TAFSIR QURAN SURAH MUDDATHTHIR {NOVEMBER 21 TO 24 2013}



TAFSEER
SURAH MUDDATHTHIR
(THE MESSAGE OF MUHAMMAD IS UNIVERSAL)

DARS ONE
Nov 21 2013 / 18 Muharram 1435 Hijri

By Shaikh Abdullah Al Faisal

Edited by Abu Hafiza & Jansep2001

AYAH 1

O you (Muhammad SAW) enveloped (in garments)!

(Al-Muddaththir 74:1)

It was revealed in Makkah and the scholars of Islam did not disagree about the location of revelation even though we have Surahs with dual location.

The first revelation that was revealed to the prophet Muhammad (SAWS) was Surah Alaq

This happened while he was in the CAVE HIRA contemplating and the Angel asked him to read and he said he cant read three times; then the Angel squeezed him and said to him:

Allah said in Quran surah Al Alaq verse 1 to 5

Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists), Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)], Has taught man that which he knew not.

(Al-'Alaq 96:1-5)

The Prophet (SAWS) got terrified of this encounter so he went home shaking

Khadijah said to Waraqa, "Listen to the story of your nephew, O my cousin!" Waraqa asked, "O my nephew! What have you seen?" Allah's Apostle described whatever he had seen. 

Khadijah said to Waraqa, "Listen to the story of your nephew, O my cousin!" Waraqa asked, "O my nephew! What have you seen?" Allah's Apostle described whatever he had seen. Waraqa said, "This is the same one who keeps the secrets (Angel Gabriel) whom Allah had sent to Moses. I wish I were young and could live up to the time when your people would turn you out." Allah's Apostle asked, "Will they drive me out?" Waraqa replied in the affirmative and said, "Anyone (man) who came with something similar to what you have brought was treated with hostility; and if I should remain alive till the day when you will be turned out then I would support you strongly."

[Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 1, Hadith 003]

His wife Khadija (r.a) took him to her cousin Waraqa and narrated to him what happened to the Prophet (SAWS); So the prophet became a Nabi after these five Ayats were revealed to him in Surah Alaq

He was not a messenger yet

Abdullah bin 'Adi bin Al-Hamra reported that he heard Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) saying, "By Allah ! You (O Makkah) are the best of Allah' s land, and most beloved to Him. Had I not been driven away from you, I would have never departed (from you)."

(recorded by At-Tirmidhi, Ahmad, An-Nasa'i and Ibn Majah; At-Tirmidhi said, "Hasan Sahih')

The angel came to the prophet on the night of power (lailatul Qadr) and the majority of scholars agree it is the 27th of Ramadan.

One day the Prophet (SAWS) was working and he saw the same Angel appear to him on the horizon sitting on a chair.

So he got scared and went home and said to his wife cover me, cover me after he ran home and said cover me, cover me, Allah revealed the Ayats in Surah Muddaththir.

Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah: I heard the Prophet (SAW) describing the period of pause of the Divine Inspiration. He said in his talk, "While I was walking, I heard voices from the sky. I looked up, and behold ! I saw the same Angel who came to me in the cave of Hira' sitting on a chair between the sky and the earth. I was too much afraid of him (so I returned to my house) and said, 'Fold me up in garments!' They wrapped me up. Then Allah revealed: 'O you wrapped...and desert the idols before the prayer became compulsory.' Rujz means idols.

[Al-Bukhari (4925) and Muslim (161)]

When Allah (SWT) revealed this Surah, then he became a messenger of Allah (SWT)

We use the words prophet and messenger interchangeably but they are not the same
Prophet Yunus was a prophet not a messenger and so was prophet Yusuf (AS)

So what is the difference between the 2 terms?

1. A messenger has a shariah, a book but a prophet does not have a shariah or book

When prophet Yusuf (AS) went to Egypt, he had to follow the shariah of Abraham (AS). The prophet follows the shariah he found

This point I have just made, some scholars of Aqeeda don't accept it.

Their argument is Prophet Adam (AS) had a shariah and his shariah said Cain must hand over his twin sister to Abel and vice versa; so Adam had a shariah and if he did not have shariah, his life would have been chaos

He also had shariah in heaven; to eat and enjoy but not to eat from the haram tree

I asked my shaikhs why the tree was haram; they said eating from the tree makes you defecate and you can't do this in heaven so he had to be flung from heaven to do this

AYAH 2

Arise and warn! 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:2)

When Allah (SWT) said arise and warn, this is not just for Arabs, it means the whole of mankind and the evidence is:

In Surah Al Anbiya verse 107

And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) not but as a mercy for the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists).

(Al-Anbiya 21:107)

Abu Huraira reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: I have been given superiority over the other prophets in six respects: I have been given words which are concise but comprehensive in meaning; I have been helped by terror (in the hearts of enemies): spoils have been made lawful to me: the earth has been made for me clean and a place of worship; I have been sent to all mankind and the line of prophets is closed with me.

[Sahih Muslim, Book 4, Hadith 1062]

You can pray anywhere except in six place; Toilet, Grave, where animals are Tied, Garbage, Street where people walk, and on top of the Ka'ba

Arise and warn (meaning man and jinn)

Say (O Muhammad SAW) : "It has been revealed to me that a group (from three to ten in number) of jinns[] listened (to this Qur'ân). They said: 'Verily! We have heard a wonderful Recital (this Qur'ân)!  'It guides to the Right Path, and we have believed therein, and we shall never join (in worship) anything with our Lord (Allâh).

(Al-Jinn 72:1-2)

Some Jinn came from Basra (Iraq), the jinn where more responsive than mankind

The jinn will enter to the paradise like us

The virgins of paradise, no Jinn or human being had sex with them

In the Quran surah Al Rahman verse 56

Wherein both will be those (maidens) restraining their glances upon their husbands, whom no man or jinn yatmithhunna (has opened their hymens with sexual intercourse) before them.

(Ar-Rahman 55:56)

The virgins of paradise don't look at anyone except their husband, women of dunya look at other men, even commit zina with another man

The Huriya only want their husbands, 80% of the women in Darul Harb have committed Zina.

AYAH 3

And your Lord (Allah) magnify! 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:3)

Subhan Allah wal Hamdulillah wa la Ilaha Il Allah Wa Allahu Akbar, to magnify your Lord.

To single out your Lord for Ibada, do Dhikhr, establish the Salah, thank your Lord for the many blessings He has bestowed upon you.

To describe your Lord with His 99 names and attributes and to abstain from describing your Lord, with names He did NOT uses to describe Himself.

Christians accuse Him of having an affair, suicide, Jews accuse Him of being poor and they are rich.

Allah (SWT) said in the Quran Surah Al An'am verse 101

He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have children when He has no wife? He created all things and He is the All-Knower of everything.

(Al-An'am 6:101)

Only Muslims can magnify their Lord and only Muslims have the right Aqeeda.

Indeed, Allah has heard the statement of those (Jews) who say: "Truly, Allah is poor and we are rich!" We shall record what they have said and their killing of the Prophets unjustly, and We shall say: "Taste you the torment of the burning (Fire)."

(Aali Imran 3:181)

And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

(Genesis 6:6) King James Version

The Jews say: "Allah's Hand is tied up (i.e. He does not give and spend of His Bounty)." Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for what they uttered. Nay, both His Hands are widely outstretched. He spends (of His Bounty) as He wills. Verily, the Revelation that has come to you from Allah increases in most of them their obstinate rebellion and disbelief. We have put enmity and hatred amongst them till the Day of Resurrection. Every time they kindled the fire of war, Allah extinguished it; and they (ever) strive to make mischief on earth. And Allah does not like the Mufsidun (mischief­makers).

(Al-Ma'idah 5:64)

God rested on the 7th day and was refresh

It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

(Exodus 31:17) King James Version

Allah said in the Quran Surah Al imran verse: 110

You [true believers in Islamic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad SAW and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden), and you believe in Allah. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fasiqun (disobedient to Allah - and rebellious against Allah's Command).

(Al Imran 3:110)

Every Kafir commits the crime of blasphemy and to insult Allah (SWT)

AYAH 4

And your garments purify! 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:4)

You are not allowed to wear clothing which is stolen, it has to be from halal earnings

Then he (SAW) mentioned [the case] of a man who, having journeyed far, is dishevelled and dusty, and who spreads out his hands to the sky saying "O Lord! O Lord!," while his food is haram (unlawful), his drink is haram, his clothing is haram, and he has been nourished with haram, so how can [his supplication] be answered?

{Narrated by Muslim.}

Material that you are wearing has to be pure, if you perform Salah with leather made from pig skin, your salah is bautil (invalid) because you prayed with Najasah on you

Every leather is halal except dog and pig (Madhab of imam shafi) which is correct

If you pray with urine droppings or defecation on it, your salah is invalid

If the garment is not pure you are wasting your time

Magnify Your Lord, your garments purify

Narrated By Ibn Abbas: The Prophet once passed by two graves, and those two persons (in the graves) were being tortured. He said, "They are being tortured not for a great thing (to avoid). One of them never saved himself from being soiled with his urine, while the other was going about with calumnies (to make enmity between friends). He then took a green leaf of a date-palm tree split it into two pieces and fixed one on each grave. The people said, "O Allah's Apostle! Why have you done so?" He replied, "I hope that their punishment may be lessened till they (the leaf) become dry."

[Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2, Book 23, Hadith 443]

Namimah = tale bearing to carry news for people to split up (gossip)

It is reported from Hudhaifa that news reached him (the Holy Prophet) that a certain man carried tales. Upon this Hudhaifa remarked: I heard Allah's Messenger (SAW) saying: "The tale-bearer shall not enter Paradise."

[Al-Bukhari (6056) and Muslim (189)]

People use Pal talk and face book to gossip and assassinate characters of people

There are three spies operating one face book, to entrap people (1 in UK 2 in USA)
face book (fitna book)

One opened a room called "Jama vs Munafiqeen" other two are females

Nusayba McDonald is her name the other spy "veil Knight"

do not befriend these people on face book, and don't talk to them

Many have been sent to prison for many years because they were not wise

CONDITIONS FOR YOUR CLOTHING TO BE USED FOR SAAH

1- Your clothing should not be stolen.

2- Clothing should be Halal material i.e. leather made from pig skin

3- You are not allowed to pray in filthy clothing, with urine or defecation

Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri narrated: Whilst the Prophet (SAW) was leading his companions in prayer, he took off his shoes and placed them to his left. When the people saw that, they took off their shoes. When the Messenger of Allah had finished the prayer he said, “What made you take off your shoes?” They said, “We saw you take off your shoes, so we took off our shoes.” The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Jibreel (AS) came to me and told me that there was some dirt on them.” And he said: “When one of you comes to the mosque, let him check his shoes, and if he seeds any dirt on them, let him wipe them and pray in them.”

[Sunan Abu Dawud (1/175) No. 650 and Musnad Ahmad (3/92) No. 11895]

Mud is allowed, because mud is pure (we are created from black mud/Hama)

If your trouser has mud on it because you were in the field, you can pray with it
Don't come near to false deities/idols; we have idol worshippers in the Ummah today: Sufis Shias Barelvis.

And We did certainly create man out of clay from an altered black mud.

(Al-Hijr 15:26) Sahih International

AYAH 5

And keep away from Ar-Rujz (the idols)! 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:5)

The Prophet (SAWS) did not worship idols not even as a teenager, when he become prophet, he was not tainted with idol worship.

When he become a prophet, he wasn't tainted with idol worship, drinking alcohol, zina

Allah (SWT) purified his heart, sent angel Jib reel to wash his heart.

Have We not opened your breast for you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him))? And removed from you your burden, Which weighed down your back? And raised high your fame?

(Ash-Sharh 94:1-4)

Muhammad (SAWS) was saved from idols because Allah (SWT) purified his heart

You don't say "Asalamu Alaika" in your Tashahud, which is grave worship

Narrated Ibn Mas'ud  Allah's Apostle taught me the Tashah-hud as he taught me a Sura from the Quran, while my hand was between his hands. (Tashah-hud was) all the best compliments and the prayers and the good things are for Allah. Peace and Allah's Mercy and Blessings be on you, O Prophet! Peace be on us and on the pious slaves of Allah, I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and I also testify that Muhammad is Allah's slave and His Apostle. (We used to recite this in the prayer) during the lifetime of the Prophet, but when he had died, we used to say, "Peace be on the Prophet." 

(Bukhari -Volume 8, Book 74, Number 281)

"Asalam ala Nabee, warahmatullahi wabarakatu" is proper tahashud (as-salam alan nabi wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu)

Albani recommended to say "as salamu alayka" and wag their finger during tahashud the way dog wags its tail; these are the only two mistakes in his book

The prophet (SAWS) did not wag his finger

Shaikh Bin Baz only made One mistake: to allow American troops in the holy land (only mistake in his lifetime)

The drones that killed Anwar Awlaki came from Saudi Arabia, its used as a base to kill innocents Muslims

AYAH 6

And give not a thing in order to have more (or consider not your deeds of Allah's obedience as a favour to Allah).

(Al-Muddaththir 74:6)

don't give a gift in order to have more not every gift is innocent if you are a Qadi (judge) and they invite you to their home, the food is bribery a judge cannot accept gifts

Ibn Mas'ud was asked (by the people of Iraq), What is rashwa (taking bribes)? He replied, "This is suht (unlawful earning)." They said, "No, we meant in ruling." He then said, "This is the very kufr." Then he recited: " And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such are the Kafirun." (Al-Ma'idah 5:44)

[Tafsir al-Tabari (10/321) No. 11960, Tafsir Ibn Kathir (3/119)]

The judge who takes bribery to chop off hands/heads of wrong people is committing Major Kufr

When George Bush was campaigning against Al Gore, a lot of people donated to Bush, who made weapons; donators were manufacturer of weapons

When Bush won the election, they told him to pay it back, by buying their weapons

They earned 50 million by 1 million (donating to Bush campaign). Their donations were investments, not gifts,

Bush spent all the money in federal reserves on wars, those people were war mongers, people who do business in war not every gift is innocent

Don't give a gift with the intention to receive more

In the same Ayah, do not do good deeds, obedience to Allah (SWT), with the mentality that by you doing good deeds you are doing a favour to Allah (SWT)

O My servants, if the first of you and the last of you, and the humans of you and the jinn of you, were all as wicked as the most wicked heart of any individual amongst you, then this would not decrease My Kingdom an iota. O My servants, if the first of you and the last of you, and the humans of you and the jinn of you, were all to stand together in one place and ask of Me, and I were to give everyone what he requested, then that would not decrease what I Possess, except what is decreased of the ocean when a needle is dipped into it. O My servants, it is but your deeds that I account for you, and then recompense you for. So he who finds good, let him praise Allah, and he who finds other than that, let him blame no one but himself.

[Sahih Muslim (4/1994) No. 2577]

When you become pious, you are doing yourself a favour, and when you commit sin you are doing yourself a disfavour.

AYAH 7

And be patient for the sake of your Lord (i.e. perform your duty to Allah)!

(Al-Muddaththir 74:7)

Sabr means you do what is Fard, even though it is difficult for you like a thing; but abstain because it is haram

-Sabr means you abstain from a thing because it is haram

Narrated by Abu Qatadah and Abu Ad-Dahma' who said: We came to a man from the people of the desert and asked him: Did you hear a Hadith from the Messenger of Allah (SAW)? He said: I heard him saying: "Whosoever leaves something for the sake of Allah, then Allah the Mighty and Magnificent, will replace it with something better than it."

[Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 5, pg.363, No. 23124]

Sabr means you do not insult Allah (SWT) whenever a calamity befalls you.

And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.).
Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "Truly! To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return."

(Al-Baqarah 2:155-156)

Inna Lillahi wa Ilaihi Raji'oon (recited when calamity befalls you)

In India whenever a farmer borrows to plant crops, and rain does not fall, they commit suicide.

A Hindu cannot cope with calamity (worships a cow)

And seek help in patience and As-Salat (the prayer) and truly it is extremely heavy and hard except for Al-Khashi'un [i.e. the true believers in Allah - those who obey Allah with full submission, fear much from His Punishment, and believe in His Promise (Paradise, etc.) and in His Warnings (Hell, etc.)].

(Al-Baqarah 2:45)

Truly! Allah is with As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.).

(Al-Baqarah 2:153)

The knowledge of Jihad is Fard al Ayn

Since 2001, one Indian farmer has committed suicide every half hour : http://thediplomat.com/2013/07/why-do-so-many-indian-farmers-commit-suicide/

Kuffar commit suicide whenever a calamity strikes, they have no Sabr

Suhayb Ibn Sinan narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Wonderful are the affairs of a believer; for there is good in every affair of his; this is not the case with anyone else except a believer. If he has an occasion to feel delight, he thanks (Allah), thus there is good for him in it. If he suffers affliction, he endures patiently, which is good for him.

[Sahih Muslim (4/2295) No. 2999]

If good comes Shakara, he is thankful, if bad comes Sabar he is patient

When you speak the truth, you will be persecuted

By Al-'Asr (the time). Verily! Man is in loss, Except those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, and recommend one another to the truth (i.e. order one another to perform all kinds of good deeds (Al-Ma'ruf)which Allah has ordained, and abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds (Al-Munkar) which Allah has forbidden), and recommend one another to patience (for the sufferings, harms, and injuries which one may encounter in Allah's Cause during preaching His religion of Islamic Monotheism or Jihad, etc.)

(Al-'Asr 103:1-3)

So you need Sabr in order to not to apostate from Islam because when you speak the truth you will be persecuted; patience is a bitter cup only the strong can drink from it.

There are two Hizb in the world, Hizbullah and Hizbushaitan; the battle between Hizbullah and Hizbushaitan is a never ending battle.

Because of this Jihad is compulsory on you until the day of judgement.

On the authority of Jabir the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "... Jihad is compulsory on you until Judgment Day..."

[Al-Mu'jam al-Awsat al-Tabarani (5/95) No. 4775 and Abu Naeem al-Asbahani in 'Hilyatul Awliya' (3/73)]

And whosoever takes Allah, His Messenger, and those who have believed, as Protectors, then the party of Allah will be the victorious.

(Al-Ma'idah 5:56)

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihad died the death of a hypocrite.

[Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Chapter 47 Hadith 4696]

Shaitan (Satan) has overtaken them. So he has made them forget the remembrance of Allah. They are the party of Shaitan (Satan). Verily, it is the party of Shaitan (Satan) that will be the losers!

(Al-Mujadilah 58:19)

If you do not practice Dhikhr, you do not remember Allah (SWT)

Ibn 'Umar (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "Good will remain (as a permanent quality) in the foreheads of horses (for Jihad) till the Day of Resurrection."

[Al-Bukhari (2849) and Muslim (1871)]

Imraan ibn Hussain (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, ‘A group of people from my Ummah will continue to fight for the sake of the truth until the last of them fights the Dajjal (anti-Christ)

[Sunan Abu Dawud (3/4) No. 2484, Musnad Ahmad (4/437) No. 19934, Mustadrak al-Haakim (2/81) No. 2392]

Narrated By Muawiya: I heard the Prophet saying, "A group of people amongst my followers will remain obedient to Allah's orders and they will not be harmed by anyone who will not help them or who will oppose them, till Allah's Order (the Last Day) comes upon them while they are still on the right path."

[Sahih Bukhari (4/207) No. 3641]

It has been narrated on the authority of Jabir b. Samura that the Holy Prophet (SAW) said: This religion will continue to exist, and a group of people from the Muslims will continue to fight for its protection until the Hour is established.
[Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith #4717]

MUDDATHTHIR

{THE PLOTTING OF WALID IBN MUGHIRAH}

DARS TWO
Nov 23 2013 Saturday/ 20 Muharram 1435 Hijri 

AYAH 8

And when the trumpet is blown, 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:8) {Sahih international}  

Ibn Tayimiah said this is wrong, angel will blow Three times

The angel will blow in the trumpet Three times; the angel will not blow in the trumpet two times,

Ibn Tayimiah said the common notion that the angel will blow in the trumpet two times is wrong

This is correct opinion as:

1st Blowing - RAJIFA
The first blowing is to cause horror and terror and it is called Rajifa 

2nd Blowing - RADIFA
The second blowing is called Radifa. 

The purpose of this is for everyone to die and when israfeel; blows in the trumpet. 

Everyone will perish including all angels including angel israfeel 

Evidence is in Quran surah Ar rahman 55:26-27 

Whatsoever is on it (the earth) will perish. And the Face of your Lord full of Majesty and Honour will abide forever. 

(Ar-Rahman 55:26-27)

3rd Blowing - ZAJARA 

The third blowing is called zajara 

The purpose of zajara it is for everyone to be resurrected from the death 

These three blowing are made mention of by Allah in surah naziat 

Those who claim that there are 2 blowing have misunderstanding about the resurrection. 

1) Horror and terror 2) Death 3) Resurrection 

AYAH 9

Truly, that Day will be a Hard Day. 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:9)

Evidence is that it will be a hard day?

Hastening towards the caller, the disbelievers will say: "This is a hard Day." 

(Al-Qamar 54:8)

Then how can you avoid the punishment, if you disbelieve, on a Day that will make the children grey-headed (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)? 

(Al-Muzzammil 73:17)

People become grey headed when they see hardship and Allah (SWT) says that the children will become grey headed on Day of Judgment.

This is because it is a hard, horrifying, pitying day 

Mothers will drop their load (from horror and terror) and the woman giving suck to her baby will abandon it and people will be in a drunken state. That's why it is a hard day 

O mankind! Fear your Lord and be dutiful to Him! Verily, the earthquake of the Hour (of Judgement) is a terrible thing. The Day you shall see it, every nursing mother will forget her nursling, and every pregnant one will drop her load, and you shall see mankind as in a drunken state, yet they will not be drunken, but severe will be the Torment of Allāh. 

(Al-Hajj 22:1-2)

Which woman will abandon her baby; the horror and terror of the day will make the mother abandon her baby? 

A woman's natural instinct is to be merciful to her baby. But the horror of that day will cause her to forget that. 

Allah (SWT) said in the Qur'an Surah Al Anfal Verse 34 to 37

And why should not Allāh punish them while they stop (men) from Al-Masjid-al-Harām, and they are not its guardians? None can be its guardian except Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2), but most of them know not. Their Salat (prayer) at the House (of Allah, i.e. the Ka'bah at Makkah) was nothing but whistling and clapping of hands. Therefore, taste the punishment because you used to disbelieve. 

(Al-Anfal 8:34-35)

Verily, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to hinder (men) from the Path of Allāh, and so will they continue to spend it; but in the end it will become an anguish for them. Then they will be overcome. And those who disbelieve will be gathered unto Hell. In order that Allāh may distinguish the wicked (disbelievers, polytheists and doers of evil deeds) from the good (believers of Islāmic Monotheism and doers of righteous deeds), and put the wicked (disbelievers, polytheists and doers of evil deeds) one on another, heap them together and cast them into Hell. Those! It is they who are the losers.

(Al-Anfal 8:36-37)

That Day shall a man flee from his brother, And from his mother and his father, 

And Allah (SWT) said in Quran in Surah Abasa verse 34 to 37 

And from his wife and his children. Everyman, that Day, will have enough to make him careless of others. 

(Abasa 80:34-37)

On that day, people will run away from close family (Brothers, Fathers, Mothers, Children, and Wives) and he will say I have too much on my plate; I have to be concerned for myself. 

Your mother will say I carried you in my belly for 9 months, gave you suck, brought you up give me one of your Ramadan... you will run away from her.

Your wife who cooked your food, and attended to your sexual needs will want some of your salah and you will flee from her. 

You will say what if I need it myself... because the hell fire will be in front of you, even though the love between husband and wife is so strong, yet on that day,
they will flee each other. 

Side point>>if there is no love in the marriage, you shouldn't be in that marriage. 

And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect. 

(Ar-Rum 30:21)

Allah (SWT) talks about the love between spouses in above surah Ar rum verse 21 

These ayahs prove to us the Day of Judgment is a hard day Allah (SWT) mentions it in 74:9 

Truly, that Day will be a Hard Day. (Al-Muddaththir 74:9)

It is a hard day for the kuffar, the Muslims will admit their sins and forgive them, and the kuffar will deny their sins and be dumped in the hellfire. 

This Day, We shall seal up their mouths, and their hands will speak to us, and their legs will bear witness to what they used to earn. (It is said that one's left thigh will be the first to bear the witness)

(Ya-Sin 36:65)

Allah (SWT) will seal the lips of the kuffar and make their limbs testify; the first limb to testify against you will be the left leg; not only the limbs but also even the earth will testify. 

Allah (SWT) said in the Quran surah Az zalzalah: 

When the earth is shaken with its (final) earthquake. And when the earth throws out its burdens, And man will say: "What is the matter with it?" That Day it will declare its information (about all what happened over it of good or evil). Because your Lord has inspired it. That Day mankind will proceed in scattered groups that they may be shown their deeds. So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it. And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it 

(Az-Zalzalah 99:1-8)

The burden of the earth is the billion of dead bodies buried inside the earth and earth will testify for the salvation and condemnation of people. 

AYAH 10

Far from easy for the disbelievers 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:10)

It will be hard for the kuffar, the kafir who brags about the dunya (money, car, house, clothes, and women).
The kuffar will want to be turned into dust. 

Verily, We have warned you of a near torment, the Day when man will see that (the deeds) which his hands have sent forth, and the disbeliever will say: "Woe to me! Would that I were dust!" 

(An-Naba 78:40)

Abu Huraira said "[...but are communities like you... (Al-An'am 6:38)] Allah will gather all the animals on the Day of Resurrection, the wild animals, the birds and everything and the scores among them will be settled. Then, when the judgement between them is finished, He (Allah) will say to them (the animals), "Be dust.'' So they will all become dust. Upon witnessing this disbeliever will say, [...'Woe to me! Would that I were dust!' (An-Naba 78:40)]" 

[Tafseer Abdur Razzaq (2/46) No. 786, Tafseer al-Tabari (11/347) No. 13222, Tafseer Ibn Katheer (3/255)]

Qurtubi says Allah (SWT) will turn all animals into dust, the kuffar will wish on that day to be turned into dust like all the animals.

Evidence is in the hadith;

That says the evil deeds of Muslims will be taken from the them and put on the scales of the kuffar (Unbelievers). 

Narrated Abu Musa (RA) Allah's Messenger (SAW) said: On the Day of Resurrection, my Ummah (nation) will be gathered into three groups. one sort will enter Paradise without rendering an account (of their deeds). Another sort will be reckoned an easy account and admitted into Paradise Yet another sort will come bearing on his or her backs heaps of sins like great mountains. Allah will ask the angels though He knows best about them: Who are these people? They will reply: They are humble slaves of yours. He will say: Unload the sins from them and put the same over the Jews and Christians; then let the humble slaves get into Paradise by virtue of My Mercy. 

[Mustadrak al-Haakim (1/126) No. 193, Dhahabi mentions that this narration from Haakim is upon the conditions of al-Bukhari and Muslim]

That’s why Allah (SWT) says it will be far from easy for the kuffar. Because when you lived with them, they oppressed you. 

Why will this happen; they oppressed you in regards to your religion and spread the evil deeds. 

O man! Verily, you are returning towards your Lord with your deeds and actions (good or bad), a sure returning, so you will meet (i.e. the results of your deeds which you did). Then, as for him who will be given his Record in his right hand, 
He surely will receive an easy reckoning, And will return to his family in joy! 
But whosoever is given his Record behind his back, He will invoke (his) destruction,And shall enter a blazing Fire, and made to taste its burning.

(Al-Inshiqaq 84:6-12)

Is another proof that it will be a hard day for the kuffar? 

AYAH 11

Leave Me Alone (to deal) with whom I created Alone (without any means, i.e. Al-Walid bin Al-Mughirah Al-Makhzumi)! 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:11)

You are a loner and your journey is from the womb to the tomb; you came here alone and you will leave alone.

Abu Huraira (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: (1) A continuous charity, (2) knowledge by which people derive benefit, (3) pious son who prays for him." 

[Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari No. 38, Muslim (3/1255) No. 1631, Abu Dawud (3/117) No. 2880, al-Nasa'i (6/251) No. 3651, Tirmidhi (3/660) No. 1376, al-Darime (1/148) No. 559, Ahmad (2/372) No. 8831]

The hadith that says the two things will leave a person (Progeny and Wealth) and only his deeds go with him to the grave 

AYAH 12 

And then granted him resources in abundance. 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:12)

Allah says in 31:24 

We let them enjoy for a little while, then in the end, We shall oblige them to (enter) a great torment. (Luqman 31:24)

Allah lets them enjoy in the dunya for a while and then dump them in the hellfire forever 

Allah granted Firawn, Nimrod, and Qaroon wealth  but these people fought against the muwahidden 

AYAH 13 

And children to be by his side! 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:13)

Allah (SWT) also gave them children. Wealth and children are mentioned many times in the Quran 

Beautified for men is the love of things they covet; women, children, much of gold and silver (wealth), branded beautiful horses, cattle and well-tilled land. This is the pleasure of the present world's life; but Allah has the excellent return (Paradise with flowing rivers, etc.) with Him. 

(Al Imran 3:14)

The evidence is the surah 18:7 

Verily! We have made that which is on earth as an adornment for it, in order that We may test them (mankind) as to which of them are best in deeds. [i.e. those who do good deeds in the most perfect manner, that means to do them (deeds) totally for Allah's sake and in accordance to the legal ways of the Prophet SAW ]. 

(Al-Kahf 18:7)

Another evidence for wealth and children is in surah Al Kahf verse 46

Wealth and children are the adornment of the life of this world. But the good righteous deeds (five compulsory prayers, deeds of Allah's obedience, good and nice talk, remembrance of Allah with glorification, praises and thanks, etc.), that last, are better with your Lord for rewards and better in respect of hope. 

(Al-Kahf 18:46)

Allah (SWT) says leave me alone with him who I created alone.,  I gave him wealth and children (like Firawn, Nimrood, Qaroon, Abu Jahl, and Abu Lahab).

These kuffar used their resources to fight against Islam and muwahidden 

When you have wealth and children, they massage your ego 

AYAH 14. 

And made life smooth and comfortable for him!

(Al-Muddaththir 74:14)

Allah (SWT) gave us comforts in the life, a/c in the car, best of groceries, travels first class, 

After all that Allah (SWT) says this person wants more verse: 15 

AYAH 15 

After all that he desires that I should give more;

(Al-Muddaththir 74:15)

Noble Quran translation is not correct. it is (Yatmaauu) greed and not desire 
side point >> if you don't live with Arabs, you won’t learn the intricacies of the language. 

A hadith comes to mind on reading verse 15.

In this world, people die from hunger and starvation, and they also die from obesity. 

Sheikh saw a documentary about the 1 tonne man(almost weight of a cow) 
In this world, we have enough to satisfy everyone's needs but not their greed 

WORLDS HEAVIEST MAN ONE TON http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wngU0R1Eg4k

Some people are ungrateful and can’t even say words of graciousness if you give them charity. 

They want more and more 

This is the nature of man, and the one who has a small car, wants a bigger one. 

The one who has a bigger one wants two 

Allah (SWT) says even after I have given man so much, he wants more because nothing can fill the greed of bani Adam but dirt in his belly. 

Ibn 'Abbas and Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "If a son of Adam were to own a valley full of gold, he would desire to have two. Nothing can fill his mouth except the earth (of the grave). Allah turns with mercy to him who turns to Him in repentance".

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

AYAH 16 

Nay! Verily, he has been stubborn and opposing Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.).

(Al-Muddaththir 74:16)

Why is he opposing our signs when We gave him so much?

Why did Allah (SWT) reveal surah Quraish 

The Quraish had two trade caravans in the winter and summer. 

But with all the commerce, Allah (SWT) blessed them, they became ungrateful to Allah (SWT) and did not thank Him. 

>>side point >> mentality of man 

And He gave you of all that you asked for, and if you count the Blessings of Allah, never will you be able to count them. Verily! Man is indeed an extreme wrongdoer, a disbeliever (an extreme ingrate, denies Allah's Blessings by disbelief, and by worshipping others besides Allah, and by disobeying Allah and His Prophet Muhammad SAW).

(Ibrahim 14:34)

This linked to surah 74, verse 14-15

Man is an ingrate, denies Allah's blessings by worshipping others besides Allah (SWT)

Richard Dawkins became rich and famous by denying Allah (SWT)
What an evil man. 

Surah 100 also talks about the ungratefulness of man,  man is vicious, atrocious and unscrupulous in his greed for wealth. 

Verily! Man (disbeliever) is ungrateful to his Lord; And to that fact he bears witness (by his deeds);And verily, he is violent in the love of wealth. 

(Al-'Adiyat 100:6-8)

The author of the ' GOD ILLUSION' will have the book testify against him on Day of Judgment. 

As-Saud = mountain in hellfire that is slippery 

AYAH 17

I shall oblige him to (climb a slippery mountain in the Hell-fire called As¬ Sa'ud, or to) face a severe torment!

(Al-Muddaththir 74:17)

AYAH 18

Verily, he thought and plotted

(Al-Muddaththir 74:18)

So who is He? The word he is Walid ibn Mugheerah 

Why did he plot against the prophet? Why the malice? 

AYAH 19 

So let him be cursed! How he plotted!

(Al-Muddaththir 74:19)

AYAH 20 

And once more let him be cursed, how he plotted!

(Al-Muddaththir 74:20)

AYAH 21 

Then he thought;

(Al-Muddaththir 74:21)

AYAH 22 

Then he frowned and he looked in a bad tempered way;

(Al-Muddaththir 74:22)

AYAH 23 

Then he turned back and was proud;

(Al-Muddaththir 74:23)

AYAH 24 

Then he said: "This is nothing but magic from that of old;

(Al-Muddaththir 74:24)

AYAH 25 

"This is nothing but the word of a human being!"

(Al-Muddaththir 74:25)

AYAH 26 

I will cast him into Hell-fire

(Al-Muddaththir 74:26)

What did Waleed Ibn Mughirah plot? 

Saqar is a place in hell that you cannot get out of

The RAND Foundation Corporation is a think tank that is involved in fighting Islam and Muslims

COMMUNISM is dead and the new enemy is ISLAM

They need a bogie man to keep the taxpayers docile and to tell them that the government is protecting them, otherwise the bogie man will get you. 

The RAND Foundation corporation, waleed ibn mughirah was the head of the
RAND Corporation in the time of the prophet 

RAND Foundation Corporation has always existed to fight Islam and muwahidden 

Waleed ibn Mughirah suggested to the quraish slandering the prophet
because every year in the pilgrimage, Muhammad (SAW) will call pilgrims to Islam, so lets call him a poet. 

They said we won’t call him that, cause the poets don't practise what they preach. 

They dumped that idea because Muhammad (saw) was a walking Quran. They said let us call him a madman. 

When a madman speaks, people don't want to listen to him, but people were captivated by the words of the prophet (SAW) and to the Quran . 

So they couldn't call him that either. 

The RAND Foundation corporation, Waleed ibn mughirah (father of Khalid ibn waleed) suggested to call Muhammad (SAW) a magician and to discount the Quran as a word of the man 

The Quraish agreed to call the prophet a practitioner of magic and that his word is magic too. 

why did Waleed Ibn Mughirah have malice, enemy and hatred for the prophet to the extent that Allah (SWT) says he thought n plotters (verse18) an Allah cursed him twice(verse19-20), looked in a bad way (verse 22)  (statement not clear)

The reason was that he was envious of the prophet (SAWS) and wanted to be the prophet. 

He was from banu makhzumm, a powerful clan, the custodian of the kabah. 
He was rich as well. 

They had malice because why did not Allah (SWT) reveal His message to the two strong men from two strong cities 

KAFIRS ARE DICTATORS, THEY EVEN WANNA TELL ALLAH WHO TO BLESS 

And when the truth (this Qur'ān) came to them, they (the disbelievers in this Qur'ān) said: "This is magic, and we disbelieve therein." And they say: "Why is not this Qur'ān sent down to some great man of the two towns (Makkah and Tā'if)?"

(Az-Zukhruf 43:30-31)

First man is Walid ibn Mugheerah = Makkah

Second man was Amr ibn Umayr = Taif

The kafirs want to tell Allah who to bless w prophethood they are so evil. 

Neither those who disbelieve among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) nor Al-Mushrikun (the disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, idolaters, polytheists, pagans, etc.) like that there should be sent down unto you any good from your Lord. But Allah chooses for His Mercy whom He wills. And Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty. 

(Al-Baqarah 2:105)

The prophet's past was clean and had no bad record (baggage).

He was called as-sadiq and al-ameen even before the prophet hood. 

A prophet can’t have any bad points from the past otherwise they will have baggage from the past to deliver the message of the Creator 

You need to shut up and accept who Allah choose 

Neither those who disbelieve among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) nor Al-Mushrikun (the disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, idolaters, polytheists, pagans, etc.) like that there should be sent down unto you any good from your Lord. But Allah chooses for His Mercy whom He wills. And Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty.

(Al-Baqarah 2:105)

Allah knows best where to disburse his barakah. 

TAFSIR SURAH MUDDATHIR:
THE 7 GATES OF HELLFIRE

DARS THREE
Nov 24 2013 / 21 Muharram 1435 Hijri  

He took the path of assassinating the character of the prophet (SAWS)
When people don't like what you say they go on the path of character assassination, even Fox News (spews) did this to Imam Anwar (RA)

The Makkans gathered and decided on what they will slander the rasul (SAWS) and so they decided to say that he was a magician

Al Waleed died like a dog in the battle of Badr and was killed and so were Abu Jahl, Utbah, and Umayyad too.

Al waleed will be in hell fire for forever; Allah said in surah 74:26 that He will dump him in SAQAR

AYAH 26

I will cast him into Hell-fire

(Al-Muddaththir 74:26)

The rasul (saw) told his sahaba to target the leaders of Quraish, this was in accordance to Allah's commandment in Surah; At Tawbah 12

But if they violate their oaths after their covenant, and attack your religion with disapproval and criticism then fight (you) the leaders of disbelief (chiefs of Quraish - pagans of Makkah) - for surely their oaths are nothing to them - so that they may stop (evil actions). 

(At-Tawbah 9:12)

Because once you take out the leaders the rest will be like headless chickens; you should get rid of the think tanks of kufr

Al waleed ibn mugheera had the same problem as iblis (Satan)

He wanted to tell Allah (SWT) whom to bless, because Allah (SWT) preferred Adam (AS) over him

And said to Allah (SWT) that because He preferred Adam over him 

That he will mislead all his progeny and that he won't bow down to someone
who Allah (SWT) created from black mud altered

He was not intellectually convinced about Allah's choice

He said, "Never would I prostrate to a human whom You created out of clay from an altered black mud." 

(Al-Hijr 15:33) Sahih International  

He (iblis) wants to tell Allah (SWT) whom to bless over other people who act like this are the Jews

They couldn't handle the fact that Allah (SWT) made the last and best prophet to be from the lineage of Arabs and not the lineage of Ishaq.

They also want to tell Allah (SWT) whom to bless; but Allah (SWT) chose Muhammad (SAW) to be prophets from the Arabs

Allah (SWT) said in the Quran Surah Al Baqarah verse 129 

"Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own (and indeed Allah answered their invocation by sending Muhammad Peace be upon him ), who shall recite unto them Your Verses and instruct them in the Book (this Qur'an) and Al-Hikmah (full knowledge of the Islamic laws and jurisprudence or wisdom or Prophet hood, etc.), and sanctify them. Verily! You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise." 

(Al-Baqarah 2:129)

This is was because of the Dua of Abraham (AS) in Al Baqarah verse 129; So Allah (SWT) answered his dua and so the Jews have a problem with this

The third set of people who have a problem with Allah's decision are the kufaar of Quraish

Al Waleed Ibn Mugheera wanted to be the prophet because he was rich and he will embark on a trading trip with 100 loaded camels

So he thought his wealth should have been a measure for Allah (SWT) to choose him as a prophet

And when there comes to them, a sign (from Allah) they say: "We shall not believe until we receive the like of that which the Messengers of Allah had received." Allah knows best with whom to place His Message. Humiliation and disgrace from Allah and a severe torment will overtake the criminals (polytheists, sinners, etc.) for that which they used to plot. 

(Al-An'am 6:124)

They used to say that they would only believe in him, after Allah (SWT) reveals a book to them like He did to the rasul (SAW)

When I was travelling to UK from Africa, I invited a white kaafir woman to Islam 
but she put the condition for a shahadah to be that Islam should allow her to have four husbands else, she won't embrace Islam so some people put a condition on their Islam

Allah (SWT) told us in the Quran that He knows where to choose His rasul.

WHAT IS SAQAR

AYAH 27

And what will make you know exactly what Hell-fire is? 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:27)

There are 7 gates of Hell and has 19 angels guarding it (SAQAR)

AYAH 28

It spares not (any sinner), nor does it leave (anything unburnt)!

(Al-Muddaththir 74:28)

AYAH 29

Burning the skins!

(Al-Muddaththir 74:29)

AYAH 30

Over it are nineteen (angels as guardians and keepers of Hell).

(Al-Muddaththir 74: 30)

Some famous historic personalities will be in SAQAR;

Nimrod will be in Saqar; because he threw Abraham (as) in the fire in this world. 

The Pharaoh who claimed to be Allah and his adviser Haman, Abu Lahab and
Abu Jahal will also be in Saqar.

Al Waleed Ibn Mugheera will be in Saqar,

Saqar: is a place if you enter it, you can't come out and or no intercession can be given to you

AYAH 31

And We have set none but angels as guardians of the Fire, and We have fixed their number (19) only as a trial for the disbelievers, In order that the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) may arrive at a certainty [that this Qur'an is the truth as it agrees with their Books i.e. their number (19) is written in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] and the believers may increase in Faith (as this Qur'an is the truth) and that no doubts may be left for the people of the Scripture and the believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease (of hypocrisy) and the disbelievers may say: "What Allah intends by this (curious) example.?" Thus, Allah leads astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And none can know the hosts of your Lord but He. And this (Hell) is nothing else than a (warning) reminder to mankind

(Al-Muddaththir 74:31)

Allah told you that the 19 angels guarding the saqar would be a fitna for the kufaar

When the rasul (SAW) told them about the 19 Angels
Abu Jahl laughed at him and said that they can gang up against them and beat them up

That they can't be able to dump them and so Allah (SWT) said that the number
19 was made for it to be a fitnah

Allah spoke about the number 19 in the books of the Jews and Christians and so this will be hujjah for them know that Muhammad was a true prophet and an increase in faith for the believers

The word 'host' in the above ayah means the angels of Allah
Only He knows how many angels there are

The rasul (SAWS) saw a ka'aba in the heavens in which 70,000 angels visit daily and those who come never ever come again to visit the ka'aba

Rasullullah (SAW) said: “The Ka’bah is surrounded by seventy thousand angels.

They seek forgiveness and blessings for those who make tawaf.” (Ibn Majah)

The rasul (saw) made hajj only once in his lifetime and he was the best Muslim
Allah Said in the Quran surah At Tur verse 1 to 4

By the Mount; And by the Book Inscribed In parchment unrolled And by the Bait-ul-Ma'mur (the house over the heavens parable to the Ka'bah at Makkah, continuously visited by the angels);  

(At-Tur 52:1-4) Muhsin Khan

THE 7 GATES OF HELLFIRE

1. JAHANNUM

Allah (SWT) spoke about it in surah 9:81 that is first HELL

Those who stayed away (from Tabuk expedition) rejoiced in their staying behind the Messenger of Allah; they hated to strive and fight with their properties and their lives in the Cause of Allah, and they said: "March not forth in the heat." Say: "The Fire of Hell is more intense in heat", if only they could understand! 

(At-Tawbah 9:81)

If a person enters Jahannum he can come out with intercession of the Rasul (SAWS) and so when they all go out part will go out

So when Ibn Taymiyyah said this he meant just a part of hell and not all of it.

2. LADHAA

Allah spoke about this in 70:15-16

By no means! Verily, it will be the Fire of Hell! Taking away (burning completely) the head skin! 

(Al-Ma'arij 70:15-16)

3. SAQAR

I will cast him into Hell-fire And what will make you know exactly what Hell-fire is? It spares not (any sinner), nor does it leave (anything unburnt)! Burning the skins Over it are nineteen (angels as guardians and keepers of Hell). 
(Al-Muddaththir 74:26-30)

4. HUTAMA

Allah (SWT) spoke about this in surah Al Humuzah in Ayah 4 to 9:

Nay! Verily, he will be thrown into the crushing Fire. And what will make you know what the crushing Fire is? The fire of Allah, kindled, Which leaps up over the hearts,)
Verily, it shall be closed in on them,) In pillars stretched forth, (i.e. they will be punished in the Fire with pillars, etc.). 

(Al-Humuzah 104:4-9)

5. JAHEEM

Allah spoke about this in Surah An Nazi'at in Ayah 37 to 41: 

Then, for him who Tagha (transgressed all bounds, in disbelief, oppression and evil deeds of disobedience to Allah). And preferred the life of this world (by following his evil desires and lusts), Verily, his abode will be Hell-fire; But as for him who feared standing before his Lord, and restrained himself from impure evil desires, and lusts.  Verily, Paradise will be his abode. 

(An-Nazi'at 79:37-41)

Because he restrained from his evil desire then he will enter in Jannah (Paradise)

6. SA'EER

Allah (SWT) spoke about this in surah Al Mulk Ayah 10 to 11:

And they will say: "Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we would not have been among the dwellers of the blazing Fire!" Then they will confess their sin. So, away with the dwellers of the blazing Fire.

(Al-Mulk 67:10-11)

If only Mankind has used their AQL (intelligence), they would not end up in ALL SA'EER

SA'EER is translated as the BLAZING FIRE 

7. AL HAWIYAH

Allah (SWT) spoke about in other Ayah in Al Qari'ah verse 8 to 11: 

But as for him whose balance (of good deeds) will be light, He will have his home in Hawiyah (pit, i.e. Hell). And what will make you know what it is?  (It is) a hot blazing Fire! 

(Al-Qari'ah 101:8-11)

-Angels who are keeping watch over Al Hawiyah are called Al Zabaniyah 

- These Angels have hands that are made of IRON 

The Scholars of Tauheed also mention that inside the 6th Gate of Hell: Al Sa'eer there resides Scorpions and Snakes 

Our topic today is not the description of the HELLFIRE; hence, we are not going into details about HELL 

AYAH 32

Nay, and by the moon, 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:32)

The Moon is very important to the Muslims because we follow the LUNAR CALENDER. 

and Kaffar use sonar calendar.

We use the Moon to commence our fast in the month of Ramadan 

We also use the Moon to celebrate Eid Ul Fitr. 

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "Fast when you see it (the new moon) and break the fast when you see it. If it is cloudy, then make Sha'ban complete with thirty days." 

[Al-Bukhari (1909) and Muslim (1081)]

If we do not see the Moon because of Cloud Cover we consider Sha'baan to have
30 full days and then begin to fast. 

Some Scholars say that every country should follow the sighting of the Moon in their own locality. 

Where as other Scholars say that the whole world should follow the Moon Sighting in MAKKAH 

Every year the Muslims have two EIDS 

because the Scholars have differed on this issue 

The more accurate opinion is to follow the Moon of MAKKAH in order to unite the
UMMAH OF MUHAMMAD (SAW)

Because we begin fasting with the sighting of the Moon and end our fasting with the sighting the Moon, the evil Christians print pamphlets claiming that Muslims
worship the Moon. 

We refute the lie of the Christians with the following AYAH of SURAH FUSSILAT 

Allah said in the Quran Surah Fussilat ayah 37:

And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Prostrate not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate to Allah Who created them, if you (really) worship Him. 

(Fussilat 41:37)

AYAH 33

And by the night when it withdraws, 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:33)

The Night is important to Muslims because ALLAH (SWT) spoke about the Night in many Ayahs in the Holy Quran. 

Allah (SWT) even commanded us to seek refuge from the night, because people use the night to perpetrate evil deeds 

Allah (SWT) spoke about in the Quran Surah An Naba Verse 9 to 11:

And have made your sleep as a thing for rest. And have made the night as a covering (through its darkness), And have made the day for livelihood. 

(An-Naba 78:9-11)

The purpose of the night is for the Muslim to take rest and the purpose of the day is for the Muslim to earn his livelihood 

AYAH 34 

And by the dawn when it brightens,

(Al-Muddaththir 74:34)

The Dawn is SUB'AH and it's; called Salat Al Fajr. However the Dawn ALLAH (SWT) is speaking about here is the SALATUL AL DUHAA

Therefore after you complete praying your Salat Al Fajr, you stay in your place and after the break of dawn you pray Salat Al Duhaa 

According to the Hanbali Madhab the Salat Al Duhaa and Salat Al Ishraaq are the same thing, you may pray from 2 to 8 Rakah for Salat Al Duhaa. 

Abu Hanifa said that Salat Al Duhaa and Salat are Ishraaq are two different Salah, however the correct opinion is the Hanbali view 

AYAH 35

Verily, it (Hell, or their denial of the Prophet Muhammad SAW , or the Day of Resurrection) is but one of the greatest calamities. 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:35) Mushin Khan 

To Deny the Hell Fire or to Deny the Prophet hood of Muhammad (SAW) is one of the greatest calamities because those who deny HELL will end up dwelling in it for ETERNITY 

AYAH 36

A warning to mankind, 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:36)

AYAH 37

To any of you that chooses to go forward (by working righteous deeds), or to remain behind (by committing sins), 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:37)

- Mankind has been given a Choice to GO FORWARD by doing HALAL or
LANGUISH BEHIND by doing HARAAM 

AYAH 38

Every person is a pledge for what he has earned,

(Al-Muddaththir 74:38)

Every person is a pledge for what he has earned. 

This Ayah means that you and your deeds cannot be separated. 

Mankind will be judged and then decompensate according to their DEEDS 

Hadith Qudsi 17: 
On the authority of Abu Dharr al-Ghifari (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (peace be upon him) is that among the sayings he relates from his Lord (may He be glorified) is that He said: O My servants, I have forbidden oppression for Myself and have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another. O My servants, all of you are astray except for those I have guided, so seek guidance of Me and I shall guide you, O My servants, all of you are hungry except for those I have fed, so seek food of Me and I shall feed you. O My servants, all of you are naked except for those I have clothed, so seek clothing of Me and I shall clothe you. O My servants, you sin by night and by day, and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness of Me and I shall forgive you. O My servants, you will not attain harming Me so as to harm Me, and will not attain benefitting Me so as to benefit Me. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as pious as the most pious heart of any one man of you, that would not increase My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as wicked as the most wicked heart of any one man of you, that would not decrease My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to rise up in one place and make a request of Me, and were I to give everyone what he requested, that would not decrease what I have, any more that a needle decreases the sea if put into it. O My servants, it is but your deeds that I reckon up for you and then recompense you for, so let him finds good praise Allah and let him who finds other that blame no one but himself. 

{It was related by Muslim (also by at-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah)}

Your DEEDS will be accepted if two conditions are found, if they were done with the right intention and if they were performed according to the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (SAWS) 

AYAH 39

Except those on the Right, (i.e. the pious true believers of Islamic Monotheism); 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:39)

Those on the RIGHT mentioned in the above AYAH are the companions of PARADISE 

And when ALLAH (SWT) speaks about those on the LEFT, they are the companions of the HELLFIRE 

AYAH 40

In Gardens (Paradise) they will ask one another, 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:40)

This is an example of the beautiful Quranic Language 

AYAH 41

About Al-Mujrimun (polytheists, criminals, disbelievers, etc.), (And they will say to them): 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:41)

The people of PARADISE will inquire about the people of the HELLFIRE 

The people of Paradise will see a man in Hell, and ask him why he is in Hell

when he was their teacher in the Dunya. The man will reply, saying he would tell people to do Halal but himself would do haram in secret 

Usamah (RA) heard Allah's Messenger (S.A.W) saying: 'A man will be brought and put in the hell fire and he will circumambulator (go round and round) in the hell fire like a donkey of a (flour-grinding mill), and all the people of the hell fire will gather around him and will say to him, 'O so-and-so! Didn't you use to order others for Al-Ma'roof (Islamic monotheism and all that is good) and forbid them from Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief, and all that is evil)?'  That man will say, 'I used to order others to do Al-Ma'roof (Islamic monotheism and all that is good) but myself never used to do it, and I used to forbid others from Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief, and all that is evil) while I myself used to do Al-Munkar'"

{Sahih Al Bukhari 92 hadith 49} & {Trans Sahih Al Bukhari Vol 9 book 88 number 218}

AYAH 42

"What has caused you to enter Hell?"

(Al-Muddaththir 74:42)

AYAH 43

They will say: "We were not of those who used to offer their Salat (prayers).

(Al-Muddaththir 74:43)

AYAH 44 

"Nor we used to feed Al-Miskin (the poor); 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:44)

- The Hanbalis use Ayah 43 as their Hujjah if you do not pray you are a KAAFIR.

- When the people did not pray, they did not give Allah (SWT) His right. 

- When the people did not pay their Zakat, they did not give the people their right 

AYAH 45

"And we used to talk falsehood (all that which Allah hated) with vain talkers. 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:45)

AYAH 46

"And we used to belie the Day of Recompense. 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:46)

AYAH 47

"Until there came to us (the death) that is certain." 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:47)

AYAH 48

So no intercession of intercessors will be of any use to them. 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:48)

- Those who do not agree with the Hanbalis about being a Kaafir if you do not pray argue that the people who end up in SAKR are those committed four offences, that is they did not pray, they did not pay zakat, they ridicule the Deen and they deny the last day . 

- These people say you must commit all four offences go to the AL SAQAR 

- The Hanbalis refute them by saying that the first thing ALLAH (SWT) will account for on the LAST DAY is the SALAH 

- The correct opinion is that of the HANBALI madhab because of SURAH

TAUBAH, AYAH 11

But if they repent, perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give Zakat, then they are your brethren in religion. (In this way) We explain the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail for a people who know. 

(At-Tawbah 9:11)

- Allah put down three conditions in order to accept converts in DEEN, they must repent, pray Salah and pay Zakat. 

"Until there came to us (the death) that is certain."

(Al-Muddaththir 74:47)

- YAQEEN in Arabic is certainty. The word Yaqeen in this AYAH means DEATH 

- ALLAH (SWT) uses the word Yaqeen to describe DEATH because every single one of us will DIE 

Verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) will die and verily, they (too) will die.

(Az-Zumar 39:30)

- Our journey in this life is from the WOMB to the TOMB. And we cannot escape it. We were alone in the Womb and we will be alone in the Tomb

AYAH 48

So no intercession of intercessors will be of any use to them. 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:48)

- In order for you to gain the intercession of Muhammad (SAW) you need to establish your SALAH. 

- The child who dies before puberty will be allowed to intercede for his Muslim parents 

AYAH 49

Then what is wrong with them (i.e. the disbelievers) that they turn away from (receiving) admonition? 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:49)

Have you seen him who takes his own lust (vain desires) as his ilah (god), and Allah knowing (him as such), left him astray, and sealed his hearing and his heart, and put a cover on his sight. Who then will guide him after Allah? Will you not then remember? 

(Al-Jathiyah 45:23)

- People ignore the admonition of ALLAH (SWT), because some people worship their evil and corrupted desires instead of ALLAH (SWT)

- It is very difficult for the Mushrikeen to practise the ISLAM that we are inviting them to because they are addicted to their evil and corrupted desires.

and make no divisions in it (religion) (i.e. various sects in religion). Intolerable for the Mushrikun , is that to which you (O Muhammad SAW) call them. Allah chooses for Himself whom He wills, and guides unto Himself who turns to Him in repentance and in obedience.

(Ash-Shura 42:13)

- They are addicted to every Haram under the Heavens 

AYAH 50

As if they were frightened (wild) donkeys. 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:50)

AYAH 51

Fleeing from a hunter, or a lion, or a beast of prey 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:51)

- The Mushrikeen are running away from GUIDANCE like a donkey being chased by a Lion. 

- The part of the guidance that they are running away from in the SHARIA 

AYAH 52

Nay, everyone of them desires that he should be given pages spread out (coming from Allah with a writing that Islam is the right religion, and Muhammad SAW has come with the truth from Allah the Lord of the heavens and earth, etc.). 

(Al-Muddaththir 74:52)

And when there comes to them a sign (from Allah) they say: "We shall not believe until we receive the like of that which the Messengers of Allah had received." Allah knows best with whom to place His Message. Humiliation and disgrace from Allah and a severe torment will overtake the criminals (polytheists, sinners, etc.) for that which they used to plot.

(Al-An'am 6:124)

- These Kaafirs want to get special treatment before they embrace Islam .

AYAH 53

Nay! But they fear not the Hereafter (from Allah's punishment).

(Al-Muddaththir 74:53)

AYAH 54

Nay, verily, this (Qur'an) is an admonition,

(Al-Muddaththir 74:54)

AYAH 55

So whosoever will (let him read it), and receive admonition (from it)!

(Al-Muddaththir 74:55)

AYAH 56 

And they will not receive admonition unless Allah wills; He (Allah) is the One, deserving that mankind should be afraid of, and should be dutiful to Him, and should not take any Ilah (God) along with Him, and He is the One Who forgives (sins).

(Al-Muddaththir 74:56)

And you will not, unless (it be) that Allah wills, the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists).

(At-Takwir 81:29)
