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

Counsel 1:
A time will come upon my ummah where they will love five things while forgetting five others.
(1) They will love the life of this world but completely forget about the eternal life in the hereafter (akhirah).
(2) They will love their (temporal) homes but forget about the eternal homes (graves).
(3) They will love wealth but forget about the accounting on the Day of Judgment.
(4) They will love their spouses and forget about their hurul- ain (what Allah bestows upon them in Paradise).
(5) They will love their carnal selves (nafs) but forget Allah.
To this Rasulullah (s.a.w) says they have nothing to do with me and I have nothing to do with them. –  Muhammad (s.a.w)  

Counsel 2:
Allah does not bestow five qualities on a person until He prepares the way with another five for him.
These are:
(1) Allah does not give him shukr except that He has prepared for him an increase in provision and sustenance.
(2) Allah does not give him Dua except that He has prepared acceptance for him.
(3) Allah does not give him ability to beg for forgiveness (istighfar) except that He has prepared for him forgiveness.
(4) Allah does not give him repentance (tawbah) except that He has prepared for him acceptance.
(5) Allah does not give charity except that He has prepared for him acceptance and rewards. – Muhammad (s.a.w)
