wa sallahu wa salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Marina Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
My dearest brothers and sisters in Islam, I received a message
from a brother
and I'm just going to read that message out to you.
Struggle tofik by
this is my, probably my last message to you.
lie here waiting
for my last breath to go away.
This is probably the last time I'm going to be able to write to anyone and I thought I'd write to you so that perhaps when you teach your classes
and when you give your lectures you can remind people
of this last lecture of mine
You have known me for a long time
I've just been a very basic Muslim,
tried to do my prayers.
Tried to fast whenever Ramadan would come.
Try to say masala did Hajj once in my life.
Yeah, I had children but never really looked after them. I had a wife.
She wasn't the most righteous person I never really, really chose because of that.
And my children grew up not knowing much about Islam.
And as I wait here,
for the bell to go off as my life will end
dying of pancreatic cancer
of which the doctors have said I cannot survive beyond this week.
As a wait for the angel of death.
I have only one word that comes in my mind.
And that is regret.
I just have this tremendous regret that there's so many things I wanted to do. You know,
I wanted to memorize the Quran and never did so.
I wanted to go for Hajj every year but I never did that.
I wanted to hug my mother but I never did that.
I wanted to teach my children, Islam the Quran, get them to be righteous people. But I never did that.
I wanted to have the chance to have one more Ramadan.
But I'll never get that.
I wish I could be in Harlem now. But I never get that chance.
I wish I could know some versus the enterocyte but I don't know anything except the fact they have and one or two other suitors that I recite every day.
All I can think of is huge regret.
No one will remember me except you. And perhaps my own family if they have time. Before the divide up my wealth.
My friends have left me
my family will not remember me.
I will have left nothing in this world of good
and bad Allah. All I will have done
is just added another grave on this earth.
I am your brother,
your Muslim brother
My brothers, my sisters, Islam I received a lot of messages like that.
Not all of them are from people who are about to die.
But certainly the common theme of every single person that I have spoken to
that come to the end of their life, and they have not done what they really should be doing and they should be persisting on doing.
It's this common word called regret. They are full of regret, but Allah
I wish I had done this. I wish I had done that. I wish I would do that I wish I could have done so much.
But Subhanallah they have forgotten
that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them a tremendous life, full of wealth, full of time full of youth.
Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them that opportunity but Allah yet they never really took it.
My brothers my sister in Islam, this message that I read for you is from a patient of mine in the hospital, Gold Coast hospital. So Panama
This is a brother that I used to know that accepted Islam, many many years back a new Muslim. However, he never really practiced Islam. He never really studied never really learned he never really did much with his life except that he just led his life like the vast majority of us
how many of us can remember someone who has not who is not alive today? This Ramadan? Can anyone remember somebody?
Put up your hands can you remember someone one person at least the someone that you remember what law he that has not attended? I can see a couple of brothers of minds panel I haven't seen for a long time. I mean, Mashallah, I thought I'd never see you. I'm sure you can remember people.
I'm sure God can remember people that perhaps we saw last Ramadan and we will never see this Ramadan.
My brothers, my sisters, Islam.
We don't have to worry about the Day of Judgment. We really don't.
Because ultimately, it's the grave that is a first position before the day of judgment. As man what the law needs to say what worries me is not the era. What worries me is not jahannam and the Day of Judgment. What worries me is my first night in the grave.
My brothers my sister in Islam, the first night in the grave is the worst night.
It is the night where our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam promised and he swore by Allah saying the following. What did he say?
He said while upon Oh, Hiya, Elijah. It has been revealed to me. This is authentic hadith in Bukhari, he said by Allah, it has been revealed to me and
that you will all be tested in your grades. Clary Boone, our missile Akari women, fitness and mercy had the job, that you will all have the test and the punishment and the pain and the sorrow
of something similar to the fitness the test and the trial of the job.
So my brothers and sisters in Islam, it is irrelevant whether the job will meet him in this world or not. The same level of trial will come to us in the grave. And that is on the very first night. On the very first night, my brothers and sisters Islam is when we will feel the reality of the grave.
My friends, everyone thinks that death is easy. I swear, but a lot of where this comes from, death is never easy. Death is never easy. I've never found a patient of mine that just passes away in peace. I've never found one patient passed away in peace. They'll always gurgling at the end of their death. We have to give them hydrazine bromide or medicine to stop the gurgling
as they're passing away. Do you know why? Because of the secretions in their voice, we give the highest in bromide, which is a
a drug that basically decreases the secretions in the throat. Because we can hear them gurgling and it's very disturbing. It's very disturbing. So anyone who's passing away chronically, from anything chronic acutely, of course, someone who just die straight away a heart attack, that you don't hear anything. You don't hear how they're dying. But people who are passing on slowly, like from cancer, or from heart disease that is prolonged.
They die a terrible death. I have never seen one patient of mine who dies and easy death. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said an authentic hadith
in a lil mo de la Murat was invalid Mattila Sakura. Verily death has his trials very early death has its pain.
Very early death has his trial and very defenses playing. Do not ever ever think that you're going to have an easy death somehow. Oh, you should have seen him. He passed away so peacefully. What are you talking about? How do you know he passed away peacefully when our professor Salah who knew the truth said very early death has is paying pay early death has its trials.
My brothers my sisters in Islam.
Truly Allah subhanho wa Taala created us and we are in our third of our five
different stages. First, Allah subhanho wa Taala conceived the first in his knowledge. Secondly, Allah subhanho wa Taala created us in the womb of our parents.
third stage is in this world, the fourth will be in the grave.
And the fifth will be in the Hereafter, the eternity of the hereafter.
Now, guess what, guys, with this life of 70 years, we're going to have to purchase a hereafter
with this life for 60 or 70 years and our Prophet said that my alma will live for 60 or 70 years of authentic hadith in Bukhari, you won't live beyond that. Yes, one or two of us might successfully live till 80 or 90 or 100, very rare. But because you're a Muslim, and because your cultural practices, your food practices are quite similar, you will probably die at the age of 60 or 70, or maximum 80 if we can keep you alive
by some mercy from Allah.
But Allah you won't live beyond that.
How many of you are already 4050 years old, I am 35.
I know I have less than
probably 1020 years before my bones start aching before my chest starts hurting. Because my breath becomes difficult.
before traveling becomes unbearable. Before I need more sleep, before I have to take three or four pills everyday just keep my body healthy.
I know I've only 1015 years of productivity in my life left. I have only 15 years to do something for this dunya I've only 15 years. If Allah doesn't give me death before that, I have only 15 years but law before which I must make my mark I must leave a legacy on this world.
Is there anyone amongst you who has that feeling as well? This feeling that you that you that your life is ending and that by law you will not have that chance ever again.
My brothers my sisters in Islam, I swear by Allah
as Allah is my Lord. I have not seen a single patient of mine except that they have regret every one of them I remember this old man 70 years old, German national living in Australia
and the man was so frail every three every three four days would make him better and then he would come again with some infection or some disease
that's like come on man. Just go to a nursing home I used to tell him
so he used to say but you guys look after me better than a nursing home nursing home the nurse is just going to give me medicine feed me whatever and then just gonna put me what happened you child my child doesn't look after me anymore where is he is discovered some girl and they've run off.
So do you have anybody no one at all.
Then I tried to comfort him and I said you know what? It's alright make you've had a good life. You know how we say in Australia. We've had a good life. You've got a good innings. We say we've got a good innings a good set of games.
He said but I don't want to die. Why not? Because there's nothing after it.
Nothing after it.
So this man isn't this deep depression,
deep depression because there's nothing else after it.
And for each one of us, my brothers Islam. We have those people who also think this has nothing after it or are we have those people who think that but Allah there is so much tremendous blessings after it.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam promised us promised us out of every 1000 people 999 will go to jahannam.
He said an authentic hadith and Muslim out of every 1000 people 999 will go to Johanna.
According to one report.
Some of the scholars said according to one report that this refers to Jews and Jews
and other scholars such as Eben Hatcher, and others said no.
This refers to every single human being Muslim and non Muslim out of every 1999 will go to Johanna.
And if they don't go to jahannam, they will be thrown into it only to be taken out. But every now every 919 out of every 1000 will go to Johanna.
Do you know in the authentic hadith in Bukhari,
a man stood up from the Sahaba Sahaba right.
Everyone Sahaba you know who the Sahaba they are the best of the best, right? acerbic. Guna Sabu. Right. So no Sahaba stood up on that Friday. And the Prophet someone's giving a talk and the Prophet Some said today you will not ask
about anything except that I will tell you. So the Sahaba stood up and he said, You are a pseudo law where is my place in? in the hereafter? Where will I be?
What do you think the Prophet said? In the authentic hadith in Bukhari? He said, Johanna,
your place will be the jahannam.
This was to a profit of his this was to a Sahaba office.
Are we deluding ourselves? Well, why are we deluding ourselves, brothers and sisters? Are we thinking that we are going to be going to go to some really great place? Like those two people in Surah Kahf that a lot talks about? Have you heard of the story of Soraka, those two people, one of the one that had given a huge boost and a huge booster and a huge garden, it was an amazing garden. Because the garden Allah says in Surah Kahf, that that garden gave its fruits twice a year, not once a year, like every garden, but twice a year. It was so amazing that it was a garden, between which a river flowed, surrounded by date palm trees, watered by Allah and provided water by that beautiful
river that ran in between the garden
It was so amazing that he would enter his garden
and he used to say what my other non tabetha the other I don't think this will ever finish.
And then he used to say well, if the to LRP and if I go back to Allah lagina Hydra minimum column I will fall back better than this. But Allah there is no single human being amongst us except things like this, unfortunately. How many of us think like this? Wow, look at the welfare has given us Allah really must love me.
And really, even if I were to die now, I think Gemina will be even better for me.
The whole arena waiting for me.
Gemini, Gemini is waiting for me. This is what we feel in our heart.
My brothers, my sisters in Islam, if Gemini is waiting for you, ask Allah for death right now.
If you think you're going to join now, ask Allah for death right now. ask Allah for death.
ask Allah for death right now.
If you're truthful,
but you are lying to yourself. You don't believe it in your heart.
If you believe it in your heart, ask Allah for death right now.
Allah challenges the Jews in the Quran. Because the Jews are the ones who think that they are going to go to gentlemen automatically as soon as they die. Allah says, cool, man, no, no No to
say to them, oh Mohammed says Allah.
ask Allah for death if indeed you are truthful.
ask Allah for death, my brothers and sisters Islam.
Rather, each and every one of us knows we have not earned genma yet.
Each and every one of us knows that Allah subhana wa Taala has not written for us yet we cannot have that guarantee as yet. We know that in our heart worker in San Juan, de basura, Wel, l comma euro. Verily mankind is ever a witness over himself. Even if he gives excuses. We ourselves our own souls are enough for witness over our own actions and deeds. We don't need anyone else to tell us we don't need the book to tell us. We know what we have done.
We know how much we have done and how little we have good we have left on this earth. We know this, my friends. This is why we don't dare to ask for death. This is why we are afraid of doing anything that might speed up our death. Because we are afraid we have not earned Allah's mercy as yet.
So my brothers and sister Islam, what if this is your last Ramadan?
What if this is your last Ramadan? What will you do?
If these days were the last days of Ramadan? Did you ever have the last letter to Qatar? How would you spend it?
My brothers, my sister in Islam, is there anyone amongst us except that he feels empty in his heart? That there is something that he that he still needs to do some core and that he wants to memorize some people that he needs to help? Some excuse that he needs to earn from Allah subhanho wa Taala Is there anyone amongst us, except that we must feel like this?
My brothers and my sisters in Islam.
The problem with all of us is because of the world that we live in.
It is because that although we are meant to have the world in our hands, unfortunately it is not in our hearts. The same world that we are meant to control has now entered and crept through our veins directly into our hearts until it is part and parcel of our hearts. Do you know what the pious predecessors used to say?
They used to say that the love of this world and the love of the hereafter are like two scales in the heart of a believer. When one side of the scale becomes heavy, the other side becomes light
When the other side becomes heavy, the other one becomes light. If you love the hereafter you will love this dunya less. And you will if you love this world, you will love the offeror less.
And by Allah you only need one example to prove which one you love more. Shall I give you a test? which you will all show me how exactly how much you love this world? And but Allah says the test of Sophia Anna 30 Sophia 30 said
if you want to ask somebody how much you love this world compared to the Hereafter,
then ask them how much food do they cook
when a rich man comes to the house compared to when a poor man comes to the house? Yes, Allah
will lie will lie this one hurt me hit me like a knife in my heart. How truthful was the Fiona 30
isn't a true brothers How much do you cook when you know someone wealthy is coming? Doesn't matter whether you're going to get food from you have money for him or not wealthy Oh my you must be really wealthy when you know what wife cooked chicken and rice and meat and fish.
Make sure there's three or four dishes a poor guys coming. It's all right so I don't have to cook them much one one dish is enough. Just one biryani that's enough.
How much do we love this world? Every one of us I'm sure will answer. Every one of us will show surely answer that but a live rich man comes to a house we cook more food.
Isn't that right?
Let's be truthful. I want to see a show of hands. How many people I will put up the first person with my hand that I would have cooked more if a rich man came. Come on, show me your hands, truthful, be truthful, will lie be truthful. Now,
position before you rectify yourself is to recognize the mistake. Recognize there is a fault. Okay, this is 50% of rectifying and errors to first of all recognize that we mistaken
that but Allah unfortunately, we love this dunya too much. We become too attached to it. We judge people according to it.
We value people according to how much they've achieved.
And we love this dunya too much you love the hereafter. And this is what is shackling us to this world.
My brothers, my sisters in Islam, ask yourself a second question.
And that second question is this how many of you can 100% say Allah is happy with me now?
How many of you are sure Allah is happy with you right now?
How many of you are sure that you have definitely done a deed for which Allah subhanho wa Taala will never ever punish you?
How many of you can do that?
I'm telling you, no one can. No one amongst us. If you are sure about this, that you have, you might as well you might as well just die
because that's the best state to be in a less happy with you just die right now brother. ask Allah for death straightaway.
But But Allah there is no one amongst us who can guarantee that.
My brothers, my sisters in Islam, this question of Allah being happy with us. And Allah subhanho wa Taala wanting Jana, for us is a question that must come to every one of our minds.
The greatest of the Sahaba
the greatest of the Sahaba were those people who used to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala so much.
The greatest of the Sahaba were the ones who are truly worried that this would be the last Ramadan.
It was reported that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu used to say that I wish I was a twig that was cut off and eaten up a twig of a tree that was cut off and eaten up. And this is Abu Bakr The one who was promised gentlemen,
it was Mr. rhodiola. And when you read the verse in the Quran, we're in the middle of illawarra, Doha, there is no one amongst you except that he is heading for it heading for what jahannam according to the Tafseer or even a bus that he fell into a coma for one month.
It was the Sahaba I shall have the allowances for the sisters in Islam. So listen, sisters, it was the eyes it was a shot of the Aloha, who has to bear the Aloha who reported that I passed by the head of Asia. After the sun had risen and Virgil had fled the finished, sun had risen. And 10 minutes after sun rising Asia had started her salah and she was reciting the verse of the Quran. You know what versus reciting
for manola, who Elena will walk on the moon.
And Allah had blessed us, Allah forgive us and Allah, Allah saved us from the terrible torment and she was crying.
And then I went to do all my day to day work. And I finished my day to day work around the whole time before the whole event, I came around towards the masjid and I found I should still reciting the same verse and she was still crying for Manila, who Elena will Kannada.
And Allah blessed us had mercy on us and he saved us from the terrible fire.
My brothers, my sisters in Islam.
There is no one amongst us here, except that Allah has already written our name for Jana or Johanna, no one.
No one amongst us except Allah has already put our place for gender agenda.
You know that. believe that? This is what our Prophet said. So, the prophets Allah seldom said when he when Allah subhanho wa Taala created human beings. He created a group. And he said, I've created this group for Jenna. And then he separated another group. And he said, I've created this group for Johanna.
And when Molly been dinner, one of the great Sahaba, one of the great tambourine, he read about this ad, it was reported that he used to pray every single night, standing up at night, and he will grab his beard like this. And he would say, Oh Allah, I know you have created people for Jenna and Johanna, I know you've already decreed who is going to go to Jelena and who will go to Jana or Allah tell me which group am I from?
Or Allah tell me which group am I from?
My brothers, my sister Islam, if this was your last Ramadan, how would you spend it? What would you do?
If tomorrow, the doctor came to you and said, You have terminal cancer,
and you will not live more than three months. And what Allah do this all the time when I was in oncology, the worst thing for me as a junior doctor was having to call patients and say they're about to die.
They always left the junior doctors with the dirty job.
Unfortunately, I was the one who had to counsel patients that they're gonna die,
I was the one who to tell them that we have to cut off half their body, otherwise they'll die, we have to cut their liver out if they cut their pancreas out, which might cut their tummy, for which they'll never be able to eat properly, which we'll have to feed them with a tube for the rest of their life, which is going to be six months maximum anyway.
Do they want that to happen?
My brothers, my sisters, now I'm not joking about this. There's so many Muslims and non Muslims, all of them suffering from all of this, the statistics show that one in four people will die of cancer. So one or four of you will die of cancer. So this statistics also show one in three people will die of heart failure, heart disease, so one of three of you, one of three of you, if not you, if not you then you. If not, you're not you the new
one of three of you will die because your heart will fail. And you'll have a tremendous pain in your chest and you will die from that.
that one in five of you.
So that's cancer is one in for heart failure. and heart disease is one in three.
that one in six of you will die from a serious infection
because of some other underlying disease, one in six. So if not you, you, you you then you
so choose which way you're going to die. It's always going to be something Not bad, not good.
Not going to be pleasant.
Someone who has a serious disease, like heart failure, probably has kidney failure.
Towards the end of their life for the last two or three years, they're not allowed to drink much water. I have an auntie who's dying of heart failure.
The problem with her is she cannot drink more than a cup of tea. If she drinks more than a cup of tea, then she ends up with more water and goes to a lungs and she's
dying of breath as if she is dying of drowning. So one in four of you will die like that.
one and three of you will die from tremendous pain. And because there'll be so much pain in your body so much pain, we're going to give you drugs. What drugs we're going to give you a lot of morphine and hyoscine bromide the thing that will stop you from gurgling all the time the gurgling of death as the law calls it and we're going to give you a lot of diazepam What is that? It's just to keep you completely sedated like you are much noon.
So one in three of you will die like that you will never have the chance to say la ilaha illAllah
you know people are going to remember this talking so that guy was getting
I probably am.
But I'm only telling you the truth.
I'm only telling you the truth.
One out of two of you will never have the chance to c'est la ilaha illAllah at the time of death, I swear by Allah you won't. How do I know? Because
the people who die of heart failure and people die of cancer, which if you add them all together will be approximately equal to half the people of you here.
If you die of heart failure, you will die from either one of two ways. sudden heart attack, suddenly heart attack, you will not have the energy to even say anything. Sudden pain from you to go down on the earth and you'll just die. Okay? Or it will be a very, very bad death of water in your lungs. So you'll be breathing very hard. This is one way of dying. You will never have the chance to say Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. No, you will not. The second type of person is someone who is dying of cancer, that person will die because of a lot of drugs that we are giving you. And because of drugs, we're trying to keep you comfortable away from the pain. The drugs will put you to sleep. And you'll
be in constant coma until you die.
So one in two of you will never have the chance to say la ilaha illAllah
you want medically speaking, there is no way no way you have a chance. The only chance you have my brother and my sister in Islam is for you to say it now.
only chance is to say it now to make that change now.
If this was your last Ramadan, this is the time to do it.
The problem is my friends this world that we live in.
Do you know what the pious predecessors they said?
They said beware of the magic of this world. For indeed the magic of this world is worse than the magic of haruta marut
where the magical harlowton model the two angels sent to Babylon
was to do with magic that was separate between the husband and his wife. The magic of this world separates between a slave and his Lord
and in Dubai we must feel that
how beautiful is this world?
dunya in its amazing glory even a non Muslims are surprised when they come to this country.
My brothers my sister Islam, this has the potential of taking us away from Allah subhana wa tada and it has how many of us truly have connected with Allah subhanho wa Taala
how many of us truly can confidently say but Allah
there is no more anything that I can do. If I know death is tomorrow
or are you have those people who can say definitely I can do more?
If you're of those people who say I can definitely do more than you know what the answer is do it now. There is no good time to give sadaqa The time is now there is no good time to stop praying The time is now there is no good time to read the Quran time is now there is no good time to start memorizing Quran The time is now. There is no good time to look after orphans The time is right now. There is no good time to call your mom and say sorry the time is right now. Caller now as a mom, I'm sorry mom, forgive me mom.
There is no good time
to say to your friend that you have blemished and harmed. I'm sorry, my friend. The time is right now.
There is no good time at all my friends The time is right now.
The time must be now.
Because but Allah we don't know when we're going to live and when we're going to die.
And my friends, the thing that we must be worried about is the next deed that we do. The very next day that we do will be our end. Because you see there's one heavy throw solar system that gives tremendous hope. At the same time it gives tremendous fear.
One Hadith That is amazing. It causes tremendous hope in the heart but it causes tremendous fear as well as well. What is that heavy?
That heavy? Is the heavy that says in normal Amala behati rarely actions or bites ending it's heavy that causes me to have tremendous fear, yet tremendous hope Ramallah tremendous hope that if I can do a good deed next it might be my last and so Henry la malmark last year was the best deed and Saul hamdulillah Allah will remember my last thing I'll be raised up on my last thing hamdulillah
but causes me tremendous fear that if I go back and I haven't learned anything, if I go back and I don't change if I go back and go back to my last routine
That I was on.
It may be my death comes to me when I'm just an average Muslim. And that is it. My actions are judged by my average being that average Muslim and the last point of my death.
That's the fear.
The fear is, it doesn't matter what happened in the past. The hope is also that it doesn't matter what happened in the past. The fear is that it matters the sin that you're going to do the hope is also that B is nilla. The next good D that you're going to do will be your final ending.
That is the real fear and that is a real hope.
It will tie in Rahim Allah, He says a noonien.
He says what law he Moksha Luba in the halabi la de Sevilla laughs We will move Ronnie, what are kinema aka insula who hadn't called him into him and he will go and he will lie. I don't fear my past deeds, my past sins, for indeed I've repented to Allah and Allah loves to repent, Allah loves to forgive.
However, what I fear is that in the very next deed that I do, my heart will cease to command by this poor and by this revelation.
That's the real fear. The real fear is that the very next thing that you do will be your last deed and that will be how your death is sealed.
That's the real fear, my friends, and that nothing that you've done in the past will ever matter.
The prophets are seldom said, voila, there is no one amongst you,
except that he will do good deeds all his life.
And that which has been written will overtake him, so he will do some bad deed, and then he will have his death and that will be his jahannam.
And there is no one amongst you, who will do bad deeds all their life. And then before he dies, he will do one good deed and at that point, his death will come. And so he will go to gentlemen.
This is the fear and this is the hope as well.
This is the hadith of fear the hadith of hope.
So my dearest brothers and my sisters in Islam if you knew that this is your last Ramadan, what would you do?
Wouldn't you love to leave a legacy on this earth? Wouldn't you love to die knowing Allah is happy with you?
Wouldn't you love to die knowing that there is nothing that you can conceivably think that you are actually doing a proper scene? Wouldn't you love to die in a state where you are completely at peace?
Because you see, it doesn't matter. There is no two. There is no more position in the hereafter. There's only two places you can go to. It's clear. There is no five places 10 places three places. No, there's only one or two places either Jen now Johanna. That's it.
You either gonna go clearly to Jenna or you're clearly going to Johanna. And if you haven't earned enough to go to Jenna, you're definitely going Jana.
And what is amazing is sometimes when I hear Muslims are talking about john adams only for a small amount of time.
It's like poo. You know, when you touch something hot, it's like ooh, is that what you think Johanna is gonna be like, Allah is gonna dip you in just take you out.
Is that what you think? It's like? I once asked my chef, a chef, how long is the minimum time of Johanna? Is there any evidence in the Quran or in the Sunnah of the minimum time with Johanna for anyone that has done a deed that is destined to go to Johanna, minimum time duration. So our chef, may Allah have mercy upon his name was Abdullah a to a jury he was an encyclopedia of the field. We used to call him the encyclopedia. So he said tofik I've never ever read a minimum position except one verse in the Quran in surah, another where Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the minimum position, or the minimum time that has ever been reported in any Hadith any verse of the Quran. What
is that? What is that verse in Johanna McCann at mill sada little Hina la be seen a fee ha Baba. What did he say? He said in a Johanna mechanicville sada verily Johanna, is a Mossad, a place of ambush. Lita Hina, Abba, a place for those people, those people who have been evil and sinful, a place of ambush for them littorina urba a place of dwelling for those people who have been sinful in this earth. Then Allah says, Larbey Thien, Ophea Baba salam, they will dwell there where they're in for a harbor. So our chef said, a harbor comes from the word hot tub. Hot Tub as a lesson. Alba Sri Rahim Allah said, a laptop is 1000 million years from our time.
So the least duration Allah has ever mentioned in the Quran
is a horrible clue.
Rule of hakob and a half is 1000 million years of our time.
My brothers, my sister in Islam, Allah
is amazing in his reward, but he is very serious in his punishment.
Allah is very serious in his punishment very serious. You've got to remember Allah is the one who created jahannam. You've got to remember Allah created
fire, that can be so hot. You've got to remember Allah can punish people very seriously. Have you seen anyone mangled up in a car crash? I see them all the time being in the emergency department. Someone mangled up in a car crash completely smashed up. So Subhan Allah, Allah, Allah gave the trial to that person.
Subhana Allah. And you think if this is the punishment in this world or a trial in this world, only Allah knows what it can be in the hereafter.
So my beloved brothers, my sisters in Islam, if these words are not enough to move you into action, and interchange them by Allah, you are a very, very difficult person to change. And Allah have mercy on you because these words are not strong enough to change.
But perhaps the following will be enough to change you. And that is, knowing how much Allah subhanho wa Taala cares and knowing how much Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to be different.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the authentic hadith
he said man have been Lika Allah, Allah Holika woman curry Holika Allah curry hola Holika whoever loves to meet Allah Allah loves to meet him. And whoever hates to meet Allah Allah hates to meet him.
My brothers, my sisters in Islam, if the fear of Allah is not enough to move you to action, the lead the mercy of Allah be enough to move you to action.
Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us you're a u haul Insert all mankind. Ma Barbara Kabira Corinne what has taken you away from your Lord most high?
What has taken us away my brothers, my sisters Islam from the Lord, who has given us so much blessings? Furby Allah Europe bukhoma to cut the ban. Which of the blessings of Allah will you deny my friends?
k photographer una bella he will come to mama.
How can you disbelieve in sin against Allah, when you were dead? Allah gave you life filmer you need to come to my home, then he will give you death and then he will raise you up again to my Elijah, Georgetown and you will come back to Allah.
My brothers, my sister in Islam, remember Allah subhanho wa Taala His mercy and His love.
So if you're an authority, Rahim, Allah He said, I would never ever replace Allah with my parents on the day of judgment as my judge.
I will rather have Allah judge me rather than my parents. Because I know Allah loves me farther than that far more than my own parents.
How amazing is this statement of susiana 30? Do you truly believe Allah loves you more than your own parents? If you truly believe that, then be comfortable with Allah as your Lord, be comfortable with his home?
My brothers, my sisters in Islam, there is one answer I want you to remember. When Allah questions you on the Day of Judgment, do you know what that answer is? When Allah brings out the books and says Mohammed, Josie,
so on so amid
tofik you did this, you did this, you did this, you did this. And it goes on for 1000s of hours talking about how many things we have done. What do you say? tofik? What do you say? I mean, what do you suggest? What do you say Mohammed? What do you say Ayesha?
I want you to have one answer. You know what the answer is? Or Allah guilty.
I acknowledge all my sins.
Don't argue back.
Because you know your soul knows how much you've done.
You know what you have done my friends? What kind of insanity Allah nuptse basura Allah made our enough's enough a witness over us We don't need anything else. We know what we have done. Oh Allah guilty, guilty.
So my brothers, my sisters in Islam come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
When was the last time you really connected with Allah subhanho wa Taala When was the last time you really felt Allah subhana wa
Allah, is there for you.
Are you working for a library?
If you're working for Allah, why the heck do you think someone else is paying a salary?
If you work for GE, does IBM pay your salary?
If you work for GE, does IBM pay your salary? Yes or no? No?
What is your problem that you think your risk is tied to this world of this dunya or this means that you have that's it. If you're working for Allah, that Allah pays your salary, national narrow sukumar your home that Allah says, National Zoo home ye accom how many times Allah says,
We are the reserve, we are the Lord, we are the one who provides.
If Allah you work for Allah, that Allah provides for you, not this bloody company that you're working for. It's only a tools and a means.
So why are you so afraid?
Why are you afraid? This world has shackled you so much because no, I have to do this. I can't do this. I have to work in this job. Because the job is paying my salary. It's not it's Allah paying the salary still. The job is just a means for you a tool for which you this will come to you.
But Allah, this risk would have come to you had this job not been there as well. Somehow the other the risk will come to
the hands will change. That's right. But the giver is still the same.
The Giver is still the same. So liberate yourselves my friends, liberate yourselves. If you work for Ge Ge pays your salary, not IBM.
If you work for Allah, Allah pays your salary, not people.
If you work for Allah, Allah for Allah, Allah will look after you not human beings.
Then liberate yourselves do that which is right. Work for the hero and Allah will look after you but Allah
Yes, Allah subhanho wa Taala provides for birds, but not in the nest.
Allah provides for the birds when they fly out.
We all doing that with flying out. But we are forgetting who really provides we forgetting is Allah who provides for the bird's eye we think it is so and so providing. So my brothers, my sister in Islam, liberate yourself from the shackles of this world. liberate yourself, the more I have liberated myself, the more wealth I have ever made.
And brothers over here know my situation. I was a medical student. My fourth year I gave it up. I have $200 only in my pocket when I went to Medina $200 and I bought a phone that was torn. I wish I kept that for 16 years it cost me it was actually 10 rounds and I paid six rounds to just shorten my job a little bit. That was my only thought that I had for eight months. This is a student of medicine medicine, who left a most lucrative degree and a lucrative job with parents who look after him,
too, to go to Medina to study there with only $200 in my pocket. I still remember I took my wife with me illegally. I took her
illegally I kept her
I used to live in this house that was full of rats 500 reals was a rent and I couldn't afford it but Allah because the government wasn't paying our salaries our students dividends at that time, because the price of oil was only $8 a barrel. Do you remember that time $8 a barrel.
It was in 1995 1990 1998. At that time, the price of oil was $14 a barrel 12. There was a lot like it is now at $90 a barrel $60 a barrel? No, very, very less. So the first people who wouldn't get paid is us.
I still remember we used to put water on the carpets and sleep on it because of the heat. We couldn't afford an air conditioner or even a fan.
Water on the carpets and sleep imagine having a wife from Australia growing up in Australia, who's been pampered by a parent sleeping in that sort of
sort of sort of bathroom. So sort of house.
We used to keep a food in our neighbor's fridge because we couldn't afford a fridge. Somehow by someone's mercy someone gave us an old fridge.
It will break down sometimes and we'll be alright sometimes. But it was okay because we only had two types of food. We used to buy bread and we used to buy tomato sauce. We used to eat bread with tomato sauce. You know the one real bread? You get the Somali bread here, don't you? Yeah the one real the hot dog type of bread
You get one real tomato sauce right? The chicken one year tomato sauce one.
I'm sure you do. So we just opened it up with the one real tomato sauce Mr. Eat that. Eight months we ate that. I still remember one someone came back from Australia.
I had came back from Australia and he bought 100 reals with him as a gift for me.
And I took that money. so amazed, I still remember.
And I went to my wife. And we said, let's go buy a chicken.
So we bought a chicken.
So I still remember the chicken in front of me and my wife 10 riyals a lot of money for us at that time.
And we ate and we ate and we ate and we ate and ate and ate and ate and ate and ate.
Like we were like eating like crazy. No one's talking, just eating. Then we looked and still have four chicken left. I
still have a chicken left. I still remember I still remember it still tell my wife. We covered the chicken up. She put it away into that stupid fridge of ours.
And she looked at me and I still remember what she said you know what she said? She said, Do you think we could do that again next week.
So hon Allah
two years after that, the internet came to Medina
and I used to have a website called Salafis Allah website where it had 1000 pages. I mean, remember the website? Yeah.
And I was the king of internet, because I knew more about internet in all of Medina than anyone else because I did that stuff. So I took my stuff and I showed it to people.
Then I made a free website for one share here, one shift there. Then I started charging money 2000 3000 reals, then I got the money straightaway bought a laptop. laptop at this time was very expensive, right guys? Remember, I bought a hp laptop?
Very expensive. 10,000 reals. Oh my god. Laptops at that time were disgustingly expensive. So I bought it 10,000 rounds, I still remember it. My wife was very angry. Why we need to buy this and that don't worry, I've got a plan. So I got the laptop, made myself a business card. I started speaking only English when I went to my my business deals. And I started charging money like crazy. How much 30,000 50,000 100,000 a child sometimes my largest project I charged 300,000 pounds 300,000 US dollars. It took me only about two weeks to do. Because I could charge what I wanted.
And I would take money like this to my wife and you know, slap her face with it. See how it feels.
My brothers and my sisters in Islam
Allah will test you initially when you want to work for his cause. Do you know why he'll do that?
Because Allah wants to first of all, remove every ASVAB away from you.
Allah wants to remove every single ASVAB away from you. Because he wants to show you that ultimately victory is from Allah.
So initially when you start to work only for the cause of Allah and you want to do something only for the cause of Allah Allah gives you straightaway some sort of difficulty and fucker and poverty. Why? Because he wants to remove every suburb other than Allah. Then once that's gone, then Allah has mercy come so you know definitely all of this is only from Allah.
I was perhaps the richest student in Medina, after the Marathi is of course where the government pays them big bucks. But I had to earn for it, but I think I made more money than them. I had my own custom designed car. No one could beat me from the STOP STOP sign.
I'm a speed freak.
So panela no one could beat me.
I was perhaps myself and also partly were the only two students we used to come to the lectures of our machines would sit there and I'd say yes what you doing I'm going to go to Hardee's I'll see you there. And we used to just pass by we'll sit down there and have a have a coffee and then we leave.
We will perhaps the richest students there he was to write books is to make websites.
So my brothers and sisters Islam, money comes to you. The provider is Allah if Allah has written for money will come to you doesn't matter where
it will come. The worst thing you could do was run after it. worst thing you could do is work for this world. Remember, you're working for Allah, Allah will provide you the money. If you're working for IBM. Then IBM pays the salary not GE if you work for Allah, Allah provides the salary for you. Allah will provide it for you have to believe it.
Do you truly believe you work for Allah? Ask yourself this question. Do you truly believe in your heart? How much do you truly believe
You know, another day, a few days ago, a chef who asked me that question that I will use of when you have mercy mission and that you need money. What's your fundraising strategy? He asked me. And I said, Okay, you know, we do this we do that we do this sort of thing and that sort of thing. We do fundraising here. And then he stopped me and he said, What about Allah?
Is there actually a fundraising strategy? Raise your hands to Allah.
And you know, Subhana Allah, it's like, he slapped me. He gave me a slap Billa he and he taught me about workqueue a lesson that I had never ever
And he told me the same thing if you work for GE, this is his quote. He said, If you work for GE, does GE pay a salary or does IBM pay your salary?
If you work for Allah, Allah pays your salary.
And then I thought about this. And I thought about how much I connect with Allah. Then I remembered my children. I have five kids, my friends,
and I want to tell you how they make dua to me. There are many when they asked me something. This is how they do it. Ibrahim, let me start off with the first one use of use of is my oldest one. I think the oldest children always a little bit
soft Is that correct? The first child always a little bit soft cries a little price too much. Is that correct?
I don't know. But I tend to find I was the oldest one. It was just too soft. I was just too soft and I will just know a little bit I'll start crying. So use of ICT says Baba Baba, yes. Can I buy that thing? What is the thing? PlayStation likes nice game, no use of I don't have money.
And he just make us that face to face. And he just turned away and he just shed one or two tears and that's it. Okay, this is how he asks me. Then comes Ayesha.
Ayesha is my next one. She's the eldest daughter. What does she do? boba? Yes, you're very nice, but when she comes She comes my hair touches my head. Well, lady, she's such an unbelievable Subhanallah she's gonna get everything from her husband anyway.
Mashallah, she's just everything touches me. So boba. How are you? Baba? Can I do anything for you? Like a glass of water? Like some juice? How about the energy test? takes my shoes have Ayesha What do you want? Baba Can I get that present from there? No, not now. I don't have money. Okay, well, but that's fine then she does go away nicely. Then comes Xena.
Look at how she makes dua to me. Make ask me something. What does she do?
What does she do?
She says boo boo boo boo boo. Yes. Um, this is a really nice toy. So there Can I please have it? Please? This is she's a very funny girl right like that.
She's seven years old and she's how she asked me. I said no, Dana. Okay. And then she just goes away. Right? Then this is Ibrahim.
Ibrahim doesn't talk. He just smiles soboba Yes.
All he does is smile and I know he's up to something naughty. Okay, just a smile as Abraham No. Okay. And he's still smiling and going away. Then the last one
Maria How does she asked? Three years old?
Who do you think is successful?
Who do you think is successful?
Best negotiator Who is it? Last one she gets it all the time? Because if she doesn't she's gonna kill me. She won't shut up.
I'm I'm gonna ask you this question. Why can't we ask Allah like a two year old child?
Why can't we ask Allah and make dua to Allah like that? Why?
And I thought about this look at how she gets everything from me all the time. When Allah loves that I make the the Prophet Some said Allah loves it when you make law Allah hates it when you don't make those are
the prophets and also some authentic hadith ma sushi and Allah Hema Accra Masha Allah, there is nothing more honorable to Allah than
the prophet and also said in authentic hadith and Muslim. He said, I just, I just wanted to add the most incompetent the people are those people who are not even capable of making the
Why can't we ask Allah like a two year old child?
Oh Allah, you are the Lord of the heavens of the earth. Oh Allah, you are
The richer and the poor. Oh Allah, I don't want to put my hands down on to the answer my da Oh Allah don't put my hands down until you answer a DA O Allah I beseech you, O Allah, O Allah, I need your help. Oh Allah. Allah, Allah give me Jana Oh Allah don't punish me Johanna. Oh Allah let me see your face will Allah write to me safety from the fire today?
Oh Allah Don't let me put my hands down until you answer my dua or Allah. I'm not gonna put my hands down until you answer my da. Do you know what the prophets who said?
He said Allah is ashamed of authentic hadith in Muslim. He said Allah subhanho wa Taala is ashamed
of his slaves when he raises his hands up to him to return it back cifra in Allah Allah study mean AB de da de la de. Anuradha husi for Allah is ashamed of his slave when his slave raises his hands up to him to return it back to him empty.
Subhana Allah, how amazing is that? Allah is ashamed. What an honorable King. What an honorable Judge what an honorable Lord he is.
My brothers and my sisters in Islam, ask Allah like a two year old child.
ask Allah like a two year old child, you will have everything you want.
ask Allah like you never asked before. Don't make like
a pinata when? I mean,
what will jannetty Mahal abrar mean? What the heck are you saying you don't even know? It's like, you know, Zeynep comes to me.
Please, please, please, please, please, Can I have it? No. So they suddenly go away. This is the way this isn't the way if they not only persisted, if you've only persisted Ibrahim only persisted if he only persisted they would get their way. But they didn't. Neither do we.
We are far too hasty, my friends.
Allah sometimes doesn't answer our door directly. You know why? Because he loves to make us make.
He loves to hear us, beseeching him and making dua to him. He loves it. That's why he waits, waits, waits waits before he answers it because he knows you're going to start making dough as soon as you get your thing.
So my friends connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala This is your chance. Nothing as strong as
nothing is as strong as though nothing is as strong as to do you know how many verses in the Quran against making the out to other than Allah? How many verses
500 verses one third or oma Allah, Allah has offered 500 verses like this.
In our own I mean don't lie.
How many verses I like that 500 verses of not making dua to anyone other than Allah. Do you know why? Because the scholars say that the art is the best of the better. Because Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said at the Mohali bad, though, is the heart and soul of the heart and soul of worship. And the thing that is common between all religions is though it's not Salah or Zakat, it's the Christians make dua to Allah to their gods. Jews make dua even Hindus make dough. So the common evader that is common to all religions is Torah.
So the greatest actor Eva is da da is more stronger than sujood as well as a scholar say how?
Well because it suits the job you're making to hit Oh, no here, but in the way you make though he rubia an O here and a smartphone. How is that? Allah hemanta bo Allah you are my Lord Halekulani. This is the Hebrew Baba
Yaga Buddha canister II It is only you that we worship and it is only that you that we seek help. And you're raising of of your of your hands to Allah This is the heat Hello here.
Man Rahim Jacobi Aziza mattina Jabbar yada yada you can This is the name of Allah This is so he's a smart surfer.
So can you see how you're joining all the elements of the hidden door? Can you see that?
In the same way you can make shift in all of these things and this is why shear can do it the worst of shear.
So my brother's asst slam, connect and come back to Allah azza wa jal with
this is the month of the this is the month in which Allah subhanho wa Taala will not reject our door, one door every single day. What do I have you made for today? And have you been hasty in your door
Are you truly making the call for Allah subhanho wa Taala as you should, like the two year old child, beg Allah Allah will not say no to you beg Allah, Allah will not say no to you, how many Hadith do we have? Where the Prophet says Salaam would say that? In an authentic hadith in Muslim, the prophets, some said,
and there was a quote, inside a Muslim, about a boy who was a shepherd. And he was a young boy and he has a shepherd. And the sheep were dying because it was very dry. So he raised up his hands, the prophets have said this boy raised up his hands and he made dua to Allah. And he said, Oh Allah, I'm not going to put my hands down until you answer my door IRB, or Allah, my sheep are dying, Allah, only you can save them will Allah give us rain? And so it started to rain.
It started to rain until until he gave us the analysis. The answer is, Why could we not also do the same?
My friends, if you truly believe a lie exists, if we truly believe we work for Allah, then you have a direct connection with Allah subhana wa Tada.
And if you make dua to Allah, Allah remembers you to himself. If you remember Allah, Allah remembers you to himself, it will pay him Rahim Allah. He says, if there was only one verse that was revealed that could show you the greatness of the law. Then this verse would be enough which though which verses that further guru nee as guru calm?
Remember me I will remember you yes and how powerful
Allah will remember you despite all of the affairs of the universe that he is looking after.
Allah will mention you to a gathering far better than the gathering. You mentioned Allah subhanho wa Taala in
so my brothers and sisters in Islam, now is the time to connect with Allah. a time in which by law, you are all focused on your deen. Now is the time to come back to Allah azza wa jal ask Allah for January we'll give it to you. ask Allah for good in this dunya and after Allah will give it to you. Ask Allah from your heart, not your tongues. ask Allah. You know many people that try to be very poetic in their
robina Tina Fey dunya Hasina filagra has not been added
in algebra, you know, they try to be really poetic. Even Kodama Rahim, Allah says in makueni, to be poetic, in a in your daughter intentionally, is mcru is disliked. Why is that? Because you're concentrating more on the words rather than on connecting with a light in your heart. Does that make sense?
And that's the muscala with people who just do the art without it coming from the heart. And you can tell when it comes from the heart when a person can't find the words. When you can't find the words that's when it's coming from your culture, the deepest part of your soul. So ask Allah
in a way that Allah only Allah knows what's in your heart.
So my brothers and sisters Islam, in conclusion,
ask Allah subhana wa Taala to remind us of his punishment,
at the same time to remind us of his beautiful justice, and His mercy.
And I asked everyone to remember one name of Allah subhanho wa Taala Do you know which name it is?
It's the name called alpha dude.
Allah subhanho wa Taala is alpha dude.
And what is the meaning of alpha?
alpha dude is the loving God.
Allah subhanho wa Taala loves his his creation.
Allah dude is a loving God. Allah subhanho wa Taala loves his creation.
The Prophet sallallahu wasallam once saw a woman running looking after her child, where is the child? Where is the child? Where is he? Where is he? Where is he suddenly finds the child and hugs the child kisses the child like black is found this this baby that has been lost for so long, quickly gives the child something to drink from a breast and caresses the child like this. Can you imagine that mother and the prophets have said well law he in Verily Allah is more merciful, more loving to his slave than this mother towards to a child.
Yes, well, Allah is waiting for us to come to him.
Allah is waiting for us to come to him. Fulfill rule of law, come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And don't ever be afraid of anything. Don't ever be shackled by anything. Remember, if you work for Allah, Allah gives the money not your not your business. Your business is just a means for it to so give and don't care. Give and don't care.
Work for line don't care, money will come. You are an intelligent human being. money will come whichever way you do it. wealth will come just work for the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Rasulullah sallallahu tell Bilal who had very little money, yeah, Bilal unfuckable I'll give Walla tuck Sharman dealership Alana, and do not be worried that the one who possesses the throne will ever withhold from you. So do not ever be wary, my friends that if you work for the cause of Allah, then ultimately but Allah that He will ever withhold from you. Allah is a possessor of the throne. If we all got together as the love for everything in this world, it will not take away from the kingdom of Allah, not even anything at all.
As like that needle dropped into the ocean, how much does it take out? That's it.
So my friends, ask, and Allah will give, ask, and Allah will connect with you ask, Allah will save you from the fire. And if this is your last Ramadan, the best thing you can do is to connect with Allah azza wa jal become his friend, by constantly remembering him, constantly coming back to him constantly thinking about him constantly keeping your tongue moist with Allah and is remembrance and that's it. Oh Allah, Oh Allah, have a conversation with Allah. And may this be your greatest deed upon which you pass away?
Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best.
I hope that insha Allah Allah that has opened her eyes to
having us work for
completely dedicated in this month of Ramadan. Insha Allah Medina
before we just go about with the question answer session, did you recollect if there's any questions that you have, we've got two mics here, one for the brothers in the aisle. We have one that is mobile with the sisters a cordless mic.
We'll take the questions now. inshallah The first question from the other side. If anybody has a question,
please line up and make sure that you say your name and your profession so that the speaker can show a loudhailer reply and respond to you accordingly.
If we don't have a question initially from the brothers which always happens, the sisters get a chance now.
also like to mention that Please keep your questions as much as possible to the subject for other anything at all then inshallah we have other opportunities that we will present to you but at the moment, put questions that are more on the topic, be specific, and try to save time so that the others can also get a chance to Sharma
I think the explanation may be very long, so I'll just put it to the point. Since
rather tofik mentioned about if this is our last Ramadan. sister wants us to maybe clarify to people or maybe tell them more about what's paradise like and what's held like to further soften our hearts towards this point.
I would request that you go and listen to my talk on on German and jahannam they are on google google video as well as YouTube and you can you can ask for it. It's a far more detailed one by in a very, very quick way.
I explained I think the lunia of him no pay him 70 verses about gentlemen. It's also on YouTube. Very beautiful point when we pay him about Jenna Subhana monterosa yada
yada who Aiden at Connor Lena Barker ramen Rahman Adamu Bonnie it's amazingly beautiful verses about
verses I just I think I will skip the hole in ones for obvious reasons. But, but Mashallah beautiful. So let me just summarize to you whatever Abraham Allah says, Abraham Rahim Allah states that and they're all from authentic IDs enable payment states the proof for it also is considered unique as well. He states that the people who will enter gender will enter gender in the form of the Father other muddying sort of salon and in the beauty of use of Alicia Salama Clint authentic Heidi has an ad from Rasulullah Salah they will enter Gemini in 120 rows. The first 80 rows will be from this oma so the other 40 rows will be from other nations. The Prophet system will be the first
person to enter and then the people will enter as soon as you enter. And when you enter. Your entrance will be according to the number of names the names that are stated on each door. So you will not be allowed to enter Gemini except
Through a particular gate, the gate that carries your name. If If more than one gate carries your name then you can choose which gate to enter gender through. When you enter Jenna straight away, there is a shower of perfume that comes out. So you can shower from that perfume, as a perfume comes out a shower of perfume comes and it fills you with beautiful, beautiful perfume, then it will pay him states and the that the servants of gender who are little boys and little girls, they will come with heavy brocades and they will dress you just as you enter gender with that. As you look up there will be rows of angels saying Salam and Salama saying Salam and salam to you. As soon as you walk
into Jana, there will be a group of servants, little boys and little girls that Allah has created to be our servants, they will come and they will offer you the very first dish that will offer you will be a very beautiful succulent fish that Allah subhanho wa Taala has prepared for you. So you will drink from that. And you will eat from that. As soon as you eat from that you want to drink something. So as soon as you want to drink something, it will pay for him. Allah mentions with authentic hadith, and the durations of even a bass that when you want to drink from one of the rivers of Jenna, straightaway, a spring will open up and the water will come and you just have to
open your mouth. And then you can start drinking. You can start drinking from the wine or the water or the milk or the honey whatever it is that you feel like drinking as you drink, you will look up in the sky and there'll be lightning in the sky. So you will ask your angels or angels What is this lightning in the sky? So the angels will say Don't you know? No, I don't what is it? It is your wives in general that are smiling. And as they smile it causes lightning in the sky as your Salah authentic hadith in Muslim men of the women and gentlemen the smiley causes lightning in the sky. Yes Allah. So as you walk you will see beautiful pebbles. You will see beautiful pebbles or rubies
and stones the most precious things, you will see gold and silver abounding.
That hadith of Allah the Quran mentions Khufu hada Nia, that the leaves in the trees are close. So it will pay you mentioned the Sierra even a bass of that verse, that when you see a tree and you feel like eating something, the tree will come in front of you, and you can take a bite. And when you see a bird in the sky, and you feel like eating it, the bird will come barbecued in front of you so you can eat it.
And also, Allah mentions as you work on your way into gender,
you will pass by a number of things. First of all the angels will ask you to recite, so as you recite your verses in the Quran, and the more and more Quran you know, you will go deeper and deeper into gender. They also mentioned that as you enter into one level of gender, Allah will ask you to go higher and higher, higher and higher. Why are you increasing me in my levels, because he will say this is the door of your son and your daughter for you, the door of your children for you. So have righteous children are brothers and sisters authentic hadith Rasulullah. Selim states that the one that will there is no Shiva, Shiva that is more on the Day of Judgment than the shefa of the parent
for the child and the child for the parents. So make your children righteous make up for your parents and make your children mcdow for you. Very important. So you'll be raised up leveling levels because of the of your children for you. As we go into general you will find rivers of handy and rivers of milk and rivers of wine and rivers of water. You will find beautiful, beautiful palaces that are made from amazing things you will find two types of palaces. The first type of palaces is like a hollowed out Pearl, a hollowed out pearl so you can have a pearl and imagine is hollowed out. That is your theme that is not your palace. That is like a tent where you rest like this tent where
you rest here. But if you sleep you don't sleep in this place you go to proper palace, your palace on the other hand, as a prophecy some explained will be a palace where you can see the inside from the outside and outside from the inside. so amazingly amazingly amazing palaces and if you look down you'll be able to see the people jahannam if Allah wills and if you look up you will not be able to see the next person in the higher level because there will be no more hidden
one as Anima Murphy sudo Rahim in Him, we have removed every sort of jealousy from their hearts. So Allah will not give you any jealousy by showing you the level higher than you to see how much more blessings that they have more than you. The Prophet system explained authentic. How do you think that the last person who enters Jelena will stand in front of agenda and look at his dominion
kingdom and palaces and everything in front of him of 2000 years travel 2000 years travel this is how huge his kingdom is for the last person who enters gentlemen. So imagine the first person imagine higher than that. Imagine gentlemen, for those, it will pay him off. Also Rahim Allah talks about the whole aim and the women of gentlemen, he talks about the whole aim. And he says, if the whole thing if the women of this world can be so beautiful made from clay, imagine the essence of the whole in when their essence is saffron, they're made from saffron. They're not made from dirt. And if women can be beautiful, made from dirt, imagine the essence of the women when they're made
from saffron. And we'll call him rahimullah mentions how you can see the nerves in their legs because it is so amazing. He talks about their body talks about their beauty talks about their music, talks about them, them singing to their husbands, talks about how beautiful they are, and how amazing they are and the fragrance that they have. He talks about the energy Allah will give you to sleep with your wives, he talks about how there is no sleep in general at all. He talks about how there is no beard in general, he talks about how women will have no hijab in general. So hijab is only for you in this world. In the authentic narration, I shall have their low Anna had a group of
women who was passing by who had beautified themselves excessively. And when she passed by in front of him, Ayesha was covered up completely in black, she looked at them and said, enjoy it in this world, for it is for you in this world for us in the hereafter. Allah what we're looking at the conviction of a righteous woman. So for those sisters who are wary of them having to cover in this world, then preserve yourself in this dunya for you is beautiful existence in the hereafter. So when a husband has his wives from the hole in it, no Kamala mentions the authentic hadith in Muslim ashmit that at that point, another woman will come, a woman will come, whose beauty and her
amazingness will make the king who is the man, forget the other girls, who is this woman, this woman is the woman of this dunya his wife in this world. So his wife in this world will be the Princess of the holy. And Abraham says, Does the king ever think about his servants when in the in the presence of the princess? He doesn't. So his wives in this world will be given far more beauty than explains why he says the whole he never ever went through the difficulties the women of this world went through. They never ever struggled in the cause of Allah, they never had a slander against them because of wearing the hijab, they never went to the difficulty of being obedient to their husbands.
So why should they be more beautiful than the whole? Why should they not be more beautiful than the whole amazing online? So then, he continues and he talks about how every single level will have a time with Allah subhanho wa Taala designated time so at every single level, a person will have a designated time with one to one with Allah subhanho wa Taala every week. So if your level 99 perhaps you will have a particular hour between you and Allah only. How amazing will it be when Allah uncovers his face to you? So you can gaze at Allah azza wa jal? You know, the greatest thing he says is not jahannam the greatest disease the greatest disaster will be that we might have lived for an
eternity never ever to see Allah. Never ever to know who created us and this is the this is the way that the people of jahannam are going to be, they'll never ever be able to see Allah azza wa jal and that will be the greatest tournament for them.
And the greatest reward for us will be the fact that we'll be able to see Allah, the more righteous we are, the more time we will have to spend with Allah subhana wa Tada. And he talks about the Friday, the Friday in which Muslims will meet Allah azza wa jal, that is the day in which everyone will have a time with Allah azza wa jal on the Friday he talks about a rain that will fall in the authentic narration. Even Abbas explains that on the Friday Allah will cause a rain to fall that will bring with it new fragrances that never used to exist before. He also talks about a market that will happen on Friday. And on the markets what will happen on the Friday market is that the angels
will bring beautiful contraptions, only Allah knows what it is. Only Allah knows what amazing things it is, perhaps it's a bull rock, a lightning fast horse with wings that can travel all the parts of gender. And so when you go to the market, you will want to buy something, and you will say I'm sorry, I don't have any money. So you'll tell the angels, but I want that thing. So the angels will give it to you whatever you want and say you paid for it already. Remember that you did that day. This was the payment for it here, take it as yours. So on that Friday, you will get whatever your heart's desire. Then when you've taken all of this and you've got the most beautiful sense
Allah subhanho wa Taala will invite you to be on these cushions of light, where you will lie down and have the most amazing or drinks and you'll be in the company all the people of gentlemen, Imagine all the people agenda have gathered together in a party, where they're all lying on on thrones of light, drinking the most beautiful of of drinks and speaking to them. Imagine on your right is Harlan Walid imagine on your left is Salahuddin a UB imagine? frontiersmen Tamia imagine on his right is Abu Bakar and Omar Oh my God. What sort of gathering is this? This is the gathering of the best of the best gathering or the best of the best. Only those people who truly love the law,
Allah will let them all be together. A kilo, Yama is Zimbardo, who lives in Abu Dhabi. Even the most closest two brothers on that day will be enemies of each other, except for those who are truly fearful of Allah. So they will be friends of that day. So my brothers this will be for an eternity. This is the way that we will lead our life for an eternity and only Allah knows how much he has prepared for us. I have prepared for my slaves what my eyes have what the eyes have never seen, what the ears have never heard and what the heart has never ever thought of. Like, only Allah knows how beautiful it is. As for Johanna in Johanna McCann at Masada verily jahannam is a terrible place a
place of ambush. Allah subhanho wa Taala created jahannam as a hot fire 1000 years the fire has been burning until it became black 1000 years until it became 70 years I'm sorry, had it states 70 years that had it states that the fire was burning until it became red than 70 years and it became white and another 70 years until it became became what it became black. So hot it is black. It's fuel is men and stones.
It's a pinata let you go to Hannah's wood hedgerow
cafe de verily fear the fire who's whose fuel is men and stones. Men meaning the people who are going to Johanna and stones because of the idols and everything else people used to worship that are thrown into the fire. So the more the people are thrown in the more the fire lips, how big is the fire? The fire is huge. The profitsystem said jahannam has 70,000 rings on each ring is a rope that has 70,000 angels pulling it jahannam has 19 angels, the greatest of the angels is Malik and he is the is the keeper of Johanna and he is the one who was entrusted with people to be punished in jahannam Allah subhanho wa Taala has created Johanna has an amazing place he has created in jahannam
a valley called rain
a valley of rain
for Hala from embody him holophone allow salatu wa terbaru Shahada for so far, you'll count
What is this verse talking about even above set the value of high is a valley that has been created for the people in that verse? What is the verse for holla from embodying holophone so there thereafter follow the people after them?
What did they do? They left the Sala What are sada What about Russia what and they follow the desires for so for you, so they will be thrown into the fire. So those people who don't pray as a bonobo said will be thrown into a valley called valley of La It's a special value jahannam that has been created for people who do not pray. Another value that has been created for people who also are to do with Salah are those people who pray but they pray at the last minute meaning with 10 minutes to go the hardest part to finish then they'll quickly quickly quick quick quick. I've got time to pray quickly and we pray now or Muslim quickly. It's about to finish the replay now it's a quick
it's about to finish the replay. Now, first of all Quick quick we got to get up right now. 20 minutes. Those who do it constantly. for them is a valley called whale. Allah says For ye lil mousseline Allah Dena Herman Salatin Subhan Allah de Nomura, only Amnon and my own universe. So for why you loosening even a bass and Tafseer tabari mentions that there are two meanings to this. The first meaning is whale which is a normal meaning of explanation a world to the believers, right? Whoa, for what illusory meaning well to the believers This is a common explanation. Another one is what what some of the scholars have seen, such as Abu Saud and others explained that whale means a
valley a special value in jahannam that has been created for people who delay this Allah always. Also the value of jahannam is a place where Allah has created a special type of food. And that food is called the
shutter at the Zaku. Allah has created a tree of fire
The fire called the coup. The coup is a tree that grows from jahannam. It's a tree of fire. And it has Toluca and also Sharpies, Allah says in Surah sulfat. He says that it's follow her its fruit. I like the heads of shale shale team. So imagine the heads of shaitan you're eating into it. When they eat it, it will burn the insides is as acidic, it's very strong acid. So it will burn you in trails, it will tear your insides away, it will burn you inside. So this is the food of the people of jahannam. Also, the field of jahannam is the
river suck is the pass that comes out of your own own limbs. So when you burn and the past comes, you will drink from that pass, because you'll be so thirsty and so. So, in need of food, you have nothing to drink, but you'll lick your own pass and you'll drink your own pass. Also Hamming which is
which is boiling water is also the drink of the people of Johanna. Also Allah subhanho wa Taala describes
the the the clothing of the people at random for levena
Cava boo, boo, boo theobromine Now as for the one who lied, put the app lousiana then then close a fire cut for him. So Allah describes close a fire even the best even Muslim sorry, describe the close of fire and he said for every person who jahannam is close a fire that is made from the pure Fire of Hell, and from the bark of that zip country. So imagine you're surrounded by this people are surrounded by this clothing of fire. Also, the prophets some send authentic hadith and Muslim and others he said, the molar tooth, this molar tooth of the of the personal jahannam will be as big as the mountain of offered. Meaning that Allah will make the bodies of the people of jahannam so big,
so that they feel the punishment even more. So Allah will make their bodies huge, and their molar tooth will be so big because they will feel that punishment. Also lots of had also the prophets have described the seat of the people of jahannam of fire. He said the distance between Makkah and Medina. This is the Mecca and Medina will be the Sikh of the people of Johanna. And also Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the fire that comes out. He describes the fire of jahannam to be so big that it has huge sparks. And if you were to see the sparks, you would think that the sparks are so huge imagine when you're welding Can you see this when you weld communion sparks that fly out? So
they're very tiny, aren't they? Very tiny, but Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the fire of jahannam to have huge sparks that if you were to see see it you would think like they're like, gee man, they are like Jamal, they're huge. camels like a horde of camels that are running away. Or in what is the verse in the Quran? In hatami beshara wrinkled kasatkina Haji mala to suffer. Allah says in her verily the fire throws out sparks thermae beshara in it throws out sparks
castle like it's like castle huge castles. So the sparks are huge like as big as castles. This is how big the sparks are. To analogy monotone super, like they are a horde of red camels. Imagine what the red camels jumping out. So this is how big the sparks are. So my brothers and sisters Islam This is just a small description of the people of jahannam. Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Al are off he said the people are Johanna will speak to the people agenda and a fee to Elena Amina Alma ami Marisa qumola call in Allah hug Rama Houma Alka fueling your salam, the people of Ghana will ask the people agenda and they will say in Surah Allah Allah says the people Johanna will say oh my people
or people agenda and a few Dalai Lama Oh please, people agenda give us from the water that Allah has given you all for anything else Allah has given you. So the people of Jenna will say looking down at people jahannam in Allah Verily Allah has her Rama has forbidden ma water to the disbeliever today. So this believer today and Allah subhanho wa Taala ends those verses in Surah out of talking to the people of Johanna, do you know what he says? While the hallucinogen not the hat, jelly jelly Gemma lofi some milk worker Lika Nigel Majidi mean what does he say? He says and they will never ever enter Jannah until the camel goes through the eye of the needle. So my brother's getting slammed
with a camel ever go through the eye of the needle? Yes, Salam.
Salam, my friends, there's only one or two places you can go to
either jahannam or Jenna, it's clear divide. And remember what I said in the morning today, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got up once he got up, stand stood up. And then he said to the people raised his hands and he said, Allah in salata La Jolla is not the price of a lie expensive. is not the price of a lie expensive is not the price of a lie expensive.
Jana is expensive, my friends. You can't buy it with just this or that. You can't buy it with the lecture. You can't buy with just one fasting and one fasting Ramadan. It's got to be a lifetime of worship. It's got to be a lifetime of charity. It's got to be a lifetime of feeding the poor lifetime of reading the Quran a lifetime of struggling in the cause of Allah. The agenda is expensive. Don't you dare think you have it. If you think you haven't asked Allah for death right now. You know, you haven't earned it yet. So earn it, earn Allah, Allah, Allah wants to give it to you. Allah wants to give it to you, but he wants you to earn it as well. So you feel the reward of
having worked in the cause of Allah. Because nothing can be more pleasurable. I can tell you and I can ask my brothers and sisters, many of whom I know are working so hard in the cause of Allah. Some of them are sitting here Mashallah. I know these brothers and sisters working so hard because Allah
By Allah, if you knew the enjoyment that we get, by Allah swear by Allah if you knew the happiness in our hearts, If you only knew the happiness in my heart, how you abdulhadi is not the case, if they only knew the happiness in our hearts and our souls, when we go to bed, when we are given a lecture and we organize something we have done something for the cause of Allah, the happiness despite our bodies, aching from the pain, that happiness in the soul, I swear by Allah, you would fight me for it. You cannot compare your happiness from all the luxuries of this dunya can never compare the happiness of the heart. When you make a believer love Allah when a believer smiles and
says Alhamdulillah that was fantastic. I've benefited from that. You cannot compare that happiness we're lucky nothing like it. Isn't that right? Nothing. Nothing can make that ever compares upon Allah. So my brothers Islam, spend your life helping this team, spend your life and make a firm commitment to change the way you are. Not just personally but to change the lives of others bring Islam to their lives. Bring a lot to their lives and Allah will give you a beautiful life. And Allah will give you a beautiful death. Allah will give you an eternity with Him in Jelena.
My name is Tanya.
This is regarding a person who wasn't religious, three to four years back and he has taken a house loan from the bank. Okay. And since he wasn't religious at that time later, he turns out to be religious and makes lots of research on Islam and also realizes that rabbis are wrong.
he went through a lot. He went through various ruling on that on regarding Riba
and now that he regrets a lot, but he's still not clearing the loan, on a monthly basis. And he keeps asking for forgiveness with Allah, now that he passes away without clearing off the loan from the bank. So will he be forgiven?
Allah Subhana Allah loves to forgive if a person has been repentant, Allah will forgive inshallah. But, you know, Reba is something which Allah azza wa jal hates. And the test for this person is to remove himself completely from this river.
Okay, so if a person if you have Riba, my brothers and sisters in Islam because you bought your house or river, you thought you bought yourself a piece of junk number like
you bought yourself a piece of jahannam How do you think Allah is accepting of Salah in that house? How? How do you think if you bought your house in your car on river? How do you think you're going to hedge on that car? How the heck do you think Allah will accept your hedge? I don't understand. What sort of thinking is that that thinks Allah will forgive all of that? Well, Allah has declared war on that.
So I don't understand this, my friends, I do not understand it.
I don't understand well, like what sort of thinking possesses a person to say it's okay Allah is going to be forgiving. When Allah has revealed verses that are to be recited to the Day of Judgment.
If they don't leave it or Mohammed, for whom
Be harby mina la hora suli if they don't leave it, then command them. Be wary of a war between Allah and His messenger and them. A war is a war Do you think Allah is going to have mercy on those people he has war against. So what possesses a person to take river for these sort of things? I have no idea. If you think because you won't actually have a house. It's fear Actually, it's fear of the unknown fear of poverty. This is what makes us unfortunately go into all of these things. But remember, you work for Allah not for anyone else Allah will provide that house will come to you I swear by Allah it will come to you. But Allah,
whether you do the right way or the wrong way, the way to think about it my friends is like a big mall. Remember a bit more like dubai mall? Imagine the Dubai Mall has two entrances. One entrance is called Hillel one and Frisco Haram. In the mall, you get whatever you want. But it's up to you which door you enter into to get the stuff you want. You can choose the Haram door you can choose the halal door so choose the Hillel door and you will enter and you'll get the same thing if you choose the Haram door. You still get the same thing but it was the Haram way haram choice. So whatever has been written to you will come to you this house that has been written to you will come to you.
Furthermore, people think that if they do haram if they don't do the Haram they won't ever succeed in their business. They'll never get a house if they don't do Haram, the business won't succeed. But the Hadith Rasulullah says otherwise, the Hadees which is authentic and Buddhahood says nothing prevents the risk that Allah has written for a slave from coming to him except his bad deeds.
Wow. So the more bad deeds you do, the more Allah decreases your risk.
So if you actually think by taking the rubber loan, you're actually making more money. You are stupid.
There's not a word for it. Stupid in the medical context is someone who does something contrary to his well being. So if you're doing something concrete, your well being thinking I actually no you know what it is, it is not contrary to our well being.
You know, use your silly. Rather, a person who truly knows the truth knows that as long as he stays away from the sin, the risk will come to him. I know myself will lie when I know I have committed a sin knowingly. I see Subhan Allah how the risk decreases. I've seen that personally in my own life. And I've seen personally when I do a good deed, how Allah increases my rewards. Anyone who is afraid of poverty, I have the following advice for you. Number one, Surah Surah waka as even at best even miss row, Dorothea Lange, who used to say surah waka whoever reads it, then Allah subhanho wa Taala saves him from poverty. Allah saves him from poverty, and even more so this is a more full narration
for even Mr. Road. Even Massoud would never have said this Have you not heard this from Rasulullah sallallahu himself because he's speaking about something which is unknown matter of the reward. So this is why they say this generation a must road is more for even though he never said I heard from Sula saying this, but it's more for to Rasulullah Salah because even Masood would not have dared to say this Have you not heard this sort of lesson himself. So sort of laughter is what I urge you with number two, I urge you with good deeds, doing good deeds and asking Allah for for good after it do good deeds and ask Allah for good after it. Number three, I asked you to make repentance a lot. A
lot of is that far because in the authentic in the in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us how to get more money. He tells us a new Allah usato salaam told his people for cool to stop Futura come in who can have a fara you silly sama la comida para ymdd cumbia Malinois benina wedge Allah come Jannati wedge Allah banheira What did he say? So I told my people Allah say a stop for Allah Verily Allah will forgive you. And when you say a stop for Allah, Allah will send you clouds laden with rain, and He will give you more crops he will give you more produce and He will give you children he will give you more wealth and more children. Why? Because you set a stop through law. So
when you repent to Allah more Allah will increase your wealth. So people who are afraid of poverty sale stop for lust or for allow make you rich. Number four, I urge you with Hajin Amara, I urge you to have an ombre the authentic hadith in Muslims in Muslim states that anyone who does Hajj and Umrah Allah increases in his wealth. And I swear by Allah myself my own life never done had your own mala, except I made far more money but Allah far more money Subhana Allah just make sure you remember, Allah provides for the bird but not in its nest, right? Make sure you're doing something but level provide money through that. Allah will give you a means through which you will provide
that money but it will come to you by Allah come to you, inshallah. All right.
Thanks for the wonderful advice with a question from the sister. So now
there's a question by a new muslimah.
She says it's regarding the talk she gave brother. She says, What did you mean by when we make law? Sometimes it can be shared. Please, can you clarify what kinds of block can be shared? The second part of a question is, did I say that? Yeah, you did say? You said some doors can be shared. And no, no, no, I didn't say it like that. No, that's why she needs a clarification. Yeah, she misunderstood. Yeah. Okay. Right. I didn't say some doctor we should know in Charlotte, though I won't be making to Allosaurus not sure he misunderstood. What I'm saying is that there are because there are has the highest level of the heat because you join between between the heat rubia UI and
asthma suffered all the types of thought he what I said was in the same way, because the indoor air you can have the highest level of tawheed the opposite can also happen. This is why Allah azza wa jal says don't make the art to anyone other than Allah. That's what I meant. Okay? Not that making dua to Allah can be shaped Please don't misunderstand what to allow us not chickens peurto heat. But the whole point is that if you were to make dua to other than Allah, then it can become shipped no doubt, no doubt, because of the fact that not just any [???], but the worst of [???]. Why can it be the worst of [???]? Because just like it can be the best of the heat, the opposite of it can be the
worst of the heat as well as the worst of ship. Does that make sense? Yes. And the second part of a question is, I understand that Islam is pro life, because she's a new Muslim and she's asking you this question. She says, I understand that Islam is pro life. Why as a believer in Allah, would I ask Allah to bring me to my death just to be with him? Or to be in his Jana inshallah?
Well, you should never ever ask Allah for, for death, the prophets of Salaam even though he loved the law more than all of us, and wanted to be with Allah, etc. He did not ever ask Allah for death. And he forbade us from asking Allah for death. So when I'm saying whoever wants to meet Allah, I don't mean that you ask Allah for death, and neither did the Prophet so ever understand that the one who said that statement? How did the prophecy understand it? It means meeting Allah, in your solder, for example, it means meeting Allah in your door, for example, remembering Allah and being in his mentioned and his presence. So whoever loves to be with Allah by remembering him, whoever loves to
be with Allah, by praying and being with Allah azza wa jal in that point, this is what is meant by whoever loves to be with Allah. Allah loves to be with him. Does that make sense?
Yes, okay, go ahead.
My name is a sham, and I'm a student. And my question is that in Ramadan, if we make changes, like we connect with a law, and we do a lot of the query a lot of foreign hard we make those changes remain within us even after Ramadan because after Ramadan, you know, we have work and we do these things. And we completely forget, we don't remember Allah and these things happen, but how do we make that change remain within us and be more fit? Okay, young man, very good. Question beyond your ears. Very good. To hear his question everybody. How do we make this change last beyond Ramadan? Very important question. The way that you make the changes last beyond Ramadan is by making it a
habit. How do you make something a habit habit? The reason why habit is called a habit is because when you take the HOA, a bit is there if you take the A away, bit is still there. When you take the B away, it is still there. Right? So habit is called a habit because it's always sticks. The problem with the habit is that if it's a bad habit, it also sticks with you. Okay, bad habit always sticks. This is why it's so difficult to give up smoking for people, right? Because it's a bad habit. It's one also it's difficult to give up bad deeds like this is the music sometimes. Why? Because it's a habit. So what's the best way to give up a bad habit which has become a bad deeds become a really
regular? You just do it sometimes without even thinking right? How do you get rid of a bad habit? Now, one of the best ways of course, one of the ways people recommend is just stop it. I have a different strategy for you.
Try to stop it. Yes, that's definitely that's definitely it. But I have a different strategy. And that strategy is, is is out of sight sight psychology that we use with our own patients. So me as a medical doctor, when I have a patient who for example, smokes. What do I do with a patient who smokes and he simply can't give it up? The man's gone crazy have tried everything with him. God's given him chewing gum and nicotine. I've given him nicotine patches. Nothing's working with him. I've even tried tying his hands to the back. No, I haven't. I'm just joking. But what do you do with this man?
So what we do is we say, look, a habit is difficult to break, no doubt, it's difficult. Right even one of the Sahaba of Rasulullah Salah, who used to drink Unfortunately, he used to fall into the habit of drinking until he was even lashed. We know that it is authentic and Muslim and others. So habit is sometimes difficult to give up. But then here is the good thing about habits. a habit might be difficult to give up. A bad habit might be difficult to give up. But the good thing is that a habit is easy to form. Okay, a habit, a bad habit is difficult to give up. But a good habit is easy to form. Okay, so what you do is to replace the good bad habit with another good habit that takes
its space. So for example, if you're into the bad habit, or looking at bad things on the internet, at night, start a good habit. What's the good habit? The good habit is I'm going to always read at the seat of the Quran with my wife before I go to sleep, for example, a good habit and you'll see you that habit becomes a habit, it becomes a habit you keep on doing it, until the good habit will erode the bad habit. So the strategy that I have for you to overcome bad habits is to start a new one that is good, that will eventually take the place of the bad habit. Does that make sense? Everybody? Start a good habit that will take its place. And this is what is most beloved to Allah.
Let me ask you a question. For the sisters, for example, sisters, would you rather have a husband, who takes you out to amazing holiday, once in your lifetime? Right suddenly comes to you and says right wife, let's go where I'm going to take the most amazing holiday. First, we're going to go to Makkah and Medina and have the most amazing holiday there. Then we're going to go to Turkey and have Islamic holiday there. Then we're going to go to Spain and see everything there on the way back we'll pass by Dubai and buy a huge shopping and buy everything that we can in Dubai Mall and all that stuff. And then we'll come back home. Okay, would you like that? Or would you rather have a
husband who doesn't who doesn't do that? But every day he gives you a flower? Every day non stop he comes home and he has a flower in his hand which has been Would you rather have?
Which one would you rather have?
The one that's constant even the small right? Imagine for the brothers? Would you rather have a wife that out of the blue he does something amazing for you one day, or rather have a wife that every day she does something nice for you like what? I don't know. Perhaps a dish that she cooks for you know, the way to husbands is through their tummies isn't it? So it's it's either food or perhaps every single day, every single day. The food that she cooks if she feeds it to you instead of you having to put it in your mouth, something simple, something simple like that. Okay? Which type of wife would you rather have? rather have the one that does something beautiful, that love that you love
every single day? Or is it the wife that actually there's something amazing only once? Once in a while? I'm sure you would love the other time and that is also Allah subhanho wa Taala and authentic hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophets have said that Allah loves
his slave when he does something, even if it is small, as long as it is constant. Okay, as long as it is constant. This is why For example, we know that Bilal rhodiola and who the prophets have said, Yeah, Bella, I heard your footsteps before me and Jenna, what happened? What do you do said Rasul Allah, I don't have anything that I do, except that after I make do I pray to record something simple that you do. Even taymiyah Rahim Allah He says in his fatawa it is obligatory on every believer to have one deed every single day that they do that only Allah and he knows only.
It is obligatory in every believer to have one D that you do. Every single day that is only between you and Allah. It could be to lack of prayer, even your husband's never know about it. Even your wives don't know about it, brothers. When you're asleep quickly, slowly you get up slowly get up and pray to rock and go to sleep. No one knows about except you and Allah. It could be a beggar on the side of the road somewhere in on the road to Sharjah for example. Every single day, you buy them food, a family, only you and Allah knows and when you go there you cover your face as well. No one knows a person no one knows it but you
make something have something between you and Allah only. through which you can ask Allah Allah do it only for your sake, no one knows about you.
And this is the type of a class this is a true sign of the class that a believer struggles to do a deed that can only be done with us last, right.
So my friends make a habit. When it becomes a habit Believe me, it will it will it will follow through okay, because the habit is called a habit because, like I said habits are habits
Okay, all right. All right, I guess I'm very sorry, brothers. I know you're lined up queued for the questions. But I'd like to take the sisters as the last question. Sorry for that. Because to be honest, was just 15 minutes to one. We'll take the last question from the sister side. Can you imagine? Wow.
This is just the question to balance Dean Antonia. How much time in hours a percent to be allotted to work to earn a livelihood. And the second part of this Oh, Hola. Hola. Hola. Sorry, what was the first one? The question is to balance Deen and dunya to balance to balance between and dounia. Okay, hold on. I want to stop you there. Okay. I don't like the word balance.
Right? I don't like the word balance. This is already negative thinking. Balance means that when you do something, you have to sacrifice something. Right, everybody, you don't have to use that that's a defeatist thinking. You can have a better thinking, lead my world. If I can lead my world, meaning I can have the best of both. This is the way you should be thinking. The word balance unfortunately means it's like, Okay, I have to do this more. And to do this less, I want you to think differently, I want you to think that you're doing each its appropriate amount, and this is called leading it.
Yes, ultimately, this does mean that you're going to do less for this world. However, what we really mean by that is you're doing enough for the world just enough for you, that is required for you to live your sustenance and have your sustenance. So what I suggest for you all is to have a different shift in your thinking. Don't think of balance have to give something up. Because balance means you have to give something up that is good. Think, don't think sacrifice. It's a bad word. What should you think? You think investment?
Does that make sense? The word sacrifice after sacrifice something. sacrifices like net loss, there is a loss to you. investment, there is total gain. No, you're not sacrificing your investing. I'm not sacrificing my good time. Or my money. This money that I could have used to buy my new car. I'm sacrificing it now for the cause of Allah. No, you're not investing it for the cause of Allah is the right. It's the way of thinking. You see the Westerners are masters of the words. They make filthy things sound very, very nice. Rubber interest. It's in your interest to have it. So there's something as filthy as labor they made interest.
espionage and spying. They call it intelligence. Intelligence.
IQ is intelligent man. It's bloody spying and espionage. Don't call it intelligence. So Westerners are fantastic at using amazing words for really, really wrong things. Muslims unfortunately fall into that. What we should do is use the right words it's investment, not sacrifice. It's leadership not balance. And if you remember all of this be nilla the answer becomes clear as Apollo hit the collocation. inshallah Tada.
