Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Today we speak about children attending of the masjid we have

00:00:28--> 00:01:06

let me share my personal experience my past experiences This is that when I was in Turkey and I was in a Masjid and it was time for I think it was a salah and in our Salah there was this young girl she was about six years old with her brother maybe being a bit for there were causing the masjid to go upside down man there was screaming laughing running UI thump thump and you know the moss intercommunion jumper echoes here. So everything's echoing and I'm thinking my salada they are dead. I'm like they're gone man. They're

00:01:07--> 00:01:49

there. They're finished Monday this guy is going to take them down once the salon finishes right so the Salah finishes and so behind Allah right everyone turns around and smiles at these kids. And the the father is just chilling you just sitting in the corner and everyone else is going up to these kids one guy old guys given a lollipop the other old guys given him given them time to comment to go outside getting sweets coming back and giving it to them and they were so let you know taken by the by the cuteness of these children playing in the masjid. Right. Then I see the sign and the masjid which said please Do not shout at our children not at children, our children. If you do not hear

00:01:49--> 00:02:30

children making noise at the back of our Masjid fear for the generations that are to come Subhan Allah right. So they have a concept that children and the masjid is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala whereas in some Masjid unfortunately, you know muchas being mean children being in the Masters like US federal law right they're like this cannot happen Art talde right. They're like masters kid children shouldn't come to the master and one guy will come up with the with a nappy the other guy will come up with you know the they don't have a clue they're distracting people's the brother Brother if you're a bother is that week that you're going to get distracted by some kids

00:02:30--> 00:03:08

crying here then you know me you need to work on yourself rectification and meditation towards Allah subhanho wa Taala right. It's not the kids fault. You can't concentrate is your fault because you haven't learned how to concentrate. Now what we should be doing no masjids like they've done because one master went and two which was in just in a city in between sogard and borsa there was a city and inside that local Masjid massive again, it's huge mustard. And in the back they had this massive play area. So kids were there outside of sonar times, insights A lot of times, kids rather than playing in the streets, we're going to play in the masjid and just play there. This is them,

00:03:08--> 00:03:54

building a link with the house of Allah subhana wa Tada. This is them playing and learning how to play Salah. praying and understanding that every man coming in and out has an obligation to Allah. He's not this children are picking up from actions is very very important that we provide these facilities within our Masjid, even in our Masjid. And in Glasgow here, we have made a small corner in our mustard Where is just dedicated to toys, kitchen area and blocks and all these different types of things. And we literally since we've done that we have at least seven kids coming a day just to play in that corner. Once everybody plays Salah I don't see the issue in it. I rather see

00:03:54--> 00:04:29

that the children's pick up the oven, they pick up sort of Fatiha, they pick up the actions they then they excited to go to the masjid imagine a child been excited to go to the master. This is a very, very big thing for a child. So one should remember is that if a youngster leaves the masjid because of your arrogance, then you're going to have a lot of questioning on the day of judgment because these youngsters are the ones that are going to replace you once you leave this dunya so that stuff that you stand in and say Allahu Akbar and talk to Allah, that same kid playing in the masjid is going to be the one to stand in that stuff and say Allahu Akbar and talk to Allah. Don't

00:04:29--> 00:05:00

let them build the link with the masjid. Let them build the link with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And remember, next time you hear a child crying in the back of the mustard, just remember, this is our future generations Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah that we can hear them in the masjid because when we hear them shouting and dancing and clubs, all we got to do is our home and just say that the worst generation that the Earth has ever seen, and this generation is uncontrollable and this generation is undestructible But brother You are the one

00:05:00--> 00:05:27

Didn't want them in the master because of making too much noise. Now put up with it. Let them be in the masjid let them make noise because they'll stay away from all the battle there. May Allah subhanaw taala give us ability to recognize the importance of our children in the masjid And may Allah Subhana Allah make our future generations able to take forward the message of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam Jakob Allah Hey salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah. He will that again Hey,
