I am not big about #Fathersday, but I thought let me reflect on being a son and a father today.
MashAllah "All Prise Is Due to Allah" Where has the time gone.
#Dads #sons #threegenerations As we grow older time passes us like the winds throughout seasons. We reflect upon the days our #fathers taught us our first Call to prayer In our ear. We remember when they carried us while climbing up on their shoulders even after 15-hour shift of work; we only understood one word "Play, Play, Play! They were patient with love even when they were thinking of a pillow to rest their heads. They played with us so they wouldn't have to be the reciprocators of our loud #oscars cries! We had them right where we wanted them rolling on the ground like a big child or playing around like #Brucelee VS #KareemAbdulJabbar in #Enterthedragon. We were going to beat or #Hiyah our #fathers and win because we didn't know how to lose yet, like our first football or board #Sorry game. I am the sorry child you are growing up now rules are changing. You have to lose and win some because that is real life, you are not two years old anymore.Once we become Fathers ourselves we see it is not easy to be a parent and it takes lots of patience and love to be a Father. We start to compare apples and oranges and wonder was I really that child that ran circles around my dad, constantly triggering the yelling factor in him?
• Why are you not listening to me ?
• Can't your hear me talking to you?
• I am trying to aid you to grow!
• I am trying to be a role model for you!
• Can't you see I am proud of you! I am just not proud of the disrespectable actions you may be indulging in.

As fathers, we have to learn that each generation children change and we must adapt to learn their strife may be different than our own upbringing.
As children, we can learn from are shortcomings and tell our fathers hey #oldschool I love you and I am learning to understand that being a parent is not easy. Thanks for sticking in there with me pops. I know why you spoil your grandchildren because the torch has been passed down and you no longer have to feel the heat of the seasons of childrearing.
I will hold this torch with honor and with Allah's light; I will be just fine, god willing.

Growth is the ability to see where we have fallen short and what guards we have forgotten and left the door ajar. The
challenge lies in the next steps we take to rebuild the protections around our hearts. Therefore, some of the best moments are the ones when we are fasting from the worldly static, and aim to minimize its impact upon us. We all deal with noise differently ; thus by controlling our thoughts even when we are in the midst of inevitable noises we can monitor what engagements we have with fitnah and corruption .  We seek Allah's aid from the daily test of our Whims, bellies and loins.
For me fasting is my best coping mechanism, to the out side world, I may come off as standoffish. On the contrary its more a whole day of controlling the main senses: instant gratifications, from the eyes, ears, mouth, heart, and mind etc. In other words Being in the World but Not of the World. The goal is to stay committed to Allah The Most High and to focus on building a greater spiritual bond with Him. Allah tells us that our family and daily affairs are a fitnah on us. { (Your wealth and your children are only a Fintah, whereas Allah! With Him is a great reward.) Allah said that the wealth and children are a test and trial from Allah the Exalted for His creatures, so that He knows those who obey Him and those who disobey Him. Allah's statement} Let's reflect upon this powerful verse because at the same time We know that those same trials are the elements we find ourselves inclined towards, the things we love the most in this world. {Beautified for men is the love of things they covet; women, children, much of gold and silver (wealth), branded beautiful horses, cattle and well-tilled land. This is the pleasure of the present world's life; but Allah has the excellent return (Paradise with flowing rivers, etc.) with Him.}
That's why I believe in order to refocus our attention on the essentials we have to halt what drives us. Taking a day or two a week to dismount the horse that is leading us on a unguarded head on coalition with dunyah "Worldly" fever. There is something beautiful about fasting and its not just abstaining from trigger factors there is this sincere connection a servant aims to enrich the love with the Soul Creator, and what makes it such a great experience is the noise in background dies down and you feel the positive energy of the Al-Divine.

May Allah guide a humble servant to what is right.
We all experience short comings and spiritual regression, 
When people become accustomed to our behavior, they can notice when we are adapting for the better or worse.
What is important is that we read the signs right, that even when we want to go against our natural modesty that we recognize when Satan has whispered His deceit into our ears and hearts; We should halt our desires.
That we seek forgiveness from Allah, and get back on track and focus on what is important.
What we do in our spare time and the comfort of our homes we have to heed what we spend countless hours in if not for the betterment of our hearts.   
Arrogance and pride can devour the humble demeanor of a servant and get us lost into self gratification.
May the Most Beautiful and Maintainer of Hearts replenish our hearts with purity and cleans us from Nafs of wasted wordily whims.   
Self evaluation is necessary thus we don't get so comfortable by letting our guard down and letting immorality in.
By staying as a humble servant of Allah, Inshallah we can keep our hearts enriched with the love and remembrance of our Soul Fashioner. Ameen

Mashallah fantastic Masjid, when you enter the Diyanet Centers grounds it feels like you're in a whole different country. This beautiful Center has certainly been the talk of the town this Ramadan. It's a Very welcoming place, so don't forget to bring your neighbors along when you visit. ‪#‎DiyanetCenterofAmerica‬ ‪#‎DCA‬
