oh all

00:04:41--> 00:05:00

Alhamdulillah exalted be the name of Allah the Majestic the most high we put our trust in him and upon Him do we rely? It is he who forgives our sins and our Souls does He purify? He revealed to us his book whose recitation with our voices

00:05:00--> 00:05:50

We Beautify. And he sent us a messenger who sunnah we try to exemplify. And he blessed us with the Shetty that we try to live by May Salatu Salam be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam to whose prophethood we all testify. Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam have the most beautiful traditions that summarizes for us the philosophy of our religion, when it comes to doing good deeds is an aeration in the Sunnah of a tell me the reported by Abu Hurayrah the Allahu Taala and in which he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, burn the ruble armory seven. Hasten to do good things before seven things that might befall you badru rush, hasten Don't delay. If a thought

00:05:50--> 00:06:36

comes to pray too fast to give charity, if you have an inclination to do something good, do not delay it, or else Something might happen to come between you and the good deed. And then the Prophet sallallahu either he was seldom mentioned seven matters, five of which occurred to each and every one of us throughout our lives, one of which is a catastrophe of a global nature. And then one is the end of times, he said hastened to do good deeds before one of seven things happen to you. Number one, he said hold on padrona Allah Quran Moon See ya. Are you waiting for you to become so poor, that you are not able to do anything other than earn your money? Because at times of economic

00:06:36--> 00:07:17

strife, at times of crises, we are so troubled by how are we going to pay the rent? How am I going to take care of my family that our concentration in a bar that goes down or concentration and Salah goes down? It shouldn't but it does. So our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Are you waiting until a catastrophe comes of an economic nature that will cause you to forget everything else? That is the first thing number two, he said, Oh, Linden malaria, or are you waiting until you have so much wealth, that the wealth diverts you away from the worship of Allah. This is the problem. too little or too much both is a fitna. If you have too little money, you're eager to get

00:07:17--> 00:07:59

money, you're not able to live without that money. The moment you get more than you need surplus you spend on the dunya and when you spend on the dunya, your heart becomes hard. So our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us how weak is the son of Adam, how weak is mankind. When he doesn't have money? He is preoccupied when he has money, he is preoccupied. So why wait for wealth, put wealth aside and be continuous in the worship of Allah. Whether you have low wealth, whether you have high wealth, there will never be a time when the wealth is absolutely perfect for you, you either have not enough or you have more than your needs. And in both cases, ShaVonne comes to you

00:07:59--> 00:08:42

and shaytaan causes you to be diverted from the worship of Allah. So number one, focus on Mon Seiya poverty that will cause you to forget number two Linna and monthly, a richness that will cause you to be diverted away from the path number three Mehraban moves Siddha a sickness that will debilitate you a sickness that will cause you to be in your bed, you won't be able to do anything. Look around us now the pandemic is spreading far and wide. Those that fall sick are put into quarantine. Some of them are not able to survive. What are we waiting for? To be afflicted by this? No, we have to continue to do good deeds sickness comes and goes and our good deeds have to continue. So the third

00:08:42--> 00:09:24

thing he said what are you waiting for a sickness that will debilitate you. Number four he said oh haram and muffiny da, or old age that will cause you to forget old age that you're going to be so weak, so infirm that you cannot live the life that you wanted to live. So will you continue to delay tomorrow I'll be a good person when I read 60 I'll become righteous when I get to 70 I'll go for urge to what level will you keep on procrastinating? To what age will you keep on delaying what is the point because even if you live a long life, by the time you get to that age, you will no longer have the energy you won't even probably have the mental faculties to worship Allah subhana wa Tada

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

properly. So the Prophet sallallahu I sent him a saying what are you waiting for old age that will cause you to become infirm that will cause you to not act rationally anymore. And Allah tells us in the Quran, that the way He created us is that we began in weakness we rise up in strength and then we shall return to weakness as he created us. Allah created us from birth from weakness then from love. Allah said I gave you I gave you strength. Then Allah says after strength comes again weakness and old age. This is the Sunnah of Allah. Allah tells us in the Quran. Look at this moon the cycle of the moon

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

Allah says that is the cycle of your life. You start small and weak, you start flimsy, you become strong. And then once that strength reaches its pinnacle, then the descent begins just like it began in the first of your life. So the prophets of Allah who I sent him is reminding us, what are you waiting for old age, you're not going to become religious and righteous, suddenly, at the age when you're 60 7080 begin right here and now do not delay and procrastinate. Number five, he says, what else are you waiting for? Are you waiting for a motor and moods his or a sudden death, a death that is unexpected, a death that you do not plan for? These are the five things that all of us shall

00:10:38--> 00:11:21

experience the five things that are the cycles of life, poverty, and richness and sickness and old age and a death that is unexpected, and all death is unexpected. Even the one who falls sick as in his given the time to live, he does not know exactly when the time will come. But in particular, the sudden death reference is the one who was not even willing or prepared. He had no idea that death is going to come every single day, we get a phone call or a news that so and so passed away. Just last week, a friend of mine passed away in an accident, completely unexpected, completely unknown, and is just a young man and it just happens like this. This is the most that is mooches it is the death

00:11:22--> 00:12:00

that is completely unexpected. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us, what are you waiting for? What are you delaying the time of piety, the time of righteousness shaytaan comes in and says tomorrow I'm going to be a better person. What is tomorrow? tomorrow never comes. So the fifth thing that he reminded us, are you waiting for a sudden death because that's never ever going to be prepared? And then he said The sixth thing that will cause you to waken up from your slumber slumber. He said are you waiting for the journal or with the journal so that the journal for short Rouhani by noon tomorrow, that John is the most terrifying thing that anybody can wait for? You

00:12:00--> 00:12:39

think when the global calamity comes that will wake you up? It'll be too late. When did the journal comes? That is when you're going to become righteous and pious. That is the worst thing to be waiting for. That is point number six the global calamity. And then he said point number seven. He said oh is sad to facade to other ha What are you waiting for the day of judgment for the Day of Judgment is the biggest collapse catastrophe and it is the most bitter of all things to wait for this beautiful Hadith which is so eloquent so succinct. It is meant to shock us it is meant to awaken us from our slumber our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and the Arabic is so

00:12:39--> 00:13:23

beautiful bird ruble Armani Saba and Helton Tada Runa Illa Quran Moon sia Oh hidden most of the modern moves cedar Oh haram and move NIDA are mountain moat and Medusa with the Giroux for Shell Rohan Ibn Yun Tavar. We see eye to facade to other more seven things are mentioned each one of them should cause us to have that shock and awe factor and the first phase is what are Muslims hasten to do good deeds for what are you waiting for? What are you waiting for one of these seven things do you think that when they come they're gonna awaken you that is too late do deeds and be perpetual and deeds and be consistent in these before any of these seven happen and especially as we live

00:13:23--> 00:14:04

through the era of the pandemic we see so many of these right in front of our eyes, sicknesses and sudden death and poverty is we see it occurring around us. It's too late to wait until tomorrow. The hadith tells us very clearly religiosity piety, consistency in good deeds, that is not something that we delay we do it right here and now. So brothers and sisters, let us make that commitment to Allah let us renew our intention to Allah that let us have that lifestyle that is pleasing to Allah subhana wa Taala birds ruble Amman any good deed that we're able to do let us do this before any of these seven happens May Allah subhana wa Taala bless me and you within through the Quran and May He

00:14:04--> 00:14:13

make us of those who is versus they understand and implement halal and haram throughout our lifespan. I ask Allah's forgiveness you as well ask him for his dog or food and the ramen.

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

Alhamdulillah Halawa hadn't had a summit Ulladulla myriad what a Mueller Voila, Mia Kula hookah one had to do. There are some a hadith that tell us that thinking and analyzing before we act is from Allah. And there are other Hadith that tells us that procrastination is from Shavon. How do we reconcile? One set of a hadith says attach a name in Allah, thinking calmly and then acting is from Allah. Another set of traditions tells us that delaying is from Shavon which one is it? Our scholars say? When it comes to any good deed we should

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

not think twice we should act hastily. When it comes to any deed we see an opportunity we rush for it. We do not let Shavon planted doubts in our hearts, we saw an opportunity to give charity Bismillah give it we saw an opportunity to visit a person for the sake of Allah, we saw an opportunity to do any good deed. Do not double guests yourself. Go ahead and do it. That's why the verbs used this hadith says BAA doodle rush Allah says Sadhguru rindo. When the race Allah says faster before go rush and be quick, when it comes to doing good deeds, we do not double guests. But when it comes to issues of this world, when it comes to any decision that is of a dunya we nature

00:15:41--> 00:16:28

when it comes to this hastiness is from shape on hastiness is from shape on, we should think, and we should ask, and we should pray istikhara changing your job, changing careers, moving to a new location, any major decision that you need to make, do not be hasty in that decision. Think, ask, pray istikhara and then take your decision after not being hasty and this is the beauty of our faith. hastiness is something that is from shape on what it is with regards to this world if we act emotionally if we act spontaneously if we do something rashly, and then we're going to regret it later on that is from Shaytaan but hastiness when it comes to the to the deen Hastin it when it

00:16:28--> 00:17:09

comes to good deeds, that is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala because Shavon comes when I have a good idea, I want to do something shaytaan comes in gives me 20 excuses, the longer I let those excuses stay in my head, the less the chances are that I'm going to do those good deeds. So this is the beauty of our faith. Dear Muslims when it comes to the religion, do not procrastinate when it comes to the religion be hasty and do the good deed and when it comes to any major decision of this world, do not be hasty. Do not act emotionally. Do not act rationally. rather think and contemplate and get advice from the people and praise taharah to Allah and then act after you have

00:17:09--> 00:17:48

taken all of the proper decisions and that will be the blessing from Allah.
