The Messenger SAW Salam says to them,
every create itself, every one of you their place, either in paradise or the Hellfire was already already written by Allah.
Every one of you is already written among the people of ultimate happiness in paradise or the people of ultimate misery in the hellfire.
For Colorado, don't ya rasool Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah Kitabi now another woman, a man says all Messenger of Allah, shall we just not rely on what was written for us and abandon action altogether? Just do nothing, because it's already written. And that's probably the same kind of impression that appears to one of us upon hearing this. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam guides the Companions
Kowloon more southern for mankind I mean, Jana, you Cirelli Emily, Jana Are we a Salah hola hola. Emelia had an agenda woman girl and I mean early Nadia Salah who are subtle Hola Hola, Mariana not the Prophet SAW Selim says everyone is guided, everyone will be facilitated, everyone will be gently will gently glide. Be gently pushed. If you are from the people of paradise, you will be guided. You will be inspired, you will be pushed to do the actions of the people of paradise. And if you are written from the people of the Hellfire, then you will be guided and moved and pushed towards the actions of the people of the Hellfire.
Jeff, it's a sort of we sort of will be my homework and things have been written. The ink has dried and things will not change.
On the surface of that meaning people think that Allah randomly chooses people in paradise or the Hellfire
but we know from the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallahu wa salam that Allah does not commit any, even an atom's weight of injustice, there is no injustice in the books of Allah.
And that's why in a version of this hadith that is collected by the man in his muslin, and so authentic narration, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when the man asked him, shall we not just give up on action and depend on what was written for us? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, said they do work horrible aim, said they do means you aim at the target, which is Allah.
The prophets of Salaam is guiding them as to how to handle this the fact that Allah wrote everything before the creation of the heavens and the earth and everyone's destiny was decided, does not mean that Allah forces you to commit evil. On the contrary, Allah says Lehman shirt I mean,
Come a yester game forever who wants to follow the straight path?
Allah has approved a mushiya. A will a free will for humans to believe or disbelieve to do good or to do evil. We all have this choice.
But the fact that Allah subhanaw taala has ultimate knowledge, Allah knows the past the present the future, Allah knows everything in every place we humans are where knowledge is limited. Our knowledge is blocked and surrounded by time boundaries. We don't know what's going to happen five minutes from now. We can't predict. But there's a great possibility we could be wrong, we could predict one thing, but we can't predict everything but Allah subhanaw taala there is no barrier between him and the future. He sees it he knows it. Why? Because he creates it because he wrote it down.
And the fact that Allah wrote down everything does not mean that we are forced to commit evil or commit good. This is the ultimate test of this life that we are free to choose what to do. And that's why the Prophet SAW Selim said said they do aim at the target and the target is Allah. The target is Jana, which means you are nearest to Allah, work Haribo. And if you don't hit the target, get as close as possible. That means try your best, or what Allah wants from you is that you truly want him That's it. That's what it boils down to. You just want Allah and that's what sincerity is. So you live this life, knowing that your destiny is in the hands of Allah.
And that's why a lot of Hatha probably Allahu Anhu used to say Allahumma inContact. Attend Iman Ali nod from honey book to be added Jana or Allah, if you wrote me down in your books from the people of the Hellfire, scrape that off and write me down from the people of paradise knowing that you do not trust yourself, even you try your best, but you know, you cannot guarantee paradise. You don't know what's your essence that's going to choose, ultimately choose Allah or choose something else. And you still have time You haven't left this world yet. And that's why the companions that of the Allahu Anhu were not sure about themselves, not meaning that they just had, they had the self doubt,
but they realize things are in the hands of Allah. Things are not in your hands. Yes, you choose. But that's,
that's the irony.
And here the prophets of salaam teaches us that we should try to do our best and that's all we can do. And then put our trust in Allah.
And that everything happens happens by the will of Allah subhanho wa taala. This makes us humble. This makes us realize that we are a bad we are slaves of Allah, He is the Lord, He's the master.
So even if we try to practice Islam and do the good things, we do not take pride in ourselves. We know that when we do something good. It is from Allah. It's the toll fear cuts the guidance of Allah. It's not our own goodness in our own merit.
The fact that you do something good, the fact that you behave well. The fact that you do great things, you take no credit for that. Yes, Allah will reward you for it if you do it sincerely. But it the credit goes back to Allah. Why because everything is in the hands of Allah.
And what that makes us do
is to focus on Allah. Focus on Allah, you might fall short of the mark, you might try your best your best your human nature might take the better review and get you to sin and get you to, to make mistakes and get you to make
some of the worst choices in your life, but you still don't give up on your target and that's Allah you still picked yourself up, move on to Allah, knowing that your excellence will not get you to paradise. Even if you do the best deeds throughout your life day and night.
You will not earn paradise with your deeds and that's why the prophets Allah wa salam says, Leonard Hola. I don't mean come on Jana tobyhanna Lee, none of you will enter paradise through your own deeds, your deeds will not get you into paradise. So the companions said what about you, a messenger of Allah said same applies to me. unless ALLAH showers me with marriage that was me with a mercy. So what Allah wants from you is not that you are paying the price of paradise, by your good deeds because they're not enough. But what Allah wants from you is your heart. If your heart wants Allah and you do your best, and you're sincere in that, Allah will make you into paradise.
This causes humility, humbleness, and not to take pride in ourselves and put our trust is completely in Allah and always be in need of Allah. Never feel that we are self sufficient that we are enough for ourselves, knowing that we need Allah in every millisecond of our lives, for our guidance for our sustenance, for our life, for our goodness, for our survival, even for our excellence, we need Allah
Apolo probably had the worst of Hola Hola, como esta?
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad in while he was happy as you may have seen, what about
Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran
to the people of paradise owed Hello Jana TobyMac Quantum Time Alone into Paradise because of what you used to do. That doesn't mean the deeds were enough to enter them into paradise but their good deeds were a clear sign that they wanted Allah
and thus they acted they did everything they could everything within their capacity, seeking in mind the human weakness, the mistakes they were going to fall into the setbacks that go into cause themselves
the bad choices they were going to make.
Yet the fact that they aimed at making get to Allah, no matter what. And one thing Allah no matter what,
and then acting according to the best of their abilities striving, Allah subhanaw taala will pick them up. And Allah will allow them into paradise where ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us from among those knowing here that this makes us know that no one enters the paradise except with the permission of Allah. No one enters Paradise because of their own merit. We all enter Paradise because of the mercy and the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala thus, what do we do we always make our hearts hold on to the rope of Allah. Our hopes are with Allah. We don't rely upon ourselves we rely on the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala but we do not rely on the mercy of Allah in a way that
makes us transgress his limits.
Because transgressing the limits of Allah consistently shows that our hearts does not want to Allah. And that means we failed the test. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make our hearts sincere to him and to fill our hearts with His love and with sincerity for his sake.
