00:01:18--> 00:02:07

the time of death, while your tongue was busy with the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala the hadith is narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas and Massini may Allah be pleased with him, he said, Jerry are the yearning in law Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to baboons came to the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him. And each one of them, ask them a question. So the first said oh prophet of Allah, au Nursey Hi, and the second asked him a Ulam any higher. So the first set are universal, higher which means which when of all the people is best, which of all the people is best? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to burly man, Paula are more who were Hashanah, Amarillo,

00:02:08--> 00:02:28

and Toba means glad tiding for a person who lives long and does good. Also, tuba is explained by some of the commentators of the Hadith as one of the names of paradise, a person who lives long and he does good to be, which is Paradise would be his abode. So that is the answer to the first question.

And that is similar to a hadith which was studied before in which the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam has it Hi, Rocco Montoya, who were Hassan Amaroo the best of all of you is the one who lives long and does good.

best, making the best. Okay? So in order to be the best of the best, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when he was asked Are you will Imani Hi, which deed is the best. He said unto her your dunya while you said a lot to bone, music Rila the word rot means moist,

00:03:37--> 00:03:46

you don't open your mouth, then all of a sudden, you may end up having like dry mouth, you haven't been moving your tongue, moving your saliva. So the word is a metaphor.

short break, please stay tuned. Islam is a way of life a complete

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

is a complete with me, it's complete with me.

00:11:11--> 00:11:40

Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Barakatuh. And welcome back. A quick reminder that we've been talking today about a hadith in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam presented an answer to two questions by two bedrooms, the first about the bestow people so the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said the one who lives long and does good, and the second about the best of deeds to do in this long life, he said, to live this life while your tongue is busy with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:11:41--> 00:11:44

as a result of keeping yourself busy while you're alive.

00:11:45--> 00:12:37

With the remembrance of Allah, you will automatically earn the confirmation and the affirmation of Allah Almighty at the time, which you need most in Surah Ibrahim is be upon him a lot of Matthew said, you said bit Hola Hola, Dena am and will Bilka will Acerbity Phil hayati dunya Villa surah. So Allah will affirm and key firm the believers by the means of alcoholic habit which is the best of remembrance the best zyk ever, which is the word of the Oneness of Allah Phil hayati dunya, the last stage of life when the person is lying down on his or her deathbed. If this person used to be one of those who remembers Allah much will find it very easy to say. As head of Allah ilaha illallah wa

00:12:37--> 00:13:01

shadow anna Muhammad Rasul Allah will fill Ashura and the first stage of the hereafter in the grave, while answering the questions of the angels in the grave. Again, he will receive the affirmation and the help of Allah Almighty to answer the questions. Because this person was among those who has grown Allah kathira. they remember ALLAH, much of remembrance,

00:13:03--> 00:13:57

the root word and the virtues of constantly infrequently, remembering the Almighty Allah glorifying him praising him, magnifying His name is enormous and beyond count. So we need days and nights years to discuss that. But in brief, one beautiful Hadith, Allah Almighty Himself says how much he loves to be remembered by you. He said, I am with myself and whenever he remembers Me, for in the Koran if enough see the cartoon enough. See, if you remember Allah within yourself, like you've been sitting after the federal prayer, you seen Subhan Allah who you're saying the of God and Allah is still far, Allah the Almighty is actually admiring you this time.

00:13:58--> 00:14:39

And if you remember him in public, in a gathering and before people so Allah Almighty makes mention of you any gather in a gathering of Allah, Allah, Allah, of the angels, that come to who female in higher minimum, so we have a gathering or a halka here in the masjid or at somebody's home, talking about Allah. In return, another Almighty above the seven heavens has a gathering of the angels, where he is proud of you. He is talking about you. You are talking about him on Earth. And you're mentioning his name, your glorifying his praise, and his crazy new above the seven heavens in front of the noble Angels.

00:14:40--> 00:14:59

In brief brothers and sisters, the matter of remembering Allah and celebrating his praise is a matter of life or death. Abu Musab al Asha hurry narrated. So the messenger of Allah peace be upon him said method will let em call Rob who will let Eliezer call robber who can Nathaniel hi you and may it

00:15:00--> 00:15:48

A person who celebrates the praise of Allah and he remembers his Lord much is a living person with a living heart. A person who does not remember ALLAH, he does not glorify His praise, he does not praise Allah. He is walking dead, even though he's alive, but in reality, he is dead. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a sound, Hadith, you people, shall I not inform you about the best of all of your deeds, the purest and which will be accepted most will raise you into the highest ranks in paradise, it is even superior to give an immaturity gold and silver, it is even better and superior to fighting on a battlefield, and even die in as martyrs. What is better than

00:15:48--> 00:16:39

the shahada, and martyrdom, he said, The Corolla, the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala. This is something which we all can afford, but who is rightly guided to this ultimate success, to keep themselves busy with the remembrance of Allah. We know that a lot of people are addicted to smoking, to drugs, to watch in movies, to play in soccer, to watch in games, but who is actually in a mood of being addicted to the remembrance of Allah, as long as he's sitting or walking or driving, he is constantly making Istighfar seeking the help of Allah. So if he lives a long life, while doing this kind of there is the best of the best as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam assayed, you know,

00:16:39--> 00:17:22

in a beautiful example, once the Prophet sallallahu sallam was sitting in the machine, and there was a little demonstration, what happened is the poor companions in Medina, came to the Prophet peace be upon him, and they have a mid complain, and they weren't complaining, the dirt companions were not giving them out of their wealth, and they will not support them financially. No, none of that. It wasn't their concern whatsoever. Rather, they were complaining, they said, Oh prophet of Allah, they have to do Sorry, Bill Oduor. What does it mean? The Messenger of Allah peace be upon him said what do you guys mean? And what do you think So what made you think that the entered the soul he refers

00:17:22--> 00:17:41

to the rich people, they have harvested all their word, what makes you think so? They said, Oh prophet of Allah, they pray as we pray. So now the full companions are complaining to the Messenger of Allah, the direct companions, you know, they have a greater reward than them.

00:17:42--> 00:17:43


00:17:44--> 00:17:47

say they pray as we do, the fast as we do,

00:17:48--> 00:18:08

and they perform Hajj and we do, but they have wealth to give any charity to earn good deeds as a result of that, and we don't, so the beat up the beat us in this regard. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Well, shall I not share with you something that if you do

00:18:09--> 00:18:42

a drug to Mensa? kakum Well, I'm you recall, I had remembered you come. If I tell you something to do, and you do it, you will beat all of them and no one can catch up with you. Catching up, and beat and others in good deeds. Not in a physical fight. Not in wealth, my Indonesia. This is certainly a prophet of Allah tell us, how can we do better than them? He said, Well, you guys don't have money out is something that if you do, it is better than given in a charity. And he can never beat you in this regard.

00:18:44--> 00:19:34

What to do? He says, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, simply after you finish every prayer, raise Allah as follows 33 times by glorifying Allah. Likewise, by praising Allah, and likewise, by saying Allahu Akbar, magnifying the name of Allah Almighty, didn't seal up and round of the 100 by saying La ilaha illa Allah who had a hula Sharika as you all know that this is what we call it, the seal of the prayer. So, he companions the poor companion started doing so. And a while later they came back to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam complaining Why, what is wrong? They said, our rich companions have heard about the advice that you give us and day two started doing the same. Look at the kind of

00:19:34--> 00:19:52

competition brothers and sisters. We need to make the best use out of every breath, not just a minute, or an hour or a day. May the Almighty Allah make us among other Korean Allah Catherine with Akira, and the next time AsSalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
