hamdulillah muda who understand the struggle Pharaoh, when many will be here to actually when all the below him in Cerulean phocoena Amin See ya Dr. Molina mija the healer who for them will they will meet you they look for their heart the other.
Last week we looked at the greatness of Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam in this world, we looked at him as a great leader. And we looked at some of the accomplishments of his leadership in this world.
Today, we want to look to the future
and look at the greatness of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, on the Day of Judgment.
Because there are many Hadees, about the station of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam on the day of judgment, and it's important for us to know these Hadith to understand them, and to take lessons from them that we can apply to our lives. And I want to focus specifically on one aspect of the grid station that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam will have on that day, the Macomb and Muhammad, the praiseworthy station that you will have on that day, and that is the concept of the Shiva the intercession of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for his ummah. It's a very important and very beautiful concept in our religion of the Shiva and what is the chef ah, what is the word chef Amin,
Shiva or intercession means that on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhana wa Taala will give some people and some things, the honor of interceding on behalf of someone else. For example,
imagine if they were two friends, right? One friend was righteous. The other friend who was addicted to some sins. They both were Muslims.
The the sinful friend, he was he had a good heart. He loved Allah and His messenger. He couldn't give up his sins. But he also would support his righteous friend in every turn he could. He helped him financially helped him in every way he could. On the Day of Judgment. Allah may give the righteous man the honor of interceding for his friend so his friend doesn't go to Jehan Number goes to Jana instead, right? This is called intercession where Allah will give certain people on the Day of Judgment, this honor, that they can intercede on behalf of someone who is going to jahannam to save them from Jahannam and take him to Jana instead. And there are many categories of people and
even things that will intercede on the Day of Judgment. So for example, the one that's most commonly known in our community, of course, is the harvest of the Quran. That if someone memorizes the Quran, and they live by it, they can intercede for according to the veneration between seven to 10 of the family members on the Day of Judgment. There's also narrations about the matter, the one who dies visibility law, that that person will be able to intercede for up to 70 people on the day of judgment. And there are many other innovations of the OLA mother righteous Allah ma, you sit there in those who are truthful towards Allah subhanho wa taala, the only or the righteous and even the
child who dies before puberty. Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said that if a child dies, you know the very young age and the parents are patient with that, then that child on the Day of Judgment, will intercede on behalf of the parents and say that I'm not going to Jana to take my parents with me. Right so the child will intercede on behalf of the parents. And it's not only people that intercede, but it's even nonliving things in our eyes. So we know for example, that the Quran will intercede on the day of judgment for those who live by the Quran and who love the Quran, that it will stand there and intercede for them on the Day of Judgment
and other good deeds as well like fasting and like charity will intercede on behalf of a person. So intercession is an important part of our Aqeedah have the day of judgment that many people and things will intercede, but the greatest intercession, the highest honor that Allah has given to any of his creation on the Day of Judgment, belongs to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there's a difference of opinion on how many levels of intercession he hasn't the Day of Judgment, but three can be confirmed from Hadith. Number one Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will intercede for the day of judgment to begin. This is confirmed in Hadith, right? That the Day of
Judgment, the actual judgment itself will not commence until Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi salam intercedes on behalf of all of creation, the all of humanity. He will intercede on their behalf that we want the judgment to begin
And then Allah will begin in. Number two Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will intercede on behalf of the righteous, that they enter Jannah without any accounting.
So on the Day of Judgment,
the average person will have to account for their life. You'll be asked about your life and how you spent it, your youth and how you spent it, your health and how you spent it, your knowledge and what you did with it, your wealth, how you earned it, and how you spent it. There'll be a detailed accounting of the Day of Judgment. But Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has informed us that there is a category of people who will enter Jannah without in accounting.
And the the idea of the intercession is you mentioned in Sahih Muslim, that he will on that day ask ALLAH that to intercede, he'll intercede on behalf of these people and ask Allah to enter them into gender without accounting. So these individuals will skip the accounting altogether and go straight to Jana. So that's the second intercession of Rasulullah sallallahu or the user that is unique to him. And the third one, the third one is that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will intercede on behalf of the major centers of his Alma on those who are destined for Jahannam on those who were supposed to go to jahannam for a very long time. Rama to lil al Amin the mercy to the universe will
ask Allah and ask Allah and ask Allah until they are taken out of Jannah.
So let's look at some of the Hadees related to the Shiva of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam and derive some distance from them.
It is narrated in the Sunnah of Aetherium easy that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam said and once an angel came to me with a choice for my Lord, it the angel came to me with a choice for my god, the choice was half of my ummah enters into Jana or I can intercede for anyone who did not worship someone besides Allah. Right? I can intercede for anyone who did not commit shirk, and Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said, I chose the intercession. I chose the intercession why, well data had used which is not as strong, but is acceptable, explains it in more details, right in the other version of this Hadees It is narrated that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I had a choice
between intercession or half of my ummah entering Jana. He said, I chose intercession because it is broader and covers more people.
Then he said, he asked, Do you think my intercession will be for the righteous? No, it is for the sinners. He said it is for the sons think about it. Who needs intercession on the Day of Judgment. Someone who was righteous someone who was from the oldie of Allah
Inshallah, without intercession, they will be going to China, but someone who believed in Allah and they were addicted to some kind of sin, they had some weakness, they, they fell into sin upon sin upon sin. That is the person who needs someone to vouch for them on the Day of Judgment, somebody to ask Allah to give them a chance to put them into gender. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam said that my intercession it is not for the righteous specifically it is for the sinners. Another Hadith also in a theorem easy Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam said specifically Shiva De Luca Ilmenau Mati that my intercession will be for the major centers of my Oma. My intercession will be for the
major centers of my ummah, meaning someone who fell into major sin.
But they died with the heat they died with Islam in the heart.
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam will intercede for them in the afterlife, and we'll go into more details with the as with each narration, it gets more details of exactly how the intercession will be.
Another hadith is narrated that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam said he was given five gifts that no other prophet was given five gifts that no other prophet was given. Number one, every other Prophet was sent to a community of civilization. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent to all of humanity. In fact, he was into all of jinn and humanity. Right? He was sent to everybody that was his first gift. Number two, was that the honeymoon, the booty or spoils of war, were halal for this ummah, and not for the humans before us. Number three is that we can pray Salah anywhere, the humans before us they had to pray in their places of worship. But as a Muslim, you can pray
anywhere. Right? You can be up in the mountains so that time comes you can pray this is a gift for this ummah. Number four is that Allah put into the hearts of the enemies of Rasulullah saw some a fear of him. This is a gift for Rasulullah. So it's time that these enemies feared him. And finally, what is the fifth gift he was given? He said a Shiva the intercession. Now the Hadith commentators say what is a Shiva because we said the Shiva
In a general sense, where they go half his will intercede on behalf of his family and the module intercede on behalf of 70 people and the child who died will intercede on behalf of the parents. But what is a Shiva? Shiva means the great intercession at the beginning, where Rasulullah Slussen will intercede on behalf of all of humanity that the Day of Judgment begins. And in one of the most Linteus Hadith, found in Sahih, Bukhari and Sahih Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam give a detailed description of how the shofar will happen. So inshallah let's go through that hadith will go to butcher the Buhari narration and the Muslim nation put them together to get the full details
and just extract some lessons from that. And this narration It was reported by many Sahaba, Abu Huraira and Sybil Malik and others, because this took place at a feast on the rates that there was a feast and lamb had been served and that was Rasulullah saw some favorite meat right Rasulullah so some love to eat lamb. So those of you having Mutton Biryani today, inshallah that's, you know, the lamb is part of the Sunnah there. So they were having lamb and they were sitting together and talking, and someone asked Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the Day of Judgment. So he gave a detailed description about how it would start, and this is one of the longest This is about
the Day of Judgment. So it is stated that Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said that I will be the leader of humanity and the Day of Judgment, he asked us to harbor Do you know why?
He said, on the Day of Judgment, Allah will resurrect all of humanity, and will lead them on an open plane, when you can see anybody, everybody will be there. And people will wait, the and the sun will be directly above them. And people will be in a state of stress and anxiety, they will be worried. And there'll be so stressed out that they will say I just want the day to start. Even those who know they're going to jahannam will be like I just want to date to start. And to give you an idea of what this feels like, you know, you know, for the kids in the audience, when you're waiting for your report. And you worry that you fail the subject, you know that the stress of not knowing whether you
pass or fail, is worse than knowing you failed, right? Like you just want to get it over. You just want to get your report in your hand. That's how it is on a higher level that you worried about your your book of deeds, am I gonna get in my right hand, my left hand, you just want the day to start? We just want to get you over wood. Right? You just don't want to wait any longer. So people will talk to each other. And they'll ask each other, who can we speak to, to intercede on our behalf? Who can we speak to to go and ask Allah to start to start the judgment. So some people will see this go to other? Let's go to Adam the father of humanity. So a delegation of people will go to other Malisa
and they will say you either you are the father of mankind, Allah created you with his own hands and all the the angels who prostrate to you and let you live in Jannah. Will you not intercede for us? So Adam Alayhis Salam will say today, my Lord is more angry than he has ever been before or will ever be.
My Lord is more angry than he has ever been before or ever will be again. And I disobeyed Him and I ate from the tree. So I'm worried about myself, go to new.
So they will go to Noah, profit New Orleans, salam, and again, they will ask him the same thing. Right. So you are the first messenger. You were the first person to be sent, you know, to know George 22 to convey a message to a people and Allah called you a Tankful slave. So when you not intercede for us, and you will see the same thing and there's two narrations about his reply, one. The reason is, he said I already use them I do it as well. Now what does this mean?
Allah gave every prophet a one dua, that they will guaranteed the DUA will be answered. And all of the prophets besides Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam used up the DUA in this world. So no Elisa made the DUA that Allah causes the flood that destroys these people, right? That was him using up his dua. Now the example Sulaiman al Islami the DUA to be given a kingdom and like anybody else will ever have. So they use the DUA in this world. Another Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said, I saved my dua for my ummah, on the Day of Judgment. This is the shofar he saved is to offer the day of judgment to guarantee that his ummah goes to Jana. So New Orleans, somebody already used up my
dua, another generation he mentioned that he will say that, you know, Allah told me not to, you know, not to ask him to see my son and I asked him to say my sons, I'm worried about myself.
So he will tell him to go to Abraham to Ibrahim Alayhi Salam. So they will go to Ibrahim Al Islam, they will say the same thing to him. And they will see that you are the friend of Allah. And you know, can you intercede for us in behemoth Islam will say I lied three times in my life, and we're worried about those three lies. You're worried about myself or somebody else, or as Moses was Musa alayhis salam. Now what's interesting here is that these things that they are worried about, we wouldn't consider them to be since like, they're like, very light compared to how we live our lives. These are very light and simple matters. Like if family Sam's worried about what
He called Three lies. But what are these three lies? Somebody wanted to keep their bikini wanted to kidnap his wife. So he told them to see my sister, meaning my sister in law, my sister in humanity, right? So they don't kidnapper. We all can see that's not really a lie that's saving someone's life. Right?
We know when you when he was going to destroy the idols that people wanted him to go to the festival and he said, I'm sick. He was a child when he said, I'm sick. But as a old man, he's worried that he lied. How many times have we as kids lied about being sick, and we don't even think twice about it. And the third one, when the idols were destroyed, and they asked him who did it, he said, Ask the biggest one. Right, maybe he did it. Again, he's doing our dream. He's teaching them. But still, he's worried on the day of judgment about this shows that the severity of the Day of Judgment, that even those with the most righteous will still be worried about their own souls. So people will go to
Musa Lisa, a delegation will go to Musala Islam and ask him, let's say that you spoke to Allah, and you are His messenger. Can you intercede on behalf of Musa Islam and say I killed someone. I killed someone I'm worried about my own self. Go to Jesus go to easily salaam now Musa Islam again. He didn't kill someone on purpose. He saw a man oppressing another man like basically like a cop doing police brutality. And he went to punch the guy in the face and the guy died. Right? Wasn't killing guy on purpose. You're not sinful for that in Islam. If you kill someone by mistake, not sinful for that in Islam, but this day will be so severe that he'd be worried about that. So they will go to
Jesus peace be upon him, Eastside Islam, they will ask him the same thing. And he will simply reply, that's not my job. Go to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It's interesting to note that easily Islam has not mentioned anything that he did wrong. I because Isa Al Islam after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam II saw the Islam was the prophet would like the highest level and this by doing this, it shows us which prophets have the highest level because in Islam, everything goes through levels and even the Gambia have different levels. And the highest level of the Gambia we know number one is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but often we have the old Assam and who
are the old Assam. These five mentioned in this hadith, new and Ibrahim and Musa and Isa and Rasulullah sallallahu some these are the greatest of the Gambia, the greatest of all of the children of ardently Salaam. So people will go to the Prophet Mohammed Salah ism and they will ask him they see you at the seal of the prophets you the final messenger Allah that He has forgiven you for everything. So will you not intercede for us and He will say this is my job, and he will go to the Throne of Allah and you will prostrate before Allah and He will ask Allah using words that we never heard on this earth words that will only come to know about on that day. And Allah will ask him to
lift his head and you will see oh Muhammad, raise your head, whatever you ask you will be granted. And on that day Rasulullah Salallahu Salam will make one dua he see ya Robbie Almighty almighty. Oh my Lord, forgive my Oma. That will be his intercession. Oh ALLAH forgive Maya. And now there are multiple generations about what happens next one, the ration states that he will ask Allah to,
to allow the righteous to enter Jannah without any reckoning, right? And another generation says that he'll ask Allah to forgive the people who are supposed to go to Johanna, the believers are supposed to go to jungle and the scholars put these narrations together and say, these are both going to happen at different points in the Day of Judgment. Right. So we said to summarize
We said that one of the great virtues of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is that he was gifted a Shiva to intercession on the last day. We said the many people and things will need to see them the last day, the half is of the Quran. The matter, the Olia the Quran itself, right, these will all intercede on the day of judgment, but the greatest intercession was saved Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he will have the Macomb and Muhammad the highest most praiseworthy station of the Day of Judgment and his intercession will be made up of three main things actually many more some scholars even up to seven or 11.
But they are three primary parts of his intercession number one for the day to start, which he mentioned in his lengthy Hadees they will go to each of the prophets finally they will go to Rasulullah saw Islam and he will he will make dua, Allah will start into start the day of judgment. Number two, that he will make intercession that the righteous enter Jannah without any reckoning, which is also mentioned in the same Hadees and number three, that he will make intercession for the major centers of his ummah. And you mentioned to you for her thesis about that. So we ask Allah to allow us to be from those who intercede on the day of judgment. And if you are not from them, you
ask Allah to save us from being from those who missed out on gender altogether and to keep us on the straight path to make us from the righteous to this ummah. Subhana rahbek Robin is a Tmic balloon was salam ala mursaleen
hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen
Hamdulillah he was there was Salatu was Salam o Allah Mallanna Ba ba ba ba in our second Hadith okay tabula rasa you heard you heard him Hamid in sallallahu alayhi wa salam was Cheryl morning what they said to her, we're sitting with our robot attend bonala We're Colo Colo the relatively narrow
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has mentioned many, many Hadith says about the intercession on the Day of Judgment because this is an important topic. And it is in the range of that on that day Rasulullah sallallahu some will stand and he was asked Allah Oh ALLAH my ummah, my ummah. So Allah will tell him go to Johanna. Anyone you see what they seeds, what have faith, take him out. So he will go to Johanna. He will go and look at the people of Jahannam and he will take out everyone the seeds word of fate and put them into general. You go back and ask Allah again. My Ummah, my ummah, Allah will tell him anyone who even atoms word of fate, that you see take them out and put
them into gender. And you will do that again.
And you will go back and some integrations the three times solutions the four times and each time Allah will tell him to take out anyone who has even the slightest amount of faith to such an extent they won the ration says that Allah will see by my power and my measures majesty, I will remove from Jahannam anyone who said La Ilaha illa Allah, I will remove from Jahannam anyone who said La Ilaha illa Allah Subhana Allah will say this, another narration Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said, on the Day of Judgment, Allah will be praised by people who never did any good. And you will take them out of Jahannam after they had been burned and put them into gender, by His mercy, after the
intercession of those who intercede. So this Hadees holds us down the Day of Judgment. There'll be some people who never did a good deed in their life, but only through the intercession of the friends or the righteous or their family. Allah would have mercy on them and take them out and put them into Jannah. So what are the lessons we can take from these Hadith and why are these hadith is important? Number one, these are Hadees should remind us of the MACOM of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was the best or he is the best of mankind, and he is the leader of humanity on the Day of Judgment. Number two, we should increase our love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam, that he saved his dua for the last day. And he cares about every member of the Ummah, even the major sinners, you know, we don't have hearts that strong. Many of us we look down upon the major sinners, we judge them. We, you know, we think badly of them. Rasulullah saw some he only wants them to go to jail. He cares about every single member of his OMA, he is Ramadan did Allah mean the mercy to the universe. And we see even in his lifetime, there was a man amongst the Sahaba, who will be brought forward and you will be warped for being intoxicated, because he had an alcohol addiction. And once the Sahaba began to sway him and to judge him and to say harsh words to him,
because he always coming intoxicated, and Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said, don't say a bad word to him because he loves Allah and His messenger. This was the level of care that Rasulullah sallallahu polysome has even for the sinners amongst his ummah. Number three, these are Hadees should not encourage us to sin. Right? Rather, he should encourage us to strive for righteousness.
Because on the Day of Judgment, these two categories here the Rasulullah Rasul Allah, so Allah says he's going to intercede for number one is that the righteous enter without any reckoning. And number two is that the major sins get taken out of Jahannam, after they've already been burned for a while, which of the two categories do we want to be? I hope you all want to be from the category that intergender without any reckoning. And there are other Hadees where Rasulullah sallallahu Elysium explains to us what what qualities are needed to be part of that category. And they can be summarized into one quality. There's one thing you need to do in your life, to get to be part of
that group, they can enter Jannah without any reckoning, and that is to have firm the Wakil to live a life of the worker to trust only Allah to completely 100% trust the plan of Allah
idea many Hadees and this is what they indicated the people of Tawakkol on the Day of Judgment they will enter without any hisab
so this is what we should aim for. So these are these should teach us to aim for righteousness and to aim for the highest level and to try and be the best we can be at the same time. These are these should give us hope. If someone has an addiction, if someone has a weakness if someone who has a son, they cannot give up his head he should give them hope. If someone passed away and you know that person was a Muslim, but they lived a sinful life, you know they had addictions and problems. They couldn't give up this hadith
To give you hope for them, because Rasulullah Salallahu Salam has saved his dua for the day of judgment and he saved it for those categories of people.
So this gives us hope on the day of judgment or even in this world you will be dealing with our grief that these individuals will inshallah be those who Allah will intercede for.
Finally, we should strive to be from those who will intercede on the behalf of others.
We should strive to be from those categories. This in detain the onea, the shahada, Jehovah's, these are the categories we should strive to be from amongst the people who are so righteous, that Allah may give us this gift on the Day of Judgment. Because this is an order on the day of judgment if Allah gives someone this gift of interceding for family or friends is an honor that Allah is giving him if we should want to be on the side we Allah gives us the honor, not where we are, you know caging on the on the edge of hellfire and we need someone to intercede on our behalf. So we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us the firm and proper Love of Allah and His Messenger Salallahu
Alaihe Salam and his religion and to keep us steadfast on the straight path and to make us from the righteous and to make us and our children from the leader of the righteous Robina Artina for dunya Hassan up fulfill authority has now working as governor robbing the hub learner as why Geno's will react in a Kurata our unit Akina mama Allah Martina Bihar alikhan Harajuku Nina will only come once you work Subhana rahbek Robin is at Yama, Yasuo Salam and I'm wrestling with hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salam
