Of all the people that you want to celebrate with its family, you think of family at your graduation, you think of family at your wedding. And there's nothing more beautiful than the idea of graduating into Jannah. Together. It's the companionship and celebration with those who were a part of your journey in this life. And in some cases, even those who came before you from whom you descended. You see Jana would not be Jana, without some sense of family and you can't get to Jana, unless you treat your family in a way that Allah subhanaw taala is pleased

00:00:49--> 00:01:32

Janna two I didn't get the whole Luna ha woman Salah Hammond about him was watching him with the reality of Allah subhanaw taala says, everlasting gardens which they shall enter along with all of those who acted righteously, from among their parents from among their spouses, and from among their offspring. Let's start with the parents. A young man comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he says Ya rasool Allah, I want to go out and fight alongside you. And the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam says, Do you have a mother? And he said, Yes, the prophet slice and I'm said, fetishism her for inland Jana Totteridge later, then go stay with her because paradise is beneath

00:01:32--> 00:02:14

her feet and Subhanallah another young man comes out to strive alongside the prophets, Allah, Allah Hardy was salam. And he says, you also would Allah I left my parents crying, and the prophets lysozyme said, then go back to them, and make them laugh the same way that you made them cry. So yes, Jana is under your mom's feet. And the prophets lie. Selim said that your father is the middle gate of Jana. So either squander the opportunity or take advantage of it? And do you really want to try to get into Jana through a side door around your father or anywhere above your mom? This is where you have to exert yourself. And when we think about this idea of parents wanting their

00:02:14--> 00:02:55

children to be the coolness of their eyes, raising their children and righteousness, and then those children growing up to want to please Allah subhanaw taala by being the coolness of the eyes of their parents, there's this beautiful reunion that takes place in Jamaica. And Allah subhanaw taala says, When Lavina Armano what Tibet whom do RIA to whom the Iman and Heppner became the Reatta. Home, warmer alert now Humann Amelie Himanshi and those who believe and whose offspring follow them and faith to them, shall we join their offspring and we shall not decrease the reward of their deeds and anything? What does the speaking about? Look at the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala because no two

00:02:55--> 00:03:32

people are going to be equal in righteousness. What if the parents are more righteous than the children but the children still make it to Jana? What if the children are actually more righteous than the parents, even Ambassador the Allahu Anhu Ummah, he said, Allah will raise the offspring of the believer, to the same degree as them even if they are lower than them in terms of good deeds, because that brings joy to the heart of Allah subhanaw taala serving so he recites the eye. So if the parents are higher, Allah will put them at ease by bringing the children higher. And if the children are higher than Allah subhanaw taala will join them at the higher level, but Allah will

00:03:32--> 00:04:12

never decrease anyone out of His mercy and out of his generosity. Now, how much does this extend to? What about early ancestors? What about their righteousness many and in that, they said that this is of the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala upon us that this doesn't just include your parents, but it could be your grandparents, your great grandparents, or someone along the line. Imagine this reunion and Jana, with your great ancestors. It might be that you descended from us a hobby from a companion, and you get a chance to not only meet your parents or your grandparents, but your ancestors all the way up, you might be related to one of the heroes of Islam, or to someone who

00:04:12--> 00:04:54

converted to Islam as a result of them. And all of the descendants including yourself, were of those who pray to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and Allah joins you at the highest level possible. Imagine somewhere down the line, your children's children's children, maybe a few 100 years of Descendants of believers. And Allah subhanaw taala joins you all together. And this is not just where it stops. It's also those that you love that aren't necessarily directly your descendants. Allah subhanaw taala gives us another gift and that is the gift of being able to intercede on behalf of our family members. You can intercede on behalf of your believing relatives who may not be in Geneva. But even

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

those who will never make it will not cause you sadness because in Jannah there is no sign

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

So even if you couldn't intercede on behalf of some, Allah subhanaw taala is not going to disappoint you on that day when you enter into His paradise. Now what about spouses? You know, even Adam it has Salam needed a companion and Eve. And so the prophets lie some said in an authentic hadith. No one is single and Janna. So if you didn't have a spouse in this dunya you will certainly have a spouse and Jana, and Allah says, Enter you and your spouse's and tomb as logical eating together, enjoying the couches together, enjoying the new homes together, enjoying the memories together in uncertain now Hoonah in sha you're a new creation all together person and personality. But I don't know, when

00:05:44--> 00:06:19

the Epcot like You're like newlyweds urban at Taraba and of the same age. So that's if you are not married. And that's if you were married. And someone might say, well, what if me and my spouse had a troubled relationship? So I was like, I don't want to be with that particular person. And I'm kind of being patient with it right now. in Jannah, you're different. Don't worry, you're not going to remember the fights, you're only going to remember the good memories. Remember the prophets, Isaiah said that one dip in Jannah. And a person is told how to look at books and books. Have you ever seen any sadness and they don't even remember anything of this dunya that troubled them. And just like

00:06:19--> 00:07:02

your imperfections are gone, so are theirs. And when you're in Jannah, you will miss each other a lot. Even evito Baba, he narrates that you miss your spouse 70 times more every time you apart from one another. And you're in that much more joy every time you come back to each other. Now what if a woman was married to more than one husband at different points in her life? According to one narration, she would be with the last of her husband's as a husband, according to the majority, which would be the wisdom of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, his wives not marrying after him. But still all the believers celebrate together. And no one is sad or feels left out some of the

00:07:02--> 00:07:43

scars. They said that perhaps she could pick which one she wants to be married to. Some such she would have the best of her husband's as a husband. But again, she would certainly be pleased. And by the way, you might see your ex and Jana and you won't want to throw anything at them in general, everyone will be okay and Jen graduates don't exist in Jannah. And neither does jealousy. These are worldly features. So when Allah subhanaw taala talks about spouses and the maidens of Jannah we can't project our worldly feelings onto a Jana reality. Everyone has their happiness in gender, and everyone is pleased both and their desire for companionship, and intimacy. That's Paola. There's

00:07:43--> 00:08:24

another special thing here, which is specifically and just like we're talking about the day of judgment for people whose children died early, one of the most difficult tests in this life. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the children of the believers will be in paradise being cared for by Ibrahim ani has Salam and Sarra until they give them back to their parents on the day of judgment. And the prophets lie some said about his own son, Ibrahim, when he died. He said there's a wet nurse for him. Jana is Pamela so it's not just the beach with him the house of praise that you have for being patient when you lost that child in this life. It's also the child

00:08:24--> 00:09:05

themselves. Meeting you once again. And Malcolm rodina Rahim Allah and the famous dream that he had about his daughter who passed away, he saw the children waiting under a special dune of musk for their parents, and the Prophet slice and um, said, they wait at the gates of paradise, and they refuse to enter Jannah without their parents and he said, Sal, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, that one of them will meet their parents and grab their cloth or their hands and the prophets. I said, just like I'm holding on to your cloth, just like I'm holding onto your garment, and will not let go until Allah subhanaw. Taala admits the parents into Jannah. And someone might say, does that mean my

00:09:05--> 00:09:44

children never grow up? I've been asked this question, do they stay as kids in Jannah? And the answer is no. You wanted to see your children grow up in this dunya. Now you get to see them grow up in Jannah. And so their children at the time of resurrection their children at the time of the reckoning. But once we enter into Jannah we all become 33 years old. And so you get to see your child all grown up in Jannah in a way that's pleasing to you. So now you can dwell in the house of praise that was built for you together and you can praise Allah subhanaw taala together

00:09:45--> 00:09:52
