salatu salam ala Rasulillah he, he or sabe he was salam.
Lama Inada Kritika we should critique your house near bed attic Allama eliminare million pharaoh now and finally my limped in I was in a human or a bell al Amin
so in Kitab our Republic, the softness of the heart homes I had Buhari chapter 49
And the title of that chapter baboon yet Hello Ginetta Sabrina elephant biliary he said
that 70,000 will enter Jannah without questioning
with without presenting an account without being asked and given answers or what they did or did not do. So, remember, we talked about and he said that those will be questioned and that the believers are those who will receive their book with the right hand they will have an easy questioning remember
for so for your hazard where he survey your seal, whereas the nonbelievers their questioning will be extensive and detailed.
So, here it will hurry Rahimullah they can I assume the hadith is saying that actually there will be 70,000 Who will not be asked any question at all will enter Jannah without going through that process. And in here Rasul Allah is Allah Azza wa sallam says or said already that Allah Yellowman I was showing the nations the omega
one omega following each profit. So I was shown the omen for the Nibi yo yo mod Roma Houma. So I saw a prophet passing, walking, being followed by an ummah meaning that a lot of people want to be Yo Yo Ma Roma, aha nifer and a prophet who is being followed or accompanied by Nefer only three to five to 10 people. Those are his only followers. Whenever you you're more Roma, hula Shara and then a prophet with only 10 followers
and the be Yo Yo Ma Roma will Ahimsa and a prophet who had only five followers wouldn't it be you Yemen Rwanda and a prophet by himself that he adds not even a single follower or anyone who had believed in him for another two for either so I don't care then I also looked and I found that there was a lot of people in the horizon for a full two year degree in humanity I said oh Gibreel are this is this my Oma? He said No well I can under eel oh four but look at the horizon not this area, not in this direction. But that other area and that other horizon
for not too far either. So don't get here so when I looked at that horizon, I saw that there were a lot of people Gibreel said these are your OMA well hola is Luna alfen koderma Hula Hisar Bali himolla Agha and in front of them, meaning leading them are 70,000 Larissa ally himolla that they will not be brought to account and will not be punished will not be questioned and will not be punished 70,000 Pull to walima I said why is that the case meaning that they can have has so easily through that day of judgment. So he said can we lie ACTA guna wala yester Pune wala yatta yatta una were adorable him yet our calluna he said they use not to have que carburization
So they used not to medicate themselves with catheterization to be branded with a hot iron that would be put on the body to burn it. That's a form of medication. While you're still gonna they did not ask for Rukia Wallah. Yeah, totally Aruna. They don't follow bad luck or inclinations of bad luck, right?
What a lot of be him yet our calluna and they rely upon if you're Rob for karma Illa. Here Akasha took no medicine. So Akasha are the Allahu Anhu among the Sahaba who was listening to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, whether Allah Ajahn and Eminem, he said, Ask Allah that He would make me one of them. So the prophets Allah said them said Allahu wa jal, Humann homie says Allah make him one of them. For Muhammad Allah He urged her another man followed Akash and he said unto Allah Janin, enormous is also any prophet of Allah also ask Allah that He would make me one of them. Ha, that's a baka Bihar Akasha. He said the Akasha preceded you with this request. God got to
it first before you.
So this hadith is really an important Hadith and part of that hadith actually, we explained right about the 70,000, who will not be asked and will not be punished and then the attributes that made them so and we will talk about it again in case some of you did not witness that explanation, and perhaps we'll be able to say something new about it.
But this is a Hadith in part that Buhari repeats because there's an added benefit in it, as you will see. So let's see some of the lessons in that hadith. And immediately here when the prophets Allah syndrome was shown the nations the OMA, you realize that there is a lesson for that for all of us, for the prophets, Allah Allah was in but also for all of us, which is if you see a prophet and the prophet was sent to a nation, and you see that for some prophets, a lot of people followed.
Give us an example, who is a prophet that was followed by a lot of people and other than Mohamed salatu, Salam Musa, actually, that's the nation the OMA that the prophets, Occident MCs, and he thinks that's their OMA, because that's a lot of them. So Musa is an example. But do you have other examples where you have a prophet to was only three to 10 people with him, or 10 people with him or five people with him? Or ABSOLUTELY NO ONE with Him, meaning Allah had sent him to a nation to an ummah
and no one believed, and no one followed, and no one listened. So when he comes back, because East profit when he's resurrected, and the people are resurrected, they follow their profit. Okay?
So imagine this prophet being sent, and no one believes in him. And on the Day of Judgment, he walks along. The
what is a lesson that we can take from this? The first lesson is that the truth does not allow attract a lot of people
in general, the nature of truth on this earth, especially when it's religious truth, but truth in general, does not attract a lot of people. us as human beings were attracted to falsehood.
We're attracted to entertainment and playing and games, attracted to fun things to lies, deception, that works. Okay, that appeals
but the truth because the truth is heavy.
Right? Now what is easier, okay? To go watch a soccer game, or sit for a halacha
what's easier, if not soccer, then if you don't like soccer than basketball, whatever it is, which one is easier, watching a game or sitting in the masjid listening to a halacha or coming to Asia, coming to Fudger? Which one? Absolutely, games here, Time passes quickly, say where did the time go? Where as you know, when you're sitting in the masjid, waiting for the Salah, or waiting for the hook. But it seems like the time is now moving. Why? Because the truth is heavy.
And heavy means what the truth is, it means what it has value, it has weight, it has meaning. And it asks you to do something right? It demands things from you, or as the trivial, the false asks nothing of you just sit and be entertained. I don't want anything from you. That's why it's easy. But the truth asks you not once you know you got to move, you have to do something that's heavy on the heart and heavy on the body in the beginning. And the beginning later on, it becomes the thing that you like the most. But you have to train yourself and overcome that impasse, or that obstacle of the truth is hard. Just think of it. Ramadan.
The difficulty in the beginning, and the ease of the end, that's just just a random example. Anything, all aspects of the truth in the beginning, they are difficult. Ultimately, they become easy and more rewarding that falsehood, because falsehood in the beginning, it's attractive. But if you engage if you let it take over you, ultimately it is destructive. And you will feel that emptiness, that destruction. So the truth is not that attractive to humanity. That's why you could have a prophet that comes to a nation. And no one follows him and no one believes in him or as if you were to see that nation and see an entertainer. Right, he would be able to gather more people
than that profit.
Like, or if a person you know, open a restaurant and he had food, nothing against food restaurants. But I'm saying if that is the attraction, there'll be more people following him to eat his food than following a profit.
So also, keep in mind the lesson also that you take from that and don't fall be fooled by numbers.
Don't be fooled by how many people believe a particular thing, or like a particular thing. Numbers are not an indication of quality of the truth of something. In fact, sometimes it's the opposite. So you have to check the merit of the thing.
The truth of the thing is
Then judges not judge it based on how many people like it, or how many people dislike it. And that is a lesson if we learn it, it will solve a lot of problems for us. Okay. The other thing also that we could take from this is that there is effort and there is result. And Allah azza wa jal wants from you the effort, the result is up to him. subhanho wa taala.
So, a prophet, and the Prophet is the best of humanity, the best day a collar to Islam. What does it mean that he called went to some people ask them to be Muslim did everything he can and yet they fail to accept Islam was the failure his or there's,
failure, but there is no result. Here he went, he asked people invited them to Islam, nobody accepted was the result.
What was important is not that how many people accepted, but that he had he had delivered the message message to them, he gave the message. That is his task. Whether they accept or not, believe or not, is up to Allah as Odin. So you're not going to be asked about the results. You will be asked about the effort. And about your SN in the effort.
A son is important here. You can say for instance, well, no one is going to listen to me. I'm just gonna give whatever.
Right? Like advice, let's say for instance, you're giving your family advice. And it's difficult to give family advice. This is wrong. This is right. Follow this, don't do that. So you say to yourself, they're not going to listen to me. So I'm not just gonna say anything anymore. I'm tired.
So it's not up to you, whether they listen or not right? Let's delay him. People say that. You don't have no control over them. But what do you have? What do you have control over? Whether you give that message or not? So results don't matter as much. What matters is do your best with Ehsaan meaning give the best advice? In the best of manner? Seek the best times don't say well, it's their fault. They have to accept it is their responsibility. I'm just gonna throw it at them. No, that's not how the prophets of Allah operated. They gave the mud Woon those who are being called every opportunity to ask to inquire to accept the truth. And then when those are being called failed, they
failed because of them, not because of the message, not because of a lack of effort. So have they you know, excused before Allah azza wa jal, so maybe you will make the hour
and no one will accept.
Check whether you're doing it with SN or not make dua. But if after all of this, you still fail, don't see a field. Say my job is just to give Dawa and the acceptance is up to Allah azza wa jal, you may try to do something whether in the dunya or in the F era, but not reach your goal. You did your best but not reach your goal. Does that mean that you failed?
It means that Allah did not destined that, and Allah will look at what you've done your struggle and your strive and reward you for this even though you have not reached the result. So here is a message about frustration, message about results, message also about the value of the of truth and the value of those who follow it. So, as we said, when he saw a lot of believers, Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He first thought this is a man or it turns out that they are the followers of Musa Ali he set up. Then he said, but this is your OMA
and there were a lot. And as we said in the other Hadith,
the Omo Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will account for at least 50% of the people of Jana. So that means that it's a lot of believers. Then he says, this is your OMA and at the front leading them are 70,000 who will enter Jannah without any questions and without any punishment.
So those 70,000
Those could be the best of this aroma.
Or could be that they carry a special virtue and maybe other people could be as good as them or better Allahu Allah. We're not told, but there's evidently a distinction that they have because they're in the front
and the enter Jannah without any question,
what did you do? What do you do not do what money did you have? Nothing, nothing. Not why is that? Here the prophets Allah Allah wa salam when he asked you breathe deeply
Will tells him canula actor when they did not treat themselves their illness with catheterization. Now, no branding or LK is allowed. It's not haram. Some say it's my crew, but it's allowed right? But people don't use it today. All right, so we're not gonna really don't really have to discuss it is summed in some instances it could be disliked, in some instances. It's halal, it's halal, but we're talking here about people at the highest level of taco that those something could be disliked like this, they let go of it. They don't treat themselves with it. But anyway, it may not be relevant for us today. Lie your store owner, they don't ask for root here.
Now, why is it that they don't ask for rakia?
Right? Now? It's fine if you read Rottier for yourself? Absolutely. Right. Because the prophets, Allah said we used to do that. Right? Right, that cut off Saba Han Messiah and all that that's Rukia, you read al Fatiha, or you read in a way that you blow on your hand wipe over your body that sort of clear. So the Prophet would do it for himself, he would do it for others. The question here is about you requesting it. So when you request a Rukia, again, is it halal? Is it allowed? Absolutely allowed? It's not haram. So I don't want to through this hadith to make things difficult for some of us. Or I can ask anyone to read through here on me, no, you can. But here that 70,000
that are kind of have reached levels of terrain and level of Tawakkol. Their heart is attached to Allah as xodus. So they don't want to ask someone for up here because in case they do give you a little clearer, they read Rukia on you. And then you're healed your heart or a branch of it will be tracted or attached to them. He is holy, or he is pious or he is a Willie is because of him.
Right? It's because of him that I got healed. So they distance themselves from that by doing what not asking for Okay, and not relying on somebody else.
And that is based on their to Work Code. That is I'll trust Allah azza wa jal, and that all healing comes from him. And I don't want my heart to be attracted to or reliant on anybody else. So I will not ask, right? Now your stuff.
But that does not mean that. So some 100 lm I've said doesn't mean that if somebody comes in volunteers, right, they says, I want to read Rukia on you, you don't have to stop him, and you will still be included in that category. Because that person volunteer.
You didn't ask him did not request from him. Okay. But again, let me tell you also that if you're a person who's suffering and you're in need, don't let this hadith stop you, because not everybody would be able to climb to that level of telecoil. And it don't languish his suffering in suffering, saying, you know, you're suffering every single day, every single night and you need someone to help you. So there is a need, but you think I need to comply with this category, that category of people, they have such the Quran, Allah azza wa jal such, you know, to hate in their hearts that they could endure that they can endure this. You remember the Hadith of the woman that came to the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? And she said, I have seizures and I fall unconscious. And I uncover because of it, ask Allah azza wa jal that I'd be cured. And he said, some Allah, Allah, you are Sydenham. I could do this if you want or you be patient, and go to Jana. Which one do you want? Right? So she said, I'll be patient. But ask Allah azza wa jal that I do not uncover when I am unconscious. So pray, prayed for that. So OLALIA was salam. So that's an option, but not everybody can take that option. So I don't want to make this difficult on people. If you need the real clear, you can ask for it. And says, Hola, yatta yatta yatta una Wella yatta yatta una. They don't believe
in bad luck and bad omens. They don't believe in bad luck and in bad omens. Like what are examples of bad luck and bad omens?
I'm sorry, I couldn't
number 13. Right. You go to some hotels like there is no 13 that is very odd, right? But number 13, right. Or any other thing a black cat walking under a ladder opening an umbrella indoors? A lot of things like that. Play it okay. So you're not a person like this. You don't a person who usually believes in these things. But then one of those days, you see a crawl, crawl and then he comes and he lands on your car or up
A black cat that comes and passes in front of your yard, or whatever you see. And then all of a sudden you feel, Oh, maybe something bad is gonna happen today.
That feeling, by the way, is natural. Having these types of feelings? Or maybe that's an indication or a sign of something bad, right? That's natural. How do you push it?
away? How do you get rid of it?
By reminding yourself that that's not a sign, and reminding yourself to trust Allah xojo not random signs, that the color of a particular animal is no indication of anything, an object placed here and there is indication of nothing and that this is *can, Allah xojo. When you think it's predictive, it does not predict and proceed as you've planned. Don't let it derail your plans or change your plans. Or just because I saw something, as I was leaving my house, I'm not leaving my house today, let this Hara proceed with your plans. So because they don't do this, don't do this and don't do that. We're allowed to him yet our cologne and they truly rely on Allah xojo with their heart with
their decisions with their body. Allah does not ask them anything, because if they have purified their hearts, purified their body, and interestingly, also they don't ask people.
They don't ask people. And maybe there's a connection between between them not asking people and Alana asking them because those people I mean, no one can be sinless. Right? It can be these people are not sinless. But why is it that Allah doesn't ask them because the to hate in their heart?
And to what cool that they have, and the fact that they did not rely on others, but only asked Allah for it. Allah did not ask him. What did you do with this? And what did you do with that, but rather pass easily into Jana?
And by the way, also, what's the difference between asking for Rukia and seeking physical medication? Is there? Is it the same or different? They say it's different. What's the difference? seeking physical medication is physical. Right?
Rokia is supernatural.
Right, the rope here, if you see someone read this, and that and this and that, and they read it, and you become better. There is no physical connection between what he did and what happened to you. So because of that supernatural element, you may start to believe supernatural things about him. But the doctor when he prescribes Here, take this medicine, take this thing, take that thing and it works. The doctor is not a magician. doctor prescribes something that anybody else can prescribe. You take it and it benefits you. Anybody else can lead you to it. So you don't believe something extra special about the doctor. But if you start believing things about the doctor, that it's only
him who can cure or it's the medicine that had cured you are not Allah azza wa jal, then that is what a decrease a diminishing of the worker. So you have to go back to no this doctor just led me to this thing only this medicine only works because of Allah azza wa jal so recapture your Tawakkol en Allah azza wa jal by remembering that the doctor is only a tool and medicine is only a tool and Allah as is the healer, where she and the Shafi that she fell in love, she fell okay Allah heal, you are the healer, there's no healing except your healing. It's not the healing of the doctor. And it's not the healing of the medicine. Right? So Tawakkol can diminish because the physical medicine so
check yourself when that's happening, so that not you not relying on this.
But rather relying on Allah as origin. So okay ship no medicine, or medicine. He asked the Prophet salallahu Salam, O prophets of Allah, pray that Allah makes me one of them. So the prophets Allah Salam prayed for him. Now let me make him one of them. Somebody else asked the prophets of salaam right after that. And he said a lot he was salam Subotica Bihar Acacia Acacia preceded you with that request. Now, as they say, why is it that the province It is him did not make that for that other person, they see two possibilities will lower and um first is that Akasha was suitable to receive that dua whereas the other person did not deserve it.
The other one is that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wanted to close the door.
That is if Akasha asked and he says you and this person and you then what's going to happen? Everybody gonna wind so you wanted to close that door SallAllahu wasallam see, only the first person will get it. Now, even in that there's a lesson which is what if there's something good rush to it?
And if we if we believe that
Both of those people were qualified to be included. What is the thing that prompted Okasha to do it first? It's ultimately it's not like you being so alert and so
aware and cunning and you know, on your feet, right? That once you see an opportunity, you leap and you get it. It's not that it's not that issue. But it is though feedback from Allah as success guidance from Allah, that the right opportunity at the right time you seize it. So there's something about Akasha, first of all, but also that readiness that if I see something good, I'll rush and get it, you don't wait.
So Akasha had to the two of these things were low atom one, he had no fear from Allah. The word is that Sophia from Allah comes because you have been striving and you're struggling and you want the truth and you want what Allah loves. So naturally, your eye when you see it, what do you do I want to be this. Whereas if you're a person who is not interested, you will just listen. And your heart will not tell you ask, because you're not interested. Right? So the more pious you are, the more likely that you will ask for things that please Allah because this is what you're thinking about. So Akasha, or the Allahu Anhu was such a person. He saw an opportunity, and this is something he's
dreaming about. He wants this. He wants Jana. So yeah, make me one of them. But if not, you won't ask. The other thing. Also, as we said, it's,
it's to rush to opportunities of righteousness. So you see an opportunity for sadaqa is the same. It's the same principle opportunity for sadaqa you don't wait. No, you'd be the first opportunity for Salah you'd be the first for Dawa, you'd be the first don't stay back and say oh, somebody else will do it. If somebody else will do it. They'll be Subotica Okasha, if there's an opportunity to give sadaqa and you just wait to somebody else to give it that person will get that reward the argue that person will give that dollar not you. So you have to compete to seek righteousness. Not sit back, right?
Will lower. So that's that's the Hadith.
And the following one adds a little bit and the following one adds a little bit. So let's see what the following one adds.
He said Sal, Allahu Allah, he was setting them.
Yet Holloman omit user Martin Zuma Ratan himself Luna alpha A says 70,000 will enter Jannah from my ummah, today oh do Homido Atul Kumari Leila Ted Beth. It says their face will be lit like a full moon
will be lit like as lit as there's as much light coming from their faces as the moon when it is full. So that's one thing that this hadith adds.
The third Hadith also adds something else. Where he said sallallahu alayhi wa salam, they'd hold an agenda. Dimino matusadona Alpha 70,000 will enter from my alma mater mercy Kena they're holding hands. If you don't bother him be Bob had diet holo. He had Hula, hula, Hula, hula Jana, until their first and their last will enter Jana, who would you whom other low income related tilbud. And their faces will be as late as the moon when it's full. So the light on their face reflects what?
The light that is in their hearts. Right? It's a reflection.
And Allah oxygen makes it most evident on that day. And when they enter Jannah, but a trace of it is in this life as well, that for those who see. Right? So, no, we're kind of maybe wired or created to appreciate beauty.
Right? But we don't always use it or seek it in the right way. Right? And beauty gets commercialized. Right? Like if someone is beautiful people grab them, and you're going to model for us and you're going to be a star and an entertainer. Why? Because your face attracts people. So why is it that that face attracts people?
It's natural in us right to be attracted to beauty including beauty and faces, but that beauty that is given Okay?
is nothing compared to a beauty that is acquired.
So that is you could begin beautiful, right? Handsome as a child, teenager, young adult.
Then what do you do with that beauty and how you live determines
out and what you will look like later on. You may not retain that beauty. If you anger Allah as a surgeon and you abused that gift, it could be taken away from you that he could become uglier.
And that ugliness can be seen. Right? Especially if the person disobeyed Allah azza wa jal think about drugs, thinks about thinking about alcohol, think about committing the haram. It Subhanallah has that effect on the face, especially for those who can see and even if a person is a non Muslim, you would look at them in a non Muslim looking at someone who had lost that beauty because of their sinful life, they could see that something is wrong with the face.
or dissatisfaction you notice some people Allah xuejun Subhan Allah Allah as the dinette gave them, that natural beauty for you. But because they are in context that emphasize perfection of beauty, what did they do to them to their faces, plastic surgery, right? And they and you could see it on them, and makes them uglier, not more beautiful Subhanallah, you disfigure yourself, you disfigure yourself. Because there's something empty here.
And the lifestyle that you're living does not give you satisfaction. So you seek it through looking at trying to be or look something like somebody else, and you lose the natural beauty that Allah gave to you. So you see how Subhanallah society warps people's minds? No, you're not good enough. So there's this natural beauty, and you could be stunning, but you'll lose it because of how you disobey Allah xojo. And there is acquired beauty. It's not beauty that you get by paying money to someone who will
rearrange your face, like a law firm to rearrange your face, or beauty creams or what have you. It's by obeying Allah azza wa jal, because there's a natural light that will shine from your face.
From your sujood from your DUA, there's a natural light that will shine from your face. And the believers can see that and the consensus, and on the Day of Judgment, they will be complete reflection of that. So why are their faces shining like that, like the moon is because of their Iman, because of their dukkha, because of their love of Allah azote. And so ultimately, for saying to people seek the euro, and Allah will give you the best of this era and the dunya you want people to love you. You want to be beautiful and handsome, right? You want to be at hamdulillah content, not necessarily rich, but content and that is be being really rich, obey Allah oxygen and follow His
ways. And Allah as it will give you all of that. And another thing that you take it you can take from that moto massacre in African Babylon B. But he says they're holding hands, all of them until all of them enter Jannah. And there is something else that other another Hadith will add, but we'll leave it to that other Hadith, but take from it that they are brothers,
and that they're not good enough standing in competition with each other. Right. And if Jana is big enough to include everybody,
there are no limitations. You could be you and your brother and your sister and everybody else can enter gin. So you're not competing in a sense of I need to be better than him. So you can take his hand you can take her hand and all of you could pull yourself and your brothers and sisters together to enter Jannah so there's that brotherhood that is demonstrated when they enter Jannah
to help to more Hadith similar to each other that remain in this chapter.
And there are sort of lies a lot he was had them set how to either virginity Jana, Luna, Rena, some my opinion was the non binary homea Allah Narula moved via allergenicity law moved to Hollywood. It says when the people of Heaven enter Heaven and the people of hellfire enter a hellfire, a caller will stand between them between heaven and hell. And he will say, oh, people have fire, no death.
And all people of heaven, no death, eternity. So there will be actually in the second that hadith that is exactly the statement that will be sent to both of them, or people of fire, no death or eternity. And all people of heaven, no death or eternity.
And there's extra that another Hadith will come in sha Allah
soon in sha Allah if not today, next week.
But that is an interesting announcement, right? When people of gender enter Jannah and the people of Jahannam, enter Jahannam and that color stands and he says no death or tunity. Now
when people enter hellfire, right, and we understand that though
will be those who will leave it the believers, right? Those who have Islam, they believe in Allah azza wa jal among the ummah, Muhammad salatu salam and the previous nations
that you've after these guys leave, and you have the disbelievers What is the greatest hope that disbelievers will have?
Before this announcement,
before this announcement, the greatest hope that they could,
then they be taken out, right? Or they could die like this will end, whatever way it will end.
Any person is going through any type of suffering. What is the thing that will relieve that suffering is that this has an end, that if you tell someone this will never end, that kills, right? If you believe that this will never end that kills a person. So one of the things actually to heal your own suffering in this dunya is to believe and to know and remind yourself or those around you, by the way, this has to end. Once you believe that it has an end, surely you will breathe a sigh of relief hamdulillah it's going to end cannot last forever. Okay? And even the intensity, not only that, it will end but even that intensity cannot last forever, please that will take some of the
burden away for you. What happens when they are told?
There is no exit. And there is no hope. And there is no death.
That's despair. That is punishment in itself that this will not end. That in itself is punishment. And what is the greatest fear that the people of gender could have
is that this could end that there is come a time when come out.
So what happens when Allah azul tells them or that call or tells them you're not going to die, and you will be eternal? in Jannah. That's complete happiness. So nothing will take it away. So as another other Hadith when it comes, we'll say so the people of Ghana will be even happier when they hear that this is that that is a guarantee from Allah azza wa jal, and the people of hellfire will be even sadder. Because that's the destiny that they are going to meet. It's not going to end. Right. And that's why that announcement is there. Now
the following chapter is Babel Sefa to Jannetty. One knob is a description of Heaven and Hell, and there are several Hadith there.
So, in it, he says, well, Hala Abu Musa al Bukhari says Abu Zaid said that the Prophet sallallaahu Salam said that the first food that the people of heaven will eat is from the liver of the whale. We talked about this right, that there is a whale, that Allah azza wa jal, you know, you know, it's a creation of Allah azza wa jal, and that thing will be slaughtered and people of gender will be honored with eating its liver as the first thing they know that they will eat, or the ox and then the whale. So that since we have described it, no need to comment much on it. The following hadith is in part repeated but again, even though it's repeated insha Allah will explain it he sets a lot
he was seldom allowed to fill Jana he says I looked into heaven
or inside heaven for our A to X or it held for Cora essay saw that most of its people are the poor. And I looked at to hellfire and I saw that most of its people inhabitants are women.
The following Hadith, similar narrative, he said somebody was salami. You know, I stood at the door of heaven. And I saw that most of the people who have entered it or LMS King the poor
and was hobbled Jedi Malibu soon and the rich are held back. They are not harbor Nadia, could O'Meara be him in a narc? Except that the people of hellfire already had been taken to hellfire. Welcome to Alibaba not on a stood at the door of hellfire and I found that most of the people who had come gone inside were women. And we explained this hadith before, but this particular generation adds something that is important really. So
he sets a lot he was pseudonym so let's focus here first on the scene of heaven. So he said when he stood at the door of heaven who are who are the more we're or will be actually the most people there will be in heaven
solfatara Messiah King same thing the poor
and he said was how will JD Mabu soon the rich are being held back?
Regular Anna except that he excludes from that that the people of hellfire
had been taken to hellfire. So the non believers, the people of hellfire are going to hellfire.
And then the believers are divided into two categories, the poor and the rich, the poor, enter heaven.
So at one that point initially they are most of the inhabitants of heaven, or all the inhabitants, so but he says Most, most of the inhabitants of heaven, where are the rich? They're back. They're not in gender yet. Why are they being held back?
Because they have to be asked
Where did you get this from and how you spent it? They? What about the poor when they had no money?
So no burden, right? They were in burdened with it. So they get to enter Jenna first. And he sits a lot you sit them in another Hadith, they'll spend 500 years in Jannah, before the rich enter, right? Half a day, he said half a day.
Right? So that makes one thing and if you really believe in all of this, right, you say, Okay, how many years? Are you going to be rich in this dunya conscious of it, that your rich leave childhood, may be? You may or may not be aware of that. But let's see, what 50 years, 60 years 70 years and then it's gone right? For that 70 years of luxury. And having everything that you want, you gotta have to wait 500 years before you see Jana worry, as somebody who was struggling and serving you on carrying your luggage for you and had nothing will enjoy gender 500 years before you see it. So you see like, it's not really a good bargain to be rich here and have to wait 500 years before you
enter. We're not saying people now what give up all your money? No, we're not saying this. We're telling you that. That is how Allah is going to do it. Because that's justice. The poor suffered.
You see the suffering of the poor? no homes, no food, no clothes, nothing. Right. So why not that they enjoy gender before everybody else? Since we have. You could buy whatever you want. You can wear whatever you want, you could change your phone every year. Right?
But they can. So why not? They enjoy Jana before you do. And plus, of course, you have to answer questions about money. Where did you get it? Was it halal? How did you spend it? Was it Hala? So you have to answer all these questions. So that's justice. Right. Right. Now,
one thing you know, that occurred to me, you know, when when when thinking about this is that
it's also when you ask us, it's all relative based on whether it benefits us or not. That is if you're a poor person, and you hear that hadith, what do you say? See, finally, justice. Finally, I'm not getting it here. But I'll get it there. Why do you see this when you are poor? Because it serves you. And it's just of course, it's just it serves you. Now imagine if you're rich? And you hear this hadith, what do you say the same person? Just take that person just switch and make them rich instead of poor? And they hear this hadith? What does he say? That's not? That's not right. That's not just alright. So what changed? i It's not to his advantage now. So that's how we judge things.
By the way. It's not because they in themselves, they're right and wrong. But whether it benefits me or not, if it benefits you it's what right? Of course, right? If it doesn't benefit you, something's wrong with this one. And you want to take another example, I was thinking about it house prices, if they go up, or they bottom. So if you are looking to buy a house and the highest prices go up, what do you say?
Suffer Allah, what's happening? You know, what's happened to this? Dunya? I'm so bad, so bad. But if you're selling
good, what an incredible opportunity I should sell. You could be the same person.
But when the economy turns based on your own benefit, you will say yes, hooray. Or I'm the most unfortunate person. So again, it's just about benefit, not about right and wrong, but about benefit, unless it's someone who had banished to the liberate himself from his own selfishness and he looks at people and looks at right and wrong, independent of how it benefits me, that person can judge, right? But a person who is a prisoner of his own benefit can see right from wrong, he can see his own advantage. So that's the thing right here. Okay, now, you don't have an adequate formula for him. And he says, well, and I stood at the door of hellfire, and I found that most of the who had
entered it are women.
Now we explained we talked about this in another
session. But let's add to it here that In another Hadith the prophets Allah sent them in answering the question, why is it that most of the inhabitants of hellfire were woman, he sits a little low audio seldom took third and Ilana with that formula. She said, You curse a lot. And you deny the rights of the husband, by you. So these are major sins. Cursing a LAN is a major sin, doing it a lot is a major sin, and then denying the favors or the rights of the husband not listening to him, right? That is a major sin as well. Though, if a woman does this,
and she enters Hellfire because of it, does she stay there forever?
No. So she has to exit if she's a believer, and she enters heaven. So the Prophet saw you send them here when he's talking about that most of the inhabitants of hellfire are women. And most of the inhabitants of Jannah are the poor. He's talking about that initial stage.
That could be the first 500 years could be the first 1000 years Allah Adam, we don't know. But that initial stage is true.
But then the rich will finish their questioning, and they'll antigen, right? So it won't be that most of the people will be poor. There'll be a mix of the poor and the rich. And all the women who are believers, Muslims who have been punished in Hellfire for their sins, and now they've been purified, they will exit and they will enter Jannah so they say that then most of the inhabitants of heaven will be what? Woman?
Right? Most of the inhabitants of heaven will be woman. Right? Right. So it's a it's a good thing to know, in case there's a sister that finds this difficult.
Or a brother it may be who finds this difficult, right? And we say here, right? When you encounter
something in the Quran or something in the Sunnah, sunnah that stomps you and then you and frustrates you. It's important, first of all right? That if it is authentic, to accept and surrender to it, not to fight with it.
Because if you fight with something like this, that if you hear Allah telling you something, you're going to fight with him.
Then to what purpose? You know, who are you fighting with, you're not going to win. But you're not going to change the fact to Allah don't want it to be so it's going to be so who are you fighting with. And if you hear Mohamed Salah is and I'm telling you something, you're gonna fight with him, know that what's what's your obligation, then, if it's authentic, and this is authentic, it's an arbitrary, right? It's not disputed, then you have to accept it. Surrender, submit to it. And when you submit to it, ask Allah for guidance and ask Allah for understanding, Allah will guide you to understanding that will comfort your heart, and it is not going to be problematic. But if you resist
it, it will always be
a discomfort in your heart. Something that he can understand. And if it grows big enough, it'd be hard to maintain faith at the same time. And as because of that initial rejection. No, I don't want this where as you're supposed to see some no Altana we're here and we will be not become rebellious like the shaytaan and say, I'm not going to do it. I know better.
That's satanic. And it grows.
That that friction or that suspicion in the heart, when you see I know better.
As you can see that Allah knows better. And if Allah decreed this, any, that explanation is great. But even if you did not have that explanation with you, he said, Allah knows better than I don't know, not going to fight with Allah as the one who's the creator of everything he decides. And they follow and if I don't understand it, now I ask Allah to grant me an understanding. And if you don't understand it in the dunya, you'll understand it in the axial, when you see it, delay that understanding, till you meet Allah azza wa jal and then ask him ask Allah why is this this way and not that way? If you already don't see the answer in front of your eyes,
but don't reject and resist law as
845 double Charla, let's see if we have questions and I think we will just stop here today.
Questions, comments, anything inshallah you would want to
add, contribute, give you a couple of minutes in Sharla to think of anything.
Let me scan room we have anything here on the side.
I just ate 45, right?
No one nothing here yeah
now um, so we said that the messenger SallAllahu Sallam here in one of these Hadith in this chapter, actually, he says that you will be presented with your place in Jannah or Hellfire in the grave two times a day, we'll do it and why she early in the morning and in the afternoon. So if a person is destined to go to Jannah, and that he will know by, you know, being giving that good news, seeing good good deeds, and then a portal between him. connection between him and Jenna will be open, and he will be shown this is going to be your house in Jannah. So he sees it twice a day, the opposite May Allah save us if a person is going to go to hellfire, it will be said this is your house in
hellfire. And it will be shown that twice a day. So yes, that's why some of the other might have said this is why maybe he knows his house in general, because he had seen it so many times.
Now, um, that's a good question. It says, Okay, if you've seen
your place in Jannah, and you're upset, you've seen your place in hellfire. And then the day of judgment comes. And you have to go through that questioning, did you forget where you're going to go? That's why you're afraid that's likely what's going to happen? Likely because you transition from an existence in the grave, and there is this blow of the horn, and people go unconscious, okay. And then they rise, they wake up and they're in their bodies again. So you've transitioned from that type of existence into another existence. And in that existence, you will not know exactly where you be going to go be going. And that's why you will be terrified. Whether you'd be going here whether
you'll be going there. So yeah, that's a question that's the likely thing will low alum, likely based on what we read, not likely because it's explicitly stated, but based on what we read, because people do not know and seem that they do not know, whereas before they knew, so it seems like they forgot or maybe the
kind of the momentous that momentous day makes you forget, like the incredible things that they see just makes you forget where you're gonna go, you're not sure anymore. That's a possibility to allow an
Is that so the brothers question is about those who will enter Jannah without any questioning? And what about the sins that they've committed to other human beings with other human beings the rights that they owed to other human beings? There's Allah azza wa jal forgive that. Now, this doesn't tell us, it doesn't explicitly state anything about that. But what is likely well, Allahu Allah, Allahu Ana is that Allah azza wa jal takes care of that. Either. We can say either, that they've saved themselves to care of it before their death. So they asked this person for forgiveness, and they repaid so and so say they took care of all of it, or let's say most of it, or that Allah azza wa jal
compensates the afflicted or the one who's injured the victim, from him, subhana wa, to Allah, so they don't have to be questioned. And they don't owe anybody because of their righteousness. So because of the righteousness, Allah takes care of it, so they don't even have to stop and give anything to anybody else. You just enter directly, and if some, they owe something to somebody, Allah's just satisfies this person and that person from His favors alone. And again, this is not something that is stated explicitly, but we speculate and we understand it based on kind of what we read here in there, online. Zack, it's a good question. Yes.
Oh, you have oh, you have a written question? Not for the lesbian
No, um, so if a person intentionally kills another believer, right, so, the question is, does he eventually after being punished in Hellfire for his crime? Does he depart hellfire and go to heaven or does he stay there?
Forever? We say no, it's a major sin is a very, very serious major
And for that a person deserves to stay in Hellfire for a long time. Even with Allah as the data says about it highly than 150 that means that a very long time, but from other Hadith and from other evidence we understand that every believer as you said, Who says La ilaha illallah It's haram Jin Hellfire is haram for him haram either to touch him at all or haram for him to be there forever. So eventually he has to leave. So once he is punished enough, he will get to leave hellfire.
So how do you increase your sincerity to Allah azza wa jal meaning your floss How do you become more sincere?
It's a great question of course and whenever you want something from Allah azza wa jal what what should you do? The first thing
you ask Allah for right before we say do this and do that right? ask Allah for it. So if you want to have more kosher and Salah you have been more sincere in your dealings with Allah azza wa jal, you want to have good manners before you do anything. Keep asking Allah for it because effort is effort and effort is great. But you before that, you want to proceed it with relying on Allah azza wa jal enough and knowing that the keys of change are with Allah azza wa jal. So, sincerity first of all, ask Allah azza wa jal for it. Second of all, understand that this is a lifelong project. Right? That this will take us the rest of our lives if loss is never something that you're going to do and say
check, I'm done with it. If loss continues, with every salah, you struggle every day with it with every day that you fast. So understand that it's a struggle, and there will be wins and losses. So it's fine. But you have to strive, and if you keep striving, Allah will guide you. If keep pushing Allah will give that to you, but in Allah azza wa jal another also to remember that an action is only valid, if there is a loss in it. If you combine others with Allah as in your act, it becomes invalid. So imagine yourself standing in Salah
being thirsty and hungry because of fasting, giving sadaqa meaning your money leaving your pocket. And because you're doing it for somebody else, there is no reward in it. And you don't find it with Allah as of today, that is the greatest loss because you lost it in the dunya. time, effort, health money, you lost it in the dunya, but didn't get anything for it in the afternoon. And that no one around you is worth that time and effort.
No human being, because on the Day of Judgment, like Okay, so what's the maximum you get from somebody when you they see you praying? Well, what do you get from? They like you, they praise you? What do you do with that?
So if you're in trouble in the dunya, you can go to that person and you say, You know what? You remember that day when you saw me praying so well, I need a couple of $1,000 to borrow from you. They're gonna give that to you because they just liked how you pray. And more than that, on the Day of Judgment, you're going to you can go back to them and retrieve some of the things you invested and you say, Now help me.
Allah, Allah said, they will say you prayed for so and so go and get it from him. So don't waste your life. So one one good thing insha Allah that you can do to increase your sincerity is to have what they call hidden deeds,
hidden the private acts of obedience, when where you read the Quran, and no one sees you, except you and Allah azza wa jal pray, we only you and Allah, give sadaqa only you and Allah don't be the kind of
worshiper who only worships in public. When he has to was he's embarrassed when he's pushed to, but rather designate times designated the better What are you doing it alone and only for Allah zodion The more that you do have that the more that you actually will start feeling it and doing it for the sake of Allah azza wa jal and finally we say Insha Allah, maintain a daily portion of the Quran. Maintain a daily portion of the Quran because if there's something that's going to fix your life, it's nothing better than the book of Allah says. So we ask Allah azza wa jal Robert Alameen you know to help us and follow the follow this and follow what pleases Him and stay away from what displeases
Him unaware to Allah Subhana Allah obey him the good shadow Elijah elantas To where they could handle
