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

All praise is due to Allah and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon the seal of the prophets and messengers, our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the one who was sent as a mercy to all of mankind, the one who guided us to all that is beneficial for our worldly life. And for our here after my dear brothers, my dear Sisters in Islam who are listening, and hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen for the blessings that Allah subhanahu wa taala has smothered us with Allah subhanahu wata, Anna. He says, what US Bahal Yquem Yama who VA here are 10 Well, Tina, that Allah has smothered us with neon with blessings that are apparent that we can see and blessings that we enjoy

00:02:54--> 00:03:48

that we cannot even see. We're in taro dunya Mata Allah He led to saw her and if you were to count the blessings of Allah, you will not be able to count them. So when hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen for every blessing, and from amongst the blessings that we have been blessed with is the Quran. The Quran is the word of Allah subhanahu wa Tana that contains guidance that contains some 6236 verses that direct us that guide us towards that which will bring about success and happiness in this worldly life. The Quran for us Muslims is like the compass for a ship. Without a compass. The ship cannot get anywhere cannot navigate to its destination. The Quran is our compass, the Quran guides

00:03:48--> 00:04:41

to that which is upright which is good for us in Havel Khurana yeha de let he he here UK one this Quran guide to that which is most upright so when hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen. How much Quran should we be reciting the roller mat or one of the scholars he said, recite Quran in accordance with how much happiness you want in accordance with the happiness that you want recite Quran meaning the more Quran we recite the happier we will become because we are reading the words of Allah. When we want to talk to Allah we perform Salah we say he can I will do a year kind of Stein dinner syrup and Musa theme. When we want Allah azza wa jal to speak to us to talk to us. We read the Quran, and

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

there are many many virtues of the Quran. But one of the most beautiful things about Quran that we should also be focusing on is Tada Bora. Bora means reading the Quran with pondering with reflecting with really trying to understand the message of the Quran.

00:05:00--> 00:05:51

because when we start to really understand the Quran and the message of the Quran, it's like we're going to be living in a different planet from the beautiful message and the guidance that Allah subhanho wa Taala offers us. So Allah subhanahu wata, Allah says, Allah Allah Tada Barun Al Quran will they not ponder over the Quran? So yes and hamdulillah many of us may be reciting Quran, reading Quran, but what's equally important is to also be understood reading the Quran for the sake of picking up those gems for picking up those pearls. And that Subhanallah can really be a game changer, it can be life changing. And so from amongst the wisdoms of the Quran, when you ponder over

00:05:51--> 00:06:41

the Quran, you pick up messages that will just amazing. And in sha Allah Who Tiana I have today insha Allah picked up or deduce from the Quran? What are the four routes? What are the four routes, the four fundamentals that can lead a person into the hellfire? And what are the four routes that can lead a person into the agenda, looking at comparing two chapters from the Quran, each chapter talking about the very same four things, but in a different perspective. So in sha Allah hooter, Allah we begin with Surah 20 Mudassir in Surah 20 Mudassir, which is in the 29th part of the Quran,

00:06:42--> 00:07:42

Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of Jahannam he makes mention of Jahannam and in this Surah it is referred to as soccer, soccer, and Jahannam or the the Hellfire it has many names, and when something has many names, like Allah subhanho wa Taala has many names. This signifies the greatness, the seriousness. So in sorbitan muda theater, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says masala comfy soccer. What is it? What is it that puts you into soccer? What is it that landed you into Jahannam into soccer? Now we learn about the four traits that will land a person into Jahannam Well, yours will be let, let us listen to the response from the people of the Hellfire themselves, whereby Allah

00:07:42--> 00:07:50

subhanho wa taala. Next, he says I do they say they said our Lu lamb Naku mineral mousseline.

00:07:51--> 00:07:57

The first thing that came to their mind is that we were not of those that used to perform the salah.

00:07:59--> 00:08:02

We were not from those who performed the salah.

00:08:03--> 00:08:38

And unfortunately, this doesn't only apply to the non Muslims, because there are many Muslims, many Muslims, probably a majority of Muslims, who either don't pray or who are not praying on time. And this is the first question that we will be asked on the day of judgment about our salah. And the first thing, the last thing that fell from the lips of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were the words or salah or Salah Malakut a man who come

00:08:40--> 00:09:04

so here in the prophesy selling his soul is about to leave his body and he's saying a Salah salah, make sure you preserve, preserve, preserve the Salah, because you see the Salah is your link, the link between you between me as a human being on this earth and the creator is the salah. And so when those Salah is missing, the connection is missing.

00:09:05--> 00:09:16

So Subhanallah This is the first thing that we are going to be asked about on the day of judgment. And so they will say, We will not have those who used to perform the salah.

00:09:18--> 00:09:59

And so we wonder sometimes, why aren't things going our way in life? And Allah subhanahu wa taala says, Well, I saw the minimal Save button, Furby Mecca sabot ad comm where Yahoo and Kathy that wherever if misfortune befalls you, it's due to what your own hands have earned. And yet He pardons much and Allah subhanho wa Taala says mana mela Saudi Han mean Dhaka in our onset. We're who are most men on Fela no Hannah who hired on paper that whoever does good deeds male or female, and they are believers, we will grant them a goodly life. How can we act X

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

expect to have a good marriage, a good relationship with our children, a good relationship with our health, a good relationship with our parents and the people around us in our workforce, when we have stuffed up our crew, our relationship with the Creator.

00:10:18--> 00:10:31

And as one of the pious people of the past, or the many of the pious of the past, they said, repair your relationship with the Creator, and he will repair the relationship with the creation.

00:10:33--> 00:11:21

It's very simple. And so we need to have an eye must attitude when it comes to our Salah that we perform all of our Salah on time, if we want to be successful. So the first thing they say is Lemna criminal Musa lane, what else did they say that was number one. That's the first contributor to the hellfire. The second contributor one I'm not gonna climb on miskeen and know that we feed the poor. And in Islam, we have something called zakat. So in Surah, Tober, chapter nine, verse 60, Allah subhanho wa taala, he informs us to give us a cat, and the first recipient of this occurred are the Fukuhara other poor people. And secondly, it's the Misaki in the needy people.

00:11:22--> 00:12:09

So here are they saying that we never used to feed the poor. So we have to take our zakat seriously. We have to understand that if we have money that we've saved up, but we have a business, we have gold, we have silver, then we need to understand that with that, with that, that blessing from Allah comes responsibility that there are duties that we need to ensure that we are fulfilling that are the rights of the poor and needy people. So again, this is a pillar that many Muslims perhaps are compromising on or not taking very seriously when it is one of the Atacand of Islam to give zakat. And then the third one, they say, What Kwinana Hutu Malhar elite, and we used to enter intervene,

00:12:09--> 00:13:03

talk with those who engaged in this is the third attribute now, whereby people are engaging in false talk, be it labor, what is labor backbiting? What is backbiting? Well, it is to mention something about your brother or your sister in Islam, which they would hate to know that is being spoken about. That's LIBOR, even if it's true, that's LIBOR. And then we have something called num EMA which is slandering the person or both Dan, and we have Kenny Ben lives. And when we lie that leads in Milka Zeba Yeah, had the ill voodoo. That Kathy blinding leads to corruption. We're in alpha Jorah the Ilana that's what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that our corruption will

00:13:03--> 00:13:11

lead us to the Hellfire or because we started off by lying. And so we lie when we trade. So the believer is not one who lies.

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

So Subhanallah engaging in vain talk is what can lead to the hellfire. And that was number three. Number four. They say what couldn't be Yomi din, who Hakuna Naka zebu, be yo me, Dean. And we used to deny your routine, the Day of Judgment.

00:13:36--> 00:13:48

So the Day of Judgment is one of our candle. Amen. That we believe that there is a life after this life that you you don't only live once you actually live twice.

00:13:49--> 00:14:01

So you're on wood. Then when we look at our candle Eman, what should we believe in as Muslims al Eman who Billa Allah wa Mala Ekati his angels were called to be he he Scriptures

00:14:02--> 00:14:42

what was solely he and his and his prophets and messengers. Well yo mill ask him the day of judgment and Kedah and other basis of the Six Pillars of Amen. So we cannot say we don't believe in day of judgment or there is not going to take place that there is no such thing as Jahannam or the gender. So these are the four things that we learn from Surah Tila muda affair that can land a person into the hellfire. And then now we look at something else. So we spoke about the praise. We spoke about Zika or not giving sadaqa not giving to the port. We spoke about your speech what you were saying.

00:14:44--> 00:15:00

You know Subhanallah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one Hadith, he says may have man who lives whoever can guarantee what is between his jaws meaning his tongue and what is between his legs is private. I guarantee him Jana, because that's what's going on.

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

land a lot of people into the hellfire.

00:15:03--> 00:15:10

And so now we go to and then we spoke about the day of judgment and now we look at Surah 10 min on another Surah

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

Now in the Surah

00:15:14--> 00:15:55

In the very very beginning of this surah Allah subhanahu Attallah describes to us who what are the characteristics of the believers who will be successful and he mentioned a number of them and then after mentioning them he says hola Erica whom will very soon they are the ones who will inherit they are the ones who will inherit a Lavina URI soon I'll FIRA dosa whom fee her Holly dune those who inherit what did they inherit? They don't only inherit Jana they inherit Alpha dose which is the highest level of Jannah.

00:15:57--> 00:16:45

So what are their qualities? Or what are some of their qualities to counter the for other qualities or for other traits that will lead to the hellfire. So Allah subhanahu wata, Allah says, God if law helped me know this is how the surah begins. The F lehle movement known God is meaning when you hit God in the Quran, you you read, but it means for certainty, for sure, without a doubt, if Lucha and Africa here means successful, and this is the ultimate success. You can have billions of dollars in this life and we know a number of people in the world who have billions of dollars, but is that success? That's achievement, they've achieved a certain amount of money but are they really

00:16:45--> 00:16:58

successful? So Allah subhanho wa Taala informs us about who truly are the successful people, God Africa, who are they al Menon? So now this is number one.

00:16:59--> 00:17:15

To be entering Jana, you need to be a Mormon, as an part of a man is not to deny the Day of Judgment called the F L mod me known. That's the first quality and Eman My dear brothers, mighty sisters who are listening

00:17:16--> 00:17:42

increases and decreases it's like a muscle. If you want a strong muscle you need to work it out. You need to have the right nutrition you know your proteins, your whatever it is that you're taking to ensure that your muscles are strong and healthy. Well, Allah Eman we need to look at it like a muscle, but it increases with good deeds and it decreases with bad deeds and sin and transgressing the limits of Allah azza wa jal

00:17:43--> 00:18:13

so but Afla helped me know and if we want to maintain our Eman, if we want to maintain our identity as Muslims, then we need to understand that we can't just sit back and be passive, that there needs to be a Mujahidin. There needs to be a striving. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, Lavina Jaha Delphina Lana Hattie, I know whom sukoon Anna, but those who strive in our cause, we will guide them to our path.

00:18:14--> 00:18:58

So the first one is Iman if Mohammed Menon the second one, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Alladhina homefield Salah to him harsh your own. He mentioned Salah and not only salah, but to have her sure to be humbly submissive, that when we're in our Salah, we treat every single Salah as if it is the last Salah will ever pray on Earth. And once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did say, Solu salata, Maratea pray the prayer of one as if he is bidding farewell to the dunya to this world. So, at the heart of Salah is the horseshoe, and in accordance with your horseshoe, you will be rewarded.

00:18:59--> 00:19:34

That's what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed us. So the goal always that when we come to stand before Allah, that we want to maximise on the fruits on the outcome of that salah. And we're going to do everything possible whether it's our physical environment, our mental state, whatever it is to ensure that we are standing before Al Malik, we are standing before Allah azza wa jal Rob R Rahman r Rahim, Al Busey a Semia that we are standing before him subhanahu wa taala.

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

So who sure is very, very important in the Salah. So the first thing that is mentioned as being a successful believer, is that quality of having her sure in the Salah, and the second one, Allah subhanahu otile and mentions will levena Houma honey la Hui Marie dawn, and those who abstain and keep away

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

A from ill speech,

00:20:03--> 00:20:44

you want to enter Jannah then keep away from ill speech that is the quality of those people who inherit and fear those is that they are mindful of the words that they say that they are in control of the words that they say. Now maybe you say, Oh, look, that's just me. It's my personality. It's who I've always been. Well, if that's what you want to say, then perhaps that's, that's what you will always be. But if you say to yourself, I need to change and I'm prepared to get help and I'm prepared to work on it. Then insha Allah just like a muscle needs a workout, your tongue needs a workout more consciousness to inshallah engage in vicar, Allah azza wa jal, as opposed to ill

00:20:44--> 00:21:07

speech. So this was, this was the third one. And then Allah subhanaw taala says, What Lavina whom Lisa catify alone, and those who give there's a cat, and those who give there's a cat, the very opposite of the four people, the four types, the four traits that will lead into the hellfire.

00:21:09--> 00:22:03

So once again, let us take these four things very, very seriously as salah, and as zakat and watching our tongues and our belief and our Eman and our Arcada ensuring that it's preserved. So we don't die on in any other way. Except Allah Ilaha illa Allah because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said men can Hera kala me him in a dunya Illa Illa Allah the halal Jenna whoever's last words from the dunya Allah Allah illallah wa intergender May Allah subhanahu wata, Allah bless me and bless you to be able to say that Ilaha illa Allah as our last words departing from this dunya Amina Rabbil Alameen Akula Cody Harada was the thriller Halabi Emily Willa confessor Pharaoh inna

00:22:33--> 00:22:38

the state we are in in this day and age is dire.

00:22:39--> 00:22:43

There is much oppression that is taking place around us.

00:22:45--> 00:22:52

When we look at for example, the Muslims around the world when we look at for example, the Muslims in

00:22:54--> 00:23:15

China, the Jaguars we see what's going on there with millions of Muslims who have been imprisoned who are tortured. The Muslims who are not allowed to freely practice their religion. Arabic and Quran for example has been banned.

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

The bead Islamic dress criminalized you're a criminal if you have a bead or you dress in an Islamic way.

00:23:26--> 00:23:44

Ramadan outlawed you're not allowed to fast shacks are imprisoned and killed. forced abortion. Muslim girls are forced to marry Jani non Muslim men and millions of Muslims detained illegally detained

00:23:45--> 00:24:37

and Muslim families expelled communal violence against Muslim populations on a statewide So with regards to to them and to the others. Like for example, we have the Muslims in Kashmir. We have the Muslims in Syria, in Palestine, in Yemen. These are our brothers and sisters. This is just like my my biological brother and sister. So whenever we hear about these campaigns, to raise funds, or to make dua, or to put a post or to spread the word x the least that we can do for them. So please do not undermine any act of goodness. We don't know which act of goodness is accepted by Allah. We don't know which act of goodness is the one that's going to bring about a change. Never say somebody

00:24:37--> 00:25:00

else is doing it. That's fine. Why should I do it? Well, if everybody said that, nothing's going to get done. Each and every one of us should have a leader should have jealousy over our Muslim brothers and sisters around the world raising awareness, reaching out with our dua reaching out with our words reaching out with our pockets and giving sadaqa what's happened

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

Lebanon what's happening in many parts of the world? And so let us remain, let's not get desensitized because we see this constantly on our social media applications and platforms. Let's continue to do our part in sha Allah Who to Allah and be asking Allah subhanahu wa taala to better our situation and to better our condition and to give relief to our Muslim brothers and sisters wherever they may be in the world to guide us and to inspire us to all that will warrant massive success in dunya and massive success in the afterlife. mean you're up Bella lemon
