Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah

00:00:18--> 00:00:21

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

Allah Allah He was happy he was very,

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

um about

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

my dear,

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

respected to Allah.

00:00:37--> 00:00:39

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:00:42--> 00:00:50

I consider it a great privilege and honor to be here amongst you at the International Islamic University in Malaysia.

00:00:52--> 00:01:03

And I'm grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for giving me the opportunity to come here and to talk to you not once, but now I think this is the fourth time or something like that.

00:01:05--> 00:01:23

May Allah Allah put higher in this for you and me and make whatever I have to say beneficial for you and me and save us all from any evil that is contained in the thoughts and words of man.

00:01:27--> 00:01:41

My brothers sisters, the topic of today, as brother Riley mentioned is to try to understand the purpose of our existence. Why do we exist? Why Why are we there in the world?

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

Why did Allah subhanaw taala create us to do what

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

and I believe

00:01:50--> 00:01:55

that it is important for me to remind myself and to remind you about this purpose

00:01:57--> 00:01:58

because of Allah

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

a day will come

00:02:02--> 00:02:04

about which Allah subhanaw taala said

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

our will

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

Allah

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

Bow

00:02:24--> 00:02:25

Bow

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

wanna Hello?

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

year Oh,

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

you

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

saw the

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

day will come

00:02:56--> 00:02:59

when the breath will be stuck in the throat.

00:03:01--> 00:03:04

Allah. I don't know how many of you

00:03:08--> 00:03:10

have actually witnessed

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

actually seen a person dying?

00:03:17--> 00:03:22

I don't know how many of you have actually seen that actual last moments of somebody's life.

00:03:27--> 00:03:30

I have seen that.

00:03:36--> 00:03:36

And I can tell you

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

what light is what is

00:03:43--> 00:03:43

this what I

00:03:47--> 00:03:51

will say that when the breath is stuck in the throat

00:03:53--> 00:03:55

and you are standing there and looking on

00:03:58--> 00:04:01

when you're standing there and watching

00:04:02--> 00:04:05

a loved person, somebody will respect somebody who love

00:04:08--> 00:04:12

and somebody for whom there is nothing in the world that you will not do.

00:04:15--> 00:04:18

And what do you feel and what do you experience when you stand there?

00:04:19--> 00:04:21

Complete helplessness.

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

Complete helplessness.

00:04:25--> 00:04:27

There's nothing that you can do.

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

There is nothing that you can do.

00:04:31--> 00:04:33

And Allah says in the Quran.

00:04:37--> 00:04:40

Allah says return the breath in quantum reality.

00:04:42--> 00:04:46

If you are truthful, if you think you are so powerful because Allah

00:04:47--> 00:04:57

May Allah guide us. This is true of those who do not believe in Allah and if that was restricted to that, then there would be some justification for it

00:04:59--> 00:04:59

or so Allah to

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

Even some of the Muslims

00:05:04--> 00:05:09

they live lives where by their actions they are actually challenging the power of Allah Subhana Allah

00:05:14--> 00:05:18

and that and yet they say they are educated and yet they say that they are

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

very wise.

00:05:22--> 00:05:34

If you are educated and you are wise How do you challenge the power of Allah subhanaw taala when your education and your wisdom must tell you that you cannot even return one breath which is stuck in the throat.

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

That is the extent of your power. That's excellent.

00:05:43--> 00:06:01

That is excellent our and there's one last thing and the Quran clearly and openly challenging statement return the breath. In quantum sanity, you think you are so powerful, you think you are truthful all these great claims you make about your technology and power and this and that fine, no problem. one human being one single human being return that one breath

00:06:03--> 00:06:15

leave the rest of the world aside, we'll talk about all that power later on. inshallah, once you return this one breath, then we can have a place to talk something we can talk about. But if you cannot even return that one breath

00:06:18--> 00:06:20

then what are we talking about?

00:06:22--> 00:06:26

And that is the reason why it is very important for us to understand our purpose.

00:06:29--> 00:06:31

Because in the same surah

00:06:33--> 00:06:34

and these are the last Ayat of surah.

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

Allah subhanaw taala describe three kinds of people.

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

Three kinds of people

00:06:46--> 00:06:49

and it described their destinations

00:06:51--> 00:06:55

three kinds of people and he described their destinations where they will go

00:06:58--> 00:06:59

from

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

Robbie 401

00:07:19--> 00:07:20

salam alaikum.

00:07:25--> 00:07:26

From

00:07:38--> 00:07:39

me,

00:07:43--> 00:07:43

in

00:07:49--> 00:07:53

this new era of big law, the

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

main

00:08:01--> 00:08:02

three kinds of people

00:08:03--> 00:08:05

may Allah subhanaw taala include all of us

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

three kinds of people three different destinations.

00:08:15--> 00:08:18

What does it What does the destination depend on?

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

The destination we end up in

00:08:23--> 00:08:29

depends on whether or not we fulfill the purpose for which we were created.

00:08:32--> 00:08:38

My brothers sisters, Allah subhanaw taala created us for a purpose and he said about this purpose.

00:08:39--> 00:08:49

There is an individual purpose and the purpose for which the individual the human has been created. And there is a collective purpose for which this oma has been created.

00:08:52--> 00:08:55

And we as Muslims need to fulfill both these purposes.

00:08:57--> 00:09:06

The purpose for which Allah Subhana Allah created the individual is Allah subhanho wa Taala in our lives in laniado.

00:09:10--> 00:09:17

I have not created the jinn and the in the sun for anything other than my, my brother, my worship

00:09:21--> 00:09:26

and inshallah we'll see how it is actually possible to worship Allah subhanaw taala and every single thing we do,

00:09:27--> 00:09:42

I'm sure all of you are aware of these things, obviously. So you are from a premier Learning Institute in Islamic learning institution in the world, but it's a good thing unless it was a kid in the Caribbean called momineen. It's a good thing to remind ourselves again and again even though we know

00:09:46--> 00:09:54

so Allah subhanaw taala created as the individual purpose for which he created us, he said, masala Fujin our elderly

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

have not created the gene and the reason for anything other than my worship.

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

And the collective purpose for which Allah subhanaw taala created his own data set Quantum pyrometry in both rayjet leanness

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

and he described what is the purpose what is to be done tomorrow and I will narrow down how non ill Moncure

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

and he described the result of that

00:10:23--> 00:10:27

now, we take the individual purpose for which we have been created

00:10:28--> 00:10:38

the question obviously is that if Allah Subhana Allah created us only for his worship then how can I fulfill that purpose and why is it necessary to fulfill the purpose let me give you a very simple example

00:10:41--> 00:10:43

take this recording device here

00:10:44--> 00:10:48

now, if this thing stops working, what will you do?

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

You take it to the repair shop you try to see if you can repair it

00:10:52--> 00:10:57

and if the man says this is gone finished and cannot be repaired what do you do?

00:10:59--> 00:11:07

you convert it into a necklace locket and you say no after all this thing working give me good service for so many years I'm going to now hang it on my neck like a you know pendant

00:11:09--> 00:11:16

or maybe I will keep it in my house and I will look at it once in a while and say Mashallah, Mashallah so much good service you gave me Mashallah, you know, maybe we'll be happy.

00:11:18--> 00:11:20

You throw it in the garbage, you get a new one. Yes.

00:11:22--> 00:11:35

Same rule applies to everything we use, if there is something which has been created for a purpose, and that thing stops fulfilling its purpose, what do you do to try it?

00:11:37--> 00:11:40

Maybe if it is expensive and you try to repair it,

00:11:41--> 00:11:47

you knock it around a little bit and you see if it can be repaired, if it can be repaired, 100 law if it cannot be repaired junk

00:11:48--> 00:11:57

what is the definition of junk? What is the definition of trash? Something which does not fulfill its purpose anymore? That's trash.

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

Garbage, call it what you want. Same same thing. The thing with does not fulfill its purpose is garbage.

00:12:09--> 00:12:19

Now let's look at the purpose Allah squander created in our lives that we have, Allah says we have not created mankind and jinn for anything other than our worship.

00:12:22--> 00:12:27

So how can we worship Allah subhanaw taala. For this we have to understand the definition of the word worship. It's a what is a rather

00:12:29--> 00:12:37

Alibaba is anything which is done with the intention of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala and with the expectation of reward,

00:12:38--> 00:12:46

any action which is done with the intention of pleasing Allah subhanaw taala and with the expectation of reward, this is the definition of develop

00:12:48--> 00:12:55

naturally if the action is to please Allah subhanho wa Taala it must satisfy two conditions one that it should be in accordance with the Sharia.

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

And two that it should not be against the Sunnah.

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

Because if I do an action which is against the Sharia

00:13:04--> 00:13:17

For example, I say well I Allah is pleased if I feed the poor people but the country I live in I maybe I live in Australia or somewhere another country I live in the common food of the poor people is pork.

00:13:18--> 00:13:56

So feeding the poor people is a good thing. So I'm going to give them a brilliant dinner of great pork dishes. Let them eat a lot of pork and after that they like to have a you know, a couple of cans of beer after the after the meal so I'm going to give them cases of beer so let them have a nice big meal of pork and you know drink a few cans of beer and underlie and pleasing Allah subhanaw taala is a true No, no because it is haram for the Muslim to deal in in pork and to deal in beer whether he will give it away or sell it or you whatever it is. So the action even though the Nia is good, the Nia of the action is good. I want to praise Allah subhanaw taala the action itself enough

00:13:56--> 00:14:13

so he is against the Sharia of Islam therefore it is not acceptable. So I cannot say this is a valid or not. It is something something wrong because while I will tell the brother no don't do this, give them some food which is halal in it even if they are not Muslim for the Muslim to feed somebody which is haram for the Muslim guys.

00:14:17--> 00:14:19

So Eva is something which is

00:14:20--> 00:14:33

done with the intention of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala and which is done with the expectation of reward and therefore naturally that action must be in keeping with the Sharia of Islam and in keeping with the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:14:35--> 00:14:42

Now if we apply this condition to our life and we remember the purpose of our creation is to please Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:45--> 00:14:50

Let me remind myself and remind you how every breath we take, can become a valid

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

One is we live with his consciousness that I Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching me Allah May Allah Ambien Allah Allah
