00:00:44--> 00:00:53

that night, that last part of the night, okay. The last part of the night pipe that the book is authored by hope

00:00:54--> 00:00:55

it will Roger What's up

00:00:58--> 00:00:59

al Hemley

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

it's now fair.

00:01:06--> 00:01:07

No cheating.

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

Says name.

00:01:11--> 00:01:17

Type so yeah, so my dad was the nickname of his grandfather who's a man but what's his name?

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

His name was the same as his grandfather.

00:01:24--> 00:01:35

by a man even who even achmad even have drama, but that abstract man, right? Was his grandfather, isn't they his nickname was was Elijah.

00:01:37--> 00:01:54

And he's the one who Eben logic and his grandson used to attend his grandfather's lessons. Yeah. And he used to attend lessons of his grandfather. Something when he was as young as three years old, for sure. When he was four. He studied with him first. In what city

00:01:56--> 00:01:57

and Baghdad right because

00:01:58--> 00:02:11

Roger was born in Baghdad, after the death of his grandfather, that's when a family moved to where they mesh damasks Okay, it was it was born in what year?

00:02:15--> 00:02:25

3736, after the Hegira one of his most famous sheiks was who we've studied many of his books, huh. Even Okay, and look, I have died and what year

00:02:30--> 00:02:30

or

00:02:34--> 00:02:38

so definitely after 736 Yes, that's, it's great.

00:02:43--> 00:02:51

This stuff is I'm not just doing it to test you. You know, if you're a history buff, there's reasons for this stuff. It's important that you know,

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

when they will tell you on day

00:02:57--> 00:03:03

751 751 Like, how was it even Rajib when it no claim that

00:03:06--> 00:03:13

14 or 15? Okay, he studied with no claim for a year solid, like, straight

00:03:14--> 00:03:33

Lezama who, right and even will claim it, you know, at that at that point in his life was good to follow. And he was he was free for teaching. Like that's, that's what he did, and have administrative responsibilities and so forth. So it was just study and he had a great effect on intelligence as it comes out in his writings.

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

Play.

00:03:37--> 00:03:38

mesh.

00:03:39--> 00:03:51

So from what we covered last week, what is the major also, or principle or foundation that this book seeks to establish?

00:03:53--> 00:04:06

Paradise bases, that a person does not enter Paradise, by his deeds alone, independently, one's deeds, do not enter him into Paradise by

00:04:08--> 00:04:48

the author shallow we're gonna get to today is why that is so important. Right? I know, last week, some people were saying, Well, you know, they were trying to get to the end, well, why this step? What's this mean? And why is this so important? What we're gonna get there. That is the point of reading a book is that you actually go through the process so that you appreciate when you get the answer to your questions. Otherwise, you're just spoon fed everything. Right? It the problem with being spoon fed is that it usually goes in one ear and out the other. Yes, maybe there's going to be some benefit from it. You learn from it at the time. But by going through the process of reading, it

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

sticks with Nilla. And this is why what we're doing is not a class in the sense that we're taking every single word dissecting it breaking it down. It's a guided reading we want to read

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

Whatever you have said, we want to benefit from what he says in the light. And there won't be a lot of additions to what he says, but there will be clarification along the way, meeting the lady Tada. So with that being said, Inshallah, let's pick up from

00:05:15--> 00:05:42

before we get there, just so that we can recap everything. A person does not interject, this is also the foundation, the principle that Roger was establishing is that a person by his deeds alone? Does not intergender one's deeds are not enough, independently to enter a person's agenda. What evidence Does the author use to establish this we can use broad categories of evidence.

00:05:44--> 00:06:10

He so he uses first he starts off with a hadith. He starts off with a hadith. And he mentioned two different narrations of the hadith of Ebihara to narrations of the hadith of Asia are the low tide and it's and why does he start with the with the Hadith and not the iron even though we know that the Quran and in terms of its strength, if you will, of proof is stronger than the Hadith? I start with the Hadith here.

00:06:13--> 00:06:34

I need the normal way that a person would start the normal way that a person will bring evidence they will start what I had from the court if you don't have to talk about who narrated it, what book is in which which author said it was authentic or what you know, scholar Hadid said is authentic. You don't have to do it with the prime spring i Why don't you start with the ahaadeeth and dimension is yes.

00:06:38--> 00:06:40

come from everywhere.

00:06:42--> 00:06:48

Because that's not that's not why he started with the with the with the Hadith? Yes.

00:06:51--> 00:07:17

Because the Hadith are explicit explicitly mentioned this rule or that that he's that he's attempting to establish right you don't you don't there's no. What they will call is symbolic or need to go back and try to derive the ruling. Right. It's right there in front of you to prophesy Salam said exactly that none of you will enter Jannah because of his deeds, right, by his deeds.

00:07:19--> 00:07:22

Okay. But then the author mentions

00:07:23--> 00:07:34

three passages from the Quran that we've talked about last week. We are now on page 19 with the author Rahmatullah here it says some of the seller said

00:07:35--> 00:07:36

yes, followship.

00:07:39--> 00:07:40

has

00:07:41--> 00:08:15

started start off by by by saying the author Rahim Allah to Allah says, but because it's important for especially with these types of sittings, that we learn the etiquette of reading the books of the scholars aloud, right reading them out loud, and we want to make diaphragms Subhanallah any event budget, we're benefiting from his knowledge and it's only fair that we make dua for him and say May Allah have mercy on him, right and inshallah that is beneficial to him and it's great. I was trying to get him

00:08:19--> 00:08:19

out

00:08:21--> 00:08:29

has given us to beat the book, but it unregistered Bismillah Zakka Loki, as your mic going?

00:08:31--> 00:08:31

Okay, perfect.

00:08:34--> 00:09:24

Some of the some of the self said, the hereafter consists either of the loss, forgiveness, or the fire. And this world is either a source of the loss protection or a source of destruction. On his deathbed, Muhammad even why is it bid farewell to his companion saying peace upon return, either to the fire or to the forgiveness of the law. So notice here, the author after mentioned that hadith and the is from the Quran, he mentioned some of the statements of the seller which reinforce his interpretation of the text. And that is because here as some of them said, I've said the hereafter consistent either laws forgiveness, or the fire not notice he didn't say either your good deeds or

00:09:24--> 00:09:37

the fire or even gender or the fire and he's taught he mentioned the laws forgiveness because a person doesn't get to agenda without Allah's forgiveness and this is the point this is why the author has mentioned these statements from from the setup.

00:09:38--> 00:10:00

Okay. So, up until this point, the author has established his his proof. Now, he wants to mention some of the some of what could be understood to be a counter argument, if you will, meaning that there are texts where Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

was Alice's and to paradise

00:10:03--> 00:10:32

for what you used to do be mad Quantum Time be mad Quantum Time at all based on what you used to do type so how do we understand these? I had these particular texts that may seem to contradict the point that the author has already made, Are we clear on it? And he, what we're trying to do is understand the reading like guided reading, why is the author now going to mention these things? Right? So,

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

but the key is that as for the sake of Allah,

00:10:38--> 00:10:42

whose meaning is that is the garden you will be made to inherit for what you did.

00:10:44--> 00:11:02

And the next verse, and the next is the meaning of the meaning of the verse is eat and drink with relish for what you did before in days gone by. The sky is different concerning the meaning of this falling into two opinions. Okay, where's the what's the problem?

00:11:04--> 00:11:11

I'm genuinely asked, was this yes, there might be a contradiction between

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

where were

00:11:15--> 00:11:19

given us not some of the seller were to prophesy Salam said,

00:11:21--> 00:12:07

your deeds won't enter you to paradise. And then these eyes to say enter Paradise, which you used to do. How do we Okay, we got the problem. Okay, let's now let's look at how the scholars interpreted that he said there's two different interpretations. Not one entry into paradise is accorded by His mercy. But the assignment of ranking and station in Paradise is done in accordance to the deeds one performed. Admin. Oh, yay, Anna said they were of the opinion that salvation from the fire occurs through the forgiveness of Allah. interest into paradise occurs by His grace and the appoint and the apportioning of ranking occurs in accordance to one's deeds. Okay, so this is one interpretation.

00:12:07--> 00:12:33

Ivanova, Yanina milady. Ivanova Yana died in 198, Willow Adam, but he lived for a long time. So he reached the Jonnie some of the younger of the TV. Right, some of the younger ones for most of the TV. So even though he ain't said they were of the opinion, I think that gives the the

00:12:35--> 00:12:48

indication that this is not like one person's opinion or two people's opinion, but that this was something that was widespread, not that there was a demand and that there was consensus amongst them. But but that this was not a strange opinion.

00:12:49--> 00:13:44

That salvation from the fire, which is what and the jet, right, Len Eun Ji, I hadn't many Kamalu none of your actions will save him. Okay. So they were of the opinion that salvation from the fire occurs through forgiveness from Allah. Okay. Entry into paradise. So that's from Montreal to La Santa Ana. Entry into paradise occurs by Allah azza wa jal, his father, his grace, okay. But the ranks in paradise, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He talked about the the ranks of the people in paradise, how some will look up at the, at those lofty stations, and he, as if they were looking at far away stars, because that's the distance and in between some of the rites of paradise. So, the

00:13:44--> 00:13:53

ranks are apportioned according to, to deeds. So when Allah subhana, Allah says, For what you used to do, be mad come from time alone,

00:13:54--> 00:14:15

then that's referring to that, that those actions are referring to what will apportion a person's Weinke and Paradise not that they will enter because of those these type, that's one interpretation. Now, next, number two, that that bad which has been mentioned in his sayings, for what you did know

00:14:16--> 00:14:43

as this right the man whom to whom time alone, a B man is left to fill a YAML Hadiya for what you did before in days gone by is the bat used to indicate causality, suburb or suburb. Hence, the meaning is that Allah has appointed deeds to be the means for entry into paradise the bad which has been assigned in his struggle Allah whether he was not assigned but the bad wood which has been the gate negated

00:14:45--> 00:15:00

saying actions alone will not cause one to enter Paradise is the back indicating comparison and compensation more Karbala and replacing like for like, more i with that? Yeah, and that change

00:15:00--> 00:15:16

means that instead of more Wila it should say more out what my lover what that's the daughter yes a lot no but it should there shouldn't be the WoW should have a fifth one and not a Kassala that's not what we want as Wow well

00:15:18--> 00:16:03

continue sir know the meaning of the Hadith would then be that none deserves entry into Paradise by virtue of the deeds he has performed. Through this explanation the erroneous understanding that paradise is the embarrassment of deeds is this belt, the understanding that the person by virtue of his deeds alone has the right to be granted entry into paradise, but Allah just as one who pays the price for a commodity has the right that would be given him by the seller okay. So stop there. So let us understand, okay, great, this explanation, this explanation makes clear that the actual entry comes to pass by the grace and mercy of Allah, and that deeds are cause for the entry into paradise.

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

Alright, somebody wants to summarize that for us.

00:16:07--> 00:16:14

So the second one, okay, so this, this just requires for us to understand this a little bit

00:16:15--> 00:16:36

from the usage of bat in the Arabic language, right. So when the prophesy Salam said, None of you will enter Jannah be Amelie be Amelie, okay? So just be his actions. Just keep that little bear in mind be his actions, and then eat and drink,

00:16:37--> 00:16:44

eat and drink and Paradise be men be what you used to do.

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

So what the author is saying is that,

00:16:50--> 00:17:05

that the bat that's used in the Hadith of the Prophet, sorry, son of the one that the prophesy son was negating that you will enter B, and those actions that is bad and more Owwa or mokaba.

00:17:06--> 00:17:24

How's that used? That's used when we start talking about buying and selling? Okay, so I say for example, become Head, right? How much is how much is this? Had that be? Me? It's elf doula was $100,000. I think about two people, right?

00:17:27--> 00:17:30

They, they want this product is $100,000.

00:17:32--> 00:17:33

They go to the seller.

00:17:34--> 00:17:48

One of them he's like, Hey, I'm gonna give you but you won't even turn it over. I'd love to have it. The other one, he worked hard. You know, he was he tried to save up his money. But he can only get 50,000.

00:17:50--> 00:18:04

And he's saying, Look, this is what I got. I got $50,000. So the guy gives it to him for 50,000. He's the guy that didn't come with nothing. He's not giving them anything. Right? God comes with $50,000. Does he deserve a product that's worth 100,000? I don't

00:18:05--> 00:18:19

know. When he does something, he puts something forth. Okay. And he, but he doesn't deserve it. Okay. It's actually not a fair, it's not fair compensation for for the product that he's getting.

00:18:20--> 00:18:31

really clear on that so far. Okay. But because he had something, because he has something to put forth. What he put forth was the reason was a reason

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

that he got that particular product and that another person did

00:18:37--> 00:19:05

it. So so far, so, so good. Okay. All right. So think about that. It'll become clearer as we go along. But I just want you to put that concept in your head. Think about that as a person's actions. The actions that a person does is not enough to get them an agenda. But if a person doesn't even try, right, they're not doing anything. They're not even in the ballpark of having some of the reasons by which they may get that thing that they're desiring.

00:19:06--> 00:19:49

Okay, yes. Is it safe to say that Allah has the authority to give to give someone permission to enter because of what they did, but we don't have the permission to get what we're seeking the authority permission. I don't want to use those words right now. I think I think the concept is going to become a lot clearer as we get up to page 3536 And Sharla, which I mean, we still 15 pieces a week. So we want to work, we want to work to get there. I just want you to get this basic concept in your head of somebody buying something. What they have is not enough to get what they want, but it is in the ballpark. Right? It's one of the it's a a needs of them getting that thing that they

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

desire. Okay. So, what the promise of a Salam is negating in the Hadith according to this interpretation, he's negating that a person's D

00:20:00--> 00:20:23

eats, or appropriate compensation for gender. So if we look at gender as this product, I'm coming to purchase it. Okay? That the deeds no matter how much a person has done, it's not enough to, to get that product. We clear on that. Right? That's important to understand. And this is what the author is saying is being negated

00:20:25--> 00:20:45

what is being affirmed, okay? Is that the actions are a cause they are a means of that person entering gender, even though it's not enough, I want you to go back to page 20. And read number two again, follow along, is going to become clearer as we go. And then I want you to go back and read this yourself. Yeah, but

00:20:47--> 00:21:09

that the bad that the bad which has been mentioned and his sayings for what you did, for what you did before and days gone by, is the values indicate causality sub. Hence, the meaning is that Allah has appointed deeds to be the means for entry into paradise. So those these are a means for entering paradise, but they're not the price for Paradise.

00:21:10--> 00:21:55

Okay. All right, keep going. The bad which has been negated in his at least not believe me just put this stuff in your head when it all comes together at the end and be in the lead you'll have that lightbulb moment it's coming Shala now, the bear which has been negated in his Alayhi Salatu was Salam saying actions alone will not cause one to enter Paradise is the bat indicating comparison and compensation look on the left and replacing like for like mu our that Moran was gone? Yeah, the meaning of the Hadith would then be that none deserves entry into paradise, by virtue of the deeds he has performed. Keep that in mind, right? Do you highlight that keep going

00:21:56--> 00:22:09

through this explanation, the erroneous understanding that paradise is the embarrassed embarrassment of deeds is this spelled the word embarrassment is not something we tend to use as my

00:22:11--> 00:22:53

English, I mean, American English, maybe, maybe compensation seven is the word and in Arabic the price the value of compensation for, right, that paradise, right is is the compensation of one's deeds, that this becomes dispelled as if a person through the deeds that they have done have reached a level where their deeds are valued at the same value as paradise and therefore they switch this with that, right. So this, you know, this car is worth $50,000 You have $50,000 here you have a car here, you give the $50,000 You take the car, so it's a like for like it's equal. Well,

00:22:54--> 00:23:01

what's being dispelled here is that the deeds that a person does, they trade it off agenda is nice. Okay.

00:23:03--> 00:23:48

Is dispelled the understanding that the person by virtue of his deeds alone has the right to be granted entry into Paradise by a law, just as one who pays the price for a commodity has the right that it be given him by the seller. This explanation makes clear that the actual entry comes to pass by the grace and mercy of Allah and that deeds are cause for the entry into paradise. Very good, Zach, Okay, keep going. Therefore, actual entry into paradise is dependent upon the grace of the law, his forgiveness and mercy, He is the one who blessed the person with the means and the result of that means, hence entry is not a direct outcome of actions in and of themselves. It is recorded

00:23:48--> 00:24:39

in the sahih that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said Allah, blessed and exalted, said to Paradise, you are my mercy. I show my mercy through you. It should be to whomever I will have my servants continue Sir Yes. The servants have no right over him that he must render never neither in His presence is any effort budget wasted basically here. Oh yeah. So in, in the sight of Allah Subhana Allah no effort that is put forth by anybody will be wasted. If they Allah and Allah, Allah you'll do as you're on mercy, and Allah azza wa jal not cause the the edges of the good doors to go to waste. If they are punished, then by His justice, if they are in bliss, then by his beneficence,

00:24:40--> 00:24:42

he is the kind the best now.

00:24:45--> 00:24:45

Now,

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

we've established that Jana is not the price or is that there is no price that a person can pay that will allow them to deserve Jin J

00:25:00--> 00:25:00

it

00:25:02--> 00:25:05

we got a problem another problem about the come up that the author is gonna deal with

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

your favourite two by the way. Come on let's go.

00:25:09--> 00:25:11

Oh wow yes

00:25:18--> 00:25:27

okay Alhamdulillah is the embarrassment of every failure. What does that mean Alhamdulillah as the advertisement of every favor

00:25:29--> 00:25:41

some no colleague, Nima, so humble Allah is the price that we have to pay for every fake for every favorite you get asked to be. It has to be

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

paid for with Alhamdulillah.

00:25:45--> 00:25:48

That's the meaning of this title. All right.

00:25:49--> 00:26:15

It is said but have been given Shaheed reported at Husson as saying Alhamdulillah is the embarrassment of every favor. And La Ilaha INMO. Allah is the embarrassment for Paradise. In other words, it has an imbecile he is saying look late night Allah that you you pay that for it. And agenda is the commodity that you're buying with Leila, how we understand that.

00:26:17--> 00:26:23

It basically means that the agenda does have a price. And it's like Leila, okay.

00:26:25--> 00:26:38

The meaning of this statement has also been reported some so first of all, how would you respond to that? How would you respond to that alone? If it was just you just had that part? Forget what's coming next. Yes.

00:26:43--> 00:26:45

Okay, else,

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

strictly from an all solely perspective

00:26:52--> 00:26:53

is the state

00:26:57--> 00:27:06

how would you respond to if you have these Hadith I have from the Quran are the statements of the self that establish one thing.

00:27:09--> 00:27:18

And over here, you have a statement about hassled bursary, which seems to contradict you don't have figure you can't figure out any way to harmonize between Yeah.

00:27:21--> 00:27:22

Diana

00:27:24--> 00:27:35

Bismillah, listen closely, the statement of any tab ad is not proof in Islam. Oh, that's, that's the part I want you to understand.

00:27:37--> 00:27:48

If we have a statement of Allah, His prophet Isaiah salatu, was set in, and it's clear that the son of have interpreted those statements in a certain way.

00:27:49--> 00:27:53

Okay. And then you have a statement of somebody else from the TV

00:27:54--> 00:28:30

that contradicts that understanding. Okay, and you can't figure out how to harmonize. It's a very simple issue, just leave it as leave it, keep it moving. Right. Now, if inshallah with with proper understanding and hopefully you can figure out a way to harmonize between understanding it in a different light and just contextualize or decontextualized. So you didn't understand it properly or whatever. But ultimately, ultimately, there is legitimate differing amongst the setup on certain issues, right. None of these statements independently serve as proof and this man

00:28:31--> 00:28:36

so it makes people I had a Sunday night, people follow tariqa and or those like the

00:28:39--> 00:28:45

people will say, the meaning the meaning of the statement has also been reported from the prophet Elijah.

00:28:46--> 00:29:06

From the authority of Ennis, having gone and others even though the disadvantages of all these Hadith contain weaknesses, the meeting is supported by the saying of Allah. Okay, so we got the statement from Allah hustling bustling, right? Then it looks like there's some Hadith even though the week

00:29:07--> 00:29:08

then we got this iron

00:29:10--> 00:29:18

and the iron Allah Subhana Allah says in Allah has stood on me Nina and also home well and while at home be en Nila Hongjun.

00:29:20--> 00:29:28

Allah has bought he used the term but it's thought and we are talking about now buying and selling right. And we talked about the be

00:29:29--> 00:29:39

using that be for buying and selling. Allah has bought from the believers themselves and Fusa home What am wala na wealth

00:29:40--> 00:29:46

at what bn nella huajian So Jana is

00:29:47--> 00:29:56

is the commodity Allah Subhana Allah, Allah one Jana is is like the money here. Okay, Allah azza wa jal

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

uses Jenna

00:30:00--> 00:30:10

he purchases with Jenna as if it was money, the selves and the wealth of some people. So he buys their selves and their wealth and he gives them Jim.

00:30:13--> 00:30:19

Doesn't that sound like where's the Grace of Allah? Where's the forgiveness? Where's all of that? That's that's not being mentioned here.

00:30:21--> 00:30:25

Are we clear with a product where there's an apparent issue? Well, we all get it

00:30:28--> 00:30:33

tight backup backup, none of you will enter agenda

00:30:37--> 00:30:39

based solely on his deed

00:30:40--> 00:30:47

we got so far, even if that deeds includes Jihad dying for Allah Subhana Allah given all of one's wealth, even if includes that.

00:30:48--> 00:30:50

Yeah, so now, yes.

00:30:51--> 00:30:56

Fast forward, we all agree that that's what the promise is a fast forward.

00:30:58--> 00:31:01

We got this is the i says what?

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

Allah gives you Jenna.

00:31:07--> 00:31:34

With Jenna he buys yourself and your wealth. So if you give yourself and your wealth for the sake of Allah subhana Tada. Then you get Jen, there is no mention of Mercy of Allah, His forgiveness, his grace, none of that. Correct. Is that I'm saying we understand it. Okay. So that's the issue, and then the author is going to answer that, right? Because this appears to be contradictory to the premise that he's laid out. So now we have to understand

00:31:35--> 00:31:57

the question, please, we have to learn how to read this is why we're doing this. Alright. The author establishes an apprentice, he says, This is what it is that he's bringing you okay? If somebody says, Well, what about this? Now? We're going to answer that. So we already answered the other one, what was the first what was the first counter argument or first

00:31:59--> 00:32:05

you know, textual evidence that used to perhaps counter the original point

00:32:07--> 00:32:07

not

00:32:09--> 00:32:28

enter into Janna, be mad Quantum Time Alone. Because what you based on what you used to do, how did he answer that? He said that scholars have two ways of interpreting that. And both of those ways, fall right in line with the original principle which is you can't enter agenda by these alone.

00:32:29--> 00:32:48

Okay, now we got another argument, which is but Allah said, Well, it hasn't been said he said, We got these weak Hadith but all of that supported by the statement of Allah and Allah as salam in me, Nina and fossa, why Allah whom? The end of the humble agenda? How do we answer it? Read the translation is

00:32:50--> 00:32:53

Allah has bought from the believers, their selves

00:32:55--> 00:33:27

and their wealth in return for the garden, Jenna, they fight in the way of Allah, they kill, and they are killed. It is a promise binding on him in the Torah, the Injeel and the Quran, and who is truer to his contract than a law? Rejoice then in the bargain that you have made tiny book contract? Isn't that every buying and selling is a contract? Correct. And Allah has given us a contract. He said, You give me your wealth, you give me yourself.

00:33:28--> 00:33:29

I'll give you agenda.

00:33:30--> 00:33:32

Nothing about forgiveness and mercy.

00:33:34--> 00:33:54

Here, Paradise has been appointed the embarrassment for self ended property, the response to this that Allah glorious and exalted the response to this. So what is the author doing? Right now? He's going to, he's going to answer what appears to contradict what appears to be contradicting his original point. Yes.

00:33:55--> 00:34:39

And I want you to pay attention when things like that come up the response to that, okay, boom, okay. All right. Here's the HTML or the, the apparent contradiction, right here. And here's the response today. The response to this that a lot glorious and exalted is Heath was beneficence. mercy and kindness and generosity has addressed his servants in a way that would encourage them to obey Him, using language and concepts that they can readily understand and relate to. He placed himself in the position of a buyer and debtor and placed them in the position of sellers and creditors, then this then encourages them to answer his call and rush to his obedience. In reality, however,

00:34:39--> 00:35:00

everything belongs to him, and is granted by His grace and mercy. The self and property belong to him in the first place. Yes, yourself. Your wealth belongs to Allah in the first place. So in reality, can you sell something to somebody that they already

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

Oh, and you don't really have to

00:35:03--> 00:35:26

think about it like this, you went. And I'm sorry, this actually happened some time you go to your neighbor, you borrowed a drill, right? You put something up in the house and whatever. So you go borrow the drill from the neighbor. You keep the drill so long your neighbor got to come back to you and borrow back a cup on a drill you You ain't what so think about it like this. Think about the day when you say you know what?

00:35:28--> 00:35:40

I really don't feel like I'm kind of tight right now. I can't let you borrow this but I can sell it to you for 25 hours. It's his in the first place can you sell something to somebody that already belongs to him? So here the author is saying

00:35:41--> 00:35:45

in reality, however, everything belongs to Allah

00:35:47--> 00:35:53

and is granted by His grace and mercy the self and the property belongs to him.

00:35:54--> 00:35:55

Keep going.

00:35:56--> 00:35:57

And this is why

00:35:58--> 00:36:01

oh, boy matar Come on. Keep your finger into the

00:36:03--> 00:36:11

middle of the face. above the eye, above the eye, okay. The self and the property belongs to him, the self and the property.

00:36:13--> 00:36:36

belong to Him. And this is why he commanded us to say at the onset of calamity, okay, in that Lilla we're in LA he arrived. To la we belong and to Him. Are we returning? Yeah, this again? Oh, one second. Not in Manila, in nally LA.

00:36:37--> 00:36:56

And that was in LA who knows you were in that you know your audience. In LA, we're in that in a boardroom to a law we belong and to Him are we returning and if you switch that around my Make, make it clear. And to him we are returning right

00:36:59--> 00:36:59

in the present

00:37:01--> 00:37:47

in the present, not to Him we will return not to him we are returning every presently. Right so we belong to Allah subhanaw taala. And we are in constant state of returning to him getting closer to that meeting with him now. Despite this He commends those who extend their selves and properties for his sake, comparing them to sellers and creditors. Therefore a man is likened to someone who has property which he can sell and give as a loan to someone else who does not possess it. In the same way, all deeds come about as a result with His grace and mercy yet He commends those who perform them, attributes the deeds to them, and appoints them to be a show of gratitude and return for his

00:37:47--> 00:37:58

favor. I want to go back over just this last paragraph on page 23. Okay, despite the fact so it says despite this, right on page 23.

00:38:00--> 00:38:03

Despite this, what is this spite? What?

00:38:05--> 00:38:37

Right despite the fact that everything belongs to law in the first place. He commends those who expend the cells and property for his sake. Comparing them to sellers and creditors. Therefore, man is likened to someone who has property she could sell and give us a loan to someone else who does not possess type. Check this out. He says in the same way, all deeds come about, as all deeds, everything we do. And this is something that the author is going to

00:38:39--> 00:38:50

talk about on page 25 shallow, but just keep it in mind right now. All these come about as a result of his grace, and mercy. Like what?

00:38:52--> 00:39:10

Like your will do, and your saliva and you're giving him his account and you're fasting in Ramadan, your performance of heights, your ability then all of that is because Allah Subhana Allah guided you today. It's all from His grace and His mercy that you do these things in the first place. The fact that you are a Muslim that aligns with Oh God.

00:39:12--> 00:39:37

Yet, yeah, Allah Subhana Allah commends the people who perform them, what is then the righteous actions? Okay, make sure we understand what our pronouns all the time, shall we get your pronouns, those who perform them, he attributes the deeds to them, meaning you are the one who has performed that if you pray, then you pray, it's you PRAY

00:39:39--> 00:39:53

and He appoints them to be a show of gratitude and return for his say, in other words, that the good deeds that a person does Allah Subhana Allah counts them as a show of sugar, right?

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

For the favors of Allah subhanaw taala. He counts them as

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

Is you showing gratitude to him? Even though ultimately it is Eliza Zhang who is the one who guided everyone to do any of the good that they have ever done, keep it going

00:40:11--> 00:40:26

24 elucidation of the meaning of favors type, what our favors what does that mean when we say that these favors are from Allah Santayana? If you go back to page 22, you will see that Alhamdulillah is the word

00:40:28--> 00:40:29

embarrassment of everything.

00:40:30--> 00:40:44

It is the theremin, right it is the price that is due for every favor, what favor What are favours in the first place? Clear? So, this is the question that the author is going to answer. Starting now imagine

00:40:46--> 00:41:25

imagine, Rahim Allah because on the authority of Ennis video that he won, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there is no favor which Allah bestows upon his sermon for which he says Alhamdulillah except that which he gave was better than that which he took it. So go down to the footnote, what he gave was the statement of praise Yanni with the what the servant with the slave gave is his statement Alhamdulillah okay, what he took or what he received was the favorite from ALLAH SubhanA Tada. Like

00:41:27--> 00:41:31

this was also stated, okay. This was also stated by Omar Abdul Aziz

00:41:32--> 00:41:58

Abdulaziz, Al Hassan, and others from amongst the self. The meaning of this has troubled a great number of scholars past and present. But if it is understood in the light of our preceding discussion, its meaning is obvious. The meaning of favor mentioned in the hadith is worldly favorite, right? So there's no any worldly favorite which Allah bestows upon his servant. But what she says Alhamdulillah

00:41:59--> 00:42:02

Okay, so just think for example, Eliza, the person's

00:42:04--> 00:42:43

been fasting all day. And then when it comes time to break the fast and they have the dates and he wouldn't he said hamdulillah so this is Eliza Joe's favorite part of him is that he, he gave them food and drink, right. And then they which is a worldly favorite, they respond with a hamdulillah there is no worldly favor which Allah bestows upon and serve which he says 100 Allah except that which he gave the hamdulillah was better than what he received and in the worldly favor, okay. Keep shake read that again. The meaning of the Oka the meaning of favorite mentioned the Hadith, the the meaning of favor mentioned in the hadith is worldly favor. And the statement of praising Allah is

00:42:43--> 00:43:16

one of the religious favors and in fact that Allah guided you to single handedly Lanzi as a religious favor, no. Religious favors are better than worldly favors now, because the favor of praising Allah has been attributed to the servant since he articulated it. The servant is the one who's actually saying what Alhamdulillah right. So was attributed to him. Yeah, Allah considers him as giving greater favor. Wow. As a return for the original favor.

00:43:18--> 00:43:42

This is why it is mentioned in a narration Alhamdulillah with a praise that be fits and suffices suffices His favors, represses his retribution, and acts as as return for his addition. Wow, when understood in this light, the statement of praise is the embarrassment of paradise.

00:43:43--> 00:43:44

Keep going.

00:43:48--> 00:43:54

Al Hamdulillah Hamden. UEFI Niyama, who you there Nicoma, when you can afford ms either.

00:43:55--> 00:44:38

When understood in this light, the statement of praise is the inversion of paradise 1.3. Now, both paradise and deeds are from the Grace of Allah. Therefore to be correct, both paradise and deeds are granted to the believing servants by the grace and mercy of Allah. This is why pay attention to this is because he's going to give us a beautiful tafsir sha Allah. So he says both Paradise and the deeds that are granted to believing servants, they both by laws, as we just grace and His mercy, we already established a paradise. Nobody's going to answer by the deeds alone, but even the deeds themselves are from the grace and mercy of Allah Subhana Allah, and this is this is being repeated

00:44:39--> 00:44:59

and being reinforced in different ways. And it's really, really important because it's leading up to what the author really wants us to understand. Now, this is why the inhabitants of paradise, we say upon entering it hamdulillah him that he had done and he had a woman I couldn't deny Teddy Lola and her den Allah. Look at the susu Robina bill.

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

Have Praise be to Allah who guided us to this, we would not have been guided have a law that guided us barely. The messengers of Our Lord came with the truth

00:45:13--> 00:45:14

continues to

00:45:15--> 00:45:40

after they acknowledged that it was through the favor of law that they were granted Paradise, and that it was through his favorite that they were granted the the accord to enact to enact the means leading to it. Why? Because whether they say it's 100 landlady, her Danna Lee had, right. All praise due to Allah has guided us to this, we would not have been guided Had Allah not guided us, right.

00:45:41--> 00:46:15

So they acknowledged that it was through the favor of a law that they were granted Paradise, and that it was through his favorite that they were granted the accord to enact the means leading to it, meaning the deeds that lead to paradise. So they praised him for both. That is his guidance. And after having praised him, and after having praised him for this, they are rewarded with the call until como Jana, who is to move ahead, be mad come to some time alone. Now their deeds were attributed to them. Let me hold this.

00:46:17--> 00:46:18

Now misled, Oh, I'm so lazy.

00:46:20--> 00:46:44

Behold, this is the garden you will be made to inherit for what you did, their deeds were attributed to them, and they will show appreciation for them. It is with this overall meaning that some of the setup said when a seven commits a sin and says, My Lord, You decreed this for me. In other words, this person who has committed the sin, they try to blame Allah for it

00:46:45--> 00:46:57

may say, but Allah, this is what you decreed for me to do. Right? Like the one who went to the low tide. No one No one was going to cut his hand off for stealing. And he said,

00:46:59--> 00:47:04

he said but Allah decree that that I still he said, Yeah, and Allah decree that I cut your handle.

00:47:05--> 00:47:07

It's not we're not gonna use that excuse.

00:47:12--> 00:47:28

I will say, You are the one who sinned and disobeyed me. Now if the seven says, My Lord, I heard committed a sin and what evil law respond by saying, I decreed this upon you, and I will forgive you.

00:47:29--> 00:47:30

This

00:47:31--> 00:48:16

1.4 misery and Felicity occurred with justice and mercy and justice, misery, mercy, Felicity. Yeah, the truth report appears Allison. So that was Sam's words. Your actions alone will not save any of you. actions alone will not cause one to enter paradise can be further understood when it is realized that the B word of good deeds multiplied manifold only comes about by the beneficence and grace of Allah, mighty and magnificent. He recompenses you pay attention to this part here because as we know, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam has mentioned in several Hadith, that that action, any deed that a person does is multiply what

00:48:18--> 00:48:24

10 to 700 times. And for some of these, even more, even more than that,

00:48:25--> 00:48:29

no good deed that a person does. Goes on multiplied.

00:48:30--> 00:49:15

Every good deed that a person does, is multiply. This is from a loss Pantheon is grace and mercy. SubhanAllah. But but listen to what he's gonna say, going, he recompenses a good deed, tenfold to 700 fold to whatever He wills were he to rake recompense a good deed with it's like, in the same way that he does for an evil deed. Good deeds would never have the strength to rent, avoid the evil deeds and when would surely be destroyed. Understand that, understand that, and this is this. If this alone doesn't allow you to understand the grace and mercy of Allah Subhana Allah for a person to enter Paradise, if it was about your good deeds, and your bad deeds and your good deeds, when I

00:49:15--> 00:49:23

multiply, nobody will make nobody if it was just about your good deeds, versus your your evil deeds.

00:49:27--> 00:49:51

But Allah azza wa jal out of His mercy multiplies those detests the good deeds tend to 700 times and the bad deeds he doesn't multiply them. Now, people don't even mess. Very Allahu Anhu said, while describing good deeds, if one is an ally, well Lee of Allah, and they remain an Adam's wait of good after the mutual recompense. What does that mean?

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

After the mutual recompense, meaning here what he's talking about buying it

00:50:00--> 00:50:07

To saucer after, after the people come and take the good deeds from from that person

00:50:09--> 00:50:27

meaning the injustice is that were done to others libre you speak speaking evil about them behind the backs taking their money, you know, falsely oppressing them and justice hitting your kids when he didn't deserve it all of that stuff. Right? So

00:50:29--> 00:50:29

then,

00:50:31--> 00:50:38

if they're just remains an atom's weight of good that a person has done after all of that has happened. A law would

00:50:39--> 00:50:48

increase this metaphor, such that he enter [???] that he enters paradise through it, because if he'd be one,

00:50:50--> 00:51:34

if he is one for whom miseries decreed the angel says, My Lord his good deeds have vanished. Yet many more people remain seeking mutual recompense, his good deeds have gone but still a lot of people they want they want their heart, they want their rights, he wills he will reply, take their evil deeds and add them to his evil deeds it take day evil deeds since that since then he doesn't have any more good to give them and take their evil deeds and add them to his evil deeds. Yeah, then prepare for him a place of torment and the fire of Allah. Now, therefore, it becomes clear that Allah multiplies the good deeds of those who wishes Felicity those who wishes Felicity for until

00:51:34--> 00:52:12

they're able to pay off any penalties, hon. Hola. Me, I do think that it's important for us sometimes it's just kind of stop and really think about what's being said, this isn't even about this isn't even about your good deeds and your bad deeds and like trying to find some balance. This is a reminder that you're gonna have a lot to pay other people for we owe him from the injustices of the tongue in the hand and so forth, and suspicion and acting on that suspicion. What do you know the biller and everything else Willemstad? The last one is Allah protect us?

00:52:14--> 00:52:30

And if, after all this, there remains even an atom's wait worth of good. Allah will multiply this until he enters paradise through it because of it. All this by His grace and beneficence. However,

00:52:31--> 00:53:15

who whomever Allah has decreed misery for his deeds will not be multiplied to the extent that they are able to pay off his penalties instead, any good deeds performed by this latter person will only be multiplied tenfold that listen to that will only be multiplied tenfold because that's the that's the minimum that Allah azza wa jal multiplies a portion amongst his creditors who will accept them all and yet still require further repayment for remaining in justices and therefore their bad deeds are piled on to his thereby causing him to enter the fire this by His justice I was so

00:53:17--> 00:53:21

moved by that statement I haven't read it in a few different

00:53:22--> 00:53:28

a few different versions just to make sure that's what he was actually saying. Because I didn't remember that from the first time

00:53:29--> 00:53:32

which was a while ago that I that I actually read this so

00:53:34--> 00:53:44

basically, what the author is saying is if a person's these are only multiply 10 times which is still from Eliza Dells great son, his father in his in his mercy, it's still not gonna be enough.

00:53:47--> 00:53:49

It's not gonna be enough. Pamela.

00:53:51--> 00:54:31

Now, it is in this light Truly, Allah knows best now. It is in this light and when you get a chance, just go back read the Hadith and a bottom, which is what a lot of this is based on the Hadith of the mirthless the prophesy Salam said that ornament and mufflers Do you know what a bankrupt one is? And they say he's the person who has no money to promise a lie it was said no is the one who comes with a mountains you know, worth of BS but he's he's insulted this one he hit that one Suffolk at the mad right and he you know spilled blood on this one. So this one takes turns good diesel takes me because these have nothing left and he's bankrupt. He came he looked like Anahola Subhanallah but

00:54:31--> 00:54:32

had to give it all away.

00:54:34--> 00:54:37

Name and Allah No. It is in this light

00:54:39--> 00:54:59

like to give this example but I mean since the the climate and the environment and we all know where we are. You think about that guy that makes makes a good salary, but he's he's got a lot of different children in different places, all of them wanting their child support. No matter it's a nice check you get at the end but kind of give it all away and give it all the way

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

Then we'll take from it that will take some of that will take some you got nothing left making good money.

00:55:05--> 00:55:05

Okay give it all away.

00:55:07--> 00:55:08

Now

00:55:09--> 00:55:29

finish this isn't this light that yeah even more as I said, when he extends his grace, not a single evil deed remains for that person when his justice is put forth, not a single good DB means for that person. Understand mercy justice

00:55:30--> 00:56:15

is also established in Bukhari and Muslim writing my law that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam said, whoever's account is scrutinized will be destroyed, and another narration will be punished, and in another narration will be defeated ambling your aim, okay, so here, the author has established his point, which which is to know that those whom Allah Subhana Allah has mercy on and shows his grace, then they will be the ones who are successful yomo Kiana and those whom Allah Subhana Allah is just with, right, and it's still he's being just he's not being oppressive to anyone. But his justice is equivalent to their misery.

00:56:17--> 00:56:22

His justice is equivalent to their misery because they don't deserve they all deserve

00:56:23--> 00:56:43

gender. And what they deserve in fact, is the punishment of Allah subhana who was had is why so he established his this with the authentic narrations and he brings the Hadith of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Sudan saying Buhari and Muslim. Now he's gonna bring some other narrations from Abu am and some it's like either yet

00:56:44--> 00:56:50

narrations from many Islam or to the people of the previous book.

00:56:51--> 00:56:58

I wanted to just point that out. So this next these next two paragraphs, for example, these these are not

00:56:59--> 00:57:03

authentic hadith or anything of that line, anything of that nature. However,

00:57:04--> 00:57:12

in the Rajib, specifically, many of the authors of the past after they've established their point, they may mention weak narrations

00:57:14--> 00:57:32

as subsidiary or secondary evidence, not that it's being used to establish a principal in and of itself, so clear. So they just mentioned in this to, because it's been narrated in the books. And the point is already been established. Now.

00:57:34--> 00:58:18

I'm going to aim records on the authority of ally, many with Iran that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said, along field to a prophet amongst the Prophets of the Children of Israel, say to those who obey me amongst your nation, that they should not overly rely on their deeds, for on the Day of Judgment, I will not settle the counts of the servant, I wish to punish, except that I will punish him and in other words of Allah azza wa jal wants to execute His justice, then that person is going to be punished. Say to those who disobey me amongst your nation, that they should not despair for I Vetterli. Forgive even the great sins. No Hadees week, Razzies, maybe. Abdulaziz Ibn Abu Awad said,

00:58:19--> 00:59:10

This is it. Allah inspired that rude alayhi salam saying that who give glad tidings to the sinners and one those who given charity, surprised. Don't said, My Lord, why should I give good tidings to the sinners, and one those who've given charity, he replied, Good, glad tidings to this Senate, that there is no sin, that I find to grievious to forgive and warn those who give in charity, that there is no service upon whom I meet, meet out my justice and judgment, except that he is destroyed. Now he's going back and he's going to give us some explanation of the Hadith which has proceeded on page 28. Whoever's account is scrutinized will be destroyed. If no Yana said, we ain't said. scrutiny

00:59:10--> 00:59:59

here means to undergo the evil of a thorough examination such that nothing is left over in the A Z that said, the severe reckoning is that which contains no pardoning and the easy reckoning is that in which one sins are forgiven, and good deeds accepted, all of these narrations show that the servant cannot possibly succeed without forgiveness, mercy, and the overlooking of his faults. They also show that when Allah enact pure justice upon the servant, He will certainly be destroyed. Okay, so now he's again, emphasizing this point of Allah Subhana Allah showing his mercy and that a person will not enter Jannah without the Mercy of Allah subhana wa it's not 1.5

01:00:00--> 01:00:31

Allah's blessings can never be truly be paid. This again is going to emphasize some very important points about our deeds so that we really understand something this is where the author is actually started to make his point. Because after we truly believe that our deeds will not enter into paradise, enter us into paradise, they will not save us from the fire. There has to be some action that is based on that belief and this is where the author is going to start making a point now,

01:00:32--> 01:00:58

this is further clarified by saying, some Allah to Allah Neoma either 99 Now, then you will be asked that day about the pleasures you enjoyed. This verse shows that the servants will be asked about the pleasures they enjoyed in this world. Did they show gratitude for them or not? gratitude? Gratitude? Do you show gratitude for your favors? What fate What are favors?

01:01:00--> 01:01:25

two categories, worldly favors? Religious favors, you thank Allah azza wa jal for having blessed you to stand up at night and pray, pray and tada we're for blessing new faster molto Rama might be for having a heart to give away and charity for praying five times do you think Allah azza wa jal for these favorites you thank him for your worldly favors someone that's no Neomycin and a name

01:01:26--> 01:02:02

anyone who was required to display gratitude for every favor such as good health, sound senses good livelihood and moreover, will be thoroughly examined should know that all have his deeds or her deeds taken together cannot repay even some of these favors his yet person he left out he left out part of the translation here which is what Tabqa said it will never meet higher amo Cabela timbi Shaka okay which which means this so should know that all of his these taken together

01:02:03--> 01:02:16

no matter what a person does pull it all together 50 years fast in the month of Ramadan of a praying or later Takada and all of that, bring it all together

01:02:19--> 01:02:27

it will not repay even some of the favors that Allah Subhana Allah has given your ability to hear your ability to see

01:02:28--> 01:02:47

that won't be repaid what tap Casa Iranian, vital macabre lets him be shaken. So even if you thanked and you show gratitude for those some of those favors with those deeds, the remaining favourites will be left without any what, without any gratitude being shown.

01:02:48--> 01:02:54

Hence, the person would be deserving of punishment. This is what he's saying. Now

01:02:56--> 01:03:41

the karate karate, I guess the overthrow of Kitab Ashoka correct records on the authority of ability of an animal that you know and that the prophet Elisha that was to them said this hadith his life as well. But go ahead read it, the serpent will be summoned on the day of judgment and he was standing before Allah, mighty and magnificent. He will say to His angels, look at the deeds of my servant and the favors I bestowed upon them. They will look and say they don't even imagine one of your favorites granted and then he will say, look to his evil deeds and good deeds, they will look and they will and find them the same. whereby he will say, servant of Mine, I've accepted your good

01:03:41--> 01:03:46

deeds and forgiven you your evil, my favors, I have gifted you

01:03:47--> 01:04:34

to Bharani because on the authority of even our own law, many law Ron man that the prophet is that the Westerdam said, a person will be brought on the day of judgment that such deeds that would burden the mountain worthy to be placed upon it, then just one favor from amongst the favors of the law would be displayed and would almost extinguish all those deeds. Were a law not too distant enlarge them through his mercy. If an epi dunya Rahim Allah because of the authority of Anna's many louder and that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said, on the Day of Judgment, blessings will be brought forward as well as good deeds and bad deeds. Allah will say to just one of his blessings,

01:04:34--> 01:04:59

take your day. Take your deal from his good deeds, and it will take all his good deeds. He asked because there was been monad manette said, or seven worshipped Allah for 50 years. Allah inspired him with the words I have forgiven you. In other words, the man and he Oh, hello, he laid and cut the roof up to like any demand was inspired heard this

01:05:00--> 01:05:12

I don't know if you want to call it a voice or whatever. But basically he's here and allies will just say to him, I have forgiven you. He responds to say, Forgive me for what I haven't committed a sin. Allah.

01:05:13--> 01:05:14

Thereupon

01:05:16--> 01:05:40

May Allah protect this their plan Allah ordered a vein in his neck to throb painfully such that he could not pray or sleep. After a while it was cured, and an angel came to him. And to him he complained about the vein. The angel said to him, your Lord money and magnificent says, Your Worship for the last 50 years equates to the soothing of that thing.

01:05:42--> 01:05:42

Insane.

01:05:44--> 01:05:47

The afterlives was cured him from his pain.

01:05:48--> 01:05:50

He said that the cure that came

01:05:51--> 01:05:55

all in at worship you did for the last 50 years that is equals their cure.

01:05:57--> 01:06:12

That obviously this is not a Hadith from the prophet Isaiah, it's hard to say. But it's from the Hichem to just show that many of the blessings that ALLAH SubhanA, Allah gives us go on things. We don't even realize, you know, and we take it for granted.

01:06:13--> 01:06:47

I'm going to read for the sake of time, and I think we only have four or five minutes to do that. What's what time? Oh, no, we have eight minutes. Let me let me read. Because we have to really want to get to this point. It needs to flow with what we cover right now. How can record on the authority of Jabba that the Prophet it is Salatu was Salam said that Jabril said a servant worshipped along the top of a mountain in the middle of an ocean for 500 years. Then he asked the store to let him die in the state of prostration. For eight years, okay, we used to pass by him each time we would descend. I need the angels and ascend and we will find written in the pre eternal knowledge that he

01:06:47--> 01:07:16

will be resurrected on a day of judgment will stand before law mighty magnificent. The Lord was saying, enter my servant into Paradise by virtue of My Mercy. The servant will save my lord rather by virtue of my deeds, why worshiping and finding yours. Let me answer agenda by my deeds. This will happen three times and Allah will say it says angels weigh my favors against his deeds. And they will find that the blessing of sight alone takes up all of the deeds he did during his 500 years of worship.

01:07:17--> 01:07:38

With the other bodily blessing still remaining, he will say, enter my servant into the fire, he will be dragged towards the fire will cry out, and to me it's a Paradise by virtue of your mercy. And to me it's a Paradise by virtue of Your mercy thereby he shall enter paradise Jabril went on to say Mohamed Salah is son of things only happen by the mercy of Allah.

01:07:39--> 01:07:53

Obviously, this Hadith also is not authentic. The author however, by bringing various narrations is proving the fundamental the foundational point here, which is that

01:07:54--> 01:08:17

you're the favors of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. You can't possibly think Allah Subhana Allah, you can't possibly thank Him for His favors, right? And so what remains after that is a lack of gratitude because you haven't shown enough gratitude. And that alone is enough that if Allah azza wa jal wanted to hold you to account with his justice, right? That that would be enough alone for for punish.

01:08:19--> 01:08:42

Whoever understands all the way has proceeded will realize okay, now this I want you to put like stars next, this paragraph right here, Whoever understands all of what has preceded will realize that his deeds, even if they are great, are not sufficient to merit his success and entry into paradise or salvation from the fire in and of themselves.

01:08:43--> 01:08:52

As such, he will no longer over rely on his deeds or be impressed by them handed in circling.

01:08:53--> 01:08:54

Urge but

01:08:55--> 01:09:07

allergic. Yeah, and he that he's impressed with himself. He's so self righteous. He's done so much good. I have done this for spam. And I have done that.

01:09:08--> 01:09:10

And I am the greatest thing since sliced bread,

01:09:11--> 01:09:13

even if they'd be great and wonderful.

01:09:15--> 01:09:34

Look at that, as such, he will know this is the result. This is what he wants us to get out of this. Number one we talked about the shocker for Allah azza wa jal is favours and he wants to make sure that if we understand this principle that your deeds

01:09:35--> 01:09:44

are not all that he will not become self impressed. Because if you become self impressed, and that will lead to L kibble.

01:09:47--> 01:09:49

And kibble was the them

01:09:51--> 01:09:59

of Iblees and it was what led him to disobey Allah subhana wa Tada. And Kippur is the apostle of cover

01:10:01--> 01:10:06

And perhaps we talk a little bit about more about that next week in the land when we get there, Charlotte.

01:10:07--> 01:10:21

If this is the case of great many deeds, so it's all about somebody who's actually striving to worship Allah. What then would one think of the paltry deeds of the many, many people who don't even try barely do anything.

01:10:23--> 01:11:09

Such a person should ponder his deficiency in worship. And he the person who doesn't is not doing enough or alive, should ponder his deficiency in worship and devote himself to penitence and repentance. 1.61 of the greatest blessings is sugar. One of the greatest blessings is sugar, as regards one whose deeds are great and many, so this is the opposite. So, look above it says, What then one think of the paltry deeds of the many so the person who's not the one enough than his issue should be what pondering his deficiency in devoting himself to toe turning himself around. Okay, what about the one who does a lot regards ones whose deeds are great and many, he was busy himself

01:11:09--> 01:11:40

was showing gratitude for them. For the record to show gratitude is one of the greatest blessings Allah bestows upon his servant is obligatory upon him to meet these these with gratitude, and realize his deficiency in displaying do gratitude is not showing enough, even if you don't want to lie. Why people will work, when asked about the reward of particular deed, as said, as not about his reward, but asked about the gratitude do upon one who was guided to it?

01:11:42--> 01:11:52

How do I thank you Allah for this reward for the for this for this act of worship that you got me to? Not? What's the reward for this? And what if I do that? What do I get?

01:11:54--> 01:12:18

How you're How can I thank you for this for guiding me to this? I will say Man, we say How can an intelligent person be amazed with his deeds? Right? These are one of the laws blessing. As such, it is upon Him to show gratitude and to show humility. It is only the cadet iya who are amazed that their deeds the country as we talked about before, they don't want us to believe they create their own deeds.

01:12:20--> 01:12:26

That is those who do not believe that the actions of the servant are created by Allah mighty minutes. How excellent is this thing, bucket

01:12:28--> 01:12:29

a nation

01:12:30--> 01:13:06

from what I owe initially, on the day the Dow the TA he died after his burial even a semester it and he praised him for his good deeds and he and wept causing all present to weep as well as to testify to the truth of what he said. In other words, he's standing at the grave grave without a tie. And he's talking about what he did for slam or what he did and what I know and all that and he made everybody cry and everybody was like Yeah, he did all these great things for a buck in a nationally stood and he said, Oh Allah, forgive him and show mercy to him, and leave him not to his deeds. Don't even to his deeds, deed ain't gonna be enough.

01:13:08--> 01:13:20

I would I will record on the authority of savings habit on the Allahu i that the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam said, we're allowed to punish the inhabitants of the heavens and the inhabitants of the earth he would do so without having oppressed them in any way.

01:13:22--> 01:13:56

Where are you to show them His mercy? Well, you just show them mercy, His mercy would be better for them than they are deeds. This is the rule right there. That hadith of the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Sudan. And it is saying, Okay, we're a law to punish the inhabitants of the heavens and earth he would do so without having to press them in any way and we need to show them mercy His Mercy is better for them than they deeds have been recording the authority of Jabil the law why than a man came to the prophesy Solomon said sin sins repeating this two or three times messages lie someone says Say Allah forgiveness is vast at the my sins, and I have more hope in it. I need forgiveness

01:13:56--> 01:14:19

than I do my deeds. He said this in the message of Allah Azza wa sallam said, repeated, he did so and he was ordered to repeat it again which he did. Then he said, Elijah, someone says, Stand for you have been forgiven my sins, what's upon them are copious, but great again is my Lord's forgiveness and my righteous deeds lies not my expectation, but in the Mercy of Allah I have have i anticipation

01:14:21--> 01:14:25

acknowledging the Grace of Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala this

01:14:27--> 01:14:34

alright call you then inshallah. But I stay stay because I want to finish this between today and any comment Shabbat

01:14:35--> 01:14:59

I base 36. We're almost done Inshallah, acknowledging the Grace of Allah. Now that this noble principle has been established, it is known that deeds in and of themselves do not necessitate or bring about salvation from the fire an entry into paradise, let alone necessitating the ascension to the uppermost levels of paradise the levels of those brought closer and more comfortable and seeing the face

01:15:00--> 01:15:17

Have the Lord of the Worlds in it is known that this can only come to pass through the mercy of Allah, His grace and forgiveness, okay? Again, it only happens to what Mercy of Allah, His grace is forgiveness, then what should our question be right there?

01:15:19--> 01:15:21

How do we get Allah's mercy?

01:15:25--> 01:15:27

Not not,

01:15:28--> 01:15:41

again, not what deeds? Right? I'm going to rely on his deeds to get me into Jannah what you do to get Allah's mercy? And Did Allah not explain to us that in the Quran

01:15:42--> 01:16:03

this then requires the believer to abandon thinking highly of his deeds, and to look solely to the Grace of Allah and His blessing. Type. Before we get to the next part, I just want us to real quick, the benefit of knowing this principle that we study is number one, it kills urges

01:16:04--> 01:16:11

that self righteousness and vanity kills it because you have no ground for the standard.

01:16:13--> 01:16:32

And when you kill kibble and as we talked about this next week in shallow bring some some other statements from a man on this, it opens up the door for so much of a lies which shows mercy that is closed for those who are Eric. The second thing is the author also talked about this, it should increase us in gratitude

01:16:33--> 01:16:36

should increase us in gratitude. Not that we

01:16:37--> 01:16:39

are so

01:16:42--> 01:16:55

you know, amazed by the works that we've done with that we are so thankful that Allah azza wa jal has guided us to do it. All right. Now, one of the Gnostics was actually I don't like using that term Gnostics the Arabic is already feed.

01:16:57--> 01:17:00

Which is it's it's Sufi terminology, which was

01:17:02--> 01:17:06

borrowed from the Christian Gnostics the Christian mystics

01:17:07--> 01:17:21

which they have mysticism, infected Guinee, the early or the latter Sufis of Islam, we should say, it's different from the early group. But anyway, I don't really like that translation.

01:17:23--> 01:18:07

But we'll use it for now. One of the Gnostics was asked which deed is best, he replied, realizing the Grace of Allah, mighty and magnificent, he never cited, if quantities were able to aid in any way, they would join the obtuse with the judicious. When all of this is understood. Here we go, is obligatory upon a believer in servant the servant desire salvation from the fire entering into paradise who desires them close to his master to look on at his face, to seek all of this by taking to the means that lead to Allah's mercy, pardon, forgiveness, pleasure and love. It is in this way that he will attain his unit versus the means are the various deeds Allah has appointed. Only those

01:18:07--> 01:18:38

deeds that he's legislated upon the tongue of His messengers, align it with some, only those deeds that his messenger told us was served to draw us closer to Allah, those deeds that he loves and leads to His pleasure and forgiveness. Allah the Exalted says, In Rama to line 31 Man and mercy need Allah's Mercy is close to the Mercy Nene. Then we should be looking to be people of sin. Because Allah's Mercy is close to those people and we want Allah's mercy.

01:18:40--> 01:19:31

whare Mati was he at Kula che for a sec to booyah lil Adina yet Akun mercy extends to all things and I will write it, prescribe it for those who have Taqwa. Therefore, we should try to be people of a saint and people of Taqwa so it is obligatory upon the servant to seek out those traits of Taqwa and a sin, that Allah is legislated in his book or upon the tongue of His Messenger sai Salam, and having done so, draw closer to Allah mighty and magnificent through an acting them there is no other path that can lead to the goal of the believing servant. This is where we're going to pick up next week, inshallah Tada. But for homework, what I want you to do is find the eight places in the Quran,

01:19:32--> 01:19:42

where Allah subhana who were to Anna says, lie luck home, tour her moon so that you attain mercy.

01:19:43--> 01:19:59

Find those places in the Quran, where Allah azza wa jal says, Lila come to hameau seven places where losses lie under control one place where he says what, lad lacouture hameau All right. Find the

01:20:00--> 01:20:33

was placed in the Quran because from there, you will be able to work backwards and see the people whom Allah Subhana Allah says that He will have mercy in the land and that's what we're striving for. And this is one of the things that we benefit from the principle none of you will be saved. By His deeds alone we ask ALLAH SubhanA what's added for His mercy and for His grace, save us from the punishment of the fire to entrance in the Paradise Heather Willow items along with some robotic men to be in a Muhammad Subhanak logo hamburger Shetland Islands stuck with a call to action
