Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Muhammad Allah Al Ameen. Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa being a woman who served in Isla yo Medina.
We commenced by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala sending complete blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
We asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless him and his entire household and we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala
to bless all his companions, those who gave their lives
those who were told that theirs is paradise, but that did not make them arrogant. Rather, they still sacrifice their lives in a way that today the deen is with us, may Allah bless them.
And may Allah unite us with all of them in paradise.
And we ask Allah to bless also
in the chain of scholars of this Deen who have come down from that time to our time
who have struggled in various ways in order to preserve the deen protected conveyed to others.
And we ask Allah to make us from the same
brothers and sisters. It is something serious.
This Deen is a gift that Allah has bestowed upon us. Ask yourself, why is life so short?
Why is life the longest from amongst us, meaning the one who has lived the longest from amongst us would not exceed 100 years in most cases. Why is it such
and these years are calculated through these hours that are so short, the minutes that the Hadith describes where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says towards gamma
time will be crumpled yet uporabo salmon time will be crumpled in a way that the year will pass as a month. The month will pass as a week. And the week will pass as the day and the day will pass as an hour. That is where we are today.
You would clearly remember to three years ago as though it was yesterday. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us why is life so short? It is because this is not the prime aim. And this is not what Allah has actually planned for us as an eternal abode know he has another place that he has made. And he wants us to earn it.
Today when we have an unruly child and this is a very distinct example, but certainly to bring it closer to our minds, we might entice the child to say if you'd like to play with your iPhone for 10 minutes, you need to earn it by reading Quran for 10 minutes. Or you need to memorize this chapter. When you hand in your web I will allow you to play with this for 30 minutes. So the child is earning something that you are a loving father, you know that you love your child you must have bought that particular iPhone or whatever it is for the child himself or herself. But as an incentive you have kept something so that they achieve and you set down rules and regulations. If you do this, which is
something bad, I will penalize you by deducting the hours. This is an example that is a dummy example, belongs to this world. But Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about something much more lofty, from the very beginning. He has told men
follow control gene.
Allah says I have not created mankind or humankind, except so that they worship Me and this is in the temporary life which the Hadith describes as an average of between 60 and 70 years. So just for 6070 years, you will have to worship Allah and so will I and in return what will he give us? He gives us a paradise the door of which from one side to the other will be a distance calculated not in kilometers, but in years. It will take a person 40 years of
To walk from one side of the door to the other, and ally saying Subhanallah you've only got 70 years max approximate we saying here in this world and that too is such that it's calculated with these minutes that move so fast. There was a time and this is a miracle of the Quran. When Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked, What is the distance between a certain place and another place of the era? He replied, so many years, people looked at him, distance is not measured in years, it's measured in, you know, nowadays, we would say centimeters meters, inches, kilometers miles, whenever you have that you say, for example, 2000 miles a million miles, why would he say so
many years, but people jotted it down. When he said that the scent of Paradise can be smelled from 50 years away.
This is mentioned in many I had the smell of it 50 years ago, certain crimes are such according to the Sharia, that when someone engages in those crimes, they are told you will not be able to smell the scent of Paradise, although it scent can be smelled from 50 years distance away, it means you're not even going to come close, May Allah not make us from those like pride, arrogance, may Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us from such crimes.
So when it was described, when distance was described in years, they came a time Now recently, a few decades ago, when they tried to calculate the distance of the stars. And they said, if a person or if at the speed of light, which is extremely quick, if a person had to move at such a speed, not for an hour, but not even for a day or a week for one whole year, speed of light, one whole year.
We will call that one light year.
One light year, look at the word year it came back now new technology telling us calculated through years, the closest star that we have here is four and a half light years away. Did you know that Subhana Allah, the closest star to ask is four and a half light years away, which means that the speed of light if you were to move not for a minute or two, for four and a half years, you'd come to the first star so much so that when we look up, we are seeing a reflection of the light. There is actually perhaps of a star that might have already been extinguished four and a half years ago, and we still seeing the light because it takes that light four and a half years to come to us. That's
how we men is we are so small and so insignificant. And Allah says we will give you a paradise. If you do what if you worship us, and we have made worship easy for you. Oh, man, you know the verses I read a few moments ago Allah says, Allah is not asking you for sustenance. He is the provider. He is the one who gives, he will give without his app without a measure, no measure, take. What do you want? Say it, it's yours. Imagine you just thinking and next thing, it's yours. I was traveling here in the city and we saw a gold mine, a huge gold mine. I don't know if it's operational at the moment. But these mountains and you move for about half a kilometer. And it's a goldmine. And then
you think to yourself, imagine if I were to move for 40 years in a car, and that was still to be my goldmine. People would say, oh, you're the richest man in the world, not 40 years by car. But that speed, top speed. And the years are calculated multiplied in
one day with Allah is equivalent to 1000 years from that which you count in this world. So if I were to say 40 years, it's actually 40,000 of our years. Now one might ask a question that why in the Quran is the term 50,000 years used in one place, no contradiction. 50,000 is describing the Day of Judgment.
But after that, in the era, it is 1000 years. So one day is equivalent to 1000 years. So in fact, not 40,000. If it's 40 years, each day in those years is multiplied by 1000 years. I don't even know it's mind boggling. You definitely need to be a Zimbabwean to understand those figures.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us may open our doors will lay my brothers and sisters. The dirty smelly sins that we engage in are not worth it. When you read the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, wherein he says on that day, an adulterer or adulterous will be recognized by the state of the private paths, you feel disgraced, May Allah forgive us all. Imagine the stench of the private part gives the person away. This man's an adulterer adulterous May Allah safeguard us. If that is what it is, those smelly sins are they worth it? If you look at the other side, jahannam is such Allah has kept it in a place where you have to cross it to realize and recognize now the gift
you are entering.
Allah describes this bridge that is on top of jahannam we would call it Sarah.
And that bridge, you have to cross it it is a light. Those who are
conscious of Allah and have engaged they've tried their best in engaging in the pleasure of Allah and abstaining from prohibition. And seeking constant forgiveness of Allah. Allah says for them, they will cross like a flesh
net jilla T and a taco we will save those who are conscious of us who had taqwa piety, those who feared us they feared the punishment, we save them they will cross that bridge, like a flesh. But as for the others, May Allah not make us from amongst the latter. As for the latter, they will cross they will wobble and drop into Johanna. Allah do that to us. It's like tight roping, but not tight roping, tight. Hearing if that's a word, like a little, Hey, you know what the rope is? How many? Here's a whole lot like a plat. This is just one head. Like, imagine how will we cross May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us. So when a person sees that, and then is saved, he understands
and realizes, one might ask, why does Allah describe jahannam
it's quite dooming to be honest with you. Because some people do not change their habits and they do not feel that they need to do anything they do feel they owe nothing to Allah until they are given such warnings that they are frightened.
Like I always say this is an example we all will relate to let them put a 60 kilometre zone here in benoni. And let them start trapping. I don't think anyone would not break. If they knew that there's a trap right here. We would break because why there is a limit. We don't want to cross we are worried about 1000 Rand fine, that's all we worried about. So Allah says sometimes you need to know we have limits as well. But because the fine is not described to you, you think it's okay, you know, I got a connection there. The traffic department will squash the fine that's the word they use will squash it. bribery will never help you in the APA. Not at all no squashing there. We get squashed
Allah protect us, really. So this is why Allah describes Janna because you need to know what's the filing so that when you come to the limit, you slow down this is the limit of Allah. And Allah uses the word limit Allah in many Kumi Malik in an hour in the Himalaya Hema Harimoto in one long Hadith in Sahih Muslim and even it's
narrated by Norman
he makes it quite clear that Allah has limits
and what are his limits what he has made prohibited those are his limits you don't cross them haram haram break if you've crossed by mistake a speed higher than the one you're supposed to have been. What happens you're worried if you know someone who can very sorry the traffic man stops you say I'm very sorry you know, let's put bribery aside for now. But I'm very sorry please You know, I was in a rush or something so on you know, stavroula one men and Allah protect us you know, people like to deceive. So when man says the best way is you keep a bottle of water as soon as he stops you and the guys walking to your window, pour the water on your lap and tell him you know, I was desperate for
love. Allah protect us.
Allah protect us that desperation will never help. That is deception. Look at how long we can stay to get away from 1000 2000 fine, why don't we realize that the
Find that is in place for crossing the limits of Allah subhanho wa Taala is far higher.
So Allah describes Johanna, but some people don't like to listen. It's a Don't tell me. It is just like the people of courage.
When Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was reading the verses of Hamming as such,
and he got to the verse for in
if they are going to turn away, they are going to cross the bounds and our limits if they're going to deny or turn away, warn them of the punishment that was sent to AD and he put his hand on the mouth of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and says stop, stop, stop, I don't want to hear and he walked away. So some people don't want to hear. So like we say, certain people put their breaks when they know how big the fine is certain people that doesn't help them, when they know something else, the good side of it, so Panama, when they know some of the good side of it, they work towards it. For example, if I were to tell you that you drive according to the speed limit, and if you have no
points on your license in the countries where they issue points on the license, and you have worked at this workplace for 10 years, we give you a salary increment of 10,000 pounds, for example, I think a lot of us would make sure that we have just set our vehicle on the limit. That's it. Why because to get an increment of 10,000 pounds at today's rate of 1547 to the pound.
And that's the real rate.
Believe me, it's a huge amount of money.
Immediately, we would say you know what, it's not worth crossing. So why are they breaking? Not because of the fine because they go they want to get what they've been promised. So Allah subhanho wa Taala knows man, and this is why Allah describes Jana first. So those who want to work to save themselves from Johanna it works. And if the people are not ready to listen because they feel doomed, then the other one works because now you're getting a payment and you say your price, Allah says Say what you want give it to you.
So today we are here to describe a little bit of this.
We ask Allah to bless us to see the gathering we are seated here. If Allah allowed us to see the unseen, we would see angels around us protecting us making dua for us, we would see the mercy of Allah descending upon us because we are seated here remembering Allah and we would be able to hear Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned us by name to the angels because the Hadith says whoever gathers in order to listen to the anything to do with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala and listen for the beam to try and go forth or the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala the angels around them, there is mercy that descends there is Sakina which is the comfort the the beautiful feeling within
the spiritual kick we would call
which is descending Subhanallah for all of us. The spirituality right now is totally different from what it was before we had come here and it will be different once we leave. So you want to effect changes in your life. The promise needs to happen here and now. May Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses.
So let's look at what Allah subhanho wa Taala says. Before we embark, we need to look at the general atmosphere. Today we have a turd in our hearts. We have pride. The Hadith says the Quran gentlemen can have
a better means of delivery. A person who has a mustard seed weight with of pride in his heart does not qualify to intergender
May Allah protect us
we sometimes work against one another we don't like this brother that brother when we get to Jenna mela granted to us say I mean because you don't know what time of kabuli what time of acceptance of Dr. May be May Allah granted to us ami
with Allah subhanho wa Taala It is amazing. It is something beyond our imagination.
And I was saying moments ago if Allah had allowed us to see the unseen we will see so much this gender that is being described for us like I was saying, today we are going to hear something but when you see it will be totally different. Why? Because the Hadith says fee ha ma la
Walla satara Allah Toby Basha. Remember these three things at the end baddie. asahina Mela
Walla satara Allah, Allah is saying in a hadith bootsy I have prepared for my
pious worshipers. Now when we hear the term pious we're looking at the ankle with a long white beard, anything, perhaps him, perhaps this one. It's about time. We asked ourselves, where do I fit in? Hope is for everyone. So much. So the Hadith says, Allah created mercy divided into 100 different portions, he released one, he kept 99 for that day, we are being hopeful. If the kuffaar knew
of the hope of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Not a single one of them would lose hope in entering gentlemen, did you hear that.
And if the meaning knew of the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala, not a single one of them would feel safe from being fallen in or dropped in or cast in, Allah safeguard us look at the balance that we have here.
So that is the mercy we are asking for.
When we get there,
the brain we will have will be totally different from the one we have right now. So you're thinking now that if I'm going to be with this husband of mine, I don't want to go to gender that will not operate there because your brain will be different. And his will be different too. And if you're thinking this woman here, if I'm going to be with him, I can't go all day all night. No, you will not have that brain nor will she, your heart will be perfect.
Perfect meaning complete. Today we have defects you know, with our skin sometimes with our hearts, we have not only physical but even spiritual defect, they nothing like that perfect complete. Imagine the description of the size of a person of Jannah see tuna there are 16 What is it, there are two opinions. It's either a meter or a foot. Because they say if it is a foot, it is calculated from your elbow going up. So at the time of Adam alayhis salam, if a person was that tall anyway, that distance would be much more so let's say a meter, if it is a meter, it is 60 meters tall me and you look at the buildings in town. So it'll be taller than that. And if it is a foot then it's 18
meters. So one of the two still some of us are barely two meters, we between one and two meters imagine the size. So what type of a body will you have complete? Do you know there will be no excretion only secretion? secretion means that which is beneficial and excretion is that which is a waste? no waste coming out. If you swept the center of it is better than musk. We walked into the studio Mashallah could you smell the bamboo? Tonight we might speak of the bamboo of gentlemen.
We already spoke of a scent that can be smelled 50 years down the line, something came to my mind. Let me say before I forget, you know the whole of gentlemen, the scent of one of these girls see the youngsters already smiling he started waiting for this. The scent of the whole It is said that if one hole was flushed into the dunya, the entire Delia would have smelled the hole, the center of the whole world would change just by a flash of one of the holes. Imagine what type of a sink This must be. Today people are looking for an ether smell that lingers, why they say when I leave here, people must know that I was there. They say they're
amazing. Imagine if you just had to drive by with your car and people knew this car fast. And they sitting one kilometer away. That wouldn't be but this will happen in gentlemen where from a distance you can smell Jenna itself. We already spoke about 50 years away Subhan Allah so the brain you will have complete. This is why you won't understand how can I get the same wife or the same husband? People are saying I'm working Allah for Jenna I haven't missed it. Allah give me something good. You know, people, their minds are so small and weak that we look at it in that direction. No way you will see what will happen. Allah will grant you perfection what you want Subhana Allah
there is a description of the spouse. And I'm just jumping a bit because I've realized it's a long topic and if I don't say things that come to my mind right now, we may slip up a little bit later. I've been given two hours to speak I don't know what you were told.
But at the same time,
you will look at
your spouse, whatever you are thinking of at the time in terms of description, shall be the description and if it is changing whilst you
Looking it will change whilst you're looking to show this way that way this complexion that this type here the other type of smell that smell this clothing that
somehow this jewelry that jewelry, this movement that movement, this shape that shaped little bit this way a little bit that way as you think you do doo doo doo doo doo doo doo it's all changing.
This is only to put it close to your mind and you know what you will be looked at similarly by your spouse with their own mind control. Today we have eye control on the ps4. You know what that means you look in the screen says I recognize your eye.
We will have mind control, let the s5 come out, it will never compete. No ways. It is something interesting imagine and one extra point that is valid for all of us to try and look at how mind boggling it is. If you would like to look like something you will look like that to yourself but the person perceiving you will look at you how they want to see you Subhanallah and if you don't want to see someone they won't be seen and if you want to see them they will appear as you're thinking it's happening to Allah and Allah describes some of you know today you have an outing this camping, they put up a tent somewhere out there, and they say Don't worry, this is you know, proof, what do they
call it heat proof, proper thermal, and you don't worry it's still you freezing in it and you say hey, this is we hear in the eastern Transvaal and it's so cold and you guys were saying this tent is like this. And like that there. You have a tent 80 meters high made of what and jewelry one on top of the other. Such if you want to look through it, you can see through it, if you don't want to look through it, it covers you so panela amazing, something that is mind boggling.
And you know, the books in general will be gold and silver, but not the golden silver of this dunya gold so pure that it appears to be glass, that's the description, silver so pure that it appears to be glass with a different tint.
And the feel of it will be so soft that if you had to press it or touch it, it would be like butter, imagine still it's building is very high. Try and build a building with butter won't work even in our winter.
These are just some of the mind boggling things. So this is why you see you will see let's move a little bit further. Allah subhanho wa Taala says to us, and he's made it very, very clear. And we've heard the verses of Surah Rahman, I know a lot of us would understand if I be a
man to get Viva, which is one of the favorites of your Lord, do you deny all mankind and jinn kind? But what about the verses intertwined between all those? We don't know them. We don't know the meanings of a lot of them. Go back to night and each other you read because as it is, you'll just be looking at the ceiling all night tonight. And you'll be just wishing Subhan Allah. So you'd rather open that book and start seeing again, shall Allah Subhana Allah bless us.
In the verses we heard that Allah has prepared something amazing for us something amazing. I was speaking to an atheist some time back on an aircraft.
And he told me, you guys believe in paradise? I said, Yes. He said, there's nothing like that.
I said, What guarantee do you have? He said, Look, you live, you die. So just enjoy your paradise here. And immediately it struck a chord, I thought of a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, where he describes our paradise being the one in the hereafter. And this place is full of restrictions for us, and those who don't want to hold those restrictions for them. It's a paradise.
So I told him, Look,
what do you worship? And we got to the conclusion that he worships his brain. I said, Okay, you worship your brain, according to your brain. If I am right,
what happens? And if you are right, what happens? If I am right? You go to hell. And if you are right, I join you wherever you go in
common sense. So I'm either working for something, or for something, which means whatever I'm doing, I'm still going to get to either paradise or to wherever you're going, so I lost nothing. But if I am right, then you're not going to come to paradise. And if you are out, then you're going to still go over your grave. So do you see the probability from a brain point of view? He looked at me says you're not cracker.
That's the what Nutcracker means your brain is now correct. That's what it means. May Allah protect us really. So common logic will tell you you're a fool. If you think you're going to die and you're not going to go somewhere. I want to tell you when you are dreaming, and I am dreaming, do you know what happens? You dream of the best things and sometimes you dream of the worst things. If you are having a nightmare. The person right next to you. Can they tell that you burning in fire? They can't. He must be somewhere in general. You know, he must be somewhere
in Paradise, something good happening to him really nice happening to him. Like the one man says he was dreaming, and someone was trying to pay him, and they were paying him 50,000 and he says, No, I need 100,000 and why is they arguing and debating the man next to him woke him up? Because he said, No, I want 100,000 this man says no 50,000 Take it or leave it. So when he woke up, he said, Why did you wake me up? I was about to get 100,000 then he quickly closed his eyes. He said, Okay, I'll settle for the 50
It doesn't work that way. It doesn't work that way. You are dreaming. When you wake up, the dream is over. You are in the real life. You cannot close your eyes and going ask for the 50,000 similarly, when you die, you will wake up into the real life, you will never be able to come back and ask for the 50,000
You're such that did not come here.
There you won't be able to do it. There are billions of people in their graves hoping and wishing they could come back for one sagitta we are sitting here alive now like
never lose hope in the mercy of Allah, but never miss a single Salah. You want paradise? Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah, the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says it very clearly. He says this commodity of a law is not cheap, it's expensive. Today, you want to buy a Rolls Royce and Bentley, you think they're going to give it to you for free? Never, you're going to pay a very high price for it very high. so high that if someone were to scratch it with a screwdriver, you would probably pay with one just to repair that.
It doesn't come just free. You need the man that value is so high that because of law,
Allah, Allah can grant you paradise.
That statement, you utter it with sick with truthfulness, you work towards it, you try your best. You will get your pages your pages you will receive May Allah grant us our pages in our right hand. And everything will be written. The Hadith says the man who
is still foreign kathira give good news. You know, Toba would actually be translated also as a place in paradise. So it would mean also give news of Paradise to he in whose pages or on whose pages lots of is still very scattered. So you see one page there's 2030 STL files here. Another page another 2030. And what does STL farming? Oh Allah I asked you forgiveness? What will happen if every page of yours has ecfr on it? What do you think the photo Rahim is going to do to you?
know Allah Subhana Allah to Allah blesses. You want to look at Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam don't just look at him as an OB. He is an example to follow. He is an OB and rasuna and the best of creation, the last of prophets.
And Allah has sent him so that we can follow his example completely. So if you are trying your best to follow that example, will learn you will be recognized and picked up, picked out and you know what you will be granted the shafa and intercession of the same Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam because he has the loftiest rank on that day. He can intercede on your behalf in mind, but the condition is he needs to be able to recognize me and you. There is a narration where he says do not disgrace me when on the Day of Judgment you come and I say Allahu
Allah this person is from me and my alma
and you find he says
cola Hema Bara Julio, Jonah, Allah copy him. You don't know Don't you know what they did? After you they kept on turning away. There is an embarrassment Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam saying this is from my alma and then we are exposed to say this was just a show. Not not from the moment he was just pretending inside something outside something else. We call it a Kohaku. mela protect us bamboo. We don't want it to be that. So this is why I work hard. Then we earn and what we earn Allah subhanho wa Taala has explained very clearly to us. He says
call upon a Kumar Botha. What
do you think that we have created you in vain without purpose and that you are not going to return to us you die, you are going to allow no return. This is why the oppressor The one who has wronged himself the one who is doomed. What will he say as soon as he sees medical note. Once his death comes? He says Robin j ronita. Lee
FEMA doc can. He says oh my God, let me go back. It's like somebody
closing his eyes and saying give me the 50 grand, exactly the same or should I say even a higher example where you are now in the eternal life, the real life no more death, death came once it's over. Now you are alive. Whatever happened in the dunya was a deception. This is why Allah says
to dunia in
indeed the life in this world is just an amusement and a pastime, the real eternal life
and this is why anything I said it this afternoon and I'm repeating it anything me or you find were working towards in terms of the material life of this dunya it can never be from anywhere but the same Earth What do you like in this world? Think about it in your mind. You like a car you like a watch you like a phone we like a woman for example, or a man for example, if you're a woman, perhaps you might like an aircraft a house What else? Everything you think of as come from the earth including us. We are from the soil.
soil, the leather in your Bugatti soil. What else the outside mind underneath. We have never benefited from anything outside our atmosphere not yet. We don't even know what it's all about. So Allah says and you're getting excited, you're getting excited man. You don't even know what's waiting for you we just describing this. But
Lisa Baraka Marianna
news is not equivalent to see we've heard about it but we want to see we want to get there. So how the law and depending on how much yaqeen you have, that is how much you will be preparing for paradise. Look at the Sahaba
They lived they believe they looked at they saw they understood the Hadith
of the Allahu anhu and the others they say oh messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when you speak to us, it's as though Jenna and Jan lamb is right in front of us. That's how powerful they have been was Allah grant us even a fraction of that?
And the beauty that makes me cry, and it should make our hair stand they were told you from gentlemen. You are from gentlemen, you are from gentlemen. So many were given the glad tidings we know of the Shara Shara the 10 who are given the news one shot that you are from general with names what happened Imagine if someone had to tell you think about it for one minute you our agenda t It's over. It's already written decreed this time Dan, what would happen to me and you
when they gave their lives after that, do you know that they were martyred after they were told you're from Paradise to Panama look at this we would sit back and relax and say you know what?
In fact, let me not even go there. Now law protect us. I wonder.
This is what makes us imagine Ababa Casa de la and take a look. Imagine below and if
he was being looked and lashed. You know what he was told? Yeah. I have heard your footsteps in paradise. He went up to paradise in mirage. He was shown how because it exists right now. And he was shown heaven and he told Bella lipner Ah, I saw I heard your footsteps in paradise. Did that make him arrogant in any way he became even more humble Subhan Allah, he was calling out for Salah. Amazing.
Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanho wa Taala. grant us the goodness.
So in Jannah, Allah says v ha, Martha stay
in it. There is a you will have what ever you desire. belong to you. Whatever your soul desires, it's yours. And whatever your eyes find the delicious belongs to you.
You see you want it's yours. Don't worry, it is yours. It's yours.
You desire. It's yours.
And you will dwell there in forever and ever. No sickness.
No aging, we will all be at the age of 33 superb age. You don't get old. You don't become a child. No sickness. No worry. As I said no excretion, only goodness. Do you know what else you will never be hungry or thirsty?
When you eat and drink, it will continue going in, in a manner that you're enjoying it. beyond our imagination today will full to the brim. They can show you a cheese cake which looks so beautiful you look away, I hope you look away.
But believe me, bring jobs that are cooked at home, when you are hungry are far more valuable than a cheese cake presented to you when you are totally fooled.
Look at the smiles you have the way I got that example from its effect.
In this case, you are not described as a hungry nor you described as food. You are in some some amazing form or condition where you can eat you can have it doesn't fill you but you enjoy because the last this year we've made it for your amusement and enjoyment and not fake, it's a reality.
So what will be the temperature in Paradise, neither hot nor cold, you don't have to sweat and you don't have to worry. And if there is perspiration it is for for a few purposes. One of them according to some narrations that the digestion of the food would actually be in the form of a cent that will come off the ledger of beautiful things. Imagine with us you perspire a bit we need to go and think of what type of underarm you're going to buy. Allah protect us they nothing of that nature.
Your hair will be as you like it. Your complexion as you want your eyes as you wish. And the onlooker your spouse will see you as they wish Allahu Akbar. Amazing. It's mind boggling. Something you can't describe. It's like me telling you here's an orange and you say no, it's a banana.
But this is another juicy, no, it's a banana. I don't know what you're seeing. But this is what I am seeing something of that nature, perhaps far more mind boggling.
May Allah grant us.
So Allah says,
you will be dwelling very in forever and ever. So much so that it is reported that when a man is with the hope
he will be with her for 70,000 years, 70,000 years before he even realizes that he's with Subhan Allah.
It's mind boggling. You don't even understand what was just said now. I mean, today, you know, you look at someone for a few seconds, and you know that, hey, I'm here.
But you 70,000 years
when the Hadith speaks of the trees of Paradise, it speaks of a tree that has shade that a person would be traveling.
A rider would be traveling for 100 years, and would still be in the shade of the tree.
in the shade of the tree. Why? You know why? Let's think for a moment. because firstly, it's huge. Yes, we do know that. It's beautiful. We know that you will be admiring it. We know that. But there is no time. That's why. Because there's no limit. So what if I'm there for 70,000 years? Because how much is remaining? The answer is that's not an applicable question.
It's not applicable.
Because it's mind boggling. This is why when people say it's 40 years from here today, it's so mind boggling because for us you're gonna age by the time I'll get tired walking from here to there. No, who said you need to walk from here today, you can think about being on the other side of new day. Amazing. Think of something it's yours. So now there is a narration which says whoever has drunk alcohol in this world will not have it in the
So someone might say but moments ago you said whatever you think of. So the scholars have spoken. They say there is no contradiction there. The best of the opinions is it won't even come to your mind and you won't even realize you're missing something amazing. You know the Quran describes the rivers of Jenna. And the Quran says fee has
one home in summary, let me share even one
only four of these rivers have been described.
One with the water. Another narration says
water that is constantly flowing, pure,
palatable that which is beautiful to taste the water
As you are thinking of it it comes up and it's there you already drinking How did it come between here and there so many different ways. But it's mind control. Remember that the perfect mind? Secondly,
mood that doesn't go bad beautiful milk. Imagine the type of milk not the milk that you get here from cows. No. Some milk that is described the same name but something else. Beautiful, it doesn't get stale. It doesn't turn into
the sour milk, as we would call it.
And it doesn't turn into the yogurts and what have you.
Something's coming to my mind what if you want sour milk? Christian? What if you want the yogurt? Well, to be honest, if you think of it at that time, you'll have it you know, someone asked me a question.
Will we have tea in general?
This was in the UK for your information. So I said look, there are many answers he says some alama say no and some say yes so what do you have to say? I said you just fishing you know you just going shopping to look firstly work for it. Once you get to paradise, you know the answer.
Then he says no, come on, be reasonable. I said okay, let's be reasonable. If you go and when you are there you still think of it if your mind if your mind still wants you to think of it Allah will provide but I don't think your mind is going to think of the tea here. Like my son. He was telling me I want to buy a Bugatti. Bugatti is one of those fast cars. I said we can't afford that car. He says okay, so in general inshallah we'll get it. I said, Son, that will be the worst thing in general. So don't even ask for that. It's the worst thing in paradise because it's the dunya it's the dead it's not fit to enter Paradise, not at all. Whatever you know, it's not worth going there.
It will not be there in the sense that in the same form, no, perhaps the name and something much more elegant, much more elite much more extravagant, so to speak and a day there. The term extravagance will not exist because everything is yours.
Here we were not allowed to wait gold and silver. Gold sorry for men golden, hairy, hairy result. Allah says there that will be your clothing gold, you can have it and like we said like butter because someone thinks How can I have a gold jacket? jacket I'll have to be like, you know, strong person who walks with this thing here. It's gonna be so heavy. No, it's a different type of a thing. It's something far more perfect than the gold we know here. Something amazing. So Allah says if you stayed away from things here, we grant it to you then. This is why my brothers and sisters, the dirty smelly sins we engage in are not worth it. You are wearing jewelry as a man remove it. We want
to wear it in the area.
You have made mistakes engaging Toba lower, provide Subhanallah it's not worth it. Life is too short. You know, I have sat and spoken to older people and ask them, can you tell us about your life? Do you know what they say? They say well, I it's gone past like a week, two weeks. I remember even the young days when I was in school now I'm sitting on my deathbed. That's what they will tell you. So they will also say sometimes I'm scared and I'm worried about the sins I have committed. What's going to happen to me now? Well, that is information for the young. When you are young, listen to those who are telling you I'm worried. And then think to yourself, do I want to be a
person who does not learn by example, but who wants to learn through their own errors and mistakes might be too late. And as for the elderly or those who have already engaged in something, don't lose hope attack them become
a person who repents properly from a sin is equivalent to one who has not committed a sin at all.
So this is why we have the description of such a beautiful place where Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about
the colors, the colors of Paradise, what are the colors, they will be millions of colors. So much show that that you've never ever seen these colors. Today we've only seen the spectrum they will tell you you know the spectrum has x amount of colors in it. And when you combine a few you get this we are going to see colors that we've never seen. We're going to hear sounds we've never heard it is reported that the trees of Jannah will have leaves that are so thin and so perfect. And they are of gold and silver, the bark of the tree will be made of gold, some of silver, some of ivory and so on. And you will have different things have different types of jewelry and so on. This is described to
us because this would be considered as valuable, but it will be much better than that. So when the wind will blow it will create a sound that will be so soothing, more soothing than any sound that we've heard in the Union.
May Allah protect our ears from the dirty music of this world?
You ready to give it up? If the answer is yes, Allah will give you something else in its place that you will never regret. It's not difficult to throw your bad habit tonight. Then you are kicked out and returned. What do you get?
the description of one of the last people who will inter gender why I really love these narrations there are several narrations but all in the same direction. Why I love these durations. I always tell myself Yeah, Allah, it will either be me or I will be better than that common sense, isn't it? Because we either the West person who's existing but inshallah we have the Shahada on our tongue. So there's hope.
Or we are better than the West, the West will be someone else say we are the West. This is what happens. Say it's me say it's you may Allah say if God has made you make us better than that. So after he serves his sentence, he comes out and one Malaysian says, you know, when a person was already roasted in jahannam, and so on, when they come out after serving their sentence, this skin needs to be renewed, they are dipped into some pond, and suddenly they have this rejuvenated complete body and so on. So it is reported that and I'm bringing together a few narrations. This man, he will be so happy that he's released from Johanna and he will stay there for a while and you
know, he loves gained his body and so on. And that's all he wanted nothing more. I'm out finished. Not yet in general. He's not yet there.
he will see.
Or he will say Allah subhanho wa Taala get me closer to general because he can get the sense. And there's certain things happening. And he is granted. No, he is asked by Allah subhanho wa Taala if I give you your wish, would you want anything else? He says no, never ever. Never I won't want anything else was as you're granted your wish. So he's given that and he's grown closer.
And there is one narration which makes mention of a tree he sees a tree and he says yeah, Allah, you know what just put me under the shade of that tree. And he's given that and he says, I've never asked for anything after that. While later he asks note, take me outside by the door of or take me closer to gentleman and he's taken closer. I'll never want anything after that analysis. But didn't you promise you won't want anything he says Yeah, but you know, through your asthma, you give it to me. And the main point being raised here is the law of Allah, the mercy of Allah is what will drive me and you to paradise. Our deeds can do nothing.
Our deeds can only call on the mercy of Allah. When you trying hard, you call it on the mercy of Allah. You gotta for Salah you calling on the mercy of Allah. But let's be honest, a lot of us we reading salah and we standing and our concentration is not there. Let's be honest. So has that Salah really been of value, you may have fulfilled your father. But it's the mercy of Allah that will accept it right or wrong. The other day I was in the machine, my brothers, I have to make mention of this. I was in the machine let's not name the machine. And I was standing as an Imam.
Right behind me there was someone whose phone started ringing. And he had the squeaky sound of one of the bollywood hindi actresses who were singing a love song, which I could understand.
In the house of Allah, and this brother. He probably thought if I made a switch of my phone, my Salah is going to break so he didn't switch it off. I had half a mine of breaking the salah and telling him what you're doing. But the Rama movement, you know, to respect the movement, I said, You know what, he might have another deed that might be better than mine. I'm going to embarrass the man. The mere fact that it rang is supposed to be a big enough embarrassment. The point being raised is when that happens. Who can concentrate One is we can't concentrate but the other when your phone rings, you might be penalized for taking away concentration from people who can concentrate. If you
weren't there. That's the point you need to consider. There are some people who concentrate 85 90% but you forced them to take away the concentration Why? You brought in some Bollywood squeaky voice you know Allah protect us I don't even know what people find beautiful in that.
This is why consider this. Your concentration is one thing Why are you forcing other people to lose their concentration? They are plugged in with Allah mean they are plugged in with Allah and what are you doing? You are busy distracting them? No, no, no listen to the song of mine. This is why I say and I challenge you tonight everyone. I challenge you and I challenge you the biggest challenge. Change your ringtone to assume that even if it means in a place where you will be embarrassed, at least what ran will not be as embarrassing. I hope you understand what we say. You have a simple ringtone and evag in Salah. Yes
People might be irritated but when you have a dirty song and music that's blasting in the house of Allah, we are worried about the connotations. We are worried about what is to come, what else is going to be be surrounding the punishment of what has happened.
And when we make Toba, we say Allah forgive me my phone rang in the masjid. We didn't even think Yeah, Allah forgive me for taking the concentration away from 20 Mussolini's today that didn't even come to our mind.
This is why I challenge you, my brothers and sisters,
that ringtone of yours make it respectful for the sake of Allah, you want your paradise, there it is, who knows? Allah looks at one liberty. And when he loves that small deed of yours, perhaps he can grant you paradise to say my worship. I don't want to see anything else. I saw how tough it was for you to dunk that hijab and niqab in the midst of the people who are looking at you as a whatever, and they call you so many names, but you were patient because of me. I don't want to look at anything else that one deed is enough, go to Paradise.
It can happen one day, this is why when you're finding it tough to do one thing. Remember the Hadith says gentlemen,
you will enter it by engaging in those things for the sake of Allah which require a great effort to engage in sacrifice.
Through sacrifice, you uncover the limb, you enter
you're not ready to sacrifice. What's the big deal there are others enjoy. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says they are similar to animals may Allah protect us because they don't understand that there is a purpose you're created for. It's not for nothing.
When Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about something very interesting. They will be nothing prohibited in paradise. How do you like that? Nothing has been the term haram gone out. It's finished. Because those rules and regulations you already followed them for 6070 years now for eternity normal everything you want to do yours You say you dictate the pace What is it you know, the one youngster tells me So you mean all the women I said the law Up yours? Don't worry, relax. They all yours in this world? You have one rose? You can't have the whole garden? Leave other roses for others. inshallah. You're lucky you might have another one.
But to be honest with you, in the app here, what ever you're thinking of you come across yours. Imagine mind boggling, isn't it? Now you can look at the ceiling tonight and start making your plans. But a loser is the one who just wishes without working towards it. That's the loser she found makes us a yes gentleman. You know we are moving in. But what did you do? Did you get up for Salatin come on you're gonna blanket made in China. You can't even you know, leave that for a moment. Allah protect us. And then we sing Ivan paradise.
Come on, you can leave that come for Salah MD the house of Allah. It's a few more years left. You know what this might be your last Salah you've ever read, we might die just now any one of us all of us anything can go wrong or can go right.
And some of us sometimes we probably didn't even read it properly May Allah forgive us may forgive our shortcomings.
Nothing similar to paradise, the light will be
a glare and a glaze that will be so soothing and so fulfilling.
And at the same time, the castles that are owned will be having bricks made of gold and silver. And like I said that gold and silver are so pure that it appears as glass if you'd like to see through it you will be able to when you look beneath that the Quran says the newbies that are flowing we were speaking of honey
we mentioned water and milk look at how massive gentlemen is we have indeed gone to the honey Subhanallah not talking of the honey I'm talking of the honey
but even those will be yours
this running so pure so soothing to look at the texture of which is determined by your mind the taste of which is determined by your mind again what you want you look at it and suddenly you feel like having it you feel it in your mouth and you know where you see it beneath you that Jerry mean tacky Helen hmm these gardens are flowing beneath so I'm looking down it's my castle you know the the description of the walkway to the paradise is such a to your garden a person's garden, Jen, Neptune means a garden you will have I will have my agenda, your agenda everyone's agenda in a big place known as gender we will all have our positions and gender has ranks it's reported it as 100
grams, you know the highest for the highest obviously and the lowest for the lowest but each one inshallah will be fulfilled completely. Someone might say, well, if I'm in Jelena and I want anything and everything What if I want to be on a higher end?
Allah can remove the code of wanting to be on a higher rank from you. So
You won't even feel you're missing out on anything like I spoke about alcohol moments ago. It's just a code that's removed. So you don't even your mind doesn't even go in that direction out of the perfection of that particular mind. So, the walkway the pathway, one brick of gold and one of silver, one of gold, one of silver, amazing. And as you go into your own castle, even the floor, all sorts of different types of jewelry of our highest form, and you look down you want to see through you can see
Rufus of pure fruit juices, you know the term wines used.
Even in the Bible, the term wine is used. It does not refer to an intoxicating drink. It refers to fruit juice.
But sadly, people have changed the wording over the time. And therefore they say the wine in the Bible when they say Jesus drank wine May peace be upon him. He didn't, but he didn't drink the wine we know of today. But he drank pure fruit juice. That's what he drank. Not the intoxicating wine, but the term used his wines. So that in general the wines juices pure, no intoxication in it as described in the Quran. No detoxication.
And brethren will sit you want to meet someone you meet them, you sitting next to each other. And you know what, you love one another. You have no hatred, you have no ill feeling all that qualities of the dunya they are left behind here, fight the bad qualities, you will find it easier to enter Paradise.
And this is why if someone were to ask you this is a question you need to ask yourself. You know we make do ask sometimes we are weak men in some
enemies of mine destroy him. And he's a brother who reads Fletcher with you every morning.
It happens. Some people, someone took you for a ride, say 10,000 friends. So you say Allah destroy him, his family, his children, his offspring for seven generations. 10 grand big deal. Come on man. 10,000 you destroyed seven generations.
It's a time of acceptance Yala granting business, he can make a million give me 10,000.
That's a better job.
So if you try a good two hour for your brothers, who may have wronged you, perhaps it will work for you. You know why the angels say Allah give him similar to what he's asking. So when you have an enemy of your gender in the dunya, you know, we got our issues. But yeah, let him be my neighbor in paradise.
If the melodica have to say, Allah grant him something similar, he will be your neighbor in Paris. Maybe you went to Ghana because you made it out for him. He got it through your job, you have to be there before him. Amazing. Think about this, we should not be selfish. And this is why if someone told you you get general condition, that your worst enemy will be your neighbor. It's a cheap deal. Believe me, it's worth it because then there's no hatred, there's no enmity and so on and so forth. This is what we are speaking about.
Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the fruit of Jenna how it will be, you know, the seedless the pipped fruit as we would call it, tasting, different looking similar. So having similar names perhaps as some of the names we are used to, but the taste is different, the look is different. The trees will be so big and huge. When you are thinking of trying to get to this fruit. It actually comes right to you like this. It's right there. If you want to pick it you can pick it if you don't want it picks out itself and comes to you Subhanallah and you may have servants who may pick it for you depending on what you want. Amazing.
The order is according to what you're thinking of. And halfway you having a fruit and you thinking of a different tastes. The same one will change its taste to whatever you're thinking of.
That is a law that is gender. Allah says this is not difficult for us. This is nothing. We have created agenda for you. Oh man, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us gender.
When Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about some of the drinks he named some of the drinks there is a spring known as tasneem agenda. Some say it's a type of a drink. Some say it's a spring agenda. The terms in Japan is used some say it's a gingery drink and some say no, it's just a drink of Jenna. But it's mentioned in the Quran. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of it cafo as well. These are some of the words that are used in the Quran to describe what we are going to be getting in general. The utensils will be such made of gold and silver utensils that give you that greatness because they Subhanallah like we said nothing is haram. You can be happy you have every reason to be proud
because you worked hard.
for 6070 years
sounds easy. It's a lifetime in this dunya so
min. in Paradise, we already spoke about
not the palace that didn't
and spoke about how the pearls,
hollow pearls stacked up one on top of the other, going 60 miles up according to some narrations
for you, you can see through it if you want. And if you don't want, it covers you
people will be glowing more than the glowing of the moon
and even more than the shine of the sun, but the sun will never be seen in general. The sun does not qualify to go to Paradise su n not your son, the son, may Allah join us with our children. You try and work hard on your children by the will of Allah. If they follow you in that Eman inshallah he will join you unite you with him in gentlemen. You work hard on your children. memorize the Quran serve the deen, Allah may grant him the power to intercede for 10 people from amongst the family
who was supposed to go to Jana. So work hard on your children. And this is why the children who might be listening in to us, when your parents are working hard on you. It's not that they hate you. They love you so much. They want you to achieve ranks higher than days. Allah grant us awesome rank.
So the sun we won't see.
But there will be light, the light will come from all sorts of angles, because everything is shining, the people are shining. And we haven't yet got to the whole thought about it. I said when the first person humans will start speaking about the whole love.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has prepared all this for us. And this is why the whole of Jenna
you know, musala is salatu salam asked a question about the last person who will enter Paradise. And I was saying that he will be from this stage to that stage until he is at a stage where Allah tells him but you asked for them. And you said that was the last thing. He says yeah, Allah Just let me get into paradise. Just let me get him through your mercy. I just want to get in even if it's right here, you know, just him. And he will think to himself this men that you know, gender is already full. Because all the people of Jenga dam the last man waiting
by gender will not be full. Allah says,
Would you like it?
If I were to give you everything you wished for?
Whatever the dunya had completely all for you. And everything you wish. He said yes. Yeah, Allah, I'll be happy. What if I gave you double, he says, I'll be happy Allah, which means he's already happy with the first one. Second one, he says, I'll be happy. What if I give it to you five times he says, I'll be happy Allah, He says, my worship intergender through my mercy, and I will give you whatever you wish for multiplied by 10 for you only,
if that is the condition of the last one to go in.
What about those who are VIPs on a higher level.
This is why we say do not be extravagant in this dunya For indeed there will come a time when you will have so much it will all be yours. Think of it, it's just yours, yours and yours. And everybody else who's there will have whatever they want. So there's no way that you can say I'm wasting or I need to be charitable, they have it as well, and they have better or they have whatever they wish for.
And this is why when the who is being made mention of
it is reported in one duration that she herself. The maiden herself will say, I am from amongst those mentioned in the verse where Allah told you follow.
The person will not know the soul will not know
what Allah has kept for them in terms of the coolness of their eyes, that which will cool your eyes you see whatever you want there. So the hood is telling you, I'm part of them. Allah promised you you're going to see something, this is it. It's come to you in the form of so many things. I'm one of it. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed us in so many ways. This person is reported when he enters he will see a light, such a big light, and he's going to think this is Allah just for a split moment because he's never seen such a
Light. And he will be told immediately I am a gatekeeper from amongst the gatekeepers of Jenna.
I am at your service that was just an angel.
And then he is directed towards his garden. Remember, it's either me or I will have better than that. So either one of us will have better than that. So this is why it's good to mention this. And then when he when he shown the door bigger than the first door he saw, and he'll be told this is the entrance of your own garden, and it will fling open, it will have been open waiting for him like a VIP. And as he's going in, he sees a bigger life and the first one, and he thinks for a split moment, if that wasn't enough, perhaps and immediately our voice is heard. I am the gatekeeper of your door at your service, anything you'd like me to do.
la vaca May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us
with the acceptance on that particular day. So they are often
wherever your eye sees all of it is yours, whatever you see is yours. Anything comes in front of you yours Subhana Allah, one might say what if I want to meet people? Well, they will come and meet you.
And then they will leave.
Now let's get to the main part we've been waiting for all evening.
The whole of Jenna are described as the most beautiful of the creation of Allah
been created as a special treat for those who have gone into gender.
it is something worth noting that the condition of the heart and the mind at that time will be absolutely perfect. Where there is no jealousy. Today's women jealous. You know you want to talk about polygamy just talk about it. You see what happens? speak about just open your mouth, or associate with someone who is polygamous check what happens at home. Don't like your friends. I don't like your friends already threatened. Imagine why. Because the mind and the heart is not is not the perfect one. It's a human mind and a heart. It has jealousy in it. It has innate qualities that will not be there in general. So for women to think now that how can you have so many Hoon?
It's because they are thinking with the mind. That is not going to be the mind day. So someone was telling me or asking me what if I want my husband all for myself? You know what I said? Now you can guess I said if you get to paradise and ease that for crosses you, Allah has promised you you get what you want. So then you can talk to Allah not to me.
Because why must we start debating with the mind that you have right now we'll never understand what Allah has prepared. Don't debate get there. And if you still thinking of it, just go with the verse of the Quran. If you still think of it, you can ask Allah but like I said, I don't think it's even going to cross your mind. Because gentlemen, too many things too much and Allah spoiled everyone just listen to this description.
So Allah has described so many things.
The fact and here we are going to be speaking because I'll try and wear it as respectfully as possible. But it's described in the plan and it's allows description and it is something that makes us look forward to it. The description of the intimacy with these rules described
and the size of the hole described the chest describe as perfect the shape as you wish. So halala so much so that the description goes right through
to what we would probably tell elasticity May Allah protect us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, may he beautify our women for us. And on top of that, they are virgins all the time.
The cheeks are described as rosy like a rose, but similar to an apple. How do you put the two together? Wait, get there have a peek. Then you say one day benoni we spoke about this Do you remember?
Now like September salam o Toba
and Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of
the eyes, the nose, the perfect shape, completely perfect the texture of the skin, the curves, the legs, such that you you can see through it.
Because of its beauty, because of its clarity, because of how clear it is, you can actually see right to the bone you can see the ivory and that bone also not made of the bone we have here it is also something else which is so amazing to look at it will probably take you a few years because one description says a man will look at his food for 500 years just looking and she'll say hey, you gotta stop they don't have a right also
500 years one young boy told me me not even five minutes.
Allah protect us, Allah grant us Jenna. Really.
And boys, you thinking about that? Allahu Akbar. Work hard to get there. Then we will talk. Work hard to get there we will talk May Allah subhanho wa Taala unite us in Paradise, just like he has united us in this house of His love. This is why we need to learn to love one another for the sake of Allah set aside our little differences our hearts must be with in love with each other. The reason is, there is a special place of no which will be placed in position and Allah subhanho wa Taala will have a corner call out where are those who love each other for my sake, let them come up on these topics. They will be granted a special rate. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from
amongst today a little issue small item like I say this man did this that man did that and we hate each other's guts. That is where the heart becomes very, very controlled by the devil. May Allah protect us. We need to get rid of that. Open your heart. One men that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam described him as a person who has done nothing, meaning he was already going to be in paradise. They went around to search his deeds, when donations is one of those who have actually spent some time with him. And he saw nothing extraordinary. This man went to sleep. This man didn't really get up even for that trip. He got up and he was dead but no extra deeds. So they finally ended up asking
him what's the deed, this is what we had. And he thought and he says, You know what, no extra special deeds. But every night, when I reclined look into my heart, remove or in feeling against any other fellow believe. Take it out, force it out. Take it out, find whatever excuse you want.
That is equality of paradise. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant it to us. So getting back the hay is described my sisters, you cover your hair properly according to the teachings of Allah, Allah gives you that hair in the akhirah such that you will hear about it in a few moments. This we still talking about the whole we talking about the maidens, special maidens created Subhana Allah for purposes of fulfilling the desires of those in Paradise, anything comes to your mind panela the hair describe the neck describe something more like you know porcelain, something more like if you looked at it, you'd probably think that and I'm thinking now with our brain, obviously there is something
else. But you know, you feel if you touch it, you might leave a spot there, you know Subhan Allah kiss the cheek, you probably leave a red mark for the rest of the day. You know, sometimes things like these cross your mind will be yours. Don't worry. So sha Allah, Allah make it easy for us. You look at the hair today, people get excited because Allah has given them nice hair. So what they do, they use that Pantene or head and shoulders. And after that this year, the scarf is slipping, man, it's slipping too much. And you know, it's slipping. So what happens? It slips and after that it's gone into the end then, and where are we in the market in the mall, and the hair is flashing for
everybody. That's not what we're supposed to be doing. We want to earn paradise. May Allah granted to us.
And this is why it is reported that those who lower their gaze, listen to this, those who lower their gaze, my brothers after you hear this, you look at it differently. Those who lower their gaze, bearing Allah in mind will be called out on that day to choose from whichever hood they want. Choose why we look down just for the sake of Allah and you know what looking down does for you. It gives you contentment in your home, because your wife is the most beautiful. I didn't look around trying to compare and compete a chip is better than my missus stuff it alone. But these statements come into the mind when your eyes wander everywhere. No, look down. Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from
amongst those who appreciate one another.
Men will never be satisfied in this dunya satisfaction comes in paradise. Nowhere else. Like we always say paradise would lose its value. If we were to have everything we wanted here. Why would then unlock a paradise? What would be the purpose? man says I got everything here everything, man. One day you're going to get sick. Then you're gonna say this one tablet I don't have and that is the tablet that can keep me alive and young.
You see? So this is why finally even if you think you've had everything else, this is something you
Realize at one stage you don't have you don't have any way to run away. Besides back to us la manager, our manager, amin k La La or LA no savior, no way of running away from you except back to you. You running from Allah way you go this way. That way everyone has their catches you Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant His goodness, those who want children, perhaps in the afternoon, It is reported that
the gestation period will be shortened to just a few moments, child will be born few moments. These are some of the narrations that describe how pure it will be the women of gender, no hate, no pains, no nefarious, like we said, No exclusion of any sorts, nothing.
All that Allah has purified us from you get to paradise and you see them
amazing. The voice of the whole will be such that you hear it and you don't want it to stop Subhan Allah
I see the bankers are looking at me like a in the dounia
may not finish the sentence.
You hear it and you don't want it to stop. Beautiful Subhan Allah, how many will you have? Good question.
That number Allah alone knows, he may give you one 220 to 72 more whatever he wants. And at the same time, you will want just that whatever you want, you get.
And like I said, How long do you spend with one? Well, we said a few moments ago time is irrelevant. Because no one can tell you you weren't here early. It's still very early.
Today you came late, you say but it's very early. The word late doesn't exist because time is not there. Then
we carry on
that who will never ever want anyone besides you finished the whole pasado
we heard the verse will not gaze at anyone besides you yours That's it, no gaze automatically. Yours for you wanting you to please you at your disposal discretion beckon call Say what you want yours belonging to you Subhana Allah know looking this way that we know nothing. And you you can look everywhere because everything is yours.
No lowering of gaze for you in the know. There is all yours. Amazing how it's described.
Then, every time you see the hole,
you will want to look at her constantly because as you're looking she's becoming more and more beautiful. More and more beautiful. So forget about the aging aspect which is non existent. But this is something amazing. As time is passing you are becoming a more good looking person. And so is the whole This is some description that is amazing. And this is why Allah subhanahu wa taala bless us even in this world. When we bless redress for our spouses, we should not be dressing for that one in this one. Because in the era, we would like to achieve what we've just heard about.
Then what will happen now the sisters need to listen very carefully.
As this man is busy, you know the smile is described flash of lightning meaning soothing lightning, not lightning, very scary from the dunion, but like a flash, that's a smile. Flash can be seen right on the other side, the scent we already spoke about. So hannula amazing.
There's still a lot that perhaps we've left out. But as this man is with this rule of his, he noticed a light far brighter, and you look up and he'll see another hole amazing.
And he sees that far more beautiful than the one is with far more beautiful. And he sees qualities, you know, physical features, the beauty, the look, the voice, the scent, whatever he sees far better. The hair, the eyes, you say what you want, the shape everything completely amazing. We've already just seen the most amazing, and as we thought it cannot get any better. Here comes something far better.
So who are you?
I am the person who was your wife in the dunya
Allahu Akbar. She could have had her stretch marks in the dunya. She could have tipped the scale such that she broke every scale in the house and she could have been
Having hair which perhaps was like this, or like that, and sometimes a little bit bald, may Allah protect our women. These are the trials and tribulations our women go through because of us mostly, sometimes we stress them, we depress them, we impregnate them, they give birth, because we did that. And after that, we don't want to look at them because we say, you know what I look at someone with a different shape. Allah says, You work hard, you bear suffer, you understand your loyalty and faithfulness. You understand my plan for a few years, that very woman that you're looking at will be more beautiful than any of those rules that are there, and you will see that you will recognize it,
and we will honor her. So she will say, the reason why I am more beautiful than these rules, because I read my Salah because I fasted for Allah because I protected myself for the sake of Allah, because I was charitable for the sake of Allah. And because I worship the law alone. Oh, my sister's You ready? La Casa? La kebab. Now who's going to be jealous of who? Where's the jealousy gone? Who's the best? It's always your wife. In the dunya you might be lying to say yeah, don't worry, my wife. Yeah. Do you love me the most is the most most test. We come up with the next st at the end. mostest that means I'm lying to you. Allah protect us, Allah save goddess.
There, you won't be lying. I hope she doesn't remind you to save him in the dunya you are telling me this. Allah protect us. I hope that doesn't happen.
So this is how Allah will honor our women, when they comes under hood,
who will be higher than the four of us who are made for men
and amongst the ranks of the wives of the human beings, they will be certain women. Listen to this, who will be granted amazing beauty with amazing qualities that which will really capture that which will really give the eyes and hearts and minds of the people of paradise. And she will tell you
when she is asked me What about you?
I am the one who protected myself. I lived in the dunya I worshipped Allah. I bought patience. I stayed away from prohibitions. I engaged in Toba, I gave my charities I worship the law alone. And I was never married in the dunya.
And I have chosen to be with you or you would have chosen to be with her. Amazing, amazing. Where's the jealousy?
You know, women must might be saying, you know we have sisters listening perhaps right now also, they might be saying no, no, no, no, no that I can't take. I can't take you know why you can't take it because right now the mind we thinking with is not in general yet. Let it get to general you'll have that perfect mind no hidden, no hatred in the heart. Nothing Subhan Allah and you will love whatever you see, because you will be how you want amazing. And you will have that attraction such that he would definitely be more attracted this direction. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, the difficulty is and I have to mention this, it's a red button.
What if one of the two spouses don't make it to gender?
Isn't that a sad question? Look at how it's knocked us out of what we were thinking.
What if one of the two spouses do not make it to Jenna? This is why I say we believe we are not atheists. We are not people who are who are not believers. We believe in Allah and His Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam we have hope and we are working hard. work as hard as you can. My brothers and sisters, we need to be there. We need to be there together.
It's a gift of Allah. So let's work as hard.
As hard as we can and engage in lots and lots of STL file. I will mention just a few more points. Here. Allah subhanho wa Taala
spoken about the verses that will be read
the verses that will be reminded
or the whole will remember or remind us of the verses. What's the verse one
Alhamdulillah he levy sadaqa nawada. All praise is due to Allah who has been truthful in the fulfillment of his promise.
That verse it's reported that it will be seen on either the hand or the arm of the hole in light, which means you just perceive the verse it will be a reminder to say wow, definitely All praise is due to Allah who fulfilled his promise to Africa.
What we've been promised, this is only a part of paradise. And then another verse
Alhamdulillah him maybe as a habit animal hasn't we thank Allah all praises due to Allah who has removed from our path that which is difficult.
There's no more difficulty there's no difficulty in gentlemen, you know in the dunya.
to sin you have to duck and dive, that's how Allah has plans. But to engage in something Hello, no ducking and diving, there is no sin, there's no document diving. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grand agenda. And the last thing I'd like to mention here, although there is a lot more to be mentioned, but I need to also consider the time and perhaps the listeners as well as those who are seated here.
The last thing I'd like to mention is the whole the term before was used, you know, as we entered here, could you smell the scent of the beautiful before perhaps it smelled like something from rasasi, maybe mejlis or barley or something of that nature. These are names that are really some good buffers that you might get in Mecca or Medina.
And I told him, I said you know what?
This smells like Jenna.
And I thought to myself, we're going to be speaking about it tonight. It's part of the notes that I prepared. This will be without fire
but the scent will come about as a smoke fireless how I don't know it scent will reach wherever you'd like it to reach it's yours. Where would you like it to eat throughout the entire agenda of yours it's reached and it's central continue changing according to how you want it to smell. I think from tonight we've understood that we need to get there we really need to work towards it. Now one thing that we need to know when we read our Salah
different people look at it differently. I want to highlight one little point
and this is a closing point in conclusion
today in the world when you want to buy a house and you can't afford it, I mean someone is describing to you a huge building with so many unsweet rooms you know and this and that and you say yes yes well why don't you buy it and you're thinking you know what, I've got 30 hands in my pocket because this guy talking to me. So if he says I can arrange for you some halaal credit perhaps you can rent out something and make it back and so on Sharia compliant proper. Now there are two types of Sharia compliant that which is just by name and that which is really Sharia compliant so you need to make sure so this the man says No papa, you pay me monthly. So what happens? You have hope. Now
you have the house, you make a payments. What happens Say for example, in this dunya if you haven't paid for one month, you penalized you haven't paid for another month you penalized again in whatever way and at some stage they might take that house and sell it you lost it.
Can I tell you I have a house I'd like to build in the era. There are many ways of doing it one heads is Mumbai Allah He Muskegon but Allah Allah in general, whoever for the sake of Allah builds a house not for name and fame or disunity or whatever, for the sake of Allah builds a Masjid. Allah will build for him a house in general. Now today sometimes I might not be able to afford the whole house. So I've given one brick two bricks, 100 grands, 5000 pounds whatever I could do you think Allah is gonna give you one brick and say right you know what you built? You use the brick Yes, your brick now carry on? No, the mercy of Allah will dictate inshallah, that you don't have a house,
because you contributed towards building one of us. But every time you read Salah, it's a payment towards your house.
You missed one payment, watch out, something's going to happen, then you must do three payments, watch out. You must read you must you better be careful that whole house might go. You see what we're saying now. So when you have to get up for pleasure, we sometimes would pay a debt to a bank that we own, which we might have got through high interest loans. We are more keen on paying that back then paying something in order to earn a house of Jannah which is everlasting and that payment is far easier. It's only telling you get a forfeiture. Read your Salah, fulfill your soccer fast in Ramadan, you do your Hajj properly and you abstain from prohibitions. There you are you pay for your
paradise. Is it too expensive?
Well for those who have the high Hema for those who are really concerned, and they are really keen on getting it, it's very cheap. They will not find it difficult because they are focused.
And for those who are not really focused, they attain is weak. It becomes very, very burdensome. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us Jenna, may he make us work good deeds whether it is to protect ourselves from john
Not to make ourselves into gender or solely for the love of Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala granted to us because we will fall into several categories, some people will work so that they can be saved from Johanna. Some people will work so that they can earn paradise. Some people will work solely for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala May we be from any one of those categories? And until we meet again, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us a meeting in gentlemen, my brothers and sisters May Allah unite us May Allah subhanho wa Taala bring us together Let's have a concern for one another. Let's have a love with one another and inshallah we will meet if not in this dunya
in sha Allah on that how alcocer with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah grant us a drink from that it may take us into paradise without reckoning. May He not disgrace us on that day we have done deeds that we are not proud about my brothers and sisters May Allah forgive us. May He grant us gentlemen
