Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh brothers and sisters in Islam, I pray you all well, Milla Subhana Allah to Allah bless you all and bless your health

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

and bless all your affairs. I mean, you're blaming me Allah subhanho wa Taala shower, his divine mercy upon all those who passed away, I mean, last panel to either be pleased with us the day, our time to return to Him, comes me. Brothers and sisters in Islam, the standard lesson from the Torah today was none other than the reality

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

the reality of life. And that is that every social taste death couldn't have seen the control not every social taste death.

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

Every

00:00:45--> 00:00:49

soul should walk through a door called death.

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

Everything created

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

came into existence with an expiry date.

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

And everything that Allah subhanho wa Taala created will return to Him subhanho wa Taala

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

and Allah subhanho wa Taala when he teaches us this reality,

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

he tells us

00:01:15--> 00:01:19

that this life is not an end in and of itself. Rather, it's a means to an end.

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

It's a means to either success or failure,

00:01:24--> 00:01:36

success being gender or failure being Johanna, for Allah after telling us about death, he says from an inner, the one who saves himself or herself from the fire with the halogen

00:01:37--> 00:01:42

and is placed into Gen. One who is saved from the hellfire.

00:01:43--> 00:01:49

And the one who is placed into Gen faqad fests has indeed succeed

00:01:51--> 00:01:57

has absolutely succeeded. This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:01:58--> 00:02:03

And further on, as the man recited is pertaining to inheritance

00:02:06--> 00:02:47

what he cited, and a couple of days ago, we discussed the you know the the difficulties of wealth on the soul of a person. And sometimes people transgress because they have this wealth in their hearts and Allah teaches us about inheritance and warns us against transgressing with regards to these laws. By lacking diligence with regards to the rules of inheritance and not distributing the wealth as Allah has decreed. Don't be a servant, of your desire to be a servant of Allah. And when Allah gives us this warning, Allah then tells us about boundaries. Why does the law tell us about these boundaries? Well, because brothers and sisters in Islam if you take

00:02:48--> 00:02:54

this discussion back, a few seconds, we spoke about success.

00:02:55--> 00:03:05

And really, if you understand being entered into gender and being saved from the Hellfire, then you will see its relationship to Taco and we are in the month of taco.

00:03:07--> 00:03:34

Taco fast so that perhaps you may attain taco and taco as if it has a little Spanner and he said, who are integer anabaena kobina either below he will call a taco is to place between you and the punishment of Allah a barrier that prevents you from the punishment how by doing the good and staying away from evil by doing that which pleases ally and staying away from that with displeases Allah by remaining within the boundary.

00:03:35--> 00:03:57

So Allah tells us after the is on inheritance, about the boundaries of Allah, and whenever you look in the Quran, wherever these boundaries are mentioned, you find that if Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions boundaries after telling us about Hillel, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says kilka hula falletta to these are the boundaries of a large enough cross them.

00:03:58--> 00:04:14

When it tells us about halen, he tells us these are laws boundaries don't cross them, you can go right up to the boundary, you can smell the boundary, you can touch the boundary, you can hold the boundary, you can sit on the boundary, but do not cross the boundary. Because after you enter into ha

00:04:15--> 00:04:24

but whenever Allah tells us about how ROM, he then says these are the boundaries of law do not go near it is different to

00:04:25--> 00:04:31

the previous discussion, the previous discussion when Allah tells us about Hillel, he says these are the boundaries of Allah.

00:04:32--> 00:04:59

Do not cross it. So go near it. Hold it don't cross it. When it comes to Haram. Allah says these are the boundaries of Allah do not go near it. Do not flirt with the boundary stay away from the boundary. Because such as the nature of how long if you get close to it, your desire to touch it will be greater. So Allah tells us not to even go close to those boundaries. So stick within the limits the parameters that

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

Rules of life. We are servants of Allah, not of our desires, and every soul shall taste death, and the soul will stand in front of Allah. This is the reality and answer for everything, then, and everything not done that was supposed to be done. We Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us brothers and sisters in Islam back to the basics before the grave. The grave is the reality. Let's get back to the basics. You know, every evening or most evenings we talk about, you know, using this month to recalibrate the soul to recalibrate the heart to recalibrate the mind to recalibrate the body to recalibrate enough. Yes, we have to do it and sooner rather than later, sooner rather than later.

00:05:43--> 00:06:26

Let's get back to the basics before the grave. Yes, life throws so many curveballs that are so many responsibilities that as there's this happening is that happening with this needs to be done. That needs to be done. We have to make sure we don't we that we do not become victims of time. Because if you become a victim of time, as Allah tells us about the people before us, the heart will become hardened. And if the heart becomes hardened, Allah will mister and we will cross the boundaries that Allah has set. And only a disaster awaits us later on. Reduce this month Wow. And don't be your worst enemy by making soft excuses for your retrogression for your lack of progress. Now, brothers

00:06:26--> 00:06:30

and sisters in Israel, be your best friend by being your choices critic.

00:06:32--> 00:07:14

Right? In Africa, we say call a spade a spade, not a big spoon. do exactly that with yourself. Before the grave comes before the Angel of Death arrives before you see that angel that comes for you. And people around you won't see this angel and they'll be carrying on like nothing's wrong. And you will be in that state of shock. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us before that day, back to the basics before the grave. Turn back to your articles of faith. La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, how are you with the injunctions of this Kenny? How are you with the laws of Allah? Are you doing something that you shouldn't? Are you not doing something that you should? What about the

00:07:14--> 00:07:19

major sins? How close to them? Are you how far away from them are you?

00:07:20--> 00:07:32

Because one of the other ayat will end is Allah subhanho wa Taala teaching us that if you leave the major sins, then Allah will forgive you my innocence. Do we even know what the major sins are?

00:07:33--> 00:08:08

I've said enough inshallah. And I think the point is clear, brothers and sisters in Islam at the end, ask Allah subhanho wa Taala. To only grant us death while he's pleased with us and whilst he has decreed that he will give us a grave which is a garden from the gardens of gentlemen and whilst that whilst he has decreed that he will grant us shade on the day of piano, underneath his option, whilst he has decreed that he will give us our book of deeds in our right hands, may Allah ease our standing on the dfcm and give us glad tidings that we are from the people of gender. I mean, may Allah subhanho wa Taala send angels from gender to collect our soul? And let that be the first glad

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

tidings to help ease our shock and fear when we see the angel of death. I mean, your brothers and sisters, I love you all for the sake of Allah. ask Allah to show his mercy on you and ask you to ask Allah to show his mercy on me. barakallahu li Camilla preservers in his obedience. I mean, until next time, Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
