Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah while early he also had be he was salam alaikum Malema million pharaoh now one fan of Mr. Olympia winner was in Iman autobill al Amin Obama in the cricket or shoe creek or Hosni Mubarak.
So first of all, before we get into the lesson, just a quick reminder, insha Allah. So if we're lining up for the Salah, and you reach the back rows, and if you're going to start a row in sha Allah and there's a space in the midst of don't line up between the pillars, so avoid the pillars because if you align up between the biller pillars first what happens? You don't have a complete line. Right? And there's also the Sahaba of the Allah unknown Kendall Carlo, hakuna known her and his sadati. Bina Swati, we used to be told not to pray between pillars. Now who told them that
solar solar system so this is not something that should be done unless out of necessity this semester is truly full, like on Joomla, then you use that space, but if not, and you have space in the back, so don't use the rows between the pillars of law I'm so just a reminder, like, if we did not know, so that we would know and he would tell other people about it. And inshallah this also this
lecture is going to be slightly different. We're still going to be doing this in sha Allah. But I'm going to start it with a question that I received. And I thought that it's important enough to embed in the lecture itself so that it stays.
And the question was,
you know, a sister asked, he said, What about an hour we need no hedger.
If they are from the Usher era, as some people are saying, are we not allowed to take their words, study their books benefit from them? So if no hatred and an hour we should we avoid them completely? Or is there another stance that we should take since they are or they belong to the Russia, Iran, if they belong to the Russia era, then that means that they belong to an innovate it? Sector innovated group, right? So first of all, okay, to answer this question, let's kind of present few principles. And if you don't know what the Usher era means, it doesn't really matter. Right? You don't really have to know specifics, because the principles here are general, first of all, is a lay person is
not supposed to get into issues of tech fear. And tip D is calling people cafe or move today. This is not the purview of a layperson. No matter how well read you think you are, and how many lectures you've listened to, you don't engage in this, because these are very serious matters. But you don't operate on a person instead of a surgeon and say, I watch things on YouTube.
So operating on a person like that, meaning he is a Catholic or not, or he's an innovator or not, should not be the business of laypeople. Because when that happens, you're going to commit mistakes. And when you commit mistakes, these have serious consequences, say, serious consequences. So we let that aside as laypeople scholars, that's different. But also not every type of scholar. When it comes to declaring a person a Kaffir, or a disbeliever, or an innovator, you're not going to listen to junior students of knowledge
on YouTube, or not even their junior students or knowledge speakers. Someone who is charismatic enough, has some vocabulary, studied somewhere, gets on in front of the camera and speaks and he attracts people, all of a sudden that person becomes what
an authority just because enough people listen to them. So that person is not supposed to speak about these things. And you're not supposed to take these things from them. If this matter is serious as a describe, who is supposed to refer to
the top scholars, the Senior Scholars senior in terms of knowledge, and senior in terms of age.
So what I'm gonna say is avoid the young.
You're not going to take your knowledge and especially these matters from the young.
a young person who is a student of knowledge, for instance, or trying or reading can tell you about what invalidates the whole right? Tell you about what invalidates Salah when you get into these deep matters No.
You ask that person if he's speaking he's telling you, this person is a Kaffir this person is an innovator, you ask simply a question of who else among the Senior Scholars says this
Don't come to me by yourself and tell me these things so you receive things on social media or you're a group on WhatsApp or and then you receive these things and you start believing them or loving them confuse you
see, so who among the Senior Scholars is saying this name them?
So when you see for instance about an hour we ended Mohajer
the higher to Cuba or an aroma right in Saudi Arabia at the time when IGNOU basil Rahim Allah was the head of that committee was asked this question and he said, Yeah, despite the fact that even though Hydra now we will have some mistakes, but they are credible, religious, Muslim scholars, may Allah have mercy on them and they are to be learned from and to be benefited from. So they praise them despite that, there are some mistakes and they say yeah, there are some mistakes, we disagree with these things, but as people as scholars, they are to be respected and venerated and made to ask for, right, if nobody has, on his own was asked this same answer, if not with a mean Rahim Allah. He
when he was asked about this, he says, Look at the baraka that Allah had put in it no hedgehog, and now are we. So if I asked you today, the most famous commentator on Buhari is who even know hedger the, that foremost and most comprehensive to date commentary on Buhari is no hedger if you want to understand Buhari today, you can bypass it no hedger.
So, you want to see if no, hedger is an innovator and I'm going to discuss it in a little bit more detail, but I want us to understand this. So at least you have some knowledge and ammunition right.
The most famous commentary on Muslim is come by him and no. So, let me let him Allah he says, Look at the baraka the both of them have and he said I wish I had a book like a no always real solid hint that you could find in every Muslims home.
So they are credible Muslim scholars and they are from Al Hadith, Al Hadith in the sense of what they are scholars of Hadith
Gani. They focused on Hadith and commentary and studying it and most tolerated Hadith to a degree that they are attached to Hadith and that what makes them so credible and valuable. Second of all, to call IGNOU hedger and a no, we from the Usher era is imprecise and inaccurate. Because yes, there is some overlap in few opinions, but in other opinions, no, it's not. So it's an accurate to say no is an Azure AD, or ignore hedger is an Ashati, because they disagree with the Russia era. So it's important to preserve the scholars of Islam rather than dismantle them and destroy them. If anything that that comes, don't let it confuse you, but as the one who is making the claim to do what,
where's your proof? That's just gonna take from you. You are may be young, you may be intelligent, well spoken, but do we have no other scholars who have spoken about such an important matter? If we do, then show them? If none, it means that that claim lacks what? validity? Right Is that clear in sha Allah, so I hope that that had answered it. And
we are in sha Allah continuing with the same chapter of the softness of the heart, the description of Heaven and Hell.
And we've reached this hadith, where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
in one scenario other than yarmulke Yama to Raju Loon, to the Aafia mercy Academy he Gemballa to nearly minha Dima, who is the one who's least punish, on the Day of Judgment
is a man who will have embers beneath his arches beneath his feet and from that from these embers,
his head would be boiling.
That is the least of punishment on the day of judgment is that there is this man right at the shallow end of hellfire as we will see in the following Hadith. And what he has is that underneath his feet are what embers like this hot smoldering charcoal and from that because of that heat, it goes all the way to where his head and what happened is what his head is boiling.
So could you imagine Subhanallah, a boiling head, a head that boils, if you ever had a fever may Allah azza wa jal protect and reward for that but if you had a fever like you really hot this is unlike that heat because the head itself is boiling from that toaster.
Amber's under his feet. Now the following Hadith also
the repeats that
and he said so the Lord he or send them in when linaria either been yarmulke Yama the one who will be least punished receives the least amount of punishment on the day of judgment and mercy Academy huge ombre turn to embers right below the arches of his feet. His head is boiling because of that, as camellia de la mera Giroux, welcome calm as a pot is boiling or as the pot is boiling or a kettle, right. So, again, if you put a kettle
and you're waiting for the water to boil, you see how the water boils? Or you're boiling some water in a container and you see how it's boys and the noise that it makes. He says it's like that. It's boiling like that. So Subhan Allah that's why also the prophets Allah, he was salam says In another Hadith, he says, the prophets Allah sent them to you said for a Shahabi yj, the Karana and we encountered this hadith before. It says the Prophet sallahu wa salam
remembered or mentioned hellfire. Holla Khalifa Shahana, he turned his head away as if he is seeing it sallallahu alayhi wasallam as if it's in front of him, and that because it's such an ugly sight, because we imagine that the prophets only sin was able to see what Allahu Allah and that is, the stronger interpretation is that he could see or simply, and that is a possibility, you know, how would you remember something that is so disturbing? What do you do you just turn away? Because he just you want that image to go away from your head? That's a possibility too, but he remembered or he mentioned Hellfire fascia turned away and he says it duckweed Nara protects yourself from
hellfire one Oh, Bishop Bates, I'm not even with half a day. But if not, then with a good word. So when you know that this is the least amount of punishment that a person will receive on the Day of Judgment? What do you say to yourself? You cannot run away from this. I want to make sure that I will not be in that spot. Because if that's the least, what happened if I'm the second most least, right?
What if my punishment may Allah you know, forgive us all and protect us all? What is my initial punishment is deeper down than this?
Can you tolerate the boiling of your head? So that's why you say, how can I protect myself from hellfire, every opportunity for a good thing should be seized. That's why he said salatu salam in this
hadith, while Bishop Peter MWRA. He says what do you have just this gift that sometimes you pass by a person
and they're asking for money? And the only thing that you have is $1. And you say, what is this dollar going to do?
What is this dollar going to do? This is exactly the same question as what is half a date going to do?
What's the answer? Now?
Oh, will delay question sell it till the end. BarakAllahu li Zack Aloka. So what is it going to do? It could do a lot.
Because as we said, you could give it and that person when he sees that generosity,
his Eman could increase. He could eat that. And they could be Baraka in it. He could eat that and somebody else sees you and inspired by you and He gives more. A lot of good and if only if only that you would give it and if there's sincerity in it, Allah accepts it from you. And he grows it until it's like a mountain is that not enough to save yourself from hellfire. So any opportunity and I hope Insha Allah, Allah blesses us with enough wisdom so that we would remember this, if you find any gap for doing good thing. And it seems like you're the one for it, take advantage of it because Allah has Zoda gifted you with that.
Right? Any it's not just oh, it doesn't matter. Another person will do it. Another person will take care of it. Now you stop and you help you stop and you give directions. You stop and you ask about that person. seize that opportunity because you never know. And the prophets always send them also said
from eating them Yejin from an immediate Furby Kenny imagine play but what if you don't have even half a day? Good word. You don't have $1 to give him May Allah give you may Allah provide for you may Allah you shower you with happiness and blessings May Allah do
and because we may not have enough money to encompass everybody, but we have enough words into how to include everybody. Do you have enough
dollars to spend on every Muslim? Absolutely not to fulfill the need of every Muslim that knocking? Or you feel helpless sometimes because of it. But do you have enough words to cover every Muslim? Absolutely. Allah homophilic Muslim, you know, and Muslim. You feel about the Muslims, you know, in x country and why country and the being persecuted, you can do anything, you can't donate enough. But you can say something to include all of them. They say but is that enough? At least it is something and then do more if you can, but at least alkylene metadata Yeah, but the good word is there.
Don't even be stingy with that, because you need to protect yourself from hellfire. And
before I move here, I want to stop a little bit and comment on a reaction that a person may have
to these on similar Hadith when we're talking about punishment.
So there is a person who will receive that and that person will receive it well, because they have a good balance of knowledge
and actions. And trust in Allah subhanho wa taala. So that's one
there's a person who will receive it and they will say,
Yeah, okay, I understand by Why does it have to be so harsh?
A person's head is boiling, right?
And another person will take it to an extreme and that person will say, Well, I really have difficulty with all that fear and punishment in the Quran and the Sunnah. I'm not motivated by that I have difficulty like, why should it be so strong and so harsh? And so this and so because it's important, and it's actually relevant to what we're talking about, which is softening the heart. Because if you have questions that are unanswered questions that are doubts, then you heart cannot submit and cannot accept. So let's go first to the well balanced, why is he well balanced? Because A, I said, there's enough knowledge, but knowledge on its own is not enough. You could know
everything, but it's not enough. Until you do what with that knowledge, you apply it.
Right? That's why if you if you think how could so and so, so know so much about Islam, and yet, don't believe in it. And yet, you know, don't practice it is hard, because it's theory. There's no practice and practice solidifies knowledge. Practice opens doors for you that you can understand what the person who just memorized or just knows it for rational reasons, does not know. So if a person knows and if a person practices and a person submits to Allah Zildjian meaning that this is it, if Allah says it, that this is going to happen? Can you find it?
Can you run away from it?
Any incident Subhanallah you know, it's likes hating the rising of the sun.
I'm against the rising of the sun, it's gonna rise whether you like it or not.
You submit to the sun or not. Every day. i Yeah, it's not up to you. Any innocence, Allah decides that the sun is going to rise is going to rise despite us is going to be hot today. It's going to be hot. Why hate the heat, it doesn't matter.
You're going to be under the heat of the sun. You want to go and challenge a mountain to a fistfight.
You want to do that? You don't know how great the mountain is compared to you. Like I'm just talking to here about compelling power.
Allah azza wa jal is going to do this whether you want it or not. Whether you understand it or not, so you have either to say I submit because there's no way away from this I submit Yeah, Allah I know what's gonna happen. So what's my response? How can I save myself from it? Not how I can challenge it. Challenge all you want if you want but it's gonna happen it's gonna happen.
So yeah, and he there's this talk about nuclear war right now and launches and what have you. And as you see the missile coming in, you say I'm against this missile, be against it all you want, but it's gonna happen. So what's your response to challenge it? Find you find a way away from it. So the one who's well balanced, he says, I know Allah azza wa jal and Allah Allah Allah asserted his own merciful all powerful. He does what he does, I don't need to understand L of his actions in detail to accept it.
Do you know all the attributes of Allah asserted in detail how he looks?
Yeah, no. Do you know you know, the extent of Allah's power? The extent you don't know? So do you expect if you don't know Allah Zota
in such detail that you will understand all of his actions in detail. No,
no. And we could actually talk more and more and more about this, but I'm saying that the well balanced person has email so he accepts is going to happen. And I trust him Subhanallah even if I don't understand some details, and as we say to so people, if you have a question about some of those details, and no one on earth can answer it. Wait till you ask. Or wait till you see.
Okay, delay. Allah will give you the answer later. So that's one. The second is why does it have to be this harsh, someone who's standing in the middle, he says, I'm okay with Islam and everything, but this, some of these things, they seem so harsh. And he may or she may think to themselves if it were me,
I wouldn't punish this much
for you. But you clear in sha Allah and I understand your sensitivity and I understand all some, by the way, this could pop into our heads without even you know what,
prior thinking about all of these things, inshallah it says, let's think about it a bit, rationally and a bit emotionally and say to ourselves, this is a Rama coming from you. Right? Isn't it when you say I wouldn't do it, I wouldn't punish this person so much. Is it absolutely it's Rama, the prayer insha Allah and we know that Allah azza wa jal equated you out of nothing right? Including this Rama.
So you're Rama comes from where your mercy comes from?
Allah azza wa jal.
So you're going to have more Rama than Allah. Logically, can you say have to ask yourself, Is it possible that I could be more merciful than the Most Merciful?
No, that can be then what's happening here, that my Brahma is somehow inferior matter what I feel is inferior to the realm of Allah xojo and his misplace?
It's not it's in its proper place. Allah azza wa jal will be more merciful with that person than I am.
Right? And if you want to just take a kind of a human example, you know, the mother is very emotional when it comes to her children. And some others, they could be so emotional, emotional and so merciful, that they hardly punish the child. Say, and because they do that.
This child spoiled because of it. He doesn't hear a word no. Wrong.
So if somebody comes in, he yells at that child. And he says, No, you shouldn't do this. And someone observing this and he says, No, that's lack of Rama.
What do you say? He says, No, the mother has Rama definitely. But her Rama is so excessive, that if there is no limit to it, it's sports as a child.
And Allah knows his creation more than you.
So you cannot proceed to teach Allah azza wa jal, God forbid about what he is supposed to do with his creation, Asa Alayhis Salam he said into a deep home for in the home a Badak If you punish them, they are your slaves. We have no power over that you just gonna stand and observe and ultimately they say that all of creation when they see the judgment of Allah will praise Him for it, because they'll understand how it was just and merciful
the last thing that I want to address and again it's important because when you read it in the Quran and read it in the Sunnah, I don't want us to have a reaction of what why this is so harsh and can't accept it. For as a new says, Why is it so harsh in the Quran and the Sunnah judgment fire burning this and that and like I find myself I want to run away from it. Why are we always being motivated with fear?
To that we say, Allah azza wa jal does not only motivate with fear,
does Allah only talk about Jahannam in the Quran?
What else is you're talking about? Janna? So Allah motivates you with fear, yes.
And Allah motivates you with hope, which is Jana. And underneath those if you read the Quran
carefully, repeatedly and your Eman increases, he motivates you with love.
But you need kind of to work your way through it. Because whenever he mentions His names and attributes, the numbers that he had given you, what is he asking you to do?
To love himself Allah subhanho wa Taala and to love the profits always and of course, but to love him subhanho wa Taala so he motivates you with these three.
hope and love the news
Say, Okay, why is it that there is fear? Why do I have to hear about these things? Right? It just, it just discourages me. They say, Maybe Maybe you're the exception. And maybe you're a person who is motivated more by hope or by love. But for a totality of humanity, what is the best motivator for humanity? If you want to really be honest with yourself, fear, hope or love?
Who says fear? I'm hoping I'm not feeding you the answer. I'm just trying to want you to think about it. What is
Yeah, small child, and even as adults actually, even as adults. So how does the society by the way, worldly society not based on on a religion? How do they organize themselves and make sure that bad things don't happen? By telling you what love each other?
Or by telling you if you do this, what do we do?
We punish you.
Right? So Imagine yourself driving down the road. And there are no traffic laws. We're only thing we're saying just love each other. Just give each other space, right? Just don't hug each other. Do you think people will follow that? Nope. But when do when do we follow it if you know that there is a fine? If you know that there are demerits if you know that there's a police car behind you, that's like an automatic reaction that tells you how to behave. Okay? You're driving past the speed limit. A policeman drives behind you next to you, what do you happens? You're the perfect driver, exemplary driver, until he leaves you're motivated by what? Fear? So no matter what we want to say about
ourselves, and Allah knows us more than we know ourselves. Why is like you think there's a dose of fear in the Quran and Sunnah? Because for most people, the thing that we're going to bring you into the fold is fear of punishment.
That's it. And once Allah brings you into the fold, and you start praying, and fasting, and all of these things, right, you start practicing
Allah, Allah reminds you of the reward in them.
So he takes you from one to the next. And when you do it now out of Jana and Howard hoping for the reward, Allah ultimately moves you to the highest level, which is out of love.
For Allah sake. Right? But you need to do what to be brought in. So yes, these things are there, but these things are there for your sake so that you understand the consequences. So don't fight Allah azza wa jal because of it don't rebelled because of it accepted that is going to happen. And now modify yourself so that you do not be that person who would be punished by Allah azza wa jal in jahannam. And when that's the case, when you practice, then you will discover hope, and then you will discover the love of Allah azza wa jal at the end. So
now we'll go back to the Hadith. And here it tells us in particular, who is the person or one of the people who will be at least punished on the Day of Judgment. So I will say Who the are the Allahu Anhu? He said he heard the prophets of Allah who Allah He was salam. What do Kira in the hood Amber who Abu Talib I'm Mugu his uncle Abu Talib was mentioned in front of the prophets of Allah Salam meaning like years after his passing, and he said Lala Hooton fow who Shaeffer Ito multi Emma for your geography of the hubba Han Mina Na, yep, Luca De Lima in Houma, amo de Marie, are we actually mean who are moody mercury? It says, perhaps my intercession will help him on the day of judgment
and he will be in the shallow end of the fire that will reach his ankles and from that his head would be boiling
Subhanallah Who is this apple toilet? And who is Apple toilet?
Um rasool Allah is the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Now, why is the prophets Allah was salam going to intercede for him? Now we'll tally up what did He die as a believer or a mushrik? I'm gonna shake. Right? So there is an authentic hadith about the prophets, Allah Allah will send them going to Abu Talib asking him just to see that either in Allah. But ultimately he refused to say it so he died as a missionary. But through his life next to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what did he do?
He championed the prophet and he protected him. And he allowed the Dawa to proceed. And he fended off all those who wanted to stop and attack or
muzzle the prophets are listening so he wouldn't speak. He allowed him to continue, and we'll tell him he had this Jahad this prestige
in society that they couldn't touch Muhammad salallahu Salam, because of the place of doubleton had been a one several pilot dies, the harm intensifies, because now that safety valve is not no longer there, and that tells you one of the benefits that you could take from that is that a Muslim could find refuge in a non Muslim who could protect him. And that does not contradict you know, wala, and Bara does not contradict the message of Islam as long as that person or that entity does not dictate what you say.
That will fall it did not come to hematol Islam say sake talk about this, but not that the Prophet would never accept it. But he loved him what speak as he wishes preach as he wish.
So we'll call it protected.
Muhammad Salatu was Salam. And with that he protected the Dawa quite for quite a while. So that's why when it was mentioned in another Hadith, la bass was asking a bass is the brother of Abu Talib, right, so he's asking about his brother. So he says he did all of these things for you. Would you be able to help him and he said, Sal, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, perhaps my intercession will help him maybe it is going to happen. So we will be taken from the depths of hellfire because he's an unbeliever, all the way to the shallow top of hellfire, where the fire reaches his ankles only not the rest of his body, and not the rest of his body is being burned. The right fire only goes to the
ankles, but he will feel it all the way to the head where the head is boiling. Right? So any Subhanallah
as as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said in Allah How to Answer the DNA, Roger read Fajr and we encountered this before. He said, Allah could champion this religion, within with a facet within a sinner could champion this religion with someone who is in pious. So I will tell the champion this religion but he did not embrace it. Right? So it's possible that this be the case. And it just tells you that he Daya is in the hands of Allah azza wa jal. So once you get it, don't let go of it.
The following hadith is a bit of a long one, and it has other versions of it but it tells you about what's gonna happen on the Day of Judgment when it comes to intercession and it's answers the question of a brother here he was asking previously about where would Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam be as he is interceding? So this actually answers your question I think you probably asked. Yeah.
So it says here the messenger sallallaahu Selim says Iijima Allahu nessa your multi Amma, Allah will gather all people on the Day of Judgment. So everybody is a life.
and they're all collected every single human being who has lived from Adam to the last human all on one plane for you, for Karuna no Stasha and a lot of being a Hatha Yoga, Hanuman Makina. It says if we would can go and ask for someone to intercede so that Allah will bring us relief from these spots from this area that we're standing in.
And we mentioned before, that will be an uncomfortable place to be like all of humanity is standing. And they're standing, they're not sitting.
And it's hot.
Right? It's extremely hot. And even remember what we said about heat, that people will sweat so much that some people will be sweating, swimming in their sweat. It's an uncomfortable, lengthy
So now people are what? So they are discomforted with that they don't know what to do. Allah has not come to judge yet.
And they're just standing and we just standing and standing. What what is this going to end? So what is it that's going to end all of this so they may confer with each other? Maybe if you ask someone to go and intercede on our behalf so that this could end that trouble would end and we could just move forward. Followed by tuna Adam,
they decide that we're gonna go to Adam, so they say enter the Halacha Allahu Brd.
He says you're the one whom Allah azza wa jal created with his hand and Blue in You from his soul and commanded the angels on the prostrated to you fish for Atlanta in the Robina.
So they are listing what Adam Alayhis Salam
had the his honors, is it Allah created you with his hand and blue in your from his soul and as the angels to prostrate so intercede so Allah has created Adam with his what? hand
or with his hands
And Adam is exceptional in that, in the rest of humanity was not created in that way. Adam Alayhis Salam specifically was created with Allah ZAN. So he stands to carry that honor. So that's why they realized it as an honor. By the way, how will people recognize who Adam is? Allah knows. Right? Maybe Maybe they'll be on hills or mountains, they will know who the prophets are I so maybe they'll ask other people Allah knows it doesn't really matter ultimately right but if somebody had this question is going to happen. So anyway, so what is the coffee caffeine mineral Hey, and he blew in you from his soul, from his soul meaning what he created a soul and that soul He came from Allah to
not that Adam is divine
right? Remember that? So mineral Hey doesn't mean that Allah soul part of that went into Adam. So Adam is divine. So all of us are divine. And that's nonsense. Monroe he meaning Allah created that soul and that is attributed to Allah because it's Allah's creation. It did not come from another human being passed on to Adam, but directly from Adam. And that is why by the way, in case you read it in the Quran and the Sunnah, when isa Alayhis Salam is addressed and they said yeah, oh, Allah,
or spirit of ALLAH. What does that mean?
Spirit of ALLAH came out was divided some Toria isn't that right? No, that would it's impossible. Mesa is not divine. What is it? Hola. This is a rooster. Allah created
a few kick Sydney than an example. Okay, Nakata. Hola Hola. como yo en Silas says this is the camel of Allah.
As an idea for you is that camel divine?
A camel is divine. No, Allah created it. Why is it called Nakata Allah? Because it came from rocks is emanated from rock. Right from stone. It wasn't born. So that's why it's not that Allah Allah gave it. Same thing that Allah is this beta larae that Allah dwell in this? No. Right? So so and he asked the angels to prostrate to you. We know this fossa do they did intercede for us? He says, Let's do who now come with guru hardly at the hay side. It's not for me to do this. And he mentions his sin, which is a sin is what eating from the tree. So he says that's not my spot to do this. I'm not fit to do this, even though that thing is forgiven. All right, but he only his Salam. Or you can
even say about the rest of the Prophet alayhi wa Salatu was Salam that is appropriate to he felt that I did not have the qualifications to stand and ask for that. So I'm not going to. And he says, go to the first messenger that Allah had sent, says, If not me, I'll direct you to go to know the first messenger that Allah sent. So
let me see here.
So they come to him. And they asked him and here in this into this version, it doesn't list kind of the honors that new had, but he's the first messenger. But his response is the thing. He says, Let's do who now come with Kudo healthy. He says, not me, I'm not qualified. And he mentioned his sin. So in other narration, it says that, what he listed as the reason to stop him, he said that I have prayed against the feel of the people of this earth and they were drowned in the flood except the believers. He says I don't see myself fit to ask for this. Other scholars have said maybe because he asked that his son be saved. Allah, Allah anyway, he just looks at this mistake. And he says, I'm
not qualified. And I want you here just to enjoy the humility of the messengers of Allah, or the humans. Salatu was Salam because we are here talking about the top of creation, in a sense, in a crude way, competing, right? And they're not competing in a crude way competing for the same job.
Because this is an honor, right? And they're really not in competition, but they're being asked to do what, this is the greatest honor that you could have. And we in the dunya if someone is asking you to assume that position, and lists all your qualifications, what do you do? I could do it.
And definitely I could do it. Yeah, I'll take it. This person is not good enough. Yeah, I am this Enmore. And this person is the first person that Allah created. He created him with his hand. The other person is the first messenger and you'll see the others. Each one of them is so humble, and these are the best of humanity. They say, No, no, I'm not fit to do this. Subhanallah right. But that's the difference is that when you were dad
humble. Allah raises you and when you're a braggart right Allah demotes you right so this is how it works. So it to Musella dilemma Allah
says go to Musa Allah spoke directly to Musa and what an honor that is right? Allah spoke directly to Musa meaning Musa could hear Allah speech with his ears. Imagine just hearing Allah speech with his ears not in the dunya. Right? He could hear it with his ears, in addition to all the other beautiful things that moves that enjoy faces Lister who NACA way of karate,
he says, And he remembers his and they say, and it's listed in another Hadith as he killed him, unintentionally, but he killed them. Well, that's forgiven, but he's still he says, that's, it's enough if Allah just saves me, right, how can I go and ask him for this Subhan Allah.
So he says at ESA
So they come to ESA. And
for your tuna who
write for your coolers to Huneck
them, it's not for me. hot in here it says, Well, if Kuru hot Lea isn't it doesn't mention a sin. Like for isa here, it doesn't mention a sin. And another Hadith in a Tirmidhi it says hey AFOLU, Adobe to minerais Allah, He says I was worshipped without Allah or instead of Allah xojo It's not his sin. But he's saying that that is something that disqualifies me from that position. Kind of, I don't see myself fit to stand before Allah Azza done and I was taken as a god with Allah azza wa jal. I'm not that person. But what come to go to Mohammed Abdullah Adelphia Allahu Mata cut them I mean, then be here without more muda it says but go to Mohammed Ali Salatu was Salam, a servant of
Allah who was all sins had been forgiven, meaning he had come here with no synodal because each one of them is talking about and by the way, I'm sorry, I think we skipped Ibrahim Nam at es Salaam because after an hour, he goes says go to Ibrahim. So Ibrahim is the second best. After Muhammad salatu salam and Abraham he says it's not qualified. Imagine Ibrahim saying to something I'm not qualified. He says I'm not qualified with good or healthy at the he mentions has sinned. They say what is the sin of Ibrahim? It's listed in another narration what's the sin of Ibrahim? They say he lied the three lies and these three lies are from called Tonia the not direct lies, but using double
speak in Nisa team I am sick but if Allah hookah beautiful MHADA their elder Okay, the greatest i Little is the one that destroyed them. Right? Or when he said to Saara his his say to the king, you're my sister. These are not direct lies. But for someone at the level of Ibrahim alayhis salam he remembers. Can you imagine that you do not lie to the extent that you remember three lies.
Can you remember only three lies of yours? Right? Imagine right? With lying left and right day and night, right? I don't remember what I've lied yesterday. Right? It was so much of it. But Ibrahim alayhis salam, he could scan his life and he could say three, right? Only three, right for us. Subhan Allah will Allah mean right? It's like what 3000 3 million Allah Allah may Allah forgive but just to see the difference in levels. So we skipped Ibrahim, okay. So we placed him back in his rightful spot. La Salatu was Salam ala Nabina Kidani Hyla. For Atty. Allah azza wa jal qualify tuna, tuna they asked me and Mohamed Salah is Sydenham accepts it, they know a lot of B. So I seek
permission to approach my Arab for either or a two who occur to Sajida when I see Allah azza wa jal I fall prostrating in sujood right, California only Masha Allah, Allah lets me be in that position as long as He wills
from fire Kulu
il Farah sec. Sell Toyota, right? Let me see here
what could you smash back to shefa?
So he prostrates re Salatu was Salam. O Allah lets him be in that state for as long as Allah wishes. Then I say raise your head and say ask and you will be forgiven, intercede and your intercession will be accepted. Ask and you will be granted.
So now that's the
That's the Chifa.
So, somebody So Fatima who says for alpha ROTC for Amadora BB tell me the new alimony. He says I raised my head. When Allah says Raise your head you
raised my head and I praise Allah and a thank him with praises He teaches me then I do not know now he tells me what to say. And I will say and praise Allah with it meaning that this is something unique. did not hear yet was not unheard and untaught hear from yes for Oh from Asheboro for your help Dooley had di intercede, so Allah gives me a limit of the people of hellfire that I can take out. So he goes, he takes them out of hellfire and puts them in Jannah then he goes back and he prostrates
and Allah tells him price, and then he gives them a limit. So he goes, takes them hellfire and puts them in Jannah and he keeps repeating that Allah fish but with 33 Our Robbia for Mahathir said to Mohammed, you home had a MOBA TF Inara elderman habas Hold on, until the end, where the only people left in Jahannam are those held back by the Quran meaning those who disbelieved?
So it means that here's this process where Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam will ask Allah the first intercession and it's abbreviated here the first intercession is for Allah to start judging people. Because Allah had not yet done that. Just to that people could go to Jana or Johanna. And then after that, he has another intercession. And he is Salatu was Salam where he will say, allow me to get people out of hellfire. So when you said take apart people of hellfire who has this level of iman in them, so that's the heart that's the limit. He goes, he finds them at a Salatu was Salam o he asked for them, gets them out, go to Jana, but there is still Muslims, or believers who are still in
Johanna. So he goes and asks more. And so he'd say go to the next level where people will have less Iman get them out less email and less email and less Amen until people with a mustard seed get out. And there's nothing left except the disbelievers. This is what it says my Bahia 11 habits or who Al Quran.
one thing here and maybe there's a lot of benefits here is you see what is the thing
that unlocks that deadlock?
Is Muhammad sallahu wa salam doing what is just occurred to me right as I was reading it doing what?
Going to sujood and we don't know how long he's going to spend in sujood, right? It could be hours, it could be days, it could be weeks, it could be months, right? His Insitute until Allah has voted displeased and he tells him rise and I will give you any deadlock by the way in your life use the same thing for it.
Anything that is there's a stoppage by things not going well. Like that. It's just nothing is moving. What do you do?
Scheduled, it doesn't mean that you have to be in scheduled like for a day? No. But I'm saying continue to make subdued and to ask Allah and to praise him until Allah azza wa jal like he does with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but on a smaller scale, he says, ask and I will give you
but there needs to be that key to luck to unlock that that luck.
And that has to be going back to Allah has his origin and this is a Muhammad Muhammad, the praise station that only belongs to Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said Alayhi Salatu was Salam in the to the our Tisha attend Luoma to multi Amma I hit I delayed my my one accepted guaranteed to app is this everybody every prophet had that. I kept that for my on the day of judgment to a place and a time to a position where all of creation will be seeking me even Ibrahim Ali's
right even Ibrahim alayhis salam zoo says in some other Hadith you never mentioned, I think in fertile valley, where he said that the prophets of Allah will come and ask Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Do you see what is happening right now? Go and intercede before Allah azza wa jal so Allah could start the judgment of everybody else.
A question that came up can can come up
which is, if we know this, and enough Muslims know this, why do we then on that day have to go through the process of asking Adam Ibrahim and no hen and go down the list? Why not go directly to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right
And these types of questions don't have to trouble you, you say low and and why but it's going to happen that way and that be enough. So you don't need to but for those of us who are sometimes are really too inquisitive for their own good.
We say okay, here Insha Allah, knowing something is not always the same as remembering it. Right? I mean, you could know, but at a time you could also forget, so a either Allah could make you forget it at that time, so that this is going to happen anyway. Or that? Have you? You know, have you encountered situations where you know what to do, but you forget it because of either anxiety or deal or being flabbergasted or whatever, right? You know, but you gotta forgot your name. What's your name? Wait a second, right. So you know your name, but you forgot where is this thing? I don't know. So why does that is that when you're faced with something overwhelming, you could forget. And
here you're being faced with a day of judgment and resurrection and ordeals and troubles and tribulations and you're not gonna forget. So an example of it right if you if you like examples is when
he as he said, sal Allahu Allahu wa salam in a hadith he says Liesl Hubbard will kill more i Anna hearing about something is not like seeing it. Right? So when Allah azza wa jal told Musa alayhis salam about his people and that they are starting to pray to and worship the calf. And he and Musa had that Allah the tablets with them a tablets had what on them? The words of Allah azza wa jal, like Quran had the Torah. So Musa going into to see his people did he know or not know what they're doing? He knew that they're worshipping the calf right? So when he saw them, what did he do?
For alkyl? Allah Alright, he threw it through the Allah threw it away, they broke.
He was so surprised by it. And so unready for what he had seen that he did something that no believer would do, which is can you carry it through the Quran?
No, absolutely not. Why could he do something like this? Because that was so disturbing and so overwhelming. And he knew what he is going to going into, but yet it surprised him enough that he would do something like that. Right? And again, if you want something else, and if you like examples, how many people how many Muslims okay know the description of a mercy hit the gel?
I don't know, really. But I imagine it's there in the Sunnah, right? And that he is coming and what he will say, how many Muslims right have read the hadith of a malady, or at least it's there. And how many Muslims were deceived by claims of a malady being here and there? Right, knowing something is not the same as witnessing it. There are some people who will think what the gel is they go meet at the gel, they say we worship, you know, so don't don't be so surprised of the people on the Day of Judgment, forget this, and Allah azza wa jal once also, to showcase the virtue of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the virtue of the other prophets as well.
These hadith of following a hadith we talked about them before, and he repeats some of these Hadith, either for the sake of the Senate, the narration itself, because he wants to show a stronger Senate or a different Senate. So there's a reason a scholarly reason for it. Or he wants to reiterate that information in this sequence, and he say, and also think about this, I mentioned it before, but also think about it again here, here is a chauffeur he says that he said somebody was seldom that some people will come out of hellfire with the intercession of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and they will enter Jannah and they will be called Al Johanna mean the people of hellfire right, we
talked about this before. And we talked before how that is the doing of Allah azza wa jal. So it's possible that some of them would be with a Shiva of Muhammad and some of them would the doing of Allah alone because the Gehenna mean, in the other Hadith were only Yanni no one interceded on their behalf, Allah took him out. And that's why if you remember that the people of Ghana will call them as Johanna Miyun.
But Allah will say they are what? If you remember,
it's hard to remember it, you know, Allah will say Hotaka or Jabbar,
the one freed by Al Jabbar meaning Allah directly. Right. So, that is that likely is right but it's possible that some of them will come out with the intercession of Muhammad Salatu was Salam. The following Hadith
Is the hadith of Hadith. And remember
the mother of Haritha Radi Allahu Anhu that she came to the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah. He was a lamp. Hala wakad halacha Hadith Hadith to your mother and I saw the horrible Sam. He died he thought was a boy. Right? And he died in the battle of better. We said was he fighting? He wasn't fighting. Okay? He was just watching the camp or watching the food or what have you in the back? Pilaf? Asaba horrible salmon meaning what? An arrow that was aimless that wasn't really directed at him, a wrong arrow just flew and hit him by mistake and he died. So the mother comes. And she said to the prophets, Allah, Allah was silom you know how much I love Hadith. So tell me where he is. Remember
this heading. So tell me where he is. Fame can have an agenda map clearly. If he's in Jannah. I will not cry over him. If he wasn't in Jannah. You will see what I will do.
And he'll see how much I will cry. So to that he said Sal, Allahu Allah, he was seldom do you still have your mind with you? Do you think it's one Jana? It is many genders and he is in the highest dose. So we explained this hadith before. But what Albuquerque adds to it, and he says the Vanuatu feasibility our Oh Ha, Ha You don't mean a dunya or mafia? It says going out droning out. FISA de Lilla.
In the morning, or in the afternoon, just that one journey for the sake of Allah in the morning or in the afternoon is better than this world. And whatever is whatever is in it. While acabo posi haidakhan
Well Acaba, Jose had you come on modero Kadem. infield, Jana. Hi Ramona dunya or mafia and the length of one's bowl, you know the bow and arrow. So one is bow so what is that about a meter or less than that? So the length of that that you possess in Jana is better than this world and what is in it? And the foots just a foot in Jana is better than the world and what is in it? Well, when Amara Alton, Mindy say Haley Jana is taller, or global atma Dinah Houma. Well Amanda at Medina Homare Ha, is is in a woman from paradise where to look onto this earth. I love Obama, you know Houma, he says she will lie to what is between the sky and the earth. Just her light emanating from
her face, she will fill like,
write more than the sun, what is between the heavens and the earth, she will fill it with light, while a mother at mother in law who marry her and her perfume will provide all of that space that everybody would get to smell her perfume. So beauty of face and beauty of smell. Wallah mercyful ha yeah, annual remodel. Hi Ramona dunya. Well, Mafia well Nanase for her meanings, the headcovers that she has, is better than this earth and what is in it?
Okay, Ultramar is a headcover. But in that sense for the woman of Jana, it's decorative. It's not a hijab. So the woman of Ghana are not going to be covered with a hijab, because the model is what hijab, what covers the head, but her Ahmad is not that she's wearing hijab, but she used it for decoration wraps her head with it, use its uses around her neck, what have you, but that's a piece of clothing that she has is better than this entire earth. So, rewind a little bit here to after the story you have had ether
to understand the extent of Heaven and Hell, and that will start with this hadith. You got to atone visa Belinda hit a row Hi Ramona duniya wa if you're if your journey leave your house for the sake of Allah in the morning, and in the evening, that's better than all this earth and what's in it, that could be in jihad.
That could be in hajj, that could be in Salah
that could be in something that is pleasing to Allah azza wa jal, Sevilla primarily Jihad can encompass all of these things. If you do it for the sake of Allah azza wa jal morning and afternoon
that's better than this entire dunya.
And why is that? Because if it's very severely law, it can earn you,
Jana, and the smallest piece of Jana is better than this entire earth.
Okay, and we do we did we talked before about prime real estate, right, the best real estate that everybody competes for it. I mean, in the most congested cities in the world where you would never dream of other cities like that, right? We never dream of owning real good real estate
It's so expensive, so out of reach. But so many people want it because of the privileges that it gives you. You could get work here, you could get this and you could that so that's the best prime real estate. So even if you get a little bit you may consider yourself lucky because I've got the price. I've got the best. Jana is much more than that. Jana is much more than that. Because if you just get what a mirror in Jana, that's better than this entire earth. Can you imagine possessing the all of this earth?
And we said before there is no one single human being? who possessed all of this dunya is there
no one right? You would you would you would take this portion that person but one person to be the king of this dunya there is no such person. If Allah gives you one meter in Jannah, you will be better than the richest person who had ever lived in this dunya just one meter. But guess what, you're not just gonna get one meter. You're gonna get what? acres and acres and palaces and gardens and rivers and stuff. Right.
So we so we feel so unlucky when my apartment is small, and my neighborhood is, you know,
not not so not so modern, not so safe, not so renovated.
And I feel unlucky when I don't have the best job and I don't have the best this and invest that. But you're actually forgetting that you can get the best of everything. If Allah is pleased with you. Forget about, you know, fancy cars and forget about the palaces of this dunya and forget about the woman and forget, because why does Allah Azza to tell you about this woman.
Because some of us may not be blessed enough to be able to marry.
And some of us are, you know, men or you know, women, because if you're a female, right, you're gonna get your satisfaction and gender as well. But some, you know, may get married, but you know, it's not the person that you really want it. Right? If there's always like this gap, male and female, by the way, I'm talking Okay, and hamdulillah great and willing, but you have this longing, this love, there's this and that. And sometimes when that's happening that's nagging. Like, am I missing out? Should I look? I? Where's the love of my life? Right? Where is that a woman that is going to overwhelm with her beauty and Allah and this and that. And maybe Allah had blessed you with
that. And maybe you don't feel it that is there. So So what should I do? If I don't get that? Should I just die out of sadness? And keep thinking about it? Or what? Or is there a way where, or a time where I could find all of this. And that's why Allah azilal tells you about this, if you want to long for something, don't look for the dunya. Because if you do enter Jana, there's a woman like that waiting for you, whether we are talking about a woman of gender, who is from this dunya, who goes to Jana, and gets transformed like this or from Alhamdulillah in it doesn't matter. But this is the amount of beauty that she will have, that she's, you know, brighter than the sun,
you know, most pleasing to the eye and to the ear and to the nose and in ways that are so satisfactory. So
if you're longing for something, and it's not here, whether it's kids, whether it's fame, whether
wait till you get it with Allah azza wa jal and don't expect that the dunya is gonna satisfy you. But the Alfetta will write, and he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even a small possession of hers, right? Which is what headcover that she uses for decoration. That's better than everything on this earth. For God's sake. Yeah. And it's just one thing that he has, is better than everything on this earth. And we're killing ourselves for a portion a fraction of what this earth has and forgetting about Jana that is awaiting the righteous among us. So you remember this? Yeah, Niemann. NEFA, coffee duniya. And Fe Sophie, Akira, if someone competes with you in dunya and makes you feel
small because of what you don't have and what he has compete in the era SLK beat me here.
Not that you want to kind of don't want to be demoted or you know, punished or whatever, but you beat me here. I'm going to try to compete over there, where it's everlasting, where I will get beaten Illa Azur all the things that I did not get in this dunya but on top of that, I will get the pleasure of Allah zodion and to see the face of Allah to hear the words of Allah to be completely safe, to be completely happy. That's what I want to get. And if you get that, it doesn't matter really what you have made
Aside from dystonia, because it will not even be something worth remembering.
Now um We'll stop here in sha Allah see if you have questions about a couple of
always always so the question of the brother Broderick, Allah fake is that Allah Zoda may support and champion this religion with the in pious man he says, Is this specific to a vote logic we say no, this is general. This is general. So you could find you know, nowadays by a person who pro Islam but who's not Muslim, and may not even die as a muslim, although we're asking that everybody who has that type of sentiment that they would accept Islam because that's what really we would want for everybody, especially someone who is sympathetic to Islam, but you could find people who not pious may not believe in a God but they will champion muslims so it could happen now, I am am General
burdock lofi calm inshallah.
ah yeah nice so do the tilava
Yeah, um yes, jonzac Allah harian fossil fear in sha Allah Baraka la Fick. So he said that the prophets Allah wa salam when he prostrated before Allah azza wa jal, right, was there need for widow or no need for widow? Right? Obviously right just sujood by itself, like so do the tilava when you are reading the Quran, and there's a command to make to do sujood and you have a mark next to it to indicate that this is moldy or such a place of frustration. Do you need to do to do this? No.
For that sujood because that's the dude is not salah. You need to look for what
salah but just for sujood you don't need sugar, same thing Baraka lofi to thank Allah azza wa jal do you have to say let me make although and makes you do the sugar know you've received good news, right? And you want to thank Allah azza wa jal you can just fall and prostrate and then make so do you don't need to do right what I said sujood okay, I meant sujood in Salah, so Zack Allah insha Allah for that for that remark. So I said whenever you are facing trouble, you know, do a lot of sujood obviously I meant that to be in the Salah, because other than the Salah there is no place for surgery other than the Salah, where would you do salute other than the two that we've mentioned,
there is no individual situation. So that's what I meant by when you are facing trouble with this life, unlike it and bring ease with your sujood meaning in Lasala law and can index it had a question
No, doesn't matter to which person you give sadaqa to as long as that person is in need. Give them sadaqa right. So even if you find some homeless people in the street, right, and you think that they are in need, and you don't have to verify how unwary they're going to spend this money but you think that that person is in need, you can give them money in sha Allah and just let it go. And that Allah rewards you for that. So we say if if you're nice to an animal, and Allah could give people a person gender because of it. Why not to human being regardless of what that person believes, right? Yeah.
Or yeah, commerical Luffy. So anyone on this side to my left, nothing I told them
now I'm sorry, the first part is what?
To do just sugar No, no, any. We say it's better, right? Better, but like with sudo the sugar Thank you know, so dude out of thankfulness or sudo to tilava. And by the way, the scholars by the way, because I don't want to seem as if I'm presented this opinion as the only opinion that scholars will actually debate this and say this is required that's required. But well lo LM the more accurate opinion and again, ultimately is Allah knows the best is that you don't need will do and you don't need to face the Qibla right, because there are no conditions stated to accompany that act to say do it this way. It just says sujood now of course we say if you have better Facebook bla bla and you
have an option but possibility that's better. But as a necessity though because
In some places you don't always have the opportunity right? So it's just it's a reaction to anatomy that Allah had given you if you can face the Kubla do if you can't you can still prostrate right?
Okay, so this side no one
and no one here. They have a lot of blood. I mean we'll see you in Sharla the same time next week. Subhanak alone will be having a shadow in the island the stuff
Hamdu lillahi Rabbil Alameen
