It is another type of love, but it is not a love or a type of love that is encouraged, but rather it is a type which has been discouraged. It is not praiseworthy. On the other hand, it is blameworthy and that is the love for this materialistic worldly life a lot.

00:01:49--> 00:02:23

Hi, this is in Abu Dhabi. Siobhan are the Allahu anhu states that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, the narration goes along the lines of these words that nations will gather. nations will gather just as how they will gather and they will start inviting one another just as how people invite one another to partake of a meal, just as how they invite one another to partake of a meal. nations will call out and invite people they will call out to one another.

00:02:25--> 00:03:12

And why will they call out to one another they will call out to attack the Muslim ummah. Allahu Akbar. And at that time, somebody from the gathering asked Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yasser Allah, will the Muslim Ummah be few in number at that time Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he stated that Nay, the Muslim Ummah will be like the froth of the sea, they will be so numerous in number, they will be like the froth of the sea. But Allah subhanho wa Taala would have taken the fear of the Muslims away from the enemy, the enemy will no longer fear the Muslims and also one will be cast in the hearts of the Muslims. The Sahaba revoir leida Allah Allah Himeji

00:03:12--> 00:04:01

Marine, they asked Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yasuda la what is one? What is Allah him Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then clarified that we're hand his love for this materialistic worldly life and also the fear of facing death. Allahu Akbar, we would start to love this dunya and we would fail we would fear to face Malakal mouth. Look at this beautiful piece of poetry that was articulated by our beloved Imam Shafi Rahim Allah. He says in LA LA he he by then fatahna la la he Eva fatahna for La Paz dounia waha full faith Anna. Now the roofie her family moved and they said the hygiene was gonna

Be like a person walking down a thorny path, taking precaution at every corner and at every turn because there are thorns all over the place. latha Tirana saphira

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

Do not look down upon any deed whether it be a good deed or a bad deed for England g Ballymena Alfa saw because indeed mountains are made up of tiny little pebbles coming back to the main point.

00:05:14--> 00:06:06

tala cadonia, waffle fatahna those intelligence slaves of Allah, they would have abandoned this worldly life. And also, they are cautious of the fitna of this worldly life, the trials and calamities of this worldly life. Now the roofie they had a look at this worldly life, fella Alamo and Lisa to the hygiene wattana and then when they realize that this worldly life is not a permanent place for those who are truly alive jallianwala luigia they made it a transitory station that they are crossing, they made it a transitory stage, what the hell do soil health Amalfi has to fula Allahu Akbar, and they took righteous actions as a mode of conveyance to cross this temporary stage

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

on to the permanent and eternal Hara.

00:06:11--> 00:06:56

So the cure my dear respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam, the cure for curing hearts that have been afflicted with love for this dunya or those hearts that have been immersed in the love for this dunya is none other than is nothing other than the remembrance of death. For the mo we remember death, as it is in accordance to the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hadith is in theory above the Allahu anhu. He states that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, at through the karate mela that make excessive remembrance of the destroyer of pleasures make excessive remembrance of the Terminator of pleasures. For the more we remember death,

00:06:56--> 00:07:43

the more we make excessive remembrance of death. That remembrance will shatter the fake ways of pleasure that this dounia adorns herself with the more we remember death, the more we remember our era and the mode the love for this temporary life will start to decrease in our hearts, because the life of this dunya is very, very short of a cupboard. It is extremely short. acidophilus oily, a pass play Desa says they say that the life of this dunya is like a dream. It is like a dream. When a person who is sleeping The minute he wakes up what does he think of that dream that he witnessed? Nothing is just a mere dream. Likewise, when molecule mouth comes and stands in front of us, when we

00:07:43--> 00:08:32

taste death, this worldly life will be nothing other than a dream. We would think at that time. Oh, what a loss. I should have used that short life that Allah subhanahu wa taala blessed me with to secure beautiful investments that would secure a good life for me in the AF era. Let me give you a small calculation, a calculation that would make you realize how few times this worldly life is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that the life span of my mama, my own ma my nation is nothing other than between 60 and 70 years, our lifespan is between 60 and 70 years, if someone were especially in our times, if someone were to live past 70, it's actually

00:08:32--> 00:08:48

considered a miracle these days. So the lifespan of this oma is between 60 and 70. Let's take an average individual who if he if Allah if Allah the Almighty has blessed him with a lifespan of 60 years, 60 years.

00:08:49--> 00:09:38

How long do you think he spends in sleep? An average adult, he spends about eight hours every day eight as the same six as perhaps at night. And if he were to take a siesta or an afternoon nap all of it included eight hours per day. So eight hours out of 24 hours is one third. So out of 60. If we were to minus one third, that means 20 years of our lives we spent sleeping 20 years of our lives. How many years have you got remaining 40 years out of these 40 years, let's minus the age that we have not attained puberty and because of course, an individual is only after he has attained puberty that he is held accountable for his deeds. So let's take it at an average even though these days

00:09:38--> 00:09:52

people attained age at a young age. Let's take it at 15 years. So minus 15. From that 40 you are left with how much 2525 years from those 25 years. Let's say

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

the time we spend eating and drinking breakfast, lunch dinner every single day. We can't live without food. So

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

Let's minus the time we spent, we spent on food on eating consuming food. Let's keep it at five years out of 25, five years, minus five, we're left with 20 years. Now out of these 20 years, every day, an average adult, how many hours does he spend at work? Let's keep it at an average for about eight hours. Even though there are workaholics who spend much more time at work. Let's keep it at eight hours. Okay, eight hours and at a random let's minus 10 years from that 20 years that we have, how many years are we left with? 10 years now from these 10 years, we need time to spend with family recreational activities, perhaps a few trips, visiting people going out spending time with friends,

00:10:44--> 00:10:58

oh, the time on social networks, online, all of these things, minus everything. Let's keep it at five years for all of that spending time with the family and etc. How many years are we left with five years?

00:10:59--> 00:11:20

And even that five years might go away? We might spend it in something. But I have a question. Can we not even at least devote that five years for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala? You know, you bad after all? That is if we live for 60 years? What guarantee or can any one of us guarantee?

00:11:21--> 00:12:12

Can I guarantee that I live until 60 at the ripe age of 60 or 70 Can you guarantee none of us? Perhaps before we reach home, we don't know monocle mouth may be at the doorstep waiting to welcome us. But at an average of 60 years old we have got left behind is five years. So my dear respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam, let us make the best use of the time that we have before it slips away from within our fingers that spend as much as time possible, securing good deeds for the fairer let us purge this love this evil love that we have for this materialistic dounia from our hearts because many of us sadly, including myself, we hanker from morning to evening running behind

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

this dernier. We Hank running behind this dunya, amassing millions building houses buying cars, none of which is haram. But we need to get our priorities straight, are we going to live forever and ever in this dunya you may have the most expensive motor vehicle, you may own a huge mansion looking over a river or a mountain or whatever. But then, in a short span of time melaku mouth is going to come visit you and you are going to be carried to your grave without your motor vehicle without your mansions without all of your wealth, nothing you can't take anything. And at times, even the shroud that will be put on you may be may be purchased from someone else's money unless of course you've

00:12:57--> 00:13:42

already brought the Botha sharp shroud and kept it ready for yourself. You may adorn yourself with designer brands but on that day you will go with a plain white sheet of cloth Allahu Akbar. And when they place you in the cover nothing, not even your family, your children, your loved ones, your beloved wife, no one. Yeah, they will weep they will cry. But at the end of the day, they are going to leave you all alone in that pit to meet your faith. And what will be with you what will accompany you on that day, nothing other than your armored salejaw. So just as how our beloved Imam Shafi Rahim, Allah states in that poem I mentioned in the beginning, let us take or let us make righteous

00:13:42--> 00:14:28

actions as a mode of conveyance to cross over this transitory stage on to the eternal era, where we shall enjoy perpetual happiness, eternal happiness, we will never ever experience any hardship, any sorrow or any sadness. So let us make use of the time because time is valuable, it has make use of the time that Allah subhanahu Allah has blessed us with to secure the best of deeds so that we meet Allah subhanahu wa taala in a state where he will be pleased with us. May He the almighty forgive all of our sins, may he accept our good deeds, and maybe help us make the best out of this month of Ramadan. And may He unite us in the gardens of Jenna just as how he united is here this night. Well

00:14:28--> 00:14:32

after that, why and in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen jazak Allah hi malachite
