00:05:26--> 00:05:31

Abu Talib, the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:33--> 00:05:35

was on his deathbed

00:05:39--> 00:05:40

muscle loss I Salam was there

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


00:05:45--> 00:05:46

on both sides

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

of Abu Talib

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

were two of his very close friends

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

will join

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

and Abdullah

00:06:02--> 00:06:02

bin Omiya.

00:06:07--> 00:06:09

While Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:06:11--> 00:06:14

is begging his uncle to say,

00:06:15--> 00:06:23

you know Hey Lola, my uncle, please c'est la ilaha illa Allah so I can intercede

00:06:25--> 00:06:30

for you on the Day of Judgment and save you from the hellfire. My uncle, please say it.

00:06:32--> 00:06:33

And on the other side

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

his evil friends

00:06:41--> 00:06:42


00:06:44--> 00:06:45

over his ears.

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

A terrible, horrible and miletti I didn't tell him

00:06:51--> 00:06:57

you want to leave and abandon the religion of your father Abdul Muttalib

00:06:59--> 00:07:06

so from one side or Salah is seldom is telling him to say the shahada and from the other side, the friends are saying no.

00:07:07--> 00:07:09

How could you leave

00:07:10--> 00:07:11

the deen you grew up

00:07:13--> 00:07:14


00:07:18--> 00:07:19

and unfortunately,

00:07:21--> 00:07:26

Abdullah Mata lives last word about our lives. Last words, Adina Abdul Muttalib

00:07:29--> 00:07:50

I am on the dean of my father, Abdul Muttalib and he passed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam because he loves him so much and we all know that. He said, stone Pharaoh luck. I'm gonna keep making stuff out for you. I'm gonna keep begging Allah azza wa jal to forgive you.

00:07:51--> 00:08:05

And Allah azza wa jal revealed, Malka Annelle in Obi Wan Latina aminu and yesterday if you little Mushrikeen one can only call the min daddy matter.

00:08:06--> 00:08:09

And Nahum as har Bucha him

00:08:11--> 00:08:12


00:08:13--> 00:08:20

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam nor the companions with him or the believers are allowed

00:08:22--> 00:08:26

to make a stone fall to a mushrik

00:08:27--> 00:08:39

to a person who died as a non Muslim, even if they are their relatives, after they have known clearly that they are

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

from the people of the Hellfire.

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

My brothers and sisters,

00:08:46--> 00:08:47


00:08:50--> 00:08:52

we will be discussing a relationship

00:08:56--> 00:08:57

and this relationship

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

will either lead us

00:09:03--> 00:09:05

to the pits of the Hellfire

00:09:07--> 00:09:18

or it will lead us to be sitting on pulpits of nor of light around the harsh of Allah azza wa jal look at the two extremes

00:09:19--> 00:09:20


00:09:22--> 00:09:41

And I chose this topic because many of my young brothers and sisters, either they have started school or they're about to start school and they will be exposed to many new people that they have to choose who will be their companion.

00:09:43--> 00:09:53

As we have seen, the friends of Abu Talib did not just ruined his dunya they ruined his F Euro. So this is not a joke.

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

As we have seen from this example, an evil friend and

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

Even companion can lead someone to the hellfire.

00:10:05--> 00:10:14

Even though on the other side, the one who's reminding him is the best man ever created and did not benefit him.

00:10:16--> 00:10:23

Not a chef, not an imam say eidl Mursaleen is telling him c'est la ilaha illa Allah and the friends

00:10:25--> 00:10:57

let him to say the words of Cofer, and to be the last words he uttered. Or we could be from Rasulullah Salim the example he said, Al Motta have been the people who love one another and for the sake of Allah, they will be on the Day of Judgment sitting on pulpits of light around the harsh bit to whom imagine the prophets and the martyrs will look and say, Who are these people? Who are these lucky people?

00:10:58--> 00:11:12

Subhan Allah, may Allah make us all among them. Just like the Arabic proverb says, a saw a hip sir hip, a saw hip, sir hip, the companion pulls.

00:11:14--> 00:11:17

Those two guys pulled him to the hellfire.

00:11:22--> 00:11:30

Your friend will pull you either towards Allah or towards the shaitan

00:11:32--> 00:11:35

he will pull you she will pull you either

00:11:36--> 00:11:43

to the massage and to the obedience of Allah. Or to the other one. My brothers and sisters.

00:11:45--> 00:11:46

Ask anyone

00:11:48--> 00:11:51

who got addicted to alcohol, to pornography,

00:11:52--> 00:12:04

to drugs, to smoking to vaping ask him. How did you start? He will tell you it was a friend who told me to try it once.

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

It was a friend who told me you're not cool if you don't try it. And then from there it is downhill.

00:12:17--> 00:12:35

My brothers and sisters Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us in a hadith straightforward the person was on the path of his best friend. So check who is your best friend? A lawyer who? Dini Fellini.

00:12:36--> 00:12:44

You are on the path that they say in Arabic couldn't listen to Asha Akula come and tell me who are your friends? I'll tell you who you are.

00:12:46--> 00:12:58

There's no way you have company people who constantly curse constantly use those four letter words. And if it's not bothering you, then you're going to be using them yourself.

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

Otherwise you should be irritated, irritated and feeling like I don't belong here. Either you ask them to stop or you can you have to pull yourself out. If you feel that you're fitting in then there's there's a problem

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

you are

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

on the Dean on the path

00:13:24--> 00:13:28

of your best friend. So check who's your best friend.

00:13:30--> 00:13:33

My brothers and sisters on the day of judgment there will be two groups

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


00:13:43--> 00:13:48

Young woman at the bar go home Lee dialed in Adam

00:13:49--> 00:13:56

in in mooching. Akela Lauren of Helene.

00:13:57--> 00:14:11

Akela is plural of Khalil. Khalil is not just a friend saw him as a friend Saudi is a friend raffia is a friend is a meal is a friend, but Khalil is best friend.

00:14:14--> 00:14:34

What type of Allah who Ibrahima vallila Allahu Akbar What an honor for the Brahim Khalil is best friend. So Allah subhanho wa Taala saying and telling us the best friends, not your body that you just said hello wants to your best friend.

00:14:36--> 00:14:40

On the Day of Judgment will become your worst enemy.

00:14:42--> 00:14:58

He's the one. He's the one who taught me how to smoke. He's the one who took me to that bar. He's the one who led me to practice this. He's the one who taught me about the contracts with rebar. He's the one yeah, they start fighting and arguing in

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


00:15:01--> 00:15:04

Except if your best friend is lucky

00:15:06--> 00:15:14

if your best friend have Taqwa if your best friend have is a righteous person, then completely different story.

00:15:16--> 00:15:20

Completely different story that will bring us to the other group.

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

And they went to before I mentioned

00:15:25--> 00:15:28

the Hadith I want you to remember and think about this

00:15:33--> 00:15:45

you enter Jannah May Allah make us all from the people of Jana? Jana, I beg you with the best of your names for everybody who's here and everybody who's watching us and their parents and their families. Y'all Lord grant us the highest place in general.

00:15:47--> 00:15:48

So, Allah azza wa jal

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

decreed that me and you from the people of China

00:15:55--> 00:15:57

and I went in and I'm so excited

00:15:58--> 00:15:59

and I'm

00:16:00--> 00:16:07

enjoying the mansions and the rivers and the pearls and the fruits and everything in general. And then

00:16:10--> 00:16:12

where's my buddy?

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

Yeah, Allah.

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

What is my friend? He was my best friend.

00:16:21--> 00:16:22

There's no other choice.

00:16:24--> 00:16:27

There's no other choice. It's either Jana or not.

00:16:29--> 00:16:30

So the Hadith said

00:16:31--> 00:17:09

they will go to Allah. Listen carefully. The people will go to Allah and see ya Allah can we use a luna Anna? We are so Munna Anna were young MeLuna. Your mother used to pray with us. He used to be next to me and in February. He used to fast with us on Monday and Thursday. He used to go with us to the to the geneticists he used to go visit the sick Yola, they used to be always with us, but they're not here so that means you're Allah there on the other place Ya Allah, can we give us the permission? A lemon Evian? No, you have to get permission. Can I? Yeah, Allah, intercede for them and take them out from the hellfire.

00:17:11--> 00:17:15

And you will get the permission from Cuba as a surgeon. And Allah would say, go

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

and take them out from the hellfire. Now the question is

00:17:22--> 00:17:28

do I have somebody in my life right now that will check that I'm missing

00:17:32--> 00:17:35

that person that came to your mind right now.

00:17:36--> 00:17:37

Stick to that guy.

00:17:39--> 00:17:42

Love that guy. Cherish that guy.

00:17:44--> 00:17:54

The person that you that you thought of right now, when I said do you have somebody that will will get you out of the Hellfire. That guy? That is the guy that is the sister Sister.

00:17:57--> 00:18:04

But imagine all my friends are into music and clubs and this and that and Instagram and all day long. That's all they do.

00:18:06--> 00:18:09

And really looking Jahannam they're all here who's gonna ask for me?

00:18:15--> 00:18:26

Who's gonna ask for me? Who's gonna intercede for me? This is the question we can ask. Now it's too late there. It's too late. You cannot call somebody from the agenda and tell them this and remember, no, it's too late.

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

They will ask by name

00:18:33--> 00:18:36

to be taken out from the hellfire.

00:18:37--> 00:18:38

We don't want to be from the people

00:18:40--> 00:18:43

whom Allah azza wa jal mentioned in Surah Furqan. When he said

00:18:45--> 00:18:48

there will be people who would say Listen, please lend me your heart.

00:18:50--> 00:18:51

Your or your letter.

00:18:53--> 00:19:01

Allah is telling us look at the greatness and the ram of Allah Allah is telling us there will be people who say yeah, why are you

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

late and he

00:19:08--> 00:19:10

wish I did not take him as my friend.

00:19:13--> 00:19:25

Journey. I was righteous I used to be from the people of the massage and he kept on whispering and whispering and whispering till he kicked me out. I got the thicker. I was from the people of the massages and he kept he took me astray.

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

I wish I did not take him as my friend or the one of me from these people.

00:19:32--> 00:19:37

I don't want to be among these people. Allah mentioned these people they exist, they will be there.

00:19:41--> 00:19:44

What are the characteristics of a good friend? Quickly?

00:19:47--> 00:19:48

He or she?

00:19:49--> 00:19:52

Number one, they are obedient to Allah azza wa jal

00:19:53--> 00:19:58

and they stay away from what Allah has prohibited to the best of their ability.

00:20:01--> 00:20:02

When you see them

00:20:05--> 00:20:06

they remind you of Allah.

00:20:10--> 00:20:11

They rejoice

00:20:12--> 00:20:14

for your success.

00:20:15--> 00:20:18

They are saddened because you're sad.

00:20:19--> 00:20:22

They overlook your shortcomings.

00:20:24--> 00:20:26

They do not take

00:20:27--> 00:20:29

and search for a fault in you.

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

They defend you

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

in your absence.

00:20:38--> 00:20:45

They will give you 70 Excuses before they think that you had an ill intention.

00:20:48--> 00:20:52

They never remind you of the favors they have done to you.

00:20:55--> 00:21:02

They conceal your faults. They themselves are generous, kind, loving, caring, courteous.

00:21:04--> 00:21:04


00:21:06--> 00:21:18

that person that came to your mind right now. Love him, cherish him. Make sure you do everything possible to stay friends with them. My brothers and sisters,

00:21:19--> 00:21:23

friends in general effects affect

00:21:24--> 00:21:32

three things. They affect our relationship with Allah. They affect our relationship with others, and they affect our future.

00:21:34--> 00:21:42

Go to Colorado stuff a lot of stuff in the whole affair right? Please can come forward as brothers and standing in the back. Move forward please.

00:21:52--> 00:21:55

Allahu wa Salatu was Salam ala mon learn to be about

00:21:57--> 00:22:01

a man came to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:22:03--> 00:22:04

And he asked you a question.

00:22:06--> 00:22:07

He said Yes Will Allah

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

let us

00:22:11--> 00:22:12

what is the hour?

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

What is the day of judgment?

00:22:18--> 00:22:22

So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam answered the question with

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

a question.

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

This is

00:22:29--> 00:22:29


00:22:31--> 00:22:32

wisdom of Allah

00:22:33--> 00:22:34


00:22:35--> 00:22:38

What does it matter? He said, What did you prepare?

00:22:40--> 00:22:56

But does it matter if it's tomorrow or the day after 700 years? What have you prepared for it? Your Salah one is the Day of Judgment. This was a massive data we mad that tele what have you prepared for it? So the man said a lot to be honest with you, not much.

00:22:57--> 00:23:24

I don't want anybody thinks here that much of that he doesn't pray he doesn't know. Not much means he doesn't do extra. I buy that not much. But I love Allah. And I love his messenger. What does that mean? Because I love Allah. I obey Allah. And because I love the salah Salem, I obeyed Allah. So that's it. I love Allah. And I love his messenger. What did the wrestler say? So let's say

00:23:26--> 00:23:31

for in NACA ma men, that

00:23:32--> 00:23:38

you will be on the Day of Judgment with the people you love.

00:23:40--> 00:23:42

And as narrator of the Hadith, he said

00:23:45--> 00:24:04

after taking the shahada after becoming a muslim, that was the most beautiful words I ever heard from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because I love Rasul Allah and Salaam. And I love Abu Bakr and I love Allah and I begged Allah to make me among them on the Day of Judgment.

00:24:07--> 00:24:09

So my brothers and sisters

00:24:14--> 00:24:19

ponder upon this hadith and ask yourself, especially my young brothers and sisters.

00:24:21--> 00:24:22

Who do you love?

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

You love

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

Beyonce, you will be with her.

00:24:29--> 00:24:54

You love the Britney Spears you will be with her. You will have all these people who are going crazy with actors and whatever you will be with them. You will have Abu Hanifa you will be with him. You'll have the Shafi you will be with him. You love Abu Bakr, you will be with him. You will love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam you will be with them. You can fake and tell us whatever you want to hear whom you love, but you know Who do you love?

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

You know, who do you love? And this hadith is 100%

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

Psalm Bukhari and Muslim you are with whom you love.

00:25:06--> 00:25:07

Who do you love?

00:25:09--> 00:25:10

Who do you love?

00:25:15--> 00:25:21

This is the question I want every single one of us to leave today with and think and think and start

00:25:24--> 00:25:26

putting your priorities in order.

00:25:29--> 00:25:41

Check the list, this guy has to go. You're about to go back to school and you're gonna see people that you want to be their friend and the shaitana is gonna whisper look, look at these people. Look at the fun that they're having.

00:25:43--> 00:25:53

Look how many girls are surrounding them. This, these are the people you want to be with. Check, stop, ask yourself, are these people going to bring me closer to Allah?

00:25:55--> 00:26:07

Are they going to keep me away from Allah azza wa jal and that applies to everybody. In your hospital, in your clinic, in your offices, in your places of work.

00:26:09--> 00:26:18

First you are joined and say No way. We'll go to the happy hour. Then all of a sudden, slowly and it's okay. Now you are the happy guy.
