Death

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

is one of the most natural things that

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

human beings have been through

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

since the beginning of time.

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

So every single human being

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

is guaranteed death.

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

And Allah

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

tells

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

us

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

Every single

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

person shall taste death.

00:00:49--> 00:00:53

And indeed you will be given your recompense.

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

So the one who is averted

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

and diverted away from the fire

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

and he has entered into Jannah and such

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

a person has won

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

and this Dunya is nothing but

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

a deception.

00:01:10--> 00:01:10

So

00:01:10--> 00:01:13

every single one of us will one day

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

breathe our last.

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

And this is something that when we think

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

of, many of us are afraid.

00:01:21--> 00:01:24

Many of us fear, many of us think

00:01:24--> 00:01:25

that

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

why do I have to leave this dunya?

00:01:28--> 00:01:31

But in reality a person who is preparing

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

for the akhira

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

he will not be

00:01:35--> 00:01:38

as worried as the one who has built

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

this world only.

00:01:40--> 00:01:41

And this is why

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

back in the past, one of these scholars

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

was asked,

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

why is it that we despise

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

death?

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

So he says,

00:01:56--> 00:01:59

It is because you have built your dunya

00:01:59--> 00:02:01

and you have left

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

and abandoned your akhira.

00:02:09--> 00:02:12

So you despise to move from that which

00:02:12--> 00:02:15

is built up to that which you have

00:02:15--> 00:02:16

left abandoned.

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

Imagine

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

you have a

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

hotel room that you are living in

00:02:22--> 00:02:25

and that hotel room obviously you know you

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

are there for 5, 10, 15 nights possibly

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

maximum

00:02:29--> 00:02:30

and then you have to go back home.

00:02:31--> 00:02:33

But when when you are given and you

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

check into that room

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

what you begin to do is you say

00:02:36--> 00:02:38

I don't like the way this bathroom is.

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

Right? So let me

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

develop it. Let me renovate it. Take out

00:02:42--> 00:02:44

all the tiles. Put what is. Put that

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

which I like, put a bedding that I

00:02:46--> 00:02:48

enjoy, change the carpet,

00:02:48--> 00:02:49

change the ceiling,

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

change the curtains. Why? Because I don't like

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

this hotel room.

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

But you know you are leaving that hotel

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

room

00:02:57--> 00:02:59

and that is the dunya for us my

00:02:59--> 00:03:01

dear brothers and sisters in Islam. We build

00:03:01--> 00:03:02

it

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

and we

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

make it such that it will be luxurious

00:03:06--> 00:03:09

for our stay. Not realizing one day you

00:03:09--> 00:03:10

have to check out.

00:03:10--> 00:03:12

One day you have to leave

00:03:12--> 00:03:15

and that which is beyond that door is

00:03:15--> 00:03:18

what is important. The akhira is important.

00:03:19--> 00:03:22

So Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam was not

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

only tested in the same manner. He did

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

not only taste

00:03:26--> 00:03:29

death himself salallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

and pass on to the akhirah but

00:03:32--> 00:03:35

he was tested with death all around him

00:03:35--> 00:03:36

as well.

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

He was born without a father.

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

His father passed away before he died.

00:03:43--> 00:03:46

His mother passed away when he was only

00:03:46--> 00:03:47

6 years old

00:03:48--> 00:03:48

and

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

his grandfather passed away when he was 8

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

years old. So you can see in quick

00:03:54--> 00:03:57

succession people are dying around him. And in

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

fact he was only 6 years old when

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

his mother took him on a journey with

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

Umayman.

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

And all the way back

00:04:05--> 00:04:06

his mother passed away

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

and

00:04:08--> 00:04:11

came back to Makkah with Muhammad salallahu alaihi

00:04:11--> 00:04:14

wasallam. Wa salallam alone. Imagine, 6 year old

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

child

00:04:15--> 00:04:16

left motherless.

00:04:17--> 00:04:20

Imagine the emotions going through the hearts of

00:04:20--> 00:04:21

this young child

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

but it was none other than Muhammad Sallallahu

00:04:24--> 00:04:27

Alaihi Wasallam. So a person may wonder

00:04:27--> 00:04:28

that why

00:04:30--> 00:04:32

did Allah test him in this manner?

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

That is because my dear brothers and sisters

00:04:34--> 00:04:35

in Islam test

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

trial, tribulation,

00:04:37--> 00:04:41

hardship, difficulty, even death around you is not

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

a bad thing.

00:04:42--> 00:04:43

But it is Allah

00:04:45--> 00:04:48

strengthening you as a human being making you

00:04:48--> 00:04:48

stronger

00:04:49--> 00:04:52

and Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala preparing you for

00:04:52--> 00:04:55

goodness in the akhirah Allah raising your rank.

00:04:55--> 00:04:58

So Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam's mother passes

00:04:58--> 00:05:01

away and then his grandfather passes away and

00:05:01--> 00:05:04

then Abu Talib, his uncle whom he loved

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

so dearly passes away. And Khadija radiAllahu Anha

00:05:07--> 00:05:10

passes away. And not only that

00:05:10--> 00:05:13

but even his children 1 by 1

00:05:13--> 00:05:14

they pass away.

00:05:18--> 00:05:19

She is actually

00:05:20--> 00:05:22

she makes the Hijra and

00:05:22--> 00:05:24

she becomes ill.

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

And when it was the battle of Badr,

00:05:28--> 00:05:31

Usman aladiallahu anhu was married to Ruqaiyah aladiallahu

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

anha.

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

So when it was the battle of Badr,

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wasallam

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

he went out with his companions. And before

00:05:40--> 00:05:42

going out he told Usman,

00:05:42--> 00:05:45

for you your battle is at home. You

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

stay and you look after your wife Ruqayyah.

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

Radi Abu Anha. She is sick you will

00:05:51--> 00:05:52

look after her.

00:05:52--> 00:05:56

So he stayed at home and Rasulullah salallahu

00:05:56--> 00:05:58

alaihi wa sallam went out and he was

00:05:58--> 00:05:59

victorious

00:05:59--> 00:06:00

at battle.

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

And in the meantime Ruqayyah

00:06:02--> 00:06:03

radiAllahu

00:06:03--> 00:06:05

anha gets worse

00:06:05--> 00:06:08

and she passes on And Rasulullah

00:06:09--> 00:06:12

Rasulullah Sarrabbath alaihi wa sallam doesn't even know

00:06:12--> 00:06:15

that his daughter has passed on. But he

00:06:15--> 00:06:16

sends 2 people

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

to give

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

Madinah glad tidings that they have won the

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

battle. Usama tudmuzayd and Abdullah Nurawala.

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

He sent these 2 and said go and

00:06:26--> 00:06:28

give them glad tidings we have won the

00:06:28--> 00:06:28

battle.

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

Imagine

00:06:29--> 00:06:32

he's sending them to give glad tidings not

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

realizing

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

that his daughter has passed away as well.

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

So they come and they give God tidings

00:06:38--> 00:06:39

to the people of Madinah

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

but there are some who are grieving the

00:06:42--> 00:06:45

passing of the daughter of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi

00:06:45--> 00:06:46

Wasallam.

00:06:46--> 00:06:49

In fact, the narration goes as far as

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

to say that

00:06:51--> 00:06:51

Zayd

00:06:52--> 00:06:55

arrived, Usamatul Nuzayd. He arrived in Madinah

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

and they were burying

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

Ruqayah,

00:06:59--> 00:07:01

the daughter of Rasulullah Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:07:01--> 00:07:05

so when the messenger Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

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

gets back

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

he is

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

shocked by the news

00:07:10--> 00:07:11

and what does he do?

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

He goes to

00:07:15--> 00:07:16

the graveyard

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

and Al Baqir what is known as Al

00:07:19--> 00:07:21

Baqir today and he raises his hands and

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

he makes dua

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

for

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

Ruqayyah,

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

for Maghfirah and for Rahma, for Ruqayyah radiAllahu

00:07:28--> 00:07:31

anha. This is his own daughter passing away

00:07:31--> 00:07:32

Sallallahu

00:07:32--> 00:07:33

alaihi wa sallam.

00:07:33--> 00:07:36

Imagine what was going through his heart, the

00:07:36--> 00:07:39

sadness that he felt. And they say that

00:07:39--> 00:07:40

when Qulthumb

00:07:41--> 00:07:44

radiAllahu anha passed away, there is mention of

00:07:44--> 00:07:47

tears that fell from the blessed face of

00:07:47--> 00:07:50

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. Allahu Akbar.

00:07:51--> 00:07:52

In fact,

00:07:52--> 00:07:53

all of his children died

00:07:54--> 00:07:56

except for Fatima Radiallahu

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

Anha and

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

the only son that he had at the

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

time

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

1 year before he passed away Ibrahim

00:08:04--> 00:08:05

he actually

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

was

00:08:07--> 00:08:09

breathing his lust as well.

00:08:09--> 00:08:12

And Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam is given

00:08:12--> 00:08:14

the news. Your son is breathing his lust.

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

So he goes to the date palms of

00:08:17--> 00:08:20

Madinah in a home where he was and

00:08:20--> 00:08:21

he lifts up his son

00:08:22--> 00:08:25

and places him into his lap. And one

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

narration says he went and he

00:08:27--> 00:08:28

took

00:08:29--> 00:08:31

a smell, you know, he smelled the sun.

00:08:31--> 00:08:34

You know how when you love someone, you

00:08:34--> 00:08:35

breathe the ascent in.

00:08:36--> 00:08:37

This is what he did and then he

00:08:37--> 00:08:39

put the sun into his lap

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

and his eyes teared.

00:08:44--> 00:08:46

If you just think of that at that

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

moment

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

he

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

his only son

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

at the time

00:08:52--> 00:08:55

and his breathing is lost in his hands.

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

And his eyes tear so the companion

00:08:58--> 00:09:01

radiAllahu anhu with him says that,

00:09:03--> 00:09:06

did you not stop us from crying? Did

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

you not stop us from showing this emotion?

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

So he says,

00:09:11--> 00:09:13

I did not stop you and prohibit you

00:09:13--> 00:09:14

from this.

00:09:16--> 00:09:19

This is a yahma jaa Allahu

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

fee rebadeer ruhamah.

00:09:21--> 00:09:24

Allah has placed this in the hearts of

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

those who are merciful.

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

And then he says,

00:09:32--> 00:09:35

But I stopped you from 2 different

00:09:35--> 00:09:38

evil and bad types of voices.

00:09:38--> 00:09:41

1, when you scream out, you know, when

00:09:41--> 00:09:43

people go and they party and they are

00:09:43--> 00:09:45

happy and they scream out and they shout

00:09:45--> 00:09:48

and wail and do all sorts of things.

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

That is what Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:09:51--> 00:09:54

prevented from. And the second voice he says,

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

this foolish

00:09:55--> 00:09:57

second voice that you are never meant to

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

do is to tear your clothes and wail

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

at the top of your voice and to

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

scratch your face. That I have stopped you

00:10:06--> 00:10:09

from doing. That I have prohibited for you

00:10:09--> 00:10:11

from doing. And then he says,

00:10:13--> 00:10:15

indeed the eye will tear

00:10:17--> 00:10:20

and indeed the heart will become sad

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

But we will only say that which is

00:10:25--> 00:10:26

pleasing to Allah

00:10:27--> 00:10:30

You see it is normal and human for

00:10:30--> 00:10:32

you to cry when you lose loved ones.

00:10:32--> 00:10:35

It is normal and human for you to

00:10:35--> 00:10:38

feel sad when you lose a loved one.

00:10:38--> 00:10:41

You should process that pain. And part of

00:10:41--> 00:10:44

processing the pain is to actually cry.

00:10:45--> 00:10:48

Part of processing the pain is to cry.

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

You know, there are some people who are

00:10:50--> 00:10:52

so shocked that they cannot cry initially,

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

And it concerns

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

those around them. Why is this person not

00:10:56--> 00:10:59

crying? This is a time where they should

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

be crying, but they haven't processed it. They

00:11:02--> 00:11:05

haven't processed the fact that this person is

00:11:05--> 00:11:06

gone and I will never see this person

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

in this dunya again. And when they process

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

it, it is as though

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

a ton of bricks has hit them and

00:11:13--> 00:11:16

you see them break down in tears. That

00:11:16--> 00:11:17

is Rahmah from Allah.

00:11:19--> 00:11:22

A system that he created within us for

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

us to become

00:11:23--> 00:11:26

stable once again. It is important for you

00:11:26--> 00:11:29

to grieve and this is why when we

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

see videos

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

of places where a person is saying don't

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

cry, don't cry,

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

you are not meant to cry. No. That

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

is not Islam.

00:11:39--> 00:11:41

Your child has died. You are meant to

00:11:41--> 00:11:44

cry. It is only human to cry. If

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

you don't cry, then there's something wrong with

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

you.

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

Yes. Perhaps it is at a time where

00:11:50--> 00:11:52

you want to show a bit of strength

00:11:52--> 00:11:54

to the enemy, etcetera. Understandable.

00:11:54--> 00:11:57

Don't cry there. But don't stop people from

00:11:57--> 00:12:00

crying behind closed doors with themselves,

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

with their families. It is okay. It is

00:12:03--> 00:12:06

normal for you to grieve. Even Rasoolullah salallahu

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

alayhi wa sallam grieved. But what did he

00:12:08--> 00:12:09

say?

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

And indeed the heart also becomes sad.

00:12:18--> 00:12:20

But we will not say anything except for

00:12:20--> 00:12:22

that which pleases Allah. And

00:12:23--> 00:12:25

this is where we make a mistake. This

00:12:25--> 00:12:28

is where we now sometimes question

00:12:29--> 00:12:29

why Allah

00:12:31--> 00:12:34

did that to us. And the question why

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

is to never be post to Allah Subhanahu

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

Wa Ta'ala.

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

Because Allah

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

is the decider.

00:12:40--> 00:12:43

Allah is the creator. Allah

00:12:43--> 00:12:46

is in control. And we as believers have

00:12:46--> 00:12:48

admitted and submitted that

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

Allah is in control. We surrender, Allah. We

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

are there admitting that we are the slaves

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

and you are the controller. You are the

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

master and we are the servants and we

00:12:59--> 00:13:01

come to you horribly You Allah begging for

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

your forgiveness. So he says,

00:13:06--> 00:13:08

and we will not say anything except for

00:13:08--> 00:13:10

that which pleases Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. You

00:13:10--> 00:13:11

see

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

not long afterwards

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

Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam carries on with

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

his life

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

and he continues

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

and Fatimatkah happens.

00:13:21--> 00:13:25

So Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam never got stuck

00:13:25--> 00:13:28

in that moment and that is what many

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

of us

00:13:30--> 00:13:33

tend to do when something bad happens in

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

our lives.

00:13:34--> 00:13:38

Something severe perhaps sometimes a motor vehicle accident

00:13:38--> 00:13:41

where 3 or 4 of our family members

00:13:41--> 00:13:44

have died. And it is so difficult, so

00:13:44--> 00:13:46

heart wrenching you begin to wonder what is

00:13:46--> 00:13:48

the purpose of of life anymore? Why should

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

I live here anymore?

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

But I believe in Allah says,

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

Inna Lillah wa Inna Ila Yajiyun

00:13:56--> 00:13:58

indeed we belong to Allah and to him

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

we shall return.

00:14:00--> 00:14:02

And he carries on with his life. What

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

does that statement mean?

00:14:04--> 00:14:07

We belong to Allah. You you Allah. We

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

give our lives to you. We admit that

00:14:10--> 00:14:12

our lives belong to you. We accept your

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

decree, oh Allah. And we know we are

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

going back to you as well. We know

00:14:16--> 00:14:18

we are returning to you as well. So

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

in the same manner that these people have

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

got, we will go to. And we admit

00:14:22--> 00:14:25

and accept and carry on with our lives.

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

Sometimes

00:14:26--> 00:14:27

you find

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

and especially

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

the females when a woman's

00:14:31--> 00:14:34

husband passes away and he was

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

very very good to her.

00:14:37--> 00:14:39

What does she say? She says, I will

00:14:39--> 00:14:40

never marry again.

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

I will never marry again because I will

00:14:43--> 00:14:45

never find anyone like him.

00:14:46--> 00:14:49

But this happened to none other than the

00:14:49--> 00:14:52

wife of Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam. Her

00:14:52--> 00:14:52

husband

00:14:53--> 00:14:54

was very good

00:14:54--> 00:14:57

to her so she says I will never

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

find like Abu Salama. This was salama radiAllahu

00:15:01--> 00:15:04

anha and Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam told

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

her make a dua Allahumma

00:15:06--> 00:15:07

ajurnifimusibati.

00:15:08--> 00:15:11

Oh, Allah reward me in this calamity of

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

mine.

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

And give me better than this calamity that

00:15:17--> 00:15:19

I have been through. Give me better than

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

Abu Salaba. Just make that dua.

00:15:22--> 00:15:25

Why? Because it is not beyond Allahuqun Izzati

00:15:25--> 00:15:28

waljalal to give you better. In your limited

00:15:28--> 00:15:29

eyesight and capacity

00:15:30--> 00:15:31

you may think that it is not possible.

00:15:32--> 00:15:34

But for Allah nothing is impossible.

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

So make this dua

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

and do you know whom she married after

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

that? She married none other than Rasoolullah Sallallahu

00:15:42--> 00:15:44

Alaihi Wasallam and he was better than Abu

00:15:44--> 00:15:45

salam.

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

And she says she relates this hadith

00:15:49--> 00:15:52

and she relates this story to us and

00:15:52--> 00:15:54

tells us, so Allah gave me better bint

00:15:54--> 00:15:58

Abu salam. So never put anything beyond Allah

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

subhanahu wa ta'ala. There is life

00:16:01--> 00:16:04

beyond your calamity. There is life beyond your

00:16:04--> 00:16:07

moseebah. There is life beyond the death of

00:16:07--> 00:16:09

a loved one as well. You can move

00:16:09--> 00:16:12

on and tell yourself you will move on.

00:16:12--> 00:16:14

Give yourself enough time to grieve. And then

00:16:14--> 00:16:17

you must move on because Allah chose life

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

for you and he chose death death for

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

them. So they have gone but they themselves,

00:16:21--> 00:16:23

if they were living today and you were

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

to ask them, how would you want me

00:16:25--> 00:16:27

to live my life? They would say, I

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

want you to carry on. I want you

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

to be happy. I want you to live

00:16:31--> 00:16:32

your life.

00:16:32--> 00:16:35

They themselves would be happy for you to

00:16:35--> 00:16:37

live. So why are you now saying my

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

life is over? So we need to understand

00:16:39--> 00:16:43

that beyond calamity even the most heinous of

00:16:43--> 00:16:45

times, there is actually life. And we can

00:16:45--> 00:16:47

carry on and we can live. And at

00:16:47--> 00:16:50

times when you find it difficult then you

00:16:50--> 00:16:52

may reach out to those who can help

00:16:52--> 00:16:55

you either medically or psychiatrically.

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

Or it may be such that you need

00:16:58--> 00:17:00

to just sit and speak to someone about

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

it. It is okay. These are processing mechanisms.

00:17:03--> 00:17:05

It is important for you to do them.

00:17:05--> 00:17:08

Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam as we see

00:17:08--> 00:17:09

he himself grieved,

00:17:09--> 00:17:12

he himself cried and he moved on. One

00:17:12--> 00:17:13

last thing

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

before we end of today Insha'Allah,

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

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam was not a father

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

of any men

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

and there is a lot of wisdom behind

00:17:24--> 00:17:27

that. Allahuqun Izzati wal Jalaal says,

00:17:39--> 00:17:42

And Muhammad was not a

00:17:42--> 00:17:45

father for any of your men but he

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

was the messenger

00:17:46--> 00:17:49

of Allah and the seal of prophethood.

00:17:50--> 00:17:52

He was the last of prophets. There is

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

nobody to come after him as a prophet

00:17:55--> 00:17:57

and this is why Allah

00:17:59--> 00:18:00

caused for all of his sons

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

to die during his lifetime

00:18:03--> 00:18:06

because he didn't want people to come afterwards

00:18:06--> 00:18:09

and say this is the lineage of Muhammad

00:18:09--> 00:18:13

salallahu alayhi wasalam. So nubuwa remains today. Prophethood

00:18:13--> 00:18:16

is there today. No. Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa

00:18:16--> 00:18:20

sallam did not leave sons behind. Hence, he

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

did not leave a lineage behind.

00:18:23--> 00:18:25

Yes. His daughter carried on

00:18:25--> 00:18:28

the blood of Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

But the lineage of Rasulullah

00:18:30--> 00:18:34

salallahu alaihi wa sallam in Islam is according

00:18:34--> 00:18:36

to the father. Call them by their fathers.

00:18:36--> 00:18:39

If someone has a son, his name will

00:18:39--> 00:18:42

carry on. But he has a daughter, his

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

blood will carry on. Yes. But his lineage

00:18:45--> 00:18:48

ends there. So Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam's

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

lineage

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

end ended there. And this is why we

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

see

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

in

00:18:53--> 00:18:55

the in Suratul Qosa, Allah says

00:18:59--> 00:19:01

Indeed it is your enemy who claims

00:19:01--> 00:19:04

that you are barren and you have left

00:19:04--> 00:19:05

behind no sons.

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

You have no lineage and you are cut

00:19:08--> 00:19:10

off. It is Him

00:19:10--> 00:19:13

who is barren and it is He who

00:19:13--> 00:19:16

is cut off and He has no son

00:19:16--> 00:19:18

and no lineage. You know why? Because Muhammad

00:19:18--> 00:19:22

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam despite not having sons

00:19:22--> 00:19:25

that remained alive after him and despite not

00:19:25--> 00:19:28

having a lineage that continued, his message is

00:19:28--> 00:19:31

spread throughout the globe. And today we are

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

only sitting here

00:19:33--> 00:19:33

because

00:19:33--> 00:19:37

Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam passed the message on

00:19:37--> 00:19:38

from Allah

00:19:39--> 00:19:40

So his message

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

went farther

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

and much,

00:19:44--> 00:19:45

much further beyond

00:19:46--> 00:19:49

what a person may actually achieve from his

00:19:49--> 00:19:51

son carrying on his lineage. May Allah

00:19:53--> 00:19:54

grant us the ability

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

to practice upon what has been said. And

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

may Allah

00:19:58--> 00:20:01

improve our lives.

00:19:58--> 00:20:01

improve our lives.
