Now hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen, who allegedly Jelena muslimeen was selected cinema sullo cream, while Annie was happy as Marina said, La ilaha illallah wa, the luxury kilo by General Muhammad, Abdul also was armonico.

00:00:18--> 00:00:52

The Hamdulillah, las panatela, guides, whoever he wills to his straight path. And it's not for us really to guide anybody. But it is for us to deliver a message. And I try to remind myself above that every day because so many times people will ask me the question, how can we get this person to Islam? How can I get that person to be a Muslim? How can we give Shahada to somebody that is an atheist or somebody that you know, Christian, or Jew, or you know,

00:00:53--> 00:00:56

but the fact is that Islam is not

00:00:58--> 00:01:17

really a religion belongs to human beings, it's a way of life, prescribed by the one who created all of us in the first place. So how in the world? Could we really come up with something that is any different than what allows order? We can't? Otherwise we make a new religion anyway.

00:01:18--> 00:01:22

Islam, as you will know, is really based on the

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

verb Isla. Meaning that

00:01:27--> 00:01:45

it's a relationship between us and our Creator. So how would it be that you or I would get between somebody else and Almighty Allah anyway, so we're just delivering a message. And then it's a law who guides whoever wills? He says,

00:01:47--> 00:01:50

He says, In the Quran,

00:01:51--> 00:02:00

a rhetorical question man de la de asheboro Indra, who is the Edney who is there that could come between the law

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

and his creation.

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

Except that he wills

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

he has to give them the permission to do it.

00:02:10--> 00:02:29

And, of course, that would not mean that it's a true intersection, anyway, intercession being one who would be like, somebody would have power beside a law to be able to go up and say, Hey, let this guy off. The hook is a friend of mine. Oh, okay. I have to do that. No, it doesn't work like that.

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

Even when we're assuming law, he's still alone in his salon.

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

The Day of Judgment is going to be

00:02:39--> 00:02:50

put in a high position, such a position to actually go in front of a lot of panel data. How is he gonna go in front of a law like this?

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

No, no, no.

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

He's gonna go and put his head on the ground. Yes. insensitive. And then he will

00:03:03--> 00:03:18

supplicate that St. George is going to make drive. According to however, Allah inspires him. This is what he said. This is what he said himself, meaning that he doesn't even know what he's going to be saying, but alone will inspire him with the words.

00:03:19--> 00:03:25

So you can see right away with his head on the ground and Allah basically putting words in his mouth.

00:03:27--> 00:03:36

To do what to take his oma, those who were followers of Muhammad SAW some out of the firewall. Well, there's some good news here.

00:03:38--> 00:03:42

In fact, there's a whole lot of good news, when you compare Islam to anything else.

00:03:44--> 00:03:52

I spent most of my life as a Christian. So obviously, I do know a little bit about it. And Christianity is teaching us that

00:03:54--> 00:04:04

the people that are the believers, according to at least certain groups of Christians, they're not going to die. They're going to be like pulled up and saved.

00:04:05--> 00:04:11

Others will tell you that there's a eternal life that they get that everybody else doesn't get.

00:04:13--> 00:04:18

Then we'll talk about being in paradise. Everybody else goes to hell.

00:04:19--> 00:04:27

But the good news in Islam is that everybody gets this eternal life. It's not limited.

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

Everybody gets eternal life.

00:04:31--> 00:04:38

Good or bad, buddy, everybody. It's eternal life. The problem is where that's the problem.

00:04:41--> 00:04:46

There's some more good news. Bad news that comes up which one you want first?

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

How many say like, give me the bad news first.

00:04:52--> 00:04:53

Oh, yeah, you hear bad news?

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

Bad news is some people

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

Muslims are going to go to hell.

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

It's bad news.

00:05:06--> 00:05:07

The good news,

00:05:08--> 00:05:09

they won't have to stay there.

00:05:11--> 00:05:44

That's the good news. Because anybody who even had a speck, you know, actually use the term in grain like small grain smaller than a grain of rice, something dining, this much belief that there really is only one guy alone. They have this belief La ilaha illAllah that known as deserving in your worship, non is deserving any devotion and none is deserving any of this kind of

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

attention other than the one true God, they have this

00:05:52--> 00:05:55

then they will get out of the Hellfire eventually.

00:05:57--> 00:06:03

still kind of like bad news good news of injury. How bad is how far you ever thought about that?

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

Some people might say, Well, you know,

00:06:08--> 00:06:12

I did some bad things. But hey, I'll just go to hell for a little while.

00:06:14--> 00:06:16

As though what, that's not a bad deal.

00:06:17--> 00:06:29

Or they might say that, well, there are different levels in the hill, some worse than others. And I'll just go to the Buddhist place, like that goodest place.

00:06:31--> 00:06:33

Is there a good place to help her?

00:06:37--> 00:06:46

There's levels though. There's one level it's so bad. Even though rocks that are burning there are afraid of it

00:06:47--> 00:06:57

is really horrible. The worst? Is that even the fire itself is afraid. That's horrible.

00:06:58--> 00:07:02

That's reserved for the worst of the worst of the worst.

00:07:04--> 00:07:11

Probably Mohammed said that ice alone had an uncle. I would tell him, you know about his uncle. Yeah.

00:07:12--> 00:07:20

Because a good guy. By our standards by human beings standards, we say is a good guy. He was nice. It was fine.

00:07:21--> 00:07:32

He did good deeds. He supported the Muslims. He helped them when nobody else would help them. In fact, the only thing about the guy was he just wouldn't say the Shahada

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

was only a really bad thing about it.

00:07:37--> 00:08:02

He just refused to say, there is only one God worthy of my worst. He said, You know what, I'm coming from a culture background of people that worship these gods. And how could that be known? He's on his deathbed. How would it look, you know, to everybody if I abandoned the religion of my forefathers for this.

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

People might you know think, Oh, it's like a coward or something. So now just stay with what I got any done.

00:08:12--> 00:08:14

died without kalama.

00:08:17--> 00:08:32

And saw results. asalaam was making dough out for him. Great for him. He said, I'll keep doing that. Unless the Lord shows me something. Other than that, and of course, that's when the verse in the Quran comes in, it makes it clear that

00:08:34--> 00:08:39

you can do that somebody died without the kanima you don't pray for him?

00:08:42--> 00:08:44

Because Allah knows, and we don't.

00:08:45--> 00:08:48

Alarm he knows and we don't know.

00:08:51--> 00:08:54

So then the prophet SAW some told this.

00:08:56--> 00:09:03

His uncle, I will tell him would be in the best part of the hellfire. The best part? What's the best part of Hellfire

00:09:05--> 00:09:10

standing on rocks that are so hot, your brains are boiling.

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

That's the best part.

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

No wonder they call it hell.

00:09:23--> 00:09:26

In what am I the one who said Well, well, maybe they're short time I'm talking about you know,

00:09:28--> 00:09:30

now 50 years, 100 years, who cares?

00:09:32--> 00:09:33


00:09:36--> 00:09:50

except that the prophet SAW Islam, Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, told us about two people that will come under their judgment. One of them he had everything in this life. Anything he asked for. He got it.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

The other one, he didn't get the things that he asked for. Now the one who had everything when the angel of death came to him to take his soul

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

He wants one more thing of feast set in front of him and he got that.

00:10:06--> 00:10:12

Then angel took, he saw the other one. He didn't even get to drink a glass of water.

00:10:14--> 00:10:20

Dolly went away water and he didn't get that and the angel to Kissel, now one or everything in this life,

00:10:21--> 00:10:34

they put him into an alleged slab, they put him into the Hellfire, like you might put a pin into something and pull it out. How quick could you do that? Oh, maybe you get a pillow or something. He didn't take a pin.

00:10:36--> 00:10:37

That's what a nanosecond.

00:10:41--> 00:10:53

And the one who had nothing in this life didn't get the things he wanted. Put him in a paradise somewhere you put a pin and pull it out now the one that had everything after coming out of the fire,

00:10:54--> 00:11:07

that just the second the asking in your whole life where he had everything. He said, Did you ever see anything good. He said, I've never ever seen anything good.

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

The other one that had all the difficulties in this life, put him into the paradise just for a second and pull him out. And ask him now in your whole life to see anything bad. He said in my whole life, I never saw anything bad.

00:11:24--> 00:11:31

So the experience of either one totally removes whatever you were concerned about here.

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

What are you worried about here?

00:11:34--> 00:11:39

Because I guarantee you, as soon as you get to the next level, you're not going to remember it either way.

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

If you wind up

00:11:42--> 00:11:44

in a bad place,

00:11:45--> 00:11:58

you don't remember anything good about this place. So all the stuff that you're chasing, after all the things you're trying to build up here all of the wealth, the power, the society the status of

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

Okay, that's all gonna be gone.

00:12:04--> 00:12:24

gunzip horrible. The other one, the one who is sacrificing in this life, the one who is suffering in this life, you're still gonna forget about all that. As soon as you get to paradise, of course is going to be everything that you wanted, and more, you will not be able to fathom

00:12:26--> 00:12:30

in this life, either one of those two places.

00:12:31--> 00:12:36

There's just no way now the Prophet peace be upon him taught us something about this tool. He says there's

00:12:38--> 00:12:42

use a word like hey, job covering, there's a covering

00:12:44--> 00:12:46

over the Hellfire

00:12:48--> 00:13:09

covering over the Hellfire, which is your vein desires, knifes, your desires. But you see the Hellfire as being good, because of your desires. But there is a covering over the paradise makes it unattractive to you. Because of what is the things you didn't like in this world.

00:13:10--> 00:13:21

So just a lot of the things that we look at every day, if you flip them and look at it from the other side. That's really the reality of the next life.

00:13:22--> 00:13:26

So receiving things in this life is likely.

00:13:28--> 00:13:37

If you want to keep everything in balance is likely to put you in a very bad way. Giving things in this life will do what put you in a better condition.

00:13:38--> 00:13:44

No, this is not. This is not only lie. In other words, it's just like

00:13:45--> 00:13:47

the teaching of Christianity.

00:13:48--> 00:13:58

simple statement in Christianity, you hear it all the time, especially at Christmas time when somebody wants you to give a gift says it's better to give than to receive.

00:13:59--> 00:14:02

Exactly, this is exactly how it goes.

00:14:03--> 00:14:05

If you understand that,

00:14:06--> 00:14:18

then you can understand a little bit about what Islam is teaching us when it says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Peace be planning toddlers are doing usage no movement

00:14:19--> 00:14:21

or agenda to death.

00:14:22--> 00:14:43

Is anybody speak like a daughter being may speak Arabic? 123456789 Okay, well, more ladies than men are speaking Arabic language. Right? Well, you know what I said? For those of you who don't know Arabic, I'll go slow. Dunya means the material world that we live in

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

dunya the material world that we live in

00:14:47--> 00:14:58

siege no movement. CJ in Arabic means a prison or a jail. Movement is a believer. So this material life is a prison for a believer.

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

like gender, and that means the paradise for the Catherine disbeliever.

00:15:08--> 00:15:19

Is that true? The Providence soul alignment some he said it, Prophet Muhammad peace and let's be a bunny. porn is this? Do we believe that? Well, let's look at it permanently

00:15:20--> 00:15:25

if you go to prison, what's the first thing that you notice?

00:15:26--> 00:15:27

Besides the bars?

00:15:28--> 00:15:37

What is the first thing you notice? You can't be able to people you want to be with? Right? You can't be with the one you love the most right

00:15:38--> 00:15:38


00:15:39--> 00:15:47

So is that the same for us? as Muslims? We love a lot more than anything.

00:15:48--> 00:15:51

But we can't do a lot because we're here. And law is not here.

00:15:54--> 00:15:57

We love Prophet Mohammed sunrice a lot more than anything.

00:15:58--> 00:15:59

But he's not here.

00:16:00--> 00:16:02

He's in the next live waiting.

00:16:03--> 00:16:37

So that's what we want. Now we're the ones who love we're not with the righteous people. We're not with the ones who died. Sacrifice before all the prophets all these great wonderful people. They're not with us. So this whole life isn't prison. That's one about food in a prison. What happens when you want food? Do you like get this they give you a little sheet at night? You can fill it out. You have T bone mashed potatoes and gravy. Iced Tea. fresh peas corn cob.

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

popcorn? Yeah, like some popcorn. And

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

they all have cherries jubilee. For dessert.

00:16:48--> 00:16:50

Turn it in. And what will you get? Ah,

00:16:52--> 00:16:53

mush, baby.

00:16:56--> 00:16:57

You're lucky to get oatmeal.

00:16:59--> 00:17:06

And it won't be hot anyway. Um, all right. Anybody ever been in Britain? I work in prisons. I know. But have you ever been around?

00:17:07--> 00:17:08


00:17:09--> 00:17:13

here equal to one? Is this true for the Muslims in this world?

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

Yes. A lot of things we can eat.

00:17:17--> 00:17:21

Legally in Islam. You're not supposed to eat pork, right?

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

And somebody is telling me we're not supposed to be eaten lions and tigers and bears. Oh, my.

00:17:30--> 00:17:34

I didn't really want to eat a lion anyway. Did you? Could you imagine

00:17:40--> 00:17:41

a hamburger out of a lion?

00:17:47--> 00:17:59

I guess it'd be no different than draft burger. That doesn't look good, either. But coming back to the subject, we can't drink what we want either. There's a lot of drinking things that people are doing all the time.

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

We can do that.

00:18:07--> 00:18:10

What about clothes? In prison?

00:18:12--> 00:18:26

Can you pick up the clothes you'd like? Taylor comes by and measures you up for a new heart chapter Mark suit. Oh, don't forget the best. Or they just tell you two things an upper and a lower Go for it.

00:18:28--> 00:18:32

Say the patterns do the loose. Okay, but the bottom?

00:18:35--> 00:18:36

Who cares?

00:18:39--> 00:18:43

in color on that prisons never ever cool cover men.

00:18:44--> 00:18:48

So in our life, we also have a dress code. Yeah.

00:18:49--> 00:19:00

Muslims have a dress code. And it doesn't always go along with whatever is the coolest fashion. There. We're watching the guys on TV right now. So

00:19:01--> 00:19:19

again, there's a good comparison. But by now we've discovered that hey, that prison here is not as bad as being a Muslim. It's not so bad after all isn't but now let's look at it from the other point of view that paradise for the disbeliever.

00:19:21--> 00:19:37

Now promises on use the word Kaffir Kaffir comes from Kufa. cafaro is that is a verb meaning to cover up something there's literally is covering like alarm x. Copper, you know how many we know that a lot does Catholic.

00:19:39--> 00:20:00

does all the time. We hope he does. When he covers up our sins kabara he covers up your sins, when you go to him and report on that he keeps it covered up for you. So that's covering it up. But the idea in Islam of cover actually means

00:20:00--> 00:20:23

disbelief because the one who's doing this has been exposed in some way or another to truth, and they're covering it up. The truth never goes away what they endeavor to cover, and of course, they'll never be successful at it. But now what about this life being a paradise for one who is covering the truth?

00:20:25--> 00:20:27

Many times we see people

00:20:28--> 00:20:50

who are bad people, we know they're bad, they do really bad things. But somehow or another, they wind up with a lot of good stuff in this life. They do. It's kind of amazing. certain individuals and their groups who will go out and literally destroy other people.

00:20:52--> 00:20:54

And take away from them their property,

00:20:56--> 00:21:02

crush their families. And then all of a sudden, they got big houses, nice cars.

00:21:04--> 00:21:08

And you're thinking, wow, why are they getting all of this?

00:21:09--> 00:21:36

If you use the human standard, to compare, you'd have to make the conclusion that being bad is better than being good, because the good guys according to this always finish last. Very seldom do you see somebody who is humble and kind and sweet, generous charity giving is going to be the leader, a leader of any country, is that true?

00:21:39--> 00:21:48

And that's not that I would pick on any particular leader of any country especially because I need to go to all these countries.

00:21:51--> 00:22:13

But at the same time, we have to ask ourselves, how is it in this world that these aggressive individuals who will compromise immediately to get what they want? How is it they get all of this stuff? And then the ones who are sacrificing the ones who are really kind people, many times they wind up with nothing?

00:22:15--> 00:22:25

And the good health is even going to these bad guys and diseases come under the good guys. And atheists will look at that and say see that proves there is no guide

00:22:27--> 00:22:33

he does that's how it that's his evidence right there. And this of course, is the ultimate cover up in it.

00:22:37--> 00:22:41

So how does that work? And we think about it

00:22:42--> 00:22:46

when somebody is getting everything they want in this life,

00:22:47--> 00:22:55

they better think twice because it could mean you've got nothing waiting for you in the next life. And that's pretty scary.

00:22:57--> 00:23:10

When you said I don't have to worry about it. I'm a Muslim. I got news for you this same thing Christian says I don't worry about it. I'm a Christian. Same thing juices that same thing Hindu says in fact that's what everybody says as long as what they're getting what they want

00:23:11--> 00:23:18

is not really until we start losing and we start thinking hey, wait a minute. Maybe Let me think about my religion now.

00:23:20--> 00:23:26

now's a good time to go to God why well I'm having problems before being with school so but now it's time to think

00:23:30--> 00:23:35

and what about the one no Now watch this there's there's one more in this category I want to think about

00:23:36--> 00:23:52

the one who is quote unquote the Catherine one who covers the truth one who doesn't believe in god yeah. doesn't believe or believes in all kinds of Gods makes up Gods as he goes whatever. Good luck Gods you know, the kind you carry in your pocket. You need something you whip it out. Hey, got my lucky guy.

00:23:55--> 00:24:13

You heard about that right guys wear these bracelets and things like it's gonna cure them or give them something and they got lucky brace it lucky ring lucky. horseshoe lucky horseshoe hurt by that where they don't by the way some societies over the centuries believe that if you put a horseshoe over the door, it was good luck. I

00:24:15--> 00:24:19

always wonder what would happen if you slammed the door and it fell down. We get a very good luck with it.

00:24:21--> 00:24:38

And what about the rabbit's foot? Have you ever heard about good luck rabbit's foot people used to carry those when I was a kid. They had key chains that had this piece of a real rabbit's foot hanging on it. And then we let you go to start the car. You look at that dangling foot and I would think how was that lucky for the rabbit?

00:24:40--> 00:24:45

You know, here goes Easter Bunny. He's on crutches going. Hey, wasn't lucky for me.

00:24:47--> 00:24:51

But what about the one who doesn't believe

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

the bad guy? Okay. He's really bad. He's a thief. He's a rotten liar. He's alcoholic. He's his mommy does everything bad. I don't know.

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Give me any more ideas than that.

00:25:06--> 00:25:20

But he also is poor. He's poor. He has nothing in this life. And he also gets diseases. He also has cancer or tuberculosis, something like that, you know, and he's laying there in a hospital bed.

00:25:23--> 00:25:30

And he's complaining and you tell him that he russelsheim salaam Cava during usage no moment. What can

00:25:31--> 00:25:54

you tell him? Prophet Mohammed said that this material world is the holy paradise for you guys, but it's the prison for the Muslims, believers. And he's gonna say, Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Hey, what about me look at the condition and see how bad off I am. And I don't believe what you believe. So that disproved your theory.

00:25:57--> 00:25:58

You forgot.

00:25:59--> 00:26:01

I just told you when we started the program tonight,

00:26:02--> 00:26:20

that one second, and the Hellfire will wipe out any good you ever saw in this life. So by contrast, in comparison, that guy in Hellfire for one second will look back on the worst condition in this life and go Hey, man, that was heaven.

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

That was paradise. That was

00:26:29--> 00:26:29


00:26:33--> 00:26:54

For us living in this life, it's sometimes difficult to keep it in perspective to remember that this really isn't our ultimate resting place. We're not going to stay here. You're not going to keep continuing here. It seems like it for you woke up yesterday you woke up today. Good chance you wake up tomorrow, but allow them

00:26:55--> 00:27:07

while you sleep waking up. So going on. We do whatever we do. Hmm, I got away with it another day. Let's do it again. Another day opens up for you. Hey, here we go again.

00:27:10--> 00:27:25

The first year of your life was 365 days of use the sun calendar 384. Using the calendar really matter, you don't remember, I don't remember first year nobody remembers. Second year you stagger around fall over the coffee table, stuff like that. Everybody says how cute you are.

00:27:28--> 00:27:32

There you learn how to talk. fourth year they wish they'd never taught you.

00:27:34--> 00:27:35

You know it goes.

00:27:36--> 00:27:47

fifth year you go into school, and then the world really starts opening up to you. You're like, Wow, look at all the stuff going on. Oh man school. That's an amazing thing. I hate it.

00:27:49--> 00:28:04

Sometimes, and sixth grade, all the way from the first to the sixth grade. We used to call elementary school, the beginning of primary school, and you meet friends, you start learning about other things. But all along the way. You never ever for one second think about

00:28:05--> 00:28:07

one day, I may wake up dead.

00:28:09--> 00:28:12

In other words, not wake up at all. This isn't in your mind.

00:28:13--> 00:28:31

You go to the middle school, you go into the high school. And somewhere along there now somebody dies, your aunt dies, your grandmother dies. Some teacher you know died, somebody died. Somebody you knew their name or you know something about them, they die. Now you're like, Ha

00:28:32--> 00:28:36

through another seal anymore. No, they're gone. Huh?

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

Well, there's still lots of other people.

00:28:41--> 00:28:57

Or maybe somebody really close to you dies. And it makes you think, but still you move on. And this continues on to your life. Now as you get older, you start thinking a little bit more about it because more and more people you know, die

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

and then get around 80 or 90 and now almost everybody you used to know is dead.

00:29:07--> 00:29:15

Then maybe you start thinking, hey, that could be me next. But in reality, it could be any one of us at any time in that room.

00:29:16--> 00:29:20

Is there any guarantee you're gonna go to bed tonight woke up tomorrow morning?

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

Not really.

00:29:25--> 00:29:28

Is there any guarantee that you will eventually die?

00:29:34--> 00:29:52

Think about that one. We don't really think of that one, do we? That's the only most obvious fact of life is death and we never think about it almost never. But it's the most obvious fact. As soon as you're born, you're going closer and closer to the day you die.

00:29:54--> 00:29:58

That's all more reason why you shouldn't celebrate a birthday. It's just get closer to die.

00:30:02--> 00:30:07

What are you celebrating Happy birthday to you. You're another year closer to being dead.

00:30:09--> 00:30:10


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

scary in

00:30:15--> 00:30:37

any minute, any one of us, and I've seen it happen. I remember one time talking about the subject about death and dying. And the next morning in the newspapers I was flying out. It was mentioned the story there was in Trinidad that a lady had come to the speech that night.

00:30:38--> 00:30:41

She had asked her son to go with her was in the paper.

00:30:42--> 00:30:45

He said, Now I want to stay with my friends.

00:30:47--> 00:30:57

She got a phone call at the venue at the place. Turn get home, something's happening your son. He's like 20 years old. Okay. She came home. It was laying on the kitchen floor dead.

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


00:31:03--> 00:31:05

No, aren't you glad you came to my speech tonight.

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

But it makes you think

00:31:21--> 00:31:33

the one thing that we know is going to happen regardless, you don't have to be a Muslim to figure it out. You don't have to be a Christian, and atheist, anybody has got to come

00:31:34--> 00:31:39

to grips the conclusion, you're gonna die.

00:31:41--> 00:31:42

I'm gonna die.

00:31:45--> 00:31:51

Now in the Bible, I found the passage was a real popular one. We used to use it all the time.

00:31:53--> 00:32:06

But we didn't really think about it. When we said it. We really didn't. Never tried to analyze it. Because a lot of stuff when you're Christian, you just say what everybody else says and go along with it is fun. soda. But

00:32:07--> 00:32:12

it says john 316 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son

00:32:13--> 00:32:18

that whosoever believes in Him, will not die.

00:32:20--> 00:32:24

But they're gonna live forever. everlasting life, is what it says.

00:32:28--> 00:32:32

In the church that I went to at that time, the preacher used to tell us

00:32:34--> 00:32:47

cuz you would ask him, but you mean really don't die? He said, yeah. If you really, really believed when the rapture comes, you're going to be picked up and carried up into heaven, and you won't have to go through the experience of dying.

00:32:49--> 00:32:50

That sounds good.

00:32:51--> 00:32:57

That sounds really good. I mean, and there's people believe it or not a lot. But there are so

00:33:01--> 00:33:11

many, but read the same book, the same exact book, it tells him that Jesus died. So evidently, he

00:33:14--> 00:33:15

never caught that one.

00:33:17--> 00:33:24

I also didn't get the fact that for the last 2000 years, everybody did breach the die. So there must not have been either.

00:33:29--> 00:33:42

Actually, I'm sure it didn't mean literally what it said. Obviously not. Jesus wouldn't have said something like that anyway. But what did the law say? Clearly in the Quran, kulu Knutsen die.

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

Every soul will taste death.

00:33:49--> 00:33:51

So let's talk about that.

00:33:54--> 00:34:23

Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. He told us about what's going to happen in the very end days of this earth. He talked about the earthquakes. He talked about the signs that would come even talked about what's going to happen in Mecca, about the destruction of the Kaaba. He told us some of the big upheavals in the earth itself, mountains coming down, like carded wool that's in the Koran. Many of the things that are going to take place in the very last days are very scary.

00:34:24--> 00:34:27

But then eventually there won't be anybody left.

00:34:28--> 00:34:31

And after the last human being dies,

00:34:32--> 00:34:34

when there's nobody left at all,

00:34:36--> 00:34:48

there's still angels. And that's when the law is going to tell the angel of death to go to the angels and to begin to take their role their souls from them.

00:34:50--> 00:34:54

The Angel of Death will begin removing the souls of the angels

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

until the only one left is the Archangel

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

The Holy Spirit.

00:35:02--> 00:35:11

Roca goose that's the title of jabril. Angel Gabriel is the Holy Spirit. What it says in the Quran, we know that

00:35:12--> 00:35:26

which by the way, was another big revelation for yours truly, because I always wondered about this Holy Ghost Holy Spirit thing. And when I found that in Islam, oh, it made a lot of sense not part of a trinity is just the title of the angel Gabriel.

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

But even then Allah will send the angel of death, the medical mode to him, and say, Take his soul.

00:35:36--> 00:35:48

Now, nobody can resist the angel of death when he comes. That's it. In fact, the only one ever in history to stand up to the Angel of Death really was Ooh, moose la Salaam. Yeah.

00:35:50--> 00:36:01

he smacked in the mirror, most solemn Moses is the one who hit the Egyptian and killed him dead with one pop, remember that.

00:36:02--> 00:36:06

He didn't mean it killing it just want to put him down a little bit.

00:36:09--> 00:36:13

But when after the age of the dead came during blood, boom,

00:36:14--> 00:36:15

he knocked it out.

00:36:17--> 00:36:17


00:36:18--> 00:36:23

an angel that's going back to Moses.

00:36:27--> 00:36:31

But a lot of this is done for you guys, we have to go along with it.

00:36:32--> 00:36:42

Now, when it comes to Gabriel jabril isonem, the Angel of Death is taking this great and amazing soul,

00:36:43--> 00:36:48

the Holy Spirit in itself, taking his soul, then there's nobody left.

00:36:50--> 00:36:55

Except Angel of Death. And law says take your own soul.

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

And he did.

00:37:05--> 00:37:10

And as he was removing his own soul, his last words,

00:37:11--> 00:37:16

if I would have known it was like this, I could have never taken the first one.

00:37:21--> 00:37:22

We want to think about death.

00:37:23--> 00:37:32

The Angel of Death says this, if I would have known it felt like this. I couldn't have taken the first one.

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

Now, nobody's left at all.

00:37:40--> 00:37:45

Now the Prophet is telling us what's been given to him in Revelation, he's telling us what's going to happen.

00:37:47--> 00:37:53

Not that he has any control over not that he's added or taken away by just telling us this is what's going to happen.

00:37:56--> 00:38:08

And then, after a period of time, as long as the law wills, it could be for us millions of years or two seconds, but it's up to a law. But as long as the law wills. And then he's going to say

00:38:10--> 00:38:18

now Where are those kings that they wanted to set up as partners with me in worship?

00:38:19--> 00:38:20

Where are they?

00:38:23--> 00:38:26

And there will be of course, no answer.

00:38:27--> 00:39:00

And then along will cause everything to come back. He'll bring it all back again, all of us. And that's what I said, this is good news. Everybody is going to be brought back. Everybody will be brought back every single soul shall be brought back in the body. And a lot of people are complaining about this. It's mentioned in Quran and even today, how will I be brought back in a body? How is that? How you mean after our bones turned the dust? You say we're gonna come back? Oh boy, where do you get that stuff?

00:39:03--> 00:39:05

But who created you in the first place?

00:39:07--> 00:39:19

When we started out, you and I all of us when we started out. We were what we call today in embryology an egg a zygote and little teeny

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


00:39:23--> 00:39:33

fertilized by sperm attaching inside the wallet or womb and starting out cleaning hanging and forming an alpha

00:39:35--> 00:39:40

and from that we came for yes or no. So how did that turn into bones

00:39:41--> 00:39:42

there's no bones in it.

00:39:44--> 00:39:52

There's nothing in it. You if you want to go ahead and put it under a microscope and take a look. That's not a little bit of human being. That's what people used to think.

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

That's what people used to think that there were little teeny tiny human beings discovered when I got bigger inside of the mother came out

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

There's what they got.

00:40:05--> 00:40:08

Now, embryology is a science

00:40:09--> 00:40:38

1400 years ago, excuse me, 400 years ago in the West, nobody had a clue. 1400 years ago, Allah clearly spelled it out from the time we are conceived inside of our mothers, their trimesters the development, the inshape, out of shape, all of the shapes, even talking about our hearing develops before our eyes, all of this is in the Quran as a sign as a proof to the human being. Who created you.

00:40:39--> 00:40:53

Who knows most about you? Who is the one that blew life into you? And who is the one that wrote for you your risk on your daily bread? Who is the one who provides even the oxygen you breathe? And you don't have the courtesy to say thank you.

00:40:55--> 00:40:57

That's the point, isn't it?

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

That's the point.

00:41:02--> 00:41:36

And allow will bring his own back. Everyone will be brought back. And we will have bodies and nobody will have any clothes on because that's that one part of the deal. Now Ayesha, the wife of the Prophet peace? she asked all, you know, because Muslim women on the gross, they're all very, very conservative, super conservative, very modest. And she's concerned. He said, don't worry about it. Because nobody is going to be looking at anybody else on that day. They're all going to be walking around saying Nazi Nazi Nazi Nazi

00:41:37--> 00:41:41

Arabic It means myself myself. What kind of drove

00:41:42--> 00:41:43

me today?

00:41:45--> 00:41:53

That's all the concern we're gonna have. Because we'll all realize clearly then what we should have been realizing right here. What we didn't plan for.

00:41:55--> 00:41:57

We didn't get ready for that.

00:41:59--> 00:42:19

Oh, yeah, we did. Well, I don't know what you have here in Australia. But back home. We got the Keogh plan and 405 and all is retirement benefits that we're working towards putting some pension aside planning all the time planning, you know, build it up. Okay, I'm ready to go. Not one thing, do we plan for the next slide? Nothing.

00:42:21--> 00:42:22


00:42:24--> 00:42:27

So there you stand on the day adjournment.

00:42:28--> 00:42:33

And the sun will be brought close, just so much over the heads of the people

00:42:34--> 00:42:38

that they will be standing in their own sweat to the neck.

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

And no relief from the sun. No relief from this heat. No shade, no.

00:42:50--> 00:42:59

Ill the low of a loss upon the shades of a loss upon without. And this is only going to be preserving people.

00:43:00--> 00:43:12

The ones planned ahead. The ones that really thought about it, and they didn't try to get stuff with this Dune yet. They wanted it for that after for the hereafter

00:43:15--> 00:43:22

because they realized what the prophet summarized someone said was true. I do your search no movement

00:43:23--> 00:43:25

or gelato cafe.

00:43:26--> 00:43:29

This material life is a prison to a believer.

00:43:30--> 00:43:34

But it's the only paradise for the disbeliever

00:43:37--> 00:43:46

come the law of hungry I mean who knows all the praise the one who made us Muslim.

00:43:47--> 00:43:53

I'll leave you with that thought it was great to be with all of you tonight. And I thank you so much

00:43:55--> 00:44:00

guided me before I met the angel the dead

00:44:01--> 00:44:06

and I proved for everybody on me that all I will guide them the same way

00:44:07--> 00:44:08

because that's the best thing that happened

00:44:10--> 00:44:13

is often my luck here was somebody come up to LA
