Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah should have Willem de Waal, mousseline mohammadu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam just leave and Catherine kathira mavado My dear brothers and sisters, we are looking at the lessons from song to lock man, the lessons which Allah subhanaw taala taught us

00:00:25--> 00:00:31

and in the form of the advice that Luke binary Salaam gave to his son,

00:00:32--> 00:00:36

the purpose of all of these classes lectures

00:00:37--> 00:00:43

is only one and that is to apply these lessons these learnings in our lives.

00:00:44--> 00:00:51

The purpose of these lectures is not for me to make speeches, it is not for you to listen to speeches, it is not for us to

00:00:53--> 00:01:11

use this to increase our the incidents we know increase the amount of information that we have, it is for us to implement in our lives. So that we may be able to please Allah subhanho wa Taala and so that we are able to

00:01:15--> 00:01:24

able to live a life which is beautiful in this life and which is a means of us attaining gender inshallah, when we meet a lot of nanotech

00:01:27--> 00:01:34

in and until the last class I have been talking to you about Allah subhanho wa Taala his

00:01:35--> 00:01:49

admonition to us in the form of laquan Elisa Lam giving his advice with regard to duty to the parents. And in the last class, I mentioned how Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:51--> 00:01:59

told us in the surah and this is what low quantities. He mentioned the dua that the child does.

00:02:03--> 00:02:20

For the parents, where is this? Rob beer ham Houma, Kamara biani Saavedra, he says, Oh, my rub bairstow on them your mercy, as they did bring me up when I was small. And I mentioned to you that this

00:02:21--> 00:02:47

word of rub is one of the sifat of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And one of the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. And it refers to the fact that Allah subhana wa tada takes something which is small, which is incomplete, and nurtures it and brings it to a state of perfection, and loss. rantala did that with us as human beings, from our whole

00:02:49--> 00:02:50

from the time we

00:02:51--> 00:03:19

are conceived in the wombs of our mothers, and all the different stages of the development of the embryo. And then we are born as little helpless little infants are blind and deaf who can't see you can't hear who can't understand. And gradually this grows to a point where Allah subhanaw taala brings us to a level of physical perfection. In this life where we are strong we are

00:03:20--> 00:03:35

Alhamdulillah we are we are blessed with whatever Allah has blessed us with. And in terms of spiritual perfection, Allah subhanaw taala rewards rewarded us and rewards us by giving us or other gifts us by giving us Amen.

00:03:36--> 00:03:46

Because all spiritual perfection begins and ends with the head with the image on Allah Subhana Allah Allah.

00:03:47--> 00:03:52

And then we ask Allah subhanaw taala to continue this process of

00:03:53--> 00:04:33

nurturing us and to take us to a level where he is pleased with us in this life, and that when we meet him, that he is pleased with us then and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to take us to continue this process of his little bit of nurturing until we reach insha Allah is the light Allah, and by his Rama and his spirit, we read general for those insha Allah and we are granted and blessed with a company of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam in general for those and we ask Allah to give this to us without his up without accounting.

00:04:34--> 00:04:35

nevadensis does.

00:04:37--> 00:04:38

The

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

it's the nature of parents to be merciful to children. And it's just think about that perfectly sane grown, educated people alter their entire lives, and the whole time tables and lifestyles to accommodate the needs and desires of a

00:05:00--> 00:05:28

helpless little creature, who couldn't survive a single day without constant attention. And that is the condition in which we were you are an hour when we were born. Sadly, this grows into voluntary enslavement of the parents to the whims and fancies of the child who grows up sometimes into being a tyrant who subordinates his parents, to everything he or she wants. And this is where the importance of

00:05:30--> 00:06:13

this is where the importance of good raising and good upbringing comes to the fore. Because what I am mentioning to you happens when there is a problem with upbringing, one of the biggest mistakes that parents do is they do not set boundaries, in their misplaced love of their children, as well as in as a result as well as a result of feelings of guilt. Because many parents, especially in today's kind of frenetic lifestyles, feel, and quite rightly so, they feel that they are not giving enough time to their children.

00:06:14--> 00:06:54

So the children are sent off. I mean, in in places where there are servants that are handed over to the servants, in places where there are no servants, children are put into daycare centers, and then they are then they go off to kindergarten school, and then they go off to you know, and then progressively different, higher and higher, higher and higher grades, and higher and higher and higher classes, and so on, and so forth. So this parent, throughout these, these years, the parents feel that I have really not given enough time to my children. And the solution they have is instead of time is to throw money at them. So buy them gadgets, buy them toys,

00:06:55--> 00:07:47

you know, indulge them in every possible way. Take them for holidays, and whatnot. And I am absolutely amazed. Sometimes when I see the behavior of children, there is not a single iota of gratitude in them, in them in their hearts, in their behavior, for their parents, for whom simply taking the children on a holiday to a resort means spending a very big chunk, I mean, no matter how cheap, you try to travel, spending a big chunk of hard earned money. And at the end of that when you when you hear the children, you listen to them. And I think Indian children are particularly nasty in this in this respect. You only Hear whining, and you only hear groaning and moaning and

00:07:47--> 00:08:23

complaining about how this is not good. And that is not good. Not a single out of gratitude, happiness. And, you know, not a thought to say, when my father, my mother, went to all this trouble to give me this holiday. I mean, it doesn't matter. Even if I'm not enjoying it, let me just pretend that I'm enjoying it. Even if I've got some problems with this and that, let me not talk about it. Let me say, let me look at what my parents are giving me an Al Hamdulillah these are wonderful people and, and just show the gratitude so that they feel happy, okay, I gave them something, they like it, I gave them something they like it.

00:08:25--> 00:09:02

The reason it doesn't happen is because this is something that was never inculcated in them. A gratitude was never inculcate us they wanted a toy, you buy a toy, they don't even say thank you, they don't show the gratitude that children get pocket money, not a single time with that child buy something for the father or mother, buy one Richard chocolate, I mean, that won't happen, they will not do that. You know, it doesn't even come into our hearts. I mean, somebody has to brainwash them to do that. This is a really, really sad and tragic way of living life. Alhamdulillah I also know children, who do the opposite, who who buy things for their parents, who spend time with their

00:09:02--> 00:09:16

parents who go and, and do something for the parents just for their happiness. And when I see that, I'm so happy. But a lot of the stuff that I see is the is the first set, which is the children have been,

00:09:17--> 00:09:58

have been raised to become parasites just suck them dry. Right, and this is what they do. That is what they do, and they do it very well. Now, this is where the the problem Therefore, I mean, even though I am saying I mean, I'm obviously very sympathetic with the parents, but I must say that this is what parents bring upon themselves. And it it is, it would be very useful to give it some thought and say, Well, you know, what is the alternative? And why did we do that? Did we have an alternative? Could we have raised our children differently than what we did? And the answer is, yes, of course you could have. Maybe now it's too late. But you know, at least tell somebody else maybe

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

maybe that maybe that helps.

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

And then of course, even if it's too late, it's not too late. Sometimes just put your foot down and say, you know, get out of here if you can't be.

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

If you can't be grateful if you can't be,

00:10:11--> 00:10:54

you know, if you can appreciate what I've given you, then get out of my house, I did another problem with with with a lot of parents, they don't, despite all that they will not do what they should do. Really, I seriously, I know many parents and I have advised this quite openly, when you ask me I give you advice. If you like it or don't like it, that's not my problem. But I tell them, put your foot down, tell them that you have given all of this to you. We have raised you we have suffered for you, we have spent on you. And we have done all this for you. And if this is the attitude, the attitude of entitlement, the attitude of in gratitude, the attitude of, you know, just taking things

00:10:54--> 00:11:32

for granted. And only thing we hear from you is whining and complaining, then get out of my house, right? Go take care of yourself, beg on the streets, you know, sleeping asleep asleep on a park bench, I don't care, just get out of my house. Because if you have no appreciation for this, then I have no opportunity I had no need for a child like this, throw them up, throw them on, many of them believing when their bottom hits the road, then they will understand the brain will start functioning. And they will understand and appreciate that this is what my father My mother did for me. But you know, our parents, our parents, and they don't have the backbone to do that. And then

00:11:32--> 00:11:55

I've seen the ultimate of this, I've seen parents, all parents, elderly parents, now you can't even it doesn't You don't even have the strength to kick them out. And they are reduced to a level which is pathetic, pathetic. And believe me, it's not a matter of food and food and water you give it to you give that to the dog also, this question of dignity. It's a question of self respect.

00:11:56--> 00:12:35

You know, for an elderly parent, for an elderly Father, for elderly mother to be treated worse than servants by their own children. This kills us It destroys you from inside. And if you are doing that, if you are one of those who is ill treating your parents, then understand one thing very clearly. Because what you are doing is you are deepening and deepening the pit of jahannam into which you will be thrown, believe me, you are lighting your own fire. If you are causing pain, and if you are causing suffering to your mom, into your mother and father, because of your behavior, and not talking about their behavior, I will come to that as well. Believe me, I'm not going to leave

00:12:35--> 00:12:39

anybody. We will talk about that right now. We're talking about the children, if you are

00:12:41--> 00:13:10

if you are ungrateful to them, if you don't express your gratitude, if you don't express your thankfulness to you to your parents, if you are giving them trouble, if you are ill treating them especially if they are elderly, and Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that very clearly. Allah said especially when they are elderly, don't even say off to them. Lower a wing of kindness show come down to them hunched yourself, sit at their feet, don't stand there like one big you know, six foot eight inches, I thought, No.

00:13:11--> 00:13:23

Show your show your show your humility. Remember the time those venues to to do your stuff in your nappies, and they were the people who cleaned it.

00:13:28--> 00:13:49

Really, I absolutely understand that. And sometimes when people complained to me, young people complained to me and you know, 111 time, one guy, I mean, this is a I'm sorry to use this language in this lecture, but I'm telling you that when they say my parents are giving me you know what you can fill in the blanks. So I tell them, they took it from you. So they have a right to give it to

00:13:51--> 00:13:54

the clinic they cleaned up yours. So they have a right to give it to

00:13:55--> 00:13:59

nahata level. Please understand this do not

00:14:00--> 00:14:11

write janam for yourself in your in your book of deeds, because that is what will happen. Anybody who causes pain and suffering to their parents.

00:14:14--> 00:14:29

Because of the real treatment and Islam does not differentiate, even if your parents are not Muslim, they are entitled to the best treatment from you. Especially if you are a Muslim and they are not Muslim, you must be even more kind to them.

00:14:31--> 00:14:43

Parents are entitled to the best treatment for you for no reason other than they are your parents. And it doesn't matter whether you like this or not, this is the law of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

Wherever the sisters,

00:14:50--> 00:14:56

those who do this, those who will treat their parents, you know life comes around full circle.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

And so what happens? So Allah does justice.

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

And it gives you children

00:15:02--> 00:15:13

so that you learn the cost of what you did to your parents before you reach Allah subhanaw taala. And then you pay for it in real terms.

00:15:15--> 00:15:30

Few and particularly fortunate are those whose children are willing to alter their lifestyle, their career choices, their priorities, to accommodate the need of the elderly and often ailing parents.

00:15:31--> 00:15:35

The door they get for that has no price.

00:15:36--> 00:15:48

So how do I get for the head no price narrated abou Mama, I'll be allow her. He said a man said Yasser Allah. What rights can parents demand from their children?

00:15:49--> 00:15:58

He said Allah Allah is the bride. They are or your relation with them will determine your gender and your gender.

00:16:01--> 00:16:27

The man asked, and this is in tune with the man asked Rasulullah sallam, he said jasola what rights can parents demand from their children? rasulillah salam said they are your gender or john said your relationship with them will determine your gender or your Johanna. And this is in there will be another Hadith in theory narrated by a Buddha delanco.

00:16:28--> 00:16:41

He said that he heard Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam saying a parent is the best of the gates of general. So if you wish, keep to the gate or lose it.

00:16:42--> 00:16:46

A parent is the best of the gates of gentlemen.

00:16:47--> 00:17:12

So if you wish, keep to the gate, or lose it narrated by Anna's been Malik vilano in Buhari, he was asked about the major sins and he said sallallahu Sallam rasuna Salah was asked what are the major sins and Malika Delano says that surah Salaam replied, number one,

00:17:13--> 00:18:06

to join others in worship with Allah number two, to be unbeautiful to disobey your parents. Number three, to kill a person murder. And and he didn't say kill a Muslim kill a person anybody. Number four, to give false witness which is basically to the lie, and especially in the case of a court of law. So four major sins number one is shift is to join partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala and his worship number two, to be unbeautiful to one's parents. Number three, to kill a person which is murder anybody not only Muslim, number four, to give false witness and this is in Buhari, my brothers sisters rasulillah salam is reported to have said that the parents are the two gates of

00:18:06--> 00:18:39

Jannah for the child. When one dies, one gate shuts when the other dies, the other gate also shuts, but inshallah for those who served their parents, before their death, there da da da will keep the doors of Allah Subhana Allah mercy open for them. But those who do not have good relations with their parents would do well to make amends and repair those relationships before it is too late. I asked Allah subhanaw taala

00:18:41--> 00:18:44

for his mercy, my brothers and sisters,

00:18:48--> 00:19:00

those who were unbeautiful to their parents, those who caused them pain those who you know did not did not obey them and so on and so forth. Now what if the parents are dead?

00:19:01--> 00:19:41

They came and asked me sir on this question, and so Sarah Salim said, Now, make dua for their, for their mcra make it further upon yourself everyday intelligence fall in sudo, then make dua for the forgiveness of your parents and give charity for them with the intention that Allah subhanaw taala should reward them as a result of your charity and give don't give miserly amounts, give lots give a lot of things in charity for them for your parents. Right spend because it's your Acura. It is your agenda we're talking about. There's other very

00:19:42--> 00:19:45

beautiful Of course, but very powerful and very, very,

00:19:46--> 00:19:47

in a way frightening.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

Where somewhere, there was a young Sahabi after Mr. Salim who was dying and he was in terrible pain he was in in the stage. A stage of

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

have, you know his bread was stuck in his throat? He was suffering, he was gasping. He was in pain, and he wasn't dying, nothing was happening to you, you know, so he was just suffering. So they came nosa some people came and they say also please come. This man is in is in terrible pain is not dying with this is continuing the the struggle of the last last moments of somebody's life, but also doesn't know when there, he saw the man in the state. He asked the people he said

00:20:34--> 00:21:19

is one of his parents is They Are they alive? So they said he has asthma, his mother is alive, but she doesn't live with him. She lives elsewhere. And he was not very good to her. And so you know, she's, so she doesn't live with him. So it also does. Go to the mother and tell her to forgive him. Tell her Your son is in this state. Please forgive me. So they went and they told the mother they said Your son is in this state. And please for him. The mother said sorry, I can't forgive him. He has called me too much of pain. He has called me called me too much of pain, too much of suffering. I've done with him. I don't care. Whatever happens to him, let him let it happen. I will not

00:21:19--> 00:21:25

forgive. So they came back to me so Salamis. They told him that the Surah Surah. Salaam said gather firewood,

00:21:27--> 00:22:04

gather firewood. He said make a fire, make a funeral pyre. And he said I'm going to put him in this state where he's alive on the funeral pyre, and I will burn him alive. They ran to the mother they said this is what the person is saying this is what he will do. So she came she said, You will burn my son alive. As soon as our son said, See, if you don't forgive him, Allah is going to burn him and if Allah bonds him his word been forever. So I am going to burn him here and let him die. And then I will pray to Allah Subhana Allah that Allah forgives, the woman then understood and she started crying, and she said, Yes, will I forgive him? I forgive him. Please don't burn my son.

00:22:05--> 00:22:47

This is the heart of the mother, even though that son had caused her so much of trouble and she didn't want to forgive him. But when it came to look to saying that here is the problem, is what he's saying that I'm going to burn him here. She couldn't take that she said, jasola I forgive you. Please, you please make the offer is forgiveness. And as soon as she said that, the son passed away. That pain of another of his last time. Allah subhanaw taala relieved that pain and he died. Everyone sisters, please understand parents are not parents are a huge, huge, huge blessing for us. Let us treat that blessing with thankfulness to Allah subhanaw taala that is not Ill treat that blessing

00:22:47--> 00:23:05

and definitely don't convert the blessing into a curse, because we are too engrossed in ourselves. And we are being misled by this one and that one, please understand this. parents come before anyone or anybody else. Now finally, I would like to

00:23:07--> 00:23:10

close this discussion on duty to the parents

00:23:11--> 00:23:22

with a hadith that must wake up anyone with an atom's weight of human in the hearts where it was reported by water by Abu huraira radi Allahu anhu.

00:23:23--> 00:23:40

Who said rasulillah salam ascended the member, and he said amin, amin, amin, it was asked Yasser Allah sola, salam, you attended the member and use I mean three times. I mean, I mean, I mean,

00:23:41--> 00:23:44

why did you do that? The Surah Surah Salim said

00:23:45--> 00:24:17

gibril came to me, when when I sent a member, email Islam came to me, and he said, If Ramadan comes, and a person is not forgiven, meaning a person often comes but the person does not fast, doesn't pray, doesn't seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala and so on and so forth. So he said, If Ramadan comes, and a person is not forgiven, he will enter jahannam and Allah will cast him far away. See, I mean, Surah Surah Salim said, I said I mean.

00:24:18--> 00:24:37

And then he said, Give a Salam. If both or one of a person's parents are alive, and he does not honor them and he dies, he will enter Jannah and Allah will cast him far away say, I mean, what did he say? He said a boat or one of a person's parents are alive.

00:24:38--> 00:24:42

But he does not honor them does not does not serve them.

00:24:43--> 00:24:56

He's not even talking about causing them pain, right? This is just about ignorance, ignoring them or something like that. So he says if one or both of a person's parents are alive, and this person does not honor them

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

and he dies, then he will

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

entered jahannam and Allah will cast him far away, say amin and Rosaura Samson, me

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

and then debellis ronsard Yasser Allah, if you are mentioned in a verses presence, and he does not say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he does not send blessings upon you and he dies, he will enter janam say and Allah will costume faraway, see, I mean, and also la Serra Sallam said, me,

00:25:27--> 00:25:30

everyone says to think about this, that

00:25:33--> 00:25:43

this isn't a bad, and it's the same Hades as classified by chef. And as you know, Dean avani, Rama to lie in his say here.

00:25:45--> 00:25:55

Please understand, that what is being said, Here are three things which are being said here. One relates, of course, to Ramadan, Kareem melas Mandela, we just

00:25:56--> 00:25:57

finished out of than

00:25:59--> 00:25:59

two months ago.

00:26:00--> 00:26:03

Now inshallah We look forward to,

00:26:05--> 00:26:07

in sha Allah, May Allah give us and grant us

00:26:08--> 00:26:14

the next rounds are in good health and human and you with the freedom and

00:26:15--> 00:27:05

to, to worship Him as best as we can do. And we are mirrorless mantella, remove this COVID and so on and so forth. So that we can, again, have our gatherings and the massages, the tarawih and so on and so forth. So, the three thing which are being said, one is related to one and which is if you get this blessing of Allah subhanaw taala, that we maximize it, and we get the forgiveness of Allah Subhana Allah inshallah, because of the actions that we bring before. The second thing is, and that relates to our subject here, which is the honoring of parents. Now, that is so clear, that we're sort of saying that if you if you have parents, especially if they are elderly, and whether it's one

00:27:05--> 00:27:10

of them, or both of them, and if you do not honor them, then you will be in the hellfire.

00:27:11--> 00:27:53

Right. So please understand, this is not a simple matter. It's a matter of great import. And as I said, that they say in order to there, I do say, whatever it is, even if you understand something later in life, as long as we make a step far, as long as we do Toba as long as we apologize and make amends and as long as we change our lifestyle, we change our behavior. inshallah, we can look forward to the forgiveness from Allah Subhana. Allah subhanaw taala as mercy transcends and overcomes his anger, and even if we have done something

00:27:54--> 00:28:23

wrong to begin with in our lives, because we were ignorant, we were foolish. realize what we were doing at the time has now come for us to change. So let us change let us not insist on wrong. That is the problem. The problem is insisting everybody does wrong, right, everyone does wrong. There's nobody in the world who is perfect. There's no one in the world who never committed a sin. We are all sinners, but

00:28:24--> 00:29:05

the best of them is the one who seeks forgiveness. So let us be among those who seek forgiveness. Oh Allah subhanaw taala for our sins, let us not insist on sin is Rahl Massey, to be to insist on sin. This is the reason for Sewell hakima This is the reason for a bad ending. We don't want to burden him we want to go to Allah subhanho wa Taala in a beautiful way, where we deserve and we ask and we deserve the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala where we can hope for that. How is that going to happen by us changing our lifestyle. So whatever you may have been doing with your parents.

00:29:06--> 00:29:18

If you have not done well by them if you have not done if you have not given them what is there right. The time to start doing it is right now. Not even tomorrow, right now.

00:29:19--> 00:29:59

Pick up the phone, if they are within reach, go meet them, hug them, kiss them fall at their feet, apologize to them and tell them please whatever I did, please forgive me. I do not want to go into Jannah I don't want you to see me being thrown into the Hellfire because that is what Allah will do for what I have done for you for how I have been do how I have have caused you suffering. This is what will happen to me. Please do not let that happen. Please forgive me. Go and do it right now. And as I said, if they're passed away, May Allah forgive you. Then seek forgiveness with Allah subhanaw taala give love

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

Send lots and lots of sadaqa

00:30:03--> 00:30:15

give big amounts until it hurts. Because it is if you burn in the Hellfire it'll hurt more and make lots and lots of dua for your parents for Allah subhanaw taala to forgive them.

00:30:17--> 00:31:05

Right, very important. And the last part of this as is which I also want to mention here, where rasulillah Salam devialet salaam said jasola. If If you are mentioned before a person and that person does not send Salat and Salam on you, then Allah will and the person dies in that state, where he refuses to centralize and ceremonial, Allah will throw him into the Hellfire and cast him far away See, I mean, and I said, I mean, I think about that here are three doors, which are being done by one Rasul of Allah and the other Rasul of Allah is saying, I mean, the first Rasul of Allah who is doing the DRI is the king of the angels, jubilation and the second Rasul of Allah, who is

00:31:05--> 00:31:19

saying amin is the king of everything, including the angels, the seagull marsali, the SE The, the leader of the, of the prophets and messengers, Emmanuel ambia, the vibe of the of the Namibian.

00:31:21--> 00:31:32

habibollah, the Beloved of Allah subhanho wa Taala Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying I mean, what is the power of that door

00:31:34--> 00:32:16

and as I said, the door works both ways, which is that inshallah, if we make the best effort that we can make in Ramadan, then inshallah Allah will forgive us, and this door will work in our favor, if we serve our parents, if you are kind to them, if you are good to them, if we respect them, if we listen to them, and as I told you, I will come to in the next class, I will come to the duty of the parents of the parents are also not given a free rein to say that you can say anything your to your child, you can treat your child any way you want. You can order them to do any kind of, of nonsense and Havas and May Allah protect us. This is what parents do. Parents are no they're not washed in

00:32:16--> 00:33:02

milk either. So they should also they should also wake up but right now we are looking at the duty of the children towards the parents. So, if the if if we as children, if we look after our parents, if we honor them, if we are good to them, then inshallah this Law of Demeter, Salam and divisa will work in our favor, and Allah subhanaw taala will be pleased with us and we ask Allah for his gender, and the third one is sending salatu salam wa sallam image Abdullah, he said that at least the minimum requirement is that when the name of Rasulullah comes Salah, Salah when somebody says Rasul Allah, or somebody says Mohammed, then minimum requirement is for the person who heard that is to

00:33:02--> 00:33:19

say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you don't have to shout you can say it softly. You can say it in your heart, but say it says Allah Allah Allah is minimum requirement and better than that is for us to recite, did Ruth Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala Muhammad masala Allah.

00:33:21--> 00:33:23

Allah barrigada Muhammad, Muhammad

00:33:24--> 00:33:25

Rahim Allah

00:33:27--> 00:33:42

and for anyone who thinks that this is too long to think about that, this whole thinking of ours has to change. Our minds are so corrupted, how can you say something is too long? When you are being rewarded for every letter of that which you are speaking from Allah subhanaw taala

00:33:43--> 00:33:51

the Douro brings 10 times Salam on you from Allah subhanho wa Taala geladeira when you want to complain about that

00:33:53--> 00:33:55

sometimes people ask me Show me a small one

00:33:58--> 00:34:03

small one Allah is giving you so much you're saying no, I don't want just give me this much.

00:34:04--> 00:34:05

Does it make sense

00:34:07--> 00:34:07

please.

00:34:09--> 00:34:20

So, best is that you send drew and which we say dual which is the salad and salad masala and the best of that is Garuda Rahim which I decided before which we recite in salah

00:34:22--> 00:34:23

and you can say a Lama Surya

00:34:25--> 00:34:36

wasallam or any of these are hamdulillah inshallah, there's no problem but try to do more. Try to, you know, just like we are greedy for this dunya let us be greedy for the accident.

00:34:38--> 00:34:38

Somebody sent me

00:34:40--> 00:34:59

a quote by shakeela Mola de mercado have his own law from South Africa. May Allah bless him. He said I was talking to a friend of mine who was very heavy, and he went on this diet and he lost a lot of weight and now he's looking healthy and looking good and

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

Smart. So

00:35:03--> 00:35:48

I asked him, you know, how do you do that? And what was the motivator? The man said the weighing scale was the motivator. He said every time I stood on the scale I weighed less than I weighed before and this was the motivator he said the motivator was my weight dropping away. When I set when I stood on the scale, the motivator was the my weight dropping away cinemavilla says how much of a motivator would it not be if we could see our sins dropping away? And that's why make a lot of stuff for me do do Toba make a lot of stuff or give a lot of sadaqa in the path of Allah subhanaw taala and ask Allah to forgive you let this be a motivator like that, right? We are we may we may be we

00:35:48--> 00:35:56

may we may not be fat and overweight as far as our body weight is concerned. But if our sins if Allah subhanaw taala

00:35:58--> 00:35:59

made them visible.

00:36:01--> 00:36:34

If they if we could see the weight or if Allah had put the weight of those sins the actual weight of the sin if it was if we were if Allah decreed that we feel that weight in this life, believe me, you will be smashed like a pancake. Now you will be smashed like you and I would be smashed like a can of coke under the under the 16 Wheeler and of the wheel goes in one side it will go over it. What do you think happens to that kind of coke it's smashed completely because flat.

00:36:35--> 00:36:51

That was That is what would happen to you and me if the weight of our sins was put on us in material terms in this layer, I'm not talking about jahannam and I'm not talking about punishment, adjust the weight

00:36:53--> 00:36:54

just the way

00:36:55--> 00:36:59

and you might say well how can we how is it so much to think about that?

00:37:01--> 00:37:03

Just one thing we do

00:37:05--> 00:37:08

which is being unbeautiful to parents

00:37:11--> 00:37:17

Illa Mashallah. And may Allah protect so that attracts the DA

00:37:19--> 00:37:24

of Jubilee Salam and solos or Salaam for Allah to put us in Jan?

00:37:26--> 00:37:27

What is the weight of that?

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

What is the weight of

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

chick?

00:37:39--> 00:37:45

chick Javi I'm not talking about I know you're not going to go and you know bow to an idol or or or make some sense that whether it

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

be witches, Ria

00:37:49--> 00:37:49

showing off

00:37:51--> 00:37:53

trying to do something to please people.

00:37:55--> 00:37:57

If the weight of that sin is put on us, what do you think will ever

00:37:58--> 00:37:59

because

00:38:00--> 00:38:03

if Allah does not forgive, that is enough to take us into the hellfire.

00:38:05--> 00:38:06

We ask Allah for his forgiveness.

00:38:07--> 00:38:24

What is the weight of that? If Allah subhana wa Taala materialized our sins and converted them in into things with weight according to the magnitude of that sin. And if you put that weight on us

00:38:27--> 00:38:33

believe it forget about standing. I mean, we would be smashed flat, like a trucker turn over us.

00:38:38--> 00:38:41

My brother sisters, that is wake up

00:38:43--> 00:38:44

and let us change our lives.

00:38:45--> 00:38:55

So voila, this COVID is such a blessing because it continuously reminds us of the fact that one day we will meet Allah

00:38:56--> 00:39:01

as I keep saying all the time whether it's COVID or no COVID one day we are going to meet Allah

00:39:04--> 00:39:05

and when is that day

00:39:06--> 00:39:15

Sora Salim said don't even imagine when you are saying your Salah that you said a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah do not have the

00:39:16--> 00:39:24

Don't be certain that you will be able to complete this action by saying salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah on the left shoulder.

00:39:26--> 00:39:27

Not even that much.

00:39:28--> 00:39:30

So when can I die right now.

00:39:33--> 00:39:42

And I happen to live I die right now. I got no problem, because then I will be resurrected inshallah, in the state I die, which is reminding you about Allah subhanaw taala. Very nice.

00:39:43--> 00:39:48

But if I don't die in that state, if I die in a state where I'm disobeying Allah subhanaw taala. Now what happens?

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

Then I will be resurrected in that seat in front of the whole world, disobeying Allah subhanaw taala. how utterly shameful is that I'm not even talking about the punishment. I'm talking about ours.

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

terribly shameful is that if I was being rude to my father or mother I'll and I die in that state and that's how I will resurrect

00:40:11--> 00:40:46

my brothers sisters please understand this, let us wake up before we are woken up. ask Allah to be pleased with you and to protect you from yourself first before anyone else and ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect you from all evil. ask Allah to protect you from the threat of your national and from the threat of shaden ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable you to live your life in a way where he is pleased with you. And I asked him never to be displeased with you. Or Salalah Alanna will carry while and he was when we Rama Tikka Amara humane 100 reliable alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
