00:00:01--> 00:00:03

Salatu was Salam and out of Sunni and Karim,

00:00:05--> 00:00:10

Allah and he was happy for many standing up recently to Medina

00:00:12--> 00:00:19

offers due to a lot and a lot of Peace and blessings in his last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:00:20--> 00:00:24

and then all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.

00:00:25--> 00:00:25

And today's

00:00:27--> 00:00:28

the Imam

00:00:30--> 00:00:30

continuing

00:00:32--> 00:00:33

on that theme,

00:00:35--> 00:00:37

which has to do with death.

00:00:39--> 00:00:40

Last week,

00:00:41--> 00:00:42

he spoke about

00:00:43--> 00:00:44

why people feared death,

00:00:46--> 00:00:49

when death is something which is inevitable,

00:00:51--> 00:01:07

and he basically encouraged us to reflect on death, and to prepare ourselves for that, because the main reason why we fear it, because we don't know what is to come.

00:01:08--> 00:01:12

However, Allah has informed us what is to come.

00:01:13--> 00:01:18

And in this would love basically he expanded on what is to come.

00:01:21--> 00:01:21

If a person

00:01:23--> 00:01:23

dies,

00:01:24--> 00:01:28

he either meets one of two situations,

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

either one,

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

which is a terrible and

00:01:37--> 00:01:46

or one, which is a beautiful and pleasurable and it's either one or the other. When a person dies.

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

So the amount began

00:01:50--> 00:01:55

by looking at the case of those who disbelieve in this life,

00:01:57--> 00:01:58

those who have rejected faith,

00:02:00--> 00:02:02

either openly

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

or those who reject it. In fact,

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

this includes even those people

00:02:12--> 00:02:18

who refer to themselves as Muslims may have Muslims written on their documents.

00:02:19--> 00:02:24

But in fact, they are not. Because Islam is not a name.

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

That is tied title.

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

It is a way of life.

00:02:30--> 00:02:34

So all those who reject the way of life of Islam,

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

they will have a terrible end.

00:02:41--> 00:02:45

A terrible life in this life, as well as in the next.

00:02:47--> 00:02:57

And he quoted the verse in the Quran, in which a lot of Allah said, from an Arab and decrease in the lahoma issues and bunker, that is, whoever

00:02:59--> 00:03:02

goes away from my remembrance.

00:03:03--> 00:03:08

who turns away from the remembrance of Allah will have

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

a wretched life.

00:03:14--> 00:03:17

That wretched life may not be apparent to us.

00:03:18--> 00:03:19

We see people

00:03:20--> 00:03:28

who are apparently disbelievers, they have tasted soap, but their life seems to be a pleasurable life.

00:03:30--> 00:03:31

The super rich

00:03:33--> 00:03:34

live

00:03:36--> 00:03:57

what seems to be very comfortable life wherever we are. The super rich are not just in America, are here in Saudi Arabia or England, Europe, etc. The super rich are everywhere. They're there in Philippines. In spite of the low state of the economy in Philippines, you have people there who are super rich

00:04:00--> 00:04:01

multimillionaires.

00:04:02--> 00:04:03

Living in Tallinn.

00:04:06--> 00:04:07

They're everywhere.

00:04:08--> 00:04:12

And they seem to live a very pleasurable life.

00:04:14--> 00:04:18

And everybody else wishes that they could have lived like their life.

00:04:20--> 00:04:20

However,

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

when you actually go into their life

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

what you find in there is wretchedness.

00:04:30--> 00:04:33

They live wretched life, spiritually.

00:04:35--> 00:04:36

psychologically.

00:04:39--> 00:04:41

They're never satisfied with what they have.

00:04:42--> 00:04:44

They're always worried about people trying to steal what they have.

00:04:46--> 00:04:50

There's infighting going on constantly turmoil within the family.

00:04:52--> 00:04:53

It's not a pleasurable life.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

There are pleasures in it. Just as there will be pleasure in the poorest person's life.

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

person who seems to have nothing,

00:05:04--> 00:05:07

that person will still find pleasures within his life.

00:05:09--> 00:05:09

However,

00:05:11--> 00:05:24

the pleasure which a person finds within his life in spite of his economic state, which comes from contentment with a law

00:05:26--> 00:05:32

believes in a law which gives him a state of contentment, where he can accept a law of destiny,

00:05:33--> 00:05:35

and live in accordance,

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

that contentment and peace of heart that he finds

00:05:42--> 00:05:43

can never be bought.

00:05:45--> 00:05:48

All the riches of the earth cannot buy.

00:05:49--> 00:05:51

So those people who appear to be

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

so rich,

00:05:54--> 00:06:02

living such pleasurable life, in fact, the lives informed us, their lives are quite wretched. And from time to time,

00:06:04--> 00:06:09

if you follow the newspapers, etc, when they are talking about the lives of certain people, you'll find

00:06:10--> 00:06:17

some information is leaked out about the trials and tribulations that they face within the family.

00:06:21--> 00:06:22

But when they die,

00:06:24--> 00:06:31

those who have turned away from the remembrance of Allah when such died, it is even more terrible.

00:06:32--> 00:06:36

The wretchedness of this life is nothing in comparison to the wretchedness of the next.

00:06:40--> 00:06:41

When that person dies,

00:06:42--> 00:06:46

the soul is torn out of the body

00:06:50--> 00:07:01

is torn out, painful extraction, the angel of death was thrown out of an when the soul is coming out into Sunday, which is painful, torture is

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

not an easy death.

00:07:06--> 00:07:07

Now, again,

00:07:09--> 00:07:24

we see people who may be the worst of creation, they seem to die easily. Hitler, according to what reports we have, we put a gun to his head, blew his head off, and there was all over spite of all that he did before another

00:07:26--> 00:07:36

the death seems to be quick and simple. Or somebody might even die, this lever in front of you see them dying, maybe they die with with what appears to be even a smile on their face.

00:07:39--> 00:07:45

However, again, what we're talking about is something which is beyond our vision.

00:07:46--> 00:07:57

This is why a law, to the Koran through the statements of the problems by Salaam, informed us of these things, because these are things that we can perceive.

00:08:00--> 00:08:14

We're only seeing the physical, we don't know what is going on, on the spiritual plane. So what we're talking about here is what is happening to this person, on a spiritual plane, in a plane, which is beyond our vision.

00:08:17--> 00:08:23

That person, so is extracted in the most painful image imaginable manner.

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

The what is is extracted.

00:08:29--> 00:08:29

Angels

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

will take it up to the heavens.

00:08:36--> 00:08:47

And those angels who extract it find it to be something which is so filthy. And so think that they can hardly hardly want to hold it. They carry it up to the heavens.

00:08:48--> 00:08:52

And they enjoy that they come across on the way

00:08:53--> 00:08:57

all ask them what is this terrible smelling? Evil

00:08:59--> 00:09:02

smell and they will refer to as the solid thoughts.

00:09:04--> 00:09:07

And it will be taken up

00:09:08--> 00:09:09

to the first of the heavens

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

to the door which opens into the heavens.

00:09:15--> 00:09:21

And the Guardian will question again about the soul. What is it

00:09:22--> 00:09:29

and they will Angel report that this is the soul of Toronto and the doors will not open for that soul

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

and it will be kept back down to the earth.

00:09:37--> 00:09:46

And the amount of portraits of verses from the Quran which you know referred to a lot describing disbelievers that they will fall from the sky You know, like

00:09:49--> 00:09:56

terrible fashion. This soul will fall back from the sky thrown down back into the body again

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

and at that point

00:10:02--> 00:10:03

two angels will come to

00:10:09--> 00:10:15

two very fearful angels known as one cub, and mature and they will the soul

00:10:16--> 00:10:17

was your Lord?

00:10:20--> 00:10:22

The soul would answer, I don't know.

00:10:25--> 00:10:29

What is your religion? will answer, I don't know.

00:10:32--> 00:10:36

And was your profit wonder was 75

00:10:38--> 00:10:39

to be incapable of

00:10:41--> 00:10:46

not that that individual did not in this life hear

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

about the religion of Islam,

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

the religion of Allah

00:10:55--> 00:10:58

or about the topic

00:10:59--> 00:11:00

or about the law,

00:11:02--> 00:11:11

that person may very well have heard all these things. However, at that time, they will be incapable of giving the right answer.

00:11:14--> 00:11:18

And this is part of the degradation.

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

The

00:11:23--> 00:11:30

calamities which will be which befall the person who dies, from the time that the soul is extracted,

00:11:32--> 00:11:43

it will know inside itself but it's set up it isn't capable of and because he's incapable of saying then things are getting worse and worse for it, but it cannot change that

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

process which has begun.

00:11:48--> 00:11:51

At that point, the command will be given

00:11:52--> 00:11:53

that that goal

00:11:56--> 00:12:01

should get for it spread for it's a bedding of fire.

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

And this will be us in fire

00:12:06--> 00:12:08

and the door or window

00:12:10--> 00:12:12

opening on the Hellfire will open.

00:12:14--> 00:12:21

And the scorching wind from that Hellfire will be passing over that body. That's all

00:12:26--> 00:12:27

and it will stay in that state

00:12:28--> 00:12:30

until the point of resurrection,

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

wireless is in that state

00:12:35--> 00:12:40

a filthy, stinking evil figure will approach it

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

and the song was up

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

for you.

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

And it will say

00:12:48--> 00:12:50

I am your evil deeds.

00:12:56--> 00:12:59

And at this point the disbelievers

00:13:01--> 00:13:03

they wish that they never

00:13:05--> 00:13:06

that they were done

00:13:09--> 00:13:12

these who had everything of this life

00:13:13--> 00:13:14

wishing they had more.

00:13:16--> 00:13:17

And the next wish

00:13:18--> 00:13:21

that they never even came into existence.

00:13:25--> 00:13:26

They will be surrounded

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

when they are gathered

00:13:30--> 00:13:31

for the judgment

00:13:32--> 00:13:33

there will be unchained

00:13:35--> 00:13:43

as a further means of degradation, others will see them they will be raised up to the others and they will be chained up

00:13:46--> 00:13:47

like a person

00:13:48--> 00:13:48

who

00:13:51--> 00:13:51

has been

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

judged

00:13:55--> 00:13:55

to die.

00:13:57--> 00:14:25

You know what is coming. And everything that you do is just bringing you a step closer to that point. You are to be executed, committed murder, and you know you're gonna be killed every step every minute, everything that you do now brings you closer and closer to that point. So these people from the time of death, see they're going through a series of fortress, a series of

00:14:26--> 00:14:32

of circumstances which just further increase their state of grief.

00:14:38--> 00:14:39

And they will be thrown into hell.

00:14:41--> 00:14:45

After judgment after seeing what they've done in this life.

00:14:47--> 00:14:51

They know where they deserve to go but Allah will show them all that they did

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

to further

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

increase that type of grief.

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

And then how

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

they will be increased in size.

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

We know that Adam, according to what the problem

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

was

00:15:21--> 00:15:22

a huge figure.

00:15:29--> 00:15:33

And those going into health will be increased in size.

00:15:35--> 00:15:37

Similarly, on morsel

00:15:39--> 00:15:40

I didn't know

00:15:42--> 00:15:43

they will be burned,

00:15:45--> 00:15:47

from the outside to the inside,

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

they'll be burned

00:15:51--> 00:16:00

right up to their heart to the heart of burns when their hearts are burnt, then they're reformed again. And the process starts again, with a continual process.

00:16:07--> 00:16:14

And because of the heat, the intense heat of the fire, they will be overcome by an intense thirst.

00:16:16--> 00:16:18

When it gets very hot, you feel

00:16:20--> 00:16:31

naturally there because the heat of the fire there is beyond our comprehension, something which is unimaginable, then the thirst that the person feels in that state becomes even beyond anything we could comprehend.

00:16:34--> 00:16:35

But what they will get to drink

00:16:37--> 00:16:39

is the worst imaginable.

00:16:43--> 00:16:46

And of the drinks that they're given.

00:16:49--> 00:16:52

Cause the stomach to burn, boil,

00:16:53--> 00:17:00

boil in their stomach, and increase their thirst further, to the point where they will go and drink Fire.

00:17:01--> 00:17:05

Fire which would appear like lakes, they will drink it to try to remove that.

00:17:07--> 00:17:07

But

00:17:08--> 00:17:10

it's just increasing everything is directed.

00:17:13--> 00:17:18

And they will feel throughout this as if they're going to die as if death is overcoming them from all sides.

00:17:20--> 00:17:21

But they don't die.

00:17:23--> 00:17:35

They go through a point which law was like that, like they go out of existence, that whole process of dying, they go through it again. But then it starts all over again. So it's a continual portrait that they feel

00:17:37--> 00:17:38

and they will take the angels

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

to let them die.

00:17:41--> 00:17:47

But the angels are commanded that they be where they are forever.

00:17:51--> 00:17:56

And as I said, this is all information from the Koran and from the Sunnah,

00:17:57--> 00:17:59

informing us of things

00:18:00--> 00:18:03

which are in fact beyond our comprehension.

00:18:05--> 00:18:06

A law uses words,

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

the problem doesn't them use words.

00:18:11--> 00:18:15

But these words are only to try to give us something of an idea.

00:18:17--> 00:18:20

Just as if I tried to describe to you something you've never seen,

00:18:22--> 00:18:23

something you've never tasted,

00:18:26--> 00:18:33

I can only give you something of an idea, but the reality is, you can be sure will be far greater,

00:18:35--> 00:18:37

it will be far far greater.

00:18:42--> 00:18:43

On the other hand,

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

those who do good

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

based on righteous deeds,

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

whether they are male or female,

00:18:55--> 00:18:56

they will be given a good luck.

00:18:59--> 00:19:00

This is the promise of a law

00:19:03--> 00:19:04

in both this life and

00:19:06--> 00:19:08

in accordance with what they have done,

00:19:09--> 00:19:10

this is a lot.

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

This is why we said that

00:19:15--> 00:19:18

the righteous even though on the outside

00:19:20--> 00:19:23

they may appear to be in very

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

difficult circumstances.

00:19:26--> 00:19:28

poverty stricken

00:19:29--> 00:19:32

people may die in their families, disease, all these kind of things.

00:19:34--> 00:19:37

On the outside they may appear to be having difficult

00:19:38--> 00:19:39

However,

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

on the inside,

00:19:42--> 00:19:44

a lot gives them

00:19:45--> 00:19:49

a certain state of contentment

00:19:50--> 00:19:53

which allows them to handle all the circumstance

00:19:56--> 00:19:57

all the circumstances of this life

00:19:59--> 00:19:59

experiences

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

A pleasure which comes from the faith in allowance is something which cannot be described.

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

thought about it as the sweetness of

00:20:14--> 00:20:15

whoever it is that

00:20:18--> 00:20:28

never go straight. When a person has understood this is why, when we hear about, for example, people being converted, from Islam to Christianity,

00:20:29--> 00:20:30

or Islam to

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

communism, slums, whatever

00:20:35--> 00:20:38

we can be tested. These people didn't know what Islam was.

00:20:41--> 00:20:44

Because when they first taste the sweetness of faith,

00:20:46--> 00:20:51

to go back to this belief, after having realized that faith,

00:20:53--> 00:20:56

would be like one to jump into a fire,

00:20:58--> 00:21:10

knowing what is going to be, the fire is going to be like, you know what, what fire is like in this life is to go and indeed, on the stove and get such a burden for you to deliberately throw yourself into fire.

00:21:12--> 00:21:12

You want.

00:21:16--> 00:21:24

So those who are converted, in this fashion is the people who have not tasted the sweetness.

00:21:25--> 00:21:37

And this is all that we all should strive for. Strive to realize the sweetness of faith, to submit them to commit ourselves to allow

00:21:38--> 00:21:41

for that we feel inside of ourselves.

00:21:45--> 00:21:46

A contentment

00:21:49--> 00:21:51

we feel not inside of ourselves

00:21:52--> 00:21:55

a sense of

00:21:56--> 00:22:06

reality, a sense of knowing what this life is about, which enables us to handle anything that we can be faced with in this life.

00:22:09--> 00:22:23

We realize the promise of Allah, that he does not burden any soul greater than it can be. And whatever difficulties we are faced with a law will take us to a time of ease.

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

Difficulty only improves

00:22:30--> 00:22:33

when the person tastes that reality of face,

00:22:34--> 00:22:37

then everything serves to increase

00:22:40--> 00:22:43

the good and all of it increases actually.

00:22:47--> 00:22:49

When such a person dies,

00:22:51--> 00:22:54

they are given glad tidings from the time of death.

00:22:55--> 00:23:02

And the amount quoted the verse in the Medina called robina. Last month Docomo settlers melodica

00:23:03--> 00:23:05

the those who

00:23:07--> 00:23:10

say that align their Lord and do right

00:23:12--> 00:23:13

the angels

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

come down on them

00:23:17--> 00:23:20

and give them glad tidings, what is to come,

00:23:21--> 00:23:23

their soul will leave the bodies

00:23:25--> 00:23:27

like water dropping

00:23:28--> 00:23:32

from a water skin or like from a glass just pours.

00:23:34--> 00:23:34

No resistance.

00:23:37--> 00:23:40

They will be when the soul comes out they will be wrapped in

00:23:42--> 00:23:42

perfume

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

from Paradise, there will be taken up the soul.

00:23:49--> 00:23:51

And the sweetness

00:23:52--> 00:24:04

of the smell will attract the angels they will be asking what is this beautiful smell and they will dance and the angels were taking them up. Taking up the soul will say to so and so.

00:24:05--> 00:24:12

And at the frog heaven the doors will open. The angels will welcome them in welcome beautiful

00:24:13--> 00:24:20

perfume, sweet smelling soul and through all the heavens up to the seventh heaven, that soul will live.

00:24:24--> 00:24:31

And in the seventh heaven, Allah will command that soul record be recorded in what is known as MB.

00:24:34--> 00:24:35

The record of the righteous

00:24:36--> 00:24:37

will be

00:24:38--> 00:24:39

in paradise.

00:24:41--> 00:24:45

And then the soul will be taken gently back down

00:24:47--> 00:24:51

to the body to continue the process to resurrection

00:24:54--> 00:24:55

and there

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

the angels will come to it and get it out.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

As it as the sole of the disbeliever,

00:25:04--> 00:25:10

who is your Lord? What is your religion, who is your profit, and of course, that all will have the right

00:25:14--> 00:25:16

and it will be further given class sizes.

00:25:17--> 00:25:21

And the command will be given for bedding from Paradise to be spread out,

00:25:23--> 00:25:31

it will be closed in the clothing from Paradise, and a window on fire that will be open, it will also be shown

00:25:33--> 00:25:49

in Hello window and hell will be open and they will see the place that would have been for them in health, had they not thinking the righteous mind. And that is not any form of punishment, but only to increase their happiness. Because when you see what what has happened to you,

00:25:51--> 00:25:55

and you know, you're not going to happen to you, of course, this makes you feel that much happier.

00:25:56--> 00:25:59

And that window I find that will be open and

00:26:01--> 00:26:07

who wins from it will be passing over that. So until the time of resurrection.

00:26:13--> 00:26:17

And at the time of resurrection, that's all greeted by Angel.

00:26:19--> 00:26:21

And it will come without fear.

00:26:24--> 00:26:25

The judgment will be easy.

00:26:27--> 00:26:29

Some of those will not even be judged.

00:26:30--> 00:26:36

Depending on the what they did in this life, they are amongst the marketers, etc. They'll be heading straight to paradise.

00:26:41--> 00:26:50

And, as promised, that's all we protected from all evil on that day. And that day of judgment

00:26:51--> 00:26:56

which is something which all of us should reflect on

00:26:59--> 00:26:59

how we are living

00:27:00--> 00:27:04

and how we will stand up on that day

00:27:05--> 00:27:09

when all of the deeds that we have done are laid out for us.

00:27:12--> 00:27:13

Are we prepared?

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

Let us not think

00:27:20--> 00:27:24

that because we are Muslim, because we have accepted Islam

00:27:26--> 00:27:30

that we are guaranteed at least in fact, no.

00:27:33--> 00:27:34

We have to work

00:27:35--> 00:27:40

we have to work for it. We have to make our commitments real

00:27:45--> 00:27:47

the perfume of Paradise

00:27:50--> 00:27:52

is something described as being

00:27:53--> 00:27:55

so strong, so beautiful,

00:27:56--> 00:27:59

that it could be smelled from 50 years journey away.

00:28:02--> 00:28:08

We'll be greeted those who are going to find that Chawla will be greeted phenomenally

00:28:10--> 00:28:11

these beyond

00:28:14--> 00:28:17

and those guys were inspired to enter it in a state of eternal youth

00:28:22--> 00:28:26

10 of pearls will be for them so wide.

00:28:28--> 00:28:38

That it is like that of 60 miles. Something unimaginable for the firm is the little thing that we know. But in Paradise, they'll be

00:28:39--> 00:28:46

made out of pearls which will be hollowed in the inside. So why so large that it would be like 60 miles

00:28:49--> 00:28:50

and there will be trees

00:28:51--> 00:28:52

fruits

00:28:53--> 00:28:56

beyond our comprehension trees whose shade

00:28:58--> 00:29:03

is so expensive that you could travel for 100 years and still be under the shade.

00:29:06--> 00:29:07

Trees

00:29:08--> 00:29:20

which will have fruit some of which will have the name like the names that we know in this life is this life like grapes, pomegranates cetera, but the taste is like nothing of this life.

00:29:22--> 00:29:26

There will be rivers passing on to the earth of paradise.

00:29:27--> 00:29:40

rivers of water, Amani milk and a wine but not carrying any of the corruptive factors that exists. In this life. The rivers will be pure,

00:29:41--> 00:29:44

there will be nothing in it. No mystery is nothing to

00:29:45--> 00:29:46

defile.

00:29:47--> 00:29:48

The honey

00:29:49--> 00:29:51

will be pure.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

Not mixed with anything else. The milk will be pure will not go back

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

The wine will be pure, this will not make us intoxicated.

00:30:08--> 00:30:23

And the dress that we will wear, will be with all of the best of this life, the goal the silver, brocade, silk, etc, all the things that in this life, Allah has commanded us

00:30:24--> 00:30:25

to avoid

00:30:27--> 00:30:28

the gold and the silver,

00:30:29--> 00:30:34

which in this life is presented to us, that life is for us.

00:30:37--> 00:30:42

This life, these things have been prohibitive, so that we don't

00:30:43--> 00:30:44

spend all of our efforts

00:30:46--> 00:30:49

trying to gather around the things which we cannot take with

00:30:51--> 00:30:52

the materials of this life,

00:30:54--> 00:30:57

we tried to deal with what is necessary,

00:30:58--> 00:31:04

whatever wealth we gather, we tried to use it in a way which is going to benefit us in the next life.

00:31:05--> 00:31:12

Not as a means of ostentation, showing ourselves to be better and etc, than those people around

00:31:14--> 00:31:17

but using it, knowing that this is a gift from Allah.

00:31:19--> 00:31:24

And we have a duty to use this in a way which is pleasing to Allah.

00:31:26--> 00:31:32

So that we will earn from whatever we spend reward from a locked in the next slide.

00:31:38--> 00:31:40

And loads of Paradise

00:31:42--> 00:31:43

will be so happy.

00:31:46--> 00:31:46

They will

00:31:47--> 00:31:49

laugh at those inhale.

00:31:53--> 00:31:57

As those in this life, laugh at the believers

00:31:58--> 00:31:59

in this life,

00:32:01--> 00:32:02

the disbelievers

00:32:03--> 00:32:05

they laugh at the believers,

00:32:06--> 00:32:08

they scored them make fun of them.

00:32:10--> 00:32:11

And the next life

00:32:13--> 00:32:20

the believers will have the last laugh. As they say, he will laugh, laugh, laugh

00:32:24--> 00:32:25

and the problems.

00:32:26--> 00:32:29

I quoted a live thing that he prepares the entire day

00:32:31--> 00:32:35

for his righteous servants, what no i has ever seen.

00:32:37--> 00:32:39

Or any ear has heard

00:32:40--> 00:32:42

or any mind has thought.

00:32:44--> 00:32:45

So all that we're talking,

00:32:46--> 00:32:49

again, as I said, are only

00:32:50--> 00:32:50

terms

00:32:51--> 00:32:54

to give us something of an idea

00:32:57--> 00:33:00

to encourage us to strike.

00:33:02--> 00:33:05

Because it is beyond our comprehension.

00:33:07--> 00:33:12

We don't really know what it is. But what we can be certain is that it is good.

00:33:15--> 00:33:16

That's the bottom line.

00:33:18--> 00:33:21

In this life, we like the good things.

00:33:22--> 00:33:24

And we don't like the evil things.

00:33:27--> 00:33:29

We try to avoid the evil

00:33:30--> 00:33:32

and collect the good.

00:33:34--> 00:33:35

We have to think

00:33:36--> 00:33:37

we have to think

00:33:39--> 00:33:41

in the next slide. The same thing.

00:33:42--> 00:33:46

Except it's not a question of collecting and avoiding anymore.

00:33:47--> 00:33:48

It's a question of receiving,

00:33:50--> 00:33:56

you receive good in the next slide. Would you like this life if you have done good in this life.

00:33:58--> 00:33:59

But doing good

00:34:00--> 00:34:07

may involve doing some things we don't like. In fact, it may be involving many things we don't like.

00:34:09--> 00:34:10

And avoiding evil

00:34:12--> 00:34:15

may involve many things that we like

00:34:17--> 00:34:18

which are pleasurable.

00:34:20--> 00:34:26

So that's why we have to think in this life what we're doing, not just what is good and pleasurable to us.

00:34:27--> 00:34:32

We do we avoid what is good and what is evil and unpleasant.

00:34:34--> 00:34:37

What appears to us to be unpleasant, it is not as simple as that.

00:34:40--> 00:34:45

What is good is what a law has defined as good.

00:34:46--> 00:34:55

What Allah and His messenger. The Messenger of a mark came to convey to us the realities of good in this life

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

and to explain to us the reality

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

Have evil in the flesh.

00:35:03--> 00:35:08

So we have to follow that explanation. We have to follow

00:35:09--> 00:35:19

those clarification and choose what is pleasing to Allah. Not necessarily what is pleasing to us if it is pleasing to us and to 100 enough.

00:35:21--> 00:35:24

But if it's pleasing to Allah displeasing to us, we feel as

00:35:26--> 00:35:31

if we are to be blessed with the good of the next life.

00:35:32--> 00:35:37

So, we have to use our intelligence or intellect,

00:35:40--> 00:35:42

we have to know

00:35:43--> 00:35:48

what it is the law wants from us, we often understand the religion.

00:35:49--> 00:35:52

But enough to say, I'm a Muslim.

00:35:54--> 00:36:02

And I do what everybody else does. No, we have to understand what it is what this religion is.

00:36:06--> 00:36:10

So that we can do what a law requires of us.

00:36:11--> 00:36:15

So we must seek knowledge is why Prophet Mohammed

00:36:16--> 00:36:19

told us that the seeking of knowledge is compulsory for everyone.

00:36:20--> 00:36:24

Because if we don't seek knowledge, we won't know what it is Allah wants from us.

00:36:29--> 00:36:30

So we must

00:36:33--> 00:36:36

learn the religion properly.

00:36:39--> 00:36:45

Be very anxious, just like somebody tells you listen, I have a job for you.

00:36:47--> 00:36:53

If you learn this, or learn that, learn how to do this, I've got a very good job for you is paying

00:36:54--> 00:37:02

10,000 $15,000 a month, you're going to go to that first store, you can buy that book and start studying this thing.

00:37:03--> 00:37:07

You're going to be very, you know, anxious to try to get this job. You know,

00:37:09--> 00:37:09

that's real.

00:37:12--> 00:37:14

But you are so anxious to do it

00:37:15--> 00:37:18

for something which you cannot take with you.

00:37:19--> 00:37:22

Yet, when somebody says,

00:37:24--> 00:37:25

read about Islam,

00:37:27--> 00:37:28

study the religion.

00:37:31--> 00:37:32

You can't find time to do it.

00:37:35--> 00:37:37

I'm working my work hours

00:37:39--> 00:37:46

too long. When I get home, I'm tired, I need to wash my clothes, I need to get some sleep, so I can get up in the next morning.

00:37:49--> 00:37:49

So

00:37:51--> 00:37:54

days, months, years go by

00:37:56--> 00:37:59

and your knowledge of Islam is not increasing.

00:38:01--> 00:38:08

So what happens, it means that you end up doing many things, which are displeasing to Allah,

00:38:09--> 00:38:10

anything.

00:38:12--> 00:38:21

So though you think that you are become a Muslim or that you are a Muslim, and you are going to paradise because you are doing some good things,

00:38:22--> 00:38:29

you are also doing so many other evil things, that these will override the good

00:38:30--> 00:38:32

and cause you to go to hell.

00:38:34--> 00:38:36

So the same way, that you will be so

00:38:37--> 00:38:40

concerned, so anxious,

00:38:41--> 00:38:55

to know what is going to improve the quality of your life in this life. You should be even more anxious to know what is going to give you a better life in the next which will be at everlasting

00:39:01--> 00:39:01

faith

00:39:03--> 00:39:06

real faith which affects our actions.

00:39:09--> 00:39:12

When the doctor tells you take this medicine,

00:39:15--> 00:39:15

you know

00:39:16--> 00:39:18

certain medicines that taste

00:39:19--> 00:39:26

what the doctor tells you take this medicine is going to get you there. Though your desire is against

00:39:27--> 00:39:40

you know maybe it makes you feel like you want to vomit, horrible smelling horrible tasting. But your intellect your intelligence tells you that you have to take this because you want to get better.

00:39:41--> 00:39:50

So you go ahead and you take it because you have faith in that doctor and in that medicine that it is going to get you better

00:39:53--> 00:39:54

What about faith in a lot

00:39:56--> 00:39:57

and then medicine Islam

00:40:04--> 00:40:09

If we don't do, if we don't take Islam completely

00:40:11--> 00:40:13

and do everything that we can,

00:40:15--> 00:40:18

then we really don't have faith in the law.

00:40:19--> 00:40:20

We know about a month

00:40:22--> 00:40:24

somebody asked you who is God, love,

00:40:26--> 00:40:26

convey it.

00:40:27--> 00:40:28

But it's not fake.

00:40:30--> 00:40:31

It's knowledge.

00:40:34--> 00:40:39

It only becomes faith when the person accepts Islam or

00:40:40--> 00:40:40

all of.

00:40:45--> 00:40:45

So,

00:40:47--> 00:40:48

this is what is in front of us,

00:40:50--> 00:40:52

either one or the other.

00:40:54--> 00:40:56

Either a life of pleasure

00:40:57--> 00:41:00

in this life externally,

00:41:02--> 00:41:04

with wretchedness internally

00:41:06--> 00:41:10

or in life, which involves difficulties externally, but

00:41:12--> 00:41:14

contentment internally

00:41:16--> 00:41:19

leading to either

00:41:21--> 00:41:21

help

00:41:24--> 00:41:26

with all of the torture steps to it,

00:41:29--> 00:41:33

or leading to paradise, with all of the pleasurable steps to it.

00:41:35--> 00:41:36

This is what is in front.

00:41:38--> 00:41:38

And we are

00:41:44--> 00:41:50

accepting Islam is the beginning of the step to paradise

00:41:54--> 00:41:58

shala I hope that we all will always give us the

00:42:00--> 00:42:01

great blessing

00:42:03--> 00:42:03

of

00:42:04--> 00:42:08

accepting Islam sincerely from our hearts

00:42:11--> 00:42:15

and give us the reward for living in accordance with

00:42:17--> 00:42:18

the reward of paradise.

00:42:24--> 00:42:25

And the mom

00:42:27--> 00:42:28

before closing the football,

00:42:31--> 00:42:36

spoke of the trials that Muslims are facing in Bosnia, Somalia,

00:42:38--> 00:42:40

Bosnia where they're being slaughtered.

00:42:42--> 00:42:44

Somalia where they're starving to death.

00:42:47--> 00:42:48

Brooklyn people

00:42:51--> 00:42:53

who are facing terrible calamities in this life,

00:42:57--> 00:42:58

who

00:42:59--> 00:43:02

biolog Destiny are facing this calamity.

00:43:05--> 00:43:11

While a lot of destiny has put us in a situation where we are living

00:43:12--> 00:43:15

comfortably, relatively comfortably,

00:43:16--> 00:43:20

we have to reflect we have to give thanks to Allah

00:43:23--> 00:43:24

for what he has given us,

00:43:26--> 00:43:35

not by merely saying Alhamdulillah and carrying on but by sharing what we have.

00:43:37--> 00:43:40

With those who are law have destined not to have

00:43:42--> 00:43:44

Muslim brothers and sisters

00:43:46--> 00:43:49

who are dying are in need of our help.

00:43:51--> 00:43:52

And none of us

00:43:53--> 00:43:54

should

00:43:56--> 00:44:02

let an opportunity go by to give something of what we have to them.

00:44:04--> 00:44:05

There are funds

00:44:08--> 00:44:11

collected while today was collected at the end of the

00:44:13--> 00:44:18

night know the end of the salon by the doors. Of course there's nobody there now. But

00:44:20--> 00:44:31

we know wherever we go in the city, we will see boxes collecting money for bosnia or for Somalia, or Muslims in some needy place.

00:44:33--> 00:44:35

We should always try to give something

00:44:37--> 00:44:38

no matter how small

00:44:40--> 00:44:53

whatever we can afford, we should try to always give something and in doing that. That's how we give thanks, practically that's how we give thanks to a lot practically

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

so that covers basically the

00:45:01--> 00:45:03

information conveyed and hooked up

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

there any point

00:45:08--> 00:45:14

that anybody would like to add from the football, those brothers amongst us who

00:45:16--> 00:45:18

understand Arabic, and

00:45:19--> 00:45:26

heard the football if there's something which I missed, which you would like to add further information for

00:45:28--> 00:45:28

our brothers

00:45:30--> 00:45:33

or sisters who don't are not able to understand the Arabic

00:45:39--> 00:45:45

If not any questions anybody would like to raise concerning the topic of the

00:45:55--> 00:45:56

people who say

00:45:58--> 00:45:59

thanks, people

00:46:03--> 00:46:04

and then punish them for

00:46:10--> 00:46:12

Yeah. Whether

00:46:13--> 00:46:15

was asking

00:46:16--> 00:46:19

how we may answer, brother

00:46:21--> 00:46:22

was asking

00:46:24--> 00:46:30

how we may answer those who say that a law has

00:46:31--> 00:46:32

cleared, created

00:46:33--> 00:46:35

the evil person evil

00:46:37--> 00:46:38

and then punished him

00:46:40--> 00:46:48

which indicates injustice, and unfairness. However, a lot did not create man evil

00:46:49--> 00:46:54

created men with the ability to choose good or evil,

00:46:56--> 00:47:00

and gave him the ability to implement his choice.

00:47:01--> 00:47:03

If a law so wished,

00:47:05--> 00:47:07

when the person chooses to do evil,

00:47:08--> 00:47:11

he is punished for his choice.

00:47:12--> 00:47:19

This is why I fell in love. I said the deeds are judged by their intention.

00:47:22--> 00:47:37

When a person chooses, he is punished for his choice what his intent was not necessarily the product of the action, because you may choose to do something good. And your action may turn out to be evil to somebody.

00:47:39--> 00:47:46

Or you may choose to do evil, or your acting may turn out to be good to other people. So

00:47:47--> 00:47:50

a lot of judges you ultimately according to the choice

00:47:51--> 00:47:57

that you made, and he is bound in his grace, will also multiply the one that you get

00:47:59--> 00:48:04

for that good choice by rewarding you also for the product of your choice, which is by user.

00:48:14--> 00:48:14

And the other question

00:48:17--> 00:48:18

that is involved in dialogue,

00:48:19--> 00:48:20

you know, our brothers,

00:48:22--> 00:48:44

also, you know, who have recently come into Islam? Do you have any questions in the chat? Don't feel that your question is, maybe, you know, too simple or whatever, there's anything on your mind. You know, you have anything that you have not been clear, somebody has explained, it's not clear to you, or you've been reading and you just just don't quite understand.

00:48:45--> 00:48:46

Please feel free now.

00:48:56--> 00:48:57

A question

00:49:02--> 00:49:05

was asked by a child if we will be old or young and tired.

00:49:07--> 00:49:24

Can you give an explanation of the age or something that would clarify this question? Well, you know, as the amendments in the woodburner department, I'm informed that people in paradise will be at the height of their youth. They will not be

00:49:26--> 00:49:34

in fact, this game or a circumstance where an old woman had come to the salon, and

00:49:35--> 00:49:37

I asked her whether, you know,

00:49:39--> 00:49:42

ask him sorry, whether she would identify that.

00:49:44--> 00:49:54

And he had told her No, no, no old women will be going into Friday. And he turned away with tears coming through our eyes, but you know, it was a joke he was making

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

rockets Illinois, you will enter you know, at the height of your youth. Not that because

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

You're old, you'll never go into finance but know a lot, those who are going to paradise will be at the height.

00:50:06--> 00:50:19

No matter what state they died in this life, you know, they will be at the highest and protection. I mean, if you are born with with only one foot or you're born without arms or whatever, it doesn't mean in fact that you're going to be there with our little, you will be perfect,

00:50:21--> 00:50:22

you will be entering perfection

00:50:24--> 00:50:29

paradise, and you will be perfectly suited for that part.

00:50:30--> 00:50:31

You will not grow old.

00:50:33--> 00:50:34

Women will not bear children.

00:50:36--> 00:50:37

There are no toilets.

00:50:38--> 00:50:43

because there'll be nothing to go in there. I mean, this is a whole different

00:50:44--> 00:50:45

existence altogether.

00:51:03--> 00:51:03

children,

00:51:11--> 00:51:11

children,

00:51:15--> 00:51:32

brother mentioned reading in Riyadh follow him that when problems are seldom when on the male, not when he was really saw when he was taken up into the heaven, and he came across Prophet

00:51:33--> 00:51:34

Abraham.

00:51:36--> 00:51:38

And he saw with him children.

00:51:40--> 00:51:44

So he was asking whether this means that there will be children in paradise.

00:51:48--> 00:51:53

I cannot say that they're, you know, will or they won't, you know,

00:51:54--> 00:52:00

proper, as I mentioned, in terms in the general terms that people would be at the height of the

00:52:01--> 00:52:06

weather, there would also be some children for one reason or another.

00:52:09--> 00:52:09

What

00:52:11--> 00:52:12

in marriage

00:52:18--> 00:52:19

is what the law shows.

00:52:21--> 00:52:22

And

00:52:23--> 00:52:35

it may not necessarily be a permanent situation, but just something of what may exist for a period of time. For example, we also know that the marchers

00:52:37--> 00:52:46

element form this is the markers, that they would go into paradise directly, and we'll be green birds flying around in part.

00:52:47--> 00:52:56

But this doesn't mean that they will remain a green bird flying around in paradise forever, this is a particular period of points.

00:53:02--> 00:53:03

Anyway, this is an area that

00:53:05--> 00:53:06

is very limited.

00:53:08--> 00:53:11

Ultimately, all we can say is a lot knows best.

00:53:42--> 00:53:43

This question

00:53:44--> 00:53:48

we know about those who are going to paradise

00:53:49--> 00:54:01

and have done good in this life. And, you know, receive in the state of the grave in the interim period before the resurrection, they receive a pleasurable existence

00:54:03--> 00:54:07

as was described, and those going to hell similarly receive

00:54:09--> 00:54:23

a torment existence. Now, question of our brother is one of those people who are believers. However, their faith was not enough to

00:54:24--> 00:54:29

make them do enough righteous deeds to guarantee them straight to

00:54:31--> 00:54:32

there are in fact going to help.

00:54:35--> 00:54:43

And the problems SLM has described such people that there were people people would go to hell. And if a person has

00:54:44--> 00:54:45

in his heart,

00:54:47--> 00:54:50

a mustard seeds worth up face to face.

00:54:52--> 00:54:56

Then he will eventually come out of Thailand.

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

Sorry, come out of hell.

00:55:00--> 00:55:00

And

00:55:03--> 00:55:06

that may be after a long period of time.

00:55:07--> 00:55:09

And in fact, the last two were taken out.

00:55:11--> 00:55:14

rasa Lam described them as being burned to a crisp.

00:55:15--> 00:55:20

And they will come into paradise, and they will be known as the Jiminy you

00:55:22--> 00:55:22

know,

00:55:24--> 00:55:28

but they will make it one of those people in the state of grace.

00:55:33--> 00:55:34

Well,

00:55:35--> 00:55:37

this was not explained by the province.

00:55:39--> 00:55:46

So, we cannot really say, you know, with clear authority, what would be their fate, except that

00:55:48--> 00:55:49

they are going to help.

00:55:52--> 00:55:56

And hell is a punishment that they are to receive

00:55:57--> 00:55:58

the standing for

00:56:00--> 00:56:02

logically, we can use

00:56:04--> 00:56:15

that process, which is taking them to Hell, I mean, because the interim period, when a person dies, like the process, ending for his resurrection into the NYC, we're going to need that, that process,

00:56:17--> 00:56:22

when it would seem to make sense that he would also be in the grave also tormented.

00:56:23--> 00:56:31

And especially when we consider some statements of problems, I sell them concerning some people who would be permitted in the grave,

00:56:32--> 00:56:36

because they didn't protect themselves from their urine.

00:56:39--> 00:56:39

Right?

00:56:41--> 00:56:50

Not because they were delivered, but because they did not take care of protecting themselves from the urine. And also, there were two cases right over to Greg was the second one

00:56:52--> 00:56:54

will lay back by the graves of some people in

00:56:56--> 00:57:01

person, you know, spreading rumors, you know, that they would be cemented in the grave further.

00:57:02--> 00:57:06

So, these people may have also been delivered,

00:57:07--> 00:57:15

you're being tormented unnecessarily for a big thing Biggie with their dump, but for some smaller evils which had piled up on them.

00:57:16--> 00:57:32

So, it does lend credence to the thought that perhaps that person also would receive the punishment of the grave gang is to help but in the end, it is the mercy of Allah, the grace of Allah, which takes him out of that situation and carries him to paradise.

00:57:55--> 00:58:01

I've got a question based on the the Quranic command,

00:58:02--> 00:58:04

not to be extravagant

00:58:07--> 00:58:10

what should be the lifestyle of the believer?

00:58:12--> 00:58:14

It should be one in which you're not extravagant.

00:58:16--> 00:58:21

But of course, extravagance may vary depending on

00:58:23--> 00:58:24

your own economic status.

00:58:27--> 00:58:35

See, what might be extravagant for you, you know, with a salary of 1003 hours a month

00:58:38--> 00:58:43

would not be considered extravagant for somebody who has a salary of 10,000 a month.

00:58:45--> 00:58:47

Okay. So extravagance

00:58:48--> 00:58:50

can be a relative thing.

00:58:51--> 00:58:57

But ultimately, what it is, is where you squander your wealth,

00:58:59--> 00:59:02

where you waste your money, your wealth,

00:59:04--> 00:59:10

on things, which are of no benefit to you in the next life.

00:59:12--> 00:59:14

This is really the bottom line of extravagance

00:59:15--> 00:59:16

where

00:59:19--> 00:59:21

there are people in need.

00:59:23--> 00:59:24

And you wait.

00:59:29--> 00:59:30

No.

00:59:31--> 00:59:41

After gathering here, for example, weddings, you will see people coming out with huge trays of rice and meat and dumping it into the garbage.

00:59:43--> 00:59:44

This is extravagant

00:59:45--> 00:59:48

when there are people starving in Somalia.

00:59:49--> 00:59:52

That's rice, which is thrown in the garbage here. This is a

00:59:59--> 00:59:59

kazoo.

01:00:00--> 01:00:01

People are starving because of licensing.

01:00:03--> 01:00:08

Because the rights which should have gone there is not going there, or people are starting

01:00:18--> 01:00:32

to extravagance might be for you to buy four pairs of shoes, and you can only wear 110 shirts, and you can only wear five.

01:00:36--> 01:00:41

Not all of these extravagance can take many, many different forms, but basically it is wasted.

01:00:43--> 01:00:51

And this is what Satan commands. What Satan encourages us what Satan makes seem, seemingly, you know, beautiful to us.

01:00:54--> 01:00:55

To me in style,

01:00:56--> 01:01:00

this is one of the ways in which Satan draws us into extravagance,

01:01:01--> 01:01:06

new style comes out this year you got to buy, you want to be you want to be you know,

01:01:09--> 01:01:10

looking cheap.

01:01:13--> 01:01:18

Because the clothes you wore last year, they didn't. They're not torn up, they're not damaged or anything, they're just out of

01:01:20--> 01:01:21

the way of the

01:01:30--> 01:01:32

money spent on holidays overseas.

01:01:34--> 01:01:35

On vacation.

01:01:37--> 01:01:40

Well, ultimately, as we spoke about a long time ago,

01:01:42--> 01:01:45

a Muslim doesn't have any vacation

01:01:47--> 01:01:48

and doesn't have any holidays.

01:01:55--> 01:01:59

He may travel a lot for us to travel the earth.

01:02:01--> 01:02:02

But

01:02:03--> 01:02:06

he still continues to do what a law

01:02:07--> 01:02:07

requires.

01:02:09--> 01:02:13

wherever he goes. He's conveying the message of Islam to the people around.

01:02:17--> 01:02:23

And he doesn't mean if he's spending money to go see the Taj Mahal and the Eiffel Tower it

01:02:25--> 01:02:28

costs to go traveling for these purposes, this is extravagant.

01:02:31--> 01:02:40

But wherever you travel, whatever he does, with his spare time, it should be things which are pleasing to Allah.

01:02:43--> 01:02:46

If what he does is pleasing to a mother and he's not except

01:02:53--> 01:02:57

but the idea of vacation and holiday. This is a Western

01:02:58--> 01:02:59

concept.

01:03:01--> 01:03:05

We're working is slavery, like slavery, you know,

01:03:06--> 01:03:12

and you must have a break, you have a break, because even the idea of the weekend

01:03:14--> 01:03:22

you know, the weekend after you work people like slaves, you have to give them a day to rest recuperate so they can work again for another week like sleep.

01:03:23--> 01:03:26

And this is that this is a Western capitalist.

01:03:27--> 01:03:29

You know, today's concept.

01:03:30--> 01:03:33

Actually in Islam, there is no weekend

01:03:34--> 01:03:41

when the call for prayer of Juma calm was supposed to stop work and go free. After that, go back out.

01:03:42--> 01:03:43

Get the boat is

01:03:46--> 01:03:46

not a holiday.

01:03:50--> 01:03:52

In the past there is all weekend.

01:03:55--> 01:03:58

Whether you're studying whether you're working continuously.

01:04:00--> 01:04:07

You don't work the people who work for you like slaves where you just give them stuff which is so heavy for them, you can hardly be the most up to date.

01:04:08--> 01:04:13

Give them work which is moderate, they can continue production continues.

01:04:17--> 01:04:18

This was the way of the past.

01:04:24--> 01:04:26

We hope to find our way back there again.

01:04:43--> 01:04:45

question of whether is it

01:04:46--> 01:04:53

unacceptable for a Muslim to strive to be wealthy and if it is acceptable,

01:04:54--> 01:04:58

then how does the first balance between extravagance

01:04:59--> 01:04:59

and

01:05:00--> 01:05:02

fulfilling his duty to alarm?

01:05:03--> 01:05:05

Well, Islam

01:05:06--> 01:05:12

teaches us that whatever is in this life has been given by a lot to us, for habits

01:05:14--> 01:05:16

for us to gather it and benefit from it.

01:05:18--> 01:05:20

If it involves us getting rich,

01:05:21--> 01:05:22

there is no harm.

01:05:25--> 01:05:26

However,

01:05:27--> 01:05:33

whatever we gather, we have to fulfill the rights

01:05:34--> 01:05:37

of others in it, for it to be allowed for

01:05:39--> 01:05:45

us to receive reward from it, we have to do our duty to Allah in it.

01:05:46--> 01:05:48

So, if we are rich,

01:05:50--> 01:05:53

then we have more to pay in zeca.

01:05:55--> 01:05:56

And we have more time

01:05:59--> 01:06:04

to see, what happens is that being rich is not something sinful.

01:06:07--> 01:06:16

Islam, the word discourage people from doing it encourage work, use your energy benefit from the things

01:06:17--> 01:06:19

of the past and the current problems.

01:06:21--> 01:06:32

But how did they live? The fact that they are which didn't mean that, you know, they then went out and bought Rolls Royces and you know, you know, private jets in Europe.

01:06:34--> 01:06:46

They use the wealth which Allah gave them for the benefit of the society, for themselves and for the society. So I personally the rich, for example, in any given country,

01:06:48--> 01:07:00

what he does is that he puts his money into the society, he invested into businesses, because there's so many people who would like to work like to start business, but they have no capital. So he provides the capital for them,

01:07:02--> 01:07:10

it will increase as well, when he gets richer, but the thing is that Allah blesses his wealth, because he is using it for the benefit of

01:07:11--> 01:07:13

benefits of himself. And

01:07:15--> 01:07:16

so

01:07:17--> 01:07:24

he may live a very comfortable life, he may have wishes, but what is well, is a source of increase in good deeds.

01:07:28--> 01:08:05

When it's the warranty, this is what becomes condemned when the person makes those riches. And he just keeps it off when the horse is depended only on himself, on himself and his family, nothing goes out to society doesn't benefit that society has to strive hard to put efforts to produce that, well. If he does not put it back into the society, then he is depriving them of the benefits of the efforts that they made. Keeping them in that sense, is keeping the rest of the society and that's why he becomes sinful. And that's why the wealth becomes then a curse.

01:08:06--> 01:08:10

And you will find that people who have this kind of attitude, they won't stay there.

01:08:12--> 01:08:14

Or they will find different ways of, you know,

01:08:15--> 01:08:21

cheating, and, you know, they think that she can do the caste system, but they're not cheating a lot. They only cheating themselves.

01:08:49--> 01:08:50

They live in abundance.

01:09:02--> 01:09:06

Well, I'd rather expanding on the original thoughts,

01:09:08--> 01:09:13

pointed out that you know, the world generally speaking is divided into the haves and the have not.

01:09:14--> 01:09:18

And would it be fair to say then, that the industrialized

01:09:20--> 01:09:23

first world g7 countries

01:09:24--> 01:09:30

which are living very comfortable material life,

01:09:31--> 01:09:41

on the raw materials that they are taking from the Third World The underdeveloped would it be fair to say that they are keeping them because they do not put their wealth back into this society? Yes.

01:09:44--> 01:09:46

What happens in these societies in America for example,

01:09:48--> 01:09:59

you have caverns underground. In America, they are where the water or whatever has eaten away and produced huge caverns underground, where there will store

01:10:00--> 01:10:05

Tons and tons of butter and dried milk, tons of it's sitting

01:10:07--> 01:10:09

every year just adding more and more and more

01:10:12--> 01:10:15

visits taken out of circulation to keep the price of butter and milk.

01:10:16--> 01:10:27

Every year, millions of little chickens when they're first born, millions are killed every year to keep the price of chickens that have grown high on the market.

01:10:29--> 01:10:32

So, there's so much produce, which is

01:10:33--> 01:10:48

being made there in that country. But so, much of this is destroyed, deliberately stored away in order to artificially keep prices high. Now, that produce

01:10:49--> 01:10:57

is possible, because of raw materials, which are taken from the underdeveloped countries.

01:10:59--> 01:11:12

So, in spite of whatever political factors may develop in these underdeveloped countries, and we find you know, famines, etc, coming about the real cause is not the political, the real cause is

01:11:13--> 01:11:17

the absence of circulation of wealth.

01:11:18--> 01:11:20

You know, places like India, for example,

01:11:21--> 01:11:34

or any other country of the Third World, what you generally find is that people are not poor, because there's a lack of resources. You know, I compare, for example, Philippines,

01:11:35--> 01:11:36

and Hong Kong,

01:11:39--> 01:11:42

Philippines has no end of resource,

01:11:43--> 01:11:53

people, physical resources, as well as, you know, natural resources. However, the level of the economy is extremely low.

01:11:55--> 01:12:03

Why, because of the means of distribution of the wealth in the society, Hong Kong, which has no resources,

01:12:05--> 01:12:11

there's no greenery there, every square inch of land has got buildings going up 30 4050 stories.

01:12:14--> 01:12:21

Here, the quality of life, there is 1000 times better than the quality of life in the Philippines.

01:12:22--> 01:12:31

And they have populations, somewhat similar to Philippines, they're importing all However, they have organized their

01:12:33--> 01:12:41

system in such a way that the society is able to benefit more from the wealth which is produced.

01:12:46--> 01:12:50

And this is the general situation, you have to perform America also.

01:12:51--> 01:12:58

Difficult again, though, in general, they will tell you that one American

01:12:59--> 01:12:59

eats

01:13:00--> 01:13:12

in one day, the equivalent of 25 people elsewhere, in Africa or Asia, one America was eating the day, the equivalent of what 25 people eat elsewhere.

01:13:13--> 01:13:19

They're consuming, you know, something like a quarter of the world's resources.

01:13:21--> 01:13:29

However, in spite of all that, you have some people for over a million people who live in the streets

01:13:30--> 01:13:31

have no hope.

01:13:33--> 01:13:33

Living

01:13:34--> 01:13:45

like the work that you see or you know, you see in every country, especially on the developed countries, visit people living in shanties and eating out of the garbage. You bought them in America.

01:13:48--> 01:13:51

Maybe better pickings in America, but still very few out of the garbage

01:13:52--> 01:13:54

living industry dying.

01:13:56--> 01:13:57

At the same time,

01:13:58--> 01:14:11

they mentioned that they spent $25 million to improve the pilot on the shuttle space shuttle that went up to over they made some improvements. $25 million

01:14:13--> 01:14:20

are people eating from the garbage? See, this again is distribution of wealth

01:14:21--> 01:14:22

and

01:14:27--> 01:14:28

society we have a responsibility.

01:14:30--> 01:14:48

We have a responsibility within our society to circulate that wealth, this is what the car is, it is forced circulation, it forces you You must put some of it back going to the poor. A law defines those people who the money should go back.

01:14:49--> 01:14:56

So as you can see, this is for circulation of the world. And then on top of that, there's the encouragement to product

01:14:58--> 01:14:59

for so many different

01:15:00--> 01:15:07

You know, things that people you do if you commit certain things, you know, they're the the atonement for the sins is sort of.

01:15:10--> 01:15:19

So we think that the encouragement in the society in generally, climate society is that of circulation of wealth,

01:15:20--> 01:15:32

encouragement of businesses, putting your wealth back into the society to benefit the society, not that you can't become rich, or the society shouldn't become rich, but that it should use that wealth for the benefit of man,

01:15:33--> 01:15:34

mankind.

01:15:51--> 01:16:02

Question, what can we then as Muslims do, to enlighten the Western countries, to their responsibility to distribute their wealth

01:16:04--> 01:16:45

equitably in the rest of the world? Well, I would say as Muslims, we first have to get our own Muslims to start distributing equitably, you know, after we have done that, as a practical example, I think we can show them to the west. But we have to start with ourselves because we are looking suffering all over the Western world. Because of this, on one hand, it's not the only factor, of course, is a big pattern has to do with faith. I mean, because of the loss of faith in the Muslim world, the fear of this, like fear of death, instead of fear of a loss, and submitting to Allah, that faith has been lost so much of the Western world, and it's led to many of the calamities, but

01:16:46--> 01:16:58

part of the problem is that we don't have that consciousness of responsibility that will be accountable to a law. And so therefore, we don't distribute our own wealth. So you'll find amongst the Muslims the super rich, and the super poor.

01:16:59--> 01:17:08

So until we can take care of ourselves, it would be very foolish for us to stand up and start to tell the western medicine you should be sharing your they can put up what about you.

01:17:13--> 01:17:21

So this is what this is our duty is to start with ourselves. You know, wherever we are as listeners, we have a duty to educate

01:17:23--> 01:17:28

Muslims to that responsibility, responsibility, responsibilities to our large responsibilities to mankind.

01:17:29--> 01:17:34

And where it is necessary, we have to make people comply with the law.

01:17:56--> 01:17:57

Welcome.

01:18:01--> 01:18:02

Public Works.

01:18:10--> 01:18:11

advocate award

01:18:57--> 01:18:57

with

01:19:05--> 01:19:06

another guy.

01:19:22--> 01:19:22

All right.

01:19:37--> 01:19:38

You could change your mind

01:19:50--> 01:19:51

now

01:20:00--> 01:20:00

Someone

01:20:14--> 01:20:15

by the word?

01:20:40--> 01:20:41

Well,

01:20:42--> 01:20:43

you always come with us

01:20:49--> 01:21:35

the first point that the brother raised, which should also be mentioned, for those who couldn't hear him, that look them, are encouraged in the spending those who have money in spending, not only in putting their money into other businesses and helping other Muslims in that way, they're also encouraged in doing public works, doing projects, different projects in any given society, wherein Muslims are people will benefit from or animals or whatever, you know, it could be making a sanctuary for certain animals, you know, or it could be, you know, digging a well, providing a well that people will benefit from, or that animals in an area will be able to benefit from because the

01:21:35--> 01:21:56

water is scarce or whatever, whatever Public Works, that he does that man or, or animal benefits from them. This is also a way by which he may gain further reward from the wealth that he has in sending. The other point that the brother was questioning.

01:21:57--> 01:22:00

Actually, it involves the question whether

01:22:01--> 01:22:03

a Muslim who murders and other was

01:22:05--> 01:22:05

intentional.

01:22:08--> 01:22:10

I've been promised help by Omar

01:22:11--> 01:22:15

whether or not in fact is nothing greater sin than to commit

01:22:19--> 01:22:23

which most people understand to be the greatest of sin?

01:22:26--> 01:22:26

No,

01:22:27--> 01:22:33

killing another Muslim is not the greatest sin, then ship ship is the greatest

01:22:35--> 01:22:38

because a lot this is that

01:22:41--> 01:22:42

forgive

01:22:43--> 01:22:45

Karen for forgive, whatever,

01:22:47--> 01:22:47

is not sure.

01:22:50--> 01:23:11

Whatever is beyond, he can forgive. So that even though he says that the punishment of a believer of a Muslim for killing another Muslim is hell, intention, that is the general punishment, but he can still forgive that Muslim.

01:23:13--> 01:23:31

He can still forgive because it's the general ruling he has given. He has already explained in the verse on ship that he can forgive anything, which is not sure. So this is clarification for that general punishment. The j is just like saying for example,

01:23:33--> 01:23:41

the general punishment for stealing is cutting your hand off. However, if some circumstances arise,

01:23:42--> 01:23:43

it's a time of

01:23:45--> 01:23:49

famine. If you still have that time, they will not cut your hand.

01:23:53--> 01:24:02

If your boss was not paying you your money, your salary, are you stolen from him? They would not cut your hand off.

01:24:03--> 01:24:12

So those general ruling is cutting off your hand. There are circumstances where exceptions can be taken out of law the general rule is

01:24:14--> 01:24:20

on the Muslim is hell a lot me forgive that Muslim and put an entire due to other factors.

01:24:28--> 01:24:30

There are many many examples.

01:24:31--> 01:24:35

Many many examples with sama bin Zayed

01:24:36--> 01:24:38

killed a man

01:24:40--> 01:24:41

declared his faith

01:24:43--> 01:24:47

who became a Muslim when he killed him. He killed him deliberately.

01:24:50--> 01:24:52

Because of an understanding that he had

01:24:55--> 01:24:57

did not say that he's going to help

01:24:59--> 01:24:59

him his loved ones

01:25:00--> 01:25:00

This

01:25:02--> 01:25:03

because you didn't know what is in that man's heart.

01:25:05--> 01:25:05

But

01:25:07--> 01:25:11

nobody has the idea that the summer is a

01:25:12--> 01:25:13

favorite

01:25:15--> 01:25:18

Companion of the buffaloes, I fell on the floor to help knowing

01:25:21--> 01:25:22

we had

01:25:24--> 01:25:31

people involved, you know, in struggles of the past where Muslims were ended, ended up fighting on the Muslim.

01:25:33--> 01:25:35

And in fact, there is a circumstance where

01:25:38--> 01:25:43

the problem was that I was asked about the armies which would be sent from the north,

01:25:44--> 01:25:48

to fight against the man. When the earth was swallowed among

01:25:51--> 01:26:01

these people who were there, who had been the fight against a Muslim leader, who wants to come, government's agenda was asked by the companions, what are these people, you know,

01:26:03--> 01:26:19

they would be raised on the Day of Judgment according to their intention. So the person has been given false information, for example, and this is like you will find, you know, happens where some Muslims end up killing other Muslims but they've been given false information. This Muslim is a so and so.

01:26:20--> 01:26:25

You know, he's evil thoughts on the person based on the false information kills, in other words,

01:26:27--> 01:26:39

so of course, a lie is going to judge that person based on the knowledge that the person has, it doesn't mean he has a guaranteed ticket to hell, that it depends on really what it was his intention was a person who is killing now.

01:26:40--> 01:26:43

Who is Muslim really only Muslim in nature?

01:26:45--> 01:26:46

He is killing

01:26:47--> 01:26:49

out of hatred of Islam.

01:27:24--> 01:27:25

Well,

01:27:26--> 01:27:29

brothers question that there are other religions

01:27:30--> 01:27:31

who speak of judgment

01:27:32--> 01:27:38

and responsibility, and encourage the power to do good and avoid evil.

01:27:40--> 01:27:47

Will these other religions people follow them these other religions, but also be rewarded, a lot of promise that

01:27:48--> 01:27:49

the reward of good is good.

01:27:51--> 01:27:56

Whatever good is done, there will be a good reward for a personality good intention.

01:27:58--> 01:27:58

However,

01:28:00--> 01:28:07

the greatest evil that one can do is to worship others besides the law, or a law with the law.

01:28:08--> 01:28:13

So that greatest evil will stop that person from going to buy that.

01:28:16--> 01:28:20

However, the goods that they did in this life with good intention

01:28:21--> 01:28:21

would

01:28:23--> 01:28:34

give them a state in hell, which is not as bad as those who didn't do what they did. Because just as in fact that there are levels in hell, they are also level

01:28:38--> 01:28:38

Yeah, going down

01:28:42--> 01:28:42

the

01:28:43--> 01:28:45

book of Abu Tanga

01:28:46--> 01:28:53

one who did so much good for the for the Muslims, but who died in a state of disbelief

01:28:54--> 01:28:56

we did not declare

01:28:57--> 01:29:02

that he would be unhealthy, but the hell was on me catches.

01:29:04--> 01:29:07

But even though it is enough to make his brain boil,

01:29:09--> 01:29:13

but obviously his situation is not like those who are fuel for the fire.

01:29:16--> 01:29:17

The hypocrites

01:29:18--> 01:29:26

will not proceed. So they're the person will receive their just because a lot is most wise.

01:29:28--> 01:29:33

But it will not be paradise because the key to Paradise is

01:29:36--> 01:29:39

and the righteous deeds that come from it.

01:30:43--> 01:30:43

Well

01:30:46--> 01:31:05

okay, I've got a question concerns are people in situations where the water supply is not a steady supply where it may cut off at the time of prayer and you person personally up to what use the bathroom is not able to wash and stop after using the bathroom. So,

01:31:06--> 01:31:23

such a person can that person going through I mean what is the greater sin involved here it is better for him to pray having not watched himself or to wait until the water comes back and miss the time of prayer, you know, what should the person do?

01:31:35--> 01:31:38

Okay. Now, we have a principle one

01:31:39--> 01:31:40

that

01:31:41--> 01:31:43

cleaning of oneself

01:31:45--> 01:31:48

does not necessarily have to be with water.

01:31:50--> 01:31:51

The first misunderstanding

01:31:53--> 01:31:57

that if you did not use watering cleaning yourself that you're not

01:32:00--> 01:32:10

because use of water is a part of the cleaning process. The best feeding processes with dry material
