I always remind myself and you will talk a lot as a gentleman I pray that Allah Subhana Allah opens my heart and your heart to a greater capacity of loving him and fearing him and being hopeful in his mercy Subhana Allah to Allah, and that this is something that happens in our privacy and private life in our homes, more so

00:01:21--> 00:02:05

than it happens outwardly. I thought I would share this virtual sermon virtual about virtual discussion with you at the time of normally saw multiple Juma when we gather and meet it was my hope and prayer that I would be with my beautiful students at I mean, college, formerly Langford, Islamic college today lahoma I'm after 10 months of zero cases, we had one case in Perth, that put the city in a lockdown. And this is something that I wanted to make part of the message that I discussed today. Allah Subhana Allah tells us in sort of kunos hat that he that a hospital out of those rooferhow was a unit until I give you the imagery I give you the parable the lesson that when the

00:02:05--> 00:02:24

earth has taken on its majesty beautified itself its vegetation is growing, its flowers are blooming, its fruit is there for the harvest. Aha that is out of the whole earth seems ripe. Aha that a lot of those ahorro for how was the unit it's beautified itself and it's ready to be appreciated. Well of

00:02:25--> 00:03:09

course they do not lay here and those who live amongst it thought that they had dominated it powered it that they could ensure its rain would fall and its land would produce and everything would be as they wanted to be jaha morona Leyland una hora my instruction comes whether by night or by day, but yeah, now he hasn't even gotten them doesn't have the lamps. I leveled it flat as if it had no no prosperity or beauty before. Cuz then you can also double as Allah gives us the signs to mankind. There is a powerful Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I want to make a central aim of mine discussion with you today globally as well, not just for us here in Perth, because many

00:03:09--> 00:03:31

people listen to these discussions beyond us and hamdulillah. So I want you to kind of think and look inwardly into your life. One day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sat with the men, and the Prophet gave him five pieces of golden advice. Those of you who are coming to LA who are watching this live now on my website, you could see that I've shared a discussion by Abu Ali out of the

00:03:33--> 00:04:10

Gulf and Allah who Linda Weller, one of our dear brothers, and I wanted you to kind of pay attention to the dialogue that's found in it in this Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The Hadith is there for you to read and follow along. This is inhibited Juma. It's not something that I'm going to lead you in Juma prayer. So it's a discussion to remind us of our obligations to Allah. So the Prophet sits with this man and he said is attending Hampson couple of hubs. The word of aneema in the Arabic language is a very powerful word, it means to take benefit of something that you didn't have to work hard for some kind of a law, many of us we have these five things, we didn't

00:04:10--> 00:04:54

do anything to deserve them. We were born with these traits, five things that you have just by who you are in the privilege Allah gave you and the opportunity that you've been given in life. So make use of it, take benefit of it, because you didn't bring it into effect. You didn't work hard to achieve it. Come send publicans take benefit of these five things that you were given that when they are taken meaning it is a promise that they will leave you these are five things that will never last so Pamela May Allah Subhana Allah de Molina near MCC protect our blessing and grace and give us more than what we have a llama me. So the Prophet begins with the first one. Chabad, Becca kubla

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

hedonic that you take advantage of your youth before your old age, man. I'm getting

00:05:00--> 00:05:28

To kind of love nearly 45 years old now 40 in my 40s. And I could tell you that what I used to do what I used to get up to and, and the kind of energy that I had that begin to it takes now energy and effort to do the things that used to be done by me when I was younger, without energy and effort. So the profit takes take five advantage of the things before five, what is the adventure that I want you to take, I want you to enjoy your life. And that's the theme of this whole book.

00:05:29--> 00:06:08

I'm not telling you go out there and you know, enjoy your life you actually so kind of love when this lockdown came, how many of us felt a little bit of imprisonment a little bit, even the word lockdown the things that you enjoy that you never paid attention to the things that you had as a luxury that you didn't think could be taken from you at a moment's notice. Just to go out of your home without wearing a mask. Even my students Monday in sha Allah, all of the high school students have to wear a face mask in class, all of our staff and teachers have to wear face masks in class, all of their parents have to wear a face mask as they come to school. You know, so Pamela, where

00:06:08--> 00:06:45

where is the luxury that we used to have that now with an instinct has been taken? So one of those things is your youth your ability to enjoy your life when you're young? You okay, what's stopping you? You might look at yourself and say Alisha, I don't have time to exercise. I don't have time to go out with my friends. I don't have this. I don't have that all there's still many more years to come. So Pamela, how many people would say to me chef in Charlotte next year, I'm going to come to Hawaii with you another time for a book or maybe chef. Look, I'm still young and Charla there's still time. So Pamela one brother, he came crying. He said chef, you used to go year after year some

00:06:45--> 00:07:27

habla and every year I'd say this year, this year this year. And now so Pamela all of us are deprived. In my heart. I wanted to take my father in my heart I wanted to take my mother while they're able now Subhana Allah will they be able to go before their day has come? Will they be able to meet Allah Subhana Allah to Allah with that title of those who have made the Haji to Allah, they used to have the opportunity but were deprived your youth don't waste it. Number two, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, we'll say how to cobla your health, your good health, your Sangha, your well being before your before your illness. It's coming illness comes to us all so pandas

00:07:27--> 00:08:05

Allah, may Allah subhanaw taala utonium Elena Shiva and give us good health. But you have good health. What stopped you from going a little bit further so I've had a lot one brother, his knee. Ah, you know, Shanghai can't walk as much as I used to. I wish that I started walking before. I wish that I used to exercise before I got older. I wish that I did this and this before these things happen to me. Right? Enjoy your life from today. Spend your money on your family, spend your money on your home, spend your money on your health spend your money on your ability to enjoy life in these ways described by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then the Prophet speaks about your

00:08:05--> 00:08:50

wealth your reenact public fuckery the wealth the excess that disposable income before it leaves so handled la young couple they get married they don't have children yet Mashallah they're like all you know, no, I don't know if we should go to Hajj yet and go to Hajj. I don't know if we can go I don't know if we should take this trip go. All but we need to save for the future we need to Yes, but consider that the freedom of your time the youth in your days and the disposable wealth you have now Mashallah 1235 children later called de la hamesha. A fan, what you wanted to experience cannot be experienced not because you wanted to deprive yourself, but because you didn't take advantage of

00:08:50--> 00:09:34

these words of the prophets. I said, enjoy your life. Allah Subhana Allah, you know, he inspires in the prophets I send him that detail when you are Muslim prophets. I seldom said adonia who were to hotter, this worldly life is a beautiful land of greenery. When the law was a little comfy, how laws put you here to inherit it one from another. Enjoy your life enjoy the huddles of this dunya number four, your photo of a cat oblah your free time before you get busy. young couples before you get busy with the kids, young man who's finishing up University before you get busy with work, you know young people get get get yourself in a place.

This is the time to learn and to memorize and to read and to study and to multi have a multi discipline approach to your education. And finally the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and your life before your death

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

Your your you know the the dounia the life and the higher that you've been given by Allah is a precious gift. And Allah one says to enjoy our life one of the most beautiful Hadith of the prophets I said lamb mystery way but the mama told me the although its root is in Sahih Muslim Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said in Allaha, Jamil on your head boogyman of law is the source of beauty and he loves to see beauty where you are Yara s ourania mefo. Allah Abadi, Allah loves to see the effect of the beauty he has given his creation, adorning them used by them, Allah wants you to spend and what is hella Lola wants you to enjoy what is halaal Allah wants you to see it will fill

00:10:41--> 00:11:23

out travel and experience. Don't hold on to this world too much, or it will pin you down a holiday fill out some people that hold on to the earth too much. I don't want to let go, I don't want to move. I don't want to experience I want nothing bad to happen. Just gonna sit and the days and the weeks and the months go by and you find yourself empty. And if there is one lesson that I learned a lot I've learned from my father, my mother, one thing that has always been imprinted in me is that your savings is the knowledge and experience you have. It's not the dollar amount that's always important that what you can invest in your family in yourself in the experiences you share and the

00:11:23--> 00:12:04

books you read, and the places you travel and the opportunities you have, you know, some common law, there was a sister, you know, may Allah Subhana Allah have mercy upon her mother who passed away. And she said, Jeff, every year, I would say to myself, I'm going Me, Myself and my husband, we're going to go back home to visit my mom, his mom and my mom. Every year we would say that. And so Pamela last year, we said, we're gonna go this year and cut out a lot we couldn't go last year. And now we can go again this year. And now we can go again next year. So Pamela I received a text from a family in the United Kingdom that her mother had passed away. And she found so much grief in her

00:12:04--> 00:12:45

heart that I had the opportunity I didn't go. And I want to say to you, my dear brother, my sister that this has become a powerful lesson for you and I, that what you and I have experienced in this one week and others around the world in the times that we have been under lockdown or change conditions unable to travel. I want you to know that this should change your framework of looking at this world. As we do neck and neck and head he believes in this life the prophets I seldom said as if you are a traveler, and what have you the Sabine someone is still been like a charlatan. It's like you've traveled sat under the shade of a tree and then you continue your journey. So enjoy the

00:12:45--> 00:13:31

time and the opportunity that you have with you, your family, your children, may Allah open, give us prosperity in our homes, give us comfort and let this be for us the five lessons of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The first of those important lessons he tells us our young before our maturity and you could be 60 years young Mashallah, there's still a long time to go. It's not by the number, but it's by the mindset, your youth, the young the ability you have before it's departed. What leaves you with your youth, your health. Before you fall sick, may Allah protect us out of your wealth, before you experience a downturn and a financial difficulty, a loss of job and a loss of

00:13:31--> 00:14:14

security. And number four, one of the powerful lessons of our nebbia Salalah alayhi wa sallam, the freedom of time the luxury to come and go when the opportunities that we have before they are taken. And fifth, and finally, the life you've been given is a gift from Allah, enjoy it, enjoy it with yourself and your family and build the memories that will sustain you and then after one of your departure, may Allah subhanho wa Taala remove him well hum remove this feelings of sorrow and sadness and depression from our hearts. Give us the liberty of freedom of movement. Give us the protection and the shield of our faithfulness. Aloha meta net NF Ed Meena our Lord do not make our

00:14:14--> 00:14:54

test in life as a matter and material in our faith. Allahumma Ameen will suddenly lahoma What was it what baddeck Allah say you didn't know what have you been in whenever you know Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa send them Finally I end with the discussion about what to do for solothurn Juba. None of our masajid are open here in Perth at the moment. So you have one of two options. The option that I first prefer for you is to pray. So lots of and you and your family now you just make that and if Hama as if you did yesterday, first of all, and you pray together for Raka as you normally do, and that suffices you for today because of the conditions we are in the second

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

option which is also found in some of the books and some of the madhhab

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

That you can recreate your own Joomla if you have more than five or more than three people, three individuals with you. And this is something that you know is open to discussion, there's no harm in doing it. If you take that opinion in sha Allah, and you can fulfill those

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

that saw that the ultimate in Joomla I would need to be done by you. And it would be just simply the simplest way of making holberton Joomla is that you praise Allah, you say Alhamdulillah you order those who are listening to fear and be conscious of a law by saying a tequila or reading a verse about tequila. And number three that you read, cite the durood and the Salam upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that meets the basic requirements of Joomla in two cycles. So you say something and then you sit and then you stand up, and then you praise a lot of Juma with a louder voice in sha Allah with two prostrations or with two aka two Roku and Java mail accept from

00:16:00--> 00:16:10
