Last night, we were speaking to a young man who was trying to get answers to some crucial questions.

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

And talking about doubting Allah. I said, Where were you one year before you were born? Where were you? Do you remember? No. I want to ask you another question. One month before you were born, where were you? Can you say it?

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

Please say it. One month before you were born, where were you?

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

I know you are big men. But tell me where were you in your mother's?

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

in your mother's

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


00:00:41 --> 00:00:46

One month before you were born, where were you? In your mother's womb?

00:00:48 --> 00:00:49

But do you remember that?

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

Anyone remember, please put up your hand and come and let us know. Thanks.

00:00:55 --> 00:00:56

Anyone remember?

00:00:57 --> 00:01:12

But Wallah, he you were there? Don't you believe you were there? Why? Because people told you they showed you they showed you hey, look, the scan when you were you were kicking a lot. Your mom will say right? You were kicking so much.

00:01:13 --> 00:01:19

Do you remember? No, you don't. So why do you believe it? You believe it? Because people told you about it?

00:01:21 --> 00:01:38

Right? What about before that? Where were you when you were part in your mom and part in your dad in the form of eggs perhaps and so on a grid? Do you remember? Not at all? But were you there or not? Yes, you were Subhan? Allah.

00:01:40 --> 00:02:23

Allah speaks about it in surah. Tada, That man doesn't realize he was created from a droplet SubhanAllah. But you weren't there. You don't remember. But people told you science told you anyone else told you then you were quick to believe ALLAH already told it to you. And Allah says, Do you know where you are right now? You will cross another membrane into the hereafter. That is going to be amazing and mind boggling. Let me tell you why. When you were little in the womb of your mother, and you were swimming around the entire womb, guess what was happening? You were excited. There was warmth, there was protection. There was food, there were nutrients, you are growing, you were happy.

00:02:23 --> 00:02:32

You were so superbly unique. Everything was cool and calm for you, no matter what happened to your mother, you were okay. And you kept on gaining weight.

00:02:34 --> 00:02:38

You were happy. As you gain more and more weights, what happened?

00:02:40 --> 00:02:42

The space became less agreed.

00:02:43 --> 00:02:52

When space became so less and now you can't even move? What happened? You probably thought you know what? It's the end? It's finished. It's over. It's done.

00:02:53 --> 00:03:06

What's going to happen to you? I don't know. Where are you going to go? No idea. It's finished. I'm sure people who never believe in the hereafter never even believed that there was life outside the womb. Right? They never believed there is life outside the womb.

00:03:08 --> 00:04:01

But little did you know there is a thin membrane between you as a fetus and the real world out there, which is totally different. What is there there is a thin membrane between you and that real world. And when you thought it's all over, suddenly you came out into the real world. You were born and you were crying Subhanallah you were crying. Because it was overwhelming. something amazing happened. What happened? I came out into something I never imagined existed. Imagine I'm outside my mother for the first time. And I'm looking at this mother, whom I was in her womb SubhanAllah. You need it's amazing. Allah kept it such that none of us there is no exception. Not one of us can

00:04:01 --> 00:04:06

remember the day we were born. If you can, I told you we will give you

00:04:07 --> 00:04:09

a medal. Come and stand here and let us know.

00:04:11 --> 00:04:16

You don't remember but you believe it because you were told. That's what it is.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:58

I am equally convinced that between me and the hereafter, there is also a thin membrane. The minute I cross it, I will be oh so behind Allah. We won't be crying. We will be smiling. We are believers. We developed a relationship with the one we are going to return to with Allah. We tried hard, we sought forgiveness. We went to him. We we prayed to Him. We did whatever we had to when we go through that one membrane. It is challenging because there is anxiety of the unknown, but my faith will take me across. It's not going to be a tough day for the believers.

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

You believe

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

In your Lord in the maker, you believed in Allah then don't worry that will be a beautiful day by the will of Allah subhanahu wa taala you cross that membrane and you go into a beautiful Hereafter you will be so so so impressed. You will only remember small pockets of things about the Earth, that to only what Allah wants you to remember.

00:05:27 --> 00:05:36

Because you don't remember anything from the womb what gives you a guarantee you're going to remember everything from the earth when you go the other side, you will only remember what Allah wants you to remember
