The next question is from Hamza from India.
Allah says in the Quran that he is not unjust in the least degree,
but I feel it is injustice to non Muslims who are more righteous than many Muslims to end up in hell
and also it is unjust to put Muslims in heaven who are not as righteous as some non Muslims.
This is a very important question.
But um that asked that Allah subhanaw taala is not unjust in the least degree.
And it is unjust to put non Muslims who are more righteous, into the hell and unjust for the Muslim you 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 never and just in the least degree that means Allah is the most just
he will not do even a minute
fraction of injustice.
a fair question is concerned that why non Muslims who do righteous deeds will be put into Hellfire
and Muslims were unrighteous? Why should they be put in heaven?
We have to understand that what is the meaning of the word righteousness, and who is the richest person?
For me, to make you understand, I'll give you for example.
total 199 US dollars
divided into 64 notes.
The 54 notes, if we total all the value of the 64 notes, it is $199. And I distribute the notes to shoot people, some get 10 notes, some get 20 notes, some get 30 notes,
some get less some get more.
A normal person who may not be aware of the notes and the value will never get 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
in the 64 notes, one note is $100.
One note is of $20.
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
of the Almighty God.
The number $20 bill
US dollar is the person who prays five times a day.
Then there's 110 dollar note that is to fighter notes. $10 note is for a person we give sarcophagus charity $5 note to the person who first and $5 note in the person goes for the remaining for all of you put together is $140. The remaining $59 or one $1 bill all put together as a 64 notes. So 59 notes are one $1. So just because somebody has 30 notes, or 30 bills, doesn't make him rich. If he had 30 bills of one $1 has only a value of $30.
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
all put together an internet dollar
that Verizon the Creator has put this formula
in he clearly mentioned in the Quran in Surah Nisa, chapter number four Muslim 48 and Surah Nisa chapter number 416. That Allah will forgive anything if he pleases, but he will never forgive the sin of ship. For anyone who has committed ship has strayed far away had done the most heinous sin. That means the biggest sin in Islam according to our Creator, Almighty God, Allah subhanaw taala is doing Sheikh is associate a partner with him is the biggest sin and the best thing you can do is tawheed believe in only one God and believe that there is no one was your worship, but Almighty God and Prophet Muhammad is the messenger for mighty God. So, He is the Creator. He said the rule we are
the people who are undergoing an examination.
Let me give one more example. That in certain tests
there are certain complicity question which you
should pass separately, like I did a medical examination in MBBS. Besides the theory papers, we advise lavos, orals, every student had to pass separately.
Separately, he may score 100, out of 130 paper, but in the viba was, if he fails his examination, I cannot argue this is the rule set. So, the compulsory paper in Islam is tied.
You should believe in one God and worship immortal and 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 with an example, that if there is a question paper,
the total marks of all the answers in the question paper, it totals to 1000 marks.
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,
you have to get minimum 501. If you get anything less than 501 out of 1000. You failed the examination. That means this one main question, which is compulsory. It is tauheed is the first pillar of Islam, that there's no one worthy of worship except Almighty God. And Prophet Muhammad is the messenger for mighty God. This is number one which carry 501 marks, then number two is Salah, maybe getting 100 marks,
would be giving charity Zakat, maybe 50 marks, then fasting in the month of Ramadan, that maybe 20 bucks. Then going forward, that may be the 10 months and other maybe 100 MOCA hundreds of more question to mark one month, three months, one one month. But if you get zero marks in the major question
of tawheed of the first pillar of Islam, you failed the examination.
So this is a test for the hereafter. Allah says in the Quran in surah book chapter number 16, verse number two, Allah the collateral Mata will it allow us created that and life to test which is good indeed, to Allah subhanho wa Taala has sent us in this world as a test for the hereafter. And the rules and regulations have been laid down in the Quran. In the last and final revolution. He kept on sending revelations, the moment it got corrupted, he sent a new revolution. He sent a new messenger, the moment it again got a new message and a new revolution. There were many revelations sent on the face of the earth by knowing you know only for Torah, the origin and the hora and the last and final
revelation is the glorious Koran. 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.
What is the maximum honesty? Okay, maybe five marks
or 1000 max Hi Max. He's very charitable. Okay maybe 10 marks is very kind 10 marks but out of 1000 months, the five marks 10 mil five marks 10 mark to mark one mark will not make you pass the examination.
You may be thinking okay doing 10 good deeds or 20 good deeds. But if that one person who has the $100 bill,
who passes in the viola was the compulsory question, the one who gets full marks in forehead. He is the person who ensure to pass the best would be a Muslim, who believed in thought he offers salah and also, these charities are also fast. Does the HUD is good to the neighbors love people is honest. What does not buy that don't have alcohol does not gamble, who helps others help the neighbors loves his parents, and so on and so is the best, maybe you'll get 90% marks, maybe he'll get more than 900 out of 1000.
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
they have 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
And one marks are a person who's got five five marks maybe 1010 1500 bucks 200 bucks. So what you have to understand, you have to understand what is righteousness.
And Allah says in the Quran in surah houda chapter number 14 and was number 13. Yeah you will know soon enough Allah Kanako means afternoon Sava jellico Shu mo wakaba illallah Tara funaki. When the lights come in the lobby, 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 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 consciousness. It is
So as you rightly said, who is I just imagine our Creator, Almighty God, who 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 who has given us all the facilities in life, who's given us the body who's given us health, who was given a food to eat a unit of cloth, and then you say you're righteous, the biggest thing you can do is Associate partners with him to worship somebody else besides the Creator. So,
what you have to understand what is righteousness is very important. You have to understand that very clearly. So if you understand the 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.
