And we are looking here now are the
the quality of them who seek the
protection of Allah subhanaw taala from the Hellfire Valentina coluna banasura, one other by Johanna inada, Ghana Orava in the hasard Mr. Khurana macabre, which means and those who say oh our word from us the treatment of the Johanna verily it Stromberg is ever an inseparable permanent punishment evil indeed is Johanna as an abode and as a place to dwell. My rebel sisters I myself a new one of the easiest and most powerful dryers that are sort of self taught us and I
advise you to do this dryer and I also do this dryer and you must do this after do it after every sir and do it in the morning do it in the night as much as you like. It's just a very simple goal allama ideal in an
ideal knee if it's yourself personally agenda, if it is plural, me my family but Allah Hama journeymen Allah Allah ma or or Allah German nappytabs Allah humma nah nah nah
nah nah, nah. And then Jay Z times allama India circle Jelena Allah mania syllable gentlemen. Yes, sir. Luca Jana. Oh Allah I asked you for protection via Allah asking for prediction on fire or Alaska from prediction from the fire or ask for Genoa I asked for Jenna on asking for Jana. And remember, Angela, this is the data that Mr. Salam taught us and it is a dua the beauty of it the mark of it, is to do it in Arabic in the language that I'm sure some daughters but those who do not know Arabic those who find it difficult to pronounce it because they don't know the language do it in your own language. No problem inshallah Messiah, Allah subhanaw. taala is the one who accept the
law. But the first and foremost and the easiest thing to understand is how do I protect myself from the Hellfire by asking Allah subhanaw taala to protect you from the Hellfire as simple as that? How can I get it by asking for it? So ask for it make this into a constant habit of yours consciously, not a mindless habit consciously of asking Allah for protection from the fire and asking a love for entry into January inshallah. So, this is the first thing that I want to say to you today.
It is a sign of intelligence to remember our asset,
because it is a sign of intelligence to remember and to think about and to be worried about and to be concerned about and to prepare for our future. Right. Now, sadly, what as we understand this in the context of the word. So, if I tell you you should prepare for if you are a young person, I said you should prepare for a great career.
You will not dispute that you will say Yes, great, very good advice. I should do that. If I tell you as an older person, if I tell you you should prepare for retirement. Now you will say as Of course I agree with you, you will not dispute that. If I tell you you should prepare for any eventualities with respect to your health. Right? You will agree with that. If I tell you you should have some financial planning, where you should prepare for any eventualities with regard to your finances. You will agree with me about that. Anything to do with this world. If I tell if I use the word prepare, it's a good word. It's a word that we use and we should use and it is something that we appreciate.
But if I tell but remember, none of these things, which I'm telling you your health, your retirement, your career, your financial, your financial well be or anything else I can think of. None of these are guaranteed. None of them is guaranteed and none of them are we are sure about that. It will happen.
But the one thing which is guaranteed and which we are sure about it will happen is
and let's run into desert coral yet our fakuma molekule Mattila de vous que la veeco. sumaila Joe and those around that does it say to them you have Amazon Salah then Monaco mode has been set upon them and mala cobalt will extract their soul the multiple mark will bring them back to us.
Guaranteed bylaws vanita. Kowloon, I've said that a couple months, every living being will taste death khulumani la have fun, everything will be destroyed will end. My brother and sister many places the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala has promised us that we will die and we will be brought before him. Now my question is, I'm not talking to people who do not believe in Allah, I talk to him, I'm talking to you. You believe in Allah, you believe in the Day of Judgment. You believe in a soul as Allah.
So therefore, we believe in these things, we believe in that and we believe in the fact that we will be called towards to Allah.
My question is, what is our preparation for?
What is our preparation for that? How many times a day do we think about?
How many times a day do we think about that?
What do we do, to get ourselves ready
to face that day, which there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever about
that day will come.
Without a doubt,
it will come for me, it will come for you. It will come for any person who is born and living
no matter who that person is, whether that person is rich or poor, whether that person is a believer or a non believer, whether that person is male or female, whether that person is young or old, strong or weak, sick or healthy, whatever be the situation of that person, whatever be their origin, whatever be their identity, they will die, I will die, you will die.
What's the preparation for that?
What is the preparation? When we meet Allah subhana wa.
This is the question.
That is the question. And therefore the one who seeks the protection of Allah subhanaw taala from the Hellfire, the one who
asks a lot of anoter for gentlemen, this is an intelligent person.
And this is among the this is among the a class of the Almighty of resource seller that he or she is humble and that he or she seeks the protection of Allah subhanaw taala for Jana,
prediction from Jana. Now,
let me remind you on myself, seeking protection even though I told you that all we need to do is to make God The fact remains that do our without our as though value. So if I say Allah save me from the Hellfire and then I am doing actions which lead to help I am doing actions of the people of hellfire.
Then this Daughter of mine is a life.
For example, Allah subhanaw taala promised punishment dramas punishment to
Allah lamonica promised his punishment to whom
one, two people will come and check.
Anyone who joins partner with Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Subhana Allah who yup Pharaoh Nova
Allah aloha Leia flew by Yoshi kabhi Isha.
Allah will not forgive the one who joins anything with Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Even though ALLAH forgive all sins, but if somebody commits shirk, and dies on it,
dies with that Akita of Shem
dies joining partner with Allah dies in a state where this person used to seek help from others than Allah where this person was to make doc to others than Allah.
Where this person is to make such that to anyone other than Allah,
believing that this entity to whom they make so do whatever we the nature of the entity, whether this entity was you know,
somebody who passed away a grave or whatever the entity
Even if you make a May we may exercise that in that direction of the cup. But if somebody makes a such that to the car to the house,
and things that the Kaaba is going to give him benefit or harm, and if he is making dua to the Kaaba when he's covered
governing major should
fall Yabu Rob hazard wait
wait, we may do our to
Allah subhanaw taala who's the ROB of the club you're not making out to the camera the camera is only a direction finder the camera is only showing us right okay, this is the direction
that you have been decreed
that has been decreed for you that you should worship Allah subhanaw taala in this direction, which is the direction of the pillar which has come. But if somebody is doing this, this is where mellows vadodara
grant the highest reward, our will Catalano.
He addressed hotjar us one.
And he said that I made both of you, I guess you only because of a service Allah Sonam kissed you as a
as a following of his sadhana. Otherwise, you are only a stone
the tree by the
tree under which Allah subhanho wa Taala took this vital Ridwan and took from the people in who they were
in the time of our lives. He was it was reported to him that people are collecting around this tree and the people are, you know, praying there and so on and so forth. He got the tree cut down.
You got the tree cut down.
Now, it may seem like an extreme measure, you might say, you know, why did you do that? And what a sad thing to do. If this tree had remained there. This would have been the Baraka of a pseudo Sallam that who was alone was there, and he sat under this tree, and we could have gone there and it would have been Barack, I agree with you. I agree with all of that. I agree with all of that.
The Azhar of the NaVi la sala, these have their own value, these have their own burger and gorilla.
But the danger there was that the tree itself would become an object of worship.
People who are ignorant, I'm sure many of you have seen this. I've seen it many times, while making tough of the Kaaba, especially if you are doing on the on the first floor.
There are people who know the first floor that are pillars in the bath. Around the cup, of course, it's all open. But on the first floor, there are pillars. And I've seen many people rub their hands on the pillar and then rub their hands to the face.
That's the way you do that.
What burqa is this.
What is on the pillar is dust
and somebody else's sweat.
Because the number of people who are having the hand, taking that and rubbing it on your face is Baraka. What Baraka is this.
This is all the actions of the Jolla people were Jaya. May Allah save us from john May Allah save us from his guides.
We worship only Allah.
So, when you are seeking
protection from the Hellfire, we must make sure that our actions are likewise
remember the halozyme isn't a man came to him sobre la sala, Manisha jasola please make God that I should be your companion in general, beautiful work. These make I make I asked Allah make us the companions of television.
I mean Europe.
So this man came to him this IBL jasola Please, request to make dua for me that I should be your companion in general.
What individuals can do? He said to him, I will make dua, but help my dog help me and help my doula by doing actions which will take you into general.
That is me. Does the doula have the knobby needle?
Why is he saying that he's saying that to show and prove
that just Dwyer by itself is meaningless and worthless.
It's a sham. It's a hypocrisy. It's a joke. If it is not followed up by actions
which indicate that you are serious in your door.
Because if I am serious in my god that Allah subhanaw taala must protect me from Johanna then I must have actions to show that not show the world for myself.
So, the number one thing to avoid is shirk,
notice notion communica
and biogeochemist, chicken all sorts of be that right. So, let us be very clear, we avoid chicken, your word all forms of be that, because these need to Delphi, about interface banking
a lot rather than a declared war on the one who indulges in interest based banking. So, here is somebody saying Allah, Allah, Margie Romina. And the person is engaged in interest based transactions in borrowing and lending money in borrowing money for his business and so on and so forth. So this person has a right written his name in the list of the enemies of Allah because what do you call somebody who has accepted a declaration of war, we call him anyway.
So when this person has written his name in the list of enemies, all right, and is making the all SAP from the fire, what uses the diverter?
How does the organ help you?
So also, many other things, somebody who's following someone else's property, we've got people who do not give the give the share of property to their sisters,
the women get deprived, you want someone who somebody who's oppressing people, you've got some all kinds of, I don't want to make a long list of, of the evils that we have become accustomed to. But I'm just saying that keep this in mind, that when we are making and when we make de la jetavana, we must make this law keeping in mind also the fact that I must have actions which will support this dog. And that is the benefit also of making the dog because that device itself will inshallah remind me to behave in ways which are beneficial, which are positive, and which insha Allah will get will get me the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
On the upside of this, I spoke about the negative side, the positive side of this, ensuring that I am always on ahead as ensuring that I'm praying five times a day focusing on the quality of by Salah for example, ensuring that I'm fasting, ensuring I'm being a God, and then I'm giving more than that in South Africa, and so on and so forth. If I'm talking about investing in the Africa, where's the evidence of that?
What have I invested what am i given? What am I spent today, this year? More than I spent next year in my pocket?
If that evidence is not there, then where is the investment?
That evidence has to be there again, I'm saying this is not before anybody.
Do it by yourself for yourself knowing that Allah subhanaw taala knows but make sure you do it.
Right. What is the change in my life? What is the change in my behavior which is positive which will open the doors in sha Allah of Jenna for me.
So upside and downside off of this.
Alice rantala described the signs of people of intelligence, and he said Aladdin is kurunegala keyamo odawa movie waiata faac Karuna vehicle key savato not Rama Nama
battilana souhan aka tokina Adama na.
Again, Allah Rotella described the people of the people of intelligence and he said these are the people who remember Allah subhanaw taala standing, sitting and lying down on their sides, meaning in all situations in life, at all times, in all conditions.
And they reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth.
And they say oh are you have not created all of this in when without purpose? All Glory to you and save me from the Hellfire give us salvation from the hellfire.
So once again, people who are focused on the accurate because and by that meaning people who continuously remember Allah subhanho wa Taala as I mentioned in the lecture on leaving Islam, remembering Allah subhanaw taala the benefit of that is it saves us from sin.
dukkha the root word comes from the word which means protection.
So much that he is one who is protected from what from the anger of Allah is protected from sin. He or she is protected from the Hellfire
and so they are called that's why they
The meaning of the root word of
the root word for from which the word taqwa comes. So this protection and what is the quatrefoil is to be concerned about the pleasure of Allah Nakamoto is one whose sole criterion of judgment for everything they speak everything they do is, Will Allah subhanho wa Taala be pleased with this,
whatever it is,
whatever it is,
you do it, if you can say for sure that Allah will be pleased with it.
If you know for sure that Allah will not be pleased with it, don't do it. You don't go shopping, you don't try to find some, you know, conducive
ruling from somewhere, you don't do it. And the third thing is, if you are in doubt, whether something pleases Allah or not, what do you do? Do not do anything until you clear that dope.
And then you take whatever action you need to take my brother sisters, alive that is lived purely in the present without a thought for the future. And which is measured only by momentary pleasure of sensations is the life of an animal.
animals live like this not human beings
yearn immediately in the present only the present
if you have seen you know, I watch a lot of wildlife
videos and movies and then of course I do a lot of wildlife photography I go to places the wildlife one of the things one of the things to see is this allow an animal
predator gets that animals
baby or gets their animals
the next animal next to it might be you know, his cousin or brother in law or whatever.
And the next minute, this animal is back grazing is you know, eating grass drinking water, whatever, no effect
what does the animal eat? Anything that look great?
What does the predator eat anything which is living which is running?
Do they think this is Allah Allah? No, Allah didn't keep those rules for the understanding that the point is that a life which is lived only in the present without any thought of the future, and purely which is lived for sensations from one sensation to other today I was doing bungee jumping to her I am doing skydiving 30 I am doing something else deep sea diving and something else something else. My whole life is a series of sensations, assertions, that is how we are living our lives.
I eat whatever I like to eat I as long as I'm you know,
my stomach is full, I don't care where the food came from, was it Allah nothing, I was hungry. So it
eat anything that is working or not working.
If this is life, then it is a life of an animal do not even forget about being the life of Muslim it is not even the life of a human being. It is a nature of intelligent beings to think about the consequences of their actions.
And it's logical to measure the action in terms of the gravity of consequences
which means severity, magnitude, and the period How long will it last?
So any action must be measured on these two parameters. How serious is it how important serious
what is the magnitude what's the severity of this action? And number two
whatever that may be, how long will it last good or bad distinguish I'm doing how long will it last
action that have strong positive consequences that last for a long time are called investments
and action which have strong negative consequences and will last for a long time are called disasters.
Now what would any intelligent person call an action that results in everlasting torment?
justifies suffering everlasting pay
is think about that. Right?
So you have you have an action where you lose something you buy something for example right think about think about you know, what do people like to
do some people like to gamble Okay, so you go to this place you're betting on horses whatnot
we're doing something which is clearly Hara
you're getting whatever pressure to get out. I I have no idea. I don't do it. I don't know. You know what can be nice about it. But anyway,
what was doing it knows or likes
And then what happens? That is written into your account book of accounts? And on the Day of Judgment, you will answer.
And if Allah doesn't forgive you, you will get punished.
Does it make sense?
Does it make sense?
That gives me momentary pleasure, but results in everlasting pay? Does that make sense?
But we need to ask these questions. And then we need to change and correct our lives.
I go borrow money from the bank, for my business, to build a house, to buy a car, whatever the case might be.
I'm paying interest on it.
I drive my car up very nice. Who's driving the car? Somebody who accepted a declaration of water when
I borrow money, I built my house. I write on this as I'm in fact,
this is the father of Allah. No, there's not a puddle of Allah.
This is the love of Allah.
As I mean as IBM
because you borrow money on interest to pay their mortgage. And
you have declared war act, you've accepted a declaration of war trauma. How can that house of Barack
How can that house be a shirt of
you sitting in the middle of the fire?
My brother and sisters, please understand this.
Please understand this.
To seek protection from the higher is a sign of intelligence. And the one who is seeking protection from the fire. The sign that he or she is intelligent is that their actions will reflect this concern for the pleasure of Allah.
And that's why every intelligent person asks for protection from the fire. This is the antithesis of the shaitan, a materialistic system that seeks to convince the mentally retarded that there is such a thing as an action without consequences. Only the self deluded believe this
reality is that we are free to choose. But there is no choice that is free of consequences.
We are free to choose. But no choice is free. every choice has consequences, good or bad.
I remind myself I knew that.
This is the reality of life. And so we need to choose wisely.
I must run into a certain sort of the Gulf Aqua de la comida become for mansha for Newman a buncha for your pour

ultramarathoner said, and say, the truth is from Europe della delallo, that whosoever wills let him believe and whosoever wills that in this video,
you're free to choose. But the price of the choice. Verily, We have prepared for the Salima, for the oppressor, the sinners, the people who refuse to believe in Allah subhanaw taala despite knowing that he is the only one worthy of worship, a fire who's walls when surrounded
by brothers sisters, Allah Serrano della

in many places, but insert will insert unless America described Jenna all belemnite showed on the regime in dynaco Mira rabina yo mana Busan cantori era

I was around a data described and redesigned also to insert from 10 to 22. Allah said, Verily, We fear from our rub. This is what people say we fear from our rubber day, hard and distressful, that will make the faces look horrible from extreme dislike of it. So Allah saved them from the evil of that day, and gave them nothing rotten, gave them a light of beauty and joy. And their recompense will be gender
and silken garments because they were patient reclining there in on raised Thrones. They will see they're neither
excessive heat of the sun nor the excessive bitter cold. As in general there is no sun no more and there's no cold. Everything is beautiful everything is the way it should be no extremes and the shade there off his clothes upon them and bunches of fruit they're off will hang low within reach. And amongst them will be passed around vessels of silver and cups of crystal, crystal clear made of silver and given the metal will be transparent crystal clear.
They will determine the measure there off according to their wishes whatever they wish the cup will fill.
And they will be given to drink their a cup of wine mixed with xinja bail, which is ginger and a spring their constant surveil around them with serve boys or everlasting youth. If you see them, you would think they were scattered perks.
And when you look there in the gentlemen you will see a delight that cannot be imagined and a great dominion, which means freedom it means Power Authority. And the government's will be a fine green silk and gold embroidery. They will be adorned with bracelets of silver and the rug will give them a pure drink

Imagine we ask Allah for this. So Allah
We ask Allah subhanaw taala for this.
What is the what is the value? What is the value of this? He was
in Karna comb Jessa wacana sakurako Moscow.
This is a reward for you and your endeavor has been accepted by brothers sisters, and even myself when you Allah also mentioned the Johanna
was haben she Malema asako Chima t somua Jaime Mozilla Mija home la vida, Allah Karim all of these Ayatollah Roker down to for Shari boo. Sure. Well, he
was around that I said,
and those on the left hand will be those on the left hand, who will they be in fierce hot wind and boiling water, and the shadow of black smoke, that shadow which is neither cool nor good. Verily, before that, they indulge in luxury, they did whatever they wanted to do. They didn't take any heat to Amazon sellers orders. And they were persisting, and they persisted in great sin, the worst of which is shipped, and then murder and so on and so forth. And they used to say when we die and become dust in bones, shall we indeed be resurrected? They denied and they refused resurrection. And also our forefathers, will they also be resurrected? Say Obama's awesome? Yes, Verily, those are old
and those of later times, and all will surely be gathered together for appointed meeting on a known day. Then, moreover, verily, you, the sinners and deniers of resurrection, you verily will eat of the trees of the comb is a special tree in Jannah, may Allah protect us from this, then you will fill your bellies, their width, and drink boiling water on top of it. So you will drink like that, like thirsty camels. And that will be their entertainment on the day of recumbents.
As a Muslim God knows, which is the
which is a kind of welcome drink. Anybody welcome drink of boiling water. And after eating the fruit of the COVID-19 die when I do,
I'd rather just read and reflect on the app.
So that it gives us this protection from sin. Anytime I want to commit sin anytime I'm tempted and so on and so forth. I remember this is just one line should not be doing this. Because this is what allows Renata promise to the ones who did it. And I don't want to be among those people. I do not want to be among those who's who have been promised this. So I want to save myself from this.
It's a reality of our lives, that what we talk about becomes real for us. And what we do not talk about no matter how real it is seem like a fantasy. Global warming is a classic case in point.
You will see Al Gore's documentary which is narrated by him called
Inconvenient Truth. Seriously, think about that An Inconvenient Truth. I'm sitting here now in Massachusetts.
14th of December, supposed to be winter, and it's green outside is not a sign of snow, nothing.
Right? temperature seven degrees as rod is eight degrees or nine degrees in winter.
So global warming Now, why? Why am I giving this because the looming water crisis,
global warming, I don't know if you're aware, but water now is a tradable commodity in California, on the stock exchange. In futures trading futures trading is around but I'm giving you the example of that water now is a tradable commodity, because they're foreseeing a time when water will become so scarce that buying water will be the norm. And therefore people are now
literally gambling, futures trading is gambling. So they are doing futures trading on the price of water.
But it is very
important to think about that. Even though we have heard about global warming. We've heard about the water crisis, how many of us have heard the statement that future wars will be fought on water? Not on oil? Like they're like they're fought now for that resource, right?
Because solar, other forms of energy will make oil redundant.
Now point is that,
even though we know this, my question is how many of us have installed water saving taps in our homes and in public buildings under our control? We did that another one in the in our budget, we installed water saving taps everywhere by missing how many people have done that? It's not even costly. And it saves a huge amount of water. How many of us simply turn the tap on and let the water run as if the tap is connected to the clouds?
Right? How many people will have a our shower for 45 minutes? Just because you have the water?
How many of us have you stopped using air conditioning unnecessarily?
We don't even have air conditioning in our house.
Because the summer is not hot enough. You don't need it.
So how many of us don't have lights? How many of us do not use cars unnecessarily work cycle Good for you.
And the US public transport which is very, very good. Instead of using public transport views, private cars, everything is emissions.
I can go on but we know the answers. We do not talk about it. We don't try to understand it. And so it's not a priority. We ignore it, imagining that it won't happen. It's not real for us, although Allah knows, it's the more most rare and biggest danger that hangs over our collective heads. This danger is much more dangerous than COVID. The danger of global warming, the danger of mass annihilation, mass extinction, extinction, Allah annihilation, extinction of species,
water crisis. All of these are far bigger danger than COVID. Yet
we are very conscious of COVID.
It's a very good example. Because why are we so conscious of COVID because we talk about the whole time.
Every time is not conversation for the last one year people have been talking about COVID anyone you meet, do you know how many deaths today? Do we know how many cases positive cases blah, blah, blah, the whole time we are watching that but ticker tape on the on the on the TV, giving COVID figures, we've got TV anchors who talk only COVID COVID COVID COVID COVID COVID even though there are people who have were dying of cancer, the people who are affected by diabetes, there are people who are dying of heart disease. People are dying of influenza and so many other things, which are in many cases, the numbers are much more but here we are saying constantly COVID big and that's why COVID
has become so real for us that we live in a state of COVID phobia. Why? Because we talk about that. My question is, and I want to end with that. How much do we talk about
the archaea? COVID is not real, meaning it is rare or the duties but there's no guarantee I will get hamdulillah I am safe, I won't say
but the accurate depth will come will come to me will come to you. No, no, there's no escape from this. There's only inoculation there's no vaccination against Jeff.
How much are you preparing for death. And the only way we will do that only way we will prepare paper for death and prepare for the era is if we talk about it. If it becomes real for us
asking us about data to make it real for us and to enable us to live our lives in a way where it becomes real in a positive way for us by earning his pleasure. And by seeking protection from his anger. Some of the honorable Kareem Ali was way better
