Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Charlemagne the third to her were Coulomb. Vida, Aquila be that in dolla, Dolla dolla Cynefin now, for Mama that

00:04:45--> 00:04:53

My dear respected beloved brothers and sisters, I ask Allah azza wa jal blessed me and you with sincerity in everything we say and everything that we do, I mean

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

when we hear the word Israel

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

Aliette stories from the Israel eel our stand as Muslims. According to rasool Allah Azza Islam is that it does not contradict with the Kitab and Sunnah. We accept it and if it does, we reject it. But we never say Karla Rasul Allah about any Israeli yet.

00:05:20--> 00:05:22

So one of those stories

00:05:25--> 00:05:30

imagine came from Benny Israel. He came to Isa, and he he Salam

00:05:34--> 00:05:42

and he requested permission to accompany him. In his travels. He Sally Sam agreed, and they started the journey.

00:05:44--> 00:05:47

When it was time to eat a salad is Salam noticed

00:05:51--> 00:05:54

that the three loaves of bread that they had

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

to eat a reduced to two.

00:05:59--> 00:06:08

So he asked the man who ate the third loaf of bread, the man said, I swear they were only two.

00:06:11--> 00:06:17

Yeah, he said he did not argue. They continued the journey. They passed by a blind man.

00:06:18--> 00:06:28

He sadly has Sadam touched his hand over the man's face. And with the permission of Allah, the man regained his vision.

00:06:30--> 00:06:45

So that friend that traveled with him, he was amazed. So he sorry, his sedan said, by the one who gave vision to this man who ate the third loaf of bread. He said,

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

I swear, there were only two.

00:06:50--> 00:07:20

They continued the journey. And they got to a river that they have to cross to get to the other side. So isa Ali salaam told told his companion, say Bismillah, they said Bismillah. And they were with the help of Allah able to walk on the water to cross to the other side of the river, a Saudi salmon they crossed by the one who gave us the ability to cross the river walking on water, who ate the third loaf of bread?

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

The man said, I swear they were only two,

00:07:25--> 00:07:39

a Saudi Salam. When he's now on the other side of the river, he gathered three piles of dirt. And he asked Allah azza wa jal to turn them into gold. And Allah subhana who did?

00:07:40--> 00:08:02

The man was baffled. And he said, Who is this gold for? A Saudi, he said, and he said, one pile for me, one pile for you. And the third pile for the man who ate the third loaf of bread. At that time, that man instantly said, I ate the third loaf of bread.

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

A Sally CERAM hearing this, know that this man is not worthy of being his companion. He's addicted to dunya.

00:08:13--> 00:08:17

So he left him and he told him take all the gold.

00:08:18--> 00:08:31

The men looking at the gold and enjoying the view. three horsemen came. They saw the man with the gold instantly without blink of an eye killed the man and they want to divide the gold among themselves.

00:08:33--> 00:08:34

Shaitan came

00:08:35--> 00:09:13

and whispered to them, one of them told the other. Let's send him to get us some food. And when he comes back, we will kill him and we will have more gold for both of us. They love the plan. The man went to get the food on his way to get the food the shaitan came and whispered to him. Why don't you kill those two people and keep all the gold for yourself. So he poisoned the food and he came back when he came back. They welcomed him by stabbing him and killing him. Now they want to celebrate all this gold they ate the food and they all died.

00:09:15--> 00:09:24

A Sally salaam came back found four dead bodies and three piles of gold on touched

00:09:25--> 00:09:27

so easily Saddam said

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

heck either

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

the family duty dunya

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

be Alia.

00:09:35--> 00:09:41

This is what the dunya does to its people.

00:09:43--> 00:09:44

My brothers and sisters

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

discussing the topic of dunya

00:09:53--> 00:09:55

is extremely essential

00:09:56--> 00:09:58

and we can't get enough of it

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


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

because we are all living in this dunya and Allah azza wa jal

00:10:08--> 00:10:09


00:10:12--> 00:10:22

taught us in the Quran, how to navigate our way in this dunya without having our heart attached to it.

00:10:25--> 00:10:26

How many

00:10:27--> 00:10:31

relationships have severed because of Estonia?

00:10:33--> 00:10:33

How many

00:10:35--> 00:10:49

countries have been invaded? Because of dunya? How many lives have been slammed? Because of dunya? How many scholars have been jailed because of dunya?

00:10:52--> 00:10:58

The Quran has countless amount of verses that are condemning

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

this dunya.

00:11:02--> 00:11:03

But these are yet

00:11:04--> 00:11:06

if they are not

00:11:07--> 00:11:08


00:11:09--> 00:11:24

properly, might confuse the reader and make him wonder how can I live in this dunya that has been harshly denounced by its owner by its maker.

00:11:28--> 00:11:31

So let's see what the owner of this dunya said about it.

00:11:33--> 00:11:40

Yeah, are you hon is in the law he has

00:11:41--> 00:11:50

further to run higher to dunya. When you run a comb below biller Hill,

00:11:52--> 00:12:09

all mankind the Promise of Allah is true. And don't let this law life seduce you and do not let the shaitan tempt you away from Allah azza wa jal. This statement is by the owner, the maker of this dunya

00:12:11--> 00:12:17

and Rasul Allah Islam gave us many analogies to show us how insignificant is this dunya.

00:12:19--> 00:12:28

Once he mentioned, and he compared the dunya when he said met dunya, fill in Miss Luma

00:12:29--> 00:12:32

or spa who fill em fill younger be Nerja.

00:12:34--> 00:12:43

He said the life of this word, in comparison to the hereafter is like a person who dips his finger in the ocean

00:12:44--> 00:12:49

and then raises it, let him see how much water comes out on his finger.

00:12:51--> 00:13:18

The comparison of the dunya to the F euro is like that water left that dampness left on the finger compared to the Acura. So our savings, our relationships, our clothing, our properties, our ambitions and everything in this dunya from mountains and towers and cities and empires and forest and gold and silver, all of that is on that drop of water

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

and the rest of the ocean

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

is the hereafter

00:13:30--> 00:13:35

those who favored the dunya over the Jana

00:13:37--> 00:13:40

are actually favoring this drop of water

00:13:41--> 00:13:42

over the ocean.

00:13:44--> 00:14:14

In another Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used through to give us an analogy. He said and he his Salatu was Salam in Amata Anabaena Adam Joy Villa mercilessly dunya we're in Kazaa when Allah Who found little fear Subhanallah he said the food of the son of Adam has been made an example of this dunya no matter how much he spice it and make it look and taste good.

00:14:15--> 00:14:18

Look, what where does it end.

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

The example of this dunya we all love to eat.

00:14:24--> 00:14:52

And there are professions dedicated to food. Sometimes we travel to places to have a nice dish, and there's nothing wrong with that. But at the end of the day, no matter how expensive is the dish that you're eating? The end of it is the bathroom. Rasulullah says tell them told us that this example is like the dunya at the end of the day, no matter how much you have when you are on your deathbed, none of that will benefit you from dunya.

00:14:53--> 00:14:54


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

what I just mentioned is a brief snapshot

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

of the generations that condemned this life

00:15:04--> 00:15:14

no stone left unturned to guard the Muslim from falling into the traps of this dunya. Now, the question is

00:15:16--> 00:15:16

what do we do?

00:15:18--> 00:15:24

We are the inhabitants of this place condemned by Allah

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

but at the same time

00:15:28--> 00:15:33

it is the door to our salvation

00:15:36--> 00:15:45

So, that does that mean I cannot have a nice house I cannot be rich. I cannot become a doctor I cannot wear nice clothing drive a nice car

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


00:15:50--> 00:15:54

Now let's look at the other side where the dunya has been praised.

00:15:55--> 00:15:58

By Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:15:59--> 00:16:14

Rasul Allah Islam said herba min aside for things will bring happiness and as we will see all these four things are dunya marriage. He said four things will bring happiness, a righteous wife

00:16:15--> 00:16:22

a spacious home a good neighbor, and the nice comfortable right.

00:16:24--> 00:16:26

All these are dunya matters.

00:16:28--> 00:16:37

And another Hadith Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in combat is sir will be the first healer fee the Stata

00:16:39--> 00:16:40

Russa file your file.

00:16:42--> 00:16:45

If the hour comes, imagine the Day of Judgment is here.

00:16:49--> 00:16:58

And you have in your hand a small plant and you were able to plant it Rasul Allah is seldom said planted

00:17:02--> 00:17:12

the hours here so, this is an exaggeration to show us that no one is going to benefit from that plant, but to tell us to be productive to be proactive in this dunya.

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


00:17:17--> 00:17:30

and also Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made many dua about dunya Allah Hamas lately dunya and Latifi Hannah and she, your Allah make my dunya fix my dunya that all my livelihood is in it.

00:17:31--> 00:17:36

Allah Huma recently them be what was Searly fee daddy, daddy cliffie It is

00:17:37--> 00:17:40

your ALLAH forgive my sins, expand my home

00:17:42--> 00:17:57

and put baraka and everything that you blessed me with. Now we have all these dyes and all these Hadith that are praising dunya so how can we reconcile between the first Hadith and these a hadith? Lend me

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

your ears and your heart?

00:18:01--> 00:18:03

The answer to this came from Ibn Rajab

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

Rahim Allah when he said,

00:18:09--> 00:18:09


00:18:10--> 00:18:14

that the condemnation is not aimed.

00:18:16--> 00:18:49

To the Nihar and Lael to the day and night is not aimed at animals and humans and oceans and mountains. It's not aimed at trees and crops. All of these are favours they are blessings from Allah azza wa jal upon the creation to enjoy the condemnation is aimed exclusively at the actions of man that occurred in this dunya because most of them bring blame worthy outcome.

00:18:54--> 00:18:57

So, how do I know

00:18:59--> 00:19:00

from which people I am?

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

What is the conclusion?

00:19:05--> 00:19:08

Take everything in your life, everything

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

and check

00:19:14--> 00:19:16

did it bring you closer to Allah?

00:19:17--> 00:19:18


00:19:19--> 00:19:23

it caused you to drift from Allah azza wa jal

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

for example,

00:19:26--> 00:19:30

since we have a lot of youth today,

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

take social media.

00:19:35--> 00:19:40

Did social media bring you closer to Allah? Did social media

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

reminded you of Salat and of DUA and of reading the Quran? Are you using social media as a platform for that? Well, then, the social media is the part of Allah is the part of dunya that Allah has praised

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


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


00:20:08--> 00:20:09

on the other hand

00:20:12--> 00:20:21

if social media have dented your relationship with Allah azza wa jal and ruined you're focusing in Salah because you are watching a lot of haram

00:20:22--> 00:21:00

and because you are wasting so much time in it, it distracted you from going to the masjid, distracting you from obeying your parents. Then this is the dunya that has been condemned from Allah azza wa jal and take everything across the board and measure it that way. Your wife, your spouse, your children, your job, your wealth, what did they do to you? Did your wealth bring you closer to Allah or you notice that the more wealth you have, the further you are from Allah azza wa jal you the more you are on Vegas, and the more you are buying and buying and buying and wasting, or did the wealth make you sponsor more orphans make you build more masajid

00:21:02--> 00:21:17

your family? Is she or is he bringing you closer to Allah? That's a favorite from Allah azza wa jal that means you are being praised that member of your family is being praised from the dunya that has been praised and put your job

00:21:18--> 00:21:20

is your job haram?

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

Do you really not care at all where you're earning your money? Is it halal or haram?

00:21:28--> 00:21:35

If it is halal income, Allahu Akbar and using that for Halal purposes, Allahu Akbar, but

00:21:36--> 00:21:42

if you are keep hoarding and holding wealth and wealth just for the sake of hoarding

00:21:43--> 00:21:45

that means you did not understand

00:21:47--> 00:21:51

the reason and the purpose of your creation.

00:21:52--> 00:21:53

My brothers and sisters

00:21:57--> 00:21:58

the formula is very simple.

00:22:02--> 00:22:03

We can use this dunya

00:22:06--> 00:22:10

to ease our way to gin or this dunya

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

could be a purpose for us.

00:22:15--> 00:22:23

To be in the Hellfire alumni John laminar law measure laminar flow Korea does tougher law structural in the hole for right.

00:22:32--> 00:22:36

Smilla salatu salam ala Mala and every year that

00:22:37--> 00:22:41

my beloved brothers and sisters, especially my younger brothers and sisters,

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

our approach to life should be balanced.

00:22:47--> 00:22:54

And we should know for a fact that religion is not the enemy of worldly pursuits.

00:22:55--> 00:23:02

Worship and righteousness are not the enemy of worldly productivity and progression.

00:23:03--> 00:23:07

How beautiful it is. To have a doctor that's a half is

00:23:08--> 00:23:11

how beautiful it is for a person

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

that runs all his dunya according to the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal before he takes a deal before he takes a job before he major at school, he checks is that major pleasing to Allah? Bismillah is that job pleasing to Allah? Bismillah?

00:23:30--> 00:23:36

If not, no matter how much it's offering, he stops because of Allah azza wa jal.

00:23:37--> 00:23:56

I don't want anybody to think that we are here to stay in the masjid and go to sleep and No, no, no. People go to extremes. People who neglect the dunya completely, completely and they say Allah has the result. This is not allowed in Islam. And then the other extreme

00:23:58--> 00:24:22

people who all they talk about is dollar dunya dunya every point of their life, every topic is about dunya. That's another extreme which is definitely condemned. And then there are the people in the middle who followed the area when I attended Santa Siva came in at dunya. Do not forget your share of the dunya to use it for the akhira

00:24:24--> 00:24:31

they are these are the people who knew that the time here is very limited Jaquan most of us here

00:24:33--> 00:24:37

whatever is left from their life is much less than what they have spent already.

00:24:40--> 00:24:50

And the wise one and the smart one was who takes advantage of every single moment to guarantee a spot in Jana, my brothers and sisters.

00:24:53--> 00:24:54

The bright

00:24:55--> 00:24:56

the bright

00:24:57--> 00:25:00

and the wakeful Muslim is the

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

One who realizes that the dunya is a mere vehicle to a destination, he must get to

00:25:11--> 00:25:19

never get attached to the vehicle, but be obsessed with the destination
