hamdulillah Alhamdulillah we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala for having created us and for having guided us and for having sent to us His holy book and for having sent to us his best messenger. We thank Allah for the blessings we recognize and the blessings we do not recognize. We thank Allah for the blessings we are aware of the proceedings once we are not aware of. We thank Allah for having guided us to Islam, for we would not be guided to Islam had he not guided us and we ask Allah to send his Salatin his Salaam, upon the most perfect human being and the most supposed to blessing messenger to ever walk on the face of this earth. Dear Muslims, know that Allah Subhana Allah has
commanded you to be conscious of him when he says in the Quran Yeah, you Hello Xena Amano. Aloha.
Cultural culture, while Archer Mouton, Illa, one two Muslim moon.
We are all aware in the hadith of God, that jabril came to our Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and asked him, What is Islam? And then what is a man? And then he asked him what is a son. And so the concept of a sun is fundamental to our understanding of what it means to worship a law. And the sun is the highest level that all of us should strive for. Once we know that Exxon is the highest level, we should strive to be amongst them were seen in when we realize that Allah has divided the Muslims into Muslim and more men and what you're seeing, How can any of us be satisfied to be in the lowest, we should at least aim? We should at least desire, we should at least try and then leave the rest to
Allah. At least have the goal that I want to be of the mercy in in and in order for us to have that goal. And to understand today's brief, whatever is about the concept of a son. And what does it mean to be of the mercy Nene? No, may Allah have mercy on you and me that Allah has praised the mercy Nene like he has praised no other category in the Quran. In over half a dozen verses. Allah says, voila, who you have been worse in, in, in the law how you have been worse in in Allah loves those who practice Yes. And Allah subhana wa tada says, Linda, Dina is an O l husana. Was Jada. Those who practice Yes, and they will get my agenda and they will get more than my agenda. And more than the
agenda is to look upon the face of a law. So those who practice yes and we'll get to gaze upon the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala How could we not ever desire to be in that category? Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran, in Rahim, Allah Hikari bone mineral myrcene in the mercy of Allah is always close to those who are of the mercy Nene. Allah subhana wa tada mentioned in the Quran YG Allah Dena.
Allah is going to reward those who practice a son with the best of all rewards. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in the law have more sin, Allah is a little more sin, your hip bullets and and in another Hadith, Allah azza wa jal has ordained his son in all that we do. So of the names of Allah is a sin. The concept of a son is so beloved to Allah, that he named himself sin. He is the one who practices Yes. And he has perfected his son, and he loves the people of your son, and he shows mercy on the people of your son, and he has decreed a son in all that we do. In the famous Hadith that I just quoted. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a law has decreed
his son in all that you do, whatever you do, try to do it with your son, whatever you do, even if it is a worldly matter, even if it is something that is mundane, so much so that this headed says, even when you're going to sacrifice an animal to get some meat, you want to have a meat you want to sacrifice an animal our prophets of Salaam said Allah is more sin, and he has decreed, yes. And so when you sacrifice the animal, sharpen your blade, don't sacrifice the animal in front of another, soften the blow make it hasty feed some water before you sacrifice and be merciful to the animal. This Hadith demonstrates Yes, and applies even to animals as you're about to sacrifice them. What do
you think of your son amongst living people? What do you think of your son amongst your relatives? What do you think of this and with your parents? And that is why Allah says that Allah has written a son for your parents. Yes, son is the default when you deal with anyone you try to be of the mercy Nene. And Allah will then Bless you. Now what is a sun and how do we attain a sun?
Sun means excellence. A sun means you go the extra mile, one of the classical commentators of the Quran and one of the earliest scholars of Arabic language or raga. But as for honey, he wrote one of the first dictionaries is called mu for data or on he defined if sun that you do more than what
required, and you expect less than what is do unto you. You give somebody more than they're happy and you are satisfied if they give you less than your house, this is how he defined his son to go beyond and above the call of duty to do more than what is required and to be satisfied with less from others around you. And your son is of many categories. We will mention three of them in this code, but but there are many more. Number one, yes and in your acts of worship, when you are of the mercy Nene, you will never be satisfied with the minimum. You will not just pray the five for prayers, you will pray the sooner and the Nuffield and the tahajjud you will pray salata Guha, you
will pray extra prayers throughout the day and night. Yes, means you will not just fast Ramadan, you will fast more than Ramadan a few days every month, maybe Monday, maybe Thursday. Yeah son means you will give more than just your zeca you will give charity daily and regularly. So the first category of ersan yes and in your rituals with Allah subhana wa tada The second category of your son, his son in your dealings with other people. And we already defined what urahara Swanee said you give them more than what is due and you expect less than what is do unto you. You always have the upper hand you always are the more generous the more forgiving the more kind. This is a son. You do more than
what is required. And you're happy at less coming your way expecting a lot to reward you for your son. This is the second category yes and with the flu caught with the people around you and Allah subhana wa tada mentions that he has asked us to be axon to practice in San Juan de Dane to those that are our parents were the quarterback while the uttama while Mr. Keeney while Jerry the quarterback. Well, Jerry Judy was saw a bill Giambi weapon It's been eight categories are mentioned. And Allah says he asks us to do if son in all of them. Yes. And to your parents. Yes. And to your family. Yes, and to your relatives, epsilon to orphans, xand, to your neighbors, yes, and to those
that are traveling with you. And I said to those around you, every single category of humanity is included in this verse, anybody you interact with practice exam with them. The third and last category that we will mention and there are more than this called by can have time for and the highest category of your son, this is the pinnacle of your son, it is the crux of your son. If you reach this level, the rest will follow. It is the sun that is defined by our Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when God and asked him that what is Santiago pseudo law? So the best Angel as the best Prophet, in the best Masjid, surrounded by the best Sahaba he asked him the best question, what is
your son and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam defined it as a consciousness, a mental state and awareness of the culture and taboo de la haka, Nakata for inlanta contura. In New York, yes and you are conscious that you are worshipping Allah, as if you are looking at a loss of Hannah Watada directly. Imagine if you could see a lot and you are worshipping Allah, how would your sila be? How would you as a cabbie, how would your song be? How would your routine of the day and night to be then our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, even if you do not see him is the same thing he is seeing you. That is the level of sun, constant consciousness and awareness of a lot dear Muslims,
even if we don't attain it, son, every one of us should aim to be of the moistening. Even if we don't get there, it should be in our hearts. I want to be of the more stunning otherwise, what is going to happen? Sort of the Zoomer tells us Don't be like those who when they see the angel of death, they call out to Allah. Lo anelli keratin akuna Minal, merci Nene, give me one more chance of Allah and I shall be of the merci Nein. When the person sees the angel of death, they have one request, one more chance. So a lot let me go back and I promise you, I will be of the mercy Nene. We are not seeing the Angel of Death right now. Let us aim to be of them worse than before the Angel of
Death comes and it is too late to aim for that. May Allah bless me and you within through the Quran and may make us of those who it's versus they understand and implement.

hamdulillah Anwar had a had a summit Aladdin Amira what a mule at Waimea Kula Hakuna Eduardo, one of the Sahaba said, the most optimistic verse in the whole Koran. The verse that inspires me the most to be a good person. The verse that gives me the most hope are Jaya Nikita Bella, it gives me the most hope is Sunita Rahman held jezza sunny in a sun, one of our scholars of the past that have their own he recited this verse, and he began to cry, cry cry, they said, Why are you crying? He said, Allah has promised us more tools as humans, if we try to have imperfect ifs and Allah will respond with his perfect JSON. If we try to be of the more sinning, we can never be of actual people
have a son, we can never get to that level. But Allah is saying if you try and you strive, and you do your minimal, limited human yes and Allah will respond with what by showing you his son, and can the created sn equal the uncreated sn, can the son of a mortal equal the son of the hardest, can the son of a human being ever equal the son of horrible,
but we can obtain the son of a law as manaan, algebra?
Calm, we can attain that son, if we strive in our own limited ways to practice our son and our own daily lives. So dear Muslims, aim not just to be Muslim, not just to be more men, aim for a son. Aim for the highest, do whatever you can, wherever you are with as little as you have, do it. Practice yes on with yourselves with your families, with your parents in your worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and perhaps just perhaps Allah subhanho wa Taala will see that Nia and we'll see your attempt to be more sunny and reply to your limited son with his infinite Epson.
