Smilla will hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah he was early he was so happy human vida. Welcome brothers and sisters to our fourth and final lecture from our series titled The Life series.

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

Now ILA in the law how quick the month of Ramadan has passed, it felt as if it was just yesterday we were introducing the beginning of Ramadan.

00:00:23--> 00:00:26

When citing the words of Imam Abdul Josie, if you remember back then,

00:00:27--> 00:00:31

and telling you about the series and what it's about and how the idea came about.

00:00:32--> 00:00:41

And now we find ourselves bidding the month and bidding the series farewell as we will do with our families and as we will do with life as a whole.

00:00:42--> 00:01:03

Boiler cam ladies don't fill out the either the scene on the Day of Judgment, people will be asked how many years did you live in the life of dunya? 7080 90 What do you remember? They will see Lebbeus now yo man obado Yo, first Elena, the we stayed in life about a day or two.

00:01:04--> 00:01:06

So ask those who keep collection of the days.

00:01:09--> 00:01:12

We began the series speaking about the gangster life.

00:01:15--> 00:01:30

And then we moved up to speak about the empowered life. And then we moved it up a notch again to speak about the good life. And the focus of last week's lecture was an area from Surah to Nahal. or Allah said Minami la saleha

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

been carrying out on whoever works good deeds, whether male or female, were who were mean whilst having Iman, what was the outcome? Do you remember?

00:01:45--> 00:01:52

furlough? No he and the who hired them to EBA we will cause them to live a good life.

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

That was the focus of last week's talk what is the good life?

00:01:58--> 00:02:13

But we didn't conclude the idea. What is the conclusion of the verse? While energy and home as your home be as an American we are alone and we will give them their reward in full because of what they used to do meaning in Jannah

00:02:15--> 00:02:28

so what is the nature of this full reward that Allah Jen legit Allah who has prepared for those who do good deeds whilst having Eman, good life in dunya and a full rewarding the Akira let us take a look at what that looks like.

00:02:29--> 00:02:33

In our final lecture for Ramadan 2022

00:02:35--> 00:02:42

When the believers have finished from the trauma of the grave, and the horrors of the resurrection,

00:02:44--> 00:02:49

and they have finally crossed over the Sirat the bridge that leads over the hellfire.

00:02:50--> 00:02:59

And now no one remains but the Muslims. That hypocrites are in hell, that people have no faith, they are in hell.

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

And now you only have the practicing Muslims whose good deeds were greater than their sins.

00:03:07--> 00:03:10

There is a phase here that not many people speak about.

00:03:11--> 00:03:17

One last phase before they enter Jannah it's called Alcantara.

00:03:19--> 00:03:23

alcantara means a bridge. It's a second bridge.

00:03:25--> 00:03:36

What is the nature of that bridge? And what is its purpose because hell is finished now. For them. Buhari generates on your authority of Abu Sahelian and coldry that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:03:39--> 00:03:45

either call us on mute me know and I mean and now when the believers have been saved from the Hellfire

00:03:46--> 00:04:09

he'll be Sue will be on Bharat in banal Jannetty one now they will be detained at a bridge between paradise and hell. What will happen there so I gotta call sooner Maha Lima kinda to be in their home feed dunya. And there, they will settle the scores that they had between them in dunya.

00:04:11--> 00:04:18

So there's issues, there's problems, there's misunderstandings, there are disagreements. Nobody can enter agenda with an ill heart.

00:04:19--> 00:04:43

They will discuss all of their problems and their misunderstandings and they will settle their schools until they have been purified. Had that either Nope. Who were who Geebo all the in Allahu Beadaholique agenda till when they have been cleansed and completely purified. Permission will now be given to them to enter gender.

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

No more deaths to worry about. You will never have to worry about the fear of Allah. You will never have to fear his wrath. Never will you have to worry about the hell or to see the face of the angel of death. Now what stands between you and Jana?

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

I gates and imagine the sight of the billions of Muslims Allahu Akbar making their way towards the gates of gender.

00:05:08--> 00:05:19

What do these gates look like? Oh tomorrow even who has won the companion who said what Allah healer called to do Kerala, Anna Anna Yuna, Masada and Jana tema, Sirata Arbaeen AMA,

00:05:20--> 00:05:24

he said it has been narrated to us by Allah,

00:05:25--> 00:05:35

that the distance between the two posts of a gate of Jana is the distance of 40 years worth of travel.

00:05:38--> 00:05:51

And then he said, Well, I like the analogy here will Manuel who will cover you those who haven't. Yet there will come a day when those doors will be crowded with people. May Allah allow us to be part of those crowds.

00:05:53--> 00:06:36

They make their way towards the gates of Jana coladas. It's paradise. Imagine the joy, the elation and the excitement. You are there with your wife, your husband, your children, your friends, your family, your teachers, those who attended the masjid with and you're looking at the gates of Jana, you're awaiting for them to swing open, who will be the first to knock from all of humanity no one will not before our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before Idris before he aku will be forced to lay man before Adam before Ibrahim before Musa and now he said he will come forward and he will knock. The angels will say who is it he will say Mohammed and he will say the angels will say

00:06:36--> 00:06:41

we have been instructed by Allah to not open these gates to anyone before you.

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

And now the gates they begin to swing open.

00:06:47--> 00:06:49

And I'd want you to imagine for just a moment

00:06:51--> 00:07:18

what the faces of those first batch of Muslims will look like when they enter Jannah because they will not enter paradise all at once. There are batches there are groups depending on how quick and enthusiastic you work to doing Hassan Earth and apologizing to Allah from your sins today will determine what batch you shall be from. We would like to be from the first batch what will they look like as they enter this the soils of Jana?

00:07:20--> 00:07:26

The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes and he said I want to zoom right in yet Kowloon agenda.

00:07:28--> 00:07:58

Totally Oh whoo hoo hoo. Atal Camarilla electoral battery. The very first batch of Muslims to enter paradise. Their faces will glow like the glowing of the moon on the night when it is full. And the second batch So Melissa, you know, ya know now home, I shed decal Kevin durian for summer, and then the second batch after them, their faces will glow like the brightest planet that you have seen in the sky.

00:08:00--> 00:08:30

They enter Jannah and angels are standing in their reception, Mala Iike, whom you will see angels whom you will hear and they will speak to you they are just as excited for you as you are for yourself. And what do they say Come in, come in. They will say salam alaikum Peace be upon you, Salam Alikum playbar to you've done so well. Fed Hoo, hoo, hoo, ha ha redeem so enter Jana, you will stay here forever.

00:08:33--> 00:08:36

And the moment they enter Jannah

00:08:37--> 00:09:14

they find that inside of them is the knowledge of the whereabouts of everything. They don't need to ask for directions. They don't need to set up a navigator. A Google Maps it's all been imprinted in their hearts. And that's why the Nabhi you have Kareem sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said what are the NFC bat fcbd healer I do hornbeam a scan he filled Jannetty Adele Looby Manzini, he kind of dunya he said, I swear by the one who possesses my life. They will know the directions to their palaces, to their terrains to their kingdoms better than they know the directions to their homes today.

00:09:15--> 00:09:28

When you go home after this lecture from this mystery, when you ask for directions, you know exactly where to find your house. He said, You will know where your palaces are in Jannah better than you know where your house is today.

00:09:30--> 00:09:52

You come in, and the maps of gender have been printed on your heart, you know, where your holes are waiting where your rivers are waiting, where your oceans of wine where your kingdoms are, you know, it's down this road. Take a second left from the palace of Ibrahima, you said and keep going down until you meet Jaco will take the first left from the second market, you know where to find everything that belongs to you.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

Allahu Akbar, and they enter Jannah and here the sea scene

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

Is that defies description,

00:10:03--> 00:10:29

the see meadows of endless perfection, the experience and ambience that has been perfected by Allah the most perfect himself. They see things that no eye has ever seen and ears have never heard. And the their senses are about to be spoiled in the most lavish of all ways. And then they hear an announcement being made echoing through the gardens of Jana. What does the announcement say?

00:10:31--> 00:11:02

In Nola calm under Fela demo to about the old people of Jana, you will be given life you will never have to die again. We're in a locker room and as a health alert a scandal and you will be given health you will never have to worry about illness again. We're in a lack of mentorship bufala to horombo and you will be given youth Never will you go old again. We're in a locker room and then move to another and you will be given bliss you will never be sad again.

00:11:04--> 00:11:13

We ask Allah Jenna gelato to make us from the inhabitants of Jana, and our mothers and fathers to be from the very first batch to enteral for those who La La Miami.

00:11:16--> 00:11:31

We would like to take a tour of what inside what is inside agenda there how relevant it is to finish off the month of Ramadan speaking about our goal, which is the pleasure of Allah and to enter his gardens of Paradise.

00:11:33--> 00:11:34

How will we do it? However,

00:11:36--> 00:11:39

how should we describe and tour gender?

00:11:40--> 00:11:48

I will do it in a way that I claim is a little bit unconventional. We will do it by studying the opposite of gender.

00:11:50--> 00:11:54

We will be comparing what Paradise has to offer with the life of this world.

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

Because one of the poet's he says what live Do you have the hero house now who do we have that MA Yes Will I share who he says that with opposite to the qualities of things become clearer, with the opposite to the qualities of things become clearer.

00:12:14--> 00:12:21

So you can only really appreciate the calmness of the night if you've experienced want the chaos of day.

00:12:23--> 00:12:31

You can only in really appreciate what it means to have a soothing crunchy cup of water if you've experienced the dryness of thirst.

00:12:33--> 00:12:41

And a lot of people they say you can only really experience the full sweetness of Islam if you've tried the life of sin or the life of Jackie Lee or ignorance.

00:12:42--> 00:13:05

And the Quran is filled with these comparisons between their opposites. It compares between the night and the day it compares between the sun and the moon. It compares between the words of Allah and the words of man. It compares between the death and those who can hear on the blind and those who can see it compares between dunya and the hereafter is what

00:13:07--> 00:13:28

Allah said out of the tomb Bill hayati dunya. Bilal ask Iran, are you satisfied with the life of this world? Over the hereafter? Look at the comparison. Feminine McDowell hayati, dunya Fila karate Illa. Pauline, Allah says because the enjoyment of this world in comparison to the next is very little

00:13:30--> 00:13:46

as if to say, oh human being, if you are struggling with worldly attachments, and you can't get this world out of your heart and you're falling into perpetual sin, all you need to do is compare this world with the afterlife, then you will see the difference.

00:13:47--> 00:14:01

So that is what we will going to be doing in sha Allah. We would like to Tor Paradise by looking at the opposite comparing it with the life of this world is going to be a 10 point stop in sha Allah Huhtala. And let us begin with the first of the

00:14:03--> 00:14:04


00:14:05--> 00:14:11

The life of this world has kingdoms it has empires, and so does Jana.

00:14:12--> 00:14:15

But are they the same? Well, let's take a look.

00:14:16--> 00:14:35

As per the kingdoms of this world, look at how they are damaged by pandemics affected by war, affected by natural disasters, affected by famine, affected by economic crisis. The kingdoms of this world are limited in time in place in space.

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

They are kingdoms that bring with them anxiety, fearing for your borders. Where's the Babylonian Empire? Where is the Byzantium empire? Where are the Christian Western empires of the Western Rome, whereas the Soviet Union, whereas Adolf Hitler's Third Reich, whereas it it's all gone? These are the kingdoms of this world.

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

are limited in space and time, kingdoms of anxiety empires of deficiency. As for the kingdoms of Jannah

00:15:11--> 00:15:14

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said as Buhari narrates

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

he said luck, Abu CoCr Haddonfield Jannetty how you don't mean a dunya? When Murphy

00:15:21--> 00:15:26

the space that is occupied by a bow in Jana

00:15:27--> 00:15:31

is better than this entire world and everything within it.

00:15:33--> 00:15:37

Look at that Subhanallah for a comparison, the space occupied

00:15:38--> 00:15:46

by a boat, the footprint in Jannah equivalent to the space of a boat, what is the boat, one and a half foot by an inch?

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

That's the space of a boat.

00:15:51--> 00:16:06

I mean, you can even stand in that space with two feet. You can even stand with one foot without falling over. Yet he says that space in Jannah is better than this whole world. With its Americas with its Europe's

00:16:07--> 00:16:30

with its seascape with its mountains with its Niagara Falls, with his treasures, it's gold and silver, with this reserves, with this yachts, with its islands with its men and its women and all of its pleasures and desires. That space in general, is better than this entire world and everything within it. So if that is the nature of a space this big, what about the kingdoms of gender?

00:16:32--> 00:16:53

What about the states of gender? The Empire's agenda, the answer? Allah subhanaw taala said what if our eighth hammer, Yanni Ohnaka if you were to look over there in Jana, Allah said, or ADA nyeem And you will see the lines one will come Kabira and huge kingdoms.

00:16:55--> 00:17:18

What is inside of these kingdoms? There's buildings. We have buildings today. But what are the buildings of today? I mean, you spend the most fruitful of your youthful years toiling away slaving away, laboring away, saving penny by penny pound by pound in the hope of one day buying a flat if you have big ambitions. Maybe one day you'll buy a house

00:17:20--> 00:17:22

and most of us never achieved that.

00:17:24--> 00:17:38

And then if you do you spend the second half of your life doing what renovating, repairing, filling holes, filling cracks, restoring painting. Why? Because this is dunya it's wear and tear.

00:17:39--> 00:17:54

These are the buildings of dunya. What about the buildings of the kingdoms of Jannah Allah said WOMMA Sakeena by Yeva 10 fee Jannati I didn't they will have pleasant dwellings within gardens of eternal residents.

00:17:55--> 00:18:19

And Allah said la kini Latina taco those who are mindful of Allah. la hora full meal for PA Hora from Ebony we will give them elevated mansions constructed one on top of the other Tajiri mentality and on her beneath them rivers are flowing word Allah this is the Promise of Allah Now usually if Allah Who Had Allah never fails in his promise.

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

The buildings of dunya today are made out of as you see gypsum, plaster board masonary timber mortar cement

00:18:32--> 00:18:33

the buildings of Jana

00:18:35--> 00:18:52

Lavina to mean fit but in one there been attunement there have been one Millau to help me school asked for he said each building in Jannah is made out of alternating bricks of silver and gold, silver and gold, silver and gold. And he said the cement that connects these bricks together is pure musk.

00:18:53--> 00:19:00

Have you ever come across a binding material as cement that is a pure fragrance. How does that work out you're welcome to Jana.

00:19:03--> 00:19:16

And you know that today, there is nothing that adds to the drama and the luxury of a building. Like a like a soaring ceiling like this one over here. A vaulted ceiling. we all aspire for that but who can afford it.

00:19:17--> 00:19:37

You want a vaulted ceiling. Take a look into Jana the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in little mini Phil Jannetty Lahemaa 10 Wahida 10 Min look at in Moodle worth up to half is Santa is a tuna Mila for the believer in Jana is a pavilion

00:19:38--> 00:19:41

that is made out of a single hollowed out pearl.

00:19:42--> 00:19:53

Think about that a pavilion in Jannah made out of a single hollowed out Pearl and it is 60 miles high into the sky.

00:19:55--> 00:19:58

These are the buildings of dunya and those are the buildings of Jenga

00:19:59--> 00:20:00


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

12 raka a day that you pray from your sunnah to before Phaedra for before the whole to after World War Two after maghrib to after Aisha 12 raka of Neville a day. Allah builds for you a palace in Uganda.

00:20:16--> 00:20:24

What about the rivers of these kingdoms? Well, there are also rivers in the life of this world but what type of rivers are they?

00:20:25--> 00:20:43

They are rivers that sometimes turned green because of algae and moss and contamination. Sometimes they become polluted because of farm waste. Sometimes they flood and they devastate crops sometimes they dry up and they destroy families in the course farming these are the rivers of today.

00:20:46--> 00:20:52

As for the rivers of Jana, Allah Jalla Jalla Lu who said fie her and her own name, in Haryana seen

00:20:53--> 00:21:06

in Jana, there are rivers of water that never pollute. One how long milah Danny lamb yatta yatta Obama who and rivers of milk, the tastes of which never changes

00:21:07--> 00:21:20

will unhide on me hungry like that in the shadow ravine and rivers of wine, delicious for those who drink well and hard on me nasally most of and rivers have purified honey

00:21:22--> 00:21:26

rivers going swimming them go and drink from them go and enjoy them.

00:21:28--> 00:21:51

The rivers of today they have banks that are made out of mud and beds that are made out of mud and so the water for the most part turns turns brown the rivers of Jana, I introduced to you the river of character in that outline Erica Alcocer what is Alcocer he said Al cow Luna Harun feed Jana I'll tell her is the name of the river engender?

00:21:54--> 00:22:18

He said half that at home in the hub. The banks of that river are made out of gold. What made you rahamallah Dory? Well, Yakut and the bed of the river is of pearls and corals. What we're back to who actually Abu Meenal misc and its soil is finer than mask. One our overall Aquila amino acid and its water is sweeter than honey

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

will be able to mean FLG and it is whiter than eyes.

00:22:25--> 00:22:35

These are the rivers of dunya that flow inside of the ground. Yet Have you ever seen a river that fly that flows inversely on top of the ground?

00:22:36--> 00:22:57

Now Allah comfortable noona and Harold Jannetty Ocado don't fill up he said, Do you think that the rivers of Jannah are like the ones today trenches that flow into the earth through the earth. He said love Allah, I swear by Allah that's not the case in paradise in the Halacha. Allah watching, they flow on top of the surface of the earth.

00:22:58--> 00:23:11

The rivers of Jannah flow on top of the surface of the Earth passing through the markets and around the palaces and near the pavilions. They are there for everyone to see their water and to see their luxury and for people to drink from.

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


00:23:17--> 00:23:24

There are trees in dunya and there are trees in Ghana. Are they the same? Make the comparison and you will see.

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

As for the trees of dunya the largest living tree that is known to man so far apparently is a tree called the Hyperion tree.

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

It's around 115 meters tall.

00:23:39--> 00:23:48

So if you want it to cross its shadow from side to side, maybe you can clear it in about five minutes. Okay, huge tree.

00:23:50--> 00:23:58

Yet now I show you the trees of Jannah the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in that in Jannetty Shara in paradise there is a tree

00:23:59--> 00:24:05

Yes Your rocky will feel really Jaime Itami Lai Akbar Wa where a rider

00:24:06--> 00:24:13

will be able to travel through its shadow for 100 years that's your entire lifetime and more

00:24:14--> 00:24:18

just riding through its shadow for 100 years and he will not clear it.

00:24:19--> 00:24:28

And then he said read the ayah from the Quran where Allah said well then in them dude extended shade. In Jana there is extended shade.

00:24:29--> 00:24:47

The trees of today the muddy is part of them is the lower part of the tree the trunk. That's the darkest and muddy is usually in Jana. He said Murphy Jannetty Sharjah rotten Illa was Wuhan in the hub. Every tree in Jana has its trunk made out of solid gold.

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

For trees today, they are temperamental, they're seasonal. They give you fruit some seasons and they don't in others in Jannah Allah said Well thank you hurting Kathira so much fruit in its turn.

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

hymns love aquatint while I'm Noah, it's never seasonal, and none of it is forbidden eat and drink. These are the trees of dunya and these are the trees of Jannah.

00:25:11--> 00:25:15

That's our first stop kingdoms. Our second stop food.

00:25:17--> 00:25:31

Our ideal night out in the evening on a weekend just to go to a restaurant and eat yet some of that food causes you to vomit some of it bloats you some of it causes you heartburn somewhat some of it raises your cholesterol some of it raises your blood pressure.

00:25:33--> 00:25:41

And you're worried about your waist size, you're worried about what your wife's gonna say when she sees you putting on the kilos and this is the food of this world. And so Hannah Allah,

00:25:42--> 00:25:51

the poor, can't eat from the food they want because they don't have the money for it and the rich can't eat the food that they want because they don't have the health for it.

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

That is the menu of dunya

00:25:56--> 00:26:14

as for Jana, Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah who says, what I'm done now whom be Thank you hatin, Kathira, the dinero whom be lucky, ALLAH says who was shabu, honey and Bhima has left and fill a yarmulke and eat and drink as you wish, because of the good deeds that you did in the past.

00:26:16--> 00:26:39

In Ghana, it's not about a four or five page menu that you read in a restaurant you take it and I mean it later you're flipping it from side to side as if to say I mean is that it? Nothing else. Jana is not a four or five page menu in Jana is not about all you can eat. It's about all you want to eat. You're eating because of desire. You're not eating because of a want or a need. You're eating because of a craving a yearning, a hunger, a joy, pleasure.

00:26:41--> 00:26:43

That is the food of Jannah.

00:26:44--> 00:27:07

And you don't have to worry about your waist size and have to worry about your health. Allah has taken care of all of that for you, including the bill. It's all been written off by a rough man subhanho wa taala. Eat and drink, pick from the pomegranates pick from the palm trees, whatever wish that whatever type of fish or meat you may wish for you find it there in front of you. No cookie needed, no purchasing needed. This is the food of Jannah.

00:27:10--> 00:27:12

And then you have you have wine.

00:27:13--> 00:27:33

And this is our third stock. What is the wine of dunya as we know it today, I don't think here in the West, we really need to describe it. I think you've all seen it on a firsthand basis. What it does, it dulls your senses clouds your mind strips you from your health robs you from your money ruins your liver destroys your kidneys, the age of 20 years old, they call it having a good time.

00:27:35--> 00:27:38

By the time you hit the age of 40, they now call it disease.

00:27:40--> 00:27:48

latest research is telling us that the safest level of alcohol consumption is actually none whatsoever.

00:27:50--> 00:28:08

And then you look into the wine of Jannah that's not served in bottles or taps or barrels, served in rivers. Allah said about it left you have alone. There are no bad effects in it whatsoever. While at home and he owns a phone that doesn't intoxicate them. That's the wine of gender.

00:28:10--> 00:28:20

You've all seen that horrible site. On an evening, a young man or young woman standing outside of a bar or pub or club with one hand on the wall vomiting their guts out onto the pavement

00:28:22--> 00:28:36

because they've been consuming Niger spilt that's what it is. It's sad to see a lot of Muslims in this business, consuming it themselves serving up or selling it in their shops. It's a filth, that's the wine of dunya your Allah describes the line of gender as being what

00:28:37--> 00:28:45

was the call hombre boom, shout out to hoorah Allah who will give them a purifying drink. That's why

00:28:46--> 00:28:51

he didn't say it is pure. The hurrah means it's a purifying drink.

00:28:53--> 00:29:25

So you don't have to be carried home after drinking the wine of Jannah you don't have to worry about being told about something outrageous that you did. It's now on tick tock. You also don't have to worry about the prospect of fornicating with your mom or your auntie or your sister. That's what wine today does no in Jana. The wine is by law. I love that delicious reburied. It is white in color. And it is delicious for those who drink from it. And what is the worst part of any drink be it wine specifically or any other type of beverage? What is the worst part of the drink?

00:29:26--> 00:29:27

are brothers.

00:29:28--> 00:29:34

Is it the first part or is it the last part? Usually the last part yeah, backwash Central.

00:29:36--> 00:29:55

Yeah, interestingly agenda, the mechanics of everything is reversed. Allah said, you own a mirror Hasting Maktoum. They will be given a drink from a sealed nectar sealed no one has touched it before you a sealed nectar. Then he said What can you tell me who missed? The last sip of the drink is mask

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

what is the worst part of a drink today is the best one.

00:30:00--> 00:30:19

Out of the drink in Jana, where you finish you get to the bottom of that cup. We will describe the cups in a moment. You have this fragrance of mass that blows into your face. See tamo misc. Then Allah said Wolfie the Lika leotard. FSC modern official in this, let the competitors compete.

00:30:21--> 00:30:31

So these are the kingdoms and this is the food. This is something about the wine. What about the service Pigma we all love being soft.

00:30:33--> 00:30:36

I mean, we feel amazing going to a restaurant on a weekend.

00:30:37--> 00:31:01

We got a bit of cash in our pockets, and there's a waiter to come and help you. And for us this is like the pinnacle of honoring like, wow. Yet when you think about it, it's actually quite embarrassing. It's degrading. It's borderline humiliating, because the reality is that you can't get your food unless that waiter gives it to you. I shouldn't have waited till you to leave you have to leave otherwise the authorities coming there was no honoring about being served by a waiter today.

00:31:03--> 00:31:08

And then look at their facial expressions if you ask for one too many things, and you get on his nerves.

00:31:10--> 00:31:11

Can I have the ketchup please? Yeah, sure.

00:31:12--> 00:31:14

Okay, it's going really well today.

00:31:15--> 00:31:23

Sorry, the mail is while please yeah, sure, sir. Here. Here's the mail. Oh, sorry. napkins, napkins, napkins, napkins.

00:31:24--> 00:31:28

I've just dropped my spoon. Can I have another another spoon? Okay.

00:31:30--> 00:31:35

Can I have a highchair as well please for my child. Now he will turn around and say to you, do you think I just work for you?

00:31:37--> 00:31:39

What about all these other people I have to serve?

00:31:40--> 00:31:41


00:31:44--> 00:31:45

And then what about the service of Jana

00:31:47--> 00:31:58

Wyatt who for Halle him wind down in Mohan lagoon Allah set there will circulate among the people of Jana young boys of everlasting youth Maha lagoon everlasting youth.

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

Either at home if you were to see them.

00:32:03--> 00:32:03


00:32:05--> 00:32:26

thorough you would think that they are scattered pearls, that description La Ilaha illa Allah, you think that they were scattered pearls Yato voila. They are circulating around them all over the place, meaning they're full of energy. They're full of livelihood, they're enthusiastic. They're there just to serve you. They have nothing else to do.

00:32:27--> 00:32:40

Well done. Young boys have everlasting youth because you know how it feels to be served by someone your age or older than you doesn't quite feel right. Allah says you won't need to worry about that. There's no awkward this agenda. They're all young, and they were created to serve.

00:32:41--> 00:33:06

If you wish to see them, you'd think that they were scattered pearls. They're all over the place serving no one's chatting next to the window. No one's on his phone. No one's taking a tea break. They're scattered, they're there all over the place. And they're like pearls because as a waiter, you know, by the end of the evening, you got to go home and put your clothes in the washing you got to take a deep soak because you stink of fish or meat or steak or whatever it is that you're serving up to people.

00:33:07--> 00:33:13

Allah said no those servants of gender they're like pearls that you remain unblemished, clean, beautiful, amazing to the eye.

00:33:16--> 00:33:27

And then Abdullah he Muhammad Allah is the companion he speaks about service in gender. And he said man in Rajul in our man in San in Alien Jannetty in La Via Ali, alpha, hula,

00:33:29--> 00:33:36

Hula, hula Amin, Allah AnnaLena. Allah He saw Haibo every person in Jannah will be served by no less than 1000 servants.

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

Net that each and every one of them is doing something different to his neighbor.

00:33:43--> 00:33:48

How I mean, if I was to ask you now how would you like to be served?

00:33:49--> 00:34:08

You know, maybe you can list five ways I want to eat I want to drink. I want a comfortable bedding. And then now you got to use your imagination. If you can stretch it to 10 or 20 ways you know you're very creative, but then 1000 1000 ways of service ah that means therefore that in Jannah there are pleasures

00:34:09--> 00:34:13

and enjoyment that transcend your human imagination.

00:34:15--> 00:34:37

I mean when Allah describes the vessels, as what you will draw for I let him be any meaningful but in what aquarium you cannot power Iraq or Iran in football, that they will be drinking from cups that are made out of silver yet they are crystal clear. How is that that ilaha illallah cups that are of solid silver, yet they are crystal clear.

00:34:38--> 00:34:43

And if this is the description of the servants of Jana, as you heard Allah describe

00:34:45--> 00:34:50

what do you make of the beauty of those people of gender who are being served?

00:34:52--> 00:34:53

That is service in general.

00:34:55--> 00:34:57

What other stops do we have? Well,

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

any food or drink that you can see

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

You have to have an end product

00:35:03--> 00:35:07

and in the life of this world is quite a nasty and grotesque process.

00:35:08--> 00:35:15

So nasty that you need to take a moment to yourself. Find a secluded place to where no one can see you or hear you.

00:35:16--> 00:35:18

And it's quite a horrid process.

00:35:19--> 00:35:22

Anyway food we consume that is the outcome in dunya.

00:35:24--> 00:35:27

As for Jana, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

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

lie a balloon. No one urinate in Jannah while I don't know one defaecating JANA

00:35:36--> 00:35:53

while at falloon, no one spits in gender while I am talking tune no one blows their nose in Jana. You don't need to do any of that. He said um shout to him in the hub, there are combs they are made out of gold. What I should go home will misc and their perspiration is mask.

00:35:54--> 00:36:11

But surely there is a limit to how much you can eat. Even in Jannah Someone may say before you before it needs to go somewhere. I say to you true. But how does it work in Jannah he said some Allahu alayhi wa sallam had yet to a hottie Hemara Konya field will mean the Jessa de for either Bakugou

00:36:13--> 00:36:31

that your need for the bathroom in Jannah is in the form of light perspiration that is produced by your body and all of a sudden your stomach has shrunk and you're ready to eat again. Lo Akbar no time for bathroom. And all of that waste of time in Jannah Allah Akbar pure pleasure.

00:36:33--> 00:36:39

And I'm sure you will agree with me that the impurities of life they are not just the ones that lie here in your bowels.

00:36:41--> 00:36:47

The real impurities of life are the ones that sit here in the hearts of man.

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


00:36:51--> 00:36:53

rage, jealousy,

00:36:55--> 00:36:59

hatred of couples who are having a good married life trying to separate them.

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

Mutual competition for dunya

00:37:04--> 00:37:07

This is where the majority of filth rests

00:37:08--> 00:37:38

And subhanAllah in Jannah that has been taken out at the doorstep of Jana it is removed from their hearts. Allah said one Hosanna Murphy useful daughter him midrin We have taken out from their hearts all bad feelings, if one and other subroutine motorcar Boolean so they will be like siblings, reclining on thrones facing one another harmony, agreement, peace, unity, love, respect. These are the people of gender like siblings.

00:37:41--> 00:38:01

What about the climate of gender? Compare it with the climate of dunya I mean the climates of dunya is one that doesn't know stability, torrential rain, blistering heat. Maybe you remember the earthquakes of Haiti, the floods in Pakistan, be tsunamis of Indonesia.

00:38:02--> 00:38:06

This is the brother of dunya no stability, no consistency.

00:38:08--> 00:38:13

As for the climate of Jannah Allah says mata ki Nephi ha Allara.

00:38:15--> 00:38:34

They will be reclining on their adorned couches lie around if he has ahimsa. They don't see in Jana a son while as I'm harira and they never experienced a blistering cold. So how will they differentiate between morning and evening if there is no sun and moon, shareholder Sam even Tamia he has beautiful words.

00:38:35--> 00:39:02

And he says Lisa Phil Jannetty laid on wala Anna Harun wala shamisen wala Kumar. In Jana there is no sun and moon and day and night, while I can too often the Ashiya to well Bucherer to me nor any of her roaming paper, a lot of sheep, but people are able to differentiate between the morning and evening. Through light that they see coming from the direction of the Throne of Allah janela Gerardo that's how they differentiate between morning and evening.

00:39:04--> 00:39:17

Markets. There are markets and dunya and markets in general, are they the same? Well, the markets of dunya are as you know, fraud, deception, destroy your pricing and V rivalry

00:39:19--> 00:39:25

are things like honesty and trustworthiness are really on the list of endangered species in the markets of today.

00:39:26--> 00:39:49

Riba theft, covering up faults and defects claim claiming things that are not yours. These are the markets of today. As for the markets of Jana, it's a different story. Muslim narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a few Jannetty Sukanya two and a half equally Duma in Jana, there is a market that people visit every Friday.

00:39:51--> 00:40:00

These markets by the way, brothers and sisters, you don't go to buy things. There's no exchange of commodities and goods. You go and you take what you wish, and this is the

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

The desire of man when he goes into a marketplace, you always think, Oh, I wish I can grab that and don't have to scan it through the till. We all think that and you see that when there is a power cut or there is some sort of disruption to the store or city. What happens in these marketplaces, people go nuts. These markets you visit and you take everything you wish, and there was no price expected from you. You've paid for that in dunya.

00:40:23--> 00:40:26

He says in Jana, there is a market that they visit every Friday.

00:40:27--> 00:40:33

He said fatherhood barrio chemin, for the foofy will do him with the beam, then the northern wind blows

00:40:34--> 00:41:02

and scatters in their faces and scatters in their clothes, fires, they're doing the house in an orderly manner. And so they increase in beauty and splendor. So they go back to their families and they are in the state. And their families they say, Well hola hola is dead to Maggie and her husband were Jamala. They said by Allah, you've increased in beauty and loveliness after us. And they will say to their families in their homes, and by Allah, you have also increased in beauty and loveliness after us.

00:41:03--> 00:41:08

And by the way, what do you take from this element of beauty increasing engender eternally?

00:41:10--> 00:41:24

It means that the novelty of gender never wears off. You get a new phone, a new pair of shoes, a new item of clothing a new car. How long is it before that sense of elation goes, the novelty wears off. After how many weeks days.

00:41:25--> 00:41:37

Even marriage and the romance it comes with. They say that the half life of romance is about three months. So three months into your marriage, expect that your romance is going to be cut by about half.

00:41:39--> 00:41:55

That's dunya nothing lasts. Everything deteriorates. Everything gets boring after a while and you look for your next fix in Jannah. Eternal and things are increasing in beauty and amazement by the day. And by the by the second How is this possible?

00:41:57--> 00:42:18

And that's why you never have to worry about getting bored and I know you think about this if gender is eternal, surely I'm gonna get bored and there must be an end time. No, Allah said. clonidine, if you hear they will live there forever. niab Hoonah anha. Hayward and they don't want to go anywhere else. You will not want to be transferred from Jana.

00:42:21--> 00:42:29

These are the climates of gender and these are the markets of gender. Before we conclude what about the spouses of gender?

00:42:31--> 00:42:35

Rather people genuinely speaking in dunya what are they characterized by?

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

bodily hair?

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

Be Oh,

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


00:42:43--> 00:42:44

inappropriate sounds,

00:42:45--> 00:42:47

beer trimmings in the sink.

00:42:48--> 00:42:49

nail clippings in the floor.

00:42:50--> 00:42:51


00:42:53--> 00:43:03

sneezy. And in showing people the tissue that you've just sneezed into ask them if it's a normal color Masada not taking a shower because you've got no major plans for the rest of the week.

00:43:05--> 00:43:18

Dunya sports aging see nearly 80 illness bad moods distracted with your phone. Laziness distracted by social media distracted what your games the strategy video call

00:43:20--> 00:43:21


00:43:22--> 00:43:26

we allow that to tempt us out of our faith.

00:43:28--> 00:43:40

I know it brings with it a pleasure. We are a fitna to one another. But your Habibi if it's gonna cause you to lose your religion because of the opposite gender. Remember what I just said to you, that is what we are, at the essence of it.

00:43:41--> 00:43:45

And Allah has veiling us from our faults and our embarrassing elements.

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

These are people today and these are the spouses of dunya.

00:43:50--> 00:43:55

As for the spouses of Jana, ALLAH SubhanA wa gyla Who said

00:43:57--> 00:44:02

or the Prophet of the Allah, the Prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:44:03--> 00:44:06

there were a number of items in our lives generated by Allah.

00:44:07--> 00:44:25

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah God, ha. If a woman from the women of Jana was to look over into the life of this world, she would fill the heavens and the earth with her luminosity, and she would fill it with her beautiful scent.

00:44:27--> 00:44:28

That's just a glance.

00:44:29--> 00:44:36

And then he said well and also if hoo ha Allah Rossi ha ha Iran, Mina dunya wa Murphy, and the garment that she wears on her head

00:44:37--> 00:44:40

is better than this dunya and everything it has to offer.

00:44:42--> 00:44:49

So if that is the beauty of the garment that sits on her head, what about the beauty of the person beneath that garment? La ilaha illa Allah.

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

Allah says well hold on AIM, they are hold. Hold as some of the language they said the Ania how do we have tough meaning your eyes a wonder

00:45:00--> 00:45:22

When you look, your huddled hood they wonder in amazement Oh, where do I look at what is this La Ilaha illa Allah Subhana Allah, your heart of Hinata and then in meaning, why the lovely pleasant and wholesome eyes? Hold on aim. Allah says concerning in Maknoon they are like preserved pearls.

00:45:24--> 00:45:30

And Allah said Cana hotel yaku to one Marjon they are like rubies and corals in their beauty.

00:45:32--> 00:45:33

These are the women of Jana.

00:45:35--> 00:45:43

And as for the men of Jana, because for every one has his or her type, the men they are also a different creation.

00:45:44--> 00:46:11

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has described them as being Jodha, meaning they are free from bodily hair more than they are free from beards. Be patient with your beard, my brother while you're trying to copy that people have gender and dunya they are free from beards in Jannah not here. And then he said mocha Haleem. Their eyes are anointed with Kohonen Benissa Lathan was ALLAH theme they are at the prime age of 33 years old.

00:46:12--> 00:46:47

They are strong, they are healthy and they're fit. They don't need no vitamin D tablets. They don't need no Omega three tablets. They don't need no herbal remedies. They don't need no strange embarrassing prescriptions. Alhamdulillah they don't need to go to the gym and run on the treadmill for half an hour to get to a destination of nowhere. No, no people of Ghana the men of gender don't need any of that. Why? Because the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has described them and of gender by saying what did the interview Muhammad Brd? He I swear by the one who possesses my soul in a Honda Honda Toyota Quwata Miata Raju Lynfield. Matt KELLY Well, Marcia Robbie will share what he

00:46:47--> 00:46:51

will Jima. He said that each man in Jannah will be given the strength of 100 men

00:46:53--> 00:46:57

with respect to his appetite to eat and drink and desire and matrimonial relations.

00:46:59--> 00:47:16

They are bursting with Vitality. They are bursting with strength and liveliness. They are wholesome handsome, beautiful men. Everything that the eye of a woman desires she finds it in Jana and everything that the eye of a man desires he finds it he finds it in Janga.

00:47:19--> 00:47:20

Our 10th and final stop

00:47:22--> 00:47:23

is stress.

00:47:25--> 00:47:30

There is stress in dunya every phase of your life you are in stress.

00:47:33--> 00:47:36

The stress of going to nursery you are so comfortable at home.

00:47:37--> 00:47:42

The stress of stress of moving school you know a primary school you are comfortable in nursery.

00:47:43--> 00:48:13

The stress of secondary school you're now pubescent, you're a young man or young woman your hormones are all over the place, stress of exams and coursework and the stress of needing to get into college. The stress of getting an A level to get into uni. The stress of revision the late night work, the stress of trying to find work, the stress of saving up and the stress of paying bills and the stress of finding a spouse and the stress of having healthy righteous children stress after stress than the stress of illness and the stress of old age.

00:48:14--> 00:48:20

The stress of death. The stress of the grave distress of the Day of Judgment is one things of stress after another.

00:48:21--> 00:48:39

As for agenda. The moment their eyes hold on to the pleasures of a fair dose and the guardians of gender. What do they say? They say Alhamdulillah hinda the Sahaba Enel has an all praises due to Allah who's removed grief from us, who's removed sorrow from us.

00:48:40--> 00:49:01

In Narbonne, Allah full room Shaku indeed our oldest forgiving and grateful a lady or her Lana Darren mukaiyama Teemu fugly he the one who has allowed us to live in this place of permanence, now Jana sunnah fee Hana Cebu I am Asuna fee Hello home they say no hardship touches here and no inappropriate behavior

00:49:03--> 00:49:03

in Jannah

00:49:05--> 00:49:16

people rest and that's why when they asked Imam Ahmed him to humble O Imam, when is it that people truly rest? He said you will rest following the very first foot you take into Jannah

00:49:19--> 00:49:26

This is how the realities of things become clearer when you study the opposite as the poet who said

00:49:27--> 00:49:37

Are you pleased with the life of this world over the hereafter? What is the enjoyment of dunya in comparison to the hereafter except little?

00:49:39--> 00:49:59

When all is said and done? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says to us that everything you've heard about Jana is nothing in comparison to its reality. Because Allah said added to the Hebrew idea slowly he I have prepared for my righteous servants. No, no I you know, something that no I has ever seen. When was the last time you had a no ear has ever

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

The hard $1 Apple membership and no heart could ever imagine. Cisgender

00:50:06--> 00:50:09

is it not worth a sacrifice my dear brothers and sisters?

00:50:11--> 00:50:15

Is it not worth rearranging and reshuffling your priorities in life?

00:50:16--> 00:50:20

Is it not worth rethinking who your circle of friends are?

00:50:21--> 00:51:01

Because in the scilab Allah He highly the goods of Allah our precious innocent Appala him Jana the goods of Allah our agenda, we ask Allah to give his gender We ask Allah subhana wa Tada to give us and for those who Allah, our mothers and our fathers, our children, our scholars and our teachers and our students and all of those who have a right upon us, we ask Allah to spare us from the torment of the grave, and the difficulties of the Day of Judgment and to make us in our families to be amongst those who enter Jannah without any prior suffering or any accountability will handle in Lebanon. I mean, we hope to see you inshallah brothers and sisters in the coming lecture series.
