JACK Ma, hi, for joining us. We'll be the first Tuesday in our new year. And as I said, on Friday, where we gave a special program about the new

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

year, it's all about the new year itself is about a time that wherever we are living,

00:00:57--> 00:01:11

usually there is times that I wouldn't say we celebrate, but it is a reminder that the people around us, either they celebrate or they remind us of it. And the new year in the Gregorian

00:01:13--> 00:02:00

calendar is something that half of the world is not all, almost all the world celebrate. And celebration for us as Muslims is a reminder is a reminder and recovered did very well on a Friday, you can go back and listen to it, if you like, is about the new year's resolution. And for me as a Muslim, what does it mean? Does it even exist? This concept and hamdulillah we covered it and today series is related to that. And just I have to say this May Allah reward the sister who actually emailed us last week and she said, if you're going to want to have a topic yet, I would love to see what we should do as Muslims with time, and it came exactly in the right time with hamdulillahi

00:02:00--> 00:02:45

Rabbil aalameen. So what is time? And what is a blessing? And this is actually the title of the today from the three weeks series. So what is time? And what is a blessing? Because we said time is a blessing. And the first question is also going to come to me and to you and where did Where did this title came from? Why time is a blessing. Right? And the answer is we always say is look at the sources. And we as Muslims, there's two sources. There's our Quran and there's a Sunni the main sources I shouldn't say the only it's the main sources. So we have a Quran, the Book of Allah, Santana, and we have the sooner the saying the action, what whatever Swati has sought to sit on did

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

said or he agreed upon.

00:02:49--> 00:03:27

So also he sought to serve in a beautiful Hadith and the Hadith is no hurry actually. And some of you may be familiar with it or no, which only at least know the concept. And he said the following the Hadith was narrated by Satan, Abdullah nobis. And he said, Now I'm attorney, mole woman for him of new Adam, Asahi, wife are all near my turn, to blessings to blessings. The son of Adam does not give them their due right? To our blessings, many people lose them or they incur loss in them

00:03:29--> 00:03:58

to blessings the son of Adam moon, he does not make benefit of it. He does not make profit of it. The word maumoon is actually used in the Arabic language when you don't get your due, right. You say Vala money or walborn and especially in in transactions. And you say you didn't give me my right. So what Ross what his thought was ceramists teaching you and me, he said that is to number one, pay attention to this this.

00:03:59--> 00:04:30

And then he said blessings. He didn't say well, they are first blessings. Then what he is going to teach me I need to look at it as a blessing. So two blessings. And then the son of Adam, you and me, she or he younger old and he said in general he didn't say Muslims didn't know Adam, son of Adam. maumoon in color loss does not give a Jew right does not take benefit of it. And what are these shadows? Oh Allah, what are these two as

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

well for all

00:04:34--> 00:04:45

one for all health and free time. And again, pay attention to this so we can really start thinking free time is a blessing.

00:04:46--> 00:04:54

free time he didn't say time. He didn't say a lock. He said al for all free time. And absolutely it's a blessing.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

Number one because he said it but number two

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

If I can take advantage of it. So this is the first thing we're going to start today that are swatting soar to a sinner in a sound have eternal Buhari. He's teaching me and you that please pay attention. Human beings, there's two things you have it, most of us have it.

00:05:19--> 00:05:35

And most of us, and that's what he said he's generalizing it. He said, we don't take advantage, we not use them for our benefit. In fact, we, they, we, we use them for loss, health and free time.

00:05:36--> 00:05:41

And if COVID 19 didn't teach us anything

00:05:42--> 00:05:47

taught us should have taught us number one, at least aslha

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

being healthy,

00:05:51--> 00:05:55

not afraid of being sick, because that's what COVID is.

00:05:57--> 00:06:01

Or what COVID brought to us a fear of getting positive,

00:06:02--> 00:06:04

a fear of being infected.

00:06:06--> 00:06:23

And that's a blessing of being healthy, that we never looked at it as a blessing. The same as now hamdulillah a lot of human beings have looked at blessing and you are test come back and negative and everybody's they celebrate.

00:06:25--> 00:06:28

Here you are the same way we need to look at the free time.

00:06:29--> 00:07:19

And before I go into the details, what's a blessing? So let's look at the Hadith, what is a blessing Subhan Allah when you look at the definition of a blessing, because these words we use them daily, we use them so casual, that reality reality, we don't even know the meaning of it anymore. We become so used to it, that we don't pay attention to it deep, what is a blessing? Right? And very casually say what a blessing to have you For example, as a friend, what a blessing. I live this what a blessing. My test was negative. What a blessing I have children, what's the word blessing me. And if you look at the dictionary tells you a blessing is a thing, a thing, conductive to happiness, for

00:07:19--> 00:07:27

welfare, it's actually in the encyclopedia. I think something will bring it happiness

00:07:28--> 00:08:13

or welfare in general blessing. Now remember the hadith of Rasul Allah risottos. Health and free time, he said near Matan, it's a blessing. And what is a blessing as a word, it's something it's a thing that will bring happiness and welfare. It's another meaning and you look at the dictionary, it will tell you, it's God's favor, as something very, very common, we use it blessing. And that means I am favored by a lost pantalla. Or it's a gift favored by a wasp panel towel. So it's in general, it's a gift. It's something good, something will bring me happiness.

00:08:14--> 00:08:22

Really. That's what time is. That's what it was what he sort of said I'm saying, near Mata, mata woofie humanoid

00:08:23--> 00:08:34

to blessings, the son of Adam, in core loss in them, a SA Health and for all free time. Health, a lot of us

00:08:36--> 00:09:34

we sweat again, again in specially in these days, we know what's now we know what does it mean to be healthy? But free time is the question. Free Time and the time we need to look at it. Now look at what a mom of melkonian said something beautiful, beautiful about human being time and his life. And he said the following. And I am here quoting him and translating Actually, he said it's an Arabic. He said the time. The for the time. The human being in reality has his age, age, age. In reality, It's time. It's time. So if you're celebrating your birthday, you're going to look back and says, whoa, I had lived for 30 years. 40 years 70 at the time, in fact is the human being age.

00:09:36--> 00:09:44

And it is time the essence of joy for this human being in the hereafter.

00:09:47--> 00:09:53

It's the essence of the punishment in the hereafter. What is he saying?

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

He's saying the a the life of the human being reality is time is time.

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

He lived for 70 at that time, and he said, This time, the age I and you live, is the essence is the recipe is the main content

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

of my eternal happiness in the hereafter. Or when I add the Balaam, Allah protect us all, the essence of punishment there. What does that mean?

00:10:26--> 00:10:46

The time, the blessing that Allah gave me what I use it for the fruit of it will either lead me at the end there to live, a tunnel bless, or will they add the Columbia Law protect us will make us live

00:10:48--> 00:11:20

or make that person be in a severe punishment. That's what he looks at the life of the human being. And the email magnetic Josie is a beautiful thing. And and I'm starting with this, to make you look at time. differently. It's a series of three, probe three programs three Tuesdays, the aim of it is to number one, change the way you and I and all of us look at the time

00:11:22--> 00:12:02

I need you and me to look at the time is something very different. It's not casual is not of course, no, some blessing. It's a blessing. And I don't know how many of us look at time is a blessing. Now why it is a blessing. Because blessing something brings me happiness and welfare. That's what the definition in the dictionary you will find. And Allah Swati sort of Psalm COVID, the blessing that comes with Napoleon. And he described it and he said, because the fruit of what I use the time in this life will bring me the eternal joy.

00:12:05--> 00:12:18

Now, look, what's a man named Josie, another legendary scholar of the hearts when you read his books, panel law, and he said, human being, you and me

00:12:19--> 00:12:20

should know

00:12:22--> 00:12:22

the

00:12:23--> 00:12:25

value of his time.

00:12:27--> 00:12:36

And the value or, and the honor of his time, the value and the honor of his time, he should not waste a minute.

00:12:38--> 00:12:46

He said he shouldn't a second Actually, he should not waste a second, but in what brings him or her closer to Allah.

00:12:48--> 00:12:59

And it in that minutes, does the best. The best that he can do, or she can do in what he says what he says

00:13:00--> 00:13:14

and or what he does. And lets him always bring in good intention in everything he does, without ever being tired or bored of bringing the intention.

00:13:15--> 00:13:17

Let's say this one more time.

00:13:18--> 00:14:12

He said, human beings This is Amanda Lily, Josie said the human being smart people, everybody, we should look at the time always value it. That's number one. I know I have a blessing when I value it. Black example only we have something very expensive treasure, or something very sentimental. My mom gave it to me, or this is from my grandmother, something sent to me. This is from mucker something sentimental, I know the value of it. And I'm so keen on not losing it and taking care of it. That's how we should look at time. Because he said the amount of metal Josie the human being should know the value and the virtue of the time and should never waste a second. What's in

00:14:12--> 00:14:39

something brings him close to Allah. How is that I've come to it. And he said, this is why he should iron you. We should always bring intention in everything we say and do without ever being tired in it. I'll just give you a simple example. So we stay focused, as we say. So you're you're you're taking care of your children.

00:14:40--> 00:14:51

Our mother is changing the diaper. The father is teaching his son or her or his daughter. Right? That's a that's a deed. And that's a time

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

if I follow what ignorable, Josie is telling me if I'm following you number one, a total soiree salatu salam what he told me

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

That's a time. That's a blessing, but I'm doing something, yes, I need to use this something in what blows me close to Allah, then I have valued the blessing. And then this blessing will brings me, goodness in this life and a hereafter. So changing a diaper

00:15:20--> 00:15:54

or teaching my child or taking or driving my child to school, or going to grocery shopping. That's time. Yes, that's what he says, brings your knee brings your intention while you are doing it. And this is something cost us nothing. Nothing is free. But shavon works on us to make us forget the intention because with the intention, the right intention and the intention that's for a law only

00:15:55--> 00:16:08

the right intention and the intention that's for Allah only the ordinary, daily mundane actions that's pleasing to Allah can become an act of worship.

00:16:09--> 00:16:22

What is the difference as the scholars teaches us? What is the difference between ad a and a bad? What is the difference between habit casual, and an act of worship is number one intention.

00:16:23--> 00:16:56

So when I am changing a diaper to my child, my intention is take, you can have way more than one intention in one action. You can say and you feel it and you talk to Allah in it. And you say Allah, this is my child. That's my man. That's that's a trust you put with me. I need to take care of the trust because that's what you told me a lot. That's an intention. That's a good deed. You're a law. I'm keeping that child she or he clean and cleanliness, something part of this Diem.

00:16:58--> 00:17:49

not keeping him clean. The diaper is not clean, the child will be upset and the child will be sad. The child will be crying. I am elevating this harm from this human being. That's another good deed. So in a good deed, and that's what the man Josie is teaching us in a good deed. The most important word is the what I am doing is pleasing to Allah is hell is not something disobedience, there is no corba there is no getting closer to allow something that's not tailored. But I am saying doing my my mundane actions. And he's saying look for the intention. Look for the intention and lets him look for good and I will say intentions not one in everything.

00:17:51--> 00:18:42

It hasn't was remind us and this is related to time to do would cover the topic about the time and the blessing of having time. Or the blessing of changing the nor time to time. And then in the next program. This next part two of the series, we're going to look about details how I'm going to do this in this busy life of mine and yours. But let's look at it first. The subject as a whole. And as an investor. He said the following Yagna Adam in NEMA into em, son of Adam, you are but few days. This is so deep. They are going to Adam, son of Adam. You are but few days. Kula hubba, hubba, Babak.

00:18:44--> 00:18:55

Every time, look at the word every time a day pass every day or you can say this way. Every day that pass part of your life has passed.

00:18:57--> 00:19:19

You have an Adam son of Adam, you are but a few days into my into your days. Doesn't matter how long you live in today's every day that pass. Your life is less. And I had this discussion this afternoon in the office. And I and I said I it really surprised me when people celebrate their birthdays.

00:19:20--> 00:19:30

What are you celebrating? We are celebrating a day, a year or a day or years that passed and I'm getting closer to my death.

00:19:31--> 00:19:53

Reality reality of the thing. I'm not talking about children. I'm talking about adults how we look at things. Because if there is only one reality one, only one thing that is 100% sure in this life. One thing 100% sure in this life is death.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

No one, no one will skip it. Couldn't have seen that.

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

But almost every single soul will taste does a lot of the three times in the quarter.

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

I've seen that

00:20:11--> 00:20:21

every single soul will taste death. So Panama will taste that. So you're going to add them. That's what it has to say you're gonna add them in

00:20:22--> 00:20:30

your few days, your birthdays, everyday pass, part of your life is going

00:20:31--> 00:20:35

back again, time, days is time.

00:20:36--> 00:20:48

And time is a blessing. And most human beings don't give the time it's due right meaning they don't use it to don't look at it as a blessing and they don't use it.

00:20:49--> 00:20:52

In what will bring fruit.

00:20:53--> 00:21:30

one verse in the Quran or chapter in the Quran, which many of us are very familiar, young and old. And it's an oath on las panatela used it. What lasell by the time in Santa Luffy, has worldly human being in a loss in the Medina Avenue, except those who have believed? Well, I'm going to slowly Hack number two, who has done a righteous good deeds, what tawassul will help but also be sober and they enjoy each other, the truth and with patient

00:21:32--> 00:21:38

we all know it. What is Allah saying? Number once an oath will last through by the time

00:21:39--> 00:21:47

in general, whether it's in the Quran, or in our daily life, when I and you use oath.

00:21:48--> 00:22:43

What what is really I'm saying, I am making a point. I'm bringing attention of people to what I am saying, when you say by a law that's that means what you are saying is serious. What you want to tell people is serious. If people is not believing in me when you say By Allah, that means I mean it, all these and then person will call on the oath in the Quran is a whole subject by itself. And Allah have made oath in the Quran with many things, including the Orion itself, including the life of Rasul Allah Salatu was Salam. And he made oath, by the time he made it by time in general, while last he made oath by the night were late. He made an oath by an har, when necessary that agenda, by

00:22:43--> 00:23:00

the day, by the night was Doha, by the specific time was shims by the ruled by the sun will lay by the night. These are all times Why does a lot make an oath with them? Why?

00:23:02--> 00:23:21

Same answer, as I said earlier, because it is very important, you have an ad in your mind to sawn off Adam. You are nothing but few days, one last, by the time, one late by the night, was chumps by the sun.

00:23:22--> 00:23:24

These are all parts of the days.

00:23:25--> 00:23:29

And when Allah made the oath, all the time, what did he tell me?

00:23:31--> 00:23:50

He said, last, that's the oath by the time where it is the answer, because in the Arabic language, oath, our custom, they say our customer job person, there is an oath and there is an answer to the oath by Allah, for example, in our words, and our language in our daily talk, we say,

00:23:51--> 00:24:07

by Allah, okay. There's a statement you're going to make By Allah, I did not do that. So that's by Allah is the oath. I didn't do that is the answer. So when Allah says well last year by the time What does he want to tell me? And you

00:24:08--> 00:24:11

the statement in Santa Fe,

00:24:12--> 00:24:18

human being he said insane human being is at loss, everyone

00:24:19--> 00:24:31

and what is the relationship with time and the loss of now Adam, in your mind to a human being your birthdays, when the day pass part of you have passed?

00:24:32--> 00:24:43

I am at loss because time Allah gave it to me for a reason. Why didn't he gave me time in the Medina Avenue, except those who believe.

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

While I'm in a slightly heightened does a good deed. What I was happy with I was always sober, and they enjoy and good. They enjoy and help each other. for truth in truth, to implement the truth and helped each other

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

To Be patient. So Allah made the oath, in the time

00:25:07--> 00:25:17

given to Adam in the AMA, and to look at the time as a blessing. This translate in my daily words, does it? What does it mean? Muslims,

00:25:18--> 00:25:21

believers, I should never say I'm bored.

00:25:23--> 00:25:24

I have nothing else to do.

00:25:25--> 00:25:59

One last, by a law, by I'm sorry, by the time Allah made an oath in it, can see I'm bored, I have it. I have the blessing near my turn the two blessings free time. And anyone does not use the time for believing in Allah subhanaw taala, a good deed help each other, to live truthfully, to to apply the truth. And if we cannot, and life is difficult, then help each other to be patient. That's time. That's how my day should be.

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

The steak the worse. Let's take this the saying of a SWAT officer. And let's take the same of Satan, Hassan robustly, combining them, and let's leave it. It's not just information we have to live with what I'm going to do with it. Time is a blessing. Allah made an oath, and I am but few days. So what do I do? Believe Alhamdulillah we are your miracle. Blessing Allah gave us.

00:26:27--> 00:27:25

Part Two. Amina saw the hat, the time the blessing to do a good deed. Well, I work, I am married, I have children, I work my job 1216 hours a day, I have two jobs, I have to take care of all these things, my children, my mother, all these. So I can't be all the day doing only acts of worship. He didn't ask me to do that. And that's what I did. Josie explained, and he made my life and yours easy. Look at your time. What are you doing in it? What are you doing it? Doing it? Number one head on something that is lawful. That's number one has to be lawful? lawful? Can I change this lawful thing to become an act that will bring me closer to Allah? pantalla? The answer is yes. So are you

00:27:25--> 00:27:40

telling me sleeping? Sleeping is going to be an act of corba? And I'm going to be close to Allah with it. The answer is yes. Really? Yes. Number one, why are you sleeping?

00:27:41--> 00:27:44

Well, I have nothing else to do that I'm going to go on sleep. No, that's not horrible.

00:27:46--> 00:28:28

But I am going to go to sleep because I'm tired. Yes, that's what most of us that can be changed by saying Gala. I can't worship you. Well, when I am tired, I can't focus. I'm going to go to sleep to get to rest. And then so I wake up and I am fresh and I'm rested. And I can serve you better than the the sleeping became Columba became closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And of course, all the what Rasul Allah salatu salam taught us before that we go to sleep, what should we do? What should we say when we wake up? So time in my daily life, I am days collected.

00:28:29--> 00:28:52

I am given blessing of time. The smart person who takes advantage of the time, the smart person, the successful person, the person who will win at the end, is that person who looks at time as blessing who looks at time that this is is actually named

00:28:55--> 00:29:10

fortune and everyone has it. There's no discrimination in this and then use the fortune for what Allah subhanaw taala is happy with. Allah Swati Software Center was asked

00:29:11--> 00:29:18

and please look at this Halle SubhanAllah. They said the out of Swan lock they asked him how he sought out to set up an SM Yes.

00:29:19--> 00:29:22

Oh, you nursey higher Actually, he was asked, you know

00:29:24--> 00:29:37

who's the best person who's the boss? The best people to follow? Simple question. So if I was asked or you were asked, we were asked who's the best person? What do we normally say?

00:29:38--> 00:29:42

We give them descriptions. And he says are you salatu salam

00:29:43--> 00:29:46

Mung Bala amo hacer una ama

00:29:47--> 00:29:51

whomsoever lived longer.

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

Haha not only live longer, but with this long life. Well hacer una Amadou and his deeds

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

His actions are good, and became better and better. Who's the best person? The person who lives longer. So when I celebrate my birthday, or this is the new year, and now I'm going to look and say, Wow, is 2021

00:30:19--> 00:30:25

how long I lived, it depends how old we are. And I'm going to say, let's, let's assume I'm 70.

00:30:27--> 00:30:41

And I'm going to say, wow, I lived for 70 years. Now I come to the hadith of Allah Swati santosa mandorla on Moodle Alhamdulillah gave a lot gave me the life but what what was going on?

00:30:42--> 00:30:52

And he or she use this long life, this extra years that Allah gave, some people didn't get to the other

00:30:53--> 00:30:57

end good deeds have so not only good, but passionate. Perfect.

00:30:58--> 00:30:59

So

00:31:00--> 00:31:36

that's the first thing I'm going to tell myself as I'm looking at time, as I am enjoying this new extra year that Allah gave me. A lot did not test me with, with being sick and dead. No. A loss pantalla saved me, saved us. hamdulillah not only blessed me with health, the first blessing or Swati salatu salam said, but it's the second one he gave me extra time. I am not and you are not everyone who's listening to me. We are not from those who Allah said in the Quran. Allah

00:31:38--> 00:31:48

loudly armello sorry Humphrey Mata rocked the person when they die there, they will say to a loss pantalla corner of your God. Send me back.

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

Why? And that person was dead. It's too late. It's not going to happen.

00:31:55--> 00:31:56

Naturally.

00:31:57--> 00:32:06

I will do a good deed. FEMA rocked I will do a good deed in the time I wasted

00:32:08--> 00:32:29

let's look at ourselves Alhamdulillah hillbrow maybe I'm not that person. Because I'm still alive. So I have it. Now let me use it. Let me use the blessing in what pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala not likely I will. I am going to do it.

00:32:30--> 00:32:59

Slowly FEMA and a wasp pantalla remind us of the same thing and this is sort of when I flew home and he said same concept but this one is to us still living still living meaning I still have time. spa we even use it for the patients right and if you if you see someone terminal cancer right and and that person will say they give me six months to live what is six months to live time?

00:33:00--> 00:33:05

I was told I may make it for another year that's time

00:33:06--> 00:33:13

I undo we don't know how much left to could be this is it but I'm still having it Alhamdulillah

00:33:15--> 00:33:18

and let's do what Allah told me to do you and me what annfield

00:33:19--> 00:33:43

me mirzakhani owner calm and probably a Yeti. I had a company motor for yahoo.com he had to fire cooler be lonely or hurt me either during college FAFSA work on I mean aside he will lay your head on long enough some agenda will lock will have your own be my time alone. I said this short on one of your own the hypocrites and the verse is one

00:33:44--> 00:33:48

of verse 10 and verse 11. And Allah says the following

00:33:49--> 00:34:01

and I'll translate the verse and then let's live the verse he said what am people spend matters upon outcome what we gave, you know, probably before yet he had a call moto before death comes to one of you

00:34:02--> 00:34:14

play on that person who death is coming to them meaning at the end, say hello biloela Horton, yo, yo Allah, please give me a little bit more time.

00:34:15--> 00:34:28

Let's meet a little bit longer for us. I am going to be giving charity welcome in asahina and I'm going to be righteous and Allah respond, willing you Allah neffs and Elijah genuine

00:34:29--> 00:34:35

and Allah who respond and says no salt will be delayed. when death comes in.

00:34:36--> 00:34:43

Allah Javi only matamanoa and Allah all knowing, and Allah all aware of what we are doing.

00:34:45--> 00:34:45

blessing

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

that we don't give it its due, right. We don't look at time as a blessing. We look at time as I don't have time. This is how we most of us, that's what we say. so busy. I'm so caught you

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

Get caught up. There's not enough time for me to do this and that.

00:35:04--> 00:35:24

The answer is whatever time you have, we all have 24 hours. That time, that's what Allah gave us. By His wisdom. He decided 24 hours for human beings. He didn't make it 36 of the day. That's him. suparna right. And I have no choice.

00:35:25--> 00:35:50

I cannot make them 36 we all say this. I wish that day was 36 hours, I will do this in this. No. But can I make the 24 hours in my Acura in my day of judgment when I'm in front of Allah? And he has my book in front of him? Can I make the 24 hours worth worth a year? The answer is yes. And how is that

00:35:51--> 00:36:00

in detail is next part too, but in general now to bring you all to it is look at the intention as an Imam with Josie

00:36:02--> 00:36:09

said and I asked Allah pantalla to make me live longer. But

00:36:10--> 00:36:38

so I can do more good deed because the best people as Swati saw to a sinner, just I've shared with you, the best person is the person who lives long and do a good deed. You don't want to be 70 and 80 or 60 or 50. And now you start doing things you didn't do it when you're young. As I shared with you a couple of weeks ago, when we talked about hijab and and why a lot of Muslims are taking it. It's so sad when when somebody is 50

00:36:39--> 00:36:53

and had been doing this good deed beautiful, difficult, challenging deed for all these years. And now when I'm much closer to my death, I started disobeying of law. What a loss. What a loss.

00:36:54--> 00:37:17

What have you call me merasakan outcome spend and here's specifically about spending but we can apply and says do a good deed because before that comes in. Once that comes in time is done. Yo monopoli sama apathy suggested in kotoba the day one that sky will be folded, like a book is folded no more. No more.

00:37:20--> 00:37:25

And Swati salatu salam teach us this in another Hadith, beautiful honey

00:37:26--> 00:37:28

humps, cobbler humps.

00:37:30--> 00:37:54

Take advantage of five before five. And I want you to number one, let me read the Hadith, all of it and it will translate and comment out of Swati salatu salam said and this is Satan Abdullah of Nimbus narrated deathrattle Swati Sato Sam said attending hums problems take advantage of five before five. What is the five here Rasul Allah, right.

00:37:55--> 00:38:11

Hi Attica problematic or it's actually it's Shabaab aka kubla harmik your youth before he gets old was a heartbroken cobbler socomec your health before he gets sick.

00:38:12--> 00:38:19

coming to our point today, we're far all like a combination of luck and your free time before we get very busy.

00:38:21--> 00:38:28

Walking out a couple of quick that's worth your wealth before he gets poor. And the fifth

00:38:29--> 00:38:32

the higher ticket problematic.

00:38:33--> 00:38:42

And your life before you die. Five, five, take advantage of them before another five.

00:38:43--> 00:38:45

Number one what is advantage me

00:38:46--> 00:39:06

when there is a lot of ads about sale end of the year sale Black Friday, what does that mean? And the ad usually will say take advantage. Don't miss it. The sale of the day the sale of the year what does it mean? meaning there's an opportunity that you can get more

00:39:07--> 00:39:09

for what you normally would pay more.

00:39:10--> 00:39:28

Isn't that the case? So Friday, Black Friday, what is the Black Friday, Black Friday is the Friday is where you get something normally gets for $10 in the Black Friday will get for $5 same thing and you always say take advantage of it.

00:39:30--> 00:39:39

Now way before more than 1400 years ago I Swati aside to say I'm telling you when we take advantage of these five before another five

00:39:40--> 00:39:42

these five are blessings

00:39:43--> 00:39:49

and that's why I'm to take advantage of it I need to look at them as blessings and take advantage of them What are they

00:39:51--> 00:40:00

and it takes it by sequence number one Shabaab aka Abrahamic, your youth before he gets old why what

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

Is that when I'm young, when I'm in my 20s,

00:40:04--> 00:40:16

healthy, full of energy, don't get tired easily. A lot of resolve. I'm not scared. I want to jump and do things. When I get older.

00:40:17--> 00:41:07

My health I have no idea. My energy is not the same. I don't have the same result. I get tired easily. Shabaab aka kubla romick your youth and when I take advantage of the youth, before I get old and that Saraswati salatu salam saying, meaning what? Meaning what do I do when I am young? What do I do as I am when I am young, I go to Hajj when I'm young. Before I get old, why? Because when I go to Hajj and I'm young, may Allah invite us And may Allah subhanaw taala lift this test that prevented us from visiting his house. When I am young, I can do, I can walk, if I can go through the difficulties I'm young, I don't get tired. What rather when I am older, or on on wheelchair, a lot

00:41:07--> 00:41:45

of things I can do properly or the way I want, because I don't have enough. I don't have enough energy Shabaab cobla homak, one, two Sahaja Yoga, cobblers or comic your health before you get sick. When I am healthy, I can fast extra when I am sick, somebody has diabetes, somebody has heart disease, they can't take advantage now, blessing of time placing off health that do it multiplies, makes your rights scale heavy before there is no more chance

00:41:46--> 00:42:11

to kubla socomec, meaning nothing is going to stay the same. And this is something all of us who have lived enough in this life. Know this, for fact, nothing stays the same. The day does not stay day all the time. The night doesn't stay night all the time. Darkness doesn't stay darkness all the time. Sickness doesn't stay sickness all the time. Either I'm going to get better, or somebody will die.

00:42:12--> 00:42:24

Things change. That's what he's teaching me. So how to god bless Alec Levine, aka Pablo for quick. Your wealth before he gets poor. What does it mean?

00:42:25--> 00:42:31

single people, you're working, right? living with your parents. The whole salaries for you.

00:42:32--> 00:42:58

Then you get married, you have children, you have a house, you have to have a car, children gets older they have to go to college, then becomes the money is not enough. Barely I can pay my bills. So what is he telling me when you have the money? And you don't have yet that many expenses? Do what spend it for a law? What matters up now spend from what we gave you before you die?

00:42:59--> 00:43:01

Three, four.

00:43:02--> 00:43:12

What is today for all luck, accomplish organic, take advantage of your time before you get busy. What does that mean?

00:43:13--> 00:43:36

What's a free time? free time is when the time I have I have control over? I am not required to do in this time, any obligations, whether it's to last pantalla whether it is to the rights of people, whether it is my work, whether it's my family, whether it's free time that's we call free time.

00:43:37--> 00:43:59

And what is what is the advantage of taking what is what what is the advice he's teaching me it is Salatu was Salam when he tells me take advantage of your free time before you get busy. Does that mean I'm going to be sleeping on the couch or time watching to walk from one channel to the other? Is that taking advantage?

00:44:01--> 00:44:07

from Instagram, to Facebook, to Snapchat to texting to is that what is that taking advantage?

00:44:09--> 00:44:11

Is that taking advantage?

00:44:13--> 00:44:22

That's a question you and me have to start thinking of, because we are few days. And when the day goes, that few days become less.

00:44:23--> 00:44:29

We get closer to that it's reality. We cannot run away from it. We're seeing it every day around us.

00:44:30--> 00:44:59

Take advantage of time before you get busy. Meaning I was a college student. The only thing I worry about is study. And I stay with my parents. So I'll have to worry about the household cleaning or food or eating or shopping, go grocery nothing. Then I get married. Now I have a family I have to take care of. I have a house to take care of the time is not the same and I'm still studying or now I'm studying and working and married. It's not the same

00:45:00--> 00:45:57

free time. What did I do with the free time when I had it that's what he's saying that a site or set up, take advantage. Summarize again so we don't lose our thought. Time is a blessing to blessings the human being in called loss and that's the editor for Swati Software Center. Health and free time. Take it's a blessing, take advantage of it. You and are you we are but few days and time. Every day pass some part of us is passing to death comes in the real reality and that's the fifth take advantage of take advantage of life before death. What is he telling me use your life to what is beneficial to your life and most importantly, what is beneficial for me and you in the hereafter

00:45:58--> 00:46:00

to the eternal life.

00:46:01--> 00:46:06

Meaning I look you know when at the end of the year and again this is the time

00:46:07--> 00:46:33

that the end of the time we look at many things right? Many things what we did what we did then if you have a business you will look at the end of the profit and loss all these that's usual. The most important thing I think we should look and May Allah make me do it before anybody else is what is the profit loss chart of my time with the last panel what add

00:46:34--> 00:46:45

the problem you know what is we don't remember who remember what did he say or she said last week? Or did or didn't do? Do I remember last year

00:46:47--> 00:46:56

Profit and Loss take advantage of life. Take advantage of your living before before

00:46:59--> 00:47:47

I die and I was sweating, salt or cinnamon is something very much related. He said and this will be the last heavy I will leave you with today. And then share with you if you wisdom about time. And I need you to think of this all of us including me and our Swati Sartre said the following and this is in a tournament he and he said latter Zulu Adam, Adam Yama, Yama, latter Zulu, Adam Kadima, Abdu, yo malkia Hector yourself, and only he FEMA of na. Why naomie FEMA father be one Malli min Enoch the Saba or FEMA and for one just me FEMA Abla. let's translate Allah Swati salatu salam said the following

00:47:49--> 00:47:52

the man's feet man's meaning human being you and me.

00:47:53--> 00:48:00

Spent a lot on the Day of Judgment, he said, The Day the human beings feet on the day of judgment will not move.

00:48:01--> 00:48:04

Meaning move forward.

00:48:06--> 00:48:35

Before he will be or she will be asked about the following. I am going to be asked about these, each human being. He said he will not move my feet. Allah will not let them move the Day of Judgment before I answered this before my book is going to be prevented presented in front of Allah pantalla and he's going to ask me, may Allah make it easy for all of us here obey me and Allah who will ask the following

00:48:36--> 00:48:37

my life

00:48:39--> 00:48:45

my time my age almost, which is usually translate to life or age.

00:48:46--> 00:48:51

What did I do with it? females now? What did I use it for?

00:48:52--> 00:48:58

or abuse it for? females. Now what did I say? What did I do? What do I say to our last podcast?

00:48:59--> 00:49:07

I worked with no pure intention. I ate, talked, slept. And

00:49:09--> 00:49:13

and and I remember this was a while ago

00:49:15--> 00:49:20

when non Muslim, asked some ask the Muslim and says

00:49:22--> 00:49:26

do you drink? And the Muslim said no. Do you smoke? The Muslim said no.

00:49:27--> 00:49:30

Do you have a friend?

00:49:31--> 00:49:32

The answer is no.

00:49:33--> 00:49:39

And the non Muslim in a very casual real says so what do you do in your life?

00:49:40--> 00:49:50

Alhamdulillah we are Muslims at hand a lot. A lot taught us there is way more in this life than eating, drinking, working

00:49:51--> 00:49:52

and having fun.

00:49:53--> 00:49:56

We were not brought to this life for that.

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

We did not Allah did not put us on this earth.

00:50:00--> 00:50:36

To spread mischief, and waste, he did not. And that's what angel told the last pantalla after geography and the usage of waste, we could demand or even put it on this earth, who's going to spread mischief, and spread killing? one atom was a bit heavy handed and we glorify you. And Allah says, I know what you don't know. So I and you will be asked, my feet will not move, unless I'm going to be asked, What did I do with my life? And I say this all the time to myself, I better have a good answer.

00:50:37--> 00:51:22

And I cannot change it because the answer is already written. They are writing my diet, my time. What did I do with it? knowledge? What did I do with it? Your enemy, FEMA photography, the knowledge? What did I do with it? And the knowledge is not necessarily knowledge of the any beneficial knowledge? What did I do with it, boost about it. And I had all these degrees and put it on the wall and became so arrogant. And I'm started disobeying a lot. What did I do with the knowledge? He saw questions that I'm going to be asked the smart person who asked herself and himself now these questions and get the answers ready. So on the test comes in, I'm ready to pass.

00:51:24--> 00:51:25

And knowledge. What did you do with it?

00:51:26--> 00:51:32

and wealth, money? FEMA, FEMA, cassava, where did it come from?

00:51:33--> 00:51:58

Panama, the wealth? Where did it come from? And how did you spend it? Two questions about Panama. Two questions. Two questions about wealth money. Where did it come from? What kind of job I'm doing? Where am I investing my money? Do I am getting loans? Or am I dealing with interest in Riba? usury? Where is it specifically about money?

00:51:59--> 00:52:02

Where did it come? And how I am spending it?

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

May Allah protect us? And then one, just Smith female, blah, and his body health? What did you use? What did you waste it? And what did I do in my body? I have to have a good answers for these questions. Subhan Allah and Imam Abu Tamia. He said, we're going to cover this in our new
