Since yesterday there has been one item that has dominated the news, as you all know, that has been the passing of the Queen. And I think that it is important for us as Muslims to know how to respond in these types of situations. When major events like this occur, what is what does our religion say in terms of the way that we react and the way that we behave? Because from time to time people pass away and sometimes those people they did a lot of good. They stood up for the rights of people they stood against oppression, they stood up for the poor and the needy, but they will not Muslim. So what is our religion say? Five Points of five principles that I want to lay before you inshallah
Tada in this brief time that we have before us today. The first of those points and the greatest and most important of them is that whenever anyone passes away but especially someone who passes away after having lived for nearly a century, one of the greatest lessons that we can take is that it should fortify and strengthen our to hidden ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada because from the greatest themes of Allah azza wa jal and from his greatest attributes Subhana wa Tada is that he is ever living and hate. And when Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned to us the greatest verse of the Quran AYATUL kursi. Allah subhanaw taala begins that very verse with this name of allah Hi,
Allahu La ilaha illa who Allah Europa Yom Allah none has the right to be worshipped except him. He is the EverLiving the self sufficient Subhana wa Taala and that is because every other name of Allah azza wa jal and every other attribute of Allah subhana wa Tada. It comes back to this name of Allah that Allah is Ever Living. Because God cannot be all knowing and all seeing and all hearing and all powerful and all merciful, except if he is ever living Subhana wa Tada and that is why Allah azza wa jal in the Quran, when He speaks to us and he tells us and commanded us to have the hidden him to call upon Him to make dua to him. subhanaw taala to have your class and sincerity and I will worship
of Him. This is the name that he uses in the Quran, who will hate you?
For the rule whom? Allah Who Deen he is ill Hey, the EverLiving none has the right to be worshipped except him. So worship Him alone and make your religions and see for him. Allah subhanaw taala says elsewhere in the Quran will tell Raquel I will how you lead Elijah moot will be handy. Please So trust in Allah hey the Ever Living the one who never dies, and glorify and praise Him. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would say in the dirt that he would make until how you lay the law your mood, will Jin know will ensue your Mattoon you are Allah the EverLiving the one who never dies, and every other human and if we Jin will die. Allah subhanaw taala says to us no
Quran, Quran lumen Allah, you have fun. Everything in this world, everything in this universe will cease to exist. We have our job because God will come but the feasts of your Lord full of nobility and honor will remain. Allah subhanaw taala is all powerful. And no matter how long or short a person's life is, no matter if you live for 10 years or for 100 years, you will certainly die at one point or another. Your time will come to an end. But the Lord that we worship, the Lord upon whom we trust, the Lord that we devote our our whole lives to, is the Lord subhanaw taala that never dies. And from the meanings of the Name of Allah azza wa jal, he is that his life is perfect and complete
in every way, shape and form Subhana wa Tada, me and you we may live for over 100 years, but many of those years will be years of illness. years of pain is where we can't. We can't go back in our daily lives in the way that we want. But when Allah subhanaw taala said hey, his life is perfect, perfect Subhana wa Tada. It is complete in every way. Allah azza wa jal doesn't become
Tired, Allah subhanaw taala doesn't feel pain, Allah azza wa jal doesn't become sick or weak Subhana wa Tada. Allah azza wa jal is perfection in every way. So when you hear of someone who lived for nearly a century, one of the things that he should always make us do is to remember the the completeness and the perfection of our Lord and Creator Subhana wa Tada, we should strengthen and fortify our Tawheed and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada that each and every single one of us will stand before him, Jehovah, and that each and every single one of us will be held to account. That's the first point that I wanted to mention before you today. The second point that I wanted to mention to you is
that it is from the RP that Islam from the creator of every Muslim, that only the people of Iman and to intergender and everyone who doesn't accept Eman goes into the file. That is a principle that is established in the Quran and the Sunnah and multiple narrations and it is one of the cornerstones of our religion. Me and You we worship Allah azza wa jal and we travel utmost to obey Him Subhana wa Tada because of this principle, Allah azza wa jal says in hola hola Yaga filled with a huge rock Hebei, while your daddy kadhimiya Sha. Allah doesn't forgive any type of ship that is associated with him Subhana wa Tada. But he forgives everything else true so ever. He wills, gentle fer Allah.
The person was Eman, and he sins and He does evil. There is hope for that person because they have Iman, but the person who doesn't have Eman the person who doesn't believe in Allah azza wa jal, Allah subhanaw taala gives to them in this life, the reward that they would have got from the good character, and from the good that they did, and the help that they offered to others, but they have no portion of the hereafter. That is part of our Eman. And part of that principle is therefore that it is not permissible to seek forgiveness for those who do not die upon Islam. It's not allowed for you to seek forgiveness for someone who died upon other than Islam McAnally maybe you're living in
Manu, and you're stuck fueling Mushrikeen what Oh, can we
mean by the matter but you and Allah whom anonymous herbal Jain Allah says there is not befitting for the Prophet, or for the believers that they should seek forgiveness for the disbelievers after it has become clear and apparent to them that they are from the people of the fire, and Modi to have been allowed for anyone to seek forgiveness for someone who died upon other than Eman then it would have been allowed for our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In the hadith of Abu Huraira Radi Allahu uncollected and Sunni Muslim. He said, I saw permission from my Lord, that I should go and visit the grave of my mother. And I sought permission from my Lord, that I should seek forgiveness
for her. So as for visiting her grave, He gave me permission to do so. But as for seeking forgiveness for her, he refused. So if anyone would have been allowed to do so would have been the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and not just for any and every person for his own mother, the person who gave birth to him, but that is the principle that Allah azza wa jal has established upon this religion.
The third point that is also an extension of the second point is that once we've established that principle, that the people of Jana the people of Eman and the people of the fire the people of other than Eman the NIV is not also befitting or proper or correct, according to many of the scholars that we see about any individual that they are from the people of general from the people of the fire, unless there is an explicit text in the book of Allah or the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, me and you we can see that Abu Bakr is in Jannah Rama is in Jana Ross man is in Jana Ali is in Jana, Radi Allahu Anhu among others from amongst the Companions, because there are explicit
texts in the Quran and Sunnah that testify to that. Me and you we can stand there we can see Abu Lahab is in the fire. Abu Jamal is in the fire round is in the fire. Because there are texts in the Quran and the Sunnah, that specifically say that very thin brass for everyone else is not befitting for me or you to stand here and to say about myself or yourself that we are from the people of Ghana. We hope good for the people of Eman, someone dies upon his time, yes Allah to forgive them and have mercy upon them. And we hope and pray that they will be from the people of Jana, but to name someone and say so and so is from the people of the of Jana. That's not from the position of
the Muslim. And there are a number of a hadith of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when some of the companions will make such a testimony, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will say no, rather, he's from the people of the fire. And you only need to open up the books of Hadith Bukhari Muslim, and look at the chapters of Mikaze of battles and war where some of the Companions would see someone because of his courage and bravery is from the people of Jana. And the profit center would say no is not. And it shows to you you can't make that just even based upon someone's apparent actions. You can't make that declaration. And just as you can't make that declaration for a
Muslim, then you shouldn't make that declaration for a specific person from the non Muslims. You make the general ruling. As for someone specifically by name, that refers with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Allah is the one who judges and Allah azza wa jal didn't make it incumbent upon me or upon us, not my responsibility or yours, to name people and place them i
into the fire or into paradise, that is Allah's Providence Alon Subhana wa Tada. We make the general rule because that is what Allah azza wa jal has mentioned to us in the Quran and the Sunnah, specifically, that is for Allah subhanaw taala. To do. The fourth point is that just because someone may be a non Muslim, it doesn't mean that you can't acknowledge the good that they did. Someone stood up for the rights of the poor, someone stood up and he helped the oppressed, someone stood up and they did good for the general community and for the general people. It is from good character, and from justice in our religion, that you acknowledge those people, even if those people want a
Muslim, to say that someone did good, how people did a lot of good, and they died upon that that's something which you can testify to. It's something which you can speak about and acknowledge, because it's something which all of the people have acknowledged besides us, and besides yourself as well. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did the same. In the Hadith, in the Muslim why Muhammad, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about some of the good characteristics that the bison tin Romans used to have. He's to say about them that they have four characteristics that are praiseworthy, from amongst those characteristics was that they would help the poor and the needy
in the community, someone who's poor, someone who's needy, they will look after them. And from those characteristics, is that a form amongst the nobility and they're powerful, someone wants you to commit oppression, they will stop that oppression from taking place. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praised them for those characteristics and they want to Muslims in the time of the prophets on Allah while he was sent him they lived a man by the name of a Lutheran YBNL ID. His son Joe Babybel Radi Allahu Anhu was one of the companions of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but his father and multimillionaire ID was from the leaders of the Arabs, but he died as a non
Muslim. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam honored him and acknowledged the good that he did for Islam and the Muslims. This is the acknowledge the good that His own uncle Abu Talib did, even though he also died upon other than Islam, and wanting people to ID when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned from five when the people of five stoned him and they drove him out of a tie with those pebbles and those stones and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had blood flowing through his body. It was an Multimap no idea who came and he ensured safety for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returning into Mecca. He said, I will be your guarantor, I will be the
one who will give you safety as you return into the city of Mecca. And when the people of Quraysh did that social boycott that economic and social boycott against the Muslims and against the tribe of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam been Hashem, I don't know, McCallum, they said that we won't marry you. You can't have business with us. You can't live with us. And they had to go and live in the desert outside on the outskirts of Mecca. And they wrote up a pack that they placed inside of the karma to show that they weren't going to have anything to do with those people who were Muslims. When some of the people of Malaysia and the Arabs they saw the oppression that was
being committed, they went and they stop that oppression from taking place. It took a while to time, but eventually they stood up against that oppression and and what they mean and what it was one of those people who went and he tore up the pact that was written in the Kaaba, the prophets of Allah while he was sending him a number of years later, the Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari a number of years later, in the Battle of Buddle, after the battle had finished on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had all of these prisoners of war Mexicans who were enemy combatants, and now they are prisoners of war. The Prophet said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if multimillionaire ID was still
alive today. And he spoke to me and told me to free these people, I would free them for him. Freedom for him, acknowledging the good that he did, acknowledging the favor that he had upon the Muslims acknowledging that he stood up against the oppression that was being committed against the Muslims. So to acknowledge someone's good to acknowledge that someone did something which is beneficial, it is something which is from justice and it is something which is from good character, as Allah subhanaw taala that he blesses us all with Eman, us and our families and our children and that Allah azza wa jal mixes from amongst those people who live upon Eman and die upon Eman and are resurrected
with the people of Eman BarakAllahu. Li were looking for Quran he was sunnah whenever any way I can be my female it will take me a political Jihad that was stuck with Allah He welcome. What did you mean Muslim equilibrium InfraStop Pharaoh in the whole of Orion.
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah whether earlier he was talking to a woman whether we'll send them at the Sleeman cathedra, a MOBA, the fifth and final point that I want to mention to insha Allah to others, we conclude this footbath is the importance of remembering death.
Death is something which will approach each and every single one of us and someone may live for 100 years but as we know, as our Prophet told us on Allah, Allah, Allah he will send them from the moment that the angel came and he breathed life into them as they were in the womb of their mother. He was commanded to write four things. And from amongst those four things that he was commanded to write the angel was commanded to write is the Agile the lifespan of each and every single
When one of us and when that lifespan comes to an end, whether it be short or whether it be long, whether it be a life full of ease or a life full of difficulty, whether you live a life of witches or a life of poverty, when that moment in that time comes, it is not advanced, modulated by a single moment, for either
you're stuck the moon, when the appointed time comes, it has not been bought, brought forth by a moment. Notice it delayed by a single moment. Each and every single one of us is upon a journey towards our grave, and towards what is inevitable in terms of death. How will you prepare for that journey? That is something which Allah subhanaw taala wants from each and every single one of us. What Allah azza wa jal commanded us to do to prepare for that time, to the best of your ability by worshipping Allah azza wa jal and having a man in him by doing this many good deeds as you can do and by staying away from the Haram by helping those who are in need, and by staying away from all
types and forms of oppression as Allah subhanaw taala on this specific day will Juwan that Allah subhanaw taala blesses us with iman, and that Allah azza wa jal makes a steadfast upon his religion, us and our families and our children. And that Allah subhanaw taala honors us with Eman Allah whom have you believed that the man was the unit of Alumina?
