We begin today's Friday reminder by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala who is no doubt our Creator sustainer and Alicia our protector and Acura. We ask him the almighty the Lord of all worlds the exalted to send his choices to blessings and salutations upon the final messenger our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with that most sincerity until the day of karma.
Brothers and sisters before I delve into the content that is in place for today's reminder, I'd like to start off by advising myself and then all of you all tuning in to this stream, to adopt a life of taqwa. What is the for that what is to be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it is of utmost importance that we bring in this stuff, that we are conscious of him during every single second of our lives, if we wish to attain victory and success in this world, as well as the hereafter. And this is in accordance to what he's handing what Allah says in Surah number, he says in a cleaner Mufasa Indeed, for the people of taqwa is Mufasa Mufasa as in victory and success, victory and
success in this world as well as the next May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all from the people of taqwa. And may He make us from the victorious and successful ones I mean,
You and I as believers, we are striving really hard, we work really really hard to achieve the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala because for us the pleasure of Allah is of paramount importance,
our deeds, our actions, our statements, through all these things we want to achieve the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala we first the month of Ramadan we stay away from food we stay away from a thought there are things that nullify our fast for the sake of Allah to please Him subhanho wa Taala we go on Hajin hombre to please Allah subhanho wa Taala we stand up in prayer, damn, you know, during the night to do in the last third of the night, in a bada in worship, reading the Koran making dua, praying unto him subhanho wa Taala to please him as a virgin, we stay away from all which he has asked us to stay away to please Him subhana wa sallam, we give out charity
through our hard earned money made in the form of soda or Zika to please Allah subhanho wa Taala so we're doing all of this we're striving really hard to achieve the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala
and we are also aware, we know that by pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala he is going to admit us into his garden. His beautiful and lofty garden gender, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all entry into the loftiest of his gardens I mean, now in terms of gender, the prophets that I love it when he was sillim is a reporter have said Jenna
my that I you know what
does replace the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says man I know not well known semi out what a hot or it could be Russia. No, I have never seen it. No ear has ever heard about it. No, has it crossed the mind of any human being. You can have the wildest imaginations. And you can imagine all you want to my dear brother, my dear sister. But you should know that Jenna is far far beyond that.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us entry into this beautiful garden. I mean, so for today's reminder, I hope to touch on eight ways to set your agenda.
Now bear in mind, there are other ways for you to gain access into Jenna as well. But for this video, for this short reminder, I hope to touch on eight ways a child log data.
So without further ado, I know you are excited. You want to know the ways so let's get into them right away. Number one, through taqwa and good conduct.
By the way, I'm going to back all of these ways with evidence from the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So duck Wah and good conduct. Hadith is in the book of Amanda tirmidhi Rahim Allah. It is an authentic narration and Abby Herrera de la one. So I bought it
On the last one, he says an Abbe Herrera for the Allahu anhu call so a lot of sort of law he said a lot while he was sending the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked what admits most people into Jenna what admits most people into paradise? So
the sort of lights that allow it anyway Selim, the Messenger of Allah Salah Islam was asked what admits most people into paradise. Now the prophets of Allah Islam response he says that will love what has known khaolak
duck will love
the consciousness of a loss of Hannah mortality be conscious of him and that is why this reminder we began with it. And we generally do when it comes to Friday reminders, you will have heard the mushiya the scholars, the righteous people, they would they would talk a lot about this concept known as taqwa because it is of utmost importance. And as you can see through this Hadith, it gets you into gender, along with good character.
And then in that same narration
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was also asked what condemns most people to Johanna
to the blazing fire of hell. And then the Prophet Elias and the Madonna respond to that as well by saying, the mouth and the genitals, the mouth and the private paths alhfam wild while fetch the mouth and the private parts, these are the two things that drag a person into the fire of jahannam if they are left unchecked,
if they are not, in control, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to control
our mouse and our private paths. So now coming back to the initial part of the Hades,
the consciousness of Jamaica and good character, good conduct, personal hordak.
If you look at yourself,
and I start, I start off by
start off with myself basically, if you look into yourself, and if you introspect, you'd see that we lack in this regard in regards to taqwa and in regards to good conduct, regards to how we deal with other people.
Are we following the teachings of the Prophet sallallaahu? Selim in terms of dealing with others?
You know, so it's very important to introspect. Do we enjoy backbiting about others? Do we enjoy gossiping about others? Do we enjoy the sight of someone falling down? So many brothers and sisters, we need to introspect. We need to look into ourselves and ask ourselves in terms of how we deal with with others. So as you can see these two pieces of advice from prophets Allah Al Islam, when it gets to taqwa
it is to do with your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now,
the second part of the answer, personal HELOC, it is now in regards to how you deal with the creation of the Creator.
So, the first part of the answer in terms of how you deal with the Creator, the second part of the answer in terms of how you deal with the creation of the Creator,
because now by infringing upon the rights of the creation of the Creator, you are displeasing the creator Subhana Allah.
If you hurt someone, if you backbite about someone, if you gossip about someone, then you have infringed upon the rights kokubo a bad otherwise known as a bad. So it is of utmost importance that we work on these two aspects in terms of our relationship with Allah, and in terms of our relationship with others around us,
other human beings in terms of how we deal with them, in terms of how we deal with animals, you know, the creation of our maker, subhanho data, basically speaking. So we need to ask ourselves, do we enjoy looking at people falling?
You know the faults of others? Are we willing to give them a helping hand? Are we willing to think good about others? Are we willing to make excuses for others?
Or are we focusing on the faults of others? Are we exposing others? Are we lying are we you know, involved in treachery, deceit, cheating others? robbing them? You know?
Subhan Allah, itself like most important is to be embody the Sunnah of the Prophet salaallah Islam in this regard. We claim to love the prophet and we say that we are striving to follow the Prophet then it is of utmost faith.
Bottom that we look at his his conduct his character, how he dealt with others how he
you know how he conducted himself how he carried himself sort of love it when he was element dealing with others, and we too should emulate him in this regard.
Moving on path number two way number two, a Salah. The prophets of Allah Almighty really were cylinders boardtrip said, the one who plays the prayers, the five daily prayers at the prescribed times. There is this agreement there is this covenant between him and Allah that Allah will admit him into agenda. So moving on to Part Number Two Way number two to get yourself into Jenna, a Salah prayer
it's from the pillars of the deen bruneian Islam Allah homes our Deen is built upon five five pillars and you know, the Salah is from the Pillars of Islam, and the promise that it was reported to have said
the one who prays a Salawat the five daily prayers at the appointed times kinda they will be decided between him and Allah Subhana Allah will love loving admit him into agenda so it is from the pillars of the DNC you can't do without it. And by offering the prayers at their appointed times for the sake of Allah now you have this covenant between you and allow a loving admit you into Jenna.
My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, it's of utmost importance that you do not compromise on your prayers, your prayers, this this beautiful link between you and Allah this divine link between you and Allah azza wa jal do not compromise on them. Strive to offer them at the appointed times, and strive to offer them in the best of ways to secure agenda but number three, a good word, speaking a good word.
We have a hadith we have a narration that has been recorded in the book of Imam Al Bukhari, Abu huraira. The last one we mentioned that the Prophet sallallaahu image report rep said aka mccollister, to set up
indeed the slave and the narration goes along the lines of these words the slave of Allah speaks a word okay?
out of the pleasure of Allah as in seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And through that, what happens is he rises in in ranks, you rises in his ranks, in terms of his ranks in general.
And then in the same habit of Salah cinnamon don't to say the servant May the slave may speak a single word for which and in another narration the wording is in such a way in the lab the later Kela mobile Kalamata Ian's it will be half in our other item avena machine if they want a mother in law a cover that a slave a servant may speak a single word for which he plummets.
He goes down now, the early part of the Hadith he goes up in terms of his ranks in Jannah, he is going to plummet down into the Hellfire farther than the distance between the East and the West.
Through one word, many brothers and sisters one word, through one word, you either plummet into the depths of hell, or through one word, you ascend your eyes. May Allah Subhana Allah make us of those who rise? May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from becoming of those who plummet. So speak a good word, a positive word, a kind word, a loving word, a caring word, a word to brighten up someone's day.
A word that pleases Allah let that be the yardstick a word that pleases Allah Subhana hoisin. On the other hand, uttering a single word that displeases Eliza Jen, beat a word of kufri bead, a word that angers Allah subhanho wa Taala, a blasphemous word or a word that breaks the heart of another individual ally. You know, false hood,
a word of oppression,
in place of a word of justice, a word of oppression, but that results in oppression that result that results in hurt pain. These are words that will put you down and drag you down like an anchor, may Allah protect us. So this is this is very important, and this is something that you need to focus on. Moving on, but number four now.
truthfulness, a set of etiquette is headed it has been recorded in the book of Imam Al Bukhari. Anima Muslim Rahim Allah the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is a reporter have said I like this. It is obligatory for you to speak the truth for India.
cerca de Ll beer.
Listen to these words in very, very interesting and powerful words, for the truth leads to virtue by virtue. We're in El bira. Yeah de la Jana, and then virtue leads you to Jenna leads you to the garden.
Warm is Allah Roger? Yes. doko so the man who continues to speak the truth Wyatt the Hara besylate always at the heart of silica and he strives, he endeavors to tell the truth.
Had the youth turbine the law he said D upon until eventually this man is recorded as a truthful individual said they look at Abercrombie. He is known as Uber condescending, the truthful say is recorded as a truthful individual by a lot and in the process that it went on to say what yambol gift. Beware of lies. Beware of speaking a lie of telling a lie. For in Gilbert Yeah, de la fu for lies. For telling a lie. For speaking a lie. It leads to for jewelry, it leads to sinfulness it leads to obscenity for jewel and Alfa jewel, we're in El fujimura de la now. And then obscene 84 jewel
transgression leads to the blazing Inferno of jahannam. And then he's hilarious and went on to say I'm the person who keeps lying. And he strives to tell a lie you see today, unfortunately, it's become so common
that many of us even when we are asked,
say over the phone, you are you are asked Where are you?
Or perhaps you're you are supposed to be there for a meeting or whatever it is. You are asked, Are you on your way? Or where are you? We go on to 90 without hesitating at times we are at home and say I don't know I'm on the road, I'm on my way. Or we are at another location we say we are somewhere else.
You know, and it's become so common that we don't even think twice we don't even think of it as a lie. So as you can see one lie after another. This becomes this colossal mountain of lies and by the way to cover up for one lie you read another line so you keep on lying lie after lie. Look at the words of the messengers that allow it ready within the media brothers and sisters. He says that lying leads you to obscenity and obscenity leads you to the fire of Johanna and the person who keeps lying and strives to lie. He is recorded as a cat Deb Elia with Allah Subhana Allah Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us to be from the
people who are titled as a Cydia. I mean, moving on back number five now.
upright dealings, the prophets lie Selim is reported to have said
that the truthful merchant, the truthful businessman, the truthful entrepreneur,
he the trustworthy and the truthful, businessman, he is going to be married now begin was a decade for Shahada. This is the book of Mama tirmidhi, he is going to be with the prophets, Allahu Akbar, he is going to be with the truthful ones, a severe pain, and he's going to be with the martyrs. Now you might be wondering, a businessman, going to be with the profits going to be with all these great individuals, the prophets of Allah Subhana Allah, many brothers and sisters in Islam, think again, and sit down and ponder on these words. Do you know how difficult it is to be an upright businessman,
especially in today's landscape, to be a trustworthy businessman, businessman who does not lie for profit. A businessman who does not deceive. A businessman who does not cheat is not easy Subhana Allah, so striving to be that striving to stay away from that which is haraam striving to do business? To do transact sticking firmly to that which is halaal It is not easy, my dear brothers and sisters, so for that the reward is magnanimous and lofty. you strive to do that you stay away from Allah haram stick to that which is halal. As you can see a businessman, a merchant who strives he stays away from haram sticks to that which is halal and pure. His reward by Allah is Great
Indeed, Allah subhanho is Allah make us from those who are truthful and upright in their dealings. You see today you hear about
Many, many issues in the marketplaces. And unfortunately,
where Muslims need to be role models in terms of dealing in terms of transactions where people should say that you know what, if it's dealing with the Muslim, we're ready to do so eyes closed because they're such truthful people. They're such applied individuals, but unfortunately, it's the other way around. Unfortunately, it's not that but rather people fear to deal with the Muslims. They is this apprehension when it comes to dealing with a Muslim? Because you never know how this man might deceive you or cheat us panela that should not be the case. And we as Muslims must strive to, you know, change the way things are, May Allah help us to do so.
Moving on bad number six.
Anger Management. The Prophet sallallaahu was reputed to have said, a man to a man who came to the prophet and said you had a sort of law point me or indicate to me a deed that would admit me into gender. The prophets that Islam tells the man lotta hubbub did not become angry will occur, Jenna, and for you is Jenna, and for you is paradise louer anger management.
You see, think about it. When you give into your anger. It's this rage that destroys and consumes you. It's this fire is this raging fire. That's what I was trying to say is this raging fire that destroys and consumes you. When you give into your anger, it's this raging fire that just destroys and obliterates panela. Think about it. When people are angry, they say all kinds of things. They do all kinds of things. They literally literally lose it right? So this is where the devil capitalizes, it's a window of opportunity for him to make you do so many things that you're going to definitely regret later on. So it's very, very important that we manage our tempers our anger, and this would
vary from individual to individual. For some, they're very good at it for some day, you know, it's no it's called, you know, having a short fuse, but you find it very difficult to control your anger. So depending on where you are on the spectrum of you know, handling and controlling your anger, you must work on controlling it and managing it may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to do so. But number seven, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says
that the one who looks after the orphans are the one who looks after an orphan and I are going to be in Jenna hakkoda like this, and he went on to show by basically keeping his fingers his pointer finger and his middle finger to show the proximity of himself and the one who looks after the orphan in Jenna. So if you want to achieve Gemini if you want to achieve an entry into Jenna and proximity with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam agenda, look after the orphan media brothers and sisters, give out in charity. Look at this other Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says now this is reported by the loved one.
Whoever comes with five deeds, along with fate will enter Jannah so this is a bonus narration By the way, along with the eight paths, I'm going to give you this hadith as well. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says one who preserves the five prayers we've already touched on it and hamdulillah there ablution along with the ablution, the ablution for the five prayers, they are bowing the record of the five prayers. They are prostrations the sujood of the five prayers and they are timings The one who protects all of that. He is going to enter Jannah one who fasts the month of Ramadan is going to enter agenda. One who performs Hajj to the house of a life he can find a way to
do so he's going to and Jenna one who gives charity with a cheerful soul. You're not giving charity like a Scrooge where oh, you know I have to give the car but I don't want to give my Zakah I have to give sadaqa but I don't want to give so the kind of rather the one who gives charity with a cheerful soul. I want to give it and gives it and the one who fulfills the trust. Now as you can see these five things that the Messenger of Allah Islam is mentioning in this hadith disgusted about so these five things will lead you to jenessa charity, giving out charity giving sadaqa giving out your zecca looking after the orphan
you know investing in sadaqa jariya continuous charity will assure you entry into gender May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us entry into gender I mean
the last part that I hope to do
For this video, my dear brothers and sisters is looking after one's parents bedroom violating the Prophet sallallaahu. Selim his report grabs that in the Hadees and then addiction goes along the lines of these words.
How unfortunate is the one or may his nose be rubbed in the dust?
As in this individual is unfortunate indeed, who and the proper return to say this thrice means no spear up in the dust means no spear up in the dust means rose knows me, robbed in the desert or how unfortunate is he? How unfortunate is he? How unfortunate he is, uh, he. So it was asked Who is this individually rasulillah who is this individual messenger of Allah, the prophets of Allah Islam then says the one whom during his lifetime
is either one of his parents, either his mother or his father or both of them, okay attain old age. And he is not able to achieve gender through that.
So let me explain. So you na,
our parents beat your mother, or your father or the the two of them attaining old age. And now this is a time where you need to be in their service,
looking after them and treating them with excellence upon excellence with their son.
So the Prophet says, the one who gets this blessing and then does not enter Jannah. So why is he not entering gender because he has failed in terms of his service towards his parents, if he is not able to achieve gender through his parents, then he is so unfortunate. So my dear brothers and sisters, your mother, your father, if they are alive, and with you,
either both parents or one parent, don't lose this massive pathway agenda, this massive window of opportunity to achieve the pleasure of Allah, thereby gaining entry into agenda.
Don't wait till it's too late. My dear brothers and sisters, go and listen to the Wars of regret of those who have lost their parents, if they could go and sit by their graves. Now they would.
But it's too late. The parents have passed on. So if your mother is alive, if your father is alive, if both your mother and your father are alive, then you have this massive opportunity to secure their pleasure by treating them well. By looking after them at times their ill old age, they're finding it difficult, just just like how they looked after you when you could not fend for yourself. When you could not even walk. They carried you they fed you they nurtured you and now look at yourself, you are where you are because of them looking after you many brothers and sisters and you have this huge responsibility upon your shoulders unto them. And the Quran and the Sunnah clearly
highlight this, so let us strive to treat them with the best of treatments with excellence upon excellence, thereby securing the garden of Amica subhanho wa Taala. With that I conclude today's Friday reminder I look forward to talking to you all in another video soon inshallah. dalla desert como la who hire off for tuning into this stream. inshallah we will talk again, as in through the medium of the Friday reminder perhaps the coming week could be in the light Allah. So we conclude by praying that Allah Subhana Allah forgives our sins, that he accepts our good deeds, that he blesses us that he opens doors of goodness, prosperity, good health and long life for all of us. That he
keeps us steadfast upon his Deen that he keeps our hearts steadfast upon purity and upon his Deen. And lastly, may Eliza Virgil admit all of us into His beautiful and lofty garden. I mean, I mean laughter that way and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Jessa Camilla Hara was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
