hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa salam O Matic I'm going to be in the Mohammed
while he was talking to big main rubbish Ronnie Saudi, we usually determine the certainty of cold calling.
So from the lab, I mean, we've reached a portion of the book entitled The lab, it'll say it is the shower good utterances, or it can be translated as invocations of God is a translation of this called invocations of God by even am a male payment to Josie or even Kagan.
And he this book is primarily about zikr, in remembrance of ALLAH SubhanA data, as I mentioned, is broken up into roughly three parts right now we're still in the introduction. The second part is mentioning, you mentioned the football of vicar the benefits of remembering the last panel data. And then after that, he gives the actual Mathcad of the province of Allah when it was done, what are the things he used to say in different situations in his life? This is a very very, mashallah great book. So in the introduction, he talks about a number of principles that is important for us to understand and to learn as Muslims in regards to what is servitude in our understanding of
servitude, and different aspects of worship. So briefly, we covered you know, he starts with a DUA, he starts with a DUA, and the DUA is what he termed as the epitome of happiness, and the epitome of happiness, then he breaks it down.
He breaks down the particular pillars, if you will of this dua, and we've only reached the second portion. So the DUA remembers what the DUA was. It was three things that he said is the epitome of happiness.
Is it ask Allah to make you what?
To make you those either word Tia Shaka, we're either Tullia sobor. We're either as never sell for Listerine. He said if they were given they are
grateful, Shaka good. We're either to Leah Sabha. And if they were tested, they are patient with either as an Abba as Stouffer. If they've committed a sin, they do what?
seek forgiveness Exactly. And he says, Well, how old I said that on one was sad. Those three things are the epitome of happiness. So we went into the first way that Tia Shakur, and he mentioned that sugar has three types, there's three pillars of gratitude. And then he goes into patients were either totally sober, if he or she was to be tested their patient, then he gives the three pillars of patience, but he still, we were still we're still are in, we still are in the portion of patients, because when he talked about patients, he goes into being the one that is patient, if they're a patient, then their trial becomes a victory in kilobits minute to human hmm. And then he
talks about how, how, within this aspect of worship of patience, the trial becomes a victory but also the real patience is being given patients in the aspects of servitude and those things, which I don't want to say that you dislike, but it's the things that you do not prefer.
Right and he gave the example such as making will do in the hot weather. Is that something that you like? Or is it something that you prefer not to do?
You'd like so that is everybody? Is it servitude?
Is it an act of worship? It's an act of worship. If you make we'll do it in the hardware that you like hamdulillah
but we'll do in the cold weather
right that isn't that's more of a trial and he's talking it now. He said there's a shutting we'll call the shutting the shun is really the actions of a bothered Phil McHattie and those things which you may not prefer, then he moves on to talk about
here three things, that the how shaytaan he took me he talks about how shaytaan tries to take over the bad that take over the slave with the complete devotion and we mentioned a very important issue in worship. He says here, he says for the key fire to Tamil matter booty to Tamil when Naka summon Naka and that's a very important thing to remember. The key fire to time with the complete devotion comes a complete sufficiency when you
Have this complete devotion of Allah subhanho wa taala. You will feel the sufficiency when you perform the acts of worship before me in the Salawat and NACA summer NACA and the level of lack of devotion that you have you for the lack of sufficiency. So in other words, you get what you put in.
Whatever you put in is what you're going to get back from Allah Spano Dada, and rather Allah subhanaw taala will give you even much more than that the unknown little Follin Alvine he is the one that is of the great virtue and in even obeying, gives the verse Elisa Allahu be Catherine Abijah is Allah subhanaw taala not sufficient for him and we talked about a lot being sufficient for us as Muslims. Now he goes on to talk about the plans of shaytaan he says he says about that afterwards she says a bit like Sophia Rahim, Allah Tala were in at the time that I do who I had to whom kemei as a toddler, let's sue a regular life ILA for her the level the middle, he says if the servant or
the the enemy was to try to to rob him, try to rob him or take the individual that is negligent nom, which is appearance, which is something that will happen. He says when this happens, Leon he said this happens like the fact that the the I do say that Satan will try to take advantage and will take advantage of the Raju l often, in lawful means the negligence person.
He says the Anil Abdur Gulia. Bill reflets he was sure what he will have up.
He said because he served it has been tested with three things.
Three things we're still talking about patients, he says with negligence, with fulfilling of desires and with anger. These are the three things they've been tested with all of us. All of us have been tested with this. He says we'll do Hulu, abdomen heavy abueva
The Hulu Yeah, I do the whole I do mean Hadith, he said that the I do with the enemy will enter in the slave or will affect or influence the slave from these three things. These are the three doors that Satan will affect us from whether it's love for negligence, or whether it's shower desires or love of anger.
These three and he goes on to say Rahim Allah Tala wallow tell us, Abdul Murtaza Fela Bucha de la hoomins Afula while Abu della Holman shower while Abu della hoomin Wakaba. He says even if this this the servant was to try to to avoid these things, he said it has to happen. This will happen. He said level de la Holman was offline. It has he has to be Nick there will be an aspect of him being negligent in his lifetime. When that bought that home and shower and there will be a level of desire that he or she has. Well that would allow him and recover and there will be an aspect of anger that they will have woke up Kenna, admirable bashley sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in them in the huddle.
What are your home Auckland? What is the better whom are my harder for them? Yes, I'll be here I do Allahu Akbar who fina oka houfy. He says here in Adam. Basically Adam was the individual that is much more sophisticated than us and his Aqua was much more greater than us. And he was much more of a higher status than us. But with that, he was still
he fell into what he fell into Hatha Oklahoma or houfy that he fell into whatever he fell into that what shape on actually, the I do influenced him to fall into what he fell into. And what was that
eating from the tree eating from the tree because Satan What did he do?
He lowered him How did he lower him?
What did he tell him?
By telling him what
right or he will be from the
from the angels. Right? So did that make Adam angry?
We said the three right. Desire shower. There's a shower. Andy? What? The Afula here's the negligence, the Fallen desire and the anger. What about buffalo? Could it possibly be an aspect of negligence via desire?
Now that's the negligence, right? So we could, it could be that the negligence could be from the forgetfulness or the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala which shaitan Satan coming to him through the back of the door of Look, you're gonna be like two angels or you'll be forever you've ever the desire. So even that right there if we were to pause and think of what are those desires that make us negligent?
tires that make us negligent and that is where the jihad enough's comes in fighting the desires that are not beneficial for us. Then he says you're familiar Vaughn will be ferocious and hen me or my woman Aquila who mean Jumbunna arcmin Jumbie aqui IV ketchup ketchup flaten Fieberbrunn he's basically comparing his his for what what is the thought of an individual like atomization I'm with this level of alcohol and also that basically like his Aqua compared to ours is like a drop in the sea. Right? And he says or what I can I do a lot he lay Yeah. Hello. So Elan mini Illa Illa villa, I have a written workflow for you Okay, who will want to know who is the killer robber who is bad?
What analytical work but a typical walk it tagit
college, college Tohatsu like to offer the lighter Allah Wa Rahmatullah wa who will, who will know Pharaoh to whom and what is delicate Cooley is basically saying here
that the idea of Allah the enemy of Allah subhanho wa taala, will come to the movement in a different way and always try to affect him in love Ailton is not going to be beneficial to him, he's not going to come and try to benefit you in front of Allah subhanho wa taala. I loved it, it was awful I basically upon that deception and also negligence, so he will cause him for you. And he will cause him to fall into that. So he's basically giving back talking basically, about the same thing would happen to Adam in regards to all of us. And he says, With all of that, what will take place is it will cause him to be destructed and be destroyed. For fog that will fog will lie to Allah
Rahmatullah and he's in the virtue of Allah subhanaw taala and His mercy and His forgiveness and His pardoning is behind all of that it's waiting for you, it is waiting for you but when you fall into this knot if so, basically have no payments and when you fall into this and not if all of the mercy and everything from Allah subhanaw taala is waiting but you have to make the effort. So you have been okay miss showing you that look, all of these three things will take place these three things will take place when one doesn't have the sober this the lack of sober can come from one of these three.
But know that when not if this takes place, one of these three
that the Mercy The pardoning the love is waiting for you. It's waiting for you. So then I'm gonna claim Rahim Allah Tala continues on to say that the love will be added to his higher unfetter Hala Huberman abueva Toba
when Nothern. Willing Kisara will do well if Tecar Well, it's the identity. Well, it's the honor to be worshipped can legit e li or The Wyrm toggle Rory, what do I do with Tucker Robert E. Lee, B ma am condominial has an ad.
So now he's moving on to the third part of the DUA that he made which is is still far and if he was to, if he was to perform a sin, he or she would be
seeking forgiveness. So Abraham just naturally organically moves on to it. So you have to catch it. So he says there for either a law the law will be up to him later on for to Hello Who Babin abueva Toba
and this is another card another rule for us to understand your relationship to ratio to Allah. He said If Allah wants good for his slave, his servants he opens the door of Toba for him or her
Why is this important? What LISTEN to HIM and obey HIM said If Allah wants good
for the slave for his slave he opens the door of Toba for him
what the way that he said it what what do we understand from this
is not to
a blessing from stopping
to come to the realization
okay Allah's blessing him from stopping him from doing this and okay because they stopping
realize it realization
opposite you realize you're gonna mistake the yes for forgiving. So Allah the fact that you realize you made a mistake
is a blessing.
That's number one. And then blessing number two is what?
How many people make a mistake they don't care
how many Muslims realize they made a mistake, they could care less. Now, you realize you made the mistake. What tough good Allah will love you Levina either fat or low fat Schatten
or volume infozone That Corolla for stock for only the newbie him. Allah subhanaw taala matches the price
As he says, and those that if they were to follow fashion if they were to do a lewd act, sinful act, or if they were to oppress themselves, that could Allah they remember ALLAH for stuck for only the Nubian and they seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. So they remember and then they act upon it. So that in and of itself is a blessing. So when you think of this, this small BAP small aspect of worship, Chapter of worship, being seeking forgiveness from Allah, the fact that you're making an effort is the fact that you remember and you feel bad is a blessing. Nedum and then making the effort to raise your hands or just sing a stuck foot along with your by yourself when you're in a
bad place even write stuff. That's a blessing. Because there are people that could care less.
No. And that's important with the reality that you're making a making. You're seeking forgiveness from Allah. You feel bad at the moment and that's been okay and continues on to say, he says
fatter Hello, what's fatter? Ha, no, that's extra small Arabic on the waiver. All you should know the word Fatah. What is Fatiha?
What's the first chapter of the Quran?
So he says Allah says Fattah Hala who Bab Bab is door so he opens the door of forgiveness. And then he says when Nedum anatomist regret while in Kisa Yes, yes sir. Even Okay, I am Subhan Allah is a doctor of the hearts mashallah he uses different words to explain the situation of the soul and of the heart. So the first one is
Toba and remember translating it into English is not enough.
It's really not enough just what we just talked about was just Tober he says another Nedim is like regret. Now, you regret what you did.
When in Kisara in Kisara Kasara means to break something that is broken. So once the connection was broken and in this subject matter
like your heart is broken you fit your your your end when you when you think about it, it
yes, this is an aspect of guilt.
You feel so guilty like your heart crumbles. Your heart is broken from this inky Tsar was dual and dual means to debase oneself
to lower yourself right. Well if they are if they forgot what is forgot forget what is forget
the one that needs so the one that is poor Forgive me it's like poor right? In the Masakatsu
Lucara when Misaki so the forget is the one that is in need. So when you have a sense of regret, you reflect
and you feel that you're in need Yeah, Allah without you I wouldn't be I wouldn't be successful. Well, Matt tofi in Lebanon, my success is not without ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So when I commit this sin, I feel terrible. My heart is broken. I'm full of regret. I feel low I lower myself. When I prostrate I lower myself literally for the one that is the most high
and I feel that I need to be enriched
min. L. Ernie wel l. Mooney, the one that enriches and the one that is self sufficient by himself.
I am in need. I am poor and I am in need of Allah subhanaw taala right. He goes on to say well, it's the honor to be well it's the honor to be here. It's the honor is seeking help with him.
Right Yeah Can Naboo do? What yakka the stallion so he's saying you seeking help, was see the collage II Leahy.
He says Seth is truthfulness or of rashness are being truthful. Right? Ledger. To give you an idea of what ledger is, you would call someone that seeks asylum logic.
So what's the connection?
I want you to really, because when they speak, every word they use has an intention. But make no mistake, make no mistake, especially when you claim Make no mistake behind it when the scholars of the past read these books, Yanni. This is firstly it's from what's called istikhara
Not analysis, like they've read Yanni we can they're encyclopedias, they're polemics. So when they write it's from that even okay, there's a book called Zaton mod
in Arabic with I mean the Arabic that's well known of the books out of mind seven volumes
seven volumes he wrote it while he was on the donkey if
he were a traveling the books that they write sometimes our answers to questions but it turns into a book
The follow up your follow me like when these scholars right? They right Yeah, and he's Subhan Allah. So when he's saying all of these words, these words plus his the Arabic language, each word has a different situation and scenario of the heart.
So as deep so hear you saying was sick, allegedly so allergic, is the one that seeks asylum.
And then another book he has called resellable care he talks about
fleeing from Allah to Allah for Pharaoh Illa no fear to fear is like to to to escape. But he's saying federal either law escape from something to him. That's why he says from Allah to Allah.
What's the DUA the power source of lemon Jaya
Willem manager Minca
Yanni he says that there is no there is no retreating right or success
from you or what does it say middle gentlemen Jim in Minka in the ILEC
we translate that
No, no, like Ninja there is no no.
How would you call it
get translated in Arabic
manager manager is like to seek asylum or to seek help to retreat to someone who was a ninja mangia
survival right now and the Japanese survival right escaped survival mink from you except to you
and then listen to the process where who be cared
for but Minka.
Let's think about our own little beaker, linker
or whatever every see what is it what does it mean? What does it mean? Is that Arabic? What are all the BCAP Minca what does that mean?
just think about that.
Right? From you means from your eye that your punishment with you means with your beautiful names and attributes. So there's no Allah subhanaw taala who will sit with him and die.
So then he says What the Why murderer? And then he says in consistently seeking and beseeching you What do I do? What Takara ve lay he be mad, I'm condemning and has a net and then now he's saying and getting close to him from what is possible from the has a net
and make no mistake that anything that you practice in the deen of Islam
that you practice from what Allah has legislated is hasna
with that, Alaska to
right? So whatever has an A you do? It can be multiplied the Salah, how's it multiply where the process some say about the Salah?
25 or 27 times now so the action of good that you're doing multiply and this is so many opportunities and they will in here
so when he mentions all that He said He said what to cut Ruby la he meant I'm coming and has a net. Mata Koon will let mata coolutils say he had to be he sub Rahmatullahi
he says when he mentioned all these aspects of worship and devotion he says and coming close to him with what is possible from the good deeds Mata Kulu that which can that which can
metrical took that which that evil deed becomes a means
or for His Mercy
that's fifth of the religion Yeah. That is Wallahi Rama live okay Rama listen homelessness Allah Rahim Allah, Josie like he just sent me.
Yeah, and he Subhanallah he just talked about all of these different aspects
of worship seeking forgiveness, Toba, your heart is broken, regret any seeking refuge in Him.
All of this and that which makes that evil deed a means to His Mercy. How is that? Who can explain that?
Everyone understand my question.
A person can commit a sin
isn't that a level of motivation?
How many times do we talk to especially like the youth, or someone that's trying to get? Almost every one of us has a family member? That is not, you know,
it is probably not doing what they're supposed to do religiously, right? They're not praying, something happened to them. So and then when they try to come back, she Tomica Who do you Who do you think you are?
Right, she talked to who do you want to start praying now?
Right. And they have all of these things mentioned in Kisara. If Deckard, the heart is broken, they feel terrible. They're full of regret shaytan will come to them at that time. This is fake. What is your what do you think you are all those sins you committed? I was going to forgive you in one night.
Right Satan is going to come to but that's where it's important for individuals that you may see somebody you feel that they're down because of the sin, which is good. But you tell them no. You said we were talking about the fact that you feel that is a good thing Continue, continue to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala continue and ask him because Allah subhanaw taala will never let you down. He will never let you down. So that sin that he committed
was the means that and this is this is where we tie in to what pillar of Eman
that sin that you committed was what Allah used to show you something but are you continuing to search you see that you feel terrible, then you seek forgiveness? And that's why even Okay, he goes on to talk about then he's going to go on to talk about this and we'll talk about next week inshallah. How the sin is a means for Allah's mercy.
How the sin is a means for Allah's mercy and SubhanAllah. This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala did not make us like what are the form of creation? No.
He did not make us like the angels, Li Hickmott in Balikatan.
For a reason, a wisdom that is an amazing wisdom.
That we're just getting a jewel of the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala and will lie no one can bring that out except in Ireland.
No one can bring this out and just break step by step accepted on him, except the personal scholar.
Because they have like a sticker. They read the new source, they read the Kitab in the Sunnah, they go through it, they live it, they live it for life. Now I'm so we'll stop there shall no claim again, in conclusion,
talking about how shaitan will try to rob us and that is something that will definitely happen. How shaytaan will definitely try to rob us of our good deeds, and he will rob us by three doors and what are those three doors that you will come through?
negligence, negligence, right. And then he gave the example with Adam, he said if this took place with Adam,
it could definitely happen with with us because Adam was the best of creation. He was a prophet on Eastern. No. But then after that, he talks about how Satan will try to do this to us. And then he says, if Allah subhanaw taala wants good for his slave, he will open the door of what for him.
Forgiveness, and he mentioned the different types of ways or different things that will happen in our hearts that will cause us to seek forgiveness. And then he concludes by the beginning of the next portion which we'll talk about how those actions were done because of a sin. And that sin is the means that Allah uses to reach his mercy. May Allah spent Allah make us of those that seek His mercy, and always allow this beseeching and mercy to be continuous. And the last one to Allah make us are those that when we commit any sin, we remember Allah subhanaw taala and we seek forgiveness from him. And if we sit on Rania open and in secret, we lost $1 maker so those that continually read
his beautiful book of the Quran are clean, and especially this month of Ramadan to smoke coming of Ramadan to make us of those that are continuous and reading this book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Robina attina for dunya
not Allah Muhammad and failure Ramadan me Allah Mohammed leukemia Ramadan mean Allah.
Allah mostly most of that Fein if he saw
You're free Turkey again, as he's Jaco Yun mattina them generally with the chrome. Salah was going to be in a hammock while Ernie was happy as you might
