Series: Yasir Qadhi - Kitab At-Tawheed
Shaykh Yasir Qadhi divulges explicit details of Chapters 20 to 23 which highlights the stance of the Shariah on the acts of showing veneration towards graves of Prophet, saints and other holy people.
The Prophet ﷺ said: “May Allah curse the Jews and the Christians, for they have taken the graves of their Prophets as places of worship.”
Jundub reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah ﷺ say five days before he passed away, “I stand acquitted before Allah that I took any one of you as an intimate friend, for Allah has taken me as His intimate friend, just as he took Abraham as His friend. Had I taken any one of my nation as an intimate friend, I would have taken Abu Bakr as my friend. Verily, those before you turned the graves of their prophets and righteous into places of worship, so do not take graves as places of worship. I forbid you from doing that.”
Jabir reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ prohibited plastering the graves, sitting upon them, and building structures over them.
Abu Sa’id al-Khudri reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “The entire earth has been made a place of prayer, except for graveyards and washrooms.”

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam while Alison Villa chapter number 20 the condemnation of the one who worships a lot at the grave of a righteous man. And how then does this amount to worship of the man?
This Milla in Alhamdulillah in Atlanta, who will assign a witness tell Pharaoh who comfortable when I would have been the human Cerulean fusina woman say I say I'm Elena, Maria de la, la la, la la de la, La ilaha illallah wa Whoa, la sharika. Mohammed Abu are solo by the last topic that we discussed was concerning what?
over exaggerating the status of a righteous or a pious person. Now this is a next step or a very related topic, and that is that evil worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. By the way, the chapter titled translations is incorrect.
It is translated in your book as the condemnation or actually the actual title, I read it for you on Arabic magic, I'm in profitable activity of human Abdullah in the public in the Father. Basically, what has been narrated concerning the prohibited or the condemnation of he who worships Allah, at the grave of a righteous person, and then the opposite, such as either as a devil, then how much greater will this end if he actually worship that righteous person? So the correct translation is that which has been narrated concerning the condemnation of he who worships Allah at the grave of righteousness. So how much greater would descend be if he worships that man? So basically, this
chapter we're talking about someone who is not worshiping the grave, he is worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala, he is worshiping his creator, but the problem is that he is worshiping his creator at a grease. So he is using that grave as a means or as a place to worship Allah not so great. And even this has been extremely forbidden and disliked, and actually curse as we shall read on to the point is that the author is saying that even those that worship Allah at a grace parkcrest, to how much greater distance, how much greater the evil is they actually worship the person is that's great. And obviously, this is a really good chapter from one before the one before it was basically
exaggerating the status of the pious people. And one of the manifestations or one of the aspects of exaggerating the status of a pious person is that you take his grave as a place of Baraka of obtaining more blessings. Okay, so if you were to even worship a lot, his grave you're not worshiping the grace. If even you were to worship Allah subhana wa tada at his grave, thinking that that place is a better place for you to worship Allah. Then this tool is an act that has been condemned in the Quran and the Sunnah.
In the so here, is a Rabi alongside on her reported musella mentioned to a large messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that in Abyssinia, she saw a church full of pictures and statues. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when a righteous man or pious worshiper among them dies, they build a place of worship over his grace, and set up all kinds of fixtures and statues. They are the worst of all creatures before Allah. They combine the two evils worshipping at the grave, and making graven images and statues. And okay, this last phrase that the author translates as they combine the two evils worshiping at the grave and making graven images such as important note, this is not a
part of the heavy, the translator made a mistake, this is not a part of the heavy, the heavy finishes at the phrase, they are the worst of the create a lot of creation. Very important Marxist in your books is a big, big, big mistake. The remaining portion of this sentence is from the author's. Unfortunately, translators did not point that out. The author says that. So these people, they combined two evils, the evil of worshipping or the evil of grades and the evil loves picture. This sentence is not a part of the Hadees. Please note that in your books, yeah. So this is the first ad that we take in this chapter. On the cinema on the cinema is one of the wives of the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she was of those that immigrated to augustinians you know that in the time of Makkah, during the Mexican period for Muslims integrated to either senior or modern day Ethiopia. Okay, they immigrated here because there was a pious and jetskiing there that would allow them to worship Allah subhana wa Tada. So on the sentiments describing these churches that she saw in our seniors, because as a senior was a Christian country, and she said that she was describing it as in a wondrous way, praising this, but she said that she saw churches, and they had pictures of pious people, or they have pictures of their saints in these churches. So what did the
prophet SAW them say? He described why they have these pictures. He said, these people, the Jews and the Christians, and this happens to our times amongst the Christians, these people, when a pious man amongst them dies, when he used to die, they would build a machine. They would build a mustard on top of his grave and they would make these pictures
They would draw these pictures of this pious man.
Okay, now what happens in our time? And why is it especially amongst the Roman Catholics, they have so many things. They have so many icons, they have so many people that they look up to and respect and reviews. And all of these people, they are not prophets, they are saints, they are pious people, but what do they do? They draw their images in their churches, and they put it in the places of worship. Okay, so the Prophet system is describing this and it is exactly as he said, that whenever a pious men amongst them dies, they elevate him to the status of a saint, and then they draw this picture of the saint and they put it in their churches. Now, what did the Prophet system say after
that? He says, These are the worst of a lot creation. These people are the worst of Allah's creation. And then the author explained in the last sentence, he said, he said that these people they combine to fitness or they combine two evils, firstly, the evil of grave worship, in other words, that they have built a machine over the grave. Secondly, the evil of drawing pictures and showing reverence or worship to these pictures. Now, the point is, why are these people the worship of Allah creation, this is because they have done acts that lead to major shifts, even though some of them might not be doing major shift, in a sense, they might not be worshipping that icon or that
statue or that picture, but because of the fact that they built the place of worship over that person's grave. And because of the fact that they drew that, that image of that man, and they placed it in that place of worship in their merchants, this is the easiest way that will lead you to major shifts. This is one of the greatest assets of major trades. And in fact, in our time zone and Catholics in particular, are the most apparent in their schilke of Allah subhana wa tada you go to their churches and you find that they bow down to icon actual idols of Mary and Jesus and sometimes even Yani saints, sometimes even people that are not even in their eyes position and quote unquote
sons of God, what was the point is that they have been an asset is so close to major shifts, that electronic data has been caused them to be the worst of the creation because it is as if the act of doing events It is as if it is a major shift. Because this is you have nothing left between this and major city except for your intention. Outwardly, it's the same thing. You have your icon, you are worshiping that icon you have built in a couple of degrees, it is as if you are worshiping that's great. So the point is this chapter that is about what worshiping Allah subhana wa look at these places, these Christians the early ones amongst them they didn't choose to worship these icons and
images but look at Roman Catholics at our time. Look at these degeneration our times they don't make this differentiation they actually they actually sacrifice they actually give their altars actually give their worship to these icons now.
also notable Claudine, what's the News reported that it shall be alongside on her narrated when the death approach. When death approached Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he began to draw a piece of cloth over his face, sometimes covering and sometimes removed, removing it because of distress. He fell in love while he was Selim said in this state, a lot of curse be upon the Jews and the Christians for taking the graves of their prophets as places of worship. Does he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warn the people about their actions? Has there not been any fear of making the Prophet tourism's grave a place of worship, he's a loss, his grave would have been as open as the
grave of his companion.
What's been recorded, I don't know where he's turning that from. So to include translation,
I have to report that
when the prophet SAW the love audio send them
when the pocket system was close to his desk, okay. When he was about to pass away close to that he was on his deathbed. He took a piece of cloth and he started wiping his face, meaning that he was feeling a lot of pain. He was in a lot of stress, in a sense, he was sweating profusely, but he'd be wiping his place is his forehead. And sometimes he would cover himself up with his, or sometimes he would fall into a sight and consciousness and come out of that unconsciousness. So he said, why he was in this state. In other words, so close to death. He said, Allah curses upon the Jews and the Christian land, Allahu yahood, when the thought of why is electrospun, the Jews and the Christians,
because they took they took the graves of their profits as massages. So I want to ask you, why did the process I mentioned this at his desk,
he is going to die, he is so close to death himself. So he is scared, he is fearful that his own people might do this. So right before he dies, he warns them over and over again, we're going to come to some more knowledge as to alerts curses upon the Jews and the Christians. Why the Muslims have when the Jews and the Christians they took the graves of their prophets as massages as places of worship. And then after this is the statement of Isaiah, this, the remaining portion of the Hadith is David of Isaiah. She says that the processor was warning against what they did, just like we were saying. Now, the reason that the topic of the love radio center is mentioning this curse, is
to warn the Muslims against the act of the Jews and the Christians and
Then he says, And what if not for this prohibition that the Prophet soldiers had engaged, then his grave would be an open place, it would have been open, it wouldn't have been protected and covered, it would have been open, except that they were scared the Sahaba was scared that people would build a machine on top of that this is the proper translation of
the text. I don't know how the author's trying What do you got the translations from? Basically?
Oh, it is.
Okay. Okay. So, the point is, I said things that were it not for this fact, that is the purpose of them warn against this fear, then his grave would have been open, anyone could go and see His grace. But because of the fact that the Sahaba were scared that people might build a mansion on top of it. Because of that, they covered his, they covered his grave, and so therefore, no method was built on it. The point is, once again, the focus of the lesson is stressing the fact that it is not allowed. It is impermissible. It is how long by Yani, the majority of the alumni, the format has included it is haram to build a machine on top of a grease, any grease, even if that grave is the grave of a
prophet, even if I agree with a guru prophet is to build a mess just on top of that grave. And in fact, a less curse is upon the people that do this.
Listen recorded from June COVID, Godzilla will be a lone ranger who narrated I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say only five days before his death. I am free and clear towards a law of having any of you as my colleagues, especially close friends. Verily, Allah has taken me as his colleagues, just as he had taken Ibrahim on he set out as a colleague. If I would have taken anyone from my own as a colleague, I would have taken abubaker as a COVID. Beware those who proceeded before you used to make their profits grave into places of worship. Beware don't take any graves as places places of worship, I forbid you to do so.
He's alojado seldom for forbade this at the end of his life. Now the point is not in this today's recorded by Muslims, once again, very close to the Prophet that Jr. actually says five days before he died, one of the last things agenda ever heard from the hospitalist? So now you can imagine the concern that the political system has, you can imagine the fear that he has, you can imagine the eagerness that he has to guide your father and to warn them against the evil of what the Jews and the Christians did. He said I seek or I i disassociate myself from having any honey from amongst you. Okay, in the sense that what is it honey, by the way, and honey is your close, close friends.
And the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala chose the profits also known as a Harleys automatically negates the fact that the profit can have any other party only unless the title was added. And the proper section of the article is in the sense that because electrodes the profits of the stations to the status, he raised him to the level of Cadiz, that it is not possible for the profit incentive to love anyone, like a lot of times, it is not possible that a lot of hard work either takes a lead other than the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu. I do send them and in another direction the Prophet Ibrahim, a lot of times that it took only 200 the property of Rahim and the Prophet Mohammed Salah
lo said it's a comedy What is it? What do you what do we think Hollywood is very close friends Okay, this is the Arabic wedding of the party, obviously a light right in need of a friend. But this is a means of honoring the Prophet Mohammed cinema giving him this title this is a means of raising his status as a means of the unifying him. So we know then that a lot of it was either chose to people to be a Cadiz out of all of mankind, the Prophet Ibrahim and the Prophet Mohammed Salah lo is an indispensable because electro is a prophet at his honeys. Then the Prophet is saying I cannot be the honey to anyone else. Just like even like in children, we have our quote unquote best friends you
only have one right imagine now the concept of hula, hula, the context of this college ship if you like of Allah subhana wa sallam that Allah subhana wa tada has chosen the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu send it to me as Colleen so this automatically disqualifies the process of having any other honey. But he said, what I take a honey, if it were possible for me to take a cut in. If I could take a holiday from my own mother, it would be a woodworker. It would be a woodworker. What does it show you about? Oh bacus chisako? What does it show you about our bacus
status in relation to the promises that he is the what?
Not just that he is the greatest of the Sahaba because the profit center and we mentioned this this is very good in so many different ideas of the production of war. He specifically mentioned Abacus as the greatest of the Sahaba. And this edit is just one example of that, that he says Well, I should take the honey, if it were possible for me to take a honey, I would have taken Abacus as my colleague. And then the point of that is that we're interested in that indeed those that came before you. They used to build machines over the graves of their profits.
Indeed those that came before you, they used to build the messages on the graves of their profits for the processor and said,
messages indeed do not take graves as places of worship, do not take graves as places of worship, because I forbid you from doing so. Look at how many times the Protestant forbade this act or the way that he forbade it. He says, first of all, he says what happened in the past he said that the people before you leave to take the graves of the prophets as massages, then he says, then do not take graves as places of worship. And then he said, I forbid you from doing so. In other words, three or four times in the same ID, the process of really showing the dangerous is showing the evils of taking graves as places of worship. Now before we move on, obviously,
okay, let me finish, finish the test.
After this key curse, anyone who did any such deed within this context, for the graves is one of these deeds, even if no mischief has been built, this is the meaning of his words. He feared it would be taken as a message that companions never built any place of worship around his grace. Any place which is intended for prayer, or where prayer is performed, has indeed been taken as a messages, just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, the whole earth has been made for me a messages and it is pure and clean. Okay, now, this is obviously the explanation of the author here. Okay, this is not part of the heavy. What he is saying basically, is that the processor
forbade this act right before his death. And then he cursed anyone who did this. Because anyone who took a grave as a place of worship, and then he points out, that when we say Masjid, when we say a place of worship, it doesn't mean that it has to be a physical structure like this machine was sitting in now. But any rather any person that goes to a grave and worship Allah there, he has taken that place, as a listed. So even if you go to a graveyard, it is not a message, you don't build walls and structures in your face. The point is, if you worship next to a grave, you have taken that grave as your message. And this is buried in the last idea that he that he mentioned here is that
this whole earth has been made a mess just for me. But what does it mean? It means that if you worship a lot, any place that place is a mess, and it says that you worship Allah then obviously, this is different from a classification of a mustard and Jenny mustard and silk is a bit different, because this is where a trade and British trade is prohibited. This is where you cannot, you know, you can only remember Allah subhanho wa Taala, certain things are permitted. We're not talking about from a 50 perspective, we're talking about it from the linguistic meaning of messages, in the sense that if you worship a lot, any place, right, then that place is that it is as if it is a machine in
the sense that you're worshiping Allah. So the point is, that if you worship Allah, next to a grave, if you worship Allah, where Grace is present, whether there is a physical structure on that grave or not, is irrelevant. Then Allah curses upon the person who worship Allah that place. Now it is very important to point out, obviously must be in the minds of everyone that he is the father of narcissism warning people against building a mixture on his grave, I guess we know that
his grave is quote unquote, in MSG, okay. How do we understand this? Firstly, it should be realized that the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu, I said, Where was he very?
He was buried where he died. Did he die in the masjid? No, he died in his house. He died in ISIS house. Okay. So he was buried right where he died, he died. So the very place that he died, a hole was dead right there. He was buried there. And this place was outside of the mustard. It was in his house. Okay. So the proper system he was he died and he was buried outside domestic. Now, during the time of the harvest, their house remained outside of the machine. The machine was was connected to the house, as you know, the pocket house was connected to the message, but the message did not envelope the house. It was connected to it. So there was the messages, and then there was the house
separate. What happened was during the time of one of the Omega conifers, I think it was under medical marijuana, if I'm not mistaken.
Basically, he ordered that the mesh should be expanded the order that the mesh should be rebuilt to occupy a number a greater number of people. And so he was the one that ordered that the Met should be expanded from both right and left and that would include the province house. Okay, now the scholars of his time but for the most of them had died. This was in 9400 years, like almost 100 years after prophets death. Okay, most of the Sahaba In fact, in Medina, I don't think there was any hobby present when this occurs. Some of the family were present in other cities one or two. You know, when was the last time I wanted us to have the dice 110 110 which side was up?
I don't remember. But as far as I remember, I needed the last hunting guide 110 100 Yes. I think alone is a lesson in Medina 1973. Let me check it out. But I don't I don't recall any Sahabi being present in Medina at this time. The point is the scholars of Medina they
rejected. So we are not going to obey your commandments. Okay. And they prohibited the Khalifa from doing this past. The halifa said, If you disobey me, I'm going to send an army to attack you and forcefully build domestic the way that I wanted to do. Okay. And he had his political reasons for doing it, which we don't have time to get into. He had political reasons, he had a political agenda for spending the mister. Okay. So basically, despite the fact that the scholars did not want him to include the Prophet, graven images, the halifa had his way because he had the authority. So since that time until our time, the prophets grave wasn't included in inside the physical structure of the
masjid. However, we should note that, firstly, the grace was not exposed to people. Never, never in Islamic history with the gloves, the grip ever exposed to people, rather, it was always covered up. Okay. Secondly, when the halifa orders that the man should be that the message of the envelope inside the grave in the sense of the grave, the envelope inside the mustard the other way around, excuse me, the scholars of that time, at least they could do one thing. And that was they built a triangular walls, they built a triangular wall, so that if a person were to face the grave, he would not actually be facing a grave, he would be facing a triangular wall. In other words, he could not
face the grave directly. Okay, so basically a pentagon type structure was built around the profit screen. Okay, do you understand the thing if someone were to Facebook, and there was a grave between him and the fibula, then there would be a triangular wall like that, a triangular walks, that would then become a square at the back of the Pentagon, like this structure, is that clear, you understand the how, what the what the what the scholars were able to do is that even if a person were standing there, then he would not see a square structure, he would see a pentagonal structure. So he would never be able to face the grave directly. Rather, there'll be a triangular wall there. And after
this time, more and more barriers will build around and around the prophecy of so I think in our times are like six or seven barriers between us and the actual Grave of the process. And the last one being the actual House of ISIS, which is still sending the actual House of ISIS still sending it was not destroyed. Okay, around the ISIS house, we'll do a round thing around that round thing with just the pentagonal structure around the data structures more and more as more and more generations and dynasties came, they kept on building things around it until an archives we have a huge massive structure. Okay, even though the Prophet's house was so small that it could not even live down with
this would extend it, except that the processing would have to tell her the mover particularly who says that very small house, okay. Still in our time that has been expanded to such an extent that it occupies maybe like 20 meters by 30 meters or something huge area, okay. The point is that this is a historical asset occurs, it was not due to the Bahamas, the prophet was in his himself was buried inside the masjid rather than actually existed before the Prophet time. Although the scholars say that we cannot consider this grace to be actually inside the machine in the sense that you cannot see it. And
it has been protected and covered in this manner. However, they also say that this is a special case, a special scenario, we're not allowed to do this anywhere else in the world. Okay, this is something that occurred and in fact, many scholars still they say that it's best just to make sure the worst were removed or reconstructed so that the grave occurs outside the mystery. Okay. But if this were to happen, perhaps it would cause a lot of problems. A lot of you know, what would happen, imagine the Muslims they would, what would they do if this would occur? But the point is that some scholars to this day, they still say that it is best if the masjid will reconstruct it so that the
grave would be outside of domestic, okay? And this is why, for example, anytime an expansion occurs after the Omega 31st time, they never expanded more towards MSG. In other words, what am I trying to say? Every expansion that occurred after the medical marijuana was backwards or left and right, it wasn't enveloping the grave most of the medical number one, he was the one that included the grave inside the messages, every expensive that occurred after that they didn't increase that size, the only ones backwards. So even in archives, for example, the present expansion that was done right, did they expand outside the grave more? No, if you go to Medina, you will find that there is the
first portion of it, of the of the pockets machinery, which includes the grace, and then the expansion occurred behind the grace. In other words, they expanded the lesson from behind the grace, not including the grid. And this was used to the fact that suppose they said, No, you shouldn't include more states of the grace inside them. So the point is, what occurred was a historical accident wasn't something that's discovered of that time, like it wasn't something that the Prophet himself the lesson approved, or the Sahaba did, it occurred after the Prophet. Now, the last prophet has recorded with a good sentence, that isn't this overthrow the Allahu anhu narrated in a motive
The most evil men are those upon whom this the signs of the hour come while they're still alive, and those who take grazes places of worship.
Signs of the hour of each other. That's incorrect. The correct translation
The headache is the most evil amongst men are those that are alive when the day of judgment comes not designed to the nature of the Day of Judgment itself? Okay, we are living at a time when the science of the Day of Judgment of presence and inshallah we're not the most evil of men, okay not the signs of the Day of Judgment rather the Day of Judgment itself. Okay? In other words, when the Trumpet is blown, these are the people that will actually physically hear the trumpet, okay? And this generation will be the most evil generation of all of mankind, the most evil generation of all mankind will be those that are alive when the Trumpet of the Day of Judgment is lost. Okay, we know
that from the authentic narrations that after Isa comes down, and he kills the Antichrist, the Messiah, the Messiah does, he kills him after this period of time, this will be one of the most prosperous times of history and that's the heap will play with the with the wolf and that the children will play with the snakes. Okay, this will be a very a time of great Baraka. Now, what will occur after the Senate that Allah subhanaw taala will send a very beautiful, very, very centered winner. And that winner will take away all of the believers anyone that has the smallest greatest human in his hearts will guide when this wind is long, so who will be left? He will doesn't even
have this amount of emails in his heart. And this is a time when the very name of a lozi forgotten. This is the time when the horn itself will be raised back to Allah subhana wa Tada. This is time when the Kadima had a loss, many people would not even know what they were saying, we found our ancestors upon the same Elijah, hello, we don't even know what it means. Okay, until at this point in time to Trump it will be blocked.
So these people will be the worst of mankind, out of all of the creation of Allah, the Prophet Muhammad Salah sentiment saying that the worst of mankind are those that will be alive when the Trumpet is blown, and and those that built messages over place, those that built messages overgraze Why are these the worst of mankind, because this is an app that leads to major shifts. And we already talked about the dangers of major sync and the evils of major shifts. So the point is that the worst of the creation of Allah are two categories.
The first category is what those that are alive when the Trumpet is launched. And the second category is anyone, any person that builds a mustard over a grave, and look at the evils of this act. And I tell you the subtitle there are literally 1000s and millions of places on the face of the earth where Muslims have built graves have built messages over literally 1000s and millions of places all over the Muslim world, where they build their message overgraze. And yet the Prophet Marcus is saying that these people are the worst of the creation inside of us. Now the question arises, what do we do if we find this type of message? Well, firstly, without any doubt, it is how
long it is forbidden to pray in that semester, it is absolutely forbidden to pray in the masjid where there is a grace. Okay, this is something which is clear to anyone after you read the title, if the people that did these acts are cursed, and with the creation, do you think then that this place can be called a mess, just know. Secondly, if we are in authority, if we have any say in the matter, if we have power,
in the sense a physical power, not just in the sense that we have been given political power, not just the physical power, but a political power, then we look at the situation of this message, if the machine what existed before the grave. In other words, there was a message there, and then someone put a grave inside the machine, then we remove the grave and we leave the message. And it says we would we dig up the grave, we take the course out and we buried in the proper place for the message, then becomes a problem. However, if the gray was existed before domestics, then we destroy the method and we turn that place into a graveyard. So we look at which of the two aspects occurred
before. If we have political authority, if we have the, the the the power to change that situation, then we look at which of the two occurred before that, okay. And we then take the ruling of the earlier case, if it was a great first and then a much lower bill, we destroy the method and we turn that into a graveyard. However, if we're a merchant first and then a grave was added to the masjid, then we dig up that that grave we dig up that dead course and we move it to the actual graveyard and unless you did then becomes pure again, also, we should realize that it is forbidden, what it would take to take in a fifth class, what are the places that is forbidden to worship.
I cemetery agreement this and these are also foods that, that unless curses are upon those peoples that offer this Allah or their prayers, next to a great now this chapter, by the way doesn't just include further, it includes any type of worship. If you go to the grave of a pious person and make a blog, they're thinking that your blog is going to be accepted better. And this is your the curse of Allah is upon this type of person. Now what if you were to occur? What if you were to actually pray to this person? What type of act is this? major shift? Suppose you wish to pray to Allah, but at the grave of this person, this is my mission. Okay, you're praying to Allah subhana wa Tada. But
you think that because
Next to disgrace, you think that because you are playing at this, quote unquote, holy place, then your prayer is going to be accepted by all of us, I will be accepted, your charity will be accepted, your Salah will be accepted. This is minor shift. If your intention is for Allah, but you're doing it at this place, this is minus shift. But if your intention is for this grave itself, then this is a
major shift. Okay? Now, obviously, the only exception is for that to janazah. Okay, the only exception to this rule is the janaza prayer, in which case it is allowed to bring the body of the person inside the masjid, and you pray the janazah inside the machine This is because this is a special type of Philips, which you don't do quarter to do it for, okay, you're allowed to bring the body inside and you do productive janazah at this place, and then you take it to the grave. Likewise, they say that if you did not if you were not able to pass it in as a prayer, you're allowed to go to the graveyard and pray for us in general, Ole Miss aboriginality this is because
there are the prayer is a prayer that you make to Allah for the dead man. Okay, and it does not include record or seduce. So this is the one exception to the general rule. Otherwise, apart from this any type of prayer that you offer, or any type of drug that you offer this thinking that you're not going to be accepting more this is a type of minor issue. Okay, next chapter, chapter number 21 questions at the end of exaggeration in the graves of the righteous persons 10s
and 10s them to become idols worshipped besides the loss, okay, obviously a very related chapter, the chapter before this was concerning the fact that if you worship Allah at the grave of a righteous man, then
this has been condemned in the Quran as soon as the next chapter says, If you worship Allah, at the grip of a righteous man, this automatically leads this grave to become an idol. This automatically this will automatically lead to the fact that this place becomes a place of worship. besides Allah subhanaw taala it becomes a place of shifts Nam.
nomadic Rahim Allah recorded in his lockbox that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah never turned my grave into an idle to be worshipped. A law's wrath intensified on a people who turn their profits grades into semesters. Okay, again, related theme from the previous chapter, but more explicit regarding this chapter, the prophets have said before he's done, he says, oh, Allah, don't make my grave, an idle a weapon, an item that will be worshipped after I die. So the puppet masters and is praying to Allah. So look at his fear that he has, that the most of my company is great and start worshiping His grace. In other words, the property was aware of this fact that one of the
greatest causes of shift is what is exaggeration in the status of pious people. And the Prophet doesn't realize that because he is the most pious human being that because he is the greatest of the messengers that some ignorant people of his own mouth, some ignorant Muslims might actually start worshipping Him, and might actually start worshipping His grace. So he needs to drive to Allah while he is alive. He needs to do as well but Oh Allah, don't make my grave, an idol that is worshipped. Okay. And then he goes on, and he says, Verily Allah, anger becomes severe, a law becomes greatly angry at a people or a nation that takes the grief of their profits as messages. Once again, same
thing as the last chapter. But the point here is that the Prophet was aware, and he was fearful of the fact that some people might actually take his grace as an idol. Now we say that 100 Allah, Allah accepted his prayer, or less up to the player, the Prophet says, that no one ever
as a general masses, they ever took the profits grades as an idol. However, unfortunately, we do find certain individual listening, not as a whole, not collectively. But we find that when we go to the Prophet graves, when they go to the Prophet grace, they actually worship that grace, and everyone that it goes to the Prophet mission, and he lives there. And we see this all the time of the Medina, that people they actually come to the office great, and they make drive to the Buffett's grave. And they absolutely think that the profits grave is a place of worship, and is a holy and blessed place in and of itself, in the sense that you should offer your prayers towards this.
However, we say that in general, in general, the Muslims as a whole, they never took the profits great as an idol. Alhamdulillah This shows that the prophets prayer was accepted, we say that his prayer was accepted, and that in general, the Muslims, they never took his grave. Unlike, for example, the Christians look at what they have done to Bethlehem. Right? They actually make their hedges because they think that Jesus Christ was born dead. And they go to this, what is it stable or something, they actually go there and they often is that they actually have turned this place into an idol. Whereas it humbled enough muslims for the most part, for the most part, the majority of
them, they have not done so. Yes, some of them individuals amongst them, when they go to the Prophet grave, they actually worship this grace, but we did it in general the 100 of us, Allah has saved the Muslims for falling into the trap of shifts, and that his grave is not an idol that is worship besides Allah subhana wa Tada. Now
diverse, have you then considered a less and a larger inventory report every reported from CCN. from Thor Mujahid, he left us to serve the pilgrims by by preparing so we, for them after his death that people began to stay and confine themselves at his graves for the purpose of reward. The same was reported by Abu Joseph from ignite fest. Okay, have we taken this risk before?
Have we taken this risk before in a previous chapter?
Yes, we have taken this risk before which verse which chapter we taken in
which chapter do we take this person into them? So, Hey, remember,
we took this, we have taken this thing before, concerning the fact that we've taken this a number of places, I think, firstly, that
pious people exaggerate the status of high people pious people's least to hit also worshipping Allah, right? worshipping a lot of places where
the place where other idols or other things existed is also a type of shape. We mentioned now that last a lot was an idol that the machine has taken. Okay, a lot was an idol that the machine has taken. And a lot was actually the place where this person would feed the pilgrim a lot was name of the person, right? What did they do when the person died, the place that used to see the pilgrims, that he used to, you know, be nice to the people and beat and give food to the poor. They took that place as an idol. So obviously, how is this related to the chapter title? How does it relate to what we're talking about now?
Exactly, just like these people, they took the place of Alaska, and they took his grave if you like, and this led to idol worship. Likewise, it is possible that one of us if he were to take the grave of any pious man, or the grave of the Prophet narcissism as a place of worship, obviously, this leads to a major shift and it is a form of major shifts.
The next statement is that a lot of the profit analysis and said that allows messengers are ignored back before that alleged messenger curse the women who visit grave, Allah's Messenger curse the women who visit the grave. He also cursed those who set up marks and lights over grace. Okay. So then in this narration, once again, we get to the same point is that Firstly, alleged messenger cursed women that visit great we're gonna talk about, about this ship aspect in a little in a little while. But the point is, secondly, he also cursed those who built the messages overgrazed and those who put candles and lights overgrazed Why does a love message occurs to people who put lights and
candles also great,
because this is an act of
warehousing enough to ship
Not just that, but you are showing respect you are showing veneration you are showing an act of worship, you are showing love and fear and to this object in the grave. That is why you like this candle to it. Okay. And believe it or not, this is a custom that every single person knows of in many Muslim countries and hundreds not that common here. But I say even in America, what date did this occur? What date this is without for who knows?
This seems to have been right on the 16th of Chavez. Right? There is a custom in many Muslim countries and believe it or not even an Islamic cemetery Muslim cemetery here in Houston. It is a custom that people go on this date, and they light candles on the grave and they offer something to the grave. Okay, you can go the oldest you shouldn't go there everything. If you were there at that time in place, you will see this and in certain countries, in certain countries, this is a national holiday. And in other places, all of the community goes out to the grave and you will find that if you go on this particular day, you will find that there are the graves are full of flowers. The
Grapes have many kinds of other people actually leave their houses with candles and go to the grave and put them and put these candles on the grave. And yet I was messenger is saying Allah curse is a form these type of people. Why because all of these acts they lead to ships, even though they might not actually be major ships, they are minor ships and minor should is is everything that needs to make a shift. Every active minor shift needs to make a shift. Okay, so Allah messengers, and alarm bells, a curse those who build messages over grace, and they curse those that lift candles upon grace. So basically showing any type of veneration to a grave is an active minor shift. And this is
why islamically and this is a very important point islamically it is forbidden. To construct overgrazed, it is forbidden to build a barrier over a grave it is forbidden to put bricks over grades. In other words, graves must be left as simply as they are just a mount of respect. And some other medicine if you put a stop at a rock or a stone at the top of the grid is just just to know that it is a grave that's fine. But if you were to build a structure around the grace or
To put risk all around the graves, or to build a whole house or something, this or even worse than msgid, this is all forbidden. It is forbidden to build or to venerate any grace. And yet, if you go to so many different places in the world on even the most the cemetery of Houston, right, you will find that there are so many structures among the greatest people, they like to spend money and to make their particular grade or the group of their loved ones, somehow special. And all of this is forbidden. This all leads to monitoring and monitoring all these two major shifts. So we say that when a Muslim dies, it is forbidden. It is how long to make his grave into a structure. Rather, what
the proper way to do is that you bury him and you cover his grave with a mound of earth. And if you wish, you can place a rock or a stone,
a brick stone at the top of his grave so that if someone were to pass by he knows that that is a great, that's it. But there is a mandate to write your name on it, or to build a structure on it or to cement it all of this is forbidden. And this has been explicitly narrated in a number of Hadith report by widows and others of the processing of forbade, forbade building structures overgraze. And in one narration, he told Alia, Navy pilots, when he sent him out on an expedition, he said, If you come across any graves that is raised, then destroy it and lower to the face of the earth, make it the same level as if it's a desert. Okay. And everyone knows that so many places in the Muslim
world, they have built huge structures over the grave and the most magnificent, quote unquote, or those that the Shiites have done for the month, if you go to places in Iran, and in Iraq, particularly, you will find that for the Imams that she is a huge multi million dollar structure, very, quote, unquote, beautiful. These are messages, these are places of worship. These are structures that they have built over the grave of their email. And this is where major shift occurs all the time. Okay, and we say not just this year, as many of this quote unquote Sudanese have fallen into the same mistake of building structures over their grave. And we find that there's
something that the pockets of the Law Center has first. Now other five points here that in this Hadith, we find that it is forbidden for women to visit graves, and this is the correct opinion of the scholars of Islam. And this is the majority opinion that women are not allowed to visit graves. Okay, the prophet said, I'm cursed to those women that visit the grave. And this is the correct opinion of the elements and the majority opinion. Women should not visit graveyards, even if a close friend or relative of their advice, they should not actually go to the graveyard. Yes, they can offer the janaza prayer in the masjid. They can pray for that person after he dies. They can do so
many things. But they cannot physically go to the graveyard they are forbidden from physically going to the graveyard and this is the correct up and like we said
chapter number 22. The protectiveness of a buffer for the loved one it will send them of coheed and his block hating every path leading to shift. Okay, in this chapter, the author is going to talk about the eagerness that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had in protecting, so hate and the and the and the fact that he warned is a must I guess chip. Now obviously we have talked about the dangers of chips. And we have talked about how evil and how unforgiveable chip is. We've also talked about the importance of still hate. Okay, so can it be imagined that the Prophet Mohammed Salah Leviathan would not warn his people of the dangers of shift? Kennedy imagine that he would not
instruct them and not exhorts us to the benefit and the blessings of the heat? Of course not. For in this chapter we're just talking about the fact that the Prophet Muhammad system was so eager was so concerned to show his own mother, the proper status or the proper nature of the Hades and to warn them against the dangers of ships now.
A lot of the most exalted, said, barely there is coming to you a messenger from amongst yourself. it grieves him that you should receive any injury or difficulty. He is anxious over you. For the believers full of pity, kind and merciful. But if they turn away, say a lot is sufficient for me. None has the right to be worshipped but him in him I put my trust and He is the Lord of the mighty strong. Okay, in this verse, Allah subhana wa tada describes the Prophet Mohammed, the law why they were sending them and he says that verily a messenger has come to you from whilst yourself, meaning he is a human being is not made out of life. He is not superhuman, he has come to you from amongst
yourselves. He was born of a natural birth. They were he had a mother and a father, and he lives and he married and he had children and he died. He was a man just like you are became two hormones yourself. Yet there's something special about him Ivy's and other humanity. He finds it very difficult to verify your hardships, not his hardships. He cannot bear to see you in hardship, to look at the love and the concern that the Prophet Mohammed has for him, that he could not even bear to see the hardships of other Muslims, not his own hardship. If he were to look at them, Listen, he doesn't have the patience, that he cannot bear to see them in hardship. And then Allah goes on how
to use when are they equal Steve ever eager to for you. In other words, he is eager to guide you
he's eager to tell you all that is good. He is eager for your welfare. been wondering, you know for him with the believers, he is aloof and Rahim is ever Merciful and showing mercy to them. Now the point of this verse is that this is a general description of the prophets of the Lord's and in which Allah describes him as being eager for the believers. So if he is eager for the believers, this automatically implies that he is eager to guide them to all that is good, eager to warn them against all that is sinful, and evil. And this is why the Prophet was interested in the idea that
there is not a single thing, there's an important headache, therefore about about army, there is not a single thing that brings you closer to gender, except that I have told you about it. And there is not a single thing that brings you closer to the firehouse, except that I have warned you against for looking at the comprehensiveness of the prophets. message, looked at the evenness of the Prophet hats that there is not a single thing that brings you closer to gentleness, except that I've already told you about it. And there's not a single thing that brings you closer to the fire of hell except that I have warned you against it. This also shows you by the way, the completeness of the religion
of Islam, and that Islam is complete in and of itself. It is not in need of additions, it is not in need of subtraction, it is not in need of change. Islam is a perfect and complete way of life. Nothing has been left, nothing has been left to our imagination and desires. Everything has been told to us everything that we need to know and I was out of your mind. He says a very, very beautiful statement. He said that Verily, the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam left us not going out of food, but it's a little low and he was selling the property some of us would have left us meaning after he died. And there was not a single bird that flies with its two wings in the air,
except that the progress has told us what we need to know about this bird.
What is it without saying here? What is it? What is the point of this other statement?
To understand this statement, is the process that I mentioned every bird that flies in the sky, know what is the meaning of a statement.
Everything that we need to know the process of sort of total. So you gave a metaphor you give an example. He said that the process of listening leftists, and there was not a single bird that flies with his two weeks in disguise, except that he told us what you need to have, except that he told us the knowledge relevant to this verse. In other words, the progress a lot of sentence told us everything we need to know nothing has been left nothing has been concealed in this religion of Islam. And this is the reputation of so many groups, so many groups amongst them that she has because they claim that the profit center did not fully informed us the hub of the status of it,
amongst them the bravest, because they granted the promise of them did not tell them about so many things such as celebrating his birthday, because exalting him to this level among the Sufi groups because they claimed that performances and left a hidden knowledge that he gave to only a certain amount of people and this knowledge is transferred amongst the higher echelons of the Sufi effort to our time. This idea and this narration is a clear reputation of so many good service lamps. Nothing has been hidden from the Muslim almost everything that the Muslim woman needs to know has been told to them. Okay, so this verse, The point of this verse is going back to the chapter topic. The point
of this verse is that it is a general description of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam in that he is ever eager. He is ever eager to guide the believers to that which is which was an excellent borella Robbie loveline, who narrated that Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Do not make your home's grades, do not make my grave a place of celebration. Send your Salah on me, your Salah will be conveyed to me wherever you may be.
And the audience sustains that narrated, he saw a man at a space that was at the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he would go in it and suffocate. So he, on even a saint present prevented the man and instructed him saying,
should I not tell you a hadith which I heard from my father, who in turn have heard it from my grandfather, who reported it from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Do not take my grave as a place of celebration, nor your home as grace makes a law upon me for your salutations will be conveyed to me from wherever you are
playing in this in these two narrations, right? We learn of the status of the prophets grave that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that don't make firstly he said don't make your houses graze. What does this mean don't make your house with grace?
Well, it has two meanings. It has two meanings to it. Firstly, there is a physical or the most physical, the apparent to me is that you don't don't Bury Your Dead in your houses. The physical department, you'll Bury Your Dead in your house is very limited cemetery. Okay. The second meaning is that don't leave
the worship of Allah in your houses in other words, just like you are forbidden from praying in a grave, don't do this in your house, pray in your houses, to the process. And to get an example. He says, Don't make your houses great. In other words, don't need to find out in your houses. In other words, pray in your houses. So the best prayer that a person does after the first prayers is the prayer that he gives in his house. The best prayer that a person can do is not the prayer that he gives him the message and nothing in the center prayer, it is better to put in your house. It is better that you pray the Psalms in the masjid. And it is better that you pray that's enough and
enough in your houses. So this is the meaning of the first phrase, don't make your houses great. It has too many doors. Firstly, the apparent minions don't Bury Your Dead in your in your houses. And the second meaning is that offer your prayers in your houses. This is the second meaning of this free play of after this the promises themselves and don't make my grave and read. Now this is a incorrect translation, which is extremely incorrect. It does not mean don't make it a place of celebration. No, it does not mean this many translators, they fall into this mistake. It does not mean don't make it a place of celebration. It means don't make my grave a recurring habit to visit.
Okay, what is the meaning of the word seed? The Arabic word is age, right? And many translators because they're not knowledgeable in Arabic, they just understand the woodridge as a celebration, because we have to go to places of celebration or to transliteration. But this is not what the promises that I meant. He meant the linguistic meaning of the word is what is the linguistic meaning of the word at the linguistic meaning of the word leads is a time or a place that is continually visited or continually remembered. So why do we call our two A's why we call them A's because they occur on the same date every year, once a year. Okay? Okay, a time or a place. Likewise, if you take
a place and you continually visit that place, this place becomes an aid for you. You continually visit this place, it becomes an aid for you. So the pragmatic person is basically warning the oma against taking his grave as an object object that you continue to visit. Don't go to the grave all the time, don't take is great and visited experts intervals also don't take as great as a place to visit. And this shows you and also the process instead prey upon me for my for the praise that you give upon me reaches me no matter wherever you are. So the profitsystem isn't advising the believers that don't think that if you come to my grave, you will have some special status when it comes to
sending your salaams upon me I
don't think that gets because you're standing three meters from my grave in front of my grave, I will have or you will have any special status rather than that no matter wherever you are in the face of the earth. You are so that reaches me when you say Aloma sundiata say Mohammed Aloma sundowner Mohammed, Ali Mohammed, no matter what form or manner or fashion you say it in, the angels will take your statement and convey to the possible along whether you are sending three meters in front of his grave or you are sending 300,000 kilometres away from his grave, it doesn't matter. Allah angels will come and inform the prophets of Allah while he was sent him that you sent his
peace and blessings upon him. And this is proven in the next narration in which it isn't the same without even as the same.
So he is the great grandson of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu. It says, Okay, what is his title, by the way, who knows?
Zeno and IBV. And this is one of the figures that the she I think, as a club Imams, and this narration shows you that he himself was upon purity. So he he was not upon the ship that the she as of today or upon okay, because by the way that she as they worship the grave of their emails, and I see this as my own two eyes almost every day in Medina, when you pass by the graveyard, you know, that person of the prophets progeny amongst them aliveness, attainability, is also very involved here. And you find that the Shia as they actually face the grave, and they make drugs to disgrace and they physically worship these grades. Okay? And we find that I didn't represent himself this
marriage and show that he was upon suicide. It's like we mentioned over and over again, that these imams that the Shiites exalt and venerate, they are free of the Shiites and have nothing to do with the Shiites, struggling with a saint, he used to see a person come to the Prophet grave, and there would be a gap close to the officer that would that would make him come closer to that grave. So we would enter into that gap and he would make drops to almost entirely with data. Okay, so he's forbade him from doing that. He said, don't do that. He forbade him from doing this. And then he instructed him from something which is better. He said, should I inform you?
Should I tell you something that I've heard from my father, who is his father's present as the grandson who narrated from my grandfather who is his grandfather's? No, I need to say it isn't in the present even if I didn't even have your party. So I need father is the same the grandson and his grandfather is also ID. Right? Because look has been his father's name, his ID, you also need to send it okay. So it is interesting, his father's first name and his
But if I didn't I'd be part of it otherwise the profits cousin and the husband of saltiness, okay. He said shouldn't Should I inform you something that my father meaningful things narrative for my grandfather's meaning I didn't maybe Polish from the process of the long run, he would send them once again showing you that the star system was used very early in history. Okay. It's not like the orientalist claim. And many of these quote unquote, modernist Muslims, that body was the source of record. And it's no, look at this person, I don't even know pretend he's narrating. And it's not right in his time. And I didn't start saying that in the first century of the Hindus. So he's going
to say, What did the Prophet system say, The Prophet said, Don't take my other as an aid. So this shows you that he understood the meaning of the word AIDS. And he is it played for a time that you continually go back to you continually visit. So because this month would continually go to this, this gap inside the pocket house, and he would try to get inside the pocket house and make a drop. He understood the meaning of the word age. And he said that the progress opened up for babies, that you take his others as a continuous place of visits, that you go back to this great over and over again. And then the prophets have said, Do not take your houses as graves, we already interpreted
this phrase, right? We have we said it has to do with repetitions with which everyone understands, and then the promises that offense. That's because, or for in that aseema comes that whenever you give your Salam upon me, it will reach me no matter wherever you are. If you are in the furthest jungles of Africa, if you are in Australia, if you are in, even in Medina, next to the Prophet, great, it doesn't matter. The status is the same. The Prophet cannot hear you. He is not in the life of the buzzer. He is alive, a different type of life. He is not alive, the type of life that we are living. So he cannot hear you, no matter how loud your skin even if you were to send right at the
prophets grave, he could not hear you. Rather, the angels take your silence, and they send it and they inform the particles. And that's so and so has sent is sent out upon you. And this is shown in another narration in which
another other prophets party may not even know who sent I don't remember who he said that.
He He said that it doesn't matter if you were to stand under loose a Spain or you were to stand in front of the Prophet grapes, you are the team. It is the same as if you are standing in space. Why did you mentioned Spain by the way, Spain was the furthest area of earth that was noted by the time they hadn't obviously they didn't know of the American continent, right? So Spain was the furthest that they knew. So he's giving an example. He said, If you were to stand at St. Andrews, or you were to stand right in front of the Prophet greatest, the same, it doesn't matter, it's the same, the prophets not going to do directly, the angel is going to going to going to inform him. So if the
agent is going to inform him what particular benefit you have, if you stand at the grave, or you stand at space, no Vanessa, the angel is going to come and inform the public so that you gave his set out upon him that
I will look I have the book at home, I can look it up for you, I don't remember off time. It is definitely authentic because it makes it authentic is authentic nourishing.
I receive the same equivalent of your father, in law presented in their policies, and it gives us the same even if it didn't have the fathers.
They know everything they know diabetes, okay, it means the the crown or the the vein is the beauty, if you like the beauty of the worshipers, in other words, because he works with the law, so much they gave him this title is that he is the beauty or the crown or the the the shining glory of the worshipers that he is the one that he surpassed all other worshipers of a lot because it is worship and of course the prophets progeny, they have a special status in the sense that because of the fact that they related to processor, we will have to respect them more, but we don't go to the level that she is doing and give them attributes of divinity or claim that they are better than the other. So,
have a note we will mention over and over again. The greatest of the companions is a worker and then aroma and then there is not and then and then the tenable machine vagenda dependable given the kinds of agenda and then the people have budgets and the kind of Mohammed they have their various categories played.
a very important question that arises is that is it allowed to visit the prophets Grace? What is the answer to this?
It is allowed to visit the Prophet grace, right? Because obviously all grades are allowed to visit, okay? But the point is, when we go to that grave, we have to visit it according to the proper Islamic manners. Okay, so just like a lot of curses upon those people that worship a lot of grace, right, just like alleged curses upon those who that worship a lot of grace. Likewise, you should understand when we go to the Prophet graves, we are not allowed to worship the Prophet grace. We are not allowed to direct any of our acts of worship to the prophets grace. Okay, so the ruler might say that when you go to the prophets grave, if you are going to make a dua to the prophet or to Allah
and it was either you should turn away from the grave. You realize that when you visit the Prophet so you have to turn your back
To the similar, right? You understand when you turn when you sit down to the profit, you'll have to turn your back to the fitness for the day that it is allowed to say sit down with your back to the fibula. But if you're going to make a drop, turn around
your face don't face the grave and naked loss. And this is something that all of the other mums and dads they say that don't make a drop facing the grave. Turn around and make a blast to Allah. Even if you're making a glass of Allah don't face the grave because people might think that you're making a doctorate degree and this is minus ship. Okay. Likewise, another point is that it is not allowed to undertake a journey with the intention of visiting the Prophet grace. In other words, you want to leave America to visit Medina. Okay.
I think the recording has stopped for a while.
Continue, okay. In other words, it is not allowed to leave America or leave muska or leave any city or country with the intention of visiting the Prophet grave. This is a type of minor shift.
What should you then do? What intention should you have
to visit this office mosque? Exactly. The proper analysis of them said that do not undertake a religious journey do not undertake a journey except for one of three messages. The first one is the Goddess. The second one is my message. He said My God, he didn't say my father. He didn't say my grave. He said my messages. And the third one is mercury. Now this means that there are only three places that are inherently places a buck on the face of the earth, that is no other place that is inherently a place of honor, except for these three metrics. Now once we visit the Prophet Masjid, then we can visit the prophets grace. However, we should not undertake a journey to visit the
prophets grace note, our journey should be for what
the question of the processor, we're allowed to undertake a journey to visit the profit method, once we come to the profit machine, then we can visit the profits grave, then we can visit the market, then we can visit the machine the holder then we can visit the graveyard of all of this comes after we visit the profits messages. The first and foremost intention though, and the only intention that we should have is to visit the prophets messages. This is a place that has brought us in and of itself. Okay, once we come to the Prophet Masjid, then we can obviously visit all of these other things. And we have to be careful that when we visit the prophets grave, we do not direct any acts
of worship towards the conference. Grace, we did not direct any to ask any further anything to the actual Grave of the Prophet sallallahu. It was send them and this is why the President said don't make my grave he specifically said and imagined that he's saying this in his life. He is saying this sort of habit that are alive. And he's telling us how to deal with other people don't make my grave unburied. Don't continually don't make my place my grave a place of visitation. Why? Because this will lead you to what to shift. When you start exalting my grave just like the Christians is to their profit, just like the Jews is to their profit, just like the other nations do to their quote
unquote, pious states. If you started golfing my grave, this will lead you to [???]. And then he said send your salon upon me wherever you are, or your salons will reach me for the pocket of cinemas implying just like Jose explicitly mentioned where I live, this is an exclusive mention he is implying It doesn't matter if you're standing right in front of the grave or you're standing in China or Spain it doesn't matter your thought and your silence will reach me no matter wherever you are coming Second, you can read quickly
read the chapter title
chapter number 23. So some people have this woman will worship idols. Okay, now in this chapter, in this chapter.
In this chapter, the talk the author is going to discuss the evidences that some portion or some people of this oma will eventually returned to idol worship. Okay. Now what is the point of this chapter? Even? It was only yesterday or two days ago that one of the brothers and sisters I said, Why are we setting this up? Because we don't see shifts presence anymore? So I gave an answer to that. But this chapter also shows you another reason that the Prophet Mohammed so long was that it predicted that indeed, some of his nations, his art is going to start worshipping idols are going to return to the ship. And we see this present in our times. We might not see it as rampant in America,
but it is existed all over the Western world. Okay. And there are places like I said, even in America, where this occurs in this chapter, then the Prophet Mohammed says no is going to describe or he's going to tell us that there are going to be people of his own mosques that are going to return to idolatry.
Love the most exalted, said, Have you not seen those who are given a portion of the Scripture, they believe in Egypt and as follows and say to the disbelievers that they are better guidance as regards the way than to believe
Okay in this verse Allah subhanaw taala is asking the people Have you not seen that those that have been given a portion of the book who is referring to
the Jews and the Christians, that they have been given the book, they have been given a portion of the book, even though they have been given a portion of the book, despite the fact that they have the knowledge of the compiler without in the sense that they have been revealed in Scripture, they still believe in God and for what his gift gifts is. The other man said that it is sorcerers and magicians I mean everything that leads to the ship follows what is already talked about, but whose
fault is it 80s everything what is the linguistic when your boss
takes you beyond the boundaries, okay, so everything that takes you down the boundaries of the worship of Allah, whether that is an idol, whether that is an atom that leads to a street was it is a leader that misguide you to shift everything that takes you outside the boundaries of so he is a false to Allah subhana wa tada what is the point of this verse? Basically, this verse is telling us, or warning us that just because you have been given the scriptures, just because you have been given the scriptures, it doesn't mean that you are going to not fall into ships. Because Allah gives the example of the generations before us, that the Jews and the Christians they had been given the
scriptures. They hadn't been given the knowledge of this book, just like we have the front and center. But that does not necessarily mean that these people are not going to fall into the Jews and the Christians before us they did fall into the beliefs of Jim as follows.
Okay, move on.
Laurie Almighty said,
say shall inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah, those who incurred the curse of a lion His wrath, those of whom he transformed into monkeys and swine, those who worship favelas.
Allah the Exalted said
okay, so the point of this verse is a lesson Hakata is just telling the proper Marxism should not inform you of worse people should not inform you of an evil people should not inform you of those people who are less than 500 angry with and he has cursed malaita who love Well, all the valley. Allah has person what is the lust, Chris?
To remove someone from his mercy. Okay, welcome everybody. On top of that Allah has become angry with him. Okay, a lot of become angry with him. And because of this anger and curse, he has transformed them into eight into pigs. Allah has transformed his generation into eighth and entropy. What did they do? What are the four old they used to worship the four hoots that Alexa has Kirsten and become angry with them and transform them into aids and swine and pigs? And they worship the ball? Who? Why did the photo say we're the ones that used to worship football Who? Okay, these are the people with like a showroom mechanic, Robert Lanza service, these are the people that have the
worst status, and they are the most misguided from the correct path. Now, once again, the point of this verse is what is what?
This verse is in reference to a number of Jews, a Jewish tribe, okay? When they disobeyed Allah subhanho, wa Taala. When they went against Allah commandments, when they started worshipping false, Allah transform them into eight and twice. Okay, aside points of the essence ones that we see today. Are they descendants of these people?
Who says no one? Yes. First of all here,
he says Yes.
Who says No?
Okay, the correct opinion is no, my current opinion is no. Why is this because the Sahaba they asked about apes and pigs, were they the remnants of those generations that have been transformed, okay, so the process in the sense that whenever a lead transforms a human or a nation, whenever Allah transforms them into another creature, as a creator as a punishment for what they have done, then Allah will never make them will never cause them to have a project. In other words, alleges transforms them, and he doesn't call this as a project instance windings existed before this transformation, and they will continue to exist after the transformation, the actual transformation
that occurred, right, it is only for one generation. So the point is as a punishment, to that generation, a level causes their bodies to become like pigs, you will cause your body to become like swine, they will cause your body to become like a, but their brains will be what
humans and this is the most extreme punishment that a person would have been like he lived a life of a human being, and he realized the blessings of being a human, but because of what he had done electronics was it was for the rest of his life will be he will have the brain of a human still remember his life as a human, but at the same time, he will also have lived the life of a pig. Okay, we take a lot refuge from this, but aside points the pigs and the ace of
times they are not the descendants of these
trans mutated generations. No, they are a different generation. Now what is the point of this chapter we understand that because of their, despite the fact that they were Jews, despite the fact that they had the knowledge of the books, they sell into ships, and they worship the bubbles, now,
a lot of the exalted said, Those who wonder point, and said, We rarely shall build a place of worship over them. Okay, this verse, it will not make any sense until you understand what it is referring to. It is referring to the Seven Sleepers of the case for the seven secrets of the case.
They were some pious people that fled from their, their country, that was an idolatry, and they fled to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they took shelter in a cave. And as a miracle as a sign, Allah caused them to sleep for 300 years, okay. And when they woke up, they didn't know that they're suffering 300 years this, this toaster is reporting source and cast. They didn't know that they had that for 300 years. So when they woke up, they were feeling very hungry. So they said to one of them, Take this money and go to the city and purchase some food for us. And make sure that no one recognizes you will also punish you and force you to ship so they were as high as soup of use. They
were they were young people, okay, there was a bunch of lads escaped. So they fled their city and they fled to worship Allah subhana wa Tada. Now, when they took shelter in this cave, and they woke up, they sent one of them to get some food back. So he took some money with him. And that money obviously was 300 years old. Okay. So because of this money, they realized what had occurred to them, the people of the city, they marveled at what had occurred, the miracle that it occurred, they went back to this person, they went back with him to the cave, and at this point in time, electrons that have caused these people to die because seven people died December 6, okay, so now the people
that realize this miracle, and they appreciated this miracle, Allah describes them, and they differed amongst themselves from others and said, We should leave the grave as they are. And others amongst them said, No, we should build a mustard upon their grave. Okay, Perales says what, in the Quran, that the people that finally won the day were
those that built the masjid. These are the people their fates became. In other words, they were able to enforce their opinions. Now, what is the point of this verse? Is that just like, just like the people before us built messages on their grave of the pious people, likewise, we too will fall into the same, okay, and this is COVID the whole point actually, these two three verses are recorded and it's headed as explained in the next tidy down.
Narrated adversaries are the Allahu anhu that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Surely you will follow the ways of those nations who were before you, in everything as one arrow resembles another, so much so that even if they entered the hole of a sand lizard, you would enter it. They said, Oh, Allah, His Messenger. So what do you mean to say that we will follow the Jews and Christians? He replied, who else? Okay, now this is the whole point of the two three verses that were quoted and the Hadith that was quoted that the Prophet system said that you will verily follow the path of those before you, you will follow the sooner of those before you just like an arrow
matches another hour in the sense that in the sense that like an arrow, if you were to place it in the ground, right, another hour would fit in the exact same imprint. In other words, you would follow it exactly. And another another generation, you said, you would follow them footsteps by footsteps. So he's giving examples basically, of how closely you're going to follow them. And he says, so much so that if they were to enter a lizard holes, and you know that it is his hole is very small, a human being cannot enter that visit hole is a very small hole. But the point is that in our, in our eagerness to follow the Jews and the Christians, if even they were to enter a lizard
host, we would follow them. So those habits are good, you meteorology mean, the Jews and the Christians? He said, Who else? Who else would I mean, of course, I mean, the Jews and the Christians. And this is exactly what the Muslims of today have done is that they imitated the Jews and the Christians in every single fashion and manner and form. And of course, there are various levels of imitation. I mentioned this earlier, but we don't have time to get into it. But obviously, the worst type of imitation is imitation of shifts. Okay? The worst ever, imitation is imitation in their beliefs. Just like the Christian celebrates Christmas, the Muslims celebrate me that, okay,
just like the Christians that exalts certain of their pious saints. Likewise, the Sufi sensibilities exalt certain of their Pisces, okay, just like the Christians do this type of [???]. Like was the Muslims do this type of [???]. For when we understand this heavy? All of the previous verses and heavies come into perspective, why does the author mentioned the story of the people of the gas? Why did the author mention the story of the Jews that were transformed into a frenzy? Why did the author mention the Hades before this? Because just like the Jews and the Christians fell into this thing, likewise, we too will fall into as part of this oma is going to fall into it. You understand this?
Now? The point of these verses that were just mentioned is this heavy is that just like the Jews and the Christians, even though they have the knowledge of the book, they fell into [???]. The Prophet Marcus Adam said, you will follow
So we are going to fall into [???]. Okay, this is the point of this heading. And the last
lesson reports from So Ben will be a long line who that allows Mr. So long while he was lm said, a lot of the most exalted folded for me the earth. So much though that I saw its east and west, the kingdom of ice love my community will reach as far as the earth has was folded for me. The two treasures the red and the whites were bestowed on me. I praised My Lord, they embraced them, I pray to my Lord, that he may not destroy my community by a prevailing famine, and not give their control to an enemy who annihilates them in mass, except from among themselves. My Lord said to me, Muhammad, if I issue a decree, it is not withdrawn, I have promised your own method, I will not
destroy it by prevailing famine, and I shall not give their control to an enemy except from among themselves, will exterminate them and mess. Even if there are storms from all sides of the earth, only a section of them will destroy another section, and a section will take us prisoner another section
of our fani Allahu Allah recorded this has eaten his body, yes, and added it with the following words, I am afraid about my community of those a stray leaders who will lead astray when the sword is used among my people, it will not be withdrawn from them until the Day of Resurrection. And the last hour will not come until the tribes of my people attach themselves to the polytheists. And the tribes of my people worship idols, they will be among my people, 30 great liars, each of them asserting that he is a prophet, whereas I am the seal of the prophets after whom will be no prophet. And a section of my people will continue to hold to the truth, and they will be victorious. And they
will not be harmed by those who oppose them to a lot of commands come. Okay, this is a rather long hedis a lot of benefits to it. First is the process that I'm said that a lot of title was Tada, made the earth small for me, he contrasted the earth so that I could see all of the earth, okay, and I saw its east and its West, and my own man, my nation will reach everything that I saw. Okay. And this is one of the signs of the miracles of the profit center, in that he said, east and west, he didn't say North and South. And if you look at the expansion of the Muslims, it was literally east and west. Literally the Muslims were in France. They were the time that the Muslims were in France
attacking freshmen, attacking the the people of France. They were literally knocking at the gates of Vienna and paracin. And the other thing is, is there on the one side, on the other side, the Muslims, they conquered parts of China. To this day, there are millions of Muslims living in China, Chinese Muslim, okay. I don't know how many millions of Muslims in China. Literally the
