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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

No, put it here gonna be central.

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

Okay, how's everybody doing tonight?

00:00:27--> 00:00:28

Good.

00:00:29--> 00:01:21

Excellent. Now, first of all, let me say thank Allah to Allah, for giving me the opportunity to be with you tonight, then I would like to extend my gratitude. And I'm very thankful to MSA organizing this wonderful event, wonderful gathering. And I think also the university for hosting this event. And I would like to say, I will be shallow with you for two weekends this weekend and the next weekend in New Jersey. And I'm so happy and excited about that. And the best part of it that I'm going to be starting tonight, talking to you about the journey of the belief. And then we start with this, I believe that Muslims journey to not only start, and the real meaning of life does not only

00:01:21--> 00:02:07

start after death, actually, from the moment you're born, from the moment you're born, that's your turn, that this life is not in any way less important than the next. That's not in any way less important than the next. Because Muslims, they don't live this life. And forget about the importance of it, and the expense of only thinking about the after. Because this dunya whatever you work, whatever you do, today, you go to see tomorrow, you go to see tomorrow. That's why this dunya is very valuable, this worldly life is very valuable in our eyes. The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said he was asked once men of holiness, who's the best person than the profits or sell

00:02:07--> 00:02:29

themselves, the one who will live longer, and will be able to do a lot of good deeds. So person will live a long life in this one in life. But this will give him or her the opportunity to do a lot of good deeds, so become the deaf judgment, they will be proud of what they have what they basically have done in their life in their life.

00:02:31--> 00:03:18

My dear brothers and sisters, it is very important to for us to live for a reason. Because those who stand for nothing will fall for anything. And those who are four principles for certain goals in life, for things that they believe in their life will make a lot of sense will make a lot of sense. And as Muslims, when we think about the purpose of our life, the goals, the things that we give him in this life, no doubt that the most important goal for us is to fulfill what Allah has created us for, have created us for which is to worship him subhana wa Tada. As he said, what matters.

00:03:25--> 00:03:53

I have not created humans and jinn for any purpose, but to live up to worship need to worship Me, and also was the kind of Watada said, told us the team is the one job he fulfilled, that He created you to live in the center, and to be generations after another one generation after another for what to live in this earth. And he told us also was

00:03:55--> 00:04:45

that he has given you that we're ordering to live in this life to make a mark. It's a beautiful word in Arabic. It means to be able to establish to establish a simple life of civilizations, and given Earth in the face of the earth, though some other worldly goals that you need to achieve. But the main purpose of creating us first of all, is to worship Him alone, some kind of without. The goal that we live for is not a goal was established by me or by one generation behind it is from this beginning of humanity. It is the same purpose that for the same purpose that Abraham and no one all the prophets would have lived for. They're all in all these civilizations all these generations

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

before us. They live in this earth to be able to fulfill that goal which is to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone to worship alone. I came from her brother said

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

Graduated from Saudi Arabia. So back there, there's a lot of people love hunting down in Texas with a lot of people love to hunt to live right now. So I'm pretty familiar with hunting. And that's why sometimes a good example from that

00:05:16--> 00:06:01

environment kinda. So when I see one of the things that I was very moved by once I saw this beautiful Falcon, owned by a very rich person, and that Falcon basically live in a cage, and the cage, and the moment, the moment the owner of this Falcon, take the Falcon two, or to the basically to the desert for hunt, you see that Falcon attitude totally change. Totally cheap. Well, I'm not I'm not exaggerating, totally the expression of the faith, that excitement that you see, like we came back to life, when the moment the owner of that property put in the truck, and they hit into the desert. Why?

00:06:03--> 00:06:13

If you ever seen a hunting dog, and this hunting in the backyard to somebody, the moment the honor this hunting dog puts him in a truck to go for hunting, the moment

00:06:15--> 00:06:27

the dogs started getting too excited, when you tell them keep waiting is so exciting. Why? Because that Falcon, that dog will fulfill the purpose of his life.

00:06:29--> 00:06:30

Not to sit in somebody's

00:06:31--> 00:06:34

garage, or somebody in a cage.

00:06:35--> 00:06:57

That ought to stay in somebody's backyard, then the mission of that of that function to go up to, to basically run fast and to fly a pie. And the moment they don't fulfill their purpose of life, the moment they live, alive, which is no purpose for I did not fulfill the purpose of my existence.

00:06:58--> 00:07:44

It is exactly the same. If you live in this life in this worldly life, and you do not fulfill what you were created for. It's like that Falcon locked up in the cage. That's what you saw was locked up inside your body. And the moment you fulfill your divine destiny, whatever created you for the moment, you will live totally, completely different life, completely different. But you feel that now and start enjoying my life. Now I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing. Now I'm dealing with other created before. And if you don't fulfill that obligation, that divine destiny that have created you for you will be almost like that Falcon locked up in a cage.

00:07:45--> 00:08:33

And the moment I look at the slide, from that perspective, that I'm living, while I'm fulfilling with a muscle can alter me or before created me for that's why life for us, it is totally different as a believer, different tastes different means they have different principles that I live for, and I live for an emboldened until the last moment of my life. And that's one big difference between true believer and others. True Believer, they have principles in life, but they live up to this principle. You know, it's easy to have principles in life, but it's very hard to live up to them, and to can to hold fast and to them until you're done until you die. My brothers and sisters, Allah

00:08:33--> 00:09:04

subhanaw taala promised us if we believe in Him, if we fulfill the destiny that he commanded us for that we worship Him alone, and we have faith in Him and His Messenger and follow his command and abstain from what he forbade us from that Allah subhana wa tada promised us that he that we will live in good and we will die in good. And the next slide who will live in good amasa panel data set, man

00:09:12--> 00:09:15

whoever took it from a male or female

00:09:21--> 00:09:23

while they are believers

00:09:40--> 00:09:45

that we promised them that they will live in good. They will.

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

They will live with them. And certainly, we will reward them for the good deeds that they used to do in this world in life. My brothers and sisters the Muslim level

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

In this life, the movement live in the slide, as I said, with certain principle, believing in the loss of habitat, fulfilling that ultimate goal of the purpose of his life, the divine destiny that he or she is supposed to meet. That's why I want to scare people, not necessarily what's scaring the believer, what people terrifying the scare of it's not something necessarily will terrify the belief, what people worry about and think about constantly will be totally different, what the believer Think of all the time, all the time,

00:10:35--> 00:10:42

the way you value, the way you look at things would be different. And I'll give you just one example, from the time of the prophet SAW.

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

And this had been reported by Muslim,

00:10:47--> 00:10:47

Central.

00:10:50--> 00:10:58

I was sitting with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and all of a sudden, Muslims walk into the garden. And

00:10:59--> 00:11:05

for those who don't know, was a burning, spoiled young man. And

00:11:06--> 00:11:15

before he became even, he will wear one shoes, these shoes would be brought from one country and his shirt will be brought from another country

00:11:17--> 00:11:31

from two different countries. That's that's the style of the Muslim. When he wears a perfume, he will wear perfumes, that it will last for days, on his clothes, and for hours in the street that he walk

00:11:33--> 00:11:38

or walk from. So this is the first book and he was an

00:11:39--> 00:11:45

artist himself. When he saw him, he couldn't control his tears. Can you imagine the

00:11:46--> 00:11:49

crying, his tears falling in his cheeks?

00:11:51--> 00:11:58

then definitely, this is what raised hundreds of questions in people's mind. And one of them definitely will be white crying.

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

Then the prophets of Southern said,

00:12:06--> 00:12:06

Ah, Baba,

00:12:08--> 00:12:16

I've seen this young boy before and haven't seen any more reassuring none of a word like

00:12:17--> 00:12:26

a person who live a luxurious life. He was like we say he was living in the last in the last lecture.

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

And when he walked into the profits,

00:12:30--> 00:12:51

he was wearing very old clothes, not that fancy clothes that he used to wear. He doesn't look that at fresh as he used to be Mecca. Why? For some reason, that his family did not support him financially anymore. Now, because he became Muslim 30 people must understand.

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

Because he became poor, he lost.

00:12:56--> 00:13:11

He lost the world, he lost the money, he lost all this access to this worldly life, worldly material things he lost. It's not by its choice. We're not going to give you any money, we're not going to support you, we're not going to do this to you. They kick him out.

00:13:12--> 00:13:29

But he knows that the purpose of his life that this thing that he need to fulfill, not to collect off, not to be famous and to be a powerful person because of his family. They were very, very powerful tribe in Arabia at that time. That's not what

00:13:30--> 00:14:09

he knew at that time, then the purpose of his life, it is to worship the Lord, which is almost a paradox. Even if he lost the money, even if he lost the power. Even if he lost the wolf. It doesn't matter anymore. Because you know what I feel felt like this. From inside. I'm living in peace in Brussels. I can deceive myself days and months, maybe hours and moments, thinking that I'm very happy to think the end of the day when a restful input when it when it when I settle down. And I think about really meeting my destiny. I'm fulfilling what Allah created before or not Muslim.

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

fulfilled his destiny. That's fine. He never regretted that was that decision. Peter? Do you think Mossad for a second regretted that decision that he made? Do you think now in his grave, he thinking wow, I missed a lot by being Muslim.

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

Now,

00:14:29--> 00:14:54

he has every opportunity to go back to stem. But as long as they did not want to accept what he decided to do in his life, he's not willing to compromise. Because what he found what he found in America, what he found in faith was more valuable. More sleep than what do you used to have before being Muslims? My brothers and sisters.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

The movement live in this life and it's totally different. I don't want to say

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

For sure, was way way after the technical prophets

00:15:04--> 00:15:09

with a great discovery, his name shall establish

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

one time he told him

00:15:13--> 00:15:26

if you don't stop what you're preaching what you're doing with you will be they will do this and then he's in a very beautiful, beautiful statement he said, in the gym that you have to stand if you surgery for him, me,

00:15:28--> 00:15:41

my chin, my enjoyment, my joy, it is an inside my heart. It is with me wherever I go, you guys want to get into to me, you're gonna lock me up in jail. This is

00:15:42--> 00:15:43

by myself.

00:15:45--> 00:16:06

I will be with a lot alone. And it would mean that I don't care about anybody else. You can have exiled me and send me to another country that will be an opportunity for me, basically, to visit a new country whenever you see. It's like y'all get to see new people, another community something new.

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

Welcome to the Shahada, you killing me, you threaten me to kill me, if you kill me, I will die as a murderer as a shaky. You don't scare me.

00:16:18--> 00:16:30

That's the ultimate optimism I believe, a person willing to adjust himself to any situation that he will be in and he will feel good in any situation that he will appear.

00:16:31--> 00:16:42

It is why because he knows that he finds and found that he is fulfilling what he was created for the moment live in the studio, as I said,

00:16:44--> 00:16:44

as almost a

00:16:46--> 00:16:47

year

00:16:51--> 00:16:52

can

00:16:54--> 00:16:55

be can can.

00:16:57--> 00:17:14

Oh, main con. And by the way, some of them have said all mankind meant yeah even sent me that the verse is the word of God in general mankind, but it is meant to be specifically to the believer. Yeah, I

00:17:15--> 00:17:23

mean, so many interpreters are said that this verse in particular relate to to the believers.

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

And it's beautiful in,

00:17:27--> 00:17:28

in our

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

struggles.

00:17:32--> 00:17:55

You get to live within a struggle. This life is not easy. This life is not easy. Even though we have come out of your mother. It is a struggle until you be pushed out the way she lets you go out over body, the way you live your life, you just turn the front. That's the nature of life. That's the nature of life. Then he said,

00:17:56--> 00:17:57

then he will meet you

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

see the movement live in this life.

00:18:01--> 00:18:17

The moment will come nobody has doubt about if there's anyone in this group thing that he or she will not see this moment in their life. Please come forward and tell me how can you protect yourself from

00:18:18--> 00:18:37

some of our earliest footsteps so I can be able to live more on to be able to do more good Good, good deeds. But everyone knows that there is a moment will come. Where does he have no more moments after it? centers the became a feedback image rehab it as it does.

00:18:39--> 00:18:42

These days carrying us to our grave.

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

What's the date today?

00:18:46--> 00:18:46

Marshall

00:18:53--> 00:19:01

Okay, March 11 2000 2010. till November last year.

00:19:03--> 00:19:20

Can you believe Yes exactly. 2009 2009 and 2010. Do you know that you are now from last year March last year you are one year closer to your death. Your 365 days closer to your death.

00:19:22--> 00:19:27

You have bought 360 days already to your grave.

00:19:28--> 00:19:39

You've been walking since last year 360 days non stop. You did not stop a single day. Every day you walking to your grave.

00:19:41--> 00:19:50

And tomorrow, you will take one more day of walking towards your great and after every day goes by

00:19:51--> 00:19:55

until one day will come and you will run out of days.

00:19:56--> 00:19:57

It's no more intense

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

Notice all of a sudden that's it. It's

00:20:04--> 00:20:17

as simple as that. But hustle and bustle used to say, the debt is this, this debt is one thing, nobody has done it. all humanity knows for sure that they will die.

00:20:18--> 00:20:36

But treating dead as if it is the most, the most doubtful thing and lifting each other, there is no cheating death and final destination movies, stuff like that, you know, that doesn't work in real life, like, I'm cheating that we don't cheat nothing.

00:20:39--> 00:20:40

In

00:20:42--> 00:20:46

the destiny of Britain already, one there is

00:20:48--> 00:20:58

a story that the engine of death when he visited profits of a man, he saw a man in his in his game, the gathering, and he looked strict his eyes and

00:21:01--> 00:21:04

looking to me, you know, I don't want to be sitting here he

00:21:05--> 00:21:37

gave him a power to have control over Tinder or the wind and he said, I want to live far away from you. And he sent him to a country follow from virtually my lips. The next time he told the angel of death. My friend who was here, he said, he said so and so person you looked strangers eyes, and he got scared. Is it not a surprise? To find him in new palace? He said, Why is it because I was supposed to go take his soul from such and such land. Once he was sent to it.

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

I was surprised to see him here. And somehow this man want to run away from death here on the way to the place for people to die.

00:21:52--> 00:22:06

The person a moment will come where he realized how short this line is that he can sit in front of you like like a movie going very fast.

00:22:09--> 00:22:23

Do you want me to prove to you that live animal no matter how long your life is short? Have you ever tried this you can try it even now. Try to close your eyes and think about the last year

00:22:25--> 00:22:29

trying to close your eyes. And trying to think about the last year what happened last year

00:22:42--> 00:22:42

was done.

00:22:45--> 00:22:47

While you guys have a lot of detail.

00:22:49--> 00:23:33

Did you say you're able to remember things were two h each day was 24 hours was the first moment now when you look at it back. You can think about the last 10 years and maybe one minute. It's slightly short. No matter how you you limit in the interface. It looks like that. Like when you close your eyes. Think about the last year you don't remember all these hours and days. Just remember that incident. And when you come to death, you just see the slide in front of you running very fast. And that's where you leave this dunya behind. You leave the studio behind. And nobody can nobody knows with an hour on where he or she will die.

00:23:35--> 00:23:38

A friend of mine a doctor. He said

00:23:39--> 00:23:55

a girl she's about in her early 20s I drove I signed the discharge papers so she can leave the hospital. She's fine. Everything came back from the lab fine. He said it's five minutes or less. She got a heart attack and she died in the hospital.

00:23:59--> 00:24:07

I am wrong back to the to the room and I saw a face different than the face. I just passed by not long time ago. She don't She thought that this

00:24:08--> 00:24:11

you know, made him with nascita.

00:24:12--> 00:24:24

And so many people thought that they will never die this time and the dying displace. In this particular moment, a lot of people think that they will die and they never died the time that they thought they are going to die.

00:24:25--> 00:24:26

And I'm not giving

00:24:27--> 00:24:59

that death the mystery. That's what a medic saw. He sold his dream the angel of death. He said to him when I'm gonna die. He told him like this Solomon Mulligan scared what that five years, five months. Five days was exactly. So he asked one of the great scholars of interpret dreams have been serious and what that means. He said yeah, man, the angel of death was telling you there's five things a lot only knows when they will take place. And one of them when you're going to die. Nobody knows. Even the doctor doesn't know. He only knew

00:25:02--> 00:25:50

So when a believer that won't come, which is an experience you never ever experienced before, something for the first time, we never had somebody died and came back to us how that looks like, yes, somebody may be close to death is stuck for several minutes, then you bring them back to life. But somebody experienced the whole entire experience of death, we never had that you never had this experience before. It's for the first time in your life. First, to see angels. First time in your life to see your own soul, that inside your body, that is feeling when it's leaving the body. And it is such a hard process when it comes to leaving your body because you're so attached to your body

00:25:50--> 00:26:29

for all these years. For God's sake, if you have a shirt, okay, that you love so much, and you wearing it for a long time. And you want to get now to want to get rid of it to throw it away because you saw it. That's true. It's very hard to give it away, you're still gonna keep this physical memory. It's such a good shirt. I was reading into this being so attached to it. That's a shirt that's a shoes, a piece of jewelry. What if a friend What about your own soul in your own body? That's why the death that comes with the death is hard. Because separating the soul from the body, to all this years of attachment is such hard thing.

00:26:32--> 00:26:50

And when this take place, a lot of parents are telling us about the believers experience. And that's the beautiful thing about being Muslim. Which Yes, there is a lot of things we never experienced ourselves. But Allah told us in details how things would go. Allah Subhana Allah describing the belief by saying

00:27:00--> 00:27:00

that

00:27:18--> 00:27:19

to

00:27:21--> 00:27:26

those who believe in Allah, those who have faith and they believe in Allah

00:27:28--> 00:27:31

was steadfast they were holding tight to the Lord.

00:27:32--> 00:27:36

At the moment of birth, the angels will be descending

00:27:37--> 00:28:00

the angel which is take the soul of the body with it another angels, the aims of nursing, praying free and giving you a glass of two things. And the latter half Don't be scared afraid. Because he didn't know what's next and human always afraid from the thing that you're not aware of know what's gonna happen next.

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

So he said Don't be scared.

00:28:04--> 00:28:10

And don't be sad. Don't be sad for whatever you're gonna leave behind you. Your family and wealth

00:28:11--> 00:28:30

fund whatever you think you're gonna leave behind. Whatever make us feel sad how can it leave us Don't be sad. Because what is coming next is way better than what you left behind. what's coming next is not something you should be scared of. Those who believe and those who subtasks

00:28:35--> 00:28:36

and and that moment

00:28:37--> 00:28:43

the believers soul leaves the body the profits of them said it's like

00:28:45--> 00:28:48

I don't want to go into the audience. Just

00:28:51--> 00:28:52

to see how small

00:28:53--> 00:28:58

the profits are solid it can map it's like the water that goes out of the

00:29:01--> 00:29:02

just smooth

00:29:05--> 00:29:05

drink.

00:29:14--> 00:29:21

So the believer soul leaves the body in a very smooth way can not even face

00:29:23--> 00:29:27

like this the water coming out of them. Basically that

00:29:28--> 00:29:35

fast or the container very smooth, very smooth. And the moment at least a two

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

hour wait what I have what have been lovely leave it in a band, leave the soul and and they will pray for this to consult in love. Leave the spot and they will take the solid said you will be going to a place full of imaginary world and gardens and your Lord is pleased with you.

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

Then the moment the believer at that moment, won't be told will be told about what he or she expect from us and Peridot and purpose. at that particular moment, the Prophet Solomon said, there is no believer will ever wish to go back to this morning. at that particular moment, no believer will ever wish to go back to the world. At that moment, he said, I want to go back. That's a different case.

00:30:30--> 00:31:17

At that moment in that means what you see in front of you is not very pleasant. It's a scary thing, and you want to go back. But the true believers of that time, they will be looking forward to next. And the angel will take the soul of the believer, and the smell of that soul will be so good to be extinct. Every angels in the heavens would say, I wish that this so passed by me to visit, just enjoy this, to looking at it, and to enjoy that fragrance coming out of that soul, until they take it all the way up in the prisons of philosophy. And the prisons of the Almighty, Allah subhanaw taala will say, take it back, because I promised them that this is their air of the earth, that they

00:31:17--> 00:32:03

will come back from it, they will be disrupted from this earth. Then after that the soul, the soul won't be reattached to the body without entrainment reattached to the bottom of the country, it's a Muslim, the process of himself the soul of the believer will be above the body until the body will be buried. After the barrel of the body, the soul goes to another place of Turkey later. So the soul be attached to the body until they do the funeral prayer and totally put the pair of the basically the body in the grave. And when the person place in his grave, Allah subhana wa tada will send into question the believer to ask them three questions and the great. Who's?

00:32:04--> 00:32:14

Who's the one that you worship? Who's the one that is your messenger? And what is your budget? Yes, it seems to be easy to say, who's your What? What's your

00:32:16--> 00:32:51

hammer, it's easy to say, but in the grave, you will only be able to answer based on your belief. And for us as Muslim believers, not words of mouth. If not feelings, believe it means that certain entity in the heart and actions that the Muslim practices religion that will believe is that believers, so as much as the person committed and practicing as much as his answer will be firm and easy. I have another doctor who work in the ER and

00:32:52--> 00:33:11

he said Shall I give Shahada I give I say to 21 persons died in front of me. Over my course of the period of time that I've been working in this country, he said 21 of them. I told them c'est la ilaha illAllah. I know they can hear it.

00:33:12--> 00:33:18

He said maybe three only were able to say it and the rest will say something else. I say say

00:33:20--> 00:33:31

Dr. Mom, this money and some of them sing and some of them say things I like that. He said when he said well I know the person very good.

00:33:32--> 00:33:41

Maybe three he said this makes me so yes, it sounds easy. But at that moment, what truly speaks is your faith is not your tongue anymore.

00:33:43--> 00:33:48

so to speak, is your soul not your body anymore? And the believer will answer as

00:33:50--> 00:33:50

you

00:33:56--> 00:33:56

BGP

00:34:10--> 00:34:11

Allah support and

00:34:12--> 00:34:21

the believers with the right answer in the dunya it means in that in the grave, and they are after when they stand before them and when one question you

00:34:22--> 00:34:47

so the believer will say, or be a law, my lord is a law. My profit is Hamlet's all sudden, my religion is at the center, and Angel. Well tell him the club title that came from heavens and be super mean and tender. Why free should a woman agenda dress him from gentlemen? The soul will be dressed by a special club and materials mate engine.

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

Basically his grave what became cool and white and he will see someone have a very good looking someone coming

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

Towards this blue line, then the person who's great would say, Who is this person, then doctor will say,

00:35:08--> 00:35:56

good deeds, and your good deeds, on your charity, on the smile that you give it to your brother, your sister on the help that you offer the day, um, the prayer that you made on this account that you give, I am the first thing that you did the number one I am this and this contains to tell you when you organize this and the purpose of all this good deeds that we do, to come in the shape of a person, we're very good looking to comfort to give you a company in that place, and a person in the believer so as the prophets or something said nessa to move them in bar, it will never position, gentlemen, the believers saw will be taken will be turned on take the shape of a bird and it will be

00:35:56--> 00:36:20

sitting on the trees of Paradise until the death resurrection comes. For the believers the prophets are seldom said the whole entire period between death and resurrection for the no matter when you die. And this is very interesting. And because basically, if you look at our water demand here, it wouldn't make sense. But in certain circumstances, but

00:36:21--> 00:36:34

in there, we talked about the order of unseen things of totally different the concept of time is different. The province of Southern giving us the example set from the time of your death and destruction. It feels like between

00:36:36--> 00:36:46

smooth No matter if you die 1000 years ago, what do you die from now? For anyone because the type of enjoyment you can feel the time

00:36:47--> 00:37:14

you're not sure if somebody enjoying this lecture wouldn't know that that has been a really how many minutes? I don't even know because I'm in jungle. So but somebody is not very interested. Wow, it's been a long time. So that's, that's, that's basically very common. When you enjoy something you don't feel even the time you don't feel the time until a day will come when Allah subhanaw taala reservoir people from

00:37:15--> 00:37:16

say,

00:37:17--> 00:37:20

Allah, Allah created us with two things.

00:37:21--> 00:37:26

He created us with soul and body, soul. So I'm Heidi.

00:37:27--> 00:37:47

And in created for us three times of life. First of all, this worldly life, most of the joys and the enjoyment and the fun and the happiness, and the sadness and the troubles and the battles related to the body, mainly to the body, not on the soul.

00:37:49--> 00:38:00

And when it comes to the grave, it's the opposite. The body soon will vanish and punishment and the reward in the grave mainly to the soul not to the body.

00:38:01--> 00:38:20

But when you come to him after in Paradise, or Hellfire Milla protect you on all of us, in Paradise and Hellfire, the enjoyment and the punishment, that word, basically, that suffering is equally distributed between the body and the soul.

00:38:21--> 00:38:22

So just

00:38:23--> 00:38:29

equally distributed between the soul and the body. So what the last panel

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

came with the altar. And there is a reduction when people visit our

00:38:39--> 00:38:50

convention, every single person come out of this earth. That's why I'll call this earth me had that. Do you know the verse had a match? I

00:38:51--> 00:38:55

mean, one of the meaning of rehab men between the crib

00:38:57--> 00:39:02

where do you put the big men because we call the crib, because it is very smooth.

00:39:04--> 00:39:43

Okay, it's very smooth. That's like he stretches and level up. Yes, that's what mean what also didn't have indication, it is like the crib because Earth is like mother. It's like, mother to us. It's like giving birth to us. That's why even in Kabbalah, in Arabic language, a lot of poetry talk referred to, as we say English Mother Earth, Mother Nature. Same exactly what's used in urban and discursive because one of the meaning because Mother Earth because it gives us birth in the division. It's like giving birth doesn't kill we coming out of it. We're coming out of it. Exactly the same way you came out of your mother.

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

Allah subhana wa tada said

00:39:48--> 00:39:49

Why? Oh my god.

00:40:20--> 00:40:38

Warm them the day when a ma would alter the term with to implode. And you will see that everybody in the earth and the heavens terrified, except through those who have lost some kind of battle well, that you will not feel that day, they will not have any fear.

00:40:39--> 00:40:50

Even though people terrified everywhere I was going to give the example that you see the mountain the mountain turned to be like SAP like clouds, like clouds.

00:40:52--> 00:41:01

Now chilly, chilly when you hear about the earthquake, when you see these big buildings moving and ship just moving. You get scared to death.

00:41:02--> 00:41:06

When you see the mountain, about mountains, big mountains

00:41:08--> 00:41:12

and then turn to like dust or like to look like a garage or look at like clouds.

00:41:48--> 00:42:07

When the bread the moment who breastfeed will leave her baby, an infant can imagine that it's not like a kid to six or 10 or 15, which is very difficult to leave. But even the infant that suckle from her breast, she will put him down and will leave running to protect herself.

00:42:09--> 00:42:27

And the pregnant woman from basically lay down her load, she will be leaving her loads coming out of her because of the theme. You see people look like Trump like they don't know where they're going. And there is nothing wrong with them except that they are scared. They are scared.

00:42:29--> 00:42:37

And that day, my brothers and sisters were people regret the only thing that they did what they

00:42:39--> 00:43:16

saw the day of regret. When people regret the days that they wasted the money. The only thing that they did in life, that they didn't take advantage of life. What happened in that, in that's David also described in so many verses. What happened to the believers? What happened to the belief, very simple. Allah Subhana Allah told us about those who feel that they have judgment today. Now meaning you who feel this day today who thinking about today who are preparing himself for that day, Allah subhanaw taala told us about the believer,

00:43:37--> 00:43:44

the hungry and to the needy, the poor people for what, because we feel that they have judgment.

00:43:51--> 00:44:37

A lot protect them from the evil that day. That's the result. That's the result but also Canada or protective of the profits of southern city of La will never let you feel the judgment twice. If you feel today, you safe tomorrow. If you care about it today, if it never crossed your mind when you about to do it. When you're about to say or to eat or to consume or to do what is wrong and what does evil and you notice not allow you to do it. But she never cared about the day of judgment that day you fear that you will experience that for you. But if you today, protect yourself and you feel that day Allah said

00:44:46--> 00:44:50

not scared that that day an angel will come approach them.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

This is the day you can promise this is the day you bet

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

Promise.

00:45:02--> 00:45:12

My brothers and sisters that day people taking the books handle the books. And the believer, they take the books with the right hand in front of them with all the

00:45:13--> 00:45:20

other tickets with the left from behind the back while facing down to leave and take the book. And guess what you have

00:45:27--> 00:45:27

to

00:45:32--> 00:45:32

read my book.

00:45:35--> 00:45:49

Good things I used to do this way with this kid, I used to be good to other I used to be a person who always people expect nothing from him except what is good.

00:45:52--> 00:45:59

In neither of them to me, I've always believed believe that one day I will come and it will be judged for my actions.

00:46:01--> 00:46:06

The moment take this book, and in it Allah subhana wa tada in the end would say,

00:46:07--> 00:46:09

the end it will say

00:46:10--> 00:46:13

this, so also my serve and so on. So

00:46:14--> 00:46:17

he has the right to go to

00:46:18--> 00:46:24

the very high level of Paradise to a very high place, which is the paradise which is the paradise.

00:46:25--> 00:46:57

In this book, as I said we read it when you look at it. You see all the words of deceased offer last pilot, the salaat that you made the tears that one day maybe fall in your cheek when you raise your hand and you said yeah, a lot and I've done this and that forgiving me. In this book, you see the mercy of your Lord, when a lot of weight your deeds. Can you imagine the Prophet sallahu wa sallam said, any one of us will do good deeds, a las panatela multiply 10 times multiply it for you 10 times.

00:46:59--> 00:47:25

So if you the province of Muslims, for instance, if you say before, before you go to bed before you go to bed, Subhanallah 33 times 133 times a lot about 34 times how many of these 100 he sets off Salah, this is 100 by your tongue, but it will be 1000 in your in your in your day.

00:47:27--> 00:47:32

Then the process after each and every salon, you say 10 times

00:47:33--> 00:47:38

10 times allow about 10 times five times how many of those

00:47:40--> 00:47:52

under them, if you multiply those that will be 1500. Then the Prophet said, Who among you commit 2500 sins every day?

00:47:53--> 00:48:17

There is somebody some people do. But most of the people that don't have that much sense every day to 2500 reward. You know how it works. One we weren't one cent so we did so much you weren't like does that means that chance is very high for you to go to Paradise. That's why I swear basketball, only real loser go to hell.

00:48:19--> 00:48:24

Because the chance to go to Paradise is very high on what it takes me just to act

00:48:26--> 00:48:28

on what it takes me to act

00:48:29--> 00:48:36

as the prophets of Allah said, some of them if you walk to me, I won't run to you.

00:48:39--> 00:48:43

That's all of it that is really to work towards towards them.

00:48:45--> 00:48:46

And

00:48:48--> 00:48:52

the believer angels come to them and tell them them at that moment

00:48:54--> 00:48:56

and pointing them toward

00:48:57--> 00:48:59

towards a gym want

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

to

00:49:11--> 00:49:33

call upon the believers, all of us sitting there waiting, and the call was said gentlemen, is there this is a word for what to use to claim say, No. What do you use to do actions which really determine withdraw? You know,

00:49:41--> 00:49:42

Henry Ford said once

00:49:45--> 00:49:50

your promises will not build your reputation. But actually

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

your reputation will never come from promises that will come only from action from your actions that will thrill

00:50:00--> 00:50:44

build your reputation. If you keep saying I will do this, I will do that you don't know the reputation by your protection only by your actions. So you position in agenda in front of a lot is not going to be built by I am good, I'm good, I'm good, it's fine, you will really be good. You really be doing what is right and what is correct. Okay. So, Angela will say this is the word for what to use to do not to claim to do and this would be like, then people intergender, the province of Southern said there is a day will come and the gates of gender will be crowd of people love even one gate, the profit of some cities as big as between the East and the West, like a horizon, and one

00:50:44--> 00:50:46

day will come and people crowded that gate.

00:50:48--> 00:50:54

The traffic, jam traffic at the gate, people entering to the gym. And also,

00:50:55--> 00:50:57

the angel told me said

00:51:00--> 00:51:10

this is a lot of self cleaning that was set up welcome greeting the believers after the cross the bridge, and they see that you enter it.

00:51:13--> 00:51:58

Before that, before even entering gender, I forgot to mention people who cross the bridge as fast as basically 30. If there are very righteous, very good, they cross paths. And people cross it like the light, like the wind, like the horses, the process of them, people running under these people crawling people falling off and hanging and coming back until they survive. Based on your detail. Good You are on this borderline. But there is an arch bridge called insane Buhari Muslim, the Hadith where the prophets of Southern said and that are spread the believer, if there is something between both of them between two believers, they will settle this problem with you. If I took your money, if

00:51:58--> 00:52:40

I took something from you back by two, you said things about about you and your opposite coasts traveled to you. This is the time where we take care of us and the process of observing the worst person at that time, the route the real loser that the person would pass all of this and that particular place. People will say yes, he is to say this about me. He used to send emails about me, he used to say things bad about me in his Facebook and her Twitter, she said this about me and sweating about this and all this gossip and you know sins and stuff between humans. And that moment people basically, I need from you what your good deeds, what it means to take from my good deeds.

00:52:41--> 00:52:45

Two things I go long gentlemen, my load will go down. And

00:52:47--> 00:52:49

the more if I run out of concrete,

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

you know what I can see from my

00:52:53--> 00:52:58

sense, what that means I go higher, and you go lower in

00:53:00--> 00:53:05

the practice, having said that, a person will run out of all entities, then he will be taken back to home.

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

And in the process of himself, that alone will ask to two people will be basically that person said out loud, this person doesn't deserve to go to terminal. He did this and this and that to me, and they won't make it work for me. I want to take from his good deeds, revenge than a lot will tell both of them raise your hands up. Then they look and he said to the one who want to be abused in this world. And he will tell him Do you see in front of you that he suggests I see. This is a great palace. It's like gardens this place must decent Do you know this floor? He said no. I don't know who's this for the Allah. It must be for a prophet or a messenger somebody like very special than a

00:53:54--> 00:54:02

level say this place today for those who are willing to give or to forgive their brothers and sisters

00:54:07--> 00:54:08

cry.

00:54:10--> 00:54:11

He

00:54:12--> 00:54:28

has words were mixed with tears when he said that. He said a lot right reconciliation between people and judgment. So you Muslim, you should try to reconciliation between people in this world.

00:54:32--> 00:54:46

People into gentlemen. And in 10 world things cannot be everything you can imagine everything you wish you get. You'll never get sick. You'll never get sick of sick.

00:54:47--> 00:54:59

You never get tired. You'll never get to Beijing every time you lift for infinity. It's like living without any and nothing for everything.

00:55:00--> 00:55:10

Change, everything change, Allah subhana wa engender, will tell us about agenda about the people of 10 feet and

00:55:14--> 00:55:15

the people turning them

00:55:17--> 00:55:17

further

00:55:19--> 00:55:19

down

00:55:34--> 00:55:36

the people gender, you

00:55:40--> 00:55:42

the people who feel

00:55:46--> 00:55:47

the people of gender

00:55:54--> 00:55:58

in the close read, just go ahead and read

00:55:59--> 00:56:10

and see how we're describing details. When the train was the were with the house, he said, with the orange shade, and the beautiful weather everything else

00:56:11--> 00:56:14

about how people enjoy themselves in paradise.

00:56:16--> 00:56:18

I just end with one

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

word

00:56:22--> 00:56:36

I want you to describe to me, the paradise. To me, the person the last person interpret is the one who will be living in the lowest level of organizing what he will get, or she will get

00:56:37--> 00:56:38

the one at the bottom.

00:56:40--> 00:56:41

Then a lot of

00:56:42--> 00:57:33

that will be a person, he will be in the top level of Hellfire and almost panic to Allah will allow him to leave the hellfire. But he still feel the heat and see that the fire is on. So that person would say Oh Allah, would you please let me be in a very far away from the outside world, they cannot see they can smell it. I don't want to feel it or hear it or hear the people screaming inside. I just want to be far away from them. Then Ulsan would you ask for anything else? He said no. If you do this to me, I'm fine for the rest of my life. I don't want anything else that alone will follow faraway under a tree where he can see paradise from a distance. After a while he said

00:57:33--> 00:57:33

Oh,

00:57:35--> 00:57:37

can you put me at the gate of paradise?

00:57:38--> 00:58:03

To really be able to smell the fragrance of Paradise to see the people inside? Then I must admit has promised me anything you don't like to ask for anything else. He said that said no. No more requests, would you promise me he said I promise. There are moments and be at the gate of paradise. And while he is in the kitchen looking at inside paradise, that gets to see people living inside, you sit down.

00:58:04--> 00:58:06

Just literally put foot

00:58:08--> 00:58:15

inside the inside the skate. The last palitana will laugh and say to him, mark

00:58:17--> 00:58:32

your promises. Some of you promised me you don't want me. And now I want this. He said y'all know Justin unteren nothing else. The process of them said this is the last person to entertain. And the gate will be closed after.

00:58:33--> 00:58:46

After that person. And the process I'm sick when he walked into that did not allow or said to that person wish What do you want? He said I wish this and this and that is it wish they say they want this

00:58:48--> 00:58:58

and what else? There isn't this and this and it goes like this exactly. Then you said that said he said that said for you that killer who loves the Mac and he

00:58:59--> 00:59:07

reminds him of things that he used to live in this world they live but he forgot to mention someone said to him What about this and this he said he

00:59:08--> 00:59:30

said he would basically even saved them the profits after he finished allow our world give you all what you ask for. And I will give you even equal to what the most richest, famous person ever lived on this earth used to have.

00:59:31--> 00:59:32

That he said

00:59:34--> 00:59:35

you making fun of me and you

00:59:37--> 00:59:39

see the human beings are human beings. It

00:59:41--> 00:59:45

is it you make it for me even even any human can

00:59:47--> 00:59:48

you make fun of me.

00:59:49--> 00:59:59

He couldn't believe that. He can get that amount would say and I will multiply it for you. I will multiply for you. I will multiply five times

01:00:00--> 01:00:03

This is the least amount of thing that you can get.

01:00:04--> 01:00:22

You know, whatever. I swear by Allah. The same question that Moosa asked a lot even before I read it. Before I read it, I came to my mind when I think some of you thinking about the same question, which is, if this is the lowest amount of reward, what about?

01:00:24--> 01:00:27

He said, what about the highest than the last one, this agenda?

01:00:29--> 01:01:05

I have created my own hand, I planted the tree in that paradise with my own hand, I have made it for the righteousness of my servants. In it things No words can describe. Because why No words can describe because anything's never seen before. Never heard of before, never imagined before. Do you know what that means? Because you cannot understand anything until unless it has a common meaning between me and key like if I tell you in what we have in Texas, column, the foolish

01:01:07--> 01:01:08

because when some

01:01:17--> 01:01:18

excuse me,

01:01:19--> 01:01:21

everything possible in Texas.

01:01:23--> 01:01:27

It makes any sense to anybody here are excited about

01:01:29--> 01:01:30

it.

01:01:31--> 01:02:06

Let's write why because it doesn't have any meaning. So because you never heard this word before. You've never seen this before. So that exactly if I describe to you your Moosa, what's in this paradise? Yes, I can describe you in general, what you're familiar with. There is fruits, there is trees, there is rivers, you familiar with that. But if I mentioned other things that I can eat, never seen, even if I mentioned the name of it, it wouldn't make sense to you. So no point from mentioning the name of it, you only get to see it and that time you know what it is? You know what it is?

01:02:07--> 01:02:12

So, my dear brothers and sisters, this paradise is something you don't mess.

01:02:15--> 01:02:28

This is a goal that you cannot underestimate. This is a goal. That's why the prophecies that if you ask them, don't ask him just a genuine asking the highest level, aim high. You remember

01:02:30--> 01:02:30

when

01:02:32--> 01:02:36

there was any one will be called from the eight gates of paradise? He said, Yes.

01:02:37--> 01:02:43

He wants to be called from the eight gates of paradise. How many gates have been completed from

01:02:44--> 01:02:44

one?

01:02:46--> 01:02:47

What do you want to be called from the

01:02:48--> 01:03:05

one legs in one door and one arm from one door and his head from one gate? He can interfere? Why do you want to be called from the eight gates because you want to be the one he made the choice. That's how he ends hot water for us from the window just

01:03:09--> 01:03:23

underneath the door, push me in whatever addiction, but he's not like that is aiming to the highest level of gentleman. He wants to achieve the highest goal.

01:03:25--> 01:03:27

That's why my brothers and sisters

01:03:28--> 01:03:39

that's a place that we don't want to miss. That the place where the rest for the rest of your life. That's where you fulfill every charm that you can think of.

01:03:40--> 01:03:41

That's the place where it was

01:03:44--> 01:03:45

01:03:46--> 01:03:58

to be daddy cafeteria for Ohio new management. This is the name of the bounty of a law that there is no bounty beyond it. And you'll be able finally to meet

01:03:59--> 01:04:08

01:04:12--> 01:04:13

in the

01:04:15--> 01:04:19

delivery. And the profit of Southern said you have

01:04:20--> 01:04:21

to make

01:04:25--> 01:04:29

a loan talk directly to every person in general, one to one.

01:04:30--> 01:04:38

Nothing beyond this, that all that you worship all your life, finally get to meet him. So that's why

01:04:43--> 01:04:48

I asked you that enjoyment of looking at your face. This is an enjoyment, nothing beyond

01:04:50--> 01:04:54

and that's the highest things that the person can ever achieve in paradise.

01:04:56--> 01:04:58

Lost Planet Allah make us among the people

01:04:59--> 01:04:59

around him.

01:05:00--> 01:05:06

Make us among those who work hard, because paradise needs from us a commitment

01:05:08--> 01:05:14

upon his death, he said to the Muslims at that time, and to all of us, he said,

01:05:19--> 01:05:50

the last kind of data that we have prepared for you in general, in next life is so high is so valuable, which is paradise, and it needs for you to work hard for it. And always about the side. I shared this story with some of you when I was teaching brace of faith before but I think it's a very effective story. And it's funny but it's truly has a great meaning that I hope that I leave you with tonight

01:05:51--> 01:05:58

which is a friend of mine was once shooting an episode two recorded the basically recording a lecture

01:05:59--> 01:06:16

and it was from Milan people spiritually very high motivated. And my friend every 1520 minutes the camera man is a very heavy smoker. He also goes outside to smoke and come back. So my friend asked him why don't quit smoking.

01:06:17--> 01:06:22

Then he said like any smoker ever seen in my life so far, this they have the same answer.

01:06:24--> 01:06:32

I told Why don't smoke smoke a quit smoke is a chef and dirty. Pray for me. That's all the time pray for me.

01:06:36--> 01:06:54

I don't mind but you have to act 18 so that my friend said them to come he took him they open the window you can see the Kappa 30 Coronavirus, lost in discipline with him. And he said I raised my hand and he said, Oh Allah I asked you by your name of Rahim and medical.

01:06:56--> 01:07:37

Every single name and attribute I can think of it that that came into my mind. And I stopped mentioning them one after another and praising the Almighty Allah and glorifying him. The man was so moved to start crying his tusq everybody in the room was so moved cry. Very easy. I myself was very moved by that. And I start asking ALLAH, give him this and do this. And this to me. Anything you can think of good that can happen to any person, the smile, I mentioned it from health to wealth to family, children in something in the near future. Anything this dog alive, the next guy was completely

01:07:38--> 01:07:40

removed by that crime.

01:07:43--> 01:07:49

And internet dentist said, Don't give him anything from all of this. If he doesn't quit smoking.

01:07:54--> 01:07:55

He said the guy was saying

01:08:03--> 01:08:04

Do you know he never sent me?

01:08:08--> 01:08:08

a pause.

01:08:10--> 01:08:10

Do you know why?

01:08:12--> 01:08:14

Because he was not ready to quit smoking.

01:08:16--> 01:08:19

He said pray for me. We're just

01:08:22--> 01:08:24

listen to me from his heart.

01:08:26--> 01:08:28

And there are so many of us like this

01:08:29--> 01:08:30

stock

01:08:32--> 01:08:36

but to act to be committed to make that decision

01:08:38--> 01:08:39
