Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Shara freedom ba when mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman, Kathira and cathedra for Mavado. My brothers and sisters in our lesson on death and hereafter,
it bears some level and some amount of reflection for us to think about this. And say that what is the reason why Muslims do what they do?
We're not talking here about people who don't want to who don't follow Islam because we're not talking about people who,
who deny Allah subhanaw taala and so on, as I mentioned, even they do not deny death, but the fact remains that they do not have any faith in any belief in the hereafter what we do. So why is it that even though we do not oppose this doctrine of resurrection verbally, we live our lives as if we don't believe that we will die and be resurrected and have to give account for what we said and did for our deeds and our and our speech. And that's the reason it is essential to satisfy yourself that the fact of resurrection is in fact true. And it will happen to all of us whether or not we choose to believe it. Preparing for it is a sign of intelligence living in a flat in heedlessness is a sign
of weakness or lack of evil altogether.
Why did the Muslim disappear last because of this question, why does a Muslim disobey Allah why does a Muslim gamble or go to the races or drink or commit Zina or deal in bank interest? Say that you know, I just sit there for the Elana says that if the first thing that was revealed in the Quran was not to drink alcohol or not to commit Zina, the people would have said we will never do that. But the first Surah that were revealed were about the gentleman the Johanna until the hearts of people became attached to Allah subhanaw taala and then the rules of Allah Allah Hara was set and people obeyed.
So from this beautiful Hadith, and the coal and the in the advice of our mother, say that in Asia, the death of the Lana, we understand the importance of understanding and reflecting on and embedding the glory and majesty of Allah subhanaw taala, the Asmath of Allah subhanaw taala in our hearts. This is the precursor This is the platform on which everything else runs. And that platform is the glory and majesty of Allah subhanho wa taala. This does not require a PhD in Islamic sciences. It does not require anything it just requires intelligence. It requires reflection it requires using our eyes and ears and our faculties and senses. It requires focusing and reflecting on what Allah
subhanaw taala blessed us with. It requires us to look around ourselves that requires us to read the Quran, it requires us to be conscious of what ever ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala gave us until the glory and majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala is fixed and embedded in our hearts and our hearts are illuminated with the law and with the light of his Kashi.
This is the fundamental thing. Without is nothing else will work you can read you can memorize the Quran, you can get a PhD in every every branch of Islamic sciences, unless
the Asmath and the end the glory and magnificence and the all and the majesty and the hardship of Allah subhanaw taala is embedded in the heart. None of that will affect us.
Nothing will affect us.
My shirt used to say that the minor the minor word, right?
It is it's about which can be taught to speak. So he used to say that a minor or even a pirate for that matter. can be taught to speak it can be taught to recite the Kalama it can be taught Surah of the Quran what not.
But when the cat catches the minor eye when the cat catches the parrot. Will it recite the Kalama or will it say
it will go back to its original speech.
What up nissaki bullyville type? O calvani Bertha Barani PATA the belieber Greggy minor go to TiVo. So Jai Watoto I was a paramiko for Angela Nagel. yellowtop Misaki but
even if the parrot is half of the Quran when the cat catches the parrot that parent will not recite Quran the parrot will speak its original speech.
What is our originals?
Is it Laila?
Or is it something else?
We hear so many stories of these of this kind where people at the time they are dying. They talk about what was
uppermost in their minds. I heard a story about this lady who used to work in the stock exchange, who kept saying buy sell, buy, sell, buy, sell, and she died like that. Not a Muslim. But the point I'm making is that we will die the way we lived. That is why I lost my editor is it Yeah, you know
it the hula haka, Ducati, Wallah Madonna. 11. Muslim. Right. Allah's Mother said oh you believe have Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala as it is is right that you should have a stopwatch and do not die except in a state of Islam.
How can I assure myself how can I ensure that I will not die except in a state of Islam by living in a state of Islam because I don't know when that will come.
I do not know when death will come.
say for example, if you if Ferrari send you a t shirt
with a Ferrari logo on it and says that wear this t shirt
and we will send a representative of ours with a brand new Ferrari.
The key to that brand new Ferrari
and this rep will come and can come at any time of the day right.
And when this person knocks on your door and you open the door if you are wearing that T shirt, Ferrari t shirt,
that rep will give you the key to the Ferrari car is yours. Gift
What will we do?
Believe me that T shirt is going to become a second skill for you.
Right You will live in that T shirt you will go to bed in that T shirt you will shower that T shirt you will go to the toilet in that T shirt. You will not take that T Shirt off
the Ferrari guy can come at any time and the the the reward of wearing the t shirt is that I get a brand new Ferrari
What about Janna?
The reward of dying with La Ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah
How is that going to happen? If we live by that?
There is no other way.
My brothers sisters, the thing that I just told us is that the Sahaba Allah subhanaw taala reveals or an in the Macan period, which focused on the glory and majesty of Allah. It focused on the Acura it focused on the agenda on Jana and on the NA
it focused on the whole concept of resurrection,
that we will be resurrected no matter what happens to us. Even if you are atomized, we will be resurrected. Because Allah subhanaw taala della della who is not dependent on anything, Allah created us from nothing.
So how Allah can recreate us no matter what happens to us
and He will recreate us he told us he promised that you will be recreated and you will stand before Allah and I will stand before Allah to give account.
So when this
took root in the hearts of the Sahaba, then obeying Allah was very easy.
See the the example of of alcohol is so important because both alcohol and gambling are addictive.
They are addictive.
Yet the Sahaba give them up just like that one shot.
You're talking about people who were alcoholics. They drank alcohol all their lives. They were alcoholics, there was a need the body yearn for it.
But when the ayat of the hermit of the prohibition of alcohol came Rasulillah Salam did not have a police force. He did not enforce he didn't put people in jail. He didn't beat people. He did not even set up a detoxification Sanitarium or clinic.
Nothing. This hour, just give it up. Alcoholics Anonymous is a school friend of mine who was an alcoholic for 30 years. His father actually wrote a book about that
He causes unimaginable grief to everybody when he didn't intend to that, but that's what happened because of his alcoholism.
And his father told me that one thing which stuck in my mind, he said, where I spoke to the, he was going to report with Alcoholics Anonymous in a sanitarium, and so on and so forth. And he, he got, you know, within quotes cured, I'm saying within quotes, because the guy, the person there, the counselor, he said to the etc, his father, he said that, he said that he said that he also used to be an alcoholic. And he said, the first thing to understand about alcohol is that there is no cure.
If you are addicted to alcohol, you are addicted to alcohol. There is no cure.
So he said, what, what can we do, he said, Just stay away from it.
Stay away from it. The cure is, don't go near it. He said, even if you have stayed away for 20 years, you take one drink, and you're hooked back again.
Stay away from it. That's how powerful it is.
So also gambling. I know I know cases, I know actual names of people who had enormous wealth and who literally came on the street, who literally bankrupted and beggared themselves and their families.
By betting on horses or betting on all kinds of gambling, things that they used to do.
It is a it is a it is a it is an addiction. It's a very powerful addiction, both of these, but both of these just went like that one shot, how, because the glory and magnificence of ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala was embedded, had taken root
and completely illuminated the hearts of the Sahaba resources
to focus on the
glory and majesty follow Samaritan
and the first that's why the first principle of tarbiyah is to inculcate the love of Allah in the hearts of people and to strengthen that connection with Allah Samaritan.
The love of Allah comes from the huget of Allah, the glory and magnificence of Allah in our hearts and that creates hope of Allah Samantha.
The reason why the reason why most people disobey Allah subhanaw taala especially in the matter of variety, and Halal and Haram is that for the most part, it's not because of ignorance, but because of a weakness of even for people today the vape is not real.
Like the unperceivable is not real. Jana and Jana are not real.
Says I live in Abuja Galarneau said even if I see Jana before me, I will not love it any more than I already do.
What are the tell you? He says that Jana is so real to me? That even if I see it, there's nothing surprising.
I will not love it more. I went oh my god, this Oh fantastic. is so beautiful. I didn't realize no.
He said that.
Listen to the solar laser Selam explaining and talking about Jana and Anna, these are so real.
That if I actually see John I will not love it anymore. If I actually see the fire I will not be afraid of it in any more than I already am.
And that's because the gentleman Jahannam was so real for him and this is not exclusive to him or other law. No, it this was a state of the Saba all of them.
And for that reason, it is it is so important to talk about the ACA in our gatherings and to remind ourselves about the promises of Allah subhanho About Jana and Jana, constantly at home and in our gatherings. So that these things become real for us. What is not mentioned ceases to exist in the minds of people. What is mentioned becomes real what is not mentioned becomes unreal.
And we must not have allow that to happen in this case.
The best example of this is COVID
COVID. Yes, it is dangerous. Yes, it is infectious. Yes, it has killed a lot of people.
But is this the most dangerous the most?
You know lethal,
the most infectious of all diseases? Not by a longshot.
Not by a longshot. People die of heart disease.
People die of high cholesterol. People die of cancer.
People die of smoking related diseases in America alone. Half a million people died last year.
Thanks to cigarette smoking,
smoking related tobacco related
illnesses, that was the reason, half a million people died. Where when did you hear that? When did you see that headline? When was somebody asking questions in Congress and in the House of Representatives, or in parliament in the UK, or in the India, wherever, talking about the number of people who are dying because of cigarette smoking,
people die of car accidents, roughly 15 to 20,000 people die in America every year because of gun violence,
accidentally or deliberately.
But all that we hear is COVID.
I open the Weather app to see what the weather is going to be like. And there is a ticker at the bottom at the at the bottom saying how many COVID deaths today and how many infections today.
So many people tested positive, and so many people died?
That I'm not saying you know that I'm just saying that this is proof that what you constantly talk about what you constantly remind yourself about becomes very real to you. And what you don't talk about
it's as if it doesn't exist.
So when we talk about
what about the glory and magnificence almost 100?
When do we talk about this?
We need to do this thing. We need to do this thing very, very seriously.
In the early 1930s, alcohol was declared illegal and prohibition was enforced in the United States.
Somebody took a good decision, they said this is bad for everybody. There's nothing
edify or intelligent about introducing a
toxic chemical into the body in the name of entertainment or whatever.
They tried to for four years.
They spend millions of dollars in trying to enforce it.
1000s of people who did
all kinds of things.
And after four years, they repealed the law.
And they said it is not possible to enforce.
prohibition keeps getting enforced and keeps getting removed. Of course, there's a whole
this whole other reason of, you know, a black market and then corruption and whatnot. But point being that
prohibition is probably the most unsuccessful law that will ever passed.
But think about is that when the IRS prohibiting the the drinking of alcohol will reveal.
In Medina during the seizure of banana deal, Jamil Hassan cave was a treasure seller with the ayat prohibiting the drinking of alcohol. As soon as he recited the IRS to the Sahaba were with him. And they went out into the streets of Medina and decided the ayat that alcohol is haram. And as we Malaga Delana says I was serving alcohol to some of the Sahaba I threw the jug from my hand.
So the Sahaba had cups in their hands, and they threw them away. Some alcohol in their mouths the spirit out, and others who had drunk it, they put a finger inside and vomited off without any enforcement.
people obeyed the order instantly as soon as they heard it. And this is because the glory of Allah subhanaw taala was deep in their hearts. Allah subhanaw taala was real to them. And they believed the hereafter without any doubt. So obedience was easy.
Not only did they do that, the amazing thing was that many of them used to have they used to distill alcohol with from dates and from grapes. So they had vats of alcohol, of wine in their in their homes. They took those vats and they emptied them in the drains and then they smashed the containers.
When possible as a result of her heard about this, he called the people and he said Why are you breaking the containers? They said jasola We do not even want to be reminded of a time when we disobeyed Allah.
I think about that, when they were drinking alcohol, whether disobeying Allah, they were not deserving of love when the law had not come.
And as soon as the law came to me it was one other
yet the reality of Allah was so real
that they said even if it is something when we were doing it, it was not illegal, but now it's illegal meaning Allah didn't like it even then and that's the first it was that
don't even want to be reminded of that time that we used to do this.
pleasing Allah subhanaw taala was number one priority for them.
And therefore my brother sisters, talking about death hereafter, the first thing for us to correct is our email.
Until that is rectified and made strong obedience to Allah subhanaw taala will always be a struggle will always be difficult. And we may well end up with some serious consequences. When we need our Imam the most, that is at the time of our own death.
That is when shaitan is going to play his full game. Right now he's just toying with us.
Then, at the Denver death, he's going to do his maximum to shake us to shake our faith and take us out of Islam.
If our Eman is the way it is today,
will it help us when we are dying? That's the question to ask ourselves.
There are three stages to this whole series of classes on death and hereafter. First one is depth and the journey of the soul.
is ilevel Baroque which is the cover the the grave and the day of judgment. And then Jana and Johanna
these are the three
stages of this lecture or this series of classes
that is called
in Arabic in our Slavic language, it is called Alpha Gamma to surah. The small gamma, the small Day of Judgment.
A death is the beginning of the day of judgment.
Some of the Bedouins they
would come to us one or one group came to Brussels and Salah and
they said Yasser Allah sunrise, Allah, when is the hour, when is the day of judgment.
So as soon as salam looked at the youngest of them, there was a boy with them. He looked at the youngest of them and he said, If Allah subhanaw taala gives him a long life, then before he dies,
the Day of Judgment of all of you would have started.
Think about this.
This group of people come bang with them is a small is a little boy. And they said yours will Allah, Allah, Allah, when is the day of judgment? And also Allah is Allah Sanchez to them. He looks at the little boy and he says, if Allah subhana, Allah gives him a long life, that all of you others would for you, your day of judgment would have started before he dies.
So what is he talking about? What is the day of judgment? The day of judgment of the individual begins at the point of his death.
My Day of Judgment will be the day I die. Yours will be the Dave day.
And that's why it's called Kevin. All right, the small cabin crew it is yeah.
It is the day of judgment. It begins when we die.
Allah subhanho wa Taala gathers a lot of
whatever happens in the world good, bad, ugly, beautiful, whatever happens only and only by the holder of the power the will the permission of Allah.
But Allah subhanaw taala does not. However, Allah subhanaw taala does not hold our hand and guide us to something. Allah subhanaw taala gave us the power to obey or disobey.
And he gave us
to teach us what is beneficial for us and what is not beneficial for us.
In addition to that, he sent a teacher, vamos Allah Allah is Allah who demonstrated for us in his own beautiful and blessed life, what is beneficial
but Allah subhanaw taala does not and did not appoint the nabi alayhi salam to compel anybody to do anything.
And let's read that as it will Illa co mirabito from mansha volumen opuntia Afonya
say to them, Omaha Salah that the truth is from Euro
the fruit truth is from your rub from your Sustainer, creator, maintainer protector
and those who want to believe

there's no compulsion that econavi did. Ayahuasca in a way.
There is no compulsion Islam there's no compulsion within the two paths have been clearly shown, demarcated, flat posted
between goodness and evil. What is good what is bad has been clearly shown there's no confusion
for my year for which taboo do you mean belay fucker this Thumbsucker below what the roots column is
the one who denies and rejects false deities and false laws and false rules and fall regulations
and all kinds of falsehood. The person who rejects all that falsehood
has grabbed hold
of a handhold which will not break
on your foot without booty, we will Milla and who has brought faith or Allah and who believes in Allah.
Further these terms like the last column is Allah.
He has grabbed a handhold which will not break we ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us this.
So it's very important for us to understand that Allah subhanaw taala showed the way and then Allah in his infinite wisdom, leaves it to us to choose what we want. And whatever we want that road that path will be open for us that path will be will become
easy for us.
The one who chooses Goodness, goodness will recover easy, the one who chooses evil evil will become easy
we cannot say
that we were forced to do this or that.
Allah subhanaw taala

But Allah subhanaw taala said to him in a coma YUTAN were in the home Mobutu verily U O Muhammad wa sallam will die and verily they will also die. They meaning all his opponents.
