All praises due to a loss of data who knows what we reveal and knows what we conceal, and even knows what the animals feel. We thank him we praise Him and on him we have reliance. It is to him we only turn to for our true guidance. We asked him to send his peace his blessings has mercy on the best of human beings and prophets, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, on whom he prays until the very end of our days, and we asked him for steadfastness, guidance, mercy and to never lead us astray and for him to save us on judgment day. Sammy,

00:01:34--> 00:01:47

welcome, everybody. Shout out to the peace and unity conference. And this is my first time visiting you all here in Abuja, in Nigeria in general. I came from the city of the Prophet sly settlement Madina, munawwara

00:01:49--> 00:01:54

alarmist Mandela, even a Mohammed May Allah gathers there inshallah to Allah soon, right host you

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

and the recent alojado salaam,

00:01:58--> 00:02:01

the one that Allah subhanaw taala called him.

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

Muna de man, the one who called to faith is the one who called people to an everlasting journey, a journey to realize their own reality, their own immortality, their own temporal state. And the recent allottee of Salem was the man when people just saw him, they realize there's a greater purpose in life, they realize that there's something to ascribe to and aspire to. They realize that life cannot just be about your day to day existence. It can't be just about making your money and taking care of a family and trying to find some love. And then after that, maybe have some children. And then after that you perish from this earth. And the reason a lot SLM was the one who when people

00:02:49--> 00:02:53

looked at him, they said that there's gotta have, there's got to be a meaning to things.

00:02:54--> 00:03:39

And the reason why Solomon, he came with Islam, and he read the Quran to people, you have to understand he came to a society where people thought one of the beliefs they had in the Mexican society at that time, that you only live once YOLO. Right, you only live once. This was the belief of the Mexican society. May you hear a warm over here, I mean, they would say, Who is the one that's going to resurrect and revive bones, when they have become dust? Who is going to do that they did not believe in resurrection. They did not believe in Bertha. So they really believed you only have one life, you use it to your best you become the greatest power, you have the greatest money that

00:03:39--> 00:03:59

you can have. And that's that you perish. And that is why because they felt there was no sense of self accountability. There was no accountability in life so you can do what you liked. And that is why the era people at that time, it was very easy for somebody to commit harm and oppression against others, and to take their rights. In fact,

00:04:00--> 00:04:19

they would almost be proud of it. They would say to each other, for example, a story that's passed down among the Arabs, a man goes to a people that host him. And when they host him, they give him the generosity that the Arabs are known for that generosity of hosting.

00:04:20--> 00:04:36

So they host this man who comes by and at night, what he does is he takes out a sword, and he kills the host, and takes his family as his own property. And not only that, he then writes a long poem, praising himself of what he did.

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

And then that poem is recited in front of the Kaaba, and then they see how I owe the villa May Allah protect us that this oppression, how poetic it was, and so on and so forth. This sense of purposelessness because of the lack of self accountability, and what did the prophets I sent him to do? He came to teach humanity

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

That there is an ultimate accountability for us all.

00:05:04--> 00:05:47

And that is why the first thing in the besides enema did when he stood on the mountain of Safa to give the public proclamation of Islam, the first thing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he did, as he said, all people of Mecca, and he called them by their names by their tribes. Imagine this is prophesied sounds calls Yoruba, he calls hausa. Right? He calls all of the different tribes. And then what would you do you would pay attention? Because that's what you identify with. So they all come gather around in the Vla, Sato ceram. And the prophets I said, I'm assessed to them, what would you say, if I tell you that you will be held accountable on a day for the actions that you've

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

done on this earth,

00:05:49--> 00:06:39

and they were amazed and taken aback accountability, what accountability to whom, to what God what creator, and that's when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam told them, that the ultimate accountability for human beings in fact, our humanity, is based on knowing that we're accountable to the one Lord Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is how the message started. The entire message of Islam is summarized in a Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim, he said, couldn't feed dunya Kaveri, Sabine, stay in this world or think of yourself in this world, as a passer by someone that comes in this passing by, they rest under a tree, they get some rest, and then they move on. They're on their way to a different

00:06:39--> 00:06:45

journey, a journey of their life and existence. And this is why I want you all to understand something I grew up in America.

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

And one of the things that

00:06:49--> 00:06:50


00:06:51--> 00:07:10

psychologist by the name of Dr. Lisa Miller, she says something interesting about the American society. And as you all know, we have a crisis in America, when a cart with regards to the crisis of materialism, the crisis of materialism, where people are chasing the world and giving up their own selves even

00:07:11--> 00:07:28

and being lost in it. And this has become now globalized culture, you will see this now, in Nigeria, you will see this in the world. She says something very interesting. She said that even although 80 to 90% of the American public believe in a higher being

00:07:29--> 00:07:32

many of the people who are

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

diagnosed with clinical depression, and they're taking pills. She said that two thirds of those cases have to do with existential crisis, not actual mental instability.

00:07:47--> 00:08:33

What does that mean? That means the vast majority of people in a country like America and mimicking obviously the world, they believe in a higher being, but they're searching for an existence and purpose. They're searching for a reason to live a purpose out their spirituality that's missing a void in their hearts. That's not there. And that is why Islam today is something that people need the most, to fill that void that the prophets lie some have brought to the Mexican society, you and I take advantage, our own Islam, you and I take advantage of the purpose that's given to us. But you don't know how many people are dying, waiting for some kind of purpose and direction to be given to

00:08:33--> 00:09:05

them. And I'll just share you with you a story. One of my friends, he, I asked him, I said, you know what made you accept Islam. And he said, the fact that when I opened the Quran, I found for the first time something giving me direction, telling me do this, don't do that. Stay away from this, this is bad for you. There's some good in this, but the evil or the bad outweighs more. Look at the direction. He said when I opened the book, and it's giving me that sense of direction, I realized that this is this is can only come from the Lord in the creator one.

00:09:06--> 00:09:30

And we take this for granted. We take this for granted. So when it comes to the discussion of the eternal journey, and the journey of the soul, and the journey of the Hereafter, I want you all my brothers and sisters, to just take a moment and reflect that your simple existence as being a Muslim is a blessing itself. hamdulillah 100%, every single hamdulillah

00:09:31--> 00:09:47

100 for Islam, because you've been given that purpose, you've been given that direction. The only thing is we've been kind of lost from that. We're kind of constantly trying to check ourselves in finding that truth. Now.

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recognized that many people, they suffer some form of religious trauma. They've been traumatized.

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

by people, they've been traumatized by a faith or religion, somebody has taken them away from their connection to the divine. Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is why the prophet SAW some embodied a way for people to recognize their true reality, their purpose and their connection with a law, the God Almighty Almighty, Most High. And that is why we as Muslims, we embody that message in the life of the prophets, I send them to connect people to this eternal journey to this eternal journey, to make them realize there's something greater than just YOLO, you only live once. And the way the prophets I sent him, I did it, I want you to reflect with me.

00:10:42--> 00:11:10

When the companions of the Prophet seisen, accepted Islam, the first thing the prophets I sent them would teach them is absolute trust in the Almighty, absolute trust, that your affairs are in the hands of the God Almighty and creator. And therefore anything that happens to you there is a reason for it. And there's a wisdom behind it. You may not know it now, but there is something there. And when you see it, you will know

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

I had a friend recently, that went through some very difficult situation,

00:11:16--> 00:11:40

a difficult moment, he's going through a divorce. And I said to him, knowing the person he got married with was not compatible with him. But you know, sometimes we need to go through and make those mistakes for us to realize, and Allah subhanaw taala shows us the way. And even though that moment right now is very difficult and hard for him, I said to him something because I know it's true. I said Allah is preparing your happiness now Don't worry, he's got your back.

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

A loss preparing your happiness

00:11:44--> 00:11:52

allows already preparing your happiness, trust in Allah you will see and I saved the message, because I know inshallah, whenever he finds the person,

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

Allah wills for him to be with,

00:11:57--> 00:12:29

then I will show him this text message and say remember this. Remember this, this reminder, the prophets of Allah wa sallam acted like that with many of the companions, many of them who would go through difficulties and hardships and not see sometimes immediate, you know, good immediate answer. And they would sometimes have moments of questioning, that's okay, that's part of faith, you're not going to sometimes see immediate answer. But if you have trust in Allah subhanaw taala, it will help you on this journey. It will help you on this eternal journey. Now.

00:12:30--> 00:13:04

And the result a lot of audios send him a built this in his companions. With one other thing, the second thing, and that is ultimate accountability to the Creator, ultimate accountability, brothers and sisters, I'm going to make a profound claim, a claim that Islam makes for all of humanity. The claim that Islam makes, is that there is a hereafter that we're all going to be held accountable for. This is the claim of Islam. And therefore, the claim that Islam makes is

00:13:05--> 00:13:30

that the highest form of accountability for human beings, is the fact that a creator is going to hold them accountable. This is the highest form of accountability. And we believe if human beings don't have that, there's very little which will stop a man from degra dating and degrading to the point of animalistic,

00:13:31--> 00:14:18

carnal desire and oppression. If there is no check of that accountability, whether it's the law, or what's personal values, we believe the highest form of accountability, that checks man is human being is a loss panatela in the human being is a lost part that our Creator or God, this is the second thing the prophets Isom instilled in his companions in their eternal journey, that they're going to be accountable to their Creator. So a man that knows he's accountable to the Lord will never oppress their fellow man or woman will never oppress the spouse, that they've been given a trust and do it over. And Allah says in the Quran, what a husband, men who miss out on haleiwa,

00:14:19--> 00:14:37

we've taken from them a heavy covenant, a heavy trust. Do you know when that is used in the Quran as well, that word a heavy weighty trust, responsibility and promise is only used in the Quran as well for the responsibility of prophethood.

00:14:39--> 00:14:57

And the other time it's used is the responsibility of marriage, taking care of your spouse. Understanding the commitment of marriage is as weighty in Islam as Prophethood as Prophethood and that is why people who know they're accountable to their Lord.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

They will

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

Take care of the people they're accountable for. And that is why our beloved Prophet sallallahu Sallam even would say that marriage completes half of your deen. Do you know why he said that? We This is on all of our cards for marriage, right? When you get married, you've written this on your card, marriage completes half of your dean come visit or come to such and such persons marriage. We don't we don't finish the Howdy. Do you know why the prophets I said and I said this. He said this because your entire life in this eternal journey. You only have one set of eyes, one set of ears and one tongue to help you complete yourself to help you overcome your shortcomings. To help you

00:15:42--> 00:16:23

overcome your deficiencies in your mistakes. It's only one experience. So when you marry and you find the person that you're compatible with, and that love and nurturing, you know what you're doing, you're admitting to yourself, that there is a another person that will help complete you, that person will complete your faith because there is another set of eyes another set of ears and another another tongue trust me there will be another tongue inshallah and you will hear it hamdulillah to help complete you to help take care of your shortcomings and deficiencies and I want you to hear the rest of the body, the profit side settlement says for yet tequila. So let them have

00:16:23--> 00:16:28

fear of a law, let them be conscious of that other half.

00:16:30--> 00:16:55

Let them remember that other half, let them not oppress that other half, let them not be annoyed at the other half. Let them not treat other people better than their own family in that other half. And Allah subhanaw taala gave that why the ultimate accountability is to Allah. The ultimate accountability is to Allah. If it wasn't for that what is stopping men from being animalistic?

00:16:56--> 00:17:44

What is stopping men, and that is why you see the oppression that is happening in our communities, domestic violence, and beating and all of these things to oppression at the world level. You see, it is because there are men who believe they don't have accountability to anyone. And that is why we believe there's ultimate judge. Alone Hakeem and LaHood hack him. Allah is the one who in his court, no one will be oppressed. No one will be oppressed. This belief that is ingrained into a society What do you think will happen? They will believe that everyone is responsible for themselves cool enough to be my customer tahina. And you will face that accountability on the Day of Judgment. That

00:17:44--> 00:18:12

is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught the companions in this journey to the hereafter beyond I want you to understand that there's a fear of death. Oftentimes when we talk about the journey to the hereafter and what's going to happen in the hereafter. It's a very, it's a very grim topic. People start to become afraid. There has to be some level of you know, fear put in people and things like this is not how the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam taught his companions.

00:18:13--> 00:18:19

This is not how nobody's taught his companions, I want you to hear how the prophets I send my taught his companions about the next journey.

00:18:21--> 00:19:07

Listen to this. This is based on the two things I've already told you. Number one, this life is based on trust in Allah. This is the foundation of our life. Everything you do is to build your trust in Allah. And the second thing is accountability to him. So how did the Prophet says and then introduced to them? What would happen to them after their passing? What is this like for an era Southwestern, I'm in the hadith of eyeshadow laterna he said, Men have balika Allah habibollah hodaka. Whoever loves to meet Allah, Allah loves to meet them. Woman, Curry, Haleakala, Curry, hula, hula, and whoever hates or dislikes to meet a law that creator Allah also like dislikes and hates to

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

meet them. So I saw the law on her look at the smart woman. And look at how real she was with her faith. She said, Oh prophet of Allah, all of us hate death.

00:19:20--> 00:19:28

Yeah, Nabil, Allah, a cut are here to promote for coluna Nakamoto. If you're talking about death, all of us hate to death.

00:19:29--> 00:19:37

And we don't like it. We have a disdain for it. We don't think about it. The prophets I said them. I said, It is not like that. Yeah.

00:19:38--> 00:19:55

It's not about thinking about your death in your demise. Rather, when a believer is given the glad tidings of the mercy of a law, his pleasure and paradise, they love to meet Allah and Allah loves to meet them. And then when a person who disbelieves and rejects Allah

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

is given news of the punishment at the hand of Allah.

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Law and hardship is imposed on them.

00:20:04--> 00:20:50

They hate to meet a law and the law hates to meet them. Look at the way the prophets I'm afraid, this eternal journey. Look at how he wanted to change the concept of fear, but rather into love, of hope. Have a moment where you're looking forward, you're trying to see when is that moment you're going to come and be reunited with your beloved. And that is why in the recent alojado selama spent his life teaching the companions the third principle of this journey of life. Everything is done for the love of God. Everything is done for the love of God. This love of God is what brings love between people is what balances relationships. This love of God will make you seek the pleasure of

00:20:50--> 00:21:04

the Lord and will make you treat people properly. This love of God will give you contentment in your life. This love of God will fill the void everyone is searching for. Everyone is searching for, to the extent

00:21:05--> 00:21:10

a great American Muslim by the name of Malcolm X. Mahalo Tada.

00:21:12--> 00:21:20

Medic Chavez. Malcolm Aloha, mahalo Tada. He said something very powerful. I want you all to hear Malcolm X, Mo la tada when he went to Hajj.

00:21:21--> 00:21:41

When he went to Hajj, he reflected on this moment of him gathering with all of the people from the different parts of the world. And for the first time he saw a society, he saw a people, he saw a faith, which does not differentiate between black and white and color and caste and system and tribe.

00:21:42--> 00:21:46

This is the ideal, this is ideal. So he said,

00:21:47--> 00:22:24

when I saw this, I saw people from all over the world, all different parts of the world. And he said, America needs to understand Islam. Because this is the one religion that erases from a society the race problem. Throughout my travels in the Muslim world I have met talk to an even eaten with people who in America would have been considered white. But the white attitude was removed from their minds meaning what exceptionalism thinking you're better than them thinking that you have civilization and they don't think that you are the savior of people.

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

He said this mentality was removed from them.

00:22:28--> 00:22:43

And it was removed by what the religion of Islam which speaks about ultimate equality. And he said, I have never before seen sincere and true brotherhood practice by all colors together, irrespective of their color.

00:22:45--> 00:22:51

And this is what he said, I've realized what true Islam is. The statement of loss or loss is lm, LA.

00:22:54--> 00:23:32

FC. None of you are true believers until you love for your brother what you love for yourself. This is the Hadith that made Malcolm X Rahim Allah accept Islam. In fact, a professor at the University of Richmond in America by the name of artha Hussain, who interviewed many people who accepted Islam in America. You know what they said, you know what she said? She said, most of the people I interviewed, whether white or black said they converted after they read the life story of Malcolm X, his autobiography, his experience in life of a Muslim. He said second to that was the Quran. That's the second thing.

00:23:33--> 00:23:50

He said, but mostly the autobiography or the life story of Malcolm X, Ohio law Tada. Do you know why brothers and sisters, our Prophet taught us that people see the application of your faith before they care what your faith has to say.

00:23:51--> 00:24:22

This is the eternal journey, the prophets I sent him I taught his companions to prepare for what you do and your application, how you live by your faith is what people will judge you by and what you will be judged by not what you say with your tongues, and how you act. And that is why in our world today, even though Islam is a faith of the ideal, Muslims are not living up to the ideal. In fact, some of them said, Alhamdulillah I met I learned about Islam before I met Muslims.

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

Because of our shortcomings, we are a faith that has no tolerance for racism, tribalism, or any kind of janelia, of preference of man, of preference of people of preference of nations in society. But you see that in our community, you see that amongst Muslims, because we are all trying to live up to this ideal. We're all trying to live up to this ideal and we all have those shortcomings. And this eternal journey brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught his companions that the basis of unity of man is that you work in love

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

God, love for God is what will make you treat people with the best of manners with the best of luck and the best of society. And you will build a society that is based on that, on that principle, the Prophet sallallahu audio cinema would then describe what would happen in the hereafter for a person that lives according to these principles. And that is what you all

00:25:23--> 00:25:30

expected, I'm sure to hear in this lecture. What will happen when you go to the next life, and the B cell alojado selama, described in detail.

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

He said,

00:25:33--> 00:25:37

at least Auto ceram, that when a believer

00:25:39--> 00:25:40

is dying,

00:25:41--> 00:25:56

the angels of mercy come to them with silk cloth from the heavens. And they say, come out to the pleasure and the contentment of your Lord, who you've been living your life, trusting.

00:25:57--> 00:26:07

You've been living your life, acting in his love. You've been living your life, only accountable to him. That's why you would never oppress and wrong anyone else.

00:26:09--> 00:26:19

And they and they say to him, upon you is the mercy of God, and a fragrance descends on them. And a lord who will never be angry with you.

00:26:20--> 00:26:26

At the time of a person's passing, I want you all to just reflect a moment in this point.

00:26:27--> 00:27:06

How beautiful is it? When you see someone who was righteous and they pass away? Some of you may reflect moments now when you see maybe your grandmother or your grandfather or your your parents may allow help and protect them all in Shaolin Grantham long life for those of them who are alive, and forgive them for those of them who have passed. I want you to reflect on someone you saw him you witnessed, passed away I've seen I've seen that. A righteous believer when they pass away, you know what they see, you know what you see? You see them smiling. You see them seeing maybe faces of creation they haven't seen before. You see them telling you they're seeing light and white, and

00:27:06--> 00:27:07

those around them.

00:27:08--> 00:27:39

Among them were my wife's family, a righteous woman, you would know whether she's the queen of any word any country, but she was the queen of the ohana because she read the Quran. She was a woman of Quran, she lived with the Quran. And there are our elders here who they they have copies of the Quran that are so old, but they keep it next to them because that's their companion. This woman when she was passing, she opened her eyes and she says, I see men in white standing around me.

00:27:41--> 00:27:43

She says her Shahada and she passes away.

00:27:44--> 00:27:46

I had one of my teachers in Medina,

00:27:48--> 00:27:51

his aunt, and he's from Yemen. May Allah help the people of Yemen.

00:27:52--> 00:27:58

His aunt was a woman who could not speak, she lost the ability to speak.

00:27:59--> 00:28:04

And one day she was working in the fields of Yemen.

00:28:05--> 00:28:07

She calls out to her son

00:28:08--> 00:28:17

and her son comes running. And she says to her son, my son, forgive me from going to the forgiveness of a lawn she passes away.

00:28:19--> 00:28:20

She passes away.

00:28:22--> 00:28:25

And how many of the righteous before us like below the law on home?

00:28:27--> 00:28:32

on his passing on his deathbed, this great companion of Russel Wallace Isola

00:28:33--> 00:28:39

What does he say? His wife is crying, saying oh are sorrow or sadness?

00:28:41--> 00:28:46

And obviously this is a moment of pain. But below the law looks at his his beloved wife

00:28:48--> 00:28:58

and says my wife, the one who's closest to me, the one who knows me the most. Don't be sad. Because tomorrow, Verdun, nunca, Mohammed and Masada.

00:28:59--> 00:29:05

Aristotle says, tomorrow we will meet our Prophet and his companions. And that's how he passes away.

00:29:07--> 00:29:09

What a beautiful outlook on life.

00:29:11--> 00:29:31

If I tell you all, what is it that you look forward in? Jenna, I want you to write a list down. You might start thinking about very material things. I want a 500 bedroom mansion in Sharla. Okay, I want a water fountain of chocolate milk. Don't judge me because that's what I want. Okay, I want to be able to fly.

00:29:32--> 00:29:40

I want to be able to see because I like my history. You know, specialist. I want to see the entirety of human history like I was there.

00:29:42--> 00:29:49

Right? It's very interesting. My wife is like, I think you have better things to do. I said, Don't just don't worry about it. And I want one thing more than anything.

00:29:50--> 00:29:52

I want to be able to sit next to a soloist

00:29:54--> 00:29:57

and hear his life from his own mouth

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

and I want to go to a walker.

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

Don't go to Amato and Fatima and Khadija and Arusha

00:30:05--> 00:30:32

and have that moment. Because guess what? After I give you 510 minutes, to tell me what you want to engender, that stuff is temporary, right? Like, those are material things. But some of the greatest moments you will have in gender is you reuniting with those that you love. Isn't that right? That is the greatest thing in gender. I spent years away from my wife because we were separated and travel.

00:30:33--> 00:30:49

And she had to study in university. And it's very difficult to leave your family very difficult. For those of you who have experiences, you know what I mean? But somehow one thing I would try to comfort her myself with, I would say, this is not goodbye.

00:30:50--> 00:30:55

Even if we pass a law will reunite us again. So guess what?

00:30:56--> 00:31:10

when that person receives First of all, the greatest message you and I can hear in our lives, something that we're working for day and night as Muslims, something that we raise our hands and say yeah, I'm not perfect.

00:31:11--> 00:31:28

Yeah, Allah, you know, my name is Elijah AKP Barfi. I turned to you with my weakness, like Amaro de la Jose Allahumma inni a school la casa da da Sakuma T. O Allah, I complain to you the weakness of my strength, this is our motto.

00:31:30--> 00:31:34

In our weakness, we turn to Allah What are we asking? Oh, a lot. Don't be angry with us.

00:31:35--> 00:31:49

Oh Allah be pleased with us. Allah don't prevent good for from you because of the bad that we do. Or Allah don't turn away from us. If you do, who will turn to us. The first thing you will hear in the moment of death

00:31:50--> 00:31:55

is the angel descending in saying to you, Allah will never be angry with you ever.

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

Mercy is written on you,

00:32:01--> 00:32:04

and the contentment and pleasure of your Lord.

00:32:05--> 00:32:08

That's the first thing you will hear a lot for

00:32:09--> 00:32:31

that day to live for. After that, they pass this soul as if they're superstars in the heavens. And they pass from one to another, until they bring them to the gate of the heavens, where they say the greeters of the gates of heavens. How amazing is the fragrance of this person that has come from the earth?

00:32:33--> 00:32:51

Who is that? Who are they they will name them the best of names they used to call them. This was the generous one. She was the one that cared about her family. She was the one that took care of the orphans. He was the one that never oppressed his own wife. He was the one that overcame his anger.

00:32:53--> 00:32:55

All of those things. And then

00:32:56--> 00:33:02

that moment we're all we're we've all been waiting for the believers.

00:33:03--> 00:33:04

Yeah T.

00:33:06--> 00:33:07

Ottawa helmet meaning

00:33:09--> 00:33:32

the souls of the believers will come and join them. And we'll see this person that will has come to the gates of Paradise, you'll be reunited with that son or daughter you lost. You will be reunited with the mother or father that you lost, or the spouse that you lost, or that friend that you lost or that teacher that you lost at the gates of paradise. And the prophets on alojado Cinema say,

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

and they rejoice more over them than any one of you rejoices and is happy when his absent, loved one comes to him on that day, you will be more happy than meeting in the dunya over someone that you are one of your beloved that you had not seen for a while they will be more happier that because guess what? This is eternal happiness. It's not temporary. And then they the prophets. I said Emma says

00:34:02--> 00:34:19

they asked him what happened to so and so what happened to so and so they asked about the dunya tell us about the people what happened? What happened to my cousin What happened to my brother, what happened to my sister, what happened to our mother and father? They say let him be he was in the hardship of this world is the first thing you're asking him let him enjoy the journey a little bit.

00:34:21--> 00:34:23

And then they say

00:34:26--> 00:34:27

when he says

00:34:28--> 00:34:30

what did he miss?

00:34:31--> 00:34:38

The prophets I cinema says that the the people of heaven say will say this person was protected from Hellfire by the mercy of Allah.

00:34:40--> 00:34:41

So comes

00:34:42--> 00:34:49

Hellfire is raised so that he sees what Allah saved him from. And he starts to think along

00:34:50--> 00:34:55

from that, from that punishment, then they give bring him back to the gates of the earth

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

and they allow him that person to rest

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

And this is the journey of the soul of the believer. And the journey of the soul of the one who rejected Allah subhanaw taala is the complete opposite. And the greatest of those punishments. I want you all to remember one thing

00:35:16--> 00:35:36

is not when they're taken to the gates of Paradise and they're rejected is not that they're shown the punishments of the hellfire. The greatest forms of punishment are to number one, they will be prevented forever from you reuniting with their loved ones forever.

00:35:37--> 00:35:38

And the second

00:35:39--> 00:35:45

they will have hope in their hearts. Maybe one day they will be taken out from this punishment.

00:35:47--> 00:35:54

But there is going to be announcement made in Hellfire, may Allah protect all of us. The announcement made is

00:35:55--> 00:35:57

you will stay here forever

00:35:59--> 00:36:00

and there is no hope for you.

00:36:01--> 00:36:23

And that is the greatest torture and punishment to lose absolute hope to lose hope. May Allah protect all of us. This is the everlasting journey my brothers and sisters. This is the journey that your prophet ra Salatu was Salam. In his final words, he recited the verses in the Quran where Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:36:24--> 00:36:45

woman illa Huwa Rasool Allah, Allah de Nam Allahu alayhi Mina Nabina sidiki no Shahada, wa salim Hasina Allah ecoffee jellicle for grooming Allahu Akbar, fabula Yanina and whoever obeys Allah and His messenger will be in the company will be in the companionship

00:36:46--> 00:36:49

of those blessed by Allah in the most beautiful of company.

00:36:51--> 00:37:05

They will be with the prophets, the people of truth, the martyrs and the righteous. What honorable company, this was. The last verse are prophesized and recited before he passed away.

00:37:06--> 00:37:14

I showed you last time and he says, the prophets I said them at the last thing I heard him say, is my animal Malawian animal la demon and unbeknownst to the Kenosha

00:37:16--> 00:37:20

and the law says, this is a laws favor, and a law truly knows

00:37:21--> 00:37:27

who deserves it, who deserves it, and what is it based on may use a law or

00:37:28--> 00:37:30

whoever obeys a law

00:37:31--> 00:37:36

and whoever obeys His Messenger and I leave you all with one thing. And that is

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

a companion by the name of soul band or the law hotel.

00:37:42--> 00:37:45

He went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with a complaint.

00:37:46--> 00:38:01

He said Yasuda law. Every time I think about being separated from you, I become worried and distressed. I become depressed. I start having anxiety. I start thinking about

00:38:02--> 00:38:03

how will I be ever near you?

00:38:05--> 00:38:23

When we leave you when you leave us, and I become sad. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said to him, yes, Oban. Allah revealed. And I have the Quran just now for you. And he said, which verse was this, the one I just recited

00:38:25--> 00:38:43

the one I just recited, what might your theory learn our soul for Allah, he can imagine Lavina nama Lavalle whoever obeys Allah, His Messenger, he will be in the company of those who our law has favored and blessed. And not only that, a companion of the Prophet slicin comes to the prophets. I said Mrs. jasola.

00:38:45--> 00:38:46

I don't know if I'm going to be with you.

00:38:47--> 00:38:51

So I said, Why, why do you say that? That'll be his name.

00:38:53--> 00:38:55

He said that you're going to be so high.

00:38:56--> 00:39:11

You can be so far. I don't have much to show. I don't have much access. And the prophesied sediment looked at him and he gave one of the best things that he said to any Muslims. He said Elmer oma man had

00:39:12--> 00:39:15

a person is with them with the one that they love.

00:39:17--> 00:39:22

And he said, but if you want to be with me, on the day of judgment, and in the Hereafter, do one thing.

00:39:24--> 00:39:27

Help me by doing a lot of solitude.

00:39:29--> 00:39:40

pray a lot constantly pray, because action is coupled with love. Another man came to the Prophet so I said, I said yes with Allah. I don't think I will be with you. He said, Why? He said, you're going to be so high.

00:39:41--> 00:39:42

And I can do

00:39:43--> 00:40:00

anything that will make me close to you because you're so high. The prophets. I said him, I said, you will be with those whom you love unnecessarily, Malik said, there was no other Hadith that made us more happy in Islam than this hadith. He said because I swear

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

By Allah

00:40:02--> 00:40:06

I hope to be with the prophet SAW Selim, Abu Bakr and Omar,

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

even though my actions are nowhere near theirs, this is honestly numatic, a companion of the Prophet lism. So with that my brothers and sisters, and this eternal journey that we're all going on,

00:40:18--> 00:40:38

a breath of rectification is built on three pillars. Number one, trust in Allah, absolute trust, trust in Allah. Number two accountability to him. So you don't oppress a single human being starting with those closest to you and you rectify your manners with the closest to you before others. And lastly,

00:40:39--> 00:40:58

you lead your life for the love of God. For the love of God you act why, for the ultimate companionship he's going to grant you because that is the best reward in paradise. That is the best reward, companionship, companionship with number one. Those who you love

00:40:59--> 00:41:02

companionship number two, with Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

00:41:03--> 00:41:43

and his family and his companions and companionship ultimately, with what the prophets I saw them I said in his last words on this earth Allahumma thermophysical Allah, O Allah, in your highest companionship, or Allah in your highest companionship or law in your highest companionship, we ask a las panatela to facilitate our eternal journey. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to live by these principles. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us the companionship over philosophize Allah. May Allah unite us with him with our families. May Allah allow us to see his blessing face. May Allah allow us to drink from his blessing hand from his pool of water which we will never be hungry

00:41:43--> 00:42:03

or thirsty ever again. May Allah make us his neighbors in paradise? May Allah gather us in the conference in general like this in sha Allah. May Allah gather us in the companionship of the ultimate reward in this eternal journey is to see the companionship and be with our Lord. Allah subhanho wa Taala was also going to be Mohammed while he was serving as main Xochimilco design.
