Father's Day

00:00:31--> 00:00:51

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

My dear brothers sisters I said I'm on eco morons Allahu wa Baraka wabarakatuh.

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

00:01:23--> 00:01:31

And it is one of those important aspects of Al Eman our faith and belief in a La Jolla.

00:01:32--> 00:01:33

And as

00:01:34--> 00:01:49

mentioned in the sound Hadith, in the hadith of Gibreel Alehissalaam There's a very famous Hadith in which you breed Ira CERAM came in the form of a man Hadith narrated by Ramadan hottub Radi Allahu Anhu

00:01:50--> 00:01:58

in which a man he came, was Gibreel Ali salam to ask the Prophet alayhi wa sallam a number of questions.

00:01:59--> 00:02:03

And one of the questions was Mel Eman what is Eman?

00:02:05--> 00:02:20

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded Allah EMA knew that the man is to believe in Allah subhana wa Tada Omada Ekati he will call to be he will surely he to be His angels, the messengers.

00:02:21--> 00:02:27

While yo mille Arkady to believe in the last day, we'll cover the Divine Decree

00:02:28--> 00:02:32

for the purposes of our sitting together and shout out to Allah Allah Milla hit or the last day.

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

Now with regards to the last day,

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

there are a number of

00:02:40--> 00:02:55

parts to that, with regards to our iman belief in that it isn't just Majora or just that this Yeoman pm everybody's gonna stand up in front of Allah subhanaw taala, being raised from the ground, to be questioned and asked about what you did in this life.

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

But there was a journey that each and every one of us that we that we go on, we are currently on that journey now.

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

And what we do in this life now,

00:03:09--> 00:03:15

this short existence, whether we live for 30 years, 40 years, 80 years.

00:03:16--> 00:03:25

This time that we live on earth will impact what happens to us in the Hereafter, for eternity.

00:03:26--> 00:03:36

And it's very important for us to understand that the importance of that, meaning that the small amount of time, if you can compare it to eternity

00:03:38--> 00:03:43

is extremely important. We understand and we do things right, while we are alive in this worldly life.

00:03:44--> 00:04:08

But Allah terracotta Allah told us everything that we need to go on this journey to be successful, and warned us of those pitfalls, those things on the side which might divert us away, take us away from the path to Allah subhanaw taala. Similarly, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam told us everything that we need, we don't need to make anything up.

00:04:09--> 00:04:18

Part of our iman, heart of alphas, part of the characteristics of the the Moon Moon is that we have a man who believe

00:04:20--> 00:04:22

we have a man in the unseen

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

meaning that we are reliant.

00:04:27--> 00:04:34

We cannot make things up as we go along in these matters. We are reliant on ye to explain those matters to us.

00:04:35--> 00:04:42

So things in this world they life, things that we can see things that we can touch and we can interact in. It's not part of the unseen we can see it.

00:04:43--> 00:04:57

But the existence that comes after this, like a higher terroir, as of a year, or that is the life of the grave. None of us have tasted that. We don't know what the reality of that is, except that what we have been informed of.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

Not for someone for example, to

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

come along and say, well, this will happen in your grave, we have full right to say where you got that from, because this is from the unseen animal,

00:05:10--> 00:05:22

part of the unseen. And at the very beginning of Surah Al Baqarah. Allah subhanaw taala talks about the believers under the you know, you may know and believe those who believe in the unseen

00:05:23--> 00:05:30

the fact that that we have not seen it, we haven't touched it or interacted with it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.

00:05:31--> 00:05:48

Because part of our faith part of our Eman is knowing that Allah Allah in the Quran and similarly in the authentic sunnah. If these things have been explained to us as a reality, but beyond the realm of what we have contact with, we believe in it without any doubt at all.

00:05:49--> 00:06:09

So very important for us to if we want to prepare ourselves for the next stage of our lives. And if you want to break it down further, there is the life of the grave. And then there is the standing your will PM. And then there is the journey after that where people will go in muffle Jannetty or if or not.

00:06:10--> 00:06:13

People will have a place to the paradise or the place to the hellfire.

00:06:14--> 00:06:39

Allah subhanaw taala promised us that the believers the good doers, the righteous people must say to whom Allah Jana, their journey will be in their placement will be in the Paradise and the disbelievers will volley Moon, the oppressors, the wrongdoers those who reject a lot of other Khattala that their place will be in the hellfire.

00:06:40--> 00:06:43

So it's important for us to prepare for this journey.

00:06:44--> 00:07:01

We know that the prophet is Islam told us that I like an example for you as like a journey, we are on a journey. We like strangers in this life life, you take a rest, like a person who's on a journey takes a rest next to a tree waits a little while and then he moves on.

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

It's very important for us as Muslims to recognize this reality.

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

And also to recognize and to know that we can easily be deceived.

00:07:16--> 00:07:27

That the world can be pulled over our eyes, that certain realities, maybe we don't want to face, we don't want to talk about it. And there are many times we have problems, we don't want to talk about small things.

00:07:28--> 00:07:35

So anything that we feel you will feel may cause us discomfort or pain. We don't necessarily we try to avoid that.

00:07:37--> 00:07:40

So things like molt, or death.

00:07:41--> 00:07:52

Or talking about things which are a big test. Maybe at times it's difficult for the person doesn't want to talk about it wants to involve and engage in things which will cause them to to forget those things.

00:07:54--> 00:08:10

So alas panel data warns us of not being from those who have been deceived by the by this worldly life, not to fall into an existence where you prefer and choose this life over the hereafter. Don't be from those people

00:08:11--> 00:08:22

that the hereafter is Jairo Abacha, it is better and everlasting. So therefore as Muslims, we recognize these realities and work for

00:08:24--> 00:08:29

work for our own interests in being from those who are saved in the hereafter.

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

Every human being

00:08:34--> 00:08:38

will person will die will pass away. But it's definite without any exception.

00:08:39--> 00:08:42

If anyone was to be saved anyone was to be given

00:08:43--> 00:08:51

an eternal life the best of people would have been given that but even then, the Prophets and Messengers Allah Himself to Salem did not have that.

00:08:53--> 00:08:58

So everything will have any higher an end.

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

And that there will be then a continuation of their journey and Arabic. This is a remote,

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

a remote

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

and what does a remote actually mean? we'll translate it as a deaf

00:09:14--> 00:09:22

but a remote. omerta something better in Arabic language actually means the complete stillness of something

00:09:24--> 00:09:36

complete stillness. So something mat is something completely still. So you may say in Arabic, Mata Nam, okay, that the fire came to a still it came to an end

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

or Matauri that the wind, it came to a complete standstill. So this is what the word means. And obviously when you transfer that to a human being, or any living creature, or creation that when it dies, there was a complete stillness. There was a complete stillness

00:10:01--> 00:10:02


00:10:04--> 00:10:06

this is a remote and its meaning.

00:10:07--> 00:10:25

And when we're talking about these issues, and it's important for you to kind of follow how we're going to talk about this, and the following lessons and Schelotto it may not come in the form of a storytelling kind of format for you, okay? I'm not going to tell you, this is what's going to happen and it'll be maybe parts to that. But

00:10:26--> 00:10:58

in essence when we're talking about an EMA, no, be in something or I'll believe in something's important we have our principles and understandings concerning those matters, supported with evidence from the Quran and Sunnah. Yes, there is the Hadith al Bara No acid, in which that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us about the journey of the soul, okay, maybe this is one Mahabharata is one lecture, you could talk about the long Hadith, but as you have a series of lectures inshallah we will go through is not going to be necessarily like that storytelling, but it is talking about essential

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

foundations, if you like or principles and understandings concerning

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

an Emer know or our faith in what it means and hieratic Barossa or the life of the grave what that means, what that represents, and on normal Chioma certain beliefs and certain things we uphold, these are the kinds of things and Chautala we will we will discuss.

00:11:22--> 00:11:23


00:11:25--> 00:11:47

the word melt and this is something that a lot about acquittal Allah mentions in the Quran with regards to the different types of death that a person may face, there are different types of death, you can classify it that there is a minor death and or the greater death and the lesser death, major death and the minor death.

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

But then you may say well isn't def def,

00:11:52--> 00:12:00

it is important for us to understand the verses that Allah subhanaw taala revealed to us in the correct context and the correct meaning. So for example,

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

in Surah, 12

00:12:05--> 00:12:07

Surah Talana, in verse number 60.

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

Here, Allah subhanaw taala talks about

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

or uses the word with her refer which is death.

00:12:18--> 00:12:28

Different words are used, but meaning the same. So Allah subhanaw taala says, well, one lady at our firm can believe that he is the one who causes you to die at night.

00:12:29--> 00:12:32

I was just referring to not all of us we sleep at night.

00:12:33--> 00:12:37

He Allah subhanaw taala calls this and tell us that this is a type of death

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

and how is this a type of death?

00:12:41--> 00:12:45

This is the type of death in that when you go to sleep, that your soul is taken.

00:12:46--> 00:13:03

And then it is returned to you when you awake. How is that? Do we see it? No, we cannot see it. But this is what we know is their bed that is established from the Quran and Sunnah. So this is like a minor diff, that when the person at nighttime, they go to sleep, the soul is taken, and then it is returned.

00:13:04--> 00:13:16

For this reason the Prophet alayhi wa Salam on many occasion would make dua to Allah to Baraka, Allah, that the one who takes the soul at night, that if you take it, and it remains with you, then have mercy upon that.

00:13:17--> 00:13:34

And it was returned to us, that you that we are given success in the time that remains with us. So during sleep that a person's soul is taken. And if Allah subhanaw taala decrees that soul is kept, it is not returned to that body, and the person dies.

00:13:36--> 00:13:39

If it is returned to the body, then they are

00:13:40--> 00:13:43

they're alive and they're given the opportunity to live another day if you like.

00:13:46--> 00:13:48

So this is one type of death that we

00:13:49--> 00:13:55

find in the Quran that is described in the Quran is the lesser death and this is when you go to sleep.

00:13:56--> 00:14:03

And this is also mentioned in sort of zoom or chapter number 39. In verse number 42, for references for yourself in

00:14:09--> 00:14:10

the greater dish

00:14:11--> 00:14:29

something that everybody will face. As I mentioned earlier, Allah subhanaw taala mentions this in a number of places in the Quran. For example, in Surah, two cosas chapter number 28 Verse number 88, Allah subhanaw taala says Kulu che in her liquid

00:14:30--> 00:14:34

that everything will appear Polish except his face.

00:14:36--> 00:14:45

Similarly, we find in Surah Rahman, chapter number 55. Verses 26 and 27 Kulu Manali,

00:14:46--> 00:14:58

but every one on earth will perish. Why up Kawahara because old jewelry will Iran and the Face of your Lord, full of Majesty and Honor will remain

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

And one of the most common verses that is used in Surah, two early Emraan. In verse 185, Kulu knifes in the aircraft will note that every soul shall taste death,

00:15:16--> 00:15:33

and that every single person shall be paid for that, what they did, and whoever saved from the hellfire and admitted into the Paradise is successful. And the life of this world is only the enjoyment of a deception, material rule.

00:15:34--> 00:15:43

So here Allah subhanaw taala reminds us that every social taste death and the blessings you have in this world, the life is temporary, it is not

00:15:44--> 00:15:56

permanent. You know, the enjoyment you have from any goodness from this life, in terms of worldly matters, phones, or houses, all of this needs renewing.

00:15:58--> 00:15:59

And everything needs replacing

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

comes to an end.

00:16:02--> 00:16:10

And these things shouldn't deceive you from the reality of the name of the blessings that may shout out to other faces in the hereafter.

00:16:11--> 00:16:13

There was also a verse in sort of the zoo model

00:16:14--> 00:16:46

in verse 39, or rather a chapter 39 Verse number 30 was penalty Alice's in Nicoma year to know who made the tune, very you you are Muhammad Ali Salam will die and verily they will die too. So this is again, a very explicit verse in the Quran, like the one previous that mankind human beings, they will die without any exception. And this is addressing the best of men, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:16:50--> 00:17:08

We could also mention for reference purposes in chapter number 21 And verse number 34 a lot about a catalysis warmer Jalna li Bechet in Kobe Likkle hold that we did not grant any human being immortality before you know human being lived forever.

00:17:09--> 00:17:18

So here we have four or five different verses talking about that we will die without any exception.

00:17:19--> 00:17:25

Men, women, prophets, messengers, everybody will have a time on this earth.

00:17:27--> 00:17:30

We should also note that there is an appointed time for every single person.

00:17:31--> 00:17:41

There is an appointed time for us to live on this earth. This is a knowledge which is hidden from us. We don't know when that is none of us know when we're going to die.

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

We don't know where we're going to die.

00:17:47--> 00:18:07

So we can mention the verse in Surah Ali Imran in verse 145. What Allah subhanaw taala says Wilma can early enough sin. Enter Malta Ellerbee vanilla Kitab them Agila that no person can ever die except by Allah Allah. Allah has permission at an appointed time.

00:18:09--> 00:18:28

So somebody would have a lifespan of 55 years, three months, two days, number of hours and minutes. That's your time. You will not have any more you will not have any less. And this is all recorded in a low had my fourth in the Preserved Tablet in which Allah Tabata Kota, Isla commanded,

00:18:29--> 00:18:32

commanded the Hadith herbicidal Hodari or the Robinho

00:18:33--> 00:18:41

Hadith in Bukhari, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, The when Allah created a Hulk created the creation,

00:18:42--> 00:19:00

the first thing that was created the Hadith has two interpretations as to the meaning that the first thing that Allah created was the pen is one interpretation. And then Allah to Allah because Allah commanded the pen to write everything, everything that would be until the coming of the hour, absolutely everything.

00:19:02--> 00:19:12

How Allahu Allah, the reality of that Allah doesn't describe how the pen looks, that was a big pen small bit Hello, Adam. We don't know that. But we know that this was what the prophet is salobre we believe that

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

everything has an appointed time, your existence, my existence, how long we will be here.

00:19:23--> 00:19:54

For sure, regardless of the situation, the death will come to you, and you cannot hide from it. So for example, a person wants to build a bunker, okay, I don't want to get struck by lightning. I don't want to come in contact with people who have illnesses, for example, or I don't want to drive a car or these things that may be the cause of a person dying. So they put themselves in a bunker, have no contact with the outside world. Eventually the person will grow old and that the body will eventually die.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

So there's no saving yourself. You're saving yourself from death.

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

It is a reality for every single person.

00:20:04--> 00:20:08

So ALLAH SubhanA, Allah says in surah took that off,

00:20:09--> 00:20:12

chapter number seven, in verse number 34,

00:20:13--> 00:20:36

where Allah subhanaw taala says, Will equally Metin agile, that every nation has an appointed time. And within every nation, there are people. So they all have their appointed time for either a new home, and when their appointed time comes, meaning what are we referring to here? Meaning when they're appointed time when they die,

00:20:37--> 00:20:52

though yes, that he will Oh, NASA. Well, are you stuck at the moon? That it is not advanced or brought forward? It is a specific time for every single nation for every single person that have an appointed time for them to live on this earth.

00:20:57--> 00:20:58

Hadith in Sahih, Muslim

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

hadith of Abdullah and Massoud what are the Allahu Anhu he said that I'm Habiba Radi Allahu Anhu the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam

00:21:09--> 00:21:16

said, Ya rasool Allah or messenger of Allah, allow me to have good time to spend time with my husband.

00:21:19--> 00:21:26

My father, and my brother, she went to spend more time with the messenger Elisa, Saddam, have more time with the father and her brother.

00:21:28--> 00:21:40

Ie do not let them die before me, I know that all of us have long lives. The prophets Allah liason responded, by saying you have asked Allah about a time which is already appointed,

00:21:42--> 00:21:46

and which it's days are numbered. And the provisions have already been shared out.

00:21:47--> 00:21:58

Meaning our time is our time, what we will receive is what we will receive and it is all been written, where Aloha my fourth in the preserve tablet.

00:22:00--> 00:22:08

Now, when reading through this, and listening at times previously for myself listening to lectures about this, so my life can never be extended.

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

And then I think to myself that there were other issues which came to my mind where that the Prophet SAW Selim that if anything was to change once brother or you protect you from it will be up, or bitter or validation.

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

If being good to one's parents would give you a longer life, what does this mean? How can I have a longer life when I know that I have an appointed time?

00:22:31--> 00:22:49

These are the kinds of questions these are the kinds of issues which is very important for us to understand, and not to be confused by. So on the one hand, yes, we have a fixed time and local method and the preserve preserve tablet. And then there are other narrations, which talk about that, you know, being good to one's parents, and given charity can extend your life.

00:22:50--> 00:22:53

But that doesn't sound the same that sounds opposing.

00:22:55--> 00:23:03

And this at times, may be confusing for us, and if not answered, or if a person is posing these issues, which there was a clear explanation for, by the way,

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

that may cause you to have doubts.

00:23:07--> 00:23:34

So it's very important to deal with these issues immediately and have answers because there are answers for them. And not to just to be told, No, no, no, you don't understand it has a higher meaning. Or we don't we just don't know how to bring it together. No, there are full answers for all of these things. And we will deal with these in time. Maybe I've opened Pandora's box now maybe it's a match you think I didn't know that? Well, how do you reconcile it in short, a local metaphors are the Preserved Tablet is something which cannot be changed.

00:23:35--> 00:23:56

But there is the quarter or the decree which is the yearly quarter if you like there is one and Leila Takada, which is decreed for you but is in line with aloha and my fourth. So you may do something on that particular year. Like go to your parents which extended your life for that period of time but because you did that by Allah Stovic

00:23:57--> 00:24:04

allows you to have a longer life, but was in line with aloha falls. Okay. This is very brief, but this is not the issue.

00:24:05--> 00:24:14

You will find here there's an overlap here. Okay with Emmanuel Qatar, Eman in Divine Decree with other affairs that what we're talking about and hereafter as well.

00:24:15--> 00:24:18

So as I mentioned that the appointed time

00:24:19--> 00:24:21

for our death is unknown.

00:24:22--> 00:24:35

And this is something that a lot about acquittal Allah tells us in Surah Tula and I'm, for example, in verse number 59, where Allah subhanaw taala says, we're in the home of the

00:24:36--> 00:24:44

Alamo, Allah Who, that Allah subhanaw taala, the keys of the flame the keys of the unseen, nobody knows them except him.

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

And also in chapter number 31 And verse number 34. We're alasa penalty, this is in Mullah in Alamosa. And there's a number five things mentioned here that are indeed only with Allah subhanaw taala. He has knowledge of what

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

knowledge of the Hour when the rain is going to be sent and knows that what is in when a woman is pregnant whether there's going to be a male or female, okay? Then the person says well we can do a scan we can find out what or even before that even before the woman becomes pregnant a lot about what Allah knows whether they are going to have a boy or a girl or have any children for that matter at all.

00:25:24--> 00:25:26

And no one knows what they will earn tomorrow.

00:25:27--> 00:25:43

Yes, you may have a job. But maybe tomorrow you lose your job. Maybe tomorrow an opportunity comes to you that you're able to Subhanallah receive more sustenance provisions Subhanallah so nobody knows what's happening tomorrow. And no person knows in what land they will die.

00:25:45--> 00:25:51

Again, this is all evidence to support there are certain matters, which only Allah Tabata Kota Allah knows.

00:25:54--> 00:26:18

This is in line also with the hadith of Abdullah Abdullah Ahmad Radi Allahu anha. In Hadith in Bukhari, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said, the keys of the unseen are five, no one knows them, except Allah subhanaw taala. And here the Prophet alayhi salam recited the verse in chapter number 31, verse number 34, in the verse that I mentioned, with Allah's power of these five things, beginning with

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

the coming of the hour.

00:26:23--> 00:26:28

So, these are important matters, as I mentioned, for us to understand, like,

00:26:29--> 00:26:39

everybody is going to die, there is no exception, the timing of that it is unknown time. But that time is what hidden from us, we don't know when that is, this is important for us to know.

00:26:41--> 00:26:44

The next thing I want to talk about Allah to Allah is the time of death

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

when a person actually dies.

00:26:49--> 00:26:59

So, when the appointed time comes to that individual life is drawing to a close, this may be fragile, it may be sudden,

00:27:00--> 00:27:06

or it may not be sudden, it may be that a person has an illness, and that there is a gradual

00:27:08--> 00:27:19

situation where the person will will die of an illness or something like this. Okay? So how a person dies, is in different ways. Sometimes it's sudden, and sometimes it's over a period of time.

00:27:22--> 00:27:33

Nonetheless, at the time of death, the angel of death will come to that individual and their soul is taken.

00:27:34--> 00:27:50

We as an existence have a body and a soul, okay? Now, when the soul is removed from the body, the body dies. Okay? When the soul the soul is removed from the body, the body dies, it's like a shell. It's like a shell.

00:27:52--> 00:27:57

When the soul is removed, the body dies. So Allah subhanaw taala mentions in Surah 12

00:27:58--> 00:28:30

chapter, chapter number six, verse number 61. In this verse, Allah subhanaw taala is talking about the sending of the angels who are sent because angels have different responsibilities. Okay, for example, Gibreel Ali Salaam has the responsibility of delivering way to the Prophets and Messengers revelation, then there are other angels who have the responsibility of sending the rain. There are the angels who write down the deeds of people.

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

So mother acre, angels have different needs, different responsibilities. They're all the responsibility of as well to take the souls of people to take the souls of people. So in this verse, in verse number 61, He Allah subhanaw taala says, in the meaning,

00:28:51--> 00:28:58

that he who will who will call Hebrew, how can a body that he is the irresistible to supreme over his slaves subhanho wa taala.

00:29:00--> 00:29:05

And that he is the one who sends guardians, here that half of it is the word mentions,

00:29:07--> 00:29:15

until the angels are there to protect you until the time when the angel comes to you and takes the soul of you.

00:29:16--> 00:29:23

So the angels also will come to you because of their angels who protect you. And then we're also angels who are assigned to take the soul.

00:29:26--> 00:29:35

When in brief, we'll talk about it in greater detail later, that when the angels appear to that individual,

00:29:36--> 00:29:48

they will appear in different forms depending on who the individual is. So the movement the believer, it will be a different scenario than a calf hit from the disbeliever.

00:29:50--> 00:29:55

So, and this is one of the we won't go through the entire Hadith as long

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

but there are different aspects are important for our discussion now.

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

So as Barack Obama said, this well known companion al Bara, Abraham, Isaac Radi Allahu Anhu.

00:30:09--> 00:30:22

He described, of course, taking from the Prophet alayhi salam, the journey of the soul, and is one of the if not maybe the most detailed Hadith, concerning the journey of the soul from the time of death.

00:30:24--> 00:30:38

Because once this happens, once the soul is about to take be taken, that individual goes through an experience, which is beyond our realm. It's beyond our something we can comprehend or know about.

00:30:39--> 00:30:43

Even though even though we see that person in front of us,

00:30:44--> 00:30:53

the soul now goes into a realm into a different existence that we cannot imagine, unless the person is actually facing that.

00:30:55--> 00:30:58

So this hadith, the hadith of liberal, liberal theologian who,

00:30:59--> 00:31:12

on the part one to mention is that when the believing soul, the soul of the believer is about to be taken to depart this world and move to the hereafter. That Matter acre angels come down from the heavens.

00:31:13--> 00:31:18

And they come with white faces, like the sun bright

00:31:19--> 00:31:27

and they bring with them a shroud from the paradise and that the shroud has a smell

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

from RWA agenda, a beautiful smell,

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

and that they sit in front of that individual.

00:31:38--> 00:31:40

And as far as the eye can see, that the person will see them

00:31:42--> 00:31:45

again is not something we can see, the individual will see that

00:31:47--> 00:31:50

and they sit in front of him as far as the eye can see,

00:31:51--> 00:31:57

the Angel of Death comes and sits at the head of that individual and says oh good soul

00:31:58--> 00:32:06

and in another direction, a peaceful soul, come out to the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala and his pleasure.

00:32:07--> 00:32:19

So, the soul comes out of the body just like when you are have a jug, you have a jug of water and you pour it it comes out quickly and easily. This is how the soul comes out of the believing body

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

according to the for the disbelieving soul disbelieving person,

00:32:27--> 00:32:36

that again Mala come to them, however in a different form. And they come down with black faces scary faces to the individual

00:32:37--> 00:32:38


00:32:39--> 00:32:43

and they sit in front of the individual as far as that they can see this where they can see

00:32:45--> 00:32:52

and it is said to them Oh evil soul come out to the anger of Allah and his wife Subhana Tannous Panatela

00:32:53--> 00:32:54


00:32:56--> 00:32:58

his soul or her soul is taken from their body

00:33:00--> 00:33:08

and it is just like an example is given if you can imagine you know cotton wool and then you get a cotton wool and you put water on it

00:33:09--> 00:33:27

and then you get like a Fornes okay stick and you try to and you pass it over the top like strands are taken from the cotton wool. This is what the example that was given by the prophet Elijah, the soul is removed from the body in this manner and it is something very painful for that disbelieving person

00:33:29--> 00:33:31

we cannot see what is happening at that time.

00:33:32--> 00:33:41

And Allah subhanaw taala tells us in chapter number 56, verses 83 to 85.

00:33:42--> 00:33:46

When Allah subhanaw taala says follow will either by law cattle comb

00:33:47--> 00:34:00

and then why do you not or when the soul is about to be taken and you are there present 123 The intern Varun the soul has been taken what can you do and the soul has been taken.

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

You cannot do nothing.

00:34:03--> 00:34:04

No one can stop death.

00:34:06--> 00:34:07

And even when you know

00:34:09--> 00:34:16

if a person is in a situation they're in a hospital or in a very difficult situation, a&e and things like that, doctors can only do so much.

00:34:18--> 00:34:21

If a person has a very desperate, dangerous situation,

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

whether it's to do with their heart, what has to do with their brain or some illness, they are limited. They're limited in what that they can do for that individual.

00:34:33--> 00:34:36

It gets to a stage where they say many times

00:34:37--> 00:34:42

that we cannot do any more with there's nothing that we can do to stop what is happening now.

00:34:45--> 00:34:58

So if a person may be sponsored to protect us maybe had you know maybe a heart that mild heart attack or something like that, what is the cause of it? Maybe it's just, I don't know, maybe the old nudge you know, these things happen. By Allah's permission.

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

If we can't do anything, we hope that the person will recover. Maybe we'll give some some medicine maybe to lower the pressure of the blood or things like that. However, there's no guarantee.

00:35:10--> 00:35:15

So man's or human beings, ability to stop,

00:35:16--> 00:35:19

the process of what is happening now is limited.

00:35:21--> 00:35:22

And no one will doubt that

00:35:24--> 00:35:26

Muslim non Muslim, it's reality.

00:35:30--> 00:35:49

So when the soul is being taken from that person, it could be instantly, and it could be over a period of time, depending on how that person is going to die. Nonetheless, the soul will be removed from that particular individual in different manners. So for the believing soul, there is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:35:50--> 00:35:53

And for the disbelieving individual, there was a punishment,

00:35:54--> 00:35:56

once the life is over,

00:35:57--> 00:36:03

that the blessing or the reward or the punishment starts straightaway.

00:36:04--> 00:36:23

It is immediate, there's no like you have some respite until your meal piano. No, there was an existence before that, and is the life of the grave. And from when I say life of the grave, it doesn't necessarily mean that when you're put in the grave, everything starts. There is also a journey before that, as we have just mentioned, from the hadith of Barack Obama.

00:36:29--> 00:36:30

At the time of death,

00:36:32--> 00:36:33

there's no doubt

00:36:34--> 00:36:51

and it is something that you and I we have not faced, we have no experience of what it is like that the situation is uncontrollable. Something is happening that you have never experienced before. No doubt, the natural reaction is to be to be afraid and to be scared.

00:36:53--> 00:36:56

However, Allah subhanaw taala

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

reminds us,

00:36:59--> 00:37:09

gives us some beautiful advice about what happens at that time. For example, in chapter number 41, in verses number 3232.

00:37:11--> 00:37:26

When Allah subhanaw taala says in Allah the Nakamura Boon Allah, those who say that Allah is my Lord, from Docomo that they remain firm upon that, so there's a stage meant to be, I believe in Allah and then you remain firm upon that.

00:37:28--> 00:37:45

That 100 Zero Ali him will mela Iike the angels will descend upon them, and many of them offer see rune have said this is concerning at the time of death. But angels will descend upon them, just as described in the hadith of Al Bara Abdul Azim

00:37:48--> 00:37:56

alerta Hafele wala has that do not be afraid, do not be sad, or be Shirou will Jana?

00:37:57--> 00:37:59

So a time of fear,

00:38:00--> 00:38:16

being very afraid. The angels will come to you in a beautiful manner, bringing beautiful smells and clothing and shrouds telling you don't be afraid, don't be scared, the glad tidings of the paradise now as the reality

00:38:17--> 00:38:31

now is the reality of everything that when you went to the masjid and you heard what was being said in the hotbar, or the doubts about what happens in the Hereafter, it all comes as a reality now, similarly for the disbeliever

00:38:32--> 00:38:40

they were maybe heard about certain things, there's a hereafter maybe they deny the they didn't take. There's no care for them. That time

00:38:41--> 00:38:42

is a reality.

00:38:44--> 00:38:52

But yeah, it's a curtain multiball hack, the stupid of death comes to the individual in complete truth. That was what you denied.

00:38:53--> 00:39:05

There will be no turning back, no second chances. When the time is up, the time is up and the person begins their journey on to the next life on to the next life. So this verse here

00:39:06--> 00:39:15

is talking about for the believing people, that they will be given blessings by Allah subhanaw taala with the sending of angels telling them not to be afraid not to be scared

00:39:17--> 00:39:23

but also to give them glad tidings to remind them of the goodness that was waiting for them or that is waiting for them.

00:39:25--> 00:39:38

That we are your your friends. Nana Oh LEAH Oh kung fu hated dunya Orfila Hara we will your support as in friends in this life. And also similarly in the hereafter there's you're not alone.

00:39:40--> 00:39:47

Then in the hereafter welcome free. hermer tester here for SOCOM and hereafter, you will have what you like.

00:39:48--> 00:39:55

Well, a comfy hermit hermetic their own and whatever you want that you will have that Newsela manila folder of him.

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

This is an entity of blessing that Allah subhanaw taala sent down

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

for you and gave to you, this verse alone is very powerful verse is very important for us to to understand for us at the time of death, because the Muslim should fear death.

00:40:12--> 00:40:22

Maybe there's a fear of what you leave behind your family, your wife, your kids, but as Allah subhanaw taala is looking and protecting you now.

00:40:23--> 00:40:37

Allah subhanaw taala, even Elita Allah will continue to do that for your family. If you're not there. There may be challenges, but there's nothing stopping them prospering. And going on to greatness, the shallot Allah by Allah has permission, being servants of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:40:38--> 00:40:55

But the believer is clear, doesn't take anything for granted. But for the believer, it is clear about what is going to happen is not unknown, the unknown will cause fear into you. What happens next, I don't know. And you become scared. But for the believer, you know exactly what happens. This is what happens is what Allah promised me.

00:40:56--> 00:40:59

Allah promised the believers, this reward

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

for the disbelievers, those who rejected, this is what they face.

00:41:05--> 00:41:13

This is what pushes me now, to do good, to be righteous, to fulfill the obligations, to do good to others.

00:41:14--> 00:41:19

And this is something that you do every day, while we're here, because we know impacts on what happens on here after.

00:41:22--> 00:41:30

So this is the goodness in the glad tidings that the melodica that they give to the believing people the believing souls at the time of death.

00:41:32--> 00:41:45

As for the disbelievers the wrongdoer, the evil doer, that the murderer aka as Allah subhanaw taala describes to us and tells us in Surah 20, set chapter number four, in verse number 97,

00:41:48--> 00:41:57

where Allah subhanaw taala is in Lavina, Topher humble mela Iike, those individuals whom the angels they take their souls, volley me and foresee him

00:41:58--> 00:42:01

that they were ragging themselves or pressing themselves.

00:42:03--> 00:42:05

And the verses of course, referring to a particular people

00:42:06--> 00:42:08

about those who refused to make the Hegira

00:42:10--> 00:42:20

but it doesn't mean that this verse is only concerning those particular individuals and example is given, but it is also am, it is also concerning any individual who is a wrongdoer, on oppressor.

00:42:22--> 00:42:24

disbeliever when their soul is taken,

00:42:25--> 00:42:34

that the angel of death is ordered to take their soul in a very gruesome manner, if you like.

00:42:38--> 00:42:44

In chapter number eight, in saw that will unfold in verse number 50, and 51.

00:42:46--> 00:42:47

Where Allah subhanaw taala describes

00:42:49--> 00:42:52

the situation of the disbelievers when their soul is taken.

00:42:55--> 00:43:00

When Allah Allah, Allah says in the meaning, and if you could see when the angels take away the souls of those who disbelieved

00:43:01--> 00:43:06

the smile on their faces, the pain that they face,

00:43:07--> 00:43:08

and it is said to them

00:43:11--> 00:43:15

while the Aquila verbal headache, and now taste

00:43:16--> 00:43:21

this blazing punishment, the fire because of what you disbelieved in,

00:43:22--> 00:43:31

this is what your hand put forward, when you were alive, you rejected. We chose the higher to dunya of this life over the hereafter.

00:43:32--> 00:43:39

You had your time you had your fun, you had your moment that has come to an end, there are consequences to that.

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

So this is what I love about acquirement terracotta Allah mentions in sort of that NFL in verses 50 and 51.

00:43:50--> 00:43:52

The actual moment,

00:43:54--> 00:43:56

the actual moment of the soul being taken,

00:43:57--> 00:44:00

is also another moment for us to describe and talk about as well.

00:44:01--> 00:44:07

It is cool and as I mentioned, said that a low to or death involves a kind of

00:44:09--> 00:44:38

the word an hour because what he's mentioned in his in Surah to cough and I mentioned earlier in verse number 19 wotja at Sakura tool multiball Huck Sacra, what is the intoxication when somebody's drunk at the Quran? When somebody is intoxicated, drink alcohol, wine or beer spirits, the Quran that's intoxication. They're in a state where they're not knowing what is going on their mind. They've lost their mind. They've lost their mind completely. They're in control of themselves.

00:44:40--> 00:44:45

So here Allah subhanaw taala describes the time of death like this,

00:44:46--> 00:44:49

that there this moment,

00:44:50--> 00:44:51

it is like they lose their minds.

00:44:52--> 00:44:55

They have zero control of what is happening

00:44:58--> 00:44:59


00:45:00--> 00:45:02

There aren't many times it happens to us in life.

00:45:03--> 00:45:06

Where and if that does happen, it's usually very quick

00:45:08--> 00:45:12

that you know something is happening. And you can just do absolutely nothing, you can't do nothing.

00:45:13--> 00:45:18

You have no control, no person can help you. No device can help you.

00:45:19--> 00:45:20

It's just you on your own.

00:45:24--> 00:45:26

This time of death is one of those times

00:45:27--> 00:45:32

nothing can stop it. And because of that, you have lost complete control.

00:45:33--> 00:45:36

Whether the person is in a state where they like they lose their mind.

00:45:39--> 00:45:42

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his final moments

00:45:45--> 00:46:07

and it is narrated by Aisha radi Alana, and as we know, in the final moments of the Prophet SAW Selim is life. He sought permission to be in the house of Aisha, Radi Allahu Allah Anna. He wasn't able to go around. He was very ill Elisa to Salem. And he was laying down in the lap of Ayesha Rhodiola Anna, coming in and out of consciousness.

00:46:08--> 00:46:11

And that when he was awake, somewhat,

00:46:12--> 00:46:15

that he would say, La Isla Illallah

00:46:16--> 00:46:18

that there is none worthy of worship except Allah.

00:46:20--> 00:46:28

In a little mo de la Surat that there is in depth, this kind of intoxication, but then the person when they're when they're dying.

00:46:31--> 00:46:38

However, remember the verse that we mentioned earlier? Because yes, with the lack of control of what is happening.

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

We know that Allah subhanaw taala says, You said bit Allahu Lavine. Manu, will call it a beautiful hieratic dunya

00:46:47--> 00:46:49

Yes, of course, is referring to the cover

00:46:51--> 00:46:52

the questioning in the grave.

00:46:53--> 00:46:57

But when the person is in this state, Allah Subhan, Allah allows them to be

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

firm, to be steadfast.

00:47:02--> 00:47:29

And that the shade pine is Hadees. Maybe we mentioned this, maybe in this lesson be the next one. shaytaan will try anything that he can to cause you confusion may become in the form. Imagine this now may come in the form of one of your parents, and your parents, you're just stuck. You can you can see like a parent, you're on the verge of losing control. And your parent is saying give up Islam, it's wrong. Give up Islam, it's wrong. It's all false.

00:47:30--> 00:47:33

The shaytaan trying to divert you to mislead you just before you die.

00:47:35--> 00:47:48

So these are the kinds of things that may happen to an individual everybody. For this reason, you ask a lot of fun tomorrow to Isla for Tibet to remain steadfast, steadfast at the time of death, being able to say the Kalama if you can

00:47:51--> 00:47:52

it's important for us again to remember this

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


00:47:58--> 00:48:10

we're going to stop him Charles Taylor, because we've gone on for maybe like 45 minutes or so. And we will continue to shadow Tyler in the next lesson, which will be next month, I believe he started having a third of Joomla

00:48:12--> 00:48:53

the class is recorded I do believe and it's put on the social media pages of of greenline Masjid. So if there's anything that maybe you missed, you want to go over again a shot at that you will find that there be no later isla. And in the meantime, I ask a lot of radical to Allah to grant us Sebert upon Dean and Huck upon the true religion I asked Allah subhanaw taala to give us good health, to allow us to be able to solely hand to be as righteous servants and that that anytime Allah subhanaw taala has will you know we decreed the we leave this worldly life, the WHO ARE ALL THE Nana that He is pleased with us with us. Baraka la vie come just like when O'Hara or SallAllahu wasallam Oh

00:48:53--> 00:48:57

baraka and LBNL Muhammad who early he was herbage famous Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullahi wa
