Smilla hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah. While he was happy woman voila.

There is no doubt that the best part of any drink is the very first sip we take.

00:00:41--> 00:01:32

By the time we reach the end of the drink, it usually is the worst part and we'd rather either throw it away or leave it. Or even if we drink it, we struggle to do so. Amazingly, when Allah subhanaw taala speaks of the wine that will be served to the inhabitants of Jannah. He tells us about the very last part of the drink and not the very first which sounds counterintuitive. Allah azza wa jal says Peter misc. He says that the last part of that drink will be musk, the smell of musk, or the fragrance of musk, or the tastes of musk, Allah azza wa jal knows best but what we know is that it will contain the best fragrance that there exists on the face of this earth, and even better.

00:01:34--> 00:02:18

So Subhanallah one is left to ponder, that if the last part of the drink, the part that we usually don't like, is musk, how then is the first part of that drink, served to those lucky people of Jannah? Allah subhanaw taala says in the following verse, not to answer this question, but rather to entice us to work towards this destination will be the Laker fan yet and our first scene within it soon. And for this, let's all of those who strive and compete strife. May Allah subhanaw taala make us of those who strive for Jana will humbly like me
