00:01:15--> 00:01:21

Always we begin with the praise of Allah we send our prayers of peace upon our Nebby Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:22--> 00:01:45

We testified that there was none that is worthy of worship, but Allah azza wa jal and then I will never use Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam is is worshiping slave and final messenger. I continue to remind myself in you have Taqwa Allah, I pray that Allah Subhana Allah wants to Allah increases us in our love of Him, our fear of him and our hope and His mercy, Allah Huma Amin.

00:01:47--> 00:02:41

Today in sha Allah I wanted to complete the third part of our belief and understanding of taqwa, which is to love Allah, to be fearful of Allah, but also to have a great hole in the Mercy of Allah azza wa jal, and sometimes as young men and women, those of you with us here in primary and high school, and even those of us as teachers, and as elders amongst you, one of the things that are times we forget, is that it doesn't matter how far we may stray or walk away from the path, that our return to Allah if it is genuine in our heart, and if we want to become better than what we were previously is assured in Allah accepting it and accepting us, not Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is

00:02:41--> 00:03:32

the one who says to us in proximity Westie, Aquila, che, that My Mercy is greater than all things and any mistake and any sin that I have or you have, it is one of the things that Allah's Mercy is greater than it. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is the one who tells us in Surah Zuma Kalia a daddy Alladhina Asafa fusi him laptop Neto min Rahmatullah say to them, oh my servants and Allah will still call you his servants still call you a believer still look at you with love, even though you may have committed something that is egregious and haram and sinful, that Allah still sees you as one of those who is worthy of His forgiveness. A lot of natural woman Rahmatullah. Even if you have

00:03:32--> 00:03:40

wronged yourself, wronged others done what's wrong? Don't ever despair, in my mercy and in my forgiveness?

00:03:41--> 00:04:32

Allah Subhana Allah Allah is the one who says in the prophets, I send them quotes. He says that Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Yeah, Abdi, oh, my servant or my slave. If you were to feel the heavens and the earth with sins, semester without any refer to lack our body, and you were to ask me genuinely for forgiveness and repent to me, return to me, asked me to be of those who forgive you and guide you to that which is better, I will accept it from you, even though you have committed the sins that are great, and that feel the horizon. Allah Subhana Allah Allah is the One who waits for us in the day and in the night to simply ask him for forgiveness. And I want it to be something in

00:04:32--> 00:04:35

your heart that you feel the value of redemption,

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

whether it's a mistake that you do academically, maybe there's studies that you fail to complete, whether it's a mistake that you have between you and Allah spiritually, assaulted February this morning was incomplete and not fulfilled. Whether it's something that's emotional in your heart towards another person, it could have been envy or anger.

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

hostility. And it's something you didn't say you're do but in your heart is this hardness and anger towards another. Whether it's a physical mistake, something that you've taken or seen or heard or said or did to another, there is nothing that is beyond the forgiveness of Allah if you take the steps to reform, and I want you to know that you and I are worthy of Allah's attention, you and I are worthy of Allah answering our dua, and you and I, if we just simply ask, we will find that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is willing to answer.

00:05:45--> 00:05:49

One of the things that I wanted to tie with this discussion

00:05:51--> 00:05:52

is the importance of voodoo.

00:05:53--> 00:06:01

One of our teachers, she sent me an email and she said, just Yeah, I want you to give a general reminder again, about the importance of although.

00:06:03--> 00:06:29

And one of the things that I think as Muslims we fail or forget, is that it's the small things that we do that can have the greatest changes in our life, if we are consistent in them, and if we have the right spirit, and I wanted to share with you some of the virtues of voodoo that give us hope in Allah cleansing us and protecting us. I shared with you the prophets, I send them

00:06:31--> 00:07:26

said to us, that of the greatest things that a person can do in their life is to be regular and consistent in making wudu. The prophets lie Selim says in the hadith of Al Imam Muslim law, you there were more than 11 men, no one will be regularly making wudu unless they're a true believer. So I want you to sync with yourself now. How often you make will do and I want you to know that will do is not just attached to Salah or to reading Quran that will do as an independent act of worship for no other purpose than just to cleanse yourself and make will do that that action is one that results in Allah's forgiveness. And Allah increasing your belief and Iman, it is only Muslims who make will

00:07:26--> 00:07:26

do.

00:07:28--> 00:07:52

There's no other person on the face of the earth, who does the ritual of washing their hands and gargling their mouth and cleansing their nose and washing their face and washing their arms up to their elbows, and moving water over their hair and cleansing their ears and their neck and washing their feet. Nobody does that.

00:07:53--> 00:08:02

Except those who have a belief in Allah. Which also means that no one intentionally misses it.

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

Unless their belief in Allah is incomplete, and is lacking.

00:08:09--> 00:08:14

One of the greatest sins that a person can do is

00:08:16--> 00:08:47

is to do an act of violence, your behavior in that which Allah has asked us to do something better of the greatest sins, is that somebody would stand in front of Allah, knowing that Allah commanded will do before their Salah and having no valid justification. It's not that they forgot exactly it's not that they don't know how is that they stood in front of Allah for prayer, unclean.

00:08:48--> 00:08:51

Cleanliness for us as Muslims is of two levels.

00:08:53--> 00:09:00

There's the cleansing that Allah asks of us. And that's where the Hadith of the prophets Allah Allahu Allah USL them

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

that

00:09:04--> 00:09:19

total a taharah shoot to Eman, half of your faith shows in your cleansing and that moment and that statement of Tahara it's actually in reference to do half of your faith is making will do

00:09:21--> 00:09:39

because it is the five prayers that are fulfilled only if you're in the state of will do. And there is no belief in the heart of a person who does not fulfill their prayer in Allah that can be completely describing them as a believer and as a Muslim and the prophets I seldom said

00:09:40--> 00:09:48

the Bane in our salah. What separates us from unbelievers non Muslims is that we are committed to our prayer

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

the prophets I seldom taught us that when a person makes will do that from beneath even

00:10:00--> 00:10:33

In their fingernails as they wash their hands, their sins begin to fall. When they wash their face, even from beneath their eyelashes, their sins begin to fall, that when they gurgle, their mouth from their tongue, any lies or gossip or in your window begins to fall if their heart was attached, seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala that even from every part of your hair, every strand of it, your sins begin to be removed, because of your will do.

00:10:34--> 00:11:04

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to make will do in some of the strangest times and places the prophets I send them even though it's a weak Hadith, although that rhythm I agree it's a correct understanding that if a person finds themselves overcome with anger, and you find yourself I'm not feeling well, I'm feeling upset that one of the first and best things to do is to get up walk away and make will do even though you may not pray.

00:11:07--> 00:11:28

Although there is no Hadith of the prophets, I seldom authentically reported where he says that you cannot read Quran unless you make will do it is the standard convention amongst Muslims, that we don't want to read the Quran just for the joy of its worship, unless we honor the book of Allah with making wudu first.

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

The prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

that we'll do

00:11:38--> 00:12:29

is one of the reasons he will recognize us on the Day of Judgment. And I want you to think of that day of judgment where the prophet describes it as a day of darkness. And Allah describes it as young will hustler the day where everyone will be carrying regret on something wrong, they said or they did. And in that darkness, in that heat, in that silence, where nobody could say a word or move an inch without the Command of Allah, where you are driven to where you're going to be by the angels, either angels of mercy or angels of punishment, where everyone in that moment is looking, and they're searching for their Nabhi there's one McFly Salam, there's Ibrahim, who are carried on

00:12:29--> 00:12:36

pulpits of light for others to see them and you're gonna want to be near Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:12:37--> 00:12:38

but it's not your choice.

00:12:40--> 00:12:47

And unless the prophets lie, Selim recognizes you and says, He is from my ummah, you will not be brought close,

00:12:48--> 00:13:29

you will not be given relief, you will be left amongst those who are in the punishment of that day. Now Allah describes it. He describes those who claimed Islam, but who were hypocrites in their action. In surah, Al Hadith Allah says that on that day, there will be groups of people who know each other will go day by day you know, whom we saw, and a barrier will separate them Bulkley know who he who here Walkman on the inside is Allah's Mercy is Allah's light is Allah is forgiveness is the link and that place of the Prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:13:30--> 00:13:37

was a hero whom in Tibet Hill ADAD outside is the punishment of Allah.

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

You not do not home.

00:13:40--> 00:13:58

And then the Kumarakom people on that day will call those inside and say, Hey, I used to be your friend. I used to be with you. We went to the same school we stood in the same line for prayer. We did everything together. And then they come Malcolm, wasn't I with you when you tell the angels to let me in?

00:13:59--> 00:14:10

Call you Bella. Yes. When I connect on Volume Two, I'm full circle and full circle. Yeah, you used to be with us in body. But you used to wrong yourself.

00:14:13--> 00:14:27

Used to fake and you used to be treacherous. And your heart was in it. You walked with us and talked with us and sat with us and even prayed with us. But you were not one of us.

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

What will save you at that moment?

00:14:33--> 00:14:35

Is it the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:14:38--> 00:14:48

that I will recognize you on that day in the darkness, from the light that will shine from your places of Woodall.

00:14:50--> 00:15:00

My arm my hair, my face my feet, they will have this light and in some narrations, a prophet says on a Ciroc that for some people

00:15:00--> 00:15:10

There emaan was so weak there will do it was so weak the only light they will have it's almost as if the tip of the thumb will turn on and then off

00:15:11--> 00:15:20

and it will be pitch dark and they will say oh Allah give me that light and then we'll turn on again for a second and they'll see and they'll be hoping for the merge and then off

00:15:22--> 00:15:29

and if that's all you have in the prophet sees you saw I sell him from a distance he says to the angels, bring them to me.

00:15:31--> 00:15:34

I will know you from your marking of Waldo

00:15:35--> 00:15:43

don't ever underestimate the virtue of will do I leave you with this hadith before June subtlest Raha

00:15:44--> 00:15:51

the prophets I seldom said Lola and Ashoka Allah Almighty, if I didn't know that it would be difficult.

00:15:52--> 00:15:57

I would have ordered you to make a fresh will do for every salah.

00:15:58--> 00:16:22

But at the mercy of Allah is that between maybe Valhalla Nasser or Joomla and ask you might not break your will do so you don't have to make a new one. But if you do, then it's Light upon light through them as they teach us it's like you put light on your mind you added more light will do with will do is Light upon light. It's better for you, if you only knew.

00:16:24--> 00:16:56

I want you to think of the DUA that we hear that we say as we finish our will do a shadow Allah Allah, Allah who I should one no Mohammad Rasool Allah, Allah Houma Jaime Minetta web in which I didn't even Matata hearing. May Allah make us of those who returned to Allah and those who are cleansed before Allah on account of our will do on sada Akula.

Sunday

00:17:03--> 00:17:10

Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah salAllahu alayhi wa Salam wa bad

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

Milan Radi Allahu Anhu

00:17:16--> 00:17:38

is a beautiful example in our history as Muslims milawa The Allahu Anhu is one of the first people to accept Islam, in Mecca. And when he became a Muslim, some of the rich people of Mecca began to abuse him because they had power of ownership over him.

00:17:39--> 00:17:44

And they used to hurl stones at him. They use to hurt him and

00:17:45--> 00:17:51

hurt his body in different ways trying to make him leave off faith.

00:17:52--> 00:17:58

One day, the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam many years later,

00:17:59--> 00:18:52

he had a dream, and the dreams of the prophets of God, of the MVR of Allah and the messengers of Allah are all of them truth and reality. So when we say the Prophet saw a vision, he didn't see something that's not real. He said, Yeah, believe what he took. I saw you last night. It's as if I saw you in real life. But I saw your future that you were walking a few feet ahead of me in Jana. I didn't see you when I can. I heard your footsteps. Bilal what the Allahu Anhu because he was abused. They had broken his bones and other parts. He used to walk with a gait or a limb. So he used to shuffle as he was walking. So even though you might not see Bilal, if he was walking downstairs in

00:18:52--> 00:19:18

our masala and you heard his footstep, you can recognize that that pattern of sound how his feet shuffled. That's the sound of Beloved. So the prophets I seldom said, Oh, you were a heading Jana. I couldn't see you, but I could hear your footsteps in it. Beloved, what do you do? That has given you such a place in your future that you will be so far ahead in Jannah?

00:19:19--> 00:19:57

Beloved, the Allahu Anhu doesn't say on Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam. I'm the first one to make a van in Mecca. On the Kaaba. He doesn't say a messenger of Allah. I'm your advocate and Medina. I'm the one who wakes you up for every pleasure to prayer. He doesn't say I was hurt and tortured on account of accepting Islam. He doesn't say that there isn't a battle that was fought except they stood next to you. He doesn't say any of that. The only thing beloved thinks thinks that it's so significant, so powerful that it can give him a place in Jannah

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

is he says oh,

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

messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:20:04--> 00:20:14

Whenever I break my will do, I hurry to make a new one? And if I'm able to pray to raka I do so.

00:20:15--> 00:20:16

That's it.

00:20:17--> 00:20:47

billon The Prophet said, for here. This is probably the reason. It's not that I make a van for you every prayer or messenger of Allah. It's not that I'm your companion. I'm the one who was hurt in your way. It's that simply a messenger of Allah, I've made my life one of purity. Why is that so important? Because the prophets I seldom said Al will do in one of them. aerations it is an action that is Kasara it is a removal of your sins.

00:20:50--> 00:21:40

My dear young brother, young sister, take your will do serious. Take your hope in Allah serious. Do the little things that are regular in our day to day life, hoping for Allah to protect us and to cleanse us and to assist us. And I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah grant to the higher and the love of Him and the chakra, the recognition of his prophets, I sell them on the Day of Judgment in that darkness, that we may enter into the light in the Mercy of Allah may Allah subhana wa Taala protect you and guide you and lead you and assist you. May Allah subhana wa Allah protect our staff and our students, our parents and our teachers. May Allah subhanho wa Taala lead our principal and

00:21:40--> 00:22:10

in our administrators to that which is pleasing to Him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala send these choices and complete His blessings of peace upon our NABI Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Allahu wa mela Iike who you saw Luna and then maybe, yeah, are you Halloween?
