Aquila modesetting Bidda Akula be the atom Bala Wakulla Bala let him feed now Jelani La Jolla Camino now, my brothers and sisters in Islam, it gives me a great delight and joy and honor to be among you here all we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to accept our gathering and to forgive our sins and our shortcomings. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, we all know that death is a calamity. Allah subhanho wa Taala did not refer to anything as being a calamity directly more than death. In the Quran, Allah subhanahu wa taala he said for a sorbet comb mostly but to note, the death of the calamity of death strikes you. The idea is we know that death is a calamity for your relatives and your friends and

00:02:12--> 00:03:01

those around you. Because the family of the dead, they mourn the loss of their loved one, and they are grieving and they are sad and so on. So it's a calamity for those around the dead person, the relatives of the dead person, but how is death a calamity for the person that has died? This is what the ayah is saying. For also a bad coup mostly but to promote the calamity of death struck you and affected you. How is it a calamity for the person that is leaving their debt? The answer is calamity or death is considered a calamity. Because when the person dies, in the VA sallallahu alayhi wasallam themselves, either emeritus no Adam on top of

00:03:02--> 00:03:38

when the son of Adam dies, all his good deeds come to an end. This is why death is considered a calamity for the person that has died. He can no longer do any righteous deeds. He can no longer use his tongue to read and grant. He can no longer see one Subhan Allah while Subhan Allah earns a person a mountain the size of all of Hassan and he can no longer do this. The dead person can no longer use his feet to walk down masjid

00:03:39--> 00:04:03

and that would have earned him light on the day of judgment that has stopped for him. The dead person can no longer use his eyes to look at that which is pleasing to Allah to look at the Quran, the dead person can no longer fast, he can no longer give a charity and Osaka he can no longer build and enhance his relationship with Allah.

00:04:04--> 00:04:16

The dead person, his record of good deeds has closed and it has come to an end. This is why death is a calamity for the person who has died.

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

But this sounds depressing.

00:04:20--> 00:04:26

And there is hope in the V sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us about incredible hope for the believer.

00:04:27--> 00:04:38

And maybe sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, When the Son of Adam dies, all his deeds come to an end except for three things.

00:04:39--> 00:05:00

There are three channels of righteous good deeds that could possibly be your source of Hassan while you leave it in your grave until the day of resurrection. And these three things that I want to share with you in today's Hoba should be the investment project of

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Each and every single one of us sitting here. You know, often we get distracted in this world, the life, businesses investments every time. And every century and every decade, there's something new that comes out. When the Bitcoin came out, everyone was focused on the Bitcoin, how can I make money from behind of this? When something else comes out? People are focused? Where's my next investment was my next business? How can I make this money? How can I have a river of wealth coming into my account? The believer thinks at a higher degree than this. He's not only concerned with his financial situation in this world life. He's also concerned about his spiritual earnings in the

00:05:43--> 00:05:55

hereafter. So now, as a believer, you're supposed to think smart and intelligent, When I die, and people have long forgotten me.

00:05:56--> 00:06:32

How can I continue a revenue of has entered into my grave as I lay there, and I have been forgotten by my family and by my friends, you need to start investing, and thinking, listen to these three matters. And these are lifelong projects. Every single day, you should be working on them. So that when you die, hollows, die, you sit, relax in your grave, and you have a revenue of Hasselblad coming into your grave, number one, and that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, so the cartoon geria an ongoing charity.

00:06:34--> 00:07:19

That means you're supposed to first and foremost be working on a charity that you establish in your life now, so that when you die, and people continue to benefit from your soda, from your charity project that you established, you continue to earn her Senate in your grave. So DACA to geria environment, no more, we have a hammer Allah, He said, This is a lock. It is an endowment that you make for yourself now, before your death. You know, often today, when someone passes away, people come and they get together and they build the masjid for him, they build the wall for him. That's good. But it's not as good as if you built it while you are alive.

00:07:20--> 00:07:53

So now have this as a project for yourself. And make it something big. Because remember, this is a huge investment for yourself. Think of building a masjid, somewhere around the world, or a world or an orphanage or a school? Yes, it's gonna cost 10s and 1000s of dollars every week, set aside some money and your intention, Oh Allah, I'm investing for my afterlife, it might take you 10 years 15 years doesn't matter. Put money on the side.

00:07:54--> 00:08:15

And this is an agreement between you and Allah, that once I get the right amount of 50,000 60,000, whatever it is, it's going to cost you to build that masjid, then you're finally going to build it, hoping that every person that prays in that masjid, and reads Quran in there and attends a lecture

00:08:16--> 00:08:39

and does your decaf in there. And makes will go in there. And every like, and every shoot, all of that is in your scale of good deeds while you're alive, and after you die. So when these people are benefiting from the good project that you established in this world, the life this is supposed to be in your

00:08:40--> 00:09:13

in your projects. This is supposed to be one of your lifelong projects that you work on from now. Make it worthwhile, so that when you stand on the day of judgment before Allah azza wa jal you stand on it. Oh Allah solution. This is what I worked on in my life. I established a masjid for your sake. I established an education center for your sake. I established a medical center for your sake. What are you going to come with on the Day of Judgment? Paula, how you're going to come cheap and lose on the Day of Judgment.

00:09:14--> 00:09:35

So there is no doubt the believer is supposed to be working on something huge that he wants to come on the day of judgment and presented and that very same project you establish, has said it continues doesn't matter you died you didn't do no problems. The continuous has an ad a flowing into your grief so long as people are benefiting from it. That's number one.

00:09:36--> 00:09:51

Number two and the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam said a while ago on Saleh on the other level. This is the second channel of Hassan ad that flows into your grief after your death. A righteous child that makes dua for you.

00:09:52--> 00:09:53

So you're in your grief.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

And your righteous child says, Oh ALLAH forgive my father.

00:10:00--> 00:10:26

Allah bestow your mercy and your forgiveness upon my father and mother. See that one diet that your child makes for you after your death, it goes a long way. In bringing you incredible Hassan and blessings in your grief, and maybe Salah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says that the parents are raised ranks in the Paradise, he being elevated.

00:10:27--> 00:11:15

So they say to Allah, where is this elevation coming from? Where is it coming from? Why are we going up? Allah azza wa jal says in the hadith is authentic, be still fairly well Adicolor. Because your child is making dua for you. He's asking Allah for forgiveness on your behalf and you're going up, you're benefiting. This is a huge project to work on. Therefore, the second thing you should be working on is the righteousness of your children. This is a lifelong project. And this is both the responsibility of the mother and the father together. It's called parenting. It's not called fathering or mothering. It's called parenting, because it's the responsibility of both the father

00:11:15--> 00:11:19

and the mother, to raise their children upon righteousness.

00:11:20--> 00:11:36

So that you know, when your child makes one dua for you after your death, Wallah, it is better than that very same child, giving a million dollar Soto call on your behalf.

00:11:37--> 00:12:05

Because the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a righteous child that makes dua, he did not say a righteous child, but gives us all on your behalf, even though there's goodness in that, but it's not as good as a dua a righteous child makes. So now your concern is how am I going to meet my children righteous? How am I going to instill within them that they do not forget me in their dua?

00:12:06--> 00:12:36

Therefore, you need to look after them. And the greatest concern when looking after your children is their faith and their deen and their religion and their Islam and their relationship with Allah. That is more important than taking your children to a soccer game, or to a karate game, or to a football game, whatever it is. That's good, no problems. But do not forget that your greatest responsibility with your children is their Deen their religion. And this is what you'll be questioned about on the Day of Judgment.

00:12:37--> 00:12:55

Whether you thought your children and Islam are solid, and Quran or not. And I give you something very simple. If you want your children to be saved from the evil and the corruption that is on earth, you need to teach them two things.

00:12:57--> 00:13:42

And a solid, that's it, you teach in these two things. They are guarded and they are protected and they are righteous be if Nila and you would have worked on the second matter that brings you have set out and good deeds into your grave one after you're dead. If and that's the second thing. Invest in your children spend money on them to teach them perhaps I don't know, I'm not familiar with this area here is the Islamic centers is the Islamic education the I don't know. But hamdulillah there is a lot of online platform and authentic online platforms in which you can enroll your children and they can sit behind the screen for a few hours a week and actually learn their deep authentic deep

00:13:43--> 00:14:11

spend, invest, continue to put money on your children, teach them the Quran, teach them their Deen, this is not going to go to waste. You will pass on the Day of Judgment, your responsibility. And also they will remember you in your DUA because they're righteous, and they will make God for you. And that's also a river of sanity in your grave. And finally, number three in the beasts Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam says, we're in the moon, you interfer will be he

00:14:13--> 00:14:59

or beneficial knowledge that you leave behind that people benefit from. That's also a good river of good deeds that continues in your grave after you die. So that's your third project that you're supposed to be working on. How am I going to leave behind beneficial knowledge? And here, many people understand this wrong. They say, Look, this is not for me. I'm not the scholar. I'm not a sharer. I'm not a person of knowledge. So this one's not for me out for me. That's wrong. That's weak understanding. Anyone you'll never be beneficial knowledge. Everyone has something of the knowledge of Islam. Take that and teach it to your friends. Take that and teach it to

00:15:00--> 00:15:15

The people in the street and the goodness of Islam. And I'll give you a story about an old man that lived in Saudi Arabia, an old man. He entered the masjid for Salah to Lhasa one day. Listen to how he applied this hadith and the share

00:15:17--> 00:15:49

after Salat and also he shares with the audience with the congregation hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So on that specific day after Lhasa chef opens the book and he reads a very famous Hadith, the hadith of Ebola or the Allah one in which in the sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there are two phrases that are most beloved to the Most Merciful, they are beloved to Allah, and they are very light on the tongue, and they are heavy in the scale. And they are Subhan Allah He won't be Hamdi Subhan Allah, He loves

00:15:50--> 00:16:32

this old man. This was the first time he ever heard this hadith. Never heard it before. So after the lesson finished, he approached the chef and he said to him, Chef, give me a few minutes of your time. And repeat this hadith for me until I memorize it. So the chef repeated the Hadith 1235 times until this old man got a good grip of it and he memorized this old man now, every single time he saw someone he'd say, Brother, can I just take one minute of your time? Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there are two phrases light on the tongue heavy in the scale, most beloved or ramen soup Allah Muhammad Subhanallah love him Salah Miko, and he'd walk, and he trained someone else. And they do

00:16:32--> 00:16:51

the same thing and do same thing that until he got sick, and he entered the hospital. And he would say this to the nurse, and he would say it to the doctor before the surgery, and he died. And that was his state, he took one Hadith, and he made a mission for himself to spread it as far and wide as he can. And every person who learned that from him,

00:16:52--> 00:17:40

that means this person left behind beneficial knowledge. So when anyone said Subhan Allah who are behind the Subhan Allah hint of him, and it gave that person heaviness in the skill, he got the same reward for it as well. How simple was this? Everyone can be a part of this leaving behind beneficial knowledge. Unfortunately, today, many people without realizing the leaves behind them unbeneficial knowledge. And that's the world of social media today. Anyone who has an account on social media, and just randomly and carelessly presses share share puts a comment somewhere put to like somewhere it pops up at someone else's account sees something haram something impermissible learn something

00:17:40--> 00:17:47

fabricated, that they're not the majority of people are wasting their time leaving behind non beneficial knowledge.

00:17:49--> 00:18:01

Perhaps the chair but it continues to roll out in your grave after your death. A person is supposed to be cautious and careful what he does on social media.

00:18:02--> 00:18:29

Rather than Miss careless sharing and commenting. Be Smart, Be wise. And say I'm going to look for something authentic, something beneficial. One minute two minute clip. And I want to share this on law if one person one person benefited from it. That becomes righteous and good beneficial knowledge that you left behind. And it becomes a source of hazards for you in the grave.

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

Find a brother that doesn't know how to read and

00:18:33--> 00:18:34

teach him solo till

00:18:36--> 00:18:43

then every time he recited in his solid, you're earning the reward of his recite teacher will further.

00:18:45--> 00:19:32

Make yourself useful. Go around your community. Take what you have of Islam and present it to the people. You don't know when Allah subhanho wa Taala will please stay heavy in the huge reward for you. You know, we arrived today this morning. And I've already come across about five or six people, the only from the Muslims from the people that are living in this part of Australia. And Subhan Allah, I regretted one thing that I didn't have with me, pamphlets that speak about Islam. Really nice, caring people. Someone made a comment about my dress, and he said that's lovely. That's wonderful. I wish I had a pamphlet to give him say brother here read something about Islam. You

00:19:32--> 00:19:59

don't know. Maybe he's down the track. It sparks some interest in him. And there is a website. It's called Islamic pamphlets.com get onto that website and download these pamphlets. Have them in your car, have them with you. Whenever you walk across someone and you see someone in the streets. Obviously we're not going to have the time to speak to everyone. 1015 minutes people don't have this time. But take out a pamphlet. Brother This is a gift

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

Thought I would like to give to you. I hope you benefit from it, if he benefits from it, and it becomes the reason for his Islam, Allahu Akbar, what kind of goodness is going to be written for you?

00:20:13--> 00:20:36

Then imagine this person that accepts Islam becomes a reason for his family to accept Islam. And those family stopped giving birth to children that are upon Islam, and a generation 234 Generations come the almost slumps. It all started because of you in a pamphlet that was in your pocket. And you own the house and out of all of these people, and all the goodness they do.

00:20:37--> 00:21:02

Make yourself useful on Earth. These are huge projects we're supposed to be working on solo because you want to do soil, and anyone you interfer we don't underestimate these matters. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, we ask Allah azza wa jal to grant us goodness, whilst Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept from a soul. A call to call the head are still for Allah Allah Allah confessed tofu in the who who will have ordered laheem
