brothers and sisters in Islam
in Surah, Yaseen, Chapter 13,
even though the reason for its revelation
But the general meaning of the verse
teaches us a lesson that I wish to share with you today.
The verse says in No,
Why not to buma
wakulla in suena houfy.
Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying wehrli we will raise that
we will raise you up in No, no, in Mota, we're not to buma demo and we shall write everything that they have sent forward.
They have been
here is what I'm looking for what
and what they left behind them
in Simple English, the legacy
that you leave behind you in this world
the scholars yet what they say, Lillian San Jamar Oman
the human being has two lifespans.
The first one,
which is the shared mutual one that we all do, the number of years which Allah subhana wa Taala ordained for you to live
between 60 and 70, based on Hadith, Abu hurayrah tirmidhi less or more, the number of years but the second life span is what you make out of those 60 7080 130 years.
The acts which you do and they are left behind you.
Let me put it to you in down to earth English here.
There is no refutation of this statement that we are born to die all of us
Imagine we are born to die.
And this is the wisdom. Why? In chapter 12 Allah, Allah Subhana Allah Allah mentioned death before life. Deborah can levy big hill muku wahoo Allah Cooley Shea in Cadiz, LLP Hala, Mota, one higher.
The scholars they say, Why in the world that Allah subhanho wa Taala starts
with death, because this is what awaits you and me.
So you are here in this world are waiting to die. The question here, how will you be remembered?
Will you have any mention after your death?
This is what is meant by in na? No, no.
We're not to buma
yaku Sadie, in explaining this verse, these are deeds, which you initiated while you are living. And after you die, they still keep your mentioned. Keep your name.
Brothers and sisters in Islam.
One of the most fascinating statements that Omar mentioned in his bed
in his deathbed,
when he was tapped
a young man he had his moon entered. And he given him the glad tidings.
And this is something that we should do always remember those reminding those who are dying with what they have done, this would lift up the bar of whom,
because we should have good expectation about the loss of heinola time for the young man. And one of the words of this man is not bass, and one of the words, but he said to him absher ameerul momineen black riding ameerul momineen b busher en la isla and he started listing
all his credential.
You're with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and you've done all of this. And you're with Abu Bakr
and you've done all of this. And here you are, look at the achievements that Omar did during His khilafah His reign. You know what he said? was a lot he by Allah. Lo any word that to an afro German cafe, Khalfan, Keifa lallier Allah Allah
I wish only that I leave this world even
not in the negative not in the positive, just even breaking even
from that statement
if we're after a legacy, a good name, a good mention.
One of the first thing the first things that you should be keen on achieving during your lifespan brothers and sisters in Islam is don't leave a bad legacy.
Don't leave a bad name. What after having a good name a good thing. And in Islam By the way, they tell you they're old enough Santa Monica de mon Allah JAL bill masala Ha.
Meaning that you expelling
takes precedence over inviting benefits. Jani. One way to translate this meaning that first make sure that you leave this world with a good record with those you're dealing with. No bad name.
Muhammad, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the hadith of kata winner janessa pass by him.
So he made two statements. He said, most Terry,
I will most often mean
this person, whether he is dead,
or he is being rested from
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he made that statement after the journey.
As I pass, the companions asked him some lilavati USL m, O Messenger of Allah Rasool Allah mailloux steady warm al Mustafa min What do you mean by those two terms? caller he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the lab the movement
there believing slave.
Ethernet, when he dies is start off I mean Hemi dunia
Ella Mattila. Imagine this, when the believing slave passes away, he receives
from the agonist the pain the calamities the difficulties, brothers, sisters in Islam, this world is that testing place is enough a resting places not a place where you have your agenda, your agenda is in the hereafter. What
incentive fee cupboard Yeah, are you insane inac Acharya Illa beaker katha Han formula p. So, the believer is always in a state of
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Buddha in a very eloquent way when he said at dunia says, Look min virgin metal careful that dunya is the sill for the believer. Because everything that he does, he must have a command. He doesn't just act according to his our law.
And sometimes he gets tested by people. When he dies, he rests from all of this. And he goes to that ledger. He goes to the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. This is the first term. Look what I'm after, which is relevant to what I'm trying to say. woman was terraforming em a lab during surgery.
Indeed, the wicked slave that this obedience leave, even when he dies is thought or harming.
One pillar was shadow.
Emergency. People rest from him.
The houses rest from him. The buildings will be like the only buildings that trees rest from him. Animals rest from him. Why? Because he's a harmful agent. He's a harming person. He harms people. So this is the first legacy that you should be keen.
It doesn't matter that you pray five times you make HUD every year but and then you go on Han peel back by people gossip, steal, cheat my info either. My info doesn't work this way. It doesn't work this way. In Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he defined define the Muslim,
all Muslim, the true Muslim men selling muesli Muna mill, the Zen, he is the one the rest of the Muslims are protected from his hair from his tongue.
He is not backbiting he's not lying. He's not throwing allegation at people. He's not stealing. He's not doing something How is he? That's when also they define just to show you what I'm after here. Because if you want to leave at good after a good legacy after you, this is where you should begin.
Don't be going on the positive side, while the negative is piling and mounting. It doesn't work this way. Look, when they defined Bushnell Hulu What did they say? Having a good character what is possible Hulu as a host on Hulu? Two things to have a good character two things number one, careful.
Number one, careful that you refrain from harming
that you don't have.
That's number one, but inshallah, the time I have. I want to talk about the positive side of things. You know, the actually leaving a legacy in the sense of, of, of leaving something behind you brothers and sisters in Islam.
And you know when you talk about this, especially during these trying times
For the vote for devout devoted Muslims to this Deen always you hear words of disbelief. Yeah, I'm in Dar Salam goon. Yeah, I'm gonna fix the world. Yeah, I mean, what are you? What are you gonna do with it? Well, Allah was a model. Yeah, it's difficult. It's not easy. It is not easy. And we will always hear this. Meta bluehole Vanya neoman, Tama who either contacted me
when the building will reach its completion, when you're booting a brick, and people are taking down 1015 bricks from the
lattice, just do what you can do. Later, you can live from Laguna send Illa.
Allah subhanho wa Taala will never burden you more than what you can be. You certainly can do something. You certainly can do something but brothers and sisters in Islam, let's keep in mind that you're doing this for a law supine, are tired. Because I don't want you to be invited with the idea that I want to leave a legacy behind me that I want the people to say * so hard. So Hmm. So you want to leave something for the sake of a law sincerely. And I want to tell you something by Allah, if it is not for the sake of Allah, you will get your share Einstein that he or she is shaped all these people who serve the world, humanity they got the chair in the world. But if you want that
legacy to benefit you in the Hereafter, to give you benefit, that you still receive revenues from that legacy is an investment that you leave in this world and for you to receive the revenues effect. It must be done sincerely for the sake of Allah. And I want to tell you something, regardless of how big or small of a legacy that you leave behind you in this world, a look and turn it to be a humungous book based on the last the sincerity that you have.
Look at this fascinating story, which is uracil salatu salam shared with us. Fish Oil Bukhari Muslim Hadith Abu hurayrah Ravi Allah Juan.
Imagine this person and then from bunnies Roy. He wanted to be sincere in doing something in giving us a number. So he decided to give that Southern part at night when it's dark like they say
you know the Hadith about the seven who will be shaded under the throne
and the Day of Judgment. One of them is what someone who spent with his right, his left did not know
a lot of the scholars they say is not about giving in secret. is actually when you give and you don't know who received
you see when I give you a sadhaka me and you and I know who you are. You still getting a kickback from this.
Whenever I meet you, you know
there was a villa Casa de Leon. I given him a sub account day this guy
even you want him to kiss your neck still have one have a sheet you still getting a share of it. Well they give I will kill Mel the money that you earn from Haram.
That interest that you find in your bank account and you want to get rid of it or rebar money, get rid of it and give it to someone that you don't know.
You don't know because you're not supposed to get anything back from this. You expect nothing from it in the dunya or the hereafter you're getting rid of it. It's a filthy money that you're getting rid of.
For this man, this man wanted to give us other high end secret that he wanted to receive zero kickback.
Of course as well when we talk about you could give sadaqa openly provided that you're resolving that this is for the sake of Allah. And in to actually this is much better sometimes in some cases. This is a lot better because when you encourage others to give in to sadaqa and this is what is meant by into sada khazzani ama he actually when you give sadaqa openly is a lot better
Why? Because you will encourage others to give fear a little hiree
II. They tell you, your act will be enhanced by others will be adopted by others. This is more rewarding, but provided that you have sincerity but look at this man. Look at the amount of sincerity that he has. He went out and he placed the money in the hands of someone Of course, he did not know who.
In the morning the whole town started saying last night, the prostitute in town received the soccer
imagine he ended up giving the soccer prostitute.
A woman who deals with
her body as a commodity.
The Nan assumed that Allah subhanaw taala did not accept his sort of
he said your appeal I am wanting to give this in secret for the sake of Allah. I wanted a zero kickback from it. And at the end, I get what I ended up handing it over to a prostitute. He said I'm gonna try again tonight. He went back tonight. The whole town in the morning started saying the thief
the thief The one who steals the thief in town received a sadhaka last night
man not working
is not working.
You know what I'm gonna try again. Don't look at the amount of sincerity three times but I'll try this. The whole town in the morning started saying the righteous man in town received a sadhaka last night he ended up placing a sadhaka in the hands of the richest man he giving up the the the idea that his Sokka is accepted and you know what? I'm not gonna cry anymore. Because it doesn't look that Allah subhanaw taala is gonna accept my solemn
Allah subhanho wa Taala sent to him an angel and this happened with Benny Israel, many Israel they had wonders. Yeah, heard also. And so look at the sincerity here, how much how far his sadaqa will travel also and so
your circle in the three occasions were accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala this woman was doing this
x because of me.
There are some women out there who do this to earn a living.
So here, there are some. If some of you recall the Hadith, the three who were
travelling in the desert, and a storm erupted and the entered into a cave, a huge rock block their way and each one of them have to come with a righteous act for Allah subhanho wa Taala to relieve them.
Read the story of the second man
who had a cousin. He said I loved her dearly.
I loved her dearly.
And she went and married another man.
Her and her husband went through financial crisis. She came to me
and her cousin. I said to her I will do it provided that I commit the act with you.
A lot of us do read that word in this study that this woman said a stock through law.
She said no I'm not gonna do that. He actually should use her he should use the reset. I'll give you the money that you need provided that your mind in unlawful way.
She left him she went around give me give me give me give me give me give me nobody helped her.
Nobody. Sushi came back.
Here I have no choice
but still reminded. The point I'm trying to make is Yeah, there are some easy sometimes corruption in the society happens because that the institution of Zakah is not initiated or it is not managed properly and this is what happened. Imagine the thief likewise. Also the thief. Your sadaqa held him like it held the prostitute. Both of them will stop
stealing and committing adultery.
So the corruption is removed from
The community look at the third one. Why all of this happened?
Why all of this happened in the society in the first place? Because the rich was stingy.
The richest man in town was thinking he was not paying his car. He was not helping those people
when he refrained from giving that use on his wealth to the poor and the needy, this led them to fall into the sense now this rich after seeing you going and secret at night, to give a South Africa
expect expecting zero come back from it. Who's gonna try he's gonna try spending, he's gonna start spending. He's gonna start giving for the sake of Allah. Imagine, look at his sadhaka because of his sincerity, ended up fixing the society, the community, taking care of a whole community.
Plus, a plus equal law he will law if laws can make the act that you do.
Regardless of how big or small it is, travel long distance, long way, long way Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kills you sever
$1 Jani the currency of the time, sometimes in the sight of Allah is much better than 100,000 Why? Because he given it while needing it sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa tada brothers and sisters in Islam. What can you do

And then the person would be patients with pain and would be become patient and tremendous amount of reward for his own son walked in front of him.

which confirms this when the son of Adam dies, he no longer receives good deeds, except from where while righteous offspring boy or girl.
Here is the things which the brothers are celebrated in heritage no matter what I
saw earlier while Adam sorry hunter aka righteous offspring. And by the way, when we use the word wallet, it means boy or girl kulu. The wallet is not only boys their wallet means boys or girls, both offspring. That's why we translated we say offspring one Adam saw your hand taraka Oregon and the day of judgment and the Day of Judgment. The person will see a pile of personnel as you just the mountains.

Bring it for you
Bella Ali, right now, if you're not paying attention to the education of your child if you're not bringing them properly, you think they're going to make dua for you.
For the first place, what are them sorry hon taraka number two l Nana Allah who wanna Shara who's a nurse knowledge that he taught to the table and his spirit, the knowledge of the deen that our brothers and sisters in Islam, while law he the best investment that the person can make is to give to people, but make sure that you're verifying what you're teaching Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that we should not we should not teach without knowledge. Why? Because this will lead people to act

You get a share of this man send Neville Islami so Nathan hustler, whoever initiate an act, which is according to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam not an act that he invented, he will get the reward of it and those who did it after him. So make sure that before you teach something that it is authentic, it is the truth from Allah subhanho wa Taala Allahu Allahu Bina ness. Number three most have Anwar rasa. A Messiah Karanja that he would live in a messy, hot dilemma when people go to hombre they will go to in front of the harem and they would buy me 100 and maybe 50 massage. Today

Number seven, our solder cotton and *a Herman Murli, he had a hierarchy or a sadhaka a donation which you give from your own wealth while you're alive.

So Pinilla when you look at this concept of leaving a legacy behind you,
you know, actors and actresses, the people who devote their lives for singing, for
imagine Subhan Allah even after they die, even after they die.
They still show these movies to the people,
he or she is
in the grave.
And while she's belly dancing or wild, wherever people are watching it.
That's exactly the singers.
Or even bad story that I came across is out of this world. And some of you may relate to this.
And you may Allah forbid, I young man who had friends.
And he ended up signing up with that website that sends every day fresh
pornography every day. The first thing in the morning, an email is sent with the brand new videos.
And he ended up signing up five, six of his buddies on that list.
Imagine Yeah, he knows that people like this. So he signed them up that this is my three to this is my gift to you.
So Panama, he ended up having a car accident, and he died.
He died. This is a true story.
So he is buried. And guess what the website still sends the same videos every day to the living.
So here he is in the grave.
They call them they try to stop this. We cannot stop this. This is very private, personal. He has to do with them himself. Yes.
That's exactly what I'm talking about is that sometimes you may end up doing something that you think it's simple, you think it's fun, you think it's cool. But where it is?
You know, I I know I hate to share that story with you. But I think sometimes a word,
Some of you may not know this, but I'll share it for the sake of Allah. I close with it.
Originally, I used to be a tour guide in Egypt.
That's my original job.
And you know, tour guides tourism,
wearing a necklace and these flowering the gel on the hair, taking tourists around making money enjoying life.
So I ended up with this group coming from Germany
who requested the meeting with a chef in Egypt. Some of you may heard the name, he is very famous regarding the so called the Shah,
Mohammed metwally. Shall I say this is a great opportunity for me to meet the chef here.
And I get to translate to
so you know, I call to arrange set up the meeting with him.
But he said I don't accept interpreters, translators. I have my own yonny people who translate. So I became upset a little bit but I said okay, I can go and listen. For here I have my group sitting and I'm sitting in the middle of them
for his token in Arabi explaining to them and I'm really being very tentative.
he thinks I'm German because of the way that I look
at the time
the understand what I'm saying,
daffodil shake and FM and a Muslim in a Muslim, Euro Muslim, a Muslim and Philip psychedelia.
What are you doing to yourself? Well, Lahore, this was the the word, the tip you hit you like, it's a one word. He treated me well. But he said it.
He said it. So what I'm trying to say is that legacy could be a word that changes a life of somebody.
You never know. You never know. You know, later on. Here's the funny the funny thing. I came to American Michelle, I started growing my beard and all of that and I stopped
The piano learning the dean. So when I went back to Egypt,
like the FBI equal to in Egypt they catch you normally when they see you build it, they normally take you to a room to welcome you. For the officer is asking me, what's your name? Gary mabuchi
What did you graduate from faculty of tourism and hotel business?
He said the same thing with me. What are you doing to yourself? He said the same lying to me. The same sentence to me.
Brothers, do something. It's never leave. leave something behind you. One lie after we die.
For Ms. zetta.
What am young for nursery on go to fill out the form and all these bad experiences that you have will go away. But what will benefit people will stay behind you. I understand that it's very trying now very difficult. While not only the people who are involved in the Islamic world, they get attacked right and left. All type of allegations. See this and all of this will die out. But what will stay is what will benefit people Billa Ali, am I in your fuel? Do you know the name of the halifa of the Muslims during the time of Al Bukhari?
