00:05:42 --> 00:05:44

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:46 --> 00:05:47


00:05:50 --> 00:05:52

in a hadith collected by Muslim,

00:05:53 --> 00:05:57

hasten your good deeds, do your good deeds as soon as possible.

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

Don't delay it,

00:06:02 --> 00:06:03

do not procrastinate.

00:06:04 --> 00:06:05

Don't put it off.

00:06:07 --> 00:06:39

Whenever you have an opportunity to do a good deed, jump on it, take it sees it that is actually the attitude of a believer. Believers take advantage of any opportunity that is presented to them, because they understand that this life is nothing but a journey. This life is not a place of settlement. I mean, we sometimes foolishly you know we say oh I settled in such and such place are my permanent residence is this and that? Well, lucky none of us has a permanent residence in this life.

00:06:41 --> 00:07:06

Our permanent address should be or our aim and our goal should be that our permanent address would be in alpha doses. Allah fija Natty Juana hora, FEMA, en Dominican moqtada. That's where the believer belongs. That's his permanent address. Final abode. This is a transitional period, this life is a transition. Sooner or later, we're going to leave it

00:07:08 --> 00:07:16

I'm going to share with you a little incident that happened to me when I this is one of the lessons of what we always tell people to pack.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:20

pack light, I'm just going to share with you this

00:07:22 --> 00:07:30

one of the greatest lessons have you know, that that I personally encountered was on the first night for me in Mecca,

00:07:31 --> 00:07:33

where I took certain

00:07:35 --> 00:07:38

items with me. And I divided them into

00:07:40 --> 00:07:42

three different bags.

00:07:45 --> 00:07:51

And I carried some some things for some people with me as a gift.

00:07:53 --> 00:07:54

But I had too many pieces.

00:07:56 --> 00:07:58

And we always tell people pack light and take

00:07:59 --> 00:08:04

long story short, without going into the details I was dropped off at the wrong place.

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

And though the hammer was 10 minutes walk

00:08:09 --> 00:08:18

and my hotel was another 10 minutes away from where I was dropped off. But I just had way too many pieces to drag with me. I didn't know where to go.

00:08:20 --> 00:08:32

And I was slowed down. As I was struggling with these pieces. There was an old African man eating ice cream with his wife, he looked at me and he said, Why do you have so many pieces? This is how you Where are you going?

00:08:33 --> 00:08:48

And I said You're right. And I just stood there and I laughed and laughed at myself. I said some halala This reminded me of what may happen to people on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala talks about people who will carry their own burdens, and they will carry the burdens of other people

00:08:51 --> 00:08:56

to whom Allah will hold him and another woman was added Latina Luna home good ADA and people who will come with too many,

00:08:58 --> 00:09:09

they will have a lot of baggage with them on the Day of Judgment, and that will slow them down. And they won't be able to address because they just have way too too much of this.

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

Too much baggage

00:09:13 --> 00:09:14


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

And it will prevent them from reaching their destination and it will slow them down. I just stood there and I said oh law Forgive me. And let that not be my situation on the Day of Judgment.

00:09:28 --> 00:09:43

So during this is this is this is the reality of it, the more you have it, right, the harder it is to let go. And the slower you will be in terms of your journey to acclimate and each and every single one of us is on a journey to Africa.

00:09:44 --> 00:09:57

So the Prophet Salalah and we don't know when this journey ends. This is the irony of it that we don't know when this journey comes to an end. So the Prophet says whenever you have an opportunity to do a good deed do it when you have an obligation fulfill it

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

When you're tempted to do something that you're not supposed to do stay away from it because it won't last valuable.

00:10:07 --> 00:10:19

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said another reason is that even if you live long enough, the province on the long run, even sell them warn his companions of fitten trials and tribulations that will come our way when I add them.

00:10:20 --> 00:10:34

They will be so massive, they will be so intense that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that it will be like dark nights, pieces of dark nights, one falling, one coming after another falling upon us.

00:10:35 --> 00:10:39

And we know when it gets very dark, what happens when there is no light.

00:10:41 --> 00:11:03

You don't know where to go, you lose your sense of direction. You get lost, you don't know where to go, you get stuck. So not only do burdens, and and too much baggage slows you down, but also when you have no no sense of direction where to go. So the Prophet said that these trials and tribulations can come and

00:11:05 --> 00:11:14

you know, be a great source of distraction. So my so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, a time will come where a person will

00:11:15 --> 00:11:22

wake up in the morning as a believer, and by the end of the day at night, by nightfall that person will lose his or her Amen.

00:11:24 --> 00:11:29

And many people go to sleep as believers, they wake up and they lose their email. And this is happening.

00:11:31 --> 00:11:33

This is happening as we speak.

00:11:34 --> 00:11:38

To many people left and right people are losing their faith.

00:11:40 --> 00:11:45

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in exchange for a matter of dunya worldly gain.

00:11:47 --> 00:11:54

This world again doesn't always have to be wealth or money or it could be it could be a career opportunity.

00:11:56 --> 00:11:57

It could be fame,

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

it could be acceptance.

00:12:01 --> 00:12:03

Just I want to be accepted.

00:12:05 --> 00:12:07

I want to be I want to belong.

00:12:08 --> 00:12:23

Right? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the person basically gives up his or her faith for these kind of worldly gains. So the Prophet said, do your good deeds good deeds and and you know protects you preserve you righteousness preserves you.

00:12:26 --> 00:12:34

In another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives an example. He said, let one of you a man asked him, What is the best

00:12:37 --> 00:12:39

of sada charity.

00:12:41 --> 00:12:58

And the Prophet spoke about because you know, most people when they come, when they approach end of life, most people start thinking about leaving a legacy behind, or I want to set up a charity, I want to do this and I want to do that. It's very unfortunate that many people don't still, you know,

00:12:59 --> 00:13:12

they hold on to, but but a lot of decent people, when they approach end of life, or when they are told that they may be going through a medical,

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

they may be going through a health issue. They immediately think about, oh, I need to do something for my extra

00:13:20 --> 00:13:32

I need to do so I need to leave behind the legacy. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while that is something praiseworthy, the prophet spoke, he said the best of Swords is actually that which you give.

00:13:33 --> 00:13:46

When early on in your life, when you're doing okay, when you have income, and when you hope that you're going to live for a long time. And when you are afraid that one day, you may need this wealth.

00:13:48 --> 00:13:50

Right? Yet you still give out of it.

00:13:51 --> 00:14:04

And you don't wait until last minute the Prophet Swanson have said you don't wait until the last minute. You're not like that person that waits until the last minute and then when they are dying, they say oh give so and so this watching give so and so this much.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:26

Don't wait in another Headey or in another text. Allah Subhana Allah in the Quran tells us warns us It says give from your wealth before that day comes when death comes upon you. And then one of you would say Oh Allah give me some time so that I can give charity and that I can do good deeds. Do it now.

00:14:28 --> 00:14:28


00:14:31 --> 00:14:45

I just came back from Hajj. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah accept me ALLAH forgive our sins and overlook our shortcomings. And we were told that 2.3 million people a little more than 2.3 million people performed Hajj this year.

00:14:46 --> 00:14:52

Now you do the math. That's nothing compared to the population of Muslims in the world.

00:14:53 --> 00:14:59

What is 2.3 out of 1.8 billion, 2.3 million is nothing

00:15:01 --> 00:15:08

Less than 00 2% 00 0.0002%.

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

Now at this rate, if every year only this number of people or 3 million people make Hajj

00:15:19 --> 00:15:22

you do the math, it will take more than 1000 years.

00:15:23 --> 00:15:28

In order for all of the all of the existing Muslims right now to be able to make it

00:15:30 --> 00:15:33

that tells me the vast majority of Muslims don't get to make much.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:44

Now, however, only 24 about 25,000 Muslims from North America, South America and Australia combined performed Hajj this year.

00:15:47 --> 00:15:51

More than 50% of the Hajaj came from Asian countries.

00:15:53 --> 00:16:03

I personally ran into someone that performed hedge, very good hedge most likely, maybe in terms of its spiritual value and quality, maybe better than our hedge.

00:16:05 --> 00:16:09

And it cost him about about 1000, maybe less than $2,000 for Malaysia.

00:16:13 --> 00:16:21

Now looking at the resources that some of the Muslims are many actually many the majority of Muslims who performed hedges this year,

00:16:22 --> 00:16:24

looking at the resources that they have,

00:16:26 --> 00:16:39

you know, and looking at what they had to go through to perform hajj, I came back fully convinced that the average Muslim living in the United States of America has no excuse whatsoever to put off hygiene not perform Hajj.

00:16:42 --> 00:16:55

And that it should within a year or two, maybe maximum five years if someone has student loans and other and other issues, other financial issues. Every single person in America should be able to perform hedge.

00:16:58 --> 00:17:14

If hedge is if this obligation is a serious matter, but the reason we put off hedge is because it's part of that general attitude that we have about about doing good deeds and about our commitment to Allah subhanho wa Taala I have plenty of time.

00:17:16 --> 00:17:17

I have plenty of time.

00:17:18 --> 00:17:20

I can skip prayers I have plenty of time.

00:17:21 --> 00:17:30

And this is one of the great one of the greatest, get worse ways shavon deceives human beings.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:54

So I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make you and I have those who listen and follow the vessel for they listen to ask Allah Subhana Allah to allow you and I to experience spiritual awakening before it's too late. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to allow you and I to repent to him and to return to Him and ask a loss of habitat for acceptance Apollo Adam cola Sofitel, la honey welcome for sulfuryl la come in hola for Rahim.

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

Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah. Hi Betty Latina SATA. Well that my dear brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala will hold us accountable.

00:18:21 --> 00:18:26

And according to the standards of our living and the opportunities that we were given,

00:18:28 --> 00:18:32

we have freedom, we have wealth, we have opportunities

00:18:33 --> 00:18:38

that we are enjoying here. like no other place in the world.

00:18:41 --> 00:18:43

The average lifestyle of

00:18:45 --> 00:18:47

a person living in America is considered a dream.

00:18:48 --> 00:18:53

Or it's considered something that can only be experienced in genda for many people in the world.

00:18:56 --> 00:19:02

And that's not something that is given to us because we're just so very special to a loss of Hannah Horton.

00:19:03 --> 00:19:05

But this is our test.

00:19:06 --> 00:19:13

We're tested with these luxuries with these opportunities. And if we're not thankful, then it will be taken away from us.

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

If we're not careful, then we will be punished by it.

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

So we should always beg a loss of habitat for forgiveness. Be grateful for what we have, make the best use of it and not abused or wasted.

00:19:29 --> 00:19:46

And always beg Allah subhanho wa Taala and seek refuge in Him from losing his blessings upon us Allah in becoming severely nomadic. What the * they are Fujairah Tina kemetic watch me I psychotic the other day. You know, I received the news when I was in Medina. It just popped on my phone.

00:19:48 --> 00:19:53

You know, some people didn't even feel it here. Some people others felt it. Right

00:19:54 --> 00:19:55


00:19:57 --> 00:19:59

some people didn't even feel it and some people did.

00:20:01 --> 00:20:07

That's a reminder, that's a reminder that what we have can can all be gone in a matter of seconds.

00:20:11 --> 00:20:17

And the southern part of India in the state of Kerala, I learned this morning that there was a huge massive

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

mudslide that claimed, I think 40%

00:20:22 --> 00:20:32

of that covered 40% of the state. And many, many people lost their lives and properties, serious damage.

00:20:34 --> 00:20:38

Again, this is a reminder that we could lose everything that we have in a matter of seconds.

00:20:40 --> 00:20:53

So, let us pay attention to the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala upon us express gratitude to Allah azza wa jal and as I said, again, take advantage of what we have in fulfill our obligations towards Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:20:54 --> 00:21:19

And let us also remember those who are suffering in our prayers and ask Allah subhanaw taala to alleviate their pain and their suffering, and then dip deep into our pockets and help them with whatever we can open it Nebula Junko Rahmatullahi Embrey Natasha de Robin Allah to the Kaluga Nevada data kurama in the cancer will have a long marriage that Islam and Muslim in
