Tip number seven

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

don't

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

Long,

00:00:29--> 00:00:33

long

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

Oh?

00:01:42--> 00:01:47

Oh,

00:01:57--> 00:02:09

oh,

00:03:37--> 00:03:45

oh

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

oh

00:04:07--> 00:04:58

Alhamdulillah Exalted be the name of a law of 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 we beautify, and he sent us a messenger who sooner we try to exemplify. And he blessed us with the Shetty that we try to live by May Sadat and Salam be upon Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to his 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 sunan of a Timothy reported by

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

herbal herbal rhodiola hotaka on

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

in which he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the ruble early Sabbath and hasten to do good things before seven things might befall you, bad zero rush, hasten Don't delay. If a thought 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, hasten to do good deeds before one of seven things happen to you.

00:05:46--> 00:06:30

Number one, he said held some pleasure una de la couronne 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 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, our concentration and salary 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 Zenon multimedia, or are you waiting

00:06:30--> 00:07:13

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 fit enough. If you have too little money, you're eager to get money, you're not able to live without that money. The moment you get more than you need surplus you spend on the dounia 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 a lot. Whether you have low wealth,

00:07:13--> 00:07:55

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, shavon comes to you and shaytaan causes you to be diverted from the worship of a lot. So number one, focus on one Seiya poverty that will cause you to forget, number two, learn and move to the richness that will cause you to be diverted away from the path. Number three Moroccan move Sita 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

00:07:55--> 00:08:37

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 thing he said what are you waiting for a sickness that will debilitate you. Number four he said Oh Ha Rahman woof, NIDA, 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? Well be a good person. When I reach 60 I'll become righteous when I get to 70. I'll go for edge to what level will you keep on procrastinating? To what age will you

00:08:37--> 00:09:17

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 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 Koran 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 a lot greater from birth from weakness, then from God, Allah said I gave you I gave you strength. Then Allah says, After

00:09:17--> 00:09:56

strength comes again weakness and old age. This is the son of Allah. Allah tells us in the Quran, look at this moon, the cycle of the moon, 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 Prophet sallallahu Sallam 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 molten

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

Miuccia a sudden death a death that is unexpected

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

Death that you do not plan for. These are the five things that all of us shall 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 is given the time to live, he does not know exactly when that 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

00:10:42--> 00:11:23

young man and it just happens like this. This is the mode that is mooches it is the death that is completely unexpected. So that Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us, what are you waiting for? What are you delaying that time of piety that time of righteousness shaitaan 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 jar or with the jar so that the jar for shall rojava noon tomorrow, that jar is

00:11:23--> 00:12:03

the most terrifying thing that anybody can wait for. You think when the global calamity comes, that will wake you up? It'll be too late when the job 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 always sad to facade to other What are you waiting for the day of judgment for the Day of Judgment is the biggest 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

00:12:03--> 00:12:48

said and the Arabic is so beautiful by the ruble 37 and held tanto de una Illa Quran moon sia ohana, Natalya our model and move Sita o Holloman move NIDA our mount Moulton Mu jeiza with dejavu for shelter or even Yun topper always to facade to other model seven things are mentioned each one of them should cause us to have that shock and awe factor. And the first phrase 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 in deeds and be consistent in deeds before any of these seven happen, and especially as we

00:12:48--> 00:13:30

live through the era of the pandemic, we see so many of these right in front of our eyes, sicknesses and sudden death and poverty as we see it occurring around us. It's too late to wait until tomorrow. The Hadees 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 tada birdorable Ahmad any good deed that were 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

00:13:30--> 00:13:39

make us of those who is vs. They understand and implement head out and held on throughout our lifespan. May I ask all those forgiveness you as well ask him for his love of food and the Rockman

00:13:49--> 00:14:35

Alhamdulillah Hello. And then I had a summit la de la mirada mula wollemi akula, Hakuna had Roberto, there are some ideas that tell us that thinking and analyzing before we act is from a law. And there are other ideas that tell us that procrastination is from shavon. How do we reconcile one set of ideas says unemotional law, thinking calmly and then acting is from a law? 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 not think twice we should act hastily. When it comes to any deed we see an opportunity we rushed for it. We do not let shape on planted doubts in our hearts. We saw an

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

opportunity to give charity This will 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 guess yourself. Go ahead and do it. That's why the verbs use this headache it says bad euro rush Allah says Sadhguru rindo when the race Allah says festival gold rush and be quick when it comes to doing good deeds. We do not double guests.

00:15:00--> 00:15:48

But when it comes to issues of this world, when it comes to any decision that is of a dunya we nature when it comes to this hastiness is from shavon hastiness is from shavon. We should think, and we should ask, and we should pray is Takara, 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, praise the hoorah 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 when it is with regards to this world. If we act emotionally, if we act spontaneously, if we do something rash sleep, and then we're going to regret

00:15:48--> 00:16:29

it later on that is from shavon, but hastiness when it comes to the deen hastin it when it comes to good deeds, that is a blessing from Allah subhana wa tada because shavon comes when I have a good idea, I want to do something shaitaan 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 their religion, do not procrastinate when it comes to their 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

00:16:29--> 00:17:09

contemplate and get advice from the people and praise to harder to Allah and then act after you have taken all of the proper decisions and that will be the blessing from Allah.
