Haiti in our email McCain nabina. Muhammad Anwar Allah early he was a woman. We had he was still inhibition that he he laomi Dean, a mother I do. A Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

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

is a pleasure for me and hamdulillah to be here in Perlis for the first time, I hope not the last time but we will happen and see Inshallah, depending on the results, no clapping please note that everything will be fine inshallah.

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

So, the topic is not a topic of,

00:00:42--> 00:01:21

let's say entertainment, it's a topic related to our pizza, which is the most important thing in life which most of us may not realize that what makes it or breaks it is your Arcada This is what the messengers of Allah azza wa jal fought their people for, not for wealth, not for property, not for peace of land, only for al Qaeda. And this is what people are fighting us for, for our beliefs for our app EDA and a huge part of our Arcada is allow for Raja,

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

the fear of Allah azza wa jal and the hope in Allah subhanho wa taala. And this is mentioned in the Quran in black and white. Clearly, anyone who reads the Quran, or claims to be a Muslim, and contemplates about a Quran finds this clearly mentioned in the Quran, let alone the Sunnah. But the Quran is the thing that nobody disputes upon even the people of Bidda. So what does Allah azza wa jal say about this topic? Allah describes the messengers and prophets of Allah by saying,

00:02:03--> 00:02:49

first agenda Allah, what will happen Allah Who yeah, here was na Allah who was in Hong Kong who you share your wonderful highlight. Why are the Runa Robin whare Harbin what can we learn Akashi. So Allah says indeed, these messages and prophets of Allah, they used to Hastin to good deeds, and supplicate us in hope and fear. So this is how the messengers of Allah used to supplicate to Allah azza wa jal in hope, but also in fear. So in order to know how to balance between these two, we have to understand what is meant by them. So what is fear?

00:02:51--> 00:03:27

Fear of Allah is to expect something bad to happen. In general fear is when you expect something bad, or to miss something that you love and want. Because there is speculation about it, there is a sign that may direct to that intuition. And it is that trembling trembling of the heart and being unable to be steady.

00:03:28--> 00:04:02

And this is what fear usually means. It's the opposite of to be secured. So when you are secure, you're safe. You're not afraid. When you're afraid, you're not safe. And the fear of Allah azza wa jal is the sign of believers. It is the way those who have knowledge have towards Allah subhanho wa taala. As Allah mentioned, in nama Yasha, Allah has been a bad

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

rule. Verily, only those among Allah has servants that fear Him most are the scholars. So Allah limited the actual knowledge in those who fear him the most.

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

And the fear of Allah is an indication of the purity of the heart and the sincerity of the soul. It has an importance, great importance in Islam, because it pushes people to doing good deeds and protecting them from sins. It is one of the most important obligations in our religion, because it has consequences when you have fear from Allah azza wa jal

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

Nakai M says, the stage or Manzella of fear is the highest and most important in Islam and it's the most beneficial to your heart. It is a fault upon every single individual

00:05:20--> 00:05:21

and it was

00:05:23--> 00:05:46

ordained and instructed in the Quran. Allah says Allah Taha, for whom? Wa phony encounter many do not fear them and fear me if you are believers, which means that a sign of you being a movement is that you fear Allah if you don't fear Allah you're not. And

00:05:48--> 00:05:54

Allah azza wa jal described, the messengers of Allah as Warner's

00:05:55--> 00:06:01

Monday the rain, they warn you, and when you are warned, you're afraid.

00:06:02--> 00:06:15

They warn you from Allah. So you fear Allah, they warn you from the torment of health. So you fear help you they warn you from the day of judgment, where you are accountable, so you must be afraid.

00:06:16--> 00:06:17

And Allah azza wa jal

00:06:18--> 00:06:24

complimented and praised the people of fear in the Quran.

00:06:26--> 00:06:27

Allah says,

00:06:29--> 00:06:34

Indeed, they who are apprehensive from fear of their Lord,

00:06:35--> 00:06:58

and they who believe in the signs of their Lord, and they who do not associate anything with their Lord, and they who give what they give while their hearts are fearful, because they will be returning to their Lord, it is those who Hastin to good deeds, and they outstrip others that in

00:06:59--> 00:07:43

all these beautiful signs and descriptions of this area, Mother Aisha came to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, instead of Prophet of Allah, these people who are afraid and they do this and are they those who for negate, and steal, and do since the Prophet said no, or daughter of acidic, they are those who fast pray and give charity but they are afraid that Allah would not accept from them. Allah Iike you sir Your owner Phil Herat it is those who haste into good deeds and they outstrip are those that in

00:07:44--> 00:07:59

these is describe those who are fearful, yet they do a lot of good deeds. Are we like that? Seriously? Do we do what they do? And we're afraid

00:08:00--> 00:08:11

one of us may finish the Quran once every three four years. And we feel boastful about it and tell everybody about it. Maybe do a party and invite people

00:08:13--> 00:08:18

Subhanallah yet when we make sense, we're not afraid.

00:08:19--> 00:08:32

People go to hedge and come back. They should be on the straight path nowadays. Keep on doing since they go for O'Brien come back, and they indulgent sins. What are you doing? Is it I have credit?

00:08:34--> 00:09:07

What do you mean was I did good deeds? I did I did. I have credit? Yeah. Okay, this is not a mobile phone you top up. This is between you and Allah azza wa jal. You have to be fearful. You pray tahajjud before Fajr 510 minutes before Fajr can be as humble as Harry. Yes, don't have your own. What do I do the righteous do they pray to three hours 200 Just before Fajr or than by 1015 minutes. They ask Allah for forgiveness for what?

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

For our shortcomings, you just pray three hours tahajjud Yes. You don't know if Allah is going to accept it. We do what we do and we boast. I'm a renowned scholar.

00:09:21--> 00:10:00

I'm an international speaker. I am I have credit, I can do whatever I want. This is wrong. You should feel very small of yourself. You should feel that Allah who will not accept your deeds. This would make you reach safety. But the moment you do something good while I gave 100 drinks to a poor person. I feel good about it. Feeling good is not bad. Is it accept it? Of course it's accepted. I did it for Allah, Allah will accept it. No. You're now you have to be fearful that Allah may not accept it. And this is the difference between

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


00:10:01--> 00:10:55

righteous people and hypocrites. Al Hassan Al buslee says, They, that is the righteous people did good deeds and did their best in these good deeds while being afraid that Allah who rejected the believer combines between good deeds and the fear of Allah. While the hypocrite combines between sins, and being safe and secure from Allah Stormont and punishment, this is how we are unfortunately, today. Fear that is genuine and praised, is what prevents you from doing sin. This is what is Allah wanting from you to have this fear that stops you. Why don't you pray Fudger in Masjid, Masjid is next door.

00:10:57--> 00:11:05

It's the bed is cozy, their condition is cold, and I feel good sleeping. You don't have fear.

00:11:06--> 00:11:57

Then you are you have problems. Your Fear takes you out of your bed to go and pray in the masjid. Your fear makes you turn off the music when it's playing in the car. Nobody's going to be in the car why that? Dance and your fear makes you cancel your Netflix and Showtime subscription and all the Haram because I fear Allah azza wa jal, I don't want to go to hell. This is the true genuine fear. And when you say genuine fear, does this mean that there are types of fears? Yes. There are types of fears there is the mandatory fear. What is that? This is the fear that obligates you to do man mandatory things and prevent you from falling in Haram. You have this fear you go to Jannah that's

00:11:57--> 00:12:47

cool. Yeah, this is the minimum the bare minimum fear. Bare minimum. It prevents me from going to hell yes. But it is bare minimum because a better form of fear is the recommended fear and what is that? It is the fear that makes you do more. Yes, you did the obligations. Did you pray the Sunnah 12 Raka. No, Allah made five prayers mandatory per day. Yeah, but the sooner is a higher level. I never knew that. It builds your house in Jannah 12 like as a day that's easy. I'll do it. Do you fast Mondays and Thursdays? Why would I do that? I fast every Ramadan. Yeah, but if you fast Mondays and Thursdays, Allah azza wa jal would look at your deeds every Monday and Thursday and approve it.

00:12:48--> 00:13:46

And the Prophet Allah is awesome said about Monday it's a day I was born in and it's a day I was revealed to in so I love to fast it huh? Okay. So this fear gives you an edge. Okay, this is number two. Number three, the fear of the incompetent, the fear of the lazy ones. This is your fear in mind. What a fear is that, this is the fear we get when we listen to reminders. reminders are like a whip. When someone flogs you you feel the pain in your hurting. After a day or two, the pain is gone. And you forget, so you need another whip. And the third and the 10th these reminders, these gatherings we come to attend, to soften our hearts and to know our religion more. These are whips.

00:13:46--> 00:13:59

In them, we have this incompetent fear, where we fear Allah azza wa jal, we feel remorseful and we may cry and we try our level best. And as as soon as we go,

00:14:01--> 00:14:04

light the cigarette and enjoy life.

00:14:05--> 00:14:38

This fear is good, because it's temporary. And it might work. It might extend a little bit maybe sometimes it extends for a whole week. hot button Joomla is a beautiful occasion to attend every week. Some of us benefit the whole week. So it's like recharging. So you are fully charged the full week. And once the battery goes down before the red, you attend the following Joomla and you recharge again.

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

The fourth type of

00:14:42--> 00:15:00

fear is the prohibited fear of there is a prohibited fear. Yes, when you go overboard This is the fear of Al Hawa ridge. When you feel that Allah is not going to forgive me when you feel no matter what I do.

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

Do Allah who will put me in hell, this causes, and I do this. In my counseling sessions, I have counseling sessions every day with people, of course paid are not free.

00:15:13--> 00:15:40

Let's things be clear. I don't waste half an hour of my time for free, except sometimes, but you want to sit with me for half an hour you have to pay. So they come to me, share. I have this fear of Allah and they speak and they vent. But I don't let them vent for more than four minutes because the time has value and I don't want to waste your time I could listen for you for half an hour. It's a joke. It's like, get another session and pay me more.

00:15:41--> 00:15:56

What is the problem? Look how shaytan works. shaytan comes to you from a very good door, the door of the fear of Allah, who hates feeding Allah is a good door. But then he opens it

00:15:57--> 00:16:42

to an extent you cannot close it. And what happens? He says to you, there is no hope for you. But I'm afraid of Allah. I say Shahada 50 times a day why? I someone said something. I smiled, throw a committed shake. Someone says something and I thought of the Prophet in a negative way. So I committed Cofer. So he says to hit the 50 times a day he takes a shower five times 10 times a day hustle, do embrace Islam. After two three weeks, he gets despaired of Allah's mercy, Allah is not going to forgive me. Shaytan says yes, Allah is not going to forgive you what to do? Leave salah. Wallahi they come to me in the hundreds. They don't pray. They don't fast. They don't believe in

00:16:42--> 00:16:50

Islam, but they cry like babies in the session. I don't want to go to him. Don't cry, you are in hell.

00:16:52--> 00:17:20

This is called shock therapy. You smash them on the face and they smash them again the face. They wake up. They need this by the way. So I said you weren't sure how you don't pray? I'm afraid. No, no, no, you're not afraid of Allah. You are afraid of Allah, you pray today. Some of them are afraid of death. This is another negative fear. I had a brother from the Gulf. He came to me in a session. And we have time.

00:17:22--> 00:17:54

Before lunch, no problem. So he came to me. And he was terrified. He looked like a pale chicken. I don't know how a pale chicken looks. But yeah, you understand? So what's the problem? He said, I have this fear of death. Three years, I've been restless. My wife divorced me. Because of it. I lost my job. I lost half of my weight chef. And for the past four weeks, I cannot take a shower. Also, I do not pray.

00:17:55--> 00:17:59

And I said How long have you had this? Is it three years? And is it Did you die?

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


00:18:03--> 00:18:06

of course not said you stupid, moron.

00:18:07--> 00:18:14

Because why? said if you did not die in three years, what will happen? 15 years and you don't die.

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

Like I said

00:18:17--> 00:18:42

you're going to live like this for 15 years is and this is a sign of weak Arcada come on Share. What what does that have to do with this? If you know the Six Pillars of a man, which the vast majority of Muslims you meet on the street, you talk to them? And you say to them what is the six pillars of the man is shahada solid zakaat. So no, you're stupid.

00:18:43--> 00:18:48

It's five. I'm talking about the six new version

00:18:49--> 00:19:10

2.1 said no, no, this is Eman. And this is Islam. So you say to them, and to Amina Villa he Well, yo Mila here until you come to the Adaro Hi, Rehua. Shari, do you believe in predestination? Yes. Do you believe that you will die on a specific day said yes. Can you be one minute early or one minute late? He said no. I said why are you afraid?

00:19:11--> 00:19:18

Look at you. Three years you've lost everything. If you had Iman, you would go

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

and work. So this kind of Eman The fourth type. Sorry, this type of fear. The fourth type of fear is the prohibited fear. Some people are so scared of things that move a tree that moves. I can go there why there is Gene there is come on this field is very negative. It shows that you don't have Eman, share her don't want to get married. Why? I don't want to become pregnant. Not you. Of course the men. This is the guys. Yeah, some of the men who are pregnant. Mashallah, that four months pregnant. Anyhow, let's go back to the topic. Excuse me.

00:20:01--> 00:20:43

So they say, I get sisters like this. I don't want to get married. Why? Because I'm afraid of what? of becoming pregnant. So everybody has been coming pregnant since how peace be upon her said Yeah, but I'm afraid that my child will grow in this environment and he cannot live. And then there are LGBTQ and there are car accident Subhanallah if they had a man, and thrust and torque, Colin, Allah, all of these would not be around them. So these are types of the fears that people have. You can divide fear into another division, which is also part of

00:20:44--> 00:21:04

those who have OCD. People come to me share. I have committed children why? I'm afraid of this. I'm afraid of my boss. I'm afraid of the dark. I'm afraid of the jinn. I'm afraid of my wife, aren't we all. So this is happening everywhere. Why this is natural fear.

00:21:05--> 00:21:13

Some people asked me on ask that. I was praying and a lion came to attack me should I continue prayer.

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

So I said to Allah if you

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

keep and preserve your will continue.

00:21:22--> 00:21:25

If a lion comes, your windows will break Okay, so run.

00:21:26--> 00:21:48

This is natural fear. This has nothing to do with shake. People do not differentiate between the fear of Allah and the fear of the creatures even Musa in the Quran. Allah described described them in two or three places that he feel to them. I feel Pharaoh

00:21:49--> 00:21:55

and he feared when they threw their staffs on the ground and became snakes.

00:21:56--> 00:22:12

He feared this is a natural fear. But the fear we're talking about is the fear of Allah. If you fear someone, like you fear Allah while exonerating them while praising them, if you feel the jinn if you feel Maulana

00:22:13--> 00:23:08

if you feel the fear they seized at that person I say to you swear that you did not steal this by Allah to Allah did not steal it. Okay swear by Maulana that you did not say Listen, no, I'm afraid because if I swear by Alberta, we are a tea journey or shoddily oral Gilani he may, you know strike me with lightning or yesterday trained. I can't do this. This is fear of shake. This is the type of of shirt so we have to understand what fear is, and to see which one or which stage we are in. How did the Companions deal with fear of Allah, of course, the Prophet sallallaahu Salam sphere, Yanni, it will take us hours to mention how he spent nights weeping, tears, wetting his beard and wetting

00:23:08--> 00:23:09

the floor.

00:23:11--> 00:23:41

Come on. This is the prophet of Allah, the best of Allah's creation. Someone who has a carte blanche, whatever you did in the past, whatever you were doing in the future is forgiven, yet he feels Allah like this. And we, we have nothing. Yet we're so happy and joyful. We never shed a tear. Except when we watch the Titanic, maybe your mother No way. There are no tears, no fear of Allah.

00:23:42--> 00:24:37

Except over issues of dunya Oh, I remembered my uncle, I remember this, I remember that and I, but from the fear of Allah, this is a problem Abubaker may Allah be pleased with him. And he is who he is. He used to hold his tongue and says this is what will take me to bad places, fearing the consequences of what he says. Or Omar says, By Allah if a camel or Amule were to trip in Iraq 1000s of miles away from Medina. I would be afraid that Allah had asked me about it. And this is frightening for everyone who has responsibility. Whether you are a king, you're a president, you're a manager you are. If you have responsibility, Allah who would ask you about every single thing

00:24:37--> 00:24:38

under your responsibility.

00:24:39--> 00:24:55

And no matter you So say, if someone were to call and say all of you are in Jannah, except one, I would have feared that I would be that one Subhanallah

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

he fears that everyone will go to the next step.

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


00:25:02--> 00:25:08

What kind of fear do we have in our hearts? And if you look at Abu Hurayrah

00:25:09--> 00:25:12

may Allah be pleased with him he was narrating a hadith.

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

And this hadith

00:25:16--> 00:25:47

was an insight into my Muslim, where the prophet said that his son, the first three, to be thrown in hell, or one, two, and he reaches this stage, the first three to be thrown into hell, he weeps and faints. And he wakes up again. And he said, the Prophet SAW Selim said, the first three to be thrown in hell, or he weeps, he could not continue the Hadith, and he faints. Is he making it up? How is he acting out?

00:25:49--> 00:26:20

Abu Hurayrah used to divide the night into three parts, him and his brother and his mother 1/3 He prays, and they sleep, then he sleeps, one of them stands and pray the second third, while the other to sleep, and the third sleeps, praise the third, this is a harira. So look at his fear of the free to be thrown into hell, and it does not apply to him, but he feared that it may have applied to him.

00:26:21--> 00:26:37

So what are the things that we would benefit from fear of Allah azza wa jal, a number of things time does not allow us to expand on them. But in a nutshell, number one, fear equals sincerity.

00:26:39--> 00:26:55

When you fear Allah azza wa jal, you don't go around people, every Monday and Thursday to the office, if you're a worker. I used to have people like they're coming to my office on Monday and sitting at 10 o'clock in the in the morning. And the guy says, Oh,

00:26:56--> 00:27:15

I don't ask my nature is I don't interfere in people's business. Don't get free in mind. I will interfere yours. After 20 minutes. 15 minutes of sitting without me asking. It says last night well, I prayed night prayer for any some quiet time I feel tired.

00:27:16--> 00:27:18

Good for you. I don't talk.

00:27:19--> 00:28:06

And then after a while, I said Would you like something to drink? said no, I'm fasting. This is what he wanted. Okay, I have to go. And he goes. So some people like to show off. I once sat with an editor in one of the biggest newspapers in Saudi Arabia, who used to put the pictures of females at the end of the page of the newspaper and this was a taboo was so I went to speak to him and give him advice. He happens to know me because of so many reasons. But I went and I said, Hey, look, this is haram. He says chef, I know this is haram but you know how many people accepted Islam on my hands? 37.

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

What is he saying? He's justifying his sin. By saying that I have credit.

00:28:14--> 00:28:50

737 people accepted Islam on my hands. That's Allah Allah Aafia. Therefore, if he had faith in Allah, he would not know that Allah will accept, so he would keep it to himself. Therefore, sincerity and fear go side by side. Sincere and the fear of Allah pushes you to do more good deeds. So I prayed five forth, not enough. Why? I'm afraid I have too many sins. Let me pray. 12 rock Asuna I pray 12 Russian, that's enough. Did I pray Doha today

00:28:52--> 00:29:08

is very important. I have to pay charity for 360 joints in my body every day. The Prophet said I CERAM. To Rock I have Doha does this. So if you don't pray to her every day, start doing it. I started doing it.

00:29:09--> 00:29:24

25 years ago, I was a big chef then. But I did not pray to her. In my school. I found a teacher who barely had a beard every day in his spare class at 11 o'clock.

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

Without saying anything he goes mixolo puts his prayer mat in the teachers room. Praise to rock and say one day two day one week two when I say to myself Allah He shaman, Euro che and you teach people how to do it since then. He's getting credit. Every time I pray Baja, and he did not even open his mouth. And this is the beauty of Dawa.

00:29:49--> 00:29:53

I'm telling you now pray to her shall have you pray to her. I'll be in my grave.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

Getting in sha Allah candidate whenever you pray to have beautiful

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

Real. So it fear of Allah pushes you to do good deeds. Fear of Allah makes you Hastin to Jannah the Prophet says I saw some whoever is afraid. He traveled in the beginning of the night. You know, when they traveled, they did not travel in the morning because of the heat of the sun. So they used to travel at night, because it's quicker for your travel, and at the same time, it's safer. So the Prophet says Madhava at lunch, whoever is afraid, travels at the beginning of the night. This is a metaphor. If you're afraid of hellfire, then you will travel at the beginning of the night meaning do a lot of good deeds. And whoever travels at the beginning of the night will reach quickly meaning

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

to Jana.

00:30:49--> 00:31:28

The merchandise of Allah is expensive. The merchandise is Jenna. And also one of the benefits of fearing Allah, you will be under the shade of Allah, as in the Hadith seven are in the shade of Allah on the day of judgment where there is no shade except his shade. A one of them is a man seduced by a woman who's beautiful and influential. And he says, I feel Allah Subhanallah the vast majority of the youth today says, What is this woman? I'm here, I'm available.

00:31:30--> 00:31:59

Unfortunately, they look for it. No, this man was lured and seduced. But he said and proclaimed, I fear Allah azza wa jal, and those who fear Allah azza wa jal in this dunya they will not fear Allah on the day of judgment, and those who are safe from Allah Stormont in this dunya Allah who will torment them as per the Hadith, where is that he was Allah Allah.

00:32:01--> 00:32:28

Allah how fine by my grace and my honor, I shall not combine to fears and to security upon my servant. If he fears me in this dunya I will give him security on the day of judgment, but if he feels secure in this dunya I will torment him and fee made him afraid on the Day of Judgment, this is fear.

00:32:29--> 00:32:34

What about hope Schiff give us some hope. And this is why I did not begin with hope.

00:32:35--> 00:33:23

I thought of scaring you a little bit. Now Inshallah, I will give you hope what is hope in Islam, or Raja Raja is when your heart is connected to Allah azza wa jal feeling happy and optimistic of Allah's favours and blessings coming over you feeling the peace and tranquility, feeling your heart because you know who Allah is. This is totally the opposite of the fear. Here, you are safe, you feel safe, and I always give an example and Allah has the highest of all examples. subhanaw taala? Will Allah Hill metal Allah, when you hold your one year old child, and you toss him in the air? What does the child do?

00:33:24--> 00:33:34

What? Put me down? Does he do this? No, he laughs and he enjoys it, the more you do it. If I were to throw you in the air, what would you do?

00:33:35--> 00:34:23

You will hang to the chandelier. You're crazy. Come down. I'm gonna pick you up. Man, you're out of your mind. Because you don't trust me. So those who have hope and Allah feel like a child being tossed in the air, they know Allah will catch them. They know Allah will forgive them. They know Allah will give them Janna Yeah, he Allah made the agenda to whom to you and me. Allah who made the agenda to whom, to you and me all what you have to do is think positively of Allah azza wa jal. So, what is the difference between hope, Raja and being wishful what terminating? Wishful is when you sit on your backside, and you don't do anything and you say, I'll open the door for the prophet

00:34:23--> 00:34:30

Isaiah some of the agenda from the inside, meaning I will enter first and open the door for him. This is stupid.

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

This is wishful.

00:34:33--> 00:34:51

While being hopeful, is when you pray night prayer for two three hours and you do good deeds. And you read the Quran once every month at least. And you give charity and you are hopeful that Allah Who will accept this is a Raja Muda.

00:34:52--> 00:34:54

So how can we

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

attain this level of hopeful pneus in Allah Azza

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

origin by looking at Allah's previous favors and blessings upon you, did Allah send you favors and blessings in the past?

00:35:10--> 00:35:22

Of course, I am standing, I can see, I can speak, I can eat, I can move around, these are all favors from ALLAH, why am I becoming namah?

00:35:23--> 00:36:22

For me in Allah, so this makes me hopeful in Allah has continuous gift and blessing and Allah does not let us down. Allah continues to give his blessings to Allah He from means you do not anticipate. Also, you remember when you read the Quran and the Sunnah, what Allah has promised you, whenever you pass by verses of Jana, and see what's in Jana, your heart flies and says, I'll be there. I am one of the inhabitants of Jana, I know that and you wish and you ask ALLAH and you will make dua, also, you will remember Allah's current favors and blessings upon you that houses the children, the wives of the wealth that Allah gives to you, and most of what you're being given is without asking, is

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

everything you have. You asked Allah for. No, all what we ask Allah for is a 220 24 model new car 100 I don't want anything but everything else Allah gives you without asking.

00:36:37--> 00:36:55

And we never appreciative of that. Among the things that help you and being hopeful is remembering Allah's forgiveness Subhan Allah, Allah's forgiveness is beyond imagination.

00:36:56--> 00:37:42

And this is why the more you study, Allah has beautiful names, the more you love Allah, and you're hopeful, Allah's beautiful name Al Karim. He is the Most Generous. Allah's beautiful name or Rahim, the Most Merciful. Allah has beautiful name Allah far Allah for the one who forgives Allah's beautiful name as Al Jawad. He is the one that gives a web the one who repents over whomever asks him poses Allah azza wa jal so if you believe in Him, if you have hope in Him, you will find him as you believe.

00:37:43--> 00:37:49

As mentioned in the Hadith, and listen to this hadith, the Prophet says Allah is awesome for

00:37:51--> 00:37:59

our gotten out of Hellfire for accountability. And then Allah azza wa jal orders them back to go to hell.

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

So they came out because Allah wanted to hold them accountable for some of their deeds, and then they're sent back to hell. One of them looks and says, Oh, Allah, I had hoped that you had gotten me out, that you would not put me in back again. This is what's my hope. The hope is where

00:38:22--> 00:38:45

on the Day of Judgment, the hope of whom of someone wasn't held, and was exited and will come back again. So he's saying objecting, yeah, Allah. I was hoping that, once I'm out of it, you will not put me back. Allah says, Then I will fulfill your hope. Don't put him back Subhanallah imagine

00:38:46--> 00:38:59

after getting out of hell just because he had hopes in Allah. Allah azza wa jal says, Because of your hope, you will not go back. The other Hadith, the Prophet says, Alayhi Salatu was Salam.

00:39:01--> 00:39:19

The and this hadith Bootsie when a servant makes a sin, and He says, oh, ALLAH forgive my sin. Allah says, My servant has sinned. And he knows that Allah He has a lord that forgives sins, and holds accountable of the sin.

00:39:21--> 00:39:59

Then he makes a sin again. And Allah says the same thing, and he makes a sin for the third time. And Allah says the same thing. And when he doesn't for the first fourth time, Allah says, Let my servant do whatever he wants, I have forgiven him. The Ilia hell Allah does this mean, we should go and sin? Of course not. It means that as long as you sin, because of your human nature because of your weakness, and you repent and ask Allah for forgiveness and you feel remorseful. In your heart, Allah will forgive you, regardless of how big your sin is today.

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

Gotta do this how many times you do it as long as you fulfill the conditions of repentance, Allah will forgive you.

00:40:08--> 00:40:10

So, how much time do we have?

00:40:14--> 00:40:55

15 more minutes with the questions and answers with question that makes 30 minutes okay now, I will finish to Charlotte in 10 minutes 10 inshallah. So, what are the benefits of having hope, Raja and Allah number one? It's the main reason for finding the sweetness of Eman and worst forms of worship. Why when we pray, we're so grumpy and thinking about worldly matters and not being able to find the sweetness of salaat because we don't have hope in Allah. We're spectacle of Allah. We are

00:40:56--> 00:41:14

pessimistic. So we pray and we don't know. Allah will accept or not, we just want to get it off our chest out of our backs. No, when you have great hope in Allah, you're a badass has a sweetness to it.

00:41:15--> 00:41:24

One of the benefits of hope is that you express your Obadiah you're

00:41:25--> 00:41:46

being a slave of Allah and a servant to him, when you have hope. One of the benefits is yet you make dua, if you hope for something, you will not attain it without dua so you make a lot of dua, and it would help you escape the wrath of Allah azza wa jal now, the 1 million,

00:41:48--> 00:41:54

the Kuwaiti dinar the 1 million Kuwaiti dinar question I wouldn't say I didn't get because I think it is.

00:41:57--> 00:42:13

Kuwaiti dinar is about 1516 Ringgits, I don't know a lot. So the 1 million Kuwaiti dinar question, how can we balance it is extremely important to balance between allow for Raja, the fear of Allah and the hope of Allah. Why?

00:42:15--> 00:43:01

To us a solution that you will GEMA we believe that we are different than the deviant sects, the 72 that are in hell, because one will be in paradise as the Prophet said Assam. And those are who follow the footsteps of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and his companions. So our belief is a man is increased and decreased, increases with good deeds decreases with since Al Hawa ridge and El Mirage, they believe a man to be a bulk either goes all of it, or stays all of it. However, they said, if you do a major sin, the whole event is gone. You're a Kaffir off.

00:43:03--> 00:43:24

So they went to the far extreme of fear. So even if you lied, you're a Kaffir. You still you're a Kaffir you make backbiting you're a Kaffir immediately the mortgagee who are the majority of the Muslims nowadays, unfortunately, they say, no matter what you do, you have Eman. You have taqwa,

00:43:25--> 00:43:44

you can party all night long. You can booze you can do drugs. You can lie you can cheat you Gielan Reba check mortgage Alhamdulillah Usila Allah Allah Allah, you're in Jannah so they say your Eman can never be decreased. i Hello Sanogo Gemma says no, no, no, it's not like this.

00:43:46--> 00:43:50

Fear and hope are like the wings of a bird.

00:43:51--> 00:43:59

They have to be balanced. If one wing is stronger, the bird will be tilted and fall

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

and if they're all

00:44:02--> 00:44:59

flapping, well, the bird will fly in a good way and this is what is mentioned all over the Quran. Yo meta belt Dojo Han what us what do we do the day that their faces will be white and somes faces will turn black. So, fear and hope and Allah says in the rough Baca, Surya or a pub or in the HoH love our photo, Rahim your Lord is prompt and fast in torment and punishment and penalty as he is as our general most forgiving, most merciful and so on. So, how to balance let it be known that every fear of Allah must have hope and every hope and Allah must have fear. Oh, how is that if your fear

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

does not have any hope. It will be despair and connote from Rahmatullah from Allah's mercy, and this will take you to hell. And if your hope is 100% without fear, this means that you will indulge in doing sins because you have huge and great hope and Allah azza wa jal and that will also take you to hell. So, when

00:45:28--> 00:45:30

to have hope,

00:45:32--> 00:45:38

overwhelming my condition, and when to have fear, overwhelming my condition, hope

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

and fear,

00:45:42--> 00:46:01

though they have to be balanced, sometimes one must a little bit exceed the other for example, at the time of death, when you're dying hulless The doctor says in five minutes, seven minutes, what is the best for you to do? Fear Allah, I'll be hopeful.

00:46:06--> 00:46:59

Whoever says hopefully raise your hands. Just make sure you're awake. Okay? Because I'm saving. After breakfast. everybody's asleep. Who are okay, whoever says the fear of Allah raise your hands. One only one child. Okay. 2345. Okay, no, the majority is not democracy is not voting. But yes, at the time of death, you have to have the hope exceeding because the fear pushes you to do what good deeds in this state of death. You can do anything. So the only thing you have is this straw that you have to hang on in this ocean, you're dying. So think positive of Allah. And this is why people at the time of death they used to tell their students remind me of my good deeds. OSHA, you have been

00:46:59--> 00:47:05

living for 70 years. You fasted for 60 Here's not break one day.

00:47:06--> 00:47:55

I feel good about this. By the way. I just remembered, yes, I did not have the last clip any day of Ramadan. Wow, that's good. Share, you pray this much. You made hotma of the Quran this much. This gives you hope and Allah at the time of your bed also. And the Prophet said that no one of you should die, except thinking well of Allah. This is an instruction when you when it's your deathbed, on your deathbed think well of Allah subhanho wa taala. Also, when someone is in despair of Allah's mercy, someone who has OCD, as you know I'm going to hell I'm going to remind him of hope and the beauty of hope and Islam so that you get him out of this OCD and mental illness and the cases we

00:47:55--> 00:48:34

should make the fear more prevent. For example, when the people are insecurity, when you go to their lavish homes and they feel fine, everything is fine. My job is secured my children are healthy. I have a huge bank account my business is doing well. This is when shaytaan is preparing you watch out shaytaan is marinating you like a good chef. This is what he's doing is waiting for the right moment. So you be fearful of Allah azza wa jal and watch out.

00:48:35--> 00:48:53

By remembering the I have to fear Allah like the prophets and the messages. And you should also have fear exceeding and prevailing when you're doing a sin. So you don't listen to music, or watch haram movies and said suffer loss or loss of

00:48:55--> 00:49:35

life. Some people do this. And they think that no, you're making fun of Allah azza wa jal Okay, is this step five haram? No, but in this location, turn off the Haram so that you would have fear of Allah subhanho wa taala. And finally, whenever you feel safe and secure, and that you are in Jannah, this is when you have to make fear prevailing Imam Ahmed Ibn Hanbal and with this I will conclude my talk in sha Allah was asked a question, when does the servant of Allah find the taste of comfort?

00:49:36--> 00:49:55

In this dunya is there a comfort? Yes, at the end of the day, when you go to sleep, you crash Palace, you're comfortable. So a man is asking when does the servant find the real taste of comfort? Even humbled? May Allah have mercy and associate when he puts his first foot in paradise.

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

Before you put your foot in paradise, you will never

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

Be safe, you will never be comfortable. It's always agony and torment and trials from Allah. The moment you put your first first foot and Janna Palace, nobody is going to take you out. You are there to stay. This is when internal comfort and safety would be achieved. I pray to Allah azza wa jal that he makes me and you among the inhabitants of Jana, and that Allah Bucha in our hearts, the fear of him and the hope and what He has for us and to make us balanced from a halation that he will Gemma have the Allahu Allah when
