my brothers just

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

some coefficients.

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

I didn't know that but could very well. I only met him about a month ago before I went to Hajj. But why the effect is brother has had on me no other brother has had in such a short time.

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

You boys know him better than me. So I'm not gonna act like I know him.

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

But every time I came to see him the smile was on his face.

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

For my brothers, you spend he feeling sorry for him by a lie tell you you should feel sorry for yourself, this man by a law by the honorable death.

00:00:41--> 00:00:50

And now that he's dead, I can praise you. Because when I was dealing, I didn't want to throw dust in his face. But I have never seen the likes of this boy, never.

00:00:52--> 00:01:01

My brothers, you come here to the grave. You come to the cemetery for you to understand, for you to see for you to comprehend, for yourself for your benefit for your change.

00:01:04--> 00:01:17

You might see him so poor man, he had cancer. I tell you, he was fortunate enough to have gone cancer. He had time to think about where he's going. He had time to think about what he's doing. He had time to repent to Allah.

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

I was with him a day before he died.

00:01:23--> 00:01:30

He's telling me just before I got cancer, I had a house on the river. I sold something in my heart just wasn't feeling right.

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

How many of us were drowning and drowning and

00:01:37--> 00:01:58

drowning and drowning in finance and interest? And you can justify it how you want some chef under the bridge somewhere gave you a pathway somehow somewhere. This is your problem. But by Allah The only thing the only thing that Allah ever declared war, Allah declared law is the river.

00:01:59--> 00:02:02

How many of us were drowning and drowning in the river?

00:02:03--> 00:02:04

And then what?

00:02:05--> 00:02:11

You think this little 600 square meters that you're buying and that you're going to war with a law? You think it's worth?

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

It is your real home?

00:02:15--> 00:02:24

This is your real house? Woman hyatts with dunya in lamotta What is this world? What do you take with you?

00:02:25--> 00:02:33

When I was there? The brother was saying he's sick with cancer, vets verbalized in his bed didn't miss a single pray

00:02:38--> 00:02:43

you're young your feet. You don't see your cars outside and you still don't pray

00:02:46--> 00:02:49

don't feel sorry for him feel sorry for yourself.

00:02:50--> 00:02:56

But allow I think a custom by Allah azza wa jal The last thing he did when I seen him The last thing

00:02:57--> 00:03:04

I want you to bear witness he gave me this money is given away in charity for me, please. Can you see this?

00:03:06--> 00:03:12

Suddenly give it away in charity for me, please. Distributed however you like publicity, Stephanie, do whatever you please.

How many of you know you're holding on to money, aren't you?

00:03:22--> 00:03:24

Hon. I've watched many people.

00:03:25--> 00:03:35

So calm. so peaceful. So relax. So white in his face. He had a smirky smile the whole time.

00:03:38--> 00:03:42

He had the smile on his face. I'm thinking man, tell me where you

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

want to be the man.

00:03:47--> 00:03:50

Sorry for him. My brothers feel sorry for you.

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

Where are we going with?

00:03:55--> 00:04:22

My brother's having to come to see one way over the last two days just over the immediately my little humble life. My friend for those of you who know him at the booth, he was with me in hij. He went to Lebanon to pick up his family came back his six year old kid died. Did I say no? No excuses. Six years old. Bacary a friend younger than most of you. A lot took his life. My uncle yesterday yesterday I lost sight of what Allah took his life.

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

My brothers This world is so temporary. You have no idea.

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

This was the Prophet of Allah. You're having fun. Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Maybe you know what? Maybe I'm an extremist. Maybe I have some extreme views, but your prophet is speaking. He says conflict dunya Kanika Hari Sabine, Your Habib, some Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He says be in this world. Like a stranger, like a traveler, like a wayfarer, this world that we're all in love with this world, that we're all competing over this world that

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

We're killing ourselves over this world that we brothers that don't talk to each other anymore. Have you seen this? Blood Brothers don't talk to each other anymore. People that grew up over money, women cause business trivial problems. They don't speak to each other anymore. This world, this world that we're hanging on to the prophets of Allah, He says this world follow SLM.

00:05:26--> 00:05:32

It's so trivial. Its transit. Its transit. Anyone. Have you been on an international flight?

00:05:33--> 00:05:43

Anyone been on an international flight? You stopped in Dubai? Or maybe you stopped in Abu Dhabi? How long? Were you there for an hour? to three?

00:05:45--> 00:05:51

Anyone? Have you ever in Dubai or Abu Dhabi? Did the thought ever crossed your mind? Maybe I should buy a house here.

00:05:53--> 00:05:58

Anyone of you wanting to buy everything you don't want? Maybe a business opportunity in this place?

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

Did any one of you was sitting in Dubai thinking stuff? You know what? I have a couple of hours. Let's try getting married.

00:06:08--> 00:06:27

You didn't? Why? Because your mind and your heart was not in dubai airport. Rather it was at your destination? I know I'm leaving. My connecting flight is in a few hours. Gate 58 what do I want from this airport? And similarly, my brothers This world is transit.

00:06:29--> 00:06:35

This world is Dubai and Abu Dhabi. It's an illusion. It's not real. What do you take with you?

00:06:36--> 00:06:39

What do you take? What did he say? Did you see him?

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

Because I wrapped him up. I can assure you he was naked.

00:06:44--> 00:06:52

No pockets he not Gucci Louie Vuitton and he never seen his beard BMWs in mg is in here. Nothing.

00:06:53--> 00:06:54


00:06:56--> 00:06:59

00:07:01--> 00:07:20

The Prophet of Allah He says Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam yet found my SSL after three things. Three things. They follow the grave. Listen, my brothers will lie. I'm begging you for yourself. Don't stand here and be entertained by me and one lady I showed my face and I would follow your heart Your heart this heart leads to

00:07:22--> 00:07:27

this heart leads to move. Why am I here? What is the purpose of my life?

00:07:28--> 00:07:31

If it is not to worship a mother to do what?

00:07:33--> 00:07:35

00:07:39--> 00:07:49

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

At least in my life, but I've never seen a bit of one.

It would have been Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but even he had to die.

00:10:06--> 00:10:15

What makes you think you're so special that you're so unique or that you're gonna escape? You'll understand. Make a move, repent, turn back to you.

00:10:19--> 00:10:25

Who allowed you to wake up? Was it your money?

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

Wasn't your car?

00:16:05--> 00:16:08

00:16:18--> 00:16:22

Who allowed you to wake up? Did you? Why did Allah allow me to wake up?

Let today be the day you know I pray on and off, then make us a permanent on.

00:16:54--> 00:17:00

Let today be the day I make an initiative to do something good, at least for my own self.

00:17:02--> 00:17:09

For my sisters, let today be the day that I wear my hijab permanently never to take it off again, inshallah.

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

We want to learn from this experience.

00:17:15--> 00:17:20

Not just stand around like zombies, get salams and walk away with dead hearts.

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

But to make a change

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

Bucher was fortunate enough to know that it's coming. It's knocking on my doors, it's creeping up.

00:17:49--> 00:17:53

It was able to change and to repair it and to fix what he had to fix.

00:17:56--> 00:17:57

Most of us will not be this lucky.

00:18:00--> 00:18:03

Don't play Russian Roulette with your life.

00:18:05--> 00:18:11

Don't play Russian Roulette with your life. You only have one for crying out loud.

Come back to a law

I say I've tried you will never find the happiness. You only find that with the Lord of happiness alone.

00:18:40--> 00:18:41

Everything you're looking for.

00:18:46--> 00:18:58

But like scavengers, we're going around like wild beasts, trying to find our own happiness, our own success. Failing to understand that it's always a lie. Just go back to

00:19:02--> 00:19:04

your personal problems.
