Mina shavon hongji

00:00:06--> 00:00:08


00:00:13--> 00:00:14


00:00:21--> 00:00:22

We're in

00:00:28--> 00:00:29


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

do you want

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


00:00:55--> 00:01:35

set up Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah, who Allah Allah, He will be here woman where the hummingbird. We are continuing on our beautiful journey of describing gender, how we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to be of the people of gender. And one of the ways that we will be of the people of agenda is one we are eager to get there and change our snap and our good deeds to be of the people of gender. And one of the ways we will change our flock and increase our good deeds is to know what is the reality of gender is to understand what has been promised to us. And once we understand and know then we will be more enthused and energetic and

00:01:35--> 00:02:19

that is why Allah subhana wa tada has described for us, Jenna, we have to realize your brothers and sisters that these descriptions are not just meant for our amusement, they're not just meant to pass the time. Rather, they serve a very, very important Imani function. This is a part of human behavior. And we have no way of knowing Jen except what Allah subhanho wa Taala has described. And therefore when the Quran describes gender, the purpose is that if you have a man, if you have faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala, and you have faith in the unseen, then all of these descriptions will be something that you are certain about. And that's why Allah describes the believers as those who were

00:02:19--> 00:02:58

certain of meeting their Lord, right, they knew that they would meet Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, they knew that they would meet their hisab in 1120, without going to his albia. Right, they know that they're going to return back. So when you have that a man and it is reflected in your actions in your good deeds, it is reflected in your lifestyle, then and only then will inshallah you taste the fruits of gin and ask for those who reject the paradise in hereafter. And they reject Allah subhana wa Tada. And they mock these descriptions, while the Quran also tells us let them mock, let them reject, let them do what they are doing. And Allah xojo will combine us with those who reject

00:02:58--> 00:03:41

and we will see who is going to get the last laugh. As we say in English, we will see who is really going to be successful. In fact, one of the most interesting descriptions in the Quran is that on the Day of Judgment, those that would reject true faith and they would reject the believers that they are described as those who would mock Mr. z in they would mock the believers, and they would wink at them and they would crack jokes at the expense of the believers. And on the Day of Judgment, they are regretting those jokes, and they are regretting all of that slander and that sarcasm that they would have and therefore do Muslim, do not be disheartened when those who don't understand what

00:03:41--> 00:04:23

faith is, and those who think that they are superior, and still do not have an explanation for life and origins of mankind and, and life and death. But they think that believing in a god and believing in Heaven and Hell is somehow superstitious, and yet believing in nothing is somehow not superstitious, and that is somehow more logical and rational. Let them say what they will and let them go by in this life and be quiet and leave the result to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, we will continue in our journey of the descriptions of gender. And in our last lectures I had mentioned, the ambience of agenda, the agenda is going to be eternally and perpetually bright and lightened but

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

without a sun and the light will come from under the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the temperature will be absolutely perfect and the ambience will be pleasant, there shall be a breeze that is incensed with perfume that is going to be blowing in the perfect ambience of gender, and that there will never be any darkness or any night because we don't need darkness and night we're going to be alert. We're going to be vibrant, and we're going to be energetic, and so there is no need for any darkness at night, but there will be plenty of shade even though the light is not going to be from one source like the sun

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

is going to be like an ambience if you like, but still there will be a shade as well, for those who want to recline in the shade and sit down in the shade I mentioned all of these in our, in the last lecture. Now there was one point that was left over today's lecture is actually about the degrees of gender. But there was one interesting point that was leftover from the last time so I'm going to begin with that and then inshallah move on to the issue of the fact that gender has many degrees and ranks and that is a very interesting discussion or an interesting aspect, will gender have creatures will gender have animals in it, and the response is that, in fact, there will be animals in general.

00:05:41--> 00:06:22

And these animals are of two types, right? The first type are going to be that those the the animals, if you like, that will be presented to us as food. Now of course, that is not going to be something that we are seeing is going to be presented. So Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that there's going to be let me play it in my ear stone is that there's going to be delectable meat from the birds and the bird meat. The meat that comes from game it is called an English game is the fancy word for meat of the birds that that meat is the most delectable. It is the softest and Ally's agenda mentions that they shall be given lamb is why you didn't mean NIOSH to own the meat of the

00:06:22--> 00:07:02

birds, whichever bird they want, it will be given to them. And of course, other types of animal food will also be given in a very famous q&a that took place that one of the rabbis of Medina question the Prophet salallahu idea he was selling them a series of questions to test whether he was a true prophet or not. And these questions were questions that the rabbi assumed none would know in the lands of Arabia, because this is something that was given to the knowledge of Musashi, his setup. And one of the questions was, what will be the first food of the people who enter genda? What will be the first food when they enter Jannah? Which will be their food and are processed and answered

00:07:02--> 00:07:42

every single question? And then when he came to this question, that what will be the first food he said the first food item presented the snacks the appetizers that will be presented, it will be z the two kbd roti, it is going to be you feel like the excesses or the the outer layer of the liver of the whale. Now, this is a very interesting Hadith here. And the question arises that is this something that is going to be presented to every single person? Or was the Prophet system simply responding to this yahoodi that from his knowledge that was the first food and that the Prophet system said according to your knowledge, according to what you know, it will be the first food

00:07:42--> 00:08:06

because in reality, one could say that the food of genda will be what you desire, and what you wish and cultures vary and palates vary. And it is possible that this particular civilization because you see our Prophet sallallahu ala he was sending even though he did eat, at least once we know for a fact that he ate to seafood, it is authentically narrated that a group of companions were traveling

00:08:07--> 00:08:46

toward on the shore. On the end, they found a very large whale having been beached up and they were actually starving. They're praying for a miracle. And a lot of xojo responded to the miracle, they were literally starving, and they're making up for any food and they did not have any food. And they're just walking. And all of a sudden the world just beaches itself in front of them, or it dies in front of them. And so they come across this massive whale, and they of course, then carve out the meat and eat from it. And they brought it back to Medina and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ate from that, that will and to the best of my knowledge. This is the only confirmed time that we

00:08:46--> 00:09:24

know that our prophets of the law who I sent him ate seafood. So the question and that that seafood as far as we know, was not the liver of the will. It was the flesh. And so why is this phrase the idea to Capitol Hill? Why is that phrase over there that you know maybe the outer layer or the slithering of the liver of the whale, that's not something that the Arabs really you know, considered to be a delicacy at the time it's not something that they're hunting whales, and then they're finding the the you know, the liver, it could be and Allah knows best it could be that the Prophet system is basically answering this person from his own paradigm because the food agenda will

00:09:24--> 00:10:00

be what you want because Allah says in the Quran will last me for a min NIOSH tahune whichever desire they have, they shall get and so perhaps this culture perhaps this civilization, they had this this notion this maybe even semi mythology because it's not as if this person in in Medina is is regularly eating on the livers of whales either right? Perhaps they have this mythology or this this cultural mythology that, you know, the the like we have in this world in this part of the world in the western lands, we have this issue of caviar, okay, which is basically sturgeons eggs, right? You know, so, for some people, it's really worth it for others. It's just

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

seems to be a big scam, you know, it's just the eggs of a particular type of fish and they sell for, you know, such expensive, you know, notions and prices. And for most of mankind, I would venture for most of mankind, if they were to taste caviar, they would be like, what is this? Why is this worth, you know, 100 $500,000, they would not understand, they would not appreciate it. And those that do they either say it's an acquired taste, or perhaps is just an inner, you know, issue of what they want My point being our process and responding to this question by saying, it is the excess of the liver of a whale, in all likelihood, in all likelihood, it is simply responding to this person from

00:10:39--> 00:11:13

his own paradigm, so that he can check off the list Oh, indeed, the prophet system is a true prophet, because that was what he had in his knowledge, that was his scripture, or his inherited legacy that he knew the first food or the people of jhana. And it is not necessary that that is going to be the first offering for every single person. Because again, Allah says that they have what a home may have shown a few had, they will have whatever they want in it. And for some people, they're not interested in the other of the cabinet of the hood. And they're rather I don't know what to say more so or something like this, you know, they want something of their culture and cuisine,

00:11:13--> 00:11:54

and they're going to get back the best of that, whichever it is. And so we don't have to take this headache, you know, to be that extrapolating to every single civilization and culture. The point being back to our lecture here, the very fact that there's going to be the excess of the liver of the will demonstrates there's going to be different types of meats prepared from different types of animals that will be presented to us now, of course, that's on the one side, on the other side, you will actually have living animals in gender. And we know this from a number of a Hadeeth of them is that is that the man came to the profits of a lot while he was setting them. And he said, O

00:11:54--> 00:12:37

Messenger of Allah, O Messenger of Allah, I am going to and he was holding on to a camel, and he was having the camel tie to arraign and bringing the camel in. He said, O Messenger of Allah, I want to give this camel for the way of Allah subhana wa tada I'm dedicating this camel, you know, to do to South Africa or to you know, an expedition. So you know, what's what I get in return? If I give this to you, right? And you do with it as you please What will I get in return? Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, You shall have in its stead, 700 camels, all of them that are arranged for you. So again, the point being that the camel had a rain and a holster, and the man is holding on to

00:12:37--> 00:13:23

it, and it is subdued. So he has control over that camel. So the Prophet sallallahu it said, I've said, You shall have 700 such camels, all of them subdued unto you. And so this is a man who loved camels, and he wanted Campbell's agenda. And so he got or he will get what he wants, and he shall get 700 camels in under their heads. Sony might have been a burrito reported from his father, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that he came, a man came to the prophets of the La Jolla cinema and said, O Messenger of Allah, I love horses. Will there be horses in general in your head? bullhide I feel genetti Hi, he's asking Yasuda I love horses. I'm a man who loves horses, will I be

00:13:23--> 00:14:11

able to get horses in general. And so the Prophet sallallahu it who was send them said, If Allah causes you to enter agenda, then as soon as you wish to have a horse, you shall have a horse that it is as if it is going to be out of a a pure Ruby or a pure, if you like, you know gold, and it is going to be carrying you wherever you want, it is going to be a flying, you know animal for you. So another man stood up and said, O Messenger of Allah. I actually like Campbell's Are there going to be Campbell's in genda and the Prophet salallahu it who has seldom said that if a law causes you to enter agenda, you shall have whatever you desire, and whatever will give you comfort to your eyes,

00:14:11--> 00:14:51

whatever you desire, you shall have and he basically then let it open that whatever you want, you shall get in genda. So this demonstrates that there shall be animals in general for those that love to have animals and there shall also be animals that are meant for beautification purposes. There's a hadith in Suna Timothy, that to the Prophet Sall, Allahu Allah who was sent I was talking about to co author and we will talk about the COVID and Sheldon or maybe in our next lecture that the Guardian, the rivers of jinn that the Prophet system was talking about to go up. And he mentioned that they're going to be the river co author. It is whiter than milk and it is sweeter than honey

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

and that around the river coauthor, that there's going to be beautiful birds and those birds

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

We'll be flocking around the river, and their necks will be very long and beautiful, that their necks are resembling, according to one narration is like the next of giraffes and other narration has other words to it. But the point being that there's beautiful, large birds that are going around, and you will see them. And again, remember, by the way, birds always I mean, even in our culture, and all cultures really looking at birds and water is something that the chirping of the birds is something that makes us happy, or something that is very comforting to the soul. And so to have beautiful birds around there to see them drinking from that. So whatever the hubbub about the

00:15:36--> 00:16:17

loved one said that those birds are indeed you know, so, so beautiful and majestic. And our Profit System said, Indeed, and those who eat them are going to be even more beautiful, they're going to be even more happy and content. So the point being, that there are going to be animals in general, however, those animals are not the animals that were with us in this world. They're a different category, they are a creation of agenda. They are special animals, not the ones of this world. And we know this because the as we mentioned before, the animals of this world, the actual animals that are with us in this world, they are not going to enter Heaven and Hell, there is no hisab on those

00:16:17--> 00:16:34

animals. On the contrary, while there is a type of his that we mentioned this, that they are going to be resurrected. On the day of judgment. I mentioned this in my series on the Day of Judgment my two series ago. And Allah says in the Quran, what either shirat that when the wild beasts are resurrected,

00:16:35--> 00:17:13

what either Whoa, shoo, shoo, so the wild beasts will be resurrected. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that every animal will have the opportunity to complain about any other animal that harmed it on in this world on the Day of Judgment. So if any animal did something that was unjust, according to the laws of the animals, they have their own internal code that's not related to us, right? They have their own issues amongst themselves. So if any animal was unjust, then it will be allowed to complain to Allah subhana wa, Tada. And the rights are going to be given and then what is going to happen, they shall be turned into dust, they are not going to be resurrected for

00:17:13--> 00:17:55

heaven and hell, they're only resurrected for that day of judgment. And that is why when the one who has destined to go to help, when he sees the other animals crumbling into dust, he will say as the Quran says, Yeah, late and he couldn't tune to Robert, this is a verse in the Quran in surah, a never Amethyst alone, that when the calf who sees these animals crumbling to dust, the coffered will say How I wish that I could be like those animals. So the actual animals that were with us are not going to be transported to the next life of the hereafter. However, whoever once and I got a question, by the way, by a young child, she emailed me and she's like, I have a pet cat, I love this

00:17:55--> 00:18:34

cat, will that have, you know, this cat in general. And you know, I said in response to this, that you shall have the cat of your desire in genda. And that cat will be you know, your, you will love that cat, and you will take care of that cat and it will love you back. And it will be much better obviously, than the cat of this world. But the actual, you know, animal of this dunya is not going to be there's not going to be a hisab that is going to be heaven and help. And so the point being that animal lovers will get animals they shall have their animals in general. And the same goes for people who love Xerox, those who love greenery and they love. They have the Green Thumb. You know,

00:18:34--> 00:18:46

they love to plant and they love to take care of plants, right? People have those passions as well. I will read and I read that a man came to the Prophet sallallahu it he was seldom that

00:18:48--> 00:19:33

boring area that the prophets of the lesson have said excuse me that the Prophet system said he was speaking to the people in the masjid that he said that a man in Jannah asked permission from Allah subhanho wa Taala to start a farm to start produce to start agriculture. So Allah said to him, don't you have all that you need? I mean, why do you need to start a farm? Why do you need to produce anything? So the man says yes, I have everything I need a will law. But I love to farm I love to plant I love to have agriculture. And so Allah subhana wa tada will say, go ahead and plant your seeds. And so every time he will plan to seed, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the

00:19:33--> 00:20:00

seed is going to sprout forth in the best manner and with the greatest fruits, and as tall as the mountains, the most beautiful trees that he can imagine. And it will come instantaneously, you know, without having to wait weeks and months and years. There's no seasonal as he desires it, and he plans it he shall see the fruits of that planting and it will make him happy. And at this there was a man in the audience

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

Who is a Bedouin, there was a man in the audience who has a Bedouin, at this, the Bedouin stood up. And he said, that on messenger of Allah, I am certain that that man, he is either from the orange or from the ansara, not from us, the people of the Bedouin, because we do not like to plant, and it is those people who like to plant so that man you're talking about, he's not one of us, he must be from one of these people over here. And of course, the bedroom was dead serious, like I can't imagine asking to plant anything in genda. And so when the profitsystem heard him say this, so this provoked laughter amongst, in the, in the process and amongst the audience, as well, some of those innocent,

00:20:39--> 00:21:18

you know, times that, you know, a man says something, and he's dead serious about it. And of course, it is something that is humorous to those around. And, you know, this shows us that Subhanallah it's so true. You know, this is the beauty of gender. And I've mentioned this point in my last lessons, and I'll continue to mention this, that, you know, those people who trivialize or maybe even have suffered alone, make fun of you know, these things about gender, what they fail to realize is that Jenna is really the abode of eternal bliss. And first and foremost, as I explained, the descriptions that are given they are at a base level insight, every human being, there is no human being, except

00:21:18--> 00:21:52

that he or she enjoys good food, he or she enjoys good clothes, he or she enjoys, enjoys good companionship, good luxury, you know, intimacy, these are things that are ingrained in every human being. And secondly, these are things that, yes, might be ingrained, but at the same time, if somebody wants something other than this, if somebody wants things that are not explicitly mentioned, and they are within the purview of the permissible desires, then they shall be given this. And these are Heidi's show. Notice here, a man came and said, O Messenger of Allah, I want to have horses, what are the problems, say you shall have horses, another man comes and basically says,

00:21:52--> 00:22:28

oh, in a plant, and the President said, Yes, you'll be able to plant and is going to go, you know, as big as the mountains, etc, etc. You know, I remember, some years ago, I was with, you know, a person who had converted to Islam, and he was doing a PhD and, you know, some of philosophy and whatnot. And, you know, he got to talking about gender. And he said, you know, if I get to gender, you know, what I would want, I want to have, you know, a beautiful library, you know, with millions of books of all types and plenty of time to read. And he started quoting people that he wanted to read, you know, in gender, you know, Derrida and Foucault and, you know, is postmodern this guy,

00:22:28--> 00:23:02

whatever, you know, started laughing. And I said, you know, you know, as for having a beautiful library agenda, believe me, that is also my personal goal as for reading Foucault and Derrida that's yours, I have my own, you know, I have my own list that I that I like to read, but I said, inshallah, you will get that once you get to gender, you shall have your beautiful library, and you shall have all the time in the world to read whatever you want and to contemplate. That's the whole point is that Jenna is left home nyesha una Fie her. And by the way, me personally, as well, neither animals nor agriculture, you know, give me my library and allow me time to read. And that is a type

00:23:02--> 00:23:36

of gender along with, of course, the other pollution of normal human being, and hamdulillah. You know, I definitely want to food and all of that, that's definitely going to be on the plate literally, and metaphorically, but also every people have their own, you know, wishes and desires. And that's the beauty that these are these tell us that whatever you want, you shall get. So even the one who wants agriculture, and he has to plant and whatnot, Allah will say, go ahead and plant and he will plant and the majority of people are not interested in doing that. But he will be given the opportunity to do that. So in the end, realize that gender is the place that every person shall

00:23:36--> 00:24:13

have their desires fulfilled. But of course, as long as those desires are within the purview of that which is permissible, and that which is, you know, understandable and reasonable and logical, there are certain desires that are simply unnatural. And in the next life, even if they exist in this world, in the next life, there simply are not going to be present in the individual. So even if a person was struggling with certain desires in this world, and they're wanting, you know, fulfillment, but they're controlling themselves, they shall be rewarded, and in the next life, those desires are not going to exist for them, and they shall attain happiness, and they shall attain

00:24:13--> 00:24:56

bliss, in the normal desires given to all of mankind. Now, there's one other issue that has raised some controversy of desires of gender. And that is, what if somebody desires a child? What if somebody wants a baby? What if somebody wants to basically start a family? Because see, it's one thing to say that you want a library you got all these books, it's one thing to say you want, you know, camels and horses or whatnot, and that okay, you can understand that. But you see, another human being graces a whole bunch of philosophical and theological questions, right? Is that are you going to procreate to the in the manner of actually having children? I mean, as for intimacy, we

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

will talk about that, of course, there is the pleasure of intimacy and pleasure.

00:25:00--> 00:25:14

of companionship. But does that mean there's going to be children, and those children are then going to be nurtured and grow up? What if somebody wants to have a child in general, in fact, our scholars have discussed this in some detail.

00:25:15--> 00:26:02

In his famous book that I'm most of my lectures are based upon this series is based upon his book, that MLP you mentioned a number of issues in this regard. And he says that some are allama have said that if a person desires to have a child in Jannah, that's a law shall fulfill that desire. And they base this on the head Ethan Timothy, that Oh, sorry, the history says that the Prophet sallallahu it he was sent them said, me know, either say hello to Phil genetic and Hamlet, who what what drew who was in New houfy, Sarah, karma Yeshua, he that if a person desires a child in gender, then the pregnancy and the delivery and the weaning of the child will take place instantaneously, as all of

00:26:02--> 00:26:43

that's going to basically happen instantaneously as he desires as he, you know, once wants it to be, and the this hadith has been graded authentic by a number of scholars, including at Advani and so, based upon this Hadeeth the Hadith clearly says the Mothman if he desires a child in Jannah, so the entire pregnancy and the entire delivery and basically the growing up of the child will take place basically in an instance so all of this all of the the difficult stuff is going to happen very quickly, is it gonna happen instantaneously, and then the child will be there, you know, for him to play with it or nurture to whatever, you know, whatever you know, he wants to start a family.

00:26:43--> 00:27:14

However, other scholars said that, in Jenna, the intimacy that will take place will not result in a child. And this is the position of thought loose and Mujahid and Ibrahim and hi and others any moment Buhari says that it has been narrated from a Buddhist point of it that the prophets of the law of war it he was seldom said that the people have Gena shall not have any children. And this hadith is reported in Imam Ahmed, even though Buhari makes a reference to it, but it is reported

00:27:15--> 00:28:00

in the midst of the remember that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that righteous men and righteous women they will be in Jannah and they will have each other's the pleasures of intimacy as they have in this world, except that they will not have children. So believing men and women will enter into gender and they shall be together and they shall be intimate husbands and wives will be intimate in gender. But the profitsystem said that alera Allah terroir Luda field gender there is no giving birth in gender. And so this hadith seems to indicate there is no giving birth. And another Hadith says when a woman desires a child then he shall get one. So what and the middle column says

00:28:00--> 00:28:48

this headed seems to be authentic however, you know shuddered bunny considered it to be not authentic. So again, this the controversy over which Hadith is taking precedence over another. And it mentions, if not by your mentions, that some of the previous scholars said that the phrasing of the first Hadith indicates what is intended, if a believer desires to have a child, then Allah will give such and such meaning. Hypothetically, theoretically, if somebody desired it, they would be given it but Allah would never allow them alone would never have that emptiness in them that they wanted. So the point of the Hadith is that there's a perfection being said that if somebody desired

00:28:48--> 00:29:31

even a child, then they would even get that but Allah subhana wa tada will make them so happy with what they have, that they shall never desire a child, and this is what Ivanova Ian himself concluded that there are not going to be children born in Ghana, and he mentioned a number of evidences for this first and foremost, he said, the high detail of Buddhism, which is in the Muslim Imam, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the believing men and women will be together in gender and they will enjoy each other in gender, but they shall not have children. So this hadith he said is obviously the most explicit evidence number two that Allah says in the Koran whether home see her as

00:29:31--> 00:29:59

well john moto hora, that they are going to have pure spouses and pure wives in gender moto hora and moto Hara means that they shall never ever have any menstruation or any bleeding. So if they are without any menses, then how are they going to be having children? So point no evidence number two that a lot describes the spouses as being multiple

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

hora, moto hora and mocha hora means they're not going to have the cycle or their periods. Evidence number three is that

00:30:08--> 00:30:49

Allah subhanho wa Taala will also mentioned that the notion of giving birth and having these these, you know, the fluids that comes out, it comes under Mahara as well. So I've been calling him says that it's not just the issue of the hijab, but also the male fluid as well, and also the extremists that happen in your during the time of delivery. All of this, it doesn't make sense for the people of gender to have point number four, he says that it is authentically narrated, in the Hadith in Sahih, Muslim that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and we're going to come to this idea, by the way in another lecture, so I'm just going to mention it briefly, we're going to come

00:30:49--> 00:31:34

back to this that once everybody has entered Jenna, there shall be an empty space left, or there shall be a surplus of spots in gender. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala shall create a new creation and cause them to enter Jannah so that gender becomes fully occupied. Now this hadith is very interesting, it raises a number of interesting questions, we shall come back to this in a future lecture inshallah Tada, right now, this hadith is saying that when everybody finishes entering gender, everything is now over, all the last person of gender was finally entered, there still going to be empty plots, empty spots, what's going to happen to that Allah subhanho wa Taala will create a

00:31:34--> 00:32:13

new creation, and that creation will be asked to enter, and they shall fill up those empty spots. So there's not going to be any spots left. Okay, what has this got to do with our topic of children and gender response? Clearly, if children were being born and raised, and and you know, coming to adulthood, so then the sports would have to be Unlimited, because many families would have children, and those children would grow up, and even if they did not have other children, but if you have an eternity of people, and every few millennia, or however long you want it to have children, so then obviously, the plots of gender would have to be continued to be increased. But this hadith is saying

00:32:13--> 00:32:35

that a time will come when there's only a few spots left, and Allah will create a new creation, and they will take over the remaining spots of gender. And so this shows according to time, that there will not be a perpetually new creation that will require other spots in agenda, point number five MLP m says, and again, by the way, somehow, I have to say here, that

00:32:36--> 00:33:17

some might say that this topic is somewhat frivolous, that, you know, we have, we should just get into gender. And you know what, at some level, you're absolutely right, you're absolutely right, let's worry about getting into gender, and we're going to be happy when we're there. However, at the same time, this issue of having children in general is not as important as a response as it is in methodology. Just look here at no claims, brilliant mind, that I guarantee you that if you were to ask, you know, out of 100, or over 1000 scholars, you're free to ask 999 who haven't read these treatises and whatnot, to figure out this question, that they would be stumped, they wouldn't know

00:33:17--> 00:33:18

what to do. The fact that

00:33:19--> 00:34:00

you know, our mo love data is basically scouring encyclopedic mind, he's scouring the sources, and extracting benefits from verses and a hadith that you don't really think about from that manner. This is where the benefit lies for us is that look at the methodology and look at the, the the minds and how they're working, that they're extrapolating from these texts, benefits that are not something that is apparent to the initial reader. And so this had the youth of the space being filled up with a new creation, and then gender is full, nobody would think you know, when you first read it, that that also has an a bearing or an impact on children being born in gender, but that's

00:34:00--> 00:34:44

the mind of a foreigner by him. Point number five that he mentioned. Point number five that he mentions that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the Quran, when Latina armano What about when Buddha told the man and how can I be him the return sort of poor verse 21, sort of poor verse 21. And again, when you first read this, you would never think that this is something that is that is relevant to the children agenda. Allah says in the Quran, those who do good deeds, and their children follow them in righteousness and good deeds. So the parents were good, and they raised their children upon good, the parents have moved on, the children remained upon good. What does

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

Allah say? And how can I be him the return, we will cause their children to be reunited with them in gender, okay. And the meaning here and again, it will talk about this point in another lecture is that this is abuse.

00:35:00--> 00:35:39

point a very beautiful point here that the people of Jenna will be together with those whom they love. I mean, think about it that you know you are with those whom you love. So you love your parents, you love your children, you love your spouse, you love your, you know, you have this love of people. If you were to get two gentlemen, a lawmaker amongst them? What are the possibilities? What are these statistical possibilities that your family, your spouse, your parents, your children, are at the exact same level based upon their good deeds? That's not gonna it's not mean realistically, right? I mean, imagine, you know, husband and wife, imagine mother and father, you

00:35:39--> 00:36:13

know, son and daughter, imagine that you want to be together as a family? How realistic is it that you scored the exact same, and therefore you got into the exact same level? Clearly, one of you will be higher than the other. If we're all getting there shall have Tada, clearly, they're going to be different levels. Unless saying, Don't worry, I will keep families united, and how can I be him to return home, their children shall be united with them. Now how that happens. We'll talk about inshallah later on. And there's two ways of this happening. We'll talk about that later on in Charlottetown. We don't want to get to that point over here. But the point being, if and I'll tell

00:36:13--> 00:36:56

you him says this is an interesting point, a lot of how know what to Allah clarified that from his generosity, he would put the children of the righteous that were with them in this world, he shall put them with them in the hereafter. Now, if Allah subhanho wa Taala, were to allow other children, he should have mentioned it in this verse as well, that he's going to allow the children of this world and add other children as well. And that would have been something that would bring a calmness to their eyes and a comfort to their soul, that whoever was righteous, we shall give you the family of this world, and even more family in the next world. And of course, the point is that the Quran

00:36:57--> 00:37:38

never mentions extra family when it comes to gender. The Quran never mentions that once you get to gender, the Quran mentions rivers, it mentions food, you know, it mentions, you know, so many things, it does not mention that you're going to have extra families, extra children. And in fact, what it does mention your children of this world, if they were righteous shall be with you. And so there is an indirect indication that you're not going to have extra progeny. And that's what a male claim is deriving from this verse. So this is point number five. And the claim has seven points, beautiful point number six. And again, this is not a logical point here. Point number six is that if

00:37:38--> 00:38:20

we allow children to be born in Jannah, then you have one of two possibilities. Either we allow this without any limit, which is infinity, or we allow it for some and not for others, and you allow a partial, and both of these do not make sense for Jenna, because as for the infinity, so then this means that of course, as we said, gender is already going to be pretty much full up and whatnot. So now we're going to have people continuing more and more and more. And this will go on forever and ever and ever, that doesn't make any sense that you're going to increase the people of gender, and ask for putting conditions on it, and allowing it for some or other and not others or allowing it

00:38:20--> 00:39:01

for one generation or not another, then this seems to be a privilege or something that is going to put a stop to your happiness if it's allowed for some and not for others. And therefore he says it also does not make any sense. And also given the fact that there is no death in Jenna. So then how can you know we allow for an infinity to keep on increasing the number of people in gender because there will never be any death in gender. So it's not as if one generation goes and another generation comes. Therefore, point number six, there is no logical sense to this. And then he says point number seven. The final point that it will tell you mentions is that in Jenna, there is no

00:39:01--> 00:39:50

growth of a person. People do not grow up, they don't become you know different or change rather, we know that they remain at the same age of 33 they remain at that Prime age of 33. And if a child is to be born, and it's going to then grow up, this is not a child of 33 it's not going to be the same age and therefore I am concludes after these seven points, what agenda to lay set down rutina sudhin buildouts ibaka in will hold Leia moto and fee her for your Pomona sallahu wa sallahu Mocambo that Jenna is not the abode of procreation, it is the abode of remaining and eternity No one shall die in Jen so that there is going to be a replacement after him there is no need for replacement. Right. So

00:39:50--> 00:40:00

the point being that, why are children needed that is the children are needed because we do not live forever. And so we need those to take our place. We need to

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

Basically ensure that our line our lineage remains after us, but in Jenna permanency. So there's no need for children. Therefore, nope I am concludes that indeed there is no, there's not going to be any new children in gender. Now after all of that is said, in the end of the day, of course, there's no pain points are very, very solid in the end of the day, I do go back to what we had said that leave this to Allah subhanho wa Taala whoever desires anything that is permissible shall get it. If they desire this, then Allah will grant some way of doing this. And if Allah has willed, they will not desire this. So we should not ponder too deeply about this point, I was more interested in the

00:40:41--> 00:41:20

methodology of extraction, rather than the question itself. Okay, this leads us now to the actual point of today's lecture that I wanted to do, we'll just do this very briefly. Actually, I might come back to this point, if time runs out, we'll come back to this point in our next lecture. And the what I wanted to do today was the well known fact in fact, we all know this, but very few of us know the evidences for it, right? So it's one thing to know, it's another thing to know how you know, okay. Everybody knows that Jenna is have levels in Arabic, this is called Delta jet. Everybody knows this. And it is something that is ingrained in our psyche and conscious Okay, what is the

00:41:20--> 00:42:05

evidence for this? How do we know there are levels of jinn, the response, there are many verses in the Quran, and many a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that indicate the agenda has levels. And in our previous series when I did jahannam, we talked about the levels of jahannam. Now the word in Arabic is interesting that in Arabic, unlike English levels that go up or called one thing and levels that go down are called another thing okay? In our English vernacular, we simply say you know the levels or the degrees and it doesn't matter whether they're going up or down. You have degrees of separation you have levels you know you have footsteps it's all the same. In Arabic,

00:42:05--> 00:42:55

when it's going upwards is called Delta jet. And when is going downwards is called Delta cat with a guff Delta jacked for up and delicate for down. Jenna has Delta jets and we talked about in our last lectures jahannam has Dara cat jahannam has the rock with the calf, and gender has the Rajat with the gene. And there are many evidences for this of them very briefly. You can write these down certain Nisa, verse 95, in 96, that Allah azza wa jal has preferred those who strive in His way over those who sit down with a great reward daraja tim min who among many levels from him, okay and forgiveness and the sort of that and file verse for Allah describes the believers as those who want

00:42:55--> 00:43:35

allies mentioned their hearts tremble. And when the Koran is recited their Eman, goes up and they have to work good in Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah says, their home daraja to interrupt him, those groups of people they have their agenda, they have the highest levels with their Lord, instead of Ramadan verse 163, Allah describes once again another group of believers home daraja tune in the law, those people will have the higher levels with the law, the very fact that Allah says higher levels sudo Baja, verse 75, one me at the moment, but I need a solid hottie for a kilometer Raja to the ruler. Whoever comes to Allah as a believer having done good deeds, that person shall have

00:43:35--> 00:44:16

daraja to the ruler, the highest level. So here we have again, highest levels, the double emphasis data that means levels ruler, the highest of levels. So the total man, Allah subhana wa Taala mentions that there's a higher level when even half a more common OBE genda 10. Then Allah says woman dooney Hema agenda tan that lower than this, there are also two genders. So Allah subhana wa tada expressly mentioned that there's higher levels and that there are lower levels as well. And of course, this is something that is explicitly mentioned, in a number of Hadith double sided Hadith he mentions in the Hadith in Sahih, Bahati that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that in

00:44:16--> 00:45:00

Jannah, the people that are in the highest chambers, the people that are in the highest chambers, they're called the little hoerauf that you shall see them or the people shall see them, like a star is seen in the sky that flickers on and off the farthest of scars, stars in the eastern or Western skies, that the people of Jenna will look up to the people of the hoerauf. Now pause here, which is the hoerauf we will talk about this war as well in another lecture inshallah tada maybe even next lecture that Allah mentions that there's something called hoerauf in gender. Now in our modern Arabic worauf or horrify means an apartment or a room. Okay, this is in our monitoring.

00:45:00--> 00:45:43

Arabic In classical Arabic warfare or what have basically means, you know, a luxury basically an accommodation. Okay? And so Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the term worauf to describe we would say in our English or VIP suite, okay, we say in English basically a five star, whatever it is, or even more than this obviously. And the profitsystem said the people have one level of agenda will see the people of the whole off like you in this world you look up and you see the northern stars you see the southern the stars in the sky, and they're flickering on and off like that they will see them. So the Sahaba said, O Messenger of Allah, those people in the huruf they must be the prophets of

00:45:43--> 00:46:26

Allah right? No, nobody else is going to reach that. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, No, I swear by Allah, those people are people who believed in a law and who followed the messengers, they're not the prophets, the prophets even higher than that. So a righteous person can be in those hoerauf a righteous person can be all the way up there as well. And that's the, the point of those worauf. And we also mentioned in our last two lectures ago, we mentioned that the lowest person of gender, I didn't I had an agenda, the prophet system said, the lowest person of gender will be given this world and 10 times like into it. So again, we have low and we have high in

00:46:26--> 00:47:10

a headache and so high Bahati, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in full generality, Mia to daraja, that in general, there are 100 levels that Allah has prepared for those who strive in His way, and between every level to the next is like between the heavens and the earth. So the distance between us in the heavens, that's as far as we look up, that's between one to two, and then two to three is another than three to four is another. So the Prophet system is saying that in Paradise, there are 100 levels dedicated to those who are striving for the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then he said, therefore, when you ask Allah Subhana, WA Tada, then ask him for further dose, because

00:47:10--> 00:47:55

it is the best of gender, it is the middle of gender, it is the highest of gender, and above the dose is the output of Allah subhana wa Tada. And from through those, all of the rivers sprout forth, and and then most other women, Mohammed, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that in general, there are 100 levels. If all of mankind were to be gathered in any one of them, it would be sufficient for all of them. So then what do you think of 100 of us, right? So this indicates that there are again, each one of these levels, both of these narrations mentioned 100 levels of gender, and in one Hadith intermediate, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that whoever prays

00:47:55--> 00:48:36

these five prayers, and fast the month of Ramadan, has a guarantee from Allah subhanho wa Taala, that he shall be forgiven, regardless of whether he migrates from his land, or he lives in the land where he was born. And so, and in one version, he says, regardless of whether he went to strive or not, meaning if there's no need to strive for the way of Allah, you know, you're just living in the land you were born, then you are fine. So a man said, O Messenger of Allah, shouldn't we go and inform the people that, you know, there's so many places of agenda? So Shouldn't we go and inform the people? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, No, let the people do as they're doing? Because in

00:48:36--> 00:48:46

Jenna, there are 100 levels, between every two levels is between the distance of the heavens and the earth, and the highest level of gender is for those.

00:48:47--> 00:49:32

And above that is the throne of Rahman, and it is the middle of gender. And from those, all of the Guardians of Jen, all of the Surrey rivers of Jenna, spring forth. Okay, now let's pause here, before we move on. I just quoted you two or three Hadith, they all say the agenda has 100 ranks near to the origin. Does this mean it has only 100 ranks? Or does it mean it has more than this? In fact, Jen has much more than just 100. Because you see, this is a common misunderstanding, that when a person reads these Hadith, they think it is exclusivity. On the contrary, what our Prophet system is saying is that out of the many, many, many, many, many ranks, so Jenna, there are 100 that are meant

00:49:32--> 00:49:37

for those who strive in the way of Allah. That's what the first heading says. And the other Hadith he is saying that

00:49:38--> 00:49:59

Jenna has so many levels, there are 100 amongst them, for example, that anyone between the two of them is like the heavens to the earth. He never said there's only 100 he is simply saying there are 100 that have these characteristics. This is similar to the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam where he describes the names of Allah and he says Allah has 99

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

names, and then he describes, you know, some of them so or he says that whoever memorizes them shall enter agenda. And many people misunderstand that a lot only has 99 names. And that as I explained in my other lectures know, Allah subhanho wa Taala has an infinite number of names, however, of them are 99 that are special. So, the same applies here, Jenna has more than 100 levels, how many we actually do not know, and it is probably beyond what our minds can comprehend. And in fact, there are references to this as well. So, of those references is the famous Hadith inside Bahati and others, that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the one who has memorized the Quran,

00:50:45--> 00:51:33

he it will be said to him to enter agenda and to read, as used to recite in this world and to rise up and for every single verse that he rises, he shall rise up one level of jinn. Right now, there are over 6000 verses in the Quran. So how is it possible? Well, yesterday will be Cooley I attend the Raja, for every Ayah he will go up one level or one rack and that is what it is narrated from some of the Sahaba and others it is narrated from them, that they said the levels of Jannah are the same as the number of verses in the Quran, it is narrated from them, the point being 1000s and 1000s, of levels of gender. And therefore Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best it does appear that

00:51:33--> 00:52:15

Jenna has way more than 100 levels, but there are definitely, you know, levels of gender, that you will see them like the stars, and that's between one to the other, what do you think of the ones beyond them. And so every group of people have gender, they will see those above them in the distance, they cannot even imagine way up there. And that keeps on going higher and higher, until Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best, and then you will get to for those either, and that is the highest level of agenda. And in fact, even within for those who we also get the indication that there are names given to the levels of gender, there are names given to the levels of gender. And it

00:52:15--> 00:53:05

seems like perhaps even within a level, there are sub levels, because we can derive them from the level given to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that of course he is infected those saliva Of course he is but in fact within Filipinos There are levels as well. And there is an entire level dedicated to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it is called alwasy law. It is a name it is named that level is named and our Prophet salallahu it who was seldom said that when you hear the more than calling the event, then repeat after him and then send your Salat upon me, because whoever extends his Salat upon me, then Allah azza wa jal will send to 10 blessings upon him. Then when you

00:53:05--> 00:53:58

finish that, ask a law that He grants me I always see the subtle law holy Allah says Allah, because Allah says Allah is listening to this now, Mansehra to infinity genetti it is a men's ILA in gender, that is only given to one person, and I hope that I am that person. Now our Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I hope I am that person. And we say of course he is because there is no one else that is worthy of it to the level that he is. And therefore it is called alpha seed. And it was sila is that which brings us close to Allah subhana wa Tada. And it is called an Waseda because it is the closest to Allah it is right under the throne of Allah, it is the pinnacle of gender itself and it

00:53:58--> 00:54:21

is the height of fifth dose of Allah. Therefore from this, we can sort of even get a hint that the levels of gender have names and these names are known to the people of gender and the highest level within the highest level of fear those is called elwha Sita and that's why when we hear the then we say alohomora behind the doubt it

00:54:22--> 00:55:00

was salatu wa ala t Mohammed and it was c letter well for the leader. So we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give our prophets Assam, Allah sila and as for the for Lila Some say that the fall Lila is also the the vasila and some say the fall Lila here is the knocking of the doors of Jenna and entering gender. The first and some say that for Lila is to hold the flag you know on the Day of Judgment. So multiple interpretations are given. What is the felida the blessing that is mentioned here but there was sila our profit system is explained what it is and it is the highest level of gender and with this we there

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

For conclude that Jen has many, many, many levels, all of them are 100 that are definitely extra special it looks like but it does appear that gender has far more levels than this. And each person is going to get the level depending on what we conclude with this verse, where the coolin daraja tune, Min amidu everyone will get their data based upon what they did. And that's why our prophets of the law, why do you send them said when he said that whoever prays the five prayers, and fast the month of Ramadan has a covenant with Allah, that Allah will cause him to enter agenda. So the man said, O Messenger of Allah, why don't we just go announce, what did he say? Leave, don't make this

00:55:47--> 00:56:30

that common knowledge. Don't make it something spreading. Let people strive more and more. Let not people be lazy. Why? Because in general, are 100 degrees, that if you look at any one of them, it is like you're between the heavens and the earth, meaning you don't want everybody to aim for the lowest. Let people strive. And when they strive harder, and they pray more than the minimum and they give Zakat more and they fast more and they are whatever good deeds they're able to do they do. They will rise higher and higher and higher, and they're going to be happy as they go higher up and therefore Dear Muslim, don't be mediocre. Don't aim merely to pass. Don't aim to be the last person

00:56:30--> 00:56:55

to enter agenda. Aim for the heights of genda aim for the very creme de la creme. Aim for for those that Allah and strive your best to do whatever you can, because really, that is the ultimate victory, the victory of gender. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us for those that are Allah and may grant us the companionship of the Prophet salallahu idea he was setting them in jannatul for those until next time, sidhwani Kumara barakato
