On the night of a slotland Mirage, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that one of the scenes that he saw was that we came to this garden. And he said that it had the most beautiful colors all of the colors of spring in that garden. And he said, so the lahardee was Salaam and there was this tall man, he was so tall that his head was above the clouds in that garden. And he said that he saw some there were children playing around him, and he said, that was the largest number of children I had ever seen.
So imagine this garden, this man who's so tall, his head is in the sky, the most beautiful garden he had seen slice alone. And these beautiful children, the largest gathering of children that he had ever seen. sulla lahardee, he was alone. And so he says that I asked the angels Who was that man? And they said that that was Ibrahim alayhis salam. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and who were the children around him, and they said that those are the children who died in a state of filth law, they died pure. And one of the Muslims who was listening to the Prophet slicin narrate the incident of an assault with Mirage, he said, O Messenger of Allah, what about the
children of the disbelievers the prophets lie Some said and the children of the disbelievers. So when we're talking about a child that dies, it's less about the uncertainty of where that child is and more about the pain that we feel. And it is not an easy trial, it is probably the most difficult trial that a person can face in this life, a person is willing to suffer with their wealth and with their health before their child. And it is the nightmare of every parent to lose their child. And there are so many a hadith about that, that you know, you can go down the list, one of them that the Prophet slicin mentioned that Allah subhanho wa Taala asks the angels after the death of a child,
did you take the coolness of the eyes, the fruit of the eyes of my servant? And they say yes, Oh Allah. And Allah subhanaw taala talking about the grief of the servant says and what did my servants say? What did my servants say as a result of all of that? And they say, yeah, Allah, how many decades was stabbed? Yeah. They said amazingly, he praised you. He said, hamdulillah and he said in Allah he would name a rod your own to allow we belong and to allow we returned. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says to the angels IGNOU in the Abdi beighton, Phil Jana that builds for my servants a house in Jenna was some Moo Hoo baitul humped a name that house the house of praise. Pamela, it's a
special home in general, because it's a unique tragedy in this life. And no one knows that more than the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, who buried six of his seven children, six of his seven children out of his salatu salam. And we know a lot about the last one, because at that point, this is after Islam, and this is in Medina and also harbor surrounding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as he's going through the pain of his son, Ibrahim dying, and when they brought him was dying, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam entered into the room for Bella who wish him well. I mean, this is very real. He kissed him and he started to smell him, right. He kissed him and he started to smell him.
This is the love of a parent to the child. And when Ibrahim breathed his last the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started to cry. And I'm not even oath. Well the low tide I know he says, to the prophets lie Selim. Why NTR rasulillah you to our messenger of Allah. Look at the question here right because the prophets ISIS has seen Jenna, the prophets lie some saw that scene that we started off with a VA Hema Islam with the children agenda already. And he knows that the Brahim is in a better place when to sola but you're still crying or messenger of Allah, as if to suggest is there a lack of Riba a lack of being pleased with a decree of Allah Subhana hazzan and the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he responds and he says in the line on a treadmill, he says, Listen, the eyes shed tears. And he said that the heart grieves the heart feels sadness when
and he says we're in leafy erotica. Yeah, Ibrahim llama zone on Amazon and we are due to your departure. Oh, Ibrahim, sad. We're grieving over your departure but one on akoto illa my old Allah but on top of all that, we do not say except that which is pleasing to Allah subhana wa Tada. What is that? hemtt mistoria Alhamdulillah in Allah he went, Roger on. That's how you get the house of praise. You don't get that
House of praise by crying less. You don't get the house of praise by feeling less sadness. You get the house of praise by praising Allah subhanaw taala despite your intense pain, and Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Hadith bootsy Murli Abdullah minear in the desert either harbottle Sophia, human Earth Caledonia, Saba lagenda that my servant does not have a reward with me if I take their selfie, their chosen one, you know in the LA slough, hackey right in the LA stuff. A lot chose a lot chosen the prophets license. That's why one narration why sofiya referring to him as his selfie, his chosen one his loved one, my servant does not have a reward with me. If I take his selfie if I take
their chosen one from this world, and they are patient except for gentlemen. So how a lot you know, another Hadeeth by the way that doesn't speak about children but has almost identical wording is when a person loses their eyesight and we ask Allah for our children to be the coolness of our eyes, the apple of my eye, and a loss pantai saying that no one has patience when I take away the apple of their eye and they continue to seek reward from me, except that I will give them gender the same Hadith the Prophet slice Allah narrates that Allah subhana wa tada says that my servant is not patient when I take away their eyesight, seeking the reward from me, except that I give them gender.
And so again, it's not about worrying about where the child is, it's what about me? Will I be reunited with my child? Will they remember me? Will they even know who I am? And this is what I want to end off with inshallah tada a few ahaadeeth in that regard, one of them. Any woman who loses three of her children, they will be a shield for her from the fire. And they said to the Prophet size me on this little law, what about two he said even two, so the children that are lost are a shield from any punishment, they are shield from the fire. And notice, by the way, that this also matches what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, then Robert latane whoever raises two
children, and was dedicated escena terribie Tahoma was dedicated to raising them properly two daughters, then Allah subhana wa tada will cause them to be a shield from the fire. And so even though those children have gone on, those children are shield from the fire. There's another narration that Abolhassan he said that I asked who the Lord said and I said two of my sons have died. Can you narrate to me a hadith from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam that would give me some sort of peace. And he said, yes, these little ones are the little ones of Jenna, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when one of them meets his father or his parents on the Day of
Judgment, he takes hold of his garments or by his hands, the way that I am taking hold by your garments as the Loctite on who was doing and he does not let go of his parents until Allah subhana wa tada enters his parents into gender. And another narration the profit slice of the mentioned with the miscarried fetus, that it would pull the parents, the patient parents into gender, even by the umbilical cord. And so here you have the combination of protection from the fire and entrance into paradise. And the fact that a child would be waiting for you waiting for you at the gates of an agenda to enter you into Gen. And you wait your entire life you hope to raise your child to see
their wedding to see their graduation to see all of these different forms of success. And SubhanAllah. Here you have a child that is waiting for you at the gate of genda. And not only do they remember you even if they died very young. You know when children grow up in this life, they forget their early childhood, your child will not forget you will be waiting for you at the gate of gender and they will not be pleased they will not be pleased until you enter gender alongside them. And Allah subhanaw taala has guaranteed them jumla because they did not even live to commit a sin on this earth.
