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

So we're continuing with the explanation of keytab recall from sahih al Bukhari, the softness of the heart.

00:00:08--> 00:00:51

And we were still in the chapter of Babel. Now you have the RO Minuten, Amin, Zahara de Dunia, tena Philosophia the warning and caution against the beauty of this life and competition in it. So we're still in this chapter, we explain there how the Dounia this world is very alluring very attractive, and that once it attracts you to it, it can steal your mind. And it can cause you to think only about it and to live only for it and compete only for its sake. And that is the danger of it that it is very intoxicating.

00:00:52--> 00:00:58

So we continue here and this is a statement from a so heavy

00:01:00--> 00:01:17

but it does reflect something that the prophets Allah was seldom said and taught so, hubbub was saying on a day well Heidi could tell ya Oh my eating sub and fee Rockne on a day when he was branded seven times on his stomach

00:01:19--> 00:01:36

so I'll K is an old method of treatment where you heat an iron in the fire and when it becomes hot red you brand or cauterize the body with a right you put it on the body itself and it burns.

00:01:38--> 00:01:42

And that is an actual method of treatment. It does treat

00:01:43--> 00:01:48

and the prophets always said him said that it does, though the Prophet disliked it.

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

And so he said on that day,

00:01:53--> 00:02:39

when this was happening to him, he was branded seven times were on his stomach. So he was very sick about the Allahu Anhu he said, Lola and not a suit Allah Hina Hannah and Nadeau have been noted at the How To Build Mode he says, if not that the prophets Allah Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam forbade us from asking for death, praying for death, I would have prayed for death. And then he continues that he said the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they died model. They went away they died. And the DIA Dounia did not demote them in any way and will explain that it did not demote them, bring them down, decrease them in any way.

00:02:40--> 00:02:46

We're in a sudden Amina Dunia mal energy doula Huma will the Anila Torah and we've gathered from the dunya

00:02:47--> 00:02:56

that which we cannot spend, we have no way to spend it except on to rob sand, mud meaning in building.

00:02:58--> 00:03:01

So what was he saying? All the Allahu Anhu here?

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

So first lesson

00:03:05--> 00:03:37

is that here are the Allahu Anhu despite his illness, and the difficult treatment that he was undergoing. In another Hadith, he says called Paula Sakagami. It says my death has been but my sickness has been prolonged. And if not that the prophets of Allah Silla had asked us not to wish for death, I would have wished for it. So here that he was really going through some difficult times physically, and he wanted to do what

00:03:38--> 00:03:42

and a lot of people would want to do what at that time, ask for what?

00:03:44--> 00:03:44

Death.

00:03:45--> 00:03:59

Just you just want it to be over. I'm done with this. I'm tired. I'm physically tired. This is too painful. But he remembered that the prophets Allah Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam did not allow that.

00:04:00--> 00:04:02

Now, why is that?

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

Why is it that we were not allowed to ask for death? Because of a harm that touches us?

00:04:11--> 00:04:15

It's because Allah azza wa jal knows best when you're supposed to die.

00:04:17--> 00:04:32

And who knows? Maybe Allah who will extend your life and you will get over that illness and sickness and have a life where you will earn the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal where Allah to answer your dua you will be deprived of all of that.

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

Who knows maybe even if you don't get cured of that particular illness, that still extra few extra days with it might remove all of your sins meaning that you do not know but Allah knows. So rather than channel that frustration and pain into saying I want to die, I want to die. surrender to Allah azza wa jal and say, Yeah, Allah you know what is best

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

For me, cure me

00:05:02--> 00:05:19

or alleviate the suffering or make it an expiation of my sins, increase me in patience, etc make that dua rather than be completely frustrated. And the only thing that you want to think about and wish for is death. So if there is a word Lee har,

00:05:20--> 00:05:24

we are not allowed to wish for death because of it.

00:05:25--> 00:05:45

The excluded from that is a religious harm. Because in one narration of the Hadith lay at Aminian AHA dokumen motel Utah Rena Zilla, Bohemian, a dunya meaning that don't wish for death because of the harm that had touched you from this world, meaning in the dunya, but if it is a religious harm,

00:05:46--> 00:05:50

religious what is a religious harm you're afraid of fitna

00:05:51--> 00:06:18

and you say, Allah, take me before the fitna happens. Take my soul before the fitna happens. They said it is allowed if you actually fear fitna, so you're worried about your religion and that it may go away. Right? Then you are allowed to ask Allah azza wa jal for death because of a religious harm that you will not be able to bear and you're afraid that it will tempt you. That's the only exception.

00:06:19--> 00:06:22

But not for a worldly harm. Right.

00:06:24--> 00:06:45

Then he said in North Harbor, Mohammed model, he says the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu, wasallam, all have gone, many of them have gone away their diet. And the Dounia. This role did not demote them did not bring them down? What is that mean? Meaning that Allah did not give them much of this dunya? They lived?

00:06:46--> 00:06:52

Poor, not a lot. And they died poor, they did not Allah have a lot.

00:06:53--> 00:07:03

So the dunya wasn't given to them. And because it was not given to them. It did not demote them. The question that we want to ask ourselves is,

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

how does the dunya demote you when it is given to you

00:07:08--> 00:07:28

demote is to decrease you? How does it decrease you when it is given to you? So for instance, here is $100,000? How does the Dounia, demote you bring you down? When you have $100,000? Why does that happen? Or why does that typically happen?

00:07:29--> 00:07:42

So there are two interpretations and explanations for this. The first one is the easiest one. The second one requires a little bit of concentration, to understand it, but the easiest one is what

00:07:43--> 00:07:46

is that when Allah gives you the dunya, it's a test.

00:07:47--> 00:07:50

And when you get that dunya, it distracts you

00:07:52--> 00:08:07

and you worry about it, and you spend more time tending to it, and taking care of it. So the time that could have been spent for Allah would be wasted on the dunya, even though it is halal.

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

Right. So for instance, this is your job.

00:08:13--> 00:08:28

And then you get promoted. And when you get promoted, you get more responsibilities. So you need to spend more time on the dunya doing this and doing that researching this going after this project that project. So you get less time for

00:08:29--> 00:08:42

Allah zuji. So that term that could have been spent on the earth, Hera, elevating you in the AF era is wasted on the denier. So that means that the dunya demoted you, even though it's Hala,

00:08:44--> 00:08:46

even if it is Hello.

00:08:47--> 00:09:26

So here, we're talking about degrees and righteousness. We're not telling people Hey, by the way, don't be successful. Hey, by the way, don't be rich, by the way. Everybody knows what is best for them. As long as you avoid the Haram, you're not going to be asked about you know, and then you perform your obligations when it comes to that money. And as we said, in the whole book, it does not enslave you, you own it, it doesn't own you. It doesn't ruin you, it doesn't corrupt you, then that money in your hand is valid. You're not going to be punished for it. But it does demote you.

00:09:27--> 00:10:00

You with me? It does demote you it does bring you down compared to somebody else who doesn't have the same preoccupations as you and he can do better with his time on this earth. Unless you become one of those people who gets money and spend it for the sake of Allah Zoji gets it and here, this is for a masjid here. This is to sponsor a student of knowledge here. This is for the orphans here and you just keep giving. So you get

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

not simply to get and grow your money you get and you spend and you spent, you'd like you might imagine Abubakar will the law. I knew he had money, but it did not demote him.

00:10:12--> 00:10:55

Omar brought the Allahu Ahad money did not demote him with man. Although the Allahu Anhu had so much money, but it did not demote him when the Prophet asked he gave it all and that's why the prophets Allah Allah Allah wa sallam says about with man Mel don't rock with mono Mirtha al Abadi says, Nothing that Earth man will do after this will harm him. Imagine right he will do that one incredible thing and act of sacrifice that the prophets of Allah Allah who earlier was LM says, nothing that you can do after this will ever harm you. You guaranteed Jenna. So that's the type of person that you can be even with money, but most people are not like that. So he said they went away

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

and the dunya did not demote them.

00:10:58--> 00:11:11

So that's the first explanation. That's the easy one. The other one is that some of the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam were of the opinion that if you are given more of this dunya

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

it does deprive you of more pleasure in the earth era, even if what you give in is halal.

00:11:21--> 00:11:25

The more that you get out of this dunya the more that it brings you down

00:11:27--> 00:11:28

even though it is halal.

00:11:29--> 00:11:31

They were of that opinion.

00:11:32--> 00:12:07

So meaning what say there's a hadith that explains it or explains that that point of view or that interpretation? He said so alati was an imam in Surrey yet in terms of Dagenham, what does Islam Illa canto cotta jello Theodora home at loose I agree him. It says if there's an army that goes on jihad, they go on Jihad and they come back safe. And with money is it then two thirds of their reward had been hastened to them given to them in this dunya already. So they go right and they fight.

00:12:09--> 00:12:27

But they're not hurt. So they come back and they're all safe. And they come back and actually they've gained money out of that conflict is two thirds of their reward that would have been in the akhira now is given to them in the dunya. Meaning if they come back without that money, where would that reward be?

00:12:30--> 00:12:34

And if they come back hurt, where would that reward be?

00:12:35--> 00:12:35

The

00:12:37--> 00:13:00

that because they're safe, Allah gave them that reward in the dunya. And because they got money, Allah gave them that reward also in the dunya. So some of the Sahaba and it's supported with some Hadith are of the opinion that the more that Allah gives you of the dunya, the less that you will have in the earth, it doesn't mean that you're completely deprived. But the less that you have.

00:13:01--> 00:13:21

So the richer, the more famous you are, the less that you have in the air here. So what do you get from that, and this is what a bear but the Allahu Anhu was saying is that when you get more of the Dunia, it should cause you more alarm. What is this? What is happening to me?

00:13:22--> 00:13:40

Am I right with Allah Zoda is this a sign that Allah is giving me the reward here, but not there? What can I do to escape that? So it should cause you anxiety, you know, the anxiety that we feel when we lose money?

00:13:41--> 00:14:24

You know, oh my god, I lost money. What I'm going to do, there's also should be a sense of anxiety. When you get something and you say, I hope it's I hope it's something good. I asked Allah azza wa jal, that it's not a demotion that it's actually a promotion. What can I do to save myself from it? So he said they went and they donated not demote them, but he says, but we are sub Namita Dunia we have money that we cannot spend on anything, that he's trying to give it away or spend it. But there's nothing no one or no takers. And there's nothing that he can spend it on. He says Illa fit to rob except in building.

00:14:26--> 00:14:58

Because he or the Allahu Anhu in the next Hadith says somebody came to see him and he was standing next to a wall or a fence a wall that surrounds a garden school, the height and it's being built and he is building it. All the Allahu Anhu and he is saying here that this money of ours we have so again we are now 19 is describing his state. I have no so much money, that I can spend it on anything except building

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

this

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

fence or this wall. And he had said that because In another Hadith he also said, out of the Allahu anhu, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, in a Roger de la geroux fee cliche in in Albina.

00:15:17--> 00:15:26

He says, You will be rewarded for everything that you spent. And as long as you spending it well with the best intention, except in buildings

00:15:27--> 00:15:28

and building a home.

00:15:31--> 00:16:11

You don't get rewarded for it. But what does that mean? That is, if you build what is enough for you, and your family, that's sufficient, that is fine. And you will be rewarded for that. Because it is that's what and necessity and it protects you and it protects them, that's a necessity, you will get rewarded for it. When you start going extra, that's another room that's another garage, that's another level, that's another and you don't need that so you don't get rewarded for it. Because that is extra. And if you go really far with that, it could be a sin, because it's wasteful.

00:16:13--> 00:16:44

Because it's a sin because it's wasteful. So if you see someone, he has this big mansion, and it's way beyond the need of him and his family, and he built it like that, or he bought it like that, that extra room that he has, does that he does not get rewarded for it. And it could be Allah who Allah, what a sinful act, because beyond your need, it's beyond your need. Right? You know, there's a hadith of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam

00:16:45--> 00:16:53

where he said a bed for you have a bed for your wife. The third is for the guest. And the fourth one is for the shaytaan

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

what is the fourth one?

00:16:57--> 00:17:34

The extra. So you need the first for you. Right? mattress for you. Right? You need that? You need one for your wife. Right? A third one you keeping extra for home? A guest who could could come in and they need to sleep. The fourth one is what this extra is that's where the shaytaan so it's something like that that is spent for nothing extra. That is for the shaitaan and for the show if shaytaan it means that it's not for Allah azza wa jal so it could be against you Allah Who or alum.

00:17:37--> 00:18:01

The next chapter is Babel, holy Lucha Allah so the heading the title of that chapter is an idea. It says that the chapter about the saying of Allah azza wa jal Yeah, are you a nurse oh people in know Abdullah he helped the Promise of Allah is true. So do not be deceived by this worldly life and do not deceive by the deceiver.

00:18:03--> 00:18:30

Indeed, the shaytaan is an enemy of yours in the shaitan Alaikum. I do one, so take him as an enemy. He calls his followers to be of the people of hellfire. So that's the title of the chapter. It's an AI. And in it Allah azza wa jal is saying to 40 people what year you had nurse may people listen, the Promise of Allah is true. is absolutely true. It's going to come true. What is the Promise of Allah?

00:18:32--> 00:18:57

Life is not gonna continue forever. That there is a hereafter that there is heaven and there is hell that you will be asked all this is the Promise of Allah azza wa jal. So this is true. And you know what to be true and you're gonna die. That's what that's the promise of Allah. So don't let the Dounia deceive you. Here's the promise. And that's the end and you know that it's the end. Don't let the dunya play with your head.

00:18:59--> 00:19:39

Don't let it tell you lies and you believe those lies and don't believe the lies of the shaytaan. So what is the shaitaan tell you in in contrast to the Promise of Allah, He tells you that you will live forever. He tells you that it's okay enjoy this thing. There's nothing wrong with it. Allah will forgive you. He tells you delay repentance. He tells you that you're still young. It tells you that's not really haram. And why should it be haram? And it doesn't make sense that it's haram. He tells you that if you die, you will definitely go to Jenna. He makes promises.

00:19:41--> 00:19:47

A shaytani R Educo modificata. So also the shaytaan breaks promises. If you spent you'll be poor.

00:19:49--> 00:19:53

If you sit and you read the Quran, you're wasting your time.

00:19:54--> 00:19:55

Right.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

If you've gone to the mess did it's too much work and too much

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

effort. So it makes promises and Allah makes promises. And Allah is saying, what? Don't let him play with your head. Because who is he? He is your enemy. Like him either he is your enemy. So take him as an enemy. So if you hear the whisper of your enemy, do you believe him? No.

00:20:20--> 00:20:24

If you hear a promise from your enemy, do you believe him? No.

00:20:25--> 00:20:43

Just consider, for instance, states, in our world today, two states that are enemies of each other. When one state says something about the other, do they believe? Absolutely not. When they say we have peaceful intentions? Do you believe that we want to only your

00:20:44--> 00:21:00

best? We have We only know the best for you? Do you believe in? No. Why? Because we says we are enemies. So we mistrust everything you say. So Allah is saying about the shaytaan

00:21:01--> 00:21:05

whom you sitting when you sit, and he wants you to panic about your risk,

00:21:07--> 00:21:11

but not panicking. So consider for instance, if somebody comes and says,

00:21:12--> 00:21:15

Give Xhaka What do you do?

00:21:16--> 00:21:23

You don't you don't want to panic is I don't want to give my money. That's my money, give sort of no my money.

00:21:24--> 00:21:26

But they say pay it for a new game.

00:21:28--> 00:21:41

He started as smooth and easy for you to pay paid for a new shoes. It's easy, paid for anything for any consumption. It's easy, but you save something that will actually benefit you, the shaytaan stops you.

00:21:43--> 00:21:55

So Allah is saying don't listen to the whispers of the shaitaan because you have to take him as an enemy. And he is marching with his followers all to jahannam Are you going to follow him there?

00:21:56--> 00:22:10

So it's interesting to know that Allah azza wa jal told us about the plots of the shaytaan and told us about his intention, yet we decided to follow Him and not follow Allah azza wa jal.

00:22:11--> 00:22:36

And you have to take these impulses whenever you have an impulse, or a suggestion, or an inclination, take it and see, is this from Allah? Or from the shaytaan? And it's from from Allah believe it, if it conforms to what you read in the Quran, and the Sunnah, believe it. And if you find its opposite of that, no, it's from the shaitaan. And if it's from the JSON, do the opposite,

00:22:38--> 00:22:40

do the opposite. Right?

00:22:42--> 00:22:44

As some people have said about,

00:22:46--> 00:22:57

and this is not like a rule of thumb, that always works all the time, but is just for illustration. They said that if there you have a choice between two things,

00:22:58--> 00:23:04

and you don't know which one is write, see which one you like and do the opposite.

00:23:05--> 00:23:40

Because typically your halwa is with what harms you, your how well your desire leans towards what harms you, as again as again, not a rule of thumb that works all the time. But just to illustrate the fact that some many times what we desire is what harms us and because the shaitaan is inflating it, but again, the the true scale is the Quran and Sunnah. If you find that this is a promise of Allah Zoda take it and if it's a promise of the Shaitaan disbelieve in it and say,

00:23:41--> 00:23:49

I don't follow this and will not march behind you till the till to hellfire.

00:23:51--> 00:23:53

The first Hadith here

00:23:54--> 00:23:55

it says that

00:23:56--> 00:24:42

someone brought with men are the Allahu Anhu is the whole a water for will do and he says, oh my god soon Allen Maka it he was sitting outside the masjid or in a place in Medina, Allah fatawa.so He performed will do and he performed it well. thermocol then he said, I saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam making will do while sitting in this spot, and he performed will do well for us and Allah will do. Then him for McCarl he said SallAllahu wasallam mentor Mithila Hodel although Ethan may attend masjid, he says if you make will do similar to what I've done, then you come to the masjid and you pray to like as and you sit down Allah will forgive you your previous sins. Then he

00:24:42--> 00:24:45

said SallAllahu wasallam Do not be deluded.

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

So with man illustrated how the prophets OLALIA seldom performed doodle. He said I saw him doing it this way. And he was sitting in outside of the mess did in a public area show

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

People how he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam performed will do. And he also had a message he said he performed we'll do it like this. And then he said, If you perform it like this meaning a good performance of will do. So that tells you about the value of will do is not just wash up very quickly, so that you can pray in it, it's in itself Eva,

00:25:24--> 00:25:44

in in itself has the key to the Salah. So one of the conditions for the forgiveness that is going to come is for the will do to be a well performed will do is something that needs to be learned. And remember when you're doing it, I'm doing and that in itself is a battle that in itself can forgive my sins.

00:25:45--> 00:26:06

So performance of voodoo says Then you come to the masjid and you pray to rock as another narration of the Hadith it says it's obligatory because meaning is the Salah in JAMA and also an other narration of the Hadith it says that it forgives the sins between this salah and the previous Salah.

00:26:07--> 00:26:32

So, this hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is saying what that every time you pray, and you perform will do and you prostrate to Allah azza wa jal and you finish your Salah, the sins between each two prayers will be forgiven. So when you perform a prayer, sir, the sins between Laura Nasser will be what?

00:26:33--> 00:26:45

Forgiven pray Muhammad between mockery bamboo Azur forgiven Asia between Asia and Margaret forgiven Fajr between fetcher donation forgiven, and so on, and so on. So if you keep praying what happens?

00:26:47--> 00:26:48

All your sins

00:26:49--> 00:27:02

get erased, get erased. And I'm not going to go into with there's no need between whether it's only minor sins or major sins, there is no need. Let's just stick with the Hadith, the sins will be forgiven.

00:27:03--> 00:27:10

But at the end of it, the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam said, Learn to row do not be deluded.

00:27:12--> 00:27:21

Why not? Don't be deluded, don't think that if you hear this hadith, that if you pray, then you can do whatever you want in between.

00:27:23--> 00:27:39

So the shaitaan can come to you as with the dunya, and delude you. And he comes to you also religiously and delude you. He says, Don't you know this hadith, that if you pray, Allah will forgive you. So do whatever you want in between.

00:27:41--> 00:27:55

So the prophets Alehissalaam said Do not be deluded? How do you know that that Salah was accepted? That that will do was a will though that Allah was pleased with? Do you have access to the unseen? He says no.

00:27:56--> 00:28:40

So a person a Muslim? Does What does his actions hopeful that they will be accepted but not certain? You don't know hopeful all the time, but not certain that they will be accepted, and also fearful that they could be rejected? Maybe they were missing something substantial? So that's why when we finish our salah, what do we say, a stuffer Allah as the hero Allah as Dr. Allah, because we anticipate and we know for sure that there were things that are missing in it. So how could you be 100% sure that my sins were forgiven, but then we keep praying because that's what I hope will happen. So when he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam law, the third row

00:28:42--> 00:29:21

so it's good to keep that in mind. If you hear anything hopeful in the Quran and the Sunnah, take it and be happy that it's there that Allah will forgive sins and will send you to gender even Allah azza wa jal, but don't think that you've just booked your ticket already. And then now you're guaranteed a place in Jannah. No, you keep always asking Allah xojo and improving on whatever you are doing. The last chapter insha Allah that we will read for tonight. Babu the heavy Salia hain. This is a chapter about the death of the righteous, the death of the righteous, and

00:29:22--> 00:29:23

Willow Adam.

00:29:25--> 00:29:57

Its connection maybe to the previous chapter, is that the righteous as long as they are alive, they are one of the ways that Allah azza wa jal could protect you from the temptations of the dunya and the plots of the shaitaan because they remind you, they remind you verbally of what you're supposed to do, they tell you what they're supposed to do. And also by practice, they tell you how you're supposed to live. So how the one of the ways that you remain steadfast and strong is when there are strong people around you. Right.

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

And this is how

00:30:00--> 00:30:27

how we support each other. If you're strong and I'm stronger than the rest will be strong by the will of Allah azza wa jal because they look and they say, yes, they are there. That's an example. That's how I'm supposed to be. So that becomes a model. But if everyone is corrupt, or my any of some of us are corrupt, that encourages corruption. That's also one of the reasons why if a person commits a sin, you keep it what? Hidden.

00:30:28--> 00:31:20

Because the mere fact that you made it public is an invitation for others to repeat that sin. It becomes smaller when it goes public. Oh, he did it. So it's okay for other people to do it. It diminishes in severity when it becomes public. So the happy Sala Hain the death of the righteous, so the righteous and their presence is one of the ways that soften the hearts and their departure is problematic. Because you lose Baraka, I'll explain in sha Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said he had hobble Sati Hornell Oh, well Ruffalo, well, he says the righteous will pass away, will die in succession, one after the other way up Kahoka Hosanna and remains the inferior

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

Galfer Leticia area with tumber are like the useless husks of barley or bad dates. Now you bury him, Allahu Allah, Allah does not give any weight to them.

00:31:33--> 00:31:39

So he said SallAllahu wasallam Yeah, double sided on the righteous were alive.

00:31:40--> 00:31:43

And then one after the other, they die.

00:31:44--> 00:31:48

And when you lose the righteous, what do you lose? You lose Baraka?

00:31:50--> 00:31:53

How do you lose Baraka when a righteous person dies?

00:31:55--> 00:31:57

You lose the baraka of their dua.

00:31:58--> 00:32:03

Right? You lose the baraka of Allah azza wa jal honoring

00:32:04--> 00:32:10

the people around and that area around because of him, you lose the baraka of their good deeds.

00:32:11--> 00:32:38

Because it's not there. You lose the baraka of their knowledge. It's not there, the baraka of them sitting in teaching, that's gone. The baraka of them seeing something wrong and saying this is wrong and stopping it. It dies Subhan Allah, there were people that Allah has that it had blessed, as long as they were alive, the fitna was dead. And they will be rulers and people of power,

00:32:39--> 00:32:43

or people of corruption sitting in waiting. So as long as he's alive, I can't say anything.

00:32:44--> 00:33:01

When he dies, then they have the audacity and the power to speak up and say whatever they want, but not as long as that person is alive. So there are some people who are as long as they were alive. They block the fitna, when they die, the fitna precedes,

00:33:03--> 00:33:15

so they are a Baraka, and they teach and all of that. So he says, a solid bone and over and over. And as they leave, they don't get replaced.

00:33:16--> 00:33:31

That's the problem. They don't get replaced. And so when you hear about scholars dying, one after the other, what is the calamity here? The calamity is will and can they be replaced?

00:33:32--> 00:33:36

And will the second generation have enough to replace them?

00:33:37--> 00:33:44

And the death of someone of knowledge is a disaster because their knowledge has gone with him. You know how

00:33:45--> 00:34:19

some when some people die celebrities and what have you die and you know, the media starts celebrating or mourning them or paying tribute to them and broadcasting snippets about their life and what they said and this and that. And you start even even you I mean if you follow it even you don't know the person, you start feeling sorry for them because of the way that they glaramara glamorize it. So think about that. And think about their real contribution. What was really their actual contribution

00:34:20--> 00:34:28

to mourn them like that. Whereas in comparison, when a scholar dies, you don't hear any of these things.

00:34:29--> 00:34:33

They just disappear. Somebody that no one reports it they just die.

00:34:36--> 00:34:51

But Allah azza wa jal knows, even if the media or we don't care Allah azza wa jal cares about them. So it says the righteous they've die and the next one dies and the next one dies and they don't get replaced. Until eventually Yep, haha fella.

00:34:52--> 00:34:53

hatherleigh Scum.

00:34:55--> 00:34:56

That's what remains scum.

00:34:57--> 00:34:58

Right

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

AlFalah Tisha, I agree with terms like the husk

00:35:04--> 00:35:07

of barley, nothing,

00:35:08--> 00:35:08

right?

00:35:10--> 00:35:41

Or ora geothermally. Bad dates, they say like what they say, you know, when you sit and you have a lot of dates, where we can't relate to it, but they can relate to it. But think of any food, right? That comes to mind, you have dates, and they people start eating, and no one's touching the bad dates in that pot. And they take in the good ones, only the good ones only until they're full and they leave. And what is left is the worst of the dates is that so what happens eventually, as you move towards the day of judgment, that's what's going to happen.

00:35:43--> 00:36:33

Age by age, decade by decade, century by Century, it gets worse and worse. And just imagine, there was a time when a companion of Muhammad sallahu wa sallam was a life, that you could point to him and say, he saw the Prophet, even though he didn't, he saw the Prophet. And then everybody who saw the Prophet died, that generation just vanished. And just imagine the baraka that this earth had lost by their departure. No one on this earth now had seen Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, all of them have died. But at least there's a tablet and we saw the companions. And then that generation passed away, and no one who had seen a companion was alive. And then the one who have seen the companions

00:36:33--> 00:37:19

of the companions passed away, and none of them was alive. And slowly we are losing that Baraka. So, when you are approaching the Day of Judgment, and you look at the world today, and how the world is corrupt today, you see if this is true, most of the righteous have departed and most of what the people that we have today, I'm not saying all, absolutely not, but I say many of the people that we have today are like this, he'll Falah Hosanna nothing. Now you will see him, Willa, you barely human Lahu Allahu Allah, Allah does not give any weight to them. And why is that is because we did not give ourself any weight, not because Allah azza wa jal hates, so and so or made them like that is

00:37:19--> 00:37:29

you do not give yourself any weight. So Allah azza wa jal does not give any weight to you. What weight have you given to yourself if the only thing you worry about is money.

00:37:30--> 00:37:55

And we are telling you that this is not how Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam lived. And this is not how the Sahaba have lived. The only thing that they care about is soccer day and night. That's it, or eating day and night, or entertainment day and night. And this is the level that you're at. And you say I am worth something.

00:37:56--> 00:37:57

What are you worth?

00:37:58--> 00:38:07

If you are a container, and we were to empty that container out, and we were to separate what's in it? What would we find in it that is worth anything?

00:38:09--> 00:38:17

If all of it is nonsense, then you have to be saying to yourself, well, maybe I am nonsense, as long as I'm filled with nonsense.

00:38:18--> 00:38:22

But you want to be among the righteous what righteousness do you have in you?

00:38:24--> 00:38:47

So Phil, you're this is not a condemnation. This is in fact, any directed at you and myself as well. Fill your insight with things that Allah azza wa jal considers to be a value. Do you have oran on the inside? Do you have Hadith? Do you have vicar? Do you have the love of Allah? Do you have the desire to do something good and meaningful with your life to help

00:38:48--> 00:38:56

the creation of Allah? So just for the sake of Allah, do you have something? Do you have a good intention? And you're working on it or not?

00:38:58--> 00:39:31

So it's a sign of this Deb the Day of Judgment. And of course, the more that you move closer to the day of judgment and have fewer righteous people around you, the fewer reminders and the fewer motivators to obey Allah azza wa jal and more distractions you and I will have. So know that you are marching towards what by each decade, you're moving closer to the day of judgment. So each decade theoretically, on average,

00:39:33--> 00:39:34

is going to be worse than the one before it.

00:39:36--> 00:39:47

So hey, right. And if you have children, get them ready for the fact that their life on average is going to be worse than yours.

00:39:49--> 00:39:57

And has more fitness than us. So get them ready for that and then great grandparent and then then grandchildren, your grandchildren will have even worse.

00:39:59--> 00:39:59

Not again

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

Not a call to say,

00:40:02--> 00:40:04

I'm not having any kids. No.

00:40:05--> 00:40:51

It's a call for you to do what? To be ready for the challenge. Because if Allah Zoda that picked you for it, and you're up to it, then you will be among the best. Because you're up to it. Because you just said, Yeah, Allah, I want to do what pleases you despite the obstacles not running away from it. You chose to put me in this place, and you chose to put me in this place. I asked Allah that it'd be the case because you know that I will be good in this spot in this age. So do your best, and you are in jihad, as long as you are. As long as you have that intention, you are in jihad. That pleases Allah as legit as long as you have that intention. You can make it so see we'll stop here in

00:40:51--> 00:40:56

sha Allah a bit I mean and see if you have any questions related to the topic.

00:40:58--> 00:41:01

And if not, that's perfectly fine also as well.

00:41:02--> 00:41:02

Okay.

00:41:03--> 00:41:15

Nothing right. The Badak a low frequency inshallah next week at the same time Subhanak Lama will be having the shadow Allah either he understood Furukawa to boil Lake hamdulillah Arabella halloumi
