Channel: Omar Suleiman
Allah, in His supreme mercy, does not punish us beyond the worth of a sin, but His measure for our good deeds is increased beyond calculation, leading to even greater reward. What makes our good deeds special enough to be multiplied on our scales?
alas parotitis says methadone Lavina you and Fiona and while on visa vie the lie can Mathari habit in embittered savasana. But it's equally some bulletin me to hubba wala who lie fully manga SHA, Allah who is here in it, that the example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed that then grows the seven pods. And in each one of those pods, you have 100 grains, so a total of 700. And Allah multiplies his reward for whom He wills for Allah subhanaw taala is vast and all knowing now with your character, you want to develop these qualities that effectively serve as those pods and that they bear all sorts of good deeds that stem from those qualities. And that's
what a MACOM is, a station is in Tuscumbia that you reach this place to where good becomes your nature because You've nurtured a certain good quality that just keeps on producing fruit over and over again. And in the Mercy of Allah who rewards all of that. Even a single good deed is multiplied way more than what it technically is worth. Whereas on the other hand, Allah will never punish anyone with a sin with more than what that sin is.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Lucha Kitab al Hassan it was say, verily, Allah has recorded good and bad deeds, and he made them clear. So he said, Whoever intends to do a good deed but does not do it, then Allah will still record it as one complete good deeds. And if He intends to do that good deed and he follows through, then Allah subhanaw taala will record it as 10 Good deeds up to 700 times as much as Allah wills and then if He intends to commit a sin, but he doesn't follow through, then not only does Allah not punish him, Allah will record for him one complete good deed because he would have held himself back and repented. Now if he goes forth and he
does that sin, then Allah subhanaw taala will record one single bad deed. And when you read this hadith, you obviously marveled at the mercy of Allah. But have you ever wondered what makes a deed go from 10 to 700 and beyond first, the sincerity of that deed, undoubtedly, which we already covered in multiple scenes, then it's making sure you don't shortchange yourself by not doing a deep fully. So for example, what is a Salam alikoum worth versus a Salaam Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh A man once came to the Prophet size seven when he said Salam RTKL rasool Allah, the prophets lie some responded they said asuran 10 Good deeds. Then another man came to the Prophet
slice on him and said, a Salam or Aleikum, wa Rahmatullah peace be on to you and the mercy of Allah, the Prophet slice, and M said Sharon 20 Good deeds. Then another man came and said a Salam or Aleikum, Warahmatullah wabarakatuh may the peace of Allah be upon you His mercy and His blessings and the prophets lie, some said, Fela Thune, 30 good deeds. So they're all technically the same, you're functionally giving salam, but it's the most complete one that is going to be the most rewardable on the scale. The same thing is true with the Quran, every head of every letter is 10 good deeds. So if as you are reading your daily recitation, if you can read a little bit more, a
little bit further, always go past a little bit, because that little extra letter is going to be huge for you, on the Day of Judgment, finished, the surah finished the section, whatever it needs to be. Now personally, I wondered when I read this hadith, what is it about 700? Are there any deeds that are specified, as having 700 rewards is there like a a Muslim 700 Club very far from the one that's known to people and it's quite beautiful that you find that the deeds that the Prophet slice and I'm specified as being worth 700 All surround something that was spent with difficulty for the sake of Allah. Hence, the idea that mentions the green that becomes 700. And this was especially the
comfort to those companions who were poor and they didn't have much to give a blue Masaru that I'm sorry, a lot of the A lot of times I know he narrates that this man brought to the prophets. I send them a sheet Campbell, and that's all he had. And it had its rope through its nose ring. So that's all he had to give the prophets lie Selim. And he said Yasuda, Allah this is to be devoted for the sake of Allah. I'm giving this for the cause of Allah. The prophets lie. Some said to him, that on the Day of Judgment, you will have for this one she camel 700 sheep, camels, each coming forth with a rope through its nose ring. If an ambassador Allah Tala and Houma he commented on the idea about
seven pods bearing 100 grains he's
said any money that is spent FISA beat Allah in the Cause of Allah, and that includes the money that is spent on Hajj. He said the Durham's will be multiplied by 700 for you on the Day of Judgment, and then there is one deed and this deed is the one deed that has been attributed to the over 700. Now, Allah azza wa jal can reword any deed more than 700. And may Allah make that the case with our deeds right, he could take the smallest thing that you do, and turn it into beyond 700 times on the Day of Judgment. But the one deed that the Prophet slicin I'm specifically connected to this is actually the one deed that you're doing right now. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this saw and
he felt Pat's on the fasting person has two moments of joy. When he breaks his fast he rejoices, obviously at breaking his fast, but the real joy is when he meets Allah subhanho To Allah with that fast. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, every good deed of the son of Adam, will be multiplied between 10 and 700 times, but fasting Allah azza wa jal says Assam Lee will enter HDB except for fasting, that is for me, and I'm going to reward it, especially I'm going to reward it in ways that are further from the spectrum and further from the imagination of any human being and of any sincere believer. And the reason why they're not mentioned that the one who fast will be given
this reward without measure is that fasting requires slobin it requires patience, and those who are patient will be given reward without measure. So when Allah Subhana Allah says in the My UF, wasabi Luna as rhombi lady ASAP, that Allah rewards the patients without measure, while So establish fasting is patience. So look at how amazing the reward is on the day of judgment. And by the way, this reward is not just restricted to Ramadan, this is any day of fasting. And so when you think of a deed that you want to bring you closer to Allah on the Day of Judgment, that you want to bring you joy on a day where most people are scared, and that you want to weigh on your scale in a way that
breaks every measure that is known to us. Then keep up this habit of sia well after the month
