to that man who praise be to Allah, To Him belongs all praise. We praise Him we seek His guidance, his help and his forgiveness. We seek refuge and protection of Allah from our bad deeds as we seek his refuge and protection from the bad insiders. Know then one who is guided by Allah, they are truly guided, and one who is left to go astray will not find a guide or a protector or a helper after that. I bear witness that there is no god but the one true God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them. He has no partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him is his slave and messenger.

first Sire, Allah soon,
even in that little letter,
FAFSA shows you that is not far away.
When we talk about signs before the day of judgment and the Day of Judgment, it seems all this is going to happen that's going to happen this is going to happen. Reality is death for us is the Day of Judgment.
There's nothing more we can do. Barsa is a state in a different realm. It's not in this realm. It's a different state. And as some evidences show you from the Quran and Sunnah is like the person waking up from sleep, and it's your little haoma is your real karma. So really, first of all your hola
hola como para su who were a Zulu almost minion where Sakura Dona Illa Allah Milla YB was shahada, and soon you will be brought in front of it Ali Mila baby was shahada Fontvieille in front of the one who has complete knowledge of that which is open and that which is hidden. In other words, there's no way you can go to hide through any deeds, they're all being observed. And Allah knows better than you do. Even the inner secrets of your hearts are limited they will show that for you not be Oh can be mad quantum.my Lord, and He will inform you of what you then use to do with your lives. Inform You mean hisab judge you well before I carry on, it's already full. So especially in
this soul brothers, if you all those who are able to stand up look to either side look ahead squeezed ahead, make room for our brothers from behind, as we know majority the schools are all here as well.
Baraka Lo Fi comm
Allah have mercy on you and bless you.
Allah Swatara sua says so this is like be busy look because it's around the corner. Do as much as you can. We're sorry. Oh Allah Hmong, Philippine Mirabai Cambodia
Now and rush all of you to the forgiveness of your Lord and a paradise and a garden. Wasabi Kula mouths you know Tim Murghab become what? What Jana, and compete with one another to the forgiveness of your Lord and a garden. All that
is there and the reality is these Amel is what's the real currency? Isn't it brothers sisters on your little Fiamma? What's in here, and what we did with our lives is what's gonna matter.
The dunya and all its material things
is what we do with them.
They're not going to be there to count for anything. The person as I said before, were to own the whole of the earth and all that it contains of its treasures, and nobody's ever heard that.
But if they were in theory to have that and on it, and on the Day of Judgment, presented to Allah, in compensation to cancel one sin will be accepted.
It won't even be able to cancel one sin because it has no value on Yom Okayama on the Day of Judgment, so it's good deeds, really, and it's rushed, and striving for goodness why?
America Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam fie Hadith Allah de Rosa who Tirmidhi wa call Hadith hacernos Saheeh in a hadith in Imam Tirmidhi reports the politics I sort of said lotta Zulu Kodama, Abilene, yo melta, Yama, Hatha use L. and N Omri, he K for F Now, who FEMA F now who, what am l v. FEMA file fe, WA and
what unmannerly he, meaning me named access-a, where FEMA and Fatah were unjust, me he FEMA, Abdullah, who
the feet have mentioned this to you before as well of the slave on the Day of Judgment will not move anywhere, scan for judgment until he or she is asked about their life and what they spent doing.
And they are asked about the knowledge that ALLAH blessed us with rotaries out of ignorance, all kinds of knowledge it covers, what did he or she do with that knowledge?
And thirdly, they'll be asked about their wealth, where they got it from halal or haram. And what they spent it on.
And finally, about the body, that gypsum which is an Amana we forget this often to look after the body physically in what we feed it and what we do with it.
The body how they wore it out doing what
and prophesy Salam said it Hadith which is reported in Bukhari Muslim
saying about deeds. So these are things that are being asked about on the Day of Judgment what we did what we did with what Allah blessed us with, yeah, and when death comes, as I mentioned, this before, yes, bow will make the eater Salah sang
for ya, Gio is Nan or Yamakawa hit yet bow yet bow who?
Allahu Allahu Emmylou. For Yahtzee Oh, man, who were Allah who are Yeah, but Armello three things follow the dead person follow me is that's what's left behind. There are three things, not literally the people die the wealth behind the funeral bear. But as was also let down, but the family certainly follow up. And the riches or any wealth is there as well. Meaning it's there in the dunya
after the burial of us, two of those things are sort of free, go back to carry on. The wealth is gone. You are nothing. No Pharaoh in the pyramids and in the treasures that they're buried with them ever took it with them. They thought they were going to but grave diggers came
less from the Egyptians more from the west. And by some means money is to take it all and bring it to museums here in the West. Well, that's another story.
The fact is, the Egyptians and others didn't benefit either actually who were alive. That's the trick of the trade as they say, but certainly the pharaohs the dead people didn't benefit from it didn't that so you can bury mountains of gold. You can bring policies and all sorts what you want. It will not benefit well it no benefit. The grave diggers will benefit from it.
and family, family moves on. family moves on in the end crying How long can you cry for? How long will you remember and you remember is love to sleep work, eat your children after grow up and give it another generation or two and you're just a name that's been carved on the gravestone are we not brothers sisters?
That's the reality. Don't chase after dunya that sits reality but what lay what stays with you is deeds.
While is early colossal, allah sallallahu alayhi salam fee Hadith Allah de are all roja and in the Abbas Radi Allahu Anhu ma of Raja whole Hmong very well by yaki. Well Hakeem wa who are Hadith and Huson, accepted good Hadith, in which the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam says, If tannin hum son Abrahamson, so famous Hadith many of you will know it.
Shabaab aka probably the heroic Saharsa, Sahar taka, gobbler sarcomeric Vinayaka Arbella, folkloric for Wafaa waka popular sugar leak, we're HYAH take a call biller Milotic. Take advantage.
Take benefit opportunity take from five things before the other five come to do what? linked with what I've been saying to do good deeds, why you've got opportunity. Take from the five before the five first one, you're young edge before you become old.
And it's pretty obvious. I can't do the things I used to do at 25 and 30. Yeah, and when you get older and older, your knees are creaking. He's got this back pain now. Now he has to walk with a stick. Yeah.
So this is turning to Allah, complete contrast to what's being shoved down our throats in the material world that we live in. In fact, the whole idea of teenager who can mess around and just waste their life leave him alone. He's only a teenager is a concept. That's a recent concept in the West, just to waste people's lives away, and they get misguided in the teenage years more than any of the years will be tied to you who are teenagers. Now is the time to link with Allah. Don't think, don't think number one but you grow old first. This is the same before you get old. Take advantage of your youth who said you're going to get old.
Take advantage, the one you get told, definitely you're not going to be able to do the things that you could when you were young.
And this is also a warning in a sense of when he's old and decrepit. Nobody in the family wants to know him. Now he comes to the mosque. That's not to stop the elderly from coming to the mosque. That's not the message. To say lightly like Allah before we actually die and turn to Allah. Allah give us forgiveness and Toba. Accept Altova. But this hadith is telling you that you can do a lot more of God. And it's pretty obvious when you're young, when you're young. So be careful how you spend your youth because you're going to be asked about it. Yes. When you had all the energy and your mind was ticking, right. Yeah, an opportunity. And you were too busy and young age. But that's
applicable in this world for everybody. But especially at young age, beware of distractions. Beware as a school.
I was gonna say kids, but they don't like being called Kids, really. They're there when they're in the Upper School, especially beware of not only distractions, especially what we have nowadays, and I mentioned that in a minute, but especially your peers, who you spend your time with one of the biggest worries parents have and we love you. Nobody can love you more than your parents, youngsters. The worry they have is what friends you're going to make. And you're thinking once you made them as I said in school, last Juma as well. Be wary of the friends that you make. Because once you made them, actually, whoever advises you, I think you need to change your friends. It is very
likely you're going to reject the advice and say, well, he's my man. I'm not going to do that. I've hardly seen anybody say rang the chain, my friend because somebody gave me advice. So beware who you choose in the first place. That's what I say to you. How you spend your youth is going to be very dependent on who you're happy with and who you're going around with.
That's why the Prophet saw someone said,
Allah, Dini, Holly, a person is on the religion, or way of life.
have their best mate, best friend. Fall young guru I had to come Man U haul. So let each one of you be very careful of who you choose as your best mate.
If you want you
if you want your usefulness to be used in doing good works, then you must connect with God must connect with Allah Swatara now, yeah, you think that you'll connect when you're elderly, there is no guarantee in that meaning also means before you become old, because you may never connect even when you get old. How many people do I see in our society, in my profession, especially who are wasting away? Not in just old people's homes and nursing home but then on their own homes. They never even mentioned God.
They'll read the newspaper day and night and watch the telly to keep them occupied.
No mention of God brothers sisters.
What a sad state of affairs that is. You feel sorry for them. Beware that we don't become like that. So you have to start with your use if you want to make sure that you still with it when you get old
was Sahar taka Arbella. succumbing and take advantage of your good health before you become ill.
In Seha, while you've got good health and we know what happens either acute illness Yeah. As our women say for a man that the man's cold with knocks us out for six, four days, and they're still running around. It doesn't take much for a virus to knock us out. We can barely get a word on praying and we might do any more good works with that right? So take advantage of why you got health and health is such a bounty from Allah subhanho wa Taala we are not appreciating
you know what? The human being is so ungrateful. When we get ill we start complaining to Allah. The few days that we got the illness we forget about the years and years and day after day, week after week, month after month of health that he gave us and protected us. How ungrateful How ungrateful are we deserved even a one day of life? What gives me the right I have no right to exist Allah's bounty and mercy that he gave me life that He gives me Seha Yeah, so make take advantage of being healthy
because we know what sickness does not only acute but chronic. Yeah, got down this tablet that tablet having this operation you're too busy other looking after you You're doing very little in good works.
So what about when the prophets Allah salon said in authentic hadith? He said Salah
is our Merida either married or lucked out Sapphira cootie Bella who Maracana yeah Malou wha hoo.
Mochi man. So he
is a beautiful hadith of Bushrod good news.
So what about that prophesy, Salam said, when a person becomes ill, or goes on a journey, Allah what's written down for them of good deeds still are written?
Yeah, as though they were doing them. Yeah. When they were not travelers, or when they were healthy.
So when you become ill, or a journey, you can't do the things that you're doing when you're at home illness, but Allah right sit down with himself as though you're still doing them. But there's no contradiction here. Because some might think, well, you're getting reward anyway. Because you do know. You do in a sense as well, from a thong touching a believer gives us mcfadzean. That's the mercy and forgiveness of Allah Swatara brothers and sisters, but you have to be doing them when you were healthy in the first place to get a reward when you were when you fall sick. If you're not doing anything, when you are healthy, you're not gonna get much when you're sick.
So there's no contradiction. It's an encouragement to be doing it still, isn't it?
Lucky now Cabela factory
work in Africa, Ebola fuckery. And from your richness before you become poor. Yeah, and who knows what's around the corner? In other words, when Allah has given you of the bounty and Allah gives bounty at different times to different people, and it can change so before you become poor, yeah, make use of the wealth Allah gives you in good causes in good building those good deeds, translating the money.
Rather than using our greed and avarice, I'm filling my stomach only.
Even though to put clothes on
myself and to freed myself from it to thank Allah. Yeah. Is part of the badass brothers and sisters. That's how this deen is not saying go around in rags live in a cave. Yeah, and just give all your money away. Islam doesn't teach that.
But it certainly teaches against being spendthrift and greedy and full of avarice and not helping others. So before you become poor take opportunity from what Allah has given you of wealth. Yeah.
Giving to others helping others starting right was somebody who knows from your family. A call look only ha That was tough for hula hula hula Rahim.
Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala extrafill mbi. Well, mostly what Allah Allah He was such a big man in Ahmedabad, your Liqua.
Each of these five things are prophesized. I mentioned each one's a chapter actually. Each one can be hooked, but I'm summarizing for you. There's so much to think about and reflect on it. The next one, that prophesized that was very interesting. He said, Well, Farah Vaca, Avila Schulich and your spare or free time before you become busy.
Before you become busy, so there's a reality of being busy and as a figment of imagination or deception of being busy, there are two different things. There's a real thing, we all get busy, either at work, or looking after others yet, it may be that some family members ill you're not ill, but you get your busy through that. Even though you're doing good in that sense, but there's things that you can do yet, in helping in the community in going out doing good works. Yeah.
All of it is outward, helping others. That's what good works is about. So when you become busy with things, including work, whatever can keep you busy.
prophesize them take advantage of when you've got time on your hands, because he doesn't stay like that doesn't we know from life? That it's not a constant like that. So there's a reality of getting busy as well. Yeah, which will keep you occupied maybe something with duniya it will keep you occupied with Yeah. Whereas when you've got time, part of it is actually making time. Then there's the other side of it, which is more dangerous, actually, that people are deceived by shaitan to think that they're actually busy, busy, busy, busy, busy, and I came across them all my life.
They're too busy for Salah, the Quran to learn about the deen? Yeah, I'll do it in two or three years, and I'm less busy and you've made them two or three years later, and they were busier than they were before you meet them seven or eight years after that. They don't even recognize who you are.
Oh, yes, you're that one.
Because Donia swallows people up as well as as I'm talking about ourselves, this deceptions of dunya. That's why.
So busyness can be a deception, deceptive, but you're not actually busy. But she does deceived you into thinking that you're busy and you haven't got time to anything else. Especially in the society we live in today. That's why Allah Swatara says, your or your hand. So in our world Allah He had for all human beings surely the Promise of Allah is true.
For Allah war runner qumola higher to dunya Well, I will run I can build healing or who do not let the life of this world deceive you.
keep you busy, as though there's no hereafter so you know, you're not making any of these good works for the hereafter to come to please Allah is too busy.
Do not be deceived by dunya nice enjoyment says though you're living as though you're gonna be here forever. And do not let that deceive or deceive you about Allah which is even more dangerous. The deceiver after the next verse mentions a nice shade on Komodo by Turkey who are though surely shaped on in other words, that's the deceiver, deceiving about Allah. Look, you're suffering all these How can God do this? That's it, you're finished. Or he cancels 99% of the fares Allah has given you and he puts you in a little trial. Shaytan wants you to focus on that negative constantly, as he has done too many atheists. And this is a world of atheism, isn't it? We're surrounded by this fitna.
This real fitna, beware beware of shaitan and his deception, or dunya enamel higher to duniya enamel higher
Don't matter who
the life of this world is only enjoyment of deception. And this is the age of the biggest age of deception through distraction.
So tell you that Romans built all these coliseums and made all these games available to keep people occupied. So they think about the injustice that was going on. We've got biggest restrictions, and that is held by everybody in the hand, isn't it? distractions, distractions to do with duniya
distract someone is a main
is to divert somebody's attention on what they need to and want to focus on and to keep them preoccupied on that which they shouldn't be focused on focusing on. That's distraction. What are the meanings of distraction? You know, a second meaning of distraction is
to go looky
agitated anxiety, because you're always in these distractions. People don't find peace, peace in the heart and soul, the psychiatrists and psychologists that needed to deal with all these people who are spending their life in distraction in distraction. And the biggest distraction is this that we carry around with us, although there's good in it. But think about even actually, the web.
It's interesting name, isn't it? What's the web useful by the spider?
I think you know the answer to that. So where the fly in the web
net, internet was a net useful
to catch? Yeah.
And then they say, I'm surfing the net. And as I said before, who surfing it a surfing is interesting, because when you're surfing is the wave that's doing all the things, you're actually just at the mercy of the wave.
So you're not actually doing it. Google and YouTube are running your show, and life is not right.
Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of good there as well. But beware, because majority of people are actually distracted on wasting time. And they think they're busy. That's the deception. They're busy, busy with work. But if they took a stock of themselves, at the end of the day, every day before they went to bed of how many hours they had, and what they did with it, used to be watching the telly before, but now, nobody even notices the hours that go by they call it scrolling.
This is in Arabic is called Low, passing distractions, amusements being distracted. Yeah, the age of amusement. It's all about laugh and a joke and how much entertainment I can get. That's why
you had videos before on YouTube or a lecture or something? It could be 45 minutes an hour long, then they said no, no, you need to reduce it because nobody's got any attention span anymore. They want to enjoy something and leave it so it has to be 20 minutes. All right. Then they said no, no, it has to be 10 minutes so tick tock came along the signal has to be three minutes then they said no, even three minutes too long now, because they want to be distracted by something else so as to be 10 seconds. Now. What's the matter whether this is a sickness? If you deal with the Quran, and where are we going like that? We will not go anywhere because Quran and the message of Allah
requires reflection to double and de facto that he's not done hastily, over the millennia hook buzzer too long.
I'm not having to go there, right, actually, they're too long.
That's a different issue.
Because people are going to rush off and go elsewhere. But there's others. There's others. A handler doesn't happen here. But I've seen it in many places, and the youth are in the back. They're on their phones while the khateeb is talking hamdulillah it just didn't happen in the schools I go to so I'm really proud of the youth in the schools I go to, but it's very prevalent. Adults are doing it as well. So may Allah save us from that kind of distraction of deception. And, and keep in touch with reality, the reality is God and where we've come from where we're going dear brothers and sisters, every Salah is to remind you of that reality when you're going to Jude is it not
every salah but if you don't even do the salah
how's it going to be reminded? Salah is not for all people. Yeah, Salah is not for people with sticks who got bad back and then now can't do anything else Salah is for all of us. It's especially for the young and and to carry on to make it part of your life.
I haven't got time for the last one but that will be a football on its own. Take advantage of life before death comes before I finished last week. About the two things I've just mentioned before the prophesy Salam said the Hadith
which is reported by Buhari
that people are duped by to bounties net Nutan Malibu known fee Hema cathedral minuteness two things people are duped by most people are duped by meaning they don't take advantage of them. They just do by them this waste. What are there are Sahar well Farrar the prophesy Salam said good health and spare time. Don't be duped by them. Thank Allah by doing good works. Yeah before the other comes May Allah guide us. Keep us on Stroud, Thomas takim melasma to fill our hearts with His light and guidance.
