in Modine, my brothers and sisters, one of the most important element of happiness, that you have a happy social life. That's really what bring happiness to the heart. And in Ramadan, we have tasted some of that we realize how beautiful it is to break your fast with your family to spend some time together driving to the master and driving back from the master. I know so many of us have spent a good amount of time with

00:12:47--> 00:12:50

their family during Ramadan, more than any month in the year.

00:12:52--> 00:13:17

And if you imagine how if this is will continue, how will bring happiness to the heart. Imagine if you spend time with your children to play with them. Spend more time average american is spent 18 minutes with their parents, they spend 18 minutes with their children. And I bet you anything that there is more than us who don't even spend 18 minutes every day with their children.

00:13:18--> 00:14:03

It will be a great it's will be one of the great reason for your happiness, to spend time with them. Play with them, read with them, walk with them, act together, share with them something that's beneficial. Maybe watching their game, or attending their game and spending time with them. Remember what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Carla, meaning a man to whom they allow him the best of you in their Eman out of the best of their families. And also socially not only in the family level with the community and that's something we realize that Ramadan, we come together spend more time together than any other month. And when we talk about happy social life, remember the

00:14:03--> 00:14:48

cardinal rule, which is what the prophets are some of them said a hip baryonic matter hubristic the cardinal rule in dealing with people and to make you successful in your social life. What the Prophet said, Love for your brothers, what you love for yourself, the way you like them to address you address them in the way you like them to think about you think about them, the way you like for them to treat you treat them and so forth. parlane nibio sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and mihnea Elif Elif, the believer is the one who easily to get along with and he easily can get along with people, my brothers and sisters, your happy social life. It doesn't bait is not necessarily based on

00:14:48--> 00:14:52

how people treat you. It's truly based on how you treat people.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

And I'll tell you what, also off the key element of happiness that we learned from Oban

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

Alexandra

00:15:02--> 00:15:31

Kula mccannon in San UK Thoreau a son and in a nurse Kula makara sada hayati. The more you give, the more you good to other, the more happiness you will find in your life. Those who live for themselves, they never will never taste the true meaning of happiness. But those who live for others are absolutely happy. They are the most happiest people. I still remember a young man and a young woman. I met them, Nika in New York,

00:15:32--> 00:16:03

or attended actually there nica in New York, and surprised me that their honeymoon was that they want to volunteer with Islamic Relief, to do some relief work in Africa together. And I asked them, it's kind of interesting choice of a honeymoon. And they said, that's what bring mostly Yeah, and that's what makes us happy the most is when we help with serve. Have you ever tried to do that to feel how it will be how it feels to be good to others and to help other people

00:16:04--> 00:16:23

and remember, when you do that, a lot will thank you for it. The prophets of Salaam told us that a man passed by a road and he found a branch with full of thorns, he removed it, nobody saw him, he want to do good to others. And Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah was grateful to him.

00:16:25--> 00:16:41

One of the reason of happiness as well is not necessarily to do something monetary or intangible to people it just to make them happy. make other people happy will make you happy. parlane nibio sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a humble Illa surah

00:16:42--> 00:17:20

one of the most beloved to Allah is to make your brother happy. Why not? is a karate Allah and Hippolyte man adhara honeybaked in Suren. lemmya de la lucha de la been doing an agenda. When someone make a family happy. Allah subhanaw taala will not be settled with any reward for this person, less than gentlemen. And Anna said Manila Pia ha ha Muslim. Be now you have Leah surah, who began when you see your brother and give him some news or information that make him happy. And that's your intention. sobre la jolla Matsuyama Allah will make you happy in the Day of Judgment.

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

My brothers and sisters in Ramadan, we felt the meaning of serving others, helping one another and doing good to others. And that's why after Ramadan or the end of Ramadan, we use a cattle photo. And it's ironic, have you ever thought about this, that in the cattle filter, even if you are poor, even if you're poor, but you have enough food for this day, you have to give the cattle football and other medicine even the poor they can give one another. So even the poor will get the chance and eat, to taste the sweetness of giving. The happiness of giving. That feeling and itself is so fulfilling.

00:18:03--> 00:18:30

My brothers and sisters, one of the most important elements of happiness in our life is to balance your life. That's why nebby salatu salam said in Arabic America, your Lord has a right over you well in many blessings. Your body has a right over you. We're in the Africa, Africa, Africa and your family has a right over you for up they couldn't let it happen. Give everyone their deserve do

00:18:31--> 00:19:14

and he said salatu salam approving when he said it was he said this. He approved that statements on the Larsson da and he said also salatu salam, the hamlet assata wasa the person will not be continuously in one state you one day it this doesn't work this way. Not Work, work, work, work. Doesn't work this way. Study, study, study, study, playing, playing, playing, playing, sleeping, sleeping asleep. That's not life. That's very boring life. And also is not a bad a worship worship. You basically praying and reading Quran not all the time. It has to be balanced. Unfortunately, so many of us forget to make a live while they're making a living.

00:19:15--> 00:19:25

Unfortunately, a lot of us they forget to make a live while they're making a living. They all work. There is no time for family, there is no time for themselves. My brothers and sisters,

00:19:26--> 00:19:59

it is important to balance our life. It's important not to care only for secular study and not to care for religious studies. It's important for us to be give time to work on time to family, time to family and time to the community. It's so important for us to balance the relationship between our friends and our family members to care for yourself and at the same time as you care for others to balance your relationship with money to balance the relation between the dunya and the Acura webtv matakohe. Darren Akira one

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

Latin samosa becoming a dunya. Ramadan taught us this, and eat, teach us that, that today, you cannot fast. Last night, you cannot pray to Allah. It's not the time for him to tend to go to sleep to attend to go to your family, the time to celebrate. My brothers and sisters, one of the last thing they want to mention in regards to this concept that I learned from Yvonne, that teach us the true meaning of happiness that really happened is happen. When you have a sense of accomplishment. Those who accomplish things in their life are happy people. And those who don't come wish things in their life. They don't really taste the true meaning of happiness. And Ramadan teaches this very

00:20:42--> 00:20:57

well. You see the amount of happiness that you have when you break your fast every day, when he comes, why? Because you can't push I fast in the old day. I fasted the whole month. That's a sense of accomplishment and make you so happy.

00:20:58--> 00:21:30

So my brothers and sisters, don't wait for things to happen. Make sure that you make them happen. You know, so many people tell me Someday Someday, last time I checked, we don't have someday. We have Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. I never heard of Sunday. You know, it's just that no sense of accomplishment. And because keep pushing it and delaying it and delaying it. That's not going to bring happiness to you. The longer you wait for the future, the shorter it will be.

00:21:32--> 00:21:53

The longer you wait for the future, the shorter it will be. So it's up to you to urge that accomplish things do and especially for your young children. Make them to feel that sense of accomplishment. So they have confidence in themselves. May Allah Subhana Allah make us among those happy all the time? Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar, Allah Allah.

00:21:58--> 00:22:44

Al hamdu lillahi Hamdan Catherine Toyoda Mubarak and fee and hamdu Lillahi kathira Subhan Allah He bukata wa sila Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah hunt. My brothers and sisters today is a day where to eat comes together in the foot and the day of tomorrow, which in itself, and this happened during the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And once once and he said to the companions, but that still might feel me come down to eat come in one day, he said salatu salam. And he said in regard to Juma prayer, he said femen Shah, Ximena Juma were in moodgym Moon, so whoever wish this will be sufficient for him to attend Juma prayer. But I will pray tomorrow and I will have tomorrow and

00:22:44--> 00:23:25

domestic in another word the prophets are some of them. Give them the permission not to pray tomorrow at that time if they attend the prayer and the hope of tomorrow and also been reported in more explicitly from hatidze to be our camera they allow on that the process olymptrade eat Tamara has often Giamatti pecan Mencia and you suddenly find you're suddenly after he prayed he tell people who ever wished to pray Juma can and whoever wish he is excused, but he or she must pray vocal. Okay, according to the vast majority of the Muslim scholars, even though the last 100 had is a different outcome, there's a lot of debate about the authenticity of it both reported by the amount.

00:23:26--> 00:24:16

Rahim Allahu taala. The hembree madhhab are the one who leads the among the scholars in saying that Juma I will not be obligated upon those who attended eight prayers and also the choice of Chateau Santi Mira Himalayan others, while you have in the other hand, some scholars stick to the principle which is an Juma is must and it must be attended. So the looked at that and that's why you will find the Hanafi and nomadic is they will say no even if you pray Juma. If you pray aid, you still have to come to Juma while the Shafi era Hey Mama love to Allah, because our community is so diverse for you to know the Shafi Rahim Allah said, If you live around the mustard, you must attend the Juma but if

00:24:16--> 00:25:00

you live in the supper, You are excused that's why if man excuse our let's say somebody loves in chemo Seabrook and this is their mustard, or this was the Juma is the excuse for not to come. And I personally believe that the Hadith is authentic. And if you wish to come to Juma today, it's up to you. If you want to be in the safe side and you want to attend the Juma that will be absolutely great things to do. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allah hunt. Also brothers and sisters, a cuttlefish Don't forget you should have been given before eight. But if you didn't do it yet, make sure that you give it and make sure it will be it will come out from your money because it is a purification

00:25:00--> 00:25:48

For the person, also, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam recommended us to fast six days of chawan, after the month of Ramadan, and these six days of chawan start from tomorrow, you can fast them executive, one after another consecutive, or you can fast earlier divide them over the month. And he said, If you do that, it will be equal to fasting a whole year, because one month multiply 10 times the 10 months, and six days became 60. So that's two months. So because it equal to a whole year of fasting. And also you are allowed to fast these six days before you make up the missing days of Ramadan. But you're not allowed to join the two intention of making up the six days and testing the

00:25:48--> 00:25:57

making up the the days that you miss the Ramadan, while you're doing the six days you cannot have these two intention, one of them only. Finally brothers and sisters,

00:25:58--> 00:26:27

our nation, while it's healing from that racist, terrorist attack that took place in Charleston, South Carolina, at the church that you all familiar with, we got the news last night of another attack that took place another terrorist attack, but by the hand of somebody, maybe have a different skin color, and a different name and last name in

00:26:29--> 00:26:42

in Tennessee, and with attack to two military centers, I'm sure most of you aware of and left for Marines that are for soldiers, that and many

00:26:43--> 00:27:33

other injured. I just want to say a few words about this. Number one, live the nature of life, that it has terrible things happen. And in this kind of extremism and, and violence, it will happen no matter what, it's not going to go away. It's going to happen in certain rate. So if you ever feel it's never gonna happen, nobody believed that no government no security agencies ever expert and an expert will tell you you can't be 100% protect from it, you will always have crazy people. Even a lot of people think Muslims are very free of this stigma that you hear in the news, the amount of attack that in the United States done by the hand of non Muslim, there's no comparison by the

00:27:33--> 00:28:17

numbers, the effect of it. What's happened by the hand of Muslims in Europe the same thing, most of the terrorist attack that take place, it's happened by non Muslim. It's a very, very, very, very small percentage of unfortunate and misguided people among the Muslim community to be involved in such idea. But the media blows things out of proportion. And there is a focus on it for whatever political reasons, or maybe hate sometimes driven by hate and racism and bigotry against our religion. To make this sounds like it is a way to describe the Muslim community. Now. I want you brothers and sisters, I don't want you to lose confidence in yourself. I don't want you to lose

00:28:17--> 00:28:40

confidence in your deen. Don't lose confidence in your centers. Don't lose confidence in the center of your prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam don't lose confidence in your Muslim leaders. Don't lose confidence in yourself. When you hear things like this, you know what I know who I am, I know what my religion is. And no matter legend is free of that. In the same day we have attack here

00:28:41--> 00:29:25

on the military base, there is a suicide bomb went off Andrey out in the night afraid. So those people don't have a digital differentiate between a Muslim or non Muslims or American or non American. it's it's a it's a message driven or an ideology driven by hate to everyone who don't agree with them with the world. So I don't want you to feel guilty. I don't want you to feel that you're obligated to make an excuse for something that you're not part of. And don't need to apologize for something I didn't do it. You know what I don't do it. My religion doesn't believe in it. So that just the person who's crazy, extremist person does not represent me, and don't ever let

00:29:25--> 00:29:38

them represent us. And this message should be very firm. Because sometimes a check us this one after it I'm telling is not going to go away. And if we're not strong, we can easily fall into this

00:29:39--> 00:29:56

idea and became we can defeat it from within. That's something we will shall never happen when I tell him what I want him alone. Allah subhanaw taala said don't ever give up. Your higher your religion is something you're proud of. Don't Don't be afraid of.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

It's an opportunity for you to teach all

00:30:00--> 00:30:46

you're managing justice and not fair to a judge people by association. It's not fair to paint everyone with the same brush. Don't let this incident steal your joy, steal your happiness of eight. Don't let this scare you, or take your smile away. My brothers and sisters, also, let this remind us, all of us. It is so important for us to know what kind of religious message and education our children take our children learn from online, from whatever resource that they have to make sure that it is modern, we are sure that the message is correct. This is also a very important lesson for all of us to be vigilant. And if you use we always know the phrase, if you see something, say

00:30:46--> 00:31:02

something, it's an opportunity for us to speak about this issue, especially with youth is not going to go away parents, if you think your youth will just because you're scared to talk about it, it's not going to go away You have to imagine a conversation. What's jihad is what is what is what's the concept of

00:31:04--> 00:31:29

Medina law, which should be accommodated in all these meanings needs to be clarified, and to be dealt with and we are hearing the mustard will always deal with things like that. Our religion is a religion based on justice, based on love based on mercy, not the based on violence and killing, not to pick and choose from the evidence. What justify your actions. That's not how our religion is.

00:31:30--> 00:32:09

I asked Allah Subhana Allah by his names and attributes to protect all of us to protect us in our land. I asked Allah Subhana Allah to protect our families to protect our neighbors. I asked Allah Subhana Allah to accept our fasting. Allah him in Yes.
