hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim while he was happy a Jemaine Rosa Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem rubbished Rafi surgery were certainly Omri watlow, aka Dr. melissani yeska, who call him my beloved brothers and sisters Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:43--> 00:01:36

First of all, we praise Allah subhanahu wa tada we seek His help his support in all our matters, the matters of this dunya and the matters of an era and we send bs salutations and mercy upon the last of the prophets, the leader of all the messengers, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon his companion upon his family, and upon all those who follow him up until the last day, my beloved brothers and sisters, as we are going through the last phase of Ramadan, the topic of my talk at this online conference, remarkable Ramadan 2021, organized by almenara Islamic Center, Dubai is what if

00:01:37--> 00:01:41

this is your last Ramadan?

00:01:42--> 00:01:57

My beloved brothers and sisters, Allah subhanahu wa taala gave this confirmation gave this news 1400 years ago

00:01:58--> 00:02:01

and this is a reality.

00:02:02--> 00:03:09

What Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran in surah Allah Imran surah number three is number 185. A lot of Syriza he says I will do Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Kowloon of su the cultural modes, a lot of Riza, he says, and reminds us that every soul shall taste death, every one of us, the rich and the poor, the old and the young, the male and the female, the Muslim and non Muslim, those who believe in Allah and those who do not believe in Allah, every one is going to taste jet. And the real recompense, the full justice will be done on the Day of Judgment. So those who were taken out from the help file, and those who were admitted in Jannah,

00:03:09--> 00:03:13

they are the ones who attain success

00:03:14--> 00:03:40

in this world is nothing but play an amusement, my beloved brothers and sisters, how true it is. The depth may be fallen upon us, any moment of our lives, and Subhanallah as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us, and this comes as a powerful reminder for you and me and for everyone,

00:03:41--> 00:04:06

especially in this global pandemic, where we are going through such a challenging time, that we are seeing our own loved ones passing away from this world. Every single day we see 1000s of people dying Subhan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he reminds us

00:04:07--> 00:04:13

to remind, often the destroyer of pleasures.

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

He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Remember often remember, frequently, the destroyer of pleasures, and what is the destroyer of pleasures? a remote, the death of my beloved brothers and sisters. The reality is, the death may be falling upon us any moment of our lives. And what is this Ramadan is our last Ramadan? How would you treat this Ramadan? If this is your last Ramadan? My beloved brothers and sisters, if you and I were told, if you

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

When I got the message notification,

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

that this Ramadan,

00:05:07--> 00:05:25

these last days of Ramadan that are left are going to be the last days of Ramadan of your life. How would you consider these days of Ramadan? How would you

00:05:27--> 00:05:29

treat these

00:05:30--> 00:06:39

days left over in Ramadan? How would you deal with these days of Ramadan, these nights of Ramadan? My beloved brothers and sisters, I am sure that if you and I are wise enough, we would deal with these days, we would deal with these needs, we will deal and consider Ramadan as the best Ramadan of our lifetime. Because we are told that this could be our last Ramadan, as it was the last Ramadan for many people out there who died before Ramadan who died during Ramadan who died just yesterday, who died just last week who died just last hour. That was the last Ramadan of the life. So this could be our last Ramadan of our lives. How would we treat them as I said, if we are wise, if we are

00:06:39--> 00:07:32

intelligent, if we are careful, if we are conscious, if we are really mindful, we would deal with these days, these nights of Ramadan as the best Ramadan ever of our lifetime, we would make sure that we deal and treat this with our utmost dedication, with absolute devotion, with full focus with absolute attention with clear goal to attain Allah Jenna, my beloved brothers and sisters, we would make sure if we were told that this is our last Ramadan, we would make sure that the deeds that we do are full of quality,

00:07:33--> 00:08:32

we would make sure that we would accelerate we would increase the quantities of our good deeds because we are told, we are told that this could be our last Ramadan. And right after eight we are going to meet our hub, Allah subhanho wa Taala we would make sure that the quality of deeds would be absolutely high, we would not think about our dunya anymore, we would not think about the means of attaining the pleasures of this world anymore. We would make sure that every act of worship that we perform in this Ramadan is going to be of highest quality. The delivery of these deeds would be of absolute quality, we would make sure that we will maximize our good deeds because we are told we are

00:08:32--> 00:08:47

reminded that this is our last Ramadan. My beloved brothers and sisters, let us engage ourselves with the same mindset with the same feeling with the same

00:08:48--> 00:09:33

mindful efforts that this could be our last Ramadan. So as we perform so many deeds, which are so beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala in this month of Ramadan, if it was to be the last of our Ramadan, we would make sure that our Salah our Salah, would be of absolute quality, with full of shoe with absolute pleasure of meeting Allah subhanahu wa taala while we stand and as we know the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, when you stand up for Salah when you stand up for Salah,

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

treat it consider it it could be your favorite Salah it could be your Salah, which is the last Salah it could be my last Salah as my last Salah. So how would we stand when I know that my time is going to be up right after this Salah. I would make sure that I would forget everything and I would stern

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

Still, I would stand with all I would stand with absolute dedication and focus. diverting my absolute, you know, mind to Allah Subhana huhtala every to be that I would do will be of highest quality, every ruko that I do will be of absolute quality every day that I do will be of great quality, every soju that I do will be an absolute quality because I know for a fact that I could die right after my Salah. I know to have the mode the death is trucks. It's a reality. So if I were to assume that this Ramadan is my last Ramadan, I have to really focus and narrow down with my good deeds, how can I make these good deeds as the best deeds of my lifetime because those deeds would be

00:11:05--> 00:11:41

my last deeds of this Ramadan I would not have an opportunity and a possibility to deliver these good deeds because this is my last Ramadan so Allah so this feeling this feeling and experience, this mindset would allow you would inspire and motivate you to deliver the best to Allah subhanho wa Taala so the nice term for Salah as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told Stan, as if it's your last Salah, so if my last Salah

00:11:43--> 00:11:58

is going to be the best in sha Allah, my future will be bright, my beloved brothers and sisters. In the same way. If I and you were told that you have just few hours

00:11:59--> 00:12:12

to read the Quran, to be with the Quran, in this dunya and after that, you are going to be taken away to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

tore up the Darshan Majeed

00:12:16--> 00:13:15

to a Buddha and I mean, you and I would make sure that we forget everything and we will be with the Quran, reading the Quran reflecting upon the Quran, making sure that this Koran should stand up in favor of us, not against us. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us I will put on jet on luck, our Lake, the Quran, it could be in favor of you or against you. And of course it will be in favor for those who are the companions of the Quran. Those who made sure that they are attached with the Quran, with the message of the Quran with the essence of the Quran. For them, the Quran will be in favor and for those unfortunate ones who have not paid heed who did not pay

00:13:15--> 00:13:46

attention to the marvelous speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Quran, it will be against them. My beloved brothers and sisters, Allah of galerija reminds us in the Quran, in Surah Al Furqan surah number 25. Iron number 30. A lot of Buddha records what's going to happen in the future? What would be the call of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:13:47--> 00:14:45

Allah who he reminds us what color rosu what color rosu And on that day, the messenger would say, you're a baby. Whoa, my lord in Nepal mitaka Zoo Ha. Khurana Maha Jura. These are the people certainly These are the people of nine oma, my own nations, my own community for whom I pray for whom I cried for whom I did everything that I could. These are the people who have migrated from the Quran. These are the people who had the Quran indirectness who had the Quran, writing them who bites who had the Quran right in their homes who had the Quran with with them in plenty, but they did not pay attention to the Quran. They did not read the Quran as it should be read. They did not believe

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

in the Quran, as it should be believed. They did not understand the Quran as it should be understood. They did not understand the reflection of the Quran as it should be reflected. They did not practice the Quran is

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

They should be practice. They did not promoted the Quran as it should be promoted, or Allah, or my Lord, these are the people who have migrated the Quran, may Allah bless their prevent us, protect us. And let us not be among those who have migrated with the Quran. And this would come, my beloved brothers and sisters, this mindset, this attention, this focus would come if you and I were to feel that this hour could be my last hour. So let me be prepared. And let me be with the Quran with the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In my last moments of life, my beloved brothers and sisters, likewise, if you and I were to toll, you don't want to be informed, that this is my last fast.

00:15:55--> 00:16:18

Imagine, tomorrow sounds sad, I will not able to do if I am told that this is your last fasting, this is your last fasting of your life. How would I make my fasting, I would make sure that I meet the objective of the fasting and that is

00:16:19--> 00:17:18

I would make sure that I would try to gain the consciousness of Allah boulerice, my beloved brothers and sisters, I would make sure that I reach out to the fruits of fasting because I know that tomorrow I'm not able to fast tomorrow how I have no possibility and no opportunity. So I'll make sure I will not harm my fasting any any, you know, in any way, shape or form. I would make sure that I would make my fasting the absolute good deed because for which Allah subhanho wa Taala he says that I will I will read I will reward fasting also all deeds of the sons of Adam for for them but CRM for fasting, Allah, Allah is he says this is for me, and I shall reward it. Allahu Akbar.
