No nation after Ibrahim alayhis salam was wiped out in entirety Subhan Allah, this is from the the blessings of Ibrahim alayhis salam. And once again we say May Allah subhanho wa Taala gather us with him in Jana, they understood or servants of Allah, that you know what?

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

We're not supposed to live life to the grave.

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

We need to live life to beyond the grave, excuse my English, but it sounds nice.

00:00:35--> 00:01:17

We need to live live till beyond the grave. This is the reality of a believer, when you take a step in this dunya ripples should happen in your anchor. Because as a Muslim with a man, you are connected to your anchor, you there's a connection. There's a connection just like when you when you throw a stone into a pond, and the ripples move to the end of the pond, you know that there's a connection between that end of the pond and this end of the pond. Why? Because the ripples from this end reach to the other end. And it's amazing the the fuqaha discussed this a long time for some of the scholars used to say that we know a large quantity of water by

00:01:18--> 00:02:02

looking or by throwing something into the pond. If the ripples reach the other end, we say it's a small quantity of water and impurities fell fell into this end of the pond. Then we say the other end of the pond has received the impurity as well. Amazing the scholars of the past but coming back to our discussion, we should live our life in this world connected to our hereafter when we speak movement should happen in our agenda. When we eat movement should happen in our agenda. When we work movement should happen in our agenda. When we worship movement should happen in our agenda. When we walk movement should happen to our agenda, a sign that we are connected, we are connected to our

00:02:02--> 00:02:38

paradise, we live life to beyond the grave, we understand that Allah increases for the one who thanked him. And it's not only an increment specific to the paradigm of this dunya rather it surpasses the dunya for when Allah increases for us. Our journey is also becoming beautiful. This is what it is oh servants of Allah. And oh Children of Adam, when you say Alhamdulillah it's not a matter of your one. Ringgit becoming two in this dunya. It's also a matter of your one tree becoming two in Jannah. May Allah grant us the highest stages of Jannah Amin, Amin, amin Yoruba Alameen

00:02:39--> 00:03:31

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, with regards to substantiating what I've just said, Let me Shackleton let as he then know that if you are thankful Allah will increase for you. If you are thankful Allah will increase for you. I have five minutes left my dear brothers and sisters, I want to share with you a little bit about the if I read at the beginning of this talk I add from Surah to normal. I add from Surah to Naml Allah subhanahu wata, Allah says, and we certainly gave their food and Solomon knowledge. And when we gave them this gift, they said, praise is due to Allah. They thanked Allah who has favored us over many of his believing servants. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to

00:03:31--> 00:04:21

mention because of the thanks of swla Man, greater gifts which Allah gave him the gift of having control over the Dominion. Allah made the bird subservient to set a man and made the jinn, subservient to cells to slay man Alayhis Salam, and not just any Jin Oh servants of Allah, Jin, that could bring an entire throne from a distant land to Sulaiman Alayhis Salam, quicker than the blink of an eye Subhan Allah Subhana Allah, this is what Allah gives to a man control over he was a thankful slave. And so a man or Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions about Sulaiman and what Allah gave him, in that ALLAH SubhanA wa Sulayman, one day went out on a journey with his army, and they walked

00:04:21--> 00:04:59

across a valley of ants, and an end source will a man and his army and the N said, O ns, enter your home so that Sulaiman and his army did not trample over you, once they perceive not. How amazing was that for Sulaiman to hear? That was another gift from Allah to him, because of his gratitude. But what does he say Subhana. Allah, Allah He smiles. He smiles when he has this and saying what he said. And he knows that this is from Allah's gifts upon him, that he could hear what this man said. And he says

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

alayhis salam.

00:05:04--> 00:05:28

My lord, enable me to be grateful for your favor, which you have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to do righteousness of which you approve, and admit me by Your mercy into the ranks of your righteous servants, La ilaha illa Allah and then Allah subhanho wa Taala later tells us that Sulaiman alayhis. Salam says,

00:05:31--> 00:05:44

After the jinn abroad, this Mighty Throne, quicker than the blink of an eye, he says, Alayhis Salam, that this is from the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon me, to test me

00:05:46--> 00:06:31

to test me, whether I will be thankful, or whether I will be ungrateful, may Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us from being ungrateful or servants of Allah. Let us live our life to beyond the grave. And let us be thankful of Allah subhanho wa Taala with the waking of every day, and the sleeping of every night and before ending off Oh servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam, I would like to celebrate a hadith of thanks in the Sunnah with you all, and that is the statement of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he said manleigh Yesh, Karela omen lashkari Nurse la escuela that the one who cannot thank the people

00:06:32--> 00:06:57

cannot thank Allah subhanho wa Taala Subhanallah that if you want to thank Allah become a person who thinks other people because thanking people is from the lesser thanks. And if you fail with the lesser thanks, then you will definitely fail with the greater thanks. And that is when you thank Allah subhanho wa taala. So from this podium in a conference that is very emotional for me

00:06:58--> 00:07:15

being a director of Mercy mission, and that this conference has happened many times in many countries in the world but believe it or not, this is the first time have attended a tons of faith conferences and that's why I was telling the brothers Masha Allah, that Malaysia has been sweet. It's been sweet Mashallah.

00:07:18--> 00:07:37

From the outset of servants of Allah in celebrating this hadith as I see these wonderful brothers and sisters that inspire me, I would like to thank mercy mission and my team members for your excellence by Allah I have seen excellence in your, in your sleepless nights in your

00:07:39--> 00:08:26

precision execution of your tasks, in your selflessness in your care for the guests that have come in your care for all these wonderful people who I love for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala here in the audience, I thank you all for this excellence and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept from you. Truly, I have no words, except to say that your rewards are with Allah subhanahu Allah insha Allah and I also extend from this podium, a hand of gratitude to this beautiful country Malaysia for allowing me safe passage and the chance to enjoy the Malaysian hospitality, masha Allah. And I thank you all my dear brothers and sisters, my dear fathers and mothers, as I said, I love you all for the

00:08:26--> 00:09:11

sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. And it's been a dream of mine. To come and meet you all again. Believe it or not, this is my fourth trip to Malaysia. It's been a dream of mine to come meet you all again. Zachman Lokeren for attending and lending me you attentive ear. And I pray that Allah makes this gathering one which he has a good word and follows it. And last but not least, and we leave the best for last. I extend thanks to my dearest parents, and my special spouse and wonderful children, for their patience and support. In allowing me to do what I do with great application may Allah subhanho wa Taala preserve us all in his obedience and make us from the thankful I mean, I

00:09:11--> 00:09:51

love you all for the sake of Allah my dear brothers and sisters, I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala not to make this gathering of ours a last I asked him to gather as many time in this world before gathering us underneath his arch on the day of the AMA, before gathering us in Jannah with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Ibrahim alayhis salam so we can sit together and discuss with them one fine humid afternoon in Malaysia, where we sat together in a wonderful venue, discussing the lessons from the lives of these prophets and the importance of being grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala everything correct Sadie's from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's perfect and any mistakes for
