The one died from COVID related he was the architect of the very structure that we are standing in right now. He was the one who designed epic many years he was, you know, dedicated volunteer for designing our community center for our masjid. And he also designed other massages in the Texas area. And his death was actually followed by preceded by excuse me the death of his own wife a week and a half ago. So both husband and wife they passed away from COVID during this timeframe, so we ask Allah for the forgiveness of brother move the one and his wife as well. We also have our dear brother and roasted salaried Sharif, who used to teach Quran after fajr a few remember a few months

00:00:41--> 00:01:18

last year, and he was somebody who would be very active in our community. He returned to Jordan and he passed away as well this week so we ask Allah azza wa jal to forgive him and to grant him for those for all that he has done. And we also have sister Alia are one of our community members her mother is sick and so in an ICU and she was requesting dua for her as well and as we make all of these announcements I keep on telling myself and all the view that if we're not going to learn a lesson then what are we going to learn a lesson when death is around us and sickness and disease we're surrounded by this is the time to take advantage of our own lives for as long as we have it

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

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

Oh all right

00:05:13--> 00:05:15

oh

00:05:27--> 00:06:17

hamdulillah All praise is due to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah 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 alternation. He sent down to us the Quran as his speech and revelation. And he sent to us a prophet in whose belief is our salvation. So it is Allah and Allah alone we worship unto him, we bow our heads and prostration as to what follows ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has reminded us to be conscious of him when he says in the Quran, yeah, you hola Dina. I'm an otaku Allahu Akbar to quality. What are temotu Illa one two Muslim moon. Dear Muslims in surah Taha, verse 123, Allah

00:06:17--> 00:07:09

subhanho wa Taala tells us that when our father Adam, and our mother Hawa were sent down to this earth, Allah left them with one message. This is the last message that Allah gave when they were up in the heavens. And Allah says, Allah hipbelt Amin had Jimmy and battledome they battled and I do for him. Tn ko mini houden feminin Tebrau Houda further your little Lulu Yash or woman or Otto and decree for in Allahumma Isha town banca we're not sure who Jamelia Matsuyama Allah said to them go down to this earth you and Iblees will be enemies together. You will never you should never be friends together. And then Allah says, Any time a message comes to you for me yet Dianna Kamini Huda

00:07:09--> 00:08:04

guidance will come, messengers will come book shall be revealed. Tell your children this Oh, Adam, oh children of Adam. Any time a messenger comes with a guidance, then no one simple rule. This is the rule that Allah sent to our father Adam, when he sent him down to this earth. whoever follows My Guidance shall never go astray, nor shall he ever faced destruction. And whoever turns away from my guidance, shall live a miserable life, and shall be resurrected on the Day of Judgment blind. This is the rule that Allah gave to the very first human beings as they came down to this earth. It is a rule that every prophet preached, it is a rule that own prophet Sallallahu either he was seldom

00:08:04--> 00:08:53

commanded, and it is a rule whose reality we taste in our own existence. Whoever follows Allah's hedaya shall never go astray, nor shall they face destruction, and by destruction here, Shirakawa it is the ultimate destruction of the punishment of L. Whoever follows Allah's guidance, whoever follows the Houda they shall not go Dolan. What does that mean? What was the Cabal and for hada we found you not knowing anything, and we told you how to worship Allah, the Real misguidance is to not know why we are here to not have a purpose in life to have empty lives. So Allah says, When you follow my hedaya, you shall be rightly guided, you shall know why you are here you will have a noble

00:08:53--> 00:09:44

purpose of existence, and also you will be saved in the hereafter. But if we turn away from that hedaya What is going to happen? That person shall live a miserable life, my Isha Tonka, and the word bunk actually means narrow, constrained, restricted. Whoever turns away from my guidance shall live a narrow life. What does that mean a narrower life. You see, even in English, we say, I'm feeling something I have a pressure in my chest, something's wrong. Even in English, we say Oh, I can breathe easy. The same expressions and metaphors are in Arabic, miserable life, narrow life, constricted life what it means you will never taste the pleasure of this world. My Isha Tang Blanca.

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

And in the Hereafter, you will face what you will have to face. You might have the outer illusions of wealth and of blessings. But internally, your heart will be constricted internally your soul will feel not

00:10:00--> 00:10:51

At peace and at ease for India Lahoma Aisha tam Blanca. And this is an amazing facet of existence that most Muslims do not fully comprehend. Many of us, we believe, if I choose the religion, and if I choose religiosity, I must sacrifice this world and I will gain the next world. And that is completely false. If we choose Allah, we gain this world and the next world. And if we reject Allah, we lose this world and the next world. This is what this principle is teaching us. This is what the first rule that Allah gave our father Adam is teaching us, whoever follows the hedaya in this world, you will be rightly guided, and in the next world, you shall be saved, and whoever turns away from

00:10:51--> 00:11:43

my hedaya In this world, you shall never be happy, and in the next world, you shall be punished. This is the simple rule that to be honest, we don't even need the Quran to teach it to us, because our existence and our experience teaches us this reality, when we have religion. When we have emaan. When we have Taqwa life becomes much as bearable, but worth living. We can undertake any mission, we can bear any pain, because we have a connection with Allah subhanho wa taala. The difficulties of this world become easy for us. But when we don't have religion, and we don't have Iman, and we don't have taqwa, then all of the pleasures of this world become meaningless and empty. We can have a full

00:11:43--> 00:12:26

bank account. If we don't have Iman, our heart is empty. We can have all this world has to offer. But if we don't have religion, there is an emptiness in the soul that is never going to be satisfied by this world. And that is what Allah is saying, whoever follows My guidance, I will give you this world and the next. But whoever turns away from my guidance, neither shall you get this world nor shall you get the next this My dear brothers and sisters is the simple rule that our father Adam was given, follow the guidance of Allah. And of course the primary guidance is the Quran, read the Quran, learn from the lessons of our Prophet sallallahu idea he was sending them and you shall live

00:12:26--> 00:12:42

good in this world and good in the next world. May Allah bless me and you with him through the Quran. And May He make us of those who is vs. They understand and applies halal and haram throughout our lifespan. I ask Allah's forgiveness, you as well ask him for years though before and the Rockman.

00:12:54--> 00:13:46

We praise Allah, the One and the unique Him do we worship and his aid do we seek, he aids the one in distress and he gives strength to the weak, dear Muslims. In the last few days, we saw signs we saw images that seared in our heads of mobs attacking our own capital. And we saw chaos and mayhem fitting up and facade, the likes of which we were not accustomed to seeing in these lands. Again, much can be said, and I was debating whether to mention this or not. But I feel very strongly about this issue. And so our kuleana Adela, and we will see what this message will do, dear Muslims, as I was scrolling through Facebook, and even listening to what others were saying, I saw some amongst us

00:13:46--> 00:14:31

some who were, in some sense, rebelling, maybe even gloating about this reality that they are seeing. They expressed a sense of happiness, about seeing the chaos and the fitna and the facade. And you know, the fact of the matter, we can understand why certain segments are so angry at the reality of this nation inland. There is no doubt and I have said this numerous times that our country has a dark side, it has an underbelly that we don't like to think about, it has a history of having a lot of negatives as well, how the indigenous people of this land were treated and decimated, how millions of people were brought over from Africa and treated and how their

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

descendants are still being treated. We have plenty to criticize when it comes to foreign foreign invasions, when it comes to foreign policy when it comes to fall asleep when it comes to Guantanamo and the list goes on and on and on. Let this not be assumed that I am exonerating much less defending that dark underbelly but I want to make a point here that might not be popular. I say loudly and clearly.

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

that it is neither healthy nor Islamic, to gloat over a tragedy of this nature. This is not an exoneration of the evil that has happened in the name of and by this country that we live in. No, it is a reminder of who we are not of who others might be. It is a reminder of our religion of our principles. It is a reminder of what we are here to do. We are not here to wreak vengeance, we are not here to have a tit for tat, we have a goal and a purpose. And that goal and that purpose is nittaku Shuhada, than us to be a witness unto mankind. Is it really healthy for us to harbor such negativity about the very land that we live in? Is this the way forward? And I say this at the

00:15:47--> 00:16:30

beginning of this year, because dear Muslims, it is very likely that we're going to see a lot more such things happening if you understand what is going on. In all likelihood, this was not the first nor there's going to be the last. So what is going to be our attitude as this calamity precipitates? Are we going to be in the sidelines cheering? Or are we going to understand that neither is that healthy nor Islamic? In the end of the day, this is our land. These are our peoples, despite all the negativity that is happening. And if we learn anything from the Sierra Wallahi, how can we read the incident of Thor if over and over and over again, since we were children, we were taught the

00:16:30--> 00:17:07

incident of thought if and yet when something like this happens, we turn our backs to the tragedy of life. And we don't learn anything from the lessons of thought if should we want destruction for our people? Or should we want hedaya and grammar? That is the question I'm asking you. It's a very unpopular question. It's a blunt question. It's a wrong question. But it needs to be asked, What is your goal for being here? What is your purpose for having come to this land and benefited from all the benefits? Because in the end of the day, let's be honest here, almost all of us have come and benefited immensely. That's why we are here or our fathers came before us. Is this the Islamic

00:17:07--> 00:17:51

attitude? No doubt, there's much to criticize, no doubt, we're angry about 1,000,001 things. But in the end of the day, what we want is not destruction. We want hedaya We want compassion. We want Allah's blessings to come down. So all I'm asking for in this second part of the hope but all I'm asking for is a reevaluation of our attitudes of our paradigm of our framework. How do we view the people around us? How do we view these incidents taking place? Should we not be at the forefront? Using this as a teaching moment? Yes, Wallahi, we can talk about the hypocrisy and double standards. We all know that if a person in a in a beard and another flag were in the capital, what would

00:17:51--> 00:18:28

happen? We all know if people have a darker skin color, we're doing what they did, what would happen. This is the time to use as a teaching moment. This is the time where we need to display leadership and not hatred, compassion, and not bigotry. This is what we are here for dear Muslims, and will lie and distrust me to find so many amongst us online and what not to have a sense of gloating and happiness about the reality of what is happening. Do we not realize that the destruction of these lands is a destruction of our own family and friends, is the destruction of where we are. A man came to the prophets and the leader of one of the tribes of dos and he said O

00:18:28--> 00:19:11

Messenger of Allah, my tribe has rejected me and my tribe is an evil tribe make dua to Allah to destroy them. The Profit System that made up he raised his hands and the people became happy that he thought they would make dua for the destruction. He said, Oh Allah, guide those to Islam, oh Allah guide the tribe of those to Islam, Oh Allah, guide them to Islam and bring them to Islam and SubhanAllah. Within a few weeks, the tribe of DOS embraced Islam and came to Medina embracing Islam, even though one of its own leaders, one of its own Muslim leaders came to Medina and he said, O Messenger of Allah, My people are evil, My people are bad, make dua to Allah to destroy them. That's

00:19:11--> 00:19:50

what he wanted. Because it's only natural, you feel extra angry. Do you not think we understand I understand Guantanamo is still open. Our blood shouldn't be boiling the foreign invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, of course, we speak out. But that does not mean we want destruction. That does not mean that we pray for the annihilation of very, very people we live amongst, it means that we channel that anger and we temper it with the compassion of our religion with the lessons of our Syrah, and we then become productive members role model people that we demonstrate what is it mean to be Muslim? What is it mean to be leaders of religion in a land where religion is becoming lost?

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

That's what we should use this opportunity for. This is not an exoneration of the past crimes of this line. It is a call for reflection about who we are

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

As a Muslim civilization living in this land and our priorities and our paradigm, let us learn from the Sierra. Indeed what is happening is tragic and there's much to criticize, but our role our goal is not just to destroy it's not to annihilate. Our role is to be role models, to guide people to the beautiful religion, to explain to them why we are here and to tell them about the Message of Our Lord and the life of our prophets. Allah Allahu Allah, he was seldom that should be our paradigm. So let us reflect upon that and use this as a teaching moment. And indeed Allah subhana wa Taala is the one who guides to the straight path Allah who many died for aminu. Allahu Allah that I feel how to
