Glory is to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds, the most Beneficent and the most Merciful. He alone we worship and He alone we seek for help. Guide us to the right path, the path of those you have bestowed your blessings upon; not the path of those whom you have made to go astray. Ameen.
To those who believe in the oneness of Allaah; those who pronounce the “kalimatushahadah” both by tongue and by heart;
To those who observe their Solat as at when due; those who zakat do not by-pass on a yearly basis;
To those who fast in the month of Ramadhan; and to those who perform Hajj when they have the capabilities, just as instructed;
To those who strive to gain knowledge of the deen; to those who doesn’t spend out of the orphan’s wealth;
To those who do good to their neighbours, be him a Muslim or a kufar; to those who find every way to ease the affairs of their brethren.
The last prophet, khatimu-l-anbiyyah (solalLahu ‘alayhi wasalam) has brought glad tiding to us; he has said the reward for these persons is Al-jannah,
A garden wherein rivers flow. A garden wherein fruits are at everyone’s reach. A garden wherein are the purest of everything you can think of.
A garden wherein are females – females whom no man has ever touched. A garden filled with young males, Allaah says in the Glorious Quran (Quran 76 verse 19) “And round about them will serve boys of everlasting youth, when you see them you’ll think of them as scattered pearls”
In Quran 58 verse 22, Allaah also says, “Those who believe are the party of Allaah, and verily, the party of Allaah are the “Muflihoon” (the successful)”
They are those who neither transgress nor oppress, they are the ones who do not exceed Allaah’s limits;
They are those who encourage that which is good and forbids such of which is bad
What else is befitting a servant of Allaah than being among the successful on the day of account (yaomul–hisab)?
To the first part of those who disbelieve in Allaah and His messengers, they are: those who, to them, the daily solawaat is like an exercise;
Those who harm their neighbours; those who do not care about charity;
Those who associate partners with Allaah (subhanahuwata’ala); those who bethink Allaah begot a son;
Those who die in a religion other than Islam; those who prioritize other religions over Islam in their lifetime.
The prophet (solalLahu ‘alayhi wasallam) has brought to them tidings of their eternal abode, wherein they will abide forever, as Allaah says in Quran 98 verse 6 “And verily, those who disbelieve in Islam, Quran and the prophet (solalLahu ‘alayhi wasallam) from the people of the scriptures (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans idolaters) will abide in the fire of hell. They are the worst of creatures”
They are those who exceed Allah’s limits, but do all in their power to preserve the earthly rules; those who fear their creator less, but answer cowardly to their rulers.
What does it profit a slave of Allaah to disbelieve and be a part of those astray?
To the other part of those who disbelieve in Allaah in secrecy, and proclaim their belief openly, just to be seen as a believer.
They are those whose act of worship is nothing but mere show off; those who in their various homes do not preach solat; those who don’t watch their time of solat.
Allaah says in Quran 107 verses 4-6“so woe unto the performers of solat (hypocrites), those who delay their solat and those who do good deeds only to be seen”
They are those who drive their cars within the speed limit stated by those in authority, for fear of fine, or being arrested, but speed past Allaah’s limits with sheer joy;
Those who do quite the opposite of what Allaah (their Creator) commands, such of which is best for them, but they know not, but find joy in serving or obeying such person whom Allaah created,
Such of them are ardent disbelievers, disbelievers whose acts of worship would not be accepted
Allaah reminds us in Quran 2 Verse 8, “And of mankind are those who say ‘we believe in Allaah and the last day’ while in fact they believe not”
Verse 9 further says, “They (think to) deceive Allaah and those who believe while they only deceive themselves, but they perceive not”
In Verse 14, He says, “And when they meet those who believe, they say ‘we believe’ but when they return to their shayateen (devils and polytheists) they say ‘Truly, we are with you. Verily, we were only mocking’”
They are those who Allah refers to as hypocrites; those who Allaah increases in their wrongdoings and leaves them to wander blindly.
They are those who have traded the hereafter for the worldly enjoyment, such of which Allaah mentions in Quran 58 verse 14 “they are neither of the Muslims nor of the Jews”
Those whom Allaah refers to in Quran 58 verse 19 as “a party of shaytan, and verily they will be the losers on the day of resurrection”
What does it profit a slave of Allaah to be among the losers on the day of Account?
