My dear brothers and sisters.
On the Day of Judgment
everyone will have to cross
everyone will have to cross
over the hellfire.
is assilex the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said
in a hadith in Sahih Muslim from a beside in a hoodie rhodiola
ziraat a syrup just thrown
at them adapt Amina Shah
the path or the sirop
the bridge Surat is the bridge of jahannam na will be thinner
than a strand of hair
had to mean a safe and is sharper.
Then the blade of a sword
Allah subhanho wa Taala
bring it or put it over jahannam
in order to arrive at in order to enter Paradise will have to cross
and the disbelievers
who are not able who will not be able to cross it will fall into the Hellfire
and so this bridge
crossing this bridge
is not easy.
And it doesn't depend upon your acrobatic skills
because you work in a circus does not mean you're going to pass and get over this bridge.
How do you how do we ourselves cross this bridge which is sharper than the blade of a sword and thinner than a strand of hair.
This will be the
topic of this goodbye inshallah.
have to cross it
without any exceptions. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Wait a min come illawarra do How
can Allah be cattlemen maccabiah. And there's not
anyone amongst you except that he will have to cross it. Indeed this has been, by alert decreed,
decreed by your Lord. And so we have to cross this bridge.
And you have to understand that every one of us here right now
by reflecting and thinking about how we are, we will know how we will cross this bridge.
Right now at this moment,
we can figure out, and we can find out, if we are in front of that bridge, how are we going to cross it,
we can figure out
how we're going to cross it right here. And we can we will know also, if we're in front of there in front of that bridge, are we going to be those who will be able to cross it easily, or with great difficulties
over this bridge.
There are many.
There are difficulties, of course, in crossing this bridge. But it's not because of your acrobatic skills, it will be determined by determined by the deeds that you do in this life.
It will be determined by certain facets of your deeds in this life. Because there will be some on that day,
who will cross the bridge in the flesh. There'll be so quick, they will be over in no time.
And there will be some
who will cross this bridge running.
And there will be some who will be slower than that. And there'll be others who will be crawling.
And there will be some who will not make it.
And there will also be
hooks that will come from jahannam that will pull people into it.
They'll also be hooked. So who are we going? How are we?
Which person? Which type of people? Are we going to be on that day? Are we going to be the fast ones who cross it in the flesh? Or will we will or will we be the ones that are struggling? You have to understand it will also be dark.
But there'll be some people will have lights, some will have lights that will surround them
the size of a mountain, some will have like the size of a person standing. And others will have the size of a light, the flicker just like the size of a thumb, just like a candle light and it flickers on and off. And that's the light you're going to use to try to cross it.
So how is this light also determined? And how is your quickness also determined? It's all determined by our deeds in this life, when Allah subhanho wa Taala orders us to do something
we quick in responding to his orders.
If we are quick and responding to his orders, then we will also be quick on that day.
So think about yourself right now. When we hear the orders of the profits of the levada Listen, when we hear the orders of Allah
and when we hear the prohibitions of Allah and His Messenger, are we quick to stay away from that from them?
Or do we hesitate and do we delay?
That will determine how quickly we go.
And that's why the believers the true believers will cross very quickly. Why because the true believers are quick in responding to the orders of Allah and His Messenger
Allah Subhana Allah says yeah, you Hello Veena Amethyst ajibola language Rasul Allah who believe gives you a response Allah and His Messenger
Yeah, Valentina. Amnesty ajibola Rasul Allah, either academic or eco. When they call you to that which gives you life in this life and then here after life, that's forever. And so if we are quick, then we will also follow it quickly. And we're quick also, when we do we do commit mistakes, when we make mistakes. We click to read to repent to Allah, or do we delay until tomorrow, next week, until after hij after marriage and so forth.
That's why Allah subhana wa says, we're sad to Allah monferrato Mira become with Jonathan Alda somato and quickly
go quickly and compete with each other quickly go forward quickly in the end,
To the repentance of your Lord to asking forgiveness for your Lord. So, the quickness will also determine how quickly you get to Jenna to paradise, your quickness and in, in responding or in repenting to Allah subhanho wa Taala also. And thus, when something happens, we have to be quick
in obeying and in disobeying. We have to make that part of our nature. Like the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
one of the live Notah was coming to the masjid. He only heard one word from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and that was add some sit down everybody. Immediately he sat down outside the masjid, because it was natural. His natural instinct was that this was an order. And so he was quick and he didn't take another step forward.
And that's why the prophet SAW them when he heard about this. Afterwards, he said that Niccolo hemsson, Allah, Allah, May Allah increase you in the obedience of Allah and His messenger. So that is why when we ask Allah Subhana, Allah when we pray every single day, 17 times a day, at least,
minimum, we read it in a Serato study, Guide us to the straight path.
Guide us and keep us on the straight path. When you say Idina, us are often mistaken, it means guide us and keep us on the straight path.
Keep us firm on the straight path. And when you ask me a lot to keep your firm on the straight path. If your firm on the straight path in this life, you will also be firm in the setup also, under their judgment, when you're crossing over jahannam. And that's why we have to ask Allah to be firm and be consistent. And that's one of the one of the dilemmas that the Prophet Salam used to always make all the time
as the companions of narrators from NSR Malik and Chateau de la,
they have narrated to us that they do either the prophets of Allah hasn't made the most, when she was asked, What do I did he make the most, it was yamo kaliba, galoob, al bialetti yamaoka, Lee liberal colo sub it's called the alpha attic, or change of the heart, make my heart firm in your path. And that's why we have to be firm. And we have to be straight, we have to stay on the straight path so that on the Day of Judgment, we will stay on the straight path, we will stay straight and firm until we reach our agenda. Do not go left and right. Because if you go left and right, and there will be people who will try to pull you left and right and pull you off the straight path.
Just like in over the bridge, there will be hooks that will try to pull you off. So if you get hooked by these people in this life, you will get hooked also in the hereafter.
So when people are calling you to the left to the right this way in that way away from the straight path, you stay away from it, stay away from them and stay on and stay firm on the straight path. What do we mean by firm mean trying to stay as firm as possible without following these different roads that lead to jahannam that will may eventually make you fall into Johanna.
And that's why a companion came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said O Messenger of Allah, tell me something in Islam that I can ask no other. The nobody can tell me about
it, he's gonna look at this question.
Nobody else can tell them. So this is something that's going to be very important. So listen to what he has to say. What did the Prophet said a lot, licensing very short, concise, to the point, but very beneficial.
He said people are meant to be learning from mistakes are meant to be law say I believe in Allah, then be firm, be righteous and be upright on the straight path for most of them and be firm.
Even if it's only a little bit, be consistent, because the deeds that are more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala deeds that were consistent
at one Maha were in the best deeds, that which is consistent, even if it's just a small amount. And so
we have to be quick in responding to the orders of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we have to
also quick in staying away and obeying Allah Subhana Allah that when he prohibits us from doing things and so when we are
when we are living, anytime in times of hardship, or anytime at ease, be firm and be consistent in the worship of Allah subhana wa tada and you'll be firm and consistent also in the hereafter. And that's why the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam sets out to have a life or haha
Daughter of either life of raha no Allah in times of ease, and the love will know you in times of hardship. And so it's the quickness, how we respond in the afternoon.
Stand up the lights that are lost I gives you also when you're crossing this bridge, on the day of judgment, we will need light because there will be total darkness. But where will you get that light?
The light will come from many sources. Amongst those sources are the prayers. When you pray. And when you click into in responding when you're praying on time, when it's time to pray, immediately you pray.
And when it's time to pray, you come to the masjid early before them as the next day run. And that's why the faces of those people who come early
will be like the face will be bright like the sun
before the oven is made, and those who come with the asanas made, though with their faces will be like the faces of moon, the moon, and those who come afterwards. Afterwards, who delay then they will have the flicker just like the stars,
the stars and the planets that you see.
And so it will be according to that. And so the prayer that we have is will be light for us as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said a salata no mas sobre Leah,
a solid. Prayer is no prayer is light.
And was solid.
and patience is also light. So some of these things that will give you light of the day judgment, or prayer and patience. But what's the difference between North and low? Or Leah?
What's the difference? One is cool. And the other one is hot.
The light of the sun. You don't call it north. You don't say you don't call it north. You say no assurance because though a is accompanied by heat.
But you say no to comma, the light of the moon because it's not accompanied by heat. That's how you read the Quran. Allah subhana wa describe Allah will make a sham Silvia will come around. And he makes he gets the karma, the moon
the the light that comes from his north. Why? Because prayer puts you at ease. Prayer puts a Muslim a believer at ease. And that's what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say to be let at Villa put us at ease put us at peace. When you pray it's peacefulness. And this is a peaceful light. But when it comes to patience, or suburbia, patience is light also. But you know patience is accompanied by heat. When you're in order for you to be patient, you have to persevere and hold back that heat that's inside and it's burning. And you want it to release you want to release it, but you hold back, but that light is accompanied by heat. A Salatu was suburbia. Prayer is north. And then
that this is another way you that you will have lights and the day judgment. Also, when you're crossing the slots, there will be some people who are just have a flick. Others will have the size of mountains around them.
And imagine crossing anything. Anything even if it's just
a small just a something that's very easy to cross without light. It's difficult to do it's total darkness.
But imagine if you just have a flicker how are you going to move? There'll be some people who will be crawling and they will make it so you yourselves are we ourselves? Everyone here? Think of ourselves right now?
Do some of
this some accountability.
When it comes to the orders of Allah? How quick are we in responding?
How quick are we in responding? When we know something is haram? How quick are we to stay away from it?
When we know that this is the Sunnah, how quick are we to apply it?
When we know that this is what the Prophet Solomon did, how quick are we to apply it?
And then you can you can figure out also
and when it's time to pray, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. How quick are you to pray?
how quickly you to drop everything and say Allahu Akbar, and then pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala how quick Are you in doing them? And so also when you cross the Syrah
there'll be some help
you have some help. What's that help?
And it's there are two things will come to the side.
On your left and on your right. The prophets of Allah said to these things will come Amana to
You know, being trustworthy.
And Allah him, Rahim Allah mana, being trustworthy,
you don't see people.
When people entrust you with something, you don't cheat them. And when you entrusted with children, you put them in the proper place and give them proper education.
All the trusts that you have been given and trustworthy will be trustworthiness will be the first thing that will be lost. And it will be one of the first signs of the Day of Judgment. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Ilya Tila mana fantasy Risa
when the trust is lost,
then wait for the Day of Judgment.
Then wait for that day, when the companions asked, When is the day judgment? He said, Look a favor.
They said how can it be lost? How will it be lost? the profits of the law have been said either we'll see them in a variety of Li fantabulous.
When people are appointed, who are not qualified, or not the appropriate people to be appointed for certain responsibilities, and they're not taking care of that trust, then wait for the Day of Judgment.
Then when you look at the Muslim world, nowadays,
we can bring the world to a standstill, Allah has given us so much resources, that just one word will make the whole market crash from just some of the countries some of the leaders this whole pot of power that's in the Muslims and
but they have not they have been in the Muslim as well.
They've given given so many Allah has given them so much strength. They've given us so much strength.
But they're in the wrong hands, the hands of people who are not trustworthy. We're not taking care of that trust. And so it's like it's lost from the top and even in our communities. You can't trust anybody anymore.
And we've lost that trustworthiness and also
we have lost the bonds of Raheem. the bonds of relations we have we're cutting relations. The children no longer obey their parents. They have become the masters of their parents.
They are no longer asking things from their parents, but they're ordering their parents when they want something.
And they're ordering their parents and that's what the prophet sallallahu Sallam said, when one of the signs of the day judgment, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
mentioned that amongst the signs of the Day of Judgment is when a female slave
gives birth to her master. And one of the one of the interpretations of some of the scholars like I remember no way Rahim Allah said, one of the possible meanings is that there'll be such great disobedience that a woman will give birth to her master, what is the master do the master orders?
So you have children? Coming, Mom, you're gonna buy me the Xbox, or else?
You buy it for me? They're asking, Can you buy me the Xbox? Please? No, you buy it for me. Everyone's got it. You have to buy it for me. There's no option for you now.
When they want something, there's no more obedience. And so brothers, please come up, move up forward so we can have space for those who are coming later. And so you have
people the greatest rahem the closest to your mother's to our mothers.
And so, then our fathers and then the PR relatives, so enjoying relations, we no longer enjoying relations. And
by enjoying relations, this will help you enter Paradise. Because the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said last year the whole janitor.
in Hades inside Bukhari, the Prophet Solomon said, a person who cuts relations will not enter Paradise, because he will not be able to cross
he will not be able to cross those who don't enjoy in relations. And that's why the first thing that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when he arrived in Medina, he said after Salam
rasulillah and enjoying relations for some noble lady when NASA Liam that whole agenda to the Salah.
Read the salaams
and enjoin, you know feed the poor
and enjoying relations. And so the Prophet saddam also said, and then pray when people are sleeping and you enter Paradise in peace with peace
and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said to Allah moment and savvy, cometa, Salah br hammock, know your real relatives know your relations, so that you can so you can enjoy these relations. And as I mentioned, the one that deserves the righteous your righteousness and piety the most. First of all, is your mother, your mother and your mother, we all know that Hadith.
But no. And make sure that you please her do all that you can to please her. But nowadays,
you know the Hadith in which is the three men who are in a cave, when they were stuck in the cave, the first person who made the law, he said,
Oh Allah, I had parents who are very old. And they came back very late one day, seeking pasture for my flock. And so they had gone to sleep. So I provided milk for them. I mean, I got I bought, I went, I melt for them, I got them up for them. And they had already gone to sleep. And he said, I stayed next to them, I was afraid to wake them up.
He was I was afraid to wake them up and they slept into the morning, he was afraid to wake them up. But you know, children nowadays,
they keep their mothers awake, because they don't know where their children are.
The mothers can't sleep because they don't know where their daughters are.
The mothers can't sleep because they don't know where their children, their sons are.
That's what that's what we have become. And so join relations and teach our children to enjoy and relations also,
with family members, with your aunts and uncles, because if you don't do this, then you will fall. You don't have a man, and you don't have you don't have enjoyed relations, and you will not be able to cross the slots. So I want everyone to think right now.
The man and the Raheem that we have, and also the prayers and how quick you are in responding. And then put yourself in front of slots when you're praying. And you're standing up every day. How are you going to cross it?
As everyone when we know how we are in comparison to the to the orders of Allah and His messenger? how fast we can go? Are you going to be those people who are just crawling and maybe you might be one of those who might be picked up by the hooks? Because people come on it takes only one person to call you and you're gone already.
You're after you're off the track or you're off the path already. So everyone think about yourself your prayers and how you are in response to Allah and His messenger. Then you will see how fast you are, how quickly or how much light you have. When you're crossing that path. And every single time you're say you pray in a certain Muslim you say hey, Dina said often Mr. Payne, you're asking Allah to keep you firm in this path. And in the hereafter also

Am I bad?
Yeah, you Hello Xena. Man otaku la Waltons or NASA mapa de la vida. What por la in LA LA hubiera MB Mata Malone.
As I mentioned,
our quickness in responding to Allah subhanho wa Taala will also determine how Allah responds to us. And it was also it will also determine how quickly Allah subhana wa Taala will allow us to enter Paradise in our trust are putting our putting of our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala also will help us sign a judgment
under their judgment.
When we are standing in front of Allah, another day judgment when ready to cross. The conditions are very harsh, but it's determined.
You know everything
thing that you do, you need practice, everything that you do, you need skills for them, and the skills for survival
and the dangers of the hereafter acquired during these days.
So those people who used to go and nighttime,
in the dark, for fudger prayer,
and those who live at nighttime after every sharp prayer, especially with the lady
in the darkness, they will be the ones who have light on the in the hereafter.
And those who are quick to respond, will also have a lot of hands on with or will also help them. So every one of us
before you go every time you pray,
some of the some of they say they used to say
and they used to advise, and one on one, the one of the ways to achieve concentration is to say, when I stand up for prayer, I imagine the siddartha right in front of me, john M is to the left and to the right.
And you know how sharp it is and how thin it is, in the Angel of Death is behind him.
The Angel of Death is coming, because you don't know when he's, when he's coming.
He might be coming just when you leave.
And so think of yourself how you are
the zeros in front of you, and death is coming.
And so every time you pray, you will make this you know, put it in your heart that this might be your final prayer. And it'll help you to concentrate and will help you to be more focused and do the things that will remind you of the hereafter remind you of death also. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also advised us to visit the sick, to remind us also of the blessings that we have, and to visit the grave or any other country in the hate to come and 02440 her finances Akira malattia he said Indeed, I used to forbid you from visiting the graves, but visit them now visit them for indeed it reminds you of the hereafter reminds you of death and remind you the hereafter. And so when
you're praying also think of these things. And when you ask Allah subhana wa Taala for firmness in a certain stocking. Think of the salon that you're about to cross also. And ask Allah to be firm in this life. So that you also be firm and firm in the hereafter.
