Somebody wanted me to lie but it got to me the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon all of you, a famous Tabby, a scholar that comes after the generation of the companions, named Pollock Ibn Habib. He mentioned a very beautiful statement during the time of turbulence and fitna of his time not even happy with someone that died about 100, you know, a little before 100 years after he died off, and he was a party and some say a scholar at the time of the Omega dynasty. Now this time was when the ruler was an individual by the name of Abdul Malik and Marwan and his general the individual right under him, that was in control of the military affairs, if you will, was hijacked in the use of and

00:00:53--> 00:01:37

this was something that was known about hijama. Yusuf was very rough individual. But talk even Habib was someone that was there doing this turbulence when one of the individuals wanted to basically overthrow that government named even if they call it pfitzner to a bunch of fitna to the trial and tribulation time of even if, or the trial and tribulation time of the reciters because many of the Quran reciters followed him in a shot, and the results did not turn out. Well. In any case. poliquin Habib made a statement during this time of turbulence, and it stays till this day. He said either workouts in pfitzner Pharaoh habitat What if the fitna was to occur the troubles and trials was to

00:01:37--> 00:02:23

occur then repel it with tuck walk repel it with piety for so intimate taqwa he was asked what is tuck one and he made the famous statement that many of us may know he said, untapped matter before it islandwood Aminullah touches the web Allah, we're in touch to look at mouse yet Allah Allah Newman, Allah to half to half with Allah. He said, tuck what is to act in accordance with obedience to Allah upon light from Allah, hoping for his reward, and to leave off the sins of Allah subhanho wa Taala, disobeying Allah, with light from Allah, having fear of his punishment. Now this statement is very, very beautiful, because it shows the importance of knowledge and action. The first thing he

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

says untapped matter to act.

00:02:26--> 00:03:04

Better Atilla to act in accordance with worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala to worship Him, to be obedient to Him, but this obedience can only come, I learned orunmila that when this obedience occurs, it has to be obedience that is backed up and that is that is sanctioned by knowledge of the Quran and knowledge of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that is the newer because that nor gives you ball Sierra, it gives you insight, whether it is physical or whether it is something that we understand the knowledge of how we implement Allah subhana wa Allah says in the Quran, in the chapter of use of God had he said in the other room in Allah Allah bossier, and a woman in Tibet

00:03:04--> 00:03:47

I need and Subhanallah he went out and I mean and when she came, I lost it kind of with Allah tells the Prophet say that this is the way that I call to. This is my stability, other Illa I call to Allah, I level zero. I call upon knowledge, I call upon that knowledge that with it in a place of darkness in a time of darkness in a time of fitna, it will bring you through it will, it will shed light upon that which is true to you will follow that light and stay away from the darkness of character, the darkness of a fighting inwards, fighting the darkness of killing each other or fighting each other, all of that darkness that leads to shaped on being happy with what is going on.

00:03:47--> 00:04:00

You see the light and you follow that light. That's the boss you know, when you're calling to Allah subhana wa tada and a woman it's about me and those that follow me. So that is the north from Allah because if someone acts without any Nord,

00:04:01--> 00:04:39

or acts without any nor they will be the people that lead to possibly cause more harm than good in the name of what they would claim to be Islam. So that's what that's the first thing he says untap my diabetologia I didn't know them and Allah tada giusto Allah and you hope for the reward of Allah. When you work in obedience and you act in accordance to the Quran and the Sunnah, you are not guaranteed that Allah Subhana Allah will accept it from you because something of your intention or things you may have been negligent of that is up to Allah subhanho wa Taala you don't know. So from the the humility of the Muslim is that they still hope for God's reward. You're never certain if

00:04:39--> 00:05:00

that action has been rewarded, if you've been given reward for that action, but you hope for his reward. That is a manifestation of the amande. He said to act in accordance to worshipping Allah, upon light from Allah hoping for his reward. That hope is one of the actions of worship. That is one of the actions of worship and then he

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

says untitled cannot see Attila Island would mean a lot to hafele and Kabbalah and to leave off to abandon to avoid disobeying Allah upon light from Allah fearing his reward. So here, it is another action. It is an action of cuff, it is an action of leaving off abandoning that which you know, is sinful. And you know it's a sin because of the nor that you have taken the knowledge of Islam. That is the knowledge that you have taken, or we can say the North is the E man. It is the actions. That is what you have learned about Islam that that is impermissible. You may have been doing it before, but you realize it is impermissible and you may be addicted to it, or have some type of connection

00:05:45--> 00:06:32

to it. But you gradually leave it off, you gradually leave it off, because you know the norm is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the ultimate reason is that you fear his punishment and that hope is another action or example of a badger of servitude from the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this statement is very comprehensive in regards to not only just obtaining knowledge for the sake of knowledge, it is obtaining knowledge to act upon that knowledge. And then he gives two examples that have hope in Allah and fear in Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is Subhan Allah result that results in an individual being tukey being a person that is pious, and that leads to a person being humble.

00:06:32--> 00:06:47

May Allah subhana wa Allah make us of those that practice piety, that practice of mindfulness of Allah subhanho wa Taala leading to humility and making us humble before him and before his creation is not going to head on with somebody come up with a better catch. Thank you.
