coma

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

come with a voice in

00:00:31--> 00:00:33

my head to Fatah homeless

00:00:38--> 00:00:38

have

00:00:39--> 00:00:41

another boo Shadi.

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

Meanwhile, he would want

00:00:47--> 00:00:47

to do

00:00:51--> 00:00:59

so the Hello Now firstly My dear respected brothers and sisters who are listening as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

We have a life and the life is is going

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

fast.

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

how fast you just need to look at your children.

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

Look at children.

00:01:15--> 00:01:20

They're grown so quick, true or not. If you leave that down there, that's good.

00:01:21--> 00:01:27

They go scroll so quick. You just saw them in the nappies. And then running around.

00:01:28--> 00:01:56

You just saw them running around. And they've already gone to school. You just saw them going to school. And now they're wearing a blazer and a uniform gone to secondary school. He just saw them going to secondary school. And now they're off to college. After University. He just saw them graduate. And now Should I actually Should I just held in my hand is just like the other day, you held a kid in your hands. And he was so young, she was so young.

00:01:57--> 00:02:13

And then life doesn't stop. So all those people who are on this half of the life up to University have to shut the shut up to the age of marriage, then they will have those thoughts in their minds. But the rest of us on the other half.

00:02:15--> 00:02:44

The half that goes down the sand guys. When you climb a mountain you got halfway up and then halfway down. Yeah. So when they come halfway down, it's like you just saw them get married. Nice. Got one kid. got two kids, three kids. Oh is easy. poppin out there for us. And then they just will start growing. And this man himself, you know, you just saw him a black beard black hair. He's got a white hair. He's got white beard. Some people don't like to show the white beard. So there are two ways of doing it. Either you

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

die hard.

00:02:48--> 00:02:51

or black kind of thing. Yeah. Or the other way is to

00:02:53--> 00:03:00

get rid of it. Don't show that you got white hair. There's people who do that they hide everything. Okay? Why Hey, is actually a good sign.

00:03:01--> 00:03:49

It's a sign that time to go. Okay, white hair. white beard is a good sign. That's why I kept mine. See mine. I'm only you know, I'm not that old. Okay. Maybe I'll get my way. But if you have white hair, it's a good sign. Everyday when I look at the mirror, it's a sign that my time is up. It's a good sign. When Allah gives you wrinkles is a sign that time is up. When Allah gives you a slow body. It's a sign time is up. But anyway, he just had three kids and then they start growing and you you start going from your business age to your sort of age of thriving with the business maybe in between the midlife crisis. Okay. And after that, it's time to see you know, then you just saw you

00:03:49--> 00:04:27

know, it was your shoddy when he was or your wedding when he was 2527 whatever you are. And now like every other week, his his shoddy, shoddy, this chat the other shoe guys, especially when the summer comes here, you just got to carry on going around to sitting there eating, eating, it's always the same menu anyway, but you eat and eat and eat and so on. And the whole someone goes with about another 10 charges that have been done. But like that every year goes, Ramadan comes it goes. It comes it goes one part of the years come one part of the year has gone after that. What is it? after that? The 50s then people start seeing that the body is not only going slow, but they've got

00:04:27--> 00:04:55

problems within their own bodies and everyone has problems. Don't worry, you know melasma will keep all of the safe and sound say I mean what everyone has problems. And then when you get to the last stage of your life, if you live that long, that is if you live that long, then it's finished. And it goes so fast. It goes so fast. The point is that Allah azza wa jal has summed up the entire life in one ayah of the Quran.

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

The whole life of ours from the beginning

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

Till till till the end in one ayah This is in Surah Al Hadid surah number 57 if you look in Surah Al Hadid i think is our number 20 or something. If you look there, Lhasa has said

00:05:12--> 00:05:19

there are Lamu animal hired to do Nia Li boom Allah whom was enough to

00:05:20--> 00:05:33

be in a Metallica room fill Mr. Lee one will add five things, five or extension six things. Allah says know that the life of this world first is live.

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

First thing first thing a life is live.

00:05:38--> 00:05:39

Games,

00:05:40--> 00:05:58

play time, just play. People like to play people like to have games. But what do you mean by the young kids? These young kids that are young when we're young as well saying, you just want to play and play and play and play. It just doesn't end? Boy smiling.

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

I linked with you and liquidy Don't worry about Yeah, sometimes we are the young kids coming to mosquito and then some you know, some ankles gay they get upset.

00:06:08--> 00:06:12

He's running Dora bogra grab him.

00:06:13--> 00:06:39

I would love it. If the uncle told me that he never ran when he was young. I would love it if those uncles could say that when when I was small mom to sit down there just listen all day. I love it. If the uncle or someone could say that, but thing is when you at the age you just want to play the main thing or your focus is you want to play and you want to play. So the beginning of life starts off with you just want to have fun, okay? But then the play changes.

00:06:40--> 00:07:15

Allah says long after that stage number two, when a child grows up to the teens, then it becomes or near the teens it become the lavon Lau is amusement is not just play. It's amusement and pastime or pastime games. So now they don't only want to have a game where it's like you score this much you win. Or you you know, or take you, Your Honor, Let's chase each other is none of that. Now it's amusement. Now they're more into, you know, being entertained.

00:07:16--> 00:07:39

So this is a different type. This is more to do with the mental games that start so they want to be entertained. And in that amusement what happens is the the teenagers and others, they start to compete with one another even when you're young and live when you're when you're actually playing with one another. You're competing with one another when you have amusement you're competing with one another.

00:07:40--> 00:08:14

Allah says la Han was the number three Xena Xena number three is Xena, which is when they're in the teens when they're approaching the teens or in the teens. What they're all into is they want to they want to basically find attraction they want to attract they want to attract others to them and be attracted to others this is Xena. Xena is something that is decorated Xena is something that that you have attraction towards so what happens is for example

00:08:16--> 00:08:25

a boy will basically you know he not only grow his hair cut his hair in such a way he'll flick his hair in a certain way

00:08:27--> 00:09:04

in front of the mirror yeah matching himself up now if you can do that right if he can do that he hasn't got any hair in his head he won't be doing that right but he has got that he'll probably go for that if not that he'll go for his muscles there are some boys they into their muscles Yeah, they intellect in our look look at this man. I can take anyone on you know they into the muscles if it's not the muscles it might be something like the money the money that they might be able to have left so for example the money might go towards like designer designer clothing okay so some boy designed to the designer clothing so it's like you know I'm wearing this they want to Adidas top and I did a

00:09:04--> 00:09:37

sort of hat when I did this back then I just choose doing this so it might be whatever it might be they want to do on a show some designer if it's a girl is something different right girls will you know either it's going to be her makeup it's going to be her you know and nail polish whatever and you know whatever they might be you know she wants to make yourself like a cat or something you know it might be something that she might do or you might be have bad that she's got which is gonna be competition with who's got what baggy might be shoes you might be something else Xena is attraction, it might be the face it might be the images and young guys you should know and even you know middle

00:09:37--> 00:09:45

aged guy should know that whenever you see a person's image on a on a social media, you should always question whether they really look like that.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

Yes, and yes, you have to question that. Why? Because people people you know you can you can put some makeup. You know, you might you might laugh at this year but I'm serious about this. Somebody said to me the other day they said you

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

Brothers, some brothers are putting makeup nozzle, like some foundation just to make themselves look a bit more, you know, serious. I'm not gonna make this up. Yeah, some brothers are putting some foundation especially they do or somebody might do it before they take the picture for the social media or they'll do it they'll do it because they'll take the normal picture that take into Photoshop they'll take into another app or some some kind of you know, developed developing software and they'll enhance the image and you can enhance your image to make yourself a normal sister can make herself look like some other other like, you know top level woman Yeah. Oh sister. If you look

00:10:44--> 00:10:58

at the two together you say these you're gonna say voila, he biologically Yeah, they can be related. What are you gonna look at them and say there's no way through the genes or the DNA could these two be related and is the same person

00:10:59--> 00:11:08

the same person to one image and they look like one thing and they take another one they enhance the other put something else they look something else. So anyway, my point is Xena attraction.

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

So number one was World War One.

00:11:12--> 00:11:19

Live was what was the English formula was it to play games player number two is one

00:11:21--> 00:11:51

now which is Come on guys interact interact. Bolton er Bora was number two amusements Can I hear from everyone is nothing wrong? If you say amusements was number two, you're gonna learn something you're gonna go home and then you'll remember this. If you say with me, you remember it? Yeah. Part of teaching is to get people to actually repeat the whole thing. So guys, all of you I know you're you know that the rest of them are coming about you. Yeah. Maybe you don't want to know about the unrest is coming to bite you. But let's go through it. Number one is number one.

00:11:53--> 00:12:04

Which is one, play your game? Yeah. Number two is one. Which amusements I mean, the number three is one, zero is attraction, attraction, right? And number four,

00:12:05--> 00:12:08

becomes number four, Allah says tougher home by now.

00:12:10--> 00:12:25

It becomes a means of mutual competition of right mutual competition of trying to show who is who has got more pride, who is greater than somebody else in something that they have.

00:12:28--> 00:12:36

So many things, for example, for example, I support this team, you support that team, I'm better than you.

00:12:37--> 00:12:38

Then

00:12:39--> 00:12:46

I'm not going to take the team's name. Otherwise, if I take one teams and the rest of them that doubts about the Oh my god, oh my days.

00:12:47--> 00:13:02

I'm not going to take that name as a useable one team. The other one supposed to that team is tough. Haha, this is, this is a way of you trying to get one over another. Or, for example, you're from one country. Another one's from another country. You say My country is better than yours. My team is better than yours

00:13:03--> 00:13:27

is the VA Whoa, this is like having a way of having some kind of pride over others. It's a mutual pride of others. It could be a car that you own. Some people they buy a car and they think you know, they're the showman. My Allah people buy cars and they didn't a greater than others. You have no social status with the car because remember, the car eventually is going to go to the scrapyard.

00:13:28--> 00:13:52

And you eventually will go to the graveyard. Okay, the scar the car if it doesn't matter what make it is there are some super cars 30 years ago, 40 years ago, most of those unless they'd been kept in a garage in dry sort of under dry conditions, unless they've been kept like that. Most of the cars made super cars made 40 years ago, 30 years ago most of them are in the scrapyard have completely gone.

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

The ones even 20 years ago. Most of them are gone.

00:13:56--> 00:14:08

10 years ago, you'll see them around. new ones come out people think wow, this is crazy. This is a new thing I need to get into things again. Now the youngsters these days, they'll see a codicil

00:14:10--> 00:14:16

Bugatti categor. Wow. And they want to own one.

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

They want to own one.

00:14:20--> 00:14:23

youngster the other day said to me, he said, I want to own one.

00:14:24--> 00:14:25

And I looked at him. I said,

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

you need you need a new pair of trainers.

00:14:31--> 00:14:56

So you need to see pair trainers. Can you afford them? He said, I lost my mom and dad Give it to me. I said, Yeah, you can't afford some trainers. And you want to buy a Bugatti. Wow. You know, sometimes you think about the logic here are some of these kids so what's going on inside their head because it's a fake world. Guys wake up. It's a fake world. You better measure what you can actually afford. No.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

You have mutual rivalry some people have in house

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

Houses is that you got a big house you think you're in a bit upper class than others?

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

You've got a house somebody else got a flat you're more than them you've got four bedrooms and a three bedroom your height and density you got five bedrooms or three or four bedroom you had and then

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

and then what does Allah say as the fifth one?

00:15:23--> 00:16:13

After having mutual pride of what you own what you have the last one Allah says is Taka Salaam feel unworldly? Well, I will add, now it's an extension of how much you can, you can accumulate, it's going to be an increase either in your wealth or an increase like a whole competition of how much you can beat somebody else in the wealth or how much you can beat in somebody else in having children or having something that you so this is the this is number five. This is when people have been married. They get to the stage of midlife. 30s 40s 50s runs all the way to 60s 70s is to Castle Takata is one is like alright, you own a house. I own a house. And I've also got an investment. I've

00:16:13--> 00:16:22

got a property that I've invested. Oh, you gotta have new investment in property. No problem. I've invested in two, one here one Pakistan.

00:16:23--> 00:16:53

Okay, you're you've also done that. No problem. Yeah. You want to see my one in Pakistan is five storeys high. Oh, you also got that? No problem. I'm investing in Dubai. I'm investing now in Spain. I'm investing in Italy. I'm investing offshore. So Oh, you got a business? Yeah. What I've got a business. What's your turnover? What's your terrible my turnover is, you know, 20,000 pounds a year? Well, mine is 40 or 50,000 pounds a year? What's yours? Well, mine is not 2 million pounds a year my turnover is 4 million pounds a

00:16:54--> 00:17:29

Taka let's see how much we can increase on this rivalry. Okay, this tribe like all the other rivalries, the other rivals, for example, you know, the first one live, playing games, that kind of ends at some point in your life, you're not going to be in the games anymore. Number two, the amusement allaahu. You could take it in different ways it does carry on but you take in different way you take in an adult way. Adults like to get amused as well. And there are halaal ways of getting amused under hiromasa News. I don't want to get into that right now. We've got a lot of young kids here. Number three Xena attraction that runs all the way till let's say however long,

00:17:30--> 00:17:36

you've got something to be attracted to you. And then there comes a point when you look at your face in the mirror anything man, there's nothing left here.

00:17:37--> 00:17:38

There's no point.

00:17:40--> 00:17:48

Even if I was to go for a girl right now, yeah, I can look for a 10 year old girl right now. I'd be lucky if a four year old takes me. You know?

00:17:49--> 00:18:01

You come to a point in life. When you look in the mirror you think you know I'm out of that class. Now I'm in different club. I'm in the 40s Club. Or I'm in the 60s Club. You know people have these clubs all day. Yeah, then you go for gold. You know some you go for gold.

00:18:03--> 00:18:24

Sorry, guys, you play golf here. No offense to you. But there are clubs that are clubs for certain things that have clubs for now, there's a lot of people, you know, there's a craze of going to the gym in the 20s. Okay, but there's another craze also going to the gym when you're in the 30s and 40s. The people who go in the 20s, they call for a different reason. And the people who go in the 30s 40s go for a different reason.

00:18:26--> 00:18:39

The people who go in the 20s they just want to build on their muscles. for them. It's not like losing anything. Most of them go inside, they don't want to build the size of the muscles. People who go in the 40s they want to lose their belly.

00:18:41--> 00:18:47

Here isn't the thinking, man. If I dive in the water in the swimming pool, yeah, there'll be no water left.

00:18:49--> 00:19:27

Me The water's gonna be out. Okay, so there's different reasons why people go to the gym. But it's the same thing, which is people are looking for what Xena attraction, but it lasts a certain age, certain age after that it won't be for Xena. I mean, when people get to the 40s and 50s it's more about health conditions. It's more about it's more about trying to not keep your body for good reasons healthy rather than make them attractive, and Sunday are all changes. It's not about now I want people to look at me and be drawn towards me is more about how wanna myself keep this body going as long as I can without any health issues. Right? The whole thing changes. And then tobacco

00:19:27--> 00:19:48

and bainer communities rivalry between people that lost the end of people's lives. And it's a very sad thing if people fall into it, and they get themselves lost lost in it. I mean, I understand that people say like for example now a little, a little banter now and again, it's okay. And the other day I had some people that are saying that they're saying that you know, oh, did you hear? Oh, did you hear Bangladesh one Pakistan in cricket.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

Bangladesh, beat Pakistan in cricket. When I heard that said yeah, I see know what some guys may so a lot of money out there in the betting shop.

00:20:01--> 00:20:38

You know the betting shops? Some guys made a lot of money when Bangladesh lose war mongers wins Pakistan a beat Pakistan. Yeah. Yeah, this box down the bad team even though I'm saying that Yeah. When when Pakistan loses the Bangladesh The one thing that my mind goes says that some guys made a lot of money by fiddling with the people, right and telling them when to lose and what to lose, right? Some guy made a lot of money today because Batman is supposed to lose to Paxton. All right. So thing is you might get really hyped up about something that's happened and you might get a whole fake thing that's going out there. But people are fiddling that the test results and the trying to

00:20:38--> 00:21:13

bribe others to make themselves lose the habit of football. Cricket, it happens in many sports right now you see. And in the in the media, so many different sports, they've got people who've taken drugs over so many number of years, they've hidden the amount of drugs they've taken, how they've taken it, there are people who got caught in actual bowl itself, how they sort of manipulated the ball, they rub the boulder rub the boulder roughly so much to make it bounce in a certain way. And then basically, you know, they win the match or they can lose the match however they want. Okay, that the point is that the farhood when you have this rivalry, we're not supposed to take it to a

00:21:13--> 00:21:15

level where it starts to turn ugly.

00:21:17--> 00:21:30

Ugly means you're not supposed to take it to a certain stage where it becomes there's racism involved. Or there's taco taco is where you feel now that you are actually better than other people. That is wrong.

00:21:31--> 00:21:37

And even the Xena number three, the one that you want attraction, there's a halaal attraction to the Haram attraction.

00:21:38--> 00:21:48

If you're going to like make yourself look nice, the Hadith says in Allah hi Jamie on your channel. Ally's beautiful, he loves beauty.

00:21:49--> 00:22:36

You supposed to make yourself look nice, that's fine. But the haraam attractive is man when I walk out there today. Yeah, all eyes are on me. You know, all eyes are on me. That's that's when it gets hard on because what you're trying to do then is you trying to make everyone try to come straight to a gender thing is my friend. The thing is, don't you think that if you really think logically about this, girls, they make themselves look so nice when they go out some of them yeah, boys do the same thing. And all they really want is they want that one super boy or one Super Girl to look at them. That's what they want. Just for that one super person. There'll be 49 non super people that will

00:22:36--> 00:22:37

look at you.

00:22:39--> 00:22:43

You insane. And there'll be another 50 ugly people that will be after you.

00:22:45--> 00:23:18

And probably another 200 super ugly people in your category that might be after you. Okay, you're after that one. You're in serious trouble, my friend. You got 299 people and you're trying to get you and you don't want them. How do you switch them off? How do you control their minds their thoughts towards you because you've come out glamorous. You've come out looking slick. You come out looking like they just want to just get hold of you. You're out there on the streets. No matter how you're dressed. You're after that one person.

00:23:19--> 00:23:33

You know what this the silly thing is you know when that one person sees you, now all the 292 I don't want you I don't want you don't commit don't come Don't come in. You think that you're after. And you see this one person one super super person that you really wanted. They don't want you

00:23:35--> 00:24:14

they think you're you're you're not you're not in their category, but they want. The whole thing is that the halaal Gina does a harem Xena, when you get to the harem Xena you can carry on having rivalry. The thing is my friend end of the day, where you will find real satisfaction is you're gonna marry one person at the end anyway. And you have one life with one person in a stable marriage. That's what's going to bring you it may not have sukoon. Last but not least escuela because you can't have all of them. Because Allah has created us in such a way that our hearts won't accept you being with several people. And that's courageous like that. And the last one, which was

00:24:14--> 00:24:59

the castle, the castle, the castle family Well, people can take that rivalry to whatever but you know what happens in the end? What happens? No matter how much wealth I brought, I brought No matter how much wealth you inherited or you brought. After all of that wealth. The man is in his 50s. He's in his 60s. He's not only accumulated a lot of wealth, he's invested in properties. He's put certain things in certain children's names. He's now putting certain things in his grandchildren's names in his 60s, okay, he's made a man is made a wonderful, he's got a wonderful sort of life. Okay, let's just imagine somebody really had a wonderful life and now his

00:25:00--> 00:25:22

He's got what he wants is luxury in this world. You know, in the end, my friend, after all our rivalry, after all that competition, after the one who wants to see he has the most, after all, the attraction, after all of the games and amusements, you know what, with all the wealth that you've accumulated, all of us came the same, we leave the same,

00:25:23--> 00:25:31

we came the same, we leave the same, which is what we came to this earth.

00:25:32--> 00:25:34

Without even close,

00:25:35--> 00:26:26

I will leave the earth, we would have left without clothes, but Allah respected the human being, by giving him or giving her the janazah cloth just to hide the shame. Otherwise, we would have left the earth without clothes. Otherwise, I luck would have said easily that we get we got buried down there without clothes. But just to respect the human being, Allah gave three sheets of cloth for men, five sheets for women, and that's where you go with on your body. And in terms of the space, you could be an owner of a business that is a multi million company later on, you could have a whole, you know, whole set of investments in properties across the world that go into the several 1000 square foot

00:26:26--> 00:26:57

sort of places several 1000 1000 square feet. But you know, in the end, it's going to be the length of your body a little bit more, and the width of your body and a little bit more, that much space, maybe three and a half cubits arm cube is three and a half arm cubits of space, and maybe two arm cubis this way, that all the land we get when we go from this earth. That's it.

00:26:58--> 00:27:10

And you know what happens after that, our friends, a person goes to the grave. And when they go into the grave, Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, I said, three things follow a person to the grave, three things.

00:27:12--> 00:27:14

His family will follow him to the grave.

00:27:16--> 00:27:26

his wealth will follow him to the grave, or to follow her to the grave. And his actions will follow him or her to the grave. And they can all go to the grave.

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

Fire yo Min husana to return back, the family who are crying over me over you, the same family that I gave, I work 12 hours a day for

00:27:43--> 00:28:26

the same family that I worked for a whole month to get a paycheck to pay all the bills. And if I did that, for 25 3040 years of my life, the same family that I fed every day, the same family that I invested for the same family that took them to the doctors for the same family that I gave them protection, this, this this whole kind of scheme and that scheme, try and protect them, the same family are now who are crying, are going to walk away, take everything that I earned on this earth, everything with them back, the family is going to go back and they're gonna go back with my wealth. And when they go back, they will be sitting there talking to each other how to distribute it.

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

Where am I? I'm with my three qubit times two qubits at a space. That's what I am.

00:28:35--> 00:28:41

And imagine if I spent my whole life worrying about them worrying about my rival God, where am I rivalries today?

00:28:42--> 00:29:19

If I'm not great today, if I'm my grave today, does it matter which team I support? Does it matter which team I support? Does it matter whether I support it, the ones that my friends support, or not know, didn't matter whether I had investments, or those investments are behind me, didn't matter how many grades that I got, the grades are needed for your life investments are needed for a lot. I'm not saying don't invest in properties. I'm not saying don't get any grades. I'm not saying that we need grades in this earth, we need to achieve the best we can in this earth. We must remember that there is there are greater things on the earth that we are after, which is our actions. Does it

00:29:19--> 00:29:28

didn't matter that I had an A a star, or a few a stars or first class of honors degree. That didn't matter. No. It didn't matter. It

00:29:29--> 00:29:45

didn't matter that I spent 510 years 20 years of my life, trying to build my business so that it can survive and I can become a rich sort of individual doesn't matter no matter what is what what matters today. What matters today is

00:29:46--> 00:29:50

all the actions that I've got. Those are the things so Allah azza wa jal he reminds us he says

00:29:52--> 00:29:55

I met Sally in algebra who fell on

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

my he'd Fatah whom

00:30:02--> 00:30:04

My yakou not pro forma

00:30:07--> 00:30:08

shady Do

00:30:09--> 00:30:10

you know he was

00:30:12--> 00:30:16

hired to do Nia Mata

00:30:18--> 00:30:20

the whole example of losses of all your five things

00:30:21--> 00:31:06

you play your games, your amusement, your attraction, your, your source of pride between yourselves, rivalry in pride and rivalry in wealth and children. Unless all of that is like a cloud rain cloud that sales and comes across and the farmer looks at the rain cloud and the farmer gets really happy. The farmers or the farmers they get happy. They see rain clouds, they get really happy. And when the rains fall onto the grounds and look at the crops, and there's a greenness that comes and shoots out from the ground, and every day they're coming to the to the hot the land, and they look at the greenness growing growing and all the lands are filled with greenness, and it gets thicker and

00:31:06--> 00:31:26

thicker and it grows higher and higher. And imagine it's wheat or it could be anything else barley or whatever the growing but it gets thick and thick I could be a paddy fields or rice paddy field it gets thick and green, green green. And then in the end, what happens is Allah azza wa jal says in the end sumaiya he do Fatah homes for

00:31:28--> 00:32:04

copama there'll be a time and that greenness will start to become brown is turning brown so the foreign minister can cut in the foreign minister take it away he needs to harvest it. There's a time when the winds blow and after the only thing is left to the stubble on the ground. And the time is when even the stubble that is in the ground, it starts to disintegrate because it's become hollow the water inside that has evaporated, it becomes hollow and then he blows into the air, the whole greenness that he had and the excitement he had when he saw the rain clouds coming in the rain is going to drop on my ground and then the fertilization is going to kick in and I will have some good

00:32:04--> 00:32:15

crops. I'm going to make a lot of money and a lot of harvest this year. The whole of it turns to yellow Allah says to my missoura, it becomes all yellow the greenness turns yellow, yellow,

00:32:16--> 00:32:25

on the yellow is there after that is completely dry, nothing left. So gone. My friend, you've got redness in your skin today.

00:32:26--> 00:32:33

The blood in my skin, the blood in your skin keeps attaching redness to all of us.

00:32:34--> 00:32:59

When we die that blood stops when the blood stops, it turns the whole body starts to become pale and yellow. Yes or no guys. So the same example allies given that your green life that you wanted the luxury you want to one day is going to be yellow, and it's going to be finished. And Aladdin says woman will hire to do Nia in

00:33:01--> 00:33:21

the whole of your life. Everything that you had all of it was just a deception form of deception. Your games. They deceived you. Yes, we need to sometimes play games. Don't get me wrong, guys. But it was a deception. It didn't help me my real life. Now the real life I started in the grave is not helping me Mahara started is not helping me. Number two

00:33:23--> 00:34:02

amusements they're not with me anymore. They're not giving me any benefit right now. Number three old attraction I had nothing was giving me nothing at all. I sat there cold myself, except that grew myself nothing. Number four, all the rivalry I had was showing who's better than who hasn't given me anything. And all the rivalry I had in wealth, unless I invested that wealth in the way of Allah or I made something good out of it. Unless my children became people who have good Muslims who are people good tarbiyah unless I did that, nothing will be over any avail to me, those children are nothing to me by now. If they make draw from you right now, I'll get the draw. If they do good deeds

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

right now, I will get an equal share of good deeds because I taught them this is the Hadees if they have good luck and good character on the earth while I'm in my grave right now, I'll get a portion of it. I'll get an equal portion of it. And if I have put them on the straight path, then I'll get something otherwise, nothing

00:34:20--> 00:34:30

was left among my actions. That's it Allen says you want rivalry This is the rivalry you should go for Sabu illa ofuro

00:34:31--> 00:34:34

mirabai Kuma majan nothing now.

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

This

00:34:37--> 00:34:37

you will.

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

Allah says if you want to raise one another in competition, don't just raise one another in who's got the biggest property? Who's got the most investments? Who's got the greatest show going on? No. Raise one another in trying to achieve the forgiveness of Allah azza wa jal and raise one another to see who

00:35:00--> 00:35:43

Get to Jana first. And who can get the biggest investment in Jana? That's the real race. Race isn't see when I get to the Acura, what have I done on this earth that has built my Acura in such a way that you know what, I go to Jana, and that man on the earth who had an investment in five different countries, or that person who was so intelligent and bright, and he got the degrees and he got the good job. And I was nowhere there to do that. I wasn't smart enough, I wasn't intelligent enough, or that person who had the beauty and they got the attraction, they were Earth, and I never had the attraction, whatever the case is, when I get to the next world, I want to see myself bigger than any

00:35:43--> 00:36:25

of these people, I want to the greatest portion for myself. And there's nothing wrong in you being very sort of greedy, in trying to earn as much as you want for yourself. Yes, we want the opposite of everybody. But I want that little bit extra. So when there was, for example, the Hadith of the prophets of Allah, Allah seven tells us if people knew, if people knew, for example, you know, the first stuff in the first line, if people knew the value and how much they will get a reward by joining the first line, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, people be so greedy to try and get the first stuff that it would have ended in drawing lots in the mustard.

00:36:26--> 00:36:31

We wouldn't have such a if we knew the reward what it is to get the first off first,

00:36:32--> 00:37:13

we would have had such a competition between us, we wouldn't have been fighting for this or that or trying to get ourselves in this that we would be trying to get that spot that the mustard would have to have everyone's name which know certain pieces of paper for all those papers in a box. And then I'll draw the names. Okay, Mohammed Islam. Come to the front, please. Your name? Yeah, Ibrahim, whoever come to the front. Yeah, it's your name today. And you get to go to the first step. The process allows me to tell that Why? Because the thing is rivalry of the era there's nothing wrong in having a great competition. In fact, our professor of law says, law has said that in life, his first

00:37:13--> 00:37:40

name, law has other elective name. He's told us there is no jealousy, except in two types of people. If you want to be jealous, as in a good jealousy, you're trying to compete with them and you say oh on that I really want to be like them. Not that kind of jealousy, where you want them to be finished in what they have. No, you want to be like them and better than them. Perhaps the last one says two things. Or you look at a hula hoop,

00:37:41--> 00:37:49

a man or an extension of that a woman whom Allah has given the Quran to meaning that they memorize the Quran,

00:37:50--> 00:38:32

and they recite the Quran day and night. That's the person for you to be jealous of. Another one a man whom Allah has given wealth to, and he spends or she spends day and night. That's a person that you should be jealous of. My brothers, my sisters, when the time comes, that we will go to the next world. None of us will be there to think about the many features of this earth in fact, this earth will be rubbish to us. This earth is going to rubbish in a hurry. He says the earth has no value not even to the wing of a mosquito.

00:38:33--> 00:39:10

You know, mosquito mosquito has nothing to us mosquito. You just want to just, you know, finish kill it off. But the wing of a mosquito is nothing What if I bought you a wing of a mosquito and say Hey, brother, you wanna buy this? in abundance? Is what is it? It's a wing of a mosquito? Would you buy it off? Me? No, you wouldn't even give me a penny for he said, Well, we know mosquito you want to send me a window mosquito is gonna value to me. Allah azza wa jal, His Messenger has told us that this dunya the whole world to ally, not even the wing of mosquito, when we get to the next world, my friends, this whole world, and all these things I've said yes, some of these things we need. I don't

00:39:10--> 00:39:42

want people in Peterborough tomorrow to stop working. Okay, Monday, don't go for a job. Say chef came on the weekend said you know, we need to invest with Acura. We can invest for both things. Okay. We investable thing. What I'm trying to say is that don't lose control of yourself. Because of these five things that allows mentioned don't lose control of yourself. And the main thing Allah said your competition is to get that Jana to get that to see who can have the biggest portion in Ghana. And when we look from the day of judgment from the architect to this well, it's nothing nobody will be bothered about.

00:39:43--> 00:39:59

Nobody will be bothered about Dubai. Nobody's gonna be bothered about Australia. Nobody will be bothered about the, you know, islands offshore from America. Nobody will be bothered about the places on the earth. The Peoples right now will spend a huge amount of money to try and invest not

00:40:00--> 00:40:28

Buddy, nobody in fact, they will look for one super handlebar or one Alhamdulillah that will be more worthy than whatever was behind two records who brought the last one told us to record word in the whole world. One I have one I ever had. He said one I remember as one is more word in the whole world. One time so how to say this would be super Han Allah will hamdu Lillah wa la ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar.

00:40:29--> 00:40:37

Allah has once told us this phrase once is better than whatever the sun rises above and sets over.

00:40:38--> 00:41:12

The whole world is better than that type of phrase, that phrase, we'll be looking for that phrase on the Day of Judgment. We'll be looking for our good o'clock and a good pattern data. We were looking for the time to help people. We'll be looking at the time to support others we'll be looking time we gave others our heart that's what we will be looking for the charger devoted to Allah will be looking for the time that we you know, we listen to our parents, we listen to those who are who are elders in the community. We'll be looking at time we had mercy on the young ones. We'll be looking at the times that we actually made unity and not this unity. We'll be looking at the times that we

00:41:12--> 00:41:36

could we made a way in our society. We looked after one another that those are the things that we're going to look for mellado just give us tofield because ability to put all of this in our case, and inshallah if you want to carry on reading that the seed of this of this verse go to Surah Hadid, so the Hadith number 20. So 5720 you see a beautiful description that exact mahalo Salaam Alaikum
