Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah, he was happy to hear that it was said Mr. And eco rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

00:00:17--> 00:00:54

As I always and I always in my stream like this, and I in my stream saying, for you guys that yesterday is gone tomorrow might not ever come, today is the only day that you have. And that's where we're gonna start to try to remind all of you that you have to keep reminding yourself every single day that today is my only day yesterday is gone. Worrying about yesterday's problems is never going to fix anything unless you're learning from them to improve upon today or tomorrow, tomorrow is just an idea. tomorrow never comes it is always today, you have to keep reminding yourself today is all that I have everything that you want to do in your life

00:00:55--> 00:01:00

needs to happen today. You need to start it today. You need to prepare it today. You need to plan it today.

00:01:02--> 00:01:43

So May Allah bless all of you in this day. Remember, remind yourself that today is all that you have I have today, make today work for you in sha Allah, because one day, one day is going to be your last day, one day is going to come in, it's going to be your last day. It's going to be your last day. And I'm going to remind you of a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And this hadith talks about the last day of every person's life. And it talks about the two states that one person will be in on the day they meet their last day, on the day of your last day, you will leave this world in one of two ways. There is no third way and there is no other way. You will leave this world

00:01:43--> 00:02:09

on your last day. In one of two ways you will leave this world as one of those who believe or you leave this world is one of those who do not believe you will leave this world is one of those who are favored by Allah. Or you will leave this world as one of those who are under the anger and wrath of Allah subhana wa to Allah May Allah protect us from his anger and his wrath. May Allah protect us from his anger and his wrath. There is a hadith from But even as he read the Allahu Anwar

00:02:11--> 00:02:54

and I'm going to try to make this in as much of a story format as I can to make it understandable for you guys, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam talked about the believers first. He said, when the believers are about to depart from this world, and go forward into the next, angels, this is what happens to every believer, may Allah grant us this good ending, this is what is known as personal hottinger as a good ending, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that when the angels of death come to those who believe that angels with bright faces, angels with bright faces, they come and they descend, and and this person is able to see these things. When you start leaving this world when the

00:02:54--> 00:03:38

day of your death comes the Barack is put it before you and the veil between this world and the next starts being lifted, you start seeing the Acura, you start seeing the angels, you start seeing things that you never saw in your life. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that on the day of the believers, deaf, angels with bright faces will descend and they will fill out as far as the eyes can see, they will fill out as far as the eyes can see. And the angel of death, the Angel of Death comes and sits on their head, his or her head, the Angel of Death comes and sits on their head and says to them, oh good soul, oh good soul come out. So the Angel of Death commands that so Oh, good. So come

00:03:38--> 00:04:16

out to the pleasure of Allah and His forgiveness. May Allah allow us to reach this ending, the Angel of Death tells them come out to the pleasure of Allah and His forgiveness. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that the soul pours forth the same way that a water pours out of a jug or out of a container, it just comes out so easily. And then when the angel of death has grabbed it, and the other angels take a hold of it, they do not let it go. They are all want to touch it. They all want to hold it. They all want to carry it this beautiful soul that is that is favored by Allah subhanho wa Taala. They take it and they wrap it in a shroud that is perfumed from the sense of

00:04:16--> 00:04:54

Jana, they take this soul and they wrap it in a shroud that is scented from the perfumes of Jenna, and the sweetest smells that have ever been known on the faces Earth, they wrap the soul in this and then they start taking it, they start taking it up into the heavens, because this soul has to return to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they start taking into the heavens, once they reach the first heaven once they reach the first heaven, the gatekeeper of that heaven says Who is this good soul. And the angels start responding and saying this is so and so calling them by their name and the best of names which they were known in this world, calling them by Beautiful Names. This is so and so this

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

person was assaulted. This person was a movement. This person was a mass and all of these things they start calling them

00:05:00--> 00:05:26

By these beautiful names, and the angel gives an entry and as it is going up through the heavens, the angels in that heaven go with it to the next heaven. And the same thing happens Who is this? This is so and so calling them by their Beautiful Names and the angel start accompanying this soul as it makes its transcendence to Allah subhanho wa Taala and then they reached the final Heaven, they reached the final heaven above which is the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah azza wa jal himself

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

and then the call from Allah subhanho wa Taala comes

00:05:32--> 00:06:12

and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, registered this slaves book, take this slaves record and put it in, in the Union, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says the record of those who are our righteousness is placed in Le Yoon, Allah says take this slave of mines record and place it in Inle Yun take the slave of mines record and place it in in the Yun and then take him back to the earth. Because the earth I created him from he must return to it. So they put him back down to the earth, then his soul is taken back to his body, his soul is taken back and when I say his, his his or her, then their soul is taken back to their body. And when it is reunited with their body, they put it in the ground

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

where it was buried, and then two angels will come monka and Nikita the interrogators of the akhirah. They will come and they will sit that soul up. And when that soul is set up the first thing it wants to do, it wants to pray. It looks at the horizon and says it's time for me to pray. Because this is the yearning of the soul. This is the yearning of the meaning is they want to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and, and Angel say you there'll be plenty of time for that. But we have questions for you. And you must answer these questions. They say. They asked him, man Rob book. And so we'll reply, Robbie, Allah, my Lord was Allah. They'll say, well, Medina Look, what was your religion?

00:06:53--> 00:07:31

They'll say my religion was Islam, they will say, well my number yoke, who is your prophet? And the angel? I mean, in the soul respond, my Prophet was Muhammad Sallallahu and he was sending and they will ask him, how did you come to know of these things? They will ask him, how do you know these things? How did you answer these questions correctly, and they will respond. I read the book of Allah, I read the Quran, I read the Kitab of Allah, I read Kalam Allah, and I believe that and I declare it to be true. And then a voice from above the heavens from above the Throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala was one sided, but I mean, my slave, my slave has spoken the truth, my slave is

00:07:31--> 00:07:32

spoken the truth.

00:07:33--> 00:08:12

So made sure that his carpets are spread out from Jana in his grave, make his gardens, beautiful for him, open the grave expense for him. Bring in fragrances and perfumes for Jenna. So a door that is from Johanna will be opened, and that person will be able to feel the fire will be able to feel the fire of hell coming in, and it will be responded to him. The angels will tell him or her that you see this door. This is what could have been your eternal abode had you disbelieved and disobeyed Allah. And then that door will be shut, permanently sealed never to be opened again.

00:08:13--> 00:08:50

And then a door to Jenna will be opened. And the fragrances of Jenna will come in the smells of gin, the perfume of gin will come pouring into their grave and furnishings will be brought in. And chairs and, and brocades and silk and carpets and the grave will open for them. And it will be said to them. This is your final abode because of your belief, because of your belief. Subhan Allah and it will be said to him rejoice in the delights for you because this is the day that you were promised by Allah subhanho wa Taala ad. This is the day that you are promised, as Allah says in Surah forsale that those who say the Lord is Allah through Mr. Karma, that the angels of death will descend to

00:08:50--> 00:09:31

them say lotta lotta careful, well attacks No, we're AB Shirou Bill jannetty letting you conform to our I don't, but have glad tidings of Jannah which was promised to you, which is promised to you. And then an angel, a beautiful figure, a beautiful figure, not an angel, excuse me a beautiful figure, gorgeous, or come and sit down next to them will come and sit down next to them. And they will look at that person and say Who are you? You are so beautiful. So I've never seen something or someone so beautiful in my entire life, who are you? And that person will respond to I am your good deeds. I am your good deeds. And Allah has sent me to keep you company until the day that you meet

00:09:31--> 00:09:57

him because you kept your promises. And that soul will continue to cry out every single day until the day of judgment that so well cry out. Yara Yara akima sir Akina Sir, my Lord, my lord established our established our right now I want the day of judgment to come now because I want my promises. I want what was promised to me. I want it now.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

This is the state of those who believe

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

May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to reach this good ending. May Allah subhana wa Taala allow us to reach our death with our Lord pleased with us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to have our bodies on the day we die the wrapped in shrouds from the palace of paradise on hi May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow our graves to become expanse, expansive and large and and filled with brocades from Jana filled with carpets from Paradise filled with a sense of Jana because if you have made it to that day, if you have reached that point, then as Allah subhanho wa Taala says you are mostly Hoon, you are the people have success, you are the people of achievement, and your days will be no more

00:10:42--> 00:11:04

hard, no more tears for you. No more hardship for you. No more pain for you. No more difficulty for you. No more depression for you. No more anxiety for you. No more grief for you. No more suffering for you, none of it for you anymore. And you'll meet Allah subhanho wa Taala within pleased with you and enter into His palaces of Jannah May Allah allow us to have this ending I mean, Europe, we need it, we all need it.

00:11:06--> 00:11:07

But on the flip side of that,

00:11:10--> 00:11:57

on the flip side of that, for those who disbelief for those who turn away from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And for those who turn away from the purpose of their creation, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, when the Angel of Death comes to those who disbelief there are angels who descend with dark faces, there are angels who descend in they have black faces, and they look frightening and they stretch out as far as the eyes can see. And the angel of death comes and sits on his head and they are carrying with them rough cloth, a very rough cloth is made out of hair. And the angel of death comes and says, oh, beef sold, oh, fowl soul, come out to the anger and wrath of

00:11:57--> 00:12:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that soul when it hears that it is coming out to the anger and wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala when the veil is lifted, and they see the realities of this world, and they see the reality of Africa, and they see that everything that they were told about Allah was true and their creation was true. The soul will start running around in the body. The soul will start running around trying to find an escape route. It does not want to come out it does not meet want to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala it does not want this punishment so it starts running around. And then the angel takes a skewer, a skewer and it digs in and rips the soul out like thorny branches stuck into

00:12:36--> 00:13:18

a ball of wet wool. it rips the soul out and they snatched the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the death of those who disbelieve the death of those who disbelieve is so painful that the the the pain of it will still be visible on their faces the day when they're Allah subhanho wa Taala resurrects them, that the pain of the death of those who this believe will be so severe that it will still be visible on their faces on the day when they meet Allah subhanho wa Taala and they are resurrected. When that soul is snatched out. They take it out and it gets shredded up and it gets divided up the soul is pulled the pieces as is pulled out. And nobody wants to touch it, the angels

00:13:18--> 00:13:58

back away from it, because it smells, it stinks, it's foul, none of them want to touch it. So the Angel of Death takes it and wraps it in that foul shroud that is made out of rough hair. And then they tried to ascend to the heavens and return this soul to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when this soul reaches the first heavens, when their soul reaches the first Heaven, it is asked Who is this foul smelling so who is this foul, stinking soul, and they will say it is so and so and so and so calling him by the worst of names, calling him by the worst of names which has ever been mentioned. And they bring him to the lowest heaven and they say and they asked for it to be open and it is

00:13:58--> 00:14:38

refused. It is refused the gate is locked, it is refused. The gate is locked and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam recited the gates of heaven or manabi open for them, nor the end of the garden until the camel over until the camel passes through the eye of a needle so the gate is locked for them. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala calls from above the seven heavens when they are barred from entering into the first heaven. Allah calls from the seven heavens and says take the record of this one and place it in syngene place it is in syngene as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, place it as sin gene and then throw that soul back to the ground in which it was created. And so they take the

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

soul and they throw it and they throw it down and it read it re re emerges with his body in the grave. And then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam recited whoever associates anything with Allah, it is as though they have fallen from the heavens and a bird has snatched them away or the wind has swept them into a headlong faraway place resigning from the Quran.

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

And then when the soul is returned to the body, those angels come monka and Nikita the interrogators of the ACA and they're not nice. They're not easy. This is the interrogation of the hereafter. They snatch it up. They snatch this soul up and they say, Man, the rum book and the the soul replies Allah, I don't know, I don't know. Then a voice calls from the heavens and say, my slave has lied. He has lied. So spread out carpets of the fire for him and open a gate of the fire for him. And then they open up a door in his grave that is a door that leads directly to jahannam. And the fires of hell pour in, the heat pours in, and then it makes his narrow his grave shrinks and squishes him or

00:15:42--> 00:16:06

her in squeezing them in this hot burning box in this hot burning flame, and his ribs are pressed in, or her ribs are pressed in and they squeeze together. And the garments of john of jahannam are brought in the fires pour in the pits of cocoon, pour in everything that is promised to the people of jahannam, in the hereafter starts to pour into that person's grave.

00:16:07--> 00:16:17

And then an ugly figure, a gruesome, hideous figure comes in and sits next to them and is wearing horrible clothing, a foul smell.

00:16:18--> 00:16:29

And the person responds to that figure and says, Who are you I have never seen something so hideous, so foul smelling so ugly in my life, who are you?

00:16:31--> 00:17:12

In response says I am your bad deeds. I am your evil deeds. I am your disbelief. I am your sins that could never be forgiven because you didn't believe and I have common sit here and keeping you company until the day you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala in his anger and his wrath, and that person every day, every day, that person will be crying out, my Lord, my Lord, never let the hour come. Never let the hour of judgment be established. Keep it far away from me. Because I never want to meet you. I never want to meet my fate. If only I had believed as Allah. Allah, Allah says in the Quran, if only I had believed, if only I wouldn't have listened to my friends. If only I wouldn't

00:17:12--> 00:17:41

have listened to myself. If only I wouldn't have been deceived, then I would not have met this ending. So in that graveyard, you have the people of Jana who are crying out Yara Yara appi Messiah aptamer Sir, my Lord, my lord established our because they know the promises of Allah are true. And then you have those who are prepared for Hellfire who are crying out, my Lord, my Lord, never let the hour be established, never let the hour come to me because I know what is coming for me. Subhan Allah

00:17:43--> 00:18:22

Subhana Allah, brothers and sisters, death is real. That is real. Allah Allah Allah tells us in the Quran kulu neffs. In the eighth little note, every soul is going to taste death. And that death is going to come one of two ways. Either you're going to be one of those people whom the Angel of Death meets and says, Oh, good soul come out. And that soul will pour out so gently like water, pouring from a cup to the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his favors, and you'll be one of those people saying, My Lord, a famous established hour because I want my reward. Or you will be one of those people whom the angel of death will meet and say, oh, could be so Oh, fowl, dirty, stinking

00:18:22--> 00:18:40

soul come out to the anger of a lion His wrath, and that soul will be snatched out torn to pieces wrapped in a shroud from jahannam, a woolen cloth made out of those harshest hairs, and will be put into a pit of fire in this world. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is a good ending and protect us from a bad ending. May Allah protect us from the fires of hellenist punishment.

00:18:42--> 00:18:45

Because right now, brothers and sisters, as we wrap this up,

00:18:47--> 00:19:22

right now, everyone's grave, every single grave that you pass by, in this life is either a piece of Jenna, or is a piece of jahannam it is either a piece of heaven, or does a piece of hell. And our death will meet us when we're not ready. Our death will find us when we're unaware, our death will find us when we're not prepared. We have to prepare for that day. Now. We have to make sure that we're ready for that day. Because it could come at any moment. Brothers and sisters death is a fact. That is the one thing I cannot promise any of you anything in life. I can't promise that you'll ever be successful. I can't promise you'll ever be healed. I can't promise you anything except the fact

00:19:22--> 00:19:56

that you will die and you will either die a good die a good death, or you will die a death of have horrible circumstances. And I asked Allah subhana wa tada to protect this. And this is another reason why we do our brothers and sisters. This is another reason why we go out trying to share the message of Islam because we care about people. We want people to have a good ending. You have to care about your neighbors, you have to care about your co workers. You have to care about your mates and your friends and people that don't believe because you don't want them to see this bad ending. You don't want them to see this bad ending and you need to tell them that I am telling you about the

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

deen of Allah. I am telling you about Islam because I don't want you to meet this man. In

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

Than I know is coming. I know it's coming. This is a matter of yaqeen. For us, this is a matter of sincerity for us. This is a matter of certainty for us is that we know death is real. And that death is going to come when you're not ready. And if you're not prepared, if you haven't made yourself right with Allah subhanho wa Taala, it's not going to be a good day. It's not going to be a good day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, If I, if I were not afraid that you would never Bury Your Dead again, if I didn't know that you have to Bury Your Dead, I would make dua to Allah to allow you to hear the horrors of the grave, I would make dua to allow you to hear the

00:20:37--> 00:21:11

horrors of the grave. But I've heard them the Prophet Salah Salem and heard the horrors of the grave. And he said, if it were not the fact that I know you have to bury your own dead, I would ask Allah to allow you to hear those horrors. the horrors of the grave are real brothers and sisters, the terrors or nightmares like you've never seen you've never imagined. So what can we do, we can prepare ourselves, we can try to make ourselves right with Allah subhanho wa Taala. We got to make sure first that we believe and that we stay on belief, and that we stay on belief, and that we stay on belief. Let nothing ever shake you brothers and sisters, let nothing ever break you brothers and

00:21:11--> 00:21:46

sisters, let another nothing ever waver you away from the belief of Allah subhanho wa Taala along with her he'd let nothing let nothing. Let nothing ever cause any doubt to come in your heart or mind about the reality of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his existence and the fact that he is one. The fact that he has no equals the fact that he has no partners. The fact that he is robbed the fact that he is the reason for every existence of everything in the known universe. Never let anyone cast a shadow of a doubt in your heart about your belief in the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and that he is the best of mankind, that he was the best of guidance that he was the best of examples

00:21:46--> 00:22:10

and to follow his way as the best way. Never let anyone take that from your heart brothers and sisters because that is the key to making it. That is the key to making it. All of us are going to die with some sin. All of us going to commit some mistakes. All of us are going to do the wrong thing. All of us are going to mess it up sometimes. But that belief that belief is what's going to make or break you because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam our dear beloved messenger alayhi salatu wa sallam, he said whoever dies with

00:22:11--> 00:22:46

faith, even the weight of a mustard seed, whoever dies with faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala enter heed the weight of a mustard seed which is the smallest of seeds will enter into paradise will enter into paradise. So net never let anyone shake that faith. Never let anyone shake your ultimate belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala and know that you won't have your deaths will be either one of those two endings May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us May Allah grant is good I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah blesses barakallahu li comm Jimmy in western Puerto Rico Rahmatullahi
