Wa Harrell, howdy, howdy Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Sharon Ohmori Montesa tohave a coulomb, vida que la vida Chandra, Aquila dolla to infinity to mama bother about Allah,Mighty Brothers and sisters. Ibrahim would tell me one time he said Coloradan and Dhamma talk RadiAllahu Turon a man was in the presence of honorable Hatha Radi Allahu Han. So we heard him makingthis dua he says God Allah Who majali mean of Khalil your Allah make me among those who are few
Oman, colic surprise, what are you talking about? So he called him he goes kala Mahathir later
what's gonna do is that you ask Allah subhanaw taala for so the man he says color in nice me toAllah to Allah good. I heard ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala saying what Kali, you don't mean a bad idea.Sure, cool. And few among my servants are those who are grateful. He says I'll make it my dua thatAllah subhanho wa Taala would make among the few
to that Omar He said, Father Kulu Nasir Allah moment, Omar. He said like Subhanallah everyone knowsbetter than Omar.
Everybody knows better than Omar. And as you can see, when it comes to the Quran, you don't have tobe a Sati or a great Ireland to have a reflection that will impact your life and impact your heartwould make you know exactly your position in this world and this life, this matter of factly onesingle I work on illumine Abadia Shaku and few among my servants are those who are grateful and thishotbar I would like to dedicate to this ayah in particular, so that me and you can understand, weboth can understand all of us can understand the meaning of being grateful.
Now why is that so significant? Why is that so important for us? By the way, this is especially forus and handler, the Muslim community that living in Dallas, I travel
around the country, everywhere I go, people do mashallah they talk a lot about your community. Theykeep saying the Muslims in Dallas, the people in Dallas area mashallah you guys have this you guyshave that and people hamdulillah they can see there's a great Nana there's a great blessing a lot ofhigher and they consider the Muslim community in the tech in Texas in Dallas in particular among thewealthiest and richest communities in the area.
For that reason as your ma we need to be grateful. So they may Allah subhana wa Tada includes youwith Nam era belie lemon and preserve the near Amanda blessed that you already have your anime. Sowhat does it mean? And why is that so important for us? There is another phenomena I also noticed, Igo and I speak in different places also in the area here and in Dallas community and I speak withthe youth, I go to universities, I go to go to college, and I talk with a lot of them. Subhanallahsomething that hurts me whenever I see it is that our younger generation that has grown up andhamdulillah in such prosperity in such great convenience. This generation doesn't see this to be a
great near model blessing. They think it's actually it's the right.
And as a result, my concern is that the next generation of our Muslim Ummah, and the Muslims in thisarea, they might not show that gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala as they should. It's myresponsibility as an imam to deliver the message. It's your responsibility as a parent to deliverthis tool to our children. And it's your responsibility towards one another as a community to makesure that we all understand the meaning of being grateful to Allah subhanho wa taala. Do you evenknow what does it mean to be grateful? Just few weeks back, my wife actually was visiting one of theSyrian refugee camps in Jordan, when they were delivering some of the things that will handler we as
a community in the Dallas area donated to them, such as these mobile homes that they that peoplehandled, donated to protect them from the winter. My wife, she said that these two they've been inthe desert for so long already years, living in makeshift tents. And then when it was time topresent one of these mobile homes to a family. So my wife, she presented this to the lady to go andopen the door first. The lady couldn't even open the door didn't even she didn't even know how toopen the door.
So she turns to my wife, and my wife helped her open the door. She looks at my wife, she goes SubhanAllah, Allah had Tenzin achieved to have love.
We forgot even how those are open.
They be living in tents so long in the desert. They forgot how doors are opened.
Do you even think about it when you're at home?
Something that you do every single day. And you don't even think about it. You just push thedoughnuts open.
Something that completely became for us not even a blessing or a NEMA to consider. Why because it'sit is what it is is there.
We never see the sittings to be done, and blessings. And when it comes to being grateful to Allahazza wa jal, we need to have that deep consciousness of what we have. Not what we don't. Regardlessof how much that we have, this is all great Nam from Allah subhanho wa taala. That's what's gonnamake us grateful to Allah azza wa jal, Allah subhanho wa Taala says we're calling on Mina EvagriusShaku and few among my servants are those who are grateful. You want to be one of them. One of thosefew, it's an effort. It's something we're going to have to aspire to. Why is that because when ALLAHSubhanA wa Taala he praised he didn't praise those who are many in many, many I know he always
praise those who are few about new Hala his salaam of the 950 years Dawa delivered into the old manaward back then know how to Instagram at the end ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala praised those who believedwith him.
And he said about him Subhana wa laqad Wah Ma Ma Ma who Allah Khalid and few believe with MahaliaSinha
and these few people who deserve to be mentioned among the elite. They were saved, they were rescuedbecause of their faith, they believe in Allah subhanho wa taala. And when Allah subhanaw taalaspeaks about those who have the knowledge, what does he say? What I can accept and NAS ly AllahMoon, the majority don't know much.
Which means those who are who have the knowledge, there are few. So what comes to being among thefew, in many cases that was mentioned the Quran, it's a blessing and being grateful. It's anotherblessing in itself. Being grateful that is in itself is another act of blessing that requires fromus to be grateful for ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala says in the Quran, in Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah,Allah subhanho wa Taala has so much further, so much blessing that he bestowed upon the people whatI can accept a nurse NIOSH karoun But the majority of the people they're not grateful
A majority they are not grateful. And Allah subhanaw taala says Yeah, are you Hala Dena amla? KuluManta, you batty Mara Jana too much Kuruvilla all you who believe coolamon Eva tomatoes have notcome eat from the, from the good thing that we have created for you with provided for you. That'swhat ALLAH SubhanA asking for us to enjoy the blessings that he's bestowing upon us. But he sayswatch Quran Allah, Be grateful. Show your gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala for what you have, InKuntum, a Yehuda aboon if you truly are devoted worshipers to Allah subhanho wa taala. If you claimthat you want to be dedicated to his worship, then be grateful when he did when you live the
blessings of Allah Subhan Allah is bestowing upon you. Allah says that Gurunath Coaticook washcruelly, will attack freuen remember me he says Subhana wa Taala and I should remember you can evenimagine that when ALLAH SubhanA wa remembers you what a blessing that is. What a great Nirma thatis. And there's so many opportunities for us to be remembered by Allah subhanho wa Taala
Subhanallah went over human capital the Allah Quran he heard the Messenger of Allah coming to him hesays Carla in Allah, Allah to Allah for the Amarante and Accra like a surah Takada that ALLAHSubhanA has ordered me to recite for you to recite Surah at such and such. Now obey he didn't didn'teven didn't care about what what surah was. He didn't care about that. He said, Carla was a man wholook like Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentioned me by name.
He was so amazed that Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna would mention obey by name to the prophets ofAllah Allah wa sallam. Can you imagine being mentioned by name to Allah azza wa jal
when you're in a halacha gathering, and then the angels will come down with surrounded withtranquility and peace and that gathering will be mentioned in a garden better than this.
To Allah subhanho wa Taala there are so many blessings among them to remember Allah azza wa jal,Allah says, wash cruelly will utter karoun and be grateful to me, and don't be among those who denyme. A coup for him is actually to those who deny Allah subhanho wa taala. So when it comes to beinggrateful to Allah azza wa jal, indeed, it is a great lesson. And by the way, it's also command.Allah orders me and orders you to be grateful to him, Allah to Allah but Allah for about one minuteshattering
that you need to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and you do need to be among those who are gratefulto Allah subhanho wa Taala so being grateful to Allah is absolutely a blessing from Allah subhanawtaala what does it mean to be grateful? And what is it? What do we get out of being grateful toAllah azza wa jal you see when it comes to being grateful to being thankful to Allah subhana waTaala you count your blessings, you count your blessings. You notice the little things that happensin your life and you make a big deal out of them. Why? Because they're great lessons. Remember thelady with the door
for us is completely insignificant matter to her like wow, what a great blessing to have a door youcan close behind you when you come into your house. What a great blessing.
For us, we don't count this used to be blessings from Allah subhanho wa taala. A lot of us we thinkabout what we lack, not what we have.
And that is the problem. We don't appreciate the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is bestowedupon us and what does it mean to be shattered? Or to be Shaku? What does it mean to be grateful toAllah Allah in the Arabic language, the word a shocker is coming actually from an Arab principle hasto do with the horses. You know, the horse is actually when you give it a little hay. And then itbecomes big and strong. That for them, they call it forreston Shaku That horse is Shaco, which meanswith little hay gave you a lot, a lot of power, a lot of energy. And that's exactly the same thingtoo. With Little Blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala you are showing a lot of gratitude. That's
what it means.
So it doesn't matter how much Allah gives you, what matters how much you're grateful you are forwhat Allah has given you. And that's what makes you so cool.
Don't wait for a big thing to happen. So it could be grateful to Allah azza wa jal now be gratefulfor the little things you already have in your hand. That's what needs to be Shaku. Some people thatwait for the big things to happen before the second making dua and making gratitude to Allahsubhanaw taala or even thinking to go for Umrah
why because for them, you know, I need to be grateful to Allah as they wait for that big event intheir lives. So they can go and visit the Haram and Micah and show their gratitude to Allah subhanhowa Taala No, no, you don't have to wait for that moment. Every moment in your life is a moment ofgratitude and being grateful to him subhanho wa Taala you know,
the difference or the most important thing about being shockula and being grateful to Allah Allah isKnowing that Allah subhanho wa Taala he gives this dunya he's given this dunya to everybody.
Allah gives the dunya to the believer and an unbeliever you could see that guys, we go out there andthe
till we see everything, the believer the non believers, the hypocrites, everybody has this, thisblessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala when it comes to being grateful, when it comes to being a truebeliever, Allah only gives it to those whom he loves. subhanho wa taala.
So that in itself is an accurate blessing. The fact that you're able to take a break and come topray Juma in this masjid, that's a blessing. The fact that you're able to come in before everybodyelse probably and find your space in the masjid, that's a blessing. Do you even think about that?Every moment in our life can be a moment of showing gratitude to Allah subhanahu, wata Allah. Andbecause Allah selected among the few who are attending Juma during this very special time of theday, so when it comes to being shackled, someone who's grateful to Allah, Allah requires actuallysome work from us. And the LMR. They mentioned three things that you have to observe in order to
become grateful to Allah. And I want each and every one of us here to think about these things. Howoften do we do that? The first thing they say, call it a tariff, Bananarama, Allah here on robata.Now, the first thing that you have to admit, you have to admit that these are blessings. And toadmit, that means actually, privately and publicly. What does that mean? means in your heart, youare very content. You truly believe this is normal.
You truly believe it. When you come home, and the food on the table is not to expectation, you'rehappy, your content, if it was not your expectation, but it's still your content, becauseAlhamdulillah I still have food on the table. That is from the inside, you have to have it in there.And then you have it out there by saying by talking about by single hamdulillah and show yourgratitude to Allah azza wa jal, once again, from the inside and the outside, a lot of people mightshow their gratitude, you know, in many, many ways, and they said hamdulillah they say ShuckleAllah, Allah, Allah was mentioned the gratitude, ALLAH SubhanA wa Donna, but unfortunately in the
inside, not very happy to have very excited
like many people Subhanallah many times I ask people, you know how you're doing, and said,hamdulillah can be better
as he just negated Alhamdulillah
once you start now negating it, it's over. If you believe it's good, then sell humble and just bequiet about it. But that tells us when we say it, we don't probably mean it. We're not content withit. Are you truly grateful to Allah subhana wa COVID from the inside and also outside? You sograteful to Allah so just blessings and now the second thing that Elena they say that you need toshow your gratitude to Allah azza wa jal is that you speak about it to others, because what AllahSubhan says in the Quran
as for the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala for had this one, maybe no matter how big of 100 so youspeak about the blessings of Allah subhanho wa taala. So you just couldn't make it public. Why isthat it has a lot of things actually, that can help us all. One of it, it's you yourself, wheneveryou want you to continue to speak about the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala that changes you,that makes you be content that makes you actually very excited, very happy about what you have. Alsoin itself, whenever you talk to other people that actually put this like a barrier between you andother people, which means since you're already praising Allah subhanho One of the people about these
blessings, you can't retract that hulless you just say you get out there to the public. And also youreminding other people to be grateful to Allah azza wa jal. Obviously we need to do that moderately,but eventually you need to talk that they have a blessing from Allah subhanahu wata, Anna. And thethird thing, the element they say, Alice, the Anna to be her adult or Atilla if Allah has given youwealth, how you're going to show ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala that you deserve it. That you've beengrateful and good and true and gratitude to Allah subhana wa Taala use it wisely. Use it in a waythat will be pleasing to Him Subhana wa Taala the one who has given this to you.
And when Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you health. Also use it wisely.
Don't let ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala see you lazy when it comes to worshipping Him, and see so excited,so energetic in everything else in this dunya
that's not a show of gratitude as
you show gratitude by using what Allah has given you to please Him subhanho wa Taala when we thankAllah azza wa jal, we thank him, with our eyes, with our hands, we think with our heart and with ourspeech. Now.
What are the things that I can do now to continue being consistent in my showing gratitude to Allahsubhana wa Tada I want to share with you seven things to shout out to Allah. Hopefully we can takeaway from this club in the lives of them number one, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, winter don'tmatter Allah that so that even if you try to numerate a number and count the blessings of Allahsubhana wa
Tada, He bestows upon you, you will not be able to comprehend them all you want. So, number one forme and you is to sit down. And every day just write one of these blessings and how grateful you arefor that blessing. Just do it.
Think about, just sit down one every single day. Before you start your day. Just think about oneblessing. Count that, write it down. Even if it was just saying Alhamdulillah for such and suchAlhamdulillah for helped me waking up today in the morning Alhamdulillah for paying Fajr in theMasjid Al hamdu Alhamdulillah for waking up not feeling sick or whatever, whatever that is. Thinkabout one single blessing every single day. Remind yourself with something that you've been blessedwith. Number two,
if Allah blessed you with something, make sure that you share with other people that blessing bytelling them about that blessing from ALLAH SubhanA wa tan, however,
with moderately what does that exactly mean? Sometimes when we talk about the blessings of Allahazza wa jal, we exaggerate that and we crossed the line, it becomes more of bragging than showingour gratitude.
Be careful with that. Don't go out bragging about what you have. No, you actually go and go and goand show your blessings that Allah had bestowed upon you. So if Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, ifsomeone talks about their children, you should still handle and Allah has blessed our children andyour children. I have my son who did so and so so you always make dua to other people. You alwaysshare it that high with them to number three. If Allah blessed you with anything, go out there anduse it by being generous, generous with your time, generous with your with your love, generous withyour money, generous with your effort. If Allah blessed you with something, go out there and share
It doesn't have to be money, whatever capacity, whatever skill, whatever thing that you have, thatyou can use, so grateful for, go out there and share it with others. You know what you are amongthose who wake up for pleasure all the time. Alhamdulillah make sure to share this lesson withsomeone else wake someone else up prefer to do it and help them with that. Number four.
Whenever you think about Allah subhana blessing upon you, you make sure also to admit the gratitudeand the favor of the people upon you to if someone did something to you, that become a blessing fromALLAH SubhanA wa that Allah made this person available to help you with that. Make sure to begrateful to them to me so Allah Allah wa sallam said in the Hadith, Farmer lash Khurana slashgorilla, if you're not grateful to the people, you will never be good for to Allah subhanho wataala. And you know, who's the first person need to be grateful for all those who are around you,your parents?
are you grateful to your parents? Regardless how hard they want to, you know, on you every now andthen just make dua for them. Call them says Zach Malanga. Thank you. I appreciate everything you'vedone for me, show them gratitude. And then after that comes your spouse,
or you guys showing gratitude to your spouse, regardless how long you've been together in thisrelationship, and how many times you know you went up and down still the blessings of having ahandle as someone with whom you can combine you could be word and unsure, you know, family lifetogether. That's a blessing that needs to be appreciated fully enough. You cannot be grateful enoughor perfectly unless you associate that with another quality. That quality is patience or sub. Whenhudgell Rahim Allah Allah Allah said, Shukria don't want to sub. A sugarcoat requires some you to bepatient. How was that? In terms of prosperity in terms of prosperity, you're grateful for the neon,
I need to be patient from committing the sin. Because when hamdullah when people have chances,chances, you know they're gonna misbehave.
So therefore, you're grateful for what you have. And you're being patient for not crossing the line,because of the prospect and the norm that you have. And you also need to be patient and grateful attimes of trials. When things are difficult, you should patients, but at the same time, you're stillgrateful for what you have or what you've been having all these years before that trial comes yourway. So you always balanced things between being grateful and being being patient. And you showingthat to Allah subhanho wa Taala One last area that would like to recommend for all of us is thatthis is a quality we need to share with our children. Specifically our kids who have grown up in
this society, society mashallah blessed with a lot of prosperity opportunities, hieratic our kidssometimes, you know, they don't even know the struggle the parents they went through to provide whatthey have right now today. So living in this generation living in this time, we're raising kids inmany, many ways, becoming ungrateful to Allah subhanaw taala. And as a result, I'm grateful to theparents. They sense they have that sense of entitlement, for that reason.
coming tonight in sha Allah data after Mega bidding Allah azza wa jal here to the masjid for a for aworkshop about raising children about raising children in an entitled world. How can you haveraising grateful kids in such a world that is all about entitlement? That's a great blessing. I'mgoing to share with you inshallah Tabata, Kota Allah the reasons why our kids are being challengedwith come to showing the gratitude and how we can build in sha Allah Allah to gratitude and right ofpatients for them in the society Bonilla, heeta Baraka Ouattara Allah whom I lived in my in Phantom,when finally my Olympian in that country Rollingwood Hakeem Allahu Martin Fuson at UCLA was actually
