so we're still in chapter number 42
Babu Sakura till mode the agony and difficulties of death and we started this chapter last time we met and we have a couple of Hadith insha Allah to finish it.
the first Hadith will begin with for tonight, then the chapter is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says yet about Almita filata three things follow the dead. That is the precession the dead person until they get buried three things follow him. Fire God with Na. We have our head ma who our head is to come back and one remains with him. Yet Whoa, whoa, uh, hello, who were MaryLu who were MLO he is followed by his family, and his money and his deeds. Fair Joe Morello. So his family and his wealth they had back way up ka Amador. And his deeds stay with them.
So the prophets of Allah, Allah wa Salam is telling us that that happens with every dead person. When someone dies, naturally, he's to be buried.
And he should, we should hasten the burial of the dead person.
Now, the family is natural that the family would go, they want to bury him, they want to take care of him, they want to stay there around the grave as long as he's being questioned, because the dead person in that period feels the presence of people around him. Right? If someone buried and that initial period, not later on, but then initial period, when he's first buried, and the angels of Allah descend, and they ask him questions that time he feels the presence of family around or people around. So the family follows.
And they have an emotional attachment to the dead.
Now, wealth also can follow not everybody has money to follow him to the grave. And some people are poor.
But how? And why does your money follow you to the grave? Well, in the sense that the vehicle that transports you could be your money?
The clothes on the family and the bodies of your family members? Is your money. The money that they have in their pockets? Is your money. So that goes with you? I companies you to the grave, but does it stay?
No, it is it even recommended advisable permissible for that money to stay with you in the grave. There are some people right and other
practices and other faiths, right? Where when they were buried, they bury valuable things with them, right? Their favorite clothes and their jewelry and this and that. And some people even believe that they'll use these things in the afterlife, the money, the food, the favorite toys, right? They'll use these things. Because if they don't have it, it's they're missing something. They'll be lonely, so they can use this in the afterlife. Do we believe that?
No, obviously, absolutely. You don't have any access to these worldly possessions. So even you know,
it's mentioned, I think it's from one of the Sahaba or the Allah unknown, which is that when he said when he shroud me, shroud me in something simple, don't go and buy something expensive or new, necessarily, because the living is more worthy of new things.
But that the dead person does he feel whether this shroud is new or old? No, it's going to be eaten by the way it's just going to wither does the dead person know or feel like my spot here is the best spot the grave. And there are some people also who when they bury their dead, it's important for them to choose the best spot with the dead person recognize whether this is on top of a hill or not overlooking a valley or not. Whether it's in a garden or not, doesn't matter. No it doesn't. So all these things were
write all these things are for the living the dead don't care about it. So the money heads back.
And the family they have to head back no matter how much they love that dead person, they have to head back. What is the only thing that stays with them
are the deeds, they enter with him in his grave meaning what you've done of good or evil. That is the currency in the afterlife.
So Rasul Allah is Allah, Allah said, and tells us in a hadith that when the person after he's being questioned, a person will come to him.
And that person will be handsome.
So this person will well that will ask who are you? He says, I am your good deed.
But they take that
shape. I'm your good deed. So his deeds keep him company. Right? We might think to ourselves, he's alone down there. He's but his good deeds keep him company, till Allah revives him.
And if the person is evil, what happens is the opposite, right? So, first thing comes and he says, you know, our older we learn from this, you're such so ugly. Imagine you're alone in the grave, and it's so dark, and it's terrifying. I imagine yourself moving to a new city, in a new apartment, new don't know anybody. how anxious Are you?
Very right. So imagine if your neighbor is terrible. Oh, SubhanAllah. That's That's torture. So imagine now that if you're in the grave, and it's the first night, and somebody so ugly comes in the car with we love what is this? What are you doing here as I am your bad deeds, and they keep him perturbed, anxious till the Day of Judgment.
So your Amman follows you.
And so this tells you, among the many things that it tells you that it is actual your deeds are more valuable than these other two are
right or wrong? They're more valuable than your money or not.
Right? Because why? Because your money only works as long as you're alive. Your deeds help you wait here and when you die.
Right? They help you here with Allah azza wa jal. And if you do righteousness, they give you ease. They give you comfort, your doula is accepted, you get something back for the good things that you do. And when you die, they help you inside your grave when there is no one else to help you. No one else.
Family can do this. And your money can do this. So your deeds are more valuable than your family and you're more more valuable than money.
So Subhanallah, one of the key things that that should teach us is to value the righteousness that we do more than the money that we earn.
So consider for instance, two scenarios, on a particular day, you get a bonus of $500 Unexpectedly, let's say, how happy will that make you?
Very right, I have $500 Extra, I did not expect and I could do this and that with that you will be happy for the rest of the
play. What if on that particular day or on a different day? Allah azza wa jal enabled you to read 20 pages of the Quran, would you be as happy?
It will, you would not be right. Knowing us and how we are today? Would we be happy? Would we consider that Allah Al Hamdulillah this was a wonderful day. No, because I got $500 It's okay. And Hamdulillah. At Sanjana, we thank Allah for it. Not because I bought a ticket, because I'm going to travel this in there. Again, that is an enema.
But it's because what I read 20 pages of the Quran and not everybody does that. Not everybody is given that at sometimes even you realize from yourself, I can't do that every day. Some of us do.
But so no one of those days you know that you could do extra good. You should be more happy with that, than the $500 or the $1,000 because that's more valuable.
So we can sit, consider a day when we praise Allah and worship Allah and are close to him a win.
And be happy because of that, when be happy of that, because of that blessing. Hamdulillah I gave sadaqa today I helped my neighbor today. It helped my parents today. hamdulillah there was some temptation today I stayed away from it. That is a win. And you praise Allah for it. And you expect that that is more valuable than any other money you have to tell yourself that the only money that you could have earned or will be given to you. That's how obeying Allah becomes precious.
because you attach value to it, and you know what it's going to lead to? Because why is money valuable?
Think about why is money valuable because of the paper?
Why? Because you could do what with it
buys something that it means something else.
I could buy something else, it's that thing that makes you happy, not the money. Money is paper, right? But I can buy something that makes me happy. Right? So where does the value of money come from? What it can what you can do with it. So when you attach value to the good deeds, that you have Hamdulillah, maybe this 20 pages of the Quran, maybe Buddha that I pray every morning, just to work as, but it's a win, maybe that thing is gonna buy you that house in Jannah. How valuable is that? So you should feel very satisfied, not arrogant, there's a difference, very happy and very satisfied when you do something good. And you see Allah give me more of that, and consider that day to be a
win. So maybe right, and somebody doesn't have anything to do for that day. And some people say, Well, I'm gonna just play games and you know, go online, or social media or this or that, and maybe somebody else who will say, I'll read Quran, I'll pray.
That is a win. Regardless of how poor or regardless of how rich you are, that is a win for that day. And you praise Allah for it, and you continue to ask Allah to give you more of it.
And maybe also one thing, insha, Allah to,
to understand from this hadith is that separation from what you love is inevitable, and it has to happen. So anticipate it.
And don't be so emotionally invested in the world around you.
Right? So if you know that, as it says in the Hadith, that your money will separate from you, and it will not stay with you. Should you be so invested in the things in the money around you that it's loss or separation is going to kill you. That is, I mean, this car means everything to me. If I lose it, I'm going to die. I mean, maybe I exaggerate, right. But as an example, if I lose this car, I'm gonna die.
If I lose my house, I'll die
for you. You are going to lose it anyway. Right? Right, you're going to lose it anyway. Why should it kill you?
Sooner or later, this is not yours. If you keep that in mind, it's loss becomes tolerable.
Not easy, nothing easy. But if you know that you're going to lose this thing goes sooner or later. If you actually lose it, what happens is I was expecting that this will happen. It shouldn't make you depressed. It shouldn't make you sad. It should make you a realist.
What devastates us is when we think that this thing will last forever, and we will last forever for it.
But that's not the case. You will lose family members or they will lose you sight. So devastating, terrible, yes. But when you know that that's going to happen, you know that there is life after that. And Allah could give you patience, because separation has to happen. Allah will give you patience, Allah will give you the strength, and you can move on. And you can continue with Nila xojo, but it doesn't devastate you. Why? Because he didn't invest all of your heart in one person.
Right? Because some people in some of us. And this is really because we're talking about recall, I only always want to kind of remind myself and all of us that we are really talking about the heart. Wherever we are talking about these Hadith and softening the heart, that if the heart is invested in one thing, right and in only one thing, it is devastated by its loss.
But when the heart is invested in Allah azza wa jal meaning attached to Allah, it cannot experience that devastation because Allah is always there. When you are relying on or you are attached to your good deeds, then your good deeds are always with you. No one can take them away from you. No one can take them away from you. They're yours. But if your heart is with money, what happens if you lose that money?
Empty devastated if your heart It was with family only that is some mothers are like that. Some parents are like that, like my entire existence is my kids. So what happens if God forbid you were to
lose one or some or all of them? Will you have the patience?
That is a severe test right? That is as if you're dead. But if you know that separation has to happen, then you know that
sooner or later all of a separate and sooner or later all of us meet again.
Right. So your deeds, your deeds, your deeds, they stay with you. Your deeds give you patience when you experience loss, your deeds will Unlight in your grave, your deeds are the thing that should be the closest to your heart. And when you find your heart, empty or agitated, you say I need more
good deeds to calm my heart and comfort it

the following hadith is a narration of no Omar Radi Allahu Anhu. And he said that the messenger Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, either Mata Hadoken Henri de la Himachal do who do attend what I see here
in Manawa ImageNet, he says when one of you dies
in the morning, and then the afternoon, early morning later that day, his abode his house, will be presented to him either in a novel in Jahannam in hellfire or in Jana, for your pod, which will be saved to him, her the maca Dukkha had the two bath it says this is your place, this is your home, this is where you will be until you resurrect resurrected, meaning when you're resurrected. That's where you're gonna go. I
mean, this happens in the grief.
And that's part of the blessings and the punishment in the grave. So the grave, right. And we started talking about how a person when they first enter into the grave, they be questioned, right? And the question of the grave is, who is your Rob? And what is your religion? And who is what do you used to say about that person, Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
If the person is righteous, they were blessed. The person is not
punished. Part of the punishment and the blessings in the grave part is not the whole thing. But part of that punishment. And blessing is what he says here, your auto Allahi Mikado, meaning you will see your place in Jana, or your place in hellfire twice a day,
twice a day, right. So like a portal will open between the grave and the person in it. And his house, or we could say his palace in Jannah. In the morning, you see how the Mikado, this is your house. When you resurrected, you will be there. When you arrive on the Day of Judgment. You will be there. You see it boudoir in the beginning of the day, and I see you at the end of the day.
Right. And the one who is not righteous sees his fleece were
in Jahannam this is where you're gonna go seize it in the morning and sees it later that day. And that happens every day.
Why do they see it?
Because we say that that's part of the blessings and punishment. That anticipation that knowledge of where you're going to go? If you go, No, you're going to Janna, you can wait, that itself is an error. Right? Because you can say you can imagine again, let's try to imagine in experiences that are familiar to us. Suppose that you're a person who likes to travel, who likes to travel.
You like to travel right? So what if I say for instance, that you want a free trip.
And in six months, you're going to be traveling. And every day I show you this is what you're going to see there. This is where you're going to go. This is when you're going to eat
that increases your happiness right every day. Your anticipation your pleasure grows every day. Even on days when you don't feel that great when I showed you these things I said yes. What's coming is so great. That's nine this is these are blessings. So the person who's being blessed in addition, right to getting some of the smell of paradise, some of the atmosphere of paradise. He knows Oh, that's my place. That's my place. That's what's it gonna look like? I'm gonna be there. That's name
and the person who's being punished just knowing that he's going to end up in hellfire in that place. That's misery added to their misery. So we believe that the dead will be either blessed
store punished in the grave.
And part of what they do have the profits a lot to sell and part of his job is to seek Allah's protection from the punishment in the grief. Right. And he sold a lot he was seldom once passed by a grave. And he said in the Humala you at the event he says they're being punished the two graves they were being punished. They're not being punished for something that is big, something that is great and homophobic and I am shipping Amina.
As for one he was a tattletale, meaning he used to spread gossip and secrets and tell others about others mistakes in the NEMA.
One mil Alpha cannula, Istituto minute bowl Hola, yes, 10 zero minute bowl as for the other, he did not cleanse himself from urine or conceal himself on urinating, meaning these things are what small, right? Like to us. You don't cleanse yourself, you don't purify yourself on urinate. That is a reason for a person to be punished in the grief because it affects what
you have to harm. How could you have without without that these are things that should be learned. This is not just a matter of Fick because that affects your Tahara it affects your Salah, it affects your shoe, it affects your Eman, it's all of that. So if you're serious about your Salah, you'll be serious about how you're praying and how and whether your prayer is accepted or not. And the other person who is spreading gossip and telling about people what other people secret and what have you that is very destructive, you can easily stop it. But he did not and that is a reason for the person to be punished in the grave. So you know a person should believe that there is punishment there. And
the prophets Allah Sydenham said In another Hadith, he said I could hear the punishment and if, if possible, I could ask Allah xojo That you would hear it as well. But if humans would hear that, what would happen to us? Right if whenever you pass by graves, you would hear people punish them, that what would happen to us there will be terrifying. So we ask Allah azza wa jal to protect us from punishment in the grave. And when you visit the graves, you should imagine all of these things. So it's not just dead bodies there. Okay, they're not dead, just dead bodies. There are people who had lives who are now inhabiting, inhabiting these
small areas and either it's a piece of paradise, or either it's a piece of hellfire. Okay, so may Allah azza wa jal, you know, help us to be among those who see their place in heaven, and are blessed because of it, not the other party.
The last Hadith in this particular chapter is the messenger Salatu was Salam. He said Allah, the Cebu. And what for in the home of Bo Isla Mapa demo, he says, Do not insult the dead. For indeed they have met what they did.
Do not bad mouth, say bad things about the dead, for indeed of vO mean they have arrived at what they already did.
Here the messenger is allowed sin and prohibits something which is that when a person dies,
his innocence, he becomes off limits. You don't say bad things about them. You don't insult them.
You don't spread or discuss the bad things that they used to do. Right? In another Hadith. It's it tells us why.
And this hadith X also explains to us or helps us avoid that mistake. And another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Let the super bowl of water for Tula here it says Don't insult the dead. Because if you do that you will harm the living.
now, the dead are not harmed by the bad things that you say not directly anyway, there's an indirect harm that I'll discuss. But a dead person is not going to know the bad things you said about them. So that's not going to hurt them. Right? The Living do, like if you say something bad about someone who's alive when they know about it, that will hurt them. Right?
But there is no connection between you and the dead for them to know what you said about them. So that's not really going to hurt their feelings. But whom does it hurt
their relatives, right? Even if they will what? non Muslims
because you could be talking ill about some non Muslim but their relatives are Muslim, or even they are non Muslim, and their relatives are non Muslim, and there's unnecessary discussion of their behavior or their mistakes and it does hurt the living now
There's an exception for not insulting the dead all talk about it, but it's has to remain as an exception. So, if you will a sub or somebody is that and you know, either you knew about them that they were sinners. So you start discussing it and talking about it,
who gets hurt
the children of that person,
the parents of that person, the siblings, the cousins, they say, look what people are saying about our relative, it affects them and affects their reputation. So when you insult badmouth the dead, you're hurting directly the living
so that's one thing.
You also could hurt the dead indirectly?
How what do the dead people need most from us
to write, they are in desperate need of our do this, if there's anything else that if the best thing that you can give a dead person is do now, if our person who when person dies, I start spreading their mistakes and talking about their wrongdoings when people feel sympathetic to them, and feel that they want to actually give give them to
if I say he stole money from me, if I say that he used to spread corruption, you know, he used to hate he used to steal he used to, he will just develop hatred towards that person, and you would feel that he doesn't deserve your why he was such a bad person, let them rot, let him be punished. Were as we should be what? sympathetic. So if you are discussing oranges and mistakes of the dead, and you're insulting the dead, you're turning people away from them. And when they turn away from them, they're not going to make to have fun. So that way, you are harming the dead. Not because they are hurt because of it. But but there is a loss of do.
And then you think about it, why are you insulting a dead person? He see here, you know, some of the element of it even covers non Muslims, right? Why are you insulting that person?
Unless there's a legitimate religious need not personal agendas or not personal
injury. Right? Not some just something else. So when so somebody is sometimes one point insulted me. Or he took money and did not give it back to me.
Okay, so you may have these
this hatred or this friction towards a dead person,
that last part of the Hadith they have met what they have done
should comfort you at least that whatever bad things they have done, they're seeing right now. You shouldn't be so angry. As if you said they died before. Before I was able to take this and that from them. They died and they did these terrible things to me, they said these terrible things to me. And that makes me angry. And because I'm angry, I'm talking about these things, right? Because that's why if there's personal feud between you and a dead person, that's why you would talk about their mistakes, right? There's just something unresolved, they did that to me, I can't let go of it. The Prophet alayhi salam is saying why if they did something bad, they're already are seeing the
consequence of it.
You shouldn't be angry anymore. That's it. In fact, you should feel sorry for them, you should pity them.
Because now they are meeting the consequence of the bad that they have done.
So the meaning let go of it, let go of it.
Right. I said there are exceptions. What are the exceptions? If the person was
an innovator and you want to warn Be warned people against following their model?
Right? You want to tell people not to do what they did not to take them as an example. That would be an exception.
So for instance, Allah as noted in the Quran, does he not Chris, criticize and condemn Pharaoh, Pharaoh?
For own his dead, right? Does he not condemn a will
does not condemned the people of AED and the mood and the people and all of them are dead, right? So why does he tell us that although that they are dead,
so that we do not what?
We don't become like them. So Allah tells us about their mistakes and about their sins so that we can avoid them.
There was an instance at that time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and that provides that exception other proof further
rule for that exception is what Janessa was passing by.
And the Sahaba praised the man
the praised the dead person,
and he sets a lot he was in the module, but is it as if he is saying, as you say, or it is, as you say, and another Jenessa pass by and they criticize that person, the dead person, and he sets a lot he was Sydenham. wotja, but, as you say, so they said, Oh, Prophet of Allah, what is it what you bet, meaning it is, as you say, he said, Unto him, shahada, Allah, He will argue, are Allah's witnesses on Earth, you praised that person for what you are, but so he is, as you say, when he will be where
he's being blessed, he will take it to be taken to dinner, and you criticize the other person. So it is as you say, meaning what? He is going to be punished for it.
So here the Sahaba in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam praised and criticized.
But why did they praise and criticize? Why did he allow that Salah hottie he was seldom the praises easy to understand a good person that he gets to be praised, easy to understand. But why allow the criticism of that that person, because we understand then that he deserved it. Understand then that this is necessary to say this because the Sahaba when they speak also, especially in the presence of the Prophet salallahu Salam, they select what they say, and they see it for a reason. So say that they said these things so that people will not be fooled by that person, or not follow his model or not think that his lifestyle was good enough. So you say this was wrong.
What he did was wrong, the way he lived does wrong. Not that we're interested in putting people down Bisso button, but simply so that a person knows that's not the way to live. What he did was wrong when he was alive, don't follow him. So if a person is for instance, a Kaffir. And people admire him so much, and he passes, and a lot of Muslims believe that he was so great criticizing him becomes
recommended or compulsory. So that why people know that is a wrong type of life to live. This person is not an example, or a Muslim, right? But if you're here, you have to be careful, you have to be a person of knowledge to do this, right. We're not talking about laypeople talking about personal has significant amount of knowledge that they can act and act wisely. So a Muslim passes away. And a lot of people let's say admire him for the bad reason for all the wrong reasons, then it's important for a person to come out and say no, what they were doing was haram. This was haram this was haram this was haram. We can ask Allah to forgive them we have counted as Allah to have mercy on them, but
they're not a model. So criticism of the dead at times is necessary, so that we guard against what they did. But if that is not needed, then we refrain from it and we don't insult the dead. Right.
Charles so I hope that's clear, right? Exceptions are there. But the norm is that we don't insult the dead whether they are Muslim or not, unless as we said, there's a reason now
chapter number 42 This is Bob with his sword, the blowing in the horn, the blowing in the trumpet the blowing in the horn This is what happens on
the Day of Judgment. This is how people die. And this is how people come back to life.
So Mujahid said are so Ruka Hey, Atul book are sore, which is the horn is like a trumpet.
So we know that the angel is sort of feeler will blow into the into the trumpet. Blow into the horn. Now, we know what a horn looks like, we know what a trumpet looks like, but how exactly that thing looks like how big it is how the sound will be. That's unknown to us.
We know the name we know kind of go have an idea of what that thing is and what it does. You know what a trumpet is right? You will know what it does a horn
that you blow in and sound comes out from the other end.
And that's what the angel is gonna blow in and when he blows into that the first time everyone
on Earth, okay, and then the heavens dies.
And low is another one time and everybody comes back to life. So that's the beginning of the end of this life on Earth and the beginning of the day of judgment.
let's see the first Hadith or two Hadith SEER
so Abu Hurayrah said this is the first Hadith and it's interesting heavy there are a lot of lessons from it.
I will hurry era he said istead Bara
Do nanny two men were insulting each other fighting and insulting each other, a Muslim and a Jew. This was happening in Medina. So there was a Jewish population, a Muslim and a Jew. They were fighting, insulting each other now forgotten Muslim will do the stuff on Mohammed Al Al Al Amin, he says by his war he says by the one who had favored Muhammad above all creation. So he swore by what he says I swear by Allah who favored Muhammad above all Creation Alamy
kala for hallelujah hoody so the Jew now in reply because both of them are angry right? Carla the stuffer Musa Al and I mean he says by the one they swear by the one word favored Musa above creation. So for the Jew, who was the best Musa to him that's what he believes so Musa is the best. So when he said that in retaliation to the Muslim said, so Carla for vulnerable Muslim or in Daedalic follow Tom Odelia hoody. So he said he the Muslim got so angry he slapped the Jewish man.
So that Jewish man went to the messengers of Allah he was in fact about who we might get I mean, somebody who I'm really Muslim he told him about the whole story. He said this I said that he hit me back. So the prophets of Allah Allah He was telling me he said to her ye Rooney Allah Musa don't raise me above Musa
do not raise me above Musa for in the nursery use Hakuna so poor people will fall unconscious
yo ml pm on the day of judgment for a corneal fee Oh William and you'll feel I will be among the first to wake up
in fact the first to wake up for either Musa about they shouldn't be Jenny bill our son I find Musa holding to the side of the Throne of Allah zodion Fela three again a female saya Hubley. Oh can I mean many Stefan Allah. So I do not know was he also unconscious and he woke up before me or Allah excluded him from falling unconscious.
Meaning the Prophet salallahu Salam here is pointing to a virtue of Musa alayhis salam. So he says, Don't raise me above Musa like that, because this is what's happened going to happen on the Day of Judgment, we all will fall unconscious, I'll be the first to rise from it, meaning wake up, and I look around and the fruit of the only person who would have risen, possibly before me is Musa alayhis salam, either he regained consciousness before me or he was not unconscious at all. Well, we'll explain that in Sharla. But let's go back to the Death incident that kind of leads to all of this. So the Muslim and the Jewish man are fighting. And the Muslim man says by the one word
favorite Muhammad upon creation, and the Jewish man said by the one who had favorite Musa upon Cree Shabaab of all creation, and the Muslim hits him.
So what does the Jewish man do?
He goes, where?
Do the messengers a lot you said, to tell him over what happened? What does that tell you? In itself? Right? Why does he go to?
Right? I mean, we know that there are sort of lysosome is the leader of Medina. Right? But still different faith. Right.
And especially that that Jewish man, you know, insisted by what he said that Musa is better than Mohamed Salah Salem, right?
And the Muslim man hidden
and the Muslim man belongs to. He's a follower of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam who was just praised Muhammad and I did what no I demoted Muhammad Ali cinnamon raise Musa above, so that not that Muslim is my enemy. And we fought and I kind of put Mohamed Salah syndrome a step down below Musa and yet when I wanted to complain to someone about it when I go
to him massage.
What does that tell you about what he believed the bottom homicides and he trusts him and justice that he feel safe. Right? Like completely safe with the profits. All he sent me could go to him and he said, I said this about you. And he said that about you? Was he afraid? He went voluntarily to tell the prophets a lot he said and also to complain because as you said he knew that he could get justice from homicides. It doesn't matter if his opponent was Muslim or not.
Right? It doesn't matter. And that means that he knows that Muhammad SAW you send them listens.
Right? He listens. He gives them a chance to speak and he would listen to me. And after he listens to me he is just enough that he
Even though he has a connection between him and that Muslim if that Muslim was wrong he will rule against them.
He see understand that they have just that distance that goes beyond emotions right now sometimes you know if you want to take the scenario today if there's a Jewish men fighting with a Muslim man before you hear anything what would you say? Who's wrong
the Jewish men must be damaged you know of course they are this and there that right there of course that is only bad things come from them. That's what he will say. Haven't heard anything yet. So what is that Jewish man is actually has the right and it's the fault is with
that Muslim man.
As he before you judge before you use up your emotions to decide, this is right, and this is wrong. Muslims have always to be right. The non Muslims always have to be wrong before you even do this. You got to listen first because justice requires that you listen. And you please Allah as a surgeon, don't just simply please your emotions. So if your cousin and your brother fight who's right? Your brother? Or your cousin?
You don't know yet until you listen, right? If your neighbor and your cousin fight who's your who's right?
Because in Right, right, my cousin is right, because that's the allegiance that we have. A Muslim has always to be right. My brother is always right. My cousin is always right. So the ones that I love are always right. And the ones who are further away from me are always wrong. That is in a sense what emotional Jamelia innocence. Right? Because the Arabs used to say that yeah, Haley are also a haka volume and Omar bloomer, is his champion your brother whether he's right or wrong,
right, like some people do it today, tilted to it today even among Arabs, right? It says, Come, we're gonna go Where are you gonna go? We're fighting. Okay, we'll go.
We're going to be up someone doesn't know. It doesn't ask why. Right? Is it's a fight. Okay, fine. I'm with you. Right? I have your back is like what what if he's on the wrong? It doesn't matter. My cousin asked me this. I'm gonna champion him. I'm gonna bet somebody's head. That's it. But that's not Islam, right? It's not blind like this, even Subhan Allah when it comes to someone who has the same faith of yours, the same religion of yours, and someone who doesn't. Justice dictates that you listen to both and you judge with equity. So the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam realized that the Muslim did something wrong. That what did Muslim do? That was wrong, right. What did he must do when
he sets a lolly so Neto, Hey, Ronnie Anna Musa. Kind of don't raise me above Musa him. Okay, who's better?
The prophets Allah alayhi salam, or Musa alayhis salam who's better?
The Prophet sallallaahu Salam. That's true. Right? So why did he say that to her your only don't raise me above Musa alayhis salam.
If you are saying that the Prophet sallallaahu Selim is better than Musa as a statement of fact as a religious sentiment, right. So as a statement of belief, there's nothing wrong with that, because he said a lot he was Elim himself said and as say you do well at the Dharma Wallah. For her I am the best of the children of Adam. And there is no pride in what I'm saying. This is a beautiful statement meaning I'm telling you because I have to tell you, not telling you out of fright. I'm telling you because you need that statement to know that the statue of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to love Muhammad sallahu wa salam to know that he's the best when you know he's the best you follow Him
more than anyone else. So I'm not telling you this because I'm proud. I'm telling you this so that you know this as a religious fact. So Prophet Muhammad SAW you send them is better than Musa but when you say that Mohamed Salah lucidum is better than Musa in terms of competition.
Okay, then you wrong
if you put him as if he is competing with Musa alayhis salam and because you want to be better than or you have a quarrel with that Jewish person. See you want to put Mohammed up to put
Musa down. You understand? Then that's wrong.
Because we're not allowed to put more salaries and I'm done. Okay. We're not allowed to put any profits in terms of competition. My profit is better than your profit
is Mussa their profit?
Is your profit or not? It belongs to you. belongs to you. You have to remember this. As an ally. He said I'm Jesus their profit. He belongs to you. Okay, he is
As much yours as you know, of course you have more connection to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam obviously, but he is really yours. He's the brother of Mohamed slavisa Musa is the brother of mob there is no competition so that's why he sets a lot he was hitting them don't raise me up of Musa like that terms of competition and putting him down and because you're angry that is wrong. Okay.
As are also there's another Hadith whenever the other kind of related to this where he said Salah Salem
that not one say that I am better than Yunus of no matter, Jonah,
right? Why? Because when you read the story of unis, Alayhis Salam, you know that he made a mistake, and you know that he was swallowed by the whale and you know, you know the story. So you may have the inclination to say, Oh, he is of a lower stature right than Muhammad sallahu wa salam and looked down on him because of that, he sets a lot of muscle and don't let anyone say, I am better than you in a signal meta in that statement. Because from that, you may understand that we're putting you in a race and I'm down, and that is the wrong sentiment. So anyway, coming back to what he said. He said, Don't do this with Musa alayhis salam to put him down to raise me up. Right. And then he
mentioned a virtue
that is unique to Musa alayhis salaam Khalifa in the nursery use Arkona yo multi Amma people will have this sock sock, the site or site I'll set up a sock o sock like this could refer to death
or falling unconscious.
So here, when he says Yusaku normal pm a day will fall unconscious on the Day of Judgment. This could mean one of two things. Either he Alayhi Salatu Salam is talking about the second blowing of the trumpet.
Okay, the second blowing of the trumpet, meaning that those who are already have passed those who are already dead, they're alive in spirit, right? When the trumpet the second blow the trumpet blows, everybody falls unconscious. They don't die, the spirits don't die again. But they be unconscious.
And then they regained consciousness and they will be in their bodies for you.
So it means that or it means that there is specific instance on the day of judgment meaning when the bodies right, when the souls are in the bodies and people are resurrected. There are a specific instance where Allah azza wa jal will appear to people or will come. And because of that, everybody falls unconscious. And then they become conscious again. So it's not death. It's loss of consciousness. So either he somebody was in the means, the second blow the trumpet, or a particular loss of consciousness, on the Day of Judgment itself. Either way, he said, Salatu was Salam, I'll be the first to regain consciousness. And I find Musa alayhis salam already there.
Before me, and that's virtue or not.
Right, that is a virtue. Right? Specific. mencoba a specific honor that Allah is going to give in Musa alayhis salam. So he is already up holding the side of the Throne of Allah as his origin. So he sets a lot he will send a fella agree I do not know. Did he wake up before me?
Or Did Allah exclude him?
We did Allah exclude him. Okay. And again, also that exclusion,
If we say it is the second blow of the trumpet, okay, not everything, as some scholars have said, not everything dies.
Right, the second blow of the trumpet, right? When we say people on earth and then the heavens die, right? They say no, there are exceptions to that. People in Jannah the whole ain and the inhabitant agenda, they don't die. So the second law of the trumpet doesn't affect them. So they say that there are exceptions. So the second floor of the trumpet where people do not die, or not people, beings creatures don't die. Right? So they say maybe Musa is among those who are excluded.
Or if this just happens on the Day of Judgment, right, as Allah appears on everybody loses consciousness, Musa is excluded. It says In another Hadith, was he compensated? Or did that happen to him because he experienced loss of consciousness in the dunya when Allah azza wa jal manifests manifested to the mountain. Filament the gel Daraa boohoo Jubilee Jaya Allahu wa Hara musasa if you remember the story
when Musa alayhis salam asked Allah azza wa jal let me see you
and what Allah azza wa jal says, it says you cannot see me but I will manifest to the mountain.
And if it stays in its place you'll be able to see me So when Allah manifested to the mountain what happened to the mountain?
Destroy destroyed, fell apart, right? While hurrah Musa sidecar and Musa fell unconscious.
So maybe perhaps, that loss of consciousness was enough for him, he did not experience it again, on the Day of Judgment. Right? And that is a virtue for Musa alayhis salam.
Now Subhanallah also one of the benefits in the Hadith that you can see, is the Prophet sallallaahu. Selim says what I do not know whether he woke up before me, or Allah excluded him.
The province awesome does not know Right, right. Can you No, no. The interesting any, Allah did not tell him right.
Allah did not tell him and his seemingly he didn't ask Allah for it.
It means that there are things that Allah did not tell him, it's a lot. He said, No.
And there was no need for him to know. And the beautiful thing is that the prophets of Allah seldom tells you I do not know. And in a sense by that he's teaching you that there are things that you're not gonna know, and there's no benefit in you knowing them. Because if there's benefits, Allah would have taught that to you.
Like, does it matter whether Musa was excluded? Or he woke up before? Does it really matter? No, what matters is what is a virtue? All right, it's an honor. That's it. That's enough. You find him there, it's an honor. Now I need to know for sure whether because there are some mines are like that. Some of us, the mines are like, I need to know why. I don't know, I need to know whether he woke up or whether he was excluded. What is that gonna help? How is that going to advance you? In knowledge and religion? In practice? How is it no nothing, but I just need to know some but some bits all of us get so fixated on specific pieces of knowledge that are in fact distracting, and you
will find Subhanallah part of the wisdom that you will find in the Quran is Allah purposely excludes details?
That may be fascinating to some, but he doesn't talk about them. Like the famous one, right? That number of the people in the cave, saw that and guess how many are they? And Allah tells you? Are they three and four, five and six, seven and eight? How many are they? Allah tells you that people go through this. But but who only knows them? Truly, who only knows that? Allah has zodion As if to teach you that? The number doesn't matter.
The number of the people of the cave doesn't matter how many they were?
Does it advance the story in any way? does it teach you anything else? No.
If you focus on it, you miss the essence of the story. You'd be distracted by numbers, or by location. Where are they? Are they in Turkey? Are they in Syria? Are they where are Jordan where are they doesn't matter?
Doesn't matter at all. So you could be so distracted by minute knowledge, minutiae of knowledge, that you missed the whole picture. So Allah azza wa jal, what he does in the Quran, he focuses on the most important thing that you need to know. And the details get left out if they are not needed, right. And so here the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is telling you that I didn't ask Allah.
Okay, he didn't tell me and the Sahaba when they heard this, they did not ask the Prophet salallahu Salam about it because they understood that it's not beneficial, right?
The second hadith is just a repetition of this one, low Allah. So maybe inshallah we'll take one more Hadith that's it. Insha Allah for for today. baboon. This is the following chapter number 43. babble. Oh, baboon Jacobi, Allahu Akbar, the chapter that Allah grabs the Earth. Allah grabs the earth.
And in this hadith, the first Hadith the message is a lot he was hitting him says, You have to be a doula who out of the way it was summer I be a meanie from Morocco and Morocco a&m, Hulu called Earth. This is Allah azza wa jal grabs the earth I mean, all of this earth Allah has lived and will grab with his hand while we Sama, be a meanie and he will roll up all the heavens like the seven heavens all of them the skies, all of them with his right hand. And then he will say, I am the king, where
are the kings of the earth.
Right? And that hadith shows you the might of Allah xojo and his power, the might of Allah azza wa jal and his powers pan over to Allah. So the first one is Jacobi Allahu Allah, that Allah azza wa jal grabs the earth, like this entire earth that you see Allah as you will grab, it will be in his hand.
Okay, so that's one thing.
And the other thing, all the skies, okay, the first sky, the second sky, the third sky and so on and so on and so on till the seventh one, all of them will be rolled, you know, like a piece of paper that you roll, right? So all of them will be rolled up. And Allah will hold all of that in his right hand.
Okay, and it is said to Allahu alum that this happens between the two blowing of the horns when everybody's dead.
Everybody's dead, there's no one to respond.
And so Allah azza wa jal says, Anil Malik, I am the king.
Where are the kings of the earth?
And that there is that extreme powerlessness of humanity means everybody's dead. No one has power. And Allah azza wa jal asks that question, he tells us about it now. Good, no good not gonna witness it. If we're dead. We're not going to hear it when we're dead. But tells us about it now. So that we will learn from it, to realize that there is no king except Allah azza wa jal, because see what he does with this earth like a king on this earth, you think he has power, he does whatever he wants. And we don't really have kings now, like really, really kings, like we used to have before, before you had a king where if they wanted to do something, invade a country, they would go and do it and
do that. Now, there's such a balance of power dependence on other elements within the state that you don't really have a king with sovereignty like we did before.
So we thought, oh, this person can do whatever they want. They can mobilize an army. They can legislate, they can take, they can have money, they can confiscate, they have so much power. And because of that, we're afraid of them. And because of that, we tried to please them and we think they really can do whatever they want. And Allah wants us to know through this hadith is that no, they're not kings.
They're not kings, the only king is Allah azza wa jal, I am the king. See how I'm holding all of this truth that tempted you and frightened you all of that is in the hands of Allah xuejun. He says, There's in some Athar, some tradition, it says that
the earth in the hands of Allah zodion is less than a mustard seed in your hand.
Of course, the Hand of Allah azza wa jal, you know, cannot be imagined befits His Majesty. subhanho wa taala. Right. So we mentioned these SIFAT these attributes, but we say the how belongs to Allah azza wa jal. We don't know how Allah looks right. We don't know how Allah looks. But we affirm what the Prophet salallahu Salam are firms. But we say that, you know, as some of the setup or some of the thought I've said, Imagine, right, a mustard seed in your hand, is it anything?
Right? It's nothing.
Does it bother you? Does it overwhelm you? Does it trouble you a mustard seed, you could crush it anytime you want.
So he said, this all earth that is troubling you that makes you sick, that makes you lose sleep, that you sacrifice Allah for it, all of it is nothing in the hands of Allah as a soldier.
So if you if you imagine that in your head, meaning imagine how small it is, to comparison to Allah, you would never give up Allah for the sake of the dunya because you know that it's in Allah's hands.
It's an Allah ZAN. And you know that all the power that people have is nothing compared to Allah has power. He has the power, and then Milic this person who says he's a king, or a president or whatever, and he thinks he's strong, wait a little bit, and you see how he loses his power, how he becomes sick, how you know he's dethroned how this you just live long enough, and you will see it
and you will know that he has no power.
And that power, what
moves from one hand to the other money moves one hand to the other. And then Melek so he says, He's saying Subhan Allah to Allah, where are the kings of the earth now?
Even now, we can ask it. Where are the kings of the earth now that were 100 years ago? Where are they?
Inside the earth? What power do they have? Nothing. What legacy do they have probably one of the worst legacies, right?
They are with Allah azza wa jal and Allah
I will ask him about all the wrongs that they did or the good that they've done.
Because so if no one has power, but Allah azza wa jal, and no king is there but Allah, should we be afraid of anyone. So imagine this that every king is in the hands of Allah. Every kings power is in the hands of Allah. And Subhan Allah if Allah azza wa jal were to know from us from our hearts, that we're not afraid, except from him. subhanho wa taala, everybody would be afraid of you.
Okay. And if Allah would know that we would honor Him and His command and his power more than people, everybody would honor you. So the more that you honor Allah, the more that Allah honors you, and the more that you are afraid of Allah, not people afraid of Allah, the more that people will be afraid of you so that is the see that men halfa Allah Hafiz, no collusion. It says if you're afraid of Allah, everything else will fuel you.
If you're afraid of Allah, everything else will fear you. Not fear your meaning necessarily be terrified of you, but respect you. There will be that in their hearts towards you. Where does that come from? Because if you're Allah xuejun
And the one who is, you know, not afraid of Allah azza wa jal will be afraid of everything else.
So that's the belief that when we have that, imagine that scene when Allah azza wa jal says this, I am the king and say that to yourself, every time you are afraid of something or someone else, he is the king, where are the kings of the earth? He is the King where are the kings of the earth and Subhan Allah you will find that let the fear that you have in your heart of other things will gradually in sha Allah.
Allah Allah LM so see insha Allah if you have questions or want to add something or comments let me know inshallah.
Let's scan the room a couple of times. So from here you're good.
