Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah earlier he was so happy he was mine my brothers and sisters in Islam just moments ago, we finished solid Kosuth the Eclipse pray. And this is a sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that whenever there's a solar eclipse or a lunar eclipse that we rush to select, and the eclipse is no doubt a sign of the hour. Allah subhanahu wa taala he says in the SATA at the tune Academy fear Allah azza wa jal in Seoul of Baja. He says that the hour is fast approaching at attune, it's coming. The Day of Judgment is coming. A Seraph is coming. atomism the skill is coming. The Hellfire is coming. The Paradise is coming. And

00:00:53--> 00:01:42

all the events of the day of judgment are coming. Then Allah azza wa jal said a caribou or fear. I'm almost keeping the hour hidden. What that means is that I will show you signs, but the knowledge of the Hour is hidden. But I'll show you signs and no doubt the solar eclipse that we witnessed moments ago, is one of the minor signs of the hour. And this is why Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rushed to pre the Eclipse prayer when the Eclipse happened, because who knows? It could have been the Day of Judgment. And he wanted to meet Allah azza wa jal while he was in a solid, my brothers and sisters in Islam, Allah azza wa jal when he describes the scene about the sun, and what would happen

00:01:42--> 00:02:26

to it on the last day of earth, He says, for either a barrier colossal, all of a sudden, in the eyes of mankind bury colossal, when the eyes of people become confused, on the last day of Earth, people sight becomes confused. People are looking left and right of them and aware of what is happening to the universe and what is happening to the earth. The stars are falling, the moon and the sun are losing their light. The ocean is set on fire. The sky is torn in half, but it colossal people's eyes is going left and right they are confused as what at what they are seeing. Allah azza wa jal says, What has often come up and the moon there is an eclipse that happens to the moon, meaning that the

00:02:26--> 00:03:13

moon loses its light was umiya Shamsul will come up, and a shrimps, the sun. And they both collide with each other. They gather, they join, they collide with each other, and they lose their light. And that's the end of them. So no doubt, the solar eclipse that was witnessed moments ago, this is a sign of the hour. This is a sign for mankind to know that the Promise of Allah is real, that Trump's Promise of Allah is absolute truth, and that the hour is on its way. When the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam. When he saw the clips that happened in El Medina, total darkness took place. He gathered the companions and he prayed to like and after a solid, he encouraged he gave a hope, and encourage the

00:03:13--> 00:03:57

companions to make that could be to say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, to seek is still hard to sit still for Allah Stouffville Allah. He also commanded them to give sadaqa and he commanded them to engage in a thicket. He also commanded them to seek Allah's forgiveness and Allah's protection from the punishment of the hellfire and the punishment of the grief. And he also commanded them to go and free slaves and to give Salah cod and to make dua. Why? Because the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was worried that these moments might be the last moments on Earth. And so he wanted his companions to die upon goodness, to meet Allah upon goodness. And so what we are learning is that the best

00:03:57--> 00:04:42

thing a believer could do, the best matter a believer could be engaged in, in the last moments of his life before he meets Allah azza wa jal is worship is good deeds, even if it was miserable, minimal, as long as a person remains consistent upon this. This is what we're learning. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, from the clips that took place, we are learning that the best way to be prepared to meet Allah azza wa jal is with good deeds is with good deeds, no matter how minimal it is, as long as you'll remain consistent upon the good deed my brothers and sisters in Islam, that is a very important lesson. And one final reflection we can make. And that is that when the sun when

00:04:42--> 00:04:45

there was an eclipse during the life of a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:04:47--> 00:04:52

The people began to speak, they began to talk and they said that the sun

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

has all that the Eclipse has taken place, because the sun of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ebro

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

him has passed away Subhan Allah and this look what happened here, and the V sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he heard this, he came out to the people, and he said to them in the shumsa will come over a tournament at Les, les and hasI finally, molti AHA didn't want le HYAH T. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the sun and the moon, they are two signs of the signs of Allah subhanahu wata Allah. They do not Eclipse

00:05:31--> 00:05:33

for the death or the life of anyone.

00:05:35--> 00:05:35

They don't.

00:05:37--> 00:06:20

So then he said, If you see the clips, then rushed to the prayer. And what we learned from this is something incredible. And that is, we are learning the authenticity of the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is indeed the final prophet of Allah. Why? Because of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could have remained quiet, and could have went along with the people and said, Yes, true. The sun has eclipsed because of the death of my son. You see, that's why I'm a prophet of Allah. He could have taken it to his advantage and did this. However, he's an honest and a truthful messenger. He came to the people, and he said to them, no, the Eclipse isn't because of the death of

00:06:20--> 00:07:00

my son. The eclipse, the sun and the moon are signs of Allah subhanho wa taala. They belong to Allah azza wa jal. And the Eclipse doesn't happen for the death of someone or the life of someone. Rather, the assigns in which Allah azza wa jal terrifies the servants with them so that they can turn to Him. And that's why in the view, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if you do see the clips, then rushed to a solid and rushed to the many forms of goods that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us, we ask Allah azza wa jal to instill within us a sense of fearing him. subhanho wa Taala and we ask Allah azza wa jal to accept our deeds and to make us among the righteous believers it normally
