Dear brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala as mentioned to us in the Quran
hopped on to coffee, water to
be mindful of Allah.
That is his exclusive right.
And do not allow them to overtake you.
While you're in some other condition other than
in submission to him.
Our talk this evening is about death.
Death has been mentioned by the prophets of the law as
the AMA solo,
the small dm
the first page of dm
and I admit to you that
this is not something very easy to talk about.
It may be easy to say, maybe easy to spell.
It may be easy just to hear someone die.
But to really think about
or to talk about death, it is not a very easy thing to do.
And one of the things I would recommend to you
near to this time,
go to a place
where there is no one just you
cut off all the lights,
pull all the clothes,
close the blinds, lock the doors.
Then you go inside a closet and lock that closet.
Stay there for one hour.
about that in darkness. Because that closet
you'll be standing in that closet. But it'll be just like the same size as the grain that you can be laying in soon.
And some of the righteous people
because they wanted to understand death. In respect to life, they want to understand the scenario of death. They used to go to the graveyards and dig a grave and sleep in that grave for one night.
Just to get a feeling
of being inside the grave while you're living before your death.
We need to think about death.
In between our laughing and talking, eating and drinking and visiting family members smiling and enjoying working in power. We need to think about death.
Because thinking about death, although it is difficult to do will improve the quality of our lives. How much we may have that
is a difficult subject
To speak about and to think about, however, from time to time,
we will have no choice but to be confronted with that difficult topic. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned to us in the Quran another way he said
you are busy,
you are engaged
and you are diverted
from reality by the power of acquisitions and things
until you visited Greece
some of the new facility they said when the last
until you meet
some others they said no. Each time you visit the grave on behalf of someone else at that time upon reality comes to you.
But no sooner than you leave that grave.
The next day
all of a sudden the reality starts to go back.
And what we think is the real life starts to come to us.
That is really no stranger.
No Is it a subject that any of us can afford not to think about?
Yesterday, someone in this room,
had someone in their family close to them.
Tomorrow Sunday, someone in this room, someone close to them
that they know
some of us that is in this room right now. a year from now a month from now a week from now a day and I won't be here.
You got so many things to do.
But not me.
This is just an academic subject that we're talking about tonight.
We want to try to bring it home.
Let me introduce you to death.
So that you know his knee. You know
you will feel him you will smell him. You will take them you will touch him. You will anticipate him
because there is a reality.
There is the inevitable trauma.
It has to come.
Death is the Grim Reaper.
Is there a problem?
Brothers and Sisters you're being asked to cut off from mobile phones that is only just a courtesy and a respect.
Just a courtesy and a respect.
There is the
there is the anger of all places.
This is the doorway to the breeze.
This is the funnel
it will bring everything it will reconciliation all matters
that is the modifier those who those who apply those those who are powerful that will modify them
there is the rectifier
that will bring them forward.
There is the removal of distinctions
after that change.
no, no, no, no, no male no female,
separated from friends,
No matter how much you love them, you want to get them out of the house.
That is the liquidated
damages reality of all the downloads of the atheist, communist, all the socialists, all the agnostics, all those who deny all those who are angry, proud, rebellious, who say we don't
is the one
that was some of the issues
is the humbling of the arrogant.
is the doorway to darkness,
darkness and depression
and traveling and disaster.
No matter how happy
how, how enjoyable.
how rich, how powerful how people come through the doorway brings
to all those connected.
That is the transfer of all possessions.
The man with the beautiful wife, his wife will be the wife of someone else.
She will first be a widow and then she will be the wife of someone else.
The most powerful
trillionaires their mouths will be filled with dust.
And lumens and trillions will be scattered and shared by all their friends and family who will enjoy their money and grieve over their death.
All the houses all the properties that people piled on all their lives. Stevie
the bringer of tears.
There is a snatcher of loved ones.
There is the unexpected visitor
knocks on the door.
No one can refuse to answer.
And it's always at the wrong time.
Death is the death of a family members, family members who haven't seen each other for 2030 years.
Bring them together.
This is the event that no one can escape.
No matter where people are to escape that death will seek them out. When they run to that place they run to is the place they're supposed to die.
That is the destroyer of all dreams.
That is the undeniable evidence
have no other power over this
will be enough.
That's why he swears by the time
he swears by the time because in time
all the human beings, they will be losers, they will lose their life, and their property, and their position and their prestige, they will lose everything that they have acquired,
except those who had and preserve a contract of faith,
and they did actions which were good and sound, and they used to join together to promote the truth and patience and consistency.
That is the end of this life and the beginning of another.
For those that will be happy, and prosperous, and those that will be miserable and tragic.
This is the introduction to death.
And now I would like you to listen for some verses from the Quran, the Book of Allah subhanaw taala.
And see what Allah subhanaw taala reminds us about death
and no person can ever die,
except by our laws leave
and they will certainly die at an appointed fixed time.
experience or taste, death
and only on the Day of Resurrection, shall you pay your wages in full
and moved away from the fire and admitted to paradise. He indeed a successful
the life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception and deceiving thing
strong and high.
Loss of data says
as a challenge,
the right to be,
when the soul of the dying person reaches the throat
and at that moment you are looking on.
But we are angels who take the soul near to him to you, but to see them not
up to the throat is excellent
explains this it gives us even the sound
and then we say who can kill him and save him from death
and he the dying person will conclude that it was the time of potty
when that person is wrapped into a shroud and thrown into the ground.
gives us the signs for us to think about
the brothers and sisters
there is no stranger to us nor is it a subject that any of us can afford not to think about.
Death is the opposite of life.
And just like life, death is all around us
manifesting itself and make itself known constantly.
When we go to the hospital to see our brand new baby, we don't realize
Some are entering and others are leaving
walking out with the gift of a child their arms and others
are staying away.
No one wants to go to the mall.
to that place. It is it is
and it is the place where the people will sit for some time until they are washed and wrapped and taken to their final resting place.
So definitely an obvious
that our love
is always shadowed by a seal for die.
No matter how happy we
is always shadowed by the thought and the apprehension of death.
The very profound thing about death is that is non sectarian.
No one can claim that because I'm a Christian. I'm a Jew. I'm a Buddhist on the Hindu I'm a dentist
Everybody's gonna die,
everybody's gonna get a visit from death.
And there's a piece of ground or piece of Earth,
or the ocean or wherever else, your body may wind up there. That's a place for all of us to reside, that is nondenominational that is non prejudicial. Definitely not a problem in anybody's life.
completely oblivious of age that
teenagers, young men and women, middle age,
doesn't care about gender, doesn't care about status, dead, doesn't care about race.
prosperous people, powerful people, and people would really plans. Death takes all of them also,
if you want to die anytime,
and everyone will die at some time.
death claims individual death claims,
just like that,
in the blink of an eye, death, claims its victims
while they are still in the womb,
and snatches light from others that are fully mature,
and sends them to the resting place in the tomb.
Today is the first day of the rest of our lives. And death is just around the corner.
Waiting for us in the shadows, one by one.
The love of his life.
And it's good
that we have plenty of time to play,
Most of you thought tonight that you would come and go.
But you don't really know.
There are people in this room right now that just last week, they went somewhere to see about someone who had died.
And one of the people who had went to see about somebody who had died died.
it was the color of a loss of paddling water, Hannah. And some of us will be on our way from someplace that we thought
would just be another place.
And we say to the people, I'm sorry, I have to leave right now. I've got an employment, I gotta go. I gotta be somewhere. I gotta be somewhere, I got to see my husband, I got to pick up my child, I got to see my wife.
And it never happened.
our preoccupation with children, wives, husbands, homes, automobiles, business, personal ambitions, and material acquisitions
will allow them
like a thief in the night.
Some of us
snuck in and somebody that was inside of our homes, or we get a phone call. Our mother or father, a grandmother or grandfather, our child, our friend, our neighbor, who we saw just yesterday I spoke to was laughing and talking death came that night and smashed him.
Some of us sitting here may not be here next year, next month next week or for that matter the next day. Each of us needs to take an inventory evaluation of our lives while we are able to do
fortunate is the person that takes a moment and a deep breath, to appreciate and rearrange their lives before that tragic and lonely moment arise.
For the human being, that is a way of his creator,
is grateful is humble and striving to discipline themselves and willing to purify themselves. So Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran,
a day will come to each of us,
then we will wish that we had Listen, as the Quran says
that we wish that we had listened and use our intelligence.
We will wish that we had bowed down we will wish that we had made
those of us that are Muslims that we have not prayed
we keep saying to ourselves passing by the balls
looking at the Quran and sitting on that shelf what's karma pray watching our father great seeing somebody else pray and
pray for me.
On that day
you will listen to me
all we have to do is watch
and correct ourselves but we never did it.
We kept saying in Java as if in Shabazz a deck of cards
as inshallah some kind of special currency as inshallah some kind of guarantee to go live tomorrow we just say in Java.
We wish that we had
that money spent on your car, the money spent on the furniture,
you could have made Hajj or Umrah but you didn't.
You said inshallah, when I get 60
when I get older woman
is always wrong things
I'm going to give you
this is what some people is thinking.
They sell their life. They live in a house of their life.
their life, they do by themselves a lot of their life. And then they think
that they will take $2,000
and they will go back
and all everything will be squared up.
Because they are foolish
wisdom, our differences? How many Muslims do you have a difference with a problem with an issue with an argument with
a B, that you haven't reconciled? is not a factor any of us. We don't even want to reconcile differences. We put water on the differences we calculate the difference.
We want to find a reason why not to reconcile with somebody, even
if they came in apologize. We still don't want to accept it because we have hardened ourselves against reconciling with that person.
But we will wish that we had reconciled our differences.
We will wish that we had paid
you will wish that you took the time to compute and that you found somebody to pay you
Giving away something in
our bad habits.
We wish that we had not procrastinated and delayed.
We will wish that day
had never came.
But that they will come. But it will be too late.
We'll come back a last breath
that will come like a massive stroke
that will come as a paralysis.
They come on sleepy, or definitely come in the middle of your business activities.
The brothers and sisters
he mentioned that the profits on the wall money is used to pray
out to be the teacher. I love that. And I don't know
to say some of our money was stolen.
I seek refuge

the one whom there is no god except
the one who never dies, while the humans and the J
are those who die.
The Messenger of Allah
when Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to take the soul of a person in a certain land, he causes him to have a need to go there.
he said the long Habiba
let me enjoy my husband, the message of the law,
and my brother,
do not let them die before me.
She made this
the prophet SAW.
And he said
you have asked the last
time which is already appointed and days which are already numbered, and provisions, which has already shared out a lot does not hasten to do anything before its appointed time. And he does not delete anything until after its appointed time. If you had asked the law to protect you from the torment of hell, and the functioning of the brain that would have been better for
the brothers and sisters in this line.
reminds us that a loss of Hello Donna he says to us and through the look of the blender Chicago de salud de

the IE home
in whose hands that is all the Dominion all the power.
It is he who created the deck and also created the life in order to see which one of us would be the best in our behavior.
So was this medicine, we have a benefit to meet engineering.
We asked that this reminder, the one
that causes you and I to reflect. We ask Allah subhanaw taala that he benefit us with remembrance of him in this life and that He calls us to think
often about death before it comes to us.
Somebody that was inside of our homes, or we get a phone call. How Mother Father grandmother
Grandfather, our child, our friend, our neighbor, who we saw just yesterday I spoke to was laughing and talking. death came that night and snatched him. Malcolm X was a racist, a nationalist, a man who said things about Allah subhanho wa Taala, which he had no right to say.
Yes, he was a reformed criminal.
But even after he was reformed in his conduct, he was still saying things about Allah subhanaw taala, which he had no right to say because Malcolm X was Jay Hill.
But the man
who I need to speak about, his name is Al Hajj, Malik Chavez. But we can't speak about him unless we come through Malcolm X.
So let us be clear.
lived a life
which is impressive for non Muslims. But for us Muslims, we have no concern about his life, except three months before Allah subhanho wa Taala took his life civilization is in need, as it has had in the past reformation and a new morality. What did I say there's a need of
reformation and a new morality. Here comes the core and
this is the very presence. This is the very premise of the need of the Quran and modern civilization, because that was the need of the Quran 1500 years ago, and that is how the poor end brought forward. A civilization that we are experiencing today that you might say to yourself, Well, how did the Quran bring forward a civilization that we're experiencing? Today? We're going to discuss that I'm going to qualify my statements. But keep this in mind. I'm saying to you that the basic thesis and answer whether the Quran can be applied in modern civilization, the basis of it is that the Quran is a book of Revelation. It is a book of inspiration. And it is a book of legislation
that if it is followed, it will reform the human being, it will reform the family, it will reform the society, it will reform the government and it will reform the world, the woman that sleeps through the ledger, or doesn't perform her prayers. Generally speaking her family, they also will do the same.
The woman who watches a lot of TV, her family will do the same.
The woman that is selfish, she will raise a selfish family. The woman is the first university
what she teaches the family. In most cases, the family will never unlearn it, they will carry it the rest of their lives. Young people are dancing and drinking, and drugging and fighting, and stealing and creating problems so that the police have to come to the mosque or to their parents say you must control these children or otherwise we have to throw them in the jail.
You have a problem where the young people do not respect their parents. Young people don't want to stay home. Young people want to do what they feel like doing. And we cannot do anything about it.
Because the young people have an identity crisis.
They don't know who they are.
They don't know if they are Australians.
Or if they are Muslims.
They have been to Australian schools, learn the Australian values and culture. But you have named them I've met Fatima Mohammed.
so and so. You told them Don't do this.
They don't know why not. You told them read code and they never see you read it.
You tell them go to the mosque. When it comes to the mosque. They see nothing but a group of old men sitting down there's not enough Iraqi Muslim, Nigerian Muslim. No, now I have to be I have to be Sufi, or I have to be Salafi. Or I have to be Sunni, or I have to be Shea or I have to be Wahhabi, or I got to be Alawite or I got to be this or that. It's not enough that we are Muslims upon the Tao of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Muslims upon the monotheism of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was that we are Muslims upon the Quran and the Sunnah. Now we have to distinguish ourselves from the other Muslims, and we have to call ourselves certain names. Let's work like that. All the different groups that's
represented here, let's get our m&ms together. Let's get the Amir's that we set up our chairman's, I will lead us let's get them together and ask them what's the deal?
What's happening? What's the problem?
Why you guys can't get together? Why you guys can't get together and choose whoever knows the most court and whoever knows the most of the Sunnah. Whichever view is the oldest among you. I can't you guys get together and do that. What's the problem?
If we don't ask them to do that they won't do it for another 50 years. And tomorrow, we talk first, and then we pray last on the eighth. We do just to reverse.
We pray first. And after that we're supposed to talk the more Muslims after, after, after the prayers over the aftermath. And all that finish, he get up the top Muslim broke breaking out, they started the barbecue, the kids running all around the brothers talking, everybody got on new clothes, the sisters walking around, and the mommy talking about him.
Because the Muslims will have no respect.
If the hygiene of the Muslims had respect,
he would tell everybody, Everyone sit down
and they would be sitting just like this he could deliver to those 4000 those 5000 people as he's supposed to, but he cannot you know that the Arabs they don't like the Pakistanis, and the Pakistanis, they don't like to Adams
you know, in the end, the African don't like nobody.
No, I don't mean that. I don't mean that brothers.
I could have switched it around, you know, I switch it around sometimes.
So when you die, the moment that you die, and all of you will die, another part of the trip is over. And that part of the ticket is torn off and is gone. You will not return back to this life. Nobody has La ilaha
as you have seen me
