Description :

What exactly are the Day of Judgment, Heaven and Hell? The speaker explains what one may expect with these issues of the unseen. Despite the briefness in which this lecture is presented, the listener can expect to gain a more thorough understanding of these serious and unavoidable topics.

This book is a compilation of some of the wise sayings of the Beloved Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, of the companions, and of the pious predecessors and ascetics. Reflecting on these wise sayings and heeding these counsels will assist in infusing us with the requisite awareness and fervour to prepare for the Day of Judgement. Verliy, we are all in need of such counsel, for our Day of Judgment begins not when the world ends, but when our life comes to an end - which is indeed imminent - as the Beloved Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, stated. 

Counsel of Threes.

---[1] It has been reported that the Beloved Prophet Muhammad, ﷺ, said, "The one who wakes up in the morning and complains about the scarcity of livelihood, it is as though he is complaining against his Lord. The one who wakes up and is sad over the affairs of the dunya, is as though he has woken up angry with Allah. And the one who humbles himself in front of a rich man because of his wealth will have lost two thirds of his Religion."
---[2] Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, said, "There are three things which can not be attained through another three: wealth with hope, youth with dyeing [the hair], and health with medication."
---[3] Umar ibn al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, said, "good interaction with people is half of intelligence, good questioning is half of knowledge, and good planning is half of subsistence."
---[4] Uthman ibn Affan, may Allah be pleased with him, said, "the one who leaves the dunya Allah Exalted will love him; and the one who leaves sins, the Angels will love him; and the one who has no craving for the possessions of the Muslims, the Muslims will love him."  

Counsel of Nines. [1] The Beloved of Allah, ﷺ, said, " Allah the Exalted revealed to Musa ibn Imran (Moses) in the Torah that the source of all mistakes are three - arrogance, envy and greed. Another six diseases were born out of these three, and thus they became nine - satiety, excessive sleep, excessive rest, love of wealth, love of praise, and love of leadership."


Imam ibn Hajar al-Asqalani :

He is 'Shaykh al Islam' Imam Al-Hafidh Abul Fadl Shihab ud-Din Ahmad ibn Ali ibn Muhammad Al-Kinani Ash-Shafi'i. Known as Ibn Hajar Al-'Asqalani, may Allah be pleased with him, he was born on Sha'ban 773H in Egypt. Ibn Hajr authored more than 150 books - most of them being in study of Hadith - which flourished during his lifetime, kings and princes were known in his time to exchange gifts consisting of Ibn Hajar's works. His other most famous book is Fath ul Baari fi Sharh Sahih Bukhari : a commentary on the superb collection of Hadith by Imam Muhammad ibn Ismail Al-Bukhari. (It is the most famous and well-informative commentary on Sahih Bukhari).

Ibn Hajar was a prominent Qadi in Egypt as well as in Ash-Sham for twenty-one years. He was humble, tolerant, and patient. He was described to be steadfast, prudent, ascetic, selfless, generous, charitable, and he spent much time in voluntary prayer and fasting. Those who came to know him praised him of his high standard of good mannerisms in dealing with rulers, Imams, as well as those who sat with him young or old. Ibn Hajar passed away in Dhu'l Hijjah in 852H, and was buried in al-Qarrafa, Cairo, now famously known as the City of the Dead (madinat al-mawta).
