Smith Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah, Allah, he was heavy age mine.

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

My dear is mothers and sisters.

00:03:12--> 00:03:16

I know it is a little bit early on Sunday morning.

00:03:17--> 00:03:59

But I think Allah subhanho wa Taala for giving us the opportunity to gather together to listen to a word of encouragement towards his obedience, getting closer to Allah, we can never lose by hearing a good word inshallah, that would remind the speaker and those who are listening about Allah. So this morning I've chosen to speak about the favor of Allah upon us. Allah has given us so many gifts, so many things. If I were to ask you, what has Allah given you, you will have a long list of things to say Allah gave me this and Allah gave me that and as you are writing, you will continue writing more and more and more. Why

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

don't matter law healer.

00:04:05--> 00:04:39

If you're going to try to count the favors of Allah upon you, you're never going to manage to count all of them. Allah says you won't. You will have to keep on going and going every year you every day you add more and more things that will come to your mind. But if I were to ask you, what is the biggest favor of Allah upon you? It is that favor that you cannot do without something you cannot do that. So someone might say, Well, my breathing because I cannot do without breathing. Can you really not do without breathing? So many people stopped breathing? What happened to them?

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

What happened to them?

00:04:43--> 00:04:56

Someone might ask you, someone might say, Well, my heartbeat is the most greatest gift of Allah because if the heartbeat stops tell us that's it. But so many people's hearts have stopped beating Was that it?

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

The reality is if your heart beats

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

Your breathing stops.

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

You haven't stopped only your body stops.

00:05:06--> 00:05:25

What happens to you? You're going to continue your journey, exactly as Allah planned it, where were you before your heart was beating? And where were you before you were breathing? You will with Allah. So where will you be after your heart stops beating. And after you stop breathing, you will be back with Allah.

00:05:26--> 00:05:30

So this is why when someone passes away,

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

we usually repeat the dua of the Quran in Allah, he were in a garage. What does that mean? It means we belong to Allah in the first place, we came from him, and we're going to go back to him. So the greatest gift is not connected to some thing. That is from your health. Although health is a gift, it's not connected to your wealth. Although wealth is a gift. It's not connected to your time. Although time is a gift.

00:05:59--> 00:06:46

It's not connected to something material, like it's not connected to your youth. Although those are all gifts. The greatest gift without a doubt is something that you can never do without neither in the dunya nor in the archaea. For now, if you look at the whole world, materialism has already taken off. What does that mean? Even pious people are running behind the latest phones. Even pious people are running behind perfumes, they are running behind the cars, the latest houses the best kitchen, the most beautiful furniture, the best mattress, the best durveys, the designer things the food that we want to sample and eat and try out the big big names, we we will travel all the way. Sorry to

00:06:46--> 00:07:28

give this example. I'm going to say it because it's facts, we will travel all the way to Makkah in some cases. And the idea is we're going to eat at that restaurant, it's already in the mind. I'm not saying it's Haram, but I'm only giving you an example. So like, we might travel all the way somewhere. And the idea is, I make sure I'm not gonna miss the dessert that sold at this particular place. It's not Haram. But that's not the main purpose of our existence in the dunya, we have to realize, and especially with the virus that has hit many, many countries worse than ours, we have come to a realization that there is no guarantee of life. no guarantee I can drop. Now, I may never

00:07:28--> 00:07:34

return to where I came from. I could be here in Milan, where you might very me at the closest graveyard.

00:07:35--> 00:07:54

It's possible, I need to think of the fact that it's possible. So watch what needs to happen as a result, what should I do? So now recognize your favor. Because what you had on Earth, you're going to leave it on Earth. Because when you came to the earth, you came with nothing, you didn't even come with clothes, you came with zero, nothing, nothing.

00:07:55--> 00:08:21

Whatever you found beneficial on Earth, you're going to leave it on earth and you're going to go back with 00 completely. So what do I take, I take something that's not tangible. At the point where I'm going to go when I pass away, they put me in to cover two pieces of cloth, they will bury me in the in the cupboard, and they will close it. And that's what will happen to all of us. Now if that happens. What do I have with me?

00:08:22--> 00:08:52

The only thing that I have to be very fair and honest is something known as a man. My deeds. What did the angels are not going to say? How many food Did you sample? Which which restaurants? Did you eat it? How many cars Did you guys have? What type of a house did you have? None of those questions are relevant because you know what? We let's realize we are believers, we are so lucky that Allah prepares us for that day by telling us that enjoy that while you're in the dunya. Don't let it get into your heart.

00:08:54--> 00:09:03

If you lost a watch or a phone, your phone fell in the screen cracked. You don't smack your child who did that. You must just say it's okay, we'll get another one.

00:09:04--> 00:09:46

You can you can admonish them a little bit. Because the next day if they found that you were so okay with it, then break the next one. And the following day they might break another one and so on. That's why one day it has to stop but don't get so connected to it that you start beating them up as though it's the end of the world. When they don't read Salah you're not even worried but when they broke your phone, you're so worried look at the difference. So the reality is when we pass away we take with us our our model. I want to invite you My beloved sisters, my dearest mothers to build your account of deeds your man so that when you go your balance is very big every day, look at your

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

armor as a gold bar, gold bar and packaway so many gold bars when the professor seldom says rakata and Federico Mina dunya wall mafia. The two rock out of sooner of fudger are better

00:10:00--> 00:10:16

Then the whole dunya and whatever it has in it, you must know that that is something great you know I was when we Lent, one of our starts told us that if two records of Suna are so loved by Allah imagine the funnel.

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

Imagine the follow

00:10:20--> 00:10:55

if to rock out of sooner better than the whole dunya and Allah tells you in the Hadith could see that there is nothing more beloved to me than what I made fun of. I was speaking a few days ago in one of my lectures and I said that, why did Allah make certain things for Do you know the reason there is a reason because he loved those things the most. He wants you to read he says it had it could see there is nothing more loved to me than what I have made compulsory. If I made this compulsory, it means I love it so much and you want to gain closeness to me start off with your father, and then your sooner and nothing when you do your soon and nothing you arrive on a new level

00:10:55--> 00:11:38

of closeness with Allah. So when we fulfill our Salah one Salah, you should think imagine that I took a gold bar, and a gold bar is nothing but only to bring it close to our minds. I took a gold bar and I packed it away if he Sabina by the end of the day, you've got 2030 gold bars that you packed away on the side, by the end of the month, you've got three 400 Gold, then any time you talk about another person in a negative way, you must take away 10 gold bars and give it to them. You understand what I'm saying? Because when it comes to backbiting, when it comes to gossip and slander, when it comes to talking about someone else, you must realize all you are Amala going so

00:11:38--> 00:12:16

you are giving those bars away. So let's become more conscious. When you talk about someone else, say good things or keep quiet monka Now you may know Billa he will do me a kidney failure. Cool. Hi, Ron Alia smart, whoever truly believes in Allah. And the last day, the last day meaning reckoning you believe in accounts, you believe one day will come when you have to give accounts of your deeds. If you really truly believe that, you will only say good words, or you will keep quiet because you don't want to use the gold bars that you've packed away. So that's how it should be. Let's become more conscious, even amongst our families, amongst our friends, our circles, our communities, say

00:12:16--> 00:12:36

good things about one another or keep quiet. But we should not say bad things about one another you have a problem with someone tried to clarify it directly and try to make it you know, something that is cleared between the parties in a private manner. But the biggest favor that Allah has bestowed upon us is our Eman

00:12:37--> 00:12:51

if Allah takes us back to him with that email, when we have succeeded. And if we don't have that a man, no matter what we had in the dunya It was not a sign of the happiness of Allah. Some people

00:12:53--> 00:13:10

they say, Allah loves these those people a lot because he gave them a lot. What did he give them? He gave them What? So they'll say no, look, these people, they got money, they got jobs, they got cars, they got houses, they got holidays, they got those they go Here they go there. So Allah says, layer one lady in

00:13:12--> 00:13:54

the meta. Callie, Allah says, even the kuffaar, don't become deceived by the fact that we've given them the dunya. For them, it's going to be Mata on Colleen, it's just a little provision of a short fixed period of time. And after that, where do they go, they go back to Allah, they've lost everything because they did not have a man. So without a man, you can still enjoy the dunya to a certain degree, but you will not have that contentment that will take you into the archaea. That's the thing. So today, when we have the trends that we're watching the people follow across the globe, there's a fashion that comes what type of fashion, for example, a certain type of dress code. It's

00:13:54--> 00:14:36

foreign to us. And people are wearing a different type of clothing, ask yourself this clothing, will Allah be pleased with it? Or he will not be pleased with it? If the answer is he will be pleased with it. Go ahead. That means it's okay. If he will not be pleased with it. Don't go ahead. This is a simple rule to work by. Because for someone to say don't wait, this Don't wait. There's so many new things that have come out now that there's no point for us to individualize. We rather generalize and say, Look at the pleasure of Allah would you be if the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam whom we all claim to love, if he was to walk into your place? Or if he was to see you

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

somewhere in a public space? Would you be embarrassed of the way you are? Plus, that's all if you would be embarrassed, that means there is room for improvement inshallah. And if you would not be embarrassed then inshallah we can still improve in other things. But you need to thank Allah that he's given you the tofik that you don't run behind the dunya because the world

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

Life and the worldly glamour is such that it will always run faster than you. No matter how fast you can run the worldly life. And the materialism of the world will always be quicker than you. I can give you evidence, anything you have of materialism, it will get outdated in a short time, you're going to need something else.

00:15:25--> 00:16:06

Whether it's today, today, you can buy the latest cars late today 2021 model, I promise you in no time you will say this car is no longer the latest I need another one why the dunia is running faster than before you can afford the other one, it's already on your phone today, you can have the S 22. The s 22. You can have it which is not even out by the way. But you have the S 22. Today, tomorrow when they talking about the S 23. You know, they say in your heart, your heart is already painting. My phone won't be the latest anymore. And you start either your father or your husband or your brother or yourself. You start saving up you start looking at you know what I need the other

00:16:06--> 00:16:32

phone but your phone is working is doing your job for you. It has been loyal to you. It's a good thing. And so what was the point of upgrading? It's not haram to upgrade Don't get me wrong, but that must not be your main focus in life. Your main focus must still be to please Allah, that's the way we will succeed in this world. That's the way we will. So this message is a very strong message you know I read a few verses before you have sudo to RF

00:16:33--> 00:16:38

and l RF is the surah named after

00:16:39--> 00:16:51

an elevated place the people of general will go into general that people have jahannam will go into jahannam and there will be some people evey at the end. Neither here nor there still they fate is being decided as

00:16:52--> 00:17:13

a transit they are sitting Subhana Allah and they fate is being decided now. There will be a discussion happening and at the end, they will get Jana against all odds because they had good deeds they did. Now one of the favors of Allah upon you and and upon us

00:17:14--> 00:17:29

is that Allah subhanho wa Taala ways your deeds he will weigh your deeds. So the Quran tells us in more than one place that when your good deeds are heavy, good news to you. And that's why

00:17:30--> 00:17:37

the Hadith says at bat say at Al Hassan atom haha workaholic in NASA who looking handsome.

00:17:38--> 00:18:09

When you did a bad deed, follow it up with a lot of good deeds, it will wipe out automatically say you did a bad deed it was one kg. If you did good deeds worth 20 kgs what happened to the one kg it's it's almost discounted, it's like gone, it will disappear because you have over done or you have overdone it by doing many more good deeds. See. So Allah ways the deeds. That's why when you see someone, all of us here we are sinners could lose money as

00:18:10--> 00:18:45

soon as to the degree that we are human being we fault we make mistakes, we do something wrong. Sometimes a minus sin can happen. Sometimes it's in the case of some people a major sin happens. Allah has allowed the door of Toba and repentance and returning to Allah. But you need to remember one thing when you when you've done wrong, a person looks at you. And they may say if they don't know the wrong you did they say this person is a very pious person and you start thinking stowford Allah they don't even know that I'm good Laguna. You know, I'm so

00:18:46--> 00:19:21

sinful, I'm so sinful, they don't even know how sinful I am. But Alhamdulillah Allah has covered and Allah, they will know you to be predominant, predominantly a good person. I'm predominantly a good person, for example, a few sins here and there and I seek forgiveness for it. I don't do it intention and if I have fallen really, and we will follow it from time to time, seek forgiveness of Allah straightaway. But at the end of the day, Allah will weigh your good deeds and your bad deeds. If you have more good deeds you are you are going to from saco Latin I was in

00:19:24--> 00:19:59

one of the verses there are many verses even a lot of ARIA has a verse. And here are lysing whoever's good deeds are heavy, those are the ones who are successful, Allah will ignore the bad, but when your bad deeds are heavy, then what happens then we have a lot to lose. We have lost everything. We have lost everything. So one of the failures of Allah is he weighs your deeds. So we need to know if I did something bad. I must do a good thing so that Allah subhanho wa Taala will compensate us through the good that we've done for the bad that we've done.

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

Similarly, when we change our lives there is something known as the mercy of Allah. the mercy of Allah is beyond human comprehension. Why do I say this?

00:20:13--> 00:20:30

Say someone owes you a million quarters? How much is a million quarters in dollars, just over $1,000 or over 1000 1200. So, if someone owes you $1,200, and they have to pay you back,

00:20:32--> 00:20:57

and one day you stand up and you say, here is another $2,400 take this and also the one which you have to give me is forgiven and you don't need to give me again, you can think this person is crazy. I owe them instead of me paying them they wiped it out. And on top of that, they gave me double of that and told me take this also and now go, you can say there's some generous people in the wrong way here man.

00:21:00--> 00:21:02

By the way, man, and if there's anyone like that you must show us

00:21:05--> 00:21:14

the reality of the matter is, Allah's mercy is beyond that when Allah subhanho wa Taala says in

00:21:17--> 00:21:20

my No, I mean, I'm not Oh, sorry. Have

00:21:23--> 00:21:27

you been Dino long say he has

00:21:29--> 00:22:15

worked on a lot of food, often shortened for con. Towards the end Allah tells us that those who committed major sins when they seek forgiveness of Allah and they change their lives. So those are the two conditions. taba What are Manawa amela manansala doba and is still far there is a difference between the two simple difference is still far is to say, Oh ALLAH forgive me, Toba is to change your life and return to Allah. So to seek Allah's forgiveness is one thing and to change your life is another thing. When you do both of those, then Allah says, I will do something for you that is unmatched. What will I do? I will take all your sins, I will convert them into good deeds on the

00:22:15--> 00:22:36

right side of the scale for you to have as a good deed on the day of piano. So when you come on the day of karma, after having made is still far and Toba, which means you asked the last forgiveness and you changed your life for the sake of Allah. Allah says, When you come on the Day of Judgment, you are going to see a lot of good deeds that you did not do.

00:22:37--> 00:23:00

And you will be surprised. These are not my good deeds. I never been for just an example. I haven't been for HUD, for example, I didn't do this usual This is my book of deeds. Allah says, Did you not do Toba? Did you not turn to mean? Did you not come back to me after your bad ways? And well, you did. So here, I gave you a gift from?

00:23:01--> 00:23:19

Why does Allah give a gift? simple answer, because you did it only for his sake. Nothing was stopping you from continuing in your bad deed, except the pleasure of Allah or the fear of Allah. That's all. When a person sins.

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

What is the sign that you are a movement?

00:23:24--> 00:24:09

What is the same? It's a simple sign. The Hadith, the prophet Salam says, when you do a good deed, like sometimes you get up for fudger early, you make your tahajjud. Perhaps you do your tarot card, you sit with your car and after failure, what happens that day you feel nice, man. There's a nice feeling inside you. Allah is proving it to you. There's a nice feeling. He does, Sir, let kahana to Kawasaki. Talk for another moment. When your good deed makes you happy. And it makes you excited. And your sin causes great, you know, negativity within you It makes you regret, then it's a sign that you're a believer. Because if you were not a believer, you would not regret since we look at

00:24:09--> 00:24:46

those walking around everywhere who don't believe for them. There's nothing like a sin. Whatever comes in their mind they do it whatever the desires happen, can happen. they fulfill it. But I mean, if someone were to commit a major sin immediately they would feel I should not have done this. What did I achieve by this? This was a very bad thing. I'm not going to do it again. A stanfill Let me make Voodoo, let me read shala Let me seek alas for given all of those thoughts and signs are assigned that you are mean. And that is a gift of Allah upon you. Like I said the biggest gift of your movement, it keeps you on the path when you went wrong. It kept brought you back when you did

00:24:46--> 00:24:49

right it encouraged you to do more for the sake of Allah.

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

So this is the man that's the gift you have. And this will take us this will continue with us into the hereafter and among

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

I will show you your deeds and he will multiply the good deeds. There is a hadith I've spoken among three times in the last 10 days. This is the fourth time I'm going to talk about it, because it's so beautiful in Ramadan, and we just came out of Ramadan. What were we supposed to achieve? We were supposed to achieve all of your Allahumma Taka Domine Gumby. We were supposed to achieve forgiveness of all the previous sins because we fasted and we stood in our way, and we did a bad Ramadan is a pillars Psalm and fasting is a pillar of Islam inside which another three pillars are fulfilled besides the Hajj, because you're going to give Zakat in Ramadan, you're going to do your Salah in

00:25:42--> 00:26:24

Ramadan, and you strengthen your Eman and that is the Shahada in Ramadan. So four pillars of Islam all inside one month, the other is Hajj because it has to happen at a different time. So it's a very great man. Now that we've come out of Ramadan, let's not slide back. Let's not slide back. What did you achieve? Someone says I used to read Quran every day for 30 minutes, okay, it's outside Ramadan, at least read 10 minutes. Maybe not if you can study Al Hamdulillah. I used to do this ama, for example used to read this much I used to do this man do Don't leave it. You don't know how long your life is going to be. So we continue within the month of Shawwal. Also with a few Suna fasts, you can

00:26:24--> 00:26:31

fast xiaowen the six packs of chawan will earn you a great reward, a great reward. So what you do is

00:26:32--> 00:27:11

it does not have to be consecutive it can be broken up days, one day now one day later, you can even use the Monday and Thursday fasts to do that end, the 13 1415 of the lunar that is the sooner you can use those also you will have six by the end of shaohua. And you have a reward because a good deed is multiplied by 10 Ramadan by 10 is 10 months and six days by taking 60 days 10 months plus another 60 days which is two months makes the whole year you have a reward. But when we when our connection with Allah becomes weak after Ramadan, we have to remind ourselves that let's not let's not become weak, I might it might not be my

00:27:12--> 00:27:51

it might not be that I will see a more advanced or more months. And in that particular case I would lose. So remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala and my relationship with him is by far more important than what has been gathered in the dunya cool before Lila he will be our committee he for bizarre liquor failure for Houhai Roman management. What is better than what people have gathered and amassed in terms of material wealth? What is better than all of that is when Allah has favored you. When Allah has had mercy on you, the mercy of Allah and the favor of Allah is better than everything that people own or can own.

00:27:52--> 00:27:57

So when a person this is the Hadith, I was saying that I've spoken about it a few times already.

00:27:58--> 00:28:08

When a person plans to do a bad deed and does not do it, Allah writes a reward for them. When a person plans to do a bad deed and does it.

00:28:10--> 00:28:57

Allah tells the angels to hold the pin for a while of the day before they write the bad deed, La La Jolla to perhaps this person will make Toba so let's not write it yet. Did you know that the mercy of Allah when you do when you have planned a bad deed and you don't do it, immediately a reward is written next to your name? Why? Because what made me not do it? It's um it was easy, doable. What made me not do it was Allah. So Allah says you deserve a reward. And when you plan to do a bad deed and you and you did it for a while the angels are holding on hoping that you are going to ask Allah for forgiveness. So seek forgiveness immediately. It's a gift of Allah. If your person immediately

00:28:57--> 00:28:58

seek forgiveness.

00:28:59--> 00:29:03

Allah says, we're living in either alpha alpha and our

00:29:04--> 00:29:07

local law festival for only

00:29:08--> 00:29:24

the people who have committed immorality who have committed evil sin they wronged themselves. If they immediately think of Allah subhanho wa Taala and seek forgiveness. Allah says we forgive them or like Jessa Omar Villa tomorrow be more gentle for them. Allah will give them mug Vera and Jenna

00:29:26--> 00:29:36

so Jenna is full of sinners who have repented. Remember that Jen is full of sinners who have repented because none of us are perfect other money his salon.

00:29:38--> 00:30:00

He did something Allah told him not to do he sought forgiveness Allah forgiving. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. Then when a person plans a good deed, by your near you already have a reward. you plan to do a good deed you have a reward even if you did not manage to fulfill the

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

Good Deed. I planned that when I come to the long way we're going to have this and this and this if it was good things, even if I did not manage because of some reason, I get a reward for it.

00:30:12--> 00:30:43

But the good thing is, if I managed to execute it, immediately, a reward is written and it is multiplied, depending on many factors, how difficult was it for me to do? What was my sensitivity level, so many other factors Allah multiplies it by 10, or by 70, or by 700, or even more for all of us. But the soon after that few hours with the angels are waiting to see that you seek forgiveness if you did not seek that forgiveness. One sin is written next to your name.

00:30:44--> 00:31:04

Still, if you committed sin for 20 years, 30 years you didn't do something properly. The minute you ask Allah for forgiveness, Allah tells you, I was waiting for you. all your sins are now wiped out. Let's start a new relationship. Harley didn't only the memory era, the Allahumma

00:31:05--> 00:31:42

he came to Medina munawwara, accepting Islam after having inflicted a lot of damage against the Muslims. And at that juncture, the strange thing is he was worried about something. He never understood the concept of forgiveness in Islam. So he told the process enemy or messenger, I want to accept Islam, but what about all the people I've murdered? And what about all the sins that I've committed in the past? So the process of them says, Yeah, finally in Islam, Maya jubo mccobb love that Oh, how did you know your your acceptance of Islam will wipe out your previous says, he heard that statement. thrice. He stretched his hands and he says on that condition here is my Shahada.

00:31:43--> 00:32:21

Which means I am accepting and turning to Allah, I am repenting to Allah. And you know, something that really moves me when I read about how the prophets of Salaam called Khalid Nell were leads brother, his name is Ali de Mille Walid, Ravi, Allah and Allah. He accepted Islam first. He was in Medina. So Holly, the prophets are seldom called him and said to him, this was unbelievable. Willie, he says way is Harley in a valley. Where is Harley? So he was explaining that Harley is in Makkah is doing this he's doing that he's brother. So

00:32:22--> 00:32:24

he has he not yet softened towards Islam.

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

So the process Adam said two things that we need to think about. He says,

00:32:32--> 00:32:34

mommy through Khalid in

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

Islam

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

was

00:32:41--> 00:32:49

a man with such a powerful brain so intelligent, he cannot be ignorant of the fact that Islam is correct.

00:32:51--> 00:33:39

Imagine that statement mamita Luca leading it means the most intelligent people of this world are not the ones who can technologically arrive at the moon. They are those who can recognize Allah was in son. Ma can be can carry min lady holla Kaka VESA Kapha Dalek, la Cooper insaan what is it that has deceived you against your own Lord who created you he fashioned you He gave you he shaped you and you attending away from him?

How can you be deceived your own Allah people have gone in front of your nose and you still think you can carry on in your ways and your

00:33:39--> 00:33:53

habits? Subhan Allah Allah, Allah Allah mean, so Allah, the prophet ourselves is hardly such an intelligent man. A day will come when he will realize you know what I have to go to surrender to Allah.

00:33:55--> 00:34:06

Mommy through holiday ninja Hello Islam, a person like Khalid, he cannot be ignorant of Islam. Then he says, yet to be hidden now. Allah will bring him

00:34:07--> 00:34:19

Allah will bring him so he Daya and guidance is in the hands of Allah. ask Allah to guide ask Allah to make it easy for you to do the right thing and ask Allah to make it difficult to you to do for you to do the wrong things.

00:34:20--> 00:34:43

And a little while later, Holly didn't only grow the Allahumma he comes to Medina and this is the question he asked and he accepted Islam. It's amazing. Now when we read these stories, let's ask ourselves, what have we done? Have we left our bad ways? Have we changed our lives? Have we started doing the right thing? Or are we still running behind the materialism? forgetting a lot.

00:34:45--> 00:34:48

It doesn't mean that you You must have you know,

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

bad things just because you're a good Muslim. So you must have tattered clothes. You must have bad shoes. You must have the s5 You know the old phone that doesn't work anymore. It doesn't mean because I'm a good

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

Muslim I must have old I can be a good Muslim and I can have an updated things but my heart is connected to Allah primarily not to these things these things are what you get you get you don't get you don't get no problem, but I'm not running behind it. I'm running behind Allah.

00:35:17--> 00:35:29

So May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant a strength and May Allah open our doors on that day of tiama We ask Allah to grant us Jenna with his mercy

00:35:30--> 00:35:52

because at the end of the day, that's what we need. When I sit and read the story of the RF and how the people of jahannam who will be cast in Hellfire they will call out to say please we are burning yet. Pour some water on us. Every time I see the air conditioning units in our houses. I tell myself we need to build our air condition for the archaea.

00:35:54--> 00:36:27

When it is hot here in Lilongwe, 40 degrees, everyone is sweating and this year we are fortunate we have a conditions right the people who say switch on the AC why because I'm sweating. Mashallah one click of the button the AC is on cool breeze and Your smile is so broad. We never knew you had so many tea Subhanallah but what happens is the same heat worse than that heat we are going to face. If you have an air conditioned day the angels are click the button and you feel the breeze in your cover already.

00:36:29--> 00:36:41

How do you prepare that a condition? You prepare it by your man the biggest gift Allah gave you is a man a man you have that man and you know what I want to end up with something beautiful.

00:36:44--> 00:37:02

The Dow when someone passes away we say Allahumma Villa hyena woman Aegina shahidi in our house even I was reading our kabiri now whether Kareena when Santa Allahumma hater who Amina e L. Islam, woman of faith a human photographer who Allah

00:37:03--> 00:37:43

a man, what's the difference between the two? When you start off you surrender to Allah The Pillars of Islam, what are they? I did my Salah, I did my Sokka I did my heart I fasted etc, I say my kalama these are the pillars of Islam, whoever Allah you have granted life from amongst us, make him a Muslim, make him submit to you, as his life develops, make him mean who has it in his heart? Look at the pillars of a man are meant to build a woman that he could he could to be he was really well you mean actually Well, at the height he was serving? Well bath etc. The six pillars of Eman they are within the heart, your connection with Allah, you are saying Oh Allah when you take me away, take me

00:37:43--> 00:37:59

away with the man. When you take someone away, take him away with you, man. You know why that do? I would never have had the word he man as the main focus, unless a man was what was going to give you the ultimate success of the hereafter.

00:38:01--> 00:38:46

Do did Is there any dude that says Oh Allah, man, I hate the human or whoever you give life from amongst us, give him money, give him a job, give him a good spouse, give him all that is secondary, whether you had it or not, does not determine your agenda. So that's why it's never the point of focusing. When a person passes away, or when a person is born, is the point of focus of the dua is Islam, building its way to a man Oh Allah when someone comes alive, let them come with Islam. And when someone passes on, let them pass on with a man. So this is why we say it is the biggest favor of Allah protect it, how to protect it. This is where the whole community comes in. We are living in

00:38:46--> 00:39:28

communities, make sure you participate in your programs, in your lectures in your learning in your practicing in your putting it into practice and teaching it to others in a beautiful way. And when you see someone who is a stray, according to what you might have noticed, make dua for them. Because tomorrow, they might become closer to Allah than you. You don't know. It has happened to the Sahaba the Allahu anhu way. There were some of them who were like Harley Davidson when he realized he was on the wrong side in the Battle of in the first few battles. Later on, he came on the right side and we know that his status was very, very high. So don't underestimate someone when you see someone

00:39:28--> 00:39:41

doing wrong, you must make dua for them. If you have a relationship with them, talk to them in a nice way. If you excommunicate them, I'm not going to talk to this person at all. Why? Because because of a sin or two, you must remember one thing

00:39:42--> 00:39:46

they might go beyond you one day and then what will happen?

00:39:48--> 00:40:00
