oh praise v2 Ahmad is praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family, his companions and his followers until the day after, I bear witness that the law is the only one worth your fortune. And Mohammed Salah law of audio similar is lost from Final messenger. My brothers and sisters, today, the day of evil oppa is one of the it is the greatest day in the year, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in a meeting
Yo, the greatest day, and the loss of Kanaka islands I've lost. I've chosen this day to be the greatest day of the year, the great state of the EU, and the day where people sacrifice their
sacrificial lamb, which is we know as bad or as some people said poor band. And this is a great day. That's why it is highly recommended during the day of read. And the days after it. We call it a yellow tertiary of the day for the tertiary. And the Muslim scholars debated since the time of the companions is two days after. So it will be Saturday and Sunday. In this case, it will be Saturday and Sunday, or it is three days after
three days after a year. So it would be Saturday, Sunday and Monday and Monday and majority of the companions and the scholars have agreed it's three days after that eat three days after the date. So these are known as the days of
am actually worship of being politically lanica these days are days of celebration, when you remember a loss of Hanukkah, you mentioned a lot. So that's why it's highly recommended during these days to say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar caveolae on hamdu, Lillahi cateel, or some kind of money, look at what I see a lot about a lot.
And this can be said after each and every prayer, so many people do. And during the daytime as well, during the daytime as well want to learn how to be a young man to remember a loss of time value certain days, and so many cells, these are the 10 days of the project, and the days of Additionally, which is the three days after that. And also, he said some of our understanding, a young attorney was sure there are things for grooming alarm, and eating and drinking. That's why so many Muslim scholars have stated that during these days, you're not allowed to fast you're not allowed to fast because it's considered part of the day it's part of part of the a part of the aim. And then there
is also the opposite these are the days of eating and drink.
It is highly recommended today, since we have already approved even we had the football club is to make sure to bring happiness and joy to yourself and your family spend time with them inside which is a great scholar he wrote a book about art, which is a biography of the scholars and follow up means down so we start with the level of the companion then the level of the young companion and the level of the older cabin in successor then you have the young tragedy. So there are like
many talks about the power of youth each and every one of you wrote a wonderful
writing about the prophets of Salaam, sila. Anyway, the point is in his book he reported that the companions used to give an aid to the children they used to give them gifts and they used to give them money as a form of gift. And also I'm very happy to report that something similar to that
as well. So you have this practice for a very long time that people give gifts to their children, give gifts to your neighbors, and part of the gifts you do come in for you to do as part of your own healing that you offer to Allah subhanho wa Taala today, and maybe some of them said, the best thing that you can please also counter with today is to offer the offer back and you can offer today or the next three days inshallah, to Allah. And it's highly recommended to do that during the daytime, not the night time.
My brothers and sisters, for those who have mental prevent outside United States, as you know, that is not
permissible during the 10 days of the kitchen, to cut your hair or to take anything from your mail, this rules come to an end after solidarity. So even if your path will be sacrificed tomorrow, or two, three days later, it will be taken in unless you yourself are going to sacrifice an animal in Houston. Tomorrow after tomorrow, you cannot shake, you cannot train, you cannot cut your nails until you offer your hair if you are doing it personally, here in Houston.
I mentioned something. And this is a habit that I do every year. During our shop, I always emphasize on a concept that I would like to be the concept of the upcoming year, something a theme for the next year, a big goal that we all want to achieve together as a community, something that I will focus on building the year, I will inspire my team and my brothers sisters who work with me in the messenger and who attend to domestic to focus on that big goal. And I would like to see this also happening in every house, or in every house in our community, something that we all try hard to achieve as a community, inside our homes, and inside our community. And the theme that I have
mentioned early this morning is about the happiness that we would like to make the 2030 is a happy that happens something is easy to achieve. I know that there are so many of us that maybe have a hard time, maybe they don't have a good job, maybe they have a trouble with the family, maybe they lost a loved one. Maybe they're having a financial
struggle, or maybe struggle with a teenager or struggling with your parents, or maybe someone that you love who passed away, whatever the situation is. and some even think bigger, like looking at the Muslims word and what's happening in the Muslim world, I will be starting say how can we have happiness policy, all these problems, let me tell you something, that happiness doesn't mean at all that you live a free of problems happens, it doesn't mean that you will live a free of struggle.
Even when we consider a happy marriage relationship. Sometimes when they read the book of pat Griffin, and they say, like, you know, like, for example, or so and so scholar spent 40 years or 20 years with his wife, they never had a fight. They never had an argument in the house. You know, they never got mad at each other. I said to myself, good for him, you know, but it's not the reality, maybe the same. I don't think that person then put him in that person's life for 20 years or 40 years. I mean, it's very hard for me to take it up live if it means definitely they have a very good relationship. But to have this ideal perception that you can live a life that there is nothing ever
can happen. Not a single problem. Yeah, I've
never had this marriage relationship. And maybe some a lot of something hasn't been quite important. Sometimes. It's just she said, Would you sometimes have like any
up back at the profits on our side? And she said yes. I said I will the whole day. I wouldn't mention the process of internet. Even when I want to say something I'll say the Lord. The Lord could be blocking. And the process or someone said, I know when my wife was mad at me when she said the Lord of Moses, the Lord God said to
me that's natural. And it is was a very happy relationship. What I'm trying to say, living a happy life doesn't mean that you don't have a struggle in love, doesn't mean that you will live a life free of challenges. No, because these challenges and struggles in life never meant from a loss of Canada Allah to weekly
It's never meant to make you a weak person actually be as clever as these challenges in life, it's always making a strong person. Remember, that's only dead fish, dead fish swim in the street.
That's the only time the fish will go in the street. Otherwise, the fish will always goes against the current, to keep it alive. That's the natural, that's a natural phenomenon, that this struggles and challenges of life and just keep you alive. It keeps you strong, it keeps you it keeps you fresh and alert. And believe me, Allah Subhana, Allah knows how much you can get there. Our strength, Allah knows how much you can, you can take. That's why the prophets of Southern said, in the middle
of oppressed people according to their faith, their ability of resisting the struggle.
And when I was a Pakistani raise the level of tests a little bit, it means you intend to good for you to raise your level of Paradise, and to raise your level in this dunya by making you a stronger person, a stronger person, my brothers and sisters,
being happy doesn't mean that you only care about yourself. So as long as I'm happy, I don't care about others. No. How can this never mean Stoker's? It means that you really start with yourself, because you cannot make other people happy or to contribute to the happiness of others, if you are from inside defeat, if you are from inside up. So
this concept of happiness, it's 100%. And the summit concept, it's 100%, one of the ultimate goal of Islam. You Believe it or not, that's one of the goals that I'm keen to start one of the goals that I'm going to start to establish a happy family, to have a happy individuals to have a happy community to have a happy life and a happy end. And a happy life after each and every one of us. Even happiness, a loss of having either mentioned a something he would reward the people of Paradise with it. It is something that people's paradise wouldn't didn't work with. I was trying to think about the people of paradise. What are we voting for? No.
Somebody needs to control the kid. Okay.
There's almost a kind of without giving them no bra in their faces with sort of happiness and
I said about the believers in
We are living in an age, which is one of the meanings of it, a happy life. And this happy life is not only the alpha, it's in the doula up, and also kind of added another person some of the Russian, he described that he said,
somehow what that meant of you lost it means
that you will live in a good life. That's why brothers and sisters, happiness will be achieved first and foremost, by being closer to us, Canada, the meaning of happiness will be achieved by knowing us.
By worshiping you, by committing yourself to the closer you come to Him, because He is the source of all happiness and up with these hearts in the heart in the hand of
our hearts in the hand. He can turn you because the haggis comes from women.
And it's in the head if you want to turn a certain way he would do. So the more you come closer to us, the more tranquility you will have the more you will be more contented with this life and not what will lead to happiness.
When also can color describe those who fall away from a lot. They just keep in remember women are indicative those who turn their back to Alaska
they left in this life
and the other person scraped up the phone above the chest he said I saw at the center
that they're hard under justice so tight, so tight.
You live in misery. Don't be
deceived by moments of joy that you see here and there by some of the yeah and the by some of the people who are not unbeliever, or a wrongdoers our standard warn us from being deceived by this. He said,
don't be ever deceived by the kuffar. How wide How time flies in the heart, don't think that this is why maybe you think this way, when
I asked him and never put anyone in that position, but if you switch place, if you cross the line to the other side, you will know how miserable This is that you live in your soul, it's not a touchstone, or some kind of way to live a life for you the basic things you didn't know who you are pretty interface? Or do you have completely the wrong idea about the marriage of your soul
and your body,
and even know what the purpose of your life and what will happen to you next.
And one of the things that told us to be happy.
Being an optimist, optimism, it's a, it's a wonderful thing. It's a, it's an attitude that bring happiness to the person that you always say light. And for him to even in the dark smile, that you're all seeing opportunities in your technical
optimism, it is one of the character, the characteristic of Muhammad Sallallahu
as important, so hey, what can he do?
He loves optimism. So
one of the things that how you to be a happy person is to be always looking forward for something, have something to look forward to
work towards a goal. But even better, so many people don't feel happy, and they're not happy in their life, because they don't have something that you're looking forward to every day when they woke up in the morning, you know, I would have ever walked out I'm going to the same job to the same routine. And that's it. But there's nothing really I'm looking forward to achieve. I don't have that big goal in my life.
You know what, let's assume you're a teacher and you go to a school, we will be your garbage every day. It just you know what I have to three classes to teach. Now, you should have a goal. You know what my goal every day when I go to this job is to achieve 123 I want to make something different than myself. You know, one of the most important questions to ask yourself whenever you need to have a job. And so many of these young people, like you want to get job these days. So they told me I got a job. I said almost didn't think about not what you are getting out of your job. Always think about what you are going to become
after you accept this job. Whatever become whatever kind of person was jumping, making.
And the goal that you see in everything that you do during your everyday work.
Every one of us
is either a father or one day.
And a sick of just having you looking forward for something you're not cheap. By being a father figure, or being a mother, how your family what's the what's the goal that you've achieved by having this person in your life, your sauce,
you always have something you looking forward to achieve financial goals, religious goals, and so forth. And that will turn your mind around and to turn your life around.
one of the things that I would like to share to say about there's so much to be said about the stock, but one of the point they said that it's a secret to happiness.
Sometimes you know what?
You need to learn to follow your heart.
Follow your goals.
Here's so many times we just finalize things in keeping so logical. I'm not saying hey, guns, like you know, I'm fine with that. But those who always calculated like, you know, one plus one equals two and deal with life in a very clean way like this. So many times be complaining about being not so happy. You know what sometimes you need to follow your gut. You need to follow your heart.
You know, I have this good feeling about it. I just want to do
and then see when you do that, when you do that. You feel good about yourself.
I almost wish to do now I almost want to do this. Maybe I see a silly example. Whenever he doesn't know why I walk and I drive by
The Hilton Hotel. I'm not sure what one. But you know, I see this jet ski in the water and people have gone. And I see I see 250 dollars or $60 you only think about maybe my family needs at $6. Or maybe they can save this for this, you know, for for my tuition. You never know how risky it is. There's people talk about dangerous, but inside your gut say you know what that sounds like fun, fun thing to do again this weekend.
Yes, maybe get some water score, but you know what sounds like a good thing to do. Just do it. Just go do it.
Everything by calculating it too much. Sometimes that's a secret that happens just to be a happy person. And follow your heart full, which you wish.
And suppressing these wishes and what your heart tells him all the time, all the time. wouldn't make you a very happy person. But also following your heart and not using the logic all the time is something other than extreme not calm for now.
that one is this joy
in this life.
He mentioned three things. One of them is to have good friends.
And he is absolutely right.
One of the things that really make you have a person is making good friends.
You know, most of the happy people have friends. Do you remember when you were kid, you're much happier.
I know. Because you have so many problems other people care about you. That's one of the reasons that we'll get used to be very happy because we have more friends than what we have today.
Count staff that's a fun time. Happy Days. Good friends account. Unfortunately, the more we grow older, the more we neglect our friends, and we'll leave our phones.
In one thing that make you happy person is to have good friends. The more you make good friends, the more you will be happy first.
One thing that I believe it's helpful
to make you happy smile.
Smile as much as you can be like your
every time he was seen he was smiling. Even in the most difficult times of all time the smiley face on him. So
Java said I said I met the person more than 100 times. In return later, he was smiling. Another person another job actually said I met the process of them every time. I found him smile every single time.
Can you imagine? And maybe some of our other writers send them right
along? She was asked about the process on the inside this house. Which is a beautiful question because he can be a good person
you know, outside the house, the nicest guy ever inside the house.
You know, don't ask. So who was asked how is he inside the house? So I said he was outside and inside the most cheerful person I've ever seen him on
Khan Academy, I've got a nasty ha ha Hawaii.
And he was always in service for his family. He always told his family and take care of his own affairs.
What kind of equipment the enemy what kinda yesterday? Do you ever see
what you're up to? So the
one thing that I believe is how to make us happy people
is to always grateful to us.
and every thing happy to be grateful and thankful to see the community. And that's the item. I couldn't do it that it wasn't for nothing. The first verse that you face when you open the Muslim
because that's what made you a happy person to realize this fact that Alhamdulillah in all circumstances, because it may be so someone said it
Typically I mean either in the
US whether anything happened to pick up to her is always good, all strength it for you.
If it's good you're grateful and thankful alleging something bad hardship calamity strikes your your patient with our staggering reward
and make you grow stronger.
So every situation that you're in, it's a win win situation, it's a win win situation.
So let's go small thing that really helped us to keep us happy people may also grant us members is duty and the alpha and there is more to be taught about this concept things related to it. Show over to the end but I wish that we really take this call students and to make that commitment and to think about how can I make this a hobby for me and my family and please share it with you share it with your brothers and sisters sharing these goals sharing the results with us. We're all welcoming you open up to share your positive experience in the mustard. Will you email it to us to share it to the rest of the community? I want
