always we begin with the praise of Allah we send our prayers of peace upon our w Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we testify that there is none that is worthy of worship of Allah azza wa jal and that is Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says worshipping slave and final messenger. I continue to always remind myself and you have tequila laws, no agenda. And I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala inherits within me and you a love of a law of fear of Allah, a conscious awareness of him and hope in his mercy Subhana Allah that extends into the Hereafter, that we pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah causes this taqwa to be of greater profit and merit to us in our privacy and private
life than what we seek to say and show each other publicly. Allahumma Amin. Today I wish to speak about simplicity. To Pamela one of the Forgotten Sooners of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is to be simple. I'm not speaking about our clothing or our food or our home or our accommodation. I mean about how we think about the way we interact with the world. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a very simple man, he followed particular routines, and those particular routines were the hallmark of what we
Today referred to as the sooner there's certain things that you do by your habit as a Muslim, that you may not even consciously Connect as being something not just the ritual importance because the Prophet did it. This is why I do it, I sell them, but also because this is the natural way of life that mankind was meant to live. The prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, he was a natural human being he was a person what we refer to as little fitrah. He did what if you as a human being thought about more deeply and took into account of yourself? If you were to have the conceptualizations of science and economics and medicine and engineering if you were to put all of the knowledge of the world and
try to devise a way that makes you live in an equitable, sustainable, balanced harmonious life with yourself, the environment and others? It would lead you to the student on the tradition of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Why do you listen?
Today I wish to speak about the balance and harmony of harmony of simplicity
in three important levels, the first of them and the most important than is in the aspect of very bad. So Pamela, our brothers and sisters in South Africa have been going through a difficult week. That's Allah Subhana Allah youth a bitter home that Allah subhanho wa Taala keeps them firm and keeps them in a steadfast state in the difficulties that they faced overnight. They went Alhamdulillah some of our brothers from luxury and savings and ease and accommodation to having to protect their homes. Armed themselves repelled looters find bread, milk and eggs, overnight Panama in certain districts in South Africa, in Durban in particular. Some of those who are praying with us
here today have family and friends back home, who they have been anxious over their news Subhana Allah, Allah subhana wa tada tells us in the
will interview when you will be consistently tested. The word it's not Sabu or Bella is going to come. It's the Lamb of
definite definite ailment is going to come to you sickness is going to come to you loss is going to come to you deeper deprivation will come to you even from a seminar even from the luxuries in the fruits that you enjoy in life, there will be always be a moment where I will test your resilience, your patience, your forbearance and your endurance
the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam taught us really simple do
Subhan Allah sometimes when you sit with yourself and you say, you know I want to ask for this and this and this and this. The prophets I tell them in one sentence gathers everything in one simple sentence of his day. He says some Allahu
Allah who met in Aruba mean to how silly
was that while he is awali neomatik water, how will you feel? I asked you all a law to protect me from the change of my condition in life that I'm happy. And then I wake up and my condition has been changed, or the near me that you gain you withdraw it from me.
We're at an automatic that I wake up and I'm surprised by your anger. So panela Some people have lived the life where so that is missed.
Zakah is missed. rudeness is performed eyes wander to
sinfulness is practice without a feeling of agitation and sadness to it in the heart. And assuming that everything will just continue. And then there's a surprise when a change in your life happens. So Pamela there are two moments where Allah tests us in life. One test is out of the love of Allah.
A harm may befall you. And it's because Allah loves you. He wants to balance your life. He wants to give you a simpler test than one later down the road.
There was a man they actually used to rejoice when difficult things would happen to them on a regular basis. The prophets I send them says as narrated by the man that a believer has what is referred to as saalbach a headache. There's always something on your mind, always something troubling you this is a llama of river of Allah Subhana Allah Allah loves you when he is preoccupied you that there are hurdles in your life.
The other way that a lot tests us that's the first way. The other way is nothing happens
and you look up in the sunshine
I mean the birds are singing. The milk is plentiful, the honey is sweet and you're sitting back and you don't see the storm that's on the horizon. The Tempest is about to arrive. The wind has not yet picked up but as you're sitting you're unaware that there's nothing that has adjusted your imbalance with Allah subhanho wa Taala what either hula hula mu flit.
The prophets I seldom says when you see, evaluate Allah, your abdomen, your hip, sometimes we look at someone you say, how do they get away with it? How do they do all the things? How does a person have this audacity?
Allah you're hoping that when you see Allah giving somebody everything they want, everything they love.
That same person will be
there in a state of displeasing Allah. Fat Lambie and now hosted rajalakshmi nama know that Allah slowly brings them to an end Allah gives time. But when it comes with either a hunter who lembu flit when Allah takes them, they are not like go We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to continually adjust our life as he did with the prophets and messengers of Allah. Look at the life of our whenever you Mohammed's Allah Allah He was sending him from hurdle after hurdle after hurdle after hurdle that remained with Him until the final moments of his life, that even on his deathbed, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, in a little melty Lhasa kawach, surely in depth, there is pain, some of the love
it wasn't even I want to be, as I said, Abdul Rahman, the son of a co worker, he says to me, also Lola, our in Nicola to it, do you feel this pain more than others we've seen because this is an increase in your reward. He said, Yes. So a lot what he was saying.
We come back to simplicity.
When you look out into the world,
when you look into your own life, and you see that there are things that need to be fixed, begin with the simplest of them. This was the son of the Prophet sallallahu. It was
and the simplest thing for you and I to fix that has the greatest effect is the regularity of our namaz and our Salah.
Look at the look at how simple Allah has made for you and I the ability to change the condition of your state. In the Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari A man came to the Prophet I sell them as on the day of tomorrow, as the prophets I said, I'm about to lead the prayer. He comes up he says, yasu Lola, so I said in the
Messenger of Allah, I was kissing a woman who doesn't is not my wife. Pamela, could you imagine? Somebody comes to the Messenger of Allah say Salem, admitting something like this? From the Sahaba of the nervous I sell the prophets I seldom said Danna Masami, stop. Don't talk about this. Now. Let us finish our prayer.
For Celebi, human why selling the Prophet led the prayer to masala then the Prophet got up to leave to run to go away. He doesn't want to see this man.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam the man catches him. And he says you're also the law. I did this. The prophets of Allah He says, I learned to solve the manna heaven you just finished your prayer with us.
The better Yasuda?
He said, the hopper Allahu Allah. Perhaps Allah has forgiven for you. You're seen out of the repentance you have in your heart now don't say Mashallah. Shall Yeah, this I have Bihari. This is a green ticket. Yes, Chef la What's the meaning of this heavy? Could you imagine that? That this strength it would take for a person who's repented to Allah to say I want to be sure Allah has forgiven me that I'm going to ask what am I said to embarrass yourself? Well, you might not come to an image that you love and say chef I did this I was watching this Harambee, you would. You'd be shy to say it. You wouldn't be too embarrassed. But this man comes in admit to Rasulullah so I sell them
that may be the puppet my order a punishment for it. But his Toba in his heart. This thing called Toba, of asking Allah for forgiveness was sold simply by the prophets. I send them saying Didn't you pray with us inauthentic Howdy,
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the one who makes a will do as they wash their hands, the sins begin to fall with the drops of water.
As they wash their face, the sins begin to wash from the eyes, as with the drops of water, and when they stand in front of a law and they say a law.
All of their sins of the day are put on their shoulders and when they make
In another Hadith, authentic hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when you wake up in the morning that it will not matter if you set yourself on fire through your sins
you make your will do from natural saloon
your Salah extinguishes the Hellfire you would have put yourself in full moon you leave and you do something you said something you saw something you ate something you acted in a way that is unbecoming. Full Metal saloon you pray us
in authentic hadith and Muslim, or Salatu
to whom that image to me but
each of your five daily prayers the section in between them from one payer to the next is forgiving if you pray the next one, and the next one and the next. From one tomorrow to the next day, or the week is forgiven for one Ramadan, Ramadan, Ramadan is forgiven.
On Monday in sha Allah for the majority for most of us, the day of fasting of the day of alpha for some people on Tuesday with the difference of moon sighting is a day with the prophets I seldom recommended for us that the one who fasted their sins for the year before and after are forgiving,
simple aspects that raise your rank in front of Allah that increase and allow you to protect yourself from harm, and to redeem yourself from mistake.
Second, the prophets I said, not just in a spiritual way, he was simple, but also in a physical and economic way.
It's narrated in the CLR that the king of Egypt sent to the prophets I send them a surgeon, a medical doctor, to be as a servant to attend to the people in Medina. This was, you know, it's not in Arabia. They didn't have doctors the way they did in Egypt and in Greece and these places. So this doctor enters into the Medina and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says, Who are you? What are you doing here? What do you need? He said, I've been sent to you with the group who has been sent after the king received your letter that will help us the alim of Egypt, and he sent me to help and to teach your people how to treat themselves and to provide you her herbs and medicines.
The prophets I send them said, Gee go back home.
He said Why? Who would reject I am the top surgeon top medical doctor of our people that were in this era. As I said we do not hide yet. We don't need you know, we are the type of people
that had an agenda we don't eat until we're hungry
we're either acana lamb nashbar and when we eat we never eat to our full Salah lives look at the simple direction of the prophets Isola
look at the balancer. Look at how he thought about wellness and health and health. Look at the sooner fasting Mondays and Thursdays you turn on the internet and just look what's a good way of keeping my blood sugar down my cholesterol down my weight in proper order regaining better sleep what's a better way of having well being and good mental health you should do intermittent fasting first a couple of days go hungry a couple of days in the week. Your body repairs itself. The moment you begin to enter into that state of sleep let alone the month of Ramadan
simplicity in economics
the prophets I said them would make a dua he would say Allahu macrina melodic and harmonic Oh Allah make the little that is Hillel that we earned more than enough so that we don't look to what is haram I don't want the Haram I don't want to go into the things that is going to ruin my asset or because I'm seeking the dunya
well was Nina big MC our enrichment big is you that I'm wealthy because I have a loss of Hannah with Anna I'm NC wack that I don't need anyone but you Yeah.
After Tony Salahi delight, Allah will speak about a third of the ways of simplicity of the Prophet and hematite so that we can immediately apply into our life, which is his engagement with his family, his children, and his people and community of color holy hair that was stuck with him while all the money went
I haven't done enough Alhamdulillah Hamza *reen was so that was set out my other thing you did more saline
So you do not have even now whenever you know Mohammed Nabeel omiya he was a he was sent into Sleeman kathira
One of the amazing hadith of Abdullah numerous Rudra the Allahu anhu narrated in
an incredible hubby's.
The people of Kufa, the people of Iraq, they complained to this great Sahabi this one of the early
Sahaba, who entered into Islam, the first person to recite the Quran in public in Mecca surah to black man, the one who the Prophet said about him if you learn the poor and learned from four people, the prophet named him as the first one, Abdullah Abdullah if you're if you're going to learn more and and i'm not with you, for people like me much rude Why didn't you jump over here
by the prophet names from Allah and he was
and they didn't elaborate is number four.
So the people come to him and they say, why don't you teach us more? You only teach us on Thursday, in the whole week, only one day for a few hours. He said cathodic alumina rasulillah slice and this is how the Prophet tosses solo license not to just sit there and say memorize memorize memorize, learn learn learn had done that so that you don't dislike what you're learning so that you don't become lazy from it so that you don't resent what Allah has sent to that you should celebrate a Mahatma
the prophets I seldom Canada
he wouldn't expose just sit there endless talking with people so I sell them they will take the condom
you can count the words the sentences he spoke on your hand
for this whole block, the province I sell them said have you seen the Sahih he said from the sign of a person knowing the religion is that when they give the hotbar the hookah is short but when they read the for that it's long they know that
but the hotbar is short because the purpose is to be simple upon people. Aliya the Allahu anhu he reports handy to know
when you speak to people speak about the subjects they can understand about the religion or to a Buddha you can be about you can have a law sort of you want people to deny a lot in the messenger if you speak about abstract things they can't understand.
One of the problems at times that we have is that we make our Deen more complex than it's meant to be.
The idea that has a third of the reward of the Quran is called whoa Allahu
Allah who Solomon lemelin what a mewling what a mucuna one,
a simple statement that is translatable in every language of the world.
For the very simple purpose that simplicity is what leads a person to success.
And when it comes to your home and your family and your community, when it comes for us to gather together come together on the things that unite us that are simple, and not on the things that are complex that can lead us to being descended from each other. I leave you with this hadith to think about it. The prophets I seldom said either optimal for an hour left to fee. If you're sitting together and you begin to read the Quran, but you begin to argue about its meaning.
Leave it and depart. Panama you might say the prophets I seldom say close the plan. No more reading. No more class no more talking close up, Ron, it's better for you to close on. And everybody leave when you sit there and argue over something with a foolish ill intent. Because our Dean is one of simplicity. It's not one of vulgarity of debate and sinfulness of purpose. We pray that Allah Subhana Allah leads us in our homes and our families to that which is pleasing to Him in these 10 days of the hedger as we approach Monday and Tuesday for some let us get ready for the fasting of the day of alpha let us get us ready for the celebration of the day over eat. On the day reading
Sharma we will be praying here when you wake up in the morning it is the suit of the prophets I tell them not to eat too much before you come to the Father and the Salah should be early inshallah 730 hour text me at eight o'clock sharp we begin the sola be eating Allahu taala The sooner come not having had your full meal unlike Ramadan Mashallah we've been fasting eat something right that's assuming that you eat when you come to the masala come dressed nicely in a pleasing state to Allah
Do those who will be with you. For us as brothers perfume yourselves and dress nice and bring your wife and your children even if your wife and daughter is not in the state of praying, it is soon enough for them to attend, even if they are a distance from the phone that to hear the moment a lot to hear the word that is after. And in particular in the days of either lava hot to give charity especially for women to give charity. And this is narrated by Al Bahati that the Prophet left the section of men when to the section of women with beloved Allahu anhu and Delilah held his clothing open so that the women had an opportunity to give their soul to heart and to give their charity on
that day of need. It's a day of commemoration, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make each and every one of us that the band where we seek to come closer to Allah by sharing the meat with our friends and family and the poor arrives and that aid is one that is accepted from us to hang with by him somehow know what to add. And from the final soon that insha Allah is that after you're good at that you should enjoy the rest of your day in that which is Hello, enjoying food with yourself, your neighbors and those who are extended in our community Mashallah, I know many have open homes and other things may Allah excepted from all of us along I mean, also Linda whom I was sending Was it
