Episode Notes

Your faith will fluctuate on the waves of life. This is normal, but no matter what happens, never let go of the simplest of phrases: ‘La ilaha illah Allah.’ Bearing witness to the reality of the One True God will save you in life and, on the Day of Judgment, will outweigh a mountain’s worth of your sins.

Nothing can outweigh the Name of Allah, not here, not on the Day of Judgment, nowhere. The purpose of this world is La Ilaha illa Allah, and the more that we depart from living by that with our deeds of righteousness as a people as humanity, the less time the world has. So when you get to the point where corruption is rampant, and people no longer have any conscience, and they don't even say the name of Allah anymore, at that point, the world no longer has a purpose to exist, and that's when it perishes. And that's one of the meanings of what the Prophet sallallahu it was setting them said, obstacle baiting Allah to sha Allah Kulu che in Mahalo, Allah belsito The most truthful of words,

00:00:43--> 00:00:47

that a poet has spoken, everything but Allah is perish.

00:00:57--> 00:01:40

One advice I give to someone, especially someone who is struggling with their faith, do not take La ilaha illallah for granted. Faith in its nature is always going to be up and down because either way and most it increases and decreases. Even some of the companions complain to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about not being able to maintain the same level of faith everywhere that they were. But towards the end of times the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when people wake up, they may wake up as believers and go to sleep as disbelievers or they go to sleep as believers and then they wake up as disbelievers. So the time in which a person sways between absolute belief and

00:01:40--> 00:02:20

absolute unbelief is literally a day and night. And you really can't take the testimony of faith that you like and love for granted. Now learning that Allah is not only proven by the deeds that you do, it's also protected by them. The more that you act on that Allah Allah, the less likely it is to leave your heart, especially when you need it most at the time of death. How valuable is it for you to show up on the Day of Judgment saying that ILA the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Whoever says that Allah Allah sincerely from his heart, Dakota Jana, he will certainly enter paradise at some point. And in one narration, the prophets lie some said hello I'm Allahu Allah, you

00:02:20--> 00:03:03

know, Allah has forbidden the fire from that person. But no one can say La Ilaha illa Allah sincerely, without sincerely at least trying to please Allah subhanaw taala and it's the deeds that follow that confirm the sincerity of the statement that precedes all good. Now we've already covered the value of to spear and to Hamid saying Subhan Allah and sing it hamdulillah on the MISA. And half of the bin Raja Rahim Allah has this beautiful tie in between those phrases and this phrase of la ilaha illa Allah, He says, As for every Nirma every blessing, you pay for it by saying and living and hamdulillah All Praise and thanks are due to Allah. He says As for Jana, you pay for it by

00:03:03--> 00:03:48

saying and living La Ilaha illa Allah and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said ophthalmologic La ilaha illallah wa Flora Alhamdulillah the best form of Vicus the best form of remembrance is La Ilaha illa Allah there is no God worthy of worship except Allah. And the best form of dua of supplication is that hamdulillah is when you say all praises and thanks are due to Allah subhanho wa taala. So the skills are set up on the Day of Resurrection. And the prophets lie Selim says that a man is brought forth and he's placed on one side, and everything that was recorded against him is placed on the other side. And then that skill tips against and it has some alcohol

00:03:48--> 00:04:31

for now. Send him to the fire. And just as he's about to be taken out of the scale and cast into the fire, he turns back and a voice cries out from the presence of the Most Merciful, saying Lata agile do not hasten, there's still something left for him. Then Allah subhanaw taala will say to him directly. Helton Kira Mahadasha, do you deny any of this any of the sins that our sinking you do you deny them? And he will say now you're up? No, oh my Lord. Allah would say DID MY ANGELS record anything incorrectly? Have they been unjust to you? And he would say, No, Oh Allah, they've been just, then he will say apart from that. Do you have any good deeds to hold with you to hold your

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

weight on this day? And the man will be terrified and he'll say no, oh my lord. And Allah subhanaw taala will respond and say in la cara Indiana has said that we're in now Lavon Malaika Leung, that indeed you have some good deeds with us. And you will not be treated unjustly today. And so this be taka this card is brought out and on this card is written a shadow Allah Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

Hola, hola. Hola, Mohammed Abdullah. So it's just the Shahada. And he will say, Oh Allah, what is this card compared with all of these scrolls these records of sin that are placed on the other side of the scale and tipping me towards hellfire. And Allah will respond and say, in Nicola Tobler, you will not be treated unjustly. And so the scrolls are placed on one side. And Allah takes that card with the shahada, and places it on the other side. And the prophets lie Selim said that your scrolls of sins will go flying into the air, and that card of la ilaha illallah will weigh the right side all the way down. See now the value of La Isla de la, no matter what happens, don't lose that card.

00:05:49--> 00:06:34

Low faith is not the same as no faith and Shavon will try to convince you to tear that card up because you're feeling low. Hold on to that ilaha illa. Even when you are struggling to live by it. And what does it mean when Allah says in Nicola Tulum, you're not going to be wrong, especially that this action of Allah subhanho to Allah to save this person on that day, not only is it far away from injustice, it is a mercy that is entirely unexpected that one card does away with all of your records of sin. But again, remember in Nikola Tesla, you will not be wronged. And you have to then remember as we get into the scariest part of the Day of Judgment why my wallet Maha Mala well that

00:06:34--> 00:06:47

can cannot and fossa, homeopathy moon, you're in regards to those that fail on that day. It wasn't a lot that wronged them, but it was they who wronged themselves by turning away from such a forgiving Lord.

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

Man
