Belief in the hereafter. Believe in the Hereafter, is an essential part of Eman. If you think about it, this is what
our religion is all about. Preparing for the,
the home of the hereafter. If a loss of panel data sent the prophets sent the messengers to mankind in order to guide them, it was so that they could prepare for their hereafter.
If Allah subhana wa tada has appointed so many angels to record man's deeds, to report to Allah soprano data about a person is doing it is so that he can have reward or punishment where in the hereafter. If Allah sent books, Revelation guidance It was so that men could live by it, so that he could prepare for the hereafter.
Allah Hara is a reality. It is a fact. It is undeniable. It is the greatest reality.
This is why in the Quran, one of the first things that we learn about the believers is what we've been hearing at home, you know, in the Hereafter, they believe with conviction with certainty. They don't have the slightest doubt in the coming of the hereafter in the reality of afterlife.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam also when he described what he meant was, he also mentioned in the hadith of gibreel, that you also believe in the hereafter Allahu Allah.
Now the question is, what does it mean to believe in the hereafter? What are the components of a man been a hero?
It is to believe in the reality of life after the life of this world.
It is to believe that when a person leaves from this world, then he has not terminated, he has not ceased to exist. No, he has just entered another world, another realm, the real eternal world, where he will be recompensed for what he has done,
he will meet the result, the fruit of his life's efforts. So it is to believe in the reality of life after the life of this world, that the departure from this world is the beginning of a new life. It is not the ending of life rather, it is the beginning of a new life. And this means that a person believes in Alberta,
what is Alberta
the existence the time period between when a person departs from this world until the Day of Judgment is established. So it is to believe in Alberta. It is to believe in the day of judgment and all of its events, as well as the eternal abode of Jenna and Johanna.
The question is, what are the proofs of
the textual proofs from the Quran and Sunnah? Are there any evidences that there is life in the grave?
that there will be a day of judgment that there is Jana and now Are there any groups many, from the beginning of the Quran to the end of the Quran, you will find the Quran abundant with the mention of the matters of the hereafter in the Sunnah Also, many, many Proops. What about logically,
rationally? Does it make sense that there should be a hereafter Of course, in the Quran, Allah says, and so to me known I have 115 of her her civitan and Nima, Hakuna komagata, or a knuckle, Elena letter, Jerome, you think that we created you uselessly for no reason? For no purpose? And you will not come back to us? No, there is a reason behind your existence. Everything that exists on this planet, there is a reason behind it. There is a particular role that it is playing. And if you think about it, everything is benefiting human beings in one way or the other. So what is that man made for? What are we made for where we had to insert the room if 19 Allah says you have to do Hey, I'm
in a meeting where you could actually make it I mean, hey, when you heal overburdened multihull, what can I do to hurt you, you will be brought out, you will be resurrected because Allah has the power.
Did you live to the dead, he produces the living from the dead and the dead from the living. And likewise one day, you will also be brought alive from your graves into outside i a 28. Allah says, a natural Edina Avenue armina, Sally had come off sedena fill up a natural mechanical for job, if all the people were to die and turn to dust, and that was the end of human beings. Would that be fair? No, because there are different kinds of people, there are those who believe, and there are those who don't. There are those who perform righteous actions. And there are those who don't, there are those who oppress, and there are those who are kind. So how is it that opposite people have the same
and it does not make sense, rationally the article demands that there should be consequence, there should be a result that if a person has put in a lot of effort throughout his life, he must reap some benefit at the end of it, he must get some reward at the end of it. And Allah subhanaw taala is justice demands that also, this is the reason why there is a hereafter. And this Hereafter is real. There is no doubt about it, it is a fact it is definitely coming. And every single one of us is going to meet his end one day, and it begins with death. So the first thing that we're going to study in a man will aphylla is the life in a bottle.
What is Alibaba? that literally means a barrier,
a barrier? So basically, between the people of this world and the people who have passed, is there a barrier?
Yes. The people who are in their graves and the Day of Judgment, what's going to happen after that? Is there a barrier? Yes. So this stage of transit in the middle, the stage of transit in the middle when a person departs from this world, until the day of judgment will begin. This stage of life is known as Alberta. And where will a person spend that in his grave, in his abyss, and when will a person go to his other whatever that may be? when, after his death. So death is certain. If there's one thing that human beings are certain about, is what it is, regardless of their religion, their philosophy, their way of life, whatever it may be, there are certain about death. It is eliakim. And
when a person dies, then his hereafter has begun. Because in Hades, we learn man matter for other comet piano. Whoever dies, then his piano has been established. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to the Bedouin, that before your piano, meaning your death. So the word Piano Piano to sola minor resurrection, the minor piano refers to death, and what will follow it the life in Alberta.
In the Quran, we learned called lunasin, that every soul is going to taste that.
If there was any person who would be exempted from death, it would be those who are righteous, but we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, also, he departed from this world, in a coma yutan were in the home,
you are going to die, and they too will die. In surah number 21 ayah 34. Allah says one major analysis showed him in comedy can hold for no human being, has a lesser penalty given hold, meaning eternal life in this world. No. Every human being that is going to be born. He will also one day die when at his fixed time. And every person their time of death is fixed. Agile Muslim kita Urban magilla nanaka domna Bina Komal mode, Allah has decided for every single person as to when they're going to die, but is it known to us? No,
it is not known to us. But just because we are not aware of when it is going to happen. It doesn't mean that we can neglect it, because it is a reality.
And we must spend our lives preparing for it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the grave is the first stage of an era. If a person is saved their meaning he passes through it safely. Then whatever follows it will be easier than that. And if one is not saved there, if he is punished over there, then what follows it will be much more difficult than that.
By Allah I have never
I've reviewed a site more frightening than the grave.
who's saying this?
The profit or loss
regardless of how righteous how obedient a person is, eventually is going to go into grave. And the prophet SAW a lot of them described the grave as the most frightening. The most frightening place that a person could be in
the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said in the grave is a squeezing. Meaning when a person is buried in his grave, than the grave, squeezes him,
it's quiet squeezes his body, so that he feels that pressure in the grave is a squeezing. And if anyone were to be saved from it, it would have been Sorry, I've been more
Sorry, I've been robbed, there'll be more on who, at the death of whom the throne shock.
His funeral was attended by many, many angels. He was a companion who was given the good news that Allah was pleased with him. But yet, when he was buried in his grave, his grave squeezed him. If it didn't spare him, who isn't going to spare?
A child was once buried, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, If anyone were to be saved from the squeezing of the grave, it would have been this child.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, these graves are filled with darkness. They're dark,
for those who are in them, and Indeed, Allah filled them with light, by my prayers for the people in the grave.
The grave is tight, it will squeeze a person and it is dark, and the prophets that a lot of them describe it as the most frightening place. In another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he mentioned the 10 of the graves. But then the one who puts to fitna meaning the angels that will come and test a person in the grave asked him questions, and the angels that will either bring punishment or reward. So the Prophet sort of odd isn't it was mentioning the fatality of the graves. So Omar Abdullah, who I knew he was surprised, and he asked, Will our intellect be returned to us or messenger of Allah? Will we be conscious? our intellect will be returned? The prophets of Allah said
and replied, Yes, just like you have them today.
You will be as conscious as you are right now.
In another Hadith, we learned
that Earth man will deliver on who he wants to do it at a grave, and he wept. He wept so much that his beard became with, he was asked, When you remember paradise and hell, you don't cry? But you cry over this great, why are you crying?
Or smiling a little on who said, the Messenger of a loss that a lot of them said the grave is the first station of the hereafter. If a person survives here, then he is successful. And if he doesn't survive here, then he's only doomed to eternal misery.
I shall build on her. She once said to the Prophet salatu salam, O Messenger of Allah, this nation will be tested in the grave.
So what will happen to me? I am a weak woman.
I am a weak woman. What will happen to me?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
you'd have better luck letting
Bill coalescer bit Phil higher, didn't you or Phil?
Allah will give stability and firmness to those people who believe
with an old habit, in the life of this world and also in the Hereafter, meaning with Allah's help.
Only with Allah's help, will a person be able to pass the test of the grave,
without a loss help. A person cannot pass the test of a great
How would a believer be in his grave?
a righteous person, an obedient person. And on the other hand, how will a sinful person be in his grave a disbelieving servant in the Quran we learn in Slovakia
the lobby for all
And if the deceased was of those brought near to Allah, then for him his rest and bounty and a garden of pleasure. And if he was of the companions of the right, then the angels will say, peace for you. You are from the companions of the right
into the natural Ayah 32 we learn Alina that our fellow human Mullah eager to tie up your coluna salam, Aleikum, odo hollow Janata, Bhima contenta Malone, the ones whom the angel stake in that being good and pure, the angels will say, Peace be on you enter paradise for what you used to do. So the fact is, that for a righteous person, his reward begins from the moment of death. Yes, death is difficult. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that indeed death has Sakura La Ilaha Illa Enlil Moti Sakura, because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam himself also experienced the pains of death. The departure is difficult, but if a person has been obedient, then from the moment of death onwards, we
see that the reward begins. It's just the beginning of reward. In our heads we learn Hardison Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, a believer is given good news of reward and forgiveness right at the time of his death. Right at the time of his death, when the time of unbelievers departure from the soil draws near, then angels descend to him from the sky. And these angels.
Their faces are White and bright, like the sun,
bright, beautiful, and so bright as if they were the sun. And they bring with them the shroud of Jenna, and also its fragrance. And they said at the distance of his visions extent, meaning as far as a site can go, that's where the angel said. Then the angel of death The Malakal mode, he comes and sits by his head and says, All nestled in all satisfied so happy person, pleased person, the one who was happy with the decrease of Allah with the commands have
come to Allah's forgiveness and pleasure.
So his soul exits the body, like water flows out of a waterskin. When you pour water out of a jug, how does it come out, it flows easy. And just like that the soul of the righteous leaves from the body so smoothly so easily. The Angel of Death receives it, but in less than the blink of an eye. The angels who have come along with him, they take the soul immediately from him, and they cover him with the shroud of gender. And they apply fragrance on him, which they have brought from gender and such fragrance emanates from his body, the fragrance of which is unmatched on this planet. And they take his soul and ascend up to the heavens, they take the soul and ascend up to the heavens. In a
hadith and Buhari, we learn when the believer is dying, he is given good news of Allah's pleasure and reward. At that time, he has given good news. So there is nothing more beloved to him than what is ahead of him than a person looks forward to what is before him. So he loves to meet Allah and Allah loves to meet him.
And this is what it means by the ads that we learn in Alina Kahlua. Bonilla, so Mr. Karma, then at the time of death, what happens that unnecessary delay human melodica and those angels, what do they say? latter half? Oh, well. Don't be sad about what you've left behind. And don't be worried about what's in the future for you know, earlier or conville higher the dunya was, we were your friends before and we are with you now. We're going to take you we will keep you safe. And you have reward that is awaiting you what a comfy hermitage that he and pusaka you will have every wish of yours fulfilled. So when a believer hears these comforting words at the time of his death than what
happens, he looks forward to what is ahead of him. He wants to meet Allah he's eager to meet Allah and Allah loves to meet him. In a hadith and even magia we learn that when the soul of the righteous is taken up to the heavens, because the angels they ascend with the soul up to the heavens, when they reach the skies, then what happens is that the dwell
of the skies. And who are they Lucena? What? The angels, all the angels that find out that this righteous soul has come. They welcome him. They welcome him, and they continue to welcome him with positive words with praiseworthy words. And they say, welcome, oh pure soul that was in a pure body, enter Hemi, that you are praiseworthy enter and rejoice with the good news of rohilkhand you have reward awaiting you. And they say rejoice with the good news of a lord who is not angry. And this is continuously said to him until he reaches the summer, where Allah subhanaw taala.
So the soul is taken up one level above the other. And the whole time all the angels have come across that so what do they do? They give him good news. They congratulate him, they comfort him. And they love that sold so much that the angels of each guy they accompany the soul to the sky above them. In a hadith and Muslim we learned the angels of each guy accompany the soul until they deliver him to the one above this hadith and Muslim dharma.
And when they meet the soul, they pray for him the angels pray for him they say room Paiva Jasmine kibble of sunlight Allah who is a key or our lead just said in couldn't eat are moody you know?
They say all good soul that has come from the earth. May Allah bless you. Subtle Allahu Allah. May Allah bless you. And may Allah also bless the body that you used to live in. The soul is taken up to the heavens, all the way to the sky where Allah soprano Dawn is above where Allah soprano paradise. Basically, the soul is taken up to the early gene. This is the journey to the heavens are lean. And over there, the person is made to meet other righteous sorts, meaning of the people who have passed before him. And when they meet him, the one who has just come. They're happier than the people of the earth, when they meet someone whom they have met after a long time. If we meet someone, after
many, many years, what is the level of our happiness and our excitement, especially if we've lost that individual, we've lost touch with them. Imagine the souls in their iligan when they meet the newcomer, they're even more happier. And they asked him about others. They asked him about those whom he has left behind. And they're told by the angels leave him, let him relax for him know who can a few 100 lunia because he was suffering from the pains of this world. So leave him let him relax. They keep asking about those on the earth. They ask math I love to learn what so and so person do McFarland Fulani, what did that woman do help us? or What did she eventually get married,
they asked about the affairs of the people of the world. And when they asked him about a person, a particular individual, and he says he died already. They realize that he did not join them into religion. So they say in that in that he were in LA.
He didn't join us, he went somewhere else.
Then the soul is brought down to the earth. Because Allah subhanaw taala says, from it, I created the human beings and in it, I shall return them and from it, they will be resurrected, they will be brought out again. So the soul is then returned to the earth
and the righteous soul he wishes to go to his grave quickly. When the body is being taken and when the soul is being taken back to the grave. In order for the person to be tested in the grave. The person says but the moon is caught the moon he quickly quickly. Quickly Quickly. I want to eventually meet my reward. And after the burial when the person is buried.
Then the deceased he hears the footsteps of the people walking away when his family has buried him and they're walking away. He hears their footsteps. Just like if there's somebody walking on the floor above us do we hear them walking? Yes. So imagine when a person is lying in his grave. And the people are returning they're going back he can hear them walking away for the righteous person when he is tested.
Then what happens when he passes the test the grave is made vast, it is expanded. It is made spacious. It is filled with light. It becomes a roller, a garden that is hot draw that is green. That is luscious, luscious green.
garden 70 cubits by 70 cubits vast, massive, and it becomes as bright, just like on a night you have the full moon. So despite the darkness, there is light. So this is how the grave is for him. All of this that I mentioned to you, I've taken this from so he heard this.
And obviously, he is questioned in the grave. How is he questioned, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, How disintermediate
when the diseased or one of you is buried, there come to Him do angels,
Black and Blue Angels, scholar said black faces and blue eyes.
I want you to imagine
that you are in a new place, all by yourself. And something appears before you extremely terrifying, dark and all you can see are just two blue eyes.
Black and Blue Angels,
one of whom is called al mooncup. And the other is called and Nikita the angel say they asked him they make him sit up. And the question him, what did you use to say about this man asking about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
In other Hadees we learned they asked him manga book Medina, Medina bu. And in different Hadith, we learn different versions of the questions. What did you use to say about this man? So he says what he was saying before death, he is Allah slave and this messenger, I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is a slave and His Messenger. So they say, we knew that you would say this, and then his grave is expanded 70 by 70 cubits, and it is illuminated for him. And then it is said to him sleep, sleep. And he says, Can I return to my family to inform them? That Alhamdulillah I've passed my test. They say sleep as a newlywed whom none awakens but the dearest of
his family, until Allah resurrect him from his resting place. So he will remain like that, until the day of judgment. In his grave, when he is placed, then his good deeds protect him. They come in the form of a beautiful person with a beautiful appearance, and they protect him from all sides. in Hades we learn that when a disease is placed in his grave,
and his family depart from him, he hears their footsteps if he was a believer, prayer stands by his head, his Salah.
What does it do? It stands by his head, fasting stands to his right, and zurka stands to his left, and his other good deeds such as honesty, upholding ties of kinship, and treating people kindly his ears and they stand by his feet, when he is approached from the direction of his head, approached by what, by punishment, then his prayer says, you cannot get past me when he is approached from the right is fasting says, you cannot get past me. Then when he is approached from the left Hezekiah says, you cannot get past me when he is approached from the direction of his feet, his good deeds such as honesty, upholding ties of kinship and treating people kindly, they say, you cannot get past
me. Then it is said to him set up and he sets up, the sun is made to appear to him as if it is about to set and it is set to him, Who is this man who was among you? So basically he is asked the questions then. But we learned that the good deeds of a person, what do they do? They protect him from all sides. And at this time, we need to ask, what are our prayers like?
What is my fasting like? Are my fasts complete?
My Zika my Sadako. In another notion of Otto Bomani, we learn when he is approached from the side of his head that the law of the Quran defends him. His recitation of the Quran defends him. When he's approached from his right, his sadaqa defends him. When he is approached from his left his walking to the masjid. His walking to the masjid defends him.
We need to think about our deeds
in the grave when he is made to sit in order to be questioned. And he is made to see the sun as if it is about to set. The person says leave me so that I can
can pray. Why does he say that? Because he had a habit of performing prayer. He knows that the matter of Salah is urgent. So imagine in his grave, he says, leave me so that I can pray. The angels say but now you have to answer these questions. And then the test that asked him with regards to his Eman And Allah with regards to his Amen. In Islam in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with Allah special help the believer, he passes the test, he answers the questions correctly. And the angels say to him, you have spoken the truth. And then the person is made to see Hellfire and his abode in it if he were to have done cover. And he's also made to see Jenna and his abode in it so that he can
look forward to it. And when he's made to see Jenna, he actually gets up in order to go. Just like when you see something on a screen, you almost feel that it is real. So you reach out to it. Like many times children do.
So likewise a person in the grave, he will reach out in order to go to Paradise but he is told to remain where he is. And the grave is expanded for him. When he answers the questions correctly, Allah subhanaw taala confirms him. Allah says God saw the power of God, my servant has spoken the truth. And Allah says, spread a bed for him from gender and open for him a door to gender and dress him from the clothes of gender, and the fragrance and cool breeze of the net reach him and his grave is expanded to him as vast as his eyes can see a decent activity. his good deeds appear to him in the form of a beautiful person and dispel his loneliness. So he begs a lot to begin the judgment to
hasten the day of judgment to make it come quickly so that he can join his family and meet his ultimate abode. We also learned from God that the souls of the righteous are given the form of green birds that roam freely in
the souls of the righteous are given the form of green birds that fly freely in gender jar for too long are you the one who was killed in the Battle of
the Muslims were very few in number were facing the Roman armies of 200,000 jar photo below our who was killed over there he was Shaheed the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said about him, I saw him flying Indian.
So the soul of the Shahada, the souls of the righteous are also given the form of birds in general, and the body is made to sleep. So the soul experiences joy, and the body is made to sleep in the grave. Because in several studies, we learn the person who stole sleep like a bright, like a newlywed who none awakes, but the one who is most beloved.
So this is the end of the righteous person. And he experiences this reward this joy, displeasure discomfort until the day of judgment. What about the sinful person?
What about the person who's weak in his faith? Who has doubt in his Eman? Or the one who rejects outright? What do we learn about him?
But if he was of the deniers who were astray, then for him his accommodation, of boiling water and burning in Hellfire, the punishment begins from the moment of death onwards. So to the natural Ayah 2829. Allah says, alladhina Tata, our fellow human malayaka to me and forcing him the ones whom the angel stake in depth while wronging themselves. And we learned from so many verses, that the angels strike such people, they beat them at the time of death. They beat them at the time of death. We learned at the Battle of brother, the verses that were revealed afterwards, they also described how the disbelievers were falling, being struck, being struck by the angels.
And how these we learned that when the angels come to take the soul of a sinful a disbelieving servant, then what happens? What kind of words do they say to him? comforting words, words of reward? No, they say all evil. So the same thing happens the angel
Come and sit at a distance of his eyes expand, his visions expand, and they wait until the exact time of death. And that is when molecule mode comes, he sits by his head, and he says, all evil so kabisa come out to Allah as punishment is anger. And when the person hears this, he doesn't wish to leave the body than the soul spreads in the body. But what happens? The medical mode extracts it out of the body by force, and how did the prophets all of a sudden describe that, like a skewer like a thorny branch that is being pulled out of what will what will happen to that wall, it will be shredded, completely shredded? Has it ever happened with you that something with many thorns on it
perhaps gets stuck in your clothes,
and or sometimes a pin, it gets stuck in your hijab. And if the material is very soft, then what happens as you pointed out, it only gets ripped and destroyed. So this is how the soul is pulled out. And once it is extracted, pulled out by force, so painfully, that what happens in less than the blink of an eye. The other angels take the soul from melaku mode, and they wrap it in the shroud of hellfire.
And such evil smells, stench comes out of that body. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he was describing that he covered his nose, he covered his nose to express what disgusting smell comes out of that. So now the people of this world may not see may not smell, they may not know but who knows. A lot of parallels are the nose. And in reality, this is happening. Just like there's so many things going on around us close to us. But we have no idea. We don't see them. Because we are limited in our perception. There could be 1000s of bacteria, right on your skin around you, but you don't see it. Just because you don't see it. It doesn't mean that it's not there it is there. The soul is
extracted, it is pulled out. And it is covered, wrapped up in the garments of Hellfire that had been brought from their evil smell, and the angels to take it up to the heavens. But when they take it, all the other angels that come across that soul, because of that smell, they asked Who is this Habiba So, so they describe him with the worst names of that individual with the worst descriptions. And when the soul is taken up to the summit of adonia, or the gates opened? No,
no, they're not open left to fit the hula home abueva Center, the gates of the heavens are not open for them. So what happens then the soul is thrown down, thrown down from their gas directly into the body thrown down. And this is how the prophet SAW The Lord has been described in the Quran. Also, we learned that whoever does Shrek than it is as though he has fallen for the Buffalo.
And the birds are snatching him, oh web, or that wind is going to take him away. Basically, it shows how terribly the soul will fall.
No welcome for the soul up in the heavens. The angels don't want to see this person. They don't want to be close to the soul.
And when the body is placed in the grave, same thing the person hears, hears the footsteps of the people going away. In her these we learn that if he was a hypocrite, and when he is asked the questions, eventually, he would say I heard people saying something. So I said the same. I do not know. I do not know. He's not able to answer the questions.
And the thing is, that if you are confident about something,
if you are 100% sure about something if you lived your life a particular way with a particular mindset, then no matter what situation you're in, those words will come out of your mouth. And if you're not sure, then what happens, then you have to think and think and think and yet nothing comes out of your mouth. Many times it happens that right before an exam. A person might experience something traumatic. Perhaps invigilator is very strict with him or the person at the front desk is very rude and harsh with him. And what happens as a result, they're traumatized. And then they cannot pay attention to the actual test. And they fail it. Right? Even though they studied for it.
But they were shaken up by the way they were treated. Now imagine the angels that are going to come uncle and Nikki. Imagine the most terrifying place is the grave. So a person who is shaky in his faith. What is he going to say? I don't know.
I don't know, leave me alone. Don't ask me. I think the people used to say something like that he will not be able to pass the test, he will not be able to pass the test.
in Hades we learned about the sinful and disbelieving servant that when his soul is taken out, he is called the me meta meaning or the Mima meaning or evil one, or repulsive one, or disgusting one blameworthy. He hears these words from the very beginning. And when he hears the description of the punishment that is awaiting him, he hates to meet Allah. And Allah hates to meet. He doesn't want to go ahead.
He doesn't want to, but obviously, his wish doesn't matter anymore. When his body is being taken to the grave, he says to his people, Where are you taking me? Where are you taking me? He doesn't want to go. When he failed the test. He is told ladder I will tell you never learned nor did you follow. You didn't find out. You learned about many things in the world. Those things that interested you. But the things that are real, that are more important for you Your Eman, your Creator, your hereafter your messenger. You didn't care about them, lad or ieta wallet later, and even if you came to know you did not follow and in the grave, he is struck with a sledgehammer so bad that he screams
horribly. Which all but the jinn and men hear the scream, which all but the jinn and men here he is dressed with the clothes of Hellfire, and the door to Hellfire is open for him and the grave is tightened for him. it squeezes him so much that his ribs get interlocked.
his ribs get interlocked. His deeds appear to him in the most horrible and disgusting appearance, or julen cubbyhole watch, disgusting face, or be her Thea, the most disgusting clouds
evil smelling foul smelling. And it says Who are you? What are you?
And that person replies I am your online and I'm going to come hobbies. So the person says Oh my Lord, do not establish the
Don't let the hereafter come because of this is my state now, then what is going to happen later?
When he fails the test there's nothing to protect him from the punishment. Nothing by his head no to our of the Quran. No sweller knows. No sadhaka no Essen, he's alone. There's nothing to protect him. And so in this we learn one who is deaf and blind. An angel that is deaf and blind, doesn't see him doesn't hear his screams, is appointed to strike him with a sledgehammer, which, if a mountain was struck with it, it would turn into dust.
And he continues to strike him and punish him like that, until the hour is established. In a hadith in Sahih. A deliberate or him
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam explained the punishment in the grave. He was mentioning that and he said it will be through 99 theanine. He asked Do you know what that is? The people said Allahu Allah Sulu Erna. He said 70 snakes, having seven heads each
70 snakes, having seven heads each that will bite the person until the day of judgment. He is approached from the side of his head, his right his left but there's nothing to guard him. He is made to see Jenna morning and evening in his home in general, if he had believed and obeyed
and he is made to see his abode in hellfire. And he is told sleep like Him and who
the people asked who is manoosh abora Buddha on who was narrating this hadith He said, The one whom crawling creatures and snakes have bitten
a person who is bitten by ants, by snakes. By crawling creatures, he is one who and the grave is tightened for him.
The grave is fighting for him.
It is because of this, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us to seek refuge with ALLAH
From the punishment of the grave, I shall build over on her said, allez messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to invoke Allah in the prayer
in the Shahada before Salaam, every time he would say, a llama in the Ruby come in, or that,
Oh Allah, I beg you to protect me from the punishment of the grave.
One of the companions, he said once we went out with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam accompany in the funeral of a man from the inside, when we reached his grave, it was not yet dug, so the Messenger of Allah solace and him sat down, and we also sat down around him.
And everyone was so silent, as if birds were sitting over our heads.
He had in his hand, a stick with which he was scratching the ground. And he then raised his head and said, seek refuge with Allah from the punishment in the grave, or people seek refuge with Allah from the punishment of the grave, because it is real.
It is real. Now the question is, what is it that brings punishment to a person in the grave?
Because this is a reality. There are many evidences in the Quran, Sunnah, that show that the grave is reality. So what are those things that we must avoid in order to be saved in the grave? First of all, first of all, what is necessary?
avoiding all forms of flesh of shuck of nifa
being sincere and truthful with Allah soprano guard.
That is important. Because if a person has shuck
in Allah and His Messenger, there's no way he can pass that test No way. And if he will not pass it, then definitely, he will be punished.
What else is a source of punishment in the grave?
You're in not being careful about the splashes of urine. The prophets of Allah sent him said had Ethan Hakeem, protect yourselves from the splashes of urine, for most of the torment of the grave is because of it.
majority of the people that are punished in the grave, why? Because of negligence, in the matter of urine, not cleaning their body, not protecting themselves being careless, in the matter of the hoorah.
And as a result, their Salah is affected. Obviously, if there is an agenda on the body because a person has been careless with his thought I'll be that it will his prayer be valid, then he will spread and adjust that everywhere. And as he is spreading, adjust that he is also affecting the worship of other people.
The prophets of Allah sent him said, It is because of this, that the people will be punished most in the grave.
What else is the source of punishment in the grave?
spreading slander, gossip, Mima
gossiping, basically telling people, she said this and he said that and she did this and he did that Why? So that people have grudges against one another. And they argue with one another, and they fight with one another, basically, to create a sad that will do to destroy the people's relationships. Because of this also, there's punishment in the grave once the prophet SAW this in the past by a grave, and he said the people in it are being punished. Why? Not because of something very serious. But because one of them was careless with regards to the splashes of the urine, and the other use to spread no Mima, amongst others.
Also, we learned that Hulu
being treacherous with regards to the public Treasury, that is a means of punishment in buses, when the profits are a lot of talent went for marriage, he was shown many people who were being punished and who were the consumers of labor.
Those who commit Zina
right, such people likewise those who neglect the Quran, those who lie.
So all of these punishments, what do they show that a person is being punished in the life of Bursa, meaning in the grave? Why? Because of these sins, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, we're not that you might become afraid to bury one another. I would pray to Allah to make you hear what I can hear of the torment of the grave. But the thing is that if you were to hear it, then
you would stop burying your dead.
In another Hadith, we learn a person who has knowledge and despite that he apostates he leaves Islam, he commits gopher, then he is also punished in the grave. We learn about a man who became a Muslim, he knew how to write so he was one of the scribes for the prophets of Allah sent him meaning he was very knowledgeable, and then he left Islam
he was a malted. Eventually, when he died, his people buried him. The next day, they found the body outside. They said Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and his companions have done this to our friend. So they buried him again. The next day, same thing happened, his body was outside. And this happened repeatedly, repeatedly that his body was lying outside the grave. And this is mentioned in
another Hadith in acetyl. Sahara, we learned that a person will be terribly punished in the grave, an angel will strike him will strike him with a lash with a lash imagine, and he will ask, why are you doing this to me?
Because as a result of that lash, not only will he be hurt, but his grave will be filled with fire. So he will say, Why are you doing this to me?
The angel will say that you performed your prayer without will do.
You performed your prayer without will do and Salah wahida. One prayer is mentioned. Remember that one prayer that you performed without Voodoo.
And remember that one time when you passed by an oppressed person, and you didn't help him?
When you pass by an oppressed person, and you didn't help him?
So what can we see, if a person is dishonest with Allah, whether it is in a matter of bottle, or it isn't a matter of prayer, or it isn't a matter of Amen. Or it isn't a matter of money, in relationships, whatever it may be, dishonesty with Allah, insincerity with Allah is basically the root cause of punishment in the grave. And on the other hand, if a person is honest with Allah with himself sincere, then he will be protected in the grave.
And how these we learned that a person is punished in the grave because of the people who cry over him. There was a debate amongst the scholars that why would he be punished for the crying? The excessive crying, obvious people? I mean, it's their wrong action. Why should he suffer? They said, because he did not stop them. He did not teach them when he was alive.
He let his family remain ignorant. And as a result, he will suffer in the grave because of the wrong actions. If he taught them. If he strove to bring them on guidance, then he will be saved. But if he didn't care about their actions, then he will be punished. This is also in sincerity with a lot right? Because if a person is sincere, then he would want the same for himself and also the same for others. Then he will not accept the fact that his family is committed and wrong, his family is ignorant, he will do his best to teach them also. What is it that protects a person from the punishment of the grave? In her these we learn that a person who dies in the way of Allah Shaheed he
is protected from the punishment of the grave were you gentlemen or their little puppy, he is protected from the punishment of the grave. In fact his death is so easy for him. In her these we learn that it is just like a person fields you know a pinch or like something folks you
that pain is the amount of pain that a Shaheed suffers when he passes away and in the grave, no punishment for him reciting sudo thermal before sleeping hard isn't a Silverado. So he has Sora tabarrok, he and many, many others. It is one that will prevent a person from the punishment of the grave.
When a person dies, because of some abdominal disease, because of some abdominal disease, that is also means of protection. Obviously, it will be when a person also believes and when he's sincere in his faith in a hadith
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Mankato Allah who botany who fell in your eyes never feel copper he the one whom his stomach kills, meaning he dies because of some abdominal disease, then he will not be punished in the grave. Then a person who guards the Muslim borders, guards the Muslim borders are rebelled. And if he dies, because of that he was guarding and he is killed over there, then he will also be saved from the punishment of the grip. In addition, Muslims will walk here or there but he will be saved from the punishment of the grave. A person who dies on Friday
will be protected from the punishment of the grave. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said had decent Muslim men and Muslim in here. motoyama Giamatti Olay, letter Giamatti, Illa waka hula who fit within
the person who dies on the day of Friday or the night of Friday, which is the night of Friday,
Thursday, right. So, he said this person will be saved from the funnel
of the grave, Allah Subhana, Allah will protect him.
And here, we need to realize that while we prepare for the grave with our actions, reciting Surah mulk, performing certain actions, refraining from others, it is also necessary that we make the art or law, because if the Prophet of Allah sought refuge with Allah from the punishment of the grave, that we must do so also in the morning, in the evening, and lahoma in the middle Godfrey will Allahumma in the hour that we come in, are they have been left in a hurry. illa Anta morning and evening, in every prayer, because the squeezing of the grave, the darkness of the grave, all of that is real. And only those who will survive it, who are fortunate, whom Allah protects with his special
protection. Those who are satisfied with Allah, that Allah will satisfy them, Allah will also protect them. We are most proud of me because of
