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

Today's speaker is how David Foster a

00:00:27--> 00:00:50

little story. When I first met him back in September, I was with some homeless relief in College Park, Maryland to do a little activity. And he was he introduced me tell me that mountain 40 is going to be there as well. So I'm here with Mr. Mohammed and he points to my right he goes as much

00:00:51--> 00:00:52

as I can.

00:00:54--> 00:00:55

So when I came back,

00:00:56--> 00:01:04

basically my impression of him and what I told everyone else that most of it is his top black, they see the

00:01:07--> 00:01:08

00:01:11--> 00:01:13

What should you ever say that I'm hamedan Abdullah, what a pseudo Salah human activists you don't want to be on being a Sarah, male to Allah wa salam

00:01:39--> 00:01:45

ala rasulillah, for in the hotel in Dallas. When I shaved my back,

00:01:48--> 00:01:55

I was asked to give a brief introduction of myself, which I don't like to do. But I have to.

00:01:57--> 00:01:57

For

00:01:59--> 00:02:09

more information, you can always go to the automotive website, if you want to get some inaccurate information about me, you'll find it on the website.

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

I was born in

00:02:15--> 00:02:18

the Horn of Africa, and Ethiopia in particular,

00:02:20--> 00:02:26

my parents are from a region and that of all from a village in that region called Hodder

00:02:28--> 00:02:39

originally from Yemen, migrated there. And when the when that particular city was taken over by the Christian emperor of Ethiopia,

00:02:40--> 00:02:49

it was about time for my family to migrate. So everybody in my family actually migrated to Syria, instead of going back to Yemen, where they came from, they went to Syria.

00:02:50--> 00:03:04

And the only one left behind was my father, who actually tried to do something for that region for the Muslims in that place. That village, by the way, by the way, is 100%. Muslims,

00:03:06--> 00:03:11

small village, very tiny village with 99 minarets,

00:03:12--> 00:03:23

which reflects that they were there about 99 small masajid and four large massages called Joanna or JAMA, which is plural of Jama.

00:03:25--> 00:03:32

So my father, you know, stayed there in the capital city for a while. And then finally, it was about time when the communists took over.

00:03:33--> 00:04:02

They totally lost hope, you know, of getting back that Islamic city. So they decided to, he decided to catch up with the rest of his family. But he didn't make it all the way to Syria. He stopped in the middle and the jazz region. And I grew up in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. I made it there when I was about one year old. And that's where I grew up. I finished my high school they're finished memorizing the color and under the very famous chef known as Abdullah boss for

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

and then in 1991.

00:04:07--> 00:04:12

I came to the United States Actually, I landed on a Sunday.

00:04:13--> 00:04:17

It was May 19 1991. at JFK. Yeah.

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

And after that, you know,

00:04:26--> 00:04:34

I was planning to go for a degree in science, but the Institute of Islamic and Arabic sciences opened up in Virginia.

00:04:35--> 00:04:38

And I thought, Okay, why not do that, along with my

00:04:40--> 00:04:57

you know, along with satisfying my interest in biology, so I started the Islamic Studies Program at the Institute of Islamic and Arabic sciences in 1997. We finished with a bachelor's degree in Islamic Studies coming from University of Mohammed Bin Saud, Simon University in Riyadh.

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

19

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

In 96, right before I finished and 1997, I became the amount of the Islamic center of Laurel, Maryland

00:05:07--> 00:05:32

1998 99 I was Islamic Studies teacher at the elementary school in Raleigh, North Carolina, and then I became the assistant to the Imam there for about three years. Until 2003. When I moved to California, in particular San Diego, to become the man with Islamic center of San Diego. I came back from San Diego to Columbus, Ohio still following.

00:05:34--> 00:05:39

That's where I met Muhammad Sharif. And how Sharif offered me the opportunity to join the

00:05:41--> 00:05:47

team of the incredible chefs myself I like chef so all the yes everybody Jess,

00:05:48--> 00:06:12

should have been better. Yeah. Some of you may have met your hub, the barrier here and Mohammed Sharif himself, a team of four people who graduated from the Islamic University of Medina, all of them memorize the Quran, Mashallah, and did great work. So, I thought it was a golden opportunity for me to work with the youth. So I joined the team.

00:06:13--> 00:06:32

And I was required to actually attend a teacher's training seminar in Virginia and that's where I had the the fortunate chance to meet with brother Alberto or bill as you know, as you know him to me. So this is my

00:06:34--> 00:06:48

little introduction. In a briefly before we start in Charlotte talking about this beautiful topic of the description and gender that I called above and beyond. I would like to shout out brother Idris

00:06:49--> 00:06:52

Me

00:09:50--> 00:09:53

Me

00:11:26--> 00:11:53

In the Name of Allah the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. When the occurrence occurs, there is at its occurrence, no denial, it will bring down some and raise up others, when the earth is shaken with convulsion, and the mountains are broken down, crumbling, and become dust dispersing, and you become a three kinds than the companions of the right, what are the companions of the right, and the companions of the left? What are the companions of the left?

00:11:54--> 00:12:37

And the foreigners, the foreigners, those are the ones brought near to a lot in the Gardens of Pleasure, a large company of the former peoples, and how a few of the later peoples on thrones woven with ornaments reclining on them facing each other, there will circulate among them young boys made eternal with vessels, features and a cup of wine from a flowing spring. No headache will they have their their from, nor will they be intoxicated, and fruit of what they select, and the meat or fowl from whatever they desire. And for their for them are fair woman with large beautiful eyes, the likeness of pearls will protect it as reward for what they used to do. They will not hear their an

00:12:37--> 00:12:45

ill speech or commission of sin, only a saying, peace, peace. So the hello hello the Mr. Mr. Li Kumar from

00:12:48--> 00:12:51

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

told his companions

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

that

00:12:58--> 00:13:04

something to the effect that Allah he may have katella hemangioma, Rajan vocabulary Rama tuber

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

for yorkton Eliza Hello, Jen, that no one will fight them today defending the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam defending this great cause of spreading the message of Islam.

00:13:20--> 00:13:26

No one will fight these people who came to wipe out the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his companions

00:13:28--> 00:13:31

as they vowed no one will fight them today.

00:13:32--> 00:13:47

Except and gets killed in the process except that Allah subhanaw taala will immediately admit him to Jen, this is what the prophet said. So amongst the companions, there was one companion by the name of

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

hammer.

00:13:50--> 00:13:56

Well, the Allahu Allah, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made this statement, or may have said

00:13:57--> 00:14:07

it was like an expression of his excitement or amazement, he's like, so the promises and I looked at him and said, Yeah, I mean, Mohammed like Allah and

00:14:08--> 00:14:11

he said, What caused you or what made you you know to say that?

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

What is it? So he said,

00:14:16--> 00:14:24

Lisa Delica Illa Raja and Hakuna mean, Rasul. Allah said nothing except the wish or the hope that I'm one of the people of jinn.

00:14:25--> 00:14:33

And then he takes his hand in his into his pocket, pulls out few dates. He has some dates that he was eating.

00:14:34--> 00:14:53

And then he says to himself, and I want you to just to reflect on what he said. He said, let him back into lane and I hate to Hector Aquila had hit me right in the head. He said, If I last, if I get to live until I finish until I consume those dates, handful of dates. That is a long line.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

And then he throws them away. Like I don't have time for this and he charges again

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

The enemies, and he gets it gets killed. By the end of the day, he was one of the 14 martyrs of the day of battle, or my brother in law. And

00:15:11--> 00:15:25

now, I said to myself, what made or may say something like this? What is it that just made him look like? Oh, I can't wait to get to 10. If all I have between me and Jenna is this, man, I can't wait.

00:15:26--> 00:15:37

It is the fact that our mayor and the rest of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam, knew and understood what Jen is. And that was that it was worth dying for.

00:15:39--> 00:15:44

Their hearts were attached to them, because they knew what gender was.

00:15:45--> 00:15:57

That's why I thought maybe inshallah, if we talk about gender, then whether we get to live a long life or short life, we have a goal,

00:15:58--> 00:16:01

we have an aim, we have,

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

we have a vision of where we want to be.

00:16:07--> 00:16:38

So without a loss of habitat, it gives you a long life. Because sometimes what happens with people is when they live a long life, they kind of lose focus. And they start basically getting attached to this dunya and they forget what is waiting for them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Men have the advantage that anyone who fears the fall of the night or you know, anyone who wants to beat darkness, you know how like farmers in the old days, and the village that I told you, my father was born in how to

00:16:39--> 00:17:20

the the farms that they had were outside the city, the walls and the walls, the city actually had five gates, and the gates will get shut. After at sunset, they will close them. So anyone that goes early in the morning, after frigid, they open them. And then at night, they close them, anyone that goes out to his farm, or her farm has to come back has to make it before they close the gates. So they had to actually work as hard as possible during the daytime. And then right before, before dark, they have to come back. Otherwise they're spending the night outside the walls.

00:17:21--> 00:17:51

And believe it or not, I was like sitting there I went there to visit like for 10 days. And I was sitting in the outskirts of the village. And as I was sitting, I heard something, you know, like I heard this, like weird noise, something like running, and it was coming towards me. And it just made like a huge turn around around me behind my back and it just kept going. It's like, big, huge dark thing. I was like, I've never seen a dog that big. They're like, that's not a dog man. This hyena Like what?

00:17:54--> 00:17:57

What I mean hyenas all around the city.

00:17:58--> 00:18:03

It was huge. And when I remember watching, you know,

00:18:04--> 00:18:10

Lion King, and they seem to be very funny and very, you know, small. I was like, What is this?

00:18:12--> 00:18:29

So if you spend the night outside the city, that's who whom you're going to spend the night with. So you better make it back to the city before they close the doors, they before they shut the gates. So the promise I sent him says gives this example man have address anyone that fears

00:18:30--> 00:18:40

the fall of the night, we'll have to speed up we'll have to go home quickly. Woman Elijah, Bella, and men's and whoever does that would reach his hope.

00:18:42--> 00:19:02

And our initial Atilla agenda, the commodity that Allah subhanaw taala is offering the commodity of a loss of habitat is nothing but Gen. Allah in the Silicon Valley, but the commodity of a loss of Hana data is very, very valuable. And it's not cheap. It's very expensive, you have to pay the price for them.

00:19:04--> 00:19:26

In order to appreciate them and to know what is in general, we'll just share a few headaches that some of you know most of those ahaadeeth are available. And so in Rio de Sala hit a book, which I shall recommend that you all have at home. And not only that, but I have a recommendation inshallah, that I'm going to do. I'm going to make for the students

00:19:28--> 00:19:31

of a mother. Here's what I want you to do. This is for dorba.

00:19:32--> 00:19:48

I want each one of you to go through that chapter of this book, Volume Two. All right, it's the last chapter. Okay. Go through it, the book of forgiveness, and you will find a chapter about the description of gender. And I want you to pick your favorite

00:19:49--> 00:19:58

verse from the Quran that describes gender, the one that really really touches you the most, and you pick your favorite Hadith that describes gender

00:20:01--> 00:20:04

All right, write it down, put it on a piece of paper

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

and then hang it on your wall. If you want to blow it up, hang it on your wall and say this is

00:20:14--> 00:20:26

what I want to be in a year 234 alojado as long as I'm like gives you 1010 years, 20 years, 70 years 100 a year inshallah for some of you shala that's ultimately what I want to be.

00:20:29--> 00:20:38

And then every day or every night, you need to go on a stand before and say, What have I done today? That will get me there

00:20:39--> 00:20:54

to keep to keep yourself motivated. This is just a tip to keep yourself motivated. If you really, really if you're really into gender, you understand what gender is, you would do something like this every day, you will think to yourself before you go to bed. What have I done today that will get mutagen

00:20:56--> 00:21:09

Allah subhanaw taala gave me the opportunity to help my parents what have I done for them? to get me to gender? haven't ever? You know the man that Allah the prophet SAW Selim mentioned in the Hadith, which will inshallah talk about this particular story in the class of a HELOC.

00:21:10--> 00:21:28

The man that actually went out of his way to pleases Paris, and Allah subhanho wa Taala basically the three people who were stranded in a cave and a lot of move to the the boulder that was actually closing the opening of the cave, and one of them had to do with how he treated his parents now

00:21:37--> 00:21:38

in

00:21:45--> 00:21:50

the center, I mean, emini one is on mfem

00:21:55--> 00:21:59

motoko beanie, I am so humpy

00:22:02--> 00:22:14

mean happy Maha Jean that truly clean. And again, when whenever we come to talk about the word taqwa or anything that is derivative from taqwa, you know Mata Ki.

00:22:17--> 00:22:39

taqwa, we kind of just mentioned the word thruline. With the king, we can't have really one word, you can say the pious people you can say the righteous people, but it doesn't really do any justice to the word duck, duck, what actually means? Literally, it means to preserve, to protect, to guard yourself, against Allah.

00:22:41--> 00:22:45

And the interesting thing is you cannot guard yourself against a lot except

00:22:46--> 00:23:29

through Allah himself who can actually protect you from Allah but Allah that's why when you go to sleep, you say, Where are they becoming? Or you say a Llama Llama. When I'm in German Kayla, like there is no refuge. Right? There is no shelter from a loss of habitat except with Allah. And in the minute, one of the prayers of the prophecies that have taught us, you say, well, the becoming, I seek refuge in You from you, meaning in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala from the Wrath of Allah subhana wa Tada. So telco basically means to do anything, whatever it takes to protect yourself from the Wrath of Allah Subhana Allah, and that is to basically do what Allah subhanaw taala ordered you

00:23:29--> 00:23:48

to do and stay away from the things that Allah Subhana data told you to stay away from. So the profit or loss of habitat in the Quran says such people will be in gardens and paradise and springs of water. And it will be said to them enter it in peace and security.

00:23:49--> 00:24:04

And Allah subhanaw taala will remove from their hearts, all these like deep, you know, feelings of bitterness, hatred, it will all be removed from their hearts. Totally. I was actually one time talking talking to an auntie.

00:24:05--> 00:24:17

As I was an Imam, you know, and you know, you do a lot of counseling. Sometimes you counsel the youth, sometimes you count that you counsel young couples, sometimes you counsel, you know, older couples and so forth. So I was talking to an auntie one time and I said,

00:24:19--> 00:24:54

I said, Listen, I mean, can you just forgive uncle? You know, it's okay. You know, I know that he may not be the sweetest guy. I know that he may sometimes forget some of those important occasions, He never says anything to you. But you know, you know, you know, ultimately that if he didn't really care about you, you would have not been together until all these years, you know, and ultimately I wanted to give her some something to look forward to said ultimately, Allah subhanho data will bring you both in gender and you'll forget all this pain and all these days. She's like, Oh my god, what are you talking about? He's gonna be with me and Jen

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

and I were like,

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

wow, that

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

Did not really work. I wanted to use this verse I said no unless of our data, we'll take all of that away you all these bad memories will be wiped and she's gonna, I don't care I don't want

00:25:13--> 00:25:26

so Allah Subhana Allah says he will remove all this hatred from the hearts of the of the believers towards one another, anything any of those ELLs, any you know, silly comment that someone made and that hurts your feeling all of that will be removed

00:25:28--> 00:25:33

only beautiful and good and happy memories and moments will be only remembered engine right.

00:25:37--> 00:25:42

And they will be this brotherhood will just take its you know

00:25:43--> 00:25:56

its highest form in general, there will be no hatred whatsoever. And Allah subhanaw taala says I am assuming and also there will be no fatigue, no paid, you know you're not going to get tired, engine, tired of What?

00:25:57--> 00:25:59

Nothing. You're not going to be doing anything.

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

Well my home in habima gene and they are not going to be asked to leave they will never exit from gender or leave

00:26:10--> 00:26:19

the province there are many verses many verses that talk about gender. Allah subhanaw taala for instance, this is one of my favorite verses of sort of

00:26:21--> 00:26:25

a lot of talks about the the righteous people in an

00:26:27--> 00:26:28

Allen

00:26:29--> 00:26:39

key over on the righteous people will be and state of bliss, right. And state of happiness that go into live luxury life.

00:26:40--> 00:26:42

The life of luxury and

00:26:43--> 00:26:53

they will be sitting on their you know beds you know looking out looking at each other looking at Jenna just enjoying the scenery.

00:26:54--> 00:27:14

Daddy will feel more joy he no more name you will recognize this, you know luxury life of their living it will also show on their faces. You know the beauty of their faces this the smile that the brightness on their faces will show reflect the kind of life they're living. You spoke

00:27:15--> 00:27:57

to Peter muisc what he vaniqa penyet NFS in Bhutan avviso on the first closes by saying for such for such reward, let those who compete compete if you want to if you want to competition, you're very competitive. Go for that. Right Allah subhana wa tada in Surah a sulfide I believe limitedly have felling young men in Milan, for such that those who work work this is what you need to work for. Now a lot of us work. Sister one time told me and I'm not saying that you should not be working hard. Only those who work hard and dunia will work hard for

00:28:00--> 00:28:07

those people who just sit around like a bunch of you know young men that one time all day long. I know found sitting around doing nothing

00:28:08--> 00:28:10

and we're starting to what

00:28:11--> 00:28:23

he was his famous sick said get up, go work do something for you know the sky does not rain does not it would not shower you with with the golden silver, you have to work hard

00:28:27--> 00:28:36

limits Lehigh Valley I'm in alignment with those who want to work, let them work for a sister was telling me that one time her father purchased the house

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

and,

00:28:39--> 00:28:45

you know, lived two years paying off the house. The day he actually paid it off and it became his

00:28:47--> 00:28:55

you know, like he purchased it, he paid it off. It's his right 24 hours later he died. So, he only owned it for 24 hours.

00:28:56--> 00:29:06

Which tells you that home is really dunia is not home. In fact, one of the scholars said to his son shall kill him Allah said to his son, he said yeah, boonie

00:29:07--> 00:29:25

you know, yeah, Guney in kurata lovely, he said the globe, this entire Earth This planet is too small for a believer to be called home that let alone a continent or, or a country or or a city or a village you know, or even a small house.

00:29:26--> 00:29:43

You know, the brother and I were talking earlier about how sometimes people divide themselves and they have this subbiah you know, based on you know where they came from or based on their nationality. The chef was telling his son is too small the planet the entire planet is too small to be called home

00:29:44--> 00:29:49

for a believer because I believe it is universal. Your limit is Jen.

00:29:50--> 00:29:57

You know that's what you're aiming for. So what is it what is this planet now? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

Shall I'm going to jump and go to the story I love this story. It talks about

00:30:06--> 00:30:18

one of the people of gender that will intergender and the prophet in one Hadith he says, by law I know who is the last person to depart from hellfire. And go to Jenna. And after this man leaves Hellfire

00:30:20--> 00:30:33

the gates of Hellfire will be shut in that set, no one will leave anymore. So everybody will lose hope. And after this guy's taken and place the agenda, no one will enter in after that the gates agenda will be shut forever.

00:30:34--> 00:30:47

So when no there are different versions of this of this narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in Nila animal alpha unnati, accurately Navajo jemena well after an agenda to holan

00:30:48--> 00:30:58

is that it is a man who will come out of Hellfire Of course exhaust burned, you know, tired, you know and he will be crawling out of Hellfire

00:30:59--> 00:31:00

he will just find his way out

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

you know what I mean?

00:31:05--> 00:31:16

And Allah subhana wa tada will tell him get up and go to Jenna. So, he gets up and of course, in the process in the in the middle, there is like a river that he will, you know, walk into to get purified and all of that.

00:31:18--> 00:31:50

And the example that I gave one time I said if you have if you have you know, there are two types of trash right that we have two types of things of waste, the one that you can recycle and the one the one that you cannot recycle, right, the one that you can recycle, it will have to go through a recycling process, right? And that recycling process, you know, might involve with being purified, being burned, being in right reprocessing all of that, and the type that will not be that is not recyclable, that you cannot recycle, what do you do?

00:31:51--> 00:32:03

Yeah, you destroy it forever, right? That's it, we just be destroyed forever. And this is what will happen. There are human beings who can be recycled, who can be purified and cleansed, and they had to go and they have to go through that process,

00:32:05--> 00:32:15

on the day of judgment, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala not to be of any of those groups at all, sha Allah will, we would love to be shall amongst those who will enter agenda belatacept

00:32:16--> 00:32:29

no reckoning, no questioning straight to agenda. And Allah subhanaw taala is generous. So we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make every single one of us here today amongst those who will intergender Believe me.

00:32:31--> 00:32:55

So this man after he is purified after he serves, after he served his sentence and Hellfire, he will leave. So when his way, Allah Subhana will tell him to go to Jenna. So when he goes to jail, he will look through the gates and it looks full. So he comes back to law saying that, how I found it full. And the last time he said, we'll say to him, go back and interject.

00:32:59--> 00:33:22

I mean, unless I told us you're going through as an entertainer, why do you have to go by I mean, it tells you why he entered the hell to begin with right? People who are argumentative, who will just go into agenda, just do it. Don't you know, he goes back and it's full. Allah will say to him going into origin. So he goes back. And then he comes back to law. Third time, he says, it's

00:33:23--> 00:33:25

like, dude, you know,

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

where you were is going into it, and it will be said to him again. So finally, when he goes there,

00:33:35--> 00:33:36

to intergender.

00:33:38--> 00:34:02

You know, in one narration, it actually says that he will come back to the line say, oh, Allah, how could I intergender when everybody had taken their share, there's nothing left in general. Everybody has claimed an area, you know, you know, anywhere that I'm gonna go, it's gonna be someone's territory. And Allah subhanaw taala with will will tell him that, would you be satisfied if I give you as much as you had as much as any King had in dunya?

00:34:05--> 00:34:08

So yeah, why shouldn't I be okay, what about 10 times

00:34:09--> 00:34:10

of that?

00:34:11--> 00:34:20

And he will say, yeah, that's, that's good. That's enough. And Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will say to him, and when they ration it will say you have that much 10 times and

00:34:21--> 00:34:25

actually multiply it again by 10 times which will be 100 times.

00:34:26--> 00:34:59

So this is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, This is the least that someone is going to get an agenda. So the this, this man will say to Allah subhanaw taala Are you making fun of me? This is the process I'm saying. It says that, are you making fun of me? While you are the king you have the dominion. And Allah subhanho wa Taala, of course is not going to respond to that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, The narrator says, Cicero says, I saw the prophets. I saw them smiling until his actually his molars you know showed you know

00:35:00--> 00:35:23

That's how much he smile because of that statement made by this man. In fact, there is another narration that the prophet SAW the lies and also smiled because of what's one of the companions that the Prophet said that a man will get up in gender one day one of the people of gender will get up and he say, He will say to Allah subhanaw taala I would love to have a piece of land that I can actually cultivate in you know, take a farm,

00:35:25--> 00:35:36

a farm, why would you want that you have fruits coming to you, right? So the process would have said, and the man will say to a loss of Hannah Montana, that this is something that I that I enjoy doing in life, and I would love to do it.

00:35:38--> 00:35:45

And Allah subhanaw taala has said in the Quran will grant everyone, whatever they have asked the brother recited back at midnight,

00:35:46--> 00:35:48

you will be picking and choosing.

00:35:50--> 00:35:56

You know, one of the kids fifth fifth grader one time asked me said, am I going to have my own McDonald's agenda has like,

00:35:57--> 00:36:15

if you want to you you make alcohol tastes and you know, standards will change engine, you know, but whatever you're going to ask the bottom line is anything you will ask for, you will find engine. So one of the companions of the Prophet who was a Bedouin, he said, O Messenger of Allah, I think this guy is one of the people of unsought.

00:36:17--> 00:36:29

He said, why the fraudsters who say because he said, they are the farmers, you know, we don't care about farming and they are the farmers. So how long the process I sell him when he heard that he started to smile and left. No,

00:36:30--> 00:36:33

no, Allah subhana wa tada

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

tells us in the Hadith Quincy

00:36:39--> 00:36:54

collected by Imam Bukhari Muslim that I have prepared to lay a barrier Salim mela I know right, when other non Semite when a hotel called BP shell that I have prepared for the righteous people.

00:36:55--> 00:36:57

With no I had ever seen.

00:36:58--> 00:37:01

No ears had ever heard.

00:37:02--> 00:37:07

And no mind of a human being have ever conceived. You cannot. So no matter how much we say about it,

00:37:08--> 00:37:28

it's just an example. It's just to get you to get you to understand what we're talking about. But is it going to be exactly as as I say, it will be totally different. The feel is different. The level of excitement and the joy is different. No matter how much I describe it. Someone told me one time, if you ever go to someone who has never eaten mango,

00:37:29--> 00:37:38

right? And the brother, you can tell who the brother was from India, right? Because he said, yeah, it's the same brother that actually one time told me a very interesting

00:37:39--> 00:37:43

incident that happened with violet, who was a poet

00:37:44--> 00:37:49

was an Indian poet. He said that he loved mango so much. That one day,

00:37:50--> 00:38:12

one of one of his friends was walking with Him, they were walking the street. And he said to him, look at that donkey, there was a donkey that came in, he smelled some mango. And they just walked away. He said, look at that. Even donkeys don't eat mango. He said that. I looked at him and he said, only donkeys don't eat mango.

00:38:15--> 00:38:16

So you don't mess with these guys.

00:38:18--> 00:38:21

So he said, Imagine if someone had never seen mango before.

00:38:22--> 00:39:00

You know, never. I told the brothers the other day that when I went to this hometown, my father's hometown, the small village, we got out of the village and we were driving uphill. And we saw like a tree of mango full of mangoes. I was like, I've never seen anything like that growing up in Saudi Arabia. And yet, you see nothing but sand. You know, both sides. You see sand by the ocean by the sea, and then you see sand when you go towards Mecca. So I said what is this like mango tree like, and nobody's claiming it? It's like in the sweet? He said, they said yeah, only monkeys eat from that. You know, we have our own farms of mango. So imagine if you were to describe to someone how

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

mango looks like and how it tastes like that had you know, you will say well It tastes like What does it taste like?

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

mangoes right? You can't No matter how much you description you give them, you will never be able to really get them to know what mango is like until you let them get a taste of it. You bring the magazine, this is what mango look like taste it and then they taste it. So no matter how much I tell you about Jenna, it's not going to be the same and inshallah when you intergender you will remember this particular incident, this particular occasion, this particular scene, we will all remember it and remind each other of that bit and Allah has

00:39:40--> 00:39:45

now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the people who have agenda will eat agenda.

00:39:47--> 00:39:58

But you have to remember that, in general, you don't eat out of hunger. Because you're not going to get hungry after that first sip that you get. You will not get thirsty after that first bite. You will never get

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

hungry.

00:40:00--> 00:40:06

Okay, you're not going to get thirsty, you're not gonna get hungry, you will just eat, for the heck of it.

00:40:08--> 00:40:12

Just for the photo, just to enjoy, you know, people do this in dunya.

00:40:13--> 00:40:55

And the Prophet tells us not to do that, right? has proven to Adam, look, I imagine you're going to study the, the eating habits of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, put it off region, you know, here in dunya, you eat whenever you feel you're hungry. And whenever, as much as you need in that set, you get enough, so you can stay healthy. And you can be, you know, productive, and you can keep this level of energy energy high. So you can do as much as possible for Jenna. But in general, you just sit around and eat for the fun of it. And you will actually move from one activity to another, not because you get bored, just because of something else gets your attention.

00:40:55--> 00:41:29

Oh, I haven't, I haven't flown for a while. So Exactly. start flying around. All right, oh, I need to go and visit the province on the law. And he was saying that you go and visit the process. And what about having a cup of tea with, you know, mm over honey, just go on set with them. You know, you've spent like a couple of years with him sitting you know, sipping, you know, tea from Jen. Now, Sunday night, this is how you do things in general. You know, you don't do it because you get bored or you get tired or you get hungry or you feel the urge, you know, not just you do it, it's from one fund to another.

00:41:30--> 00:41:47

So the last sentence says that people in general will eat and drink however, they're not going to pass, you know, the rest anything, it will just come out of their you know, as they breathe, or it will come out of their skin like musk

00:41:48--> 00:42:02

acid and the rest of it. Because there is nothing, you know, the the nutritions of agenda are all good. So you're gonna, your body is going to just take it all observe it, though, there is nothing extra in it that your body has to dump, you know,

00:42:05--> 00:42:20

actually, this, you know, a group of Jews came to one of the scholars and they said, How come you Muslim say that the people agenda don't do this and this and this? And they mentioned this, how come they don't urinate? They don't. So he didn't know what to answer them with. And there was as I have no more idea.

00:42:22--> 00:42:43

They he asked the judge who later became a judge, you know, a great alum. And he was very young, that at that time, he came to them. And he said, he said uncle Yama, let me answer that said let me answer that. So I said, Okay, go ahead and ask him, he said to to the rabbi to the Jewish rabbi, he said to him, now, when you eat and drink here in life,

00:42:44--> 00:43:17

does everything that you eat and drink, does the same amount come out? He said no. He said, Where does the other amount? Where does it go? He said, Well, the body uses it burns it in it goes in the body. He said like was in general, all of it will go the body will use. That's it? Because there is nothing extra that the body will will. So he said, Okay, I can't talk to this kid. I said, Okay. Forget this argument. Basically, what he was saying is, it's not impossible. You know, logically, it's not impossible. So don't make it Don't try to be smart with a loss of data, bringing up those kind of questions.

00:43:19--> 00:43:22

Now, actually, someone told me again, that

00:43:23--> 00:43:32

Allah subhanho wa Taala, speaking about, you know, a lot of kids in having hekman, Allah Subhana, Medina will bring hekman the tongues of the weakest

00:43:34--> 00:43:38

of us sometimes, they said that there was a group of missionaries.

00:43:39--> 00:44:19

You know, again, anyone who's more familiar with this story, if I mess it up, please forgive me. But as you know, someone told me that there was a group of missionaries in the South Asian part of the Muslim world, trying to, you know, convert people into Christianity. And so one time, and they they tried for a long time, they tried for a long time. And they couldn't with this particular village that was very strong. Kids, they're all father, they, you know, they memorize the Quran, they go to madrasahs, and they memorize a prayer. So finally, one of their, one of the chief, one of those chief missionaries, like came over one of their experts, he said, I got them gather all the scholars

00:44:19--> 00:44:22

of this area or all the amounts, and I will challenge them

00:44:24--> 00:44:59

publicly. So they publicly brought everybody and they said, you know, we have a challenge for you. He said, ask me any question you want about, about what will happen, and I will give you the answer. And it will happen. As I say, you say that we don't have prophets, you say that God. The Lord does not come to us and he doesn't come into us in the Spirit, the Holy Spirit does not talk to us. I'll prove that to you today. And any question that you asked me of the future, I'll give you the answer. So come up with a question. But you only have one question and if I tell you that, such and such will happen, and it happens, you all have

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

Believe. So they said, Well, now we're publicly challenged, we got to do something about this. So they weren't like, you know, discussing it. They were doing some short on time. Okay, what should we say? What kind of questions should we ask? No, no, no, this question he might, you know, what if he gets lucky? And he answers it? Okay, let's come up with a question. As they were discussing this, a little boy go into the middle. So coming back from the madrasa, he says this, he sees this, like, huge big gathering of people. And this guy, like, you know, bragging on top of this stage, going back and forth. So out of curiosity, he goes, you know, goes through the lines and pushes everybody

00:45:33--> 00:46:05

and then he comes to the front row, and he looks to one of the analysts said, uncle, what's going on here? He's like to be quiet, be quiet. This guy's challenging. The, you know, our hola here. And, and he said, such and such and such, and they're trying to come up with a very difficult question for him to answer. He said, Well, I've got a question for him. That he can answer. He's like, be quiet, be quiet. Don't ruin it. So this guy hears him then? And he goes like, No, no, no, let him ask. You know, I'll give you a second guess. But let him ask his question. Let's just while you come up with a question, we'll have some fun with this kid. So this kid gets on the top of the state with

00:46:05--> 00:46:12

a little rock in his hand. And he says, Well, I want to ask you a question, am I gonna hit you with this rock on your head or not?

00:46:18--> 00:46:19

So that was the end of it.

00:46:35--> 00:47:09

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that, in general, there will be a room, there will be a tent or a room, just one room in general, for the believer, made out of perl 16 miles high, just one hollow Pro, they're sitting in it. And he would have, you know, members of his, you know, family around and he would be, you know, flying around inside that one room. And Jen, the prophet SAW, Selim says that there will be a tree in general, you know, the width of that tree, the width of the trunk of that tree, it will take

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

it will take 40 years for someone, you know, to actually

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

go through that, you know, the distance between between the tree, the shade, the shade of that tree, it will take a year for someone traveling on on a horse to get out of the shade of that particular tree engine. Now, someone might say, Well, those are big, huge, you know, sizes of things, you know, how are we going to enjoy that process and and said that people have agenda will enter agenda. And they will be terms of their size, how big

00:47:50--> 00:47:54

will it come on? Anyone knows how,

00:47:56--> 00:47:58

how big how large,

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

the size of the size of Adam alley setup, which was

00:48:04--> 00:48:10

66 yards, six yards, six yards store,

00:48:12--> 00:48:16

you can dunk easily. If you're that tall, you can just

00:48:18--> 00:48:21

60 now

00:48:24--> 00:48:27

the Prophet says that every Friday, every Juma

00:48:31--> 00:49:15

a wind comes and from from the northern side of Gemini just come and blow on the people agenda. And as it passes by, after it passes, all of a sudden, they will just become more beautiful. They will it will just rejuvenate them. You know, someone might wonder agenda, the Hadeeth will come later that people agenda will stay will be ever young, right? They're not going to age and gender, you're not going to get wrinkles, you're not going to get gray hair. Now you just stay as young forever. How is that going to happen? This one comes and it just, you know, showers you and just passes by, and you keep this youth and you keep this, you know health forever.

00:49:17--> 00:49:58

And then when they depart from an agenda, there's like every Friday there is there's this place of gathering that people go to. And then when they come back after this one's You know, when blows when they go back to their families to their wives. They can't even recognize them they won't recognize and they're like oh is this but in general, you will only be able to see your wife and your wife will only be able to see you. So they will know that it's not a stranger because if I could see this guy, then he must be mine. But he looks totally different. Then they will be informed and then they will tell them shala you have got it even hotter. You know you're more beautiful myself. laughter

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

You know

00:50:00--> 00:50:09

You're much more cuter, you know, where have you been? Where did you spend your day? Go there, go there very often, not only once a week but

00:50:14--> 00:50:30

there are some hobbies and I'm not going to even share with you, you will have to go and dig it yourself. You know, just go and get it yourself and read about it. There are some personal it is from Allah Subhana Allah through His Prophet, to each one of you just go and look at it and see what Allah Subhana Allah has prepared.

00:50:32--> 00:50:36

Now, I will inshallah close with this hadith.

00:50:37--> 00:50:37

Now you think,

00:50:39--> 00:50:41

of course, you know, you know, we didn't get

00:50:42--> 00:50:54

we're not going to get a chance to go through all the details. Actually, in the beginning of my notes, I have a list of things that Abraham a lot talks about, he have a beautiful he has a beautiful book called had the law

00:50:56--> 00:50:57

you know,

00:50:58--> 00:51:27

it's what entertains the souls about the, the the land of joy and happiness. That's what the book was titled, as he did on the fly. And he talks in detail about all the things in general, you know, for instance, this is for the brothers sisters, please don't find any offensive this but he says that every man and gender will have two wives at least from the people of gender. Now for the sisters, the good news is the beauty of a woman in general from the people of dunya

00:51:28--> 00:51:40

will be 70 times greater than the beauty of the hotel is that we just you know that we read about an undergrad. Just to give you an idea of when I say hotel I mean what I'm talking about hotel I mean if she was to come to dunia

00:51:41--> 00:51:48

the brightness of her face will wipe out the sun will just overcome the the brightness of the sun.

00:51:49--> 00:51:55

The sweetness of her saliva will just turn the oceans into honey.

00:51:57--> 00:52:12

It is said and I'm yet to verify shallow this so don't write write this particular but one of the brothers one time told me that he came across a generation that when the man when a man and his wife from the people agenda comes in she said that set out moloko he will go like

00:52:18--> 00:52:20

40 years later he will say why they come set

00:52:24--> 00:52:29

40 years later he was here today Kusama just trying to catch my breath.

00:52:31--> 00:52:34

stunning beauty. Now.

00:52:37--> 00:52:48

Am says that if she was to come if a woman from gender was to come to denier, she will be the talk of everybody the people will not talk about anything but but that that's it. And so it will be big fitness. Now

00:52:51--> 00:53:00

now and of course he describes he won't he goes on and describes the the reverse of gender as a loss of Hamilton's work Mohammed mentioned he hadn't heard

00:53:01--> 00:53:03

the resources we had heard

00:53:05--> 00:53:32

man really awesome, this is water that has not you know changed, that does not change. And also rivers of wine, rivers of not not a river rivers, you will have your own river of wind just flowing beneath you. And you get you get as much as you want from it. When when I said when I said the software and you know rivers of honey and rivers of Lebanon, let me enter your thumb milk that will never change states will never change.

00:53:33--> 00:53:34

Isn't it? Now,

00:53:35--> 00:53:42

you know of all of these things right? And much more than I haven't even mentioned. Now, all of this is nothing compared to what is coming right now.

00:53:44--> 00:53:46

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:53:47--> 00:53:57

that Allah subhanho wa Taala will call the people of agenda in the law has no agenda Cody and agenda. Yeah, and then Jen

00:53:58--> 00:54:06

Vokoun and a baker have been outside they will respond to a lot of big Here we come online, you have our attention, what

00:54:09--> 00:54:12

a cool he would ask them how to all the two

00:54:13--> 00:54:16

are you satisfied? Are you happy?

00:54:19--> 00:54:25

And then they will say well, Melina and Nana TL Dr. Banner, athlete and MLM talk to them and

00:54:27--> 00:54:33

they will say how should we not be happy and content and satisfied? What do you have given us what you have not given Anyone else?

00:54:36--> 00:54:42

The beauty of genda is that everyone will think that whatever he has, is better than anyone else.

00:54:44--> 00:54:52

So you'll be like satisfied with what Allah subhanaw taala has given you. You're not going to feel like oh so and so has much more than me or not.

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

Everyone will feel special.

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

So they will say how could we not be satisfied and happy when you have given us what you have now

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

Given anyone else, he says,

00:55:04--> 00:55:09

No, okay, come on, I mean valic should I not give you a graduate something much more

00:55:10--> 00:55:12

exciting and better than that?

00:55:14--> 00:55:47

And they will say, What are you saying of them, and what else could be better than this. And unless you have no data will say to them, when you are a communist whiny, for the combat who said, I will grant you, my pleasure, you will have to learn from me, I'll be satisfied, I will graduate my pleasure forever. And I will never ever be angry or unsatisfied, or you will never see any of my wrath, never, you will be guaranteed safety and security, you will know that Allah is pleased with you forever.

00:55:48--> 00:55:59

And the prophecy sort of says, and they will not be given anything better, sweeter and more beloved to them than that. Imagine guaranteed, there is nothing you can do that will

00:56:00--> 00:56:02

get a loss of habitat to be angry at you, you're safe.

00:56:05--> 00:56:08

Nothing will be close to that. Now.

00:56:10--> 00:56:10

The

00:56:11--> 00:56:13

further he goes.

00:56:14--> 00:56:17

And he says that Allah subhanaw taala will call the people of virgin

00:56:19--> 00:56:42

to his presence subhana wa Tada. And then he says to them, should I should I not increase you? Should I not give you more? And then they will say, and I'm gonna add them to the hidden agenda for today, gentlemen, and not we have brightened our faces. You have admitted us to gender you have kept us and saved us from the hellfire. What else should we ask for? We can't ask for anything more. And Allah subhanaw taala will reveal

00:56:43--> 00:56:46

the hijab the barrier,

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

you know,

00:56:48--> 00:56:52

Allah subhanaw taala will reveal Himself to them, and then they will see a loss.

00:56:54--> 00:57:22

directly the process of it says, as you see the moon, like, there will be no doubt about it. Imagine being able to see your Lord your Creator, the one that actually is taking care of you as we speak right now, you will get to see a loss of data be in the Presence of Allah speak to Allah subhanho data directly. And the prophets Allah sort of says, they will not be given anything more pleasing than that, they will be able to see a loss.

00:57:24--> 00:57:32

And anyone that will see a law, you know, that will be pleased Forever, ever after that. Now, why are we talking about this?

00:57:34--> 00:57:36

Why are we mentioning all of this?

00:57:38--> 00:57:40

Because as I said earlier, that

00:57:42--> 00:57:56

we need something to aim for. We need to have a goal in life, we need to have something to look forward to. Otherwise, no matter how much you do, they say that you know even success that you

00:57:58--> 00:58:35

that you things that you achieve in dunya won't make any sense. You know, there are a lot of people who were very successful, let's say their goal was to become millionaires, and they became millionaires. And then after that, I don't have happiness. They feel like they're gonna go down. There is nothing they did it everything they could think of they did it was after that nothing, life will not make sense. Without anything after life. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, I'll keep this woman down enough so that the intelligent the smarter the clever one is the one that actually keeps himself under control that who will control himself while I'm in any my burden mode

00:58:35--> 00:58:38

in works for that which is after death, chin,

00:58:40--> 00:58:40

chin,

00:58:41--> 00:58:42

that will keep you in line.

00:58:45--> 00:58:50

It will help you and motivate you to control yourself to keep yourself under control.

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

Now, if you want genda, if you're happy about what we have talked about,

00:59:01--> 00:59:10

here's an opportunity for you to get the apex to get to the top of the prophet SAW Selim says and as a human debating fee and agenda limit

00:59:12--> 00:59:14

that I am, I guarantee,

00:59:16--> 00:59:23

I guarantee I guarantee you with a place a house a spot

00:59:24--> 00:59:28

and the apex of Paradise what I call the apex of Paradise, the top

00:59:29--> 00:59:32

of the top place engine.

00:59:33--> 00:59:52

Usually if you know when you go to some of those resorts and stuff like that, the higher you go, the more you have to pay, because you're gonna get better view right? You know, it's just much more so you want the top the products and services and design. I will guarantee anyone

00:59:53--> 00:59:56

the top place in genda who hasn't

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

he who improves

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

Or who perfects is Allah, his conduct, his morals, his behavior.

01:00:08--> 01:00:30

So here at sha Allah and of course called rules of engagement, which talks about Islamic code of ethics will provide you and we'll give you this opportunity, you want to rise to the top of agenda, you have to improve your behavior constantly, you have to become better in terms of the way you treat people in terms of your conduct.

01:00:31--> 01:01:08

And we have to learn a lot just like we know we learn or and just like we learn, how did you just like we learned I want to have a HELOC also has to be taught. Yes, Allah subhanaw taala has blessed some of us at hamdulillah with a very healthy good environment at home or at the masjid and so forth. And some of us have already been, you know, born with some good qualities. This course will allow you and help you identify those good qualities and prove them and strengthen them. And it will also allow you and equip you with what you need to identify some of those bad habits and bad qualities and give you and tell you how you can change them and improve them.

01:01:12--> 01:01:13

So if you want a place

01:01:15--> 01:01:21

in the top ranks of gender, then this is the course to attend insha Allah azzawajal

01:01:22--> 01:01:29

of course with sincerity Allah subhana wa Dhanush Allah will grant us all what we are asking for.

01:01:31--> 01:01:35
