I saw he was ill Jana, we're in Iran. Now, a friend will drag you, either to paradise or to hellfire. And the company we choose here will likely be who we're going to be resurrected with and who we ended up spending eternity with. So choose your friends wisely doesn't just mean for the purpose of this world. In fact, to a greater extent, the next world, I always marvel at people that do heads together, or people that share Ramadan with each other, or people that share some sort of deep religious experience and they create these bonds that are unlike the bonds of anything else. Because just like loving Allah subhanaw taala is not like loving anyone else. Loving someone for the
sake of Allah is not like loving anyone else for the sake of anything else.
Witness available the low tide on who has a very touching story about our mother, it settled the low on. He says that one day I went to visit Aisha, and she was my aunt. And I wanted to ask her some questions. And I found her standing up praying, and she was reading Quran. And when she was reading these ayat, and she would cry, and she would make dua, and she would repeat the ayat and She'd cry, and she'd make your app. So they said that she was taking so long that I told myself let me go shop because I have some things to do. And then I'll come back later when she's done. So he said, I went to the souk. I did what I had to do, and I came back after a long time, and I found her reciting the
exact same idea. And it is an ayah from Surah toto Allah subhanaw taala says what ox Bella Bahama Allah bologna Tessa alone Carlu in Kuna cob Luffy early na mas Philippine Furman Allah who are Elena, while Aparna adabas simile, so we heard you showed the low on her reciting the last part of this, the ayah says that people start coming close to one another in Jana, and asking about each other. And they're curious if someone they loved made it, and if someone is missing. And so they start to say that we remember before where we used to fear a loss of Hannah to Anna together amongst our people. And Allah subhanaw taala has been gracious to us, and saved us from the torment of the
Fire. So I said all the low and he was repeating this last part over and over again, this conversation between friends in Jannah, where they say, how merciful was ALLAH to us, when he pardoned us and freed us, as we used to be amongst our people, those that believed in Allah subhanaw taala and feared him. Indeed, we used to call upon Allah subhanaw taala alone before and we used to fear him alone before. And Allah subhanaw taala is truly most kind and Most Merciful. Friends that used to worship Allah together, knew that they were strangers together in this dunya and now they're celebrating being the only people in Paradise because all of the people of paradise are people who
were righteous, even when they were in the midst of great wickedness. And so these conversations start to unfold, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, When the people of paradise enter it, then friends that used to worship Allah subhanaw taala. Together, they'll start to long for one another. And so what happens, the couch of one person will move to the couch of the other, and Allah subhanaw taala will bring them close together, and they will meet reclining on their couches, remembering their days, and a person will say to his friend, do you know what Allah subhanaw taala forgave us like when this was unlocked for us? And the friend will reply on such and
such day. And in such in such place, we call upon Allah subhanaw taala and He forgave us. So as you're looking back with each other, you know, what do you think was the moment was it later to Qatar? Was it the 27th night in the masjid together? Was it hedged together? When was it that Allah's pants out forgave us? And you know exactly the moment that in this dunya Allah subhanaw taala unlocked for you, the Jannah that you are now enjoying, and another narration the Prophet slice, and I'm said, among the delights of the people of Paradise will be that they visit one another on mounts and camels. And there'll be supplied with these noble horses with saddles that do
not defecate or urinate. And they ride them wherever they want to by the mercy of Allah subhanho to Allah. And this is not just true for friends that lived as contemporaries, because just like there are families across the generations that we spoke about, there are friends across generations as well.
Have you loved the Sahaba as if they were your own Sahaba as if they were your own companions. Now you get to go and visit them as you please the Sahaba that you use to long for now you long for them and you see them. And what are the people talk about what are these righteous friends talk about when they come together. Now a lot of it is what they used to do. A lot of it is catching up on old memories. And that's part of the joy of the people of Paradise because certainly this isn't wickedness. Maybe they are reflecting on how they were before they got religious and maybe they're just reflecting on old times and old jokes. But rites is friends also discuss things that they used
to discuss in this life. And so have no claim Rahim Allah, He says that imagine the students of knowledge, the people that used to care so much about religious knowledge, continuing their discussions in Jannah. So you're trying to understand the Quran and the Sunnah, certain filthy things, certain episodes of the Sierra, you're trying to get all of that in Jana together and you're continuing that discussion there. Except now when you want to know if a hadith authentic, you walk over to the narrator who's literally right there. And if you want to know about an element of the Sierra, go ask the prophets lie. Some are asked the person that it involves, it's just a part of
their joy. And even though I am Rahim, Allah said, this type of discussion for people who love the deen people who love them, is the sweetest thing in this world. And now it's even better in Jannah. And he said, that's only for the students of knowledge, and Subhanallah there's something very beautiful here that the prophets lysosome said that circles of knowledge are gardens of Paradise in this earth. And now, those circles of knowledge are continuing literally in the gardens of Paradise. Now, unlike family when it comes to friends, sometimes you have some friends that are not just going to be on a different level in terms of paradise, but you'll have some friends that are in hellfire.
And it's not like you all get joined together by virtue of one person being in a particular part of paradise. However, intercession is still a thing and you want to be a person who is interceding, not being interceded for, and the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, he said that there are some people who enter into hellfire, and they will remain they're never dying and never living. But there are others who will enter Hellfire because of their sins. And they will be burnt inside of hellfire until they turn like coals. And then permission will be granted for Chef out for intercession. And they will be brought out of it in groups, and there'll be spread over the side of the rivers of paradise. And
then it will be said, yeah, that agenda at a field. What are they him, oh, people of paradise, pour water on them. And so some of the people of Paradise will come and they'll pour water on those people, and they will grow like seeds and a valley after a flood. And the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam he said fairly there are some people who will be brought out of the fire having been burnt all over except for their faces. And they will enter paradise with all traces of the fire removed after their friends pour water on them. And the people of Paradise will say, these are the people of hellfire who were brought out and admitted into Jannah. They are a Jana Miyun. Now, as
Pamela this is something very significant because it really speaks to this idea of pulling your friend out, have a hard time, you know, we talked about a sloth he was a friend is someone who drags. Don't just be someone that hangs out with righteous people that can drag you right. But also think of how you can save others and the reward the tremendous reward of being a source of hedaya being a source of guidance for others, while seeking the best companions who are upon guidance your entire life, looking for the effect that they have upon you in this dunya and looking for their possible intercession to at least elevate you, and Paradise. And that's why the prophets lice and
I'm said, adhere to the gemera adhere to the community. Beware of separation. For indeed che Bong is with the one who is alone, and he is further away from to whoever wants the best place in paradise, then let him stick to the gemera Let him stick to the community. And so if you want the best companions of paradise, then love and follow the Prophet slice them and his companions as if they were your contemporaries. Maybe now they actually will be your contemporaries without any fear of ever losing.
