Some reminders mentioned in Khutbah by Dr. Aiyub Palmer for pondering:




25:26

ٱلْمُلْكُ يَوْمَئِذٍ ٱلْحَقُّ لِلرَّحْمَـٰنِ ۚ وَكَانَ يَوْمًا عَلَى ٱلْكَـٰفِرِينَ عَسِيرًۭا ٢٦

True authority on that Day will belong ˹only˺ to the Most Compassionate. And it will be a hard day for the disbelievers.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran




25:27

وَيَوْمَ يَعَضُّ ٱلظَّالِمُ عَلَىٰ يَدَيْهِ يَقُولُ يَـٰلَيْتَنِى ٱتَّخَذْتُ مَعَ ٱلرَّسُولِ سَبِيلًۭا ٢٧

And ˹beware of˺ the Day the wrongdoer will bite his nails ˹in regret˺ and say, “Oh! I wish I had followed the Way along with the Messenger!

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran




25:28

يَـٰوَيْلَتَىٰ لَيْتَنِى لَمْ أَتَّخِذْ فُلَانًا خَلِيلًۭا ٢٨

Woe to me! I wish I had never taken so-and-so as a close friend.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran




25:29

لَّقَدْ أَضَلَّنِى عَنِ ٱلذِّكْرِ بَعْدَ إِذْ جَآءَنِى ۗ وَكَانَ ٱلشَّيْطَـٰنُ لِلْإِنسَـٰنِ خَذُولًۭا ٢٩

It was he who truly made me stray from the Reminder after it had reached me.” And Satan has always betrayed humanity.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran



It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah said:

"Religion is sincerity, religion is sincerity (Al-Nasihah), religion is sincerity." They said; "To whom, O Messenger of Allah?" He said: "To Allah, to His Book, to His Messenger, to the imams of the Muslims and to their common folk."
