Hajjah Amina ق paints a vivid picture of the Day of Judgment; who will be granted paradise without questioning, who will be questioned and forgiven, and who will not find forgiveness.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
Allahumma Salli ala Muhammadin wa ala ‘aly Muhammadin wa Sallim
Sayyidah Hajjah Amina Adil ق , sohbat from 1989
He (Subhanahu wa ta’ala) says “For the Name of My Own Greatness, I don’t leave you without giving you a calamity, either by khawfi/fear, or by Ju`i/hunger, ‘Wa Nafsin’, or by your egos- loss of children, loss of wealth, loss of fruits. I make you lack something, not leave without this”(2:155) And for this, He (Subhanahu wa ta’ala) said “Wa Bashshiri As-Sabirina”, give glad tidings to those, O My beloved, who are patient. What is the reward of their patience? The reward for that patience is paradise.
Patience is a thing that it is bitter, hard to tolerate but in return for this patience, the Lord of Heavens grants paradise. If the Lord gives a servant a calamity, gives on him something hard, for every breath he takes, for every breath he takes, He (swt) forgives 100 of his sins, writes 100 thawab & grants 100 levels in paradise. For every breath he takes..There are 24 thousand breaths in one day & night. Yes, that is if he is patient. With this patience Allah (awj).. “‘Innama Yuwaffa As-Sabiruna ‘Ajrahum Bighayri Hisabin” (37:10) The Lord of Heavens grants the rewards of patient ones without reckoning. If man, jinn & the angels in the Heavens were to write it, they can’t finish writing this thawab. The Lord of Heavens says “O angels, put aside your pens. I am the One writing his thawab, ‘Ajrahum Bighayri Hisabin- their rewards, without reckoning, writes the Lord of Heavens. Meaning, if a person pricks his finger on a thorn even when he is patient with that thorn, Allah (awj) writes it as patience & gives it’s reward. The more heavy that thing is He gives accordingly. For example if He took the son or husband of a person, when that person comes in the field of Mahshar, Allah (awj) says “I am shy to put that person’s book on the scale, write her sins as thawabs. Your sins are forgiven. Go, with whom you lost in dunya, straight to paradise. I send her to paradise without reckoning. I am shy to open her book & say to her, “this was your sin & this is the punishment for it..”says the Lord of Heavens. I grant her in this way.
In dunya man faces all kind of things- he gets sick, he loses a relative, he loses wealth.. There are all kind of things. All these things, troubles are for man. And when one of these troubles comes, the Lord of Heavens gives its reward. He gives its reward in akhirah. They bring a person in the Day of Judgement and his whole life is spent in troubles, sufferings, etc.. The Lord of Heavens puts this servant in paradise for a moment with His Divine Hand of Power & says “O My servant, how were you in dunya?” “O Lord, there was no one happier than me in dunya!” He forgets all his previous troubles with this one dive into paradise. The Lord of Heavens says “If you were then you belong to paradise evermore” So He forgives him like this & puts him into paradise. And they bring another servant that he lived in palaces, he lived in all kind of pleasures. He also leaves dunya, there is no one who stays forever. And He (swt) puts him in hell for a moment with His Divine Hand of Power & asks him “O My servant, how did you live in dunya?” “O Lord, there was no one who was more unfortunate, who lived in more troubles than me”. So just like this, neither this nor that remains. Yes, therefore Allah (awj)… for those who are patient.
An announcer calls in the field of Mahshar “Where are those that they were on the way of Allah, who were fulfilling Allah’s orders. May they arise today”. Those people are selected & collected one by one from the lines of Mahshar field. He (swt) says “Go on, O My servants..” Buraqs come from paradise for them, dresses come. So they dress up, put on their crowns, get on their buraqs and go straight without questioning, to where? To the Sirat bridge. With whom do they meet on the sirat? Angels. Angels say to them: “O servants of Allah, who are you? Did you have your reckoning? No. Did you have your deeds weighed? No. Have you seen paradise & hell? No. Where are you going like this? Our Lord has forgiven us, put us on buraqs & made us dress up with beautiful dresses. We are going to paradise.” Whole Mahshar people watch them. “O people, who were you?” They say “We were from the Afdals, most Afdals”. “What was your afdaliyyah, your highest rank above everyone?” They say “If a person swears on us, we wouldn’t respond. If they beat us, wouldn’t respond. If they behave ill-tempered, we wouldn’t respond same way. We would forgive. So the Lord of Heavens made us from afdals in His Presence. So they send them to paradise, by saying “‘Ajru Al-`Amilina”.
Again an angel rises & announces: “O those of you from the Nation of Muhammad (ﷺ), arise O you who were from the sabirin. May they arise” So all of them arise & get collected from the lines one by one. They are such ones who are collected from the lines among people. Again they ask them, from whom were you? They say, We were from the sabirin. Our Lord granted us wealth & took it back, we were patient. Gave us sons & took them back. We were patient. If troubles reached us, we would be patient It was because of patience that the Lord of Heavens forgave the sabirin. They also are dressed with the most beautiful dresses & everybody watches them & they also leave. Angels ask them again “from whom were you?” They say “we were from the sabirin”. They are also sent to paradise directly by saying ‘Ajru Al`Amilin and settle there.
This time again the announcing angel calls: “Where are those people who would perform the 5 prayers & fast. They would pray at nighttime, they would give their zakat from what the Lord of Heavens granted. They would feed people & give to people” They also arise & come. They are also dressed & sent with a ride.
This time an announcer calls again, “where are those people who ‘wa al-mutahabbina fi Allah’?” They are the ones that loved, that visited each other for Allah’s sake. They are also collected & brought. Again they are asked “from whom were you?” “We were from the ones who visited, who loved each other for the sake of Allah”. Meaning these ikhwans (mureeds) are from them, who love each other for Allah. When they leave also, the Lord of Heavens says: “These are My neighbors, their visits were for Me. Their gathering was for Me. Their dhikrs, worshippings were for Me. They are My neighbors” and a Nur/Light comes out from them that whole people in Mahshar get surprised. When they ask “What is this Nur?” “This is the Nur of Dhikr of Allah, that they come together & make dhikr & worship together, so it is their Nur & they also go all in Nur. They are also from who enter Paradise without any reckoning & questioning.
After sending them, a head comes out from the Hell. His eyes are such that, it burns wherever it may touch. He says, “And now, I am after 3 kinds of people.” When asked “who are these people?”, he says “first are those who worship idols. Who worshipped idols so they left Allah & prostrated to idols.” He will collect them from the lines like a rooster pecks at the ground for food. So he collects them & throws them into hell without reckoning. The others go to paradise without reckoning & these enter hell without reckoning.
So after he throws them to fire without reckoning he comes up again & says: I am after arrogant & proud (magrour) people. They thought of themselves highly in dunya, they were arrogant & looked down on people. The Lord of Heavens made them so small, like ants that they are crushed under peoples’ feet. So he collects these people & says “Here, you were getting proud”. Because Al-kibriya‚ Äòu lillah wal-`azamatu Lillah- The Greatness is for Allah, Grandeur/ Pride, all belong to Allah. So by this, they become partners to Allah.
So after throwing them also, some more people come. When asked “who are these people?”, he says “they are who transgressed against the rights of others” He either employed him & did not pay his right or lent money & didn’t pay it back The Lord of Heavens doesn’t interfere in servants’ rights. What is between Him & the servant, He forgives or punishes, as He likes. “Yaghfiru Liman Yasha’u Wa Yu`adhdhibu Man Yasha’u” (3:129) He (swt) says. He forgives whom He wills & punishes whom He wills but doesn’t interfere in the rights of servants. It is such that if a person owed another 1 cent, his 1 cent is on the other one unlawfully- for this 1 cent he says: “I may give you 2 rakat from my prayer” He says “No”, “I may give you 10 rakats” he says no. There is no money, no wealth there; only worshipping, if he has. He offers 2 rakats, doesn’t accept. For 1 cent, he takes 70 rakats of prayer which is performed & accepted. There is no forgiving there anymore: “this one is my relative, he forgives This one loves me and I him, he forgives..” No one forgives one another there. So don’t leave dunya with (unfulfilled) rights of another on you. So this time he collects such who transgressed others rights & throws them like this.
And after this, the balance is set. After these are finished first, the balance is set with everybody’s book of rewards & sins. The book of rewards is put on right side & the book of sins on left side. But the opposite of our system, the heavy side doesn’t come down but the heavy side goes up. And everybody will see it. If one’s rewards are heavy, then people will see it. If his sins are heavier, the heavy side goes up so that everybody will see it. So either they say for him “Tooba, glad tidings” or they curse on him, whole people.
And finally, a line of people arrives. In front of them, their Hoja or Shaykh- whoever they followed & behind him are the people, his followers. They come in lines one by one & stand by the balance in, the presence of L.of H. The books are distributed at that time, & it is first given to their Hoja. Then after him to the others & said to them: “Aqra’ Kitabaka Kaf√° Binafsika Al-Yawma `Alayka Hasibaan” (17:14) Read, that there is reckoning for you today. Nothing,even it is the weight of an atom is gone to waste, either thawab or sin. So he(Hoja) opens his book & looks in it. He sees that the good deeds are little & sins.. All his thawabs are written on the cover of his book & his sins inside. The Lord of Heavens also shows his sins that he knows what he did, that we can’t pass by saying “I had no sin in dunya”. After seeing this, he says “woe to me! What will happen to me now?” And the people outside see his book from outside saying “O Lord, have You created anyone better than this servant?” Each one of his worships from outside shines like a star, like a sun. And in the end of the book, it writes “al abd al muznibu wa Rabb al Ghafur” The servant is sinner and Your Lord is forgiving. So all the sins inside are deleted and it is left all white. This time, he steps down with his book in his hand. And all who follow him come like this before he steps down. They say “how happy are we that our Lord made us find you in dunya. How happy are we that we found the way of Allah with you”. They get happy like this. They are dressed with crowns, beautiful dresses and they are sent directly, with their hoja leading & behind are his mureeds, or let’s say his students, men & women, they go towards paradise.
This time a second group comes. This second group are Muslim but they were not on the way of Allah. This time, also their leader comes. And they are dressed with dresses of tar. They give them their books. While trying to take it from right side his hand gets dry & can’t hold. He wants to hold it by his neck. They know that who takes from right goes to paradise and who takes from left to hell. His neck also dries so finally they give to his left hand. They say “Read”. He has little thawab in it & on the cover of the book are written his sins. Each one of the sins takes the shape of a dragon or such. And the people who followed him say: “We wish that “Layta Bayni Wa Baynaka Bu`da Al-Mashriqayni” (43:38) the distance between you & us were from East to West that we wouldn’t see you, we wouldn’t follow you”. His group curses him like this. This time he says “If I didn’t come to you, maybe all of you were going to be like me”. This time all dressed with dresses of tar & put on their faces. And they go to hell. Like this, either stay on the good side with a good one & you go with him. Or you be from the bad side and at that time if Allah does not forgive, than he becomes like this, from hell people.
May Allah make each one of us be with His servants who guide to the ways of khayr. Fatiha.
