In Alhamdulillah indeed, all praise and thanks are due to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now medu who so we praise Allah subhana wa Taala
but it's not just praise of a law but we ask for his help.
And the type of help that we asked from Allah, it's only strong when we place our trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. But what kind of trust is this that we place in Allah, its belief. It's an understanding that we believe in Allah subhanaw taala. And this belief in one creator leads us to the statement, one
that we say, oh, Allah, protect me from the evil that's within myself. What kind of things are evil within a normal human being without shavon there's greed, there's anger, there's lust, we on our own accord. We might see someone's car in the driveway in the in the parking lot here, and we'll feel well I wish I had this. This is not shea butter. This is knifes nuptse human. So before Juma Hooda, what do we say every Friday? When I
say Dr. Molina, we say every Friday Oh a lot distance, the nuptse part of Busan, the nuptse part of me, so that when I hear the hook, but when I hear the words, then I can get close to them without feeling this. Oh, I know better. But there's a second thing that affects so human beings we have greed, we have lust. We have anger. These are Nazi parts. But the second part of this is from last Friday to this Friday. Whoever stood here last Friday said the same type of words. But between last Juma and this Juma we say when do billahi min sruti and fusina woman say ye rt armanino. So when you turn a coin over, right, the other side of the coin is when I do bad deeds over law protect me from
the evil of my bad deeds. simple concept. When someone says a grandma's name putting it to EA hoga. Right. If you don't pray, this is going to happen. AKA Tamiya hoga maga we don't think about what's going to happen here. I'll give you three simple examples or a pseudo law he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the sound books of Hadith. He said, when a person lives he tells a lie. Yes, it's recorded in the hereafter. But when you lie, a small black spot is formed on your heart. Now you can ask any cardiologist if you look at a heart, is there any black on it? No, there's no black. What is this blackness? It's the light that comes inside from Allah subhana wa Tada. So I asked Karissa, Karissa,
can you turn on the lights in the budget? And if then I come in and I spray paint all the windows closed, and I turn off all the lights and I say, Oh, it's dark in here. He'll see but you stop the light from coming inside. So when we lie when we make excuses for ourselves here in dunya, the light of a loss of how do I die that can't come in example number one. Let's take example number two, if I disrespect my elders, if I disrespect, some are more some judge. He is not going to disrespect me. But what is the repercussion in this world? Young kids that generation leader they will start to disrespect me. So the effect of bad deeds is not immediate. It comes after some time. So when we say
when I owe to be like him in truly emphysema, Allah protect me from what's inside me. What mean say he actually are marlina then you're saying Allah, if I didn't pray fudger throughout this week or a lot cleanse that from me and write me from amongst the most saline. That's the third example we're going to take a loss of how do I die? Allah tells us in the in the Quran twice, so you can find these is where Allah subhana wa Taala talks about namaaz but the effect of namaaz the effect of Salah, not the Jonathan big demon takhti Helen, how Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us
Indeed, the Salah, indeed the prayer, it distances fascia, so how is it such that we pray five times prayer, but then what comes on the TV? It doesn't affect us, right? Our daughter walks
into the room, and there's something on the TV. It's normal. Why? Because maybe the salon is not being prayed the way Allah subhana wa tada asked us to, maybe the connection between us and a loss of Allah is just a up and down motion. So these are the effects of bad deeds. When we lie, it affects the guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala. When we miss prayers, then Bollywood and Hollywood becomes easier. It doesn't become discomfort, that
memory that discomfort when you were younger, and you saw something like oh, stuff for lunch, after a while, what happens to that karate when you keep watching, especially now that the Olympics are happening, right? You see, it's the same number upon it's the same without clothes, but Oh, someone's giving them marks. So it's okay. Right? It's the same nakedness but oh, no, it's all for sport. So do you feel this sense of It's okay. It's part of our culture. So slowly this cup, this discomfort that Kara had, it goes away and you feel like this is natural. This is what should happen. So we say every Friday Oh, a lot cleanse whatever happened from last Friday to this Friday.
Cleanse that from us so that we can hear the words of the hookah and they can affect us. And then we say every Friday man
whoever Allah subhana wa Taala chooses for guidance, no one can misguide. So now you say in your heart, Allah my
Allah make me that person who Allah chose for guidance. But on the flip side of the coin, whoever Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't choose for guidance. Whoever spree painted the windows closed it in says Allah guide me, Allah guiding this person, nobody can guide them. Because Allah subhana wa tada because of their actions, because of their deeds has closed their heart. So if we felt something maybe you heard something during last Friday to this Friday, and you feel like you know what, Islam It doesn't make sense so much anymore. There's so much science there's so much advancement. Maybe if that came into your heart say Allah helped me cleanse that helped me get rid of that statement
helped me have a connection to the not just emotionally but through my rationale through my understanding, and one statement will bring all of us together. Because we said and those who are coming now, we said one statement binds us together, not our language, not our culture, not the way I dress, not the fact that I live stateside and you live here. One statement binds all of us together whether you understand English as your first language or not. Every Friday we and myself this brother and all of us stay one statement.
We all bear witness and testify. We sign on the dotted lines of our souls that there is no other creator sustainer there is no other judge. There is no other ILA there is no other architect of the sack that I slept in for nine months other than Allah subhana wa Tada. And without that test, suffocation you would have been somebody who works here and I would have worked stateside, we've never known each other. But Allah allowed me to know you, brother. Why, because when I shared one number, Hamilton Abdul.
So every week we bear witness and testify the Friday is the day to reaffirm that there is no other creator sustainer, giver of life other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the way that a lot talks to us, because if you meet some guy late night, at the pub outside on the street, he'll say, God talks to me too, right? With enough, a little bit enough drink, you can God will talk to you. So you will say no, Allah subhanaw taala doesn't talk to us directly. He said, The Best of mankind. He said the most pure of human beings to walk the face of the earth
are solo. And we bear witness and testify that the final messenger and slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The gift for us was Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and when we say his name, we pucker our lips to pronounce Mu mohammadu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this question then comes to you. So Allah we believe in Mohammed the rest of the lot is sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he seals the messenger ship. So he is the final prophet. But the question then comes Why did Allah send in the last How do I die only send Muhammad Rasul Allah to teach me how to dress, or did he only send Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so that I could hold my hands here
or here. What was that?
The purpose of sending Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this was sent to us twice once in Surah sub and once in Surah Mohammed, we quote the ayah from Surah 61. So, where Allah subhanho wa Taala explains what's the function of Muhammad Rasulullah what's the purpose of Summer Love? It was Salaam.
Allah subhanho wa Taala our Salah soon sent a messenger Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with two components below Huda or Dean and Huck. He sent Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the way to dress, eat, talk, walk, smile when you see your elder smile when you see young people and then sort of the Allahu taala and in his narration says that I never saw the face of Muhammad Rasool Allah without a smile sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now put this up against cnn telling you that it's a religion of anger. It's a religion of hate. Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam didn't have time to hate. He had time to carry what dealhack so after guidance
brothers and sisters outside of this mustard, then you're going to carry what Dean and Huck inside the mustard It's simple, smile, be kind keep clean clothes. But Dean in hock Islam is going to be much outside the doors of this Masjid much outside the doors when you go back to work today, when you go back to work and someone says so what did you do? You had a good prayer. You can say yes, we prayed. And we thought about the world. We didn't pray for Muslims. We thought about the oma the human body that there was there and you smile you maybe bring them some part of your lunch you bring them some coffee or what's what's the occasion Mohammed? Oh, today is your aid for us. Today is a
celebration. Just like stateside on Sundays. What happens? people they drive slower they're supposed to, they're supposed to be polite when they go to church. This is our Tao when we leave here, who will levy our Salah Rasulullah who will be the Buddha. What Dean and Huck and a true system of living, not just the deen that said when you pray pray nicely, but when you hate even Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said you hate when you fight you fight in the best of manner when you love then you love to a certain extent. Well, okay, hey mushy Riku. And in the ayah, we take the words who will be our Salah rasuna who believe Buddha, Medina and Huck Leo
so that he Daya could bring a complete system of Islam, not just Islam in my home, but Islam in my car Islam when I act with Muslims with non Muslims, Islam with my friends, when I'm hanging out at midnight, Islam with two sisters one one of them is saying, You know what? She's backbiting about another than it gives me the hikma to say, you know what, maybe we shouldn't talk about this now. Don't make them feel awkward, but he will talk about it later. While Oh, Katie, hello, mushy deikun. Even if the mushrikeen have hatred for this, Ben sisters, I spoke for approximately 10 minutes, I just want you to think about what I said. All I said so far is what you hear every Friday, but just
without the translation. So when I said in Alhamdulillah mother who was dying, who wanna Sophia who want
it's just because we hear it every Friday. The issue at hand is it doesn't affect it doesn't hit the buttons that it's supposed to. Why? Because the purpose of our Dean has gone. The function of Islam is nothing more than on Friday. I feel a little spiritual. Because I hear some Arabic words and they make me feel good. I challenge me. We go to Jamaica, we feel good. And then we go home and everything is still the same. The TV's still the same, the satellite still the same. Everything's the same. So today, in a few moments, what I would like to do is take three purposes, three functions of Islam, so that we can revisit why Allah subhanho wa Taala asked us to do certain
activities. So when we think let's take three examples, so then when you leave the Juma Bian and then hear the hookah let's take goodbye as the first example which by itself what's going to happen on the member? What happens on the member happens every Friday. So let's revisit into a Juma surah number 62 in the last three is Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us
Oh you believe that's us we're the VIP club we're the special people that are lesson Oh people who believe and when you call someone with this but when you add the Yeah. Are you have Latina Allah loves us. Allah doesn't say people who believe
he man. He says no oh my beloved who believed in me, me yo will Juma and Yama Jima first Tao Isla de la come to the remembrance of Allah. So if you want two functions for Juma the function number one of Juma is to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala so that when you go out and someone says this is haram, this is halal. Touching the forehead of your wife when you come home in the evening and and telling her that you love her. This is Islam
telling your children Alhamdulillah you look nice today. This is Islam. This is the first function of Juma but if I come to Juma keep my head down and read a newspaper or a stateside people text in the clip. It drives me crazy, but some handle Allah has blessed you. They sit there they're texting and they're like okay, are you done yet? Brother? I gotta get to work brother slump. So then we have this urge him to leave but Allah subhanho wa Taala told us think about it this way if you never attended any class, any Byeon anything, but you attended 52 Juma Cottbus, for 10 years, you could finish a PhD in Islam. But Allah subhanaw taala gave us this macom so that maybe if you do if you
leave today say brother, I don't understand the Arabic. Yeah, salam, it's almost the same goodbye every Friday. Why not record it? Why not understand what it says? Because the second function of Joomla is what blows me away. The second function to Joomla is the narration we find in the sound books of howdy in Jenna. Every Friday, what happens in general, maybe we didn't know I didn't know this. In Jenna, every Friday, Allah subhanho wa Taala calls out to the people of Jenna. And it says yeah.
The knock at your front door of the house of Jenna, or the small light creatures of light, and they say Allah has called you. Allah wants to have a banquet with you, every Friday and for my sisters, know that on Friday mornings you will go to a market, it's a salon, and you will go there and your you will have a literally a place that will manicure a pedicure that will make you clean, and they will also put makeup on the faces, because there's nothing to make up for. But there's something to increase. And when you return from this salon from the hobby, your family will see you look more beautiful than when you left. But then your family will say but we have to go. It's time to sit in
the banquet of Allah. So the people will enter in genda and say, Where shall we sit and they will see a huge banquet. And upon this there will be tables in the front row. And the people will ask Who are those tables for the angels creatures of light, we'll say it's for the people who sat in the front row of Juma. It's for the people who sat in the front so that they could sit so everyone will sit and this is not like you sit here. This is practice run. This is the dry run. You know like before award ceremony, they have the practice there. Allah subhanaw taala tells us in Samadhi it's like a lazy boy chair, you will sit and recline and then you will recline on these class couches.
And after everyone has taken their seat who will speak to us, Allah,
Allah will speak to us. So when you come to Jomon you get tired and you get bored. Think about the purpose. It's a dry run. It's a practice run, so that we can hear the words of our Creator. So if you have the time, learn the Juma Hooda in Al Hamdulillah. Indeed all praise and thanks are due to Allah. Why does he talk about Omar and Othman and the Allahu taala on him? What's the purpose of the Arabic cookbook? The function that's just one we can complete the Hadith but if you have the opportunity to learn this Hadith, what does Allah say to the people of Ghana? I wouldn't be able to give you the I wouldn't be able to say it without breaking down. But Allah wants to speak to us.
That's why he calls us yeah, you have Latina Amina, second function.
The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sent it down to us. He sent it down to us the purpose of the job. This is not just men or women. Let's think about this in a broader scale. Allah subhanho wa Taala didn't just want us to wrap something around.
Our head, Allah subhanho wa Taala didn't want us just to wear a certain type of clothing. But the purpose and function, the maqasid, the Mk said of Juma was to remember a lot and the mocassin are the purpose of the job, even for the male, and for my brothers, who feel like wearing the clothes that are designed solely by people who are from the home of loot. So if you think about it, why am men? Why are our shirts getting tighter and tighter? What is the attraction of that? Think about who designs our clothes? Think about why our pants were guys leave the sisters alone yell yell at them later. Why do we men who go into such that, in America, I can't do such that I hate praying in the
second row. Because it's read every day. I hate praying in the second row because you have to see everything. When someone goes into such depth. And if you think about it, the function of a man is to do work. But when these clothes are very small, what happens you don't lift your hands, you don't lift your hands to do the function of a man. So in the same way as our clothes get tighter and smaller. Think about what Allah subhanho wa Taala asked from us. He didn't say this is the only quote that you could wear. But he said a loose fitting cloth, a cloth that demeans that gives a notion that I'm a man. And because I'm a man, there are parts of my body that I need to have loose
clothing on. And for my sisters, this same reminder, how could it be that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent the IR down in Surah Surah Noor and throughout July be hidden? How could Allah say, hey, job, everything else, his foot? And here there's a hijab on top. How does that make any sense at all? Ask yourself Is this what we'll go to a lot and say, a lot, it made sense to me. I put it I wrapped a tight cloak around my head, painted my face with as much as I could get on it. And then everything else was open for market. This is against the function of Islam. So in the same way, if I use this as a paperweight it might work. If I use this phone as a weight, it would work. But then someone
would say that's not the function that's not what a love wanted from it. So Juma is to get closer to Allah to clean, clean ourselves to cut our fingernails to get ready for the function of meeting a loss of Hiawatha Allah, but more over and it's just a small mention. If on Juma everyone will clean the front of their homes if everyone kept a cleaner appearance on Juma and someone asked you Oh, you look very sharp today. And you mentioned the words. It's the day of Juma. Within a year everyone in the UK everyone in Manchester would know the mahkamah Jin Juma if you didn't double Park and make it difficult for the non Muslims around, they would appreciate Gemma, they'd be like it's the one day
the Muslims behave. But in the same function, we have a job where Allah subhanaw taala told us to behave in a way that's befitting of a human being. And the last comment on clothing, animals their skin, it's tight. Allah says we're not animals. So we were things that are loose as my time finishes. There's one more thing Allah subhanaw taala centers and it has a function. It has a purpose. Our Deen everything in our Deen has a purpose. Even when I lift my hand What did Musashi Salah when he came around the mountain? Allah subhanaw taala told him to take off your shoes. What did Allah say about Salah namaz that we pray five times a day
a victory? Salam namaz is not the motion. It's to remember a lot so you count it for me in the first 30 seconds of Salah. How many times do you remember Allah subhanho wa Taala so when I say Allahu Akbar Allah Subhana Allah hum ob hum deca What about aka smoker? What Allah Allah Allah have a euro and when I say RO Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in the first 10 seconds of Salah. I literally said Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. Now if I took a second to think about that, how close could I be to Allah? But when Salah becomes Veronica Lama will become the Lord Berserker.
What that's what Salah becomes. Then you ask yourself when you say a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Have you remembered a lot more, has a lot come into your heart and said, whatever anger you had between you and your spouse, right, your your wife didn't put enough salt in the doll or in the homeless, you smiled, and you said, I'm really upset. I'll make touriga I'm really upset. I'll make two Raka is the anger still there when you say Salaam to this angel if you want to
To kiss up to somebody kiss up to this angel, he writes the good things. And then make sure this angel has nothing to do. He gets bored yet. Good Stoker leave me to do something. So this last thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us is cool.
And not only did he give us and I have about four minutes left, so in these four minutes it's an ayah from Surah Yunus it's a beautiful book are on bestseller on Amazon, I recommend it.
It is not such that this full on
it's not possible that this foreign was produced was written was manufactured by anyone except a lot.
On the contrary for everyone on fox news and everyone in the public media who thinks for is fake Wallachian. On the contrary, while I can just do a levy Bay in a day, it makes solidify it solidifies the message between the Torah and the Injeel the Bible, the Koran reiterate the message of your ethos, and reiterate, it says again, the message and the story of Musashi Sarah, two thirds of put on what is called a Mousavi omiya. home the same way musala salam screen for his people Allah subhanaw taala tells us that this hold on was not produced by anyone except Allah. It is a book that reaffirms the Bible, the Torah.
And it is the book what
it is the book that testifies and explains all of the rest of the Quran the Quran, you firstly know bah bah, bah, bah, bah, the Quran explains itself. Loud, are you Buffy? And there's no doubt in it. And who am I to proclaim? There's no doubt in the Quran? I'm nobody. But who is uh, la la la Buffy Mirabella. I mean, there's no doubt in it because he's the Creator of the heavens and the earth. By the way, if you want to just take one note labx Arabia is a doubt where there's fear. Like it's not just I doubt the book, I doubt the book because if I follow it, something might happen to me. If I read or and then I have to act on it. Allah says there's no fear this acting on Quran this living
Quran, this being amongst the religious crowd, Larry Murphy, there's no fear in it, your life will become better, life will become easier because Allah will love you more. So the purpose of this Quran was not so that in Ramadan happy sob could come and read the whole Quran as fast as possible. And then we hit the ground 20 times, shuffle Ramadan and lady on Zee Hill.
It's a book that's meant to be read in a specific time. And that's every moment that we have free. Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us this go on. And when the Sahaba radi Allahu taala on had the Quran written on shoulder bones of camels, and they had it written under stretched skins of oxes. Maybe we would say they are that we would say oh, this is disrespectful, but where was their fur on? It was here. It was here and it was here. Their Quran was in their action and the nation that read, recited, understood and implemented Quran owned the earth for 800 years, and the oma that wrote the Quran on the wall and put it into a little amulet.
You can see what we are now. So now's our chance to turn back to the Mufasa. The purpose of Juma the purpose of hijab the purpose of a father being a father so that when your child leaves the home, you can kiss their forehead, and that way you see what they're wearing. Maybe if your son is bringing home some extra cash, don't turn a blind eye, ask where's the money coming from? And then when he says no, just smile and say, Okay, take this answer. Even if they're lying to your face, chama Allah knows better my son. Allah knows better. When we go back to the state that Allah subhanho wa Taala asked us to then Allah subhanaw taala will give us those who came late. There's one ayah for you to
read in the law yet mode will be largely where the sun you will eat. It is indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is for our late comers who didn't catch the beginning. Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala has enjoined three things. He is enjoying justice be just even with non Muslims don't live in the UK, as if you're in the minority. We're just here for money. live here with justice. Take care of your white neighbor the way you would take care of your neighbor. Take care of your neighbor the way you would take care of any other neighbor. Take care of
The minority neighbor, the African, the African neighbor, the way you would take care of anyone, have compassion for them with justice, what your son will eat
and have consciousness and awareness that Allah sees us even at this Juma? Allah sees us. And when your family asked what you thought about when your wife says, what was the piano about? Don't say, I don't know. Where's the food? See, I don't know, guy had a crazy American accent. But it was something about Alan loving us smile. They'll have something your wife will have something to smile with as well. These are the three things enjoined the three things forbidden. Why?
Allah has forbidden flasher. jelica Moloch somtam. Allah said, No, it's gonna do something. It's gonna affect your heart. So the dirtiness that we see on TV, turn away from it. If it's one scene or two just turn away Pasha. Allah called justice and the opposite of justice is fascia 100 fascia you will monka
monka is the line in the sand between halal and haram. Oh, all my elders. Don't walk up to the line and say is not that haram walburg oppression, anything that makes sense. It's from Allah. Do not oppress yourself. If something made sense at the end of this opener Quran, read the book of Allah. Does that level Clayton? What are the good Allahu Akbar Allah we honor matters now.
