00:01:46--> 00:01:52

Brothers and sisters in Islam, Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:01:54--> 00:02:00

one of the greatest bounties bestowed upon a believer

00:02:01--> 00:02:06

is firmness on the religion, steadfastness.

00:02:07--> 00:02:17

Specially at these times, which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described it so many ways to be a time

00:02:19--> 00:02:22

when the heart changes.

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

In one authentic hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a person will

00:02:34--> 00:02:39

wake up in the morning believing and at night, he would actually disbelieve

00:02:40--> 00:02:44

us before Roger Lumina or UMC cafe LA.

00:02:45--> 00:02:50

Mina will use Coca Cola and at night

00:02:51--> 00:02:57

he will be a believer, and in the morning he will again change

00:02:58--> 00:03:12

another authentic hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam mentioned that your mobile Roger Oulu, the Kabira module for Julio, a tiny mechanic

00:03:13--> 00:03:31

that a believer will pass by the grave of another believer who passed away and he would actually make a wish he would actually make a wish that he is dead, of course to preserve his Deen

00:03:32--> 00:03:35

This is something that is permissible in Islam.

00:03:37--> 00:04:11

that a person may supplicate that what jahleel hyah Xia that Elena min Kula hive. What jollys mo Tara, Atlanta min coolish of Allah make death a relief for us from all time of evil. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam canneto were either our fitness and becoming fat our fellow economists to name and Oh Allah if you have ordained

00:04:12--> 00:04:15

at trial, which the people would feel

00:04:17--> 00:04:23

Oh Allah sees our souls so that we do not join them in that failure.

00:04:26--> 00:04:35

Another Hadith we're actually the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described that AlkaViva Allah Dini can be

00:04:37--> 00:04:47

the one who's holding his Deen is like the one who was holding is like the one who was holding a cool a piece of fire basically in his hand.

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

So here we are, we're talking about us being steadfast, being firm about the religion of Allah and not

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

This steadfast in bringing about children.

00:05:07--> 00:05:26

So you need to be yourself steadfast on the religion. And at the same time, you need to be steadfast in bringing up your children so that they are steadfast as well. So the firmness is the karma, or the steadfastness

00:05:27--> 00:05:31

you're supposed to pass it on to your children.

00:05:33--> 00:05:35

Brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:05:37--> 00:05:41

The importance of steadfastness

00:05:43--> 00:05:47

not only in this world, not only at the time of death,

00:05:48--> 00:05:51

it is in the Day of Resurrection.

00:05:54--> 00:06:02

Howdy fille Surat, the Hadith, which describes the condition

00:06:03--> 00:06:07

of the Muslims on that bridge on the top of Hill,

00:06:09--> 00:06:25

which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described it to be the coup minissha it was a hot domina safe, sharper than the age of assault and thinner than a strand of hair.

00:06:26--> 00:06:36

You know, when we cross and I'm talking about the people of though hate the people of La ilaha illa Allah, because the people of Hill they will be thrown on him.

00:06:37--> 00:06:55

But actually the Muslims, the people who said La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah in this life, in order for them to make it to gin, they have to cross on the top of the bridge, which is on the top of Hill.

00:06:56--> 00:07:04

And this is how we understand colavita Allah de sola Timonium, we're in min kume illa.

00:07:06--> 00:07:22

Allah Allah, deca hackmann nakiya. There is none of you but we'll go to Hill meaning cross over it on the top of the bridge, indeed, something that Allah Subhana Allah ordained

00:07:23--> 00:07:33

Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in to authentic hadith to narrators. And we say the history of the Allah Juan Oliveira

00:07:35--> 00:07:42

categorize the Muslims into three categories, Nalgene musallam

00:07:43--> 00:07:50

one group who will be saved and they will cross over that bridge with no harm.

00:07:52--> 00:07:54

Secure, delivered.

00:07:55--> 00:08:17

One Mark Lucian motion. And the second category of Muslims, they will be scratched by these hooks will kill early will have a thief will Hasek which are around the syrup the bridge. So some Muslims will be actually scratched and then released.

00:08:18--> 00:08:31

And the third time what to do shouldn't be here in a region. And the third time they will be around it up into Hill. But we believe that because of the hate later on, they will come out.

00:08:32--> 00:08:37

Now Alabama, Toby Rahim Allah in his book.

00:08:39--> 00:09:01

He said this, the way that you will cross on the bridge, on the Day of Resurrection, in your way to gentlemen, is a reflection of how consistent you are, how steadfast you are, how firm you are, on the religion in this world.

00:09:03--> 00:09:35

So if you are consistent, of course, el Gamal Allah subhana wa Taala perfection and I'm not saying that you're not going to commit a sin at all. That's not what I'm saying about all sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said khulumani, Adama hapa all the children of Adam are sinners. But again, we have a curriculum in how to leave the sin and come back to that straight path again. So if you find yourself getting off,

00:09:37--> 00:09:52

if you find yourself getting off that bridge, that straight path in the dunya you just come back make Toba make a stefarr start for Allah and repent and come back to Allah subhana wa Tada. We're levina in the

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

schatten our vellamo fuzu veka la have a stone thoroughly the movie him

00:10:00--> 00:10:27

Women young Pharaoh, Luba Illa, Allahu Allah Musa. Follow me Allah moon, they do not insist on the sin. Rather, they go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So here is steadfastness firmness on the religion will benefit me. And you and I swear by Allah, I'm reminding myself with this talk more than you.

00:10:28--> 00:10:36

You know, it's not easy to be firm on that path of Eman path of faith,

00:10:38--> 00:10:46

list, comma. And this is something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said to a companion,

00:10:47--> 00:10:51

whose name is Sophia, ignore Abdullah or Kenyatta who

00:10:53--> 00:11:11

had the last word. Amara, well, how do you feel Lima Muslim, he came to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam and he said to him, your rasulillah messenger of Allah polyfill Islamic colon, let us know and I had them.

00:11:13--> 00:11:15

Tell me something about Islam,

00:11:16--> 00:11:20

that I will not ask anyone else after you.

00:11:21--> 00:11:25

As if Give me the essence, give me the

00:11:26--> 00:12:03

overall naziha that I will not need to ask anyone else afterwards Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made it crystal clear to him, here is the challenge cool men to be let say I believe in Allah foma stop him, then be firm, be consistent. Saying is easy. Saying it is easy. Even the physique for some Muslims, a lot of Muslims do have the we call it elemental movement or the overall of the

00:12:04--> 00:12:12

but the application of the plastic requires a lot of efforts requires a lot of

00:12:14--> 00:12:31

vigilance if I may use the word that you're always questioning yourself. Always calling your nephew to account what is known to be more hazardous to neffs that you're not letting yourself just you know, go with the flow and so forth.

00:12:32--> 00:12:45

Subhana Allah, here is the karma, like I mentioned with benefit me and you're on that bridge it what are the Hadith of the live nosode

00:12:46--> 00:12:50

Hadith sunon very happy I believe that

00:12:51--> 00:13:02

the person when he is scratched and released, and he crosses that bridge, he would look back at the slot and he will say Subhana levina journeymen

00:13:03--> 00:13:11

glorified and exalted The one who saved me from you that you know I was delivered I was not taken down.

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

Another time when really list the karma helps us a lot is the time when we depart and leave this world and somehow Allah. The scholars they say the most difficult times on a human being are the three transitional stages. When we're born, that is a very difficult time being attacked by shaitan immediately called sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Mohammed Mahmoud in you lead Illa was the Hello sorry Ha. Any newborn? As soon as he comes into this world, immediately he begins crying. And then Rasul salallahu alayhi wa sallam explains why, because Satan, the Genie, attacks him except Maria and her son as he says Salam. The second most difficult time on a human being is the time of death, which is

00:14:22--> 00:14:51

again the second transitional time leaving this world and joining the hereafter in the green. And the third difficult time most difficult time is the time when we arise from beneath the ground for reckoning. And this is why we notice that our lead will holla Isa Li Salaam wa here the made this

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

this is the wording on the tongue of Prophet Isa alayhi salatu salam fee surah

00:15:00--> 00:15:22

When he said was Salam O Allah Yeah, yo mama to Wyoming moved to Wyoming obas Oh, hi. Oh Allah, I want peace from you, when I'm born into this world, when I shall rise again on the Day of Resurrection And when they die as well.

00:15:24--> 00:15:38

Now, the Quran tells us and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that an individual who was consistent who maintained

00:15:39--> 00:16:27

you know, a steady relationship with Allah subhanaw taala in this world, at the time of death, angels will descend upon that person will give him the glass hiding in melodien accord who are a boon Allah. Again, if you notice it's the same exact thing that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said to Sophia, no, no Abdullah, in the Latina meant to be in Medina call Rob buena la from Stockton to muster calm, the same exact thing. Those who said, Our Lord is Allah, and then they were steadfast in our masala had a Latina manual, why musataha that nsra he will mela

00:16:29--> 00:17:03

angels descend upon them. A call to Jamal Quran Abdullah live now Best of the Allahumma at the time of death, angels would descend upon them at the time of death aleteia hafele Fear not, fear not fear not us. These are the angels. These don't have you Filmora ignaz in autofill mode, that the group of angels who descend before the arrival of the angel of death, as soon as the person who's about to die sees them of course,

00:17:05--> 00:17:34

angels for the first time he gets the opportunity to see them. He scares he the scare him he gets scared. Immediately they comfort him a letter hafele fear of not now, the moment that he recognizes that he's about to die. He begins thinking about his family, his will and what he will leave behind and that may grieve him and let the whole world

00:17:35--> 00:17:51

grieve not wherever she will. Jenna will I'm sure will Jenna and they give him the Glatt piling of Jenna at the stage, by the way, that person would actually wish to die. You HIV bullecourt Allah

00:17:53--> 00:18:26

the Hadith which confused the eyes of Allah Juana Holly savasana, and I wish I was dead listening. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, men have Bella Casa La Habra, La Jolla. Woman Carrie Haleakala. Katie hum la Holika whoever loans and loves the meaning of Allah, Allah will love the meaning of this person. Of course, the companions including our Isha omona, viola Juana,

00:18:27--> 00:18:34

our mother, they know that the only time we will see Allah is when we die.

00:18:35--> 00:19:09

Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if you had if you're a Muslim, in the context of talking about the Antichrist, someone who will actually come into this world and he will claim that is Allah. So the Prophet is telling us the fact that you see him, he's tangible to you. This is the first evidence to refute that He is Allah because you're not supposed to see Allah Subhana Allah in this dunya alum, a necom. lentil owner of the comb has to be informed that you will not be able to see a Lost Planet Allah until you die.

00:19:10--> 00:19:24

Knowing that the only time that you're going to love to meet Allah, you're going to you're going to see Allah is when you die. So consequently if you love to see Allah then you must love death.

00:19:25--> 00:20:00

Like you see, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says man a hug balika Allah, if you love to meet Allah, Allah who love your meeting. That means you must love death as a premise to meet Allah. Via said, Why you motel rasulillah, who among us doesn't hate death all messenger philosophy is not that big. And then he explained that scene, which I was describing to you, that when a person is going through the agony of death, angels of mercy will do

00:20:01--> 00:20:05

And they would give him the glass hiding aletta half a wallet,

00:20:06--> 00:20:44

whatever Shirou bilgin Attila t equal to two I don't. So when they are given that glad tiding then they would actually detach from this world and they would love to meet Allah subhana wa tada again, I'm mentioning all of this on the basis of what what will entitle you to that favor to that bounty. Mr. Karma, that's my subject. If you want angels, who come at the time of death to give you glad tiding and to comfort you and to help you with the transitional

00:20:45--> 00:21:05

stage, which is departing from this world and joining the hereafter. Certainly, this the karma is the password in Medina kado Allah buena Allahu Docomo that he will mela eager to aletta ha fu wala

00:21:08--> 00:21:42

What about this world? sapan Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says addressing the jinn and this would apply to us to the Quran as well for the human insulin Jin yeah Mashallah Jeannie well in see both for ba ba Kuma insanity intention to get dBm Allah subhanho wa Taala is addressing them.

00:21:43--> 00:21:52

and Nevada if the stay Allah parihaka, lowly Salatin, Mr team, indeed

00:21:56--> 00:21:57

00:22:38--> 00:23:02

hoping for the reward from Allah subhana wa Tada. So, this donia also will become easy beat Miller He died for these are some of the things that should motivate us to apply, implement the means which can help us to be steadfast, and hopefully we can pass on,

00:23:03--> 00:23:19

you know, steadfastness to our children, and even us being steadfast in upbringing our children as Muslims, and as believers. Now we come to the essence of my talk,

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

which then means

00:23:24--> 00:23:28

how you achieve that, how can you achieve that?

00:23:29--> 00:23:33

as well, I'll tell you two

00:23:34--> 00:23:38

stories. But after I take a sip of coffee, if you don't mind,

00:23:39--> 00:23:43

which will show you it's not in your hand, not in my hand.

00:23:44--> 00:23:50

The whole deal is not in your hand nor in my hand is in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala

00:23:52--> 00:23:53

only velyka

00:23:54--> 00:24:06

O'Hara the Holocene How will it ever overtake what a holodeck activity lamudi in the supima, Allah Serato must have been.

00:24:11--> 00:24:13

The first example

00:24:15--> 00:24:18

is Hanif Abdullah das,

00:24:20--> 00:24:25

San Ignacio de ser ad, or of the last one

00:24:26--> 00:24:35

regarding the Battle of the Battle of hiber. We know that the Battle of Heidelberg so many days

00:24:38--> 00:24:45

it took in order to conclude and finish like the fourth race of the

00:24:46--> 00:24:51

keytab we're really will build that the Muslims had a hard time

00:24:53--> 00:24:53

conquering

00:24:55--> 00:24:58

they would go and fight and then at night they will overnight

00:25:01--> 00:25:14

At one stage, the companions noticed this Sahabi, who really does an excellent job throughout the day. He is fighting really bad.

00:25:15--> 00:25:21

It's very courageous is out there. So the companions would sit around the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam,

00:25:22--> 00:25:26

and they would talk and praise his work.

00:25:28--> 00:25:39

Then the shocking piece of news comes out of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will lay the lay on to Parnell. However, he does not speak out of desire.

00:25:40--> 00:25:46

He receives it, he receives the revelation for him, salatu salam to make that statement.

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

Allah who I mean, nor,

00:25:50--> 00:25:54

indeed, he is a dweller of hell.

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

The companions are surprised

00:26:00--> 00:26:03

how in the world, this person is at the winner of Hill.

00:26:05--> 00:26:11

So one companion The following day, he made it his job.

00:26:12--> 00:26:15

He made it his task, to keep an eye on him

00:26:17--> 00:26:19

as what we call now surveillance cameras.

00:26:23--> 00:26:26

And he watched that same person

00:26:28--> 00:26:31

getting injured in the battlefield,

00:26:32--> 00:26:37

and he could not persevere and endure the pains of his injury.

00:26:39--> 00:26:43

So he placed the tip of his shoulders on his chest,

00:26:44--> 00:26:50

and the opposite side to the ground, the rear of it to the ground, and he killed himself.

00:26:52--> 00:26:54

Basically, he committed suicide.

00:26:56--> 00:27:21

This companion came back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and immediately he looked at him and he said, A Chateau La ilaha illallah wa Chateau Naka, Rasulullah idol witness that there is no deity worthy of my worship, except Allah subhanaw taala and you are the Messenger of Allah that means you are conveying something that Allah revealed to you.

00:27:23--> 00:27:25

And then he explained to him what happened.

00:27:26--> 00:27:29

Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made that statement,

00:27:31--> 00:27:35

which is really scary. You know, it really scares

00:27:36--> 00:27:37

in radula.

00:27:39--> 00:27:45

Leah MANOVA Amaya Legion as we tawi

00:27:46--> 00:27:56

a person who will be doing the acts of the people of Jin meaning Salas aka he's going by the book for a long time.

00:27:57--> 00:27:59

But here is the comforting

Moriarty Jani, the comforting restriction Thema Abdul leanness in the eyes of the beholder, in the eyes of people,

00:28:12--> 00:28:13

as if he's doing this for the people,

00:28:15--> 00:28:24

until he is about to die, he will do one of the acts of the people of Hill for yokomoto de

00:28:25--> 00:28:30

cada sallallahu, wasallam enamel, Melville Hawa team.

00:28:33--> 00:28:38

00:28:43--> 00:28:44

and know what

00:28:45--> 00:28:53

you buy for Allah Muhammad Ali dhammakaya Muslim inherited that a person will be raised doing what he died doing.

00:28:55--> 00:28:57

Whenever sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

Africa

00:29:25--> 00:29:35

Imagine this person will will arise from beneath the ground in the Day of Resurrection saying Rebecca lahoma bake lobby Kayla Sheree Kayla Kayla bake

00:29:36--> 00:29:43

shed is imagine this man he's being braised by people.

00:29:44--> 00:29:47

But what did he lack? he lacked the

00:29:49--> 00:29:55

truthfulness fullness. So the first means for you to be steadfast

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

with Allah subhana wa tada is to be true

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

truthful in seeking it

00:30:02--> 00:30:03

in seeking it

00:30:05--> 00:30:10

and the one who will give it to you is Allah that means you seek it from Allah

00:30:11--> 00:30:14

being truthful about it, don't fake it.

00:30:15--> 00:30:15

Yeah.

00:30:19--> 00:30:24

When he used to narrate this hadith we know in more than one occasion he fainted.

00:30:25--> 00:30:33

What Hadith I'm talking about the first three types of Muslims who will be the meal for Hill.

00:30:34--> 00:30:42

They will be dragged what official Hadith Muslim, dragged in their faces into Hill, not a thief.

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

Not an adulterer.

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

Not a killer.

00:30:49--> 00:30:50

The original half of

00:30:51--> 00:30:54

it. That's why before I used to faint,

00:30:55--> 00:30:59

because you have to first accuse yourself.

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

You have to accuse them who laughs at a flashy layer from will alto IE that you question your nuts first. For a while before I would faint when he reads this Hadith, because he's afraid he's one of those.

00:31:14--> 00:31:29

You know, he is also teaching the religion and he's concerned that he is one of those children half of Ireland in one wedding. We're fairly alone. joab a generous person

00:31:31--> 00:31:40

who gave it given his his wealth. He given his his his money with that let's look at the third one like so I'm gonna

00:31:41--> 00:31:49

like the man we were talking about the Russell solem talked about that he's aware of him. Shaheed he died in the battlefield

00:31:50--> 00:32:09

for what they lacked, truthfulness, truthfulness that you're really true in your demand in your request. That's the first story compare this with with Hadith of the woman I believe is the narrator if I'm not mistaken, Fisher mm. And I say

00:32:10--> 00:32:13

Edwin, who accepted Islam in Mecca

00:32:15--> 00:32:19

and he did not leave the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one time

00:32:21--> 00:32:25

there is a battle he's out there. There is an expedition out there.

00:32:27--> 00:32:29

And in some experts of Hadith

00:32:31--> 00:32:44

in a this also happened on the hybrid that the Rasul Allah wa sallam spelled for him some of the spoils of war. Yeah, they also saw solemn notice that his own was there, for he wanted to give him something special here.

00:32:45--> 00:32:47

So he booted to the side.

00:32:48--> 00:32:51

And he called upon one of his companions Go and call him for me.

00:32:53--> 00:33:00

They brought him back in his bedroom, Jani. The bedrooms are very straightforward, very hot.

00:33:02--> 00:33:04

They don't have that.

00:33:05--> 00:33:12

Bullet tickle cannon language, they get to the point for us when Salalah alayhi wa sallam said to him, this is for you.

00:33:13--> 00:33:21

You know what he said to the Prophet? sallallahu wasallam. What is this Maha Maha Maha mala has a tomato

00:33:22--> 00:33:27

formula for this. In the tomato I fully believes in you,

00:33:28--> 00:33:34

beside him in heaven. So I get hit with an arrow right here. So I die so I go to gentlemen.

00:33:37--> 00:33:38

And he left

00:33:39--> 00:33:41

shuffle.

00:33:42--> 00:33:45

The following day, they found him dead in the battlefield.

00:33:47--> 00:33:51

The convenience came rushing through Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam

00:33:53--> 00:33:55

for Kala Hua Hua.

00:33:56--> 00:34:06

Is he the one who and he asked how he died? He said Dr. rasulillah he was hit with an arrow right here.

00:34:08--> 00:34:08

Right here.

00:34:09--> 00:34:16

00:34:21--> 00:34:25

He was truthful with Allah and allow us to food him.

00:34:26--> 00:34:39

This is the first step to gain steadfastness. You cannot fake it. I always like to say the Don't be blessed with Allah. I can be blessed with you. You can be blessed with me. But what Allah

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

Allah

00:34:44--> 00:34:55

Allah subhanaw taala knows the secret and knows what's below the secret before even becomes a secret for a long haul in a uni will not have

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

your agenda must be a listicle

00:35:00--> 00:35:48

that you want to be Mr. Clean and that is why you requested from Allah Subhana Allah that we can call this sincerity. We can call it whatever you want to call it. But you must be truthful in seeking this. You cannot seek it with the dunya you cannot combine it with the dunya it has to be pure for Allah subhanho wa Taala the second means here and I want to finish in Sharma in 10 minutes I don't want to prolong this. The second means quickly here is how the thoburn or the Allah one will Hadith Raja hoo had banned FISA he have no magic professional even hiding his authentic are also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says is 13

00:35:57--> 00:35:59

You know the best way

00:36:00--> 00:36:51

that line one and torso was explained so many ways by the scholars of Hadith. But the best explanation that I love to adopt is if you try to keep track of the means that can help you to be steadfast on the religion. He can keep track of it. First in the recitation of the Quran, all type of imagine from the morning how many acts that we missed me and you so many. So if you want to keep track of what can keep you steadfast, you're going to be busy 24 seven, and I mean 24 seven, that you're not even going to have time for anything else, but to apply certain commands. at any second there is something to apply. But Rasul Allah, Allah wa sallam is telling you, this is against the

00:36:51--> 00:36:59

human nature, because you're a human being, you're never going to be able to implement and apply every little thing in the religion.

00:37:01--> 00:37:05

Man Allah knows when the messengers and the prophets were able to do it

00:37:07--> 00:37:18

was also allowed to sell when he banned his companions from El Sol for song from ban them from fasting every day continuously.

00:37:19--> 00:37:27

They said, tata falada Rasul Allah, you do this on messenger of Allah, kala India v2 endora. Money was clean.

00:37:28--> 00:37:34

Don't Don't compare yourself to me. I overnight with my Lord He feeds me and he provides for me that's

00:37:36--> 00:37:43

Hadith nasaka hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah says that when we go back home soldier

00:37:45--> 00:37:59

00:38:24--> 00:38:50
