Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was happy as mine, my beloved brothers and sisters,
every one of us once genital Fidelis, we want to enter Paradise, and we want it to be easy.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala has told us of several categories of people who will enter Jannah without reckoning, no reckoning, VIP, you arrive on the Day of Judgment before the accounts, there are certain categories who will be told come over, you can go through Subhan Allah wouldn't be it wouldn't it? Wouldn't it be interesting for us to know who these people are? So that we can try to be from among them. So, if we look at the Hadith, there are actually many categories. Some of them are after the hisab and some of them are before the hisa. So there is a hadith wherein the prophets Allah Salaam has said
that on the Day of Judgment, before the reckoning,
a caller will call and he will say saya Alamo jumbo
man Ola bill come. The people today are going to know who is of honor who is generous, who is truly generous and here it's referring to the generosity of Allah subhanho wa Taala in forgiving people,
then he will call for unity Manoj in the same color will call and he will say amen Medina can we have Medina ALLAH hafiz surah. Allah, where are those who used to praise Allah upon all conditions Be it difficult or easy?
For your kumanovo home Colleen, the Hadith says they will stand up and they will be few in number not so many.
And they will be told to enter Jannah without reckoning, no reckoning for you. Before we start taking reckoning you used to thank us upon all conditions. As a result we are giving you entry into general no reckoning SubhanAllah.
Now before I get to the next category, and I'm only going to talk of those two, let me dwell on this particular category because we can be from among those we need to try to be from among those in the mercy of Allah. When they say well whom Tallinn they are a few. You know, there have been trillions of people on earth, perhaps if they are a few million, it might be considered they are a few but we may be from among them, may Allah make us from among them, thank Allah upon all conditions, thank Allah upon all conditions. So if goodness comes to you, thank Allah, if something bad happens to you, thank Allah, people find that difficult. Sometimes you have a good deal.
And you're thinking a lie, it's a little bit easier. But when you have a tough day, and when you've suffered a loss, and when you've been through divorce, and when you've lost a child and when you've had an accident, and when you just simply cannot get married or you're having marital problems. Or, for example, you don't have children or you have struggled and suffered because of the loss of your parents and your siblings and your loved ones. And whoever else it may be on earth then to say Alhamdulillah is not so easy. Allah says if you still say Alhamdulillah and you look at those who are in a worse condition than you, you deserve Janna. Allah says we sent you on earth to test you.
When we test you and you sell hamdulillah this test I will manage it by the will of Allah, I will Ace it Subhan Allah that's the word they use. Sometimes by us, we're going to ace this you know, for the sake of Allah, we Ace things as well. We make sure that we thank Allah upon all conditions, and we will know that if you have made some money a day will come when you have to suffer a loss.
Take it in your stride, pick up the pieces work hard again. Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Allah Callaghan, I praise Allah upon all conditions. There is another Hadith the prophet SAW Selim, It is reported that he used to say Alhamdulillah Allah Cooley, hell, what are all the Billa him in Holly early now?
I praise Allah Praise be to Allah upon all conditions. And I seek the protection of Allah from the condition of the people who will be cast into hell fire. That's the only thing I'm worried about. cast into hell fire in this world. Look at what happened to Rasulullah saw Salaam they boycotted. He said Alhamdulillah
they didn't believe in him. He was concerned he may do out but he was thanking Allah.
In part if whatever happened, he still thanked Allah He lost his wife. He thanked Allah. He lost his children one by one. He thanked Allah it's not easy. You lose your child beloved to you, your father, your your mother, whoever
Beloved to your heart to say Alhamdulillah in Melilla Hema, aka Allahumma aka aka Lucia in India will be agilely masama indeed to Allah belongs whatever he gave me in the first place, it was always his, and for Him belongs whatever he took away, it was always his, he just gave me a time to be with whatever gift he gave and Alhamdulillah I'm thankful that he gave me you have a father who's been with you for 10 years, 15 years, thank Allah. Other people have had no father from the very beginning. They look at rasulillah salam, he was born, his father had already pre deceased that date.
It mustn't be a sense of our distress. We need to thank Allah, we need to go forth and praise Allah subhanho wa Taala This is why the prophets of Salaam tells us that on that day, part of the generosity of Allah subhanho wa Taala will be that he will call out those who used to thank him.
Now we ask again, Why will he called him out? What's the secret? The reason is they understood that everything comes from Allah and it's in Allah's control. The minute you understand that and live by it, you worship the law upon the highest degree.
The minute I realized a robber came a thief came I broke a bone that happened lost something tire burst car accident, a loss, whatever losses it may be, when you understand and realize Allah is in full control, you have no option but to say Alhamdulillah it depicts your top level of demand, highest level of demand. And living in a country like Medina. Allah Hafiz Salah, what the raw, those who prays the law upon days of ease and days of hardship, war, hunger, famine, fear, whatever it may be, just say Al Hamdulillah, thank Allah. Now, the Hadith of the Prophet, Allah teaches us also, that you must always look at those who have less than you.
That will be
so great a gift of Allah, that it will make it easy for you to actually thank Allah. That's what it is.
The problem today in this materialistic world, everyone looks at those above them and says, I'm going to get there. Don't worry, this guy made a million I'll show him I'll make 2 million.
It's okay to make it No problem. But don't have that aim such that I'm in competition with someone, I will do my best.
I will do my best. And I definitely will try to earn with the intention of spending in the cause of Allah. That's him. That's very important. How much are you going to spend in your life? Ask yourself a million a billion. How much are you going to spend? We sit today and we look at the League of a few people who've crossed the net worth of 100 billion and you start thinking to yourself, is it really worth it? The other day, they added the name. One day they subtract the name because they they count the cents and the dollars you've crossed by $1 they quickly put your name
Subhan Allah? Did it really earn you Jenna?
Was it really a matter of how much you're going to spend of that? You won't even spend one full billion
you won't even spend one full billion. How much do you want under 1,000,050 million? What are you going to do with it? Bill you're gonna spend it spend it in a good cause. Have people where you are helping good causes where you are helping assist here assist they give you a give, they look after your relatives and your family to begin with. That's what Allah subhanho wa Taala says, charity begins at home you start off with your relatives then the next then the next check who's poor who needs Who's this? Who's that? Give them give them and you know what? I mentioned it last week, I'm mentioning it this week. The professor Salaam tells us that Allah subhanho wa Taala says anfitriona
our Dharma onfi colleague, spend Oh son of Adam, I'll spend on you, Allahu Akbar.
If you want to increase you got to give it will increase. But if you want to increase and you keep it and you're counting it, it's not going to increase inflation will eat it something else will eat it loss will eat it whatever else. You can't just counting you have to take a few risks in life that are halaal you have to sometimes do something to the best of your ability This is going to bring me a profit you might enter it and it may not useless Al Hamdulillah add that slide look I'm still living I'm surviving I'm eating we're all Okay, we've got food if need be to downgrade your life. Do not be ashamed to downgrade downgrade no problem. You don't have to eat, you know, top expensive
food every day. Some of the healthiest people are those who eat the cheapest food in terms of money, but it's the healthiest food in terms of nutrition.
They say something strange about food. People love food. Some people live to eat. Okay, have you noticed the unhealthiest of food is the tastiest of it, he ever thought of it. Think of it the unhealthiest food
Is the tastiest of it. Why? Perhaps Allah has a wisdom behind it to say, oh man, do not indulge more than a certain amount I'm going to make sure that this is going to be unhealthy for you beyond a certain threshold Subhan Allah so that you realize that you know what goodness is for Jenna this dunya have a little bit of it tasted thank Allah and carry on you you were created for the Hereafter, you're going to go to the year after.
Now it brings me to the next one. I told you, we're going to talk about two qualities. So the caller called and he called out those who were thankful to Allah upon all conditions, and he said, Come out, you go to general before we start with the reckoning with the rest of them. Okay, there's a second category in alladhina canu data Java Juno Bomani, Moto G. Nora boham cofund wapa ma. Where are those who used to at night forsake their beddings worshipping Allah calling out to him when everyone else was asleep? And they used to call out to Allah with a sense of hope and a sense of fear.
We are they
if you end that verse, we read it and saw that such that the verse says Swami Maharaja now whom Yun Fei Poon, they are the ones who used to spend from what we gave them. Notice what I was speaking about just now. They are the ones who used to spend from what we gave them. Allah gave you, he gave you to eat he gave you for your family he gave you for your children he gave you for your brothers and sisters, for whoever your relatives may be. He gave you an after that he's just going to watch, I'm going to throw at you 1 million times more than what you need. And I just want to watch what are you going to do with it? Are you building your hereafter? Are you just going to stash it away until
The winners are those who build the hereafter.
When someone dies, we are quick to say I want to build a machine on the name of this person. Why don't we build a machine for our own name while we are alive? That is a guaranteed act of worship. You did it you're alive your name you did the masjid you did the borehole you did the sadaqa jariya that is the true sadaqa jariya when someone else does it for you after you die, did you ever know there is a possibility that Allah will accept it on your behalf. And there is a chance that it may not be accepted. It wasn't done by you. It was done by someone else. We hope that Allah will accept it on your behalf. But if you did it yourself, that's mine. So let's learn to change the trend to
say the Quran should not be read for me after I died. I must read it while I'm alive. The good deeds and the wells and the trees and the bold and the goodness should not happen by people after my death. I should do it while I'm alive. I must pack it away. We sit and we watch wealthy people pass away you can see the difference. Here's a man he didn't do anything feasibility law.
Because he just gathered his money and counted it. A lot of the people who don't believe are like that, and sometimes even believers who believe in Allah they forget because they needed a reminder. And then you have another man wealthy man passes away. You can tell this man in his life he built 30 Masjid he drilled so many balls he did so much of this he did some Mashallah good news to him he packed away so much for genital Fidel's Allah accepted from them and from all of us, may Allah motivate us and grant us the wealth in order that we can spend it we Sabina so those are the two categories. One is a Lavina cannot can. Medina Allah is Allah, Allah those who used to praise Allah
upon all conditions good and bad. And secondly, Allah the Anaconda Tata Java Juno boohooman, Moto G cofund, matamanoa, those who forsake their beddings at night which means you get up you know, imagine Allah is telling you, are you ready to sacrifice your sleep? If you are Gemini is yours. How pleasurable is sleep? You tie it, they call it you hit the sack.
They literally say a I'm gonna hit the sack. I'm looking forward to a good sleep. Allah says if you can cut that sleep for my sake halfway and you force yourself up and you start crying on the side Jada?
What are you doing? That's a sign of your closeness to Allah. It cannot happen by someone who's not close to Allah. And sometimes Allah creates a need in your life so that he forces you to get to that level where you start navigating through different acts of worship, and it makes you end up getting up at night. You taste the sweetness of it and you don't give it up.
So let's try and get up at least once a week inshallah Is it difficult. Once a week, we get up at night to everyone sleeping, the cry on the masala for a while, some units of prayer to head up and go back once a week. See how the sweetness of it will come if not once a week, even started once a month. Once a month. It's not too much to ask. There's nothing hard and fast to say how many days this is just a suggestion from me.
But this is when we will earn generally
To videos, and these are some of the people who can enter Jannah without reckoning, and not that they were forgiven after reckoning but before the reckoning commenced. They were already picked out where are those they stand up they were little. So the last part of the Hadith says those who used to forsake their beddings they will stand up as well and they will also be few in number and they will be told in the agenda before we start reckoning with everyone else once they go into Jenna, the reckoning will be with the rest of the people they Allah Akbar Kabira May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us forgiveness and gender to Fidel's akula colada or sallallahu wasallam our Baraka ala nabina
