00:02:26--> 00:03:18

hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah who raised the heavens and created the creation He spread for the earth and beautified it with vegetation and he gave us the cycle of the night and day in perfect harmony and alternation. He sent down to us the Quran as the divine book and Revelation and made us the owner of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the one who shall occupied the praiseworthy station. Allah subhana wa Taala reminds us in the Quran to have Taqwa of him when he says yeah, you Hello Athena. Top Allahu Akbar 241 Our tomato Nila one two Muslim one. Do you Muslims? In the first verse of Surah Alma Ada, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala gives us comprehensive advice. And one phrase in

00:03:18--> 00:04:15

that verse shall be the summary of my hotbar Allah says what to our know I'll be river Taqwa wala to our know underneath me, what would one come together and cooperate together upon all matters of piety, and all matters of goods that are pleasing to Allah, and do not come together and cooperate in matters that are evil or in matters that are transgressive. So in this verse, Allah subhana wa Tada reminds us, that as a part of our own love, we cannot be individualistic, we cannot be solitary, we cannot be selfish. We must come together with other people for bigger causes. We must cooperate in order to do something of substance, one of the greatest sociologists of the OMA, in

00:04:15--> 00:04:59

fact the founder of sociology, our own Ibn Khaldoun, Ibn Khaldoun. He mentioned in his mocha Dima, that mankind by nature are social creatures, that mankind by necessity, they must live in groups and communities. They cannot live by themselves alone in the valleys. We are social creatures. And what that means is that we cannot live on individual level no individuals marry and they form families. Families come together form neighborhoods, neighborhoods come together form subsections subsections come together form villages and towns and countries and nations and almost an entire civilizations and

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

At each one of these levels, there must be cooperation in order for that particular element to function. At every level, people need to come together, they need to put aside their differences, and easy to work for a common good. And our Shetty tells us our religion tells us that as a part of being Muslim, we need to have higher causes. We need to volunteer and spend time and be a part of a process that is beyond just me myself. And I want to I want to either be rewarded taqwa, come together and cooperate in a manner that is good for things that are good. And we see this in any society and in any corporation. And in any movement. You cannot have a corporation that is

00:05:49--> 00:06:36

successful, you cannot have a charity group, you cannot have a masjid or a community, except that people have come together for a greater cause. So the hook but today is a reminder, do not be isolationist. We all have causes that we can volunteer for. We all have projects that we have a passion to do. And our Shetty says, find a project, find a passion, find something that is useful, that is praiseworthy, that is pleasing to Allah, and then come together and work for a greater good because dear Muslims, when we come together and establish something, then truly we are bigger than the sum of our individual parts. Think about that. When a group of people come together what they

00:06:36--> 00:07:23

can accomplish is something far more than what one person alone could accomplish. Look at this beautiful Masjid of ours could we have it as a functioning masjid, without the group support of so many people with so many different talents, look at any project, any charity, any NGO, any corporation, there must be a cooperation of talent and of minds and of hard work and dedication. And each person has a role to play each person brings to the pool what he or she has, and then put together amazing things can happen. And so as we as well, in our religious lives, we need to understand Allah subhanho wa Taala is commanding us to be a part of the larger picture. Now what are

00:07:23--> 00:08:08

some of the things that we can do? How can we be a part of the larger picture in today's code bow I mentioned three or four points in sha Allah Allah the first two of them you all know because we recite this surah every single day while also in in Santa Fe also in livina Armano and middle saleha This is myself me myself and I those who believe and do good deeds you must have that as well. But then what's the next part? What's a wall so Bill healthy what a wall so the server what does the wall see mean? To a wall see means they help one another to wall see means they cooperate to awasi is not selfishness to wa see you get involved in other people's businesses and affairs in a good

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

manner how what a while so Bill hack, this is one of the ways that we cooperate together as a society, we advise to what is good, we encourage people to that which is the truth if we see an evil even if we cannot correct it with our hands with our tongue and the least is in our heart we don't like it. We advise one another to be better put together we strengthen one another What's also been out we preach the truth we preach Islam we preach morality we preach all of the good manners of Islam and then what a while so this suburb we remind one another that indeed Patience is a part of life we remind one another of the difficult times and that coming together we give words of

00:08:50--> 00:09:30

encouragement times are difficult to while sub the sub you give a good word inshallah brother we're going to make it through this inshallah be patient Allah is going to help us words of encouragement when somebody is down words of encouragement when somebody is depressed, family and friends come together with a wall sober, sober, you give words that are going to give somebody to the person individually once society gives you tough problems, you're all alone, it might lead to depression, it might lead to very dangerous things. When community comes in, family comes in friends come in once a while so the server they see the problem and they try to solve it by coming together as they

00:09:30--> 00:10:00

say in English, having a shoulder to cry on it makes the pain easier to bear. This is what our religion is telling us we see a problem we see a sadness we see a grief we step up to the plate and we offer our shoulder to also have a Sabra Come we will do in this together we're going to be patient and Allah is going to help us so these are two things that the Quran mentions, number one to also be always preaching the truth number two to also the sub helping at times of difficulty and this leads to the third point which

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

is based upon this as well and that is as our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, manifests and movement and Kuba Tam and Corbett. duniya whoever helps his brother solve any of the problems of this world, Allah azza wa jal will help solve a problem of his in the ark era. Beautiful Hadith brothers and sisters, whoever eliminates a grief a worry of any brother of his in this dunya. Allah will eliminate his grief on the Day of Judgment. Don't you want to have no grief on the Day of Judgment? Don't you want to be stress free on the Day of Judgment? This hadith tells us find a brother or sister in stress and make sure they're out of that stress, financial issues time, a

00:10:46--> 00:11:29

comforting word, a shoulder to cry on any help that you can give to a brother, a neighbor, a friend, a family member, you give that help. Whoever eliminates a problem from his Muslim brother Allah will eliminate his problems on the Day of Judgment. In another Hadith our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever makes his brother happy, Allah will make him happy on the Day of Judgment. You want to be happy on the Day of Judgment, find somebody sad and cheer him up. He's in a difficult situation. You can do something find somebody who is in need of some help and you're able to help and help doesn't have to be only financial help can be a cheerful spirit. A positive attitude, a

00:11:29--> 00:12:13

phone call, wander down help can be just doing something small or trivial. They don't have a car help them go do their groceries in your car, something small but you enter happiness into their life. This is cooperation. This is coming together. What to our no Albury we're Taqwa whoever makes his brother happy. Allah will make him happy on the day of judgment, and that's why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the best of all of mankind are those that are the most beneficial to the rest of mankind. Jairo Nasi and Pharaoh homeliness, the best of mankind are those who help others amongst mankind, be helpful, be cheerful, do whatever you can, at the individual level, at

00:12:13--> 00:12:52

the neighborhood level, at the family and friends level at the community level. And if you're able to at the city and state and nation level as well do something useful and Allah azza wa jal will bless you in this world and in the next, there are so many incidents from the Sierra, so many beautiful stories of the Muslims coming together and accomplishing so much you cannot accomplish even a fraction of what needs to be done. If you are alone. You must have a community, a group of people, you must have like minded individuals that have a specific goal in mind, and they come together to do that goal. In the famous incident of the Battle of the hunter, the Battle of the

00:12:52--> 00:13:33

Trench, all of the Sahaba had to come together to build that trench in two weeks, so much so even the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he jumped into the trench himself, and he pulled it up his cloth, his bottom cloth, he folded it up, and he started digging himself along with the rest of the sahaba. That's what you call teamwork. Everybody was doing it and the incident of Tabuk when they ran out of food, some people had no food to eat. Do you know what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Let everybody bring whatever little that they have, share, cooperate. So one person bought one date, another person bought just the date seat, another person bought a little bit of

00:13:33--> 00:14:15

milk that they might have had, they put it all together. And then the Prophet says and make dua to Allah. And when they showed community spirit, when they cooperated together, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada blessed that amount and they could eat to their fill. That's what happens when you sacrifice when you give to you to others, Allah will give more back unto you, you will not lose being generous, you will not lose giving something for the sake of Allah, Allah will give you back something much more than this. Therefore dear Muslims look at the situation we are in and see what you can do to cooperate at a larger level. And as I said, there are multiple levels of cooperation don't just

00:14:15--> 00:14:55

suffice with one thing we come together as families that is one cooperation as neighbors we come together that is one cooperation as our Masjid we come together that is one cooperation. But every one of us should have higher purposes beyond these. What do you want to do with your life? Find a like minded group of people. Do you like charity? Do you like knowledge? Do you like building something for the next generation think long term and then find groups of people that have the same vision as you and cooperate together so that insha Allah Allah, your legacy can be much larger than anything you could have done as an individual person. We conclude the first Hadith with the first

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

cookbook with a beautiful reminder that really illustrates this point, our Prophet

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, The believer, like all to all of the other believers are like bricks, they come together and they fortify the wall. And he then put his fingers together like this. Each believer is a brick. And the brick by itself, it might be solid, but it might be weak. But a weak brick, when you put it in a large wall, that weakness is ignored. Nobody cares about that one brick being weak, the weak brick, and all of a sudden, is doing something that it could never do. Even a strong brick by itself could not protect the house, it could not protect against an enemy. But when all of the bricks come together, what happens you build a beautiful structure you

00:15:42--> 00:16:20

protect you fortify you do something much more than what one brick could ever have done. And our prophets of Allah who I sent him said, The believer like to all of the other believers is like this one brick that helps together building in that beautiful wall. We want to build something of substance, we want to go beyond just our middle and our one life that we have. We want to do something much more productive with this. And that can only be done when we come together and cooperate. What are our no eligibility what Taqwa Walter Allen is the winner are owed one may Allah subhana wa Taala bless me and you with and through the Quran. And May He make us of those who is vs.

00:16:20--> 00:16:28

They understand and implement his halal and haram throughout our lifespan. I ask Allah's forgiveness, yours will ask Him for He is the food and the ramen.

00:16:41--> 00:16:51

Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Hilla hadn't had a summit, Allah de la mia Dwolla Mulan, while I'm here, Kula who co founder had, what better do somebody might say,

00:16:53--> 00:17:42

cooperating with people, and being with them exposes me to the worst of society, and to the worst of interaction with others backbiting and backstabbing and slander, and this and that, and if I stay at home, and if I don't get involved in any project, that Alhamdulillah I've saved myself from all of that politics and all of that conflict. And to that person, I say, Pay heed to what our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he said, The believer who mixes with the other believers and his patient at the irritation that they give him is better in the eyes of Allah than the believer who cuts off from the other believers and does not interact and does not have to be patient

00:17:42--> 00:18:24

at their irritations. The believer who interacts with other believers and his patient at what they give on to him and movement and whether you hold it on us why hospital Allah home, that believer is better in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala than the one who is cut off and doing nothing. When you are alone, dear brothers and sisters, when you are solitary, doing nothing, how little can you accomplish in order to accomplish you need to cooperate when you cooperate? It has some negatives, there's no doubt you deal with people have rude tempers, you deal with people who are obnoxious, you deal with people who will slander that is a part of the parcel. It's a part of the package deal.

00:18:24--> 00:19:11

It's a part of the program. You cannot do something of magnificence all by your own and our religion teaches us come together, cooperate and do something and if it means you have to interact with some people you don't like so be it, put your egos aside, put your egos aside and come together for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala remember, dear believers remember what our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he said he had Allah He either GEMA Allah's hand, Allah's mercy, Allah's blessings is on the group, the community of Muslims, and whoever breaks away, is breaking away towards the fire of hell. Allah's hand is over the group, we want to be a part of the group, we want to be a

00:19:11--> 00:19:52

part of that society are a part of that community, a part of that organization, even if it means there's going to be some negatives. So be it. It is through those negatives, it is by interacting with others, that we can truly accomplish something that will be our legacies in this world and in the next dear Muslims. Each one of us should think about what our passions are and should think about how we can contribute and especially during this COVID crisis, how much is there to contribute? How many brothers and sisters are in trouble in grief? How many have financial issues how many need a word of encouragement, how much charity work needs to be done? We all have something

00:19:52--> 00:20:00

to give something to give. Let us come together so that we can help the more unfortunate amongst us so that insha Allah

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

Bucha Allah, Allah will bless us with more in this world and more in the next remember dear Muslims, whoever makes his Muslim brother happy Allah will make him happy on the day of judgment we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to be happy on that day Allahumma in need the Amino Allahu Allah that they don't need them but he loves the Fatah.
