indeed all praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we seek Allah subhanho wa Taala as assistance and we see colossal Anahata as guidance and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the adverse consequences of our deeds and the evils of our souls who serve Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon the non cannabis guide that person and whom serve Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees misguidance upon the man can guide him and peace and blessings be upon Muhammad Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as to what follows I would like to start off by expressing my heartfelt gratitude, to gms to its director, a woman for sharing me this invite to be

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

with you all this 2012 I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to also bless gms and bless you all as investors to this particular conference and inshallah, as the talk goes along, you will understand why I have called you investors insha Allah and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us a gathering that is surrounded by angels, to make us a gathering that he is a good word and follows it and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us a gathering that is forgiven upon our departure, as well as I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala together as engender in the same way that he has gathered us here today. I mean, first things first, are servants of Allah. And that is that our present

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

Here at this particular conference is solely to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is something that we need to keep manifestly alive in our hearts. We are here to learn Yes, but that is a secondary objective. We are here to meet our fellow Muslim Brothers, and for the sisters to meet their fellow Muslim sisters, but that is a third party objective. The primary focus of your attendance here is the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You have to believe that from the time you left your home, during the travel that you experience coming here, during the days that you will stay at this particular venue, you are in the worship of Allah.

00:05:43--> 00:05:53

Allah, Allah, Allah Haruka Ha. Your presence here is a means of building your paradise. Your presence here is a means of making your skills weighty on the day of

00:05:54--> 00:06:42

your presence here is not in vain. And Allah subhanho wa Taala does not allow the good of those that do good to go astray. So hon Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our deeds, and May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive our mistakes. Indeed, he is upon all Eva. I mean, the topic I shared with you earlier, is having faith in an eternal life, as well as achieving freedom from eternal despair. And as someone said, just before I walked into the venue, the topic itself is a lecture, right? The wordings of the topic is a lecture in and of itself. And this is a very clear in the fact that Islam and our sources has shared wholesome lessons pertaining to

00:06:43--> 00:07:26

both the titles that I've read to you. So there's two titles that have come together. And in reality, we could actually have two separate talks regarding this but nonetheless, it is, but and important inclusion and hamdulillah in the list of topics for this year's conference, and inshallah We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, to grant us the ability to do some form of justice to it. I mean, so once again, having faith for an eternal life, and achieving freedom from eternal despair. Now, my dear brothers and sisters, my dear mother, mothers and fathers, that which there's no doubt in is that we will live two lives, we will live two lives, a life which is temporary, and the life which

00:07:26--> 00:08:16

is eternal life which is temporary, and the life which is eternal. And we understand the reality of the temporary life when we study the Islamic sources. And we hear for example, the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When he said, in the comedian, or in the home to Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed to his prophet that you will die and they will die. And Allah subhanho wa Taala said kulula of sin, the cultural modes, Allah subhanho wa Taala said that every soul shall taste death. And if we look at the teachings of Muhammad, Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And let us ensure that when we hear the word Muhammad, we say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as this is from the rights and manners

00:08:16--> 00:09:04

and etiquettes with our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when we look at his teachings are servants of Allah, and all children of Adam, we find several a prophetic narration that makes manifest the temporary nature of our life in this world. So for example, he advised us by saying, Lucky loom otaku, La ilaha illAllah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that we should make our dying, repeat the statement, La ilaha illa Allah. So the fact that he taught us this lesson, teaches us the temporary nature of this life of the temporary life, which is one of the two lives that I shared with you earlier. And this was manifest amongst people in general, or this

00:09:04--> 00:09:56

understanding of a life being temporary, was manifest in people in general. So we find the statement of a poet, an Arabian poet, when he said, Alamo to Babylon workqueue NASA, hello, that death is a door. And each and every one of us will walk through that door. very eloquent words and words that really strike a nerve within ourselves. It brings forth an awareness and acute awareness and an understanding that each and every one of us will die. And this is something which we have witnessed, and our sources are indeed enough for us, also servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam, that which there is no doubting is that we have an everlasting life awaiting us. We have an everlasting

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

life, awaiting us for Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

I said, we're in a Dell era.

00:10:05--> 00:10:54

That Indeed, the life of the Hereafter is forever. Allah subhanho wa Taala your Creator and my Creator, the Lord of the worlds are blessed that he will Joanne Allahu kahar. The only one worthy of worship the irresistible ahead alpha summit, a lady Lamia lead, will a new lead. Well me, Lou and I had sapan who were to Allah, glory and Exalted be his mentioned, told us that the life of the Hereafter is indeed forever. And as believers in the words of our Creator, and in the authenticity of the Quran, that it is the unchanged word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We believe without doubt that the life of the Hereafter is eternal, the life of the year after is everlasting. Now that we've

00:10:54--> 00:11:47

brought about the fact that we will live two lives, we need to also remind one another, that mankind differed in their understanding regarding the reality of life, the reality of life, and you can write life in capital letters, they differ in the understanding of the reality of life. So we have a group that thought life was the life of this world, they thought that life was the life of this world. So they forgot about the concept of boundaries. And they did everything in the capacity to quench the thirst of their desires to satisfy their whims to complete their fancies. And that made sense because they made the concept of life this temporary life. So the net result of that is doing

00:11:47--> 00:12:25

everything in our capacity to achieve all our ones before this life is taken away. They sacrificed everything important for that which they thought was important, and they lived their lives as a result in Oblivion, a state of heedlessness a state where they were governed by the whims and fancies and there was no concept of responsibility, no concept of accountability that mattered to them. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about these people. In his book, Allah subhanho wa Taala says fella to urge ibuka Mr. Lu home oil.

00:12:27--> 00:12:39

Ola do home in you read Allahu Li zeba whom beha Phil hyah t dounia. What does

00:12:40--> 00:13:28

fuzu whom or whom Cafiero rune? Allah subhanho wa Taala says regarding these people who thought that the true life was the life of this world, Allah said, to not become fascinated and did not become amazed by their wealth, their financial standing, their material well being and do not become amazed as well. regarding their children, it is only that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to punish them with their financial standing in material well being wants to punish them with the children that has blessed them. So panela wealth, which everyone knows, is a means of goodness, right? Nobody says no to wealth, right? Everybody is trying to increase the material well being nobody's trying to

00:13:28--> 00:14:07

decrease it. Nobody stands up one day and says, You know what? I've had enough of earning money. I want to become bankrupt. Does anybody say that? So how does that work that Allah subhanho wa Taala says that Allah only wants to punish them with their wealth. What does haka and foster home welcome Kathy rune, and they are from the disbelievers. Now, obviously, Allah gave them the blessings. And these were people who didn't know boundaries. So they use these blessings in a way which contradicted the teachings of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the teachings of His Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So they lived lives without boundaries, and they were given

00:14:07--> 00:14:52

only to indulge even more in their disobedience, only to indulge even more in their disbelief. And as a result of the extreme indulgence, the punishment in the real life which is the life of the year after increased, does that make sense? This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala says about them. Allah subhanho wa Taala says about them firma. Robbie had tiara to him when I can Oh my god. Allah subhanho wa Taala says the trade was not blessed with any real profit. Their trade was not blessed with any real profit and they were from the misguided. In fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, They traded the greater for the lesser. They sold the hereafter for a poultry price of this temporary

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

life. We Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us well, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in sort of out there eloquently and

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

The words of Allah subhanho wa Taala all eloquent Allah subhanho wa Taala says, yeah.

00:15:07--> 00:15:38

So in our adult life he has for Allah subhanho wa Taala says all mankind, all mankind. Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala at times addresses the believers in his book here, Allah subhanho wa Taala says all mankind, Allah is addressing everybody, oh mankind Indeed, the promise of Allah is, is true and in truth, then Allah subhanho wa Taala advises us and says, fella, to run,

00:15:39--> 00:16:17

to do Nia, Allah say so don't become diluted. With regards to the life of this world. It is only a deception, to not become diluted, regarding the life of this world, while Yahoo run Billa Hello hooroo and do not become deceived by the deceiver, who is shaped by the devil. So Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us and he advises us and he reminds us regarding the plight of those who made this life, their true life may Allah subhanho wa Taala. grant us the understanding, I mean,

00:16:18--> 00:17:11

now, as we have a group who are misguided in the understanding of life, we have another group, and this group hit the nail on the spot, when they took to task the concept of understanding the reality of life. And they considered life the life of the hereafter. Again life in capital letters, if they considered life, the life of the hereafter. And because of this, they remembered the words of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he said, couldn't fit dunia, kaneka Hari, O Abu Seville, that remain in this world. As if you are a traveler, or a wayfarer. We know that when we travel, we pack only what we need. We don't indulge and sort of pack access to our requirements

00:17:11--> 00:17:55

because travel is difficult. The airlines only give us 20 kgs. Right. And if we overweight, it's extremely expensive, right? So we pack according to our requirements, and this is what our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching us live in this world as if you are a traveler, don't live as if you settling here. Understand that the real life is the life of the hereafter that is a place of settlement, and not this place. So this group, understood wholesomely the words of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this group understood when our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Pharaoh ness, man, Parla amaru wasana Emmylou that the best of all people are

00:17:55--> 00:18:44

those who have been blessed with a long life and been blessed with good deeds. They lived a long life, and they live that long life in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they understood the words of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he said, Well, Sharon s men, Pilar Maru, WA said, that the worst of all people are those who live a long life, but they live that life in the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is a group, oh seven of Allah, and oh Children of Adam, who understood the reality of life. Thus, they invested not the word invest, they invested they health before sickness, they invested their wealth before poverty, they invested they

00:18:44--> 00:19:32

use before old age, and they invested their free time before they became busy. And they invested their life before their death. This was the net result when the understanding was correct. Now, why do I use the word invest, understand are servants of Allah, no children of Adam, now that you know that the real life is the life of the hereafter. Understand that this time that we've been given, and this wealth that we've been given, does not belong to us. It belongs to Allah subhanho attack, we have been given it and as a result of this, we will be answerable with regards to how we utilize this time and how we utilize this wealth. If it was our time, and our wealth. Why should we answer

00:19:32--> 00:19:56

about anything that we do? That makes sense? Right? Right. If you have 1000 pounds, I almost had Zimbabwe dollars, but it's non existent. If you had 1000 pounds, you can spend it how you want, I can spend 1000 pounds how I want is that correct? Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book in LA hasta, la mina meeny,

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

fusa home more

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Whom bn Allah whom Allah.

00:20:05--> 00:20:51

Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says that Indeed, Allah has bought from the believers, their lives and their wealth, in exchange for gender, in exchange for gender. So we took ownership of gender and Allah subhanho wa Taala took ownership of our life in our Are we all clear on this? Okay, let's move on. Now that we've understood that we don't own our time, and we don't own our wealth, we should never ever say we have sacrificed our time, or we have sacrificed our Well, when we do that, which is the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is a common statement nowadays, if you attend the talk, or if somebody donates, the speaker, at the end will say, we thank you for sacrificing

00:20:51--> 00:21:32

your time. And we thank you for sacrificing your wealth. And we need to put a big X on that particular statement. It's not sacrifice, it's investment. We do sacrifice. But I'll tell you that a little bit later, when you spend a lot of time that he's given us the way he wants us to spend that time and his wealth, which is given us the way he wants us to spend that wealth we have invested, we haven't sacrificed. So that was the sacrifice if I gave you 1000 pounds, and I said hold this amount of money, and next week, I will send you an instruction of where to deliver that amount. And the following week, I said please go to Brother with man. And please pass on that amount to him. Do you

00:21:32--> 00:22:13

have the right to go to his mind and say he has 1000 pounds which have sacrificed? Do you stretch your money to sacrifice. So if this is not our wealth and not our time, it's not ours to sacrifice when you attend the conference like this, when you spend in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala when you spend your day looking after the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala you have invested because Allah subhanho wa Taala is not in need of your piety. His Majesty is great whether you worship him or you don't worship Him, whether I worship him or I don't worship Him. Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't need us to prostrate to increase his rank that how La La quwata illa Billah when we followed

00:22:13--> 00:22:55

his commands, Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us a big agenda. He invested our piety for our benefit La ilaha illa Allah, but when do you really sacrifice sacrifice are servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam happens when you spend this wealth and this time which we don't own in the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala because when you do that you are sacrificing your agenda. You are sacrificing your paradise, when you could be investing and growing it you are depleting it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So I want you guys to have this understanding these and that's why at the beginning I said you are here to worship Allah we are investors, and I thank you

00:22:55--> 00:23:41

for investing your time and I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to increase your investment, there is no better way to invest our wealth, except in the way of Allah azza wa jal Allah, Allahu kaha. So servants of Allah once again, I say, what's the correct understanding this group of people invested their health before sickness, and they invested their wealth before poverty, and they invested they use before they became old, or they youthfulness and they invested their free time before they became busy. And they invested their life before their death. May Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from the people agenda when the time of death applies to US Army. So this group of sevens of Allah

00:23:41--> 00:24:24

and oh Children of Adam and my dear fathers and mothers and my dear brothers and sisters, this was a group that saw this temporary life as a means to an end and not an end. Does that make sense? They saw it as a means to an end and not an end. And as a result, their spacious homes did not affect them. As with that spacious home, they remembered the tightness of the grave and the bright chandeliers that lit their homes did not affect them, because with those chandeliers they remembered the darkness of the grave, so panela and they preserved or persevered, rather, in all good, as they remembered the words of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he said

00:24:26--> 00:24:59

minalima ruhija wallow in yellow, a haka be white wedge hin Pollock, and another in another narration. And in another narration. In any case, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Do not belittle any good deed. Do not belittle any good deed, even if it is a matter of meeting your fellow brother with a smiley face with a happy face. So panela today, how do we meet people with a serious face? Right? We should meet them with a happy face because meeting them with a happy face is

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

investment. So when you understand where you are, and you understand where you will travel to, and you understand how to get there successfully, you have become a person who lives their life with perspective, because that's what perspective is with clarity. And because that's what clarity is, right? You know where you are, you know where you're going. And you know how to get there successfully, because everybody will get there. But the question is, who will be successful? And who won't? My dear brothers and sisters, now that we've affirmed the everlasting nature of the hereafter? And we've discussed how groups have differed in the understanding of life, ask the

00:25:39--> 00:26:25

question, why is belief in the hereafter so important? Why is belief in this eternal life? As is one part of this talk today? Why is it so important? There's countless pieces of information I can share with you regarding this right. But I'll share with you some belief in the year after dear attendees is a momentous concept in our lives with uncountable benefits and that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala made belief in the last day, which denotes the beginning of the year after a pillar from the pillars of Eman, a pillar from the pillars of Emacs and Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the second use laser era and to elude you, cable and machinery while mohareb while I Kindle dear man, Amina

00:26:25--> 00:26:36

Billa, Leone, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says piety, piety is not from turning your faces towards the east and the west. But true piety

00:26:37--> 00:27:17

is in believing in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the last day, and Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in it some other pillars from the pillars of Eman in that particular ayah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala clearly tells us that it is from piety, and it is from better to believe in the last day, believing in the last day, or servants of Allah allows us to deal with adversities that we experienced in this temporary life. It truly does. Imagine if somebody's oppressors and oppressors and oppressors and oppressors, and then they just dropped it. After all the hurt that you feel and the oppression that they've done to you. Wouldn't that be a bigger problem for you? That that's it.

00:27:17--> 00:28:01

It just dropped dead. They did what they did. And they oppressed and they stole, and they usurped and they might have killed and they just dropped dead? Doesn't that create a bigger problem in our minds and hearts way is the form of justice here. Right? And mankind by nature, it is part of our natural disposition to do everything in our capacity to attain justice, even the two year old child wants justice. So hey, no, let me tell you why. When the two year old child is walking, and he bumps his head on the wall, for example, he starts crying, isn't it? What do you do to stop the child crying? You hit the wall, no to the child is happy. hamdulillah justice, right? Although you

00:28:01--> 00:28:39

shouldn't do that, that's bad. That's bad. Because then you teach the child that when you get hurt, you should hit deeper, right? Because the child learns that, oh, that's what my mother does, you hit the wall. When somebody hits me, I'm gonna hit him as well. So we should that's bad. That's not the ideal way of dealing with the situation. But that's to do with another topic. So we won't discuss that. So believing the hereafter helps us understand this concept of justice, and it helps add peace in our lives, because we know we will go to a date in which no oppression will take place, and pure justice will exist. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will take each and every body to task, each and

00:28:39--> 00:29:24

every one will be taken to task so panela. So this belief in the last day indeed as peace and contentment to our lives, belief in the last day weakens the trials and tribulations that we face in this world by a lie does, because we know that if we are patient in our adversities, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward us with a greater price with a greater price. So panela is not a concept of we suffering in this world. And that's it. No, your difficulty is a means of greatness for yourself. So be a person of resilience in your difficulty and maintain patience. And this can only happen based on the strength of your belief in the last day. We have heard people say, may

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

Allah protect us all? Why does Allah subhanho wa Taala do this to us with the goodness in such an such an act, for example, this or these statements are a clear sign of lack of belief in the last day. That's where the problem is. Many people ask how do we solve the problem? You solve the problem through teaching them the reality. But before that there's a step. You have to solve that problem through building a map. You have to solve that problem through building a man may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding, believes in the hereafter servants of Allah. No Children of Adam helps us understand really

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

concept of loss. That loss in this world is actually a game. It's not a loss. And true loss is the loss of the Hereafter, we lose something in this world, it is a game. It's not a loss. Because mankind by default, when they a business deal goes bad. There's a recession and investment went down, they say, I mean a loss concept. I mean a loss. If the home has a difficulty, something happened in the home, I have lost if the business engagement didn't go too well. They could say I have lost but a person who really believes in the last day truly understands the concept of loss, and doesn't say I have lost rather they say Alhamdulillah he and aquileia pray all praises belong to

00:30:43--> 00:31:26

Allah subhanho wa Taala. in every circumstance, for whatever Allah does, he does good and the good in the difficulty that I'm experiencing. Now I may not comprehend, but there is a day that will come in which I will understand the reality of this difficulty. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us this understanding. So these are some of the reasons why we should be diligent with regards to our belief in the last day. Now, as for the second part of this talk, and that is achieving freedom from eternal despair, achieving freedom from eternal despair, then oh servants of Allah, no children of Adam, and my dear mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters know and understand that achieving

00:31:26--> 00:31:41

freedom from eternal despair is the essence of our life in this world. People always ask who's the successful one who is the successful one? Listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala says? Allah subhanho wa Taala says kulula have seen

00:32:09--> 00:32:57

Allah subhanho wa Taala says every social tastes death, were intimate to a foreigner will do the communal pm belief in the last day and indeed, the rewards of your deeds will be shown to you on the day of the last day from NZ and inna. As for the one who has freed himself from the Hellfire who has been saved rather from the Hellfire, what would the halal agenda and has been entered into agenda for God first, he is the one who has indeed passed. He is the one who has indeed succeeded woman hired to do near illimitable horror and there's nothing about this temporary life that you live in, except deception, glitter and glamour, but it's not going to last. So what do we need to do to

00:32:57--> 00:33:39

ensure that we are from the successful ones and they asked, What do we need to do? Well, we can generalize that statement and say that what we have to do is accept the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and accept the prophecy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and accepting the prophecy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam entails doing the do's and staying away from the don'ts, right? A person who lives their life this way, stands a great chance of succeeding in the hereafter. Even though we should understand that it is not our deeds that will gain us entry into paradise. It is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that will gain us entry into paradise. Understand this well and

00:33:39--> 00:34:22

clear are servants of Allah, we have to work we have to obey the commands and stay away from that which we have been warned against. But never ever forget that entry into gender sex to succeed in the Hereafter, is directly proportional to the amount of mercy that Allah subhanho wa Taala showers upon us on that day, because we know ourselves that even our worship lacks, we observe Salah our concentration is weak, right? We do an act of good and sometimes we feel that we have achieved and attained and that is a dangerous feeling. And sometimes we do good and there is weakness in terms of our sincerity regarding the good that we have done. So it is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:34:22--> 00:34:59

that dictates that we enter agenda and understand that we will always be in debt to Allah subhanho wa Taala we will never ever pay Allah subhanho wa Taala back and I'm not talking on the literal sense because we know Allah has given us a breath. So that's a blessing and everyday we breathe every second we breathe in a second maybe we breathe many more times. So we always in debt. I'm talking about us being in debt in the fact that when you worship Allah, He rewarded you. So you indebted and then you thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for allowing you to worship Him. And He rewarded you for that. Thanks. So you indebted

00:35:00--> 00:35:22

So you thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for allowing you to thank him for allowing you to worship Him and He rewarded you again. So you indeed again, you will never ever forget Allah subhanho wa Taala back we will always be in debt to Allah subhanho wa Taala just understand it is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that dictates our entry into gender May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from the people of gender.

00:35:23--> 00:35:35

So this is a general guide, a general principle, a general rule for us to attain salvation in the year after, but allow me to speak about one particular act of worship

00:35:36--> 00:36:20

before our time runs out, and this act of worship is the most important act of worship. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed it as the second pillar of Islam after two hit after the hit, of course, the hit is the essence of everything. But as believers there's one act of worship we should never, ever, ever be Alexa and that is that is hungry. I think we can close the talk we all know it very Salah a salatu salam, O sevens of Allah and oh Children of Adam, understand that this Salah is the essence with regards to being salvaged in the after. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the first thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala will ask about the first deed is your Salah.

00:36:20--> 00:37:02

And if your Salah passes the test, all your other deeds will stand upright. You're fasting, your charity, your hedge, you're smiling, when you meet when you meet your fellow Muslim brother and so on and so forth. All those deeds will stand upright only after your Salah stands up right in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala and if the seller doesn't stand, then none of the deeds will stand. This Salah is so important are servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam, that Allah subhanho wa Taala brought his messenger to him to grant him this gift of Salah. All the other obligations were revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whilst he was on Earth. This is the essence of

00:37:02--> 00:37:48

Salah, this Salah Oh servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam, was the advice of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was on his deathbed for he said a Salah to Sarah. Look after your Salah. Look after your Salah. This Salah are servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam, is the greatest opportunity for us to be closest to Allah subhanho wa Taala for the closest that a slave is to his creator is when he or she is in prostration sudduth May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us death. Once we Institute what an honorable way to die, I mean, but when we look at the Ummah, we find with regards to Salah, we can categorize the Ummah into three groups, we can categorize the

00:37:48--> 00:38:33

Ummah into three groups. So we sadly have a group that consists of individuals that have never placed their forehead on the ground for Allah Subhana who attend. They don't know. They've never tasted the sweetness of sudduth of putting their forehead, which is the most elevated part of the body, on the ground, for the sake of the Lord of the worlds. They've never done that. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from this group. This is a group of servants of Allah that have not comprehended the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah whomever Zhu Li Amina, Avi, Yama, Yakumo ness, they are bill al Ameen, Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah says Allah, Allah, do

00:38:33--> 00:39:05

they not think do they not think and assume that they will be returned to Allah subhanho wa Taala and resurrected on the last day and our topic is about the last day and believe in eternal life. Leo min Avi on the DST Yama, Yama, your humaneness the day in which people will be or will stand rather in front of the Lord of the worlds Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala servants of Allah tells us in his book, so beautiful, so beautiful Allah subhanho wa Taala says lm Tara

00:39:53--> 00:40:00

Allah subhanho wa Taala says Allah says do you not see that everything in the skies and everything

00:40:00--> 00:40:46

On Earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains and the trees and the animals, prostrate to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Everything proceeds to Allah subhanho wa Taala. But when Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about mankind, what did he say? What can he roominess? He didn't say all of mankind, he said many of mankind, and we are the beings of intellect, we have the brain and the intellectuality to allow us to understand what we should be doing and what we shouldn't be doing. Yet Allah says the animals all prostrate, but with regards to mankind, most prospect, a lot of mankind prostrate. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We're continuing hakala Hill as up and for

00:40:46--> 00:41:27

many a great punishment or may you have any left and as for the one that Allah disgraces from Allah who mean mccrum there is no one who can give this person en la ilaha illa Allah May Allah hoomin Muslim if Allah disgraces you, no one will give you Allah in Allah if Allah Masha and Indeed Allah does as He wills. So this is the first group of servants of Allah, no children of Adam, and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala protection from this group. The second group of people consists of those who observe the Salah Shangri La, they observe their Salah, however, however, they observe their surah when they finish working, and they observe their Salah when they finish playing, and they observe

00:41:27--> 00:42:07

their Salah when it suits them. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala again to protect us from this group, have they not heard we Allah subhanho wa Taala said for a little mousseline la Vina whom am Salah Team sanghoon that will be upon those who observe their Salah after it's fixed and prescribed times have they not heard we Allah subhanho wa Taala said for holla from embody him holophone of our Salah, whatever oshawott for Sofia, Elko, Nevada, that after the messengers and the rightly guided people came a generation of people that wasted their salah and follow their desires and they will be flung into the depths of Jannah May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So we ask Allah subhanho wa

00:42:07--> 00:42:48

Taala again, to protect us from this group. The third group of people consists of a group that we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from them. They are a group that observed their Salah on time, every time on time, every time they never, ever delayed. During the early hours of the mornings. If you pass their homes, you see the light switch on and you hear movements in their homes and this is throughout their beat in the winter, or beat in the summer. No matter how early failure is, or no matter how late it is, no matter how hot the night is, or no matter how cold the night is. These are people who are upon their Salawat on time, every time for they understood when Allah

00:42:48--> 00:43:25

subhanho wa Taala said was said before the Sadiq Khan when Allah subhanho wa Taala praised the competitors in his worship. Allah equal makara boon they understood when Allah said these competitors are from the close ones. These are people who understood that Allah subhanho wa Taala said what more Allah beside it was to be really learned this Luca is con la Luna zoek will akeeba to the taco. They understood when Allah subhanho wa Taala said command your families to Salah was Sabir Allah and be patient upon that Nana's Allah chorus can we do not ask you for sustenance.

00:43:26--> 00:44:07

We are the ones who provide you your sustenance, will occupa to the taco. And the good ending is for the people of taqwa May Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from the Mattoon. I mean, so, this really brings us back to the concept of having faith for an eternal life and achieving freedom from eternal despair. Because here are servants of Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us that your aim and objective in this world is not to feed yourself. Your aim and objective in this world is to earn the year after and this was manifest in the pious predecessors before us. Once a person came to one of the pious predecessors and complained about the high cost of living said, You know what? prices are

00:44:07--> 00:44:48

going up, the cost of living has increased. And this person responded to him and said, I don't know what you're talking about earlier, and our Buddha who came Imani or LA he? Can he come our identity, it is for me to worship Allah as he commanded me to do and it is for Allah to provide for me as his promise to provide for others doesn't mean we should sit at home with our mouths open and expect food to fly from the heavens into our bellies. No, doesn't mean that what we saying is we should get our priorities correct and right. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those that have strong belief in their after, who are always upon their salah and upon the obedience of Allah

00:44:48--> 00:44:59

subhanho wa Taala I will end off with a passage and I have to end up with this passage because we're not here to put people into despair. The topic is achieving freedom from eternity.

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

dispay so how can I come here and put you into despair? That wouldn't make sense, isn't it? I'm not here to hand anybody first class tickets on Emirates to the fire of janam. Absolutely not. So, I must say this bit before ending, and that is my dear brothers and sisters, my dear mothers and fathers never ever lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Don't feel that now we've categorized people with regards to the Salah, and we may not be as diligent as we supposed to be, that we are people heading for eternal Doom, and we don't have the ability abilities to achieve freedom from eternal despair. Don't ever feel that for as long as you are breathing, you have a

00:45:39--> 00:46:21

chance to turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala as long as you are breathing, you have a chance to return back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. I said this in the Juma yesterday I missed your taco, and I'll share with you this hadith again. My dear brothers and sisters, who is the one who says you have an Adam lo Bella had Zulu bukan and his summer semester fratelli legato, Haleakala Valley, who is the one who says Oh son of Adam, if your sins were so many, that they reach the surfaces of the skies, then you sought forgiveness for your sins. Allah says I will forgive your sins for you and it won't even matter to me who says this? in Allah? Indeed it is Allah subhanho wa Taala Who is the one

00:46:21--> 00:47:13

who says you have an Adam? Oh, son of Adam, in the own I believe and a half or and, you know by Jamie and thoroughly African. Who is the one who says Oh, son of Adam, you send throughout the day and you send throughout the night? Well, no, no, but Jamia is Allah who forgives all sins for stock theory. So seek forgiveness, repent from your sins of Lacan, and I forgive your sins for you. Who says this? Indeed, it is Allah who says, never bear a baddie knee and aloha fu Rahim, who is the one who commanded His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to tell us that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. Never, ever lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala. In authentic

00:47:13--> 00:47:57

hadith, it is mentioned that a slave makes a mistake, he makes a mistake. So he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala and he says you're a B as an up to them Ben Foxworthy. Oh Allah, I have committed a sin Forgive me. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells his angels bear witness that I forgiven him. And then this slave falls into the same mistake again. He just sought forgiveness from it. And he fell into the same mistake again. So he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala and says, yarby as nap to them been fulfilled, oh my god, I have arrived. I have made an error. I have sinned, forgive me. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells the angels bear witness I have forgiven him. And then he makes the mistake

00:47:58--> 00:48:43

again. And he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala again, and he says, Yeah, I'll be as nice to them Ben for clearly. Oh my Rob, I have sinned. Forgive me. What do you think Allah subhanho wa Taala says, third time, mistake after mistake after mistake. What do you think Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, to use angels to bear witness, bear witness that this slave of mine believes that he has a creator, a lord who is capable over him who can hold him to task for his mistakes. And he believes that his creator is the most forgiving the Most Merciful. Bear with this debt from today the slave is forgiven for whatever he does. La ilaha illAllah La ilaha illa Allah O

00:48:43--> 00:49:24

sevens have a line or children of Adam, how can you lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala never ever become despondent. Never ever lived your life in a state where you feel you have not achieved salvation from eternal despair. I hope these few words at the end has balanced the topic and you walk out of this room happy feeling more content and understanding that not only do you have a chance to get gender, but you have a chance to get gender with Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I ended up with an idea. And this idea is an idea of hope. The allameh have said this idea is an idea of hope. And this idea is in Surah to Zuma for those who want to

00:49:24--> 00:49:31

revise it, and it is what Allah subhanho wa Taala says gulia eva da levena Ashraful
