00:01:54--> 00:02:00

so inshallah we'll start with the verse of the Holy Quran that deals in detail with

00:02:28--> 00:02:33

modus operandi of allows harmattan nothing is difficult for Allah subhanaw taala

00:02:35--> 00:02:48

Allah and Allah says tells us in Surah Al Hajj which is the 22nd surah of the Quran. Allah talks to us in Surah verse five, Allah says Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, your nurse

00:02:49--> 00:03:02

in control V Ray bien bien mineral bathy Ross founder says O mankind Allah This is everybody. Muslim, non Muslim, everybody. Allah says all mankind. If you are in any doubt,

00:03:04--> 00:03:12

mineral bothy as to the resurrection. For inner follow up inner coming to Robin Whaley we have created you from dust.

00:03:13--> 00:03:22

That is of course Adam alliser to Salah was created from us. So mommy knows Fatima. Then Allah says then we created you from a note for

00:03:23--> 00:03:27

piece of flesh. Suman Allah.

00:03:28--> 00:03:52

First step, the egg and the sperm of the husband. That is the note for Sumida Alico, then that becomes a small piece of flesh through mommy motiva and it grows. boho Latino radium Chanukah Dino Bina calm and allows one that gives us the stages that the fetus goes through in order to make it clear to us

00:03:53--> 00:03:54

that

00:03:55--> 00:04:39

if you Everything is done in stages, nothing just happens. No. So we may learn from it. Allah says Firstly, it's a sperm. Then there's a leech like clot, clot of blood. Then out of that a morsel of flesh comes partly form nonparty unformed. We know that if you see a picture of the fetus, on the scan, you'll see that if the small it's just a blob, just a blob, maybe you'll see two big eyes and maybe something about about otherwise it's just a big blob and formed in order that we may manifest our power to the last one that says so we may make it clear to you the power that we have supine Allah, the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And because we will to rest in the woman Allah says, I

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

decide who will stay in the womb and complete the nine months, but I will this foreign appointed term or the six months for six months or nine months, then we bring you out as babies and then you get born as a baby. Then foster you that you're ready to age a full stick. Then our last one dresses after then we foster we we feed you we like to grow

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

So you reach full strength, and some of you are called to die before you reach full strength, some of us pass away, and some were sent back to the females old age loss analysis, and others are sent to really very weak to become very, very old. Some people become 100

00:05:19--> 00:05:41

an aunt of mine just passed away in in in Johannesburg, she was 102 years old panel one and you will see what benefits she gets from reaching the age of 102. And allows Pamela says, so that they know nothing. You reach an age where you know nothing, after having done much, we know that

00:05:43--> 00:05:49

and further down, barren and lifeless. So Allah says, just like that, a woman is better,

00:05:51--> 00:06:28

completely better, until the sperm reaches the wall. Then it becomes suddenly sprats, gross, Allah says, similarly with the earth, Allah says, Don't you see the earth is barren and lifeless, paranoid, lifeless. But when we pull out down or rain on it, Allah says mnpt when rain touches the soil, what happens if you stay to life, your parents only certain life and they put forth every kind of beautiful growth in pace is Allah was final water. So a last one, just as a last minute Allah brought us into life from

00:06:30--> 00:06:41

Adam and Adam Smith from gust. So allows for $100 shapes us as I said before in another lecture, allow us to 100 allas workshop is the womb of the mother.

00:06:43--> 00:07:06

When the spring comes and mixes with the egg of the of the of the mother, omelet takes over, and Allah shapes you so we're looking for a habitat for Russia. And that is the shapes you the way he wishes to shape you use the shape of you in. So whatever Allah gives us, when we are born, you grow up. Remember, that was the choice of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:07--> 00:07:19

So this verse thing talks about feebleness he talks about all day, long with and there are many, many verses in the Quran, that deals with old age where you reach

00:07:20--> 00:07:24

a lot harder. For example, it had that balance I should do when you reach I should that Who?

00:07:26--> 00:07:29

webinar hierbei in Asana, you reach

00:07:30--> 00:07:45

the pinnacle of your mental and physical development. 40 or less is when you reach 40 hyperbola buying Asana. When you reach 40 you reach the height of your physical and mental development from the it's a slow downward motion.

00:07:48--> 00:07:51

So some of the scholars say that when old age begins,

00:07:54--> 00:07:55

many of the scholars say well,

00:07:56--> 00:08:05

it's not age and makes you old, you become old when you are old. Some people always say 57 or 55 Thomas 6070 to 100.

00:08:07--> 00:08:10

So last time, they didn't say yes oh they started 40 I'll let you see as your

00:08:12--> 00:08:15

your peak development is at 40.

00:08:16--> 00:08:24

So at 40 you should have made up your mind as to what road you wish to take to gain the pleasure of love's

00:08:25--> 00:08:36

that now no excuses you are now complete. McAuliffe adult Of course you've been adults into you were 15 when you reached adulthood and for a girl 12

00:08:38--> 00:08:39

more or less

00:08:40--> 00:08:44

but 40 is the age where you must sit down and take stock of yourself.

00:08:45--> 00:09:02

Because now it is the road to allows fatherland or open in front of you. And that road leads only one way whether you want to go down that road or whether you don't want to go down the road you will go down that road and that road leads to Allah was kind of

00:09:04--> 00:09:35

unless it's a low level Hanako comin darphin unless it's a created you weak, very weak, you can feed it in over week ladies. Look at the baby when is bonell week that is to my jollibee nub mean by the daffin cola season after the weakness I give you strength, you can walk, talk you grow up to develop muscles and so forth and so on. So my job I mean by the court in Darfur unless it's after I've given you the strength, I give you weakness while shiny button and I give you

00:09:36--> 00:09:48

gray. Give your old age. You have local Masha Allah, Allah says he creates what he wishes to create. Well who Allah Allah, Allah father is all knowing all powerful.

00:09:49--> 00:09:50

So

00:09:54--> 00:09:56

last fall deliang mentions the word shava.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

shava means when they

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

10th grade

00:10:02--> 00:10:10

and some people don't like redness. Some people don't like to be gray they dye their hair. And they

00:10:11--> 00:10:14

if they see a gray they will pull out the gray

00:10:15--> 00:10:21

when it's in the early stages, but what is the Navy so a lot of celeb says about gray hair.

00:10:22--> 00:10:24

The Navy saw salon says

00:10:25--> 00:10:29

Russell's also alumna and nephesh shape first and this has a lump

00:10:32--> 00:10:37

said and prohibited us from removing our gray hair or changing our gray hair into

00:10:39--> 00:10:45

another kind of Paul. Why? Because an evisa salam says in nahu new rule Muslim

00:10:47--> 00:10:56

that the gray is the newer of the Muslim panela. It's a newer light, light shines from the graininess of the hair.

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

And

00:11:05--> 00:11:14

then every solid law so most of what I'm going to do is I'm going to quote a Hadith of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. There are many, many Ayat of the Quran.

00:11:15--> 00:11:21

But this is going to be quite a long session of lectures. So I don't want to

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

lengthen it too much.

00:11:28--> 00:11:32

So I'm going to stick to those very important ahaadeeth that will give us

00:11:36--> 00:11:40

the essence of the other that allows one that gives us

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

if you had that the nadie Salam says

00:11:46--> 00:11:47

and talks about the love of dunya

00:11:50--> 00:11:56

as far as different age groups are concerned, and the last one that talks about the love of dunya for the for the agent

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

for fear their whole interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:12:02--> 00:12:20

amongst their Hadees the NaVi solo Selim says, laser localizable kebele. shad benfit is nothing hope dunya or Tula v saw Salam says, there are two things that remain in the heart of an old person.

00:12:27--> 00:12:31

Oh, do things remain young in the art of no person shall but

00:12:33--> 00:12:37

two things. Hope with dunya the love of the dunya

00:12:38--> 00:12:41

will to run amok and long hope always hoping

00:12:43--> 00:12:47

old people always hope to always people love the dunya.

00:12:49--> 00:13:01

So all people's love of the dunya would consist of having a very comfortable of having enough money, having good health. These are the things that they love of the Dudamel always loved that of the dunya. But that remains all the other things going.

00:13:04--> 00:13:37

Well, Capital One, sorry, to Lana, and our hope because a lot give us Long live and long life and made this image go away. There's always there's always, ever, ever, our life is based on hope, because we know when we feel the weakness of our bodies, that life is draining away. We have to do as much as we can. And if you can just if you can just sit down on your couch and say Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah will have to be lower, low lower,

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

close enough.

00:13:40--> 00:13:42

What are the Corolla?

00:13:43--> 00:13:46

And the vicar of Allah is the best and the best sticker of course.

00:13:49--> 00:14:06

Would you just make recruitment we just think about allows make Toba Sema stuff the last filler because you know this, you will hear about the ages of trovato You know, when a loss Padilla doesn't refuse your tober so the longer you live, the more chances you have to do good and to make Toba

00:14:10--> 00:14:25

and in another Hadees Nafisa Salah talks about the two loves it'll remain in the heart will remain young in the heart of a of an old person is to rule higher long life. He wants to have long life orchestra tomorrow, and he wants to have a lot of money.

00:14:27--> 00:14:36

And this money is not for joy because money is just so you can live a comfortable life and make lots and lots of charity particularly to his to his grandchildren.

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

When he slum looks at

00:14:51--> 00:14:52

human being

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

generally this is the Islamic view of humanity

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

What is the Islamic of humanity?

00:15:02--> 00:15:05

When Islam looks at humanity and human beings,

00:15:06--> 00:15:08

nothing at that agreement.

00:15:10--> 00:15:15

It looks at human beings with a look of

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

honor and a look of

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

generosity.

00:15:22--> 00:15:26

Allah honest us and Allah squander is generous to us we know that

00:15:27--> 00:15:44

honor. What I may use will actually work for him in Levy, oh Dawa, lo fi me being Muslim. And of all the creation of a Lost Planet Allah allows pontal as distinguished humanity by giving him an intellect and understanding

00:15:46--> 00:15:49

which allows founders not placing any of his or the creation

00:15:52--> 00:16:01

and this is what allows Pamela says, naka de la Canal in Serna Fie, Asante aqui, will have created men in the best of shape in the best of forms.

00:16:02--> 00:16:04

And just as Islam

00:16:05--> 00:16:06

looks at

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

a long life, never uttered whatever he said.

00:16:16--> 00:16:18

Islam is a special view of

00:16:21--> 00:16:26

Islam as a special view of old age. We don't have the view that the West as of old age,

00:16:28--> 00:16:36

it has a view of mercy. Last one because as you get older a lot because more and more merciful on the old people,

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

young guru, LA and no insane dude.

00:16:42--> 00:16:47

And allows for Hamilton and looks at him as a very lucky person, a blizzard person.

00:16:49--> 00:16:56

They are no rocked my Dharma Mo, Jude, because time is still running for a person who is alive.

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

And

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

Allah has given him that life so that he may increase his rewards for our last panel.

00:17:06--> 00:17:13

And of course, we know the older we get, the more sincere we become. That's just how life is, no matter who we are.

00:17:18--> 00:17:23

And there are many proofs that tell us that

00:17:27--> 00:17:30

to wish for old age is encouraged by Islam.

00:17:32--> 00:17:43

To look, to look forward to old age and to be old, is encouraged. One must be happy to be old and really enter the Navy so Allah Allah, Allah says in the Hadith,

00:17:44--> 00:17:47

au Nassif, you asked us to harbor

00:17:49--> 00:17:52

which people are the best people?

00:17:54--> 00:17:56

And he replied,

00:17:57--> 00:18:25

No, no, sorry. The Prophet was asked which people are the best people? And the Prophet replied call monk Paula ombre, who has forfeited that person whose life is long and his deeds are good to panela so we're the best person, the old person look what the best people the old people move on unless given Long live and good deeds.

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

Process lmct

00:18:28--> 00:18:48

and then evisa Salas and what the worst people and he said my father, who was on promises and said those people who have been given a long life but with bad deeds, they can't seem to leave off doing of things which allows panatela is not pleased.

00:18:52--> 00:19:01

Nabi sallallahu Sallam even made or for some of his companions they should that they should reach old age they should have a long life

00:19:03--> 00:19:09

if living a long life and becoming very old is not a crime in Islam

00:19:11--> 00:19:25

it's not something bad oh look how old is he? You know and we sometimes say oh no maybe I'll let's take this person away. Because this person is old and the person is suffering No, no, no, no, no. Long life is a gift from allows content. We are not like the West.

00:19:27--> 00:19:42

Who says to practice euthanasia people get too old they can say well, I don't do live anymore. So inject me with something that I will die or take make the choice of rather die. No, no, no. In Islam we must wish to live on and on and on. Why?

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

The nabee salon Lara salami Dora, Allah acfi made Dora for us Ebony Malik. What does it all mean for him? I love him as a creative man who while while other who I'll see ombre who was filler. Let me say sometimes it may drop

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

For

00:20:01--> 00:20:14

Anna's Ebony Malik, Allah, Allah Allah Greece's wealth and increase his children and increase his armor. His life was Fiddler and forgiving.

00:20:16--> 00:20:22

So whenever he saw Salah, we do our mosquito, long, honest, diplomatic.

00:20:23--> 00:20:28

And there's there many people who say that he was the last of the Sahaba, who had passed away.

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

He lived a very long life.

00:20:33--> 00:20:36

And then every sallallahu wasallam

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

tells us

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

that

00:20:45--> 00:20:47

the reason that Ravi Salah

00:20:50--> 00:20:57

made this do and want us to along maybe Sal Sallam said, Men have been Anoop satola, who fear is

00:20:58--> 00:20:59

the nebby Sal Salaam, said,

00:21:00--> 00:21:04

If you wish to have wider risk.

00:21:06--> 00:21:20

In physical illness, how much is enough for you? Don't ask for more. Allah knows and we know. And we have the agent, we know that we can now before we see two plates of food now we don't want to eat food, we just want to bring something. So

00:21:22--> 00:21:35

man, I have a new sort of a risk if you want your visit to be not depend on others. I mean, that is a dream of all people. They want to be financially independent. What must you do to become financially independent?

00:21:36--> 00:21:42

While you ensure a low fee attorney, and if you want to live long

00:21:43--> 00:21:52

fund visit and you want to live long. Without that is the first prize for old people foliar sealer prime then

00:21:53--> 00:21:57

bind family ties, keep your family ties.

00:21:59--> 00:22:18

This is for young people. These niches are not just for old people, because all young people are going to get old it's good that you know these things down so don't say Rama, the chef speaking about oh people I'm going to put the YouTube on for you. No, no, no everybody wants to send the children was Listen, everybody because it affects every single person, every single Muslim.

00:22:24--> 00:22:27

Whenever you saw a lot of sentences, but our thought

00:22:29--> 00:22:35

man ought to have the have the whom in a minute risk. Maybe saw some says a person has been given

00:22:36--> 00:22:39

a share of being gentle to gentleness.

00:22:40--> 00:22:44

So very good thing. And when we get older have the load become more gentle and more gentle.

00:22:45--> 00:22:50

But also to have the woman midriff conferred or to have the whole behavior

00:22:51--> 00:22:57

besides himself under gave you a soft heart, a generous heart. Allah makes you

00:22:58--> 00:23:14

pain for people who are poor, feel the pain. You want to share something with the Rift. rift means softness, softness of art, softness of mannerism, then you've been given the best of this world and the afters panel. If you are

00:23:15--> 00:23:27

you're not a person who has got the best of this world and the oft only the people with them. What is what does it mean to have a soft hard, soft soft for yourself? a softer piece of a soft heart towards others

00:23:29--> 00:23:37

never to complain about you doing too much for others. No. always wanting to do more and more and more

00:23:41--> 00:24:01

than every cell solemn tells us what he says he talks about always nervous. excellencies Amar Amati Medina citied wa sahbihi wa Kalima you Jovi's, that'd be so solemn said the ages of my oma will be between 60 and 70. And few will go beyond 70.

00:24:06--> 00:24:17

So what is what is our standard age what is our age, every age that we will live this from? Six. So if you are us over 60 Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah.

00:24:18--> 00:24:22

If you're over 70, you say Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah.

00:24:26--> 00:24:27

As established

00:24:28--> 00:24:31

the foundation of goodness of people,

00:24:34--> 00:24:35

children must remember.

00:24:37--> 00:24:40

They should not exploit the old parents.

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

They are a must go Yeah, you must go. They must do this. In the 70 years old 80 years at 75 years old exploit the poor parents still the parent can't drive anymore. can't walk anymore. So hang on, don't do that.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

You will not the time you share

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

With your husband or your wife is going to be three to twice the time you spend with your parents. Work it out to

00:25:07--> 00:25:11

work out when your parents died and work it out how many years you're married now.

00:25:12--> 00:25:26

And how many years you actually spend with your parents. Because remember the first 12 years we don't speak with your parents, you speak with your friends and your your brothers and your sisters. Only maybe 16 or 17 realize the value of parents.

00:25:28--> 00:25:43

And then you get married in any age. You spend the rest of your life with your family. So spend more time with your parents don't say well, the owner, the goalie once a week No, no, go every day, every day, that's your Baraka

00:25:52--> 00:25:58

and we need to cooperate as a society in looking after all people. It said our societies don't look after their own

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

institution which is established no institutions for them to exercise institutions for them to meet, you know, should have all these things clubs for all people where they can meet.

00:26:10--> 00:26:33

We don't have a single club, in the whole of Cape Town, where all people can just go to a meet, you're gonna meet somebody, you go to the, to the, to the club, the Muslim club, the salon room, they these people can talk there, people could have lectures there. And it's all for the for the agents heinola all we think about doing for the ages, and stuffing them into an older job on a bed in a small little room until they die.

00:26:37--> 00:26:38

So we are not

00:26:40--> 00:26:44

tackling our responsibilities and doing what the Sharia wants from us.

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

So

00:26:50--> 00:26:56

Islam starts honoring the old person

00:26:57--> 00:27:07

by giving him by making him old, he becomes an old person. So it is not allowed for an old person to want to wish to die, never wish to die.

00:27:09--> 00:27:21

Maybe so Sallam said later Monday, I had to komoot let none of you wish to die. While I'd be mean cobbly it

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

and don't call for it don't make the offeree before it comes.

00:27:29--> 00:27:52

Why? Why mustn't you admit to all and ask Allah for this? Why not? In either murta hadoken in other avenue, because in every circumstance if you that all your good deeds stop that you're behind on login you could have seen if you were still alive tech stops the good good word which you could have done stops, the

00:28:14--> 00:28:19

And you can't move. You can still make you can still mention Allah Allah.

00:28:21--> 00:28:24

And I want to give you an example. beautiful example

00:28:26--> 00:28:26

of

00:28:30--> 00:28:32

00:29:02--> 00:29:03

this these are two ahaadeeth.

00:29:05--> 00:29:10

Both ahaadeeth is reported by Ahmed Mohammed in the humble in his book nerd.

00:29:12--> 00:29:15
