jahannum

Allah said about the Disbeliever:
“…Never would the capacity of the earth in gold be accepted from one of them if he would [seek to] ransom himself with it.…”
(Surah Al Imraan 91)

The Prophet Muhammad S.A.W said about the Believer:
“Save yourself from Hell-fire even by giving half a date-fruit in charity.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

Lesson:
All the money in the world will not save a DISBELIEVER from the fire, yet HALF A DATE in charity can save a BELIEVER from the fire.

I can guarantee you that you won’t be able to go sleep properly if you watch this reminder about Jahannum by Sheikh Omar El Banna. If you watch it with a open heart and if you are sincere then you will think twice before disobeying Allah. The Non-Muslims who watch this, no doubt fear will strike into their hearts so those with a brain please use common sense and accept the truth before your time is up. May Allah save us all from Jahannum, ameen.

You know what’s one of the best realizations I’ve ever had?

You know Narnia, Hogwarts, Neverland, Mordor, the Shire, Gallifrey, Westeros, etc? Those are all places conjured by the human mind. People who are fans of the stories these places come from yearn to experience them.
Allah has created Jannah, a place that is literally SO AMAZING it cannot be grasped by our minds. So basically it’s literally trillions of times better than these fantasy locations.

Jannah isn’t a fantasy location.

There’s your motivation for the day.

When Words Count

The Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “All of a human being’s words count against him and not for him, except commanding the right, forbidding the wrong, and the mention of Allah Most High.” [Tirmidhi]

The importance of keeping guard over what our tongue utters is so important that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said that he would guarantee Paradise to whoever could control his tongue and private parts from sin. The misuse of these is a common cause of being led to Jahannum. When Hazrat Abu Bakr (radi Allahu anhu) heard this, he put a large stone in his mouth to prevent himself from speaking without thinking. He would take the stone out if he had to speak, but then put it in again. How far we are from the example of the Sahabah…

We should adopt silence as our modus operandi, but silence when speaking is required is not commendable. Our words count in our favour, and should be uttered, when we command the right, forbid the wrong or are engaged in the remembrance of Allah Most High. Abul Qasim Qushayri said, “Safety lies in remaining silent, which should be one’s basis. Silence at the appropriate time is the mark of men, just as speech at the appropriate time is one of the finest qualities. I have heard Abu Ali Daqqaq say, ‘He who is silent when something should be said is a tongueless villain.’” [r 1.1: Reliance of the Traveller by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri]

“All that is required for the triumph of evil is for good men to remain silent.”
