May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant to success and ease allotment I mean, my discussion with you today In short, Lafayette row gelatins area in a quick paced discussion is about righteousness that leads to hell and sinfulness that leads to paradise. And I want you to consider

00:03:13--> 00:04:01

this paradoxical statement righteousness that leads to hell, but sinfulness that leads to Jenna and paradise. Let's begin Of course with the famous hadith of r&b Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cannot over Imam Muslim and Abu hurayrah Timothy Allahu anhu that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said our lumen tusshar will be human now of the first qualities the first types the first categories of people who will loss of hanahan went to Allah will Kindle blaze over Hellfire upon them. The first type of people from our nation, our oma our tradition of those who followed the prophets I send them who will be punished by Allah and that Hellfire will blaze upon them are three

00:04:01--> 00:04:46

important categories The first of them, may Allah Subhana Allah protect us from all three or Julian Atta, hula, hula in and then an individual whom Allah blessed with knowledge to eliminate email Allah, he acquired the ability to study it was given the luxury of learning the finer details of faith. And then I given a platform to teach it unto others to eliminate him he acquired and he taught and that's a very important step you know even even in the condemnation of the Allah, Allah Subhana. Allah has set as the prophets I seldom mentioned the precedence of knowledge in MLA movie dalem that knowledge can only be acquired through seeking it. One who is a false claimant of

00:04:46--> 00:05:00

knowledge is something very different to those who are actually knowledgeable who studied and then convey the tradition even if it's for an ulterior sinful purpose as we will soon see that eliminated

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

Why lemma

00:05:02--> 00:05:41

and Wakata Al Quran and became a master of the vocalization of the reading of the Quran? Notice the word that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam uses Cora Al Quran that he becomes a person who reads the Bible and it's something that's read by him in public heard studied with him at the hula hooyo middle class gamma fo TV Haile Mariam, Allah subhanaw taala will summon that he'd be brought forward on the Day of Judgment thyagaraja hula when you move out of her head and Allah will make known to him the blessing of the knowledge that he had gathered, the ability and the platform to teach it the knowledge of the horror and that bequest to him which is an inheritance from the

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

prophets of Allah and the

00:05:44--> 00:06:22

hadith of a limited me the the prophets I seldom said in an MBA LMU What do we feel the narrow well I did ohana in them or whatever fill in the prophets of God don't leave behind at any point in time in human history, wealth or gold and silver coins that are to be inherited from them. What they leave behind is knowledge, the understanding of your relationship with God and the remembrance that you were to convey to others to them and how they how they have been one of the wife is the one who takes hold of that knowledge has taken something substantial, something profitable in this life in the next remember shatter iraq not to lie Hollywood semen around the dunia family he blamed woman

00:06:22--> 00:07:04

out of her family he will be the one who seeks to acquire the majesty the mind the privilege, the honor, the elevated status, the wealth of this worldly life, let them acquire knowledge let them learn and the one who wants the alpha male lots of hands on with the island makers from those whose hard turn towards the outfit or rather than the dunya let them also maintain the study of knowledge. So the prophets I send them says about this men dilemma email Allah and Allah will show him the privilege valid offer he will recognize it will admit I had something great in my possession. had something great I had the whole world in my hand out of her fundament. I mean if he had it will be

00:07:04--> 00:07:47

asked of him. What did you do with this blessing that you were given? The man admittedly will say all the time to the email lm to work harder to faecal for an Oh my Lord, I acquired knowledge and I taught it and I recited the horror and for you Oh Allah, Allah can adapt, it will be responded back to him. You have lied. You have spoken an untruth? This is an eat dishonest, disingenuous false fabricated statement. In America lm two lane Malou Allah Allah, in Nikita lemons, you learned and acquired and you studied this knowledge so that people will praise your scholarship praise your learning praise your understanding. You crave the attention the celebrity status of others, you

00:07:47--> 00:08:03

wanted the eyes to fall upon you more so than you wanted to be a conveyor of the tradition of the nobility of the words and the habits and the behaviors of the prophets of God. And now whenever you Mohammed Salalah How do you assess Sallam and his companions

00:08:04--> 00:08:11

were caught up or an and you recited the Quran so that people will praise your reading.

00:08:12--> 00:08:31

And you will be celebrated for your citation for your memory of it for your tone for your voice, your intonation your tissue we'd thought I'd clean and people gave you the praise that you craved people gave you the acknowledgement that you wanted as payment people gave you your recumbents in the dunya thought I'd clean

00:08:33--> 00:09:21

for omean I'll be here for Sophie Banda, which he it will be ordered by a law that that person be thrown on their faith face and dragged into hellfire. The second category are Julian atta hola him and Jimmy I'll snap in man, an individual a man who was given all types of wealth. He had property and real estate, gold paper, liquid assets, whatever you wanted stocks bonds. All the types of wealth were gathered in this man believer submitter and there was never a path of charity except this man spent in it. He would use his charity for that which was overtly righteous purposes, helping the poor defending the weak, assisting the needy. He was a person who was giving for OTB

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

Omen cuyama, founder of Valhalla when you're out on the Day of Judgment, he will be brought in some in forward and you will be asked Matt Duffy, how what have you done with the blessing of this wealth, the prosperity that you had and the excess that you could spend from where you wanted into my path. The men will say, by Lord, mattock, to civilian I left no pathway that was inviting to a just cause or to something that would be pleasing to you for me to donate my wealth in inlet and factor fee except I gave from that wealth that you gave me Oh Allah, Allah concept, it will be said to him

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

The angels will say you lied in NECA and factory, your college co Ed, you gave to that people will praise your generosity, what you really wanted were people to acknowledge what you have done. Now of course, there's nothing wrong with being a public, generous benefactor, philanthropist, as an invitation to others. But there's a difference between giving because you want to be recognized and giving in public for the betterment of others while you would give more in private, or that there is an opportunity in private that you're you would give in just as much, if not more. Some people they crave to be known for their generosity for God to clean your reward was given to you in the dunya

00:10:44--> 00:11:28

people always saw you They always grovel to you, they always open doors for you, they always gave you the access that you wanted, not an account of your righteousness, but on account of your generosity, on account of what you gave, not for me, but for your own self. And the third type of category is a man who stood in battle, defending the weak, the needy, the poor, stood and gave their life as a martyr in sacrifice for the cause of God. And this Shaheed will be brought forward on the Day of Judgment founder of have Allahu Allah will show him the blessing of having been given the honor that you can defend the the weak and the needy with your wealth and your body and your person.

00:11:29--> 00:12:14

What did you do with it? He said, Oh, my Lord, I thought in your path, seeking to repel the injustices and to correct favors upon others, Oh Allah, I did this ma I fell in death as a martyr before you, oh my lord Allah, and that it will said You lied in NACA called Delta. In you strove and you struggled and you fought your college degree, so that people would immortalize you and memorize and remember you as a brave, valid, courageous warrior. You want it to be celebrated for your strength and for your power. And that was your reward for omeo Robbie, he and he will be thrown in hellfire. I want this to be an important precedent for you and I, my dear brother, to understand

00:12:14--> 00:12:55

that in my life in your life, so panela, we will not reach the level of these great great dilemma or these great philanthropists for the most part, or even for those who are able to give their life and their wealth to defend the weak in that greater sense of the term. But in my life in your life, there are moments of inconsistency in our righteous behavior, that can be a pathway to hell, not a pathway to a law. And when the prophets I seldom gives us these three massive examples. These examples that are maybe in my life in your life are not relevant to the greatest degree, but they are relevant in the morality of the story that we are to extract from it. You and I most of us, we

00:12:55--> 00:13:35

will not be those who are heads of federal commissions, we will not be those who are multimillionaires and estate owners who are giving and giving and giving. But I want you to know that it's the little things in life that are going to matter the most in your salvation on the Day of Judgment. And do not ever assume that a good deed done for the wrong reason is something that's blessed by Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala sells and warns us in the horror and and sort of tell for fun, that he will scatter the good deeds of people who did it for disingenuous reasons not for the sake of Allah habitat and men thora becomes like scattered particles of dust that is in the fella

00:13:35--> 00:14:26

that out in the desert, go and try to find your good deeds now. Go and try to find where you will be rewarded. Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us of doing something that shouldn't be for him, that is done for other than Him and the secret recipe of success. The thing that you and I should seek to strive for is to be as the Prophet describes in this authentic hadith, a hub of the most beloved and healthy Illallah of those who Allah loves or is an individual al Rani, at the key Allah Javi Pamela, somebody who is runny at wealthy but in the sense of wealth, as in somebody who does not need to rely upon others somebody who is able to sustain their own life, their family, they are not in need

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

of anyone. They they work hard, they put in effort they're not hands are not stretched out to others honey, wealthy and in excess self sufficient self content inside and outside. And it might be that they don't have a lot of material success, but they have a lot of contentment in the heart. Matt can lower Kapha that which may be small but it's sufficient. Higher is better. min max kathua l has something that is much more great in amount and magnitude but distracts you from your eventual return.

00:15:00--> 00:15:47

To Allah, so contentment elvina zinal called elvina. enlightenment and contentment and enrichment is the enrichment of the soul. vena nefs is that you have contentment in your heart. I look honey at somebody who is pious. Somebody who has taqwa loving of God fearing of God and hoping in God's mercy when they have fallen into error, and has strayed from the path and the third, and huffy, the one who doesn't want to stand out, the one who is not seen as the center of attention, the one who is in the Lord of the living room, that every conversation has to come through them, that if if people are on their own, and they don't give him some type, or her some type of acknowledgement that they're

00:15:47--> 00:16:30

they feel untoward. And I want you to know that it is the weak person in the room who always had the loudest voice I want to be so I tell them was not the loud one. He wasn't the first to speak. He wasn't the one who took aim at others. He wasn't the one who galvanized others. In fact, a lot has to, you know, speak to the Sahaba about the day of tomorrow. Well, either OTDR or 1011 in photo la prophesize Elon never said Hey, sit down. Don't you get up without me telling you don't you move without my permission? No. And they even Salatu Juma they got up and left when they saw the caravan to come in. Allah is the one who censored Allah is the one who brings them back because the prophets

00:16:30--> 00:17:09

I sell him with a person of this great nobility known in the heavens and the earth, but he was huffy. He was in a person who wanted to be celebrated the Sahaba in the Shama and we describe the complete characteristics of the prophets, I send them when people saw from a distance, Abu Bakr and the prophets, I sell them on account of Abu Bakr being white haired, and you know, you know, looking wise as well, and the prophets, I sell them from a distance, they wouldn't be able immediately to know which of them was the Messenger of Allah until they came a little bit closer and they saw that Abu Bakar was in the service of the prophets, I seldom would shade him and so on. Because he never

00:17:09--> 00:17:56

wore regal clothing. He never elevated himself on thrones and status and huffy. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the three qualities that lead to Jenna and that protect us from hellfire. There are also sins Allahu Akbar, that lead to paradise. There are scenes that lead to gender, there are scenes that can change your life and bring you back. The loss of Hannah with Allah gives so many examples in the Quran and the prophets. I seldom gives examples in the center. One of the vivid examples given in the sooner is where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he speaks about the man who killed 99 souls Pamela, imagine a person he was a murder. He was a pillager a person of of

00:17:56--> 00:18:36

disrepute in his land. And he comes and he speaks to a worshipper of God. And he says to him, can you know do you think God would ever forgive me? And the man who doesn't have knowledge but he's connected to God in his worship, but doesn't have Hickman doesn't have wisdom doesn't have knowledge? He goes, how can God forgive a man like you? You're a wretched soul? You're a murderer, man. Yeah. So he kills them. He acmella he kills them makes it 100 he killed 100 people. And as he's, you know, it's upsetting to him. But this is what I you know, if I have no hope, I have no hope. So he meets a righteous, knowledgeable person on him. And he says, halimun COVID Do you think

00:18:36--> 00:19:18

I can ever have a pathway back to God? And the man said, Who could ever block your path to go Of course you can. Of course you can return to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and make a repentance and a Toba and Inaba to Allah for a tubal Illallah Yeah, you're Latina Aminu to who is Allah? It's only the believers who repent to Allah. It's only those who have a conscious heart that understand the mistake leaks lead needs to lead them back to God's appointment with Allah to Allah Hito within those who ha, right, Allah subhanaw taala says Kalia a baddie livina a sort of Allah and puts him say to them My servants, my bad, my creation, who have wrong their own selves. latok not woman

00:19:18--> 00:19:44

Rahmatullah don't ever despair in my mercy. So the righteous knowledgeable man tell them of course you can repent to Allah but you're known here, your your companions here your whole life here is based on the haraam. How are you ever going to really stick to your repentance until you make the seven the change from the root cause leave the city leave this land, go to another place, start a new life, start fresh turn a new page.

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

And if you do so, Allah will light your path so the man makes a Zero Hedge or lava. The prophet SAW Selim tells us in the authentic hadith, Allah, Allah, Allah and Mohammed German Haji Roman, ha ha ha and I want who makes his euro to Allah.

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

The one who leaves what Allah has forbidden for them to what Allah wish wishes for them to be engaged in May Allah make us for those who are Mohajer from the scenes and coming ever closer to our creators apparently who went to Ghana. So as he's traveling to the new land to the new opportunity to a new page to a new beginning, death overcomes him. And he is closer to his repentance to the city of reformation than he is to the city of sin. So Allah forgives him his sins. So hon Allah, may Allah subhana wa tada open our hearts to this cause. And when you look into the life of the Sahaba when you look into the life of the tablet in some of the greatest examples, the best people who

00:20:43--> 00:21:21

carried Islam forward, were the reformed bad guys, they were the reformed criminals. They were the reformed rebels of their society, hardly the Middle Eastern European hottub class, they were referring people who had committed major atrocities against the believers and the prophets I said lambs companions and himself, his person peace and blessings be upon him and all the messengers before him. And NBI Ali Masada at mo tasleem.

I need to make a genre from the home to the Hillel from the bad to the good from the, from the back to the sooner from the scene to the righteousness I need to make an example that I'm in control. I'm the one in charge I'm the one whose hand whose phone whose eyes I'm the one who is in charge of it and that's what the shaitan

00:22:07--> 00:22:15

stories that the prophets I sell him told authentic stories. It's a beautiful book of Allah allow us to translate it one day in sha Allah for you. Now one of the Hadeeth in his head etha who is narrated by the man Muslim, where the prophets I send them says and usually when the Prophet tells the stories of the past, he will say, Can if human cannot publikum in the time before your time, there were those who lived at Raja LAN aha Villa, two men who loved one another. They were like brothers in the sight of God. They like they were so close. They were like blood brothers, although they weren't one of them slowly. One of them was a righteous man meaning outwardly sada doing the
