rather evil Hungary Lucha Libre Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala luxury villa MBA will mousseline Mohamed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam to Sleeman Kathira cathedra from above my brothers and sisters, we are on the death and hereafter series of lectures and as I
sat down today to make to record this lecture, I got news of the passing away of a cousin of mine in a car accident between Medina and waka. He had gone there for an hour with his family and they were working from within at work. And
in LA when
he died, he passed away. And we asked Allah subhanaw taala, for generative for those rather for him and his family is
they are injured and we ask Allah subhanaw taala, to cure them and to help them in this difficult moment. My idea of saying this, next and mentioning this, of course, is for your da. But even more for us to for it to be a reminder for you and me that only the way in which we go into the parliament bars of changes only the way in which we will be farmers will have done the changes.
Some go in one way, some go in another way. Somebody goes because of an accident, somebody goes because of illness.
Somebody goes with apparently no reason. I mean, just just dropped it.
And we have seen many such cases, perfectly healthy, athletic
people in top physical condition,
just dropped, it
sort of doesn't matter. It's all young, the reality is that we will die.
And that is why it is so important to prepare for this reality. That's the reason why this also Salem called it a sign of intelligence. He said you're the he said the famous hubbies which all of us know when he said that the most intelligent of you is the one who remembers his death most often. So, it is very important for us to
to remember that we will die. And obviously the purpose of remembering that is not because you know we are we should go into some kind of morbid depression but but so that we prepare for it hemorrhage, where that death, we ask Allah subhanaw taala for this will be the best news that can be given to us. The debtor will moment is the happiest time
of his life, the happiest day of his life. Yes, there is for his family and for his friends and so on who are left behind.
There is the bane of bereavement. And so they are sad, but even among them,
those who understand those who have knowledge of Islam and those who those who are connected to Allah subhanaw taala will be sad only because of the pain of party. Not because they are sad for the person. They're very happy for the person.
Very happy for the person that Hamdulillah He lived a good life. And now he's gone to his job. And he's he has reached that day that he had been waiting for on his life and we asked him to make that day the best day of his life, which is which is what he wanted. This is the this is the thing that will happen. Like I said in the last lecture,
mod FDR Kapha Dominicana

that is not the name of the ending or cessation of existence. That is the name of the ending of choice,
the ending of the ability to do anything.
Now, let me add one more to this. Debt is not the ending of suffering
or of joy.
Right. So if you had if you are living a life, very beautiful life, full of goodness full of joy, and you had a you were having a whale of a time and you die, that death is not the ending of that rejoicing. Similarly, if you were living a life of great
pain and suffering and you know problems, and you die, then that is not the end of that suffering. We hear this all the time.
Especially we hear it when people have died, who are suffering who are in hospital or something, or who had some disease or some problem.
And people say, Oh, at least all of a sudden the cliff toccata movie, even though it is the pain is ended,
know, whether the pain has ended, or the pain is now starting and this pain which is starting will never end, whether the joy has ended, or whether now the real joy starts and that joy will never end. This depends on what they were doing when they were alive.
That is, death is therefore not the ending of pain or joy. It is the beginning of pain or joy and the pain or joy that begins at death will never end.
That is forever.
And that depends on how we lived our life.
If we lived our life,
trying to please Allah subhanaw taala
then we were living a life in which we were very joyful and really happy because I have never seen a person who's trying to please Allah who was not happy. People, other people forget about other people. Other people might say, Oh, but you know, his support, or he could have made so much money. Or she could she is so poor, or she could have done this, he could have done this. No, don't worry about it. People don't know people are looking from the outside, they have no clue what's going on inside the hearts of those people. Anyone trying to please Allah subhanho wa Taala is living a life of beautiful, beautiful joy, they are having a ball over time.
You don't know they don't care that you don't know why you're doing
what you're doing
to their having a grand tech
and insha Allah if they live their life to try to please Allah subhanaw taala they enjoy doing that and then when they die, now they get the reward for honors manual talent, that reward never ends. So their happiness has not ended. But happiness is now beginning and that when what began now
will not end.
On the other hand, if somebody was living a life which was very happy and full of apparently from again, looking from the outside, apparently full of great, you know, luxury and enjoy and, and having a
absolute absolute sort of enjoyment and indulging in everything
that Allah subhanaw taala is private or Malabo productores on that. So people get sidetracked and people get like, like with the case of Chiron people's our karma was doing and people say oh, we wish that Allah would make us like this.
But what happens, what happens on current date?
What happens when such people die.
And let's write that essay, we catch them, we grab them in the middle of their enjoyment,
while mobile is on and then they are broken in spirit,
that happiness will end and the pain that begins is forever.
So death is not the ending of existence, it is the ending of choice.
And those choices determine
whether at depth,
pain starts, or happiness starts.
So that is the beginning. That is not the end, that is the beginning of the life of the accurate just as our birth is the beginning of the life of this dunya similarly death is the beginning of the life of the earth.
Continuing with that, and thinking about that, as soon as I informed us, we were talking about the importance of the Dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala and of the fact that
I'm not around that I said that gounesco Remember me and I will remember just try to think about this to try to get this into your hearts and minds and say what is the meaning of Allah subhanaw taala thing I will remember
my understanding of it and Allah knows best is that Allah will mention your name on his ash.
Allah will point you out to the macabre boon to those who are around Allah subhanho wa Taala holy lush around his ash
this the meaning of being remembered by Miss Martha
what value does it have for us still?
Does it have value? And remember all of these things is not simply a matter of saying yes it has value
Obviously, you will say that I will say that almost.
But if something has value, then we demonstrate that
if you think something has value, we demonstrate that by
trying to get the maximum out of it.
Gold has value how do we know that because people all over the world are behind running behind gold, they won't put.
So does the reserve almost none of that I have value. Does the seeker of Allah have value? And that's what I want to deal with.
Allah say Allah, they get what Allah Subhanallah Tallac when Allah mentioned you, this is the best, this is the highest.
Surah Surah said on the authority of what are the land who said that maybe some sallam said in other words, you could see as you could see the Hadees, which Allah subhanaw taala has, unless around delas meaning and those are sometimes words so I lost around that inspired and revealed it was also salam who expressed it in his own words. The Quran is Allah's words and Allah's meaning.
That's it long as I repeated the app, which he which he received, in the case of hydrogen could see the solar cell service is extra expressing what he received. In his own words. He says, Allah says,
Allah says, in the case of, of the of the heat of the Quran, there is a loss of water as a whole, who Allah who had a solar solar cell and did not say Allah said, I am one, he simply repeated cold, who Allah who
say, Allah is unique.
And I had, but in this case, in the case of Addis Ababa conceir, which was it last month, and it says this.
So in this case,
Surah Surah Salam said, Allah said, I am as my slave thinks I am,
and are in the Zuni appdb.
So I am
for my slave, as he thinks I am.
think of Allah subhanaw taala.
And we expect all of us Mantella the best, as well as restaurants that always expect the best from Europe.
So in any situation, don't expect the worst, no one's Oh, this might go wrong, that might have a nose or Hamdulillah.
The circumstances of the situation of the world
does not overpower Allah.
Allah Subhana Allah is the creator of the world and
and whatever be the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala with respect to situations, it is in the power of Allah subhanaw taala to save me from the harm of that situation if he wishes. And so I asked Allah subhanaw taala to save me from the hub of the situation.
And many pieces of evidence about this. For anyone who wants evidence, one of the most powerful is the situation of divine village, and how he was saved from being burned in the fire.
Allah subhanaw taala did not put out the fire.
Unless Valladolid did not prevent Ibrahim alayhi salam from from falling into the fire.
The fire remain there.
The people have now ruled that evil intention was allowed to go to its completion so that it becomes a witness against them on the Day of Judgment.
They were allowed to throw in rain well is arriving to the fire as it was their wish. They will not stop from doing that.
Allah subhanaw taala did not take you wherever they Salam away, midair
to a place of safety.
The people of the road who are watching this whole thing
this What did they see?
They saw that they were successful. They saw that the interviewer of Allah who
was actually catapulted into the middle of this roaring fire rolling in thermal
and it disappeared in the fire.
They rejoice they said we have burned it.
But did anybody know?
Allah subhanaw taala changed the nature of the fire only for Ibrahim alayhi salam
not even for the ropes with which he had been bumped. The fire burned the ropes, but did not touch the skin of the brain Melissa
didn't didn't touch a single hair of the prime minister.
And the fire became a means of comfort and mean means of safety for the Prime Minister. Because Allah subhanaw taala ordered the virus that Colina said we said, Khulna? Yeah and I recall the burden was saliva and I live right.
Both fire call down and become a means of safety for the Prime Minister.
This is the holder of the Philosoraptor. So Allah is saying Anna in the journey of the baby,
I am the way my slave
thinks I am.
Meaning my relationship with my slave is the way he wants it to be.
And this is not only
restricted to simply thinking, if I think that Allah subhanaw taala is with me, then I make sure through my ama that I do not do anything which can endanger that relationship.
Then other than then the Hadees continues unless vada says I am with him, when he mentioned
if you mentioned me to himself, I mentioned him to myself. And if you mentioned we in an assembly, I mentioned him in an assembly better than the better than his assembly.
And if you draw near to me by an arm's length, I draw near to Him by a fathoms length. And if he comes to me walking, I go to him at speed.
Now what am I distributors?
What a column from our agenda, how you are you and how you will for you
and how you will live the life mode.
And what is that company that you mentioned in the Quran? And in this edition
he said in his column
I was we live in a shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. What are the mullah? You gotta
feed I mean How dare she use a beer hold on to some beer on your hand you don't beat him up all the way you know home. All the Vayner home will help pay with a little hamdulillah bill
and he said you will see the angels surrounding the Throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala from all around glorifying the praises of the Arab geladeira one day all the creatures will be judged with truth and to be said All Praise and thanks be to Allah the amug datamine
sisters that's to deflect on this one thing Allah is mentioning your name plays mentioning your name on his ash
I mean your May Allah mentioned your name is Ash
How does it make you feel?
How does it make you feel?
Go inside your heart
go inside your heart
now ask yourself this question go inside your heart.
What do you see?
Let us stop living these mechanical lives where you and our Ibadah is mechanical and culture.
We worship because it is supposed to be done
not because it is something we love to do and we look forward to it. Allah Masha Allah may Allah make us among those who really worship Allah subhanaw taala because they love Allah so
if we cannot even connect to Allah subhanho wa Taala when we are worshiping Him what hope is there for us when we are engaged in other things
we talked about reflecting Salah y'all have it was longer May Allah protect me from just
reminding myself and saying that if I cannot even have concentration when I'm standing in Salah meaning I made ooo I went to the masjid I'm standing in the masala the whole reason for that is to connect with Allah subhanaw taala and and as you can get it right
then what hope is there of me connecting with Allah subhanaw taala when I'm when I'm in my business or driving a car or cooking my food or
working in the garden or whatever else I'm doing
if I can't even do it when I'm standing on masala before Allah subhana data how can I do it elsewhere?
Whether that whole life is meant formerly this
that is tragic enough for those who know that is tragic enough for those who don't know and about how much more tragic for those who know him and worshiping.
People must again people who are kuffaar or designing Allah subhanaw taala they cannot connect to it okay, so they cannot connect him but what about Muslims?
My brothers sisters, let us change now.
This gene now,
the first condition of building this connection with Allah is to show gratitude
to have sugar.
The way to demonstrate sugar is through obedience.
The way to demonstrate sugar and love of Allah is by obeying Allah.
The way to demonstrate our sugar for Rasul Allah is on Salah and of love for us to realize and Salah is through his Fatima is through emulating him.
Disobedience is ingratitude. It is rebellious disobedience is to declare your ingratitude because we use what Allah gave us in opposition to his will.
And Allah promised his punishment for that. So let us be, beware. And let us
fear that punishment.
Allah gave me eyes and I look at haram. Allah gave me years and I listened to haram. Allah gave me a tongue and I speak around. Allah gave me strength, and he gave me power and I use it to oppress other people.
In that delay, so sad, so tragic, this is what we are doing.
This is what Muslims are doing.
They said, if others are doing it, that is bad enough. But if Muslims are doing it, how much worse
obedience is the key to the treasures of Allah subhanaw taala.
Obedience is the essence of our audience. Obedience is the principal characteristic of the MBL, etc.
Obedience is the single most important sign that you trust the one who gave the commands.
You don't obey only those who you don't trust,
whose intentions you doubt, we will believe do not have your best interests at heart. And that they may cause you harm that will be obeying them might be harmful to you. So you're not aware that
you don't obey those you don't respect or you consider them worthy of being obeyed you don't consider them worthy of being obeyed. ask you
Is this what you believe? What Allah and about a sorcerer?
Do we trust them? We respect them, do we consider them to be our well wishes or not?
And if the answer is yes, and inshallah it is that it is yes, then what is the problem with obeying them?
Unless one of them tells us about his colleague, Ibrahim alayhis salam obeyed Him completely and totally
and he said, is honorable Rabu a slim call Aslam to their ability
when he's upset to him submit, he said I have submitted I have submitted myself to the rub of the anime
Allah subhanaw taala told him to leave his wife and newborn child in a barren Valley and go away.
He did that. And then he made his dua Roberta in the US gone to min Duryea TV word in it these are in in the way tickle Mohammed banal up was solid 5g I feel that I'm in the NASS
the heavy lay the heavy lay him was Home Minister, Marathi La La from your school. He said while Rob made some of my offspring to dwell in an uncollectible Valley by your sacred house. The Kiowa in order or our Rob that day may establish a solid
comedy cellar. So fill some hearts among men with love for them. And Ola provide them with fruits so that they may give thanks.
Then when the child is able to walk Allah subhanaw taala commodity Rahim Ali salam to sacrifice the child to slaughter the child as a sacrifice to Allah.
What does he do? This father
who hasn't seen him for until from the time you left him as a little infant
to that time?
So he leaves when goes away. And then when he comes back
he's asking this child a question
and that blows you away for Think about that. This is a 90 year old father talking to our child who's probably less than 10 years old.
Allah subhanaw taala tells us about this amazing God with conversation. Furama Bella Mara who Saria called when a year in the field
in near rockville, Miami, as well who got
tomorrow, Saturday Dooney
insha Allah whom you know saw beauty, but I'm Salama Waterlow little Jimmy. One hour the
concert Dakota ruya in in Kedah Licona duessel Morosini in hada Allah well Bella all will be
further you know who is Eva Han housy What are gonna really mean feel? Feeling? So, Munna Isla Imran he, because he cannot use a little more Sunni, in a home in Ariba meaning
Allah subhanaw taala tells us
and when he the son was old enough to walk with him, so you're not talking here about a teenager or
somebody in their 20s We're talking about a young small child who's just about able to walk with his father, old enough to walk with them. So I'm saying, my my estimation, less than 10 Voila.
So what is his father's day the Bible is over 90 years old.
And the father hadn't seen him for from the time he was he left him there of which probably the little infant has no memory. So the for him for the infant is literally seeing his father for the first time.
And that father when is when is when he the son was old enough to walk with him. He said, Oh my son I've seen in a dream that I'm slaughtering you. Have a offering even sacrifice to Allah. So look, what do you think? Look, what do you see? Ponzo mother Tara, this travellish always says by what do you think? I don't know how this
Malhotra is what you see. So he's sitting looking look in your heart. What do you see there?
He said oh my father, do what you have been commanded to do.
Inshallah, you will find me of this, or we have people who are patients. They're men, they had both submitted themselves to the will of Allah and he had laid in prostate on his fight or the side of his arm inside for sloggi.
Allah says, We called out
so again, Allah speaking directly to reminisce over him. You have fulfilled the vision.
Verily, thus do We reward the mercy? No, indeed. That was a manifest trial. It was a very, very difficult test. And we ransomed him with a great sacrifice with Rahm and we live for him a good remembrance among the generations to come in later times. We do this we commemorate this in Israel that to this day, probably about 4000 years since this thing happened.
Salmonella Ibrahim, Salam I never know him and he said um, does indeed do We reward the Mercy known
the people who strive for excellence in obedience of Allah Subhana Allah, verily, he was of one of Our believing slaves.
Obedience complete and taught. That a word that was the whole of Allah, the closeness to Allah subhanaw taala where it was his Rob, who became the witness for his obedience, and honored him such that to this day 1000s of years after Ibrahim is married and had Ali has Salam aleikum wa salam have all passed away.
That take the names are taken with great honor. people name their children after these people.
That actions have been made. The rituals, the actual rituals of the greatest story by that hajj,
and their sacrifices, commemorated every part of the world.
To the amazing family, family of people who are totally obedient on us.
And those around Adela accepted the dua of Ibrahim alayhis salam and said Mohamed Salah Salem as his messenger with the same duties that Brian Melissa asked him for.
And those that I mentioned the driver about our bathy him Rasul Allah means you have to Allah in my Attica wildly Mohammed Al Kitab, Al Hikmah, or Yuzuki him in Africa and the ladies will hack him
while Rob send among them a messenger of their own
lands and this dua by sending Mohamed Salah Salem, who shall recite unto them Your Ayat and instruct them in the book.
The Quran and Al Hikmah sunnah
wisdom and purify them Verily you are the Almighty and always Allah subhanaw taala Jane the order of these four four
desires and four requests because you knew what was required before which what he kept them all as primal Islamiat Aston is
I remind myself that obedience pays
it as simple as that.
We ask Allah subhana data to help us to become obedient slaves. We ask Allah subhana data to help us to remember that one day we will meet him and that day is very, very near.
And that is why he called it a sign of intelligence to remind ourselves of that day. Well, Solana will Karim Allah Allah He was I remember how to get over him. He was
