16 – Deeds and the Criterion of Acceptance- Awaken- Shaykh Abdullah Misra

In the sixteenth episode of this series, Shaykh Abdullah Misra covers three hadiths from Kitab al-Riqaq, which convey the cure to a hard heart and provide a means to reach Allah Most High. The first hadith describes how good deeds will come forth to intercede on behalf of a person on the Day of Judgement, and his Islam will be the first thing that Allah Most High will look at.

The second hadith provides an example from the Prophet’s life (Allah bless him and give him peace) to demonstrate the significance of the sweetness of worship for someone who is undistracted by the luxuries of this world.

The third hadith contains succinct and profound advice given by the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) to a man who asked for brief counsel. Shaykh Abdullah explains the meanings of the three primary counsels given: praying as though it is your farewell prayer, not saying anything that you will regret tomorrow, and gathering your despair for what is in the hands of people.
