On Judgment Day we are not only accountable for what we know we did in this life, but also for the consequences of each and every action, whether good or bad. Ustadh Nouman says that on that day it is the weight of those ramifications that will either send us to janna or to jahannam.

And now Allah says no, but you know what you have to bring, don't you?
It's not even about the book you will recollect, you will remember, even if you haven't read the book, you know, the human beings will be given the book in the centers will have books in their left hand and behind their back or avahi. behind their back. There's two problems, if it's in your left hand, you know, when you're in trouble. But if it's behind your back, you don't know how much trouble
because it's bad. But if you open it up, at least you know how bad you don't even know how bad is behind your back. You get it? Now, if that's the case, how do you know? Well already answered that question in the previous surah Yo, my attacker role in Sano masala a human being will remember completely everything they used to do. You don't even have to read the book, you already know what's inside it and your ultimate not so much about what they have to present for themselves. myjalah who How do daru Joshi how they want to bring it to make something to bring something forward?
Well, Marina ulimate nafsa Master Xu says something I think very insightful here. So I'll share that with you. Whoa, solo yekini be mala Mia cuando hace el mundo haka, Amal, and that he cannot be ha, Ashton, a person will do all kinds of things in this life, but there's a bunch of stuff they just don't remember. And they don't even remember what the consequences of those actions were, how serious those actions were. Or maybe they were too small of a deed for them to even think it was a big deal. And so what does the law say? He or what does it mean? I should say bamboo moto moto? g, some deeds he did. He knew that he did it. But he never thought that it was actually something bad
where he thought he was doing something good. Or it was something good when he didn't think it was that good. Like, we don't truly put a value on something at the time. You know, and that may be the reality of it will become clear on that day. Then babalu Ma, boo, boo, boo. It could be some things are you know what, what you did, but you have no idea of what came after it.
You know, you yelled at your mom, and you left the house. And what came after it is your younger brother who's eight years old, yelled at his mom
and learned that from you. And you created a pattern of behavior for him, you don't care, you just did what you did. There are consequences you left behind that you will have to pay for you. It was Muslim time. And you were at Costco because there's a Costco over there. So you were at Costco. And you may not this Costco because you just come to the machine, but some other Costco, some unfortunate Costco that doesn't have a machine next to them. And as a matter of time, and you started praying in the parking lot. You just presume I would have been left. But somebody else saw you doing yoga in the parking lot
and got confused. And they made a video of you doing it. And they stopped it and said, What's this guy doing? And somebody said, that's the Muslim prayer. And he's like, well, I'm gonna look that up. And then he looks it up. And he starts becoming more curious about Islam. And then he becomes a Muslim. And then he decides to learn Arabic, and then he memorizes the Quran. And then he becomes a scholar of Islam. And then 1000s of people become Muslim through him.
And all of that, you just bring it up
and you don't even know what it is you just print it and you you printed left and you come before a law. Yeah, like that day. I did pray mother, Louisiana. That one was a pretty, pretty valuable Muslim. Have you had there? Because that one got you into general that Muslim? I was like going hula hoop
goes on. Like, I was like in a hurry? Like, how did that one get me into
agenda. And so are people are there things behind that deed that Allah reward you for that you don't even know you didn't even earn it, but a lot tied those things to you. He created goodness out of you that you didn't even earn. And you will see those on that day.
And of course, for the negative to worry about Luma funan when some things you just you're completely unaware that you even did them. You're just unaware you just you know, you walked in, somebody walked into the machine, you just smile at them, Hey, how are you? And then you left? You're like, I thought Muslims were crazy. Well, this guy's smile. The first thing I remember is a Muslim smiling at me. And that's when I knew
I was just happy cuz I had a donut, I just I didn't even know you're completely unaware. And that that you'll be rewarded for on that day. And so this statement, not so much after that, we will truly know what we're worth on that day. We want to do the kind of good deeds that create a ripple effect. That the point I'm trying to make here. We want to show Allah, you know, because my life is limited, yours is limited. We want to be able to do the kind of good deeds that create a chain of other good deeds beyond ourselves. They create a chain of goodness beyond ourselves. So the kajaria could be teaching somebody could be helping somebody could be leaving a good example. You know, and
in any form that you do that you are actually investing in your own goodness, because quite honestly, how do we know that our sins don't outweigh our good deeds?
How do we know our own good deeds are just not the quality that that's worth saving before Allah? How do we know what our prayer is worth? Everybody here is going to pray for mother and child Lota. But not everybody's prayer will count the same way we want, we need something that's going to expand and perpetuate that investment. This brings us to what the prophets lysozyme was asked, you know, these great events will happen. And somebody came to the prophets I said them and said, matassa, when is the our once judgment taken to happen? Now previously, you learn what did the law tell the Prophet FEMA and Dominica? What is it? What in what capacity? Are you supposed to answer that
question? Who are you to answer that question? Why should you make any mention of that? That's where a lot No. And
then it's knowledge is with Allah. And he's not confused about what it is and he won't forget. Now, you will know, Robbie Williams samosa said, you know, what is the Prophet say when somebody asked him when his judgment day and he said, Mother,
what did you prepare for it?
That's the only answer he gave. He answered the question with a question. Some questions deserve to be answered with a question. Just go back and think, because some some questions are formed. Some questions are an indication of what you're thinking about. And when you respond to them with a question. You're saying, actually, you need to be thinking about something else instead.
Sometimes answering the question is more harmful? answering it with a question is more beneficial, and allows me because of those who asked the right kinds of questions, or at the very least we are around people who can guide our questions in a better direction. So that concludes the first major section of the surah after Salah we'll continue with the latter the second and the third parts barakallahu li walakum wa salaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
