There is a Hadith that upon obey the law obey Allahu Anhu narrated and he said analogy ladymum belly Kadima Allah rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. What can Islam Muhammad Jamia on Harbin obey the law hold the Allahu Anhu. He says that were two men from the town of Billy the town of Belize a town close to El Medina. But the mera Rasulillah. They both approached the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the same time, and they were two Jews, and they embraced Islam and said a shadow Allah ilaha illallah wa know Muhammad Rasool Allah. Now these two have accepted Islam at the same time. One of them had more effort in Islam than the other. So his effort were to the point that he

00:00:46--> 00:01:13

joined one of the battles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and other Allah that he passed away as a Shaheed, he earned a shahada visa vie de la so he was martyred. His friend that accepted Islam at the same time lived to witness another ye a full Gi. And after one year, he died, natural causes on his deathbed, Allah subhanho wa Taala took his soul

00:01:14--> 00:02:01

then had been obey the law of the Allahu Anhu. After these two have died, one night he was sleeping, he had a dream. In his dream he saw himself and these two people, these two companions standing outside the door of the Paradise, and an angel comes and he calls the one who died one year later, you know, the one who just died on his bed natural death. He was called into the paradise first, but haven't obey the law. He's there he can see this in the dream. So he was called in and admitted to the paradise first. And then the angel came out. And he called the one who was martyred visa vie de la. And he was admitted into the paradise second. And then the angel came and he said to Paul had

00:02:01--> 00:02:07

been Obaidullah you go back, it's not your time yet because you're still alive. Then you woke up from his dream.

00:02:08--> 00:02:49

And he was amazed so he went around the medina informing the people what he saw and the people were amazed with him as well. What is surprising in the Hadith that how could this person who died naturally enter the paradise first, before a Shaheed visa vie Allah? And I know we all know what special gifts Allah azza wa jal gives gives a Shaheed How can this person who died on his bed naturally enter the paradise before shaheed? And so some people would think you know, what's the big deal at the end of the day, they both entered the paradise. There's always a big deal about the one who comes first in something. You know, in school, the majority of the class passes the exam, but

00:02:49--> 00:03:28

it's always about who came first. So that he gets the medal who came first in the race, he gets the medal, the one who's first to buy the new new product of Apple, or Samsung is the one who's first to buy the product. He's the one who's interviewed, and he's the one who's asked and he's given a special earning and a rank among the people. So there's always something special about coming first in something. So he this man entered the paradise first the Sahaba see it as a big deal. So they ended up going going to law school allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they narrated this dream unto him, when the the sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw the amazement on their face. And he said to

00:03:28--> 00:03:35

them, I mean he there Lika Tasha Boone, what are you surprised? What are you all amazed by?

00:03:36--> 00:03:59

So they sit to him obviously how they this person enter before shade for Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, Elisa could MacArthur hair that by the husana Didn't the one who died naturally? Live one more year after shaheed? They said yes. So then he said what are the raka Ramadan for Salah Kava Kava.

00:04:00--> 00:04:47

And didn't he also during that one year that he lived extra? He witnessed the month of Ramadan and he prayed this and this amount of regard and such depth in his life more than the Shaheed they said yes, aerosol Hola, familia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said from Ebay you know who Matt about to me Medina Sama, it will help. He said that the distance between him and the Shaheed is the distance between the heavens and the earth. That's the kind of rank this man earned in the Paradise because he lived one year more than his friend to witness Ramadan and to praise such and such amount of archived and shoot for Allah subhanho wa Taala when Hadith and it is in heaven measure or Emma Hola.

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

So the idea is we're learning from this hadith, that it is a golden opportunity whenever Allah subhanho wa Taala gives life for a person to live and to witness yet another Ramadan. You

00:05:00--> 00:05:28

No, this is an opportunity that you may be elevated ranks with Allah subhanho wa taala. When he said Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, let you say Oh, hold on AF Bala and Allah He may mean in your umber of Islam, Yak Furuta Spirou what that could be who what I mean, who, what, who, and maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam you said, there is no one better than a believer who links who lives along the life. And this life is full of the spear to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:30--> 00:05:56

ruler Ilaha illa Allah and His life is full of vigor and worship to Allah subhanho wa taala. It is a blessing. The hadith is teaching us that it is a blessing to witness another Ramadan in your life. We ask Allah azza wa jal to give us live to witness Ramadan and to give us the ability and the strength that we worship him during Ramadan.
