00:04:46--> 00:04:59

my brothers and sisters. Before I begin today's subject, I apologize if it's going to stir up some emotion. And it might remind you of a time in your life where you

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

Things were difficult May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us strength and patience, love them. I mean, I'd like to ask everyone to go back to a Janessa that you have attended, whether it be recently or many years ago.

00:05:17--> 00:05:34

And it's the kind of Jenna's where you attended that the deceased was someone close to you, very dear and beloved to you, like a family member, spouse, a parent, a child.

00:05:35--> 00:05:44

And on that day, you really experienced emotions from within you didn't know you had, it was that difficult.

00:05:45--> 00:05:52

And I want to share with you what really happens to the deceased

00:05:54--> 00:06:03

at the moment that someone passes away, our Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam described to us in many Hadith,

00:06:04--> 00:06:09

of some of the things that you and I are educated about when somebody passes away.

00:06:11--> 00:06:14

And the first thing that of course, happens as the soul is extracted.

00:06:16--> 00:06:17

And this soul goes on a journey.

00:06:19--> 00:06:36

And eventually, the soul descends to that deceased body. And our Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam described to us that they hear and they experienced the janazah prayer.

00:06:37--> 00:06:46

Now, keep in mind, this is the life of the butter stuff. This is the life of the grave. So it's a completely different realm. It's a completely different world.

00:06:48--> 00:07:06

And when you see that body, slowly, the coffin is slowly being lowered. And we do what we always do, you take some dirt and you throw it, the body, the soul experiences that the dirt is being thrown on them.

00:07:07--> 00:07:36

And they realize our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, describe to us how this experience happens. Nobody knows we don't have that knowledge. But we know that eventually, when the last person leaves the cemetery, after the procession is over, that the deceased also can hear the footsteps of the last person leaving.

00:07:37--> 00:07:42

It is at that point where the questioning begins.

00:07:44--> 00:07:54

And our Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam describe the three questions, perhaps the three most important questions we will ever be asked

00:07:55--> 00:07:58

in our existence, Who is your Lord?

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

What is your deen? What is your religion? Who was that prophet that was sent to you? Now, I'm going to pause here for a minute. Don't think that if we can answer these questions now that in sha Allah is going to be good, like, I'm good. I have that foundation. Some of our older men, this tell us that when the deceased responds to these questions, but they don't necessarily do it with their mouth, it comes from their heart. And it happens in a way, again, is this knowledge of the Unseen we don't know the details of how any of this works. But the point here is this. There are Muslims who have accepted Islam here. With their eyes, they see the beauty and they acknowledge the beauty.

00:08:51--> 00:08:59

There are Muslims who have accepted Islam hear, they hear about it, they listen, they learn.

00:09:00--> 00:09:13

There are some Muslims that Islam is only here. It's an intellectual thing. They can get into these deep philosophical debates about complex subjects in Islam.

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

But not everyone

00:09:17--> 00:09:23

will have Islam where it matters the most. Right here.

00:09:24--> 00:09:28

This is where you want it to be. How do you know you have Islam here?

00:09:30--> 00:09:47

You look and live like a Muslim not only at the masjid. But everywhere else you go. You carry your identity with pride. You are committed and you believe with certainty.

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

You're dedicated to this religion. And you are praying every day of your life that Allah preserves it in you and that you leave this world with La ilaha illallah wa

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

Amadora solo Allah may Allah make all of us from amongst them Allah whom I mean.

00:10:06--> 00:10:08

So now it's at this point

00:10:09--> 00:10:36

where after the questioning is over, that in sha Allah when it comes our turn in sha Allah we will respond with certainty. And after that moment, our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes to us many things will start to happen in the grave. A law will expand the grave, so big as far as the eyes can see.

00:10:38--> 00:10:58

The deceased is going to be flourished with clothing from Jenna. Their grave will also be a garden from the gardens of Jannah. Allah subhanho wa Taala will shower his acceptance upon the deceased.

00:10:59--> 00:11:03

And our Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam describes to us

00:11:04--> 00:11:29

that Allah will send an Angel and this angel will have a beautiful appearance. And the angel will come with a beautiful fragrance, nothing that you and I could compare it to in this world. And so the deceased will ask who are you what are you and it will respond. I am your righteous deeds.

00:11:30--> 00:12:29

I'm your Salah. I'm your fasting, I'm your sadaqa I'm your smile. I'm your self control. When you wanted to lose your anger, you held it together. I'm your righteous deeds, and the deceased will be so pleased and joyful at that moment. And our profits Eiling salatu salam describes that this angel that will come in the form of righteousness will keep them company in sha Allah Who Tarana until yo pm RMS messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also described to us that some of our ultimate explain that the righteous will also visit the other righteous within the graves SubhanAllah. So just think about it. There's a possibility that if any of you here lost your parents, Allah have mercy on them.

00:12:29--> 00:12:47

Or if you lost your children or your spouse at some point, just imagine that when your turn arrives, that inshallah Tada you will be reunited with them. And they will be happy and joyful. Our Prophet it here Salatu was Salam describes all of this.

00:12:48--> 00:13:16

So the question is, why am I sharing this with you? And the answer is, these days, a lot of the lectures are talking about preparing for Ramadan. And they give a lot of great advice. Take advantage of the month of chabang Start practicing and do some fast now. Start building a routine with the poor and do some extra fast charity, all of that good stuff will let you ham, which you know, there's one thing

00:13:17--> 00:13:25

I personally believe in sha Allah, we need it now more than ever, is to make Ramadan personal.

00:13:27--> 00:13:44

Make it really personal. Why, why? Remember what the two years have been like for all of us. And now with sha Allah, we get to gather somewhat, it's better than all the other years and insha Allah will be together and we will pray together, make Ramadan personal.

00:13:46--> 00:13:52

And start to think about if you haven't been doing this, start to think about you that one day,

00:13:53--> 00:13:56

you will also listen to the Janessa

00:13:57--> 00:13:59

one day you will meet those angels

00:14:00--> 00:14:04

because others will be praying over you

00:14:05--> 00:14:13

start to think about how you prepare for that. All of the rituals that were taught are excellent.

00:14:14--> 00:14:21

Start to assess if Islam arrived here for you. May Allah make that easy for all of us.

00:14:22--> 00:14:59

And there's one secret ingredient I mean, it's not really a secret, but you'll be surprised how accessible it is for you and I to have Islam resonate here permanently be is the lucky Tyler. You'll be surprised there's one thing we can all do. Some of us are doing it but all of us can do it too. This is what I will conclude with in a second part of the Volta May Allah as silica gel bless us in honor us with a time in this world that is bless it that is honored and he's pleased with May Allah azza wa jal allow

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

To welcome Shari Mubarak to the month of Ramadan in a way that is pleasing to Him Allah mein Akula matters marijuana stuff Allah honey welcome reset him assuming I'm including them. Stuff it all in hoo hoo la foto Rahim.

00:15:21--> 00:15:27

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Allah He of total Salah women were buried.

00:15:29--> 00:15:34

Lots of Muslims are asking these days how do I increase my Eman specially in Ramadan?

00:15:35--> 00:15:36

The answer

00:15:38--> 00:15:57

once you find the poor N, meaning once your heart finds it it's one thing when you listen to your favorite recite or that's great Alhamdulillah it's not enough. It's one thing when you're listening to lectures and you look at the Tafseer and all of that, that's great Alhamdulillah it's not enough

00:15:59--> 00:16:20

Haoran has to get here. It's got to be here. And that requires a consistent relationship of reciting reflecting and you depend on this book to resolve the worries and the struggles of your life. If you do that. How do I increase my Eman is a question you will rarely ask.

00:16:21--> 00:16:35

So if you are at that stage in your life, where you're still figuring out how to get your event to a place where it should be how to get to your potential. This is a sign

00:16:36--> 00:16:39

that you love the Quran.

00:16:40--> 00:17:01

You love the Quran, but it hasn't completely arrived here yet. So this song Ramadan, this little move on make it a month of the poor N for yourself on a personal level. Don't just depend on the man leading us in taraweeh. That's going to be my poor end for the month.

00:17:02--> 00:17:47

But try to develop a way in a time in a moment where you can open the Koran and start reading start reciting you don't know how to recite it simple learn because Allah still gave you a day and more time in this world because he sees you have the potential to do it to be his name Allah. Make Ramadan personal. So that insha Allah Who Tao that when these three questions come our way, we will confidently respond with certainty. May Allah bless us all with Jenna, may Allah allow all of our brothers and sisters in the righteous allow their graves to be a garden from the gardens of Jenna. May Allah subhanho wa Taala reunite all of us with our loved ones in Jenna to fit a dose in Allah.

00:17:48--> 00:18:32

May Allah azza wa jal allow us to welcome shahidul Ramadan May Allah azza wa jal give us the strength, knowledge, focus and sincerity that we will come this month and that we take full advantage of it and we maximize our time in the blessed month of Ramadan. And in sha Allah for the rest of our lives Allahumma Amin in Allahu wa mela ecotour who you saw Lunarlon today you have Latina Ermanno salute. Ali was certainly more Taslima Allahumma Salli.
