Allah (swt) is saying: :Success, Whoever can save Himself, from the eternal punishment, punishment that will not come to an end, but will increase by the second, pain beyond the comprehension of the human mind, whoever can save Himself from that jahannam, and He is admitted under into gardens under which rivers flow, He is the one that has Succeeded.
My young friend Do not be deceived by that BMW that you may drive, Do not be deceived by that Ferrari or that big Range Rover that you may have, do not be deceived by the Bunglaows that you may live in , tall lofty buildings, beautiful houses, the beautiful and fashionable latest clothes that you may wear, do not be deceived by this Dunya (world), Why?
“This world is Deceiving” because everything within this world will come to an end and this world will also come to an end sooner or later.: “There is only One thing to remain, and that is none other than The Lord of the Arsh and Kursi, The Creator of the World, Other than this every single thing will perish. Say O’ Muhammad (saw), tell these people, You know this death that you are running away from, You and I are this moment in time are running away from death, we really don’t believe it. We Might not say it with our mouth that we don’t believe in death, we may acknowledge it because we’ve seen people going before us, so we may say we believe but our actions are proof that we don’t believe, You see the masajid full on Friday, you see tha masajid full today, you see the masajid full on the day of Eid, but the rest of the year my young friend, tomorrow come Fajr prayer you see one or two safs (rows) inside the masjid, and the same goes around for every other masajid in every country.
When it’s time for prayer we become deaf and blind to the teachings of Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw), When it’s time for Zakat we become deaf and blind to the teachings of Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw), When it’s time for Hajj we become deaf and blind to the teachings of Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw), Our Amaal are saying that we don’t believe in death we’re running away from death.
Allah (swt) says: “You tell them O’ Muhammad (saw), you can run wherever you like, you can go in the depths of the Atlantic in the total darkness, my friend you can climb the peak of the mount Everest, my friend you can hide in the darkness of the Amazon or The Kalahari Bush, When your time comes to an end wherever you are, Then say The Pentagon & For Knox are places where no one can penetrate and get through, you can go and hide there, when your times comes to an end all of a sudden the barrier will be removed from your eyes, you’re in the dunya but now you can see the Akhirah (Hereafter), and you will see that Angel standing before you, Wherever you are in any corner of the globe, you cannot escape, You can be Bill Gates and you can possess billions and billions of Dollars, You can take the virgin spaceship and go to space, you can try what you like, when your time comes to an end, Believe or Not believe you will that Angel standing before you and He will get you.
Then, every one of us will return to The Knower of the seen and The Unseen, every one of us will return to The Absolute Master, At this moment in time, you may do wrong, you want to do wrong? You can do wrong you mother and father won’t find out. You probably go to every satanic place (night clubs etc.) making sure none of your mother and father or anyone of your relatives have a clue to what you do, But you know what? Despite of committing such sins secretly He The Most High is watching every single thing that you do and you can never escape from Him, you can never hide yourself from Allah (swt). He is aware of every word that your tongue utters, And He will inform you of every single thing that you’ve done in this world. He will inform you of every single thing, the Angels recording you deeds, you can’t hide and you will not get away, The Angels recording your deeds they will inform Him of what you did, and you want to try denying? Then my friend the very Earth which you wronged Him! The Earth on which you stole, the earth on which you fornicated, The earth on which you lied, the earth on which you went to the night clubs, the earth will begin to say. “O Allah Abdullah (Your servant) was here on the 29th of December at 10:30, O Allah I saw Him he was here” And if you still try to deny! Then you know these sacred body parts of yours they belong to you, these hands belong to you, this tongue belongs to you, these legs belong to you, but on that day my friend you will realize that you don’t even have control over your own tongue, your own hands, you own feet, My friend even they will not be loyal to you , on that day when you stand before The Lord of The Arsh and Kursi, Your saying to Allah (swt), “O Allah (swt), No I did not do this wrong, O Allah (swt) no, I didn’t commit this sin” “You know your hands they will being to speak and say: “O Allah (swt), no he is lying he committed this sin”, your feet will begin to speak and your feet will begin to say: “No Allah (swt) He did commit this sin!”. Your trying to say something with your tongue, but you will find that you have no control over your own tongue, And your tongue will bear witness against you and say: “O Allah (swt), indeed Abdullah committed this sin and I am a witness to this”.
Disrespecting Mother and Father, today all mothers and fathers are crying, that they don’t even have control of children as young as 5. As young as 5 they will turn around and look up at their mothers and fathers and say, “Who are you to tell me to do this? Who are you?” they will answer back, the hadith which Hafiz Al-Mindhir has related in Targhib wa tarhib comes to mind, He says: “I went to a tribe, and there was tomb near this tribe, and after Asr prayer this grave opened and a man came out of this grave, his head was that of a donkey and his body was that of a human being, he came out of the grave, he Hee Hawed three times like a donkey, three times he Hee Hawed like a Donkey and after this he went back inside the grave, and the grave closed”.
He says, I asked the locals with regards to this individual as to who he was and why Allah (swt) was punishimg him in this manner, so he says the locals informed me that this young individual, he would take alcohol, he would drink, he had a habit of drinking, an d when he would drink too much and he would return home to his mother, just as our mothers do, you know when we are out, having a good night out, haven’t told our mothers, our mothers are sleepless their not even sleeping, their waiting for us inside of our homes, fearing with regards to our wellbeing are we ok?, where are we?, they wait and wait. His mother would do the same, when he would return and she would see him intoxicated, to save him from the Jahannam and from the fire of hel and the punishment of the Akhirah (hereafter), she would give her son Naseeha (advice), and she would say to her son, “O My song fear Allah (swt), stay away from this thing, this is the mother of all evils, O My son this is a filthy thing, it’s from the works of the Satan (Iblees), O My Son if you want success, if you want to go to paradise then don’t even go near this, O My son do you not realize the Satan through this, The satan through this wants to stop you from the Zhikr (remembrance) of Allah (swt), and wants to stop you from prayer”. When she would give her son Naseeha (advice) in this manner, he would turn around to his mother and say, “O Mother stop Hee hawing like a donkey” (Astaghfrirullah). He would say to his mother: “Stop Hee Hawing like a Donkey”.
You know what? The exact same thing happens today! This particular individual used these words, we use words which are right in this day and age, which are no different to the words that he used, what do youngsters turn around and say to their mother and father, when their mother and father are saving them from Jagannam and the fire of hell they give them Naseeha, what do the sons turn around to their mother and father say?: “O Mother get off my back, your always breathing down upon me, You don’t give me a chance to breath, your always coming on top of me, give me a chance to breathe, give me my own space, give me my freedom , stay out of my life” This is what the youngsters utter today. My friends there is no difference between this and what that individual uttered at that time, those words were right at that time, these words are right at this time, always remember, after Asr prayer that individual died, and after Asr prayer Allah (swt) punished him in such a manner, that his head is turned into a donkey, He is the one that comes out of the grave and Hee Haws like a donkey.
Note: This hadith was related in front of masters of Hadith, not one single master rejected or questioned it.
This is why I say my young friends if you want to believe, then you believe, But if you don’t want to believe, if you don’t want to believe in Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw), if you don’t want to believe in the hereafter than my friends the choice is yours don’t believe.
Allah (swt) says: “Nobody will be forced to declare the Kalima ‘La ilaha iLAllah’, Nobody will be forced to embrace Islam and accept the Kalima ‘La ilaha iLAllah’”
You want to believe you believe, you don’t want to believe you don’t believe, you want to reject Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw)? Then my friend you reject Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw), you want to give preference to this world over the hereafter and you want to enjoy this life, the 50 years that you might get, the 60 years that you might get, and if you’re lucky you get a 100 years, you want to enjoy this and you want to give this preference to the eternal bliss in Paradise? Then my friend its your choice you do this, you wanna live a life wining and dining, you wanna live a life pubbing and clubbing, you wanna live a life chilling and thrilling? Then my friend you do this, but let me tell you the last laugh will be none other than The Lord of The Arsh and Kursi. Because,
Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: “You do as you please but remember, you will die just like you lived, you will die just like you lived and you will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment just like you died”. You will die just like you lived, if you’ve lived wining and dining, chilling and thrilling and giving preference to the world over the hereafter, and then you think in your little minds that on the point of death you will utter the Kalima, ‘La ilaha iLaAllah Muhammadur Rasoolullah’, or you will die reciting Zhikr or spending salutations on Muhammad (saw), or you will die on a state of prostration, then people like you and me are living in a Cuckoo’s Land, Yes We’re living in Cuckoo Land! If we believe that we reject Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw), then we will never die by reciting tha Kalima, Just as it is hope that one who pleases Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw) and suppresses his desires, and gives preference to the hereafter over this world, Allah (swt) will honour him at the time of death, It’s so possible that Allah (swt) takes out his soul, when his in the state of prostration, when his bowing down before The Lord of The Arsh and Kursi, in prayer Allah (swt) takes out his soul, when His woken up during the nights and his hands are raised before His Master, and his begging for Allah (swt’s) mercy, O my friends Allah (swt) takes his soul, while he is sitting in the Masjid of Prophet Muhammad (saw), before roza-e-mubarik of Prophet Muhammad (saw), or His in His Masjid Al-Haram (Khanna-e-Kaa’bah) in the state of Ihram making tawaaf around the house of Allah (swt).
Just as it is hope that Allah (swt) will honour that individual who gives preference to the hereafter over the world, it is feared one who gives preference to the world over the hereafter and rejects the teachings of Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw), and neglects His obligation to Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw), My friends it is feared that Allah (swt) will disgrace himat the time of death, Allah (swt) will disgrace him at the time of death!, and if Allah (swt) disgrace’s him at the time of death, then you tell me what you think Allah (swt) has installed for him? Thereafter in the grave? Day of Judgment? And Jahannam?
