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

The next question is from Hamza from India.

00:00:06--> 00:00:11

Allah says in the Quran that he is not unjust in the least degree.

00:00:13--> 00:00:21

But I feel it is injustice to non Muslims who are more righteous than many Muslims to end up in hell.

00:00:23--> 00:00:28

And also it is unjust to put Muslims in heaven. We're not as righteous as some non Muslims.

00:00:30--> 00:00:32

This is a very important question.

00:00:33--> 00:00:39

But I'm glad asked that Allah subhanho wa Taala is not unjust in the least degree.

00:00:40--> 00:01:02

And it is unjust to put non Muslims who are more righteous into the hell and unjust for the Muslim who are not righteous to put in heaven. What the brother is referring to is a verse in the Quran from Surah Nisa, chapter number four was number 40. where Allah says in the Quran, that Allah is nowhere and just in the least degree that means Allah is the most just

00:01:03--> 00:01:09

he will not do even a minute fraction of injustice.

00:01:12--> 00:01:19

a fair question is concerned that why non Muslims who do righteous deeds will be put into Hellfire

00:01:20--> 00:01:25

and Muslims were unrighteous? Why should they be put in heaven?

00:01:26--> 00:01:31

We have to understand that what is the meaning of the word righteousness and who is the richest person

00:01:33--> 00:01:37

for me, to make you understand, I'll give you a free example.

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

Number one,

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

if

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

there are

00:01:46--> 00:01:50

total 199 US dollars

00:01:53--> 00:01:57

divided into 64 notes.

00:01:58--> 00:02:12

The 54 notes, if you total all the value of the 64 notes, it is $199 and distribute the notes to shoot people. Some get 10 notes, some get 20 notes, some get 30 notes,

00:02:13--> 00:02:15

some get less some get more.

00:02:16--> 00:02:28

A normal person who may not be aware of the notes and the value will say whoever gets the most notes, number of notes is the richest person No, it's not like that. We have to see what is the value of each note

00:02:30--> 00:02:34

in the 54 notes, one note is $100.

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

One note is of $20.

00:02:38--> 00:02:50

The $100 note is for a person who believes that there is only one God and that God has got no partners. And Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger

00:02:51--> 00:02:52

of the Almighty God.

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

The number $20 bill

00:02:55--> 00:03:00

US dollar is the person who prays five times a day.

00:03:01--> 00:03:39

Then there's 110 dollar note that is true five notes $10 note is for a person who gives a catchy stare at $5 note is the person who first and final note is a person goes for the remaining to all of you put together his $140 the remaining $59 or one $1 bill all put together the 64 notes, the 59 notes out of one $1 so just because somebody has 13 notes, or 30 bills, doesn't make him rich. If he had 30 bills of one $1 he has only a value of $30

00:03:41--> 00:03:55

the person who has $100 is more richer than all the other notes put together. If all the other 63 notes put together will make it only $99 but one bill of $100 more valuable than 63 bills.

00:03:56--> 00:03:58

all put together a $99

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

that Verizon the Creator, he has put this formula

00:04:05--> 00:04:48

unique clearly mentioned in the Quran in Surah Nisa, chapter number four Muslim 48 and certainly such as number 416, that Allah will forgive anything if he believes it, but he will never forgive the sin of ship. For anyone who has committed ship has strayed far away had done the most hideous sin. That means the biggest sin in Islam according to our Creator, Almighty God, Allah subhanaw taala is doing [???] in the associated partner with him is the biggest thing. And the best thing person can do is believe in only one God and believe that there is no one worthy of worship, but Almighty God and Prophet Muhammad is the messenger for mighty God. So he's the Creator. He said the

00:04:48--> 00:04:51

rule we are the people who undergo an examination.

00:04:52--> 00:04:56

Let me give an example. That in certain tests,

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

there are certain compulsory question which you

00:05:00--> 00:05:26

should pass separately, like I did a medical examination in MBBS. Besides the theory papers, we advise our most orals, every student had to pass separately my views separately, he may score 100, out of 100, in theory paper, but in the Viber was, if he fails, he fails the examination. I cannot argue this is a reset. So, the compulsory paper

00:05:27--> 00:05:55

in Islam is tied. You should believe in one God and worship in menorah no one else and the first pillar, that I bear witness that there is no God but Allah and Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah if compulsory, if you fail in this, you fail in the test, you may get as many other marks in the other question, this is number one. And let me give you an example. That if there is a question paper,

00:05:56--> 00:06:04

the total marks of all the answers in the question paper, it totals to 1000 marks.

00:06:06--> 00:06:25

One question is compulsory, most important, which carry 501 marks and the minimum passing marks the minimum passing for this paper is 501. If you get anything less than 501 out of 1000 that means you have to get more than 50% marks.

00:06:26--> 00:06:56

You have to get minimum 501. If you get anything less than 501 out of 1000. You fail like the mission. That means this one main question, which is compulsory. It is to hit it in the first pillar of Islam, that there's no one worthy of worship except Almighty God. And Prophet Muhammad the messenger for Mighty God, this is number one which carry 501 marks, then number two is Salah, maybe carrying 100 marks,

00:06:57--> 00:06:57

then

00:06:59--> 00:07:27

would be giving charity Zakat may be 50 marks, then fasting in the month of Ramadan, that maybe 20 bucks, then going for that maybe 10 months, another maybe 100 hundreds of more question to mark one month, three months, one one month. But if you get zero marks in the major question

00:07:28--> 00:07:33

of the heat of the first pillar of Islam, you failed the examination.

00:07:34--> 00:08:12

So this is a test for the hereafter. Allah says in the Quran in surah mulk chapter number 16 was number two, Allah the collateral Mata will have its allow escalated that the life to test which have is good indeed. So Allah subhana wa Taala has sent us in this world as a test for the era. And the rules and regulations have we laid down in the Quran. In the last and final revelation, he kept on sending revelations the moment it got corrupted he sent a new revelation. He sent a new messenger the moment it again got corrupted he sent a new message and a new revelation. There were many revelations sent on the face of the earth by knowing when only for Torah the poor engine and the

00:08:12--> 00:08:25

horror and the last and final revelation is the glorious Cora and the last and final messenger is Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. So you may be thinking this non Muslim he's very honest.

00:08:26--> 00:08:29

What is the mark for honesty? Okay, maybe five marks

00:08:30--> 00:08:46

or 1000 Mark five marks he very charitable. Okay maybe 10 marks is very kind for 10 marks, but out of 1000 months, the five marks 10 months five months 10 mark to mark one mark will not make it past the examination.

00:08:48--> 00:08:54

You may be thinking okay doing 10 good deeds or 20 good deeds. But if that one person who had the $100 bill,

00:08:56--> 00:09:35

who passes in the viver was the compulsory question. The one who gets full marks in forehead. He is the person who ensured to pass the best would be a Muslim who believed in though he offers salah and also this charity is a car also fast. Does the HUD is good to the neighbors love people is onif who does not drive does not have alcohol does not gamble, who helps others help the neighbors loves his parents. And for fun and for the best. Maybe you'll get 90% marks, maybe you'll get more than 900 out of 1000.

00:09:37--> 00:09:45

There may be other Muslims who may not be honest, but yet believe in the heat. But because they believe in the heat. They've got the $100 bill.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

They're passed in the House. They have what 501 marks already in that one compulsory important question. So logically, who would be higher in the examination, a person who got 500

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

And when marks are a person who's got five five Mark maybe 10 times 50 marks 100 months 200 marks. So what you have to understand, we have to understand what is righteousness.

00:10:10--> 00:10:52

And Allah says in the Quran in Surah Surah chapter number 49 verse number 13 yeah you are nasil inocula. Conoco means acronym own Sava Jana shoe Mahwah, kabyle Allah tada 14 Nakamoto in the left column in the lower limb, Kirby or humankind, we have created you from a single pair of male and female and have divided you into nations and tribes so that you may recognize each other not that you may despise each other, and the most honored in the sight of Allah is the person who has tequila, the criteria for judgment in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. It's not sex. It's not wealth. It's not color. It's not race. It is not gender. It is taqwa. It is righteousness, it is God

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

consciousness. It is piety.

00:10:55--> 00:11:41

So as you rightly said, who is IHS? Imagine our Creator, Almighty God has given us this life. Who's given us the clothing, the food, clothing, food besides the point how many of us, thank Allah for the water he has given us three. How many of us thank Allah for the air if we don't get for few minutes, we will die. How many of us so imagine if we are going to associate partners with the creator was given us all the facilities in life, who's given us the body was given a health who was given a food to eat or giveness cloth, and then you say you're righteous, the biggest thing you can do is Associate partners within your worship somebody is besides the Creator. So what you have to

00:11:41--> 00:12:00

understand what is righteousness is very important. You have to understand that very clearly. If you understand this, what is righteousness, you will come to know and you will realize that who should get more marks. So if you know this, then inshallah you will never object to the justice of Allah subhanaw taala Hope that answers the question.
