After that, we move on to the next Hadith.
And our next parable
is narrated by Al Hakim
in his mustard rock,
as well as it been hidden in his so here
it is narrated by ns rhodiola, right
colocado sudo la heat sallallahu alayhi wa sallam liquidly insane in Fela tattoo
ama Holly on fire kulu ma instructor Falak woman from sector Felisa luck with alika Malou,
fire kulu and a Mac. So either a data medic terokkar or a jar to sadaqa, Lew Wasserman
and America hi to the halter Maharajah that fell
in concern. When I tell it Tati, Ali,
in this Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
Every person has three companions.
As for the first companion, he says, and this is at the time of death.
He says, Whatever you have spent, it is for you. And whatever you have withheld from spending, then it is not for you.
And that is his wealth, that is his wealth. As for another companion, he says, I am with you.
But when you arrive at the door of the king,
I leave you and I return.
So, that is his family and his relatives.
As for the other companion, he says, I am with you,
where you are entering into and from where you will come out from.
So that is his deeds.
So, he will say you were the most insignificant to me of these three.
And so this Halley's First of all, it has been narrated through several different wordings
several different versions, by different companions, it has been narrated
and the scholars differed concerning its authenticity. But perhaps with the multiple different narrations it can be elevated to the level of hesson
as graded by been hijacked,
it could be elevated to the level of sahid
as was considered by a hacking and inhibition. And so they consider this idea to be authentic.
Now, in other narrations of this,
of this Hadith,
the Hadith starts off by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying
the example of man and the example of death is like a man who has three companions.
So in that wording of the Hadith, we understand that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is comparing,
comparing three things.
And these three things are our wealth, our family and our deeds, he is comparing them to three friends that we have in our life.
what these three things will do at the time of death,
what they will do at the time of death.
And so the point the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was making through this parable was how these three things they accompany us in this life.
Just like three friends that we have, that would cherish their company.
And so the first is your wealth.
It was with you throughout your life.
You earned it. You worked hard for it.
And then you are
Either spent it
in what would benefit you
with regards to your IRA
or you withheld and did not spend it
in sadhaka, nzqa, etc.
So at the time of death,
it will part from you.
And it will say, what you have spent is for you and what you have withheld from spending, it is not for you, meaning whatever you have spent,
it is for you, you will benefit from it in the era, whatever you withheld from spending,
you know it is not for you,
it is of no benefit for you.
Or whatever you spent in that which won't bring you any benefit in either you spent it in her arm, then it will be against you. Or you spent it in that which was Helen.
But you only did it for the dunya. And so you won't get anything of it. And
so this wealth
that you worked so hard for in the dunya
it will remain behind in this world.
You will part from it and it will part from you.
You possess the in this life, you cherished it, you thought this is mine.
And you were so attached to it at the time of death, will it benefit you? No, it won't enter with you in your grave, but rather it will remain back in the dunya. In fact, it will be transferred over to others your inheritors.
And none of it will go with you into your grave. The second the second companion is your family
and your closest kin
They are the ones who would bring you comfort
will bring you love in this world.
They would be there with you in your thick and you're thinner.
Serving you taking care of you being there with you at a time of need.
So when it's time for you to leave this world,
they will prepare your burial.
And they will wash you and they will shout you. And then they'll pray your janazah
and they will also follow you to your grain.
But then, once they have lowered you into a grave and buried you
they will say as mentioned in this Hadith, I am with you meaning in this dunya I am with you all the way until this point.
But then when you arrive at the door of the king, I leave you and I returned back to the meaning once you have arrived at the door
that leads to a loss of Hannah who was added to King
that's it. This is where I say goodbye.
And so although your family,
they will still remember you and be attached to you for some time after your death.
Eventually, they too will move on.
Just like your wealth. And they too eventually they'll forget you.
And their time will come as well. Their time to leave the dunya will come in as well.
And so these are the first two companions, the third.
The third is our deeds, both good and bad.
And so it is our deeds
that we plant in the ground today to harvest tomorrow in the era.
They were with us in this life.
From the moment we reached the age of responsibility, the age of puberty, where every single thing that we did, no matter how small it was, no matter how big it was, it was being written it was being recorded
until the very last breath that we take.
And so our deeds
unlike the first two, they will not remain behind in the dunya
they will follow us to our grave and they are the only thing that will enter with us
into our grain and they will accompany us
When we are resurrected, when we come out from our raves, as mentioned in this Hadith, what do the deeds say? They say, I am with you, where you are entering, meaning your grave, and from where you will come out, meaning when you are resurrected on the Day of Judgment, I will accompany you until you reach Allah subhana wa Tada.
And so it is our deeds, it is our deeds that we did not really care much about.
It is our deeds that we did not really pay attention to we did not take seriously. And so this is why he will say, at the very end of the Hadith, what does it say? It says,
the person says, to the deeds, he says you were the most insignificant
of the three, I looked at you as being the most insignificant.
And so the example of these three things, our wealth, our family, and our deeds.
A beautiful example is how
a beautiful example of how
they will benefit us in the era, or how our deeds will benefit us in Africa and the other two will not
our wealth and our family will not benefit us
is the example of
a governor who is appointed by a king over a certain land to govern.
And so after a year, the king he calls the governor
to check up on him to see what he's been doing, to bring him to account.
So this governor, he happens to have many friends,
he has many contacts.
he could take with him,
those who may be able to benefit him and help him
when he is before the king.
But there are only three of his companions, who he cherishes who he's he looks at as being valuable.
the first is his wealth.
He looks at his wealth, when he's about to leave home on this journey to the king.
And he thinks he thinks to himself, I can't really take you with me.
You're going to have to stay here.
And I'm going to have to go.
And so he leaves his wealth at home.
And then when he reaches his car,
and he sits in his car,
and he's ready to take this journey to the king.
His family accompany him to the car. But he's like, I can't really take you with me.
The King won't accept that. And so he bids them for a while. They don't enter with him in the car.
But what does he take with him, he takes with him his deeds. Whatever he did, he takes with him.
when he reaches before the king,
and he's there before him,
if he had good deeds, then these good deeds will testify for him.
They will testify for him, they will defend him
and they will be there for him his time of need. Whereas his bad deeds if he had bad deeds,
then they will testify against them. And this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us about our deeds, that they will testify for us on the Day of Judgment. And so,
for example, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned how
if we fasted, that fast will come on the Day of Judgment before Allah, to intercede on our behalf. And that fasting will say, Oh Allah,
I prevented him from satisfying his hunger and his thirst and his sexual desires for your sake. So let me be of benefit to him.
And likewise, other good deeds will testify on our behalf.
And so this shows us the importance of our deeds as compared to our wealth and our children. Now, there's another Headey that's
more well known and famous than this hadith
And that is the Hadees, found in Bukhari and Muslim. concerning these three things, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, yet but Allah yet
for your God is nanny wire because
that three things follow the dead person to his grave.
Two of these go back, return back to the dunya. And only one remains with him yet to bow hoo, hoo hoo, hoo hoo
his family, his wealth and his deeds follow him for yoji, Hulu and Hulu weyerbacher Honolulu, and so, his family and his wealth, they return back to the dunya whereas his deeds remain with him.
And so our deeds will accompany us to our grades.
All these three things will accompany us to our graves,
our wealth, our family and our deeds. Now some may be wondering, we can understand our family and our deeds accompanying us. But how about our wealth? How does our wealth
come with us all the way to our grave. The scholars say what that means is, for example, a wealthy person who had slaves and other people under his authority, they will come with him as well.
Other scholars they said what it means is that
a lot of people will follow him to his grave because he was wealthy, hoping that they'll get a share of his wealth when it is divided among the inheritors.
So either way, his wealth does accompany him to his grave.
But the only thing that enters with him into his grave and remains with him, his his deeds.
As mentioned by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in another Hadith,
describing how the deeds
you will see them, you will see them when you are buried in your grave. And that is in that long Hadeeth of Albert you've been as in the long run when he mentioned what happens on the first night when we are in our grave. And so in that Hadith, he mentioned a lot of things the prophet SAW, Selim mentioned many things that happen once we are buried in our grave.
How the two angels come and ask us the three questions and also among the things he mentioned. So the longer it was lm t Rajan has an L Word
has an O Thea has an O ri.
And a man will come.
When he's in his grave, a man will come this is for the believer.
A man will come and appear before him. He has a very beautiful face. He has very beautiful clothing, and he has a very beautiful smell.
For your Guru absher, Villa de Asuka,
this man will say to the believer,
have good tidings have glad tidings of that which will make you happy. And so he will say for your kuruman and he will say Who are you?
For your guru Anna Anna Luca, sorry. He will say I'm your good deeds, he will say I am your good. So this shows us how our deeds will accompany us and be with us in our games. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned the opposite. With regards to the disbeliever, he will see a very
evil and ugly person
and a very foul smell will be coming from him. And he will say I am giving you news of that which will grieve you and disappoint you. And so he says Who are you? And so he says I am your Daddy, I am your bad deeds.
And so all of this shows us that
our deeds will accompany us, to our graves to remain there with us, as opposed to our wealth and our family. Among the lessons that we learn from this Hadeeth
is first of all
the importance of setting our priorities straight in this life.
we need to wonder
Stand and constantly remind ourselves that
we are not here to enjoy ourselves and live forever.
So we shouldn't make our priority,
wealth and the dounia
but rather our deeds and what have we put forward for tomorrow.
And so invest in your assets from today, through good deeds, not through wealth.
Don't chase after wealth
and then invest in something that will remain behind in dystonia, but rather invest in your Acura by putting forward good deeds, plant the seeds of good deeds in this dunya to harvest the fruit in the accurate
thing that we learned from this idea is
that most of what distract us most of what distracts us in this dunya
are our wealth and our family.
And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam specifically
mentioned these two things even though he could have mentioned many other things of the dunya
but he mentioned specifically these two things, our wealth and our family
because Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran
warned us of these two things
and how they distract us. Yeah, you have levena Amman, la tierra Hickam and wailuku while Allah do command, decree law,
or you who believe, do not
allow yourselves to become distracted by your wealth and your children.
What did I mention here? These two things, your wealth and your children. Don't let these two things distract you from the remembrance of Allah.
Woman you've had a relic of a kamikaze rule. Whoever does that, then he will be among the losers.
And Allah subhanahu wa tada says, In I'm wailuku where I will add to configure
will law who I know who I don't have him.
Your wealth and your children are a fit in a lot only mentions these two things, your wealth and your children are a fitna and with Allah is the best reward, the greatest reward.
Also, Allah subhanho wa Taala says regarding
in Surah, to fetch after the conquest of Mecca,
those who recently embraced Islam, and they were not ready to go out and fight in jihad.
And so they started, they started putting forward excuses. And so one of the things they said is Shahar. letna
were Luna Luna festa festival and they said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
our wealth and our families busied us, we became preoccupied and busy with our wealth and our families. So
ask Allah to forgive us.
Also, Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
what will benefit us on the day of judgment and what will not benefit us? Allah subhanho wa Taala said, yo mela young Pharaoh manual will happen
on the day of judgment on the day in which
no wealth nor children will benefit a person.
Again, only these two things are mentioned. No wealth, nor any children will benefit a person. In laminata law, Hobbes Calvin Saleem, except the one who comes to along with a pure and a clean heart.
And this could also be
any why Allah subhanho wa Taala specifically mentioned these two things could also be because
they were deceived, and they thought, you know, these things will benefit us before a lot on the Day of Judgment. And so we will sacrifice ourselves with our wealth, or our families and our children will benefit us.
And save us from punishment.
And so loss of hair who attalla refuted this by mentioning these examples.
And we have other examples
throughout the Quran where, you know,
our families will not be of any benefit to us
on the Day of Judgment before Allah subhanho wa Taala.
this can be the next lesson that we can learn from this hadith and that is
that although our family will be present on the Day of Judgment,
they will not be able to benefit us they will be of no use to us. So even if
in our family, there were righteous individuals,
they will not benefit us on the Day of Judgment.
And so if
the father of Ibrahim alayhis salam could not benefit his father, before Allah, and how about the rest of us?
new Halle his Salaam could not benefit his son, before Allah, and he is destined for the Hellfire, then how will the rest of us
if the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam being the best of creation and the most beloved to Allah
will not be able to benefit his uncle Abu Talib, who stood up for Him and who defended him, and who he wished could have accepted Islam, if he will not be able to benefit him on the Day of Judgment, then how about others.
And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, here wilna your field will not mean as he, on the day in which
men will flee from his brother will only he would be from his mother and from his father.
Well saw he bet he was 20 and from his spouse, his wife, from his children,
those closest to us in this dunya we will be running away from them. It could literally mean him yoga even shutting down your knee. Why? Because each one of them on that date
will be so worried about themselves to bother about others.
No one will be carrying, will be caring about others, there'll be only worried about themselves, how can I save myself on this day?
Finally, among the lessons that we learned from this hadith is
that what we leave behind?
Whatever we leave behind of wealth,
and family, yes, they will not enter us they will not enter with us in our graves.
But when they return to the dunya
they couldn't be of benefit to us, while we are in our groups. How the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
either metal in some in Coto Hi I'm Who am Allah who ilimitado that when a person dies,
this is when his his deeds come to an end. They cut off, he cannot put forward a single deed after this when he dies.
Whatever he's done, he's done
in the dunya
and he cannot do any more good deeds. At this time.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, except for three things, so his deeds come to an end.
Except for three things. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in lambing saw the cutting jariya with a lemon you into who they are, well, I don't care who you had,
except three things.
A soda kajaria which is a an ongoing charity. He left behind a charity that continued benefiting people. So the reward goes to him in his grave.
Or acknowledged that he left behind that is benefiting people after his death or a righteous child that he leaves behind. That prays for him after his death.
So wealth can benefit you and
Your family, your children that pray for you, because you left them upon righteousness, they will now be of benefit to you.
And so we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala
to make us from among those who
our concern our main concern our priority in this dunya is
nothing but our deeds
and to grant us pure hearts
and to make us do deeds that are pleasing to Him, and that are sincerely for his sake, without will come to the end of tonight's session.
