Hadera short Hadera ateara ca and WITR all combined, our goal is maximum insha Allah that's what we're striving for one hour with the same protocols you're seeing over here, which is six foot distance and covering of the masks, because it is COVID We're going to have to implement this. We hope you all understand in sha Allah Allah hopefully next year we can do our longer throw weeks and whatnot but for this year, we're going to have to keep it short. So what that means is there's only going to be one tarawih for the entire Masjid downstairs will be for our brothers and upstairs will be for our sisters we are assuming is going to be packed to capacity so please do try to come and
then if you're going to be inshallah staying for the whole hour then come in this area if you cannot spend the whole hour then perhaps go to the gymnasium so you cannot disturb the others when you exit but the same protocols inshallah and the goal being that within one hour the whole beginning to end we'll be done in sha Allah Allah Hafiz Suja is going to be doing a short quick easy shuffle a thought I'll wait maybe half a half a page every Raka and then maybe we're going to try to increase the quantity in the evening sessions later on in sha Allah but not in the beginning of the month. We hope can show that you all understand.
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

hamdulillah all praises you to Allah, the One and the unique, he alone it is when we worship and it is his aid that we seek. He is the Lord of the oppressed, and he hears the dua of the weak brothers and sisters, there is a crisis going on that we are all familiar with. And it is one that perhaps clouds the good experiences we're expecting for in Ramadan. But it is still worthy of our attention. And we need to address it head on. And this is but the first of insha Allah many more lectures and holders and gurus, brothers and sisters, we live in different times, strange times. And the World Health Organization has alerted the global community to the rise of depression and suicide across
the globe, not just in North America, the CDC of our own country has mentioned that in the last 10 years, suicide rates amongst those from 15 to 25 have increased an astronomical 65%. In the last 10 years, suicide rates in this age group have skyrocketed 15 to 25 years old, they have gone up 65%. Now psychiatrists and researchers are trying to figure out why. And we have the right to have our opinions. And perhaps there's no doubt that this over materialization and this narcissism and this hedonism and the social media and the breakdown of families and friendships and the breakdown of religion, perhaps we can all pontificate. And perhaps we're all right. But you know, brothers and
sisters, it doesn't change the fact that suicide is on the rise. It doesn't change the fact no matter what your opinions are about why it's happening, it is happening, no matter how irritated or how callous you feel, it doesn't change the fact that this is a phenomenon that needs to be addressed. And you know, I will be the first to say, I grew up in the 80s. Born in the 70s. I don't understand why this generation seems to have everything that I could have only dreamed about. I don't understand why. But the fact that I don't understand does not change the reality that it is actually happening. And unless and until we snap out of our arrogance of not understanding and began
to empathize. This is one of the problems that are speaking to the adults now to the parents in the audience. I am a parent too. I do not understand why this is happening. It totally baffles me when this generation seems to have everything and yet still there is an emptiness and of course I have my opinions. But in the end of the day, those opinions are not going to solve the problem instantaneously. We need to deal with the reality and unfortunately, mental health and struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts. It is something that we consider taboo to even discuss. We don't even bring it up in our lectures. If one of us is suffering from mental depression or illness.
We think it's something to be ashamed about. We don't want anybody to know about it. If a child comes to us a teenager comes to us we completely dismiss it away. Oh, man up be a young man I had it worse than you. I had this and that and we don't understand times have changed. I don't understand why. But times have changed and the cycle
The psychological makeup of this generation has changed. Dear Muslims, dear parents, we're all aware of painful events that are taking place in our own communities, we cannot be blind to the reality of what is going on. I encourage all of you to reorient your frame of mind from being cynical to becoming sympathetic from being dismissive to becoming empathetic. Understand that this is a new generation with new trials. And tribulations understand that the goal is not to be nasty and mean, the goal is to save lives and to save emaan. And in order to do that, we have to begin with ourselves, we have to acknowledge there is a problem in so many communities, there is no question
our own is one of them, that depression, that bad thoughts, suicidal thoughts are on the rise. And these young men and women don't even know where to go to. Because if they come to me, or you generally they are dismissed, they're told to shut up and go and Memnon up about it, and what's the big deal, and you have everything and I had it worse than et cetera, et cetera. And that's not going to solve the problem. So everything begins with a reorientation of our own paradigm, understand there's a problem understand, it's a new problem, a new phenomenon. Every single psychiatrist is pointing this out. Every single major organization that deals with mental health is telling us that
this is an a phenomenon that has never been observed in human history, the rise of depression in the younger generation, it has never been observed in human history. It's not the fault of our children, that they're born in this generation. It's not their fault. You cannot blame them for something beyond their control. They are a part of the culture and society. So we need to empathize. I am not a psychiatrist. But I will tell you, we need the help of professionals. We need the help of those who understand these issues. If a young man or woman comes to you, and they open up about bad things about depression, about a star for Allah suicide, this is a warning bell for you. Do not dismiss
this cry, do not consider it to be something that is trivial. Immediately get professional help. Most important, dear parents most important, do not dismiss and make that young man and a woman feel bad. Empathize, hug. Love. That is all that is required for a parent. Just love tell the young man and women may be I don't understand what you're going through. But I'm here for you. I'm always going to be here for you just expressed to them that don't ever think about the the option of suicide because suicide and I speak now to the young men and women here as well. Suicide is a drastic, it is a permanent, it is a haram solution to a temporary problem. We don't want to go down
that avenue. We are all here for you, young men and women. And I speak to every single member of our own community on behalf of all of us and the board and especially of the religious clergy, every one of us is here for you, dear sister and brother, if you have an issue, I know that you have an older brother in me and in our Imam and in our show you any one of us is here for you. I swear to you as Allah is my witness, if you come to me struggling with a personal issue of depression or suicide, you have my full attention, I will make time for you come to me, I'm making an announcement right here. If you feel that I can help. And if I need to, I'll put you in touch with anybody that's more
professional. I'm a person of religious background, maybe a little bit of religion will help you but if it's not going to be enough, I'll put you in touch with the experts. But realize we are all here for you. I might not understand your problems, but I do care about you. And I want what is best for you. And I know because Allah says so I know that tomorrow is going to be better than today when an al Qaeda to highroller come in and hula and I know that Allah subhana wa Taala loves you more than I can ever love you. And that's why in the very verse about suicide, what does Allah say Wallah? Takatsu and Fusa come in Allah who can become Rahim. Allah uses the word Rahim in the very verse
about suicide. Allah reminds you who he is. He is Rahman and Rahim This is his characteristic, I might not feel your pain, but Allah azza wa jal knows and realized your brother and sister Allah will never put you in a situation more than what you can bear. Now you can live Allahu nevsun Illa with our dear brother, dear sister, if I don't understand your pain, Allah azza wa jal knows and guess what he puts you in that situation, knowing that you have the courage and the faith and the fortitude to pass that situation. Allah would never put you in a situation knowing that you would fail know the fact that you're facing that situation. The Quran tells us that Allah knows you can
pass with flying colors. You have it in you, you have it in you because Allah has promised that you have enough to pass any tests that he places on you, but you have to show some courage and you have to get help. Don't be ashamed of getting help. We
You're all here for you. If one elder turns you away, don't be don't be a dissatisfied come to others come to me come to other people of our community. We are all one large family. This is the Muslim ummah, we are here for you find faith and find family and find friends and if need then go to therapy. These are the ways that we overcome our daily challenges. Dear Brothers and Sisters, struggling with depression struggling with difficult thoughts. This is a part of life. The solution is not just to take your life No, never never. The solution is never to expedite your own life. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said life is always going to be better for the believer, the
Mortman any time that he has his better because he takes advantage of that time. So do not expedite that which is inevitable. One time will come we all have to leave we leave it to Allah subhana wa Tada. Dear brother, dear sister, Allah is Rahman and Allah is Rahim, Allah is your Creator, turn to him for help first and foremost, and then turn to others who are loving and caring about you and know that Allah subhana wa Taala loves you more than your mother and your father as our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah who met Anita and for aminu alignment I said if you had to meet him, but he loves a photo Well Uh hum Manila for rich the Holiday Inn and Illa Kobita when Mr.
