The Concept of Shafa`ah (Intercession) Part 2
alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Manama, but we were talking about the concept of shefa. And I had mentioned that the categories of shefa for our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the subject of slight difference of opinion how many categories and I began talking about the concept of Pamela mood, which is the praise worthy station, and we hadn't really finished mahkamah mood so we're gonna today start from there where we left off the most famous Hadith about this shafa of Muhammad Muhammad is a hadith that is in Bukhari and Muslim It is one of the longest Hadeeth a very long Hadeeth and it is very, very beneficial. So we will go over
the entire Hadith quickly because it's a very long one. And this hadith is narrated by unassuming nomadic or the Allahu and it is Mustafa Ali Bukhari and Muslim highest level of authenticity and it is very long. And as symptomatic said, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah subhana wa tada will gather the believers on the Day of Judgment, in the same way that they are gathered in this life, meaning they're going to be together like human beings are going to recognize one another. And the people will say, let us find someone to make chifa for us, in front of Allah, let us find somebody to make sure far so that we can move on from the terrors of today. So the
Hadith is indicating that a long time will come. And that long time will make the people start feeling agitated, nervous, they will want to move on to the next stage, no matter what the next stage is. So they're going to hunt for one person, who will then go in front of Allah subhana wa Taala and make shefa. So one of them will say, let us go to Adam. So they say yes, let us all go to Adam. So mankind will come to Adam. And they will say to Adam, that Oh, Adam, don't you see how we are all in right now? Don't you see the situation, and you are our father, and you are Abu Bashar and you are the one whom Allah created with his two hands. And Allah ordered the angels to prostrate
and Allah taught you the names of everything, they're praising their father, Adam. So then they will say ish phi Luna in Arabic, you become our shaffir in front of our Lord, so that we may relieve ourselves from the terror of today. And so our family has said, I will respond.
This is not for me, I am not worthy of this. And he will mention that he ate of the tree that he shouldn't have eaten from he committed a mistake that he should not have done. And he will say, go to noye as he was the first Rasool whom Allah sent them was a nebby. Nor was our soul. So he will say go to No, because no one was the first or a soul that are less than to the people. So the people will then go to Norway, and they will praise Him and give the praise that is deserving of him. And no, he will say, I am not worthy of this. And he will say I asked a law for something when he forbade me to ask meaning. When Allah said to No, do not ask me about those that are not on your
ship. If they choose your ship hamdulillah if they do not, do not ask me on the majority mean, don't ask. And we know what No, I did. He said, No, my son, you didn't save him. And Allah said, He's not from your family. They Semin Alec, this is not from your real family. And no, it feels guilty for disobeying a lot in this regard. And so he is saying, I have to think about that sin. Go to the one whom Allah chose as his special friend, go to the holly of a law, go to Ibrahim alayhis salam, and so they will go to Ibrahim and they will praise Ibrahim that you are the
Colleen, and you are this and you are that. And Abraham will say, I am not worthy for I lied three times in my life. And I have to answer for those sins. And by the way, all of these things that they mentioned, are utterly trivial. No, became emotional and he only asked a lot. He didn't challenge you didn't get angry. He simply asked a lot. Now he's feeling guilty that I asked Allah Ibrahim did not technically lie. All of these three things they are called toda, double meaning double entendre is the term that it's not quite a lie, that he is doing something that is for a greater good in English, sometimes called a white lie, but it's not even a white lie. It's a double entendre. It's
mean something that you know, anyway, so he didn't actually lie, and have them is that when the people came to abduct sada and then we're going to kill him, if he was the husband of sada. He said, She is my sister, meaning he meant my sister in Islam to save his life. He meant she is my sister in Islam. So they left him alive, where else they would have killed him. And he is now worried in front of a law that he said She is my sister. And he is worried. How would I answer a law that I said this? Imagine that terror in there? Imagine that has come that have to answer a law. And the second one is that he said, This caboodle home this elder idol, this big idol was the one who killed
because of this, he is worried it was that that will opportunity. It's not meant to deceive. It's meant to make them think. And he's now worried What will I say to Allah subhana wa Tada. And the third one was that when he said I am not feeling well, in nissaki him, you guys go and you let me hear and he is not worried. I have to answer to a law that I said to my people that I'm feeling sick. And by the, by the way, he was 1314 years old, and he passes away at the age of 120. And he remembers as a teenager, so panela our teenage years, we don't even think about them. And that's better for us in many ways. But imagine if we thought about our teenage years and what we have done,
and Ibrahim is worried that I told my own I'm not feeling well so that they leave me in the city and I can destroy the idols. So he is saying I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy. Go to the one whom Allah spoke with directly go to Musa alayhis salam and so they will go to Moosa, they will praise Musa, Allah did this Allah did that Allah spoke to him today, Cena and Moosa will respond that I am not worthy. I killed an innocent man, when I had no right to kill him. And the killing was not even it was manslaughter, he punched he did not intend it was a hot, it was not. And it was a genuine mistake that when this man was beating up the bunny astride the Israelite, when this man was being a
tyrant, and by the way, I mean, given the dynamics we live in Imagine if any, I don't want to mention too explicitly, but imagine if one of the power dynamics is beating up somebody whose people are you know, you see what's happening with violence and police brutality imagine and now moose comes along, all of that anger is coming out and he punches representing the dominant volume that is taking place and in that punch, he kills the man. So now he is saying, I have to answer for that. I'm not worthy. Go to somebody else, go to Isa alayhis salaam and so mankind will go to the Salah, his Salaam, they will praise Him, they will say that Allah created without a father, he said, going
for your corn etc, etc. and Risa will say I am not worthy, the profitsystem will say, and Isa will not mention any sin that he has done. There is no sin even in his mind. An Isa was raised up at the age of 33, very young man, and there is no sin on his mind that he has mentioned. But he's saying I'm not worthy, I am not worthy. Go to somebody else. Go to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and by the way, these are the five Allah Allah Azzam from the messengers, along with our father Adam, six people, they go to one after the other. And this also demonstrates these five have a special status. Adam has the status because he is the father makes complete sense the first of
mankind. If there's any one person biologically is Adam, it his enemies, the father of all of mankind, then if there's any in terms of macom, it is the five that Adam sends them to, he begins with the one closest to him, that is no and the North sends them to the other five, one after the other. So these five are called the old memento rooster, the messengers of great valor, all of them their strength, their fortitude, their sobor was very strong, their their hima was very high. So alumina Rasul, the last of them, our Prophet sallallahu it was sent him the last chronologically, but the highest in terms of status, they will go to the Profit System, and they will say you are the
heart of the MBR the Cejudo mursaleen they will praise him the way He is worthy of
being praised. And then they will say, will you make shefa in front of Allah, and the Prophet system will not send them anywhere. He will say, an Aloha and aloha, this is my job, this is my job. And so all of mankind will unanimously elect our profits are some to represent them, the Muslim of them, the cafr of them, the men of them, and the women of them, the inside of them, and the gin of them, everybody will unanimously agree, he represents us. And this is why it is called a common mood, the praise worthy station because all of mankind will praise Him, and why should they not praise him when he is Ahmed and Mohammed, and he stands upon them a common Mahmoud, even the more common
Mahmoud is named after him, he is Ahmed. Ahmed means the one who has the highest quality of praise, and he is Mohammed. And Mohammed means the one who is praised in a quantity, the likes of which we cannot understand. Everyone praises the prophets are some of the highest praise humanly possible. And the quantity There is not a single second on this planet, except that at least a billion solar watt and Salaam are being said, from around the globe. somewhere. Somebody is in the Tisha hood, somebody is making somebody is doing something hundreds of millions every second, no exaggeration, hundreds of millions of people at any second of the day, they are saying Allahumma salli, ala
Mohammed, they are saying they're solid upon the Prophet system, How can any human being compete with that macom so he is Mohammed he is mad, and he will get them a common Mahmoud, because he is the one that is praiseworthy, and praised by the ones in the heavens, and the ones on earth. And so he will go in front of a lot, the prophet system will say, I will walk to the throne, and I will fall down for a hooroo saggi then I will fall down in prostration, in front of the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he said, I will stay as long as Allah azzawajal has willed that I stay meaning a timeframe that he doesn't even have words for he will remain in such depth. And then he
said a beautiful phrase for you, I limani Mohammed la Mahal and Allah will teach me a way to praise him that I don't know right now. Look at this, he knows what's going to happen. But he doesn't know the details of what's going to happen. He knows that it is his job that he has to do such the in front of Allah subhana wa Tada. And he knows that he's going to stay there a long time. And he knows Allah will teach him something, but he doesn't know what Allah will teach him for your alimony, Mohammed, Allah Mohammed, Allah will teach me a way to praise him. I don't know what that way is right now. And then when I say that special phrase, Allah will say, yeah, Mohammed sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam, arafat Roxtec. Sell Torah ish to chef Omar hammers awesome, raise up your head now. Now you can raise up after Allah has given permission, raise them, ask you shall be given in one phrase, here you shall be spoken, intercede, your intercession will be accepted. Now
this is what is called El Mocambo mode. Now the Hadith goes on and then I'm going to bring up some slight problems that other scholars have brought with these wordings. The headset goes on and the Hadith says that
then I will intercede and Allah subhana wa tada will allow me to intercede and he will tell me if I have food duly had done. He will tell me demarcate for me who to intercede for and I will intercede for them and allow will accept their intercession. And I will then continue to come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala continue to intercede until it will be said or I will say that oh my lord, no one remains in jahannam except those whom the Koran has given permanent jahannam to meaning those that wish to decode those that did not believe in Allah subhana wa Tada. And the prophets are seldom added in the same Hadith that you heard you mean and now it will be taken out from the fire of hell,
men can feel the behemoth called do the rotten whoever has an atom's weight of a man they will be removed from from the fire of health. And in one version, whoever says law, a law in the law and has a mustards grain of a man shall be removed from the fire of hell until none shall remain except those that have absolutely no Eman. So this is the famous hadith of unecessarily Malik. It is a very long Hadith
It is beautiful, full of wisdoms. Now. This Hadith tells us the most common Mahmoud what is the most common mode, all of mankind coming. And the Prophet says in prostrating, and by him raising his head, what happens? judgment begins, that beginning of judgment is what mankind wanted. That is the most common Mahmoud. Now, the problem or the issue that is raised is that the very next phrases mentioned the shafa of the Prophet system for his oma,
the shefa for his oma, that Allah will say, this group of people from his own Malala, and I will take them into gender. And that is not my common Mahmoud, because my common Mahmoud is universal. And the next part of the Hadith is specific for his oma. So a number of scholars of the past have raised this issue, including imagine and others. And there's a number of interpretations what can be said, but what appears to be the obvious most obvious one is that
one of two, either the narrators are condensing a much longer Hadith, or the profitsystem himself is narrating one incident, and another incident, and it's not necessarily causally linked together. So for example, if you spent half a day at a park and event a zoo, whatever, you come back, you tell your children, you're not going to summarize the whole thing in four hours, you're going to mention two or three highlights. And those two, three highlights are not necessarily linked together. The point is that the first shofar is Shiva, a Muhammad Muhammad and the second shofar is not more common Mahmoud there is another type of Shabbat. That is the shifa for his oma, that is the shofar
for those who say la ilaha illAllah. These are two separate shofars we need to understand this point. And our profit system is narrating it to us as if it is continuous, but it doesn't mean it is actually continuous. So the first category mccammon Mahmoud, and we explain what that is, this is for whom Who is it for
all of mankind, no restrictions. And that's why it's the highest level, what happens because of this shafa. So then under paying attention, what happens? judgment starts, this is what happens, judgment starts, okay? There is no concept of forgiveness or whatnot in this, that's just to begin Judgment Day and his dominant point. Okay, the next category of shefa. In no particular order, the next category of shefa. And I mentioned last class last Wednesday, I mentioned this that the concept of chifa. We are chronologically going on the day of judgment that we talked about the bath we talked about the hashCode. We talked about the shefa because of Muhammad Muhammad, because that's the first
thing. In reality, all the rest of these Shivas are not in chronological order, they will occur at different times throughout the day of judgment. They're not all occurring at the beginning, the only one that's occurring at the beginning is Mohamed Mahmoud. But because we begin the discussion of shefa, we might as well end it all. And shefa is an ongoing process from a common mode until even the believers enter agenda and they're in genda, and they're enjoying the fruits of genda shefa will be ongoing. So please understand this point. chronologically. We are not pausing, we're simply diving in because the most common mode now we're going to come back and then resume after we're done
with all of the chiffon The second category of shefa shefa.
For those whom the decree has been given that they're going to jahannam they've been handed the registrar's, they've been handed their verdicts in the left hand, they know they're going to jahannam they've been chained up on the plains of Judgment Day, but instead of being dragged to jahannam shafa will kick in, and they will not go to jahannam and they shall be forgiven, and they shall enter Jannah without going to jahannam even though they the verdict was given. Now, this does not happen in this dunya when the court sentences you. That's it. If there is leniency it will be after you're in jail for a long period of time. Once the court sentences you that said there is no
you are going there is a shift that will take place in this interim. Now, what is the evidence? Firstly, Who said this? If I'm a no we said, The third type of shift out in his list third in our list number two again, these are all different categories. The third type of shefa is those for whom jahannam is decreed but the Prophet system will make shefa and Allah will cause them to go the agenda or to be said the same thing are called the real set. The same thing addresses the same thing.
All of them are saying this that there is this kind of worship if no calcium comes along, and he says, I searched for any evidence for this type of shefa. And up until writing these lines, I could not find any Hadith that mentions this category explicitly, I couldn't find something that is very explicit that before going to jahannam
people are taken away and taken to Jenna. Some later scholars have found certain ethics of the Sahaba, they found one or two very weak traditions in what are called the tertiary books of Hadith. And I explained this to many times that we have the primary books, these are the six or the eight or the nine famous primary books. Then we have the secondary books, which is a dad in me and data poultney. These are like the secondary, then we have the tertiary, which is everything else, which is basically over three 400 books written. And these are, as we said, very advanced and in most people don't have even heard of them. And they are they have 1000s of narrations. Most of them are
not solid narrations. And in those books, one finds one or two explicit narrations that talk about people who on the Day of Judgment are pulled aside. And instead of going to jahannam, they go to gender, but their chains of narrations are not authentic. So ignore claims verdict, that he didn't find a Hadith, we can make a clause as far as we know, there's no explicit authentic hadith there are explicit weak Hadith. And then there are implied that cefas taking place. So we do not know for certain, but it makes sense that this shefa exists. To be honest, we do not know for certain, there's nothing authentic. But to the best of our knowledge, there's no God, I think but many of
them have affirmed this concept. And it makes sense that some people will not go to jahannam. And we hope that they'll last mercy. That's the second category. The third category is the most obvious and the most well documented category of shefa. And this is the shefa for the major sinners who are in jahannam, that they be removed from jahannam, before their time is up. leniency in jail. Okay, let out on good conduct as we do in this dunya. This is the largest category of shefa. And it is
general for anyone whom Allah wishes not only for our Prophet sallallahu, either he will send them anyone whom Allah wishes can get the shofar, and maybe maybe every righteous person, person who's going to genda. Maybe, because some Hadith mentioned this, as well mentioned, might be given the right to ask, and then it is up to Allah to accept. Remember, we talked about two conditions last Wednesday, the first condition, Allah gives you permission to ask only those whom Allah gives permission to ask and ask. The second permission, even if you've asked a lot is going to be the one who decides, okay, so shefa for the major centers of this oma who are in jahannam. They've got to
jahannam. But then they're removed before their time frame is up. Obviously, this is not happening on the Day of Judgment. chronologically, this is happening afterwards. Obviously, you get the point they've already entered Johanna, they're in Johanna. Now they're going to be removed from it. Now, this category, Sunni Islam has affirmed it without any controversy all as soon as affirmed it, there was a group that denied the sooner they were called the more intense ILA. And the more desolate, they did not believe this. They said once Allah has passed the judgment, then the judgment has to be in effect, they had their versions and they didn't accept Hadith. And there's no need to go into
their evidences, nobody believes that, well, some small groups do but by and large, it doesn't really matter to us to refute that, that ideology, but we would say even the Quran
indirectly mentions shafa as linked to people going to join them. And the only reason why Allah would mention shefa after mentioning people going to join them is what is that some people will not remain in jahannam and shefa will will kick in and Eliza says in the Quran that Yamanaka mattina ihlara Romani wife de wasu almajiri, Mina, Ella Johanna with de la em lacuna shefa, eliminate da da, da da da da. Okay. On that day, we shall gather up the righteous and we will send them in delegations in front of a man and we shall drag the sinners to jahannam in hordes. We shall drag the sinners to jahannam in hordes upon hordes. None of them
will hold any shefa except the one whom Allah has given permission and has a promise to do. Now, why is Allah mentioning after the sinners, that there are some that the shefa will have an impact whomever Allah has allowed there will have shefa This indicates that some of the sinners, there shafa or the shift out of people for them will be accepted by Allah. This is in the Quran. From the Hadith we have many evidences, and of them is the hadith of Jabba Abdullah, which is simple, sweet to the point and it isn't Sahih Muslim, memorize it. In shefa Rt. Leah live Kaaba idiom in Amati you cannot get more explicit and more to the point in Nasha it Leah lilica at min Amati. The purpose of
my shefa is for the major centers of my oma and our scholars mentioned Of what use is shefa. For the one who prays to hedger, that is nothing. He doesn't need the shofar. The concept of shefa is for the sinful Muslims who they didn't do enough good. And so they believed in the Profit System and the profit system will then make shift out for them. And that's what he is saying in the shefa. It will cover it. The myesha is meant for the ones who are the sinners, who are the sinners, the drug addicts, the ones who you know, were drunkards, the ones who committed Zina are the ones who these are the major sinners who didn't pray regularly. These are the major sinners means they are being
punished and they need shefa so the president saying that's my job, I will make sure for our for them. And in another Hadith amlodipine says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said they will they will be acquirement fee jahannam there's groups of people in jahannam you hora, Juna bisha it this is very explicit, they will be caused to leave because of my chifa. So again, this is after day of judgment we're talking about a lot and other has been done. hisab has been done, people are in genda and jahannam. And then the profitsystem saying there will be groups of people, they will be taken out because of my chifa. What does it mean they're going to be taken out? It means before
their time was up, if they got 500 years, maybe after 100 years, there will be electrical, if they got that timeframe, because of the shift of the Profit System, they will be let go. And
the Profit System said you are Lula home Johanna miyun. It will be said to them. These are Johanna miyun people will call them Johanna moon in gender for a period of time people call them all these rd, Johanna miyun. And this shafa is not only for our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it is for all the righteous, it is for the fall, the solid hain the odema, the Shahada, it is even for the angels, even the angels who love one person, they might love somebody because used to be the Koran, they might love somebody because he did Vicar after Salah one day and an angel passed by him and has something from that I love this person. So even the angels will make shefa for Al Qaeda or whoever
they want to do so and that's why we should never trivialize the opportunity to do any good. We don't know what angel is there. We don't know one sadaqa one good deed one smile, we don't know what's going to happen. We learn as well in the traditions that and the Quran alludes to this as well that the people of gender they will have perfect memories. May Allah help married husbands and do that day but anyway, the people of gender they have perfect memories. That was a joke sisters, it was just a casual joke, we don't have to. So they will have perfect memories and they will remember every single person whom they ever interacted with, imagine that and they will mention Oh, where is
so and so. He was good to me that day. He helped me when I needed help. Whenever Allah wants them to remember they will remember and they will realize he is not in general they will ask the angels whereas they will do he'll be told there's in jahannam and it is possible if Allah wills that they will make sure that Oh Allah He helped me Oh Allah He gave me a right Oh Allah He gave me a loan. Oh Allah was in distress he gave me an encouraging word, it is possible they will make shefa and it is possible their shefa will be accepted and this is all up to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And
in the mustard Rhema Mohammed Abubakar said if narrated that, the righteous will be said on the Day of Judgment, the solid stone will be said that
a lot of xojo will will say to the angels called us the own for me. So the call will be brought then Allah will say to them ish Pharaoh, so this code will make shefa then
Allah will say, bring for me the Shahada, then the Shahada will come, the deacons higher Shahada makes you far they will make shefa in one narration called the prophets they will be called myka called us to do own they will make Shiva called us Allegra, they will make Shiva. So there are levels and the higher the level, the more shefa as will be given to that person. And that is why our scholars said, find righteous people and stick around them. Even if you don't, if you're not righteous yourself, find righteous people to benefit from because even if you're not righteous, if you're in the company of righteous, maybe something will of benefit will come. And in the famous
editor, oversized hoodie, which we're going to come back to when we come to the Surat we're going to come back to this hadith it's a very long ad.
It's in Bukhari and Muslim. So we're doing one phrase today and we're gonna come back to this later on, that the Prophet has mentioned that patch batches will pass over the set off, they're going to go at the speed of light, then they're going to go at the speed of a galloping horse and then go going to go at the speed of a fast man, then they're going to get speed of a slow man, they're going to go walking, they're going to go crawling, until finally, the last one of them is dragging over the setups until when they have crossed over the set off. And they see that they have passed for either a new home or the new job when they are certain that they've passed over. And we haven't
talked about this at all and the entourage. We're going to talk about that in a few weeks inshallah. But you all know vaguely that there's a setup, you all know that you cross over it. Once you've crossed over it, then insha Allah essentially you're just a gate away from gender. The Prophet system said once they are certain that they've crossed over and they still haven't entered gender, they will turn to Allah subhana wa Tada. And they will say to Allah, that robina cuando una, our Lord, our brothers, the ones who fell down
May Allah protect us. The ones who fell down from the set off and they weren't able to cross over. The ones who crossed over we'll begin to ask Allah subhana wa tada that Oh Allah these people would pray with us. Can we also Luna mana, they would fast with us your Samana mana, they would do good deeds with us Yama, Luna mana, so they're gonna be begging Allah subhana wa tada that all these people were with us. They prayed with us they fasted with us, we know them Subhana Allah, they are one step away from Jenna. And if they want to drink a turn their backs on their brother and walk away. But these are people they love. These are people, their families, their relatives, the people
that they would pray with and do good deeds with. And so they have in their hearts, the man that brings about that brotherhood, this is the oma This is the oma and the Prophet system said and this is human nature. Once they know they are safe then they turn to a lot before that it is
NFC NFC human nature. Okay, I'm starving. I need a little bit for my food, my stomach, then I look around say okay, you want to share human nature. But Subhana Allah, that Eman is still there. Once they cross over the Surat, the prophet SAW said himself and this is I love this phrase. He said they will be the most argumentative as possible in front of Allah to save their brother in this panel. Now that they're certain that they got in, there is no chance of them going back in right for either whom I should do Monash edit and Phil Huck, they're gonna be arguing, arguing, arguing all along. This person did this Oh, I love this person did that. Where is this happening before Jenna. They're
seeing the people that have fallen into the city. They're seeing the people that are in Ghana and they know them and now the arguing and making a positive argument. Oh Allah, they're making what is this chef? Ah, this is Chef Ah, this guy used to pray with us. This guy used to do good deeds with this guy. We did good deeds together. We participated and held together and so they're begin to begin arguing with Allah subhana wa Tada. And so Allah will say to whomever he pleases in Hubble go from an widget to fill lbe with audio Deena in mean a man in a hurry you whoever you find who has the dinars weight, dinar the coin, Bitcoin, it's larger than a quarter, large coin whoever you have
a dinars weight then go and expelled get them out. And the profitsystem said Allah has made jahannam how long upon the morale there of sujood where we do such The jahannam will not touch it.
So the face and the hands and
Defeat and how do you recognize somebody by the face. So this is a very interesting phrase that the Prophet system is indicating that the rest of the people are unrecognizable. We seek Allah's refuge, who shall be recognizable, those that are doing such? Because jahannam has been made her arm for the places of sajida. And obviously, the one who does more surgery does more protection from jahannam. So somehow, we don't know how the people who are destined to go to Geneva have the capability to tour jahannam as if they are not in Jannah. They're walking around, and they're not in it. This is in Malaysia, and they're searching Who are they searching for their family, their friends, their
relatives, those who did good deeds with them, but Allah has a condition, what is the condition?
You have to have a dinar, if he has that dinner, you may take him out. Now, how will they recognize that again, all of shefa is up to Allah. So Allah will allow them to see various people and they will be able to recognize this guy has more than a dinner. So then they will be allowed to be taken out, okay, that will be the first batch, then they will say one more time. So Allah will say, go and find somebody who has this for dinner and take him out. More time has gone, which is more punishment. Correct. And so the punishment will go longer. So in this full dinner, they will take him out. And then it keeps on going down. There are various versions of this handy sometimes four or
five times you get the point here until finally metawidget to move, I'll be at dinner with Carl to help but him and her daddy minima. Whoever has the smallest bit of atoms weight of eemaan take him out. And so that person will be taken out. And then a lot of xojo will say that the prophets have given their shift.
This is a very important evidence By the way, that shefa is not only for one person, the process of there's multiple types of Shabbat. The prophets have given their chauffeur, the melodica have given their chauffeur, so the mother Aiko will also make sure the moon have given their chef and no one is left except, or humbled Rahimi. Now, the makuu have given their Chava no one is left. So in all of jahannam if anybody has anyone who has recognized that person, and they have an atom's weight of a man, can you imagine? Now, by the way, when is this happening? Okay, here's the point.
According to one Headey, it appears that this is happening on the Day of Judgment. However, there is no, there is not incorrect to understand that this type of shift begins from the Day of Judgment. And it lasts for as long as the law wants it to last, it is possible that somebody from genda will recognize or remember, as we said, and they will be allowed to in a way we don't understand, look down, see who is there and take that person out. And so aeons will go by, because obviously, not everybody will be taken out of jahannam. On the day of judgment. Obviously, this is common sense as well. And we learned this from other ahaadeeth as well, that, that the Johanna miyun, we're going to
come to this when we get to that the Johanna miyun will actually be told to enter agenda. And by that time, the profitsystem said, everybody in Jannah will be settled. And the gentleman will say oh, well law, there's no space in gender left. You know, what happens is that if you this happens, especially in Minar, and out of fact, when you go for Hajj, that when you come into the tent and it's empty, Mashallah Put your feet out and take that people come in, and they're like, well, there's no space, there's supposed to be 12. No, there's eight Nope, you start arguing because now, but if all 12 go in together, they have to figure out how to do it right. So the Johanna miyun will
be on the outside looking and they will say, oh, Lord, there's no space. Everybody is just at ease now. Then, the President said, Allah will expand gender and space will be made for them, then they're going to be elected. So this is not happening on the Day of Judgment. This is not happening on the data and the point being this notion of people coming in and taking people out. Even though in one Hadith, it might appear that it's all happening on the Day of Judgment. In reality, we need to understand that this is an ongoing process. It begins on the Day of Judgment, and it will last Illa Masha Allah, it will last until the last person of jahannam has been removed. And then Allah
azza wa jal will say no one is remaining except for me, the jabaal and one version that are humble Rahimi
And no one shafa is left except for my shefa baka cefa it and the Prophet system said Allah azza wa jal will lift a handful from jahannam Yakubu a button and a handful of Allah is many, many people we cannot even imagine a laws handful. One last batch that no mahalo even recognized.
And he's he will say the process and say that he said they have never done any good deed, no Miyamoto pyron hiren caught. Now, this phrase has proved to be theologically problematic in early Islam, because what does it mean? They never did any good deed? That means literally no good deed or is this a figure of speech where what you mean to say is they really have very few good deeds, and that's the controversy, which maybe for another class we'll talk about, but the point is that it does say let me I'm gonna head on out, and then Allah will take them out and tell them to go to Agenda they would have been scarred and completely disfigured. And Allah will say jump into the
river, they will jump into that river and they will come out fully pure and fully hold again. And then they will be told to enter agenda. So this is the third category of chef chef ah for for whom guys, are you guys paying attention?
The Cabal, if the Cabal, the people that are the sinners that have entered jahannam, who will get this jefa meaning who will be allowed to make the shofar every righteous person essentially, and it's up to Allah to accept to die. So now we get to the fourth category, the fourth category of shefa.
Back on the Day of Judgment, how we're on the Day of Judgment, there will be a small group of people who shall enter Jannah with without any hisab without any other. There'll be a small group of people who will enter Jannah without any accounting.
And that group of people, they are the elite of this oma, they are the creme de la creme as they say they are the very elite of this oma because the bulk of the oma they will undergo hisab they will undergo reckoning.
But there's going to be a small group of people, they will not even have to be reckoned no auditing nothing.
That group, how do they get there?
one batch of them will get there because of the shefa of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Okay, most of them will get there because of their good deeds a level and one group will get there because our Profit System asked a lot to put them there. Okay, that's the shefa for a group of people yet who don't agenda belaid ASAP. The most famous evidence for this is a hadith that all students have knowledge and all without caffeine, they know, Sarah Huckabee, her Akasha, the famous hedid that has become an expression in Arabic. There are a number of phrases that the Prophet system said that they are now phrases that are said in the Arabic language, everybody says them, the Muslim
and the Kaffir out of they just say because it's this figure of speech. Now, the religious, the non religious, they just say this is one of those phrases subaqua we have kashia and the
origin of this, the famous hadith of embodiment of her saying that our prophets are seldom mentions that there's going to be a large group of people that they have judgment, he will see them that these are my oma and jabril will say that
of this large group 70,000 will enter Jannah believe it is up 70,000 will enter agenda belated, he's up. So someone asked the Prophet salallahu idea, he was telling them that Who are these people who are the 70,000 so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, they are those who they do not ask others to do Rukia on them, and they do not believe in omens, and they do not practice a type of medicine that was the type of burning that was done. And they put their trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala now, there's a bit of a discussion, what combines all of these characteristics and the responses would really combines them is there to what could in a law was perfect. They had perfect to what could in
Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the problem is that 70,000 will enter gender without any hisab a man stood up, and his name was Akasha or Akasha. Both of them are now a man stood up and said, I'm buying from amongst them or messenger of Allah, am I from amongst them? And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Yes, you are.
Another man stood up and said, am I amongst them too?
And the Prophet
system said what sub opaka Bihar Akasha Akasha, preceded you door closed, okay. Now,
does not explicitly mentioned that the Prophet says a Maitreya for Akasha It simply says you are amongst them. And Okasha, by the way, is a very famous hobby. He was a buddy and an od he died fighting against the motor Dean in the time of overcapacity. He was the one who in the Battle of boyhood, when his sword broke up, his he didn't have a sword, the profitsystem handed him a branch and he said, go fight with this. And his tawakkol was so strong. He took the branch and he turned to face the enemy, and he raised his hand and it converted into a sword in his hand. This is what tawakkol is right? When the President gave him a branch of stick, a twig said go fight with this.
This is the tawakkol he had, he took that stick, and he went and face the enemy and Allah converted it into a sword. That's the essence of tawakkol this was Akasha so if somebody were to say this hadith does not mention shefa we say there's another wording and Sahih Muslim, that your Akasha stood up and said, Jada Sula Allah, make dua to Allah, that I am of those 73 or 70,000 autorola Holy, this is the shofar here. Audra la Halle make dua that I am of the 70,000 and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Yes you are from them. Then the second man stood up make dua for me to
suck up our cash. We can't open this door then everybody is going to be asked me this. So this is a very explicit Hadith now 70,000 is that a lot or is that very small,
very small compared to the oma. That may give you some good news. In the mustard river Mohamad narrated from overcast so definitely a lot one.
Or at least to survey the Alpha and Omega to know gender ability. hisab would you home Calico Marine, a little battery, Hulu, boom Appleby, Roger Anwar head.
I have been gifted 70,000. By the way, this is another evidence I have been gifted a lot of gifted me This is a gift to me, the 70,000 that this is something Allah gave for me. I have been given 70,000 of myeloma, they shall enter agenda without hisab. Their faces are as bright as the full moon in the middle of the month later till better is the 15th of the month to the 14th night and their hearts are all the same pure hearts. Then he said first visit to rob be as a virgin. I asked Allah for more than 70,000 fuzzer Danny mokulua Hayden, severe enough that Allah gifted me, for every one of the original batch, there shall be another 70,000
so hamdulillah it is not only 70,000 and this shows us the mercy that our Prophet system had, that Allah gifted him and he doesn't need this gift. But he loves the oma so much. He said what? I want more ojala I want more. So Allah gifted me for every one another 70,000 where are the mathematicians? How much is that very quickly?
Very good. You are an accountant.
I can't even repeat that.
alone was done enough. So the quickness of your response.
I left a headache May Allah give you more Baraka insha Allah to Allah you and your race that hamdulillah
that's too good. I can't even repeat the sorry, you have to go to him the other 4.9 billion. He said Mashallah. 70,000 by 70,000 is 4.9 billion now, Is that a lot?
4.9 billion, how many Muslims are right now in this world?
Yes, but there are exponentially increasing. So if you do the math 4.9 billion seems
a lot a bit problematic. You're an accountant. So you're, and you're not him. So it's like, Okay, so this a lot. Now, there's another version, which actually makes more sense. There's another Hadeeth and realized Hadeeth. By the way, you should all know how these might be authentic. But the wordings generally speaking, they're narrated from the people in the chain. In other words, the concept has been preserved. But the actual wordings are not the Koran is not like the Quran, the Hadith, the concept has been preserved, but the wordings and that's why if you do a analysis of all the wordings of the headings, right, you find variations of one headings. You find the variations because they're
So in another handy thing, Timothy Actually, this makes more more sense. The wording is as follows. I asked Allah for more.
And so for every 1000 of the original, Allah gave me another 70,000. Can you do that mathematical calculation?
accountants out. For every 1000 Allah gay men are
close, but not quite
4.9 million, close 104 point 9 million.
So from 4.9 billion to 4.9 million is a huge difference. And that actually makes more sense. 4.9 million, I did it at home, don't worry, I am neither this nor that. Okay. I'm a simple
chemical engineer with a minor in Chemistry and almost mathematics, but they cannot do these calculations automated. So that makes actually more sense. But anyway, Allah knows best we hope is 4.9 billion, we hope. But both versions are there for every 170 1000 for every 1000, another 70,000. And a lot of zildjian knows best. The time is limiting. Oh, so let's finish up quickly. The next category of shefa.
The next category of shefa is what is called the general or generic shefa for everybody. And this shafa is the shofar that no one from the oma of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam no one who believed in the Nabi sallallahu Sallam shall remain in jahannam permanently, this is a generic chef ah Now, is this the same as the shefa for Ll kabbah. It could be could be some have glossed over this because it is added carbide. And some have said this issue for arm. So, really it depends on how you look at it. But there's one headache that every Muslim needs to know and think about, and appreciate and thank Allah for and then since a lot upon the Prophet system, so there's one Hadith
that really deserves that we actually make this a separate category. And this is as follows. The Hadith is a Muslim fully authentic, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, every single nebby was given one dua, that Allah guaranteed that Allah will give him that one Mr. Java, and every Nabhi used his dog in this dunya every Nabhi use that door.
As for me, I have held on to my da, W. I've hidden it, I've kept it, I've kept it to myself, and I will use it on the day of judgment as a chef, for my own, any one who dies with not enough ilala in one direction, anyone who dies without committing ship will get that shift.
So this shafa it is for every single believer in our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it shows us the sacrifice. There are prophecies that did he could have used this to offer so many things. He could have used this to our advantage. He could have used this to up a taboo he could have used it and for his uncle about it. He could have used this there are so many times but he kept it that I want to use the one wish that I have with a wonder app it is for my entire Ummah, that Allah azza wa jal will shall eventually forgive them. So this is a beautiful category. Is it the same as that of Kabbalah? Maybe, but it's a beautiful Hadith that because of that, we can put it in
a separate category This is we put it number five, and you can put it ahead of Kabbalah essentially, is the same thing, in some ways that everybody who's a Muslim will have that shift. I want to finish this up, there's three more very quickly. Number six shefa to enter the gates of gender or shefa, to open the gates of gender, or shefa. For the people of gender to enter gender, no one will enter Jannah up until the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the one who knocks on the doors, the first person to knock on the doors of gender will be the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he will be the one whom the angels will open the door for so this is the shafa the asking for opening
the gates of gender. And in the Hadith in Bukhari as well that Allah azza wa jal will say to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that take this group of people and enter Jannah from Alba will a man from the right door and only this group will enter from the right door and then the rest of your oma will share with the rest of the members all the other doors so there's a special door, the first door to open and our profits.
We'll be opening that door and the people who will enter the lady herself, they will enter with that door. So once again, this is a category of shefa that is only to our profit system and that is opening the doors of gender. Number seven shafa. For the people of Medina, there's a special category of only our profit system has it had the physical body that Medina is a blessing city, Medina to Adam Medina is a hidden sacred city between these two planes of rock. And then he said that whoever is patient, at the problems of Medina, the trials of Medina, the diseases of Medina because Medina was a moist climate Morocco was a dry climate. And the people of Makkah found Medina
very difficult to live, whoever is patient, so they're going through a lot of issues. The prophets have said whoever is patient at the trials of Medina, the issues of Medina, that I shall be a shaffir for him on the Day of Judgment. Okay.
And in the Hadith of
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that many stato I mean come and Yarmuth Phil Medina failure modes Bihar, for any ash fell lemonia more to be heard that whoever amongst you is able to die in the city of Medina let him die in the city of Medina. Because whoever dies in Medina, I will make shefa for him. Aloma in an ethical motive humanity Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam would definitely be a lot but we asked a larger for a death in Medina and buried and Berkeley as well is a great, great honor. And our professors hadn't made a special day and a special shout out for him. In fact, it is the last thing that he did when he was healthy. The last thing that he did when he was healthy in the
middle of the night gibreel said to him go to buffet. And so he walked in the middle of the night to buffet and he may do all for them and he came home and he fell sick and he passed away because of that sickness. That was the last thing that he did. So the people of Medina are blessed, those who live there and those who die there and those who are buried there. So whenever you go to Medina, that should be our daughter. We ask Allah for a death in Medina and whatever the hot tub would famously say, I want to die in Medina and I want to die a Shaheed and his son said Yeah, but you can't combine between the two. Dying the Shaheed means faraway, dying in Medina means over here you
can't combine and he said Allah, Allah Krishna and Kadir and Omar hottub, died a shade and he died in Medina. So this is category number seven, quickly two more and then we're done. Category number eight,
the shefa to raise the status of the people of Ghana to a higher level of gender.
So this is a very simple category we all understand, okay, this is somebody who got a C minus.
somebody made shefa, a loved one, and he got to a B. Okay, and this is a very common category. And some of our scholars have said, this is the default of every person of gender, that if you make it to gender, you can make shefa, for those within Janna to be raised to a level with you if you want them to be there, because our Profit System said what? Admiral Norman, a hub, okay, whoever you love, you will be with that person. So this is a shefa that everyone has at the Profit System has it the righteous habit, every person have agenda, according to one opinion. Again, there's nothing explicit that literally says that people will rise up in gender stuff like that, but the concept we
find it Okay, the concept home was was your home, them and their wives will be together. Okay? The concept will Latina Armani or whatever items are returned, be managed? And how can I be him to return home? Those that were good, their children were good, we will allow the children to be with them in general, how is that going to happen? except through the category of shefa? Nobody's gonna get demoted, obviously. Right? Nobody goes down. So what's going to happen? They will be allowed to be together in gender. And there is evidence for this in a beautiful head Ethan was named Mohammed and other and also there's a version of it in Bahati where the Prophet system said when somebody
passed away, his name was Abu Salah Allahu mo fiddley Abby selama waterfire Daraa Jetta who filler in Li arafat Donna Jetta Who? What does this mean? raise his ranks. This is that shefa raising the ranks? Okay, so that's the shefa for raising the ranks. The final category number what now who's taking notes anybody taking notes? Mashallah, you're not taking notes but you memorize very good Michelle. Number nine, the final category that is unique to our Prophet solo Selim shefa for his uncle.
Ibis rhodiola one said, Oh, my nephew,
his his nephew, your uncle,
he really did a lot for you, and he protected you. And he took so much on for you.
Were you able to benefit him in any way with either died or non Muslim? Were you able to benefit him anyway? The Prophet sallallahu I sent him said, Yes, I made shefa for him.
And because of that, Allah has taken him from the depths of Jannah the very depths of jahannam and moved him to the corner, the peripheral regions which are not as intense, and were it not for my shafa he would have remained in the depths of jhana.
So this chifa our scholars say is unique because no other human, no other Muslim no other Angel can make shefa for
no one Kapha discovered, but our Prophet system was allowed to make a partial shefa and that chef I was not enough to get a booth outside of Ghana because in the end, he did not worship a lot. And if you don't worship Allah, there is no hope. He rejected Islam knowing what Islam was, but our Prophet system because we thought it wasn't a normal regular cafard he took on so much pressure, and he remained firm upon justice and he stood up for the truth and he sacrificed his ego and his reputation for the sake of the one person who is the most precious and all of mankind and that is his nephew, the profits are set up. So because he took care of the profits are seldom that helped
him partially what was that partial thing? I made sure for my uncle and because of my shefa he said he is now fee blah blah henneman enough, he is from the very corner of jahannam were it not for my chifa he would be in the car in the very depths of jahannam these are the nine categories of shefa. Time is very late. inshallah I will stop here next week, we will continue inshallah Tada.
