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

joining you again.

00:00:02--> 00:00:17

And just hours ago, we hear the news of the death of our friend, our teacher, our chef Mohammed, a Sharif Rahima hula hoop.

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

First and foremost, let me say that I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept

00:00:34--> 00:01:00

to your especially for you and I in the English speaking world, male lions, so which will accept it from him? And may Allah subhanho wa Taala honor Him amongst the righteous of His servants on the day of judgment and in Jana Tilford Osella Allah Allahu Amin, as for his young family and his children may Allah subhanho wa Taala give them strength and patience. through this difficult time.

00:01:01--> 00:01:33

I met chef Mohammed Sharif or him hula for the last time, many months ago he was in transit. And believe it or not, I just happen to be at the airport picking someone up and I see this brother walking and he's pushing a cart with luggage and his family and his wife and children are with him. And they see him from a distance and I go to him and I say Salaam Alaikum we embraced we talked for a bit

00:01:34--> 00:01:48

and I said whether When will I see you again? He says in in sha Allah soon and that was the last time we saw each other not realizing not even thinking along those lines you just hope to see each other again and life continues

00:01:50--> 00:01:50

the last?

00:04:11--> 00:04:41

years ago, wanting to see how he could bring Dawa on social media when we heard Facebook 20 years ago, or 15 years ago, we were like a stuff that Hola. But now you can actually use it for your benefit. And here we are all from a che with all the teachers, students, people like you and I we're learning and we're benefiting. We're able to connect to knowledge and speakers from across the globe through this avenue.

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

So I thank Allah

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

and I thank Sheikh Muhammad Sharif. And I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala fills his scales of good deeds, and make that part of his scale outweigh any of the shortcomings and mistakes of his life.

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

that we are all a test certification to the efforts of this men. And we pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala reunites us in genital for docile Allah with him and amongst the righteous Allahumma Amin

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

are you, Bob, where do we go from here?

00:05:18--> 00:05:35

I don't know if some of you have noticed, maybe in the last few weeks, maybe for some of us in the last few years, have you noticed that the news of the passing of someone close to you,

00:05:36--> 00:06:00

or someone within your circle, it's been sudden and tragic and that news is happening more and more and more. Have you noticed this? And our Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam actually asked Allah. To protect him he sought refuge in Allah from mo to ill Fejn

00:06:02--> 00:06:03

sudden death,

00:06:05--> 00:06:17

he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala and sought refuge in Allah from sudden death. And it's been happening more and more common, and more and more often. The question is,

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

why?

00:06:20--> 00:06:27

Why did Allah put those reminders in front of you? And me?

00:06:29--> 00:06:38

Why are we still alive? Listening and seeing those reminders? What is it supposed to mean for you and I?

00:06:39--> 00:07:09

So whether it be Sheikh Mohammed machete for him, Allah, or any one of our beloved friends and family, there's a couple of things that you have to internalize it you have to think about when the reminder of death is knocking your front door every single week or day or year or month. It's knocking your door reminding you I'm here, number one. Allah tells us in the Quran, a NEMA Kuhn

00:07:10--> 00:07:49

you direct Komori remote, wherever you are, death is going to creep and find you. It's going to crawl behind you. You Derek from Dara K means that it's gradually and slowly going to find its way and creep up to you when you least expect it. This is something that Allah reminds us in the Quran. So take the reminder that no matter what we do, no matter what mood we're in, no matter where we are, death is inevitable and it will find us you know, that's understood, but it's a whole nother story when the reality of death strikes you when you least expect it.

00:07:51--> 00:08:07

When you least expect it know with health issues, you're not at the wrong place at the wrong time. You're just going about your daily routine, And subhanAllah it was the time that Allah subhanaw taala wrote for you may Allah azza wa jal give us strength. Here is number two.

00:08:09--> 00:08:15

These reminders of death is actually a part of our iman.

00:08:16--> 00:08:35

In Islam. We are constantly told in the Quran and Sunnah to think about death. As a matter of fact, listen to this area. There are similar verses in surah in the Quran, in other suitors listen to her. Allah says in Surah Yunus or LEA uns

00:08:36--> 00:08:56

In Kuntum fish DocumentDB Fela, arugula Xena taboo Dunum, in dunya Allah, wala kin, our Buddha Allah, Allah yet our Falcom listening to it, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam is told by Allah both tell

00:09:03--> 00:09:41

the people, all of mankind. So there is talking to us as well. If you still have a doubt whether Islam is the true and final religion, that Allah is the One and Only deity worthy of worship, if you still have these kinds of questions and doubts in you, the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam is saying to everyone, I don't worship the deities you worship. Rather I worship Allah. Listen to how he describes Allah. He says, I worship Allah. Allah, the toe of crumb that causes you to die.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

That's the thing, that the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam is commanded to say to people who are still wishy washy or not sure which path to be on. Remember that Allah is the one that causes you

00:10:00--> 00:10:22

to die, and you have these reminders all throughout the horror end, the one that will cause you to die, every soul shall taste death, death is inevitable, we have endless amounts of a hadith. So there is one more lesson behind these reminders that I will conclude within the second part of the whole. Brothers and sisters.

00:10:25--> 00:10:31

We don't know if this is the last chamara, just let that sink in for a minute.

00:10:33--> 00:10:37

I don't know if what I'm saying to you is my last words to us. I'll tell you.

00:10:38--> 00:11:25

You don't know that what you're listening to on what brought you here today. Whether it be horsepower to meet somebody or to whatever your intention was mature here. And you're listening to this in 2022 in this day and age, and that perhaps whatever you listen to and you interact with today, this is your last Jumar on this planet. I don't know how else to further explain what that should mean to all of us. But we should all take a quick moment. Pray and ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to bless our time and bless our efforts that whatever it is that we're doing, that we do more of that that is righteous, that is acceptable to Him, and any of our weaknesses, our mistakes, our

00:11:25--> 00:11:41

problems, our shortcomings, beg Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive you and forgive me and may Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our daughters of hula Mantis Marilyn was tougher. Hola Hola. Welcome Marissa it didn't mean I'm in Cali them stuff in the whole photo right?

00:11:49--> 00:12:09

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam o Allah rasool Allah Allah He offered a southern woman who Allah buried. Here is the third lesson that at least I've been thinking about the more and more news of the passing of someone is being reminded to me. I've started thinking about the death of Mr. Malhotra or the Allahu, and

00:12:11--> 00:12:14

we all know he died in Medina.

00:12:15--> 00:12:21

And he was assassinated. And it was salatu Fajr. And he was in sujood.

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

The person responsible for his death.

00:12:25--> 00:12:57

When he took the life of armor or the Allah one didn't happen immediately. He suffered the wounds as a result, and he had to cut his Salah Roman couldn't continue his prayer. And the moment that you know he kind of held himself together, he had a bit of consciousness left. The first thing on his mind was to tell the companion right behind him lead the fudges prayer and complete it.

00:12:58--> 00:13:00

That's the first thing on his mind.

00:13:01--> 00:13:05

And so one of the companions went ahead, read sootel CalHFA

00:13:06--> 00:13:15

and finished the Salah, told fetcher. Then time progressed. I just remember was sitting in front of his son, our beloved had been remodeled the Allah one.

00:13:16--> 00:14:09

He passed out for some time until sunrise. And when he regained consciousness, the first thing on his mind is he recites a verse of the Quran. What can immortal law he called the ROM Makhura as the first area that it was always the Command of Allah which is what was His will and His putter upon me and upon everything else, he reminded himself of an area of the Quran. Then he started to ask about this person and I showed the alo asking her permission. If he could have the spot closest to her father, Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah, and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's seeking permission, because he's thinking about what position physically he wants to be, while preparing

00:14:09--> 00:14:53

himself to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala these are the things on his mind. And he's now buried next to the man he tried to assassinate Allah gave him the most honorable burial site on this planet. This was the remote of the Allah one. And I started thinking about and saying to myself, you don't know what your tomorrow will be. So all of us here who have relationship problems, you'll have issues that are lingering on between friends and families. You don't have time for these things to linger on. You don't have time. Time is not on your side or mine. So you have to come to the realization if this is your last Friday.

00:14:54--> 00:14:57

We don't even know if we will see salata Lhasa.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Think about it.

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

whatever time you prayed Fudger if you prayed it on time Alhamdulillah but if you didn't, is that the last Fudger you're gonna give Allah? Think about these things, their relationships, do what you can Allah is not asking you and I to perform miracles. Whatever is beyond your control is beyond your control, cleanse here, purify your actions, and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to increase us all in righteous deeds increase us in the recitation of the Quran in our prayers in our intentions may Allah azza wa jal increase us in charity in a bad Allahumma I mean, we conclude and send peace and blessings to our soul Salawat to Robbie wa sallam who Allah can Amana subhanho wa Taala Phaeton xili
