Santa Monica rahmatullah wa barakato
hamdulillah salat wa salam ala Muhammad wa ala alihi wa salatu salam ala Steven.
Now, welcome to a new lecture series of shallow Dalits, a continuation of a series we started over a year ago, on the on the journey to the Hereafter, we were discussing the science of the Day of Judgment, the preparation for the era. And the first part of this journey is still in this war and this dunya. So shall what we're going to do, we're going to talk Part Two starting next week with the last module and that will be the actual science of the Day of Judgment. But before we do that, I want to just to go over what we discussed over a year ago, in many, many months of handler, but I mean, and we've covered the subject of death, and the subject of the grave, that is related to life,
of course, you know, after death, how to deal with the body, what happens to the soul, the fitness of the grave, all these aspects will cover that but I just want you to see now inshallah, within this within half an hour, all these topics will be discussed together and shallow to Allah as a reminder, and then connecting that with the next week in Charlotte on a topic with a large soldier. So the first part of the journey to the Hereafter, is actually death itself. Why do we say that death is, is the act is considered part of the journey to the Hereafter, because the prophets of Allah awesome says about the Day of Judgment, call man not advocate climate chiamato anyone who
dies, his day of judgment or this started for him or for her, you don't have to wait 1000 years, 100 years or two more or less 1000s of years, until the day of judgment established for you to the technically speaking, the moment you die, the day of judgment has already established for you, you're waiting there in a chamber of life called Alberta until the loss of power that gives the command for the Day of Resurrection to be established and people come back to life in a certain way. And then eventually they go to the sub account. And then Jen or Jana mela protect us from Jana. So the first step to the Hereafter is actually death because death is considered the first step to the
day of judgment and the hereafter does an individual basis, but on a massive basis. This discussion will be next week in shallow Donna. So how as believers as Muslims, how do we view this? The first thing we learn about that is that is considered Muslim, and America most of it means catastrophe, a calamity that's what it means. Allah subhana wa even mentioned that in the Quran for us about Kumasi, but remote, and you've been you've been hit by the disaster or the calamity of death. So death is indeed a calamity. So there is no way you can trivialize the subject or the matter of death. It is a serious matter. So and even Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he mentioned that in the
Hadith, that if someone loses a beloved one, according to Mr. De La Ilaha, when her husband passed away, the Prophet salla salaam, he mentioned that if you lose somebody just say, Allah majority Muslim, Allah give me the reward reward me and in my masiva and the meaning of masiva, in that context was death itself. So that is considered masiva. No one ever should trivialize the subject, matter of death
Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam even he mentioned that his the greatest Mercy by the oma has ever fallen into was the mercy of the death of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam imagine us today living 1500 years after the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam if you check that the Muslim Ummah, the condition of the Muslim Ummah and the world all together, it's really it's so sad situation. You look at Muslim countries and what they're going through, whether it's in Bangladesh, in Kashmir, in Syria, in Iraq, and philistin, other places of the Muslim world, you look at the situation, even the non Muslim mode, how the tyranny, you know, going beyond even measure how people living in miserable
situations, and somehow the rich is getting richer, and the poor getting poorer, and the diversity of the situation is so great. And without having the Prophet salla sell them or the message of the profits that are set up amongst us. It is indeed a great masiva. And whenever the professor Sam says whoever thinks of the most evil calamity in their lives, they should think of the loss of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
One thing we all know about death and there is no doubt about it, that is it is certain, and there are even they say, there is no such thing as so certain that is being treated like completely uncertain than death. Everybody knows that death is certain, but the way people live their life as if it's completely doubtful, uncertain. So they live the life of somebody who does not even believe that that is going to come to them. So this is something that's considered completely certain. And the last part that it says will drop back to Cali Athene Allah named death Alia T which means the more the certainty the most certain thing. And we see that of course, every single day, every now
and then we hear about someone who passed away whether passed away out of old age or because of some circumstances of death. So death is certain
If it is certain, how should you view it, it should be viewed as, as actually as a motivation. Because that is certain that means life that we live, the life that we live is temporary. And since it's temporary, how should you How should you live your life, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he gave us the example of the traveler, live your life in this world as if you're a traveler or a stranger, meaning someone who doesn't have much hope in the land where they reside temporarily. If you're driving on a road or a road trip, and you stopped by a small town just for recreation, maybe just to fill gas and so on, you don't have hoped to stay longer than maybe a few minutes and not in few
hours. So you don't have that hope to deliver more than that. That's exactly how much life should be viewed. But at the same time, you balance this with working for the donor and the alpha. So the meaning of this statement here is that when it when it comes to matters of dunya, you live as if you live in eternity, when it comes to the matters of Astra you live as if you die tomorrow. Because when you know that you have a long life to live, you build for it. And we know that there's a day that you will meet your lots of Hannah, what are you always prepared for it. So whatever you do today, you balance these two things, that I'm living a longer life. So I'm going to keep building my
house, building my career, do my education, my business, but at the same time, I know I'm going to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala. So whatever I do, in the process of building myself, it has to be something that pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala, and something concert Allah, that is the meaning of this. And that's the concept of living that temporary life in that fashion.
And that's when people go to the grave they have, these are the different categories of people as they go to the grave, the stranger, the travelers, and those inhabitants of the grave are who will also stay temporarily until the Day of Resurrection. This, this on the just like I mentioned, should not be an obstacle should not be a source of depression. Like many people who don't believe in the era, when they know that death is certain. And there is nothing really that they can enjoy, when they always know that they're going to die somehow. So they never do anything positive. Or what they do is they want to live the moment. That's it until this comes to them. But for Muslims, you know
that that is a motivator, meaning it's a source of motivation for it. Because if you know that this life is temporary, then you need to make this life worth living. And we know that it's worth living because it's considered massage.
This is just you plant the seeds for the hereafter. you plant the seed in this world. So you can reap a load out of the fruit in the hereafter Allah subhanho wa Taala says about death and life under the helical multiple hayata, Leah blue au come as an hamana. He is this panel data who created death and life to test you. So death and life okay to test you. So if you know that you're dying, you prepare for the initial load of data. And also realize all of a sudden, he said ecumenically huduma, that remember, often the distort the destroyer of pleasure. And that is this. Because when you remember this in any in any kind of condition of your life, if you have a very constrained
lifestyle, if someone believe that their life is miserable, and they remember this, guess what, this becomes very welcome for them. Why? Because that means I'm going to get out of that misery. And if some people they live, they think and they live for eternity, and they start kind of misbehaving because there is no thinking of that account, when they remember death, that balance their views of that of that pleasure. So they don't even if I'm gonna enjoy the pleasure, but remember, remember that you're meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you're always prepared for that.
Some people, they're very obsessed with the idea of death, that they never do anything. And I've met some of those people. As a matter of fact, when you ever ask them to do something in life, they say, what's the point? And they just don't want to even benefit other people. And so you know what it doesn't have to be for you. They do something that other people can benefit after you. And we'll learn from all that in the past the peoples of the past what they used to do, they used to plant and this is something very common in almost every culture. That will it was said that an old man was seen planting a tree that wouldn't give fruit until maybe possibly after his death.
So when he was told, why are you Why are you planting this tree when you know that you're not going to live long to enjoy the fruit of that tree? So he said his very famous statement Arabic language 01 as an alpha Quran, he said that they planted for us talking about their forefathers, they planted for us today with eating what they planted for us. So now we planting for them which we for those who are going to come after us. So whatever you do, always think that you live legacy for other people who shall allow data to enjoy afternoon. It's inevitable. It's considered natural. So try not to resist that. If it comes in when it comes. It comes. Don't panic. The moment is gonna come it's
Something natural. It's a constant reminder of the hereafter. And the constant reminder to do good all the time, because every time you see yourself not doing very well, remember, this might be the last thing you do. So make it something that it's worth really, and being proud of an image lots of hands on.
So there is many ways of viewing death as Muslims, we view this as a source of motivation.
On the second session that we had about death, we talked about them, which is the man of the AMA, when death is completely forgotten, even though we know that that is certain that is going to come whether we like it or not, there is no way you can escape that it's inescapable thing, but still, people tend to forget. And that's why in the Arabic language humans are called what are the human beings called in sand. And the Arabic party says, When my son met in Santa learn in St. Roman, Lima, acculevel, masumi inside Southern Illinois, he means insaan his humans were called in sand because of their quality of nacion which means forgetfulness. They're called insane because they keep
forgetting what masumi ilimitado level and the color which is the heart was called called because cold also means you know, kind of keep flipping because the hot always keep flipping today you're strong tomorrow you're weak. Today you're happy to Mario said to you today you're hopeful tomorrow depressed, so eventually it keeps flipping on you and it's not constant. That's why it was called alcohol. So people, people they tend to forget Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says Yakubu Adam protectable Maha Slaton and Helsel waterlemon. You might wonder why is this luck on this person's you know, pocket or basically the phone. Because as people grow older, panela their tiny little
possessions that they have in their hands become the dearest thing for them. Sometimes it's just a spoon. I wonder if I can get you tons of this spoon? No for them. This is the one it's the it's their cup. It's their their tiny little, let's say pillow or whatever that they have of little possessions. It becomes a dangerous thing to them. And sort of like xlsm says that as people grow older, they grow older and two things grow with them means it doesn't come to an end. No, it even grows bigger and bigger with them. What are these two things, I'll have water, the lemon and the meaning of a house, the venerable house is the desire the desire to have more possessions, the
desire to have ownership love for wealth, basically, it grows with them, and total and the desire to live longer life,
even though they know that they're going now closer to death. But you can still see the lifestyle lists do these used to think that they don't even think of death that they can live forever. And even though that you know that they basically they can do whatever they accommodate the wealth. It's not gonna be for them and few maybe weeks or months or even years, they still work like the living eternity in that session that Adam and Adam will grow old and do things will never basically and will never stop growing with them. The desire to have more and the desire to live longer.
And when it comes to the minor piano there is some what we call ultimate sola and that's also the title of a book by chef Omar Suleiman Ashkar Rahim, Allah Donna recommend that for you as part of the discussion on the subject and shallow that's available in both in Arabic and English language, the minor resurrection of teramoto surah by a chef, almost lemon aashka. But the Amata Sora. This is considered the man of gamma. Why? Because again, we said that this whoever dies, for them, death is their piano, it's over once you die, your own piano has already been established for you.
But what happens when people die when people die? life comes in different formats. So there's that format of life before even the soul entered, you enter the body. And that's when the soul as well the last panel data, then that soul comes down when the body is already in the rooms. That's the second format of life. And that's when I give the end of the command to breathe that soul into the body, the wounds and eventually the babies are becoming an active living being. And that is still considered a temporary lifestyle until they grow big enough and healthy enough to sustain life. Then when they're born, that's when everything changes basically the form of life that we know starts
with them. And eventually until they die when they die there is another form of life, that's when the soul is on a different different space, a different dimension of life. It's called Alberta.
And that is we're going to speak about inshallah as well. But that's when it's like a transition between this world and the hereafter. No one is yet there until the last panda give the commands for this world to come to an end and the production begins. And people then eventually start before the last panel with Allah and then they will be judged.
What is death? Now we all we all know what death is. But there are definitions, technical definitions of death, even specifically in the medical field today, it's one of these problematic issues for Muslim scholars to define death, and considering brain death as a technical death as well, because in the technical field in the technical field, if a person assumed to be dead, basically clinically dead, meaning they are now on machines, and they're just they're still breathing, though, and the heart is still pumping. But with the support with the support devices, of course, this is considered death, clinically speaking, but islamically, there are elements, they
still do not consider this as a complete definition of death. Because the actual definition of death when the soul completely departs from the body completely means no functions whatsoever does in the body, that's when this person is considered dead. That's actually the actual definition. And it's taken from the last panel, what Allah says a lot of emphasis in mot ability and thermodynamics. So there are two kinds of deaths, he says.
So Allah takes the source at the time of their death, and those that do not die during their sleep means basically that while you're sleeping, that's considered a minor death as well, when the soul is partially not attached to the body until you recover and you wake up after that.
We say that minor word fat in the Arabic language is sleeping, the Messenger of Allah, Allah semi mentioned the Hadith, that when people go to sleep, the souls kind of would be roaming around in that spiritual room. Until just like if you want to mention something to make it closer to understand, in our terminology of our time, you could say just like a Bluetooth scanner kind of system, the soul is roaming around, but it's still attached in a certain way to you, the moment you the moment it's time for you to wake up, suddenly your body reacts to the sudden maybe entrance of the of the soul into the body one more time, but still, there is not dead. And still there is life.
But so that life is kind of different a little bit.
So death comes in two ways. There is the major warfare for us. That's what we consider the actual warfare, the actual death when we talk about death, or mount in the Arabic language. That is exactly the one that we're talking about over here. The minor one we don't say death about it, we don't say mount we say actually without or noun. But here this is considered the actual death, the actual offer of the person or the body.
Now, we mentioned we mentioned that the technical definition of death recovered that we said there's a difference between the technical and the technical definition of that and Muslims, they believe that the actual death happens when the soul completely departs from the body. And it was mentioned in the Quran in many ways, when it comes to that was mentioned in many, many ways in the Quran, not just in one format, in many, many ways, one of them a last speaker about tasting their tasting that, you know, when you serve for the benefit of the taste of that that's that's an actual physical expression. So would people taste that? Yeah, possibly. Because when it comes to that actually
starts coming closer and closer. the bitterness of the tastes of Parliament, everything changes in the chemicals of the body will change as well. And as a result, they might have that taste of death could be the idealism of death. Also last spoke about the angel of death, the Angel of Death. So there is an angel assigned to the grab the souls of the people, everyone will die a lot of hunter says that every soul shall die, colonna, ups and cottonmouth. And Allah spoke about death reaches the throat, and speak about the graves and the cemeteries and so on. So Allah mentioned death in the Quran in many, many different ways, not just talking about dying, but different different basically
experiences or events relative to the subject of death as well.
And is considered in the sun, the destroyer of all pleasures. Just like we said, if you think that you're living eternity, remind yourself a death that will help you shall become more focused on what you do. And if you think that your life is miserable, remember that this could be the best escape for you. But you asked Allah subhanaw taala to bring the best for you in this dunya and in the
one that strikes, how should we react to this? The first thing we win that strikes is people suffer from what we call them. Psychological note the agony of death, even the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he himself he went through this as well, even though sudo la sallallahu Sallam went through the agony of death. Allah mentioned the Masuda cough was a sacrificial Moti will help. And then toxication of death will bring the truth meaning when people get to that level, it's so painful that it gets so disoriented and that's why maybe you see some people in need.
They get to that moment to that level, suddenly they start saying things you don't even know if they know what they're talking about. And maybe many people, they have seen some elders, as it is that moment, almost moment of truth, which is the moment of death almost, they start calling their parents calling their loved ones, even though they've been dead for so long. Suddenly, they're saying, where's my Mom, where's my dad. So basically, even though they're this age, but they're calling right now, someone who died before so this is some of the science shows that they're getting to that level, or at that moment, basically, of that. So everybody, everybody will have the taste of
death. And part of it is the agonies of death. How much that depends. last panel might not help people to make the death sudden, and when it's sunny and quick, the pain might be less other people might go through some
pains of death, like what happened to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So almost 14 days of his last, the last days of the Prophet service, Mr. Almost 14 days, in which he was going through lots of pain sub Allahu alayhi wasallam
that has many causes. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he
gave in how people when it comes to that how people are completely heedless, when they plan for that for the last, which is again, just like I said, when you balance it would be okay, but without balancing, that's when it becomes worse, that's when the planning becomes wrong. So the in this diagram that you see here on on the slide, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he drew the man, and he made basically like the line represents this human being. And that that goes all the way outside a box, a square. And on that line, there are so many so many lines coming from the sides, right and left, the Prophet xlsm said that this is the example of the human being. And the human being always
plans beyond his limits. So when you plan you're always beyond the plan block beyond your limit. But Allah subhanho wa Taala maybe has given you a very short limited time. However, how do people when do people die, spot on many things happen in your life could be a cause of death to you. But Allah chooses not to make this the cause of death for you. by car accident, sometimes eating something that it's poisonous, whatever, but they recover and you move on. Other people's have hunted, they might have less, you know, dangerous incidents, but suddenly, it becomes the cause of death. for them. There are so many causes for this. However, if Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah azza wa jal
did not cause any of these things to be your cause of death, old age will be the ultimate cause of death by the will of Allah subhanaw taala. Because when you reach a specific age, there is no the body cannot function properly. And therefore that when the soul says that the body is no longer holding the essence of life, it just departs. And that's why the soldier leaves the body, when the body is not in a position to sustain life independently. That's when the soul departs. And that's all happening again, by the will of Allah subhana wa.
In the Arabic poetry, they say,
Man lamium would be safe matter, variety, da da, da that will move to our hidden, which means Millennium would be safe, if you will, if you don't die by the sword, you will die because of something else. The other tell us about the causes of death are so many, but they all lead to the same thing, which is death. This is inescapable. I know in science, everybody tries to find you know that
the exit of life and eventually they would like to create some sort of whatever medications to help them kind of live longer. And it is part of this culture, unfortunately, because the culture is the culture of the dunya. And they don't think of the ACA, so they're fighting death by anyways, they trying to call it they try to cheat death, there is no such such such thing as cheating death, because if you don't die because Allah subhanho wa Taala did not want that us at this moment. So that's why many people as they grow older, they want us to live a youthful life. So what do they do, they alternate their body, they change themselves, they would like to look youthful all the time,
they try to exercise they try to shoot themselves with a lot of drugs and medications to live, you know, a longer whatever they can do, but a lot of how they made it very clear in the Quran could lunasin that amount, every soul will taste death. Everybody shall test. So basically, for those who always try to, as they call it, cheating death, they should take it easy and just get ready and prepared for it.
The Guardian Angels, why do people sometimes go on some incidents and events in life that causes usually cause death, but don't die? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala assigned angels as protectors and guardians, when the time comes, they let go. So these angels are responsible to protect you from any any incident that causes death, but when the
time comes that Your time is up. That's when Allah subhanaw taala give the command for these angels to the girl. And then this would happen Carlota Allah, when Allah Kuma Hatfield in kurama, catimini alma mater, Phantom, these are the angels who always adjusted everything and always protect you. And Allah penalty ustelecom have a deal, he always sends guardians, and then had either jahad aka moto furusato when the time that comes to them, then the other end is means the end of the world take that soul and that'll be the end of it.
And somehow, I mean, I know that so many people would say basically about the end, the guardian angels, basically, they would say I remember I would remember some time I would be walking like someone. One brother actually told me that exactly that he was walking sometime and somewhere and one of those big cities, he didn't pay attention. There was actually there was like a hole in front of him. And it wasn't paying attention to that. Certainly, he felt he said, I felt that someone literally pushed me.
I wasn't paying attention, but certainly as he was about to put his foot in there, because I literally felt that somebody pushed me. Someone someone else says Paul, I mean, he said that he went into a car accident. And if you look at the car, you would never imagine anyone would survive that accident. But it says the entire family came out walking. The entire family came out of that car walking, except he said his mom was still the strap. And when he when he looked into the car, she was still there and he was asking Are you okay, but so Hannah the mother even though she's in the car upside down, so strapped to the seatbelt. She's asking him she says, Are you guys all okay?
Somehow the mother, even though she's upside down. And a lot of she was ready to go not but she was still strapped into the car. She didn't care about herself at the moment. She was thinking about her children. She goes, Oh, you guys are okay outside. And then of course, he took that seatbelt off and pulling out of the car. But when people see that car, they said there is no way anyone can survive that. So how this happened? Yes, there is a lot of physic that allows upon me this, this thing to happen and become possible. But also with the help of our last panel with Allah and assistant of this God guardian angels.
When does when does death come? Nobody knows. When does this come about those who commit suicide?
Don't they know when death comes?
What do you guys think? If someone just grabs a gun and shoots themselves, they die. They decided I'm gonna die at 12pm this on such as the day and they shot themselves, even though they decided but eventually before that, they know that they're gonna die in that moment. No, the death was all determined by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the means of death are many one of them is suicide. So it's not that they decided, Allah Subhana Allah knew that they're going to die on that moment. And he made that the cause of death for them. So for those who try to calculate their age, the possibility of dying tomorrow, or because you know, the weather is getting bad in Texas right now.
So it must be the end of time. So I'm dying next week or no, no, you can't calculate that it's not going to happen. But what we know about death is it's coming soon. That's all we know about it. How soon Allahu Allah, but it always comes soon. And something we keep reflecting we should always reflect on is that everybody is really everybody is born with a sentence of death.
Everybody is born with that sentence of death. So you're gonna be born with a certificate of the you're gonna die at some point. One is that a lot of data on
how to prepare for this as a believer, you know, instead of again, getting depressed because I'm going to die I'm not going to enjoy I'm not going to finish my book, my career, my this my dad and all that stuff. Instead of getting depressed over these issues, just you know, think being positive. And think of the opportunity that you can get when you inshallah, work on your, on your preparation for the ACA, so always prepared for that maintain your status, sound belief in the last panel data, for example, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam maintained obligations that Allah made obligatory upon you all this you keep doing that maintain your duty, you just maintain your duty and Allah subhana
wa will take care of things for you, but Allah azza wa jal
Toba repentance is very, very important to have from what from every single sin that you might have committed in your life. Whether it's something current or something in the past, maybe you've done things in the past. You don't need to know if you've already repented from maybe you don't know. So you always need to maintain a healthy Toba healthy relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala by repenting to Allah. So Allah azza wa jal at every possible moment. Again, even if these things been done in the past, you still need to deal with it.
The shallot and keep repenting from them even in the present one of the hidden ones while he was in crying. So a man came to him knowing that he was righteous man he goes, why are you crying? Mashallah, you're such a good man this and that, why are you crying so much? So the righteous man told him, he said, Have you ever committed a sin in your life? He said, Of course, I'm sure I did. He does. Have you. Do you know that Allah Subhana Allah that this was registered in your record, because of course it was recorded in my record registered, says, Did you do you know that this was sent up to Allah subhana wa Tada. He said that, yeah, of course, Allah knows about it now. And he
said, of course, the Judas repent to Allah azza wa jal from that sin. He said, I did. I made my repentance my Toba. Then he asked him, Are you sure that Allah subhanaw taala accepted that Toba? He said Well, does not I'm sure I'm not sure about because then go ahead and Cry. Cry for these sins. Maybe Allah subhana wa tada would have mercy on you and forgive you the sins. So it's this constant reminder that you do your part you do Toba but still having hope that Allah subhana wa Taala will forgive you and accept that Toba from you
wishing for that. What if someone was living a miserable life and they say you know what, that's it. I want to wish for this. If you decide to wish for that. Don't do that, in that fashion rather, just wish for the best. As the professor says in the Hadith let the man hadoken Amontillado. Naturally, you shouldn't be asking for that just because difficult is the following you rather ask Allah subhana wa Tada. If life is good for you better for you. There are like sends in your life. And if death is better for you, that Allah subhanho wa Taala take you from this world. That's what you ask Allah to bring what is best for you whether it's death, or life.
And the desire to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala is one of the things that believers should always think of Manohar Bella kala, habla Holika, if you truly love to be the last panel, that Allah would love to meet you. But usually when we know that we're missing, missing a lot of our duties and obligations with a large region, that's when we start becoming suspicious. Or maybe we're not very confident about our desire to me, the last panel, Donna, always hoping they would have an extra chance to remedy or rectify our situations and our relationship with Allah as the origin But still, always I'd have hoped with Allah, that you love the miracle of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now the
arrival of death when death comes, there are signs of ruin the soul, when it's taken out, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he, he said that the site will go after the soul. That's why the eyes sometimes are actually looking up, or sometimes looking to the side. Why because when the soul is taken out, the site, the site goes after the soul. And that would be the last thing, the last connection between life and death. And that's as soon as that you always covering the eyes of the disease, of course, you know, you see them in that position, you cover their eyes. So there are specific signs for this, you know, they're very well known. Some of these communists being you know,
a certain position of fatigue,
some sometimes inability to respond or talk, or even sometimes a sighting of angels, like you know, you've been on the grid on the on the bed, and the people that start smiling sometimes they have some sort of like a
kind of phenomena that happens to them that is like out of this world. And that's why they get excited or maybe they get scared. Why because maybe they have seen the angels of death or the angels of mercy, or the angels of the other and tournament.
The Hadith is a very long Hadith very famous hateable. But I've been asked about the law, no law in which the prophet SAW some described the departure of the soul of the believer and disbelievers. But he mentioned salatu salam that the angels will come and when the Angel of Death takes the soul, he immediately gives it to the group of angels will take it up to meet with Allah subhana wa tada for initial screening. Now that so it was a sort of a believer will come easy, and the skinning will be easier, and they will be sent down to earth. And if it wasn't, wasn't that righteous, the departure will be very difficult, and the skinning will also be difficult and they will be wearing the other
perhaps we'll be voting for them in the grave.
If you are attending a dying person, what do you do? The most important thing that you do around
someone who's dying is to always speak that which is good. always speak that which is good, even if you assume that he or she are not going to be listening. Don't assume that now always assume that they are going to be listening to what you're saying. And therefore, it's very important that you always mentioned that which is good and the best that you say is your mind and with the word La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah.
Right after that. The Sunnah is that we always prepare the body for burial. Now, we had a whole session before on how to prepare a dead body. And one of the things that unfortunately is missing in the Muslim community is that people
Individually volunteering to go and participate in the preparing of the body for burial. You know, if you really feel that your heart is not is not responding to, you're not seeing softness and tenderness in your heart, I highly recommend that you volunteer to wash and prepare a dead body and participate in burial. Yes, we do participant and burial we take the body to the to the grave, and we see that, but there's nothing like being there from the first moment. When you see a person dies, and then they take them to, you know, to the funeral home, preparing the body washing the body, and then you know, shot in the body, it's it's very important to, for those who think that they have,
you know, the heart is very, very solid, to soft in your heart, I really, really recommend that you volunteer your time sometimes to go and do some every now and then you don't have to do it frequently. But every now and then so that you can fit that in shallow data softness of the heart.
We discussed many actually have questions regarding the subject of debt, I'm gonna go skip that. We discussed also the subject of the good and the bad. And it's not for us to judge people's and this is not for us as human beings. However, some people they see some indications, as a professor, some says that one of the signs of a good end is a person dies, without even the preparation of the forehead. And that's a good sign for a person dying on Friday, dying in a state of Nevada, you performing a murder, that's a very good sign as well. The good mentioned when people talk about an individual, they mentioned nothing but good that she was much an amazing lady. She was like
everything in the community. So and so these are good indications that they handle, they have done a great job when they were alive. Same thing for you, as a guy that people they know that handle, I've done such a great, you know, good deal of goodness, these are the legacy that you leave behind. And when people hear your name, they make the right for you hopefully that will raise in shallow data, your status as over the loss of panel data. And finally, we spoke about the soul and what happens to it. And we said that our rule, the ultimate, you know, question is what is a rule? We know what the bodies the bodies made as the last passes from plane means from the earth and for the soul, Allah
azza wa jal kept that secret and kept the secret for himself and only for himself. subhana wa, Donna was, I don't know cannot rule for the rule human Amira be Rama ot to mineral element Illa Allah, and they asked you or Mohammed about the soul, say the soul is of the affair of my Lord, and mankind have not been given of knowledge. Except little means wherever you think you know about the soul, you still don't know anything about it. Because this is a hidden secret that Allah had kept for him for himself. What we know about us, although it's coming from heaven, it's not from Earth. So it's not an earthly component. It's a heavenly component. It's very subtle, and you can't see it, but
it's there. It's there. And that's why the body is alive. It's because of that. So the source of life for the body is the soul. But what is the source of life for the soul? That's all different story, not about the argument than us is the soul itself or something different? If the soul the nerves is the function of the soul? Many many extra debates will discuss that and any last year what around the subject, but still, it's a hidden secret and no one would really know the meaning and the essence of soul except Allah subhanho wa Taala and he won't know anything about it until the day of judgment. Now last panel, data maker and good energy man and Allah azza wa jal make us among those
will be righteous in this dunya and get that award inshallah and Jonathan for those 100 a lot of brand new salon Amina Mohammed Anwar Elio cyber center. Any questions?
So I just had a question regarding
that you mentioned that they're
not just 99 but many would say yeah, okay. And and then there's
the is in sort of talking about, you know, where
would have died if they hadn't gone out. So, is it possible for for us based off of the decisions and choices we make,
to kind of alter alter the period of time?
So the question basically, can you can you have not a decision, but can you have the influence over the timeframe of your life, meaning, you know, that if you go if you go fighting it, there's 100, there's 99% chance that you're going to die. So can I escape fighting so I can prolong my life. I mean, if you believe that this is how your life is going to be prolonged up to you, that's fine. But take the example of her who literally allowed and he was chasing death
he was chasing this
Literally That's what he said I was going in every single battle and there is no spot on my bike doesn't have a scar from one of these battles. Still here I am dying on my bed like the camel dies. Then he said his very famous statement, fellow named Giovanna, that the eyes of the coward have no rest. Meaning if you if you think that going there is going to you're going to be this is not what kills you. What causes basic maybe you're running your own attitude, your own fear and weakness. Still, yeah, I mean, can you prolong your life by escaping activity that might be a cause of death. That's a possibility, but you're not prolonged in it per se. Because Allah subhana wa Tada, by his
knowledge, he knew that you aren't going to have this kind of paranoia. So therefore, he said, this is going to be given, they're going to give maybe, maybe longer life, but it's not the law, the long life anymore. I know that makes a difference is the quality of this life. Imagine if you live another maybe 15 years, but all what you do is becoming a health freak.
You always basically do Don't touch anything. You don't eat anything. You just always what kind of life is that? The quality of life is very important. Don't Don't try to escape death. Just prepare for it. Milan. Yes.
Dying gunfighter the professor mentioned, it's one of the good signs. One of the good signs when someone dies fill it later tomorrow night to Friday or on Friday. It's a good sign. But that doesn't mean that the person who does on Friday is always good. Because for the believer, Allah subhanho wa Taala might choose for them to die, not just on Friday night in a more honorable actually situation where, you know, defending himself martyr or something like that. So eventually, it doesn't have to be on Friday, but it's just one of those good signs. Voila. Now,
you mentioned about suicide.
Suicide is haram in Islam. And we said that it's one of the causes of that. So how can we relate these two things together, still, I mean, they they choose to, they choose to end their lives. And but they can't do this unless Allah wills that this can be a cause of death. So suicide, it is a cause of death because a lot of animated so they chose that path. And Allah subhana wa allows it. So eventually, that doesn't mean what they did was right. because not everything Allah allows is he's pleased with Allah allows people to drink to commit crimes to fornication. So all these things are happening by the word of Allah subhana wa Taala in terms of his universal world, that having these
things for the test, the good and bad and and the man Cooper and so on, but what Allah subhana wa tada is pleased with is the positive one, and that is to always doing the good, and stay away from the evil. So even though we say suicide is something that by the will of Allah happens by the will of Allah azza wa jal but Allah would not be pleased with if a person chose that path while on
a car crash or diagnosed with cancer whatever that may be.
However, suicide in that case, it is there is because Allah upon you by his knowledge, this person is going to take that path and as a result he says if he tries the suicide I'll make the life basically ends there for him. Allah allowed suicide to be a cause of this so we chose that by his own well then is going to count for basically for them and that's gonna happen that is gonna happen for sure. Well, Ah yes.
Like what you're learning is your opposition from the Hellfire or this is your
agenda but because God and now you're gonna be in this position, but then the Day of Judgment, we know that we have several people that have lost
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah will do with them.
Forgive them Yes. Okay.
My name is Jana
believers and non believers that means at this moment you will know for sure.
So let me rephrase the question. Basically, if someone dies and they end up let's say me, Allah protect us all. What
of the grave audible cover.
Can their status change one that there was reduction happen is even though they end up in an add up in the grave, but can this be when they go to the judgment and the death resurrection, for example, would they be forgiven and the interval generator when there is a chance, because the process of a salami even mentioned that a double cover, actually a double cover is like a pothole, which means is purifies the person. So if this was enough to rectify their wrongdoing in the dunya, they won't be held accountable for anything afterwards. And so they might end it might end up in the agenda. Similarly, those who did well in the dunya, they might, they might have name and agenda. But still,
when they go to an author, they might actually be in a different condition because they messed up with the deeds depends on the situation. Well, our data suggests
to the this is the one who was dying. The question is, who is the one who gives the good or bad news for the person who's dying? Is it the angel of death that comes to the person and tell them listen to your bad guy come out? The answer Yeah, the professor says in the Hadith that the engine will come and he will say a year to
come out or the pure soul or good soul and generator Savita, he says that the bad soul come out. So basically all these given him the good and the bad news. At that moment, does it mean that this person is going to be doomed altogether and to jahannam depends. If they were more hiding, they said lie Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, they might be just disobedience. So they're going to be held accountable for some of their sins and mistakes. And then eventually they will end up in agenda. But that's not of course, the risk, you know, the chance by saying if we're going to end up in January handler, blaming those who say the statement really they don't understand the meaning of being
agenda. mela particulars often Jana, as we continue with the series, inshallah, we're going to be discussing loss of gender and gender as well. And last question, yes.
Sir, again, the status of the soul.
We discussed many things under this chapter, actually, regarding the soul and how it looks like and where does it come from? And how does it end and so on, like, on the soul on the soul and the body? So part of it is basically the question is, how does it look like on that day, or during basically that status and Bertha, does it?
But basically, does the rule? Is it attached to the body not attached to the body? That's the whole argument, is that a synergy among other sects? The punishment of the grave doesn't happen on both? Or does it happen only on the soul? Because when you open a grave, there is no body? But what are you talking about? What is the what is the punishment was the name, these are part of humankind? But what we believe is that actually, it does happen.
Those souls talk to each other. That's the question among the Anima. Also, they asked, Do souls talk to each other, we know that Allah has Shahada, the source of the martyrs, or the actual agenda there are separate from the the Chamber of life that we have other souls. So they have been given a privilege of being there. So they might have this communication. But the souls of other people will remain in that Chamber of life and thereby in
basically disconnected from this world, but do they communicate with each other? Well, a lot of them they don't? Well, other than that, they don't they don't communicate now. Yes.
Well, the question is now since we know that there's difference between the clinical and the Islamic definition of the How can we reconcile between the families, that's the one they have someone who's already on the machines and the ventilators and so forth. So how can we reconcile that actually the case by case scenario, you can't give a general answer to the subject because it depends on the stage of the person and and then the patient, if there was even a legal issue such as you know, the Do Not Resuscitate resisted basically signature that was in there or not all these things will be taken consideration, I would say case by case scenario, but if clinically proven that this person,
there is no hope for this person to recover, and there is no way they're going to recover. Even if they take the machines off and taking the machine is going to be sick like for them. It's going to be like a certain death in this case.
Because that's what it is that when they remove the machine, it's not like a die because they remove the machines as much as the last panel or telemedicine or the cause for the death at this time. Well, Ah, yes.
What set again?
If someone does under oppression or under maybe someone under torture saying,
Well, I hope that they will become a Shahada as martyrs, like what happens in many, many Muslim countries these days, unfortunately, I take the example what happened in Egypt in Bangladesh right now in Burma, and these places people are dying under torture, they're dying under in the prisons of tyrants, with no hope of coming out and see that the same thing as well. I'm Stan soulfully wonders if a lot of distant death for them under these circumstances as long as they have faith in their hearts and believe in Allah subhana wa tada I hope that allows you to accept them as Shahada malata
if they're, if they were not fighting for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala if they did not die with faith in allies, though they died for a political cause. They just believed in their and their own political cause such as the land, the nationality, these these sacred banners. These are not actually there's not banners that Allah subhanho wa Taala would accept. As for Shaheed as a professor of sciences, and the hundreds of people that died Hamilton wanted me That means they die out of you know, partisanship and zeal for a specific cause other than for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala they don't count them as Shahada Well,
I guess we're gonna have to finish it in Charlottetown and then next week when Alaska when we come back, we will start with the day of resurrection and the first thing that we will talk about shala is the science of the Day of Judgment minor signs and major signs we took and we take them one at a time but in the late Allah next week, we shall just few announcements for the very large Muslim community so I would like to remind you that this Friday after Saturday Shall we have
