Hello Ron over him Alhamdulillah hero below the mean

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

SallAllahu wasallam ovata Kalia avidity. abdicate Rasulullah Amin Weiner early he was Harvey Jemaine

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

Soleimani Kumar has a lot of character when the sisters and

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

as was

00:00:52--> 00:01:00

advertised previously, this is a set of monthly lectures where we go through the journey of the soul.

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

And we will go through a number of important uppity issues or if you'd like tenants or faith, which is important for us to know, and also for us to take lesson from the different things that the journey of the individual that all of us will go through. And it's an inevitable journey

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

that no one escapes.

00:01:25--> 00:01:39

So one who is best prepared for that will have the best opportunity and chance to channel Tyler to get through what is as as many places that we find in the Quran as soon as a very difficult journey for us.

00:01:40--> 00:02:04

As much as a person has what they perceive to be some form of Raha or relaxation, or free time now, a time will eventually come that every soul shall taste death, as Allah subhanaw taala tells us golunov says the cat will note that every soul shall taste death and that everyone will go back to the Lord. And you will be judged for that what you did or that you didn't do.

00:02:06--> 00:02:11

So the last topic we spoke about was the difficulty of death.

00:02:12--> 00:02:20

And how that even our B ra salatu salam went through the difficulties or the what they say the stupor of death,

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

and how

00:02:24--> 00:02:33

the saved one is the one who's going to head who had a good life, who had righteous actions, that Allah subhanaw taala will grant them steadfastness.

00:02:35--> 00:02:38

Now, another reality at the time of death.

00:02:39--> 00:02:53

Whether this comes to them suddenly, or whether it comes over a period of time, because there is no set date, nobody knows. We discussed this as well, nobody knows when they're going to die. Death may come to you suddenly that you are if you want to say that you're not prepared.

00:02:54--> 00:03:10

But similarly, you find those who may have an illness, or have an extended period of time where they feel that they becoming weaker and that they know death is closer than they thought. Even at that time, they will also feel that they are not ready.

00:03:12--> 00:03:23

So you don't find that a person is in a situation where they say right I have completed what I need to complete I am where I am, and therefore I am ready to die. None of us have that guarantee.

00:03:24--> 00:04:13

And in fact, Allah subhanaw taala tells us, for many of us, many of us, that when the time of death comes that we will wish to return, we would wish to stay on for a little while longer. Even the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. We mentioned this as well, that they were given the choice when they would leave when they would die. And as we know that previous prophets didn't want their lives to be taken at that time and wanted an extension give me more life. And this was given to them Allium salatu salam, but eventually Malakal mode, or the Angel of Death would have to come and take their lives. However, Allah subhanaw taala tells us about the situation of a wrongdoer, a sinner, even the

00:04:13--> 00:04:49

Catholics that their wish is to return because now they know the reality that has come to them. And here in sort of me known, Allah subhanaw taala tell us a very powerful verses and number 99 and 100 where Allah subhanaw taala says, either the whole note that when the death comes to any one of them, or a big rune, they say, oh my lord, allow me to return why return and do what the only man or Saudi female thought that I would do some good actions from that what I have left behind,

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

and Allah subhanaw taala tells us Keller in her Kalama tune who will call you to her, and that no, it is just a word that they speak

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

Meanwhile in bottles on Isla, yo me, you were alone, and that beyond them are behind this Barraza or this life of the grave is the time that they will be resurrected. Now important point here is that when that person has that opportunity or claims that they want to go back,

00:05:21--> 00:05:41

it will not be as simple that that person is going to be they know the full reality, death has come to them. They know reality of the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala. So that they're going to be given an extra five years or a time the reality has come to them for them to do their actions. This would be unfair,

00:05:42--> 00:05:49

would be unfair for the for this opportunity to be given to some and not to others. For this reason, it is given to none.

00:05:50--> 00:05:57

There is no one who has the opportunity at the time of death, that you can go back for a little while, do some good deeds, and then you can come back later because you know the reality.

00:05:59--> 00:06:04

This reason Allah subhanaw taala says no, it is a word that they are speaking there's no reality to what they are saying.

00:06:07--> 00:06:13

If they were to be placed back and they would not, they would do exactly the same thing that they did before as Allah subhanaw taala tells us

00:06:15--> 00:06:20

so at that time of death, where there is no turning back,

00:06:21--> 00:06:25

that there is the rattling of the throat of God,

00:06:26--> 00:06:47

which is when the soul is about to be taken, that there is no opportunity for tilba no repentance at this time. Even though in all intensive purposes the person is alive, but the rattling of the throat of the soul is about to be taken, they have realized the reality that there is no tool but there is no repentance for that individual.

00:06:52--> 00:06:58

This is 1.1 to mention with regards to what the person will wish for, at the time of death.

00:06:59--> 00:07:00

Now as for the believer,

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

now we know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the hadith of robotic Nusantara the Allahu Anhu

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

man I had Bala Hubballi, aka Allah Habibollah who Yeah, that whoever wishes who loves to meet Allah, then Allah loves to meet that person.

00:07:19--> 00:07:20

So you have

00:07:21--> 00:07:27

lived a life of a badder worship, you know that your life will come to an end. You want to meet Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with you.

00:07:29--> 00:07:44

These individuals, the believers, our last panel loves to meet her them. Woman curry Holika Allah, that whoever hates to meet Allah because of their the new because of their sins because of their shortcomings because of the wrongs that they know that they have done. Allah hates to meet those people.

00:07:45--> 00:07:51

I shot one of the wires of the messenger Allissa to Salem, they said, but we do not like death.

00:07:53--> 00:08:06

We do not like death. You know, upon the statement of the Prophet alayhi salam who loves to meet Allah, Allah loves to meet them, meaning they're going to die. And then one of the wives are on the line home said that we don't love death.

00:08:07--> 00:08:30

The Prophet has said this is not what I meant. But what is meant is that when the believer is dying, he is given the glad tidings and the pleasure and honoring of Allah subhanaw taala. So there's nothing dear to that soul to that individual than that what lies ahead of them. So they have this love to meet the Lord Allah is about a quarter Isla and in turn, Allah subhanaw taala will love to meet them

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

in the hadith of Abu Saeed and and hoody Radi Allahu Anhu. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when the men they carry the deceased on their shoulders, if he was righteous, that saw that individual is saying, Take me quickly to be buried, because they have this desire to meet the Lord.

00:08:50--> 00:08:59

But if they want to press on, they will not righteous, they will say, Oh, whoa, where are they taking me and everyone hears the voice of this individual except for man.

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

We don't hear that. And if we were to hear it, we would fall unconscious. This is a sound Hadith, or our own necessity.

00:09:10--> 00:09:18

Another thing for us to be aware of as at the time of death is Fedora shaytaan is that the devil the shaytaan may come to an individual it's not for everybody.

00:09:19--> 00:09:41

And so the shrimp on as we know in the hadith of Jabra have not delivered on the alignment, that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said they share your plan is present with any one of you in all of your affairs. Even present when you are eating. So if any one of you drops food, then let him clean it off. So that no meat no dirt on it by saying Bismillah and consume it

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

and do not leave it for the shaytaan

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

and when he has finished eating, let them lick their fingers for they do not know which part of the food there is baraka. So the Share Plan is present with you all the time, even up until for some at the time of death, that he will

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

You may be see this is the last opportunity to cause you some form of misguidance. Or even to say the wrong thing.

00:10:07--> 00:10:11

And when we look at the verse in Surah, two early Emraan

00:10:15--> 00:10:45

where Allah subhanaw taala says Allah bene Allah to zero Kulu bene but either either had Atana will have learner Milan Kurama in Nica and tell her that oh Lord, do not let our hearts deviate from the hug. After you have guided us, and grant us mercy from you, truly, you are the best store. It's very important for our for us. And this is essentially that, Oh Allah, our Lord, do not allow our hearts to be deviated, after we have been guided to the truth of Islam.

00:10:47--> 00:11:02

So the CHE upon may come to an individual in the form of a beloved one who passed them, we died before them, and may try to say that what you are upon is upon deviation, that Islam is not true. Or Christianity is true, which Judaism is true.

00:11:03--> 00:11:25

And they come in the form of a dead parent, for example, the shaytaan will try to come to you in the form of a past, beloved one to you try and cause you some form of deviation. As I mentioned, that it's been happened to everybody, but may happen to some and there are some narrations from the dilemma. And the scholars of the past or him on Malta either that this actually happened.

00:11:26--> 00:11:42

So for example, imam in order to be Rahim, Allah, He said, I heard our chef Imam Abdullah Abbas, Mohamed Mohamed, el corte to be Rahim Allah saying, I visited I visited a brother of one of our teachers Abuja, Ahmed Mohammed Al Ko to be

00:11:43--> 00:11:51

and he was he was dying. He's on his deathbed. And it was said to him Kula Illa Illa Allah, c'est la ilaha illAllah.

00:11:53--> 00:12:00

As as we know, in the Hadith, luckily, no motel can be La ilaha illallah that tried to get union when he's dying for them to say the shahada, if at all possible.

00:12:01--> 00:12:11

And he was responding with whatever breath he had left, he was saying no, no. When he came to consciousness, we mentioned this to him.

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

And he replied that to share bonds, they came to me, two devils, they came to me one on the left, and one on the right. On one of them was saying, die as a Jew. And the other one was saying die as a Christian. And he was replying to these individuals, no, no, of course, to the Shahada.

00:12:32--> 00:12:40

So the share plan may appear to the person at the time of death at a time of weakness at a time where something that maybe

00:12:41--> 00:12:48

you have never experienced that you've never experienced a situation where death

00:12:49--> 00:13:04

if you question ourselves, you know, we all going to die, will readily say, Yeah, we will all die. You know, no, no one disagrees with that we're Muslim, no one will live forever. But the reality of what it is to feel the closeness of death.

00:13:06--> 00:13:28

You know, you go to the doctor, because you had, I don't know you had a pain in your side, your stomach or your back. And they send you for a couple of tests. And then the tests come, the test results come back. And they say to you, you're a very advanced stage of an illness. Maybe we'll give you two or three months to live.

00:13:30--> 00:13:37

And how would you feel at that particular time? It's impossible, it's impossible for us to imagine how you would feel the shock.

00:13:39--> 00:13:43

A shock that you would feel that how close death is

00:13:44--> 00:13:51

IE that the length, the length of life that you thought that you were going to have is no longer a reality the reality is that

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

you have a much shorter lifespan.

00:13:56--> 00:14:10

So there are many tests that may come to any one of us at any time. For this reason, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep us steadfast in this life, and also in the in the Hereafter.

00:14:12--> 00:14:23

And there are verses which are sought out to be Brahim what Allah subhanaw taala mentions that Allah subhanaw taala gives a firm statement to those in this life and in the hereafter.

00:14:24--> 00:14:28

Any meaning that affirms statement this life at the very end of their lives,

00:14:30--> 00:14:44

that they are able to stay upon the deen and in the ark era, meaning that when they are in their grief, that they have the stability and the steadfastness, to answer the questions that are posed to them by a man called Nikhil the two angels

00:14:46--> 00:14:50

so we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us the birth for dunya will occur.

00:14:52--> 00:14:52

Now

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

is another topic which we will maybe go over quite quickly is that there are a dilemma

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

But there are signs for a good death and maybe signs of a bad death. I mean, these are no absolutely not a are absolute, in how we look at them. So if a person dies in a particular state, this doesn't mean that they that person's a little Jenner, or that person is from a hello not, we cannot say that. We can't say that. But maybe, maybe, that there may be if you say like Allama signs for that individual, whether they have a good ending, or a bad ending.

00:15:29--> 00:15:46

So we ask Allah subhanaw taala for personal heart him, you should ask Allah, Allah Allah, to leave this world in a good state, not enough not in a state of Marcia, not in a state of sin or wrongdoing, that you want your you know your last deed, to be a good deed, something which is

00:15:47--> 00:15:48

pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:15:50--> 00:15:50

So,

00:15:51--> 00:15:57

there may be things like if a person has a corruption in their belief in Allah subhanaw taala dies upon that.

00:15:58--> 00:16:01

This may be a sign of a bad ending, but as I mentioned, it's not absolute.

00:16:02--> 00:16:40

It's not as placing individuals in general and not in the Hellfire or the Paradise because of how we saw them at the end. So if a person dies in Ramadan, and it's in the you know, they're fasting hamdulillah if they die in that state, maybe they were fasting higher, is a good ending to them, shout out to Allah. does it guarantee that they're on Jana? You know, because maybe once the person wants to put you know, one on one and get three, you know, Ramadan, those of Jenna open, they died, therefore, harassed, they're going to gender doesn't work like this. However, there may be good signs for them. Similarly, as I mentioned, that maybe signs for or bad sins are bad signs for that,

00:16:40--> 00:16:41

for that individual.

00:16:49--> 00:16:54

The next section, we're going to announce Allah Allah is that is the actual journey

00:16:56--> 00:17:09

of the soul. And this is very, this has been explained in a very detailed manner from the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salam by a number of companions, namely Abu Huraira, not the line who al Bara.

00:17:10--> 00:17:12

Abbas Rhodiola anima.

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

So, the Hadith, which is in Sahih, Muslim, on the authority of Abu Huraira, Radi Allahu anhu, he said, and of course, when the Sahaba says said this is not him, talking to him himself, is of course, quoting from the Prophet alayhi salam because these are a moral labia. These are matters of the unseen. We don't talk from ourselves concerning these issues.

00:17:36--> 00:17:40

That when the soul of the believer departs, it is met by two angels who take it up.

00:17:44--> 00:17:48

And he mentioned it is carried with a good fragrance.

00:17:49--> 00:18:06

And the inhabitants when it is taken up the inhabitants of the heavens they say, a good soul that has come from the earth. May Allah bless you and the body in which you used to dwell, then the soul is taken up to his Lord. And he says, take it to its destined end.

00:18:08--> 00:18:35

But one of the soul of the disbelievers this of course, partial of the journey for the believing solver the disbelieving soul is mentioned. Similarly, the two angels they will take it up. And it is mentioned that what a foul stench the soul has, and that the soul of this disbelieving soul is cursed. And it has said the inhabitants of the of the heavens they say, an evil soul has come from the earth, take it to its destined end.

00:18:37--> 00:18:42

This is one Hadith of Abu Huraira Iran who and the more detailed

00:18:44--> 00:19:30

Hadith in the Hadith narrated by the Barack Obama zip, or the line who mentioned the way in which the believing soul the righteous individual, how Allah subhanaw taala will honor that soul of that individual. And that as it is taken out of the individual, that the soul is taken from the believing body, just as we mentioned in the previous lesson, just as water pours out of a jug, very free, very simple very quickly. Whereas the soul of the disbeliever is taken from their body, just as you would take, if you can imagine cotton wool, and you submerge in water and it's fully with water. And then you get like a prickly Thorn. And then you pass it along the top strands are taken from that cotton

00:19:30--> 00:19:59

wool, just similar to the soul of the disbeliever is excruciating for the pain of that disbelieving individual how their soul is taken out. So a lot of Article Two Allah honors the believing soul being taken from his body and then taken up into the heavens and the all the all those who pass this particular soul praise that beautiful smelling soul, that beautiful individual and that the angels take it on a sublime

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

I'm in beautiful journey of honor. And the gates of the jinn are open for them for them to see. They do not enter but they see.

00:20:08--> 00:20:19

And as for the evil soul that is believing so that the angels of the heavens they curse that individual that the gates of Jannah are closed, they're locked

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

and that they will be shown their place of the NAR.

00:20:24--> 00:20:32

This will described in the hadith of Alvaro Espinosa or the yellow line which I will of course recommend you to go through and to read and to ponder over

00:20:34--> 00:21:01

that when the individual the believing soul is taken up. They are asking who is this soul who is this person and it is said this is so and so, the son of so and so forth are unable to for them. You mentioned by name call and that they said that the best names are mentioned concerning this individual and the opposite for the disbelieving Who is this individual. So and so. So on so on. So the worst names are mentioned towards this individual.

00:21:02--> 00:21:16

And then when they reached the highest place that they will go, it is said Allah to Allah Allah says, place the book of my slave in a lien, which is the register of the righteous deeds. And as for the

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

disbeliever the opposite and Allah Allah Allah mentions this.

00:21:23--> 00:22:10

In surah, Telmo toffee Hoon, madaraka, Leone and what will be what will make you know, this LDU What is this keytab motorhome? This is a register inscribed, yes, Hulu Hulu called Ramune, to bear witness those who are closest to Allah subhanaw taala. So the record of your deeds is mentioned here in this particular register. And again, this is where a lot of our doctor Allah mentioned certain matters in certain sewer that complement and explain in other places in the Quran, not everything you will find in one place. So this is how the Quran explains other places of the Quran. And similarly, how the Quran explains certain aspects of the words of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.

00:22:11--> 00:22:12

So they work together like this.

00:22:13--> 00:22:58

The two sources the two revelations of Allah, tomato Tyla are not on their own indispensable for the need to be together to be understood. They complement each other and not for one to be taken over the other or one to be eliminated. And of course, no one's going to eliminate the Quran. But there are those who say that we take the Quran nothing else. Just the Quran that the Sunnah, the practice and the traditions of the Prophet Elisa to Saddam, somehow, there is an they fall into the trap of the Musashi raccoon or the orientalist by saying, well, it wasn't compiled until you know, some 200 years later, after the death of the Prophet Elisa to Salem.

00:23:00--> 00:23:03

Witch number one, of course is not correct.

00:23:04--> 00:23:20

But a simple, very simple refutation and rejection of such a statement is that if you accept the Quran, as revelation of a lot of article to Allah, who are those people who preserved the Quran? Who are they?

00:23:22--> 00:23:25

None other than Sahaba Rasulullah is Elisa lambda Sahaba.

00:23:26--> 00:23:46

No one's going to argue with that. We will say the same people who preserved the Quran that you trust, and we do trust the P the sahaba. Yes, we trust them, of course in this was part of the preservation of the Quran. Then why is it that we would not trust or believe them in their preservation of the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam,

00:23:48--> 00:23:51

seeing that they were said and revealed at the same time.

00:23:53--> 00:23:58

So, you find that the Quran and Sunnah they complement one another.

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

As for the disbelieving soul, as we mentioned, they will be mentioned by their name and that they will be cursed.

00:24:08--> 00:24:18

And they will never be able to enter the Paradise because they are just believing sold. And he Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in surah took off.

00:24:20--> 00:24:23

When you hear a verse, you think what does that referring to?

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

So when Allah subhanaw taala says led to the hula hoop abueva Santa our awareables summit, when you go to Hulu not agenda, that the gates of the agenda will never be opened for them. Nor will they enter into Jana, at a yellow German officer mailhot until the camel goes through the eye of a needle and is impossible, please is referring to is for him to do disbelievers will never number one the gaze of gender never opened for them, nor will they be able to enter into the paradise.

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

Again, continuing in a hadith

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

Hello Brian, why is it

00:25:02--> 00:25:06

that it is mentioned that Allah subhanaw taala then says, record his book

00:25:08--> 00:25:33

in the St. Jean, with regards to the disbelievers, now, the register of evil deeds in the lowest of the earth, then it has said, returned my slave to the earth, for I have promised them from that, what I created them, that I will return them to that and from that, I shall bring them forth again. So, they are then thrown down to the soul then goes back into the body.

00:25:35--> 00:26:09

As you will see, the deceased maybe is in a morgue mortuary is in a coffin, that the soul goes on this journey. How long does this take, and it was imposed, we cannot put time on this. It is a different existence completely. This is happening one minute, one hour, hello, item, it's not for us to comment on. But we do know that this is the journey of the soul, they will go on this journey and be returned to the body, and then it is buried. And then when it is buried, it goes through and will come to this channel till eventually, it is questioned by the the two angels

00:26:19--> 00:26:24

the next part we go into now is the actual grave, I'll cover the grave itself.

00:26:25--> 00:26:32

And rough man if not a fan, or are the Allahu Anhu is a very famous narration

00:26:33--> 00:26:44

that whenever he whenever he would stand over the grave, He would weep and he would cry so much so that he would his beard would wet and they they would realize that

00:26:45--> 00:26:46

would cry profusely.

00:26:48--> 00:27:01

And it was said to him that you remember agenda, and then are you remember the power is in hellfire. But you do not weep in this manner. But when you remember the grave, you weep in such a manner.

00:27:03--> 00:27:20

And northmen radula and who he replied, I heard the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, I'll cover the grave is the first stage of the Hereafter for somebody start thinking about an agenda to one nor something happens before this.

00:27:21--> 00:27:38

And this is the grave that whoever passes through this safely, what comes out what comes after that will be easy for them. And whoever does not pass through this model, or this stage easily or safely, whatever comes after that will be very difficult.

00:27:40--> 00:27:54

And then he said that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I have never seen anything as disturbing and more terrifying than the cover than that what happens and occurs in the grave.

00:27:55--> 00:27:57

So what kind of things will occur in the grave?

00:27:58--> 00:28:02

There was a darkness, there was a darkness in the grief.

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

And the person may said, Well, you know,

00:28:08--> 00:28:09

I'm not afraid of the doc.

00:28:10--> 00:28:14

We're not comparing the life of what you have now in this dunya to the era.

00:28:15--> 00:28:17

They're completely different existences.

00:28:19--> 00:28:21

The Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and on occasion,

00:28:22--> 00:28:24

because he used to pay to the attention to the smallest of issues.

00:28:26--> 00:28:30

He noticed that there was a woman who would regularly clean the masjid.

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

And then he didn't see her and asked about her. Where was she?

00:28:35--> 00:28:38

And the Sahaba, the lion who said that she had passed away and she'd been buried.

00:28:40--> 00:29:02

And the Prophet Allison said, Why didn't you inform me? So he went to her grave? And he prayed for her Elisa to Salam. And here the prophets of Allah Some said that the graves are filled with darkness. But Allah subhanaw taala illuminates the graves for the occupants, by virtue of my praying for them.

00:29:04--> 00:29:17

Or the thinness of Buhari and Muslim. Okay, does this mean this is only a meaning, a light and illuminating for those inhabitants of the graves? Is only and can be only done by the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the answer is no.

00:29:19--> 00:29:42

But we take from this a benefit, that when we make dua for the deceased, we can similarly say Allahu Allah will Quran for example, oh Allah illuminate the graves, because we don't know what darkness may be in their graves. So by asking Allah subhanaw taala to illuminate light in their graves is something that we should do following the practice of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam

00:29:44--> 00:29:50

also, there is a squeezing of the individual in the grave.

00:29:51--> 00:30:00

So when the deceased is placed in the grave, He is squeezed in a manner from which no one how great or small or righteous or immoral

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

They will, that they can escape.

00:30:03--> 00:30:05

And in the hadith of Saturday bloomers

00:30:07--> 00:30:09

are referring to side of nomads

00:30:10--> 00:30:27

very great companion of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, in which the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said that he has to answer ramen, that the throne of the Most Merciful shock to the death of Sodom and Gomorrah is one of the great companions of the messenger Elisa to Salaam.

00:30:29--> 00:30:57

That if anyone or this individual started to be more of his janazah was attended by several Runa elf by 70,000 Angels and that if anyone who is going to be who had the right to be saved from the squeezing of the grave, it would have been sad they would do more else, but he did not wasn't saved from that what will happen to him was the squeezing for a very very short time.

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

So

00:31:02--> 00:31:08

as I mentioned, this will happen to everybody a squeezing of the grave. So

00:31:09--> 00:31:11

as is found in

00:31:12--> 00:31:14

the dua for the deceased

00:31:15--> 00:31:20

Allahumma was set Kobudo Oh ALLAH expanded their grapes

00:31:21--> 00:31:38

Oh, Allah expanded their grapes a person again maybe looking at from the physical world and say, well, they're buried in the same if they're buried in a coffin or Casket or whatever. How is it Kaif? How can the the grave will be expanded?

00:31:40--> 00:31:59

Again the principle that we do not compare, we do not compare the life of this dunya life to the to the earth era, or any aspect of the Hereafter they're completely different existences. So therefore it is also good to ask Allah subhanaw taala to expand the graves of the believers

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

and from the blessings of dura or the manners when making dua. It is not as though that the more people that you're making dua for the somehow there is a dissolving or spreading thin of your DUA. Okay, so for example, I want to concentrate all my dua for one person.

00:32:19--> 00:32:29

Maybe it's a deceased beloved one, or whoever it may be, Oh Allah give them nor in their grief. Oh, Allah expanded their grief. And when we talk about these things we're not we're referring to here.

00:32:31--> 00:32:43

Is there any hierarchy or an issue saying Allahumma not mono Allahumma, no word caboodle. Muslimeen. Meaning, oh Allah give illuminate the graves of all the Muslims of all meaning.

00:32:45--> 00:32:54

No problem at all. It doesn't mean that your door is any less for the more people that you're making dua for So, the more people you can make dua for than honey that it is good.

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

So, there is a squeezing of the grave.

00:32:59--> 00:33:07

There is also what is known as fitna to other will cover fitna to other will cover the trial of the grave.

00:33:09--> 00:33:16

What is this trial of the grave? The trial of the grave as is found in the Hadith, which is found in a pseudonym Timothy,

00:33:17--> 00:33:27

that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said that when the deceased to any one of you is buried, the two angels will come to that individuals called Moncure and Kia

00:33:28--> 00:33:31

and that they will prop you up in a harsh manner,

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

whoever you are,

00:33:34--> 00:33:35

and that they will question you

00:33:36--> 00:33:58

mandala book Who is your Lord Medina, What is your religion and the different rewired mother to Quran Muhammad Ali Salam, what do you say about this man, Muhammad Ali Salam, only those that we know the believers will be able will be granted about granted that steadfastness in being able to answer those questions.

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

As for the hypocrite, they will say

00:34:04--> 00:34:13

and don't think that they are smart. I'm gonna you know, I want to know the answers to the exam in the future. That motive or that particular time will be so

00:34:14--> 00:34:21

scary for them beyond the imagination that they will say, as informed to us by the prophet and Islam they will answer. I don't know.

00:34:23--> 00:34:25

I heard people saying this and I heard people saying that.

00:34:27--> 00:34:33

So only the believers will be have will have the ability to to answer these questions as I mentioned in Surat Ibrahim.

00:34:34--> 00:34:53

In chapter number 14, verse number 27, Allah subhanaw taala says You said that Allahu leadin men who build coal is beautiful hayati, dunya, waffleh, Hara, Lorazepam, tada will give all those who believe affirm statement in this world and also in the, in the hereafter.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

So the believer says, My Lord is Allah. My religion is Islam

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

And my prophet is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam than a voice will cry out sada cavity, that my slave has spoken the truth. As for the disbelievers of course, they will say, I do not know with regards to who's your lord What is your religion and what you say about Mohammed Elisa to Salam

00:35:23--> 00:35:34

should also be known that with regards to this issue of fitna to Allah will cover or the trial of the grave. This was something that was revealed to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam.

00:35:38--> 00:35:43

Automata Zubayr Radi Allahu Anhu narrated that his aunt.

00:35:44--> 00:35:56

Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu narrated that the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam came to me and there was a Jewish woman with me. And she was saying, Do you think you will be tested in the grave?

00:35:57--> 00:36:01

And the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was taken aback by her question.

00:36:04--> 00:36:20

And said, Allah hood, the Jews, they will be tested in their grave. Aisha Radi Allahu anha. She said that several nights passed, then the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi. Salam said, Do you know it has been revealed to me that you will be tested in your grave,

00:36:21--> 00:36:23

you will be tested in your grave.

00:36:25--> 00:36:33

So Muslims, not non Muslims, or there's some difference of opinion, everybody will be tested in the cupboard in the grave.

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

It is said that there are

00:36:40--> 00:36:52

some people who are excluded from this like the MBA themselves, the prophets and messengers will not be asked such questions because they were chosen by Allah subhanho, wa taala, and so forth beyond such questioning.

00:36:54--> 00:36:56

Now, just as

00:36:57--> 00:37:02

there are, we affirm the reality of the punishment of the grave.

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

We also affirm name will cover there is also the blessing of the grave. It's not just one sided. When you think about the gravest punishment, it's, you know, darkness, there is also now evil cover. There is also the blessings that a person may receive in the grave as well. And this is something undeniable, meaning there are so many evidences from the Quran and Sunnah, establishing this, it is not something that a person can deny.

00:37:35--> 00:37:57

There are certain ferok There are certain misguided groups who deny such a reality. Because they place one simple principle they use, that they place their logic, the Ockel over the knuckle, they place their intellect, over the revelation, they tried to understand all revelation through their

00:37:58--> 00:38:18

will the level of their, their minds what they can understand if their mind is like, well, I can't, I can't accept that I don't I don't understand it, then therefore they reject it. But we do not. We don't do that. As Muslims of course we interact and understand the new source of the texts with our minds. But if there's a matter that we do not understand, it doesn't mean that we deny it. We accept it.

00:38:19--> 00:38:29

There are certain groups like the monitor Zillow of the past and even some groups of the high wattage that they would deny the reality of what happens in the grief.

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

Now there are many verses from the Quran. Many evidences from the Sunnah of the Prophet so Salam, which established this.

00:38:39--> 00:38:50

Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah in his chapter, for example, in Kitab al Jinnah is the book of funerals. And he mentions verses from the Quran

00:38:51--> 00:38:56

verses in Surah, Allah and in surah, two tilbyr and Surah two offers

00:38:58--> 00:39:03

three very important verses all referring to what happens in the grave.

00:39:05--> 00:39:08

And Bill Manasa talking about here, the punishment of the grave.

00:39:10--> 00:39:23

So these verses in as I mentioned in surah Anam in verse number 93, in Surah, tilba, in verse 101, and also in sort of laughter in verses 45 and 46. We focus on the last one,

00:39:24--> 00:39:44

where Allah subhanaw taala talks about fear around or out of Iran, for that matter, the people of Iran, those who followed him believed in him and died upon them. Well, Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah says a narrow Euro Luna Ira her will do when was the year that they are the fire is exposed to them in the morning and the afternoon,

00:39:45--> 00:39:50

or Yoma to call Musa and it will be established

00:39:51--> 00:39:57

on them on the window on the coming of the hour. We said to them the URL of your honor. I shared that other

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

cause around and he's been

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

hole into the severest torment.

00:40:02--> 00:40:23

So, what do we understand from this area? We understand that before the punishment will happen to them in the hereafter ie meaning hellfire, there was a punishment before that. What is this perfect punishment referring to in the morning in the evening, no doubt that what is happening now to him and his followers and that is in the existence of the bodies are in the grave.

00:40:25--> 00:40:27

So this is just some of the references concerning

00:40:28--> 00:40:33

from the Quran concerning what happens to an individual in in the grave.

00:40:45--> 00:40:49

In the Hadith, Allah, Allah Barack Obama has it But Barack Obama is a part of the line who

00:40:50--> 00:41:00

says a long Hadith there is a detailed description of what happens in terms of punishment and reward to certain people.

00:41:02--> 00:41:14

As we mentioned, that there is that the person is set up in their grief in a harsh manner, and that they are asked those questions, which is a very frightful and a scary time for the individual.

00:41:15--> 00:41:28

Also, there is the hadith of Abdullah Hypno amor Radi Allahu anhu, uma Hadith in Bukhari, in which the Prophet alayhi salam said, when any one of you dies, he has shown his abode in the morning in the evening.

00:41:29--> 00:41:36

If he is one of the people of paradise, than he is from the people of Paradise, and if he is one of the people of a hill,

00:41:37--> 00:41:47

then he will be from the middle of the hill, either about the place that he has shown or she has shown. This is your place until Elijah Louella resurrects you on the Day of Resurrection.

00:41:52--> 00:41:57

Is there a punishment for the believers in the grave? Or is it only nine?

00:41:58--> 00:42:03

So the kuffaar will have no name, the disbelievers will have no blessings.

00:42:04--> 00:42:13

As for the believers, is it entirely and only goodness that is shown to them? Or is it the case that maybe that they may be punished in the grief?

00:42:14--> 00:42:18

It is the case that maybe they'll be punished in the grave as well.

00:42:20--> 00:42:27

The Prophet sallallahu and he said that on occasion is what walking past two graves, this hadith Abbas, radula and Homer.

00:42:29--> 00:42:35

And as they are passing these graves, the prophets are some said in no Homer Lee or the Bernie both of them are being punished.

00:42:36--> 00:42:41

Wilma you are the beneficiaries and that they are not being punished for what you perceive to be a major sin.

00:42:42--> 00:42:50

As for the worst, the first one kind of Yum, she'd been an EMA, the first one used to walk around spreading false tales

00:42:52--> 00:42:54

and Muthoni for cannula stuttered ruminal.

00:42:55--> 00:43:14

The second individual did not protect protect themselves from urine when going to the bathroom or caramel Kamala. So these may be the two reasons that a Muslim may be punished in the grave because of spreading lies and falsehood amongst people. And also not protecting yourself in the bathroom.

00:43:17--> 00:43:22

You don't protect yourself from being soiled from you and as a Kamala. And as we know,

00:43:23--> 00:43:25

in Hadith of

00:43:26--> 00:43:28

Ibn Abbas Radi Allahu Anhu uma

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

in Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam said I am to nurse, most people who are punished in the grave is because they don't protect themselves from you and as a Kamala,

00:43:43--> 00:43:47

that is a very important matter to protect yourself from an asset.

00:43:48--> 00:43:53

Another reason the believer may be punished in the grave is Hollywood.

00:43:54--> 00:44:10

And that is, if there is a battle between the Muslims and non Muslims, that that person steals the the war treasure, the goods, the booty from that they steal, that this may be a reason for that person being

00:44:11--> 00:44:12

punished in the grave.

00:44:14--> 00:44:26

Also lying, neglecting the Quran, Zina and riba these all other reasons mentioned in the Sunnah, that the person may be punished in the grave.

00:44:28--> 00:44:31

Hadith in a long Hadith and Al Bukhari narrated by

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

similar Ted Nugent,

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

or the lion who,

00:44:37--> 00:44:52

when they said, When the Prophet SAW Saddam had prayed, he would turn to face us and ask us, Who amongst you has seen a dream last night? And if anyone had seen a dream, that they would say the dream to the Prophet alayhi salam, and he would interpret the dream for them.

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

Semara he said on one occasion, the professor asked us who had seen the dream last night

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

No one answered, No one spoke.

00:45:04--> 00:45:15

The Prophet saw some said last night, I saw in my dream that two men, they came to me. And they took the my hand and accompanied me to the Holy Land.

00:45:16--> 00:45:18

There was a man sitting,

00:45:19--> 00:45:25

man said, setting up a tension, there was a man sitting. And there was another man standing with an iron hook in his hand.

00:45:28--> 00:45:36

He took his hook in his hand, and he inserted one, this hook into one corner of the mouth, which tore his face,

00:45:37--> 00:45:51

and then to the back of the head. And he did the same on the other side, then his face was restored. And he did the same again. So he gets the hook, puts it in and pulls it to the back, a horrific sight.

00:45:53--> 00:45:59

The messenger Elisa to Salam said, What is this, and it was said to him, keep going.

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

So he said, he says, and we kept going until we came to a man who was lying on his back. And it was another man standing at his head, holding like a big rock, and the rock would be thrown down on his head, smashing the head, the rock would roll away, and the man would come back. And by the time he came back with the rock, the head was restored. And he would do it again. And the same sequence of events would be happening. Again, a horrific sight.

00:46:28--> 00:46:38

The professor said, What is this? And they said, keep going. So we kept going, until we came to apply a place that looked like some giant oven.

00:46:39--> 00:46:42

It was narrow at the top and wide at the bottom.

00:46:43--> 00:46:50

I'm sure that you've seen this, you know, these kinds of clay ovens where the bread is a small hole at the top, and then it widens out like this. It's called a 10. Note.

00:46:53--> 00:46:54

And there was a fire lit underneath it.

00:46:58--> 00:47:03

When it came near, they rose up until they almost came out of it, they came so close.

00:47:04--> 00:47:13

And when it died down, they went back into it. There was these men and women had no clothes on, will being taken in and out of this fire

00:47:14--> 00:47:15

in this manner.

00:47:19--> 00:47:24

The professor said, What is this, again, a horrific sight. People being dipped in and out of the fire.

00:47:25--> 00:47:31

They said keep going until we came is the fourth example. It's given now until it came to a river of them of blood,

00:47:32--> 00:47:34

in which a man was standing on a riverbank.

00:47:36--> 00:47:38

And another man who was standing who had some stones.

00:47:40--> 00:47:50

And the man who was on the river started walking. When he wanted to come out from the river, a man was throwing stones into his mouth, which led him to fall back into the river.

00:47:51--> 00:47:53

And the sequence events kept happening.

00:47:55--> 00:48:02

Every time he wanted to come out, a stone was thrown into his mouth. So then he returned from the place from whence he came.

00:48:04--> 00:48:05

The Prophet SAW Salem

00:48:06--> 00:48:07

What is this?

00:48:08--> 00:48:10

And they said, Let us keep going.

00:48:11--> 00:48:13

Until we came to a green garden.

00:48:14--> 00:48:16

And there was a great, enormous tree.

00:48:17--> 00:48:24

And at the foot of this tree, there was an old man, I perceived to see an old man who had many children around him.

00:48:25--> 00:48:27

And in front of the tree, there was a man stoking a fire.

00:48:29--> 00:48:31

They took me off the tree and took me into a house

00:48:32--> 00:48:34

as the professor was explaining now,

00:48:35--> 00:48:38

and I never saw a finer house than that what I saw.

00:48:39--> 00:48:51

And if they were old men, young women, young men and children. Then they took me out of the house and up into the tree further into a house which was even better, in which there were old men and young men there.

00:48:53--> 00:49:02

And then I said, the Prophet SAW said, Tonight you have taken me around, and I've seen many things. He must explain to me what I have seen.

00:49:03--> 00:49:05

And they said yes, we will explain to you what you have seen.

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

As for the one who you saw with his cheeks being torn,

00:49:11--> 00:49:12

that he was a liar.

00:49:13--> 00:49:16

And he would spread his lies far and wide.

00:49:17--> 00:49:22

And what you saw will be done to him until the Day of Resurrection.

00:49:23--> 00:49:24

Meaning is he is in the grave.

00:49:26--> 00:49:43

As for the one whom you saw the his head was being smashed with a rock is the one whom Allah subhanaw taala taught the Quran, but he slept he ignored it, and he did not act upon not what he had learned. This will be done to him until the day is the day of resurrection.

00:49:44--> 00:49:53

And the one whom you saw in the like the note of the oven. Ah, those who is to commit Zina the fornicators.

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

As for the one you saw in the river who's consuming the stones is the one who consumed the river

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

interest.

00:50:02--> 00:50:14

US will the old man that you saw at the foot of the tree for that was Ibrahim Ira he said him and the children who around him were the children of mankind who had died in their childhood.

00:50:15--> 00:50:24

The one who is stoking the fire was Malik is the keeper of the Hellfire. The first house which you entered was the home of the believers in general.

00:50:25--> 00:50:27

And this is the house of the Shahada.

00:50:28--> 00:50:38

I am Gibreel and this is mica eel. The two men the professor's I'm sure was, in fact, two angels. Now raise your head.

00:50:39--> 00:50:47

So I raised my head and I saw something above me like a cloud and they said, This is your house. And I said, Let me enter my home.

00:50:48--> 00:50:54

And they said you have not completed your time on Earth. When you complete it, you will then come to your home.

00:50:56--> 00:51:18

This hadith is Al Bukhari Islam hadith is another Buhari showerhead to the point of mentioning this hadith is that these are some of the reasons that people will face either or punishment in the grave for some of these things that people can quite easily fall into fornication areas and below consuming River, learning the Quran and then neglecting it by not acting upon it.

00:51:20--> 00:51:24

But these are the things that we need to be aware of, as well as mentioned previous to that.

00:51:26--> 00:51:33

of the one who does not protect themselves from Nigeria or impurities in the bathroom as a Kamala some of the things I mentioned, like

00:51:34--> 00:51:41

the deceased may be punished, the Buddha will be by the crying and the weeping of others.

00:51:42--> 00:52:01

And there's a question here as to why is the person being punished in their grave by the action of others, no individual carries the burden of another Why do something why somebody has been blamed for that, and there are a number of interpretations for this. And from that, from that, is that that individual either

00:52:03--> 00:52:11

asked them to cry over me well over my death in their wills, this is what you should do when I die, encourage them to do that or did not warn them

00:52:12--> 00:52:27

on the other hand, and the answer possibly that he did not want them to behave in such a way of wailing and you know losing control when a person passes away. So this is an again another reason why a person may be punished in in their grave.

00:52:29--> 00:52:43

What to save us What should we do? Proactively now is the last thing we'll take inshallah today. Shallow today. How to protect yourself from a devil cover. Well, we know that in the hadith of Aisha Radi Allahu Allah.

00:52:44--> 00:53:01

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Kearney, yes, there is a woman out. He used to seek refuge from formatters woman her olam in order to become an adorable couple. Oh Allah, I seek refuge in You from the punishment of the grave.

00:53:02--> 00:53:07

So this is something we should be doing frequently in the last part of our Salah.

00:53:08--> 00:53:37

So you see that the Shahid adhere to the law he was Salah word, I'm going to talk about the last rocker of your Salah. And then Allahumma Salli, ala Muhammad, okay, the door Ebrahimian and then you seek refuge in four things or four things. And then after that, if you wish to make dua for whatever you like you can, but don't leave that. Don't seek or don't leave seeking refuge in Allah to Allah to Allah from and there are different variations on this and I would

00:53:38--> 00:53:46

refer you to personal Muslim, the fortress of the Muslim what to say at the end of your Salah. There are different durations of what you can say.

00:53:48--> 00:54:05

seeking refuge in Allah subhanaw taala from incapacity and laziness and cowardliness in miserliness seeking refuge and Allah subhanaw taala from the punishment of the grave, punishment of Jahannam seeking refuge and Allah subhanaw taala from the the racking up of debts and so on and so forth.

00:54:07--> 00:54:39

seeking refuge from a fitna had mercy had the journal, you seek refuge from the journal, these are all things you should be regularly seeking refuge from in your Salah, and not to leave it not to suffice yourself with the hair to really really quickly and Allah Mr. Liang very quickly and then I started going to philosophy and then you go off. Okay, these are specific times for you to be making these supplications and you haven't learned them go and learn them to make make them part of your of your Avada and especially your Salah.

00:54:46--> 00:54:51

There are others who may be saved from the punishment of the grave as I mentioned,

00:54:52--> 00:54:55

and one of them is the Shaheed the martyr

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

that in Hadith round and Timothy. Anybody man

00:55:00--> 00:55:08

Joe and Michael Dell Jim Carrey narrated that the Shahid has six blessings and from them who will be spared the torment of the grave.

00:55:09--> 00:55:15

Also a person who dies from a stomach disease

00:55:16--> 00:55:39

hadith of of Abdullah Abdullah Abdullah yes it or not the airline what IMO says I was sitting with Suleimani blue started. And they said a man passed away he died of a stomach disease. And they wished that they had attended his funeral. And one of them said, Didn't the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, whoever dies of a stomach disease will not be tormented in their grief. And the other

00:55:40--> 00:55:42

made him write by saying, Yes, he did.

00:55:43--> 00:55:46

And another generation he said, You have spoken the truth.

00:55:47--> 00:55:50

So brothers, sisters, will melt or death is a lesson

00:55:52--> 00:56:34

and inevitable journey. It is an inevitable event. And it is important that we prepare ourselves correctly. To think about it regularly as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us remember the destroyer of all pleasures. Think about it. Why because this will push you to do good deeds. Remove arrogance from your heart, remove all of these diseases which may enter the heart because you think that you have and you have and you have, when all of this can be taken away in a second and all of that what you thought you had, will serve of no benefit. When you meet Allah subhanaw taala. And know that the best of people Muhammad Ali satu Salam went through this journey, and has a life of

00:56:34--> 00:56:35

the grave.

00:56:36--> 00:56:58

Similarly, we will have this journey. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us Debert quantas steadfastness in this life and in the Hereafter, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us personal hajima to give us a good ending. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala that when we leave this life, that we die in a state that Allah subhanaw taala rather than Anna, that He is pleased with us.

00:56:59--> 00:57:04

And remember, as narrated by this narrator either white or a Buddha,

00:57:06--> 00:57:31

you give birth to those who are going to die, you build that which will be destroyed. And you focus on that which will pass away and you neglect that which will remain very powerful statement by a companion of one of the messengers. Sahaba of the messenger Alison Salamis is mentioned in Kedah episode by Abdullah Abdullah Ivan momordica Rahim Allah Allah

00:57:32--> 00:57:38

another book I'll just mention our complete this there's a book by emammal called to be Remo Lockwood at TIFF Kira as Kira

00:57:40--> 00:57:40

moto.

00:57:42--> 00:58:10

believe there's a title that is a reminder of the situations of a motor will era of what happens to the deceased and the situations of what happens in the hereafter. I think portions of it have been translated into English so it will be a good reference in one's preparation of leaving this dunya Allahu Allah Allah wa Salatu was Salam o baraka and the Vienna Muhammad in while early he was harbor James salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
