la Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Ali was happy as mine. We praise Allah Subhana Allah to Allah We thank him upon all conditions we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his household his companions May Allah bless them all and bless every single one of us. I mean,
my mothers and sisters, this is similar to Loki. I'm sure a lot of us would be reading the surah on a regular basis. It has in it some powerful meaning and it draws our attention to many issues of the unseen and many questions related to the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala if we were to answer them, we would realize the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah commences by making mention of the Day of Resurrection and what
Yeah, meaning the day of the event. So Allah says, either work it work and when the event or the occurrence takes place
when the occurrence occurs when the event will take place. So this is Allah subhanho wa Taala telling us about the Day of Resurrection. So Allah says, Listen, you will be back there is no denial regarding its occurrence, there will be no denial, it will happen, and it's going to come.
That Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Have you gotten Lafayette and it will bring down some and raise up others. Today on Earth, you see people looking very, very high in terms of status or rank or wealth or cloud or whatever else it is, even religiously, and sometimes on that day, it might be the other way around those whom you didn't really think would be holy, pious, close to Allah would probably be there. Who knows. So this is Allah subhanho wa Taala telling us it will bring down some and raise up some others. So Allah says, when the earth is shaken with convulsion, when the earth will be totally shaken with terrible shakes, a terrible shake, Allah says
either Jatin Aldo agenda, it will be shaken in a severe way very, very severe, the earth will be shaken completely. Well, busuttil Jeevan aubusson La Hoya Akbar and the mountains have broken down crumbling, they will come down crumbling literally
what kind of Hubba baths and they will become dust dispersing just imagine a huge mountain crumbling and becoming dust completely dispersing and you become of three kinds you will fall into three different categories.
Welcome to massagin thalassa, you will fall into three different categories. Then Allah explains these three categories. The first one, Allah says the companions of the right what are the companions of the right, who are these companions of the right, those given the records in their right hand will be destined for paradise. Allah says those what are the companions of the right, and the companions of the left? What are the companions of the left? So that's the second category.
Those will be the ones who will receive their book on the left hand or in the left hand. They will be destined for hellfire. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Don't make us from those. And the third group of people are sabich una sabich hoon, the foreigners the foreigners who are the foreigners, so there is an explanation. The words can also be understood as a complete sentence.
The foreigners in good deeds are foreigners in entering paradise
was sabby Puna, Phil Amelie who sabich una de de julio Jana, those who were foreigners when it came to doing good deeds, those who rushed when it came to doing good deeds, whenever something was supposed to take place in order to please Allah, they were quick to do it. So they will be as quick if not quicker, to enter Paradise. That's one of the meanings of this beautiful verse. All it says is was savvy tunas bamboo. So when you get up for solitude in haste, when you get up quickly without people having to really bother you and wake you up for half an hour before you lay easily get up. You need to understand a savvy coolness coupon. If you are a foreigner in solitude, during the
pleasure of Allah in pleasing Allah in your dress code in giving up sin, you will be a foreigner on that day in intervention. Simple. What a powerful verse. It's just two words, look at how deep it is in meaning a savvy owner, a savvy homeowner. Those who are foreigners will be foreigners, from the Day of Judgment. And all it means here is
and the foreigners, the foreigners, twice.
Allah says those are the ones brought near to Allah they were near to Allah in this world they will be near to Allah in the hereafter. They tried to get close to Allah here so they will definitely be physically close to Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning they will be closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and others
in the gardens of Paradise in the Gardens of Pleasure, Fiji and not in name, they will be pleasure there lots of gifts, anything you want, as we spoke about last week, a large company of the former people and a few of later people.
Now this is quite scary. Allah says the numbers of those who are going to be in Paradise, a large number of former people, meaning people from the previous nations large
numbers, and they will be a few from the later people those to follow. Few.
Now obviously the Sahaba were worried they were concerned just like myself and yourselves, we would be worried, how come there's going to be a large number from the previous people and a small number from us.
But Allah continues and he described before he gives us another gift he says, on thrones woven with ornaments,
reclining on them facing each other. This is just comfort. This is like you've gone on your holiday my home, you know, reclining, beautiful facing each other, facing those you love and really enjoying yourself looking at the scenery, enjoying the fruit and the veggie and people serving you, the servants and so on. But this is obviously on a much, much higher scale, something that is totally beyond our imagination. So Allah says, they will circulate among them young boys made eternal with vessels, pitchers and cups and a cup of wine
from a flowing spring. Wine refers to pure fruit juice. Wine is not what you see in the market today. That which they call wine, that is actually a misnomer. To be honest, it's made up later on the biblical wine. And these in the Scriptures, what is made mention of is pure fruit juice. That's wine. So when they say Jesus drank wine, they're not referring to what you get here in the market, which makes you a little bit here and there. It is actually an intoxicating drink. But this is pure fruit juice. So Jesus didn't drink pure fruit juice, and so did Moses May peace be upon them all, Musa alayhis salam is Ali Salam. And Allah is promising this to the people of gentlemen. And
obviously another verse says there will never be anything intoxicating in Paradise, which confirms the meaning of the term wine, it can never be intoxicating.
As time passed, they changed the term to mean wine. And this has happened with the English language and with other languages were a term begins to be used for something different later on. And it becomes like that, for example, the word gay, if you were to say Jesus was gay, you would actually be meaning he was happy. And if you were to be meaning people over for time, even people before 1960 if they were gay, they were very happy people Mashallah. And today, if you say gay, nobody will even think about the term happy. I don't think the new generation even know that it can refer to something in terms of happiness. The same applies to the term wine. And the same applies to 1000s of
other terms that have been changed over time. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us an understanding. So Allah says no headache, will they have their from they will have no intoxicating effect, no alcohol in it alcoholic content, no headache will they
have their from nor will they be intoxicated Luffy have Odin wala hamana in the phone.
Allah speaks about them not being intoxicated by this drink, and fruit of what they select. Now the difference between the fruit juice and the fruit itself is the texture that one is liquid and one is solid. So one is liquid before you put it in your mouth already and the other becomes liquid after you chew it. So Allah says, fruits of whatever they select, you select what you want you will have
and the meat of fowl
from whatever they desire.
While eating the meat of birds, whatever types of beautiful meat, it's called something but what actually you will get something mind boggling. Something that you will be very impressed by definitely. So Allah speaks about it being meat of a bird. Now, you know, if any one of us have had birds, the smaller they get, the less meat there is, the more bone they probably isn't, it becomes difficult because those bones can actually hurt you when you're chewing and so on. You might miss one or two and suddenly, like fish bones, they begin to travel you in your mouth. But when it comes to the bird described by Allah subhanho wa Taala or the meat of gentlemen, it will be the best thing
ever to be able to put into your mouth, it will find its way into your mouth according to some narrations. And at the same time, you will just be chewing something as per your liking. If you don't want to choose it will be good for you and it will go down Subhan Allah
Don't ask me how. But that is Allah. It's a beautiful description. It's something really good. You know, sometimes you put in marshmallow in your mouth and suddenly it melts in your mouth and you just have the feeling you just leave it on your tongue and some people want to bite it. They want to chew it they want to enjoy the texture of biting through marshmallow. And Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness of the food of gin. I mean so Allah says
And for them, again, the rules the whole. And we spoke about this last week, I'm not going to go into the detail once again. But you can be assured that talk is online, you can search for it and you will be able to understand what we were saying last week regarding the whole with large, beautiful eyes.
Now, one young man asked me a question, what if I don't like large eyes? When you will have what you want? Don't worry what if you don't like fe women? Well, you can have a dark woman. So there's nothing wrong, really a complexion some people like the face skinned people, others like dark skinned people, and this is the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is just the liking that Allah has kept in people. So it does not necessarily mean fair skinned. When Allah says we're who Romanian
Allah speaking of the whole, the ideal partner for you.
So Allah says the likeness of pearls are well protected.
If you look at well protected pearls, pearls, jewelry, whatever you'd like something you would like, you know, there was a time when people used to like, very, what's the word when people used to like jewelry that had a lot of detail in it, very detailed jewelry, a lot of detail, and too many little, you know,
diamonds or little stones on it. And now, a lot of the people prefer something quite simple, you know, something that's just straightforward, it looks decent, and it doesn't have too much of detail.
So it depends on your liking this there are still people who like the, you know, the detailed one, but Allah subhanho wa Taala he is here says, the likeness of pearls are well protected. And this is definitely connected to your liking. It's connected to what you would like them, they will not hear they're in ill speech, or commission of sin. No one will say anything vulgar, anything derogatory, you won't feel bad, and nobody will say anything to hurt you. And at the same time, you won't see sin, you won't hear of sin, nothing to do with sin. In fact, it's impossible to commit sin in paradise because everything is permissible. Everything that crosses your mind is allowed.
Now, here in this world, we listen to things that hurt us my mothers and sisters, I was told by someone two days ago, that they happen to pass a comment to someone who was much older
to speaking about their weight, their weight. Now you know, weight is something very, very sensitive, extremely sensitive. The only time people would be happy at heavyweight is when they're talking about real gold Mahanama. Otherwise, even if someone is looking so unhealthy just to put a smile on their face, tell them you've lost weight. And they like excited somehow really, and they know you're lying, but they just feel so good. They start blushing about it, Mashallah, even if it's 200 grams, trust me, the women will be excited and
stop eating so much as much. So my my mothers and sisters, we get so offended when someone says you're looking unhealthy. But what if they telling you the truth, don't get offended, we become so upset. Sometimes our children, our relatives, our nephews, or nieces, whoever they are, if they've commented about our weight, and we stopped talking to them for for a long, long time, we start plotting and planning against them. This happens. And this is from shavon, because she is making you think that it's all rotating around something to do with you. Anyway, getting back to why we're saying this is because
offensive statements will not be heard in general, nobody's going to tell you you fat you thin you ugly you this you that zero, you're not going to hear anything of that nature, because it's not going to be possible to say anything negative because there's nothing negative.
So one of the beautiful explanations here or eight words of encouragement is if gender is a place where there is no sin committed, and there are no vulgar statements or hurtful words, then those who want to get to Jenna from here, they better start doing that they better start abstaining from sin, and they better start not hurting people with their mouths. So my mothers and sisters who you live with, to start with,
tell them things that will make them love you. speak to them nicely, speak to them, appreciate what they've done, tell them I really appreciate the effort you've made to look after me or to serve the home or whatever you're doing. Or if it's your child, you tell them you know, it's such a lovely biscuit that you've just made to Panama, even if the salt is a little bit wrong, don't only pick on when it's wrong, say look, no problem. It's better to have less salt and to have more because you can at least put some salt in where there's no salt when there's too much. Sometimes you might not be able to do something about it. So I really don't mind even if there's no salt in the food. Wow.
How about looking at it that way. So now when you get into gentlemen, you would have been from among those who considered the feelings of others when you spoke. So definitely
deserve nobody saying anything negative and where will you get that? Only in general so Allah may give you gentlemen just because you were careful with your tongue with the people you lived with the people who worked for you.
Those who work for you at home, tell them good things they know Mashallah, thank you very much. I appreciate it. muslimeen de como la Mallory Ward, you recompense you.
So Pamela, my mothers and sisters think hard about what I'm saying. It affects us every day. We say things without realizing we say it with a good heart. But not everybody receives it the way we think we've said it so people might say don't just ignore it you know, don't worry that's your mother in law just ignore it if she's got a good heart, good heart but you swearing me F's and B's with a good heart? Come on, man. Relax, you know they make food even if you're not going to eat it at least they know Mashallah. It was a good effort. Learn to appreciate, see how your home becomes a mini paradise. So panela people will love the atmosphere because nobody's at each other's throats.
There's so much of love. People make mistakes, who doesn't make mistakes, you don't have to you know, the world will not come to an end just because I made a little blunder or you did no. But your house can become a hell because of the way you reacted to the mistakes of your relatives those whom you live with your children your parents, your brothers and sisters your in laws whoever else those who work for you. You don't have to get so excited because they made a mistake so what
when you die they will remember you to say you know this person male or give them gender whenever I made mistakes I broke the pots I broke the glasses I burnt the food. They always said don't worry don't worry my child it's okay nevermind so long as you're not hurt. That's okay. So panela they'll make do it for you when you're gone.
They will make a lot of laughter they will cry when you're gone.
But the way we operate the probably waiting to have a party the day we leave Stanford Allah May Allah forgive us. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala helped me to start with, really I need to rectify myself. That doesn't mean I'm a bad egg. It's just that we all need to think that no matter how good you think you are, there is room for improvement. Don't sit back and think hey, you know what, I think I'm good enough. I'm probably the best. Always don't ever think that never that shape are now trying to make you brag or think big of yourself when there is room for improvement always. So imagine Allah subhanho wa Taala says here they will not hear their initial speech or commission of
sin. Only a saying of BSP. sapan Allah
illa pillon Solomon Salama, the only thing they will hear is peace and peace, peaceful statements, peaceful words words, referring directly to peace, the word peace itself that's the greeting of the people of gentlemen, they will just hear peace and goodness they will feel peace and goodness they will be happy completely and this is why if you want a little paradise here in this dunya you just need to be easygoing and as close as possible to Allah improving yourself being kind to the rest of the creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala will open your doors
when Allah says the companions of the right what are the companions of the right they will be among load trees
with thorns removed
and banana trees layered with fruit, different types of fruit It looks like a banana tree but what's on it is not necessarily a banana, different fruits layered Subhanallah imagine pause for a moment and think imagine just
try and imagine a banana tree and it has only pears and apples and plums and watermelon and whatever else you want Mashallah, imagine just imagine that you can't really imagine because
we're not yet in general Subhan Allah
but when you get there you will have something looking really amazing unique and not just one banana or not just one strawberry one and not the strawberries of this world something you know a great you know, I remember the fruit when you buy fruit. They tell you that the best of your fruit has actually already been exported. I don't know if you've heard that. So they tell you what you're getting is actually the second grade Imagine if the second grade is so good. I wonder what the first grade would be like.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us
and imagine if this is first grade top fruit, what would the fruit of gentleness be like? I'm sure all of us have tasted some fruit some way in our lives that we've really thought was the best we've ever had. So Panama you know those beautiful sweet threadless mangoes in what threadless means? Yeah. Beautiful ones, you know that. You slice out a big chunk of it, you know, and you just put it in your mouth and the next thing you know is Mashallah.
Imagine what will
In general Subhanallah layered with fruit. These trees looking like banana trees will be layered with different fruits and shade extended. Our banana tree does not provide a lot of shade, to be honest with you, as much as other trees would because of the nature of its leaves. But Allah says shade extended not only from those trees, but different types of shade by Allah subhanho wa Taala as will and mercy and power analysis and water poured out completely. So it's water. It's not just ordinary water, but it's poured out.
And fruit abundant and varied. Look at how many times I'm not speaking about fruit. And this is why in reverse and salted butter, Allah says,
The fruit of Paradise will look sad, will look like some fruit of perhaps the dunya. But it will not taste the same, it will taste better or it will be having similar names, but it will be totally different. So if you say a banana of the dunya and a banana of Jana, they will be two different things, but they had the same name.
water poured, and fruit abundant and varied, neither limited to season nor forbidden. So it's not limited in quality, quantity or timing. It's not limited you can have how much you want. You can have exactly the best type you want as much as you want. And whenever you want.
SubhanAllah and nothing forbidden. You know there was forbidden fruit in heaven before that was as a test for Adam alayhi salatu salam. So Allah called agenda to live dealer or it was called agenda to live dealer, the garden of testing, it was just for Adam alayhis salam. So I was confirming that that will not be there, nothing will be forbidden there. The test is over your purpose of creation has already materialized.
And then Allah says and upon beds raised high indeed we have produced them
the whole in a new creation.
Here again alive speaking of the whole
we have made them virgins. Now, the term used here open at Robin, Allah subhanho wa Taala obviously has used that term, the English language is not qualified to translate the term of the Arabic language open at Robin. But there are many attempts of how to off translating this and how to explain it to people. However, we will only understand the true meaning of it in general. And like I said, No need to be stressed and upset because each person will get whatever satisfies them whatever makes them extremely happy, the happiest ever, they will never ever look at another person or something else and desire for what they have, they won't. In general you will never desire for what
someone else has. The reason is, you will have it or better than it.
So Allah says devoted to their husbands have an equal age.
Now we spoke about the women of the dunya and we did say that Allah will make them exactly as they wish to be made and Allah will grant them whatever they wish to be granted. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will give them absolutely everything but one thing we didn't make mention of is the age so what how old Will I be today For example, some of us are 30 4050 Some might have got 260 Mashallah a few might have got 271, two might have got 280, and perhaps one might have got 290 and, and that's about it. I don't know of anyone beyond the age of 110 in our community.
when the person passes away, it's not like they're going to be resurrected upon their last age. Because your age was a figure that was different from the others. You will be resurrected at the peak the peak the best. And the body you will get is different from the body you have right now. It will be perfect, absolutely perfect perfection. You know, no moisturizer, no more. Whatever else no more worried about how am I going to go out and looking so bad, and so on. You know the words
that you look absolutely stunning? Mashallah. Mashallah Baraka 33 years old, all as ever beautiful
Mashallah, come alive gorgeous, not drop dead gorgeous.
That's Allah subhanho wa Taala his gift, the age of 33 that's what it is. The age of 33
you will be so impressed with what Allah has given you so impressed amused. You will be really so amused that you will be literally admiring your own self. Looking at what Allah has given you one was this what am i is this what I am Subhana Allah hamdulillah Mashallah. The smiles
and even the teeth will be proper Mashallah.
As you smile you see the little you know, like a little lightning come out. Not a bad one but strikes
so panela forget about all these Colgate adverts and everything else. My mother's and sisters beautiful smile, million dollar smile not even because they won't be dollars there. But something really good your hair your whatever you you will look absolutely stunning Don't worry, I'll give it to you He will definitely give it to you. He will definitely grant you This is why in a place in the Quran he says can Allah Arabic a warden masuleh This is a promise made by Allah that you will question you can question him about you hold him responsible literally. I mean, who would want to use those words for Allah He uses them himself. My school, meaning you answerable you will ask him,
Oh Allah, you promised to give me this, where is it? Allah says you can do that. But he will give it to you before you can even ask. So you won't need to Subhana Allah, because he is the most truthful.
So this is why don't get stressed when you hear about the virgins of Gentlemen, I don't even like to use the term virgins, just use the word hole, because it's an explanation that the English language does not qualify.
To put forward,
just use the word hold, they will be holding gentlemen, that's it. You don't need to translate it, there's no translation for it.
And Allah says, These will be for the companions of the right who are accompany of the former people and the company of the later people. Remember earlier Allah said, a company of the form of people and the smaller group of the later people and we were saying the Sahaba Allah Han who were
So now Allah changed it.
He gave us more information. What is the information, he says, the company of the former peoples and the company of the later peoples and according to the Hadith, it's actually correct both ways. Because
number of people going into Hellfire will be huge, but the bulk of them will be from a judge and judge according to the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And they will take up the bulk of the spaces. So there will still be a large number of people in general. And another thing is when a person of the oma goes into Hellfire, in order to be forgiven for the sins they may have committed, something very interesting is that they will not serve an eternal sentence there, they will just serve the sentence that is limited and they will come out they will be granted rejuvenation and placed into gender given entry into Jenna thereafter into paradise. So they will be two types of
people or three types of people in general two types of believers and one, those who are not believers. So those who worshipped or associated partners with Allah worship deities besides Allah, they may be cast into Hellfire by Allah subhanho wa Taala to eternity. Eternity meaning no one who forgives them Allah says I won't forgive you it's over. The whole test was rotating around this one simple thing. You had to worship Me and Me alone, no sticks, no stones, no saints, no trees knows no anything you must worship Me Me alone and directly me that was your test. That was the only major test it was like asking one plus one. If you fail one plus one you cannot go beyond grade one. Trust
You cannot go beyond so you fail that so your whole stay in this world was all a failure. And if you pass that and then you committed a few sins here and there, but you only always worshipped Allah you asked his forgiveness. You made sure you tried your best but you only worshipped Allah alone. You understood you respected the messengers you understood Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the best of creation, the most noble of all prophets, the highest of all the one who came to us with the message of Allah. But you did not render a single act of worship to him or to Jesus made peace be upon him or to any saint or you did not have weird beliefs about prostrating to saints, or the fact
that they are the ones whom we need to call out to because they are the ones who own a lot of angels, and so on and so forth. All these types of belief may earn us something really great.
If you've understood all this, and you abstain from all that which was wrong and bad, Allah says no matter what you've done, after serving your time in Hellfire, we will grant you entry into Jenna. And some Allah says, we will just give them forgiveness because of a single deed that we love. That was outstanding, absolutely outstanding. It was difficult for them to do but they did it for my sake. So if we see one deed in the life of a person who did not associate partners with Allah that we love, we will grant them gentlemen in return. For example, a person who worshiped Allah alone and they had so many bad habits but one day for example, they were compassionate towards a dog or
towards a cat, a llama Grantham agenda because of that deed that was outstanding. So imagine if you are compassionate to a dog and you got genda for that, how about if you are compassionate to your own family members of law Akbar?
Allah might give you a gentle nudge just because you kept your mouth shut when you wanted to sway
Allah might give you agenda because you kept your mouth shut when you wanted to say hurtful words.
And he knows how it was your habits for a long time to just blurt out whatever came to your mind before it actually came down through your eyes and nose, it was already uttered.
Now you started holding back for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So this is why we say these deeds, single deeds, don't underestimate their value, you might be a sinful person and you ask Allah forgiveness constantly, and you don't worship anything besides Allah, and you found it very, very difficult to cover that head of yours. But you said, Oh Allah, it's as difficult as it is for you. I will do it.
And so it was done. And so imagine if Allah calls you out and says, Listen, you've got a mountain full 10 Mountains full of evil deeds, but you worship me alone. And I noticed you did something for my sake, when it was tough. An outstanding deed. I want to just let you know through my mercy, I give you gentlemen no reckoning today, you can sail straight through, go ahead.
That will happen it can happen. The same applies to charity. Sometimes we become stingy, we don't give. We need to give but everything you have, but give something reach out to people and stop looking at what others are not doing. You know, we blame Oh, what are those people doing about the refugees? What are these people doing about this? What did you do man? Allahu Akbar. We lose focus because we want to talk about others. Now I donated I donated 10 pounds Okay, Mashallah 10 pounds out of the million stashed away Subhan Allah
Allah Zimbabweans maybe read a little bit excused Allah forgive us.
To a certain extent, we may be not in such a brilliant position because of what we're going through. But trust me, everybody's going through something quite similar. different nations. I mean, I've been traveling quite a bit and everywhere there are people who are struggling and things are not as easy as they used to be, no matter where you go. So hon Allah.
I was watching rioting in a neighboring country just a few days ago. And it was absolute looting, and everything in wealthy people must have suffered big knocks. And we thank Allah for the peace and stability we have in this country and hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah. Thank Allah we seated here hamdulillah we take it for granted. Imagine if a lie to take away from you what you didn't thank him for today. But I think most of our stuff would be gone.
So going back to the verse, Allah Subhana Allah Allah speaks about how the numbers will be large from the those of the form of people as well as the later people. And the companions of the left, what are the companions of the left, they will be scorching in fire, scouting water, and the shade of black smoke, neither cool nor beneficial. Indeed, they were before that indulging in affluence. They may have been wealthy, they may have been comfortable, they may have been leading live a life full of consciousness, full of comfort, and full of everything good. But at the same time, it was taken away because they were people of the left the left meaning they got their hands. They got
their books in the left hand.
So Allah says they used to persist
in the great violation. What is the great violation?
association of partnership with Allah shake.
Allah says in the Quran so many times that schilke is one thing that is really really grave I will not forgive it if you die without seeking forgiveness from it. This is why it's important for us to keep on talking about it. Keep on reminding, don't be careful who you worship Watch out shaytan is coming shaytan promised Allah from day one that I will make them worship other humans I will make them worship other creatures like sticks like stones like graves like artifacts like relics, whatever else it is, we will respect things we will not worship them. No rendering of worship you worship Allah Allah alone. Allah is the one who forgives you him alone will forgive you. Nobody else
nobody else is the owner of forgiveness. Allah is the one who gives you good fortune. Allah protects you from misfortune you seek from him, nobody else no so no Stone, no saint, no person whom you think is pious knows priests. No Rabbi knows zero nothing besides Allah, Allah alone, you put your head on the ground for Allah He is the one who will grant you the goodness that you're searching for. He is the one who will grant you the cure. He is the Knower of the unseen. Rob believes that he will gela so those who are at the biggest loss are those who associate partners with Allah. here Allah says they will be the people of the left. They associated partners with Allah. They persisted
in the great violation of shift. And they used to say, when we die and become Dustin bones, are we indeed going to be resurrected and our forefathers as well or Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam tell them indeed the former and the legal
to people, they will all be resurrected, they are going to be gathered together for an appointment of a known day, then indeed you owe those who are astray. Who are deniers will be eating from the trees of the boom
boom is the tree of jahannam or the trees of Johanna. It's known as that which is extremely horrible. It is full of punishment, it causes the breaking up of the intestines
and filling it filling with it your bellies and drinking on top of it from the scalding water.
They will drink as the drinking of thirsty camels because they will they will have to drink but the drink that will be there will be full of blood and pass and boiling and bubbling liquid.
That is their accommodation on the Day of Recompense that's the day they will be given back in return for their deeds, the deeds they used to do, we have created you. So why do you not believe? Allahu Allah says we have created you. So why do you not believe
shala we're going to continue from there next week if Allah gives us the opportunity to do so, for now, my brothers and sisters look at how Allah speaks about the beauty of the people of the right and the gender they will get and the goodness they will get. And after that, we all became frightened by the description of Johanna once again. May Allah protect us and to be honest, I need to end with the statement again. Let's protect ourselves from association of any form of partnership with Allah, you worship you worship Allah alone.
When you're worshiping.
You need to imagine that you worshiping Allah and Allah alone, you need to try and know that Allah is watching you and if you if you can, picture that you are worshiping looking at Allah then Alhamdulillah If not, then at least Allah is watching you. This is the meaning of the term SN and taboo de la haka, Anna Katara. Who for inlanta contura who find Nora, as though you are watching him, you worship Allah as though you're watching him.
Now you have people who try and associate partners with Allah make you associate partners with Allah by saying, No, no, no, don't imagine Allah just imagine your shift. This is a shift. So when you worshiping just picture him, when you're asking, just picture him because it's through him that Allah will give you it's through him that your Salah will be accepted. That is exactly the shift we're talking about. That is exactly what Allah is referring to when he says people worship others and when you ask them, why are they doing it? They say because we just want to get closer to Allah we're too dirty to go directly to Allah. So we want to wish these Olia manabu, to whom Allah Leo
curry buena, Illallah hezonja. We are only worshipping them so that they can get us closer to Allah, the levels they are on a higher level says who they if they are on a higher level? Yes, indeed they may be. But that doesn't mean you refer you meaning you render an act of worship to them not at all. Be careful. Allah says, you want to picture you try and picture the right thing. You don't imagine your shape when you're worshipping Allah, and then people say no, no, no, after a while, you can transfer that imagination to Allah when you get to a higher level. What higher level Islam is not some cult. Islam is not some, you know, some something that that has these scary, you know, dark
levels where people are supposed to get from one point to another, and so on in a way that the whole teaching changes know the teaching is the same, your levels will be changing and going higher or lower based on your deeds on regarding those particular teachings. It's not like the teachings change every level you're upon. So don't be fooled by people who say that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. May Allah help us. This is why a lot of people begin to worship their scholars, they begin to worship people, they begin to worship others whom they think are pious. It is the duty of those who are pious to ensure that they constantly tell people we are just mere mortals like you,
perhaps we are worse, just so that they keep them from crossing the little fine line between respect and worship.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us in terms of belief may make us from among those who believes that he is indeed the supreme creator. He did not need help. He doesn't need help. He doesn't get tired, he won't get tired. He doesn't sleep he doesn't require assistance, and he will not call upon anyone to assist him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us Jenna was Allahu wa salam o Baraka island.
