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

and bad.

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

Imagine you were given an offer to build a house

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

to build a house, in a very beautiful place, a very scenic place,

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

next to a river,

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

or rather rivers that wind through mountains and trees and forests.

00:00:28--> 00:00:34

How long would it take you to build such a house? Rather a mansion, a palace?

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

How much money would you need? How much time would you need? And how much effort? Would you need to build for yourself?

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

That dream home?

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

And then let's say after building it, you move into it. The question is, how long will you live in that house for?

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

How long will you remain there for

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

even if you were to live there for a long time,

00:01:12--> 00:01:16

eventually you're going to die, and someone else is going to come and live in it.

00:01:18--> 00:01:28

And this house after years, or years after you have gone, it would need renovation.

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

This house because it is built

00:01:33--> 00:01:37

of worldly material, it's going to deteriorate.

00:01:38--> 00:01:42

It's going to need repairs and renovations.

00:01:43--> 00:01:49

On top of that, it is prone to natural disasters to earthquakes

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

and other such disasters.

00:01:54--> 00:01:58

And so my dear brothers and sisters, what if I was to tell you

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

that you could build for your Excel for house

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

but not one that is made

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

of rocks and bricks

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

in a very beautiful place.

00:02:24--> 00:02:25

Next to rivers,

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

among trees

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


00:02:32--> 00:02:37

built not of rocks and stone but rather built of gold and silver.

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

It's grote

00:02:42--> 00:02:46

made a perfume, its ground

00:02:47--> 00:02:48

and its pebbles

00:02:50--> 00:02:53

made of pearls and rubies.

00:02:55--> 00:03:01

This is the house but rather the palace that you could build for yourself in Jannah

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

a palace and a house

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

that will last forever

00:03:10--> 00:03:14

with its residence being yourself to live in there forever.

00:03:16--> 00:03:18

The question is how can you build for yourself?

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

That house in Jannah

00:03:23--> 00:03:29

Allah subhanahu wa to Allah and his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have told us

00:03:31--> 00:03:35

of several different ways that we can build for ourselves,

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

our homes in Janna

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

ways that don't require much effort

00:03:44--> 00:03:48

in some cases that don't require much time or planning,

00:03:49--> 00:03:53

but rather it may not even cost a single dollar.

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

So let us look at some of these ways.

00:03:59--> 00:04:29

The first is the most obvious and it is the very condition to enter gender in the first place. And that is having Eman and Taqwa the fear of Allah subhanahu ATOD Allah subhanho wa Taala says Nikki min lady in a Taco Bell home Lahoma huruf min fellow Ki Ha huruf Mabini yeah TGD mentality. Now, what are the WHA? Now you leave for work on me.

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

For those

00:04:35--> 00:04:50

for those of Taqwa for those who feared ALLAH SubhanA who had to hide for them, or chambers, houses, mansions, one on top of the other built high

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

under an under which rivers flow, this is the Promise of Allah. And Allah never breaks His promise.

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

The second

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

the second is patience.

00:05:08--> 00:05:13

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Hola, Iike uj Zona

00:05:14--> 00:05:22

Iike uj zonal hora pethub emails Roberto. When you look cold if he had to heat your tongue was Alana.

00:05:23--> 00:05:30

They the people of Jenna, they will have mansions elevated mansions

00:05:31--> 00:05:37

because of what BML saw baru because they were patient in this dunya

00:05:38--> 00:05:39

they are patient.

00:05:41--> 00:05:46

And as our scholars say patience is required for the Muslim over three things

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

over the commandments of Allah. Allah has commanded us to do certain things. We have to be patient

00:05:55--> 00:06:07

in doing those things. The second is patience in refraining from sins. Allah has forbidden certain things we need to be patient

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

in restraining ourselves from falling into those prohibitions, and the third is patience over the painful calamities, that Allah decrees for us, painful moments in our time in our lives.

00:06:28--> 00:06:31

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:06:32--> 00:06:38

giving an example of this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Whenever

00:06:41--> 00:06:44

a servants child dies, the servant of Allah,

00:06:45--> 00:06:46


00:06:48--> 00:06:50

one of our children passes away,

00:06:52--> 00:06:55

Allah subhanahu wa Tada us the angels.

00:06:57--> 00:07:00

He asks them, have you taken away the leaf?

00:07:01--> 00:07:03

Of my child servant

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

of my servants child.

00:07:06--> 00:07:08

And so the angel see, yes.

00:07:09--> 00:07:13

Allah asks, Have you taken away

00:07:14--> 00:07:21

the fruit of his heart? They say yes. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala asks,

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

How did my servant respond?

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

How did he react

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

in such a difficult moment?

00:07:32--> 00:07:36

What was his reaction? So the angel say,

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

the angel say?

00:07:39--> 00:07:40

He said,

00:07:42--> 00:07:48

he said in law he were in Isla, you're on your own. And he praised you Oh Allah.

00:07:51--> 00:07:53

So Allah subhanahu wa Tada says,

00:07:55--> 00:07:58

Build for my servant house in Jana.

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

And call it beetle Hemd.

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

The House of praise.

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

Number three,

00:08:09--> 00:08:15

migrating for the sake of Allah, hijra, and also Jihad the feasts of eat Allah.

00:08:17--> 00:08:19

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:08:22--> 00:08:25

I guarantee a house.

00:08:27--> 00:08:30

I guarantee a house in the outskirts of Jana

00:08:33--> 00:08:39

Lehmann, M. And Abby, what is lemma? Whitehair Jarrah, for the one who believes in me,

00:08:40--> 00:08:47

he accepts Islam and he migrates, he makes Hijra for my sake.

00:08:48--> 00:08:53

Built for him a house in the outskirts of Jannah and in the middle of Jannah.

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

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

and I guarantee

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

I guarantee for him, who believes in me

00:09:10--> 00:09:12

and accepts Islam.

00:09:13--> 00:09:32

And then fights jihad in my endo and because of Allah subhanahu wa to Hana. I guarantee for him house in the outskirts of Jana. In the middle of Jana will be Allah hoorah. Phil Jana, in in the highest parts of the chambers of Jannah.

00:09:34--> 00:09:35

Number four,

00:09:36--> 00:09:41

building a masjid for the sake of Allah subhanahu atoll.

00:09:42--> 00:09:44

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:09:46--> 00:09:55

Man Ben MSG den Lilla Ben Allahu Allahu Ditton Ben Allahu Allah Who beat and Phil Jana. Whoever builds

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

a house of Allah, a masjid

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

For the sake of Allah, Allah will build something similar for him. A house similar to that for him in Jannah number five,

00:10:11--> 00:10:13

praying the extra Sunon

00:10:14--> 00:10:17

praying the Sunnah and erotica

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:10:22--> 00:10:26

Whoever prays 12 raka act

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

in a day and night,

00:10:31--> 00:10:38

Allah subhanahu wa Tada builds for him a house in Jannah. In another narration of the same Hadith,

00:10:39--> 00:10:52

he said, for Raka art before though her to ask her to after maghrib, to after Aisha and to after fajr and so you have a total of 12 raka

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

these extra swollen

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

that some of us we neglect and we say let me just get over with the salah. Let me pray my forward. Let me pray what is obligatory for me, and let me go back to my daily life.

00:11:12--> 00:11:14

You're missing out on a lot if you do that.

00:11:17--> 00:11:21

Number six. So now to Baja.

00:11:23--> 00:11:29

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever prays or Doha

00:11:31--> 00:11:42

he prays for Raka out of salatu, Doha and for Raka art before Allah before Salah to her a house will be built for him in Jannah.

00:11:46--> 00:11:53

And so Salah to Doha is from after sunrise all the way to until before until before Zohar, this morning time

00:11:55--> 00:12:14

is a golden opportunity to pray to rock to rock as well for rockers and build for yourself a house in general. Number seven, pray and pm will lead fasting in the day, feeding the poor and speaking only good words.

00:12:16--> 00:12:19

These four things a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned

00:12:20--> 00:12:23

when he said that there are chambers in Jannah

00:12:24--> 00:12:27

there are chambers in Jannah

00:12:28--> 00:12:32

of which the exterior can be seen from inside

00:12:34--> 00:12:37

and the interior can be seen from the outside.

00:12:40--> 00:12:45

So one of the Bedouins he got up and he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:12:46--> 00:12:50

remain here ya rasool Allah, who are they for?

00:12:51--> 00:12:57

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Lehmann autobill. Kalam

00:12:58--> 00:13:02

we're out of time. We're done. Damn Austria.

00:13:03--> 00:13:07

Masala Leela he been lady one now Sunni.

00:13:08--> 00:13:15

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, they are for those who speak good words.

00:13:16--> 00:13:21

And those who feed they give people food to eat.

00:13:22--> 00:13:26

And those who frequently fast

00:13:27--> 00:13:37

and those who get up in the middle of the night to pray to Allah when everyone else is asleep.

00:13:39--> 00:13:39

Number eight.

00:13:41--> 00:13:46

When we come for salatu Jana, we come here to pray in the masjid.

00:13:50--> 00:13:52

And we are standing in the rows

00:13:54--> 00:13:56

to fill in these gaps that we see.

00:13:57--> 00:14:06

Between yourself on your right and your left. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Whoever fills a gap.

00:14:08--> 00:14:14

Allah subhana who were to add a will build for him a house in gender and elevate his rank.

00:14:16--> 00:14:25

And so these gaps that we find in the rows, some of us we don't care about it. And yet we're missing out on this huge reward.

00:14:27--> 00:14:27

Number nine

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

good manners,

00:14:34--> 00:14:37

leaving and giving up argumentation

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

and giving up lying.

00:14:42--> 00:14:53

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about these three things guarantee a house in the outskirts of Jana for the one

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

who gives up arguing even if even if

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

He happens to be right.

00:15:04--> 00:15:21

To give up a debate, an argument that you're having with someone, even if you happen to be right, but to give it up for the sake of Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, I guarantee a house for him in the outskirts of Genda.

00:15:23--> 00:15:29

Then he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and I guarantee a house

00:15:30--> 00:15:32

in the middle of Jannah.

00:15:33--> 00:15:37

For who? For the one who gives up lying,

00:15:38--> 00:15:40

even if he happens to be joking,

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

even for the sake of fun

00:15:46--> 00:15:47

and so lying is haram.

00:15:49--> 00:16:04

Even if you want to amuse someone, you want to make someone laugh, even then it's haram. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam guarantees, a host in the center of Jannah for the one who gives that up for the sake of Allah.

00:16:06--> 00:16:14

And then he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and I guarantee a house in the highest parts of Jana

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

for the one who improves his love for the one who improves his etiquette and his manners

00:16:28--> 00:16:45

BarakAllahu li Walakum fill Quran Allah when whenever I knew what yeah can be Matthew He made it with decreed Hakeem Kulu mattes maroon or Estelle Fetullah Haley welcome, Lisa. You didn't see me I mean couldn't even been Wahhabi. First of all futile who in know who are looking for Rahim?

00:17:10--> 00:17:14

Lola who the who? Sherry Keller who tell women dish

00:17:15--> 00:17:48

What taco law in the law hobby room be Matt Malone.

00:17:49--> 00:17:51

Oh, you who believe fear Allah.

00:17:53--> 00:18:02

Fear Allah and look at each soil to look at what it has set forth for his tomorrow.

00:18:05--> 00:18:30

Look to what you have set forward for your tomorrow meaning not tomorrow, as in the day after today? No, but rather, the life after this life? Why does Allah subhanho wa Taala refer to it as tomorrow because of how near it is. Although most of us look at it as being something very far off

00:18:31--> 00:18:50

in our home Mirana Hubei II then one Rahu carriera Allah says, they look at it as being something very far off. But we we look at it as being something very near ask yourself, what have you prepared for your akhira?

00:18:52--> 00:18:55

of good deeds? What have you prepared?

00:18:57--> 00:18:58

What have you prepared

00:18:59--> 00:19:01

for that life?

00:19:02--> 00:19:03

Ask yourself,

00:19:04--> 00:19:06

is your house in general ready?

00:19:07--> 00:19:09

Is your mansion hasn't been built?

00:19:12--> 00:19:15

And then ask yourself if it has been built?

00:19:17--> 00:19:22

Is there something that can prevent me from entering it?

00:19:24--> 00:19:43

It could be that we're doing so many good deeds, but they're all going to waste because of our loads of sins. And because we are doing injustice to others. And so they will come and take our places in Jannah and these homes that we have built

00:19:45--> 00:19:49

expecting them to be for ourselves.

00:19:51--> 00:19:54

Among the ways to build for ourselves a home in Jannah

00:19:57--> 00:19:58

is one of the easiest

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

And that is a dua

00:20:03--> 00:20:16

by asking Allah subhanahu wa to Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we teach his companions to always ask Allah for the good not only in this life, but also for the best of their alira

00:20:18--> 00:20:26

ask Allah to give you Jana to give you a house in Jannah to save you from the Hellfire

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

Abu Huraira or the Allah who narrates

00:20:33--> 00:20:36

the asiyah The wife of your own

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

when fairground found out

00:20:41--> 00:20:44

when he found out that she had embraced Islam,

00:20:46--> 00:20:49

he would shackle her up in four chains

00:20:50--> 00:20:53

to one of her hands and two on her feet.

00:20:55--> 00:20:58

And then when he would go away, the angels would come

00:20:59--> 00:21:01

and untie those chains.

00:21:04--> 00:21:25

And so she would say, as a was heard, who were to Allah told us in the Quran, she would say, or a baby nearly beaten Phil Jana when a journeyman Farah our own our family he went to Jeannie mineral coal nobody mean she would say yeah Rob, build for me

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

a house

00:21:29--> 00:21:30

near you in Janna.

00:21:32--> 00:21:40

And save me from Farah our own and his wicked ways and from an unjust people.

00:21:41--> 00:21:48

And so Abu Huraira says, and so Allah subhanahu Attallah showed her her house in Jenna.

00:21:50--> 00:21:51

So my dear brothers and sisters,

00:21:53--> 00:21:55

these are some of the ways

00:21:56--> 00:21:59

that we can build for ourselves,

00:22:00--> 00:22:03

our homes and our palaces in Jannah

00:22:05--> 00:22:17

a home that is on comparable to any home in this world, to any mansion to any Palace, in this world in which we live in.

00:22:18--> 00:22:39

And yet, even though that is the case, most of us ignore that most of us, we ignore our permanent home and instead are content with working tirelessly, day in day out

00:22:40--> 00:22:45

in building for ourselves, our home in this world

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

the question that we need to ask ourselves is why?

00:22:52--> 00:22:56

And you will find that most of the time.

00:22:57--> 00:22:59

The reason is

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

because we are short sighted

00:23:05--> 00:23:09

and we are attracted by what we see in front of us.

00:23:10--> 00:23:13

We see these palaces in these homes

00:23:16--> 00:23:19

that other people have and we don't want to miss out.

00:23:20--> 00:23:27

We want our home to we want a permanent place to live in not realizing

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

that that permanent home

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

is bound to perish one day

00:23:36--> 00:23:41

and that is long after we ourselves have perished and left this world

00:23:44--> 00:23:45

we are short sighted

00:23:46--> 00:23:55

because we are attracted by what is in front of us what we can see what we can sense

00:23:57--> 00:23:58


00:23:59--> 00:24:01

that which we have been told about

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

and we cannot see

00:24:08--> 00:24:10

it becomes difficult for us

00:24:12--> 00:24:16

it becomes difficult for us to have a desire for it.

00:24:18--> 00:24:20

It becomes difficult for us

00:24:21--> 00:24:28

to crave and desire what is with Allah subhana wa Tada when we can see it

00:24:30--> 00:24:35

and that my dear brothers and sisters is the very test of our Eman

00:24:36--> 00:24:38

and that is why

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

the Muslims

00:24:42--> 00:24:50

they differ in their Iman some their Iman is up here and some their Iman is down here.

00:24:53--> 00:24:57

What was it that made the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu

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

the likes of it

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

Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Han, to give up everything that they heard in this world, when they would hear about what is with Allah subhanho wa taala. Because for them

00:25:15--> 00:25:27

the standard was not seeing is believing, but rather for them. The standard was, I'm gonna believe, even if I can't see it, rather for some of them

00:25:29--> 00:25:30

what they could not see.

00:25:32--> 00:25:41

They would believe in it and have conviction in it there it is real, even more than what they can see in front of their eyes.

00:25:46--> 00:25:51

So my dear brothers and sisters, the only way for us

00:25:52--> 00:25:55

to change the scales around

00:25:56--> 00:26:03

so that we can desire what is with Allah over what is in our hands in this life

00:26:04--> 00:26:14

is by increasing our Eman and the only way you can increase your Eman in your conviction in a while. And the Promise of Allah

00:26:16--> 00:26:24

is by gaining knowledge by reading and contemplating and reflecting over the words of Allah

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

and the words of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:26:31--> 00:26:37

read it understand it. Let that increase your Eman

00:26:39--> 00:26:41

and that will push you

00:26:42--> 00:26:46

to work hard for your home in Jana.

00:26:48--> 00:27:10
