Now we go back to what I was saying. Those teachings of Rasulullah. Saw Selim, if you look at them carefully, you will find he spoke about how when a person passes away, his deeds are cut off, besides a few.
Those are the ones I'm interested in today, because we're talking of the legacy of a Muslim.
And do you know all of those deeds are connected to how you have benefited others?
All of those deeds.
Let's take a look at the first howdy ada mattogno Adama in Tata and Mamadou in dahmen. Salah if a person, a human being passes away,
his deeds are cut off besides three, what are those three, knowledge that he has left, we spoke about knowledge that he has left behind, which means you taught someone something. In another narration, it speaks about how you have bequeathed a must have if
you gave someone something beneficial. Any moonjune tougher obey knowledge that is being benefited from whether you taught it or you spread it, or you were one of the chain of people who caused that knowledge to be spread. You are not a knowledgeable person, but you sponsored some people for their knowledge, or you brought people to teach others or you were paying the salaries of someone or you were reaching out to those with knowledge in order to promote their teachings or you used to forward good lectures to your friends and to your those whom you could all you used to do whatever it was, but you were not knowledgeable, but you were in that chain, you also get the reward.
That reward is not taken from others, it's given to you. That's it.
sadaqa jariya it means any charity
where the benefit of that charity lives beyond your own life, it's called a sadhaka to injuria.
If my life was 70 years, may Allah grant us healthy lives may take us away when he is pleased with us at whatever age he chooses.
If your life is 70 years, and you have done something very good, you planted a tree. This is also from the Hadith.
It's from another narration, but it's included in this. You planted a tree and the tree lived for 200 years and it benefitted people with fruit and with shade, you get a reward beyond your 70 for another 130 years, the day the tree is gone, your reward grinds to a halt. But a tree is such that at times if that tree has produced seeds and those seeds were planted by someone else, you have a full reward of what another person did because they could have only done it because you did what you did and the seeds came through the Allah
that's the beauty of Allah. That's why Ohara Sasha Geron is in the Hadith in particular it is mentioned
and the prophets are seldom speaks about so many different things.
agera Heron, you know what that means, a person who made a river so that people could benefit from the water, whether it is rain, water, or water coming from a lake or the sea or whatever, the one who channeled these lakes or rivers, the rivers will get a full reward for anyone who benefited from it. notice one thing
this aspect is not direct knowledge. direct knowledge is one we spoke about it already. This is benefiting humankind. If you leave anything that benefits humankind, it is also a great legacy.
