00:00:10--> 00:00:12

Bismillah Alhamdulillah

00:00:13--> 00:00:29

wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. We start first and foremost by praising the king, the master of the Sustainer, the creator of the seven heavens in the earth. And we send peace and blessings upon our Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the greatest prophet of them all. Topic of tonight

00:00:30--> 00:00:46

was the reality of dunya. You know, my brothers, many, many, many of you, I'm sure you, you've either heard my talk on YouTube, or you've seen it or you know, but the reminder benefits the believer and I wanted to start off the night with a very, very famous story. I've mentioned that to you guys before I'm sure I have.

00:00:48--> 00:00:52

It's very famous on YouTube, I believe you sophist This made it very, very big lately.

00:00:54--> 00:01:15

Now the story within itself. The soul of the story is that it's an Israeli yet, and it's the stories from the people of Israel. And as far as the hook among these stories, is the Prophet of Allah, He says mentioned these stories, we don't say they true that say they false. So what I'm deriving halal Haram, we simply take the benefit of, you know, from the moral of the story.

00:01:17--> 00:01:54

But the story within itself, my brothers and sisters, and you know, as I share it, this couple of things I need to clean before I start, because I know some people get upset when I mentioned profits, and I use language that is the boys, you know, I speak the language of the area. And some people feel that that's somewhat disrespectful that you should better the language and well I my intention is is because when I when I use that language, people understand that better. So let me clear this up with any you know, I'm not doing it to disrespect. You know the story in any way, shape or form. But while I do it so that the people, especially the younger boys can really grasp

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

the message. So that being clear,

00:01:57--> 00:02:18

I want you to leave the story. You know, I really want the brothers and the sisters. Don't be entertained by the story that anger or well look what happened to this guy and the story. I want you to imagine you're that person. Because we're lucky in truth. Every person in this room has walked the shoes of this guy at one stage or another in his life. Anyway. So the story has

00:02:20--> 00:02:26

that in the time of La salatu salam in the time of Jesus. He was traveling with some of his companions

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

traveling with some of the boys.

00:02:30--> 00:02:34

So then they reach an area bro and they had the munchies. So they got hungry.

00:02:35--> 00:02:42

That's what I mean. Yeah, he was like he said, so they had the munchies. So the boys got hungry. They get to the you know, so they get to a particular area.

00:02:44--> 00:02:49

And Jesus Li Serato, Salah, he collected whatever money they had, they collected whatever money they had.

00:02:51--> 00:03:10

After collecting the money, he chose one of the companions, he says, look, you take this money, go into the town and buy us some food, we're hungry. So the man says, Here are my problems, takes the money goes into the town. When he goes into the town, he realizes that all the money could buy was what? three loaves of bread. That's all he could buy.

00:03:13--> 00:03:16

Now, I want to stop here because every one of us has been at this point in his life.

00:03:18--> 00:03:21

The man looks at and says bread oven got three loaves of bread.

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

And there must have been about 10 blocks back there waiting to eat.

00:03:26--> 00:03:35

And if the levels he had no chance whatsoever, so he's looking at the bread, he's thinking but if I take this back, how much am I going to possibly

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

so what does he do?

00:03:39--> 00:03:45

He hates one venom they he hates one he polishes are off and goes back to Jesus with only two loaves of bread.

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

When he goes back to Jesus and He gives him the two loaves of bread.

00:03:51--> 00:03:57

Jesus looks at the bread Allah Serato Salim looks at the man and he says to him, who ate the third loaf?

00:03:59--> 00:04:05

The third life the man's buckling sticking up the hill is stinky. When I ate the third one I was alone there was no one there.

00:04:06--> 00:04:09

So now Jesus is asking about the third. So what does he do?

00:04:10--> 00:04:16

This is where he got to where he said say says bro like he says I only bought two.

00:04:18--> 00:04:20

So Jesus doesn't argue them and you know,

00:04:21--> 00:04:35

that carry on the journey. Then I reach a destination. The Companions that were successful in hunting to be the hunted the D that killed it, they cooked the ADA to there's nothing left bones just a caucus.

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

Then Jesus calls the man over.

00:04:39--> 00:04:44

He sits him down the system look and then by the will of Allah azza wa jal a miracle through our last part Allah.

00:04:45--> 00:04:53

Jesus gives life to the animal in front of the man's very eyes. Imagine there's just bones and it comes back to life in front of the eyes anyone's boy?

00:04:55--> 00:04:58

So Jesus says to the man, I'm asking you by the one that gave life to this animal

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

But who ate that food? Lots of breadman

00:05:04--> 00:05:12

if the guy was a feeling pressure before now is thinking, yeah, Allah speaking cause I swear I only bought two.

00:05:14--> 00:05:16

And sometimes my brothers we make a mistake in life.

00:05:17--> 00:05:20

And you could have corrected that when you first made the mistake.

00:05:21--> 00:05:22

But because of a lie

00:05:24--> 00:05:47

and because of the lie, because we will put into a corner, we make the situation worse on ourselves. The man could have back then he could have said to Luke wallaga angry cousin Iran. I was afraid if I bring the food there's gotta be nothing left. Now look how deep he's falling. He's seen he knows very well bred animal came to life in front of anyway, Jesus doesn't argue with the men they continue on.

00:05:48--> 00:05:54

They eventually reach a river the river was over flooded. There was no boats to cross the river and they had to get to the other side.

00:05:55--> 00:06:10

Such as Jesus is retro Salaam, he, he gathers the companions, and by the will of Allah azza wa jal, Allah subhanaw taala allows them to walk on the surface of the water, all of them imagine all of them as a group, they walk on the surface of the water and then they cross the river and get to the other side.

00:06:12--> 00:06:14

And then Jesus calls the man over.

00:06:15--> 00:06:19

System I'm asking you by the one that allowed us to walk on the woman

00:06:20--> 00:06:21

who ate that third loaf of bread.

00:06:24--> 00:06:29

Now Now the man's feeling the heat right? He says honestly, there was only two.

00:06:31--> 00:06:34

Like carry carried on until they reach their final destination.

00:06:35--> 00:06:43

Jesus calls the man over, they sit down on the floor, and a salad Serato salon he gathers together three piles of the

00:06:44--> 00:06:54

imagine, imagine you this man. He puts together three piles of dirt he sits the brother down by the will of Allah azza wa jal, he turns the dirt into gold.

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

Then he says to the man who says Look, I tell you what

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

he says one pile is for you.

00:07:03--> 00:07:04

One pile is for me.

00:07:05--> 00:07:21

And the third is for the one that ate that third loaf of bread. The guy eat the bread. He sees the third life. He says I ate the bread. Like by now this pipe is involved as though the guy's eyes Bella Jesus, Bella matsubara.

00:07:24--> 00:07:27

So the mayor when he sees dunya, he sees gold. He says, Bro, I ate the third load.

00:07:29--> 00:07:35

I saw the surplus land. He says look for you. You have all three piles. But you can't join us anymore. Then.

00:07:37--> 00:07:42

What does the man say? says Go go go look at this fortune that I now have.

00:07:44--> 00:07:47

You know my brother's mileage? Let me let me let me stop you for a second.

00:07:48--> 00:07:51

How many of us were lucky we've sold ElDeen for small price.

00:07:53--> 00:08:00

Yes, we are working with profits. And yes, profits are sitting us down and telling us Yes, yes, I know. I know.

00:08:01--> 00:08:06

But how many of us for a small price in this world? For a small price we sold out in

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

so now the man's kicking back but he's looking at all these derbies. Looking at all this money. He's thinking Allahu Akbar. What do I buy first, bro? Do I buy the C 63 first is that the eight he didn't know what he's gonna buy first. Sitting there is looking at the gold is admiring it.

00:08:24--> 00:08:28

I saw his companions take off. Shortly after three thieves come by.

00:08:30--> 00:08:37

When they see the man and three piles of gold, the math is pretty straightforward, bro. First thing they knocked him off straightaway.

00:08:38--> 00:08:39

They killed them in

00:08:41--> 00:08:43

three thieves, three piles of gold. Hallo.

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

But they too are hungry.

00:08:47--> 00:08:58

So one of them says Look, I'll take some money. I'll go to the town or buy some food. We'll have a feed. And then everyone takes this pile of golden we call it a day. Beautiful man.

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

He goes to the town my brothers.

00:09:03--> 00:09:05

And on the way he starts thinking to himself, you know,

00:09:06--> 00:09:08

he's thinking how can I get that money man.

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

And while he's over there buying the food, the two that stayed behind the thinking how can we take his money?

00:09:18--> 00:09:23

So they planned and plotted and he planned and plotted. They said when he returns the key

00:09:25--> 00:09:28

message when he returns will kill Him

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

and who split in half.

00:09:33--> 00:09:41

When the man reaches the town, he buys the food. He says by 100% they're gonna do something to me. So what does he do? He poisons the food.

00:09:43--> 00:09:49

He comes back with the food before he could do anything they killed him straightaway, as he knew as he planned.

00:09:52--> 00:09:54

While I sat down the hall of fame

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

a little did I know the walk. The food was poison on my shoulder.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

After they also died.

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

Now Hey Sally SelectUSA lemonis companions they're walking back.

00:10:07--> 00:10:14

They seen their former companion, the three thieves and the three piles of gold sitting there untouched.

00:10:16--> 00:10:26

sighs Alisha to sell him he looks over at his companions. And he says to them, this is hired to dunya he says this is the life of this world. And this is what it does for the one who runs after a man

00:10:28--> 00:10:30

that's dunya my brothers and sisters.

00:10:32--> 00:10:38

Well, you can run and run and gather and collect as much as you want. You're leaving and you're leaving everything behind.

00:10:41--> 00:10:44

You're what what what are you leaving everything behind?

00:10:45--> 00:10:51

And my brothers honestly, how many of us we've sold our dean for a very small price.

00:10:52--> 00:10:57

And some of you think not cuz me I'm a soldier. I'm a I'm a soldier.

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

Well, like my brothers, the tricks have shaped on a far greater than us.

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

When I was in the UK, one of the machines there who was sharing the story with us, and I heard it personally and it's a very famous story.

00:11:13--> 00:11:16

Just to give you an example, one of them show you there.

00:11:17--> 00:11:27

He says I was hired by one of them a surgeon as an Imam. He says I was either as an Imam by one of the mosques. He says that I was new to the area.

00:11:28--> 00:11:32

Really only I this is a true story. So I really want you to

00:11:33--> 00:11:51

really live it out here. He says I was the Imam. And I used to take the bus from my house, to the town to that area. And then I would walk to the masjid. It wasn't far from there. And it says because I was the man when I would go to the masjid. And he went in Isabel and um, and the whole, the whole shebang.

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

He says so I will take this bus.

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

He says one day I'll jump on the bus.

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

And,

00:12:02--> 00:12:28

and it was a new bus driver. So it wasn't someone that that he had seen this as a jump on the bus. I paid him for my fare. And he gave me the change. He says when he gave me the change, I didn't really look at what he gave me until I went back to the back of the bus I sat down. He says when I sat down I looked at the money and I realized he gave me 20 pips in UK 20 pence and we were talking nothing but since like 1010 cents at most.

00:12:30--> 00:12:33

He says so you know, like I sat there and I said, Man, that guy gave me more

00:12:34--> 00:12:40

he said then then the conversation started happening in my head. And honestly, how many times have you been in this position?

00:12:42--> 00:12:53

He's thinking you know, it's 20 paints it's nothing but don't worry about it but but the hockey arminda embarrassed itself they're a big company anyway but and really what's Tony sins gonna do a

00:12:54--> 00:13:29

hell if he was deliver 100% he would have said BlackRock by the old bugs anyway, by the Orca for the whole government. Hell like repub. So the man sitting there, he's thinking, right, it's 20 cents, should I shouldn't I should I should I, he says that we're lucky for the whole trip. This is the conversation that's happening. He says, you know, he wasn't about the money. He was just. And then the chef was trying to say when I got to my bus stop. He said, when I got to my destination, he said, I got off my chair. I'm walking down the bus. I'm walking to the front door. He says, Well, I and I'm still saying to myself, do I give it that I give it? He says and then as soon as I got to

00:13:29--> 00:13:36

the bus driver. He said I don't know what went into me when he said my bus driver. I said to him, look when he gave me 20 extra.

00:13:38--> 00:13:41

He has not didn't give you 20 extra I guess Mark gave it intentionally

00:13:44--> 00:13:48

was given to me intentionally. He has been for three years I've been looking into slim.

00:13:50--> 00:13:54

And he said when I came in, I seen you dress the way you are dressed. I knew that you were in human

00:13:55--> 00:13:58

history said so today I was going to make my decision. If you are honest.

00:14:00--> 00:14:08

If you are honest, I was going to embrace the slim. But if you kept that money, or he said I knew that you were liars like everyone else lies.

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

So now the chef is speaking about himself.

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

He says I gave him the money. He says I got off the bus. He says when the bus drove off, he says I started crying.

00:14:22--> 00:14:31

I said to him Why? Because the man accepted the slammer, who's about to accept the semi against me. Bla bla bla bla, I said to him Why? He said we almost sold my Dean for 20 cents for

00:14:35--> 00:14:42

he said I almost sold this land. I sold the deal of a loss of a job for 20 cents. Now you're thinking bro would never do it.

00:14:44--> 00:15:00

But how many of us honestly, how many of us have sent our wives to suddenly send your wife the celery in a scarf was your bourbon evenly. Even today, niqab. She's got three kids in a prime one on her hand one in her stomach as she's walking in signing papers saying I'm a single mother

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

Why because you got a couple of bullets at the end of the week, bro.

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

So don't call me all y'all. I'll never do it. Why? Because I thought it comes in different ways, man.

00:15:12--> 00:15:20

How many of us heard for a little while a little while the brothers buying the C 63. So that you bought it for six grand man.

00:15:22--> 00:15:25

Why? Because he plays a little bit less than Judy.

00:15:27--> 00:15:30

Mostly with a beam, signing on paper lying.

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

Why to save a couple of bucks?

00:15:35--> 00:15:39

He says I almost sold my deal for 20 cents. That's dunya Well,

00:15:41--> 00:15:42

00:15:44--> 00:15:53

00:16:02--> 00:16:12

Allows origin says about dunya and he created dunya. So he knows that better than you better than me better than anyone he says will not hire to dunya in lamotta.

00:16:14--> 00:16:16

You know one of the opinion is about metallic.

00:18:07--> 00:18:25

It's it's words together. I'm the biggest flange on the face of the planet, all my levels. But I was not looking for words, what we're looking for action. Because actions my brothers they speak far louder than words fall out of the woods, the same woman that tells your brother I believe in Allah. And I believe that.

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

And I believe it's

00:18:28--> 00:18:33

the same people, the same people for selectel fudger. Everyone is.

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

But then at 630 in the morning.

00:18:46--> 00:18:47

He's up on his feet.

00:18:50--> 00:18:51

With a V and a cigarette.

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

No one to walk

00:18:55--> 00:18:59

home. But seriously, what have you chosen? These are?

00:19:00--> 00:19:05

The same home addresses. whenever it's a law, a law a law profession is asleep.

00:19:07--> 00:19:11

But then when it comes to work or law, if it's bustles in cars, you got to be at three in the morning.

00:19:15--> 00:19:16

What have we chosen?

00:19:18--> 00:19:19

What have we chosen?

00:19:23--> 00:19:32

So it's not about you know, you you ask yourself what am I really really chosen? Have I chosen Dean? Or have I chosen dunya? What has gotten the better of me?

00:19:35--> 00:19:38

So as I saw him, he knew the reality of this dunya man.

00:19:39--> 00:19:43

Sometimes people think that you know what being a Muslim means you have to be a hater for dunya No.

00:19:45--> 00:19:55

The Prophet of Allah didn't come to tell us the hate dunya No, he came to expose dunya to its reality. He came to show you how to take the best from dunya and leave the rest of it behind.

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

He came to teach us and he says, He says,

00:20:03--> 00:20:13

He says the dunya melona woman loan mafia. He says this world is cursed. There's no good in this world Trust me. He says whatever is close, except what

00:20:16--> 00:20:23

he says except the remembrance of Allah more or less, he says except the remembrance of Allah or seeking knowledge or teaching or anything around this.

00:20:24--> 00:20:26

What's this world? My brothers Really?

00:20:28--> 00:20:37

Well, it my brothers, you take nothing with you, my sisters, you take nothing with you. This world is temporary. It's temporary. Today, you eat tomorrow, you're gone.

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

That's the truth.

00:20:41--> 00:20:49

What did one of the kings of the past he says to his men, he says, when you bury me, bury me and stick my hands out of the grave.

00:20:50--> 00:21:00

just bury me naked, and stick my hands out of the grave. So his men were amazed. I said, cuz they only manage we understand that you want to go naked.

00:21:02--> 00:21:10

But why stick your hands out of the grave? He says let it be known that this king when he left dunya he left empty handed he took he took nothing with him bro.

00:21:14--> 00:21:22

My brother's voila, he all your problems and all your dramas. And whatever you're going through, it's got to finish as soon as your time in this dunya finishes well.

00:21:26--> 00:21:30

One of the great cool affair of the soma, one of the great leaders

00:21:31--> 00:21:38

century centuries ago, yeah, I think he conquered almost one third. One third of the world was under his empire.

00:21:41--> 00:21:45

And then one of the scholars that he was sitting with, he says, look,

00:21:46--> 00:21:51

look at what we've accomplished. He's telling the scholar look over accomplished stars. Dunya is concerned.

00:21:53--> 00:22:02

So the scholar system system, but you know what the equivalent of your accomplishment? everything you own, says you know what it is in reality? There's no

00:22:03--> 00:22:05

system. I'll tell you what it is.

00:22:07--> 00:22:18

system if I invited you over? Look at look at Mallesh it's a bit deep. Yeah. I think about the SCADA system system. Look, if I invited you over to my house,

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

and I fed you a lot of salty food.

00:22:23--> 00:22:30

And you became very thirsty after very thirsty, and there was no water, no water anyway.

00:22:32--> 00:22:37

He says, and I possess the only cup of water. He says, what would you pay for the cup of water?

00:22:39--> 00:22:42

He has brought up yesterday but I'll give you half my kingdom

00:22:44--> 00:22:45

for for a cup of water.

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

So if I, what if I give you the water.

00:22:52--> 00:22:57

And then you have to go toilet to do a number one. And you're busting

00:22:58--> 00:23:10

and you couldn't go anyway. And you're really really busting. He says and I was the only one that had the means to allow you to relieve yourself. He says what would you pay for you to relieve yourself?

00:23:11--> 00:23:13

system bro, I'll give you the other half.

00:23:14--> 00:23:18

The system here and all of your kingdom are worth a cup of water and a bit of urine.

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

He says you and your whole kingdom.

00:23:24--> 00:23:25

In reality, what are

00:23:27--> 00:23:30

you prepared to give up for a cup of water?

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

And a little twinkle at the end? bruh

00:23:35--> 00:23:36

that's reality.

00:23:39--> 00:23:39

That's reality.

00:23:41--> 00:24:03

My brothers and sisters, I'm not here to tell you what I hate these days. But take dunia for what it is. It's temporary men. So lots of Allahu alayhi wa sallam he was written up the love Norma and he says stop the love normal young boy. Abdullah was nicknamed block was the nickname of Abdullah the son of armour of the football. He was nicknamed Miss Noonan sooner.

00:24:05--> 00:24:07

That was his name much known.

00:24:08--> 00:24:26

wack wacky, crazy. moonwalk sooner. I have the love. No, I'm not to follow the footprints of rasulillah to the tee, to the tee. To the point he was that bad. Good really by now. He was that bad.

00:24:27--> 00:24:32

That once he was walking in a place on his horse,

00:24:33--> 00:24:43

and he was walking and there was some people there and there was nothing there. And as he was walking, he ducked his head down and then he put his head back up. People looked around and said What is wrong with this book?

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

So I said to him up the wall, what did you do that for? He says, I remember years ago, when I was with Rasul Allah, He came to this place, there was a tree right there, and there was a branch and when he was walking, he he bent his head down at that point and put his head back up.

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

He said I didn't want to lose. He says I didn't want to cross that place and not do the action of Rasulullah even though the tree wasn't there, man.

00:25:09--> 00:25:11

He was that crack to the point

00:25:12--> 00:25:21

where the branch wasn't even there anymore. He says, I wasn't gonna go past until I bend my head like rasulillah better. And he followed him to the tee.

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

Abdullah says I was a young boy.

00:25:25--> 00:25:30

He says Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he grabbed me by my shoulders.

00:25:31--> 00:25:36

And for the Arabs at that time, when you grab someone by his shoulders, what does it mean?

00:25:38--> 00:25:42

It means bro, what I'm about to tell you now is very important.

00:25:43--> 00:25:50

Sub Los Angeles la Sallam grabbed me by looked at this animal. He says he grabbed me by my shoulders and he says of the law.

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

He says confit. Dunya Kanika hurry.

00:25:55--> 00:25:56

Are you bureau civilian?

00:25:57--> 00:25:58

says I belong

00:26:00--> 00:26:03

leaving this dunya like a stranger

00:26:04--> 00:26:05

like a traveler

00:26:07--> 00:26:15

and the law says we're lucky from that day on from that day on. He says if I live to see the morning I never planned on seeing the might

00:26:17--> 00:26:21

and if Allah gave me like to see them I he says by a lot I never planned on seeing the morning

00:26:23--> 00:26:27

look at the example look at the analogy this wasallam is giving us a traveler

00:26:28--> 00:26:39

a stranger my brothers have you ever been to a place in your stranger? anyway anyway look I'm sure you know I know for me maybe you know like when i when i when i go down move

00:26:41--> 00:26:55

wherever I go clues on bubble Bay and whatever I have to walk out and go to the shops Yeah, Allah Get me the hell out of there, bro. I'm uncomfortable. I'm uncomfortable while you're Fisher aura Fisher avora. You

00:26:57--> 00:27:03

You don't even absorb the area like i don't i don't even just get me out. Right. Get me out. That's a stranger.

00:27:05--> 00:27:09

He says we're a traveler. And I love the analogy of the traveler. Why?

00:27:10--> 00:27:14

My brothers when you travel my sisters in this dunya when you travel? What do you take with you? When?

00:27:18--> 00:27:27

Do you take your car? Do you take your house? Do you take a bag man? You take a bag if you let me take a really big bag. But nevertheless, it's a bag.

00:27:28--> 00:27:39

True. It's a bag? Maybe to give you that a silly take on other than that, really? But in all in all What do you take with you? What do you travel with?

00:27:41--> 00:27:42

The necessities run

00:27:43--> 00:28:01

under going to an area that I don't know. What do you do usually jump on online? What's the weather like there? If it's really hot? Do you take winter clothes with you? He might take a jumper in case I get caught out minimums, minimums, bare minimums. Do you take all your wardrobe? Is that what I need? Man?

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

That's how you should really live in dunya.

00:28:08--> 00:28:41

the bare minimum man, what do I need to get by? What do I need to get by? And then he says what you're a traveler. He says this world. He says he's speaking about speaking about himself says my example. My example to this world is like someone walking by someone who's struggling. He sees a tree. He sees the tree. Someone's walking the desert. He sees the tree. He says he takes some rest under the tree, take some rest for an hour or two. And then picks himself up and continues on. He says that stay. That's two hours of rest. He says that's my

00:28:44--> 00:28:48

brothers and sisters. We're lucky. That's what you're doing here and

00:28:49--> 00:28:57

anyone who traveled anyone ever flown to Saudi or to Lebanon? Yeah. You fly with us to

00:28:58--> 00:29:09

Abu Dhabi, Dubai and you they're in transit usually For how long? Three four hours tops yeah three four hours you they're in transit. Look at the analogy of Swaziland

00:29:10--> 00:29:11

he's telling you don't

00:29:13--> 00:29:15

really do here is dubai airport.

00:29:16--> 00:29:20

Really nice dubai airport. And your destination is where?

00:29:22--> 00:29:28

wherever it is, whether it's Saudi or Lebanon, but in reality, what's your destination? Where does everyone want to go to gentleman

00:29:30--> 00:29:44

and he did you ever in your life go to Dubai airport. I want you to imagine million Yes, me and yes, we went to Dubai. And we're in transit there for three hours. Okay, and my connecting flight is at gate 54

00:29:46--> 00:29:56

simultaneous arrive. He looks at the time it says bro we've only got a few hours man. There's no point was Guy 54 and he starts walking off the gate 64 says members come along

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

via shaurya

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

value

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

Disable rogue amenities

00:30:04--> 00:30:09

some shops but have a booth you can smoke in it and if you're outside the house smell a roll and you can smell it

00:30:11--> 00:30:17

system you broke up connecting flies in a few hours we need to be waiting again 54

00:30:19--> 00:30:23

cosman all right let's just enjoy our time here

00:30:24--> 00:30:26

it's just me but it's an input

00:30:27--> 00:30:29

to me but I want to buy a house when

00:30:31--> 00:30:42

you're laughing but that's what we're all doing he might say buying houses have now come to me by you saying No no no, but the concept the concept of

00:30:44--> 00:30:49

but if I told you I went to Dubai airport and I bought a house for a wife for business

00:30:51--> 00:30:52

hours

00:30:53--> 00:30:53

it took me

00:30:58--> 00:31:02

why you will love it because we know collecting for

00:31:03--> 00:31:15

four hours What are you doing four hours right go to the toilet grab the feed, buy a sandwich you want to buy something small for someone but that's all you really do and then you got to go before you wait for your flight

00:31:19--> 00:31:20

well I four hours is a long time

00:31:23--> 00:31:25

no one is guaranteed four minutes

00:31:27--> 00:31:28

and in reality what are we all doing them

00:31:30--> 00:31:33

we're making money a lot our men

00:31:35--> 00:31:38

we're making more money our home

00:31:40--> 00:31:45

and my brothers the reality of it all is we need to understand and I'll end with this consider brothers are getting tired

00:31:48--> 00:31:52

the reality of dunya and I gave this example when I was the last time you know when we spoke about gentlemen

00:31:53--> 00:31:58

brothers or Lost Planet Allah He designed dunya in such a way it can never please you

00:31:59--> 00:32:07

you can never be satisfied yeah my brother my sister will love it no matter what you have. You will never ever be happy

00:32:08--> 00:32:15

designed by a law this way. The only time you will ever see true happiness is where is in gentlemen

00:32:17--> 00:32:21

this world can never satisfy the hunger of men never.

00:32:22--> 00:32:25

And I give this example all the time it's a funny example but it's true.

00:32:27--> 00:32:33

And I'm sure many of you suspect about myself so no one gets upset or gets offended I remember when I was young I was a little boy

00:32:36--> 00:32:45

because I don't remember when the Nintendo Switch came out Yeah, but the original though the Xbox One the one who had the.com when when

00:32:46--> 00:32:47

that

00:32:49--> 00:32:50

when that thing came out bro

00:32:53--> 00:32:56

I couldn't care less about anything else in the world.

00:32:57--> 00:33:22

All my happiness and all my soccer and all my concern and all that I ever wanted to live for was that Nintendo bro little boy man mom that mom that cleaned the house or cleaned the car or clean my shoes or clean this or clean that please please please please please please and everyone else around me is buying it and we'll let you know as at the time my mom and dad were doing this Nintendo business

00:33:25--> 00:33:41

but in Bihar I'm burning. Why? Because I was convinced like you're convinced that the house you want to buy is gonna bring you happiness like you're convinced to have a car you really want is going to bring you happiness. I was convinced saying that this Nintendo was going to change my life.

00:33:42--> 00:33:45

And to my mom eventually she saved up enough money.

00:33:46--> 00:33:48

And then she bought me dinner in Canada

00:33:49--> 00:33:57

and voila smiles from even happiness true happiness rather than a high school finish these ones

00:33:58--> 00:34:03

these ones why happiness is their happiness was at home.

00:34:04--> 00:34:05

How long did my happiness last?

00:34:07--> 00:34:09

Until the Super Nintendo came out

00:34:11--> 00:34:16

and because it took my mom so long to buy it she bought it almost before the new release of the Super Nintendo.

00:34:18--> 00:34:25

So the gap between my Nintendo and the super was on very short bruh wasn't like the guy who bought it three years ago. Yeah Allah

00:34:26--> 00:34:28

Come on, man.

00:34:29--> 00:34:31

So what happened to my happiness?

00:34:33--> 00:34:40

This isn't happiness. This is chat. I can continue on like this. So I come up to my mom. Hello, mom. You know

00:34:43--> 00:34:46

can I vote for us now online honey, thank you very much, but mom,

00:34:48--> 00:34:49

Super Nintendo.

00:34:52--> 00:34:54

This was my happiness and I was convinced.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

And even though I had a Nintendo, I had that thing that was supposed to give me happiness.

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

But where was my heart now?

00:35:02--> 00:35:09

I can't keep telling you that Super Mario Brothers and you're telling me that Mario Kart doesn't work. Tell me about the left and the right button Mr.

00:35:11--> 00:35:24

Misery. What was supposed to bring me happiness was now bringing me the biggest misery of my life. And I kept insisting and begging my mom until she got me up. She taught me discipline Nintendo

00:35:26--> 00:35:26

Nintendo

00:35:27--> 00:35:29

the Nintendo 64 came out

00:35:31--> 00:35:32

and this is my life bro.

00:35:33--> 00:35:37

Nintendo 64 then the Nintendo GameCube then the Nintendo my body

00:35:38--> 00:35:48

and my heart is being ripped apart by left and right, left and right ultimate happiness ultimate lows ultimate happiness, ultimate love, until eventually I got to a point where a lot

00:35:49--> 00:35:51

is to play computer games.

00:35:52--> 00:35:54

I gotta start driving bro.

00:35:55--> 00:36:21

Every one of you has walked through these shoes. I was convinced beyond all doubt the misery My life is because I can't drive. I need a license. Then I got my ILS

Many of us when we when we say and describe worships dunya we think that this guy puts $100 note down on the floor and he makes sense that word. No.

00:44:35--> 00:44:36

You know what it means to worship

00:44:38--> 00:44:39

means to obey.

00:44:41--> 00:44:42

To worship someone is to

00:44:43--> 00:44:44

00:44:46--> 00:44:53

Someone my boss says to me get up at 7am up at seven and a lot of me wake up at four and I wake up at 400 I have a

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

boss says to me no Juma Allah says to me

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

Juma and I don't get a Juma because my hero I really obey Allah or dunya

00:45:06--> 00:45:10

so when I do my worship in the law my wish

00:45:13--> 00:45:14

to be gone now.

00:45:16--> 00:45:17

That's a heavy armor.

00:45:18--> 00:45:20

Brothers and sisters, that's reality.

00:45:21--> 00:45:25

That's reality. This old my brothers is what money you take nothing with you man.

00:45:27--> 00:45:28

You take nothing we fever

00:45:29--> 00:45:32

no matter who you are, no matter how many houses you buy,

00:45:33--> 00:45:41

no matter how many jabril Allah has salat wa salam it comes down to Muhammad samama values and imagine, imagine, imagine

00:45:43--> 00:45:48

it comes down to the Prophet of Allah, look at this conversation by looked at this conversation. Imagine this conversation.

00:45:50--> 00:45:53

As you breathe, he says to Mohammed, Mohammed, Sheikh,

00:45:54--> 00:46:02

Mohammed, a messenger of Allah, live for as much as you desire, eventually you will walk, you will die when he

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

says you will die.

00:46:06--> 00:46:12

He says Mohammed, love whoever you want. Eventually you will walk, you will depart,

00:46:14--> 00:46:21

says Mohammed Do as you please. Eventually you'll be held accountable and responsible for your actions when

00:46:24--> 00:46:30

my brothers and sisters don't get caught up in this world. Why this world is nothing. Take this world for its reality. It's an illusion.

00:46:32--> 00:46:42

Yesterday, we were young, healthy, feel good looking. Whatever. Now we started to feel pain in our knees. Now we're starting to get some white hairs coming out. Now we're starting tomorrow you're gone, man.

00:46:43--> 00:46:44

That's the cycle right?

00:46:45--> 00:47:03

My brothers and sisters, we need to make Dean our focus we need to make our lives. Our focus. The scholars give a beautiful analogy. Scholars give a beautiful, beautiful analogy. And I really want to share it with you here. They say imagine the imagine Dean, imagine Dean was the sun

00:47:04--> 00:47:06

and your shadow was dunya.

00:47:07--> 00:47:14

They say if you take the deen so the sun and he fell it behind your back meaning you make it the least of your worries

00:47:15--> 00:47:45

was the sun now behind me. So as my shadow now it's in front of me. They say if you throw the end behind you the sun, your shadow will be in front of you. And no matter how fast you run after your shadow, You'll never catch your eye because it's a matter of human. No matter how much you run after this dunya my brother You never ever, ever catch it. But then they say, you know, if you grab the sun, if you grab the dean, and you put it in front of you. And you make that your focus and you make that your priority. Where's your shadow now?

00:47:46--> 00:47:48

Now it's running after you isn't it?

00:47:50--> 00:47:51

Now it's chasing you.

00:47:52--> 00:48:03

And that's the reality. When you make D your focus, you make Alonzo gel you focus Dean dunya will run after you. And then any time you want you don't have to go far but I turn around and I pick it up today.

00:48:04--> 00:48:05

It's there.

00:48:09--> 00:48:12

But that is managed we've gone too long.

00:48:13--> 00:48:23

Anyway, we ask Allah azza wa jal to bring the reality of dunya into our house. And my brothers and sisters, things to take home now is,

00:48:24--> 00:48:27

Hey, get married the throw from the huddle room a lot of

00:48:30--> 00:48:34

things we need to do is continuously speak about the reality of the year.

00:48:35--> 00:48:57

Don't let things grow in your heart. You know what I do? I'll share this with you. This is my personal tactic. Then go around and put it down people's throats and people say well, this is teaching people do this to you. So this is what I do to myself. Whenever I see something that hacked my heart starts doing these unsupervised like littering. What do I say? You stamp on your a lot of anticlimax.

00:48:59--> 00:49:01

shut away, shut away reality.

00:49:09--> 00:49:43

Shadow Don't let things grow in your heart. When brothers are sitting there and they talking about something talking about donia talking about how men This is an hour hectic This is with wisdom. Try to redirect the focus, try to redirect the focus. And this is what Sam did after one of the battles after one of the battles one of the companions he you know, after the battle the companions used to take the the beauty of war whatever was left the gold, the silver, the the lives, whatever was left swords. So one of the companions and for companions, this was the most helpful money.

00:49:45--> 00:49:59

So anyone who killed you took whatever he had said companions just to take this and then they used to trade amongst one another. So one of the companions he traded so much till he made the most money on that day. He made the most money

00:50:00--> 00:50:12

He comes to the Prophet of Allah is happy. He says, a prophet of Allah no one today was more successful than me. Meaning what? No one made more money than I did. So this was a solemn look at our teacher and

00:50:14--> 00:50:36

he sees what he sees now that he's, he's somehow being affected by dunya. So what does the Prophet of Allah do? He redirected it. He says, Now I know someone that made more money than you saw that so that competitors is no no no prophet of Allah Trust me. I know cuz I was on the battlefield. I dealt with everyone I tried to do with everyone. And I made more money than everyone. It says, No, no, I know someone that that that made more.

00:50:38--> 00:50:38

He says.

00:50:40--> 00:50:49

He says anyone that pray to God, now I feel like that sooner Lila Allah, anyone that pray to the God, it's worth more than the world and what it contains

00:50:52--> 00:51:08

worth more than the world and what it contains. And that's the truth. We know the reality of dunya we know the reality of dunya our hearts burn when money is taken away from us, our hearts they burn. And I'll give you this example. If for money if anyone he had a name

00:51:09--> 00:51:20
