Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said an authentic hadith on the authority of unassumingly Malik Radi Allahu Anhu

00:00:08--> 00:00:47

and an OB salatu salam, Paul legis. To gain more layers to chemo Emmanuel Abdel Fattah you're stuck in Malibu Malaya stuck a macabre who had to use the payment lease and who, whether he had the whole slew Raju loon al Janetta laitman Jarrah, who late mu Giada, who, but whatever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in this authentic hadith recorded by Muslims, and it is great it hasn't. The faith of a servant is not up right until his heart is upright, and his heart is not upright until his tongue is upright. And a man will not enter paradise if his neighbor is not secure from his evil. So the beautiful this is important for masculinity, obviously, because firstly, the

00:00:47--> 00:01:27

province of Allah Azza wa sallam is capitalizing on what makes the heart firm. But then he goes through the process, because he says, firstly, that this will not take place at the faith, it will not take place until his heart is upright. So the man will not be there until the heart is upright, and the heart will not be there until the tongue is upright. So the tongue does have a relationship with the man, how he speaks to people how he talks, the language language he uses. That's important, which that's important. Because it leads us to the first important point that your faith is affected by what you frequent. Your faith is affected by what you frequent. So if you're a man, if you're a

00:01:27--> 00:02:06

young man, and you have friends that are always using vulgar language, or they're listening to vulgar language, or they're watching things that have vulgar language, and a vulgar lifestyle, vulgar, meaning that which is late Jews, they're using curse words. They're being very derogatory towards women, they're downplaying women. They're talking about certain things that men should do. For instance, you know, talking about the body count, how many women has he been with, or they're backbiting one another, or they're teasing one another, and they know what hurts the person's feelings or doesn't make the person feel good about themselves, it lowers their, their self esteem,

00:02:06--> 00:02:49

you may be a bully, that's where the things that you say, can affect you. Not even the fact that it affects the other person, but it affects you because you frequent those things with your senses with your listening. And you start to speak, the same way that you hear people talk on television, or if you're listening to music, that what you frequent is going to affect your Eman. That's very important. So it's important for us to watch it we frequent and this is the wisdom behind the Salawat. The five prayers, if a young man continues on the five prayers, he's doing something with his body, he's mentioning the name of Allah subhana, WA Tada. He's remembering how Allah has

00:02:49--> 00:03:29

actualized things in his life. He's thinking of His names and attributes, between those five prayers, how he lives his life, that's when he's in his dunya. That's when he's in the test. So if he's remembering Allah subhanho wa taala, he's remembering the goodness that he's been, how good he's been to him. He's good to other people. He says what he knows Allah loves, he uses his tongue and he speaks and acts in a way that's upright, you are what you frequent, even when we the word identity comes from identities, which means that which is frequented you are what you what you do, as someone mentioned. So this is very, very important that you have to look at what you frequent,

00:03:29--> 00:04:08

what are the things that you do on a daily basis and have no doubt that it will affect you particularly of that how you speak. And the second point is what you listened to, we talked about that social media, etc. What are the things that you what are the things that you allow your senses to partake in, that you allow your senses to encounter? What are you listening to? What are you watching? Where are you going consistently, even when you go to certain places, know that it can have an effect on you. If you go to the gym, and you're looking left and right, and it's affecting you make no mistake, that that can affect you to the degree to where you think about things, you

00:04:08--> 00:04:52

start to go online, and you watch things that are not permissible for you. It's wasting your time. It's distracting you and it's conditioning you to live and step away from your purpose. And the third point is how your actions affect your event. This is a very important point in regards to Eman. The scholars talk about this. Firstly, how actions are Amen how the things that we do is any man is Amen. It is a direct sign of our Amen. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, Well Matt can Allah Julio Leah II Manickam Yanni salata como some scholars would say here, that the Salah the prayer is immense because it is one of the strongest signs of Amen. It is the second pillar of

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

Islam. So stay on your prayers, gentlemen, know for a fact that once you leave the prayer, it is going to affect your masculinity.

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

See, because it affects your connection with Allah, therefore lessening the remembrance of Allah. And as a result, you will not be in tune with the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala doing the things that Islam mandates of you, because from leaving the prayer, it affects your heart by not doing things that Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with your firstly start to leave off the prayer, which means you're leaving off will do, which means you're leaving off waking up in the morning for the sake of budget. Rather it's for work, you're leaving off you've abandoned, leaving certain tasks that you're doing to go and pray, which already diminishes your prioritization. And it's very

00:05:42--> 00:06:12

important for a man to be disciplined. One of the characteristics of discipline is prioritization. Another characteristic of discipline is that they define distinguish and dominate the distraction that we cover in our mastermind University. Of course, So may Allah subhanaw taala make you those that speak and adjust fashion, upright, clean fashion as a man to where people can trust you and being around you.
