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

Counsel 1:
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.”

Counsel 2:
The signs of those people who fear Allah (muttaqin) are five.
(1) They only associate with those people with whom their religion remains intact.
(2) They excel in subduing their modesty and tongues.
(3) When they are privileged with too much bounties of this world, they consider such to be means of affliction
for them (in the Next world), while when they find their minor religious deeds to have been accepted, they consider
such to be exceptional.
(4) They do not fill their stomachs (even) with halal (permitted) food fearing that anything haram (forbidden)
might be mixed with it.
(5) They consider themselves ruined while the rest of the people to have earned salvation. – ‘Uthman r.a
