horn horn stuff little horn over here want to talk about it?
When I was a biller human should audit and personnel woman so yeah, they aren't mad at me. Yeah, they love what I will do
when you really
want to show the world
the law I
want to show the 100 America who wore a suit. So the law

America, below him in a sheet long of regime similar manner
in the law her woman it could haul your son on Island and maybe your hand Edina Armand also you It was so little sleep
laughing so loud and humid in the more humid coma so late either even our
neighbor our Hema in Canada Majeed Allahumma Burdick garden

respective listeners salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
The title of today's talk is capitalize on five before five
this is actually
the thought of sort of la sala de la vida he was suddenly
related by mom hacking to LA Haley is almost a duck and by others
from see them Abdullah hit us up the law
was saying is that the prophets in the law it was setting them set someone wants advising them
if then him some problems.
Shabaab Boko Haram, it
was the head of the subcommittee
working on a couple of *ery for
a couple of months.
So I'm delighted not bad. So the alarm assays at once profits in the law while he was in was advising someone a man. He said to him,
capitalize on five,
before five. So these aren't actually the words of the sort of law, some of the law it was selling them if then comes
sees five before five capitalism five before five.
Your youth before your old age
you'll have health before your sickness,
your wealth, before your poverty
your opportunity before your preoccupation
and your life before your death.
So the title is actually based on the beginning words of the heady in which for sort of lots of alarm, it was essays capitalise on five before five.
Now the Hadeeth mainly speaks about
time, if we look at all five of these things, youth before old age
and the fourth one, the first one youth before old age, the fourth one, you're freed.
Before your preoccupation,
your opportunity before your preoccupation and the fifth one and final one, your life before your death.
All three of these the other two are your health before your sickness and your wealth before your poverty. So apart from these two, the first one, the fourth one and the fifth one three of these five are all relate relate to youth life time, opportunity. Mainly time.
Our life is made up of a number of
We are all destined to live for a number of years, months weeks.
days, hours, minutes and seconds.
Any moment hustle and bustle to learn really one of the wisest, the most eloquent scholars of the earliest generation.
He phrased it beautifully. He said you are in the mountains that much more.
You are but a collection of days.
For each day that passes, part of you disappears.
So you are but a collection of days for each day that passes part of you disappears
So, we have very limited time
our limited time on earth is made up of our
life our youth our free time
what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has told us repeatedly in various howdy
is a we should appreciate and value this time and not let it go to waste in any way whatsoever.
last panel with the other C's thought of it in NASA his fear of letting
my team in victim rob the market in less than a row boom boom. Law Heaton
law says mankind mankind's reckoning has drawn there
they are heedless
in neglect they aren't paying any attention
my at the human victory mirror up behemoth known need admonition or no knee reminder comes to them from their Lord except that he lists them are all more than you know boom they listen to it or they receive it playfully.
law here boo boo whilst Our hearts are distract.
So the last panel with the other sends remind us warning
signs repeatedly and yet we don't pay much attention. If and
and throughout the Quran, Allah reminds us again and again. So when the last panel with Allah says if terrible in nursery sir boom
boom that mankind's reckoning has drawn near and yet they turn away in heedlessness and neglect the sort of loss and the love it was seldom explained this beautifully.
He said if the robot is such
an ally actually uses that phrase as well in another verse of the Quran if the robot is sad one shot can come. The hour has drawn me
so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said you cannot have a dishonor
The hour has drawn near
when I use that mouse
what is that one Amina la la vida, that the our has drawn near and yet people are only becoming increasingly eager for the world
and they are only becoming more and more distant from Allah.
So instead of turning away from the dunya and to Allah subhanahu wa tada in this Hadeeth, led by mom hacking, to learn in a again the same author in Islam stir from Abdullah little little league alarm the profit side of the law, it seldom says thought about this Sara would I is that nurse, Allah dunya La la la la la la la gorda. The hour has drawn near and yet, people are only becoming increasingly eager for the dunya I'm only becoming more and more distant from Allah.
So this hadith beatifully explains a verse they complement each other. This is our reality. last parameter Allah has told us a subtle lesson the line equals syllabus told us
we have limited time.
And we won't be able to appreciate this now.
And in light of the Hadeeth some of the olema phrased it beautifully. They said that
only four people
appreciate and value
or only four people appreciate the value of fourth
only the old can appreciate the value of use.
Only the poor
can appreciate the value of wealth.
Only the sick
and the ones suffering a calamity
can appreciate the value of good health.
And the fourth one is rather surprising.
All amazed to say that only the dead can appreciate life.
And I say it's surprising because we may well ask that
how can the dead appreciate life?
Well, that tells us
but after death,
at the approach of death,
people will plead with law to return them to life.
The human motorcar Rob Bell, Jerome Langley, and FEMA doc Kanda in her kanemoto omura era yo yo bathroom, Allah says, Until when death comes to one of them. He says, Oh, my Lord, return me to life.
maybe perhaps I may be able to, I may be able to do some good in the life that I've left behind. Law says never.
This is just a word that he will utter.
But he won't be returned back to the beginning of his life or backwards in any way. Rather,
this is just a word that he will utter. And beyond that, there is the life of Bursa between his death, and between the day that the Shabbat that they shall be resurrect.
There are other verses as well and not just at the time of death, but in the UK,
in a number of verses last holders that various people were pleased with the last panel with all with the angels, to return them to life. So that they can make amends, they can change, they can do things differently.
But last panel with the other
will not allow that for anyone. So this is why the dilemma say only the dead appreciate life. And that can only be understood in the context of these verses.
So whether we look at youth whether we look at life in general or whether we look at free time and opportunity, all of these are to do with time. And that's what we are we've just the collection of time. Whether you
evaluate it in days, months, hours, years weeks, we have a limited amount of time on
and last time is irretrievable. And time is a sign from Allah. It's a gift from law requires appreciation or acknowledgement, and thanks and gratitude to Allah so much. It's actually a sign one of the most telling things throughout the Quran. Allah swears by time in many places many verses, in fact most of the famous salts that we know that most people know by heart towards the end of the Quran, Allah repeatedly swears by
one lady they all share one hearty their agenda by the Knights I won't translate all of them because it'll take too long but by the night and by the day, or Shamsi will know how well comedy that are how when the hottie that Allah will lady they assure her again in this set of verses by the sun and the moon by the knights and by the day well we'll leave it either cetera Bye, the mid morning brightness By the mid morning sun
and by the Knights will last in Sun and a few hos by time
for that symbol to shift up or lady or mouse up well I'm sorry that this
by the break by the shafique which is actually the Twilight and by the mount
and by the moon again.
So, and again there are many of the verses in all of these verses last panel with the Anna repeatedly swears by time by the instrument by time itself such as well as by time or by the instruments of time that Allah has created for them.
calculation, the sun the moon the night the day
the crack of dawn Twilight crack of dawn will fetch it really early Nash will shift a will What? will later either is healthy then someone will live eh. And that's a very telling verse a lot again swears by
the crack of dawn morning.
by the odd in the evening
by the night again.
And then lassies houfy vertical awesome Olivia, ah that is there an oath in these verses for one of intelligence.
This is why the ruler Massey if you are unable to appreciate the beauty of these verses, or any of the parables and the similar to that last struck in the Quran, then do not question the Quran itself rather question your intelligence, because the last panel with honors is only the intelligence only the wise, only those who have sent will be able to understand and appreciate these parables and the similar cheats mentioned in the book. And again, when Allah swears by all the things, he says, Is there an oath in these for someone who possesses intelligence. So Allah swears by time again and again throughout the quarter. So it's a sign of a last panel with the honor it's a gift of Allah
will lead the Jalan needle one of the hardest thing for the
last panel with Allah sees it as he Allah was made the night and the day
such that they succeed each the night follows the day the day follows
limit or the year that the shockula for one who wishes to take heed, be admonished. And for one who intends crashed.
If someone truly appreciates this gift of a last panel with their honor, they will be grateful.
And that's why again, the verse or minerality journal in the common later on hard on it the school fee who would adopt a woman when I look into school, the last law says and it is of His mercy that he has created the night and the day for you.
So that in the nights that the school fee, in the night you may rest and will it the home and family and in the day you may seek of His grace and bounce when you come to school and so that you may be grateful.
So gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala for the gift of time, for the gift of days and not for the gift of life, for the gift of opportunity is an obligation on the believes. And part of that gratitude isn't that we just express our shock and gratitude verbally by saying and handling that excetera. Rather, we should express gratitude.
By action by deed, not just verbally and gratitude is of different forms. A person can express their gratitude and show appreciation and say thanks simply verbally.
But the real gratitude is by deed.
If you give someone a gift,
they may say 1000 thank yous to you on the spot, which may momentarily please. But how would you feel if as soon as you turned around, you later learn through someone else or through other means that they actually
disposed of your gift or discarded it? Or even if they didn't dispose of it? They merely put it to one side, ignored it neglected it never used it again. How would you feel?
gratitude isn't just variable.
If you purchased a gift for someone,
the gift is of a certain age.
If it's flowers, they are to be placed in a good spot, looked at appreciate if it's an item. It's meant to be used in a good way to remind the person
if a person says thank you verbally, but then either discards the gift, neglects it, puts it to one side or even disposes of it or worse abuses it and does not use it in the manner or for the purpose that you gave it to them. How would we fix
Is that gratitude regardless of what we said at the beginning, regardless of the verbal, thank yous. Similarly, the last panel who would add as gifts to us, part of our shocker and gratitude to LA for these gifts is not just to say Alhamdulillah repeatedly, but it's also to use the gifts in the manner that Allah Subhana Allah expects of us.
Not to be ignored, not to be neglected, not to be discarded, not to be disposed of, and most not to be wasted, and most importantly, not to be abused.
to abuse the gift of a last panel who would honor
to abuse the benefactor through his gifts.
That is the greatest insight.
So part of that gratitude is to appreciate and value time to use it in the manner that a lot of last panel with Allah expects of us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us and this is why
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reminds us in this heading, that you've been in some some problems.
capitalize on five before.
the word capitalize it's my translation of the word
is Penny means
seize the opportunity. In fact, there is my opinion there is no better translation than the word capitalize.
capitalize on five things before
and it's a very commercial word.
capitalize on but throughout the world and the last word that I use as commercial language to help us understand.
Yeah, your levena Armand de la commodity Jarrah Tintin, je caminada Aleem O believers should not show you at the jar a trend that will deliver you from the fire in the lush dot amin and Mina and for something
in the gym, indeed last purchased the lives and the wealth of the believers in return that for them shall be genuine.
So Allah uses commercial language
from Arabic to Java to Houma, Cambodian, speaking of the misguided people, Allah subhanho wa Taala say is that trade was not profitable, and they were not guided.
So Allah, like
our relationship with the last panel, in fact,
in the levina, your value, value value on a la de la falta ad him those who pledge their allegiance to address in the province of alarm it seldom, in reality, they are pledging their allegiance to Allah. Allahu phulka ed molars hand is above their ears and
other verses as well that speak of the barrier between Allah and His creation, between Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his followers. The word bear
comes from the same root letters. And it's very closely related. In fact, it's closely related to the word Bayer. So Bayer means trade. And Bayer means a pledge. And the reason they are related and in fact,
in the Bayer, why does the last panel with their honor speak of
the hand? And traditionally the Arabs when they would give the beggar? How would the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accept the beer by hand?
Because that marks an agreement, it's a sealing of the deal. So whether the deal is a contract, whether or whether whether the contract is over relationship or whether the contract is of a purchase and sale, it's a contract. And traditionally, there were no receipts. So how would people seal the deal, it was done with a handshake. So whether it's beer trade, hand on hand, whether it's a pledge, it's hand on hand.
So throughout the last panel with Anna uses commercial language, because that's the language that we understand profit, loss,
gain loss, sort of last panel with data tells us
what he wishes to say in those terms.
soula salovaara legal system tells us exactly the same.
So in this head is telling him some problems, capitalism five before and another Hadeeth, which is very closely related.
And it's recorded by mojari rappeler he and he, in his city and by others, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, net Ramadan boom Fie him are cathedra millionaires are sick of the one for all. There are two gifts to blessings of Allah, in which many people are at a loss. Mas boon means someone who suffers a financial loss.
One of the
one of the principles in Islamic Finance, which often
distinguishes between halal and haram
is that there shouldn't be any urban fish orlimar say there shouldn't be any urban fish, which means severe loss, unbearable loss.
And I elaborated on this when I was commenting on the table on the ahaadeeth. Have you read the book of transactions from say he will bill hardy many years ago, some of you may have been present then and may recall. And I mentioned that principle then in the light of a number of Howdy, that one of the things that governs the prohibition or the permissibility of financial dealings and transact transactions is the principle of loving for cash, meaning severe and bearable loss. And that's what it means it doesn't just mean a loss, it means a very serious loss, financial loss, monetary loss. So here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says exactly the same thing. Now in the name of Dan
Warren and FEMA Cathedral Minh and NASS, there are two blessings of Allah, in which many people suffer a horrible, meaning they suffer a monetary financial loss. In reality, it's not some monetary loss. But that's a language that the province of Allied ecosystems uses. There are two blessings of a line which many people suffer a great loss, truly an unbearable loss. And the two blessings are a separate one for
good health, and time and free opportunities.
So the language of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, indeed, is a commercial one here. If the name comes from public humps, the Arab especially the rage of Mecca, they were traders. And this was their language. So it was the perfect language to help them understand and it's human nature.
We are so conscious of financial loss of the rights paying the right price, never overpay.
And that's why we check prices. We hunt for bargains,
we ensure that we do not pay a penny more than we need.
We will undergo certain difficulties, we will actually spend more time
in order to purchase something at a distance.
If it means that we get it cheap, we're willing to spend more time you may even walk there. Just because it may be a few pennies or a few pounds cheap.
Because that's how much we value.
Gain and profit in wealth. And that's how much we fear,
loss in profits in wealth.
But once about a time, wealth comes and goes.
The rich become poor, the poor become rich, and there are many opportunities.
a lot of the time we have excess wealth.
But unlike most of the things that is one thing which is irretrievable, which once lost,
no strength, no power, even combined in the universe can retrieve that last thing. And that's time. Every second that passes is truly irretrievable.
It will never come again.
And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reminds us again and again in different words, seize the opportunity. Don't waste time.
Don't turn away,
don't suffer a loss. At least when it comes to time and opportunity. And in this head he has been in some some problems.
capitalize on five before for the first one, say Shabaab aka tabla harmonic, your youth, before your old age.
Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah has given us health, strength
and a person, man all in their youth, they reach the peak of their intelligence, their senses, their faculties, their physical strength, their abilities.
This is a peek in the prime of their life of their youth.
And this is why on your
last panel we
will question a person about their life and their youth. Ma'am fit in with your toddler Haley relates with Ethan his son and so delivers from 7am to light and I'm sure there'll be a lot. Hussein's love at the zoo look other more than a Yeoman. The ama demon ended up in Darby after you saw the uncollapse.
FEMA now, wind Shabaab, FEMA oblah. One Mad Men in the Civil War FEMA and
well my other army the FEMA ID,
the light blue so the alarm says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a man's foot
will not shift from before Allah on the day of reckoning on the Day of Resurrection, until he has been questioned about five things like the Zulu movement, or the Yeoman, the AMA demon endora.
A man's foot, the foot of the son of Adam will not shift from before Allah on the day of resurrection Until he has been questioned about things. And they are one
his age and
FEMA blah, FEMA afnor his age? Where did he
spend a while away his age? The number two wearing Shabaab
and his youth
Where did he wile away his youth female?
Number three is wealth. Where did he acquire it? before? How did he dispense of it? And number five, everything that he learned
how did he act?
Did he act?
Now the thing that concerns us is the first
and the surprising thing this Hadeeth is at the lightening so there'll be a lovely quote and muscle loss on the line he will send him says that last panel with Anna will ask him number one about his age. So he'll be questioned about his whole life. But then when Chabad he will be questioned again about his youth.
this is like I can't imagine you are being audited, you have a general inquiry about all of your transactions. And then the accountant pulls out a file and focuses specifically on that one particular file for a particular period in excruciating detail.
Because that will be your make or your break,
that will make your break. So on your piano, every one of us will be questioned in general about our whole life. But then then again specifically and in great excruciating detail, we will be questioned about how were you
sort of last panel with Allah gives has given all of us these faculties, these abilities, the senses, the strength, this knowledge and understanding,
and allow will question as about this gift.
But what did you do with it? How did you spend it?
Many of us may think that
in fact, there is a common
misconception that piety,
conscientiousness, good deeds, prayer, all of these things
After the old
so once you become old Now is the time to learn to earn
to enjoy oneself to live life
all these things will come late.
But that's a gross misconception of reality of life of what the poor and what the Hadees say.
as sort of la sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam says in a very beautiful athletes by mama widow dishonor,
from Satan, who calls for the alarm who says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the trophy cliche
Illa II Ahmed
And what's the other dollar that means don't ever is the opposite of agile, which means hastiness rashness.
So one is when we rush into something, we are hasty, we are overeager overzealous, we had we hurt ourselves headlong into that thing.
The opposite is
to other means, patience, for parents forbearance, deliberation.
Proceeding slowly, caution, prudence, this is what I mean. So forbearance and patience, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, a thought other, thought other, for parents patience, deliberation. deliberation, should be in his is in everything Illa except for our hero, in the deeds of the hereafter. When it comes to the deeds of the Hereafter,
there should be no deliberation,
and a light on the heavy, there's almost the opposite of what we think.
that is haste
and a total lack of patience, and a rush into all the affairs of the dunya. But there is patience, and deliberation, and postponing in the affairs of the
whereas the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, a complete opposite of a condition in our family. But deliberation isn't everything, except
in the deeds of the hereafter. And another idea.
That means the same as an AA. And now means patience, forbearance, deliberation, all of that comes from Allah. And haste comes from shaper.
when it comes to the affairs of the architect, this idea that it's okay we can always turn to Allah later.
We can do it later on in life in old age, and in facts, at times. This is the message that we give ourselves and we give others a last panel with Allah tells us otherwise. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us otherwise. Allah says in the Quran, what an evil you know
what a slim, mean public and yet the acuminata
that turn to Allah, turn to your Lord and submit
before punishment before then you will not be assisted. And remember, punishment can be in any form, by law,
a misfortune or calamity
is a form of ABA.
What doesn't fit not allowed to see even Latina woman come house
and fear loss Azan reversal or ambush and fear of
meaning and other
not only before the guilty and the criminal amongst you.
The reason I mentioned that verse is that fitna is a form of other
Bala misfortune, calamity are all a form of punishment form of ABA. So what are the meanings of this versus what an evil you know become Muslim all of whom have a common pattern. Some that
Turn to your Lord and submit to Him before punishments before she before either before she, that or that could indeed be a divine other from Allah. Or it could it could even be an adverb in the form of fitna and in the form of trial and tribulation. And we we just, we know that many of us neglect the last panel with data and neglect our GT, until a calamity before
and once a calamity befalls us, we tend to have
bad times it may be too late. Because
if we think that
we can wait, we have the luxury of time, we have the luxury of waiting, and we are totally wrong. One of the dangers is that as time passes,
it's the law of the universe. It's the law of the physical universe, it's law of the spiritual universe, the law of the Spirit, the law of the physical universes, as time passes, things go into reverse, things deteriorate,
they fall into decline and decay.
It's a rule of the physical universe, nothing survives the passage of time, even metals,
what happens to sturdy steel, and metals
is what happens, rust,
rust accumulates and campus which is corrosive, and it destroys these these steady metals. That's the law of the physical universe, time always moves ahead. And as it moves ahead, that is always change. In fact, as I mentioned in the last
scientists, when they define time Now, one of the most widely accepted theories of the definition of time, what exactly is Time, time isn't an entity in itself. Time is merely the marker of change. That's what time is. So when something shifts from one state to another, that small, almost imperceptible shift of change from one state to another, that time.
And when it shifts from one state to another, when that change overcomes every single atom, every single thing, is the change for the better. Or is it for the worse? Does it go up or go down? The Law of the universe is change is always in decline. Things decay, they deteriorate, they decline.
That's the law of the physical universe. The law of the spiritual universe is no different.
Man is never in a state of inertia where nothing happens. Man is always moving even spiritually.
And unless he enforces that rise, man can never rise spiritually. He's always fall in slack in the physical universe. If you want to climb up.
You have to make an effort.
And luckily, at least in the physical universe, if you're not climbing up, you're not at least going down in the spiritual universe. If you're not climbing up, you will be going down and alas crown hall with the other tells us in the corner. well as in Santa Luffy office. By time indeed man is in a state of great loss.
Always going what Dena was a Tony will do the scene in a mean holopainen insanity accent the Queen for Maradona, who is philosophically
by the fig and the OG.
This is a reference to Jerusalem
by the family Alia
and by Mount Sinai, and by the secure city, Mecca. So Allah swears by beaten this Jerusalem laspeyres by Mount Sinai law swears by Makkah.
Having swarmed by these three places where
the prophets walked, the angels descended, and the revelation of Allah came down to these prophets Alas, varying value three places sees lack of Harlequin insanity acid at the whim indeed we have created man in the best mold fukumura that now is filosofi lien
Then we reduced him to the lowest of the low
in another verse and um yet he didn't Medina amon de shabu decorilla Manasa liminal hoc. What are you gonna do to Nikita, Pablo fatahna la himal Ahmed focus on Aruba homework theorem and who for whom Allah says has the time not yet come for the believers, that their hearts soften and submit to the remembrance of Allah hunter that truth which has come down to them and that they do not become like those who came before them. What happened to them
for thought Allah Allah He will emit Time passed long over them, focus on them so their hearts became hard.
What Cathedral minimum first one and many of them are sinful in another verse, color, but around our other Blue Beam can see goon May
the rest of the sins that they used to commit gathered over their hearts. And in the prophets alarm it was seldom explains this, this verse of the Koran, in a hadith in which he says, whenever a man commits a sin
adopts a blemish appears on his heart, a spot appears on his heart.
If he repents, and turns to Allah, then that spot is removed and his heart has published the words of the head etha Sokolov elbow, His heart is polished.
But if he does not repent, then the blemish the spot remains, and his heart continues to collect blemishes and spots. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually says in the Hadith, this is that rust, which Allah mentions in the verse, gullible or wrong, will be a boon. Nay, the rest of the sins that they committed gathered over their hearts, gathered on their hands. What do all of these verses tell us, especially the first three, when asked what the unmet need in learning, all of them tell us that with the passage of time, hearts become hard. People sink to being the lowest of the low, we are in a constant perpetual state of great loss. And in all of these men doesn't have to
do anything. You don't have to be sitting all the time to become worse.
That's why I said we think that we have the luxury of time that as I get older thing, I'll become wiser. I'll become, hopefully, more spiritual. Now. In fact, in athletes by Manoir de la la Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says, Yuk buruma Adam, wake up copper America's man.
man grows old
and two things grow with him.
Man grows and two things grow with him. And while the two things that grow with age, man,
meaning the love of wealth, and the desire for a long life.
So man does not necessarily become holy and more spiritual or better with the passage of time. The great danger is that with the passage of time, rust will gather.
sinks and declines and deteriorate in their spiritual states. And the only way of ensuring that of arresting that decline of preventing that loss that law speaks of in these verses is what he mentions in both sort of the last one sort of the theme. What does he say?
by time man is in the state of great loss, except, and sort of thing we have created man in the most beautiful mold and then we have reduced him to the lowest of the low except, and what are the exceptions in both suits, inland livina, Armand awami lasagna, except for those who believe and who do good deeds. So this is the time now, not old age, not late.
In fact, the danger is that we may become rusty Krieg,
worse, stubborn, more set in our ways.
I was once speaking to a psychiatrist.
And he said to me that I saw a patient today
and she was she's 75 years.
and I was staring at her
and listen to her speak.
And all I could see was a 15 year old girl.
Same language the same, obviously, underlying language, same for same ambition, same,
And then he explained to me that the only difference is
that she no longer has the physical strength or the ability or the opportunity of the 15 year old. Otherwise, even at the age of 75.
I could still see the 15 year old child
I'm only quote
what that tells us, we know anyway, that with time,
we may become frail, and we
may not have the strength.
Our minds and bodies may no longer have that agility or ability. But it does not mean that the knifes has become wiser or holy.
The neffs remains young, throughout. And that's what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, Man grows old. And two things grow with him.
The level of wealth and the level of age, the level of a long life.
So we don't have that luxury of waiting for old age, the sort of last alarm our legal system says the very first thing if the name comes from a couple of humps, capitalism five before five. The first one is Shabaab Boko Haram in your youth before your old age.
on your move,
some people will be told, I went to my medical monitor that girl fee him and
did not give you enough age
who should have taken heed would have taken me in that age. I mean, did we not give you sufficient age in which a person could have become wise a person could have learned could have taken heed could have realized?
Did we not give you enough of an age on a normal medical made to the coffee
community and the warm up country.
Now obviously the Warner
there are two interpretations to the word Warner here. One is clearly a sort of La Silla love it.
But a number of Sahaba of the alarm in the streets have defined the warning not as being only Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, but sheep meaning whitehair which are a community and the Warner came to you, meaning white hair. This is why in a hoodie played by Mario De La, Si su de la sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam says, If Allah subhanaw taala eliminating.
Indeed, Allah has exhausted his excuse.
by delaying a person till the age of 60 years, the meaning of the law in a way, it's a very unique Arabic phrase.
In Arabic, refers to when you give someone chance upon chance, chance after chance.
Until you can no longer give them any more chances.
you've exhausted all your excuses, you've made every excuse for them. You've given them every row though you've given them every excuse you've given them every opportunity to change.
you've run out of your patience.
You have made every excuse for them.
You now can no longer do anything for
you've exhausted everything.
It's not possible for you to give them any further opportunities any further chances.
is the meaning of Arabic in Arabic. And of course some of these don't apply to our last panel with Anna but fasudil la sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam says,
Indeed, Allah has exhausted
Allah has exhausted his chances
with someone whom he has delayed to the age of 60 years, and he actually mentioned this in Well, the
last panel with their other SES, did we not give you that age? Now?
The older man mentioned this heavy
sums, but there's a difference of opinion. That what is the age in which Allah subhanho wa Taala other?
has given someone enough of a chance?
Is it the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam where he says
there's a difference. The Hadith doesn't speak about when a person should realize
that he speaks about someone who's had their last chance. And that last chance is at the age of 60. In the heavy, it doesn't mean that that's when they should realize, what they have, he says is that Allah has exhausted all chances and opportunities and excuses for that person. If by the age of 60, they don't realize they will never realize.
But when should a person realize when is that age that Allah refers to in the Quran? When he says, oh, and Mr. Miracle made that coffee him into that car, should we did we not give you enough of an age that someone who would have taped should have taken heed would have taken heed, the two are different. One is the exhaustion of all chances. One is that age by which a person should come to their senses. So when is that age when a person should come to their sense has been referred to in the letters. Of course, they might have mentioned different ages, some have said 60 Some have said 40 Some said 30
as I've mentioned before, the beautiful eloquent wise and noble, great grandson of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the son of Hussein Little League of Lahore and your mom it even Hussein Zina Abbey, Dean of the law firm.
He would say that the age by which a person should realize and come to their senses, which Allah refers to in this verse, that did not give you enough of an age by which or in which someone who would have taken heed should have taken the Imam and even her saying zainul Abbey dean of the alarm, the grand son of Fatima out of the alarm on her the son of Hussein will the law of war and the great grandson of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to say that age is 70
being referred to in the Quran 70
so youth is right.
And Amanda Hardy and others all relate to a very beautiful lady
Abu huraira de la and who says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
so back to New Zealand
there are seven law the exalted we'll get, we'll give it shade, we give a place in his shade on the day when there shall be no shade except tissue.
And amongst those seven
The second one is
your mom Adam was born Misha a fever
just imagine the first one the second one, a young man who grew up in the ibadah.
as a profit some love it some savings.
capitalize on five before five your youth before you're old.
we'll set up the Sonic
and your health before your illness.
Before illness strikes.
Do what you have to before illness strikes you
appreciate some value use your good health
and use it in the best way
as the prophets of Allah
hidey ho Selim said in the near modern boom, FEMA Cathedral, Minh and NASA settle for all. There are two blessings of law in which many people are at a loss, a great loss, health and free time.
And that's all that matters matter of said only the sick, appreciate good health
when we are fit and healthy, pay no attention whatsoever.
Just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has reminded us to visit the graves because they remind us of death. And in one Hadeeth oxido vichara hurt them in the middle of that excessively remember the demolisher of all pleasures meaning death.
We have been encouraged to attend the genomes, we have been
encouraged to attend funerals, we have been encouraged to visit the sick to do ear. And one of the wisdom of visiting the ill and the sick is that we are able to appreciate the good health that loss given us, we are able to see that we will also end up being like them at some stage. There's no running away from it. last season's sort of DRC woman Norman milonakis. So Phil Hulk, have an Iron Maiden and he ever we give age, we reverse and flip him in creation. Do they not understand?
We may look handsome, healthy and fit now, as we all believe of ourselves.
with age as I was mentioning, the law of the universe is that with the passing of time that is deterioration, physical and spiritual.
So as we age losses, we reverse them we flip them in creation of a norm, do they not understand we will suffer our bodies will fail.
I went see an optician
we were discussing people
having to wear reading glasses at the age of 45.
or the clear majority of people
and whilst explaining that he said to me that I want to read that the human body is not designed to function after the age of 40. He actually begins breaking down
at the human body is not designed
to function after the age of 40 he actually begins breaking down. So I said to him,
in the case of Phil how awful I am.
I read the verse to him and then I explained it to him that whoever we give age, we reverse him and flip him in creation. Do they not understand? So that's one of the wisdoms of visiting the sick when we see them.
We should be reminded that one day they were like hers and one day we shall become my
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says and I think categorically before I used to prevent you from visiting the graves, but now visit so he encouraged us to visit the graves. And what's our door when we visit the graves as salaam aleikum datacomm Manny Medina insha Allah Allahu antamina for
that salaam aleikum,
our place of the believing people.
immediately thereafter we say we're in insha Allah we comply and we insha Allah will be joining
You are our predecessors and we are your followers.
We are reminded about this when we attend funerals, visit the graveyards, we should visit the sick.
So that we are reminded of our reality, the reality of life of our destiny, our future, how they will once likers and how we will one day become
and hopefully this May, Golders and encourages and inspires to appreciating our youth now, our health now, as a province of the love it says capitalize on your health before you're
number three. Well in our
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says appreciate your independence.
Before your dependence,
your wealth before your poverty.
Now some of us may IE
we should consider ourselves rich.
If you have food before you
and you are able to sleep
and you have clothes that protect you from the elements, and that cover your privacy, you are rich.
Unfortunately, human nature, human nature is that we always consider ourselves to be poor.
We are always wailing and lamenting our poverty. No matter how rich we are.
The one with a steady job, steady income savings in their account, a house a car still considers himself poor.
The Millionaire still considers himself poor, the multimillionaire considers himself poor.
And why as Allah says in the Quran, a sheath only at the common factor of a Moroccan
shaped bomb threatens you with poverty, that fear of poverty drives us, and we never consider ourselves rich enough.
So maybe the mid May, initially may not make sense to is that within a couple of *ery
that value and capitalize on your wealth now,
before your poverty, you may truly become poor tomorrow. If you have wealth now, use it wisely. Use it in the obedience of
use it in a way that benefits you.
Especially in relation to that.
We never think of ourselves as being rich. That's human nature. Amanda Hardy, and others all relate to her the from Abdullah him as of April the alarm, who said on the member, that I would hear Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, lo and Nibbana as to where the men that have been eternia will or the Athenian.
Will I assume the gel from the Adam in the Torah, to la vida, de su de la salle de la Heidi who would say I'm delighted user base as he would say, If man was given a valley filled with gold, he would still desire a second, if he was given a second Valley filled with gold, he would still desire a third, and nothing fills a cavity and vacuum in men, except the dust of the earth. And Allah will relent to one to whom he does rely a lot only terms in acceptance to interest.
Only if log if someone that they'll feed them the ability will they come to this realization otherwise human nature, that he will always want more. A value full of gold is not enough. A second is needed. If a second is given, he or she will desire a third. So we never consider ourselves rich. We're always poor, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says no, in reality, you are rich.
And make use of that wealth. Appreciate capitalism.
That's fine. The verse in sort of them one afternoon towards the end, Allah Subhana Allah Allah tells us
yeah, you have the Dena Amanullah to come on welcome Allah Allah.
are believers. Do not let your wealth or your riches literally your riches, do not let your riches
nor your children distract you from the remembrance of Allah.
Allah, Allah, the whole hassle
and whoever is guilty of this, then these are the losers.
What unfit woman models are gonna come in public
and spend that which we have given you. before death comes to winner for your pool. Then at the time of death, he says
below the heartening Gillian corrib Oh my Lord, give me some rest bites give me some delay just for a short while. Why for a sub duck welcome Minnesota hain. So that I may give in charity and be of the pious
one in your offset alertness and either
low or never the delay
The time of a person when it comes.
So just like the other verse at the time of death, we will want to come back, we will be two legs. And in this verse Allah tells us we will want to come back specifically to spend in the way of a land given.
And that's why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says you should give him the best of charities you should give in charity when
when you are healthy,
and you are greed,
you are greedy for wealth, you are healthy, if you can use that wealth, this is the best time for you to give in southern given.
When you are healthy, when you are greedy, you hope for more wealth, and you fear poverty.
Give now not later, he says it so beautifully. When
you come close to your death, then you begin to say, oh, give this wealth to such and such a person, give this wealth to such and such a person, give this to foreigner give this to foreigner and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, What can any foreigner when he has already become when it was already for such and such repairs?
Ie you were simply saving it throughout your life for the other person. It doesn't belong to you unless you spend it. If you have wealth and you don't spend it doesn't belong to me, it could belong to anyone. You're merely looking after it, you are the one losing sleep over it.
And looking after it, in trust for others.
It only belongs to you if you've spent it and used it. And you've been strengthened and nourished or closed by as, as the understanding and the meaning of many of their hobbies which I won't go into in any detail now. So the profits of the learning has encouraged us to spend in the way of Allah before death. Allah tells us in the verses of Psalm one f bomb, which we regularly here in Jamal Salah spent before death comes upon.
So we may not think we are rich now. But in reality we are appreciate and value and capitalize on your wealth now, before your poverty on your independence now before your dependents. That's a third one and the fourth one, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says well for our public, capitalize on your free time before your preoccupation.
time is money.
We always think we're too busy. We've got no time. Everyone's always complaining no time, no time, no time, a lot but there's no Baraka in time. This is one of the signs of the hour.
Remember, Hardy and others all relate to head even which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions a few signs of Yama of the final hour. The first one in all of these ahaadeeth Is it the audibles is a man time machine?
Time will shrink. Any man humble is Muslim than a man tell me the law in the sun and both relate that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, time will shrink so much so
that a year will become like a month a month will become like a jumar meaning a week and the Juma has meaning a week will become like a day
or will be like a day so a year will be like a month a month will be like a gym or meaning a week a gym or meaning a week will be like a day, a day will be like an hour and an hour will be like and the rest of the Hadeeth are
the Arabs they would
be we used to have these torches
wicks large wicks or torches made with the dry leaves of palm trees. So they would rock and burn them. So a single leaf, a single dry leaf of a palm tree would burn very quickly.
So the wording of the Hadeeth is and an hour will be like the burning of a leaf.
So how long it takes for a crackling dry leaf to burn at profits. sallallahu Sallam says an hour of the day will be like
and that will be towards your hands panela we can see today there's no there's hardly any Baraka in time. We have all the facilities and amenities. We have cars, we have modern transport in our homes. We have all the appliances, all the facilities, and yet we complain of no time
and we have physical
proof of this.
But there is there was a Baraka in the time of those who came before.
I've mentioned this on a number of occasions, less someone says that How is that possible? Time is relative. Ask Einstein.
Time is relative. And Allah subhanho wa Taala puts Baraka in the time of those whom he wishes.
Imagine even a Jedi the Baba de la jolla scholar who died in 1011. Sorry, in 310 hijiri.
His students, they calculated the number of pages that he had written in his life.
And it was a stupendous number.
Your mom Jamal Dina, so UT Rahim Allah scholar who died in 911 hingedly. He wrote at the feet of the
Jelani, well, the sea, which is half of Jelani students in the room, I will know this,
his teacher had written at the seat of the
ma'am Jelena Dean, and
his name was also gela. So he's written at the seat of the poor.
But counter intuitively, he had started his seed from Sudoku guff till the end of the quarter. So he did the second half first. And his idea was to do that the seed in as concise a manner as possible, no detail, using as few words as possible. Explain the verses of the Quran in order to provide a summary of that the seed of that whole amount of before is a very difficult task. Extremely difficult. One is someone's free, he has a verse of the Quran elaborate on it, relying on earlier sources, and the other is right commentary of the Quran. Be as concise and as brief as possible for each
verse, in as few words as possible, that is a difficult task. So when he completed the half of the or earns the seed, ie the second half, unfortunately, he passed away. His students, Imam gelada, Dino sooty, Remo, lozman, was also July, he made an undertaking that I will write the remaining half of the forum, but he still have to start from the beginning till sort of Raghav I will do the first half of the forum in order to complete my teachers have seen and I will do it exactly as he did it. Now, that's a double undertaking, not only will I do it,
but I will follow his pattern in his footsteps and try to make it as close to his seat as possible.
Now, that's, that's extremely difficult, living in Egypt in the 10th Hijri century, a few centuries ago, writing with pen and ink on parchment on rough paper.
He completed and he This is just one of his books. He completed that the seed
of half of the Quran in 40 days
40. Most of the demand students can't study it in 40 days.
And these are live examples.
We are unable to read the books of these are all ama
as a team in the same amount of time that they were able to write them by hand.
A lot of places Baraka in the time of those whom he wishes.
Imam Bukhari would complete 44 arms in the Ramadan
Imam, Shafi Imam or any foreigner who would complete 64 and
some people say How is that possible again Baraka truly Baraka today we have all the facilities and yet people complain no time, no time whatsoever. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that
So, we think that we will have free time later. Now, the truth is, nobody has time we have limited time we have to prioritize.
We have to prioritize.
And what the prophet sallallahu Sallam says, is that give priority to your deen to your to your Lord, to your alpha. So capitalize on your free time now before your preoccupation.
Everyone thinks I'll be free later, I'll be free later.
We always make our plans contingent. And I've seen this throughout the years helping key
we all think when we're young
No insha Allah let me just get through school, just get through college. Just get through university and finish my degree. Let me finish my apprenticeship. When I get married when I get a house when I get settled down, when the children are settled, and this when when when when never stops until death comes upon us. It never stops.
And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he won't he once drew a figure in the sand with a stick, he drew a box.
And he then drew a long line,
intersecting the box. Throughout, he drew, there was a box, he drew a line beginning well before the box straight through the box.
And then to the side, he drew further lines.
And then the province in the love it was sent him said, this is man
and these lungs
these are the calamities that befall him.
If they do not finish him,
then he pointed to the box.
Then this will finish him meaning death.
But his line began before the box and continues after the box, in reference to his journey, his dreams, his hope, his ambitions, his aspirations.
So you can have a look at us a vehicle the alarm?
He would sing a poet
when he moves to Medina, after the hedger. He was overcome by fever because Medina was humid. So he would sadita Mohan
Chateau de la hora, and he says that when he was overcome by fever, he feared death
and he would recite the following couplets.
Good numarray Musa bounty earlywood moto ad nominee shiraki nearly every man rises in the morning amongst his family, meaning happily amongst this family will moto dynamin shiraki merrily even though death is closer to him than the strap of his sandal,
When moto ignem and sheer aachener every man rises hackley amongst this family, even though death is closer to him than this strap officer. So, we think we are preoccupied now. In reality, we are free now. We will be preoccupied late. And all the we make plans contingent. So we say I'll do this when this ends, I'll do this when that happens. These contingencies never come.
Truth is we have to prioritize. These things will never come to an end. These niggly tasks, these side distractions, they will never come to an end we have to prioritize focus on that Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, capitalize on your free time before your preoccupation and I'll repeat that Hades, in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, two blessings
in which many people are at a loss, a sample for good health and well for meaning free time opportunity. And the final thing is, we're here to
capitalize on your life before your death. Overall, make good use of your life before your
death can come upon us at any time.
We can't plan that I will die at the age of 70 8090 100.
Who knows what could happen?
And then when it does happen? As I mentioned those verses of the Quran, we will plead we will dream we will wish at the time of death, to be returned to life and after death, to be returned.
As a last season, that verse of the poor and what an evil elope become what a slim one a woman
and the verse Can I translated it earlier turn to Lord and submit to Him before the punishment comes upon you, then you won't be assisted. What who in the verse is continued with w escena mountains illegal murghab become a yachtie Kumara de

Why is the Lord telling you this? And the all the verses continue? And the whole industry? Yeah hasta la Mahabharata Fijian Bella, we're in come to them in a serene otaku de la la danila punto tiene una una de la de Bella only curtain for Guna Milan Marcin, but

If only I have one chance of going back Gara a return, if only I could have one return, so that I could be of those who do good. verse after verse of the horahan tells us that at the time of death, we will regret and we will want to be returned to life. And we will want this after death. We will want it in on the arm of the young it will be too late. So we'll hire out that value and appreciate your life before your death.
Another idea which is very similar to this related by month enemy, the Iraqi dinar he and he and his son and in fact Mr. Muslim ran to learn he relates in his story, in which Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says like I said, there should be no waiting there should be no deliberation when it comes to the after you mama without relates that Ethan Asana equally Shane Illa family and Earth, that there should be deliberation in everything except in the deeds of the earth. When it comes to the deeds of the Arthur, what should we do? Allah sees what's
wrong, and haste and rush towards the forgiveness of your Lord. Well for you, they're like affiliate offers and more than half a song. And in this ship, people rival with each other, rival each other vibe with each other.
What's typical here are rush towards in haste and towards
good deeds for cervical hierarchy. So a lot of houses rush hastin race, vibe with one another race against each other. In good deeds competes with one another in good deeds, deliberation, forbearance, slowness in everything, except in the deeds and the affairs of that. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in this hadith related by Muslim in history, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, but there will be an early Fitton and Capita invading Muslim
rush towards and race with your deed race against and beat
trials and tribulations that will come upon you like the dark hours of the night or like the hours of the dark nights

prophets Allah Allah sallallahu Sallam says, with good deeds race against and beat seven things
Are you but you are only being taken towards you're only being delayed the meaning of Holton the room? Is that
exactly what I was saying before, we always think No, I'll do it later. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, holding the room, you are only being delayed, if you delaying things, then reality what what will where will this delay take you?
So he says, will good deeds race against and beat seven things you are only being postponed to. And then he mentioned the seven things. The first one in La Jolla for clemency. You are only being postponed to poverty which will make you forgetful, ie forgetful of Allah. If you think you're poor now,
fear what may truly happen to you late
number two, or to wealth model in which will make you transgress. This is another thing we always think let me become financially stable financially independence let me become a bit more richer. Let me become financially secure. And then insha Allah a lead a good life, I'll do good I'll give in charity. The only problem is, wealth may come but it brings with its problems. And some of the problems of wealth are arrogance, delusion, pride, hard heartedness, corruption.
That's why the Prophet sallallahu seldom says you are only being delayed to poverty which will make you forgetful or riches which will make you transgress
or model the Masud
or you are only being delayed to sickness which will debilitate you This is why he said in the other hand, he value your health now before the arrival of illness

the sixth thing for towards the job so that if a shovel right minion thought this is an evil thing to be waiting for. Or the seventh thing oh is Sarah or the final hour or Sarah for Sarika,
so the final hour is even more bitter
and even a greater calamity. So it's a similar Hadith Prophet sallallahu Sallam says race against with with your good deeds race against these seven things and beat. And with this, I repeat that at ease with which I started on pray that Allah Subhana Allah enables us to remember these words of the youth and act upon them. Prophet sallallahu wasallam says is done in handsome humps, Shabaab Boko Haram equals a couple of soccer make a couple of *load of sugar
problematic. capitalize on five things before five.
Your help your youth before your old age, your health before your sickness, your riches and your wealth before your policy. your free time before your preoccupation and your life before your death are some of the loss of the matter after he would have sued in Vietnam while he was
