00:03:45--> 00:04:41

There is a concept that exists in this day and age during this time. And this concept is abbreviated into a word that is known as FOMO. FOMO stands for fear of missing out or fear of missed opportunity. So many people, many Muslims, many human beings, they will do things just so they can fit in, just so they don't miss out. They have to have this app, they have to buy this. They have to have that they have to sign up for this because they don't want to be missing out. And then Subhanallah The question is, who are the ones that are truly missing out? Who are the ones that are missing out on Baraka in their lives? Who are the ones that are missing out on divine guidance that

00:04:41--> 00:05:00

Allah has Zoa gel is the one that's always guiding you through and towards that which will bring about ease towards that that will take you out of hardship. And so Subhanallah these people who are not pursuing the

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

path that Allah subhanahu Attala has instructed us to follow and really just following their desire to a very large extent, they are the middlemen, they are the deprived ones. So, in sha Allah Who Tyler over the next few moments, I just want to share a list of the most deprived people are some of the most deprived people here on Earth.

00:05:28--> 00:05:31

When it comes to grouping up people,

00:05:32--> 00:06:29

there are different types of groups. There are those who enjoy success in this world, and they enjoy success in the hereafter. They are the fair isn't they are the ones who are successful. Allah azza wa jal says, les yester we, as Hubble Nari was Hubble join us Hubble Jannetty, who will fat his own, Jilin, Illa, who are El Camino, that those who Allah subhana wa Taala says the residents of the fire cannot be equal to the residents of Jana. Only the residents of Jana will be successful. That's it. Allah azza wa jal says for Manitoba alHuda. Financial Bill Lu, when I asked that whoever follows My Guidance for Manitoba who Dahlia fella will, this person will not go astray. And the scholar said,

00:06:29--> 00:06:41

This is in reference to this worldly life, when I Yeshua and he will not suffer meaning in the hereafter from the moment he dies from the grave moving on to the Day of Judgment.

00:06:42--> 00:07:31

Then there is the group of people who they have wealth, they have money, they have status, but you find these people they are miserable. Allah azza wa jal says about these people, woman out of the UN victory for in nila humeri Schatten banca that whoever turns away from my vicar from my remembrance, anything that allows you to remember Allah, for in Allahumma, Schatten Dunker, this person will have a wretched, a very miserable life. So you see this person, he has a very toxic family. He has issues all the time maybe with his relationships, maybe with his wealth, and many other areas of life. Then there are those people who are losers who lose out in the dunya and they lose out in the akhira.

00:07:31--> 00:08:15

about them. Allah azza wa jal says Wamena Nursey menyambut Allah, Allah Herf that there are those who worship Allah on the edge there on the border. For in Asaba who Hyaluronic maybe, and if this person is touched by goodness is it feels safe, he feels reassured. We're in a saw but who fit now? We're in Asaba to fit neptunium caliber. I love what he has here a duniya well Acura but when that person is struck with a calamity with a hardship, this person turns on his face. He probably turns to disbelief. He probably says things that are haram that are unwarranted that bring about the displeasure of Allah azza wa jal

00:08:16--> 00:09:07

and Allah azza wa jal says the Lika who will who saw Ron will move in and that is the manifest loss that is the absolute loss. So the question is, what are the actions and the behaviors that every Muslim should be thinking about and fearing that they miss out on the opportunity of those actions? Who are some of the most deprived Muslims who are the macaron from amongst the most deprived people are those who do not pray. The ones who are not praying from amongst the most deprived of people deprived is the one who does not pray, and Subhanallah when the more than says hi yah, Salah Hey, Island fella, come to Salah Come to success for that means success. And so the scholars they said

00:09:07--> 00:09:50

that success here is in reference to achieving much of that which you desire. And that includes being protected from a lot of that which you feed. So if you want to be truly a successful person, the successful person who is the one who's praying, and consequently Allah azza wa jal is blessing him from His bounties, and he's being protected from much of the things that he doesn't want in his life. So Salah is really at the heart and the backbone of this Deen. It's the first thing that we're going to be asked about. It's the act of worship of all the acts of worship that was legislated in the heavens, apart from all other acts of worship that were legislated on Earth. And subhanAllah

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

given that we have now entered into the school year, and many of our children are going to school, you see what we do Subhanallah for those children who are

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

are at an age of praying as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said command your children to pray at seven. And you know discipline them for it when they turn 10. So especially if you have children at the age of 10, and they are going to school and you're waking up your child to go to school, but you're not waking up your child to go and pray fidget, what are you teaching your child? You're teaching your child that school is more important than salah. That's the reality. Because if Salah was so important, why aren't you waking me up, ma'am? Why aren't you waking me up that for the salah. That is the most important issue, or Salah, the first thing we get asked about on the Day of

00:10:45--> 00:11:21

Judgment is Salah, Salah is the connection between a ad and between the rub. So if you are not praying, there's a missing link. And then when you have a missing link with your wife, with your husband, with your children, with your parents, and you're not praying and you're wondering, why am I not connected? Maybe it's because you're disconnected to Allah azza wa jal Have you expect baraka and connection with the people around you. And Allah subhanahu wa taala instilling love, in the hearts of people, the closest people to you, towards you because

00:11:22--> 00:12:14

you are labeled Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala is mocha Laban Kulu he is the turn of the hearts, if Allah azza wa jal is not in the core of your heart, and how you know that Allah is in the core of your heart, is how you treat your Salah. If Allah subhanho wa Taala is in the core of your your heart, then insha Allah everything else that your heart loves, will be will have baraka and have blessing. But if Allah azza wa jal is not in the core of your heart, and you have a competitor to Allah azza wa jal, in the core of your heart, then you run the risk of causing injustice to everything else that your heart is connected to. And whatever you place in the core of your heart

00:12:14--> 00:12:44

may end up being your greatest source of pain and misery. In this dunya, Walla, Walla, Walla, Quwata, illa biLlah. Deprived or those who are not making a serious and a sincere effort to maintain good relations with his parents, and with his relatives, as it is known as Burel, Valley time, being dutiful, towards your parents,

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:12:48--> 00:13:17

he mentions a very remarkable Hadith and inspiring Hadith. And he said, whoever is pleased to have his provision, Yanni his wealth expanded, who doesn't love to have more money, more wealth that they can use on their family use for the sake of their era, whoever is pleased to have his provision expanded, and his lifespan extended.

00:13:19--> 00:13:27

Living a longer life or a life that's filled with quality life. Let him keep good relations with his family

00:13:29--> 00:13:37

deprived from the sweetness of having good friends, who remind them of the hereafter.

00:13:38--> 00:13:41

So having good friends is very, very important.

00:13:42--> 00:14:26

Because Allah subhanahu wa Tiana says Aquila, oh, yeah, we may even bow to whom labeled in Aldo in LA Moutoku. That close friends, your buddies on this earth, your Akela they are going to be enemies to one another on that day, meaning the Day of Judgment, except for them what to clean, except for those who have Taqwa. SubhanAllah. So we need to choose our friends wisely. And we need to really start to think about those friends that are detaching us from the purpose of life that can lead to our misery. As Allah azza wa jal says, We're young Maya Ogbu Valley more Isla de

00:14:27--> 00:14:45

yaku. Ya later need to have to model Rasul de Sevilla. Yeah, where you let her lay tiny lamb at Turkey for lernen Haleakala Nakoda Ebola Annie Annie decree Bader is any worker in a shape on lil insert Jihad ruler.

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

Here the volume the oppressor will be biting on both of his hands. Both not just one but both of his hands Yeah, Abdullah limit the volume is the one who not only oppressed

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

as others but he oppresses his own self by not doing what Allah azza wa jal has commanded you. Oh my Apple Valley more Isla de and he will say, yeah later Anita has to Marisol Isabella yeah I wish that I took with the messenger the path of the messenger. Whoa to me, I wish I didn't take such and such as a friend. Your friends are like your lip lift, they can either take you up or bring you down. A Sahib will set him your friend can bring you this way can bring you that twin.

00:15:36--> 00:16:06

And so, as the saying goes, tell me who your friends are. And I will tell you who you are. It's so important to ensure that we have good friends deprived is the one who is not following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the sunnah of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam contains many, many hidden gems, those which are apparent and those which are we're still discovering with, with research,

00:16:08--> 00:16:58

with science with studies and analysis. There are many examples of this. Let's share a few from amongst the most important sunnah is when it comes to our worship. So for example, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said about the two units of sunnah before the budget. He said the Rakata the two units, Al Fajr hylden Mina dunya. Well, my fear that the two Sunnah of the budget is better than all of the dunya and what is in it? And so Subhanallah The question is, are we praying the Sunnah prayer, I enjoyed the Allahu anha Allah. She said she never saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pray a prayer that is more quick than the two units of Fajr before the fall of

00:16:58--> 00:16:58

Fudger.

00:16:59--> 00:17:49

He prayed them quickly. So the Ideal Muslim doesn't miss turn doesn't turn the Sunon into missed opportunities, but he makes a conscious effort to pray the Swinnen which are beneficial for him or for her. In Sahara Buhari. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, near an attorney Maha Boon fee Hema cathedral Mina nurse, a Sahara Well, Farah, that there are two blessings that many people are deceived into losing any they lose out much because they're not adhering to these and doing the things that will bring about and safeguard these two blessings. And they are a Sahel Farah, good health and free time, and so deprived are the ones who are wasting their time. And today, in this

00:17:49--> 00:18:35

day and age, we have so many distractions, through social media, through socializing. So it could be that we're wasting time as a result of face to face socializing. Or it could be that we're wasting time always scrolling on our phones, we need to be more disciplined individuals not wasting that time, but using that energy. And that time to please Allah to be at the service of our family, to spend time with our children to spend time in the community and making contributions for our dunya and for our effort. And then deprived of the ones according to this hadith, the ones who are not taking care of their health.

00:18:36--> 00:19:32

This is very important in this day and age. Because today we see that at the root cause of much of today's health related issues, is not really making a sincere effort to learn and perhaps unlearn and relearn about the contributors towards optimal health. Today, we have high rates of cancer. We have diabetes, high rates, heart disease, viral infections, depression, auto immune chronic pain, and the list goes on. And these are coming about a lot to do with our lifestyle choices. So we need to remember that a lot of the things that we're doing are going against the Quran and the Sunnah. For example, Allah azza wa jal says you're a Johann nasil Kulu Mina Phil Aldi, halamka, yerba, ALLAH

00:19:32--> 00:19:59

addresses mankind yeah a Yohannes people could know me my fill out eight from what is on the earth that is halal. And then hamdulillah as Muslims, the majority of us we have that we've done that well. We always look for halal, the halal label the ingredients Alhamdulillah your bill al Amin, but the verse never ended there. He says halal and by either a by him is that which is good. That which is wholesome

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

for that, which will benefit your body. So if you're reading ingredients that are very, very foreign and you start to read a lot of numbers, the question is, is that really about you? Is that really good? Is that doing you, your body much good? Because it's really important to understand that to be worshiping Allah to be making contributions to the community and for our extra, we need to be in good health, we need to have energy, how are we going to have energy when our health is not good? So let's make more of an effort in sha Allah Huhtala when it comes to our health, such as eating right, even Subhanallah stress, eliminating stress through I've gotten sober he will miss that stress is

00:20:40--> 00:21:21

one of the causes of some of the leading problems that we have. So it's important to do the avocado Sabha. Well, Messiah, you're depriving yourself of good health and not being stressed and depressed, because you're not saying I've got like Bismillah he led the layup to Roma's Mahisha you can fill out the wall if somebody were who was saying your limb or Allahumma in your local alpha will I fear for dunya will occur until the end of the day and the Hadith. These things are there to protect us prevention is better than cure. So it's really important to remember this sleep is very important. Yes, and be so Allahu alayhi wa sallam would sleep after Isha. So it's really important to start to

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

really follow these mandates and instructions and guidance from the Prophet sallallahu. Ala he was

00:21:28--> 00:21:43

deprived is the one who lacks Rama towards the creation or when they be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said a Rahi Munna your hammer hammer Rahman. Your hammer woman fill out the your hammer Command V summer

00:21:44--> 00:22:30

wa or Seneca, Illa Ramadan, Delilah Amin, and we did not send you commission you a messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam except as a mercy to all of mankind, our teachings, any teaching that you come across in Islam, any teaching behind that there is Rama, there is right there is mercy. So the question is, are we having mercy towards our spouse, towards our husband or wife, towards our parents, towards our children, towards our work colleagues, as an employer? Are you having alarma towards your employees? Are you having Rahama towards your neighbors and the people around you? Or are you going to be from amongst those deprived of Rama and the blessing of Rama deprived is the one

00:22:30--> 00:22:38

who doesn't his express his gratitude towards Allah azza wa jal who doesn't show his sugar towards Allah azza wa jal? He's ungrateful.

00:22:39--> 00:22:40

And

00:22:41--> 00:23:27

Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, What is the Astana rock Bukom let in Chicago tumulus either Nico, while in Kaffir tomb, in other Abhilasha did. And remember, when your Lord proclaimed, if you are grateful, I will certainly give you more Subhanallah when you show your gratitude by giving back to the community, by giving for the sake of Allah, Allah is going to compensate you, Allah is going to give you more. So Subhanallah this is something that we need to remember. Deprived are those who are engaging in major sins and kabbah. Like what in this day and age, like for example, unfortunately, we have Muslims who are taking drugs. We have Muslims who are dealing drugs, we have Muslims who are

00:23:27--> 00:24:14

drinking alcohol, transporting alcohol, engaging in ribber, engaging in interest based loans, engaging in gambling, engaging in Zina and fornication and adultery. So, if anyone is doing these, these major sins, then this person is not only harming his hereafter if he doesn't repent, and seek repentance from Allah azza wa jal and put a stop to this, but he is also harming his dunya Allah azza wa jal says, Well, now I saw Abba commend musi button for be Makassar but a deacon, that whatever of misfortune befalls you, is due to what your own hands have earned, where you are for and Kathir. And He pardons much. So you Subhanallah you find yourself maybe because of your sin that

00:24:14--> 00:24:54

you've undermined and you think maybe I'll live to an age whereby Allah will forgive me, I'll ask for repentance and Allah will forgive me, but you're missing the point. Because whatever of misfortune has been that's befalling you now, be it. The misery that you have in your relationship, be it the misery that you have with your children, be it as a result of your health, be it as a result of your wealth and your business not doing well. It could well be from a sin that you looked at it as being high in Oahu or in de la Who are they? What that's a bona who Hainan? Well who are and Allah He of the deprived is the one who does not forgive others. And I want to share the story.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

There was a scholar by the name of Massoud Mohammed Al Hamadani.

00:25:00--> 00:25:49

And he was from the good people from the past. And whenever he met anyone who wronged him, he used to say the past shouldn't be mentioned. We shouldn't mention the past. That was his quote, he would forgive for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, and he passed away. And someone saw this man in a dream. And it was said to him, What did Allah say to you? He said, Allah, He said to me, Omus route, the past shouldn't be mentioned. And he ordered the angels to send him into Jannah. This is the power of forgiving others. And putting our pride aside, putting our egos aside, deprived is the one who on the Day of Judgment will say, Yeah, late any attempt to look at

00:25:50--> 00:26:10

the one who will say I wish I had done something for my higher for my true life. He's saying it in the hereafter. What does that mean? That means the true life is the hereafter. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bless us all with the good end of colocar we have stuff for Allah Hello, Avi, Malia, we're looking for stuff euro in the who are 409

00:26:17--> 00:26:31

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala Medaka ala Nabina Muhammad. While early he was happy here at mine. The deprived My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam is the one who does not repent to Allah azza wa jal.

00:26:32--> 00:27:22

The reality of repentance is to have regret, to have Nedum over what was committed in the past and to disassociate to detach yourself from it in the here and in the now. And third condition is to resolve and to intend never to return to it in the future. Why be from amongst the deprived, when you can be from amongst the successful. Why be from amongst the miserable when you can be from amongst the winners? The fair isn't? Why be from amongst those who are going to regret when regret it's too late. When you can be from the prosperous ones and the happy ones? Yes, we can go back and change the beginning. Or what's happened to us in our past or what we've been through. But we can

00:27:22--> 00:28:08

start now. And we can create a better future for ourselves by the will of Allah subhanahu wata Allah. Allah azza wa jal says Ilam and turba where am Anna? Well, I'm Isla smiley Han for hola Eukarya Toluna Jeanetta Wella Eufaula Munna che s for those who repent, believe and they do good.
