Just akmola Hayden was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah, you are the
shallow concluding our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a skeleton of a Ouija the prophetic biography.
Today's session inshallah is going to be the last in the series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the logical conclusion of the cedaw, the study of the CETA that I personally just saw, we, of course, not in the previous session, but the one before that, we covered a lot that we covered the passing of the profits a lot exam. And while that might seem like a logical conclusion, as I mentioned previously, as well, many of the scholars in the books of deceit, I usually have at least two more entries after and without the two things that are usually mentioned, after the passing of the profits a lot, he said, as part of the logical conclusion is,
the first thing is that succession, because the very first thing that was done by the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the aftermath of the passing of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the appointing of what kind of deep reading Allahu taala Han who,
as the leader of the Muslims as hanifa, to rasulillah, as the successor of the Messenger of God and the leader of the Muslims in the believers.
The second thing that is usually mentioned in the, again, the aftermath of the passing of the prophets a lot, he seldom then is the actual laying to rest of the body of the Messenger of God, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, I say that with a lot of
precaution, and I wanted to talk about that, just very briefly, I say that with a lot of precaution, the way I phrase it, laying the link to rest the body of the messengers a lot he sent them, because not only out of respect and out of reverence of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. But secondly, something I'm not going to get into a lot of detail here,
deliberately, because it's not so much a subject that is studied as a part of the serum as a part of the prophetic biography. Rather, it is a subject that is studied when discussing some of the issues of Aikido, or Islamic theology.
And that is simply the issue that there is a lot of discussion about what exactly is the nature of the afterlife of profits.
So very quickly, just to kind of allude to what some of the conversation is, so everyone understands kind of my sense of precaution.
Number one is that there's a discussion obviously, about the souls and the afterlife of the prophets of God. So as we read in the Parana about shuhada, the marchers right what what what what are Taku Lila Dena cuchillo feasability Watson, but
in therapy was a boon, that do not say about those who were killed in the path of God in the line of fire, defending the religion of God that they are dead, but rather they are alive, and we know that Allah subhanaw taala honors them with the type of life and sustenance in the afterlife.
Secondly, however, there is also authored There are also authentic narrations from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim along with the other authentic collections of Hadith and Sunnah, that the prophets a lot he speaks about this in a lot how Rama at the southern MBA,
that God forbade the bodies of the profits upon the earth, meaning that the Earth was commanded by God, not to eat away at the body
And therefore, you know, as far as we know, we can presume that their bodies are also protected by Allah subhanaw taala.
Thirdly, there is a narration about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam referencing that on the night of a dishonorable mirage. When he was traveling, that journey that distance, that at one point in time, he was able to see down into the grave of Musa alayhis salam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that he was praying in his grave.
Now we're lucky Jelani michelob exactly what that means and what that implies. But there's a lot of discussion around that. Suffice it to say that this is a subject that we are best discussing more cautiously and carefully. There are been moments unfortunately and tragically within Islamic history, where polemics have dominated the conversation, and people have taken on have engaged in debates. And God taken a debate to a very inappropriate level, where the challenge one another and they debate one another, and they discuss the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in his grave and so on and so forth. My very my personal viewpoint is that the entire afterlife is a mystery. The
entire afterlife is a mystery.
What we there are certain things we know that there is an afterlife, we believe in that.
So what we know we believe in that, the exact details of it, the nature of it, it's completely a mystery to us. So we are better off not talking about and not discussing things that we have absolutely no certain knowledge in regards to, particularly when it comes to the subject of our beloved messengers in the love bombing, send them the beloved of God,
then caution, and precaution is the best course. So that's I just wanted to kind of explain that.
Why I phrase it the way that I do. Nevertheless, as we have talked about the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, he passed away Monday morning, late Monday morning.
We talked about how after the initial part of Monday, the prophets, the companions were dealing with and reeling from the passing of the prophets, Alavi Salaam the greatest tragedy that ever be felt anyone. Shortly thereafter, that Monday evening, the conversation occurred about the leadership of the Muslim Ummah going forward, because they needed to make sure that there was not that a gap was not created in a vacuum was not left, that would leave the room exposed. And that would start that that could create a crisis within the community, a crisis of confidence within the community. So Monday evening, is when the initial appointment of a casa de Cali Allahu taala Han who took place as
the leader of the Muslims in and as the successor of the messenger Salafi Center. This continued on into Tuesday, and most of the morning in the daytime of Tuesday, the early part of Tuesday was spent similarly, with people assembling, gathering. And in the machine of the profits a lot it's him giving the oath of allegiance to Abu Bakr radi Allahu talanoa is the leader of the Muslims.
That further than resulted in avacado, the Allahu taala, on who, around the time of the hood, publicly addressing the entire oma and essentially giving what was the inaugural address of his law firm.
After that, everyone now turned their attention to now let's make sure that we are able to fulfill the final rights of the messenger sallallahu wasallam. A lot of times what is referred to as the funeral rites, the janazah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When we talk about the final rights of anyone,
particularly the messenger Salamis Hello, the very first thing that needs to be taken care of is the washing of the body.
the washing of the body is the very first thing that is done.
So on the day of Tuesday, later on the day of Tuesday, that is when they began this entire procedure. There are a number of different narrations
one of the narrations in the Muslim world of Umar Mohammed. And it's also mentioned in some of the other books of Hadith as well. mentions that from Abdullah Abbas radi Allahu Turan, Omar, it's the
at La Lu.
That the people got
together for the washing of the body into the profits a lot he sent out and in the home in the home where they were going to wash the body, the home of eyeshadow, the Allahu taala and how there was nobody in there except for family. Um, who Allah basava Abdulmutallab. First and foremost, of course, it was the uncle of the profits a lot. He sent him a bus. And you know, we taught him the cousin in the senate love the profits a lot. He said Miley and father Luma bass, you had the older son of a bass, the cousin of the prophets, a lot each Father, you had some emotional outbursts one of the other sons of abass Oussama niharika,
which is very, very touching.
Osama, who we've talked about previously, but just a quick refresher, is the son of a man
who was when the profits a lot this one was young was the nanny of the profits a lot a sellout. She looked after him in the profits. A lot of these him would refer to her as a mother and his father's aid in the Hadith. Oh, who was Shaheed at this point, he had died as a martyr in the Battle of Muhtar. He was like an adopted son to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So because of that husana was very beloved to the prophets. A lot of the sermon was often referred to by the other companions as Hebrew rasulillah, the Beloved of the Messenger of God. And so recognizing how beloved he was in the profits, a lot of us included within this family affair.
And then another individual that was also included within the group was Salim Mola, rasulillah he's
one of the freed slaves of the Prophet ceylonese from Sania who had served the Prophet prophets a lot he said them towards the end of his life was also included within the group. And this showed basically what the legacy of the prophets a lot he said was that the prophets a lot of fat family was a lot bigger than tribal blood. And that these people in their relationship to the profits a lot of was recognized and validated.
In this now procedure of washing the body of the profits, a lot of them are delivering our buses for illegal Nila surgery.
Whenever the body of the deceased is usually washed, the outer, which is basically for men between the navel and the knee, that is the private area of a man's body that must remain covered. The typical procedure is that that area of the body remains covered, that area of the body remains covered, you leave a cloth over that area of the body. And then the shirt. The legs are open the arms, the shoulders, the leg and the shirt, the chest that is open that is uncovered. And then the body is washed. And as far as that more I guess we can refer to it as kind of the primary region of the body between the navel and the knee for a man that a cloth is kept on top of that. And basically
the the water is poured in either from on top of the cloth, like the aid is washed or cleaned. Or in some cases, you wrap a cloth around the hand or you put a glove on, and then you're able to wash the body. For the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they went an extra step.
They went an extra step. The prophets of God is not a commies. He had a long shirt. They kept that shirt on the profits. A lot of them they did not remove a shirt that was long that went down below his knees to basically mid calf or mid shin.
And they left the shirt on the profits a lot out of respect and out of reverence for the profits a lot. So it mentioned that for us another who are legal Isla de arriba de la jolla went behind and sat behind the prophets a lot. They lifted his body up and he leaned him against his chest and the left upper means on well, Canada abus will further work with them. You can the buena humara Lee
and the three individuals are abus fuddle and the two sons Mr. Bass or bass and his two sons. They basically were helping a leader the Allahu terrano handle the body and were lightly gently rubbing the body to to clean it from on top of the shirt. Out of respect
will kinda Osama to say it was Sania mo Davina. Use some use of bad email and Oussama insider reading a lot.
Alanna, they were pouring the water while he was holding his body.
And the three of them gently lightly rubbed the body from on top of the shirt to cleanser.
With Gianni yasi Lou, and Alina, the Allahu terrano. Similarly was rubbing the back cleaning the back while they continue to pour the water. Because again, even if you're wearing a shirt, you pour enough water the water gets through, and you're able to still cleanse.
And again, also keeping in mind, we're talking about the profits a lot of the profits a lot of times purity, right then there's not the idea of filthiness with the profits a lot of them number one, right remember all the narrations almost celebrated the Allahu taala and he says that when I went to go see the body of the prophets, a lot of them after he passed them I touched his chest. The scent that was that stuck to my hand. She said weeks passed.
weeks passed in the Senate would not leave my hand.
At the Chateau de la jolla. Anna says the fragrances smelled on that day, I never smelled anything like that ever again. And the clothes remember I mentioned this, the garments of profits a lot he was wearing when he passed away. When people came years later. There's an occasion where some of the 10 year olds eight years later some of the Sahaba excuse me, these eight years later we came to visit omona shadow the Allahu taala and and we were visiting her and we just told her please tell us about the passing of the prophets allottee zone and she told us and then she said wait a minute, she went inside the apartment, her home and she came back out with two garments and she said this is
what the profits a lot he was wearing. When he passed away and she they say when she came out with those garments, we could smell the fragrance. So we're talking about the profits a lot. But even in the case of ordinary people, the washing of the body of the deceased is a ritual is a ritual. again of course we want to remove impurities. But the idea is not like a like a bath or a shower that the living take.
It's primarily a ritual right? So even just a gentle tool cleansing from on top of the cloth was sufficient. And it
goes on to say well I'm yarraman Rasulullah, sallAllahu supershape and Moroccan will make et
and even the part of the body of a maggot that is normally uncovered like the chest in the stomach and things like that was not seen of the profits of lobbying was not uncovered. Again out of respect for him. Well, we will be available only Martha Hagen woman Geeta, and alumina Vitaly radi Allahu taala who became overcome with emotion. And he said, Be unbeatable. Well, me, I would sacrifice everything for you my Yaba how fragrant and how beautiful you are, how young woman Keaton in life and even in depth had to either find out who meaninglessly Rasulullah salatu salam then they completed the washing of the body of the profits a lot he said oh
we're gonna universal bill mine was Southern. They washed him with this water that leaves had been boiled into the water to add some fragrance
Jaffa food and then they took some like towels or dry cloth and they dried him
through assuming I behave my use now will make it then they basically further continue to prepare the body of the profits a lot isn't like a maggots. Normally the deceased is readied Thema woodridge ifisa nothing as Robin then they took three costs to wrap the body of the profits a lot so in Sylvania lane there were two white cloths were good they were good the Hebrew rotten and then they had a long kind of like a almost like a blanket or a sheet that the wrapped him in.
Call as a medallion bus
passes my father then called two men for colony, una de la vrb.
He said go notify Aveda giraph Cannavaro VEDA is roughly the anti burka so I'll get to this in just a moment.
But this was the washing of the body of the prophets a lot.
When it comes before I move on to the next topic, when it comes to the washing of the body of the profits a lot. There's a very fascinating detail. There's a very very fascinating detail found in two narrations
number one it's mentioned in a narration found in this
Delilah Nobu Aviva will be happy, and other books of the cylinder as well. That
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he specifically
and instructed are live in a Vitaly but are the Allahu taala on
that he said that when I die He said wash my body with the water from the well of hearts
either admit to
when I pass away Fox in Fox Sydney remind us he said wash my body with the well with the water from the well of course.
And this well of course, is very fascinating the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says another narration that Nirmal Rojas. He said the best well is the Well of course, he Amina reunion agenda. It is from the streams of Paradise, where Maha Mia and it's water is the best of water. What kind of a slice a lot is enemy you start with a bloomin Ha. Well, who see them in barriers, the profits a lot is him while he was alive, he used to enjoy the water of the one of us. He would oftentimes go there get the water from there, you will drink the water maybe we'll do with the water. And before he passed away on his deathbed, he told me better without him, that when you wash my body wash it
with the water from the well of laughs
and that's very fascinating.
What is the significance of the will of letters of all things? Why? And where is the Well of course located the well of ours is located on one of the farther areas of the city of Medina. And it was it's actually near where the garden was where the date palm trees were planted for a set amount in fantasy, the garden of some modern fantasy, it's near their
What is the significance? Why did the prophets lobby some specifically instruct his body to be washed by the well, the water from the well of course. So there's some discussion about that. Number one is that it's documented that the well of Horus actually belonged to the Prophet ceylonese.
It belonged to the Prophet somebody.
Someone had gifted it to him. He alakea Rasul Allah, they had gifted it him so technically belong to him. But again, as we know, we talked about it previously, when the Prophet sallahu son passed away, everything that he owned previously, now was basically donated to the Ummah, right la luna, metallic Masada, everything we leave is set upon. So that well became donated to the people of Medina and even till today, it's actually a public well, and it provides water to that area around it, and there's actually a school built right next to it. And all the water in that school is from that well.
So this well became donated, but technically before the passing of the profits, a lot of it belonged to him, it was gifted to him.
And from that, some of the commentators, they extract two lessons. Number One was that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not want to create did not want there to be any, even the slightest possibility of there being some rivalry or divisiveness in the aftermath of the passing of the profits, a lot of these
because most of the well all the wells belong to some tribe or some family or another. And if they got water from here, then they would say, Oh, the profits a lot of body was washed by the water from our world, versus hours versus hours and this would become a rivalry. It has the potential to become divisive. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam concluded his affair with great unity, by basically providing me ensuring that his body would be washed by the water from the wealth that was owned by him, not by anyone else.
Number two, the second lesson that they derive from this is the following. That there's something very beautiful that some of the scholars have written, and they say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the last need
the last need that a person has. The last worldly need a person has is the water
by which their bodies washed, the cloth in which they are shrouded
and the ground that they are buried in.
Those are the last three needs that a person has worldly needs.
The water to wash their body, the cloth to shrub them in, and the earth to bury them. Think about in our communities as well, somebody passes away janazah arrangements have to be made. And those are three things we got to figure out.
And so, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
even the very last of his worldly needs,
it was nothing was asked of anyone.
No, Sam was left except for the profits a lot. I'm just incapable of paying you back. Allah will have to reward him on my behalf. But the last three worldly needs of the profits, a lot of the water came from the world that he owned.
The cloth was cloth that was owned by him, that he was shrouded in.
And the ground that he was buried in was the apartment, the home of eyeshadow, the return on his own.
And so, even the final arrangements of the profits, a lot of them there was
they were completely self sufficient. So this is the washing of the body of the profits.
Now, the second thing is the shrouding the cuffin taxine shrouding. So as I mentioned earlier,
that the profits a lot is almost wrapped in shrouded in three garments, three garments. And these three garments are referred to in a number of different excuse me,
in a number of different narrations, they are referred to as suhu. Liga. So, Julio, that they were wiped garments thalassa t fo abin buildin suhu Liga T.
What is so holy, I mean that they were three white garments and the word subramaniya refers to one of two things. Number one, that a lot of times when they would kind of pre wash a garment, they would call it to Julio.
The second thing is that sahul is also the name of a town in Yemen,
a village in Yemen. So a lot of times the garments that would be called to Julio were Yemeni garments.
They were Yemeni garments. So this could also be alluding to the idea that these were very fine garments are good garments that they were from Yemen.
And there's another narration that actually explicitly mentions that the profits are largely somewhat shrouded in three white garments, Yemeni and that were from government.
They were cotton garments, very simple, but nevertheless clean and in nice white clean garments.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
the prophets a lot there's there's a fascinating narration
that amount will be hopefully presents. inshallah the Allahu taala narrates that after the three garments that they had shrouded the prophets a lot, he said, I mean, there was one big sheet that they wanted to wrap around over everything. It's not necessary. He was traveling in three garments that were complete. And then they wanted to take one last sheet and wrap them up in a blanket or was like, but it was deemed unnecessary. Abdullah bin Avi, Becca, the son of Abu Bakar, the brother of the law, he brought this blanket and he put it down and he said wrap the profits lobbies. I mean this after you traveled it, they wrapped him in it. But then they said this is not necessary. So
they open the wrap. And they said we don't need it. So Abdullah he took it he said okay, no, right. It's okay.
When he took it, he basically ended up
writing his was saying that when I die, wrap me in this blanket because the profits a lot of times wrapped in this blanket. All right. And so this is kind of a fascinating narration that,
that basically this was one of the things that occurred when they were wrapping the body of the prophets. allottee. So the last thing, the third thing is usually not the last thing. The third thing was the janazah of the prophets a lot. So the janaza prayer, we know that after washing of the body, there is the wrapping of the body to shroud and the third funeral, right, that is offered is the Salatin janazah, the funeral prayer.
So there was a lot of discussion about how should we pray indigenize out of the profits on the levada center.
So a lot of discussion was happening at this particular time, but should we do
So it's narrated that while they were trying to figure this out Abubakar Siddique radi Allahu taala, on who presented a solution.
He said, first and foremost, obviously, everybody wants to participate in the janazah of the prophets a lot easier.
Number two, everyone kind of wants an opportunity to be able to say their farewell so the prophets a lot.
Thirdly, there was also kind of this understanding that the funeral prayer,
if we look at the wording of the funeral prayer, there are four things to be taught. The first beat is appraising glorification of Allah. The second attribute is salutations upon the prophets a lot. So
the third tip is followed by a supplication for the deceased, a lot of mcfeely hygiena omega t now, it's for the forgiveness of the departed.
There was this understanding as well that the prophets of Allah who was already forgiven
Dr. farella Camargo, Mata padam in them be going with
the profits a lot of the same has already forgiven. So there's no prayer for his forgiveness.
Furthermore, you pray for someone you know, and make the offer them because they need your prayer. The profits, a lot of them doesn't meet our prayers. We needed his prayers.
So the from this, they also understood that this prayer, if you will, of the prophets allottee
is actually going to be more like singing Salawat.
On top of everything, you also add in the fact that the prophets a lot of them have told them that prophets are granted a very unique type of life in the afterlife. They're not dead the way that we are.
So then how do we kind of make sense of that?
So they realize that our farewell to the Prophet somalisa will not be a Salatu janaza will not be praying for his forgiveness, our farewell to the prophets a lot of these him is going to be
us sings Salaam to the prophets Allah
sent sending Salawat on the profits of Peace and blessings salutations doodled upon the Prophet slavisa that is how we will bid farewell. So at that particular time, we work around the local salon who suggested the following procedure.
He basically suggested that
after they had washed the body of the profits a lot so they're in the apartment of Ayesha, they had dried him. Then they wrapped him up in the blankets in the in the in the cloth, excuse me in the shroud in the sheets, and they had cleaned up the area. They then said lay the body of the profits a lot on the bed on a bad place a bed setting and lay his body on the bed of the city. And then people will be lined up outside
and 10 people or so at a time. However many can reasonably fit into the apartment divided by the elevator and a standing room only. Because again, it was not a very big area. It's a very humble apartment hotel. But 10 or 12 people however many can stand will be allowed in they will come they will stand for a few minutes.
Abu Bakar in this was started by so to demonstrate it for everyone. Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu Omar bin Al Khattab radi Allahu taala and who along with him, and some more of the hygiene in the unsought a few more people
came in with a walker and the owner of the Lego terranova. They stood up in about a couple of lines, a few lines as many could fit within the apartment.
we worked on the Lego children who said the following words I love my Nana shadow,
and who are the Bella OMG de la
ola we testify that the Messenger of God delivered whatever was revealed to him.
When NASA had Illuminati, he advised his followers, which I had a feasibility that he had done hetta as a Lakota Allah Deena who was the motto. He strove in the path of God until God honored and elevate
His Deen and religion and the Word of God was completed
will only be he was the hula Shan econo
and people believed only and solely in Allah once again
further Allah Ilana mittman yet, Poland and even Ziva Morocco
so Allah make us amongst those people who will follow his message as it was revealed to him. What you might have been an hour Vina who
had that too to arafah who Bina were to rv funabashi
and are allowed to reunite us with him
in such a way
that he will be recognized along with us and we will be recognized along with him that we will be together.
for India who can have been winner often rahima.
There are a lot while he was with us in this world. He loved his oma.
He loved his oma he loves the believers.
Land of Jelly Belly Imani button. We will never trade our eemaan for anything. Whether it be feminine. We will not sell our faith for anything.
fearfulness amin, amin, amin as a worker kept saying these statements everyone that was there kept saying I mean, I mean, I mean,
we are June and then they left.
We had to wait.
Another group of people entered in had a salary job. Misha, Suma Silvia.
And in this way, all the men came in
the women were given, then there was a line of sisters line of Sahaba young
women folk, they came in, you know, a group at a time, had the opportunity to stand there, see their sell out to the profits a lobby center, send their salutations upon the profits lobbies, bid him farewell.
And then come in turn by turn. And then even the children,
even the children
and the children were given the same opportunity to come and see saddam and bid farewell to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Furthermore, this procedure sounds when you hear it for the very first time it sounds a little bit, you know, strange, if you will, because this is not how we normally perform janaza but we're talking about the Messenger of Allah sloty Center.
Even Kathy Rahim Allah which Allah writes, however, for anyone who is kind of puzzled by this curious about this, he says, we have a sedan with Serato. And He further let me know
that this method that in which they came and they offered the janaza of the profits a lot so if you will,
our own modular owner and he laughs enough a fee. This is something all the Sahaba agreed on, not a single Sahabi voiced their
reservations or contentions in regards to this. All the Sahaba were comfortable with this.
And furthermore, to understand exactly the reasoning behind it, of course, there are different explanations like I talked about. But the one thing everyone agreed upon, was that this was the best way that was available to them to be able to say their farewells to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
janazah after profits a lot. So if you will,
now came the fourth part of this procedure.
And that was to Now lay the body of the profits a lot of interest
in the ground.
The one thing I should mention before I go forward is,
as I mentioned earlier, the washing of the body of the profits of what he said occurred basically on a Tuesday afternoon.
Monday morning, late morning, he passed away. Monday evening, the baotou, Abu Bakar syndicate or the lack of Toronto began Tuesday, around third time, the big
and he gave his inaugural address. After that, they basically started this
final rites of the prophets allottee center. So this began today
Afternoon, the washing of the body did not take very long.
The techseen, the shrouding of the body of the proselytism did also not take very long. But this third part of the process because everyone wanted their opportunity
to say their farewell to the prophets a lot, etc. This took a very long time.
And this basically continued from Tuesday evening, all throughout Tuesday night, Wednesday morning, Wednesday afternoon, Wednesday evening, and they finally concluded Wednesday night.
Wednesday night, it finally the lines were done.
At that point in time, once the lines were done,
now, implementing the advice of the prophets of Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, now the burial should not be delayed, once it is performed, the burial should not be delayed. And that's why a small technicality, even though as we've done all throughout this series, we don't really go too deep into issues of fit within this series. But the small technicality is, if for whatever reason, there does need to be a delay in someone's janazah, for any technical reasons or anything like that. That's why it's typically recommended by the scholars that the delay should be made before the janaza prayer, delayed the janaza prayer, but try to keep as less time between
digitizer prayer and the burial. So for instance, if there is some legal technicality, there is a legal issue or a safety issue, that you cannot bury the person. Once it's dark outside. Let's say there's a logistical limitation. You cannot bury someone during that time.
And the janazah is finally ready
at a certain time, but you know that after you pray digitized, or go to the graveyard is not going to leave enough time to bury them and it's going to get dark. And then we're gonna have to wait to bury the person till the morning. In that instance, scholars actually recommend don't pray digenova Now,
wait to pray to join us in the morning.
Pray to janazah and then bury immediately. That's where time should not be left between those two things salon and definitely that
So once they have concluded this unique procedure of janazah for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, at this time, they said now even though it's nighttime, they had the they they were capable of doing this, even though it was nighttime. They said we should not delay. And so they buried the profits a lot. He said at night, Wednesday night, the profits along the cinema was laid to rest.
The next there were two discussions now.
The first discussion was where should we bury the profits a lot.
That was the first discussion and there were a number of different thoughts and ideas.
Is that a foo female the ability
for an elephant back here
many people were of the opinion we should bury the profits a lot of them in an agenda to clear the graveyard of Medina. That is right next to the masjid today.
Well in in the memory
it's very the prophets allottee center next to the member the pulpit of the prophets allottee center
and that will just block that area off no one will ever stand there ever again. That's his spot.
where the profits a lot is him used to lead the prayer from this lay him to rest there. Once again with the block that area off. No one's hands ever again.
for Java, radi Allahu Toronto.
Toronto Of course, came once again and he said in the in there in the main hover hover, where element he said I can provide you knowledge and information about this issue directly from the prophets a lot
semiotica Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam airborn ma popiah donabedian illa delphina hypertufa
maccoby donabedian illa Davina heisey to fear.
Whenever a prophet of God passes away they are laid to rest and they are buried. Where did they breathe their last
where their soul departed from their body
In another narration,
it's mentioned that
some of the Sahaba even elaborated on this. They said hey, to cover the larval rule,
where Allah removed his soul from his body, for inner who loves you love lamb Jacobi is the ruha, who in Laffy mcan into heaven,
because a law removes the soul from the body of a prophet in a pure sacred place,
in a pure and sacred place, and that is the place where they should be laid to rest. Furthermore, we also see the wisdom in this because, of course, there was the suggestion of a buck here, which was a logical suggestion. But some of the other suggestions which could have been, you know, argued on behalf of burying him at the place of the member burying him from where he used to lead the prayer. We see though the narration the word the, the advice of the prophets, allottee Center, the bequest of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm about bury me wherever I breathe my last. That is the decree of God. That also coincides with what the prophets a lot he sort of said to his Houma in the hadith of
Bokhari narrated by Chateau de la putana. The prophets a lot of these homes said that semi entourage is a lovely selfie model, the Isla de matar fee of
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Lana La Jolla who the one Massara one of the things that led to the nations of the past the people of the past, being cursed by God was it una ambia him massage Cheetah,
they started to pray at the graves of their profits. They started to pray at the grace of their profits.
And he said that that was a reason for the curse. And, again, there's a lot of discussion and debate. We do not have 100%, of course, confirmation of many of the burial sites of many of the prophets. But some of the places that are believed to be the burial sites of many of the prophets, such as Ali Hassan,
that is in Jerusalem, that is in outputs. You have Ibrahim Ali salam, which is in Medina to Holly, in Philistine and Hebron.
And some of these other sites. When you go to these particular places, you'll see there you'll observe there, that they're oftentimes is kind of like a worshipping at the grave.
Right, they put their head down on the grave, they pray to the grave they write, and that's what the prophets a loved one was talking about. During on his deathbed. It took me a massage into
Canada, and that's why una Ayesha, the mother of the believers, I shadowed the Lakota Nana, she said, Willow Valley Kala abreeza kabru
had that had the profits of lobbyists have not said that the gravesite of the profits, a lot of the sudden would have become the greatest monument anyone has ever seen. They are no Harsha and utakata Machida, the profits allowed his own was fearful, he was afraid.
He was worried
that he did not want people to start worshipping his grave. And so that's why in the profound wisdom of Allah
and the the the wishes of the prophets, a lot of them were that his soul would be removed from his body within the privacy and the confines of his home.
And that he would be laid to rest within there, and that it would it would become closed up and sealed off to the side of the masjid, as it is till today
as it is still today. And that's why the companions of the Prophet talathi setup who notice who knew this religion better than we ever will
and who loved the prophets a lot more than we ever could
and understood the wishes of the prophets a lot better than any of us.
What did they do? At the time of our bill hombre de la Catalano, they expanded the masjid
They expanded mustard forward.
So now that they would now add this because of that, there would actually be a row of worshippers ahead of where the prophets a lot as a tourist, and then earthman bonython radi Allahu taala on who
Another of the Rashidi and companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and son in law, he expanded the machine even more forward.
So that they will not only just be one row of believers, there would be multiple rows of believers in front of the resting place of the messenger of Godzilla lomani, who was
to always designate the fact
that even because the machine had to naturally grow,
and that area of where the profits allowed him was laid to rest what at some point in time become kind of, you know, in the middle of the machine, but there will always be rows of believers ahead of it, the man would step ahead, stand ahead of it, to always signify the fact that we do not pray to the grave of the Prophet somalisa.
We pray to Allah subhanaw taala.
Right, to mark that fact.
So that was the first issue. Where should the prophets Allah be laid to rest? And the answer to that was, of course delivered by aboubaker syndicate or the Allahu taala know, directly from the prophets a lot easier than that wherever he breathed his last, and that was the fringilla, the home of Ayesha radi Allahu taala. And
the second issue, the second issue that came up was, and this is kind of a technical issue.
But there's something very beautiful and poetic about it.
The second issue was that there were two types of graves that they used to dig at that time. One is called a ship.
And the second is called the lat.
The difference between the two, a ship or a saw is basically just a grave that is dug straight down into the ground.
A Grave that is done straight down into the ground.
All right, the body is laid there.
Some planks or stones or boards are put on top of the body, creating kind of a, almost like a coffin internally. And then the dirt is poured on top that's called the ship or itself. The second type of grave is called the lat. Allah had this dug in the way where you dig downward. And then you dig in, you dig sideways a little bit, you create almost like a compartment, you dig down and then off to the side like an L.
Right? That's kind of how we were taught to remember it. l for lahat. Right? So you dig down and then into the side kind of like an O and then that little area that you create on the inside. You place the body there, you put stones there kind of closing off the little compartment and then you fill that area in winter.
These are the two types of graves. in Makkah they used to dig the first type of grave ship. Why because the earth is very tough.
The earth they're around America is very tough, so they would dig straight down.
in Medina, they used to dig the Lucha de L shaped because the soil in Medina was more malleable was easier. So they used to dig this type of agreement.
When the Muslims came to Medina,
this issue came up. This issue came up
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said both are fine
and it was almost kind of a traditional thing. So because of that,
the muhajir on the Moroccan Muslims, they continued to dig the grave straight down like they did in Makkah even though they weren't Medina when el Bahia and the Medina and Muslims continued to dig their graves I can that L shape.
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said both are okay.
When it came to the grave of the prophets, a lot of them now they knew when they had to dig they said what kind of a grave should we dig?
What kind of grave every day? What is more befitting the messengers Elisa? abas, the uncle of the prophets a lot he said there were two people that usually you see dig the graves there for the Muslims in Medina, Abu Zubaydah imager, you said arrange for the graves of the Mahajan. And there was an unsavoury companion, who used to dig the graves for the unsolved.
So I've asked about the Lakota unima while some of the Sahaba were still discussing, what kind of a grave should we dig a bus or the Allahu taala who said go get both of them.
Go get both of them. Call both
For aq Houma seven
for you must to be entrepreneur. He said Whoever gets here first that's the grave that will dig.
And it just so happened that the unsavoury got there before
the Ansari got their first. And when you walked in, they said us That's it, dig the grave, and he started digging into Bismillah once we started now let's do it.
And the reason why I was saying that it was very beautiful and very poetic was because
the grave of the profits along the salon
is not only in Medina, but the grave of the prophets a lot ism was dug the way the graves of Medina and people were dug
the grave of the prophets, a lot of them were shaped like the graves of the people of Medina.
keeping his promise till the very last day that he was born American. He grew up in Makkah, he received revelation in Makkah, he struggled in Makkah.
But once he made his return Medina he promised the Medina and people I will always come home to you.
I will always come home to you.
I am one of you.
Lola hegira to look into him Ramadan.
Had it not been for Hitler had I not been born in Makkah, I would have been in I'm sorry. I am a Medina and at heart.
And the grave of the prophets of Madison was dug as the graves of the people of Medina were done. to the very end the prophets a lot he was loyal to the people of Medina.
The last couple of things that are mentioned here is after the death, the grave of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
and they laid his body to rest.
If you've ever participated in burial, someone has to get down in the grave to lower the body down.
Dean Abdullah busca de La Cucina Anima says that three people or four people excuse me,
or excuse me, five people, because you mentioned seven separately, five people got down in the grave of the profits a lot. So
three of them were family
benefit or their father in
Right algebra taught me the two sons about bass, they got down in the grave. The fourth person who got down in the grave had to help dig the grave.
His name was super on us a freed slave.
And the fifth person who got down in the grave was the one who ducked the grave, also the holy
O's of the holy hell, I'm sorry, he had ducked the grave. So these five people got down and they laid to rest the body of the profits a lot.
After the dirt was filled up in the grave,
after the dirt was filled up in the grave, veneration says that summer two blues a rotting Allahu taala, on who
he took some water. And this is a practice that they would do to make sure that the dirt would not like kind of, you will not be too dusty. To make the dirt dust settle, what they would do is they would take water and they would spray it on the grave.
And so they sprayed some of the Allahu talanoa sprayed the water on the grave. And then a little bit of the water that was left. This was all from the window laughs a little bit of the water that was left he kind of he put it on the wall inside the home to cool down the walls and again settled the desk down.
The last thing is that the last two things rather is there was
that occurred later on some time after the passing of the profits. allottee some someone asked who was the last person to be with the profits a lot. He said
who's the last person to be with the profits.
So they said there were five people who got down in the grave. The five that we had named three family members and the two who had helped dig the grave. They all got out the last person to climb out of the grave was even on a bass put on a purpose because of of the profits or losses. However, Molina been sure about who is the bodyguard of the profits allowed him throughout his life
when they would travel on the on the exit
traditions of the hudway he would guard the prophets a lot.
Robin Sharma has a narration he says that when they all got out of the grave before they started filling dirt into it, he said I was wearing a ring.
And I pretended like I was trying to scoop up dirt and throw some dirt into the grave. And on purpose I kind of made my ring loose. And I tossed it into the grave.
And then I said, Oh, no, no, no, I dropped my ring, I dropped my ring into the grave. And before anyone could say anything, he said, I jumped down into the grave to get my ring.
And while I was getting my ring, I reached out with my hand and I touched the foot of the prophets a lot
to touch him one last time.
And I touched the foot of the Prophet system, and then I climbed out of the grave. And that's why I've been as Hawk mentioned that Robin Sharma always used to claim that he was the last person to physically be with the profits a lot. So
lastly, and finally,
as we had talked about previously, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was laid to rest.
The home of Chateau de Lago Telangana was the grave site of the profits along the center.
When Abu Bakar the Lockwood Shanahan who passed away
he asked to be buried by the side of the prophets alavesa.
Shadow the Allahu taala and he gave permission. She no longer live there, but just because it was her apartment. Of course it was her father she gave permission abubaker the local salon who, in the direction of the Qibla he was laid to rest behind the profits a lot he said, with his head, in line with the chest of the profits a lot.
So behind the profits a lot, a little bit back.
A little bit downward behind him. He was laid to rest there.
When are below katapola, the Allahu taala and who passed away. He also requested permission to be buried along with the profits lobby similar Abu Bakar shadow the Allahu taala and once again gave permission
and Ahmadi Allahu taala, who was laid to rest behind Abubakar acidic radi Allahu taala. A little bit downward.
So behind him a little bit down towards his chest. And what that ended up doing was that the head of Amaro the Allahu tanaan, who is in line with the knees of the prophets a lot, so
it's the prophets a lot behind him a little bit down. And then Armando the Allahu tadano, behind both of them a little bit down. So his head is in line with the knees of the profits a lot behind him.
When I shot on the local Jelena was on her deathbed.
Someone asked her that, what about you? Where would you like to be buried,
and I shall have the Allahu taala on Ha. She said that bury me,
along with all my friends.
Right? And she was referring to all the other mothers of the believers, bury me with all my friends, in
bury me with all my friends in a book. And so she was laid to rest in genital area, along with the other mothers of the believers plodding along with each other on edge Mary.
Finally, when it comes to the grave site of the prophets of Allah, Allah, he was not going to get into a lot of detail here. But very briefly, for a long time, the great side of the prophets a lot he said was that apartment of Chateau de la creme de la, of course, as you would expect, it was very respected by the early believers.
In the narrations of Bahati, many of the top of your own mentioned, they had the opportunity to see the resting place of the prophets a lot ecnl glance into the home of a shop. It was not nothing was constructed or built there. It was just like a mound of dirt, Musandam and kind of like a hump, like a mound of dirt. And that was simply what marked the grave of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
It was not until
it was not until the time of Allah
ulead Abdul Malik
al Walid bin Malik
that the walls of the apartment of Aki shadow the Allahu taala. And I became very weak and started to crumble.
And they were afraid that they were going to crumble and fall on the graves.
So at that time, that was the first instance, that
four walls were built around the resting place of the prophets, a lot of what we know now as the prophetic chamber, which ended up including the home of Arusha, they ended up including within that right behind there, the home of Fatima. And in front and inside a little bit of the area of the masjid, they took up all that area, they put four walls, they ended up putting a dome on top of it, and they sealed it off.
They sealed it off. From that point on forward, there's been more Building and Construction around it.
But that area has remained basically sealed off.
And no one goes in there. No one has been in there.
For the sake of the sanctity of the resting place of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
We conclude here, and I wanted to
mention something that is very, you know,
it's very painful to hear. But after the laid the body of the profits, a lot of interest and asked about the Allahu taala. And he says when we were returning back from the burial of the prophets, Lottie, saddam, Fatima, the Allahu taala, and how they right behind there.
And he says what I was leaving from the burial of the prophets a lot, he said, I'm in the middle of the night on Wednesday, farty model, the Allahu taala on how we're standing at her door. And she saw me, and she saw the dust on my hands.
And she said, I thought, yeah, and as
your anus. I was like a child who grew up in their home.
I thought, but fusuma and Da, da, da,
you, you, you feel good about yourself. You put dirt on the messengers, you feel good about yourself.
It's a very difficult moment,
the greatest of tragedies.
But nevertheless, we see that the legacy of the prophets allottee Center. Suffice it to say
that 1400 years later, halfway across the world,
there's a group of people gathered in a room talking about the life of the Prophet ceylonese.
That's the legacy of the prophets a lot.
That's the everlasting legacy of Rasul Allah.
And that's why we gathered.
we learn, we pray, we live our life. We live our lives the way that he taught us to.
And that's the greatest testament of love for the prophets a lot.
That's the greatest thing we can do.
together to carry on the work of the prophets a lot easier to carry on the message of the prophets a lot easier
to remember the advice that he gave us, what did he want us to do? I live in the Golan who says he could barely talk. The day before he passed away. He could barely talk. So much so that he wasn't even saying it. He was mumbling and he was like, grunting it
from inside of his throat.
And what was he saying a salatu salam, O harmonica de mano,
and be good to be.
Don't don't don't take people for granted.
That's the legacy of
this effort of ours to try to study the life of the prophet to share the life of the profits a lot.
This is a very, very humble effort to remind ourselves
about what our responsibility is.
To live up to his legacy to fulfill what he asked us to do, and to try to live our lives like him to try to share the guidance that he brought and he sacrificed so much for
This is all in an effort to just try to be more like the prophets Allah.
May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to know that the prophet may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to love the prophets of Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to be more like the prophets Eliza, may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to spread the life of the prophets Alonso And may Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to continue to learn and to study and to benefit from the life of the prophets Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us the dignity and the honor to be called oma T's and followers of the prophets Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment, allow us to be recognized by the prophets Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to place
on the Day of Judgment under the shade of law with the prophets of Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to drink the water of the fountain of COVID from the hands of the prophets Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala make us from amongst those for whom the prophets Allah dissemble intercede May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to benefit and to enjoy the company of the prophets allottee some in the life of the hereafter in Jonathan for those in Allah, Europa, Allah mean, we
have a long way to go. To do right by the prophets a lot is having to do right by his life.
But nevertheless, everything began somewhere, everything starts somewhere.
And we should make an intention. One of our teachers who passed away who taught us a lot about the life of the prophets a lot. So he always used to say that every single moment, every single opportunity is an opportunity. Every single moment is an opportunity. We make Toba now, we repent to Allah now.
We decide to do better from now.
We will do better from now. Not even tomorrow morning, not even later tonight from now.
That when we stand and we pray to Allah now.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide us to be better.
And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide us to do better. I mean,
does that come along later on?
Just a very quick note, I know that there's a lot of folks with this here and many of the locals that are here with us as well. But
this is a series that we started about eight years ago,
almost about eight years ago, I think it was the it was August of 2011. And kundala. We continued on through, there's many folks who listen
to the recordings afterwards, as well. So
it's a blessing of Allah that we were able to reach this point of completion. But completion is a funny word, because it gives you a sense of accomplishment. All we did was finish one round of study.
But study is something that always continues. And secondly, and more importantly,
what we've just started, is actually living this message, and actually living in accordance with the Sunnah of the profits. So whenever we talk about completion of things,
I'm always very weary of it. It makes me very nervous talking about completions.
Because I'm weary of it because I don't want to delude myself into thinking that somehow I'm done.
I've achieved something.
We achieve something by living.
And we achieve something by finally meeting the profits a lot easier on the Day of Judgment. That's when we've achieved something. And meanwhile, we got a lot of work to do. So I appreciate everybody listening. And so there's I definitely want to acknowledge that. But I do want to just share with you my own concern for myself. And that is never, we're never done. We always have work to do. We have lost power accent.
So Hanalei. We have the use of Haleakala bionic, national en la ilaha illa. Suffer governance
