Hello, I'm hungry layerable alameen wa salatu salam ala mousseline, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Steven Catherine coffee Rama Babu. My dear brothers and sisters, the
we are in our session on the lessons from zero to look man.
The beauty of good advice is that it is simple, easy to recall and concise.
What better advice than that which Allah subhanaw taala himself mentioned in his book,
The entire advice of Johann Alayhi Salam is to be collected in one word, one single word.
And this would be accountability
where Manila Salaam said I will be leaving a shirt on the regime. Yeah When a year in in the coup mithali 30 min hardily but cone v Sahara in our office Amati oval or D. Yeah, t be hella. In Allaha Latif on bill.
Maher Elisa Lam said which means and I lost around that I mentioned this, all my son, if it is anything, if it be anything equal to a grain of mustard seed,
though it be inside or rock or anywhere in the heavens or in the earth. lots are handled, Allah will bring it forth.
Verily, Allah subhanho wa Taala is subtle in bringing out that grain or anything and well aware of its place.
There is no hiding place, from Allah subhanaw taala if anyone wants to look for it,
there is nowhere that you can run to escape from the attention of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Obviously, may Allah make us among those who love Him.
And we don't want to escape from Allah. It's not a question of being able to do it or not. It's a question of the focus. Am I somebody who's running away from Allah? Or am I somebody who's running towards Allah.
This is the difference between the men and the non moment, the moment and the non moment. The person who is not a moving person who is a person who is a
believer, he doesn't want to see Allah. He does not want to meet a lot of Hamilton. That won't change anything. He will say me tell us one, because there's nowhere to go. Allah Subhana Allah knows everything Allah subhanaw taala knows what is where and how. Allah subhanaw taala knows how much Allah knows where it will stay. Allah Subhana Allah knows every single thing. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will bring it forth Allah subhanaw taala will hold us accountable.
And so the
believer on the other hand is somebody who loves that. Who wants that? He wants to meet a loss of hundreds that he's not trying to escape from America. No, no, no he doesn't want he was does not want to escape from a lesser hunter he wants to meet
your Angela all Yamanaka. These are the people who they love, they look forward to the waiting for the day of judgment, they waiting for the meeting with a loss of handle. They look forward to that they are people who love Allah subhanho wa Taala and if you love somebody, you want to meet them. So the whole life their whole life is spent and May Allah make us among those, the whole life is spent in trying to please Allah subhanaw taala
so when the person meets Allah Subhana Allah is looking forward to an expression of happiness from Allah Subhana Allah. He's not running from the Wizard of Oz, why Allah This is what I want. I mean, this is why I spent my whole life trying to please my Rob gela gelato Alhamdulillah I hope mine I was pleased with me and I am waiting to meet it.
But on the other hand, the other side, as I said, they want to run away. I will look man is what I was saying in this particular Ayah which Allah told us that and see the example is giving is a mustard seed very, very, very small. Right, the smallest thing that you can imagine, apart from
you're not talking about microscopic and whatnot and the same thing applies to them also but here is something which is easy to understand, you know what is a mustard seed you would have seen it here it is say even if this
Can I imagine that if I take a mustard seed, I throw it as it will find it you can find.
take that same mustard seeds, you know, and if there's some way of putting it inside the rock, and then he was filling a rock somewhere and falls, you know, with, along with another million rocks
doesn't matter, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows where it is, and he will gather it.
When we die, whether we are buried, we ask Allah subhanaw taala for a burial with dignity and according to the
according to the
beautiful system of Islam, where our brothers and sisters will meet will pray for us and make dua for us and so on. We ask Allah for this inshallah. But even if that doesn't happen, right, if somebody falls into the sea, and is torn apart and eaten up by sharks, so this person is these pieces of em are in, you know, 500 fishes, or if a person is atomized in an atomic explosion, or a person, whatever may be the case, right?
There's nothing left or the person
or a person is burned, you know, cremated or whatever, and the the ashes are blown on the winds. If the ashes are thrown into the sea, like well, Allah subhanaw taala will get him back. And nothing hunter will find. Allah subhanaw taala will recreate the sorceress Aaron told us in this beautiful Hadith, he said there was a man
who was a he was an evil man he was he did all kinds of, you know, bad things. And among the things he did was that he used to dig up graves and steal from there. And if he didn't find anything, you're still the cuff on the cloth of the, in which the person was buried the shroud, and so on and so forth. So Allah knows best what all he did, but this man when he was close to his death, and he realized that he's dying, he called his sons, he had three or four sons, he called them and he said, I want you to square that you will do what I tell you to do.
So here's the father, masking the sons to swear an oath that they will follow and carry out instructions.
So they said sure, of course, absolutely, we will do that. So he said, my instructions are that after I die, I should be burnt. And my ashes should be taken to a high mountain in a high wind and they should be thrown away. So the ashes are gone in the wind, they are dispersed all over the land.
Not the sandstone, this is a very strange, you know, and a very strange and a very bad kind of
So they said to him, then and this is a manual Muslim. So this, the son said to him to the Father, please, you know, change your mind, you know, do something else. And don't hold us. Don't tell us to do this. Don't hold us accountable for this. We promised you what we didn't know what you were going to say. But now that you say this, you know we want to use us permission to take back our promise and honor normally just do that. He says this is what you promised to do. This is what you have bound given you know, I put you on earth and you cannot go against my dying wishes.
Anyway, the man died and the sons very reluctantly they had to do this. So they did it. But they've been driven they took the ashes to the top of a mountain and they
throw them into the high wind and the ashes are all dispersed everywhere.
As soon as Rossum said on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will resolve this matter. The fact that he was burned and his ashes were all over the place makes no difference. Allah created him first from nothing. So to recreate him is not difficult.
So Allah subhanaw taala
will be collected will call him back. And then a lot of our data was asked you and of course Allah subhanaw taala knows the answers even before he asked but this is to establish the the 100 the argument in favor of the slaver against him.
So Allah will ask one Why did you give this Why did you make this strange? Why did you tell your children to burn you and introduce was the ashes a monster Dr. Bala me, I am a sinner. I'm a very bad sinner. I realized that my whole life I spent in sitting in doing all kinds of bad things. And I was afraid of you I was afraid that you are going to give me other he said I know I deserve to be punished. He said, I know I deserve to be punished. I know I deserve to be thrown into the Hellfire and I and I was afraid that you will do this. So I was trying to escape from you from your anger. I don't want to displease you, but this is what has happened. I know this is how I live my life. So I
was trying to escape and so I said to my son's do this lava ashes away because I thought well, you know I've gone NO YOU ARE YOU WILL NOT resurrect me and so I will not be I will not be punished. So I did that because
I feel your anger. Allah subhanaw taala says to the man
who feared the anger of Europe, so therefore Allah subhanaw taala says that I will forgive you go into Ghana.
This is the
this is the mercy of Allah Subhana
Allah sisters the essence of Islam was I told you, if all the advice of luck Monalisa lamb could be condensed into one word, or if the essence of Islam is returned me what is the spirit of Islam? What is all these things stand for? What is it that one word is again I can't do
it is again
it is again the awareness and the understanding that we are going to stand before Allah subhanaw taala
right, this is the the beauty of simplicity.
Somebody asked me on twitter somebody forwards me she has a copy
of a lot his tweets and one of the tweets that they forwarded
and this is not only yes this is all I have said this and we have heard this many many times I will repeating it so that I remind myself and remind you as well so they asked him what is the best way to get crucial in Salah what's the best way to make salah and he said this he said what he said which is he said that pray as if this is your last prayer
pray as if this is your last prayer and it will be for the person who's praying one prayer will be his last breath.
I still remember I was in my mother's in Hyderabad and
one Ramadan usually know that I you know, every couple of days I speak for five minutes or so, between the fourth salah and tarawih Just a quick reminder or maybe some ions which are going to be decided that day in therapy. So a little bit about that something, whatever comes to comes into the heart.
So what I what struck me that day, was that in the masjid in our Masjid in Hyderabad, the first row face if you are facing the Imam or right at the end on the right side of the first room is where
one of my father's friends and one of my own dearest friends, Marina De Anza uncle used to sit
right he used to sit, I would, I would I would be next to him. So this is this is how we used to and he would he literally treated me like a Santa I was like a son to him anyway. So he used to treat me like a son and you know, every time he would see see the masjid he would see you know everything happening there he was he was very happy. And he used to tell me to hire a bar at the
is to see if your father was alive he would have been very happy. So it so happened that that Ramadan just before that Dan Marino had passed away and that spot was like an empty spot for me. So I looked there and I saw the spot somebody was there but I'm seeing that you know for me that spot was like the place where I usually saw him so I missed him there and I said I said to the to our people I was sharing my thoughts from my heart I said to them you know
think about all the people who passed away and we're talking only about our must it And it so happened they were two or three other Muslims so I said that think about all our brothers and sisters who passed away between last Ramadan and dishonor
think about the
last hour that when they were with us did they know that that Ramadan was going to be their last
did they know that now obviously then you know that that's hardly a question that even needs to be asked. But I said did they know that that Ramadan which they were with us here was going to be the last did they know that they are not going to see one other another Ramadan? No they didn't know that.
So I said Do I know whether this Ramadan is my last? Do you know whether this Ramadan is your last? Because Al Hamdulillah one Ramadan will be our last
whether it is this one,
whether it's the one that went which means is gone already.
This one meaning we are in Ramadan, and this is my last Ramadan or maybe the one that is coming that is going to be my last semester and I'm going to die just after that or inshallah, in that
So what must I do? So I said to them, did they know that law that Ramadan was going to be their last? So we will say no, of course I didn't know that. I said if they had known
if they had known for certain if Allah subhanaw taala had sent them information to say, this is your last honor. Now, if they had known what would they have done? What would they have done and what would they have done differently from whatever they did?
Nelson Mandela forgive all of them Allah forgives specially murdered and Uncle Ron de la la mela Phyllis cover with no malice martela him and his wife mela filled their horn with no malice Renata raised their agenda their agenda gives them gunmetal for those ladies up
but my point is that if they had known
whoever died after last Ramadan
if they had known that last longer than was going to be their last one what would they have done differently from whatever they did?
So maybe there are some people there who say well you know i don't think I would have done anything differently because I did everything that I could do
you know, I wanted to do or I should have the law I am content
I mean this is like the whole the the statement of citizen I live in italiana.
Who said that
if Jenna and Johanna
are brought before my eyes, I can see them right now. Since I'm sitting here. Here is Jana here Jana, if I can see them.
He said nothing in my life will change.
There is nothing in my life that I need to change. Even if I see Jenna and Johanna right here in front of me.
That's a big statement. It suits somebody like southern Alabama mitali
it does not suit you and me.
But the point I'm making is and the point he was saying he would say that that's in a nutshell that was his intention, which is to draw our attention to this fact and say look, if you
whatever you're doing
would you do it differently if you knew that this was a last opportunity that you are going to have to do that thing?
And if the answer is yes and for most of us it is yes. Then do it at that level of excellence
so if we pray we pray for them. So you see if I if this roster is the last Salah that I ever prayed that I'm ever going to pray if I want to die now between now and
then with the quality of that solid roster was it sufficient?
Am I satisfied with that and say oh, no problem, if I die, this is good. You know, inshallah accepted by Allah cancer.
And if I can't say that, then what's my plan to change my approach to life?
these are, these are questions that we need to ask ourselves these are questions that we need to
think about very, very seriously.
as they say, you know, they say it in a different context. And that quote is you live only once
they say it in the context of you live only one so indulge yourself.
Whatever you want to do, just do it and finish it. Whether it's you know, they're not thinking halal haram they're not thinking what pleases Allah does not treat Allah. This is pure knifes.
Your personal desire.
So you're saying whatever you want to do, finish your, all your high shots, finish all your Hauer, finish all your desires, do whatever you want to do, because you're not going to come back here, right? You only live once.
islamically also is a same thing. Macedo, you're gonna come back here. You live only once. But then we don't say fulfill every desire, we say. Therefore use this time to the best of your ability to ensure that where you are going to grow from where you will not come back here. And the place you're going to go is you're not going there for 10 years. 15 years, 100 years. You're going there forever.
And that becomes the best place in the world the best place in your life.
This life of ours. Compared to the Acura is like a blink. It's like an instant.
We know this. We have been told this a million times.
Everybody, your last word Allah told us this in the Quran Rasulullah sallallahu told us this a million times the point is, if we believe it, then we must act like we believe it
is not enough to say I believe it. And then we act like, you know, there's some ferriter No,
we need to act like we believe it. And when I say we act like we believe it, what does it mean? It means that we do whatever we can to ensure that our Acura is the best that it can be.
You know, there are things in our control and the things which are not in our control.
The problem with our understanding of this life of this world, and
the accurate is the shaitan has convinced us
in the opposite of what the reality is.
The reality is that we do not have control over the life of this world in terms of what we will get, right?
In this life, Allah has written for us a lesson for us, for example, the duration of our life, how long will I live, this is predetermined, there is nothing that I can do in this life, to change that, I cannot prolong it, and I cannot bring it forward.
So that's one thing. Second thing is Allah has also written how much of wealth I might have, or resources of any kind, how much or wealth of knowledge, how much of health you know, good health, health, whatnot, everything Allah Subhana
Allah has written if I'm going to get married or not, if I don't have children or not, all of this is written for me.
My choices are given this, will you take it from halaal sources? Or will you take it from haram sources,
same thing gonna happen.
The same thing is going to happen except that the source which you take it from changes and therefore whether you get rewarded for it or you get punished for it, this will change.
as far as the ACA is concerned, Allah subhanho wa Taala gave it into our hands.
Of course, Allah knows, I'm not talking about the knowledge of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah knows Allah knowledge is perfect. Let's not go into that discussion they hear of as far as the cover is concerned. What I'm saying here is, as far as the Amal is concerned, the actions of the person are concerned a lot of I know that I give that into our hands.
Even I'm a little upset with him, when he met him during his journey, his marriage, even Emily Salam Centro de la sala
tell your people that Jenna is a beautiful place. The land is beautiful, very fertile.
And the water is sweet. And it's good.
But it's a flat plane. It's just an open bare plane.
So Jerry are people to plant their trees what trees do they want engine
tell them to plant them.
And so I asked him what his the way he said so hannula is a tree Alhamdulilah is a tree. Lyla lies a tree a lot, but is a tree.
teller do that.
And there are other things. For example, rasulillah salam said the one who does not lie, I will guarantee my palace engine, the one who does not respond in kind to somebody who is abusive or somebody who is you know, oppressive.
The person doesn't retaliate in kind.
The person behaves with dignity. wayzata Babuji Luna Allah Salam
Salam said I guarantee my Paris engine
said the one who gives up arguing even if he is right,
not talking about, you know, just pushing your point home, whether you like it or not, whether you're right or wrong, just you know, screaming and ranting No.
Is it even if you are uh, you know, you're right. You're justified. Still.
You don't argue it's okay. You had you say what you need to say I'm not saying you have to sit silently. No. You say what you need to say once.
And if the person the other person or the people there that don't accept it, leave it.
Don't insist. Don't push and don't say no, no, no, but you know, Your Honor.
I had to say what I had to say has finished
I will guarantee that person a person.
So, this is Gen ours, we need to build it, you know, plant the gardens, plant the trees, build the palaces,
give charities other Salah. So,
fast fasting has almost all of this is building for us assets, which do not decrease, which do not decline and which will be with us
in perpetuity always.
Now the problem is that, as I told you shaitan has deceived us that's his job.
And he's deceived us in his governments as the opposite of the opposite. So he makes us worry about things over which we have no control which is what will happen to me what will happen to my family, what will happen to my business, all of that what will happen Allah has already decided
I'm so worried I'm not getting married. I'm so worried I'm not getting children it is decided. If it is not written in your in your color. If Allah has not written marriage for you, you're not going to get married. If Allah has not written children, for you do as many fertility you know stuff as you want. It's not going to happen.
So stop worrying.
And what did Allah say? What must you do instead, omega de la jolla Maharaja unless you want to get out of difficulties
Meg is the far
the one who makes a lot of his day for Allah subhanho wa Taala will extract him from difficulties will solve his problems for him. If he was going to solve my problem for me, what problem can I have?
Right, what possible problem can I have? If Allah subhanho wa Taala? is the one who is solving that problem for me.
Not possibly what problem can nothing.
But if I want a lawyer to solve my problem for him for me, what must I do?
What we do not have control over it or stop worrying about it. What we do have control over share them, makes us coffee, satin makes us thoughtless about that.
We don't think about that. Just ask yourself in the last 24 hours, in your composition, novel conversation with whoever it was, whether it's your family or friends, spouse, your children, your colleagues, whoever, in the last 24 hours, how many times did you mention the ACA?
In the last 24 hours? How many times did you mention Allah? Did you mention the sources alum? How many times did you mentioned the importance of living by the Sierra by the son of Mr. Silla? How many times did you mention the importance of obeying Allah subhanaw taala? in everything we do all of these kinds of things, how many times you mentioned Jen, Johanna, all of these kinds of things. How many times did you mention this in the last 24 hours.
In fact, Allah subhanaw taala that you Allah didn't take your life because if you had taken your life in the last 24 hours, then you would have died without the mention of Allah subhanaw taala.
But Allah give us life.
So Alhamdulillah we get to talk about the greatness and glory of Allah.
That is why I do all these lectures.
Not for you. So myself.
Because if you ask me in the last 24 hours, how many times you mentioned like Intel, this is the lecture, right? So there is evidence that I'm doing hamdulillah.
Brothers, sisters, please understand this. That as far as our success and failure is concerned, there is only one criterion that is it please Allah subhanaw taala or not my life we did please Allah or not.
That's what I was saying, Look myself saying that no matter what it is,
understand is one truth. And that is that if you live your life to please Allah Subhana Allah, and Allah is pleased with you, then you are successful.
You are home and dry.
There is nothing in the world that you need to worry about.
But if the opposite happens, if you lead your life in a way where Allah is not pleased with you, then you are in trouble.
So what do you want,
you want to be in trouble, or you want to be home and try.
That's the choice. And he gives this example and he said that don't worry about the fact that you know, it's a small action
small and big, elegant design. Don't even hide it
from wanders, especially about committing what we consider to be small sins in secret.
He especially wanders against this
what is secret from Allah?
If I'm sitting in my room, and I'm watching pornography
on my computer or my phone, whatever,
is Allah seeing that or not?
So how is it possible
would be ashamed
if, as soon as it as Adam said,
if the curtain shakes, when you are doing something wrong, you are afraid.
Because some maybe somebody is watching.
But the fact that Allah Subhana, Allah geladeira was watching. There's no shame about that.
You're not ashamed.
If you are watching something wrong,
if you're doing something wrong,
and if your son or daughter, your wife, your husband, your mother or father, you know any of your any of your close
people, anywhere, close friends.
If any of them walks in, while you're doing that thing wrong, you would be devastated.
Right? You'd be ashamed. Absolutely.
But Allah subhanaw taala, your Creator, your sustainer
the provider of every conceivable need that you have, he's watching
and you have no shame about that.
You don't care about that. And he is the one before whom you are going to go
and when you go this scene of yours or whatever you were doing would be shown to you
then what is the answer that day?
My brother sisters seek forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala because he promised to forgive
inshallah He will forgive
la teclado Mira Mattila Allahu La Plata Muhammad, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. In the light of truth, Nova Jamia? Verily Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives all sins, seek forgiveness and seek forgiveness right now because we don't know how much time we have.
And I told you, one Salah will be our last one day of fasting in Ramadan, or one Ramadan will be our last.
One breath will be our last one instant one moment will be our last. And that's why most chaperones Allah said his whole life is a is an instant the entire lifespan, whole span of life is one instant. He said Let it be an instant of obedience.
I will say that God
of the law No.
He reported solos and Salama saying, if any of you performs deeds inside his solid rock that has no door and no hole, his deeds whatever they are, will come out into the public
ask a lot of save us from making our evil public.
As I mentioned in the this is the essence of the all the advice of Satan laquan Ali Salaam and the fundamental core of our belief and that's accountability. before Allah subhanho wa Taala for everything we say or do. Allah does it for me. Yeah, my name is Karla Ratan hydronium. Amaya pharmacologic Sharia, and let's run till I said whoever so whoever does good equal to the weight of an atom or small and or whatever, they will see it, yada they will see it. And whosoever does evil to the same extent, which is the weight of an atom. We'll see it.
In our today. This is perhaps easy to visualize, because our gadgets do it all the time.
We measure and record everything.
heartbeat, breathing, pulse, footsteps, location, voice action, and a lot more.
data. We preserve the records. We use these records to compare with standards and with peer groups. biometrics, help us to recognize people based on everything from finger
into retina scans to blood groups to DNA. We do carbon dating, to gauge the age of something, going back to 1000s of years. We do all of this with technology that we have today. What is what is to say about what we will be able to do going forward in the next 100 years or 1000 years, as long as Allah wants to keep the world though, though, by the though going by the way we live today, it's more likely that other some others will come and date us
at that time.
The point I want to make is that the fact that all our words and actions are recorded and can be reproduced is completely believable today, because even we can do it.
It is no longer in the hype. But it's something which we can observe. And so it is in the realm of Shahada as far as we are concerned. So how is it that we forget that Allah subhanaw taala, who created us, and our technology can do it and promised that he would do it?
Let me remind you in myself, that something about something that Allah subhanho wa Taala said that our deeds will be weighed and not counted.
So it is the quality, not the number
which is important. The quality of the deed
I was just
a man came into the masjid and he
and he prayed to regard
salah and also Salaam was sitting there he watched him and when he finished your Salah he came to the door saw salah and he said yes hola Salaam Alaikum maracuja sola. sola sola Sallam said to massage your Salah is not valid. Go back and forgive
the man when Raghu prayed to rocket and came back with zero Salaam said your Salah is invalid go pray again.
No one went for that.
He said you have not prayed I mean he says you will not pray in Silicon Valley. The Mandarin duck for a third time he prayed he came back Russia Russia, Russia Russia you have not prayed go back.
This is all I know.
This is what I know.
So then as soon as I taught him how to pray.
Right in other words, do not make sujood like a crore drinking water you know tap tap
in another Hadees Surah Surah Surah to the zaba do not steal in Salah.
Don't steal in Salah deserialize Arizona How can we steal himself he said not doing the movements completely is to steal in Salah you know he was standing like this. You're supposed to go and ruku completely like this stay there. Because we have Rico completely Stan after Rico and then only go into soup. But how many people have we seen was standing they weren't just like this guy and dark blue. Right? Some people go and record and into
all of this invalidate your Salah, all of this is stealing insulin. What does it What is all this pointing to?
Now he's not saying Cray 1000 rocket per night.
He's not saying that. He's saying improve the quality of the solar
cars after moving on. I live in a home feel solid him harsh you. Allah said the believers have succeeded. Who are they? They are those who have quality in their Salah who have kosho in their Salah who have concentration in their
quality of the Salah. He didn't say that believers are those who pray 100 Raka tonight No,
you pray 100 legato, but the point is is the quality of the Salah, which will make a difference. Now of course with with it with beautiful quality of saliva 100 I got about 100
and many of the samples allowing us to do this
they bred multiple rockets and those were top quality rockets
focused on the quality because Allah subhanaw taala will weigh the deeds not counting and He is Allah is Allah He Jalla Jalla who Allah subhanaw taala he said that we will be shown those deeds for Yama myth karate. Hi Ray Yara overshadowing Yara
sin, we will be shown that it will not simply be told about them. We will be shown the deeds and this showing will be in public except for the one who he Jelena who wants to spare this public humiliation
ask Allah subhanaw taala to spare us this public humiliation, we ask Allah not to expose ourselves to everybody. We are today Alhamdulillah we are we are people who others love who others respect and this is because of the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala has hidden and covered our sins and our mistakes and our weaknesses
around delay said if somebody praises you He is praising the cover over you he's not praising you
he's praising the cover over you
the cover that Allah subhanaw taala placed over you to hide your faults to hide your sins. The person praising you is praising that color
is not praising you so don't take the praise yourself tangle as well dancer underlay Allah you can you put the score yeah lucky discount,
right. This is just I am going to end here inshallah, we will come back to the rest of this inshallah.
In our next class, you ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to live this lives thoughtfully, to live this life thoughtfully, to live this life, understanding and knowing without any doubt that one day we have to meet Allah subhanaw taala. We ask Allah to make that meeting the best meeting of our lives, or Saldana will Karim Allah Allah He was named erotica.
salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
