Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While he was so happy he urged my
brothers and sisters in Islam.
salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Once again, and welcome to this series, which we have called the end series.
What want to talk to you about today is answering the question.
Who are the people of paradise? We touched a little bit on it last week, and today we'll continue it Who are the people of paradise? Who are they? What are their qualities? And are there any of these people who have been named by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or indicated to by him in specific, that will be among the people of paradise? If so? Why was it them?
So Alhamdulillah, who has guided us to this wonderful religion, and we asked Allah, to place us in Jenin and to save us from hellfire. My brothers and sisters in Islam.
Every human being must have a goal.
And there is something called wishful thinking.
I believe he does not believe in something called wishful thinking. What I mean by that is, if you want to attain something,
then you set your goal and you make it realistic and you and you understand what its requirements are and then you work for it. wishful thinking is basically making up some unrealistic
wishes in our heads. And then we hope to reach them when there's no such thing. Or we want to reach something but we don't do anything about it except for wish for it. And then we assume just by wishing for something that we're going to get it This doesn't exist in Islam or Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no authentic hadith lays out a man with a manly
belief in Allah subhanaw taala. A true connection to Allah is not by mere wishful thinking. Just because you say, I believe in Paradise, for example, and I want to go there.
This person thinks that by saying that, that's all that it needs. This is very wrong. And this person is really in danger. They must be taught and as you know, rethink rationally, gender is not acquired through this wishful intentions. Rather, it has to be accompanied with action and hard work.
are also Salatu was Salam said,
Allah in Silla Otto La Jolla, LA, Silla tala, he and Jenna behold everyone, Allah. Allah in Arabic doesn't really have particular meaning but it's a form they used to use to capture the attention of people, when they're about to say something important. Allah. Behold, the product of Allah the merchandise which Allah has created to giveaway is very expensive. Behold, again resources and catches the attention of the people once more. And he says the merchandise the product of Allah which he has to give away his agenda. That is the ultimate reward, the ultimate product which Allah has installed for people who work for it. And then the prophet SAW Selim advised to work and strive
for it. Allah said in the Quran
in the interim, BK Kedah, Muna
you know, Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you shall strive in great effort
in this life, until you reach your Lord. It is as though Allah is telling us that this world the life here on it,
has been sealed hard work.
You cannot ever say to yourself, don't ever think that we can reach paradise without hard work without struggle. And we're not going to be tested in some way or another tested as in
we ourselves need to earn paradise and therefore we need to cross these obstacles
to earn it through our growth.
And the Lost Planet Allah says,
Did you think or assume or wish to enter paradise? And when the examples of those who came before you come to you in how they worked for it, you find yourself not ready to do the same or even come close. Ally mentions this question.
Allah gives us examples of people before and how they work for paradise and how they struggled towards it.
Rasul Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his feet cracked open, and they saved with purpose, praying to Allah subhanaw taala in the middle of the nights more than anyone can do. Just to say thank you Allah, for what you had given me, Allah had given him forgiveness for all any sins or mistakes, which he would ever do, although Sam doesn't sin.
So we have to work for john.
And the last panel of the IOM is Thai citizen or an
this ayah, which I'm about to, well, this is what it says to each is a goal to which Allah turns him then strive together, as in a race towards all that is good, and sort of the Bukhara, this area came down in relation to when the Qibla was changed.
However, what however, the other meaning of this verse, the general meaning of it is, every human every person has a goal they want to reach. And Allah has provided us with the goal that we need to reach. So Allah says, since everyone has a goal of their own, I am turning your goal towards me. And that's why the Qibla was changed. You want to follow the kryptos change from an oxide to Mecca, to the Kaaba, change. The essence of that change, one of the essence of that change is Will you follow? Will you follow the path of a Lost Planet dialer? Is that your goal? Everyone else has a goal, What's your goal, and here is something for you to test yourself with, to see which goal you're
going to follow. When you follow my kudla or the Qibla of someone else.
Sorry, Allah says race each other to that golden so now that you know your goal is gender is Allah, the meeting of Allah Spano at the island paradise.
Then strive Allah says and race each other.
Allah says in Surah monasticon after he describes gender after he describes what what we have in there, then he says, or if he then he carefully attend FSL matana fee soon. For this.
Those who want to compete should compete for this is the true competition you want to compete. This is the ultimate competition. compete for gentlemen.
compete for gender Allah is ordering us to do that. He is guiding us towards that.
What sir Beco was a bit boo Illa mama ferati Mira Beco ma Jin and race each other, to forgiveness from your Lord and to a paradise. Allah put forgiveness first and then paradise as though Allah is telling us
I know you will all sin, I know you will make mistakes. Don't despair. The first thing you have to do and be quick about it is seek Allah's forgiveness sincerely from your heart, and met, make amendments with a law, renew your connection with him all the time, till death, no matter how many times you sin, the idea is not that you're perfect. The idea is when you do sin, grow.
ask forgiveness from a lost man that learn from it, try not to do it again and grow in your character so that you may be of those paradise, as though the people of Paradise are of a particular characteristic. And that characteristic cannot be attained unless you actually learn from your mistakes in life and rise and become one of those. Then Allah says what gender and then paradise
so repentance. Dress drags us to paradise. Once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after speaking about the descriptions of Paradise, he concluded with the following statement.
Phil jannetty Mela, I know that. We said this last week in Paradise, there will be bounties which the AI has never seen. When it within an Semite, the ear has not ever heard while a hawk or Allah call Viva no human heart has ever perceived before a crow in schichten then he said read if you wish from the Holy Quran from Noble Quran fermat did enough some
karate I even just
known that a Jaffa Juno boom
BAM kung fu
which means they forsake their bids. calling upon the Lord in fear and in hope and spend out of what We have given them. So no soul knows what refreshment of the AI is hidden for them, a reward for what they did a reward for what they do.
Did just to explain this verse a little bit? The first part of it, they forsake their bids. Allah is referring here to first of all, it also speaks about paradise. Then he recites this verse. He wants to recite this verse in order to tell us that in this verse is the ingredient of how you can reach what no one has ever seen no heart No he has ever heard, and no heart has ever perceived. So he says,
They forsake their bids. In this I came down in relation to the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that they used to stay up a lot in the night praying to Allah subhanaw taala and so they didn't sleep much in the night that the Jaffa giovane in Maharajah literally means their sides barely hit
the beds, as though he is saying they hardly sleep. They're worshiping alone the night, they supplicate to him calling upon their Lord in fear.
Afraid of his hellfire. So they're calling upon their Lord, to save them from hellfire. What am I and in greed or in hope in greed? Literally, it's greed. You can also say hope, greed for paradise. So as the professor sometimes you want gender, work for it and supplicate to Allah in fear and in hope. supplicating you're afraid of pathogen of health I express these themes upon on what Allah and express to him subhana wa Taala that you are greedy for what he has prepared for you. And my Lord, I feel your Hellfire, I seek refuge in You from you.
And I beseech you in hope in you, and I want your paradise Give it to me.
And then he said, so no soul knows what refreshment of the eyes hit him for them a reward for what they did. Depending on how much we work, depending on how much we do. Allah hides away gifts and prisons and secret surprises in general. All as a result of our actions brothers and sisters in Islam. Imagine.
Obviously, it also says untold us every person has a place in heaven. And every person that's born also has a place in hellfire. And then you secure the one that you deserve by your actions in this life. Your actions earn a lot of generosity. As we said last week, they earn Allah's mercy. How action is not even worthy of Paradise, but they earn a lot of generosity and mercy. So it gives us out of his generosity. Do you want to build that paradise of yours, you've got gardens, you want to build in them houses you want to build in them trees, you want to build in them, all the beautiful of whatever Allah has created in them, you build it, how do you build it, not with money. So if you
buy a land in this life, a land, you get down to Greenville and there's some some lands over there. You know, next suburb over here for sale, you go down towards craigieburn. After that there's some land for sale, you buy that land, and then what you can either invest it and resell it, but in general, you can't resell it. In general, you don't want to sell it.
It is the ultimate goal. Now you want to fill that land with something on it, you want to fill it with, what do you want to fill it with? fill it up with whatever Allah has given you. And the way you fill it with your palaces and trees and so on and so forth, is with the actions that we do in this life for example. For example, Rasul Sam tells us that whoever prays the 12 hours of the day
12 sin is that we know erotica in the day will have a palace built for them in paradise.
In another Hadith, anyone who is in an argument, because of worldly reasons, or even because of religious reasons, but there is an argument about who's who's going to know more who's going to beat the other in the argument not for the sake of Allah. Whoever leaves the argument for the sake of Allah, he'll have a house built for them in the middle of paradise. What does it mean leaves it, meaning you know that this argument is going to lead to fight and Quarrel and swearing. Even though you're in the right, turn away and just leave it walk away.
You'll have a house built for you in the middle of gender. So there are many different actions that a person can do in his life. Read in a hadith and you will see and build your paradise, build your trees, plant your gardens, and you watch what you will have. So Allah says fermented enough some of fellow human karate iron, no one knows of what bounties that refresh the eyes are hidden for them. jezza and de mer can we imagine this what is hidden for them is the reward of what they used to do. So amount of actions, the types of actions you get rewards in return.
These are the people of paradise. This is not one description. Another description. Allah says
when Medina jahad rufina Lana Hadean homes
and those who strive in our cause will certainly be guide we will certainly guide them to our paths for
Indeed Allah is with those who do right?
In the law, Herman masini. So people strive for many things.
People strive for wealth, people strive to buy a company to become a CEO of a company, right to build a business and become millionaires. People strive to buy islands buildings have ownership of large countries and refineries or factories. People strive to buy a car of their dreams people strive to find the wife that they've always dreamed of, or the husband they've always wanted. People strive and strive
for glory for fame for status, people strive for different things. People strive for to show off. People strive to whatever they strive for, in MLM Albania, all actions are judged by your intentions. But then there are people who strive in their wealth. So they give up that wealth at other people's trifle. They strive in their bodies so people for people strive for for the selfishness, they give it up. People strive with whatever Allah has given them a property, which other people would have strived to get. They strive by giving it up in the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
yourself your buddy. So it goes through struggle, pain, blood, even sometimes if need be in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And what is the last one that I asked us to do in his path, it's all acts of righteousness. So Allah says, a reward for those who do right? Not those who do wrong. You shed your there are people who shed their blood, in the name
in the name of glory to have statues built monuments built out of them.
Ancient Romans they used to fight to have statues built for them, that was the goal in life. Others they fight and they get killed.
For you know, as we said to have glory or fame and so on and so forth people to live their name after them to be to have cities or countries named after them. This is what they will receive. There are people who will put their life at risk for money, even by doing illegal things both islamically and secularly. So drugs for example, they will put their life on the line.
They will people who imitate certain other thugs who want this particular glory and so their tattoo on themselves things like live by the gun and die by the gun they strive by the gun.
Those are striving the cause of a loss of Hannah what are the ones who deserve the greatest reward from Allah subhanaw taala.
My brothers and sisters in Islam paradise therefore demands hard work. It is for the hard working people who work for it. The harder you work, the higher you will rise and our prophesies seldom told us when you ask the last salute salute Alfredo's asked me for alpha dose the highest place in general don't just settle for the lowest Some people say to be an underdog in Paradise is all I want to to just barely make it to paradise if I have to drag myself on crawled to get to paradise that's good enough for me No, that's not good enough for you. You've placed yourself on the edge of things. A person who placed themselves on the edge of things are more likely to fall into the harem and fall
into Johanna make your aim very high. Because you either reach it or somewhere close to it inshallah.
And Hadith the prophet SAW Selim which is in Buhari that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said
how fertile agenda will Mecca was offered in Nairobi shallot.
Hellfire has been veiled with desires and paradise has been veiled surrounded by hardships. I'll repeat that
paradise has been surrounded by hardships and Hellfire has been surrounded by desires
which everyone you can cross your reach whatever is behind it. So if you can penetrate through the desires you reach Hellfire, and if you can penetrate through the wall of hardships you region, which one do you want,
there are difficulties around health paradise. But these difficulties are easy upon the believer who loves Allah subhanaw taala and strives for who loves Allah wants to meet him.
Types of these difficulties are hardships in life sufferings that you'll be tested with. And secondly, there are things which are last Mandela ordered us to do such as the five daily prayers fasting charity, gift from from oneself, sacrifice in order for good, these things, the snaps the self, every human being naturally finds discomfort in doing giving away your money.
You know working hard when you can just rest praying five times a day waking up for fudger fasting abstaining from food and drink from sunrise to sunset. These are things which the neffs naturally dislikes.
Ongoing actions of this and your naps you're at constant wrestling with it. You're wrestling your naps.
And the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim used to make poetry about their naps. Yeah And if so, do we have enough talking to this desire inside of them that was always urging them to the wrong to selfishness? Yeah enough so to be Oh knifes repent. Oh enough's repent onus What are you doing to yourself needs to talk to themselves with their good conscience. Enough don't steal enough done magaziner enough don't go to the Haram for you cannot bear the fire
and so on and so forth. So paradise has been covered with the hardships if you are able to pass these hardships and do them to the best of your ability then you will be rewarded with gender but those who follow their desires and obey them further the time comes and your enough tells you what are you getting up for men give your body a rest sleep the pillow is nice so they sleep obey the enough's.
What's this five daily prayers I'm a good person, I don't need to pray five daily prayers. So the knifes tells them just do something else.
The knifes keeps telling you and telling Allah Subhana Allah tells you in the Quran, about the wife of Allah Z's in the time of use of Allah is lm women auberry ofc. She says my enough's is not innocent enough. Salah American bisou illa Rahim. She said the knifes is surely something your desires always tell you to do wrong things except to him Allah has saved from that. So this nuts is what will call you to help fire obeying his desires, being selfish, being self centered.
You're at a wrestling match.
And we can choose this world by banging our desires and this will become your paradise and it will end or you choose the hereafter which is an eternal paradise. Ally's generous, which one do you want? It's your choice.
So Paradise is very high, the greatest blessing of Allah. It requires much exertion, the way to Paradise is filled with things to go against human wishes and inclinations. This needs strong determination and willpower.
And one of the best ways of entering gender is for the steadfast. And Mr. klieman.
Allah teaches us to recite Al Fatiha in every prayer. And what do we say in it? He did not sit alternative Mr. theme, Oh Allah guide us to the steadfast path, the path that is all the way
Allah smart Allah says in the Quran, in the man who Mr. camo, tetanus
he can do
wanted, Mata Koon those who believe in Allah, and then after they believed
they are steadfast, they continue all the way on what they believed in the angels descend upon them and they say to them, Do not fear and you will have no sadnesses on the Day of Judgment, and be have glad tidings that you will receive paradise. So these are another people of paradise.
And it's the karma. Consistency on the straight path is the ultimate challenge of reaching the highest places of Paradise, not just for a year or two, and then you give up and go backwards, but until your death.
And I would like to repeat a reminder.
There was a few examples of this.
Men who I think was a meme of Shangri La La who used to say, I think it was him if I'm not wrong. He said, I asked Allah for his mercy on his deathbed.
40 years of my life 40 years of my life.
I did not miss out on a single pray in JAMA behind the Imam in the masjid
except that I was there before the Imam said Allahu Akbar in the first Raka I was there for 40 years. He says and 20 of those years I was in the masjid before the more other than said Allahu Akbar
is the karma is a people that you know we put up there as our goal to reach
you try these the highest ones can reach somewhere halfway there inshallah that's good.
Another man at the time, the companions Allah, Allah or send them. He used to pray every salad in JAMA in the masjid and one day a visitor came to him.
I was at one of the tabs, I mean, visit a canteen for a shirt and he passed a shirt they prayed at home. He said that night I saw in my dreams, that the people have that pray with me in the masjid. They were on horses and they were galloping along way in front of me. And I tried to catch up with a fast horse, but each time I came really close, they'd beat me again and I managed to reach one of them in the end road. And I said to him, Why can I reach you and he said, You will not be able to tonight
I said why? said because you couldn't because you did not reach us in jemelle. Tonight. So obviously that night they had taken a footstep ahead or a few gallops ahead. So we are in a race, we always have to return and have this consistency inshallah as much as we can. And I recall Imam Ahmed Mohammed on his deathbed, when he would say lab lab are not yet Not yet.
It wasn't saying I don't want to die. I don't want to die it when he became conscious, he said to his son, Not yet Not yet. The shaitan came to me saying, you have escaped me. Yeah.
You know, I couldn't beat you. And he's trying to trick me. So I can let my guards down and say, Yes, I've won. But he wanted to trick me when I let my guard down. So I said to him, the fight between you and me is not over yet. I'm still waiting until my soul gets out of my body. The fight between you and me will be over. So consistency all the way
and how many people will enter paradise? That's a good question how many people will enter?
The answer is, it's going to shock you but then I'll give you the other side of it. out of every 1000 people, only one will entered paradise.
out of every 1000 people only one will enter Paradise.
In Sahih al Bukhari it is narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
the first man to be cold on the Day of Resurrection will be Adam alayhis salaam
who will be shown his offspring and it will be set to him.
And it will be set to the to the people who are the Wacom Adam, this is your father, Adam.
And Adam will say responding to the call. Lab Baker Masada aka Robbie, Here I come, my Lord, whatever you will, I am here. Then a last minute that Allah will say to Adam alayhis salam, take out of your offspring out of your children, the people of Hellfire
and then add them and then add the money. Some will say, Oh Lord, how many Should I take out? And the last $1 will say, Take out 99 out of every 199 out of every 100.
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they said to the Prophet sallallahu, send them a messenger of Allah. If 99 out of every 100
of us are taken away, what will remain out of us?
My followers in comparison to the other nations, a like a white hair on a black box.
So this one out of 100 actually will enter Paradise. And they said you're a solo. How many of us will be left? He said my followers in comparison to other nations are like a white hair on a black ox.
What is this telling us? It's a good it's glad tidings Actually, I also saw Sam's talking about the aroma of the process and us in sha Allah, the nation of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And these followers of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be so small in amount on that day, that the majority of the people of the world from the beginning of add them to the end of time
from the beginning of Adam Ali's son until the end of time
the majority of them have disbelieved. Allah says in the Quran, we're in total ACTA Rahman fill out the new survey in if you were to follow the majority of the people on earth, they will lead you astray.
Allah usually praises in the Quran, Allah Kowloon. The small amounts, usually small amounts follow on last but not died. And you'll find this in many of the nations of the prophets you find this in the people of North Valley center. They say in the Hadith that only 80 people followed
nor highly his cinema and the majority didn't believe and a lot of constantly says about most of the profits when m and o ma ma ma ma ma in locally and no one believed in except very small amounts, small amounts small amount.
So this large amount that will enter healthcare and the amount of the province are selling makes up like the white hair on a black ox, the arm of the process and
so having said this, who will enter Paradise first is my question. The first one to reach paradise, and to open its gates will be the Messenger of Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
In Sahih Muslim it is collected that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said or that he will come to the gates of Paradise and asked for it to be opened. And the gatekeeper will ask men and who are you
The prophet SAW Selim will say, no Mohammed, I am Mohammed Salah liason. The gatekeeper will say, I was ordered not to open the gate for anyone else before you are permitted to Allah if the hell Bab Leah had in public, the oma of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam will enter before others.
We ask Allah to make us one of them. Then the prophet SAW Selim said, We are the last of the nations in this world. But we will be the first on the Day of Resurrection. To enter Paradise.
We will be the first of mankind to enter Paradise. This is narrated in Bahati, the first man to enter Paradise after the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, his abubaker are the alarm on the first woman to enter Paradise will be Fatima, as are the Aloha on the daughter of the prophet SAW Selim. According to the authentic caddies, the first youth to enter Paradise, the first youths who will enter Paradise and they died as youths will be the grand sons of the prophets, I send them a lesson. And they'll say under the law, one woman, and the first martyr to enter Paradise will be Hamza, or the Alon.
In general, brothers and sisters, in general, the poor people will enter Paradise 40 years ahead of the rich people.
What does that mean?
This is in Sahih Muslim, and 40 years here is not the same as our 40 years here, it's different.
The poor will enter before the rich, the prophet SAW Selim said, the poor of the mohajir. In the migrants at the time, the prophet SAW Selim will enter Paradise 500 years ahead of the rich of the mohabbatein.
Because he said, the poor will not have to give the accountability of their property.
On the day of judgment, we're going to be accountable for what you have right? So mellitus nyama, in any name, you will be asked about your property. Did you earn it from halon? Did you get from it Zakat Did you give from what it earned? Did you provide for your family? Did you look after it as a law looked after? Did you steal? did you how did you acquire it and how did you spend it all has to be accountable for
and the poor entering paradise before you it doesn't mean that that will reach higher places than the rich. The Hadith will low alum does not indicate that what is indicating is that a poor person won't have much to account for what property did he or she have. So they'll be entering and this is also a virtue for the poor, the poor person when they say, you know, in this life, Allah is teaching us if you're poor, and you haven't got provision as much as the rich people then be saddened, everyone will have something in return. So if you are poor, and you didn't get to enjoy life as much as the rich, then don't worry, you'll enter Paradise before then buy a long time because you don't
have much to be accounted for. As for the rich people, they may enter higher places. Yes, but they have a long way to go before they have to account for every piece of their wealth. Did they donate from it properly? Did they earn it properly? Did they spend it properly?
And here is one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam which I'm about to mention as one of the 10 who promised paradise His name is Abdul Rahman ignore elf for the Aloha on
this man was among the richest of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And as I said he was one of the 10 who promised Paradise by the prophet SAW Selim specifically
one day after the death of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. One day I should have Ilana reported that one day he came into the Medina and he had
about 100 camels worth of merchandise. And everybody gathers he said, I saw everybody gathering. That's a large amount of wealth in those days large amount of wealth, everybody's gathering to buy into trade and
and then she reported she said, I heard the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say that men have now for the long run, will enter Paradise. However, he will enter a hub one have one meaning crawling.
When a news rechab romantic now for the alumni I know she said because of his wealth, he will have to account for it and then you'll have to answer for it and something has happened and because of his wealth, he will have to enter it somehow crawling with a loss justice is what he will desert. So then he said, Yeah, I make you bear witness that I have donated all of these v sebelah. I donate them all in the cause of a Lost Planet died just so that I will not enter Paradise crawling
and sub ramen have no health and entering paradise not crawling.
This does not mean you will not enter Paradise. This does not mean that it will be tortured, but it will delay him for some reason. Only Allah Subhana Allah knows us and he's justified and it's not telling us not to be rich. Allah says in the Quran, Coleman huruma Xena tala Hilary Baddiel.
Who ever said that Allah has forbidden richness and luxuries for his believing servants Allah did not forbid this for us. However, something about the wealth of about a man of no later on will cause him to enter crawling.
Allah knows best how the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim, wealth was not a big deal to them. So, they lived on what they had wealth meant donating melt, wealth meant helping others wealth meant like that, they did not get jealous of wealth, they did not. And maybe for some people, wealth will deter you from earning greater rewards, maybe I bet I might have no else wealth, because of the amount of it he had, it had to busy him so much that he would have done so many other good deeds in that time. But that time was taken up because he had so much business to take care of. So Muslim should try their best to plan their life around their worship, not their earnings around their life
as much as they can. And if they have business, then they should turn their business into some type of worship. If you have a business you can turn into some form of dollar. If you have a business and you earn some wealth from it, try to maintain a lot you know, an amount from a PCB dealer.
Try to make it Hello try to earn it in Halo try to donate it in highlighter. So try to turn anything you have into what Allah subhanaw taala loves you to do with it. And this is our roadmap. Now he is doing some things with with his wealth, he's benefiting others for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said also said our showing the first three people to enter Paradise. And he said the first three will be the Shaheed the martyr.
He said, then the one who is chased and proud, our fee for modaf if
you are chased, meaning you prevent your sexual desires from how long and
you are also proud in the sense not in a negative way. Meaning you don't go and ask people for things rather you are a person who gives, and you may be in need, but you leave it as the last resort. Allah says grant layers alone and NASA will have there's another virtue. They're not the types of people like there could be people of Paradise, but not the ones of example, who will enter First, the ones who will enter first are not those who go around asking others for things, but rather they are the ones who give others things, even at the times of their need. They try their best to avoid they try their best not to complain. In other words, you know, I haven't got money to
spend, I can't this icon that tons of donations come they complain about how you know they're not doing so well. Even if a person's not doing so well. They should not complain about that to people, they should complain it to our last panel data and try their best. If you do say you'll be in higher ranks in Paradise will be among the first to enter our fee for mataf you're probably in need, but you don't make it prevalent in front of people.
So you look like you're not in need, but you may be in need. And these are the best types of people actually.
And he said and the third one is the slave who worships Allah slave of Allah, the slave or the servant who worships our last pantalla with devotion and He's faithful and sincere towards his master Allah subhanho wa Taala so sincerity, devotion faithful when you wish not just to show it off, not just mechanical, whatever. You mean it you come and you pray because you want a law you want to see your work and you pray to the best of your ability as much as you can.
Now my brothers and sisters in Islam, there are certain types of people who will enter Paradise they are called or they are the 70,000 in number Rasul Allah, Allah says this hadith came in Muslim
and Buhari and by Ahmed, so he had Gemma studied and so on.
That the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once came out to us the companion of an OB. So Donna says the prophet SAW Selim came out to us and said, some nations were displayed before me.
Allah showed some nations display before the prophet SAW Selim. And then he said, a Prophet would pass in front of me with one man meaning on the Day of Judgment, I saw profits coming past and only one man has followed them
in profits called to Allah and from there people, only one man would have believed in him.
In other words, beat brothers and sisters don't despair in your Tao, if you call people he tried to invite to Islam, and you find that the majority of not listening at least one person, then don't feel bad because even the profit some profits will even have affected only one man.
Imagine the eloquence in the best way of speech.
It's the People's Choice, and another prophet with only two men and another with a group of people and another with nobody even with him. Some profits wouldn't even have been able to influence even one.
Then I saw a great crowd, covering the
Horizon, and I wished that they were my followers, the province of La Selim said.
But it was said to me, this is Moses alayhis salam Moosa and his followers.
So Moses, Sam had a great people, children of Israel who followed him, will enter Paradise with him. Then it was said to me Look, and I looked and saw a big gathering with a large number of people covering the horizon, with a large number of people covering the horizon even bigger than the other one. Then it was said to me, these are your followers. And among them, there are 70,000, who will enter Paradise without being asked about their accounts.
Then the people dispersed and the prophet SAW Selim did not tell who these 70,000 people were. So the companions of the Prophet SAW, Selim started talking about it, and some started to guess who they were, then the processor then called them back and he said, these 70,000 people, other people who do not draw an evil Omen, from birds, and they don't draw, they don't believe in superstitions, and do not get treated by branding. This is a type of medicine they used to use which involved
also superstitious beliefs.
truly put that trust only in the Lord
altkoina Okay, this is not a proper medicine.
They used to put their trust in things that they weren't sure of, and just say, I'll just believe in it, I'll just put my blind faith in it. So basically putting blind faith into things other than Allah, then Okasha, or the Allah Han, who got up and he said, O Messenger of Allah, am I one of those 70,000. And the problems I sent him said, yes, then another person got up and he said, am I one of them? rasulillah the process and him said, subak, ha, ha Okasha, okay, I should beat you to it. In here, we find that there is something of true trust in the last panel who died. People who complain their worries and complaints to other people may not be under this 70,000 they'll may enter
Paradise, they may be among higher places, but they're not among the 70,000. Those who resort to medicine, yes, but their trust is solely to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they use the medicine which Allah spent Allah has created, and we know that it can benefit Yes, but the people who complain their sicknesses, their worries, their lack of whatever in life, their poverty, they're there, they're there to people may not be under those 70,000 Allah knows best. So full trust in Allah subhanaw taala complain only to Allah and seek your medicine and your help in the proper means. But without trying to complain to other people that as the last resort,
and do not believe obviously in superstitious acts. They used to fly birds if they want, everyone wants to go on a journey that put a bird and if you flew to the right, for example, they'd say this is a good omen. So we should go. If you flew to the left ago, this is a bad habit, we should not go. This is superstitious beliefs. Today we have many of these superstitious beliefs. So you know the magazine star signs, turret readings, and so on and so forth.
And Muslim doesn't put their trust in omens. So 70,000 without accountability will be there. Now, my brothers and sisters in Islam
among those who promised paradise collectively and not in naming specific as a whole, they are described in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah says, among the first he said,
and the first to embrace Islam of the mohair genome and the answer, and also those who followed them exactly in faith, Allah is well pleased with them, as they are well pleased with him, but either your loved one who modeled wind, he has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell there in forever. That is the supreme success sort of the Toba, the mohajir rune and the answer the Mahajan, the ones who first migrated with the processor. And the answer they are the ones who met the prophet SAW Selim in Medina. And then those who followed them afterwards even till today in perfect faith, use them as an example tried to be like them perfect faith, they are also
collectively included in the promise of Paradise by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And there are several other descriptions in the Quran. We mentioned last week about those who are collectively described as the people of Paradise, we can be any one of them in sha Allah. But now I would like to give you an example
of what they call the 10 promise paradise. But before I say it, when we say 10 it's not really only the 10
they use this heading and also some did not say the 10 promised paradise, but it was a heading used afterwards, because the promises are selling mentioned these 10 in one statement, but the process and I'm also in other occasions mentioned other companions as well added them on top. So don't take the heading as a specific definition of only those 10. You will find other candidates in other places
is the process of mentioning others as people of Paradise including females, women who are not mentioned in this particular Hadith, but I'll start with this hadith and prophecy. And then I'll tell you the other occasions of process and I mentioned others
because you know there are many how these groups are seldom would mention something collectively in one go then another time mentioned something else, and you think Hold on, but I heard this here. Why is this added? There is no contradiction. It's just that also so as I mentioned him in different occasions, but we put them under headings, and we think this is it. So it's not only the 10 but they were these 10 were mentioned in one go narrated by sidedness aid.
This Hadith is good and it's according to Albania, Allahu Allah. And so in general, so here, narrated by sided mosaic. And there are similar Hadith like this inside Muslim By the way, that man Edna lessness said that when he was in the masjid, and men abused the alley or the Allah one.
This was after the death of prophets Allah sent him some men got up and he abused
Ali or the Allah one
sided mosaic got up and he said, I bear witness to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I heard him say
10 persons will go to Paradise in this particular occasion. And then he countered Ababa krin filion Abubakar will be will go to Paradise, Omar Finnegan Omar will go to Paradise. Awesome man. Finnegan of metal delana will go to Paradise. Eileen, Phil agenda, La Romana will go to Paris palha Finjan Taha will go to Paradise, Zubaydah, Milan, Phil Jenna, he will also be in paradise sad of NaVi walk cos Finnegan or saddam Finnegan. He's also impaired as well. I have no health Finjan, he's also in paradise. I will obey the law, Finjan. And then side. EDNOS aid, he stopped right there at the ninth. And if he said if I wish I can mention the 10th. But he was he resolved. Why? Then the people
asked Who is he your site? So he kept silent? He was thinking should I say it? And you'll know why? They again asked and he insisted. Who is he? And then finally he replied, he said it himself. He then said the company of one men whose face has been covered with dust by the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam is better than the actions of one of you for a whole lifetime, even if he is granted the lifespan of Allah His center.
And anyone who was with the messenger Silla Selim, fighting with him on the battlefields, and the dust of the horse's legs and the feet of the soldiers, and the swords were to hit the faces of the people who were accompanying the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our actions even if we live the life of normally his synonym of good actors will not equal they will not equal that stance with him. sallallahu alayhi wasallam why not because they happen to be there. It is because of what made them strive towards something inside their heart, which made the man even stronger than us.
Not all the companions had this. But these 10 all of them, all of them had this privilege included in the first battle called the Battle of buttons. And the process of selling is to say, Oh, the people have better, those affording butter, a manual machine to do whatever you please after today, for no sin will harm you
know, sin will ever harm you after this day. Obviously they didn't do that. Instead, Allah says that their Eman increased
what Gillette Cola, boom,
that home, amen. Their hearts begin to tremble. And the man began to increase it only increase them and when you see a bad person, when you give them something like that, say, Do whatever you wish. Now, no sin will ever harm you. They'll go and do as many things as they can. But a person who alone knows is very special and virtuous. If you say to them, do as many students as you like, what will they do? They say oh my God, what a gift from a last minute died and now we love him even more. And we're going to do even extra work what we've already done before and does this we're going to even do double now to earn us even more. If this is what we got for that action. Imagine what we can get
for 10 times that action. And so they did so many of them died pizza vanilla
can compare the people of Paradise and the others.
In another narration are also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
that are not mentioned in this particular Hadith, such as as we mentioned before, Okasha, Okasha will enter Paradise without accountability among the 70,000 seas mentioned him
in other Hadith
I also saw Salah mentions about a man whom we don't know his name, who said to his companions, a man will enter, and he is among the people of paradise. He entered and he was water dripping from his arms from mobile. And I think was our beloved. No, I bet he said I wanted to follow him to see what actions he does so that I can be like him. The story is long, but he went and stayed at his house for three nights. On the third night he asked him what is special about you? And the men thought and finally he said, I think it's this. Every time I go to sleep, I do not leave a garage in my heart to any Muslim brother or sister on the face of the earth. I resolve it in my heart, I forgive them. He
said, this is probably what you bid us with. So this is another man. Now here's something very interesting. But also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions certain qualities of these among the 10 are among the 12 or the 15. Or how many however many they have their qualities. For example, sadra the alarm on among those whom he promised paradise? What what what why was this promise then? Let's look at one event. In the Battle of offered. solder the Allahu anhu was specially chosen as one of the best archers together with date.
And others and sod was one of those who fought vigorously in defense of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam after some Muslims had deserted their positions in the Battle of Ohio, and to urge him on the prophet SAW Selim said to him, there'll be a sad feedback.
Shoot, oh, sad May my mother and father
may I may I be ransomed
for you before my mother and father.
Low Level the Allahu anhu says
that the prophecy he had never heard the promises send them promising such a ransom to anyone except for sad. Sad is also known as the first companion to have shot an arrow in the defense of Islam.
Aveda Ninja, also another one, he was nicknamed the trustworthy man of this oma
is extremely loyal to this Deen never failed in any way. Omar will hop out of the lohana How many can we say about him? Remember that when we said last week that he had a contract with this man of renting or hiring his horse? Remember that one was riding on his horse. And he had and he was the halifa at that time.
And then he forgot his blanket or a piece of material of his clothing back. So he climbed off his horse walked back and got his clothing. Then the man who was with him, he said, Yeah, I mean, I've got two questions for you. So what are your questions is number one, why did you go walking on your feet to grab your cloak when you could have gone back on your horse and got it? First question. And question number two, why couldn't you ask me to just go get for you, I would have gladly done so the answer is of Omaha top down. He said. First of all, the contract between me and the Hira did not include that I use the horse to go back to grab my piece of clothing if I forgot it. So I'm sticking
to the contract is honest, absolutely honest. And number two, he said and you are not my servant. Just because I am emitted momineen doesn't mean I need to abuse my responsibility. That now I get people working for my personal affairs. He said you are not the servant of my personal affairs. For this, it's my personal so he was trustworthy to his leadership. Or who do you want to talk about Rebecca de la Han. Once the prophet SAW Selim stood up in front of the people in the masjid of Medina and he said, Who of you today
has woken up? Who have you today?
has started the day fasting. I will walk it alone and put his hand up.
Then he asked another question, Who of you today have donated to Sevilla avocado and put his hand up and a few others but oh backer again.
Who of you today has attended a janessa Abubakar of the Aloha and a few other people but not the same ones but I worked on with the same person who have you today.
Who have you today he said
so we said fasted donated
given in charity. So donated, fasted,
attended a janazah. And there was one more now visited the sick person for the sake of Allah today. He said IRS will Allah
and he said, No person who these four meet together with him on one in one day. This is on top of all the other good actions except that he will be in paradise. Or he will be asked to enter from any door that he wishes from Paradise. And then he said to overcrowd the Aloha, nowhere did you enter
main home and I think that you abubaker are one of those who will enter on the day of gender through any door you wish.
Among the ones who were promised paradise for perfect women. I want to reserve
The story of these four perfect women till next week and Shalom, because I want to talk about them a little bit.
There's so much to talk about the women of Paradise as much as there is to talk about the men of paradise. But I ended up with only one story of one of these women.
She was actually called and brace yourselves. She was actually called, not by name, not by lineage. No, no, actually, no one knows her name. And no one knows her her lineage. And she was called the black woman.
Now, be careful. This word black woman is not a racial thing, nor is a nationalistic thing. It's actually the opposite in a time where they saw black people inferior to everyone else. The Hadith comes in and even our best so the alumnos calls her the black woman saying, You people who see black people inferior. Look at what Islam has promised to this particular woman whom you call black, like that. So say in a sarcastic way against those who defame and degrade people of colors. So narrated by apart I've know a bit about an Abbess of the Aloha know who said to me, Shall I show you a woman of the people of paradise?
I said, Yes. He said, this black woman came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and said, I get attacks of epilepsy and my body becomes uncovered. please Invoke Allah for me to cure me. Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to her, if you wish, only if you want, be patient and you will have paradise to enter. And if you wish, I will invoke Allah to cure you. Then she thought about it and said, I will remain patient or Rasul Allah and she added, but I become uncovered. So please Invoke a law for me that I may not become uncovered. So the prophet SAW Selim invoked Allah for her to not become uncovered this hadith is in Al Bukhari, and here are my notes have been our best. So the Alon, as we
said, did not mean to point at the race as we said, or to belittle her in any way. Indeed, he but meant to teach the people around him a great principle of Islam, which is mentioned in the verse in the meaning of our people. We have created you from a single pair of male and female mentors into nations and tribes. The most honored among you in a law's eyes are the ones who are most pious. Secondly, the fact that the prophets I send them said, if you wish, be patient and you will have paradise to enter is a proof of the virtue and reward of patience during sickness.
In another Hadith, the prophet SAW Selim says whenever a hardship affects the Muslim, he will be forgiven for it, even when he is pricked, or picked by a spike inside Muslim, and another Hadith by Muslim that own a slave, cursed fever. she cursed fever, to which the prompts are seldom told her do not curse fever, for it takes away the things like the blaze of the fire that takes away the impurities of iron. The black woman preferred the suffering of this world to getting the eternal reward of paradise. She suffered from sickness, yet her pain and discomfort did not force her to forego pleasing Allah Subhanallah died and no matter who won his brothers and sisters, if one is in
the path of a lost pan dialer, you will encounter difficulties
you will encounter difficulties
This is one of the pathways to paradise.
