Aloha my eliminare may infer winner when fat and MV MT Olympian I was in Milan Bella Alameen Loma in the kirika we should click our house near a bird attic.

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

We've reached chapter 47 from Kitab recaulk the softness of the heart and soul he had Bukhari Rahim Allah

00:00:22--> 00:00:28

and the title of this chapter, verbal Qi saucy EO multi Yama

00:00:30--> 00:00:40

punishment, and chapter the title of the chapter of punishment and retribution on the Day of Judgment. The sauce is to be punished for something that you've done.

00:00:42--> 00:00:52

And Aloha Rahim Allah he's a he continues. And he names or lists some of the names of the Day of Judgment. So he says retribution.

00:00:54--> 00:01:01

On the Day of Judgment, we're here and the Day of Judgment is also or the resurrection yomo piano the Day of Resurrection.

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

We're here and also it is called El haka.

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

Because he says the NFP have Ferb. Well, how Alomar Why is it called Al Hakka? Because the recompense is in it, what you receive in return what you've done is in it, well how or more and the reality and truth of things happens on that day. And he says, I'll have to we'll have to go ahead both hacker and hacker are the same. And it's also called Acharya. Well, Allah, she was Saha will explain these names Insha Allah, what the verb will know, the halal Jannetty and an R, it's also called a Turabian. And that is because of a transactional

00:01:46--> 00:01:58

attribute that will happen, which is called the oven when somebody wins and somebody loses in a transaction. So that's called Levin and a day of judgment, it's called Yamamoto.

00:01:59--> 00:02:23

So let's explain the names of the day of judgment that elbow Hydra hammer Allah lists. But just before we do that, why does the name of judgment, the Day of Resurrection have multiple names? So we'll move to Yama, but also I'll help called the lagoon, Acharya, and many others, why does it have multiple names?

00:02:24--> 00:02:39

We say that if something or someone has multiple qualities that are strong enough, they rise from the level of a quality only to the level of earning

00:02:41--> 00:02:51

from just the quality that they possess, to the level of a name. So this person or that thing will have multiple names. So for instance,

00:02:52--> 00:03:06

all of us to a degree are generous. Sometimes we are generous, right? But when would you deserve the name, the generous in addition to your needs? So snared, let's say that your name is Ahmed.

00:03:08--> 00:03:18

But also, in addition to that, when you, for instance, are about to come who's coming the as you see the generous, like as a name? When do you deserve that as a name?

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

We when your generosity is strong enough, right? That it starts to identify you.

00:03:26--> 00:03:55

It's consistent. It happens all the time. It's beyond average, not just like my like my and your generosity, it really stands out that people start saying that who's coming? Oh, it's the generous, so that's another name. That's how people write, develop some nicknames because of the things that they do that rise to the level of a distinction. Right. So a day for instance, Friday is Friday.

00:03:56--> 00:04:44

But when would for instance, Friday for you acquire another name? If you graduate on that day, it becomes Friday and graduation day. Right? Or if that's your day of employment and employment day, right. But if it's an insignificant act on Friday, it doesn't rise to the level of a name. Right? Let's say let's say for instance, that you do your laundry on Friday. Yeah, you don't really can identify Friday as laundry day unless you really excited about that thing. So the Day of Judgment has so many important things that it does that distinguish it from all other days that it has multiple names. So you understand why this and this does this, and it does this and it does that.

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

And no other days like is like it. So that's why it takes all of these names. So also, why did Muhammad sallahu wa salam have multiple names? Because he has these incredible qualities, each one of them gives him a name. And why is it that Allah azza wa jal has

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

As names beyond count, because all of these qualities of Allah xojo are so distinct and unique and strong, that they become a names for Allah azza wa jal

00:05:12--> 00:05:27

so, so in addition to resurrection day and that is easy to understand these as well he al Hakka is called also al Hakka one of the sources of the Quran called El Hapa. Tamil haka Morocco, Morocco does not have Cohab is truth.

00:05:28--> 00:06:06

What is true is Hakka Buhari says Hakka, Hakka is the same thing. What does that mean? It means that because it brings that recompense, whether it's good or bad, you can see it and that is going to be true, is called hochkar. Also, because it brings the truth and eliminates falsehood, that day, brings everything that is true and eliminates all falsehoods. So it is a half cut. So you will see all the truth happening on that day. The Honorable are truly honorable on that day. And the one who are not, is nine a C and the honor on that day, opposite to the duniya

00:06:07--> 00:06:16

Subhan Allah when you know that, that hereafter is Al Hakka, right? This dunya is its opposite.

00:06:17--> 00:06:23

Which is what the delusion, the illusion, the liar,

00:06:24--> 00:06:42

the land of lies, all of these things would be appropriate. Because the akhira makes or gives you promises and it fulfills these promises. The dunya, on the other hand, makes beautiful promises that are very attractive, but does it fulfill them? No.

00:06:44--> 00:06:47

So let's say for instance, like a mirage in the desert,

00:06:48--> 00:06:54

and you're very thirsty. And you see there in the horizon, what's looks like water.

00:06:55--> 00:07:27

Now, what do you do when you see that and you have no experience of what a mirage setup is? What do you do? You say, finally, I found water. Finally, if I just reached that point, I'll be so happy, so satiated. So comfortable, I just need to walk further. So that's a promise that the sun is making, and it's reflecting to show you that it's water. So you walk and walk and walk and you reach the area that you think you've seen water, what do you find?

00:07:28--> 00:07:29


00:07:30--> 00:08:12

But it's still making you that promise. Because in the horizon, there is still a promise of water. So that feeling that you get from you, when you're seeing that lie, that optical illusion, or optical lie is real, that the feeling that you have is really you see, oh, I'm going to be happy. And I'm going to be satisfied. I will be so nice when I get this. That's the promise of the dunya. If you get a big house, you're going to be so happy. If you get this job, you're going to be so delighted. If you're going to get this woman if you're going to get this idea like you will be so happy when you get it. And it actually makes you feel good. When you hear that promise. Just like

00:08:12--> 00:08:43

when they announced a new iPhone, you can't wait for you to get that phone because you think once I grab it, I'll be so excited. But then when you grab it, few days pass or few weeks pass and this form becomes very old. So it's like that promise. So the promises of the dunya cannot be trusted. That's why it's called doubt on horror or the house of illusion or the Land of Illusion. Because what it shows you what it promises you is never true.

00:08:44--> 00:09:02

And Ethel is a helper you want the truth. You will see it with Allah as Odin is also called Acharya can is like the calamity that visits Cara is to knock Cara on the door is to knock but the Arabs then borrowed that for something that is

00:09:04--> 00:09:33

an affliction or calamity or disaster that comes upon a person so suddenly or overwhelmingly that it is a disaster not desired not wanted. But it just overwhelms. That's a Korea right and it overwhelms the body and it overwhelms the heart. Right. Similar to that is the harsh year the thing that overwhelms completely overwhelms a person or saw

00:09:34--> 00:09:38

the thing that is so loud that is deafening.

00:09:40--> 00:09:46

Right. So it is so strong, that it kind of everything else disappears.

00:09:47--> 00:10:00

And it is so loud that it definitely is the year that he's how strong your piano is. So whether it is the blowing the horn, or seeing the day of judgment or

00:10:00--> 00:10:31

or all of these things are incredibly loud. At the verb when we say it's a transactional term, when somebody sells something for cheap when they say, woven, he has lost. So at the Robin has a group of people winning and a group of people losing? Who wins. So in a transaction, if you sell something expensive for cheap, somebody wins in that transaction and other losers. So who are the losers?

00:10:33--> 00:11:07

The non believers who had sold their houses in Ghana, for their houses in hellfire, and who are the winners, the believers would sold their houses and hellfire for their houses in Jannah. So that is a duliban. Right? And if someone feels small and cheated when he buys something expensive, and it assumes something for for a lot of money, but it turns out to be cheap, and you feel terrible when that happens. You mean you've been scammed?

00:11:08--> 00:11:17

The greatest scam is for you to sell your life that Allah had given you, for the sake of this dunya that is the greatest scam

00:11:18--> 00:11:33

because your life could buy Jana, but you sell it for the sake of the dunya the vanishing and you ignore the eternal. So this is opener ally Jannetty had an NA, this is what it is.

00:11:34--> 00:11:54

So, a few Hadith in this chapter. The first is where an OB sub Allahu Allah was sitting down via code. He said a word OMA Jacobina Nursey be Dima, the first thing that is going to be settled among people on that day is bloodshed, meaning killing people.

00:11:55--> 00:12:11

That is people or stand in judgment for what they've done, but also for what they've done to other people. So the first thing that people will be asked about, between them and Allah azza wa jal is Salah.

00:12:13--> 00:12:38

The first thing that you'll be asked about, of the rights of Allah, as noted is what salah the first thing that you will be asked about when it comes to the rights of people is killing? Did you kill someone or not? Right? Now, why does this take priority when it comes to the rights of people because this is the greatest sin that you can commit when it comes to a human being,

00:12:39--> 00:12:43

meaning eliminate all of their existence and their life.

00:12:44--> 00:13:03

And that is why it is so serious, that Allah azza wa jal will judge that first. And it is said that on the Day of Judgment, everyone who got killed, will take his killer and bring them to Allah as though did and you see a lot. Ask him, why did he kill me?

00:13:04--> 00:13:33

Because you ended his life. So suppose for instance, you could steal somebody's money, but he still has his life. You could take somebody's house, but he still has his life. If you take his life, what does he have? That's it, he had lost everything. And if you have no right to take somebody's life, then Allah Zoa Jin has to ask you about it. But also you owe that person. And so that person is going to say Allah, why did he kill me? If there was a reason?

00:13:35--> 00:13:57

Then you had justification, Allah giving you that justification, let's say for instance, self defense, then you can argue and say, Your Allah, He attacked me, I killed him back in self defense. But if there is no justification, then you have to pay him. And we'll see what the how that happens, but you have to pay him. Now, a person may say,

00:13:58--> 00:14:44

Well, I'm safe from that I'm not gonna really kill anybody. Right. And, and Hamdulillah. Most people don't end up killing others as well. But you have also to keep in mind that you may find yourself maybe not you directly right now. But find yourself in circumstances where killing a person becomes justified in your eye or the society that you live in circumstances around you start justifying it. Or you begin to cheer the killing of other people, especially during times of fitna right times of fitna where people divide into groups, and they're suspicious of each other. And this group hates me and that and hatred escalates to the degree that you start actually contemplating the fact that I

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

could kill so and so. And if you could look at some Muslim countries, how Muslims could kill each other, you realize that a lot of people could fall into that category too. So don't think I'm protected and I do mean that you have to ask

00:15:00--> 00:15:34

Allah xojo for protection. So you can name this Muslim country, that Muslim country with some turmoil in it. And this Muslim is killing another, not only killing it, they're saying I'm justified in killing this person. And the other way around, no, I'm justified in killing that person. So Allah Zota is going to ask about this. So as it is not an easy task, right? Not an easy thing for you to say this, so and so is a cafe for Muslims, to sit to look at a Muslim and say this Muslim has now become a Kaffir.

00:15:35--> 00:15:47

Similarly, it's not an easy thing for you to go say, I'm justified in killing that person, unless you are 100% sure that that person deserves to die.

00:15:48--> 00:16:34

And there's no other way and senior scholars of Islam have spoken about it. And you are sure that when Allah is going to ask you about it, you will have an answer and a good answer. Or it's not up to me or juniors around us or even Junior Scholars to say this and that go kill so and so or go assassinate so, all of that should be avoided. So, if you commit a sin like that, you have to worry about what you will say to Allah has. Now we said that if you commit such a sin or any thing, wrongdoing towards your brother, you have to pay him right. You have to compensate the prophets. Allah similarly here talks about that compensation. So he says, that's the following Hadith mechanic

00:16:34--> 00:16:41

in the home of the lemma 23. He found yet the halal home in her. It says if you have wronged your brother

00:16:42--> 00:16:57

and you owe him something malema, you transgressed his rights and you owe him something familiar to Halal human hair, let him compensates him or ask him to free him from that burden, meaning make it halal,

00:16:58--> 00:17:40

right. Failure to handle alumina meaning he didn't if he held meaning free me from that burden of the wrong that I've done in the whole Lisa Thumma de Noronha ledger hum because there will be over there no dinar or dyrham mean probably a new Javi a human has an earthy for anemia Kula who has an add on okay them in sejati a pottery hat Ali is do it before it won't be taken for your brother's sake from your own good deeds. And if you had no deeds or the aggressor, had no deeds, you will be taken from his sins from the sin of the victim and put on the shoulders of the aggressor.

00:17:41--> 00:17:46

So the Prophet sallahu wa Salam is saying here that if you owe someone

00:17:48--> 00:18:03

on the Day of Judgment, where is what is the only available currency? There is no gold, there is no silver, there is no property, how would you appease satisfy that other person? What could you give them

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

there's nothing except Hassan.

00:18:08--> 00:18:12

Nothing. So you want that person to forgive you.

00:18:13--> 00:18:19

And on the Day of Judgment, every person is trying to hang on to his own life, his own salvation.

00:18:21--> 00:18:27

If there is a thread that will save you, you will hold on to that thread because it's Jana or jahannam.

00:18:28--> 00:18:39

Now suppose that you don't know where you're going to go. And now you discover that so and so had taken your money and so on. So back button you behind your back and so on. So

00:18:40--> 00:18:48

violated your rights in one way, and they owe you and here is your chance to get more Hessonite from them. What is the likely scenario?

00:18:50--> 00:19:21

Give me right Give me gimme, gimme right, as much as they can. I'm not going to let you off the hook. You're going to give me everything you owe me. Why? Because I need every single Hassanal because one could mean the difference between a day in Jahannam or a day in hell, I mean to handle them or in Jannah Will you let go of a Hassan? Absolutely not. Unless Allah intervenes. By the way, that's a different thing. unless ALLAH intervenes, and he says, Forgive him. And if you forgive him, I'll forgive both of you.

00:19:22--> 00:19:40

Then yes, but otherwise, if you're at risk, you will never do this. So go back to the beginning of the Hadith he said Salah Adi or seldom if you had wronged someone and now you owe him What are you supposed to do failure to Hello mean her, let him release you from that burden.

00:19:42--> 00:19:58

So it means and This Is Us loan fit the handload there's this is a principle that should be kept in mind. If you have wronged someone before you die before they die, you should go to them and say, yeah, here have tea. I did this and that. Please forgive me.

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

And maybe they won't forgive you until you pay it back, then you have to pay it back. You took some of their money. I stole this from you, I took what is not rightfully mine, you have to return it

00:20:14--> 00:20:18

and also ask them to forgive you so that you're even

00:20:19--> 00:20:22

that is what the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is asking you to do.

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


00:20:26--> 00:20:32

And if it is Ma as we said if it is a monetary injustice, you have to return it.

00:20:33--> 00:20:44

If you insulted him in public and he knew about it, if you did Reba you back bid that person and he knows about it you go to them and you say I said this and that about you. Forgive me

00:20:46--> 00:20:51

even if their condition is all not forgive you until you give me some money.

00:20:52--> 00:21:02

Right? Even if they say that, but you don't owe them money, but they say I will not give forgive you for the things you said about me until you pay me a CPM now.

00:21:03--> 00:21:20

Because easier, right and cheaper now, then later. So you say okay, Give me $20 Give me $100 I'll forgive you says here's 100. But now we're even he says yes, that is relief. He's Allah was not going to ask you about this because this person forgave you.

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

The exception will say that if there is riba backbiting, and that person doesn't know about it,

00:21:28--> 00:22:09

okay. He doesn't know about it. He did say things about him. It didn't reach him. If it reached him, you have to apologize and ask for forgiveness. But it did not reach him. But should you do? So they'll have some scholars say you go on apologize, you let them know. And some scholars say and that is probably the wisest, say, don't let him know. Because if you let him know, it'll be very hard for him to forgive you. Right? Like your heart, right? And his heart, maybe could be in harmony at this point. You don't have anything against him. He comes to you and say, Brother, please forgive me on that day. I said this and this and this bad thing about you? Are you gonna feel great. Once

00:22:09--> 00:22:56

you hear that, right? Absolutely not. Alright, will you actually forgive them? Now it's gonna you're gonna turn sour now? Why would he say these things? So they understand and they know that there is more damage when you're being dishonest. So what should you do? They say you make dua for that person, you praise him with all honesty, praise him in the same and with around the same people that you have condemned Him and give sadaqa on his behalf, you could do that as well. But at least do ask for that person. So that the bad that you've done is offset balanced by the good that you do for that person. Right. So when you do this, we hope that you know, you will be okay with Allah as Odin

00:22:56--> 00:23:02

and you'll be okay with that person. Because yes, you took something away from him, which is his reputation.

00:23:03--> 00:23:22

Right? The Prophet sallallahu sallam said, What is haram that you cannot touch not only somebody's money, but also someone's dignity and reputation that is sometimes more harmful when violated than money. Right? Because when you say something bad about someone, it sticks,

00:23:23--> 00:23:51

and it doesn't go. And people start reacting to him based on what you've said. So backbiting has that exception, but everything else you need at the helm. You need to go and ask for his forgiveness, so that they will let go of that sin, let go of the right and do whatever you can to compensate. And this also tells you that what it's easier not to commit this in the back in the first place.

00:23:52--> 00:24:23

So don't harm somebody else. Don't take their rights. Even if it's small thing. Don't back bite people. It's a lot easier just to refrain to stop from talking rather than do and say something bad and then try to go and ask for forgiveness. How will you get that? So it's a lot easier to just actually refrain from any injury in any violation. Because once you do it, it's a process it's even maybe an ordeal and on the Day of Judgment.

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

You could come as the prophets Allah Sydenham said in a hadith a person could come with hacer una like mountains.

00:24:33--> 00:25:00

Like me, you have a lot of house a lot, a lot of sadaqa a lot of this, what I can yet hear what sebahagian her as he sets a lot of you selling me but you also come and you've heard so and so and insulted so and so and you have like a list of transgressions. So what will happen is exactly what the prophets allottee was seldom said is that your husband will be taken and satisfy each one of them. You take

00:25:00--> 00:25:33

Some and you take some and you take some. And if you run out of good deeds, what happens? You will carry some of their sins in proportion to the crime. So imagine yourself striving to do the good that you can to stay away from the Haram but yet violating people's rights. So that could take that person into what Hellfire right until he's purified. So this is if you know someone, if you know someone that you have wronged, make sure that you seek their forgiveness before you and they die.

00:25:35--> 00:25:40

And the following Hadith also kind of is connected to this as about

00:25:45--> 00:25:50

kind of having a clean heart towards your brother and how that is a prerequisite for entering Jannah

00:25:52--> 00:26:38

Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran when Xanana if you so Dory him in Ville, we remove the animosity from their hearts meaning for the people of Jana. animosity, friction that they have in their hearts towards other believers who also will enter Jannah. We said we remove that animosity. Right. Now we'll come back to that in sha Allah. He sets a lot he was in them. Yeah, hello, sue me know what I mean. And he says when the believers survived hellfire, meaning they pass on a Syrah. They're walking on the Syrah Hellfire is beneath it says when they are have saved or survived that walk and now they are free of Hellfire is not going to fall in it. He sets Allahu Allahu wa salam for you

00:26:38--> 00:26:56

have a sunnah Allah controls in vain agenda that you are not they will be stopped and held on a bridge between heaven and hell. So now they're safe from what? Hellfire on their way to where? Jana so they are going to Jana. These are the believers.

00:26:58--> 00:27:43

Carla for your Casali about the human body in Milan, Nemo cannot be known for dunya they will be paid. Okay, some of them will be paid back for things that are wrongs that they have experienced from other people there. So some people there they will meet those who have done them harm. Both are believers. Both will enter Jannah and both have been saved from hellfire. But still they owe you something or you owe them something. So the prophets of Allah Allah will set an emphasis for your costume in home. They will be retrofitted for the wrong that they experienced by that person paying them for it. Okay. He said had the either who the one who who the in other home feed the whole

00:27:43--> 00:28:05

agenda. He says when now they are pro purified and cleansed, they will be permitted to enter Jannah so is Allah the Prophet sallallahu Sallam then makes this oath, I swear by the one who has the soul of Muhammad in his hand. One of them knows his house or is more familiar with HIV has house in Jana, than his house in the dunya

00:28:07--> 00:28:11

is more familiar with his house in Jannah, than his house in the dunya.

00:28:12--> 00:28:27

So the ayah that is we talked about when is that and if you saw door to him in the villa, we've removed the hatred in their hearts that they have or may have for each other. This tells you that because of happenings in this life, friction,

00:28:28--> 00:28:59

worldly matters or an misunderstandings. The believers could have that real in the dunya. They could fight right? Just like you fight with your brother. This like spouses fight, it doesn't mean that they had become hypocrites or disbelievers. Right? So you could see believers fighting. And you could see also believers because of that, really not on good terms with each other. Maybe even hating each other to an extent. But there's still what

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

believers, right. There's an Allah as though just says we're in five attorney mean and won't mean Enoch data, Rufus lubaina, Huma went to parties of believers fight, then reconcile them. So they're fighting because they love each other.

00:29:15--> 00:29:59

They're fighting because there is some hatred and animosity and friction between that pushes them to do something like that. It Allah calls both believers and he said, reconcile them. So yes, there could be some friction in the heart. And of course, it's better not to have it. But sometimes Subhanallah we're humans and you have to understand that will can't always be perfect. And not everyone that you see is going to be perfect for you. So sometimes sometimes, and it doesn't happen all the time. But sometimes if there's friction between two scholars, it does not take away from their scholarship and knowledge. Because why? They're after all what human beings

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

So there's some friction between scholars, this person doesn't really like him. But this person doesn't really like him, or they're fighting over something that's fine, that that friction is there. And it's an evidence of their humanity. And it didn't at one time, and he Abu Bakr and Omar Radi Allahu Anhu quarrel about something. Right? And even you they raised their voices at each other. What does that mean that they have no iman or they have no Taqwa. Or they have no manners, that oh, the builder. They are the best and all of these things, but again, humanity, this is what we are. So there's sometimes there is this real? So Allah azza wa jal will not let anybody enter

00:30:38--> 00:31:18

Jannah with that detail, because you're not supposed to experience any bitterness or pain in Jannah. You will love everybody and everybody will love you. Okay, so how can I enter Jannah while this person still owes me, he said, this thing be these bad things about me? Or I said these bad things about him? What do we do? We have to forgive each other. So that area that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam talked about, he says, Okay, you pass the sila, there is no no fear that you're gonna go back into hellfire. But you still have some thing when your heart towards your brother or your sister. So what Allah azza wa jal does, is that allows these people before the Enter agenda to reconcile. Now

00:31:18--> 00:31:22

some scholars have said yes, it's similarly has an ad and say, yeah,

00:31:23--> 00:31:35

right, they'll have to pay the other person. And some scholars have said no, it's an apology, and reconciliation. Because this is not the area now for the has not to be taken away, you already survived.

00:31:37--> 00:31:55

Hellfire, you're not going to go there. But it is for them now to talk to each other, forgive each other, so that when they enter Jannah, there's absolutely no hatred. And so that's why he said, Sal, Allahu alayhi wa sallam had to either hood deep want to go when they are purified and cleanse, then they will be allowed to enter

00:31:56--> 00:31:57


00:31:59--> 00:32:05

and that tells you in sha Allah also, the the beauty and the necessity of having a clean heart.

00:32:06--> 00:32:52

The beauty and necessity of having a clean heart that as much as possible, cleanse your heart now, and don't hold on any grudges as much as you can think about that. So and So may have said and done these things, because of an excuse. He's human, and I'm human, he's weak. And um, we all of us are bound to say and do things, so things that we regret. So forgive them. As you want Allah to forgive you don't hold grudges, because eventually you have to let go of that grudge if you want to enter Jannah. So you cannot be upset and angry with someone. And the more that you cleanse your heart and purify it, the more that Allah Zoda loves the heart that you have and blesses you for it. So I'm not

00:32:52--> 00:33:00

going to hate anyone for the sake of the dunya. I'm going to forgive everybody as I want Allah as to forgive me, you will feel better because of it.

00:33:01--> 00:33:10

You will feel better because of it. Whereas if you keep holding on to grudges, the first person to suffer is who you

00:33:12--> 00:33:55

are, you will be burning on the inside, right? agitating on the inside, look at what he has done. Look at what he has said, Look how he's happy. Because when you hold the grudge, you hate to see the other person happy. Look how he's happy, and I'm not. But if you just let go and you forgive, you find a way to forgive. And you tell yourself, he must have had an excuse. And if I can discover that excuse, or think of one and hamdulillah if not, maybe they have an excuse that I'm unaware of. And just let go of it, you will be better because of it. And they will be better because of it. And the interesting part here is that he sets a lot he will send them that they will recognize their house

00:33:55--> 00:33:56

they will know how to reach it

00:33:57--> 00:34:00

more so than this house in the dunya

00:34:01--> 00:34:02


00:34:03--> 00:34:08

And you what you could take from this is that because that is your real house.

00:34:10--> 00:34:12

You will know it better than this house.

00:34:14--> 00:34:31

Now why do you know it? How do you know it? And what does that say about about the dunya and the Ashira? Maybe you know it? Because if you remember that we said in the Hadith that Allah azza wa jal will show you your place in Jannah. If you are destined to go there in your grave, in the morning and evening.

00:34:33--> 00:34:41

You will see your station your place in Jannah in the grave, morning and evening. So every day you're seeing your house twice.

00:34:42--> 00:34:56

So when you enter your agenda, you know exactly where it is. Or that Allah azza wa jal simply puts that knowledge in your heart. So when you go into enter Jannah no one needs to tell you aware, and you don't need to ask for directions.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

Because that is now Oh,

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


00:35:01--> 00:35:46

and that is really beautiful here. Have you ever been overseas? Okay. And when you're overseas, what do you feel? Stranger? I don't know the place, I don't know the language out of nowhere to go. You constantly need to be asking for directions. And it doesn't feel like your own place. I mean, even no matter how much you enjoy it, but it doesn't feel like your own space, not your own things, you're not really fully comfortable. So in the dunya, even though we have places that we call home, you're not really fully in your place, there's always something that is missing a noisy neighbor, right? The place is too small, too far, not yours, you will be asked to leave. It's always something

00:35:46--> 00:36:36

that is missing in it. But just if you think about the dunya, just the dunya. If you travel now you finish your business overseas and you come back home. Once you land, where you feel I am home. Do you need to ask for directions? No, even if you take taxi, okay to take you home, you will tell him where to go and what road to take. And park park here not there. And you feel confident you feel comfortable. And you feel I've arrived at my place where I know everything, and I'm comfortable. Jen is like that. So in the dunya you're traveling, and no place is really your place. How many homes did you have? So far? You could count them? Right? How many homes this one and then you had to move

00:36:36--> 00:36:44

and rim this country to this country, this city to that city that they worked in that neighborhood? No one is really no no one single home is really your home

00:36:45--> 00:37:29

until you arrive into Jannah. And then you've arrived home. And that is your permanent place. So when you walk to it, or you're walking to the place that makes you feel comfortable and happy, and in your environment really so that Subhanallah you will know it more than the house that you spend your entire life in even your family home. You'll know that your house and Janna more than that. And you will love it more than that. Right? So some of us may be Subhanallah the longing for their home. Right? Not everybody can go home, right? Not everybody, right. And even if you had the chance, you're in fortunate enough and you can travel back, the place is not the same place. Maybe the house

00:37:29--> 00:37:31

is not even there. So it's really very hard to go home.

00:37:33--> 00:37:41

But and that could make you sad, right? But then if you remember that your real home is waiting for you.

00:37:42--> 00:37:58

That happiness will eclipse any other sadness you felt about a worldly home, because that home will be truly yours. So think about the happiness that you will experience if you visit your parents house, the house where you grew up the house will we have the greatest memories?

00:37:59--> 00:38:04

Take that and that will be greater in general. So that is the real home.

00:38:06--> 00:38:56

The following hadith is the title or the following chapter is 48 baboon monopoly, shall he server or the chapter the title of it is that the one who is questioned in detail will be punished. Says on the Day of Judgment when Allah has zoton is going to question people. It says if a person is questioned in detail, that person will be punished. Right? And where is this taken from directly from the saying of the Prophet sallahu wa salam who was speaking to Asia or around a shot of the Allahu Allah and he said Menorca shall who Saba the the one who had or will be questioned in detail who will be punished. If his reckoning is extensive, he'll be punished. So Aisha Radi Allahu Ana

00:38:57--> 00:39:45

said, he said doesn't Allah azza wa jal says, oh it also in another fact. Let me just combine two Hadees together. In another narration the Prophet sallallahu sallam said Lisa had on your house a woman piano de la Hallak anyone who will be brought to account on the day of judgment will perish. So Aisha Radi Allahu anha she said but oh prophets of Allah, meaning you're saying this, but Allah also says for a moment, oto Kitab will be a meanie for so for your house. Hey, Saba Nia, Sierra, the one who will be given his book To his right hand. He will have an easy questioning, he said. So his ASAP is easy. Right? And you're saying here All prophets of Allah that if someone goes through his

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

app on the Day of Judgment, they will be punished, they will perish? How do you understand this i with what you're saying? So he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the medallic. A lot of that is the presentation of one's

00:40:00--> 00:40:29

Since that's when he mean, what he had on, you know, casual haisa by yo multi Amati Illa. But no one will be extensively asked about what they've done but they will be punished. So here Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam is talking about two ways where somebody will be aware of his sins. One there will be to the believers and one that will be to those who will be punished. They could be that unbelievers and they could be believers who will be punished to Allah Allah.

00:40:30--> 00:40:32

So what is this art?

00:40:33--> 00:41:24

Allah in America, which is also at his Abuja, seal festival for your hassle with ASAP and your seal? That easy questioning or easy reckoning is he sets a lot he was salam that is the presentation meaning that Allah azza wa jal will tell that person, do you remember that sin on that day? And that sin on that day? And on third sin on that day? And the believer does what it says what? Yes, yes, yes. Allah does not go through all the sins, but reminds him of some sins, this sin, that sin, the sin? says yes, yes. And when the believer confesses all of that, Allah azza wa jal says, I've concealed it in the dunya. And I will forgive it today, meaning just between me and you,

00:41:25--> 00:42:09

okay, to remind him of the things that he has done. Why does Allah as a rule, do this? Of course Allah can do whatever he wants, we don't question. So what is the wisdom here? Maybe Allah Who annum it's a reminder of Allah's favours. Right? That is, you know, what you've done, you've done this, you've done this, if you forgot about it, you've done this, and you've done that. Yes. So Allah wants to show him that you are receiving a great favor today by just simply forgiving all of that, and you can go to Jana. So he understands that Allah's forgiveness is paramount here. And that Allah azza wa jal was kind and merciful. He witnesses Allah's mercy, as important to witness the Mercy of

00:42:09--> 00:42:39

Allah azza wa jal and the justice of Allah, because everybody will testify to it. So for that person, yes, yeah, Allah, I recognize all of this. And now all of that is forgiven. That is at hisab. Will you see the easy questioning? Or the presentation extends extensive questioning, on the other hand, where Allah will ask about everything or demand answers for it. If a person goes through that, then they will be punished for sure. Because of Allah, as Odin is demanding from you answers,

00:42:40--> 00:43:25

and blaming you for it, then it means it's a sign that the most generous is not look at not gonna let go of, you know, the most generous right when he wants to forgive, will ask you about few things. Okay, just to show you that he knows. So imagine now a king. And that King, he wants to forgive that person who has offended the king, but at the same time, right, he wants to know, let him know that I know what you've done. So ask him, did you do this? And that? He says, Yes, I did. say fine, I forgive it. Why does he want it to confess? Because he wants him to know that he knows and wants him to show that yes, I did favor you. So Allah as the most generous, if he wants to

00:43:25--> 00:44:10

forgive, will ask few questions about this, and let that person pass and forgive him. But if the most generous, keeps asking questions about what you've done, and we'll see an example of it now, then he's not a lot of good and I'm not going to let go of that person until that person is punished, whether it's punished forever, or as a disbeliever in Jahannam, or punished for a period as a believer because some believers do go to Johanna punished for a period until he is or she is clenched. Now an example of that questioning that the prophets Allah is seldom mentioned is he said Yuja will be carefully OMO piano the kaffir will be brought on the day of judgment

00:44:11--> 00:44:46

for your called hula hoop, it will be set to him or ated Oh Can Ilica immutable already the hub and content of the DB it says suppose that now you possess the Earth's fill of gold and in this old earth filled with gold and that you own this now? Would you ransom yourself with it? Would you pay it in order to save yourself? Allah fie Hakuna. He says yes, I will do so it will be set to him. But Quinta so Ultima Hua ASA Rahman Dalek, it says you are asked to do what is much simpler than that.

00:44:47--> 00:44:51

If that is really devastating, really when you hear when you actually think about it, right?

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

That is devastating. Because that person and that person will Lowe Adam Wright is on

00:45:00--> 00:45:20

Hello, Anna, in what he is saying meaning all of this earth is filled with gold and you possess it. You have it. Okay, you are rich beyond imagination. And would you give all of that now to save yourself from Hell's punishment? Would you do that? He said, Yes.

00:45:21--> 00:45:54

So you said, I asked you to do something much simpler than that. Much, much simpler than that. I've asked you to believe in Allah. Hello. pray five times a day. Give us a QA 2.5% of your savings. Annual one time Hajj. Stay away from 1234 Haram was that that difficult? Compared to giving everything on this earth? Was it as difficult in comparison? It isn't. It looks easy, right? Right,

00:45:55--> 00:46:42

isn't it? So we've asked yourself, why in God's name do we go to Hell fire if it's that easy. Five sodas a day. Give us a cow once a year. Hajj once in a lifetime. Fasting Ramadan, okay. In the beginning, it could be hard but you fasting with everybody? And there's 1234 major sins, just stay away from 1234? Is that hard? Yeah, we do find it really, really, really hard. Right? Subhanallah and think about it today. Just Just again, think about how easy it is. Consider everything that you own today. Everything you'd like your net worth today. How much is it? No one should volunteer but I'm just saying you think about it. How much are you worth today to take everything that you have in

00:46:42--> 00:47:01

the bank, everything that you own everything, everything, put it all together? Let's suppose that it's 50,000 Plus words 100,000. Let's know it's a million dollars, whatever it is. So think about it. How much am I worth today? This much? Would you give all of that to save yourself from Jahannam

00:47:04--> 00:47:17

Majan your car, everything in your bank? All the houses you may own all your wardrobe, everything you've saved everything would you give it all to save yourself from Jahannam

00:47:18--> 00:47:39

it would be worth it right? It would be worth more than worth it Zeigler had more than worth it. Is it easy to do? No. Did Allah ask for that? No. Allah Allah Allah Allah as for is very simple compared to this. Okay, because he knows if he asked for everything will give nothing.

00:47:40--> 00:48:08

So he asked for very simple things. So if you do that, you don't have to give all of your wealth and you don't have to give all of your time Subhanallah Imagine if Allah asked for all of your time, instead of five solders all of your time, and all of your wealth and all of your food and all we wouldn't do any we couldn't get Allah as the tool was generous with us. So for the kava, I had said I would give it all

00:48:09--> 00:48:56

and this calf or in this dunya would kill everybody to keep it. On that day. He says I can give it the thing that was most precious. I lived for and I died for I would give it to save myself. So to get it take let's take a lesson from that which is whatever you are wasting your life on in this dunya Okay, not necessarily a waste what you're spending your life on in this dunya it'll be nothing on the day of judgment if you don't obey Allah. So you would look back at it and you said, Yeah, I have accomplishment. Yeah, I have money. Yeah, I had power. But now all of it is gone, I would give all of it up. Just so that you will be in Jannah Subhan Allah.

00:48:57--> 00:49:33

So before that time comes before that day of regret comes, do what you can so that you don't have to face that type of questioning. So that's the topic one type of questioning that the prophets Allah recently talked about the extensive one, the detailed one, when somebody is going to be asked, Did I not give you health and feed you and give recalled water to drink and give more money? Did you believe that you will meet me how these types of questions that require answer and there is no answer. That's an indication that that person had failed

00:49:34--> 00:49:41

and Allah wants to show him that he had failed and he has to spend time in hellfire

00:49:43--> 00:49:47

the following also Hadith Oh see we have one two inch

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

he said Salah hurry or Silla Mammon commit had an Illa was a you can Lima Hula, hula yo multi Amati Lisa bein Allahu Urbina, who told you man, it says every single one of you will be speaking to

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

Allah and Allah will speak into him directly. There is no one in the middle between you and Allah. No third human intermediary between you and Allah azza wa jal. He says the Mayan guru fella Rashi and koderma, who he says will look and he will see nothing ahead of him. Then he will look and he will see Hellfire in front of him. from Minnesota. I mean, c'mon, yeah, totally not our Bishop Pitampura if you can save yourself from hellfire, even with a half a date, meaning do that.

00:50:30--> 00:50:32

So here Subhan Allah.

00:50:33--> 00:50:54

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam is talking about that scene when he says you are going to be conversing with Allah, and Allah will be talking to you. And there is no one in the middle told you man means someone who hears from you and reports it to Allah and hears from Allah and reports it back to you is as such a person will not exist. It's you and Allah directly.

00:50:55--> 00:51:24

You you're going to be asked questions, Allah will ask you, you will hear it. And you will give answers and Allah azza wa jal will give you answers back or will give you further questions. So for that time, and he said, salatu salam at that time, you will look in another ration. You will look to the right, and you look to the left, and then they look to the front and it's hellfire. Why do people look to the right and to the left? What happens when you want to escape?

00:51:25--> 00:51:47

What happens when you are looking for helpers? What do you look right and left? Where do I go? Right and left? There's nothing There's nowhere to go. And you look and ahead of you in front is Hellfire with a other Rila Alright, so that's why he said Sal, Allahu Allah was Sydenham. Now you're going to be speaking to Allah and me that means also that he can hide.

00:51:48--> 00:52:02

He can't bluff. He can't have false excuses. It works with your parents, right? It works with your boss. It works with your friends, oh, I was late and you're not late really. But you can lie to Allah.

00:52:03--> 00:52:22

Because why this this scene is speaking to Allah directly and there is no one in the middle for you to try to escape. And no one can help you look to the right to look to the left and that is Hellfire is in front of you. So what do you do? You save yourself from it, even with half a day, and we can complement this

00:52:23--> 00:52:54

with his saying salami cinnamon, the first and second Hadith. He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it the cannot save yourselves from the fire from out of our Usha then he looked away, like he was talking to them. And he says save yourselves from the fire. Then he looked away from us and he said save yourself in the fire from out of the washer, Hatha Latham. And he looked away three times meaning he said it three times. And he looked away three times hotter Vaughn and no young guru, Ilya until we believe that he was looking at it.

00:52:55--> 00:53:16

As if the prophets Allah Salam could see it, and he says, save yourself from it and he looks away, he doesn't want to see it. Then He says it again. And he looks away and says a third time and he looks away and he says it the coonara even save yourself from the fight even with half a date. If you cannot find that then a good statement. A good word.

00:53:18--> 00:53:50

So all of us are in this position that the prophets Allah Allah Azza wa sallam is talking about ahead of us is hellfire. And he when he sets a lot, he was in them, save yourself from it and looked away, we have to believe that the prophets Allah Salam could see it. He could see it. That's why he looked away. Otherwise, it would make no sense for him to look away. He could see it. And he's talking about it based on visual confirmation of what Hellfire is. So he's saying he could see save yourself from it. And he doesn't want to keep looking at it. He looks away.

00:53:51--> 00:53:58

So what do we do to save ourselves from hellfire? He said the minimum What ship would Tamara have a date?

00:53:59--> 00:54:04

Okay, and we said before, I don't know on in this series or elsewhere, what is half a day do

00:54:06--> 00:54:46

this thing, almost nothing, it does not clearly fill up with the stomach of anyone. But if that's what you could do, then that is the good that you should do. So the prophets Allah sent me said, This is what you owe what you own. And that's the best that you can do. Do not look down on any small good deed. And maybe you own more than that. Maybe you're a lot richer than that. But your knifes yourself does not allow you to give more. Should you not give this little you say give that little even if it's $1 someone is in need. And you say $1 What is this gonna do?

00:54:47--> 00:55:00

Okay, no, don't stop yourself from giving because you do not know what that dollar could do. And if it is really sincere, and Allah knows that it's coming from your heart. Maybe that dollar will be 100,000

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

wasn't when you meet Allah azza wa jal

00:55:03--> 00:55:08

could be. So half a day, it could change a person's life. It could

00:55:09--> 00:55:10


00:55:11--> 00:55:31

It could impress somebody not that you're doing it to impress someone, but it could inspire them. Oh, this person gives her I'll give sadaqa as well because so you will carry the good deeds of the following sadaqa and so on. Or it could change the appropriate person's life in ways that you do not know. So half a date.

00:55:33--> 00:55:57

What if you don't own half a day? What if you don't own anything? What is the thing that all of us can do? Kelly metal, the Yerba a good word that you say. What is a good word that you could say? And advice that you give to someone any thing that leads to what Allah loves and advice that you give to someone, you can solve them, you comfort them, you guide them somewhere, you protect them from harm,

00:55:58--> 00:56:17

you make them happy, you tell them that you know, Allah has Faraj relief will come soon you make dua for them, you smile in their face, Kenny McClay EBA every person is able to do this is capable of a good word. Every single person no matter your financial situation.

00:56:18--> 00:56:21

That's where he sits a lot. He was sitting them if you even cannot, then this.

00:56:22--> 00:57:05

So we have an opportunity, in fact, every single day to protect ourselves from hellfire. And that should be an objective. Save yourself from the fire. How do I do this? Yeah, Allah, He says with a good word that you spread, with sadaqa, with Salah with fasting with coming to the masjid with reading the Quran. Everything that is good is a barrier between you and jahannam. So do as much of it as you can, before the current time comes, and it's going to come where you can't do anything anymore. So invest not only in the dunya. But think about investing in the akhira. So we say here's $1 in my savings account,

00:57:06--> 00:57:50

where's the dollar that's gonna call for your alpha, or when I'm not saying they have to be equal, but also invest in the alpha. So here's $10, let's say for the dunya. Let's say here's $1 for the alpha, right, so that you have something waiting for you over there. Okay, I spent this time studying, working, maybe cooking and cleaning. And these things could be a bad with the right intention. Most of the time we forget that right? Yep. So I've given this for the dunya Alhamdulillah. For this day, ALLAH given me the power and health to do this. You don't have minutes for the FLR because you also need that investment you need, you know, things to save you then. So

00:57:50--> 00:58:06

where are the minutes that belong to the aphylla. So minutes spent in Salah minutes spent into minutes spent in vicar minutes spent in reading the Quran. So as you work for the dunya work for the axilla to have this balance, you don't want to find yourself

00:58:08--> 00:58:35

poor on the Day of Judgment, whether we blame someone in this life, if we find that they are healthy, and they have skills, and they have talent, but they're doing nothing. And they're sitting reliant on people's help, and their donations, and they're just requesting assistance, they're wasting their life. We blame that person. But if Allah had given you the power, the energy the time to invest in your asset and to save yourself and you do nothing,

00:58:36--> 00:58:51

aren't you more blameworthy than the person who was wasting his dunya because if you waste your dunya you've just wasted the years that will eventually go away. But if you waste the earth era, who is going to help you then and that is what everlasting?

00:58:52--> 00:59:10

So we ask Allah azza wa jal to make us you know, among those who strive for the earth era, and who are dedicated in their Eva and who have certainty of belief, and we ask Allah to cleanse our hearts and cleanse our body from what he hates apana with Allah and replace it with what he loves. Allahu Allah.

00:59:11--> 00:59:13

Have questions in sha Allah let me know.

00:59:23--> 00:59:28

So if a non believer owes the believers or the other way around.

00:59:30--> 00:59:47

So if the non believer owes the believer the formula should apply as well. So they owe you something they've wronged you, they've taken something from you. They may not have any good deed they will not have any good deeds. So what will happen is that you will take from their sins and would be put on the right.

00:59:49--> 01:00:00

They're going to be taken right but it's just you have sins on you that you don't want to carry, and they owe you something so for justice to prevail.

01:00:00--> 01:00:15

On that day, they will take some of your sins. Right so they will carry that that so that there will be extra punishment from them. So the believers by the way, they're not all punished the same. Right? There are some better number levers and worse non believers

01:00:20--> 01:00:21

Yeah, yeah. So

01:00:24--> 01:00:51

Oh, okay. Okay. So it means that you you owe them something, you owe them something right. So just as dictates that you can carry some of their sins. They're not going to have good deeds, but you're going to have to carry some of their sins. Right? Well lo Allah right. And so that could you know, decrease their punishment it doesn't erase it, but decrease their punishment, right? unless Allah azza wa jal you know, just dismisses it right. Lord.

01:00:53--> 01:00:56

Anyone else has any question? No.

01:01:03--> 01:01:03


01:01:10--> 01:01:10


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

now so I mean when the believers are punished in Hellfire is it to the same degree of the non believers. So, we said that it is levels right. So, the non believer hypocrites belong to the lowest levels of Jana and that is the Johanna that is the severest of punishment, and then it begins to lessen based on the crimes of the non believers. So non believers are better than other non believers. The believers are not going to reach the levels all the way of the worst disbelievers and the hypocrites, but their punishment will be at the upper levels. Now depending on their crime, it could be at the lowest level right or it could be beneath that Allah Allah, but it doesn't sink all

01:02:00--> 01:02:03

the way to the level of the disbelievers.

01:02:06--> 01:02:07

Are we good?

01:02:09--> 01:02:13

You're done. By Subhanak long behind a shadow I laid the stuff
