blessings that he has bestowed upon all of us. And there are certain blessings that sometimes we overlook, many people overlook amongst the blessings that Allah Subhana Allah has given to all of us right now, that we overlook, and we do not know the value of such blessings are two blessings that the prophets of Allah mentioned and how do you think Sahih Bukhari he said, he said, Now my time not my boon, see he McAteer, Dominus, I say hi to all for all. There are two blessings, of which most people most of the people are a boon in the Arabic language. When you use the word Marylebone, it means you've been cheated because you don't know the true value of something. methadone and FEMA,
Kathy romanes, say her health and free time health that Allah has given to us a lot of people are among Boone, meaning. Let me give you an example with my boon. So we can understand that much better. If
If a person let's say you have a child,
his parents have just passed away.
And this child has inherited
a lot of money.
He has inherited the house, and the car. So maybe his uncle,
his uncle is taking care of him right now. A person comes to this child, knowing that he has a lot of wealth. He comes to him and says, Listen, son, I got something for you.
I have a bag of ice cream here.
Oh, this ice cream, delicious ice cream. And he knows that he loves ice cream a lot. And he says, Wow, all that ice cream. And you can have all of it too. So you can have all of it. If you can just if you give me that car
that your father had, and it might be a Mercedes or something. There's a Mercedes in his garage where you guys can't get it right.
And he goes, and he says, Wow, you're going to give me the whole bag. says yeah, I'll give you the whole bag. If you gave me those keys over there on the wall. Say says that's fine. Take it here, take the take the bag. I mean, take that Take the keys go and get the keys. They're yours.
Knowing that it's his so he gives it you know, the kid knowing that he's inherited all this says just take it. This kid. He doesn't know the true value of that car, he could care less about that car, he would prefer to have just a toy remote control car than the big car. He doesn't know the value of it. So he's been cheated. This old man has taken advantage of him. Because he doesn't know the true value of that car. He doesn't know that if he sold that car, he could buy every single ice cream bar in the whole city. Plus still have money left over to buy ice cream and then the other time, but he doesn't know that. So that's called that person is called Mike Boone. A lot of us we
have this the time that we have the free time that we have in the health that we have, that we can use to take advantage to do that which is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we don't take advantage of it. Because that helps the health that we have is very valuable. There they say. Say hi to tarjan Allah rossella say Hi Laura who lol Martha indeed health. Health is like a crown health is like a crown on the on the heads of all of those who are healthy, being healthy your health.
Being not being sick. He said being healthy is like a crown or the the Arabs they said there's the saying that they have
is like a crown. Nobody sees that.
Crown unless you're sick, but all the people who are healthy they have this crown upon them. And so this health that Allah Subhana Allah has given to us we have to take advantage of it before it goes away. And it's any blessing that you have any blessing that you have from Allah subhanho wa Taala we have to be thankful. Now how
how should we be thankful to Allah for these blessings, we can be thankful to Allah Subhana for these blessings, by using that health, you know, our, our feet, our hands, our body as long as it's healthy, using it, to do things that are pleasing to Allah. If we are thankful we do all that we can to please Allah instead of using this health or using our hands and limbs to disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala and so this is how we as Muslims, show our appreciation for this great blessing that we have to increase in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala that's why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he used to stand up at nighttime praying, tell his feet were swollen. I
shadow the law,
being compassionate towards the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seeing him in that condition. She said, O Messenger of Allah, Allah has already forgiven all your previous sins and your future sins.
In other words, why Why are you doing this? Why are you standing up to standing up for so long, to the point where your feet are swollen
when Allah has already forgiven you, your sins. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, FLR acuna abdon Shakira, says, shouldn't I be a thankful or grateful servant of Allah, meaning this the blessing that Allah has given to him, made him a prophet and messenger, and has forgiven his sins, all of these blessings, we should, he should be thankful for these blessings by increasing in the worship of Allah by getting by him having this health, the strength and energy, energy that's been given by Allah, to be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala, you have to use this energy and strength and health to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the health that we have,
is worthless. I mean, is is priceless, is priceless. When it comes to material matters.
Because if somebody you know, if somebody had a problem, let's just say, you know, this is something just just an example, somebody had a, a sickness, maybe constipation, or he's not able to go to the bathroom, you feel the urge to urinate, you know how much you know how hard how difficult that is, sometimes you're on the bus, and the bus, you know, it's going to be 20 more minutes before the bus gets to the next stop or next rest area where there is a bathroom, and you need to go but you can't tell the bus to stop just for you. Or you can't tell you can't stop just in the middle of the motorway, for example, and you need to go really bad. You know how bad that feels. Now how difficult
And imagine if you can't go
you know, for most of us, we can go. But imagine this is a sickness that you can't go. And if this is somebody, this person, let's say this person is very rich,
that feeling that he has
and he knows that you're a doctor, and you can get rid of it. But you tell him, listen, I will cure you of this sickness, I'll make you be able to use the bathroom without feeling this pressure. And this pain that you're having right now. If you give me all of your money.
If you give me all your money at that point,
at that moment, even if that person has, you know, a million, he's a millionaire. He has all the money in his bank, you'll say just take everything. Just take everything this just get rid of this pain, get rid of the sickness that I that I have. And
no matter even if he has millions. At that point, every your health is priceless. And so every one of us, every one of us, the blessings of the health that we have the eyes, the the blessing of being able to see being able to hear, being able to feel there are many people who don't even have these blessings. They walk around and they don't see anything at all. And I want you to just test yourself just for a few minutes. If you're just if you would close your eyes. Imagine yourself that
This is how you see the world.
This is how you see the world. There are some people who don't have that.
Who can't see.
They don't hope to see anything. They just hear words. And there are some people who can't hear all of these things a loss of Hannah has given to all of us. And all of these things are priceless. You can't put a price on it. But we don't realize the great blessing that Allah Subhana Allah has given to us until it's taken away
until it's taken away. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If Adam Hansen public homes, take advantage of five things before five.
And one of the things that one of the things that he has told us, he said, was he had to take advantage of your health while you're still healthy, to worship Allah before the sickness comes. Why because when sickness comes, you will want to go and pray in the masjid. You will want to fast but you will not be able to fast, you will want to get up at nighttime, but you're not going to be able to get up at nighttime. You want to sit down to read the Quran, but you're in such pain you cannot do so you will want to memorize the Quran. But you can't because it's hurting so much. You want to do this and you want to do that, but it's too late.
When those times you want to. And that's why but if, believe it or not,
if you were good. If you used to read the Quran all the time. If you used to go to the masjid all the time, if you used to fast on Mondays and Thursdays Do you used to get up at nighttime?
For tahajud when sickness hit befalls upon you when you are sick, let's say you're chronically ill, because sometimes, you know, God forbid, but you can go out anytime. And there are many people who just go out in the morning, they go to work or go to school, and they get to they get in an automatic automobile accident.
And they can they can't move anymore. They're paralyzed for the rest of their lives. I mean, it doesn't matter whether that whether that person's younger if you're a university student, or if you're still in your prime age, accidents and so forth can happen and sickness can be fall upon a person at any time, any moment.
At any time at any moment. Not only
old people get sick, young people also all the time you hear about it all the time. And you do not know the blessing of the health that you have, until a lot takes that away. But if you were used to doing all that, all that you can, even if you're not doing so even if you're not reading the Quran, you're not able to or you're not going to the masjid because you're no longer able to you will still get the same reward. If you used to do that on a regular basis.
You will still get the same reward because the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi salam said in a hadith in Sahih Bukhari he said either murrayville Abdu l sophora kuchibhotla. Who Miss Lama canon? Yeah, Malou keman Saha. He said, when a servant travels, or he is sick, mean when you're traveling or when you're sick? kuchibhotla who mithril Americana? Yeah, man, the reward, his reward is written for him. Meaning whatever he used to do is written down for him
while he's sick, or when he is traveling, even though he's not doing them.
Why? Because if he was at home, or if he wasn't sick, he would be doing these good deeds. And so that's why if you are used to getting up and fasting and praying all the time before you became sick, when you are sick, you will still get the same reward. Because you the only thing that is keeping you from doing those things that you used to do, it's because you're sick or because you're traveling now. And that's why it's not so nice to try to pray. The sooner robotic meaning the forelock as before, those are the two rockers after the hood and the end. And the prayers before and after the Prophet sallallahu sallam. When he traveled, he used to pray. He used to short his
prayers, and he didn't pray the suddenness except with the exception of the two rock as a fighter and the Whittier prayer any of the sudden has that he used to pray before I mean when he was at home, he didn't pray. Because if you prayed it, you know if you whether you prayed it or not, you still get the same reward. Because you used to do that at home anyway. So that reward is coming to you automatically. And Allah subhanho wa Taala once easy easiness for you. He wants ease for you. He wants to make things easy for you. And so if he's shortening to to rock as this is
A concession, a present a gift that Allah Subhana has given to you. So you accept it happily, and you pray two records, and two records or two records for us. And the same way with a shot, you shorten the prayer. And if you need to combine, you're allowed to combine also, this is a gift from Allah, and Allah loves his servant, when he when he gives him a gift, he accepts it. And so that's why it's better for you not to pray those suddenness. Number one, because it's a gift from Allah. Number two, you're going to get the same reward anyways, if you used to do them before, you're still going to get the same rewards, because you used to do them on a regular basis before. And so that's
why you never know when
sickness will come. You never know when maybe next tomorrow or after tomorrow or next month. You don't ask for calamity and affliction you always ask Allah to free you from that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said is Allah afia ask Allah, that you will not be sick, you will not be afflicted with calamity, you will not have any problems. But if you do, if you are afflicted with it, then be patient, then be patient. That's why the prophets of Allah said is Salafi, let it pass pile I do don't hope or wish to meet the enemy. But if you do meet the enemy, then be patient. Well, I can either let me to move on fast. So you don't ask for problems. You don't ask for problems. You don't
say, Man, I wish I lived during the time at the jail, I'll show you know. Now you don't ask that you won't meet any of these trials and tribulations. You don't have any problems at all. And ask Allah subhana wa to free you from that for you from our sicknesses, our trials and tribulations of this life and the hereafter. But if you are if you are afflicted with something, then be patient and be firm can as I mentioned
the blessings that we have, are priceless. You can't put a price on it. And if you are healthy, be thankful for Allah for that health. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will make will give you more will give you more. Because if you're thankful, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will increase it whatever you have. So Allah insha Allah is he did not come if your Allah Subhana Allah says if you are thankful, then I will increase it for you. If you are thankful, then I'll increase free. So that's why in the morning in the mornings when I look in the mirror,
I say I say to myself, I say I bilberry are so handsome. And then I say, Oh Allah, just as you have
just as you have beautified my creation, also beautify my manners also, also beautify my manners. And so when you're thankful, when you're thankful to Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will increase it for you. So, look in the mirror, be thankful that Allah Subhana has made you beautiful, has made you handsome. Look at and be thankful to Allah and Allah will increase it for you. Now I will give you more. And so if you're healthy, be thankful to Allah, and Allah will increase your health. And if you're thankful, in times of ease,
then when the hardship comes, then oh no, you also because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the honor of Allah Allahu Farah ha, yeah, if he said, No Allah in terms of ease, and Allah who know you in times of hardship, meaning be thankful, worship Allah, and make use of your time while you're healthy, while you're strong. Make use of that time and know Allah, and take advantage of that time to do all that which pleases Allah. Then when the time of hardship comes along, we'll know you also.
The Prophet salallahu alayhi salam told us about three people, three people
trapped while they were traveling. And at nighttime, when night fell
upon them, they looked for a place to spend the night. And so they found a cave, to spend the night when they went into the cave, a large boulder rolled down from the hill from the mountain and covered the mouth of the cave.
This was such a large boulder that none of them were able to push it out. They were not able to push. And so they were stuck in the cave. So one of them said, one of them said, Oh Allah.
We said no, we cannot escape, we will not be free from this calamity. Unless we ask Allah with our righteous deeds, I mean the pious deeds that we used to do. And so
this is, this is a time in which
They were not able to push this Boulder, they're stuck, and they have nobody else to turn to. And they know that they will be finished, they will die. unless Allah helps them. Nobody else is there, there's no hope except in Allah subhana wa Tada. And so the first one says, Oh Allah, I used to have parents who were
older in age. And so then when they became older and age, I took care of them. And one day,
I returned home very late, because I was looking for pasture for my flock, for my flock. And so I returned home very late. In our house, nobody ate or drank, or nobody had their supper, before my parents did.
They were no priority. And so when I came home, I found them asleep. Because I was late, I found them asleep. And so my nobody ate my family. And then nobody in the house, none my even my children did not eat. They were so hungry. They were in fact crying. But you know what, my parents are always first.
And so he said, I went and I milked, I got milk for them, I you know, milk, my, my sheep, or whatever he had, in terms of livestock. And so he brought milk. And he sat next to glasses of milk, and he sat next to the bed.
He sat next to the bed, and he said I was afraid to make noise. Because I didn't want to bother them and disturb them and wake them from their sleep. Like how this person was. He's so kind and righteous towards his, his his parents, that he doesn't want them to wake up, he wants them to have a full sleep.
nowadays, you have many of the children, the youth, nowadays, the parents are awake, because they don't know where their children are.
Not Oh, not only are they bothering, they don't even know where their children are. Because the parent, the children are so disobedient and
so bad that maybe the parents can't sleep at nighttime because of that. And so look at this person, he said, I spent the whole night
waiting, hoping or maybe just just in case that they would wake up. And when they did wake up, they would have their book mean their nightly drink. And so
they didn't wake up until dawn until five zero 10.
And when they woke up, I gave them their drink.
And he said, Oh Allah, if I did this for your sake, then free me from the calamity that I'm in,
free me from the calamity that I'm in. And so the boulder moved. But it didn't move enough, it moves just a little bit just enough for them to see outside. But they could not, they could not leave the cave. And when you reflect upon this, and of course the second person, you can read more about the second person also of what he did. And the third person also, all three of them did that until finally they were able to escape. But just the I'll just give you the example the first one just because of the time restraints that we have.
The first person he was the call client he was to his parents.
He but the thing is, what he did for his parents is nothing more than what his parents had already done for him.
when you really think about it, think about it carefully. When we were infants, when we were babies, our parents
took care of us. And if they didn't have enough food, or they had the good part good food, they gave it to us. And they would starve and give it to us instead. And if there was only enough and they would just give it to us first before anybody else. And at nighttime.
Anytime of the night. If you woke up that night before they would go to sleep, they would make sure you have enough milk. You know I have a I have a daughter who is 10 months old. And when we when we run out of milk at two, maybe at 12 o'clock, my wife would say you know we've run out of milk. I mean there's only a little bit left you have to go to the supermarket or to the the corner grocery store. Yeah, you have to get that milk going, Man, I'm tired. Can't we just give her give her water?
No, you go get the milk. And I go I get the keys that I drive. At night time like one o'clock, two o'clock. Doesn't matter what time it is. You go.
You go, you know our parents. They did that for us. Before they went to sleep. They made sure that we had milk ready. They had their milk for that night so that you would wake up any time of the night. They didn't complain. Oh Why did you wake up at this time?
No, it was ready for you, it was ready for you, they already did that for us. So, any, if you did the same thing that this man did, you would only be trying to repay what they had already done.
And so, but this the the point of proof here is that in times of hardship, see these people, they may do our to Allah.
And they had good deeds, because they took advantage, advantage of the health and energy that they had before calamity struck.
So when they raised their hands, mountains move, boulders move, and mountains are shaken. Because of that, because the last the prophets have said, the autograph Illa illa yarraka should know Allah in times of ease, and he'll know you in times of hardship. So when you're when you have the energy and the strength, I want you to put yourself right now
in a condition or in time, just like these guys, or in another state where you know that you have no other way out.
Let's save somebody, for example, maybe the doctor says, The doctor says you have cancer.
And you have or that you have just this amount of time to live.
And then you're thinking about this idea.
And you're thinking about the deeds that you have, what deeds, what can I say? Yeah, Allah, I did so and so. So cure me from this cancer that I have. What do you have?
I want you to think right now. What can you use? And if you don't have anything, then you better start doing something significant, doing solely for the sake of Allah, not for people, sincerely for the sake of Allah. So when the calamity does happen, you say yeah, or law, in miracles will happen.
Miracles will happen. Allah subhana wa centacare when you're sick, says take advantage of your health before you're sick. Take advantage of your health before you're old. Because when you're old, and when you're sick, you will want to do many things. But you will not be able to you will wake up, you will wake up and realize the blessing of the health but it's too late. If you are not praying before, all the Sunnah prayers, you're not in India, now you're not able to pray all the sinner prayers, or you weren't reading the Quran before. And now you can't read the Quran so much because you're in pain,
then it might be something that's chronic, that will last for the rest of your life. Now, if you were used to doing good imagine, even if you didn't go to the masjid, even if you're not fasting, you're getting the reward that fast for the next 50 years.
For the next 50 years, so that's Yeah, to prepare yourself for that also that anytime sickness can come, and that's why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, couldn't confit dunya Kanika arriba. Now it was a bill said be in this life, as if you are a stranger, or a wayfair or traveler. Because you're not a traveler or a stranger.
When when they are somewhere then when they're away from home. Where's their heart.
You're thinking about your family, thinking about your spouse, thinking about your children, think about your friends, because you're far away. You're a stranger, you're far in a faraway land, you don't have your you don't have your friends that you're used to. Your family's not there. And you just want to finish whatever you need to do, and return home so that you can be with your friends and family again, you just want to finish because these are the people whom you who you enjoy your time with, and you spend your time with and so this is how I believe it is. They're always thinking about the true life which is the life in the hereafter and thinking about that the heart. They're
living in this life, but the heart is with the hereafter confit dunya, Kandahar, even Iberia Seville and Abdullah at the same idea Abdullah Omar he said hold them and say hi tech Ali Malik said take advantage of your health be in preparation for sickness and others take advantage your health in preparation for sickness for sickness can come in any time. Well, hi Attica Lee Mautic. And your life before death comes. Take advantage of that. Because when death comes, when it does come
it The time is over. And people the people who die they will want to come back and just c'est la ilaha illa Allah but they will not be able to that in itself to rock as to them is worth more than everything is in this dunya everything
Diamond pearls and jewels, houses and cars in this whole world. If you say you can have all of this, they after they die and they could come back, they would say no, just take all this away, I own if you give them one minute or two, you know two minutes or whatever they have done another life, they will instead of having all of that they will pray to America, give me my, my get get rid of all this, let me just pray.
It's worth more than everything to them.
Because all of that is temporary. And whatever you do in terms of good deed, good deeds, is what will last. And that's why. And then as Muslims, our health, also the health that we have, the body that we have, is a trust from Allah for us to take care. And so if we keep ourselves strong and healthy, we will be rewarded by Allah for that. And if we do the opposite, then we are responsible and we're accountable for what we do to our bodies in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala because it's a it is an Amana a trust that Allah Subhana has entrusted us with. So if you exercise you take care, you eat good, you take care of your health Be strong, then you will be rewarded by a law for doing
that. So the next time you go out and exercise and say that ilaha illAllah I'm doing this for the sake of Allah in him you go and exercise you will be rewarded for Allah by Allah Subhana for that. And because this is a trust and so if you don't take care of that trust also, then you again as I mentioned, you'll be responsible for that in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala can so our health. Also, Allah subhanho wa Taala will ask us about our health. A lot of people ask us, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in our llama use our annual abdomen in a minute Nam Millenium. indeed one of the first the first thing that Allah will ask concerning the blessings that He has
given to you is, he will ask you on the Day of Judgment, alumnus just smacker did we not make your body healthy. And this is a great blessing, did we not make your body blessed? healthy, and did we not give you cold water to drink? Do you not give you did you not have water? These are the great blessings. You know, water is
you can't live without water. If you go out if you go without water for three days, you will die. If you don't drink water for three days, you will die you can go without food for the next week or so for about two weeks. But without water, you will die after two weeks. And if you die after three days, if you're in the desert, it's even less than that.
During the desert, of course, it's even less than that. But the blessings of Allah Subhana the great blessing of health is one of the major blessings that Allah Subhana Allah has given to us. And that's why
we're happy to manabi it's one of the tablet and one of the great scholars, most of February, he said the rules.
He said they had of blessings. I mean, the great, the great blessings are three, the great blessings are three. I mean, these are the top blessings. I will own a willow honey metal Islam. The first is Islam, that a loss of has given you guidance and made you Muslim. And that's you can't have anything else. There's no other blessing. Unless you have this blessing first, no other blessing will count. Except unless you have this blessing first. And so, so be thankful for a lot of time for this great blessing of Islam. Because if you're not thankful, then maybe I lost and I would take that away from you. So be thankful that you're Muslim. The second great blessing is number two, the alfia says
number two laugh is health. Because if you don't have health, then you're not going to be able to live pleasant in this pleasantly in this world. You're not going to be happy, you're not going to be happy no matter what you have in terms of wealth, it will not you will not matter. If you're not healthy, it will not matter. And that's why you see sick people who inherit a lot of money, they would give all the wealth that they have just to be healthy, like you and I
all the money doesn't really matter to them. It doesn't matter if you're like you're feeling pain all the time. And you're suffering all the time. What uses are the blessing of what uses any other thing if you don't have that. And so that's the second thing. The third great blessing is the blessing of wealth and sustenance that Allison has given to us. He's given us enough to eat because there's some people who don't have enough to eat. It's given us the clothing that we have, because many people don't have the type of clothing that we have. And he's given us the blessing of you know, just having a car being able to drive
Many people don't even dream, having cars to them doesn't even come into their dreams. They can't even dream about that. If you go to like many of the poor countries, these are only for the rich people. But as we go out, we go everywhere in our cars, we don't even think about these blessings. And so think about these blessings. And ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to increase our blessings and how do we how do we show our,
our gratitude for all these blessings that we have by using these blessings to please Allah.
If Allah gives you this, then use it to go to the masjid. Use it to do things that are pleasing to Allah, Allah give you health, then stand up and pray. And when it's time to fast, fast for the sake of Allah, when it's Mondays fast, and when you're when you have wealth, spend it for the sake of Allah, show that you are, show that you are in your in full gratitude or you're thankful that our last one has given you these blessings, that Allah Subhana Allah will give you more and as a Muslim, if something does happen, though.
The Muslim is the happiest person in this world. When, why? Because if he has these blessings, and he's thankful, then he's being rewarded by Allah for the blessings that he has. But if he the blessings are taken away from him, he is patient and he knows he's being rewarded for that patient, for the patients that he has. And so he's also happy and that's why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said and Hadith from Abu huraira, Tierra de la and he said he been an emerald woman. He said, Indeed, the affairs of the believers are strange. The true believer at the moment is very strange. In America who hire everything that happens to him, or his affairs is always good for him. Well, he

When when blessings be fall upon him when good things happen to him. He is thankful and it's good for him, because he is thankful. And so he's going to be rewarded by Allah be rewarded by Allah for his for being thankful what I saw, but hold on Raw sabar, for can hire Allah. And when a calamity befalls upon him when something happens to him, then he is patient, and it's good for him. So no matter what happens to a believer, it's always good for him. It's always good for him. And but we have to remember, be
thankful for the blessings that Allah has given to us, especially that blessing of health, and energy, especially in our youth for age, we have to take advantage of that, because it might not continue along might test you. And especially during the times that we are living in, maybe the trials and tribulations will come and you will not be able to do the normal things that a Muslim can do. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu lessem warned us in Hadith and Sunnah Timothy from obihiro. He said, badie, rodilla Masada, he said make sure take advantage to do good deeds. Before seven things happen. Halton zerona, Illa, clemencia are you going to wait until you're impoverished?
That will make you forget Allah subhanho wa Taala. And maybe, you know, when you're some people they are so they're in a in a state where they're so poor, that they can't properly worship a lot in terms of you know, there's they have to do so many things, just to keep themselves alive and just to take care of their family members. They have no time for the masjid. They have no time they have no money to give, to help out and doing good deeds. And so are you gonna wait until poverty afflicts you with a win and malaria, or sometimes it's the opposite. Sometimes the loss of a handle that makes the person very rich and wealthy. And then he says, You know what, I can't go to the masjid
because I got to take care of my business. I have so many things to take care of. And so sometimes, a person who's given wealth, that wealth doesn't benefit him, he doesn't spend it correctly. It makes him busy and takes him away from the religion from the dean.

Elmo Moulton modulation, or death, that's already prepared and everybody will face that. So do all that you can before that our dead job or that job. And when he comes for shadow Coronavirus, a bin

So prepare yourself and do all the good deeds before some of these things happen with Sarah was to add to our armor, or the hour in the hour indeed, is more fearful and, and, and bitter than all of those things. In other words, when death comes or the day of judgment comes and everybody has their day of judgment, and there's the major Day of Judgment, and everybody has the minor Day of Judgment which is your the time that you die, so be careful. So take advantage of your health and time that you have before some of these things come
before the conditions change and you will not be able to do anything. So when these things come in you are in a state where you have been doing many of these good deeds you will have it's like your it's these good deeds that you have that you're doing. It will be like storage for a year storing it inshallah for later on, so that our last one has pleased with you. So when hardship does come, you can raise your hand also say yeah, Allah I used to do such and such things. So saved me from the trials and tribulations of the job saved me from the trials and tribulations that I'm in like say maybe you've gone broke, you have no money and people are like after you. Yeah, Allah
provide me with provisions from you. That which is how Allah and Allah will give you provisions from where you did not know before, and where you never perceived.

so that you return to Allah because sometimes some people they forget Allah
and you don't see them in a Masjid. As soon as he loses his job.
You see him coming to the masjid every day. Now we can only because he has time because he's, he's sad, he's depressed. And so he returns back to Allah. But if Allah did not make him lose his job, but Allah did not make him lose his job, then you would never see him in the masjid. So Allah is like, telling him to come back. And sometimes these afflictions happen because Allah loves that person. He wants that person to come. But if you're thankful for the thankful to Allah already, and you're always thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala in sha Allah, maybe Allah somehow say, you know, my servant is worshiping even though he has a lot of money, and he has he has all these blessings,
he's healthy. But you know, he's returning to he's, he's still praying, he's still fasting. Now Allah will keep you with that blessing. Okay, will you remain that way? Because you're doing this anyways. But maybe, what do you see is that you're not fulfilling your responsibilities in worshipping Allah correctly, in being sincere in concentrating on your worship. Maybe Allah will say, you know, this person needs a reminder. Let me just make him sick. And so then he becomes that person becomes sick. And that's when you realize you say yeah, Allah, Allah, Allah and you raise your hands and you return to Allah. So you don't want that to happen. You always ask Allah not to
have that. If you want to preserve the condition that you're in also, ask a loss of how to increase your Eman and continue to do good deeds. Continue to do good deeds, do as much as you can, and even then, you will not have to worry. When sickness does come remember the Prophet Solomon said, either Mattila labdoo Asafa Cotabato, Mr McKenna yamano mo Cayman Saha. When my servant is sick, or when he travels, everything that he used to habitually do will be written for him.
When he's sick, or when he's traveling, so when you're sick, you will still get the same reward, they will also still be rolling, even though you didn't go to the masjid. Even though you didn't fast today, you'll still get that reward of fasting, because you used to do them before. But if you didn't do them before, and you can't do them now, the only thing you have is just to sit there and make dua to Allah.
Your account is not going to continue to grow, your account has stopped. And whatever you need to do now you can't do many things. You can't help people anymore. You can't go to work. So you don't have money to help build the massages in the schools and so forth. Because you can't go to work, you're sick. And now you need other people to take care of you. Now you need other people to take care of you. So that's why the health that we have, don't be tricked by the shaitan. The shavon is deceiving us right now. Just like that old man is taken care of. It's like, it's nearly like they say, it's like taking candy from a baby. It's like taking a Mercedes.
From a grown up, right? He's taken all your time. He every single day, you can have so much you can do so many things to please Allah.
But the shaitan says, You know what? Manchester United is playing Leeds or Manchester City and you're like sitting there your whole time. And you're like, screaming and yelling passionately. And all those times like you will Oh, when the game is over. Let me just sit down and listen to these commentators when they say How about what happened? Where are they at now? and so forth. And so you're wasting your time away. And then when you finish, you go into the Internet, and then you're like chatting away, reading people's Facebook's left and right. And all of a sudden it's 11 o'clock and you got nothing done.
And then you have to go to sleep. Imagine if death came that night.
Or you became sick
that night? I mean, what would happen?
Allah who right continued to write for you like you sat down to to watch Manchester United. I don't think there's much reward in that.
But if you were reading the Quran, if you were studying knowledge seeking knowledge, then that's different. So I know I've been taken a lot of time that's my that's like they say, you know, like, never give a chef. Never give a woman a telephone or a shaker microphone, because he just keeps on talking.
