00:04:21--> 00:04:24

We begin with the praise of Allah azza wa jal.

00:04:25--> 00:04:39

We praise Him, we seek his help, we ask for his forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides, there is no one that can misguide them.

00:04:40--> 00:04:45

And whoever Allah misguides there is no one that can guide them.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

And I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah alone and with no partner. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the slave of Allah and His messenger.

00:05:01--> 00:05:08

O you who believe have Taqwa of Allah as he deserves for you to have Taqwa of Him

00:05:10--> 00:05:12

and do not die except as Muslims

00:05:14--> 00:05:31

or mankind. have Taqwa of your Lord, who created you from a single soul and created from it its meats, and from them both many men and women, and have Taqwa of Allah the one through whom you demand your mutual rights

00:05:32--> 00:05:35

and allies, always watching over you.

00:05:37--> 00:05:52

Are you who believe, have Taqwa of Allah and speak a word that is true, he will correct your deeds, and forgive your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed achieved a great success.

00:05:53--> 00:06:12

To continue. The best speech is the book of Allah and the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The worst of things in this religion are the newly invented martyrs. And all of these newly invented practices are innovation and all innovation is misguidance and all misguidance is in the fire.

00:06:15--> 00:06:21

To noble companion, Abu hurayrah, radi Allahu and

00:06:22--> 00:06:23

brought to us a Heidi

00:06:24--> 00:06:29

which generated from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:06:30--> 00:06:36

And this hadith is narrated by Lima tirmidhi manomaya in their sunon

00:06:38--> 00:06:47

to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, x zero vichara ha the mean like that.

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

He said,

00:06:52--> 00:06:58

frequently Remember, the destroyer of pleasure,

00:06:59--> 00:07:03

has him here a means cartel, that which cuts off your pleasure.

00:07:05--> 00:07:11

That which destroys all of the things that you enjoy in your life.

00:07:12--> 00:07:16

What is it that destroys everything that you enjoy in your life,

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

death and moat.

00:07:20--> 00:07:33

This reality is a reality that every single one of us has to face, every single person, cool, Newman, la has done everything on this earth will perish.

00:07:35--> 00:07:56

But how many of us are heedless, and we don't think about the reality of death. People are fooled by many different things. Some of them they are fooled by the Dunia ahavath, whom will hire to dunya they are deceived by that the life in the dunya.

00:07:58--> 00:08:03

And they think that this will not happen to them all. They think this will not happen to me anytime soon.

00:08:04--> 00:08:29

Some of them are deceived by the age that young people say this is what the old people worry about. This is not for me. Some of them are deceived by their strength and their health. And they say I'm strength I'm strong, I'm healthy. I don't need to worry about this, which happens to old people, many many years away.

00:08:31--> 00:08:39

One of the most dangerous things is for death to catch a person by surprise.

00:08:40--> 00:08:49

And many times in the Quran. Allah azza wa jal mentions the reality of the people who death catches them by surprise.

00:08:50--> 00:08:51

They are not expecting it.

00:08:53--> 00:08:54

They're not thinking about it.

00:08:55--> 00:09:04

They're not planning for it. But instead they are caught suddenly by surprise without any thought at all.

00:09:06--> 00:09:22

Like Allah azzawajal mentioned about a people that he opened up for them everything. Hatter either sorry. Whoa Bhima Ooh, to our hearts now from Titan for either who are either who Moberly suit.

00:09:24--> 00:09:42

Allah azza wa jal, he said, until when we gave them every single thing, we made their life, all the luxuries and the ease came to them. And they were so happy with what they had been given. we seize them suddenly.

00:09:43--> 00:09:45

And then they were cut off.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

They didn't have any other option. Because when a person dies, their deed cease in Kota or am I know who that person's deeds and and that is why Allah azza wa jal

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

described death in the Quran as we'll see but as a calamity

00:10:06--> 00:10:11

in Anton Bob to fill out the form also a batch como si that will note

00:10:12--> 00:10:17

if you are traveling in the earth, and you are struck by the calamity of death,

00:10:18--> 00:10:41

a lot as much as described as a calamity. Because all of your options finish every single thing, all of your plans, all of your hopes, all of your I'm going to do this tomorrow. Tomorrow, I'm going to change tomorrow I will make Toba tomorrow I'm gonna turn back to Allah. Tomorrow I will do this and tomorrow I will do that.

00:10:43--> 00:10:59

And when this mu C bar comes to the person, there is no more option. There is no further tomorrow I will do and tomorrow I will change an Allah I feel so sorry for what I did. And if you take send me back to this earth, I will not do it again.

00:11:00--> 00:11:15

But there is no chance to come back. There is no option to turn and to repent after that moment of death comes and that is why Allah azza wa jal described it as musi battle modes, the calamity of death,

00:11:16--> 00:11:43

and particularly when it comes to a person who is not expecting it. And if you take anything from this hook by today, we want you to take this, that the most important thing regarding death is to be ready for it, to be prepared for it, to prepare something for it. And you can only prepare for it if you think about it. And if you expect it to happen.

00:11:44--> 00:11:49

We even living in a time where there's an unusually large number of people dying.

00:11:50--> 00:11:56

Even this, we don't take a lesson. We see people around us yesterday they were with us tomorrow.

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

We follow their janazah to the graveyard.

00:12:01--> 00:12:17

And we still don't think we still don't reflect and we still don't say that maybe today, tomorrow. The next day. This could be me. No matter how young no matter how healthy no matter how far away you think this is. You have to prepare for it.

00:12:19--> 00:12:34

And that is why a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Hadith isn't Buhari and Muslim from the Heidi's of Anasazi Allah one that a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said to him,

00:12:36--> 00:12:51

he said to him, when is the hour for Salah who and he said, he asked him when is the hour going to be? When will the Day of Judgment be? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

one mother, I did tell her

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

what have you prepared for it?

00:13:00--> 00:13:17

He didn't say to him tomorrow or the next day or next week or next year? Or in 1000 years. He said to him the most important thing he said to him Mather, I did tell her what have you prepared?

00:13:19--> 00:13:21

What have you done to prepare for it?

00:13:23--> 00:13:27

And there are other a hadith in which the prophet SAW I said similar things.

00:13:28--> 00:14:09

The mystery Haha, sorry, do for something similar to this prepare yourself for something like this. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to encourage us to remember death. He used to encourage us to remember death so that we could prepare for it. And Allah azzawajal told us in sort of UniSA he said, Well, I set it Toba Tula Dena meluna say he had either How about ah ha de humo know to call that in the tuber tool and well Allah de nada mucho na whom Kufa Allah, he can either let him either than Allah.

00:14:11--> 00:14:26

Allah azza wa jal said there is no Toba for the one who does evil deeds, until the moment that death comes to him. And when he feels his soul is coming out from him, he says in the tuber tool, and now I made Toba. Now, I feel sorry.

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

Like fear around,

00:14:31--> 00:14:38

and the others who followed that path, that when the soul came from their body, then they said in me to virtual and

00:14:40--> 00:14:47

now I believe now I make Toba. Now I turn back to Allah. There is no Toba for these people

00:14:48--> 00:14:56

will say those who die when they are disbelievers. It is they that we have prepared for them as severe painful punishment.

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

So there is no tober for the one

00:15:00--> 00:15:10

Who says I will make Toba tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow until the moment when death comes to them, they say in the tuber tool, and now I make Toba. Now, I'm sorry.

00:15:11--> 00:15:23

So a person has to prepare. They have to think about this thing that is going to happen to everyone. And they have to ask themselves what they have prepared for it.

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

And that is why bowrider

00:15:28--> 00:15:29

MNL hillside,

00:15:30--> 00:15:31

radi Allahu Allah.

00:15:32--> 00:15:41

He narrated that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, No hay to come anzia or to Kobo for zoo.

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

And in some of the narrations for in

00:15:48--> 00:16:06

to the cure hero. He said that I used to prohibit you from visiting the graves in the earlier days of Islam. When the P when there was a fear that the people would go back to the way of jahai and do the things that the non Muslims do in the beside the graves.

00:16:08--> 00:16:15

The Muslims were prohibited from visiting the graveyards. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Now you should visit them

00:16:16--> 00:16:51

an eternity in his narration he added because it reminds you of the ark era. He reminds you of death. When you go to the graveyard and you see the people being put into the grave. It reminds you of death. Maybe in these days, it might be difficult. There might be restrictions. People can't go to the graveyard like they used to go to the graveyard. But even when you read, you read in the news, you read it the graveyards for the Muslims in some areas are so full that they can't find a place to bury people.

00:16:53--> 00:17:06

Does he not remind you of the accuracy? Does he not ask you the question? Mather our data. Let her What have you prepared yourself? What have you made ready for this day?

00:17:07--> 00:17:43

How many people are snatched by a loss suddenly, and they were not prepared? They were not ready. They had not made the proper preparation for something that they knew was going to come? The all of us know it's going to come. So every one of us has to ask ourselves the question. What have you prepared? For when the destroyer of pleasures comes to you? akula matters now? Why stealth little RV many will echo what he said muslimeen I mean Cooley lendinvest tell Pharaoh who young fella come in now who will have Rahim.

00:18:00--> 00:18:15

Alhamdulillah europeen alameen wa salatu wa sallam Alma Rosie rock metaline al amin Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ajmeri.

00:18:19--> 00:18:20

Allah azzawajal

00:18:21--> 00:18:32

told us in the Quran, kulu Neff cinza cultural modes, were in nama to a phono Audra comio malkia

feminine Zhu z her any nerdy were older Fidel Genesis, aka the fez, woman higher to dunya in matter on

00:18:43--> 00:18:47

every single soul will taste death.

00:18:48--> 00:19:01

And you will only receive the true rewards of what you do on the Day of Judgment. So whoever is saved from the fire and entered into paradise, this is the one who is truly successful.

00:19:03--> 00:19:06

And this worldly life is nothing except

00:19:07--> 00:19:24

a temporary deception and a temporary enjoyment, something that you enjoy for a very small time, like a temporary provision, but it deceives you into thinking that you will be here for a very long time.

00:19:25--> 00:19:41

In the beginning of this football, we spoke about the importance of preparing for death. The first stage of preparing for death is remembering death. And believing that it can happen to you today, tomorrow.

00:19:43--> 00:19:49

Remembering that it can happen to you and so you have to prepare yourself for it.

00:19:51--> 00:19:54

And in the second part of the hook, I want to talk about

00:19:56--> 00:19:58

really two things

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

that a person

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

And can do to prepare themselves for death.

00:20:05--> 00:20:07

The first one

00:20:08--> 00:20:12

is not to presume that you will live until the evening.

00:20:13--> 00:20:22

And when you reach the evening, don't presume that you're going to live until tomorrow. So when you live your life as though today is your last day

00:20:24--> 00:20:41

your mindset changes the way you see the world changes. When you live your life as though today is going to be my last day, it's possible that today will be my last day, it's possible that I will not reach the other prayer after this Juma is possible that I will not reach the mother of prayer.

00:20:42--> 00:21:07

So if that happens to me, am I ready for it? Nobody wants to die. No believer craves and wishes to die. Because they know that when you die, your deeds finish, you don't have anything extra. They want to get the most out of this life that they can the most good deeds out of it that they can. But when you imagine that you might die today,

00:21:08--> 00:21:11

how do you behave? How do you think

00:21:12--> 00:21:37

the first thing is that you totally change? You're constantly making a steel farm, you're constantly turning back to Allah. Yes, it may be you have projects and dreams and aspirations. But if I can't fulfill those, at least at least, let me make constant is still far and turn back to Allah so that if it happens to me today, at least, I have asked Allah to forgive me.

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

Even if you're not able to complete those huge projects and those big dreams, at least I was able to pray to Raka act.

00:21:48--> 00:22:12

Like the person who says our prayer later, how do you know that Lita is going to come? At least I was able to read my portion of the Quran today, too later. How do you know that later is going to come? When you start thinking like that, it doesn't stop your long term planning. It doesn't stop your dreams, it doesn't stop your aspirations, but it makes you take advantage of what you have.

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

Maybe I might die today. So let me do what I can now whatever good deeds I can do whatever sins, I can get rid of whatever, Vicar I can make whatever is still far I can make let me do it now. Because I might not reach the evening, when I was thinking of doing.

00:22:33--> 00:22:43

The second thing that I want to talk about. Or maybe we'll talk about three things. The second thing that I want to talk about is, as we said, remembering death.

00:22:44--> 00:22:49

And the ways you can remember death is to visit the graves, as we said,

00:22:50--> 00:22:56

to take a lesson from those who die around you. And also to visit the sick people.

00:22:57--> 00:23:18

The people who are who are very unwell and who are, we fear that they are near to death, when you visit these people for life changes your whole outlook on life. When you visit someone who doesn't expect to live a week, or doesn't expect to live until the end of the month, it has an effect upon you.

00:23:20--> 00:23:25

And the third thing that I wanted to mention, and this is something that many of us neglect

00:23:26--> 00:23:31

is to have a rasiya to have yourself a will.

00:23:32--> 00:23:35

Now I'm not talking about the legal side of

00:23:36--> 00:23:48

you know, the lawyers and so on. That could be something if you can do it, then that's all well and good. But at least at least have something written down.

00:23:49--> 00:23:50

For when you die,

00:23:51--> 00:24:09

something written down and there are really two or even three things that are so important to be inside of this Hosea. The first one is how to divide your property and your wealth and a list of the assets that you have.

00:24:10--> 00:24:30

Because if you die today, how will the people know who owes you money and who you owe money to? How will the people know what you own in this place in this place? How will the people know that you want to divide your wealth according to the Sharia of Allah azza wa jal and not according to the way that it is divided in many other places.

00:24:32--> 00:24:43

You also need to give you advice of how you want to be buried. How you want your family to behave. Do you want the people to wail over you in the way of Jamelia

00:24:44--> 00:24:45

in the way before Islam

00:24:46--> 00:24:51

when it causes pain to the dead person to hear their family wailing over them.

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

Give the people advice about what to do and to give them advice about what to do you have to

00:25:00--> 00:25:11

Imagine, imagine that you died today. And the only thing that that people had to follow was this piece of instructions that these instructions that you had written.

00:25:13--> 00:25:54

What would you instruct them to do even practical things? Even practical things? How would you instruct them to behave? What would you instruct them to do? And I haven't been in that there are many templates available online. You can search them, you can download them to give you an idea, but personally think if I died today, and the only thing that people had to follow was this piece of paper, what would I write on it? What advice would I give to my children? What advice would I leave for my family? How would I tell them to deal with me? How would I tell them to prepare me for burial? How would I tell them to divide my wealth?

00:25:55--> 00:25:58

What would I tell them to do? And what would I tell them not to do.

00:26:00--> 00:26:21

And then you make sure that you make this time and is something which is easy for everyone. Easy for those you leave behind and easy for yourself that you don't end up gaining sin, because you didn't give the people the proper wasI the proper last will to explain what you want to be done when you die.

00:26:22--> 00:26:41

So this is a reminder to all of us, because many of us we don't think about this until it comes. And many of us are surprised by the sudden or sudden death unexpected death, which comes without any warning. And a person might just be driving in the car. And that's it. They don't reach home.

00:26:42--> 00:27:10

So we have to think about it, we have to remember it, we have to prepare for it. We have to be in a state of Toba, we have to try to get every last good deed that we can and keep away from every sin that we can. And we have to think about what we have left in terms of instructions to our family and friends that we leave behind and what we want to tell them and what we want to instruct them and how we want to our wealth to be divided and so on.

00:27:11--> 00:27:59

And when a person is thinking about this, these things, they come into their mind and ultimately, a person who is prepared is a person who will be like allies or gel described those people who are saved from the fire and put into Jenna because they were prepared for this inevitable thing that was going to come the destroyer of pleasures from masala Sally Morocco Allah, Allah Mohammed Abdullah Kamara can be valic or bukem for Carla, Colin Kadima in the law, how Amala equateur who you saw Luna Island nebi Johan legend and also Lu Allah he was selling the motor schema Allahumma salli ala Muhammad Ali Muhammad came also later Allah Ebrahim Allah Allah Ibrahim, in nakka hamidou Majeed
