Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah, he was a happy woman, whether I'm about to sit down at como Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh to him.

00:00:15--> 00:00:19

Very shortly and briefly this morning, I want to share something with you in Shama Diana,

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

it's about a topic revolve, being around one of my favorite I had to put on

00:00:30--> 00:01:12

each and every single day, multiple times a day. We asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep us on the street, in the inner city or autonomous stopping, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep us on the straight path, what is the straight path? What is the what is what is it that we are asking for when we ask Allah Dena serrato stopping to keep us on the straight path. the straight path is the path of Islam. And there's only two sources of this path. The two sources of this path you will find in the book of Allah Subhana who would to Allah, the or and the second source of this path is the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu was salam, where he himself was upon what his companions were upon who

00:01:12--> 00:01:24

followed him and those who followed them in righteousness. May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with all of them. So this is the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala what you find in his book and the Sunnah of His Messenger, les Salatu was Salam. That's it. Now,

00:01:26--> 00:01:34

the thing about this path, the thing about the straight path, the thing about the path of Islam, when it relates to your everyday life is

00:01:36--> 00:02:25

the final destination of this path is genuine. This is what we understand, we understand that the final destination of this router must have been the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala is Jenna. Now that path is or that destination is realized, in, in the next life in the theater. In this life in this life, there is no end to that path. This is a concept that I see a lot of people strive and struggle for, without really understanding that there is no end to this path in this life. This path is a continuous road, it's a continuous straight path. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is commanding us into the day we die, to ask to just stay on this path to remain on this path. There is no point

00:02:25--> 00:02:30

there is no place that you will reach in this life where you can stop and say

00:02:31--> 00:03:16

Alhamdulillah I'm here, I've made it to my destination. And now I'm just gonna wait on the angels of death. This is not a reality, this path is continuous, you're going to have bumps and obstacles along this road you're gonna have some times where you struggle to stay on this path, you're gonna have times where you slip off this path and come back to it. The point is to remain on this path. And this is what is known as is dipalma is the karma is to remain steadfast to remain on this path. When a man came to the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. And he asked him a messenger of Allah, give me some advice, give me some advice, that will be sufficient for me, so that I will never have to

00:03:16--> 00:03:27

ask anything else to anyone else. And this advice will take me to Jana is what the man wanted. And the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. He said to the men

00:03:29--> 00:03:50

say that you believe in Allah. Allah meant to be learning through Mr. Kim, and then remain steadfast, steadfast. Say that you believe in Allah and remain steadfast. The man asked, okay, give me something else. He said Allah meant to be like a thermos. dokkan say that you believe in Allah and remain steadfast. He's asked for a third time. Give me something else. That's not

00:03:51--> 00:04:39

his long term advice. He wanted a huge advice on the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and for the third time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said koloman to be life on the step and say that you believe in Allah and remain steadfast upon that. This is what is understood by Dena Serato. Mr. Pim, keep us on the straight path. Grant us is the karma. grant us the ability to remain on the straight path until we meet the angel of death on that path. That is the goal in this life. The goal in this life, dear brothers and sisters, the goal of this life is to remain on that path until you meet the angel of death while you are on that path. That is the goal is to stay on that path. This is why as

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

a Muslim we struggle and we strive to stay on this path. And if we fall off of it, if we make mistakes. If we turn the wrong way, we strive to quickly get back on this path and remain on this path because we never ever, ever, ever, ever know when the Angel of Death is going to come to us.

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

We never know when Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna has legislated that death will overtake us. So our goal is to remain on that path until we read the angel of death. That is the end of your path. The end of your path is your death. And you want that death to come while you are on sirata monster pin. This is the goal. This is the goal is just to keep moving forward to keep progressing to keep going. Yes, you're going to make mistakes. Yes, you're going to

00:05:31--> 00:06:20

commit sins. Yes, you're going to fall off sometimes think that that happens. And I'm not saying it happens to all of us, but it happens. And the goal is to get back onto the path and to let the Angel of Death Find us on this path. That is our goal. And if the Angel of Death find you on this path, then you will find that the end of your destination is Jen. This brings me to the verse where Allah Subhana Allah tells us in the Quran, which is one of my favorite, one of my all time favorite verses of the Quran because of the beautiful, beautiful message where Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in Silverthorne facilite chapter 41, verse 30, i a 30, where Allah Subhana Allah says in alladhina

00:06:20--> 00:07:09

Paulo, in alladhina, por la buena, Allah who must mean that those who save the Lord is Allah, and those who must upon and then they were umaine upon that they have his diploma upon a man to be late to muster up and this is exactly what the prophet Lisa was said, I'm told the men, those who say the Lord is Allah, and they remain on that they have his diploma and stay on that path, that danza Lu, I lay him on the mela eager that Allah will send to them angels, Allah will send to them angels upon their death when they died, when they are meeting the angel of death. If they are on that road, if they are on Sarah Thomas, the theme they have held fast to is dipalma throughout their life, Allah

00:07:09--> 00:07:59

subhanho wa Taala Allah says that the nezu Allah human mela, that He will send to the angels. And this is the beautiful part of this verse. because let me tell you, the day you die, will be the most trying day of your life. The day of your death will be the most frightening experience that the human being will face in this life. There is no man made catastrophe, there is no natural catastrophe or phenomenon that is as frightening, and is as scary as the day that you meet the angel of death. But for those for those who have remained upon the Serato monster pin, and they have met the angel of death, Allah has blessed him because no one Let me tell you this. No One No One remains

00:07:59--> 00:08:48

on the straight path and meets the angel of death on the straight path. Except that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah has willed it for them and chosen it for them and has helped them this is why we say at least 17 times a day Dena Surat almost a pain. So Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna says those who have remained steadfast remained on this path. And the angel of death comes to them Allah will send angels to them upon this death upon their most frightening experience upon their most hard day. Before the Day of Judgment, the hardest day in their life, Allah will send them angels that will say to them, First Alert to her. Surely, do not be afraid, have no fear, and that the hurtful will

00:08:48--> 00:08:56

attack and don't even be sad, don't even be worried. Don't even be stressed. But

00:08:57--> 00:09:48

I'm sure you have Shirou but have glad tidings Allah to her who will advise you know what am Shirou but have glad tidings Bill jannetty. Lottie condemned to I don't have glad tidings of Jenna, to I don't that was promised to him. Subhan Allah, this is the reward of his karma. The reward of is the karma is that not only will you live a peaceful and fulfilling and satisfying life upon the straight path, and your life will be full of Amen, your life will be full of pleasure, your life will be full of the amazing things that Allah subhanho wa Taala has promised to those who believe in Him and who follow him. But on your hardest day, on your hardest day, you will receive the message, do not be

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

afraid, do not have worry or grief or sadness on this day, but I'm sure but rejoice and have glad tidings. bilgin, Atilla tea come to I don't

00:10:00--> 00:10:14

Jenna that was promised to you by Allah subhanho wa ala. I mean hamdulillah for the deen of Allah Islam. It is a very simple and beautiful religion that Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed us with and favored us with.

00:10:15--> 00:10:54

And it is about staying on that path, you are never going to reach the finality of that path until you meet the until you meet that Angel of Death. There is no end point in this life for that path. You keep going forward, and you keep going forward. And you keep going forward. When you meet obstacles, you hit them head on, and you keep going forward. When you fall in you stumble upon this path, you pick yourself up, you dust yourself off, and you keep moving forward. If you have fallen off of this path, if something has caused your email to become weak, if sins have overwhelmed you, if you have fallen off of this path, and you have strayed from this path, and you are still alive

00:10:54--> 00:11:37

enough to hear this message, if you are still alive in Allah subhanho wa Taala has not will the Angel of Death find you all for this path, then all you need to do is pick yourself back up, find yourself back onto that path and keep moving forward. This is the goal of the Muslim. This is the life of the Muslim a continual struggle, a continual effort, a continual you had to keep going forward on this path. This is what we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for dinner Serato knows the theme, allow us and guide us as we walk down the street path guide us as we walk down the straight path and help us to continue on this path. So if we can meet the Angel of Death like that, then you have

00:11:37--> 00:12:19

succeeded. If the day of your death, if the day of your death, you're met with these angels who will tell you a lot to her for what it is, you know what I'm sure all Belgian metal lady can tune to Ireland, then you are supremely successful. And you can rest assured that your resting places gender because that will be your promise. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he gives us the COVID the ability, the strength, to continue on the straight path to continue upon the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala the path of tawheed the path of the Quran, the path of the son of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam following in the footsteps of his companions and the rightest predecessors who

00:12:19--> 00:12:37

came before us. We have to keep going forward for this insha Allah to Allah, we cannot give up. Once you give up, then you have lost but as long as you are still struggling on it, as long as you're still striving upon it, as long as you are still fighting for it. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna has favored you, has favored you.

00:12:39--> 00:13:06

So don't be despondent about your mistakes, your mis grievances your sins, worry about them, they shouldn't worry you, they should pain you they should hurt your conscience, they should keep you up at night. Absolutely. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most forgiving, but then Allah tells us very, very, very, very many times in the Quran, that his punishment is severe. So Allah subhanho wa Taala does punish those who are worthy of his punishment, but

00:13:08--> 00:13:53

the desire of Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna is to forgive is to forgive is to have mercy is to be forbearing is to be kind is to be gentle. And the only thing that prevents the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala from entering into your life, the only thing that prevents the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala from reaching you is yourself yourself no one else you cannot blame chevonne you cannot blame your friends. You cannot you cannot blame anyone else. Except but yourself because Allah's mercy is for anyone who wants it. Anyone who desires it, anyone who seeks it, anyone who goes after it. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, Dina said Alton must have been our Lord keep

00:13:53--> 00:14:12

us and guide us among the straight path. As we walk this path of life. We want that path of life to be on the straight path, the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala based upon tawheed based upon the Quran, based upon the son of his prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam and his companions. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you all,

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

I'm ready to get back into full action. It actually has been a very beneficial thing for me at hamdulillah the surgery, the downtime, the break, it was much needed.

00:14:29--> 00:14:37
