Alright so like to cancel so give everyone just
2030 seconds to settle in a shot well
then we'll start
Okay, now, Mr. Heyman hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah him Corinne are the early he also he was selling to Sigmund cathedra. So we continue now in Kitab Al Imam in the book of faith. We're going to skip a hadith just because it talks about Mrs. lochsa in detail and I'm not going to go into detail about Muslim Oxford today. I'm doing a webcast in Charlotte on a Thursday night about Muslim Oxon Schelotto. So I'm not gonna go into detail with that hadith. So we're going to skip over inshallah Tada to chapter 31.
Which at the moment Buhari Rahim Allah to Allah calls dub Hasni Islam and Mali that the superiority of a person who embraces Islam sincerely the superiority of a person who embraces Islam sincerely. Now, just to point out here to sort of continue on the notes that we've been speaking about, we talked about the Hadith in which which the prophets lie Selim talks about Islam, being easy and a person not to go to extremes with Islam said they do what caribou love to do what Oh, who was she in a dual GT? Or was she on a dual GT depending on which generation so the profit slice and M says to instead be balanced, be moderate? Because the religion is easy? And if a person goes to extremes
with the religion, then they're going to hurt themselves? So they're going to find themselves exhausted, and they're going to eventually quit the entire religion? So Bukhari Rahim, Allah Tada then gave us a hadith about mercy the Aqsa about how on the believers used to pray towards the Qibla.
They used to what when Allah subhanaw taala changed the couple of for Muslim OXA to mess it haram and Mecca, some of the Muslims were worried that all of the salah they had done up until the change of Qibla would go to waste. So Allah revealed and I will not count along the Yulia Imana come Allah subhanaw taala will not let your faith go to waste. So that idea, or that hadith, which I'm not going to go into too much detail, but just so you understand the transition here into this hadith, that hadith basically affirms the concept, that if you used to do something upon a previous legislation, or you used to do something in a way that used to be acceptable in Islam, but then
legislation came and it changed it, or if you used to do something, thinking it was correct. Let's say that you've been doing something in your prayer your entire life. And then you realized in a class or you read you read something, you read a hadith, you you came across a scholar who taught you that you've been doing it all wrong the entire time. All right, Allah will not let your Eman go to waste. Allah will not let your good deeds go to waste. Allah will still accept those good deeds but now you need to act in accordance with what you know to be correct. So you can't insist on the mistake anymore. Once you realize that it's a mistake, right? So now we move on to a major concept.
All right, which is a person who embraces Islam sincerely, a person who comes to Islam sincerely. So this hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and it's a hadith Narrated by Abu Salah even Hodari probably Allah Tada and who, either Osama Labdoo for Hassan Al Islam or who you can feel a long one who couldn't say attend Cana Zarafa, the profit slice and I'm said if a person accepts Islam sincerely, then Allah subhana Horta, Allah will forgive all of his past sins. And after that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, What can I buy at the Vatican because after that is the settlement of the accounts. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says it has to be
actually unfairly hurt in our sovereign immunity, where if the prophets lie Selim says that a good deed will be rewarded
by 10 times up to 700 times and he said sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam was the year to be Miss be here in LA and yet agile was along on the part on how the prophets lie. Selim says that as for the sin, it will be punished or you will be punished for your sin for exactly what it's worth, meaning Allah does an increase a sin, we already covered this concept. Allah will increase your good deeds by the minimum of 10. Up to 700 up to whatever Allah subhanaw taala wants to do. But as for the sin, Allah Subhana Allah Allah will not punish you except for what that sin is worth. or Allah subhanaw taala with forgiven altogether, right, but Allah will never increase a sin. A sin is a sin. And you will
only enter Hellfire if you enter how fine May Allah protect this all by the justice of Allah subhanho wa taala. Right. So we're going to just focus on the first part of this hadith for today, Inshallah, tada, we're just going to cover the first half of this heavy, because it's a very powerful, interesting concept. Whereas I feel like the second part, many people have heard many times before we've covered it. In fact, in previous discussions in the study of hypertrophy, say to diligence, the journey to Allah by even my job, we covered it in this Masjid in a lot of detail. So next week, inshallah we'll cover the second half as well as the Hadith after because it goes along
with it in sha Allah Tada. And today we'll just focus on the first half of the Hadith because it's a very powerful discussion. First of all, one of the things that my teacher pointed out, which was very beautiful, he said that this was the teaching method of the prophets of Allah it was either for out to have that for like you have if you do this, then you get this. If you realize it's a constant turns with the Prophet, slice ALLAH, do this, and here's your reward. And the only time the prophets lie some would come out of that is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would use a slogan to add up would use like this amazing, or the statement of amazement or to catch people's attention.
Like, do you know what we'll get to gender? Or do you know what deed you could do? That would enter you into Jana and you will not be punished? Or do you know what you could do? And this would happen or that would happen? Like there are a few Hadith that start like that and say, What is it your sort of Allah, and then the prophets lie, some tells them what it is. But the prophets lie Selim always connected reward to action. Right? He wouldn't just tell the Sahaba by the way, I just, you know, something amazing for you all this and this and this, and this is going to happen to you all, he always would bring fed with the Agile he will always bring an action with the reward, most of the
time, he would use this style of sentencing which we have here, do this and you will get this or if you do this, do you know what you will get in return? Or do you know what will get you this than do this? So there are three different ways the profit slice I'm used to teach and those were the different methods of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now he also had been hijacked. Rahim Allah points out that allowed the servant here is referring to male and female there is no distinction here between the man and the woman. Now, the question here What is Russel Wallace Isola mean when he says what has sunnah Islam? As he said either as dermalab When a person becomes Muslim,
but his Islam becomes good. Okay, how sunnah, Islam. Now what his Islam becomes good means is a very lengthy discussion, because it's not enough then to just say, Islam that a person became Muslim. Rather, they have to continue in a certain way, and their Islam has to be good. Now, what is good is very subjective. Alright, what it means in the technical sense here has sunnah Islam that his Islam was good is that he accepts the crit. So there are a few conditions. Number one, he accepts the Creed externally and internally. So it's Valhalla and it's boughten, there is a submission of the heart, as well as the submission of the limbs. That's the first condition to a good Islam. And
number two, he sincerely strives with every action to please Allah subhana wa Tada. So he now directs his actions towards Allah as well, his heart, his tongue, his limbs are directing themselves towards Allah subhanaw taala. And this is of course, the perfection of his sunnah Islam is son, is what's known as excellence in the hadith of Gibreel, which have been asked to Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, tell me about Exxon, tell me what excellence is. And the prophets like Selim says on top of the locker and Mecca Tada that you worship Allah as if you can see him. And if you can't see him, then you know that he sees you. This is the peak of sincerity. Right? The peak of sincerity
in your Islam, is that it is all for Allah subhanaw taala it's entirely for Allah. Now the basic hustler Islam on the Companions would say about a person, his Islam became good because you see this frequently in Hadith literature or in biography literature. What it would mean is that a person was Muslim, but they were openly wicked in some way. Okay, meaning they became Muslim.
But for example, they were still alcoholics after the prohibition of alcohol. Okay? The person became Muslim, but they remained alcoholics or a person became Muslim, but they had some serious major deficiencies and creat major deficiencies in their beliefs. So they accepted Islam, but they still had major issues, meaning there was something major that was contradicting their Islam, and then they made Toba and then they repented. So people would say Hassan Al Islam, his Islam became good as Lama wa Hasina Islam or he became Muslim. And then he went through this phase in life where Hassan Islam or so that's a very common thing that you'll find in the stories of the companions are
the stories of the people of the past, right? So there is a basic recognition that he was sincere in trying to be Muslim that there was a goodness in his Islam that at least it was correct. It was a correct Islam. And then of course, there's that which is love to Allah subhanaw taala which is what's in that person's heart and only Allah knows that right? We cannot interfere with that, but we only assume good of people. Right? The prophets like Selim says that when you see someone who's good or you see someone who's who you think is excellent say you know, as you know, as evil okay, like that, I assume him to be that way. Allah has evil and Allah subhanaw taala is is ultimate judgment
on was FTR Allah, you know, we don't, we're not going to to override the judgment of Allah subhanaw taala. If someone dies as a martyr, for example, as we can see, as it appears to us, we'll say he Shaheed but at the end of the day, Allah will determine whether or not he will actually be raised up as a martyr on the day of judgment. And it's the same case with everything else. You don't say if someone dies as a Muslim? You don't say yeah, but I know he used to do this. I'm not sure if he was Muslim. So we're not going to pretend Aslan him. He died as a Muslim. You pretend as on him, whether or not Allah chooses to raise him upon Iman, Allah subhanaw taala makes that judgment he makes that
decision. So Hassan Islam, as far as we're concerned is that a person is doing it correctly? Right? He's not there's nothing major. That is that is contradicting his Islam. There is no major contradiction in Islam, whether it's in creed, or whether it's in fact shot, whether it's an A major immortal, deep, and of course to Allah subhanaw taala. The ultimate axon is that all of your actions are done for him and not for anyone else. Now, here's the thing.
What happens then to his deeds, and this is where the discussion takes place. And this is where a very interesting discussion arises. Amongst the Redeemer, the prophets like Selim says As Salam he became Muslim, or Hassan or Islam, and his Islam was good, the prophets lie Selim says all of his previous sins will be forgiven. So then what happens to his good deeds, what happens to the good deeds before Islam and what sins are going to be forgiven? Now the first thing look at it from the context of the famous hadith of Ahmedabad and also the Allahu Taala honorable the Allah Tada I'm home when he was dying this is a Hadith in Sahih Muslim it's a very famous narration but I'll give
the beginning of the narration because it's very beautiful. When Allah will be allowed to add on who was dying a companion or a tablet he by the name of ignition Assa Ibn schinoussa He said how about our will also the alongside and who will who FeCr potty whoa VCR Patil note we attended or we tended to um and also the Alon just as he was about to die, the great companion ombudsman also the lawn for that Carol Pauline and well how will allege her who either Dida for Jayadev know who your call yeah
I know the shorter Carlos will Allah He someone while it he was Celebi cover on the shoulder Karasu, the boys on the low on the cover. I know the shoulder cover schoolboy some of the cover. So basically Amina also the Allahu Anhu as he was dying, so great companion. He started to cry. And he turned away from the people. And he looked I mean, he looked like he was very sad. So I'm dilla his son started to say to him, Oh, my father didn't evolve. It's nice. And I promise you this, didn't he give you the glad tidings of this? Didn't he give you the glad tidings of that. And there's so many different narrations where the prophets lie some of them gave you some good news, some glad tidings
so you shouldn't be sad. You should be happy. Allah for acapella the words he said that armour turned his face towards his son
for color in Ebola, nor into Shahadat shahada to Allah ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, in the Quran to Allah Akbar can Thirith now he says to his son, he said, The greatest thing that we put our hope in is that we were able to say La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah. The greatest thing that we put our hope in is that Allah gave us the testimony to give shahada and he says for cut contour Allah Akbar Qin Salah he says that I was upon three stages in life, I will divide my life in three different stages. He said la Cauldre at 21
I had done a shed the book one Yasser Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa salam, I mean me. He said that there was one state in my life where there was no one on the face of the earth that was more hated to me than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam if I divide my life into three, he was the most hated person to me, in that state, and he said, that what I have the LA and Akona called is called the STEM camp to Minho.
For Cattell to follow me to Allah tickle how like going to an island now he said, In that stage, nothing would have been more beloved to me than to actually kill the Prophet saw myself. Like I was actively trying to kill the prophets of Allah Hardy who was salam. That's how bad I was. I hated him. I was an enemy to the prophets like Selim, I was actively trying to kill him. And he says, and if I would have died in that state, further moved to Allah till can have the quantum in Ireland now I surely would have been in hellfire he says for alumna John Allahu Islam if he called me he said but then Allah put Islam in my heart so now we're going to second phase of life. First phase he said
I was definitely in hell I was an enemy to the Prophet spice on second phase, he says lemma Jihad Allahu Islam if you want to be a tea to Nabil sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for called to it. He said, I went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I said to him of sodium Enoch. Give me your right hand fella obey Erica so that I can give you the bay I can give my pledge to you. So I went to the prophets I some I said give me your right hand and this is something that's common. It's not necessary in shahada but it's you know, to give the right hand to the Prophet slice and then was to pledge to him and it had great implications. So he says felt Fidel SAPA Yameen the prophets lie
Selim he gave his right hand to Amina also the Allahu Taala part of a kebab to God I took my hand for about two demons I literally I put my right hand out the province lice and put his right his right hand out then I hit like this. So you would think that that's a betrayal of the profit slice and I'm like this is actually not going to be an agreement or not okay, you're hungry the profit slice I'm told me what's wrong with you or I'm gonna call to a rock to and Estelle it. He said, I want to put some conditions on you.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says to study it will be another What are you going to put? What condition will you put call to and you've already, I said to the Prophet, sigh some I want to be forgiven for everything. I've done a lot of terrible things in my life. I mean, we're not just talking about a guy that used to drink or used to commit adultery. I actively try to kill you. He actively tried to kill the profit slice. He actively try to ruin the Hitsville it's a habit to have a senior I mean, he went in a Joshy. He went to him and Abyssinia and almost got the Muslims that migrated there peacefully killed. And then he was one of the three commanders on the day of oh, he
has a lot of bad things on his record. So he says to the profit slice, I want to be forgiven for everything. That is my condition, the profit slice and I'm responded and he said an item to an Islam uh, yeah, the more Maracana cobbler Don't you know that Islam does away with everything that was done before. We're in the hedge router tatty mama can a Cobbler, cobbler and Hijra does away with everything that came before it, when hedger yeah Dima Maracana, calm loving, and very hedged, does away with everything that came before it. So so um, and also the law and who said when that happened, no one on the face of the earth was more beloved to me than the Prophet sallallahu it he
was salam and I dedicated myself to him and I know that if I died in that state, I would have definitely went to Jannah he said then after the prophets LIESMAN died I don't I mean, this third state and this third state I'm basically summarizing, this is a third state now just you know, not knowing where I am not knowing whether I'm whether I'm going to be of the people of paradise or the people of hellfire. Now the beauty of this hadith the prophets lie Selim gave him three different things right. He told him that Islam does away with everything. Here's a lot does away with everything. Hajj does away with everything before that these three things do away with everything
that came before them. In another Hadith, the prophet spice and M says Al Islam Yeah, at the moment. malerkotla will Hijra Tatem Omar cobbler will tell you the mu malerkotla. So the Prophet SAW Selim says Islam does away with everything before it. hedgerow does away with everything before it the migration does away with everything before it and the prophets lie. Some says Toba. Repentance does away with everything that came before it. And the way that we reconcile those two Hadith by the way, is not how does the ultimate Toba it is the ultimate Toba to Allah subhanho wa taala. However, you could be sitting in your house and sincerely repent to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah
subhanaw taala never gives you the opportunity to go to Hajj but Allah Allah
gets you down the reward of being forgiven the way that your mother gave birth to you, as opposed to a person who could go to Hajj and it's not done sincerely and they don't repent sincerely to Allah and they come back and nothing has happened for them. Allah subhanaw taala has not forgiven them at all. So will the prophets lie some one time he says Toba another time he says how much? How does the most sincere form of Toba? If a person doesn't sincerely it is the ultimate repentance to Allah subhanaw taala. But yes, if you're in your bedroom, and you cry to Allah and you repent for your major and your minor sins, okay, even your major sins can be forgiven by Essence, Saratoga to Allah
subhanaw taala. But how does the ultimate expression of that Toba and that's what's love for us as believers because we can't keep taking shahada again, I actually knew someone in my life. I'm not I'm not making this up. I wish I was making this up. Right? But the guy became Muslim. And he realized that he messed up a lot in life. So he left Islam for a day. And then he came back to the masjid the next day. And he said, I want to take Shahada. And I was like,
you know, this is kind of strange. So he literally came back 24 hours later and said, I want to take Shahada. And I said, you know, what was that all about? He said, Well, I realized that the first time I really, really messed up. So I left. And I thought that if I come back and take shahada again, then I can I can start over again. I was like, No, that only works the first time.
You can't intentionally leave this and say, I'll come back to a slab. And then I get to do away with all of my sins that came before that. Right? It doesn't work that way. But rather, it's when you initially accept Islam. And if a person you know, for some reason really left Islam and then they left Islam for a while, then they sincerely came back to Islam, Allah, Allah, Allah, maybe Allah subhanaw taala would forgive them for all, but you can intentionally try to play that. Now the thing is, is that that I'm going to ask the prophets lie some for all of his good deeds before Islam to be accepted. Didn't
know. He just asked the prophets lie Selim that all of my sins be forgiven. And the province lies some gave him that. All right, so we don't have a and in this hadith that I mentioned, you don't have a confirmation that the good deeds, anything that was done before Islam is accepted, which brings about this long discussion. Right? So if all of the sins are gone with, what about the good that I used to do before Islam? Now there is a narration and a data puts me and more an Imam Malik Rahim Allah to have the more problematic, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam says mom and Abdon you slim there is no believer who becomes Muslim for years you know, Islam and he and he
excels in Islam. He does good in his Islam Illa Khattab Allahu Allah who couldn't hustler except that Allah subhanho wa Taala writes for him every hustler Zilla for her every good deed that precedes it. And the Allah subhanaw taala forgives well not her annual loss Pantagruel wipes out every copy every sin he did before snap so that's another narration it's not one that's found in Buhari and Muslim and so on so forth, which is why this discussion becomes really drawn out. It's not as strong as these narrations alright, but now let's go into the discussion. What happens to a person's deeds before or a person's deeds that were done before it's not
a noisy Viking, a lotta Allah, He says, I'll carefully lay a male hood Chicago, IL Allah, that when a person is a disbeliever, there is no way that they can come close to Allah subhanaw taala for these deeds, because they weren't doing those good deeds for Allah. And one of the main conditions for a deed to be accepted by Allah is that it's done for Allah subhanaw taala so how can we say that the good deeds that were done before Islam will be accepted by Allah subhanaw taala so that's one opinion. I'll call it a yob Rahim. Allah to Allah also held this opinion, that no the good deeds that were done before Islam were missing the essential ingredients, that which is sincerely seeking
Allah subhanaw taala. So those good deeds will not be accepted by Allah subhanaw taala. Now remember, no Rahim Allah to Allah, He responds to that. And he says that, in fact, all of the good done before Islam will still count. And he said some of the scholars even said there's a chimera on that, that this is consensus. He said, If the disbeliever did things with noble qualities, like a Sikh or similar to Russian, like truthfulness, right, they told the truth or they establish the ties of kinship, like they were good family members, they were good family. Men are good family, women. All right. They did things that we can agree upon that are noble and beautiful. They're no good
before Islam, the noble after Islam, they had a personal holiday and a lot of times when people have hustlin holed up they have good character. They just say La Ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah and they're already better Muslims than most people. Why because Hurston and Holyoake good character is one of the main objectives of Islam. In fact, the prophets lie some says mm adware is to the Otama McCallum and a flock that I was sent only to establish good character to uphold a great standard of character
Right, so a person says Lila Allah and you see them and how many times have you seen people and you're just like, if only they became Muslim, they'd be the best Muslims in the world, right? They're better businessman. They're more honest and more, you know, they have more integrity, they're sweeter and all that. All you have to do is this become Muslim And subhanAllah, they'd be better than all the rest of the Muslims, right? You meet people like that. So you never know you already know Allah says, There is no way that you can say that all of that Allah subhanaw taala a shortcode. Right, Allah subhanaw taala lets all that go to waste. Of course, Allah subhanaw taala
will accept it. And he said that when he becomes Muslim, that will be rewarded as well. Now there's the unknown there, the good deeds that were done, that are Ibadah right acts of worship, obviously, those acts of worship, right, that were done without seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. Of course, they're not going to be accepted. acts of worship are different, but things that are just good noble qualities in Tamil Nadu and the way that people deal with one another good things they did for people charity. Right. All of that would still be accepted according to the Imam. And now we Rahim Allah to Allah, and then a few different things that the scholars point out as proofs because
this is a lengthy discussion now. And I'll just give you some interesting rulings, and some interesting proofs. I'll give you guys a question. If if two people were non Muslim,
and they got married as non Muslims, and then they came to take shahada All right, what happens to their marriage contract? A Christian man, Christian woman, they were married before Islam, married in the church, okay? Then they came to the masjid. They took shahada, let's say eight years later, they've already got two kids. What happens to their marriage contract?
canceled, someone said cancelled.
They have to remarry.
Or is it conditional? Like let's say there was no Willie there. The Willie was not there. The Guardian was not there is a conditional do they have to? If so if the when he was there, it was accepted? Right? What do you guys think? Or is it uncut? Alright, so there are three options here. Alright, the option of just I don't know, just go home and figure it out. That doesn't work either. Right? Three options, one option is unconditionally valid. The second option is unconditionally canceled because they weren't Muslim. The third condition or the third option is that it depends if the marriage contract was in accordance with an Islamic contract, which means that when he was
there, and so on, so forth, what
is that the prophets, I sometimes did not go back and remarry all the Companions after they became Muslim. Okay, meaning the contract at the time
counts. Okay. Islam perfected the contract, they don't have to go back and redo the contract. Alright, so the reason why this is brought up by some of the scholars is that there were some conditions essential that conditions that were missing, Islam came along and perfected it. Right, Islam came along and completed it, but you don't throw away what was good before you don't just say the marriage contract is done. And by the way, now that you're Muslim, I hate to tell you because you weren't Muslim, your contract was improper, those two kids that you have.
They no longer legitimate, actually, somehow that actually happened a few times, actually. But that actually has happened. I mean, you can see the the questions that MJ gets that Mesoamerica pa gets have actually had emails, or people that, you know, we're acting in the place of an email that actually told people that you know, what the kids that you had before Islam, they're not, they're not legitimate. They're all that Zina because it was before Islam. And the contract was, it doesn't work that way. Islam came and completed it. Islam came and completed. We also have obviously on the spiritual side of things. So that's something that's obviously very technical, it's very much so
with jurisprudence, and it's legal and it's legal in its in its legality. It's to be accepted, but from a spiritual side of things, where the profit slice and I'm says, for example, that the do out of the love of the room, the supplication of the one who's oppressed, there is no hijab. There is no veil between that supplication and Allah subhanaw taala. Even if a person was a non Muslim, if they called upon Allah while they were oppressed, sincerely calling upon Him, they just called upon Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala would accept that supplication All right. Finally you have the very beautiful words have been Bhopal Rahim Allah Allah Khalid Mopar, Quran Allah He and you're
tough hombre. Peabody, Hebei Masha, well, Artie Lord the Denali, Allah can Allah can do whatever he wants Allah subhanaw taala can bestow His bounties on his servants the way he wants to, and no one can stand in the way of that and he points out the iron circle costs where Allah says for the people of the book Al Kitab
Whenever they become Muslim, that they would have their edge they would have their good deeds mobile attain twice, because they initially believed in Jesus peace be upon him, they believed in Moses peace be upon him. And then they completed it by believing in the prophets lie Selim. So they would have the Agile Model attained, they would have the good deeds twice in the province twice, I'm also confirmed that in an authentic hadith, that when a Christian becomes Muslim, for example, Allah subhanaw taala gives them twice the reward for their initial belief in their ISA to use Salah and then confirming it, or do you know or confirming it in the right way, with their belief in Muhammad
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so it was Jesus first and maybe even with the inappropriate, you know, connotations in their opinion, their creed, so it wasn't accepted altogether at that time. But then they believed in the prophets lie Selim. And that gave them the proper way to believe in Jesus Peace Be Upon Him and believe in Moses, peace be upon him. So Allah would give them the reward twice, as Allah tells us and sort of across US, there is also a narration, by the way, from the shell of the Allahu taala. And, and this is a powerful narration, it's about a man by the name of Abdullah Banerjee that I'm actually wanting to give a hope about the love Ninja done. So maybe one day but
his full story really interesting, young guy, despised by his people, he lived in a time in the prophets lie Selim. And he wanted to commit suicide. I mean, he was so sick of being hated, low self esteem, has no face in society. Nobody likes him, but he wanted to commit suicide. So he goes up into the, into the caves, you know, into the mountains and into the caves to commit suicide. Right. And as he goes there, he sees what appears to be this huge snake.
Then he realizes that that's not a huge snake, but it was an idol, or was rather it was the graves of some of the ancestors of the people of Jordan.
And the snake was actually made of gold and the eyes were diamonds, and their tombs had all sorts of treasures, and so on, so forth. So he took all that gold, and he took all those treasures. And he went and he became one of the richest men in America. And this guy became so beloved to his people. Why? Because he used to pay for everyone's weddings. He used to hold these huge feasts. He used to take care of anyone that travelled to Mecca, all her jobs, and so on so forth. He took care of everybody. So he became a man who was known for a charity, a man who was known for hospitality, anyone who needed help, they went on to love to dine and he take care of them and so on so forth. So
he became famous for helping people. So this fortune changed because he discovered all of this money and so on, so forth. So it shouldn't be Alana. She asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. She said, what happens to have injured and all the good that he used to do? What happens to it? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that he never once set up the thoroughly plumb yaku Yeoman hayati. He never said in his life, not one day, did he ever say Oh ALLAH forgive me for the sins that I committed. So what does that mean? His good deeds would not be accepted. Now, here's the thing. What the scholars say about the Hadith, though, is hard. He said, rob the fairly had he just
one time said, Oh, Allah forgive me and repented to Allah subhanaw taala. All the good that he would have done would have been accepted. Islam would have polished all of that good that he would have done. And it would have been accepted. But because he never wants to repented to Allah, He never wants to turn to Allah, it all goes to waste, right? So there are two extremes to this, which is you could look at that story. And you could say, there is no good in anything that you do before Islam. Or you could look at that story. And you could say that, all you have to do is do this and so on so forth. What the prophets lysozyme is telling us is that by making Toba to Allah subhanaw taala by
repenting to Allah subhanaw taala, all of it would have changed, all of it would have been accepted. And so this is something that we this is a principle that we take Islam, when a person becomes Muslim, all the good that they did before Islam is accepted as well. Now if a person died as a non Muslim, right, as far as their good deeds are concerned, Allah subhanaw taala is just the last 100 To Allah even with the people of hellfire. Allah subhanaw taala has done on that there are degrees, right? The punishment of Abu polyp and hellfire is not like the punishment of Abu Lahab and that the prophets lie some was asked all the good that Abu Talib did, would it help him in any way and the
Prophet slice them said that He's the least punished and hellfire. So yes, he still is punished, but he's the least punished whereas a Buddha have obviously, you know, is the worst punished in hellfire over the worst punished in hellfire. So there's a difference between the two. However, this is of the tragedies, right if elbow partner would have said La Ilaha illa Allah and this is what the prophets lie some was begging him at the end of his life, just give me La Ilaha illa Allah, right. Imagine all the good that he would have done, would have been accepted would have all come that the goodness that he did in his life, but all you have to do is just say that you know, and Allah. So
the way that what we take from this again, from that first part of the hadith is that when a person becomes most
When all of the sins that they did before Islam are forgiven, all of the good deeds that they did before Islam are still accepted. And that is from the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that he allows your good deeds to continue while not holding you accountable for the sins you did in the past. And by the way, this is also true for Toba. This is also true for repentance because the Prophet slice and I'm told us about repentance and Hajj and so on so forth,
that if a person sincerely repent to Allah Subhana Allah, and Allah allows them to turn the page in their lives, it doesn't mean that all of the good they did before is not accepted. You know, there's a very beautiful example that someone once gave, I don't remember which chef it was, but it was a very beautiful example.
He said that a person was on his way to something that was hollow. Right? Based on this principle, he's on his way, let's say to go to a club or something like that, or go to a bar something really bad. And on the way, he did something good. He helped someone he did something good. He went he did what he did. He committed these major sins, he came back, he repented to Allah subhanaw taala later on in his life, look at how merciful Allah subhanaw taala is that that trick of doom actually would be in his favor on the Day of Judgment. Allah would have converted it to good because Allah would have left the kindness the good action that he did. And Allah subhanaw taala would have completely
removed the fo the traces of that sin. And that's why Allah subhanaw taala says you can follow he completely expats and then he says Subhana Horta, Allah, you not the law who say he our team has an ad, Allah changes their sins to good deeds, which is on the Day of Judgment, a law could even change the sins that you committed into hasnat into good deeds. He could actually make them for your favorite because you sought forgiveness from Allah you repented from Allah subhanaw taala and Allah Subhana Allah Allah forgives everything that was done in a situation of ignorance. Lastly, just on this note, what about P FOSS? What about things that were done? That involved lowvolume that involve
wronging people in justices? What happens to that? What do you guys think? Are they still gonna be held accountable? When they become Muslim for wronging other people, well, they become Muslim. So some of the scholars they said that Allah judges those on an individual level, because Malala minutes do not disappear. When people have rights, the rights don't disappear. Even the rights of animals, Allah Pantai says the rights of animals will be upheld on the Day of Judgment, right? Even animals will get their rights back when they were wrong. So you can't say that non Muslims will not get the rights back because they when they were wrong, they'll they will get their rights back how
Allah subhanaw taala judges a person on the Day of Judgment What a loss penance does, Allah will judge it on an individual basis, some of the scholars said Allah would compensate the victims in a way that was pleasing to them, without punishing the one who did it in this case, that Allah would still find a way to, to give that person back everything that was owed to them, without punishing the one who did it because that person did it in a state of disbelief in the state of California. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best and we what we say with that is that Allah is not going to be unjust that on the Day of Judgment, Allah will hold everyone accountable as an individual. That's
the rule that we keep coming back to whether it was a Muslim or a non Muslim, a believer disbeliever Allah subhanaw taala decides a person's ultimate fate in a person's good deeds and bad deeds and what's accepted and what's rejected. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept our deeds and to grant us the ability to do Hajj sincerely for his sake. And if he does not grant us the ability to do Hajj sincerely forsake that he allows us to be in a perpetual state of Toba, of sincere repentance where everything we've done before is wiped out. And that Allah allows us to die in that state of Toba, that state of repentance where everything that was done before is wiped out, Ilana. I mean,
I'll go sister first. Yeah.
Okay, migration Hijra for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Now the hits, that in the time of the Prophet slice them, obviously was hitting it off from Mecca to Medina. That's the ultimate migration. Right.
The Scholars say, though, that if a person made some sort, you know, some sort of migration, it could be even within cities, right? Or, you know, you migrate from one city to another for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, that there's some reward for that, that certainly that's something that's that Allah looks at very favorably. But the ultimate hits or the ultimate migration is definitely you know, it's from Mecca to Medina where they left everything behind them. You know, that was the ultimate expression of their faith, that they left everything behind them to join the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so that is the ultimate migration, everything that comes after
that. And this is where the prophets lie. Some said, for example, that and this was a hadith we covered early on in Behati. That true Hijra is when a person leaves that Maharaja Romana Hula, hula and a person leaves that which was prohibited. So you migrated from a state of sin to a State of Belief a state
Good deed. So all of those things are up in the air and variables but again the Ultimate Hits is the Hijra from Mecca to Medina. And that's the context of most of these Hadith in that regard.
Today's topic again, I
don't remember the exact wording but the concept is the dole who became became, became Sabi.
Nila the phenomenon Well, Athena, how do when I thought I was lobbying him and I'm going to be law he really I'm going after this is in sort of Bukhara. The eye is contextualize is talking about the people that believed that were Nosara, the Mossad of a Saudi salaam, so all of the prophets were Muslims, all of them call to a state of Islam but with different legislations. So it was talking about those Christians that accepted a Saudi Salam and those different believers that follow along worshiping Allah subhanaw taala. And believing in Allah and the hereafter, so it's contextualized to that time,
because when the Prophet SAW Selim, after the Prophet SAW Selim, right, that's the legislation, then that's the that's the way that's accepted at that point.
So, coming back, or coming back on camera like
every person, right, this is by itself.
Yeah, so in that situation.
Right. So the ultimate Toba, the ultimate repentance is repenting from a state of disbelief to a state of belief, right. And that's what you're saying. The only thing is that hadith, the way that we understand that hadith in this context, which is that everyone is born upon fitrah, everyone's born upon Islam, and then their parents, make them into whatever religion that they follow. So they would make them into Christians, or Jews or Hindus, or whatever it may be at that point.
A person is not accountable to Islam until they hear about Islam.
Right. So even though they were born upon that, what the the effect of that fifth was, stays the effect of that fifth one states that goodness, that initial, that that inclination that a person has to Allah subhanaw taala has to good is still inside of them. And I was just, I was actually just mentioning this hello, I was in the UK this weekend. And we're, you know, the topic of Islamophobia, and so on, so forth. Isn't it really miraculous that with everything that's going on, with all of the negative external pressure with all of our internal failures with how bad of a job we're doing at conveying the message of Islam, that is still the fastest growing religion in the world, Subhan
Allah, that's just a miracle from Allah, that's a sign from Allah Subhana Allah that Allah is basically telling us that he doesn't need us to deliver this message, right, that people still find their way. I mean, it baffles me, it's really a miracle, that you'll find the person that that's sitting at home, watching all this negative stuff that's being bombarded with all this garbage, all this Islamophobia, and then the Muslims that they do, and that they do finally meet in public don't do anything to counter that image that they've been given in the media, right. But still, people find a way to become Muslim, they still find a way to become Muslim. And in fact, the rate of coming
to Islam is greater than any other religion. And so that's a miracle from Allah subhanaw taala. It's a miracle from Alana, it shows us that this is this inclination is within people. And there are good people out there that eventually they find it and show what's on it. And when that call comes to them, it it resonates with them in a in a special way. Right, the recitation of the Quran because they're listening with their hearts, they're listening with their ears right away, it affects them, even though they don't even know the meaning of it at times was just it affects them, right? Because Allah put that already inside of us, and that's from his mercy upon us.
If somebody has just heard about it
doesn't matter how good or bad it is enough to know if a person and we talked we had a full class actually about this hadith where a hadith where we talked about Mammon hija, which you just mentioned, the completion of proof upon a person, a person merely hearing the word Islam does not mean they heard Islam, a person watching Fox News, doesn't mean they heard about Islam, or they heard Islam because what they heard on Fox News is some weird, twisted distorted message. Right? But in order for its mom and her dad to have that completion of convenience, Islam should have been conveyed properly and the person should have been in the right state of mind to receive a snap. And
what that means is that person for example, was not prepubescent, that person was not was not someone that had some form of dementia, some form of mental illness on so forth that wouldn't have allowed them to listen
To the person was not feeble. You know there are different things different excuses out of all that we have and Allah makes the ultimate judgment on the day of judgment so we conveyed the message and we believe that this is the path of salvation but the last primetime makes the ultimate judgment as to what whether or not the hedgerow was established on that person or not the proof was established on that person or not alone. Does that move ahead and guys, I'll let you go and shallow will continue in the next
we'll continue next week and show a tie with the rest of the Hadith. While the philosophy comes panicle Amanda shadow Lila and it's tough to break with Santa Monica
