Do you want a

00:00:56--> 00:01:40

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah why Allah Allah, he was a happy woman, why the Ummah back. So, brothers and sisters, we have spent quite a long journey discussing what we know about the realities of jahannam. And we have gone through from the descriptions to the people to the sins to the issues of eternality to the various Delta jet and the various doors that we know of, and also the, the controversy over who are the most hobbled out off or the people of the the the plains or the slopes, or the mountain tops and all of this shallow data has been of great benefit to us. However, today's lecture is going to be ending our series of

00:01:40--> 00:02:23

jahannam with some very useful knowledge the whole point of this series is that we save ourselves from jahannam all that has preceded it is a knowledge that should motivate us in order to be saved from jahannam as Allah says in the Quran, femen Zhu Zhi Han Inari what would Hillel janitor philosophers, whoever is removed from the fire of hell, and is caused to enter agenda that is the person that has indeed won everything we want to be of the winners, and the only way to be a winner is to be saved from jahannam and to enter genda. Today's lecture will be the final lecture of the series of agenda in Sharla. And our next week we're going to be discussing beginning our series

00:02:23--> 00:03:08

jahannam Excuse me. Next week we'll inshallah beginning our series of genda. But today, we will discuss specific deeds and actions that Allah subhanho wa Taala or the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has explicitly mentioned as something that causes us to be saved from jahannam. Now, it is true to state every good deed is a factor to be saved from jahannam obviously, and therefore overall piety and taqwa and Iman and a class all of this is going to help us to be saved from jahannam. But today I wanted to concentrate on specific concepts or good deeds or rituals or specific symptoms, if you like that have been linked in the Quran, and especially in the sooner because we have a number

00:03:08--> 00:03:53

of them in the sooner that literally causality make a causal linkage. If you do this, usually you shall be saved from Johanna whoever does this shall not enter Johanna. So those are even more important for us to concentrate on and that's what we're going to try to do in shallow tada for today's lecture. Now, we will begin with the number one on that list and on any list of good deeds number one is a man in Allah subhana wa tada and the kalama and tauheed and colosse strong belief in Allah, nothing substitutes a man nothing, there is nothing that comes close to having a strong sense of Iman in the heart and putting our Eman or tawakkol in a class and our core sure and our love and

00:03:53--> 00:04:41

our hope and our fear all of it linking it to Allah subhana wa tada and all of that is manifested in the Kadima of La Isla in the law nothing substitutes the importance of that Kadima in the famous Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim whatever highlight the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the law. How Ramadhan nurseryman Colella Illa Illa Allah here butterly visa deca watch Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala has made the fire of hell prohibited how to Rama literally the word how to Rama. Allah has made how long the fire of hell to whom, whoever says La ilaha illa Allah sincerely desiring the pleasure of Allah. Brothers and sisters stop right here. Repeat after me.

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

In the law, make your heart more or less for the sake of Allah say it, desiring a luxury reward say it within with complete a man in a love knowing firmly that there is no creator there is no God there is no deity other than Allah subhana wa tada see it from

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

The heart with the utmost sincerity in order to be saved from the fire of hell law, in the law, the in, in law, law law you know, in the law that Kadima will save us from the fire of hell. In another Hadith our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Mammon hadn't yesterday Hello Allah ilaha illallah wa no Mohammed or pseudo la see the canonical de la aroma hola hola now that there is not a single person who testifies to La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sincerely from his heart he says it with sincerity. He says it truly knowing it to be true, except that Allah subhana wa Taala will make the fire of hell haram for him. Therefore do Muslims make sure that we say the Kadima

00:05:48--> 00:06:30

frequently, we say it loudly, we say it all the time we say it sincerely. We say it, knowing what it means believing in it. And understanding that there is no phrase that is more blessing than this kalama the number one factor to be saved from the fire of hell is the kalama of La ilaha illAllah. To be saying it from the heart sincerely upon the tongue, believing in it, applying it implementing it. Number two of the things that saves the fire from the fire of help. One of the most important things, which is again, something that is mentioned in the Quran as well is the constant prayer, always praying your son I want on time praying your Salawat in the proper manner, praying that you

00:06:30--> 00:07:07

saw what with punctuality. And this is again explicitly mentioned in the Quran, in that when the angels asked the people of jahannam How did you end up here? They will answer we were not of those who used to pray the first thing that they understand on their minds. We are here because we abandon the Salah, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that the prayer is a light and the prayer is in evidence. And the prayer is a means of being saved on the Day of Judgment. And in the Hadith in Sahih Bukhari how to Ramallah Juana naughty and I thought of sujood. Again, the phrase Hara Rama Allah now that's what I'm trying to find here in these lectures, and today's lecture,

00:07:07--> 00:07:53

anything in which jahannam has been made out on how to Rama Allahu Allah, Allah has made how long for the fire of hell what who, that the fire of hell touches or afflicts or eats any place on the body that did such that to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So anybody who did such that even occasionally, the meaning the Muslim that Yanni wasn't praying regularly committed major sins, even that person as we said, even if they are punished, through the fire of hell, we talked about the habit out of the believers who are punished for a period of time, even if they are punished, the fire of hell is not going to touch the places that did such that to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, then what will be the

00:07:53--> 00:08:33

case of the one who constantly did such the what will be the case of the one whose limbs were always engaged in more than 20 3040 searches a day, which is what the righteous Muslim will be doing right because the bare minimum number of records is seven and multi 17 per day, if you just did the bare minimum 17 and then you add the with it and then you add the sooner narrativa you will easily get 30 plus socket, and then you multiply that by two because that is obviously the number of soldiers so all of this was to show the one constantly doing such that for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada, that person in shallow to either will not even enter the fire of health, the one who regularly

00:08:33--> 00:09:13

prayed, you see, the previous Hadith is the one who just prayed on and off. And the Prophet system said the sage that is so beloved to Allah, that even that person who just prayed on and off the places that did such that which is going to be the hands and the face and the feet and the knees, the places that did such that at least they will be protected because there was that element of assure that they lowered their heads in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. However, as for the one who regularly prayed, had ethers reported in the Muslim Ummah, from Hummingbird, who say de that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said men have other idols sada till home see Allah will do one

00:09:13--> 00:09:21

more while TT ha whoo Korea was to do the ha ha ha ha. de la he la he held him. Hood Rema

00:09:22--> 00:09:27

Rema Allah now. So this is an authentic ID and Muslim environment. Listen to this carefully.

00:09:28--> 00:09:56

Whoever guards the print five prayers hafler. Whoever is praying the five prayers and protects their will do and their timings and they will record and their sujood and he knows he has doing his duty in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah will make the jahannam haram for him, her to Reema Allen, he will be made how long upon the fire of hell, therefore, dear Muslim now obviously this is

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

with the understanding that the one who prays

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

regularly insha Allah Allah, that person is not going to be murdering or plundering or you know raping. Understandably, when you get to that level of being very conscientious of your Salah, it is almost inconceivable that somebody is conscientious of their Salah, and they're also a mass murderer, for example, obviously, if that person is there, then they have to answer for those other sins and the Salawat is not necessarily going to save him. But the goal though the purpose of this hadith is to give the default ruling, the general ruling is that the person who is punctual and regular and persistent and guards the five prayers with the widow and the pm and the record and the

00:10:39--> 00:11:22

sujood, making sure that he does everything on time with punctuality, that person has achieved a level of eema insha Allah to Allah that at least the fire of help that person will be saved from. So this is an incentive for us to be very, very eager to be able to pray all of our prayers regularly and especially out of the prayers after the fall of prayer. Another prayer has been linked to being saved from jahannam in a hadith report in Abu Dawood and Timothy oma Habiba, the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that she heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that whoever prays for records before her, and for God after the her, that Allah subhana wa Taala shall

00:11:22--> 00:12:01

make the fire of hell, how long for him. And therefore these are the sunon of the soudan prayers of Lahore. So out of all of the sooner in prayers, each one has a blessing that others don't have. This is not to say that the others are not blessing. Our Prophet system said about the two records before ledger, that whoever does that it is better than this whole world and all that is in it. That's another blessing. But this blessing is first allowed to lower Why? Because the hood is a hot prayer, Lord is a prayer that is at the heat of the day, and you just tired and lethargic. If somebody is able to consistently pray for a cart before the horse and for a cart after the war, then the Prophet

00:12:01--> 00:12:46

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah has made jahannam how long for that person? Another specific good deed that is mentioned to be saved from jahannam is continual fasting for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To be persistent in our fasts and to fast for the sake of Allah. And the famous Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim Muslim Yeoman p sebelah. He by the law, what do you wanna naughty Sabina? halifa. Whoever fasts one day in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhana wa Taala will remove his face from jahannam for a distance of 70 spans of journey 70 Hadith which is 70 you know, years of travel or however long again, the word Cardiff has ambiguous meanings. The point is a

00:12:46--> 00:13:28

very far distance away. Now the phrase mon sama Yeoman fie sebelah whoever fast a day in the way of a law, the majority of scholars have interpreted at whoever fast while doing the good deed of being on illegitimate jihad in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala being on an expedition that whoever is able to combine being on a travel or a journey, that is for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala on an expedition and they fast on that day, that is the majority interpretation. Another group says Fie subete Allah can mean that in any good deed or any good any day that you're doing something good and you fast in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala, then you will also get that deed. And the point is

00:13:28--> 00:14:12

that this hadith tells us that fasting the extra fast for the sake of Allah is one of the ways to be saved from Johanna and in fact, this is an explicit Hadith reported in the Muslim Imam Ahmed as well that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, or somos junortoun Minh either below or so Mu junortoun min either Billa that fasting is a shield a barrier that will protect you from the punishment of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. So of the greatest of good deeds that will protect us from jahannam is too fast for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala another explicit thing that is mentioned in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to be of those whom Allah

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

loves to love Allah subhanho wa Taala and acidity Malik reports in the Muslim Ummah, Muhammad, that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, while law he will allow you look a level Habiba who now is authentic hadith that our Prophet system is giving a lesson or an oath. I swear by Allah He is saying that Allah shall never throw the one whom he loves into the fire of health law, you will have a law who Habiba who for now. So you have to be available a hug, but the one whom Allah has shown for how do we do this? We should go through the Quran, dear brothers and sisters and read every single verse that Allah says, will law who you hibou will law who you have been meeting in the

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

law you have been where you have been Matata him and make sure

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

That any characteristic that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves that we follow it and conversely, go through the entire Quran and any characteristic that Allah despises Allah hate that we stay away from it well lo hula you're able facade, Allahu la your herbal volley mean we have to be careful and avoid anything that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not love. So we do what we can to be of those whom Allah loves. And we avoid doing that which Allah does not love. And when we do that, we are getting into this promise of our prophets of Allah who idea he was saying that a law shall never throw those whom he loves into jahannam therefore we strive to be amongst those whom Allah subhana wa tada

00:15:41--> 00:16:22

loves. Another deed that has been explicitly linked to be saved from jahannam is to participate in a legitimate struggle in a legit legitimate expedition or Jihad disobedience to Allah. And again, this is something that in our days is not something that is common or easy to do because of the circumstances. But once upon a time, obviously, when do my ears were involved in offensive or defensive Jihad one Muslim lands were being invaded and people were fighting on behalf of the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is the type of jihad obviously, we have to give the disclaimer that what is happening now in the name of jihad by these movements, almost all of it is

00:16:22--> 00:17:03

definitely not what is intended by these verses and a hadith. But the hadith of praising legitimate jihad is something we should never be ashamed of. There is no question that when the Muslim lands are invaded, and people stand up and protect the innocent women and children and protect the lands of the Muslims, this is something that is legitimate Jihad feasability Allahu taala. And when in the early times, there was offensive jihad, then also that was a legitimate jihad. These days, of course, there cannot be any offensive Jihad given our political circumstances. So the point being, that we should not shy away that indeed there was, there are many blessings associated with a

00:17:03--> 00:17:48

legitimate Jihad VCB de la heeta Allah and of those are Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said hypothesis I Bahati that whoever's feats were dusted in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala those feet shall never touch the fire of hell, okay, or Allah has made Johanna out on for him, all of him. So once again, the notion of that person bit getting tired and struggling and walking in the sand doing for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhana wa Taala will make jahannam how long for him. So this is another good deed that is explicitly mentioned, in order to save yourself from jahannam. Yet another good deed that is explicitly mentioned that will help us to be saved from

00:17:48--> 00:18:33

jahannam is something that all of us can do every single night every single day, we should do this in private and in secrecy, what is that deed that is so blessed? That will save us from jahannam our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Hadeeth isn't soon an activity in any Latin was so Latin was so human, no two are the pair of eyes that the fire of hell shall never touch number one, I know and bucket one Harsha Tila and number two, I known but technically Sufi, sebelah. Two are the eyes that the fire of hell will never touch. Number one, the eyes that cried out of the fear of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And number two, the eyes that spent the night awake, guarding the lands of Allah

00:18:33--> 00:19:11

in the way of Allah once again, if you are a military, you know guard your being protecting the oma making sure the enemy does not invade, and you spend the whole night awake, you know, in a very dangerous situation for the sake of the oma. So this too, is something that has been mentioned goes back to the previous one of a legitimate struggle. But the point of this one is to cry for the fear of a law to cry out of a sense of desperation of one's own sins, to cry out of a yearning to meet Allah subhana wa tada and a yearning to get to love forgiveness, and somehow to lead your brothers and sisters. How rare is to really hear of such you know, talks and to read about such things. In

00:19:11--> 00:19:50

reality, the Quran praises those who cry out to the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala it really demonstrates a sense of utter utmost humility in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Try your best when you are all alone. This is not something that should ever be done in public unless you are overwhelmed and you cannot tell but otherwise the default is that one cries in privacy one cries when nobody else is watching and one opens up one's heart and confesses one sins to Allah subhanho wa Taala and admits one's faults and mistakes and shortcomings and begs Allah's forgiveness and asks a lot for his mercy. This is something that we should do regularly, and if we do it and our eyes are

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

overwhelmed with tears, then that is a very, very positive sign. We should try to do this as much as possible. So crying out to the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:20:01--> 00:20:03

Another deed that brings about

00:20:04--> 00:20:53

forgiveness and being saved from jahannam. Another deed that is explicitly linked to be being saved from jahannam is to demonstrate patience in times of severe adversity in times of great distress. And one Hadeeth in particular mentions a very distressful situation. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Hadith isn't a mercenary about a warrior up that there is no person who loses three of his children. And he is patient at that, except that the fire of hell shall not touch him. Okay, so being patient, now, you guys have to realize No, so about a lot in our days, the death of a child is something that is very, very rare. And we thank Allah for that do realize that, once upon a time,

00:20:53--> 00:20:59

it was actually very, very common. Remember, no vaccines, no inoculation. This was, you know,

00:21:00--> 00:21:38

rampant, you know, diseases and viruses and plagues and warfare, and what not to lose children was extremely common. In fact, it was the default. And that's why there was a higher birth rate, because it was expected that a few of the children were passed away. And three was, you know, it was not something that was very common, but neither was it uncommon to lose three. So it's something that, you know, maybe, you know, a small percentage of people but not just not like an insignificant percentage, but a group that is not a small amount. But still, it is something that was common, but not to the level that Danny, it's every second family or so. So the Profit System is saying that if

00:21:38--> 00:22:21

you are patient in that severe calamity, our scholars mentioned that this applies therefore, to any calamity. And there is no question that insha Allah to hire, we hope in our time in a day and age that this hadith applies to anybody who loses even one child because to lose one child in our era, is in fact more rare than it was to lose three children in the previous eras Actually, this is statistically true, because the mortality rate has not just gone down in half or in thirds, obviously, it can go has gone down to one 10th or one fifth, much less than it used to be, you know, 200 300 years ago, the mortality rate amongst children. It is one of the greatest achievements of

00:22:21--> 00:22:46

that Allah has blessed us with through modern science, and therefore, anybody who has lost a child shouldn't shout Allahu taala be optimistic that if they are patient, that there is a guarantee from Allah subhana wa tada that they will not be punished in the fire of hell. Another good deed that is explicitly mentioned is the good deed of charity, the good deed of giving sadaqa

00:22:48--> 00:23:25

once again, giving charity for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada is one of the most important ways to be saved from jahannam. In the famous Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was speaking to the women. And he said to them, the sadaqa give charity because I saw that the majority of inhabitants of the Hellfire that I saw, they were of the, they were from women. Now I've explained this in a previous lecture, that the majority of heaven and hell both are going to be women. And the point of this hadith was that women be extra generous in their charity. The point was not to denigrate them, and the point was to incite them to do better good deeds. But the point here

00:23:25--> 00:24:07

is that what one D did he mentioned? That he linked directly to be saved from Johanna You see, that's the point that I'm mentioning in this head either or this for this talk? What did he bring up to warn women to be saved from jahannam he said, give charity and in the other head, Ethan sahadi. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it will narrow wala will be shipped a camera, save yourself from the fire of hell, even if it be from a portion of a date or even the date seed something that is just a small or insignificant amount. Just keep on giving. keep on giving as much as you can for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. And then he said, If you cannot find something to

00:24:07--> 00:24:19

give, then a good word, a cheerful word, a word of encouragement. Therefore, we learn another thing to protect us from the fire of hell. And that is to be charitable, to be nice to be

00:24:20--> 00:25:00

people of generosity. And this leads us directly to the next point, which is one of the ways to be saved from jahannam explicitly linked in the Hadith is to have good manners to be humble, to be soft hearted, to be a person who is beloved to the people because of their good manners. In Timothy the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is reported to have said, a lot of bureaucrat Manya Hamada nury ob Manta Romani henault kulu. Caribe in Hainan says insell. The profitsystem said you only tell you do you want me to tell you who has been made prohibited from the fire of hell? They said who he said every person

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

Who is nearby when you need them? and easygoing and gentle corrib Hagen and Sal, everybody who's khateeb curry means when you need him he is there for you Hadid means he's always you know when you when you need a helping hand a shoulder to cry on you need a ride. You need some money you need. He's always there for your buddy. Hey Ian. He's humble. He and he doesn't have any arrogance. He's lowering himself, Sal easygoing, just nice nice to be around. He's not some nasty mean spirited you know, sharp tongue, no cell easygoing. So these three characteristics What do they all encompass Good luck. And therefore, our Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the one who has these

00:25:45--> 00:26:27

characteristics, the one who has good luck, that there is no question that the fire of hell has been made, how long for him? So this is yet another thing that we can add to our list of that which is going to make sure that we do not enter the fire of help. Yet another thing that we should mention is we already mentioned the Kadima and I should have tack this on over there but we can add it over here is that saying the kalama at the time of death in particular, I already mentioned and then point number one to say that kenema with the claws with silk and whatnot Okay. Now, another point we can add is that to say the kalama at the time of death, if we are able to say that Kadima when we

00:26:27--> 00:27:10

pass away, then in sha Allah who to Allah This is a sign that the doors of gender have opened up, and the doors of jahannam have closed in the Hadith in Abu Dawood. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Men can Africa mihaela illa Illa la de Hillel agenda. Whoever manages to say la ilaha illAllah as his last breath shall enter agenda so that had he thinks it agenda in another head Ethan Eben Marja, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said it's a long hiatus a beautiful Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Man, Allah Allah, Allah illallah wa Allahu Akbar, whoever says this, Allah will say, you have spoken the truth, there is no god but me and I am a cabal. And whoever says La

00:27:10--> 00:27:56

ilaha illallah wa who Allah will say yes, indeed, there is no God and I am worthy. I am by myself unique. Whoever says that either in the lower the hula shriek Allah, Allah xojo will affirm that as well. Whoever says La ilaha illa Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah azza wa jal will also say la ilaha nll McClelland and whoever says La ilaha illallah wa ala How will our quarter in the villa, Allah will affirm that as well. And then the Prophet system said, Man, Allah haffi model de Mata lamb, Tata m, who and whoever says this phrase when he falls sick and then passes away, then the fire of hell will never touch him. So, this hadith indicates a very important point and that is, how does

00:27:56--> 00:28:36

one guarantee that one will say la ilaha illAllah at the time of death? While there is no guarantee there's no guarantee, but you can try and how do you try? Look at this hadith keep on saying the Kadima in all of his variations. La la la la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la La, la, la la la vida who knows shanika La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Al Hamdulillah krisha de la ilaha illallah wa Hola, hotevilla. Just keep on saying the Karima with all those permutations. And if you were persistent to say it when you were alive, then inshallah, Allah will bless you to say it at the time of your death. And that's our goal. And if we say that the time of our death, then what did the

00:28:36--> 00:29:18

Prophet system say, that person shall enter agenda and that person shall never enter the fire of hell. We should all make dua to Allah that Allah make the last phrase that we ever say, the Illa Illa Allah Muhammad Rasulullah we should make a sincere to Allah to Allah, that that'd be our last phrase. So that inshallah tada we enter agenda and the fire of jahannam is forbidden upon us. Also of the ways that in fact the Quran and Sunnah is very clear on and one of the most important ways and I'll go into a little bit of, you know, extra detail here just so that we are understanding of this, but of the ways that is very explicit in the Quran and Sunnah is constant due to a law to be

00:29:18--> 00:29:59

saved from jahannam constant, to Allah to be saved from jahannam that we always make dua that Allah protect me from the fire of hell, a llama a journeyman and a llama Penny either but now that that alarm was defined neither but jahannam turn away from Messiah Johanna and if you look at the two hours of the Quran Subhana Allah dozens of phrases are in the Quran so many hours about being saved from jahannam so many two hours inserted for on Allah subhana wa tada describes the believers in a long series of verses. And he says, Well Athena or Luna Robin as refined either by Johanna in either Karna Rama

00:30:00--> 00:30:41

India has Mr Khurana karma they make dua to Allah. Allah turn us away from the addabbo Jehan them indeed it's either visit painful torture in Surah, Allah and Milan at the beginning of the surah. And at the end of the surah, both, in other words, the whole surah the beginning and ending, begin and with what we do ask to be saved from Johanna in the beginning, Allah says, Allah dinero pueden urban Indian Amanda fulfilled in una joaquina Durban now, the believers are those who they say Oh Allah we have believed, forgive us and save us from the fire of hell. And then at the very end, the last page robinair Mahabharata Hadith about the loss of Hanukkah Falconer either but now, our Lord,

00:30:41--> 00:31:23

You have not created this whole creation in vain. So save us from the fire of hell felina either but now and of course we can go on and on the famous suit of the Baccarat that woman whom in your pool robina attina Jr. has an hour an hour for the half an hour cleaner either now with the homeless woman marketable. So very explicitly, Allah subhana wa tada tells us in the Quran, to constantly make dua to be saved from jahannam. And if you look at even the student of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would make sure to be saved from jahannam constantly, we have so many ideas that in fact, we didn't even don't have time today to go into all of them. But for example, the

00:31:23--> 00:32:06

Prophet sallallahu I sent him with every single seller before saying they sell them he would make this drop that arrived, as you've said, that he would say that the profit system would say or be thinner either vacuum whatever I thought about that, oh, my Lord, save me from your punishment when you resurrect your creation. He would say this in the Salah, before saying that the slim and after finishing the slim as well. He would say this, the as well, that a lot in the Arabic community. That'd be jahannam he would seek refuge from the addabbo Johanna. And during the vicar sessions, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that the angels they go up and Allah subhanho wa Taala asks the

00:32:06--> 00:32:49

angels, how did you leave my servants and the angels will say they were seeking refuge in You, Oh Allah, and Allah will say and he knows the answer, Allah will say what were they seeking refuge? And they say, the angels will say they were seeking refuge from the fire of hell. Allah will say, have they seen it? The angels will say no, Allah will say what if they saw it, the angels will say they would even be more eager to be saved from it, and more fearful of it. And so Allah will answer so go so I call you witness that I have protected them from Johanna, I have forgiven them for their sins and protected them from jahannam. This Hadith indicates that the people who constantly ask a loss

00:32:49--> 00:33:17

forgiveness and ask Allah to be protected from jahannam Allah will call the angels to witness and Allah will say, these creations of mine the servants of mine are so eager TVC from jahannam, and they haven't even seen it. And therefore because of that, I shall protect them from Johanna. So this is very important. In fact, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would even pause his rest his recitation from the Quran

00:33:18--> 00:33:56

and that's something to think about the Subhanallah when you reading the Koran is the highest form of Vicar and when you're reading it outside of sada outside of Salah, our Prophet sallallahu wasallam would not inside so outside of Salah anytime there was mention of Jenna, he would stop and he would ask Allah virgin. And any time there was mention of jahannam he would stop recitation and seek Allah's refuge from jahannam. And so this is something that is very, very common. And in fact, every night before going to sleep, our mother have sought out the law of wine. he narrates that whenever our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would want to go to sleep, he would put his right

00:33:56--> 00:34:33

hand under his cheek that was his personal habit. It's not something that is sooner per se. It's something that he himself would do. He would put his right hand under his cheek and then he would say, Allahu makini Baca yo metabo I thought about the koala, save me from your punishment when you resurrect your creation three times he would say this, and it is also reported that our Prophet salallahu Arsenal would regularly make dua Aloma in Nero do became the castle he will her army will Melkor army will come along in Nero do becoming either be naughty will fit that in it will fit that hilltopper reported in Bahati once again, I seek refuge in You from the verb of the note the idea of

00:34:33--> 00:34:59

the cover and the fitna of the nap. Now all of these clearly indicate dear brothers and sisters, that we should constantly make dua to Allah to protect us from jahannam it should be a part and parcel of our do ours in fact, this should be the bulk of our two hours. Oh Allah we want Jenna we would seek refuge in Jehan Allah forgive us and grant his gender and protect us from Johanna. This should be our constant to our to Allah

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

Hi Natasha.

00:35:02--> 00:35:03

Simple question.

00:35:04--> 00:35:50

What do you think will be the fate of the one who asked a law 1000s of times throughout the course of the 50 6070 years of worship to law 1000s 10s of 1000s, hundreds of 1000s of times? What do you think shall be the fate of the one who constantly asked Allah to be saved from Johanna? Surely Allah will accept one of those 10s of 1000s of times, surely just once, that's all we need, just $1 to be accepted. Robin, Jr. has said, We're the alpha there has been our cleaner either one. That's all and hamdulillah we have been successful. That's why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Listen to this hadith is sensitivity undecide narrated by a Sunni Malik the prophets of Allah who I said

00:35:50--> 00:36:39

him said, Whoever asks a lot three times for Gen four Jenna, Jenna itself says, Oh Allah cause him to enter Gen. Enter me and whoever seeks refuge in Allah three times from janam janam itself says Oh Allah, let him not enter me. JOHN them itself says I don't want this person Subhan Allah three times sincerely. If you ask Allah, Allah Khomeini Silikal. Jen Alemany cynical Jen alarming cynical Jenna. Jenna itself desires you and if you say a llama Nero to become an alumna or to become an intimate alumna or to become an intimate three times you say it, then jahannam itself says I don't want you to go up there. So Pinilla. So this shows us the frequency of wanting to have to enter agenda and

00:36:39--> 00:37:18

constantly asking a lot to protect us from the fire of hell. So of the ways to protect ourselves from jahannam is to raise our hands to Allah subhanho wa Taala and sincerely asked a lot constantly, frequently with a man with understanding that we don't want to enter the punishment of Allah, the fire of hell. And of course, these are some points that are explicitly linked but in the end of the day, any good deed, obedience to Allah saves us from jahannam as Allah says, In Surah Nisa, one minute to Allah hawara Sula, who utility Jeanette and as you've attacked it and how to hide in a few How would that echoes that alim. whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, Allah will cause him to

00:37:18--> 00:37:58

answer Janet woman Yeah, c'est la hora Sula, who were to add the producer who would who do not on Holly then fee What do I double Mohit, whoever disobeys a lot in his messenger and transgressors beyond the red lines that a large region has not allowed that person a low cost to enter the fire, and he shall be there and he shall have a humiliating punishment. So very simple, good deeds and piety lead to agenda and save from jahannam bad deeds and impiety save, turn you away from Jenna and take you towards jahannam It's very simple. Now, for the rest of the lecture in this how we're going to conclude inshallah Tada, this talk about all of the the issues of jahannam.

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

I wanted to mention a very beautiful passage from shareholders that have been Tamia.

00:38:07--> 00:38:54

And it's a passage that he summarizes for us, the famous is one of his most famous passages, he summarizes for us the 10 factors through which a person might be able to be saved from jahannam because of a sin that he has committed. And of these 10, the first, you know, three or four are what we aim for the rest of them, we don't necessarily aim for them, but if it happens, it is better than jahannam. Okay, so even taymiyah says, These are the 10 factors that cause one sins to be dissolved to be taken care of, in a way that they don't have to get to jahannam for Okay, so we're going to finish off our entire series by quickly going over this list, very simple list of beautiful list,

00:38:54--> 00:39:35

and I want you all to pay attention and to memorize, we need to take notes. It's a beautiful list. And to be honest, it really shows how perceptive Yvan Tamia is that he's reading the entire Quran and Sunnah. And he's extracted from the Quran and Sunnah 10 mechanisms via which one's sins are gotten rid of, or at least taken care of, because some of these are lesser punishments than johannah. And between the two, we'd rather have the lesser punishment. But if we can choose we don't even want to get there and want to get get rid of them without any punishment. And that will be done in the first three methods, what we do and then the fourth and fifth is not something we can cause

00:39:35--> 00:39:59

but basically it happens by Allah's blessings and then six, seventh and eighth and ninth and 10th this is something that you don't we don't aim for, we'll get to this. Now, what is number one, number one and number two we'll discuss together because really, they are the same concept number one and number two, number one or number two are tober and is still far doba and is still far now even taymiyah puts them into separate categories, because in reality, there is slight difference between them. Toba is a state of the art

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

is still thought is an action of the tongue Toba is the state of mind is still far is the deed. Toba is emotional is still far is action based, and that's why he puts them into separate categories. But in reality, Tobin is default really, they are intertwined in that Adobe necessities is still fall, and it is still far incorporates, though, but you cannot really do Toba properly without doing is still far. And if you do still fall properly, you've already included the step of doba in it. And so Tobin is still far this is the most important two mechanisms via which we want to get rid of all of our sins, and they are completely gone. If we do that properly. If we repent to Allah subhanho wa

00:40:42--> 00:41:24

Taala as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the one who repents from the sin It is as if he has never done it at all literally wiped away, and is still far as well wipes away the sins a lot is a lot of food and a lot of lows. The ones who does is to fall and allies or jet forgives when you ask his forgiveness. So Tobin is default. Number three, another mechanism that we can do to erase the sins that we have done so that we don't have to face jahannam. Number three, is doing good deeds, doing good deeds, as Allah says in the Quran, in the vicinity. Youth, humanists say that doing good deeds causes evil deeds to go away. So we have to be extra vigilant. When we do something

00:41:24--> 00:42:04

evil and all of us do evil, we have to make that up in order to get rid of the evil deed, as the one who did some sin came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he did a good deed as well after that, and the prophets have said to him, didn't you do this good deed as well. He said, Yes. So this good deed has caused that deed to go away. So we increase our good deed, with the recognition and knowledge that we're doing this to erase our sins. That's a very important point. So point number three has enough doing good deeds, point number four, that causes our sins to dissolve our sins to erase away, point number four. Now, we can't necessarily, you know, do it ourselves. But

00:42:04--> 00:42:46

if we live a certain lifestyle, it will be done for us. What is point number four, the righteous believers asking Allah to forgive you? Do I have the believers for others? Do I have the believers in this world, and even at the time of your death in your janaza prayer, and then after your death as well. So point number four, is somebody raising his hands and say, oh, Allah forgive so and so I will bless so and so Oh, Allah caused this person to rank rise to his rank to rise in gender. And at the time of your death, you have a large janaza prayer, and everybody is sincerely praying, Oh Allah, this person helped me a while let this person did this, and that I will lead this. And so you

00:42:46--> 00:43:07

ask Allah to forgive. And then when the person is gone, there are people that are going to be making to offer you and maybe doing a good deed for you doing ombre or hedge on your behalf, or doing something of this nature, that is something that will also bring about forgiveness, and your children making us still far that will allow my father did this, my mother did that, you know, forgive their sins. Now, question to all of you,

00:43:08--> 00:43:52

you obviously are not going to be able to dictate to other people that they make is still far for you, that they remember you when you're gone. There is nothing really that you can do directly, to cause yourself to have a large janazah there's nothing that you can do directly to guarantee that after you die, people are gonna do good deeds and gift them on your behalf. But you can do something indirectly, that will inshallah huhtala maximize that. And what is that impact the greatest number of people through your generosity and good deeds, impacting them through your sadhaka your knowledge, your kindness, your charity, do something to change the lives of other people such that

00:43:52--> 00:44:30

when your life is gone, and their lives continue, they shall remember you they should make to offer you such that when the news comes that so and so passed away, hundreds 1000s of people will flock they will leave their jobs, they will stop what they're doing. And they will say the least that I can do after all that he's done is to attend this person janazah it makes sense here to have for him. So live your lifestyle, benefiting other people says that when you can no longer do that, they will ensure a low to either benefit you for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala this is point number four that the drop of the believers and is the fault of the believers and the good deeds of the

00:44:30--> 00:44:59

believers after the person passes away. And of course there are many, many a hadith in it about this and I gave a whole lecture when we did this series of the bottles off if you listen to the last lecture of that series I went over the positions of the vast majority of Roma who say that you may gift good deeds to the dead This is the default position and you may indeed do so. And you may of course by unanimous consensus you can make is the fall for any dead person any Muslim that passes away anyone made to offer them that all law Forgive me Mama Bahati.

00:45:00--> 00:45:32

A lot you know, Grant even hydrogen for those who Allah bless you've been Tamia you know, in his cupboard we can make these drawers for those that have gone on for the Imams, and for our deceased relatives, your uncles and aunts and mothers and fathers and grandmothers and what then make dua for them and that will definitely reach them and benefit them. So that is point number four, that two out of the believers while they're alive as well, by the way, don't forget that that you can make do I wonder alive that it will love bless them and forgive their sins and you know, give them a long life full of human and taqwa and when they pass away, which is that our two janazah and after that

00:45:32--> 00:45:47

they can continue as well. So this is point number four, that is the draw of the believers for the other believers and inshallah also make to our for your teachers and those that benefit you as well. Hinton insha Allah Tada. Point number five

00:45:49--> 00:46:26

is that the point number, sorry, excuse me, I'm point number four and five, I put them together, you can separate them even taymiyah puts them separate, separate and put them together. Point number four, he says do our point number five is good deeds. In fact, it is really one category and that is what others do for you. Right? So even taymiyah says if they make dua, he puts the number four, and if they gift, a good deed is point number five, I mixed them all up because really, it's the concept of somebody else doing it for you. Point number six, which is one of our ultimate goals, but we cannot immediately aim for it. It is a gift that comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Point number

00:46:26--> 00:47:08

six is the shefa of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the shefa of the Prophet Sall, Allahu Allah, he was selling them because there will be people that have done sins that have done evil, and they deserve to be punished, but they will come on the Day of Judgment. And because of the shofar of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they will not be punished, they will be saved from jahannam and this hadith is insane Muslim, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, my Shahada is meant for the major centers of my oma, there will be people who deserve to be punished. And because of the shofar of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, they shall be saved from Japan. And I talked over

00:47:08--> 00:47:42

the concept of Shiva in a lot of detail. When I did the Day of Judgment, I did a whole series of the Day of Judgment before this series. That's what led to our series of Heaven and Hell, as you're aware, I hope you're aware of this inshallah Tada. It's a whole series that I've done. Remember, guys, this is a continuous series, we did the signs of the Day of Judgment, right. And then we did the borders, and a lot of detail. And then we did the actual day of judgment. And then we're doing now descriptions of jahannam. And then we will do gender. So this is five series linked back to back it is the journey of the soul that we are doing here, this journey of basically the entire end of

00:47:42--> 00:48:24

times, and then afterwards. And so in that series, I mentioned this issue about the shefa of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how do you get the shefa of the prophets of Allah? Why do you send him two things primarily, number one, perfecting the kalama La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah. And number two, lots of Salawat upon the prophets a lot while he was sitting, right, so sending Salatin Salaam, asking Allah subhana wa Taala to grant him the receipt and the felida. So you following the sun loving the prophets of the law? Why do you send them sending salats upon him is also one of the ways that you can get the shafa of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. That

00:48:24--> 00:48:44

is point number six, point number seven. And this is not no so the first six are all positive and good. And there's no negatives with them, right? Seven, eight and nine. They are better than jahannam. But not things we aim for, we would rather skip over point number seven, eight and nine, right. So to be again,

00:48:45--> 00:49:37

clear here that the first three of them is that we want to do we aim to do the next three we cannot really aim to do it's there. It's there. The next three after the seven eight and nine These are things we do not want. But if they happen, then at least we can console ourselves that insha Allah tala it can be used to save ourselves from john. Okay. Point number seven is what is the calamities, the griefs, the anxieties, the stress, the pain, the suffering that happens to us when we're alive. And we have a man in a law throughout that timeframe. Whoever has a man in a law and remains firm, while calamities are happening is patient, the anxieties in our hearts the grief, the worries, the

00:49:37--> 00:49:59

physical pain, the stress, the politics around us, whatever is happening, and we maintain our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Every single pain and calamity is going to be used by a lot to forgive our sins, rather than being punished in jahannam. Next time you're under stress, next time you have a sickness. So much so the profits

00:50:00--> 00:50:23

Assam said, even a thorn that pricks you, Allah forgives your sins don't look forward to pain and punishment, don't want to be under stress. But when you are under stress and feeling pain and anxiety, console yourself, inshallah, who to Allah, Allah is reading me of my sins so that I don't have to deal with them. And in the AF era in the fire of help.

00:50:25--> 00:51:08

That is point number seven point number eight is that the even taymiyah says that point number eight, all that happens in the cupboard of the fitna, and we seek others refuse the either job, and the tightening of the cover, and the darkness of the public and the anxiety of the other and any type of terror of the cover. Right? Once again, there will be Muslims who are sinful, and they might deserve to be punished in jahannam. But Allah subhanho wa Taala, because of the good that this person has done, will allow them to be saved from jahannam, but be punished in a lesser degree to a lesser point in the eyes out of the cupboard, or through the fitting of the cover or through the

00:51:08--> 00:51:47

squeezing of the cover. And therefore that is another reason that we don't want to go through any of that, right? We don't want to have any of the cover. We don't want to have any darkness won't our cover to be a vast place of light and a place of peace. But there will be those that are on the other side. And they'll have to answer for their sins. Through the punishment of the cover. We seek Allah's refuge. That is point number eight. Point number nine is the anxieties and the pains and the grief and the fear and the terror on the Day of Judgment, right. So eight, nine and 10 is chronological. Eight is in this world. Nine is in the house, sorry, 789 sorry, 79 7897. And so

00:51:47--> 00:52:30

chronological seven is in this world, the problems and the pain and anxiety, eight is in the cover. And nine is on the Day of Judgment. On the day of judgment. Once again, there will be some people we want to be amongst them. Allah says in the Quran, warm and fuzzy in Yama even be known, they shall be safe from all of the anxiety on that day, we want to be amongst those people, not feel any grief, be peaceful, we know what's going to happen, we're going to be confident and happy. And a lot of xojo will protect us. That's what we want. But there's going to be a lot of people that default, they shall be terrified, they shall be scared. And there's going to be tests and trials on that day.

00:52:30--> 00:53:06

Some people will be thirsty, tired, hungry, even though they were Muslims. Some people will be in the direct sun, some people will not know whether they're going to get their book in the right and the left. And we went over all of this when we talked about the issues of the day of judgment itself, and eventually they shall be saved. But that grief, even those that are struggling to get over those rocks, even those that their light goes out, even those that might even fall into the you know the tsunami a little bit and then fall out, you know, may slip let's say slip because again, the hooks are going to come and scars, somebody that hook that comes in scars, the profitsystem

00:53:06--> 00:53:45

said, some of them they're going to scar but still gets safe. So the hooks going to come and scratch them, but they're not going to get dragged down. What's the purpose of that scratching? Why did that happen? That person did something to deserve punishment. And he was deserving to go into jahannam. Maybe he heard somebody took somebody right. Maybe he said a word that was Bunim against somebody maybe he slandered somebody, maybe he stole somebody's money, maybe he did something he should not have done and he deserves to be punished, but because of other good deeds, the hook is going to come scratch him and he shall continue onwards that point right there is his cathar to be saved from

00:53:45--> 00:54:27

jahannam. And therefore that is point number nine the issues that will happen on the Day of Judgment of all of the pain and suffering and anxiety and the grief. And then point number 10 which is something we do aim for but obviously we can only ask for it. And that is the pure generosity of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is without any cause, that our hammer and the Mo Farah and the Quran of Allah subhana wa tada that he gives, even to those who don't ask for a reason that he knows that's something that happens, you cannot The only Allah is the one who chooses to give whom he wants. Even some people shall be forgiven for their sins. And they didn't even ask us forgiveness for reasons

00:54:27--> 00:55:00

that Allah subhana wa Taala knows because Allah knows what is in the hearts and Allah knows piety and righteousness from those that are not righteous and pious. So these are the 10 points once again, the first three are what we aim for. Number one is our is default number two is our doba and number three, and number one is ours too far. Number two is our Toba. Number three is the good deeds that erase the bad deeds. And then the next is that which we cannot, you know directly do. Number four is the death of the believer.

00:55:00--> 00:55:38

For other believers, number five is the good deeds of the believers for the other believers. Number six is the shift out of the prophets of the law who I said I'm so four or five and six are other people doing for you. And then seven, eight and nine, we don't want them the calamities of this world, the fitness of what is happening in the cover, and then what is going to happen on the Day of Judgment, we don't want them and then the final thing out of all of them is the author of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is what our aim and our goal is. So dear brothers and sisters, this brings us to the final conclusion of our entire series about jahannam. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to

00:55:38--> 00:56:18

Allah with all of his names and with his gelatt and Ekrem and we ask Allah by his noble face We ask Allah subhana wa tada because we believe in Allah, we ask Allah subhana wa tada as those who testify to learn in law in the law, Muhammad Rasulullah We ask Allah subhana wa tada as those who pray regularly, and those who do will do and those who try to establish the salah, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala as those who give Zakat and charity and as those who fasts for the sake of Allah, we ask Allah as those who strive to be of good love that because of all of this, that he protects us from the fire of hell, Allahu mokena, either documented barteri by the alomost, refined either by

00:56:18--> 00:56:43

jahannam in either berkana varoma or abandon it and if it doesn't, you're heceta often it hasn't worked in either but now and with that, inshallah Tada. In our next lesson, we will begin our final series of this very long series that I've been doing for a year and a half and that is going to be the series about a Jana May Allah make us of the people of Jen until then a Santa Monica warhammers will la he will barakato
