Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah or Allah Allah He was happy I mean, why should the en la la la wahoo la sharika why shadow and Mohammed and Abdo solo
Alhamdulillah it's my pleasure to be here and I'm given an auspicious task to frighten all of you to death in sha Allah so forgive me.
Every single moment of our life, every single moment of every human beings life, we are heading in one of two directions. No matter what we're doing with our life. at whatever moment in a baby. We're going either one of two directions, either we are heading towards the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal creator, which we know the pleasure of Allah leads to Jenna, or we are heading towards the displeasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala as well. And we know the displeasure of Allah azza wa jal leads us to jahannam. And that's something that many of us, including myself, failed to reflect on, at any point in our day, which which which direction Am I going right now are the actions that I am
doing taking me towards gender, or as are the actions that I am doing, taking me towards jahannam all human beings failed to take this reflection every single day. But this is the reality. And unfortunately, the reality for the majority of the world is that they are heading in the wrong direction, including many of us. At any point in our lives, we are heading in the wrong direction, towards jahannam. And if realistically, realistically, if we remembered this final destination of jahannam it should frighten us enough to push us back towards the right direction. Because we know that some of us and many of us are directed by fear. Fear is a very motivating factor. When you are
afraid of something, it causes you to act in ways that you would not normally act people who have feared do things that they would never contemplate that they had the possibility to do. All of you know that if you were being chased by a pitbull through the streets of London, you will probably run a lot faster than you have ever ran in your life due to that fear. And that fear sometimes will motivate us a lot quicker than the the hope for some reward. But we know the proper position is the vein of helpful what our job that we are between hope and fear. But today I want to kind of push us back towards the the the fear area in sha Allah by just giving you a short reminder of the
punishment that Allah azza wa jal has for those who disbelieve in him, for those who disobey Him. And for those who live a life that is in disagreement with what he has revealed and given to us through the book of Allah and through the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam
and when Hell is referred to in the Quran, and through the Sunnah, there are a variety of names that has been given to the final destination of those whom Allah azza wa jal is displeased with. And just a few of them. We know Allah azza wa jal calls Hill, Josephine in the Quran, because of the intensity of which blazing fire. Allah also calls the Quran jahannam because of the depths of the pits of Hell, he calls it jahannam we know that Allah as the gel also refers to the Hellfire as ear because it is kindled and ignited. Because Allah has kindled and ignited his fire for the people who are he is displeased within this believe in him. Allah also calls it Safar which means
the intensity the severity of its heat, and a lot also refers to the in the Quran as hematoma hakama. Meaning that whatever goes into it is crushed is crushed and broken into pieces. And this is just a small number of
The descriptions or the names that Allah has which Allah has given to those who will enter into the blazing fire.
I just want to shortly describe to you and because of the fact of the brevity of time and not going to give you verse and narration and ahaadeeth and book number and reference points and all of these things, but insha, Allah, Allah, these are all coming from authentic sources. The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam described in a number of Hadith, what the end is for those who are destined to go to the fire.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when death reaches any of us, one of two ways that death is going to come. For those who Allah azzawajal is displeased with, who have led an immoral life, who have disbelieved in Him who have worshipped other than him. It is not a pretty seen whatsoever. And we all should ask a lot as well every day to protect us from this end, as we heard, check us and say that's the final ending of our life is what is really going to matter. And for those who are as Virgil is displeased with, he said, when the Angel of Death comes to them,
he comes descending with many angels. And the angel of death comes in the most horrible look, and the most wicked of fashions, very scary.
And the angel descends, carrying with him
a shroud from jahannam that is made of fibers of hair, that is so harsh, that it is designed to torture the body, and that trout is smelling and stinking of smoke.
And the angel will sit at the head of the person
and everyone around them will be looking with miserable faces and no one will see this except for the person. And the angel will sit at the head of that individual
and say to it, oh, you wicked soul.
Come out to the displeasure of Allah and His anger and his wrath. And the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said the fear that soul has it starts to run around in the body. It starts to trying to find a way to escape coming out. And so the angel has to reach in and yank that soul out. And the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam described that yanking of the soul out as if someone takes a thorny branch and puts it into a ball of wool that is wet, and then extracts it. We know that that thorny branch would tear and rip the pieces of oil that comes out. He said, this is how the soul of those who Allah is displeased with comes out, it tears and rips the veins. And it is so painful that the
Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said that the pain of that death will still be visible upon that person on the Day of Resurrection, that they will still be visibly in pain, from the death of the ripping out of that soul, on the day of judgment. And when that soul falls out, the angels step back. No one wants to touch it. No one wants to put their hands on it. Because it is falling, stinking. And so the angel of death itself will take it and wrap it in that filthy shroud from jahannam.
And then the angel will begin to dis to ascend. As we know in Allah when Allah Hara God, every soul came from aligned to a light must return. So when the angel proceeds to the heavens, the angel asked for permission to enter, and to take this soul to Allah azza wa jal. And no response comes from the angel. Except there is a voice heard from a top of the heavens, from the altar of Allah as Virgil. Allah responds to that request and says, send it back.
send it back, despised and rejected to the Day of Judgment. And so that so is thrown back into the grave, thrust back into the grave, despised and rejected.
And then we know I should ask them told us the angels will come monka wanna kill? And we'll ask the questions. Man, Rob book, who was your Lord? And that soul will say even for some of us, who did not live a life
that was incongruent he was that which we speak, maybe is that Allah will not give us that steadfastness to answer these questions.
So they will respond. I don't? I don't know. I don't remember I can't, I can't think there is no time for you to figure it out. The angel will hit that soul and turn it into dust. Whoo. Maddie, look, what was your religion? I don't know. And again, it will be smashed woman or a woman? And who is your Prophet, I don't know, and it will be smashed again. And then those angels will leave it.
And then someone will come and sit next to that person. And that person will look so evil so wicked, that the soul will say that the person will say, Who are you, you I've never seen is anything as wicked as you? Who in the world are you?
And that person will reply, I am your wickedness. I am your wickedness and your disbelief. I am your evil deeds. And I am here to keep you company. Until the day you meet, you're reminding them every single moment of why you're here. Why you have went through all of these trials are because of me. And then the Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam
every one of you who dies, they will be shown in the morning and in the evening, their place in akhira.
If they are the people of gender, they will be shown the place of the people of gender and will be reminded This is your position. On shear This is your position. But if they are the people of jahannam, they will be shown the people of jahannam where they will rest and they will be told this is your resting place. There is no good news for you today, nor will there ever be any good news for you. And a lot as Magellan tells us in sorrowful unfurl.
And if you can see, a law says if you could see on Hamad, when the souls come to take When the angels come to take the souls of those who disbelieve they smack them on their faces. They hit them on their backs and tell them
the punishment of the blazing fire. This is because what your hands have seen forward before you and Allah is never unjust to any of his slaves. This is what awaits those who realize displeased with
him and then leave me alone Allah protect us from this and we seek refuge in Allah from this.
the Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam said in a very beautiful Hadith
when Allah azza wa jal created Jenna when Nora, Allah told Angel jabril alaihe salam, go see that which I have created.
And when jabril la he said I'm went to see Jenna and all of its pleasures, he said, But Allah, I swear by you, I don't think anybody who hears about this place will fail to enter it. And then when he went to see Nara, and all of the punishments that are there, he came back and he said, Yeah, Allah.
I don't think that anyone who hears of this will go near it. And then Allah azza wa jal surrounded gentlemen, by hardships, by tribulations by tests.
And he said, Go see it now. And when he saw it, he said by Allah, I don't think anyone will make it. I don't think anybody can make it. And when Allah azza wa jal took, nor he surrounded by
temptations and pleasures, and laziness.
And when Jabir la ceramsite he said, Yeah, Allah, I don't think anyone is going to escape from this. I don't think anybody will escape from this. Because going to Hellfire is easy. You don't really have to do anything.
It's a very easy road, to go to jahannam. Just do whatever you want to do. And this is what they tell you in work and in life. Do what you wish. Life is like a box of chocolates. Just eat and eat and eat.
But we all know and you all should know you shouldn't need a reminder of what jahannam is like
that going down that easy road is not always going to be an easy destination. Because you might have the ease in this life. It might be easy to sleep over during fudge. That might be the easy thing to do. It might be easy to give
To our temptations, it might be easy to keep staring at that system when you know you shouldn't. It might be easy to talk about this brother when everyone is talking about them. It might be easy to disobey Allah. But we know that that ease is going to turn into eternal hardship. And there is no transaction that is worth that.
even told me Rahim, Allah, Allah scheffel Islam, even Tony Rahim, Allah to Allah, he was asked by someone, what will take me to hell? What will take me to help
me train me a riddle rope. He listed off a number of things. And I'm going to go through them quickly for time sake. But what I want you to think about is how many of them Am I guilty of? How many of these things that I know lead to hell am I guilty of
and at that point in my life, and maybe still today I'm walking a path that ends in this death that ends in the angel of death and meeting me in a horrible fashion, dragging my soul out, tossing into the grave being smashed, being shown jahannam how many times in my life have I stepped in that direction? He said what leads to Hell is like is associating a partner with a lot. Sure. disbelieving in the messengers call for being
ungrateful to Allah azza wa jal hassard. Having malicious envy towards my brother or sister
lying, treachery, Boolean oppression, wrongdoing, promiscuity, backbiting, backbiting.
Cutting off the ties of kinship, cowardice. miserliness withholding net which Allah has blessed me with forgiving it in the sake of Allah azza wa jal, inconsistency between what is in your heart and the face that you show to people.
feeling secure against the plans of Allah in your life. despairing of the mercy of Allah will take you to jahannam panicking blindly at the time of crisis,
and undoing things that are unbecoming of a believer,
pride and extravagance in the time when Allah has given you plenty.
transgressing the limits of Allah fearing a creative being more than you fear the creator
going against the Quran and Sunnah in word and an action.
obeying a creative being in disobedience to the Creator, supporting falsehood, with your tongue or with your hands, laughing or mocking at the signs of a law rejecting the truth when it comes to you. withholding knowledge or testimony when it should be given.
Or magic witchcraft, or the biller. How much of this oma is involved in this in
this obey disobeying your parents, killing someone unjustly consuming the wealth of orphans or labor, desertion from the battlefield, and slandering innocent, chaste women. He said, these are things that will lead you to hell.
When the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam was asked by Abu huraira
wrote the law and, and one thing I love about Abu huraira is he had the attitude of a believer when it came to doing good, what I mean is that he broke the law and a lot of times he wanted to find the easy way to please Allah. He wanted to find the easy way to please Allah. And this is the quality of a believer. We don't look for hardship. The believer does not look for a life of hardship.
How many of you here want to be you want to suffer in your life?
Anyone? No one wants to suffer. We asked a lot Robin Athena for dunya kasana
Ophelia, Hirata Casanova, another man norwesco for the good of this life. So Abba Herrera rhodiola and he asked the Prophet two questions.
He said number one, what will take me to the fastest? What is the quickest path to go to Paradise? I want to take that road. The Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam said taqwa has no holdup. have fear of Allah in good manners. Simply simply, have you ever learned good manners? He said, Okay, what will take me to jahannam the fastest.
The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said what will take you the jahannam the fastest, the quickest
What lies between the two lips, and what lies between the two links, these will take you to jahannam the quickest
for those who go to jahannam
this is something that is not
for a period of time except for those who have actual belief in Allah, maybe they will be punished for a period of time, whatever Allah wishes, but for those who Allah has destined, the your place of punishment forever, is jahannam. When for those people, they should know that that punishment never comes to an end. That punishment never comes to an end. It has no end, and it is never licensed for the person. There's never a day where you get some relief. Okay, today will make your fire a little bit less hot, will make your drink of boiling water a little bit cooler. We'll make your eating of the thorny branches. We'll make them a little bit less thorny today. It is never license. And we
know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when all the people are going to go the agenda, goats agenda, and when all the people who are going to be ignored are ignored,
that Allah azza wa jal will call between them
and horn drum.
And he will ask the people of gender Do you know what this is? They'll say yes, we know this. This is death. The people of Johanna movie as Do you know what this is? They will say yes, we know this is death. And there are a lot as vagenda would order that ram to be slaughtered. And then a call will come that depth is no more
people agenda, there is no more death for you. Endless enjoyment. And people of Jenna, there is no more death for you. punishment is endless. And their sorrow on that day. The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam said the people of jahannam, their solver will be so much
that the tears will flow until it cuts grooves in their faces. And he said the grooves in their faces from their tears will be so deep that if you put a boat or a ship inside of it, it would float.
This is the despair that waits for the people of jahannam. And that despair has no end.
That despair is so much that when the angels asked or when the people of jahannam asked the angels, the guardians, please just help us. Just help us a little bit. The person will say to the angels say to them, did not a messenger come to you? And they will say yes. Then the angel will tell them then you are where you deserve to the end when the people will ask a lot. Yeah, Oh Allah, please help us. just just just destroy us. Kill us do something.
A law will say you had your chance. Do not speak to me anymore.
Or law will tell them do not speak to me anymore. And he will cut off their voices from being heard by anybody.
And the angels will be reminding them every day.
Scream as much as you like, nobody can hear you. No one will ever hear you. Cry as much as you want. No one will see your tears
suffer as much as you'd like. It's never going to get any easier than this.
how many people?
How many people and this is what I want to end with? Realistically? How many people do you know that this is waiting for them? I want everyone in here to raise their hand if you know one person that if they die right now, this is waiting for them.
Raise your hand if you know one person if they die right now, this is waiting for them. And if all of you don't raise your hand, you're only fooling yourself because every single one of you know someone who just believes in Allah. Every single one of you know someone who rejects a lot or rejects the messengers of Allah or who is committing shirk or is committing loom.
All of you know someone that if they died today, this is waiting for them.
But I want you to ask yourself, how many of you have you ever worn that person? How many of you have ever taken one second of your day to tell that person? This is what is waiting for you if you die right now, and I cannot
Even, I can't even sugarcoat that for you. If you die today, yes, this is waiting for you, there is no difference of opinion or Athena about this. If you don't believe in a law, this is where you're gonna go. If you dis obey Allah, this is what waits for you. If you reject what I am telling you right now, I guarantee you
from the mouth of the messenger of the loss of the law, and he was sending them, and from a laws word himself, this is waiting for you. How many of you have done that?
How many of you've taken one moment to tell your neighbor, this is what is waiting for them? How many of you have taken one moment to tell your coworker, this is what is waiting for them? Maybe your family, your relative? Have you even tried to tell them? If you reject this, I hate to tell you that this is what is going to come to you. And I don't want to see this for you. The Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam.
He was someone who was really concerned about this. He was really concerned that he did not want anyone to end like this. He said the law when he was sending him,
said, I'm like someone who is standing on the edge of the fire, standing on the edge of the fire, trying to warn you not to go into it, holding you by the back of your government telling you No, don't go there.
He said, But unfortunately, too many of you are adamant about jumping into it.
The profits of the law and he was setting them was one sitting with his companions around the fire.
And there was a child, there was a child who was playing around that fire. And when the fire would flare up a little bit, the mother would grab the child and pull it back.
Because this is the love that the mother has for the child.
In the profits of Mamma mia was selling maganda cry. And when the companions asked him, Why are you crying? He says, Do you not see how much this mother loves her child?
They said yes, he said know that a lot as was their lives loves every single one of his creation. More than that this mother loves her child but so many of them are just adamant about diving into this fire.
Allah as Virgil has sent His messengers, succeeding one after another beginning with no Alayhi Salaam, ending with Mohammed Salah law and he was selling them. And when the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam was sent.
He was sent as herb and Avi, the Seal of all prophets and messengers. That means there is no more going to come. He said, I am the end of this line of messenger ship.
But there is something very prestigious and pristine, about the last and final messenger of Allah as virgin in there's something very beautiful about that fact. And I want to remind all of you about this.
When the prophets of the law it was settled him when he gathered all of the Muslims together.
And during his farewell pilgrimage during his last Hajj, he had approximately 140,000 of his companions in front of him. And he delivered the most famous speech, and it is actually the one of the most authentic narration we have from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He gave this honor the farewell sermon.
And at the end of this
sermon, he said something so beautiful. And I'm reminding you for this fact. He said to everyone gathered in front of him, those who are with me today,
conveyed this message conveyed this message to those that are not here.
For verily it may be that the one who has conveyed the message to may understand it better than the one who was conveying the message.
I don't think we as Muslims realize what happened on that day.
On that day, the prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam took something and gave it to this ummah. for 23 years of his life, he held the torch, and that torches the torch of Naboo, the prophethood and messenger ship, and that torch had never been trusted to anyone, except the prophets and messengers chosen by Allah jabril alayhi Salaam handed it from messenger to messenger to messenger.
But with the coming of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
There is no more messengers to pass that torch to, but that torch of conveying la isla high Lama to the world
had to go somewhere.
It had to be somewhere to the Day of Judgment. So on that day the prophets of the law Hardy was setting them. He took that torch and he handed it to this.
He took that torch and gave it to this ummah,
convey conveyed the message to those that are not here. We iterating what Allah had already revealed, although Elizabeth Rebecca Bill hekima And on that day, we were given the greatest that have ever been given to any other ummah. I've been given the greatest honor
that had ever been given to any honor was given to us on that day.
And when the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam made that statement conveyed the message, he raised his fingers to the heavens, and he said, Oh, a lot bear witness, or a lot bear witness or love bear witness. I have indeed conveyed your message to them.
And Allah subhanahu Wata, Allah azza wa jal shows this day, this moment in time, to say something that he had never said.
Earlier McMath to law calm Dino calm, this day, I have completed my religion for you. This day. Upon this statement, I completed my religion for you
and have perfected my favor upon you. And I've chosen for you Islam as your dean, do we comprehend that sometimes?
That it became our job on that day, to convey this message to humanity. It became our job on that day to prevent people from going to jahannam if we don't feel that we have a responsibility to human beings, to prevent them from going to jahannam will lie we are not following the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, because the son of the prophets of the Lord he was setting them does not consist of just pulling your pants up high. It doesn't just consist of letting the linea grow. It isn't consistent just brushing your teeth of the tooth sticker miswak it isn't consistent, just sleeping on your right side
will lay the greatest of the son of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam was as a law said with the iron Illa law he isn't he was said Adam Munira was that he was a color to Allah, Allah permission and a lamp giving beautiful light that he was Rahmatullah. I mean, a mercy to humanity, because he cared about human beings. He cared about their souls, he cared about whether they went to gender or not, do we care anymore? Or are we too concerned with our own ideological idea of I want to please me, I want to make me happy. I want to protect my little bubble. I don't care what they do. Let them do it. They ignorant in the way they deserve. Whatever they get,
will lie. They deserve gender just as much as you deserve it. They just don't know it yet.
When someone asked us about Islam, do we? Do our tongues get tied? Or do we open up and tell them that yes, Islam is the truth. It is the only way of life ever revealed for humanity. If you follow it, you will receive goodness in this life, goodness in the next if you disobey it. If you disbelieve in it, you will face hardship in this life. And in the next, do we have that? Is it inside of ourselves anymore? Do we care about our neighbor's soul? Do we care about our co workers soul? Do we remind them of jahannam and first and foremost, do we remind ourselves that this is waiting not only for the disbelievers but it is waiting for anyone who lives a life in disobedience
to Allah as will no matter what comes out of their mouth. We ask Allah to protect us from this ending in sha Allah to Allah. And we ask Allah azza wa jal to give us the ability to have the Isaiah with inside of ourselves to convey this message clearly to humanity in a way that is befitting and deserving of the message.
