And today in are hotter. I just wanted to focus on these various same three small simple things. Sophisticated discussions sometimes can be distracting, you get lost within the detail. The most effective, most effective narrations and the most effective talks, discussions are those that are simple. And that's what we find the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam very simple, straight to the point, no ambiguity. And this is exactly what we call Joe Amir al Kalam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoken few words, while manorbier al Hichem. But a small few words were were fountains of wisdom. The one who was searching would keep digging and keep digging,

00:00:42 --> 00:00:44

and as they would dig, they would find more and more in there.

00:00:46 --> 00:00:53

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the first thing he said to this hobby was unsick, Kali, Kali Sanuk. Hold back your tongue.

00:00:55 --> 00:01:37

Sometimes a person spent so much time spiritually building a fort, you do. You make dua to Allah, you cry in front of Allah subhanahu wa, Donna fast gives the cassava. And each and every one of these things that I just listed right now they come with a tremendous sacrifice. And you continue to make those sacrifices, let's not forget about the pain and hunger we felt one hour before Iftar. Today, it was real. That was a sacrifice that we just had today, times that by 2728 days that have passed by from the month of Ramadan. Every day that sacrifice that we went through was very real. So we go through all of that all this difficulty. So we after we build this huge fort with our good

00:01:37 --> 00:02:08

deeds, what ends up happening is that before we get to benefit from the fort that we built, we end up destroying our own fort down. And I want you to think of the stupidity in that a person who put so much money into building this beautiful home, what you may call the dream home, working years and years and years and years. And imagine that person after building this beautiful half million million dollar home, has a tree next to his house and he's trying to cut the tree. He says rather than calling a company, I'll do it myself. The wind blows the wrong way. What happens to that tree

00:02:11 --> 00:02:14

it falls in the house, once the tree falls in the house, what happens to that house,

00:02:16 --> 00:02:50

it's gone, you know, a few 100,000 Maybe to get that roof back to get the walls back to get everything, all the damage, the foundation, everything, all that big damage that that big tree has caused by falling down. Everyone would love for that person, what a fool. You put years of your life together and you you were cheap at the last moment you didn't just pay someone to take that tree out. It would have cost $500 $800 You spent a million dollars there but you cheap down at the end with an $800 What kind of fool is this person? And that's exactly what the Prophet said Allah who it was Saddam was teaching the Saudi. He's teaching him a lesson, which is that sometimes it's easy to

00:02:50 --> 00:03:28

do a good deed. But the challenge isn't only in doing it the challenge is actually in protecting it. So most of you guys understand that. Doing the good deed is one element of the good deed. But doing it isn't enough. After you do the good deed, what do you need to do now? Seal it. You need to protect it to make sure that good deed of yours is not robbed. This is exactly why Satan Rahim Ali Salam constructs the Kaaba, such a great deed. I mean, one of the greatest deeds probably ever done in the history of mankind. He builds the Kaaba and the reason why I say that is because until today, people are still doing that too often every person that cries and sheds a tear and dust off and does

00:03:28 --> 00:03:33

the thicket and praising the direction of the Kaaba, who's banking and and all that reward.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:41

Say that Abraham on a sudden, he builds a coma with his little son, Ismail Ali Sinha. After they finish the construction of the Kaaba, what did they do?

00:03:43 --> 00:03:50

They make a dua to Allah and the DUA they make to Allah subhanahu wa taala is Robina the Kabul Mina

00:03:51 --> 00:03:57

in the Samuel alim, oh Allah except this Roma's, my teacher used to always say,

00:03:59 --> 00:04:32

for every Reba for every good deed, there are two elements. The first is the Coppelia. The second is the Gulia. cabine means the ability to do something. For example, someone spends a few years of their life and they study, they approve the potential they had to go and study by taking out the time and during the sacrifice, putting the time in studying that material internalizing it. This is all called Coppelia the ability that a person has, but ability isn't enough, otherwise, believe it or not, there are people who are much more intellectual than we are.

00:04:33 --> 00:04:52

The second thing is actually kuliah acceptance from Allah subhanho wa Taala and the acceptance from Allah subhanho wa Taala is given to people with and without Coppelia. It's an open game. Anyone that asks Allah subhanahu mattala, for acceptance is given that by Allah and I want you to think about this from Ibrahim Ali Salam builds discover, yes.

00:04:54 --> 00:04:59

Is he an architect in any way? Do you think that building was impeccable and impeccable structure and

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

No structure was ever built like that before? Yes or no? Obviously not. I mean, it was a simple structure. But it wasn't the it wasn't the minarets or the dome or the carpet or the lights or the chandeliers of the Kaaba that it took its fame by it was the Gulia the acceptance from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and the province that Allahu alayhi wa sallam starts off this advice or webinar I'm going to the Allah Juan with that very same point. He says to him, I'm sick, Kali, Kali Sonic, hold back your tongue, because your tongue is what destroys your good deeds. Once a hobby when he heard a similar statement from the prophets that Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Oman a messenger of Allah.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:42

Can a person go to the fire of * because of what they say because of this tongue.

00:05:43 --> 00:05:57

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, Well, * yeah Kuba Natsu. Finn Nari, Allah will do him elaborate Hassan edlc Naughty him. That what else takes people to the fire of * if it isn't their tongues?

00:05:59 --> 00:06:34

What is the profit and loss? I'm saying? You're asking that can the tongue lead a person to the fire of *? The prophets of Psalm says What else takes a person to the fire of *? Meaning majority of the people that will end in the fire of * will be there because of the sayings because of what they said. A person uses this tongue and says Hola, Ilaha illa Allah inshallah Jana. A person uses this tongue and make sure she can go for of Allah. That same tongue leads a person to the fire of *. It's not about your Eva, or how much you cry in front of Allah and how long your beard is and how longer a Nama is your turban, it starts off with basic morality. Can you control your tongue?

00:06:35 --> 00:07:13

The Prophet said along while he was telling the Sahaba they say every time we met him, we saw him. We saw him you saw him smiling, because his character was beautiful. You have narrations where the Sahaba they describe what it felt like just meeting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Amen. Answer the Allah Juan says, Every time I would meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I would feel there was a warm aura like this warmth that transmitted from the Prophet of Allah to every person he met. And it was so special and so unique that every time I met the Prophet of Allah, I thought I was the most beloved and important person in his life. The attention he gave, he shook my

00:07:13 --> 00:07:47

hand with two hands, he would look at me silently Listen to me. He would affirm when I would say something he would negate if I said something wrong. He wouldn't turn his face away while talking to me rather he would keep eye contact. When the Prophet said Allahu Allah will send them a talk, he wouldn't crank his head and look to someone from the corner of his eye and talk to him. Either the Fatah interpreter Jamia, he would turn his entire body to that person and listen attentively to what that person was saying. Every time we met him, he was smiling. He gave us attention. He guided us. He made dua for us, he built us as a people. And these are characteristics of the Prophet sallallahu

00:07:47 --> 00:08:23

alayhi wa sallam is not passing on to the next group of people. Go to people who are hurt people that are spiritually down. And I'm not talking about just in the realm of Islam, just generally people that are broken in their life. Many times it's because someone put them in that gutter they're in right now. Someone said something to them. Someone broke their heart. They use the tongue in a way that they shouldn't have. That's why the word of the poet says Hidalgo personality Sati Kalam is Elian at the Hadees. Avant may that God did not want for you to be harsh in your speech. That's why he didn't give a bone in your tongue. He wanted you to be soft. Every every place you go

00:08:23 --> 00:08:54

every person you speak to your goal should be to put a smile on their face. You're probably wondering oh, why is this person talking about the tongue nfdm We're supposed to talk about such that we're supposed to talk about fasting and Quran and vicar. Yes or no? Some of you guys are probably thinking that. Why is he talking about the tongue? You know, this is the month of the Quran. This is the month of pious stuff to do. But if all of that piety doesn't translate into you becoming a better human being You've misunderstood a Baba altogether. Think of this. I'll give you one point. Okay.

00:08:56 --> 00:09:00

You pray salah. Isn't Salah, the most important of either yes or no?

00:09:01 --> 00:09:03

We start Salah by saying what?

00:09:05 --> 00:09:32

Allah Allahu Akbar, spiritually connecting ourselves to Allah. And then it's as if once we build that line, that connection between ourselves and Allah within spiritually as if we're filling the tank of our car. So the Fatiha I you know, the surah SubhanAllah belagavi Subhanallah Bill Allah adhere to the law now when I can hum something Allah and we're just loading and loading all that spirituality for for Raka when we end off our salah, how do we end our Salah What's the last thing we say?

00:09:33 --> 00:09:41

We're no longer addressing Allah anymore. You start you start the Salah by addressing Allah Allahu Akbar, when you finish off your Salah, who are you addressing now?

00:09:43 --> 00:10:00

As salam o aleikum wa rahmatullah Peace be with you to the right. You make intention of the Muslims to your right and the angels in the gathering. A Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah you make intention to the Muslims to your left and in the angels in the gathering and so on. I'm ah, they say the reason is because it's as if your test

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

To find to the congregation, that the Salah the spiritual experience I just went through, it will now translate into me being a better person. Hence my commitment to you is a Salam aleykum Peace be with you and pbsp with you my salah just made me a better person. You guys understand that? This is you know we're almost done with Ramadan and we need to reevaluate we need to go back and evaluate what did we accomplish this Ramadan 27 Nights 28 nights or 28th night what did we accomplish in this Ramadan all the Saibaba all the salah has to have a meaning.

00:10:34 --> 00:10:38

You know our deen I was just speaking in our Masjid today at the Carrollton masjid and I said to the congregation

00:10:40 --> 00:11:04

a person's Iman is complete not only your faith is complete not only through building a bond with Allah but through letting that translate into you become a better human being and then becoming a better father being a better community member being a better neighbor. And if your equation doesn't reach there the process isn't complete there's something wrong there think of it this way the month of Ramadan what's what did we do in the month of Ramadan?

00:11:05 --> 00:11:20

Go ahead guys. What's What are some of the bad that we do? Fasting Salafi I'm Elaine Quran to be the homie them emptied all of it. Okay, all this dikkat and all of it. But how does Allah subhanaw taala tell us to enter Milan Zagato fifth

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

What does Allah tell us to do at the end of the month?

00:11:25 --> 00:11:41

What did I say? The car to fit? What is the counterfeiter? It's you translating all that sacrifice that you made personally to spiritually develop yourself into saying yeah, Allah, I will not end this Ramadan by caring for other people.

00:11:42 --> 00:12:02

I've become a better person. I've grown beyond myself. I'm no longer that selfish person that entered into Ramadan. Look at the same thing and Hutch, you start off Hodge, Lubbock Allahu Allah bake. Where does your hotstart Lubbock, Allahu Allah bake. It ends with you making a sacrifice slaughtering an animal. What happens to the meat of that animal again,

00:12:03 --> 00:12:41

it goes to the fuqra goes to the poor people. So you have to get your mind out of this. This mindset that we have that Eva equals to such that you've either equals to read in the Quran, a Baba equals to a big beard scarf, face veil, gloves, socks to see her on your wrist miswak behind your ears, you know that whole thing? That's great, don't get me wrong. But there has to be an ultimate translation of all of this into something greater and some into something more meaningful. I'll share one more. I mean, I can continue giving, giving examples of these parallels in Islam. I'll share one last parallel with you before I move to the second part of the statement of the Prophet said a lot of

00:12:43 --> 00:12:59

the last advice the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave before he passed away. Mamma mia, the imaginary month of Rania Abdullah Ali narrative and many other scholars. They say the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in the lab of eyeshot of the Allah Juana and his life was now wrapping up.

00:13:01 --> 00:13:36

I shattered the Allahu Allah says, I realized that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was going to leave me very soon he was going to pass away because he said something. And what he said was ALLAH in little Moti Sakharov, that death is very difficult. As soon as he said that, she said, I know that he was going to leave me. So I held him very close. He was in my lap, in my home, I was using the tooth stick, moistening it with my saliva and cleaning his teeth with it, something the prophets of Allah while he was still in love very dearly. And finally, when the last moment came when the angel of death must have been standing in front of the Prophet saying, it's time to go on

00:13:36 --> 00:13:53

Messenger of Allah. The Prophet sallahu alayhi wa sallam said, gathered the Sahaba together one last time. Let me give them one last advice. And the Sahaba that were nearby, they were gathered together. And the Prophet said, Allahu Allah, he was said on the last advice he gave before he left the world. A Salah to mama Melaka to

00:13:55 --> 00:13:57

build your bond with Allah through your prayer.

00:13:58 --> 00:14:22

And be just with those who you have authority over HELCO Allah anticoagulant builds a bond with Allah and let that then translate into you becoming a better human being. The first advice the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave to Lebanon Marathi Allah one I'm sick Allah Cali. Cali. Sanuk Hold your tongue. The second thing, while Yasaka betook try to stay at home as much as possible.

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

Isn't that an interesting piece of advice? What is the Prophet saying to him?

00:14:28 --> 00:14:29

Go ahead, guys.

00:14:31 --> 00:14:59

Let your home continue. Let your home take care of your needs. Why is the Prophet said Allah why they was said I'm saying this to this hobby. The reason the Prophet isn't advocating for him to be a social or anti social in any way. That's not what the prophet is advocating here. There are other narrations that teach us the importance of interacting in intermingling with other human beings. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his teaching him by default. Don't spend more time out of your home than inside your home for a few reasons. The first thing is when used

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

Spend less time inside your home and more time outside your home, it is very possible you are doing that at the cost of neglecting the people inside the home. You're not fulfilling the rights of your parents, you're not fulfilling the rights of your siblings of your children of your spouse, you're neglecting people. It doesn't matter what your reason is, by the way, if someone here works a double, triple job and you spend 1415 hours out of the home, you may have a reason to do it. But trust me, there is someone at your home that is not happy with it, whether it be in a religious context, or otherwise, you have to create a balance in your life. That's the first thing. The second

00:15:34 --> 00:16:10

thing, let your home continue. The scholars they say the reason is because your home is the one environment that you control. When you step out of your house, do you control how people dress? Yes or no? Do you control what you listen to? What you see, your Salah times are out of your control too. You may or may not be able to pray sometimes depending on the circumstances, you may or may not have access to water, you may or may not have access to halal food, maybe the food you're gonna eat will be doubtful. I mean, there's so many wildcards when you're outside your home. But when you're inside your home, now you have a say, you can now raise your voice and say it's not appropriate for

00:16:10 --> 00:16:48

someone in our house to dress like this. It's not appropriate that we listen to this, it's Salaat time we'll do is there I can rest my foot on as accessible. I can make this so you have all of that available to you. And by staying at home, you save yourself from many temptations that shaytaan can lure you in with. That's exactly why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said above only be allowed to eat Allah He has Swaha the most detested and disliked places to Allah are the markets, the malls, the stores, and it's not because business is happening, their businesses are going to have on thing. It's because the potential environment that the market creates, where people cheat

00:16:48 --> 00:17:23

where they lie, where inappropriate interaction may occur, where people come with their with their very greedy approach that I want to gain my best profit here who cares about the other person where people lie, they take false oaths on the name of Allah subhana wa Tada. And if all this sounds foreign to you, it's probably because American markets are a little bit more regulated. Right? There's some, you know, decency, I would say Believe it or not go to go to Muslim countries think of a Muslim country in your mind your choice and think of a market there and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. I went to a Muslim country once and I needed some fragrance. So I went to the

00:17:23 --> 00:17:57

store owner and I said to him, Look, brother, I'm in a very big hurry, I have to go to the airport. So I'm going to ask you to we're going to cut this very simple. Give me the best fragrance that you would have for yourself something you really like and give it to me. He took off by Allah. Allah Kike some year lucky got some more he took all these old Salah Yes. Oh, that old give all these oats valerate after I heard all of it, I said, Man, this must be the best return on the road as if may have come from Jonathan for those itself. I was in a hurry. I took it it's it smelled decent, by the way. It was smoke decent. But whatever price he said i He named it I gave it to him.

00:17:58 --> 00:18:36

By the time I got to the airport, it wasn't even entered anymore. The two liquids had separated. At the bottom you had some oil base and at the top you had some water that wasn't even mixing anymore. And I looked at and I said this is the state of the markets unfortunate. You know, we call ourselves Muslims. But if you look in the heart of that person, there is no Islam there at all. There's no consciousness of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Let your home continue. The third advice the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave to this hobby. What Biki Allah, hottie ethic, cry over your sins. Remember that a day will come that you will have to stand in front of Allah subhana wa Tada. As busy

00:18:36 --> 00:18:37

as this life gets.

00:18:38 --> 00:19:19

And as easy as it is to be distracted. Keep reminding yourself the one certain thing in this world is death. Some people die when they're young. Some people die when they're old. We know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said every morning the grave calls out and says oh, so and so by our names. I wait for you. If today is your day, I wait for you. And if tomorrow is your day, I'll be waiting for you then to every day our grave is calling out to us. As told to us by the prophets of Allah Juana he was. We know that people have to leave the world. And believe it or not, we will have to leave the world. And it'll be in the very same simple fashion that everyone leaves. There'll be

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

some people who will come there hold our body. They'll stand there and they'll cry. So and So person was nice. Some people may praise us. Some people probably won't even praise us. They'll take us to a cold room. They'll wash our body. They'll put a shroud on. They'll shroud our body with a coffin. Take us to the masjid pray to a rock on us. Take us to record meetings, gelato Janaza. Naka Serato Janaza take us to the burial ground barriers into a cold, dark, isolated vault known as the grave and walk away. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually tells us that after the body is buried, one time a hobby passed away

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


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

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to the graveyard himself to bury him. It was an unsightly Sahabi.

00:20:06 --> 00:20:17

Before they started the actual burial, digging the grave out the prophets of Allah who it was set him set by the grave and he started crying. And the Sahaba they said, we sat around him and seeing him cry made us cry too.

00:20:18 --> 00:21:02

So we asked the Prophet on Messenger of Allah, why are you crying? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when a servant of Allah who is beloved to Allah approaches death. The Angel of Death comes from Jana with a group of angels of mercy to receive that soul. And they sit around this person as that person experiences the pains and pain of death. And they sit in front of that person and beautiful garments with beautiful fragrance with flowers in their hand. And they say to this person, this is the last part of the pain of your life. Just be patient. We've been sent by Allah with glad tidings for you. In Vienna call Rob Boon Allah for Mr. Camo, tetanus Zeno, Allah human

00:21:02 --> 00:21:04

melodica karuma festoon and remote

00:21:06 --> 00:21:19

Allah half wala zero Absu will gentility continue to add on, as the Quran says, Indeed those that said that they believed in Allah and they remained steadfast and firm. They were not willing to compromise their faith in Allah, they believed in it.

00:21:20 --> 00:21:57

Allah subhanaw taala says at the time of their death, actually, the IRS says angels descend upon them and the Mufasa on the commentators of the Quran, they add, angels will descend upon them at the time of death. And they will sit by that person and they will say to that person, hola to Hafele don't fear Well, no, don't grieve, we give you glad tidings of Jannah this person will be in pain lying there. And the Hadith says the angels will open up a window in front of him, from which he will see his abode in paradise. And seeing that place in general will bring so much pleasure to this person, because it'll create meaning to all of that sacrifice. You know, everyone thinks about I

00:21:57 --> 00:22:35

think about it. Why does Allah keep saying no, no, no, doesn't that thought crossed our mind sometimes. This is haram that's haram, I have to do this, I can't do that. You feel a little constrained at times. But it all pays off ultimately, because Allah subhanahu Matata will not ask you to do something that isn't best for you first and foremost, and secondly, without rewarding you for your sacrifice. The hadith says the angels will sit in front of him. When the time of death will approach the angels will extract the body so peacefully from that extract the soul from that body, so peacefully, just as water is poured from a jug into a cup, no disturbance at all, just

00:22:35 --> 00:23:13

transferring from one realm to another, from one place to another. And just as a strand of hair is taken out very softly from a pile of dome. They will then take the soul and wrap it up in a garment, and they will carry it to through the heavens. And the Hadith says every time they pass by a group of angels, the angels will ask, what is the scent we smell? And the angel of death will say, this is the scent of the soul of the pious slave of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. We are taking him to the audit of Allah subhanaw taala and the angels will say who is it and they will say this is so and so the son of so and so. And the angels will say by Allah, we know this person, because there was a time

00:23:13 --> 00:23:51

that this person did a good deed and Allah subhanahu wa Tada said, Oh God, I love this person. So you should love this person too. And Davina nadesan Then came to us. And Jimmy Ali Salam said, Allah loves this person. I love this person. So I request all of the angels now to love this person too. And it's the same result of the angels loving that person that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one narration continued on by saying that the pious people of this road also build an inclination towards that person, because they are constantly in the presence of the angels, and that love transitions from the hearts of the angels to the hearts of the pious, which then you see Boulia

00:23:51 --> 00:24:26

and acceptance for that person amongst people, the angels, they say we've heard of this person, and the medical mode will then continue to take the soul as it passes through the angels in each one praising marhaba and big welcome to you, honey, unlike glad tidings for you. Allah subhana wa Tada will not fail you. You didn't fail Allah, Allah will take care of you. Until finally the soul is brought in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala even though he knows who it is, just to hear the name of his beloved servant will ask the Angel of Death, whose soul is this? And they will say yeah, Allah, this is the soul of so and so the son of so and so. And Allah

00:24:26 --> 00:24:59

subhanahu wa Tada will say, you sacrifice your life for me. Now wait, what we've prepared for you. In one narration, that soul will be given the permission to the center in front of the Throne of Allah subhanho wa taala. And another narration, Allah subhanahu wa Tada will say to the angel of death, take this soul back to the grave. And as that body is being lowered into the grave, that soul will also join and enter into the grave too. And the people will throw soil on that grave and seal it off, and it'll be very dark. And at that point, two angels will come very long Hadith by the way, two angels will come to ask questions and they will ask

00:25:00 --> 00:25:01

mantra book who is your?

00:25:02 --> 00:25:06

Who is your Lord? Medina UK? What is your religion?

00:25:07 --> 00:25:12

Madhava Roger Who is this man meaning is this your prophet? Do you believe in the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:25:13 --> 00:25:31

and this person spent his life saying La ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah. He will say Deen al Islam will be Allah wa rasuluh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my religion is Islam, my Lord is Allah and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is my messenger.

00:25:34 --> 00:26:08

The angels will then open up that grief on that person. And that will turn into our garden from the gardens of Paradise. And there will be a window open from where that person will be able to see their final abode in Jannah. And the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is, even though that person will be lonely, he will look at his abode and he will be in joy waiting for that moment where he will join his beloved ones, and enjoy the reward of all that sacrifice. When these angels will leave, a person will appear with the most beautiful face, and the deceased will ask who are you?

00:26:10 --> 00:26:53

And the reply will be I am your good deeds. You didn't leave me in the world, I'm not going to leave you now. I'm with you. And he will be in the company of the good deeds that he did, until the day of judgment. done the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam he cried as narrating this hadith. And he said, Well, I'm multifaceted welfare Judo well Kaffir as for the disobedient servant of Allah, and that is believer in Allah. When that person's death comes, he will be in pain, because that person will then realize all the promises made by Allah are now coming through. I was forgetful of them. I was negligent of them. Angels will come to receive that soul with angry features, with dark garments

00:26:54 --> 00:27:30

with a stench that will resemble the fire and they will have weapons in their hand for amputation and punishment. And when this person sees these people, his heart will yearn to just jump out of his chest and say, stay away from me, let me just stay in the dunya but the angels will not be interested and they will say to this person, oh, this obedient servant of Allah, you disobeyed Allah even though Allah honored you more than any other creation or Rahman, Allah mille for earn holla calm in southern Alabama who began the merciful

00:27:31 --> 00:28:13

Allah mal Quran. He taught us the Quran Halal in sun, he created the human being he created us when you and I were nothing let me I couldn't shake a mascara when you are nothing. Allah subhanaw taala is the one who created us. Allah mahal by and he gave us the ability to communicate. He taught a speech a sham swirl, Tama Rubia husband, the sun and the moon they recognize the favours of Allah upon them and they praise Allah. And here the insaan is he forgot to praise his lord he forgot to say thank you to Allah subhanho wa Taala he forgot you to shoukat of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. All these years. We forgot to even worship Allah subhanahu wa Tada all these years of negligence. Isn't

00:28:13 --> 00:28:23

there a point in our life where we say enough is enough? I can't blame anyone else for my failures anymore. Now it's my time to take responsibility and walk towards a better life.

00:28:25 --> 00:28:36

You know, it's a sad story. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala never once in his life stopped claiming how much he loved us. In here we were on the other side. We never showed a gesture of love to Allah subhanahu wa Tada

00:28:37 --> 00:29:16

Allah subhanho wa Taala as the Hadith tells us, every night he descends to the heavens of the earth and says Is there anyone who wants my mercy? Is there anyone who wants my forgiveness? Allah continues to sustain us, even if we disobeyed Him, whether we obeyed him or not. Allah subhanaw taala showed us love before we even came into existence and even now, while he we wouldn't be sitting here the way we are in the comfort and peace in this comfortable air conditioned Masjid had not been for the fever of Allah every page of the Quran you open it and you find a Rahman Rahim Allah for the web. Once your Alma Farah Allah just again and again saying My servant I love you oh

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

my servant Yo my beloved, oh my servant I love you more than your mother can ever dream of loving you. But in return, look at the betrayal of the human being. He never wants it to Allah, Allah I love you to all these years, this a negligence, ignoring the fevers of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran, he says, Yeah, you heard insaan Maha raka tropical Karim. Oh insaan What took you away from me? Did I do something that made you angry did not treat you right did not give you so many favors. I gave you everything. And I just tested you a little bit and you left me. A mother gives so much love to her child but she gets angry at her child one day and the child walks

00:29:54 --> 00:29:59

out. Is that fair? Yes or No? Absolutely not. Allah says I gave you every

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

Think you're a healthy human being that has intellect, you have wealth you have garments to call your body with. I gave you a man I give you faith, and yet you continue to turn away from me. I love you Hello taka for so work for other locka fie Surah T Masha rock kabaka gullible to Kathy whenever Dean, Sudan Fatah are very beautifully captures this betrayal of the human being to their Creator.

00:30:24 --> 00:30:33

The hadith continues on that the angels then when they extract the soul from the body, they tug on it and they pull and they release it just to cause that person more pain, like

00:30:35 --> 00:31:15

a silk garments pulled out of a pile of thorns. If you were to pull a silk garment out of a pile of forms, what would happen to that silk garment to get strap scratch ripped, torn and stretched, just like that that soul is piece by piece bit by bit taken out and then wrapped into a rag and taken to the heavens. The angels when they see this rag and they smell the stench they say who is this person? And the angel of death says this is so unsolved son of so and so the disobedience servant of Allah and the angels they say we have no desire to look at a person who is disliked about Allah subhanahu Matata. Finally when the soul reaches ALLAH, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, return the soul

00:31:15 --> 00:31:28

to the pit, called the grave, and the soul is returned to the grave. And when the grave is sealed off, at that point, the angels come and ask Who is your Lord? What is your religion? Who is your prophet?

00:31:30 --> 00:31:36

And a person who didn't live their life by these principles? won't have an answer for these things. That's the teaching of the Prophet said Allah Hudson.

00:31:38 --> 00:32:18

And the angels will then order the grave to close in on this person. And the grave will close in and the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala will start right there. A window will open, this person will be showing their abode in the fire of *. This is where you're going by the way. So while you're punishing while you're punished here, think of your final abode there in the hereafter to the prophets of Allah Juana he was said and then closed off by saying that that is the parallel of the believer and this is the state of the disbeliever Oh Sahaba ista evil bIllahi min other will cover kala Firaon process themselves three times, seek protection from Allah from the punishment of the

00:32:18 --> 00:33:00

grave. cry over your sins today. Ask Allah Allah this is a mistake I made in my life. Ya Allah I've slipped up in my life. I asked you to guide me, Ya Allah take me by the heart to a path that you love. Ya Allah when you give me death be happy with me. Ya Allah don't let me leave this world but in a state that you are pleased with me. Allah Allah Allah mean when I leave this road, give me the honor to read the shahada and Karim Allah Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, Ya Allah give this heart the ability to yearn for you. Yeah, Allah gives his heart the ability to desire you. Give his eyes the ability to cry in front of you. You know if I'm, it will pay him Rahim. Allahu Taala says,

00:33:00 --> 00:33:27

the drought of the eyes is a sign of the drought of a heart. If a person can't cry in front of Allah, that in itself is an indication that this heart is very far from Allah subhanho wa taala. My teacher and Chef used to always say to us, if you ever want to gauge how close or how far you are from Allah, there's one simple measuring stick. If you ever want to gauge how close am I to Allah? Or how far am I from from Allah, there's one simple measuring stick.

00:33:29 --> 00:33:35

How long can you make dua to Allah subhanaw taala because a friend never gets tired of speaking to a friend.

00:33:36 --> 00:34:13

As for foreigners, we can speak to each other more than five minutes, two minutes a minute. How many of us can actually raise our hands in front of Allah? You know, it's interesting because we've, we've reached out to every human being to talk to them. But we've never decided to talk to Allah subhanho wa Taala in person wants as a scholar, I want to talk to Allah, how can I talk to Allah? He said, speaking to Allah is very simple. With the Quran, Allah speaks to you make dua to Allah and you speak to Allah subhana wa Tala, this is the month of Ramadan. This is the month of spiritual change. This is the month where we get our redemption inshallah This is where we free ourselves from

00:34:13 --> 00:34:56

the fire of *. And I know this whole discussion sounds negative because they keep talking about punishment and fire and all this other stuff. So no, your Lord has the ability to exercise his justice with you. Or his favorite idol and father. If Allah subhanahu wa taala exercises justice with us, then that's exactly what we should be afraid of being punished May Allah subhanahu wa Tada. But if our Lord shows us his father, and we have all hoped that inshallah Allah subhanahu wa Tada will show us His mercy and His favor and overlook our, our sins and, and, and increase our deeds, then that's the hope that we have from Allah subhanho wa Taala Imam Shafi Rahim, Allahu Allah, he

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

said, and this is the Imam Shafi, the great Imam Shafi. Okay,

00:35:00 --> 00:35:14

It Ilahi love to ask the bunny for in the locker room builder the other kind of mini Oh my Lord Don't punish me because today I confess of every mistake of mine I've shot for it

00:35:15 --> 00:35:39

The Africa in our photo has no money. Ya Allah My hope is that you'll forgive me. Yeah Allah My hope is that you will be kind and merciful to me

00:35:42 --> 00:36:25

that Allah that promises us mercy in this world and also in the hereafter. Isn't it suitable that we also build a bond with that Allah subhanaw taala? Shouldn't we raise our hands in these last hours of Ramadan? Not even last night's anymore? In these last hours on the mind and see ya Allah, pardon the servant of yours. I've made too many mistakes. Y'all Allah, you forgiven people who are worse than me before. And you will continue to forgive until the Day of Judgment. Yeah, Allah if you forgive me, it will not decrease from your kingdom. And if you do not forgive me Allah, then where would I go? Where who else is my Lord? Who else can I go to? The world looks at me and they think

00:36:25 --> 00:36:42

that I am a good person. But the truth is that I am the most wretched unless you forgive me. This is exactly what Imam Shafi said. Although nurse will be hired off. We're in Neela Sharon, Nurse Ilam tough one knee Oh Lord, people think that I'm a good person they say Imam Shafi Imam Shafi

00:36:44 --> 00:36:53

what in Nila Sharon nurse but the truth is that my heart is dark and I'm an evil person. I've made too many mistakes in my life Ilam tough one unless you forgive me.

00:36:55 --> 00:37:38

Yeah Allah you can forgive. Any person that asked Allah sincerely Allah never turned them away. Even those who sinned and disobeyed Allah day and night Allah subhanahu wa Tada didn't distance himself from them. He continued to call them yeah, he by the by the body. Oh my servant. Oh my servant Oh my servant. Until when will this servant not turn back to Allah? How long will we continue to put up barriers between ourself and Allah subhanahu wa Tada. Allah is inviting us for federal aid Allah run to Allah subhanho wa Taala ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is inviting us come to my Jana Vasayo. Elon Musk Farah, Tim Rob become what Janet in Agulhas summit will read that limit talking. Allah subhanaw

00:37:38 --> 00:38:16

taala is inviting those who have sinned while living in Ada far too far. He should turn over them and foster home, the Corolla for stuff thoroughly than OB Him. Those who committed immoral acts are committed sins, they after committing their sin remembered Allah and they asked Allah for forgiveness. Allah then says, well my young Vinoba in Allah, if Allah won't forgive your sins and who will forgive your sin, it has never happened. That a person has asked Allah for forgiveness sincerely, and Allah subhanaw taala hasn't forgiven that person for you to ask Allah and then to believe that Allah hasn't forgiven you, in itself is a state of disbelief, because a believer full

00:38:16 --> 00:38:44

heartedly believes in the Mercy of Allah fading the hula assumere Rohilla il como el Cafe Rouen indeed only the disbelievers become despondent, disheartened of the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala otherwise our Allah forgave a lady who committed Zina her life because she showed mercy to a dog. Otherwise our Allah took a man like Amina Tabata, the Allahu Anhu was a jet who lived in Jaya Helia and turned him into a meter what meaning?

00:38:45 --> 00:38:58

It was Allah subhanahu wa taala that took a whole nation out of darkness and gave them guidance. Yeah, Allah we are your creation to the only difference is my teacher My teacher used to say something he used to say.

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

The Islam that the Sahaba believed in who participated in the Battle of butter is the same Islam we believe in the Quran. They read the same Quran we read. The hadith they practice is the same Hadith we practice the Allah they called on in the Battle of blood that is the same Allah that we call on. The only difference is the people. Otherwise everything else was the same. Their hearts, their sincerity, their desire, their desperate to see what's different. And on our side, there is no desire there is no desperate see, when a person worships Allah, the attitude we carry, unfortunately, is that yeah, Allah we are doing you a favor by doing such that in front of you. Who

00:39:41 --> 00:39:59

can increase Allah subhanahu wa taala and his greatness that's not possible. Allah subhanaw taala honored us by giving us this opportunity. So in these closing moments of Ramadan, we should really internally reflect where am I spiritually? Have I cried in front of Allah subhanahu wa

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

Welcome to Allah hottie attic, as a profit center of Lebanon melody Allah one, or have my sins become so little in my eyes that I don't even view them as a crime anymore. When a person commits a one crime repeatedly that sin becomes small in their eyes, you guys understand that? I'll give an example. There is a person who has never been intoxicated in their entire life. If you were to offer them an intoxicant, either as a beverage or as something to smoke or sniff or whatever it is, if you were to offer them an intoxicant, what would they say? How would they react? Are you out of your mind? Like, you offered me an intoxicant? That's haram, I'd never do that. On the other hand, you

00:40:37 --> 00:40:46

have a person who is habitual and being intoxicated. You give that person some of that to get intoxicated, you give him a needle here, here's some heroin, shoot yourself up. Right?

00:40:47 --> 00:40:50

Now, I'm just not feeling it today. Take you on tomorrow, though.

00:40:51 --> 00:40:54

The sin becomes minimal. You guys understand that? When we were young,

00:40:56 --> 00:40:57

when we would watch TV with our parents.

00:40:58 --> 00:41:04

If even like, you know, if there was even a commercial our mom and dad would say, occupant gotta close your eyes, we sit like this.

00:41:05 --> 00:41:11

But today, a time has come where literally like, you know, people are watching TV and the stuff that's on there is like straight out like,

00:41:13 --> 00:41:39

but it's no longer a big thing anymore, because our hearts have become desensitized to sin. We don't feel the impact the greatness of sin anymore. I was with some friends who were watching the Superbowl. And in the commercials, there were some shampoo commercial. And I was like, stuff that a lie. Just like turned away. I was like, What are you guys doing? Why does this even playing in your home? They said shift, relax. Don't be all hardcore. It's only a shampoo commercial. And I thought to myself, subhanAllah look how comfortable we've become with sin.

00:41:40 --> 00:41:51

You know, when I was growing up, if someone watched that my dad would pull his butt out, you know, palletize the belt. He pulled his belt out and you'd get mad if you weren't if you were to do some kind of thing like that. And today, like so comfortable. It's not a big deal.

00:41:55 --> 00:41:57

A young man was sitting in front of me once.

00:41:58 --> 00:42:02

And his father was speaking. And he says to me, forget him. He's sick anyway.

00:42:03 --> 00:42:08

I said Allah hawk. Is this what you say to your father? He's sick anyway.

00:42:09 --> 00:42:44

I don't have a problem. Listen to your father. He's older. I respect him. But you use language like this about your father. He's a chef. It's normal in my house. This is how we all speak to each other. This is the state we've reached. That's everyone know who her you know who are in the law who are them. There are some times we think of things being literal, but by Allah, they are great. Our hearts have taken sins to be casual. We don't view them as big sins anymore. We don't view the weight of sins anymore. Otherwise, how do we understood the weight of our actions? Our hearts would cry to Allah subhanahu wa Tada. You know?

00:42:46 --> 00:42:47

The poet says

00:42:48 --> 00:43:17

Khaled vinnova Surya Raha what Kabira Ha, ha. Oh person who has Taqwa a person who is conscious of Allah, leave sins, whether they are great or small. Khaled Vinoba leave since Sahira ha ha Kabira. The small ones and the big ones that took off or person of consciousness or personal Taqwa? Lotta Tirana. Sorry, rotten. Don't be little small sins, for in the jiba Allah Minahasa because mountains are made of pebbles to

00:43:18 --> 00:43:27

one day, these pebbles, they add up, they add up they add up and then they become mountains and then you're accountable. But Allah subhanaw taala in front of them. So my closing remarks of this talk.

00:43:28 --> 00:43:56

First things first. Every good deed that you do in Ramadan should translate into you becoming a better human being. Don't separate your social life from your spiritual life. That will be the beginning of your spiritual downfall. Islam is not restricted to the four walls of the masjid rather it follows you wherever you go. And every bother every vicar, every Salah every dua should ultimately make you a better person. The second thing,

00:43:57 --> 00:44:18

doing good deeds is one thing. The second thing which is more important, actually, is preserving those good deeds. The third thing as you live your life, remind yourself that this could be my last moment. Tonight couldn't be that last night. Just because Death hasn't come yet doesn't mean it's not going to come at all.

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

I can guarantee that and you can guarantee yourself your final moments will come. How those final moments will be is fully dependent on how you spend these moments now. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the way you live is the way you will die and the way you die is the way you will be resurrected. When a person dies in an honorable way, when a beloved of Allah dies Allah subhanaw taala honors that person and repair to Allah Ya Allah honor our souls to and when a person is obeys. Allah is forgetful of Allah, negligent of Allah doesn't even acknowledge Allah subhanahu wa taala at all in their life. Allah is not even a part of that person's

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

schedule not even a part of that person's needs he never, he has no bond with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. When this person dies Allah subhanaw taala also has no desire to meet that person. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, my hub Allah Allah, whoever longs and desires loves to meet Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola also loves to meet that person too.

00:45:23 --> 00:46:07

Oh man, curry Holika Hola. And whoever has no interest in meeting Hola, curry. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Also has no interest in meeting you either. Yeah, Allah. Give our hearts the ability to yearn for you. Yeah, Allah. Give this heart the ability to desire your pleasure and your obedience. And aalameen brighten these hearts up. Clear these hearts remove the darkness and rust. Yeah, Allah allow these eyes to cry in front of you. Yeah, Allah allow these eyes to cry in front of you. Yeah, Allah these eyes have been dry for too long. Our hearts are stained in our sins in anatomy and we live a life of misery with sheath on with having a shackle around our neck, pulling us in any

00:46:07 --> 00:46:48

Yeah, Allah give us the tofield to love the recitation of the Quran. To enjoy our sujood to enjoy Vickery.

Yeah, Allah, it's insincere. But you know Allah Allah mean this is our attempt at pleasing you. Allah Allah Allah mean don't turn away from us. Yeah Allah if you turn away from us who will we
