Every soul will taste death, and you will only be given your (full) compensation on the Day of Resurrection – [Surat Al Imran].
The Shaykh also makes clear the position of the Awrah, since when it existed, what was the conversation between them and Allah and much more. Listen intently and get all those unanswered questions put to rest.
We also get acquainted with the three different types of dreams that a human being gets. What are they ? Shaykh Yasir Qadhi answers explicitly.
hamdulillah Isla is niram
Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah, Camden, Kathy
Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah weida Ali, he will be here woman, while hammerberg This is my first time coming to your community and messages. And honestly, it has made me very, very happy. And I don't say this just as a generic statement. I'm very happy and I feel very fortunate and blessed to be here. And I was speaking to my hosts and and, you know, the the gatherings that we had before and I was said the same thing to them, that it's very heartwarming to see, from my perspective, I know you, you know, I'm not trying to, you know, make this area, you know, criticize or something. But it seems as if you're far away from many other places, let's put it that way,
okay, in a very polite way. And you're driving by what might appear to be empty lands, and you find this beautiful messages in the middle of nowhere, and the message is full of people, and not just people but Mashallah subotica law, the friendliness that was here, the brotherly kindness that was very apparent, everybody knows everybody else, there is a strong sense of community. And for that, I tell you, as somebody who has lived in many cities, and visited hundreds, if not 1000s, of mosques, that's a very, very big blessing, where the community feels a network, they feel as if they're a part of, you know, a group here, and in many large cities, and you guys know, Chicago is around the
corner. And many large cities, you don't have that. There's friendliness, but there's little brotherhood, you know, some people but not beyond that. And what I sent to you what I saw here, what is apparent is that 100 and that's a very tight knit community. And for this, it's a very, very big blessing that I hope that inshallah Tada, you can appreciate, and from my side already told my hosts that no, typically I don't come to communities, except every three, four years. But for your community, shout out anytime you want. Shell as soon as you're willing, I'm more than happy to come back on hamdulillah and be a part of this is a very beautiful, beautiful experience here. So
inshallah today, let's talk about a rather morbid topic, we don't usually talk about it, and that is death. And the reason we talk about death is not so that we feel sad.
The reason that we talk about death is so that we live a productive life.
In Islam, we are commanded to think of death, but not in a negative manner, not in a matter that's gonna make you go depressed, is gonna make you do nothing. No, on the contrary, the purpose of thinking of death is so that we prepare for it. And the way we prepare for it is how is by living the best life that we can. And so islamically thinking of death, actually makes us live a better life. The whole psychology is reversed. We are taught in this culture, that Oh, just don't think of it. That's not something you really think about. It's a morbid topic, right? It's taboo. You're not talking about death. But unless I know what it reminds us in the Quran over and over again, a coup
de Cobo to whatever.
Wherever you are, death is going to overtake you. Even if you are in fortresses that are guarded, borrowed macheda, you're in fortresses that are constructed and guarded, the Angel of Death cannot be protected from anybody, by anybody by anything. So Allah reminds us good lunasin that cultural mode, every soul is going to taste death. And one of the most powerful verses in the Quran about death. It is addressed to none other than the most blessing of all human beings and that is our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah speaks to him directly in the first person. Listen to this verse and memorize it. Allah speaks to the Prophet system directly. And Allah subhana wa tada
says, alpha emitter for humble Hadith.
Alpha emitter foolhardy to Yasuda law, if you are going to die.
Do they think they will live forever?
I want you to imagine the psychology of this verse. Who is speaking to whom what is
The context of revelation in making it what it is. This isn't the Quran, in what in who, you yasunaga are going to die and they are going to die. One
of the can hold, we did not give eternal life to any human being. Then Allah says the same verse, if you are going to die will they live meaning if anyone, any one had been given eternal life, who would it be? who deserves if any human being were to be given it, it is a pseudo loss of the loved one, and he was sending him. But Alonzo just tells us in the Quran, no one has been given eternal life. If you have not been given eternal life, then do they think they will be spared and saved. And now of course, this verse is coming to us 1400 years after the death of the process, and we were born, and he's already passed away. So the shock of his death is not something that we are always
thinking about. Because we were born that way. When these verses came down, even the Sahaba did not fully comprehend them. Because they love the Prophet sallallahu Sallam so much. They couldn't imagine a world without him. And that's what nsmt Malik said, that the day the Prophet says, I'm entered Medina, it was the happiest day of our lives. And the day that he passed away, it was the saddest day of our lives. This is telling us, the day that he came, our lives became bright, we were the happiest and happy and the day that he died, it was the saddest day of our lives.
The death of the prophets of the law. I mean, he was saying there was nothing that the Sahaba even thought about even could contemplate. And that is why when he saw the level it sort of passed away. They didn't know Is this true? Is it over, you all know what happened or whatever for Tommy himself, he began marching up and down the masjid when the rumors spread, that the process of them passed away, he brought his sword to the masjid in are supposed to bring your sword to the masjid. He brought his sword to the budget, in his anger in his anxiety in his grief. And he said, anybody who dares blackfield and say rasulillah sister has died, I will cut that off, I don't want to hear it
from anybody. Because he's you know, when you're emotional when you lose a loved one, sometimes you don't think rationally, sometimes you just lose it, as they say, and the love that they had for socialism was too much. And no one could calm down. Other than a worker, no one had the audacity to walk in, verify the process of as passed away, and then come outside, and then say sit down with the sword drawn, who has that audacity sit down, Omar. And when Omar did not sit down, couldn't care less, he stepped on the minbar. And he gave the hope. And he recited these verses that I just recited for you the same verses that talk about the death of the province of the law, I said now
that we are talking about all the time, I will do the law one, he recited them right at that point when he passed away. And he said of the verses that he said, as a matter of putting a copy come when he dies, or is he or he is killed? Are you going to turn away from your religion? And then he said his famous words, as we all know, that know that if Rasulullah sallallahu you send them has died, then the Lord of rasulillah is how united he is, and he never dies. And what did he say? He said, when he recited those verses, these verses, and I'm just reciting. It was as if I had never heard them up until that time,
and my own feet gave way I couldn't carry myself, I lost valid, and I slumped to the floor, because I realized that it had occurred. So the point here that I'm coming across is that even the Sahaba they never really thought deeply about the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And yet it was a reality of this life and of our lives. And that's why he sets a lot more than he was setting up to the Saba he's saying, and to us through them, that whenever any of you is troubled by a calamity, then take solace in the calamity of my death for my own, but will not be tested with a greater calamity than that is a very interesting hydroton in my job, whenever one of you faces a
calamity, then take comfort in the calamity of my death. What does this mean take comfort in the calamity of my death. The meaning is as follows. Let me give you an example that we understand an example that we understand suppose suppose that we went through a tough time one of us went through a tough time and let's say you lost $100,000 in the stock market, whatever. Okay, then you
overcame that you're back on your feet, then you lost a few years later $10,000 when you lose the 10,000 that's pinching you, but you're gonna say, You know what? I lost 100,000 and I'm still here today 10,000 I can deal with. You see the point here, right? You see, when you have a minor calamity, you take comfort in a larger calamity. And you say, you know what I did that we went through, we're here fine, we can do that. Our soul sallallahu Sallam is telling the Sahaba and through the cyber is telling us when you're facing a calamity, you think you cannot do it, you think everything's gonna go haywire, then take comfort that you oma face the calamity bigger than that?
And this is in particular true of the calamities that the oma faces right right now we are facing 100 calamities but asleep is a calamity Burma is a calamity Syria and bloodshed was a calamity the Chinese Muslims they call everywhere in the world was a calamity. If somebody feels How was the oma How was the oma the process of missing Look, my death was a far bigger calamity for the oma than any incident in the region. And yet the oma overcame, and the oma rose to the heights and the omo rule the world and the oboe went from under the China and The Omen and the oma it overcame that surely it can overcome the next one as well. So when one of you is faced with a masiva with a calamity, take
comfort in the calamity of my death. Because there's not going to be a communal oma, a communal calamity that is bigger than that of the Prophet solo la vida, he was setting them and as well, Allah subhana wa tada reminds us of the origin of the unknown Time of death, the unknown time, nobody knows death. Death is one of those things that Allah subhanho wa Taala has preserved in his own knowledge and a lot as the origin mentioned in the Quran,
that the soul does not even know where it is going to die. Why am I tethered enough soon be a winter mode, the soul does not even know which land it will die in, forget the time you cannot even control the country of your death. And how many stories we hear how many incidents that I know and you know, that the person will goes to a land for a short trip and nobody thinks that that is going to be the last trip and yet he passes away there because it was unless other how many times we hear of a person you know struggling to go for him or hedge and they give up hope they cannot go and then Allah blesses for them away. And lo and behold, that becomes the death that after, after, after
Medina, a beautiful death occurs in the land of the hot domain and they are very over there it was written, it was written that is Ahmed is going to be in Medina in Battier It was written and his family himself how am I going to get their house but everything the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says
that if Allah Allah and other is that a person will die in a certain land, then Allah will create a need that causes that man to go to that land to die over there. This is a Heidi you cannot predict it is in Allah other death is something it is going to happen. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows when and where and no one else knows when and where. And that is why we are reminded over and over again to think of death, not for the sake of morbidity, not for the sake of feeling morose and sad. But as we said, for the sake of productivity for the sake of doing your best you don't intelligent students, hardworking students, all of us when we go to our careers, we're given deadlines, what is
the purpose of the deadline, one of the purposes plan so that when you get to the deadline, you've done it the exam, when you sit down you have two hours, the smart student keeps on looking at the watch say, Okay, I got a plan this question I got to do this. That's the purpose that the reason that you think of the end is so that you do something good before the end. So that okay, we don't know the exact time agreed, but we know what's going to come. So the wise person prepares for that before it comes. And that's why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said had ethers and soon Annalisa Akito Minh decree had demanded that I think frequently, you can think frequently about that
thing which destroys all pleasures. Here is a command to think frequently about death. We are commanded. Don't just ignore it, don't get rid of it. So an honest question, don't say it out loud. I'm asking you to ask yourself and I asked myself this question. When was the last time that you thought about that? So now this question here we have IDs, the Profit System to say I am commanding you to think of debt.
Frequently, frequently. Some of us haven't thought of death for years. And we are commanded to think of it frequently. Why? Had he isn't even magic tells us why. Even Omar said that once I was sitting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And a man came and said Yasuda law, who is the best of the Muslims, man of God, who is the best? The prophets of the law? He said, I've said, of God, to Whom? The one whose manners are the best. If your monitor is with the best of the best Muslim, then the man said Yasuda law? Who is the guy, the smartest of the Muslims? Who has the most intelligence, the IQ? Do you know what our Prophet was a little love where it was said them said, he said, the one
who remembers them the most, and has prepared for what will come after. Those are the smartest Muslims, the one who thinks of death the most, and has prepared for it. That is the guy that is the smartest Muslim has nothing to do with an IQ test has nothing to do with SAP grades with gra has nothing to do with passing an exam of this dunya. Now, you can be highly intelligent in the eyes of a law and the people think you're just a simple person doesn't matter, because real intelligence is not how to pass the test in two hours. Real intelligence is to understand the purpose of life. That is real intelligence. Real intelligence is to know what you're doing here. What is the purpose of me
being in this earth? What am I doing to prepare for the final day? And that intelligence is completely separate from the intelligence of this dunya and half of that have been one of the famous scholars of Islam, one of the famous odema of Islam, one of the students have even told me, he writes, do not be deceived by the pseudo intelligence of the philosopher's. Don't be deceived by those whose towels wild with big words and whatnot for Allah azza wa jal is pleased with the simple innocent person who has duck walk. And he despises the pseudo intellectual who has no religiosity. Think about this brothers and sisters, so very true point. Allah is pleased with the simple man,
that people might think, Oh, this is a manual labor or this is a farmer doesn't matter what the people think. This is a man who believes in a law lives a good life prepares for the after, and Allah loves this person raises his ranks. And as for these pseudo philosophers, who reject God, reject judgment date, reject this and that and they say every, whatever their beliefs might be, their IQ has not saved them from us punishment, their long words and fancy winded what what God has done to them when they haven't recognized the purpose of life, and they don't have a meaning for their life, their life is devoid of any positive meaning. And by the way, this is one of the most
important points of religion, why do we need religion will not hear we need religion to live simple as that? What is the purpose of faith? What is the purpose of life without faith? That's the question, what is the purpose of life without a higher purpose? and faith gives us that higher purpose? Faith tells us the answers to the biggest questions. Why are we here? Who created us? What is the purpose? What's going to happen after death? No philosophy without faith can answer those questions, no ideology, no system of this dunya can give us the eternal happiness that faith can give us because faith answers the most important questions that every human being is going to ask
himself and herself. And that is, what is the purpose of all of this? And there is no good answer. Without faith. People have their answers without faith, but those of you not, they have the best answers, the most solid answers and the answers that truly make life worth living. And as well brothers and sisters realized as well, that there's another Headey that is somewhat scary for us, and that is our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, it is intermedius authentic, Allah Almighty Medina sitting in our submarine, what can he do minimum, but I was on a submarine. The average age of my oma is between 60 to 70. And few are the people that will go beyond 70. He's
giving us a General Mark. And that's why because in previous years, the average age was more and the time of profit, nonprofit Ibrahim, you could have lived longer in our timeframe, the Profit System is saying that we have an average age span. Now this average it always is broken. There are those who pass away 15 2025 there are those who live Mashallah 100 150 years, but what is the average age? What is the average
Ah, Amar oma tema VEDA city in our submarine, the average age between 60 and 70. And our Prophet sallallahu. I said he passed away at 63, which is on the younger side of that timeframe, but within that timeframe, so the goal brothers and sisters to think about death, as I said, is to live a more productive life tabouleh caldari big hill moon kohala cliche and for the under the hood, aka Rama began with an makuta will hire who created life and death. Why? What is the purpose? LEAH Balu aku au comme Isola Bella, to test you, who amongst you is the best in good deeds, the purpose of life is to test the purpose of death is to test you in your life, while Apple motor will hire notice is what
a lot begins with death before life, even though we are living life before death, and that the hierarchal motor one higher he created death and life. Why? Because Allah knows we are reading this verse when we're alive, but he's reminding us what will happen at the end of life. And that's why Allah reminds us
that each one of us essentially has two deaths and two life in the sense what does it mean to live the life of this world and the life of the hereafter called Europe banner image definitely what I hate and entertain, Oh our Lord, we were dead twice, and you give us life twice. This is an ayah in the Quran that people are going to say in the next world. People don't say that this world because they don't believe in the next life. When we are resurrected, people are going to save all robina I met Jonathan attaining.
attain, we were dead twice, meaning we didn't exist. And then we died after life. And you gave us life twice meaning the life of this dunya and the life of the Pharaoh. Right? So there's a verse that clearly explains there is going to be that death, then life then death, then life. But here is the point here as well that the interim between the two lives is not like the interim before the beginning of our first life. Let me repeat the interim between the life of this dunya and the life of the earth. Hara is not like, pre life.
Did we exist before pre life? Did we exist before we were born? I'm asking you a question. Who knows? Did we exist before we were born? No. Yes.
Where did we exist?
But that's not an actual existence. This is an existence that was knowledge. written in the book Yes, we are written in the book. Did we exist as as separate individuals? No.
Both of you are right, yes or no? How is that possible? Depends on what you mean. Depends on what you mean. There was an existence. We call it an English primordial existence, the existence before existence. And this is referenced in the Quran, as soon as they are off with
any other member who they return home either and forcing him others to be or have become all rubella shahina. This is a very profound verse in the Quran, and the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they explain and clarify it. And it goes as follows. Allah Subhana which Allah as we all know, he sent our father Adam down to this world, we all know that, and our mother how they came down, and alaris origin repent accepted the repentance of Adam, on this dunya what I saw
so much devour abou Fatah de la, Adam disobeyed. Then a was origin accepted his Toba Where did a lot accept his Toba According to the reports in our font in the valley of Norman and artifacts in artifacts, and when Alonzo Origen accepted his temper, Allah subhana wa Tada, extracted right then and there. This is an interesting point. Very few people know this, but it's in the books have added the more secondary books not in the sixth books, and it's the books of theology as well. Allah subhanho wa Taala extracted from them and he said on every single rule of every human being, that is going to be born from his time, up until the AMA.
Allah created Adam up there, not down here. And Allah created his body up there. And Allah blew the rule of Adam up there, whenever fee rolling. So the rule of Adam Allah created directly himself and Allah shaped Adam himself.
Allah blew the roof into Adam himself. So that is Adam and his setup. Where was my Lord created? Where was your roof created in this world? When, when a law accepted the repentance of Adam, from the war of Adam, from the
myth of slavery be Adam as the head it goes from the loins of Adam, Allah subhanho, wa Taala, Hanukkah, all of the glory of Adam. This is one of the happens. So our rule, not our bodies. Our rule was created at that point in time in our files,
and alarms origin
put all of these Ottawa in front of him, finance our home Bay, all of these Ottawa are in front of Allah subhana wa Tada. And then Allah spoke to these Ottawa. So this means the Ottawa, the roof, they had intellect they could think they're not body, they're just ruling. And Omar asked them in the Quran, it says, What did he asked them? Let's do Europe back home. This isn't the Quran surah Allah of 172 or 178? Okay? Am I not your Lord? Am I not your Lord? Or you? We all said that, yes, You are our Lord. So this means we did exist before our existence in this world. Clear. We did exist. We existed only in rule, not ingested. And we existed in a way that we don't have memory of
it. I don't remember the day of an estimate of bacon. Do you remember it? Anybody remember it? No. But we answered a law.
We answered our law we know you are true. We know you're worthy of worship, we know you exist. And that answering By the way, this is what we call the fifth law that's inside of us. It's something that's embedded inside we know Allah exists. Every human being Muslim and Buddhist and Hindu male and female everybody deep down inside, there's something called a filter. And that filter goes back to the day of unless to others to get on. So all of mankind said yes. Oh Allah, we know You are our Lord. There's something inside that knows right from wrong. Now then what happened then? In the wombs of our mothers, on the 14th day of conception, the Hadith and Buhari says the angel comes and
breathes the rule into the fetus.
So who breeds myro? And euro into us? The angel? Unlike Adam, who breed Adam,
a lot of you guys follow me, you're good sleeping. You guys awake? Yes. Okay, this quietness, answer the question, who breathed the road into Adam, Allah subhanho wa Taala, who breeds the road and to all of us, the angels big difference, big difference. On the 40th day the angel comes and breathes the road into every lady who is pregnant, and our mother is your mother, all of us. That's where the joy comes.
And then we are born into this world. Now in this life, our role and our body are always connected. Our world and our body are always connected.
There's only one time where the connection becomes partial and not full. And that is during times of sleep. During the time of sleep when we go to sleep, what is Sleep, sleep is when the roof partially leaves the body not fully. Sleep is when the Lord partially leaves the body not fully. And that is why when we go to sleep
our route remains connected via some mechanism we do not know the scholars say some type of invisible thread but in the end of the day, it's beyond in my lane.
But the point is that sleeping is a type of death.
And this is in the Quran and the Sunnah Allah Azza wa fusa hain about the one that
takes the souls when they die. And when they go to sleep, this is
in their known and in their modes, Allah takes the souls but what is the difference? When a man takes the soul at the time of sleeping, the soul is connected, one of our texts the soul at the time of death.
Cut off nothing. Complete, emphasize complete disconnection between the soul and the body. And that is why it is so common that people don't
in their sleep, because it's a stepping stone, they go to sleep and they never wake up. And that's common. This is no problem this and that, by the way that any any type of death, you know, potentially is good or bad in the sense of, you know, we shouldn't read it too much about what time and this and that there are certain signs that are good, but any type of death you can interpret in a shallow in a positive or negative. The main thing is what is the state of the mind at the time of death, not the physical body. If somebody died of a heart attack, somebody died of cancer, somebody died and going to sleep in and of themselves shallow there's nothing at all can have any positive
things. So don't read it anymore. But I'm saying here, one of the common types of death is people go to sleep and they don't wake up Why? Because essentially the soul was taken at sleep and they never sent it back. And that is why in general, there will be no sleeping. Because our prophecies sort of said it was authentic, simple.
A no mo
l motes Sadie unknown, a who elbows, sleeping is the brother of death. Our processor is telling us so because there is going to be no death in the AF era. There will be no sleep in the middle. You will say But hold on a sec. I'm going to get tired. I'm going to get tired. And the response is in jedna there is never getting tired. There is never feeling sleepy. There is never a sense of fatigue. That's why gender is gender.
In the US have agenda tateyama fi shoehorning keyboard.
Verily the people of gender will be perpetually busy in having fun. That's literally how the first translates should in fact, they're going to be perpetually busy enjoying themselves and by the way, this is a beautiful combination. That is bizarre and weird. Because when you enjoy yourself you don't say you're busy. When you're busy. You're always under stress. You're not enjoying yourself right? To combine shoe one shoe one even the outer gear what is shown to work, you don't smile when you're done. Right shuffle is problem show one is distressed show one is Monday morning that you have to think about right now. You can ignore this Friday night but Monday morning is shown right?
You don't want to and then *a and by the way *a literally faqir and for Kawasaki has done which makes the stomach happy and forgot that which makes the brains happy. Right? So yeah, and it having fun. And so should in fact he who is actually an oxymoron, that only works for agenda
means they will have so much opportunity to have fun. They're going to be busy having fun.
They're never going to get tired. One thing is done another thing another thing and they're going to be perpetually busy just having fun enough habit and usually do so there is no tiredness agenda, there is no fatigue agenda and therefore there's no sleep in gender and that is why Allah subhanaw taala mentions home was why do you feel the knot in either aiki would tend to warn them and their wives they will be in shade reclining on couches recline, because reclining is what you do when you're having fun you're not going to go to sleep on your reclining recliner you read a book you kick your legs out you have you know something on TV whatever you're having a fun time Okay, so they
are more techie on this is because they don't need to go to sleep. there's not gonna be any sleep in gentlemen. So the point being that in this dunya we will never face an obviously a permanent DNA separation of the road from the body until the actual time of death comes. And of course we all know that the time of death is something that no one knows except Allah subhana wa tada and it is something that you cannot delay you cannot make it early for either judgmental home father is that and what is the mode when the time of death comes? They can neither delay it by a second nor can they preceded by a second. No human being can change the time of death and death will come as Allah
says in the Quran, even if they are in protected fortress. And every one of us listen to this has an angel assigned
just to take our soul.
It is a common misconception that there is one molecule moat. No, no, there is one head multiple votes yes.
But every one of us has an age
whose only purpose the only job that he has is you are the medical mode for so and so you are the medical model for so and so because Allah angels, by the way are beyond counting what
you cannot count the number of angels, there are more than angels that you can imagine up but this summer
the heavens are creaking and they have every right to Creek because there is not a single space, even a hand span except that there's an angel standing doing record prostrating praising Allah subhana wa Tada, the heavens above, we think they are empty, they are creaking with angels. So every one of us has an angel, somewhere to have medical motility. wakita deikun Allah says in the Koran, then the medical boat that has been assigned to you will come and take your soul. There is a medical boat with your name, my name, and that medical boat has been told by Allah I don't know it, no human being knows it. That medical note has been told at this time at this day at this location, you will
go and you will take that person's soul and that medical boat will come without any problems. You cannot protect yourself. He's not in your schedule calendar, you don't schedule that appointment, that appointment will be put upon you don't schedule that appointment. And when that appointment comes, all other appointments will be permanently cancelled. That is the reality analyzer which I mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah as well mentioned that when the person sees the angel, the angel comes in two forms. So the death begin the history.
The beginnings of death are the beginnings of
meaning heaven and hell. Of course, they are decided officially in judgment, they of course, but from the time of death, you start getting an indication where you are headed. From the angel of death, you start getting an indication, because the angel of death will either be coming in a merciful form or in a harsh form. So you get the beginnings already. Our Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, when the time for death comes for the believer, the Angel of Death comes and he takes his soul. Look at the example he gave, like water is poured from a glass. Smooth, clear. He takes the soul like water is poured. It's just flowing. He takes a soul that easily there's no harshness
there's no jerking. There's no problem. And the most beautiful shrouds are put on him and the most scented perfumes. And as for as he can see, the angels are surrounding him with good news glad tidings happy faces.
And the angels say to him, don't be scared. Don't worry, we're gonna take care of you.
In the inner power of Buena Vista como China's Bella eco Hoff who has no agenda till he can come to I don't know. No, oh, Leah who come here to do laughter. Again, this isn't the for those who say Allah is our Lord. And they remain firm on that belief, the angels will come down and armies and armies that
as the process of said, as far as the eyes can see why. Because every person is going to be terrified without exception. We are all scared of death. And when the time of death comes, we will be scared, we will be worried. So imagine the first thing that you see as your eyes open in the next world, you will see beautiful handsome creations of a law creations of a law whose very presence brings you mercy whose very appearance brings you calmness. These are as far as the eye can see you are scared and they will say Don't worry, not too hopeful. You're worried I'm leaving my family, my children what Allah has said, we're going to take care of them. We are your protectors, not only our
own in this world, we took care of you. We'll take care of you now as well. And then the prophecies that upset the angels will carry him gently one after the other gently pushing him up and up and up until he goes up to Allah subhana wa Tada. And of course, you will see it will not see a lot this time, but Allah azza wa jal will say write the name of this servant in the register of good books. The October could have led him there.
There's a lien and sujeet write the name of this servant in a lien and then he will be gently taken down gently handled until he reaches his upper and there the upper will become a vast place for him, he will smell the fragrance of genda he will see his Alison Jenna, the grave will become light and he will make dua to Allah Oh Allah hasten judgment day so that I can enter agenda, Allah hasten gamma, so that I can enter my palace and gentlemen, this is the one who will be a good person, and the opposite our process and upset when the fougere the first step on the calf, when his time comes, the angels of punishment will come, the very look of them will strike terror into our hearts,
looking at them, and we will be terrified. And they will extract the soul the process of said listen to this example. It's a terrifying example, like wet wool is dragged through an iron comb. Imagine what will drag through an iron call, the soul is going to be literally dragged out tortured to leave, because it doesn't want the actor that wants to stay. It's terrifying, wants to go back, and it will be dragged out in this manner. And then that person will see, as far as the eye can see the angels of punishment, who's very looks will terrify, and they will mention him with the worst of names and remind him of the worst of these and handling with the worst of care. And then Allah will
say, put the name of this person in surgeon and the other registered, not the register of the good deeds, the register of the bad people. And he will then be returned to his grave where the punishments of the grave will begin. And he will say Oh, and he will see his place in Geneva. And he will say Oh, a law never caused the judgment to come online never caused the judgment to come. And that's why the Prophet system said the cover the grave is the first station of all the stations of the hereafter the cupboard is the first station of all of the stations of the Hereafter, and that will begin the period of the bottles. The bottles or what is the bottles of the bottles of literally
means the interim, it literally in Arabic means the middle, it's the barrier.
Allah says in the Quran that we're buying bottles of labor via between the two oceans, there is a barrier that the oceans will not cross. So barossa is a middle is a barrier. And so the bugs have is called barossa because it is the barrier between this world and the next world between our death and between the piano and the piano begins with the trumpet. How long is the bursa? The Bowser is beyond time.
And so the one who dies close to judgment day versus the son of Adam who died 50,000 years ago. For them the purpose of is the same. It's not our time, time is a different reality in the browser. It has nothing to do with our life over here. It is a separate reality. And there is life in the bursa. And the more righteous a person, the more they will enjoy the buzzer and the uncomfort in the buzzer, so much so the most righteous of all people these are the prophets. They will be praying in the bowels of as they will pray in this world. The Prophet system said I pass by the power of Moosa and I saw him standing and praying to Allah subhana wa Taala so life is so peaceful for them.
They're standing and praying in the cupboard because that's their life. And the Shaheed is barossa has what is the bottles of her peace and comfort. As the process solo Selim said his reward will be in Jelena flying around, literally he won't even be in this dunya and the righteous they will enjoy the abundance of because the board as a whole become the beginnings of gender. As we said, He will smell the fragrance of gender, he will see the Palace of gender. So he's at peace, he knows he's going to go there, if anything hasty he wants it to come. And the opposite is also true that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that the copper is the most terrifying thing I have ever
seen. Nothing is more terrifying than the other. And he mentioned that the upper has Isaiah, and the cover has the fitna. There's something called the fitting of the cover and the idea of the cover and the name of the cover three things are there. What are these things, the pfitzner of the cover the fitna is the examination of the cover the test of the cover. This is called the fitna and the fitna is basically Mancha and Nicki coming and asked you the three questions. Who is your Lord? Who is your Prophet, and what is your religion and at that stage
There is no cheating on the exam.
You cannot just memorize the answers and have them on a piece of paper. At that stage,
your life and your lifestyle will answer for you, not your tongue.
At that stage, did you really worship a lot? That is the question. Did you follow the Prophet system as a role model? That is the question, did you live your life in accordance with Islam? That is the question. Your tongue means nothing, your life will answer, Morocco,
man or be your manorbier cormann w. Medina. And at that stage, if your actions did not live up to your words, you will not be able to cheat on the exam. This is called the fitna of the Hubbard. And then after this, if you pass you get then he will cover the blessings of the public we talked about them. And if you don't, you get the either will pop up, which is the punishment of the top and the Punisher of the poverty is the beginnings of the punishment of the hereafter. And it is something that we seek refuge from a lot from our profit systems. And he says, I never saw the prophecies in praise of the $5 except that after it he would say, a lahoma in the arrow do become a fitna to other
It's a common law, every time he would pray, he would say all along, I seek refuge in You from the fitna of the harbor, and from the eyes of the public. And so the fitna is one thing, that is another thing, and we seek refuge in a lot from the both of them. And we want the other to be a place of Naeem a place of blessing, not a place of torture. And of course, this is the bottles up here, final point to your time is getting out one of the time for q&a as well is their contact between us. And the people of the bursa is their contact between the people of this dunya and the people of the bursa.
our scholars have very widely agreed, almost unanimous that there is contact between the people of this world and between the people of Gaza. But important point, this contact is something a lot of gifts to people that he chooses, it is not something that I can form a connection to.
I don't do something there's not a special phone number that I call on you call the buttons up there. Okay, one 900 charged user three minutes or no, it doesn't work that way. Okay. There is no way that you can contact somebody in the browser through anything that you do.
It is a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala or a test and a trial could be a gift, it could be Yanni it could be both. And
generally speaking, this contact it occurs during sleep. Why? Because when you are asleep, you are in the same
the same dimension college as the bursa.
When you go to sleep, that is you are essentially kind of sort of wandering into the bowels of but you're still connected to your body.
So when you're in your sleep, it is very common to see deceased people
and our scholars mentioned it is very likely now here's an important disclaimer. If you see somebody who is deceased in the in the dream, it could be one of three things. Okay. one of three things. Number one,
it is possible rare but possible that it is shavon taking the form of your loved one.
How will you know this? If your loved one says something how long to do something How long?
For sure this is shameful
shaytaan will use the form of your loved one and you get some advice Oh don't worry about stealing the money go ahead steal the money if you there's money you want to steal you're wondering you're conscious getting to you you go to sleep you see a loved one Oh don't worry. This is not a line is messenger This is not your loved one telling you to do something wrong. This is shavon using the tactic of your loved one, the tactic of looking at like somebody that might deceive you definitely throw out the window not possible not possible that an actual diseased person will come and tell you to do something wrong because they know what you should be doing in the next life. Okay. The second
the How do you know that we say when the weather something hard on the second. It could be from your own imagination.
You really miss your
Grandmother, you've been thinking about your grandmother all day long that you go to sleep, and you just have a brief vision of your grandmother.
This is your own imagination in its sleep. Right? Your sleep is projecting your imagination. And so you think you see this how do you know it's your sleep? Generally speaking, the sign that it is your imagination is that you don't remember what happens is just a vague memory and then maybe even when you wake up, you have a vague idea that within the day, you forget that Oh, you don't even remember that you saw the dream. You know, when you wake up generally, you have a idea that there was a dream within five minutes you have one inkling within 10 minutes you've forgotten the whole dream. So those types of dreams they are from our own imagination.
The third type of dream which is a gift from Allah,
as our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the true dream is one over 46 part of Prophet would be the Prophet you have 46 things jack jack jack jack 46 requirements. One requirement is your dreams are true. And our prophets of Allah, why do you send them said lamb? Yup, Amina booty lol Baba shirat, nothing is left from Prophethood except true dreams. So if you see a dream, where you have a good conversation with your loved one, you remember it, or at least snippets of it. And it's overall, you know, positive, what not then insha, Allah hota, Allah insha Allah, this is a gift from Allah that He gave you for meeting your loved one. Okay. And of course, of the greatest. In fact,
the greatest is for us to see the profits of the loggers live in a dream. And if we see the profits or submit a dream, it must be him. There is no other possibility. Because he said, when one of you sees me in a dream, then know that you have seen me because shavon cannot take my form.
Which means he can take other people's forms. That's why I said you have to be careful of the three. But if anybody sees the profits of a model, I said him in a dream, that this isn't a solo assassin shape and cannot take the shape of the Prophet salallahu it he was sending is a beautiful, beautiful good tidings for those that have seen the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in a dream and have interacted with him that they have truly seen the prophet SAW Selim. Now question here a bit of a freaky question, huh?
Can we see the people of the barossa when we are awake?
Or if I were to, quote a famous movie, can we see dead people?
Can we see dead people? While we're awake?
You should not when maybe you can do what is when you should not why should not?
means if you do there is a mental problem. And I agree with you, it's okay.
We hope that you do not Yes, if you do, then you need to go see a psychiatrist just basically, from a religious perspective, you cannot see that our law of the dead when you are awake, is that clear? From a religious perspective, you cannot see the souls of the deceased when you are awake, if you see the souls of the deceased, one of two things, either you yourself are a little bit loose up there, right? Or, or what else is the other possibility? shaytaan Very good, very good. shaytaan we do not believe in ghosts. The way that this culture it is, we do not believe that the spirits of the dead walk around know, the spirits of the dead are in the Gaza, they've gone. They have nothing to
do with this world. They are completely disconnected. We might enter their world when we're asleep. But they cannot enter our world ever The door is shut. So the only time is resetting the dream. And that is a gift from Allah subhana wa Tada. Now, of course, the talk is only part one and shall come back in here part two, part two is what happens at the trumpet. Okay, so shall the next time I come this will be my topic in sha Allah, that this basically goes from the time of death up until the bottom and then the next part of the story begins. And that is the trumpet and piano and what will happen in the AMA, and the hisab, and the out and the shefa and the Pantera and the visa, and all of
those various things that are going to take place in the household and all of these are there. That's another different topic. And in the end, we pray that Allah Subhana Allah blesses us with a good life so that we have a peaceful death. There's an anecdote by the woman to conclude with, and that is as follows one of the famous scholars of our religion
Who had read many books he had traveled far and wide. And when he was about to die, his students gathered around him. And his students said, and I love this story, I quote it all the time, his students said, Oh, Chef, you are the wisest person we've ever met. And you have traveled the world and have read so many books and gems and whatnot. Tell us before you depart, what is the one piece of advice that you found the most amazing in your travels and journey and reading? What is the thing that really is the most profound for you?
The scholar said,
the most profound thing for me is that a child is born and lives his or her whole life, surrounded by death. Everybody dies, the grandparents died, their parents died, the cousins died, their relatives died, the friends die one after the other. But that young man or woman never once thinks that one day, he or she is going to die as well.
What a profound statement. We are surrounded by death. Every few days, we hear of another death of our people, every few days, about people that we know, obviously death is a daily occurrence in the world. But I'm saying in our lives, every few days, months, weeks, years, somebody Oh my God, I was just with him. I just met him last week, I just saw him at a party over there. I just saw she was at the wedding. And then soprano was a phone call comes and then you inshallah can use in your own. And we never want to think that one day the phone will ring and our friend will pick it up. And our name will be mentioned on that other side of the phone. Is it going to be our name that's gonna be
mentioned. And the other person is gonna say, Oh, my God, I was just with so and so I just this trade fight that I just had dinner, I just, and that's going to be we never think about that. Never. And that's why brothers and sisters as we conclude, the purpose of thinking of death is not to go into depression, not to become sad. No, the purpose of always thinking of death is to make the best of life and to live life to the maximum meaning prepare for the Euro, do the best of deeds, leave the greatest of legacies, make sure that when we go our family, our friends, our loved ones, they have nothing but the best thoughts of us that when we need the medical note that comes as the
medical drama that when we go the angels mentioned the good things that we did that when we entered the our our good deeds will make the cover vast for us and enlightened for us that on judgment day our hisar will be heavy. That is why we think of death. And we asked that allow us to have our data blessed us with a beautiful death. We asked what gives us the last phrase in our life to be learned either in the law Mohammed or pseudo law. We asked that Allah subhanho wa Taala give us a depth of ease and comfort and that he says some of the Socratic mode We ask Allah subhana wa tada to allow us to die in Medina and to the very important part the most blessing of all graveyards, we ask Allah
subhana wa tada that he makes our graves a vast place of light that he makes our graves, a place of Rama and a place of Noreen that he makes our graves a place where we can see our abode in gender and smell the fragrances of gender and we seek refuge general law that our graves become a place of punishment. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to be resurrected under a shade when there is no shade other than the shade of Allah We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to be invited by our prophets of Allah our lady was sending them directly by our names to drink from the fountain held the day that there is no water other than the water of the house. We ask that Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to drink
from the hour the drink once we drink it, we will never be thirsty for all of eternity. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make our skills heavy on judgment day We ask Allah subhana wa tality be given our books in the right hand and that we are then boasting to everybody how are Okita via come look at my book I have come prepared to meet this book We ask Allah subhana wa tada that He grant us the shefa of the prophets of the law that he was setting up on judgment day We ask Allah subhana wa tada it makes our feet firm. As we cross over the Surat We ask Allah subhana wa tada it gives us light when there is no light other than the light that He bestows upon the believers We ask Allah subhana
wa Taala to be of the first batches that enter agenda and to be of those who see him on Judgment date and agenda itself we asked a lot to kind of what to add to be in the company of the Prophet Mohammed solo la vida he was sending them in Jana tool for those that are either under the throne of a loss of Hannah who adada for only Allah is capable of doing this and he is the man and the Rahim and the hammer rock. I mean we're through their 111 I've been out I mean was sort of the law who was sending them about a kind of the Mohammed in the he will be a marine
