You're listening to Ramadan reflections but with the same money this summer, Mufti Hussain will be teaching the Hadith intensive, students will study the different methods of compilation and preservation of ahaadeeth. The major role female scholars have played in Hadeeth preservation, the biography of famous Hadith narrators, as well as different collections and excerpts from famous heavy texts like Sahil Bahati. For more information visit Hadeeth intensive.com it's not a hospital Haman hamdulillah

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

hamdu lillahi wa kafa Salama da da da da da da da da

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

da da da so you of Florida million BIA. While early Hill Ischia was highly heated about

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala says in an ayah of the Quran,

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

in a levena call or a boon Allah.

00:00:52--> 00:01:39

Indeed those who have said that our Lord is Allah subhanho wa Taala saying that I believe in Allah subhanho wa tada isn't only believing in one Allah subhanahu wa Tada. But it means to accept the complete faith system of Islam. A person who has internalized and submits themselves truly accepts emaan faith for most of them, and then they remain steadfast on it. Remaining steadfast on your faith. What does that mean? What that means is that your actions add up to what you believe in for a person to say that I believe in the Quran being the revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala is one thing. And it's a very strong argument very difficult for people to argue and say that the foot on

00:01:39--> 00:02:17

was fabricated, orientalist and islamophobes have made that argument for a long period, and they've continuously consistently failed in establishing their point. Because the Quran is a preserved book, Allah subhanaw taala preserved his kind of his own speech. The one thing is believing in the Quran being the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala but it's the tama steadfastness on that actually means that you take the rulings of the Quran and you actually implement them into your life. So for example, the person reading the Quran that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not like those who are oppressors. So now it's the thermostat fastest on the Quran actually means that you find in your

00:02:17--> 00:02:55

life, all the scenarios and all the days and all the times that you oppress, and you remove them simply because the Quran is telling you to do so. Another group of scholars when they translate this word is the common which means to be steadfast and firm. They say Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying in the Medina call or a boon Allah, those who say they believe in Allah thumbless Docomo, then they became steadfast on holding on to the Quran and sooner meaning they held on to their religion strong, they align themselves with the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they implemented them. Now what's the what's the gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala for the people who do

00:02:55--> 00:03:38

these two things that nsra human mana aka, angels descend upon them. Some of us soon when they commented on this ayah they say angels descend upon them in the mode, when they are going through death. At the last moment of their life, angels come to them and the angels they say a lot the half who do not fear anything. Every person has a different fear. For a person who doesn't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala his fear is that Allah subhanahu wa tada will punish me for my disbelief. A person who believed that Allah subhanahu wa Tada, but was not consistent with actions, that person fears that are lost with honohan, Matata while holding me accountable for my disobedience. But the

00:03:38--> 00:04:20

question is, what kind of fear will a person have? Who already believes that a law and has remained steadfast on the actions that a Muslim should remain steadfast on? What kind of faith will he have? So the scholars then say, you will find people in five categories? The first category are the automatic movement in the general believer, when the angels will say to that person allowed to have food that do not fear? What does that mean? What they're actually saying to this person is not the kafue that be that either. Don't fear any eternal punishment because you are leaving this dunya this world in the state of Iman, and Allah subhanho wa Taala will never punish a believer eternally, at

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

this believer will be punished for Allah subhanho wa Taala eternally, but a believer, a person who says now you're not hitting the law, even if they are sent to the fire of hell and we asked a law to protect us all the 25th night of Ramadan, one of the possible nights of later till we raise our hands and we say Allahumma jiten. Amina Gnar, Allah protect us all from the fire of hell. The angels will say to these people, the median, the average believer that do not fear eternal punishment in the fire of hell because you are saved from that you have left this dunya in a state of faith. The second group of people unluckily soon These are people who are sincere

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

What kind of fear do they have? The angels will say to them, Do not fear that your actions will be rejected because you were sincere. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will not reject the actions of a person who was sincere for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The third group of people are DITA a boon, those who made sins who committed mistakes during their life, but then they repented to a law before their death. To them the angels will say, I love the hukou Do not fear but this time it'll be in the context of Do not fear the sins that you committed in your life because you asked Allah for forgiveness will love Google photo Rahim. And your Lord is forgiving, and your Lord is merciful. The

00:05:37--> 00:06:17

fourth group of people are these the people who abstain from worldly pleasures anyway. To them the angels will say a lot to half who do not fear meaning there's no need for you to fear any hisab Allah subhanahu wa tada will not hold you accountable on the Day of Judgment, you did not you did not show pleasure in the dunya to get to begin with and if you did not engage with the test that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave you what kind of accountability Will you have on the Day of Judgment. And the fifth group of people are the the scholars, the angels will say to them, I like the half who do not fear what that means for them is do not fear of any of the punishments of the Day of

00:06:17--> 00:06:58

Judgment, not just the fire of hell, but any difficulty of the Day of Judgment, from resurrection to standing in front of a law waiting for your hisab the thirst the heat that will bother people all of this you haven't saved from what am I a continues on a lot who do not fear what a lotta has no means. Do not grieve? La kafu is kind of over the future. what's to come. A person fears over what's coming, that has the newest husband to grief to grieve is over the past. Meaning Don't worry about what you missed out in the world. Allah subhanho wa Taala will take care of you and give you good reward. What you missed out what that means is a person might grieve and say, Man, I wish I had did

00:06:58--> 00:07:20

more good in my life. I wish I had done more. I wish I had done more. The person who dies by saying la isla hated a lot. And during their lifetime they had the comma, meaning they have steadfastness. Allah will reward them in a way that they will not fear anything that's to come ahead of them on the Day of Judgment, and they will have no grief over the past. And then the angels will say to this person will I be sure who will genital Latif

00:07:22--> 00:07:58

we've been sent to you right now at the time of your death to give you glad tidings of paradise. Allah subhana wa tada has made this promise to you. In one narration the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the companions they see about 11 hours over the long run narrates a Hadith, he says Cartagena model serializer Allahu alayhi wa sallam Fijian as a theologian, a minute unsought. We one day with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the funeral of in the hobby there was a companion from an animal Noah who passed away from the hay that you know cover we arrived at the graveyard and it was time to lower him into the grave for jellison to be said, Allahu alayhi wa

00:07:58--> 00:08:06

sallam, wa jealousness Allah who the prophets of Allah while he was sitting, sat down at the grave, and we the companion set around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:08:07--> 00:08:42

waka nada, leucaena plain, everyone was sitting so silently, so respectfully, there was this haibo this fear because they were sitting in the graveyard, this they were all intimidated by the grave, to the degree that they said that everyone was sitting so still that it was as if there were birds on the head. You know, when a bird is sitting somewhere, if you move that thing a little bit what's going to happen? it'll fly off. So he's trying to indicate towards how still the companions were with respect while sitting at that grave around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Wolfie yet he rudan young to be held out of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a stick in his hand

00:08:42--> 00:09:03

that he was kind of just poking into the ground with and then the Prophet said a lot of water he was said I'm turning to the companions. And he said is that it will be law him and I will cover seek protection from Allah in this punishment of the grave. pada Murthy in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this twice or three times is that it will be like Him and others will cover

00:09:05--> 00:09:19

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

that when a person a believer is transitioning from this world, a group of angels come and they come with beautiful garments with beautiful faces lightened up just like the sun. They have beautiful fragrance with them and they bring a shroud from Gemini as if they're ready to receive this person's soul. And they come to this person and they tell this person that he had to have enough salt in all contents surface. Oh content soul all serving of a law that has been content with Allah subhanahu wa tada We are here to receive you and take you to the mercy of Allah and the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa tada and they sit nearby that person and they praise the person and praise the person

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

and when

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

This person sees the beauty and smells the beautiful fragrance. And here's these glad tidings of Jenna, his soul becomes very happy. And when they take the soul out of that person, they extract the soul from that person in such a peaceful manner as if a drop falls from a cup, or from a bowl. You know, when you pour water, how easily does it fall from the jug into the cup very easily? Right? Like he's like you pull out a strand of hair from a doe, when he's strapped when you pull that strand out, does it disturb the dough in any way at all? No at all. Nothing very simple, very easy. That's how this person's soul is extracted from the body. And then they then take the soul and they

00:10:36--> 00:11:11

wrap it inside a beautiful garden. This is all in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and that garment has a beautiful fragrance and they take it into the heavens and every group of angels they walk past the angels, they say what is this beautiful fragrance that we smell from this bag and the angels they say this is the soul of Fernando Bluefin and so and so the son of so and so and they will describe that person with the most beautiful characteristics with the Most Beautiful Names and the angels will say a ceremony Peace be with you, honey unlock marhaba make that glad tidings be for you. Welcome you are also we heard so much about you now you passed by us until the soul reaches the

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

seventh heaven the highest skies and the soul will then be presented in front of Allah subhanho wa tada and Allah subhana wa tada will say, Take his book of deeds and put them in the pile of those who did good and send this servant back to the world. honor him on the way down, honor him into the grave and that soul will then be returned back into the soil. Allah subhanho wa Taala will command the angels minnehaha kanakam wafaa needs to come from the soul we created you to the soul you're being returned. Now send this servant back to the soil and when that person's body is returned back to the soil and they finished off burying his body when this person is not in the grave alone. As

00:11:45--> 00:11:51

the people begin to walk away he will hear their footsteps leaving him the Hadid says what he will.

00:11:52--> 00:12:37

That lady that man will hear the footsteps walking away and he will feel loneliness and two angels will come and they will ask mom Rob book, who is your Who is your Lord and this person? He will say what he did his entire life in Ludhiana kalu Rob bonala from Mr. Calm he will say Rob Viola. I never doubted a loving My Lord and my statements or my action or my heart while I was in the road. You think I'm going to stutter today, my Lord is Allah. They will say my Dino, what is your religion? He will say Dini and Islam, my religion is Islam. The angels will then ask what do you say about this person and there will be an image in front of him. You know, some scholars who say it will be an

00:12:37--> 00:13:07

image of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Or they will say, What do you say about this person? And there'll be a direction towards the city of the province of Alberta. Some of the scholars have interpreted this statement in different ways. But the Hadith says the angels will say makuuchi have Rajat What do you say regarding this man? And that person will say, this is the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they say, well, not Elmo can How do you know he is the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this person will say, I read his words. And I read the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he is the Messenger of Allah who delivered it to us. And

00:13:07--> 00:13:40

the angels will then be the angels will then say to this person, that glad tidings to you, all of the sacrifices you made in the world today will be paid off for you, and his grave will open up and it will turn into a garden from the gardens of Paradise, his grave will be full with fragrance. And as this person lies in his grave and peace, there will be a window opened up in front of him, and that window will give him sight into his final abode into gender inshallah philosophies. And as he lies there, a beautiful man will come with a beautiful garment, and He will say to that person, don't worry, you're not alone here. I am here to give you a company until the day of judgment, and

00:13:40--> 00:13:49

he will say, Who are you? And that person will say, I am the good deeds that you did while you were in the dunya. You didn't leave me in the dunya I won't leave you in the grave now.

00:13:50--> 00:13:52

What have we prepared?

00:13:53--> 00:14:29

Have we ever thought about this journey, a journey that has been told to us by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, Nabi sallallahu, it was said and then continuing on, he said, Well, I'm a kafir. As for the disbeliever when his time of death comes, the angels are sent down to him, and they are addressed in the most horrific garments with the stench that is emitting that tells him that these angels have just come from the fire of how because they are responsible of managing the affairs within the fire of how and when this person sees him. The angels will say, oh wretched soul, you disobeyed Allah subhanho wa Tada. Now the punishment of Allah awaits you. And when the time

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

comes to take his soul out of his body. He will be terrified by the smell, by the sight by their anger by the thunder in their voice, and when the soul is taken out, they will yank the soul out bit by bit, kind of like a fabric cloth. A silk cloth is pulled out of a pile of bricks, pile of thorns, you know how you pull it out, it rips and tears, rips and tears, they will pull the soul until the neck and then release it again until the shoulders release it again. And then all the way down. Start from the bottom upwards till the ankles, release it. Then extract the soul until the knees and then release it

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

And then until the width waist and then release it. And then we'll continue to release the causing this person more and more pain. And then finally they will wrap his soul and take it to the heavens. And the angels will say that the Lord has no desire and seeing the servant, send them back to the hole that he came from minnehaha cannot come, he has to come from the soil we created you and to the soil will be you will be returned. And when he's lowered down into the grave, the angels will come. And these angels will have a thunder in their voice. And they will say to this person, money book, who is your Lord? And he will have no answer to that question. They will say what is your religion?

00:15:34--> 00:16:09

He will have no answer to that question. They will ask him who is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to you, he will have no answer for that question. And then the angels will tell him that all of that denial of Allah subhanho wa Taala, all of that ungratefulness to Allah, all of those sins. Today the time has come where your opportunity to do good deeds is gone, and the hisab and the punishment of Allah starts now. The hisab and the punishment of Allah starts now. And the grave will close in on this person. And the Prophet said Allahu Allah, he was sending us his fingers, and he crossed them into one another for shabaka sabia. He took his fingers and cross them into one another

00:16:09--> 00:16:24

and said, this is how his ribs will cross out of that punishment, and he will continue to be tortured until the day of gentlemen, this Hadeeth right here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us it reminds us of the continuation of our journey into this dunya Let me ask you one thing.

00:16:26--> 00:16:31

The Quran talks about embryology, the formation of the human being in the mother's womb, yes or no?

00:16:33--> 00:17:13

When it was first revealed, before people had science to verify it, some people were skeptical, yes or no? Yes or no. But what did Muslims always say? Science or not? What did we say? La ilaha illa Allah subhanaw taala our Lord spoke the truth. Our Lord spoke the truth that's what we said. And we continue to say it whether we had any reason or not, whether we have the science behind it, the knowledge behind it or not, which later on as we know, it's there's no part of it that's faulty or lie at all. Allah subhana wa tada spoke the truth woman esta homina la Athena. But until we didn't have the science, we continue to believe in it. So if Allah subhanahu wa tada spoke the truth about

00:17:13--> 00:17:20

our entry into the world before any human being knows, before any human being knew. Do you think Allah subhanho wa Taala is lying about your exit from the dunya

00:17:21--> 00:18:00

there are some of us that may say but there's no proof to any of this. The statement was made before by the way those who rejected but when time came, but a bunch of a sudden was sent me a photo john nama saga in nanopi noon, on the day of judgment, those who deny when they see the hereafter when they see Allah subhanho wa Taala has Jessa and his compensation and allows his up his accountability they will say Allah now we believe give us a chance to go back to the world Yella we believe now. Right now if you go to someone and say all this happens in the grave, the average person who isn't a believer and has no faith and along that'll suit what will they say this is all bogus, you open up

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

the grave nothing's happening there. The reason is because the reason is because the punishment is not necessarily attached to the body. The body is just a vehicle for the linear the punishment is attached to the soul. And the soul of the human being can't be seen by any by any tool any scientist can create as it enters the body or as it

00:18:20--> 00:18:36

as it exits the body. Because Allah subhana wa tada says, the soul cannot be trapped, hold a roof from an empty room be because a soul is a secret of Allah subhanho wa Taala what its dimensions are habits created, what fields these are all things connected to the soul of the human being.

00:18:37--> 00:19:20

To mineral means me in Laconia, you know your knowledge regarding the route the soul that Allah subhanaw taala has given you is very limited. So I close off this heart and I this reminder, first and foremost, to encourage every one of us to believe in our ending, just as we believe in our beginning, a day will come where we will, we will live past the ending of this dunya and when we stand on the Day of Judgment, we will look backwards and we will say wow, all of it was true. But at that point accepting it will be meaningless. The time to accept it is now and if we accepted with our heart that this is what's going to happen, then it's only foolishness that will turn us away

00:19:20--> 00:19:59

from preparing for that day. These are the nights of Ramadan. This is a possible night of lateness and other there is no opportunity greater for us than to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala today now this night, Yala, honor us at the time of death. You know, Allah preserve us, you know, a lot send us angels will bring good black tidings to us who are in pleasure to us who will give us comfort who will be our companions, who you are happy with in our head on. I mean, don't love it. Don't let us leave his dunya until you are happy with us. One puravida unknown until you are pleased with us in our aalameen did not make us from the second group of people who have no answer for their

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

further question.

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

In the grave, yellow Don't make us from the group of people who the angels are angry to me. Yeah, don't make us from the people who are terrified at the time of death and have no support to give them guidance as they transition from this world into the next.
