In this lecture, Ustadh Mahmud goes through this saying from Munabbihat, the counsels of six.

Counsel 1:

A believer is always surrounded by six fears:

(1) fear of Allah, the exalted, that he might lose his faith (iman) (for having done something which may not have been right)

(2) fear of the two recording angels that they have recorded something that will expose him on the Day of Judgment to the rest of the people

(3) fear that Satan will render his actions void (by enticing him into committing sin)

(4) fear of the angel of death that he would come to take his soul when he is in a state of heedlessness

(5)  fear that this world (dunya) will delude him and make him work for other than the hereafter

(6) fear about his family members that their company will preoccupy him much that he neglects the remembrance of Allah s.w.t

– Uthman (r.a)

Ustadh Mahmud also goes through these sayings from Munabbihat, the counsels of five.

Counsel 2:

There will come a time upon my ummah (community) when they will love five things while forgetting about five other things:

(1) they will love this world but completely forget about the Next World

(2) they will love their (temporal)homes but forget about their own grave

(3) they will love wealth but forget about the accounting on the Day of Judgment

(4) they will love their worldly wives but forget about what Jannah has to offer (Hur)

(5) they will love their carnal selves (nafs) but forget about Allah

They have nothing to do with me and I have nothing to do with them.

– Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w)

Counsel 3:

Make use of five things before five others:

(1) youth before old age

(2) health before sickness

(3) wealth before poverty

(4) life before death

(5) leisure before work

– Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w)
