every day my brothers and sisters, more than 150,000 people die,
6420 People die, every minute 107 People die and every three seconds, five people die. Next could be you or me.
Life is short and temporarily and the only chance to invest for the hereafter.
The topic of my talk is the last chance
we the human beings we are living in this world with the perception that we belong to this world
with the perception that we will be your forever
but the fact of the matter is, we do not belong to this world.
We are here for a temporary purpose.
But an amazing thing. Amazing situation. The way we prepare for this dunya is as if it is never going to end and the preparation
for the hereafter, is as if it is never going to come. Life is uncertain. We never know when is our time the Muslims and are not yet Muslims, the atheists and agnostics every one is certain about one thing and that is debt.
It is an undeniable fact, the reality and the fact that no matter who you are, no matter where you are, no matter whether you are a millionaire, or a billionaire, debt will overtake you.
Allah Almighty says in the Quran in surah Al Imran surah number three is number 185.
Though it will mode, every soul shall taste, debt.
Debt my brothers and sisters,
it comes unannounced, uninvited, unexpected all of a sudden, and disconnects you from all the things from all the beloved ones, have you ever imagined.
Picture this imagination, picture this imagination my brothers and sisters,
that when you die,
when you die, what will be the situation? What will be the situation, your own beloved ones would be crying would be weeping at one side and the others would be preparing for your funeral. Some might be digging the grave, some might be boiling the water some might be buying your coffin, we do not take we do not take our bank balances with us after we die, we do not take our Bangalow we do not take our position or property. The only portion from this dunya from this world we will take as the coffin Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. He said
debt is the destroyer of pleasures Wallahi by Allah how true this is. Debt is the destroyer of pleasures. My brothers and sisters, the moment we die, we will leave us behind. We will leave behind every best thing that we used to have the best of the cars that we used to drive the best of the food that we used to eat the best on the clothes that we used to wear the best of the positions that you used to possess the best of the places that we used to live, we will leave everything because debt is the destroyer of pleasures.
My brothers and sisters.
The question is,
are we prepared for this? If debt has to come to us now, if debt has to come now, are we prepared? Because the preparations the preparations of the Hereafter has to be done in this world. The preparation of the Hereafter cannot be done in the hereafter. It has to be done in this world. This is our last chance and the only chance to prepare to invest for the year after.
My brothers and sisters in this world. We have only actions no accounts, but in the hereafter. There is only accounts no actions. Allah Almighty says in Surah says da surah number 32 and number 12. Allah Almighty says about those people
the people would say Our Lord Rabbana or Lord, we have seen we have heard, so return us to the world so that we may be righteous. Indeed we now know the truth with certainty. But no chance will be given to us because we
We have enough opportunities. Allah Almighty is providing us endless opportunities to come back to Allah.
My brothers and sisters,
now let us know, why do we need to talk? Why do we need to remind ourselves from the last chance? Allah says in the Quran in surah Miriam surah number 19 I number 39. Allah Almighty says we're on their home and warn them have the day of regret of the day of grieve. When the matters will be settled,
your judgment will be passed.
yet they are in the state of carelessness, and they do not believe
my brothers and sisters, Allah Almighty says
warn them. Why? Why this warning? Two reasons. Number one, it is a part of Allah's mercy, that he is warning us he is reminding us he is alarming us he is cautioning us, so that we may reflect number two.
Number two reason of the warning. If they are not warned, we will never come back. We will never come out of the state
of carelessness, we will never come back from the state of carelessness. If we are not worn like in the state. Like in the example of a student the student is being worn is being cautioned he has been alarmed by his teacher,
my student prepare now otherwise you will regret you will fail. And this is a warning. If this warning is not given to the student, he will not come out of that carelessness. He will continue to be in the state of carelessness and therefore Allah is giving us a warning. If we do not care for this warning now, if you do not show our care of that day now, if you don't heed the warning of that day, now, we will be lost.
My dear brothers and sisters
what will be the day of regret? And what is the result of this carelessness? What is the consequence of this carelessness?
By Allah? If we show or if we are in the state of carelessness, and if we don't come back to Allah it will lead us to the Vorst Place prepared by Allah hellfire.
Have you ever imagined
what will be the hellfire?
Did it take your mind? Have you have you remind yourselves about the Hellfire it is called as the name the blazing Fire.
It is called as Jahannam because of the depth of its pet, it is called as Lazar.
Because of its flames, it is called as I'll save because it kindred
it is called as a sucker
which means the intensity of heat it is called as her Tama
because it breaks and crushes the things that comes in it. It is called as and how we are
because the one who is thrown into it will be thrown from top to bottom. That is the worst place. Allah reminds us in the Quran, in so many places, as a reminder about the situation of the people who do not show care of that day, the day of regret the day of your after. My brothers, Allah Almighty says in Surah Menon surah number 23 I number 9900 about the person the person would say, My Lord, send us back to this word so that we may do God which we use to neglect.
Name Allah says it's just the words that they are tall
and if it were it will be set to them. It will be set to them. They didn't our IR to reach to you didn't our message reached you how
You're not recited, have you not listened to it and denied and it will be said, the cry of those people who will show carelessness and regret on that day, they will say Robina or Lord Krishna Minh Ha, take us out, remove us from it from the hellfire.
And if he were to do wrong and evil, we would be among those who are evil towards who are wrongdoers. Allah continues in Surah Furqan surah number 25 is number 27. The wrongdoers on the day of regret will bite their hands out of regret, and would say ah, I wish I had follow the path of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my brothers and sisters, when we know the result of this consequence, when we know the outcome of this carelessness, what is that which is deluding us? What is that which is deceiving us? It is none other than this dunya this world,
the engagement of this world, the attachment of this world, the love of dunya dunya the love of this dunya has deceived us,
by all means are not saying abandoned dunya abandon this wall cut off from your relations
do not work or do not do businesses. No, that's not what I'm saying. What I'm saying is, if you do all this at the cost of losing your hereafter, then we will be lost. You see, we have failed to realize the usage of this place or dunya. called this world, the usage of this world is that it should become the means to achieve your chakra, your hereafter successful are those who make this dunya as a means to achieve our Hera the hereafter wise are those who invest
who invest on their parents as a means to achieve the hereafter.
Intelligent or those who make the children as a means to achieve aka and smart are those who invest their wealth as a means to achieve the hereafter.
But our condition is otherwise our condition is otherwise we are busy. We are busy in our own dunya in the world, we are busy in caring our relations. We are busy in making the world in building buildings in all the matters of dunya. And Allah describes Allah describes the situation, our situation in the Quran in surah, Taka Surah Surah number 102. And number one, Allah Almighty says Allah
they are busy, we are busy and in raise to desire
more than we require. We are in race. We are in race to have something
which is more than what we require. On the top of it. We are also playing the spirit of competition.
We are in race with the spirit of competition in the matters of this world. If you have the by BMW, if you have the BMW five series, I should better have seven cities. If you have three bedroom of Bangalore I should better have five bedroom of bungalow. We are busy my brothers and sisters in making dunya and we are competing with each other in the matters of this world.
Allah Almighty, He says in the Quran in surah Hadid surah number 57 is number 20. As a reminder, Allah says I know that this world is playing an amusement diversion. It is an adornment and a place of competition to increase in your world. So we're busy. We are busy. Allah says in surah Kahf surah number 18 I number 46. I'll Moll one
By noon Xena to the hieratic dunya your wealth, your children are the adornment of this world.
And what will remain with you is the good deeds.
My dear brothers and sisters, it's an amazing situation that we are in raise for this dunya. So much so that and Allah says how long, how long we'll be in raised, how far we will be in raised hectares or tomorrow
until you reach the grave, meaning until we die,
nothing can shut us up. If he had the value of God, we want another one, although we might not use it, but the desire to have more and on the top of it competition, and on the top of it the boasting, I have this I have died in the matters of dunya. In the matters of this wall. Allah says hectares no tamale macabre, until you reach the grave. You will be in this race.
My dear brothers and sisters,
Allah Almighty is giving us chances after chances. This is a reminder for all of us, to come back to Allah Almighty.
So what should be what should be the solution how we should be prepared? There is a beautiful Hadith of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, which summarizes what and how we should use this last chance this life as the last chance.
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him says, On the Day of Judgment, the feet of the Adam will not move. Unless he is asked five things, five questions we all will be standing before Allah.
And we'll have to answer five questions, we'll have to answer Allah, there will be no escape.
There will be no exit, Devil no exit, there will be no Google for your information. There will be no WhatsApp, there is no phone a friend, you and me will be standing alone
before Allah and will be asked five things, five questions. If we utilize these five things. Now.
We would be successful in Shawn. And what are these five things? Number one, Allah Almighty is going to ask you and me how did you spend your life? Number two, how did you spend your youth? Number three, how did you own? Number four? How do you spend? Number five, the knowledge that you have? How did you apply it in your lives? Let's analyze these questions. Very powerful questions. How? What have you done with your life? As this question to yourself, my brothers and sisters, now, what have you done in your life? Is our life chasing just the dunya? Or are we saving and investing something for the hereafter? Because I said, as I said, the preparation, the investment, then the efforts that
we have to make for the hereafter is in this dunya in this world. If you lose it, we lose it forever.
This is the last chance. So what have you done with this life? You see Allah Almighty, He has shown us our approach towards the life How should be our approach towards this beautiful namah beautiful blessing of life. Allah Almighty says in Surah Mulk surah number 67 I in number two, Allah the halal moto will hire Talia Blue Welcome. Or you can ask Allah and we have given the life and death so that we may test you who is in Best of conduct.
So the approach towards life is that it is a test and it is a test for what the purpose of this test the purpose of your own mind state in this world, the purpose of your own mind traveling in this world as Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said that we in this world as if you're a traveler, what is the purpose in the short time that you and me are having in this world and
Law says in Surah, Zarya, Surah number 51. Eye number 56 wama Calico Jana well INSA Illallah Abu Dune, we have not created, Allah says I have not created the jinn and the mankind except that they may serve me. And serving Allah in all aspects gives the meaning of the worship to Allah Almighty anything and everything that you and me do in the slice, make sure that it is linked with your sole objective to please Allah. Because Allah says in surah an arm surah number six I number 162 all say to them in most certainly Salah T one oh Sookie wah wah Ma Ma T Lillahi Rabbil aalameen, my prayer, my sacrifice my living my dying for Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, your life is valuable. It's
precious value eight now before you lose it because this life is the last chance so Allah is going to ask us what have you done with your life? This is the first question. The second question is how did you spend your youth. You see youth is the best portion of our life. It is the most productive phase of our life
wherein we invest.
Rightly, we will be guided. If you lose this phase, we will regret in the old age because we have the best of energies with us. We have the time the valuable time with us. We have the resources with us. These all are the investments, catch yourself. Be conscious, be conscious. And make sure make sure that you deliver the best of your body of Allah in your age in the youth. Make sure that you deliver the best of Salah in this time in this age. Make sure that you make the best of the treatment to your parents in this age. Make sure that you deliver the best of manners to the mankind. Make sure my brothers and sisters make sure that in this age, you invest your time. Being
conscious to Allah, you invest your time in making something productive for the Amarillo head for the matters of God. Make sure that you invest your skills
in promoting the beautiful message of Islam. Yet my brothers and sisters is one of the beautiful phase of life. You might not be able, you might not be able to bow down in your old age bow down now. You might not be able to prostrate to Allah and do sujood do it now. You might not you might not be physically fit in doing the worship of Allah do it now. You might not be able to strive to make this world the better world, the peaceful world do it now. This is your age. This is your investment. This is your energy that needs to be optimally utilized because this is your last chance. Be conscious of your youth and be conscious of your body. Be conscious of your eyes. Ask
yourself what your eyes are seeing. Is it busy in watching something unlawful? Or is it busy reading the Quran? Is your ears, your ears?
Are they busy? eliciting something haram something wrong, something unlawful and illegal,
something prohibited? Or is it busy in listening to the kalam of Allah Al Quran?
What about your heart?
Is your heart enticed, attached
with this world or it has the remembrance of Allah. Allah says
indeed, the hearts find rest in the vicar of Allah in the remembrance of Allah.
My dear brothers and sisters, this is your
Don't wait for tomorrow invest your youth now. So this is the second question. The third question how did you own
for us we have the whole world open. You choose what you want, but the believer is conscious in finding his sources which are halal, which are pure and permissible. And he does everything to
On in the pure and permissible ways, be conscious. The whole world is yours. Choose the direction, choose the sources of earning, which is permissible. This is your last chance. And the fourth question is, how did you spend? This is a big question. You see most of us and hamdulillah are one off.
Allah will ask us on the Day of Judgment, where did you spend
the well the money, the amount that you have? You were the agent. What did you do with that?
Did we spend extravagantly and became the brothers of shaitan? As Allah says in surah, Bani Israel surah number 17. Number 27. Or are we the ones who are the most hated to Allah is Allah says in Surah Surah number seven, eye number 31, in which Allah subhanaw taala says in Allah law you must reveal. Allah says in Allah now you're able, most revealing. Allah does not love those who spend extravagantly. Be conscious when you're spending, Allah says in Surah Furqan that believers are those who do not spend extravagantly. Neither they are miser, they follow the mirror. We are the bottled water. We are the balanced Omagh of Rasulullah sallallahu Renson. So watch and be conscious.
Where are you spending? Be wise, it's an amazing and painful situation where the millions of people, children, women, men are dying every day with no food. On the other side, we see tons of food being wasted. Where are we spending? Be conscious my brothers and sisters now because we will be asked about our spending. The last question, the prominent question is
the knowledge that you have, how did you apply it in your lives? Now we know we have a problem that most of us, we don't see much of knowledge, that's the problem. But the bigger problem is the knowledge that we have, we don't apply it in our lives. The scholars have said, knowledge will not those learners are those only who act.
Actions are the fruits of knowledge. There is no action without knowledge, not the knowledge that you and me have. Whatever it is, Allah will ask us on the Day of Judgment. How did you apply your knowledge?
We all know Allah Almighty is the greatest, greatest in everything, greatest in worship, greatest love, greatest in servitude, and and everything.
And when we get the matters where we have to please Allah, or we have to please the people or the things. Whom are we choosing? We're choosing this one.
Allah will ask us, you know that Allah Almighty is the greatest, we know that but are we applying it similarly? Allah the Creator of the heavens and earth, He has set for you and me, our beloved Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the best example. Allah says in the Quran lapper the cannula confy Rasulillah. He will sweat on Hashanah. The best example for you and me in this life is the example of Muhammad peace be upon him.
Are we emulating are we copying are the following Avi obeying the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, if not time is now.
Allah will ask us you know it. You used to read as Hadwen named Mohammad Rasool Allah, I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, have you applied it in your lives? Allah is gonna question us about the Quran, the value of the Quran. Unfortunately, we have made the Quran as merely the book of Baraka, although it is no doubt about it. But there is much more beyond that Quran has to offer.
We know that the Quran is the criteria in the judging manual. It is a decree from Allah. It is a book of Allah, it is a guidance of Allah for every issue for every matter that you and me have. Allah is providing the solution for that. Are we applying it? Allah is gonna question us. We know about the Quran we respected, we adore it. Allah will ask us
the knowledge that we have, have you applied it? We will
Hello my brothers and sisters, hell is horrible. is no joke. Hell is no joke.
Hey, is no joke. Allah will ask us You knew it. You knew the hell is no joke. Have you worked to protect yourself from it? We know Jana is the best and bold, the best place to live and forever. Allah will ask us you knew about it, have you worked to achieve it? Have you worked your best to achieve it? Allah will ask us the question your parents when they are old. They did everything best to make you best now
are you treating them in the best way now?
Allah will ask us for every bit of knowledge that you only have on the Day of Judgment. Mind you, brothers and sisters.
Use your life before you lose your life. Use your time before you lose your time. Use your belt before you lose your belt. Use your youth before you lose it. Use your Tober you repentance. The time is now my brothers and sisters. The time is now come back to Allah nag Allah. Allah says fulfill ruin Allah conduct to Allah rush towards Allah. The time is now.
My dear brothers and sisters
yesterday has gone tomorrow is not yours, your time. Your chance is now the last chance and would like to end my talk with an iron with which I began my talk from Surah Ali Imran surah number three is number 185 in which Allah Almighty speaks about the reality, the truth, the fact Allah says Allah Homina shaytani R rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Kullu nursing the opportune moment? Why nama to a PHONER or Judah come? Yama Yama. farmans Xian dinar, whoa, John janitor. The Fars woman hire to dunya Illa Mata.
Every soul shall taste debt.
The Creator is saying this and we know about it, every soul you and me, everyone shall taste deaths. And on the Day of Judgment, we should have the recompense in full everyone will be paid back in full
and those who will be removed from the fire and admitted into Janna, they will achieve success so called the Fars they will achieve success. Woman higher to dunya Illa Mata
and they love the life of this world. The life of this world is the enjoyment of deception while you do the Awana Anil hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen.
Dakka Dakka brother Ahmed Hamid for your inspiring talk. We ask Allah azza wa jal to grant us Jana and keep us far, far away from jahannam. From the Hellfire
inshallah we come to the question and answer session. And I'd like to quickly announce the guidelines for the question and answer session.
We have three mics here on the floor. One mic.
Here on my left, the first mic from the brothers, we have the second mic from the brothers again. And we have one mic from the sisters. We will take a sequence one from the brothers and one from the sisters. And that sequence will follow for two rounds of question and answer session.
I request the questioner to keep your question brief and on the topic. And I also request the questioners to announce their name and their occupations that is easy for us, for the speaker to answer to your question in your perspective.
I request you to
make sure that
if there is any non Muslims that we would like to give them the first preference of asking a question, I request the volunteers at the mics to kindly make the adjustments prior so that we don't have to waste time on that.
We should now begin
With the first question from the brothers from Mike number one on my left,
Echo, my name is Faisal. I'm from Abu Dhabi. Very inspiring, inspiring speech, brother. That is inevitable nobody can escape. You have quoted some reference from the Quran. Whenever I come across is cool enough says I Zagato mode. My heart trembles really, what have you prepared to face Allah? My question is, is this written in the pre pre written or it is rewritten every year? Because some of the Hadith says that every year that you are dead this return is a true I bet confused about the natural disasters, sometimes hundreds millions of people die at one shot, is it greater?
Or it is in the the? This is my clarifying question. Thank you.
Smilla Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah.
The brother has asked the question, that is our dead return or it is written at once. Allah Almighty, Allah subhanho wa taala. He has written everything, whatever is going to happen in this world more than 50,000 years before the creation of this world. So everything in the knowledge of Allah is written. Allah knows, when the person is going to die. Allah knows the place, Allah knows the situation. It is when it is we who are told to ask Allah Almighty to ask Allah Almighty that Allah give us the best debt,
help us to prepare for the debt and make us among those who will die with ease. But this matter is absolutely written by Allah subhanaw taala and every time every time the scholars have mentioned, every time we need to renew, renew, revive our fate by thinking the next moment it could be hours, regardless whether it is written first time or not. It is written every year or not. Regardless of that, my dear brothers and sisters, the scholars have emphasized from the authentic teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah, that every time we need to remember as the scholars say wiser those who remember that and prepare for it. So, regardless of that situation, we need to make sure that it is
going to come for sure and it is going to come any moment, any time any situation any place but this is certain that it is going to come so we need to prepare now. Hope that answers your question.
First and Last chance. This is the last chance we'll take the next question from the sister side
we have a sister and she wants to take shahada Michelle.
Prophet Muhammad peace be born in my brothers and sisters he used to be concerned and very about each
every one of us that he could help each one of us to save from the fire Hamdulillah we have one more sister of ours who would like to enter in the dino fitrah in the natural Belgian sister see can repeat after me inshallah.
Yes, eyeshadow, eyeshadow, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah. Allah Allah wash her Do ye shadow Anana anna muhammadan Muhammadan rasul Allah rasool Allah, I bear witness, I bear witness that, that there is no deity, there is no sanity, worthy of worship, worthy force, worthy of worship, worthy of worship, except Allah exept Allah, and I bear witness, and I bear witness that Muhammad, that Muhammad peace be upon him. peace be upon him, is his messenger, and is his mess.
Sanjay, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
Desikan will take the next question from Mike number two from the brothers,
a stone Aegon, my name is Mormon person. And my qualification is masters. I would like to ask Mr ama the question that
at the start of his discussion, he mentioned that death is a means destroyer of player. So, if I am a Muslim, what will be the player for me, if player is meaning of car, house and these things, then this is not play for me. And if player is peace for me, then whole death will destroy my player.
the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is that debt is the destroyer of pleasures emend the pleasures of this world, you see, we are all so much enthused and ties and excited, because of the love of the things or the love of the people, our own beloved people. So, the debt, the moment it comes, it will disassociate you, it will defuse you, it will disconnects you from all the pleasurable things that you used to have, and all the pleasurable ones, the beloved ones, the beauty of your wife, the love of your mother, the love of your father, the love of your children, all the beloved things and and the people, it will disconnect you. So as a Muslim,
as a Muslim, we should be pleased. When the dark comes, you know why?
And the time the last moments of Muhammad peace be upon him, because the prophets, they were given the announcement, before deaths.
The prophet the angel of death, they used to take permission from the end from the prophets. So when it was told to Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, he used an analogy and said to his Sahaba, his companions, the slave, the slave has given two choices, two options.
First, to be in this world,
or to be in the Hereafter.
And the slave has chosen Allah.
The slave has chosen Allah, why the believers who believe in Allah are not scared of death because they always prepare for that. You and me if you're prepared to please Allah, if we are prepared before death, if we are prepared now, we will be happy to surrender ourselves, we would be happy to die now. Why? Because we are promised the ultimate treasure that is stored for the believer in the hereafter. As Allah says warmer, higher to dunya in
the life of this world is the enjoyment of deception. So most of us, we are deceived in these pleasures. So this is how it disconnects you hope that answers your question shall the next question from the sisters
we have a sister to take the shahada Allahu Akbar

Wallahi brothers value Islam now look at the sisters look at the brothers who are coming into Islam. They understand the beauty the price of Islam
we ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep all of us form on his fate, inshallah.
We'll take the last round of questions the session for this particular one and I'll take the last question from the brothers. And then a question from the sisters to end this QA session for this
She has a potion, I'm the branch manager of one of the exchange companies. Michael sneeze. Can you please
give us a few tips on increasing our faith so that we realize this life is Last Chance.
But there has asked a question, a very significant question. What are those few tips or the pieces of advice that our scholars have given in order that we may keep our faith our Imam intact in a manner that we may react and reflect now for the last chance? Brother, Abdul Karim, one of the great scholars of Islam, he said many things he said about at least 10 things that can empower our faith that can empower our airmen that can keep us steadfast that can keep us form. Some of the things are number one, reciting and reflecting upon the Quran.
In reality, why are we away from Allah is because we are away in a real sense, in a practical sense from the kalam of Allah from the Quran. From the Quran, as I mentioned, we have made for honors just merely the book of burqa,
and one of the significant tools or the way that can keep us intact and remind us keep us reminded about the last chance is reflection upon the Quran.
We need to read it, understand it, practice it, promoted judge by it, if you do not all do all these things, as he says
giving the explanation of Surah Furqan surah number 25 ayah number 30 in which the Messenger of Allah will Allah when I read when I hear when I listen to this, I have the Quran my heart trembles you know why? The Nabhi of Allah Our and your our Habib Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would complain about those people who had neglected the Quran. Allah says in the Quran recorded this complain of Rasulullah instead of Furqan surah number 25 ayah number 30 in which Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, what Allah rasuluh Yara be and on that day, the Messenger of Allah would say, in Almita hoo ha the Quran Allah Maha Juraj more certainly, oh my lord, my people my ummah, my own
nation, they have migrated from the Quran. They have gone away from the Quran and this is the cause of our lack of reminder about the last chance.
If we do not listen, read, believe practice, remember, memorize, promote and judge the Quran. We are as if migrating from the Quran. So the first thing is attached to the Quran, be the companion of the Quran and that will keep you reminded about the last chance. The second thing is reflect upon the names of Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty has given all these names. Ask Allah with all these names, ask Allah as the word Ottawa, the One Who accepts repentance, forgive us as and how far the one who forgives, ask Allah, repent, repent, reflect upon the names and attributes of Allah, the more and more you know Allah, you will be reminded of Allah and the more you are reminded of Allah, you will
be get closer to Allah and you will become the Beloved of Allah and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Allah Almighty, listen to this, mark these words, Allah Almighty, He will never throw a person in
and fire whom he loves. So be the Beloved of Allah by reflecting upon the names of Allah. Also another way is whenever there are there are two matters in front of you, one to please Allah and two is to please the people or the situation or the things, please Allah give priority to Allah. Another way is that been the company of those who care for the hereafter, who reminds you about the hereafter not of those who are in the desire to have more, not of those who compete with each other in the matters of dunya not about those who boast themselves in the matters of the world.
And keep yourself with these kinds of people. Inshallah, Allah subhanaw taala will help us all in terms of utilizing this as the last chance, we hope. And we pray to Allah Almighty to give us the guidance help us help us to be the one who utilizes this life as the last chance hope that answers your question.
The next question or the last question from the sister said.
Go ahead, we can hear you gonna have us some question I'm born Muslim in the morning.
Life is so short. So how can we use the time we have to do good
in the end of your life?
Write two beautiful question. It's a beautiful question how we can use our time and when when our life is so short. As I've mentioned all these things in the talk and the q&a. In addition to that, first of all, we do not know where is the finishing line when is the ending time we do not know. So the preparation should begin. Now number one, number two, we should make sure that we invest our time in the matters of God for example, for example, if you have parents, if you have parents, make sure that you please and treat them in the best of the manners so that Allah will be pleased by you, as Allah says, in Surah, Bani Israel Surah, number 17. And number 23, that it is decreed. It is
decreed that you worship none except ALLAH, and that you be kind to your parents. In this short life, we need to fulfill two types of rights or two rights my brothers and sisters, number one, the rights of Allah. And number two, the rights of the creation. In the short time, we need to start preparation and investment for doing and fulfilling these two rights, the rights of the creator and the first right of the Creator is do not associate anyone, anything with ALLAH until you die, be the worshipper always.
Until we die, as Allah says, in Surah Surah number 15. And number 99. Why?
Rebecca Yachty aka your king, worship your Lord, until certainty comes to you. Certainty refers your to death. So keep worshiping Allah.
Keep worshiping Allah by utilizing investing your time. And by all means, when I say worshipping Allah there is direct worship to Allah and anything and everything that pleases Allah is a worship to Allah. Secondly, the rights of the creation, the rights of your parents, the rights of your children, the rights of your husband or wives, the rights of your neighbors, the rights of the orphans, the rights of your relatives, friends, and the whole world.
This is how insha Allah if we invest our time without without expecting anything, as a deadline, but with a complete consciousness that it could end anytime with this conscious mind. If we work now inshallah. Allah Almighty will help us in the hereafter. Hope that answers your question. Davina and in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Zakka la fere. That was Brother Muhammad.
