he now death and its hardships has come with the ultimate truth the ultimate reality. This is what they have been avoiding what is a lot? So agenda now we're going to speak about Allah azzawajal now is going to remind those disbelievers that they will leave the dunya and that the ultimate reality, whether they like it or not, it is crawling and creeping to them very slowly. Allah azza wa jal calls it I'll Moti bill Huck, it is death widow with the truth in other words, death and it's reality that it is coming it is going because with the disbelievers regardless of time, there are still people that believe that death will not come to them. The Death is always happening to the
other person, but it won't come to them. And allies so we're just making it clear that this is a reality that they have to be faced with.
When it comes to you. Do not try to shelter yourself from it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
This is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said is dying. And he's lying down with a pail of water. And he takes his hand and he dips his hand into that water and wipes the sweat across his forehead.
And in one narration, he says Suhana law in many low Tila Sakura. In another narration La ilaha illAllah in LA Latina Sakura.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when he was dying, he took his hand and paste it in a pail of cold water and wipe his forehead and he said, verily there is no God but Allah And verily there is without a doubt, hardship in death. Can you imagine, this is the Prophet of Allah, a man who was guaranteed that he will enter paradise? What would happen to you and I,
because we don't know where we're going. We are only hoping and praying that Allah is so gentle will accept us in his paradise, and we try our best to do all the right things that will take us there. But here is mn guaranteed 100% he will be of an agenda. And still still he sweats be moments before his death, because of the hardship in the in depth.
And this is all coming from a particular Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it's a long Hadees you can find in Al Bukhari Muslim, and Anil Bara even analysable rhodiola one, it is a very long heavy describing when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to bury a companion and sahabas were there with him. He sat them down and he began to explain to them how the soul is removed from the body and how the soul is removed from the person who is a righteous person, as well as a person who is a sinner to Allah azzawajal that how when the soul is removed from the righteous person, it is removed like drops of water from a faucet as opposed to the person who is a sinner.
The soul is ripped out of their body like a secure placed in a pile of damp wool. Now if you ever do this, if you take like a rake you know those rakes that you use to clean the backyard after you mow the lawn. Well that same idea. If you had a pile of cotton and it was soaked with water, you'll find the cotton. I've seen this myself you'll find that the cotton becomes very close to get a very hard and comes close together that it becomes almost impossible to take out a string of cotton without pulling you know a large amount. Now take this this secure or this rake and place it into a pile of cotton that is damp. And if you pull it out you will find that the cotton will actually hold on to
the rake and it will it will it will actually have like a string of cotton pulling. You can also picture this is like if you put a lot of cheese on pizza and you pull the pizza what happens you see the cheese is hanging and you have to pull it pull it till it snaps. Same idea. And this is how the sinner This is how there's removed
From their body,
we ask a lot xojo always and forever to save us and protect us from this, because this in and of itself is a punishment. This is also a punishment. This is also an indication for that person of where they are heading. That the first stage they are heading is they're going to be heading to punishment from Allah azza wa jal in the grave. And who knows? If from by that time they end up entering the hellfire. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from this and accept all the good things that we do. allow our scale of good deeds to outweigh our scale of mistakes and sins.
