PEOPLE differ w/ their creed (religion / belief)
-there will be right ones, going to Paradise, and wrong ones,
-that send you to Hellfire

Has there come to you the narration of the overwhelming (i.e. the Day of Resurrection); (Al-Ghashiyah 88:1)

On the Day of Reckoning, we will give account for how we spent our time,
-our money, our belief

Verily, the Day of Decision is a fixed time, (An-Naba 78:17)


-Judgment Day is a reality, not a fantasy
-we'll be called by our names on this day

When the Event (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) befalls. (Al-Waqi'ah 56:1)

Narrated by Abud Darda': The Prophet (pbuh) said: On the Day of Resurrection you will be called by your names and by your father's names, so give yourselves good names. [Abu Dawud, Book 36, Hadith #4930]


Terms of "god" and "goddess" do not exist because there is one God
-in Islam, we take names w/ proper names
-because we'll be called by these names
-a child's 1st right over us is to be legitimate

(And remember) the Day when He will gather you (all) on the Day of Gathering, that will be the Day of mutual loss and gain (i.e. loss for the disbelievers as they will enter the Hell-fire and gain for the believers as they will enter Paradise).(At-Taghabun 64:9)

QUESTION: WHAT DAY OF THE WEEK IS JUDGMENT DAY?

ANSWER:
Judgment Day will be on a Friday,
-as stated in Hadith the sayings of Muhammad [peace be upon him]
1. Earth was created on a Friday
2. Adam was put in the Garden on a Friday

Abu Haraira reported that Allah's Messenger (SAW) took hold of my hands and said: Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, created the clay on Saturday and He created the mountains on Sunday and He created the trees on Monday and He created the things entailing labour on Tuesday and created light on Wednesday and lie caused the animals to spread on Thursday and created Adam (AS) after 'Asr on Friday; the last creation at the last hour of the hours of Friday, i. e. between afternoon and night. [Sahih Muslim #6707]

The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection). (Al-Fatihah 1:4)


But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. (Matthew 24:36) King James Version

QUESTION: TELL US ABOUT THE TRUMPET THAT WILL BE BLOWN:

ANSWER:
THE angel will blow 3 times
1 - a man preparing water for his animals will hear this
2 - the next time, it will be complete death for all
3 - the last time, it blows to raise us from the dead
4 – God is the only one who knows when this day will be

'Abdullah b. 'Amr reported that a person came to him and said: What is this hadith that you narrate that the Last Hour would come at such and such time? Thereupon he said: Hallowed be Allah, there is no god but Allah (or the words to the same effect). I have decided that I would not narrate anything to anyone now. I had only said that you would see after some time an important event that the (sacred) House (Ka'ba) would be burnt and it would happen and definitely happen. He then reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The Dajjal would appear in my Ummah and he would stay (in the world) for forty-I cannot say whether he meant forty days, forty months or forty years. And Allah would then send Jesus son of Mary who would resemble 'Urwa b Mas'ud. He (Jesus Christ) would chase him and kill him. Then people would live for seven years that there would be no rancour between two persons. Then Allah would send cold wind from the side of Syria that none would survive upon the earth having a speck of good in him or faith in him but he would die, so much so that even if some amongst you were to enter the innermost part of the mountain, this wind would reach that place also and that would cause his heath. I heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Only the wicked people would survive and they would be as careless as birds with the characteristics of beasts. They would never appreciate the good nor condemn evil. Then the Satan would come to them in human form and would say: Don't you respond? And they would say: What do you order us? And he would command them to worship the idols but, in spite of this, they would have abundance of sustenance and lead comfortable lives. Then the trumpet would be blown and no one would hear that but he would bend his neck to one side and raise it from the other side and the first one to hear that trumpet would be the person who would be busy in setting right the tank meant for providing water to the camels. He would swoon and the other people would also swoon, then Allah would send or He would cause to send rain which would be like dew and there would grow out of it the bodies of the people. Then the second trumpet would be blown and they would stand up and begin to look (around). Then it would be said: O people, go to your Lord, and make them stand there. And they would be questioned. Then it would be said: Bring out a group (out of them) for the Hell-Fire. And then it would be asked: How much? It would be said: Nine hundred and ninety-nine out of one thousand for the Hell-Fire and that would be the day which would make the children old because of its terror and that would be the day about which it has been said: "On the day when the shank would be uncovered" (lxviii. 42). [Sahih Muslim, Book 41, Hadith #7023]

Whatsoever is on it (the earth) will perish. (Ar-Rahman 55:26)

And the Face of your Lord full of Majesty and Honour will abide forever. (Ar-Rahman 55:27)


See chapter 39:68 .... some people will not die
-the exceptions to the rule are the virgins of Paradise
-we will not be old in Paradise
-we will all be 33 years old

And the Trumpet will be blown, and all who are in the heavens and all who are on the earth will swoon away, except him whom Allah will. Then it will blown a second time and behold, they will be standing, looking on (waiting). (Az-Zumar 39:68)

Hasan Basri (RA) says that an old woman came to Rasoolullah (SAW) and made a request, O’ Messenger of Allah make Dua that Allah grants me entrance into Jannah. Rasoolullah (SAW) replied, O’ Mother, an old woman cannot enter Jannah. That woman started crying and began to leave. Rasoolullah (SAW) said, Say to the woman that one will not enter in a state of old age, but Allah will make all the women of Jannah young virgins. Allah Ta’aala says, Lo! We have created them a (new) creation and made them virgins, lovers, equal in age. (Surah Waaqi’ah, 35-37). [Shamaa-il Tirmidhi, Ch35, Hadith #230]

QUESTION: DOES THE AGE 33 HAVE TO DO W/ JESUS?

ANSWER:
His mission was 3 years, 3 months and 3 days and he became a prophet at age 30
-all other prophets became prophets at age 40
-Jesus is coming back and you must believe this or you're an unbeliever

In Paradise:
1 no toilets
2 no jealousy
3 no waste
4 no hunger
5 no pain in childbirth
6 no diseases of the heart will not be there
7 no aging or wrinkles or white hair
8 there is milk, honey and wine in Paradise

And he ['Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)] shall be a known sign for (the coming of) the Hour (Day of Resurrection) [i.e. 'Iesa's (Jesus) descent on the earth][] . Therefore have no doubt concerning it (i.e. the Day of Resurrection).(Az-Zukhruf 43:61)


Those who drink wine in THIS world will not drink it in Paradise
-that wine doesn't make us intoxicated
-those who drink it on earth, will not drink it there

rivers of wine delicious to those who drink;(Muhammad 47:15)

QUESTION: TELL US ABOUT THE CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS JOINING TO KILL THE ANTI-CHRIST

ANSWER:
YES, there were many times in history when the two joined together against a common enemy

-There were madmen that were removed by America's doing:
-Slobodan Milosevic
-the Soviet Union
-the stinger missiles that were sent by Ronald Reagan for Afghanistan
-to use against Soviet Union
-so we see America has done jihad, whether they call it that or not
-when their weapons arrived on the battlefield,
-the mujahideen got victory on a silver platter
-Ronald Reagan, US President, took revenge to shoot down
-Russian helicopters [in Afghanistan]
-he would say "TEAR DOWN THAT WALL" he shouted to the Russian President

SHAIKH FAISAL IS NOT ANTI-AMERICAN

QUESTION: PLEASE TELL US WHAT “HADES” IS - IS THIS HELL?

ANSWER:
The word "Hades" is not in Islam

QUESTION: SHOULD MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS DABBLE IN POLITICS?

ANSWER:
This is an excellent question ... when one political party starts a party then stop, the people suffer
-these 2 political parties in Jamaica are "garrison politics"
-the politicians are lazy
-these politicians know the people in the garrison
-vote ONE WAY so they don't fix the roads, the schools and such
-growing up in JA, in the 1970s, Shaikh's mum gave him money to buy groceries
-he had money for it, but there was no food on the shelves
-in the stores for him to buy
-so he has compared political parties from
-30 other countries to Jamaica
-in Jamaica, they do not let you wear clothing
-advertising the political party you support
-there is a new Prime Minister in Jamaica
-and he young and his hands are clean
-so he is not tainted
-going back to the HADES question ...
-this is the Greek word used in the Bible to describe Hell

QUESTION: WHO ARE THE MOST FAMOUS AND POWERFUL ANGELS?

ANSWER:

1 GABRIEL - he is responsible for natural disasters
-and he visited the prophets
-side note: there are places buried under the water / oceans
-these were dumped under the sea because of earthquakes and disasters
-the Qur'an was revealed to Muhammad by Gabriel
-but the Jews complain that Gabriel was an "informant"
-these people killed prophets and worshipped a cow
-we're coming up on the 6th of December [Ashura]
-and Muhammad (saws) saw the Jews fasting on this day
-they were celebrating the times of Musa
-but Muhammad said he had more right so he fasted
-on that day and we all [Muslims] fast on this day
-as a recommended fast
-the only time we fast as law is to fast in Ramadan
-[and if you lied, you must fast]

Narrated By Ibn 'Abbas: The Prophet came to Medina and saw the Jews fasting on the day of Ashura. He asked them about that. They replied, "This is a good day, the day on which Allah rescued Bani Israel from their enemy. So, Moses fasted this day." The Prophet said, "We have more claim over Moses than you." So, the Prophet fasted on that day and ordered (the Muslims) to fast (on that day). [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 3, pg.124, Hadith #222, Sahih Muslim Vol 2, English pg. 550, Hadith #2518, #2520]

NATURAL DISASTERS do not occur in Makkah and Madinah

-God protects these cities from disasters

By the fig, and the olive, (At-Tin 95:1)

By Mount Sinai, (At-Tin 95:2)

And by this city of security (Makkah), (At-Tin 95:3)


Prophet Abraham begged God to make Makkah and Madinah cities of safety and security

And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) said, "My Lord, make this city (Makkah) a place of security and provide its people with fruits, such of them as believe in Allah and the Last Day." He (Allah) answered: "As for him who disbelieves, I shall leave him in contentment for a while, then I shall compel him to the torment of the Fire, and worst indeed is that destination!" (Al-Baqarah 2:126)

-when a prophet supplicates [prays] to God, God answers

2. MICHAEL / MIKAEL - he supplies water for our crops
-the Jews thought he (Angel Gabriel) exposed their crimes against humanity
-even after God drowned the Pharaoh in front of their eyes, they still did not believe in God alone
-so they worshipped the golden calf then
-in the desert, the clouds protected them, as shade
-when they were hunger, manna and quail
-came down from heaven to feed them
-rocks were struck to bring them water
-but they said to Moses, you and your Lord GO AND FIGHT w/ your Lord

Miqdad ibn Amr said to the Holy Prophet: “ O Messenger of Allah command us with what Allah has ordained because you have our full support wholeheartedly. By Allah we will never say to you what Bani Israel said to Musa (i.e. you and your lord go and fight while we site and relax). But instead we say to you; you and your Lord go and fight and we shall be with you fighting for the cause of Allah. For by the one who has sent you with the truth if you march towards the highest mountains we shall march with you until we all reach it”. (Seerah an-Nabawiyya by Ibn Hisham Vol 1. Pg.614 & Musnad Ahmad Vol.1 pg.390)

-but Muhammad's Sahabahs said GO AND FIGHT and we will go with you

Jews are responsible for spreading ISLAMAPHOBIA,
-but Shaikh doesn't see this racism in Jamaica
-there are other cultures living there
-and they are not being persecuted by the majority of blacks in Jamaica
-even after ethnic cleansing, the blacks
-in Jamaica did not hunt down whoever killed their people
-but the Jews hunted down Hitler's followers all the way to South America
-you don't even need a VISA to go to Jamaica [you get it in the airport]
-white people are stingy w/ their freedoms [passports /visas]
-and airplanes in Jamaica have the best record of any airline;
-they have not crashed
-when Nelson Mandela saw 2 black pilots flying a plane he was in,
-he was a little shocked!
-ANGEL GABRIEL: his height fills the top of the earth
- his wings stretch out across the horizon

..Aishah (RA)...But of course, Muhammad (SAW) did see Jibril and he saw him in his real appearance only twice, once at the siraatal muntaha and the second time at Jiyad, he has six hundred wings that covered the horizon." [Tirmidhi 3289, Ahmed 26099, Bukhari 3234, Muslim 177]

Kiraman (honourable) Katibin writing down (your deeds), (Al-Infitar 82:11)

They know all that you do. (Al-Infitar 82:12)

3. ANGEL ISRAFEEL blows the trumpet 3 times
4. KIRAMAN KABITEEN – record of your deeds
5. MUNKAR AND NAKEER - will question us in the grave
6. RIDWAAN - he is the keeper of Paradise
8. ZABINIYA - 19 angels in a group (guardians and keepers of hell)

Over it are nineteen (angels as guardians and keepers of Hell). (Al-Muddaththir 74:30)

And We have set none but angels as guardians of the Fire, and We have fixed their number (19) only as a trial for the disbelievers,...(Al-Muddaththir 74:31)

QUESTION: HOW MANY ANGELS ARE THERE?

ANSWER:
There are 70,000 angels they go to a house in the heavens,
-such as the Ka'ba and they worship God there
-they seek forgiveness on our behalf [those of us who make tawaf around the Ka'ba

…Then I was shown Al-Bait-al-Ma'mur (i.e. Allah's House). I asked Gabriel about it and he said, This is Al Bait-ul-Ma'mur where 70,000 angels perform prayers daily and when they leave they never return to it (but always a fresh batch comes into it daily).'…. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 54, Hadith #429]

Sulaiman did not disbelieve, but the Shayatin (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the two angels, Harût and Marût, but neither of these two (angels) taught anyone (such things) till they had said, "We are only for trial, so disbelieve not (by learning this magic from us)."(Al-Baqarah 2:102)

Rasullullah (SAW) said: “The Ka’bah is surrounded by seventy thousand angels. They seek forgiveness and blessings for those who make tawaf.” (Ibn Majah)

By the Mount; (At-Tur 52:1)

And by the Book Inscribed. (At-Tur 52:2)

In parchment unrolled. (At-Tur 52:3)

And by the Bait-ul-Ma'mûr (the house over the heavens parable to the Ka'bah at Makkah, continuously visited by the angels); (At-Tur 52:4)


-only God knows how many angels there are
-angels have no genitalia [no private parts] so they are neither male or female
-pagan Arabs said the angels are the daughters of God but this is not true

And they make the angels who themselves are slaves to the Most Beneficent (Allah) females. Did they witness their creation? Their evidence will be recorded, and they will be questioned! (Az-Zukhruf 43:19)

Now ask them (O Muhammad SAW): "Are there (only) daughters for your Lord and sons for them?" (As-Saffat 37:149)

Or did We create the angels females while they were witnesses? (As-Saffat 37:150)
Verily, it is of their falsehood that they (Quraish pagans) say: (As-Saffat 37:151)


-God said He (swt) did not create angels and give them private parts
-he asked did you see me create their gender?
-we refer to Angel Gabriel as a HE but he has no gender

QUESTION: IS GOD A JEALOUS GOD?
ANSWER:
YES, Muslims and Muslims believe that God is a Jealous God
-one day Muhammad's Companions were sitting w/ him and one said,
-if I came home and saw a man sleeping w/ my wife, I'd chop off his head
-he said I have more jealous than that man and he said God is also jealous

AI-Mughira b. Shu'ba (RA) reported that Sa'd b. 'Ubada (RA) said: If I were to see a man with my wife, I would have struck him with the sword, and not with the flat part (side) of it. When Allah's Messenger (PBUH) heard of that, he said: Are you surprised at Sa'd's jealousy of his honour? By Allah, I am more jealous of my honour than he, and Allah is more jealous than I. Because of His jealousy Allah has prohibited abomination, both open and secret And no person is more jealous of his honour than Allah, and no persons, is more fond of accepting an excuse than Allah, on account of which He has sent messengers, announcers of glad tidings and warners; and no one is more fond of praise than Allah on account of which Allah has promised Paradise. [Sahih Muslim, Book 9, Hadith #3572]

Verily, Allah forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allah in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin. (An-Nisa 4:48)

QUESTION: PLEASE TELL US WHAT PSALMS 82:6 REFERS TO?

ANSWER: PSALMS 82:6


Psalms chapter 82 King James Version

1 A Psalm of Asaph. God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.

3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness:
all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? (John 10:34) King James Version


God, these verses, is spelled w/ a "small g"
-this is not referring to God, who is sitting on his Throne,
-above the heavens
-it talks about the leaders governing on the land
-how can you be GOD but you don't know anything
-this is talking about leaders on the earth

7But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. (Psalm 2:7) King James Version

-we're not to entertain the idea that God beget a son
-[that would mean He had s-x and that is blasphemy to believe this]
-"children of God" - means you are a righteous person,
-not literal "son" or "children"

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. (Matthew 5:9) King James Version

QUESTION: WHO WILL BE RESURRECTED?

ANSWER: angels, jinn,(demons) human beings, and animals

Only 2 will be accountable for their actions:
man and jinn
-animals and angels won't be standing in front of God answering how did you live your life?
-but man and jinn will be asked that question

ANGELS DO NOT DISOBEY THEIR LORD

angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do that which they are commanded. (At-Tahrim 66:6)

And (remember) when We said to the angels; "Prostrate to Adam." So they prostrated except Iblis (Satan). He was one of the jinns; he disobeyed the Command of his Lord. Will you then take him (Iblis) and his offspring as protectors and helpers rather than Me while they are enemies to you? What an
evil is the exchange for the Zalimûn (polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc). (Al-Kahf 18:50)


There is no such thing as 'fallen angels' because in Islam,
-we see they obey their Lord
-they are like robots; they can't disobey
-people w/ fancy titles on earth will wish they were animals,
-who will have no judgment

and the disbeliever will say: "Woe to me! Would that I were dust!" (An-Naba 78:40)

QUESTION: WHEN A PET DIES, WILL WE HAVE THEM AS PETS IN PARADISE?

ANSWER:
People get emotionally attached to their pets
-in Paradise, you get what you want
-so you will have a pet if you want one

QUESTION: DO YOU BELIEVE IN RE-INCARNATION?
ANSWER:
NO, we believe in the Day of Judgment

Re-incarnation comes from the Hindus
-the devil can take on the form of a dead uncle [for example]
-and would deceive you

QUESTION: WILL EVERYONE BE RESURRECTED?
ANSWER:
YES, all in the graves will come out on the Day of Judgment
-there is life after death
-if we're good, we go to Paradise
-Jesus and Hitler will NOT be treated the same in Paradise
-the way we live on earth, our common sense tells us
-that there is life after death
-Jesus and Joseph Stalin can NOT be treated the same way

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF SATAN?

ANSWER: He was created [everything was created but God]

And the jinn, We created aforetime from the smokeless flame of fire. (Al-Hijr 15:27)

Satan was created from smokeless fire

-the angels came to earth to punish jinns who were misbehaving
-they saw Lucifer [Satan] and thought he was beautiful
-so they brought him up to heaven
-but that's like a duck living among a hen: they do not become a hen
-so Lucifer did not become good like the angels
-[he was still a rebellious jinn]
-he refused to bow to Adam because he said he was made form fire,
-better than Adam [made from clay]
-when Adam's body was lying in state, he kicked it and spat on it
-and he said if you are better than me, I will never obey you
-if I am better than you, I will surely destroy you

(Iblīs) said: "Because You have sent me astray, surely I will sit in wait against them (human beings) on Your Straight Path. (Al-A'raf 7:16)
Then I will come to them from before them and behind them, from their right and from their left, and You will not find most of them as thankful ones (i.e. they will not be dutiful to You)." (Al-A'raf 7:17)


Adam was taught the names of everything under the heavens
-and Lucifer wasn't, so he was jealous

Verily, I will mislead them, and surely, I will arouse in them false desires; and certainly, I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allah." And whoever takes Shaitan (Satan) as a Wali (protector or helper) instead of Allah, has surely suffered a manifest loss. (An-Nisa 4:119)

-some have come to change the creation of God
-so they change their gender from male to female
-these are their perverted and corrupted desires
-they tamper w/ genes and change God's creation
-when a man has knowledge but does not fear God,
-he becomes a devil in the land
-same as if he had money or power, he becomes a devil in the land

QUESTION: HOW WILL MAN BE RESURRECTED?

ANSWER
: barefooted naked uncircumcised hungry blind


Narrated By Ibn Abbas: The Prophet said, "You will be gathered (on the Day of Judgment), bare-footed, naked and not circumcised." He then recited: 'As We began the first creation, We, shall repeat it: A Promise We have undertaken: Truly we shall do it.' (21.104) He added, "The first to be dressed on the Day of Resurrection, will be Abraham, and some of my companions will be taken towards the left side (i.e. to the (Hell) Fire), and I will say: 'My companions! My companions!' It will be said: 'They renegade from Islam after you left them.' Then I will say as the Pious slave of Allah (i.e. Jesus) said. 'And I was a witness Over them while I dwelt amongst them. When You took me up You were the Watcher over them, And You are a witness to all things. If You punish them. They are Your slaves And if You forgive them, Verily you, only You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise." (5.120-121) [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 55, Hadith #568]

Narrated By 'Aisha: Allah's Apostle said, "The people will be gathered barefooted, naked, and uncircumcised." I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Will the men and the women look at each other?" He said, "The situation will be too hard for them to pay attention to that." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 76, Hadith #534]

"But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur'an nor acts on its orders, etc.) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection." (Ta-Ha 20:124)

He will say: "O my Lord! Why have you raised me up blind, while I had sight (before)." (Ta-Ha 20:125)

(Allah) will say: "Like this, Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) came unto you, but you disregarded them (i.e. you left them, did not think deeply in them, and you turned away from them), and so this Day, you will be neglected (in the Hell-fire, away from Allah's Mercy)." (Ta-Ha 20:126)


-the way we treat God in this world, He treats us in the next life

QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE 5 STAGES OF JUDGMENT DAY
STAGE 1 - RESURRECTION

-we will be gathered in Jerusalem
-the sun on that day will be 1 mile away from us, so we will be sweating
-some will sweat till it reaches their ankles
-but there are 7 people who will under the shade on that day

Mtilaawiyah ibn Humaidah Al-Qushairee related that the Messenger of Allah 0, said, "They will be gathered here — and he A signaled with his hand toward Ash-Sham — walking, riding, and passing on their faces, and they will be displayed before Allah. And upon their mouths will be Al-Fidaam (a covering, which in this instance is meant to prevent them from speaking)." (Ahmad)

“…a just ruler; a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah, a man whose heart is attached to the mosques; two men who love each other for Allah's sake, meeting for that and parting upon that; a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position [for illegal intercourse], but be says 'I fear Allah', a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity; and a man who remembered Allah in private and so his eyes shed tears.' Narrated by Abu Hurairah & collected in Sahih al-Bukhari Vol.1, p.356, No.629 & Sahih Muslim Vol.2, p. 493, No.2248

1 a just ruler
2 youth
3 a man in which a pretty woman called him to bed but he refuses
4 man who gives to charity but hides that he gave it
5 a man who prays till he cries
6 a man whose heart is connected to the mosque
7 2 people who love each other for no other reason then they both love Allah 'tala

STAGE 2 - The Lake Fount belongs to Muhammad (pbuh)

-there's more drinking cups there than there are stars

Narrated Abu Hurayrah Verily Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) said: My Cistern has its dimensions wider than the distance between Aylah and Aden, and its water is whiter than ice and sweeter than the honey diluted with milk, and its cups are more numerous than the numbers of the stars. Verily I shall prevent the (faithless) people therefrom just as a man prevents the camels of the people from his fountain. They said: Messenger of Allah, will you recognise us on that day? He said: Yes, you will have distinctive marks which nobody among the peoples (except you) will have; you would come to me with blazing forehead and bright hands and feet on account of the traces of ablution. [Sahih Muslim]

Narrated By 'Aisha: Allah's Apostle said, "The people will be gathered barefooted, naked, and uncircumcised." I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Will the men and the women look at each other?" He said, "The situation will be too hard for them to pay attention to that." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 76, Hadith #534]


-but there will be such a terrible situation on that day,
-so the naked bodies who are resurrected will not be able to look at others
-the white man fools people into thinking Jesus is God,
-when he was only a prophet
-the white man tells other lies [Iraq's weapons of mass destruction]
-[man walking on the moon]
-if you worship Jesus as God, your destiny will be in the Hellfire forever

And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? (Matthew 19:16) King James Version

And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. (Matthew 19:17) King James Version


Narrated Ibn Al-Musaiyab: The companions of the Prophet said, "Some men from my companions will come to my Lake-Fount and they will be driven away from it, and I will say, 'O Lord, my companions!' It will be said, 'You have no knowledge of what they innovated after you left: they turned apostate as renegades (reverted from Islam). Bukhari Volume 8, Book 76, Number 586

STAGE 3- THE RECKONING

Abu Barzah al-Aslami radi Allahu anhu reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “The two feet of the servant will not cease (from standing before Allah) on the Day of Judgment until he is asked about four things: on his life and how he spent it; on his knowledge and what he did with it; on his wealth and where he earned it and how he spent it; and on his body and in what way he utilized it.” [Saheeh, reported by At-Tirmidhi]

Then, on that Day, you shall be asked about the delight[] (you indulged in, in this world)! (At-Takathur 102:8)

We will be asked how we earned our money / spent it?

-or what did we do w/ our knowledge? Did we use it to spread mischief on earth?

The Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) said: “The son of Adam will not pass away from Allah until he is asked about five things: how he lived his life, and how he utilized his youth, with what means did he earn his wealth, how did he spend his wealth, and what did he do with his knowledge.” [Good hadith reported by Imam At-Tirmithi]

-some people will be shown their sins and admit them

Narrated By 'Adi bin Hatim: The Prophet said, "There will be none among you but will be talked to by Allah on the Day of Resurrection, without there being an interpreter between him and Him (Allah). He will look and see nothing ahead of him, and then he will look (again for the second time) in front of him, and the (Hell) Fire will confront him. So, whoever among you can save himself from the Fire, should do so even with one half of a date (to give in charity)." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 76, Hadith #547]

-some will deny it and say the angels wrote that sin down wrong - that wasn't me

This Day, We shall seal up their mouths, and their hands will speak to Us, and their legs will bear witness to what they used to earn. (It is said that one's left thigh will be the first to bear the witness). [Tafsir At-Tabari, Vol. 22, Page 24] (Ya-Sin 36:65)

-those people will have their lips sealed and their body parts
-will testify against him
-your left leg testifies against you first
-[because when we go into a holy place, we use the right leg]
-so the left will used against us (if we don't admit our sins)

QUESTION: WHO IS Melchizedek?
ANSWER: He lived longer than any other man

-the Qur'an mentions Jesus and Mary but not Melchizedek
-because they are more important

QUESTION: WHEN THE KING OF ETHIOPIA HEARD ABOUT THE BIRTH OF JESUS, DID HE CRY?
ANSWER: Yes, he was a Christian, and so he cried

-we've given examples where Christians sided w/ Muslims to fight a common enemy
-in 1260, they united to fight the Tartars and they won
-they lost at the Battle of ain Jaloot
-Mongolia is in the dustbin so people don’t even remember
-what their capital city was called: Ulan Bator]

QUESTION: HOW CAN SOMEONE BECOME A MUSLIM

ANSWER: We're not surprised people are asking these excellent questions

1. You need to testify that there is nothing to be worshipped by God
2 and that Muhammad is his last Prophet
3 Go home and take a bath

-it takes 5-10 seconds to testify
-there is a double blessing for believing in Jesus as a prophet, too
-but Muhammad (pbuh) was the last prophet

YOU MUST SAY: "There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger."
YOU MUST BELIEVE IT
YOU MUST RECITE IT IN ARABIC
IT IS PREFERRED TO SAY IT 3x
IT MUST BE SAID IN FRONT OF WITNESSES
ARABIC:


Ashhadu Alla Ilaha IllAllah Wa Ashhadu Anna Muhammadar Rasoolullah

The Shahadah means...

“I bear witness there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, and I bear witness Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah”

We NEGATE all false gods & AFFIRM worship to the One True God. These are the 2 Pillars, negation & affirmation. If someone comes with just the first Pillar, they are an Atheist, because they negate everything. Yet if someone comes with just the second Pillar, they are a Polytheist, because they don't affirm worship to Allah alone! A Muslim negates all acts of worship to other than Allah, & affirms worship to Allah alone (Monotheism).

The 7 Conditions of Shahadah are...

Knowledge - negates Ignorance

Certainty - negates Doubt

Submission - negates Disobedience

Acceptance - negates Denial

Truthfulness - negates Hypocrisy

Love - negates Hate

Sincerity - negates Shirk


"Muhammed is the Messenger of Allah" has 4 Rules...

To believe in everything that he informed us of,

To obey him in everything he commanded us with,

To abstain from everything he prohibited us from &

To worship Allah only in the way he informed us of & taught us.

"In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. From Muhammad, the slave of Allâh and His Messenger to Hercules, king of the Byzantines. Blessed are those who follow true guidance. I invite you to embrace Islam so that you may live in security. If you come within the fold of Islam, Allâh will give you double reward, but in case you turn your back upon it, then the burden of the sins of all your people shall fall on your shoulders. "Say (O Muhammad [pbuh]): ‘O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but Allâh, and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allâh.’ Then, if they turn away, say: ‘Bear witness that we are Muslims.’ " [Al-Qur'an 3:64][Sahih Al-Bukhari 1/4,5]


And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. (Matthew 19:17) King James Version

QUESTIONS: TELL US WHAT IS BEING WEIGHED ON THE 4TH STAGE OF JUDGMENT DAY

ANSWER: If our evil deeds are more, we go to Hellfire

STAGE 4 – WEIGHING OF OUR DEEDS


We can lose our good deeds, such as con artists
-[borrowing money and never pay it back]

The Prophet (PBUH) said: “The one who gets married with the intention not to pay dowry to his wife is a fornicator. And the one who borrows money with the intention not to pay back is a thief.” (Ibn Hiban, 2/270)

“The one who borrows money with the intention to pay it back, Allah (SWT) will make a way for him to pay back what he owes. And the one who borrows money with the intention not to pay it back, Allah (SWT) will destroy him.” (Al-Bukhari, 2387)


-some people will accuse someone of being gay or a pedophile [as example]
-and the person is NOT
-on Judgment Day, you give him your good deeds
-if you punch someone, you give that person you good deeds

but an arm's length between him and it, and that which is written overtakes him and so he behaves like the people of the Hell-fire and thus he enters it; and one of you behaves like the people of Hell-fire [BUKHARI and MUSLIM]

-the same as a man who was not fair to his 2 wives, he will lose his good deeds

STAGE 5 – THE SIRAT [bridge]
-bridges in the next world will have fire under them
-70x hotter than what we use to cook at home
-martyrs pass over w/ the speed of lightening
-some do it in a twinkling of an eye, some will be crawling or walking

On the Day of Judgment there will be a bridge called Sirat, which will be built over Hell upon Allahu ta'ala's command. Everybody will be ordered to cross that bridge. That day, all prophets will entreat as, "Oh Allah! Give safety!" Those who are to go to Paradise will cross the bridge easily and reach Paradise. Some of them will pass with the speed of lightning, some with that of wind, and some others like a galloping horse. The Sirat Bridge will be thinner than a hair and sharper than a sword. [Tabarani]

-those crossing the sirat will be given light to cross
-and then the light is taken from them
-who are these people what have the light taken away?

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: Allah's Apostle said, "When the believers pass safely over (the bridge across) Hell, they will be stopped at a bridge in between Hell and Paradise where they will retaliate upon each other for the injustices done among them in the world, and when they get purified of all their sins, they will be admitted into Paradise. By Him in Whose Hands the life of Muhammad is everybody will recognize his dwelling in Paradise better than he recognizes his dwelling in this world [Bukhari Volume 8, Book 76, and Number 585]

-those who backslide w/ their faith [one day he believes this,
-another day he believes that]
-there are thorns on the bridge to poke us as we go by
-these backsliders were mentioned in Chapter 22:11

And among mankind is he who worships Allah as it were, upon the very edge (i.e. in doubt); if good befalls him, he is content therewith; but if a trial befalls him, he turns back on his face (i.e. reverts back to disbelief after embracing Islam). He loses both this world and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss. (Al-Hajj 22:11)

QUESTION: ARE WE EXPECTING ANY MORE PROPHETS?

ANSWER:
NO, there are no prophets after Muhammad (pbuh)?

There are people who pretend they are prophets
-[such as David Koresh, Waco Texas (US)]

DAVID KORESH
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Koresh

-such as those who say the world would be destroyed - such as May 21, 2011
-but Jesus said in the Bible, I don't know when the Judgment Day is

But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. (Matthew 24:36) King James Version

QUESTION: WHAT IS A GOOD MUSLIM BOOK FOR A NEW REVERT / CONVERT TO ISLAM?

ANSWERS: THE 7 CONDITIONS OF SHAHADAH

-he a person drops off a bridge, some will be in hellfire forever and some will be there forever
-Jesus and Muhammad will intercede for us
-[and others, our children who died before us - alhumdulillah]

Narrated By Abu Sa'id: The women requested the Prophet, "Please fix a day for us." So the Prophet preached to them and said, "A woman whose three children died would be screened from the Hell Fire by them," Hearing that, a woman asked, "If two died?" The Prophet replied, "Even two (would screen her from the (Hell) Fire. " And Abu Huraira added, "Those children should be below the age of puberty." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2, Book 23, Hadith #341]

Ibn Abass said that the Prophet said: "Verily the most painful punishment on the Day of Judgment are those who kill the prophets or people murdered by the prophet or kill one of his parents, and making statues and knowledgeable people who do not benefit from his knowledge." - (Reported by Baihaqi)

Narrated By Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Name yourselves with my name (use my name) but do not name yourselves with my Kunya name (i.e. Abu-l Qasim). And whoever sees me in a dream then surely he has seen me for Satan cannot impersonate me. And whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally), then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 3, Hadith #110]
