Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah He Allah Le he also he has mine. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam we are standing now in bacteria on Wattpad This is a place that it is a sunnah when you come to El Medina to visit this place and to see the diet that and to be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us. This is the cemetery of El Medina, where the believers are buried from the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Until this day, when you come into a cemetery it reminds you of death instantly reminds you of death. Hundreds and hundreds and 1000s of bodies are surrounding us when the V Sun Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, act fill in victory held him

00:00:41--> 00:01:24

in Lovette. Remember, the destroyer of pleasures in abundance. Death was described as a destroyer of pleasures, because this is what it does. And this is why one of the rewards in the Paradise was that the believers live forever, because living forever allows you to enjoy whatever you are given of blessings. So death is described as a destroyer of pleasures because whatever you have in your hands in this life, you know that it will not last and that you will be separate and separated away from it very soon when your soul comes out. So Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam he said, make mention of death in abundance at Pharaoh mean victory had the will that we're going to hammer home Allah they

00:01:24--> 00:02:08

say that the purpose the the wisdom and the benefit of remembering death in abundance. Three things number one, a person he stuns to ADAMA, when you remember this your Eastern October, and a person becomes pleased with Allah subhanahu Medina and a person finds energy to continue to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala these are the benefits of continuously remembering death. When we come into a cemetery. I remember the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in where he once he said, Can I mean men can have Kubla Khan or Raj you don't monovision Juma there was a man much before us of a narration is mentioned that he was from Benny slide. He came past a skull. Now a

00:02:08--> 00:02:55

skull would be in a in a cemetery. He went into a cemetery and he saw a skull on the ground for Nevada, la. He looked at the scope, photography in FCW shape, he remembered something within himself as sin transgression between him and Allah subhanho wa Taala is remembering his reflecting. And so another sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says about this man, this moment is standing he's looking at the skull. He said Allah Houma and or Anna Anna, and allow word to be more aware to be Zulu. He said Allah, you are who you are. Yeah, it is Allah, Allah azza wa jal is the great the superior of the mighty. Well, Anna Anna and I am the sleeve, the weak, the ignorant sleeve, the humbled sleeve,

00:02:56--> 00:03:42

until our word will morphia you are the one who continuously forgives over and over and over again, while anilao were to be vulnerable, and I am the one who continuously turns to the sin over and over and over. Then he has to say he did. He went into Suzhou for Allah subhanho wa Taala and he heard a voice saying to him, Eero fow, suck and allow were to be vulnerable and allow were to build on filler, raise your head. I indeed, am the one who continuously forgives, and you're the one who is the one that continuously returns to the sin. So he raised his head from the floor from his sujood for Horfield Allah and Allah azza wa jal forgive him. And when I'm out here, Muhammad Allah took

00:03:42--> 00:04:23

from the Hadith that a visit, a visit to the graveyard. And a moment of reflection between you and yourself, could be a reason for why you're forgiven from your sins. It could be a reason for why you are forgiven from your sins and transgression and rebellion against Allah subhanahu wa taala. This is what happened to this man, my brothers and sisters in Islam. This is the result of death when you remember death, and you come to the cemetery. It results in forgiveness. It shouldn't result in you being depressed and worried and anxious. This is an enjoyable moment in where you're seeking the forgiveness of Allah subhanahu wa taala when you remember this, and you remember your shortcomings

00:04:23--> 00:04:55

with Allah subhanho wa taala. As a matter of fact, the best moments in the life of a believer are his final moments on Earth. As an abyssal Allahu alayhi wa sallam says that when the believer is approaching death, he is given good news which she'll have believed when he left he will karate he is given good news of the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon him. So then in the be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that this believing servant that is dying, or how bad Should I have met? Mmm hmm. He becomes

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

passionate for that which is before him, which is

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

Meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala and meeting what Allah azza wa jal has set for him of reward for humbly Allah for Allah Allah Who Luca, when he is the good news from the angel, even at this moment loves the meeting with Allah and Allah loves to meet him servant when the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam and I ended with this when he was dying. He mentioned to names of the names of Allah subhanahu wata, and anyone that is anxious and worried and afraid of death needs to reflect over these two names of Allah subhanho wa Taala these are the names that Allah says. Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned at the time of his death, when he said, Bella rafiqul Allah, Bella rafiqul

00:05:45--> 00:06:26

Allah, and in another narration as he was dying sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Allahumma fieldly Will hammy one hit me the rafiqul Allah, he mentioned the name of Allah Allah Fie, and his name Allah Allah. There is difference of opinion as to what a rafiqul Allah refers to an imam nawawi Rahim Allah. He said that Allah rafiqul Allah is Allah Himself is Allah subhanahu wa taala as in every sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was dying, he was saying Bella rafiqul earlier meaning I choose Allah over this worldly life and I am prepared to go and meet Allah subhanahu wa dyal. Look at these two names. I don't know if it comes from the word that if which means compassion, and gentleness,

00:06:26--> 00:07:11

mercy and care, and nobody sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is remembering Allah's name that refers to compassion and gentleness and mercy, because this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala does with the believer, as he is dying. So it's like this worldly life is full of evil and corruption and hypocrisy and transgression. And I am ready to go to Rafiq to the one who is full of mercy and compassion and gentleness and his name and Allah, Allah azza wa jal the Most High. So what that means is that this worldly life is it was called dunya. Many Dehner something that is inferior, something that is belittle Allah subhanho wa Taala is Allah as though I am leaving this dunya I am

00:07:11--> 00:07:42

leaving that which is inferior, that which is low, and I am going to Allah Allah to the highest subhanho wa taala. So remember these names of Allah azza wa jal and it comforts the person whenever he remembers the topic of death, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us a good ending. And we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to forgive the debt around us here and to forgive the debt of the Muslims all around the world in a whole new vertical called La wa sallahu wa salam ala delicata you know, Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi as much
