Alhamdulillah hinomoto honesty I know who won the stock when I was a biller, human surely and fusina woman sejati armanino Maria de la dama de la la de la la la la la la la la sharika Hashanah Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira Am I bad, my dear brothers and sisters as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:39 --> 00:01:02

so we're doing a deep number 22 and I believe this is going to be a monumental Hadith for us, because this is officially going to be our halfway mark of this falaka inshallah, so altogether 42 Hadith we skipped Hadith number eight. So on the completion of Hadith number 22. We will now officially be half way so long that I think that's a joyous occasion for us in sha Allah. They had December 22

00:01:04 --> 00:01:46

and now the Abdullah jadwin Abdullah of the long run Houma and narrow julienne Salah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam afrikan are at it also later not too bad to assume to Ramadan or halal to Allah Allah Herenton harana Willem as a da da da da cache, the whole Jana called Anam raha Muslim on the authority of Abu Abdullah jabbered bin Abdullah Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with them both. Who said Amen. Ask the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Tell me if I would have performed the obligatory prayers, faster Ramadan, treat the lawful as permissible and treat the prohibited as forbidden. And I do not add anything to that. Would I enter paradise? He sallallahu

00:01:46 --> 00:02:27

alayhi wa sallam said yes, this hadith was reported by Muslim innominate Mala. He actually added commentary right after this hadith. And he went on to say why mana haram tarama extend up to who were not allowed to halala foul to whom otaku Dan Hilah, who. So the meaning of this is that the treat the for forbidden is prohibited, sorry, the meaning of treat the forbidden as prohibited is to stay away from it. And the meaning of treat the lawful as permissible is to perform them believing that they are permissible. So now the general look, actually, let's start with the word this hadith is married. This Hadith is narrated in Sahih Muslim and one of the interesting things about this

00:02:27 --> 00:03:08

hadith in particular, is that this is one of the Hadith that Mr. Muslim or him Allah was criticized for, in including in his site, he was criticized for including in the site. So one of the Imams of Hadith that came after Mr. Muslim was Mr. Maduro cottony in mm adaro Courtney, and he wrote a book called an exam that was the top block and he the those things that need to be fulfilled and following up and in this book, he criticised several Hadith from Sahil Bukhari and several Hadith from Sahih Muslim and not for the sake of you know, wanting to reject Hadith. But for the sake of amount, Bukhari and Muslim put very strict conditions on themselves, in terms of what Hadith he

00:03:08 --> 00:03:16

would actually accept. And he was criticizing the fact that this hadith did not live up to those conditions, it did not live up to their criterion of authenticity.

00:03:18 --> 00:03:53

Even * Rahim Allah who came several centuries after that, he responded to all of those criticisms, he responded to all of those criticisms. And so he'll Bukhari without a shadow of a doubt, is that anything that is reported from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it does not have any weakness in it with a Muslim. There is a slight difference of opinion are there any weak Hadith inside a Muslim or they're not? Allah Spanos? Allah knows best The closer opinion to the truth is that any howdy Fatima Muslim included in this, if intentionally will not be weak intentionally will not be weak, but rather it is an acceptable hide it is an acceptable Hadith. One

00:03:53 --> 00:04:29

of the Hadith that Emanuel criticized was this very Hadith was this very Hadith. And this hadith also has many other versions to it, to strengthen it. general comments about this hadith as a general comment about this Hadith, you see that this man is coming to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he is asking, you know, what are the minimum requirements that are needed in order for a Muslim to enter paradise? And I believe this is something very important and relevant, because this is something that we all are striving for that we need to know what are the requirements that are needed in order to get to paradise? Muslims, we take our Islam for granted

00:04:29 --> 00:05:00

thinking that you know what, just because we were brought up in Islam, just because we were born in Islam, that we're automatically going to paradise This is not be the Muslims attitude, but rather he should study and research. What are the things that are required in order for him to go to Paradise? What are the things that are required in order for him to go to Paradise? The narrator of the Hadith is jabeen Abdullah Al Ansari. So he was a very, very young companion when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to Medina. Both his father and mother were Muslim. Both his father

00:05:00 --> 00:05:39

Father and mother were Muslim. And he attended after the Battle of water, anything that took place in terms of battles after the Battle of our heart He attended. And, you know, he's one of the companions that narrated a lot of Hadith. In fact, he was from the top 500 Hadith, sorry, the top seven that narrowed Hadith from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he eventually went blind in his old age, and he died in the year 94. After he died, he died in the year 94. After his death, it is also said that he was the last companion alive. in Medina, he was the last companion alive in Medina, and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best about that. So now let us start

00:05:39 --> 00:05:51

off with his lining of questioning, tell me if I were to perform the obligatory prayers, and fast in Ramadan? Why did he only mentioned these two deeds? And not any of the other deeds? Who can tell me this? Why? Go ahead?

00:05:52 --> 00:05:58

Yeah, this person might be new to accepting spam. So he was like,

00:05:59 --> 00:06:00

the seriousness of

00:06:02 --> 00:06:04

testing, was it Yeah. Second thing was

00:06:05 --> 00:06:10

this person he might not have been applicable to make to pay the gap, because those

00:06:11 --> 00:06:12

are the touchy wasn't

00:06:14 --> 00:06:21

fantastic. That is definitely not the only see, had you read that observer? Mashallah, you've been studying good? Do you have the same book? Okay.

00:06:23 --> 00:06:59

That answers it, because your boards are like spot on time. So the reason why he's asking particularly about these two things, and we're going to add in the third one, we're going to add in a third one. So the two that he mentioned over here, number one is that perhaps he was new to Islam. And he didn't want to overburden himself with taking extra things on, right. So he's just asking about the absolute fundamentals that he needs to do. The second thing is that perhaps he did not have much money, and therefore he's not eligible to go for Hajj, nor is he eligible to give the cat nor is he eligible to give the cat. And the third thing we're going to mention, the third thing

00:06:59 --> 00:07:13

we're going to mention is that it shows the perhaps the strictness that the Sahaba rhodiola. home with these two matters with the issue of fasting, and with the issue of prayers. Now this third opinion,

00:07:14 --> 00:07:53

there's some question ability in it, that usually it is a cat and Salah that go hand in hand, right? You see salonica hand in hand throughout the Koran. But over here you see the fasting. Now, some of the scholars, they commented on this by saying that perhaps this was early on, Perhaps this was early on in Islam, and those things were not revealed yet we know Hydra was revealed very, very late, and possibly visicalc, as well, possibly this occurred as well. And that is why is the cat is not mentioned. And it is only the salah and fasting that are mentioned at this given time. Now when you look at this Hadith, do you get the impression that this man is trying to get away with the

00:07:53 --> 00:08:11

absolute minimum? Do you get the impression from this hadith? Because he's saying that basically, if I do this my Salah only, and I do my fasting, and I do the things that Allah has made her that and stay away from the things that Allah has made. How long will I enter paradise? Does that seem like the absolute minimum that he's trying to do?

00:08:12 --> 00:08:46

You guys feel like that? No, you think that you know, he's just trying to enter Paradise, which in reality is what he is trying to do. A lot of times you'll find Muslims use this hadith and say, You know what, let me just stick to praying my five daily prayers and fasting in Ramadan, because this is what this man is trying to do. And in fact, when you look at the other Hadith that are narrated, similar to this, where the Bedouin man comes and he asks the Messenger of Allah so I set up, you know, if I do the five pillars of Islam, you know, when I enter into paradise, and the prophets of Salaam, he has this man leaves he says, If this man is truthful, then inshallah he will enter

00:08:46 --> 00:09:23

Paradise that inshallah he will enter Paradise. For this particular Hadith. What we don't know about it is the individual that's asking the question, his name is not a man, his name is Norman. And he participated in the Battle of butter and in the Battle of height and he died Shaheed in the Battle of insha Allah. So this man, it wasn't that he was just striving to do the minimal, but scholars gave him the benefit of the doubt saying that he's so busy and participating in an expeditions at that time, that he didn't have the ability to take on more than that. And that is why he's just asking about the salah and fasting because he knows that's the only thing he can commit to he cannot

00:09:23 --> 00:09:27

commit to more than that he cannot commit to more than that.

00:09:28 --> 00:09:58

Treat the lawful as permissible and treat the forbidden as prohibited. So he goes on to say that if I pray my prayers and fast my fast and treat the highlights halal and haram is haram, will that be enough? Now this statement over here treating the halal as halal and haram is haram. What we need to look at over here is which one entails action, which one actually entails action, and which one doesn't entail action. Besides the jet besides the jet

00:10:00 --> 00:10:05

Which one entails doing action and which one does not entail doing action? And I need you to think about Dinesh Go ahead.

00:10:08 --> 00:10:10

It entails doing action or entails not doing action

00:10:11 --> 00:10:16

will explain why because whatever it

00:10:18 --> 00:10:19


00:10:25 --> 00:10:26


00:10:31 --> 00:10:47

Okay, so that's definitely one way of looking at it. So he does need to do the obligatory deeds. So let me rephrase my question then. And that is which one requires more action, making the halal haram or making the halal halal or making the Haram haram? That's my question, which one requires more action?

00:10:49 --> 00:10:52

Making the Haram haram requires more action. Explain why.

00:10:59 --> 00:11:00

All right.

00:11:04 --> 00:11:05

Stay away from it.

00:11:10 --> 00:11:12

Okay, that's a good way of looking at it. Go ahead.

00:11:16 --> 00:11:19

The first inclination is a big one. Okay.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:25

Some part of them wants to do that. So they have to really fight against this.

00:11:27 --> 00:12:04

Good. So now the question we want to ask, is abstinence a form of taking action? If you choose to abstain from something, Is that considered an action? Right? And the answer is yes, abstaining from something is considered an action because when you abstain from something Allah subhanaw taala does reward you for it, and therefore it is considered an action. So now with that having been said the answer to this question is that there is more action required and staying away from the heroin and prohibiting the heroin than there is in making the Holla Holla let's see why everything that is hard on you have to stay away from it, you have to abstain from it, okay. But everything is that is how

00:12:04 --> 00:12:28

long do you actually have to indulge in everything? That is how long? The answer is no, right. So you can pick and choose from the holiday which he wants to do. So not everything that is highlighted, you actually have to indulgent whereas everything that is prohibited, you do actually have to stay away from and that is why abstaining from the Haram requires more action than enjoying that which is permissible, enjoying that which is permissible.

00:12:32 --> 00:12:46

In terms of the issue of not doing anything more than that not doing anything more than that. While this companion as we mentioned, he asked this that, you know if I'm not going to do anything more than this, will this be sufficient for me?

00:12:47 --> 00:13:18

There's a couple of things that need to be looked at over here if we're going to take the opinion over here that you know, the cat was not legislated at the time had you would not legislated at that time, then yes, the statement would be factually true, the statement would be factually true. However, if you say that this is after the cat has been legislated and after a hedge has been legislated that this man doesn't need to be doing the need to do any more than obviously this hadith is very problematic in that sense, because here the Prophet salallahu Salam is saying that as long as you fast and pray then that is enough for you to enter Paradise. And that is why some of the

00:13:18 --> 00:13:53

scholars of the past zody and others they held the opinion that Hadith like this, were actually abrogated Hadith like this, were actually abrogated, and that once hygiene Salah once hygiene is a coward legislated, then even Hudgens. Zakat would be mandatory upon these people would be mandatory upon these people. The majority responded to the likes of God and other than them by saying that this is not the case because it was not applicable to this man. And because that man did not have enough money to spend either in circuit or he did not have enough money to spend in circuit or on Hajj.

00:13:55 --> 00:14:30

The issue of voluntary deeds in Islam and the station and the rule that they have, and I believe this is something that's, you know, very important to look at, on how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he advised different companions with different things. So Bedouin man comes he asked, this lining of question just wants to stick to the five pillars this man comes, he just wants to stick to the five pillars. But when you look at the companions that lived inside of Medina, the likes of Abu Bakar the likes of you know more either bingeable you'll notice that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam held his companions to a higher standard. So who can give me an example

00:14:30 --> 00:14:38

of the pups to sell them holding? Why them in Java and Abubakar and other companions to a higher standard? Those that lived in Medina, who can give me an example of that. Good

00:14:39 --> 00:14:40


00:14:47 --> 00:14:47


00:14:53 --> 00:14:59

Fantastic. Yes, so promises on Monday after fetchit he asked all the companions and it was only aboubaker de la I knew that kept raising his hand.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:32

For all of this, and this shows us that the companions that were in the close proximity of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam had a higher standard to them. They were required to do more good deeds. And they were also required to have more taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They're also required to have more taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You look at the story of Milan and Jebel, Muslim and Japanese told by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that nothing will cause people to be thrown more into the Hellfire than the harvesting of their tongue, meaning that which accumulates from the consequences of their tongue. So the messenger Allah, so some takes an

00:15:32 --> 00:16:06

extra step, to advise them either of the evil consequences of the trunk. And it shows us that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, when he's dealing with different people, he would give them different rulings based upon their capability. So he's not watering down, you know, the Islam that he's presenting to them, but he's looking at what they're actually capable of. And the more capability a person has, due to the companionship of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, the more righteous he is required to be, the more righteous he is required to be. And this is why it's very important that you know, particularly dealing with new converts, people that are just

00:16:06 --> 00:16:39

coming back to Islam, that one be very practical with them, right. Some was just practically, you know, first step coming back to Islam, you don't start off by telling them, you know what, you have to stop eating pork, you have to stop drinking wine, you have to get with your girlfriend, you have to stop doing all of this. That is not the first step. The first step is telling them who Allah subhanaw taala is make sure they understand you what he does. And then you start off with the five pillars of Islam, make sure that they're praying, make sure that they're fasting, make sure that they have the supports to do those things. Because if these things aren't in order, then those

00:16:39 --> 00:17:10

secondary matters will not come into play, the secondary matters will not come into play. And a lot of times we we see burnout in the situation that someone comes first into the dean, he meets like this really hardcore brother and his brother's like, you know what, you need to grow your beard right away. Your Pants need to be above your ankles, or you're going to the hellfire. And all of a sudden this, this person thinks that you know what all of Islam is about how big your beard is and how high your pants are. That is the unfortunate reality. Right? But you look at the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that is not what he began with. So he always came first.

00:17:10 --> 00:17:30

establish that relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then focus on the Pillars of Islam, focus on the prayers, focus on the Salah, focus on the soccer, whatever you're capable from the five pillars try to do that first. And then you build on top of that, because if you're not doing the basics, the secondary things are not as relevant or not as relevant. The face What are you going to say? Yeah.

00:17:34 --> 00:17:35


00:17:36 --> 00:17:47

Because okay, right. At that time, there was no media spread, like we have right now. So maybe the here. Come on. Just one second.

00:17:48 --> 00:17:53

Uncle, do you need a chair? Shall we get your chair? Okay, fantastic. Yep. Go ahead.

00:17:58 --> 00:18:35

No, I actually believe that if you look at when this man died, no man died. He died at the bottom of our head, right. So it was clearly before Hydra was legislated. So he could not have been legislated when this man was asking. So Allah Subhana Allah knows best, it just seems that this incident took place before the captain Hydra actually legislated. And that is why they aren't mentioned in this hadith. And Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, that's a very good way of looking at it. That is very possible. Some of the companions didn't hear the Hadith. It had a very funny scenario, very recently. So everyone knows who Abraham is, right? It has some famous scholar, the violin must have

00:18:36 --> 00:19:12

his commentating on imama telemovie. He's commentating on the mammoth tirmidhi, one of the, you know, compilers of the six famous authentic books of Hadith. And he when he caught himself on the mountain, where he says, will the nama telemovie mature, we don't know who the SEMA tournament is, I don't know why people keep referring to him. And that is because in his when he made that comment, he never came across in a tournament, he had no idea what he was up. And it shows that even like 400 years later, this is like one of the greatest scholars that the oma has seen in terms of Hadith in terms of his contributions to work, and he has no idea who he is. And that is like when you know

00:19:13 --> 00:19:40

Hadeeth has been compiled it's been spread around. So you can imagine at the time of his companions that one had this doesn't get around it's very, very possible and that is why Armada macabre de la No, you know, in certain cases, he was very strict. He's like, you know, after the death of the prophet SAW them if people want to implement it as soon and call something as soon as he would tell those people that you know, bring a second witness to this or we're not going to allow this to be legislated and even did this to like, major companions, like Musashi or the Allahu anhu Go ahead.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:49

Sorry, did you see Assa?

00:19:52 --> 00:19:56

Saya? Yes, yes. I heard CSM like what it was Yes.

00:19:57 --> 00:19:59

Okay. Yeah. So, basically

00:20:00 --> 00:20:20

Have all of the books of Hadith. These are the books of Hadith that have the most authenticity in them, as well as the most acceptability amongst the people. So in terms of how accepted they were amongst the scholars of Hadith, as well as how authentic the Hadith are, these are the six most authentic books compared to the rest of them that are out there. And that's why they're called the six or 30 books I've had these

00:20:22 --> 00:20:23

about hedge

00:20:33 --> 00:20:33

the Kaabah

00:20:34 --> 00:20:36

metal off. Yeah.

00:20:47 --> 00:21:13

Allah subhanaw taala actually describes and sort of unfold what their their Hajj was like, when I kind of saw that domain del Beatty Illa mocha Oh, what was that they used to dance around naked around the Kaaba. That was their idea of, you know, making tawaf around the Kaaba dancing and can clapping, right. So obviously, their understanding of hijab become completely warped. It wasn't a normal concept of hygiene omura like we have it. So

00:21:15 --> 00:21:47

they would come for for pilgrimage at various times throughout the year, but they will, I don't know if they would specify the month of the ledger or not. I don't have to specify the month of the ledger or not. It was only through Islam, that the messenger of Asana taught us the rituals of Hajj from beginning to end, how to do the work properly wearing a hat on, you know, going for salary, the drinking of zum zum the cutting of the hair there, the version of that the police had was completely different was completely different. So the next part of the head is will I enter Paradise will I enter paradise?

00:21:49 --> 00:22:07

We've discussed previously that no one will enter Paradise except by the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala How do you reconcile the two Hadith? How do you reconcile the two Hadees that this man he's saying that if I pray my five prayers, and I fast my fast will the interpreters possum says Yes, go ahead.

00:22:14 --> 00:22:15


00:22:16 --> 00:22:29

fantastic. So that is one opinion definitely that it is from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that a person does these actions, which allows him to be entered into paradise. That's one way of looking at what's the second way of looking at Go ahead.

00:22:37 --> 00:22:40

Okay, so how do you reconcile between the two heads? If

00:22:43 --> 00:22:49

so, how did how come this man he got a yes from the Messenger of Allah. So So why did he get Yes, that's what we're trying to figure out.

00:23:04 --> 00:23:08

Okay, I'm not sure too sure if I understand that properly. So just go ahead.

00:23:14 --> 00:23:51

Yes, so that's number two, then in order to be eligible for the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala you have to be fulfilling that which you are commanded with. And the trickery I was just playing with you guys, was the fact that I only mentioned salah and so fasting, but this man he didn't just say salah and fasting, he said Salaam fasting and if I make the halal Haram in the huddle, huddle, and I make the Haram haram will I then enter Paradise, right? So he knows that eventually it is possible that he will have to do three more things. He's calling his cognitive of that fact. So that is number two, that in order to be eligible for the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada, you have to fulfill

00:23:51 --> 00:24:25

the requirements. And I believe this is very important to understand that a person thinks that you know, just because they've said La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, and this is the key to paradise. And this is going to be the heaviest thing on the scales on the Day of Judgment, that they will all be entered into paradise. And this is not the case. The conclusive answer to this is, everything has its conditions, and all the conditions needs to be met even the Shahada. So the conditions of the Shahada are not met, then the person will not be entering paradise will not be eligible to enter Paradise. So in order to be eligible to enter Paradise in order to be eligible to

00:24:25 --> 00:24:52

receive the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the hereafter, why they can suffer cancer in order to be eligible to receive the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala in the hereafter. They have to fulfill everything that they are obligated with, they have to fulfill everything that they are obligated with, to the best of their ability to the best of their ability. Who knows the conditions of the Shahada? What are the conditions of the Shahada? 377 conditions of the Shahada

00:24:56 --> 00:24:57


00:25:03 --> 00:25:09

That is defining a man. So that is what a man is, well, what are what are the conditions in order for the Shahada to be fulfilled?

00:25:11 --> 00:25:12

Go ahead. Yes. And

00:25:19 --> 00:25:23

those are like the fruits of those conditions. Those are the fruits of those conditions.

00:25:25 --> 00:25:27

Fantastic. Okay.

00:25:34 --> 00:26:09

So this is sort of the, you know, the, the issue we're trying to get at is that, you know, this, this will and desire of knowing what will enter us into paradise, like knowing the the conditions of the Shahada is something that is mandatory upon every Muslim, right? So we'll summarize them very quickly. And then I can't remember which class we took this in, when we discussed heading number two and heading number three, yeah, when we discussed heading number two, and number three, we discussed the conditions of the shot and you guys can go back to that. So the conditions of the Shahada are seven. So you have to know what the Shahada actually means. The Shahada means that no one is worthy

00:26:09 --> 00:26:48

of worship except Allah, not that there's no God other than Allah, not that there's no creator other than Allah. But there's no one worthy of worship, except Allah subhanho wa Taala eliakim, to have certainty in this, as opposed to doubt so you have no doubt in this COBOL COBOL is acceptance of this, so you cannot reject it, you cannot deny it? I am cleared compliant with all the the consequences or legislations that come with it. And Elmo will yochanan Well, COBOL will MKR do further, Mr. Cole said, is being truthful with the statement to the best of your ability. So make sure that you're trying to abide by it at all times. And the last which is sincerity, that the

00:26:48 --> 00:27:30

statement is said only for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala no one is forcing you to say it, you're not trying to get any political asylum in a worldly asylum out of this. And then, and then loving this statement, loving the people of this statement. Right? So those are the seven conditions of the Shahada. That was seven or eight. Okay? So those are the conditions of the Shahada. Now, these seven conditions are just for the Shahada, then there's more to this that is required in terms of you know, how do I perfect my Salah How do I perfect my fasting, how to perfect my hijab, perfect my circuit, all of these things, those two are required. And I believe that, you know, shaky so called

00:27:30 --> 00:28:02

the he he made a very beautiful statement that is now this past weekend, he said that not every individual is required to become an alum, not each and every individual is required to become an honor. And just because you're not required to become an island, it doesn't mean that you need to stay gehele in your deen, it doesn't mean that you need to stay jail in everything. And that's the message we want to try to get across. That he is becoming a scholar becoming a student of knowledge is very difficult and very burdensome. But at the same time, just because you're not able to become a scholar or a student of knowledge, it doesn't mean that you don't need to know the basics of your

00:28:02 --> 00:28:45

deen. You don't need to know, you know, the very fundamentals of what your faith is actually built upon. So it's, you know, mandatory that we take the time to learn the very basics of our faith and share it with our family members, as well and share it with our family members as well. Now is the path to paradise, actually easy is the path to paradise actually is. And I believe this is a complicated question to discuss, because this purely depends upon tofik from Allah subhanaw taala. Some people Allah subhanaw taala blesses them to such a degree that yes, paradise does become easy for them. For other people. Paradise is in fact very, very difficult. Now the question arises, what

00:28:45 --> 00:28:58

differentiates a person from receiving the two feet of Allah subhanaw taala to make it easy, versus an individual that does not receive tofik from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the path to paradise becomes very, very hard, who can answer that for me?

00:29:01 --> 00:29:22

Okay, there are certain people that the path to Paradise is very, very easy for them. They naturally love a man they naturally love, goodness, they naturally love to do good things. Whereas there are other people that the pastor Paradise is extremely difficult. It's filled with one pitfall after another, filled with one desire after another, filled with one doubt after another

00:29:46 --> 00:29:59

except that it's half an answer, but good attempt very good attempt. Who can comment even further on that? Why is paradise easier for some people than others? What is it based upon? That's my question. Which people receive Delphic from Allah which people don't

00:30:00 --> 00:30:01

Receive Delphic from a less final time.

00:30:04 --> 00:30:05

Come on what's happening, buddy?

00:30:07 --> 00:30:09

When does paradise become easy for someone?

00:30:14 --> 00:30:19

So that's my question how do you receive a less blessings so that the pastor paradise becomes easy?

00:30:22 --> 00:30:30

That's number one of three. So we'll I'll accept that as a general answer. That's one of three. There's two other things that are missing.

00:30:33 --> 00:30:38

What are the required in order for the pastor paradise to become easy? That's a question

00:30:39 --> 00:30:57

to become shades. Even if you become shaved, you're not guaranteed paradise in in, you know, the the appearance of the people. We know of that man that he died on the battlefield. And they kept on saying that he was a show he then pauses and kept on telling me Don't say that don't say that. And eventually to them because this man killed himself on the battlefield.

00:30:58 --> 00:30:59


00:31:01 --> 00:31:04

tie that in with his think that's still one of three.

00:31:06 --> 00:31:10

pure heart. That is the actual answer that encompasses their their think

00:31:11 --> 00:31:13

making the offer agenda?

00:31:14 --> 00:31:16

No, that's too specific. Go ahead.

00:31:18 --> 00:31:25

Number two, that is number two of three. A person is required to have knowledge a person is required to have knowledge. And that was the last one.

00:31:26 --> 00:31:27


00:31:29 --> 00:31:40

Yes and No, like knowledge and actions that come hand in hand. There's no such thing as knowledge existing without action from a shadow perspective. And then it's just your favorite answer, bro. Fantastic sincerity.

00:31:41 --> 00:31:54

So those are the three things that the scholars mentioned, that will differentiates the path to paradise becoming easy for one group of people versus the pastor paradox becoming difficult for a group of people is three things. Number one is

00:31:55 --> 00:32:31

discipline in terms of refraining from desires, discipline, in terms of refraining from desires. So the path to paradise that becomes easy for people is only after they've spent a very long time disciplining them enough so that they're no longer traps for those individuals. Number two, is that knowledge and action go hand in hand while self knowledge and action go hand in hand. And a person has to have knowledge of what are the things what are the deeds that a person can do, so that he attains mercy from Allah, what are the deeds he needs to stay away from so that he attains the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Tada. So action and knowledge go hand in hand. In Islam, we don't

00:32:31 --> 00:33:07

differentiate between the two. And then the third thing is that this person's heart is constantly attached to Allah subhanho wa Taala is always seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala constantly remembering Allah subhanaw taala constantly renewing his intention. And this goes back back to our discussion on this diploma that we had on Friday night, like this is a pastiche the common right to there, that a person has knowledge. A person, you know, has this desire to refrain from committing sins, and a person has sincerity with Allah subhanho wa Taala, then Allah subhanho wa Taala makes the path to paradise easy. And when a person falters in one of these three things,

00:33:08 --> 00:33:44

where either he doesn't have sincerity, or either he doesn't have the knowledge and act upon it, or that this person just doesn't like struggling against their desires, then that is when paradise becomes very, very difficult. And that is what we see in the hadith of gibreel. That Allah subhanaw taala surrounded, you know, Hellfire with so many temptations, that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that it was feared that you know, no one would be able to refrain from these temptations, and paradise was surrounded with so many difficulties, that he was afraid that no one would be able to surpass these difficulties to enter Paradise. So that is how the path

00:33:44 --> 00:33:55

to paradise becomes easy. That's only after struggling with once enough's attaining knowledge and having sincerity with Allah subhanho wa Taala, that Allah subhanaw taala makes the path to paradise easy.

00:33:56 --> 00:34:01

Now, the last thing we will talk about in this Hadeeth

00:34:04 --> 00:34:38

is the issue of what is the minimum requirement that is required for a person to become a Muslim and stay in Islam when it comes down to the cattle? So the discussion revolves around what are the deeds that are required in order to enter into Islam. And then on top of that, stay inside the fold of Islam and then stay inside the fold of Islam. I don't want to make it a long discussion. But I'll give you a summarized version over here. And that is the dates. It's time for modeling. We don't have a couple of minutes.

00:34:40 --> 00:34:41

Now what time is it right now?

00:34:43 --> 00:34:44

It's a 20.

00:34:49 --> 00:34:57

Okay, I'll give you a conclusion of the answer. We're going to the left another time where you guys can refer back to headache number two and number three.

00:34:58 --> 00:34:59

Exam enough spill our candle

00:35:00 --> 00:35:38

It is holding the nerves responsible to fulfill the five pillars of Islam, the holding of the nerves responsible for the five pillars of Islam. That is the requirement to stay within the fold of Islam. So a person Yes, he might miss some prayers here and there as long as he has the desire to continue praying that he still want to be in the fold of Islam. Likewise, if you ever had the desire not to do any of the other pillars, like he doesn't want to give his cat intentionally doesn't want to go for Hajj intention that he doesn't want to fast in Ramadan intentionally, then this would be enough to take him outside the fold of Islam, even if he continued to pray, even if he continued to pray.

00:35:38 --> 00:35:55

So it's exam enough to build our candle camps. It is the holding your neffs accountable, to try your best to fulfill the five pillars of Islam. That is what will keep a person inside the fold of Islam. Allah huhtala Allah sallallahu wasallam melodica and the Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam
