    AllahuAkbar,AllahuAkbar,AllahuAkbar,AllahuAkbarWaLillahilHamd

  • MaasyiralMusliminwazumratalMukmininrahimakumullah,

    ThearrivalofSyawalisareminderthatRamadanhasleftus alongwithallitsblessingsandspecialbenefitssuchasfasting,thenimahofperformingterawihprayersandtheanticipationofthenightofLailatulQadar.Thereisnoguaranteethatwewillbeabletoexperiencealltheseinthecomingyears.

  • Despitethat,weshouldnotmournthepassingofRamadan.Instead,weshouldstrivetocontinuetoenliventhespiritofRamadanbymakingtheactsofworshipthatweperformedinRamadan,ahabitinourdailylives.

  • Forexample,sincewehavefastedthroughouttheentiremonthofRamadan,weshouldstrivetoperformsunnahfastingthroughouttheyear?IfwehavepaidourzakatinRamadan,thenletusstrivetodocharitywheneverweareabletodoso.IfwefilledthenightsofRamadanwithterawihprayers,thenweshouldcontinuetofillournightsoutsideofRamadanwithtahajjudprayers.

  • ThisiswhatitmeansbymakingtheactsofworshipinRamadanasahabitinourlives.SaidatinaAisyahr.a.indescribingthedeedsoftheProphets.a.w.said

    Whichmeans:Verilythedeedsoftheprophets.a.w.werecontinuous(consistent).[HadithreportedbyImamAlBukhari]

  • Belovedjemaah,letusemulateRasulullahs.a.w.byperformingadeedcontinuouslyandconsistently,andmakingitahabitthatisanintegralpartofourdailylives.

    Dearjemaah, Inlinewiththis,weshouldensurethatthevalueswehavelearnedduringRamadancontinuetobeappliedinourdailylivesaswell.

  • ThroughoutthemonthofRamadan,wehavebeenconstantlyremindedoftheimportanceofbuildingafamilythatholdsontoIslamicvaluesandtraditions,afamilythatistrulylovesAllahandHisMessenger;afamilythatpracticesIslambasedontheQuranandtheSunnahofourbelovedProphetMuhammads.a.w;afamilywhoupholdsIslamicvaluessuchasspeakingthetruth,trustworthiness,patienceandsoon.

  • Andsuchafamilywillthusreflectthesevaluesintheirdailylife.ThiswastheRamadanmessagethatwehaveunderstoodandappreciatedtogether.Andwemustcontinueonwiththeseeffortsinordertobuildasuccessfulfamily.

    AllahuAkbar,AllahuAkbar,AllahuAkbar,AllahuAkbarWaLillahilHamd

  • Jemaah, ThroughoutRamadanwehavetriedtobuildtheresilienceofourimanandincreaseourtakwathroughfasting.Aresilientimanshouldmakeusmoreresponsibleandmoreconsciousofwhatishappeningaroundus,especiallythestrugglesfacedbyourbrothersandsistersinotherpartsoftheworld.

  • However,weshouldnotbelieveeveryinformationandreportsthatwereadastherearemanyuntrueclaimsthatarebeingwidelycirculated.

  • Thismorning,asthebeautifulcallofthetakbirechoesthroughthemasjid,ourhomesadornedwithnewcurtainsandvariousdeliciousdishesawaituswhenwecomebackfromourprayers,weshouldbemindfulandconcernedaboutthegrimsituationandhardshipfacedbyourfellowMuslimsintheMiddleEastandmanyotherpartsoftheworldduetowarsandinternalconflicts.

  • Wearesadforthem,wesympathisewiththeirconditions,andweconstantlymakedoathatAllahs.w.t.willpavethewayforthemtobefreefromtheirsufferings.WealsomakedoathatAllahwillhelptheminfindingasolutiontoendtheconflictthathasgoneonformanyyears.AminYaRabbalAlamin.

  • Atthesametime,asaMukmin,wemustbecriticaltowardsthenewsthatweread,listentoandwatch.WithsoundknowledgeandaresilientfaiththatwehavedevelopedinRamadan,weshouldbeabletosievethroughanddifferentiatebetweenreportsthatarereliableandthosethatarenot.WearealsoabletodifferentiatebetweenactionsthatarebasedonQuranandsunnahandthosethatarenot.

  • Itdefinitelyworriesuswhenwereadthenewsandwatchvideosofviolenceandinjusticescommitted.Manyaspectsofwhatweseeinthesevideos,andwhatwereadaboutinthereports,areagainstIslamicteachings,becausetheyarepropagatedbymisinterpretationsoftheteachings;ortheactionsareinsupportofacertainagenda.

  • Thus,thecommandtobejustandnottooppressanyone,evenwhenoneiscaughtinaconflict,isoftenignored.Rasulullahs.a.w.saidinahadithreportedbyAbuDawudwhichmeans:Donotkillanyoldperson,anychildoranywomanandbekind,verilyAllahs.w.t.likesthosewhoarekind.

  • Infactsomeofthebrutalitiesthatwewitnessedarebeingcarriedoutbythosewhomakethecallforjihad;usingIslamtojustifytheiractionsandcallfortheestablishmentofanIslamiccaliphate.TheseclaimshavebeendeterminedtobeagainstIslamicteachingsbyourrenownedscholars,astheyuseittocommitviolenceandatrocitiesamongoneanother,andunjustlythelivesofinnocentpeopleareunjustlyimplicated.

  • AllahuAkbar,AllahuAkbar,AllahuAkbar,AllahuAkbarWaLillahilHamd

    Mybrothersandsistersrahimakumullah. WeshouldalwaysrememberthatIslamisareligionofpeaceandrejects,aswellascondemns,anyviolentactsandkillings.AllahsaysinsurahAlNisaaverse93:

  • Whichmeans:Ifamankillsabelieverintentionally,hisrecompenseisHell,toabidetherein(Forever):AndthewrathandthecurseofAllahareuponhim,andadreadfulpenaltyispreparedforhim.

  • Duetothesevereimplicationsthatwillbefacedbyallpartiesinvolvedinaconflict,IslamhasruledthatnoindividualororganisationisqualifiedtomakethecallforjihadsimplyinthenameofIslamandMuslim.

  • ThisisalsoagainsttheSyara(Islamicteachings)becauseitcanonlybemadebytheleadersthatareacknowledgedbySyara,andtheymustalsoensurethattheyaredoingsobasedonreasonsthatarenotagainsttheSyara.Thus,wemustbeextremelycarefulanddiscerningwhenwereadfatwasandindividualopinionsthatcalluponMuslimstokillandcommitactsofviolencetoothers.

  • Blessedjemaah, Inordertoensurethatourfamilymembersandourselveswillcontinuetoremainontherightpath,itisimportantforustobeequippedwithsoundreligiousknowledge.Wewillnotbegullibleandeasilyswayedbyallsortsofclaimsthatarebeingwidelycirculated.

  • Wewillnotfallforthemanipulatedinterpretationsofthereligioustextsthatthesepeoplearemakingtojustifytheirowndesiresandpersonalgains.RememberthatAllahs.w.t.hasgrantedwisdomtothebelievers.Rasulullahs.a.w.describedthewisdomandconsciousnessofaMukmininahadiththatmeans:Abelieverdoesnotfallintothesameholetwice.[HadithreportedbyImamAlBukhari]

  • AllahuAkbar,AllahuAkbar,AllahuAkbar,AllahuAkbarWaLillahilHamd

    MaasyiralMusliminrahimakumullah, Thesechallenges,andmanyothers,arepartandparcelofthelifeofabeliever.Infact,Ramadanprovidesuswiththegoldenopportunitytoreplenishandrechargeourselvesspiritually,asweprepareourselvestofacelifechallengesfortherestoftheyear.

  • TherewilldefinitelybehurdlesandstrugglesthroughoutourjourneyinachievingourdesiredgoalsofAllahsmercyandHiseternalparadise,andwemustthereforeprepareourselveswelltofacethesechallenges.

  • Anddearjemaah,howcanweprepareourselveswellforthistryingandchallengingjourney?Theansweristobuildonourtakwa.Allahs.w.t.saysinsurahAlBaqarahverse197:

    Whichmeans:Andtakeaprovision(Withyou)forthejourney,butthebestofprovisionsistakwa.SofearMe,oyethatarewise.

  • Assuch,dearjemaah,Ramadanisaveryspecialmonthbecauseitprovidesuswithmanyopportunitiesforustoheightenourtakwa.AndEidulfitriisalsoveryspecialbecauseitisthedaywecelebratethetakwathathasbloomedinourheartsaftergoingthroughtheholymonthofRamadan.

  • Thus,onethathassuccessfullystrengthenedonesimanandincreasedonestakwathroughoutRamadanshouldbechangingintoabetterpersonwhoismoregracious,respectfulandcompassionate.Onewillalsobemoreforgiving,insteadofsimplywaitingforotherstoapologisefirst.Onewillprefertomaintaingoodrelationswithfamilyandfriends,andmaketheefforttoresolveanyissues,insteadofwaitingfortheotherpartytomakethefirstmove.

  • TheProphets.a.w.said:

  • Jemaah,thelessonwecanderivefromthishadithis:Respondingkindlytothosewhohavedonegoodtousisnormal.ButwhattheProphets.a.w.asksofusistorespondtoharshnessevilactswithkindness,hostilitywithpeace,andrudenesswithpoliteness.

  • Thus,letustaketheopportunityofEidtoforgivethemistakesofothers.Forgetabouttheconflictsandfightsthatwehadinthepast.DontwealltrulyhopeforAllahsforgivenessforourownsinsandmistakes?Ifso,weshouldbethefirstonetoseekforgivenessfromothers.AllahsaysinsurahAlNurverse22:

  • Whichmeans:...letthemforgiveandoverlook,doyounotwishthatAllahshouldforgiveyou?ForAllahisOftForgiving,MostMerciful.".
