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

Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah he rather early he was so happy he was salam Allahumma eliminare myInfo now and finally my lamp dinner was in iluminado Bella Alameen

00:00:12--> 00:00:17

Aloha My nana Kritika or Shoukry cohosts neighboured Attic and my bad

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

so it Hamdulillah we continue with the series of a hadith that have been claimed Rahim Allah had collected to serve a particular purpose, which is to highlight the gravity of sin.

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

The pitfalls that a person falls into,

00:00:46--> 00:01:27

without even possibility of recovery. Unless repentance is there. When they commit a sin, so ignore claim. As we mentioned last time, he wanted to treat that deception of the shaytaan where it's fine if you sin, Allah is Most forgiving. So he wanted to show you from the Sharia itself from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam himself that know if you do this, you will encounter that if you do this, you'll encounter that so that you'll understand that all of these things are serious offenses. And it's Allah azza wa jal was telling us that they are serious offenses. So if you

00:01:28--> 00:01:41

exempt yourself from all of that, you'd be deceiving yourself thinking that no, none of that is serious. But Allah is telling you, each one of these is serious enough that it could Doom a person.

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

So we continue with these ahaadeeth

00:01:46--> 00:02:12

and the one that we begin with tonight, or today depending on where you are in sha Allah, He said earlier he Salatu was Salam and tada MFI enough see how we did a few machete he lucky Allah to Allah Allahu wa Lee here are the burn. This is the one who is arrogant to Allah fie Neff see here meaning he in himself feels that he is big and great. That's arrogance.

00:02:13--> 00:02:24

We've done a few machete or his struts when he's walking. He's proud and arrogant. When he is walking, he says he will meet Allah zoldan while Allah will be angry with him.

00:02:25--> 00:02:55

So it is a cause of Allah's Anger, to have that feeling or to walk that way and that walk is based on that feeling that conviction that I am great. So Kib if a person meets Allah subhanho wa Taala with cable whether it's in himself, or how he behaves in relation to people, he says he will meet Allah who will him while he will be angry with him in he incurs Allah's Anger.

00:02:56--> 00:03:01

So that Kib if you can understand it, that is a very common sin.

00:03:02--> 00:03:35

Right Kib that I'm better than so and so I'm more intelligent, I'm smarter, I'm richer and more handsome and more beautiful and more successful that kebab is a very common sin. So how can a person deemed himself saved? With the understanding that this is a common sin and that add it brings Allah's Anger? So that should terrify a person, enough to inspect himself constantly and say, am I being arrogant? And am I being proud?

00:03:36--> 00:04:01

Am I being arrogant in what I've said in how I behaved and how you reacted in how I received advice and how I rejected advice, and how I've heard the words of ALLAH being recited and rejected them, or a hadith being given to me and I rejected it or an advice and I ignored it. So it constantly inspect himself otherwise if you don't, you could be guilty of that without even knowing it.

00:04:03--> 00:04:06

Without even knowing it without noticing.

00:04:08--> 00:04:18

The following hadith is where the prophets Allah Allah wa sallam said in an Musawi, Rena you add the Buena yo multi Yamato, you're called Hula, hula, hula HELOC to him. He says

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

image makers picture takers or picture makers rather.

00:04:24--> 00:04:30

They will be punished on the day of judgment and it will be set to them. Revive what you've created.

00:04:32--> 00:04:47

Revive that of course what they've created is what they fashioned. Because no one has the ability to create meaning bring life into soul health here could mean fashion even in the Quran. Hulk could mean to fashion to shape.

00:04:48--> 00:04:54

So they will be punished. He said that he is Salatu was Salam which tells you that this is what a minor or a major sin.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

Major sin that's why it brings Allah's punishment.

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

and it will be set to them what bring life inject life in what you have fashioned In another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said that Allah will say and who is more unjust or more wrongful than one who tries to fashion as I fashioned?

00:05:19--> 00:05:24

Right? Meaning he is parallel if they're not in parallel or replicating,

00:05:26--> 00:05:41

the creation of Allah has zoldan. So he says, Who is more unjust than that? And you understand maybe, or maybe we don't understand that that tricked or strong prohibition against image making

00:05:42--> 00:05:50

is in part, because it blocks the pathway to schicke and Allah Zuta.

00:05:51--> 00:06:07

To *can, Allah azza wa jal to de fIying another or adopting them as rivals with Allah azza wa jal, and if you just think about it today, if humanity agrees that they will stop creating images and pictures, right.

00:06:08--> 00:06:29

A lot of the sugar that you find in the world today will disappear. Not all of it, but a lot of it, because it all depends where a lot of it depends on images, venerating images and venerating what statues. So, imagine the belief systems today that depend on that to perpetuate that belief. If you take all of that out.

00:06:31--> 00:06:51

A lot of the shift will go away. So you understand why Allah azza wa jal is strongly condemning those who will create images, especially those for worship sake, or that can lead to a religious veneration, and deification that is more and more prohibited.

00:06:54--> 00:07:06

The following hadith is when is where the Prophet sallahu wa salam said, it says when one of you dies, already the alley him Mikado who will hurt you Well, I see his place

00:07:07--> 00:07:07


00:07:09--> 00:07:16

meaning Jannah or Hellfire will be shown to him in the morning, and in the afternoon.

00:07:17--> 00:08:01

Each morning and each afternoon each day he'll be shown his place in heaven or in hell says in Canada mean Allah Jannetty Femina Hello Jana if he is from the people of Paradise, he will be shown his space in paradise of the Pyrenees from a people of hellfire, he will be shown his space in hellfire, and it will be said Heather McHale Dukkha it will be said this is your home, this is your abode. This is the place where you will settle hackday of Africa Allahu yarmulke, Yama to which Allah will resurrect you on the Day of Judgment that will be sent. This is where you're going. This is where you're going. And that happens every day and happens every day. How many times twice? So

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

why does it happen for the people of Ghana?

00:08:04--> 00:08:24

That that's part of the bounty of Allah azza wa jal to show them this is where you will be this is where you will be. So they cannot wait until the day of judgment comes and they are resurrected and the intergender to enjoy all of those bounties of Allah azza wa jal. And conversely, why is this shown to the people of hellfire

00:08:25--> 00:08:49

that's an additional punishment to the punishment that they are receiving, because if they know that that's where they will end up, eventually, they will only increase in sadness and distress. So that's why this is happening. presented and shown to them every single day. And with email Aidan right. That also is reported from the Prophet sallahu wa salam.

00:08:52--> 00:09:00

In both Bukhari and Muslim he says when the people of Ghana end up in Jannah, and the people of hellfire they end up in hellfire death will be brought

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

had to cover by an agenda Tijuana until death and death here is persona fight.

00:09:09--> 00:09:15

We'll take a shape at that time and will be put between heaven and hell.

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

And then it will be killed.

00:09:20--> 00:09:54

It will be killed ended and then a caller will say oh people have Jana eternity and no death and oh people of fire or eternity, no death. So the people of Jannah will increase in happiness and the people of hellfire will increase in sadness in addition to the sadness that they have felt, because this is doing what for the people of heaven, that security and peace that they will not come a time where you will die or leave this place. Is is it and for the people of hellfire This is what loss of hope.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

There is no death. Right there is no death so this is lost.

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

of hope. So that is an additional pain because you could tolerate any pain. And I want you to think about this. Not is it worth it to be in hellfire in a position where a person could be witnessing something like this, for the sake of what, for the sake of money for the sake of power for the sake of what, where there is no possibility of death and there is no possibility of exit and there's just perpetual punishment, one day after the other one year after the other, is it worth it then. So this is what IGNOU KVM is trying to do, basically, through that hadith to scare all of us into knowing that no sin is really consequential.

00:10:42--> 00:10:56

And you may see the consequence of that sin, you may feel it, you may be punished because of it. So believe in these things as if you actually are experiencing or you could see someone who's experiencing them. This is the level of belief that you should have.

00:10:58--> 00:11:13

And if someone says, you know, and that's a question that we received, if someone said, well what happens if a person hears all of this and that in yet they are not moved? What happens is they pray to Allah azza wa jal that Allah would move your heart.

00:11:15--> 00:11:23

Because there is something here that is standing between you and a reaction between you and your feelings.

00:11:24--> 00:12:00

So what is that thing, it could be a block of sins, and it could be a hardened heart or maybe a lack of belief, but there is something there. So you want to ask Allah He or Bill Alameen allow me to feel what I'm supposed to feel when reading these Hadith, whether it is you're making this dua for yourself or you're making this dua for another but allow me to actually be afraid when I'm hearing these Hadith to react to them properly not to simply feel that no, this is going to happen to somebody else, but not to me none unless you believe that this is you who may be or who we may be talking about that that will move you

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


00:12:04--> 00:12:26

The following hadith is weak. So we will not bother with it. But that hadith that says that whoever buys a thought a garment with 10, Durham's even if there is a dyrham in it, that is haram, Allah will not accept his Salah as long as he is wearing it. So that is a weak Hadith. Okay, so we're not gonna bother with that inshallah. The following is

00:12:27--> 00:12:35

an authentic one, and it's about alcohol. And you want to see here, how serious drinking alcohol is.

00:12:37--> 00:12:52

The next time well, you know, you hear about someone who's drinking or you pass by the island, they have alcohol that they're selling or you're around people and they are drinking alcohol and you're tempted to see oh, maybe so see in this and the following Hadith.

00:12:53--> 00:13:03

What the consequence of alcohol is he says it's a lot he was in them. Metallica, sala de su Quran, Murata and Wahida forgetting the mannequin at Lahore duniya wama Allah here for Saliba.

00:13:04--> 00:13:14

He says if someone misses Salah because he's drunk, one Salah it is like he had this entire world and he lost it.

00:13:15--> 00:13:17

That's just what how many Salah has

00:13:18--> 00:13:27

one Salah because he is drunk. So you are drunk and you miss one salah and the likelihood that if you're drinking, you will be drunk enough to miss not only one

00:13:29--> 00:13:37

but many. But these are the prophets always missing if you miss one, what is this like? He says as if you have owned all this duniya

00:13:38--> 00:14:02

so take any rich person today. The richest who has billions of dollars, imagine he has these billions of dollars. Then in a blink of an eye he wakes up the next day and he lost all those billions and now he is penniless. You imagine the extent of the loss and how it he would be feeling he says it's more than that for losing one Salah

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

because money is money can come and go

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

but losing one Salah puts such a distance between you and Allah as origin it's as if what? You've lost everything. So if you've lost everything because of that evil, how could you get it back?

00:14:20--> 00:15:00

So that is a thing that we should know because we can we easily miss the salah. Not even because we're drunk right? We easily miss the Salah and we feel as if you've lost nothing but if you lose $10 It will keep you up at night. How did I lose $10 or 50 or 100 but our scale should be what the Salah is more important than money and more important than $100 I could lose 100 But don't lose your Salah. That's the standard you need to push yourself and readjust mentally so that you would never lose the Salah and if you lose the salah. You think to yourself I really lost something tremendous

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

Today, the day was a loss. Today was a terrible day. Why? I lost a salah I missed the Salah, how could I do this? Today was a terrible day. So you repent from it and you ask Allah for forgiveness, you don't consider it a success. If you got fired, that would not be a favorite day of yours. In the same way that reaction is. I lost the Aleister Salah. So if you push yourself to feel like that, you will start feeling it. And if you push yourself to respect Salah like that, you will start respecting it and keep asking Allah azza wa jal for it.

00:15:39--> 00:16:21

And the continues la Salatu was Salam. And he says, and the one who leaves the Sudan because he's drunk forever because he's drunk four times. Allah azza wa jal has made it incumbent upon himself meaning he must do this Allah had made it necessary for him to give him or have him drink from the mud of madness. That's what cleaners will hobble. They said, Oh, what is cleaners will Caballo prophet of Allah he says that's the discharge of the people of hellfire. What comes out of them, when they're being punished, whatever melts, melts off, oozes off their bodies, all gets collected, and it runs and that is taken, and they get to drink that if a person drinks alcohol, and they

00:16:21--> 00:16:27

missed that salah. And we've talked about this before, right? We've talked about this last time.

00:16:28--> 00:16:35

The following hadith is also about that he said that a Salatu was Salam. He says the one who drinks alcohol one time,

00:16:36--> 00:16:39

Allah who will not accept his Salah 40 days.

00:16:41--> 00:17:04

But if he repents Allah will accept his repentance. If he comes back, Allah will not accept his Salah for 40 days, and if he accept but but here if you repents, Allah will accept his repentance. Then the Sahaba says, I do not know I don't remember whether he said this about the third time or the fourth time, if he comes back to it, Allah who must have him drink from that mud of madness on the Day of Judgment.

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

So, if a person drinks

00:17:10--> 00:17:24

alcohol once, tries it once, how many days does he have his Salah not accepted 4040 Now how could he stop this? If he repents?

00:17:26--> 00:17:48

If he repents he say Allah I regret this. I'm not going back to this. Then Allah azza wa jal accepts his repentance, then he doesn't have to wait that period of 40 days for his Salah not to be accepted. And what is it need for his Salah for his Salah not to be accepted? Does it mean that he doesn't have to pray? No, he has to pray.

00:17:49--> 00:17:50

But he gets no

00:17:51--> 00:17:54

reward for it. Yes, no edger for it.

00:17:55--> 00:18:13

But he has to fulfill the obligation because if he doesn't pray, he gets the sin. So when you pray you do two things right? fulfill the obligation you are rewarded here and prophets already Selim is saying that he drinks and he doesn't repent, he still has to pray. But for 40 days, he doesn't get the reward of his salah.

00:18:14--> 00:18:36

But if he repents, that's fine. That gets cancelled. If he comes back again. Then the same punishment comes back again the same punishment at the fourth of the third or the fourth one. He said somebody was telling him that if he comes back to it at the third or fourth time that Allah will have him drink from that discharge of the people of hellfire.

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

The following hadith

00:18:43--> 00:19:18

is similar, but there's weakness in it. But it just simply says that the one who dies addicted to alcohol, Allah azza wa jal will have him drink from the discharge of the people of hellfire meaning now he drinks and he is addicted to it. And there is according to this hadith, but I said there's weakness in his there's a river that runs from the discharge of the people of hellfire, specifically here says that from the private parts of the people of hellfire that is so disgusting that the people of hellfire themselves find it offensive. So he says they drink from that.

00:19:20--> 00:19:43

So imagine, see the pleasure that you are promised, counterbalance this with that torment, that is beyond description, because whatever is going to be seen in gender or in Jahannam is beyond human experience or description. So just imagine is it worth it or not when you're drinking this, that that's the thing that you'll enter your body forcefully?

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

In Jahannam if a person does that, if that sinks in, if we know this, if we believe it, alcohol will not be appealing ever. Right? You'll take it and you will feel it's poison. And I'm just ingesting poison into my body. And it's like really the

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

Literally poison.

00:20:04--> 00:20:06

The Prophet then there is a

00:20:08--> 00:20:12

following Hadith and it's actually authentic as a statement for economists.

00:20:14--> 00:20:56

Or or the Allahu Anhu. Here it's recorded as a hadith, but it's actually authentic as a statement from numerous or the Allahu Anhu. Where he said, You ought to do nasty yo multimethod he says that we will will be shown or presented to Allah azza wa jal three times, he says two of them God, I don't want my ID or arguments and excuses. And the third one at that is the time when the records will fly into people's hands, people have some will take it in the right and some will take it in the left. So according to have numerous oh the Allahu Anhu meaning these presentations, these discussions and meetings with Allah azza wa jal are a total of three, the first and the second, you

00:20:56--> 00:21:16

will be asked and you will reply, and you will be asked and you will reply. The third one is when everybody will be handed their record and their book, it flies, and it falls into your right or it falls into your head or you will be handed this into your right, or you will be handed this into your left. But this asserts what that

00:21:18--> 00:21:26

questioning by Allah xojo of what happened and why you did it, et cetera, et cetera. And we will see soon an example of that.

00:21:28--> 00:21:32

The following Hadith and this is an important one to keep in mind.

00:21:34--> 00:21:58

When he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam ala como Mohawk karate luno, for in the Han HTML and gradually, Hector you Ligna he says, Be aware of small belittle sins, because they gather upon someone until they destroy him. These are the small, tiny, tiny little sins. Tiny, why are they tiny? Either because they are tiny in themselves.

00:21:59--> 00:22:24

Minor, hardly anything, you know, to think about or they are tiny, because we decided that they are tiny, but they are not. We decided they are small and insignificant. Here the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He wants to tell us that if you keep looking at them as insignificant, as irrelevant, what are you going to do with them? You're going to get a lot of them.

00:22:26--> 00:22:31

Right? without you noticing that if you don't think that lying is a problem. What will you do?

00:22:33--> 00:23:11

Lie, you keep lying, you keep lying, you keep lying? If you don't think that looking at haram is a problem. What will you keep doing, it could be looking at haram all the time. So if you do a lot of this, and a lot of this, and a lot of that, what happens is that by the end of the day, and week and month and year, and life, you've gathered a lot of that. So he says if they if you collect to all of them like this, they will destroy you. And he brought here a physical example I didn't use Salatu was Salam. He says, this is like the example unlike people who are traveling, and they're camping now in a wilderness, and now it's time to make food. So each one goes and brings a twig and brings a

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

small stick. And they go and collect all of this until they collect a lot and they light a fire and they cook their food.

00:23:20--> 00:23:37

So he gives them here la Salatu was Salam an example of each one of these small things on its own will not be able to cook that food, but you gather all of it, enough of it, it can cook your food. So you gather all of all a lot of it and it will fuel Hellfire under you.

00:23:40--> 00:24:30

So that's why he said Ali is Salatu was Salam, these Maha karate are dangerous. Just think of someone who was taking something toxic, but at a very small dose every single day. He's not swallowing the whole bottle. Because if you swallow the whole bottle, what it will do kills you. But if you take a little bit, that slow poisoning, so if you take a little bit by little bit by little bit, and you'll start seeing that you're worse and worse and worse, until it kills you, this or that. So here beware of those little sins. So, again, that should also alarm you. Why should I think of any small sin as insignificant? Why should I let it pass through and be recorded in my book? No.

00:24:30--> 00:24:32

And if you want to

00:24:33--> 00:24:37

the aid of Allah azza wa jal keep up the saying of a state federal law.

00:24:38--> 00:25:00

Keep up the saying of a stuck federal law a lot. Right? After you talk after you walk after a conversation after you know, a period of time engage in a statute or law and catch yourself doing something wrong and see immediately as for Allah, because this will awaken you to the fact that this is wrong, and I wasn't really

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

be paying much attention to it to see it stuck for Rula often, then the heart will be awakened and the eyes will be awakened

00:25:11--> 00:25:14

the next Hadith This is about

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

a Cyril passing on a Sirat the bridge over Jahannam

00:25:21--> 00:25:26

and he said that he is Salatu was Salam he says you adorable Ji Soo Allah Jahannam

00:25:27--> 00:25:35

says the bridge will be laid on top of hellfire. So how fires underneath and there is a bridge on top of that is a Syrah

00:25:36--> 00:25:40

so for Kunal Oh, Willa may Youjizz I'll be the first person to pass.

00:25:41--> 00:25:44

So this is a quiz, who's the first person to pass a setup?

00:25:46--> 00:25:56

The Prophet sallahu Sinha kala to our Rusu leiomyoma Eden and the supplication of the messengers at that time is Allahumma. Selim, Selim. Yeah Allah Savior Allah save

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


00:26:02--> 00:26:09

Yeah, homophobia in the Allahumma, sell them sell them either for themselves or for everybody that they are witnessing.

00:26:10--> 00:26:16

Okay, because they were seeing their alma pass, and people that they know pass Allahumma silan himself.

00:26:18--> 00:27:02

And then he said that is Salatu was Salam. He said Be he Kela leave there are hooks on the surah Mr. Ashok is Sudan like the thorns of a plant that they know in the desert called a Sudan and it has, its very thorny, so it's these are hooks that have thorns in them. The WHO NASA the family him, it's a ducts or it takes or grabs people in accordance to their deeds. For me, Norman Luba Coby, Amelie among them will be those who will try to pass men among them are those who will be pulled down, then destroyed completely because of his deeds grabbed and destroyed, the Fallen Hellfire will be normal, more courage. And among them, I'll be those who will be cut because of it

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

from my NGO, and then they will survive. And that could mean that they will be cut, they fall to hellfire, and then they survive, or it will cut them. But can they continue to move until they survive the passage.

00:27:17--> 00:27:21

It says, until a time when Allah xojo will fit will settle.

00:27:23--> 00:27:33

His judgment among creation will be finished with that. And he then he wanted to extract and save from hellfire, the ones that he wants to save

00:27:34--> 00:28:20

those who say and testify that Ada Illallah so he asked the angels to save them from hellfire. This is the last of the last. Alright, the last portion of the people will be saved from hellfire for your original home. Yeah. And if we were in a home, the other method is scheduled. So the angels will go and they will save them and they will identify them by the marks that they have from sujood because Allah has ordered had forbidden for Hellfire that it will consume that trace of soot mean it will burn them all. And it says Therefore you have to do an arm for them to Haishu they will take them all and they were fully burned like coal, like a piece of coal that is fully completely black,

00:28:20--> 00:28:24

they're fully burned. But how do they know them

00:28:25--> 00:28:37

from the areas where they used to make the jute which tells you that this is how you get saved by saying that Isla Illallah and you see that's it.

00:28:39--> 00:28:42

How will the angels identify

00:28:43--> 00:28:47

my girl Salah there has to be Salah right?

00:28:48--> 00:28:49

And the salah

00:28:50--> 00:28:54

will save that spot from being burned

00:28:55--> 00:29:26

and you become a mu you are identified as a Muslim. So it tells you that your Salah in the dunya is also your identification as a Muslim. You cannot say I'll just say that I either love him or not so Allah and stop and not do anything including sada what remains of your iman and what you means of the Shahada. If there is no salah, we're not saying that you're not a Muslim, but I'm saying practically what remains. So there has to be a solder

00:29:27--> 00:29:27


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


00:29:30--> 00:29:48

for yourself Ballymena in your home I will hire after they had burned and they had died actually they've died like this, the water of life will be poured on top of them and they will come back to life like a plant coming back on the banks of a river very quickly.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

So that means that they will die and they will come back to life and they will be of the people of Jannah but here burning inside out completely like a piece of coal

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

This then you understand that severity of the punishment of Allah azza wa jal.

00:30:06--> 00:30:12

We told you about the questioning on the Day of Judgment that we will have a hadith that gives us

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

an example of it.

00:30:15--> 00:30:23

And that is about the three this isn't a Muslim about the first three of whom Allah azza wa jal will question and he will judge on the day of judgment.

00:30:24--> 00:30:25

And he said,

00:30:27--> 00:30:59

The first will be a person who was martyred is to shed meaning he apparently died for the sake of Allah azza wa jal. So he says, he will be brought and Allah azza wa jal will have him, admit to all of the favors that he had given to them, did I not give you this and this and this and this, and he'll admit to all of this, then Allah Allah, then Allah will say, What did you do with these blessings? They cannot give you this and that he said, Yes, then what did you do with these blessings? He says, I fought for your sake until I was killed.

00:31:01--> 00:31:18

Then he will say Subhana wa to Allah, He says, You have lied, you're lying. But you have fought so that it will be said his grave and it was said, then it will be as will be commanded and he will be dragged on his face and thrown in hellfire.

00:31:19--> 00:32:01

So this is a person who apparently fought in a battle with Muslims. And he is with Allah as it and saying that I fought for your sake and Allah saying, No, you fought so it would be said, You're brave. You wanted people's praise, you wanted recognition. And it was said, so drag him into hellfire. So he will be dragged into hellfire. And he says the second one he says, What are you doing to Allah Malema? Allahu Akbar Al Quran are a person who had learned knowledge, Islamic knowledge and taught it and he had read the Quran, meaning he is versed in the Quran. So he will be brought and Allah who will question him about all the numbers that he had given to him, did I not

00:32:01--> 00:32:11

give you this and that and he will say, Yes, Allah will ask him what do you do with these numbers? He says, I learned all of this for your sake and taught it and learn the Quran.

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

Because of you,

00:32:15--> 00:32:38

Allah will say you are lying. But you have learned so that will be said he's a scholar, and it was said and you will read the Quran so that it will be said he's a reader or recite or he who knows the Quran and it was said, then it will be dragged on his face to hellfire and thrown into it. So this is a person who is knowledgeable and he teaches and he reaches the Quran. But what's the intention?

00:32:39--> 00:32:49

Not for Allah azza wa jal, but to garner praise and recognition. And he says what I did on was Allahu Allah, he and a man that Allah had given him a lot

00:32:50--> 00:33:11

of money, all types of money, and Allah will bring him and have him admit to all the numbers that he had received and Allah who will tell him what did you do with them and he said, Your Allah, I did not leave a path that you love, but I've spent in that path, and Allah will say you are lying, but you did this so that it will be said, you're generous.

00:33:12--> 00:33:19

You wanted people to see that you ungenerous, they will be dragged on his face to hellfire and thrown in it. So

00:33:20--> 00:33:28

it says in the Hadith, these are the first people to fuel Hellfire on the Day of Judgment, the first

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

and now this should be scary.

00:33:34--> 00:33:38

Right? And how many of us can attain that level?

00:33:40--> 00:34:02

Where a person could fight for the sake of Allah Zojirushi that in that context, and they are killed? How many have that opportunity? Most of us know we don't have it. How many of us have the opportunity to be scholars and educators and they have alien. That they have so much of it that people recognize them as alien, how many?

00:34:04--> 00:34:21

Very small number very small number and then the rest that we have so much money that we can give in every direction for Allah azza wa jal how many of us have been very few. So these are supposedly select few, the best of the best, and all of us are far behind.

00:34:23--> 00:34:28

And even among those, when your intention is that corrupt, it does that to you.

00:34:30--> 00:34:59

You learn not for Allah but for people you give not for Allah for people. And you fight not for Allah for people and it dooms you into hellfire. That is scary, that your intention you could be doing the best of the Best of deeds. That because your intention is bad, it drops you to the lowest of the low. You see the problem here? So don't say I'm reading the Quran I'm fine. Where's the fear of Allah zoton

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

Don't say I'm giving sadaqa I'm fine. Don't say I'm praying and I'm fine. I'm fasting and I'm fine. You say I'm fasting, but I hope that Allah would accept. And I hope that Allah would fix my intention. So it's not for somebody else. So the Muslim is constantly afraid and improving his intention, questioning why he's doing these things and hoping that it's not for somebody else, and asking Allah for forgiveness. So if that's the case, with those who have been enabled to do the very finest of deeds, and yet they fall in so deep down, all of us should be alarmed. With the little that we know a little more that we do and give to Allah as a surgeon. What is my intention? And

00:35:41--> 00:35:55

maybe all the good that I'm thinking that I'm doing? Maybe it's invalid? What if that's the case? What if my intention is bad? So that's the thing that should terrify you don't believe that? I have a lot of good that had been done.

00:35:56--> 00:36:00

That good is not enough. Because maybe a lot of it is not even good.

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


00:36:04--> 00:36:30

And he and he said was I'm here to say fairly snappy multimedia, he says, he says, I've heard from him, no to me or him. Allah said, that as it is that the best of people are the prophets of Allah azza wa jal. The worst of people are those who claim to be prophets of Allah, lie in claimed to be the prophets of Allah. And that is a very good distinction to keep in mind. Like the very best of all people are who

00:36:31--> 00:36:49

the profits that's on the top line, if you want to think about the worst of all people who are they is if someone lies enough, a brazen lie, that they are a prophet of Allah, but it's not true. They've committed the greatest lies that makes them the worst of people. So it's not possible by the way to confuse the two.

00:36:50--> 00:37:01

Right? To tell me that the best and the worst are indistinguishable from each other. It can be you telling me that someone who's honest, is like someone who is a thief.

00:37:02--> 00:37:32

Habitual thief, habitual, gambler, habitual This is that that's his character. And this, this person who follows the straight of Naira and you tell I can't tell who's right and who's wrong, who's better and who's worse is can't be. So this is a good comparison. But why is he saying this? Because it's commenting on the Hadith, he says the best or the prophets in the worst of those who claim that they are but they are not. Then after the Prophets the best are those who are they, the martyrs and the scholars? Right?

00:37:34--> 00:37:42

So he says, those are the best after the prophets and those who pretend to be of them, but are not of them are the worst, because they are hypocrites.

00:37:43--> 00:37:57

They're not doing it for Allah xojo That's why this happens to them. You may not we may not understand or be able to sympathize. Why is it that they are the first to be judged and thrown in hellfire because their corruption is great.

00:37:58--> 00:38:12

The corruption of those who learn and teach but not for Allah. Spend but not for Allah and fight but not for Allah. Their corruption is great. That's why they are the first to be judged and condemned.

00:38:14--> 00:38:19

And they become the worst because the they imitate the righteous but they are not righteous.

00:38:21--> 00:38:31

Another Hadith from the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He said that men cannot in the Holy See him of limitation if you have wronged your brother, female you know,

00:38:33--> 00:38:58

when it came when it comes to his wealth, or it comes to his honor, if you had wronged him, let him come to Him and ask Him to forgive him before it will be taken from him on a day when there is no dinar and Dirham, but if he has good deeds, it will be taken from his good deeds and will be given to his brother and if or if not, it will be taken from his brother's sins and will be thrown out on him and he will be thrown in hellfire.

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

So men cannot in the holy Mahima dilemma meaning if you have done something to wrong another

00:39:06--> 00:39:09

is what is the Prophet saying that you should do?

00:39:10--> 00:39:18

Go to him and ask for forgiveness. Phil yester Hilda Herman, who meaning make it Hello?

00:39:19--> 00:39:29

Can you forgive me? Right make it Hello? Or if he's not willing just to forgive you based on an apology. You say what can I do to make this right?

00:39:31--> 00:39:38

A public apology? Right? A service something money, right something

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

to make it what to make us even make it Helen

00:39:44--> 00:39:49

is this why is he saying he says it because it's easier than now than done later.

00:39:50--> 00:40:00

And by the way, it's difficult to do now because he used to say to someone go and apologize and not only apologize, ask for forgiveness and if this and forgive you offer something that's not easy to do.

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

But the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is saying it is much easier now, than later because now you can afford the money, you can give that money and you can earn extra right? Suppose he wanted 1000 From you suppose, give 1000 then earn 1000 On the Day of Judgment right there is nothing no dinar and no Durham no currency except set good and bad deeds. So, he will take your good deeds, or you will take his bad deeds, if you have none if you run out, but these are irreplaceable. You can go back and say let me work a little bit so that I can compensate No.

00:40:40--> 00:40:43

So that's what you saying Allah is Salatu was Salam also

00:40:45--> 00:40:49

consider offending people a serious offense,

00:40:50--> 00:41:08

taking their rights, whether it's property, money, things that does not do not belong to you, or you're attacking their honor, their reputation. These are their rights. So if you do you owe them something so they give them something so that they would forgive you

00:41:09--> 00:41:18

and connect it to it. He says the shipper Amina a lot of the biryani Hector, he puts up here Malkia Mattila survey or Denise's if you take a piece of land.

00:41:20--> 00:41:45

Okay unrightfully as big as a handstand ship just to hansman. If you just take that unrightfully he says on the Day of Judgment, you will sink deep to the seventh Earth, meaning a person on the day of judgment that is just on the Day of Judgment will keep sinking down and down and down and down. And as you sink what the earth gets tighter and tighter.

00:41:46--> 00:41:56

So you'll keep sinking and sinking and sinking to the seventh earth he said ally is Salatu was Salam for taking one span of land and rightfully so those who own land.

00:41:57--> 00:42:38

Those who have lands for those who have disputes and land between them and their relatives, you have to be very careful not to overstep and take something that is not yours unrightfully deliberately, because then they'll have to pay for it rather, it's easier to give it up rather than claim it as yours if it's not really yours. And as this applies your for people it applies for nations as well. Planes for people who steal land that is not theirs. That is same thing that applies to them. This is ours and Allah azza wa jal saying, the thing that you prized and loved so much, that is the thing that will be the cause of your torment, you want this land, that land will swallow you.

00:42:40--> 00:43:01

It will swallow you. So Subhanallah the thing that we run after becomes the tool for our punishment and torment. Right? Not only in the AFF era, but in the dunya as well. If you think about it, think about anything that you run after that is not yours that is haram. It turns into a source of torment for all of us.

00:43:06--> 00:43:09

The Prophet alayhi salatu salam said also

00:43:10--> 00:43:35

called an outcome had he lied to you or demean her. You could you could do to Adam to Solomon subpoena Jews and Minetti Jahannam he says this fire on earth that you use to fuel things right and cook things it's 170 F of the fire on the day of judgment the fire of Johanna meaning one over 71 portion out of 70

00:43:36--> 00:44:06

So they said O Messenger of Allah it would have been sufficient I mean if the how fire the fire in hellfire was exactly like this one, it would have been sufficient to consume bodies and punish he said for in the hopper today that Allah habit is out in what is business at university in a juicer is no he said no, it is more intense in hellfire by 69 times each portion of that is equivalent to the heat of hellfire of hate of fire in the world.

00:44:07--> 00:44:31

So, how hot is the fire in Hell is a state of the fire that we have today and multiply that by 70 that is how hard it is and destructive it is. And they are right in saying even if it were just left to be just that 170 If you understand how hard it is nothing can withstand it it consumed bodies. Right turns the you know

00:44:33--> 00:44:43

the bones turn into charcoal and call if they spend all their enough time in this fire is no it's more intense than that.

00:44:44--> 00:44:56

So that is again and should be very terrifying. Because that is an amount of punishment that no human being has experienced.

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

The following Hadith

00:45:03--> 00:45:10

and it's an one that requires a little bit of explanation. So let's let me just read it first or translate it

00:45:11--> 00:45:13

and then we'll explain it in sha Allah.

00:45:15--> 00:45:34

So he said la Salatu was Salam ma ad said that the messenger Allah is Salatu was Salam gave me the following advice or entrusted me with the following. He says letter Shrek Billahi che do not associate or take partners with Allah azza wa jal even if you are killed or burned

00:45:35--> 00:45:40

and do not disobey your parents, even if they ask you to leave your wealth and family

00:45:41--> 00:45:44

and do not leave a

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

a single obligatory prayer intentionally because the one who abandons that has lost Allah's protection

00:45:55--> 00:46:08

and do not drink alcohol, because it is the cause of all evil, all sin. And beware of disobeying Allah, or disobedience because disobedience brings the anger of Allah.

00:46:10--> 00:46:28

So this is a set of advice that he entrusted more of Radi Allahu Anhu with and listen to stand them. He says lead to Shrek Billahi che don't take partners with Allah don't commit *can Allah, even if you're to be killed or burned.

00:46:29--> 00:46:34

And what that means well Allahu Allah is that either even under the threat of

00:46:36--> 00:46:43

such a punishment do not willingly meaning do not embrace disbelief, you are allowed

00:46:44--> 00:46:57

to pretend? Right? You are allowed to claim under duress under compulsion to say that you disbelieved if you cannot withstand the threats and the pressure.

00:46:59--> 00:47:03

So, if somebody compels another, a disbelieving

00:47:04--> 00:47:20

person wants to compel a Muslim to either say, a statement of disbelief or perform an act of disbelief even the performance of act of disbelief like prostrating to an idol, under the threat of killing them.

00:47:21--> 00:47:23

What are what are his options?

00:47:25--> 00:47:29

He says you can comply or you can define.

00:47:30--> 00:48:15

You can defy him and say no no matter. You can kill me if you want. I will never associate partners with Allah azza wa jal and they can kill you. And if that happens, you become a Shaheed and have the two that is the better of the two options. With exceptions. That is the better of the two options. They call it a global Azima. Right you follow the original command of Allah Zoda not the exemption but the original command, meaning no, kill me if you want, I will not either do or say something to upset Allah azza wa jal and they kill you that becomes a Shahada. Or, if there is too much pressure, you feel for yourself, and you want to take that exemption that allows from Allah azza wa jal, then

00:48:15--> 00:48:42

you can speak the word of disbelief or do an act of disbelief to save yourself, and you are free of sin because that is compulsion. You're not responsible for it. Okay. Now, we said in the first one, it said, It is better to subject yourself to death rather than disband, pronouncing disbelief, he says, with minor exceptions, what are these minor exceptions, that is if you deem that your continued life is better than your death.

00:48:45--> 00:49:00

If you deem that your continued life is better than your death. So for instance, a person is a scholar, let's say, and his continued life is better than his death, because he can continue to teach people and guide them. We tell them, Don't kill yourself,

00:49:01--> 00:49:44

say whatever they want to say, and then live another day and teach a lot more people, or someone who's responsible for orphans or a family and he thinks and believes, without me this and this will happen to them, they will be abandoned, they will be alone. So his life is better than his death. So if they deem that then it's better for them to do what to comply rather than define. Right? But these are the two options. So what is he saying it is Salatu was Salam here, he either means that the original command, meaning as much as you can, don't do it, but you have an exemption you have an allowance, if you wish, but as much as you can, do not disbelieve in Allah as Odin even if they want

00:49:44--> 00:49:57

to kill you or burn you hold on to the truth. And that is best or he may mean at a Salatu was Salam by that is that don't make that change your heart on the inside. Okay.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

Is that clear?

00:50:00--> 00:50:10

because it's not problematic and understanding okay? That Okay second one also, do not disobey your parents even if they ask you to leave your money and your family.

00:50:11--> 00:50:40

So again, this is for emphasis. It's not to be understood that whatever your parents tell you need to be followed, even if they tell you what, divorce your wife, leave your husband. Why? Just because I don't like them just divorce or leave all your money. Give me all your money or give away all your money. And you say, well the Hadith says this citation source to do it is you know, this hadith is

00:50:41--> 00:51:25

a bit broad or phrase this way to indicate emphasis, meaning you know, how you say to a man who's about to go to battle. Men don't flee from the battlefield. You're not telling him you know, kill yourself no matter what. What do you what are you saying? Emphasis right fight. But you want to understand you know, tactical maneuvers, tactical withdrawal, right? That no, if you're alone, no, please don't kill yourself, withdraw, and live to fight another day. But what do you mean is what emphasise that's what the prophets Allah loosened him saying Don't disobey them, even if they ask you for this understanding from other a hadith and from other, you know, parts of the Sharia is that

00:51:25--> 00:51:54

no, you don't have to divorce your wife. If your parents ask you, right, especially if they don't have a merit to that request, or if they ask you for something that brings hardship to you, but no benefit to them. So it's not an absolute type of obedience, right? So this is one you need to understand with the prophets, a lot of Usila he is seeing here, but at the same time, at the same time, He's emphasizing the great rights of the parents, okay?

00:51:55--> 00:52:03

And then he said la salatu salam, he says, Don't abandon a single Salah because if you abandon a single salah, you've abandoned Allah's protection.

00:52:05--> 00:52:09

So you should feel with every Salah This is my shield.

00:52:10--> 00:52:44

This is this. This is a good way of thinking about the Salah, you know how you enter into a building, you enter into a tent, and it saves you from the rain and the snow and people's attacks. So when you pray, you're under Allah's protection, that's the shield that Allah draws on top of you, and you are protected and protected from what protected from harm in the dunya and protected definitely from harm in the athey era. So you're not going to be asked on the Day of Judgment, why did you not pray and now you're subject to punishment, no, you protected yourself but in the dunya as well you get to be protected

00:52:46--> 00:52:59

protected from harm that people could bring to you protected from the devil in the shayateen and the jinn you protected from envy protected from magic you protected from everything protected from even your things that are in you

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

that are just simmering.

00:53:03--> 00:53:18

So you have anxiety but you'd not realize really that you have that type of anxiety or you have distress or you have depression or you have but it has it's not really didn't bubbled to the surface yet you know, because you're medicating yourself with Quran and with salah.

00:53:19--> 00:53:32

But if you don't, then you're not under Allah's protection anymore. Right. There's a story of someone and it's it relates to sin more about salah, but it's about the same thing about protection.

00:53:33--> 00:53:34

And he said that

00:53:36--> 00:53:46

he used to commit haram, he's married, but he also used to commit haram for a prolonged time. And then one of those nights is just unvisited, one of those nights at night.

00:53:48--> 00:53:50

He got anxious,

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

just like that he got anxious. And he said I couldn't deal with that anxiety and it's just continued to grow.

00:53:59--> 00:54:34

And now he's as I've reached a level where I cannot leave the house. I can talk to strangers, I can handshake strangers, everybody that I've know, right? I've just simply there's a distance between me and them. I don't know how to overcome this. And so the person who received this complaint has told him okay, this is your condition. And he didn't know about his past what did you used to do before and after, you know some reluctance he told him I used to do this and to use today he said that's the consequence of this. Because you've defied Allah asserted for a very long time. And then one of these things caught up with you.

00:54:36--> 00:54:59

There's some saying that we have things in us and you don't understand it, how it can affect you. So anything right in the middle of the night just can visit you within you and you will not be able to contain it. So the salah puts a cap on all this harm. So you're under Allah's protection. So remember, you're going to skip a Salah what might happen, and he says don't drink alcohol.

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

because it's the cause of old sin rot so Khalifa Heisha.

00:55:05--> 00:55:12

Because when you start drinking, you're gonna be opening the door for all other sins, because you're going to lose

00:55:13--> 00:55:19

your faculty or mind, you're not going to be able to tell right from wrong, something's going to be playing with your head.

00:55:20--> 00:55:30

And beware of sin because indeed sin brings on the anger of Allah xojo Sin brings on the anger of Allah Zoji.

00:55:31--> 00:55:32


00:55:33--> 00:55:40

you don't know which of these sins will bring the anger of Allah azza wa jal, that could be more lasting than another.

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

And every sin by the way, every sin has a price.

00:55:47--> 00:55:59

You gotta pay the price. Unless Unless you rush and you ask Allah zodion for forgiveness and repentance, and you may still have to pay some sort of price. Even even in terms of your mood.

00:56:01--> 00:56:04

Right, or in terms of the friendships that you have

00:56:06--> 00:56:55

on there, in terms of success that you find in your life or impediments instead of it, there's always a something, you bring it in, right? Something else follows it. And it could be something minor, or it could be something big. So gonna play him, he says, and says, and the Hadith, in this issue, are much, much more than what we have mentioned. So someone who is or wants the best for himself should not ignore that, and let himself loose, committing the sins of Allah azza wa jal, and he holds on to the rope of what good thoughts about Allah xojo He shouldn't, because if this is all true, then all of these things here are kind of come true. So you shouldn't simply say I'll just do

00:56:55--> 00:57:23

whatever, and I will be forgiven. And then he caught up to a third no Haley, he says beware of Allah azza wa jal and don't be deluded. He says he had cut a person's hand in three draw him in three Durham's are enough to cut a person's hand and he had legislated or commanded the whipping of someone for drinking the little littlest amount of alcohol and a woman entered Hellfire because of a cat.

00:57:24--> 00:57:43

A woman entered Hellfire because of a cap. And he said, The person who had stolen a cloak from the spoils of war that turned into hellfire or into fire surrounding him, even though he was Shaheed will not put either. Shahida he was martyred in battle

00:57:44--> 00:58:17

than he was he fought in battle he was martyred in battle but because he stole something from the spoils of war, before it was divided, it says that turned into a fire surrounding him that cloak became fire that was burning him and a woman came into hellfire went into hellfire because of a cat. And he says as punishment for the dunya you drink a little bit of alcohol you will be whipped for it if you are found out. You steal a little bit and your hand could be cut because of it. What is he want to show you that yes, there is Mercy of Allah azza wa jal Yes, but aren't these things true as well?

00:58:18--> 00:58:27

Very true. So do you have to expect that someone has to be punished for this? Someone? Why isn't it you and I?

00:58:28--> 00:58:33

Because probably that woman who mistreated that cat did not think that that thing is gonna put her in hellfire.

00:58:34--> 00:58:35

But it did.

00:58:37--> 00:58:57

Without person who stole that cloak did not think that that piece of clothing that is going to cause me pain in my grave, if he knew this, he would never have touched it. So there are things that we are doing that actually could Doom us. That's what you have to believe. Subhanallah it could be me. So when that terrifies you, you will stop.

00:58:58--> 00:59:02

So we need really to deepen our fear of Allah azza wa jal.

00:59:04--> 00:59:10

And then shallow this the last thing that we will mention here so that I can answer a couple of questions in sha Allah.

00:59:12--> 00:59:20

Or maybe answered the question. Let me answer the questions, actually, because I have a couple of questions and then I'll take your questions. I'll leave this till next time.

00:59:21--> 00:59:37

So a couple of questions was was one was online and one way I was asked that last week, and that will give you a time in Charlotte to think of your own questions if you have or if there's anything online. So the first question that was online and I thought it's relevant to talk about it is

00:59:39--> 00:59:40

of course when to ever
