00:01:15--> 00:01:40

Always we begin with the praise of Allah. We send our prayers of peace upon our Nebia Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we testify that none is worthy of worship, but Allah azza wa jal and then our Prophet sallallahu ala USL LEM, the Messenger of Allah is his final servant is his final messenger and worshipping slave and serving peace and blessings be upon him, Allah Allah Amin.

00:01:41--> 00:02:24

Today in sha Allah, it's a serious topic, and Subhanallah as we gathered together on this blessed day of joumana, may Allah return us to many more gatherings where we worship him and honor him. We are in the final days of the month of Ramadan, which means in under 14 days in about 35 days, we will greet the blessing month of Ramadan. And one of the great auspicious occasions that we have in the month of Ramadan is that we have an opportunity to return to Allah reconnect in our relationship, be striving and struggling to do better good deeds that maybe we are not normally accustomed to in the other months of the year.

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

One of the most

00:02:27--> 00:03:16

difficult Hadith to discuss is where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam puts upon each and every one of us a responsibility of the relationship between them and Allah. Many times especially you might young brothers, as you grow older, you begin to realize that everything is your in your life is really about the decisions you make, and the responsibilities that you are meant to uphold, and the duties that you are meant to maintain, both inside you and with Allah, and with society and the relationships you've established with others. In an authentic hadith, the prophets I seldom said in the Asaka ness of those who are the greatest thieves

00:03:17--> 00:03:35

of those people who are the worst in the crime affect you and I as a Muslim, and you and I as human beings, it extends beyond our Islam into our humanity. There is no greater more despicable crime than for somebody to take what doesn't belong to them,

00:03:37--> 00:03:55

to use what isn't meant to be used by them without permission. But in this hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he speaks about something that all of us have as a fault within us. Of those who are the biggest criminals in taking what doesn't belong.

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

As Soraka NAS

00:04:00--> 00:04:06

is the one who seals from their prayer, sorrow come in solidarity.

00:04:07--> 00:04:10

You might sit there and say how does the person's feel in prayer

00:04:11--> 00:04:59

Subhanallah This is actually a true story. My mother, we were in emirate together. And while we were praying in the masjid of the prophets, I send them she was on the lady side. As she was in her route sujood with their face in the ground, making subdued, she felt someone touching her fingers. And she just thought maybe it's like a bug or something and you're in sujood you don't immediately look up. And as she rose up, Allahu Akbar, she saw that there was the lady next to her, had had her hand trying to pull off one of my mother's gold fingers. To Pamela My mother said because I was over traveled. You know, when you travel a lot and it was hot, you get swollen. She said if I wasn't

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

smoking,

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

And the ring would have just slipped off but it kind of got stuck. And when the lady couldn't get it off, she immediately got up left the line and left the Sala.

00:05:09--> 00:05:21

That's not the effect we're talking about. The theft we're talking about is somebody from their own self steals. insula Fallujah, rasool Allah

00:05:22--> 00:06:15

wa kafer use YES SIR for Salah How can somebody steal Inshallah, how do you steal in Sudan. So the prophets I send them said that when they pray, now your team Moodle, who I have well as you Judah, that as you stand before Allah, and you make your Roku, and you make your sujood, that you do not do it in the way that is owed to Allah in the complete way that is expected of you by ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and of the greatest crimes that you and I commit are not necessarily crimes against others, but crimes against ourselves. Allah always in the Quran, he says, avoid them and future home they wrong themselves. Natural Law have fantasy at home, they forgot that they were with Allah that Allah is

00:06:15--> 00:06:20

watching them, so Allah makes them forgotten. Allah makes them heedless.

00:06:21--> 00:06:30

Phantom Meza who as Allah Hoopoe baboon, when their hearts didn't want to be with Allah, Allah push their heart away from them.

00:06:32--> 00:06:57

Yeah your hand levena Am and Mr. G Bula. Are you who believe respond to Allah? Answer the call of Allah. We hear that call hyaena Salah answer the call to Allah what Rasul Allah and His Messenger either die from the manual he come when they invite you to the thing that gives you life Hi yah Allah Sala come alive in your prayer

00:06:59--> 00:07:46

while Mo and Allahu Luba in El Morro Bay, and know that Allah can be the barrier between you and your heart finding peace and faith. Could you imagine where Allah doesn't use another person to distract you from him that Allah causes your own heart to no longer want him? That Allah makes your heart no longer ashamed of him? That it makes no difference whether you're in Ramadan or outside Ramadan, it makes no difference. Whether you believe in Allah seeing you at that moment or not. The evilness of your soul is so great, you feel no consequence. So you'll receive even if it is only from yourself.

00:07:47--> 00:08:35

Each and every day as you come up for prayer. I shall Abdullah, lead you in Salah. As we continue to mentor you in your prayer, the one consistent theme that I've had ever since I've entered this school is to never be the policeman of your Sadat, I will never stand we will never stand with a clipboard, analyzing you men, you know holding you about how you prayed better or not. Whether you were distracted or not, we will continue to pull you aside. give you enough see her give you admonition inspire you to Allah. But I have never and I will never make myself as a barrier and put myself between you and Allah. Whether your relationship with Allah begins today or tomorrow or the

00:08:35--> 00:08:40

next day I in all of us will be here to help you.

00:08:41--> 00:08:44

Be with Allah and not steal from your own good.

00:08:46--> 00:08:51

The worst of criminals are those who commit crimes against their own self.

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

I leave you with this idea

00:08:56--> 00:09:01

where Allah Subhana Allah describes the moments that are our own drowns.

00:09:02--> 00:09:46

Musa has crossed and the ocean has saved them. And Allah created this miraculous event that the water is split, and the land is dry, and Musa and Benny Hassan el cross to safety. And as they get to the other side, and they look back, Pharaoh and his troops have arrived, they've come and it's at that moment, Musa is about to once again touch the water with a stick, he's once again going to hit it to close the gateway of Allah's mercy to close the safe passage across the sea that was given to them. And Allah says to him in Surah Shuara what to kill bajawa

00:09:47--> 00:09:51

Moses, leave the water alone.

00:09:54--> 00:09:56

What's Pharaoh going to choose?

00:09:57--> 00:09:58

Let Him decide.

00:10:00--> 00:10:21

Let Him decide what does he want to do? Could you imagine standing on the banks of that water body, you see this miracle occur, Moses and his people have crossed, you're on the other side, you can easily go back to Egypt Jeff around and say, I pushed him out of the country, I kicked him out of our land, you could still go back and be a winner.

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

But when your soul is so dark

00:10:27--> 00:10:31

when you've lost your compass, your relationship with Allah

00:10:34--> 00:11:17

for round stands at that moment and still continues, still crosses, thinking he has power greater than that of Allah. So Allah says, phenibut now who phillium Wahoo emmalin he was drowned in the water. But he is the one to blame. He is the one who chose other than my path. He is the one who was distracted from my way he is the one who was arrogant before Allah He is the one who thought time would never come. He is the one who didn't think that the day would arrive when what was known to Allah would become known to others.

00:11:18--> 00:12:01

take account of your heart. take account of your deeds with Allah. As you stand in front of Allah. This is where you weigh your Eman. This is where you take stock of your belief in Allah. This is where you find Allah in your life. And may Allah protect you from not finding him as an important part of your everyday I ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make you and I regular in our salah, and that of our future children and your future children and our Oma. I pray that Allah subhana wa Taala enters that we do. Also Linda whom Allah Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is still back home in the home can have.

00:12:08--> 00:12:09

Alhamdulillah

00:12:10--> 00:13:00

wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah What are three things that you can do right now in this coming prayer and then also in measurability SHA, that can make you better with Allah in your prayer, three things. Three quick things. First, before you begin with your tech Vir before you enter sada take a moment of pause, take a moment where you just stop and you just lower your head to Allah, you lower your eyes to Allah, you give your humility to Allah, refocus. recenter reestablish that connection with Allah, let everything around you go silent. Just mo have that moment with Allah before you say Allah Allahu Akbar, Allah, you are greater than all things in my life at this moment. Take that

00:13:00--> 00:13:09

moment and just stop your conversation. Stop your distraction, stop your worry, and just focus with Allah for half of a second.

00:13:10--> 00:13:46

Number two, focus on your reading of the Quran. Focus on the proper Tajweed of the Fatiha focus on the intent of your Salah that you are really saying, uh Hamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen I thank you, oh Allah for the life I have. I'm praising to you Oh ALLAH for the ease that I've been given. I'm thankful to you that I have been given safety and patients and health in a school and family that loved me Alhamdulillah for even the tragedies that I fall in that you've seen me through and helped me

00:13:48--> 00:13:51

think of that word and hamdulillah

00:13:53--> 00:14:07

and number three, that when you go into sujood when you go in your first sujood having your heart at your eye and an intention to ask Allah for what nobody else can give you.

00:14:08--> 00:14:56

Put in your heart that you are the one who is low. And Allah is the One who is all high and mighty, that Allah is the Giver and then you are the receiver, that you are the beggar and Allah is the magnificent that you work that condemned in the criminal and Allah is the judge and ask him from the mercy that he provides. I pray that Allah subhana wa Tada enters into our heart he Daiya and his light that Allah Subhana Allah makes you an eye in our Salah today better than we were yesterday, that Allah Subhana Allah forgives us our excesses and mistakes of the past that Allah subhanho wa Taala helps us to gain all of the reward of our sada that we don't lose any of it by being

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

distracted, that we don't steal from the good deeds of our

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

prayer that they become last. Oh Allah we ask you to make our select complete and to reward as we seek you your hammer rahimian. I pray that Allah subhana wa Taala blesses and protects our staff and our students, our parents and our teachers and our administrators and our board and our acting principle that Allah guides us and leads us all to that which is pleasing to Him and protects us from the path of the Shavon Allahumma Amin in the law when he Cata who you saw Luna Allah Noreen, yeah, you handed in some do Allah He was said the motor schema Allahumma Salli wa Sallim wa barakaatuh Abdic awasu They can never give me why he was so happy he was settled into Sleeman
