And you know of course you know that a believer is supposed to put as much effort as he can during these 10 nights in the worship of Allah azza wa jal and there is nothing that encourages a person to remain committed upon Islam and upon the worship of Allah, more than dimension and the remembrance of death.

00:00:43--> 00:01:23

three things that follow a person when he dies, they follow him to his grave about may eat a salad, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, No who woman who wanna know who, his family, his family, his friends, they all come and they follow the debt. And we just buried someone dead. And we saw his family and everyone following him when they knew who and his wealth follows him as well.
