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

Rahim

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

al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While earlier he was having a Jemaine

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

we are speaking about this long series about the hereafter.

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

And last week we began our first session about

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

the last section of this long series, which is paradise.

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

We are talking about gender.

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

And last week, we spoke about the last personal energen,

00:00:52--> 00:00:55

the lowest level of the people in general.

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

And we saw that even the lowest person

00:01:00--> 00:01:07

can get what the eyes never seen, and what is have never heard, and what hearts have never imagined.

00:01:09--> 00:01:10

And we explained

00:01:11--> 00:01:19

that although in general, there are things that you can be familiar with in this world, such as certain fruits,

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

and foods,

00:01:22--> 00:01:33

and sounds that you can familiarize yourself with in this world as mentioned in the quote, and the sooner It is nothing like what you see and hear in this world.

00:01:34--> 00:01:39

For example, an apple in general, when you say there are apples in general,

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

you can familiarize yourself with apples, you know that it's a fruit.

00:01:44--> 00:01:59

But is it the exact same fruit as you've tasted, in this word, like, isn't the most beautiful Apple most tastiest Apple, best looking Apple you've ever had in this world? Or it can exist in this world? No, no Apple can exist like the apple in Paradise, but it's an apple.

00:02:01--> 00:02:04

And we gave some examples and metaphors about that last week.

00:02:05--> 00:02:14

And whatever Allah mentions about the things in Genoa, they're only merely an example, to familiarize ourselves with it so that we can desire it.

00:02:16--> 00:02:18

Because no one can imagine.

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

You can never picture

00:02:21--> 00:02:27

exactly what is in general, you can only get an imaginary idea.

00:02:29--> 00:02:30

So therefore, last month,

00:02:32--> 00:02:44

he relates to us, the things that could be in Paradise, to the names of certain fruits and pleasures that we have in this world. But in that world, it's beyond their imagination.

00:02:45--> 00:02:52

And we mentioned that whatever the heart's desire is different to saying whatever the mind can think.

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

In general, actually,

00:02:55--> 00:02:58

it's what the hearts haven't desired.

00:02:59--> 00:03:02

There is a difference between the picture in the mind

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

because the mind can only think logical, but the heart can think beyond that.

00:03:10--> 00:03:16

And we mentioned last week that in this world, sometimes you experience the feeling

00:03:18--> 00:03:25

and you're not you're unable to explain that feeling in words, in the logical mind, isn't that right? happens to us sometimes.

00:03:26--> 00:03:45

So therefore, it's interesting that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam use the following expression, here, in Paradise, there are things that no eyes ever seen, and no ears have heard. One fiammetta I know that Allah subhanho wa Taala, called the bishop and now heart of any

00:03:47--> 00:04:03

human being has ever imagined. Not whatever mind or brain has imagined, you can probably use the word mind do because mine has different definitions. But whatever heart has even imagined, for the desires of the heart are far more

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

than the intellect of the mind.

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

Isn't that correct?

00:04:09--> 00:04:14

This is only to illustrate how beautiful Jelena is,

00:04:15--> 00:04:31

how much we should strive for this gentleman, that it's so worth it. It's so worth it. And today inshallah I want to begin with a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam quite important for all of us to understand. And I start with a question

00:04:32--> 00:04:39

are our deeds, the deeds that we do in this life, the prayer, the fasting,

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

the donations,

00:04:44--> 00:04:53

and so on our deeds worthy of paradise? The question our deeds worthy of paradise?

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

The answer is no. Our deeds are not worthy of paradise.

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

Meaning, can we say I worship the lost power dialer for 1000 years and now I deserve paradise because of my worship? meaning is paradise equal to the worship?

00:05:13--> 00:05:17

Is that its price is the worship enough to buy paradise?

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

No.

00:05:21--> 00:05:27

In actual reality, there is no price that Kumbaya paradise there is no price that you can put on gender

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

at all, like

00:05:30--> 00:05:40

for example, a person donates $100 and says with this $100 I deserve for those now, the highest place in Paradise, there is no equation.

00:05:42--> 00:05:43

There is no equation.

00:05:45--> 00:05:57

And evidence to this is the Sahih Hadith which is in Bukhari, and similar in Muslim the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once said to his companions, layer the whole region netta hadn't been many

00:05:58--> 00:06:05

Kala anti Rasul Allah, Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah tala Madani Allahu Bharat Mata minha photo,

00:06:06--> 00:06:07

no one

00:06:08--> 00:06:11

shall enter Paradise just because of their deeds.

00:06:12--> 00:06:28

They asked a messenger of Allah, not even you, he said, not even I accept if Allah encompasses me with his pleasure and his mercy, what is the process and him telling us here for the person who listens to this hadith or fine was it will seem as though there is a contradiction?

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

There is no contradiction. Even though our law says in various verses in the Quran,

00:06:35--> 00:06:43

you have received paradise as a result of your work Bhima I mean, constantly a lot of better deeds and then paradise.

00:06:46--> 00:07:11

And he talks about salat, and Zakat and fasting then he says, the result of which will be paradise. Is there a contradiction between the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim Ayat of the Quran No, there isn't actually why it's language you will understand the context are also saw Salam is not saying that if you do if you do good deeds, it will not earn you paradise. No, no, no. The letter Bad.

00:07:12--> 00:07:18

Bad Lafayette Hotel ginetta Hudson Bay Amelie no one will enter Paradise be his actions.

00:07:19--> 00:07:27

The letter here implies two meanings. It can mean the result of or in exchange for.

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

So for example, if you want to buy a car,

00:07:32--> 00:07:49

or you want to buy a house, when you buy a piece of garment that you want to wear, it has a particular price. And if it's overpriced, you say, this is overpriced, this has to do, this is not what it's worth. So you want to buy, for example, a simple

00:07:50--> 00:08:36

ad for model Gemini. For the price of a Lamborghini, you would say this is absurd. Or you want to buy a T shirt that you find in the Kmart store, as opposed to a T shirt that's, you know, made by a very expensive brand name and it's the material is quite expensive, and you price them the same. You say to yourself, this is not equal. This is not fair. You can't please so in this life, we know what something is worth. But in general, our deeds are not worthy of what's in store for us in general, is this a good thing or a bad thing? This is an extraordinary thing. This is a beautiful thing from Allah. This is a generosity from Allah subhanaw taala although our deeds are not worthy, Allah

00:08:36--> 00:08:42

subhanaw taala will multiply our deeds to be worthy in his suppiler Hall to him,

00:08:43--> 00:08:46

he will count our rewards enormous for gender.

00:08:48--> 00:09:02

But what we actually do earn therefore is the pleasure of Allah His generosity and his mercy when we do our deeds. And therefore Allah, Allah says, Take, take from my generosity, what you wish, and more.

00:09:04--> 00:09:07

Another question that I want to emphasize as well

00:09:08--> 00:09:18

is worshiping Allah for the goal of reaching paradise and for the goal of being swerved away from Hellfire a correct way of believing.

00:09:20--> 00:09:32

For example, some people some sects of this Deen have made a mistake in this belief. They say that the ultimate goal is to worship Allah.

00:09:33--> 00:09:40

Just for Allah out of love for Allah. Loving paradise desiring for paradise fearing Hellfire has nothing to do with it.

00:09:41--> 00:09:53

They say this is the ultimate goal. Our answer to that is that it is against it contradicts the sooner and it contradicts the desires of the prophets as well and the companions who are far greater than us

00:09:54--> 00:09:56

are also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

he worshiped the last panel diet.

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

I'd love for Gemini as well out of fear of his janin the companions of the Prophet SAW send them worship the law of love for paradise and out of fear from jahannam as well and there are numerous a hadith and eight in the Quran, which tell us about this Otherwise, why would Allah subhanahu wa ala describe gender in such absolute magnificent magnificence?

00:10:24--> 00:10:33

Why would the last month that I tell the process that I'm what he has and what Khadija Donna would have, for example, in Paradise, and speak so much about it?

00:10:34--> 00:10:39

Why would I lost my tie? Let's say in Allah hasta, la mina, meaning

00:10:44--> 00:10:56

Allah has bought from the believers, they're sold themselves, their bodies in exchange that they will have gentlemen, why would Allah spent Allah put that absolute pleasure that in exchange for that,

00:10:57--> 00:11:02

if it wasn't the last point that I wanted us to yearn and desire agenda and fear Hellfire?

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

This is the nature of the human being.

00:11:07--> 00:11:14

Why would I lost pantalla tell us about agenda which no eyes ever seen or heard has ever imagined he has ever heard? Why would he give us these descriptions?

00:11:17--> 00:11:26

Allah subhanahu wa taala wants us to worship him for Jenna and fear hellfire. This is why we love Allah.

00:11:28--> 00:11:53

When Allah describes what he has in store for us, we begin to love our last panel data. When I lost my dad tells us about Hellfire we face punishments upon our dialogue, and that helps us in living, a beautiful life. yearning, the meeting of Allah. Nevertheless, the ultimate goal is to be engine to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala to meet Allah subhanaw taala in general.

00:11:56--> 00:12:05

Because the last panel data will not let us see him or meet him, except in general. So our goal is gender.

00:12:08--> 00:12:11

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam

00:12:13--> 00:12:19

is our we mentioned last week that in general, you get to wish for anything you desire, man or woman.

00:12:22--> 00:12:35

And the question that arise the other week was the following. Is our wishes in paradise. Unconditional? Like, are we allowed to wish for anything at all?

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

unconditionally?

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

For example,

00:12:42--> 00:12:44

are we allowed to wish

00:12:45--> 00:13:01

to take the level or degree of someone else in paradise? Are we allowed to wish to have someone else's spouse in paradise? Are we allowed to wish for someone to be taken out of paradise? Can we wish for these things? No, we can't wish for these things.

00:13:03--> 00:13:27

And there are two reasons for that. Number one, this is an injustice. And in Paradise, there is no injustice. And number two, Allah subhanaw taala promised us that we will earn what we worked for. So if a person worked for the higher places in general, and they earned it and a person worked and earned the lower places of gender, and they took it over, then this will be adjusted by our last panel with Darla as well.

00:13:29--> 00:13:30

in Paradise,

00:13:32--> 00:13:33

we don't say

00:13:34--> 00:13:40

that you will not get what you wish. But rather we say you will be satisfied with whatever Allah Allah has given you.

00:13:42--> 00:14:04

We don't say you will settle for what you have in general, meaning Allah gives you this and that so you have to settle for it. We say you will be overwhelmed with satisfaction with whatever allotment Allah gives you in any degree you may be. And therefore, it won't even cross the minds or the hearts of any individual in paradise to wish a will

00:14:06--> 00:14:18

for someone else's degree for someone else's property. The last part that will satisfy the servants and we spoke last week about an agenda The one who is at the lowest place of gender, what he will get or she will get

00:14:19--> 00:14:23

they're overwhelmed with satisfaction that their imagination runs out.

00:14:25--> 00:14:28

We also mentioned last week that Allah subhanaw taala tells us no

00:14:29--> 00:14:32

one has an MFA Colombe him Minh.

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

And we will take out of their hearts, all the negative desires. So no one will be jealous of anyone in general. No one will will hate will hate anyone in general, no one will want revenge from anyone in general. No one will remember the hardships as in, they will not suffer from the sadness or the pain of any hardships they used to encounter.

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

A former life, all the negatives are gone, and only the positives remaining Jen.

00:15:05--> 00:15:08

Which brings me to another question which is quite interesting.

00:15:09--> 00:15:10

Will we engender

00:15:13--> 00:15:14

envy Anyone else?

00:15:17--> 00:15:28

And another question is indifference this life, we enjoy certain luxuries and certain decorations, because we get to show it off in front of other people

00:15:29--> 00:15:36

will we have that same desire in general. I mean, what makes a person in this life

00:15:37--> 00:15:38

like to look nice?

00:15:40--> 00:15:49

What makes those people who desire looks and they're obsessed with looks to go and get surgery, plastic surgery and spend millions of dollars.

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

Who do they want to impress?

00:15:53--> 00:16:16

There are people who are who donate everything they have for that cause to impress others and are driven to madness, and impressing other people. But on a on a normal scale, even us, as normal human beings, not self obsessed with image. We like to look nice in front of other people. Obviously, this is a desire of showing off what we have.

00:16:18--> 00:16:26

Your wife likes to look nice for you and you like to look nice for her in order to increase the intimacy and the love and the affection and the desire and the attraction.

00:16:28--> 00:16:35

At the same time, your same wife likes to wear attractive clothing to show it in front of her friends.

00:16:37--> 00:16:42

And you like to wear perfume and cologne when you get out of home for example, for other people to smell and enjoy.

00:16:45--> 00:16:49

There is a difference between showing off in order to bring

00:16:52--> 00:17:03

in order with a negative feeling like making others suffer for what you have, which they don't have, and showing off in the sense that you like to share beauty with others.

00:17:05--> 00:17:06

You like to look presentable

00:17:07--> 00:17:11

there is there's a difference between when you compliment your friend or your brother or sister.

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

Because you sincerely love or you sincerely

00:17:19--> 00:17:28

are happy for what they have. And when you compliment someone but you're really being two faced about it. Because you envy them, you're jealous of them. You hate what they have.

00:17:30--> 00:18:16

There's a difference. And the proposal I sell them one said don't show off what you wear. And one man said he had a suit a lot a person likes to wear nice clothing, nice shoes. He said in a large I mean on your herbal gem and Allah is beautiful, he loves beauty. What we are talking about is wearing out of proudness to believe to be little others in order for you to climb above them in whatever that may be beauty or status or wealth or whatever it is. Nevertheless, we find enjoyment when we dress up to impress others in a good way or in a bad way. in general. There is nothing in the Sunnah of the Quran of the sooner that neglects this. For him paradise there is attraction

00:18:16--> 00:18:33

between the husband and the wife, the spouses, between you and others, you will meet other people that have great honour for example, in Paradise, some clothing of the people of the above the ones who are granted above you and you will meet them and you will love what they have.

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

And in one hand it says that you meet them in places of gatherings. And we begin to exchange notes from one another and you return back and you spent your meet your spouse's men and women will meet each other spouses make spouses, and they say you look more beautiful than before your wife says that to you and you say that to her.

00:18:53--> 00:18:56

So obviously, there is exchange there is

00:18:58--> 00:19:06

imprint you like to make an impression in paradise. However, the element the negative element of it is taken away, what is the negative element?

00:19:08--> 00:19:25

envy and to have an envious feeling by not liking what the other person is? Having a luxury and wanting the good of the other person to be gone, being jealous? That doesn't exist in paradise.

00:19:27--> 00:19:31

Did you not hear the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is also saw him Muslim.

00:19:32--> 00:19:44

He talks about people who love one another for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala he said and with the help that Allah Allah says and what I have buena fi Island man abirami neutrino melkonian

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

the ones who love each other for my sake, and you may hate qualities in each other. But you will you will neglect those bad qualities because that person is a strong believer in Allah and is a practicing Muslim. So you love that person for the sake of Allah. Allah

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

What I have been iffy, the ones who love each other for me, for my sake, will be in the Hereafter, on high towers of beautiful light, he has a beautiful woman nebia Shahada, when

00:20:13--> 00:20:16

the martyrs and the prophets will envy them.

00:20:18--> 00:20:27

What is this envy here? This envy meaning that the prophets in the martyrs, it will delight what they see in this person.

00:20:29--> 00:20:33

It'll attract their eyes, they'll love what they see, it'll entertain their eyes,

00:20:34--> 00:20:44

but not in the meaning of envy is in a negative meaning. That why have they got that and we haven't got that not like that out of the way. Let's talk about profits and matters this way.

00:20:45--> 00:20:54

Young people whom, meaning they're attracted what they see, they like what they see, they're happy for what they see. It attracts their attention.

00:20:55--> 00:21:02

So for prophets and martyrs, who have what they have in Paradise, it's beyond what we can describe,

00:21:03--> 00:21:23

you know, you think to yourself, what could they possibly be anything for the martyrs and pattern and prophets in Paradise, to be attracted more than what they already have? Let me give you an example in this world, if you say you are a famous person who has all the wealth of the world and anything you desire, you have everything that every man or woman can desire.

00:21:25--> 00:22:07

You might say to yourself, this person, there is nothing that they will desire more. So, no matter how attractive you you look or what what you may have, will not attract them more than what because they already have things beyond what you can possibly afford. So the barters in the profits, you said yourself in Paradise, what they have, there is nothing that can possibly attract them more than that. Yet, here we have a hadith from SA Selim telling us that there will be something that they will look at and they'll be surprised with it will attract their eyes, but in a good way. So well, it's like this. Wow, that's really, that's something magnificent, I'm happy for you.

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

really young, beautiful woman, Nebula Shahada, when the martyrs and the prophets will envy what they say meaning, the love what you have, it will attract them and say this is something this is something worthy.

00:22:24--> 00:22:30

So therefore there is that in paradise bit in a good way. And the last month Allah knows best about its deeper description.

00:22:33--> 00:22:36

There is a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is also so here,

00:22:38--> 00:22:41

that in Paradise, there are degrees

00:22:42--> 00:22:44

and in the Quran, it talks about degrees in paradise.

00:22:46--> 00:22:52

And each person will be delegated their own degree in accordance with the amount of struggle and effort

00:22:53--> 00:22:55

that they put forth in this life of goodness.

00:22:57--> 00:23:06

The struggle and effort is not in itself, what earns you the degree, but it is what emanates from your heart when you do that act abubaker rhodiola han

00:23:08--> 00:23:11

an example of him, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said,

00:23:12--> 00:23:15

my fellow kokum Ababa krin.

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

Because Because Rotom in salette, in OC ocm, and also Dhaka, Abu Bakr radi, Allahu anhu, did not exceed all of you.

00:23:25--> 00:23:45

Because he did more prayers or more sadaqa, or more fasting than any one of you. Some of you could have possibly done a little bit more than abubaker delana in actions when I can, but it was Shay Anwar Cora. She called me fakulti. He was a de cobalamin but it is because of something that he reached in degree inside of his heart in here.

00:23:46--> 00:23:47

And his actions confirmed it.

00:23:49--> 00:23:53

So some acts, you may be praying for example next to another person.

00:23:54--> 00:24:11

And that person is pretty praying the same prayer. You look at a lot of pies in the same way, but this person what he is feeling inside, or she's feeling inside, maybe something that earns them greater rewards than you while you are praying the same prayers. This is something of how you know Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:24:13--> 00:24:32

So the degrees are given to you in paradise in accordance to this. And the prophecy I send them said that people of the lower heavens or the lower paradises or gardens will look above to the people of the higher degrees and the way they will see them their properties will be so far of a distance, like the way one of you sees the stars in the sky.

00:24:34--> 00:24:50

You know, when you look at stars in the sky, this is how they will be in their degrees, some people really high and therefore the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to say, when you ask Allah Dinah asked for alpha dose, Allah always supplicated the highest places in paradise.

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

So there are degrees in general, but Will you look at that and envy it saying, Why has this person got it? I wish it was for me.

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

No, you'll be satisfied with what you have. But will you be allowed to see what they have? Yes, you will? Will you be allowed to go? Can you wish to go and meet that person up there to go into and visit them? Yes, you will. You will even be allowed to wish to meet the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Imagine that. Imagine that you're in paradise.

00:25:20--> 00:25:23

And you say, I want to sit with the prophets, Allah send them

00:25:24--> 00:25:42

for a few long moments. Why am I saying moments, not years or days, because in general, there are no more there is no more time that you can count. There is no more time that you can count. There's nothing you can say day or night years. In fact, you don't need to.

00:25:43--> 00:26:20

For you have all the time, endless time. And there's nothing to rush to. You don't have to make an appointment with someone like in this world in Paradise is made easy. No appointments. No, no restriction of time. And the process and him can see everyone at the same time as well. And you can see everyone at the same time if you will, in a way that Allah spent Allah can make it for you. So if you want to wish to meet the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you can meet him with a prophecy or send them his where he is up in the upper heavens, up in the upper paradises if you want

00:26:21--> 00:26:39

and you can sit with him and speak with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and see him. I also saw Selim told us Maharani Philomena forgot Ronnie hopko whoever sees me I'll come a call whoever sees me in their dreams, then he has really truly seen me meaning you are going to see me in the hereafter you are going to meet me in paradise, you're going to be with me inshallah.

00:26:42--> 00:27:08

inshallah. So if you meet the prophets I send him paradise Imagine you're sitting there and ask him whatever you wish, asked the process and and whatever you want, all those hobbies that you read, all those stories that you read about the battles and the meetings as well as sell them and the affection of troops or send them and his family and things that you heard about. You want to know them in reality, you can then sit there and ask the professor send them about it off.

00:27:10--> 00:27:25

You can sit there imagine in Paradise, and you want to meet your family members that have surpassed you in good deeds and they have earned higher places Can you meet them? Yes, you can. Allah Allah says no Quran called Malema shadow energy Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.

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

Medina No What about Maria?

00:27:32--> 00:27:34

Ayman al Hakuna

00:27:37--> 00:27:47

oma Latina manana Li him. She and those who believed in this life and they died.

00:27:48--> 00:27:52

And their offspring, they follow them in the same belief.

00:27:53--> 00:27:58

They will be reunited engine, there'll be reunited, engine.

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

But those of their family members who are on higher degrees will not lose their rewards, they won't lose their degrees. Meaning when you are reunited, it's not that

00:28:14--> 00:28:18

those who are in upper degrees will come down and lose their degrees to be reunited with you

00:28:19--> 00:28:35

know, will you use your lose your degree or whatever you have to be reunited with your family reunion in general means that you will meet and visit and spend time with them as much as you like. I'll give you an example. In this life. We all have family.

00:28:37--> 00:28:38

But is it necessary

00:28:40--> 00:29:20

that when I say to you, you are united with your family in this life and doesn't necessarily mean that you all live in exactly the same house in the same room sharing the same bed? No. You have your father, your mother, your uncle's your Auntie's, your spouse's your children, you can be united. But in separate homes. You can even be in separate suburbs, or in separate countries are you still communicate, you still visit? Isn't that right? And you have that communication. So you are united in gender. This is how the reunion with the families will be. You get to visit to sit with, to communicate, to meet to go on journeys to fly together if you like

00:29:21--> 00:29:37

to fly together in general, let's take a flight. You don't need any aeroplanes. You can have horses in general, if you will, with beautiful wings made of pills and whatever you want. And they can talk to you if you like and you can fly on these horses. They'll fly like birds, if you will, if you wish.

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

You can have carriages, which you and your spouse will sit in and have as many horses as you like forget about Santa Claus and his Randy's in general, you'll have something beyond that. If this is what man can imagine and draw for you, and animate for you on television. Then imagine when Allah spent when the process and tells us what no heart has ever desired.

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

In general, it'll be beyond your imagination.

00:30:04--> 00:30:05

Imagine that.

00:30:06--> 00:30:46

So the meetings in general, are always there, you will meet people and you will see that you will not be jealous. And you will not wish for others to lose what they have. But rather, you will be delighted of what you have. So you'll get the pleasure of enjoying what you see, you know, sometimes, you don't really need to go anywhere far to enjoy yourself here in this life, but your family in the car and just go off to somewhere nearby to enjoy the view. Take yourself, you know, if you're driving some of their lookout points here, and you just stopped then you look out in the laws world, just by looking at that beautiful nature of a lost paradise that brings happiness and delight

00:30:46--> 00:31:15

into your heart, right, even though you don't own any of it. But just looking at it. So in general, getting to look at your family and your friends and other people's properties in general is a delight for you. But obviously, there are some things that you'll be restricted from. There's a hadith from from Salah Salem where he says in his dreams He ascended to, he went into heaven, He really saw sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he said I saw before me a beautiful woman, like none II has ever seen. And my heart desires

00:31:16--> 00:31:17

to come and meet this woman.

00:31:19--> 00:31:26

But then I heard that she was almost no hotjobs wife, but the other one he said so I turned away

00:31:28--> 00:31:37

now all my hotline is hearing the process and I'm saying this and and he began to cry for the loved one and the promises and said now you PK Alma

00:31:39--> 00:31:42

because I sent him said I walked away.

00:31:44--> 00:31:53

You know, maybe I'm a little hotdog fulfill. You know the theater that you know, you're coming. This is my wife that feeling that protectiveness.

00:31:54--> 00:31:56

And he cried.

00:31:57--> 00:32:15

And the processor asked him a PK on what's making you cry. He said I like a lot of Salalah Am I gonna feel the overprotectiveness over my wife? Because of you a messenger of God? How will I ever feel like that I will never feel against you yet also La la la la, la, la, la, la, la, la.

00:32:16--> 00:32:18

Something Yanni we're lucky that

00:32:21--> 00:32:26

we can never be in the status of Otto la qayyarah solo. So prophesize tell me speaking about

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

gender.

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

And

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

what you can see in gender and you are restricted from certain things in paradise.

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

your spouse's, your spouse, their spouses, their spouse, and no one will wish for someone else's spouse to be satisfied with what you have and you will love them and adore them. Men will love their women and their women and the women will love them and

00:32:52--> 00:32:54

now last week, we had

00:32:55--> 00:32:57

a particular question.

00:32:58--> 00:33:02

What does paradise mean and where did it come from?

00:33:03--> 00:33:09

In Arabic or in the Quran and Sunnah. You will often hear the term agenda being said,

00:33:10--> 00:33:15

the local agenda to Allah t y del Mata Khun that is Jenna,

00:33:16--> 00:33:21

for which those who protect themselves from the displeasure of a Lost Planet Allah will enter.

00:33:22--> 00:33:29

I don't like to use the word fear those who fear Allah because you can misunderstand but emoticon meaning those who guard themselves

00:33:30--> 00:33:31

from

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

the forbidden things

00:33:37--> 00:33:44

out of love for our last panel with Todd, you don't want to just please the last pantalla with you so you love him so much. you prove it by abstaining from the things that he told you.

00:33:45--> 00:33:50

Stay away from he actually proved that love this way as Muslims is what we are taught.

00:33:53--> 00:34:29

paradise in English, actually is derived from the word or is it the other way around? paradise sounds like the word for those. For those means paradise. paradise means for those. It's an ancient word. Even before the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim was sent. It was used with the Hebrews. The Jews used it the Christians used that way before. As I said Moses and the prophets before a Brahma is sent him way before they use the word for those paradise, Arden Aden as well.

00:34:30--> 00:34:44

In the Quran, we hear a new term called Jenna, which means gardens. Why does Allah spawn? Or what is the wisdom behind the word garden? Well, you see brothers and sisters, who was the Quran first revealed to which type of people

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

the Arabs in the deserts and how many God is the hero of in deserts? Not many. In fact, gardens in deserts for a better one or an Arab living in the desert is something they can only dream of.

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

Those days, and nowadays a little bit different. But in those days, an Arab living in the desert is only something to dream of gardens of greenery. When you say garden, you think greenery, green vegetation, fruit, waters and fountains, rivers.

00:35:16--> 00:35:40

You think of relaxation of the mind and the spirit sitting, hearing the stream of rivers, traveling as though they are beneath your feet, the sounds of harmony, birds, and animals around you, everybody, when they think of that image, think of that feeling whether you are living in the desert or not. It's a harmonious feeling.

00:35:41--> 00:35:47

In fact, when you see ads on television, talking about beauty, let's say shampoo, for example, they often

00:35:48--> 00:36:09

accompany with the sound of streams, greenery, birds, isn't that right? This is one of the ways that they attract to, to that experience, the experience of nice smelling things pleasant things. So when I lost my dad speaks gin garden for the first time in the corner and two bad ones and two Arabs in the desert.

00:36:10--> 00:36:19

It tells us that Jenna, Allah describes it in ways that appeal to every single human being in any given circumstances.

00:36:20--> 00:37:04

So in ancient times, it's Eden the Garden of Eden, or it is called for DOS paradise, and other times it is called a hooded gender to hold the life of eternity, or where the place of residence for eternity there are many different names the paradise and we are only given a small amount of names and descriptions of Paradise in the Quran and the Sunnah, to illustrate to us, that no matter what you want, it will be there. For any person that whether you are a better one living in the desert who desires greenery and water, you will get it or whether you already live in greenery and water, you will get other things that you desire beyond your imagination. If you think this greenery in

00:37:04--> 00:37:08

water, that is what is beautiful on this earth, then there are things beyond that imagination.

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

So Allah subhanaw taala addresses every person in accordance with what they desire. In other words, anything that you desire, you will get anything that you lack in this world that you would have wished for in this world you can wish for in general. This is why a lot more than one of the reasons why we hear the word Jenna gardens, just so that the clarify. Some people might say, Well, I have many gods I'm been to beautiful streams, that's going to be boring. What's What's there in general,

00:37:38--> 00:37:45

only to tell you that you will have whatever you wish for that you couldn't get in this life, you will get it there. And beyond that imagination, of course.

00:37:46--> 00:37:55

And whatever you already do have in this life, it was described in the same way, then in general, it's beyond what you think. If you thought you saw it all. Think again.

00:37:59--> 00:38:00

Another question?

00:38:03--> 00:38:14

Often, women feel that they are left out when we speak about the property and the pleasures of paradise.

00:38:15--> 00:38:24

As though the Quran and the Sunnah. It seems as if it's only addressing the men are often addressing the men and leaving the women out, such as referring to hold a line,

00:38:25--> 00:38:27

the women's spouses of gender,

00:38:28--> 00:38:30

addressing the men in the masculine term,

00:38:32--> 00:38:37

we find that a lot of women usually asked the question, Well, what about us? What do we get?

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

One brother said to me? Well, I heard that

00:38:43--> 00:38:51

women will be the most beautiful of women in Paris. That's the reward. Is that really the only reward women get?

00:38:52--> 00:39:00

And another question is, do they get property in paradise like the men get property? The answer is yes, of course. Of course.

00:39:01--> 00:39:05

It is not your choice that Allah created you a man and a woman a woman.

00:39:06--> 00:39:10

And it is a lost pantalla who guaranteed for us that if we strive

00:39:12--> 00:39:26

towards paradise will receive the reward men or women because Allah specifically mentions men and women in various chapters in the Quran. Men and women who do good men and women who pray men and women who fast they will have and then he unifies the reward.

00:39:29--> 00:39:51

In the Quran, a person a brother asked me, not in the Quran, a brother asked me, Do women have property? Yes, they have property. Do we not hear the verse in the Quran in sort of the terrain where the wife of Pharaoh who was tortured and embraced Islam in secret and wildflower and his soldiers were torturing her.

00:39:53--> 00:39:57

She said, As Allah says in the Quran. One more.

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

One more

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

phenomena is a call and that sort of bibiani is

00:40:05--> 00:40:31

going on a genie mean phenomena. Why many when a genie minakami avani mean? And the wife of Pharaoh, when she said under torture, oh my lord, build for me a castle, a palace, a house with you in Paradise and save me from crown and his actions and save me from the oppression of the people who oppress.

00:40:33--> 00:40:39

Is there a property for her or not? Of course there is. Is this property only for the man? No.

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

She is a woman. And I want to allow your attention to something very important here to get rid of this fly that's bugging me. So Panama

00:40:51--> 00:40:54

doesn't want me to talk about paradise. paradise. There's no bugging flies by the way.

00:40:56--> 00:40:58

The sorry, the wife of Pharaoh.

00:40:59--> 00:41:13

We hear of her being the wife of a majestic king. He has everything. In fact, he went to the point of saying, I do not know any other God but myself for you. Don't you see the rivers are flowing beneath my command.

00:41:14--> 00:41:16

The Nile River, I order it as I will.

00:41:18--> 00:41:28

She had everything she had everything that any woman will desire in those days, like anything tangible that you can touch that you can feel.

00:41:29--> 00:41:35

She had them as luxurious homes, palaces that they could imagine in those days.

00:41:36--> 00:42:08

He had he or she is saying, oh my lord, build me a palace with you in paradise. There is double the reward here, number one, a greater palace than what she could imagine this life. Why is she asking for power? It's like she's saying what I have here my lord is insignificant, it's rubbish. It's nothing. I want one with you. The second reward, I want it to be near you. So now a woman not only gets property in Paradise, but she gets to be in a location close

00:42:10--> 00:42:42

to Allah subhanaw taala What does that mean? We don't mean that Allah spent Allah has a location Allah, Allah is beyond location, time and space. However, for his the creation of location however, Allah subhanho wa Taala she is saying I want to be new meaning me as a person, I want to be in a place where I can be near to you in feeling and I can see you and I can speak to you. So put me wherever in general, but I want to be near to you, I want to speak to you I want to see you on a mainstream I load

00:42:43--> 00:42:46

so that whenever I will, you either Suppan

00:42:47--> 00:42:52

probably be under cabeza fit agenda. This is what she said.

00:42:53--> 00:43:04

Another question, since men can get many hoor somehow they state 7072 maximum, the minimum or receive two wives in general.

00:43:05--> 00:43:48

And we will talk and share a lot about the descriptions of these women in gender, inshallah, in later classes to come but for now, the women will ask, what do we get? Do we also get many men in general? First of all, I'd like to just pay your attention to something very important. The nature of the man and the woman. Obviously, Allah says, well, they said the crew can only the men, the male is not like the female, our wishes and our desires. In fact, our intimate desires, our sensual desires are very different. And our biological makeup is very different. Will our biological makeup be the same as it is an earth in paradise? Obviously not. But you will still be male and female.

00:43:50--> 00:43:51

Allah knows best.

00:43:52--> 00:43:53

The men

00:43:55--> 00:43:59

desires, many women in his nature.

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

And a man will not say this to his wife.

00:44:04--> 00:44:15

But you don't find a woman saying, Oh, we desire lots of husbands in this world. This is the nature of them how Allah has created them, the woman is more conservative than the men, generally speaking,

00:44:17--> 00:44:18

honoring and respecting

00:44:20--> 00:44:22

this modesty of the woman.

00:44:23--> 00:44:33

The Quran and the Sunnah does not concentrate on speaking about the husbands of the of the women in Paradise, and how beautiful they are and attractive and so on and so forth.

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

This is out of respect and modesty for the nature of the woman in her conservativeness in his life. This does not mean that she will not get spouses in paradise.

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

Also, it does not mean that she will get more than one spouse either way, however, the scholars do differ. And they'll claim that model Layali says I think is an OK mindset at last week. He says that they will have whatever

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

they desire, meaning it's possible that women may have more than one husband in paradise. Now in this realm of this life here in this world, it doesn't make sense to us to talk like that. In fact, it's very embarrassing. It's very rude

00:45:14--> 00:45:20

for a woman to even ask the question, or a man to say, you will get lots of men in paradise as their husbands

00:45:22--> 00:45:25

for the conservative or for the modesty

00:45:27--> 00:45:38

for the sake of modesty, it's not nice to say something like that to a woman in this life. Therefore, last month, I did not even say that for the woman in the Quran or in the sun.

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

But he speaks about the men because of the natural desire and inclination for that.

00:45:46--> 00:45:51

in Paradise, it is not fornication, it is not adultery.

00:45:52--> 00:46:00

The one who made marriage allowed in this life and for us to enjoy close intimacy as you know.

00:46:01--> 00:46:14

We consider it okay is the one who will make it okay in Paradise, there is no fornication or adultery Allah Subhana Allah says, was Arjuna who be holding in and we will make them marry or we will marry them.

00:46:15--> 00:46:30

Two women are beautiful lustrous eyes, and also the women will be married to extremely handsome men. This is based on the Hadith the prophet SAW Selim. When the spouse has made each other the husband makes the wife and the wife meets the husband.

00:46:32--> 00:46:38

After going on a journey and coming back, they say you are more beautiful than what I saw you before. And another Hadith the wife says to her husband and Jenna

00:46:41--> 00:46:53

and the husband says to his wife, there is nothing in this paradise more beautiful and enjoyable to me than you and she will say the same thing to him. There's only one thing that is more beautiful than all of this, my brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:46:55--> 00:47:06

the grace beauty in general. And the best thing that anyone can ever receive is the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala of seeing him and meeting him and speaking to him subhanho wa Taala

00:47:08--> 00:47:09

imagine yourself

00:47:11--> 00:47:13

entering gender in the lowest degree

00:47:16--> 00:47:32

and you have been given what you have been given. And suddenly you have two spouses, one more beautiful than the other. No envy, no grudges, no jealousy, none of what we feel here in this life, you are of a different form and shape, different feeling in paradise.

00:47:34--> 00:47:38

And you sing to one another. There is music in paradise.

00:47:39--> 00:47:41

There is music in paradise.

00:47:43--> 00:48:07

That is far more beautiful than any music anyone could ever have imagined in this life is the music which Allah subhanho wa Taala has created for you. The one who created the melodious tunes in this life is the one who will create far more magnificent melodious tunes in the afterlife. The one who created beauty in this life

00:48:08--> 00:48:11

and some views some beauties dazzle us

00:48:13--> 00:48:17

is the one who creates magnificence in beauty in the afterlife.

00:48:18--> 00:48:22

So work towards my dear brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:48:24--> 00:48:29

There is no grudges or hatred between the husband and wife in paradise between the spouses.

00:48:32--> 00:48:39

And when Allah subhanaw taala describes the prophet SAW Selim describes the features of the spouses in paradise.

00:48:40--> 00:48:43

They describe them in a particular feature.

00:48:44--> 00:48:52

So the form of the people in paradise are described in a particular form. Our solar system tells us you will be in paradise.

00:48:53--> 00:49:01

The height, or similar to the height of your father Adam alayhis salam so tonight Iran for summer 16 arm links into the sky

00:49:03--> 00:49:05

of perfect form of beautiful form.

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

On the shape of your father Adam, Allah has sent him Adam alayhis salam is the most beautiful being Allah has created. For last month, Allah says that He created him with his hands, laser chemistry he shaped what was semi albasini There is nothing like unto Allah and he hears and sees all things.

00:49:26--> 00:49:43

And he does have the beautiful form. So we will be like him in paradise. But we will look exactly the same. No, each person will look different to another and there are some who are more beautiful than others. Some men are more handsome than other men and some women will be more beautiful than other women. On top of what women will get in general

00:49:44--> 00:49:45

of

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

property and whatever they wish for and desire. On top of that, they beauty will be far more beautiful than the most beautiful of huddling in paradise. shoreline in paradise. literally means sure alive.

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

Sure,

00:50:02--> 00:50:09

sure denotes to the white part of the eyes, the white part of the eyes.

00:50:11--> 00:50:33

But when you say who it is beautiful whiteness in the eyes, again, meaning referring to the eyes, so they are lustrous, big, beautiful. And it talks about the color of the eyes on the inside the pupil of the iris is absolute darkness in black. It's absolute pitch black. It's a rarity in this life.

00:50:34--> 00:50:41

Does that mean that every shoulder in will have black irises?

00:50:42--> 00:50:47

Even though it's a rarity in this life? You know that? Yeah. Black Iris is in this like pitch black

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

is a rarity in our life here in this earth.

00:50:54--> 00:51:01

Why does Allah spot the islands messenger mentioned to us of this particular description? Is it because it's a one type one form? No.

00:51:02--> 00:51:39

It also mentions whiteness, there'll be white fair skinned. Does that mean that every woman every man in Paradise is fair skinned and white? No. Does that mean they're blond? No, some will be others won't. It's impossible to think this way even though the Quran and Sunnah does describe him in that form. But what because then you'll have a problem. The Quran does not support nationalism and racism. There'll be a problem with color. And also some people don't desire white, some people desire dark. But then again, who was the first sent down to the Arabs of the desert?

00:51:40--> 00:51:42

The Arabs of the desert, a dark and feature

00:51:43--> 00:51:47

and the most desirable look to them. The men especially

00:51:48--> 00:52:29

is the clear whiteness of large eyes that are large and big. What I mean by large not like a cow. I said once to some students be guys they are what like a cow. No, not like a cow. When you say big guys, you know what we mean? Beautiful lungs, extremely attractive eyes. Absolute whiteness, no red veins in there. No red arteries, no plenish nothing. And then the iris comes in so beautifully, says blackness is a rarity to the Arabs as well fear skin, a rarity to the Arabs of the desert those days as well. So because he was addressing the Arabs First, the Mexican versus the verses that describe the hotel and most of them are Mexican versus

00:52:31--> 00:52:32

in Makkah.

00:52:34--> 00:52:39

The men in Mecca wanted to stop the process and then kill the process. And then

00:52:40--> 00:52:48

the men in Mecca they mistreated women. There was a lot of there was mistreatment of women.

00:52:50--> 00:52:51

They degraded women,

00:52:53--> 00:52:55

a lot of them buried girls when they were born,

00:52:57--> 00:53:00

that prostitution as well and it was also everywhere else in the world.

00:53:01--> 00:53:15

Allah, Allah is telling them instead of resorting to this, I will give you in return many beautiful women in Paradise, they are called shirlene. Now when Arabella when he is this, what happens to him?

00:53:16--> 00:53:26

He desires it and stops from bad behavior mistreating a women in this life in exchange to get the most beautiful of women they can desire in the hereafter.

00:53:27--> 00:53:46

Similarly, if you desire a different color, you can get that different color. It's not restrictive, my dear brothers and sisters, nowhere in the Quran and Sunnah does it restrict to a certain type, but what it does say meaning whatever you desire of looks, it will be there and here is an example. In other words, here is an example.

00:53:47--> 00:54:05

When the verses came down in in Medina, the Madden and verses you'll find that the verses if you look it up, you find that the verses no longer address the spouses as Hudler in but rather they address them as spouses was a wedge no

00:54:06--> 00:54:10

or as wedge spouses paired up.

00:54:11--> 00:54:15

So, you find that the language changes a little bit as people change.

00:54:16--> 00:54:26

Therefore, I hope you learned this lesson inshallah. The points or the context of this is what you desire that which attracts you. Here is an example for the Bedouin Arabs.

00:54:27--> 00:54:37

We finish off inshallah we have five more minutes and inshallah Next week, we'll continue with this. But I'd like to finish off right now, to ask a question.

00:54:39--> 00:54:40

With all the beauty of Paradise,

00:54:42--> 00:54:59

who are the people of paradise? My question is not Who are the people in paradise? My question is right now in this life, who are the people who will go to Paradise in sha Allah, in accordance with our, with what Allah has told us what the messengers law says?

00:55:00--> 00:55:00

has informed us

00:55:02--> 00:55:11

about a paradise it's dirt is made of rubies and sapphires and its inhabitants were only the finest so Garmin sounds like a pretty exclusive neighborhood doesn't.

00:55:13--> 00:55:18

Who are these people who will be allowed to live in this enchanting place?

00:55:19--> 00:55:49

The Jews say, the Jews, the Christians say the Christians, but Allah says, and they say, layer the whole agenda in lemon Khanna who then own us all. None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian. Allah Samantha replies to that they'll get you home. Those are their vain desires. COVID head over Hannah come in quantum Saudi clean, say produce your proof. If you are truthful.

00:55:50--> 00:56:07

Allah also says namely, those whose lives the angels take in it in a state of purity, saying to them, peace be upon you, and to you the garden, because of the good which you did in this world. So those who die in a state of purity.

00:56:08--> 00:56:18

In the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala always mentions those who will attain paradise he mentions the believers, not the Muslims, the believers and what we know and not the Muslim moon.

00:56:19--> 00:56:59

Muslims may enter Hellfire, but will not enter Hellfire indeed, then what Kuhn will be amongst the gardens and water springs, those who guard themselves from the things which are less forbidden. He also says, verily, the Moto Khan will be in a place of security, among gardens and springs dressed in fine silk and also in thick silk facing each other. This is how it shall be, and we shall marry them to hoodies with wide, lovely eyes that will request them for every kind of fruit in peace and security. So again, we see the word cocoon. Allah says, they believe in Allah and the Last Day, and they enjoying what is right and forbid they're wrong, and they strive with one another in haste in

00:56:59--> 00:57:41

him to do good. And those are among the good. He subhana wa Taala also says of the believers, but the apostle and those who believe with him strive hard with their property and their persons. And these it is Who shall have the good things, and these it is Who shall be successful. A lot goes on by saying, Allah has purchased of the believers, their persons and their goods, for this in return is the garden of paradise. They fight in the cause, and they slay and are slain, a promised binding in him in truth through the law, the gospel and the Quran, and who is more faithful to His covenant than Allah, then rejoice in the bargain, which you have concluded that is the achievement Supreme.

00:57:41--> 00:57:51

Those who struggle and strife and the cause of a lost parent died with everything they have paradises for them my brothers and sisters and lastly, there was a man

00:57:52--> 00:57:55

his name was and I finished it with this inshallah.

00:57:57--> 00:58:01

Army Abner Imam, Al Ansari, there'll be a loved one.

00:58:02--> 00:58:07

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would often describe paradise to his companions.

00:58:08--> 00:58:39

And this was one of the cases as Anasazi Ilana rated when he's in the process and his companions proceeded towards better and arrived there before the disbelievers of Mecca. When the disbelievers arrived, the Messenger of Allah Subhana, Allah said, none of us should step forward ahead of me to do anything. Then the believers advanced towards us, and the disbelievers advanced towards us and the prophet SAW Selim said, rise to enter Paradise whose width is equal to the heavens and the earth on May

00:58:40--> 00:59:20

stood up and he said, O Messenger of Allah, is paradise equal in width to the heavens and the earth, and he's alive Selim said yes, all my then all my said, behind an Arabic word denoting excitement and astonishment. The prophet SAW sent him and asked, What made you say these words back in Bahia and he said, O Messenger of Allah, nothing but the desire to be amongst its residents. And he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, You are surely among its residents yummy. He then took some dates from his bag and began to eat them. Then he said, If I were to live until I had eaten all the dates, indeed, this life will be too long.

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

And as Dan said, he threw away the remaining dates he had with him. And he then fought in the ranks of the Muslims until he was martyred, narrated in Sahih Muslim, the martyrdom is injustice, of course, fighting injustice and protecting the innocent. This was their desire and insha Allah, this is our desire. I ask Allah Spanner what Allah to grant us what we desire for which is genuine and tinnitus in and for those that are earlier with the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam emini or bellami hair. There was a lot one and ebina Mohammed was early he was off a mountain with hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen

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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
