I remind myself in you of taqwa, Allah azza wa jal. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah makes you and I have those whose
consciousness awareness of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is better in our private life than what we seek to show each other publicly Allah whom I mean,
I wanted in sha Allah in this few minutes of habitual Juma to make a general reminder to all of us, myself, our staff, and also you, our younger students, about the adab or the mannerisms, the etiquettes the habits that we should have in entering and leaving the masjid and I know for many of this is something that you know, we're have been taught through practice. So Alhamdulillah all of you are most of you Mashallah come from families who have prioritized Allah and the concept of using La Ilaha in the law, that there is none that is supreme none that is worthy of worship none that you love, none that you fear, none that you hope for that is equal, or anywhere near that commitment you
have with Allah, that there is no maboob behalf in lulla. There is no one that's worthy of any worship, any obedience, any concern in a way that it is only given to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that you have accepted yourselves in your family that the path of righteousness, the sirata mooster theme, the place that you want to foot your footsteps in following the best of people who came before us in humanity. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that you've chosen his tradition, his way of life, his sooner as a habit and as a practice. And therefore it becomes important to kind of remind each other of where the prophets lie Selim began and where he stopped in his behaviors,
especially as he related to the masjid. For us as Muslims, there's no building or structure that has more significance, more importance than the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala where a law's name is mentioned. The youth karate has small the buildings that are established
or establish established for a very particular purpose. And Allah tells us in NEMA Yamato messaggi, the LA HeMan am Anna Billa, those who visit the masjid the place of suju. Look at the word Masjid, the place you put your forehead on the ground
are those who attend their first and foremost because they believe in Allah.
That's what brings us to where we're seated today. And in this moment, sitting on this carpet in this multipurpose Hall. The purpose of our assembly is to make this moment a moment of sujood so this becomes a Masjid for us. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said
There were five special things given to him that no other prophet no other messenger was given. They asked what are the things Oh messenger of Allah. We can only talk about one of them today. He said joy Let's all do the masjid and water Hurrah that the whole earth
has been made a house of worship for me and for my people, and that the cleanliness of its Earth, its raw materials are something we can pure out, purify ourselves to get ready for worship.
The measure that you sit in today, in this moment, it's a Masjid takes on that ruling as a place that follows and has the same sanctity
as the house of Allah that you normally would visit whether Majid Ibrahim or thornlie Masjid or measure the rock mat, rock man in God's nose, or the Perth city Masjid, which has been in this city longer than I am you and your parents and grandparents have been alive panela 15 years ago, we celebrated the 100 year anniversary of the first Masjid in Perth. It's nearly 120 years now that that Masjid has been in operation in our city longer than my lifetime by three times. A place where people have been gathering to worship. The first thing that Muslims do when they find themselves in a new place is ask where's the masjid because if you find the masjid, you find friends, you find a
home, you find Hello food, you find company, you find a place where your heart is meant to find ease.
So three important first steps, rules and regulations for the masjid. The first and most important of them is to treat it with respect Subhan Allah. One day the Prophet walked into his Masjid sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And as he entered into the masjid, he noticed on one side of the wall that somebody had spat, you know, sometimes you get sick, you have the flu, and you got a little bit of, you know, phlegm. And this person he was sick. So you know, he just said, well, nobody's making this jute on this. So he just turned his head and he just spat and a part of the spit had dried on the side of the masjid on the wall of the masjid. And the prophets, I sell them. One of the
beautiful characters of him is that when he was upset, you could read it in his face, he didn't need to say a word. One of the Sahaba looked at the profits of the lights element saw in his face that this upset him. This man ran home.
And he brought his most expensive perfume.
And he brought some water and he brought a rag and he walked into the house of Allah didn't say anything to anyone. And he came to that spot, He washed it with water, took it off that dry phlegm. And he put in its place a heavy amount of perfume.
The prophets I send them from a distance he said, send you have done a great house and you have done a great deed. And from that, we've always learned that anything that should not be in the measured that you have the power to clean to remove
becomes an obligation and a duty upon you within the means you've been provided. So if you're sitting there and you see you know, a tissue paper or a gum wrapper or with a villa him in there like that this would be in our Masjid. If you see somebody has soiled it with something.
And it's within your means to pick up the wrapper and put into your pocket until you leave. You find a bean not for anyone telling you this elevates you with Allah. You being a garbage man, a garbage woman, a garbage picker, because it's the house of Allah has honored you with Allah, that the angels record this and make mention of you.
The Masjid was always a place of reverence and respect. Number two, the house of Allah carries that name Baitullah. Look at the word Baitullah, the house where Allah is worshiped, that what you are here for is Allah not anything else. There is no Hadith where the Prophet ever looked at somebody and said, you're in the house of Allah be silent. There's no Hadith like this.
But yet you will never find that the Sahaba when they were in the masjid that they were speaking what is called, ie don't talk words that mean nothing or
about things that don't relate to the worship of Allah.
I will never say to you be quiet. If you're reading the Quran, I will never say to you, be quiet. Hush your mouth. If you're making your Vicar of Allah, I will never say to you be quiet. If you have a couple of students around you, one is reading to you a text from the Suna one is reading you something of the Hadith, or that you're making mention of Allah and your voice is a little bit louder. No one will ever shoosh you and tell you to be quiet.
But if you sit
and you're giggling, you're laughing. And you treat the masjid as any other place as any other house as any other room that you enter, then you find yourself having crossed the boundary that Muslims never had been known to cross.
The third way that we honor the massage
is that we contribute to them. So panela all of you have heard this you know the prophets lie Selim said that no one builds a house for Allah to be worshiped, except Allah will build a house for them in Jenna. It's an amazing, amazing Hadith of the prophets, I send them because everybody who prays where you will have made it a place of prayer for them. Part of the reward is yours. Subhana Allah, as you're sitting here today, one of our parents will get a third, a third of your good deeds. Pamela, you're going to say how you won't lose your good deeds. But as we were getting this mentioned, prepared. And as we were ordering these carpets, these carpets or special carpets, we
made sure that the carpets are 100%, natural wool, not not not carpet that can tear with these, we made it so that if you're meant to have if your view of thought is you want to prey on something natural, something that's like a skin of an animal, the hair of an animal, because we have students who follow different opinions, that one of the requirements was that the carpet would be natural wool to fulfill everybody's needs. We thought about it.
And one parent he came in, he saw this new carpet in the summer months. And he said to me, sure here Don't tell anybody who I am. But how much did this cost nearly $35,000.
He said, I have $10,000 for it.
And he gave that charity so that you and I can honor the worship of Allah and that he and his family can receive its reward. What a great act that you begin to think not How can I use the masjid? Not what I'm not allowed to do in the masjid. Not what I'm restricted from in the masjid. But how can I make it better? How can I add value to it? How can I make other people's lives comfortable in it? Some of you sitting in front of me I know that you joined us for a total We're your families would bring water and dates and sweets and leave it downstairs so that those who came to worship Allah here would have a good time and enjoy themselves. That is the spirit of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam who
was telefilm Allah, Allah Allah.
Allah hamdu lillahi wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina, Muhammad, Abdullah Abdullah Al al Abdullah Saleh slim. So what are three things that you can begin doing right now young and old to make our enjoyment of the masjid a way for you to earn reward? First, that when you arrive here, make your purpose is Allah. You're not here passing time because I have to wait until I get out to recess. You're not here to just chit chat until the economy is called. You're not here just to hang out with your friends until the next prayer comes. You're here the Moodle messaggi the law that you make possible your visit into the house and the place of worship for Allah subhana wa to Allah. So as you
enter into the masjid, the Prophet would teach us to make Do you would say Bismillah Allahu Akbar. You're entering into the house of Allah With the name of Allah, I'm here for you. Yeah, Allah. Wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. And I've come following the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Allah whom neftali of wherever automatic. Oh Allah, open to me the doors of all your forgiveness and mercy. That's the door we make as we enter into the masjid as you walk in and you're taking your shoes off. Bismillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah if
You can remember his Bismillah Alhamdulillah next time you remember the next part? Well salat wa salam ala rasulillah. Allah Houma Oh Allah, if totally open for me as well, but I've met in the many doors of your mercy.
Seek to add value to your stay number two. If you don't want to do any good deed, if you don't want to take a Koran and read it if you don't want to just sit there and say Subhana, Allah Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah, if you don't want to do anything good for yourself, at least number two, don't be the reason for somebody else missing good deeds. Don't be sitting in front of someone who's coming to pray, and all they can see is you fidgeting around moving around, giggling around messing around.
Your purpose is lead or Well, there are I won't do wrong, I don't want anyone to wrong me and I don't want to wrong anyone. I don't want anyone to disturb me. And I don't want anyone to be disturbed by me. If you don't want to do good, don't stop others from good.
And third, and finally
protect the masjid. Say Subhana Allah, like, if I was to tell you that there was you know, someone who was coming to, you know, you know, graffiti our Masjid. If I was to tell you, you know, I need a few young young men, young ladies to come and just be on guard. Because there's somebody who wants to write nasty things on the wall of our measured. Every single one of you would volunteer in CTF. Yeah, I'll stand on that side. I'll stand on that. If I see sir. I will let you know. Every single one of you will stand on guard for the house of Allah the place of our worship, the place that is of our respect.
What if you're the problem?
What if you're the one who comes up from the sand playing downstairs with your socks full of sand?
You didn't clean yourself up you didn't care to make a proper will do? What if you're the one who came chewing gum and you just put it down on the side because you can pray with chewing something in your mouth, and you just put it on the ground and left it?
What if you're the one who blew your nose because you have the flu and you shouldn't be in school and you were sick, and you blew your nose and just lift the tissues because yeah, he or someone will pick it up. What if you're the problem.
It means you can be the solution. You can be the one that makes the change that helps and allows everyone to benefit from the house of Allah. At the time of our prayer. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes you and I the guardians of the massagin May Allah raise from amongst you those who would be moms for our community men and women who will lead us in times of difficulty to come. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give you the ability to serve the house of Allah to build the masjid to honor the house of Allah by being regular in it. And may I leave you with these inspiring words of the prophets I sell them. He said that there are seven people on the Day of Judgment, seven types of
categories of people who will be given protection by Allah, and none other will get it. And only these types can gain this reward one of them
a person whom Allah can build masajid a person whose heart is holding hard, hard, holding tightly to the house of Allah, they love their house of Allah. They love the place of worship, they honor the house of Allah and a bad that they perform in it. May Allah make you and I have them Allah him that I mean, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to add to protect our staff and our students, our parents and our teachers, to lead our principal and administrators to that which is pleasing to Him. So Hannah went to Ireland to do terrorists from sin and error. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allows us to be those who will be guides of others in times of darkness and difficulty will suddenly Allahumma
