is m de la Sol Sol sol de la. So we've been going over this hadith

00:00:04--> 00:00:15

when we come out to the last one, and the last one is a man or woman who remembers a lot and seclusion, and their eyes welled up with tears.

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

Why would a person's eyes welled up with tears? What would be the emotions that caused that?

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

Sincerity okay

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

gratitude Why do you cry? Realization granted regret

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

realization of mercy from regrets Okay, so mercy someone said Fear

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

right fear of Allah subhana data what else? What else does a person cry? Oh

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

okay happiness Happiness so later someone has they have there's nobody's ever quite out of happiness. admiration. Do you don't remember when you got admitted into the University of Houston

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

right out of happiness. Remember that

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

hope right?

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

You want something so bad you start to cry.

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

Like I have some of the lineup assess

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

when I will work

00:01:16--> 00:01:54

was approached by law Civil Law Center because the Prophet had been sent sending. He'd been allowing and giving people permission to migrate to Medina migrate to Medina migrate to Medina, this guy's gone. This guy's gone. This guy's gone. And what was hoping that he would get to go with us on the last slide setup. And so one day in the middle of the day, at a time when they never used to have visitors. The province the liason arrives and Melissa is face is covered. And he says to a worker, so he's arriving like kind of, you know, incognito. And the province Alumni Center comes to a robot cleaning system. My Lord has commanded me to migrate. I've gotten the command. And then I've watched

00:01:54--> 00:02:22

his eldest a little longer so but am I going with you? He said, Yes. i She said, she's a young girl at the time. She said, I never understood I never imagined that a person could cry out of happiness, until I saw my father in that moment cry out of happiness. She did. And so happiness is definitely one of the reasons why Pearson can cry, a person could cry out of longing for sure. My point here from this hadith is that it's not just out of fear of Allah.

00:02:23--> 00:02:49

Normally, when this hadith, you understand that a person remembers a lot and seclusion in their eyes well up, that this would be something that is motivated by fear. It's not just fear, it could also be happiness, it could also be longing, it could also be hope. There's a wide range of emotions that could cause that. But no matter what the cause is, if a person does that, in seclusion, then in sha Allah to Allah, they will be of those who are in the shade of Allah on the day where there is no shade except for his shade. Fear

00:02:50--> 00:02:57

is a very healthy, powerful, unnecessary emotion when you're talking about worshipping Allah.

00:02:58--> 00:03:05

I know fear is out of fashion. You know, everybody wants to have a relationship. I mean,

00:03:07--> 00:03:17

people calling Allah Subhana Allah a lot of just, you know, people getting very friendly with a lie. I heard somebody say Allah is Bae once was less than them is big, just like

00:03:19--> 00:03:49

you I can understand the sentiment, but the wording is just way too comfortable for my tastes. Right? Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Lord and Allah subhanho data is, I mean, he doesn't owe us anything. And yet he commanded us to worship him. He commanded us to worship and, and the reality is those that do worship Him, He will reward them with Paradise, and those who don't worship him, Allah Subhana deitel will cast him into the fire and he will not mind

00:03:50--> 00:04:28

that's why He created it. And so a person whose heart is healthy, will carry these two things they will carry fear and they will carry hope, Fear from Allah subhana data's punishment, and hope and Allah's mercy, but that fear is not a fear that should cause them to become distant from Allah. That's really important. There are some people especially when you hear all of the verses that talk about Allah's mercy and all of the Hadith that talk about Allah's mercy and they are a lot and Allah's mercy overwhelms His wrath and we know all of that and he calls himself a man I didn't know him and these are in in fact the beginning of every surah in the Quran it's missing now Rama Rahim

00:04:28--> 00:04:34

in the name of Allah Rama Rahim like both attributes go back to Mercy. That's amazing.

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

We would think that one attribute would cover mercy we've covered that was on my mind. Now the next attribute is going to cover another aspect of of his, his of his essence of his attributes. I jump ah, this man and Kareem is Mila Rahman Al Aziz by cover something else but no. All right, man. I'm lucky. Both of them going back to Mercy indicating his incredible overwhelming

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

attributes of mercy, but at the same time, you still created the hellfire.

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

And so that is something that a person who knows Allah subhanho data and knows that we are very fast.

00:05:13--> 00:05:18

We are traveling to eternity, very quickly.

00:05:19--> 00:05:31

Your childhood has already died. That minute you became a teen, you're going to spend the rest of your life just like everybody else, wishing that they were a kid again. But that part of you is actually died, it's gone, it's never going to come back again.

00:05:33--> 00:05:55

And that's the way that we transition through this life. You graduate, that part of your time of your life where your student is gone, is ever going to come back again. You get married that time of your life where you are single, it's gone, it's never going to come back again, once you become a parent that prime of your life where you weren't attached to anybody because it's every single stage of your life a part of you dies, right? And so

00:05:56--> 00:06:06

the progress a little lighter sentences, a little mean degree, how do you mean that God constantly remember the destroyer of Delights? And these types of conversations? Like are these conversations that we have frequently with each other?

00:06:09--> 00:06:18

The I mean, these conversations are incredibly important to have. Why? Because they're the reality. Allah subhanho data says,

00:06:19--> 00:06:33

Actually, before that, Allah subhanaw taala, he says, in the realm of fossil economy apply to my own for his story, but up to an avoider could hide this amount of a benefit guava. Allah says that, you know, the Day of Judgment is their appointment.

00:06:34--> 00:06:54

And Allah Subhana Allah then describes the hellfire and the law describes Paradise and the importance of the Hereafter can be seen in almost every page of the Quran. There is some sort of mentioned in the hereafter. It is incredibly frequently mentioned. And if it's not frequently mentioned in our discourse, there is a disconnect between the way that the Quran addresses mankind and the way that we address each other.

00:06:56--> 00:07:02

A man once came to the hustle and bustle and hustle bustle, he is from Barcelona, Barcelona is Hara.

00:07:03--> 00:07:22

And Barcelona during his time was just an incredibly opulent society. They just were living lavishly. At any time, people were living lavishly, people forget about the ACA, and they just get immersed themselves in the dunya, just like us, you know, we're living more lavishly than any community ever has ever lived.

00:07:23--> 00:07:58

There's nobody who lives more luxuriously than us. We live in Houston in the winter, we turn on the heat. In the summer, we turn on AC, we, like the most wealthy people in human history still have to heat their water, you and I jump into showers and we set it to the exact temperature that we want. And we wake up in Houston, and we have lunch in LA, or we have dinner in London, like the way that we live is just incredibly, incredibly unique to all of human history.

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

And so it has an opposite of during his time when they were living very lavishly. He spent a big part of his that was just reminding them about the hereafter constantly, because you know what, if you fall in love with the dunya, it will disappoint you.

00:08:16--> 00:08:22

And a man once came to him and he said it hasn't. Sometimes we sit with people who terrify us.

00:08:23--> 00:08:36

So much so that our hearts were almost flat out of our chest. Like when they sit and they talk to us, they talk them into the brave and the day of judgment. And now fire in paradise. They talk to us about realities that are so scary, that like

00:08:37--> 00:08:50

my heart was almost flat on my chest. And he said to them, it's better for you to sit with people who would make you feel afraid until you reach security than to sit with people who make you feel secure until you reach fear.

00:08:51--> 00:09:32

It's better for you to sit with people like that. And so the challenge that I have for you guys, is that as well as the challenge for myself is that we introduce these conversations more in our day to day interaction, that our conversations not just completely be about school and work and celebrity gossip and business and swards and right. And so we think that practicing being a practicing Muslim is to at least just not indulge in everything that is haram. But just because you're not indulging in that which is how long does it mean that you're necessarily indulging in that which is most beneficial. So I want to challenge myself that I speak about that which will bring the most life to

00:09:32--> 00:09:48

my heart. And the thing undoubtedly, that will bring the most life to my heart is the hereafter. So, and we've probably quoted this hadith before, but it's incredibly important that it be really, really close to always because you're living in a time of your life. When it is very good for you to have fear.

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

It's very good because if there's one thing that will inhibit all of the passions of being young, when it is paired with all of the access of being a student at University, it is time

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

I have a lot of fear of Allah. I remember there was a friend of my very practicing guy, very wonderful brother.

00:10:07--> 00:10:22

Very religious individual, but one time, you know, he was just being straight up with me. And he said, you know, let me tell you when I was in college, the only thing that stopped me from dating or anything like that is just the hellfire.

00:10:23--> 00:10:27

That's it. Like what else would restrict a person from their passions and inclinations.

00:10:29--> 00:10:39

And it's important that a person have a regular intake a regular dosage of this information. And that's why the Hellfire has described so vividly in the Quran.

00:10:40--> 00:10:46

Allah subhana data he says, for example, the verses that we just read in the Johanna Mechanicville sada

00:10:47--> 00:10:59

lab is enough. Yeah, GABA is good if you have Alton when I show her that they will be in Johanna. Lab is enough. Yeah. They will be there for incredibly long periods of time, where they have to think about what perfect is all

00:11:01--> 00:11:16

that is open if you have more than one actual law, but they will not taste in Jannah any built any coolness when I shall not go over any drink Illa, ham, even WhatsApp I design without God. And then Allah culminates the description of Gehenna with a verse that is considered to be the most

00:11:19--> 00:11:54

like the most grievious verse that the people of the Hellfire will hear. There are verses in the Quran that are considered to be the most open new sake. And then there are verses that are considered to be the most terrifying and the scholars debate which is the most hope inducing verse in the Quran, and which is the most terrifying verse in the Quran. And the verse that as far as the ones that are most hope inducing, there's a couple of positions about them. Them is in the Lucha lair throw you shouldn't be that sort of Nyssa Allah says ALLAH does not forgive that shouldn't be associated with him, and he forgives whatever is less than that to whomever he wishes. So how does

00:11:54--> 00:12:01

that consider to be hope inducing because as long as you don't commit Schick, as long as you don't associate partners with Allah, there is the hope that

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

you will be forgiven.

00:12:05--> 00:12:37

But there's even others as well which is ALLAH SubhanA vas escudier Anybody Lydian asafoetida unforseeable Rahmatullah in Elia for Virginia. Sell my believing servants who have long themselves or my servants tell my service, not my believing service, but tell my servants who have run themselves, do not despair from the mercy of Allah. Verily, Allah forgives all says, there's not a single person here. There's not a single person that you know, there's not a single person who's alive right now 7 billion people on this earth, the most wicked individual that you can imagine, yes, the one that you're imagining right now, but worst of the worst of humanity, that person can be

00:12:37--> 00:12:39

forgiven by by some kind of data like that right now.

00:12:40--> 00:13:16

If they turned to ALLAH SubhanA data, as long as they're alive, and they don't pass away upon you shake, but if a person passes away upon disbelief, then Allah says that he will not forgive that. But even if a person passes away with every other sin, other than disbelief, other than ship, if they committed murder, and adultery and embezzlement and stole and robbed the Wealth of Nations and no matter what they did, but they die believing in Allah subhana data, then they are in a position to possibly be forgiven by Allah on the day of judgment

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

and judgment, Joseph

00:13:20--> 00:13:47

is a tyrant for the tyrants of the Muslims. This guy when you talk about tyrannical figures, and hydrogen Musa fists right at the top, his name is famous, he killed companions of the Prophet, he catapulted us the catapult at the GABA, to, to quell a rebellion by one of the companions of the Lebanese is a bad, he was just his sword was unsheath unleashed, and it was bloodthirsty. He killed many.

00:13:48--> 00:13:51

But he was also very addicted to the Quran.

00:13:53--> 00:14:18

And he would read it all the time, and actually serve the Quran very, very well, you know, the the dots that we have on the most half. These weren't originally in the Arabic script. He's the one who included in the most how the sheen has three dots on it. And the heart has a dot and the bat has a dot under it, and the noon has a.on. top of it. He's the one who introduced that before that the Arabs would read it without dots. It was just, they would naturally be able to read it.

00:14:19--> 00:14:28

And hydrogen news have served the most half greatly. And he served the woman in that capacity. In any case, when he was you know, he had killed a great scholar and saved them to Japan a couple of days before that.

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

He had killed me.

00:14:33--> 00:14:45

And so when he was passing away, he said Allahumma Gnomeo gewoon in Nicoletta fear, or Allah, they are saying, people are saying that you're not going to forgive me for food. So forgive me.

00:14:47--> 00:14:50

Imagine this person's last words being that it's like checkmate.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

Like he's just like old law. They're saying that you're not going to forgive. So forgive me. It hasn't been bustling. Now we're back to it.

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

Have some bustle and hustle and bustle. You heard those words I was told that it had judge died saying those words. And he said that I hope that's the case. I hope that Allah Subhana Allah forgive so.

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

And so having fear of Allah subhana data,

00:15:18--> 00:15:28

especially in your youth, when a person transgresses, not transgresses, but a person journeys on to be elderly,

00:15:29--> 00:15:49

then that person should have more hope in Allah subhanho data, like you're already call us here, you're on your way to meet him. But as far as this time of your life, having fear of Allah subhana data is very healthy. And it is very helpful, as long as it is healthy in a way. And that's why it's as long as it's healthy in the sense that it doesn't cause a person to

00:15:50--> 00:15:54

feel despair from the mercy of Allah.

00:15:56--> 00:16:04

A person who's 14 years old, and he comes up to me and he says, I feel like Allah subhanho data will never forgive me. Like, what did you do?

00:16:06--> 00:16:33

Like you haven't even gotten to college yet. Don't worry, there's a lot waiting for you in college. And then the college student, I feel like a lot wouldn't forgive me will never forgive me. It's like, what did you do? Like I get it, I get the college see, but there's more coming. Once you graduate. Right? You still have an oppressed people properly. I think there's a lot of oppression. That's possible. You know, there's, there's a lot and all of that is forgivable by the last panel.

00:16:34--> 00:17:07

But the condition is that a person not be playing games with God. And by games and this is what one of the greatest scholars have noted playing he talks about in detail, he says, all of these verses that talk about lost hope and His mercy and His forgiveness. And all of the great the Hadith, the prophets, little lights and obsessed. Whoever says Subhan Allah will be handy 100 times their sins will be forgiven, even if they're like the form of the sea, authentic hadith, the Prophet sallallaahu Salam mentioned many a hadith of you know, incredible forgiveness.

00:17:08--> 00:17:09

But that shouldn't make a person think,

00:17:10--> 00:17:11

okay, you know what?

00:17:14--> 00:17:17

Let me just say some How long have you been before this party real quick?

00:17:18--> 00:17:21

Like after or after the party? Obviously, sorry.

00:17:23--> 00:17:35

Right. No game says all of these ahaadeeth should inspire a person to journey towards about towards Allah. It should not be an excuse for you to flee from him.

00:17:36--> 00:17:52

I am saying that I love Allah. But everything that I'm doing indicates that I built everything that I'm doing is me trying to distance myself doing that which will push me further away from him. It's like a person saying I love my mom. So so much do you call her? No?

00:17:53--> 00:17:54

Do you listen to her? No.

00:17:55--> 00:18:11

Do you lay do anything for her? No. Do you remember her? No. But I love her so much. Well, your words and your actions are going in completely different directions. And so having and recognizing this,

00:18:12--> 00:18:51

this disconnect is very important that we don't use the verses of mercy as an excuse to sin against the loss of Hannah data, and to recognize that for every verse, and for the Hadith that talks about mercy and forgiveness and all of that, there are also a lot of a hadith and verses that talk about threat. So for example, the province of the light is and the meat says authentic as well. That whoever drinks and intoxicating this world, whoever drinks in a toxic and then this world's gonna help an awful lot that it is upon Allah subhana data that they drink from the lead of insanity and the hellfire. They said well, what's the mode of insanity? He said, It is a drink that is made from

00:18:51--> 00:18:53

the past and the filth of the people of the Hellfire.

00:18:55--> 00:18:58

The province of a lady have said and he says

00:18:59--> 00:19:01

that the people of the Hellfire

00:19:05--> 00:19:46

before that ALLAH SubhanA data says about the hellfire. He thought I told me McCain and buried in Samiullah hatherleigh. You will one was I feel that on the Day of Judgment. When the Hellfire itself sees mankind. They will hear the high yield lay this complete anger and wrath that the people on the day of gentlemen will hear the wrath and the anger of the hellfire and they will hear the whistling of the Hellfire. And the Hellfire itself has 70,000 chains, the profits of the lightest and them set each chain with with bridles and each bridle being held by 70,000 Angels. They're actually holding the Hellfire back because the Hellfire just wants to consume all of the children of Adam wants to

00:19:46--> 00:19:51

consume everybody. And this Hellfire where the other Billa that when it is

00:19:52--> 00:19:56

when people are cast into it, it will be sealed. The promise that will lie to us and then he says

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

or Allah Subhan

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

No data he says I didn't even know most Allah. That the Hellfire is a Hellfire that is sealed. Everybody will was cast into it, they will be sealed in the hell frack by that we're lucky that the still good luck with them oh my god colliding, that when they enter into the hellfire, their feet will never become firm on solid ground ever again.

00:20:18--> 00:20:23

For everybody who hates turbulence and everybody who hates heights and everybody who hates

00:20:25--> 00:20:53

lattice stuff good luck with that moment. Remember that their feet will never become firm on solid ground again. But I will let you know that whenever you have a body that body the shoulder never in the Hellfire tastes don't cold drink ever again. Allah says in the Quran, nya whatever you have often when I show up, I forgot to mention the verse that was the most terrifying and the most terrifying verses in the Hellfire is ALLAH SubhanA goddesses and sort of that never go home for them as either Camila dabba tastes because we will never increase you in anything more than punishments.

00:20:56--> 00:21:03

Why is that the most terrifying divorce the scholars said, Because humanity has the ability to

00:21:05--> 00:21:35

absorb and survive the most difficult circumstances. We have survived plagues, we've survived. Genocide, Holocaust, we've survived natural disasters, we've survived, we've survived everything. And the thing that allows us to survive is the notion that if I just hold on just a little bit longer, I just hold on tomorrow will be a better day

00:21:36--> 00:21:46

will be better for my children, this notion called the human spirit. But in the Hellfire is where that human spirit comes to die. They won't die it will be broken.

00:21:47--> 00:22:03

When it is said to them tastes you will never increase repeat increase in anything greater than more than punishment. That's the only increase you're gonna get. There's more punishment. Your tomorrow will be worse than your today and you're after tomorrow will always be worse than your tomorrow. It will never get better for the people to help.

00:22:05--> 00:22:08

And so a question then becomes, well

00:22:10--> 00:22:14

why is all of this why all of this punishment for them?

00:22:15--> 00:22:42

I remember once I was in thought it was the fifth night of Ramadan, and salt and missa was being recited and sort of thing is that has some of the most vivid descriptions of the Hellfire that you'll come across in the Quran. Allah says Kula nanoliter jerudong But then now Angelou them Leila Hugo parada every time their skin is roasted. And my biology people my pre med people what do you what do you have in your skin?

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

Every time your skin is roasted a loss as

00:22:48--> 00:22:52

we replaced them with new skin that they may taste the punishment

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

your nurse

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

is it below the skin?

00:22:59--> 00:23:00

Am I speaking English?

00:23:03--> 00:23:07

Okay, let me take this back Forget it. Let me let me go back to my business majors.

00:23:08--> 00:23:48

Every time their skin is roasted ALLAH SubhanA data says they're tasted was another way to teach the punishment and I remember thinking to myself That's really severe, very severe and of course in the Hadith literature, the prophet sizes and tells us stuff to the Rashid again. I mean the the disbeliever on the day of judgment or in the in Jannah that their their their seating place like how you're seeing place right now, whatever space you're taking the seating place of the disbeliever in the How far will be like what is the distance between Mecca and Medina? That they're huge, they're gigantic, and the molar tooth of the disbeliever now fire will be like the mountain but it will be

00:23:48--> 00:23:52

the size of a mountain. Why are they going to be so great in their in their sizes,

00:23:54--> 00:23:55

greater surface area

00:23:56--> 00:23:58

for them to taste the punishment.

00:23:59--> 00:24:16

And so with all of that philosophy Hana goddesses taste we will not increase you in anything more than punishment and I remember thinking to myself, I mean this is just severe so within yourself ALLAH SubhanA data that says in them when I felt the unit later on in them one after the infidelity that's very minute not that the hypocrites are in the lowest

00:24:17--> 00:24:25

station of the Hellfire, they're in the lowest level of the Hellfire. And I remember having that thought. last verse fifth, just last line.

00:24:27--> 00:24:28


00:24:29--> 00:24:37

says and whenever you have like verses of the Quran, respond to your thoughts and Salah it is a very intense experience.

00:24:38--> 00:24:41

Allah says my if I will look at daddy, let me check out

00:24:42--> 00:24:54

what does Allah benefit from punishing you? If you show gratitude, and you have faith, what kind of Allah who check in on it? And the lifespan of that is shocking and

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

what does Allah benefit from all of this hellfire and ease

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

benefit in my thought allah God, Allah benefit from punishing you. If you had shown gratitude, it's like I'll give you an example.

00:25:11--> 00:25:16

The easiest professor here, the one who's the absolute easiest, the guy who or

00:25:18--> 00:25:22

over the, the one who is the most,

00:25:23--> 00:25:27

like the easiest eight, there's got to be one professor was just like the highest rank done.

00:25:30--> 00:25:40

As far as these goes, right? The one who everybody makes sure to take a class with for an easier you have a friend who you tell, take this class with this professor, it is impossible for you to fit.

00:25:42--> 00:25:46

They are the easiest a you will have in all four years that you're here.

00:25:47--> 00:25:50

And your friend says challenge accepted and they fail.

00:25:54--> 00:25:56

In that moment, who are you going to blame?

00:25:57--> 00:26:00

Are you blaming the professor like how did you feel this person?

00:26:02--> 00:26:11

Are you looking at your friend like Dude, how did you possibly fail? The easiest professor that you'll ever have?

00:26:14--> 00:26:17

And so when people look at this notion of the Hellfire,

00:26:18--> 00:26:23

and they say, How does Allah subhanaw taala cause people to enter into the hellfire.

00:26:24--> 00:26:42

The question that should be asking is how does a person end up in the Hellfire in the first place? Like how much ingratitude must a person show? How much arrogance must a person have, that they end up in the Hellfire when Allah Subhana Allah made it, so that if you do a single good deed,

00:26:44--> 00:26:56

it is multiplied by 10, it is multiplied by 700, it is multiplied by more than that. And if you don't even do a good deed, and you simply intend the good deed, you get one reward. And then if you intend to do a sin, and then you change your mind,

00:26:57--> 00:27:08

because of your luck or your conscious kicks in, then that intention of a sudden becomes a good deed. And then number four, if you intend to do a sin, and then you knew it, it becomes

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

one set.

00:27:12--> 00:27:45

Like the deck is so stacked in our favor, it's unbelievable. Every the need that you do, it's multiplied and multiplied and multiplied every cent that you do. If it can be changed, it's changed and if a can be recorded, or if it must be recorded, then it's only recorded as one. And yeah, a person like that still ends up in the hellfire. And the Lord who is judging them is more merciful to them than their parents, as I didn't ever find, I don't think a lot of music, he said that if I knew that my own mother was going to judge me I would refuse on the Day of Judgment. Now until only a lot because I know a lot of Hannah dad is more merciful to me than my own mothers.

00:27:47--> 00:28:10

And so, but even with all of that a person should be very, very afraid of their sins, person should be very, very afraid of their mistakes. Allah subhana data says, I saw one witness who sort of the Mujaddid of assets, Allah has encompassed their mistakes, their sins, their shortcomings. Allah has encompassed it, and they have forgotten it. The scary thing is that the vast majority of our sins, we forgot

00:28:11--> 00:28:20

the day to day stuff, the first time, maybe the first time is memorable, but the second and third, fifth and seventh and 23rd and

00:28:21--> 00:28:40

right these, these all just become a blur. But Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah has recorded it. Allah has encompassed it, and they have forgotten it. And so the scary thing is on the Day of Judgment, a person show up. And all of these things that they've long forgotten about, are presented to them.

00:28:41--> 00:28:45

The prophets of Allah, Allah who said, Let me assess if you knew what I

00:28:46--> 00:29:05

if you knew what I know, you would have left very little, and you have cried very much. And you would have not taking pleasure in intimacy with your spouse's. And you would have gone out into the mountains out on a villa just calling up told us

00:29:06--> 00:29:17

like you would have retired you would have quit everything you would have just went out into the deserts just pleading with Alaska data for the rest of your life. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he also says

00:29:20--> 00:29:28

about the value of this tear, he says there are two eyes that will not enter into the Hellfire

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

an eye that cried for the sake of Allah and then I that stayed awake, guarding the Muslims. These two and so you have a What did they call those people? A person who was on Nightwatch Nightwatch century, a century right person who's guarding a border

00:29:48--> 00:29:58

that's what I loved about visiting and message them actually in revolt. Revolt means that you are you are guarding the property of the Muslims and the prophets Allah lie to us.

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

He said

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

As that

00:30:01--> 00:30:05

this AI that stays awake, guarding the Muslims

00:30:07--> 00:30:37

that AI is an AI that will not touch will not be touched by the hellfire. And so having this fear of Allah subhanho data as well as hope and Allah the Prophet satellite is in the assessment haha it Mitch, this hadith is in Timothy to a hadith that are both intimidate the promise of lightness. And then he says that HOFA intellectual women either they're better than men see, he says that whoever has fear will journey through the night. I love this hadith. It's so vivid, that whoever has fear will journey through the night.

00:30:38--> 00:30:40

What does that mean? We'll journey through the night.

00:30:42--> 00:30:48

Whoever has fear will journey through the night and whoever journeys through the night will reach their destination. Let's say for example, you have a job interview in Dallas.

00:30:49--> 00:31:02

Right now it is 636 You have a job interview tomorrow morning at 10am in Dallas. Really important job interview. What time would you go? It's 630 right now.

00:31:03--> 00:31:07

And it's at 10am. Dallas is four hours away.

00:31:09--> 00:31:11

What time would you go? What time would you leave?

00:31:14--> 00:31:15

Believe yesterday?

00:31:18--> 00:31:21

Like I mean, don't you go now? Okay. Not tomorrow. Well, why

00:31:22--> 00:31:28

is there anybody who would wait till 6am 6am? And then just head out? None of you, you know, you've encountered?

00:31:32--> 00:31:34

Wow, you'd missed the job interview?

00:31:35--> 00:31:39

For 430. You leave at like 400? No

00:31:40--> 00:31:42

way. I'd be too tired.

00:31:43--> 00:31:54

Okay, that's true, too, right? You might not hear the alarm. You might hit a detour. You might hit a detour. Traffic might get a flat.

00:31:55--> 00:31:59

Is it possible that you leave at 430? And you get there at 830? And you're all good?

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


00:32:01--> 00:32:05

But what type of personality would you have to be to be able to pull that off?

00:32:07--> 00:32:09

committed, committed?

00:32:12--> 00:32:22

Or you'd have to have but the more afraid a person is the more like it is valuable to them. The more they

00:32:24--> 00:32:41

will leave in the night. And that's what the province allies enemies say, but Hoffa electrica. Whoever is afraid, will journey through the night. What does that mean? Well, journey through the night journey through the night also means it's also not just, Hey, I'm leaving for Dallas right now. It is. I'm leaving for

00:32:44--> 00:32:46

Chicago, okay.

00:32:48--> 00:32:52

I'm leaving for Chicago, and I'm leaving tomorrow morning. And it's, what, 12 hours, 15 hours.

00:32:54--> 00:32:56

Nobody's been to Chicago, which is fine. I mean,

00:32:57--> 00:32:58


00:32:59--> 00:33:09

You're leaving at 8am. nightfall comes at 8pm. You're 12 hours away. I'm just making up places. Now you're in Memphis. Okay. Let's say you're in Memphis.

00:33:10--> 00:33:16

Now you have a choice. You can spend the night in Memphis. Or you can just say, You know what?

00:33:17--> 00:33:20

I'm tired. I'm exhausted. But we're going to keep going.

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

We're gonna keep going.

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

That person is the person now who's pulling back to back shifts? Why are they pulling back to back ships, because they're burning rubber. They're running on empty. They're just trying to get to their destination.

00:33:38--> 00:34:15

And that also is what the province of the lies that are missing is that whoever is afraid, that person will just keep going, they will persevere. They will run on IE they will keep and keep and keep going. Why? Because whoever does that, they're the ones who will get there. Any obstacles hit them in the road, guess what? They will be left enough time. Right? They are the ones who get to the destination. And then he says and in necie la to La Jolla. It's very beautiful. He says the commodity of Allah is the product of Allah is very expensive. What's Allah selling to us?

00:34:17--> 00:34:39

In messy Latin like agenda, what we are trying to buy through this temporary stage that you and I have, what we are trying to purchase for ourselves is not a job is not some sort of the opportunity ahead is genuine forever and ever and ever. So that is the thing that is most worthy of us putting in

00:34:41--> 00:34:52

extra effort, putting in extra energy. And another way that this could be understood or another aspect of this is that it's also in regards to my life.

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

There are lots of people, lots of people who are like, You know what, I'll repent to Allah subhana that after college

00:35:01--> 00:35:03

Let me just live it up right now.

00:35:04--> 00:35:12

But man haha glitch, but whoever is afraid that person will journey through the night they'll start right now they won't wait till tomorrow morning.

00:35:14--> 00:35:38

They won't wait till the graduation. They won't wait till they get married they won't wait until they become really really older until they go to Hajj none of that is guaranteed. None of that is guaranteed. And so whoever starts now that person is going to reach their destination because the commodity of Allah is expensive. The commodity of Allah is Jana. The last hadith is hadith of ultimate

00:35:41--> 00:35:43

ask the prophets double mighty ascended up.

00:35:44--> 00:35:53

Men Naja is last reported by Timothy he said what is ninja? What is salvation? Tell me what salvation is. And the promise of life and me then mentioned three things. He said.

00:35:55--> 00:35:59

I I'm sick, I Lika designer, he said, guard your tongue.

00:36:01--> 00:36:23

When we're talking about the hellfire, the thing that causes the most people to enter into the Hellfire is the tongue, the tongue and the private parts. I'm amazed that people do not consider what they say to be part of their actions. How many times have you seen that a person will tweet something that is just vulgar, vile.

00:36:25--> 00:36:28

And because they're tweeting at a celebrity, it doesn't count.

00:36:29--> 00:36:32

No, it does count. I had a friend of mine

00:36:33--> 00:36:35

who were sitting in the car.

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

Great brother. First Eurasia domestic every single day. Always helpful Family Guy like he's not, you know, a young kid. I mean, the guy's the guys are mad.

00:36:50--> 00:36:54

And he's on the phone. And he's just kind of giggling to himself.

00:36:57--> 00:37:03

And I'm like, what's going on? And he's like, Oh, nothing. I'm like, No, what's going on? And then he says, You know, I just kind of liked

00:37:05--> 00:37:10

I like to comment on YouTube videos and like, tell people that their kids are ugly.

00:37:17--> 00:37:18

You're a troll.

00:37:23--> 00:37:24

What are you doing that like this?

00:37:26--> 00:37:29

Like I was shocked, because

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

you would never have expected.

00:37:33--> 00:37:36

This is a this is a very, like intelligent,

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

caring, helpful, responsible individual. Meanwhile, he's got this little thing that he's doing online, not again, this connecting, not thinking that his his words actually matter. And that's when when I did Mujibur, he asked socialists, I said, No. He said, Yes, we are we held accountable for what we say and the promise of the lightest. And then he said to him, thank you, let's go home again. What may your mother lose you What else will cause people to enter into the Hellfire other than the harvest of their cups? And mad social media just taking this to another level? People are so

00:38:14--> 00:38:15


00:38:16--> 00:38:24

They are so hateful. They're so angry there. So has anybody here ever debated somebody and you guys had a wonderful conversation on social media?

00:38:27--> 00:38:30

Where we were one of you change your opinions. You're like, you know what, you're right.

00:38:32--> 00:38:41

That never happened. Maybe it's happened to some of you, I don't know. But it's incredibly rare. And now this brings me to one of my favorite Hadith.

00:38:42--> 00:38:49

And I apply this to social media, the province of a lighthouse and what he says Men second and Budhia Jaffa,

00:38:51--> 00:38:54

that whoever lives in the desert becomes harsh.

00:38:55--> 00:39:25

You know, desert dwellers, Bedouins, they're not known for being refined. They don't know how to say please, and thank you. They don't know how to say, you know, I love you. They don't know how to say they don't know these types of phrases because they're out in the desert. It's very, very harsh as an environment and so they become harsh in their nature as well. And so they come the Bedouins come and they grab us loss, I send them by his collar and they pull it the yank it not because they're intending disrespect. It's just they they're, they're not civilized.

00:39:27--> 00:39:47

They don't know how to act. And so the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim is commenting on how our social environments affect our personalities. He says that whoever lives in the desert becomes harsh. And guess what? We are living in a desert. Because social media is an experience where we're all alone together.

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

And people don't know how to talk to each other and people don't know how to speak and it's just, it's amazing. I mean, it's just baffling. How aggressive normally intelligent

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

and caring and gentle people are online I saw when

00:40:06--> 00:40:15

conversation once. I don't remember what it was about someone said something. And then another person commented and said, Well, I think otherwise. And then another person said, Well, you're the problem.

00:40:17--> 00:40:24

Really, they just became the problem that quickly. You are the problems. People don't even know each other. Anyway, that's a different discussion.

00:40:26--> 00:40:27

Anyway, so

00:40:29--> 00:40:38

the tongue of the Prophet saw the light, isn't it the first thing he said to me now, but it's I'm saying it at least on a guard your tongue. If you want to be saved on the Day of Judgment, the to

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

the the self, they used to exercise something called a summit. A Summit is different than Sukkot, they both mean silence. But silent, is silence when you have the ability to speak.

00:40:53--> 00:41:01

Like I can speak, I can respond, I can make that joke. I can make that comment, I could make that but I am choosing

00:41:02--> 00:41:30

to not speak. I can flex, I can show my articulation, I can be the life of the party, I can do all of these things. But I am choosing to tame my tongue and tame my ego, because all of these words will matter on the Day of Judgment. So number one is I'm sick, I did any sign up. Number two will use activator and let your house suffice you let your house suffice you a lot of different ways that this can be understood. Number one worry about yourself.

00:41:32--> 00:41:56

Like you've got enough going on in your house, instead of you worrying about and by worrying, I don't mean, like, you're talking about gossip, right? It's not like something is happening that needs to be corrected in the community. But we're just talking about just hearsay, she say this not this person that like worry about what's going on in your life. Where are your goals? Where are your What's up with your family?

00:41:57--> 00:42:03

What are your soccer number to go other way this is gonna be understood, is be satisfied with what you have.

00:42:04--> 00:42:34

Be satisfied with what you have your house, let it suffice you. I've got an apartment, and I have an apartment. I've got a one bedroom. That's amazing. No less Pano data, less my family as we live in this one bedroom, and we're five brothers and you know, we're all switching places on the couch and all that type of stuff. That's wonderful. I have a house that hadn't been loved my gave me a house, I have a car that breaks down. I say Bismillah every time I started, I have no idea if I'm getting to school or not. You know, what, may Allah bless the dog couldn't move, you know, watch panel data, whatever.

00:42:36--> 00:42:37

Whatever I have,

00:42:38--> 00:42:50

let it suffice. Let me be happy with it. And again, the key to that is the profits of the lightest and obsessed owns little 11 Who are spared, I mean, come look at those who have less than and don't look at those.

00:42:52--> 00:43:02

Because that will make you more inclined to not reject the favorites of God. If I am always looking at who has more and more and more and more than I'm always going to be not satisfied because I'm always looking at

00:43:03--> 00:43:19

this individual and that individual and this person is sick or on page and that person's this and that and I'm never want to be satisfied. And I'm never going to be happy. But let your house suffice you let what you have be enough for you. And number three, he says what gather humbly ethic and cry over yourself.

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


00:43:23--> 00:43:27

And if I can't cry, then let me force myself to cry.

00:43:28--> 00:43:42

Let me sit by myself with no one there and let me cry. And if I can't cry, but let me cry over the fact that I can't cry. The progress on why certain Musa seek refuge and a lot from it that does not tear

00:43:44--> 00:43:45

a heart that is not humbled.

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

And so

00:43:48--> 00:43:54

recognizing sub diagnosing it doesn't mean that a person you know.

00:43:58--> 00:44:16

But does the Secretary used to have a habit of the line from I mean, every single one of them from the toughest of the tough American football frequently prying of a worker as a man as man sat at a grave and he wept until his beard became wet. All of the I didn't ever thought it crying in the knife making can we learn It's all recorded I shot all the law and all of them.

00:44:18--> 00:44:36

And so if I can go for years and years without having shed a single tear not in fear, nor in longing of ALLAH SubhanA data, let me sit with myself and remember my sins. And that could be of the healthiest things that a person does for themselves spiritually, they sit, they remember their sins, they make a lot of stuff. And they cry over it.

00:44:37--> 00:44:38

A lot.

00:44:41--> 00:44:42


00:44:43--> 00:44:50

Anything you guys would like to share about this on this topic?

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

Well, that's fair enough. Let me see here.

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

Gotta hit everything that I wanted to

00:45:09--> 00:45:10

Oh, one last thing I'm sorry

00:45:14--> 00:45:17

one last thing we're gonna let you guys off that easily

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

now actually

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

on the line
