Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah, who Allah Allah, He will be here and welcome aboard. So we continue from where we left off regarding the Day of Judgment. And I has I had mentioned already the issue of meeting Allah and the issue of being displayed in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we now move on from where we left off. And the next issue that I want to shed light on and again, I reiterate all of these aspects, we are not necessarily going in chronological order, rather, each one of these can occur at any point on the Day of Judgment. And we're trying to look at all of these various aspects and then bring the
evidences as for the actual detail sequence of events, we do not have an exact idea, we might have some generic idea and I'm going roughly in that generic idea, but one of the key points is that it does appear that the day of judgments events are going to be relative for each person, each person is going to face slightly different issues and scenarios and the timeframe will also be different for from person to person. So again, I reiterate we are not necessarily going in every single chronological issue, rather we are gathering the evidences for every issue, and then inshallah moving on. So the next issue we talked about the magic of Allah and the output or the Guru is
Roberto Zoo de la Eduardo kaha. We now move on to the issue of a lush panel with either speaking to the creation and the creation hearing the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is again something that is very explicit in both the Quran and in the Sunnah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions for example, insulins are off verse six to seven felonious ln Ladino autoseal at him what an S ln nurseline. We will ask those who were sent a prophet, and we will ask the prophets themselves. So Allah will ask this asking is a part of the hisab it is a part of the reckoning and Allah subhanho wa Taala will begin by talking to the prophets and this is mentioned in a number of
verses of them. sudama ada verse 109, that Allah subhana wa tada says, yo Miyajima Allahu Rasul Allah fire kulu Mirza ojibwa tomb on the day that Allah will gather all of the prophets, Allah will ask them, What responses did you get? What was the response of your people? And with regards to the specific questioning of mankind, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions a certain hedger verse 92 to 93 for big L and s and then the home Agia Marina can we are Maroon, so by your Lord, we are going to ask each and every one of them what they used to do for Arabic Allah is getting a custom I swear by your Lord, that we will let an S ln whom we will question them, all of them without any without any
exception. And a lot as the word just says walkway for whom in homeless alone, stop them right here and there. Don't just let them go on stop them. They're going to be questioned and interrogated. And there's a number of a Heidi's in this genre as well. of them is a beautiful Hadith in Sahih Bukhari which is actually such an amazing Hadith. It is the famous hadith of Abdullah heaven on Isla de la putana. And in which he said that I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, Yeah, sure. lohana a yarmulke maturo Ratan who fatten overland Boma that Allah subhanho wa Taala will gather all of mankind on the Day of Judgment, they will be naked they will be barefoot. They will be
uncircumcised the way that their mothers gave birth to them for you know Id him Bill saltin Yes, marry whom and Barbuda karma is Meru humann korova he will then shout out to them the word is unity and NIDA is to speak with a voice he will then address them with a loud voice. And then obviously the speech of a law is not like our speech. The column of a law is not like our column. So what is this interesting adjective or description that our Prophet sallallahu wasallam said yes, Maru whom and Barbuda comma Yes, Maru whom and Cordoba, the one who was formed.
away, we'll hear it in the same manner as the one who was nearby. So when I speak, the one who is close to me will hear it better than the one who is far away. The speech of Allah is not like our speech and his column is not like our column and every attribute of his is not like our attribute. So the Prophet says a missing Allah will speak to them with a loud unity him busselton is going to be a loud voice, but that voice that is that is going to be heard. It is something that Allah subhana wa tada is characterized by and so the one who is far will hear it in the exact same manner as the one who is near and then Allah will say, nl medical Ana de Yan, I am the king and I am the
one who shall be the ultimate judge all subjugate themselves to me and then medical Ana de Yan, everyone will hear a luxury reckoning and a last statement regarding himself that today I am the king I know medical and and a day yet, and the prophet SAW that I mentioned in a number of Hadith that Allah xojo will speak to Adam and he will address Adam and Allah will speak to noi and Allah will speak to Ibrahim and Allah will speak to the Prophet Mohammed subtle Allahu alayhi wa sallam. And these this speech will of course be to the prophets and then of course, Allah subhanaw taala will also speak to the believers as for those who rejected Allah subhana wa Tada. There are some
evidences that says that Allah will speak to them and there are other evidences that says that Allah will not speak to them. So how do we interpret this for example, there is the phrase that is very common in the Quran, law you can limo whom Allah who yo pm et voila, yonder la mala is a key him, Allah will not even speak to them and Allah will not look at them and Allah will not purify them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the Koran, part of Sofia, hawala to kill the moon, be quiet and do not speak to me whether to call limani do not speak to me. And in the Hadith in Sahih Bukhari the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said telethon law you can leave your home alone okay Amity
while I am Dora Zeki him the three are the people alone will not look at them and alone will not speak to them and alone will not purify them. And these three different narrations gives give different things but overall, it is the one who is arrogant and the one who is using Allah's name in vain. So multiple categories that people are mentioned, but it is very explicit three are the people that Allah subhana wa Taala will not speak to them and not look at them. And therefore there is this notion of Allah not looking and Allah subhanaw taala not speaking, whereas in other verses we hear and we get the impression that all of the creation will hear the voice of Allah subhanho wa Taala,
even Kathir he comments on these two genres of evidences. And he says that what this means is that Allah will not look to them a look of mercy, and Allah will not speak to them a speech of mercy, because we have other evidences that all of mankind, they will be in front of Allah subhana wa tada and Allah will look upon all of mankind, yet there are going to be some people that he looks at with a look of mercy. And those who reject a lot, they will not be given that look, as also the issue of Allah not speaking, others have commented or two in others, they comment that the Day of Judgment is very long. And at times the speech of Allah for the one who rejects a lot will be a punishment. And
at times the silence of Allah will be a punishment, both of them will be a punishment for those who rejected Allah subhana wa Tada, How so? So imagine, and again, I'm only giving this example so that we in this world understand, imagine that a tyrannical regime has, has taken some people to jail. And they cannot even speak to the judge, they cannot even speak to a court of law, that cutting off is a type of torture for them, then imagine if they are brought in front of a judge that the only purpose is to say that this person is punished, and the judge is going to sentence them to be punished. That too is a punishment for them. So again, I'm giving a worldly example not in order to
compare that to Allah, but to compare the situation that we might understand in this world, and then extrapolated to the next world, when such a person is not spoken to, and is in solitary confinement, that is a torture. And when he is brought in front of a tribunal that has already decided his fate, and he's guilty, that too is a torture. So we can reconcile this conflicting evidence by stating at certain timeframes, Allah subhanho wa Taala will not speak and will not allow them to speak and that is a punishment to them. And at other timeframes Allah will speak to them and that speaking itself is going to be obviously the height of terror because when a medic is speaking to you, and when
Allah subhana wa tada is going to take
You and pointed out to your own sins and you know they are true. Imagine how terrified that is going to feel. So this is how we reconcile in the Quran and the Sunnah, the notion of Allah subhana wa tada sometimes speaking, and sometimes not speaking to the one who rejects him. So, this is the issue of Allah azza wa jal looking upon the creation, the creation, some segments of the looking upon Allah, Allah just speaking to the creation, now we get to this issue of the actual hisab or the actual reckoning and this to it is multifaceted. And again, I'm going to start off this week and then next week, I'm going to move on to another aspect of the hisab because the hisab or the
reckoning he said means to wreckin his that means to go over so, the accountant in Arabic is called them or hasebe. So, the one who does hisab and the calculate is called audited, his Alberta has super the computer is called the Hassoun. So these are things that are used for calculations. So when we say the hisab, we mean the actual reckoning line by line what is going to happen, what what when we hand in, if you like our forms, there's going to be a hisab checking, and it will be done in multiple ways and bachelors is going to be multiple mechanisms. And so today we're going to begin and next week inshallah, we will continue this issue of how the ASAP is done. So, one of the
mechanisms of hisab and in fact, the one that we want is what is called aloud and we already mentioned this last week, and that is simply the overall examination that Allah subhana wa Taala will look upon the entire creation. And as we explained last week, for some people, that in and of itself is all there hisab will be every one of us will have a private moment with Allah subhanho wa Taala and that private moment that even though we're all surrounded by billions and billions of people, at that point in time, it will be as if we are alone, as if Allah subhana wa tada is focusing every attention on us that is going to be our perception and obviously everybody else will
be having the same if you like one on one with Allah subhana wa tada as a bus or the Avatar and was famously asked, how will Allah do the hisab of all of mankind simultaneously, and even Abbas responded the same way that he provides them their sustenance simultaneously, every human being his or her needs are taken care of as we live by it is coming your risk is coming the birds it is because coming the fishes it is because coming simultaneously, Allah is taking care of all of our sustenance, why can you not take care of all of our reckoning simultaneously as well. So the one of the mechanisms of this reckoning and it is going to be the lightest and it is going to be the stage
that is the least difficult and it is the stage that we want. And that is the stage of the outcome or the generic presentation. And the notion of a generic presentation. It is mentioned explicitly in the hadith of mahadi narrated by Bahati from our mother, a Chateau de la wine hab that she stated that once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Manu kashia, Ruthie, that whoever is going to be questioned, and whoever is going to be examined, that is going to be a punishment. Okay, so there's something called the Nick posh, and then a posh in Arabic, it means a back and forth or it means a detailed examination. And so for example, when a graduate student or a PhD student when he's
defending his dissertation, this is called the monaka. When people are debating it is called monaka. So this is the back and forth so our Prophet sallallahu I said him use the same verb, the same now and when new Keisha Ruth VIP that whoever has this new Porsche whoever is going to be examined Look at this, look at that. Look at this, look at that, that is going to be an either, so Isha rhodiola. One has said Yasuo Allah doesn't Allah say in the Quran that for so for your handsome boy his seven year see are all that they're going to be people that will have an easy ASAP How can it be? When Allah is saying it's going to be an easy hisab and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that allow to do that which we're talking about in the verse is the presentation the out it is not a defense. It is not an examination. It is a presentation. What are the two Arabic words Nick harsh or monaka and out the harsh Menorca zip then Akash is point by point go over the entire list one by one that is going to be the monaka that is going to be the the detailed examination. The accounting
The other one out, it is just your generic okay? That's it move on, not line by line. And so when Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran for Sophia, you have several his seven year Sierra, he will be accounted for with an easy accounting, that's what we want. We want the easy accounting. You know, this happens in, you know, especially in some of the smaller schools these days, the systems are so much in checks and balances. But I remember when I was growing up, the same thing happened, that the teachers knew the students so well, that they knew who's going to score, you know very well and who's not going to score. So So and the ones that they knew would get the A, the ones that were the
top top top students, the teachers would go over bit by bit, they would just glance through it, make sure they've done it, and simply put a and handed back. Whereas the ones who are the B, the C, the struggling students, you have to really examine bit by bit to see if they really passed, or they got an A minus or a B plus. Whereas the ones who were solid, the ones who know they're always at the top of the class, when you hand in your paper, just gonna give a flick of it just look at and say, okay, everything's there, he's not going to go answer line by line, because he knows from your background, he knows from your and obviously, these days, we don't do that, because of all the checks and
balances. And I don't know, teachers have become this and that so but you know, when I was growing up, it was I remember this happening a number of times, and, you know, it's something that and it was understood that and nobody complained, because everybody knew this student deserves it, what he's done, he's actually deserves it that this person is has has brought forth a level of consistency all the time, that once he hands in a paper, you know, I don't need to go and check. I know the quality of the student that in Arabic is what the prophet sallallahu I said, I'm called to do just the overall flicking through that style. And that's what Allah says in the Quran, that
whoever does good, and whoever believes and comes with good deeds for so for you has a seven year See, he shall be given an easy hisab and the one who will have to go line by line, even if he passes by the way, going line by line does not mean he is going to go the agenda. No, our Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, manure krisha Let me give you an example that once again, we just to give you an example, nobody should think that I'm comparing this dunya with the Afghan. But imagine on your tax forms, right that even if you did everything correctly, and the government sends you a male error message like we want receipts, we want evidence that every single line of yours is accurate.
Even if you did everything accurately. For you to be under government scrutiny is a type of punishment. This is what the prophet sallallahu I sent him is saying Menorca if Allah is going to ask you for every single point, even if you pass that is a type of punishment that you don't want. And the ultra righteous the the the most highest level of a man will not get that it is going to be those that they're good and bad deeds are struggling with one another. They're kind of sort of mediocre, or even worse than this. Those are the people line by line it will be going over. And this is one concept of and in Akash. Another concept we need to understand is that there will actually be
physical evidence presented in the court of law. On that Day of Judgment, there will be Exhibit A and what is that ultimate exhibit? What is the main point of evidence that will be brought forth, the main point of evidence is going to be the scroll of deeds that our own actions have written down through the medium of the angels. So the notion of our scrolls and the notion of our own deeds being presented back to us is a central motif of the Day of Judgment there are more than two dozen evidences in the Quran and Sunnah combined, that mentioned that we will be getting our deeds that we ourselves have done back on the day of judgment and we will be getting them back via the means of
scrolls. What is a scroll, so, in Arabic two words are used. So health and kita both are used and both of them have similar meanings. So health means rolled up and Kitab means opened up and both of these are used and Allah subhana wa tada mentions this concept in the Koran of our good deeds being written down. And this is something that every single one of us knows we hear about us as we are children. And it is something that is mentioned in the Koran that we have angels that are recording each and every deed of ours. And of course this is a concept that is well known. Allah says in the Quran that I need immediate family are IID on his right and on his left that are sitting down my
yellow feudal man Colin Not a single word old here means
Not a single word does He say except that there are they are rocky bone it now some people have mis understood that Allah is naming one of them but okay and the other it no okay but it is not a proper noun here it is an adjective describing their states and receiving it here it is in the place of an adjective and what is means here, he is observant and it is basically a guardian. So, a maraca and it he is the one making sure nothing slips. So Allah is describing the two angels not naming them. So, this concept of there being angels constantly writing down what we have done this is something that is again very clear in the Koran and in the sun. For example in Sudan Enfield Lord, Allah
subhana wa tada says we're in a coma Hatfield lien. Indeed you have those that are protecting you care our men catty been they are noble writers get on and they are noble. The angels are noble cacti been there scribes, what do they write? Yeah, the moon ama the following they are they know exactly what you have done. So they're writing down the deeds that you have done, and in sort of Allah and we're on verse 181, Allah subhanho wa Taala challenges those who have done a wrong and Allah says to them sat next to buma pilu. We are writing down what they have said. We are writing down what they have said sudo as seen in the famous verse in the first page of sudo. Yes seen in No, no, no he'll
motor why neck tomorrow.
We shall indeed resurrect the dead and we are writing down neck Today we are writing down all that they have done to send forward their good deeds or bad deeds. And we are writing down even their footsteps were a third of whom, in other words, that book is so comprehensive that nothing shall be escaping from it, including every step that you have taken while Kula Shay in US Lena houfy Mr. Moon will be in and every single thing that they have done, we have preserved it in the original registrar a law calls that the Imam and the Imam here is the registrar, not the one that you follow, but rather Your life is following that registrar. Everything that you do, your registrar is
recording it. It is like an Imam because you follow the Imam so to your registrar follows your life right so a coalition a signer who FEMA removing everything that they have done. We have recorded it in a clear Imam and it is something that is again very clear suited Toba verse 101 22 121 Allah subhana wa tada says makonnen added Medina tea woman How will a homemade al Arabi and yet a holla for our Rasulullah he was awesome and never say that it is not appropriate for the people of Medina and for the Bedouins around that the city of Medina that they stay behind when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam goes out, and that they don't prefer themselves over him. This is not right that
you prefer yourselves over the Prophet sallallahu I said them. Then Allah says that is because and the Himalayas evohome of oma on whether or not someone what am I most often see Sevilla while I own a multi annual De Luca Farah so Allah goes on too long list of things that whenever they become thirsty whenever they become tired, whenever they become hungry in the way of Allah whenever they take one step in the way of Allah to enrage those who reject Allah subhanho wa Taala. Whenever they do anything against an enemy, Allah says in the kuti Bella home, except that it shall be written down for them. So once again, the concept of Kitab or writing down and by the way, it is not just
two angels, it is not just two angels. Indeed, two angels are assigned, no doubt. But there are more than two angels that are writing things down. And on the Day of Judgment. It's not just going to be the two angels, it will be multiple angels that have written our deeds. So the author will be us via the ink of the angels we will be the author. When we recognize when we see that book, we will know we are the author, we will know we are the ones who wrote that via the medium of various angels and it's not just the two angels. There are other evidences for example, the Hadith and cyber hottie that are Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said either kanuma, Juma it worker Fatima, Ecuador
Alibaba mestu, the yocto bonello. What a word that on the day on the day of Juma the angels, they stand outside the door and they write down the names of the people in order that they come in, and the one who comes in early will get the more reward. So there are angels that are writing down that good deed, and the other hand is also an unstoppable hottie and other books.
That the Prophet sallallahu wasallam once prayed Salah, and when he stood up to the record, he said semi Allahu demon hamedan. Allah hears the one who praises him and so a man her
This and a man just instinctively he didn't know this. He's just simply said that Robin welcome him to Hamden Cathedral on urban America and fee mill SMRT.
Mr. Shute dimension and by the end of the night it will match the half Kumar Carla Hall Abdul kulula cobden. He goes on and on praising Allah subhanho wa Taala. When the Salah finished, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Who said that? And there was silence. Then he repeated Who said that? And the man sheepishly said hello, Sula. I did and I didn't mean anything wrong. I just tried to just trying to praise Allah, the prophets. The law where I sent him said, verily, I saw more than 30 angels rate racing to see who writes writes at first and takes it back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. In other words, what trades you have said is so beautiful, all of the angels, they were in a
competition, who's going to finish writing down and who's going to take it back to Allah subhana wa Tada. So these 30 angels are not just the angels that are assigned to us. Indeed, we have angels that are assigned to us and our Prophet sallallahu. I said, I mentioned this yet Alfa buena comida. It could be a woman, it could have been an hour, the angels take shifts with you, not because they're, they're bored, not because they get tired, not because they have to go sleep. No, it's because they want to worship Allah in different ways. And then a part of their worship is to take care of our good and bad deeds and write them down. So we have shifts of angels, and those shifts
are at selected ledger and selected acid. If we're praying those two Salawat regularly, the angels will report good news back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so the concept of the angels writing down is something that is well known and by the way, we should really humble ourselves in front of Allah for so many blessings, and of those blessings is the following one. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Hadith is in Muslim environment and others that Allah subhanho wa Taala has said in the law, cuttable has NLT was art. Allah has written down all of the good deeds and the bad deeds, Allah is writing down femen Hammurabi has enitan. Whoever sincerely desires to do one good deed, even if
he doesn't do it, Allah will write for him a good deed fully and completely. And if he manages then to actually do it, then a law will write for him between 10 to 700 times the reward of that one good deed that he did, and whoever desires to do an evil deed, but he does not end up doing it. Then Allah subhana wa tada will write for him a good deed meaning if he thought of a bad deed, and he said, No, no, I'm not gonna do it. A fear Allah subhana wa Tada. he changes his mind. The mere fact that he changed his mind. He's sitting and doing nothing. The thought of stealing something came to him, he's tempted, then he goes, No, I'm not gonna steal, just because he fought an internal desire,
and he's sitting doing nothing, a lower right for him full good deed, then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, and if he ends up doing that evil deed, then he shall get the evil of one deed, subpoena law. Our book is not proportionate. No, look, everything is stacked in the favor of good deeds. Everything is stacked. If you desire to do a good deed, then you changed your mind for whatever reason, still, you get some reward, if you ended up doing the good deed, you will get from 10 to 700. If you desire to do an evil deed, and you changed your mind for the fear of Allah, you will still get a reward. So three of the four times only in the last one, if you actually ended up
doing an evil deed, you get written one evil deed. So this book, it is not a fair book in accordance with the fairness of this world. It is a merciful book that only the Most Merciful could write for us. It is a book that we could not even write for ourselves. It is a book that is stacked in our favor. And so whoa to the one who is not able to take advantage of the mercy and the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we learned that this deed are sorry these books that we are writing because we are the authors right in indirect census our good days and bad days, these deeds and books will then be returned to us and they will be unfolded in front of us. We will be shown our own
books that we have authored. Allah says in the haoran way the circle foo, no Sriracha, and this is of course, when the elf one the scrolls are spread out. So the source of our scrolls, and new Shira is to open and unfold, unfold and amount of poverty comments on this and he says that, that is the day when the scrolls of our good and bad deeds that were rolled up because of our debts they've now finished they will be opened
Since they haven't been closed at the time of our debts, now come Day of Judgment, they're going to be opened up and we will see the deeds that were written down the both the good and the bad way the social no shirat and of the most famous verses as well that really demonstrates that we are the ones that have authored this book and we will get our own book back the book that we have authored. We will see it published in front of us we will see it in its pristine and fresh form the first print we will see it on the Day of Judgment. Allah says in the Quran in surah is Surah verse 14 and 15
wakulla insan in Assam now, Paul era houfy Ron okay he and every person we have attached his ba ba it here it is translated as fate or his decree or his destiny or his book cool let in sign in as him now Who taught you how to have your own Okay, he will yo malkia Mati I will not read you know your Nakayama T and on the Day of Judgment we shall take out for him keytab and a book Well, no honey, Judah who Yama Yama, Kitab, and Yoko who must Torah he's gonna find this book Matura spread in front of him, if caught.

sufficient is you yourself to be your own judge on the Day of Judgment. This is a powerful verse, I want you to look it up and read it yourself suitable Isra verses 14 to 15. So that is verses 14 to 15. If Cora katabatic read your own book, guthaben upcycle, yo Malaika Seba, and this book, of course, will contain every single deed that we have ever done. This is again reiterated I mentioned this verse two weeks ago. I'll reiterate it through the calf. Verse 49.
Well, we'll do allocatable and the book shall be brought out where will they allocate out the book, the book shall be brought out further on which remain and wish to Canaan in fee. The sinners, the criminals will be terrified of this own book that they see in it, what they see will terrify them, so their own book will terrify them. Why are poor Luna yawei that Anna Marie Hotel kitabi. And they will say woe to us what type of book is this? That's how we should translate the meaning here, what type of book is this? What is this book here that we are seeing? Now you have the roof so the rotten weather can be rotten in I saw her neither a small nor a large deed is left everything is recorded
in it. And then Allah says, What would you do if you held it all? All the data themselves have done they will find it in front of them. We are the authors of this book that Allah subhana wa tada will return to us on the Day of Judgment. What would you do Mamadou? How are ya? Giovanni Maura, buka, Haida and Allah subhana wa tada will know will show no one injustice on that day. It is your own good deeds. Erica kita back, read your own good deeds. These are your deeds. These are my deeds. We're going to be seeing what we have done in this world and we will be presented back our own book that we have authored. And the purpose of course here is exactly as Allah says, Kapha BNF sicario
Malaika shahida you will be your own witness against yourself. You will testify against yourself and this is mentioned in a hadith incident, a be dealt with and others that unnecessarily idiomatic radi Allahu taala and narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once laughed, and then under said the arrow Sula, why are you laughing? So he said to them, Do you know why I am laughing? I am laughing from the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala with his servant, on the day of judgment, the servant will say that, oh my lord, Didn't you promise me that you will not be unjust, Allah will say, I did, indeed promise. And so the servant will say, so then today, I will not allow anyone
other than myself to testify. In my case, I'm not accepting anybody. So what is the point here? So you know, on in the court of law, if there is an enemy, then you can say to the judge, this is a conflict of interest this person, I don't trust him this person, we have an issue here, you know, some bad, you know, money or whatever, some debts and whatever. He said something I said something, this person is not a neutral Western witness. And, you know, in any court of law, one of the main points of defense is to impute the credibility of the witness, you know, the defense lawyers gonna come and say that person he has a reason to lie. He's not a trustworthy, he's not a credible
witness, throw his testimony out. And so if that is done, then the judge will say, ignore everything you heard. So
On the day of judgment, Allah is saying our prophets are saying, a person will come. And he will say, Oh Allah, you promised this to be adjusted trial, Allah will say, yes, the man will say, I don't trust any other human being, meaning he's going to try to get out of any witnesses and he's going to say, let me testify about myself. And so I'm not going to allow any external testimonies. And I'm only going to accept myself as a Shaheed as a witness as a showerhead and I show you this to testify. So Allah subhana wa tada will say, today, you alone will be a witness against yourself. And the books will be brought that the cattlemen cattlemen have written, and his mouth will be sealed.
And his body will speak and Allah will say, empathy, and so his body will speak with his deeds, and the book is going to testify to all that he has done, then after all of this is done, then his mouth will be allowed to speak and his mouth the first thing it will say, it will rebuke his own body, and it will say all that I did, I did it for you all the sins that I did, we did it for each other, I did it for you. But of course, it will be too late for all of that. The point being this is a beautiful narration that indicates what is the purpose of these books being given back to us. The purpose of these books being given back to us is so that no one can accuse a law of any injustice,
no one can say you brought an external witness, and I don't trust this witness, we will testify against ourselves and our books will be enough. And we will not be able to reject what is in the books, because we have authored them, and our bodies will testify to them. And remember, these detail line by lines will not take place for the righteous for the righteous. It'll simply be passed and go forward. And of course, this will be a time of great confusion and great fear. Once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam returned back to his house and our mother, our Isha was there and she was crying. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said what is causing you to cry? He said, and this
is such a beautiful Hadith. I am scared of Johanna mia rasulillah I am scared of jahannam will you remember your family on that day? Will you remember all of us on that day, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said three times, no one will remember anyone else three times no one will remember anyone else. The first of them. When the measles is brought forth, the issue of measles will be our next week's topic. measles is the scales, the first of them when the measles is come out. And everyone will be busy in his own thoughts until he knows whether it will be heavy or light. So this is one of the three times when no one will think of anyone else. The second of them,
when the Kitab when the book is brought out, and it will be said, Come read your own book. And a person will be in complete absorbing, no one will think of anybody else until the person knows whether he will be given his book from his right or from his left or from behind. So this is the second time when the book is brought out. That's what we're talking about today, the book. And then the third time when no one will remember anybody else is one this at all is placed over jahannam when the bridge is placed over jahannam and people are told to cross the bridge. So this hadith is a very powerful one that makes us pause and think three times our Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Even
he and none of humanity will think of anybody else. And of course, he said this as a type of mobile as a type of exaggeration. As for the prophets, and especially our profits, little while, while he was selling, he shall be thinking of his own money at all of these times. But this is just a point of making us understand that three times the average person will be completely absorbed in his own thoughts of them. Number one, when the scales are brought out, number two, when the book is brought out, our books are keytab and number three, when the bridge is laid these three times and these scrolls are these books, they will be brought out and we will be given a chance to see through all
of them. And as I mentioned in the last lecture as well, that it is also possible based on one Hadeeth that has some slight weakness, we mentioned that last time, it is also possible that we will be going back and forth will be given this book will will have chance to examine it then we can defend ourselves and then the vertical be given so three times we'll have with this book that this is the evidence go and look at it. We will have the evidence then Allah subhanaw taala will allow the opportunity for us to defend if there's any defense and what defense can there be, we will admit that this is what we have done and then the
The third time will be the actual verdict and what will the verdict be? The scrolls are the books will be handed back to us, we will be given physically that our scrolls back to us. And depending on how we are given the scrolls, we will know our judgment. So this is one mechanism. Now again, I'm pre empting. There's another mechanism and that is the mes and that is the skills and we'll talk about that next week. Insha Allah tala. This week, we're doing the issue of the scrolls. Now the meezan and the scrolls their exact timeframe. Visser v. Each versus the other, we're not quite sure, it could be that the reason is before the scrolls that could be disclosed before them is that it
could be their contemporaneous at the same time. These are all issues from there in melee, we don't fully understand them. And it's not something that's going to change our email. But we should be aware of each of these facets so that we are prepared that we know we're going to get our deeds back, we know that our deeds are going to be weighed on Judgement Day. So we said that the scrolls will then be brought we will see our scrolls will have the opportunity to defend and then the scrolls will be given to us and how they are given will be either the Diploma of passing or the stigma of failure. How we pick up our own deeds, and how we return to Our families will already tell
us our results we know our results. And of course, this is something that is very clear in the Quran and the Sunnah, and Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions is sort of how a number of beautiful verses we're going to go go over them verse by verse and also sort of thought and others they mentioned these verses as well. And so let us go over one section of verses from verse number 17 onwards that Allah subhana wa tada mentions in the Quran
when Shaka December fit for him within what he will Moloch while Raja mellow out shut up because of Oklahoma, he didn't samanya that, on that day, the angels will eight of the angels will carry the throne of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So Allah mentions the Judgment Day happening. Allah mentions that on that day the event shall come to pass the heavens will crack open and Allah subhana wa Taala will come and eight angels will carry the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala while medical Allah
and the angels are surrounding meaning all around the Day of Judgment. Well yeah, middle outer shadow bigger FOCA home Yama, Eden samanya. And on that day eight shall carry the throne of Allah above them. So Allah's throne will come the whole day of judgments, if you like arena is surrounded by angels. And what then does Allah say Yama, Eden tour or Guna on that day you will be exposed. We talked about this out of the we talked about this gurus what was really left on that day you will be exposed while at the Herman Kahn law firm in Mojave nothing shall be hidden from you. On that day Allah will be able to see everything you will not be able to hide anything. Then Allah says For men,
Ooty Akita who will be meaning. Notice last week we did the issue of art, the issue of Allah looking and gazing that is mentioned here Yomi then Torridon, then the very next verse for m n o t Akita who be a meanie. So as for the one who is given his book in the right hand firehole he's gonna say how, look at this is
croqueta croquis tabea read my own book, read the book that I have done here. He's shouting with joy.

So the man is gonna say how old what color okay. tabia Come take a look at my book and read it. How about in Nirvana unto a Nikola in his Serbia? I knew that I would meet my ASAP on this day, a day would come when I would meet this actual judgment and my book is going to be returned to me. So the one who knew this, Allah subhana wa tada says, For who? or fear Isha turabian he shall have a pleasant living feagin net and Alia in a lofty garden hole tool

Now, you should have an easy life. Well, I'm an OT Akita who be Srimati he asked for those who took their book in the left hand. So we have those who took the book in the right hand. And then we have those who took the book in their left hand.
Ask for those who took the book in their left hand fire coup de la Tani Lam otaku tabea he shall say, Oh, how I wish I had never been given my book back to me when I'm at the de Maha Sabha and I don't know what my fate is going to be.

Maria, my money is of no use to me halakhah I need so Tanya, my power is completely destroyed. Hulu for Hulu with Jay

Well, I hope by the time and Miskin neither did he believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala nor did he encourage the feeding of the poor. So this day, he shall have no friend and his food shall be nothing other than the past or the filth of jahannam and the verses go on and on. So I want you to take a look at this section of verses. It's a very, very powerful section that describes in vivid detail the issue of Allah azza wa jal reckoning the issue
of the gurus or the out of the issue of the hisab the issue of the books, the issue of the returning of the books, the attitudes of those who get their books in the right hand versus those who get their books in the left hand and this is something again very explicit. So, the one who will get the books back, he will automatically no and only one of his hands will be active. And if he raises the right hand to take the book back, may Allah subhana wa tada make us amongst them, that will be the person who passes and the other one who raises from the left hand he knows that he will fail and he has failed the exam and inserted in Chicago as well. We have a series of verses that are again well
known to most of you, that you will insano in Nicaragua the Arabic Acadia hand formula d di un insan that all mankind You are indeed toiling to your Lord, You are laboring towards your Lord in nakaka, different era Baker Carnahan formula t so you are laboring to your Lord bit by bit journey by journey day by day trial by trial from Olathe, you are going to meet him this is the molar car this is the individual meeting of every single person so what's going to happen in the molar car look at the Quran for n o t Akita who be a meanie, as for him, who was given his book in the right hand, for so for you have several his seven years he he shall get an easy his job, he shall get an easy his

our scholars mentioned that not everybody who gets in the right hand will necessarily not have the nakash It is possible that the Muslims that are struggling, they might enter Jannah but on the Day of Judgment, they might be punished slightly by having to go through each and every step of their so again, Allah is describing the best of the best that whoever is given their their book in the right hand, that is the person for Sophia who has over his husband yesira he shall have a very easy his way and caribou Ella and he must hurrah. And he will return back to his family in a state of happiness. He's going to come back so happy he's going to return to his family with a mom and Uday

Now again, I want you to look up these verses suited in Shia Kok, verses six to 15 or 14 you can look them up please look up these verses and
again, one of my goals in today's lectures, these types of lectures one of my goals is that you know, your evidence is you go back to the Quran and the sooner you look it up yourself you see what Allah is telling you don't just take my word for gold back to the Quran open up the Koran, so little in Chicago
verses six onwards. And notice here the beautiful,
the beautiful contrast, Allah is saying that the one who was righteous will go back to his family in a state of happiness on the Day of Judgment. And the one who was unrighteous lived a happy life in this world, and neglected the hero, so he's going to be sad in the hereafter. Notice how Allah contrasts. The one who is righteous, his ultimate happiness will be in the next life. So Allah says in the Koran, ye and kalibo, Allah, Allah, he must rule of law, he shall return back to his family, in a state of ecstasy in a state state of joy. And ask for the other one. Allah says in no kind of fee, Holly he must Hurrah he was in a state of joy amongst his own family. Now it's very, very
beautiful point here. It is, as if Allah is saying, this person's happiness was the material pleasures of this world. And those material pleasures made him feel arrogant and haughty. And he passed all of these years by in this world, and all of his happiness was his wealth and family. So Allah says, the one who got his happiness with the dunya, will not find happiness in the hereafter. Whereas the other person, he found his happiness in a law, and his wealth and his dounia was also a source of happiness, but his ultimate happiness was Allah subhana wa Tada. And when you make a lot of the ultimate goal, you get this world and the next world. And so it is not as if you have to make
a choice. And I've said this again, in a lot of my hood books and lectures, it is a common mistake, that people make this either or dichotomy, if I'm righteous, I must give up all the pleasures of this world. And if I obtain the pleasures of this world, then I am unrighteous. No, the one who chooses Allah will find the purest of pleasures in this world the most pleasurable, and he will find the pleasure and the worship of although the ultimate pleasure, and the one who chooses the pleasures of this world, will never ever be fully satiated and satisfied, forever changing the pleasures that he wants, forever digging himself deeper into his own deep and deepest desires, and
he's never going to be satisfied until death comes to him. And then he meets Allah Subhana, WA Tada. And all the happiness that he had in this world will not make him happy in the hereafter. So look at these verses how and when does Allah describe the happiness of the righteous versus the happiness of the one who was not righteous. And
the the next point here and a very interesting point.
In this series of verses Allah Subhana, WA, tada mentions that the person will get the book behind him. And the previous set of verses, Allah says, the person will get the book in his left hand.
Some of our scholars have said that there's three categories of people, the righteous will get it in the right hand, the sinners who are going to jahannam will get it in the left hand, and then the worst of the worse, and they're also going to jahannam, but they are the worst of the worst, they will get it behind their back.
Others have said that, no, it is two categories, the right and the left, but when they get it in the left hand, they will be so embarrassed, they will be so
if you like, just mortified at what has happened to them, that they will attempt to hide their scrolls by putting it behind their back. So it is the same category of people, those who get it in their left hand, and those who put it behind their back or the same category of people. And the one who is getting in the right hand. He's rushing back, he's shouting with joy. Look, I got it, I got the results. This is what I wanted. I knew I would meet Allah subhana wa Tada. And hassanal Bosley, the famous color of the tab your own. He said, Oh, son of Adam. It is as if he's like saying what's gonna happen on the Day of Judgment, oh, son of Adam. I have spread out your own parchment, and put
in charge of you two noble angels, one on your right and the other on your left. So do as you please, and increase or decrease what is written down. When you die. Your scroll will be rolled up and placed on your neck in your own grave. Then when you come out of the grave, you will see your own scroll and receive it opened up. And so ikara kita back read your own book for By Allah, whoever has placed you to be your own judge has shown infinite justice and quote, this is a hustler. bacillary extracting the scenario from the Koran and from the Sunnah, that your scrolls will be put up and tied up and then put on your neck. And again, it is as if he's getting
From the verse wakulla, inside an alumna who bought it off your own, okay he that we have placed his scrolls around his neck. It has an apostle extracted from this, when you go to your grave, there's going to be a symbolic book or scrolls that you have with you, then on that day, so you're going to literally be protecting it, nobody can tamper with it, then on the Day of Judgment, you're going to come out, and you will open up your own scrolls to see what you have done. We also learned from the Hadith that not all of these scrolls are the same length.
In one Hadith and Sunnah even imagine, the phrase occurs that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that Allah will say that unfold the scroll, so his scrolls will be unrolled out, each one of them in one Hadith that says you will have 99 scrolls, each one of them is as far as the eyes can see. So not every scroll will be the same. Depending on how long you lived and what you did, and the quantity and quality of your deeds, the length of your schools will also be different. And we can also see that perhaps there are different types of scrolls as well, that not all of the scrolls will be exactly the same. And there's a very, very beautiful Hadith in the Muslim, Debbie Mohammed. And
again, I mentioned this book many, many times it is the largest collection of, of Hadith that we have in print. And it's a beautiful Hadith that I can it was so beautiful, I wanted to read it to you from the original. And it is actually one of the last volumes of the Muslim volume number 4343. And it is Hadeeth number in the addition that I have, which is the famous law says that the reseller edition for those of you who know and it is edited by the famous scholar Shriver of note Allah have mercy on him. And he spent a long time with the team of committed dedicated scholars of Hadith to edit the entire collection. And it is honestly one of the most beautiful books of Hadith. And this
addition is a very beautiful addition to which they went over every single Hadith and they found where it's found in other narrations, they did a brief commentary on it as well. So it's a very beautiful edition, and it is published in 50 volumes 50 volumes of this imagine 50 volumes like this of the Muslim Imam Ahmed. And the way that Mr. Muhammad arranged the Sahaba. He started with Oba kodomo earthman. I don't know the long winded way, he worked his way through all of the Sahaba and then out of respect and said that he put the women at the very end because again, this is simply a matter of modesty even in books of Hadith, just to put them at the very end not to matter of
Dominica, but not simply a matter of placing them at the end. So all of the narrations of the female Sahaba are in the very last chapters. And that is why we're going to mention a hadith from our mother Ayesha, and it is in volume 43 because it is from our mother Asia. So it is found in the Muslim Asia, which is at the very end of the large compilation where the last a hadith in the Muslim are narrated by women. And we will conclude today's lecture with this hydrafacial and next time we'll have a longer q&a today. There's no time for any q&a. We'll just finish off with this beautiful Hadith from our mother Arusha. imambara narrated Hadith number is 26,031 26031 called a
handwritten osito Paul had the other one and a sadhaka to the Moosa but had detonated where Miranda Duany or Joni excuse me and yours eat Ebony Ababa news and I shall de la Juan Hippolyte Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam So are you saying that she heard the Prophet so I said I'm say a doe when we're in the law. He has his own agenda.
There are three types of Dawa we in the ones three types of registrar's there are three separate types of registrar's deewan law Yeah, but law will be behavior, there is a D one or registrar, Allah will not care about it. What the one law yet rucola hoomin who Shea and there is a D one there is a registrar, nothing that is in it will be neglected. What the one law, federal law was the origin and there's a registrar, Allah will not forgive it. So three registrar's for ama D, one lady layer for low for sure. Cabinda asked for the registrar that Allah will never forgive, it is the Registrar of schicke if a person dies, having committed should it and not repented from it. Then the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam said as Allah says in the Quran, in the hermeneutic Villa, he forgot how to Ramallah while he Jin, whoever the sheikh, Allah has made genda how long for him. So we firmly believe that the only unforgivable sin in Islam is the sin of [???] when it is done without repentance as I have explained, even the mushrik is forgiven. If he or she repents, repentance changes everything, and the repentance of the mushrik is to embrace Islam. So the first registrar will never be forgiven. If a person dies and that register is active, then he shall never be forgiven. And that is the one who is worshiping other than Allah subhanahu wa tada for ama D one and
ask for the D one or the registrar law. Yeah, bye
BHA Allah will not even care about it. For booneville Abdi nafsa who FEMA baina who may not be he min someo mintaka, who also Ratan Tata for in the Lucha Isaiah jelly l filled with Attica. Wait he was in Russia. Now this hadith requires some explanation because somebody might listen to it and misunderstand. In this narration, we are told there is a registrar, Allah will not care about it. And this is the personal sins that a person does between him and Allah subhana wa Taala. Maybe he didn't fast properly, he left us Allah that He shouldn't have left. So these personal sins, Allah subhanho wa Taala shall forgive and overlook to whomever he wants. Now, this whomever he wants is
very key. Because what it implies is for those whom Allah does not want, these sins shall be accounted for. And this is why we get to the issue of the reality of sins, you know, I'm actually giving another series as we speak. You can log on and check when I'm when I'm delivering this lecture. As of the deliverance of today's lecture, I only have one of the other series, which is called the reality of sin and Sharla. This weekend or next weekend, I'll do part two, and then we'll continue part three and four, the reality of sin. And that other series I'm talking about what is the categories of sins and how do we get sins forgiven. So now we think that series to this one,
those who sins are minor, and listen to that other series that gave their good deeds shall absolve all of the minor sins. And this hadith makes complete sense that Allah is saying or the Prophet system is saying, this registrar, Allah will not even care about. If you do only minor sins, and you have all of your YG about and you're done and you've avoided the major sins, then this will dissolve your minor sins will dissolve, you will not go to jahannam for minor sins, you might get punished other ways, but not in Jannah. As for major sins, it is up to Allah and this hadith is very clear in sha Allah, if Allah once he shall forgive, and if a low once he shall not forgive. So that's the
second registrar will do one and ask for the third registrar law yet Rico law woman who Shea Allah will not leave anything from that registrar for luminary ba, ba ba boom ba ba. This is the one that people do to one another. This is you backbiting or you slandering or you stealing, or you stabbing or you causing any harm or injustice to somebody else. Lucas or our Prophet system said you're going to have to deal with one another law Mahalla, there is no divine intervention between two people doing voting to one another. So this beautiful Hadith really demonstrates for us that the registrar's are the scrolls, whether they're going to be three separate scrolls, or whether there's
going to be Section A, Section B, Section C, we don't know. But the point is that we need to be aware that there's going to be basically three types of registrar's we need to make sure we have nothing in the [???]ter category, nothing. Then we need to make sure we have nothing in the harm to others category. We don't want to come with another person saying Oh Allah, this person said this about me this person hurt me this person harm me, that is the one Allah will not intervene. Even if Allah wants to forgive the sins between you and him in a loss infinite justice when you have harmed another person. Then Allah azza wa jal will allow those two people to deal amongst themselves and on
that day, the currency will not be golden silver, the currency will not be dollars in British pounds, the currency will not be Bitcoin and paper currency, the currency will be the currency of good deeds and evil deeds. Therefore, be aware or you Who is going around hurting other people harming other people, slandering other people stealing the money of other people be aware or you who rebels in backbiting and gossiping. Be aware or you have rebels in this in in discussing the honor of chaste men and women be aware of those who are causing volume and fitna and fast and facade amongst other people that even if your good deeds are as high as the skies, on the day of judgment,
Allah subhana wa tada will allow every single person whose honor you tarnished, who's
learned that you are guilty of the mother loon is going to raise his hand in front of Allah subhana wa tada and say, Oh Allah, this person did boom, I want my hammock And on that day, every single mother loom will be able to get the help directly from the one who did womb to him and Allah azzawajal being the perfect King will not intervene. So be aware because on that day, the one who has done volume, the one who has done volume shall face the consequences of his history.
And on that day, those who are Muslim will be greedy for every good deed. And so every good deed that I can get and you can get if you have done every good deed that you're able to get from those who have wronged you from those who have slandered you from those who have spoken about you unjustly from those who have mocked and ridiculed you, you will want every single good deed from them. And I guarantee you that on that day, every single one of us will be greedy for good deeds. So we will obtain our help from every single one of those who have done them. And so let those who have done Vern repent to Allah in this world before repentance is of no use. Well, yeah the lithonia holophone
annamaria Toshima fitness and oh you see about my dad, but at the end of March when yo ma pm as our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, beware or Muslim be aware of causing any boom in this world to any other human being. As for the sins between you and Allah, ask for less forgiveness and hope the best of Allah even as you're worried of a less punishment, but inshallah tada those personal sins if you are righteous, if you strive to do good insha Allah those personal sins shall be forgiven by the fall if you repent to him and inshallah we will continue next week with Nila Italia. Until then chisako located on was set on wide economical for he will by casual.
