00:04:04--> 00:04:32

brothers and sisters in Islam from the Sonia of life is that the more blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala encompasses us in the more heedless we become of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is not a recent phenomenon, but rather This is something that used to happen at the time of the seller, or the Allahu tanaan home. And this is why we find the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, now I'm a journeyman boy and he met Jesse Edelman and nurse are so hot

00:04:33--> 00:04:46

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the two blessings that a lot of mankind are heedless of two blessings, a lot of mankind of mankind or heedless of our good health and free time.

00:04:48--> 00:04:58

And upon this date, in the midst of the summer, in the midst of the nice weather, all of us by the phrase Allah subhanho wa Taala are in good health

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

and

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

All of us by the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala are alive and able to make use of our time. So let us take a moment to visualize our brothers and sisters and reflect on how we spend our time. The importance of time is hidden from knowing we all know the importance of time. Look at the research in the Olympics, ask them the importance of one millisecond. The difference between first and second is that the one millisecond as the person who misses a train or plane the importance of five minutes and he will be able to explain it to you. But brothers and sisters these explanations are nothing in front of you explanations of Allah subhana wa Tada. Because take a moment and reflect all the

00:05:44--> 00:06:21

blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has bestowed upon you. You need two things in order to enjoy them any blessing that you have, from the nicest of houses to delicious Of course, to the prettiest of ways to anything that you consider a blessing. You will need these two things that are specially just some alojado said I mentioned. You will need good health and you will need the time. How many of you are able to enjoy? The red Ferrari is in the red Corvette and the black Lamborghinis without good health. How many of you are able to enjoy them without time? How many of you are able to enjoy the blessings of your children without good health and good time? All those messages so lohani was

00:06:21--> 00:06:32

sent him informed us and warned us against this. So take heed brothers and sisters. Now let us reflect how Allah subhanho wa Taala informs us about the importance of times

00:06:33--> 00:07:07

Allah subhana wa tada in his infinite knowledge and wisdom, he swears and takes an oath by nothing except that which is of the utmost importance. So brothers and sisters take a moment and reflect upon Susanna and see how many of the sewers start by time. Allah subhana wa tada says well after by time Allah subhanaw taala Swain and Allah subhanaw taala says well, when the sun is at its high point Allah subhanaw taala is swearing By this time, and Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:07:08--> 00:07:45

Allah subhanaw taala swearing by the dawn This is almost a Pinilla salad, the most wise and the most knowledgeable, the one who is wisdom, knows no limits, Allah subhanaw taala dinosaurs by these things. So indeed, we have to be of the utmost importance. But the importance of time does not stop with Allah subhanaw taala but rather the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues, and he informs us of with a very eloquent hubby's summarizing what we need to be cautious and aware of when he saw the law while he was said and said let us all furthermore have done your touch

00:07:46--> 00:07:54

on an easy math nerd, why should the female observe while learning human acceptable who are female and suffer

00:07:55--> 00:08:00

Amelie heat up once in a while Mirjana

00:08:01--> 00:08:15

Amaz messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that the two feet of Adams will not move on your piano. Your two feet will not move on your piano. Until you are asked for things

00:08:17--> 00:08:21

you will be asked on your life and how you spent it.

00:08:22--> 00:09:05

And you will be asked about your use and what you did with it. And you will be asked about your wealth. Where did you earn it? And where did you spend it? And then you will be asked about the knowledge that Allah Subhana Allah gave you What did you do with it? brothers and sisters? After hearing such a hadith? Will we not fear? Will we not fear that sense? That station on your piano where we are in front of Allah subhana wa tada and we're trembling out of fear, yet our feet are unable to move until we answer these questions adequately and appropriately. Are you ready to answer these questions in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala when he asked you, what did you do with your

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

life or my sleep?

00:09:08--> 00:09:50

And he asked you, what did you do with your youth? When I granted you power and strength and enthusiasm? What did you do and your use? And the money? Why did you how did you earn it? And where did you spend it? Did you earn it in our own means by selling alcohol and by selling drugs and by selling cigarettes? Or did you want to get a holiday bonus by sharing those things and doing those things which Allah subhana wa tada has permitted? And how did you spend your money? Did you spend it upon your children and your family deserves? Or did you take it and spend it at the casino and the worst and most despicable Virtus for the sisters? Are you ready to ask Allah subhana wa Tada. And

00:09:50--> 00:09:50

then lastly,

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

lastly, he will question you about the knowledge that he's granted. Each and every one of us had knowledge of Islam

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

Will not ignore.

00:10:02--> 00:10:26

Yes, it is our very desires that conquer and diminish our souls and do not allow us to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala or worship that he is most deserving. So don't question yourself brothers and sisters, the wisdom that you have, are you implementing it or not? And this life that Allah subhana wa tada has given you, are you taking advantage of it or not?

00:10:27--> 00:10:33

And the world that Allah subhanho wa Taala has bestowed upon you, are you taking advantage of it or not?

00:10:34--> 00:11:02

And the reminder of Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doesn't end over here, but rather he mentions and a hadith narrated by ability of us Kabbalah, consumer, no Quran, these are the triggers given to our beloved now bus, the ocean of knowledge, the scholar of the soma, and the one who translated what I know interprets it. These are the titles give a chapter in others and in here Is this normal Haji when he says

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

his attorney and constant call bla

00:11:07--> 00:11:10

bla bla for me was the hockey Cobra soccer.

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

Soccer

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

rasa tabula

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

rasa tabula rasa

00:11:18--> 00:11:25

Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, Take advantage of five things before five things.

00:11:26--> 00:11:57

Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Take advantage of your youth before you become old. And take advantage of your good health before you become sick. And take advantage of your wealth before you become poor. And take advantage of your free time before you become busy. And take advantage of your life before you die. Brothers and sisters, these are the very words of our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu. It is

00:11:58--> 00:12:08

indeed the one who was sent as alleged to this oma, the one who has said as a bearer of glad tidings and as a wonder, he has warning us Yes,

00:12:09--> 00:12:53

advising us at the same time that take advantage of these four things. So now, in the summer, when you guys are on vacation, and you have all the time that you need to spend it as you will, please What do you not reflect upon this very Helene weldless message of some of the low Hollywood cinema is advising you wholeheartedly that take advantage of your life. Take advantage of your time. Take advantage of your good health, for indeed you will be asked about his influence of Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells us exclusive explicitly in the Quran, what our purpose is in life. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, for Hashem unima Hola Hola, como

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

la Nana, Zhang?

00:12:58--> 00:13:09

Does mankind state. Do you think that Allah subhana wa Jalla created you without a purpose? Do you think that he created you without a reason? And that you shall not return to us?

00:13:11--> 00:13:32

Allah subhanho wa Taala asked this rhetorical question so that we may take heed. Don't be foolish in deceiving yourself that you may think that you are here in this dunya to enjoy the sort of the life No, but right Allah subhanho wa Taala created you for his worship. Allah subhanho wa Taala explicitly says, will not put up the agenda will insane idea

00:13:33--> 00:13:37

that I did not create mankind and the gym.

00:13:38--> 00:13:50

Not to enjoy this like not to drive their cars not to work like workaholics 24 hours a day, but rather to worship me to worship Allah soprano was the one who creates us and sustains us.

00:13:52--> 00:14:33

But it is it is our worship is not restricted to solo and cm. But even the work that we do at our jobs can become an act of a burger. If we seek a holiday risk for our families. Even the spending of our time with our children can become an act of a burden. And we seek their love and we seek to give them the adventuring and conservation that they need and desire this they can become absolutely burdah so do not say that Allah subhana wa tada has placed any hardship upon you, but rather he has facilitated paradise for you. And it is up for your grabbing to take. It is up to you to decide what you do with your time and with your good health.

00:14:36--> 00:14:52

So now, we're often reminded of the great examples of our predecessors. Let us take a moment and reflect upon some of the things that have not been and follow karate alongside on who he said in the last row who

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

we are Mila dunya

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

Oh my god. Oh, sorry.

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

Who said that? I hate to see any one of you wasting their time doing absolutely nothing.

00:15:08--> 00:15:41

Not doing an action of this dunya where you are benefited more doing an action of the RTR or that you are benefited. Brothers and sisters, how many hours? Do we spend 16 hour Gordon's and our performance? Ask yourself this question. While you're busy taking care of your yard and your lawn in this dunya who is taking care of your lawn yard in more than the accuracy while you're busy fixing and repairing your house in this dunya who is supposed to be building your house in the archaea while you're busy enjoying the pleasures

00:15:42--> 00:16:14

and exquisite joys of this dunya who will enjoy the exquisite pleasures of the Acura if you leave yourself to this dunya you will have no share of the Acura but rather you can have the the dunya by doing your actions for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala to take advantage of that. And then you have another bursary or the alone time the great scholar of Islam, the man of the Serbian who says in Yemen on

00:16:16--> 00:16:57

Bravo, that he said indeed you are a number of days. Indeed you are limited number of days. So if one of your days goes by, then know that part of you is gone as well. So brothers and sisters take advantage of this opportunity while you're here in the summer while you're here on this holiday. While you're here just enjoying yourselves that turns even your permissible after this dunya is acts of worship, the righteous intentions do not become heedless of this murder. Do not become heedless, for indeed it will come back to bite you on the Olympia just like others messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said that your fees will not move on your model piano until you are asked them those

00:16:57--> 00:17:13

four things. And what were those four things, your life, your time your good health, your money and your knowledge, you will not spend them in a way that is beloved and pleasing to Allah Subhana Allah and then reflect upon each other saying

00:17:16--> 00:17:19

what he said to him and

00:17:20--> 00:17:20

watching him

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

and adore him so much.

00:17:25--> 00:17:54

That he says, I have seen a people I have seen a nation who are more severe in constraining their time than you are in constraining your dinners and your their homes. They were more stingy with their time than you are stingy with your wealth. And each and every one knows how stingy one can be when the with the world. Allah subhana wa tada describes the nature of mankind when he says, Well, your headboard and murder have been Jannah that mankind will love Well,

00:17:56--> 00:18:24

I love that cannot even be described. It's just disclosed. And once you do that, he loves it so much, that he loves it in the fullness. This is how Allah subhanho wa Taala describes it. So we know how stingy mankind can be. And here is hustle and bustle is the email of the terrain describing the Sahaba the Allahu taala and home saying that they were more stingy with their time, they were more cautious of how they spend their time than you are in how you spend your dollars in your sense.

00:18:26--> 00:18:38

We often claim to follow the companies we often claim to follow the targeting. But where is this implementation? And what is this emulation when it comes to the preservers of our time?

00:18:39--> 00:19:20

This concept of time telling brothers and sisters does not exist in Islam. And if you just take a moment and reflect on how our predecessors spent their time, you would realize this and before we get to that, let us take two last things. These nilanjana taala Yeah, he has a wife. He says alone are we alone further takachiho demonic wonderhowto perseroan para toda needs to be turning your head against one of the great demands of our predecessors he said that indeed, the night is long. Indeed the night is long, too. Do not shorten it with your sleep. And indeed, the days are long.

00:19:21--> 00:19:23

So do not make them filthy with your

00:19:24--> 00:19:27

brothers and sisters. Take a moment and reflect upon this statement.

00:19:28--> 00:19:33

We all know that Allah subhanaw taala created a natural urge was sleeping the night

00:19:34--> 00:19:39

you take a moment and reflect what happens to us. When instead of sleeping.

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

Six to eight hours of sleeping 10 to 12 do not wake up with this disgusting feeling. Do not wake up with these feelings. Say that what have I done? What have been wasted my time is not only did I not benefit from my sleep, meaning I am not relaxed and comforted but rather it feels as if I'm in need.

00:20:00--> 00:20:21

horseweed Now, this is what happens. So this is the noble emergency, the night is long. Don't make it even shorter with these long lists of sleep, but rather spend part of your life with your family, spend part of your night sleeping, fulfilling that natural urge, and likewise spent part of that lives in the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala

00:20:22--> 00:20:27

always meets the prayer. The prayer of tahajjud is not supposed to upon us.

00:20:28--> 00:21:09

But what will happen? What will happen to us when we show up on yomo piano and we are deficient in our five daily prayers, the fight obligates, rephrase that Allah subhanho wa Taala made compulsory upon us and we're sorting them, how would you make up for those losses? It is by none other than your super aggressively First, it is by this clear malaise that you can fill those gaps. It is by this clear malaise that you seek the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and it is by this clear Malays, that you become those people who praise Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and make dua to him. And then Allah subhana wa tada says, Who is there that is asking me to that the only grant him and

00:21:09--> 00:21:12

who is there seeking my forgiveness, so that I need forgive him.

00:21:13--> 00:21:17

And lastly, we ended with the statements of audio of the Allahu taala

00:21:18--> 00:21:26

as recorded by enamel Bukhari and his so he is when he said, in the dunya errata, Hadith most beratan were in the

00:21:28--> 00:21:32

Mahabharata and when he killed a man by noon, for corn mill,

00:21:34--> 00:21:40

economy Abner Jr. The inner Yama Ananda was

00:21:41--> 00:21:58

born Villa Ahmed, Ali rhodiola, who saw the noble and illustrious companions, the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his son in law, he said that indeed, the Jr. is traveling further away, and the ACA is coming closer.

00:22:00--> 00:22:21

And both of them have children, so be children of the asherah and do not be children of this dunya For indeed, today there is action without accountability. And tomorrow, there is accountability without action. And we end off by asking Allah subhana wa tada by granting us that Oh, fear of taking advantage of our times, and our hotels.

00:22:23--> 00:22:29

Our software, aloha Lee, welcome. When he said it, it must be mean and equaliser. First off, you're in number one.

00:22:47--> 00:22:59

Mind over him. And from billionaire hero alameen wa sallahu. My wife dun dun da da da, da, da, da, da, Habibi no more. While he was he was on them.

00:23:03--> 00:23:21

Like I mentioned, we often claim to follow the example of our predecessors. We claim to be all those people who live up to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu. It was send them Yes, sadly, this is an empty claim. Now let's take a moment and reflect upon

00:23:22--> 00:23:45

the actions of our predecessors and how they spent their time. Here we have Imran Medina, one of these great scholars of Hadith. He is describing how he spends his nights. And he says, I divide my nights into three parts. I sleep, one sort of it. I study hidey holes. And I pray to my Lord once

00:23:46--> 00:23:59

you see that he doesn't even mention his family. He leaves the type of spending with his family during the date while he's busy working, and he leaves the need for what he needs most. Sleep is an urge that we all need to fulfill.

00:24:00--> 00:24:23

Yes. How about the needs of our very soul? How about the need of knowledge for status satisfied? Who were pushed this thirst and hunger if we don't do it? This is Emerald Nina. And then we see Albuquerque. I know Jarrod the great Eman the teacher of enamel Sharpie Rahim Allah husana saying

00:24:24--> 00:24:27

that during a night, I read one third of the Quran.

00:24:28--> 00:24:37

And then I spent some of my time in Allah to Allah subhana wa Asana and then up until fudger he still

00:24:39--> 00:24:45

nobody the sisters, you can take a moment and reflect upon these great and glorious individuals,

00:24:46--> 00:24:57

Sophia and authority. But I came along with that. He mentioned in Surah Allah, Allah, a book by Dr. Mo lozada that she committed 20 sins

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

now if you think

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

You may be boggled as to how a man can claim he committed 20 sins alone. If you take a moment and reflect upon his life, you will see that set individuals were so busy in worshipping a loss of penance.

00:25:14--> 00:25:14

But

00:25:16--> 00:25:26

I know this is one of the ones, we can safely say that the rest of the amounts are something close to this greater or worse, no, not too far apart. And we mentioned that

00:25:28--> 00:26:07

he was fully equipped enough. So he spent a lot of part of his next seeking is the fun and seeking repentance and forgiveness of Allah subhana wa tada was, he has such minimal sense that How about us who may commit more than 20 cents a day, sometimes more than 20 cents an hour, when we walk through the streets of downtown LA, we're driving our switch through downtown, we're looking at things that we shouldn't be looking at, we're listening to the things that we shouldn't be listening to, we're thinking about things that we should be thinking about. These are the very things that you commit in the matter of minutes. And these are the things that he didn't even permit your lifetime. Yet he

00:26:07--> 00:26:45

spent the night in his because then you have absorbed even at the heart of another pitfall of Heidi's talking about how he spent his time with his father. Often we talked about how we should be teaching our kids to play basketball and baseball and making them athletes and taking them to the park and just spending their time in these affairs. Yet look at how many big houses the great speller spends his time with his father. He said my father would enter the door and I would start questioning him about disease. And he would eat and I would be questioning him, he would be walking to the masjid and I would be questioning him he would be going to the bathroom and I would be

00:26:45--> 00:27:08

questioning him. What is this this is this is how they spent their time. And this is how we realized that you did not become these individuals by wasting your time and spending the time and limiting the time to only occurs alone. But rather they spent it in the worship of Allah subhanaw taala and it's not a waste of how to get closer to Allah subhanho wa sallam, even through

00:27:09--> 00:27:10

even through their worldly affairs.

00:27:12--> 00:27:22

And lastly, our noble predecessors, they often used to remind one another. They often used to remind one another with a short sword.

00:27:23--> 00:27:58

A sword that most of us recite when we're tired and laksa days ago. Yes, innominate chef, Mo Allahu taala. He said about the sawed off Lola Angela who has written on a philosophy in that Heidi has showed off the peppers from the side of supanova Johanna says no other proof upon mankind accepted this surah it would have sufficed What is this? What are brothers and sisters? It is none other than one awesome in insert and happy poster in Edina no army no saw the heart was also been happy with the law. So this summer,

00:27:59--> 00:28:50

Allah subhana wa tada swears by time and he says that indeed by time, all of mankind is in a state of loss in the Ludhiana, no army goes for the heart, except those people who are home with faith and have done righteous deeds. Work also been happy with the last oh this summer, and encourage one another and push one another. upon what upon truth and upon patience, were indeed the truth does not come easily, one has to seek it out. And once one is on his way to seeking this truth, you will bear many hardships. So we need to push and make one another enthusiastic to this. So Allah subhanho wa Taala he limits success to these things by believing and coming with righteous actions. And by

00:28:50--> 00:29:14

encouraging one another on the truth and by encouraging one another upon patience. We are still looking to partner with startups to purchase these novel characteristics and to make us like our predecessors. So there's the tsunami returned to its glory and honor and respect that is one tide and remind you all of a great commandment Allah subhanho wa Taala began with himself when you said in the law hola mundo

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

was so afraid her demeanor and wireless emerged. Along with the models on our model does mostly mean a lot must be modeled on our model done with streaming along Michigan.

brothers and sisters during the lines until we get

00:31:13--> 00:31:35

to know in a possible performance analysis Allah complete the lines intelligence for indeed the filling of the lines and the completing of the gaps is certainly professional affair.
