praise Allah subhanho wa Taala Send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all his companions his entire household We ask Allah to bless them all and to bless every single one of us.
We love it beloved brothers and handily law.
We will be describing just a few aspects of Paradise because we cannot do justice to Jenna. In one little sittings panela the brothers are smiling already, and inshallah we will be smiling even more when we enter Paradise mama granted to us.
I have before me 14 pages full of description of gender.
And I think it will take us 14 days a page each challenge. So who's ready in Charlotte to come back every day.
Sometimes when I was in the Middle East, someone says inshallah, that means you know, okay, carry on.
I hope that's not the case. inshallah, what I will do is, we will go through a few aspects of Paradise, some we may know, but just to refresh, all of it is taken from the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam
and the descriptions we cannot come up with it ourselves, it has to be revealed, because we don't know it is a BS, that which is the unseen nobody can guess it or come up with it, it has to be revealed. So, anything to do with the world of the unseen we believe what is revealed, as much as the revelation without addition or subtraction, and we stop there, where the details are given, we accept them when they are not given we do not need that Subhanallah so remember this, this is the general rule and law when it comes to the unseen, that it is impossible for anyone to tell you believing this when they just making it up. So it needs to be something revealed with gentleness.
The good thing is that the Hadith describes as she had mentioned just before me, it describes how it wouldn't be a net, which no eyes have ever seen, no ears have ever heard, and nobody has ever thought about it hasn't crossed the heart of the mind of anyone.
fi harmala Voila.
It's a beautiful powerful statement which is repeated all the time. And another thing the Quran speaks about how everyone will have whatever they desire for think about what you're designing for now if you had it, how your life would have changed I think a lot of us have big pound signs in our heads
but the gentlemen you cannot use pounds of dollars not at all you have to make a payment here and now work now and you achieve your salary when the time is up like how you work for the whole month and at the end of the week sometimes end of the week you get your salary sometimes it's stated your account and you're so excited when you get the SMS to say you know 200 pounds wow excited happy I really tired Yeah, and they didn't know that I left work five minutes early the other day.
So we get so happy we work for a week we get 200 phones Allah says we will pay you we will give you work for your life. We set you for the what type of a payment you have what you think for what you imagine what you want. Imagine if someone told you what for me for a week or two what for as long as pay maybe a year five years after that you say what you want I give it to you. It's impossible because man's wealth depletes no matter how wealthy he is. Bill Gates, you notice the name has a gate on it. Which means it stopped somewhere is well not just carry on.
I told my cousin you know I don't intend to say things which make people laugh but sometimes it comes out I don't intend it. But sometimes it's just me I think I just I'm a normal human being like everyone else. And you know you think of things like this bill gates thing came to me now why is that?
I thought of it and I said let me see.
has eight gates so panela wide open flow you will enter from the one you deserve to enter from and some people won't be qualified to enter from any door they wish. This is why the one who fasts we know the name of the door What is it? Allah young. There are other ones according to one donation, there is a door
Call the sub for those who are bearing sub those who and there are so many names that are given and some people will be tuned into from any one of these eight those you want because you are qualified you have so many days Masha Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us entities from one door. So they will be open, whoever enters it, there is no chance of coming out again after that. And they won't think of coming out because in general, as the Quran says,
they will have whatever they want it whatever they want in it. And then Allah says, Allah de nama xid and we have something extra for them. We have something more for that we'll get to that inshallah in a few moments, but in another verse, Allah says, fee hi Natasha II.
You the wording is so unique, so powerful, in it is what the souls will desire. But your soul desires imagine the term body desires is not mentioned. Because someone might say my body's going to be depleted in the body I have here right now. It's going to as Allah says, Minghella, Tanaka mafia,
you know, we have created you from soil and we will return you, we don't want people to argue there must be no statement of argument, Allah says anfis, you will be resurrected also, again, from there as per the plan of Allah, but exactly the the fine details of what will happen, we only have a certain limit of it, we know we are resurrected, we know we will be very tall, we know we will be brought up to the age of 33, those who have passed away, beyond the age of puberty will be brought up to the age of 33. So even if you died at age 19, or 70, or 90, you will be brought up to the age of 33, a certain height sigtuna era and it's translated by some as 18 meters and some 60 meters,
whatever it is, is very big. I was reading the Hadith which speaks of the 10th, or the Abode that a person may have, obviously, we wish for it, you will be having it, and it will be there for you anyway, if you'd like to dwell in it. It is made of a pearl. You know, when you see a film, what's the size of a pool? Can anyone you know, show me the size of a pool? Roughly? anyone see one?
Yes, there you are someone saying this size, you see this size here. And I've perhaps heard of something slightly bigger, you know, you can fit in your hand, the bill will be 16 meters tall, high going high. Imagine what type of fool that must be some kind of law. And it's an attempt that you can go into. So why we say this is describing the idea to show you is beyond your imagination. The Quran says
that he was in it is whatever is desired by the souls. What talent do you need? What does it mean?
Something that's tasty, isn't it? It's bloody, terrible description that doesn't have an English to translate it to be honest with you. Because I would say for example, whatever is tasty to your eyes, but the reality is you don't taste with your eyes. Do you taste with your eyes? No, we taste with the tongue. But whatever you see, you want it you feel like having it it's already there. It's sweet to the eye. It's attractive to eat. It's your engine in this world. What's attractive to you is not yours always
see what's attractive to you, I whether it's a vehicle or something that we try to be decent
vehicle or whatever else it is. It's not necessarily yours, it's not yours. And we one of the weaknesses. That show that this world is nothing is that if you have the best of something, within a minute, you see something that you might now think is better. Suddenly, yours is nothing
is happening. You have the latest mobile phone, it's the best ever mobile phone, they call it an iPhone six, the one that just came out yesterday.
And what happens you will have it and you hold it and you're so excited. And the guy next to you has an iPhone seven and you just put yours in your pocket.
cannot happen in paradise. No, because your own spouse, for example, will be changing as for the sweetness of your eye, it's lighting. So Pamela so you weren't told it suddenly becomes a little short. It suddenly goes
you know why?
It's like, you know, changing with a fleet, not even a fleet. Sometimes you have these apps that you get on your computers where you want to change something and you try 10 different you
No, say for example, I'm just going to throw an example a motor vehicle you want to purchase. And they tell you what color would you like. And they show you 10 different colors and you're clicking to see what it looks like, click another color pick a third color that may happen such that your eye automatically chooses the color of the spouse how it is liking it. And at the same time, as a moment progresses, and I find it sweeter to have a different color, it happens that way. And something described that is even better, and more mind boggling to show you that it cannot have crossed your head. In the proper sense. All this we are saying, bearing in mind that in reality, what we are
going to have is far better than whatever we're describing here. Imagine so what we're saying musher like something, remember we've heard of how important it is to work towards this, because what's the point of talking about this, when we're distant from it, you know, one direction says whoever has drunk the wines of this world, you know, the alcoholic leave that you have, will not be drinking that in the app here which is prepared.
So if you do something here, you might not have it there. And yet Allah says you will have whatever you desire. So some of the older man have explained very beautifully, that the code of desire of that item is just removed. So you will desire Subhana Allah to see we might have 3 million 4 million desires one code is removed, you won't feel that I'm not desiring this item but you won't desire it because that little chord is removed because you did something in the dunya you won't know but others would know what it's like when Allah subhanho wa Taala causes goodness so whilst I look at something say Say for example a spouse who
wasn't loud enough my brother
that sounds more I remember the no sisters today.
once we would like to look for example at her with a specific for example, shape, you know that the woods described us so so powerful that we feel shy sometimes to say, you know the entire detail because brothers might say you know, tonight I won't sleep.
these words have deep meaning sometimes if you were to read the Arabic language in depth, you would actually blush was reading the meaning, you know, so how Allah describing the movement during a sexual act describing the movement for us, there is a word of Allah describing the perfect shape so Han Allah describing elasticity, this is something very, very deep
a lot about you and I know that the virginity of a woman is connected to hymen here, yeah, physically, so to speak. Whereas it would be such that Allahu Akbar, I hope everyone is married. Yeah.
It would be such that
every single time a person would be in that pure act, no, it is not an impure act as is considered here in the dunya where you need a bot thereafter, there Subhan Allah it is described as so fulfilling, let's stop there.
might be looking at me and saying well, why is it not fulfilling here So the reality is so fulfilling that it is mind boggling beyond your imagination in the dunya you won't get absolutely what you like how you like and so on. No, you may have the most beautiful, you know, wife Alhamdulillah.
If she has worked together with you to then Paradise by the will of Allah if you are together, Allah knows you may be having one another by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala but at the same time, we need to make sure we work towards it, you will have something absolutely perfect. And say for example, if there is a color or a shape or a size that you would like to see
your spouse in, you will suddenly find your spouse with exactly your spec in your mind. And your spouse if your spouse would like to be a specific spec for your spouse, he or she will be meaning speaking to the sisters or the brothers will be exactly as they would like to be so one thing but appearing as two different shapes to two different people. You want to be something she wants to be something she is what she wants to be and you are what you want to be it. It is to you
You would like it and it is to her what she would like.
So, there is no confusion, there is nothing that can happen that is to the dislike of anyone, the word dislike does not exist. I don't like I cannot know that does not exist. So Pamela
So, this is just some, it's just the beginning the start of it, you know,
the car, the cars, which are just underneath the the back of the knee suhaila described as
the color of the task of an elephant meaning I vary so panela but I agree of what nature the purest
almost see through we would say, you know, when the houses of Paradise are described, it is said that the bricks of gold and silver, but not the golden silver, you and I know gold that is almost see through because the one in the house, if it is your place, you can see it, you know, today you need the cameras to look behind the wall, CCTV there, your place you can see through it. And outside you can see in from outside, you can see it from inside, you can see out, but if someone else will not be able to peek into what is yours. Know, the territory is such that the person who has the least amount in Ghana will have such that if they were to travel for 2000 years, it would still be
their own territory.
for 2000 years, it's still their own territory. So had a lot. And you know, reading this is mind boggling because we can cross the globe in a few hours but with an aircraft so had a lot. And it speaks about how the person who will have the least alone will give them will tell them that would you be happy if we gave you exactly what the whole world ever had in it? And he said Yes, I'd be happy. We won't ask me more. No, I won't. Would you be happy? If we gave you double that? Yes, I'd be happy triple that for 10 five times? Well, you can have that. And then it's time to Panama. For who for the one who has the least.
And you know how I comfort myself? I always say well, it's either me the least will either be me. Well, I'm definitely better than that inshallah, because it's there's only one of two chances, you either the West guy or you better than the West guy. You cannot be West in the West.
So this is why we have hope in the mercy of Allah.
And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant this to us.
With the fool if I can spend a few more minutes the voice is according to your tastes, how you would like it, you know, you have a voice and this is why we say the voice of a woman is our fitness and you know at times, unless your speech like event
in the sense that it's sometimes so attractive that it can cause a sleepless night for a young and upcoming adolescent. Maybe even adults. But my brothers you need to know that the voice is such it is not just attractive, but it is according to what your senses consider the most highly attractive ever. So this is why when people say what I do with my spouse, you know this woman who's been nagging me for too long.
I say wait and get that went towards that alone. Not that you don't never ever because you have what you want. Whatever you want. You have is yours. You wait enough now it's time for payment.
You went to lunch.
Now it's time for payment and how is this payment we're lucky.
The sound the same, you know the smell, sometimes you have you know for our sisters, the Hadees is loud and clear. If a woman walks out of the home wearing a perfume and so on and turning the head she is equivalent to one who has committed adultery. It's a hadith we cannot deny to debate. You know it's it's something that is very scary. But in general, you will have a sense not telling your head there's no point to turn your head brother it's yours. You don't have to tell it's in front of you. But you look this way it's there. You want to know that way it will be there in a split moment. So how to love It's yours it belongs to you. It is controlled not by your voice not by your iris but
by your thoughts imagined
by your thought your thinking and things happening. I don't think they ever going to develop something of that nature.
Learn today we have you know senses you walk near the gate opens you know, when you look at it and it opens you touch it, it opens things happening. This is technology. But come up
Something you think about it and it's there every time as you're thinking, and it doesn't get stuck, you know, here or the best is not good enough. No, everything is completely perfect done. And this is why we say the sense the sound, the look, the clothing, the jewelry, absolutely everything, not only hers, but even yours.
And she will look at you as she would like to see you. And you will be as you want. So it's something it is a perfect condition. In fact, higher than perfection. It's created by Allah as a gift for us after the period of test which lasts on average 60 to 70 years in this oma so are you ready to bet patience for between 60 and 70? A lot of us look like we're between 20 and 40 years I think the bulk of us It looks like that from my eyes. So you've got a few more years to go. Be patient and the beauty is if you've done wrong in the past engaging Toba here it is here it is what will you get in return whatever you wish for beyond description Subhana Allah we have the scent of
Paradise itself is according to your liking what type of a scent amazing that scent which follows you as in how you like wherever it is, it changes with the changing of what you would wish and at the same time
there is nothing how long in paradise how's that one?
Zero haha the word haram don't exist. That was only for the dounia it was a ruling that Allah placed in order to test you that's yours, it's your own. You know when you work for someone you got to clock in at eight o'clock leave at five. When you become your own boss you decide what time you want to go what time you come back. But then again, you will have to stick to it because people might come to your business in general. There is nothing wrong, no timetables in that regard, you know, no restrictions regarding how long everything is permissible. Under My name is Salatu was Salam certain things were made prohibited for him. That is why some of the scholars go into the issue of the type
of gentleman he was in the college genda to the dealer. It could be a place of testing special place created by a lot of testing. He was tested. But the gentleman who holds the one which we will be going into as we said you enter there's no exits.
You won't think about exiting, you won't want to exit
you know today people rush to Britain, seeking asylum they never come up love.
This is not
reality because you may have certain you know, points of ease perhaps you know it might have solved a few of your problems. But will lie gentlemen in real in reality you enter you don't exit it's over the game is over. So panela yours forever and ever. Another thing there is no death in there. Nothing you know death is something that will be brought forth and destroyed. There is no death after today gone.
Imagine something else.
You will never ever be hungry but you will never ever be full. You will always be ready to eat.
No Jimmy needed.
needed. You eat what you want how you want as much as you want no excretion nothing. In fact it is released as a cent of musk according to your desire. So panela
so you eat what you want how you want as much as you want. You will never get food you know sometimes we eating and it's the most beautiful, you know food that we have. But after a limit you start feeling a little bit you know full your belly starts you know feeling full and if you've had water you can actually hear the water in it and you got to stop at that point.
You know, they say if you upload you're gonna download
Jana is not of that nature. So Pamela It is so beautiful, that you have and you continue having and you feel as light as you would like to feel and you continue and continue stop thinking of the roasted chicken and chips please my brothers that will not be there because you you thinking of it, it is something else it is like me painting
the birds of paradise which will be granted to you or me in terms of food, something that is beyond imagination, that which you will want you will want it you will look forward to it something that describes types of food that may look similar, but they will taste totally different. So panela totally different. So you have something and you will perhaps think this is what this is and next thing that tastes of it is according to your imagination. And you say oh this thing seemed like it was dead. But your imagination changed as it came through. You know your eyes as they looked you could suddenly taste it in your mouth.
And you have servants and slaves serving you
What's the word His servants that are used, that will be serving you created by Allah subhanho wa Taala. In some instances those who have lost little children, they will be there some of the mufa Syrian have made mention of it in some of the verses of the Quran that speak of that, that they may be servants in Paradise, they may be birds and they may come in a condition that Allah would like them to come to you and in the condition that you would like to see them Subhana Allah
so those have lost children remember, may Allah make you the means of entry into paradise when you get there you meet them by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala in what condition the most beautiful condition so beautiful.
And on top of that, even though you would not really need someone to serve you but that is an honor. It's an honor so handler, you you can do certain things yourself. It will happen automatically like I say you look and we are taught that you will already begin to taste just by the look. You begin to taste by the look.
But still you have service and the Hadith makes mention of the fruit of Paradise being so close at hand, close at hand meaning
you see the fruit and it is within an arm's reach. You'd like to pick it the whole tree, everything comes right to you. It's gone. It's taken. What happens today. The fruit of a tree
usually grows quite high up and that is good fruit. So people have to climb up or shake the tree before it actually comes down to you. You see it comes down to you there. The tree will actually bring the fruit to you so panela this is what is described in the plan. The fruit comes to you it comes to you so parallel and we have
something else described the faces of those in paradise will be shining brighter than the full moon on the eve of the 14th they're out there have you seen it on some occasions are huge white and shining completely the shine is what is of importance, you will be of the complexion you want but you will have a shine that is beyond description.
Each one will be of that
and something else described
is the jewelry or should I say the adornment of the people of Paradise amazing adornment of the people of Paradise, they will be adorned with whatever they wish and the terms that are used pearls rubies, Aqua marine various other words are using the Quran but remember, it is not exactly what we know here in the dunya It is something beyond that like I told you a pearl 60 meter per where's that if you had to see that i think you know you will don't have the word to be honest with you.
But we wouldn't have that we will have it in the area as we want.
The scent will be that of misc misc described as musk
but not exactly as we know it far beyond the perfect Musk, the scent that would really suit you that which makes you happy. On top of that
the houses that are built with the bricks what is between the bricks of Han Allah
is made up of different types of jewelry, different types of items, you know, what is described also
very, very beautifully is how thin how thin the jewelry will be, you know the what it is it's actually like like a leaf, a leaf of gold. And the gold. If it is very thin, usually it becomes very weak and soft. So they mix it with something here in the dunya to make it a little bit harder, because gold by nature is quite soft. And so that cat becomes lower and the value of it drops but it's very thin there No, it's as thin as is as pure as is and it's yours, it belongs to you. This is why the description of the person who will enter gender the last person to enter Paradise there is a description of it in the last sentence. And he says it's a long happy, beautiful, healthy, and this
man after having asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant in closeness to the door that after you know that we get into the door and so on. And when he sees the light, you know, he thinks perhaps this might be Allah subhanho wa Taala and he wants to he thinks of prostrating and immediately he hears the call according that I am the gatekeeper of Paradise and I met your service handler
and he says oh, you know, this is just a gatekeeper
and then he is directed further towards his own general agenda.
means the garden you have a garden as we said, minimum garden is not mentioned by is not measured by meters or kilometers.
See when the Hadith speaks of
mentioning of distance, by travel
listen to this very carefully some very, very important point, the distance we know it as meters and kilometers, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam 1400 years ago,
a different measurement to describe distance, what was that? time,
he used time to describe distance. If I were to ask you who is the first person to use time to describe distance you have to say,
today, scientists use time to describe distance. What is a light year? So, they say it's 15 light years away four light years away. So kinda love the distance, the speed of light for four whole years, that is called four light years.
Who started that? When did he get it from? Why? Revelation? So don't think these people are a big deal. They came up with something that was already there. But people said how is this described as 2000 years of distance? It says 2000 years? Didn't I say moments ago? a traveler will travel 2000 years. That's the distance of the smallest garden.
Today, they actually tell you yes, yes. Can the term Yeah, can actually you be used to measure distance Allahu Akbar, a few years ago, it would be foolish if I told you for example, you know, how high is that? And you say three seconds.
People will say what are you talking about?
You need to know this. It is Islam that came up with the use of time to measure distance Allah Subhana Allah, and this is for paradise more than anything else. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of the so this man, when he gets to his own garden, he sees the pathway leading to it full of pebbles of gold and silver, and different types of birds and, and rubies and so on. And he The door is open automatically, and he sees even a bigger light. And that happens to be the gatekeeper of his own garden.
And as he enters,
he has a peek at what's going on one foot in one foot out and he's waiting. And he's looking and he's seeing 500 years past and he's still watching.
This is mine. Like we said, You're neither hungry nor your full, but he's just watching it because as you know, lunchtime we'd have to go
if it was the dunya so he's looking until he is told to come in who's telling him that the whole
coming to Panama, we ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to grant us this gentleman we work towards and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless us in every single way. And this is why
if you take a look at the description of the trees of Paradise, the Bach another description of golden silver, one bag of gold, another bag of silver, but what type of silver see through gold see through Can you explain see through perhaps yours today we stop at 24 karat? What if I were to tell you 2400 carats. Like what we said the other day, people get excited at the camera on my phone is now 16 megapixel that's the top, probably your eyes a 576 megapixel, your eyes in mind.
We've never ever you know roll our eyes enemy focused.
And we don't realize the gift of Allah. So use your eyes in a way that will result in you entering paradise. When you lower your gaze for the sake of Allah, you deserve something that side payment is coming.
When you swallow your anger, payment is coming. It's coming. Sometimes you are told me Who shall you choose? Whichever you would like, you know socata Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala granted to us may open our doors. So
then Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran describes the something important every time we hear we say,
Tajiri I'm sure the word that God is always there. You know, the little children they asked me sometimes What's the meaning of tragedy is going to be in general and you start saying oh god means that which is flowing, but that the Arabic language has mentioned after the term flowing, what is going to be flowing, so what will be flowing, that you mean, and how beneath this garden they will be flowing rivers but rivers of what so these will
will be everlasting they never run dry. They are at a distance that you would like now How is my garden going to be? Only Allah knows.
But what I do know is if I want to see that river flowing,
I will be able to see
it who does it belong to me? How long is it the least would be 2000 years. Remember we using time to describe distance, the least of my river and what's the river so Allah describes a river of pure honey imagined by pure honey Do you know 90% of the honey in the market is not pure. Did you know that?
Everyone's looking at me Believe me 90% of the honey that's available in the stores is not actually pure honey, even though they're not 100% pure.
It's not actually pure, pure honey is something else so halala and pure honey is extremely expensive and there is a big shortage of it on the globe. They cannot make ends meet. So this is why they have a specific way of you know, this farming honey honey, where half of it is actually sugar.
Allah protect us.
prevented we saying Allah protect us from sugar.
protect us from the deception. There's a lot of deception going on. Jenna, the Quran says your honey, honey that's found down the road? No, your honey, and what is it a river. So the benefits of pure honey in the dunya it is something that will be found in the purest of Islam in paradise. I cannot describe the purest form for you. But Allah has sent it down to us through the bee in order for it to be a Shiva for me and you. The Quran says that. But in its form in the dunya we form in the form that is made specially for this word. You know, it's like the spec. We in my part of the world, we're allowed to import motor vehicles directly from Japan.
And what happens is, when you want to order cars, vehicles, they tell you this spec is only for Japan. Wow, what a beautiful vehicle so beautiful. It's only for Japan, you don't get it anywhere else. It's a top spec. And if you were to see in a country like this, that spec doesn't even exist yet. Why am I saying this? Because man always needs examples to understand, you know, so although we're using a file load example for something far higher, but just to bring it closer to the mind. If I were to tell you honey in the dunya do not think it's going to be the same speck of honey in the archaea don't it's a totally different spec. You don't get it here. You won't know about it, you
need to get there first, and then inshallah you'll see what it's talking about. The same applies to a MOOC that doesn't go back. Neither does the color change nor does the smell change nor does the tasting
room. Imagine white today you have the Thames down the road. So panela as dirty as it is nobody would take a cup and put it in a dream to say the Thames I've drunk.
Nobody would do that. Nobody because we know that the minute there is a little bit of you know, pollution this way that way the water needs purification before you drink it there. The honey don't need no purification, the milk don't need no purification. Neither does it need pasteurization, homogenization, whatever else the homies go, meaning the the
milk goes through, it doesn't need any of that. It's yours, it's as pure and it has the benefits that you would like it to have. And it will quench you and at the same time as much as you drink, you will feel quenched. And when you want more, you will still feel like you need more and you continue drinking as you wish how you wish and don't worry, you will never have too much of the dairy products.
Because the beauty of it it's not going to be the milk of a cow.
It is the milk of Jenna. Like we said the honey is not the honey of a bee. It is the honey of Jenna how Allah has the day he knows if he has chosen a method he knows whatever he's described to us we stop there, we don't need to add or subtract. So we say they won't be happy of its own nature, they will be milk of its own nature Subhana Allah they will be water Subhanallah
water also that is so pure it can be drunk immediately. And at the same time it has the benefits of quenching the benefits of
a taste that is unique and on top of that there will be flowing rivers of what is termed as hungry let me
come in let the English facility hear the term come does not refer to the blocking of the brain.
Normally the term refers to that which intoxicate but then there is no intoxication in that it is pure pure completely pure how well let's get there inshallah we will find out.
That to us, you know we have fruit juices
Have a pure blend if you have them from certain valleys, even some valleys in Cape Town and so on that I have actually, you know, tasted some juices of and from, it's amazing, it has a taste that you would never, ever have guessed existed. Until you taste it, you wouldn't have guessed that this taste exists. So people tend to say, Well, you know what, I really love this. And I like that you like it? Because that's what you know, that's what you heard about here. Neither do you know, and you you you may have heard about, but you need to wait to get a taste of it before you would actually appreciate what it's all about.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us so much. And the description is something amazing. Like we say, there is no tiredness, nobody will get tired and paradise. Imagine you get tired, you know, people go for little vitamin B jabs. People go for this and that. And people say I'm tired, we need to rest zone. No, you want to rest your rest, not out of tiredness.
So Panama, no tiredness,
no anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala he's lovely. He's happy he's over. He's pleased with you. There is nothing that you will become angry about no will Allah subhanho wa Taala become angry about anything, because that is all over the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. at that particular time, he won't be angry with anyone of those of gender, and they will not be angry and upset. And we were speaking about mozzie What does Allah have extra? He will ask the people of general people of gentlemen, after they've entered.
Do you have what I promised you to have? Absolutely everything they will say yes.
Is there anything else? No.
Now we have something we would like to give you what is it, then the barrier between them and him shall be lifted and they will see him for the first time
they will see him
and that will be the biggest gift. That the mean, we'll be having in general to see Allah May Allah give it to us.
I'm sorry to be giving this example that I'm giving but I have to because we are human beings. You know, you see something beautiful. You see, for example, whether it's a little baby with it, you know, you may have had the first hand glance at someone who might be of the opposite sex
is not too long. You know, all the brothers say.
You got to look down, you got to look down. Remember, you want that paradise look down, you look down, you will get the paradise Allah knows what you did. And you need to carry it on not just today I'm feeling holy, you know, was telling us so
it doesn't work that way. That's the weakness of man don't allow that to happen to you. You engage in tober you may tell about property sincerely. So Pamela, you look down today you look down every day, don't spoil it. So panela imagine a glass of milk and suddenly one day you put a droplet of urine in it what happens? The milk is gone. So Allah, Allah, God does purification May he make us reserved that will come out?
So look, we are diving so deep into gender and even, you know, losing track of what I was saying. Subhan Allah Allahu Akbar. Can anyone remind me brothers you also in general?
Yes moseyed. So Allah, Allah said happy? Now that doesn't mean you're still
with us. Yeah. So Allah says, this, the beauty that I was saying, we get excited when we see something gorgeous around.
That is nothing. It is zero nothing, no not imagined, the one who created the skies and the earth and everything beautiful and gorgeous, from the scenery, to the human beings to everything else, and the all the planets and everything that's flowing and whatever has come anything in that entire creation, who made it you're going to see a lot of work but
who made me you your eyes, your teeth, the pixels, everything, we want to meet him and we will meet him that will be the biggest ever gift that anyone could ever have. And it's going to be over and above what Allah has promised me and you and what you will be happy with.
We will already be happy. I mean you happy you know you give a child, one sweet the child so I'm happy, very, very happy. And you throw the bag at the child. What will the child do hope?
You know, this is a human being description. It's something minus small, something very, very finite, something that will come to an end. with Allah. It's infinite. There's no stopping. And you meet Allah May Allah
Hannah hautala granted to us and may He you know, the Hadith speaks of a beautiful word. Let me let
Allah grant us the sweetness of looking at you. Yeah Illa Allah, Allah, Allah grant us the sweetness, it means it's going to be so sweet to the eye to look at the law. Imagine if you think things are gorgeous and sweet to the eye and you're looking at it, look down my brother, there is a law that you need to look at that will be the true sweetness of your eyes.
And this is why do I ask Allah use the drought
Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam used to make the DRI Allah grant us this goddess paradise and in paradise goddess, you know, the sweetness of looking at you and so on. That brings me to another point, they will be different levels of paradise. One Direction makes mention of 100 levels of paradise. And the top will be for the top. Not to say that the bottom are bad people but the liberals depends how hard you work to handle what rank you've achieved, how much you really love the NBA. We heard moments ago, you love him, you prove that love for him, you achieved the rank. So can you achieve that rank? Now lawmakers from amongst those who do not merely pay lip service to the
love of Rasulullah wasallam. But we really become those who understand, don't insulting what is the way of insulting the seller
by innovating in the deal, as the biggest way of insulting the messenger why he was sent to me and you to show me and you how Allah wants to be worshipped. That was his job. He came here to tell us about Allah and how allow us to be worship, what is it allowance halal haram was shown how to worship Allah was shown and then we believe that the deen was completed and sealed talk to me see, whatever was in it, it was in it and there is nothing out of it that supposed to be in it at all. So that was his job. He asked us
this is my job. Have I delivered? They said yes. He says Oh Allah, bear witness the day bear witness that I have delivered. And we come in innovate local, you know what innovation means? It means there is one thing you forgot that the shift down the road new. That's what it means. That's the meaning of innovation. How can we get paradise if we want to come up with something more than what Allah subhanho wa Taala required, he sent the best of creation, to show you how he wants to be worshipped. And we want to worship Him in a way that was not there.
This is why we say you want paradise you want everything hamdulillah we described it. But this is a small explanation of how we would be insulting resumes. Come on, he was in the be cut.
we believe that he conveyed the message in the most eloquent form in the highest form. And he definitely delivered all the goods delivered, there are no goods that he forgot to deliver. So had Allah May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us that love so that we can meet him in paradise. And it is reported that all the creatures who are supposed to be in paradise had to be brought onto one level, they would be fitting on that level with ease, but still allow us to separate them into 100 different levels. This is also the gift of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala really, May He grant that to us and may He open our doors only on page three my brothers.
You know, I'd like to hit you with a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam wherein he makes mention of how if disbelieve in knew the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and what Allah subhana wa Taala had, he would never lose hope in paradise.
And if a believer and he would work towards it, and if a believer knew what Allah had prepared in terms of adapt, and in terms of punishment for the Kufa, he would never feel secure from that particular punishment, and he would work to protect himself from it. Now lawmakers from amongst those who wish to protect ourselves from Ghana, and work towards achieving gender and who work for the pleasure of Allah. People are more or less three categories one, those who are motivated by listening to paradise and the description of it. So what happens they want to work towards it when you read the Salah. This is obviously my example that I'm giving you when you read Salah
it is a payment towards what you're building in the area, your garden, your agenda.
Today, we have you know, this issue of mortgages and I'm sure in this country, a lot of people understand it. And there are people who come up with what may or may not be Sharia compliant mortgage and so on.
One says, Yeah, I need to buy the house and when we get the house we're excited, Mashallah. And I'm speaking reality. People are excited. They say, No, I got it from, you know, Amana or takaful or whatever else they have it from? And they say no, I will be paying every week, you know. So it gets automatically deducted. So if my salary for example, is 400 pounds a week 200 pounds go towards my house, and I'm excited and it's going to happen for the next 20 years. Am I right? This is what goes on, isn't it? Yes. So for 20 years, I'm going to pay half of my salary and it's gone towards what the house? So if I'm delayed, what happens? Sometimes you have people want to compound interest is
added to Billa Haram. If it is Sharia compliant, one wonders what exactly they will do. And that is what makes it different. Sharia compliant non Sharia compliant is this interest default factor? May Allah protect us. So a person is ready to pay every week half of his salary, which means listen to what it means Listen carefully, you will so hard from one time to another half of that went in order to pay for a house that you are not going to live in for more than 20 to 30 years, you know that? When you finish paying for your house, it's really yours. I think you won't really have more than 1020 years to live. I'm sorry to say that. But it's a fact.
If you're lucky, you may live a little bit longer. We ready to pay half of the effort we have made in this world in terms of work, travel home here. What can I tell you, Allah says it's far easier to pay for your agenda. Just get up for Salah payment number one.
Payment number two, lower your gaze, automatic bonus payment Allah
if Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed you in a place where they are women walking past, Allah is giving you an opportunity a bonus to earn points. So
have you ever looked at it that way?
Have you ever played these little computer games, when I was young, we played something called Pac Man, you know that. And after you eat quite a few, there's a bonus that comes up. And you run for that bonus before it goes away. And you make sure you deal with it in the right way.
Pac Man, you know your your score becomes high, you become a winner, you get excited, nobody's getting your prize, it was just a waste of time, believe me, that skill tactic kept you a little bit at ease, because you had stress from your day. And you know, pac man kept you up to Panama. But that bonus is what I'm talking about. So your Salah is the payment, you're the guy is a payment, your hundreds of payment towards your paradise, those monies that is appealing with these conditions. And at the same time, all the other things, your protections of halala from certain items is a bonus. Why we say that to fulfill your obligations is a payment to protect yourself from prohibitions is a
bonus. Have you thought of it?
Because the protection from prohibition can only happen when that prohibition becomes accessible to you.
So Pamela, so when Allah has put us in a country like Britain, we have so many more opportunities of bonuses than someone living in the city of luck.
But they will also have the bonuses of a different nature, perhaps sometimes of a similar age. Because with us to lower your gaze is far more valuable, far more, should I say? priceless? Then someone who does not get that opportunity because it's not there. Everyone is covered. So that's a gift of Allah with different nature, you have an extra opportunity of bonus, why throw it away? For Pac Man, you could understand how to deal with it for this. You don't? What's it what's more important, the paradise was a little game that you were going to talk the entire meter with, I scored 99999. So what Suhana love, it still had to go back to zero didn't
My beloved brothers, we had a beautiful few moments that I spend with you really I make dua ask Allah to grant us the paradise. Remember, everything is a payment, you make a payment. And sometimes you can pay more. It's like when you have this house and suddenly, you know, a brother comes as a brother, don't worry, I give you a million pounds. Oh, wow. First thing to do. Let me pay for my house. This is a bonus. And you can have your house I don't think many brothers would actually give a million we will not be seated here.
But it's something good. If you have an amount suddenly your business did well. And you would sort out your debts very quickly. So that's an opportunity. The same applies with paradise you can have a better place a higher rank and you can continue this is why the last thing I want to say here Shall I will be the last thing is the Sahaba of the lava and whom you know we can cry when we read that some of them were told by named that you are from Paradise. You are from Paradise. You are from Paradise. That's how we happen you can
imagine as soon
as comes back from me and he informs me
Run through a different story that you know what you already know. I heard your footsteps in paradise La ilaha illa Allah, what did they do? Were they excited right? I've got my place everything said from today on relaxing, sleeping doing what I want, everything is okay because my business class seat is booked. First Class seat. That's not how it works. No ways. They work even harder. It made them work more they gave their lives after they were already promised paradise.
Amara follow Allah He these were the champions of all imagined they were known as a machine of agenda given good news of paradise. Not one day they slacking in their Salah, they became even more regular Subhana Allah, they were working towards what they knew. These are levels let me work for my level.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the highest levels of Paradise, my brothers inshallah, at some stage, we may want to hear more of this. May Allah give us that opportunity. Like I said, the types of people one, those who attend the paradise because they want to get to paradise. So they worked towards going into it because they heard about those who will enter Paradise because they were feeling Jana, that's another group of people, those who did their deeds because they were scared of the fire. So that's why it's good to know the description of Jana. Because if, if the description of gentlemen doesn't make you work towards it, the description of Jannah my project was walking through
meaning working towards it. And the third, those were the highest level they weren't for the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah. They weren't for the pleasure of Allah. This is done for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala they achieve both protection from Jana. An entry into paradise. May Allah granted to us any one of those three ways. There you go.
