Dear brothers and sisters, once upon a water Allah has mentioned to us in the Quran,
or Jesus in light
hearted to God ye he wanted to.
He didn't want to miss the moon.
oh you believe
Be mindful of a law
with the field 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 small dm
the first stage of dm
and I admit to you that
that is not something very easy to talk about.
It may be easy to say may be easy to spell.
It may be easy just to hear someone died.
or to talk about death, it is not a very easy thing to do.
And one of the things I would recommend it 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,
take the phone off the hook, close the blinds, lock the doors,
then you go inside of a closet and lock that closet.
Stay there for one hour.
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.
And some of the righteous people
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
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 before
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.
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.
It 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 very 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 visit the Braves
some of the new facility they say
when the last
until you read
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.
But no sooner than you believe that brave.
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.
There 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 that they know about.
Tomorrow, someone in this room, someone close to them near to them that they know will die
in this room right now, a year from now a month from now a week from now a day an hour. Won't be
You got so many things to do.
Because so many connections, so many appointments, so many plans.
People are dying everywhere. Right now. People are dying,
but not me.
Not you know
this is just an academic subject that we're talking about tonight.
We want to try to bring him home.
Let me for a moment introduce him to death.
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.
There is the inevitable trauma.
It has to come
brothers and sisters you're being asked to cut off from mobile phones that is only just a courtesy and respect.
Just a courtesy and a respect.
That is the Grim Reaper
of all places
is the doorway to the breeze.
This is the final reconciler
will bring everything it will reconciliation all matters.
That is the modifier. Those who those who
those who are powerful that will modify them.
That is a rectifier
that needs to be balanced and
that will bring them forward.
After death, there are no change. No fences.
No people, no people, no people, no black or white, no yellow, no male, no female.
They're just one flesh.
That is the separator for friends,
No matter how much you love them, you want to get them out of the house.
That is the liquidator
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
death is the one
that was some of the issues
is the humbling of the arrogant.
is the doorway to darkness,
darkness and depression
No matter how happy
how, how enjoyable.
How, how powerful, how prosperous people when death comes through the doorway and brings grief to all those connected.
That is the transfer of all possessions.
The man with a 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 the billionaires trading is their mouths will be filled with dust.
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.
All the houses all the properties that people count on all their lives Stiefel plan for
what for diet.
is the bringer of tears.
There is a snatcher of loved ones.
There is the unexpected visitor
when death knocks on the door.
No one can refuse to answer.
And it's always at the wrong time.
Death is the death of the family members, family members who haven't seen each other for 2030 years,
brings them together
is the event that no one can escape.
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.
debt is the destroyer of all dreams.
There is the undeniable evidence.
had no other power over these creatures, death would be enough.
And that's why he swears by the time
he swears by the time because in time in silent of
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 have and preserve our
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 constancy
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 an introduction to death.
And now I would like you to listen for some verses from the Quran, the Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala
and see what Allah subhanaw taala reminds us about death by the mods please you.
Allah subhana wa Taala
in the first quarter of this year,
and no person can ever die,
except by our laws, leaves
and they will certainly die at an appointed fixed time.
everyone shall experience or taste death
and only on the Day of Resurrection, shall you pay your wages in full
and whosoever is removed away from the fire and admitted to paradise, he indeed is successful.
The life of this world is only the German of deception a deceiving thing.
Last funnel Masada says
whatsoever you may be,
death will overtake you. Even if you are in fortresses, those are strong and high
as a challenge
Then why do you need 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 are nearer to him than you, but you see them not.
Nay, when the soul reaches the collarbone
up to the throat in his exit,
explains this, it gives us even the sound
it will be said, Who can kill him and save him from death.
And he the dying person will conclude that it was the time of potty
and one leg will be joined.
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 making itself known constantly.
When we go to the hospital to see a brand new baby, we don't realize it, but downstairs in the hospital
Some are entering and others are leaving,
with the gift of a child their arms and others
are staying away.
No one wants to go to
that place. It is it is it is smelly.
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.
That is so definitely an obvious
that our love for living is always settled by a fear for dying.
No matter how.
how busy we get, how much we love. It is always shadowed by the thought and the apprehension of death.
very profound thing about death is that death is non sectarian.
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.
I'm a Muslim, I'm a selfie. I'm a sharpie. This
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 not
prejudicial that doesn't have a problem take anybody's life.
That is completely oblivious of age. That is
teenagers, young men and women, middle aged,
doesn't care about gender doesn't care about status that doesn't care about race.
prosperous people, powerful people, and people would win plans. Death takes all of them also.
Anyone can die at any time.
And everyone will die at some time.
Doesn't make appointments,
no contingency plans.
Death claims individual death claims families, death claims, and the entire nation.
Just like that,
in the blink of an eye, that claims its victims,
while they are still in the womb.
And death snatches light from others, that a fully mature
and sensible 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 plan.
Not Have you thought tonight that she 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.
Were in a lady.
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
would just be another place.
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.
our preoccupation with children, wives, husbands, homes, automobiles, business, personal ambitions, and competing for material acquisitions
will allow death
like a thief in the night.
And in the morning, snack and snack
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.
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.
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
is the human being that is aware of its creator
is faithful is humble and striving to discipline themselves and willing to purify themselves. So Allah subhanaw taala says
In the Quran,
to each of us, that we will wish that we had listened as the Quran says
factor of the
day will come to each of us
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 by name
by culture Muslims by
those of us that are Muslims that we have not prayed
would you say to ourselves as a
human being as I'm
looking at the Quran sitting on that shelf, watching our mother pray watching our father pray afraid, seeing somebody else pray and
pray for me.
On that day, you will wish that you had made Google you will wish the
we wish that we had read
we will listen we had made
the door was open.
All we have to do is watch
pray and make our minister must correct ourselves but we never did.
We kept saying in Java as if it was a deck of cards
as inshallah some kind of special currency as inshallah some kind of guarantee to go live tomorrow, we kept saying inshallah
we will wish that we had made
that money you spent on your car, the money you spent on the furniture,
the money you spent on this hotel,
you could have made hydrometer but you didn't.
You said inshallah, when I get 60.
When I get all
these things, all these wrong things, when I get 60, I'm going to make a mess about
this is what some people is thinking.
They sell their life. They live in a house of the life.
They each have their life, they do
have a life. And then they think
that they will take $2,000
and they will go make health and all everything will be squared up.
Because they are foolish.
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.
We want to find a reason why
even if they came in apologize, we didn't want to accept it because we called ourselves reconciled 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 would wish that you had given away something
we will wish that we had our bad habits.
We will wish that we had not procrastinate and delayed.
We will wish that day
and never came
but that they will come but it will be too late.
That will come like a last breath
Come like a massive stroke
that will come as a total paralysis. Definitely Come on sleeping, or definitely come in the middle of your business activities.
Dear brothers and sisters,
if not then
he mentioned that the prophets of the law used to pray
out to the is that
what else was
used to say some of our money was stolen.
I seek refuge
in your power or was
the one whom there is no god except you.
The one who never dies, while the humans and the jinn
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
and optimize food.
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
and my brother,
that is the one Do not let them die before me.
She made this
the profit from above.
And he said,
You have asked the last
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
the brothers and sisters in Islam
reminds me that a loss of animal data he says to us and through the look of the blenders ecology. So that
they get to look for who and appreciate
and love the Hello
World one had the
in whose hands It is all the Dominion all the power.
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.
So that this medicine be able to benefit to meet and to you.
We asked him
this reminder, the one
that causes you an eye to reflect
upon without the benefit us with remembrance of him in this life. And that he calls us to think
often about this before it comes to this
