Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah while he was off the edge mine
brothers and sisters said I'm Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
We spoke about how death is the greatest reality.
And that our last panel with iOS said this to the messenger sallallahu wasallam
so worship your Lord, until
the truth comes to you. We also spoke about
the journey of the soul immediately after it has died.
And we mentioned a very interesting verse in the Quran, where Allah says,
who rejected our verses,
and arrogantly oppose them.
The doors of the skies will never open for them.
Until the camel enters for the thread hole of a needle much the needle that you saw with as little hole on the on the notch. What's the possibility of a camel entering through that I lost parent dial is saying, meaning they'll never enter it is impossible for them to enter Paradise off the dose home for them in heaven. We also spoke about whether a dead person sees the angels and the angel of death.
And we said
that there are many indications
in the Quran and the hadith of process and the sooner where Yes, most likely they do see him.
We also spoke about hastening a person's death, hastening a person's body to the grave.
If it is a good soul, then you are hastening it to its rewards. If it is a bad soul, then you are taking this filth off your shoulders.
We also spoke about
what happens inside the grave and the questioning of the to her rytas the to horrendously looking angels,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
when he used to bury the dead with his companions, he used to advise them to stand
for a little while
as long as it would take to slaughter
you know, a small calf or something.
And he would say make dua for your brother
was a hula hoop death beat is to say say this asked a lot to make him firm.
For in the hole and
right now he's being questioned.
Soil is placed over them. And you've ended the burial. It's time for people to leave. But also center says wait. He's being questioned right there. And
first of all, the bettors of life is a life which is a barrier, which has a barrier between this world that we live in and a world that is unexplainable to us. You can't understand it.
It is a life of a certain type with its own,
with its own
with its own unreality
and it is nothing like this world.
And it is not the here after the Day of Judgment nor is this world. It is somewhere in between. Allah says in the Quran, baina Houma barossa hola to hear about the two oceans that meet in this life says between them there is a barrier, the two seas do not mix. So this is the word better. And the same word is used for that life after here before the day of judgment. Allah says in the Quran
he in a homeopath and behind them after the meaning after you die, there is a better world until the day you are resurrected. This points out to us that there is a life barrier that does not mix with this life and does not mix with the Day of Judgment.
But in the verse it talks about not mixing particularly between the life after death and this world that you're living, you can't mix you don't know what
happening to them, they don't know what's happening to you.
And you cannot understand them.
When you are, did you understand what's happened? It's about as a barrier between this life and the next, the when you did before the Day of Resurrection.
This versus world, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam.
As soon as you die, the soul begins to experience the barrels of oil. If you want me to give you a slight example, if you want to get a closer to your minds, in a very slight example, but it's not exactly like that.
Consider dreams. When you're asleep.
Your body is in a room, and everyone can see your body, witness your body, touch your body, hear you.
But your soul is doing something different. seeing something different hearing something different. Isn't that right? It's in a different place than you know where you are sometimes. Or often. But your body is there to the living place of the wisdom who is awake. All I can tell you is I see a body that's sleeping.
But you're in a whole different world. Some people are sleeping, they don't even know that they're sleeping, they think it's reality.
And some people will know that this sleeping when they're dreaming. Have you ever experienced that? You know you're asleep?
So the bettors of world is similar to when your soul goes out when you're asleep. Similar.
You don't require oxygen.
Have you ever seen yourself in your dream underwater?
And you're talking?
Okay, sometimes it's a result of the brain we know that. But also the soul does go to places where the soul doesn't need to survive on what used to your body survives the body survives on food and oxygen but the soul doesn't.
So if you can understand dreams, you can understand that but as a As for me, I don't think anybody understands the phenomenon of dreams and the way the soul comes out when you're asleep. And similarly, we cannot comprehend the world.
This virtual world My dear brothers and sisters, is a temporary station between here and here after the Day of Judgment. In this temporary barrels of oil a person is able to find out if they are going to heaven or hell.
Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
the Hadith the prophet SAW Selim says in el cobre omalu manners in earthhero. For in Nigeria men who had felt about the who a Solomon, were in lumion, German who femme Abba who ushered them in our shadowman.
The grave is the first part of the here after the Day of Judgment.
If he or she is saved, from the punishments and torments of the grave, then whatever is after it is going to be better and easier, he'll be saved from more bigger things. If he has not saved from the torment and punishments of the grave, then whatever is going to come after that is going to be worse.
And we mentioned last week, that a believer when he sees his place in general, and the angels show him in paradise in the grave, he says, Oh, my Lord, let the last hour come, I want to go to gentlemen. And the disbeliever says, when they see their place in Hellfire and Angel show him in the grave. He says, oh my lord, don't let the last hour come, don't let it go. Because he knows that what's going to come after that is going to be worse.
My brothers and sisters in Islam.
When a person goes to the grave, the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim tells us, he or she takes with them three things, one stays and to return. Who knows what that what these three things are.
When we take the body, to the grave, it takes with it three things.
One stays there and to return.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said,
your family and your wealth return, he was not going to go with you in the grave. Unless you do what that? Remember about 30 years ago, this old woman died, she had a beautiful she had this car, this classic car. And that's all she loved in her life. Her children left her family lifted. But she had this beautiful 50 model 50 model car. And in her world, she wanted to be buried with it. So they made the grave huge. And they buried her in the car. If you want to be like that, even then you don't take your wealth, your body decays and your class days, someone comes digs it up and takes it.
But what what comes back is your wealth and your family. Your family forgets you and what I mean by forget I mean they remember you physically in your head, but slowly get on with your life afterwards. What stays with you are your deeds,
your good and bad deeds.
Because that's what's going to determine where you're going to be what's going to happen to you in your grief. Brothers and sisters in Islam.
Letters of life means that a person will be either punished or rewarded in a certain way in there, and it is the sign for what is going to come next.
The province of the law seldom indicates or tells us that the dead people visit each other in their grave.
Now that people visit each other in their grave
for his sets, Allahu alayhi wa sallam
when you Bury Your Dead, then make their coffin make their shroud nice and put on beautiful fragrance to them make them presentable for the people of the graviate Desert when they visit one another.
For the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us about this scenario that it will happen, he said has seen a phantom otaku for inomata. The humanoid is does our own recovery. Sarah make their shroud nice for in a grave.
The dead people visit each other.
And in Sahih, Muslim from salatu salam said either, either cofina
is a katana arducam aho Valeo sanka phenom, if any of you put the shroud on your brother, then
make it presentable. presentable, meaning it's an image for someone else who's going to see it. There is a similar Hadith where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam tells us
that Bury Your Dead with oily Hoon with the righteous people, for the neighboring person of a grave can harm the person who is next to their being punished. They said the Rasul Allah when they did how they're going to be harmed. They said once you get harmed by your neighbor in real life, they said yes it is and therefore when you're dead, you get harmed by your neighboring dead person. So if you can choose a grave that is righteous if you cannot, it's okay Allah and Allah will look after them make the art for them. Evening
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us to think about these moments.
He said, an actor to musically had him and let that
remote 400 held him in let that remote Fender who lemmya tll cabrio inlet a column a fee, for cooler unabated horrible process enemies to say,
talk a lot about death.
not just death, talk about the heat after talk about the purpose of life when you talk about the hereafter means you're talking about
the purpose of why you're actually here.
He said for it is
if you were to
talk about it a lot, then it will help you not to be distracted by what I see.
And when you go into the grave, the grave talks to you.
And the grave says, I am the house of the strangers I am the house of
being alone I am and the prophet SAW Selim said the closest Allah is to his servant or one of the closest times he is to his 70s when he's in the grave, when he has no father or mother, or children, or brothers or sisters to company more friends, Allah spent Allah is therefore for a believer.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us
that a person who is being punished in their grave the animals can hear him or her
Rasul Allah Allah wa sallam tells us in a hadith
where he said
Oliver the alarm on or eyeshadow, the alarm on her, said
two old Jewish women entered my house one time
in Medina, because they were neighbors.
And they said to me, the people of the grave get punished inside their graves.
So I said to them, You are lying. This is not true. People in the gross don't get punished.
Then they left.
Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam entered and I said the Rasul Allah, to old women from the Jews came to me and said, the people of the grave get are getting punished in their graves. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said sakata in Omaha de buena de and the smile when
they spoke the truth. Those two Jewish women,
the people of the grave who are getting punished, they get punished until the animals can hear them.
So the human beings in the genes can
them but the animals can hear them every now and then.
She said, I never saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam after that day
in prayer, or after prayer, except that he would be seeking refuge in a law from the punishment of the grave.
I don't mean to scare you
but it is our deeds which inevitably decide
what the status of our graves are going to be like. In metal little Maria the agenda for Dominica Farina either regarded from the goddess of Paradise or a pit from the pits of hellfire.
So the prophet SAW Selim himself is to say our will be let him in.
Oh my Lord, I seek your protection from the punishment of the grave. And this is what we should be doing as well.
This is the Hadith which is narrated in Buhari by the way.
And in another Hadith prompts are seldom said the smell will be heard in mokulua. All of the animals can hear when he is being punished.
Meaning every now and then, all animals all types of animals can hear.
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed by two graves one time.
This is also say Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim where he saw two graves and sahabas were with him. And he went to some
a particular type of plant. And he cut off a bit of its branches and placed one on one grave and another one on the other grave with his hands. And I asked him, Why did you do that era Salalah. Because that's not normally what you do for people who have died for their graves. This is not the norm, but the assassin and didn't especially just for these two.
He said in the Houma you as the band warmer, you are the Burnaby COVID
they are being punished right now.
But they are not being punished with something big.
What, what he means by something big meaning in our eyes, we don't consider it as a huge thing. But to Allah, it is a big thing. That's why they're being punished because Allah doesn't punish you for something small, will punish you for something that's severe.
That's really severe. But in our eyes, we don't see it as severe because we take it for granted.
He said the first person is being punished
because he used to spread rumors about people and causes bad reputation to others and causes you know, fitness by spreading rumors and gossiping about people
lies about people. And the second person
he used to not
urinate in privacy. So he would urinate in open and people would see his private part. Just like that.
In another scene, it tells us and Allah knows best that he didn't cleanse himself from urination is to pray like that with the impurities deliberately. alone as best either of them are
big sins. He said I placed those clovers
maybe because of my hands placing them Allah spent Allah will lessen their punishment
until the clovers have withered away. And these were Muslims from the mother proud salon.
Or actually they didn't have debit or their law. 100 rated
that once well the Messenger of Allah spent Allah was passing through a grove or a grave, owned by the tribe have been on a job, Arabic tripod been on the job.
The prophet SAW Selim was seated on his camel or his mule.
And the mule unexpectedly turned its course and it seemed that it would throw him down. He was about to throw the prompts I send them off it as if it's afraid of something like when a horse sees a snake.
All of a sudden, five or six graves came into view
the prompts I send them in quiet, does anyone know who I buried in these graves?
And immensely said I do or a companion throws? I said I do.
And he asked when did they die? The prompts are seldom asked, and the companion replied during the days of Jay helia. Yanni the days before Islam came up, the prompts are setting them remarked they are undergoing punishment in the grave.
Were I not afraid that you would and you were not afraid that you would not be able to Bury Your Dead.
I would have been prayed to God to let you to hear a part of the punishment of the grave that I am hearing. And if it wasn't that I knew that you bury each other.
I would have let you hear asked a lot let you hear what I'm hearing right now. But if you will
To hear it, you probably wouldn't bear each other anymore.
After saying is the process of them turned towards us and observed, he said, seek the protection of Allah from the punishment of hell. We all said, I would have been let him in other will cover another bit now from Sam then said seek the protection of a law from the punishment of the grave and they said now the below him and other will cover
the process and then said seek the protection of a law from every mischief manifest as well as hidden so they said no, they'll be let him in and fit an email da da minha mob upon.
The prophet SAW Selim then said seek the protection of Allah from the grievous mischief of dogen. So we said now will be later he mean fitna tidigare
This is the Hadith Prasanna, which is narrated.
correctly in Muslim and also there is a Hadith
of the Prophet SAW Selim, which is in Bukhari and Muslim that now I would like to take you on that journey just for a little while, to witness what is happening in the life of Albert as of right now.
As we are living now, things in the borders of that are occurring. Firstly, before I mentioned this Hadith, the prophet SAW Selim told us that when a person dies, their soul goes to a place, a destination that you and I cannot see or witness in the borders of world.
The soul goes either to where the believing souls and good souls are gathered. Or it goes to where the disbelieving souls and the filthy or the bad souls are gathered. And neither of the two,
neither of the two meet each other.
They're in bliss, they're in punishment.
And when the believing soul goes to the believing place, the believing dead people, their souls run to it.
Like a person who is traveling going overseas, you know, how everyone runs to you to ask you about family and friends that they have Becket, where you came from, right? How are they doing? How's their health? How's So similarly, in the business world, the believing souls run to the to this new soul that is just fresh, dead person. And they asked them about their brothers, their sisters, mothers, fathers, children, relatives, friends, who they have left behind? What are they asking them about? They are asking them about their faith. They're asking them about the deeds, how are they doing, they're coming close to a lot, they've gone astray what's happening to them.
So it means that they miss them.
They miss them, and they want the best for them, but they don't know what's happening to them.
So this freshly dead person says to them,
what he knows about them, if he tells them good,
they become happy.
Because they know that if they die, now, they're going to meet them. They're going to be with them. Especially especially family, any parents and children, family, brothers, sisters, because Allah spent Allah says in the Quran
larina No, what about
the man in
a and those who believe truly, and they died a lot and their offspring believed with them and they died? Allah Subhana Allah, will you reunite them together, and will not take any of their rewards away. So dead people who die believers will follow the believing family. And that's the only concern of the souls of the dead people in the hereafter. As for the bad soul goes to the bad destination. They also run asking.
And if they tell them they're doing good, they're actually get relieved. If they're doing bad, they also get upset
because they have seen what has happened.
But if they go to the believing section, and they ask them where is the soul, or what did our relatives do, or our father or brother or whoever it is, and the freshly that person says he beat he beat me.
Sometimes he might say he beat me he died before me. They become very upset because they know that they didn't come to the believing souls site. He went to the other side.
So they have no idea.
The Prophet salla synonyms journey.
The narrator says, Every time the prophets I send them would meet us in the masjid or see us in a gathering. He would ask who has seen a dream today? Because dreams are another part of prophethood process lm said
when Prophethood goes dies away, the only part of property that is left are dreams. Dreams tell you things
That we don't know. But the dreams agree with the sooner the process and don't go against it. Yeah, they agree with the prophets words, whatever you see the greys with it, for example, somebody might see the hereafter as if the world is ending or heaven or hell, they may see angels and gins and stuff. So these agree with the Hudsucker proxy class. And yet in the Quran, it's not something new. Like someone comes up and says to me, I saw a dream that I'm a prophet.
This disagrees with the deep. One brother comes up to me one day, he says, I've got a special news. You got to do this. And you've got to do that. And it was totally against Islam. I never heard it before. I said, where'd you get this? He smiled and says number that you see, Allah gave me some new message. Because the Prophet said, part of prophethood his dreams, and I'm a prophet now. Look at this delusion.
And I think that's how people become insane out there and they develop new religions. They use this dream issue.
For any dreams that go against the Sunnah is not a dream from a lot mothers from the shaitan. Some people they say, I saw God in my dreams, and I spoke to him.
That's the shaitan trying to make you think it's God.
I think it was
the caudate Agila Anisha pubblicato Gilani, who says,
to the truth about what what we read about him, not the false. He says, I saw a dream of this being come up in front of me full of light. And he said to me,
I'm your Lord. making me think that it's called a lot. So I asked it, and de la Han Allah who led de la ilaha illa. Who are you Allah, the One who there is no other but him.
No God worthy of worship, but him. He said, I'm your Lord. He asked him again until la la de la jolla. Hello. He asked him he said, I'm YOLO. And then he vanished. And he knew it was the shaitan because I should don't cannot answer that question. So I am a shade on kind of say I am Allah who is no God, will you wish. Anyway, the promises enemies that asked this question, one day, the prophets I send them he himself saw a dream. And when the prophecy or dream, it's absolutely true from our last kind of dial and know that they they see from it a lot, or nothing different to us. And he said, Attorney Anthony, Laila,
this night, last night, someone came to me in my dreams, meaning angels, they came to me too.
And they took me into
the skies, into the life of the bursa, into another world of the dead, the world of the dead.
It doesn't say the world of the dead, but processes and means here that it took him to the world of the unseen. And it is the world of the dead soon, you see what I mean? He said, We reached a place
I saw before me, a man who was lying down on the floor,
on his back, and there was another man, a big man holding a huge stone,
he would come up to this man laying on the floor, and he threw the stone onto his head, and it crushed his head, and the stone stone roll would roll away, the man would go to pick up the stone. And by the time he comes back to the to the person on the ground, his head has been restored.
And it crushed it again. Stone would roll away. And you keep doing that over and over. So I asked them.
Who is this man on the floor? And why is that other men doing this to him? They said to me move on, move on. Don't ask questions keep going. He said then we moved on.
Then we passed by a man who had a hook up a brass hook in the front of his hands.
Or actually a man who was sitting down, and it was another man behind him who had a brass hook.
And you placed the hook
on the front of his face from his mouth.
And he would rip his mouth and eyes and then half of the face to his ear, then he would come to the other side of his face, and rip his other side of his face to the other ear.
when he'd go to the other side, the first side is restored, then he do the same to the restored side. And then the other side is restored and they do it again. And keep on doing that over and over again. I sent him asked Who is this person and why is that other men doing this to him. They said move on move on. Said I reached a man who was swimming in an in a in a lake which looked like blood.
And there was another man at the
on the edge. He had stones in his hands. The man would swim to the to the other man the other man would put stones into his mouth and he would have to swallow them and carry them across. And he would bring them out on the other side and he would come back swing back take another stone put her on the other side and continuously do that. said why is this man doing this and who is
The other man, he said move on. They said move on, move on. He said we reached a place.
He said, I saw men and women who were naked
inside of what looked like at the North tanneries like in the olden days, this oven, they used to use these ovens to bake in their bread and stuff. The note is very deep and hollow, and it has fire underneath it very hot in it. He said, I saw men and women in a huge, huge, which is that I could see. And they were hanging in there.
And the fire would burn from underneath and burn them and it would all scream, the firewood come back then it would burn them and all scream and come back. So who are these people? And why is this happening to them? They said move on, move on.
He said I reached and saw a man so tall that I could look up the belly see his face. But it was beautiful. He had a white beard and around him with children. Lots and lots of children.
In a beautiful garden. He said Who is this? And who are these children. They said move on, move on.
said we moved on. And I saw a group of people, a group of men and women people.
One side of their body of their face was the most handsome Mr. Beautiful that I've ever seen. And the other side of their face and body was the most gruesome and ugliest I've ever seen.
Then I walked through a river, and I bathed in it. And then the side that was ugly was restored to be as beautiful as the other side. And so they were completely beautiful as I've ever seen. I asked Who are these people? And why is this happening to them? The angel said move on, move on.
He said I came to a man,
And his face was the most hideous and ugliest I've ever laid eyes on.
And he didn't smile.
I asked Who is this person? And they said move on, move on. Finally, as the dream Dream was almost over, I turned to my companions and I said this night I have seen many strange things.
Can you explain them to me. And they told him
the first person that was having a man crushing his head
is either we don't know the exact of Syria either an example
or it is real, but with Nevertheless, this is what will happen or what it is happening to the person who dies before the day of judgment.
He said that was a man who used to deliberately sleep past his duties, his prayers.
Yet a third karasuma and a saw that his head is too heavy to get up for his praise.
And so he's being punished like this until the day of judgment.
The second person
who were having hooks ripping their sides of their faces to their ears. So these are the people who used to spread lies about other people
walk out of their home and spread lies about this person that person rumors lies and carry on information without making sure if it's true and they carry it about the other people ruining their lives and their reputations. And Amina it's called an Amina
em Shiva and Amina walking in rooms and gossiping about other people
as being replaces punishment till the Day of Judgment. The third person who was swimming and having the stones, he said that he can act in a river. He is the person who consumes interest Riba usury.
Yeah, and he is not in need. It's not a necessity for them to consume ribeye or to take it or to, or to give it and they did it. So they are being punished this way until the day of judgment, what's going to happen is going to be worse.
the people that were in the dinner in a big huge oven underneath and screaming from the heat, where the adulterers and adulterous is fornicators and fornicators as of this home of this nation.
As for the
people who had one side, beautiful on the other side, ugly and they would wash from the river and it would be restored. It said these are the people whose good deeds are equal with their bad deeds. They burn a little bit
or these are the people whose good deeds when enough sorry to make them intergender so they have burned for their bad deeds
and then they are saved from the fire
or they will be saved from the fire and they will cleanse themselves from
River in general, and it'll be restored.
As for the tall man that you saw the children around him that his Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam, and those children are the children of believers and non believers who died before the age in which the say, a placed upon them for the age of maturity.
As for the
man who you saw was hideous and didn't smile, then this is Malik, the angel guardian of the fire of hell find
nepotism among the home of the holy cotton now, he has never smiled since the day the fire Hellfire was created by our last panel died.
And he is the Guardian who makes sure that people have helped by being tortured for the choice of going against the law and refusing his message.
But these are examples of the things that are happening or will happen in the life of the better.
We ask Allah to save us from those punishments
and in Europe and Ireland.
handlebars is this way
around so salani was send them told us here are some of the ways in which the punishments can be lessened or forgiven.
And in your grave, your light can be increased, even though your your deeds are not enough to increase the light or to make your your your your journey better. He said, there are ways that the dead person can still receive benefit in here and in their grave, and estate will be better.
Either method, no Adam in kapa, Malou 11 fellas, when the son of Adam dies, all of their actions are cut off, Allah says nothing that you can do anymore, except for three things.
A righteous child that will supplicate for you.
Or an ongoing knowledge, or a beneficial knowledge which you left behind, that people can benefit from,
or an ongoing charity,
which you left behind that people can benefit from ongoing charity.
In a hadith it says
that a person who is in their grave, their deeds will be enough to give them as much light as it should be. Suddenly they see as time goes on, nor more light and provision is given to them. And they say oh my lord, where is this light coming to me from? And a reply comes to him saying, look, I wanna do Psalm 100 Oh look, you have a righteous child that is supplicating for you.
Now, because this is your work, which you left behind.
So my dear brothers and sisters, your children, your children, let them be your investment.
Not so they can take over your company in this life, but so that they can supplicate for you and be your investment in the hereafter.
Your children can be your biggest enemies in the hereafter.
Or the best thing that's ever happened to you. Depends how you
After the better
the people stay in there for only a lost my dad knows how long the people stay in their graves.
Until the day of judgment arrives. And the last panel what Allah informs or commands the angel is Rafi. To blow into the trumpet for the world to end.
There is when the dead arisen and everyone on Earth and in the heavens, whom Allah wills will die.
The province Allah Selim said you stay in your grace for 40 the companions in the red this had to say we don't know if you meant 40 years, 40 days, 40
hours, aloha lohana 40 months
but you stay for a while before the resurrection. In that state, the body decays it goes and if you opened up a grave UNC your body being punished.
Similar as we said to the example of when you're asleep.
However, it is being punished in a world that you cannot understand or being rewarded in a world that you also cannot understand.
It is a sweetener
for the people to pay condolences to the family of the dead person
and the way we pay condolences. I'd like to take this opportunity to mention this is not necessarily in the cultural way that we are used to these days.
I don't know how your culture is but in my culture in Arabic culture, or Lebanese culture in particular, they have something called the aza for three days. And some of them have it for seven days. Others have it for 40 days. And in that time, they're not allowed to get along with their normal daily duties as they usually used to. Not a lot to be happy, and there's not a lot of celebrating anything.
So they can see they seclude themselves from things. And this is actually a cultural practice, not from Islam.
condolences to the family can be done at any time. It's okay for the family of the deceased to welcome people to their house. That's okay. But you don't have to number days as though the third day after that no one's a letter payment condolences anymore. And I'm upset with you know, condolences can be done even after that. And the way that they are done is not traditionally the way we do them today. In your culture in my culture, there is a more of a burden on the family of the deceased to prepare food and sweets for the people who come and visit them. Is this a celebration?
the Sunnah is quite the opposite. From SAS lm advised us that when we go to visit the deceased of the dead we make food for them
as promised ourselves to say to his wives
make food for early Jaffa
Jaffa had a deceased in their family and he said make food and take it to early Jaffa. This is a time to assist them and to help them integrate. They have to eat, they have to breathe, they have to rest.
We don't go there and make them give us the coffee and the sweets and I went to a
an occasion like this once.
And I didn't have sweets. The people who visited them walked out talking about him saying sure that What's this? We're coming to Isaiah?
You know, and they don't give us sweets.
But kind of in generosity is this? So Panama and the minds are twisted? What can you do? How do you inform this person?
a word of remembrance, they're a word of advice.
Maybe not even advice, a word of of kindness, to make the people assist them. And Muslim is happy for the happiness of their brothers and sisters and is sad with the sadness of their brothers and sisters. We are like one body. And in these occasions we do so.
And it is okay to hug the person and to cry with them if you like.
But the crying over the dead person exaggerated is haram.
It's wrong. And it did person actually according to a hadith did person yet yet the other he can be harmed from the overcrowding of the people of his family on how is this dilemma told us that this means if the person who has died knows definitely that their family will, you know, pinch themselves and hit themselves and rip their hair out and scream and yell. And he doesn't write in his will not to do this. He may be
he may hold accountability for this. Write it in your will. But if he didn't know that he doesn't hold accountability. And if you told them and they continue to do that he also doesn't hold accountability.
Also, in your world, if you have written for someone to do something that's against this, this one of the problems that I send them, you will also held an accountability.
This man wrote, he said, I want you to use $40,000 of my money to build my grave and make it really nice, as much as you can. So that when people come to visit, it's presentable. So Panama if only that Miskin knew that when you die if you're able to come back out you will say to them please stop use that money and give it in charity please I need the rewards. Either method no Adam Katamari lemon says when son of Adam dies, all of his actions are cut off except for three one of them ongoing charity.
And the prophets lie Selim told us in a long Hadith
he used to say there are many forms of ongoing charities.
He said, planting a tree on behalf of the dead is a charity I read in Arabic suborn yejide Andrew Haley lab de vida motiva Cobra, there are seven things which keep going for the dead person benefiting them in a grave while they are dead in a grave. Man Allah Edelman who ever teaches a knowledge Arjuna Harun let go a stream fountain for people to drink from or feed their crops for a half hour a bit run or build a well for people to drink. I was not a sin, Aslan or plant
To the palm tree or any other tree for people to benefit from Oban MSG, den or built a Masjid or contributed in building a Masjid where people come, and if, for example, this mosquito is contributed in it, and they died. For the people who come here and pray, they get rewarded Subhanallah even if it's $1 $1 tribute to them as a worker most often
are left behind them. A Quran or a piece of Islamic knowledge which people can learn from our Torah Kabbalah then yesterday, Allah who are left behind them a child asking Allah forgiveness for them, bad mot after is dead,
then all of this will benefit the dead person.
Some scholars say that this hadith has some issues with but its meaning is correct and it supports the meaning of the other Hadith, which ongoing charity knowledge which has beneficial and righteous child who will make it for you. If the method and the way that you die also assist you in your grave. Like a person this is actually spot on a hadith Professor Salah, the person who dies guarding the believers for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala will be forgiven all their sins and in the grave, they will see nothing of this whole of this thing. And it also saw Selim said every person Muslim or practicing are not Companion of the process anymore, not they will have done metal cover
the grave will actually
tighten upon them and then release and also saw sin and said, if anyone was to be saved from that, it would have been sad. But even he was not saved from an alarm island with the wisdom of that. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to save us from home at piano from the punishment of the grave from the terrorists of the year after
