Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Ulez Allah al Amin will be Hina studying, although suddenly all of Sallim ala Tamil MBA he will he MommyCon Celene Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine Allah Marisa Illa my janitor who says no one has either Sheikh salah or vs zero Allah to answer with him will hire OB can strain. We thank Allah Allah bless that he will Jalon for having gathered us here today. And we ask Allah subhana wa Tala to surround us with the mullah Iike and to cause his mercy and his Sakina to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR even more salat wa salam, and those whom he has mentioned with them. I mean,
the Quran is the word of Allah, Allah subhana wa Tada. We know this. Yet we don't ponder over this fact when reading and pondering over the Quran. So, if we think of it, Allah, Allah, Allah is that he will JLL spoke these words to Gibreel Allahu Salatu was Salam who then came down to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So that which we recite today is actually the spoken word of Allah who will is that you will Jalil. Hence we find that when we look into the Quran, there are so many lessons to be derived from it. There are so many things that we can learn in order for us to navigate through our lives. Allah, Allah is that he will Joanne has given us the sport and as a
blessing from him. Now,
this Ramadan Insha Allah we will be talking about life lessons from the Quran, or at least for 10 days of Ramadan for these 10 days of the Ramadan, the beginning of Ramadan, we will be talking about life lessons derived from the Quran. The first lesson that I'd like to derive from the Quran for life is none other than death itself. So Allah Akbar is that you will Gln he made us and brought us into existence, and our mothers gave birth to us. And from this point, from when they gave birth to us until our death, we find that we think that this is our life. And this is our existence all together. But in reality, we existed before we came into this world, and we will exist long after we
have died. So the moment from birth until death is simply a period of our existence, a period of our existence. So, when a child is born, we naturally assume that this is the beginning of the life. And when that person dies, we assume that they are gone and it is over. But Allahu Bucha is that you will Joanne says, Who known as
input to email, or in to a phone and would you like me a woman?
That every soul shall taste death and indeed you will be gifted you will be given your reward on the day of piano. So we existed before we came into this world and we will exist long after we leave this world we came from Allah Allah, Allah is that he will July and we are going to him.
Suleiman even know Abdul Malik was a king or a Khalif and he asked one of the people that was close to him, he says Mallanna Naka will note. Why is it that we despise death? Why is it that we despise death? And the answer came Leanna Kuma Martin dunya come walk her road to move Roku for intercom ticker Hoonah and Turkey luminol Rahmani ll hub that it is because you have built your dunya and you have destroyed your akhira you've left it you haven't built that up. So you hate to move from that which is built to that which is destroyed. You see, if I were to tell you that you are going to be living in this room for 10 days or
30 days. And after that you will have to move to a permanent residence. Would it make sense for you to start building that room renovating it, ensuring that it is luxurious putting the best of technology in it? It doesn't make sense. Why? Because you are moving after 510 20 days you will move to your permanent residence.
But what we do with this dunya what we do with this dunya is Allah has told us you are here for a set period of time, you are here for a short while, but we build it up. And we ensure that we have the best of the dunya the best of spouses, the best of houses, the best of businesses. And not only that, leave that aside, not only that we engage in that which he told us not to engage in yet we are here for a short while, why are we building the dunya? Why are we building the dunya? Why are we making it so luxurious, that when the time of death comes lalalalala I don't want to go, I don't want to go I don't want to leave it all behind. Because I've only built this up.
Allahu boulerice that he will Jalon has promised us that we will live this life for the next yet we build this life and we we disregard the next you see,
we can understand what our death will be like
by understanding the death of the ones who have left before us. Let us take the worst example example who one of the worst examples in history, feel alone? Most of us know that Iran was a bad man. He was an evil man he had that qualities and traits. If we look at what he uttered at the end of his life, he said amen to beyond be Haruno Musa, I have believed in the Lord of Harun and Musa Allah Habilis that you will JLL says
hello, Jen in animal seething is it now of your own that you want to believe when you have seen the angels when you have seen the unseen when you have seen that which is not seen in this world normally now you want to believe in it or if you're out FIRA out was a man who had committed atrocities on earth. He enslaved but Who is him, he killed the male children. He had done so many wrong things. So now when death came all of a sudden in fact, he had said, I am the LORD Almighty worship me that is what we are announcing. So now when the unseen was seen and he realized that I'm going to Allah, I'm going to my maker, all of a sudden, I believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala I've
surrendered to Allah Rapala is that you will, it was too late by then. Allah subhanahu wa taala says failure woman on a G can be bad and he Kalitta coonelly men called FATCA and so today we will preserve your body so that it may be a sign for those who come after you. You see that body. It is still there in the museum in Egypt for people to see for people to take heat from Allah who will is that he will Jalon preserve did for us to actually derive a lesson from it. And that lesson is that every one of us is going to go that was one of the worst people dying, one of the worst of people dying. And if we look at how you can Pilla Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best of
creation, his death was very different. He's passing on was very different. When his soul escaped his lips. He was looking up, he was ready to go to Allah subhanho wa taala. In fact, Aisha Radi Allahu Allah says that you are saying when you refer up many of graffiti Allah, but I want to go up to Allah. I want to meet Allah. I want to go back to my makeup. He was looking forward to this meeting with Allah herbalists that you will Jellal what was the difference between the two passings? The two deaths, one lived a tyrant one didn't care about Allah subhanahu Attallah one was not fearful of thrombolysis that he will July and the day that he meets Allah subhanho wa Taala and the
other he did, only and solely about Abu lacet He will July, man Uh huh
Buddy Allah, I have Billa Hooli pa woman carry hellicar Allah carry Hala, Julio ah, the one who loves to meet Allah. Allah loves to meet him and the one who dislikes to meet Allah, Allah dislikes to meet him. You see a surah allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was full of enthusiasm. He was ready to meet Allah habilis, that you will July, he had spent enough time on this world now that deaf had visited him. He was happy and pleased to meet Robin is that he will July. We want to know if we want to know what our lives will look like and what our deaths will look like. We only have to think to are we living like Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Or are we living like Iran?
We have to decide for ourselves. which path do we want to take? Will we live like Tehran? Or will we live like a surah allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the way we live is the way that we will die. The Way We Live is the way we will die. We can rest assured of that. And COVID COVID-19 has taught us something. It has taught us that death does not only visit the weak, the feeble, the elderly, death can visit anyone at any time. Anyone at any time. Tomorrow, the door can be knocked and it is time for you to go to Allah subhanho wa Taala and even the authority but all the Allahu Anhu he was once
passing by some graves. So he says
yeah, Hillel. KUBU oh people Oh companions of the graves addressing the people of the graves. Yeah, hello COBOL Oh companions of the grave in der sukeena. Indeed, your homes have been occupied by others. Were in the M word, Cosima. And indeed your wealth has been distributed amongst others. We're in Nisa, Alclad BlueChart. And indeed, the women folk have been married. Your women folk have been married. Have Mahabharata uma indena, firma Hubbell mind that this is the news that we have for you. So what is it of the news that you have for us? And then he said that Wallah, he, if these people of the grave were able to speak to us, they would have told us that were high yield Muay
Thai, duniya or whatever you reside in dunya Taqwa the best provision of this world is a Taqwa the fear of Allah subhanho wa taala. But obviously, the depth cannot speak. Obviously, they cannot communicate with us. But if they were to communicate with us, they would have told us that the best thing that you can do in this world is to fear Allah Our goal is that you will learn to fear Allah or police that you will Jarrell, you know, we don't want to get to Allah subhanho wa Taala and then regret and want to come back to this world. Allah who believes that he will Jelani describes this for us, those who lived for everything else besides him had
moodlemoot Oompah honour of being your own until this comes to him death visits him he says return me Allah take me back to the world I don't want to go now's not my time. Please Please take me back. And Allah subhana wa Tada says, Never
Allah subhanho wa Taala has promised that they will not return to it ever. So the fact that we are talking about this right here right now is a reminder to myself and yourselves that let us change today before we are visiting our graves. And before we get to Allah subhanho wa Taala and this person that would want to come back at the point of death, what does he want to come back to, to live in the dunya to enjoy of the
people of the opposite gender to do that which is wrong and haram to drink alcohol? No. When he sees the unseen then literally, amen. Oh, sorry, hon. FEMA.

hola habilis, that you will Joanne says that this person will actually say
He that returned me to the dunya so I can do some good deeds here Allah, I want to go and perform my salah I want to do my Hajj I want to give my Zakah yeah Allah returned me for this reason. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says Kela most definitely not, you will not return to it. Why? Because I have promised so I gave you this opportunity to do good deeds, and to worship me. Now that you have left this world, it is too late. You see, we started by talking about how our life is not only the life of this world, it started well before this in the world of souls, where the souls were together, and they met each other and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes to us, those who got to
meet each other there and liked each other in that world will like each other in this world as well. So those souls existed, our souls existed, Allah subhanahu Attallah, by allowing our mothers to give birth to us, encapsulated that soul in the body. So all it is, is that you have transitioned from that world, into a material existence where you have a body skin flesh, right? And then we will move on, into our graves where the soul once again comes out, and it leaves and goes back to its makeup. And then in that life, we will have a body a soul, a life a family. So as we can see, life is not only from our birth to the to death, but it is actually from before birth, right until after death,
and after death, it lasts forever and ever and ever and ever and there is no death. So, the intelligent human being is the one who sells this temporary world 5060 7080 years for that which is everlasting that which will never end in Allah hashtag Amina meaning full salmon while I'm word and Moon be and NEDA Moon Jen indeed Allah wat from the believers, they lives and the wealth for them who will be Jana in return for them will be Jana our boy has to and
the width of which will be the heavens and the earth. So Allah subhanahu wa Tada is saying, transact with me, deal with me, give me your life. Give me your wealth, and I will give you that which is everlasting. Which one is better Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, our lives on earth, or our life forever and ever and ever. We need to ask ourselves that we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to benefit us from the lesson and we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us the ability to understand and to put it into practice while he will run and it comes with that
