my dear brothers and sisters,
we are currently in the time of the year
when we see a change
in the environment around us
and so we see the leaves change in color
and we see them after they have changed color
that they start to fall and become scattered
and blown by the winds.
My dear brothers and sisters,
we see this every single year.
But how many of us have stopped to think and reflect
over this phenomenon
something that Allah subhanho wa Taala has brought our attention to in Oberon not just in one place,
but in two different
Allah subhanho wa Taala uses this phenomenon to describe a reality
a reality that we all do.
And so in the first example of loss of Hannah what
he says well the regular who method and hierarchy
mean a similar effect
at present to them
of water that we send from the sky
rain that comes down and then it mingles it mixes with the vegetation in the earth.
this rain it produces fruit it produces vegetation.
It brings the dead land to life.
It brings greenery
and beauty to our I use
karma and then Amina summer
and then what happens after that for her she mentored through her Yeah.
It isn't forever
it turns dry
and then it becomes scattered to the ruler Yeah, blown away by the wings makanda logo
and a lot is powerful, able to do everything
says, Yeah, I love
to do like, what was he?
that the life of this world is nothing but
beauty, adornment, luxury,
boosting with one another
and competing with one another for wealth and children.
And then Allah gives us the example cometa Lee awaiting
further our houmous for raw retana
It is like
this rain that comes down from the sky
causing the plants to grow, causing the farmer to become filled with delay at what he sees.
it turns dry wizard
and then becoming scattered debris
my funeral to meanwhile you will feel as guilty as
well no zero to me no law.
In the US euro is either severe punishment or forgiveness
and satisfaction from a law. Well then how to do it?
the enjoyment of this dunya is nothing but
a deceptive enjoyment.
What do we learn from these two examples that loss of Hannah who represents these two parables? What we learn are two descriptions of this of this dunya that we live in.
The first is that it is temporary, it is short.
Just like this greenery, this vegetation, it has its season. But then it finishes.
And just like these leaves that we see today, scattered on the ground,
we too one day
will become scattered debris, but not above the earth, but rather scattered booms beneath.
The second description and reality of the dounia is
that it is deceptive.
Its enjoyment is deceptive.
It's not a real enjoyment. And that's why the people are the dunia who chase after the dunya they're never satisfied.
Today they have what they aim for of the dunya they attained their pleasure.
But they want more they turn to something else. And this is how they continue until the D
until the D they have to visit their greens and Hakuna takato Hector's or Tamil Nadu
this piling up of the dunya Allah tells us this piling up of the dunya it has deceived us
Till we visit.

Mario brothers sisters
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day was walking through the markets of Medina.
And he noticed
a small skinny Lamb
that was dead and lying on the ground.
So if you went to it,
and held it by its ear, and asked the companions
who among you wants this for a deal?
So they said yes to the law.
None of us would want it. Even if we were to be giving it free.
What would we do with something like this? When if it was alive, it would be worthless because it's skinny.
So how about now that is dead?
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He said well, why
Let's do one more Allah He,
is worthless in the sight of Allah, then this skinny dead lamb is to you in your eyes.
But who will realize that
who will realize how worthless the dunya is that we day in day out after
they will realize it those
who give thought
to think ponder over these examples that Allah gives, and that his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives us
it is the who will truly understand how worthless this duty is.
Those who understand how worthless it is.
They will treat it as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam treated it
when he was presented their duty
and they said Yasuda law, take this cushion. We see that you lie on the ground, you sleep on the ground on this hard met.
They said take this cushion, the profits and
I even this dude.
Like a man who travels and he comes across a tree
and he stops to take rest in exchange for an hour. And then he moves on.
Those who understand how worthless this dunya is, they will treat it as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded us couldn't fit dunia.
Be in this dunya as if you are a traveler.
You only take of this dunya what you need. You don't hoard it, you don't chase after it.
piling it up.
Those who understand how it works. This is jr is they treat it as their temporary home
not as their permanent home.
Think about it. If you are given the choice between either living in a mansion for a week,
or living in a simple mind his tone
for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
If you were wise, you would obviously choose to live in a modest home.
But the foolish ones, they are the ones who will say no. Let me live in that mansion for just one week.
If you are given a choice between
traveling on a donkey
that will take you
to a palace
And you are told that this will be your home forever.
If you are given a choice between that
and writing in a luxurious car that will take you to a tent in the desert. What will you choose? That my dear brothers and sisters is the reality
is the reality of the difference between an agenda and
we read the Koran
but seldom do we ponder over its verses.
Look at how Allah compares the people of Jin na and the people of the hellfire.
Throughout the power and the people of Jenna are those who abandoned
they are those who they don't hear was taken away from them
because they prefer the
horrible the people of the Hellfire they are those who enjoyed it.
who enjoy the dunya and everything
My dear brothers and sisters, when the Roma rhodiola when he saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in the state that he was
lying on the ground on a simple map. He wept. He cried.
So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him Yeah, Why do you cry?
The Emperor of Persia
and the emperor of Rome,
are living into luxuries that they're living in.
And then I see you,
who are far more valuable in the sight of a lot and then
and this is why.
And so Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Oh,
a total LA, a total la takuna.
are not satisfied that for them is a duty
for us is
that my dear brothers and sisters,
is the reality of those who understand
the reality of this dunya
which was inherent compared
to what we see today.
As we see the leaves, turning color, turning red, yellow and then Brown, and then falling to the ground,
becoming scattered and blown away by the winds. My dear brothers and sisters, this is a reality of the journey
that everyone is chasing after soon it is coming to an end. And when it comes to an end, it will be too late.
Or we'll all that we will be taking with us
to our Greaves on that day.
The only thing that we will be taking with us is our demons. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, You have to eat.
Only three things follow the dead person to his grave, and who wanna know who
his family, his wealth, and his deep biology isn't any
two of these three, returned back to the
only one remains with him in his grave.
his wealth and his children returned to the dunya
and his deeds rooming with him which millionaire on the face of this earth, had his fortunes follow with him and become buried with him in his grave?
Which King had everything that he had to follow with him to follow Him and remain with him in his grave?
Today he is in his grave, just like the poorest person on the face of this earth.
And that my dear brothers and sisters,
is the reality of the
battle go what do you what
are we one of that anyway? He can be Murphy he mean it What the heck He has also loosened
