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

It is my honor and privilege to stand with my brothers and sisters here in the City of Manchester in the United Kingdom. And I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala, who has brought me from the furthest end of the earth from this land, to make me a new from those who are gathered together in this life, always in his worship, and if we don't meet once again, then we meet in Jeddah to fulfill those with Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Eva de la

00:00:27--> 00:00:34

I always and I'm sure you will reflect upon our Ramadan as its conclusion comes to an end.

00:00:35--> 00:00:49

And I begin to say to myself in new today that it is not too late Subhan Allah as Ramadan enters and it's almost as if this Ramadan has begun, that now with conclusion seems imminent.

00:00:50--> 00:01:36

And for myself in you we always take stock and this Maha Sabha this accountability that we take from ourselves is a sign of faith, where you regret what has lost and where you anticipate hope for the future. You always think of the words of some of those who have passed before us who had that magnanimity of being servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Armando katabi would say ha Cebu and fujisaki cobbler and to hassle with the new hair cobbler and tools and with the Haier old out of the Aqua, yo mulatu Bella saraya. account for yourself before the accounter Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will account for you and weigh out your deeds before a law will weigh them for you. And prepare

00:01:36--> 00:01:40

yourself for the day of display when no secret will be hidden.

00:01:42--> 00:01:49

And we account for ourselves at the end of the month of Ramadan. With a hadith of an Abu Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:50--> 00:02:04

I asked myself in you this question as I begin this hotel today. Will my Ramadan be sealed with good? And what has proceeded of me has it been received by Allah with acceptance

00:02:05--> 00:02:11

as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam client declined and ascended this member on a Friday Juma hookah.

00:02:13--> 00:03:05

He climbed the first step and he made an oral oral drive. He said I mean, and the second step, I mean, and the third step, I mean out loud that those who were sitting could hear him, but this was something that they had not seen him do before. And he turned in as if there puzzlement on his face instigated in him the desire to explain for Karla sallallahu alayhi wa sallam attorney gibreel for Kalia Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said gibreel was present and said to me, oh Mohammed and he spoke three words three do the dua of the mightiest of the angels that you are of the conveyor of revelation to all of the profits that you are of the guardian angel of an MBR and l

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

mursaleen.

00:03:08--> 00:03:17

As I climbed the first step gibreel said yeah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, men at Dhaka Ramadan. When you

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

sakata hula

00:03:21--> 00:03:43

May the one who lives to see the month of Ramadan, to be alive in its sacred sanctified days, and does not earn pardon and forgiveness and expulsion of their sins from Allah. May the one who lives in Ramadan and does not earn mellifera from Allah, may they be cut off from Allah.

00:03:44--> 00:04:10

So I said, I mean, out loud. This concept of being cut off from Allah is a serious statement. too serious to see the lifeline You and I have in life The only rope that attaches us to any safety or security and the underwater lusco the strongest and all the thing that if we let go of we fall implement Allah shatter

00:04:11--> 00:04:52

into a pit of destruction is that statement of La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah which is reciprocated by Allah entering us in when we plead with him. But when you're cut off from Allah, you are methadone. And there's only two states you can be macoun one macabre, accepted and drawn near or mcaloon we're not rude or you are disgraced and put far off to your own ability left to your own devices. So the Prophet said, I mean, see the month of Ramadan is the month of opportune time.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

And as the days draw close to their completion remember that

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

I have gibreel the prophets I seldom said I'm earning a loss forgiveness in this month is not just by plentiful of cm. It's not by how many hours you fasted. And it's not by how many Raka you perform for taloja it's not numbers, it's not quantity, its quality. And the heart was always the center of every affair that leads you to Allah. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was informed by a lot to say to us, in Allahu Allah young guru Illa Surah kumala Allah. Your Lord doesn't look to your fingers or your physique, when it can young little Isla khudobin alikum he looks into the depths of your heart, the sincerity it entails and the deeds that follow from it. standing before a law at

00:05:49--> 00:05:49

night,

00:05:51--> 00:06:21

and fasting from hunger with hunger and thirst in the day, our physical elements of cm but the intent of Siam was to quiet the heart to quiet it from its lustful leanings to haraam to subdue its charge that leads us further away from a lot. The element of standing and making our prostrations into the depth of the night was to bring us closer to Allah fest you would walk,

00:06:22--> 00:06:31

put your head into the ground, submit yourself in servitude, and that way you will draw near to your main curse upon and went to Allah, the Almighty Allah

00:06:32--> 00:06:59

and therefore in the month of Ramadan, don't find it strange that when I shadowed the Allahu Allah in the final 10 days when the prophets I send them, withdraw himself into worship and strengthen himself and leave off everything that called to the luxuries of the worldly life. When he made his act to cough and the Knights of light little country was imminent. I asked the question, what should I ask for old Nabi sallallahu.

00:07:01--> 00:07:27

You would think you know many of us when we ask, we want the person to give us a long list. You know, sometimes you find these strange books, they say kohala had 1000 times strings things. Something not established from the habit of the prophets. I send them what you found he gave one sentence. One sentence. He didn't say asked for this and asked for this and asked for that. He said one thing Allahumma NACA fu

00:07:28--> 00:07:49

honor Allah first. Oh my Lord. You love to pardon. You're the forgiver even if I'm not worthy out of your habits, your essence of divinity of who you are, you are the pardoner Oh Allah, I honor and love you because you love to pardon Allahumma inika fu to him.

00:07:50--> 00:08:26

You love to forgive you love to pardon. You love to overlook the mistakes of your servants your creation. For me. Pardon me? Make me one who is worthy of this Omar. That's it. That's our aim. Your aim and Ramadan is nothing more than your aim and Layla Carter is nothing more that if you're present. This is what you ask for over law. I acknowledge my sinfulness and I acknowledge You're the one who expels yourself the one who forgives and you're the one who expunges You're the one who can clear my record Oh Allah.

00:08:27--> 00:08:40

Pardon me, make me worthy of use of Hannah hautala May the one who does not live in the days of Ramadan and earns a loss pardon and forgiveness may they be cut off for hold to me.

00:08:41--> 00:08:43

Then I climbed the second step.

00:08:44--> 00:08:57

And gibreel said yeah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam madaraka walidah or Muhammad May the one who lives into the maturity of age

00:08:58--> 00:09:00

of one or both of his parents.

00:09:02--> 00:09:31

While I'm eufaula sakata Allah May the one who lives to see his father or mother one or both of them in their advanced age and does not earn a loss forgiveness. May Allah cut them off set them adrift by themselves. Talk to me. And they teach us that when two seemingly independent subjects are put together by the profits, I sell them, they're not as independent as you would outwardly think.

00:09:33--> 00:09:43

See, the theme that is spoken of in the Quran immediately after Allah commanding you to honor and worship none but he will Beware the the need

00:09:44--> 00:10:00

to treat your parents with us and not not to treat your parents good, but to treat them. Santa an exceptional on anything infinite attempt as being better a son and daughter today and hope to be better.

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

The day after and the day after and the day after.

00:10:05--> 00:10:06

Santa.

00:10:08--> 00:10:22

You can't even make you can even make an A sound of disrespect. Not a word, not a letter, not an SMS. Not a push, not a sharp, not a look, not even a sound well

00:10:24--> 00:10:25

off.

00:10:27--> 00:10:46

See, because some of us we think because we're hungry and thirsty in the day and we stand at night, but our relationships with those who we who we should love, who we should honor are in disrepute. We think that it's okay. I stood in total with 20 Raka Alhamdulillah. And then I go home and I slammed the door.

00:10:47--> 00:11:13

I can't share a kind word to the woman who fed me before she fed herself, who clothed me while she wore worn out, ripped and tattered clothing, to a father who sacrificed his pride and faced racism. Each and every day. He went out to work to put food in my mouth and clothing on my back. I come home now thinking 20 Raka has saved me from Allah azza wa jal.

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

lahoma

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

alamanda hubbie

00:11:21--> 00:11:26

reports that Moosa asked Allah Allah Eastern Europe, my lord

00:11:28--> 00:11:35

00:11:37--> 00:11:43

faqad Allahu Allahu Allah, it will be a butcher, butcher strings of Pamela butcher.

00:11:45--> 00:12:29

Where is Haruna newsha where MBR a butcher is gonna be my neighbor in general. So Moosa says, What do you mean? Show this man to me, Oh Allah. So Allah sends him on a journey and there's many journeys that Musa took in his travels. And Allah says, You will meet him next to this place and he will be selling and as a lord described, Musa finds this man had just slaughtered meat and took the best part of it. And he did, and sold the rest and moves a little bit before the night sets. He comes to the men and he says, I'm a stranger, Honey, can I stay with you tonight? I want to know who you are. I want to I need I need your help. He said come to my home, but I will be busy for the

00:12:29--> 00:12:37

first part and then inshallah we actually I'll be busy with my family, then I can give you attention. Follow me when they came home.

00:12:38--> 00:12:48

Moosa saw the men prepare a pot and add vegetables, and cook the meat, left the main cooking and he went into the home and brought from the top roof of his house a basket.

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

And in this basket was a frail old woman.

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

The men carried her to the river

00:12:57--> 00:13:03

and bathed her and changed her. Well my shop or shout out to her and combed your hair

00:13:05--> 00:13:29

and wash the old soiled clothing that she had been in and put them to dry and carried her back and by then the meat had been cooked. For us. I mean a lamb he took from that meat and he chewed it and after he chewed it, he puts it in her mouth, and every time we would feed her from the the food that he had chewed for her because her teeth were now missing due to the maturity of her age. Moosa says that I could see her lips moving, but I can't hear her words.

00:13:31--> 00:13:55

And then he put the basket up on the top shelf, and he turns two moves, and he says, Nazif Casa Helen, now I can come and look after you. Musa says to him Madhavi Who is this person to you for highlighting now oma, this is my mother. What comes after the Maha Tada. She was in in 10 years. I serve her in this way.

00:14:40--> 00:14:45

Allah contentment is shown in the contentment your parents have with you.

00:14:47--> 00:15:00

May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless us to that middle door of Jenna, the door of our parents Allahumma amin May the one who lives in sees his parents and it doesn't earn in

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

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

When I climbed the third step sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Hi legibly Lia Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:15:29--> 00:15:49

mundo que tenga who will amuse only Allah sakata Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or Mohammed May the one who hears you mentioned some of the law How are you a settler and does not send salah and Salaam upon you does not make the durood and the Salawat upon you.

Allahumma salli, ala Mohammed, Mohammed came so late to LA Brahim rather early Ibrahim Allahumma barik Allah Mohammed Mohammed Kamara tala Ibrahim, Ibrahim Fei Amina Naka, hamidah Majeed,

00:16:06--> 00:16:41

your nebia Salalah, hottie was seldom was an Amana he was a safe guard and security for those who he lived with on Earth. See the prophets before him. It was not uncustomary that Allah will send a pestilence and Wrath of Allah would descend that would wipe them out new loot and figure out what happened to him with Mussolini's Salaam. It wasn't strange that they would be wiped out, but the machinery keys they would come to the prophet and he would say, Angela Elena Ratan Mina Sana yeah Mohammed you keep talking

00:16:43--> 00:16:55

about the heavens would break asunder from the shield that we do, let it happened. So a lot of response to them. When that can Allah Who do you Aviva whom were enta Fie, some Allah.

00:16:56--> 00:17:03

Allah will not send wrath upon them, just because you live amongst them. Some Allah Allah sent

00:17:04--> 00:17:10

an amendment to him he records more than 39 blessings of sending durood and Salawat upon the prophets.

00:17:12--> 00:18:01

And one of the things that I instill in myself in you here today is that the drama that you make for yourself is incomplete unless you begin an end by remembering Rasulullah sallallahu he was the one who thought of you 1000 plus years ago before your arrival today, the one who restricted himself from promised by Allah, every prophets I seldom he said to us was given an agenda that would be answered by Allah, and all of the prophets I send them and messengers before me made it except me to die with each affair at me. I kept my job with me and have not used it in this life, so that I can intercede on your behalf in gender, so that you will be admitted to gender Allahumma salli ala

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

Muhammad,

00:18:03--> 00:18:39

the prophet I sell them segments Allah Allah yamakawa all of these are authentic hadith, the one who sends the Salah the durood upon me once sallallahu alayhi ashra Allah sends 10 blessings upon them. Once you remember him 10 arrive to you. The prophets I send them segments Allah Allah Jamar rotten raffia Bihar Ashura, the one who sends one solar upon me, it's raised 10 levels and the amount say 10 levels in Jenna and 10 levels in this worldly life in the love that people have in their hearts for them. Man Salam Alaikum Jamar Ratan hope is

the one who sends Allah upon me sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 10 of their sins are forgiven.

00:18:47--> 00:19:22

obeyed niqab would hear this for the Allahu Allahu Akbar and King to the prophets like Selim and he said Yasuda la de hajah I have a need. I have something I can't solve for myself. I have a problem I need to be sold Yasuda law, so I sell them I'm going to make do out for myself and include the solar watts upon you in it.

One of them is that your name becomes known to him. prophets I seldom said is the authentic hadith that when you make Salah upon him, only that Allah salatu salam alaikum when you make Salam upon me, your Salawat upon me arrives and is displayed for me to see sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:20:21--> 00:20:53

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in an authentic hadith, the one who makes Allah upon me, wrote the Allahu Allah. Allah returns life to me so I can return it to them, some Allah what he was. The blessing of the connection you have to the prophets I seldom is shown in your love of him is displayed in you doing what Allah commanded you to do by beginning himself with it. In the law, how am Allah

00:20:54--> 00:21:36

Yeah, Johan Lavina amanu sallu alayhi wa sallam de muchos de Allahumma salli ala Muhammad Ali Mohammed, the one who hears me so I am the one who hears his name and doesn't say some of the law to us.
