Well my head he'll hire to dunia Elana homeowner. And this worldly life is not but diversion and amusement. The life of this world is just a play, just something that you get amused by. But it's temporary. Just as a TV show. Eventually it comes to an end, the best movies and that you enjoy watching what happens. The screen says the end, the best fasts that you can get to the best, you know, amusement park in this world, even what happens? It tells you that now the park has to be closed. This is true with this life, that everything about this life, no matter how enjoyable it is, what is it? It's temporary, it's just a diversion. It's an amusement, then where is real life? Where
is real, ultimate permanent joy and satisfaction and pleasure? Where does it lie? When in doubt on earth irata Allah heal higher,
and indeed the home of the hereafter. That is the real life that is the life low can we are the moon if only they knew. So right now, as we're living in this world, who are we then what is our reality? We are all travelers, this dunya is not a place to live in. It's not a place where you make your home and you settle? No, it's a temporary place of stay. The real place to live is where the real residence is where it's the residents of the Sahara. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say aloha Malaysia illa earthhero or Allah, there is no life except the life of the author, and the fasting of Ramadan, the entire month of Ramadan, what does that show to you? When your sleep is
broken? When your comfort and your pleasures are put aside, they're destroyed. Literally, they're ruined. Because even at all time when you have the best meal in front of you, can you really enjoy it? No. Because when you eat it after the whole day, all you can eat is just a little bit movie. What happens that that's the whole time you have the food in front of you, but you cannot enjoy it. Why? Because you've barely digested your thought that you have to now eaters or hold, your coffee sits in front of you and you cannot enjoy it, all you can have is just maybe a few sips your water jug is sitting in front of you and you've been dreaming all day that you will drink it, but what
happens, you don't really enjoy it. Why? Because this is the sad reality of this life, the real life, real enjoyment is in general. And every pleasure in this world is coupled with pain and hardship or some element of dissatisfaction of annoyance. You know, the best place that you can go to the most luxurious hotel even that you can go to even there, you will be disappointed. Even there you will find things that will annoy you that will bother you that will irritate you.
The best places in this world even Why? Because this is how this world is. Allah has removed perfection from this world. Salaam meaning absolute safety, security. This is not found in this world. Where is it? It is in darussalam it isn't the home of peace, it is the home of security. So that is what we should be aiming for. Because if you think about it this life no matter what you have, no matter how much you enjoy it no matter how long of a life a person lives, no matter how luxurious, how comfortable life a person lives in this world. Ultimately at the end of this life is what there is death.
There is death, every Prince every Princess, every king, every Queen, every president what happens to them, they die.
So what good is the life at the end of witches death? Like seriously, what good is that life at the end of witches death. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you know that the return is to Allah and then either to gender or to hell is your final outcome. They are such residents as meaning gender jahannam are such abodes that there is no departure from their no departure from their such eternity, that there is no death. And there people will have such bodies that will not die. Such bodies that will not die meaning in hell people will not die.
Jenna also people will not die. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there will be an announcer in Paradise, who will make this announcement, verily, there is in store for you everlasting health, and you will never fall ill and you will live forever and you will not die at all. You will remain young, and you will never grow old. And you will always live in affluent circumstances and never become destitute. This is
where body does not age where health does not deteriorate. Where with the passage of time, a person does not get bored. Where there is no overindulgence in general, there is no overindulgence in general, because no matter how much a person enjoys, he can never exceed the bounds of enjoyment. Why? Because there are no limits for pleasure in general, no limits whatsoever. This is Germany, this is what we should be aiming for. So much so that you know what happens in this life, you're having the best time with your friends. But then what happens you get tired, you need to sleep. Even if you go for a sleep over to your friend's house, and you're talking and you're watching one movie
after the other and you're eating and you're you're having so much fun, what happens eventually, what happens, you fall asleep. In general, there is no sleep. I mean, this could be bad news for people who love to sleep. But the one who's really having the best time of their life, they really don't want to sleep. And you can see that in children. Because children, their goal is to just play and have fun. Do they like to sleep? No way. They don't like to sleep. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that sleep is the brother or the sister of that. And the people of Jenna will not sleep, they will not want to sleep. We like to sleep when we're mentally exhausted when we're physically
exhausted when we're emotionally drained, when we need a break. But in general, there is no need to take a break. This is the real life. And this is what we should be striving towards. So right now, what we need to do is exert our effort, strive in the day by fasting and strive in the night by praying, these are the two jihads of the month of Ramadan that he had of the fasting in the day, and the Jihad of the pm in the night. And the person who struggled in the day and in the nights of Ramadan. Then in sha Allah, Allah will give him this reward in Jana, the real life because Ramadan, what does it do? Basically, it kills your pleasures, doesn't it? I mean, it destroys your sleep, it
destroys your fun that you get from eating. It destroys it, literally. And it trains you for the rest of the year that learn to control your desire. Why? Because you're aiming for the home of desires, which is Jenna.
But Allah says low can we are alone If only they knew, because what happens? We forget this. We think that the enjoyment here is a real enjoyment and we pursue it and we strive for it. And in that process, we neglect the real enjoyment of the Acela and when they board a ship, this supplicate Allah sincere to him in religion, but when he delivers them to the land at once they associate others with him, so that they will deny what we have granted them and they will enjoy themselves, but they are going to know Have they not seen that we have made Makkah a safe sanctuary, while people are being taken away all around them. Even today, it's the safest place on Earth. Then in
falso, do they believe and in the favor of Allah they just believe and who is more unjust than one who invents a lie about Allah or denies the truth when it has come to him? Is there not in hell, a sufficient residence for the disbelievers while Latina gehad rufina Latina jahad rufina Lena Deanna home Solana, we're in the LA helemaal morosini one levina jaha delphina and those who strive for us, Lennar, the end mill home sabudana, we will surely guide them to our ways. We're in the LA helemaal morosini and Indeed, Allah is with the doors of good. Who is it that Allah helps Allah helps the more singing the righteous, who are the righteous, those who strive who struggle in Allah's way, who
strive and endeavor in his obedience, those who exert their maximum ability, strength, effort, resources, for whose pleasure for a loss pleasure, they're not striving
to please themselves, they're striving to please Allah. These are people who struggle in their lives. Who is a real Mujahid who is a Mujahid the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and Mujahid who Mangia had enough sir who feel for it. The Mujahideen is He who strives who struggles against himself in obedience to Allah, because the greatest struggle is against who, against our own selves. The greatest battle, that sometimes we have to fight is the battle against ourselves, that when we have to fight our sleep, when we have to fight, our urge to eat and drink, or when a person has to fight against a sexual urge, even this is a jihad, jihad. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said,
that Mujahid is the one who strives against himself, in what in obedience to Allah, meaning he is struggling, he's fighting himself, to make sure that he remains obedient to who to Allah subhanho wa Taala. He fights against himself to keep himself disciplined to keep himself firm in obedience to Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a single endeavor in Allah's cause in the afternoon, or in the for noon, is better than all the world and whatever is in it. Meaning when a person truly struggles in the way of Allah, in obedience to Allah, for the sake of his religion, to learn it, to spread it, to practice it, because practicing the deen is also a great jihad. I mean,
keeping that hijab on when people are making fun is really a huge struggle, huge struggle, performing the funner when no one is performing this fun, finding your sleep and keeping yourself firm in taraweeh that is a Jihad right in the morning, keeping yourself awake so that you can do they can have a lot this will be hot in the afternoon also engaging in the worship of allowing the body desires comfort, and indulgence in some kind of pleasure and enjoyment. This kind of jihad the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, It is better than all the world and whatever is in it, because Allah says one Medina jaha delphina, Lana De Anza, home Susanna, we will guide them to our ways, what does
it mean? That we will guide them to come closer and closer to us, we will guide them to greater and better opportunities, we will grant them firmness and stability in ways of truth. They will remain firm, they will not be unstable, they will not fall, they will not slip. Their striving will keep them firm, what do we want? We don't want to lift a finger and we want that we should be kept firm by some magic. But what do we learn here? We have to strive and when a person will strive than Allah who will keep him firm. And this noble deed of striving of struggling and Allah is winning. You know, forcing yourself to remain obedient even when you don't want to have it. You still force
yourself, you control yourself, this noble deed will bring a noble reward. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah will call Jana on the Day of Judgment, Allah will call Jana, meaning certain people will not have to go to Jenna Jenna will be brought to them was vifa tiljander demna, who will be brought near? So it will arrive with all of its beauty and its adornment. And Allah will say, Where are my servants? Where are my servants who fought in my way and were fought back? Those who were hurt in my way, and they strove in my way. Because sometimes struggling in allas way, that means that a person is physically hurting, emotionally mentally exhausted, he feels like he's
abused. Right? The body is being abused. Literally, you feel your body breaking apart, especially when your sleep pattern is disturbed not for one night or two nights or three nights in a row. But now on the law for over a week. What happens by the end of five, six days you feel like you're being torn apart. You're being broken apart and you wonder if you'll ever feel normal again. So what happens? Allah subhanaw taala will say Where are those people?
Oh, my servants. enter Jannah Allah will say, all my servants were like this enter agenda. So they will enter agenda without any hisab they will skip all of the stages.
Have the difficulties of the Day of Judgment, and they will enter agenda without any hisab. Remember, no matter what we have in this world, it is temporary. How much can we enjoy it? even sleep? How much can we enjoy? How much? Just for a few years, even food? How much can you enjoy just a little bit? So what we need to do is whatever time, ability, life resources, strength capacity Allah has given us, let's use it for who's sick for the sake of Allah. I mean, think about it. Don't disturb our sleep patterns when we travel to a different part of the world. Don't we go through that jetlag, don't we? We do, right? Why? Why don't we do that? Because we want to enjoy. We want to go
visit family and friends and have a vacation. So we do it for this world, then why not jet lag a little bit, for the sake of Jenna. But our night's sleep is too precious to us sometimes. And we don't want to stay awake for even to even too little cause and pray. The return is for which we can earn up in thought a heap of reward, which is better than the world and whatever is in it.
And the promise of a low over here is that Indeed Allah is with who those who do sand in the Lucha Lama Island mursaleen This is a lost promise.
And who is a more sin? The one who when he works for Allah, he worships online, he gets tired. He doesn't complain. He fasts he doesn't complain praise doesn't complain. And when a person remembers that his Lord's help is with him. Then the work also becomes easy. Sooner to room.
v minus Eenie,
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim In the Name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. Alif Lam Meem. What about your room, the Byzantines have been defeated. The Romans, they were the Christians, and the sympathies of the Muslims were with them in the nearest land, but they after their defeat will overcome meaning soon they will overcome their enemy and who are their enemy, the Persians and the Persians were mushnik. And of course, the sympathies of the mushrikeen were with who, with the Persians, the builder is Sunni, within three to nine years, meaning within just a few years, what will happen, the Romans will have been defeated right now, within three to nine years
they will defeat their enemy right now the suffered defeat. Soon their defeat will turn into victory. Now we learned that in the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, this is still before the higit off, because throughout the room is a murky surah when the Romans were defeated, the Muslims became sad. Why? Because the Romans were closer in faith to the Muslims. So these verses were revealed that Do not be sad. These wins and losses they happen in life. And it's just a matter of time when things will change, when circumstances will change. Why, because within a few years, this loss will turn into victory again,
to Allah belongs the command before and after meeting when the Persians won, then this happened with Allah's permission, and when they will be defeated very soon. Again, this will happen with Allah's permission, and when the Persians will be defeated, then what will happen that day the believers too will rejoice. Why will they rejoice Venezuela, in the victory of Allah because of the help of Allah. So over here, a prediction is being made that very soon within
three to nine years what will happen? The Romans will be victorious against their enemy. And on that same day, the Muslims will also be happy. Why? Because they will be given victory by Allah also. And when is it that this happened, the Battle of better that when the Romans finally defeated their enemy, the Persians, what happened? That is the time when the Muslims also defeated the mushrikeen in the battle off,
which was the first battle. Right now when these ayat were revealed, there was no scene of Muslims defeating them wish nickim but Allah subhanaw taala is giving them good news that stay hopeful, because you see, this is something very normal, that a war happened somewhere else. Forget about a war, a match happens, a cricket match happens, okay? All right, or like a soccer match or something like that. And what happens, people are feeling sad, or our team, you know, they're closer to us in faith after all, or they're closer to us in ethnicity. After all, they suffered loss, and we're feeling sad about it. Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us a lesson from this, that where one team
loses, and the other wins, don't think this win and loss is eternal. It's not forever. Very soon, this win will turn into a loss and this loss will turn into a win, it's just a matter of time. Because this is the reality of this world. Nothing is permanent, everything changes in this world. What you should really be concerned about is the loss of the orchestra and the wind, the gaining of the orchestra. The real losers are those who end up in hell. And the real winners. The real achievers are those who make it to Jenna. And over here, we are also being given hope, that at a time when you see your favorite team losing, or your favorite team winning, be hopeful that
inshallah Allah will also grant you victory alone will also help you in the challenges that you're facing. Because every day what happens night comes, and the next day is a new day, the date changes. Isn't it amazing? That the year 2000 will never come back again. Isn't it amazing? When I find this so amazing. As a child, even I would reflect that, you know, this date is just for today. It's just for today, you know, when you see your teacher writing that date on the board, right? You wonder when is it going to come again, that date will never ever be written again on the board. That's it, it's gone. Meaning things will certainly change. So be hopeful. Even when you're suffering from
loss. be hopeful. What you need to do is don't remain in sadness over the temporary loss that you've suffered. rather have hope in Allah's health and strive for conditions that will bring about the help of Allah. This is what we need to focus on. Strive for that situation that will bring about unless help
he gives victory to whom he will and he is the Exalted in Might the merciful. It is the promise of Allah, what are the law, a law does not fail in his promise, but most of the people do not know. So what happens when they suffer a temporary loss, they despair, saying things which are inappropriate about Allah, what we need to do is we need to correct our situation, because Allah is not unfair, his decisions are not unfair, his promises true. We have to make ourselves worthy of Allah's promise of help. Most people do not know. What do they know, then they know what is apparent of the worldly life, meaning their entire focus is where in this worldly life for them, the winning here and the
losing here is all that matters. But they have the hereafter are unaware. They don't care about the real loss and the real Win, win amiata fucka roofie and foresee him Do they not contemplate within themselves? They should contemplate inside themselves not just the body, but their souls, their essence, that Who are you? What are you? What are you doing here? Think about yourself. Allah has not created the heavens and the earth and what is between them except in truth and for a specified term. And indeed, many of the people in the matter of the meeting with their Lord are disbelievers Have they not travelled through the earth and observed how was the end of those before them? They
were greater than them in power, and they plowed the earth and built it up more than they have built it up. And their messengers came to them with clear evidences and Allah would not ask
have wronged them, but they were wronging themselves. So McKenna occupat alladhina Assa Oh. So,
then the end of those who did evil was the worst consequence. Because remember, what we do is what we get. If we do evil, then the consequence will be evil. If we do good, then the end will also be good, because they denied the signs of Allah and used to ridicule them, Allah begins creation, then he will repeat it, then to him, you will be returned. And the day that our appears, the criminals will be in despair, despair, they will have no hope. They'll be worried that we never thought about this day, we never prepared for it. We were consumed by the worldly life, when Amir cola who menchaca him schufa and they will not be for them among their alleged partners, any intercessors and
they will then be disbelievers in their partners, and the day that our appears that day, they will become separated. On the day of judgment, people will be separated from each other. And as for those who have believed and then righteous deeds, they will be in a garden of Paradise delighted, they will be together, they will be delighted This is real success. But as for those who disbelieved and denied our verses and the meeting of the Hereafter, those will be brought into the punishment to remain. So the real worry should be of what what is the state of my Eman And what is the state of my Arnold silence for Super Han Allah hanaa term sunova hanaa to be hoon. So Exalted is Allah, Exalted
is Allah meaning do this be glorify Allah, He is worthy of glorification and praise when you reach the evening, and when you reach the morning, when you reach the end of something. And when you begin something, what will happen the fifth summer what you will love, and to him as Do you all praise throughout the heavens and the earth, no matter where in the world you are, what position what circumstance what situation you may be in, were in the sky and the earth no matter where you are. Allah is deserving of praise and Exalted is He at night and when you are at noon, meaning no matter what you're going through in your life, gloom Doom whatsoever, Allah is deserving of praise in the
noon, and in the night. He brings the living out of the dead and brings the dead out of the living and brings to life the earth after its lifelessness He is the one who brings about these changes. So how could you despair in his promises, and thus Will you be brought out so all power strength is with him, you cannot run and hide from him, even when you die, he will bring you back to life. And other signs is that he created you from dust? Then suddenly you were human beings dispersing? Adam and Howard were just do and then what happened? Look at this earth. Where is that part of the world where you will not see human beings. They're everywhere from the forests to the ice fields. I mean,
for the most wet places and the most dry places, isn't it? You find people everywhere. Why? Because this is a miracle that how Allah has spread people throughout the earth dispersing
