Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah, early wasafi women were my brothers and sisters in Islam Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
like to welcome you all here. Now ask Allah subhana wa Taala to accept our deeds.
Today insha Allah, when we reached last week, the point of where Hello Sandy, now I'm going to talk about what comes after the burdens of life. But I can't do that, until I talk about the end of this world in general. And this will be our topic today. And we'll reach the point where the world has ended. And what is the state which allows plant which allows pantalla is in and next week, inshallah, we'll talk about the resurrection. And what's beyond that, what happens, while your milk Leanna, the miseries and the blisters of the Day of Judgment.
My brothers and sisters in Islam,
just as a last parent, and I began this creation, he will end this creation
so that all of it can go into the Day of Judgment.
If anyone doesn't believe in the Day of Judgment, it is as though you are saying that Allah created us for no reason, no particular purpose I can send out or no valuable purpose.
The people who sinned and killed and harmed they get off the hook. And the people who strive the struggle didn't did good. They did it for nothing.
And he's one of the reasons that those who don't believe in the Hereafter, I think this is one of the reasons why they commit suicide, when they lose
all their wealth, or they lose their loved ones,
or their job. And they feel that they've got no future.
When they lose all connection with life, they commit suicide.
One of the main reasons is because they don't have they did not have a belief in a man in a life after here. And therefore then they don't know why they're here.
And so they can create their own purpose. A lot of them create their own purpose. And some of the purpose they create is family.
I'm here for my family. That's a small purpose of life. But that's not the whole purpose of why you're here on Earth. Because if that was the whole purpose, then Allah will keep us living forever here. Why is the death? Why does the law take members of the family before what and strange of some people say before their time? What does that mean? It went before its time, just that we knew and everyone's gonna die. What do you mean before his time,
death has no age.
And this life is not paradise. And we're not meant to stay here. We are here for a different reason. We are here to grow our here after.
So a lost paradise created us. And He will judge us in the hereafter because he is the just one. He knows what we're going to be. But we don't know where we're going to be. So in order that we don't argue with God on the Day of Judgment, Allah says, you can go through the life and see for yourself. And on the Day of Judgment, your whole life will be reversed. You will see yourself from the moment you died, you will see everything going backwards. You're living and it's all you'll reliving the moments until you were a baby. And then Allah spent Allah saves you from that. So you can stay alive so you don't return back until nothingness. You see it all forwards and backwards.
And so people who deny their hands and their feet and their eyes and their ears and all of that will bear witness that you did it.
There is no running away on that day.
But before that day comes there are signs and it's quite unusual that some people they say, I didn't have a sign before I died. Everyone has a sign before they died. Die, everyone.
Everyone, but these signs are different. They come in various forms. Some people have immediate signs of death before they die, such as illness, such as even spiritual feelings.
Others, they don't have any of these signs. It just hits them like that. But the size I'm talking about
as time progresses
As you grow
in age, you're actually getting smaller in age.
that we grow, we're actually getting our life is getting shorter. And therefore,
time is one of the signs.
Age is another white hair is another wrinkles. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, everything has a cure, except for two things.
Everything has a cure liquidly there in the world, every illness has a cure. If you find it, he'll be cured, except for two things.
And moat will harm death and age old age. You can't reverse it all those commercials you see on television about nivia and this cream or that cream, I don't know the names but you know, all these creams telling you because you know your life and they put these women and men up there as though they have this really first skin is that that's that's a lie. It's just deceiving you.
There's no cure for old age.
The other signs of the world and my dear brothers and sisters,
literal signs that the prophet SAW Selim told us when I say literal meaning they are real, but their descriptions are really unknown to us in detail. But there are actual things are going to happen if that that will be shared by everyone. So this specific signs for yourself and there are
common signs for everyone else. They are the signs of the last hour. I'm not going to go through them in detail today because that's not our topic. But I'm just going to go through it focusing on the Worlds End we're talking about the hereafter.
This world ending
shows us that when Allah says that everything's going to die, it means everything in this world, including the world itself.
Allah says in the Quran, called lumen Allah
via Docomo Jumeirah, because
everything on it will perish. The only thing that will be left is your load,
presence of your load and the last panel of dialysis in several verses that the world in the sky will perish.
And the province the last lm is to say a dunya Fannia The world is going to perish.
A man asked him again, when is the last hour so don't ask about that. What have you prepared for it? But the point is they're asking because the Prophet had told him so I sent him the world's gonna end.
Allah says yo matoba
the Earth, the world, and the sky will be changed from the world in the sky, your new ones to another world has gone meaning Allah is gonna destroy it and recreate another different to it. Destroy it, make another one.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala
he replies to those who deny
the end and resurrection
by saying look at the life that you live in now.
What who led you to Syria have Busan been a rahmati had either had either a call Let's call him sakana who never let him meet
out of the car. So last night that says look at the way we created the life as an example of why how we are going to resurrect you. Look at how we sense winds
and clouds as a good sign for you. Have mercy so you can have water so you can grow your crops and eat. When the clouds fill up.
We take it to a land that is dead land that has no crops, nothing it's dry drought.
And from it we bring back life of fruits.
Just like that Allah says gather look just like that or similar to that. We will raise the dead people
I sell you to Allah says I say this to you in the hope that you may remember and reflect.
So there are many signs or a year to this. And Allah says calesa too soon.
Behold you shall be resurrected.
The signs are many. There are minor signs and major signs. As for the minor signs
They began, when, who knows when they began
the minus signs of the closeness of the worlds and
the death of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Now his death.
So that's 1437 years ago now, to us, it seems a long time. But I want to say two things.
If you're 10 years old, 30 years old 40 5060. You know, in your mind, you know, it was a long time ago, but how do you feel? You feel like it was yesterday? Isn't that right?
60 years, 100 years, it feels like just yesterday, in your mind, you know, it was long time ago.
But feeling suddenly a little bit.
If you lived for 1000 years, voila, it's gonna feel the same. There's a narration about no highlight his sell me live to 1000. And about 150, or up to 3350 years, different durations, but more than 1000 years. And on his deathbed, the people asked him, How did you How do you feel living all this long time. And he says, it's like, he said, it's like a person opened the door, took a step to the other side, and then close the door. And he's trying to say that it's, you don't even feel it just passes like that.
So whether you're now or in 30 years time, it's the same thing, you're going to feel the same as now.
Allah, Allah says in the Quran, aquatera velin, boom, boom fee, Rafi let the Moon
The day of accountability has come very close to the people, while the people
are in an illusion of their own. Awful, they're forgetful of it. They're too busy away from it. You're labuan they're playing the playing around.
Allah says, Do you not consider that when the day comes?
It may come to you while you are playing, while you are just in reflect, forgetfulness, or unaware.
So when the world ends, brothers and sisters, it will be a time where the majority of the people of the world are going to be in lost would forgetfulness, roughly meaning unaware, too busy with imaginations and illusions and things that ideas they've made up.
People will be busy in the world of music, what do I say music, because the music has an extraordinary effect on the mind in the heart.
People listen to it, to get out of misery and sadness and get out of the reality of life. But it doesn't take them towards good, doesn't take them towards God doesn't take them towards the Quran is taken towards going and doing, you know,
good deeds, they'll just do what the song tells them to do.
If it's love, the live love, if it tells them about death, they'll probably commit suicide if it tells them about Satanism or gang worship, say, whatever the song tells them. They start living.
Some people are living in a world of money. So they try to bring up all this money and try to live in it. They're not hafla
they want to forget about death. So they're busy with luxury entertainment and all of that stuff. And others are busy with other things, addicted to drugs, addicted to desires of their own. The point is, Allah says the last hour will come when people are in that ruffler they're too busy to some type of illusion in this world.
That makes them
unaware of why they're here as a temporary, and Allah says in the Quran, about these types of people
to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when the Prophet tried to call them and teach them and he would tell them please listen to me, I want to save you. And a lot of them wouldn't listen. Allah said to him, the following verses further Rumia Guna laietana
Why will hear him
let them eat. And let them entertain themselves and let them play.
And let false hope delude them and let their hopes of whatever the ideas are. Let it dilute them, let it take over their minds for a little temporary while for Sophia lemon. At the end of it, they're soon going to come to know the reality it's going to face him. It's going to grab them it's going to face them right in the face and they can't run away from it. So law says let them eat and drink let them entertain themselves, let them play let them be in a lawsuit. However they are let them and Allah says we will he will amend and let hope
Busy then what's hope? Hope is good in Islam, Allah tells us have good hope in Allah have good hope in his mercy. Well, that's not the hope that the Quran is talking about saying, Let hope meaning they've made up their ideas, they don't want to learn, they don't want to hear about heaven and hell, they don't want to hear about death, they don't want to hear about God, they don't know what he's talking about those who follow their desires. And so they begin to feel or they begin to enter or fill their life with business of other things. Hope for, let's say, I don't know, to be rich in the future hope to
be this or be that or receive this will receive that in this world.
Hope to live longer. Hope to just keep going. And let me give you an example. I'm sitting in this room one time, and they're in a work area.
And he this person, he says, Oh, you know, look at talking, I'm gonna we're going to retire, you know, you're talking about retirement and superannuation and all that stuff. It's Panama. What is it probably about 40 years old, saying, you know, can't wait and have the retirement when we're 60 years old, then we retire. And he goes, it's scary. And then and then, you know, they were talking about it and saying things like, oh, but you know, but you know, life expectancies, you have 7080 years old, if you're healthy. So it's in another 20 years or 25 years more after retirement. It's a long time, you know, you get to and this person is having this hope when he doesn't even know what's
going to happen to him tomorrow. Allah says, Let hope delude them Jani. don't practice your deen, don't come to a closer to a loss mentality, keeping with your with your bad desires, because you have this false hope that you're still going to live for longer. Later on, you repent later on, you'll become a good person. Later on, you'll busy yourself with all these things later on later on. For now, you're still young, they're still young.
will hear him will m and this is what it means let you know this hope of where you going to still live longer later on later on later on. Let that busy them. And really, Allah is just a business. The shaitan is just visiting these people, how many people death came to them like that, while they're still had that hope, at the age of 20? g age of 30, the age of 15. And it's still saying
when I'm 70 when I'm 80.
And there's this cultural idea in my culture and about your culture that had should be done when you're 60 or 50, or 70.
What's this? How do you know you're gonna live to them?
is compulsory at any time, like any other compulsory act, like your prayers, like a fasting.
So this minus signs in this world,
come to people while they are in ruffler.
And he's the one of the minus signs that people begin to drift off or socialize lm said people will begin to busy themselves with store
And imagine if imaginative tales.
And I begin to make up imaginative tales to the point where people will begin to question if there is an existence of a god.
That's a hadith.
What does this mean? really look at our state today. A lot of people in the movie industry is growing huge.
Now people are burning CDs and movies. And there are more and more I mean, then ask the Muslims as non Muslim experts who talk about
the lifestyle of people these days look at it.
People are more inside of home than outside. Children are more on the television than outside getting physical.
Ask your parents how physical they used to be outside. And now it's more indoors. In front of that TV. LCD screens are getting bigger and bigger plasma TVs you can see it.
People are focusing on the quality of what they want to see in here.
You go to the store, and you don't know what to buy. You think I'm going to spend $300 on a TV, you end up spending $4,000. Why? Because this TV has a slightly better picture than this TV, or this TV has got a slightly higher resolution than this TV. What I'm trying to say is that one of the minus signs of the last hour is that this world of entertainment, this illusion that we want to live in, has become a priority in a lot of people's lives. Really, am I wrong? So inside this, this World of Illusion, and the TV has become a World of Illusion. And then they want all the nice stereo system around them. The ones little tweeters, they get the ones that bring out the other noises they get as
if you're living in and want to live outside of the realm of this world. I want to get out of this world. It's true. And I want to live outside of this world. But I want to live in it. It's another form of intoxication if you like but on a smaller scale. Now if you can monitor it and manage it, it's okay inshallah I'm not telling you to be one of those Muslims who
I think I'm weird now but telling you that, use it in a halal way. But try and don't be extravagant. And I just want you to realize that it can really get people addicted to all these things.
They're running away from this world. And we aren't getting into that hope of illusions. And when you watch these people, these people who are watching all these movies and everything, movies are now dictating what people think and believe.
I mean, I've heard young people say, to me, this new form of counseling, which I have to know, I've never counseled this way before, we're liars. It's only in the past year, students and young people telling me what if
there is another world? What if there is another reality? What if, what if they don't know what they're talking about? But these imaginations, especially in movies, have made people think about other things that could possibly they said, they make up their imagination, as long as they know that other people are thinking like them, they think he is a possibility. It's nice to think like that, it's nice to think that when we die, we become ghosts, and we just roam around the world.
It's nice, you know, we're just a ghost and then you walk towards the end of the tunnel is a light there and, and parrot, and there's heaven on the clouds and all those things, and
I don't know, Lord of the Rings, and, and
I don't know six cents, and
I don't know You name it, all these other imaginations.
The world of zombies,
and so on. So these are the minus signs. And now, even some, a lot of people are questioning whether there really is a god
my brothers and sisters in Islam, among the I'm just mentioning the most significant minus signs that we are encountering now, and a lot of us are living and we don't even realize it.
And other minor signs is that just in general, the balance there is an imbalance in the whole world imbalance in societies in balancing morals, imbalance in ideologies and methodologies in balance in nature, like imbalance in environment, you could see it, global warming is one of them. But on a more subtle scale, the imbalance of our morals.
Look at it.
Look at how much shame has lost its value.
And it's all about it depends how you look at it, they say.
I see it this way you see it that way? I see that. marrying a dog and calling up my wife is a normal thing. You see it as not good. That's okay. We can still be friends.
Yeah, okay. You can still be friends. Well, what's this? Are we human beings? Or what are we now anymore?
The other day this person?
I said to him, Look, we're human beings and we exist. Then it goes to me Hold on. How do you know we actually exist?
You know, we exist.
And it comes up with these theories.
hamdulillah We ask Allah to keep us sane.
Then you got people who believe that wearing clothes only should be when you're cold.
Or when you're sick, or just to look good. Otherwise, you should take them off.
And I think that we're crazy for wearing clothes, because God created us naked
to this insanity.
Then I have Ms. sexuals.
A few years back
the world look negativity against homosexuals.
What's happened now in the past 10 years.
They think you're the crazy one. If you speak against it. You're like, You're crazy. You're not then you. You've got a psychological problem.
The other day I was heard about I mean, someone was telling me about this.
Miss Universe, I think America us which came from us MC universe, how do you know? Okay, Miss Universe. And she was saying she was asked about homosexuals, gay people. And she said, I think it's unnatural.
tabloid papers, everything went against Miss Universe says they're unnatural. She's got a she has to go back and retrieve what she said. And she came up and said, Look, if if I ruin it, you want me to respect your values. You got to respect mine in any way. Your own President agrees with what I'm saying. Obama, President Obama also said in front of the public that I don't agree with homosexuality, it's unnatural, but look at the world.
It's like you're crazy now.
The role of men and women have completely changed. I'm not talking about men helping women or women helping men I'm talking about complete transformation.
The children take their friends closer to their heart than their own father. This is one of the highlights.
The girl grows up and the boy to feel like they are the masters of their mother and their father but especially the mother, but also salamati dilemma Torah better the woman gives birth to her mission to her master, girl or master boy.
Because the woman is the mother is weakened so they boss her around disobedience of parents in rage. handler among the Muslims is not it's getting worse but it's not that bad as much as those who are who don't have a way of life at all the religion of Allah subhanaw taala they burn their parents beat their parents up. I swear by Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala. That only about from what I'm trying to be precisely about a week and a half ago, I received a phone call from a Muslim who tells me
I want to kill my brother because he keeps beating my mother up. Every time it comes is 40 year old 3738 year old animal who comes in and beats his mother up but the other day she said he bought four liters of orange juice on her head. And she was asleep because he's sick and tired of caring for it. So he's meant to be a carer and he's getting paid. He's getting paid from the government to be her carer. And she says he's my son. I don't want to put an intervention order on him. I don't want him to go into prison.
bruises on her legs on her body from this son and he said to her the other day. I can't wait until you die. So
for us? Oh, Sam told us about these signs. He said last I will not come until children will begin to children as in older ones, will begin to curse their own parents.
Among the minus signs as well
is that the trustworthy people are no longer trusted. And the untrustworthy people are given positions of responsibility and the people are placed in their hands.
The liar is believed and the believer is the liar we live in a world of absolute confusion brothers and sisters are also as Assalam said with the with the truth seems false in the false sense truth and you don't know what's what, when Muslims fight each other. And he said when that day comes, avoid them both. Even if you have to live alone on a mountain surviving on roots of trees.
fitten Kakuta Amina Lima, Lima, basically lots and lots of confusion and mischief, morally, ideologically and physically. And he said, Russell's Assalam, Kakuta, Minh and lilliam of limit as if you are standing a dark night, and there are dark clouds above you, you don't know what it holds. And then he said you'll submit origin domain and William C Cafiero, the person wakes up in the morning a believer. And in the evening, he's a disbeliever, William C mcmunn. And whisper who Cafiero goes in the evening a believer and in the morning is a disbeliever. In other words, I also saw send them is telling us that people lose their faith immediately, very quickly. And we see this
happening now, with the internet, getting more and more famous and popular. And people's communication can be a good thing. But the communication has caused people who ever had a doubt in their head, they find that 1000s millions of other people have got the same doubt. And they feel more comfortable with that doubt afterwards. And for example, a lot of youngsters who
I don't want to, I don't want to give back. I don't want to give bad examples because we have youngsters here. But the point is,
because of this global communication, the majority of the people have used it in a bad way, in a very bad way. And it become addicted to things that we could never become addicted to a few years back before the internet came.
addictions to lust, addictions,
like real addictions, like like drugs and alcohol. They don't want it. They know it's bad. It's ruining their life, but they can't stop it.
And it's happening now and youngsters are becoming
there's a Muslim gay society in America now and in London. And this one's just developed in Sydney and a Muslim lawyer woman defended them to establish Muslim gay organization. I don't know what they're called, but they're in Sydney
and slowly in Melbourne now.
I don't like talking about it because you know, the the notion that people start getting ideas but
it's become so bad everyone knows about it.
The point is, that's what's happening.
The minus signs are becoming flourishing.
Is there a god? is Islam really the right word? Of course it is. But ignorance has become so bad. It also hasn't told us when ignorance will be everywhere, and the scholars will die more and more.
Right to the point where the final end of the science minor and major is that the Quran itself will be lifted off the earth
will no longer be in the hearts or the minds of the Hadith, or Susana that the Quran is lifted
out from all the pages or if there is still internet, then it'll be out of the out of the pages out of the minds, and he won't be taken away like you've memorized it will be taken away. No, it's with the deaths that happens and next generation does not practice the Quran.
And when you don't practice it, you don't memorize it.
You probably memorize it, but you'll forget it why the Quran is not there to memorize like a cookie.
Because you'll let go of it like that straightaway. The Quran is memorized in practice. And that's how you remember it. Even if you don't know much of the Quran, once you practice its meanings, you will always refer back to the Quran.
And so the Quran will be gone because people will no longer refer to it anymore. Now, it also says I'm told us there will come a time when among the minus signs is that people will say will reject Hadith and will only accept the Quran they'll say between you and i is the court and if it's in there, I'll take it if it's not in there. I don't believe it.
He said this hadith and then what's going to happen after that, then the Quran will be rejected. Now the Hadith which is the our second of the primary sources, then the first the primary source, which is the core and also be gone. Look at us today.
We find in a Muslim homes Hamlet, there's a lot of children who memorize. But do we put it in practice? Do we teach them this meaning?
hamdulillah send them off to Pakistan good and send them off to India to memorize the Quran. Okay, good. But memorization without understanding will benefit nothing.
Many of them came back.
And where are they? I don't want to say
for last month, Allah tells us he sent the Quran down to guide.
Among the minus signs is that there will be people who will falsely claim that their profits today everywhere.
The latest one that I know of is the moments john smith, lives in America is meant to be a prophet, why is he a prophet or he wrote a book, he wrote a book that makes him a prophet. And he has all good things in it.
And many others it was his other prophets that any anyone can make a religion up I guarantee every one of you over here if you want to make a lot of money, and you don't fear a lot you want to you want to do that every one of you here has an opportunity to make millions just make up an idea and publicize it and you'll have followers you will have followers. While they'll have follows anything just make up anything.
Hello already got followers of those who worship him the cow, those who worship the sun, those who worship Satan. Those are worship men. There are those who worship human the genitals of human beings as well are those who worship the ants and the insects and they worship whatever.
You can have your own followers.
This few years back they put on the news of this man who said he's a prophet. He made
poor miserable youth lives gone they committed suicide waiting for aliens to come and take them while they're waiting for aliens I got you have to suicide if the witness room they've got their luggage ready. Remember that one? And the aliens are gonna come and take him?
Where are they gonna take him? I don't know.
The minus signs continued.
When the major signs come, the minus signs are still going and the minus signs are getting worse and worse.
To the point where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, ignorance will be so bad
that the knowledge of Islam was so narrow
that the Muslims who have any knowledge will remember one word. La ilaha illa Allah Hafiz Johann Abbe nangia they learned off the ancestors
of the fathers and father and it may be not very long ago, maybe second or third generation but then turn off their father and grandparents. And the companion said yeah, Rasul Allah and what will this do for them? Just the word let you know in the law, no practices, they don't have to pray. They don't have to read the Quran, nothing in the law, but they know its meaning. Yeah. And so he, he said to him in and narratology him in and out on Shimon and I said we will save them from the fire three times, etc. The point is that there will come a time when a Muslim be so ignorant yet, if you hold on to that one word properly, you're still intergender. So this is an indication that a Muslim
quality, not quantity, not quantity.
Because of the lack of time, I'll just go briefly on some of the major signs next week, inshallah we'll continue on. But some of these major signs just very quickly that will happen
is that the world will get into a huge battle, a huge World War, other than the world war one and World War Two. Some scholars in in assume that world war one and two were those, but the descriptions don't fit it because it will be a fight purely between Muslims and the Christians, which is probably a good reasonable argument that World War One was that because it was really between the Europeans and the Muslims, it was the drop of the filler, the Ottoman filler for the earth many, which was a Muslim, he left
and they, they lost it. But the signs of the battle that I'm talking about is that the Muslims win it. So Allah Harlem, and it could be that world war one started and the end of May and this battle is continuing till today, until the day comes when Muslims will be victorious and they are loners, or it could mean that the big battles will come in one time. And the prophet SAW Selim said
that there are a common among
the nations of the world will gather against you come here today to enter cassata just like beasts gather to strip an animal to eat it away. They fight for it. Call our national bacon Latin Yama even Rasul Allah, they asked him a messenger of God are we going to be a small amount that time is that way they'll all gather against us call Allah well Kathy Rouen Well, I can oh thank
you are many but like the bubbles
that result from a wave that hits the shore.
Sounds like for the asked why? said because your hearts begin to cling to the world and hate to die in the cause of God.
And we find this today that the nations have gathered at the moment we are in an ideological war, but there will also be a physical water come nuclear weapons are not made for nothing. They are made to be used and they will use before they're going to be used again.
My brothers and sisters will continue Sharla next week, just Camilla Ohio. Heather was on the Long Island ebina Mohammed wasapi A Jemaine what hamdulillah
