Friday Khutbah of February 12, 2016 from brother Rateb Marai warning against being heedless and having the wrong attitude. YOLO (you only live once) is a fallacy. The truth is YODO you only die once, and you will be raised again to an afterlife.

friend asked Alhaji Kitagawa

00:01:19--> 00:01:27

he had been abena Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira

00:01:40--> 00:01:45

My dear brothers and respective sisters they ask Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:46--> 00:01:52

to bless you and your loved ones and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah to elevate your ranks.

00:01:53--> 00:02:02

And ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to gather us with our beloved prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, as he has gathered us on this blessed day in the highest of Paradise

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

with your brothers and respected sisters

00:02:07--> 00:02:13

narrated by both Imam Bukhari and Muslim Allah have mercy upon them.

00:02:15--> 00:02:18

That the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam said

00:02:21--> 00:02:25

on the day of reckoning on the Day of Judgment,

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

death will be brought forward,

00:02:30--> 00:02:39

death will be brought forward and it will be brought forward in the shape or the form of a white rap

00:02:41--> 00:02:41

sheet

00:02:45--> 00:02:51

and they will be placed between the people of Paradise and the people of hellfire.

00:02:55--> 00:02:58

And the people of Paradise will be asked

00:03:00--> 00:03:03

Do you recognize this? Do you know what this is?

00:03:04--> 00:03:10

So, they will raise their necks and look at it? And say yes, it is.

00:03:14--> 00:03:21

And then the people of the Hellfire will be asked, Do you recognize this? Do you know what this is?

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

So they will raise their rent next?

00:03:26--> 00:03:30

And look to it. Say yes, is that

00:03:31--> 00:03:34

so Allah subhanho wa Taala will then

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

command that it will be slaughtered.

00:03:40--> 00:03:44

And so, death will be smarter.

00:03:45--> 00:03:48

Death is a form in the form of a sheet will be slaughtered.

00:03:50--> 00:03:53

And it will be sent to the people of paradise.

00:03:55--> 00:04:00

You will have an everlasting life you will have

00:04:01--> 00:04:02

eternal life

00:04:03--> 00:04:04

and you shall not die.

00:04:06--> 00:04:10

And then the people of the Hellfire will be told

00:04:11--> 00:04:15

you will have everlasting eternal life and you shall not die.

00:04:17--> 00:04:22

And then the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam recited the following verse.

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

When Yo man hustle

00:04:27--> 00:04:30

wonderboom yo Malhotra T is OBL

00:04:33--> 00:04:36

won't be reflecting wahama You know,

00:04:39--> 00:04:42

he recited the verse which translates to

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

and to warn them.

00:04:46--> 00:04:52

Allah subhana wa Taala is telling the family stilettos to them and to warn them about the day

00:04:55--> 00:04:56

of regret.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

warn them about

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

They have regret when the matter is concluded

00:05:07--> 00:05:12

and they are in a state of heedlessness, and they do not believe.

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

The Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam

00:05:20--> 00:05:23

mentioned this verse after mentioning

00:05:25--> 00:05:31

this affair that will happen on the Day of Judgment, because there's a tie there's a connection.

00:05:36--> 00:05:38

And the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam

00:05:40--> 00:05:54

is the most knowledgeable with the Quran in the words of Allah subhana wa Tada. And as the scholars have said, Allah Subhana Allah in this verse is referring to the slaughter of death,

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

that death shall no longer existence.

00:06:04--> 00:06:13

And he's telling the Prophet alayhi salatu salam to warn them of that day, when that will happen. Yet they remain heatless.

00:06:15--> 00:06:23

They remain heedless, as they believe they do not change their actions do not work towards that day.

00:06:25--> 00:06:27

Whether they be a non Muslim,

00:06:28--> 00:06:36

but not accepted the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala, or the message of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam or the Muslims

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

who are heedless

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

of what is to come.

00:06:44--> 00:06:53

And what greater What is this greater of a reminder than death not only in this dunya

00:06:54--> 00:06:56

but also in the

00:06:59--> 00:07:03

day where you can't take

00:07:05--> 00:07:10

a day where Allah subhanahu wa tada says, This is no more.

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

If you're in Paradise,

00:07:14--> 00:07:15

you will be there forever.

00:07:17--> 00:07:21

And if you're in the Hellfire, you will be there forever for eternity.

00:07:22--> 00:07:29

And then another narration when Allah subhanahu wa tada tells the people of Paradise you will have everlasting,

00:07:30--> 00:07:33

eternal life, and you shall not taste death again.

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

is mentioned that out of their joy and happiness and what they have been blessed with,

00:07:43--> 00:07:47

if it was not written that there's no more deaths that would have died out of joy.

00:07:50--> 00:07:56

They would have died out of happiness. And as for the people of the Hellfire, if it had not been written,

00:07:57--> 00:07:59

that there is no more death.

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

They would have died out of grief and sorrow to the situation they are.

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

And so, my dear brothers and respected sisters, our topic for today is heedlessness I love

00:08:18--> 00:08:19

being heedless

00:08:21--> 00:08:24

is something we are often challenged with,

00:08:25--> 00:08:28

even as practicing Muslims.

00:08:30--> 00:08:34

And Allah subhanho wa Taala has made it clear

00:08:35--> 00:08:39

that heedlessness being heedless

00:08:40--> 00:08:55

is something that is frowned upon something that is low by Allah subhanahu wa taala is hating by Allah subhanho wa Taala for when he tells the Prophet sallahu wa Salaam to remember his thorn

00:08:58--> 00:09:04

in his private affairs, out of humility and out of fear, he ends the verse with one

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

minute

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

remember your Lord be with those who are heedless. Do not be amongst these people that

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

do care.

00:09:19--> 00:09:23

They are not conscious and mindful of what is to happen

00:09:24--> 00:09:29

due to their actions Don't be with those people. No

00:09:30--> 00:09:36

no the consequences know what your actions what fruits they're gonna bear

00:09:41--> 00:09:43

and the loss of Allah

00:09:44--> 00:09:46

he forbids us

00:09:47--> 00:09:53

from obey those who are heedless. What are

00:09:54--> 00:09:57

the Kareena whatever hahaha

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

And to obey

00:10:05--> 00:10:07

the one who we have removed

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

from his heart

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

The one who is heedless, not obey that person.

00:10:16--> 00:10:18

Do not be friend him.

00:10:20--> 00:10:23

Don't Don't be his companion.

00:10:25--> 00:10:26

Well, I took offense

00:10:31--> 00:10:32

to follow this person

00:10:34--> 00:10:42

we have removed the remembers from his heart he is he this, not follow him Do not be his friend. This is the command.

00:10:46--> 00:10:52

Why? Just because he doesn't remember a lot. No, because he follows his desire.

00:10:53--> 00:10:57

He follows his whims and desires and what he wants to do.

00:10:58--> 00:11:06

And his affair is in neglect doesn't care what his actions, what the consequences and the repercussions will be.

00:11:15--> 00:11:25

He does not only show us that being heedless has consequences, and that we should not be around the people that are he placed by he tells us about people,

00:11:27--> 00:11:32

people that have failed in life due to their heedlessness

00:11:34--> 00:11:38

they will not they will not be successful in the hereafter.

00:11:39--> 00:11:39

Yeah.

00:11:46--> 00:11:55

That these people that will not be successful, they know the affairs of this world. They know about this.

00:11:58--> 00:12:01

And they are neglectful, they're heedless of the ACA.

00:12:04--> 00:12:04

And

00:12:05--> 00:12:07

there's nothing wrong

00:12:08--> 00:12:09

with enjoying this world.

00:12:10--> 00:12:12

But not at the expense of our

00:12:13--> 00:12:19

you see people you ask them about anything that's related to this. They have an answer for you.

00:12:21--> 00:12:28

How To Make Money, they have an answer for you. How to get the best car you have an answer for how to get the best house,

00:12:30--> 00:12:46

marriage, anything, whatever it may be schooling, what profession to be, how to get there, they'll know all of that stuff. And all of this pertains to the dunya they will know it. But when it comes to the Acura they're heedless.

00:12:47--> 00:13:04

They don't they occupy themselves with this world to the extent that they do not know anything about eternal life. They're going to whether it be eternity in bliss in paradise or eternity in torment and punishment in the hellfire.

00:13:06--> 00:13:08

So we have to be heedful of this.

00:13:10--> 00:13:17

We have to take the words of the Quran to heart, understand them

00:13:18--> 00:13:32

and not be amongst the hate list and not befriend the headless rather try our best to be hateful of the messenger. To be hateful, have a day where death

00:13:33--> 00:13:42

is slaughtered. And whatever decisions you have made those those you will bear the consequences for eternity.

00:13:45--> 00:13:46

My dear brothers

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

and respected sisters.

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

There are three types

00:13:57--> 00:14:03

of uselessness or three categories that you can categorize yourself.

00:14:06--> 00:14:09

The first is complete heedlessness?

00:14:10--> 00:14:17

Absolutely the ultimate uses which is Kufa which is this belief

00:14:19--> 00:14:24

which is the state of the disbelievers. And ask Allah subhana wa Taala to protect us all from disbelief.

00:14:26--> 00:14:28

The one who lives his life

00:14:30--> 00:14:34

as they like and as they please, they do not know.

00:14:36--> 00:14:48

They do not know what the message of Islam is. They could not care less. They're heedless of what will happen to them. What will be the result of their actions? They know nothing.

00:14:49--> 00:14:53

And whether it is due to ignorance

00:14:55--> 00:14:57

or carelessness

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

they're one in the same

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

They're still classified as people that are

00:15:05--> 00:15:06

there in government

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

and they will not wake up from this heedlessness

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

until the day of judgment.

00:15:17--> 00:15:21

And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam tells us

00:15:22--> 00:15:30

as narrated by my Buhari may Allah have mercy on him, that a man from the Hellfire will be brought forth on a day of judgment.

00:15:31--> 00:15:32

And he will be told,

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

or he will be asked.

00:15:36--> 00:15:39

Supposed you were given a

00:15:41--> 00:15:45

goal that will fill the earth

00:15:47--> 00:15:51

you're given an amount of gold as much gold as it would take to fill

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

the whole earth.

00:15:57--> 00:16:08

ground up to ground everything go? Would you ransom it? Would you give it to save yourself from the Hellfire?

00:16:10--> 00:16:12

So the man says yes.

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

Yes, I would.

00:16:17--> 00:16:28

So he would be told he will be told. you're asked to do something easier. you're asked to do something simpler than that.

00:16:29--> 00:16:34

To worship alone, embrace Islam. That's all you have.

00:16:35--> 00:16:43

We don't want a world worth of gold. No, no, just to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. To follow the teachings of the Prophet is

00:16:48--> 00:16:49

the second category

00:16:51--> 00:16:53

is recurring.

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

heedlessness

00:16:57--> 00:17:04

recurring eastland heedlessness meaning somebody is heedless often and frequently.

00:17:07--> 00:17:13

They barely get out of that state of hypnosis. And this applies to the disobedient

00:17:14--> 00:17:15

Muslim,

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

the Muslim that does not care about their Deen, they do not care about their actions.

00:17:24--> 00:17:26

They don't learn about their religion.

00:17:28--> 00:17:33

And even if they know what they're supposed to do, and what they're supposed to stay away from,

00:17:34--> 00:17:35

they don't care.

00:17:37--> 00:17:47

They just go about their life as they please they might say that, Mohammed Rasulullah, but they do not fulfill the conditions of law.

00:17:49--> 00:17:53

They don't follow the teachings of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.

00:17:55--> 00:18:02

And sometimes it's hard to even differentiate them, their actions from the actions of non stop.

00:18:04--> 00:18:08

And so you might remind this person and they might

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

become hateful.

00:18:11--> 00:18:13

They might change their way.

00:18:14--> 00:18:18

And then it would relapse, they would go back to what they were doing.

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

They would just go back.

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

And we ask

00:18:24--> 00:18:29

Allah to protect us from this category of people that are here.

00:18:32--> 00:18:36

Last but not least, the third category

00:18:37--> 00:18:38

of being heedless,

00:18:40--> 00:18:43

is infrequent and rare.

00:18:46--> 00:18:53

heedlessness. And this applies to the believer who is righteous who is pious.

00:18:54--> 00:18:58

There might come a time, once in a blue moon

00:19:00--> 00:19:01

where

00:19:02--> 00:19:12

they might be heedless of their religion or of their actions or the consequences and the repercussions in the hereafter. It happens

00:19:14--> 00:19:28

but the difference is that as soon as they get these impulses from the shavon or as soon as they start to lose their way they are reminded and they rectify their actions.

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

They rectify it

00:19:34--> 00:19:43

so they don't let it they don't let it go on. They don't let it consume them and change their belief. If

00:19:45--> 00:19:47

they came to salon late once or

00:19:48--> 00:19:51

twice. They will not do it a third time.

00:19:53--> 00:19:57

I will say I was late yesterday for Salah

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

today

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

leaving everything

00:20:02--> 00:20:23

going there earlier they rectify their action. They figure out what's going wrong. And right away they have the remedy by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is the category we want to be amongst. If we are heedless, we rectify our actions right away. We get rid of this heedlessness

00:20:25--> 00:20:30

and we ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to make us hateful

00:20:31--> 00:20:35

and the consequences of our actions in this dunya

00:20:37--> 00:20:38

and in the

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

western cinema de Vaca festa.

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

Cambodia Laos, salatu salam ala rasulillah

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

woman Hala

00:21:09--> 00:21:11

Medina. Salam

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

Alaikum Salam Alaikum Allah Allah Mohammed

00:21:17--> 00:21:18

Ali Ibrahim,

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

Mohamed

00:21:23--> 00:21:25

Salah Ibrahim, Ibrahim,

00:21:27--> 00:21:29

my dear brothers and sisters,

00:21:31--> 00:21:34

lots of animals subhanho wa Taala says and upon that, I believe

00:21:39--> 00:21:44

that the account of mankind the judgment of mankind has come near,

00:21:46--> 00:21:51

it has come near, yet they are heedless, and they turn away.

00:21:52--> 00:21:56

They are heedless, they turn away Muslim and or non Muslim.

00:21:57--> 00:21:59

There are heedless of a day

00:22:00--> 00:22:01

of sorrow,

00:22:02--> 00:22:05

a day of regret a day of judgment.

00:22:06--> 00:22:12

They do not think often enough about what they will read in the hereafter.

00:22:14--> 00:22:17

And there are a few reasons for this.

00:22:19--> 00:22:20

And we will mention

00:22:21--> 00:22:40

a couple inshallah. The first is that they occupied themselves they are cleaned with this world and what this world contains. They're always worrying about what they can attain in this world what they can have and achieved in this world. And this makes them heedless of the hereafter.

00:22:42--> 00:22:44

It puts them in the state of heedlessness,

00:22:45--> 00:22:54

it keeps them away from worshipping Allah, it keeps them away from obeying the law to set up increases in sin and deviation.

00:22:57--> 00:23:12

And so, why does it matter? How we are perceived in this world? Why does it matter? how rich I am? Or how successful I am? Or how good looking I am.

00:23:14--> 00:23:16

When all of this

00:23:17--> 00:23:18

were resolved

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

in the Hellfire

00:23:24--> 00:23:25

what is the purpose?

00:23:26--> 00:23:37

If there's no good there's no sincerity. There's no following the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, you can look as fly as you like. You can be as rich

00:23:39--> 00:23:40

as you like.

00:23:42--> 00:23:43

And as successful as you'd like.

00:23:46--> 00:23:50

But that day, is slaughtered. Where will you be

00:23:51--> 00:23:58

in Paradise and Hellfire? Wouldn't have been worth it. Did you use this dunya for your Acura

00:23:59--> 00:24:04

for the blesser paradise or for the torment of the Hellfire? What did you use it for?

00:24:09--> 00:24:11

priorities.

00:24:13--> 00:24:16

You can't prioritize if you're heatless.

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

We must ask Allah Subhana Allah to take us out of the state.

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

Secondly,

00:24:30--> 00:24:32

following one's desires and whims

00:24:34--> 00:24:41

because following those desires and wins, even if even sometimes they might be permissible,

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

something permissible that you can do

00:24:46--> 00:24:55

but as you go down the road and you're increasing that it will take away the feeling from your heart, the feeling

00:24:57--> 00:25:00

of being hateful of remember

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

There's a day of judgment of remembering that last final data will judge me. I'm busying myself with things that will not

00:25:09--> 00:25:12

with things that will not help me in the Hereafter, is that

00:25:14--> 00:25:20

going to increase our chances of going to gender or decrease our chances, whatever you're doing.

00:25:21--> 00:25:32

And that leads us to the third thing, which is the heart, not feeling remorse or guilt for any sins that are committed for any shortcoming.

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

That is dangerous.

00:25:36--> 00:25:39

And this is where the principle of an

00:25:40--> 00:25:44

encore comes in, to enjoin good and forbid evil.

00:25:46--> 00:25:49

If we don't do good,

00:25:50--> 00:25:53

and we don't enjoy, and we

00:25:54--> 00:25:57

delve into evil, and don't forbid evil,

00:25:58--> 00:26:01

then we will not care anymore. Our hearts would die.

00:26:03--> 00:26:15

Our hearts would have no feeling. Somebody can do a sin, and you couldn't care less. It's their life. Let them do whatever they want, who am I to judge them?

00:26:17--> 00:26:20

When Allah subhanho wa Taala explicitly

00:26:22--> 00:26:32

told us that we are the best of nation and what makes us the best of nations is that we we enjoin good and forbid evil,

00:26:34--> 00:26:35

no matter what situation

00:26:39--> 00:26:40

and so

00:26:43--> 00:26:48

the repercussions of heedlessness can be in this dunya or in the

00:26:49--> 00:26:51

US for this video.

00:26:52--> 00:26:55

The punishment will encompass us if we are here.

00:26:56--> 00:26:59

Because we will be amongst the people that this will be in sin.

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

And Allah subhana wa tada might punish us with these people, whomever they are,

00:27:07--> 00:27:12

because they are disappearing, a lot of the profit police officers are Do not be answered.

00:27:13--> 00:27:19

Why Allah subhanaw taala answer your dryer when you are disobeying when you're turning away from

00:27:22--> 00:27:23

when you are making fun

00:27:24--> 00:27:26

of him and of the sooner

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

and turning away from what the prophet alayhi salatu salam struggled to bring forth to us.

00:27:35--> 00:27:38

As for the accuracy,

00:27:41--> 00:27:51

sorrow, sorrow, regret, that is a punishment in itself, where the person says, Oh, I should have

00:27:54--> 00:27:56

Oh, I could have done this.

00:27:58--> 00:28:00

But it's too late.

00:28:01--> 00:28:04

As the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam said

00:28:06--> 00:28:07

that there is not a person in the

00:28:08--> 00:28:19

gender in Paradise, except they will be shown the place in the Hellfire so that they may increase in thankfulness and gratefulness to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:28:20--> 00:28:28

And there is not a person in the Hellfire, except they'll be shown their place in Jannah if they had believed

00:28:29--> 00:28:32

so that they may increase in sorrow and regret.

00:28:34--> 00:28:43

And the worst of all, is the Hellfire itself the punishment of the Hellfire, we seek refuge in Allah subhanaw taala from the Hellfire, the people of the Hellfire

00:28:46--> 00:28:52

in a quick way, my dear brothers and sisters, to rectify the situation we are in

00:28:54--> 00:28:57

the situation of heedlessness

00:28:59--> 00:29:02

is to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:29:03--> 00:29:05

these are action points These are things we can do.

00:29:07--> 00:29:12

Right away we can use the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

keep remembering

00:29:17--> 00:29:20

with anything No. So Panama hamdulillah

00:29:23--> 00:29:39

whatever it may be some how La La, la, la La whatever you know, and all the time you remember, you're mindful of Allah, how could you be heedless when you are always, always remembering the lesson that

00:29:41--> 00:29:51

keeps you in check. Secondly, do ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to take you out of the state to keep you informed of your actions

00:29:54--> 00:29:55

and the consequences

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

and last but not least

00:30:02--> 00:30:02

Remember,

00:30:04--> 00:30:08

remember death for people in this

00:30:10--> 00:30:16

in this world often forget death, the reality that is the certainty of death.

00:30:18--> 00:30:37

And people can go around as much as they like saying, You only live once and YOLO and this and that, but the reality is the opposite. You only die once. You only die once. Then after that eternal bliss or eternal punishment.

00:30:40--> 00:30:55

I asked Allah to grant us heedfulness and ask Allah subhana wa tada to keep us away from heedlessness to keep us away from the people of heedlessness of dunya has an affinity Hashanah joaquina Davina welcome Sala.
