00:06:25--> 00:06:38

If I may interrupt for a second, for the brothers in the chairs, please do not sit at the exit door. So you need to move your chair to the back or far away from the

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

like, all the way in.

00:06:42--> 00:06:52

Because that's a fire hazard or fire exit loss pantalla protect all of us, but as for their safety and for the rest of people.

00:06:53--> 00:06:54


00:06:55--> 00:06:56

my brothers and sisters,

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

Harry come

00:07:00--> 00:07:07

at the last night, or maybe Night of the month of Ramadan.

00:07:09--> 00:07:38

And the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressed his companion or the Allahu anhu, about something that he believed is so valuable. And indeed it is something very valuable. And he reminded his companions about this act of worship that comes right at the end of Ramadan. And at the beginning of the first day of eat, which is the cuttlefish a

00:07:40--> 00:08:30

few days back, one of the brothers give a talk after the four rockers in Tel Aviv. And it was very interesting point that he raised. He said, we should start thinking about why not only what not only what we need to give, and that's what most people think, what does the captain footnote what is the link as a captain football? How much do I get from the captain footnote? And so far, but he raised the point that we should also think about why do we give the captain why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam cared so much to speak about SOHCAHTOA as I've been on other they said, How carbonara pseudo lifestyle allowed him to sell them what I'm gonna be right is a cotton filter. Yeah woman our main

00:08:31--> 00:08:37

one or two days before it, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us about the cattle.

00:08:38--> 00:09:39

And when I think about the cattle, that what I think of when it comes to why, number one, the cattle filter as an obese Allah Selim defined the role of it is to perfect our fasting in nursery, the cattle filter. Lita mom is so young. So it's perfect. You're fasting and that perfection of fasting? It does something connection be connected to a bigger concept, which is we learn as Muslim. The principle of sun is to do things perfect, or to do things absolutely correct. Or to do things exactly right. Not nearly correct. Not mushy. Not like you know, all good. Everything is okay. This kind of attitude goes against the concept of a sign, which is to do things exactly correct. My

00:09:39--> 00:09:50

brothers and sisters, your commitment to excellence that will enable us to attain the success that we wish to have in this life.

00:09:51--> 00:09:56

The striving for excellence is a very

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

important Islamic principle.

00:10:00--> 00:10:52

And spirit, and it should be the Muslims attitude. We need to switch from doing things nearly right? Nearly correct. It's okay. To me make it exactly correct. Exactly right. We need to change from being basically good or good enough to be great. And to do and to be excellent. We need to learn how to M all of us to the highest point. And that's the attitude that you get out of this account that didn't the B's are seldom said it will perfect your car, it will basically purified and make your fasting perfect, because making fasting perfect is part of the attitude of the Muslim that when they do something, especially when they do it for our last panel data, I do it in the most perfect

00:10:52--> 00:10:53


00:10:55--> 00:11:49

I do believe that if we change our attitude towards life, towards our relationship with align every aspect in our religion, our attitude towards our neighbors towards our job, towards our whatever volunteer work that you do in your in your life, or towards our family, towards my our friends, live will change. And that's you can see it just give you examples. When Allah Subhana Allah talks about communication, he said, we're only a body Apolo lucky here. isin Naka, maka Wakanda by Dr. Paul Hudson. And let eosin tell my servants, when they talk to each other, that they say to each other, the best of speech, the best of things. He didn't say, just say nice things Allah said stood to look

00:11:49--> 00:12:33

for the best of things to say to basically to emphasis on the importance of that principle. In the LA catabolic Santa Ana cliche. Allah prescribed a sand upon every aspect and every actions of our life. That's what the prophets of Salaam said, even when you are slaughtering an animal, you have to do it in the most perfect painless fashion ever can be thought to the extent that the prophets of Salaam said you're not allowed to let the animal see it sister or another animals blood and how, how much you should perfect your work.

00:12:34--> 00:12:53

Allah have mercy on us, when we go on a diet in some places, not all the time. And we see the blood everywhere. Nobody cared for these things, when and they'd be so subtle and want to perfect that very small action to make it in a perfect white.

00:12:55--> 00:13:40

My brothers and sisters, if we change this attitude, and we have high standard in life, I guarantee you, that's not only Ramadan will be perfected by your sakata photo, but your whole entire relationship with the Quran, with the Salah with that with all aspects of a bad diet of active worship that we do. I hope if we do that, and we commit to that, and the cattle further inspire us to be like this. We will be among those who are lost in the Quran. In Allahu hibel mercy Nene. Allah loves our son, Allah loves those who do things in the most perfect fashion

00:13:42--> 00:13:47

the cattle photo to us and map the Avi mimma budget Islam

00:13:48--> 00:14:13

Taka foolish t man womersley yet una de jaha Allah Hurry, the captain football establish also one of the why's that establish a very interesting concept that's in the middle are where it's I consider it's one of the peak moments in the Muslims lives where he or she became so happy

00:14:14--> 00:14:47

when the aid is coming. Just in my way here. I received tons of letters from so many different WhatsApp groups on you know, people in social media, everybody sending me a video clip about eight people have been celebrating mood. I'm sure some of you do. as well. I've received that as well. So you see how happy people are when it comes. But in the midst of that we don't forget about those who are less fortunate than us.

00:14:48--> 00:15:00

We don't forget about the knees and the poor in our society, in our community. Even in the moment of that your celebration. It doesn't mean that you forget about those who need who

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

need your help for us and come at us on Allahu LA. Be good. Allah said, As Allah Subhana Allah have been so good to you.

00:15:11--> 00:15:19

They said be movement. Yeah, and he man and cabanon many animal chabanne, watch out Whoo hoo. Joanne

00:15:20--> 00:16:10

is not a person who have a complete and a good have perfect faith, the one who goes to sleep or the stomach is full worry, Mashallah his needs are fulfilled, while his neighbor is hungry, that wall not be a believer. So this, the cattle remind us of our responsibility, our social responsibility towards the poor, and the need is in the society, that social solidarity. inter independence is a very important concept in religion, that we give the Catholic filter which is a charity that you give to the poor, and to the neediest and to the people who deserve your Zakat around you.

00:16:11--> 00:16:29

If this is the case, on the day of eat, it should be also the case and every day and as an aspect, that on a principle that we live by, during the year, it reminded us of other people's rights to support them when they need our support.

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

Not long time ago,

00:16:33--> 00:16:35

just few days back,

00:16:36--> 00:17:14

when we have a voting in the city of Houston, the City Council voting over a low or over a bill that is basically either to accept it or reject it. And many people thought that these bills and the language of it include a lot of discrimination towards immigrants community. And a lot of people went and showed up and stand against such thing, because they feel the social responsibility towards air issues, or areas where justice need to be supported.

00:17:15--> 00:17:42

Many of us knows that there is many victims around us here in Houston, and also around the world needs your help. That's why we always see my our community and that's a good thing, a good spirit. It's the spirit of the Catholic faith that they always willing to lend a hand or give from what Allah blessed them to Pete to to help people. They don't know their names.

00:17:43--> 00:17:58

They don't know even where these countries exist, when we have Islamic Relief come to raise funds for this Kenter that community. And when you find the community coming forward and giving just because they know that there's somebody needs help.

00:17:59--> 00:18:30

Many times during this month, when I announced that there is a family need your help people come and said, Hey, Chef, this is a 500, this is 200, this is 1000. This is $6,000 for these orphan families, that you guys helping, it's a donation from me, and I bet you anything those people don't know even the names or where these orphans are from or anything about them. It's because they feel that social, you know, obligation that I'm obligated to support.

00:18:32--> 00:18:42

So I hope that in the midst of our happiness during our life, we don't forget about those who have been dislocated from their places.

00:18:43--> 00:18:47

Like many Palestinians, we talk about that,

00:18:49--> 00:19:22

basically displacing of many of Syrian refugees around the world. But sometimes we forget that there is people being refugees for decades among our Palestinians brothers, living in a very hardship, very bad situation around the world, between Lebanon and and many other neighbor country to where they originally basically already were kicked out from, which is the holy land where the Palestinians live.

00:19:23--> 00:19:53

Also, that's also remind us that's in our community, in our society, here in Houston, not very far away. A lot of people also deserve your help deserve yours account. That's why usually we give out the photo. We try our best to make sure that we reach out to the poor and to the needy in our community, in our society, and the needy and the poor who need to be supported and help. Generally speaking, I'm talking here not specifically because

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

they are everyone. You can discriminate based on their battery.

00:20:00--> 00:20:22

ground based on their ethnics based on their religion, based on their, whatever orientation that you can think of today, if this is the person needs my help, I'll stand beside Him and for Him, if this person needs my support, I'll support it. I don't look into any thing other than you're a human being and you deserve to be held

00:20:23--> 00:21:02

the cattle photo, it's made an obligation upon the head of the household, the person who work and earn on generally you see in the books of 50, that means the Father, the head of the household, the father is the one who should give this a counterfeiter on behalf of his wife, behalf of his children, and if even have grandchildren's lived with him living with him, that is his responsibility. But again, there is another way to think about here. It's to re emphasize

00:21:03--> 00:21:10

and to remind us of the role of the Father in the family, that I'm responsible.

00:21:11--> 00:21:30

Unfortunately, Today, many times you see, and you feel that this sense of responsibility is not there. For so many fathers. He kind of dropped the ball and let someone else take care of the kids take care of themselves kind of feel that there is no such responsibilities

00:21:31--> 00:22:13

anymore any feel that the kids can, you know, just live that or the mother will do everything. No, father, count father has an important role to play in that in the house, have important role to play in your children's life. And all fathers who hearing me here on a address myself and for all of you, I'll tell you, you roll with your kids, no one can replace it, not your wife, not your no one can replace your role and your kid's life. They need to see you, they need to talk to you. They need to make sure that they let you listen to them.

00:22:14--> 00:22:30

I remember once I gave hotma about this concept and I told you that kids a spell the word love, T i m e, that how do you spell the word love time.

00:22:32--> 00:22:59

Fathers need to spend more time with their children pay more attention to their need. They need to know that the last part Allah will ask them about their children. And one of the first responsibility to ensure and to make sure that your kids have a right and a correct understanding of Islam, Islamic theology and etiquettes and rules. That's your role to do.

00:23:00--> 00:23:20

Many times we wait for a lot of money man Academy, or this school or that school to do this job for us, or the Sunday school to do it for you. No, you did not free responsibility by dropping your kids only in the school.

00:23:21--> 00:23:23

Arts may be a part of it, but it's not everything.

00:23:25--> 00:23:43

somebody thinks that the mastered will take care of that. We will do our role. But we cannot succeed if the father doesn't see this as a priority as an important thing. What do you have any nabooda last name, um kuntum Shahada, it held on

00:23:44--> 00:23:50

to his carletti Benny, not that bounnam inbody Haruna, Abu ilaha illa Allah.

00:23:52--> 00:24:04

Allah Subhana Allah telling us the prophets and messenger like Ibrahim, like Yaqoob, telling us children, who you going to worship after me, who is your Lord and so forth.

00:24:05--> 00:24:36

It is important that we know that we responsible as especially talking to father today to make sure that you raise your kids upon the proper etiquette. I love it. When I give a shake a hand to shake a father's hand, and next time his young boy and I shake the boy's hand and the boy is like not looking at me. Then the father tells his son go quietly to sunset son. When you shake a man's hand, look at them in the eyes.

00:24:38--> 00:24:48

I love it because I know that this father cares about raising his children to have a proper etiquette. The right etiquette the right attitude.

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

I love it when they see a father here in taraweeh having a son teaching him disciplines telling him Hey, you need to do this. You need to do that. Even if you make a mistake. See

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Will correctly, he cares.

00:25:04--> 00:25:40

That's the responsibility. Don't ever think of the captain foot that is just the $10 that he dumped in the box and you move, there is a bigger reason and concept and a why behind it is to inspire us to know this is our responsibility, especially towards our teens as they grow up. They need someone to validate their feelings, not to evaluate their feelings. They need someone to accept them, not someone to judge them. They need to feel love,

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

not to feel the anger.

00:25:47--> 00:25:58

So, it is an important role for the father to play. As we gives a counterfeiter on behalf of our family to think about our responsibility towards them.

00:26:00--> 00:26:10

Many of the people that I'm dressing Now, on the semester, they can tell from the faces, that we came from different parts of the world.

00:26:12--> 00:26:14

And unfortunately,

00:26:15--> 00:26:26

part of the culture that some of us came from, it's a culture that never taught us how to express our love, how to express our feeling.

00:26:28--> 00:26:39

And that's something needs to be changed. We need to be able to express and to verbalize our feelings with others, especially these beautiful feelings like love and caring.

00:26:40--> 00:26:59

Not enough only to love your kids when you lose some one of them should show them love now when they are around you or your parents or so far. I asked a las panatela by his names and attributes to bless us and to make us among those who hear the speech and follow the best of it.

00:27:05--> 00:27:11

00:27:15--> 00:27:21

estidama to pa for pa to VA that he will follow

00:27:22--> 00:27:36

the cattle photo one of the things why? because Islam wants to remind us that we should continue to do good someone said check. I just donated the number one so much Mashallah. Every day there is a fundraising.

00:27:37--> 00:28:15

And every week there is a fundraising. And I just prayed all these nights read the whole Koran facet. Now Islam want me to you know what to give another. There's another responsibility upon me another act of worship to do Yes, in the first day of EDS, why so you have this idea that we worship Allah as he said, Why Buddha Rebecca Hector at Acadia teen your worship Allah until the last moment of your life, continuing doing what is right and what is correct. It teach us the concept of the continuation of doing good or doing good

00:28:19--> 00:28:31

for either ferrata fansub so I hope that this will teach us that these great act of worship that we did in Ramadan, we'll continue to do it as well. After the month of Ramadan.

00:28:32--> 00:28:34

My brothers and sisters

00:29:43--> 00:29:44

Pinilla ale site.

00:29:46--> 00:29:47

The cattle filter

00:29:48--> 00:29:49

is largely

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

colorblindness, we'll assume that you see beside him. It take away arrogance, because he still feel that you're Romana

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

With all what you did need a purification

00:30:03--> 00:30:27

bring you to your knees. You don't feel arrogant. I did too much. The cattle photo, also fossa, little, very car beside him. And cassava, fecal Ramadan, muscle Indic fossa and closer. It's a chance for those who didn't do very good during the month of Ramadan to catch up even the last night Even the last moment of the month.

00:30:29--> 00:31:04

So I encourage each and every one of us to give the Catholic football and to make sure that when you give it you reflect upon these wise reflect upon these meanings. So it will be a very meaningful, meaningful Zakat meaningful after worship.

Amato swana Allahu La La

00:32:52--> 00:33:01

usually people make announcement about those who passed away after the salaat but I would like to make an announcement about those who passed away because we have

00:33:02--> 00:33:08

several brothers here in our community lost their loved one so you can make the offer them in the salon

00:33:09--> 00:33:13

because that's one of the best time to make which is

00:33:14--> 00:33:27

we have brother Sam and his sister passed away. We have brother Adnan his father passed away. And we have brother Javaid brothers in Pakistan as well passed away

00:33:28--> 00:33:35

and we have also fallen man Celine passed away in Pakistan
