And once again I am grateful for this opportunity that Allah azza wa jal has gathered us once again in this old life. We ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to accept our gathering to forgive our sins and our shortcomings in a whole new valley called pada. Rally. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam. I want to start off with a story that was mentioned by Imam Ahmed Rahim Allah and it is the story that involves three of the best and the greatest men to walk the earth often the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:00:35 --> 00:00:37

And that is a story

00:00:39 --> 00:01:09

between Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu Omar and of man of the Allahu Anhu Jamia and the story in sha Allah, Allah is going to be the star and it's going to drive the point home and that is that the believers greatest concern is supposed to be the hereafter nothing else. So if Malboro the Allahu Anhu narrates the story. He said one day he was sitting and this was during the hilife of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu.

00:01:11 --> 00:01:14

So as a matter of the Allahu Anhu was sitting

00:01:15 --> 00:01:20

on a lovely Allahu Anhu walked past him and he gave him a Salam.

00:01:21 --> 00:01:24

So a man did not respond.

00:01:26 --> 00:01:45

And an hour of the Allahu Anhu was bothered by this. So he continued to work until he reached Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu and he complained to him. He said to him moments ago, I walked past Earth man, and I gave him salah, and he did not respond to me.

00:01:47 --> 00:02:12

So Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu took this matter serious, because brotherhood between the Companions was preserved in a secret matter. So Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu Amara, both of them went towards men. And our work rob the Allahu Anhu said to have man Why didn't you give your brother Omar a Salam Why didn't you respond to his Salah?

00:02:13 --> 00:02:15

So forth middle of the Allahu Anhu said,

00:02:16 --> 00:02:21

although the Allahu Anhu did not walk past me, nor did he give me any seller.

00:02:23 --> 00:02:40

So our model the Allahu Anhu he said, Wallahi I walked past him, and I gave him a Salam. However, it's the pride of Benny Omega referring to the family of man, it his pride and his arrogance that prevented him from returning my salah.

00:02:42 --> 00:02:48

So then Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu he looked back at off man. And rough man

00:02:49 --> 00:02:55

emphasized once again, saying what Allah He He did not pass by me and he did not give me Salah.

00:02:57 --> 00:02:59

So Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu he said to

00:03:01 --> 00:03:10

the truth Nairobi, Allahu Anhu was bothered by something huge. And so he perhaps didn't even notice you notice your salah

00:03:13 --> 00:03:27

upon this, or flag of the Allahu Anhu said, Indeed, oh, Abu Bakr. So Abu Bakr Radi Allahu anhu, questioned of man, and he said team here of man. What has bothered you?

00:03:28 --> 00:03:37

And what has concerned you to the point that you forgot and you did not notice your brother walking past you and giving you a Salah?

00:03:40 --> 00:03:40

And then

00:03:42 --> 00:03:45

of Nairobi, Allahu Anhu. He said, Yeah, Abu Bakr.

00:03:46 --> 00:03:49

In the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam passed away.

00:03:51 --> 00:04:00

He passed away, and I did not have the chance to ask him, what saves us on the Day of Judgment work.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:16

And so he was occupied. And he was so concerned about the day of judgment and the afterlife and the hereafter that he didn't even notice over Robbie Allahu anhu, walking past and giving salam

00:04:17 --> 00:04:25

and by the way of man is already guaranteed the paradise. He's from the 10 that are already guaranteed the paradise.

00:04:26 --> 00:04:37

So Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu he says, cut Sal to Wonderlic I've already asked him to be some Allahu Allah your Salam adopt this matter that is bothering you.

00:04:38 --> 00:04:59

So of metal of the Allahu Anhu immediately got up and he rushed Abu Bakr and he said to him, BRB until only under Help cobia he said to my father and my mother, I'll sacrifice them for your sake. You're the most delightful person to ask this question to Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told me

00:05:00 --> 00:05:03

What did he answer you? What did he say to you? If

00:05:05 --> 00:05:30

so, Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu. He said, I asked the messenger salAllahu alayhi wa sallam, and I set the email rasool Allah min Naja to manage to have an armor or messenger of Allah. What will save us on that day on the day of judgment on the day in which people and mankind have gathered naked barefooted uncircumcised poor.

00:05:32 --> 00:05:38

So in the V sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Men cobalamin mill Kelly Mata Lottie out of

00:05:39 --> 00:05:41


00:05:42 --> 00:05:44

Florida, for he Allahu

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

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, Whoever accepts and adheres and commits to the word that I presented to my uncle of authority, and he rejected, which is La Ilaha, Illa Allah,

00:06:02 --> 00:06:50

then this would save him on the day of judgment. And this would be what will save him on the day of judgment, and in the afterlife. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, this is a story on introduction to the motto, we realize from this Sahaba OB Allahu anhu, their greatest concern in life was the afterlife. And how are they how are they going to make it on the Day of Judgment? How will we be saved from Allah's punishment? And how will they enter the paradise and this is a concern and concern of the three greatest men that walk the earth after Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, each and every single one of them was promised by in the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam a position in the

00:06:50 --> 00:07:38

Paradise, yet the belief that cannot control his emotion and his heart, but to be concerned. And so tonight's lecture is going to be how does he person meet the afterlife his greatest concern, especially during a time and age in which we live in a digital age that we live in? Foods are in our hands 24/7 We occupied and bothered by news perhaps if this story was narrated by one of us, then if you were to complain about a brother that gave you Salam and he did not respond, maybe that person was occupied by something of this world the life and not something of the afterlife want to hold on? To 11 Now we ask Allah azza wa jal to rectify our state and affairs. And there is some Allahu alayhi

00:07:38 --> 00:07:45

wa sallam he says that the as in the hadith of zayde, heaven forbid Toby Allah one monka Hara to humble.

00:07:47 --> 00:07:50

This is a Hadith, this hadith and the result

00:07:51 --> 00:08:37

teaches us that as mankind, we have two routes to choose from one of these roads mankind Attila hirato, Hmong, anyone who makes the afterlife his greatest concern, there are prizes, there are three things that are mentioned in the Hadith. We will leave these until the end. And now we're going to focus on this first point. How does a believer make the afterlife his greatest concern? My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, these are not just words that you see on your tongue when you wake up in the morning. It's not like you get up in the morning, and you say are Bismillah today the afterlife is my greatest concern. And then you move on in your daily routine and your daily life.

00:08:37 --> 00:08:52

That's not the case, mankind to humble, the one who has made the afterlife is concerned, then this would require a commitment of worship from the very beginning of the day.

00:08:53 --> 00:08:58

And so you take out 10 To 15 to 20 minutes before select and Fisher.

00:08:59 --> 00:09:48

And he arrives at this time. And the only reason you woke up so that you can pre tour like before then and Fisher takes place. The one who gets up 20 minutes before other than Fisher with the intention of praying to God Kyla is starting to prove to himself from the very beginning of the day that the afterlife is my greatest concern. Otherwise, why would you get up at a time in which it's not a time of cooking. It's not a time to take children to school. It's not a time of work. It's not a time to respond to emails and to receive phone calls and to make phone calls. This is not a worldly time. Rather mankind that this time are all dead and all asleep and from among mankind. You

00:09:48 --> 00:09:53

wake up 20 minutes before other than Fisher Wahoo Akbar

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

and you internalize and you feel Hadith in the beasts Allahu alayhi wa sallam, in which

00:10:00 --> 00:10:04

Allah azza wa jal he says, Are you in

00:10:05 --> 00:10:11

your mid and late your early June? If so, who will uphold what while you're

00:10:12 --> 00:10:20

in the peace of Allah, Allah yourself. He says that Allah azza wa jal says, there are a person, there is a person from among

00:10:21 --> 00:10:37

my nation, my ummah, he rises at night. This could be a man or woman. Watch, observe this scenario that Allah subhanho wa Taala is highlighting and taking notice of it. You might be getting up

00:10:38 --> 00:10:55

and no one watches you and no one sees you. This is not a moment that is televised and broadcasted live on social media. This is a moment between you and Allah azza wa jal and it's going to test how sincere you are concerning meeting the afterlife your greatest concern.

00:10:56 --> 00:10:58

A person rises at night.

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

You are early enough so who who he strives and struggles against himself to perform an order

00:11:09 --> 00:11:21

of Allah social notices, the struggle and the hardship and the pain and the difficulty that it takes to get up 2030 minutes before other than failure to meet.

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

Why are they here.

00:11:24 --> 00:11:29

And on his neck on the back of his head. There are notes that are tied by a shape on

00:11:30 --> 00:11:35

for either one of our Jehol in Hamlet aka the moment you wash your face

00:11:37 --> 00:11:56

with warm water, especially in this freezing cold weather and it is permissible to turn on the tap and wait for the water to become warm. There is no sin and there is no transgression. If the water is passing and it's running and you're waiting for it to be warm,

00:11:57 --> 00:12:02

so you don't have to worry about wasting water as well hey Muhammad Allah mentioned

00:12:03 --> 00:12:04

once you wash your face,

00:12:05 --> 00:12:07

one not is untied.

00:12:09 --> 00:12:19

For either walk by a dog in Hamlet, aka when he now washes his hand. Another time is allotted for either Mercer, Herat, 700 rock,

00:12:20 --> 00:12:32

and when he wipes his head, another time is unknotted. For either what originally in Hana, Taka, and when he washes finally his foot, the last of the ties are unknotted

00:12:34 --> 00:12:46

theory of goon Allahu Diana Lavina meanwhile Allah in Asia, Allah azza wa jal, he addresses those behind the curtain. And those are the angels the high ranking angels

00:12:47 --> 00:12:53

that are in the presence of Allah subhanho wa taala. He says to them, Guru Lea De

00:12:55 --> 00:13:03

Leus Ernie, look at this servant of Mine, observe him look what he did for my sake.

00:13:04 --> 00:13:54

Go ahead and ask. Allah is saying to this person go ahead and ask make a DUA request from me. Man salary for who Allah Who Mercer Allah me for who Allahu Allah azza wa jal he says twice, whatever the servant requests from Me shall be granted to him, whatever he requests from Me shall be granted to him twice, in Ernabella, Hema home Allah they say the first time is Allah inviting you to request whatever you want from the matters of this whole life. And the second time Allah says that he is requesting from you to ask him whatever you want of the matters of the afterlife. Look at this person. He has gone up he has made who only hasn't prayed

00:13:55 --> 00:13:58

and he is in a position of an accepted

00:13:59 --> 00:14:04

Wahaca and such a person has proven to himself

00:14:05 --> 00:14:05


00:14:06 --> 00:14:08

the afterlife is his greatest concern.

00:14:09 --> 00:14:13

Once you finish on Google, and you walk out

00:14:14 --> 00:14:17

you see a shadow hola ilaha illallah

00:14:18 --> 00:14:50

wa shadow under Mohammed Abdullah he wore a pseudo Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says anyone who says this liqueur after performing an Wu foo food the habla who Jannetty femenina yet Holloman a year SHA the eight doors of the Paradise open for such a person and he is taught on the Day of Judgment into whichever one of these eight doors You're like my

00:14:51 --> 00:14:59

head does say he has not prayed yet. Just Whoo. And vicar after Allahu Allah Shiva to have more. You

00:15:00 --> 00:15:13

This is how you're building this concern within your heart. This is how you're proving to yourself until Lord SubhanaHu wa Tada that the afterlife is your greatest concern.

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

Afterwards, you hit towards your room,

00:15:19 --> 00:15:42

you hit towards the pray area that you have designated in your house. There doesn't have to be a designated area praying anywhere in the house. So that multiple parts of this house bear witness for you on the Day of Judgment that you stood and prayed for Allah azza wa jal to like my brothers and sisters in Islam Wallahi they are going to go a long way.

00:15:44 --> 00:15:46

In enhancing your relationship with Allah

00:15:48 --> 00:16:00

and raising your levels and ranks in the Paradise. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, Anyone who performs and will do and stands and prays to God.

00:16:02 --> 00:16:28

And He cleans his heart of distractions, worldly distractions. That's very easy at this time. At this time, it's very easy. And my advice is when you wake up 20 minutes before then and Fisher. Do not touch your phone. Don't touch it. Don't read a single message. Don't open WhatsApp, because that will begin to play on your heart and on your mind.

00:16:29 --> 00:16:47

You wake up fresh, you wake up clean. You wake up peaceful, tranquil. No noise around you. No destruction. No alternators keep it that way. If you want to sincerely pray to Allah God in which your heart is clear of all these destruction.

00:16:48 --> 00:16:52

Then don't touch the phone from the very beginning of this thing.

00:16:53 --> 00:17:05

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions anyone who performs an oboe and prays to God could ease his heart of all the distraction focuses on your Salah

00:17:06 --> 00:17:29

was your butler who Jana the Paradise is mandatory for such a person, Mohawk about we have scored now and accept the DA the doors of the paradise have opened. And now with these two like the Paradise has become mandatory for such a person. Why? Because this person is proving to himself Allah here to

00:17:31 --> 00:17:33

the afterlife is his greatest concern.

00:17:34 --> 00:18:26

Pre to look at Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in Surah Al Furqan will Lavina be too narrow beam sujeto PM, one of the great qualities of Allah azza wa jal mentioned of a man of the sleeves of the Most Merciful. These are people Allah ascribe to himself. These are people that are elite and special in the sight of Allah, one of their qualities. Allah azza wa jal, he said, and those who spend some of the night for they're more liberal to him for the law, they spent some of it in record and so shoot in standing an institute solid have been our best probably Allahu Anhu he said, The one who preached to like at night

00:18:27 --> 00:18:32

will be included among this A will be included from this area.

00:18:34 --> 00:18:58

And then you ask about what should I read it means to work out. I say to you minimum 10 Eight, because the beast of Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said, manpower may be actually 18 Let me look that mineral or Faline anyone who priests and recites at least 10 Is that he will not be counted that night from among the heedless.

00:18:59 --> 00:19:10

And if he is not counted from among the heedless, that means he is counted from among those who remembered Allah assertion and we're conscious and aware of Allah assertion.

00:19:11 --> 00:19:37

Solitude fell out and saw that the nurse together make 11 Eight that's your 10 Eight. And is it difficult Wallahi it is not difficult. Physically it is not difficult. But I tell you, my brothers and sisters in Islam, the strength and the power that we require, is not a physical strength. This requires spiritual strength, strength of the heart

00:19:39 --> 00:19:41

and that can only be granted by Allah assertion.

00:19:43 --> 00:19:49

So you need to be falling on your face ensued asking Allah azza wa jal to grant your spiritual strength

00:19:50 --> 00:19:54

so that you're able to meet the afterlife your greatest concern

00:19:55 --> 00:19:58

will Lavina be tuna Leon beam

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


00:20:00 --> 00:20:08

Those who spent some of their night for their Lord. See this little beam, it implies love.

00:20:09 --> 00:20:20

So the only drive and the only inspiration for why you got up at night was for Allah assertion, nothing else, no one else.

00:20:22 --> 00:20:23

Low beam.

00:20:27 --> 00:20:28

You pray these to like it

00:20:31 --> 00:21:08

and afterwards, you sit and you engage in these telephone pieces what moments before then and Fisher? The best thing to do at that time is to seek forgiveness. As Allah subhanho wa Taala praise the believers that seek his forgiveness at the time of a sow, meaning at the time of Soho, which is this before then in Frazier, Allah azza wa jal, he says, while he was still feeding bill as *, and those who commit to it still felt at the time of us have at the time of school.

00:21:09 --> 00:21:24

This is the first moment of your day, the one who does this, and he is consistent upon this, and built a routine for himself is indeed a person who has made and adhered to

00:21:25 --> 00:21:30

his afterlife and the hereafter his greatest concern.

00:21:32 --> 00:21:34

My Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

00:21:36 --> 00:21:58

a person is supposed to reflect over Allah subhanho wa Taala His mercy and Allah subhanho wa Taala is paradise and what He has prepared for the believers in the Paradise in order in order to remain motivated, and in order to remain inspired to continue to worshipping Allah azza wa jal at this very moment.

00:22:00 --> 00:22:17

And it is here where I want to share with you an incident, an incident that happens to the believers in the Paradise and wallah here I only share this with you so that it is always in your mind. When you pray these two are God at night.

00:22:19 --> 00:22:26

I'm going to share with you the greatest and the grand gift and the biggest of prizes that the believers receive in the Paradise.

00:22:28 --> 00:22:33

And that is the hadith of seeing Allah subhanahu wa taala in the Paradise that's the price.

00:22:35 --> 00:22:37

That is the greatest motivation

00:22:38 --> 00:22:51

for a believer to keep focus and key show that he makes the afterlife his greatest concern. When you get up at night, work towards this hadith and I'll share with you

00:22:52 --> 00:23:06

put it right in between your eyes. And if this doesn't serve as a great inspiration, then you need to find where your heart is and clean it and rectify it because it's perhaps really dusty and rusted.

00:23:08 --> 00:23:20

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, Yo Marionette didn't manera de la Jana Inala Beckham Tabata kata Allah yesterday LUCAM for Hi Jana zero at

00:23:21 --> 00:23:24

in the Paradise when the believers have entered

00:23:25 --> 00:23:27

a color is going to call out

00:23:29 --> 00:23:39

to people of the paradise your Lord is inviting you all for a visit. So hurry up come along to visit him Subhanahu wa Taala

00:23:40 --> 00:23:45

so the believers will see some man will pardon we hear and we obey

00:23:48 --> 00:23:53

and they will get up piste rushing to his visit SubhanaHu wa Donna

00:23:54 --> 00:23:55

for either been

00:23:56 --> 00:23:57

that long.

00:23:58 --> 00:24:02

And then the best of transportation is prepared for them.

00:24:03 --> 00:24:14

And they get on the back of these transport and it rushes the people of the paradise until the region area in the Paradise cold and where the Lafayette

00:24:15 --> 00:24:26

and why the Lafayette means a huge open space that has been made for this special appointment with Allah subhanahu wa Tada

00:24:28 --> 00:24:50

then in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said was your ma Hoonah film you heard the bear in Omaha. They all gather up in that location in that area and no one is left behind. Think of this hadith my brothers and sisters in Islam. As you wake up at night praying these two are God.

00:24:53 --> 00:24:59

Then Allah subhanahu Matana will order for his school see, to come down and be stopped

00:25:00 --> 00:25:03

blushed in that area in that open space

00:25:04 --> 00:25:23

and then thrones will be prepared and set up fruits made of light Allahu Allah Mau and thrones made of Perl and Ruby and precious stones and gems and gold and silver. The entire space is set up and prepared with Roush.

00:25:55 --> 00:26:20

while they selfie him Danny, and there is no one inferior to anyone. Everyone is equal and everyone is the same. And those that sit on the sand dunes do not feel that they are less important than those that are sitting on the thrones and the seating arrangement, the seating arrangement, the way it's decided is your presence in attendance on the day of Friday.

00:26:21 --> 00:26:40

Those that attempt selected Juma on sitting in the front lines really early are those that will be sitting in the front line on that Friday. When there is this grand special meeting with Allah azza wa jal it is according to your presence on the deal on the day of Friday.

00:26:43 --> 00:27:07

Then unabIe sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said Hatha is a stalker but be he Malaysia this room ought to be him. And Aquino home once everyone has settled and has taken their position and their police, a corner will call out and he will see an agenda in nulla Komenda Allah Hema Why didn't you read a new news como

So the believers they will see.

ina either the Lavina or Baroni Bill hope

00:29:28 --> 00:29:34

he will see where are those? Where am I sleeves that a beat me without seeing me?

00:29:35 --> 00:29:43

A Leo? A Leo boy oh one mozzie today is the day of increase and the day of abundance. See this word here?

00:29:44 --> 00:29:59

The show this is your focus every night when you wake up. Allah has Sasha know told the believers at the Lavina opera Who do you believe you and me are only were those who are shipping and never saw me

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

If in the case of the believer that wants to meet the afterlife his greatest concern, he must be standing worshiping Allah, knowing that Allah azza wa jal sees him, yet he cannot see him. Are you an intervener or Baroni believe you want me only?

00:30:19 --> 00:30:22

How to how are you going to be part of this hadith?

00:30:24 --> 00:30:33

If you've never had an effort to get up and to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and to prove that the afterlife is your concern,

00:30:35 --> 00:30:49

so all the people of the Paradise will gather and unite upon one word, they will say I'm called Raveena. For Bana, our Lord, we are pleased with that which has given us so be pleased with us bestow Your Pleasure upon us.

00:30:50 --> 00:31:09

So Allah azza wa jal would say, the people of the paradise if I wasn't pleased with you, I wouldn't have admitted you into my paradise. This is the day of increase hair they all want to miss eat. This is the day of abundance. First Aloni asked me requests from me.

00:31:10 --> 00:31:23

So they all gather and unite upon one word, and they say arena wash, economical elite. Our Lord, show us your face, so that we may look at you. Wow.

00:31:24 --> 00:31:32

This is a great moment. This is a special moment. This is the peak of all places in the Paradise.

00:31:33 --> 00:31:58

And then Allah subhanahu wa taala will remove the veil and he will remove the curtain that is between him and his creation. And it is at that moment they will all be enveloped with the light that is emanating from him SubhanaHu wata Allah, Allahu Akbar, and had Allah azza wa jal not decreed for them not to burn, we would have all burned.

00:32:00 --> 00:32:31

And there will be no one that remains in this gathering, except that Allah subhanahu wa taala will speak to him individually. And he will remind a person about the wrongdoings that he used to do in this old life. And He will say to him, don't you remember when you did such and such? And this person will say, Oh, Lord, didn't you forgive me? And Allah azza wa jal would say, of course, my forgiveness has reached you. And this is why you're in the position that you are in. And this happens every Friday.

00:32:32 --> 00:32:46

It happens every Friday. And so you recall, and you remember this hadith. And you remember this incident that happens between Allah and the believers. And this should be a great motivation and an inspiration for you all.

00:32:47 --> 00:33:04

To get up the 20 minutes before solid television and pre to look out for Allah in hope that you are invited to this open space and open land so that you can see Allah subhanho wa Taala my brothers and sisters in Islam

00:33:05 --> 00:33:10

it will be moments before that and Fisher and then once or then Fisher is called

00:33:13 --> 00:33:22

once again and Fisher is called you get up and you pray to like I had sunnah television. Don't skip to check out some little visual

00:33:24 --> 00:33:58

this to look at before Fischer and maybe some Allahu Allah you are seldom used to pray it, whether he was a resident or untravelled. Even in harsh, those who have experienced that harsh and have slipped and it must deliver. You know, people slipped on it and must deliver. They're hungry. They've slipped only a few moments, a few hours. They're tired, they're restless, it's hot. It's extreme. It's exhausting. Even then under the sun Allahu alayhi wa sallam would pray to Him like out sooner than Fisher

00:33:59 --> 00:34:04

and he would say, or Carta and Fishery hydro Mira dunya wanna fear

00:34:05 --> 00:34:29

that these took out before Salatin Fraser are better than this world the life and everything that is in it of gold and silver and cars and homes and positions and whatever you can think of how you might ask, how how and a fine was given a suitcase of a million dollars how is that not better than the two like

00:34:31 --> 00:34:36

I tell you why. And please my brothers and sisters in Islam what Allah don't miss these two like and

00:34:38 --> 00:34:50

when you pray the two like add some little treasure be one and show and aware that there is nothing possibly on earth that you could be doing that is better than what you're doing at that very moment.

00:34:51 --> 00:34:57

Nothing will Allah He if the entire world was given to you. It will look be better than these two. Oh my god.

00:34:58 --> 00:34:59

How to Understand

00:35:00 --> 00:35:04

But oximeter will let you see the reality of this in your grief and on the Day of Judgment.

00:35:06 --> 00:35:20

And you will be grateful that Allah gave you firmness and steadfastness, to pray these two accounts and never be distracted by anything other than that, how are they better than the entire world and everything that's in it, and a hammer home Allah, they say,

00:35:21 --> 00:35:25

because the reward of these tools is permanent.

00:35:26 --> 00:35:31

It remains in your book of good deeds, and it follows you to your grief.

00:35:32 --> 00:35:47

And then it comes in, it's resurrected with you. And then it's placed on your scale until you're pushed into the paradise. Whereas this whole life, if it was given to you, it is only temporary. The day you die, it's all God.

00:35:48 --> 00:35:56

The day you die, everything you own is stripped away from you, your wallet, your watch,

00:35:57 --> 00:36:00

your phone, your cars, even your

00:36:02 --> 00:36:05

even your name, everything is stripped away from you.

00:36:07 --> 00:36:18

Rather than Allah, you will be surprised and amazed to know that if you are buried and had a golden tooth, it is your family

00:36:19 --> 00:36:27

that will dig the grave and pull the golden tooth out. And then they'll bury again even that you will not be taking with you.

00:36:30 --> 00:36:33

So how can the wealthy life be better than these tools

00:36:34 --> 00:36:36

when it is only temporarily in your hand.

00:36:38 --> 00:36:42

And these tools like art are going to stay and remain and they are permanent.

00:36:44 --> 00:36:45

Never miss these tools like

00:36:47 --> 00:36:54

the one who wants to prove to himself that the afterlife is his greatest concern. Then do not miss it.

00:36:55 --> 00:37:24

Even if you came to Salette and Fisher late and you pray and for first, you're allowed to get up and pray sooner after no prayer immediately after no problems. You can pray to sooner aka of the future after if you haven't prayed before, but don't make this a habit. Make the habit and the routine that you prayed before. But if you missed it for some reason, then make up for it immediately after alpha.

00:37:26 --> 00:37:37

This is better than the worldly life and everything in it imagined in the fall but kind of goodness and merit and reward and blessings and goodness is in selected fixture itself.

00:37:40 --> 00:37:45

As for the men after you pre select the Sunnah in your homes, had to and masjid

00:37:46 --> 00:38:29

and if you believe that praying sunnah at home, by the time you come to an masjid, they've already started technologically haram. Then come and pray a sunnah in a masjid. And that will be better for your case. Because catching Allahu Akbar for unfold, takes priority over all things. But if you have time to pray a sunnah at home, and then come to an masjid and follow the Imam from the very beginning of a solid for solid failure, then that would be the better option for you. And as for the woman, you'll select at home will earn you the exact same reward as a man that prays in congregation in the Masjid Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen

00:38:31 --> 00:38:33

Magana Tila hirato Hello.

00:38:34 --> 00:38:40

This is how you make the afterlife your greatest concern. Solid Phil Fisher on time

00:38:41 --> 00:38:54

Wallahi Allah He is a reality and it is a disaster. To know that a staggering number of Muslims do not pre select and Fisher during its time

00:38:56 --> 00:38:59

when $100 quarter in debonair, such a person

00:39:00 --> 00:39:01

he wakes up

00:39:02 --> 00:39:09

at seven 738 o'clock after the sun has risen. He's already started the day with a major sin.

00:39:11 --> 00:39:18

How is such a person serious that the afterlife is his greatest concern? When he started his day with a major sin.

00:39:20 --> 00:39:26

Don't ever believe for a moment that they hit on the pillow was a comfortable sleep.

00:39:27 --> 00:39:35

That temporary comfort you experienced in this world the life will become a discomfort in your grief.

00:39:36 --> 00:39:39

Lendon Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw a dream.

00:39:41 --> 00:39:59

And from among that which he saw, a person that was being smashed with a bolt on his head, and the ball that would draw and the head would be shattered into pieces. Then the head is brought back together. And then the Boulder is smashed onto his head once again.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:08

Adam Simon Buhari and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked the angels who is this person? What has he done?

00:40:09 --> 00:40:31

They said, for him, no we are hopeful for your football. We are now on a solid in October, two crimes he used to do. One, he did not take the grant serious in his life to he used to sleep straight through the voluntary the obligatory prayers, He is to neglect and abandon the obligatory prayers.

00:40:33 --> 00:40:35

Look at his situation in the grave now now too late.

00:40:37 --> 00:40:48

And it remains in this matter until the day of judgment. And on the Day of Judgment, Allahu Allah, his matter is with Allah azza wa jal might put yourself in a position like this. Men cannot

00:40:50 --> 00:41:00

enter your work to paradise. And you want to make the afterlife your greatest concern. Selected Fisher must be prayed on time every single day.

00:41:01 --> 00:41:13

If you miss Salatin Fisher once every six months, maybe Ben will grant us forgiveness, you still get up, remorseful, regretful, you ain't get over you crying on that day.

00:41:15 --> 00:41:19

But to pre selected Fajr on time once every six months.

00:41:20 --> 00:41:28

Heather is a disaster. It's a calamity. Upon law here a person is in deja Walla he is in danger.

00:41:31 --> 00:41:40

Making the afterlife your greatest concern recording yourself with my brothers and my sisters. It requires work. It requires focus.

00:41:43 --> 00:41:48

It requires for you to read and understand the seriousness of a deed

00:41:50 --> 00:41:55

and to understand your purpose in life. We only created to establish these warships.

00:41:56 --> 00:42:00

And what's the difference between a disbelief and a believer?

00:42:02 --> 00:42:08

This is why you need to be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the difference between us and them is the solid.

00:42:09 --> 00:42:12

Anyone who abandons for cover.

00:42:13 --> 00:42:14

He has disbelieved.

00:42:15 --> 00:42:24

Be very careful my brothers and sisters, wala change your entire load. Change your entire routine to make sure you get up for Salah and Fisher.

00:42:26 --> 00:42:34

And to pray it in general. There was a man that prayed the entire night during the PDF of Omar probably Allahu Anhu.

00:42:36 --> 00:42:40

Warmer probably Allah who and who did not notice him in the masjid that Fisher.

00:42:42 --> 00:42:58

So he said to his wife, where's your husband? I did not see him with us in salt and Fisher. She said well, he spent the night praying the voluntary prayer for her labor to Aina and his eyes got the better of him and he slept. Oh my god, the Allahu Anhu. He said,

00:42:59 --> 00:43:01

he said Wallah, he.

00:43:03 --> 00:43:46

He said la Ashada sala de sub A fisherman in a hub boo la Yemen and accumulate Latin. He says By Allah, it is more beloved to me, that I pray Salat, and fissure in congregation. That's more beloved than spending an entire night in voluntary prayer and then sleeping and not attending solid Fisher in Jemelle. Huge deal, a huge matter. A Muslim doesn't pre selected Fisher in Jana Walla he Wallahi during the life of the companions such a person has a B question mark on him. Labeled among the Sahaba as a Mona

00:43:50 --> 00:43:54

Heather, what is he preparing for the afterlife? Today is far away.

00:43:56 --> 00:44:04

In Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Enough Tala Salatin, Allah Buddha 15, Salah to refresh it, he was allowed to lay

00:44:06 --> 00:44:13

the heaviest prayers upon the hypocrite is solid and Fisher and he began with that and select the very shirt

00:44:14 --> 00:44:18

had the hypocrisy. The one who this is solid and frigid

00:44:21 --> 00:44:27

and a person is thrown into Costco if he abandons, and he neglects it altogether.

00:44:28 --> 00:44:31

This is by the word of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:44:32 --> 00:44:39

and at the same time, there are great virtues and great benefits for the one who prays him in congregation.

00:44:41 --> 00:44:43

In the be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said

00:44:46 --> 00:44:59

he says, but she didn't mushiya either. But she didn't know machine even if you follow me Elon Musk surgeon Binu return me omocha Yama congratulate those who walk in the darkness to unmastered with full and complete

00:45:00 --> 00:45:23

On the Day of Judgment shoe from the day where people will be struggling, walking on that sidewalk on that theme path that is sharper than a sword and thinner than a hay. And people are falling left and right. But the believer is solid and Fraser because it's a prayer that is prayed still in the dark, becomes a source of new light for him.

00:45:24 --> 00:45:44

Walking with clear vision, and no obstruction whatsoever. LoJack model Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says anyone who priests on Earth and Fisher in congregation fucka and Anima Sana Lena Kula he earns the reward of praying the entire night.

00:45:45 --> 00:46:07

The deceiver I began with him that to like Earth and if you're struggling with all of that, and was able to introduce this to your system and your routine, no problems, no facade, artificial colors deal and prayer to the masjid. You earn the reward as a vote you prayed the entire night, when in reality you're sleeping all night. How was

00:46:10 --> 00:46:22

the one who makes the afterlife? He's concerned and his care. Allah blesses him. Allah looks after him. Allah does not shortchanging there's goodness in whichever way you look at it more awkward.

00:46:24 --> 00:46:28

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said mankind hello to him more.

00:46:29 --> 00:46:34

Anyone who makes the afterlife his greatest concern. After solid refresher.

00:46:36 --> 00:46:42

You sit and you engage in of God after salah. And they are six or lucky they will not take more than three to four minutes from you.

00:46:43 --> 00:46:55

And the reward that's in them is immense. And after I've got after the prayer, you engage in the girl of the morning, and they will take about 15 to 20 minutes from your time.

00:46:57 --> 00:47:20

And they found in many apps, one of them is called vicar and this is an app that Hamdulillah that we worked on Likud and I'll give it to them at the end, downloaded, open, sit down, read aloud count each one will not walk so we'll be left better than the other in terms of the offers of reward and merit and greatness and blessings and mercy and forgiveness.

00:47:22 --> 00:47:28

One of them is to say you know hey Lamar, he cannot load call out hamdulillah Allah conditioning Kadir 100 times

00:47:29 --> 00:47:35

and as you repeat this word, you're sitting there repeating this word, you can sit in the masjid, you can walk out no problems, you repeat it.

00:47:36 --> 00:48:13

But you internalize and you feel that the entire world was created for this world to be fulfilled. The only reason the entire world was created, it was because of la ilaha illa Allah, mankind and jinn and the angels were created for La Ilaha illa Allah the paradise in the Hellfire were created for La ilaha illa the heavens and the earth were created for that, you know, halal Allah and everything that is in existence was created for their Illa Illa. And as you see it one time, two times, 10 times 20 times you know what that does? It softens to the heart to the point where you realize and what was I rushing to? Where are we going?

00:48:15 --> 00:48:23

What am I going, what am I rushing to? The water life is coming down Mitch coming, no problems. It's not running away.

00:48:24 --> 00:48:30

This entire world Life is worthless, pointless without this word.

00:48:32 --> 00:48:52

You see what that does? It now gives you a sense of reality that the afterlife is greater than the salty life. Because once you've realized that La Ilaha illa Allah is the greatest thing on earth. And tell me what kind of worldly concern would you have? Even even if you had a worldly concern we shattered and destroyed right then and there.

00:48:54 --> 00:49:07

Imagine someone has began his day like this. What's that in a span of 40 minutes 45 minutes and then you walk out what Allah huaxin will be let you walk out, tuned in the right frequency.

00:49:08 --> 00:49:12

You're in the right state of mind and heart and your soul is in the right direction.

00:49:14 --> 00:49:19

You have spent the last 40 minutes proving the afterlife is your greatest concern.

00:49:20 --> 00:49:21

Your walk out

00:49:23 --> 00:49:59

route really, truly, the afterlife is your greatest concern Wallah you can make this up. Wallah you cannot think it you will actually walk out feeling in your heart that the afterlife is my greatest concern and look this won't be life. Get ready for the prices that are coming number one and the visa Allahu Allah Salam says Jama Allah hula hula Shalom. Anyone who made the afterlife his greatest concern, Allah who would gather his affairs, Allah who will organize his affairs, Allahu Akbar, what a beautiful Grand gift and a prize especially

00:50:00 --> 00:50:17

During this day and age, in where people's affairs are all disorganized and thrown all over the place today you sit with someone said Armonico my brother, how are you? You see his eyes going all over the place rolling all over America. What's wrong on Lahiya me my family, my marriage, my children their future my home my debts, my taxes mine

00:50:18 --> 00:50:21

doesn't know where to start and where to begin with him.

00:50:22 --> 00:50:24

I'm not the one who started

00:50:25 --> 00:50:30

with that kind of morning at the what is he going to * of consult of op life?

00:50:32 --> 00:50:44

Allah has social will govern organize his affairs. He'll walk out of the doors of the masjid knowing exactly what he wants to achieve and do this very day. Not confused. That's the first price war.

00:50:47 --> 00:51:23

Second price, Allah azza wa jal, who will put wealth and richness within his heart. What does that mean? You know, there are some people, their wealth, their wealth, and their riches, in matters they possess, there are people their wealth is in a house they built, or in a car they purchased, or in a business they own. So the very moment that house is destroyed, or that car is destroyed, or that business ends and declines, he suffers emotionally, psychologically. Why?

00:51:24 --> 00:51:34

Because His richness and his wealth, and his worth was tied in materialistic matters. So when they are taken away,

00:51:35 --> 00:51:43

emotionally is disturbed psychologically, he's disturbed, then we have the stories of depression and suicide and anger and whatever it is,

00:51:44 --> 00:52:29

but to have the price and to have a reward, in which Allah places wealth and richness in your heart, and no one can remove it from you. That means that a person will definitely be satisfied with what Allah gives him of this whole life because he's richness is young, it's not in what's around him. Maybe he doesn't possess anything in this world the life but here he is content with what Allah has decreed for him. And that this is a prize Allah gives for the one who makes the afterlife is concerned. And it makes sense here because this person is concerned is the afterlife. Why is he going to lose sleep over something of the SWAMI life when he knows the reality of it is all doomed

00:52:29 --> 00:52:30

and destroyed.

00:52:32 --> 00:52:33

John arena who

00:52:36 --> 00:53:22

will attend to dunya Hallo Hema, and that's the third price. And this worldly will be life will come to him on its nose. Yanni Allah solution will give him extra and bonus of this whole life, not just what was decreed for him, but there will be prizes and extra gifts and mercy and blessings from Allah Allah. The one who sits with people that have experienced this matter will tell you stories and stories of what Allah has blessed them in their life from Annecy unexpected paths as a reward for making the afterlife your greatest concern at the two dunya Hema Why does the world come forcefully on its news? Because the believer doesn't want it nor does he seek it. So Allah azza wa

00:53:22 --> 00:53:41

jal brings it to him by force, law, Kabbalah and the conclusion of that hadith and the be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives us contrary to this person, woman can at the dunya hum Moo hoo, and anyone who made this will be life is concerned. How do you make the Walby life your concern? skip all of that what we mentioned

00:53:43 --> 00:53:46

put the alarm at eight o'clock or 730 in the morning.

00:53:47 --> 00:53:49

Purposely missing Salette and Fisher.

00:53:50 --> 00:54:19

Whoever this person is what the life is is concerned. What happens to him in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says that Allahu Allahu Allah azza wa jal will disrupt his affairs and disorganized his matters. Whether he wakes up on a major sin, and he's confused and perhaps he starts the day with a lie. Paula, Brother, I am late I'm coming up on the way in this traffic. Well, there's a big accident ahead of me. He starts the day with a line. No, no, look what happened. Shut that Allahu Shimla who

00:54:21 --> 00:54:41

was yeah and facula who Bina IE? Allah azza wa jal will please poverty right between his eyes. What does that mean? It means no matter what he ran and sought after in this whole life, he will always feel discontent. He will always feel poor. He's never satisfied with what has

00:54:42 --> 00:54:59

what I mean to him in a dunya Elana could do Allah, and nothing extra to accompany him except what Allah has decreed for him. Whatever your wrist is, don't worry, that's guaranteed that's going to come as an abuse Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, if you were to run away from your knees, in the same manner

00:55:00 --> 00:55:15

You run away from death then your provision will come to you in the same manner dif will come to bus nothing else nothing special nothing extra hot. Why land of all the life was his greatest concern what our whole our whole water level there.

00:55:16 --> 00:56:01

So my brothers and sisters in Islam I think the Hobbit is very clear. The route to Allah azza wa jal is very clear, the path of goodness. The path of the afterlife is very clear. Anyone that is serious concerning his relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala knows exactly the direction in where he's supposed to be heading. We ask Allah subhanahu wata, Isla, to instill within our hearts the reality of the afterlife and to meet the afterlife our greatest concern, we ask him SubhanaHu wa ala that he allow us to worship Him in a manner that is pleasing to Him. We ask him Subhanahu wa Taala that he except from a soul and he admits into the highest levels of the paradise man maybe you know so the

00:56:01 --> 00:56:31

Latino shahada it was solid him what has to not let it go raffia and I leave you with one Hadith. And this is the final Hadith I share with you in the V sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says Manjaro and who Muhammad Anwar Haider humbled me I had Kapha hola who humble dunya anyone who makes all his concerns one concern and that is the concern of the afterlife. You see every single concern you have

00:56:32 --> 00:56:45

is a worthless concern. The only healthy concern and worry is the concern and the worry of the afterlife. Whoever made his greatest concern, the concern of the afterlife.

00:56:46 --> 00:57:17

Allah azza wa jal will suffice him from all his worldly concerns. You and you have a concern of health and wealth and shelter and clothing and rent and school and whatever it is Allah azza wa jal will make a way out for you in these matters. And then in the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, Woman to Shabbat, we Hill who moved and anyone who had multiple concerns and made them priority in his life over the concern of the afterlife.

00:57:19 --> 00:57:44

Let me you barely feel a Oh deity he Haluk Allah whom Okay, which of these concerns ends your life? Allah does not care. Because ultimately one of these concerns is going to bring your heart to a stop and it's going to end your life. We ask Allah azza wa jal to save us from that. Allahu Allah or SallAllahu wasallam albaraka LNAV you know, Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germaine
