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

Brothers and sisters, what make us separate

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

from those who disbelieve

00:00:08--> 00:00:10

our loving Now you may know

00:00:13--> 00:00:14

those who believe in the hereafter.

00:00:17--> 00:00:19

One thing that we all have in common tonight

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

is that we bear witness that everybody is going to die

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

colonna, Epson equal to lmao every social taste of death

00:00:33--> 00:00:38

139 million people a year will die

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

on this planet.

00:00:42--> 00:00:45

every two seconds, nine babies are born

00:00:46--> 00:00:47

and three people die.

00:00:49--> 00:00:52

In brothers and sisters, every moment you live,

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

you will get closer to the grave.

00:00:59--> 00:01:02

The currency of the hereafter

00:01:04--> 00:01:06

what would it be? after we die?

00:01:08--> 00:01:11

I would like to focus today's talk

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

on basically to Hadith

00:01:15--> 00:01:22

of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, it will be the basis of my discussion, the currency of the hereafter.

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

When you look at this money that we have

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

this dollar bill

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

has no intrinsic value of its own.

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

This by itself can help you, you can't eat it.

00:01:46--> 00:01:49

It has no real value except that we give it a value.

00:01:50--> 00:01:54

And we exchange this money for something of real value.

00:01:56--> 00:02:00

We give somebody $1 and we get Bread,

00:02:01--> 00:02:15

bread to eat to sustain our life. bread has value because it can give us life $1 bill has no real value, except in our mind, we accept it as a value

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

I have here What is this? Can you tell

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

what is a Canadian dollar?

00:02:29--> 00:02:30

One

00:02:33--> 00:02:33

you have?

00:02:36--> 00:02:42

Who would trade me my 10 Canadian dollar for your 10 US dollar anyone

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

to have any such people in audience tonight.

00:02:50--> 00:02:59

This money, if you go to the store in Miami, buy bread with this. They won't accept it.

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

They won't accept it because it's not the right currency. If you go to Canada, and use this money, it's good. And you can buy goods because it's the right currency. So every country you go in, they have their own currency. And in order for you to use this, you have to stop in the exchange the money exchange and say look, I like to exchange this so that I can have some currency in this country so that I can buy the things that I need.

00:03:32--> 00:03:32

Fair.

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

This has no value

00:03:40--> 00:03:41

to a bird.

00:03:42--> 00:03:45

This has no value to an insect to an animal.

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

Water has value

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

and has real value.

00:03:57--> 00:04:05

But I want you to see tonight brothers and sisters that this has no real value. Sometimes the money devalues.

00:04:07--> 00:04:13

And you can't buy what you used to buy. With these things. it fluctuates it changes.

00:04:14--> 00:04:28

And if every kind of life has its own things of value, a fish, an insect, an animal, a plant, all of them have different forms of value.

00:04:30--> 00:04:50

And the same way animals, countries, insects and plants have their own value. So does Allah upon what Allah has its value in So tonight, we want to talk about, I think one of the most important topics and that is the currency of the hero.
