Today’s khutbah I dedicate for ourselves. Mahasabha/ reflecting, pondering about your own situation because we all know that the betterment of the ummah starts right here. Right here, at yourself in your heart.
We are good criticizing everyone around us. But Honestly, I think we struggle criticizing ourselves. Whereas, we see that the sahaba radi Allahu anhum, they were very very critical with themselves.
The recipe of a shahabi was in that story was that he was reflecting upon his own deeds and his own actions every single night before he went to sleep and his recipe for jannah That he used to forgive every single one of the Muslims who wronged him during that day.
a characteristics of True Believers; they really reflect what they have done during the day during the week, during the month, during the year. So to better them, keep on doing what you found to be good and get rid actively of the things that put you on the path of shaitan.
What have we sacrificed for Allah?
The sake of this Deen of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala, for the sake of not you
We all have fantastic intentions when it comes to what we want to do Fi sabilillah in our life, But acting upon this intentions that’s where we struggled sometimes. how can you justify standing in front of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala and say I worked the decade two, three and I knew it was haram. But I was too comfortable.
Look into the mirror and say what am I doing? Do something.
If Prophet Muhammad Muhammad salallahu alaihe wasalam was to visit you today. What would you do? Would you be proud……
The change in the Ummah starting our houses in and if we can’t reflect upon our own situation, We have no right to criticize anyone else.
Asking Allaah for Taqwa and Purification of the Soul
Allahumma, ‘aati nafsee taqwaaha, wa zakkihaa Anta khairu man zakkaahaa, Anta Waliyyuhaa wa Maulaaha
O Allah, grant my soul taqwa and purify it, You are the Best of those who purify it, You are its Protecting Friend and Guardian/Master.
to have the willingness and their intention to change ourselves But then also recognize that we will not be able to do that fully except if we put our forehead on the ground and say Ya Allah help me.
