we are now starting our new series and this new series is about to the highest of the boat is off. And of course this is a precursor to say armor and to the knowledge of heaven and hell May Allah grant us gender and protects us from gender. So we're working our way from the signs of judgment date, until the actual diorama and then what will happen after the AMA, but there's going to be a few lectures that are in between, and that in between is called the life of the buzzer. So in these series of lectures, we will discuss what do we know about the life of the buzzer, and the term buzzer is used in the Quran and it is an Arabic word that implies a barrier, a middle, it implies something that is in between two things. And Allah azza wa jal uses the barossa in a physical and in a metaphysical sense, as for the physical and sort of Torah man, Allah subhana wa tada says, Mata JAL bauhinia, Turkey anabaena Huma boza hula Bahia He has sent the two oceans or the two rivers

00:01:29 --> 00:01:33

flowing between these two rivers is what is a bar.

00:01:34 --> 00:02:34

Now this bar is off as a physical body. It's an actual barrier. So we'll get the word What does bars mean? bars off means an actual middle something that separates the two. And by the way, the majority of our odema understood Mara gel bauhinia began as being the Red Sea and the Persian sea or the Gulf if you like. And the bottom up is the Arabian Peninsula. This is the majority interpretation of the scholars of the past. So it is as if Allah saying there's one ocean here one ocean there between the two is the land of ages the land of Makkah and Medina. That is the bottom of that these two oceans can never intermingle. And so this explains to us what is the bazaar the bazaar is something in the middle that allows two things to be distinct, those two things will not interact with one another because of the buffer in the middle. That buffer is called the barossa with this physical barsac let us get to the metaphysical buzzer what is the metaphysical barza Allah subhana wa tada mentions? So

00:02:34 --> 00:03:42

let me note verse 100. This is the only idea in the whole Quran that mentions bozak in the metaphysical. The other barber stuff is the physical that's a physical barrier to oceans. There's about as the only iron in the whole Koran that explicitly references Barboza, as a place between death and karma is Surah Tell me noon verse 100. Allah azza wa jal mentions that after death woman wha he him Battlezone Illa Yomi you by phone in front of them is going to be a bizarre until the Day they are resurrected. This is the only idea in the whole Koran that uses the term bizarre the way that we're gonna use it in this class, which is that interim that buffer between this dunya and the next Junior woman wha him barossa han Isla Yomi you by phone in front of them after their death awaiting them. There shall be a buzzer until the day that they are resurrected. Now, there might only be one explicit reference of bizarre in the Koran, but there are many implied or onic ayat

00:03:42 --> 00:04:54

about something after death and before resurrection. Okay, there are multiple ayat how many scholars have differed? Because we're talking about indirect three, five, some have said 711 verses, and these are all indirect. So we'll discuss maybe three of them right now. There are verses in the Koran that clearly affirm something will happen after death. And before the Yama and this must be the barossa what are some of these verses will mention a number of them. of them is Surah Toba verse 101, surah Toba verse 101. where Allah subhana wa tada mentions that one min min Hello la comida Arabi una una woman, Medina around you there are the Bedouins and the hypocrites even though some of them are in Medina. Some of them are the better ones. They're hypocrites. Allah says sendo vebo Homura teeny fukumura Duna Illa either been alvim so no i vivo honmaru attain we will punish them twice and then we will send them to basically jahannam so now they will home Marula chain

00:04:55 --> 00:04:59

but tada said one time in this dunya

00:05:00 --> 00:05:04

The second time in the cover, and then there will be Johanna.

00:05:05 --> 00:06:10

Did you understand the indirect Reference Center IV, Bahama chain, thermo euro doing either of them? So we're gonna punish them twice, then we will take them to Johanna, what is the punishment twice in this world, they will be humiliated in this world, they will be discarded in this world, they will go through the trials of this world, then there's another punishment. When is this punishment that is before jahannam there must only be one timeframe, and that is the bizarre. So this is a reference indirectly because it's not explicit, but our scholars have derived the bizarre from this. Also, another indirect reference sort of tour, verse 47, sort of a tour, verse 47, where Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the fire of Johanna, he mentioned in the context of sending people to the jahannam and then he says, sudo todo, verse 47, while in La la de Nevada mo either been Duna leka Well, I can knock Pharaoh home lionmoon. But those who have committed voon, and boom here means schicke. Those

00:06:10 --> 00:06:36

who have worship other than a law, they shall also be punished. Remember, the verse before is about Johanna. Then Allah says, but that's not their only punishment. There shall be another punishment that is lesser than Johanna. Well, in the little lady, urban Dune, Alec, they will also have a punishment that is lesser than Johanna. What is lesser than Johanna

00:06:37 --> 00:06:48

is john it is the bizarre and even above said, even above said that he explicitly quoted this verse, and he said this is I will cover

00:06:50 --> 00:07:56

they will have either do an exotic doula Tarik Arabic in Arabic means lesser than that even a buzzer doula dyadic is a reference to a double cover. And so we have another indirect reference to something that will happen after death and before actual tiama. And perhaps the most explicit of the indirect references because there's a direct reference as far as the indirect references there are many but perhaps the most explicit is sudra Hall for when Allah subhanaw taala mentions the father and son of the fit own, right all of you know that. The founder took care of mosa was not the same fit around that then wanted to kill Moosa, that was his son, right as a father, son pair. So the fit around that adopted Moosa, then that fit around dies that fit our own son comes to power and then Moosa becomes a prophet and assent to that fit around so we have the father son fit out the pear fit out. So Allah subhana wa tada mentions in sudo Horford what how could be the pharaoh own? So either

00:07:57 --> 00:09:10

the family of their own meaning the father and son, they shall have a grave punishment. What is that punishment? Listen carefully. And now you are all doing it. They have to do one washy. Yeah. Why? Oh, man, okay. Amati as a futile effort, I wanna Shut up. The fire of hell will be shown to them being close to them, drawn close to them, morning and evening. And now you're all doing it. They will be roasted close by but not directly out about means to show out other means to bring close to so you're all doing it had they will be brought close to jahannam or Johanna will be brought close to them. Morning and evening. Then when Koyama occurs, it will be said enter the fire of hell and be punished the worst punishment. Do you see how explicit This is? Then when qiyamah takes place way over multi Amati credo Allah fit out. So what's happening before kiama they are not entering Johanna. They're not inside Johanna. What is happening Johanna is being shown to them. Jana is being

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

brought close to them. And now you are all doing it who do one washi so Johanna has been demonstrated to the morning and evening. Then one kayama takes place Allah will say caused them to enter Johanna so what was happening before

00:09:25 --> 00:10:00

the buzzer and a double cover. So we find here multiple evidences from the Quran that there's something after death and before cuyama and this is the timeframe known as the barossa. And that's going to be our entire series is basically however many times lessons we have maybe three maybe five we don't have that much knowledge about the buzzer, and all of our knowledge of the boat is of it is from the animal ape. Our minds have nothing to do with the borders of the borders of his from the animal life. Whatever is in the Quran and Sunnah we take it and the bottles off when does it begin and one

00:10:00 --> 00:11:15

does it end, the buzzer begins from the moment the rule permanently leaves the body. And it ends at the last trumpet to be blown. This is the buzzer. Okay, so the bodies of begins when the rule leaves the body permanently. And the bottles are ends when the last trumpet is blown, and all of the souls are resurrected. Now, the bottles off in this dunya, you might think that some people's bodies have is longer than others, but the bottles of is beyond our time in our space. So if somebody died 10,000 years ago, and somebody dies after 1000 2000 is already yours we have left alone knows their bodies off is not necessarily different or more or longer, because time in the bottles of is not the same as time in this dunya. So time for them is something completely different. And we will get to this point for the believer, the bottles will be a place of quick ease, they will zoom through it a place of peace, and for other than them or they are the villa the borders of will seem to last an

00:11:15 --> 00:12:11

eternity. Even if maybe they were of the last generations, they will think they were in an eternity. So the time of the buzzer is irrelevant from our dunya it is a separate timeframe has nothing to do with us. So in order for us to then understand the concept of the buzzer, we need to begin very briefly This isn't a detailed topic on this. But we have to begin today at least half of our lesson will be over the issue of the role and the body and the relationship between the role and the body. Because we're talking about when the role leaves the body that is when buzzer begins. So we have to very briefly go into this issue of the rule and the the just said and we know from the Quran and the Sunnah, and the unanimous consensus of all of our scholars that there is something called a rule inside of us a spirit or a soul inside of us. And of course Allah mentions this in many verses wias aluna, cardinal rule kangaroo, they ask you what is the human soul? What is the ROI, polar Roman

00:12:11 --> 00:12:43

Embraer A B, one, t 2 million me illa kalila, tell them respond to them. The rule is from the matters of Allah from the matters of your Lord from the command or the knowledge of a law. And you have not been given anything of knowledge, except a very, very small amount. Now this ayah, which is sort of Israel is very profound, we will begin our quick conversation on the road with it. We have very little knowledge about the rule because Allah says so

00:12:45 --> 00:12:50

the bunny is rocky they who they wanted to test the prophets of Allah, why do you sell them? They asked him three questions.

00:12:51 --> 00:12:55

One of them go ask the Prophet, they told the chorus go ask him what is the rule?

00:12:56 --> 00:14:00

And they wanted to quiz him. Some lemma say that the quiz was, if he gave a lot of information, this would show that he is able to build a false prophet, because no one has knowledge of the road. So this was the trap. He claims to be a Prophet asked him about the ROI. If he gave a detailed philosophical treatise about the roar, the hood felt this is a fabrication of fraud, because nobody can say anything about oil. So what was the response? they asked you about the rule? Tell them, you have no knowledge of the rule. So he passed the test, you understand, he passed the test, because no one has knowledge about the rule. So we have only a little bit of about the rule as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam sorry, as the Quran tells us about this issue. And I find it very interesting. By the way, I find it very interesting that all civilizations in the globe and all the major faiths without exception, they believed in the concept of the human soul, the ancient Chinese,

00:14:00 --> 00:14:42

the Hindus, the Buddhists, the Christians, the Sikhs, the Muslims, the Abrahamic religions, and even the Greek philosophers Plato and Socrates and they're not even connected to a ye. They have this concept of a rule. The rule is something that Pun intended permeates through all of human civilization. All civilizations affirmed that the soul exists, except for some modern, pseudo scientific people who deny everything they cannot understand. And so they say, there's no such thing as good, right? Because Science cannot prove it. Forget them. Everybody in human civilization, believe there's something called a soul and there's something called a body and we all understand from the Quran and Sunnah and maybe one day Sharla will have a long lecture about this issue of Adam the creation of either

00:14:43 --> 00:14:59

but we all understand what made Adam Adam was the ruler. Before that Adam was clean, then was to rob Adam was claimed. Before the rule, Adam was fashion claim. Allah says in the Koran for either as a way to who want to feed him

00:15:00 --> 00:15:33

bokaro husar gene after I fashion him, then I blow my room into him, then prostrate down to him and the Hadith the prophets are some tells us that when Allah fashioned Adam from clean, he left the body there and he believes came and began looking at this empty vessel and he began knocking on the vessel. And that knocking that is Sol Sol Sol Sol lemon hammer investment Sol Sol Sol Sol is the

00:15:35 --> 00:16:19

pottery clay Potter's clay that has been put into the oven and taken out and then when you hammer it Sol sila Knock Knock like when you say English Knock Knock Sol Salah is the reverberation of the empty clay. This is what sloughed Sana so Allah says we've created man from Sol Sol, Sol Sol when you knock on it, it will reverberate there's going to be an echo. So it believes is doing that to the body of Adam. Adam is not alive yet Adam is just adjusted other missoura sorry, Adam is a clay, salt, salt. And he believes the processes that he believes, entered and exited from this show, entered and exited. And he snorted and said anything that I can enter an exit from I can control

00:16:20 --> 00:17:01

anything that I can come in and out of I can control and he felt he is better than Adam. Now at this stage. Adam is not Adam he simply clay. When did Adam because Adam. The Prophet system tells us that when Allah blew the roof into Adam, he blew from the top down. This we learn from the Hadith is not in the Quran. He blew from the top down. And the rule came from the head on downwards. And when it reached the nostrils of Adam, it tickled the nostrils. What happens when something tickles the nostrils. Adams sneezed.

00:17:03 --> 00:17:12

And by that time the rule is reaching the mouth, he sneezes and so even before the roar is going to the body,

00:17:13 --> 00:17:42

them unconsciously not unconsciously sorry, subconsciously, without even having been taught anything explicitly. Them says Alhamdulillah and this is a very profound reality that one day we will elaborate and deconstruct and talk more about the implications of this very profound, without anyone saying anything to Adam. Adam says Alhamdulillah Where did he get it from? It comes from the fitrah. So Adam says Alhamdulillah

00:17:43 --> 00:17:49

and Allah azza wa jal responds, how do you respond when somebody says in Hamdulillah,

00:17:50 --> 00:18:05

your hammock Allah. So the first phrase that our Lord said to the first man, and this is again, very powerful. What was the first phrase that Allah said to the first man, he are homolka law? Yeah.

00:18:06 --> 00:19:11

And this is the default what I meant he was charged Kula Shea, the first thing that our Lord said to our father, even before the war entered the whole body, your hammock, Allaha. Adam, and the process of said the rule continue to go down until it reached the hands of Adam, before it got to his foot. Adam tried to get up, but he couldn't. Because the rule has not yet reached down there. Adams already trying to get up. And a lot as Virgil said, Who do you call in saddleman? agile? How hasty is Matt, just wait, how hasty is Matt, you have no patience. Holika instrument agile, and this is a verse in the Quran, right? What kind of Samurai jeweler and whatnot. So this is something there as well in the Quran. Now, the point being, that this concept of the the rule being blown into Adam, this is something that unfortunately, some innocent Muslims show that they're not sinister, there are no scholar believes this have misunderstood and they believe and this is a wrong belief, don't

00:19:11 --> 00:19:22

misunderstand me This is a wrong belief that no scholar has ever said. They believe that this rule that was blown into Adam is essentially a part of a law or divine.

00:19:23 --> 00:20:00

When Allah says that he will blow his rule into Adam, faith as a way to talk to free him in rule E. Allah is saying to the angels, when I blow my rule into Adam, okay, some have misunderstood and they believe incorrectly, that the rule is a spark of divinity. The rule is somehow divine and that there is an element out of a little bit of divinity and all of us and you hear this amongst the New Age spiritualists, you hear this amongst people that

00:20:00 --> 00:20:59

They follow interpretations of religions other than mainstream Judaism, Christianity and Islam. And this goes back to an ancient religion called Gnosticism, G and o STI C is agnosticism. And the Gnostics they were one of the earliest groups of very ancient, like 4000 years old, 3000 years old. And they believed literally, that their god, that's their version disintegrated into a gazillion bits. And each human being captured a little bit of the spark of the divinity. And you hear this phrase among some non Muslim New Age spiritualist. Oh, there's a spark of divine in all of us, right. You know, you've heard this phrase, right. There's an element of God and all of you. Where is this coming from? It's coming from Gnosticism. Right. And unfortunately, some Muslims know they've heard it maybe from Gnostics or whatnot. They read the verse in the Quran, they don't understand. And they say, Oh, so Allah is saying he blew his roots into Adam, and they don't understand a lot.

00:20:59 --> 00:21:21

So Virgil created a rule. And that rule was blown into Adam, the rule is not Allah with a bill Adam does not have or with a bill that divinity Adam is Moloch the rule has broke the rule has not heard. The road is not the created entity, right? And Allah azza wa jal ascribes things to himself, as a matter of honor.

00:21:23 --> 00:22:30

When Allah says, his house, the house is created the Kaaba. When Allah says his messenger, the messenger is created, not not the Creator, when Allah says, Now cultural law he was so clear how the camel of Allah because the camel of Sana right now cultural law, the camel of Allah, Allah calls the NACA is NACA, obviously the NACA is is it created a creator, what is it now, it is created, right of course, it is created, anytime, a lot, ascribe something to himself. And it is a physical object. realize this is an inscription of honor. Allah wants to honor this object by saying this is mine, my abuela mahkamah Abu la Myra su rasulillah, my house my camel my room. It doesn't mean to be like that. A bit of Allah entered Adam. Oh, the villa. No Muslim scholar says this is just a misunderstanding that some Muslims they have taken from Gnostics and they believe. Understand when Allah says I blew my role into Adam, he is saying he created something very amazing. And it's so

00:22:30 --> 00:23:40

amazing. Allah says this is mine, Midori, you understand, right? The role is created. It is not a part of a law. And it is an amazing creation. It is a blessing creation. It is a creation, we will never understand. So Allah says, This is my creation, this is my role. So then Allah says when he blew my one when I blow my room into Adam, so Adams rule was created directly by Allah. And that's why Allah says in the Quran, that polio row min Emery Robbie, Adams ro, Allah created it. And as an honor to Adam, a large surgeon, in a way we will never understand we don't think about these things, he blew the roof directly into Adam, the roof is created, the body is created, Adam is created understand this right? A lot in a way we will never understand nefa Allah blew into Adam and Adam becomes the human being J. Now how about the children of Adam and their role? Where does our rule come from? From this we learn? Where does this come from? We learn this from the Quran and from the

00:23:40 --> 00:24:44

Sunnah. There's only one reference indirectly in the hold on and the Sunnah has a lot of references. As for the Koran, students are off verse 172, is the only detail that we have on this issue of where we were created, our role was created and the Hadeeth mentors there's three or four Hadith that mentioned this narrative, what is sort of our offers 172 Allah says in the hold on wait darbuka min Benny adema min for holding him leury yetta home. Remember, remember, whenever Allah says what is it means remember, recall, recall what is a hug or a book. Remember the Adam In Memoriam remember when Allah subhanho wa Taala took from the children of Adam from their backs, that he took their progeny and we had the home either unfussy him, he caused them to be witnesses against themselves. They took the doc the witness and and they witnessed they testified against themselves. Now the verse needs to be understood in light of the Hadith gives us the fuller picture. What happens the Hadees tells us

00:24:44 --> 00:25:00

and I'm going to summarize three or four Hadith there's these had either inside a Muslim and most other covered hacking and an A widow. There's a reference as well. You put all of these heads together. What I'm saying is that conglomeration of a number of had the we learned from the Hadith as follows that when Adam came down to this earth

00:25:01 --> 00:25:53

And Alonzo just accepted his repentance. We learned from our seal literature that this acceptance took place in artifacts. This is not a Hadith, it's the see literature. And this makes sense because our thought is where Toba is accepted from the Hajaj. So Allah accepted the Toba of Adam at alpha this is remember, it's not heavy. So what I'm very, you will learn this about me I'm very active. I try to be accurate. I don't just mention things like this. Whenever I say something, I always try to back Where'd I get this from? And if I never if I don't say this always asked me. Where'd you get it from? We have to be very clear here. Our religion is based on the evidences and the sources. We don't just, we don't just spout things out. And we differentiate between the Koran and between Hadith and between statements of the Sahaba. And between statements of earlier scholars, we differentiate between them not all on the same level. Where do we get this idea that Adam Stobo was

00:25:53 --> 00:26:18

accepted that out of fat, we find it in early tipsy literature, some of the tab your own set this it is not in the Quran, it is not in the Sunnah, so we can narrate it. But it's not something that is yaqeen. Early scholars of the second generation they held this view that Adam Stobo was accepted in out of fat, and we say it makes sense. Now, one thing we know for sure, from the Hadith, and now we come to the Hadith.

00:26:20 --> 00:26:33

Once Adam still was accepted, the Hadith says this is from the Hadith is from the Prophet system. And this idea ism was that they're called hacking. Allah subhanho wa Taala robbed the backbone of Adam.

00:26:35 --> 00:27:31

And from the backbone of Adam, he extracted every single soul that would be in existence until the AMA. Now this is very important now, because this is our origin and birth. This is where we come into existence as our souls. Where was Adam soul created up there? Who created it a lot directly created it from there, from what we have no idea, no idea, which is something beyond where was our soul created? In this earth it was created from what from the backbone and we can say from the soul of Adam, okay. And this is what the Quran is mentioning, with a Hydra book, and many other men will vote for him the return from the, the whole from the backbone from the soldier in the Hadith uses the word man of slapping him, right, the solid, and

00:27:33 --> 00:28:18

membranous will be with Tara right mama and Daffy Automator will be with her What is soul soul is the backbone. So the Hadith mentions Allah extracted from the backbone, and from the soul, whatever you want to call that every single soul that would ever be born until the AMA. And this happened at artifacts. So when I'm at the artifact that I'm doing with my group, I always say, we were born in out of fats. And there's truth to the statement, we were born out of fat, our spiritual birth, our physical birth, where our mothers gave birth to us, but our ruler was born in our fat, this is in the Hadith, okay, so, Allah azza wa jal created our rule from Adam directly.

00:28:19 --> 00:28:20

And this rule

00:28:21 --> 00:28:33

existed without a body there is no body obviously, this is the beginning of our rule and the rule then, the Quran tells us that a shudder whom Allah and forsake him

00:28:35 --> 00:28:47

he caused these are why to witness against themselves. You see in our Constitution, we have something called the fifth what is the fifth

00:28:49 --> 00:28:50

hmm

00:28:52 --> 00:28:55

you you have the right to not testify against you.

00:28:56 --> 00:28:58

You have the right to be quiet.

00:28:59 --> 00:29:02

But on judgment day, and right now.

00:29:03 --> 00:29:23

There is no fifth on judgment day Alo will nothing wider for him were to Kelly Muna ad him with a shadow or Judo home Bheema can react simple, there is no fifth your body will testify the good and the bad. We are scholars alfia and when we were created, there is no fifth

00:29:24 --> 00:29:34

and Allah speaks directly to the souls and what was the question it in the in the Koran unless to be or become?

00:29:35 --> 00:29:59

And this is called yo me aleste The day of Am I not? Yo me ls it is also called the day of the Mita because what a horrible company either me or him to return. This is the metok and the prophets have said a HUD Allahu xojo and mytho mean, many other of the processes took the mythique from the children of Adam at our fat so the word metok is used. What is mythique

00:30:00 --> 00:30:09

mythique has a covenant a treaty. So what was the treaty? What was the covenant? What was the conditions of the treaty? Very simple. Don't you know I am Europe?

00:30:11 --> 00:30:51

Don't you know I am your rump. And again, this is so powerful, because Allah didn't say, I am your Rob. He said, Don't you know I am your Rob? Am I not your Rob? What is the difference between saying, I am your Rob versus saying, Am I not your Rob? The first is a teaching mechanism. The first you say to somebody who doesn't know anything, the first you say to somebody on a blank slate, you tell him this is your God, this is your profit. This is your Koran you are teaching. The second is a rhetorical question which you do not say, to teach you say,

00:30:54 --> 00:31:11

to confirm something that is already known. Right? To confirm. a rhetorical question is not used to teach. a rhetorical question is used to confirm something already known. Allah did not need to teach us that He is our Lord.

00:31:13 --> 00:31:42

Do you understand this? A very deep point. A lot did not need to teach us who created you? Who is your Lord? Allah didn't need to do that. A lot is simply affirming. Am I not your Lord? And what did we all respond? The Quran says, Bella, yes, Oh Allah, You are our Lord. Yes, we affirm you our artwork. Now, how did we know a lot and now at this point in time at this point in time, we are souls question. Have these souls have been sent a profit Yes or no?

00:31:45 --> 00:32:55

No. Have these souls been sent? Why are on Jupiter todos the board? No. Have these souls had a chance to even you have an uncle and wander in this earth and look at the eyes of Allah? No. So how are the souls expected to know when there is no way? There is no revelation, there is no profit. There is no data to the board. How are they expected to know response? The fifth row that Allah created the soul with the fifth row is something that is ingrained in us frittata liability for NASA Allah. So the souls were scattered in front of Allah. How do we know this the heady for neath out our home beignet a day, the prophet system said he scattered all of these souls in front of him a lot scattered all of these souls. Adam is there all of us are behind Adam. This is happening in our facts. How many souls every single one, we were there, our forefathers were there, our children were there, every one that will ever live and breathe, even one breath was there. All of us were there.

00:32:56 --> 00:33:01

And He then took the covenant, this is the mythique Okay.

00:33:02 --> 00:33:05

This is the creation of our soul.

00:33:06 --> 00:33:37

This soul, it remains in a state that we don't have any idea about we have no idea where it is. Nothing is mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah until the next reference. And that next reference had the disciple hidesign Muslim, the additive inverse route, that Allah subhana wa tada yajima basically, he co regulates the creation of the fetus inside of the womb of the mother, until finally, a certain number of days pass, then the angel comes with the roar.

00:33:38 --> 00:33:44

And the angel blows the roar into the fetus, who blew the roar into Adam?

00:33:45 --> 00:33:48

Elias xojo, who will blow the roar into us.

00:33:49 --> 00:34:11

Me and you and our children and our forefathers, the angel, big difference Allah gave Adam, what are the Quran never gave any honored Adam in some ways. And the angel comes, the angel blows the roof into the fetus. And that is when the fetus takes on a living status. Now, our scholars of

00:34:12 --> 00:34:59

our scholars have fifth go into a lot of detail when this occurs, because there are repercussions that have to do with when and under what circumstances is the Islamic verdict of abortion, which is much more complicated than, than right now. That's a filthy discussion. But it all centers over when the row is blown in. Because that's when this entity becomes a living human being. And when that happens, then to take that life is murder. And before that happens, there's controversy so I'm not going down there. Maybe one day we'll have a q&a, but that's a separate issue altogether. But the point being that this is the second stage so there are five stages, by the way of the rule very quickly go over them. Number one, the first stage from the creation until before the fetus

00:35:00 --> 00:35:36

We have no information about nothing from the organism. Where is it? Who is protecting it? How is it living, zero information, nothing. The second stage when the rule is blown into the fetus, and it remains in the body. And this is essentially what we are right now. And we can call this the wakeful state, the state of the child or the young man or the old man when they are awake. And this is the body and the soul are together and combined in one and the both of them are conscious. This is the wakeful state. And this is what

00:35:37 --> 00:35:53

I hope all of us are in right now inshallah, I hope none of us are in the third, which is the sleeping state, right? Anybody in the sleeping state could raise their hand, and that's the problem. The third is the sleeping state, and the sleeping state, the rule leaves the body,

00:35:55 --> 00:35:56

but not permanently.

00:35:57 --> 00:36:57

The rule leaves the body but not permanently. And there is some connection that the rule has with the body. What that connection is, we really don't know. But there is some connection. Ivanova, you mentioned in his GitHub, a row and others mentioned this as well, that there seems to be some type of thread connection like a miniscule invisible thread between the body and the role, that the row and the body are still somehow this isn't an actual thread you cannot cut it with. It's a metaphysical threads, a thread that is from the real world, not from the body world, and the rule and the body are connected. And that's why when something happens to the body, the rule rushes back and you just wake up what what happened. Like it comes back immediately, you wake up with a jolt, right, so the rule is coming back immediately. So the issue of the rule separating from the body during sleep is something that is explicit in the Koran and in the Sunnah. This is something very

00:36:57 --> 00:37:13

clear, and it is a part of our theology to believe. What is Sleep, sleep is the temporary separation of the room from the body. And of course, there is the famous verse in the Koran that mentions this which verses this Oh, your father, your half brother, where are the which words am I talking about?

00:37:15 --> 00:37:16

Which one where is it?

00:37:19 --> 00:37:54

Yes, very good. So that the zoom are very good. Allah says in the Quran, Allah huya tawaf enforcer hain mot her one Lottie Lampton with FEMA naamyaa Allah takes two souls. Allah takes two souls two categories. Number one, when the souls die, allow you to fall and first right when they die. Number two, well let's see lamb Timothy Minami ha, and those that are not dead but they're asleep. So Allah is explicitly saying, I take the souls of those who are sleeping.

00:37:56 --> 00:38:50

So sleeping, Allah takes the soul away. But it is a temporary taking away. The butters doesn't begin there. The buzzer begins when the connection breaks between the body and the soul. And that's why our profit system also said for example, he said, and no more a hole and motors authentic ID three words are no more a hotel mode, sleeping is the brother of death. Sleeping and death are twins sleeping and death are very similar. And that is why it's very common for people to pass away in sleep. Because Allah says for him, suka did the other other hand mote those whom Allah has decreed will die in their sleep. Allah says he keeps the soul will use siddell O'Hara and the others he sends them back until their time will come. This is all in the Koran. And that's why it's very common. One of the most common ways of dying is a peaceful death. When you go to sleep, and you just pass away, you don't wake up. This is mentioned in the Koran. So this person has soul went to sleep,

00:38:50 --> 00:39:46

then the soul is taken away, and then death occurs. So this is the third state right? So memorize this, this is something that we should all know number one, pre birth number two, and this begins in the wombs of our mother and that is the relationship we have right now. Because by the way, modern science has shown even the fetus is awakened asleep. Even in the womb of your mother, there are states when you're awake, and there are states when you're asleep Subhan Allah This is how the Hulk will love that even that preborn child right, the child inside the womb of the mother is already awake and asleep. And then when the child comes out and we are now that stage is the same in terms of the relationship between the body and the soul. So the second we said is the wakeful state, the third is the sleep state and because sleeping is the brother of death, there shall be no sleep in genda or agenda. There is no need to sleep because there is no death. You will perpetually be awake

00:39:46 --> 00:39:48

without caffeine can you believe

00:39:49 --> 00:39:54

also you can drink caffeine if you want to show a low dollar because some of us whatever you want to engender, you will get

00:39:56 --> 00:40:00

anything hell and caffeine is valid. So where am I going to

00:40:00 --> 00:40:02

Hello, how did that tension come along?

00:40:03 --> 00:40:05

What was I saying? My mind is completely blank.

00:40:06 --> 00:40:22

That Yeah, so there is no sleeping genda Why is there no sleep agenda, because sleep is what the taking of the body out of the soul. And that's not going to happen in gender. So there is no sleep engineer, you're never going to get tired in gender. That's the third state. The fourth state is what we're going to talk about in our series, and that is the bar.

00:40:23 --> 00:40:34

And the bar reserve is this timeframe, when the rule and the judge said break the connection, when the rule and the Justice break the connection. And

00:40:35 --> 00:41:26

that rule then goes into this zone called the buzzer. And then the fifth state comes. And the fifth state is when the final trumpet is blown, not the first trumpet. The final one, some might say three trumpet, some analysts say four trumpets. Some elements, say two trumpets. We'll talk about the issue of trumpets when we get there after the buzzer. The very first lesson after the model is off, we'll be talking about the number of trumpets and the scholars difference of opinion over that. But the point is the buzzer last until the last trumpet not until the first trumpet. When the first trumpet is blown. The first trumpet is for this dunya not for the people of the borders of the people or the borders of have nothing to do with that first trumpet, the second or the third or the fourth, depending on how many trumpets you have from Sharla we're gonna jump the gun here. I will say the correct opinion insha Allah from the corner soon it seems to be two trumpets. Many of them I

00:41:26 --> 00:41:56

said three, many of them are even some of them I even said four but to the position I will advocate and Allah knows best will be two trumpets, and the borders of last until the second of the two trumpets, then the fifth stage begins. And that is the final stage. And what stage is that? The permanent reuniting of the rule with the just said in the next world? So the adjusted is not the adjuster that this dunya flesh and bones it's a different type of justice. Here what about the aldehyde or the was somehow it's a different

00:41:57 --> 00:42:29

creation of a law, not this creation, not this world that we live in it is a different world. And when that reuniting occurs, that is going to be the permanent reuniting and the most perfect reuniting that overshadows all previous four stages. And that is why there is no moat there is no sleeping there is no tiredness, there is no negative issues. Once that happens and the root and adjusted are fully reconnected our series of lectures we'll deal with category number four, and that is the issue of the buzzer.

00:42:31 --> 00:42:43

One final Hadeeth inshallah, and then we'll open the floor for questions. And that is, there's one Hadith that some scholars have interpreted to mean the pre voters of era.

00:42:45 --> 00:42:54

And that is the Hadith in Sahih Bukhari that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, are wha Hoo junoon mo Jen nada.

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

Allahu Juno, Don McGann netta. The souls are

00:43:01 --> 00:43:06

like groups of armies or battalions of armies lined up

00:43:07 --> 00:43:29

for my two out of 10, a former Santa Clara Minh, tellef Road body. So the souls that know one another to out of out of out of America, the souls that know one another, the souls that have might differ with one another enough, they become friends

00:43:30 --> 00:43:40

wema Xr Cara Minh, and the souls that there's nakara, there's not getting along, there's something that instead of they have to laugh.

00:43:41 --> 00:43:52

This is one of those headings that we'll have to try to understand the best we can because it's a very deep Hadith and scholars have interpreted in different ways. Some of them have said

00:43:53 --> 00:44:36

that, let's just understand this hadith as being from this dunya, not pre dunya, this dunya. And that some souls get along with other souls, and when the soul gets along with the other soul, the two bodies get along, and they become friends. And life is good. And some souls don't get along with other souls. And when that happens, they're not friends, they're enemies. And that's a valid interpretation. Okay. However, a number of Roma even has them amongst them. And before Bobby might have mentioned this, even Hajin mentioned some discussion about this as well. They go even deeper than this, this is very profound and Allah knows best. And they say, perhaps in this world before this world,

00:44:37 --> 00:44:43

when the souls were all together, some souls became friendly with one another.

00:44:44 --> 00:44:46

And when they find themselves in this dunya,

00:44:47 --> 00:44:56

automatically, they become friendly in this dunya as well, because they were friendly in there as well. And some souls didn't get along over there.

00:44:57 --> 00:45:00

And so in this dunya as well, when they

00:45:00 --> 00:45:03

Discover one another, they don't get a look. Okay?

00:45:04 --> 00:46:08

A lot while it's even hazards interpretation and it's the the wording allows for this interpretation that are wha Hoo junoon Woojin netta fermata out of terra firma Tanaka minha tele reported by behati and Allah knows best this seems to be the understanding of some of the Sahaba because there is a version of this hadith and Muslim Abuja Allah that are a shuttle de la whiner. It was reported in her time from after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that there was a lady from Makkah, who was known to be like we would call her like a joker, you know, always cracking jokes, a practical prankster, something like this, right? She was known for this always cracking jokes and being you know, that type of person. When she came to Medina, the lady that she became best friends with happened to be the one who did the same in Medina. Okay, they said that she had the reputation of always cracking jokes and being the prankster and whatnot. So when this news reached out, Isha,

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

she said,

00:46:11 --> 00:46:20

My beloved has spoken the truth sadhaka hippie, my beloved, meaning the prophets, ism has spoken the truth. Then she narrated this hadith.

00:46:22 --> 00:47:07

So the context was what? These two people did not know one another. But as soon as they met, they became best friends. How did this happen? Their souls had a connection before their bodies met. And therefore when they met for the first time, they became close friends. And so Pamela, I have to say, well, light, it's so amazing, that sometimes you meet a person for the first time. And within a 10 1520 minute conversation, you know, or this person, I will get along with very well, he's gonna be good brother or sister me sisters. Oh, this is a sister, I can be her confident I can be a good friend to her. And sometimes you will meet somebody for 1020 times. And yeah, so Okay, so now while it was said, I'm good enough.

00:47:08 --> 00:47:59

How, how do you know instantaneously, this hadith tells us there's something that is beyond. And that is something that the souls go back to. So to conclude today's lesson, inshallah, so I'm going to try to finish off every day, around 930 and overflow for over a q&a shot. I don't want to I don't want to go too long, because I know it's a workday. So to conclude, we began today talking about the buzzer and when it begins, and in order to understand that we needed to talk about the five categories of the relationship between the body and the soul, and this is something that all of us should know. And so we'll go into a little bit of detail about these five categories, and the borders is the fourth of these five categories. And that's what we will be discussing from next Wednesday, inshallah we will begin our discussion of exactly when the body leaves the soul, which is called death. We'll talk a little bit about what we know about the reality of death and then move on

00:47:59 --> 00:48:06

to what is going to happen after death. And with that, he shall have there any questions 10 minutes of q&a, inshallah. Bismillah is going to say no, there's good.

00:48:11 --> 00:48:24

Our brothers says, What is the neffs? Because Allah mentions the knifes and the ruler and adjusted and the relationship between the knifes and the rule.

00:48:25 --> 00:48:32

You know what, I will discuss it next week even though what it is I will add it for just because you asked it, I will inshallah begin a little bit about the no problem. Michelle, you had a question.

00:48:43 --> 00:48:54

So our brother says that in judgment day, they will be heaven in hell, there will be hisab What is the purpose of the reserve, when the piano will take place and having

00:48:56 --> 00:48:58

why the punishment is in Buddhism.

00:49:00 --> 00:49:13

We'll discuss this in detail in two weeks. But now I will just say, the prophets Allah sent him said that the hubber is the first station of the many stations of the era.

00:49:15 --> 00:49:29

And if the beginning station is good, the rest will be good. And if the beginning station is not good, the rest will not be good. So the cover is the precursor to what's going to happen afterwards. And

00:49:30 --> 00:49:47

the one who has a good experience and the cover May Allah make us amongst them. We want our covers to be vast. When our job is to be enlightened. We want our published to show us our place in gender and want to be wanting to go to gender, whoever gets that inshallah the rest will be easy.

00:49:48 --> 00:49:55

The opposite can be one of two categories. Either a person like the family affair

00:49:56 --> 00:50:00

that that bothers off is the

00:50:00 --> 00:50:27

First punishment, to torture them even more in Jannah. So that is the torture, that is the pre torture of the real torture. And that too is torture and they deserve it. Or it is a third category. Meaning the first is the people agenda. The second is the evil people of jahannam The third is a category they potentially deserve jahannam

00:50:28 --> 00:50:42

but Allah will end up forgiving them because of some good deeds they have done. And that forgiveness will come with some torture, that is not as bad as the torture of gender.

00:50:43 --> 00:50:51

And therefore there will be Muslims believers in Allah who fell short of the waje bites

00:50:52 --> 00:50:55

and they might be punished in the cover

00:50:56 --> 00:51:12

and they think they're going to be punished in Johanna because they deserve that punishment. But because of good deeds, they have done a low we'll forgive them on the hisab but they needed to go through the punishment of the cover to get there and we'll discuss this more in detail inshallah. Sisters Yes, questions. Yes.

00:51:16 --> 00:51:17

What What sister for is good.

00:51:27 --> 00:51:44

So our sister asks that, do we as Muslims have any belief about what is called near death experiences? And the responses to the best of my knowledge, there is nothing explicit in the Quran and Sunnah that would affirm this. On the contrary, on the contrary,

00:51:45 --> 00:52:53

this would go against the notion of the medical most being sent by a law, when the time comes, what we believe angels don't make mistakes. What we believe that nobody is going to see the Angel of Death other than the prophets, the prophets are the only ones that get the choice. We know this from the Angel of Death asks permission, May I take your soul out of Adam, and every prophet says yes, except for most of the struggle come to in shall law, that he didn't recognize the medical mode. But the only one who gets asked is the prophets. As for the rest of mankind, if you read this genre, this genre is about people who say, Oh, I saw a white light, I saw a peaceful entity, and then I woke up. And the interpretation they have they saw God, or they saw the angel, or they saw the angel of death. And then the angel changed his mind or God said, Oh, not yet, you have time you have left to go back. It's as if the angel changed his mind, or Allah made a mistake, when we don't believe

00:52:53 --> 00:53:06

this. So while I cannot categorically state anything hundred percent, because it's not in the Koran, as soon I would say, an Allah knows best that it doesn't appear to be a valid

00:53:07 --> 00:53:39

category, that a person sees the error, and then is brought back to this dunya. Because that's a type of death that is not death. And that is seeing the angel of death before death. And we don't believe this. It doesn't make sense. So the only other interpretation is that this is the imagination of the one who is seeing it, we're not doubting their sincerity. This is the imagination of that person. And that's something that is totally valid. The person can imagine building himself up to the state of Allah knows best. Okay, Other questions? Yes, go to the back brotherhood.

00:53:49 --> 00:54:00

How do we explain dreams. So dreams are three categories. Dreams are of three categories. And all three of them are somehow related to the soul.

00:54:01 --> 00:54:59

Even Okay, among others, they affirm this one category is the souls itself interactions and play things that it does. So the soul might meet somebody. And that might be a deceased person or might be somebody else and you dream about that. And you have actually met that person in the soul world, right? You have actually met and you dream about it. So the soul is interacting. And you are having a dream about the interaction of the soul. This is one category. Another category is the evil shell theme interacting with your soul. And the evil Shelton interacting with your soul is a type of nightmare. And so any nightmare that we have, or anything of a far harsher or lewd nature that we see two categories of interactions. Whenever an evil entity interacts, either it is something to terrify you or it is something of a

00:55:00 --> 00:55:36

Phylicia nature and a person is not sinful for what they see in the dream, but it is shaped on teasing you it is shed on trying to incite you. And whatever it incites in the dream we are forgiven and whatever happens, and if we wake up we have taken also we are forgiven. There's no sin in that. But it is something the shape on does this is the second category. One can say there is the third category, which is a type of enhanced from a law which is a dream from a law. So a lot of xojo inspires the soul, not an inspiration of the prophets, because there's categories of inspiration, and the lowest category is in ham, and in ham is something that Allah gives to even the animals while heinola

00:55:38 --> 00:56:01

the novel, though, well, how to book the novel. So, there is a way that even the angels have sorry, not the angels, even the animals have and the mother of Moosa had it and all of us might have just called in ham, that is a dream from a law. Then you have the fourth category and that is headed for knifes. And heady for knifes is the soul.

00:56:03 --> 00:56:26

We call it daydreaming but it is not daydreaming, it is night dreaming. When you Daydream you are awake and you Daydream, when your soul daydreams that is most of your average dreams that you have. So you want a fancy car you're wanting the car for many many weeks or months right what was the car you wanted? Again? The may back right so he wants the Maybach 1.3 million How much is it? So

00:56:27 --> 00:56:52

he's already wanting it. How do you have your first job yet or not? So still $10 now you'll get as soon as Hello Don't worry, keep on saving. And it's good you started at 10 I started at $4 an hour Subhan Allah thank colo the minimum wage has been raised still you want them a buck you want them maybe you make do offer them a back you go to sleep you dream of them a back. Sorry to break your bubble. This is not from a lot as the widget most likely This is from you. How do you know it is from you?

00:56:53 --> 00:56:59

Generally speaking, when you dream about what you are always thinking about this is from you.

00:57:00 --> 00:57:33

Okay, how do you know from shape on either something that terrifies you or something of that nature? How do you know it is from a law? It is something that is vivid and clear and comes out of the blue? You don't understand it's usually symbolic. Like what was that dream about? Or it could be a positive dream you you wake up happy if you met a relative deceased relative generally that's all gifted to you go and meet somebody and you remember that dream? So these are the different dreams that we have all of this goes back to the Rohingya loaded back to the sisters yes in the back sister in the chair go ahead yes

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

I cannot hear you at all you have to speak louder

00:57:43 --> 00:57:50

we will talk about where the soul is after that. That's the whole series of lectures in Charlotte you're in the right Lecture Series inshallah. Sister go ahead Yes.

00:57:54 --> 00:57:58

Are there any do hours to make for the soul itself?

00:58:00 --> 00:58:22

will lie that's a question that I'll have to think about nothing comes to my mind. Immediately because when you make do you make do for the body and soul together? Right? Or like guide me who is me it is your soul and your body together. And you make do our for your cupboard to be a good place and that is an indirect offer the soul

00:58:23 --> 00:58:33

but specifically to mention the word soul in the door. I will have to think that's a question I've never been asked Let me think about this. inshallah, final question before we break for today we're going to go ahead.

00:58:37 --> 00:58:42

I didn't say this. Allah says when you go to sleep, your soul is taken away. This is in the Quran.

00:58:50 --> 00:59:09

This is a very good question Do those who die in their sleep, go through soccer or to remote. The response to this inshallah we will discuss. But in a nutshell, psychological mode sometimes occurs in a state that the people around cannot detect.

00:59:10 --> 00:59:59

Going through Saqqara doesn't mean that the person next to you knows that you're going through soccer rot. There could be soccer rot that the room is undergoing, and the body does not know about it. And as well, sometimes Allah blesses some people to pass away without saccharides and that's something that not every single soul goes to there's some exceptions that take place. For example, for the Shahid, there is no sucker out for the Shaheed but generally speaking, the default is the average person that passes away there are sucker rot. What do we say to the world who passes away in his sleep? The response we're going to come to more detail later, but their sucker rod will be in a way that we cannot detect we cannot know. But still, the cutting of that line and the final stages

01:00:00 --> 01:00:20

These are soccer rods and sometimes it occurs and the body is still breathing and awake. And sometimes it occurs in the body is unconscious or asleep. That doesn't mean the soccer art isn't occurring. It means you cannot detect it. And there's a difference between the two Sharla. With this we will conclude and resume next Wednesday is Dr. Bill office.
