sinuata complaint with our cattle. Mr Nakano Haman hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi, Hajj mine. So hello there, you know because of so many deaths in the community and so many people are losing their loved ones. A question that many people have asked Is that what can we do for our deceased parents? If we have a sibling that has passed away, or relatives that have passed that has passed away? What can we do? And should we go to the graveyard or not? And there's a lot of these kinds of questions. I thought that you know what, let me just, you know, one time talk about this inshallah and share these, you know, very beautiful

00:00:34--> 00:01:08

Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and something that we find from the Quran and the Sunnah about what can we do to benefit those who have passed away? One of the very first things that our journey asked is that do I have to go to the graveyard or not? And by going to the graveyard, does it benefit the person who is deceased or the person who is laying in their grave? Or the answer is not necessarily because one of the best things that we learn from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is that you can do is make dua for the deceased. And when we say dua, even a simple dua Oh Allah subhanho wa taala, forgive them, Oh Allah have mercy upon them, Oh Allah in light in their grave,

00:01:09--> 00:01:48

any kind of dua that you can make dua is perhaps the best thing that has been taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam that we can do for the disease. So when you're sitting at home and you're making dua for the disease, they will inshallah benefit from that dua, if you go to the graveyard rather than them when benefiting from this the person the living, they benefit from this more. This is why we find very common with the nature of the Prophet SAW Salem that he will go to gentle but they're often why. Because when you go to the graveyard, you sort of disconnect from from all that is going on, and you connect with reality. And this is sort of a reminder and a wake up

00:01:48--> 00:02:29

call that I have to also be in I will be in this situation also. So it more is a benefit for the living rather than the deceased. But now the question is that then what can we do for them, as I said, number one is making dua for them. Number two, we find from the seat of the province, is that people will often come to the Prophet alayhi salam, for example, Sodom or Seidman or bladder or the Allahu Allah and he one time came to the Prophet sallallahu. It was something he says I was away on an expedition. And during that time my mother passed away. So can I give a sadaqa on her behalf? Or can I do something good on her behalf? The problem is someone said yes, I should have the Allah on

00:02:29--> 00:03:05

her. She says that one time a man came to the Prophet so long I had sent him and said that Yasu Allah, I was away in my mother, she passed away, and she did not leave behind a will. And I know that if I could have one more conversation with her, she would tell me to give such and such charity. So if I give that charity today on behalf of my mother, will it be accepted or not? The Prophet alayhi salam said yes. And many cases where the Sahaba would come to the Prophet sallallahu ala he was sending him and there was a yellow sola Can I do this and it will benefit the deceased and the property is some say yes. So this is why there are many good things that we can do. Number

00:03:05--> 00:03:46

one as a dua number two is you can provide water to those who are in need. The Prophet alayhi salam says that the best charity that you can give is water to drink to someone who's in need. So that's why there are so many 1000s or so many 1000s of people across the world, especially when you go talk we talk about overseas, people who don't have access to clean water than to provide water and does not have to be only a Muslim community, anyone that you provide water to then in sha Allah, you are giving a great sadaqa in sha Allah and you can give on their behalf, it does not necessarily mean that it has to be from their money that they left behind, even if you get from your own money, but

00:03:46--> 00:04:29

your intention to your Nia is that you want them to benefit from it, Inshallah, they will benefit from that. And if you think about it, think about that all the times, that people will come to us that not only for drinking water purposes, but if they come to us that well of water for making will do to read the Quran, to pray Salat in sha Allah there will be a reward for that person. Another thing that you can do which is very which is very common is that you can feed or sponsor an orphan. We also find that you can sponsor a person or teach a person Quran on their behalf think about this. And I this is a general advice I give to many people is that try to sponsor a child who is either

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

memorizing the Quran or reading the Quran, because every single time they will read the keytab of Allah subhanho wa Taala on every single Herf they will recite in sha Allah, this reward will go to the disease, what a great investment that is. And then if you think about it even further, that if this person turns around, and they teach five more people, or 10 more people and these 10 people they turn around and teach another 10 More people that's 100 People 100 People learning and stuff.

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

thinking and reading the Kitab of Allah subhanho wa Taala on every single hearth, they will recite that that deceased person will inshallah benefit from that. So, this is why there are so many things that you can do, you can do a Haji if you have done your own Hajj and you want to do a hydra on behalf of someone else who has not done hij you can do a HUD on their behalf. In fact, a man came to the Prophet SAW Allah some about this, you can do an ombre on behalf of a person who has passed away and not only that, but then the older man they have even discussed that there is a list that we find that things that you can do, but then is that list permanent? Is that list I mean mean that is that

00:05:40--> 00:06:20

the only thing that we can do and majority of the Anima In fact, all the four schools of thought, the a half the Maliki year the chef urea and the Hannah Billa the scholars they say unanimously, in fact, even before Imam Shafi was somewhat against it, but later on the Shaeffer in scholars such as the greats as imam, no, we and others, they have all have agreed that even when it comes to reading Quran, reading Quran and sending the reward to them, it is absolutely permissible it is absolutely fine. So if people are saying that you know what, I want to read the Quran and I'm making the intention that I want them to benefit from the reward of this, then your Alma have said that this is

00:06:20--> 00:06:58

absolutely permissible. So this is why these are you know, things that we can do Inshallah, to benefit those who have passed away. Of course, those who are those of us who are alive, the DUA that we should be making to Allah subhanho wa Taala is Allahu macchine mad Kennington hire to hire only whatever funny either candle was adequate only, oh Allah keep me alive, as long as life is good for me and give me death when death is good for me. And another dua that we should always make to Allah subhanaw taala is that you take me from this dunya at a time when you as you when you are most pleased with me say I mean, May Allah take us at a time from this dunya when he is most pleased with

00:06:58--> 00:07:30

us, I mean, what will it mean? So these are just few things that we can do in sha Allah. So any type of good any type of lead any kind of southern or any kind of charity that you want to do to benefit those who have passed away? Most certainly Inshallah, no problem. I asked Allah subhana wa Tada all those who have passed away, may Allah enlightened their grave May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive them. May Allah Subhana Allah have mercy upon them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala expand their graves and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make their grades a garden to paradise. I mean, no, but I mean, does that Kamala hate assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
