In the lambda Lillah
wa salatu wa salam O Allah, Allah Allah Allah He was happy, he said,
My dear brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
We are starting today a series of lectures called questions, a total of
eight questions that each one of us will have to answer
three of them when we die in our grave, and five of them when we stand up for Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment,
inshallah, we will do this over a series of Joomla Ls valterra make it easy and enable me to explain these things as it is the right of these things to be explained in sha Allah musang.
My brothers and sisters, when something is certain,
then the only intelligent thing to do is to prepare for it.
That is not something which anyone should need reminding about.
But it is the nature of the human being. That he is engaged in chasing and being worried about all sorts of things which are highly uncertain, but not concerned about the one thing about which there is no doubt. And that thing is our depth.
People deny everything on Earth, people deny God people deny whether man landed on the moon or whether the earth is spherical people deny the presence of germs, people deny every single thing. But I don't know of anybody who denies that one day, he will die.
And no matter what he thinks will happen to him thereafter, he may have his own version of what happens after death.
He may accept the version of Islam which we believe is the truth, or he may deny it.
But he does not deny that he will die
is the one single irrefutable reality of life. And so it is essential that we as Muslims understand what it is and prepare for it.
It is also essential that we learn about death and what happens thereafter because it is a matter of our Akita. It's a matter of our creed and our faith.
So who can tell us about deaths and what happens thereafter? Who can tell us about deaths and what happens thereafter?
Only the one who does not die
a lie you will Li Li Mo only the one who does not die can tell us what happens after death.
And that is Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And let us see what Allah subhanaw taala told us about death and what happens thereafter so that we can be prepared for it. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the in a will the inevitability of death in many places. And in one of those places Allah subhanho wa Taala said about those who deny the meeting with Allah, He said
be the balloon.
In Keno Allah subhanaw taala said, and they say, when we are dead, and we have become lost in the earth, when we have become one with the soil. Will we indeed be reincarnated will be indeed be recreated a new
Allah says Nay, but they deny the meeting with their
they deny the meeting with their
mother said say to them, oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
say to them indeed the Angel of Death who is set over you will take your souls say to them that you will die
and the Angel of Death
has been set over you will take your soul and then you shall be brought to Europe.
And then Allah says and if you could only then see them or Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
the people the mercury moon, please understand my brothers and sisters Allah subhanho wa Taala did not say Cafiero mushy raccoon he said mercury moon.
The people who deny their joram their sin is denial.
This includes Muslims, Salas, rhinos, Allah says and if you could see them if you could see the moon, who will be standing before they rub their heads hanging with shame and they will say oh our up Ravana Sharma we have now seen was Samia Anna and we have heard for Jana send us back into the world. We will do righteous good deeds
for JIRA normal sallyann in Makino because we now believe with certainty, my brothers and sisters, remind myself and you that the door closes once and for all, when we die.
After that there is no return. All of this good sense and wisdom which which will prevail on the day of judgment will prevail with everybody. But on that day, it has no use that wisdom must prevail before we die. so that we may return to our The one who created us, the one who gave us without asking the one who continued to feed us and to support us and to protect us, even when we were disobeying him.
I always asked myself and asked you to ask yourself, go and look in the mirror Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala gave you a good shape. He gave you a good face he gave you know he gave you a good body which works he gave you a good mind which works and ask your parents go and ask your parents if they're still alive.
Ask them did you specifically ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for a son or daughter like me?
Did your parents make dua?
Did you make dua for the kind of children who have Alhamdulillah I have the I have the pleasure of of knowing so many of these young ones who are like my own children. Mashallah.
Did you ask for a child like that?
What is the price of a child? If Allah subhanaw taala said said fine, I will give you a child like this. How much will you pay?
What will you pay? And if you don't pay enough, then this child will have one eye or he will have a hearing that he will have a heart which doesn't work or he will have a he will have one leg or one arm? Will you accept that?
Allah subhanaw taala gave us without asking.
Allah subhanaw taala continue to give us even when we were not grateful for this,
how many of us pray and thank Allah subhanaw taala every day for the kind of children we have. How many of us thank Allah monitor every day for the kind of parents we have? What would you and I do if Allah subhanaw taala had made a rule and said that tomorrow morning, you will wake up with only those things that you thank me for today.
How many of us will wake up without our faculties? How many of us will wake up maimed? How many of us will wake up blind and deaf and mad how many of us will wake up without families, how many of us will wake up without our wealth, all of which we take for granted day after day after day. We do not even say thanks to Allah subhanho wa Taala who gave us all of this? How many of us were born into wealth?
How many of us are money to burn?
It would have been a good thing if we had some a little bit more sense than the money we have.
How many of us today are burning and living off the wealth that we inherited? How many of us inherited bare land which had nothing on it and thanks to Telangana and whatever else, prices went up, and today you're sitting on millions? Not you're not you're doing not nothing to do with you.
You neither made effort for it? Nor did you have the intelligence to do anything about it. Nor do you even today know what to do about it.
Give me an example. How many of you have bought real estate have bought land in the place where the new capital of Andhra Pradesh is going to be formed?
Obviously, it's a place which where the land prices are going to skyrocket. At one point you should have bought land there 10 years ago How many of you bought land that shows the amount of intelligence you have? Please forgive me I this is my tongue.
If you could foresee your own future if you had any business
If you had any intelligence with regard to to development, you would have done that 10 years ago.
But no, you're too busy burning what you have.
Yet Allah subhanaw taala continues to give, yet Allah subhanaw taala does not stop
my brothers and sisters, time to wake up.
That is not the ending of life. Death is the beginning of a life that never ends. That is not the closing of the eyes. Death is the opening of the eyes. That is not where we stop seeing death is where we start seeing the reality for the first time.
That is where Mr. Bill failed on the unseen will be over because the unseen will become the scene
we will see the unseen and that is where the door will close forever.
Until that time, the door of the door of turning around is open
until the last birth in our body. But once that has happened,
Allah subhanaw taala said that death comes to every living thing. If you were born, you will die.
Whether you are a king or a queen, whether you are a prophet or a thief, whether you are a man or a woman, whether you are young or old, whether you are intelligent or stupid, whether you are rich or poor, whether you are strong or weak, whether you are sick or healthy, whether you are this or that you will die if you were born,
people will die, human beings will die, animals will die plants will die, every single thing which is living will end.
beautiful, everything is so clearly mentioned and specified.
Allah subhanaw taala said, M.
M, every living thing will taste death. Everyone will say will taste death and only on the Day of Resurrection only on the day of judgment will you be paid your wages in full,
all that you did the reward for all the good that you did. Allah subhanaw taala gives us some taste of his some taste of it in this dunya Alhamdulillah. The reward for God we see some taste of it here but the real reward Allah will give us on the Day of Judgment. So also the reward for sin, the reward for operation, the reward for cruelty. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows a taste of that in this world.
Allah test, nobody escapes, Allah shows a taste of this in this world. But the real punishment will come on the Day of Judgment, both the reward and the punishment will not end. And then the last one that I said he gave us a criterion to judge who is successful and who is not successful. Allah did not say the Indians are more successful than the Americans. Allah did not say the black people are more successful than the white people, or the white people are more successful than the Chinese people. Allah did not say this is more than Allah subhanho wa Taala did not say the rich are more successful than the poor. He didn't say the poor are more successful than the rich. He gave a
criterion to decide success. And what is their criteria? Allah subhanaw taala said waman Zoho ziani Nari Hillel, Janata Taka fez. Allah lesson the one who has been saved from the Hellfire and has been entered into the agenda has been entered into paradise. Only that person has succeeded.
Nobody else nobody else. I may have been the king of the world am I successful? I don't know until the day of judgment, whether I'm saved from the Hellfire or not if I was the king of the world, but on the Day of Judgment, I'm thrown into the Hellfire, I am a failure. All my kingdom will not help me or my wealth will not help me all my armies and ministers will not help me on my Java challenges dunia will not help me. On the other hand, if I was a poor man, and the world used to see that constantly I was engaged in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Am I successful? I do not know on the Day of Judgment, I will no poverty and what the world used to see as the worship of Allah
will not save me was that worship accepted by Allah? Did it have your class was it
worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala to please Him, or was I worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala to show the world that I am a holy and pious man, if I worshipped Allah subhanho wa Taala to show the world that I was a holy and pious man, I will be the first one to be thrown into the hellfire. This is the heavies which is called the Hadees of Salah as the heaviest of the three that's what I settled on. He was Abu Salim said, on the day of judgment, the first person to be thrown into the Hellfire, listen and listen. Well, he said, the first person to be thrown into the Hellfire will be that scholar of Islam will be that alum of Islam, who studied Dean who studied the religion in order
to be known as a scholar in order to impress the world in order to draw the attention of the people towards him in order to get following and followers and mores. This person on the day of judgment will be produced before Allah subhanaw taala it will be asked what did you do? The man was I studied the dean, I studied religion I studied Islam, and I worked all my life to spread Islam. It will be said to him, You are a liar. You studied Islam so that you will get a reputation you studied Islam to show the world that you are a scholar. You studied Islam so that the world will say Masha Allah Barolo sea of knowledge. What a wonderful man, what a wonderful scholar, all this happened. You had
the maximum Facebook, friends, you had the maximum hits on your YouTube, you were on some TV channel all your life, you are known as chefs foreign being full and been full on all of this happen to you. On this day, there is no reward for you. And that person would be thrown into the Hellfire who is the first person to go into the Hellfire, a Muslim scholar who studied Islam, and who practiced Islam and who and who spread who worked for the spread of Islam all his life. Why? Because there was no sincerity in his heart. There was no class in his heart. The world knew him and the world praise Him and the World Honored him but Allah subhanho wa Taala, who is a lamb that is pseudo, who knows
what is in the heart, Allah subhanaw taala did not accept that a Baba his whole life of ibadah will do him no good at all.
The second, the second of the three is the person who was wealthy Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him wealth. Again, a Muslim please understand the hadith of solace refers to Muslims, not to Hindus, not to Christians, not to six, not to atheists, it refers to Muslims, the first man to be thrown into the Hellfire, according to Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam will be a scholar of Islam please understand this. Don't think that we have some kind of, you know, right off that everything or everyone else will go into the Hellfire only we go into Jannah no such thing. Allah subhanho wa Taala accepts if Allah accepts we go if he doesn't have to, we don't go second person to go into the
Hellfire, another Muslim who is that Muslim, the man who was wealthy and who spent his wealth on philanthropic work, who spent his wealth in good stuff, who spent his wealth helping the poor, who spent his wealth building massages and mosques and building mothers and jamea, who spent his wealth in all kinds of good activities. On the day of judgment, he will be called before Allah subhanho wa Taala it will be asked what did you do? The man will say Allah, you gave me wealth and I spent it all in your path, I did this and this and this, the man will be told you are a liar.
You spend his wealth so that you will be known as a philanthropic man, you spend his wealth so that you will be known that you are such a great person and so generous. All this happened. This honor was given to you in the dunya here there is nothing for you and this person will be thrown into the hellfire.
The third person who will come before Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Saudis of solace is a person who fought for at for Islam who fought in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He went in Jihad visa v de la the man went in war for Islam for the sake of Islam. He went and fought in this war and he died in this war. He died Shaheed feasability law,
this man will be produced before Allah subhanho wa Taala and the man will be asked, What did you do the man will say Allah, I gave my life for you.
I gave my life for you. I died in your path. It will be said to him, You are a liar.
You are a liar because you went and fought so that you will be known as a brave man. You went and fought so that you will be known as a great warrior. This happened people were singing your praises here, there is nothing for you and He will be thrown into the hellfire.
My sister's time to get off our phones and stop relaxing. And then to wake up and time to make Toba and time to make u turns and time to ensure that our Deen is acceptable to Allah, that there is actual sincerity in our hearts that what we do good is for the pleasure of Allah subhana wa
I've said this to you many, many, many times before and I'm saying it to you again, Islam spread by the winning of hearts, not by the meaning of arguments. Islam did not spread by the sword or the gun or the stick Islam spread because people saw Muslims and they liked what they saw.
Islam spread because Muslims, people dealt with Muslims, they did business with Muslims, and they were very happy with how that business happened. Islam spread because people dealt with Muslims, they live with Muslims and they liked how Muslims lived. So they came and they said, The Your life is very beautiful. I want Please tell me about it. And Allah subhanaw taala opened the doors, Islam did not we did not spread by people fighting wars by people being nasty by people not by not being concerned about society. Islam has always spread from Muslims who are a small minority in countries right from the from the time of asylum, right from the Macan period, the Muslims were a small
minority in a pluralistic multicultural, multi religious society, majority of whom were people who are not Muslim.
But in one generation, that entire thing changed without anyone's without any killings, without any arguments, without any debates, without any anything just by Muslims being Muslims.
And that is what we need to remember that one day a day will come when our door of this life will be shut. And then we will be asked, we will not be asked what did you know? We will be asked what did you do? We will not be asked what did you have? We will be asked what did you do?
We will not be asked Who were you? We will be asked what did you do?
The only thing that will matter is what we did, was it done sincerely for the pleasure of Allah? was it done correctly according to the Sharia? was it done only and only
for the purpose of pleasing Allah subhanaw taala
my brothers and sisters I remind myself when you let us not waste that time, Allah subhanaw taala said to us, that death comes to everyone, even to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa savasana. And he said,
mama kaliba TV follow you
for watching sayaji
kyren Elijah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is no more than a messenger. And indeed, many messengers have passed away before him. If he dies or is killed, will you then turn back on your heels as disbelievers and he returns back on his heels. Not the least harm will he do to Allah and Allah will give reward to those who are grateful. Allah subhanaw taala told us also that no one dies except with Allah subhanho wa Taala has permission and except his will. No one dies before his time No one leaves after his time. Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah

Mina wasana, Josie shaqiri Allison, and no person can die except by Allah subhanho wa Taala has permission and at an appointed time, and who ever dies a reward in this whoever desires the reward in this one, we will give him that reward and whoever desires the reward in the hereafter in the afra we will give him that reward and we will reward the Grateful about the baklava and those who died there on the subsequent allegations of the munafo that they wouldn't have died if they hadn't gone there. Allah subhanho wa Taala said the following. The Moroccan said they said you died because you went if you are not gone you wouldn't have died you would have lived would
have been saved. Allah subhanaw taala revealed the Quran
and Allah subhanaw taala said
Yasha Minh como en cada
una de la la la la ke
Colin Allah Morocco
Hello, Tom v Bo t calm
Are you him?
v v that is sudo. Allah said then after the distress and this refers to the time when the tide of battle was turned against the Muslims in the baklava Alexander after the distress, he Jalla Jalla, who sent down security for you slumber overtook a party of you, while another party was thinking about themselves, about how to save themselves and ignoring the others and the prophets, Allah Selim, and thought wrongly about Allah, the sort of ignorance they said, had we any part in the affair, say you Omar masala Salaam say to them, indeed, the affair belongs only to Allah.
They hide within themselves, what they are not revealed to you saying, if we had anything to do with this aware, none of us would have been killed here, say to them, even if you had remained in your homes, those for whom death was decreed would certainly have gone forth to the place of their death, but that Allah subhanaw taala by test what is in your breasts, and to them is that which was in your hearts, the sins and Allah subhanaw taala is all Knower of what is in your breasts. Allah subhanaw taala said that those who deny this and continue to say, If only we had not gone on or done such and such, thereby denying the inevitability of death, Allah will cause that to become a source of never
ending regret and pain in his heart, how true this is how many times this happens to us, that somebody dies one of our near and dear ones, and this thing shagun puts in your head, Oh, if only he had not gone there, if only this had not happened, you will live with that pain till the end of your days. Because there is no solution to that pain. There is no solution to that pain, there is no solution to it only. Whereas what is the solution? solution is Allah subhanaw taala said that death was decreed in that place by Allah, accept it, become go become at peace with it, and Alhamdulillah Your heart will be addressed. Don't accept it. Keep on in this loop, and you will not rest in the
day you die. You will live with that pain forever as well as he was from Allah hamdulillah. We have seen cases like this happening in our own budget, our own children have died.
Our own children have died. And the thought does come into the mind. The thought came into my mind also.
The thought came into my mind also
with respect to one of them.
I didn't say to his father others but I said to myself, I said I wish he hadn't gone to such a place until I reminded myself I said well I this is from Allah subhanaw taala the boy died a chaise visa will insha Allah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give him Jonathan for those who are ready.
And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give peace of mind to his parents. I am witness that his father never spoke a word against that. Never.
Never did one word
of complaints about the death of his son. Come on the tongue of that father.
I will be witness for him inshallah, on the day of judgment that he never complained about the death of his son. It's not easier.
It's not easy. May Allah protect your children inshallah, it is not easy to lose a son at that age. But Allah gave them give him some or give the father the mother give the given masala give the grandparents and the uncle and so on. All of our dear dear brothers and friends of ours, Allah subhanaw taala give them some and not a single word of complete layover here May Allah bless them and guide them and strengthen which Allah
so Allah smart Allah said this thing that don't keep saying this because the pain will never end.
My brother and sister how much of comfort there is to accept the will of Allah subhanaw taala Allah will we accept the will of Allah, we accept the kadavu Allah, not only do we accept the decree of Allah, we are pleased with the decree of Allah
Alhamdulillah May Allah give us all this, this ability to accept His will and to be pleased with his will in our hearts inshallah. And then Allah subhana wa tada said,
Yeah, you are levina Manohla taco. No calorie Raghava
you meet wala hobbema
Allah subhanaw taala said, Oh believe Do not be like those who does believe the hypocrites and who say to their brother and when they travel through the earth or go out to fight, if they had stayed with us they would not have died or not they would not have been killed. So that Allah make it a cause of regret in the hearts. It is Allah subhanho wa Taala who gives life and who causes death allow you he will you meet, and Allah is all of what you do. Finally, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about the last moments of our lives. As life ebbs away as life leaves us
up pain in sort of the lockup, Allah subhanaw taala said then why do you not intervene when the soul of a dying person reaches the throat? And you at that moment are standing there looking on? But we Allah subhanaw taala is referring to himself, he says, We are nearer to him than you, but you do not see us carambola human unless rather than said then why do you not? If you are exempt from reckoning and recompense punishment, why do you not bring back the soul to the body, if you are truthful? We like to live in this world. As if we have power. As if we have control. We stand up in opposition to Allah. We stand up in rebellion to Allah, we stand up against what Allah subhanaw taala has told us
to do. Allah smarter, saying you think you are so strong, then return the soul to the body, when the body when the soul is leaving? How many of us have actually been witness to this? How many of us have stood by seeing our loved near and dear ones dying before our eyes? How many of us would have been would have loved to do that, if we could return the soul, which one of us would have said let him die? Not one of us, we would have done it if he would have done it. What do you know and I know once Allah subhanaw taala decree has come, once molecule mouth has arrived. Once the soul extraction has started, there is no power on the face of the earth. There is no power of Science and
Technology. There is no power of mankind, which can return that soul to that body.
Or which can stop that extraction of that soul. No matter how long it takes, no matter how painful it might be, or no matter how peaceful it might seem to be. That peacefulness and the painfulness is not for us to see that peacefulness once molecule mouth has come and the curtain is lifted, whether the death is peaceful or not, we will not know the soul will know that person will know because that person will be seeing things that are not visible to our eyes. That person will be aware of realities that are still in the hidden that are still in the unknown as far as we are concerned.
My brothers sisters, I want to
say to you that truly the most helpless time for a human being that can exist is the time of death,
both for the one dying, as well as for those who are looking on who may be ready to do anything to return the soul to the body but a completely helpless. Allah subhanaw taala reminds us at this moment that this moment will come to every one of us.
I remind myself I ask myself this question and I request you to ask yourself this question each and every one of you. What is your preparation for that time?
The time will come and we don't know when it will come. There is no time they'll it we cannot say it will come after so and so after so many days, months years. We don't know this, the young die before the old, the old die before the young.
All we can say with certainty is that the time will come question is what is our preparation for that time?
My dear brother sisters,
we will continue with the whole bandula there is lots to talk about that even before we come to the issue of the questions because before
Welcome to the show the questions I want to try to explain to you from the Quran and Sunnah what actually happens at the time of death and what happens immediately thereafter, so that we are mentally prepared for it.
Because this time is going to come for Come on all of us. ask Allah subhanaw taala to be pleased with you. Ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to enable all of us to live a life which will have a good ending for us. ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us the courage and to give us the ability to turn towards him before it is too late. ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our hearts to Islam and to open our hearts to change our lives in such a way that we Muslims become a source of goodness for everyone who lives around us that we Muslims are seen as a source of goodness by everyone who lives around us today a great tragedy is that this is the opposite Illa Mashallah there are people who are
individually seen as as a benefit but generally we are this is not our impression the world does not see the Muslims as a blessing. The world sees the Muslims as something to be to be afraid of, or Muslims or something which are who are a source of problem for them. This is not the case is not because of Islam. This is because of ourselves. This is not because of Islam. This is because we have left Islam and it's not because of Islam. This is because we don't follow Islam. This is not because of Mohammed Salah Salah it is because we don't follow Mama selasa asked Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to do that which is pleasing to Him and to be pleased with us and to enable us to live
according to the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and according to His life was Allah Allah Allah will Karim Allah Allah He was made by Rama Rama Rama
