Have you ever for example, when you when you enter into the country, when you come into passport control? What do you want? You want the person to just take your passport, not ask you any questions and let you go, right? That's what you want.
But when they tell you they start asking you questions, now you uncomfortable.
And then imagine when they send you into secondary for more questioning becomes stressful. I don't know if that happens here. It seems that they're very nice actually, when you're when you're entering. But
it can be a very stressful experience, you get held for two hours, three hours, you get detained five hours, six hours, eight hours. It's very stressful. Well, some people on the Day of Judgment will be stopped. And they will be asked about every small thing and every big thing. And there is nothing more stressful than being asked on the day of judgment.
And so the progress of the light is and it tells us that there will be a group from his ummah, who will not be held at all, they'll just breeze through straight to Jenna. And so the companions that describe them to us a messenger of Allah.
And he said, they are the ones who do not
brand themselves with fire.
They don't brand themselves with fire. And they do not seek Rukia
to be done on them.
They do not seek Rokia to be done on them.
And they rely completely on their Lord.
They and lie to your own. He also said they don't believe in omens, they don't believe in omens. So they don't believe in omens. They don't brand themselves with fire. They don't seek rakia to be done. And then he said waha rabito karoun And they rely completely upon
Dear Lord, you see these others that they're the things that he's mentioning before that I love being alone. These are parts of this concept of doctrine. They don't believe in omens, you know, the Arabs they used to, they used to very much live their lives by superstition.
If a person wanted to take a journey,
and he saw birds flying in a particular direction, he would turn back and go home, because that was a bad sign.
Or they would, for example, not get married in show well, because they felt superstition that that was, that was something that was bad. If you did that, then your marriage is going to be bad.
And many civilizations and cultures still have that. You know, in the US, the number 13 is considered an unlucky number. So until today, you have some buildings, apartment buildings, and what have you, they don't have the number 13. You go from the 12th floor to the 14th floor, even though it's technically still the 13th floor, but they just don't want the number 13. And I'm sure or I hope not, but in Malaysia, there may be some superstitions that people have there are, what are some of these superstitions?
What is it for the number four?
So nobody has four kids. They just have three and then they go straight to five.
The number four is the Okay.
So, these things the Prophet sallallahu Sallam very much changed.
He says there is no such thing as suffer suffer was a month that they saw us actually suffer not sure why I'd rather it suffer he said there is no such thing as suffer. There is no such thing as evil, omens evil birds or anything like that. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam used to like the opposite, actually. So he didn't he and rejected the notion of bad omens. But what's amazing is that the prophets of Allah, Allah Salam, he loved good omens.
He loved positive omens, what were positive omens, positive omens would be something like he would hear the name of a person. And so he would anticipate goodness because of the name of that person. So for example, the famous incident was when he was trying to negotiate. They were negotiating a treaty with the Mexicans, the Treaty of Herdade BIA. And so what the arrays would send one person to negotiate and they'd send another negotiator and finally, they sent him so Hey, Lipner ombre Sohail Suhail is derived from the word son, which means easy. So this man's name is suede. He's the little easy one. And so the province of Elijah seldom when he heard that name he says but sal Allahu. Allah
has made your affair easy. Why? Because he's sending you somebody whose name means easy. So the province of Elijah Selim would like alpha and which is good omens.
