Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala somebody lo Wilde early he was your domain

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

so the next session we have now is for about one hour within

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

do not ask actually

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

raise your hand, if you have you've never seen

00:00:45--> 00:00:48

a deceased person a dead person, raise your hand if you've never seen one.

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

Okay, very few. Most of you have seen person who's passed away

00:01:06--> 00:01:10

okay, a person is known to be to be dead.

00:01:11--> 00:01:19

When the soul has left the body, when the soul leaves, the body won't come back in to the body to bring them alive. That won't happen.

00:01:22--> 00:01:34

As you know, in the Hadith as it, Radi Allahu anhu, that the soul will go on a journey go up to the heavens, and then we'll be turned to the body and then placed into the grave and then there will be questions asked.

00:01:37--> 00:01:39

However, with the development

00:01:41--> 00:01:53

or advancement in in medicine, this is not something that this is was necessarily discussed in the detail that it is now when do you pronounce or when do you know a person is actually dead? When When did it end?

00:01:55--> 00:01:58

Because Is there a gauge or measurement you say yet the soul is gone now.

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

I mean,

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

I'm sure that you've seen clips, or links that a person was in the

00:02:09--> 00:02:17

been buried. And they heard Knox and not too long ago, I heard this and they weren't he was still alive, but they couldn't get to a Cook University who died there. But

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

they actually thought the person was dead, but they weren't.

00:02:22--> 00:02:31

So there's no gauge there's nothing really you can measure to say right now the soul has gone accepted that you can physically see that, you know, there's maybe a change in the skin,

00:02:32--> 00:02:40

heartbeat and flow of blood. And it's certain tests, you can say that the physically, physically that they've died, that they are dead.

00:02:41--> 00:02:57

Can't say what you can see the song go or anything like that. So Islamically when when do we pronounce it the person is dead, as opposed to saying, well, they're medically dead? Is that Is there a conflict between the two or they want the same thing.

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

Because Islamically we want to say that we want to give life every chance.

00:03:07--> 00:03:30

We want to give life every chance to exist. So it can't involve us taking the life of the person because that would be considered murder, can't take the life of a person, just because they're not working properly or their health isn't that good. Or they decide that, you know, I'm too sick, I don't want to live with a sick person. So therefore, you know, you're going to topics like euthanasia.

00:03:32--> 00:03:37

So, what Islamically when do we discern as to when a person is actually dead.

00:03:39--> 00:03:39


00:03:41--> 00:03:50

this is an issue which of late now, I mean, in the past 50 years, or maybe more than that there might have been speaking about in in greater depth.

00:03:52--> 00:04:17

Because of the advancements of, of medicine, we can, you know, start talking about well if the person's brain is functional, or whether their heart is functional. And even if their heart is not functional, has serious issues that can there be a transplant, you can change the heart that person give them another person's heart and that they they may live it and they will live within Allah

00:04:19--> 00:04:24

so you may find that their heart isn't functioning anymore. It's you require

00:04:26--> 00:04:27

a machine

00:04:28--> 00:04:31

to ensure that blood is pumped around the body but the brain is fine.

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

Is that person did

00:04:35--> 00:04:38

the fact that they're depending on the machine to keep them alive,

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

be it and of course

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

or is it their heart and their body is fine except but however, their brain is damaged. Maybe they're involved in an accident or they they were suffocated or something like that their brain was deprived of oxygen for example, and then they now suffered from severe brain death.

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

damage. And if they come around again, in what state they would be,

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


00:05:09--> 00:05:12

Now, again, it's a long, it's a long discussion.

00:05:14--> 00:05:16

However, we can

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

say in short,

00:05:21--> 00:05:26

that with regards to the heart, if you're able, I mean, if you take the necessarily unnecessary

00:05:28--> 00:05:33

procedures, and if, for example, evolved in a heart transplant, and that can be done.

00:05:36--> 00:05:44

We can say it's permissible if if you feel like that, to save a life of a person, if you take that there is an opinion to say that you can transplant body parts

00:05:45--> 00:05:53

and the brain is fine, and you can transplant the heart, then you can do that and the person will live even though that person's heart

00:05:58--> 00:06:02

is not functional anymore. It's not functional anymore. So there's a solution for that.

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

So just because their heart is not working properly, it doesn't mean that they're dead. That's the point being made.

00:06:09--> 00:06:14

If there's no option, there's an optional transplant, you can't do anything.

00:06:15--> 00:06:18

You know, we'll say nature but Allah azza wa jal decree will take its

00:06:20--> 00:06:21

will take

00:06:22--> 00:06:32

us in whatever direction that we're going in. And until that happens, if they happen to have another, if it's a heart attack, then they will die at that time, up until that time, we give that person every chance to live.

00:06:35--> 00:06:54

As for the brain, now, for example, it's a bit more complicated, it's very much more complicated with the brain because our knowledge of a long list of what they say what we really know about the brain, they say what we know, being very generous, we probably know about the functions and how the brain works, we know about 10%, Allah knows best.

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

You can't trans, you can't transplant a brain

00:06:59--> 00:06:59

can't You

00:07:01--> 00:07:05

can't take the brain food person and then give them another brain that are unable to do that.

00:07:08--> 00:07:12

However, that person's brain has been damaged to, to whatever extent

00:07:13--> 00:07:16

the rest of their body functions or fine hearts fine.

00:07:18--> 00:07:22

However, it reaches a stage where if they can recover to whatever,

00:07:23--> 00:07:31

to whatever level, then we give them that chance they will live. And if they live, and then they wake up and come up, they regain consciousness.

00:07:33--> 00:07:40

But they're not the same person, they have suffered some brain damage, they will need help, then this is the test that Allah azza wa jal has tested them with.

00:07:43--> 00:07:48

The question mark now is, is if a person has suffered brain damage,

00:07:49--> 00:07:50


00:07:51--> 00:07:51


00:07:54--> 00:07:57

without machines, they will remain the rest of their lives on that?

00:07:59--> 00:08:00

Do we say now that that person is

00:08:02--> 00:08:03

brain dead? If you like

00:08:04--> 00:08:06

that it's permissible to turn off the machine?

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

But it's not be considered murder? Because their soul is the body's is moving? It's the heart is pumping?

00:08:18--> 00:08:21

Here, it is not a straightforward, yes or no.

00:08:23--> 00:08:53

Because what constitutes a person to be to bring be brain dead? And I guess that on topics like this, there's a person, a person whose knowledge of the Sharia wouldn't just merely take his own position and just say, This is what I think no, they would have to consult with medical doctors. And likewise, medical doctors would have to consult with should consult with Pivotal knowledge so that you can come to the correct conclusion. So you don't stop taking the lives of people incorrectly.

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

There is a paper that's written on it and

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

what I do because it's it's quite a long discussion, it's not just simply yes or no, what I'll do if you notice, I assume that you've all signed up for this. So we'll have your email addresses. I'll email the document for you to read

00:09:13--> 00:09:17

as an academic reading, but it is very beneficial. And it will give you an insight to how

00:09:18--> 00:09:26

it's complex as complicated issue, as a lot of factors to be taken into consideration for any one person to come to, to conclusion on.

00:09:27--> 00:09:36

It's straightforward in the points that has been made. And it has a very clear conclusion at the end as to how to tackle the problem or the the issue I should say.

00:09:37--> 00:09:38

In that however.

00:09:47--> 00:09:54

For circumstances, mistake, we will say we will say that the person is on the verge of dying, they have some

00:09:56--> 00:09:58

awareness of what is happening around themselves.

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

This is something that I was talking about earlier reasons for for integrations, if you like,

00:10:06--> 00:10:09

and reasons why people may go into bigger

00:10:15--> 00:10:23

this is also another point I mentioned, there are some just going back a little bit as a definition of what beta is.

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

Okay, so

00:10:29--> 00:10:31


00:10:33--> 00:10:38

wearing jackets is a bit yeah. Can it be that wearing jackets cannot be bigger?

00:10:40--> 00:10:47

No, it can't. But why Why can't be bigger because the Prophet Ellison didn't wear these kind of jackets, so why can't not be bigger? Okay, so

00:10:49--> 00:11:00

we have an understanding of what a B dies. And remember, Sharpie Rahmatullah Lee was great to have two famous books in our shelter, the one book is called elevator song, which is,

00:11:02--> 00:11:18

okay, there's nothing else. Because anyway, was gonna point with it, but you still can't see that. So the bottom line is, there's a song that is a very famous book called yet to song. And here's another very famous book of a famous book called Anwar, for God, which talks about the objectives of the Sharia.

00:11:20--> 00:11:26

And for him, that this definition here is one of the most comprehensive definitions of bigger

00:11:27--> 00:11:31

because there are many definitions of Buddha. But this is one of the most comprehensive

00:11:33--> 00:11:36

definitions and watertight definitions of video that we

00:11:38--> 00:11:42

that we can use. I'll leave that for a little while. So if you want to copy that down, you can

00:11:46--> 00:11:46


00:11:47--> 00:11:52

so. The next stage that we're going to talk about now is the arrival of death.

00:11:54--> 00:12:03

Now, the individual, this we're talking about from the person's perspective is that the death death is arriving to you, you personally.

00:12:05--> 00:12:15

What stage should you be in, just sit there, like you're waiting for us, the death will come and let's go to the next stage of our lives. Or what state of mind should I have?

00:12:18--> 00:12:27

Number one, we will say that you should have good thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala the inevitable is happening, that you are dying

00:12:30--> 00:12:33

and that you fail, you should have good thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala

00:12:34--> 00:12:37

the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, this hadith in Sahih Muslim

00:12:50--> 00:12:56

the prophet Elijah said, None of you should die, except without having good expectations

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

of Allah subhanaw taala

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

because the inevitable is happening now. You're going to die now Subhanallah there's no time for I should have an I should have and why and ifs and buts and

00:13:11--> 00:13:18

have good thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala that he's given. He's written your life to be like this, have hope in Allah subhanaw taala have a hope.

00:13:20--> 00:13:30

seek forgiveness. Ask Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness that oh that you have done wrong, or that you know of, or that you don't know.

00:13:31--> 00:13:34

So this will bring you in a state between hope and fear.

00:13:36--> 00:13:40

So you're in a state where you're having good expectations of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:13:41--> 00:13:54

Remember Allah subhanaw taala is generosity and His mercy, and that he is a pinata and is more merciful to His servants than any one of us could be to any of our own children whom we love.

00:13:55--> 00:14:03

Well, Words cannot express how we love our children, and what we would do for our children. Allah, Allah, Allah is more merciful than we can be to our own children.

00:14:05--> 00:14:11

Allah Santa is more merciful to His servants than we could ever be to our own children.

00:14:12--> 00:14:17

So have good thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala be in a state between hope and fear

00:14:18--> 00:14:40

that you have this hope. But at the same time, you don't think that's it and relaxed now. All those hedges and all those spots that I did and all that sadaqa that I gave, all those tests be, just be all that they're all that I did. And all the times I smiled at people that may be mixed with some of those actions,

00:14:41--> 00:14:46

that there was an element of React, maybe there's of showing off maybe, maybe I can't remember.

00:14:47--> 00:14:51

But at the time, I was aware of what I was doing. The fact that I can't remember

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

that I was actually showing off 15 years ago when I was fasting or praying may have actually invalidated

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


00:15:01--> 00:15:08

But I can't remember that I was showing off. I just remember that I did the action. I think it was an accepted action and that should be good enough.

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

However, Allah subhanaw taala does not forget.

00:15:12--> 00:15:16

And just because you forgot, doesn't mean that it didn't happen.

00:15:17--> 00:15:27

So you are asking Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness of things that you know of, you ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive you the things that you have forgotten and for sure that you have forgotten many things.

00:15:28--> 00:15:34

So you are in a state between a hopeful word Raja, in a state between hope and fear.

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

There is

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

an incident that the Prophet sallallahu Allah he was sending visited a young man

00:15:46--> 00:15:53

as a hobby or the lion, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him said, How do you feel?

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

And he said, Your rasool Allah, I have hope in Allah, and I fear my sins.

00:16:01--> 00:16:05

I have hope in Allah subhanaw taala, but I also have fear of my sins.

00:16:06--> 00:16:08

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:16:09--> 00:16:35

Les you just tell me and that these two qualities, which is essentially hope, of hoping Allah azza wa jal and fear of your sins, these two qualities will never come together in the heart of any one person at this particular time, when they're about to die, except that ALLAH subhanaw taala will give him or her that what they hope and protect them from that what they fear.

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

This hadith is in Funan Timothy

00:16:47--> 00:16:49

at this time also you should have

00:16:52--> 00:16:57

a feeling that you want and two that you love to meet Allah subhanaw taala

00:16:58--> 00:17:06

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in an authentic hadith, that whoever loves to meet Allah and Allah will love to meet him

00:17:07--> 00:17:12

and whoever hates to meet Allah, then Allah will hate to meet them

00:17:14--> 00:17:22

and only a person who because at the time of death, the reality of your life will become become clear.

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

Whether that is true or not, is that you know the statement

00:17:29--> 00:17:33

I thought I was going to die in my life flashed before my eyes.

00:17:36--> 00:17:37

I mean, that's not a hadith.

00:17:39--> 00:17:48

The reality of the statement may have some truth in Allahu Allah Medina. But if a person has a near death experience

00:17:51--> 00:17:54

maybe one person may feel like that another person may not I don't know.

00:17:55--> 00:17:57

But they say that my whole life flashed before me.

00:18:00--> 00:18:06

Maybe they they think about many things, certain thoughts come to their mind. Me regrets come to their mind.

00:18:08--> 00:18:11

Many things come to their mind. However, the true believer

00:18:12--> 00:18:39

when and this is not overconfident or being cocky or anything like that. But the person who knows that, that they have strived they have strived for Allah. They have been patient, not a guarantee that everything that they have done has been accepted, but they know that inshallah they have tried, they have strived, they've done their best. Yes, they have sins. coolibah Macatawa. All the sons of Adam has sins, however, that you want to meet Allah.

00:18:42--> 00:18:45

You want to meet Allah subhanaw taala to meet his reward,

00:18:46--> 00:18:51

to meet the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala is prepared for the believers in the hereafter.

00:18:54--> 00:18:58

As opposed to affirm you're an unrighteous person and evil person

00:18:59--> 00:19:02

who knows exactly what they've been doing in their lives.

00:19:04--> 00:19:05

They haven't repented.

00:19:06--> 00:19:09

They have no intention of repenting maybe.

00:19:10--> 00:19:14

And that they don't want to meet Allah because they know that they are carrying.

00:19:15--> 00:19:23

They know that they have oppressed so many people. These are the type of people you may find a person who loves to meet Allah and Allah is it and would love to meet that person.

00:19:25--> 00:19:31

Of course, have to make very clear that you are a human being how you love to meet Allah

00:19:32--> 00:19:36

isn't the same feeling that Allah will have to you because you are an abbot.

00:19:37--> 00:19:48

And Allah is Allah Allah, Allah is the Creator so we don't compare the two. In terms of how that love is going between us. You have to understand that the love Allah is Allah for His creation, isn't it?

00:19:50--> 00:19:56

In a way laser committed he che is not something we compare to anything that we imagined inside the creation

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

of a pot

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

Lesson is aware,

00:20:02--> 00:20:03

when they are dying, that they have

00:20:05--> 00:20:11

debts or rights that people have over them, they should make clear that these rights should be given to

00:20:13--> 00:20:18

to other people, that you don't want to die in a state where you owe people things.

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

So you should give instructions

00:20:24--> 00:20:27

you should give instructions to ensure that these rights are returned to people.

00:20:34--> 00:20:36

The Prophet sallallahu Allah who will send them

00:20:38--> 00:20:44

in a hadith which is narrated by a wolf or a Euro, or the Allahu Anhu. It is a Hadith reported by Buhari

00:20:46--> 00:21:13

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever had oppressed his brother, in his reputation in his wealth, let him remedy that let him fix that before the day of judgment comes. Because no dyrham No dinar, I know money, can't pay your way out of it will be accepted from that person. If he has good deeds, they will be taken from him, your good deeds will be given to him.

00:21:15--> 00:21:22

And if you do not have any good deeds that you can give to him, then his bad deeds will be taken away from him and that you will carry them.

00:21:24--> 00:21:38

And then the Prophet sallallahu as I mentioned, and another Hadith There's a very famous Hadith as well. It's also narrated by Audible who laid off putting a line the whole Hadith Can you read the whole Hadith? No, you can't. You can't write the entire Hadith I mentioned to you. But you may want to

00:21:40--> 00:21:43

maybe write the first few words of what you understood from the Hadith.

00:21:45--> 00:21:46


00:21:48--> 00:21:51

I'll break the trend and say Google it. No, I was a googling.

00:21:52--> 00:21:58

There's actually a site that you can say this was called Okay, it's a hadith search engine.

00:22:00--> 00:22:12

And it may be a little more adventurous going through that because a little more difficult to find artists. However, I'm sure you'll come across a hadith you've never seen before. So that's a benefit.

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

So if you use that sites Another con,

00:22:16--> 00:22:23

if you can get the gist of what I'm saying maybe one particular word because the word I'm seeing is how they translated it and you'll find it there which I think gives you the Arabic in English.

00:22:25--> 00:22:37

This hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the Companions attend the rune ml mirthless. Do you Do you know the one who is bankrupt? Do you know the bankrupt one?

00:22:38--> 00:22:56

How did the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu How did they answer it? Well, probably how you and I would answer it as well. The bankrupt one is well the one who is got no money was lost all of his money is going bankrupt. That's what we understand of amorphous or bankrupt person is

00:22:57--> 00:23:03

the Prophet sallallahu Allah He was said in no more Fliss, Amin Murthy that the bankrupt person and my Alma

00:23:04--> 00:23:11

is the one who will come on the Day of Judgment. Now we're still talking about what returning writes to people before you die.

00:23:12--> 00:23:50

That doesn't mean that I'm going to wait to my deathbed. And I'm suddenly going to blurt out, right? I owe him money. I said something wrong against him. No. From now, before you die, because when we're saying, we're talking about dying, we're talking about now before I die. Now, before I die, you should do these things. Should you have only good thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala? Only when, if you're on your deathbed? No, you have good thoughts about Allah, Israel, good expectations, high expectations at all times. You have hope and fear in Allah Azza all times. We're not talking about just when you die, because maybe the occasion doesn't come to you and who knows how you will

00:23:50--> 00:23:52

be at that particular time.

00:23:54--> 00:23:59

So these things, in fact, are applicable to all times of advice.

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

So the Prophet elation said that the true bankrupt person for my own is the one who comes on the day of judgment and that he or she will come with Salah and cm and Zika.

00:24:13--> 00:24:17

That person will come with the pillars of Islam.

00:24:18--> 00:24:35

They will come with the things which established our religion will make you a Muslim. The person will come with those things under their judgment. However, shatta marhaba, cassava, a Kalama Lucha cerca de MHADA

00:24:36--> 00:24:48

with redo what did she do? Swore this person cursed this person consumed unlawfully the money of this person spilled the blood of that person

00:24:50--> 00:24:52

hit a beat so and so.

00:24:54--> 00:24:55

And then what?

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

Then this what happens because of all of these things that they did

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


00:25:01--> 00:25:03

all of these will be taken away

00:25:04--> 00:25:10

all the good deeds they used to do because these bad deeds their good deeds are destroyed by these things because

00:25:11--> 00:25:32

they were unfair to others. It's okay you establishing the pillars of Islam, but then you start swearing and cursing and being unfair and oppressive. Your good deeds will then be diminished. Until depending on the amount of haram or evil you have committed, if all your hasnat that they are gone

00:25:33--> 00:25:39

then you will stop carrying the bad deeds and lightening lightening the load of the people that you were unfair to

00:25:46--> 00:25:53

I will say very quickly if you have water with you, I don't mind you drinking water because I was sent to you the don't drink. But if you have water with you want to drink water.

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

I say that because I was just gonna drink some coffee and I thought to myself I have to be fair.

00:26:04--> 00:26:05

Also another point

00:26:09--> 00:26:10


00:26:11--> 00:26:19

having a will or having a will. What does that was that well, this is a document or this is an instructions

00:26:24--> 00:26:26

that you should give to your family members

00:26:28--> 00:26:39

to remind them of Allah, how they should deal with these you die. If you've borrowed money from people, that your money will be returned or those debts should be returned to those people.

00:26:42--> 00:26:43

Javid ibn Abdullah,

00:26:45--> 00:26:47

the famous companion about the Allahu Anhu

00:26:50--> 00:26:53

reported that on the eve of the Battle of

00:26:55--> 00:26:59

his father summoned him and instructed him.

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

He said, they're going to the bathroom.

00:27:03--> 00:27:13

But I expect Navy myself to be from the first of the companions of rasool Allah salAllahu Alaihe salam to be martyred to be killed tomorrow.

00:27:14--> 00:27:22

And I'm not leaving after me any soul more dear to me the new except of course, the Messenger of Allah and he says I was talking to some

00:27:23--> 00:27:33

I owe some debts. So pay them off and take good care of your brothers and sisters. These were instructions that were given to his beloved ones.

00:27:34--> 00:27:35

Likewise, we should do the same.

00:27:37--> 00:27:41

And especially now, in times where if we are

00:27:44--> 00:27:47

in a situation where if I was to die

00:27:50--> 00:27:56

or when I die, that maybe my family members may do things which will be dis do things which are not according to the Sunnah.

00:27:57--> 00:28:14

displeasing to Allah may introduce some cultural behaviors have something written down, that I would like my burial to be or according to the Sunnah of Mohammed Elissa to Salem, do not transfer my body, for example to another country.

00:28:15--> 00:28:18

Do not while and scream over my death.

00:28:19--> 00:28:27

If you feel that maybe certain members of your family may take it this way. These are beneficial instructions that you should give your loved and close wants to educate them.

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

This is some general advice for the person that is is dying.

00:28:36--> 00:28:38

As for the person who's dying now,

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


00:28:41--> 00:28:47

those around him or her should prompt them with the Shahada.

00:28:49--> 00:28:53

The shahada is the statement of la ilaha illa. Allah the importance of the statement is,

00:28:54--> 00:29:06

as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam when Corona, or KLM, or hula in the Lord halogen, whoever's last statement is that Allah will enter the paradise.

00:29:09--> 00:29:29

So you ask Allah azza wa jal you asked Allah Subhana Allah to allow you to leave this dunya and the last statement that you make is literally named Allah. Make dua for this. And frequently say that Allah Illallah because who knows when Malecon mode when he will come and take your soul suddenly, but the last thing that you said was the ALA

00:29:31--> 00:29:36

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said prompt your dying wants to say La Ilaha illa Allah

00:29:37--> 00:29:44

whoever's last words before dying on a Allah and Allah will enter the gentleman, even if he's afflicted before that by punishment.

00:29:46--> 00:29:53

So there may be from the believers who go through some difficulties before they reach the Jannah.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

The Prophet this hadith is in Sahih Muslim

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

Notice when and

00:30:04--> 00:30:07

there's also this narration is narrated by

00:30:09--> 00:30:18

I've also eaten hoodie. And aloe vera also other narrations narrated by Abdullah and Mr. Rude or the hola one

00:30:19--> 00:30:27

with a similar meaning Latino motel con Latino, tell teen for them for you to say to them to say that Allah and Allah

00:30:29--> 00:30:42

a very subtle point and that is the fact that you are saying, la la la la la la la ilaha illa Allah is good for you the fact that but you want the dead personal, not dead, the dying person, the dying, but you want them to say if possible.

00:30:44--> 00:30:49

The fact that you're saying is okay, you reminding them but the point of the reminders that you want them to try and say it if they can.

00:30:50--> 00:30:54

Okay, that's the point prompt them to say it if they're able to.

00:31:02--> 00:31:02


00:31:05--> 00:31:13

because the first set of things that were mentioning was from the perspective of the person who is on their deathbed, these are now more like

00:31:16--> 00:31:23

for those who happen to be around the dying person, maybe some responsibilities is upon you to try and prompt them to say the Shahada.

00:31:24--> 00:31:26

Likewise make dua supplicate

00:31:29--> 00:31:32

sincerely for them, give them glad tidings.

00:31:35--> 00:31:37

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:31:38--> 00:31:55

he said in a hadith which is narrated by Onselen the prophet Elisha and when you are with a sick or dying person say good things, I when you make a deal, because the angels endorsed by what you say, by what you say by saying I mean.

00:31:56--> 00:31:57


00:31:58--> 00:32:02

whatever good things that you want to say you should say to them, so that therefore

00:32:03--> 00:32:06

that the mullah echo will also say I mean for what you are saying.

00:32:12--> 00:32:13


00:32:14--> 00:32:21

you should ask them and try to tell them to ask Allah subhanaw taala is forgiveness, seek Allah's virgins forgiveness?

00:32:22--> 00:32:35

Say a Stubblefield Allah, Allah Allah homophily Wilhemina and if we go back to the statement of what the Prophet sallallaahu Ali he was sending them when he was saying as a shadow the Allah Juan Jose Allah humbug fully what

00:32:37--> 00:32:40

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asking for forgiveness, he has no sin.

00:32:42--> 00:32:46

But he is awesome still asked for forgiveness underlies it at his mercy to his dying moments.

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


00:32:50--> 00:33:05

likewise ourselves, to ask Allah for forgiveness, asked for his mercy. Because none of us will enter the joy none of us enter the Paradise because of our deeds, but only because of Allah is within his mercy that we enter the Jannah.

00:33:06--> 00:33:10

So ask Allah subhanaw taala for his forgiveness, and for His mercy.

00:33:13--> 00:33:13


00:33:15--> 00:33:17

if that person is to leave this life

00:33:27--> 00:33:36

there are certain things that you should do. There's one thing that is written concerning, similar to your scene, the recitation of the scene.

00:33:38--> 00:33:39

Many people

00:33:40--> 00:33:50

what do they do with sewage he has seen they will start reciting Surah Yaseen when they've been been invited to somebody's house and as a deceased, the beginning reciting Surah,

00:33:51--> 00:33:52

recite Surah Yasin.

00:33:56--> 00:34:03

The rest of the recitation of Surah Yaseen is there's a narration, however, the narration is weak.

00:34:07--> 00:34:09

And concerning sort of who you're seeing

00:34:12--> 00:34:15

the narration does say, when the person is dying

00:34:16--> 00:34:19

to recite Surah Yaseen when the person is dying with it.

00:34:21--> 00:34:23

Because of the weakness of the Hadith,

00:34:24--> 00:34:27

you shouldn't do it when the person is dying

00:34:29--> 00:34:37

moreso when the person has actually died, because there's absolutely no foundation for that at all. However, for whatever reason.

00:34:39--> 00:35:00

And it goes back to what I was mentioning earlier, that sometimes people just to just to find anything, just to ease the situation to make them feel better, or to do something to make the deceased or the dying person to feel better. Only do that what was legislated for us that what will benefit you and that will benefit the dying with a deceased person. Don't think that

00:35:00--> 00:35:15

You couldn't do something or say something, or offer anything that the Prophet lasers and didn't do, or didn't advise us to do. Do you think you're going to benefit a dead person or dying person? Something that the Prophet Ellison didn't tell us to do?

00:35:16--> 00:35:26

is not possible. Do you think that you're going to end, you know, add something to the deen of Allah azza wa jal that somehow the Prophet sallallahu I didn't tell us to do.

00:35:27--> 00:35:44

As a believer or the Allahu Anhu He informed us that no, even the flying of a bird in the sky will pass us by, except that the Prophet sallallahu Iveson will give us some form of knowledge about that. If there was something that we needed,

00:35:45--> 00:36:03

and even the statement of the Prophet and Islam that there's nothing that will bring you closer to God except that I've told you about it and there's nothing that will take you away from them protect you from the Hellfire except that I've told you so don't think that you're going to do or say something that the Prophet Alessa never did

00:36:08--> 00:36:11

you see a person doing something which is not from Islam.

00:36:13--> 00:36:14

You say to the person

00:36:15--> 00:36:18

it's very sensitive, people get upset.

00:36:19--> 00:36:23

Of course you have to choose your time right? Choose the correct time when you're advising people

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

so a person dies

00:36:31--> 00:36:33

so what is the correct time to recite Surah Yaseen with me

00:36:39--> 00:36:42

what is the correct time to write recite Surah Yaseen?

00:36:44--> 00:36:44


00:36:51--> 00:36:56

I didn't know I'm asking what is the correct time then I told you incorrect time. So what is the correct time to recite Surah? 80.

00:37:00--> 00:37:01

When you don't,

00:37:02--> 00:37:03

when your life

00:37:06--> 00:37:06

is good answer so

00:37:08--> 00:37:16

the correct time is whenever you like and when you're allowed to recite Surah DSC, but not specifying it to when the dying person is there or the dead person.

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


00:37:22--> 00:37:24

So a person dies,

00:37:25--> 00:37:42

that you should close their eyes, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us in Rouhani, the COVID can be overly bustle. That if the when the soul is taken, that the eyes that they follow it, the eyes that they follow it.

00:37:43--> 00:38:00

Week can't ask that person what's the reality what you're looking at this they're living in a different dimension almost, if you like, but you will find on many occasions as the prophet listen to informed us that when the soul is taken the eyes that they will fall it is like that they are staring at something they will the eyes will follow the soul as it is going.

00:38:08--> 00:38:11

So you close the eyes of the deceased

00:38:14--> 00:38:24

You should also make dua for the deceased. Ask Allah subhanaw taala for you to forgive them to have mercy upon them. You should cover the body as well. You don't need them open cover them.

00:38:26--> 00:38:40

Inshallah the Allahu Anhu mentioned that when the Prophet sallallahu Allahu Allah said when he passed away, that his body was completely covered with a soft embroidered sheet. So you've covered the deceased. You don't just leave them open like that you should cover them

00:38:42--> 00:38:46

except for the one who is dealing with does anybody anyone exceptions to that?

00:38:48--> 00:38:49

The martyr and

00:38:50--> 00:38:51

anyone else?

00:38:53--> 00:38:56

Yes, one is the judge or the one who's in a state of Iran.

00:39:00--> 00:39:05

You don't cover them. You don't cover their heads your face, that is the rest of them. Of course you come.

00:39:07--> 00:39:13

Also to a hurry the funeral don't delay it. Be quick with a funeral.

00:39:15--> 00:39:20

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said us today will be the Janessa Hastin hurry with the funeral.

00:39:22--> 00:39:26

If it is a soul, if it is a righteous and a good person,

00:39:27--> 00:39:31

then you bring it forward that righteous person to their good destination

00:39:33--> 00:39:44

and if it is an unrighteous or a bad person, then you remove the evil from your neck quicker. So in both scenarios, it is good.

00:39:45--> 00:39:53

It is good to bury that person quickly. Because you if they were good person, you send them to the good place in sha Allah and if they're an evil person, you would just cells of the evil person.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

The funeral or the quickness of the funeral is not just restricted to you

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

You know, if you happen to have any difference here so much in the UK anyway.

00:40:08--> 00:40:11

But if you've been in countries where

00:40:15--> 00:40:17

you know, they're not using the car all the time, for example,

00:40:19--> 00:40:21

you find that people are carrying

00:40:22--> 00:40:31

the carrying, you know, the the trolley or the coffin or whatever that they are using to carry the body and they go quickly and they, they are almost running, if you like,

00:40:33--> 00:40:47

the quickness or the barrier, the quickness of the janazah is not just at this stage, but at every stage. If you know that there is paperwork to be done, especially here in the UK, there's a lot of paperwork, paperwork to be done. Sometimes it's,

00:40:48--> 00:41:02

you know, it's quite frustrating the amount of places you have to go to get green paper and white paper and, you know, do that as quick as you can as well. Because there's a hug is the right of the deceased, that they ought to be buried quickly.

00:41:04--> 00:41:06

And that they shouldn't be buried in the place that they died.

00:41:09--> 00:41:17

You don't transfer them is against the Sunnah and is against the Sunnah, that they are to be buried in other than that place that they that they died.

00:41:19--> 00:41:23

So if a person dies in the UK,

00:41:25--> 00:41:26

arranging them to be

00:41:30--> 00:41:33

I'm trying to think of a word which is respectful, as opposed to shipped

00:41:34--> 00:41:46

you shipping a body and it sounds just a little bit disrespectful to say it like that. But to increase evenness to move one body to another from one place that is against the Sunnah shouldn't be avoided,

00:41:48--> 00:41:58

shouldn't be done. And even if the person was to write in their own will, wherever I don't please take me back to my birthplace, or have me buried in Medina, which Saudis won't let you do that anyway.

00:41:59--> 00:42:00

It's not to be done.

00:42:02--> 00:42:04

Place that you die, is where you're supposed to be buried.

00:42:06--> 00:42:07

And in fact,

00:42:08--> 00:42:09

I shuffle the alarm on her.

00:42:11--> 00:42:16

And this is something we'll discuss later that she certain times would visit

00:42:17--> 00:42:28

the place of Abdul Rahman Ibn Abu Bakar, who's the brother or the alarm, that He was buried in Medina. MK. Radha

00:42:29--> 00:42:30

was buried in Makkah.

00:42:34--> 00:42:47

He actually died in habita, her brother, and was taken from publisher he was taken muck and buried in Makkah. She used to visit him but she said it disturbs me that he was not buried where he died. And I'll be relying on

00:42:51--> 00:43:07

the moment that we know that person has passed away as well, is that if they have any debts, their debts should be paid off from their own wealth, from their own wealth. If they have money, that is part of their wealth, before it is distributed to any inheritance,

00:43:08--> 00:43:14

that any debts they have, they should pay that off, even if it means all of the money is gone. Nobody in no inheritance get anything.

00:43:18--> 00:43:24

So that person has 500,000 pounds as part of their teleca what they've left over.

00:43:27--> 00:43:28

Some members of their family thinking

00:43:30--> 00:43:31

I've got a few pounds to come.

00:43:33--> 00:43:38

However, they have a debt of 500,000 pounds as well. A number of debts.

00:43:40--> 00:43:46

That money goes to pay off those debts, even if it means that there's inheritance don't get the money now

00:43:47--> 00:44:01

the debt has to be paid first. That's the priority. There's not a choice that needs to be paid off. Even the preparation of their own funeral, purchasing their own cloth. And whatever costs there are in the funeral should be taken from their worth.

00:44:02--> 00:44:12

If somebody decides that they want to pay for it as a sub, that's fine. But if there's nobody coming forward to do that, this taken from their own mouth Morgana to take his you take that well from the

00:44:14--> 00:44:15

their own worth to pay for them.
