00:00:00--> 00:00:06

No God that deserves to be worshipped, except Allah alone and with no partner.

00:00:07--> 00:00:11

And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:00:12--> 00:00:34

is the slave of Allah and His messenger. We ask Allah to exalt his mansion and grant him peace, and to his family and his companions, and all those who follow them until the last day. Or you who believe have Taqwa of Allah as Allah deserves for you to have Taqwa of him

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

and do not die except as Muslims. And this word taqwa,

00:00:41--> 00:00:44

my brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:00:45--> 00:00:55

It means to protect yourself from Allah's punishment by obeying Allah subhanho wa taala. And keeping away from what Allah made haram for you.

00:00:58--> 00:01:20

All mankind have Taqwa of your Lord, Who created you from a single soul and created from its mate. And from those two sent forth many men and women and have Taqwa of Allah, the One whose name you ask by And fear Allah with regard to your relatives.

00:01:22--> 00:01:39

Allah is always watching over you. Or you who believe have Taqwa of Allah and speak a word that is true. He will correct your deeds and forgive your sins. And whoever a bass Allah and His Messenger has achieved has achieved a great success.

00:01:41--> 00:01:51

Before we continue any further my brothers if we can ask everyone to move to space in between each other, close the gaps and come forward because already the masjid is completely full.

00:01:58--> 00:02:07

Especially close the gaps between you and give space for the brothers who are coming in. Already the masjid is full, which is Kamala Harris.

00:02:10--> 00:02:30

To continue the best speeches, the speech of Allah and the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the worst of things in this religion are the newly invented matters. And every newly invented belief and practice is an innovation and every innovation is misguidance and every misguidance is in the fire.

00:02:32--> 00:02:37

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam today we're going to ask ourselves a question.

00:02:38--> 00:02:42

How much are our actions worth?

00:02:43--> 00:02:53

In the sight of Allah yo mo Kiana when we stand in front of Allah subhana wa Tada and our deeds are weighed How much are our actions worth?

00:02:55--> 00:03:01

The noble companion Abu Hooray Allah, Radi Allahu, and he narrated a hadith

00:03:04--> 00:03:07

and the hadith is narrated by an imam Muslim in his sahih

00:03:09--> 00:03:12

the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:03:15--> 00:03:17

None of you

00:03:21--> 00:03:24

their actions are going to put them into paradise.

00:03:26--> 00:03:31

He said, there are none of you whose actions are going to put them into paradise.

00:03:33--> 00:03:43

They said Not even you or messenger of Allah. He said, Not even me. unless ALLAH covers me with His grace and His mercy.

00:03:46--> 00:03:47

Our actions alone

00:03:48--> 00:03:51

are not enough to take us to Jenna.

00:03:53--> 00:03:57

Our actions are no alone are not enough

00:03:58--> 00:04:20

to take us to Agenda. How can it be that our actions are not sufficient for us to be from the people of Ghana? What about if we pray? What about if we fast? What about if we give charity? How can it be that our actions are not enough for us to be from the people of Ghana?

00:04:22--> 00:04:23

There is a Hadith

00:04:24--> 00:04:31

and this hadith is narrated from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accepted the hadith is weak.

00:04:32--> 00:04:44

But the reason that I'm going to mention this hadith today is not because it's authentic. But because it explains the reason for this. And the reasoning that is mentioned is correct.

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

The narration mentions a man

00:04:48--> 00:04:51

who lived on an island in the ocean.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

And that man asked Allah to take his life when he was in sujood. He spent

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

500 years worshiping Allah according to the narration, as we said, the narration is weak

00:05:06--> 00:05:12

500 years worshiping Allah, on an island, away from everybody.

00:05:13--> 00:05:15

And he died in such depth.

00:05:17--> 00:05:19

And the narration mentions that this man

00:05:21--> 00:05:26

it was said to him enter Paradise by the mercy of Allah.

00:05:27--> 00:05:31

It was said to him enter Paradise by the mercy of Allah.

00:05:32--> 00:05:40

And the man he said, I don't want to enter Paradise by the mercy of Allah, I want to enter Paradise because of what I did.

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

Because of all of the good that I did.

00:05:46--> 00:05:51

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala commands for all the good that he did.

00:05:52--> 00:05:59

Everything good that he did, to be put on the scale, and just his eyesight to be put on the other side.

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

Only his eyesight, nothing else. Just the value of the eyesight that Allah gave him.

00:06:13--> 00:06:16

Just the value of the eyesight that Allah gave him.

00:06:19--> 00:06:26

And the eyesight that Allah gave him is worth more than the 500 years that he spent in worship.

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

This hadith is not authentic.

00:06:31--> 00:06:41

But it explains to you a very important point that you can understand it when you explain it like that, that the blessings of Allah will always be more than

00:06:42--> 00:06:49

the blessings of Allah will always be more than the worship that you do.

00:06:50--> 00:07:09

How can it be because even the worship you do is a blessing from Allah. Even the praying you do is a blessing from Allah. Even the remembrance you do of Allah is a blessing from Allah. So those blessings will never you will never be able to do enough

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

you will never be able to do enough

00:07:17--> 00:07:20

linear to hola I had a min come Emmylou Jana.

00:07:22--> 00:08:12

None of you their actions are going to put them into Jenner. Not even the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because everything that Allah gave him that was a blessing. You cannot do enough actions for your actions to be equal to what Allah gave you. What I can Allah have better in a cool Amen was a Yana houfy kuru become work habla la cuckoo for our forsook our ACN hola ecohome Rashi dude, fog La Mina la he went EREMA wala who I am and Hakeem in this ayah Allah tells us that your Eman is a blessing from Allah. That your love of Islam is a blessing for all from Allah, that you keeping away from your sins is a blessing from Allah. In that case, you cannot do

00:08:12--> 00:08:19

enough actions to pay back the blessings that Allah Subhana Allah gave you. So now the question is,

00:08:21--> 00:08:25

if not others will enter gender because of the actions that we do.

00:08:26--> 00:08:30

If none of us will enter gender because of the actions that we do,

00:08:32--> 00:08:33

then how do we enter gender?

00:08:35--> 00:08:38

We enter gender from the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:08:39--> 00:08:42

And how do we get the Mercy of Allah?

00:08:43--> 00:09:03

We get the Mercy of Allah through our actions. And this is what we're going to talk about in the second part of the hotbar be it nila heeta Allah Akula Mathis Maroun what I started with hula and Ali Molly welcome well, he said he Muslimeen I mean Cooley them in Philadelphia we'll we'll let him in who will have all right.

00:09:20--> 00:09:22

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen

00:09:23--> 00:09:35

wa salatu wa sallam, Island Murthy Rama attending al Amin Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa salam Hashmi, Edge marine and now that we've been talking about the Hadith

00:09:38--> 00:09:49

and the Hadith, Narrated by Abu hora, and it's narrated by others as well, that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said lennier to hula ahead and Ming come Emmylou Jenna

00:09:50--> 00:09:58

Corlew whether NTR rasool Allah, Kala Anna in any Ahmed any Allah Who mean who will be formally Marama

00:10:01--> 00:10:02

They said,

00:10:03--> 00:10:19

All the prophets lie Selim, he said, None of you their actions will put you into agenda. They said Not even your messenger of Allah He said not even me, unless Allah covers me with His grace and His mercy.

00:10:21--> 00:10:36

We said that the reason your actions will not get you into Jenna is because Allah has given you so much everything even your good deeds are a gift from Allah. Your Eman is a gift from Allah.

00:10:37--> 00:10:46

Your Islam is a gift from Allah. So you can never do enough good deeds to make up for the blessings that Allah gave you.

00:10:47--> 00:11:17

But Allah is Aileen. When Hakeem Allah knows everything and he is the most wise. So Allah subhanho wa Taala looks at the actions of his slaves. And he gives his mercy according to those actions. So the people who worked hard and they tried hard, and they did as many good deeds as they can, and they kept away from as much Haram as they can. Those people Allah subhanho wa Taala gives his mercy to them.

00:11:19--> 00:11:22

Those are the people that Allah gives his mercy to them.

00:11:23--> 00:11:30

Because Allah has mercy is Kali even more sinning, it is near to the people who do good.

00:11:31--> 00:11:44

So when you do good deeds, this is not your payment to enter paradise. Your good deeds are the way that you get Allah's mercy and through Allah's mercy, you go to paradise.

00:11:45--> 00:11:50

This is important because it gives you something extremely, extremely important

00:11:51--> 00:11:53

that I want you to take from this hadith.

00:11:55--> 00:12:31

Number one I want you to take from this hadith that you need Allah. You cannot be believed that you can go to Jenna by yourself. You need the help of Allah, you need Allah's mercy, you need Allah's forgiveness. The second thing that I want you to take from this hadith is not to be satisfied with your own actions. Many of us what we see Alhamdulillah I pray Alhamdulillah I come to Juma Alhamdulillah, I give sadaqa Alhamdulillah I did Hajj and the person thinks this is enough.

00:12:33--> 00:13:08

It's not enough. It's not enough to take you to paradise. If you lived 500 years, and you did nothing except worship Allah, it would not be enough to put you into paradise. You need the Mercy of Allah and you need Allah's help. And the third thing is that we have to ask Allah subhanaw taala we have to ask Allah for His mercy, we have to ask Allah for His grace, we have to ask Allah for his forgiveness. Because without those things, we will not be from the people of Ghana, no matter how many good deeds we do.

00:13:09--> 00:13:59

So I felt this is a very important lesson to share with everybody, that even the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, I will not go to gender because of my good deeds, unless Allah covers me with His grace and His mercy. So we remember how much we need Allah. And we remember that this mercy comes from the good deeds that we do or it's given to us because of the good deeds that we do. So we strive to do as many good deeds as we can. We strive to keep away from as many sins as we can. We strive to ask Allah as much as we can for his forgiveness and His mercy. And we realize that us ourselves, it's not enough. We need Allah's help. We need Allah subhanaw taala as mercy and

00:13:59--> 00:14:12

we look at our deeds as being small and we look at our sins as being great. And when we do that, in sha Allah, we will gain the Mercy of Allah by which a person will enter paradise.
