00:01:15--> 00:02:05

blessings upon His Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I remind myself and remind you as Allah azza wa jal reminds us in His holy book, are you who believe be God conscious of Allah, to not die except in the state of Islam, to not die except in the state of submission? My brothers since the very beginning of time, since the very beginning of the creation of men, we have been at war, at war with a sworn enemy Allah subhanho wa Taala in multiple places in the Quran, he reminds the human being that Oh, human being Oh, son of man, shaytaan Iblees is your enemy, so therefore take him as an enemy. So much so. So severe is this animosity of shaitan with the human being, that from the

00:02:05--> 00:02:55

moment you are created, there's a very nice narration that says that the first thing you know, ever watch the child come into this world, the first thing he does is he cries, and there's a narration that says, that is because shaitan waits for the baby to be born, and then he pricks him. he stabs him until he makes him cry. And he says to him, you and I, we are enemies. So imagine the moment that I came out of my mother shaitan was waiting there, waiting there to declare his war with me and remind me that I am your enemy, until the very last moment of your life. Guess who will also be there waiting. The same enemy. Abdullah Abdullah Mohammed Rafi Lata Langhammer. He says, I was there

00:02:55--> 00:03:09

when my father was dying. Mm. Imagine a man had been humbled one of the great imams of this of this Omar Abdullah, his son, he narrates, he narrates the story, and he says, I was there when my father was dying.

00:03:10--> 00:03:50

And he says, and he was laying there on the bed, and he was going through these, what they call Sakura tell mode, the last moments of life, you know, he's in and out of consciousness. He says, and as my father gained consciousness, he says, law bad law bad. No, not yet. No, not yet. So Abdullah says, you know, I'm, he says, I was curious that why is my father saying no, no, Chip, doesn't he want to die? Is he afraid of death? He says, and then my father, he lost consciousness. He says, I waited, then I was anxious. And I was worried. He said, until I waited until my father, he gained consciousness again. And therefore I asked him, I said to my Father, why were you saying no, not

00:03:50--> 00:04:37

yet? Don't you want to die? And then, and then Lima, Muhammad, he says to his son, Abdullah, he says, to know my son, I did not say no, not yet, because I didn't want to die. I said, No, not yet. Because shaitan was standing in front of me. And he was biting on his fingernails, and he was telling me, oh, Akhmad, you have slipped out of my hands mad, you've slipped out of my hands. So therefore, I replied, and I said to him, No, not yet. Not until I'm dead and gone is the war over between you and I say from the very moment I was born, shaitan is there and at the very last moment of my life, shavon is there and his day and his oath and his promise to Allah is to show that I will

00:04:37--> 00:05:00

be ungrateful to try and distract me and take me away from Allah azza wa jal. And one of the biggest tricks of shaitan is to belittle any good that you do. This is one of the traps and the tricks of shaitan is to belittle any good that you can do. And you find Allahu Akbar and amazing chapter in

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

Rio de Sala hain about numerous ways of doing good. You see we live in a time now where unfortunately, let's take boxing for instance as a sport.

00:05:11--> 00:05:55

You know, everyone likes to think of himself as this heavyweight puncher, this boxer that's going to knock out his opponent with that heavy right hook. And so therefore any other punch other than the right hook, unfortunately even even within ourselves as Muslims we tend to look down upon and this is actually from shaitan is that he is that oh he did? Is that oh you gave Is that all you could do? This is from shaitaan the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in the authentic hadith, never belittle any act of good Don't belittle it. Don't let shaitan fool you and convinced you that is that he know the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is never believed

00:05:55--> 00:06:33

any act of good. If there's any good that you can do, no matter what it is, do it. Allah azza wa jal, he says in the Quran for men YAML myth color the rotten Hira Yara, imagine Allah azza wa jal says anyone who does an atom's weight of good What is an atom? how insignificant is an atom to any human being something you can't even see with your own eyes. But Allah azza wa jal says, anyone who doesn't atoms weight of good, he shall verily see it on the Day of Resurrection. So my brothers and sisters, there are numerous ways of doing good.

00:06:35--> 00:06:58

Jump on them. Take every single opportunity that you can. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, even meeting your brother with a cheerful face, meeting someone with a smile on your face, that's a circle. That's an act of charity. That's that's that's a means that Allah azza wa jal can reward you with good anything.

00:06:59--> 00:07:32

One lie, it doesn't have to be dramatic. You know, sometimes we think that look, if I can't give $10,000 in charity, well, therefore I shouldn't give any charity whatsoever. Why? How do you know? How do you know by Allah that one good deed, that one good deed could be the difference. could be the difference between Jenna and Jan than that one good deed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that Allah loves the small action that's consistent. Allah loves this more than the large action, but it was a one off.

00:07:33--> 00:08:14

Know that consistency, even if it's small, Allah azza wa jal, he loves it. any act of good, do it. Don't waste time will love my brothers, this is shaitan at his absolute best when he makes you feel insignificant that whatever good you are going to do that really in the scheme of things, what's it going to really change? No, is it good? Yes, then do it. Do it Don't worry about how, when, where and why and really isn't going to change anything. That's a loss job, your job and my job is that if Allah presents me with a situation with an opportunity where I can contribute something, contribute something. Imagine the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the authentic hadith. He says there

00:08:14--> 00:08:19

was a man running in Jannah, a man was running and he was enjoying his paradise.

00:08:20--> 00:08:21

And guess what made him into

00:08:23--> 00:08:54

he saw that a branch from a tree was coming out, and that it was in the way of the Muslims he and he it was in the way of the walkway. So the man decided, he said to himself, I can see that this branch has become an inconvenience, it's become a nuisance for the Muslims. So I shall remove it to make things easier for the Muslims. That was the very action that made this man run around in his gender and enjoy his gender for what, what did he do? Well, like in the scheme of things,

00:08:55--> 00:09:04

he removed a branch, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, the good and the bad deeds of my own was presented to me.

00:09:05--> 00:09:30

He said, and I found that removing a harmful object from the road was put in the good deeds. Something as little as this abou right out of the lot, Allen who in the authentic narration, you know, he calls upon the Muslim women and he says, oh, Muslim women, or Muslim women don't belittle any act of good.

00:09:31--> 00:09:38

Even if it's giving your neighbor, the houfy and imagine the foot of an animal, what value does that have.

00:09:39--> 00:09:44

But to give that as a gift to your neighbor, is an act of good

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

and this is Islam that I believe should be the one who does good wherever he is, no matter what the situation is, no matter what the vibe. If you see an opportunity to do good, jump on it because by a lie, you don't

00:10:00--> 00:10:24

Know what may come out of this. Think of it as a seed that you planted into the earth. You don't know what's going to come out of it. We do what we do for Allah's pleasure and then we see whatever Allah wants to do with it. And atoms Wait, and atoms Wait, you shall see it's reward on the Day of Judgment. You know, the one of the names of the Day of Judgment is, it's called the day of regret.

00:10:25--> 00:10:38

Why, why is it the day of regret? Because it is on that day, but of course, then it's too late. It's too late for us to come back. It is on that day we will then realize the weight, the amount,

00:10:40--> 00:10:46

the scale the proportion of things that we deemed as insignificant

00:10:47--> 00:11:29

to say Subhan Allah when hamdulillah Willa ilaha illa Allah Allahu Akbar words words that are they you know, they're very light on the tongue. But you look at your life and you think man, I'm a sinner I have this harm and that harm and I haven't been to the measured in I don't know how long and I can't you know, I mean so much darkness. What's a word going to do for me? Imagine a tree in paradise because of a Subhan Allah, the tree and the famous Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, Kelly Matan huffy, fatten Allah listen. He says, you know there are two words they're very light, very light on the tongue, meaning that they flow. They flow off the tongue

00:11:29--> 00:11:38

easily. Kelly Medan huffy fatten Alison fucky Latin, but they're heavy, they're mighty they have so much weight.

00:11:39--> 00:11:44

In the in the scales of Allah azza wa jal is so heavy.

00:11:45--> 00:12:01

So Pamela would be handy. So Pamela Levine so panelo behind the so Pamela Levine, ways of doing good, Willa, don't belittle any opportunity. You know, imagine imagine the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he narrates to us.

00:12:03--> 00:12:08

You know, sometimes you think I'm such a sinner, what good can I possibly do?

00:12:10--> 00:12:27

A story was narrated that a woman from Banu is thrown in who was a prostitute. Imagine this was the woman's occupation, right? The worst of sins, one of the worst of scenes, things that are unimaginable, right? This woman did this for a living.

00:12:28--> 00:12:33

And this was this was her job that a prostitute was walking.

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

And that she seen a dog that was thirsty.

00:12:38--> 00:12:49

Again, now this is shaitan This is how shaitan works. in the scheme of things really, what is she going to do? And look so Pamela Annie from a Muslim perspective, it's a dog.

00:12:50--> 00:12:52

A dog that is nudges.

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

You and it's not like one like it was a beautiful, colorful parrot that touched her heart or no, no, no, he was it was

00:13:01--> 00:13:03

a stray dog, no owner.

00:13:05--> 00:13:23

But this woman, she was able to get to the world. Waterworld and drink and that she seen the first in the eyes of this dog and that this dog couldn't get to it. So something moved her in her heart. So she did an act of good. She brought some water to the thirsty dog and she allowed the dog to drink.

00:13:24--> 00:13:31

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that Allah azza wa jal entered her into paradise, because of this one good deed that she did.

00:13:34--> 00:13:45

And this is Islam. Don't belittle any act of good. any opportunity you get jump on it. Anything if it's goodness, be the first one day.

00:13:46--> 00:13:54

Don't be fooled. Don't try to be the buxa that only throws the heavyweight punches the knockout punches. No, there's multiple jobs in between.

00:13:55--> 00:13:59

Right and you wait for that moment. You wait for that moment.

00:14:00--> 00:14:09

Any good that you can do and inshallah I will end with this one Hadith, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his describing the Day of Judgment.

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

And, and this is what's amazing.

00:14:15--> 00:14:18

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaking about the Day of Judgment,

00:14:20--> 00:14:23

the hardest day in all of our lives.

00:14:26--> 00:14:27

And he describes

00:14:28--> 00:14:41

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, Every one of you will stand in front of Allah and speak to Allah directly. And there shall be no interpreter between you and Allah.

00:14:44--> 00:14:48

So right away, you, you sense the tone.

00:14:49--> 00:14:52

you sense the severity of the Hadeeth

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

and then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he continues on to say, he says, and then you would look to your right

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

And all that you will see is the deeds that you did. And then you will look to your left and all you will see are the deeds that you brought forward and then you will look in front of you.

00:15:14--> 00:15:20

And you shall see jahannam the fire of hell burning in front of you. What a description.

00:15:22--> 00:15:24

So you think, you know,

00:15:26--> 00:15:29

you seek Allahu Akbar, how can I save my soul from this?

00:15:31--> 00:15:36

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, So save yourself from jahannam

00:15:39--> 00:15:43

even if it's by giving half a date, in charity,

00:15:44--> 00:15:45

half a date.

00:15:47--> 00:16:21

Imagine now I'm standing I'm going to be speaking to a law I've got john m in front of me, I've got my deeds to my right and to my left, and people are scared and people are petrified. And this is the scariest day of my life. And this is the moment of no return and now the Prophet is advising me see how shaitan is telling you brother, if it's not hedge, if it's not a million dollars in charity, if you're not going to give up a limb, you know, in a no no, no, this is this is shaitan belittling anything that you do is that it is that all you could do Is that all you could say is that or that you could give an imagine your industry you know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying

00:16:21--> 00:16:25

so save yourself, save yourself from this calamity from this small sliver.

00:16:28--> 00:16:33

Even if by you giving half a seed, half a date in charity.

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

And this is Islam,

00:16:37--> 00:16:42

that any good that you do, you will find that on the Day of Judgment,

00:16:43--> 00:16:44

and today you are alive.

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

Your golden opportunity to make the most of it.

00:16:50--> 00:16:53

Don't waste my brothers and sisters. Don't waste your time.

00:16:54--> 00:17:03

Any goodness or law, any animal hair, anything for it. Anything no matter how insignificant it seems to you.

00:17:05--> 00:17:07

It brings the pleasure of Allah.

00:17:08--> 00:17:42
