smoothed out a little haven hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah early use of the one WADA

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

just already started

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

that shows how

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

before I forget, next week insha Allah halacha will be at 737 30 I know it's easier to have the helicopter salata, Multilib or when Aisha is early to have it outside of Asia, because you already coming for multiple Asia, but to have it at 730 that's where the challenge is, and that's where the numbers drop, right? I still will do the Halacha inshallah.

00:00:58--> 00:01:02

And again, I haven't finalized the topic Pachala will let you know.

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

Next week, we admit that I'm just doing a few consultations and just thinking about it a bit more carefully.

00:01:11--> 00:01:21

Today, I thought I'd explain a hadith that's in line with the topic of the hotbar that we mentioned today. And this is one of the 40 Hadith of unknowing

00:01:24--> 00:01:56

hadith is from his collected variable hurry, it's from Abdullah Muhammad and Abdullah ignobly Allah and oh my god Rasulullah sallallahu it he was sending them a beaming Kiba for all the confit. Dunya can Nikka hurry, I will have eurosai or cannabis Muhammad Ali Allahu Anhu may have all either MC def alert until the Saba what else better for Latin tell the reader Messiah Waldman's heavy carry Maldek woman hierarchically Manotick Buhari,

00:01:58--> 00:02:06

Abdullah and Omar will be Allah and hermana reads, He says the Prophet sallallahu Sallam put his hands on my shoulders.

00:02:08--> 00:02:12

Abdullah Mohammed was a teenager during the life of the prophet Sallallahu he was.

00:02:15--> 00:02:20

So the and that shows how the prophets of Allah Allah, he was selling them.

00:02:26--> 00:02:27


00:02:29--> 00:02:45

the prophecies are how we approach teenagers, how we approached teenagers, that we usually do this in a friendly as a friendly gesture, right? You come to say 15 years old, 16 years old, 12 years old, you come and put you put your hand on the shoulders, right?

00:02:47--> 00:02:47

Am I

00:02:48--> 00:02:55

so what does that mean? That means because that kind of physical approach to that kind of physical contact.

00:02:56--> 00:03:35

It breaks the ice and it brings the people together. It brings the people together, we humans, we love to touch each other in a decent fashion. We love to do when you talk to someone, you put your hand on their shoulder, or you tap them on the on the elbow. It's actually a very it's a sign. It's more of a social acumen. It's social skill, to be able to do that at the right time in the right fashion. Right. And really community is sends a strong message is a very powerful way of communication. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam being the messenger, alayhi salatu, salam, he's approaching Abdullah, Muhammad, the young companion, he puts his hand on hands on his shoulders, his

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

palms on his shoulders.

00:03:39--> 00:04:11

So that obviously imagine put yourself in the position of Abdullah Omar, you'd feel like drawn to the Prophet source and that he's so close to you that there is no formality here. There's so there's so much connection. And that shows that the prophets have sort of spoke to everyone in the way that was suitable to them. Whether their age, their personality, their nature, and so on and so forth. And even the, the, the the mode of communication would

00:04:13--> 00:04:52

be in alignment with the message itself. That obviously, when you speak to a teenager, and you're such a person of high status, and you put your hands on the shoulders, and the all ears and eyes, they want to take everything you say, right, they're going to take it to heart, the President gives him a message and the message is profound. It's about the nature of the slave. It's about the nature of time, it's about the nature of our experience with this life, and some metaphor that's the most powerful message and metaphor. Metaphors are powerful. Why? Because there are symbols, it's an image and images drive the point home.

00:04:53--> 00:04:57

The very profound they're very powerful. That's why Allah says in one of the

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

world rebula hole and fat

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

leanness and Allah strikes, metaphors parables examples for people because people learn through metaphors. We learn a lot stories are metaphors. That's why they're quite informative. So the prophets Eliza limp sister alone or confit dunya can occur hurry,

00:05:20--> 00:05:21

I will also be

00:05:23--> 00:05:30

very simple statement, be in this worldly life as a stranger, or as a Wayfarer.

00:05:32--> 00:05:58

That's how you should go through this life. That's the attitude you should maintain with this stuff. That's how you should live your life. It's a mindset. It's a mindset. And the beautiful thing about a mindset, what's the difference between a mindset and an action and action. For example, the promiseland would say, after every salah, you say subhanallah, 33 times Hamdulillah 33 times, Allah or 33 times, then you say that ilaha illallah, WA adolescence.

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

That's an action. That's an instruction. It's limited to this specific action.

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

The Prophet SAW Selim would say in the morning, you say this, or this or they could you say this.

00:06:12--> 00:06:22

But here's the problem is not giving us an instruction about a specific action. He's giving a mindset and approach to life. And this

00:06:23--> 00:06:35

leaks into every aspect of your life, every aspect of your life. I'll give you an example that I believe is quite telling, especially if we have some fathers here. You know, the moment

00:06:37--> 00:06:48

it's a turning point in everyone's life when they have their first child. Because used to live your life, as an individual, mainly, as an individual, the moment you have a child,

00:06:49--> 00:07:06

your mindset changes, your outlook on life changes why now you realize you don't live for yourself, you live for someone else, automatically. You hold your child in your hand, you say, I'll sacrifice my life for this child, for this baby.

00:07:08--> 00:07:13

That's a turning point. That's mindset, your mindset has changed. And that's going to show so

00:07:14--> 00:07:37

ways of behavior that you had before being a father now would start changing. How you spend spent money would start would start changing, cuz you would spend money recklessly, before being a father, whatever you get, you spend it whatever you get you expendable. Once you have once you become a father and you have a child, when you have money. You know, if you spend the money the child will suffer.

00:07:39--> 00:07:59

You realize the money's not mine. That's a mindset, your outlook on things changed, changes completely. And that's why the Prophet Salam is instructing Abdullah Omar here, he's not telling him about an action to do. It gives him a way of life, a completely different perspective on life. They will help you get things help you get things, right.

00:08:02--> 00:08:06

So he says be in this worldly life as a stranger

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

or as a Wayfarer, traveler.

00:08:14--> 00:08:20

And metaphors are packed, we have to unpack them. So let's see what a stranger is confit dunya.

00:08:23--> 00:08:25

What does this mindset entail?

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

First, it's about belonging.

00:08:30--> 00:08:38

When you're a stranger, that means you don't belong here. Right? You're a stranger, you don't believe you belong you you're a visitor.

00:08:39--> 00:08:52

That's not your homeland. That's not your home. That's not your country. That's not your land. That's not your territory. Right. So that means you're a stranger. So when you're a stranger, you don't act like you're you're at home.

00:08:53--> 00:08:54

When you're a stranger,

00:08:56--> 00:08:59

you don't make, for example, long term investments.

00:09:01--> 00:09:06

It's mainly short term. When you're a stranger. You don't buy furniture.

00:09:07--> 00:09:26

Right? It's a mindset. It informs everything else you do. When you're a stranger. You don't start planning your whole life long term plans based on this locality, right? Because you're here for a short time. You don't belong here. You don't belong here.

00:09:27--> 00:09:28


00:09:29--> 00:09:59

if we approach this life in this mindset, and by the way, it's true. It is true. We don't We are strangers here. We don't belong here. But we just get too comfortable to the point that we forget this fact. We forget that we are visitors here. We came into this world on a temporary basis. It's exactly when you get a visa into a country you get temporary resident status, right? You're a temporary that means you're not permanent resident. You're a temporary resident. So you staying here for six months.

00:10:00--> 00:10:17

They say after six months, you have to leave, you can't stay over there. Otherwise, you'd be illegal, there are complications, and so on and so forth. And in this world, you're going to stay for a short period of time. Now, let's say you're visiting a country for six months, you get too comfortable, you start buying a house, you start

00:10:19--> 00:10:33

financing a car, right, which takes, let's say, four years to pay off. Does that make sense? It doesn't make sense. You stop building long term plans, as if you're gonna live here for all your life.

00:10:34--> 00:10:40

But six months later, you're going to leave, I'm going to leave. That means any investment you put in here is a waste

00:10:42--> 00:10:56

is a waste, you're wasting your investment, your capital, you're not supposed to do this. That's exactly how we are in this world, we are on a temporary resident status in this world, we're not going to stay here.

00:10:58--> 00:11:09

We're going to leave although from where you are, sometimes it might seem as though you're going to stay for long. And that was what's called what it's called, I've always referred to as two Lululemon,

00:11:10--> 00:11:18

two Lululemon, it's attachment to the world, and you just have this kind of delusional hope that you're going to stay for long.

00:11:20--> 00:11:29

You're going to stay for long. So you start investing in this company, investing in this property, investing in this vehicle. And

00:11:31--> 00:11:49

as if you're going to stay there all your life. But then the problem is, when the term comes to an end, you have to leave. And you can't put the vehicle that you purchased in your suitcase, you can't carry the home that you bought, you know, on your shoulders,

00:11:50--> 00:12:10

you have to leave that somebody might say, okay, but I'll I'll sell the house, etc. But it happens. Like, I know, personally, one of my cousins, he was, he visited the UK, when I was living there. And on a temporary basis, he was doing some kind of qualification in medicine.

00:12:11--> 00:12:19

And he got too comfortable. He loved the country. And he and he got a temporary job after he finished his course.

00:12:21--> 00:12:24

He got too comfortable. So he bought a house.

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

And he took a loan on the house.

00:12:32--> 00:12:38

So what happened, he started going through the process of switching his visa to

00:12:39--> 00:12:48

from a student visa into a work visa. And that was allowed there. So he did everything legal. But what happened

00:12:49--> 00:12:50


00:12:53--> 00:12:55

his application wasn't successful.

00:12:58--> 00:13:19

And he had the house for about I think, a year and one year, just one year plus. And then he had to leave the country, he had to sell the house, he sold the house at a loss of I believe, like above 30 40,000 pounds, which is almost $70,000 US dollars.

00:13:21--> 00:13:50

Right. So again, what he did, he started planning long term, when he was here short term was on a short term basis. He didn't realize he thought he would stay. And that was delusional hope that was totally lemon. And that's the trap that we fall into in this life is that we forget that we are strangers, that we don't belong here. We were not created for this world. We're not created to stay in this world. We're not designed, our bodies are not designed to stay in this world for long.

00:13:51--> 00:14:09

So we're inevitably going to leave, but we tend to miss the sight of this fact. And fall for the delusional hope that we're going to stay here for long. So we start acting and you know, doing things as if we're going to live forever.

00:14:10--> 00:14:31

And that's the problem. So the Prophet is when he says be in this world as a stranger would that basically means keep in mind that you don't belong here. You're here on a temporary resident as a temporary resident, and you're going to leave. So make your long term plans based on this fact keep this perspective because the moment you feel you are local.

00:14:33--> 00:14:34

That's the moment you're in trouble.

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

How do you know someone?

00:14:41--> 00:14:56

So the thing is, we are so we are we are supposed to keep in mind that we are here on a temporary basis and we are we are strangers. So that's number one with regards to a stranger. What else can we take from the metaphor or the the mindset of a stranger

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


00:15:01--> 00:15:02


00:15:05--> 00:15:08

does not get themselves

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

to come to they don't get too comfortable.

00:15:14--> 00:15:41

They don't get too comfortable in the sense they don't have, they don't settle down. They don't settle down. So the meanings we're going to talk about are a bit close to each other. But we want to, we want to still talk about these smallest distinctions between them. So you don't settle down in the sense. You don't not, you know, set your roots in this place. You don't settle down, you don't feel too comfortable.

00:15:43--> 00:15:49

So you always feel that you have a home and you're going to go back to it.

00:15:51--> 00:15:55

So you don't settle. Your heart stays attached to back home.

00:15:57--> 00:16:08

Heart is attached about your heart does not feel belongs, it doesn't sit leave. It always, is always connected. It's always yearning and longing to your home.

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

And that's an important meaning that we have because we were not designed for this world. We were not designed for this world.

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

I'm gonna share with you some quotes that indicate these meetings.

00:16:22--> 00:16:25

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:16:27--> 00:17:02

Malli will it duniya in the mammoth, it will method dunya chemistry rock even if you have only Nisha gelatin from metal Hatanaka. The province of Salim says, you know, what do I have to do with this? Dunya? What's the connection between me and Mr. The example of me and this dunya this worldly life is the example of a traveler who rested or took a nap in the shade of a tree. Then he left he lifted and, you know went ahead with with his journey. That's my example with dystonia.

00:17:03--> 00:17:30

So the dunya is like a shape a shade, the shade of a tree, you taken up small rest small time in terms of period. Do you ever have a sense of belonging to that? You know, that tree? That spot? You don't do build any long term plans? You don't? Where is your direction? Where's your attention? Where are you longing to? Where are you gravitating to back home?

00:17:31--> 00:17:39

Back home, so you're not here, you there is there is there is no connection between you. And this place is just a place of utility.

00:17:40--> 00:17:57

It's a place of temporary utility. And thanks for this. For this help. I was gonna I was looking for an example. You know, the Kleenex that you use the tissues that we use, right? To blow your nose? or wipe something with it.

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

Okay, does it have?

00:18:01--> 00:18:13

Do you build the connection with it? Do you say this tissue is so dear to me, I'm gonna keep it. I'm gonna have it with me for lifetime and you keep it and you show it to your children to grandchildren. We don't do that, right?

00:18:14--> 00:18:22

It's a tissue, it's a tissue, you use it, you take the utility, the new throw it, you have no connection to it.

00:18:23--> 00:19:02

No connection to it, there's no value in it for you apart from the utility that it gives one, once you get this utility, you throw it away. That's exactly what this dunya is. That's exactly what this dunya is. It's hard for us to swallow this. Why? Because we spent a relatively long time here to the point that we settled down, and we get attached here and we think mistakingly that we belong. Once we have this mindset, we think we're going to stay for long. I mean, we know by the way, like logic, that cognitively logically we know we're not going to stay for long. But emotionally, we're not paying attention to that. So it feels as though we're going to stay for long, we're going to live

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


00:19:03--> 00:19:11

We think that age 70 Is is far far ahead that that's going to take like ages to get there.

00:19:12--> 00:19:23

But anyone who's who's past their 20s. Like they know they know that you've been long enough in this world to realize that 10 years fly like that.

00:19:26--> 00:19:27


00:19:28--> 00:19:51

our relationship with this with this worldly life is just like something of a utility, something simple that has no true value. We just take the utility of it or the benefit of it. And then we leave it we don't get attached to it. Like imagine someone every time they use a tissue. They keep it why because they get attached to it.

00:19:53--> 00:19:56

And by the way, there's psychological condition that there's actually this.

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

So imagine how this person's life is

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

is going to be, life will be the house will be full of tissues, right?

00:20:05--> 00:20:28

All over the place. The right people will have a hoarding issue. I don't know what they have a name for it. So there are people have this hoarding issue, they can't get rid of anything. Anything. So you go into the closet, there's so many clothes that never used, they will never use, but they can't just throw them or give them away. They can't. And there are people who can't throw even garbage.

00:20:31--> 00:20:41

It's a psychological condition. And there have been a few like, TV shows actually going into such people's homes, and you see the mess.

00:20:42--> 00:21:23

Unbelievable. So, so we have this kind of tendency with this worldly life, we get attached to it, we feel we belong, we settle down, and we get voted among all this delusional hope that we're going to stay there is stay here forever. And we develop a sense of belonging. The problem is that we don't belong here, we have to go back home. And back home is supposed to be paradise for us. It's supposed to be paradise. So again, the problem is saying a traveler, that means to travel strangers or a stranger, they know I am not I'm not supposed to stay here on a once a year for long, and my heart is attached somewhere else.

00:21:24--> 00:21:28

Our Bureau Sabine Iberostar is more of an explanation eyebrow Sebby.

00:21:29--> 00:21:38

That basically, so gareeb explains your mindset. Abra Sabine explains your actions.

00:21:39--> 00:22:06

So the mindset is, I'm a stranger, I don't belong here. I don't settle here. My heart is attached somewhere else. I'm just passing through this. I'm taking utility from here, and I'm moving on. I'm not gonna get attached to this. I will also be is a traveler. Now a traveler, the problem is saying, behave in this world as if you're a traveler, what does it travel, do? Travel, like when you are traveler, you don't go and buy, for example.

00:22:07--> 00:22:33

Like utensils and Home and Kitchen stuff, right? You're not at least you don't go and buy folks like metal forks, stainless steel forks, and spoons and knives do you. You don't you might buy disposable stuff. Plastic. Why because you are a traveler. So the problem said act in this world, in terms of your actions, as if you are a traveler. So when you are a traveler again,

00:22:34--> 00:22:36

you know, you don't mind.

00:22:37--> 00:22:38

For example,

00:22:40--> 00:23:11

you don't have to sleep in the most comfortable place. You don't have to eat in the in the best restaurant, you're not going to have the luxury of food, that is homemade food, there is a lot of things that as a traveler, you will, you will put up with the hardship that is inherent in the process of traveling right? When you travel, there's a lot of hardship. And that's part of what we experienced in this world. Because we don't belong here. And we're going through this life. And it's a journey. And we're going to go through a lot of hardship inconvenience.

00:23:12--> 00:23:51

And that means the President says, So, see your your your, your, your experience in this life, just like that. And by the way, if we just do this, it's a profound experience. But again, you can't you can't implement this hadith by just reading it, or just memorizing it. Or just thinking about it like this, you literally have to take some time out and view yourself as a traveler or as a stranger in this world that you don't belong here. And if I ask any anyone here, including myself, do I do we feel we belong? Well, yeah.

00:23:53--> 00:24:12

For the most part, yes, we feel we belong. So it's not easy to feel, to detach ourselves from this world. But it's two things that we have to do, attach ourselves back and not attach but figure out the attachment that we already have to the to Allah subhanaw taala and to Jana, and

00:24:13--> 00:24:31

help that pull us away from attachments into this world. So we start severing this attachment to this world and realizing that we are really on a journey. We are a man will pay him in his book and Boyd has a beautiful small section but very powerful. He gives a complete analogy about this life. And he says

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

he says dunya Rashleigh to suffer that's the title, this worldly life is a trip is it is a journey. You're traveling, then you started explaining how everything about this. You know, life is exactly similar to to a journey and

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

Imam has an irreversible hammerlock to Allah. He basically says that the day and the night are the stations that you are passing through, in this in this journey of life. So oftentimes we want we want to see the journey, we tend to see the journey as a physical

00:25:20--> 00:25:31

entity, like we're moving from one spot to another that's in physical terms. But journey could be to many things, so many things. A journey could be we're traveling through time.

00:25:32--> 00:25:36

The journey of life is a journey of time

00:25:37--> 00:25:54

is a journey of time, although there is a place element in it, which is the earth but it's it's about time we are traveling through time and the station's we're going through our day and night we'll come to some of the quotations here Inshallah, that will sort of explain. Explain this.

00:25:56--> 00:25:57


00:26:04--> 00:26:22

I don't even know be thought they probably Allahu Anhu said in the dunya for the harlot motivala, or in fear of filter PATA, Hallett mobila When he couldn't be mean her mother known for corner woman Abner in Fira, what are the coulomb inhibitor in dunya, for in yo Muhammad on whether he sub woofer than a servant.

00:26:23--> 00:26:29

Or even when we thought about the Allah one who said he said, this worldly life has already set off

00:26:31--> 00:26:32

away from us.

00:26:33--> 00:26:41

It already started his journey away from us, it's pulling itself away from us, it's already coming to an end this life.

00:26:42--> 00:26:47

And the NFL has already set off towards us. It's coming towards us.

00:26:48--> 00:27:14

And he says for each one of them is worth the life and the alpha for each one of them. There will be people are sons, he says be from the sons of the Acura Don't be of the sons of this dunya. Because this dunya will soon depart. But the Acura is everlasting is going to stay forever. So he says it's foolish basically is indicating it's foolish to choose what's like what's what's departing and leaving

00:27:16--> 00:27:53

over what is coming, what is arriving, like in the business world, if you want to be if you want to have greater chances and potential, you want to look at where technologies is heading to where the market, what is what is the direction of the market, right, you want to anticipate. So you structure your business and take a business model that will actually give you an advantage. Three years, five years, 10 years from now, that's the way to do business, right? You don't structure your business or build a business model around something that is actually flourishing now, but it's too late, like in about, let's say 510 years, this business will be extinct anyway. There's no point in investing in

00:27:53--> 00:28:19

it. Right? Because the investments you put here, they might start paying off for a few years from now. But you're already entering the market, like too late, too late. So what means that great investment that you put will stop you know, giving you profit maybe five years down the line, and it won't be worth it. That's exactly what he's saying is saying this market of this dunya department is already departing you catching the last bits of it.

00:28:21--> 00:28:32

So it's not worth investing in it now. Invest in what's coming. Invest in what is to come, because that's going to be there and that's gonna that will be everlasting.

00:28:33--> 00:28:46

He says because today there is room for deeds and actions and there is no account you're not held accountable. But tomorrow in the afternoon, there will be account but there will be no deeds you can't do any deeds

00:28:54--> 00:29:23

all available hakama has shipped to me many Dounia Manuel de atone. I know. Well Ashura, Tomoko Vela tune la Roble motivala Where you are able to handle Mokuba wise person he said, like I'm amazed. I'm like, puzzled by someone who sees the dunya is running away from them. And the action was coming to them. And they're so busy chasing what's running away and turning a blind eye or turning away from what is coming what's approaching them. What's coming to them

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

tambourine minute and you're gonna head over here and

00:30:04--> 00:30:06

imagine you're gonna also this is not his.

00:30:09--> 00:30:10

So he says,

00:30:12--> 00:30:29

I'm gonna I'm gonna as he's in his hotbar, he said, this worldly life is not your home is not a place of residence for you. Allah has written upon it, departure and extinction is going to come to an end.

00:30:31--> 00:30:41

And the loss Hunter has written upon its people, the people of this dunya, Allah has written upon them travel, they have to leave it, they have to travel, when death comes, you have to leave this world. So you're going to travel.

00:30:43--> 00:30:47

He says how often you will find a house that is

00:30:49--> 00:30:56

inhabited by its people, and it's full of life soon will be left as a ruin.

00:30:58--> 00:31:05

And how often you will find someone who has settled and they are happy about their

00:31:06--> 00:31:24

residence and about their life. Soon, they will depart. So he says, may Allah have mercy upon you do your best in traveling or leaving this dunya with the best provisions and tools that you have now, at your disposal.

00:31:26--> 00:31:28

You know, what this reminds me of?

00:31:29--> 00:31:59

is how often someone who's really happy and enjoying their life, and soon they will just depart. And I have this I noticed some of the people that I know personally, I know my aunt herself. She was her husband passed away. And he left quite a bit of like, like finances for her. She was comfortable. She was happy. She had her own house. And she had her sisters around and she was connected. And she was living a social life, which she loved a lot. And she was very comfortable. And she was enjoying it.

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


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

a couple of years afterwards

00:32:09--> 00:32:22

she had to be rushed to the hospital than what she had cancer. And a few months later she passed away it's like a dream. Honestly, it's like a dream and she wasn't that old

00:32:23--> 00:32:29

when it seemed like a like yeah she she's got everything finances she's comfortable.

00:32:30--> 00:32:41

No issues no problems she's she gets gets along with people very well. She's very kind, sociable person. And when you see when you just think everything is just going great for her all of a sudden all collapse.

00:32:43--> 00:32:46

That's what this world is. Another thing I remembered as I was reading this as

00:32:48--> 00:33:17

a couple of months ago, I watched this video and there are people who are like adventurous people will go into like forsaken places deserted, you know, buildings, etc. Haunted Places, right? Oh, no, they forgot where they call them. But these guys are just going into any place and they start exploring it sometimes at night. And I saw this video by some Arabs in Iraq, actually in Baghdad done. And these guys, they're actually exploring the palace of Saddam Hussein.

00:33:20--> 00:33:24

As you can see, like the house is like ruins now. But you can see how

00:33:26--> 00:33:36

like how, like, the luxury in that place, the magnificence and the architecture and everything and the facilities that they had. And just look at that.

00:33:39--> 00:33:56

It's like 15 years ago, 16 years ago, this was full of life. This was family members, humans were living here, and they were enjoying it. And there was the these were the most powerful individuals and family in Iraq. And they were living their life. And they had all they wanted, right?

00:33:58--> 00:34:03

Look at that all of a sudden, it's a ruin. dogs live in it now.

00:34:04--> 00:34:07

Dogs, and like stray animals live in it.

00:34:08--> 00:34:21

And where is it? It's in the middle of bardez. Middle still of the city of Baghdad. It's not like in the middle of nowhere. And you look at it as if it's from some like some two 300 years ago.

00:34:23--> 00:34:40

So and that's where he says sometimes you find a house that is full of life, but then soon it turns into our own habits. So the moment we think we take things for granted, and then we think we have we have it and life has given itself over to us.

00:34:41--> 00:34:53

Soon after it will it will go away. So again, that's the nature of this life. It's temporary. It's fleeting, it's not going to stay there forever. So don't sort of put your investment there. It's a very bad investment.

00:35:17--> 00:35:21

has almost the again he says Son of Adam, you are writing to animals. Alternative like alternate alternating bit from one riding animal to another. The day delivers you to the night and the night delivers you to the day. It's just like as we said as stations, one station tissue. You go to one station from that station, you take a ride to the next station next station to the following station and so on and so forth. And he says who is in more of a serious situation like you. It's serious every day. You're

00:36:25--> 00:36:26

in he says

00:36:28--> 00:36:33

Elmo tomar Odom Benassi como dunya talked while I'm in what he's saying.

00:36:34--> 00:36:35


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

is fixed right in front of you. Wherever you go, death is awaiting you is ahead of you. You're heading to it. Whether you like it or not, you are actually walking to your death

00:36:47--> 00:36:48

and the DoDEA

00:36:49--> 00:37:01

law life is behind you. You're gonna be behind you. That's, that's the real. That's the structure. Death is in front of you. And life is behind you. That's the reality.

00:37:03--> 00:37:35

So the way he says the day and the night are actually stations that you travel from one to the other

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

until you reach the final destination

00:37:41--> 00:37:57

so if you are able to use every station or every leg of your of your journey of your trip to prepare for your final destination or for your trip and to get rid of as much as you can of your burden

00:37:59--> 00:38:05

do that soon you'll find death will come over

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


00:38:08--> 00:38:10

And it will take you by surprise

00:38:31--> 00:38:37

So one wise person he said, How come someone is happy with this dunya when

00:38:38--> 00:38:41

his day is eating up his month

00:38:42--> 00:38:56

because the day knocks off a day from your month, right? So it's up your month and his months his month is eating up his years and his year is eating up his lifetime.

00:38:58--> 00:39:11

How can someone be happy when their lifetime their existence in this life is delivering them to their death is carrying them to the death and their life?

00:39:13--> 00:39:15

Their life is giving them to their death.

00:39:16--> 00:39:28

Mr. Maha for indicating that he may not be the Bema Maga will never be with you. Okay?

00:40:08--> 00:40:10

So, follow up, asks a man

00:40:12--> 00:40:18

how long? How long you've lived in this life like How old are you? The man says 60 years

00:40:19--> 00:40:20

Philemon Raoul says to him.

00:40:23--> 00:40:28

So for 60 years you've been traveling to your Lord.

00:40:30--> 00:40:36

Perhaps very soon you will arrive. Don't do that though. By the way, don't try this at home, then do this.

00:40:38--> 00:40:43

This for 60 years you've been traveling to Allah Azza seems like soon you'll arrive.

00:40:45--> 00:40:52

So the man says in the lower era, John, so now we belong and Seema will return for that email says, Do you know what that actually means?

00:40:53--> 00:41:08

It means whoever knows that they belong to the Lord to Allah, and that they are going to return to their Lord, they have to know that they will be questioned. And a person who knows that they will be questioned, they should have an answer ready?

00:41:10--> 00:41:12

So the man says, oh, what can I do?

00:41:14--> 00:41:18

I'm helpless. Tell me what can I do? He says easy.

00:41:19--> 00:41:32

He says you do. You do good in whatever remains in your life. Whatever has made you in life you do good. Because if you don't do good in the remainder of your life

00:41:33--> 00:41:39

and the remainder of your life, you will be held accountable for your past and for this coming future.

00:41:41--> 00:41:57

Meaning that if you fix what is remaining in your life, that Allah will wipe out your prophecies so again, like it's never too late as the point until the soul reaches the throat so we're going to stop here and I can take two or three questions and short

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


00:42:09--> 00:42:10

questions no questions

00:42:14--> 00:42:19

What are the signs your signs like how signs

00:42:25--> 00:42:30

I don't think I understand the question try to reword it for me

00:42:35--> 00:42:44

indication the old days some people well people don't know when they're gonna die, but sometimes sometimes Allah subhanaw taala might give some people science.

00:42:45--> 00:43:02

Some people not necessarily only the righteous people, sometimes some people know about that. Like, somehow they know about their day. So there is for example, Imam nawawi him Allah He had the dream he so in a dream that he was going to die so he went and prepared himself and he died

00:43:04--> 00:43:29

yeah, there is so there are stories of people who really like sort of even non Muslims sometimes they're actually like I read a story about someone who saw in a dream that he was how was going to run him over and that literally happened so how we don't understand how these four minute phenomenon really happened. But it could be but what most people know most people are taken by surprise yeah

00:43:32--> 00:43:33


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


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

so the only ones who see Allah subhanaw taala there will see him in Jannah

00:43:49--> 00:43:55

they will see Allah engine only the believers see a London

00:43:58--> 00:44:08

will not kill in Normanby Kameyama they've never had you're born indeed these people will be kept away from their Lord they will not be able to see they will be screened

00:44:12--> 00:44:21

we don't know Allah will speak to them. But his voice will strike fear in their hearts. Yeah. Okay. Any more questions?

00:44:22--> 00:44:24

Okay, shall we call it a night

00:44:25--> 00:44:42

like Zack will not hear so don't forget next week and next Friday inshallah the health will be 730 Halaqa will be 707 30 So see you then shall illogical Maha Salah Muhammad William Samuel salah.

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