A hard hitting lecture delivered by our noble brother regarding the importance of saving ourselves and our families from the punishment of the hereafter; one which will cause the hearts to tremble with fear and the eyes to shed tears of grief over those actions we have put forward.
Our noble brother delivers a hard hitting admonition, invoking the listener to protect and save themselves from a fire whose fuel is men and stones. Protect yourselves from the fire by abandoning sinning and disbelief, and increase in repentance and good deeds before a time comes when it will be too late. Protect yourself from a burning fire which burns seventy times greater than the fire we know, a fire and a punishment for which there is no relief; for the one who receives this punishment will call upon His Lord for it to be lessened, but it will never be lessened. O you sitting in the dark committing sin, fearing the people will see you, know that your Lord sees you! Fear Allāh and His punishment, and turn in repentance to Him and abandon your sins, and cry for fear of His punishment, and if you cannot cry then force yourself to cry, for in the hereafter the only tears left to be shed will be tears of blood. O Ahl al-Sunnah! Be the children of the hereafter and do not be the children of this dunyā, for today is a time for actions without accountability, but tomorrow will be a time of accountability without actions.
