Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Mala Nebia by the Hoonah Vienna Muhammad sinuata early or Sahibi was salam, ala Houma to Sleeman, Kathira and my bad, all praise due to Allah and His praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, his family, his companions and his followers until the Day of Judgment, I bear witness that Allah is the only one worthy of worship, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his last and final messenger, my dear brothers and sisters, enjoy the little things in life.

00:00:51--> 00:00:58

For one day, you will look back and realize they were the big things.

00:00:59--> 00:01:09

When I read this first time, this code and the first time it really stuck with me. And the more I think about it, I see it makes a lot of sense.

00:01:10--> 00:01:55

These little things in life, when you look back at it, later on, you will find them that they are big things and meant a lot for you. So matter of fact, it's interesting. When you usually try to remember things, you always remember small little things like a moments, you remember a specific incidents, even the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu sometimes when they try to have a moment of nostalgia, they will mention little small things. He held my hands on alladia salah, he put here basically patting me on my back, Salah is Allah He came in, he hugged me from behind me, these little things meant a lot to them that after decades, they still remember

00:01:56--> 00:02:04

come. And in many different areas. This issue is not in one aspects of life.

00:02:05--> 00:02:48

And I want to talk today about how important it is to care about these things. That might be called small or little but indeed they are not. They mean a lot and they can add up to be something very great. Come out in a salon Romina Zulu boom, rotted Zulu either to man Allah Allah Abdul Malik Anna who come up call and abuse or Salam. For in us Allah Iran Hassan Assad, either terminal Illa Abdi and Jaina who yarmulke Yama as the small sons and minor sins. When you collect so many of them the prophets are solid said it will take you straight to hellfire.

00:02:49--> 00:03:30

And the other hand also we understand from the same Hadith. We understand that also these little small good deeds that you do every day and you accumulate them it will save you in the day of judgment and it will raise your level in Jannah pile individual Salam Elif Lam Meem be Cooley how finacially Hasina la Apollo Alif Lam Meem health well I can elephant health when I'm on hard for me human health eleff Law mean that's 30 Hassan uses small things but it matters it adds up quickly.

00:03:39--> 00:03:52

for Sinatra who Sinatra to hula hula halwa, Robert Northam got a poor person who's blind. So Robbie, his wife was making food and like some dessert or cake for him.

00:03:53--> 00:04:00

Then Robert, when he took the sweet he started making sure it looks nice and fits perfect and everything looks good.

00:04:01--> 00:04:12

For Connington Molotow who I am What are you doing his blind? Why do you care about decorating it so much? Paula kin Allah ha yes no era?

00:04:13--> 00:04:27

Yes, he might not see but Allah does that little things, even to the extent that he making sure that this is presented in the most perfect way. It shows a sense of attitude.

00:04:29--> 00:04:38

And that's why my brother and sisters success in general, is the sum of a lot of small things been done correctly.

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

The true people who achieved success in life and they achieve excellence in big things are the people who develop the habit in little you know matters because excellency is not an exceptional Excellency and success is that he

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

Zolt have the habit of caring about doing things correct and doing things in the best way. Developing that habit is so important. Having that attitude. It is so important for us as Muslims. And if we look at our religion and way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you will see that this is something that the Shediac cared for it so much, and it's very interesting. And we look at the model for us, which is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Look, for example, cannot eat an adult who Raju SallAllahu Sallam Lal Tuffy to La he suddenly Belial tivity relay he besonderer SallAllahu sallam. When someone called the prophets of salaam he will not just say yes like this and

00:05:47--> 00:05:55

turn his cheek. He will turn his whole chest to basically be in front of the person and talk to him.

00:05:56--> 00:06:24

A lot of things but it matters. It shows how much he cares salatu salam when some Salah Salem Shake somebody's hand cannula true Creator Rajamouli Hatay. Hakuna Willa theatrical Awada when you shake somebody's hand you will not leave somebody's hands until the person leaves first. Today you got lucky if you got even a shake hand you're lucky if you got an eye contact for you know three seconds. Yeah.

00:06:25--> 00:06:30

And he's like already gone over to give you like the tip of his finger.

00:06:31--> 00:07:03

It just not paying that attention to you when he gives you how many times the Sahaba said the first thing they saw the pros when they saw the process on him every time not one not occasionally not rarely, every time you practice him you smile at them so a lot is a limb when he speaks to someone Salah Salem and someone speaks to him he will never cut that person off. He will wait until the finish the person finished completely. And he said even to the gallery Dublin Marina which is for ANA the Luma pilot, I believe are you finished?

00:07:05--> 00:07:12

Making sure that he's not going to interrupt the person in front of him. You're going to Ben gerade had Destiny APA

00:07:13--> 00:07:24

and the who called in originally you had this in you will Hadith first me Rhoda. Who can you? Oh well Amara estimated Hadith. Well, Anna submitted to Coppola, Newland.

00:07:25--> 00:07:45

I thought I'm gonna be on my back. And that's the Tobia of the companions. He's a student of an ibis. He said, a young man will come and narrate for me a hadith and I will listen to it so attentively, as if I am Yanni listening to it the first time I heard this hadith before this young man was even born.

00:07:47--> 00:08:12

But that's how the Tobia that's how the etiquettes that how that the care about these small things, and indeed or not. So surely I said when someone gives you salaam, it is in Islam, it is an obligatory on YouTube, and total Debbie Metheny how Asad Amina and he somebody said What's why the Allah Subhana Allah Allah above his throne cares about when someone greed you how you respond.

00:08:13--> 00:08:21

He said you respond equal or more, not less. And if I said to you As Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah you can say welcome. Some

00:08:22--> 00:08:32

have to say why they come with cinema Rahmatullah or you add or Baraka. That's why sometimes they get a little bit annoyed and email somebody. I said, I'm on a coma Rahmatullah what I got. Now I have to write.

00:08:34--> 00:08:38

It's too long to write. take too much time. But I have to

00:08:40--> 00:08:44

that so come up with a technical Asara masala Anisha manpower.

00:08:46--> 00:09:11

So the point is that Allah cares about this that's to me that's making sure that we care about these things. On a Nabi SallAllahu Sallam let Anna Justinian do natality Huma became Leia isn't that even Massoud was say when three people together they should not to have them talk to each other and privately and the third person left out why because that will make that person feel bad

00:09:13--> 00:09:14

He said, because that servant is the one who cook it, who dealt with the fire dealt with the heat, and with all the effort at least give him some see that thing should not go unnoticed. Even though he's your servant.

00:10:55--> 00:10:59

him that allows Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah He was the woman wherever

00:17:10--> 00:17:13

I wanted to be more specific about small things matter

00:17:15--> 00:17:16

in the messenger to

00:17:17--> 00:17:19

smiling at someone passing by you.

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

You know,

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

not cutting someone out in the parking lot.

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

giving someone an opportunity to go

00:17:30--> 00:17:47

not pushing the parking lot guy on he said, Hey, please go there, even if you don't agree with him. But you know, it's not gonna harm me. But I will be you know, I can talk about it later. But I will respect that the line behind me just being patient with others not being wasteful.

00:17:49--> 00:18:04

Also, one of the thing is, you know, means a lot when we have a guest, and somebody comes in he say when I traveled to muster, and somebody comes Hey, Sarika What's your name? Thank you. Your hope was good. I really benefited from your hotbar

00:18:05--> 00:18:13

or somebody, Hey, you lost hope. Oh, by the way, that was very good. I learned this. I share this with my family. These things makes huge impact on people's

00:18:15--> 00:18:15

feelings.

00:18:16--> 00:18:23

And it developing a habit of goodness. And a good connection. Good attitude. Good luck.

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

You know,

00:18:27--> 00:18:31

last week, we had guests and the mustard

00:18:32--> 00:18:35

coming from overseas, Muslims and non Muslims.

00:18:36--> 00:18:47

And as much as I was so happy because they were so proud. They told me this is the best mustard we've been to and there's so many good compliments. As much as I was so happy with that. I was also in the pain

00:18:49--> 00:18:49

last week,

00:18:51--> 00:18:59

even though I'm paying with this for a while, but last week really hurts me the most. Because it's not only in house, this is now

00:19:00--> 00:19:03

Afghani visitors coming

00:19:04--> 00:19:08

in the salon, the salon, were amazed by how quiet you guys are.

00:19:09--> 00:19:14

The moods that somebody got this turned to be like, you know, marketplace.

00:19:16--> 00:19:17

Fish Market.

00:19:19--> 00:19:21

And that's not acceptable.

00:19:22--> 00:19:27

I am the same person who was talking in the member who was talking under microphone.

00:19:28--> 00:19:30

I stopped my evil twin.

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

That's me.

00:19:34--> 00:19:43

I'm talking telling Hey, by the way they have theirs 123 You don't want to hear the announcement. It's up to you. You can go but he don't have the right to talk while I'm talking.

00:19:47--> 00:19:48

That's more things matter.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

You don't have the right to be talking and the echo of your voice going wild. There's somebody trying to pray there sooner.

00:20:01--> 00:20:02

That's not correct

00:20:04--> 00:20:14

and I think that we need to be more responsible about these small things because that what's really sometimes shape who you are as a community

00:20:16--> 00:20:32

is we care about not to leave a shoes I don't think somebody died if we're going to leave one single shoes in front of the masala but it does because we all do that it became look nice we look it's safe for everybody those who are you know want to get out quickly somebody handicap you know, same thing

00:20:33--> 00:20:49

I would just want to make a rule that we all agree upon. There is no more talking raising voice inside the Salah prayer area after Salah you want to talk when you will reach to where the shoes area is, talk as much as you want.

00:20:51--> 00:20:56

And here it is completely soft. Some people like me, I'm by nature loud person.

00:20:57--> 00:21:06

So we try to, to minimize this to the minimum. And especially when the announcement make because it's really feel so bad. I wish

00:21:07--> 00:21:16

I can do that. But I feel embarrassed. All the people always see them talking one day I asked him to do the announcement, you're reading and everybody's like

00:21:17--> 00:21:19

talking or like not giving you attention.

00:21:21--> 00:21:30

So these little things also matter in the mustard. And we cannot live like double life. We should be consistent in our

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

these areas.

00:21:34--> 00:21:50

Why little things matter? Because it means that if you care about the small things you will care about the big things. And also when you care about those things when it comes to dealing with people. It means that you really care about that person, respect that person. Things really don't matter what matters is people.

00:21:51--> 00:22:34

So I asked Allah subhanaw taala to do was make us among, I'm not aiming for basics. I consider us as a community a role model. And I will hold ourselves to the highest standard. That's I'm very open about this and talking about it like this with you guys. And I will not get tired from reminding and I have nothing like 100 I love each and every one of you the most. I think we're the one of the best community ever seen in my life. But you know what, that's how it goes. We push each other and I will highly recommend you to listen to my list second hotbar online because of my alert my second football talk is in details about some of the evidence related to that issue of the ruling of

00:22:34--> 00:22:39

talking in the mussten raising voice in the mustard and I highly recommend you to listen to it online.

00:22:41--> 00:23:04

To kind of complete one another to do we have a shortage of Imam so I'm giving the two hookless 100 Allah Allahu molfetta Not him know if you know if I didn't know I could have Newsela now Allah Minister look at who doubt to our alpha for Rena, fill in our hand no Ivanoff I know I know Ali DNA and Muslim you know Muslim. I mean, you may not even know what I'm white or SallAllahu wasallam and Anabaena Muhammad Ali Surah
