and as the ad from verse 38 to 41 Allah subhanho wa Taala says for a moment Baba wetheral higher the dunya then ninja Hema, he admitted that whoever
transgresses and prefers the life of this dunya this worldly life then the jakeem in the Hellfire will be his abode elaborate that is from that. And then he goes on to say subhana wa tada what a man hoffa Palmer OBE one,
sign up for an agenda he admitted, that whoever fears the position of his Lord supanova asylum, and forbids himself itself from the the whoa from his desires, then fairly the agenda, the paradise will be as a board, look at the difference between there to be Allah grant us all the agenda and protect us from the hellfire. The second point, he mentioned, Rahim, Allah was the Mahadeva of the of the people to go against the desires of the people. And this happens, as he mentioned, with two ways, not following them if they go astray.
And that going astray behind their desires, one of the two, they go straight in and you follow them, or they want you to go astray, they want to pull you with them, then you must be strong, and not follow them. And this if you want to
be able to defeat your own home your own desires. And if we look at this, for example, a great example of that would be the hijab of the women today. The hijab in the Muslim world today, it started to what fate?
And it slowly but surely was it sounds bad. But that's that's the reality, unfortunately, this is what's happening now is the hijab is going slowly, slowly and then it's almost not there. And why is this? Because where's the pressure coming from?
The peer pressure, the pressure of society to be in with the latest, and the the MOBA, the newest, any trends and what have you, so she wants to look at Madrid, and she wants people to accept her. So she follows this, she follows shavon she followed what the people want, and she doesn't follow what alone. It's difficult, no doubt. But this is the trap of a chiffon. He's calling her to this. So she does, she doesn't give him what she gives him to this, obviously, this is what happens. She's not successful, because she's giving in to the desires of the people. And now it's even become to the extent where you'll find women wearing pants and shirt and wearing a scarf. And this is hijab,
we had the one from Bahrain with the tight skin tight clothes on running, and then the Olympics and she's my job, Alicia, she wear hijab, I say she's better than the other ones, no doubt about that. But still, it's not a it's not a hijab at the end of the day. And this is what the shaytaan is pulling the women now. And so you know that you are actually making Islam look even worse. And I'll tell you what happened to me when I was in a Dao organizations to them, they call me there was two French
doctors who were students who were about to become doctors, I think, last year, and they had like an exchange program between the students who came from Sudan and someone to France, what have you. So there was a lady and a man, the man, he had a big problem with the hijab.
And he said, You know, one of the things I can't understand, he said, Why do they have to cover their heads? And I said, Oh, hijab is watching this and this news, he said, but the thing is, he said, they have so much makeup on. And their clothes are so tight. Anyways, he said that they said that it doesn't make sense for them have something in their head is what's left is all she has any from the rest of her body. It's clear to everybody she has pure make full makeup on. So it's it's it makes no sense. I shouldn't you know what I see here, right? So this is bad Islam, as they were doing, they're falling in shape, and it's not from Islam. It's not accepted. So now you'll get the
bad misconception that the women are giving about Islam. And we she has to appropriation that way. So this is one of the good examples. We have the law. We see the law but we see unfortunately, that the Muslim woman have fallen into and we say Alhamdulillah hamdullah. close look at the next page we're about to start as far as the umbrella. So certainly Santa came before is supposed to have a loss, Matan has showed us the path of good in the path of evil. So we can what follow that which is good and stay away from that which is evil. Allah subhanho wa Taala says And so within the first 153 one crrt was the demon for tiberiu. Well added debreu a civil why. But the photocopy Commons really,
this is my past. See, barely This is my pad, the street pad, so follow it.
Do not follow the paths. Why? Because it will make you go straight from the path of Allah subhanaw taala make you go straight. And that's where the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
He also in the Hadith, he mentioned as high as well, he made a cup, a straight line on the ground, and then straight lines next to it. And he said, this is the path of a law. And next to it, our paths on the end of each of them is a shape on calling people to this. So this now, you'll see that the importance of knowing the straight path and following the straight path, and Hamdulillah, it's clear, the straight path, it will always be clear. And the path of the majority mean the criminals, these small paths will always be clear as well, a law set in stone, and I'm also in reverse 55. He said, look at that he can ofosu. But it has to be has to be limited to me. And now in this verse
Muslim, I said, like this, we will, we'll make it very clear, no, firstly, I had to make these verses very clear to you. Why. So the path of the criminals, the evil people very clear. So the correct path will always be clear. And those who are evil, their path also will be very clear. May Allah guide us all to the to the straight path.
The third point that he mentioned his last point, and when we're talking about any struggling, it's ourselves in how to be successful, and striving, it's our own desires. The third point you mentioned is that we have to fight and strive against the ship on and against his followers. And most of the time, it makes it very clear in the in the Quran, that shaytaan He's our enemy, he's in the ship on likoma do
verily that they bond is an enemy for you. So take him as an enemy. And then he says in Amalia drew his bow, they barely he calls his party or his followers to be what? Via kuno, when it's hard to say, so they can be from the people with the Hellfire, so that he will go behind a bar. He doesn't want to be by himself. He wants to have as many people as he can. So it's why he's trying to pull as many of us as he can with him. So it also makes it makes it very clear. So you have to realize that you're at war with ship on all day.
And this war starts from the time you wake up in the morning, and I always give the example of
the alarm clock when it goes off in the morning. He's supposed to get up and go where's the man?
We're supposed to do?
Go to the machine
what's the first thing she says you?
reset it, you know, just keep going keep on all of us fall into this. Why? Because it will come to you because she thought he knows he's a 14 he knows very well to come to you. is you know, don't forget, he said you have to go to work. You have to rest your family to take care of to take care of your family. You need to have better rest. You didn't go to sleep early enough. Last night. You need more sleep since why this alley fools us. And you may say you know what, and you're half asleep. You know what you're right. You know, you turn off the alarm clock and say oh, maybe I'll even say it for like 45 minutes later because yeah, I need more sleep. You're right. Eight hours a day. They
said you haven't had eight hours. So I have to go back to sleep. So this is where it starts. From from the alarm clock goes off Southern where it starts. You go out of the house in the morning. Where man What do you see it on the street? Nice women in hijab cover. You can't see anything from them. You see a lot of fitna now she thump pulls your eyes like it's like a magnet. What are you gonna do war with she had fun, but he's your enemy. Always remember. And we just tried to take it last month I made it clear in sort of verse six. He's trying to pull you in the corner. And that's how to say your issue can be from the people that Hellfire Allah protect us from that.
And and it's not going to be easy, but I'm also fine with that I made it clear to us.
And so the uncle booth in verse 69 when he said, well let the Ninja rufina nsdn home subarna inala myrcene allow me to clear that those who strivers barely work guide him to our ways. So he was trying for a lot, he will help you and He will assist you. And as we go back to the importance of understand the Arabic language at the end of the verse, he said
in Allah in this decade, and the lamb also switek eat again to ferment that matter Martini that Verily Allah will be with the doors of good. So if you do have a glow, sometimes he will be with you and he'll guide you to his ways.
The time we always started at 810 or eight or 815 we started
so we was it.
We have five more minutes.
Okay, obviously because we're only 2.5 I don't think we're gonna finish the maybe in the next lecture, we'll continue but inshallah we'll finish. We'll do point five and then we'll start if there's any questions answered inshallah. The fifth point is we finished half open and we have half of them to go in Sharla.
The fifth point is,
continue going on, what are
searching with our hearts to understand the meaning
meanings of laws names and attributes, searching with our hearts to try to understand the meanings of the laws names and attributes. And we look into the foreign we see a law always when he describes himself with these beautiful names and with these attributes what is the goal behind this the goal is going to come unfortunately we find a lot of Muslims have gone astray on this path who made them go astray who call was straight chiffon so they won't get the benefit which I'm gonna mention shall later. So, we find people that want to stray people will say they say there was no names no attributes so others will say yes, he has names but the names have no meanings. And these people
will try to make the people go straight in the path of velocity mattala other people say his attributes are like those of the
other say no, he has attributes but he has names but he only has seven what are the rest of them? Crazy stuff he it's mind boggling where they get this this this stuff from? And they believe this? Why is this a ship honking cut off the path for us to fill our hearts with Allah subhanaw taala How do we know the greatness of velocity velocity? How do you know the greatness of a law through his names and through his attributes? Allah is is the original name all the other names is any other difference between for example, Rama and can a lot is there any other difference? Same thing. But when you see all the different names, the 99 names are more than that. The names of Allah subhanho
wa Taala it shows you how great he is. And the out of themselves they have this in Arabic language. For example,
the acid the lion have been in names as they have an Arabic
the safe the sword because something also great, what how many of you have 100 names so also it also means that he has these beautiful named attributes to show his greatness to his creation and them and what's meant by these names these attributes is for us to act upon them that just to say them is for them to have effect on our lives. For example, when we know a lot of Simeon Garcia he is the all hearing they all seem subhana wa tada How does it How does this affect our actions?
How does it affect our actions? Now if somebody wants to sit down and wants to look at that, which is how long on TV or the internet whatever have you It's so easy now to do that like when we were younger, when you have to do something before it will be very difficult. Before I was missing anything so I wasn't held accountable. But if you want to do something was it was very difficult to find it. Now very easy. Any or TV it's right there in front, very easy. So now nobody's in the room with you. You can look at it which is haram you can do that which is wrong. But you remember that? Allah subhanaw taala he's looking at you he sees what you're doing. This has the effect on your
mind. That's the goal. Then the other names we know the last Matata he is the Kareem he's our generous donor. He's the All Merciful. He's the Latif is kindness, the afford all forgiving. When somebody has all these beautiful names, these attributes. How does this affect your heart? It fills your heart with the love of Allah subhanaw taala it attaches your heart to nasukawa to Allah. Now like the other religions, we have to go a long way to go to the priest and confess You know, this is a long pattern to get your sins forgiven, have that Islamic go straight to Allah subhana wa Tada. So now this attaches your heart to a lot and it fills your heart with the love of Allah subhana wa
Tada. That is the fifth point. And I will stop there. Because
Okay, it's up to you guys. The other points are not as long as the other ones the other one.
These ones are actually much shorter than other ones anyways. Okay, so the sixth point is any reflecting on the blessings in the kindness of Allah subhanho wa Taala
reflecting on the blessings in the kindness of Allah subhana wa Tada. And from these blessings are so many. And as most of us no one ever were to try to count them, we can never count them. There's too many of them. And one of the ones I want to mention as an example, but also kind of what that says, For example, and sort of the videos will be on full SQL. Find out too soon. In yourself, do not notice do not reflect on the name of the blessing you have in yourself. A loss isn't sorted. And so to remove all of the uncheck
Hola, como esta mal abasolo and either polylang madej Quran. So he is the one that he's created us and he has made for us, the hearing the scene and the hearts Why do you not reflect that do not think we do not have to school and you're not thankful for all these blessings. So we reflect on these blessings last month that has given to us even with the student that if we see someone who's been afflicted with the illness or is cruel
What are we supposed to say?
Alhamdulillah the Avada we think last month Allah from the he has any any forgiven we don't have the same illness or the same defect this person has we think Allah subhanaw taala banana and this is from the hikma, which people so why are people some people crippled? Why are simple blind. As a reminder to us, one of the takeaways from it is a reminder to us of the blessing that we have. And I'll tell you any very one of the best stories I've heard about this is by Sheikh Mohammed has sent me I'll protect him. He mentioned that one time he visited a brother and in Egypt and the husband who was a doctor at
a mental Institute's nicodemo, station, Virginia, Arabic, which is their English service is better mental illnesses to or we translate as a crazy person, hospital, person who has what has lost any day it was not seen. Now these hospitals, people who are who are May Allah cure them, and bring them back to their their right state of mind, but have a special hospital for these people. So he said as we were sitting there, he said, a young lady came into the room.
And he said she looked perfectly normal.
And she was very beautiful. She was in front of us. He said, I looked down not to look at her obviously as as it was in front of us. And she said then she started dance.
So she was looking at it, but it was this. As she starts to dance, he starts to strip from her clothes, take off our clothes until she's naked standing there. But this year, she was looking down like this Now, what is this? And then she comes and takes the portrait like I have on my off the ship. And she was like, What is this? You know? So they came they actually grabbed and took her away. And the doctor was there. He said, I'm so sorry, she, he said I noticed when she looks very normal. She's a beautiful, beautiful girl. She looks normal. But she's crazy. She has no idea what she's doing. So she is so penalised that I benefited so much from this story. He said, What like,
Did I ever think Allah subhanaw taala for the blessing of being seen is so light every day for that day? Have any of you asked yourself now? Have you ever thanked the law that you're not any mentally ill?
adolescence, it's a great name a great blessing. And most of us and I think the last panel for this. So this is what we need to do is reflect on his own his own his own his blessings allows kindness. Now if we look at the other countries who are more and this and the people who are not eating and we look at the narrow we have the blessing fulness, Matata, this fills our heart with a level of loss of bandwidth on the seventh way to fill our heart with a level of loss of data is humbling our hearts in front of a law.
And when you look in the beginning of the movie noon, a lot praises the
believers and will be known who have been successful. What's the first characteristic he mentioned? but barely. The believers have been successful. What's the first characteristic he mentioned, Jeff, that
led home this a lot. Because you, those who are in their prayers cause your own, they're humble in their prayers, they benefit from their prayers. So humbly in our hearts in front of Allah subhana wa tada because nobody can forgive us if
we cannot gain any fear in this dunya and the alcohol in the hereafter except for through a loss of power with Allah. So we humble our hearts in front of our law, we attach our hearts to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And through this inshallah, we will fill our hearts with the love of Allah. If you look at the ones who came before us from the scholars of Islam, and the pious ones in Islam, and look at their prayer and look at our prayer, which are the examples before the people when they go, and they think about the things that they've done yet. Here's two examples. Even though the bare upper limbs are below the long run, or the lower abdomen
his nickname was Hana metal machines and the pigeon of the machines. Why because he was always there and just like you know, a pigeon is always in a certain area. That's where he was. And they still want to use the mix to do that the pigeons itself they would come and they would land on his back. Because how long he would be instituting prostrating making do the birds actually think it was a non non human and come and land on his back and just you know, kind of hanging out on his back for some time because he's there Institute's to Panama to see how they how they were in our salon and now we'd like to process them sitting Heidi like the chicken who picks when hurry to get done. Because
we have to check our phone. Make sure who called us or blackberry where the BlackBerry if we have bvf you know bvf
my students so No, no, no, sir as BB M. blogger, messy nose BBF blackberry fever, where they're addicted. Now I had a student today, for the second time, I caught her with her Blackberry. So I took it and she said no, I'll die without it. Sir. You have to keep can't give it into the administration. I'll be the best student will live for the first time. As to all the questions. I said, Well, I didn't know you could do this. He's one of the worst students in the class. But today, Michelle
Working on everything I asked her. If she didn't know she's open up the nose and she found it right away. Mashallah, Monica. Because she has she has BBF she has to have with her. So paralyzed. It's addictive. So now we're in a hurry to pray. Muslim ESR from the seller for him alone. They said that the masjid he was praying in the wall collapsed inside the masjid. And it started all the people in the market around the masjid. And they looked in, they found him still in his prayer didn't even move for his prayer, because he was still concentrating on it, he didn't realize that the wall had collapsed. And now anything happens around us we know, also one of the Sahaba when he had to get his
leg amputated. They said go to him when he's in prayer, and then empty his leg because he wouldn't take anesthesia. So he said, How can we do it so he won't even feel he won't even budge. He said, let's just do it. So they went, they cut off his negative brain. They have a data for their operation. And he didn't realize what was happening to him because he was so focused on his prayer, some people say we'll never reach that level.
Okay, let's see, if we don't reach the level. If we reach 25% of that level 25% is a good blessing. So we want you to focus on is trying to humble our hearts in front of Allah subhanaw taala in our acts of worship, some of the things that can help us have three points here that can help us and humbling our hearts and benefiting from our salaat when it comes to having for sure. And being humble in our prayers, the first way is to empty our heart from everything else. And this is when you know the importance of a lot of selecting Islam noticed as the importance of this empty heart for everything we mentioned before the importance of doing the NOFA as a warm up, actually prepares
you for the site itself. The second thing is understanding the meanings of what you're saying. It's very important for the non Arabs, because you're speaking a language you understand. So you're saying things it's like it becomes a routine, you understand what you're saying? Well, you understand what you're saying you have to understand Arabic to reflect on the meanings. So also doesn't make them a routine. Do something you're saying that means you need to know that means that what you're saying and reflect on them. And thirdly, to know the greatness of who you are standing in front of them.
We know the greatest of all if we were going out to one of the rulers or somebody important, how will we be standing in front of them.
There's no standard for us standing straight to make sure you look good, you know, you're standing instead of boom, stand in front of a wall. simply look at the watch and this. Somebody might tell us his cell phone. He's praying he's looking around
as his hands down this one when they get in the front, like he's bored like this.
So now we think about the greatness of we're standing in front of obviously this helpless and humbling Arts in front of Allah subhana wa Tada. The eighth way to fill our heart with a level of loss of power dialer is isolating ourselves for the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the last third of the night, when he descends subhana wa Tada This guy of the dunya to pray and to read his words the Quran and to call upon him to make dua to Allah without isolating ourselves during this time. How does it affect our human? We see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam focused on pmla the night prayer even before the Salah was made in Islam, these steps a lot. They knew a lot. But it
was not made for the five daily prayers until three years before they hit you. So now even from the beginning of Islam, he focused on the doubted to heat that purity. It's not a matter of theism. And secondly, the ninth prayer. What were the effects of this later when they went to Medina, when issues came, the covenant became different Freud came Jihad became logic, all these things, because they were very strong in their email and they were able to take anything that came to them. So this was this is the effects that have and also one of the greatest ways to know gain and loss is through the night prayer, because nobody can see you do it. Now when you go to the merchant, Mashallah he's
a solid, he's a pious person, you always see him in the five prayers, but not a prayer who sees you nobody except to sit the last panel with data. So when you sacrifice from this time and you get up and you pray at night, and you strive for our last panel, tada, this is one of the best ways to fill your heart with the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you see a loss of autonomy, praises and sort of such that verse 16, when he praises the people of the night prayer, he said to the Jeff edge and whom
their sides come up from this from their bits from the rest. Why, what are they doing in the owner of the home, Hoeven, Obama, they call on the Lord through hoping through fear. And this is the you see the praise also he says and another verse that he adds verse 1718, Kendall, Kelly lemon and layli.
Mobile as Harry who Mr. Pharaoh, that very little to the night they did not want to pray. And at the SRU before the budget time they are seeking forgiveness making is too far. And you'll see that the cilip the pious predecessors who came before us, they used to
become very heavy at the night game. If Rahul became very happy that I came, why because time to sleep after a long day's work, because it's time for the snipers closer now. And that's why I was truly man.
dharani came along, he said that the people of the night prayer in their night, he said they find more pleasure in the people who are playing around with funding games than they find in their nights. And he said, if it wasn't for the nights, I wouldn't want to stay in this dunya and Ramadan, Papa for the long run, he said, if it wasn't for three things, I wouldn't want to stay in this dunya he mentioned from them, seeking knowledge and benefiting from knowledge. And he mentioned from Jasmine Fisichella, and he mentioned the night prayer, sniper, you see the effect that had on them, and they're human. And this is how you can feel your heart with a level of discipline with Allah,
the ninth point, and we're almost there come to now, because I don't maybe sometimes the sisters they have more desire in their brothers and on the brothers on the faces, you know, getting longer and I wish
nobody said okay, by the way, because I'm only one person. We had the sisters that okay to get one brothers, they continue the rest of others, like, I'm not gonna say anything, but I'm dead. So we're almost there.
We have two quick points, and shall we finish the ninth point or how to fill your love with fill your heart with the love of the law is any loving and sitting with the pious, those people who are pious, loving them and sitting with them, and trying to benefit from the good things they say, and what they have to offer for you. As we mentioned, for example, shipping beds, we used to sit with him, we will grow an email, you see the student will go away from stay with him. He's not allowed hamdulillah if you try to be like the chef and you'd be benefiting, because when you sit with the pious people, you gain from them. And we mentioned what above said the three things he mentioned
from it was obviously sitting and benefiting from the scholars of Islam as well.
And as the prophets of mycelium said, Elmo, Allah de Leon Bora hadoken, Manu Holly, that a person is on the religion of his friend. So one of you should see who he befriends, because this is how they're going to affect you for me since I was pious and somebody was going to remind you of, of Allah subhanho wa Taala becoming closer to Allah subhanaw taala you see somebody that dunya you're talking about blackberry?
The new Dunkin Donuts if there's anything new, I don't know. It just thinks about the new car Lamborghini this Ferrari.
And he's miskeen he can't he's poor. Like you can't buy it either. But you know, just because it's hard to test these new new thing. He's talking about it this way, especially this is gonna affect you. And then maybe he'll say, okay, she said time says when she said what? There is time. Oh, there's a good film coming on TV now. So he's going to what? So you need to see who is your friend? And even though Josie Rahim Allah very beneficial. I mentioned it quickly. He mentioned, when you pick a friend, you choose a friend. He said, You'll focus on five characteristics that you find in this person, five characteristics. He said the first one is that obviously that he's somebody who
was seen, so it was often not seen, obviously, you got to match noon with him as well. So it has to be seen. Secondly, he has to have good character and good manners. person who has good character and good manners, because obviously you want that to rub off on you as well. Thirdly, these net festivities that's how he was disobedient to Allah subhanaw taala. So there's a lot of Haram. So obviously, it's gonna affect you in the same way. And thirdly, or fourthly, that he's not somebody who's
always as inhibited in the religion. Because if you even if he's trying to do religious aspects of the religion, or religious things, but it's not from the religion itself, it's something innovative, it's no good coming up. I mean, you were doing things you think is religious, but it ended up it will be a sentence that have benefited, and fifthly there is not somebody who strives for the dunya is hard as attached to the dunya. Because it is obviously as we mentioned the stories. He's also going to have you this and we want you to understand we live in a society where the junior is very strong here. It's okay to have things from the dunya if it's what helps you to get to the hereafter.
Now to have a nice car, have a nice clean house which helps you and he reflect and helps you relax so you can focus on it but it's all good things. Something you shouldn't we shouldn't have to we have to sleep You know, on the on the ground. No. A man comes home tonight he says no, Honey, look, we heard the chick said about the dunya with the throughout the bed was asleep on the floor. When should we have done yeah, that's not what we mean. But you don't want to have to go to extremes all the time. Islam is always something that's in the middle. In any aspect of SME always find something in middle. We don't want to be somebody who walks around with ripped up shoes and ripped up clothes
and we sell we don't wanna be attached to the dunya because as the promises when he was asked for a personalized have Nice, nice, nice clothes and nice shoes. He said in the large I mean, very large, beautiful and he loves something that's beautiful. So always have something that's in the middle path. After that, we have something we mentioned.
Even okay mentioned quickly as well five or six points on which and five of them about what you gain from sitting with the pious people. What you gain when you sit with those who are pious and slander him. He said First of all, they take you from check to appeal from uncertainty to certainty. And that's a very important area that you have your pain in your mind. So they take you out of your pain and then from react to a floss from that which is a
Yeah, you're doing for other other than a lot of fun without a ship to a cluster of sincerity and all of your actions because obviously the people were really pious, they are sincere their actions. So they guide you through that as well. And then from the muffler to that, and it absent mindedness to be reminded, remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then from the robot, the desire that dounia to the desire and hereafter, and also you mentioned from the kibble to the tomato from being somebody who is proud or conceited to somebody who is humble. The last point that they mentioned in the waste of filler love hearts with a level of loss to partner with Allah was staying away from all
the things that come between our hearts and the loss of data.
staying away from all of the things that come between our hearts and the loss of power with silence. And people differ when it comes to this. Everybody has their weak points. And the thing that comes between him and a lot. Look at this story and always remind yourself this story, the story of our body.
Our thought if the guy's a Muslim or non Muslim, non Muslim, then he strived for Islam to spread and help us now. If he did, he probably did more than most of us will ever do for Islam and he was a capital.
What came between him and did he deny the fact that what the prophesied center was saying was Huck was the truth. Islam was the truth. He did not know he did. He knows the truth. Why didn't he accept
because he had a weak point. And his companions we go back to having good friends who call it was good. He had bad friends. And then the peer pressure got to him when he's on his deathbed. The promises and came to him he said, Yeah, poodle Kadima BALCO say a word, that we'll be able to defend you with the last motto from this word, say Layla in law. So he knows is the truth that he wants to say it, he's on his deathbed. But then on the other side of the room, he has a blue jacket
and the and the crew from fresh water call him to evil they know his weak spot, his weak spot is
the traditions, the tribalism, the thing the forefathers won. This is where this is least one thing and they knew it.
So the shape honor system, it looks
when you turn away when the religion of your of your grandfather, your father,
and be careful. How will people remember if you reject the original your father, so this was his weak point. So he said, He's in the middle of the original Tommy died.
So now everybody knows his weak point what becomes between your heart and between Allah subhanho wa Taala we need to focus on there's a lot of things that maybe things are greater. So you have to start pulling yourself away from these things. It could be the environment you're in the people you hang out with these type of things each week, you have we have to focus on getting this away from ourselves. So it doesn't become between our hearts of doing lots of data and with this, and the other night that we mentioned inshallah, we will fill our hearts with a local law.

Long day work.
First of all, by focusing on the important that you focus on the importance of the prayer, and we mentioned also the focus on who you're standing in front of Allah subhana wa, Tada. Empty in your heart. You have to it's something that takes magentas tribe
It's not something easy to do, you have to strive to do it. And we've mentioned the thing about the no alpha first to kind of get yourself any energy if you focus also on the meanings and he's mentioned, because for example, one of the things when the door is stiff,
which is the introduction or supplication, even discuss mentioned he said this is served as a reminder, as yourself to to before you start to read the Koran before you start to focus on this a lot. You need to focus on start emptying your heart. So you have to strive to do is that easy, you have to find authorship on and try to try to focus on the things that helps you is to remind yourself, who you're standing in front of you stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala and focus on the meanings of what you're reading, because we've all been on the meanings. This will affect obviously what you're saying, you look at the beautiful asanas process and when you read, he will
stop and reflect sometimes, if he came to a higher, they had something about the people of the night or somebody this Hellfire, he will seek refuge in alone. If there was something to be asked he would ask Allah subhana wa tada which means he will what he will reflect on what he was reading and he knew the meanings of it. So we need to reflect on the meanings and understand them. And also you think about the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala the greatness of Salaam and shall visit from the things that help you maybe go in detail more inshallah, in the future, he will maybe a lecture about that about ways to find horseshoe and salon.
Any other questions?
Every place has only in questions. I don't know how you do it here. When we were in Qatar, the questions come from the ladies side, it comes down comes down from the top see the falling down on the thing. So I could see them falling down. And for the Becca to Google this question with their questions. The sisters would throw the questions down which
so that's it. There's no other questions. colonnades.
The duals that are solid, no, do it outside of slabs use in your own language.
They do as insolite you say them only in Arabic, but they do it outside so that it's better to actually say in your language, you understand what you're saying. And I mentioned this yesterday when I was filming, or the police today was filming for the Sharjah TV
program doing about Hajj, the importance of making do out you make the off in your head in your own language. Because a lot of people now they do other things. They think these books that have the meanings in Arabic do as they're making do out have one guy who is there who is Arabic, you know, so he might understand he reads it. So he's making the dua
and they have no idea what they're saying. Isn't that what he wants from us, he understands all the languages. He wants us to focus on these days on, on humble ourselves and making dua repenting to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we should focus on doing our own language. Even if you know Arabic In English, I know Arabic cannot do but you find that you have more for sure. When you make dua in order to do it, for example, because it will have the effect on your heart This is the goal is where to affect your heart. And I remember I was at when I was in milk cows in Michigan, and my friend was from from the UK was there he was making cloth and he understands Arabic, he studied Korean mocha.
So you never believe what just happened. I said, What happened? He said, The guys reading the book, they bought it from them. And they went to the footnote in the footnote said you can take raw how to do
any kimata show that you can repeat this to as many times as you want. So we didn't know what I mean. So he read it. So you can take her to us in the back you can take Corolla to a coma Tisha they're all say behind him, you can repeat this as many times you see you see any so they follow the stupid and unfortunately because they don't know what they're reading and they make fools of themselves and it's not we're supposed to be doing and certain things that they shouldn't do as you make it as opposed to some did in the salon, even the Hajj itself. You make them in Arabic because they're nervous, but they do it make dua focus on your language, but inshallah and he eventually, as
our teachers always say to us, I still remember his words even today when we went to the second level and the Arabic department in the University of Medina. He used to tell us every day he was very, very good. And he was the son of one of the major scholars of Rahim Allah and Medina from Nigeria originally but he is a national and he used to always say to us, Hulu God didn't Sorbonne
it's basically information but he's always said everything new is difficult. But he's to say it's so much and he's to say just like this Hulu Jaden sabon. So now still in my head. So now you know anything new is difficult, anything new you want to do. If I want to learn about computers now, I don't know much. Want to get specialized to be an IT specialist. It's gonna be easy.
can be difficult at first, once I start to get the hang of it, it's gonna be difficult. It's gonna it's gonna be easy at the end. Also, when you start to memorize do eyes and you'll have Arabic language. The first one is very difficult the second one, like the third, when you start to get the hang of it, your tongue starts to adjust to it, you start to learn you come to the Center for example, I'm sure they have Arabic lessons here, you start to learn alphabet Jima, we start to learn the Arabic alphabet and your tongue starts to come with it and then eventually you'll get in jello
excuse me do actually I didn't catch the last part
there's never been a confirm that you will put on and Institute
the verses of your Do you can use these obviously like for example the end of sort of Baccarat sound like this is how you can use these anchors or do it themselves instead this okay, but if it's never been confirmed, that you read elsewhere. So now you're not supposed to read it in only in this case. And you have because you have certain you're supposed to use as a process that I used to do at the same time you have
you have the you know the general UI that you make to ask for things and if he knows that what that is is feeling a
there's also a deed I cannot remember the exact text which forbidden actually to read the institute and and record as well. So it actually is forbidden in another had to eat but I'm not remember the exact text. When we asked him to shift shed he said he confirmed it as well. I remembered it but I don't remember that the text. So you're not allowed to read it in sudo or in record.
The brothers are ready to go boom. And so it sisters You have the floor and shuttle. But your questions will make it quick. So
okay, I understand a question. And generally I don't agree that you cannot dismiss yourself. Because I myself work in an environment like that, where the majority of the people with us are non Muslims of this stuff. But I'm able to distance myself I practice my religion, we have an escort. So it's basically as an Islamic any.
Any, I guess you could say any values into it. And they but in general, we do have the majority of teachers are anonymous.
So the thing is, and we mixed with them, obviously we have to, because we're in the same place. But at certain times, you'll find yourself I'll be with the good Muslim brothers who are practicing and I won't be with them, I don't deal with them all the time, you don't have to represent when you eat your lunch, you're not forced to eat your lunch with them, you might want to and then associate those Actually, it's a good thing, but they're giving down to you not giving down to them and it is the problem. So you start to get affected, that's what happens. So now you condition yourself to you might not be able to 100% like for example means you have to go to meetings. But you have to
also, you have to try to extend to distance yourself because you can't see what the people what he was supposed to be talking about Islam, also you can you can give them advice, you know, say please do not talk badly about our religion. And also you know that any by law here, you need to talk offensive or Islam is against the law. And they could actually be deported from the country. So even though we hear the a lot of things, he is very open any like on the streets and help you address what have you. At the same time. The government of they're very strict about any offensive things against Islam, they don't go for it. So you have to be really, they have to be very careful about
that. So you can even throw that out there. For example, you know, oh, by the way, the law is this and I don't know, let's just please You know, I don't want you to get in trouble. And I know what you offend me as a Muslim. So they don't wanna get in trouble because they're here making more money they will make in their own countries, you know. So this is the case that a lot of with a lot of many ways. So it is a certain ways, but you try to distance yourself as much as possible. I know sometimes it might be difficult, you're mixing, but obviously the law committed as if you're sitting with the people are talking about bad things that you must distance yourself and go away from them.
So you must try to understand even if you can't do a 100% at the end of the day, if you feel it's a job. They
is really really affecting your religion. And it's making religion very bad look for another job and the mantra cache Lila
whoever leaves something for loss upon what Allah will give him better return. And it's all we have to help with this comes to the issue of the man. We are going to be attached to what's pleasing to Allah, what's going to be attached to the dunya is alive. He zeroes out. He's gonna give us our Are we the dunya is where we get our provision from. So we have this issue of Eman And I don't say now go tomorrow and resign, look for another job at the same time. And then when you finally go resign
in industry now you do it very much. And then shallow, this is always in general, to get to the prom. Is that the last question or the more?
Okay, is that gonna fade on?
