A Lecture By Ustadh Majed Mahmoud

This lecture serves to be a reminder to all Muslims, the path to Jannah is paved with difficulties. It won’t be easy. The promises of Jannah are greater than any one of us can imagine. It a motivational video to remind us that we must earn the right (just like with all other things in life) to be among those who will be allowed to enter. We must become the kind of person deserving of Jannah.

Hope this video helps you refocus and motivates you on whats truly important.

Transcription of the video:

Is there any doctor that would make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year

without going through any kind of MCAT’s , PCAT’s, DAT’s, chemistry, biology,

Whatever class, where he or she has to be examined and take the test?

Can anyone join the basketball team or the soccer team without going through some tests and tryouts?

Can anyone take their driver’s license without taking a driving test?

And now when Allah (subahaanahu wa ta’ala) says…

Do you guys think out of your mind that you will be saying, ‘I believe!’ and you will not be tested?

Allah is telling you that, you will be left alone saying I believe and don’t test.


Allah (subahaanahu wa ta’ala) says…

And you think you will enter paradise just like that?

And you will not face what the people in the past have faced?

They faced sicknesses, poverty, calamities and they were shaken…out of test and trials.

 You think you will just say I believe and enter Jannah?

You think you would just go with life so smoothly and you will go to Jannah where you have a mansion.

Where you go around and all kind of food is around.

You will go to Jannah and you will never ever in your life be sad or depressed.

You will go to Jannah and enjoy every beautiful scene around you.

You think you will go to Jannah where in that place you will never be sick.

You will never sneeze except beauty.

You will never have any sweat and if you had sweat…

when you have sweat it will be musk and beautiful smell.

When you go to Jannah your house will be made of bricks of gold and silver…

all that in Jannah just like that?! And when you go to Jannah and you enjoy the most beautiful thing in the world – the most beautiful thing which you will ever experience, which is seeing Allah (subahaanahu wa ta’ala).

You seeing Allah (subahaanahu wa ta’ala) is the most beautiful thing in the world. You would just get it just like that?
