We ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless him and his entire household all of them without exception. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless all the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam without exception. We also asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless all the messengers who came before, such as Jesus May peace be upon him, Abraham May peace be upon him, Moses May peace be upon him, and all the messengers and their companions, mela, bless them all. For D. They have struggled, strove, in order to get the goodness to the people in order to empower people with that which will take them to the promised life.
All the acceptance into the promised life and
at the best of all life for the D that is what we have been promised my brothers and sisters, I want to start off by saying something absolutely important. And that is when you came to this world. When you arrived here on Earth. What was your condition? What happened? As you were born? Do you remember?
Or have you witnessed someone coming to the center? The first thing that they do is cry.
If they don't cry, they are made to cry. Did you know that I'm sure from amongst you, there are midwives and there are those who are perhaps doctors, gynecologists, etc. And you would know that if a child is not
Cry, you tap the child in order to make it cry, the lungs would open, everything would happen. But more than that, for me, it's like a child saying, you know what, I've come home to her, and is all about crying, you're ready to cry for as long as you're alive. That's what it is. And then what happens? Truly, you cry, and you cry when you're hungry and you cry.
And you cry. When you are feeling too hot. And you cry, for example, when you are in fear. And you cry when there is a sound and you cry when you're not attended to. And as you grow older, you cry for the same reasons.
You can't because you cannot earn money, you cry because you don't have a spouse, because the spouse is probably in and you've got a problem and you cry because the environment is troubling you you cry for so many different reasons. You can't because there is war because people are dying, because we don't want to see people dying. We want to see DVDs, but we keep on crying because we don't see what we want to see. So this one is all about planning. It's all about challenges. From the moment you're born up to the time you die, you will be shedding tears. That is why we have the two year plan. And that is why our eyes need to be white from time to time. The one who sheds the tears for the right
reason is the one who will become the promised life.
So what is sharing the table? It's okay to cry when you're hungry. It's okay to cry when you are feeling it's okay to cry when you've lost a loved one. But have you ever cried out of the fear of Allah? Have you ever cried out of the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala Have you ever cried out of anticipation that you would like to go to the promised life where there will be no more tears?
Because this is why there is a heartbeat that I've spoken about so many times. And I'm sure many of you would know about it with
quite clearly about seven categories of people
who will be achieving a specific VIP shade on the Day of Judgment.
a man or a woman who remembers his makeup sincerely, and sheds a tear or the highest of food with tears. This is so beautiful, that it speaks about the high status of the person not to cry. But the person whose eyes were filled with the tears not yet dropped down.
And thereafter, obviously, the tears would drop. But once your eyes filled with tears, and they overflow.
Already, you deserve a special place in the promised life. From the moment you die. Allah subhana wa Jalla takes care of you.
Allah speaks about the best of those who see.
We all talk. When we were born, there was no speech, but we still cry. When we go home, we see but we still cry
and feel that something is lacking. So Allah says Who is the one who uses his speech in the best way? This is very sad. Before your analysis, who is there better in speech than the one who calls towards Allah, meaning you call towards the maker? When I'm calling you towards Allah or you are calling me towards Allah? Who are you actually calling me towards you or pulling me towards the one who made me that's all you are reminding me to say you know what? You were somewhere before you were born, and you are going somewhere after you die. And this life is very temporary. Don't be lost in this life. But rather focus on that which will lead to returning to your maker in a way that you
don't regret how you spend your life. Maybe spend our lives doing what we want to do. How many of us spend our lives doing what the one who made us wants us to do?
Ask yourself, do I just do what I wanted to do? Or do I do what the one who made me wants to do because I am definitely going to go back to him when a person passes away. What do we say? We say?
What does that mean? We belong to Allah. If I'm 40 years old, for example, where was I 41 years ago? With one side
Where will I be? If I were to live for 80 years, for example, for 70 years, where will I be after 18 years? I need to think about it, I need to consider the fact that I must worship my maker alone in order for me to get somewhere that he has promised. So this is why we say who is better in speech and the one who reminds you that you're going back to who you're
the one who calls towards Allah, and himself he does.
A lot of the times, we wake our children up for Salah, we want our children to quit smoking, but we are smoking ourselves. We want our children to read. We don't read ourselves. We want our children to be modest, modest ourselves, we want our children to be protected.
But we have not protected ourselves from the morality How is that my brothers and sisters, this is why we will continue. Yes, you are allowed to keep on reminding them but remind yourself as well, hey, I need my child to become a better person, let me become a better person first. Let me become a better person. First of all, let me become a better person hand in hand with my child. And sometimes our children will remind us to turn back to Allah
salatu salam, what a powerful example of his He is the one who reminded his father, he saw his father doing so many things, and he tells his father,
all my knowledge has come to me that it did not come to you. So follow me. And I will guide you to the straight mom, who is saying this to a child who say to his father, and the
answer that we can remember that when our children correct us we should not feel bad, we should take that correction. We should understand that this gift of Allah.
So my beloved brothers and sisters in this beautiful city of Zamboanga. Remember that our data says the best speech is from the one who calls towards for remind about Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Be truthful, be honest, worship Allah alone, try your best to reach out to the rest of the creatures of Allah, of being a promoter of peace and tolerance, coexistence and goodness Do not be a promoter of violence, hatred, killing and intolerance. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding.
So Allah says, and the same person says I am from among those who surrenders What is the meaning of Muslim Muslim means one who surrenders to the command of Allah. So there is no point in not surrendering to the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Yet you want others to surrender to the command of Allah? No, you need to say I'm a Muslim, and you need to meet you need to me. So if we are we and we are posting by name only, but our actions are not according to Islam, it's time to change that my brothers and sisters live forever. You have to return to Allah. If you think you are the only one who has problems and therefore it's driving you away from Allah, I want you to consider
And repeating them, if you think you are the only one with problems, and those problems are driving you away from Allah, because you know, some people are sick and some people are looking for a job. Some people are looking for a wife or a husband. Some people are looking for example, to have children and they don't have children. And it's already been eight years, 10 years, 12 years, 15 years, Allah bless you. Some people need to cure you. So sometimes a lot of the time.
So what happens is people become depressed, they become sad because they don't realize that
I have had a friend of mine who lost his children after he had those children after a long, long time. And he lost him in a car crash. And he told me I used to make a lot of brand new children for many years had I known that this was going to happen I will do what you know is better for me.
But I still told him, Allah knew that this is better for you. So he did you have to bear twice, two times. One is the fact that he did not have to for so long and two is the fact that a lot of them away after giving them to you
So Allah loves you enough to give you two examinations, you qualify from high school and now you're qualified from university as well. Don't become upset when you have more tests in your life. Many of us when we need a job, and they tell us that you need a certain certificate or a certain qualification, what do we do? We go out, we work, we pay fees in order to write the exam, and we make sure we work hard. And then we want to pass and we want to get a certificate to say that I wrote the examination. Now, I'm qualified to get this job. Well, you want the job of the gentleman and paradise has the promised life and the goodness in the year after you will be tested. You don't
have to pay fees alone test one after the other one examination you must pass How can you pass the exam?
So the point I want you to consider is, if your test is tearing you away from Allah, you need to know the people who follow other faiths who have the same case. Or even worse, sometimes people say, you know, I'm a Muslim, I've been sick for so long. And here there are people, for example, from a satanic cult or any other faith, and they say they will pray for me and I will let me go and follow them while you're failing your tests. Because I have seen people from the same faith who have the same sickness for 20 years, but they have stayed in their own faith. What about you?
I recall once I visited the hospital, and this is the true story, and the young person said, I think I'm going to change religion because Islam I will not be cured. I pray to Allah for so long. I said, hang on my brother, I want you to consider the fact that that religion you are planning to go into now there are people with your disease, and your disease can I show you who they are and where they are, and they have been suffering the diseases for longer than you but the difference is you have the mercy of Allah for the promised life. Even if this life is not 100% nobody's life will ever be 100% until you get to paradise. I'm sure you've heard me say in the past, that a paradise loses its
value or paradise will lose its value if this world was free of problems.
If Allah gave you whatever you wanted, what's the point of giving me gentlemen?
paradise because I already have a paradise yet nothing goes wrong, even the richest and the happiness one day they will stop breathing, you know that?
Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most powerful from amongst us one day they will be helpless completely, many people will have to carry them to the grave.
Who were they were powerful they use to harm people more than to serve people. So don't be fooled by the devil. Similarly, who does a lot more You and I are the messengers. May peace be upon them, definitely the messengers.
He wants to give messages to messages.
Mankind as well he chooses whom he wants to be messengers, made it easy upon them all and made it easy upon us all as well.
So if these messages He made you
may peace be upon me, we know him as
crucially Have you heard that? We know him as the best of creation, the most noble of all prophets, who is he?
For a moment.
He went through hardship he went through difficulty he went through people who tried to harm him. He went to people who made him bleed, he went through people who threw stones at him, they laughed at him. He went through people who accused him he lost his children while he was alive, all of them besides one, he lost all of his children, all of them besides one who passed away after he passed away.
He lost his parents he was an orphan. What else think of anything negative to Panama. He was the happiest the most noble the most love to Allah up to today we hear his name, we say peace be upon him. Allahu alayhi wa sallam.
When he was passing away, he tells his wife
or his daughter Fatima
that your father will not teach anything after to be loved.
This is what Allah says about the messengers.
Allah says regarding the promised life and you gentlemen
Do you really think you're going to go to Paradise? Do you really think you're going to go to Paradise? That's a question.
And he continues to say,
Do you really think that you are going to paradise? The following things have not come to you?
Do you really think you are going to paradise and the following things have not yet come to you? What is he talking about? This is what he says.
Do you think that you are ready to paradise, and it has not yet come to you?
Before you they weren't affected by hardship or difficulty, warfare in security, and they were shaken up to the believers and the messengers from amongst them had to ask when is the help of Allah going to come? Allah says, at the help of allies very near
this is means those before us with tested, they were shaking, they went through hardship, they went through difficulty, they asked Allah Allah, when is your help coming in, we need your help
to come in. And Allah says, Don't worry.
Sometimes the solution to our problem, we will.
And we have five centimeters left, can we just give up and walk away? Have you done, you would have gone through the tunnel. So don't lose hope, because you don't know how much is left to get to the other side. And when it comes to paradise for as long as you're breathing, you will be able to if you do the right things.
Now, this is just an introduction to my topic by the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Because I would like to concentrate on what comes afterwards. But I have to start this way in order for us to appreciate what comes later. I cannot speak about paradise in a way that we will say, Oh, yeah, you know, that's one of those things you see a lot in my brothers and sisters. It's only if you know how you were born. And the reality of this life, that you will understand the sweetness of the hereafter. Look when a person passes away, do they die crying?
Or you see them just lying there smiling. They say rest in peace. Have you heard that? They seem to be
laying there, no movement, nothing. No crying, you can slap smack poke, do what you want. Sorry. Don't do that. Please. I'm just giving an example. Okay. You can actually say three swear straight. You're not harming men anymore. It's over. They won't cry. Some people cremate the three minutes what happens? They burn. And this person is just a beaver. mela protect us from them. I always wonder what would actually happen if we really felt that. What if a loved one is asked to even
and those people cannot yell anymore, but they can hear what's going on. This is why let's see what we were taught from the time of Allah Allah, Allah wa sallam to very respectfully as soon as possible, and to grant them the rights that needs to be fulfilled.
easy for us, that really takes us away. So when a person passes away, that's the time they are at peace. They're smiling, they're gone. What's happening to them?
We have hope.
We have hope.
You know, something came to my mind. We have something in common.
You know, they say it was a ship. Okay. There was a ship.
And this ship was sinking. Okay. So what happened is, they needed to throw some people out of the ship in order to make light so that the ship does not see it's too heavy, too many people. So they decided how are we going to stop it's going to be a big problem because so many people will be fighting. We can't say the oldest we can't say the youngest we can say the strongest. We can't say so let's think about something the captain says. Of all
The people and where they come from. So I will start off
so when he starts off and right at the top those nations starting with me those areas starting with a he started I don't want to say the name but anyway you can think of any names and he started killing people. And you and I are so happy because we come from
ABC by the time they get to about are we already happy with him and Mashallah.
That is the common factor we have handelian. So we were saved by one by the alphabet.
That's just on a lighter note, may Allah save
us, gentlemen. I mean,
so my brothers and sisters,
if you spend your life in a beautiful way, even though you have gone through challenges, you went through hardship, Allah did not promise you that you're not going to go through hardship, you will go through tough times people will say things about you. Or about you my own example, whenever I go through difficulty, I asked myself, did you
go through this? Up to today? 100% of the time, the answer is yes. 100% of the time, he goes through hardship. people making his life difficult. Yes. People say he was after this. He was after that. He went to power. He went to this you want his name and fame. They say everything about him. Don't worry, you are a nobody compared to the messengers may be upon them. If they struggle, you need to expect to struggle even more. Allah knows you and I are weak. He does not make us go through more than what he may just go through. This is why Allah, Allah,
Allah, when Allah loves the worshiper,
take a look at those who have bigger tests. They are those who are closer to Allah. One of the reasons is, every time you go through a test, you are getting closer to Allah, look at us for a second here. When you're young, and you're okay and you're growing up and you're healthy, and your parents are taking care of everything. Sometimes you are weak with your friend, you are weak.
As you grow older, and now your examination, the main exam comes what happens for the first time in your life you are reading Salah, because you want to say Oh Allah, Oh Allah, I had an examination helped me.
Allah brought us close to him through an examination. If that was not the case, you may even call out to Allah that when you grow old, and suddenly your knee starts failing, what happens? The doctor says, We tried everything we saw, but we don't know.
Why? Because you have a problem.
brought you close to him? By giving you a problem for you? It's a problem for him. He loves you because he says, hey, my wishes. He were crying for me.
He was sincerely calling to me. No.
No, no, no, no, no, no.
This is what I love you.
I promise you if you kill me,
for the rest of my life, have you heard that?
Promise while you're promising because you know, Allah loves you in that condition. And you want to give me the permission to be a good boy and being a good girl. But I want to tell you when I finished I still going to be a good girl. Good boy. And guess what? The next day?
Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Did you see how Allah brings you closer to him through problems? Did you see that?
And if you know why I'm lucky to sometimes get those issues and problems and difficulties that is.
so amazingly, as the person grows older, and they happen to pass away the most difficult things that happened to human beings on earth, bear and take birth is so difficult, not only for the mother, even for the child, but the beauty is the child doesn't remember, it was so hard, even for the child. And the lungs inflate and the eyes open and there is a change and you don't know and some people die in the process. And so many things happen but you don't know because it uses fear of the unknown. I want to give you an example.
Twins in the womb are talking to each other.
One is say, look out cohesion. Wow. Yeah. Do you know, I wonder is life after the womb.
And the other one says no ways they can't be. This is the life man, this is the life. We're happy here it's warm, we're turning and twisting, our food is available. Everything is okay. We're enjoying ourselves, we are living in a beautiful place. And that's it. It's just the two of us to me.
And the other one says, No, I'm sure there has to be something beyond the sky just to be like this. We're just here for nine months and nine months after that, there must be something there has to be. And the first one is saying, Are you stupid? Are you the fool? How can you think like that we are here there is nothing after this. It's over. We are just here, we can enjoy what we want. And then after what will happen, we are finished.
And suddenly, 90 miles comes and they are getting bigger and bigger. And guess what they can't fit anymore. And now they're saying well, I wonder what's going to be next.
When we die, it's over. Listen carefully. This is a powerful example. They say we're going to die and it's finished. We're going to die.
And suddenly they are born
into the real life. And you know what happens?
is such a big place. And guess what? There are so many others, just like us it was hospital man. Whoo.
it has the most meaning the first foundation.
I'm sure we heard that right. Why you are reminded from the beginning. Your purpose here is to come to salon to come to success, to declare a life the greatest to believing alive to believe in your message.
hey, sometimes, we never believed that we were going to live another life. For us. It was just a wall. And we thought we were going to die and other guys.
were largely my brothers and sisters in life is exactly the same. There are people who say only this life we're going to die. And
there is something bigger and better that is waiting for us. One day when you're old and you're 80 and you cannot walk and you are 90 and you cannot talk and you're 100 and you cannot hear and you are 110 and now you cannot see
you cannot move.
What do you say Allah Take me away whenever I go there. Because now you're
a true believer as
I know you're taking you to a better place my brothers and sisters, whether you must see whether you are eating, whether you are struggling with cancer, with AIDS, whatever the disease is, to cure, never lose hope in the mercy of Allah up to the last minute. Even if you're suffering in pain, you must still be smiling or lie You know, you're giving me something better. You must have up to the last minute, you must remember that those are the demons.
Suddenly, you guide the angels separates the soul from the body and you are swimming straight in. You are swimming straight into a beautiful life. And then you say Wow,
so Panama, Mashallah. What is
where do we pay?
And you're so excited. That's the promise.
That's the promise, a lot of promise.
And this is why
Allah speaks about that promise life and Allah says two things are promised not just one, two days are promised what is the heaven for those who deserve it.
And you know what else is also promised for those who don't
And as for those who remind that this is what Allah says, was the
seeking of the crowds, all the prophets. Allah says the people who will be entering Hellfire will
when they are driven to Hellfire,
Guess what you will get to install and embedded into the door will be open for them. So you know, when criminals are going into a jail, they walk to the jail and then when they are asked the jail, the door of the jail opens, they are letting in and then the door closes, because they're criminals.
Whereas when a person is going to paradise or to a good place, the door is already open, and it's waiting for them and they go in and the door is open, and they are excited. That's the difference. So Allah says, The people of hell when they will be driven to hell in groups, and they will get to each door, the door will be open for them. The key base of the door of Hellfire will ask them a question, what is the question?
One day, you will have to continue living your life in such a bad way. Did anyone come to you to remind them
have this meeting today?
They would say
we were alive people came to tell us to stop all the battles we will do.
you were promised, this is the promised life for you.
Then Allah says, was seen.
As for those who are conscious of those who are conscious of Allah, those who try to please allow those who are conscious of their makeup and where they are going, they have been promised something.
In groups, in groups.
When they get to the store, they will find it they will get into the door while the door will be open
the doors of heaven
are the center of it. $7 Why? Because of a loss of mercy is greater than his condition.
Someone asks you how many years of age how many years of health why because he is great, he has more space in heaven, He has a greater heaven they have
so what do they
me, oh, PC upon you you have done that which was good. Congratulations, as you would say.
So now you can get into here forever and ever. And you know what?
So these people who will be entering paradise now lawmakers from among them,
they will be saved. As a response to this.
The first point and hamdulillah we praise Allah, all praises due to Allah who has been
fulfilling the promise he made to us. Allah has promised you a second life. You will make him the day he gives you that like a life that has no problems, no issues, no difficulties, no hardship.
Allah says, Here is the light. And you say thank you for being truthful to me. Your promise you everything you want us on earth, and
we can move as we wish. As we wish.
Another point my brothers and sisters when you came to the UK with nothing, not even your clothes,
new you were born medically.
No one came out of his mother's womb to the Levi's jacket and a pair of sunglasses
and a little iPhone No matter how much your mother was on the phone, you didn't come with a phone
so we came at Henry
Guess what we will need? Exactly. So what is in the middle, your DS, only nothing else? What did you do? Do? Nothing else, what did you do?
That's what makes the difference. Everyone can without anything Everyone needs without eating. I don't know how to release, they used to say that the Chinese used to be made with all their
belongings as well, with all their money until one day I was packing. And he said, I will just catch all the money. Let me put my check, and you give me the cash.
But I think that's not true. Actually, someone sent me an email is not true. But the example is valid for us to say, if you are betting with your items,
people will see great pictures from the people of other faiths.
Because they are very good at a nice suit and clothing because they don't have the clothing.
They prey on the coffin they take on the clothing and the following morning.
So give us in Islam, you know you're allowed to go home with a shower? Where are you going back home where wherever I came from my address, my true address, the address you have
is only your address for a short period of time. After that you get a permanent address.
So Allah promises to us,
those who will go to heaven, those who will go to hell, and those who will go to hell for a short period of time
to get to heaven, may Allah subhanho wa Taala
never lose hope he will give you He will give you a challenge. He is so merciful, trust me, he will give it to you by the word of Allah have opened Try, try. So, what will I get now in this promised life? Let me tell you
narration of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he says Allah Subhana Allah says,
Allah, Allah, Allah,
I have prepared, Allah says, I have prepared for my good worshipers. For who? For my good worshippers, ma law in law, which no AI has ever seen.
that is have ever heard or heard of
that did not cross the heart of a human being in our language that didn't even cross your mind. That's what we say in English. If you cross your mind in heaven
Think hard because I want to touch upon that sometimes is misunderstood.
If you cross your mind so nice remember is better than that.
If you heard about something so beautiful in heaven is better than
if you saw something really nice. Remember in heaven is better than that. Why? Why? I tell you why. Because
glass glasses from scuffs
apply pressure and it becomes glass. Right? What else gold, gold is from the mountains dig and start separating and you get certain stones and they will actually be gold. Asked me in South Africa and Zimbabwe we have the most gold perhaps in the world.
What else platinum, what is the same thing and you go into mining? What else? Oh, I need a leather jacket? Where is the leather from? It's from a cow.
What else do you think you want to take all that to heaven? in heaven. I want a leather jacket.
Because you know what I mean? You'll get something better than a leather jacket.
I always used to give an example of my son now he's old but now when he was young, he used to say that he and
I can't afford it number one and number two is we don't need it here. It's not a practical car. It's not a practical vehicle. So he says I will have one
you will have the worst thing is
people will be just flying straight down the
road. There's no tar What are you gonna do with it?
I want to tell you something my brothers and sisters to show you how this world is actually a deception Can I
Can I show you something?
Okay, the average age of new people here is perhaps 25 to 35 average age
when you were perhaps seven years old, 80 years old. Okay. And even those who are older, you will understand this example better. What was the best car? That was known? At the time? best car, for example. So someone might say it was a mercedes, mercedes. Okay, what was the Mercedes? It was called a 300. t, you know? 300 t. Okay, that was in 1985. Okay. It was when, say, 1985 there was a car, it was a very, very nice car, you can go and Google it. 300 t Mercedes 9085. googling? Nobody today, once that come how many years? It's been, it's just been 2530 years. No one wants to come. They won't even even if you pay him to take if they don't want to.
I can't afford The sky.
Okay, now they don't want it. Now they don't want it. So today, what is the car you want this Bugatti, for example, or you want the new Mercedes v class or you want the S Class Mercedes? Not to say I'm a man, but it is a good car.
You know what? before you die, you will make your own choice. Do you know why there will be something totally different life moves a lot is showing him that hey, things here will change. You won't like what you chose for yourself.
Because everything is updated? If you say look, if you give me an iPhone six plus.
I won't ask you for anything else while lying next year, you will be asking her for an iPhone seven.
Why? Because it's outdated. You boasted for a while and it's over. But Allah says in German, it is forever. Why you are thinking you get
my favorite verse, one of my favorite verses, Allah says, promised life
the soul desires will be his or hers. What do you think of it in front of you? Before you even know if you're
thinking of some juice of some fruit in my mouth, why?
This is my place. I'm the boss and the king of my paradise here.
Allies the Lord indeed, but you allies, honestly. Because you live your life. When you are. I want to go, I want to go. I want to
remember those two in the room that I told you talk to each other. Imagine if one says look, you know what? I? This is literally in
this life, except for in this room. There is nothing beyond the womb. Now we are struggling. We are suffering. And it's becoming.
Let me hear you and you kill me. I tell you with this umbilical cord around and
you die. So the one dies and the other one. No one is there. Because the other guys already did. What will happen? One will be born when he
killed himself. He didn't know what was coming. He lost out. Did you get the point?
in your life, if you get fed up of your life, you want to kill yourself. You want to cause harm, you lose the real life. You follow the point?
It's a very powerful point. This is why I lost this while I
was at home.
Suicide is prohibited. Allah is merciful upon you, no matter what you are going to do. Suicide is not an option. You cannot change the bond.
Allah knows there is something better waiting for you wait for love time.
This is why you know when there is a premature birth, a lot of the times the life of those individuals is in danger.
Because they didn't come out before the time, that medical reasons we might even be able to apply exactly the same example but the example I'm giving us whether they do things to harm themselves. It's a problem. It's a major issue. It's a disaster. Don't do that.
I want to give you another example.
Have you ever had a nightmare when you're sleeping?
So you are sleeping in the dormitory for example. They are your colleagues sitting also there. One person is smiling.
He has nice food and roasted chicken and a deep fried cheese with nice salt and beautiful trees and so on. And he's been eating
and the other one
Somebody just shot me.
Somebody shot me. Well, when they shot you did what happened? You woke up?
I'm okay. Mashallah. So now what happened?
The one sleeping right next to you was
suffering and you were enjoying something that was very long.
So when you suddenly get up from something that was seeming so real, but it was not.
In your dream, it's very real. In my dream, I have eaten food.
I have had so many things happened to me. That was so lovely. And I really thought it was so true.
There's nothing. I remember the example of a young boy in his sleep. He was being told, look, you know what? I want to give you a gift. He says, What do you want to give me? Just I want to give you $1,000? No, I want 2000. So here is 1000 to 2000. And while he's arguing he woke up, when he woke up, he says there is not 1000 there is not 2000.
That's not how it works. When it comes to data analysis.
dies, he dies. The person will say Oh, Allah sent me back.
1000 Let me take 1000 losses, no way. It's not happening. No, it's too late you already in the hereafter. And that's it. So my brothers and sisters Don't be at a loss. Enjoy your dream while you can. When you get up to reality, it is a totally different life.
Totally different. How do you feel caught up into the real life, one day when you die, you will get into the real life from the stream that we are in right now known as the life of this world.
So I told you two things very scary. One is better the other day, when a person is born. It's really very strange. For everyone, it's painful. fear of the unknown, those two, they don't know where they are going. But when they came, was there any regrets? Do you regret it that you were born? No, I was born. While I tell you if you're a true believer, you will not regret it when you die.
It's difficult, but you have to go through it, you have no option just like you were born. You have to die.
very clearly in so many places, we created you and he mentioned the stages he says medical record to be born and after that,
we will cause you to die. As simple as that.
So you need to be ready for this. Now when people start arguing, what am I going to get there? What am I going to get? What am I gonna do? I want to tell you.
There are several categories of people, some people do nice,
out of fear that we might go to hell. So we want to be protected from some people do good deeds, and stay away from bad deeds out of hope to go into paradise
because they want to go to Paradise. Some people do need to stay away from baddies out of the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala the best is the third. But the other two are not wrong. They're not wrong.
I want to ask myself a question.
Did I fall into any one of those three categories? If the answer is no, well, please fall into one of the two goodies either out of
out of fear that you're going to have
prepare for the
data. And what will I get it? Everyone wants to ask the question.
The women they asked the question these men, they're going to get the food. What about me, my sister You are the whole What are you worried about?
Well, can I tell you a better answer than
a better answer than that is
When Allah says you will get what you want, he won't let you down. Never ever. Don't worry about what you will get.
Just know the fact that whatever you want
he will give it to you. The only condition is you need to be in Jenin you need to be in paradise. That's the only condition.
The problem is no Salah, no, no worship, no modesty, nothing good. And we still are asking about what am I going to do? My brother? Are you even going to go there in the first place?
If you're going to go there and working towards it, you're not wanting the truth is I am not worried. What am
I only worried about?
I am not worried. If you asked me, What do you want? When you go to Geneva, I said I don't want anything besides going into terminal when I go.
With this small brain of mine, I will only think of things that are not qualified to go into him.
You want to describe the food I want to tell you no matter what the scripture you have the hajikko han says in general will be better than your mind. Can you imagine? So? Don't worry.
My sisters, who will you be with? I'm not worried about that. Let me go to Gentlemen, I know when I go there if I don't want to be with someone I will never see his face again. You know, there was a man who died and his wife looked at his face after
the last time I was
But that's not how it should be you need to know Allah will not let you go alone.
Whatever you want, he will give you what you want. But you need to vote and see in general because in general Your heart will
your mind will be perfect. Your soul your being will be absolutely perfect. There will be perfection for now none of us are perfect. We all have defects and problems. Our brain is so small we cannot even see the gene people are listening to the source maybe or at least the angels who are here that may not scare you.
The angels who are here they are definitely here. We don't see why we are so willing within perfect Allah digit allow us to see I can't even see beyond a certain point because of how many people there. That's how willing we are. So don't worry when you go there. Allah will give it to you as you want it then
people ask well Will I be with my same husband even gentlemen?
My sister just alone.
okay. You guys will have my sister just said.
If you want and you think about it, you will get it but you know what? You will not think about certain things. You know sometimes you're going on holiday right? Beautiful honeymoon or something. And your friend messaged me send me photos. Don't worry. I'm going to do it. Don't worry. And when you go, it's so beautiful. You forget about everyone. Just you and your husband or your wife. And you are so excited you're enjoying your
I don't mean drinking alcohol. I'm talking about
A lot of fun and you forgot about your friends and when you are flying on your way back.
I forgot about that because
they go up very bad.
Hey, you know what?
You forgot them. Why wouldn't you
agree? It was so nice. It happens even when you go to the shop and you see a bargain. Everything is one 10th of the price. Buy one get 10 free. We go we forget about everyone.
You forgot about the whole world.
By the time I go we will lose everything you forgot to go
in gentlemen, you will forget about everything.
Gone, it's thrown away. Gold is nothing a lot of value for the premium. Otherwise
we're lucky to go to Google and go to YouTube. Search how gold is mined. All gold Penny you get a shot. It's just the dust like this and they start digging a little bit. There is a water table they get to for example they take a bit of a you know utensil, sometimes silver
Want to look at it Some people put a light on the sun and they start choking it and moving it and they see this they get
sick, they move in some have a mechanism.
And you get this and you actually
sand particles, you bring them together and you you put heat on it for the
apartment, small size. And that is what happened. Where did it come from? Does
it not even
know it won't be there? Trust me, it won't be a no go. No silver? No platinum, no cost? Nothing. Why? Because that was all a lie. You know? Nothing that I've seen.
It's not there.
Yes. My husband's not.
If through the same body, the same features the same person, the same attitude is not there. What will be there?
What a handsome guy.
And he speaks to you with so much respect. And he loves you. And he only looks at you.
Who are you?
That's what it is to have a love.
Amazing. Wow. You mean?
You're excited? Why? Because I told you, you will get what you desire you.
Your body of Virginia is gone. When he looks at you.
He doesn't even know what sounds to me because he's shocked and gone and delighted and happy. Wouldn't you like to be someone who no makeup is automatic.
you don't need to worry about weight, you don't need to worry about shape. You don't need to worry about size. You don't need to worry about health. You don't need to worry about attitude, you don't need to worry about anything. This is only human beings.
What about the other things?
Allah says each one of you will have a garden can I explain to you the size of the garden
there is a hadith which is common. I won't go through the whole thing but I want to go to parts of it. It says speaks about the last person any agenda, the last person to enter.
So when he after he was on for a while of you, ladies and gentlemen, now remember this, it can either be me or you all we have to be better than that. Because this is the worst guy. This is the last person to enter Paradise, the last one. So it's
the last. But if we are, this is what we will get.
So Allah says, He comes in, he says Hola. He comes out of Hellfire and so on and so forth. And then he says Allah just caught me
in the soul, you know, as the door opens, and he's so shocked and amazed, you know, and he sees a huge light. And he thinks there is a lot but that's just the angel. And he wants to be shocked because the angel charges I am the doorkeeper of heaven. And then he says oh all as he's going and he goes into his own garden and tells him Alaskan Oh, my wish.
Would you be happy? If we gave you whatever was completely
only for you, would you be happy?
Now what does that mean? Let me translate it means
whatever was there from the beginning? To the end of the day, would you be happy if we gave you all of that only for you which means all the golden all the silver and all the
Allies just asking is just asking a question.
So he looks at he says, Oh yes, I would be happy with that. I mean, it's too much for me are you if you just build me a house with a million dollars that's enough for me, you know that we don't need anything else? Maybe $500,000 every month inshallah it will
come to some challenge.
imagine someone's offering you orders only for you only yours. And he says yes. So Allah says, All my slave.
I will give you
in fact, he says yours
is not just one night. What did he
Has, but you have that.
multiplied by two multiplied by three multiplied by four, up to 10 times. It's only yours, and it is in heaven, which means it's not even
20 times. So you are one person, how much land do you have? Well, you have so much land that your mind will see and look up to the horizon. It's only yours. And even beyond the horizon, it's only so how big is he? I cannot describe what is in it.
What will be on my leg so much less? Well, it will just be a huge happy family. Only those you want to see will be there. Only those who want to be with it will be what will be on the land, whatever you want. I'm calling it land but that's the wrong word. Allah says
Misha Eb, one,
He says and gentlemen, they will be your beautiful
water that is neither salty nor hog ruthless in your garden. What is the meaning of gentlemen, it means a garden.
It means the garden in your water, rules of water.
No dirty, no nothing in your drinkable, not salty and not hard water.
And after that
ruthless of your fruit juice of your choice, fruit juices of your choice. Proper squeezed juice is of your choice. It's amazing. So suddenly, you're looking for certain fruits. Say for example, orange, say Apple say great. But the grape of Gemini is different. This is why Allah says When did the people have to see the food they want to think is that in terms of name, or maybe in terms of appearance, it will be totally different in terms of taste. And in terms of the other qualities.
Every time they are given something, they will keep to themselves. Oh, this is what we had yesterday. Well, this is what we had in the past. This is what we had had
You will never have the same thing twice in paradise unless you ask for it or you want it. Otherwise, every day will be better than the previous city. How do you want to go back?
So reviews of pure juice? And after that
milk? What type of milk?
From the cows? No, it's a session milk. It is white in color. Pure. It is quite a few of the tests. And in the look of it. It is a whole river. Imagine you go to the river here or the ocean or somewhere down between Zamboanga and as you're going on the boat with Anima and what do you notice, hey, this is 100 men. This is the water and you take it in your you put it in your mind.
You can imagine it
smooth, white, completely white and evaluate the speed both moving with that propeller
behind it and it's white upon white.
After a while they might be further down.
In goodness, it's just amazing. You can't imagine this. Allah says let your mind wander because when you go there, it's better than what your mind
if your mind thought about it, if your heart he crossed your mind. Hello. So today it will be
so when you look at your husband, your wife, your children, your parents and so on those are with you even some of your own
If Allah will grant us, gentlemen, may Allah granted to us. We will be peaceful, we will be at peace, we will be happy. We won't have bad qualities. Have you ever noticed in the forum? Allah, Allah speaks about pain. When it comes to Americans, there's no pain. There's nothing known as pain. There is no crying, never has spoken about crying in general, why you cried.
My brothers and sisters wouldn't be like this life, beautiful life, something that is promised to us in such an amazing way.
And this is what it says.
At the end of the first Allah, Allah says,
Allah will grant them in Jelena in paradise from all the fruits, anything they want. Anything is this. So don't lose hope. Don't fight about what you will have. What is more than what a lot, many times I have received questions many times, asking me, I want to go to heaven. Will my cats come with me?
Well, I'm not joking. People are so attached to that cat.
Whoo, my cat come to me. Now, I have a problem. Because if I say yes, I'm lying.
If I say no, she's depressed.
What's the point of going to China Mimi's number you come with me? What is the point of me is to come with me.
So I have a problem because you say yes to a lie. And you say no. So you know what you have to say?
When you get to China?
time, if you think of me? And you say oh,
that's the true answer. But you don't have to tell them that. You know what? When you go there, you won't ever, ever, ever think about me?
Because what you will have will be far better than D So
have you heard my brothers and sisters? Don't worry. You see? How
child Okay, first of all two? Gentlemen, that's what I've been saying today. I said it before. So let's go to gender first, when you are there, a lot of promises you whatever you think about. So you can think about it. Yes.
They will not beat the winds of heaven, they will. So someone will say
that in January is whatever you think about Can I tell you what, Allah will make you in such a way that you will never think about it.
You won't even know you won't be missing out as such, but you won't have it.
So when you go there, some people will think about certain things, some people will not think about it. And I've given you the examples. Just don't worry. The moral of today's lecture is, let's all work on to get into the promises more than we are worried about what is in the promised land. It is saying
work hard to get it. How do you work hard?
You wish to have a law alone.
You wish of Allah alone
and at the same time
you needed to do
anything else don't
worship Allah alone and do good
deeds that were taught by Mohammed Salah good and the deeds that were not taught by him are not good.
So let me read for you the first
the first way Allah speaks about the angels
and the angels telling me the believers
those who did
you have a beautiful place from a very forgiving No.
Have you ever heard that before?
Have you heard that before ever been in?
So many people
but this is me. It starts off like this.
Those who say
Allah, Allah Allah
my role is the one who made me.
So the first condition is those who say, My hobbies are Ma, then they are straight.
They are set fast, what is the fastest way to be on the same path we try your best to walk on the path there are
two qualities, what are the qualities in
those who says my hobbies Allah,
they will stay
before they die, that
angels will inform them when it comes down to them telling them
Don't be sad,
good news to you because of the promises live of Paradise and
you are promised.
We are your protectors in this world and in the next who are the protectors, Allah and Allah says the angels to protect
these items of protection.
Allah says we are your protectors.
for you. You can have whatever your soul desires, and whatever you call for it will be yours. That's what they're told before they die. As you are given the information, don't worry. You're about to go we're taking your soul away. Good news. Good news.
That happened to us.
Imagine you're about to go and you are given good news. Hey, don't worry, no need to fear no need to worry. And Allah will give you we are the protectors in the junior. Allah give you what you wish what you desire. Why?
Because Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, this is a really compliments of the good deeds that
while you were in the short life, shortly
after that it will be too long to meet with a lot we want to meet with a lost Hannah Montana. This is why is looked at as a gift to a believer, but you're not allowed to take your own life. And you're not allowed to take the lives of others. It's a lot of choices and decides
for us. So in this way we will be in this way we will be smiling. In this way. We will be a reward of all the tests and the difficulties and the hardships that we have been through in this world. This is life. Sort of this life will be full of difficulties this life will be full of boiling. If you want food, you will have to work very the food will come if you want something you have to sweat it
otherwise it doesn't just come
You don't even need to believe in yourself.
Your body will be perfect. The sense that will emanate from you that will come from you will be absolutely amazing. Everything as far as your wish. Me Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all many countless Jelena
Allah opened our doors, I came to someone
usually And normally, I see for 45 minutes and I close the company. And today I decided that no, it's not like I come to someone every day. Not only is it at the end of the alphabet, but it is also right in the southernmost part of the Philippines. So you know, may Allah make us come again and again. A lot of my brothers and sisters I love you for the sake of Allah.
I may not know you personally but trust me, our souls have met somewhere before and inshallah we will meet somewhere again, if Allah wills and until we meet again by the permission of Allah sallallahu wasallam about a calendar you know how many how many
