Just close the door shall close it or close it.
So last time we met, we talked about adorable cub, and the fitnah total cub punishment in the grave and the question that is in the grave, and there's a question that we received.
And I said, when I received it last time, it was I didn't know the answer to it, but one of the brothers does on the left here alerted me to the answer. And the question was that if a punishment, if person avoids the punishment in the grave, meaning if they go into the grave, they're not punished? Does that mean that they will not be punished afterwards? In
the hereafter when they are resurrected when all of us are resurrected back? And the answer can be found in a hadith as the brother you reminded me of the Prophet salallahu Salam, and it's narrated by Earth mineral, the Allahu Anhu on Earth man. It is said that when he would
stand next to a grave or when the grave is mentioned, he would cry so much that he would wet his beard for the Allahu Anhu. So a person exclaimed and asked him and he said, When the grave is mentioned, you cry so much, but when Heaven and Hell are mentioned, you don't cry as much. How is that so? He said, I heard that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said el cobre woman, as you will hear, that the grave is the first station of the stations of the Hereafter, for Inogen Morrow Minho. firmado, who is a woman, he says, if a person survives that he is safe there, what comes after is easier than it? Were in them, you and human who we are named, oh, the Buffy if he is
punished in it, what comes after is more difficult than it? Right? What comes after is more difficult than it. And then he said also that the prophets Allah alayhi wa sallam said that I haven't seen a site that is more horrible or frightening than the grief. So that tells you and that answers Hamdulillah that question, which is if a person goes into the grave, and Allah spares him, he saves him he's not punished in it. And that is what tells you that what comes after is easier in the law. So there is no punishment that will follow. But if he is punished, there is that possibility right? There is the possibility that what comes after could be more difficult, right?
Allahu Allah. So since we finished talking about the grave insha Allah Now we move on to talk about the Shiva. So let's first of all read the text from an Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah and then discuss the Shiva and kind of issues related to it. He says, Well, Iman was we're still we're talking about the foundations of the Sunnah. What are the fundamental beliefs that we all should have? He says, Well Iman who and belief be Shiva it Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So believe in the intercession of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he adds will be a comin Yeah, hello, Jonah, Mina Nadi badda Mata or sorrow Fatima, and believing that period there will be people who
taken out of hellfire who will leave Hellfire after they were completely burned and entered into coal. Right? for you tomorrow be him. Ilana hatin alibi Bill jannettek Emajor. I feel, he says they will be commanded and taken to carry to a river at the door or next to the door or the gate of paradise. K Fisher, our commercia Allah says, however Allah wills it, it's going to happen, but it's going to happen. He says in nama who will email will be what does the copy Simply we have to believe in those things as they've been reported. So he says it is going to happen, how exactly it's going to happen, how it's going to look, he says, We do not know simply what do we do is we believe in the
authority in that tradition in the Hadith, as has been reported to us. So the intercession of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and intercession in general is one of those topics that are still relevant till today, because a lot of us, you know, Muslims in general are confused about it still. And it compared to some of the other things that we talked about. So the shefa in general, and the Shiva the messenger Salatu was Salam in particular, people have gone into it into extremes. So let's first understand what it is and understand the extremes, and then the consequences of that belief. So if you want to understand first what shefa is like linguistically, Shafaq comes from the
dual, not a singular but a dual. Alright, so if a person wants something, and he asks somebody's aid, someone's help come and plead my case with me. So the
person who is asking now is not one, but how many? Two? Right? So chef ah whoa behalf Yanni this person is asking then the person came and he made them what to? So instead of just me pleading my case asking for something or relief from something, somebody else is also asking with me. That is what that's Chifa okay. So instead of one, they are what? Two, that is what, what shefa is, and you will find in the Quran that Allah azza wa jal talks about the Shiva in more than one area, right? For instance, Mandela the yusho in the hole in the evening, who will be able to intercede in front of Allah Zoda except with Allah's permission,
there is a Shiva in the dunya. Alright, like you talk to someone, on someone's behalf, can you give them a job? Can you save him from this punishment? That is what? Shiva, right? So there's a Shiva in the dunya. And if you do a good Shiva, Allah rewards you for it. If you do a bad shofar, you will be responsible for the sin that it generates. So somebody who deserves punishment, and you go plead their case so that they'd not be punished. That was what, that's a bad effort. Somebody who deserves a particular position, and no one knows about him and you go and you argue his case until he gets it. But if that is a good type of shefa, so this shefa in the dunya, but also there's a Shiva in the
Fira, right. So Allah talks in the Quran about it. And for instance, he says, Welcome in mela King fissa Tila Tonisha Autohome che il Amin by the then Allah Halima Yasha, who were your door he says how many angels there are in the heavens, that their intercession will be of no help, except after Allah azza wa jal allows gives permission to whomever he wills and he is happy with that intercession. So Shiva in the hara does not happen unless what Allah gives permission.
And also, he's happy with that intercession, happy with the intercessor. And happy with the person whose revisits receiving that intercession and the outcome of that intercession, only then the Shiva proceed in the dunya. By the way, that's how it's different in the dunya. That does not happen in the same way. Because in the dunya, you can intercede without permission, right? You can go to someone and you say, you know, so and so because he's close to you, or you just know him or you got access. I have my friend, I have my nephew, I have who needs something, could you help him? So you could proceed with intercession without asking for permission, right. And your intercession does not
have to be just so you can jump the line. Right as it happens often, so you don't deserve something. But someone intercedes on your behalf and you get the job while you don't deserve it. But what happens is connections. Does that work the same way in the Athena? Know with Allah azza wa jal? Absolutely not. So with Allah you cannot receive to intercede unless Allah gives permission. You also see in sha Allah that in the Hadith, in the Sunnah he has Allah has to say yes to you. And also he has to agree that what not only that you are satisfactory, but also that your intercession is satisfactory, that this person deserves it, if not, your intercession will be rejected. And
intercession with Allah azza wa jal is always just here in the dunya it's not just with Allah azza wa jal, only when you deserve it, do you receive it and you'll see evidence for that. So Allah azza wa jal Kolinda. He shefa to Jamia she's Allah, Allah says in the Quran, Shiva all of it belongs to Allah so no one has it. No one has the right to perform Shiva in the earth era, unless Allah azza wa jal allows it. By the way, you know, again, just to clarify the meaning of Shiva, we said that Shiva is pleading somebody's case, right?
asking Allah as xojo Shiva is also do
sudo is Shiva. So there's a Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Salam that says that he or he said liquidity into the into our tomb Mudaraba every prophet has an answer. Do what you need to do our T. SCHEFFER, Athan, Leo, Murthy, omo Kiana and I've saved my dua that accepted to as Shiva for my ummah, on the Day of Judgment. Right. So that tells you that they are also synonymous that a dua is also Shiva. In another Hadith, he said, Allah Salatu was Salam. He said, if a person dies, and 40 people who live should be gonna be Lehi, che they have no take no partners with Allah azza wa jal. They have no shame.
To pray Janessa for him in luxury home will Loafie accept that Allah will accept their intercession for him.
So if somebody dies and how many people pray behind 40 And what's the condition? They have no *can Allah azza wa jal, Allah will accept their intercession and now in the Salah, what are you saying? What is that intercession? Yeah Allah forgive me Allah have mercy on him, etcetera, etcetera. So it's do so that's what Shiva is in case it's confusing. So Allah then tells us that in the Quran, there is a Shiva, but the Shiva word has to be after Allah's permission and after Allah azza wa jal is approves of it. But also he tells us also our other places in the Quran Fermat in fact home chef to chef here in the intercession of the intercessors will not help them
once you call me Mara as of now communicably At a yo Mala buy your own fee Hola Hola. Hola. shefa
spent for moto we have given you before a day comes when there is no transaction no selling and buying. There is no close friendship and there is no intercession. So some ayat in the Quran will deny intercession but denies it for whom, for those who are not worthy to receive it. Right or not worthy to receive it. And either i is in the Quran they will say they will say that the intercession will not work unless after Allah azza wa jal allows it in the mean body, then Allahu iliamna, Yeshua or Yoda, except after Allah is happy with that intercession and he allows it.
So, let's now move to the Sunnah. And the importance of moving to the Sunnah is because it's clarifies without doubt, what that intercession is. So it tells us that and the Hadith, we've read that hadith, that long hadith of intercession before whether people will go to Adam Alayhis Salam, on the day of judgment, and they will say you are the first prophet, you are the father of humanity, don't you see our situation? And what a hardship we are in? So what is this hardship? Because this is the greatest shafa that we're talking about. What is this hardship that we're talking about, is that everybody had been brought back to life. And everybody is standing on this playing field, all
human humans have ever lived, and the sun is very close to their to our heads, and people are sweating. And it's linked fie. And Allah azza wa jal has not yet come for judgment. Because when judgment comes, at least there is some relief. Allah has not come yet. And it's taking time and it's taking time and it's difficult and stay, and Allah has not come yet. That's why they start heading to them. Ali Salam and asking, couldn't you intercede on our behalf? Could you ask Allah azza wa jal to start that judgment? And Adam refuses. And then they go to new and new refuses, and they go to Ibrahim and he refuses, and they go to Musa and they go to Isa, and they eventually go to Muhammad
Ali, who Salatu was Salam and Isa when he was saying, He says, Go to this Mohammed, whom all of his sins had been forgiven. So they go to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and a prophet of Allah, Allah you saw, he's the one who was promised that position. So he'd heads to Allah azza wa jal, and he prostrates in subdued and he said, Are you Salatu was Salam and I will praise Allah azza wa jal with such phrases that Allah will teach me them, meaning I do not know now, but Allah who will teach me then
and after Allah will let him be in that prostration as long as Allah wishes, and then Allah will say, raise your head and ask and you will be given and intercede and your intercession will be accepted. And then only would Allah azza wa jal start judging humanity and bring relief to them. So he said Allah is Salatu was Salam. He says that will be a position. That will be a time where all of humanity will seek and one from me even Ibrahim Ali Sinha
said every single human being will realize the value and the virtue of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because there's only one who was promised that position. And this is called El Mocambo Muhammad. So that is the greatest intercession and the greatest Shiva and it's called the praised station. Everybody sees it and everybody needs him. Ali has salatu salam. So that belongs only to Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. There is another intercession that only belongs to him and that intercession is opening the gates of what Jana
that only belongs to rasool Allah is Allah to use and so that's specific to him. There's another one that some scholars add another intercession that some scholars set which is what the intercession for Abu Talib some scholars have said that that is specific to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because Abu Talib was supposed to be he did he accept Islam by the way? What no he did not. So he died as a disbeliever. Despite all the good that he has done protecting the prophets a lot he was sent him he didn't believe so as a disbeliever. He deserves to be at the bottom of hellfire not at the top. But then Rasulullah Salallahu Salam interceded for him. And he's the top the lowest
levels of hellfire not at the depth, but the lowest levels of hellfire. So some of the other might have said this is also specific to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So these two or three are to him, and I use salatu salam alone, then comes a common Shiva. This common Shiva is where the prophets of Allah and others will intercede with Allah to get people out of hellfire or people not to get into hellfire. Right.
And in that or that type of Shiva, the prophets of Allah all of them will intercede. The angels of Allah who will intercede and the righteous will also intercede. So the martyr the Shaheed the righteous for his family for his friend, as much as Allah azza wa jal allows, and it happens in portions. So the prophets Allah Allah wa salam, as it says, in the Hadith, he'll gold prostrate before Allah azza wa jal, Allah will tell him you're allowed now to go and extract from hellfire, such and such people, those who have that particular that particular weight of iman in their hearts. So the prophets Allah, Allah wa salam and the righteous and the other prophets and the angels will
go and get those out of hellfire. Then the prophets of Allah will prostrate and the Prophet alayhi salatu, Salam will prostrate to ask for more. So go tell him go and get more out and then get go and get more out and so on and so on and so on, until you reach the end. And the end are those who have have the least amount of iman in their hearts, the least amount of iman in the hearts and what Imam Muhammad is talking about is exactly what is mentioned in the Hadith, those who had burned so much that they've turned into a piece of coal completely burned inside out, then they will be taken and they will be put inside dipped into natural higher the river of life and they will come back to
And these are almost Allah alum, the last portion that will leave hellfire and who stays behind those who have no email at all. Those who have no email at all. So, the Chacao the prophets Allah Allah will send them on Yeah, we can add also to the Shiva of the Prophet and others, a Shiva for those who have deserved to go to hellfire not to go to it.
And those who have entered heaven to have higher ranks in it, that's also other types of Shiva. So evidence for the Shiva for instance, in in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says Shiva it Limca elimin OMA TMI shefa is for the major sinners in my ummah. Yanni those will be those who will need it the most. Right? Why? Because where will they be in hellfire, right? unless Allah azza wa jal saves them because of other reasons. They will be in hellfire. So they will need the Shiva the intercession of the prophets, Allah salam to come and take him out of it and put them in heaven. So that tells us that even though you're a major sinner, you what you're still eligible for what the
Shiva with the prophets, Allah, Allah wa salam, as long as you die, not associating partners with Allah azza wa jal, then you're eligible for that Shiva. Right? You're eligible for that Shiva and you will receive it by the will of Allah Allah will accept it the only thing is when when and I will What are your are the Allahu Anhu we had asked the messenger Salallahu Salam Manasa Danesi Bucha RTK or multi Amma who is going to who is the one who's going to be happiest with your intercession with your Shiva on the day of judgment he said Man, Kala La ilaha illAllah. Morley Salman Khan obey the one who says La ilaha illallah sincerely from his heart. Because what does that mean when you say
that ala ala Allah sincerely from your heart that your Eman is what? Strong and the stronger your man is, the faster that you will receive the intercession form Rasul Allah is of law he was in and maybe you will not even enter Hellfire at all and maybe you will enter Jannah and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam will intercede that you will go higher
as he did with aka Akasha when he when the Hadith about the 70,000 who will enter heaven without account without punishment, then Akasha even some of the Allahu Anhu he said yeah oh Prophet of ALLAH ask ALLAH that would be one of them. And he said you will one of them. So they excite that as evidence of an intercession of Shiva. Because he said yeah Rasul Allah make dua for me. They will be one of them. He said you're one of them. So here Okasha, will the Allah know Allah, Allah am here would have deserved heaven already, but with the dua of the prophets a lot he was selling them he became what
part of that 70,000 So the profit could intercede like that. And others by the way, as the prophets a lot he was sent them for intercession. So we have a request from no sub nomadic or the Allahu Anhu. He said, Oh, Prophet of Allah, intercede for me on the day of judgment. So the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said, a foul he says, I will do. Then Anna said or said, O Messenger of Allah, if I want to find you on the Day of Judgment, where would I find you, he said, Seek me at the Sirat or at the held
where there's another one or other Misa
seek me at the scale, or the how the pool or other Syrah you will not miss me in one of those three spots. So of course, ns nose also lies OLALIA awesome. So in the midst of all of this, and all of humanity's there, if I want to find you, where would I find you? He says this, here or here or there. But the beginning of Hadith, it says what intercede for me and he accepted alayhi salatu salam. There's also the other famous Hadith, where one of the servants of the prophets alloggio Salam. After serving the Prophet, the Prophet asked him, he says, asked me for something, do you want something he has asked me for something. So he said as a Luca modificata Kafeel Jana, he says,
I asked you that I be your companion or for your companionship in Jannah. In another narration, it says, I asked you for your Shiva.
So the prophets of Allah, Allah He was said to me, he said, Are you sure or you want anything else? He said, No, I want this. So he said Allah here. Salatu was Salam far in Neff, seeker bigger, throaty, sujood, assist me against yourself with a lot of frustration. So how do you get ready for it? Right? If you didn't simply say, like it is in the dunya. Right? Whether you deserve it or not, is it if you got it, right, whether you deserve it or not easy you got this position? Because you just asked for it. And you have connections no hear that person asked for it. And the prophets Allah Allah is enemy says you want that to happen in the NFC can assist me by doing what a lot of
voluntary solace. The more that you pray, the more that you will deserve my companionship on my Chifa on the Day of Judgment, so assist me. So that also tells you Allahu Alem that is not simply as some people think. I'm just going to simply ask the Prophet sallahu wa salam, or ask Allah for the prophets, Shiva. And that's it. It's as if it's getting out of jail card, I'll just ask and I'm, I'm just done. I'm exempted, I'm forgiven, right, he will come and save me it doesn't work like that. Because you have to be what worthy of it. So you have to be worthy of it. And if you're not worthy of it, you simply are not going to get it because Allah will not permit it.
So we have two examples of that. One example of that is with the Brahim
Ali his center. So Ibrahim alayhis salam, remember that in the dunya he made is too far for his father, because he promised him that. And then he stopped after knowing that he's not worthy of that forgiveness. But then on the day of judgment,
his father, Abraham's father, will come to Ibrahim.
And he will say help me.
And Ibrahim will tell him did I cannot tell you not to disobey me.
And in the dunya did not tell you just to follow me. And his father will say today I will not disobey me. Today I will not disobey you. Meaning just helped me. So Ibrahim alayhi salam against his connection to his father is strong. So he said, Yeah, Allah you promised me that you will not disgrace me on the day of judgment.
And what is a greater disgrace than for my father to enter hellfire?
Then Allah azza wa jal says, and Allah Azza understands that he wants to comfort Ibrahim, but at the same time, is his father allowed to enter heaven? No. So he says onboard that academic he says look underneath your feet, and he will find the hyena kind of smeared with feces and all
As the dad would have turned his father into that image, and then it will be taken and will be thrown in hellfire. So Allah Azza did not want Ibrahim to suffer. And he did not want him to be disgraced. Because if he sees his father being dragged to hellfire, it will affect him. And if he sees his father in hellfire, it will hurt him. So what did he do? Subhanallah with Allah He changed the form of his father into an animal. And that animal is thrown in hellfire. So Did he accept Abraham's intercession?
No. Right? So it tells you that it does not doesn't mean that it doesn't matter what I do. The Prophet will save me. It doesn't work like that. Right? You have to be worthy of it. Also, in another Hadith as in the Sahaba, he says Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He says, I asked Allah's permission to visit my mother's grave. And he permitted me and I asked him to give me permission to ask for her forgiveness. And he did not permit me. Right. So even his mother saw a lot he was sitting right he was not permitted to ask that she'd be forgiven. So that tells you that you have to establish what to get get the intercession of the prophets a lot. He said, you have to establish to
hate La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, and if there is no schicke, then the person that person deserves the intercession of Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam but if there is Sherk not for you. So let's establish another point here. Are we allowed to ask the prophets Allah Allahu Allah who was sitting in for intercession?
Now, it will say it depends.
If he's alive, you can ask him. Right. And we have evidence that we cited the sahabi asked him for his intercession on the day. So if he's alive, you can on the Day of Judgment when you see him, you can.
Now when he's dead, can you ask him? No, you can't. You can't
tell you. Why is that? You say? Because the prophets Allah, Allahu Allah, you said them, right? If you go to his grave, and ask him, does he hear you?
No, he doesn't. Okay? No dead person, even when you say, the martyrs are alive. Like it's an other worldly life. And the prophets are alive and other worldly life, right here, or here, in what sense? They're dead. But here, in what sense, other worldly life, but that other worldly life is disconnected from your life here. So they cannot hear you. And you cannot hear them. You don't hear what is happening to them, right? And they don't hear what is happening to you. They don't know what is happening with you. So even if you go and stand right close to somebody's grave, they're not going to know what you're saying to them. And we have evidence of that, which is that the Sudan,
Suriname upon the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam is delivered to him through whom an angel doesn't come directly to him. Even if you are in Medina next to the grave, saying sallallahu alayhi wa salam, he does not hear that from you. It goes through directly the same route than anybody else goes through through a
an angel of Allah azza wa jal, hotels, Muhammad sallahu wa salam, so and so gave you some answer.
Otherwise, he does not hear you directly. So if you go and you say, oh, Prophet of Allah, intercede for me, he does not hear you. That's one
second of all, right? Did the Sahaba of the Prophet sallahu wa salam do anything similar to that? So during his life, yes, they asked him but after his life, would they go to the grave? And they say, oh prophet of Allah, intercede for me that I've been in? They would say all prophets of Allah, intercede for me. Did they do any of that? No, they absolutely did not do any of that. So someone may say, I'm gonna get someone may say, I'm I'm of the opinion, as some scholars have concluded, no, that the dead can't hear you.
That the dead can hear you. I'm of that opinion. And if that's the case, and the Prophet salallahu Salam can hear me, then what's the problem with me going directly to the grave and asking the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam for intercession? What's the problem with it?
Yeah, first of all right. You want it you want to tell
you right, right. So their actions right Yanni. For instance, the Prophet sallahu wa salam says either mattogno Adam and Kata Anna Lou Ilam. In Salah when the son of Adam dies, his actions stop except for three things, these three things or three things he lives in the dunya so that person is not going to make dua for you. Right is not going to react to you
or to your request. That's one. The second of all, a second of it is that even if you argue that he's still alive in his grave, and he can hear me and I can ask him, we say, the action of the Sahaba precludes that type of request. Because if they knew that that is the case, and they knew that this is permissible, at least one would have done it, since none of them have done it. None of them have done it. It tells you that this action is illegitimate. And if you go back to what Omar Radi Allahu Anhu did when they wanted to ask for ring
right? And he said when he brought a bass, the uncle of the prophets, a lawyer, so this is after the prophets passing. He brings it up purse and he says yeah, Hola. Hola. Hola. In Hakuna either a debonair net that was Solu la cabina. Bina we're in another was slow in a call. Yo maybe Amina Vina, yeah, Abbas conferred.
He says he or Allah will use to that when when there is a drought. Net tawassul we would ask you through our prophets, Allahu Allah, us Allah. And today we're asking you through the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, or Abbas stand up and pray, mean make dua. Right. So if Omar
understood, that the prophet is alive in his grave, He can hear me and he could make dua, why not go directly to
say, The Who, who better than the Prophet salallahu Salam, then the Muslims would have developed the habit since the sahaba. If there is drought, if there is war, if there is catastrophe, go to the grave and ask the prophets Allah Listen, oh, to come what a habit, an established habit. When they never did this. It tells you that that's not a legitimate act. And that's what Omar did. And when Omar did that, all the Sahaba were witnesses. He says, When the Prophet was alive, we would ask for rain through him. How did the ask for rain? They didn't see Allah, because of Mohammed send us rain. They see we'll go to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and several Hadith talking about that. Go to the
Prophet and see your Allah there was a drought, there was famine, there is this and that pray for us, He will pray that is there to was sold through the dua of the Prophet sallahu wa salam. So when the Prophet passes away,
they said, Who's left the uncle of the prophets, Allah to sell them so you go and make two, right? So asking the prophets of Allah to send them directly from the grave right is not permissible. And worse than that, if a person is far away, and they say, oh Prophet of ALLAH given us, give us a Shiva, or prophet of Allah Israeli, or we need your chef, our Prophet of Allah as if he's talking to the prophets of Allah Alayhi Salatu was Salam. So we asked him, Do you believe that the Prophet can hear you?
And if he says, yes, what does that mean? That is schicken Allah azza wa jal, if he says that I'm here asking the prophet for that, and the Prophet can hear me, he's ascribing to the Prophet what supernatural abilities. And when you do that, what is the difference now between Allah as Odin and a prophet that you say, whatever I say, wherever I am, he can hear me. Alright, so you're ascribing to the Prophet divine abilities. And I'm emphasizing this point, because we have still till today those who will write poems, and those who will turn those into nasheeds. And they will ask the prophet for Shiva. Right.
Right. And is that allowed? No, that's not allowed. So it's interesting also like to note, that the Prophet sallallaahu Salam, who, who said, he mentioned his shift, and the value of his shift, he never really in a hadith said, Ask Allah azza wa jal for my Shiva directly. He didn't say that. He didn't say any, because if it's important
to do it that way, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Who here would have said, make part of your regular dua Allah give me the Shiva Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, although that is permissible.
That is permissible. You can raise your hands and you see Allah give me the Chacao Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam. That is permissible. But the prophets Allah said and did not direct you to do this.
Go through the Sunnah he didn't say do this. What did he say? They say do something to earn the Shiva. Don't just ask for it. Do something to earn the Shiva for instance, and this is something that is easy. That is when you hear the event. And you see Alohomora bahagi downward the term I was so that you'll call it Mohamed and we'll see that all for the overthrow Mohamed Mahmoud Allah. He says if you say this, you will earn my Shiva on the Day of Judgment. Right? He didn't just say as he says, do this, turn the Shiva so Alohomora bad he doubted term. Allah who is the rub of this complete call for the Salah was Salah to call him and the established Salah Timo Hamedan Allah was
We'll see that's all for Lila grant Muhammad Allah sila Lucia is the highest level in Jana. Well for the law is honor. Well bathroom are common Muhammad Allah the water and send him the praise station that you have promised him. And what is that freezed station. That's the greatest Shiva. So you're praying and that Allah Zota does what he gives him an vasila the greatest level in Jannah, the highest level and also to her for him to be honored. And for him to have that greatest intercession. He says, If you keep doing that, you will earn my Shiva.
This is how the prophets Allah alayhi salam directs people to earn his Shiva in addition to what praying a lot of Sooners and establishing to hate and ridding yourself of shift and also we have another one which is may not be available for everybody but at least you can ask Allah for it. Which is he said Alia Salatu was Salam Minnesota I mean come Ania muda been Medina Tifa Lea fan for in the short aluminium motif here he says, If any over on a view can can die in Medina, let him die there because I intercede for those who die in Medina. Right. So there's a special status for those who live and those who die in Medina if Allah favors you with dying in Medina, may Allah azza wa jal
give us that even if you don't ultimately achieve it, but at least if you ask for it and you wish for it, who knows? Maybe Allah azza wa jal will give you that, as if you know you're a prisoner who died there and Allah azza wa jal is the Most Generous of the generous.
Now, why did people cannot have problem with the shefa we said like kind of people kind of diverged when it comes to the intercession of the prophets, Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam. So there are some people who denied intercession altogether. So why did they deny the session altogether? The Hawaii bridge and you know, they copied them. And if you don't know the kawatche, and the martyrs, Allah, you don't really need to worry about them. But they are also the people who believe that if a person commits a major sin, they become disbelievers.
And if a person enters hellfire, he never leaves it.
So they came to that conclusion based on a reading of the Quran and believes that beliefs that they have, so a person if he ever gets into hellfire,
what what happens? stays there forever. There is no forgiveness right? So either go to heaven, or you go to hell, and if you go to hell, you stay there forever. So when they hear the Hadith about the Prophet sallahu wa salam taking people out of hellfire, they say no to that is that does that does not make sense? Okay, that does not make sense. And there was an incident to one of one of the Sahaba of the prophets of Allah, Allah wa salam. And you were sitting and he was discussing the Shiva of the Prophet. And then somebody came who was visiting from Iraq or similar distant lands. And he had heard him talking about the Shiva and he said, Oh companions of the Prophet. What are
these things that you're talking about? In the reading? Doesn't Allah azza wa jal say in the Quran, Quran, lemma orada Yehuda Dohmen hell are you will see her whenever they want to exit and leave it they will be brought back into it meaning hellfire. So when whatever whenever they try to escape, they will be stopped and returned. There's an Allah say that. And that's it also Allah Subhana Allah to Allah say in the command to 3d Nora, zeta. When you put a person in hellfire You have disgraced him. So how come you're saying that people can leave? Why Allah is saying otherwise. So that companion he said, he says, Do you know or have you heard about Allah Muhammad Muhammad mentioned in
the Quran? He says yes, he says this MACOM mode Allah Muhammad is the intercession of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he will take people out of hellfire that tells you here a couple of important things. One is that a person could miss read the Quran even though he's reading the entire Quran.
Right? Either because the person has an established belief in his heart. So he's reading the whole Quran based on that belief, or somehow he's missing something that is vital.
And that tells you again about the importance of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because if something is not really 100% clear for you, in the Quran, the Sunnah comes in clarifies it, it removes any doubt. So it's important to hold both of these things together and not say I'll just read the Quran and instead it on its own, you will definitely feel so you need the support of the Sunnah. And you need also to ask, because he may think that you understand it fully. And he may understand that you have the right belief. But then you hear from a scholar by
based on evidence, know that what you believe is wrong, how come and there is this and that for it, he tells you the other evidence, and it's important here to pull all of the ideas together. And the ideas and the Hadith together, make it clear and complete. Right?
So that's a deviation and understanding of the Shiva. And this is probably why you want Muhammad no humble, had emphasized it in the book, because some people have denied it. And what is interesting here, Subhan Allah is, especially when it comes to El martes, ILA and metaphyseal are described by some as the rationalists. Right? And they're not really the rationalist. Because reason, sound reason does not contradict revelation. So they really are people of desire, not really rationalists. But if we just simply go with that designation of them being the rationalist, the people who use their mind and value reason, and typically, what do you associate with people, especially today with
people who use the reason and use their mind that they are typically open minded? And they're typically humanists or humanitarian that they're kind, right? Or as the opposite? Are the religious, the religious or what? They're the ones who are not open minded, so they're closed minded, and they're really harsh and very judgmental. But Subhanallah it just tells you about that. That dichotomy, that contrast is absolutely false. Because when you come to Allah, sunnah will Gemma we're saying what? There is an intercession where everybody who says La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah will eventually leave Hellfire whereas the rationalists are saying what? Know if you
commit a major sin you will be forever in hellfire. So the people of Russia are the people of Allah sunnah. Right? And the people of cruel to orthros who are rationalists, right? So it just tells you that that that contrast, especially in the modern times, is a false contrast and that the people who follow the Quran and Sunnah are and should be the most merciful, not those who use the reason, right?
Basically, just only rely on their reason only rely on their mind. Another thing Insha Allah we asked before we leave this topic is why is it that Allah azza wa jal, right allows intercession and that process of people coming and the angels coming and asking Allah for relief for people in hellfire, whereas Allah azza wa jal could save them directly. Say, Allah could just take them out directly, but why does He allow this interaction this process to take place? So the first, you know, answer is Allah does as he wants. And it's important to always keep that in mind. Because we're not asking to question we're asking to see if there's something to be learned from it. But suppose that
I couldn't find on my own wisdom behind that, that does not really affect my Iman, I do not understand it, but understand that later. So Allah does as he wants. So if you don't understand it, it doesn't matter. But we say that there is some benefit, and there are some lessons in that, which is what first, Allahu Allah is that it does show the honor of those who are involved in the Shiva
and their virtue. So the honor of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is evident when no one can do it except him. The honor of all the prophets of Allah who come to save their people and intercede on their behalf, the honor of the angels, the honor of the martyrs, the honor of the righteous, the righteous who in this dunya may have been anonymous, or mistreated, or harassed, and the disbelievers used to laugh at them. And people would laugh Iman used to mock them and belittle them. On the Day of Judgment, you really see their station and their virtue. So Allah azza wa jal pays them back, or Allah azza wa jal honors them, because in the dunya, they didn't get that honor. But
everybody gets to see it on the Day of Judgment. So that's one to honor those who are involved in Chifa. Right, and to show in front of their friends and families and everybody who had knew them. This is the person that you used to look down on, now see what they're doing. So that's one Alajuela. The second benefit that you can get from it is that the prophets of Allah and those who also are following on their footpath are doing on the hereafter, what they were doing in the dunya
right. So what was kind of the main preoccupation of the prophets of Allah in the dunya is to save people from what Hellfire day and night. They preach, they give Dawa, they make do, they struggle they fight everything that they're doing is to save every pastor.
about a person from hellfire, that's what they lift for in the dunya. So when they go in the era, it's the same mission is exactly the same mission. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as people are passing through the set off Allahumma Limsa lumea Allah save them. Yeah, Allah saved them. And Allah, the prophets, Allah was setting them yet it does not settle when people want to go to hellfire until he can get as many of them out. So that's what the prophets of Allah do. And that's what the righteous also do as well, that they can't leave their friends, they cannot leave their families, they cannot leave their loved ones behind. They want to save everybody. So if you want to
be following the footsteps of the prophets of Allah azza wa jal be in the dunya as you should be in the alpha, which is what trying to save people and trying to help them.
So in the earth here, alright, the honor, there is what you're trying to help as many people as possible, and save as many people as possible. You should also do that, while you're alive here.
Try to save as many people as possible and try to aid as many people as possible and support as many people as possible. That's how the prophets of Allah lived and died. And that's what they will do in the next life. And if you really want to follow them, this is what you're supposed to do in this life as well. That's the mission of the prophets of Allah and a masala dosa.
And also it shows you the Rama of Allah.
Because this is all part of the Rama of Allah. By the way, if what Allah allows somebody to leave hellfire, he allows it because he's merciful, and nobody forces him subhanho wa Taala to take anybody of hellfire that he does not want but it shows you the Wrath of Allah azza wa jal that he gets some people out and then some people out and then some people out until those who remain are all the ones who disbelieved that Allah has voted completely. But as long as you have a mustard seed and ant like of iman in your heart, you will exit hellfire. So it also shows you that Allah azza wa jal wants all of those people out of hellfire, he just in this process of Shiva, he employs those
prophets and angels and the righteous for the reason that we've mentioned. But it all goes back to Allah subhanho wa taala, who had allowed Shiva who had appointed people for Shiva and he accepts it from them. So it all goes back to him. Subhan Allah Allah because Allah does want to be merciful with everybody except the problem is when we don't accept that mercy, Allah Allah
Okay, insha Allah, should we stop here?
Because if we open the other topic, it would be a bit long, right? Yeah, I see people nodding Yeah. Just let's see, Inshallah, if you have questions. Yeah, please.
when we trace this crazy
either the profits or even the, what I do over the hour, whatever they call it, when we trade that to give the Sahaba did not click Yes. Okay. And the prophets of Allah.
The here's how to do it, at what stage in our history, trades. Culture.
Now, I mean, I don't know if I can pinpoint the time, right and the place when that exactly happened. But you could start seeing deviations right in Al Qaeda early on. And part of that deviation is that attachment, as you said to people, right, which is something that is very human. So rather than attachment to Allah azza wa jal saying that I'll rely on Allah azza wa jal for forgiveness and for supporting that people will start being attached to other teachers around them. And if those teachers are not fit or not pious enough, they'll accept the power that comes from their students. So later on, right, so we're talking about later centuries, and that's also part of
the deviation in the Shiva, there will be those who will claim that on the Day of Judgment, right, I'll pitch my tent. And when I pitch my tent, all of those who follow me will be saved on the Day of Judgment. So you just need to follow me that sounds that the claim is a claim of intercession. And he's claiming without kind of validity and without evidence that everybody will be saved as long as you follow me. Right? So those study cars or those paths from the 500 Hadrian onward right, have kind of intensified that belief in that this shape and this Willie will intercede for me. So if I want his intercession, I better listen to him. I better call on him. I better imitate him about to
follow him blindly.
So it will allow Adam when exactly it started. It's hard for me to pinpoint, but it's a general tendency that people get attached to people slowly and that attachments develops into something that is great. So one thing that we mean I forgot to emphasize of why calling on the prophets allottee was salam directly for Shiva or other people. For Shiva is a problem is that
that call when it's not appropriate when it's not sound is a gateway towards schicke in Allah azza wa jal because Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran why are we doing I mean doing Allah he murder you do Ramallah and Pharaoh homeboy coluna ha Allah issue for our owner and Allah, they say they worship other than Allah azza wa jal, what does not bring them harm or benefit. And they will say those will intercede for us on the way Allah azza wa jal. So Allah says, Call her to not be on Allah Habima Allah Allah misses, are you telling Allah about what he does not know? Because these people are not are these people or idols or what have you or not intercessors but they say we worship them because
they'll intercede for us. So like with the people of knowing, right, Ali Salam were in the beginning, the pious died, and they just made images of them, just to remind them, that they should worship Allah better, more fervently. And then later on, they started to worship those particular images. So the deviation starts small. And then it progresses. When exactly, Allahu Allah. I don't know I cannot. But what you could see today is directly asking the prophets of Allah it was an unfortunate for and arguing that this is legitimate, right? Whereas in the early generations, you don't really see that as a practice alone. I'm sorry, as a practice, let alone as a common practice,
you don't see it as a practice. So it's clearly a common and modern, non modern, but Yanni it's a modern practice that is deviation Lloyd.
depth for example, we find when we visit the city,
many people visit the grid. So this led to visit the grid is there what's the exhibition?
So visiting the grave of the prophets Lolly who seldom No, it's recommended if you're in the masjid so if you're in the masjid, it's recommended and the evidence of it is the actions of the sahaba. So in general, right visiting any grave is recommended right because zoodle award for inner to the Cucurbita Hello, visit the graves. It reminds you of the hereafter and the visiting the grave of the prophets Allah wa salam and giving him Salam. And then afterwards after but Abu Bakr and Omar were buried giving salam to Abu Bakr and Omar, that's the action of the sahaba. So it's absolutely recommended, especially if you're someone who is traveling and visiting the masjid and while you're
in the masjid, you give Salam to the Prophet. But if you're a person who is living in Medina, like as Imam Malik and Rahim, Allah would say, if you're a person who is living in Medina, he hated and dislike the fact that you would say salam, every time you come to the masjid, he says, we then now witness that that was the habit of those who are before us. Right? So it's different for a person who is traveling because this is an opportunity for you to go and see salon for the profits a lot. You send them once or twice, where as a person who is living there you come and pray in the masjid and leave, come and pray and leave once in a while you give Salah he says that's fine, but you make
that a habit. He disliked that because he said, we did not inherit that practice. So that's why it's important to know what was inherited from the Sahaba that being the religion of Allah was good. Yeah, good.
Still have this?
No, Zack Aloka. Yeah, that's true. So he has one of the benefits of the hadith of Ns where he as the prophets a lot who said no, where can I find you on the Day of Judgment and he said, on the bridge, the spirit or the scale the reason or the how the full A says so one of the benefit is that when the more that you know, the more that you'd be ready and you will retain that knowledge when you are resurrected. So then you could go take that knowledge and you could do something with it. Right? So all the all the Hadith of the prophets Allah listen except some that Allah will choose for you not to remember. Right? But other than that, you will retain that that knowledge and you could use it
right to your benefit on the Day of Judgment just like That's why NS asked him Where would I find you simply because he knew that I can use that information. Zach Allah here that's good.
Anyone else in sha Allah
Now I'm so ah, Yanni that there's a Hadith of the Prophet sallahu wa salam, right where
somebody's son died early. And he was very sad and he said Allah, His Salatu was Salam. He says, Would you prefer that he would be alive today? Or would you prefer that when you go on the day of judgment, He will be waiting for you at the gate of paradise to hold your hand and walk with you into Jannah which one would you prefer? So you said I prefer the second and that consoled him right I definitely that consoled him What are the lower? No, because when you lose someone that you love so much, then what do you do with that loss, but when the profits a lot, he said and tells you will be waiting for you in Jannah and he will take you by the hand and you will enter then definitely
that will help you immensely with that pain. So that's what we can say that the children right the children of the when they die young, the Muslim children will low and number eight, as it says in the Hadith, they'll be in heaven. Muslim children they will be in heaven, Muslims of the disbelievers they disagree about them but what Allahu Allah Allah Allah, I'm the accurate opinion that they will be in heaven as well. Allahu Allah, and they will be heaven and there's a disagreement, but the more accurate opinion Allah Allah is that both the children of Muslims and the children of non Muslims who did not hit puberty right they will be in Jannah or lower
it's so that child will be in Jannah and if you're patient with the loss of that child you will follow them right so that child will be in gender because he's young and his word Muslim for Muslim parents but we said even if not but with with a parent is patient with the loss of such a child and they will be
yeah yeah yeah
How do you find them at the museum? I don't know how
you could seek them isn't right you see like where is the museum right? Because then probably then you will know where it is and then you can you can find them there right? If not the hell because he gave him three options right? So if you can't find here then you will find here and then you will find them. Yeah.
And mahalo Muhammad, Muhammad is only his says only his son Muhammad Muhammad is that big intercession for Allah azza wa jal to start judging humanity no one else will will assume that position so it's only his and as isn't was Sierra is only his the highest level is only his
and ibis and ibis and Ibis profits yet something
we wish that you could see the
word the end of the day. He says that you just have asked how you actually meant and
ablution marks are basically a horses
Jones a horse
would you say that that would also be like a way
I guess the proper
push up or something like that right? No, this is exactly as you said like how does the prophets Allah Salam recognizes OMA but the traces of will do so that's exactly what what you that's what you're asking right so it's a trace is a will do that will make the home of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam distinct and that's how the prophets Allah said will recognize those who did he did not see but there's still part of his OMA right now.
And he let me just see if there's nobody else here and we are it goes to you
so both right, so if a person is a major sinner, and now they deserve to go to hellfire, so some would not even go into hellfire because the Prophet would intercede that they would never enter it. So they will go directly to Jana. And some who know would still need to enter it right? So maybe like a heavier sinners right, have you crimes, so those will enter and after a period of purification, then they will be allowed to exit who the intercession of the prophets Allah Salam and the intercession of others, as we said, there are other prophets and angels and you know, the pious, also all of them will intercede. Yeah. So it's a common intercession, right.
But hamdulillah there are a lot of chances to
go through gender but still with that right there will be people who will populate hellfire. Yeah so yeah Annie you know so do your best so that you don't you don't even need to go to go to hellfire right? Yeah, I think it seems that you've done a lot of behind me so inshallah so we promised you will talk about at the jail but it's not going to happen today so next week insha Allah get to talk about the jail and as of no Maria allihies Silla insha Allah subhana Colombia Hamberger shadow Allah
