All praise is due to Allah.

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

We praise Him.

00:02:03--> 00:02:07

We seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness.

00:02:09--> 00:02:27

We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves, and the evil consequences of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray. And whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, Nan can guide

00:02:28--> 00:02:35

I testify that there is none worthy of our worship and devotion, but the Almighty Allah alone.

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

And I testify

00:02:39--> 00:02:42

that Muhammad Sallallahu only he will earn he was Salam

00:02:43--> 00:03:41

is His servant, and His messenger. All you who believe, fear Allah as he should be feared and die not, except in a state of submission to your Lord as Muslims, or mankind. be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person and from him he created his wife. And from them both he created many men and women and fear Allah through whom you demand your mutual rights and observe the rights of your kin. Surely Allah is ever an old watcher over you, or you who believe. Keep your duty to Allah, fear him and speak the truth. He will direct you to righteous deeds and will forgive your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed attained a great achievement. The best

00:03:41--> 00:04:06

words are those of Allah. And the best guidance is that of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was seldom and the worst things in the religion are the newly invented matters for all the newly invented matters in religion, or heretic innovation and bid and every bid is misguidance. Allah tells us in the Quran,

00:04:08--> 00:04:11

Allah gives us a scene in the Quran.

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

From the day of judgment

00:04:16--> 00:04:17

he says

00:04:20--> 00:04:22

that the people of the Hellfire will be asked

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

masala comfy soccer

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

what made you

00:04:33--> 00:04:36

end up in the burning fire.

Column Nicole Minalima Celine

What am Nicole noble Eminem Iskin

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

what could Nana hobo Malhotra when

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

so when they asked him about the reason why they ended up in the pit of the Hellfire

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


00:05:01--> 00:05:07

they gave some reasons. They said we were not among those who established the prayer.

00:05:09--> 00:05:12

And we were not among those who would feed the poor.

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

And the third reason they mentioned is and we used to talk and do like other people. What could Nana hold? Oh my Aloha Ibrahim.

00:05:29--> 00:05:45

Welcome Nanoka they will be Yomi Dean. We used to disbelieve deny the hereafter. Our point here is that one of the descriptions of the people of the Hellfire, one of the reasons that lead people into the Hellfire

00:05:46--> 00:05:50

is the fact that they don't take ownership of their life.

00:05:52--> 00:06:04

They don't approach life with a sense of responsibility. In the sense, they cruise through life. They glide through life, like everyone else.

00:06:05--> 00:06:16

People go to school, they go to school. People go to university go, they go to university. People take up the career, they take up a career.

00:06:17--> 00:06:25

People do work, they do work. People get married, they get married. People go to the movies, they go to the movies.

00:06:27--> 00:06:29

People drink they drink.

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

People see nasty stuff, they see nasty stuff.

00:06:34--> 00:06:38

People say bad things. They say bad things, everyone is doing it.

00:06:40--> 00:06:43

They send their kids to the same schools as everyone else.

00:06:44--> 00:06:49

They want their schools to take the same path like everyone else's children.

00:06:50--> 00:06:54

They want to be like everyone else, one of the crowd.

00:06:56--> 00:07:05

And that's the easy way. Why? Because everyone is doing it. It's easy to join the herd. Cancel your mind,

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

and your uniqueness and your sense of responsibility and just throw yourself into the tide of society and it will carry you everyone can do it.

00:07:20--> 00:07:29

But what's the price for that? That if society goes right, you go right. Society goes wrong. You go wrong.

00:07:30--> 00:07:34

Society's heading to the Hellfire you go along with them.

00:07:35--> 00:07:37

And you feel good about it.

00:07:38--> 00:07:53

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us seriously, he said letter corno ima and asked an international accent on what Inessa to do not be a copycat. Do not be a person

00:07:54--> 00:08:01

who has no say in their life. Like you do what other people do, if they do good, you do good. If they do bad, you do bad.

00:08:03--> 00:08:04


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

Because Allah tells us in the Quran,

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

Allah tells us in the Quran, a very important feature of our human life is the reason why we were brought here in this life, where you spend time playing,

00:08:22--> 00:08:27

eating, meeting, watching, entertaining,

00:08:28--> 00:08:34

sleeping, chatting, and talking, playing video games,

00:08:35--> 00:08:42

watching YouTube and Facebook and all this social media chatting and gossiping and talking and killing time.

00:08:46--> 00:08:51

The reason you were brought here, and you were given time here in this life,

00:08:52--> 00:09:08

is that you were given a trust. You were given a responsibility. And the mission, you have yourself cannot make time. You cannot create time. You cannot bring something into life,

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

let alone yourself.

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

You were given all that.

00:09:15--> 00:09:18

Because there is a mission that you were assigned to.

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

And that's what you're given the time.

00:09:23--> 00:09:28

Sometimes you work sends you on a mission on a business trip, they give you on budget.

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

This budget is not yours to spend as you wish.

00:09:36--> 00:09:39

The budget is there to fulfill the purpose of the business trip.

00:09:43--> 00:09:47

You given the time, time off work because you're going to travel.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

You can't just go and spend your time in restaurants and cinemas and entertainment and forget about the meetings and the business that you're supposed

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

To Do

00:10:02--> 00:10:05

you were brought into this life in a business.

00:10:06--> 00:10:07

In a business.

00:10:09--> 00:10:17

Allah says in the Quran, Allah ecology and Estera would bada let's be luda from Allah Behati Giada. To whom? Womack and Omar, Teddy.

00:10:19--> 00:10:28

Those are the people Allah talks about the people who disbelieve. Those are the people who purchased misguidance

00:10:29--> 00:10:35

by giving up guidance, and thus their business transaction was a loss.

00:10:36--> 00:10:42

It ended up being a failure. Allah subhanaw taala instructs Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to address people and say what

00:10:44--> 00:10:52

I do look at Jonathan tungee coming in early, shall I not guide you to a business transaction to a business deal?

00:10:53--> 00:11:03

That if you do it, if you engage in it, you will be saved from a very painful punishment, that you worship on the law and obey the messenger etc.

00:11:05--> 00:11:23

Why does Allah talk in the Quran, saying Allah Kennedy in a star will hate the dunya bill. These are the people who purchased this dunya by paying the price of the Aquila its business. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says in an authentic hadith reported by the Imam Muslim.

00:11:26--> 00:11:30

What could elude Nasir Hardin for bear enough so who

00:11:32--> 00:11:38

from what a tip will her own mobile, aha, all of every human being every person

00:11:41--> 00:11:44

every day they go out into the market.

00:11:46--> 00:11:59

And they are putting themselves as the goods for business and purchase. You either make a good deal and when yourself or you make a bad deal and waste yourself.

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

This is what life is this is a summary of life. everyday you wake up you are in a business deal. You're in a in a business dynamic. You either make a good deal,

00:12:11--> 00:12:16

or you make a bad deal and you lose. But the problem is

00:12:18--> 00:12:24

the deal the result of the deal is eternal. Once you leave this world you can't change it

00:12:26--> 00:12:36

is forever. A concept we can never fathom in this life. Try to figure out what eternity really means your mind can't get around it.

00:12:37--> 00:12:46

Living Forever no end. So if it's misery the Hellfire is going to be with no end. Eternal, for good.

00:12:48--> 00:12:55

If it's an independent paradise in Jannah is going to be for good. There'll be no death. There is no end for that.

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

And what makes

00:13:03--> 00:13:22

a good business person stand out from a bad business person is that they take their business seriously. And word is this sense of taking things seriously where does it come and come from? It comes from a very important concept called in the Quran, the man trust

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

a man

00:13:25--> 00:13:54

Allah Subhana Allah says in manator, ALLAH SubhanA wa T will all be will zhiban For a beginner, a young millionaire What a shock on me and how Hammond had insulin in Ghana lumen Jehovah we have offered the trust, the Amana the mission, the responsibility, we have offered that to the heavens to the earth, these great massive, gigantic creatures of Allah.

00:13:56--> 00:14:01

We have offered them that trust of responsibility being accountable.

00:14:02--> 00:14:09

Being given something to use it at your disposal, but you will be held accountable you're questioned about it.

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

So was offered to the skies.

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

Bay declined. There was too scared to take it to the earth

00:14:21--> 00:14:27

was too scared to take it the mountains too scared to take it who took it on? Man.

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

Every one of us will take it.

00:14:32--> 00:14:33

I'll deal with it.

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

I can handle that.

00:14:37--> 00:14:47

And we're living the consequences now. So when you wake up every day, you are in a business setting.

00:14:48--> 00:14:50

You have been given some assets

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

and they are easily depreciated because every day that passes, the value goes down the amount goes down

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

As it has an bacillary probably Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah what are the you know, said them in nama into yam, Coulomb. They have a Yeoman, the hubba babyc Olson of Adam, you are a number of days you will really your reality is a bunch of days, every day that passes on, part of you has gone forever.

00:15:21--> 00:15:22

That's who you are.

00:15:23--> 00:15:35

Because this is the Amana, you were given this time that you have on this earth was given to you by Allah, it belongs to Allah, Allah gave it to you to do something with it. And he told you what to do with it.

00:15:37--> 00:15:43

So when you said five 610 12 hours playing video games,

00:15:44--> 00:15:46

whose time are you using?

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

Your company's time?

00:15:51--> 00:15:56

You can't be sitting in the office playing video games. Why? Because if your supervisor catches you,

00:15:57--> 00:16:09

you're getting a deduction, or you're getting fired. Why? Because that's the company's time, not your time. That's the company's assets. They're paying for it. Right? You are here on unless time.

00:16:11--> 00:16:15

So when you say I have time to kill, what are you killing your assets.

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

You're wasting what you are given. There is something you have to do, you're wasting the business transaction. The profit is right in front of you straightforward, but you're deciding to look sideways.

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

And that's what most of us do with our life.

00:16:34--> 00:16:43

So on the Day of Judgment, now, we live in heedlessness, we kidding ourselves, we fooling ourselves with what entertainment distractions.

00:16:46--> 00:17:01

So we're not feeling good on the day of judgment we will face we will stand face to face with facts, the truths, we will recognize the time that we have is not ours. It's always time. We are here on Allah's terms, not our terms.

00:17:03--> 00:17:15

The body that you were given the faculties in this body, the senses, the intelligence, everything that you have, is from Allah, it was given to you to do a business transaction.

00:17:18--> 00:17:23

But on the business trip, you're spending it in the nightclub. That's what's happening.

00:17:24--> 00:17:29

That's what most of us are doing. Or all of us are doing to a certain degree.

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

So on the Day of Judgment, the degree will be the regret will be immense.

00:17:38--> 00:17:47

And this is why Allah subhanaw taala describes the day of judgment as yo moto ha Boone, the day when the foolishness of man

00:17:48--> 00:18:06

will become apparent. The fact that we have deceived ourselves will become apparent. That's why again, the Prophet SAW Selim says in an authentic hadith, near Mitanni, Melbourne and female cathedral meanness to great blessings. Most people, you know, lose them foolishly.

00:18:08--> 00:18:16

People miss out on them foolishly their wisdom, when these are valuable acetyl ferok Good health and time.

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

You are here on a mission. You're not here on your terms. You can't set the terms. That's why you are called Abbot slave. All of us are slaves. A slave does not set terms.

00:18:31--> 00:18:35

You don't set terms. You know what a worker doesn't set terms.

00:18:36--> 00:18:41

When you work, you have to obey your boss, you have to work on that terms. You don't like it out of it.

00:18:44--> 00:18:57

You are here on almost terms, but we want to make create, we want to make our own terms and who deceived us into this Shavon because he wanted things to run according to his terms. When Allah created Adam, he got jealous,

00:18:58--> 00:19:24

envious, hateful, Allah said to the angels, including Chapin, who was with them, Allah said prostrate before Adam. He said, No, I'm better than him. What about me? And you hear this a lot today talk about something you're talking about an issue we're talking about problem says, What about such and such? What about people like this? What about me, that she finds approach to things?

00:19:26--> 00:19:31

What about me? I'm better than him, shape unwanted things on his terms.

00:19:33--> 00:19:35

So he was expelled of Allah's mercy.

00:19:36--> 00:19:53

And he was cursed till the Day of Judgment. And he said, I shall destroy humans, all of those that you wanted to honor I shall destroy them destroy him how? The same way he destroyed himself. He sort of Moses in his image, so we act defiantly to Allah.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

But again, when we have a sense of religiosity, what we do we do it in more subtle ways.

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

So we resort to distraction. We're not openly defiant to Allah, but we resort to distractions. distractions like what so many things look alike around in life. It's so much distractions. Everyone has some interests. Everyone has some things that they are attached to. Depending on your age group, what generation you're from, what your background is your personal differences, but everyone is doing what everyone else is doing. And we have given up on the responsibility, the sense of responsibility and Allah says in the Quran clearly Wakulla insane in enzyme now Hatha Yoga who figure oh no

00:20:39--> 00:20:49

one no curricula who will multi parametric eater but your common Shura, and every person we have tied the weight of their fates around their neck.

00:20:51--> 00:21:00

How you should live your life and watch the outcome of your life is is your responsibility. Your feet is your responsibility.

00:21:01--> 00:21:07

We have given that to you to shape it, to work towards it.

00:21:08--> 00:21:50

The fact that you follow everyone else, you will end up like the people of the Hellfire Hakuna who Duma Alka Iliyan we used to do and see and see what everyone else was saying. And the Prophet SAW salem said about the disbelievers in the grave the first night in the grave, when they were out when they are asked member of book who's your Lord, who would say ha ha Landry? I don't know. Samir to NASA, Pune, che and for cool too. I heard people say something I sent. So you can't give up that response. I mean, you can fool yourself into saying I'm not responsible, I have something else to do. I have to make more money, I have to have some good time. I have to spend time with my friends,

00:21:50--> 00:21:51

I have to enjoy my youth.

00:21:54--> 00:22:07

I have to close this game. Right? I have to move on to the next one. I have to do this, I have to do that. The only thing you have to do is to worship Allah. That's the only thing you really have to do and whatever follows from that.

00:22:09--> 00:22:10

But we fool ourselves.

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

So we were not conscious of that sense of responsibility. We've buried it with layers of heedlessness.

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

And all of that is primed by SharePoint.

00:22:28--> 00:22:30

So Allah says your feet

00:22:31--> 00:22:40

is upon you, your response will be questioned on the Day of what is the day of judgment about what is he said about? What is this whole account thing about? What is it

00:22:41--> 00:22:43

you will be asked about every simple thing.

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

Everything Allah gave you

00:22:48--> 00:22:53

before your birth to now you will be asked about it. What did you do with it?

00:22:56--> 00:23:06

What did you do with it? Definitely Amanda Lee Hola, Maya Punjabi Allahu Anhu says, couldn't donate money in sha Allah Hi, yo, multi multi D one and sorry, innocent numeric Deewana.

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

Everything, every gift you're given.

00:23:13--> 00:23:20

You will be asked about it on the Day of Judgment. Where did you get it from in 18? Where FEMA? Where did you get it from? How did you use it?

00:23:21--> 00:23:35

You had five seconds. You had five seconds of free time. What did you do with it? You will be asked about it. The disbelievers would say on the Day of Judgment. Maddie had al Kitab Vila Nova de Rosario rotten when akebia rotten ill

00:23:37--> 00:23:44

you know what's it with this book that it leaves nothing, small or big except that it is recorded in it

00:23:48--> 00:23:57

that's responsibility. That's the gift you've given. So life is not a privilege. It's a responsibility. It's accountability. Wake up in the morning

00:23:59--> 00:24:02

and make sure you're going to strike today and good business to

00:24:03--> 00:24:14

make a profit with Allah subhanaw taala that's the only way to go about it any day that passes without you making progress that you will regret it on the Day of Judgment Apollo holy cow that was Dr. Allah al.

00:24:29--> 00:24:35

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayidina Muhammad in via ad he was heard here Jemaine.

00:24:37--> 00:24:46

It's very important for every believer, every believer to wake up to this fact. This is what by the way, what Allah described in the Quran as a hafla

00:24:48--> 00:24:54

primarily refers to this. You go unconscious of this prime fact of life.

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

You have so what's the people you know when people say what's

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

This steps, you automatically relegating that responsibility to someone else, you figure it out for me, right? And make it easy for me. How is this going to help you on the Day of Judgment?

00:25:13--> 00:25:15

You have to do everything you can

00:25:16--> 00:25:24

started with one, waking up to the fact of this life and your responsibility in it. And this that it's a serious business.

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

Just wake up to the fact

00:25:27--> 00:25:37

and bask in that fact. Spend time just living reflecting, contemplating this fact. And what are the consequences, what it means about your lifestyle.

00:25:38--> 00:25:43

Let it simmer, let it sink in, until it gets hold of you.

00:25:45--> 00:26:05

And then that's gonna give you so much drive, to start looking for the knowledge. How Allah sent you the Quran, read the Quran, read the Quran, Allah tells you about the responsibility Allah tells you about himself. He tells you what he wants from you. He tells you what he wants you to avoid. He tells you all these things.

00:26:08--> 00:26:28

But you know what, we don't want to read the Quran. We want an imam to figure it out for us, we want to teach you to figure it out for us. We want that celebrity to, you know, find out for us. You can outsource your mission in life, it just doesn't work. Because if someone does it, they get the reward, you will miss out on it.

00:26:29--> 00:26:38

If you are too busy doing things that are not your mission, to the point that you outsource your mission, how do you expect to make it on the Day of Judgment?

00:26:39--> 00:26:49

So it's important to wake up to that. It's as simple as this as simple as being honest and sincere with Allah taking your life seriously. Stop doing what everyone else does.

00:26:51--> 00:27:06

Think Allah gave us a mind to think with Allah gave us this inquisitive nature, we're always questioning things, instead of you know, abusing that and going questioning does Allah exist? Like, as if this needs a proof?

00:27:07--> 00:27:08

As if this needs to prove

00:27:10--> 00:27:19

our existence is a miracle when we say we want a miracle. But Amira another miracle comes you become desensitized, you get used to it. And that's what we have done.

00:27:21--> 00:27:30

Instead of doubting Allah, doubt yourself and your way of life and that's where you need to put your inquisitive nature. That's where it's meant to be.

00:27:31--> 00:27:35

Figure out how to live a richer life. Truly richer life.

00:27:37--> 00:27:43

And Allah will help you. Allah is Allah is a shadow of Allah is thankful and grateful and Allah will help you if you're sincere.

00:27:44--> 00:27:50

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide us to the truth and to help us be obedient and submissive to him.

00:27:53--> 00:28:14
