There is a Hadith that Paul Harbin obey the law of the Allahu Anhu narrated and he said a narrow Julie Nieman belly Kadima Allah rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. What can Islam Houma Jamia on haben obey the law the Allahu Anhu. He says that were two men from the town of belly. The town of barley is a town close to Almudena, but the man 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 chateau La ilaha illallah wa no Muhammad Allah 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

00:00:45--> 00:01:13

the point that he 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 feasibility law, so he was martyred. His friend that accepted Islam at the same time lived to witness another ie 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

and had been obey the law, 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 had been 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 mandatory Sevilla. And he was admitted into the paradise second. And then the angel came and he said to Pearl Harbor and obey

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

the law, 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 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 Shaheed feasts Avila 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 it's

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

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, 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. So how to see it as a big deal. So they ended up going and going to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they narrated this dream unto Him. When the diesel Allahu alayhi wa sallam saw the amazement on their face. And he said to

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

them, mean au their Leka 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 mecca for hair. They're bad 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 local Ramadan for Salah together

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

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 Raka and says that in his life more than the Shaheed they said yes rasool Allah for NaVi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said family obey you know whom at a bar to me Medina summer he will. 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 our carrot and suit for Allah subhanho wa Taala when Hadith and it is in heaven measure aroma hula. So the idea

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

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--> 00:05:15

No this is an opportunity that you may be elevated ranks with Allah subhanho wa Taala when the ISA Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said Lisa how on earth Bala in the law him in many number of Islam yet Furuta spear who would be

00:05:17--> 00:05:56

who and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, There is no one better than a believer who lives who lives a long life. And this life is full of the Spirit to Allah subhanho wa Taala with me to take the ruler, Allah and His life is full of vicar and worship to Allah subhanho wa Taala for it is a blessing. That 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 life to witness Ramadan and to give us the ability and the strength that we worship him during Ramadan. We need to first recognize and acknowledge that this is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala
