hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah while early or softly he had 19 brothers and sisters in Islam. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

I already feel part of you, your family and you are part of mind. And it is a pleasure and honor for me to be here to address you on such an important topic. In fact, it is the pinnacle of our Deen and the whole purpose of our creation.

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

We need to develop

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

and the way we develop is through our actions. And our actions cannot be accepted unless our intention is correct.

00:00:40--> 00:01:19

are also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in a hadith which is not takala in Bukhari, and Muslim in emiliana lupini yet, I begin with this hadith very important Hadith because I think this is the foundation of any good action or bad action. In fact, good action. And bad actions are seldom said in ml luini yet, we're in an early culinary in Manoa. As a matter of fact, in Nevada, as a matter of fact, all actions, whether they are good or bad, all actions are judged by your intentions.

00:01:22--> 00:01:25

And for every person will receive the reward

00:01:28--> 00:01:33

or the punishment of the action, which they do, based on their intention

00:01:34--> 00:02:00

from Canada to Toronto in a la hora soon. So whoever for example, and also SAS has given us an example. Their migration is for the sake of Allah and His Messenger, then their migration is for that meaning that's the reward they will receive for that woman can a teacher to hooni dunia you'll see blue hair, but whoever has intention of migrating for example, is for a worldly gain

00:02:02--> 00:02:14

our attention to her or to marry a woman Phaedra to Elena hajra la, then his migration or her migration is for that which they intended to go for.

00:02:15--> 00:02:44

I mentioned that even bad deeds are judged by your intentions, I'd need to make a very important note on that. When a person does a bad action, if they don't know that it's a wrong action. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala looks at your intention. All that is asked of you is to try your best in investigating an action before doing it. If a Muslim does not investigate a bad action action before doing it, in order to know whether it's right or wrong,

00:02:46--> 00:03:38

continuously like that, then that person falls into the sins of those actions afterwards. But if you try your best, and you happen to make a mistake, even with sincerity, even with investigation and advice, then that action is judged by your intention. An example of that is when I receive sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked or commanded the Muslims the Mahajan answered in the Battle of Hunter. Have you heard of the Battle of conduct Battle of Canada when the neighboring Jewish tribe called bunny coryza were in a treaty agreement with the Muslims and they had betrayed the Muslims. And they were about to be the cause of the massacre and destruction and annihilation of the lemon

00:03:38--> 00:03:50

all the Muslims in Medina. So Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he did not take his armor off and said to the Muslims, we will not pray ourselves except in Benny at Benny coryza.

00:03:51--> 00:03:54

So some of them went before others.

00:03:55--> 00:03:57

A group that was after behind,

00:03:58--> 00:04:00

they couldn't reach the province of the last lm in time.

00:04:02--> 00:04:08

They also time was almost over. It was almost murdered. So a group of them they differed, a group of them said,

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

you know, we should take the province on the life synonyms words literally.

00:04:14--> 00:04:17

For he does not speak out of his own whims were may anticline in Hawaii in Hawaii law.

00:04:18--> 00:04:25

So they use that he he does not speak at his own whims, except from Allah subhanaw taala what he has inspired to him

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

and another group said no, no, no.

00:04:30--> 00:04:44

Allah subhana wa tada Allah says in the Quran in la sala Turkana Talamini Nikita makuta prayer has been prescribed upon the believers in an appointed time. So each one of us evidence that is credible.

00:04:45--> 00:04:58

The only difference now, I mean, they both have the evidence which is credible, but they have different opinions, right. The only thing now that will make or break is their intentions.

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

This group,

00:05:01--> 00:05:10

why do you want to pray only as Benny coryza? Do you really follow the Prophet? sallallahu wasallam? Or is it a trick from you like the hypocrites? Are you trying to make fitna?

00:05:11--> 00:05:32

Are you trying to say that you belong to this particular group? Because maybe in that group, there's your cousin lived? And your cousin has a say, right? And you want to make everybody look like this group is right, because my cousin spoke out. Or this other group, why are you speaking that way? Is it because he's of your tribe and you want to make your tribe look like they know everything. So you know, the winds and desires appreciate and puts in you.

00:05:33--> 00:05:34

Either one could be correct.

00:05:36--> 00:05:57

But the intention was the most important thing. After they tried and struggled to find out what is correct. So they did it anyway. A group prayed they also before the mother came. So before they arrived at Bennett, polarizer. And another group waited until moment of time came and they prayed. They're also in London at the moment of time at Ben equalizer.

00:05:59--> 00:06:06

When they arrived at the province on the level and he was sent, and they said they are sold a lot. This is what happened to us. What's the solution?

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

And what did the Prophet sallallaahu Selim say?

00:06:11--> 00:06:31

He said, You have both targeted the correct target. He didn't even say who was right or wrong. You can take it as being both right if you like. But the expression or suicide cell i'm used was a subtotal you both a subtotal. You both reached the target.

00:06:32--> 00:06:46

What is the target? two conditions, sincerity in your heart? And secondly, you've done everything within your capability of knowledge and investigation, to try and come to what is more correct.

00:06:47--> 00:06:50

And that was all that needed to be know.

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

That was the important thing.

00:06:54--> 00:06:57

Now I asked you brothers and sisters in Islam, having started off with this,

00:06:58--> 00:07:11

is it not that our whole religion is based on our intentions? And is it not that when we do an act, we try our best to do the right act? And then if we are wrong in the act, why should we separate

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

our actions which we do,

00:07:15--> 00:07:36

should not separate us even if we differ in our opinions, for the actions are judged by your intentions, and maybe all the actions which cause fitna between us good actions or bad actions that cause fitna between us really do come down to what comes out from here from the hearts.

00:07:38--> 00:07:55

Listen to what at least said to Allah when the great debate happened about the frustration to add the money, sediment and police refused. He said a very important statement which is in your court and I don't know if you've reflected over this particular statement. Let me recite it to you. At least said

00:07:59--> 00:08:03

are a thicker hairs and Lizzy come on? He said

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

why zedekiah generika Fatima whitening?

00:08:09--> 00:08:11

The one who knew have made me into error.

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

Why zedekiah wa Jalla Anika by your honor and by your might law aka Odin Allah home xerocon. Mr.

00:08:25--> 00:09:06

You've heard of this verse accordion Allah homes erotica and Mr. Payne, I am going to sit a waiting for them on your straight path. Do you know what that means? It means that all the actions in the commands which are loss of Hannah what Allah gave us, the compulsory commands, the voluntary things that are lost when Allah loves us doing the Nuffield prayers and unluckily fasting and the voluntary donations and the voluntary acts of goodness when you go out to help your brother or your sisters who is in need, or bringing a smile to your brother's face or your sister's face. And you obviously bring a smile to your sister's face. Someone who's related to Michelle

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

brothers going around now looking at where the sisters are sitting outside strangers and trying to be your smile to their face. One brother, he was with me in Melbourne and he said to me before he got married, he said, Oh brother, let's bring a smile to the sister's face. I go What business do you have with them? Go bring a smile to your brother's face.

00:09:25--> 00:09:31

He said, you know, get to know them and then married him said yeah, Phil, Kevin, please don't let the Shakedown play with your mind intentions.

00:09:32--> 00:09:40

So you do all these different good acts, you know, 1000s and 1000s of good acts. We can't mention them all inshallah.

00:09:42--> 00:09:47

You do these good acts. The shaitan is waiting for you on that path.

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

In a lot of us, we think that the shaitaan comes to us. And the only thing he whispers in our minds is to do bad acts. We Oh, this is what we've got in our mind. We tell our children don't lie the shaitan wishes.

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

So you to lie, you tell our children don't cheat, the shutdown tells you to cheat. We tell the brothers and sisters don't mix free mix in her own way, the shaitan always is the third, if a man and woman are alone in one room, don't think all these bad eggs don't drink alcohol. You know how bad it is done approaches they know you know what Allah says the shaitaan whispers.

00:10:20--> 00:10:48

But what we sometimes forget, is one of the most the number one trick in the book of the show far, and that is if he can get to the losers in something which obviously is wrong in action, what does he do? He comes to wait for you on your good actions. What does he do with that aloha in a subtle way, and the best trick he does to the believers for the strong believers comes up to you and says,

00:10:49--> 00:11:11

You've been helping out the Muslim community or a lot of you are involved in a lawsuit. You're part of the organization, you're part of eliminar or you're part of like media, or you're part of this or that organization, Masha, Allah, well done. curonian, the shaitan tells you that he whispers in your head and says to you, good, good, very good. Keep going.

00:11:12--> 00:11:34

We know what he's doing at the same time, is waiting. He says I'm going to make him or her go. And I'm going to make them use every energy in their body to do the good date. And then when they do the good days, without them realizing I'm going to play with their intentions. And this is what the first one does. Hey, look,

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

people are saying good things about you.

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

This is a blessing from Allah.

00:11:40--> 00:11:44

We should increase in that good deed. So then you go to the next step.

00:11:45--> 00:12:22

Continue. Look at that. You've just discovered that you've got a nice voice in Korea and you've got a nice way of speaking to people look how many people are following you. Mashallah, because the sisters in the back Mashallah they're intrigued by what you're saying. Soon you're going to get married and you can choose anyone you want. Because these brothers Mashallah they've got lots of fathers, they're impressed the fathers get married for the sake of Allah get married, but impressed them through your good work. So now he suddenly changed your intention without you realizing in the name of her Senate, in the name of pleasing a las panatela marriage, a lot loves marriage, you know,

00:12:22--> 00:12:33

guiding people, Michelle, love God's guiding people, right, all these things. And then he says to you, after a while, you find yourself doing these good deeds and wasting all that time.

00:12:34--> 00:12:38

But your intention is now no longer fully for our last panel What?

00:12:39--> 00:12:50

What happens to those deeds? Allah says in the Quran about these types of people and the noble lesser human feel hayati, dounia,

00:12:59--> 00:13:17

Allah, this verse cases, it says, the ones who their road, their road in life, their struggle in life, their seeking of good rewards in life becomes lost, they lose their path.

00:13:19--> 00:13:23

And they assume all this time that they were doing good deeds.

00:13:25--> 00:13:40

Allah spoke about the priests and the rabbis at the time the crops are selling this idea came down in there about them, they do all these good deeds on the outside, but they're doing it not for Allah, they're doing it for the wrong God for the wrong purpose.

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

And if you work for a company, how can you expect a competing company to pay you? Have you ever imagined that? What are two companies here who are competing? What have you got to manufacturing? Come give me some examples. Just so that I can wake you up.

00:13:58--> 00:14:30

Microsoft and Apple, say you work for Microsoft, and they expect Apple to pay you? Doesn't make sense does it? So these people they work good deeds, but now I'm doing it for the people. I'm doing it for the marriage, I want to impress the fathers, I want to do it now for many I want to do so I can keep my physician as you know the president of such and such are the leader of such and such the amount of such and such or for this reputation or that reputation. So now the deeds beginning to become a disaster.

00:14:33--> 00:14:40

I wanted to open it up with this because these are one of the most subtle tricks to shape army attacks the true believers.

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

However,

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

ablaze did say something else. He had to admit something to Allah subhanho wa Taala because Allah knows everything shaitan is is thinking and he Allah knows everything right? So the shaitan had to admit something. He said one type of

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

People I will not be able to lead them astray in their actions and I can never play tricks on them. What did he say? Illa. I mean,

00:15:12--> 00:15:36

I will leave them all astray by sitting on their straight path except among your servants who obey you. Listen to it very intricately. He's not saying all your servants, he is saying your servants meaning the Muslims, the believers who follow you who pray, they believe in you. Among them, not all of them. Among them is a special elite team.

00:15:37--> 00:15:41

I will not be able to reach them however, they at least admit

00:15:43--> 00:15:57

they are the ones who are sincere in their actions. They do it only seeking the pleasure of Allah and only wanting the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and only wanting the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:15:59--> 00:16:04

And fearing the punishment of a Lost Planet, Allah alone and fearing displeasing Allah Subhana Allah alone.

00:16:06--> 00:16:19

This is what exessive this is what exemplifies and gratifies any action with one law it's a tiny atom seed of an action, or a big action, the size of a mountain, there was

00:16:20--> 00:16:26

a man who came from the mushrikeen at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:16:27--> 00:16:47

he came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when they were about to go out into a battle. I'm not sure if we're sure it was the Battle of better or hurt I'm not sure it was hurt or maybe a battle after that. So this man came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and said, Yeah, I saw Allah I have come to bear witness that there is only one God worthy of worship and you want his messenger.

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

I've come to accept God.

00:16:51--> 00:17:13

The Prophet salado, send them after explaining it to him. He made beta he pledged allegiance to this religion and bear witness that there is only one God and you are His Messenger. The Cult of jihad was there. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, you know, since you've just become a Muslim, you need to sit down and learn your deen, you're not obliged to go out right now. It's okay, you're exempt.

00:17:14--> 00:17:44

You know what the Sahaba said? And I don't know his name. So currently affecting the books it's not his name is not mentioned Why? Because the focus is not about the names. The focus is not about identity, or color or background of their culture. They come from Lebanon, or India or turkey or Pakistan or whatever it is, this is not important. Whether they are men or women. It doesn't matter the actions of a person and their intention is what gives you the merit not your color or shape.

00:17:45--> 00:17:47

He said yeah rasulillah

00:17:48--> 00:18:01

I did not become a Muslim to sit laser Lee there while watching my brothers and sisters being massacred and hurt but rather to defend them in the cause of a law and for an arrow to enter into this side of my neck and exit through this side. And he pointed with his finger

00:18:05--> 00:18:12

Rasul Salah miniseries determination he said very well then Okay, come along. How can I deny you for a dose

00:18:13--> 00:18:57

he went along and fought, the Muslims were victorious. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam being the compassionate and loving grace, we will have a law with an inhale and mean a mercy to all of mankind. He was the one who remembers those one or two people who no one else remembers. So he went looking for this Sahabi he couldn't find him. Finally, he found him on the floor with several of the machines around him and he had killed them and he was dead. In the middle of them. I also saw Sal and looked at him and saw exactly where he had pointed to his neck and arrow had entered from here and exit from them. Allah had given exactly what he wanted. Listen to what the prophet sallallahu

00:18:57--> 00:19:15

alayhi wa sallam said this is the point behind this is an Arabic statement sort of expression they used to use when they are you know, something is out of the ordinary. He said but far out. Wow. Well, what do you know, like that? back in?

00:19:17--> 00:19:24

June or June, the Hillel Fiera Del Sol Allah will amused you dinner he says

00:19:26--> 00:19:36

a man enters the highest places of Paradise that any person can reach with the profits of the martyrs and he has never prostrated once in his life.

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

That

00:19:40--> 00:19:46

he enters in full dose and has never his head never touched the ground in prostration. Once in his life.

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

This is a hope for us in Sharla that sometimes we do a small act. And sometimes we cannot do so many major acts because we couldn't do them. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

Makes you into the highest places of paradise. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, it is not about quantity of action, but rather it is the quality of the action.

00:20:12--> 00:20:15

It is the quality of the action, you could come into the masjid.

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

And you and another person are praying in the same room in the front row behind the best of all imams.

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

With the best outfit

00:20:25--> 00:20:46

with your job with your beard, the system with a complete hijab, standing perfectly in the line, shoulder to shoulder foot to foot the gamma heel to heel calf the cough in the best form with the history citation behind the best Imam in the masjid. In Missouri the number we feel like in Mecca,

00:20:47--> 00:20:49

right in the front row in front of the Kaaba

00:20:51--> 00:20:54

and your your your eyes are tearing.

00:20:56--> 00:20:57

But the person next to you

00:20:59--> 00:21:05

could be receiving rewards like planets upon planets more than you

00:21:06--> 00:21:08

and you're probably receiving a little bit

00:21:09--> 00:21:36

you're doing the same thing exactly the same thing. What is it that differentiates between this person and this person brothers? What is it that differentiates brothers and sisters? The intention now, where did I get this from? Well I just mentioned one deli, the other deli is when Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a Salah Salem had a few days to live, and he stood up in the Navy. And he

00:21:37--> 00:21:45

said, a man is being given the opportunity to live or to die meet his Lord and he has chosen the hereafter

00:21:47--> 00:21:51

Rasul sama speaking about himself, and no one understood this except abubaker robiola one.

00:21:52--> 00:21:57

He said he chose the hereafter. So I will work on a lot of startup to cry and said

00:21:58--> 00:22:08

he will only Rasul Allah, I would ransom my father and mother for you jasola or I would ransom myself for you before my mother and father.

00:22:10--> 00:22:24

The older people looked at him and said this man this old men have already said this old man is crying and weeping over some story about promises. I'm saying a man was given the option between living or going to the hereafter he chose the hereafter No, but God is crying like a baby, what's wrong with you?

00:22:25--> 00:22:38

And reviews that I've worked on the long knew that he was talking about himself solo It was said that he was going to die in a few days. And I will work with a loved one who are so sad and turn to abubaker Delano and said,

00:22:39--> 00:22:41

every door

00:22:42--> 00:23:32

to this message it has been closed, meaning every person who has done a favor for the Messenger of Allah or messenger of Allah has returned that favor in another way. No one he doesn't owe anyone anything in Aviva crane, except the door of Abu Bakr on the alarm on I cannot ever repay him enough. Later on the companion said we knew that abubaker Dylan was the most knowledgeable of us, the point of that is Rasul sasl and then said later on, by God, Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu did not beat anyone, anyone in his closeness to Allah and in his status with Allah subhanho wa Taala by fasting more than others, by praying more than others, by donating more than others, or lacking vishay in what kind of

00:23:32--> 00:23:34

equality he was.

00:23:36--> 00:23:43

But it was because of something special, that none of you could reach that existed inside his heart.

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

And his actions proved it. When he did to look at

00:23:49--> 00:24:07

what was inside of him the level, the concentration level, the connection with the last panel with his thought process, his feelings, his ears, his eyes, his legs, his hands, everything, everything in his body was fully in the foreshore

00:24:08--> 00:24:18

in absolute meditation, serenity, submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala. In a manner we cannot describe this requires a long way to reach.

00:24:19--> 00:24:22

And this is why our work of the law has increased all of us.

00:24:23--> 00:24:27

Sometimes you do a good deed that no one can see.

00:24:29--> 00:24:59

No one can see. And it will make you become one of those promised paradise. Did I say promised paradise? Yes, promised paradise. And I'll tell you how. And again, this is why the shaitan loves to concentrate on your inner self rather than your outside appearance. In fact, the shaitan doesn't care about your outside appearance and loves you to grow up but he knows the sister to wear her hijab. What's wrong with that he loves you to pray in the masjid. He doesn't care. He is ready to use that against you. In fact, he

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

loves it. If you did all the best leaves of the world and spent all your time and energy away from your family away from everybody in for the, you know, doing these good acts, and then make it all become useless. That's the greatest achievement of the greatest achievement. Listen to this beautiful hadith of a man again to give you hope about actions that sometimes they don't have to be physical, but they can be in your heart. He was a very good example of which earned one of the sahabas the title of being one of the those promised paradise but without mentioning we don't know his name. He was one of the unsolved one of the unsolved we know who the insider Yes, we all know

00:25:41--> 00:25:47

the answer. I put your hand up you know the insider, so I don't explain who they are. And if you don't know who they are, I'm sorry.

00:25:48--> 00:26:23

Haha, very good. It's always there's one person I will explain the answer where the people who followed the prophets Allah Allahu Allah, He will send them in engaged in victory. But they didn't live in Mecca. They lived in Medina, there were a number of tribes and they welcomed the process for them to migrate from Mecca to Medina, they gave him victory and that is where in their land in Medina, the process and and built his Masjid, and Islam grew from there. That was the sell of the state of Islam. They were called the unsought. They were the awesome 100 tribes and around them, seven other tribes.

00:26:24--> 00:26:34

These people, the unsought were very special. They used to put anyone else in need before themselves, even though they were more in need than them.

00:26:36--> 00:26:54

And this is how Allah Azza wa sallam, he tells us that sometimes a good action that you do, can be multiplied, multiplied, because of your intention, as opposed to an action that could be the size of a mountain in the eyes of people.

00:26:55--> 00:27:02

But it's only worth an atom to one loss upon what the island because a person does it for the wrong reason

00:27:04--> 00:27:11

or a person may donate or sell them said a person donates a little bit, but they are in need of that money.

00:27:13--> 00:27:19

Then a person donating a lot and they are rich in money, which one's reward is greater.

00:27:20--> 00:27:22

The one who doesn't while they are in need, this is

00:27:23--> 00:27:58

a person donating helping giving a form of charity while they are in need. Their reward is greater than the one who is very very comfortable in wealth and gives a little bit more than that person. So the reward increases or decreases depending on the situation of the person, the place where you are the intention. This particular Sahabi this Ansari rasa Salim was sitting in Madrid in Nairobi, in his ministry, and then he turned after I think, just before salatu wa salam and he said to me, so for your for Harlequin Rajan.

00:28:00--> 00:28:03

So for your throw on a camera, Julian will

00:28:05--> 00:28:13

very soon and then is about to appear in front of you. He will be one of he is one of the people of paradise.

00:28:15--> 00:28:23

Over sahabas of it, Omar Abdullah Abu Bakr, Aslan, hollywood Ilana Masada Masami Aveda ninja genre

00:28:24--> 00:28:29

da da da da da and all these great companions are sitting there, Fatima, the Allahu

00:28:30--> 00:28:36

Allah and all these companions are sitting there waiting, who is this person?

00:28:37--> 00:28:43

So suddenly a man from the outside came out, and he was dripping water because of will do. So everyone thought is that the will do?

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

No.

00:28:46--> 00:28:59

The next day or so sauce? Lm said the same thing. So your flow on a camera, gentlemen and engine? Again, the same answer he came out on the third day he said it again the same inside he came out one of the companions.

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

Who was he?

00:29:04--> 00:29:25

of the love? No. No, Abdullah random loss of a loved one. He said what law he tonight I will follow this person to go and have a look at what he does more than us, so that I may copy him. So I may be one of the people of paradise. What is our beloved novelist focusing on brothers and sisters?

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

The deeds the outside actions, isn't that correct?

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

What he's about to discover something opposite to that. So he went there. And he made up this story to him and said, You know, I had a little disagreement with my father and we agreed that I'm just going to sleep outside.

00:29:40--> 00:29:52

Obviously, he told him the truth after the three nights, but in those three nights, I looked at him and found that that day of the last night and loss was fasting, and he was known for his intense fasting.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

The Sahabi was not fasting. So we thought to himself, well, I guess it's not the fasting which he beat us.

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

Because I'm fasting more than him. He kept it to himself. That night. He wanted to pray pm. So he wanted to stay up and not go to sleep and pray. The Ansari went to sleep.

00:30:14--> 00:30:19

So Panama, and then just before fudger, the Sahaba stood up the Ansari and he prayed the 100.

00:30:20--> 00:30:24

He said to himself, well, I guess it's not the night prayer. That's another one.

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

The next morning,

00:30:28--> 00:30:52

he kept watching his actions. He was doing everything every other Sahaba did for if probably even less. On the third day, he was about to leave because the Arabs and also in Islamic only from the Sunnah is to look after your guests for three days and three nights maximum, we should not burden the host more than three nights and three days. I don't know about the West, you know, they sit in that house to three hours. And I don't know what we feel after that. And when's he going to leave?

00:30:53--> 00:30:58

I've got to go to shopping right now and see, the wife now is going to give me a headache.

00:30:59--> 00:31:03

Please, we gave you the app, we gave you the show the T and everything time to leave.

00:31:05--> 00:31:28

So what happened on the third day, he climbed up on his horse is about to leave. And he said to him the truth. Listen, I didn't have anything wrong between me and my father. Honestly, our associate Selim said this about you and I came to learn what is it that you do have more actions than us that made you earn this title of being of the people of paradise? He said, Well, what you saw with me is it that's it, there's nothing else.

00:31:29--> 00:32:01

So I believe nothing lost was going miserably and I sort of said, I didn't get to, then the man called him back. He said to him come. He said, You know what, there's something that I do maybe that cannot be seen. There isn't a night that I go to sleep before my eyelids shut, except that I judge my heart. And any person, any men on the face of the earth, who I have a problem with a grudge, a hatred, of jealousy, and envy and Ill feeling I can sign it.

00:32:02--> 00:32:03

And I get rid of it.

00:32:04--> 00:32:07

And I do not sleep until my heart was clear.

00:32:10--> 00:32:12

And that's when Optima Hernando de la said to him.

00:32:14--> 00:32:19

This is the reason why the prophet SAW Selim said you are from the people of Paradise,

00:32:21--> 00:32:29

when we always focus on your actions on the outside. But let us not forget the actions of the heart.

00:32:30--> 00:33:08

It is the actions of the heart, which make a person a believer or a disbeliever. It is the actions of the heart, which make a person's actions the size of a mountain, or the size of an egg. It is the heart. And this gives us good tidings and bad tidings. It gives us good news. Because there are people who are unable, for example, to donate as much as other people. There are people who want to go to Hajj, for example, and they're still unable. There are people who want to fast but their health is so bad, they can't faster they think that they've lost out on all these rewards. There are people who look at other people and thinks, oh, Pamela, they've got more knowledge than me and the

00:33:08--> 00:33:24

dean. So how lucky they are they get to practice more than me and their actions are better than mine. And little old me and I'm sitting here All I know is a few years from now. And I know you know how to pray five times a day and I barely know the Sooners and how much they are I'm learning and I'm struggling. There are people who can read the code and Michelle look at them.

00:33:26--> 00:33:31

And they recite it better than me and here I am still struggling to recite In fact, there are people you know who think like that, yeah.

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

But on the other hand, have you forgotten

00:33:36--> 00:33:44

that may be their heart is different to yours. Maybe their heart will make them when they reading the Quran, the Quran is cursing them.

00:33:45--> 00:34:08

It could be that their heart when they are praying, the Salah afterwards it cries and the angel comes down as in the Hadith, and they fold the prayer like a piece of ragged clothing and the prayer cries and the angel hits you across the face with it in the prayer says the Yakama who came out the attorney may Allah lose you as you have lost me because the intentions were wrong.

00:34:11--> 00:34:14

Did you not hear the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim says

00:34:15--> 00:34:22

there are people who recite the Quran and they find it hard upon themselves to recite it. They will receive double the reward.

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

Double the reward. Now,

00:34:26--> 00:34:27

there are people

00:34:29--> 00:34:36

who struggle more than others in doing good deeds. And the process lm said, A dro Allah Catarina Shaka.

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

The reward of an action is accordance in accordance with how much hardship you go through.

00:34:45--> 00:34:58

There are three types of patience levels. When you're doing your actions. There is patience in being steadfast, continuously doing good deeds, the five daily prayers that we do

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

the five day

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

prayers that we do, it can be difficult, constantly doing them waking up at prayers at a time. And then remembering a lot of time and then afterwards in Asia and then coming to the masjid in congregation. And then following that up with the sooner over and over and over and over. So Pamela, there is a struggle in there. And this is one form of patience, the more you are patient in that, and you are steadfast, and you fight yourself, and you wrestle yourself, and you say to yourself, no one law here on the Day of Judgment, I want to, I want to compete with the for however, folks, I set them in entering gender, I'm going to stay up in the night, even if my legs failed me.

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

The difference between this patience and another patience. And the second type of patience is to be patient on her arm leads to continue to wrestle against yourself to stop yourself from doing something hard on sometimes in the middle of the night when no one is watching us, especially the young people are not married.

00:35:54--> 00:36:24

And unfortunately sad to say that even married people now are into this. Because the panel or the internet world is such an epidemic, such an addictive thing that a person can just merely click one click and there you go, you have a website that fills all your negative desires. The shaitaan comes to you at that time and begins to whisper no one is watching. Don't worry, Allah will forgive you he alone will forgive you don't worry, you just pray fudger insha Allah and everything will be gone.

00:36:25--> 00:36:27

Go and donate a few dollars

00:36:30--> 00:36:31

pounds and it'll be gone inshallah.

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

So what happens? This person gets in the middle of the night,

00:36:38--> 00:36:41

praying to their desires, and begins to do that.

00:36:44--> 00:36:46

Send them comes to mind him. He said,

00:36:48--> 00:36:55

the majority of the reasons why members of my own law will end up in hellfire.

00:36:58--> 00:37:01

Does the Muslim end up in hell fine. It's possible.

00:37:02--> 00:37:06

It's possible. Don't ever think that you are safe.

00:37:07--> 00:37:38

From the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala by sitting down and saying, Well, I'm a Muslim, I don't need to pray, I don't need to really concentrate much I don't need to wear hijab. I don't need to focus a lot of hamdulillah and guaranteed paradise, they need to say that to yourself. Because that's when the shaitaan gets you in your guards down. There also saw Selim said the majority of the reasons why members of my own will enter Hellfire for a temporary time yet inshallah. So long as you have never made schicke is because listen to this is because of taking the minus sins for granted.

00:37:40--> 00:38:05

We look at the minus sins and we accumulate and accumulate and accumulate. We don't care. We don't care. There's a difference between people who do minus things, then they feel guilty about it. So they pray they pray, hoping that they'll be forgiven. But there are people who do their minus sins, and they think that's nothing. Who cares. It's just a look, it's still who cares, and they're happy about it. In fact, some of them shared this idea with others about it. La La quwata illa Allah, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to save us from this crowd of people.

00:38:06--> 00:38:36

mm Ahmed, Mohammed Ali. Ali understood this trick, and he never wanted to pollute his actions. So one night, on his deathbed, he was dying, and his son Abdullah entered, and he saw his father euthanasia. When he was in the intoxications of death. Even the believer goes through that. Will you go unconscious for a little while as if you are intoxicated drunk, but you are not drunk? He heard his father Imam Ahmed.

00:38:37--> 00:38:43

Saying in his own consciousness, not yet. Not yet. Not yet.

00:38:45--> 00:38:47

So the law said to himself, so this is a bad sign.

00:38:48--> 00:39:03

I heard the promise I sent him statement I have beloved he caught him and I have been a koala. I have been loving the car. Whoever loves to meet a lot of times, Allah loves to meet him. And my father seems like he doesn't want to meet almost. He doesn't want to die yet. Not yet. Not yet.

00:39:04--> 00:39:29

So when his father came round, the son immediately asked him Dad, Father, why were you saying Not yet Not yet? Do you not want to meet a lot kind of what that? Is there something wrong. He said, My son, teach others this. The shaitan comes to a person at the time of their detriment. And he begins to try and get them at the time of weakness. He comes to me and said to me, look at me, let me near.

00:39:30--> 00:39:32

You have escaped my tricks yet.

00:39:34--> 00:39:37

And I understood that the shaitan was doing another one of his

00:39:38--> 00:39:44

tricks. He wanted me to lay my guards down, thinking that I have one.

00:39:45--> 00:39:52

And when I put my guards down, he will get me with something and all my actions of my life will be destroyed.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

So I said to him, not yet. Not here. I have not escaped

00:40:00--> 00:40:18

tricks I have not left yet. The battle between you and i is not over yet you cannot trick him even to the last point where the soul has to come out from a gathering point. The tricks of the Showtime never sees my brothers and sisters, so be aware of him, be aware of him. Lastly,

00:40:26--> 00:40:28

he was sitting in a shack

00:40:30--> 00:40:31

in the masjid in Cuenca.

00:40:33--> 00:40:36

When the re citation was heard,

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

yo mama easy.

00:41:07--> 00:41:13

On that day, it says, The day when all of the peoples

00:41:14--> 00:41:19

shall be gathered throughout the land, on the day of judgment.

00:41:21--> 00:41:24

In order to watch and see and witness they do

00:41:25--> 00:41:26

what they have they called for

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

whoever has done an atom is worth of good deed it will be revealed at Nara and whoever has done the utterance of the size of a bad dB, it will be revealed.

00:41:43--> 00:41:48

In Abu hanifa set a pondering over this verse and crying until his beautiful soapy tears.

00:41:49--> 00:41:52

One law he did not get off his positioning

00:41:53--> 00:42:03

all through the night, crying and weeping in script calling upon Allah subhanahu Wata highlighter slayed him until such time approach.

00:42:04--> 00:42:21

The Muslim Dean came in at the time of fudger. And they found him and Abu hanifa still sitting in the same position he was in from the day before at a time when law he didn't even get up for vote. And one will do a state pondering and thinking on this verse. They said What's wrong with you yet in

00:42:23--> 00:42:35

law, he started reciting the verses. That's an absolute good deed except that we will be revealed. Not an atom's worth of bad deed except that it will be revealed when

00:42:39--> 00:42:44

we will be destruction to him. That's his name is Laura does not give him mercy

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

and

00:42:49--> 00:42:55

grace monitor our deeds My dear brothers and sisters. And on the day of judgment when the books will be revealed.

00:42:56--> 00:43:06

Everybody i'd also saw cinema sitting with Ayesha Lavanya I'm just concluding Shall I shall be a loved one who was sitting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when his

00:43:07--> 00:43:08

head

00:43:09--> 00:43:20

when his cheek was on her lap, he was lying down sleeping on her lap. Which is a good advice for some husbands or wives to share and share intimacy and closeness

00:43:22--> 00:43:31

when it shouldn't be a loved one How was striking but you know, he's here with the fingers and then her to drop onto the cheek of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Yeah.

00:43:32--> 00:43:33

This woke up.

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

And he said to me, America, ha ha. What's wrong with you? Ayesha? Is everything okay? Why are you crying?

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

so long?

00:43:46--> 00:43:52

I just started thinking about the Day of Judgment here after. We remember the people we used to love.

00:43:53--> 00:44:01

Will we remember the people we used to love our husbands? our children, our fathers, our mothers do we remember them?

00:44:02--> 00:44:04

crossbow sauce and then syrup strike

00:44:05--> 00:44:06

very seriously.

00:44:07--> 00:44:09

And his face went pale. He said

00:44:12--> 00:44:13

on that day, there will be three

00:44:16--> 00:44:17

three stances.

00:44:19--> 00:44:21

way no way you will need anyone else to kick themselves.

00:44:25--> 00:44:27

When they are crossing they'll sit off

00:44:31--> 00:44:33

when the scales are brought,

00:44:34--> 00:44:40

to where you're dealing with and when the records are about to do.

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

What have you.

00:44:49--> 00:44:50

prophets,

00:44:51--> 00:44:52

prophets

00:44:55--> 00:44:58

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

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

Add

00:45:04--> 00:45:05

me

00:45:08--> 00:45:12

on that day you shall be displayed. Not a single secret will be hidden from you.

00:45:15--> 00:45:23

Man oh Dr. Kita biani less for those who received the book in there right?

00:45:31--> 00:45:34

He will call out to everyone everyone read my book.

00:45:42--> 00:45:50

One law he I believed in this day when I receive my book I believed in the hereafter I believed in the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:46:04--> 00:46:07

me

00:46:13--> 00:46:15

Hania

00:46:16--> 00:46:25

suddenly he's in Paradise, it's fruit is dangling easy for him to reach, eat and drink comfortably and enjoy your life forever.

00:46:26--> 00:46:27

As a reward

00:46:28--> 00:46:54

for the days that meant nothing that past that we're never going to last anyway. The long days that are forgotten, or m m and o t Akita who Mishima Lee asked for the one who received the book in the in the left for your boy Yeah, Ethan 11 oh takita via he will say Oh, I wish I never received my records. Or

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

I wish I didn't even ask for my records to be shown.

00:47:02--> 00:47:05

When I'm as an email, hey, Serbia.

00:47:08--> 00:47:22

Paul, I wish I wish that this day would be my destruction. I wish I could have died. I wish I could have been like the animals turned into dust. cobia gone. I wish I never were to be raised again.

00:47:23--> 00:47:24

And the law says who

00:47:26--> 00:47:52

Halekulani. So Tanya, oh, my parent wealth failed me. Allah says take him and encompassing change the size of this and that and place them into hellfire. And I finish it with this beautiful hadith of hope. On the day of judgment, Allah subhanho wa Taala will call out to the angels to say to them, call for this person. And they will call you by your name by your name.

00:47:53--> 00:47:59

And the angel will say Fulani bufala someone says son of someone Sir, come

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

this hadith is a symptom tirmidhi. So also part of it is in Muslim. Part of it is in Buhari. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to gather all the different parts and different narrations and put it in one story for you. So I don't want people to come and say where is this full, heavy, it's not a full Hadith. I'm bringing all the Sahaba and putting them together to make this story for you. The angels will call out so and so son of so and so come to a judgment from your Lord and you will be called the believer will be called and then Russia Salim said the light of anomalies to encompass this person until the angels no longer see you.

00:48:36--> 00:48:38

So you're hidden from the eyes.

00:48:39--> 00:48:41

You ready to hear the end of the story?

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

Yes.

00:48:43--> 00:49:13

So then Allah subhanho wa Taala begins to call this person to come closer. I also saw Selim says that Allah will say when you come closer, so you come closer, you come closer you come closer, I also saw Salim said Allah will speak to him when he Sabina who have been enlightened human, there is no interpreter between you and Allah he will understand what Allah is saying to you. And there will only be available between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala and then Allah will say to you,

00:49:15--> 00:49:45

my servant, do you remember when you did such and such a bad deed in secret and no one else saw you except me? And he will say yes, I do remember? Didn't you know that there will be a god? Allah me your Lord who would judge you today and say yes, you're up. Didn't you know that our punish yesira weren't sure whether I was watching you? Don't you respect me? Don't you respect you let me start to say this to this person until the person says you're not pleased for you to throw me into Hellfire is better than to question me like this. Please just throw me in the hellfire. I'm done. I'm done. It's over.

00:49:46--> 00:49:59

Then Allah says, Wait, what about this date? So it brings up a great Abed date. What about this little secret? I haven't finished with you yet. When you did this, didn't you know a lord is watching it, didn't you?

00:50:00--> 00:50:27

Know this and he repeats the same thing over and over reprimanding until the person says, yo, please, please throw me into hellfire. I'm ready. I cannot face you. Then Allah says, Wait, what about this deed? He brings up a great deed. You and You did it in secret? How dare you do even that? Even worse, even worse, and he continues to do that when a person says you're up throwing me into Hellfire throw me into Hellfire throw me into Hellfire, until finally the person says I have no chance of entering paradise.

00:50:29--> 00:50:31

Is this world called me for?

00:50:32--> 00:50:37

To tell me this? So then Allah Subhana, Allah says, my server

00:50:39--> 00:50:59

and in the interpretation of it is, why don't you keep it a secret? As if a lie saying that your servants said, says, I was shy and embarrassed of you, my lord. I never disclosed this to anyone. I was embarrassed about it. I felt guilty about it. So then the last pantalla will say to him or her?

00:51:02--> 00:51:04

Didn't you realize something

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

to her and

00:51:09--> 00:51:11

I kept it a secret covered

00:51:12--> 00:51:16

in the former life. If I wanted to, I could have exposed you but I didn't.

00:51:17--> 00:51:19

Didn't you give that a bit of thought.

00:51:20--> 00:51:31

So too, ha la casa de mia polyoma esto Holic I kept it a secret in a former life. And today, I will also keep it a secret between you and me.

00:51:32--> 00:51:53

No Angel will know about it. Your records will not have it there are raised and only you and I will ever know this. Then Allah reminds you of a good deed that you've ever done.
