My dear sisters, we are talking about the importance of reflecting on the forum.
in that connection, I want to remind myself a new
importance of reflecting on
that day, which will come for all of us
if you ask me to introduce myself,
or if you ask anybody to introduce themselves,
What will I say what will they say,
we will introduce ourselves in the context of our family, I am so and so from this family. And that I have may not always say because I would say that only were the people I'm talking to know about the families and so on so forth. Like in America here where I'm living now, if somebody asked me to introduce myself, I will not talk about I'm from this family and that family because they don't know anything about that here. So that is one but there is a reference point. The second thing that I would introduce myself, or you would introduce yourself is by talking about
maybe your educational qualifications, so I have this qualification that qualifications honors.
Third thing is maybe you talk in terms of what do you own, like, what properties what businesses
I am the founder of, such as, as a company and so on, or you talk and or you talk in terms of your position in the world, so it might be an organizational position, I'm the CEO of this company, or it might be a position in, you know, in a social setup, I am the president of this Masjid, or I'm the head of this organization, whatever, right? So we're talking about family, we're talking about
educational qualifications, we are talking about our occupation, this is what I do and so on profession, of you're talking about possessions in terms of property, these that are we are talking about designations positions, right. So, I'm just now you can add to that list, the point is
the that these things will be different for all of us. So, if I introduce myself, then somebody else will introduce themselves necessarily,
will differ in terms of what they say about themselves, right, that difference has to be there, there's no way that two people will be will say the same thing, they might be in the same profession, but we would be different in in different ways. So, these things differ for others, but there is one thing which is the same for all of us, irrespective of who we are. And irrespective of all of these things, irrespective of family,
educational qualification, possessions, material possessions, intellectual you know, whatever greatness educational qualifications are one thing which is common to all of us every single one will have the same thing we are we differ in all of these things, but we are common and one in one in another thing that is that a day will come when we will leave all of these
all of these will be taken away from us
every single one of them
including our name
these glasses will be taken away from my face this trophy will be taken away from my head this job will be taken away from my body Forget all that
even my name will be gone
because when they bring my body to pray Serato janazah they will not say play chef yeah about here place place. Put chef our there No, they will say move the body.
Bring the janitor forward behind turn the janitors or this way or that way the janitor is my name janessa
so if you if I introduce myself to the say please What are you? I am janazah
What would you say? It was a Japanese IV This is not even a joke. I mean what kind of thing is this? This is bad, bad taste.
But my brother it's not bad taste. That is the reality.
That is the reality.
You are a Gen Xer. I'm a I'm a Gen Xer, we are walking Genesis,
because all the ways in which we introduce ourselves today
Mind calm young
woman de la hubback. Allah subhanaw taala said whatever is with you will perish will finish will go
but what is with Allah will remain, or mind the labor.
This is the reminder for us.
And this Allah with whom, what we send forward, our deeds, our actions, all that we say all that we do, which we have sent to him, Allah subhanaw taala reassures us of His mercy.
My brothers sisters,
let's run into as many see
my other hand, the Rahim molecularity. He is the Most Merciful and his mercy has the quality of being everlasting. The peak which never declines,
is the quality of origin.
And this Rob says, He who is he? He's mad acuity.
This is to reassure us to reassure his slaves, listening to us in sha Allah, all my slaves, you will come before me on that day. There's no doubt about that law, labor fee.
Love Eva feel young within, there is no doubt about the Day of Judgment, but you will come before me, but remember, that you will come before the one whose Mercy is greater than his anger.
When Mercy is greater than his anger, Guevara, buco Allah,
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah as your rubber has written for himself, mercy, ask Allah Subhana Allah, for his mercy for all of us, and his forgiveness for all our sins of commission or omission.
Then Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the fact that he is the Owner of the Day of Judgment of brothers and sisters, that they will come and we will see it, I can say that with more certainty
that tomorrow will come. And I will see it more than that.
Tomorrow may come, but I'm not sure whether I will be alive to see it. But the your will,
will come and I will see it
and you will see it. Whether you believe it or you don't believe it makes no difference. You will see it.
And that is the reason why we must prepare for it
is our day of judgment begins when we hear the knock on the wall.
The knock on the door. And that will be I'm swinging that figuratively, molecule mouth does not knock and come. molecule mode just comes our young will akhira our day of judgment will begin the day malaco mode comes to us. Mark or Mark come for us.
Around Allah Allah subhanaw taala gave me
the privilege and the honor of seeing some incredibly amazing things. Some incredibly amazing things have happened to me and I thank my Rob over and over and over for that.
And among those incredibly amazing things was that one day I had returned, my wife and I we had returned from one of my overseas trips. And we were very badly jet lagged. And we were sleeping
and it must have been about two o'clock or something to a
fast asleep. And it was the monsoon in Hyderabad and it was raining torrential
I remember the I mean I remember the day I can't recall the date but I'm sure you can Google it. It was during the Olympics in China. the Beijing Olympics during that time period.
So it was raining dry it was like really pouring down. Torrential rain. heavy heavy rain. And the sound of the rain itself was so loud.
You're fast asleep when we heard this literally I cannot explain to you it was like
hammering on our door now our house has a doorbell. And I'm thinking two o'clock in the night.
Who is this that is hammering on the door
does not ring the doorbell, the top.
So I got up and went to the road. My wife also came along with me, she came behind me.
And when we opened the door, it was the wife of our neighbor.
And she said, Please come, please come and see.
So I went out. And what do I see? I see my neighbor
melas rata grant in your novel for those with autism. I see my neighbor, nine flat on his back.
And just one look at him.
I could see he was that.
As I asked his wife, I said What happened?
They're very nice people. Husband arrived, there are no children. And he was a regular
one at the masjid.
Very, very nice people. I said What happened? She said
he was watching the Olympics.
And it was raining very heavily. So he said to me, I will go down and his scooter was parked outside, he said I will go down and put the scooter in some kind of shelter.
So he went down. He did whatever he did put the scooters there. And then he came back.
And he said he had the motorcycle, the scooter keys in his hand. He put them on the table. And he fell flat on his back. And I could see that the keys was on the table.
We had a doctor in the same building. So I went to his house I woke him up, asked him please come and see. And he came and he said he's long gone. He said
that is how molecular mode comes.
Absolutely without warning.
I think a lot of our data for enabling me to see these things and ask Allah Subhana data to enable me to remember these so that they are a warning for me, that I
live my life in a way which is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala because that is the only thing which matters.
So, as I told you,
if I introduce myself and you introduce yourself, we will differ in many ways. But one thing which remains is which is the same for all of us is that one day, we will meet Allah subhanaw taala.
Now, what must we do to prepare for that day,
when we are certain both that it will come it will be established, and then we will be a part of it?
witnesses to it, and affected by it allows around infinite mercy, gave it into our hands to write our own future for that day.
We can be in as much grief and pay or happiness and comfort as we wish.
No Boundaries to
what must we do therefore,
if we want to ensure that we escaped the horrors of that day and be granted the safety and comfort of the shade of the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala

Roses does, we need to reflect
we need to seriously reflect
and ask ourselves these questions.
before our time comes
when the time to ask questions will be over.
We will not be asked to even give answers. Our answers will be given to us in a written form.
The written form will come from the answers we gave
to the witnesses by means of our speech and actions.
Rasul Allah is mentioned in Hadith narrated banners with medical Dylon
where as soon as salam said, Allah subhanaw taala will gather all the people on their day of judgment and they will say, let us request someone to intercede with us,
intercede for us with our
so that he may relieve us from this place of ours. Let me say
that they will all be gathered and we will be there. We ask Allah to save us
from the difficulty that he described. He said the sun will be close overhead
the distance of one Lance next. And people will be literally drowning in the sweat and the sweat will rise and they will be surrounded in capsules of sweat which will reflect the amount of evil they did. And he said some will have sweat up to their ankles or to their knees or to their waist. Some up to here.
May Allah subhanaw taala protectors. And he said Listen, I'm said that these conditions will be so terrible. So difficult, so hard, so harsh,
that some people will say we whole I don't care if Allah puts me into janam I don't care if Allah put me into the hellfire.
But I want Allah to change the condition. Now. We want Allah subhanaw taala to establish the work of the Day of Judgment, establish the mizar establish the scales, and they let my account be taken and let me be thrown to janome it doesn't matter I want to be relieved of the suffering, which I'm undergoing right now. And Amazon has said that they will say that because they have not seen journal.
They will say that because they don't know what they're talking about.
What conditions will be so hard. So, there is a lesson observed that we will will consult on themselves they will say let us go and find somebody and ask that person to intercede for us with a Muslim I know that so that Allah subhanaw taala can relieve us from this difficulty that we are in.
And he said, he shall and and then they will go to Malaysia and they will say you are the one
or our father other. You are the one whom Allah created with his own hands. And Allah Allah breathed into you
and ordered the angels to make such that you so please intercede for us with our
make Shabbat for us with our otherworldly Salaam will say I am not fit for this
and he will remember his sin
and he will say go to New Orleans Salah. The first
are also sent by Allah Subhana.
Allah, Allah visibie nobody's Ramadan, also, Ali Salaam. Now remember when we say a sin, you're talking in terms of
the ambia olusola, you're talking double the souls of Allah subhanaw taala there is no one greater than them.
So whatever is a sin for them
is cannot be compared with what we commit a since.
Because as the saying you didn't care who demands you are on course Eva Masekela.
And those who have special status for them to get exception is very difficult. Those with exceptional status have no exception.
Meaning that they because of their high status, they will have they will have to account for even small things, which for people like us, Alice rantala, does not care.
So even a moment of reflect.
Now there is, for example, Alice Randall I mentioned was
the two people that were actually angels in our last round that have sent 2000 Islam as a test is two men who came into his Hara where he was to pray and where he was completely secure. It was in the middle of his palace, it was on all kinds of security. But they obviously they all the security makes no difference to me to arrangers, they came and they asked us to those questions about the sheep is where my brother has one sheep, and I have my I have one sheep, my brother had 99 sheep, and he wants me to give a sheep all that old story.
And then now that a Salaam made is too far, what did you make is the father, he didn't come to visit.
But his is still far was for the fact that that time period which he had dedicated for the evangelist of Allah subhanaw taala, in that time period, obviously, his attention
shifted and moved on to what these people were saying. And of course, the other the other issue there is that he gave a ruling without listening to the other sides of the story. But other than that, also the issue of an awful lot for a very, very short time. So the I mean, obviously I'm the lamellas rantala suffers from that a lot does not hold us accountable for that kind of overload because otherwise I don't know how we are going to answer or at least those watch it I wouldn't want to have all your super bowl and you know, all the
One Day Internationals and whatnot that you watch, I'm sure I'll do.
How many of us are sitting there meaning they kind of all at the same time, a lot of space, but the point is, that when we talk about the sin, let us keep this in mind. So as I said, I'm saying No, I am not the right person for this. See, today I lost around. Anger is such and that we shall as Adam said, on that day the gela love Allah subhanho wa Taala will be such that the hammered in a rush, the the angels, the four angels who are so massive that nevison has said
the angels which support the earth are so massive that if a bird takes off from the shores of the angel and flies fast, this bird will fly for 500 years before it reaches the year lobe from year to year.
And when Allah created angels and they held the tone, they could not hold its own. It was so heavy It was so massive, and they were sinking.
Until they said and those words are inspired them to say Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Allah and then it helps. But these four who have been bearing the arch Allah Spano, tala, from the day he created it, Allah does not need anybody to bear anything for him. This is all the coordinate of Allah design system that was right that I created.
On the day of judgment, these four will not be enough for now we'll create another for for that day alone, who will hold their shovels so otherwise I will see the state today. I don't have the courage, I cannot go
and ask him for anything. So what no Elisa, he is the first messenger. Today we'll go and they will say he will ask him and they will praise Him and they will talk about his what his alarms you know, his job and his
And they will say please now make intercession verse.
No one is allowed to say no, I have no power to make intercession, I will not I am not fit for this. And he will remember his
mistake he made the sin or you know, I always hesitate to use the term sin when it comes to the Gambia olusola. But, you know, this is the word in the Hadees. So, he will remember that and you say go to Ibrahim Malaysia.
hula hoop Allah subhanho wa Taala took as a Holly. So, they will go to people who have already but Emily Sarah, and they will same thing they will go to him they will praise him they will talk about how Allah subhanaw taala favored even so on and they will say please make intercession please ask Allah subhanaw taala to relieve us from what we are undergoing now, and to save us from this difficulty and this trial,
but I will say No, I am not fit to
to intercede and he again will remember his
whatever he transgressed whatever mistake he made and he will say go to massage lab he is kalevala last time I spoke to him directly, so, they will go to massage and massage damages MD who said oh, I am not fit for this. I and he will remember his own issues. And he says go to easily said he said Islam is free from sin easily Salaam, Allah, Allah has forgiven him. And so you go and
talk to each Alisha and when they go to Israel is usually Salah means you know, I am not fit for this, even though I did not do anything people have done things in my name which I fear Allah subhanaw taala anger about that. So therefore I am not fit for this. So go to Mohammed, Allah, Allah, Allah He while he was he was alum, because Allah subhanho wa Taala has forgiven him his past and his future and reserve some said, then they will come to me and I will ask my Rob's permission, and when I see him, I will fall down into him. And in this road, he will leave me in that state of such that as long as he wishes, and then he will inspire me to say in that says the and to praise
him in words, which have not been used before by any creature that he has created. And then he will say for Mohammed, he will say raise your hand all Muhammad asked and your request will be granted and say and you're saying will be listened to and intercede and your intercession will be accepted.
This is the root bar, this is the mccobb This is the position of mahama Salalah. While he while he was abused, we ask Allah subhanaw taala
really and truly appreciate and also realize and sell them and appreciate our connection with him sallallahu sallam, so that we fulfill the the requirements of that convey of that connection, which is the fulfill very fulfilling the requirements of being an oma to Mohammed Salah salah and then Michel Salim said I will raise my head and I will glorify and praise my Arab with a wa that He will teach me and then I will intercede and Allah subhana wa tada will fix and limit for me, which is certain type of people about whom I can intercede, I remember this is one of the principle of Shabbat. One of the principles of intercession that two things to understand one is only those who
Allah subhanaw taala permits will be able to intercede not anybody who thinks that they are capable know only Allah
right? And we know does he mean it it boozy, nobody will intercede except with His permission.
Right. So, that is one very important thing to understand. And secondly, in that provision, a lot of out I will say to about whom these intercession can be done, you can intercede for 10 people of this guy. So this is what was said and he said, I will then take those people out of john and they will enter Jenna then I will come back to a lot and I will again fall in so Ensuite, and we'll do the same for the third and fourth time till no one remains in the jahannam except those whom the Koran has imprisoned, and the sub narrator acaba de la used to say at this point, those upon whom eternity has been imposed, and this is in Bukhari, and kita will recap. So this is Rasul. Allah is Allah,
Allah is Allah. And this is the day that we have been warned about. After the sisters, I asked you and I reflect and I asked you to reflect on who is this soul who is Mohamed Salah, Hanyu Salah, who is the one who will be given intercession and who we hope and pray and ask Allah, that he will intercede for us. He is the one who some now we find so difficult to follow. So think about that.
He's the one who we don't want to resemble in our appearance, our actions, our speech, our dealings or our way of life. If this is not
The case then please look in the mirror and look into your daily lives and find signs of the Sun now Mohammed Salah Salem, tell me, is it loyalty and love to do the opposite of what he used to do when he ordered us to do it, but still claim to love to God.
He told us to do something, we do the opposite and we claim loving. For example, He told the abdomen he said grow your beard and trim your mustache. What do we do? We grow big mustaches, and we shave our beards. And we say we love what we do the opposite.
He said, Well, women wear hijab, we removed the job and became law Moses and he told us to be truthful. He said, Whatever you do, do not tell lies we tell lies and we claim long Moses. He said to us Do not make rebar do not bag by do not make me mad. Do not cast aspersions on one another. Do not bear false witness. Give your brother refuge if he needs it. If he is, if you need your help and support if he needs you to stand for him, stand for him give him refuge.
Even if you are an ethnic God, if your brother needs some help break the world.
Be dutiful to your parents, serve your parents. Don't complain. When your parents within courts you think they are imposing on you don't hang up on your mother or your father.
Don't say oh, by the way, these people are too much I'm giving them so much money I'm spending so much of this and that.
Don't do that.
Be kind to your children, raise your children.
Raise your children, you have a position of parent and what Allah gave with it the Iza
only because of the responsibility that comes with it.
You did not get the job being a parent because you donated some jeans No.
You get that is because of the effort that you are supposed to put in to raise a child who will be a positive citizen of the world. Who will be a beautiful example of Bama Salallahu alaihe salam 's way of life and who will spread goodness around them wherever they might be. That is your responsibility as parents, not simply to feed them and clothe them and throw them throw them. You know toys at them and gadgets at them and so that they stop whining. No that is not your job.
That is how you you raise a baby goat or a puppy or a kitten. You make sure you get give them enough food you make sure they have shelter you make sure they're clean, you make sure they are dry. You bet them to you if they're sick, you give them some medicine.
This is not how you raise children. Children need tarbiyah children need your attention
and you can't claim but you know I was busy busy what this is your job. This is your job and you are doing something as a new CEO busy What is
this no busy.
This is what our soldiers told us.
This is what he told us this is what he taught us
that is the day about which we have been warned about that day my brother sisters Allah wanders and asked us a question he said he that is us
forethought what he came
up with way that will be higher over JIRA.
got a big al carry. Allah said when the heaven is cleft Sunnah.
When it is split apart, and when the stars have fallen and scattered and when the seas burst forth. And when the graves are turned upside down, that is the throughout their contents. And then a person will know what he has sent forward. And what he left behind. Oh man, what has made you careless concerning your Rob Rob Bickle Kareem the most generous
what has made you
other sisters we will continue inshallah. For now, let us reflect on these things. And let us ensure that we
live our lives in a way which is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala
on that day, that is the only thing which will matter.
What matters only one thing, which is how did I live my life? What decisions did I take? What did I choose to do? And what did I choose not to do?
Please think about that.
It's extremely important. Today Alhamdulillah. As
I am talking to you, there is huge turmoil happening in South Africa. Allah knows best, what the hidden agendas are and what's happening. But on the face of it at least, there is major chaos, there is destruction of property in life. There is looks like a very deliberate attempt to achieve something a lot was best May Allah protect everybody. But what makes me very happy is the conduct of South African Muslims.
So Allah May Allah bless our brothers and sisters in South Africa
that they are coming out showing the best that they can do.
And people have been sending me May Allah bless them. They have been sending me
messages, unsolicited feedback from from Twitter and so on. For example, somebody called naledi says Muslim principalities have always been always in capitals blocks have always been that of giving and positivity. As far as I know. I've been fortunate enough to witness them distributing sandwiches in tea in the morning on a daily basis in here in Durban CBD. Honestly, I have the highest respect for that religion, another person
in philomath accord fillable says, Does anyone remember the roodepoort tornado of November 1948. When people's homes were destroyed, it was the Indian people, the trader shopkeepers who stepped up and freely provided
blankets and food to those who lost everything. And here is the meaning is Indians as in both Muslim and non Muslim.
Another Chris camera Tao. He says Muslim people get used as political pawns all the time. In reality, my experience is that Muslim people are honest and generous, great to see appreciation being shown to them. Another person called Margot Ronco. She says I am from Cape Town. And this is how I always know Muslims to be like, always ready to give an assist.
Another person to be a Twitter user called proud South Africans is on point and they never complain when you ask for stuff.
Another person called Frederick cockram says where there is negative negativity around Muslim people. It's only those who are ignorant and uninformed. We know them and we know them to be the best. Another person called Josie says my Muslim friends are the kindest caring souls family oriented peaceful, calm, disciplined, hardworking, always concerned about others. Yes, they have eating rules, but I love them anyways and can be sure that they will always have food so proud of our people. I mean,
my brothers and sisters and hamdulillah the best. Dawa is the Tao of the eyes. People listen with their eyes. They don't care what you say until they see what you do. It does reflect on the Koran and let us live our lives according to the Quran, which is the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam his life was the walking talking example of the Quran in practice was Allah Allah Allah will carry while he was I remember it was allamani aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
