00:00:27 --> 00:00:48

brothers and sisters cutting away from the large introductions that we usually give to these classes only because there's still a lot of material that needs to be covered before before our last session. Next week if Allah gives us life until then, a very quick summary which Surah are we taking the principles of success from

00:00:50 --> 00:00:56

Surah Furqan is number one from the Quran surah number 25 which is are we reading from

00:00:57 --> 00:01:11

6063 63 up until around 7076 How many of the characteristics of the successful people according to Allah have we covered so far?

00:01:12 --> 00:01:15

How many three what was characteristic number one?

00:01:18 --> 00:01:23

It was a description of what was it how they eat, how they talk, how they how they walk.

00:01:25 --> 00:01:40

So brother sister if you have your copy of the most have with you a physical copy or on your phone as an application or on your laptop iPad, please open it now surah 25 surah two four can go to area 63.

00:01:43 --> 00:02:03

We said characteristic number one according to success by our mica himself Are you bad Rukmani a lady and I am Shona rd how now the true servants of Iran here they are here are the characteristics if you haven't started applying these in Ramadan you still have a good healthy 10 or so days ahead of you.

00:02:06 --> 00:02:13

Or I would recommend you live in am Shona and the homeowner, the true servants what other translation could we use for a bad

00:02:15 --> 00:02:39

worshipers remember worshippers? The true servants forward slash worshipers of our rough man are those who walk on the earth with with ease characteristic number one. We have spoken about that characteristic number two, what either thought about homophobia he Luna Kalu Solana when the ignorant people address them, they respond with words of peace.

00:02:40 --> 00:02:43

These are descriptions of their behavior with who

00:02:45 --> 00:02:57

with Allah or with people, these are descriptions of how they behave with people. Now comes a third quality of the truly successful people in terms of their relationship with Allah.

00:02:58 --> 00:03:03

When Medina Joby tuna Do not be him. So Jaden Walker,

00:03:04 --> 00:03:08

and they are those who spend their nights bowing and prostrating to their Lord.

00:03:09 --> 00:03:14

We said that there is a reason perhaps why Allah has introduced these successful people

00:03:15 --> 00:03:33

with respect to how they behave with people, Before describing their behavior with Allah and their worship with Allah, you'd think it should be the other way around. You would think it should be a description of how they behaved with Allah, then how they behave with people because we are second place. What was the secret? Somebody fire out very quickly?

00:03:35 --> 00:03:36

What was the secret?

00:03:37 --> 00:03:38

Is the question clear?

00:03:40 --> 00:03:44

Why did Allah Almighty describe their behavior with people before their behavior with him?

00:03:46 --> 00:03:52

Yeah, no, man, come on. You wasn't here on my role you here? No, you are not here. Okay, anybody else?

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

Double Amara.

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

Now Ilaha illa Allah. Yes, worship

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

as it must be

00:04:09 --> 00:04:49

found in your worship. Good. Excellent, excellent. So according to Allah Almighty. Our religion is not one that makes a separation between church and state, between your dunya and your deen. And that's a conflation, a mistake a lot of people they make they are Muslim in the masjid and Muslim by appearance Muslim in Salah. But when you deal with them with the dinar and Durham pound and the dollar you see a new side to a person you say a monster. So Allah Almighty in reinforcing the message that says that Islam governs your behavior with people that's part of being a Muslim, just as it governs your relationship with Allah I will mention the descriptions of the successful people

00:04:50 --> 00:04:54

in how they interact. Before I give you a description of how they behave with me.

00:04:56 --> 00:04:59

Remember we spoke about this brothers we need this to be two way

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

This is characteristic number three, characteristic number four as you see on the slide.

00:05:07 --> 00:05:17

Allah subhanaw taala now is going to tell us after having told us about how they respond to ignorance, how they walk, the style of walk, and how

00:05:18 --> 00:05:51

they spent their nights bowing and prostrating. Now we're going to hear of a dua that they make. If you want to be a successful person, according to Allah, happy in this world, in your grave, on the day of judgment and in paradise, here is ingredient number four, a dua that they make Alhamdulillah it's left no secret for us. We can memorize it, or do it that describes just how scared the true servants of Rahman are from the Hellfire La ilaha illallah wa ala yaku Luna Robin Nasri another Abba Johanna.

00:05:52 --> 00:06:02

In Nevada hochanda harana. They are those who say, Our Lord, divert away from us to the punishment of Johanna the hellfire.

00:06:03 --> 00:06:17

Indeed, it's suffering is a lasting one, its punishment is a permanent one. Indeed, it is such an evil place with respect to settlement and residents in the house at moussaka, Ron WAMU comma

00:06:19 --> 00:06:20

La Ilaha illa Allah.

00:06:21 --> 00:06:23

So in other words,

00:06:24 --> 00:06:25

they pray at night.

00:06:26 --> 00:06:28

They fear Allah by day.

00:06:30 --> 00:06:38

They watch how they speak when provoked. And on top of all of that, they believe that they could eventually end up in hellfire.

00:06:39 --> 00:06:42

They are people who don't admire themselves in the least.

00:06:43 --> 00:06:45

There is no arrogance to them whatsoever.

00:06:46 --> 00:07:02

There is no admiration in the lives of those who are truly successful. And that is what you read between the lines here. They are scared. And that is a quality of a true believer. He is scared, she's scared. There is no self admiration whatsoever.

00:07:03 --> 00:07:09

And I want to mention a quick footnote for you here brothers and sisters. This is a very common theme in the book of Allah.

00:07:11 --> 00:07:27

whereby a connection is made between being a practicing Muslim and scared of the hellfire and the opposite, which is what not being a practicing Muslim, in and out of the religion and not scared of the Hellfire.

00:07:29 --> 00:07:50

And that is why Al Hasan bacillary he said in MENA, Jana Cernan, Russia Africa or in Al Mona Gemma attend. What Amina? He said the true believers they gather between two qualities. What are the two qualities? They do a lot of good deeds. Quality number two, they are afraid of Allah.

00:07:51 --> 00:07:52

That's the believer.

00:07:54 --> 00:08:18

And as for the hypocrite the Mona afek, he has two qualities. He doesn't do many good deeds, and he feels safe from the punishment of Allah. Allahu Akbar. Do you see it your brothers and sisters? So a sign of your righteousness is that you're scared sign of your piety. You don't know what your outcome is going to be. So you have no self admiration whatsoever.

00:08:20 --> 00:08:53

Look at what Allah says. Confirming this meaning that we are speaking about when Levine Are you doing the work who whom would you like to know whom isla? Robbie him Raggio THOSE PEOPLE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS Allah said Surah to me known. There are those who spend from the money that we have given them whilst having fear in their hearts, that they're going to return back to their loads. They give sadaqa and they are so terrified at the same token. Our mother isn't she wasn't under she wasn't very clear on this area.

00:08:54 --> 00:09:02

So she said oh prophet of allah sallallahu Sallam is this area in reference to those who find it Kate, who is their salah, who steal

00:09:03 --> 00:09:38

because they are scared. He said to her Leia interested there. No Oh daughter of Abu Bakr, Siddiq Homosassa Lord, we use a cone wire so Moon wire cellphone, Allah has the origin. Rather this area is speaking about people who pray, who fast while giving charity whilst fearing Allah at the same time. And in another narration we are California and now you have to cobalamin home and they are afraid that Allah is going to reject the good deeds. Quick recap my dear brothers, the believer has gathered between kootu characteristics what are they?

00:09:40 --> 00:09:47

Doing a lot of good deeds and being afraid of Allah. The hypocrite has also two qualities what are they?

00:09:48 --> 00:10:00

They don't do many good deeds and they feel safe from the punishment of Allah measure yourself against that yardstick. Look, they bow they prostrate at night, they fear Allah by day, they are worshipers of Allah

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

on the clock, and they say in their dua, oh Allah push away from us the punishment of the *

00:10:07 --> 00:10:15

because the words of Ibrahim, so Allahu alayhi wa sallam who said, Allah the autumn hour, will feel really hot, we are too young.

00:10:16 --> 00:10:48

And he Allah is the One who I hope will forgive my sin on the Day of Judgment. You think these were the words of a chronic sinner? You think these were the words of a addict of some sort? You think these are the words of somebody who is in and out of his salah. These are the words of Cardinal or rationale and the close friend of Allah subhanho wa taala. He is the one I hope will forgive my sins on the Day of Judgment. Consider the words of Yusuf alayhi salatu salam, that huge legacy his whole life was for the sake of Allah. What were his final words before he died?

00:10:50 --> 00:11:12

Some of his final words were telephony Muslim and what had happened he besides the pain caused me to die as a muslim Oh ALLAH caused me to die as a muslim and allow me to be with the righteous people consider the words of Abu Bakr in the city of Kabul the Allahu dalla Han who a man who had been given a guarantee of paradise over and over again during his life.

00:11:13 --> 00:11:33

He would say loaded to Allah, he and Neil are going to Shara 10 fee gem be avid in movement. I wish that I was just a strand of hair in the body of a righteous believer who said this? Acidic Abubakar, the number one of this OMA after the Prophet Muhammad SAW Allah and Allah

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

Imam Muhammad Rahmatullahi. And you know what I did for this religion right?

00:11:41 --> 00:12:09

Towards the end of his life, people would say to him, Look at how everyone is praising you, even those who are fighting jihad on the other side of the world, when they are firing their catapults they are saying oh Allah have mercy on achromat Oh ALLAH via the assistance of Armand. Look at how the world is praising you Oh Imam the believers are praising you he said a half on the Hakuna delicacy the Rajan mean Allah I am so scared that this may be Allah baiting me into my destruction.

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

And when they said to Imam athma Jazak Allahu Allah in Islamic hyperalgesia May Allah subhanaw taala reward you for what you have done for Islam.

00:12:20 --> 00:12:26

Imam Muhammad became angry with that statement. He said belges Allah holy Islam and the federal judge Ah, man.

00:12:28 --> 00:12:44

He said no May Allah reward is SNAM for what it has done for me. You are saying May Allah reward you for what you have done for us now. May Allah reward Islam for what it has done for me. As for Ahmed, who is he? What is he? That was what he said, Who am I and what am I?

00:12:46 --> 00:13:02

So you call Islam even though to me? Yeah, they would praise Him. He would say yaki la Muslim, lamb Muslim Islam and Jaden bad magic Muslim to or gently Doofy Islami my brother I am not even a good Muslim yet. I am still renewing my Islam every day.

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

And he would say under mocha the balloon boca de Hakka that can be Roger de and he would say merman Nisha wala fie Yoshi wala Anna che i am nothing

00:13:14 --> 00:13:28

and I am from nothing, and I have done nothing. See, the greater the good deeds of a person, the lower he is for people. And the more broken his heart is for Allah and the more he or she fears that the Hellfire is a prospect for me.

00:13:30 --> 00:13:45

And the greater the arrogance of a person is distance from Allah. You will find this person being of self admiration and of having no fear of Allah you asked him when was the last time you shed a tear from the fear of the fire he will tell you I cannot remember

00:13:46 --> 00:14:10

the true servants of Allah subhanaw taala therefore they are people who they do so much by night and by day and look at their dua, or Allah save us from the hellfire. These are not the words of hypocrites or foreign dictators or * addicts. God forbid. These are righteous people they say Allah save us from the hellfire. Thank you. This is the first reflection I wanted you to take from this area.

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

Everything you just heard now in this 15 minutes how could you summarize it in one line?

00:14:19 --> 00:14:20


00:14:22 --> 00:14:26

Good. So the signs of a true believer are two things good. What else could we say?

00:14:28 --> 00:14:40

They're scared of hellfire. What else could we say? They have no self admiration. They have no self admiration you these all could be valid headings for this part. Here is a heading number two.

00:14:42 --> 00:14:48

The Hellfire bomber Adana, Wilma Draaga manga what is the hellfire?

00:14:50 --> 00:14:59

They say you're a banner serif and they're either Jahannam Oh our Lord divert from us that are that the punishment of Johanna V

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

Hellfire in either Baja kinda haram because it's punishment is a lasting one, three key words here I want you to focus on

00:15:09 --> 00:15:19

or that we've translated as punishment Jahannam that is translated as hellfire and Adorama that is translated as

00:15:21 --> 00:15:32

permanent, lasting punishment. Take a look at these three words. This is just linguistic gymnastics. And we haven't even started talking about the Hellfire itself and look at the terror it's going to put in our hearts.

00:15:34 --> 00:15:53

Our DAP which we translate as Jahannam that we translate as punishment. What is the root of this word some of the linguist have set a variable as for honey being one of them, that it is taken from the concept or the verb of the other, who are the other who it means azana Although that

00:15:54 --> 00:15:58

is the process by which you remove the pleasure of something.

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

It is the process of removing that Oh, but the sweetness of something that is that?

00:16:08 --> 00:16:23

Are you getting a description of what punishment is found in the hellfire? It is an arena a destination that removes all forms of happiness and comfort and peace of mind from its inmates. That is what is meant by a hijab that we have translated as punishment.

00:16:25 --> 00:16:30

And then we said the hijab of Jahannam that we've translated as a Hellfire Jahannam what does it mean?

00:16:31 --> 00:16:35

If we say that the word Jahannam is an Arabic word and there is a difference of opinion?

00:16:36 --> 00:16:47

It is in reference to that which is by Eden cow who something that has a very deep bottom. Something that is deep.

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

It doesn't seem to have a bottom to it.

00:16:51 --> 00:17:10

So the Arabs they will say about a well that is very deep, they will say B Iran G Nam B Iran g hinami. Do you hear the word jahannam? A bit meaning a year a well gee na meaning it is very deep value that Ankara

00:17:11 --> 00:17:18

what does that tell you about the hellfire? We haven't even entered the Hellfire IE for the sake of our tour today the academic tour

00:17:19 --> 00:17:31

and look at the terror that now is in our heart. And then Allah they said that these people say indeed the punishment of Jahannam is a Karana a lasting one what is meant by the word haram?

00:17:32 --> 00:17:58

Haram haram it is reference to something that is lasting linguistically it is something that cleansing clings on to you. And it doesn't leave you for a very long time. And this is why as our brothers said that the one who is in love they say maharam won't be fooled and so and so has the haram for such and such. Why? Because that passion is lasting it's with you and saya with you in food with you when you are asleep. Rom lasting.

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

Okay, somebody who is in debt. Who is he in the Arabic language?

00:18:06 --> 00:18:08

Who is he in the Arabic language?

00:18:10 --> 00:18:15

Glory or green? Yeah, somebody who is very

00:18:16 --> 00:18:25

or Harare. He has a debt. Why? Because that debt is lasting it is with him wherever he goes, that debt is following him. It's a burden that doesn't disappear.

00:18:27 --> 00:18:33

So when Allah has described the punishment of * as being God Rama, what do you understand from that?

00:18:34 --> 00:18:46

It is a punishment that is lasting thing. It is a punishment that when it gets hold of a person, it will not let go our older biller. What do we know about the hellfire?

00:18:48 --> 00:18:59

Allahu Akbar. Brothers and Sisters in Islam, so much wisdom. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said well in the NARA, now you have the will be her il Allah.

00:19:01 --> 00:19:08

Nobody is allowed to punish with fire other than Allah subhanho wa Taala the messenger said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:19:09 --> 00:19:25

and that is why when you Ali Radi Allahu Allah and He punished a group of his contemporaries who itself said that you are God. You are God. He warned them from the statement they did not repent and so he bought them alive. Abdullah him not best said you should not have burned them alive.

00:19:26 --> 00:19:58

Because the fire is to only be used by Allah subhanaw taala and punishment. So much wisdom in that. You see somebody drowning to death. It is horrific. Somebody's being hacked to death. God forbid it is horrific. Somebody's falling from a building to his demise. It is horrific. Somebody's burning to death. By our world the standards it's on another level of gruesomeness the fire is a horrific apparatus to use for punishment. And that has been reserved for Allah agenda gelato in the hereafter.

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

Some of the

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

heatwaves, dear brothers and sisters that we experienced in the life of this world today

00:20:05 --> 00:20:13

are unbearable, so severe that they cause a standstill to the livelihoods of some of us in some parts of the world.

00:20:14 --> 00:20:34

And that is because of a son. That is located a staggering 149 million kilometres away from our heads. La ilaha illa Allah, what then about a hellfire, which the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us is 70 times hotter than the fire of this world.

00:20:35 --> 00:20:41

Naraku allottee yo kW Adam, Joe's own Minister behind unmin

00:20:42 --> 00:20:43

Minetti Johanna,

00:20:45 --> 00:21:15

he said the fire that you use oh man today is only one of 70 parts of the Hellfire of Allah, one of the 70 parts. The Companions were horrified when they heard this. They said yeah rasool Allah he encountered like fear, or messenger of Allah if Allah subhanaw taala was to punish us in the hellfire, using the fire of this world that would have been sufficient at would have been enough of a punishment. He said it is 70 times hotter than the fire of yours today.

00:21:16 --> 00:21:19

Now Illa in Allah, and in the Hadith,

00:21:20 --> 00:21:46

in which there was a doubt in his chain of transmission. It is attributed to the President or son Allahu alayhi wa sallam that he said describing the color of Johanna. This is the fire Dear brothers and sisters that these true servants of Allah are asking Allah to protect them from you wonder how come they are so eager to be eggs to be protected from the Hellfire here is a here is a tour of what is to expect God forbid if you and I do not make it to paradise.

00:21:48 --> 00:21:51

Orchid Island naughty nerdy, me a diamond

00:21:53 --> 00:22:08

at the hamara Touma Okidata from okie Darla Nari me a diamond had to build that from okay down and meet a diamond or call it alpha Santa had this word that we're here so that I can lay in it for him I was when

00:22:09 --> 00:22:29

he said the Hellfire was heated by Allah Almighty for 1000 years till its flames became bread. Then it was heated for another 1000 years till it's flames became white. Then it was heated another 1000 years till it's flames became black. Therefore, he said the Hellfire is darker than the pitch black night.

00:22:32 --> 00:22:34

They are made to enter the hellfire.

00:22:35 --> 00:22:47

What is the first thing that happens when those who have failed until the Hellfire enter the hellfire, whether they are people who had no Eman or whether they are Muslims whose good deeds were not sufficient.

00:22:49 --> 00:23:07

Allah Almighty tells us what is first in a highly him slider Fionna the moment the gates of the Hellfire will be voltage shut. Allah said in columns he No columns outstretched, there's no coming out.

00:23:08 --> 00:23:22

They turned around to see what is waiting for them inside. And now the brothers and sisters they see what no human being could have ever imagined no poet could have ever described. They see a sadistic creature.

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

They see an arena that was designed to mutilate to her to dismember to this symbol to skew appearance. They see a very cruel creature that enjoys hearing its inmates scream out of pain. This is the fire of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:41 --> 00:23:45

they see mountains cliffs of fire.

00:23:46 --> 00:23:52

The inmates of whom are forced to climb up over and beyond time and time again.

00:23:53 --> 00:24:22

And they see small areas solitary confinement if you wish. They look inside and they see groups of people shackled together suffering in those small areas. Allah Almighty said we're either all combing her Mecanim but you can make a run in there are nearly Katha whare when they those criminals are placed in very small areas all shackled together in chains, you will hear them calling Allah Almighty begging him for destruction

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

begging him for death.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:27

What else do you see there in Jahannam

00:24:29 --> 00:24:35

you see a reality you now understand why Allah Almighty had given this place these names why Allah had called the Jahannam

00:24:37 --> 00:24:43

the bottomless pit and the HA we are the bottomless pit. A Sahil

00:24:44 --> 00:24:56

ignited fire al Jakeem the fierce fire. I love Oklahoma, the cause of debris. These are all names of Jahannam and now that they are inside they realize why it was given these names.

00:24:57 --> 00:25:00

You look around. You see it

00:25:00 --> 00:25:12

valleys of fire close of fire scorpions pythons ditches, mountains smoke, all of it prepared for the suffering of its inmates.

00:25:14 --> 00:25:42

You look around you see angels who are forcing some men and some women to lie down on mattresses beddings of bands of fire and then they are covered with coverings of fire ALLAH SubhanA wa Adalja said Nahum mujer Hanham me how do we mean forget him go should they will be given given beddings of fire and they will be covered with coverings of fire. You look at the clothings that they are wearing Subhanallah

00:25:44 --> 00:26:04

What are on moody Mina? Yoma even more caronian As far as Allah said, you will see the criminals shackled all together in chains Sarabi la hoomin Tata Iran and their garments will be made out of ignited ta What shall we do home oh now and the fire will be attacking, attacking their faces.

00:26:05 --> 00:26:49

You look around and although there is nothing to smile about in Jahannam you notice that some of the inmates of the Hellfire are grinning. You ask yourself La Ilaha illa Allah What is there to greet about in this place and you realize they are not grinning out of joy? As Allah subhanho wa Taala said, tell him for her Would you go home or not? The fire will see their faces. What will Humphrey her galley Hone? In inside the fire they will be grinning, how come? Because Allah said about the Hellfire in another area Nuzhat in the shower, it is a fire that removes exteriors. And you know that this will reveal the skull of such a person. And the appearance of a skull is that of a person

00:26:49 --> 00:26:51

who is who is grading our the villa.

00:26:52 --> 00:27:02

And here brothers and sisters they will shriek in fatigue shriek in a hunger and starvation shriek for anything to drink so Allah will give them something to drink.

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

Allah subhanaw taala said we're in yesterday through if they call for drink, you'll have a thought we will give them a drink. Bhima in Colombo, they will be made to drink water that is like molten brass. Yes, you will withdraw that will burn their faces

00:27:21 --> 00:27:46

it's a shot Abu Mustafa how dreadful is the drink Allah said and how evil is the resting place burns their face. Merely bringing the vessel to their faces causes their flesh to to melt away. What then about when they drink it? Allah said was so Kuma and Hamid and forgot whom they will be given a boiling drink to consume that will tear apart their bowels.

00:27:49 --> 00:28:29

And what is worse is that they will be drinking this drink with passion with urge although they hate it, but they are so thirsty. Allah subhana wa Adana said meanwhile, you're hanging them in front of them as a punishment while you are while you scamming. In studied and he will be made to drink from a drink made of pus. You think to yourself How will he drink a drink of pus? Allah said Yatta JAL Rao who he will force himself to drink it. Go into your car do you see who and he will be hardly able to swallow it? Well yeah, tea Hill Motoman Cooley makan and death will come to him from every corner. Well, no one will be made yet but he shall never die. I mean, what are you hearing Ivan?

00:28:32 --> 00:28:35

What next? They are starving.

00:28:36 --> 00:29:00

They haven't eaten for years. So what is on their menu for the people of defier? Allah subhana Adana said a valley kaha urine New Zealand Amisha Jarrah to Jaco is paradise a better destination or the tree of zuccon in Allah the tree of Zacco even when you say it in the Arabic language, you feel that pronounciation is stuck in your throat zuccon

00:29:01 --> 00:29:14

In shahzada, Zacco other Alika you don't know Xulon Amercia geodata Zacco in Jana Hafeet and attend live violin mean Allah said this is a tree that we have made a trial for the wrong people

00:29:15 --> 00:29:39

in the harsh era to introduce us ninja him. Allah said this is a tree that grows from the bottom of the Hellfire, Tolo haka Anna, who rose to shine clean and the fruits of this tree they look like the heads of devils, the inner homeless IQ. Lun Amin has an early on I mean, Halbert wound, and they will eat from this tree over and over again till their bellies are full.

00:29:40 --> 00:29:49

Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Lo and Nakata rotten minutes is a chrome you could do that with dunya Allah officer that Allah Allah dunya MA You shall Hamza cave abdomen your corner.

00:29:51 --> 00:29:57

He said if a single drop from the tree of the corn was to be placed in the life of this world today a single drop

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

it would complete

00:30:00 --> 00:30:03

Italy devastate the livelihoods of humanity.

00:30:04 --> 00:30:09

He said what then do you make of a person whose main food in Jahannam is from Zakho?

00:30:15 --> 00:30:22

You look around and you also see people who are being turned around in the fire like meat on a skewer.

00:30:24 --> 00:30:26

Allah said Yoma to caliber whoo hoo comfy now.

00:30:27 --> 00:30:32

On the day you see their faces being turned around in the fire. Yeah.

00:30:34 --> 00:30:42

Allah Allah Rasool Allah as they say, we wish we hope obeyed Allah Jalla Jalla Allah who we wish we had obeyed Allah and His messenger.

00:30:43 --> 00:31:01

And you look to your right and you took a look to your left you see others who have been consumed completely by the Hellfire there is nothing, nothing left of them but a lump of coal. Is that the end of their suffering? That is the beginning of their suffering. That is because Allah said in Alladhina Cafaro those who have denied

00:31:02 --> 00:31:12

our signs they have disbelieved. In Alladhina Cafaro will be it now those who have belied our signs so Wolf and also the hem Nara we shall push them inside of a fire

00:31:14 --> 00:31:30

kulana not to eject julu home but the Nahum julu Then Ha ha, Leah who colada every time their skin roasts, we shall replace them with new skin so that the may taste the punishment.

00:31:32 --> 00:31:35

Everything you are hearing brothers and sisters is

00:31:36 --> 00:32:14

a suffering that is on two millimeter or so in the life of this world, when we talk about burns, you are talking about a burning that is affecting your skin your skin is around they say 1.75 millimeters to two millimeters, and the thickest part of the body like the heel, perhaps it reaches five millimeters. That is what skin is so thin. Yet look at the suffering we have when when this shallow layer is burnt off. And they see that there are three different degrees of burns you have a first degree burn and the second degree and then a third degree. And some doctors have said there is also a fourth degree level of burning

00:32:15 --> 00:32:29

a first degree of then what is it, it's a light burn. Maybe it's a bit of exposure to sun without cream. So your skin peels off a little bit. It goes around minor inflammation, a bit of pain. And that will recover within a week or so.

00:32:31 --> 00:33:01

And then you have what they call the second degree burn. This is just in our dunya today dear brothers and sisters a second degree burn. This is when you have blisters appearing in your skin. Some of them may pop revealing the sensitive part beneath it. And then you have a wet weeping appearance or wet appearance as pus comes out. And this is very painful, it is excruciating. They say don't put cotton on it, don't put material on it, it will stick it may fuse with your injury. And again, this may take now three to four weeks to fully recover.

00:33:02 --> 00:33:24

And then you have a third degree burn May Allah Almighty protect us from the Hellfire a third degree burn, this is so severe that it can usually cause death, because of not only the blood loss that comes out of the body, but the heat loss, the body falls into a state of shock, the outer garment is removed and a person dies because of shock or pain or loss of blood or energy.

00:33:26 --> 00:33:40

And they say that if surgery is not carried out on somebody who has experienced a third degree burn there, and then then this person will suffer serious scarring to his body. And it is very, very unlikely that their appearance will ever return to how it was again.

00:33:41 --> 00:33:42

That's a third degree ban.

00:33:43 --> 00:33:53

And then they say it even reaches a point where you no longer feel feel pain and that's your fourth degree ban your third or fourth degree ban because of the damage done to the nerve endings. You no longer feel pain.

00:33:55 --> 00:34:17

Or all of this suffering brothers and sisters is on how much 1.752 millimeters worth of skin. People of the Hellfire, the messenger said about them. Alayhi Salatu was Salam that the thickness of their skin is 4220422 arm's length.

00:34:18 --> 00:34:22

And in another narration, he said 70 arm's length.

00:34:23 --> 00:34:25

Do you know what this means? I mean, how long is it?

00:34:26 --> 00:34:39

an arm's length about 5050 or So centimeters half a meter. So if you say 42 arm's length, that's how many meters 21 meters 21 meters. In the other narration he said 70 arm's length

00:34:40 --> 00:34:59

has 35 meters worth of skin that's just the thickness of the skin. Their bodies are huge. And Allah is saying in this area every time those skins are roasted 35 meters worth of it. We shall replace them with a new garment of skin so that they may taste the punishment Allah

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

Sit down with the

00:35:02 --> 00:35:09

brothers and sisters at this point the people of * will will hate themselves and they will hate all of those who misguided them

00:35:10 --> 00:35:38

and they will begin pointing the finger of blame as they roast, shouting and screaming This is your fault. This is your fault. You were the one who campaigned for this course. You were the one who took me away from the Masjid. You are the one who mocked the religion made it seem small in my eyes. You are the people who convinced me to buy and sell that haram in toxic and you you you then an announcement is made as they are blaming one another and hating one another announcement is made where Allah Almighty said

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

in the Levina cafardo Yuna Dona Lama, Allahu Akbar Rumi, Makati come full circle.

00:35:46 --> 00:35:49

Indeed those who disbelieved will be called towards

00:35:50 --> 00:35:59

they will be called and they will be told that the hatred that Allah has for you is greater than the hatred you have for one another. Is the forum because of your disbelief.

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

When you are is too down or ill Imani fetac freuen. Remember when you used to be called to Eman and you denied?

00:36:07 --> 00:36:20

What do the people have held you now they have no choice. They need to find a way out this is a very unmanageable situation. This is completely unsustainable. This is unbearable. They begin calling out they need any type of relief.

00:36:21 --> 00:36:25

First person whom they will call towards will be

00:36:27 --> 00:36:29

will be the gatekeepers of jahannam.

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

We'll call it Levine effin really has energy Johanna, mojo back home you and your woman mean another.

00:36:38 --> 00:36:50

The people of * will call the gatekeepers of Jahannam saying to them, Call upon your Lord and ask him to lessen the punishment for us by just one day.

00:36:51 --> 00:36:59

We know we're not going to come out we know we can't go to paradise. Can you just ask you know to decrease the punishment by just one day allow us to breathe

00:37:01 --> 00:37:20

the response. Our Limp tekota T Komodo Zulu combat unit did messengers not come to you with evidences called rubella? They will say they did go to federal so keep making your requests keep calling one or two out when caffeine are interviewed on because the requests of those who have no faith are completely invade.

00:37:21 --> 00:37:48

They are rejected by the keepers of the fire. What next? They remember their brothers. In paradise Allah there was Muslims who were mocked for spending their weekends in the masjid. There was Muslims who were mocked because of the identity that they upheld even when all of the isms of society was against them. They are now diving in and out of the rivers of paradise. They remember them they call them Allah documents this conversation in the Quran.

00:37:49 --> 00:38:09

Whenever the US hub with Jannetty whenever the US hub Nereus have agenda Allah said the people of the Hellfire will scream towards the people of paradise and feed lining mean I'm not saying to them, bring us any of the water pour on top of us our bodies are in flames pour on top of us water

00:38:10 --> 00:38:23

only matters aka Kamala or anything that Allah has provided you with the risk they will respond by saying in Allah ha ha Rama Huma handled carefully and Allah has prohibited both of these things for the for the people who had no faith.

00:38:25 --> 00:38:28

What next, they have to find a way out.

00:38:29 --> 00:38:39

They remember Allah on camera he mean the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious, the most subtle, the most forgiving, but he will not show them any of these characteristics on that day.

00:38:41 --> 00:39:07

They will speak to Allah dua Urbana or our Lord Allah but Allah inertia our wretchedness overcame us we admit what could not Omen by mean and we went astray so badly, but I'm gonna Krishna minha our Lord we ask you to let us leave the Hellfire for in ordina if we ever return to our evil ways in the moon, we will be wrongdoers and the response will come from Allah.

00:39:08 --> 00:39:14

If you have to kill the moon, remain in the Hellfire in disgrace and do not speak with me.

00:39:15 --> 00:39:45

And that will be the last time they ever hear from Allah subhanho wa Taala they will never see Allah. They will never hear from Allah and they will never exit from the hellfire. What hosts do they have? They have one final hope and they call the main keeper of the campfire. His name is His name is Malik. His name is Malik Allah said whenever they scream yeah Malik Oh Malik Lea called the Aileen out of book tell your Lord to cause us to die.

00:39:46 --> 00:39:56

We can speak to Allah. Tell him allow us to die. Imagine a suffering so severe you begin to wish for death. And the response comes

00:39:57 --> 00:39:59

according to Abdullah Hypno Abbas F

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

Till 1000 years, waiting for our response, what would it be? Will we be allowed to die this is the greatest of their ambitions now death.

00:40:10 --> 00:40:14

The response will be in murky tune you shall remain

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

after 1000 years.

00:40:19 --> 00:40:23

And then just when things couldn't get any worse, they get far worse.

00:40:24 --> 00:40:25

Years have passed by.

00:40:27 --> 00:40:45

And the worst of all Muslims who was also burning in the Hellfire would have now been exited because the Hellfire will never burn a Muslim forever, he will leave those whose good deeds were not enough for a pass to gender straight away, he will leave, she will leave, they will leave leaving only those who will stay there forever.

00:40:47 --> 00:40:49

Then an announcement will be made

00:40:50 --> 00:40:58

a white and black speckled RAM will be brought somewhere between paradise and *, all of them will be able to see it.

00:41:02 --> 00:41:03

And what is that run?

00:41:04 --> 00:41:11

My brothers what is that? That run? It is unmount it is death that Allah has given it the form of around

00:41:12 --> 00:41:20

the angel will say oh people have gender. So they will crane their necks and look, do you recognize this? They will say yes, that is death.

00:41:21 --> 00:41:37

Then he will say oh people of the fire. They will crane their necks for your shadow for your shadow Bonelli on the road. And they will look do you recognize this? They will say yes, that is death. And then that RAM is placed on its side, and it is slaughtered.

00:41:39 --> 00:41:50

And then the angel says oh people of Jana, you shall remain in paradise forever. You'll never have to worry about death. And old people of the fire, you're going to stay there forever.

00:41:51 --> 00:42:01

You will never die. Our mother is a she said, if anybody was going to die, because of happiness, it would have been the people of Jana.

00:42:02 --> 00:42:32

And if anybody was going to die of sorrow and grief, it would have been at that moment, the people, the people of the fire for you to say to Eileen human Ibuka then the people of fire will begin to cry, having realized that there is no way out crying like never before crying intensely insanely, till their tears they dry up and then they begin to cry, rivers of blood and the messenger said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that if boats and ships were to sail they would sail in their tears. Now, you know,

00:42:33 --> 00:42:41

Brothers and Sisters in Islam surely it is easier to burn away our addictions our students our haram conversations, our impermissible inhalations

00:42:42 --> 00:42:51

our transactions across lines, surely it is easier to burn those away today than to suffer and to burn the hands of the Hellfire.

00:42:52 --> 00:43:14

Well, the fcbd the messenger said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I swear by the one who possesses myself, Laura, it will lead you right now the Hector McAleenan what a bear case baccatum kathira. If you had seen what I have seen, you would laugh so little, you would cry so much. They said to him one other ATR Rasulullah What did you see a messenger of Allah he said that I told Janetta winnaar I have seen Paradise and *.

00:43:16 --> 00:43:38

So the people of the true servants of Allah, they are scared of the punishment of heaven. So they say in their Doha Robina Serafina Oh Allah, Allah from us the punishment of a *. Indeed, it's punishment is a lasting one in the HRSA at most of the Quran, one more karma Indeed, it is an evil place with respect to residence and settlement.

00:43:39 --> 00:43:51

Just before we conclude, brothers, brothers and sisters, one more characteristic that we know from the true servants of Rama, so far we have covered in order what are they, how they walk, how they

00:43:52 --> 00:44:00

respond to people of ignorance. Number three, how they spend their nights they pray, number four, how they

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

how they fear the hellfire and they do they make a DUA, are we going to memorize the DUA Dear brothers and sisters?

00:44:10 --> 00:44:14

Here is characteristic number five. Now it's about money.

00:44:15 --> 00:44:21

Allah said well levena either, Falco lamb use reform wala Mia Gu to

00:44:23 --> 00:44:24

Lika Kawa

00:44:25 --> 00:44:37

and they are those whom when they spend they do not spend excessively, nor do they spend stingy Li and they take a middle course between those two paths.

00:44:39 --> 00:44:46

Allahu Akbar. So these are people their brothers and sisters who recognize that Allah has a right in their money.

00:44:48 --> 00:44:58

Yes, as we said earlier, it is not business, Masjid, or Masjid business and business business. All of it is a trade with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:45:01 --> 00:45:03

They have a portion of sadaqa that they give

00:45:05 --> 00:45:11

the people who are the true successful ones in Allah's eyes, they have maybe a standing order

00:45:12 --> 00:45:18

that they've set up in their bank account on a daily, weekly monthly basis that goes out in preparation for the hereafter.

00:45:19 --> 00:45:26

They realize that one of the greatest of all acts of worship especially in the month of Ramadan is given from your money that Allah has lent you dear brother, the sister

00:45:28 --> 00:45:32

and the messenger said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam narrates on the authority of Akbar,

00:45:33 --> 00:45:34


00:45:35 --> 00:45:47

feelingly sadaqa t he had a youth salah, bringing it back, every man will be in a shade under the shade of his charity on the Day of Judgment, till the matter between people is settled.

00:45:49 --> 00:46:09

He has it who was one of the writers of this hadith, he said, after hearing this narration, I will say who was again one of the narrator's would not allow a day to go by unless he would give something in charity even if it was a biscuit or an onion, al Qaeda or something like that. Something small.

00:46:10 --> 00:46:54

They recognize that the greatest proof of Eman that you can provide one of the greatest proof of email you can provide on the day of judgment to justify your your tears for Jana is sadaqa. He said was sadaqa to Mohan, he said SallAllahu Sallam charity is proof What hope can you and I have Dear brothers and sisters in acquiring a six figure pay job without offering the proof required for that job? What hope does a stranger have into in coming into your home claiming he is a plumber or an electrician without offering you ID proof that he is who he is and similarly what hope do we have for safety on the day of judgment if we don't show Allah proof that we deserve that safety and part

00:46:54 --> 00:46:55

of that proof is sadaqa

00:46:57 --> 00:47:22

I know some brothers mashallah Tabata Kola who are part of a certain Whatsapp group and there is around 2425 of them they said look, there's so many of us some of us have an income some of us have a wage, why not get together set up a fund just for us five pounds a month each 10 pounds a month each whatever we can give and then we allocate it to a certain project of goodness when there is a good amount of money well that we can

00:47:24 --> 00:47:46

dig or an orphan We can sponsor or something to that effect. And every one of his brothers and sisters is part of a such as such a WhatsApp group, do the same send out the message you'd be the first do it now lower your head, take out your phone, unlock the password go into that group say to them, let's set up a fund five pounds each there's 100 of us in this group 500 pound a month

00:47:48 --> 00:48:14

let us prepare something for our hereafter. One question that really remains here is how do we understand this idea that says that they are people who when they spend they don't spend excessively or stingy by they take a middle course I mean, is there a touchstone to balance whether or to understand whether I have given too much or too little, whether I was miser or whether I was excessive? Any ideas?

00:48:17 --> 00:48:23

How do I understand if my sadaqa was excessive or my stomach? I was stingy? Yeah.

00:48:28 --> 00:48:44

Good. Ah, so, Reese has helped us think out of the box, he said, if it's a sadaqa it cannot be considered excessive in any situation. So what is Allah referring to here? When he says they are not excessive when they spend

00:48:46 --> 00:48:50

on themselves? Okay, very good. So now we can put those answers together

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

without hating your job.

00:48:54 --> 00:49:46

From the tabular from the tabular, he said, lo unfactored. Mithila RB, Kobe is in the hada lemmya kundalika. Serif, wallow unfuck that lower low and Dr. Mukden fee Marcia Tila he can can refer. If you were to spend he said a mountain of gold as a charity for the sake of Allah, it wouldn't be excessive. If however, you were to spend just a handful of something in Haram it would have been it would have been what? Excessive. So if you were to put so much money 1000s For the sake of Allah and you are able to do that it is not excessive, but a single pound that you spend on a haram on the sea tobacco or cigarette or 20 minutes with a shisha or something like that. That is excessive, even if

00:49:46 --> 00:49:48

it's just a fiver or a tenner.

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

If you were to put 1000 For the sake of Allah Jalla Jalla Allahu it wouldn't be excessive because it is for the sake of Allah. Do you see brothers and sisters here the criteria

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

so the true servants of Allah

00:50:00 --> 00:50:13

of Hanover data, they are quick to calculate those occur. They are too quick to set up that standing order. They are quick to see those people who are in need and to splash out on them and to enrich their families beginning with them and then moving out to their communities.

00:50:14 --> 00:50:30

And there was another interesting thing here. Not only are the true servants of Allah Almighty people who pay there's a cap, and they give out in sadaqa, and they have a continual charity that's going on for them. They also don't go overboard when spending on the halal on themselves.

00:50:31 --> 00:50:39

This is a very key point here. They don't overspend even on themselves. And even if that matter is completely hulland they don't do that.

00:50:41 --> 00:51:14

And that is why Ameerul Momineen Amaro, the Allahu Anhu he said Katha Bill Murray sorry, Eva, Allah, you're still here she and first daughter who was at UCLA who he said if you are a person whom every time you fancy something, you buy it and consume it, then that is excessive. That is excessive, every time and that is why when our predecessor is he he saw another man who was wearing something that does not be fit his background. So clearly he has been excessive on himself. He said to him, why did you buy that? He said Easter how you to who I fancied it.

00:51:16 --> 00:51:31

So he said to him CoolerMaster hightest right. Every time you fancy something, you buy it CoolerMaster Hitesh, the right that is not a methodology for a believer to conduct himself with. So here we have a description there are brothers and sisters of how the true servants of Iran deal with their money.

00:51:32 --> 00:52:02

So it's not just about the borrowing and the prostrating in the masjid. Even their finances has a say about their success with Allah. I wanted to mention a few other characteristics however we've gone over the allocated time. So we will stop here. Next week in sha Allah Tala we will continue with the remaining characteristics and we will finish it in sha Allah Who gala and then we will mention about the we will mention the reward that Allah has prepared for these people. It's not fair that today we dedicated about 35 or so minutes speaking about the hellfire, it's not fair.

00:52:03 --> 00:52:10

What then about those who have worked for gender that hasn't been left a secret we will speak something about that next week if Allah gives us life into them,

00:52:11 --> 00:52:25

was all alone and if you know Hamad Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen your brothers and sisters you're free to go as far as the remaining who wish to stay. Let me know if there's any questions that you would like to ask and any thoughts better still, you would like to share
