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

Dear brothers and sisters, once upon a water Allah has mentioned to us in the Quran,

00:00:09--> 00:00:09

Allah

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

or Jesus in light

00:00:18--> 00:00:20

hearted to God ye he wanted to.

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

He didn't want to miss the moon.

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

He said,

00:00:34--> 00:00:36

oh you believe

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

fail law.

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

Be mindful of a law

00:00:43--> 00:00:46

with the field that is his exclusive right.

00:00:50--> 00:00:52

And do not allow them to overtake you.

00:00:54--> 00:00:57

While you're in some other condition other than

00:00:58--> 00:01:00

in submission to him.

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

Our talk this evening is about death.

00:01:14--> 00:01:18

Death has been mentioned by the prophets of the law as

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

the saga

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

the small dm

00:01:28--> 00:01:31

the first stage of dm

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

and I admit to you that

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

that is not something very easy to talk about.

00:01:49--> 00:01:53

It may be easy to say may be easy to spell.

00:01:55--> 00:01:58

It may be easy just to hear someone died.

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

Think about

00:02:02--> 00:02:05

or to talk about death, it is not a very easy thing to do.

00:02:09--> 00:02:12

And one of the things I would recommend it to you

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

sometime

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

near to this time,

00:02:26--> 00:02:28

go to a place

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

where there is no one just you

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

cut off all the lights,

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

pull all the clothes,

00:02:40--> 00:02:45

take the phone off the hook, close the blinds, lock the doors,

00:02:46--> 00:02:49

then you go inside of a closet and lock that closet.

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

Stay there for one hour.

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

And think

00:02:57--> 00:02:58

about it.

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

Because

00:03:02--> 00:03:10

you'll be standing in that cloud. But it'll be just like the same size as the grain that you can be laying in soon.

00:03:15--> 00:03:18

And some of the righteous people

00:03:19--> 00:03:31

because they want to understand death. In respect to life, they want to understand the scenario of death. They need to go to the graveyard and dig a grave

00:03:32--> 00:03:34

and sleep in that grave for one night.

00:03:37--> 00:03:38

Just to get a feeling

00:03:39--> 00:03:44

of being inside the grave while you're living before your death.

00:03:49--> 00:03:53

We need to think about death before

00:03:56--> 00:04:08

in between our laughing and talking, eating and drinking and visiting family members smiling and enjoying working in politics. We need to think about death.

00:04:09--> 00:04:20

The goal is thinking about death, although it is difficult to do will improve the quality of our lives, how much we may have left.

00:04:27--> 00:04:28

It is a difficult subject

00:04:30--> 00:04:34

to speak about and to think about. However from time to time,

00:04:36--> 00:04:45

we will have no choice but to be confronted with that very difficult topic. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned to us in the Quran another way he said

00:04:57--> 00:04:58

he said

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

You are busy,

00:05:05--> 00:05:06

you are engaged.

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

And you are diverted

00:05:11--> 00:05:18

from reality by the power of acquisitions and things

00:05:22--> 00:05:24

until you visit the Braves

00:05:27--> 00:05:29

some of the new facility they say

00:05:30--> 00:05:31

when the last

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

event

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

until you read

00:05:38--> 00:05:50

all the numbers or some other they said no. Each time you visit the grave on behalf of someone else at that time upon reality comes to you.

00:05:52--> 00:05:55

But no sooner than you believe that brave.

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

The next day,

00:05:58--> 00:06:01

all of a sudden the reality starts to go back.

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

And what we think is the real life starts to come to us.

00:06:12--> 00:06:14

There is really no stranger.

00:06:17--> 00:06:21

No Is it a subject that any of us can afford not to think about?

00:06:23--> 00:06:27

Yesterday, someone in this room

00:06:28--> 00:06:33

had someone in their family close to them that they know about.

00:06:35--> 00:06:42

Tomorrow, someone in this room, someone close to them near to them that they know will die

00:06:44--> 00:06:54

in this room right now, a year from now a month from now a week from now a day an hour. Won't be

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

like that.

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

You got so many things to do.

00:07:02--> 00:07:06

Because so many connections, so many appointments, so many plans.

00:07:09--> 00:07:12

People are dying everywhere. Right now. People are dying,

00:07:13--> 00:07:14

but not me.

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

Not you know

00:07:19--> 00:07:22

this is just an academic subject that we're talking about tonight.

00:07:25--> 00:07:27

We want to try to bring him home.

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

Let me for a moment introduce him to death.

00:07:38--> 00:07:51

So that you know his knee. You know his characteristics. You will feel him you will smell him. You will take them you touch him, you will anticipate him because there is a reality.

00:07:57--> 00:07:59

There is the inevitable trauma.

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

It has to come

00:08:19--> 00:08:20

Grim Reaper

00:08:52--> 00:08:58

brothers and sisters you're being asked to cut off from mobile phones that is only just a courtesy and respect.

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

Just a courtesy and a respect.

00:09:11--> 00:09:12

That is the Grim Reaper

00:09:16--> 00:09:18

of all places

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

is the doorway to the breeze.

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

This is the final reconciler

00:09:31--> 00:09:35

will bring everything it will reconciliation all matters.

00:09:37--> 00:09:41

That is the modifier. Those who those who

00:09:42--> 00:09:47

those who are powerful that will modify them.

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

That is a rectifier

00:09:52--> 00:09:53

that needs to be balanced and

00:09:54--> 00:09:57

that will bring them forward.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

distinctions.

00:10:02--> 00:10:05

After death, there are no change. No fences.

00:10:08--> 00:10:15

No people, no people, no people, no black or white, no yellow, no male, no female.

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

They're just one flesh.

00:10:24--> 00:10:26

That is the separator for friends,

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

friends and

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

loved ones.

00:10:38--> 00:10:42

No matter how much you love them, you want to get them out of the house.

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

That is the liquidator

00:10:49--> 00:10:50

of life.

00:10:51--> 00:11:05

That is reality of all the doubters. All the atheists, all the communists, all the socialism, all the agnostics, all those who deny all those who are angry, rebellious, who say

00:11:08--> 00:11:11

death is the one

00:11:12--> 00:11:13

that was some of the issues

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

is the humbling of the arrogant.

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

That

00:11:21--> 00:11:24

is the doorway to darkness,

00:11:26--> 00:11:28

darkness and depression

00:11:30--> 00:11:31

and disease

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

and disaster.

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

No matter how happy

00:11:42--> 00:11:45

how, how enjoyable.

00:11:47--> 00:11:56

How, how powerful, how prosperous people when death comes through the doorway and brings grief to all those connected.

00:11:59--> 00:12:03

That is the transfer of all possessions.

00:12:08--> 00:12:14

The man with a beautiful wife, his wife will be the wife of someone else.

00:12:17--> 00:12:22

She will first be a widow, and then she will be the wife of someone else.

00:12:25--> 00:12:31

The most powerful the billionaires trading is their mouths will be filled with dust.

00:12:33--> 00:12:42

And billions and trillions will be scattered and shared by all their friends and family who will enjoy their money and grieve over their death.

00:12:45--> 00:12:51

All the houses all the properties that people count on all their lives Stiefel plan for

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

what for diet.

00:12:58--> 00:12:58

Soda

00:13:01--> 00:13:03

is the bringer of tears.

00:13:06--> 00:13:10

There is a snatcher of loved ones.

00:13:13--> 00:13:16

There is the unexpected visitor

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

when death knocks on the door.

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

No one can refuse to answer.

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

And it's always at the wrong time.

00:13:31--> 00:13:40

Death is the death of the family members, family members who haven't seen each other for 2030 years,

00:13:41--> 00:13:42

brings them together

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

is the event that no one can escape.

00:13:57--> 00:14:09

No matter where people are to escape death. Death will seek them out. When they run to that place they run to is the place they're supposed to die.

00:14:14--> 00:14:17

debt is the destroyer of all dreams.

00:14:20--> 00:14:23

There is the undeniable evidence.

00:14:24--> 00:14:25

If I

00:14:26--> 00:14:31

had no other power over these creatures, death would be enough.

00:14:33--> 00:14:35

And that's why he swears by the time

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

he says

00:14:39--> 00:14:43

he swears by the time because in time in silent of

00:14:45--> 00:14:55

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

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

except those who have and preserve our

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

contract of faith.

00:15:02--> 00:15:11

And they did actions which were good and sound. And they used to join together to promote the truth and patience and constancy

00:15:13--> 00:15:18

that is the end of this life and the beginning of another

00:15:21--> 00:15:29

for those that will be happy and prosperous, and those that will be miserable and tragic.

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

This is an introduction to death.

00:15:39--> 00:15:45

And now I would like you to listen for some verses from the Quran, the Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:46--> 00:15:53

and see what Allah subhanaw taala reminds us about death by the mods please you.

00:16:50--> 00:16:51

Allah subhana wa Taala

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

in the first quarter of this year,

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

and no person can ever die,

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

except by our laws, leaves

00:17:05--> 00:17:09

and they will certainly die at an appointed fixed time.

00:18:00--> 00:18:02

Hello, says

00:18:04--> 00:18:08

everyone shall experience or taste death

00:18:10--> 00:18:15

and only on the Day of Resurrection, shall you pay your wages in full

00:18:16--> 00:18:25

and whosoever is removed away from the fire and admitted to paradise, he indeed is successful.

00:18:26--> 00:18:34

The life of this world is only the German of deception a deceiving thing.

00:18:56--> 00:18:58

Last funnel Masada says

00:18:59--> 00:19:01

whatsoever you may be,

00:19:03--> 00:19:11

death will overtake you. Even if you are in fortresses, those are strong and high

00:19:54--> 00:19:56

last goddesses

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

as a challenge

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

Then why do you need to be, when the soul of the dying person reaches the throat

00:20:08--> 00:20:10

and at that moment you are looking on.

00:20:12--> 00:20:19

But we are angels who take the soul are nearer to him than you, but you see them not.

00:21:16--> 00:21:19

Nay, when the soul reaches the collarbone

00:21:20--> 00:21:22

up to the throat in his exit,

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

and

00:21:27--> 00:21:30

explains this, it gives us even the sound

00:21:42--> 00:21:47

it will be said, Who can kill him and save him from death.

00:21:48--> 00:21:53

And he the dying person will conclude that it was the time of potty

00:21:55--> 00:21:57

and one leg will be joined.

00:21:58--> 00:22:02

When that person is wrapped into a shroud and thrown into the ground,

00:22:09--> 00:22:13

gives us the signs for us to think about

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

the brothers and sisters,

00:22:19--> 00:22:25

there is no stranger to us, nor is it a subject that any of us can afford not to think about.

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

Death is the opposite of life.

00:22:31--> 00:22:35

And just like life, death is all around us,

00:22:36--> 00:22:41

manifesting itself and making itself known constantly.

00:22:43--> 00:22:52

When we go to the hospital to see a brand new baby, we don't realize it, but downstairs in the hospital

00:22:57--> 00:23:01

Some are entering and others are leaving,

00:23:06--> 00:23:06

start

00:23:11--> 00:23:15

with the gift of a child their arms and others

00:23:17--> 00:23:18

are staying away.

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

No one wants to go to

00:23:25--> 00:23:30

that place. It is it is it is smelly.

00:23:32--> 00:23:43

And it is the place where the people will sit for some time until they are washed and wrecked and taken to their final resting place.

00:23:47--> 00:23:49

That is so definitely an obvious

00:23:51--> 00:23:57

that our love for living is always settled by a fear for dying.

00:23:58--> 00:23:58

No matter how.

00:24:01--> 00:24:10

how busy we get, how much we love. It is always shadowed by the thought and the apprehension of death.

00:24:13--> 00:24:19

very profound thing about death is that death is non sectarian.

00:24:23--> 00:24:30

No one can claim that because I'm a Christian, I'm a Jew, I'm a Buddhist, I'm the Hindu I'm this I'm that I'm a holy.

00:24:31--> 00:24:34

I'm a Muslim, I'm a selfie. I'm a sharpie. This

00:24:37--> 00:24:38

is nonsense.

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

Everybody's gonna die.

00:24:42--> 00:24:44

Everybody's gonna get a visit from death.

00:24:45--> 00:24:48

And there's a piece of ground or piece of earth

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

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 not

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

prejudicial that doesn't have a problem take anybody's life.

00:25:06--> 00:25:10

That is completely oblivious of age. That is

00:25:12--> 00:25:13

adolescence,

00:25:14--> 00:25:18

teenagers, young men and women, middle aged,

00:25:22--> 00:25:29

doesn't care about gender doesn't care about status that doesn't care about race.

00:25:32--> 00:25:33

Pretty people,

00:25:34--> 00:25:43

prosperous people, powerful people, and people would win plans. Death takes all of them also.

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

Anyone can die at any time.

00:25:51--> 00:25:54

And everyone will die at some time.

00:25:57--> 00:25:58

Doesn't make appointments,

00:26:01--> 00:26:03

no contingency plans.

00:26:04--> 00:26:12

Death claims individual death claims families, death claims, and the entire nation.

00:26:14--> 00:26:15

Just like that,

00:26:18--> 00:26:23

in the blink of an eye, that claims its victims,

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

while they are still in the womb.

00:26:28--> 00:26:32

And death snatches light from others, that a fully mature

00:26:34--> 00:26:37

and sensible resting place in the tomb.

00:26:39--> 00:26:47

Today is the first day of the rest of our lives. And death is just around the corner.

00:26:49--> 00:26:52

Waiting for us in the shadows, one by one.

00:26:55--> 00:26:57

The love of his life.

00:26:58--> 00:26:59

And it's good

00:27:00--> 00:27:03

that we have plenty of time to plan.

00:27:05--> 00:27:07

Play, enjoy.

00:27:09--> 00:27:13

Not Have you thought tonight that she would come and go.

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

But you don't really know.

00:27:17--> 00:27:26

There are people in this room right now that just last week, they went somewhere to see about someone who had died.

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

And one of the people who had went to see about somebody who had died died.

00:27:36--> 00:27:38

Were in a lady.

00:27:40--> 00:27:51

And it was the color of a loss of water, Hannah. And some of us will be on our way from someplace that we thought

00:27:54--> 00:27:55

would just be another place.

00:27:56--> 00:28:12

And we say to the people, I'm sorry, I have to leave right now I've got a I gotta go. I gotta be some way. I gotta, I gotta see my husband, I gotta pick up my child, I got to see my wife, I have to visit I have to die. And it never happened.

00:28:14--> 00:28:15

In between

00:28:22--> 00:28:34

our preoccupation with children, wives, husbands, homes, automobiles, business, personal ambitions, and competing for material acquisitions

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

will allow death

00:28:40--> 00:28:41

to arrive

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

softly

00:28:45--> 00:28:46

like a thief in the night.

00:28:50--> 00:28:54

And in the morning, snack and snack

00:28:55--> 00:29:10

homes, or we get a phone call our mother or father or 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.

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

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 and evaluation of our lives while we are able to do so.

00:29:31--> 00:29:43

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

00:29:45--> 00:29:49

is the human being that is aware of its creator

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

is faithful is humble and striving to discipline themselves and willing to purify themselves. So Allah subhanaw taala says

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

In the Quran,

00:30:03--> 00:30:04

what God

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

does

00:30:10--> 00:30:18

to each of us, that we will wish that we had listened as the Quran says

00:30:20--> 00:30:20

a small

00:30:23--> 00:30:25

factor of the

00:30:30--> 00:30:32

day will come to each of us

00:30:33--> 00:30:38

that we wish that we had listened and use our intelligence

00:30:39--> 00:30:44

we will wish that we had bowed down we will wish that we had made

00:30:46--> 00:30:49

those of us that are Muslims by name

00:30:52--> 00:30:54

by culture Muslims by

00:30:57--> 00:30:59

those of us that are Muslims that we have not prayed

00:31:02--> 00:31:03

would you say to ourselves as a

00:31:04--> 00:31:06

human being as I'm

00:31:08--> 00:31:15

looking at the Quran sitting on that shelf, watching our mother pray watching our father pray afraid, seeing somebody else pray and

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

pray for me.

00:31:22--> 00:31:26

On that day, you will wish that you had made Google you will wish the

00:31:28--> 00:31:29

one time

00:31:33--> 00:31:35

we wish that we had read

00:31:38--> 00:31:39

we will listen we had made

00:31:42--> 00:31:44

the door was open.

00:31:46--> 00:31:48

All we have to do is watch

00:31:49--> 00:31:54

pray and make our minister must correct ourselves but we never did.

00:31:55--> 00:32:00

We kept saying in Java as if it was a deck of cards

00:32:02--> 00:32:11

as inshallah some kind of special currency as inshallah some kind of guarantee to go live tomorrow, we kept saying inshallah

00:32:20--> 00:32:22

we will wish that we had made

00:32:25--> 00:32:30

that money you spent on your car, the money you spent on the furniture,

00:32:32--> 00:32:34

the money you spent on this hotel,

00:32:35--> 00:32:37

you could have made hydrometer but you didn't.

00:32:38--> 00:32:42

You said inshallah, when I get 60.

00:32:44--> 00:32:45

When I get all

00:32:47--> 00:32:51

these things, all these wrong things, when I get 60, I'm going to make a mess about

00:32:54--> 00:32:55

this is what some people is thinking.

00:32:57--> 00:33:01

They sell their life. They live in a house of the life.

00:33:03--> 00:33:06

They each have their life, they do

00:33:08--> 00:33:10

have a life. And then they think

00:33:12--> 00:33:14

that they will take $2,000

00:33:15--> 00:33:19

and they will go make health and all everything will be squared up.

00:33:22--> 00:33:23

Because they are foolish.

00:33:26--> 00:33:27

We wish

00:33:30--> 00:33:54

we wish that we had written this out our differences. How many Muslims do you have a difference with a problem with an issue with an argument with a vendetta with a bee that you haven't reconciled? As matter of fact many of us we don't even want to reconcile differences. We put water on the differences we cultivate the difference.

00:33:55--> 00:33:56

We want to find a reason why

00:33:57--> 00:33:58

somebody even

00:34:00--> 00:34:07

even if they came in apologize, we didn't want to accept it because we called ourselves reconciled with that person.

00:34:11--> 00:34:15

But we will wish that we had reconciled our differences.

00:34:16--> 00:34:18

We will wish that we had paid

00:34:21--> 00:34:31

you will wish that you took the time to compute and that you found somebody to pay you would wish that you had given away something

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

we will wish that we had our bad habits.

00:34:39--> 00:34:42

We will wish that we had not procrastinate and delayed.

00:34:44--> 00:34:45

We will wish that day

00:34:47--> 00:34:48

and never came

00:34:49--> 00:34:53

but that they will come but it will be too late.

00:34:55--> 00:34:57

That will come like a last breath

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

that

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

Come like a massive stroke

00:35:03--> 00:35:12

that will come as a total paralysis. Definitely Come on sleeping, or definitely come in the middle of your business activities.

00:35:15--> 00:35:16

Dear brothers and sisters,

00:35:19--> 00:35:19

if not then

00:35:22--> 00:35:26

he mentioned that the prophets of the law used to pray

00:35:27--> 00:35:28

out to the is that

00:35:35--> 00:35:36

what else was

00:35:40--> 00:35:42

used to say some of our money was stolen.

00:35:43--> 00:35:45

I seek refuge

00:35:46--> 00:35:47

in your power or was

00:35:49--> 00:35:52

the one whom there is no god except you.

00:35:54--> 00:35:58

The one who never dies, while the humans and the jinn

00:35:59--> 00:36:01

are those who die.

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

The Messenger of Allah

00:36:09--> 00:36:18

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

00:36:23--> 00:36:25

and optimize food.

00:36:30--> 00:36:44

He sent it home Habiba one of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh Allah, let me enjoy my husband, the message of a law, my father

00:36:45--> 00:36:46

and my brother,

00:36:48--> 00:36:51

that is the one Do not let them die before me.

00:36:53--> 00:36:53

She made this

00:36:55--> 00:36:56

the profit from above.

00:36:58--> 00:36:59

And he said,

00:37:02--> 00:37:03

You have asked the last

00:37:04--> 00:37:30

time, which is already appointed and days was already numbered, and provisions, which is over the shed out a lot does not hasten to do anything before it's appointed time. And he does not delete anything until after it's 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

00:37:38--> 00:37:40

the brothers and sisters in Islam

00:37:46--> 00:37:53

reminds me that a loss of animal data he says to us and through the look of the blenders ecology. So that

00:37:55--> 00:37:57

they get to look for who and appreciate

00:37:59--> 00:38:00

and love the Hello

00:38:01--> 00:38:03

World one had the

00:38:09--> 00:38:10

handle data

00:38:11--> 00:38:12

loss

00:38:13--> 00:38:16

in whose hands It is all the Dominion all the power.

00:38:21--> 00:38:29

It is he who created the death and also created the life in order to see which one of us would be the best in our behavior.

00:38:31--> 00:38:35

So that this medicine be able to benefit to meet and to you.

00:38:36--> 00:38:36

We asked him

00:38:38--> 00:38:40

this reminder, the one

00:38:41--> 00:38:43

that causes you an eye to reflect

00:38:45--> 00:38:53

upon without the benefit us with remembrance of him in this life. And that he calls us to think

00:38:54--> 00:38:57

often about this before it comes to this

00:38:59--> 00:38:59

stuff.
