Ways to Paradise: Imam Siraj Wahhaj

*1 sister-use to think that she was sure she was going to Jannah until she heard in a lecture one day and said to herself “I am going to hell if I don’t get my act together”

*You don’t just go to Jannah because your Muslim

*Everyone should ask themselves “What are my chances that I’ll go to Jannah?”

*The companions were different from us in that they had a keen sense of Paradise-a desire to go there-Jannah was real to them

*Hell-fire=Every 1000 take-999 these are the people of the hell-fire (Sahih Bukhari) [Companions=Sad]

*Siraj Wahhaj’s favorite companion: 3ukasha ibn Muhsin

*Poor people will enter Jannah 500 years before rich people-rich people who don’t pay zakah-in that waiting period will be burnt, heated, will be branded.

*Some people have to be purified , we won’t get there without Allah’s mercy

*Hope/Fear=be Humble

*We all know of people who use to practice~The wife/husband not paying attention

*Aisha r.a said that the Prophet s.a.w. use to remember Allah in every circumstance-wives, prayer, waking, dressing, etc.

*The Prophet s.a.w told Abdullah Ibn Umar bil 3as-“Don’t be like this person, he use to wake up for qiyam and left it”

*We all say “I use to..” , “I use to…”

*Be Humble

*1.) Allah is merciful=He gives the gift of Jannah to who He pleases

2.) Be careful-Allah’s mercy-He turns people around

*To Siraj Wahhaj there is nothing more beloved to him then being a muslim

*Thankful-“I know where I was”, Some people are running towards the dunya

*Allah makes us dependent on others-Jama3-prayer-more reward- rights of the muslim are 5–returning of the salaam

*Don’t become muflis-bankrupt-Allah can take it away–The Prophet s.a.w.-zakah, etc. mountain of deeds-but because they back bitted or cursed others-they come out with nothing in Yawmul Qiyamah.

*The strong believer is more loved by Allah then the weak believer-but both are loved to Allah

*Siratil Mustaqeen-pray that Allah places us on this path

*Be humble-“All of my ummah will go to Jannah except those who refuse”

*Music “Whoever imitates the people becomes of them”

*Quran is a message & method-from one stage to another- for people

*Spirituality-best way-follow the Sunnah of the Prophet s.a.w.
