Alhamdulillah Hello Bill Alameen wa salatu salam ala Abdullah he was holy he Nabina Muhammad

00:00:25--> 00:00:29

wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge mine.

00:00:31--> 00:00:35

So this third topic for today in sha Allah Who to Allah

00:00:36--> 00:00:40

is about preparing for the souls final Gen.

00:00:42--> 00:00:49

In the hadith of Ebihara Allah, he said that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I feel

00:00:51--> 00:00:53

musically had me let that

00:00:56--> 00:00:59

he said Axioo the car had him in law that

00:01:02--> 00:01:07

you should frequently remember the destroyer of pleasures.

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

Frequently remember,

00:01:11--> 00:01:17

what is going to destroy every single pleasurable thing you have in this world?

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

And that is death.

00:01:22--> 00:01:30

And Allah azza wa jal describes death, with the word ERP wildewood Rob Becker has yet to kill yaki

00:01:33--> 00:01:53

worship you will note until certainty comes to you and the meaning of certainty here is death. Because death is what is certain right every single one of us is going to taste death cool alone I've seen the ear caught will mouth every single soul is going to taste death

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

in order to prepare for this journey,

00:01:58--> 00:02:03

the first thing that we have to do is we have to understand this journey.

00:02:06--> 00:02:07

And this journey,

00:02:08--> 00:02:09

it begins

00:02:11--> 00:02:19

with the moment of death and that's why the Scholars when they talk about Kitab al Iman, the chapters related to Iman

00:02:20--> 00:02:23

and they talk about Al Eman will be yo mille.

00:02:24--> 00:02:25

Eman in the last day.

00:02:27--> 00:02:34

A man in the last day. It begins with the moment of death

00:02:37--> 00:02:41

and this moment of death is described

00:02:42--> 00:02:43

in the Quran.

00:02:46--> 00:02:48

Allah azza wa jal describes to us

00:02:50--> 00:02:56

wotja at Sacred will motivo will help the likoma Quinta min hooter hate

00:02:59--> 00:03:11

the pains of death or the intoxication of death. You know, Allah azza wa jal describes it as Saqqara the word Sacra ad this word in itself means to be intoxicated, right?

00:03:12--> 00:03:16

We say someone is sacred and they are drunk.

00:03:17--> 00:03:21

Allah describes death, as sacred will note

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

the intoxication of death,

00:03:26--> 00:03:35

that is what you are trying to avoid. And in reality, almost everyone on the face of this earth is trying to avoid or delay

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

the moment of death

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

wotja at Sacra to multi Bill hack

00:03:47--> 00:03:55

the moment of death, and this intoxication of death it has come in truth, this is what you are trying to avoid.

00:03:56--> 00:04:02

So, once we have understood that death is something that every single person has to go through.

00:04:04--> 00:04:06

And we have understood

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

that we must prepare for it.

00:04:13--> 00:04:15

Like the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:04:17--> 00:04:31

to his companions, for something like this limited we had for this kind of thing. You should prepare yourself for it to prepare yourselves for this, a day like this.

00:04:33--> 00:04:38

And that's why in reality Subhanallah we see that many, many people.

00:04:39--> 00:04:46

One of the worst things that can happen to a person is that they are unaware of death.

00:04:47--> 00:04:53

And that's why we talk about sudden death. When a person dies without preparation or without thought.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

You know, like somebody, for example, think about the difference between somebody who dies from let's

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

A long term cancer

00:05:03--> 00:05:06

versus somebody who dies suddenly in a car crash.

00:05:07--> 00:05:44

Of course, if they are Muslim, both of them should have been prepared for death. But we're just talking about on the general human level that you have someone who dies from a long term cancer. For the last two years, the doctor has been saying, you only have this many months left to live, maybe you only have this long left to live, it's spreading in your body, maybe you only have this long left to live, the person is prepared for death. And they're ready for it. They already thought about what's going to happen. They thought about what they're gonna say to their family, they thought about their inheritance, they thought about leaving this world they thought about the hereafter,

00:05:44--> 00:05:50

whether they were Muslim or not all of those things went through their head because they were prepared to die.

00:05:52--> 00:06:04

And that's why sometimes people come to me and they say to me, that Mohamed, you know, I've had a, I've got, I'm sick, the doctor has given me a diagnosis. And he told me that I don't have very long left to live.

00:06:06--> 00:06:49

And sometimes I say I will lie. I know you're going to be shocked when I say this. But I'm going to say to you that Allah has given you a NEMA, he hasn't given to many people. Allah azza wa jal has told you to prepare for death. And many, many people are not prepared. And then I tell them, yeah, he, the doctor doesn't know you're going to live for six months, six years, for six days or six hours. Because not in the hands of the doctor, it's in the hands of Allah, but see the blessing in it, the blessing of knowing that your death is coming. And so you prepare for it. We as Muslims should be like that person by default, that should be our basic way that we approach our life, that

00:06:49--> 00:07:03

we are actually ready for death. And I want to ask yourself, before we talk about the long Hades volleyball, I have no answer, and the moment of death and so on. I just want to ask yourself a question. If you died today,

00:07:05--> 00:07:07

if you died today, what would happen?

00:07:08--> 00:07:27

I don't mean about any anything specific generally. What do you think would happen to you? What kind of a condition are you in in terms of your practicing of Islam and the sins you have? What would happen to your family? What kind of condition are they in? Are they ready? Are you prepared for the moment when you're going to die?

00:07:28--> 00:07:32

The moment you die, ready to die tonight? What happens next?

00:07:34--> 00:07:48

Where are you in terms of your good deeds, your bad deeds, the Haram that you are going to leave next week, the things you were going to do tomorrow? And I was going to memorize the Quran next year? And um, what happens if you die tonight? What happens?

00:07:49--> 00:08:14

What will happen to you? You can't answer that question in a definitive way. But just think about it. Think about what would happen to your family? Have you got our car? Have you prepared an advice and a will for the families as to what will happen to you? And what will happen to your property? Who is have you given responsibility for for the people that you leave behind?

00:08:16--> 00:08:26

Whether they even start? Well are many of us, we are so unprepared, we are not prepared neither for the era, nor for the consequences of death in the dunya.

00:08:27--> 00:08:39

Meaning nor are we prepared for questioning in the grave and being questioned by Allah and answering for what we do. And we're also not prepared from a dunya perspective. Our families are not prepared.

00:08:41--> 00:08:56

We have no idea what will happen the moment you die, what who is going to do what what's the next step who is going to take care of what aspect? There is no plan, because most of us live this life thinking that we are not going to die.

00:08:58--> 00:09:06

Not going to die Not today, not tomorrow, not the next day. Whereas the Muslim who is intelligent

00:09:09--> 00:09:13

is the one who is constantly prepared for death.

00:09:15--> 00:09:49

The person who it doesn't mean that I'm going to die today. I might, but I'm ready. Should I die today, I have the best preparation that I could do. Of course, I'm going to meet Allah with sins like the mountains. I know that. But as much Toba as I could have made as much good as I could have taken out of today, as much preparation as much prayer as much thicker as much as I could do as much as still far as I could do. As whatever I could do. I am as ready as I could be.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

And then you ask yourself with regard to family, so there's a we'll see. The family know what to do. If something happens. This is your first step. This is your next

00:10:00--> 00:10:15

step this is what needs to be done for preparing the body. This is what needs to be done for the janazah. For example, the other day I was asked the question, if you die in a far off place, would you want your body to be transported near to your family?

00:10:16--> 00:10:26

And I immediately said, No, if I die in a place where there is a Maqbara of the Muslims, there is a cemetery where Muslims are buried, bury me in the place that nearest macabre to where I die.

00:10:28--> 00:10:42

And don't delay the burial waiting for the people to come or waiting for this to happen. If you have some people to pray over me just find a Muslim cemetery and bury me there and like whoever is there, pray over me. And whoever comes late, they can come and pray the janazah after that.

00:10:44--> 00:11:11

But a lot of people never answer this question. And that's why when someone dies, the family is in a state any hairline. They're in a state of confusion and loss, like what do we do? Does he want this? Does he want that? What happens to the money? What happens to the house? What do we do next? Where is the money? What how do we pay the bills at the end of the month? The person didn't prepare laffy duniya wala not for that which relates to the dunya and not for that which relates to the archaea.

00:11:13--> 00:11:36

Super preparing for death is something that we should have in our mind. And always the question you ask yourself is the question that Allah azza wa jal poses to you? Yeah, you have Latina M and A Tapachula. Well, tunnels or Neff, so Malka definitely right. Or you who believe have Taqwa of Allah and everybody look, what did you put forward for tomorrow?

00:11:37--> 00:11:39

What's going to happen to you if you die today?

00:11:41--> 00:11:54

And like I said, nobody can answer that question with certainty. Only you can just any look at what you see, and try to improve what you see and try to get rid of some of the harm that you see.

00:11:58--> 00:11:59

So preparing for death.

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

Remembering that you're going to die.

00:12:06--> 00:12:17

And there's a principle I'm going to mention to you. The principle is not a hadith per se, like some of the meanings of it underrated in some of the Hadith, but it's not a hadith in itself.

00:12:18--> 00:12:19

And this is the statement.

00:12:21--> 00:12:24

Whoever lives doing something will die upon it.

00:12:26--> 00:12:29

This is not narrated, I like that in the Hadith.

00:12:31--> 00:12:45

And even Aisha Allah Shay in Mirta Ali, it's not mentioned like that exactly. But the meaning of it is found within various Hadith, that if you live doing something, you will die upon it be in the light Allah.

00:12:47--> 00:12:54

And Allah azza wa jal writes for you the rewards of what you did when you were healthy.

00:12:55--> 00:13:02

So there is no point saying, Okay, today I become sick. And that sickness gets worse and worse and worse until I die.

00:13:03--> 00:13:37

What will be written for me, the worship that I did today, what I did today to worship Allah will be written for me all the days until I die. So if I'm not having a good day worshiping Allah today that's bad for me because it means that the things that I am doing today when I'm healthy, when I become sick the next day, and then eventually the sickness progresses until death, Allah azza wa jal commands the angels to write the worship that I did as a habit, what was my habitual worship my day to day worship? Allah azza wa jal writes that for the person

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

so it's very important.

00:13:41--> 00:13:57

Right now you have your health, you have some time. You have for many of us youth, in varying degrees, some of us are older than others, but you have time. So use it today because that's what's going to be written for you.

00:13:59--> 00:14:02

And that's the meaning of the statement of the Prophet SAW Salem.

00:14:03--> 00:14:08

Il 10. Him Hamsun couple of hubs take benefit of five before five.

00:14:09--> 00:14:15

This hadith is a profound Hadith take benefit of five things before five things happen.

00:14:17--> 00:14:19

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:14:21--> 00:14:33

he mentioned Shabba Baca, cobbler Harmik take advantage of your youth, before you become old, and take advantage of the time that you are young.

00:14:35--> 00:14:36

Before you become old,

00:14:37--> 00:14:39

and take advantage of

00:14:43--> 00:14:46

take advantage of your youth before you become old.

00:14:49--> 00:14:53

Until take advantage of your wealth

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

before you become poor

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

renaker Cabela Zakharik take advantage of your wealth before you become poor.

00:15:08--> 00:15:14

Take advantage of your health before you become sick, say hatmaker Cobla Moravec

00:15:16--> 00:15:18

take advantage of your health before you become sick

00:15:22--> 00:15:37

take advantage of your free time, while Farakka Kubla chivalric take advantage of your free time before you become busy, what higher tech a couple mo tech and take advantage of your life before you die.

00:15:38--> 00:15:54

So if a person takes advantage of their youth before they become old, and their health before they become sick, and their wealth before they become poor, and their free time before they become busy, and their life before their death, and ultimately the last one is like a description of all the other four.

00:15:55--> 00:16:05

So a person who takes care of their youth and their health and their wealth and their free time is the person who took care of their life before they died.

00:16:07--> 00:16:15

So a person always needs to take advantage of these things before the time comes when these things are taken away.

00:16:18--> 00:16:24

And there are many examples of that. In the Hadith the statement of the prophets lie Selim bear the ruble, Amelie fitna

00:16:25--> 00:16:33

rush to do good deeds before trials and tribulations come taken advantage of now, before tomorrow comes.

00:16:35--> 00:16:42

So if we're going to talk about the beginning of the souls journey, the beginning of the souls journey is sacred to remote.

00:16:44--> 00:16:45

The moment of death.

00:16:46--> 00:16:54

This moment of death the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said La ilaha illallah in a multi Leszek alot,

00:16:55--> 00:17:29

he said La Ilaha illa Allah there is no God worthy of worship except Allah. Indeed, death has its stupor like they say, and it's intoxication, the pains of death. As for the believer, what are these pains? They are Mooka Feraud ULoop they're the things that make your sins go away. Can you have those sins left in the moment before you die? And Allah azza wa jal makes those sins go away from you, by Sacra to mouth the pains of death

00:17:31--> 00:17:33

and the pains of sickness that precede death?

00:17:36--> 00:18:08

And Allah azza wa jal for some people like the prophets and the Prophet Muhammad sighs LM it was a way to raise their level and the prophets I some his sins were forgiven in any case, but Allah azza wa jal raised his level by this sickness that he felt the circulatory moat. Allah azza wa jal continued to raise his status in the sight of Allah by it, so you gain good deeds and you lose since there are some people who don't feel it, like the one who is Shaheed the one who is martyred for the sake of Allah doesn't feel

00:18:09--> 00:18:13

sacred to note. They don't feel the pangs of death

00:18:15--> 00:18:44

for those who are shaheed in a way that the Shetty act tells them to be not any these days any anybody who dies any Shaheed this guy who dies doing Haram is Shaheed and the guy who dies killing people is Shaheed and everybody Shaheed it's very important the shahada, which is accepted by Allah is the shahada in accordance with the sooner but I mean, I'm a laser Allah here, I'm gonna for who right? If your action is not in accordance with the Sunnah is not going to be accepted.

00:18:46--> 00:19:15

And there are two types of Shaheed Of course, right? There is shahidul mereka, the one who dies in the battlefield, and there is the one who dies in another circumstance but the Prophet sighs him said, for example, Mancusi, LaDonna Maddie for who Shaheed whoever is killed, defending his wealth is a Shaheed so this one is different from that one, but the one who dies on the battlefield they don't feel sacred to note the pangs of death. Any in general and Allah azza wa jal knows best.

00:19:20--> 00:19:24

After that comes the hadith of Al Vallabh. No as it probably Allahu

00:19:26--> 00:19:28

Babu Azim or the Allah one

00:19:30--> 00:19:41

he said horloge Nirma rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we went out with a messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the janazah of a man from the answer.

00:19:42--> 00:19:49

We went for his funeral. A man from the inside of the people of Medina died and we went out for his Janessa

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

he said Fanta Hanaa ELO cover while a male had we came to the grave and the person had not been placed into the Lachlan either

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

The body hadn't been put into the grief.

00:20:04--> 00:20:07

He said for jealous Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Majelis know how?

00:20:09--> 00:20:22

He said we sat down with a messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we sat around him as though there were birds on our heads. He can never Allah rutina a pile. And he liked they were such so still still

00:20:25--> 00:20:30

worth he ID he Oh dude. And in the hands of the Prophet Tyson was a stick.

00:20:32--> 00:20:34

He was scratching the earth with it.

00:20:35--> 00:20:53

For artha Allah Azza who he raised his head for a call is there either Billa him in either the cover. He said Ask Allah's refuge or seek Allah's refuge from the punishment of the grave. Medulla Taney. Oh fella, he said it twice or he said it three times.

00:21:01--> 00:21:03

And then he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:21:06--> 00:21:14

What happens to the believing soul? Or what happens to the disbelieving soul?

00:21:15--> 00:21:20

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us about the believing soul.

00:21:21--> 00:21:30

In the moment of death, he told the companions in this hadith about the believing soul, and not believing so what happens to it?

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

At the moment of death,

00:21:35--> 00:21:37

and when it's about to leave this world,

00:21:38--> 00:21:45

angels come. And these angels they have faces that are bright like the sun

00:21:52--> 00:22:05

when the person believing soul is about to leave this world, and to face the accurate angels come from the heavens, and they have white faces, like their faces are bright like the sun.

00:22:07--> 00:22:24

And with them they have a shroud from the shrouds of paradise, Catherine on an accidental Jana, they have a shroud on the shroud of Paradise, and they have perfume from the perfume of paradise or fragrance from the fragrance of paradise.

00:22:26--> 00:22:32

And those angels they sit as far as the eye can see. Then the angel of death comes.

00:22:34--> 00:22:43

Then the angel of death comes until he sits at the head of the person and he says a year to Hanif suka Yeva

00:22:45--> 00:22:53

I will move from an inner or soul which is good and he Oh good soul and content soul.

00:22:56--> 00:22:57

Come out.

00:22:59--> 00:23:09

Come out for Fuji Elan mouthfeel it mean Allah He worried one come out to forgiveness from Allah and His pleasure.

00:23:11--> 00:23:32

And the soul comes out like a drop falls from the lip of a water vessel. So how you would have like a water like say for example, a glass of water, how a drop flows down the side of the glass, you know when you drank, and there's a little drop and it just goes slides down the slide of the glass. That's how the soul comes out.

00:23:35--> 00:23:38

And those angels they take it at home to her

00:23:42--> 00:23:57

they take it the angels take it and those angels they don't leave it in the hands of the Angel of Death time for time even for the blink of an eye. They don't leave that soul in the hands of the angel of death for even a blink of an eye

00:24:00--> 00:24:03

they put it into that calf and into that shroud

00:24:04--> 00:24:07

and they put it with this

00:24:08--> 00:24:09


00:24:10--> 00:24:11


00:24:15--> 00:24:36

and this is the statement of Allah azza wa jal telefax Hooroo Sunnah wa hula you will return our messengers, cause or cause it to die or responsible for its death and they do not warm law your favorite one they do not fall short in what they have been given as a job.

00:24:37--> 00:24:45

And there comes from it as smell like the smell of the most beautiful Musk on the face of the earth.

00:24:47--> 00:24:49

And so they begin to ascend.

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

And they do not go by any group of angels except to the angels say Marhaba Rohan type who is

00:25:00--> 00:25:14

Is this person with this beautiful soul. They say fallen on they say fallen who fallen. He is so unsold the son of so and so by the best names that he's known by in this dunya

00:25:15--> 00:25:25

until they finish and they reach the lowest heavens, and they reach the first heaven. So they've taken this soul all the way up into the heavens

00:25:27--> 00:25:36

and they reach the lowest heaven. Phase 51 first 50 Hoonah level, they asked for it to be opened for the soul.

00:25:37--> 00:25:39

They have to hold on and it's open for them

00:25:41--> 00:25:44

and they go by every single heaven

00:25:46--> 00:25:47

from one to the next.

00:25:50--> 00:25:54

Then Allah azza wa jal commands when they reach the last heaven

00:25:56--> 00:26:13

Hattah into here Biggie Isla sama is savvy. Then they reach the seventh heaven. And Allah azza wa jal says Oct o kitab. Abdi fi nd Yin write the name of my soul in a lien.

00:26:15--> 00:26:18

I'm gonna tell you something scary about Ilene and about St. Jean.

00:26:20--> 00:26:27

You know what Allah said about both of those two things in the Quran, right? What's the thing Allah said about both of them after he mentioned inequitable of Allah?

00:26:28--> 00:26:35

La vie, inequitable for gelila VCG What did Allah azza wa jal say about both of them

00:26:36--> 00:26:42

And then he sees for inner who he is mero he hears the sound of the footsteps of the sandals of his people as they walk away from the grief.

You imagine this they buried him they've shroud they've washed the body. They've wrapped it, they've put the body in the grave. They've covered the soil. They've said what they're going to say. And now they walk away and maybe the last people to walk away or their relatives, right. The last people to walk away

00:31:07--> 00:31:12

He says, I read the book of Allah I believed in it.

00:31:14--> 00:31:16

And I held it to be true.

00:31:23--> 00:31:27

And he said that they repeat in some of the narrations. It's mentioned that they repeat it again

00:31:28--> 00:31:34

Murghab bookmatched Enoch Manabi you? Who is your Lord and what is your religion and who is your prophet?

00:32:02--> 00:32:14

until a voice cries out from the heavens, and sadaqa Abdi my slave told the truth for every show who mean agenda well be so who mean agenda with the Hula, hula dab and eel agenda,

00:32:15--> 00:32:17

make his bed a bed from gender

00:32:19--> 00:32:21

and make his clothing the clothing of gender

00:32:22--> 00:32:34

and open to him a door to gender and a door that allows the fragrance and the environment of Jana to come into his grave.

00:32:38--> 00:32:48

So then he can smell the fragrance of it, the gentle any wind of it, the breeze blows upon him and the fragrance of gender.

00:32:49--> 00:33:08

While you've settled level field poverty he Magda Vasari, then his grave is made as wide as his eye can see. So from it doesn't become like this small space. It becomes so wide that as far as his eye can see he can only see the space that he's resting in and in his grave.

00:33:09--> 00:33:11

Then there comes to him a man

00:33:12--> 00:33:24

Roger Stone has an old watch with a really handsome face has an associate with nice clothing valuable rare with a nice fragrance

00:33:25--> 00:33:28

and it said to him, a bishop

He says, May Allah give you good? Who are you?

00:34:06--> 00:34:09

Your face is like a face of someone who's bringing good news to me.

00:34:10--> 00:34:14

He says an AMA Luca sada and the righteous deeds that you did.

00:34:18--> 00:34:26

He said, follow Allah Hema ILM took her in contest sorry and Fatah. Atilla bowtie and female sia tila.

00:34:27--> 00:34:32

He says I know you that you were fast to obey Allah and you were slow to disobey Allah.

00:34:34--> 00:34:36

Then a door is open to him from Jana

00:34:38--> 00:34:39

and adore from the fire.

00:34:40--> 00:34:45

And it said to him, this is your place in the fire if you disobeyed Allah.

00:34:47--> 00:34:51

But Allah has replaced that place for you with a better place.

00:34:52--> 00:35:00

And he shows him he sees his place in the hellfire. That is the place that Allah had put for you in Johanna. But Allah has

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

replaced it with a better place

00:35:05--> 00:35:09

and when he sees his place in gender he says, Rob be akademisk

00:35:10--> 00:35:14

My lord make the hour come quickly.

00:35:16--> 00:35:18

My lord make the hour come quickly.

00:35:21--> 00:35:37

As for the disbelieving slave, when he's about to leave this world and about to face the Acura, there come down angels who are relying on she that severe and harsh. Their faces are dark they have with them.

00:35:40--> 00:35:42

They have with them a sackcloth from hellfire.

00:35:44--> 00:36:03

They sit around him as far as the eye can see. Then that comes the angel of death and the Angel of Death sits at his hand and says a year to her Nestle kabisa or evil filthy salt. Or hurrah, je la Sahadi Mina Allah he woke up, come out from Allah to Allah has anger

00:36:04--> 00:36:12

and fury. Allah is furious and Allah is angry with you come out to Allah's wrath and Allah is anger

00:36:16--> 00:36:24

Fatah rock, fy jsat heat and then the soul it tries to split through the body tries to escape through every part of the body.

00:36:27--> 00:36:30

And the angel rips it out like

00:36:32--> 00:36:51

a skewer is ripped through wet wool. Imagine if you had a sharp skewer with many sharp pieces on it. And you had it wrapped around a piece of wet wool and you rip the screw out. All the wool rips the whole body inside the veins, the nerves

00:36:53--> 00:36:55

it said for to cook

00:36:57--> 00:36:58


00:37:00--> 00:37:07

any it said that what happens is that the the veins and the nerves break apart

00:37:12--> 00:37:16

and the scream is heard by every angel between the heavens and the earth.

00:37:18--> 00:37:39

And as for the angels in the heavens, the doors of the heavens are closed. And the person doesn't find a single door by which to reach the heavens. And every time they pass by an angel the angel say who is this evil soul? It is so unsolved the son of songs when they call him by the worst names that he's known in this world

00:37:40--> 00:37:43

until he comes to the summit dunya the lowest heaven

00:37:46--> 00:37:59

and it's first after Hoby it said Can he enter to go to the highest heaven to have his name recorded. Fella you have to hula hoop is not open for him. Then the messenger so I sell and recited the iron

00:38:01--> 00:38:09

law like to factor hula hoops of wobble summer while I had her own agenda had to really gel Gemma roofie sand Millfield.

00:38:10--> 00:38:18

Those people the door of the heavens will never be open for them. And they will never enter Jannah until the camel goes through the eye of a needle.

00:38:19--> 00:38:36

And then Allah azza wa jal says oke to Wilkey turbo who FISI G, write his name in SI g, in the lowest part of the Earth, fell out of the sofa in the lowest part of the earth. Then Allah azza wa jal said, Are you do AB De La

00:38:37--> 00:39:15

Rue return my servant to the earth. And once again minha HELOC to home Wi Fi her or a woman her original home Tara and okra. It's from the earth that I created them and it's to the earth that I returned them and it's from the earth I will bring them forth one more time. So do the angels carry the soul down to the body they don't. They cast down the soul from the highest place and from the from the lowest heaven and in their highest place. Remember the lowest heaven is covered by stars. And in the place of the stars. They throw the soul down to the earth they just throw it and they let it fall.

00:39:18--> 00:39:22

Had taka feed yesterday until the soul smashes into the body

00:39:25--> 00:39:35

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he recited the NEMA heartwarming Asana feta Kapha of five Altair will be rid of the mechanics say

00:39:36--> 00:39:48

whoever makes a partner with Allah we should have Kabila it's as though they were thrown from the heavens. So the bird snatch them or the wind carries them to a far off place.

00:39:49--> 00:39:56

Then the soul is put back into the body and the person hears the footsteps of their relatives walk away from the grief.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

Then the two angels come

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

are severe in their nature. And they shake him in, they make him sit up. And they say to him Murghab book Who is your Lord? They are called or

00:40:12--> 00:40:12


00:40:13--> 00:40:24

This word Ha is a word that you say when you know something, but you can't bring it out. It's like what you see when you know the answer to something, but the answer doesn't come.

00:40:27--> 00:40:32

Like you know it, you know, it's it's there, but you just you can't bring yourself to say it.

00:40:34--> 00:40:35

I don't know.

00:40:36--> 00:40:55

He says, I don't know. Now the question is, did he not know that Allah was his Lord? Of course he did. And he almost every single individual on this earth, certainly the majority of the kuffaar they know that Allah subhanaw taala is their Lord, the issue is they don't worship Him or they don't

00:40:57--> 00:41:13

enter into his religion, but they know that that Allah is my Lord. But now in this moment where he's desperate to bring the answer, Allah doesn't let him say the answer. He can't bring it. It's like, I know, I know the answer to this question, but

00:41:14--> 00:41:39

I don't know. He can't say it until he says, I don't know. Because his doubts and his lack of conviction now they come out before it didn't come out. Maybe before if you asked, you know, if there's a life after death, and you get questioned, Who is your Lord what will you say? You say Allah, what are inside Ulta human halacha Salah wa T will outlay a call on Allah? If they asked Who created the heavens and the earth? They say Allah.

00:41:41--> 00:41:52

But in the grave in that moment, he can't answer it. And that's why he says ha, like, I have I know he's stuttering he's trying to say it but he can't see it.

00:41:55--> 00:42:03

And that's why some of the narrations mentioned fella Yeah daddy with me he he's not guided to be able to say Allah's name.

00:42:07--> 00:42:19

What after that, it's when he's asked about the profit PsycINFO at least and he's not able to be able to see the profits name slicer. So again, he's asked what my dean, what's your religion? He says, ha, ha.

00:42:20--> 00:42:21

I don't know.

00:42:23--> 00:42:34

Then it said to him Murta cooled off the matter cooled off he had originally led the board's Fe come What do you say about this man that was sent to you. He can't say his name. He can't see the name of the prophets I send them

00:42:39--> 00:42:42

it is said to him Mohammed. He says

00:42:45--> 00:42:46

lottery I don't know.

00:42:47--> 00:42:51

submitted to NASA coluna che and Falcon to who?

00:42:52--> 00:43:30

This is powerful. He says I heard the people saying something and I said it as many possibilities. The Mona Lisa heard the people saying so he said but many people in their false religion. They're just following what they heard somebody else say that's where Allah azza wa jal blamed them for the Tucker lead. That is the tech lead in the issues of etiquette following people blindly in the matters of belief. What either key letter who would tell the aroma Anzahl Hola, Carlo Bella Tabby, Roma, el Fein Ali Baba Anna if it said to them follow what Allah revealed. They say I follow what my father used to do.

00:43:32--> 00:43:42

I will Oh can lie Hakuna che and well, I don't, even though their fathers didn't understand anything and were not guided. So when they blindly followed their fathers

00:43:44--> 00:43:55

and they blindly followed what other people said he admits in the grave. Submit to NASA colonna che and furcal to I heard people say something and I just said what people said

00:43:56--> 00:44:09

many people like this even in Islam. When you ask them why are you a Muslim? What is Islam mean to you? Send me I don't know say a Corona che and for call to I heard people say La ilaha illAllah. So I said it

00:44:11--> 00:44:38

and the person doesn't understand. So this is very important. This is from the many evidences that you must understand your religion for yourself, especially electrical the beliefs in Allah, the beliefs in Eman that you might you must understand it for yourself. You must not be someone who says I heard my dad say to me I'm a Muslim so I'm a Muslim. Or I heard people say the Prophet Muhammad sighs him is true but I don't even know who he was. Because in the grave it will come out

00:44:44--> 00:44:46

then a caller calls from the heavens

00:44:47--> 00:44:59

and caliber Abdi or and Canada in some generations that my slave has lied for every shoe level Mera naam worth the Hula, hula bad and Ilana so

00:45:00--> 00:45:12

Prepare for him a bit of fire and open for him a door from the fire. So the heat and the poison of the fire comes out and his grave what you will die Jaco la he covered

00:45:15--> 00:45:18

his grave is made so constricted

00:45:20--> 00:45:24

that his ribs crush against each other his ribs go into each other.

00:45:27--> 00:45:34

Then a man comes, Kirby her watch with an evil face an ugly face, can't be healthy, an ugly clothes.

00:45:38--> 00:45:39

He has a horrible smell.

00:45:41--> 00:45:44

And he says, abs shareability so look,

00:45:46--> 00:45:51

take the tidings of what is going to make you you and make you sad or make you

00:45:52--> 00:45:53

feel terrible.

00:45:54--> 00:45:55

This is the day you are promised.

00:45:58--> 00:46:09

He says you may Allah give you evil What have you brought? Who are you? Your face is a face that looks like you've come with evil. He says an American hobby. I am your evil deeds.

00:46:12--> 00:46:25

For wala Hema I live to Illa koonta bowtie and anti Tila Sadie and Illa Marcia Tila for what by Allah I knew that you are slow to obey Allah and quick to disobey Allah.

00:46:27--> 00:46:31

Such as Allah Who chakra So may Allah give you evil

00:46:35--> 00:46:36

then this person

00:46:41--> 00:46:42

he is struck.

00:46:44--> 00:46:45

He struck

00:46:48--> 00:46:56

a striking that every that makes the earth shudder and everything on the heavens and the earth hears it except to the human being.

00:46:58--> 00:47:16

And he's struck so hard, that he screams a scream that everything hears it except a human being. Why? Because the prophets like some said Lola and fennel, if it were not for the fact that you would not Bury Your Dead, I would have made dua for Allah to make you hear something of the punishment of the grief.

00:47:25--> 00:47:27

everyone hears it, except the human being in the gym.

00:47:28--> 00:47:39

Then a door from the fire is open, and a bed of fire is made for him. And what does he say in this? And I to be honest with you, I believe this is one of the most profound parts of the Hadith.

00:47:41--> 00:47:56

This he's just been beaten, at least some of the durations mentioned twice or more. He's been beaten with. He's been beaten with a beating that made the whole everything in the heavens and the earth heard his screen, except to human beings in the gym.

00:47:58--> 00:48:05

And he's been burned with fire. And he's lying on a bed of fire with clothing from fire, his ribs are crushed against themselves.

00:48:07--> 00:48:11

The poison of Jahannam is coming into his mouth and his nose,

00:48:12--> 00:48:16

the door of Jahannam he can see Jahannam from his grave.

00:48:17--> 00:48:18

What does he ask Allah for?

00:48:20--> 00:48:22

He asks Allah will Allah let me stay here?

00:48:24--> 00:48:28

That's the most profound thing. He begs Allah to let him stay there.

00:48:30--> 00:48:37

Rob Billa, Tecumseh My lord, allow me to stay here don't make the day of judgment call.

00:48:38--> 00:48:54

Because he knows what is coming is worse and worse and worse. Could you imagine someone in that state in that pain in that suffering, and he's making to aiya Allah let me stay in my place, I don't leave, I want to stay here I want to be here.

00:48:57--> 00:48:58

That's something to think about.

00:49:00--> 00:49:17

It's a profound Wallahi very, very profound, that a person in that situation in that level of torture and punishment is begging Allah to let them stay. Because they know that every single thing that's coming to them after that is worse and worse and worse.

00:49:18--> 00:49:27

But your body's mentioned here is the Catherine. In some of the generations, it's mentioned alfalfa and either the wicked person but in reality,

00:49:28--> 00:49:31

what happens to the disobedient Muslim?

00:49:33--> 00:49:38

I believe that the stronger opinion here is that the disobedient Muslim is not mentioned in either of these two.

00:49:39--> 00:49:52

Rather, the disobedient Muslim is left like that. So that you remain in fear and you don't know because neither have you. And I done the deeds to be like that righteous Muslim.

00:49:53--> 00:50:00

And we hope that we don't end our life like that Catherine, but we don't know where we sit in

00:50:00--> 00:50:33

between those two things, and it's narrated the Prophet size and passed by two people who were Muslim. And he said in now Houma, you are the Bernie Wallah, you are the beneficiary of these two people are being punished, but they're not being punished for something people think it's a major sin. As for one of them, he didn't use to keep himself clean when he went to the toilet, he didn't use to stop the urine from splashing upon his clothes. And as for the other one, he used to spread rumors between the people and he made people dislike each other by saying he said, and she said

00:50:35--> 00:50:38

that it's worth us to just take a moment to look at

00:50:39--> 00:50:48

the reasons for the punishment of the grave or some of the reasons for the punishment of the grave. And the reasons for being saved from

00:50:49--> 00:50:51

the punishment of the grief.

00:51:00--> 00:51:03

As we mentioned, one of them that is mentioned in the hadith

00:51:06--> 00:51:10

is that the person doesn't keep themselves clean when going to the toilet.

00:51:12--> 00:51:54

I'm sure I don't know how this Masjid is. But I'm really always shocked about our Masjid in Newcastle when I go and get it, that the bathrooms are in a terrible state. There is a brother in our masjid and gates and Allah bless him. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to to give him the blessings of the grave because of what he does for keeping domestically Subhanallah he cleans that bathroom, how many times a day. And still you go inside of it, Wallah, you see it is covered in that asset. And you say to the people, this is the Muslims who use the bathroom, they don't know how to use the bathroom properly, I don't know what they do. I don't know how it's even possible to make

00:51:54--> 00:51:55

such a mess in the bathroom.

00:51:56--> 00:52:10

And this bathroom is cleaned. Again, the brother will go clean it again, you go in an hour later, if it's busy, you go in an hour later is dirty again. People don't keep themselves clean, and they don't pay attention to keeping themselves clean.

00:52:12--> 00:52:41

The second thing is spreading Anamika spreading what stories and rumors about people. So most people do it innocently. But they're just always concerned with what other people are doing. They always thinking about what other people are doing. Or you know that brother I saw, you know, I heard about that brother, and just going back and forth, back and forth until people until people start to dislike each other or hate each other because of what has been spread between the people.

00:52:49--> 00:52:57

From those two reasons to be punished in the grave, is a person who doesn't pray with water who prays without water

00:53:01--> 00:53:03

who prays without wood

00:53:04--> 00:53:17

and this happens to people people are embarrassed they break the will do in the prayer. They don't go and make although again I just finished my prayer and then I'll go personal is punishing the grief from this is that a person passed by an oppressed individual and didn't help them.

00:53:19--> 00:53:23

And he they saw someone being oppressed and they were able to do something and they didn't help them

00:53:27--> 00:53:32

telling a lie that reaches the horizons how many people do this

00:53:33--> 00:53:43

telling a lie that reaches the horizons? Now if you lie on social media will lie that lie reaches a lot of thought that reaches every country every place

00:53:48--> 00:54:01

the one who reads the Quran or who read the Quran and then sleeps on it in the night and doesn't act upon it in the day any Neither does he pray with it at night nor does he act upon it in the day

00:54:04--> 00:54:06

the one who devours Riba

00:54:09--> 00:54:10

is also mentioned

00:54:16--> 00:54:18

the one who left giving this occur

00:54:21--> 00:54:24

the one who devours haram

00:54:33--> 00:54:37

the one who devours Riba, the one who eats from the wealth of the orphan

00:54:39--> 00:54:41

and he there are so many that I mentioned

00:54:42--> 00:54:44

the one who harms the Muslims

00:54:54--> 00:54:59

Well, I mean there are literally I have lists of any I can see lists any of any you can mention 70 reads

00:55:00--> 00:55:12

insanity that I mentioned within the Hadith for the person or the people who are punished in the grief. In general, how do you summarize it, every single sin a person does has a potential to be a reason to be punished in the grief.

00:55:13--> 00:55:23

Every sin that a person does has a potential to be a reason why people are punished under grief. And then there are specific reasons. I think I mentioned them at times before.

00:55:26--> 00:55:28

And we mentioned the only a lot of them.

00:55:44--> 00:55:46

Nearby don't pay you mentioned a long list of them.

00:56:06--> 00:56:09

And those people and I wanted to mention this one particular

00:56:10--> 00:56:21

from all the ones I wanted to mention, I wanted to mention this issue of rumors and telling lies that reach the horizon, and also harming other people's on any harming other people's reputation.

00:56:22--> 00:56:36

Whether it's false rumors about them, whether it is exposing their sins, whatever it is, but a person who takes away from the honor of people Yeah, and who harms people's honor.

00:56:38--> 00:56:50

The people who took from the war, booty, and so on and so forth. And there are many, many, many examples, which are mentioned within a hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. What about the reasons to be saved from

00:56:51--> 00:56:52

the punishment of the grave?

00:56:55--> 00:56:57

What about the reasons to be saved from

00:56:59--> 00:57:03

the punishment of the grave? So again, what we would say is, we would say that every single

00:57:05--> 00:57:06

we would say,

00:57:07--> 00:57:28

that every single good deed that you do could be a reason to be saved from the punishment of the grief. And every good deed you do could be considered to be a means to be saved, just like every sin could be a potential. So every good deed that you do could be a reason to be saved. But there are some things that are mentioned specifically.

00:57:31--> 00:57:34

There are some things that are mentioned specifically.

00:57:35--> 00:57:41

The first is making dua to Allah to save you from the punishment of the grief.

00:57:45--> 00:57:53

The general the prophets I seldom since he was told about the punishment of the grave, He never stopped asking Allah azza wa jal

00:57:54--> 00:57:55

to be saved from it.

00:57:58--> 00:58:09

He never stopped asking Allah subhanaw taala in his Salah before the end of the Tisha hood Allahumma in the although become an Adobe Jahannam woman either will cover woman fitness in my hair will know that.

00:58:11--> 00:58:13

For me shatter the fitness intimacy had to jump

00:58:14--> 00:58:16

from the reasons to be saved

00:58:18--> 00:58:22

is to recite to Abba Kalevi be Eddie him Mulk.

00:58:24--> 00:58:29

Tabata Kalevi big hill milk to recite Surah Al Mulk.

00:58:32--> 00:58:33


00:58:34--> 00:58:42

reciting Surah to milk before you go to sleep, and some of the narration sort of note and also sort of sage there before you go to sleep.

00:58:46--> 00:58:48

The Prophet SAW Selim said about sort of milk,

00:58:50--> 00:58:51

here learning.

00:58:53--> 00:59:02

It is the one that prevents and it is the one that saves, it saves a person from the punishment of the grief by reciting it.

00:59:13--> 00:59:23

There are some things that a person can't control and it doesn't come in their hands that save them from the punishment of the grave. The one who dies from a disease of the stomach,

00:59:24--> 00:59:34

the one who dies later Jumada or yomo Jomar, who dies on the day of Jomar or the night before July any Thursday night or a Friday.

00:59:36--> 00:59:39

The person who dies for the sake of Allah the martyr for the sake of Allah.

00:59:41--> 00:59:56

And there are some that is not any it might be. It might be something a person does, but it's not really possible for a person to it might not be possible for a person to get that opportunity like a rebound. The person who guards the borders of the Muslim lands

01:00:00--> 01:00:07

The Prophet sighs him said every cooler make it cooler will make it every person. Their deeds are sealed except for El Mirage.

01:00:09--> 01:00:18

The one who guards the border lands, the borders of the Muslim lands. This person's deeds are increased until Yama Kiana, and he will be saved from the fitna of the grief.

01:00:23--> 01:00:25

These are some of the mentions or some of the things that

01:00:27--> 01:00:55

are mentioned with regard to being saved from the punishment of the grief. My point in all of this is we only just spoke about the punishment of the grief and we only spoke about it a little bit. But what was my point in all of this was one thing. All of these points have things you can do now, to prepare. That was my point in all of this. That's why I chose the hydrothermal Boliden or Isaac, instead of another Hadith or instead of talking about Genelle they all of these things have things you can prepare right now.

01:00:56--> 01:01:21

You can prepare. You said Peter Allahu levena Amman will bill Coley savety Phil hayati dunya Phil Acura. If Allah makes you firm upon La ilaha illallah in this world, then Allah azza wa jal will make you firm in answering those questions in the grief. But you have to live La Ilaha in the LA and La Ilaha. Illallah is not just something you say

01:01:22--> 01:01:24

La Ilaha illa Allah is something you live

01:01:26--> 01:01:45

a person watching us in the beginning that a person who lives upon something guys upon it, you live all the time, upon saying La ilaha illallah Upon asking Allah for safety upon seeking refuge with Allah from the punishment of the grave and reciting Surah Al Al Mulk, and you're doing what you're doing whatever you can.

01:01:47--> 01:01:54

That person in sha Allah hooter, Allah is preparing for the souls final journey. As for the person who doesn't do it, that person has not prepared.

01:01:56--> 01:02:02

And also the person thinks about preparing in terms of the dunya as we said, like they will see having a written their

01:02:04--> 01:02:09

instructions for what they do what the people do, after all their advice, what people do when they die.

01:02:10--> 01:02:13

And a person prepares their last will and testament

01:02:14--> 01:02:24

about especially if they have property they own or they have money, like a significant amount of money they earn, how should that be divided? And what should it be done, what should be done with it?

01:02:26--> 01:03:07

A person remembers frequently, the destroyer of desires, and they remember frequently, they status in terms of where they are at this moment in time in terms of good deeds and bad deeds. They remember the souls final journey, and because of that, they take points of action, I'm not going to do this, I'm not going to do this, I'm not going to do this, I'm going to try and do this and do this and do this. And by this Inshallah, to Allah, a person can prepare for that journey. There's a lot to talk about in this topic. I've got a couple of videos on it, which are more detailed and a bit more organized. We have a video, something I think it's called something like if I die tonight,

01:03:07--> 01:03:24

or if you die tonight, something like that. And there's also a number of videos on the hereafter and the souls journey and the topic of death. So those have more details on this one, but this is just again, a summary and a reminder, hello Allahu Allah wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala early he also happy

01:03:27--> 01:03:30

we have a 10 minute break. Okay.
