to attend with the slim
woman tibia on the sun in either humid in Subhan Allah, Allah Allah Allah Allah Tala in Atlanta Lollywood Hakeem will be shocked in so many ways silly determination as to who Kohli was that I'm gonna harness on getting me up from unlike me and I praise Allah Almighty and I send prayers and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is noble family righteous companions and all those that follow them with the right guidance until the Day of Judgment
very busy or law knowledge that we accept that what you have taught us Indeed you are the ongoing the online. We asked the most pinata Allah to bless this gathering to make it sincere for his sake. And to increase us in knowledge of the Quran and implementation of it in our lives in sha Allah to make it an argument for it to not against us, brothers and sisters, we continue to stick with
it. And I believe last time we went through about three verses the first three verses
and we'll continue today in sha Allah Now we'll be learning in a shape on one gene Bismillah.
zhiban was sweet,
deal, what either Foods was the winner just want
that to be a
routine, well enough social for no Sheila.
moved to Iowa
when the sun is wrapped up, I want to start fall dispersing and when the mountains are removed, and when full term she candles are neglected. And when the wild beasts are gathered, and when the seas are filled with flame, and so on. In last time, we spoke about verse three and when the mountains are removed, and we said that this is
basically telling us that the mountains themselves will be completely dislodged from their place, there will be no mountain anymore, there will be scattered, they'll be destroyed, they'll be smashed into scattered nuts. Right? And
it will be like a mirage because there will no longer be a mountain there. Even though just one instance ago there was a huge
mass of rock called this mountain, which suddenly disappeared. What is elgiva therefore, they have been removed from their place. And they will be moving in a new form not necessarily
as a mountain. But after they are scattered into dust, they will be blown away by the winds within three years and when the mountains are removed. And even before that we spoke of course about the shrimps and in the Doom.
These amazing phenomena that occur on the Day of Judgment,
which we said also
does tell us some of the truth about some of the phenomena that occur in stars also, today. Either way, all of these celestial bodies that you have come to know and love will be destroyed and will no longer function, the way that you have come to love the sun that has been shining on us. For 1000s and maybe millions or billions of years, this sun will no longer be able to shine, it will no longer be able to sustain life on this earth and the style with which Allah subhanaw taala has decorated and beautifying the heavens right and the sky above us. These stars will fall. There's no longer any use for them. The stars are false, their lights will go out. They will no longer be these beautiful
stars that you and I are seeing in the sky. So all of these things
for all practical purposes have become something immutable and regular and habitual in our life such as the sun and the stars. On this day, all of it ceases to exist.
The stars, the sun, the stars
have these great big mountains.
And when full time she cannot, are neglected, we mentioned also last time, if you remember the opinion of laser and camera, the Alon that these first six verses that we're talking about
before the first low in the horn, right. So, it is at the end of this dunya. And before the second goal of the form before the resurrection, on the Day of Judgment,
if we look at it that way, what do you then
as is translated full term to be more specific, full term meaning that 10 months
while they are pregnant for their pregnancy, right, and this is why they are called the a shock coming from the word.
Right. So as 10 months
while they are pregnant, and they are almost about to give birth, they were these sharp is full term camels were the most valuable things to the Arabs at the time. So the extent that
if they were caring for camels at all times, once it becomes classified as a shock, because of pregnancy up to 10 months, and is about to give birth, and they're about to reap the benefits of growing this chic Hello, this is the time to take care of it as much as possible. They would never leave it especially when it becomes classified as Aisha. So Allah, Allah is telling us that even the most valuable possession to people will be neglected. And he gives the example of Elijah and the Arabs understood this
ruthless and when full term Sheikh was unelected, will there be a similar?
Let us say, attention, will there be similar attention given to Allah Sha?
Allah Allah, you know about the Hadith, the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, where he spoke about the end of time where there will be battles and fighting back with swords, right, that will be some of the primitive tools of war and battles from long ago,
and scholars trying to explain that in different ways. Some may, maybe, maybe there will be, you know, such a cataclysmic World War that will destroy everything and with basically bombers back to the Stone age's. And people's tools will again be primitive Allah, Allah, Allah, weather
it will be the case with elevation, also on the Day of Judgment, Allahu taala.
At the same time,
the meaning is perfectly clear, the most valuable possessions and now you can apply that to yourself and to everyone around you. And to this day and age. What is most valuable to people today?
this is money also, right? But can you give me specifics?
expensive jewelry, maybe real estate, right?
All types of wealth, all kinds of land, whatever it may be. All of these things that people are so connected to, and are always giving them time. On the Day of Judgment, they could care less than not even look at that, right? For all practical purposes. As we sit on the Day of Judgment, as all people are standing naked before one another. Nobody cares.
No one has time to look this there's something much more serious going on.
So again, according to of Avon calm, this is at the end of the dunya people will be in their stores, on their shopping areas and so on. Some people will be busy with the HR because once the these occurrences begin, no one will look at anything.
I mean, you can think of something that is much smaller on a smaller scale here in the dunya. If there's an earthquake right now, I think all of you will start running out the door you could care less if I'm talking
less than or going on. The machines is about to fall, people are gonna be running out.
The most valuable possessions are neglected. And this is similar to the verses that we just studied in the end of sorts, where they couldn't easily mean him
And this is what?
nearing the time of accountability, but it gives you that meaning also the most valuable of your family members, you will also neglect and turn your back on what even
claims that this is a metaphor, it may not necessarily be
referring specifically to a shot, it's a metaphor against the value, the most valuable possessions will be neglected. His argument is based on the fact that this these occurrences are after the second law of the horn, where there's going to be accountability and at that point there is no
right this is his argument. So, if that is the case, then it must be a metaphor, but if we take the opinion of leaving card, this is the end of time that
still exists. So this might also be the case. But
it and when the wild beasts are gathered, again, we'll
try to understand this again in the framework of being before
the Day of Judgment, before
everything dies or is eliminated. And also afterwards,
it will make sense in some way that one of the opinions and they're all fairly similar one of the opinions is on the authority
on the authority of seventh through agreement, he says about what is that what social
meaning the hash of that applies to animals, okay, and the beasts that are being mentioned, this hashtag is for all practical purposes then
Amy, no to
bringing and gathering all of the animals and everything other than gin and humanity is essentially
no one is going to stay alive except
as genuine, they are the ones that are going to be made to stand before Allah subhanaw taala for the accountability, will they even come up as mentioned in the earlier narration that we mentioned that he says it is meaning the they they're mingling amongst each other or mixing amongst each other, because they are all being
let us say lead towards a certain location, which is the location of a hashtag. So, they are all being led and they are mixing amongst one another and also obviously, with the human beings because they will all be brought on the land of hashes
in the month of
June, meaning that they will all be collected and these meanings are all fairly similar, that the wild beasts will all be gathered, okay. Now, of course, they will write, in the opinion of
they will all die all the animals will be made to die because animals do not have parasites or Hellfire for the simple reason that they are not held accountable. Right. So then when they ask Weldon in that case, why are they gathered?
Why the hash of
Well, you then will social socio. So these animals, and specifically he mentioned
the host meaning what? Now, in the column? Arabic When you say what you're talking about?
in the common area?
You're not talking about business solely talking about monsters.
But the meaning of who's here are the wild beasts.
one of the meanings that we get from this,
even if it is at the end of this dunya
is that these wild? This is we cannot live with.
Right? We cannot live with the ones that we can live with other tame animals, the cats and dogs, the rabbits and so on. Of course the dogs you should not be having inside your house, right? That's prohibited, however, and what
can we be living with lions and tigers and wolves and others such as these wild beasts are usually right.
They're not living with us. They're not gathered
on the danger
because it will not matter. All will be gathered together human beings animal.
All together, the thing that usually
separated before was a matter of fear, or an incompatibility on the
They're all gathered together. In fact, all are gathered together for the accountability, the animals will be made to die, and Jen and humanity will be held accountable. And then it's either one of two avoids paradise or hellfire, what is social?
And when the seas are filled with flame, and this is one of the meanings that the translators are mentioning,
and then what they have sowed, the seeds are filled
with slim. Now, you didn't ask me for the second part. So you have to keep me on my toes. The second part, what is the social
meaning after the blow of the horn? For the title of accountability? What about that? Right? That makes it a little bit more clear. Indeed, Allah subhanaw taala will gather the animals right, as Prophet says in the authentic hadith, all of the animals will be gathered, Allah subhanaw taala. This is the answer to the question. The hashtag is in order to displays in justice, that even the animals will love me as a counselor, and will not be punished eternally in paradise. But to display is Ultimate and infinite justice, even as an animal and other animals,
Allah subhanaw taala will indeed give back the rights of that animal, so that Allah subhanaw taala will take the rights from the strong and give it to the weak, the animals who have been wronged the ones the unborn animals, right, that was beaten by the horned animal, Allah subhanaw taala will also judge between them, imagine that and then they will be made to the right, then they will die. But before that,
Justice must be done even between those animals.
It is to that level we're talking about
in Allah Allah.
Allah does no injustice even worse. And I know for a fact that the shaper
is going to many of our minds
even practicing and trying to play with their minds and say,
is your God really just a fuse just been? Why is he punishing people eternally? Has this idea ever come to your mind? I'm sure. A lot of panelists said
that Allah subhanaw taala is not one,
In other words, Allah azza wa jal would never do injustice, and Allah will not do injustice, not even an atom's word,
to anyone to his slave servants, to the animals to all of his creatures. So even the animals, Allah subhanaw taala will bring about justice, and then they will be made to the social, for sure, yes.
I mentioned at the time, that indeed, the
believer when he sees that the animals are made into dust, he wishes to be the same, because he wishes that he will not be held accountable. I mean, you can imagine,
here they are standing now looking at hellfire, knowing for certain that they are going to enter it as Allah, Allah says
that they will enter it. He's wishing to himself, only I can be like them, is probably carrying himself or herself apart. If I can be one of these animals, or this turned into dust and it's over.
It's not like that eternal punishment. So absolutely. Right. The believer when he sees this, or she sees that she will indeed wish that she was an animal or he was wish that he was an animal so that he would not be held accountable. Yes.
To nothing sort of the number of I don't know if you were there, I mentioned the saying of Abu Bakr and the same
thing of some of the other companions one said I wish I couldn't be a bird the other side I wish I could be
the the the the, the the sauce in some kind of a dinner where people will just eat me and Allah, Allah Allah hold me accountable and other similar expressions
Allah subhanaw taala help us on the Day of Judgment
opinion about what this expression means is indeed what is mentioned in the translation and that is that when the seas are filled with flame, and there are three possible opinions, even from the if you look at a few dissect the word linguistically what how
when the seas are
filled with slang
or surgery, indeed means to burn or burn with a flame, and hence the Arabic word for something that inshallah none of us do. And that is smoking. Right? What is it called?
What is the what is what is what do people smoke?
Finger? Right? And that's why now, everybody's got
the same cover from burning or a flame, right? Why then the house
seas are filled and burnt with flame.
Now, in the past,
may be less than the other it
was a little bit difficult to understand. See filled with flame.
It seems contradictory, right? Water puts out fire, how can you fire inside the water?
It seems like it doesn't make sense. Now. One may say Well,
speaking of judgment, so we know that the laws of physics will fail and be rendered non functional, as we have discussed before, so water and fire.
But what about the other I will
by the sea, which is less new, which is almost like burning wood flame.
That's an interesting one. Now, some of the scholars have
different opinions about what
is swearing by things that are available now. Right?
Such as more and the success for all of this exists now. So it's not necessarily on the day of judgment, and Allah is calling the
a sea full of flame. It's rather difficult to understand. And obviously
from that perspective, from the perspective of the meaning we're discussing
here, which is flame, or burning with flame.
It may seem confusing, the other meanings are perfectly acceptable, and we'll get to that. But Miss jewel. This is where the scientific miracle comes about.
When the scholars discovered that, indeed,
it inside the oceans in the in the depths of the oceans exists, fire, burning fire
erupts in the form of volcanoes inside the seas. Imagine that. Volcanoes my brothers and sisters are not only on the land,
there are huge and long ridges of volcanoes under the seas in the depths of the seas. You can see volcanoes bursting
and flowing out there inside the scenes of how cannula label so those are those 14 centers ago to tell us that there is fire inside the ocean. There's fire inside the
tunnels 100 call it was.
Absolutely. In fact,
you may even find that volcanic activity indices are great.
And many of the islands including Hawaii and other islands were formed enough
like these volcanoes erupting in the sea and then throwing out all of this lava, and then this
piece of land formed on top of the ocean. This is because and that's why there's what volcanic activity in such islands will do.
So, if we can understand this dunya, what's difficult to understand about it, even in an era, when all of these laws no longer become functional, what is it we have to do so in a way,
we know that the seas are on fire, in their depth. Now,
on the Day of Judgment,
they will literally be on fire everywhere will love the house, meaning flames, the sea itself will be enslaved
only in this deck. But even on top on the surface, you will see fire and flames. Basically, the oceans and the seas are erupting. With fire. Imagine that just one day when you're out looking at the beautiful ocean and enjoying the scenery. Pick yourself for a few seconds to the day of judgment and think that this whole ocean in front of us suddenly starts with erupt and fire. It's scary. Well Allah, Allah azza wa jal protects us.
So this is one of the meanings regarding this
on the authority of
a man, a Jewish man, where is Jana?
The Jew said
the sea is basically saying that Johanna is
on or at the sea,
probably Allah on
I can say nothing other than that he is indeed truthful. And he caught the IOL
whatever we have suggests, now
concerning the narration, the narration seems to be correct. According to the
rules of an imam Muslim,
the chain of narration seems to be authentic.
and even recently,
specify the location of paradise or other health
bills, the location of Paradise is fairly clear.
From the heavens, it's among the highest heaven, right? And we know that is immediately under the Throne of Allah. Right. And this is why last
right, when he mentioned
and then he said,
Jana is where the cigarettes and similar to the last tree of the furthest boundary, right, the furthest boundary, obviously, the seventh heaven. And
so we know the Paradise is this, this is what's closer, but specifying the location of hellfire most popularly, has not specified this location because in these, the evidence is fairly scarce. But at the same time, I did not want to hide this thing of value, which seems to be also authentic. And where he is saying that Hellfire is
maybe he doesn't necessarily mean now in the dunya because we know that Hellfire will be close to paradise on this document, right? Because you'll have to go over Hellfire in order to enter Paradise, so they're gonna be close to each other. Right?
There therefore, maybe the meaning is that on the Day of Judgment, indeed, Allah subhanaw taala will look at Hellfire above the ocean or the seas. Allah Allah Allah exactly what is meant by that. But at the same time, we know also from the authentic Hadith of Prophet Muhammad wa salam, that the throne of Shavon.
Right is when
is above the sea, right.
It's above the sea, as Prophet Muhammad
said, and that that is whether she calls
he's his soldiers and his followers, and so on in order to see and get a progress report.
on how they're doing, destroying the earth,
dissuading people from the religion. So, the lions
will do what it will be How so, that these verses show that indeed the sea is filled with flame or burning with flame. And
this is the answer on the Jew about Jana. This is one of the opinions
opinion the other meanings, and also unacceptable meaning, which was mentioned also by many of the seller is that means
In other words, the when the seas will be how soon as
they start to overflow, right, the water becomes so abundant that they start to overflow. It's almost as if all of the water on earth comes together and the oceans become one, one body of water and it starts to overflow. Okay? And this is indeed also possible.
On the authority of Imam Qatada,
he says what is the house
it is the opposite meanings. Remember, in in older times, we spoke about some of the words in Arabic that give you opposite meanings.
You remember that? And the examples might be a little bit difficult. Ah, speaking of which one reminds me. You guys are asleep today was the homework.
Anyone did the homework. Anyone tried to do the homework? I
forgot what is the homework in the first place?
About the I believe it's was when I come Will
dimension of schedule and Khufu.
But no answers.
So some of the words will give you opposite meanings, right. And this seems to be one of them. One of the opinions, as we said, is that the water will overflow, right? There'll be an inordinate amount of water, and it will be so abundant that it will overflow. The opening of Imam Qatada is the third opinion which is that all of the water will be removed.
It will all
And he says there will not be a drop less?
How can we start to understand that? That is also
probably the area of
we're saying this. And by the way, scientifically, they talk about the oceans disappearing. Right? Remember when we talk about when we talked about the sun, it's predicted fate after 5 billion years.
Scientists have today say that after 5 billion years after the sun goes through the Red Giant phase and is expanding. And eventually, the heat increases. As the sun is getting larger, right and therefore closer to the earth, the earth will become so hot, that all of the water in the oceans will evaporate.
This is not
all of the water in the oceans will evaporate because of the extra
can this be related to what we have.
And then all of the water disappearing, which is the opinion of
Subhanak yellow. Now, one way to
combine these different these three opinions about what that means is the following.
earthquakes happen on the Day of Judgment, all of the laws are to fail. Oceans combined with one another, and they blend all of the water becomes one huge body of water, the water starts to overflow. And then Allah subhanaw taala causes the fire
to erupt in this body of water, and the water slowly starts to evaporate and disappearance. So it all makes sense. It's just a matter of looking at it chronologically, right? And this is a possibility, I guess.
it's a possibility. It's a logical possibility of how all of the three opinions of the meaning of Suniva and you asked me where's
Similar to the issues due to the issue of the you know the issue
the different meanings of halacha? No. Okay, ask me about it later. I don't want to go on another tangent. But the point is, Sanjay is giving us these three meanings. And all of them can indeed be logical and probable, in terms of the fate of the season, the oceans on the Day of Judgment, the flames, the abundance and the overflowing, and finally, its disappearance What
What even new foo? Foo, which? And when the souls are parents,
what does this mean?
The famous and popular opinion is the following.
And no force here.
And that's why they mentioned I believe, the
forces who waited right.
Meaning and now we know
we know what is enough and we know what is a new force. Zoo is
usually in the Arabic language, when we talk about those.
Immediately you might think of husband and wife, but at the same time you think of pair
means to pair, right.
That was your anything is to including of human beings. What is the new foo?
The popular opinion is that all
similar things, or similar people, in terms of the deal will be paired together on the day of judgment.
And this is similar to
the saying of Allah subhanaw taala, for sure. leadin available, as well.
If you go to that verse in Surah,
PAGE 623 23.
Or rather, sorry, 621 621, the beginning of Surah
the angels will be ordered, gathered those who committed wrong, there's kinds and what they used to worship, right now, if someone read Arabic and doesn't know what is the meaning, they're gonna flip, because they're gonna read.
Right? gathered the ones who have done wrong and their wives
or their husbands. So if someone is doing well, but their husband or wife isn't, and they think I'm gonna be paired with them, they're gonna freak and you're gonna ask for the words, right? This is not what is meant. And if we were to understand that words that way, then we will say ESEA, who was one of the greatest women of this world is going to
His words, meaning that like, right, Gods are the ones who have committed wrong, they're kind. They're like, the ones who who did similar deeds.
What they used to worship, honestly, what they used to worship besides Allah,
as long as what they used to worship, or not also
only have a loss, right? Otherwise, someone will say that misery Salah is also going to be gathered with them.
So they're worshiping? No, that's a different issue. And the verse MBR
clarifies that issue and that's another tangent, I can go on now.
It could be, it could be that
the other verse also one could say
that we have created pairs of everything right.
It could be that these are not necessarily obviously male and female.
Okay, the night and the day, the sun and the moon, the land and see males and females also and similar things exactly, Allah, Allah
subhanaw taala, who has created everything in these pairs? So, what is the new Fuzu zoo and when the souls are paired, this is the way
many scholars understood this.
Meaning that it is the souls that have put forth similar deeds in this dunya they will be paired on the day of
judgment and this is the opinion also of
poverty. And this is why
a normal machine says that he heard probably a loved one
while he was giving us
and then he cited the verse
as wage and salary,
that you are three, let's say, pairs or groups or categories. Okay? Well, as we're done,
that he mentioned that people have the right, the competitors have the right, the competitors of the left.
Right, those who are way ahead of us.
Then he mentioned the Iowa even new foods.
So this is the way he is explaining it. These are the likes. So the categories on the judgments as well as
the people of the rights are brought together with the people on the right, right, people who were
on a fairly similar standing in terms of their worship, their piety, and so on. And similarly, with the Sunday for those who are way ahead, they're also brought together and of course,
the companions of the left with the disbelievers and the sinners and all those that are similar to them.
Who Sue Fuzu zoo, upon mentioning what even
the same Hadith, he says, as well,
as wasn't enough.
In other words, pairs that will be in paradise and pairs that will be in hellfire, my brother, my dear sister, keep this in mind. Now in the dunya Who would you like to be paired with on the Day of Judgment. So if you love being around
the disbelievers the sinners like to be in the place of sin, God forbid, this is where a person will be resurrected.
Be around be a companion to the good doers be a companion to the scholar be a companion to the ones who fear Allah subhanaw taala be a companion to be obedient to Allah Allah, Allah will put us with them. Otherwise Allah is going to pair the one that he has altogether. No, they will be classified, they will slowly be classified and separated the people in one corner, you are the fornicators you stay together, you are the people of river, you stay together, you are the people.
Maybe all the disbelievers together, you are the people of this you are the people of all coming together, being paired. These are just thoughts on the tyrants you were helping the tyrants and you were winning them and you were
good giving them all kinds of excuses. Maybe you'll be with the tired from the day of judgment
be careful where you want to be a lot of those bring all the like minded people and the ones will be similar these years, they will pair them in what even for so
the other meaning
pairing the souls with their bodies
the souls with their respective bodies and this is probably the opinion that is more popular amongst people that this is what is the meaning of what we just put out on a scholarly level the first opinions the more popular right.
But they're both possible way the new fossils zoo with
the souls with the bodies that they inhabited here in this dunya this is basically the resurrection right? This is bringing back the soul to the body after they had been separated
right, what is the foo zone
and from here on brothers and sisters according to obey them,
this is the second stage this is after the blow of the second one right? In other words,
why then of course is always appearing the the the accountability which is coming, as we'll see from here on
this is the second after the second law of the horn.
And when the girl who was very aligned this
the A's and means for what sin she was killed Allah Allah
one of the most egregious things
that the Arabs use to commit.
Not only the Arabs, many others also look specifically a lot of Allah here Allah, essentially, the Arabs and those who do similar things. And this is what they used to do. What is in order to simulate? Can you imagine burning a child alive?
Can you imagine burn your child alive? Can you imagine a mother giving birth?
into a disposal
and throw it away? Allah.
If we save this as this happened centuries ago,
it's somewhat acceptable. If you say it's still happening now.
Inconceivable. This is happening even today. Yes, to a certain extent,
and are discussing what is included in the past, this is what they used to do. They would take their daughters, the female girl, they would take her out into the desert, they would dig a hole, put her in the hole and bury her back. Well, imagine this, for what reason? Why?
Because they felt that females were inferior.
females were going to be a financial burden
in the future, if they're not going to be able to work and to help
and so on. What do you do with this female, it's just a financial emergency. Some very, very young,
as early as possible. If they had an abortion at the time, they probably would have had also millions of abortions, but as they say, after the girl was warm, and of course they didn't know the sex of the the baby after knowing what gender it is knowing a female, thicker, very
Maybe it's a beautiful female child. They would very this is what it's called.
they used to do this so often, to the extent that Allah Allah also mentioned is in the other is what is the Bucha.
Swindon who are coming
right, let's go to those verses quickly. So let's go to solid.
Again, so we can widen our our exposure and understanding of the Quran, verse 361,
On the top of the page, verse 58, and when one of them is informed of the birth of a female is face because dark room was Swindon, and he suppresses.
He hides himself from the people because of the ill of what he have which he has been informed, can you imagine, he's so humiliated, that he got a girl, he doesn't know what to do? Surely keep it in humiliation,
or bury it in the ground.
Unquestionably evil is what they decide.
This my brothers and sisters, we go back to the issue of the Quran,
literally being a social revolution,
calling on these types of morals in that type of an environment.
And indeed, it is still happening today. female infanticide even today, then you go back to the Quran and you say 14 centers of the Quran Subhanallah was this throwing this misconception, this stereotype, right? This
female injustice, they were doing injustice to the females, right? Even at the time of Prophet Muhammad. Indeed, the female has no status.
In pre Islamic Arabia,
the female was like, was probably the largest, like females of the west or the East today that do not enjoy the freedom that Islam has given them.
Largely in prisons and without freedom. Because they were just objects,
quote unquote, sexual objects.
Just regular objects they do what they please to the extent that some of the
When when a father was dying, this child would marry his mother consists of a loss for babies. Well, thank you for
Therefore Allah subhanaw taala for bases and prohibited This severely, the females did not have financial rights. This is even obviously have the right to live as we see, marriage was basically something of place, and therefore, the different types of marriage that Islam prohibited as we know.
It is slandered give the female its rights. So those
people have today convinced you that Islam is the one who has
somehow wrong, females are done injustice is done that
gave them freedom, that gave them important to give them weight and give them status in the community. Nothing, not nothing of that existed then. The idea was the female is inferior and a financial burden. And if I can bury her alive when she's young,
it's easier to do it when she's younger than to do it when she's a little bit older. And believe it or not, the infanticide that occurs today
is not only when they are infants,
there there is infanticide. There's killing of children, even when they go past their first year,
up to the fourth year.
How can you kill a child was rich three or four years old? This is the ultimate
sacrifice going on today. In the 21st century, in the title of civilization, they just
keep going on they keep going on and on about civilization and the levels that we have reached. We're talking about infanticide. In the 1000s, My dear brothers and sisters all over the world, including
developing countries, right? Countries that are far away from civilization or they are poor or in the jungles of Africa. No, no in the West. In the civilized West.
Infanticide is occurring in some of the age groups the US is number one.
In terms of the race of infanticide that occurs, imagine that how does it happen? Not necessarily as well. But it's still infanticide. The Quran is prohibiting
prohibiting This, of course, he is prohibiting all forms of infanticide, the killing of infants or children. And for what reason?
Allah, Allah tells us in the Quran, do not kill your children out of fear of poverty,
in two different verses out of fear of poverty for them, nor because of your own poverty, because you cannot spend on right, Allah, Allah forbid this, specifically the killing of children. And he is specifically mentioning that there will be asked on the Day of Judgment For what sin will you kill?
What is your sin? What grave sin did you commit,
that your parents decided to kill you? Some
of this is probably something that is so
disastrous and difficult, and requires a heart like a rock, right?
The heart so harsh, and without compassion, that the parents can kill their child, it must be the father who's doing this.
It's not only the Father. In fact, according to modern statistics, usually the mother is the one who's killing her child.
Look at the level of civilization that we have reached
a mother killing her child how boring No, that's difficult nowadays.
Unless it happened, and nobody found out that it's very possible, but usually by strangulation, the strangled their child to death
in very soon after they are born
and they will die, they'll not be able to breathe anymore and all the other excuse me sick forms of killing that mothers used to kill their children in the West, in other places
in the east, also in China, in India, in all of the different places
not to single out
any specific country, but because India is unique in this aspect that must be mentioned in in
the main reason
is probably, that they are looking to females as somewhat inferior. It's not that it is mainly the fact that they are a financial burden, because of a stupid, a disastrous and stupid and ludicrous concept
that they have in their tradition
that the female is the one who gives
the wife to the husband right. Now, in order to be fair, that may not necessarily be restricted to India,
because what is interesting to know
if you look it up in the dictionary is defined as the money or goods that is given by the wife to the husband
defined that way. So, it means it didn't, didn't only occur in India, it has historical basis, maybe maybe many other cultures, the woman is giving the dowry, or the wife is giving the dowry to the husband, right? And someone may come and say, Well, what is this? This is backwards, right? something small like this, like all of the other things people want to criticize about? This is something backwards, why should it be this way? Why should the man give the woman it's almost like you're giving her a price, right? That's why the the, the term for the dowry given from the husband to the wife to the bride price and the price of rice. So you're making females, you Muslims are
making females, like merchandise like you're buying.
At the time,
someone would have suggested something like this, they would have thought it's an innocent change of the law, we just make the dowry go in reverse from the female to the male.
If you told them at the time, that this is going to increase the rates of infanticide to an insane level, they say you're crazy. But this is precisely what's happening in India.
the man or the woman, the parents are already drowning in poverty.
And they already have two girls. And here comes a third Oh my god.
So I have to provide the dowry for the first two girls, right?
Some large amounts of money that I have to give them. And the problem is, since she's probably not going to work, right? So they're trying to solve it the wrong way, making the females work, right.
Exactly like the men. For all practical purposes, she's not going to work to provide the value. And here's the third girl,
get rid of her. The easiest solution, kill her.
If they're not
so harsh, and they're not able to kill her. They'll just not nourish her until she dies slowly. Right? This is the fact
that you'll find
in some Indian families, you'll find the male as well.
The female is not
all of this, Islam King 14 Centuries ago, Subhan, Allah to stop, to stop the insanity of infanticide, to stop the insanity of relegating the status of females to practically nothing, not even having the right to live much less. Many of the other rights of Islam has given her Islam keen to change all of this into private all of this and to give the female her due rights
as a human being
exactly like the man again, not or be careful not to confuse rights with
obligations or responsibilities. They're different rights. We're not making males and females identical. We're making them equal in their rights. Right? Yes, you have.
to come back
religious there's a religious belief that they will do that and they'll ask her to come back as a male in a later life. So it's, it's obvious who needs to be
communicated with about the status of females. It's definitely not Muslims. Muslims have given
women the rights from the time of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam the cases where other things happen
obviously are violations of
the Islamic law. We even know who that who.
And when the girl who was buried alive is right, she will be
put in for what sins she was killed.
And this is showing you the severity of the sin and of this act. And this is why
if the person who this was done to this being, not the criminal himself, does makes it seem even worse, right. It's showing the severity. And it is creating the fear in the hearts of the one who committed this crime, when this
beautiful female child is
For what sin were you killed, and the whole idea is that the criminal who perpetrated this crime should
have been put in there is a
that is shut. It is not that we do not recite, but it gives us another meaning.
And this is the narration that says what
And when the moku that
the cheer itself will ask
for what sin
she was killed or even been
put in it.
Again, we don't that's not a recitation that we can recite. Right? But it is, but we can possibly take that meaning.
On the authority of Omar,
he was asked about this verse what you didn't know all that to say. So he replied, that I
came to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And he said, O Messenger of Allah, I have performed what
I have varied several of my daughter's life into heylia.
So the salem said to him,
that you should free a slave for each of the girls that you married. So not only has Islam prohibited this matter, severely 14 Centuries ago, when it's still occurring now.
But Islam also placed on it.
And as far as I know, no other religion or way has gone that far. Islam has placed this expansion you have to free a slave
for each of the girls that you have.
So he said to him, O Messenger of Allah
seems that he is telling him I don't have slaves, he said, I have
a camel separate I have camels. So he says, slaughter one camel for each of the girls that you have.
And this is why my brothers and sisters, again, what we talked about is infanticide, right, which is still going on to a large extent in all different countries.
the highest level, right? In terms of sin, and in terms of crime, killing the child taking the life of the child, whether young or even after they get a little bit older, for whatever reason that may be all of it is prohibited. All right. Now,
let's go one step further to say the same about abortion. Because even though it is not what it is not necessarily very alive, it is still taking a life
taking the life of a child, that for all practical purposes would have lived as new allow them to live.
But you kill that child you took the life of that child and for all practical purposes, this is happening
when the child is alive,
unless they do it in a very very very early stage right.
Many scholars said four months but it may not necessarily be four months as we have discussed before I don't know if you remember that conversation. You remember that?
No, that's something else. I'm talking about the four months
many calls and
place the time was the route. The spirit is born.
According to the embryo at approximately four months, right 120 days, and this is based on the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad Salah where he says
that the embryo will grow in the first three stages, right? As a Nakba, and then Aloka, and then a mobile 14 days.
And we understood that each stage is taking 40 days, remember that? And we said, that's not the case.
What was the answer?
That all three stages, Allah, Allah Hafiz 14 days,
linguistically enlightened, it also makes sense linguistically, it's not only a matter of science, it's, it's a misunderstanding of the holidays, because of the linguistics. It's not the 40 days, 40 days and 40 days, all together, it is 40 days. And that's another long tangent we can go on. But the point is, that unless abortion happens very early, there's a good chance the room is already in the embryo and therefore you have taken the life of a child, you have killed a soul,
that Allah subhanaw taala has prohibited for you to kill. So abort. And this is why abortion is haram, my dear brothers and sisters, except in very rare and maybe individual cases that
we would mention in another gathering, not in this series, but the point is, it is haram. And it is also a form of killing, right, even though it hasn't gotten to the level of one, but it is almost almost like unfairly
getting rid of the innocent since an early before they come. And by the way, that I'm millions upon millions of abortions that are going on around the world. And some people who are comparing the graciousness of this crime. With this one may think to themselves, well, if I'm going to commit infanticide, I might as well committed early and abort the child before I give birth to the child because I am, I'm gonna kill the truck, so I might as well get rid of it. So some people probably look at the version positively, because they're looking at infanticide as something that is necessarily going to happen. But they're both prohibited what is alluded to so in the event,
you probably are thinking to yourself, because of the famous narration that's
he married his own daughter, but Allah, Allah, this is not confirmed. So bring your proof if you are indeed truthful.
If you know for a fact this is an authentic story, Bring your proof. As far as I know, it is not authentic, Allah Allah, Allah did not burn his daughter
what would that
be a patina For what sin
she was killed
to atom to slim and in the meantime.
Any questions or comments?
One thing let me mention one more thing.
see, Islam, the greatest and the beauty of Islam is that it not only
are Allah not only commands and prohibits, he gives you alternatives, right.
And in addition to the alternatives that are given,
Allah subhanaw taala may prohibit something
and give you an added incentive to avoid that prohibition and avoid that sin. So as much as Allah subhanaw taala has censured
those who perform what in this and the other is tell Muslims not to kill their children. Prophet Muhammad Al Salam gave you an added incentive. Right? Where he said in the authentic hadith, that whoever takes care of two girls, right, whoever takes care of two girls until they grow up and reach the age of puberty. They will come on the Day of Judgment. Me and him like this.
And he put up his two fingers in
A singer and his middle finger is saying
that whoever takes good care of two girls
until they grow up and reach the age of puberty, new will be was Prophet Muhammad Salah and sha Allah Antara life, like these two fingers.
So not only the need to give you an added incentive to take care of these girls take good care in the world, number one.
Number two, take care of them, show them affection,
take care of them in all different ways until they grow up and reach this age of puberty. And obviously, if they've gotten that far, you will continue with them in sha Allah. And for that you would deserve this. It's a simple task Subhanallah, please do it for the sake of Allah, right? If we do it, keeping this, in our mind, so many people are probably doing it, and maybe not thinking about this reward. But this is also an added incentive
to do this. Now, for us, it seems simple, but they're right, where a lot of people still have this idea. Still there in their mind, females are inferior, and maybe I shouldn't get rid of this female, Allah subhanaw taala prohibited it maybe they avoided it, but it was a little bit difficult right because this finally becomes ingrained. So this was an added incentive and it applies throughout
the display that
I mentioned like
sea ocean couldn't fire then the country has to come together and
on the on the water is operate
from the audience
actually the ocean flows
is for college seafloor spreading.
And it is all fractured. Right? It's like a tennis ball, you know?
It's like that and actually through the seafloor, the oceans are pulled apart. Exactly. And it may happen. So
due to coming up with the metaphor, which
you mentioned, it will be bad one right stop simple Island up.
Push so much. The continuance will come on back to the like it was in the earliest like Legend, early Pengie. hanging right? might come back like Yes. And so much heaven can protect all this. All this along this, all these
Right, right? Right? The brother is mentioning and his he's an expert on geology that has there's the phenomenon of what is called seafloor spreading, you have indeed,
these risks in the crust of the earth, and the oceans are going apart, the continents are going apart. And that it is predicted that at the end of time or after maybe 1000s or more millions of years, that the continents will come back and be pushed together as one piece of land as it was before. A name they got. They gave it was Pangaea, right? It was all just one piece. And the oceans were also all together as one buddy. This is this might be what will happen also at the end. Indeed, it might be the case. And it also might be in a different way that Allah subhanaw taala
decrees, but based on the opinions that we have given, it seems very much awful in line with the scientific predictions of what might happen to the earth and the oceans after many, many years.
And also the distinction
Yes. And that's where the magma comes. Right? So most of the fire is indeed coming through the oceans, right? Because the customer says
Definitely. Let's put it this way. In order to understand the issue better. That's why again, I say the popular opinion and the opinion of most scholars is that the location of the Hellfire is unseen and we don't quite know where it is. What we can tell is that Hellfire Willa Island is a lot larger than the earth
for simple reasons. Number one, that you can say 99.9% of the world's population
for something along those lines is going to be in the hellfire, right? It's not because of anything because of Judas. Right as we mentioned before, in the Hadith, the Prophet Muhammad Salah when they said 999 will go to hellfire, others 1001 will go to Paradise and the Sahaba panic. He said, don't worry 999 We're talking about God. So for all practical purposes, you can say that the vast majority
the population of the world will be in hellfire. Right? So if that is the case, then Hellfire must be a lot larger than the Earth, because the size of human beings in hellfire will be much larger than the size of human beings. Now it's perfectly how Sullivan said in the Hadith, that the truth of a disbeliever of Allah Allah than Hellfire would be the size of the mountain. So we're talking about giants. So Hellfire is much greater than the size of the Earth now Allah.
Allah protects us from
