is a very important reminder to me and you

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


00:01:04--> 00:01:06

our purpose

00:01:07--> 00:01:07

in this dunya

00:01:09--> 00:01:13

so I will be narrating a hadith which is in Bukhari and Muslim.

00:01:14--> 00:01:18

And before I read the Hadith Subhan Allah, I want you to

00:01:20--> 00:01:23

know, how great is our deen

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

in Islam,

00:01:30--> 00:01:32

your status, your wealth,

00:01:33--> 00:01:40

your name, your health, does not mean anything.

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

Your color,

00:01:43--> 00:01:46

your race does not mean anything.

00:01:48--> 00:01:56

The closest to Allah is the one with the most Taqwa with the most piety.

00:01:57--> 00:02:04

So, Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the narrator of the hadith is Abu Huraira or the Allah

00:02:05--> 00:02:07

and I want you to live this hadith with me.

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

But I suppose I seldom saw Bilal one day, our Beloved beloved or the Allah odd and he said,

00:02:17--> 00:02:20

you happy that tell me

00:02:21--> 00:02:28

about the most hopeful act that you have done since you accepted Islam.

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

What is the most rewarding act here Bilal

00:02:34--> 00:02:42

that you have done since you accepted Islam? What do you think it is? Because I heard the sound of your steps

00:02:45--> 00:02:50

I heard the sound of the steps of your shoes in Jana.

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

So it means you are in Jana billet what is that amulet you have done? Yeah Bilal that are you think that you have done that led you

00:03:01--> 00:03:10

to be in Jannah and before I continue Look at this. That's why I started about the greatest of this Deen Subhan Allah billon a slave.

00:03:12--> 00:03:33

The Prophet of this ummah, saw him in his dream. Allahu Akbar. Look at the how humbling is that how beautiful is that? Subhan Allah You know, there's no difference in our deen Oh, you know, this guy is a slave this guy is black. This guy is why this guy is this. No, no, no, no.

00:03:34--> 00:03:44

It's all about your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. So yeah, billion, what is that act, you think that you might have done that might or that led

00:03:46--> 00:03:48

you to be in the gender.

00:03:49--> 00:03:52

So below are the Allahu Allah and he said

00:03:53--> 00:04:02

I do not consider any act more hopeful, then that whenever I made will do

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

I performed

00:04:06--> 00:04:12

immediately to rock as for as long as was destined for me to perform.

00:04:13--> 00:04:25

Or I performed salad. As long as was destined for me to perform. They nit Subhan Allah subhanaw taala. So Bilal things

00:04:26--> 00:04:31

are beloved said that the most hopeful act I have ever done is that every time

00:04:33--> 00:04:38

I break my will do I make wudu and I pray to rock as after Allahu Akbar.

00:04:40--> 00:04:44

Allahu Akbar. My brothers and sisters Subhan Allah.

00:04:47--> 00:04:56

If I was below, or if you were below the alarm, you would say aerosol, Allah and he you know the most hopeful act.

00:04:57--> 00:04:58

I was tortured.

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

In my case,

00:05:01--> 00:05:11

I was put on boiling sand. rocks were put on top of me. And I kept on saying,

00:05:12--> 00:05:13

it must be this act.

00:05:14--> 00:05:42

He did not mention Yaroslav, Allah, my jihad, my hombre my salah on time my fasting, Yara Sula, Allah maybe because I'm the more than I am the first one in Islam. He did not mention any of that my brothers and sisters, Allahu Akbar. He said maybe because every time I make what do I perform some not?

00:05:43--> 00:05:47

That may be the reason why you aerosol, Allah, you heard my footsteps in general Allah

00:05:49--> 00:05:54

Subhan Allah, my brothers and sisters, the question that pose itself

00:05:56--> 00:05:59

to me will lie to me first, and to all of us

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

is what is the most hopeful act that me and you have done? What is it? I want every single one of us to ask themselves this question.

00:06:15--> 00:06:24

Or imagine Rasul Allah says, Allah was asking me or asking you, what is the most hopeful act that you have done? What would the answer be?

00:06:26--> 00:06:29

What would my answer and what would your answer be?

00:06:31--> 00:06:46

Is there something to mention? And don't say like, you know, my salad on time or my fasting Ramadan? Obviously, Bill, I used to do all that. And he never mentioned that these are fourth. These are obligation on every Muslim. We have to do them.

00:06:48--> 00:07:07

And if you noticed, Bilal Radi Allahu Allah mentioned the NFL mentioned an optional, very bad, it's not a must to pray to rock out for rock or whatever after we do. This is optional. If you do it, Allahu Akbar, it's great. But if you don't do it, you're not going to be punished. And he mentioned that act.

00:07:08--> 00:07:12

So what is it the most rewarding act that you have done?

00:07:15--> 00:07:21

Is it like, I have sponsored an orphan, and no one knows about it.

00:07:22--> 00:07:48

Till they finish college, I have taken a portion of my income on a monthly basis and dedicated it to poor families. I have been consistent on two records of tahajud. Every single night, I fasted the three wide days, the three middle days of the Hijri month. For years, I

00:07:51--> 00:07:55

was extremely obedient to my parents.

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

You know,

00:07:59--> 00:08:00

one time

00:08:02--> 00:08:11

a man his father became in his late 80s, and he cannot move anymore. And the father

00:08:13--> 00:08:18

always asks the son to take him to the masjid, to pray the Salawat.

00:08:19--> 00:08:36

And you could imagine that, you know, the son is very busy, but every time the father asked him to take him to the masjid, he put him on his back. And he takes him to the masjid. To pray it was like maybe three 400 feet away from his home.

00:08:38--> 00:08:39

And the father

00:08:41--> 00:08:48

has Alzheimer, he does not remember anything. He does not even remember his son. He does not know his son.

00:08:50--> 00:08:53

So he did that for six years.

00:08:54--> 00:08:56

For six years.

00:08:58--> 00:08:59

And then one time

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

one of the people of the budget, he said

00:09:03--> 00:09:15

Subhan Allah for six years you've been bringing your father to the salon on your back every slot and he has no idea who you are. You know what the sunset?

00:09:16--> 00:09:24

He said even though he does not know who am I? But I know who he is. Allahu Akbar.

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

Being good to the parents Subhan Allah. Every aspect is Amel, that opens the doors of Jana also. So what is that Amel that you can so be so happy, so proud. I cannot wait to tell Allah about it. Even though Allah has all the Aleem, right. What is that Tamil? Is it that you were striving to spread this Dean? Some of us you know what, the only thing I do is what I send the message to remind the people of Salaam and Rasulillah Salam every friday i

00:10:00--> 00:10:25

In the message to remind the people to make dua on the last hour in Joomla, I send the message or I send an email to remind the people of the importance of Fajr in congregation. What is it? Is it anything that you can be proudly saying that I used to do that all the time consistently? What is it? Is there something?

00:10:27--> 00:10:51

You know, there was a man, an old man that our chef, so in Mecca, very old man, and he saw a lot of young men around him. So he came to one of those young men and he said, Who's this guy? He said, This is our chef. He said, mashallah, how old is he? He said, he's in his 90s

00:10:52--> 00:11:05

SubhanAllah. So the student that one of the those guys told the chef, he said, you know, what's so special about this chef? He said, In our country, and he named his country. All this, you were targeted by the government.

00:11:07--> 00:11:17

And there was no permission to spread the deen. So what this chef used to do, he used to travel at night from one village to another.

00:11:18--> 00:11:44

He used to travel at night, from one village to another, he sits and he stays in that village for four or five months in a hidden place in a basement in a hidden place to teach its children the deen and then when they started getting further there, Dean, he moves to another village for the sake of Allah he did not ask for anything. Subhan Allah, his his concern about the deen

00:11:45--> 00:11:58

has concerned about the deen even though he's at that age. He was doing something. He was doing something for this Dean. He was investing for his area. What is it that me and you have done

00:11:59--> 00:12:06

that we can stand in front of Allah or if a soloist I Salam asked us this question that he asked me

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

we can be very happily saying

00:12:13--> 00:12:14

so my brothers and sisters

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


00:12:21--> 00:12:22


00:12:23--> 00:12:29

of something that we can do that only between us and Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:12:30--> 00:12:30


00:12:32--> 00:13:25

do it on a regular basis, no matter how big or how small it is. Don't always think about big stuff. Because we let did not mention big stuff. He did not mention big stuff. He mentioned those too few records that he does have to do. Because we always think about big I have to invest millions of dollars I have to build massages, I have these are all great, but the sincerity, the class, in the animal and the consistency in the animal. That is what elevates our status in the sight of Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala make our last deeds our best deeds and may Allah subhanaw taala make our last words the llama. I love you all for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah, Masha, Allah and the stuff

00:13:25--> 00:13:27
