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

The first question on WhatsApp is from Maria from Bangladesh.

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

And he's asking the question,

00:00:07--> 00:00:21

why Allah punishes people in the grave, as there is a possibility that this person may get acquitted on the Day of Judgment. Similarly, a person who's not punished in the grave

00:00:23--> 00:00:27

may be found to be guilty on the Day of Judgment.

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

The question posed by realizes that

00:00:33--> 00:00:40

why does the last Marsala punish the person in the grave? Maybe on the day of judgment will be acquitted? So Won't it be injustice?

00:00:41--> 00:00:48

And maybe we will not punish a person in the grave and he may be held responsible on the Day of Judgment.

00:00:50--> 00:00:58

So isn't this wrong? Allah subhanaw taala says in the Glorious Quran, in Surah, Allah Moran, chapter number three was the morning define

00:00:59--> 00:01:05

that coolness in Xactimate, every fall shall have a taste of that.

00:01:07--> 00:01:11

And your final recompense will be on the Day of Judgment.

00:01:14--> 00:01:26

And anyone who is saved from the fire, and is admitted into Jenna into the garden has achieved the purpose of this life.

00:01:28--> 00:01:34

For this life is good goods and charters of deception.

00:01:35--> 00:01:46

II Allah subhana wa Taala in lm ronchamp number three was 185 is telling us that the final recompense will be on the Day of Judgment.

00:01:48--> 00:02:18

That means the final hyssop Kitab, the final tally of the reward and punishment will be on the day of Deadman. That means, if you have to get a reward, you may get part in this dunya in this world, part in the grave, but in the Hereafter, or if you have to get some punishment, you may get part in this world, but in the grave, but in the Hereafter, but

00:02:19--> 00:02:30

the Hereafter is the final recompense the final tally of all these three put together, would it be what you deserve, as a reward, or as a punishment? The question as badly as

00:02:31--> 00:02:55

that what if you're punished in the grave? And in the day of judgment? You acquitted? So Won't it be injustice? Or if you're not given a punishment in the grave and you held responsible Day of Judgment? Would it be wrong? What are the realities of your question may be correct for a nominal judge. What if you and me are a judge, where you are human beings? He fails to realize that Allah subhana wa Taala is in a game.

00:02:56--> 00:03:32

Do you think Allah doesn't know? What is the reward every human being deserves? And what is a punishment every human being deserves for you and I are normal human beings, we may not be aware, or you and I are a judge, then we will not know until we are the lawyers and we know what's happened. But Allah subhanho wa Taala is Malika Medina, he is the Master of the Day of Judgment, he has him again, he has knowledge of the future, he knows exactly what will a person deserve as a reward, and what will a person deserve as a punishment.

00:03:34--> 00:03:49

And our beloved prophet masala Sallam said that, for an unbeliever, whatever good deeds he does, his reward will be in this dunya he will not get any reward in that era in the life after that.

00:03:51--> 00:04:33

As for the punishment, it may be part here, part in the grave part in the hereafter. As for the believers, both the reward and the punishment can be part in this world part in the grave part in the hereafter. So, Allah subhana wa Taala has ilma game, Allah knows that this person will get 50 points of punishment. So he may give 10 point in this world 20 points in the grave and maybe 20 points in that era, it cannot be possible that the person receives 10 points punishment, and Allah will give 20 points punishment in the game, it is impossible, unless him again, he has knowledge of the future, he cannot do such a thing you and as a human being can do that. So this question is

00:04:33--> 00:05:00

logical for human beings, but not for Allah subhanaw taala because, again, he knows exactly what is the total punishment every human being will deserve, what is the total reward that will deserve and all these three put together is the total punishment he deserves. And that's the reason it's mentioned in the Quran, that on the Day of Judgment, no one will object to the justice of Allah subhanaw taala neither the Muslims, neither the

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

non Muslims, even the

00:05:02--> 00:05:24

even the unbelievers, even the non Muslims who would be put in the hell, they will never say that they have got injustice they will only ask Allah that why don't you give us one more chance and Allah will say it is too late. This was in brief the answer to the question
