00:02:57--> 00:03:09

What's in your heart? What's in your mind? What's in your soul? How will it leave your body? How will you end up? Where will you be going? What's the purpose of your life?

00:03:11--> 00:03:21

00:04:38--> 00:04:42

When the Angel of Death comes to take your soul away

00:04:43--> 00:04:53

Someday names will abolish will perish you will either be called a man or a catheter. believer this believer Which one will you be?

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

Now,

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

your birth date

00:05:40--> 00:05:43

most of us think the date I was born.

00:05:49--> 00:05:51

He says you have two birthdays.

00:05:54--> 00:05:58

The first thing, the one that you were born, that's your first birthday.

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

Your second birthday

00:06:04--> 00:06:09

is the day that Allah blessed you and granted you Toba.

00:06:11--> 00:06:24

Let's go back in history. Time in a place where the best of the best of creation that ever walked upon the earth lived with Prophet Mohammed Salah lo Allah usli the Sahaba jello

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

capitani Malika jello

00:06:31--> 00:06:46

story is long. We don't have time to go into it. But let's take it to the end. When Prophet Mohammed Salah Salam came in the masjid nabawi May Allah grant us she had her there. I mean, after long health, righteous life.

00:06:50--> 00:06:52

He looked at him smiled with anger.

00:06:55--> 00:07:00

He wanted to repent. He defaulted on Jihad when he was called.

00:07:03--> 00:07:04

He had no excuse. He said,

00:07:07--> 00:07:15

bye but when Allah subhanaw taala put him through the test, as you will be tested in this dunya in the EU after

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

he was tested.

00:07:21--> 00:07:27

You will be tested. I'm not talking about the one that some of you will have in a few days. May Allah give you great success.

00:07:31--> 00:07:39

But now he had a choice to make. When the Kings come and says I heard your friend is treating you this way.

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

You being banished out.

00:07:43--> 00:07:48

Even your wife left you know in divorce, but she was asked to leave.

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

And he was committed so much.

00:07:54--> 00:08:01

That all these tests and trials he passed with flying colors, but he was honest with himself that he wanted to hold on to the Battle of

00:08:02--> 00:08:11

Mohammed rasulillah is the best testimony for you in this life and knew after Nothing is more important than that he never compromised on his values.

00:08:12--> 00:08:13

So I

00:08:15--> 00:08:16

went back

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

to forgive him on that day.

00:08:22--> 00:08:24

When he went back after the revelation of the Quran

00:08:26--> 00:08:42

that Allah granted him Toba. He goes back to the masjid prostrates to Allah as soon as he heard the good news to thank him for the Toba when he goes back to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when people are coming to hug him, why did they hug him because he won the lottery?

00:08:44--> 00:08:48

No, because the Lord went to them repentance, they have their priorities straight.

00:08:50--> 00:08:53

So prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:08:56--> 00:08:58

glad tidings.

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

Bashara come along with me.

00:09:03--> 00:09:04

He says app should be

00:09:05--> 00:09:24

the best day that the sun is rising upon since your mother has given you birth. So he says the second birth date is the date that a law granted you Toba and don't ever forget it. Keep it upon your site to keep you on the straight and narrow, never to go back.

00:09:26--> 00:09:36

As you will remember that day in Jannah. You remember the day that the Lord granted you with Toba? So May Allah grant this Toba before we die I mean,

00:09:39--> 00:09:41

your height to another

00:09:42--> 00:09:44

60 arm's length

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

your next

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

longest next, where's your hike come from? Do you say hi I know that. Here. I will just say my phone

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

Is this my grandfather? Is that or do you do something about it? What's your height? Is it the measurement tape? No.

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

You're right. in the sight of Allah, are you bigger, small, taller shorts? Allah does not look at heights doesn't look at the bodies looks within you.

00:10:23--> 00:10:33

So what's your heart like if he full of hatred, or full of love, love of Allah subhanaw taala that comes first and foremost, or the hope of dunya or the love of

00:10:35--> 00:10:38

this life, worldly possession. We're not saying it's haram

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

we're not making anything.

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

We're not saying that.

00:10:49--> 00:10:50

But we're saying

00:10:52--> 00:10:52

in

00:10:54--> 00:11:05

Kumasi ratar o this if all these eight categories are more beloved to you than your father, your father's your children, and your your brother ins in your world tribe,

00:11:07--> 00:11:15

your money your businesses, your dwellings your home is more beloved to Allah and striving for his sake is more beloved to align your heart than that

00:11:17--> 00:11:18

right away

00:11:20--> 00:11:23

so wait till Allah subhanaw taala decreases man

00:11:24--> 00:11:25

check

00:11:26--> 00:11:29

is the full of the man strength in sha Allah.

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

What about your address?

00:11:36--> 00:11:42

How many of you moved so many times? How many of us had to go change the address?

00:11:44--> 00:11:53

returned to sender does not live here anymore. Moved countries cities, continents, everything. So why it's called?

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

The place where you're not gonna move anymore. May Allah grant does that mean?

00:12:01--> 00:12:07

your address? Where would it be when you settle for less? You work so hard in this dunya?

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

To get a place that you can call your own?

00:12:13--> 00:12:25

How could you not be striving for a castle of silver and gold? a brick of silver brick of gold? Where we address be Who will you never be? Will it be prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

But as you actions,

00:12:30--> 00:12:37

talk, walk, life reflect that. Do you really want it?

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

Well,

00:12:42--> 00:12:48

those who strive in our path with guidance always. If you really want it, you can have it

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

but

00:12:52--> 00:13:03

Allah will not change unless you change within yourself. So do you want it when you look at a person in that mirror? That's yourself Do you respect that person? The other life What do you have a lifestyle?

00:13:04--> 00:13:05

Where do you live?

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

Where do you live? At least by the water?

00:13:13--> 00:13:20

But what I'm asking where will you address be in the hereafter? how hungry are you for Jana?

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

Do for the dunya

00:13:27--> 00:13:39

do for this dunya as long as you live in it give it that what it deserves but do for you how hereafter you're how long you're staying in the EU after give it that worse.

00:13:46--> 00:13:51

I wonder if you wonder if you want to run away from the elbow how'd you sleep all night?

00:13:53--> 00:13:56

And if you want the agenda How do you sleep all night? So

00:13:57--> 00:14:03

how much do you want it and do for the Hellfire as long as you can withstand it

00:14:04--> 00:14:07

when I'm used to places and then a candle flame

00:14:11--> 00:14:15

Can you hold on Can you withstand this pain? It's not that don't do it.

00:14:16--> 00:14:17

Please do not try this at home.

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

But at least keep that in mind.

00:14:24--> 00:14:27

00:14:30--> 00:14:40

With that journey will continue after justice raha asking Allah subhanaw taala to make us among those who listen speech and follow the best of it. work around hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Hakuna Matata is known as

00:17:55--> 00:17:59

When a man came in the masjid, when he asked for that Mohammed, Salah when he was talking,

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

he says matter, Sarah.

00:18:04--> 00:18:18

When is the time Prophet Mohammed saw Southern continued some of the Sahaba says maybe he was angry when he said that he did not want to answer him. Some of them says maybe he did not hear him. After he finished his lecture. He says he was the one that asked about the time.

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

He said

00:18:25--> 00:18:31

What did he say? Did he say the civil rights from the west? The 10 signs in Malaysia the minor signs.

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

He asked him another question.

00:18:37--> 00:18:56

Mark Ma, what have you prepared for that time? What have you prepared for that time? Can I ask you one another rhetorical question. At least be honest with yourself. If you put your head on the pillow tonight. Are you ready for that? Not to come up again.

00:18:57--> 00:19:04

Are you ready for that? I to close not to open again. Are you ready for that breath to come out not to come back again?

00:19:06--> 00:19:09

Are you ready for that last pulse of your hearts.

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

If we're truly honest, will say no.

00:19:15--> 00:19:17

So what are you waiting for?

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

holding you back?

00:19:23--> 00:19:25

It's time well why

00:19:28--> 00:19:35

isn't it time for the true believers were hard to tremble by the requirements of a law. Come back to a law What are you waiting for at the end of the day?

00:19:36--> 00:19:43

Before you leave this message right now your intention is I returned to law. I tried everything in this life.

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

It's not working. I'm not happy.

00:19:47--> 00:19:51

I'm not secure. I don't feel the sincerity he man is weak.

00:19:52--> 00:19:53

My relationship with a law

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

repair the relationship between you and us.

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

low low and repair the relationship between you and every other creation of a loss of

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

what comes first.

00:20:09--> 00:20:11

You say manyana when you hear a low

00:20:13--> 00:20:19

I'll get it when I have time. I hear that I'm watching a movie the movies more important to me than the beloved

00:20:22--> 00:20:25

soccer game. I'm watching my country man

00:20:27--> 00:20:29

fabricated it there's not

00:20:31--> 00:20:37

that I love my family on the country, I have to watch the cricket game I have to watch the football game or soccer game for the what? Allah

00:20:40--> 00:20:48

saying Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater by your actions and saying no, it was not greater. This movie is more important to me. So Panama

00:20:51--> 00:20:52

coming back

00:20:53--> 00:20:54

to aloha

00:20:56--> 00:21:03

time, it's now before you leave that door. You better have your intention. It is time for me or law to

00:21:05--> 00:21:17

not fulfill rumina law fleet case back to a law not away from Allah. Will you be up to 11121 we're running away from the lawn Judgment Day.

00:21:18--> 00:21:23

The one is the one that is a slave that ran away from his master.

00:21:25--> 00:21:33

Like the cops come running to you or for you, running away. Is this who you want to be on Judgement Day? We want to

00:21:34--> 00:21:46

like you haven't seen your family for long. You missed them so much. You run with open arms hug and kiss and embrace your family members. Is this who you want? Yes, of course that's what you want. What else do you want?

00:21:49--> 00:21:53

true success yet he distance yourself an okie away from the hellfire.

00:21:54--> 00:21:59

That is a true success. But to be successful, you have to pay your dues and

00:22:00--> 00:22:08

it's your test. So think about this test that you will be taken and imagine yourself taking that test and waiting for that

00:22:10--> 00:22:23

report card. How would you feel when you wait for your report card? Your heart trembles things are waiting, people are waiting what's your report card say a plus or minus?

00:22:24--> 00:22:38

You think and what's yes this will get me another job. This will take me up one notch. This will get me that this will get me this. But you know thought about that report card on judgment day. It is not a job it is not another day it's not another environment.

00:22:41--> 00:22:42

And so what

00:22:45--> 00:22:51

what will your eyes say? Well your mouth say senses limbs, winds and desire.

00:22:52--> 00:22:55

So from now on, I take away

00:22:57--> 00:23:00

I want you to think that your eyes are like camera lenses.

00:23:02--> 00:23:15

Use the mouse to your mp3. Your mind is your modem. Your heart is your heart drive. Everything you see everything you hear everything you say is downloaded and recorded.

00:23:16--> 00:23:24

And it will be uploaded on Judgement Day. Will you be proud of that DVD that you will see on Judgement Day.
