In this lecture, Ustadh Mahmud goes through these sayings from Munabbihat, the counsels of five.

Counsel 1:
In near future there will come a time when my community (ummah) will love five things while forgetting
five other things.
(1) They will love this world but forget about the Next world (akhirah).
(2) They will love their (temporal) homes but forget about graves.
(3) They will love wealth but forget about the accounting on the Day of Judgement.
(4) They will love their families but forget about the pure companions in the heaven (Hur).
(5) They will love their carnal selves (nafs) but forget about Allah.– Muhammad (s.a.w)

Counsel 2:
It is related from ‘Umar (r.a) that either he or Muhammad (s.a.w) said, “ If there were no fear of the claim
to knowing the future, I would have testified that five categories of people will enter Paradise.
(1) Those poor men who struggled to provide sustenance for their large families.
(2) Those women whose husbands were pleased with them.
(3) Those women who (waived the payment of or) returned dowry (mahr) to their poor husbands.
(4) Those children whose parents were pleased with them.
(5) Those who sought forgiveness for their sins.”
