My bad. So begin in sha Allah today with a question I received last time and I thought let me try to answer it in case it kind of brought any confusion and for further clarification in sha Allah.
The question was about the consequences that we mentioned about the belief of or in the creation of the Quran the erroneous belief in the creation of the Quran? And what are some of the consequences that may follow from that and why that belief is dangerous. So we said that one of the consequences of you remember is that it downgrades the authority of the Quran so after hearing or knowing that the Quran is the actual literal word of Allah has Zoda that Allah spoke it and he is dead every letter and every word as is to hear that it's simply the meaning and that the letter comes from the Prophets a lot is in them or Gibreel or that is basically created. We said that it downgrades the
authority of the Quran and we also said that it may open the door and again I said it may open the door for people to claim that the spirit is different than the letter or the meaning is different than the letter. So that as I said, is a dangerous consequence of it. So the question came as to does this then apply to the Sunnah because the Sunnah is revealed from Allah azza wa jal to the prophets Allah Allah wa salam, but the words are the words of who the prophets Allah listen and so does this apply to the Sunnah as well. So I think the question was like, If we say that the Quran is only in meaning, and according to that erroneous belief, again, from the Quran, and that kind of
could compromise its authority that way, how about the Sunnah as well? Does this apply to the Sunnah? And the simple answer is no, it doesn't. For the following simple reason without us you know,
investigating this matter beyond what is needed, is to say, when the Quran when you consider the Quran is the pivotal primary book of Islam is what the book of Allah as is, that is the continuous miracle that every generation of every person encounters that miracle. When they read the Quran at three affirms to them every time that they read it. That Rasul Allah He Salatu was Salam is the messenger of Allah azza wa jal, right so that the greatest miracle of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam is the Quran, everything hell else hinges on it, including the Sunnah. So the Quran when you establish the Quran, the Quran establishes what the Sunnah. So the authority of the Sunnah rests on
the authority of the Quran, especially for later generations, versus the earlier generations. So the early generations imagine the early Sahaba didn't have much of the Quran when they accepted Islam, right, but they could see what a sort of Allah is allottee was set them at they could hear him, they could also understand his message, but they didn't have the authority of the Quran right there for them to read and judge and analyze. later generations. It's not the scene because you don't have Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in the midst but what do you have? The Quran? So what is the most effective book that you give out in Dawa?
Is the book of Allah azza wa jal right and then it goes to affirm everything else. So that's the cornerstone of Islam is the book of Allah azza wa jal. So if you downgrade the authority of the Quran, the Sunnah suffers as well. Right? If you establish the Quran as the word of Allah azza wa jal, the actual literal word of Allah azza wa jal, it goes on to establish the authority of the Sunnah itself.
So the idea that we mentioned when Allah azza wa jal says about the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were my young tick or Anil Hawa in Hua Illa, who knew her, he does not speak of his Hauer of his desire, it is but what a revelation that is given to him. So when Allah azza wa jal here in that area, we say Allah spoke that, precisely, he said this, what is this? I mean, this ame is that when the prophets of Allah Sydenham speaks to a million people, so it negates that when he speaks, he does not speak of how a how a desire meaning of his own likes and dislikes, he does not speak of his own and from his own, but it is what ye so here the reference is to what in who it is, but a
revelation. So in the Tafseer, they say one group of them have a setting, they say This is in reference to the Quran, because that's the main thing that he brought to them. And they were denying that it is divine. So Allah is really saying that he's not speaking of his
own desire, the Quran that he's bringing is what a revelation. Others have said no it's doesn't only refer to the Quran because in the sequence of the eyes when you read there is no mention of the Quran when that you either have a mouth Allah Sahiba Komazawa Wilma young tickle Anil Hawa, in Hua Allahu you have so there is no mention of the Quran so who are here? In Hua it is but what is this it? They they say it refers to what the Prophet says in Hua meaning in not cohoe Ma Yun Kobe he what he what he says which covers what
the Sunnah covers the sun. So it's the Quran, but it covers also the Sunnah, because we didn't we weren't really not talking about the Quran specifically here to say only the Quran it covers the Sunnah, right? So in fact the ISA is that whatever he says, in calling to Allah as though did his what?
Revealed. So here Allah zoodle is attesting to the prophets Allah Allah wa salam that he is speaking from Allah azza wa jal. So here can you trust the prophets Allah Allah wa salams Reliance or how he relays the meaning that Allah had given to him? Do you trust that? Yes, because who had affirmed that it is worthy of confidence? Allah xuejun Right. So when Allah says we're in Nicola de la Surat and Mr. Team, you guide to a straight path, that is an approval from Allah azza wa jal that what you're saying is guidance that what I gave you, you feel you completely
conveyed, right? Completely as should be conveyed without the addition or subtraction. So that's why when we say that,
if the Quran is the word of Allah azza wa jal Once that is established, you must have the Sunnah that follows and that opinion by the way that were my young declining however in Hawaii Allah He knew her covers the Sunnah as well you can find him affirming that and even before that, a chef a and others that say that covers the Sunnah, and that is an evidence that the Sunnah is revelation from Allah azza wa jal, it comes in meaning from him. subhanho wa taala. And also then all prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam expresses it. There's another type of sunnah, by the way, just kind of to give a full answer. Another type of sunnah where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam makes an HD had he
decides on his own this or that? But the see that is also what Revelation says, Why is that to the prophets, Allah Selim did not receive direct command do this or that he decided do this or that they see that is also revelation. Who knows why that is also revelation.
Because if it was wrong, what would happen?
Who would be Archaea would be corrected, right? So if it was wrong, Allah would say what? No, right? No. So if it is if Allah lets it go, then it means what he approves it. So that also becomes revelation as well. So there is the Sunnah of clearly the if Allah azza wa jal ACARA. Who he allows this, and let's hit go It means he agrees with with the Prophets Allah, Allah Allah is Allah has done what I said. And you have few examples in the Quran where the Allah azza wa jal what tells us prophets, Allah, listen, what did you do it this way? Right? Why did you do it this way? It means that everything else is what? That's okay. Except these things, right? Otherwise, everything else is
okay. So everything else takes the status of revelation whether we say, Allah revealed it as is. And there's examples like that, you know, where somebody would come to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he asks him a question. And he says, wait a little bit, and he would set Jabril Alison, I'm just told me, right? Or he would say, wait a little bit. And then he will sit at a Salatu was Salam and they could see the signs of receiving revelations on him. He would sweat Salatu was Salam, right? And it will be like a sound around him that we naturally like, like bees around his face, you know, the sound that bees makes around this way. It's like that. And then he would come out of this and he
says, Allah has told me this and that. So there are clear, a hadith that says that show that the prophets Allah Allah will send them was sitting as he was receiving the Quran, like they could notice that there's something different that happens when he receives the Quran, the same state, you know, happens to him when he hears the Sunnah and then he tells people, Allah told me this, right? So there's clear signs that the Sunnah is Revelation. So whether we say it's that or were the prophets Allah you Salam said something of Allah approved it. Both of these things are sunnah, and both of these things are revelation.
So that's that's an answer to that question. I hope Insha Allah, that that kind of satisfies that. The last thing we talked about was when we talked about Amazon, the scale that is going to exist on the day of judgment. And we mentioned that several things will be weighed, if you remember, right, what gets put on the scale, right? On the pounds of the scale or on the hands of the scale. So we said, your deeds, the deeds will be weighed, the records would be weighed, and the person himself or herself will be weighed, we said these three things, because we have evidence that this and that, and this all will be included. So we say, well, Allahu Allah, all of them, below Adam, all of them.
Now, we talked about the scale. And one of the things that I may or may not mentioned about the scale, is that how big it is, we'll say Allahu Allah, that there is now there is the chance that the magnitude of the scale is so big, that it could include the heavens and the earth in it, it could actually fit the heavens and the earth in it. I say it's a possibility. It's a possibility. We say why is that? Because there's a Hadith from Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that he said that if the heavens and the earth were in a Kapha of the MISA in one pan of the scale, and the Illa, Allah who was on the other law, Ada, hey Allah, who would be what? Heavier. So Allahu Adam is talking about
that particular scale or is using an analogy, Allahu Allah, so that we said that there is a possibility that it would be that big or that all of this could fit in this scale, a possibility.
Now, before we move on from talking about the scale that will be on the day of judgment, and as we said, it's a real thing. Right. So it's not symbolic of Allah's justice, it's an actual thing that Allah creates, and that will weigh people's good deeds and bad deeds, what is a fruit of that belief, and once you believe in it, and you have to believe in it, an Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah, He made it of the Sunnah of the RP that a person should have.
So what is the fruit of believing all of that after you believe it,
that you want to do what
you want to do enough good to make your scales heavy,
the scale of the good heavy on the last day, and the scale of evil as light as possible on the last day, and you must imagine that taking place, because this is something that will be seen,
and your actions dividing into the good and the bad, and you're waiting for the result of is the bad, heavier, or the good things heavier.
So we must and we have to do like we have to see what are the things that will be heavy in our scale, on the Day of Judgment, right. Now in order SubhanAllah. We also step on scales in this dunya. Right?
What do we weigh? When we step on scales? We weigh ourselves, and we don't do any more right? Buying and selling based on scales, not often, right? But we may. But in the olden days, it was more prevalent, you would go and buy and he will put it on the scale and he will put something else and then based on that you'll give him money, right? We don't do much of that physically, today. But what we do is that we put ourselves on this scale to see how much weight we have gained or lost. And of course, when you gain weight, what happens? You're sad, right? And you lose weight. You're happy. Now on the Day of Judgment, when you're looking at the good things that you've done, you want to be
light or heavy. You want to be heavy as heavy as possible. Okay, fam and felt Goulet magazine who for all of your issues of all the What a moment Hufford magazine who for more heavy now ones who scale is heavy, he'll live a pleasant life and the one whose scale is light, then his helmet Hellfire will be his abode, he will be his home. Okay, the place that he will return to
one of the Alma zinal Christopher LA to La munaf. So yo multi AMA, okay, Allah as he says, we will set up the scales on the day of judgment, and then no soul will be treated unjustly on the Day of Judgment. So these are your deeds and my deeds, speaking back to us and telling us, this is what you've done in your life. So you want to put heavy things in this scale? So think about it in terms of hours or terms of days or terms of years. Was this a successful day or not? Sunday's are successful days because it Hamdulillah you know, as you noticed that what you've done, you went to Joomla and you went early observed, you know that Sooners
Have you prayed on time you helped people you did. Stay away from haram. You mentioned Allah Allah so that day, probably if Allah accepts is a heavy day in your scale, other days slip away from you. You don't know where they went. Other days are disastrous because you've done something that you don't want it to have you have done, you've missed things that you should not have missed. Then pray on time you were unkind, you looked at the Haram etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. So, if you do bad, what are you supposed to do? Because now, when you have done something bad, you made the scale of bad, heavier. So, what are you supposed to do? Put something on the other scale, and it's important
and really good to visualize it. So, okay, I want to make that heavier, at least, at least, if it's fire merge from that day equal with equal good and bad at least it's better than emerging with more bad. So what are the things that could be heavy in the scale? So one of the things that we talked about was personal HELOC. Having good character is is one of the heaviest things that you could have is good character, and good character with whom good character with your parents, with your wife, with your husband, with your children, with your neighbor with people in the mess did with people who are driving next to you people that you do not know and people that you know, but practicing is
no look for the right for the remainder of that day and remainder of that week because you say, I know that this will be heavy, very heavy. So how you speak how you look, all of that is included, the vicar of Allah azza wa jal Subhan. Allah will 100 Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allahu Akbar, Allah Hola, La Quwata illa Allah and to keep repeating all of that
reading of the book of Allah azza wa jal so try to make the scales heavy so that when that moment takes place when both of this be these things will be weighed, and that determines the rest of what the rest of your existence
and worries are you're going to spend some time in Jahannam or not. So when you're going to encounter that you want to be as ready as possible. So yes, we believe in the scale. And now our job is after we believe in it to make it as heavy as possible. So everything that pleases Allah xojo goes in the right pile. And if you do something bad had to be the year tell has another term haha, follow the bad deed with a good deed so it can erase it.
Okay, so immediately after you've done something bad, give sadaqa you've done something bad pray to work as to repent from that you've done something bad, ask Allah to forgive you and keep as saying forgiveness for the rest of the day if you can, but always follow something bad was something good. And he will see that that sin is not going to leave much of a mark on your heart and much of a mark on your
life and your body. So it's important that when we learn something, we also ask ourselves, I must do something with what I have learned. So we believe in this scale. And we believe in this scale because we want to act with that belief according to that belief.
So after finishing that,
he says he moved to the next point and he says Rahim Allah, when Allah had to Allah Tabarka wa Tada you killed him with eva yo multiparameter. Allah will speak to people on the Day of Judgment. Lay Sabina home Albina, who told you man, there is no meat mediator between him and them. What Eman will be here? What does the UK will be believing in this and firmly
taking it and accepting it. So what here is adding is a branch of believing that Allah has zoton speaks we say that Allah azza wa jal speaks, as they said, Behold, Finn was soaked with a letter and a sound meaning something that you hear and something that you understand.
And that the speech of Allah azza wa jal meaning how it sounds is unlike human sound, how we don't know. But it is something distinctive as Allah Himself is distinctive. The sound of Allah azza wa jal when He speaks to you is going to be distinctive, and we leave it at that because there is nothing that we can say more about it because it is belongs to the belief in the Lape, the unseen. So Allah azza wa jal spoke with the Quran. And Allah speaks whenever he wants, and Allah is going to talk to you that's what he's saying. Allah zodat is going to talk directly to you and you will hear Him and He will talk back to Allah azza wa jal answering his questions. So that when he says here
that you are going to be talking to Allah, and there is no total Juma and I will tell you, man between you and him, meaning there's no one standing, listening to you and transferring this to Allah and vice versa. No, no, it's direct, direct conversation between you and
Allah as nobody else listens, and the prophets of Allah audios. hindlimb says, you know, in one Hadith is that Allah Azza did will bring the believer, the believer that Allah has it and wants to be kind to. So he wants to conceal what that person has done. So he'll bring himself very close to him Subhanahu wa Taala and will speak to him or nobody else can hear it. And he says, Do you remember on that day when you did this? And on that day you did this? And on that day you did that? And the believer says, What? Yes, yes, yes. And Allah is not being exhaustive.
Is not being you know, he's not including everything that that person has done, but just what reminders of few things, this and this and that. This is so that that believer in that situation is going to know and remember and appreciate the favor of Allah azza wa jal upon him. Because after that, Allah azza wa jal tell him, I've concealed it in the dunya. And I will conceal it in the Hera, meaning you're forgiven, and you're to go now were to Jana. So that clear from Allah azza wa jal, that conversation between Allah as in one of his creation is meant there to do what for him to acknowledge some of the bad that he has done, and to hear Allah's forgiveness and for him to go to
Jana. Other conversation that will take place between Allah azza wa jal and the non believers where Allah azza wa jal will ask them and they will deny. And Allah will say, you've done this and they'll swear to him,
that they haven't haven't done it. They will lie to Allah azza wa jal, then Allah will put a seal on their mouths and Allah will let their bodies speak and they will speak and they will testify against them. So that's the conversation that Allah azza wa jal will have with them. Allah says why oh my bathroom Allah Who Jamie and family phone Allah who can my holophone Allah come when Allah will resurrect them all and they will swear to him? Like they swear to you, meaning they lie to Allah azza wa jal dally like they lie to you. Do you do did you do this? No, we did not. Didn't you disbelieve in that? No, we did not so they will deny everything. And so Allah as the devil have
them, you know, confess their bodies confess that yes, they have done this and other witnesses will be brought against them. So that is a belief that we have and it's right there in the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa early he was ALLAH
the benefit that you take from that is what or let's say the fruit the practical fruit that you can take from that is what is that?
Yeah, you will insert or INEC occurred Johan era Becca, ha, thermo lucky and you are marching towards Allah as the toiling in this dunya and you will meet
your deeds and you will meet Allah azza wa jal. So the end of this journey is a meeting with whom?
Allah azza wa jal, right, so all of his commands, pray fast. Abstain from haram, Do this, don't do that. And you receiving it from Allah as Odin, and every day you're coming closer to him. And every day, you're either registering the good that you've done, or the bad, the good or the bad. And every day you're making dua, you're talking to Allah azza wa jal, and every day you're requesting you're requesting from him Subhana wa taala. And every day you were in distress and you want relief, you're asking him and you're marching towards Allah azza wa jal, and ultimately you reach that destination and ultimately, you face Allah. And Allah will ask you, what have you done with what I've given you?
Right? Right. I've given you life. I've given you youth, I've given you money. I've given you reputation, what you do with all of this, I've given you knowledge, what did you do with the knowledge that I've given to you? So all the numbers that you have, Allah will ask you about it.
And you want that meeting to be what? A pleasant meeting.
You want it to be one that you're looking forward to? Not one that you dread?
Not one that you want to avoid?
Majan you know, this is just a worldly example. Imagine if your parents had asked you to do something. And you've kept wasting time wasting time wasting time and eventually they come back home and you know that you're going to have to face your father or mother who are going to ask you what did you do with this? So if you've done well, you come to them and you say look at what I've done. How am Accra Okita BIA in New Zealand and to Nemo locket, he Serbia right when you receive the good book in your hand. Look at my record, right? You're proud of it? Right? Okay.
And I believe that um, give us an m&m meat this day am I going to be on this day? I'm gonna
Meet Allah azza wa jal, so you will be proud and you will be happy. So that meeting with Allah azza wa jal is a pleasant meeting. And the consequence of it, the aftermath of it is happiness. You're proudly showing what you have done, and you know where you're gonna go.
Okay, the other one, okay. Yeah, I like to call the I wish that I've done I wish that I've died before that they happen. Because you know that if your parents had told you to do this, and that and now it's time to meet them what? It's a dreadful. Wait. It's a dreadful wait. And every minute that you spent anticipating that moment that in itself, right, is torture,
in addition to the actual conversation or confrontation of why did you not do it? And what was your excuse? And you begin to lie, but you could not lie to Allah Zoda Right. Right. When you're stuck, what do you do? The habit is what you like to get out of it. That's the habit of people in the dunya when you really stuck you like, Okay, you could fool people in this dunya but you cannot escape Allah azza wa jal.
So you want to be in that situation or you want to be happy.
And also you take from it also, as some of the setup have said, he said, even if Allah azza wa jal forgives us all, there is also the shame of doing these things when we meet him, even if you What are forgiven, but still Allah knows that you've done
so just going to Allah azza wa jal walking up to Allah azza wa jal, and having that conversation and him saying, some of these things, you've done this and you've done that, like it's in your book, and he knows that you have done it. That is the embarrassing part of it. And even if it is what forgiven. So he says, also avoid that shame of what meaning Allah azza wa jal would fill with this baggage of all those sins. But meet him light, free of disobedience and with what Allah Zota loves. So that's a fruit that you can take from that insha Allah and maybe upon further contemplation you can come up with many things that you could add to it. But as I said, it's it's beautiful that you
learn something but they say okay, how can I change how I act and how I live and how I think so this is probably one way
and then he moves Rahim Allah and he says, well, Ema noble held the belief in the health and will explain the health which is means the pool or the reservoir that will be on the day of judgment that belongs to the prophets of Allah, Allah wa salam. And he says, he says continues and the that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has this hold, that his ummah will come and drink from out of the home is literally the length and width are equal mercy errata Shah, the travel distance of a month, and the year to who the vessels of that whole gather the new jewel Mysamma like the number of the
what he's got the stars of the sky, Allah ma Sahadeva Hill borough according to the authentic traditions that had come from more than one person and from what more than one narrations. So this held that he talked about, Rahim Allah and if you had been here for the record, Kitab recaulk, the heart the heart purification from say, Al Bukhari, we mentioned several of the a hadith of ill health, who will summarize it so I'll hold is a reservoir, a collection of water like a pool of water that gets supplied from al Qaeda. So I'll kill author is a river that the prophets of Allah Allah was in them was given in Jannah and he was shown that and he asked Gibreel Allah, He said, um,
what is this, he says, this is a co thought that Allah had given to you. And that is one of the meanings and there is inner Allina Kalka with that we have given you Alcocer that Alko thought is a river in Ghana. We said also previously that another meaning for it, I'll co author is plentitude a lot of good that ALLAH given the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of them is Al Khalifa. But Allah prophet was given also a lot of good when it comes to that miracles that he has, how many people believed in him, his reputation, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. So a lot of good but one of them is Al co author. So this co author runs in Jannah. And also supplies as he said Ali is Salatu
was Salam supplies his health. So the held is a big pool of water. So he said to here and this is extracted from the Hadith, how long is it? And how wide is it he said mercy Allah to shahada the travel distance of one entire month.
One month travel. In another Hadith, it says in the sahih, it says like the distance from Santa to a Shem, from Yemen, to Hashem all that distance, right. And all this is an approximation so that you understand that it is very big, is very big. And by the way, like all the prophets, according to an authentic hadith, all of them have helped have pools. And their followers come to each prophets held to drink from that water. Right? But the pool of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is the biggest is the biggest because his OMA is the largest and biggest ummah. So he said here and in the Hadith, and he had to who can edit the new Doom is some of the vessels, the cups that it has around for people
to drink from, are like the stars of the sky. He says Salatu was Salam, the water that is in it is sweeter than honey, and wider than milk, or another narrations than snow.
And if you drink from it, you will never be thirsty after just like wandering from that, and you will never need to drink anymore. Now you can drink any more out of enjoyment and pleasure. But you don't need to drink. So there is no thirst after that sip from ill health. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam will be standing there.
He'll be standing there. And we said in the Hadith we've mentioned before that he would recognize some people from his Alma, Allah He is Salatu was Salam. But then they will be taken away that they want to come because everybody who's rising from the grave, imagine now the rising from the grave, they'll be very thirsty.
So everybody wants to drink. So everybody's seeking the health.
So when they want to drink some of the aroma of Rasulullah sallallahu Cinnamoroll, they'll be denied a drink, the angels will take him away. And the Prophet will recognize and they say, but these are part of my uma bring him back. And the angels will say you do not know what they have done after you. You don't know what they've changed and how they have changed. So the prophets a lot here said and we'll say away away with them. So to be denied, drinking from ill health as punishment from straying from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and innovating in it, not following Him. And the one who wants to really drink from ill health needs to do what,
see what the Prophet has said, and believe it and see what the prophet had done, and follow it. But not innovate and change it. Right? Not innovate and change it. We're not talking here about some sins here and there that may have settled, we can seldom escape from, we're talking about major changes in belief, major changes in practice, that take you away from Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, until a person deserves the prayer, that title of innovator, or a changer in the Sharia. So you want to drink from that and never go thirsty after and from the hand of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam is not by simply by wishing it, but by what saying how he lived and you live it what he
believed, and you believe it, if you deviate, you begin to what risk the fact that a person could or the angel could deny you on the Day of Judgment, drinking from the health and being denied drinking from the house does not necessarily mean that the person is a disbeliever Yes, it could be. It could be that the person was from the Amanda he disbelieved and he will never be able to drink from the house. So that's a possibility. Or the other possibility is that they are an innovator or a sinful person who cannot immediately drink from the house will be taken away as a punishment from not following Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam appropriately so that is the reason why we need to
understand how he prayed how he fasted and also importantly what he believed so when he Hamid Mohammed Rahim Allah he says, and from the sooner you have to believe this and this in this is telling you things that will save you. It's not it's not just a waste of time, God forbid, right? A waste of time, or just believe in this and that as if it has no impact. No, these things will have an impact in the era. Where are you gonna go? Right? Only drink from the health or not and they will have an impact here.
Because if you believe in the health, right in the belief in the health, it must also have consequences. Now, one of the things we've asked then
is an we'll ask again now is, you know, why is it my is it that Allah azza wa jal will have his prophets be at the pool each prophet
We'll have a pool and they will give their followers worthy followers water to drink. He says what is the heck am I behind it? Is there a hikma behind it? And before we answer, like, if there's a hikma behind it,
the question of hikma, right? I just want to emphasize this. Is it always possible to understand and know the Hickman? No, it's not. So the reason why sometimes I asked you that you tried to supply the hikma is because sometimes it's easy.
Because it's stated Hickmott gets stated like Allah as the two had forbidden this for this reason, and commanded this for that reason. So it's easy because it's stated, or it can easily be gleaned and understood from the Quran and Sunnah. And sometimes it's based on some he had some effort in trying to extract that hikma, but you're not actually sure, and in some places, you simply do not know. yet. Maybe you'll know later, maybe you will never know.
So the problem with asking the hikma or asking for the Hekima all the time is what is good? What do you do? If you cannot get the hikma? Will you still do it or not?
So if you make understanding the hikma conditional,
then there will be things that you're not going to follow.
And you will always be following what your mind and not Allah has. So just because you're saying, If I can understand it, then it can follow it. But what if you don't understand it? What if Allah gives you something in life that you don't understand? What do you do with that? What if Allah gives you a command in the Quran or the Sunnah that you don't understand? What do you do with it?
Right? So again, that famous example telling me why five sodas a day, and not four and not six, and the why for rock has and not three or not five? So tell me what's the hikma behind it? So if you say I'll only do it if I understand what it means. Then you did not trust him. subhanho wa Taala you only trusting what? Me? If I understand it, then I'll do it. Right. But if you say I submit to Allah azza wa jal because I believe him. I believe him to be the creator. And I believe this message does come from the Creator. Whether you understand the hikma or not
it does not affect your deeds. It can increase your iman when you know the hikma because you understand the Sharia a little bit better. But it doesn't shake your Eman. If you don't have the hikma, you don't have the wisdom behind an act. So something is there, it's there. And Allah could grant you an understanding later or maybe never, because the lesson times will test you. Right? So I want you to understand this. There'll be things in life and this is important, just in your life that will happen to you. Or questions that you receive that you do not understand. Why did I get sick at this particular time? Why did I lose this job? Why did I not get this exact thing that I
wanted? The thing that I really love why you did that? I did not get this and then your mind will tell you I could have done so much good with it. Why that did not happen. Here. You're asking for the wisdom behind that. Please Allah may not supply it.
Not yet. What are you going to do?
What what is the what's the only practical solution here? If you want to maintain your iman is to see what trust him Allah, just Allah
and ask maybe Allah show me by. But that showing may take years to happen until you see the wisdom of it all. But before that you must trust Allah has his origin. So in the Quran, there will be things in the Sunnah there will be things that initially you may not understand. And so but you still have to follow even if you don't understand them. And we said here again, and again, we'll say it we're not here asking people to believe blindly. There's a difference. This is based on what based on an investigation and a belief that Allah is the Creator, Muhammad sallahu Sena is the messenger. The Quran is from Allah Zota. The Sunnah is from Allah.
If there are individual things in it that you don't get, you refer back to that original belief, right? And you do this in life, by the way, you go to the doctor, and the doctor tells you do A, B, C and D, do you understand the A, B, C, and D that he tells you to do all the tests, all the medicine, how it works? You don't understand all of it, maybe some but not all of it. But why do you take it from him? Because what's your original belief? He's a doctor who knows what he's supposed to do. So I refer what the unknown to the known say, this isn't this how we operate, I take the unknown. I refer to the known that small
unknown based on the big known that I have, which is the I trust this person, otherwise you wouldn't go to them and you would not consult them. So if you believe Allah is the Creator, and then he tells you something that you don't understand, refer back to Allah azza wa jal and you say, I believe in Allah and believe in His prophets, Allah decent and then look for the wisdom. Now this wisdom, right? He said, Why is it that Allah azza wa jal had made the prophets supply this water? He said that when we discussed it in Kitab, Rikako, he said that what Allahu Allah, because this is not stated, but to Allahu Allah, this duplicates what the prophets of Allah who are doing in the dunya
and telling you about it in the AF era, because everybody in the dunya is thirsty for guidance. So hey, where do you get this guidance from?
Through whose hand
Rasulullah saw is high. So if the prophet is living, okay, you would go to him and you would hear from him the Quran. And you would hear from him the Sunnah. So that thirst that you have to know the truth, and to be guided is supplied by only one. And that is a sort of lifestyle, Allah, you seldom see you go from head for him, he gives you the knowledge and it satisfies you It quenches that thirst that you have. So if you don't do that, you will remain thirsty, no matter what you drink, because he's the only one who can supply it.
And if you drink it, it quenches your thirst. And if you deviate, that means what you rejecting that water, so on the Day of Judgment, you will be denied that water as well. So it's Allahu Allah, it mirrors what the Prophet sallahu wa salam did in the dunya, to tell you about it in the akhira. So that in the dunya, you follow the same pattern, which is that if I want to drink, like really drink the pure water, go to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and grab that water from his hand and drink it, and that will satisfy you, if you go to other pools, right, they're not going to have the same clear water, the same beautiful water that will actually nourish you, it will be something that
is incomplete, but go to the source and go to Rasulullah he SallAllahu Ariosa. So they say Well, lo our lamb, that's the wisdom and there might be some other things in it. But anyway, do we believe in it? As he said Allah His Salatu was Salam, we absolutely do and it will exist and people should want to drink from the hand of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam and remember, when you are thirsty just you know longing to drink some water to quench your thirst, the amount of thirst that people will have on the day of judgment and their need for that water and that once you have it and that water is coming from where by the way from Jana, so once you drink from that water, how it satisfies
you. So that is following Rasul Allah He said Allah He was
no. And he said also we move on he talks Rahimullah the next point he says, Well EMA no be either be l carbery. It says, unbelieving in the punishment of the grave. What now the OMA toof turn off you're a warrior and that this OMA will be tested in the graves what is a low annual EMA and he will Islami will be asked about Islam and Iman, woman Rob whoo hoo, woman EBU who and who is his Rob and who is his prophet WIAA T, he won't count on one eye care and one Khurana care. These are the two angels, they will come to him Keifa shad in a way that Allah you know, wills However, Allah wills, okay for our rod, what email will be able to still be here and believing in that and accepting it?
So the next point that he's affirming, Rahim, Allah is believing in the punishment of the grave. And if you believe in the punishment of the grave, there's also what the bliss of the grief. So this and that are there. And why is he affirming that belief, because like a lot of the things that we talked about, there are people who deny it,
the people who deny it, so let's affirm the belief and then talk about the people who deny it and why they do that.
So an email will be other will cover and the amount of 10 of you who have already had the test of the grave, as the test of the questioning.
So Monica and Nikki are they will come. So Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said then when the person is buried,
and he's still just fresh in his grave, and he can hear the footsteps of those who buried him and those who are leaving, he can still hear it. So that's what still fresh. That's the first thing that happens to Him in the grave is the two angels Moncure and Nichia. They will come and sit him up.
And we've got a Nikhil Allah alum they say why are they called Mancha and Nicaea and this is what
just extracted from the name and from the description that the prophets of Allah Allah who sent him gifts to them because he describes them as black. Okay? And he describes them as being rough. Fanta Hirani, that when they come to the person to ask any person, right, they'll be intimidating.
Okay, that's an intimidating encounter. So Mancha, Nichia, just the name itself tells you that this is something that is intimidating. cheer you on Kiro that will feel that will fill you with fear, something that will frighten you something that you don't recognize. So imagine just simply right, you're entering into a new phase of life, different type of life, just entered the grave. And this the muffle may have very few moments in the grave. And Luca and Nicki are they come and they are rough and they are strong and they sit you up and start to ask you questions. Man roadbook, my de anak. And what do they say about this person, which is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for
anyone who had existed after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And these are rough questions coming from rough people, and you're terrified and you're alone. That is the fitna.
And that is, you know, the moment where a person needs what support from Allah azo Duluth a bit Hola. Hola, Dena Amanu Bill Kohli Thabeet if it hired the dunya of zero, as Allah says, Allah azza wa jal will confirm and make steadfast those who had believed in the dunya. And in the earth yet, I mean, at this moment, where you may not forget your own name. In normal circumstances, you may not know what to say, in normal circumstances, somebody kind of interrogate you like that in a new place, when you're alone?
How will you be able to answer that question?
So that is where if you believe, right, Allah as it will guide you to say, the right thing,
what you believe really inside, kind of kind of will will surface and your tongue will speak and you will say, Allah is this Allah is the one that I worship. My religion is Islam, and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is a prophet. They're very easy. They're very easy answers, right? But unlike things that you could memorize, and repeat, these are things that you could only say if you're honest about all of these things, so it's nothing that you could fake. So only reality will help you. And if a person does not believe, he will see what I don't know. I don't know. I used to say as the Prophet sallallahu sallam said in the Hadith, I used to hear people say something, so I said it.
I just went to the crowd, but did you believe what you believe what they actually said? I just heard people say things. So I said the same thing. So that's why he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam that if a person
says the right things and he is a believer, right, then he said that a nice looking guy would come
and sit next to him.
Handsome guy, beautifully dressed to be his companion.
And he will say who are you? Because you Your face is a pleasant face. And it is, it is it gives you kind of a good prediction of what's going to come next. So well who are you? He says I am your good deeds.
Now he personified alright have taken that shape I am your good deeds.
I indeed I've known you to be good rushing to Allah's obedience, this this this and that.
It says on another Hadith he says that when that person answers Well,
Allah as it will open a portal.
Okay, between him and Jana, and he will see his place in Jannah. And he will be given the good news that he will be in Jannah. So he'd be so happy. And he says he will say to the angels he says let me go and let my family know.
Let me go and give them the good news. So it says in one of their Hadees so their angel will say he says num can only allow Rossella the UK to have li li a says sleep or lay down. You know, the sleep of the newlywed who will be awakened by his most beloved.
Like on that night, right? That summit is typically supposed to be a pleasant, delightful night, the first night when you get married, right and you're intimate. And then you go to bed and you're woken up by who someone that you love. So he says lie down. Says like the best sleep that you can have, of course
The person will be conscious and aware of what's going to happen around. But here the angels is telling him that for the remainder of your stay here, this will be so pleasant just like a person who had slept on his wedding day, or it wasn't not wedding night, and then had been woken up by the person that he loves the most. So, a portal between him and Heaven will open and it's smell and it's some of its bliss will enter his grave. And he also will be shown hellfire and says this would have been your place in hellfire if Allah did not save you, so that he would thank Allah azza wa jal more, so he will be repeatedly shown his place in heaven, and it will get some of its name some of
its bliss, and he's being be kept company by his good deeds. So this is what the bliss of the grave, right,
the punishment of the grave, if a person does not answer, and does not know and does not believe Alayhi Salatu was Salam said that the first thing that he will get is that the grave will shrink so much that his ribs will collapse onto each other for the telephoto, she will become so tight, that that will happen to him. And then an evil looking
person will appear to him. And he will say who are you? Because such a sight and such as smell is something that is most odious, something that is very hateful, who are you says I am, you're your own evil deeds now personified. This is what you've done. And now I'm gonna keep you company, till the Day of Judgment, says panela when you think about it, that we helped create this monster, and then that monster stays with you, right? And then Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said, then a portal between him and hellfire will be opened. And he will get some of its burning some of its fire some of its smell some of its smoke.
of course, so it's it's being punished with all of that. And the disbelieve are the one who's being punished, he will say Allah, don't let the Day of Judgment happen,
that of the Messiah, whereas the believer will say what?
Yeah, Allah would bring the Day of Judgment. Because where is he going? To join us? So he knows what is waiting for him is even better than this is even much better than this. And he can't wait to go and tell his family but he can't he say be still be in your place. He cannot leave. But he knows what is waiting for him and he could see it. Every one once in a while, right? Or everyday. He could see it, he could see it, he could see it. So he's he can't wait for that place. But the disbeliever and those who are being punished, he say what? Don't bring it because I know what is waiting for me and it's worse than the punishment in the grief. Right. So who is punished in the grave the poor are
those who are punished in the grade that disbelievers who did not believe in Allah azza wa jal, the hypocrites who pretended to be Muslims, but they are not, and the sinful. Now the sinful those who are Muslims, but they've done things to deserve being punished in the grave. It doesn't mean that they will be punished from their death all the way till the Day of Judgment. No, it varies. It depends on that punishment could last a day or a week or a year or 100 years, depending on what they've done. So it could end that punishment in the grave for some Muslims could end before the day of judgment. So what are the things that could cause punishment in the grave? We know from
Rasulullah sallallahu send them in these are examples we know from the Prophets a lot. He was sitting him, he passed by a grave, and he could hear
he says in the whole murder, you have the burning or you have the burn, if you pick up figure B, it says they are being punished, meaning right now, and they're not being punished because of something that is big.
And another generation it says it is big, meaning it's caught because it's caused punishment. It is big, but in terms of how we look at it, in terms of avoiding it, it's not big. Had to come off again, am she Binda Mima as for the other one person who used to be a gossiper, or who would transfer people secrets been Amina, while Mala Hertha can alias the terminal bowl I will I attend as the hormonal bowl as the other person who did not clean his himself from urine or did not shield himself when he was urinate urinating, meaning he people could see him. So these two things are small. And Amina is what isn't when you heard something from someone and you go to another person,
he said, Do you know what he said about you? So exposing people secrets, transferring bad things that people have said about each other gossip? Is that's a reason for a person to be punished and were in the grief and the other person is urinates but doesn't clean himself.
or does it in view of other people, is that's another reason to be punished in the grave. So there are things and this is just an example, there are things that a person does in the grave, he'll be punished.
So, the Why did people deny that? What's the problem with it?
Because they try to use their mind and their senses. And they say we bury people. And then after that, we dig them up. And we don't notice anything. Or if you bury a person, and all the things that you said, don't happen in front of us.
So is this a reason to deny that?
This is no. Why is this? First of all, does this belong to animal shahada or animals, the role of the scene or the unseen, the role of the unseen? Because if people right, could see all of this, everybody would become Muslim? Right? If they could see that a person has been punished in degree, everybody would become a Muslim. So that is hidden from all of us. And the prophets, Allah, Allah was telling me he said, if, if not, so that you would stop burying your dead, I would ask Allah that you would hear you hear what I'm hearing, and being people being punished. But imagine if we had that kind of ability, you pass by a grave, or a cemetery and you hear screams coming from it? Would
you bury anybody? No. So imagine how terrifying that is, you know, just on just existing, if you could just can pass by and every time you hear these screaming and squealing, and that torment that they're going through,
though, so that's one just to be able to live? You're not going to hear that, but also what? So that to distance animals ate from animals shahada, that's the first thing the second thing is that scholars of Islam have said that this happens to the soul, it doesn't happen to the body,
because the body is going to perish. And the soul is the thing that moves between the grave and Jana and hellfire and has this access. So yes, you could open it, but you may not see anything, and you will not see anything. And there are some examples, but this is not widespread.
of people who you know, as the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam
said about Papanui Salah eel is that Allah azza wa jal has allowed them to see things that are miraculous that later nations will not see. And some of these things he said SallAllahu wasallam is that a group of men gathered and they said, let's pray and ask Allah azza wa jal to show us
the punishment of the grave. So they prayed and prayed and prayed. And he said, they said, and then afterwards, a person rose from the grave.
And he said, Why did you ask Allah azza wa jal to send me back? I spent such in such many years, I forgot how many years he said, and now only the questioning had ended with me. Right? So ask Allah Azza to take me back in. So they prayed. And then he went back in meaning that for them, and specifically them, Allah as it allowed that person to rise, just to tell them about the things that he had seen, and then asked to go back. So and for some people that they could witness some of it, some of it the person burned a little bit a person is you know, subhanAllah on, you know, on his way to be buried. Some signs of a good end person is smiling, there's must coming out of them this and
that, or the opposite. Right? The person's is dark and is blackened. There are some signs that people could see, but it's not so widespread that a person could say, Okay, now we know that this exists. With with with proof in the dunya. The proof that we have is from the healer.
And it doesn't depend on what you see, and it doesn't depend on what you feel. Because we believe that this is happening. Now. Why do we know that it's happening, like we believe in everything in the next life? We believe that the punishment in the grave and the bliss and the grief is true, because of a prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam have said that it is true. So the motor Zilla that we've talked about denied because they use their mind and they simply say we don't see any of that so it cannot be true.
And then some of the heirs of the motor Zilla Like for instance, I was reminded today of his with the Harrier. So his with the Harrier, right who does exists right till today, one of the things that they promote, and I don't know if this is a common belief in everyone who belongs to them, but at least in the founders, and how it described is that they deny or they will
they deny that we'll cover why because for his word to hurry, and the founders of his word to hate on those who believe in it. They say what we use our minds. We use our minds. So the value would the Mozilla have done and they say that a hadith
I heard if there's a hadith that would they call it a had singular that cannot be used to establish a leader. So they will deny that and they will read I deny at the journal and maybe I'll Maddie, I'm not sure about that. But I'm sure about the job and a double cover.
So to that, and again we need to affirm the importance of Hadith. And we talked about Hadith Allah had right so Hadith Allah had we say anything that is other than mutawatir is Hadith or had
meaning is transferred or
transmitted by one or two or three or four or five, as long as does not reach that level of diwata. You know, it's like certainly had been set. When we said that the scholars of Islam, including Muhammad have no humble never looked at a hadith like that. They knew that if Hadees hadith is authentic, meaning it had been investigated, examined both the chain and the statement itself, the medicine and a Senate. So the Hadith itself, and its chain of all of that had been investigated. And the scholars of Islam have said that it's authentic, it both establishes al Qaeda and practice
after either and practice. Right. So there is no sense trying to distinguish between Arcada based on water, water and actually the based on our heart. This is a layer of innovation in Islam that in itself is Buddha. But Hamilton no humble Rahim Allah and the scholars before him during an after never looked at Athena like that. So don't sing the song of a hardened Mutata
you have to forget that right? You have to forget that it may have consequences in terms of who is a Muslim and who's not. But in terms of sunnah and following the Sunnah had an mutawa there is not a valid
differentiation to make. In fact if the prophets Allah Selim said something and you have the scholars accepting it and it's the books of Islam it's done so it's no longer a had as such. Okay You understand me is no longer a had as such, it may have started can somebody come and steal me in MLA amount of money yet now is a had
in the Malema robinia? How do you know how many scholars accept that how many scholars value that hadith? And how many books of Hadith it is there in Albania is no longer a HUD anymore, right? In its essence, right? In the beginning way in the beginning, right? Because it came from Mr. Radi Allahu Anhu. And then it spread after you could say a had then. But after it got accepted now, and you told me that it is no, it doesn't have this status of an accepted Hadith because it's a hard it's no longer that, technically a hard because of the Senate, but no longer it had in the sense of Oh, it doesn't have that legitimacy. No, no, it's accepted now. So again, right ahead. And with a
lot of these things, we should move beyond them and know that if it's established and the order accepted, and it's in the books of Hadith, it's done. It's a done deal. So that is a firm belief that we should have in other bookable when our email cover, right, and it's has evidence in the Quran. It has evidence in the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallaahu mentioned the Hadith of the Sunnah.
There's an ayah in the Quran.
Now you are doing Alia who do well Why is she here? Why Yama Docomo? Allah Ramana I shall adopt what Allah azza wa jal says. And now you are doing Alia who do well we're actually here they will be presented to the fire they will meet the fire day and night or early morning and in the afternoon, while multicam and on the Day of Judgment, let the people of Pharaoh or Pharaoh and his family enter or his followers enter hellfire. So they say on the Day of Judgment it says what let them enter hellfire. What when does this the other thing happened that precedes it. And now you are alone. Alia who is here when does that happen? He says that's in the grave that's in the grave. Okay, so that's
their punishment in the grave. And then on the day of judgment they'll enter it will be in hellfire but before that there will be presented to hellfire will do wha wha she so the early in the morning and late afternoon. So that's one idea in the Quran to prove it. And there are many a Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam about it shall so I think it's suitable insha Allah to stop here and see if you have questions let me know
no questions. Go ahead.
Wondering for the people that are on the division of labor a member we're supposed to go after the Hellfire rate
No, I'm Nam. So yes. So the question is that will people on the day of judgment be aware of their house or their place in Jannah? Will they have a kind of knowledge of it? Because they used to see it so often right? And said, yes, they will remember because the prophets Allah, Allah Azza wa sallam, he said that they will know their place in Jannah more than they know their place in this life. Right? So it seems to me that either that because they used to see it, they will know it very well. Or that Allah Allah will give them that knowledge so that when they enter Jannah, they know exactly where to go. They don't need to ask for directions. It's as if it's their place already. So
they know exactly here, here here until they reach their face. So yes, they will have knowledge of it.
Okay, good. Okay.
Yeah. So the question here is trying to reconcile the two things of okay. So there's going to be me Zahn on the day of judgment that is, in a way, both the good and bad, but also in the grave, right. A person may be punished for it.
No, so the the reason has not been encountered yet. Right. So this person is being punished first in the grave, before the knees on itself. So I think the question is that this person know, then because he's being punished in the grave that he is going to be in hellfire. Just because he's being punished? No.
No, no, I mean, so I mean, let's, let's talk about it this way. So the Hadith gives you what the Hadith gives you, the believer and the disbeliever. Right, you have someone in the middle, who is the sinful Muslim who is going to be punished. So
that punishment that the person could go through in El cover, right in the grave, may actually work to his advantage before he reaches the Day of Judgment, because when he goes to the Day of Judgment, who already paid the price, or some of the price, right for that crime, or for those sins that he had committed, so when he goes to the MISA, it doesn't necessarily mean that he's going to hellfire.
Right, he had paid some of the price already in the grave. And maybe he paid full price, or he paid partial price for it. Alright, so when he goes to the MISA, he still is going to find out where he's going to go here, or there. Now, of course, in the in the grave is going to show you, right, you're going to end up here, or you're going to end up here, but that may not for the person right in the middle may not be all of the story, because you're going to end up here, but will you visit this first or not?
Alright, so he has some knowledge, but he doesn't have all of the knowledge. Right? So he knows he paying some price but he's annoyed does he is this enough? Or is this still more to be paid? So that's why they move on comes to tell the whole story. The cupboard tells you part of the story about some of the scenes
that makes sense. Okay.
Okay, so when Missy hit the gel, so this is coming up actually. So next next week. Yeah, we'll talk about it next week in shell.
So I don't see any more hands up right here in Charlotte leave Subhanak law behind the shadow ADA ADA Island. stuff to work with
